The Departments are the Naval Academy and the Naval Academy succeeds in its mission if the departments succeed. We honor and respect tradition. We cherish its ideals and we strive to accom- plish those things which tradition stipulates. Yet without Mathemat- ics, Navigation, Ordnance, without Seamanship, Engineering, and the rest, this is impossible. Glorious victory, the finest tradition, and the most powerful history, all are based upon years of routine labor at these subjects. The other side of our first big river has been reached. We have learned to respect and admire this silent, and all powerful stream of knowledge. We have tasted our first victory with its help. We have learned the power of knowledge and how to use it. Could we ask for more ? i ▼TTTTTrrrrTTrrnTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTf EDGE— SEA POWER 31 V- m i V v ▼▼ ■ " £i • - f : f t ♦.$. ' : •f ■ f It ■•tj.f If ' w ' t V?

The work of indoctrinating the new plebes with Service standards, the teaching and the interpretation of Naval traditions, the impressing of the paramount importance of duty, this and more come under its cur- riculum. It is the spirit of this department that, to a major extent, determines the spirit of the regiment. While other departments may boast of the building of minds this department is concerned with character. It further strives to bring about the needed cooperation between the two. When mind and character are developed and their respective fields merge into one plane of objective, the desired result has been attained. To lead, one must first learn to follow. The three years of follow- ing are well worth the opportunity of leading during first class year. The change from follower to leader must be gradual and pains- takingly slow in its thoroughness. To this end, the Executive Department adds responsibility in increasing amounts each year. It does not strive to make a John Paul Jones in the four years but it does furnish the form and pattern for the making Jtk of a successful Naval Officer and leader in later years. Capt. S.

H. A. Baldridge Seamanship and Flight Tactics r HE word " Seamanship " is very closelv allied with the word " Navy. " One word suggests the other. The Seamanship Depart- ment brings the Navy to the Midshipman as well as is possible before the first cruise is made in the summer. We shall never forget our first day at cutter drill ! We shall never forget the first attempts at bringing the sub-chaser alongside the dock. Though little similarity can be seen between the two, their purpose in training us has been the same. It is the Department of Seamanship that strives to give the mid- shipman a ground work of practical seamanship as well as its theory. The age of iron has shadowed the age of wood. Men with a thor- ough and familiar knowledge of seamanship were needed to handle these sailing ships. The same practical knowledge is required to handle the steel, steam driven battleship of today. Yes, a finer knowledge is even required. In battle you handle your ship to out-wit and out-seamanship your enemy. This was done a thou- sand years ago; it is done today; it will be done in naval warfare a thousand years hence. r£ 35 Top Row: Skinner, Van Cleave, Cunningham, Doolin, Pearson, Osborn Middle Row: Buchanan, Hibbs, Rooks, Palmer, Cooley, Corn, DeLong Seated: Parr, Smith, Howard, Hedrick, Hall Ordnance and Gunnery TO train officers whose sole purpose in battle is to hit the enemy quicklv and continuously with destructive gun fire to sink or permanently disable his ships, that is the major work of the Depart- ment of Ordnance and Gunnery. Practice and training in small arms opens the way into the field of powder and shell. The ascent to the large caliber guns is rapid, and on the first cruise the midshipmen are members of gun crews whose military machine sends the huge mass of destructive steel beyond the horizon to hit the target invisible. The Naval Academy course in this interesting and valuable sub- ject provides a solid foundation for the professional and working knowledge that is required in the tleet. The Navy is proud of its gunnerv. Since the days of the romantic frigate with its queer- looking guns our ships have led the field in speed and accuracy in the destruction of the enemy. We have these traditions to uphold and there is one way to do it: We must gain knowledge of Ordnance which will never fail, however, unusual the odds and circumstances may be. Comdr. D. L.

To make the reply accurate as well as expeditious, that is the purpose of training in Navigation. A lost ship is a loss to the Service. A floundering one is working wastefully and dangerously. A ship out of position is out of battle and worse, useless and a menace to her sisters. There is no need for stressing the value of Navigation. Its need is too apparent. The second classman receives the first introduction to navigation. The work is interesting from the very beginning. The practical side of the subject is soon seen and realized. The work becomes something more than the mere addition of columns of figures and the feverish thumbing of tables and almanacs. There is a concrete, vital goal, — a fix. Capt. R. C. MacFall They who have shot the heavenly bodies with a sextant and obtained a " pin-point " three star fix, can feel satisfaction and pride in the work. A trackless ocean, an empty horizon, and yet a positive assertion: " Here I am, and I know it. " But our work in this art does not end here; in fact nothing but the groundwork has been laid, upon which, during our future years in the Service, we will build the skill and tech- nique of a finished Navigator. ». s ss 39 • -49 .«» ' w- 2r H .

There is no public glory awaiting you for a life-time devotion in this department and there may be a thousand strained and somewhat unpleasant moments before the retired or casualty list calls you for its own. Everybody will blame you for the smoke that belches from the pipe. Everybody will blame you for the peculiar attitude that the ice machines will, unwittingly and without consideration for you, assume in the tropics while you roast and broil in the engine room taking indicator card readings. All the scuttle butt trouble will claim you. The newspapers may not write you up. The rotogravure sections may not illustrate your deeds. People speak of you in terms of horse power; but we of the service know better. You are one of the gang. One of the many whose unselfish cooperation makes the Navy and its glorious deeds possible.

H. E. Rossell Mathematics THE Second class entomb mathematics for eternity. The next day it resurrects for a more permanent and active detail. If you intend to stay in the service your mathematics becomes part of your per- sonal equipment. Little wonder that you meet it every day during plebe year. Frequent repetitions will help get it into the mental system. There is something more to gain in the working of mathematical problems than the finite conclusion in answer form. We gain cour- age from attempts which turn out successfully. Perseverance and ability to think are put to test during a calculation. The will to concentrate must be employed through distracting mental hazards. All these are aids in building up mind and character. Aside from this aspect, the foundation for the majority of professional subjects is being built. A good mathematician stands well to make an excellent officer. Dog-eared log books, burnt out slide rules, manuals; all of »m — — a. these are fundamentals which must never be forgotten in the % long years that follow graduation.

It has changed the Navy for the better. It has changed and revolutionized labor. It has been the means of constructing the eighth wonder of the world, our new air- craft carrier, the U.S.S. Lexington. The Naval Service has been electrified. What a contrast from the romantic wood and sail of the eighteenth century to fast and efficient steel and electrical dreadnaught of today. The movement of one control lever and the gigantic mass of some forty thousand tons is on its way, gaining momentum quickly and quietly. Forty thousand tons at forty miles an hour; and carrying over two hundred ships of the air that can rise from its eight hundred foot stretch of deck, whenever duty calls! A real wonder of the world. Electricity runs our navy. The huge electric motors that drive the screws, the powerful transmitting sets that make trans-oceanic communication possible, the gyro compass that is invaluable, the countless motors that drive the necessary ventilation systems, the tireless electrical machines that direct our destructive turret guns, all these and more are today made to function by electricity.

' ' It is the aim of the department to make our knowledge of the English Language a practical and working knowledge. No one quality of a leader can do more to win the hearts and loyalty of his subordinates than his speech, his choice of words, and his sincerity in language. Public speaking is included under the academic jurisdiction of the English Department. This instruction proves its worth soon after graduation. The officer is called frequently to speak. Many times the call comes to speak extemporaneously. Remember, a good speech is expected from you. What finer feeling can be deserved than the one which follows a talk that has been " put across. " A Naval officer must also be a writer. His practice covers a wide field. From the personal letters to friends at home to the exacting, technical battle report, the work must be done __ . - ■mwivf . a it - ... . ii Prof. C. S. Alden well and with dispatch.

It must speak and understand the language of every land. The officer is now the linguist. It is impossible to teach a language thoroughly in three years and no attempt is made to do so. This department, however, is con- cerned in making a language an interesting diversion, a hobby which will be continued after graduation. For those who aspire to diplomatic duty, one huge item toward qualification is a knowledge of a foreign language. Other require- ments are considered subsiduary. Opportunity for foreign travel is frequent. Your enjoyment and pleasure will be proportional to the degree that you understand and are understood by the natives. To speak a language beside your own, is an accomplishment that has practical value in any life and in any profession. To force this end upon us the " Dago " department has strug- gled mightily these past four years. Verbs, type sentences, " commissions " and all have been our lot in the development of a nimble tongue. Perhaps not now but later we will appreciate their efforts, when we find to our surprise that we can make headway with Senoritas and Mademoiselles. Capt. G. V.

Physiology, First Aid, and Naval Hygiene are required in the every-day life of every naval officer. The conditions of life are necessarily crowded on a ship. The , health of the crew becomes increasingly important. Only a practice k L of ideal hvgienic conditions can bring out the desired results. S kX Tie junior officer may suddenly find himself in command ol .1 ■ ' H landing force. The detachment soon becomes isolated and the officer meets the responsibility of keeping the crew in health. All injuries and disease must be treated effectively. Camp sites must be favorably chosen and the needed construction work done immediately. With these points in mind the place of this department in our curriculum becomes a permanent one. The value of a general knowledge of these points can not be stressed too much. While the series of lectures given on these subjects has been of inestimable value, yet more must be done to equip oneself with the requisites of Hygiene which will be demanded by the Naval Service at those times when we least expect it.

Health is paramount for active life; a strong bodv is required to carry on the two score and more vears of active duty that confronts a Naval Officer. The Physical Training Department is also the training camp for sports. The rudiments of all fleet sports are taught meticulously and for a purpose. After graduation, the midshipman becomes the coach. As a coach his success depends upon the knowledge that he has absorbed under this department. This department emphasizes another phase of physical training, that of self defense. You cannot make assertions unless you stand up for them and give evidence; and many times the evidence called for is physical. This training requires no special apparatus and can be continued easily and profitably after graduation. Davs and weeks of " Belly up, 1-2. " have perhaps seemed drudgery to us, but now that this is all past we go into the fleet better prepared to answer the demands of the Service with little fear of physi- cal incompetence. Comdr. I. H.

A Post Graduate . . . ■ rrtrrrtrTT " The Post-Graduate Captain Albert T. Church Head of the Post Graduate School OBJECT THE Post Graduate School affords officers the opportunity of securing additional equipment by means of which they may pursue their naval profession to greater advantage. Supplemented by leading Universities it maintains courses of instruction for advanced education and training. Its objects are to supply a fund of general and technical knowledge that will promote efficiency in the naval service; to train in power, initiative and self-confidence so that problems may be solved intelligently and wisely. D ■ i The Post Graduate School. . . . A Stepping Stone to Command nmn r - MiHmmnimtmffT 61 r ■ ■W W I ' ' n TTT TTTTTTTT TTff H I I f » ' T ' W I W The Post-Graduate Historical Sketch Experimental Turho-Gcncrators WITH the transition from sail to steam, the need for technical education for a percent- age of its officers became apparent to a few far- seeing men of the Navy. In 1871 Cadet-Engineers began their education at the Naval Academy. It was soon realized that all Naval Officers should possess at least the rudiments of a techni- cal education and in 1899 the Engineer Corps and the Line were amalgamated. From then on Marine Engineering became obligatory for all Naval Officers. Contemporary with this occurred the real beginning of post-graduate education for Naval Officers. In 1881 Cadet-Engineer Francis T. Bowles, after many difficulties, obtained appoint- ment for himself and a classmate, Richard Gatewood, as Assistant Naval Constructors and permission to attend the Royal Naval College at Greenwich, England, to take the course in Naval Architecture. The expense had to be borne by themselves. The Navy Department later gave this idea its support and two or more officers pursued a similar post-graduate course each year at Greenwich, Glasgow, or Paris. This practice continued until about 1900 when, for a year or so Naval Construction was taught as a post-graduate course at the Naval Academy. Finally, about 1903, arrangements were made whereby our Naval Constructors were to be educated at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where they are still sent for this specialization work. Selection of Officers During this same vear the Navy Department began the practice of selecting two or three officers from each class as thev attained the rank of Ensign some two or three years after they graduated from the Academy, to receive special work in Ordnance and Steam Engineering. Later Electricity and Radio were added to these subjects. The work done was largely practical and in government or private plants where Naval material was being handled; there was little or no formal instruction. By 1912. the Post Graduate School of today had taken definite form under Captain J. P. Morton. He was succeeded by Captain John Halligan, who was still head of the school in 1 917 when the imminence of our entry into the war put the school out of commission. During this five-year period the Post Graduate School took charge of the technical post-graduate edu- cation of Officers in Steam and Electrical Engi- neering, Radio, Naval Construction, some of the Ordnance work, and the rudiments of Law. Also during this period was established the general plan of about one year at the " Ground- work School " in Annapolis and at least a year at the university or college considered most efficient in the particular specialty desired. The Physics Laboratory In 1 9 1 9 the Post Graduate School was re-com- ' i S 62. .-1 Study Hall, P.G. School missioned and reopened in its present form by the Secretary of the Navy. When reopened the school was established in its present head- quarters, which were formerly used as Marine Barracks. Since then the scope of the school has been constantly widening. In i xz the student Civil Engineers were sent there for a year of preliminary training, and a General Line course was added in 192.7. The School is growing steadily and has a future of great value to the Navy ahead of it. Officers are selected for technical post-graduate instruction from among those who apply for this duty either in their fitness reports or by special letter. Forwarding seniors endorse the applications with full and pertinent comments concerning the officer ' s fitness and qualification for that dutv. The conditions which they must fulfill and the number of officers to be selected for each class are determined by the Bureau of Navigation. This as well as all other data, such as com- mencement of the various courses, time and place of reporting, and simil ar details is published annually in the form of a circular letter. In addition to all other factors eligibility depends on the length of time that has elapsed since the applicant ' s graduation from the Naval Academy. Student Naval Constructors are usually eligible for post-graduate work within two years of graduation. Those embarking in the Supply Corps usually are sent to graduate work after a year or so of sea- duty. Selections for the other courses are made only after the candidate has been out of the Academy for five or six years. A special Board appointed by the Bureau of Navigation passes on the applicants and selects the number prescribed. Apportionment of Time The usual period required for the technical courses is two years and follows this general schedule: The officers report to the Post Graduate School in Annapolis in June. The summer is devoted to practi- cal work, and an endeavor is made to develop the habit of observation to such an extent that an ability to make quick, efficient surveys of the layouts, equipment, and personnel of shops and plants visited may be acquired. The habit of observation is of incalculable value to any officer. Journals containing observations and a record of the activities pursued are kept with a view to future use. These are sub- mitted to the Head of the Post Graduate School at the end of the summer for inspection, then are re- turned to their owners. After the summer course the Post-Graduate student is readv to begin his instruction proper. This is dealt with in two phases; the first consists of preparation and groundwork at the Post Graduate School in Annapolis, and is along the fundamental lines common to all forms of en- gineering. From eight months to a year, de- pending on the course, are devoted to this. The first phase prepares for, leads up to, and merges with the second phase. Upon completion of the first phase the P. G. is sent to the civil univer- sity offering the best available facilities in his chosen line of work. There, for a period of from eight to sixteen months, he receives advanced training and specialization in that work. The closest possible coordination is maintained be- When Oman Spark and Flash 63 HHMHMH t MM T M I H I H i m I H ' HH ' H ' J fg KZiJB - He Must Know All Phases tween the groundwork school and the civil uni- versities so that the entire post-graduate train- ing mav progress in regular steps. Then in order to round off his training completely, the student devotes from four to ten months to work in some industrial plant that gives full play to his theoretical knowledge. The Post Graduate Officer is then ready to take up whatever duties he may be assigned by the Bureau of Navigation with a feeling of being better fitted to carry them out. While speaking of duty after taking Post Graduate work, it might be mentioned that though an effort is made to place each man where he will be most valuable, it is not always possi- ble to do this. But it is the policy of the Bureau to eventually make use of every Officer in those lines along which he has been specially trained. Several years may elapse, but eventually he will take his place as an expert on the staff " of some " Higher Command " afloat or ashore. Technical Instruction The Instruction given at the Post Graduate School in Annapolis — the " Groundwork School " — is conducted by a corps of civilian instructors under the direct supervision of the Head of the Post Graduate School. This School is organized into sections of Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Metals, and Materials. The aim is to develop an all-round capacity and ability along technical lines, and to prepare the student for advanced work to come. Particular emphasis is given to laboratory work in all the different branches. The major subjects dealt with in the technical courses are mathe- matics, physics, and those subjects in Mechanical, Electrical, and Metallurgical Engineering such as Mechanics, Electricity, Sound, Engineering Measurements, Hydraulics, Thermodynamics, Marine Machinery, Engineering Materials, Metals, and Chemistry, of which all technical students must have a knowledge. German is given specially for the Aerological Engineers and Sound for the Communica- tion Engineers. Additional subjects such as English Exposition, Logical Analysis, Scientific Land- marks, and Methods are included. These subjects are supplemented by weekly general lectures. The work outlined for the first three terms covers fundamentals that all should know, and as such all student officers take the same work during those terms. In the fourth term they are separated into their respective groups and are given advanced work along their special lines in direct preparation for their work at civilian universities. ■41 Graduate Science Building, Pitt Testing Crude Oil 6 4 my r nM T m nv Ti nn fTt» T H T r Specialization at Civil Universities THE technical courses at the groundwork- school prepare the student officer for further specialization in Mechanical Engineering (Ma- rine Machinery, Design, Production, Oil and Gas Engines), Electrical Engineering (Propul- sion, Radio, Storage Battery, and Design), Ordnance Engineering (Explosives, Torpedoes, Fire-Control, Metallurgy, Design and Ballistics), Aeronautical Engineering, Naval Construction, and Civil Engineering. This specialization work is done at the most suitable civil Universities. Tuition of the Post Graduate Students at these institutions is paid by the Bureau of Supplies and Accounts, upon requisition by the Head of the Post Graduate School. Orders involving the transfer and travel incident to authorized courses and training are issued by the Bureau of Naviga- tion upon application of the Head of the Post Graduate School via the Superintendent of the Naval Academy. The Law Students receive training at an institution suited in location, facilities, and curriculum for the purpose. Let these selected institutions offer. The P. C. Becomes " Joe College their entire us see what University of Pittsburgh The University of Pittsburgh recently opened a course in Petroleum Engineering and two officers were assigned to take it. In order to prepare themselves they took a six weeks ' course in Elementary Geology during the summer. With the almost exclusive use of oil as a fuel in the Navy, and the extensive emploV- ment of its derivatives for many important purposes, training along this line will be invaluable to the Navy. The subjects given particular attention in this course are Mineralogy with laboratory, Geolo v of Oil and Gas with laboratory, Scientific Methods, Refining of Oils and Geologic Field Methods both with Laboratory, Business of Oil and Gas production, Appraisal, Economics relating to the Petroleum Industry, and Seminar, which is a discussion of current events and business developments and the prep- aration of statistical graphs. These comprise the first term ' s work; the second term subjects follow the same general lines though under different names. Pitt is building a skyscraper " Cathedral of Learning " to house these activities. Columbia University At Columbia University is found the largest group of Naval Officers under post graduate instruc- tion at a civil institution. Its location and splendid facilities in all branches of engineering make it a natural selection. The subjects these Officers are enrolled in are: Mechanical Engineering, Internal Combustion Engines (Diesels), Electrical Engineering, and Metallurgy. Their courses are a direct continuation of the ground work at the Post Graduate School at Annapolis.

The In- ternal Combustion people are taken mainly from submarines, and all have had some experience in engineering. Columbia takes a great ' interest in the activities of her Naval P.G. ' s and her attitude is very helpful. It is realized that he voluntarily comes back to the hard grind of study after several years out of school. Therefore the assumption is made that he is the best judge of those things in the course which will be most useful to himself and to the Navy. Little emphasis is laid on marks and none at all on recitations, with the result that all hands are a great deal keener and more prone to real effort than if merely trying for a passing mark, and much more is obtained from the course. In general, the hours kept are from nine to four, the time being split up between the laboratory, in experimental or prac- tical work, and the lecture room. Outside work is assigned for investigation and research. Problems are given covering the work of the day and these must be solved each night. Thus, though in New York, the time for amusement is limited. George Washington University To George Washington the Navy sends her embryo " Sea-Going Barristers. " Being close to the office of the Judge-Advocate General of the Navy, and to the Supreme Court of the United States, and pos- sessing excellent facilities and curriculum, that university is peculiarly suited to the needs of a Naval Lawyer. Officers of the Marine Corps as well as Officers of the Navy are eligible for this course. Massachusetts Institute of Technology- Massachusetts Institute of Technology, with its enviable reputation in all things engineering, annually gathers into her halls a goodly number of Naval Officers pursuing further knowledge in Aeronautical Engineering, Ordnance work in Torpedoes, Aerology, and Naval Construction. M.I.T. offers a particularly good course in the latter; all Naval Constructors are sent there exclusively. During the so-called Senior year there the following subjects are taken up by them: Alternating Current and Alternating Current Machines, Electrical Engineering, Laboratory, Business Law, Marine Engine Design, Marine Engineering, Naval Architecture, Political Economy, Theory of War- ship Design. The comprehensiveness of this course can be seen from the above and from what follows in thenext or " Graduate year. " Aeronautics, Precision ofMeasure, Rigid Dynamics, and Structure are gone into, and Naval Architecture and Theory of and Warship Design are continued. The course in Aerology is a new one and pertains to Meteorology in all its branches. The work is divided between Harvard University and M.I.T. At the latter Dynamic Meteorology and Physics of the Air are studied. A word as to why the Navy has taken up this course: In recent years the importance of a k nowledge of the weather to cer- tain Naval operations such as long range gunnery, and gas warfare — its importance to Aviation has lung been known and appreciated — has rapidly increased. Hence this course to meet the need of a trained Aerologist for at least every major sub-division of the fleet. University of Michigan For Ordnance work in explosives, the Navy goes west to the University of Michigan. There is a yearly trek of a few selected officers to Ann Arbor to learn from her authorities. A thorough course in the chemistry of higher explosives and toxic gases, with a great deal of work in Interior Ballistics is the lot of these P.G. ' s. After the courses at Michigan they are sent for further work along strictly practical and experimental lines mainly to the New York and New Jersey Inspection District. i i • i I ' iiiicrut) Wall Harvard ggp g rFROM KNOWLEDGE-SEA POWER 66 t nn i M | MmM tt T!T Hm TT1 H TTTTmT T P M I H I H I MIIMIIHH I H i ni ioa,ooo Volt Storage Battery, Cruft Lab. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Those to whom a surveyor ' s chain and transit have an appeal arc sent up the Hudson to Rensselaer Poly. The Civil Engineers of the Navy receive their final schooling there, their preliminary work being done at the P.G. school in Annapolis shortly after being transferred to the Civil Engineers Corps. This body was created in 1867 and until 1:92.2 its members were taken princi- pally from graduates of reputable engineering schools. The policy beginning in iyn is to select members entirely from graduates of the Naval Academy. After the groundwork course the Civil Engineers are sent to R.P.I, for two years. The summer between the courses at the P.G. school and Poly, is spent taking two practice surveying trips. The first year the courses taken a:e Bridge Design, Electrical Engineering, Railroad Engineering, Waterworks, Highways, and Concrete Design. The second summer is spent in obtaining practical experience and train- ing in the city power plants of Philadelphia, New York, Boston, or Hartford. The second year is spent in continuance of, and advanced work in the courses started the first. The course provided for the Civil Engineers is quite complete and includes courses in Design and Practice which are calculated to produce a graduate possessing both theoretical and practical knowledge. Harvard University Harvard and M.I.T. share in their instruction of Naval Officers in Aerology. At Harvard the future Aerologists take courses in Climateology, Aerography — a restricted term for Meteorology, Weather Forecasting, and a Seminar. Certain courses are " taken at Harvard and others at M.I.T. with the result that the P.G. must go back and forth between the two schools. Harvard offers a very fine course in Communication Engineering and Officers are allowed a choice between Harvard and Yale for further work on this subject. The mathematics of Radio is gone into more thoroughly at Harvard, but the practical side is not lost sight of and there is an abundance of laboratory work. Harvard ' s equipment for this work is very complete. Still another of Harvard ' s schools is used for training by the Navy. All the Supply Corps Officers take a course there in Business and General Accounting in order to give them the proper tools with which to perform their complicated duties. Yale University Yale, with its wealth of equipment and high standards, is one of the universities to which the Navy sends men for higher training. The course in Radio is exceptionally good; several Naval Officers are sent there every year to take it. The general plan at the Post Graduate School is to allow the Officers the choice between Harvard and Yale for Radio work. The system at Yale is to make a student use his own ingenuity; to give him the theorv and at the same time, through a comprehensive laboratory course make him think out his problems and draw his own conclusions. This makes for the ideal of a thoroughly theoretical background with an absolutely practical training. School gets under way about the first of October. The course includes: Transient Pheno- mena in Electric Circuits, Sound, Electrical Mea- surements, The Electron Theory, and Vacuum Tubes. They say that the names are really worse than the courses, and being Yale, that " the bark is worse than the Bull-dog. " The P. G. ' s have their classrooms and laboratories in the Electri- cal Engineering Graduate building. The general plan is to have the classroom work in the morn- ing and the " lab " during the afternoon. As someone put it, it is but a short bit to New- York — which is no drawback to bachelor activ- ities in that place -if you can find the time. Widmer Library Harvard.

A true son of the south, his manners are only ex- ceeded by his thoughtfulness. His demo- cratic views have supplemented his mag- netic personality in the acquirement of a clientele of loyal friends which includes even the lowest Plebe. The name of John Quinn is so intimately linked with the history of the Class of Twenty-eight that the mention of one sug- gests the other.

During Second Class Year his devilish characteristics were demonstrated by the success that he made of " CLUB HADES. " Even as a Plebe he gained fame by trying to solve crossword puzzles after taps. In the athletic line, his activities were limited to wielding a lacrosse stick. His pet practice is knocking the front teeth out of classmates in this and other sports. Thanks to kind-hearted roommates and friends he was always able to borrow- enough money to drag frequently.

As such, one can easily conceive him a past master at that (in) famous dance, the Charleston, which has brought him renown from New York to — Statesville. Pete has a propensity for tumbling, first in his entrance into the Academy, then as a gymnast, and finally or repeatedly for the certain parties which change more fre- quently than the seasons. These rolling antics coupled with a bounty of pep secured for him the job of head cheer leader. From the very first month of plebe year Andy looked forward with great anticipa- tion to the Burial of Math — for this subject at first made his future with the Navy look doubtful.

" He tore himself from the high school environment, with its glorious record of his accomplishments, and set forth to take life as he would find it at Annapolis. The first jolt came when he found a banker ' s training wasn ' t needed to care for our monthly insult. Rallving from this blow he sought new fields and pounced upon the Lucky Bag. Assuming the title of Office Manager, he became guardian of check book and ledger with sole power of stamp purchaser. Athletics have also claimed him; in fact Mac is the answer to the company commander ' s prayer. Wrest- ling, tennis, baseball, and also pistol are some of the sports in which he piles up points for the dear old company. Were no mention made of Mac ' s drag- ging activities, an important side of his nature would be left untouched. Tea rooms thrive on his patronage and that of the poor souls he inveigles into dragging blind.

As good- hearted a man as man ever becomes; as industrious as the proverbial bee; and a classmate tried and true, this man is master of his own destiny. He listens to sugges- tion and offers them himself, but everything he does bears the one and only " Harlow " seal. Indeed he stands on his own base, helps others when asked but never asks others for help. The man ' s very physical make-up would seem to suggest this in- dividualistic tendency, for his feet are both somewhat broader and somewhat longer than those of the average man; but anyone can see that they are merely in proportion to those powerful limbs of his that are the envy of every track man. By the aid of those aforesaid legs and his peculiar sea-going swagger, he has guided many a first section over the eroded bricks of Stribling Walk — yes, and often in phase with a drummer sans cadence.

This young gentleman, better known as " Ash, " is a firm believer in that old truth, namely: " there are more ways than one to accomplish the same end. " He dem on- strated this belief when, after having re- ceived a congressional appointment as a midshipman, he was not in the least wor- ried upon being rejected by the board of medical examiners. He pocketed his dis- appointment and immediately reasoned that where his Congressman had failed him in his extremity, the " god of the Sea " would not. Accordingly he cast himself upon the breast of king Neptune and a year later, in reward for his simple faith, was conceived out of the sea, a budding midshipmite. Since then he has engaged in various activities among which the Academic de- partments seem to offer the least concern. His main hobbies are track managing, Japanese, and dreaming of Newport, R. I.

A year later by a little hard work and by virtue of an appointment from the Secretary of the Navy, Mac entered the fin- est school in the world, the U. S. Naval Academy. Part of his dreams were fulfilled. The following summer he wenton Young- ster Cruise with the rest of us and there dis- tinguished himself and created a memory.

When he is not sleeping he is playing tennis on the varsity or dreaming strange weird fantastic dreams of strange worlds and strange doings. Many are the victories but Mac believes that gall makes the honey sweet. How can we deny the truth of this? Yet, sad to say, part of his dreams are not fulfilled. Tennis Squad (4, j, 2), N (j).

Perhaps you read the First Batt. Log. Well, he was the skipper and it speaks for itself. From the expe rience gained on the Log, Red stepped forward into important places with the Lucky Bag and Trident. And Red, like all true Navy men, has had his ups and downs with the " Ac " departments, but to date he has been able to stay up. If you ask him, however, he will give you the im- passion that he is in a state of sustentation, with little stability and negligible control.

After one year there, the great world beckoned to his adventurous soul, and he departed for the wild plains of Texas. Two years of cow-punching gave him such an ap- preciation of water that he determined upon a naval career. Plebe Summer found Frank quickly ac- quiring three stripes and becoming an effi- cient company commander. He played on his company lacrosse team, displaying a marked athletic prowess. The game which won the championship, gave him a black eye, a lame knee, and hindered this from further development. He forthwith gave up athletics, except for tennis. The years have found Frank striking a happy medium with the Academic Depart- ments, displaying a neatness of person and room which has been the delight of the Executive Department, and the despair of his less regulation roommate.

No one who has lived four years with him at the Academy will forget him, and for those who have not — his picture tells all. In the activities at the Academy he had been bitterly disappointed 1 — they had no place for him in either chess or ping-pong — but he shone in all others. Athletics, Mas- queraders, Extra Duty and even Regimental Bugler — he was in the midst of them all, or he led the cheering for them. He collected everything and immediately forgot about it. He was just too tender hearted to throw anything away. And eat? Continually. Food was served in the room at any hour. He is a specialist in all languages except English, and could star in the Bronx dialect.

Then the Fates decreed that we should have him; so, after a short period of prepping at San Diego Training Station, he joined us. While at the Academy, he has continued his practice of plunging head over heels into all things. Every fall and spring find him in football togs trying to improve his game. His success on the " B " Squad has always been a matter of great concern, and although never a star, he was a hustler. The Rifle Team, his Sunday School class, and his sailing parties were his other hobbies.

Both of these sports stood him in good stead in quelling some of the week-end riots that were staged for his benefit. When the Academic Departments laid traps for him, he laughed and fooled them But this carefree attitude wasn ' t shown when he undertook the gigantic task of caring for his roommates. Many a prema- ture grey hair that will crop out on his head, can be laid to the worries and cares he has endured to keep his room a " Home, Sweet, Home.

ROBERT ARCHER PIERCE Brownsville, Texas -Bob " " Jefe " BOB is one of these big, strong, but not silent men from the great open spaces. The Lone Star State must be one big foot- ball field, for Bob certainly was varsity stuff when it came to ripping open the line or smashing enemy plays, when the big blue team swung into action. Jefe made a cruise to Texas while the rest of us were heaving coal on that famous Youngster Cruise to the West Coast. His temporary acclimation must have produced marvelous results, for he returned with an amazing multitude of " Now when I was in Texas on sick leave. " Our Texan always has a good time and the hops are never complete without his husky shoulders crashing through the crowd. His selection of drags is varied but the Plebes have always rated them high and they really were up to par. Bob has had his troubles with ordnance and math, but when it came to Spanish, he could outdo the profs at their own game. Many a dago sufferer has been enlightened by Bob ' s expert knowledge of the verbs and nouns as explained in Luce Hall. At the end of football season, Jefe ' s accumulated periods have kept him busy on liberty after- noons, and now and then he made an oc- casional cruise on the Reina, but despite these little obstacles, he has always had a grin for everyone and a story that may have sounded doubtful but was mighty enter- taining.

Pompous and awe inspiring in his regal costume, he was fully aware of the fact that ten thousand people and one girl were looking at him; but our boy didn ' t show the slightest sign of nervousness and did his part admirably. In other activities, Jack is fully as dependable. After three years of efficient work on the Log staff, he was unanimously chosen as business manager and has handled the job in his characteristic manner. Jack doesn ' t believe in too much work but he does his share. The pants hangers gave him a hard tussle and our little heavy- weight spent many a weary afternoon over in the gym, wondering why midshipmen had to emulate kangaroos and jump at least 7 feet. With that old Navy fight he finally won out and now can tell his grandchildren all about " Now when I was a Mid- shipman . . . " Everyone loves a fat man and Jack is no exception to that adage. His rosy cheeks and black glossy hair have caused many a feminine heart to flutter and the cruises gave him many opportunities to charm the fair damsels on both the East and West coasts.

He entered with the class of 1917. Next we find him in our midst, having battled with the Math Department and lost. His one diag was removed and he be- came our classmate. Although not very athletic, Spud does not shun exercise. He is a member of the " Ground Deck Riveters, " and his saxa- phone can cast out the harmony that makes one homesick. As can be seen from the name, he is Irish. He lives up to the reputation of his race and occasionally can get warm under the collar. Nevertheless he will meet you half way and is a friend indeed.

KENNETH HERBERT WEIR Brooklyn, New York " Kenny " " Coolie " WITH two years as an enlisted man and a good record Cootie left the Navy and joined the ranks of incipient naval officers. While in the Navy Kenny learned to push a radio key and his First Class Juice certainly did suffer as he waded right through it all; which proves somewhat that " Forewarned is forearmed. " Plebe Year found Cootie standing at bay with the Academic Departments, but when June rolled around he was on the list of those eligible for the gold diag. Youngster Year Kenny was determined to bring the class within striking distance of the Harvard Shield; he went out for all sports, leaving the Radiator Club in the lurch. At the close of the year he proudly displayed his numerals as a result of his efforts.

Were one to analyze this product of the Maize Belt, he would very likely produce a dis- torted image of Bob. Everything about him can be criticized and everything about him can be admired. Whatever he attempts to do, he gives to it his best. Whether it be of trivial or stately importance, Doc offers heart and soul to its success. A plugger, ves-no, for Bob has been capably endowed with a keen mind. But when this fails to produce, he is truly a plugger. It is this fierce determination to make his plans work, regardless of how inharmonious they may be, that opens the road for Bob. But more than this self-discipline is a bigger thing; something not moulded by himself, but that just grew with him. A gentle nature that to some, not sensing that which lies beneath it, seems to be out of phase with an officer ' s makeup. But it ' s there and offsets all his petty faults. The lowliest creature is sure of generous con- sideration. With these traits and a keen, open mind, he starts down the rose colored path with our " God bless him.

RICHARD NATHANIEL BELDEN New London, Connecticut " Dick " " Yank " " Heebee Jeebec " DICK arrived at the Naval Academy from that state made famous by nut- megs and Mark Twain, on a bright, sun- shiny morning in July, 1913. During his first year, he appeared to be a shy, demure person; seldom seen and apparently afflicted with a bad case of lockjaw. Youngster September leave, or the cruise, however, caused a great change to come over him. Whether it was the cruise or the leave is yet to be decided. Instead of a shy, de- mure person, we found a happy-go-lucky, hail-fellow-well-met person in his shoes. Dick has always insisted on being very out- spoken and doing what he pleased, some- times at his own discomfort and expense. An extended cruise on that palatial yacht, the " Reina Mercedes, " failed to produce anv change whatsoever in this young man ' s attitude towards life. Unfortunately his attitude towards others also proved to be his undoing; for after a set to with aca- demics, Dick came back to us in September, 192.5, a more experienced youth. The grand old state noted for its three sterling qualities would have been proud to claim him as a son; for his tales of leaves, liberties, and such, have proved to be equal to the best that the famous Grimm Brothers ever produced.

There isn ' t a record made by the six leading musical companies which you can ' t find on his live foot pile.

ALBERT BRUCE CORBY Honeoye Falls, New York ' ' Alphabet ' ' IN the village of Honeoye Falls some twenty years ago, Albert Bruce first blinked upon this world. Ever since he has been very busy proving to it that he is in a class by himself. He graduated from the local high school and started out to conquer Cornell. Football claimed him the first year — though after some time in the hos- pital he was back in the class room again. It was at this time he decided to desert the path of the college man and become a naval officer. During Plebe Summer and Year he became famous for the originality of his remarks and for his adeptness at puz- zles of all sorts and descriptions. But what attracts our attention above all is his ability to remain unruffled in the face of severest argument possible to put forth.

The multitudinous terrors of plededom proved a boon to the virtuous Bypass. His daring displays of witticism and unending dissertations on the whichnesses of what completely foiled the scheming leaders of our destiny. This valuable education con- verted him in his later career to god-father and guiding hand to alleviate the troubles of plebes. That is, until Reina beckoned for a somewhat lengthy cruise. In other lines of endeavor Bypass showed the old Navy prowess and versatility. In fact, he has at one time come out for every kind of sport known to civilized man and has waded through the difficulties of each for a period of at least one day. He believes in being a man of broad knowledge, and has so far succeeded admirably, to the extent of mak- ing it a point of maintaining membership in either ship, sub, sick, or awkward squads. As a companion and fellow worker rhere is none who can fill the bill with such grin- ning persistency as can our Bypass.

In the pursuit of life, liberty, and happi- ness he decided that he was destined t o be a naval officer; and since the eventful day of his entrance he has proven that his choice was a fitting one ' — that he is a man fit for the service. When the call for sports was given Plebe Year, he responded to football, crew, and water polo, and has succeeded in getting his " N " in the latter. Dex has been an active member of the Log stalf since Plebe Year, when he made his debut in the literary world by editing a Sunday Evening Bumwad that brought fame to him over night. Little he realized at the time that the culmination of his success would be in the editorship of the Naval Academy ' s Wittiest Weekly. Another ac- complishment of note in his career was his shake down cruise on the Reina which gave him another award — the coveted N .

Spurning such petty sports as football, crew, and the like, " Six Days " went out for the Suicide Club, or the manly art of water polo. Since Plebe Year he has managed to stir up a trememdous lot of foam for his size, and as time goes on he is rapidly ap- proaching the coveted combination of fish and Strangler Leyvis. " You get used to it after a while, " Bill says. We have learned from widely divergent sources that his prowess extends to other fields as well- — but you really have to knoyv this midget to appreciate the glowing fund of knowledge in which he exuberates.

Baseball to our " Bill " is the center of the athletic universe. Besides playing, he fol- lows all rhe league teams, particularly that one which he predicts cannot possibly lose the world ' s championship.

Spring ' s soft blue skies found him swinging a lacrosse stick over his shoulder shouting information to those on the field. Long legs and quick coordination brought him to the front in his chosen sports. A well-rounded lad, Norm always found time to squire some fair damsel.

Here be- sides numerous court-martials and their sad results he collected the title of " Great Open Spaces. " But as King Solomn said to the reporter, " The half of it will never be told.

Judging from the numer- ous tales of the sea since his debut at the age of eleven he must have been born with a squilgee in one hand and a swab in the other. Plebe Year he started with a bang when first asked for a sea-going expression. Whereupon he assumed a pugilistic pose which would have frightened Bull Mon- tanato leaving the country. This made him famous in higher circles and he seemed to forget the seriousness of Academics, for his final triumph in passing a math exam car- ried him over to begin Youngster Year. Along toward the middle of that year he was appointed to make a cruise aboard the Reina, thus earning his varsity numerals in crime. " Barbara " is a man of varied talents whose interests are widespread. His eye is good, so he doggedly went to the rifle range about every day and he used this same eye in picking out a girl to whom he was ever- lastingly writing letters.

After some years of this, he came to pitch for Navy. Two roommates have gone to try the Great Outside, but " Ski " is not tempted. No better description of him could be given than this: his mind made up that the Navy is to be his career, no power on earth can change or hinder him. He is that way.

Plebe Year he assumed the title role in plebeian activities and his fame went far and wide; nevertheless he survived both these and the rocks and shoals of mathematics. At the same time he took a tremendous in- terest in new problems of the day, such as investigating infinity and side lights on psychology, and he even gained admission to our select clubs, the Sub and Weak, Awkward and Posture.

While at school in Washington he captained a cadet company with such excellence that his admiring sub- ordinates presented him with an army sabre. His aim was to enter West Point but not being able to secure an appointment he came to Annapolis. Youngster Year when he was fortunate enough to first visit the home of the Kaydets with the basketball team, he became convinced that he had chosen the right place. " Bill " is one of those quiet, unassuming fellows who takes the role of leader merely by natural choice. He always does things just as they ought to be done and the pap sheet that bears his name is a rare one in- deed. In the realm of athletics he is par excellence. Plebe Year he made the basket- ball and tennis teams and helped greatly in obtaining their fine success. The next year he repeated his performance on the varsity and since then he has done more than his share for Navy Athletics.

After a year there, however, he decided to try a naval career. In his years here, he has contributed more than his share for the class and the Aca- demy, as a member of the varsity basket- ball and class baseball squads, then also as chairman of the class ring committee. The Academic road has not been an easy one, but since his losing battle of Plebe Year, he has always been topside. John is a thorough gentlemen, quiet, up- right, unassuming, and a favorite with the fairer sex. We know and feel that his naval career will be a very successful and happy one.

I IKE most of us, Bill can give no definite j reason for choosing the Navy for a profession. He called it instinct yesterdav, but then he smiled; the next day he attri- buted it to something else, and this time he showed crossed lingers. I gave him up. With an eternal grin or smile, whichever you will, on his face, you might say " light- headed. " Well he is. Bill refuses to cloud up for anybody, including the sun. Aca- demics have caused him little or no worry. He reciprocates and oscillates from top to bottom at will. " I need a i. 5. " And he gets it with nothing to spare if he so chooses. He is a loadstone to anything involving discussion. Good humor radiating in his speech marks him as a worth-while friend and interesting companion. He never unin- tentionally made an enemy around here — that is excepting Plebe Year. This is saying a great deal. Friends find him very human; enemies can ' t find him at all. And we, we find him just right. " Small Sruff " EASLEY temporarily lost one of its staunchest sons when " Small Stuff " came to Crabtown. Although there isn ' t a great deal of him, this just goes to prove that good things come in small parcels. Plebe Year found him a quiet and de- bonair lad who eagerly returned the clamourous attentions of the other sex; that is, when he was not engaged in athletics or seeking the elusive 1.5. Admired by and ad- mirer of the weaker sex, he finds it some- what difficult to keep away for a whole week at a time. Persistency is one of " Small Stuff ' s " out- standing qualities, as the professors can easily testify; and he showed this again on the wrestling mat where his possibilities are sky high. Behind his cool and easy go- ing exterior we find a real pal with an even tempered disposition, a strong belief in chivalry, a talent for making friends, and a love of fair-play.

His habit of speaking and saying some- thing when spoken to is one of his most likeable qualities and this coupled with .1 rather philosophical tendency rarely fails to win a friend. Plebe Year he coxwained a champion freshman shell by continually fighting off " Old Joe Avoirdupois " and we had high hopes for him in the Olympics of 192.8. In the spring of Youngster Year, however, he couldn ' t get down to weight, although he all but cut off a left foot trving to do so. Plebe Year he brought back weird tales of several crew trips he made, and to this dav these serve as a comparison of good times for Kewpie. Kewpie will make as good a shipmate in the Fleet as he has a classmate and wife, which is predicting ample success for him. " Hey, mister, c ' tnere; where you going? Aw right, shove off.

He never boasts of his conquests or " affairs d ' amour, " thus causing us to wonder if he has had any of these. Those black eyes, black hair, and enviable physique, however, almost immediately banish any doubts.

It would be impossible to cata- logue all the traits which contribute to his amiable personality; therefore we must be content with citing those that are foremost. His first claim to fame was during Plebe Year when he fought a losing battle in the " court martial " which convened as a re- sult of the dispute over his middle name. Graced with a keen sense of humor and a nimble tongue which always had a clever comeback forthcoming, this " rising poli- tician " has delighted us as a witty conver- sationalist and by his speeches on the lighter subjects.

At various times the issue was in doubt until the last minute, but he always won. He is not at all unlucky in some respects. Being comely and a lad of plodding mien he leaves the athletic field to the more argumentative, but derives much thrill from the near society of the gen tie ones; and in addition to academic knowledge he learned about ' em from ' er. So he has ac- quired an all around education. And peculiarities — the complex era was designed for him. We cannot leave unsung the joy of the mirror performances; lovely- muscles derived from " stoopfalls " ; classic music at all hours and the voice which stirs such vituperation from the household.

T w miiiiiii.iiiw rv •- -.-— v- GRAVY is just human; but what an asset that is. People who spend years together see through the superficiality of one another and know the true man. His naturalness and sincerity are what make him amiable and easy to understand. He has his faults and is not in the least ex- ceptional. That must be the reason he makes a true friend, associate, and pal ; for he can understand shortcomings and so make the hard spots easier for the other fellow. When Gravy chose the Naval Academy to fit him for a career which he had honored and admired since early boyhood, he made his ambition a serious and sincere one. His aim was not the Academy, with its glamour and pleasures as well as its hardships, but the Navy at large; and his knowledge of the Navy as it actually serves the country has come from his special interest in his outside reading and observation. Track and reading have mainly filled Gravy ' s moments of diversion; and if his knowledge derived from both is a criterion, he has reaped worthy benefits. It has been Gravy ' s attempt to mold him- self for his profession; and in the making, he has developed a personality and char- acter in his schooling which portray a spirit all its own. He is altruistic, and magnani- mous, respectful of others, reticent at re- ceiving undue favors, cheerful upon all oc- casions, and in all, one with whom it is a pleasure to associate.

Why he left the desert to make his home on the water none of us have ever been able to find out. He came to the Academy fresh from high school with the idea of conquering the world. His struggle with the Academic Department has been a fast and furious one but by burning the mid- night oil and using the alarm clock he has won. While at the Academy Red has not won his spurs in athletics because he has either been on the sub-squad or unsat. We feel sure he could well have defended Navy on the courts had it not been for these hindrances. Necessity has made him an expert swimmer, though. He has the good old Navy spirit we like so well and he can win in any fray if he makes up his mind to do it. Red has a per- sonality that makes every one who meets him his friends and is equally at home at a stag party or at a tea dance and we have even heard it rumored that mothers keep their daughters at home when he is in town.

Anyway there was weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth when Steve forsook St. Louis but the whole town turned out to wish him " bon voyage " as he set out to make his mark in life. Academics never did bother Steve but the girls were a constant thorn in his side. Between the one at home, the one in Chicago, the one in Seattle, and the one in Crabtown he was kept in pretty much of a turmoil. Incidentally it was one of the feminine gender that assisted in his fall from grace in the eyes of the Executive Department. It was near the end of Second Class year (a most inopportune time) when he disguised himself and went riding- — just once too often. As one of the girls said, " It sure shoots my June Week. " But in spite of all his trials and tribula- tions Steve has kept in mind his one great goal ' — to make St. Louis proud of him. He expects to return some day and be accorded a welcome at least equal to that given the victorious Cardinals when they returned from New York in 1316.

THIS young man came to our noble halls of learning with the audacious state- ment that his name was pronounced " Shay. " His instructions have necessarily been repeated to the prof of every new class. He got off to the right start at the begin- ing of his first Academic Year and al- though he was always bilging he failed to hang on a single tree. He has made most all the squads but not the letter kind unless one considers the awards accruing from enforced sea duty second class year. He is an eloquent elocutionist, especially when on the subject of " corn " or " Ioway. " " Oh-h-h what I mean, let me tell you some- thing, Ioway has more ' — , " and he ' s off. He is not a bad hearted fellow on the whole, in fact there is no chance for argument when he gets his laugh going. He always has the latest baseball and bridge dope, being a participant as well as a fan in both. As he says, " The only reason I cannot join the cosmo club is that I don ' t like continued stories. " He has had his big thrill in life and is now content to follow the course of human events. He is an ideal roommate — designates everything as " ours " if they don ' t belong to him. Most of his leave hopes were cen- tered in Baltimore, which, however, did not prevent him from keeping in touch with other points of interest.

BORN and raised in the saltiest port the world this young " Swede " struggled through the early years of his life with the strong determination of having a little more sodium chloride effect than the lake at home. Once during his experimental stage of life he was diverted from his first love and tried military life in form of R.O.T.C, but this did not appeal to his wild and roving spirit. His life ' s dream came true in June, 1914 when the great transformation took place. From well tailored civilian clothes to over- size white works, from an intelligent look to a gawky stare; and from being free and white to just being white. At first this change did not appeal to him, but as the newness of this strange life wore off he re- signed himself to his fate of being a gentle- man sailor. Youngster and first half of second class year passed without any startling episodes except his ability to drag star femmes. Broke into prominence by taking a pre- mature month ' s cruise due to a hasty de- parture to catch a train. A week in Philadel- phia gave him a cynical view of women, but that wore off in time, leaving his true character, that of a gentleman in the true sense of the word and a type of fellow any man would be glad to call his friend.

" SINCE the very beginning of his career as a Midshipman " Al " has demonstrated that his major non-academic interest lies in the field of athletics. Hardly a season has passed in which he has not energetically participated in a sport. Whether it be soccer, boxing or lacrosse, his awards prove his prowess. Regardless of the fact that his main occu- pations have been athletic pursuits and activities, " Al " has always entered into the spirit of the game with but a single ex- ception — and that inevitably leads to the other sex. The peculiar catch is the absence of the liking, for which he has had little time and less inclination. Not entirely dis- regarded, however, the sex seems to have occupied a small place in " Al ' s " busy life. The only times when we have seen " Al " with any extra degree of rapidity was when he was caught in the shower only two minutes before formation, or perhaps dur- ing a soccer or lacrosse game at the end of a pretty pass. His easy-going, cheerful, and industrious nature have earned for him a host of friends and even better, no enemies.

Let the rest of the fellows grumble, but he will only say that things will turn our right in the end. Tom still has his troubles, pleasant trou- bles though. They consist entirely of the fair sex. The reason for his popularity he will not disclose, and he even pleads inno- cent as to the knowledge of it; but just ob- serve more closely those curly locks and that pleasant smile and you will discover the visible parr of it yourself. Did you ask about his athletics? Well during Plebe Year he was one of the busiest little athletes around, first making the soccer team and then the wrestling and rifle squads. After his Plebe Year he picked soccer and since then has excelled in that sport. If either you delight in argument or would like to hear something of California, just speak scornfully of that state. You will then depart a wiser man and realize that he is a true Native Son. Tom has made friends, scores of them, everywhere he has gone both in and out of the Academy.

' V CHARLES ROBERT WATTS Zanesville, Ohio " Bob " " Chauncey " A HOT June day of the summer of ' 2.4 brought just another candidate among the rest to the Academy. But there was something under that straw hat be- sides a good-looking face — brains. Bob demonstrated very early Plebe Year that he was blessed with a perfect set and when Youngster Year came, Bob was the first section leader and has been ever since. Bob, with his energy and natural ability, should have been a lawyer, for he always secures his desired end at anytime and any- where. Nothing could demonstrate this bet- ter than the Current Events test Youngster Year when Bob led the field, bringing fame and fortune to himself and glory to his class. To top the year off Bob annexed an- other prize by a combination of interest in his profession and the application of his own talent- — the only other prize offered to his class that year. Leadership was thrust upon Bob at the Academy, for there was always a place in everything literary, athletic, or military that needed a conscientious worker, a " good fellow, " an amiable one above all, with a smile and loads of ideas to make the purpose better.

His home is in Washington, where he received his earlier education at Western high and Shadman ' s. Shea has a strong character into which has been molded ideals of the highest order, and his personality is most magnetic. He is somewhat inclined toward the serious, but blended with it is an excellent sense of humor. His life at the Naval Academy has seemed quite normal to the casual observer, but those who really know him are cog- nizant of unusual escapades that have gone to brighten his cosmos. He is such a fine chap that we would most cettainly like to have him associated with us always; but as the Service calls to the ends of the earth, we can only look forward to a likely meeting. WILLIAM Allen Taylor received his secondary education at Hyde Park High School of Chicago and Linsly Institute of Wheeling, West Virginia. He represented both of these schools in foot- ball and has continued this sport with suc- cess in the Academy, playing in the Army- Navy game Youngster Year. Boxing, bas- ketball, and lacrosse are among his other activities. Academically, he graduated high in his class at Linsly and has passed with credit at the Academy. One ' s first impression of Al, as he is known to classmates and friends, is that he is big, reserved, and well mannered. He is not so easy to know at first but more likable the longer one knows him. He possesses an enjoyable sense of humor, is inclined to be carefree, and will take a chance on anything within reason and sometimes on that which is not within rea- son. He has poise and the proper of dignity which marks him as one with an attractive personality and an admirable character. Of all his fine qualities, and there are many, loyalty to his friends is the most out- standing one. What could be more desirable and admirable in a naval officer than loyalty; loyalty to country, service, and friends.

IZI HE arrived in wonderment but de- termined — upon what he had not decided, having found himself a Plebe quite by accident. Therefore, he set out to dis- cover a cause for these determinations, and toward this end arose daily an hour before reveille. After a few weeks, however, he reached the conclusion that he had lots of time in which to see the world, and ex- tended his period of rest to the prescribed time or thereafter. During Plebe year, " Aileen ' s endeavors took the form of meek resignation, but after a good Sunday dinner he decided to make the best of a bad life. For the information of the curious, let it be stated: Never argue with " A.B. " unless you prefer to outbellow his obstinate scepticism. Raise your voice above his, if possible, and full speed ahead; otherwise you are lost in argumentation. His wrestling ability is worthy of note, for " Aileen " has pursued that ancient art with untiring vigor. He also indulges in track at times. Four years of mental labor have passed, each filled with a remarkable number of extra duty periods, and now we reach the parting of the ways — at least for a short period until this great sea-faring fraternity chances another encounter. " Savvy Joe " " Booers " " Jack " NOW just to stand off and appraise this quiet, easy going lad you would never guess that he is the scion of the House of Savvy Joe, but regardless of appearances he is that! Booers is one who minds, above all else, the business that is his own- — caring little for what the Romans do and rather less for how they do it. His make-up is one which renders him more than usually com- petent in any endeavor which requires de- tail — for he is painstaking, meticulously so — and is never found wanting when there is work of this character to be done. Savvy Joe ' s Academic record is one of which any member of the class might be justly proud- — and in addition, Jack has found considerable time to participate in extra-curricular activities. Both in the class room and out of it you will find the same genial petson who believes in doing the work at hand, letting tomorrow bring its own problems, problems which we are sure will be solved by this ever capable lad. We need not conjecture in regard to the future of Booers, for to succeed admirably he need only be the same good friend, the same happy classmate that he has always been during the four years we have lived, studied and worked with him.

JOHN MOORE BOYD Scottsboro, Alabama " Jimmy " JIMMY entered the Academy with the class of ' 2.5. Illness caused him to resign and he returned to his native Alabama. Entering upon the career of a college boy, he found the Navy lure remained; so he re- turned to the Academy. Jimmy told us that working a cotton gin produced muscular ergs. To prove his statement he let " Spike " look him over. As a student he oscillates between letters and magazines. Nevertheless, he squeezes in enough work to stand well up in his class. As a wife he is only to be censored for his melancholy moments when letters fail to arrive, but the ball scores displace them. Jimmy, with his Southern ways, gives the fairer sex many a pleasant evening. His mail, from every port we touch, proves he has a way with the women. However, he always manages to keep one jump ahead of them all, by not professing his love for any certain one. As Jimmy says " I love them all. " When it comes to chasing away the gloom there are none better; and because he can work and smile at the same time, he is bound to succeed in the fleet. Good luck, Jimmy, old boy.

THEORUM: If one suffers not his mind to dwell over much on useless things mundane; if one takes life as it is — and makes a joy out of it; if one has the qualities of ability and perseverance mixed, in nice proportions, he is sure to make a go of it in any man ' s navy! CONSTRUCTION; Under a pair of fairly broad shoulders, place a heart as big as a loaded coal barge. Over these shoulders, set a still broader, analytical mind. Give him a pair of brown eyes with the glint of the mischievous therein. If this has been properly done, the result is five feet eight inches of very capable, lovable lad. PROOF; Smitten by Erie ' s winds on Cleveland ' s lake front, there burned in the mind of this lad a desire to ascertain whether or not there was anything to the then current rumor that the United States possessed a navy. The examinations were passed in less — much less — time than it took the examiners to read his hand- writing ' — and " C. J. " signed his name on the big ledger. To the Academics he is in- vulnerable — but it is true that he cringes at the vaporous hissing of Steam. He would rather be at sea than at home; his preference in regard to blondes and brunettes he re- fuses to divulge — reason, incrimination. Yes, he will make a go of it in any man ' s navylQ. E. D.

Witticisms and superlative adjectives flow as freely from his exquisitely chiseled mouth as does the oil from a gusher of his native state. We shall long remember his funeral peroration at the Burial of Math; his eloquent flow and gift of mimicry have lessened the tedium of many a field day at sea. Slow to get started " Acey " is irresistible underway and behind a lot of surface non- sense hides a clear, cool mind and a capacity for quick, sound judgment. That, and a personality which has made him a host of friends, will carry him far. Outside of Math his Academic worries have been nil. However, due to- — tempera- ment, we ' ll say, his class standing is about five times lower than it should be.

His famous story dwells on the climatic changes in North Dakota.

" " Soc " is an experienced judge of females, and quite a connoisseur on the subject, but I do believe he would be hurt if he ever made a favorable remark when judging the other ' s girl. Like most of us he has met many ob- stacles in his Academic path but " that old time fight " has pulled him through so far in Life and will probably continue to do so.

Having the original " Body Beautiful " and a not too brutal face, " Thermite " has caused many a young heart to flicker and flare up. Although possessing an eye for true feminine beauty he is more or less of a red mike, dragging only occasionally. Acquiring a new hobby every other day he has drifted from pipes to fruit diets, on to scalp massages, and so on endlessly. It is not lack of ability to stay with a thing, but a desire to investigate new fields, that makes " T. A. " an authority on so many subjects. Wrestling and soccer have kept him busy in athletics, but any startling success that might have been his was nipped in the bud by a strong desire to stay sat. The Academics have not been a source of worry to Smitty, but he has been conscious of their presence at times and has conducted himself accordingly. All in all " T. A.

He went out for all of the athletic teams in the school, and what is more, he made them. This does not mean that he is a wonderful athlete. But it does show that he has the ability to stick to everything he attempts, no matter whether or not he likes it. Since entering the Academy, that same trait has predominated. Not only is this true in athletics, but in his studies as well. Every season finds him with some athletic uniform in his possession. Since the adop- tion of the 150-pound crew, George has been one of its chief supporters. However, he does not spend all his time with ath- letics. When the hop week-ends roll around George is quire evident at the hops, and it is very seldom that he is there alone. George has always had an ambition to be a leader and a helper. Those of us who know him can truly understand how far he has gone toward that ambition. Football B-Squad (1), Class (4), N A (■ ); iso-Lb.

This tall, dark comple.xioned gentleman dashes joyfully home every leave period, but it ' s doubtful whether he likes the country more than he does a cer- tain girl who writes to him three times every week. In the fall Robert indulges in football and has been going out faithfully for that sport for four years. In the winter he can be seen on the seaward terrace, the mainstay on the fighting sixth basketball team. In the spring his aversion toward work usually gets the better of him. Three times each week he is inspired by a letter from Kentucky and manages to exist in between. Bob has the instinct of his particular dis- trict and loves beautiful women, good whiskey and fast horses. He is congenial and sociable, and makes friends easily. His one pet theme is his aversion towards work, on which he will argue with anyone. He has his share of the good times and pretty girls in each port. Occasionally he drags but as a general rule dislikes dancing. His para- mount thought is that of tying up with the Navy, and we all hope that when this dream comes true he will spend the rest of his days in elysium, though we doubt it.

Entrance examinations, and in fact any examinations, are to this man but a mere detail and a means to an end. He has, with one exception had little trouble academi- cally or otherwise to worry him. Maybe, but probably not, this is the reason why we always see him smiling and just aching to tell the newest story he has heard. He loves nothing so well as to sit down with a good book and live in a different world for a while, but he ' s always ready to put it up and join in if there ' s anvthing going on. His encounters with the fair sex have in- variably been victorious contests for him- self, but we who know him best are pre- dicting a reverse in the near future.

He came to Washington to im- bibe at the fount of knowledge sponsored by Mr. Swavely, who pronounced him a hope- less scholar. When the time came, however, he surprised all hands, including himself, by passing the entrance exams that so grimlv confronted those ambitious lads. That was the hrst rung of the ladder that he climbed; of course he has slipped now and then, but that is merely human nature. Rodney will never have any success play- ing the part of the big, strong, silent hero; but size doesn ' t hinder him from being one of our leading exponents of the light fan- tastic and an untiring bridge player.

" But such a statement, though made frequently by Swede, is no criterion of his attitude; for his many friends know this as Swede ' s rather easv manner of taking bad news and that he will only study more than ever. Swede ' s tendencies are toward athletics and even after an hour of extra-instruction, his day is wasted if he misses his workout. When he is not under an Academic ban he is always out for some sport; but in any event he will be found to be the most loyal sup- porter of every team.

He further dis- tinguished himself Youngster Year by his active association with the Vigilance Com- mittee for erring Plebes. His very commend- able work with the " LOG " reflects " Birdie ' s " more sober moments. This elongated totem-pole is a special correspondent of Earl Liederman and is also the arch enemy of women, having only thirty representations of feminine pul- chritude forming a fastoon upon his locker door.

Marmaditke " His Grace of Sbaughnessy and Montmorency " THE " Duke " believes in safety in num- bers. He ' s the final product of a fine old Virginia family tree, and like all true Vir- ginians, he honored his native state with his continued presence up to the age of adolescence. After graduating from Army- Navy Prep in Portsmouth, he followed the logical but un-conventional course and sud- denly awoke to the realization that he was a Midshipman. Plehe Year received him in obscurity and graduated him in universal popularity. He was true to his class as an all around class athlete. This during Youngster Year gave way to a place on the varsity boxing squad. " Marmaduke " is a real example of the inner fight that makes a man. He has faced handicaps and stone-walls since the day of his entrance into the Navy; but his record is one of clear water and he has proven him- self of the stuff which constitutes a gentle- man and an officer.

" " Pcabotfy " FROM a Naval Training Station out in the Golden West, this self-made man started his Naval career as an apprentice seaman and rose to the high rank of a Mid- shipman, Fourth Class. He entered the Academy with the advanced report that he was going to shake dice with his brother as to who would stand one in his class; but Chile ended his Plebe Year by shaking dice for a place on the receiving end of a broom. A seagoing roll that is distinctive, a happy smile, a debonair and carefree at- titude—that ' s Chile. He never worries about anything, including mail, weather, academics, or women. Plebe Summer found him winning his weight in boxing, but later we learned he could play tennis and dive equally well, in fact he was on varsity squads his entire career. He specialized in diving, his graceful swans and jack knives winning many a point for the Navy team, as well as the hearts of the fair ones. Academically, I am forced to bury him not praise him. He held down the anchor in dago and got through by sheer luck. In other sub|ects, he managed to rise up among the Intellegentsia but very seldom. He loves the old " Navee " and we know when he gets the old half inch stripe, we ' ll have the finest type of officer. Tenuis (}, 2), ' zS (4); Swimming Squad (2), ' 2.1 (4, f); Boxing ' 28 (4). Mimmmim g " GEORGE KLEINEBERG HUFF San Francisco, California " Duke " " Klein " HIS ambition to be a sailor has been the one governing principle since he was old enough to toddle. It led him to service in the merchant marine from which now and then we hear of his hair-raising es- capades from the " wobblies " and his deep amours with the maids of Hawaii. It fin- ally led him to join the navy where he might continue the career destined for him. As California claimed him, he was pro- ficient in the sports attributed to that state. The spring finds him wielding a mean raquet, the winter sees him splashing away in the " swimming hole. " The fair sex have an unfailing attraction for him and to date we have yet to find him missing a hop. Academics have always been close behind him, but his battle cry of " Gangway, boys, I ' m unsat and got to be going " carried him safely through.

Although he attended the University of Arizona as a freshman, he professed having left those realms and their hidden wealth in favor of the more alluring Neptunic branch of the Profession of Arms. John had little in the way of outward prowess with which to bid for success, yet behind his whimsical smile and dancing eves were the requisites of a seagoing salt and round good humor that go far in mak- ing him delightful company in any society. In spite of the vague stories that won him the sobriquet " Shotgun, " he demonstrated his ability on the Rifle Squad in a convinc- ing way. In keeping with the heritage of the great open spaces, there is nothing cramped about his style — the ready fun and happy smile win all hands to the side of this placid Westerner. Together with a proficiency with books, he possesses a practical mind, a sound attitude, and general proof of having chosen the right profession. We are proud to have such a classmate and friend. Of course we ' re sorry that his mother had to part with him— but the Navy needs John for one of the strong links in its chain. " Viva la Escopeta.

For him Plebe Year had its strifes and tribulations, and " olivewoil and winegar.

The melancholy memory of some sweet damsel far away has seared the soul of all of Bancroft ' s sons — but not the " Flying Dutchman. " He loves and laughs, and laughs again — he loves them all, you see. The Hops have been his joy in life, and D.O. ' s his affliction. As a knight of the diamond Max has ex- pressed his athletic desires on class teams. As wrestling manager he has shown his ability as a coach and a leader. But now the years of " one stripe " and " two diags, " and last, his first class year have pased by, for Midshipmen days have come and gone. His winning personality will cheer the memory in years to come of many a service man in a distant station on recalling old acquaintance with " Auld Lang Syne " - — a true friend, classmate, and shipmate.

Heebie is neither an athlete nor a mem- ber of the radiator club, for while he tries a hand of bridge now and then, he also tries the sports at least once. An inveterate at- tender of the hops; and while he drags fre- quently his average is well above the danger mark.

As a Navy Junior he wandered from place to place, and in these wanderings he even- tually absorbed enough education to join the ranks of the spoiled and pampered pets. His last place of residence being Coronado, California, he made a long and weary journey across the continent to enter the Academy. As a Plebe, Ched was perfect in our esti- mation and succeeded in getting through the year with only minor injuries. He is not an All-American but he is a good Lacrosse man. But owing to the Academic Depart- ments, much of his time is spent in reading. In bridge he is one of the skilled members of our class and has few superiors. But " Ched " is what we all know as a good friend. He gripes some but usually finishes up with a smile and decides the Navy is pretty fair after all. Class Swimming Q2); Class Water Polo (.2).

Since coming to the Naval Academy he has been able to keep ahead of the Academics with- out much trouble although we remember Freddie burning considerable " Midnight oil " near the end of Youngster Year. Just an unbeatable good fellow, that ' s Freddie, with an inherent humor that is a real gloom chaser. If there is anything Freddie likes better than a good joke on himself it is one on the other fellow. It is little wonder that Freddie is often connected with some prank, joke, or rough house. He has been known to do everything from putting cracker crumbs in a class- mate ' s bed to throwing snow at the Duty Officer. Freddie is not over frivolous but has just the right proportions of every quality to make him very popular with all his as- sociates, and that will make him a credit to the Navy as one of its officers in the future.

Jhimnnmnnuh IC, the call of the sea must have been strong to enable you to leave the land of cotton and oil fields. All of us can admit that your choice is one worth while. At times he has found his Academics easy sailing and enjoyed the thought to a great extent. But there have been other times which required Nic to bone until the last exam. His possession of the abilitv to get the 1.5 has proved itself several times. Aside from the Academics, the sub-squad has claimed him every year as one of its victims. His favorite pastime is telling weird tales that have occurred out on the western plains. If it isn ' t that, he is then giving you a line about his bois d ' arc. Nic is just a big hearted pal who would do anything for you when in need, and he is a real sport. But one habit has almost caused his downfall, as he allowed his big heartedness to get the better of him and and tried to heat up the band stand from his own room.

He is from Missouri, and outside of the fact that he ' d just as soon do some of the show- ing, he ' s a true son. " Jimmy " came to the Academy for two very different reasons. Along with the thought that the Academy would be an excellent place to pursue an education, came the suggestion that here was the place and the opportunity, to en- joy obtaining an education. He was one of that great group of us to whom the vir- tues and possibilities of a life in the Service were a gradual development; he discovered that they are very real and desirable, in- stead of merely acceptable and vague. " Jimmy " is one of those to whom good times and pleasures are as essential as air. His hearty manner and pleasant disposition assure him endless friends, fellows and girls. The latter should never be neglected in a summary of his thoughts and interests. That he attends most of the hops is to be expected; possibly he is more at home there than elsewhere. Nevertheless he always fits into the surroundings. It is not hard to see why " Jimmy " should succeed whether it be in charge of a ship, station, business or to any other end he may bend his efforts to. His keen desire to use to advantage his capabilities is the answer to why he will succeed. Class Football (4, f); Class Baseball (5); Class Boxing (.4); Class Gym (.2); Class Basketball (J). JOHN FELIX MULLEN, Jr. Montgomery, Alabama ' Moo, " Join " AFTER experienceing a taste of military y Y_ life and the nectar of authority as five striper of his local R.O.T.C. unit, Felix could not resist the desire to multiply his high school honors and repeat his per- formance at the Naval Academy. He came purely because of his love of things military and because he wished to become a part of the grearest of all professions. Handicapped by an early injury, Felix was prevented from taking part as he de- sired in athletics; but his devoted interest caused him to stick with the squad in the role of manager. Felix has loafed along in the field of Academics, always hanging around the bot- tom of the first section. We have often been led to wonder just where he would have stood if he had worked hard. " Well, here is another that ' Moon ' told me! " They never failed ro thrill and they never failed to bring a laugh. His stories told themselves into our hearts and the brilliant sunshine of the Southland was re- flected in all that he said and did. He came with the avowed purpose of becoming five striper, but that purpose was soon lost in a thousand others, not the least of which was to enjoy life and to amuse everyone. There was never a dull moment when " Moon " was within striking distance. Manager Track Q4), Navy Numerals (4); Log Staff (2, i); Tuv Stripes.

He became a candidate for Uncle Sam ' s melting and moulding pot to satisfy his thirst for travel and adventure, but time erases many of our ambitions with the result that a longing for the profession of a lawyer is gradually growing — and this desire to follow in the footsteps of his brother may some day overwhelm his dreams of adventure and take a capable leader from the Service. On the athletic field Tom is no stranger, for he is always out to do his part; and when there are better ones to make the team, he stays to cheer them on to do their best. When spring makes a first appearance, however, he is out with the first ones warm- ing up for the first baseball game of the season. " Are we downhearted? Hell no! " He seldom is and even then no one would ever know it because Tom is always ready to cheer the other person and offer him a friendship — priceless to those who know him for what he is and what he does.

In the Navy we speak of a man as either a good or a bad shipmate. Having made a cruise with this young man I can readilv call him one of the good shipmates. Along with the time given to making friends and making these same better friends, he has found time for a host of other activities. Upon graduation the Academy will lose a most valued member, but the fleet will be recompensed by the presence of a beloved shipmate.

At any time of the day he can be seen or heard turning " hand springs " down the corridor. Where there is music he can always be found. Be- ing an advocate of the Charleston, at the first sound of music his feet commence to cut capers. In athletics much has been accomplished by this abbreviated Samson.

Asa result of the latter, our hero thought himself quite a soldier, but soon found out what a dub he was concerning things military. A member of the King ' s own, he quickly found the proper seagoing way to sling a popgun. (Or maybe it was extra duty that did it). His " forte " is the way he goes out for any and all athletics; swimming, wrestling, rifle, and crew being included in his spor- tive curriculum. No block N ' s are his, but numerous and sundry numerals adorn his manly chest. Academically, Bill suffers from intense and spasmodic desires to star. But in be- tween times, the lapses cteate terrible havoc in his marks, and another good man is pasted on the tree. On the other hand, he surely produces the goods during the short space of time he wants to bring down the elusive 3.4. Rather a careful individual, he is a pal you ' ll like to have around.

Sometimes he had men of 35 as his junior operators! You should hear his tales of the " local color " of Jamaica and Kingston. As his father is a professor in the Dep ' t of Modern Languages, Porky has always been savvy in Dago, and his knowledge of Radio has helped him (and his roommate) in Juice. On the Utah Youngster Cruise it was his little 40 meter set that brought home the bacon when the main radio went out of commission. He is a pretty good shot too, and although not from the wild west hits the bulls eye quite regularly. As for the man himself, he is quiet, and seems to have an eternal case of spring fever, but he can put out the ergs, watts, joules, and amperes when he wants to, as witness the time when he needed a 3.2. and got a 3.6 in Math the last month.

When he held a " forty-five, " the bull surely did suffer. During Plebe Year he acquired the name of " Bo-PEEP " from his rosy red cheeks. When it came to Acedemics, " Bo " was right there. He stood well up in his class, and had a certain knowledge of how to find the solution of things, especially Math problems. Although not a giant in body, he could run a little and showed up quite well in gymnasium and track activi- ties. In spite of the fact that along toward the end of Youngster Year he came very near falling into the net of a certain young lady, he remained a red mike, dragging only when the spirit so moved him.

Now that graduation draws near, he is confronted with the inevitable decision. To quote him, " If I go to the West Coast I will bring joy and sunshine into the hearts of California ' s sunkist maidens, while if I stay on the East Coast it will spread in- surmountable joy from Bangor, Maine to Guantanamo Bay " and so on far into the night.

Although he has been far-famed for his exploits of Youngster Year, by which he completely demoralized one of the most frequent visitors to the rock floor of Dahlgren Hall, he has never been known as a woman killer.

He has not as yet obtained prominence in any line of athletics, but he is always trying his hardest, whether it be a case of class soccer or lacrosse, or a good bull fest.

His highest attainments have been win- ning the hearts of certain members of the fair sex, masquerading, and organizing small jazz orchestras. In addition, he is quite an accomplished musician, being able to play almost any kind of a stringed in- strument. Several misinterpretations of the Little Blue Bible have awarded Bill the privilege of wearing a Black N with a small con- stellation of seven stars above it, but that only remains in his memory as days of pleasant rest and oblivion.

In fact as a political enemy he makes a good Iriend. Bow came to us late in Plebe Summer and it took him a year and a half and a re-exam to catch up with the Math Department. He learned, however, and found out the less wor- ried you look in class the bigger dailies put out. While positively one of the most active men at the Naval Academy his activities belie it. The Executive Department and Henry Ortland ' s well known squad kept Clarence plugging away. Clarence in love is as steady as we ' ve yet found in the Navy. For four years Clarence has held faithfully to the same ideals — and incidentally to the same young lady. As a roommate Clarence has all the vir- tues possible — the same brand of cigarettes — same size collar, etc., etc. Nuff said. He ' s the kind of a man a fellow stays a friend of and we all want him with us on board ship. " How was Mrs. Feetlebaum — H ' m — so dun ' t esk.

Finding the " Hub " too small, he climbed out on one of the spokes and in time found himself in our midst. Hailing from the " Savoir State, " he had had no trouble with the Academic Depart- ment. Every study hour he may be heard to say: " Have you anything to read? " " Oh, I ' ve read all those. " Finding time hanging heavily on his hands, he used his literary ability to ad- vantage in Log work. Jo-Jo likes nothing better than to be man- aging something, even in the mess hall. He manages to keep the Filipinos busy filling the dishes. Whenever a political discussion is in pro- gress, Jo will be found somewhere near. He should have been a lawyer. Since he didn ' t choose that profession, the Navy is the winner, because we all want him with us in the fleet. " Say! what time is it? " as the bell rung, " What ' s the lesson?

Each spring he was chosen captain of these chosen few and re- newed his struggle for September Leave. However, at the hops he held his own and always had a fair and popular drag of the 4.0 variety. There he was in his element and much favored bv the fair sex. On each cruise M. Lee was lucky and drew the most peppy and most comfortable ship. Exertion was the least of his worries and at " turn to " he was never found at the business end of a squilger but peacefully dreaming of some far distant port o pleasure.

" About the only people Harp was not able to make friends with was the Math Depart- ment, but after four months of hard work, for five different terms, he was always sit- ting on top of his 1.5.

At any of the little bull sessions he gets in his little story about things up in Hartford.

But we just couldn ' t get along with- out him, even though we never could con- vince him of how he puts the tooth paste spots on the floor. When the gym team does its stuff, he comes in handy, and what would the old ' iS baseball team be without Red behind the bat? Wush-a-wush is among those present at the hops, and drags blind for the asking, just the asking. And he writes a letter a day even though he does get only one a week.

" After listening to Droop during exam week we never expected to see him with two diag ' sbut in spite of those 1.0 ' sand less, his average always remained close to starring. An infectious sense of humor crowded into a small compact frame, easily recog- nizable by its low center of gravity makes " Droop " a welcome addition to any group of fun lovers. A charter member of the radiator club, " Droop " confined most of his activities to twanging a banjo, clapping the bones, and borrowing records for the Vic. In between he found time to play class soccer, basket- ball and track, making the varsity soccer team at the end of Youngster Year. Just to prove his versatility " Droop " strolled down to the alleys and knocked down enough pins to clinch a place on the Navy bowling team. Anytime we ' re blue we ' ll ask for nothing better than to have " Droop " amble in, hum a skag, and help us gripe, because when he gripes ordinary expressions of disatisfac- tion taste flat, and soon we forget our own injuries trying to cheer him up.

He started out by falling asleep in Chapel the first Sunday Plebe Year and lost interest in the Navy when he wasn ' t allowed to continue in conference with Morpheus. He made out so many re- signations Plebe Year that he had a minus amount available from buying paper, the whole year. They all turned out to be threats and not promises though. His sense of humor approaches infinity; not being able to laugh enough during the day, he does so at night when he ' s asleep.

P CHARLES HANSFORD KENDALL Baltimore, Maryland " Char lie ' CHARLIE comes from Baltimore hut that is not enough said; he has all that Baltimore always claims for her sons and quite a lot besides. Of all our Academic enemies Math was his only contender aud that was truly a battle royal. The score at times assumed proportions that would have caused a lesser man to cast his lot elsewhere, but adversity only brought out more of Charlie ' s old fight. That same old fight comes out in his choice of athletics, for he is one of those navy ham-and-eggers that know how to use a lacrosse stick only as they do. His seagoing experience has been wide and varied; you might ask him how he started one cruise as a Younster and finished it as a Junior Officer; also about the mid- winter cruise he made on the waters of the mighty Severn. Charlie ' s many friends know they will always find him cheerful and willing to work hard or to play hard or to fulfill any office that a real friend can.

He has always come close to starring in Academics. He is a firm believer in Teddy Roosevelt and has adopted many of his principles. George is a hard, tireless worker, and will do anything for any of his many friends. He is rather quiet, when not in his playful moods, but if you want to start fireworks just mention the fact that the Navy is not so good after all.

HERE is a happy go lucky lad with a school girl complexion and an ever ready smile. " Smitty " began his military career by spending a summer in a Citizens ' Military Training Camp. He finished his preparation for " our Navy " in the " ole home town " high school. As an athlete, he decided that he was a good manager; so every afternoon during the fall you could find him on the football field with a list of prospective N men. His afternoons for the remainder of the year were spent in the " gym " because he was a great exponent of the " work-out " theory. " Don " always managed to decorate several trees but emerged successfully. He has a weakness for the fair sex but seldom allows them to get the upper hand. One needs only to spend a leave with him to find how he rates with the women in the home " podunk. " He is the best of room- mates; his heart is big and his opinions are changing. Football Navy Numerals (2), Manager (7); Class Lacrosse (4); Two Stripes. THIS denizen of the Golden State hap- pened upon us fellow sufferers via the school for wandering boys at Severn. Possessed of an equable, generous nature, he usually succeeds in his studies through his innate ability to pile up velvet early. His boyish pranks on classmates are both humorous and enjoyable — for him. Just ask him to recall the episode of the egg. Having a destiny for success at crew, a combination of midday desserts and ability as a tennis player caused him to desert the river during his Youngster Year. With the women it may be said that he is true to but one al- though numerous side issues — they don ' t count — could be mentioned. He experienced many encounters Plebe Year because of his assumption of a brace worthy of a sea-going ensign. But withal we find him warm- hearted, affable, blundering, and well-liked by all of his confreres. " Say Urk! What ' s that damn bell for? " Ttnnis (j).

" Oh! well, I ' m ' way ahead of the boys and they ' re bound to catch me some times " comprises a bit of his philoso- phy. " Nietzche never had anything on me. " Second Class year nearly proved his down- fall so far as demerits were concerned, but a little thing like leave taken away never bothered this son of old Virginia in the least. " Annapolis is just what you make it; so why worry. " Claims to be a good judge of wine, horses and women and we ' ll say he ' s right although he hasn ' t had a chance to exploit any horses around " heah. " The Academics never bother him much and he was always able to come through with fly- ing colors that last month of the term if he managed to find himself behind. A good track man— studies and the ship combined to break up his chances for two successive years; but his philosophical out- look always carried him over. " Nothing but fickle fortune. " He is undoubtedly one of the best known boys in the class and well liked by " all Hands " ; a bit too quick on the draw but he should have a successful naval career after the " inhibitory influences of the Academy are over.

By his late entrance, however, he missed that precious part of Plebe Year that few of us fully appreciated until later in that stren- uous year. " Nick " is a true example of versatility itself, for whatever he lends a hand at, the results are invariably success. Whether on the tennis court or on the track he can cer- tainly show a high quality of goods. Along with his athletic abilities his great love of sleep should also be dwelt upon. In tact, some of his intimate cohorts are strongly in favor of nominating him for the All Amer- ican sleeping team. Wherever " Nick " may roam he always seems to be able to fit in with the surround- ings and impress everyone by his ease and " Nicholonian " smile; so when he joined the Navy he found just the right place to dis- play himself.

Their loss was our gain and from this Beau Brummel, debonair Plebe we have developed a real sea-going hombre. We have forgotten what Phil was famous for Plebe Year, but to us he is fam- ous for his winning smile and his ever cheerful disposition. Phil still holds his old collegiate fascina- tion for the femmes. His chief faults are dragging and music; so when he is not din- ing out he is usually serenading the alley. Phil is best at whistling but as that is non- reg he manages to disturb our peace with some other form of syncopation. He has a natural leaning toward ath- etics, his activities in this line covering a wide range of sports. Ever since Phil broke two oars in one day at crew practice, he has been an ardent devotee of rowing. We pre- dict a regular seat and a successful season for him next Spring. By an uncanny ability to pull sat Phil has often surprised our most optimistic pre- dictions, and has won many an uphill struggle against the Academic Department. Ever a hard worker, Phil has developed into an officer whose service record will speak for the man who makes it.

There isn ' t much of him, but the old saying about little things certainly holds good. Coming to the Navy in ' 13, Jack was graduated from Crane Tech that same year. During that memorable Plebe Year, " Fox " gave the first class plenty to think about, in order to try to disconcert him. Our boy handles the gloves pretty well, and steps around with the feather weights of Spike ' s " Big Bruisers. " He is quite a gymnast too, and Plebe Year, he earned Navy numerals. The Math Department had it in for him tho ' , and decided to increase his mastery over slipsticks and handbooks. That ' s where ' 2.7 lost and ' 2.8 benefited. Jack is a likeable little fellow, even if he does borrow the shoe polish and forgets to return it. Every cruise, he comes back with an increasing list of femmes, and we suggest that he start a Navy in Salt Lake City. The only enemies he has are Math and Skinny books, for even the profs like him. With a dazzling smile, a keen sense of humor, and a magnetism all his own, it is trulv a privi- lege to be his friend. " Hey fellows, who ' s putting out the skags?

His ambition is to drag two weeks in succession without going unsat. It ' s a treat to hear him when he ' s rhino because he surely is an artist at griping and still managing to keep a broad grin throughout. Rit is an authority on pulling sat. The end of each term finds him coaxing the little molecules and integrals into the limelight and crashing through with a glorious two point five. His earnest desire to graduate coupled with a d etermined will to win has kept him one jump ahead of the Academic Board. Rit is quite a rifle expert, and second class year he earned the right to wear the silver small arms medal after winning second place in the annual competition. He has fired with the varsity rifle team and is sure to sport a letter before graduating. Although Rit spends most of his time bon- ing hard or over at the rifle range, he man- ages to find time to sit in on a snappy bridge game or step around with the best of them at the hops. A fine shipmate, a great fellow, a pleasant companion, in short a real gentle- man, Rit will be a valuable addition to any wardroom of the Navy.

He is tall, has sandy colored hair, blue eyes, a congenial smile, and an argumentative frame of mind. He is an ultra critic even to his rating of feminine beauty, and in spite of his frequent loss of faith in women, there is always another coming along to restore that lost con- fidence. Zeke has a fun loving nature that has few equals. The amount that he has contributed to relieving the monotonv of routine work cannot be over estimated, especially on cruises where he was the never ending source of " dope. " On the other hand we should not over- look the more serious side of his nature. He is conscientious. This, combined with am- bition, aggressiveness, and an ability to judge men, points to success in a naval career.

He couldn ' t get away untainted, and to this day he takes a lay off with, " I ' m going to knock off and caulk. " After struggling through an overdose of Math he reduced his overhead to the Cosmopolitan and Sub and Weak Squad. He has refused to affiliate himself with any of the activities as such, but " Tommy " can always be counted on to lend a hand when work is to be done. On our entering a room and conversing with him, he talks freely and most interest- ingly, but in a group he is bashful. His real nickname should be the " Silent Pardner. " He is one of the powers behind — quiet and unassuming yet when aroused, as at reveil le, his vocal powers are unlimited.

He loves them all, or, at least, makes them believe he does, which all is as it should be. Jack was a good boy; that is, when he left Brooklyn and his dad led him by the hand into the middle of all this. Study is a habit with him, cultivated at St. John ' s prep in " good ole Brooklyn, " where he graduated with the class of 192.1. He learned about books from there. It was a good lesson, too, as he has no trouble in keeping sat now— although it took him a year to get acclimated — it was a tough break though — and inserting the little proverbial " if " it was " now " instead of " then " he would be exploiting a ' 17 ring; but fate does enjoy little pranks. During Plebe Year he became quite a wrestler— maybe it was due to the exces- sive encounters with temptation, spurred on by a few dustings from the side lines; at any rate when the bit was published as to who made varsity numerals, Whitey was among those present. Did I seem to hasten over his " affairs? " No, they demand, really, a separate volume because, as has been said, John is an ardent lover and he had got one convincing line. One hardly; it ' s one for every girl; they love it, and he has got " It. " So all hands are satisfied. But some day there will come one who will give Jack the shock of his life, for he is destined to really fall and fall hard. Which is, again, all as it should be.

He has, however, a touch of the homeland in the way he handles a machine gun. In the everlasting battle with the Ac ' s he didn ' t distinguish himself, but he had little trouble in grinding out a 3.6 when it was necessary or whenever a prof hinted that he couldn ' t get it. ' 2.8 was never without his services in the athletic department, and during second class year he found that he could handle an oar. Since then he has been all for crew, and he will rave for hours over the catch and re- covery if you only but get him started, " The ' 50 ' s nearly beat the varsity tonight. " His only vice was bridge, and every Mon- day morning the waste basket was filled with columned sheets bearing the caption " We— They.

Cookie is quite a snake, and is always seen at the hops handing out his line of light chatter. He always has a " Baltimore Girl " for an attentive listener.

Those four long years he had spent at the Baltimore Pyrotechnic Insritute would push him to the fore in but a short time. Then would the " Moon " embellish her pages with long eulogies on the sal- vation of the Naval Academy by one of the Boys. In the meantime " B-B " did not dis- appoint the city of his nativity, for early in his naval career he learned about " Charlie Noble, " how to swing a ham- mock and all such things. In short he learned, all that are " N ' s " are not block. One morning in the early part of second class year, Lord won for himself everlasting fame. In a spirit of jolly competition with Dan Baxter, " B-B " broke the Academy record for consumption of Baltimore Beef- Steaks. No less than fifty of these durable collision mats did he absorb that a new mark might be hung on the gym bulkhead.

Outside E fNSHRINED in our hearts is a memory of those of ' 2.8 who have been deprived of the great objective which we have labored and lived for these past four years, a commission in the finest service afloat. Familiar faces and more familiar names serve to strengthen the ties of their comradeship and individualism. We may well realize that their absence is one always to be regretted : — never can we make compensa- tion. Collectively and individually they gave their all in kindred spirit and with brotherly sacrifice, to classmate and the Academy. On the great outside, in the rank and file of the lost company, each struggles with his own destinies. Is it not fitting that we pause a moment to wish for them every success on Life " s road and to trust that they who have pa ssed on, may reciprocate a portion of the esteem and pride we hold for them? 163 NORMAN TOWER BALL Ohio Possessing a superabundance of en- ergy, activity, and ability Norm was a star man, on the Crew Plebe year, a contributor to the Log, and Editor-in- Chief of our Lucky Bag. His ambition for larger fields of activity and love of freedom led him to resign. The class wishes you the best of success in your work whatever it may be. EUGENE PAUL BURTON Missouri " Eee - Pee " with his good disposi- tion and fine manly personality won many friends and was well liked by everyone. Besides being well liked he has a barrel of brains and will-power with which he can do most anything. He knows how to use them both and does ! He is a boy who can meet conditions readily and make good anywhere. ARTHUR ST. CLAIR WALDEN Ohio The first member of the class of ' i8 to gain that coveted privilege of wearing an N . While playing foot- ball, to put ' x8 on the Harvard Shield, he received a broken arm which kept his setvices from the Lacrosse team the following spring. Here ' s the best of luck to you Al, always! DE WITT DAVIS, 3D Michigan " There ' s formation! Tell ' em I ' ll be there as soon as I find my books. " At formation: " I ' m here. What ' s the lesson? Twenty pages? How do they expect me to bone all that in three minutes? They ought to give charter lessons around this place. " Savvy? No end! Non-reg? That ' s just what I was about to suggest. JOHN COLLIN McMANEMIN New Jersey After standing high academically for three years Mac left us at the end of first class cruise as a result of several heated skirmishes with the Executive Department. He is now located in Philadelphia and bids fair to be one of the boys who resigned and made good. CHARLES BROADBENT New York Charley was a boy you would no- tice in a crowd. He lived up to expec- tations and became one of our out- standing athletes. However, fate dealt him a hard blow. After he had spent some time in the hospital the medics got him, and he left our fold. We were sorry to see him go, but we are sure that he will make good in his under- takings. EDWIN DINWIDDIE McKEE Washington, D. C. Few boys left closer friends than did Eddie when he left us Second Class year to follow paths nearer to his heart. A pal, upright and honest, with high ideals, we know he will succeed as he would have done with Uncle Sam by remaining in the service. CARLOS RANSOM BOSS Pennsylvania ' 2.7 ' s loss was our gain, but not for long. The great outside called and Caesar obeyed the summons at the end of Second Class year. When last heard of he was in the insurance business. Best of luck to you, Caesar, and lots of it. FRANKLIN WEBSTER WAKEFIELD, Jr. Illinois There are two types of men: those so-called, and those worthy of the name in its true sense. Beans was a leader of the latter type, and we fully realized that we were losing one of sterling qualities when Beans resigned to complete his education at Cornell. RICHARD ALEXANDER HAINES New York " Thug " entered the Academy with ambitions to succeed in the academics and athletics, and by constant plug- ging made the grade up to fitst class year. He will ever be known as one who doesn ' t fear work. All his friends wish him the best of luck and know that he will succeed in ' cit ' life. OUTSU v i r ■ 164 HARRY MORGAN HOLLAND Texas Entering the first day of Plebe Summer, " Waxa " was always the " life o ' the party " in every gathering. He left us Second Class year because of poor eyesight. We miss his good nature and cheerfulness. He was a staunch supporter of Waxahachie, Queen City of the Cotton Belt. " Waxa " is now back in Texas and is happy. We wish for him the best o ' luck always. WILLIAM DEAN LEWIS Ohio A three year battle with the Aca- demics resulted in defeat only on account of his health. If Bill ' s per- sonality and ability shown while he was with us is a criterion of his future, then success and happiness surely lie before him. MADISON DALLAS PICKENS Mississippi An easy-going Southerner of hand- some countenance, likeable disposi- tion, and a philosophical lover of poetry. Dallas left us Second Class year to become affiliated with one of our " great dailies. " A true friend and a man who knew his own mind, he is now employed in Washington. CARL CLINTON COOK Arkansas When the game got rough the coach sent " Kayo " in. When it came to nerve, fight and tenacity, the boy was there. Life for Carl was one great gamble — to be taken seriously when necessary but at all other times a huge joke. He possesses a warm spot in the hearts of his classmates that will not soon be lost. HARRY CARLETON QUAST Wisconsin Harry bilged what got so many of us, Navigation. But possessed with an indomitable will to win, a heart of gold, and a character that cannot be equalled, he will succeed wherever he goes. Harry ' s friends will never forget him and he left a gap in the service that will be hard to fill. DREWRY AUGUSTUS BEALL Alabama When Alabama sent us Beall, she did us another good turn. For two years we enjoyed his friendship and sunny smile. When other climes called him it was with the greatest of regrets that we said " Goodbye " and wished him " bon voyage. " WILLIAM LEE LYONS BROWN Kentucky " The higher the possum — " — such was " Farmer, " always giving toasts, full of fun, jolly, and a happy-go- lucky fellow. There was always to be seen pep and smiles following such an animated personality. He was a part of the class that it was hard to see leave. EARL LEWIS SACKETT Texas Earl was from the wide open spaces of Texas and the Navy seemed to cramp his execution. So as time went on he departed from our midst. But as years pass we all remember the days when " Chick " was with us. Happy memories, too. HENRY TURNER SLOCUM Massachusetts With the appearance and other qualifications of a leader " Si " came to the Naval Academy after a year at Harvard and another year in the Navy with much promise of becoming a success as a naval officer. We were sorry to lose him to the fetters of a " ball and chain PIERRE CLYDE PERRINE Indiana The Navy lost a fine officer when " Pierre " went back to his native state of Indiana. We all wish you the best of luck, Pierre. SIDE f i6 5 LUKE EDWARD WHITE Connecticut The boy from Putnam, Connecticut, like old Israel Putnam, left the plow to join the fray. After excitement of Plebe year and the pleasures of Young- ster cruise, he became third classman. Luke wandered up on the fourth deck one spring night and after a cruise on the Reina left us. He now has an im- portant position with the John Han- cock Ins. Co. LESTER BRUTON SANDS Arizona Lester left us Second Class year after seeing us through the worst of the fight. Lester was a wrestler and would have been a great adjunct to the Navy squad. Lester was positive in his opinion, a congenial classmate, a willing worker and true friend. May he reach success in the literary world he has chosen for his field. FRANK KLEBART THOMPSON Massachusetts Tommie came to us from Mass. an made the hard ones look easy for two and a half years. However, his sine- cure was nipped when color blindness made it impossible for him to distin- guish his port from starboard running light. He is one who can succeed with the minimum amount of effort and he is doing that now in Webster. BURTON WILBUR DRESBACH Ohio " Skeezix, " as he was called by the first classmen, became famous Plebe year by being able to knock off fifty stoopfalls at one sitting. He used to say, " It sure is tough to be famous. " Burton decided Youngster year that he had better fish to fry and bid us adieu. JOLIN MONTGOMERY WEAR Texas Tex was a true Texan and was proud of it. He never had a worry in his life and was always ready for a good time. His crowning achievement was at " Kelly ' s Stables, " Chicago — " You don ' t know any girls. I don ' t either. Let ' s get a keg and a boat and go fishing. " STUART MOFFETT BARNETTE Delaware A big grin topped by a shock of curly red hair — " What say, Polly? " From behind a drawing board and box of paints — casual concern for aca- demics — Brick. When he was with us he did much toward designing our class crest. In fact he was chairman of thatcommittee. Now he ' s designing bigger things in the College of Ar- chitecture of M.IT. GEORGE DONALD WOOD Georgia We shall always remember George as a quiet, congenial type of fellow, a good mixer in any crowd and beloved by his classmates. It was a sad day for us when the Medicos took him from us and we wish him every suc- cess on Life ' s journey. FRANCIS JOSEPH WIEDEMANN Massachusetts Wiedv is one of these boys that makes friends easily. On Youngster cruise he was very popular with a certain few of the first class and was always picked for working parties. During Youngster year, he tried a great chemical experiment and spent thirty days on the Reina. He is now with the Grant Co. of Boston. RALPH WILLIAM RICHARDSON Pennsylvania In the Spring of Second Class year Rich decided love and salt water don ' t mix; so he changed step from a martial to a marital march. A good boy who took the best wishes of the class with him when he gave up the Navy for Nellie. CHESTER CECIL WINE Texas Chester Cecil Wine, alias " Sandy " hailed from the land of cactus and cattle, San Antonio, Texas. Sandy was one of the most studious of the class, often turning out before reveille to study. But in Second Class year his strenuous, scholarly habits caused his eyes to fail him, and now he is adding to his fund of learning at Texas U. 166 JOHN RICHARD EDGINGTON Pennsylvania Can we ever forget " Johnny! " Who is it that salutes us with such a manly greeting, accompanied by that never- failing, cheery smile 3 Whence those sweet strains we hear down the corri- dor just as soon as reveille " busts? " That ' s Johnny Edgington and his guitar, fellows, and he ' s as true as the notes he strums. ROBERT LEE HUBBARD Tennessee " Snakey, " a true Southern Gentle- man, left us the first term of Young- ster year in pursuit of fame and for- tune with the General Motors. Every Midshipman, and unfortunately his drags, too, knew Snakey. " Oh boy, was she hot! " HENRY MacDONALD STILLMAN Wisconsin " Heinie " is affectionately remem- bered by his classmates as the designer of their class ring, but like Moses and the Promised Land, having designed the ring he was unable to wear one. He severed his connections with the Academy Youngster year to start the exodus of mariners to Cornell. Here in accordance with his winning ways life for him is one long rosy dream. LOUIS ARTHUR SAVAGE Indiana Lou is a budding young lawyer down Indiana way at the present writ- ing. The latest word we had was that he was a potential district attorney; probably the next will be that he is appointing our successors. From our experience with him we |udge he didn ' t miss his calling. LYMAN HERRICK BELL Iowa When in June, 1916, Lymie parted from us we knew that we were losing one of our finest classmates. A square- shooter, a true friend, Lyman was ever an example to us. His genial smile won our hearts and will always remain with us. Indeed, it was Iowa ' s gain and Navv ' s loss. OMAR JAMES KENT Washington As Plebe summer was drawing to a close, a young lad came out of the West to join us. Plebe year he proved himself to be quite a basketball player and a track man. The God of the 1.5 failed for once and he left us Second Class year. Omar has continued his education at the University of Wash- ington and will become a business man. DONALD EDWARD CARLSON California Blessed with a goodly amount of native intelligence, Don had little difficulty in keeping on the right path. At the second-class physical exam they made the discovery that " Swede " was unable to distinguish between a man-o-war and a bumboat at fifty feet, we lost and Stanford gained. CEDRIC CORNWALL HORNBY Nebraska Ced ' s work here was most com- mendable. The result of his eye exami- nation Second Class year was the cause of his resignation. At Yale he decided to take Mechanical Engineering. He is the type who fits well into college activities and the ones who knew him here wish him the greatest success. WILLIAM JAMES LANDEN Massachusetts The call of the Navy was not strong enough, and in February of Youngster year Jim left us to try cit life. While here the realm of sports was not unknown to him; active on the " B " squad and on the Plebe base- ball team. The latest dope is that he is entering professional baseball. WILLIAM De ROY ETTLINGER New York Willie is a genuine New Yorker, — living, dreaming, boosting, speaking as New Yorkers do. After a three year ' s cruise he left us. The Big Town keeps its own and it is leading little Willie along a road to success that many of us envy. 167 TOWNSEND SCUDDER VAN ANTWERP New York Life is a succession of associations from which lasting friendships are derived. In our intimacies with Ting we learned to hold a deep esteem and affection for him. Here is a man whose individualistic character is marked by those inherent qualities we admire. If our warm thoughts of him are any criterion of his future success, we may expect the best from him. RICHARD YATES BATTERTON Illinois Dick came smiling through the most rigorous Plebe year possible, but in his second year love beckoned too strongly, and he strayed from our fold. Awards and marks attested to his wrestling ability and literary tal- ent ere his perennial desire for the greener fields ahead took him from us. SAMUEL FLOYD FUTHEY Mississippi " Hey, Sam, got a skag 5 here ' s some matches. " Sam was a good athlete, but the " Ac " department kept him back and finally proved his downfall. He has gone south and bids well to be prominent in the financial world as a banker. HENRY CLAYTON KEELER California Harry was a born aristocrat. Cursed with a sense of humor too subtle for the stolid moronry of the ordinary, his soul sought relief in satire. His chief delight lay in disrupting the com- posure of the Department of English. A gentleman, with the soul of a poet and the nerve of a sportsman, he will ever be cherished in the memory of his classmates. WILLIAM FREDERICK KIRCHOFF Arkansas Bill was one of those who seeming to be savvy here failed to make the grade. He was affable, eager, and cun- ning, a fine man to have in any organi- zation and we surely hated to lose him but the great outside called and he answered. May you make as many new friends as you left behind. u. s.s. )UTSIDE JAMES JUSTIN BURKE Minnesota " Jimmie " came from Minnesota with the Navy in his blood and a determination to succeed in his heart. Two years and a half he studied and succeeded as he wished. Then his eyes made him a cit again. He is now ssp- cializing in electrical engineering at the University of Minnesota. EDWIN KNAPP WINN Wisconsin The combination of a roving nature and the call of marriage were too much for Ed and, again, the Navy was the loser when he left. A man respect- ed by all and very much liked by those who penetrated his cynical exterior and a true friend within. DE EARL MONROE LOGSDON Indiana " Logs " seems born for stormy things. His Plebe year was filled with fire works and the lull of Youngster year was shortlived. A slight inability to see far objects transferred him to the Coast Guard as an Ensign. His way of crushing the obstacles should insure his success there. HOMER DELAINE GRIMMETT Oklahoma Because Dee always had a smile for everyone it is easy to realize why he had so many friends who hated to see him leave us. With the beginning of " Ac " year he assumed a dual role, by which he is best known to us, who still remain— that of " Si, " a person conversant with stock markets, also " Chief " because of his war whoops. KENDRICK TAYLOR New Jersey It was with poignant regret that we bade " Kay " good-bye. It seemed that we had never associated with a person of more sterling worth. He was a classmate and a friend; more no one can be. " ji T - 1 68 Blackburn, B. F. Blakely, J. W. Cain, H. F. CoKER, C. P. Abernethy, J. R. Allbee, H. R. Berkman, O. T. Biggs, F. C. Booth, C. E.

For as a cloudburst long dreaded we dizzily and mutely were swept into the maelstrom of Aca- demic Year. From innocent vicissi- tudes of care-free summer days into the midst of fifteen hundred curious upper classmen plunged our band, three hundred and twelve strong. The acid test was at hand; a year of shat- tered illusions, quenched ambitions and character developing experiences fed on by determination and an un- conscious growth of far-flung Navy " spirit. " Academics loomed gigantic, tolling the knell of some sixty; the ever ' Brace up, Mister ' and ' How many days ' made it all a memorable occasion the June day we emerged from our bondage, monarchs of all we surveyed.

In fact, so practical that be- fore the Chapel dome had faded away as we lumbered down the Chesapeake, we discovered that the Youngster heritage consisted of endless travails, night vigils, more deck scrubbing and too numerous working parties. Never before had our class looked so small; never before had we realized the ten- der cares required by one of Uncle Sam ' s thirty million dollar jewels.

Dormant ability awakened and we were given a practi- cal insight into the duties we would assume upon graduation. Instead of manual travails, duties of supervision were assigned; practical navigation robbed our sleeping hours; notebooks required our waking hours. Yet never before had we enjoyed shore liberties so well. Hospitality ashore eclipsed it- self in each succeeding port.

" Witness article 36, Regulations for the Interior Police, Etc., of the Naval Academy: " The attendants upon Students ' quarters will supply water, brush shoes and clothes, remove slops from the rooms, clean the passages, scrub out the rooms when necessary, and keep the pavements and grounds around the quarters in good order as to cleanliness. " But witness article 32. of the same regs and try to imagine going without that after-dinner skag: ' ' Throughout the Academic year no person is to smoke tobacco anywhere within the Academy walls, except within the premises of the several houses, known as Officers ' and Professors ' quarters, and the other buildings of the establishment; and except in the apartment of the mess-hall building used by Assistant Instructors and others as a mess and sitting room. " Imagine the destruction left in the wake of the room-wrecker of 63 years ago, but see how the " Super- intendent " of a room was protected from the ravages of that ubiquitous character, who was, as today, undoubtedly a Youngster.

Thus the regs and rates of the " Old Nyvee, " and " stand from under " was the dope for those who failed to abide by them. Today, for some, the Old Nyvee may be a thing of the past — memories of the struggles of a young nation to build up its power on the sea — a few memorable phrases which are the watch-words of the service; a few immortal names: Jones, Lawrence, Decatur, Farragut, Dewey . . . phantoms which appear from time to time to inspire the youth of a nation. But for us the spirit of the Old Nyvee is a reality; within these walls are still heard the tales of sailors of old; still does the Severn ' s sharp prow cut the waters of her mother-river; still do the high masts of the old Santee outline themselves against a fading twilight; still do the naval cadets of old go scampering up the w a the Navy has ever dragged— and had bull jests ' twas a bad day for Army [ FROM KNOWLEDGE— SEA POWER 2.2.4 Bed not properly turned back dizzy heights of the mizzen and main on the old square-rigger; still do bolts click and officers inspect on Worden Field; still does the Executive Department hold sway where duty is all; still do the femmes of yore find true romance on the gravel walk . . . they are with us today, those same after-chow gatherings, where with true midshipman harmony the worries of math and steam are easily forgot- ten; those same disciplinary exercises where members of the new fourth class are initiated into the rites and ceremonies of Neptune ' s own; those same justly proud possessors of the coveted stars which show their prowess on gridiron, court, and field. These, and a myriad other traditions have come down to us. So, as the class of ' 18 passes into the ranks of the graduates, may it not only carry with it the spirit of the Old Nyvee, but also leave behind it a record of respect for and belief in those traditions which have been set down by those who have gone before.

Miller Preshlnn ALONG about the middle of June, 1915, some four hundred and nine men foregathered in long, exasperatingly long, lines and thereupon began their careers as " Particularly Pampered Pets " — the right honorable class of 192.9. These four hundred, who, with W.O. ' s to the right of them and W.O. ' s to the left of them, so awkwardly marched to the mess-hall in their great unaccustomed neckerchiefs and oversized shoes claim the distinction of hav- ing been the first class to enter the Academy under the new admission system which requires that every man pass an examination of some kind to prove his fitness A. and B.-neck (above and below). One morning an intense hush fell over the Academy. Something was about to happen. It pervaded the very atmosphere, you could feel the strange tingling sensation that accompanies a half-scared apprehension of an immi- nent and awful event. It was as if a spell of expectation had been lowered over us. Small talk became smaller and loud talk less loud. Suddenly from the high heights above came the fateful word, " There they are! " Whereupon liDGE— SEA POWER £ = ■ HMH1T zi8 Nineteen Twenty-nine the Practice Squadron ambled in, right merrily dropping mud-hooks while we Plebes shivered, smiled a feeble, curious smile and turned to shuffle to formation — rifle range again! But Plebe summer went swiftly and happily by, as do all Plebe summers, and our brave little band who had taken the proverbial Stand, now broke out their unused collars and donned the new blue. We were now full-fledged Plebes and Ac-year had begun. As the days passed we grew less and less out of place in the Regimental organization and finally the old Army-Navy game rolled up and we journeyed up to Little Old New York. Then after yelling our nightiest for the four quarters we saw the score at 10-3. But that didn ' t dampen 2.9 ' s celebration that night — not much! So they ferried us back to Annapolis and ' 16 did their best to entertain us while we counted the days to Leave and tried to forget the Game. Leave! Plebe Year Christmas Leave! Joy, bliss, freedom, hilarity, all blended together. Of all the leaves we get— even the long ones in September Leslie E. Richardson Secretary- Treasurer I FROM KNOWLEDGE- 2.19 " rTH ' THTTHUr MimilfH i( s s — none seems quite so marvelous, none seems quite so packed with high times as that first leave. How many of our class went away care- free, only to return in love. Perhaps that accounts for the sad toll of fifty -odd that Acade- mies reaped when January and the First Term had finished. But old ' 2.9, its numbers lessened kept heads-up, and soon we were snake- dancing around the monument. ' 2.6 had graduated and we were Youngsters! Youngsters who made the very bones of the glorious Herndon shake with glee when he heard the boisterous clamoring of the remaining three hundred and twenty. We as Youngsters looked back over Plebe year, not noting with pride our two new introductions. We had had the singular honor of ushering in the era of the Mackin- tosh rainclothes. Then greatest by far, ' 2.9 claims the honor of having been the first Plebe class to win the coveted Harvard Shield given for general excellence in athletics and for winning the inter-class athletic competition. We then embarked for our first cruise; the last class to make a coal-burning Youngster cruise with all its gripes and privations. How we love to tell of those long dreary hours in the torrid fire-rooms. J " In that gloomy, hot of a hole, Where grime is common and eight bells the goal.

Back at the Academy again we broke out the brightwork polish and turned to polishing up our brass buttons (those we had left after leave) in honor of Her Majesty, The Queen of Roumania.

Then after playing volley ball with the Ac department ' s Ail-American team for a few months, we took time-out to see the greatest team that ever tore up the sod on a gridiron tie Army at 2.1-2.1, to stand in the Soldier ' s stadium and shiver out timbers while the thermome- ter got stuck at 10 degrees. But we of ' 2.9 hold a tender place in our hardened hearts for the good times " Chi " gave us — Meanwhile our volley ball game accounted for several additional casu- alties and reduced our class to two hundred and ninety. Finally June Week rolled around and we climbed another step and surveyed the world from the inspired heights lent by the diagonal two. All this was followed by an oil-burning cruise, the first in the history of the Academy. After which Second Class year. ' 2.9 claims the distinction of being the first class in the past six or seven years to have numbered amongst its members wearers of the buzzard of the two P.O. Second Class Squad leaders and file closers, even guides, so small was the preceding first class. So we felt upon our shoulders a certain increase in the responsibility of the two diags and sober down to wear the added load as gracefully as possible. Then the First Class left us to witness the Pennsylvania game at Philadelphia and the Executive Department to appease our righteous wrath at not being allowed to go, temporarily gave us rank as midshipmen officers. ' 2.9 takes charge for the first time! And oh the glory of those temporary stripes! ... the gnashing of teeth by the few greasy ones omitted in the selection, the howling joy of the " non-reg " three-striper, so created. So we again took our fun where it found us while the First Class tried the same stunt in the sacred precincts of the city called Baltimore. Now once again we witness the slow painful approach of that " week of weeks, " Second Class June Week. Daily we march to the calendar, dream for a minute of the magnificent event, then slowly, gratefully tear off the page to consign another day to the briny arms of Morpheus. At last the fateful day .... strains of sentimental syncopa- tion reach us as we slowly, ever so slowly, walk with the One and Only towards the floor. Ring Dance! and in the marvel- lous depths of those sparkling stones we find a secure delight approaching that huge feeling when rang out for the first time the thunderous cry — " 1 man absent, Sir, " " 9 men absent, Sir, " " i men absent, Sir, " " 9 men absent, Sir.

" Now it ' s all over . . . that first nerve-wracking year with its so-called ter- rors, its few privileges, its spinal columns resembling tangents to ninety degrees, its answers to every query, its full days from reveille to taps, its trial and error method of adaptation to new environment -it was all soon over; sooner than we had ever dared to dream came that long anticipated week - seven days into which were crowded a myriad new experiences, new sensa- tions, new ideas . . . . , a week that was at once a day and a year; came that final tense moment when but a few seconds were left of our Plebe year— then our Company Commander received his coveted diploma and the Plebe Class, by Companies, passed into history. With the frenzied outburst of the pent-up emotion of a long year, we milled through that long forbidden gravel walk; then came hasty farewells, last-minute packing . . . that gloomv morning on which we embarked on the second phase of our Academy life — that experience which would either make us or break us. We later came to realize that that day was for us a red-letter day. z 3 i .1 tr- ! is, Ik; Nineteen-thirty To most of us the whole thing was new, strange, un inviting, to say the least. Some few of us had been so fortunate as to have had experience at sea, but the great majority were at once interested and bewildered; it was this interest which carried us through. It was not long before we got underway, with the Chapel dome fading in the haze — how different our feelings then from the day we next saw the Academy looming up out of the fog three months later. Then followed weeks during which most of us were so busv as hardly to be conscious of time itself, except as a gauge of the amount of work we did, or were supposed to do. But those other long weeks that seemed to drag by like an eternity — under gray Eastern skies, in the shadow of Sierra Nevada ' s snowy peaks, in the dead, still heat of the Tropics .... And with the cruise came new experiences to most of us — new acquaint- ances, new friendships bred of close association and work common to all; came the Isthmus and its superb engineering masterpiece linking East with West; came the West Coast, its thriving cities, its energetic people, its John C. Pirie Secretary-Treasurer 2-33 unrivalled hospitality; came the Tropics, their cloudless enervating days, their cool, star-tilled nights; came finally the climax of our many weeks at sea— battle practice, its intensive preparation, its monotonous routine, its endless precaution and as the last salvo echoed through the still blue of Gonaives, as the last white splashes grew smaller against a rocky shore line, came the realization of a success achieved, a duty fulfilled, and with this came holes in the targets. What remains of the Youngster Cruise which they say ' 30 didn ' t make, is, with the exception of a twenty-four hour storm, but a series of wild anticipations of home, and LEAVE! At last came that long-awaited day; familiar ierry-boats and fishing schooners heralded our home-coming; the ships moved at a snail ' s space up the narrow, buoy-marked channel. Suddenly our hearts stood still; there, rising above blue clouds, resplendent in the morning sun, was the Chapel dome! — as the bay echoed with our hearty cheers for the officers and crew of two splendid ships; as we gazed with fond eyes on the Hall, on the countless Plebes who stared out at us with mixed feelings of consternation and trepidation; as the port anchors went jangling to the bottom at the hands of the " ratey " men, we realized that it was all over — that the weeks had been but as minutes — that they had been well-spent, worth while. Then came hurried embarkation in motor launches, sub-chasers; came the final signal, and the fever- ish race to reach the dock was on. From first to last there was a difference of but a few minutes which seemed like hours. Then checking in and out — drawing cits and uniforms — hastily admonishing gaping, curious Plebes — " Big leave, boy — so long! " and to the White Hills of New England, to the Blue Ridges of Virginia, to the Great Smokies of the South, to the plains of the Mississippi and the snow- capped Rockies and Sierras of the West, to cities, towns, and villages the coun- try over went a gay band, with tanned skins, fabulous tales of the sea, and light hearts. After a glorious month which sur- passes description, which has been lived over and again in our dreams, which ful- ly repaid us for our long summer ' s work, came that rude awakening on the morn- ing of Z3 September, and with it — that ' one diag, ' not in its leave status, but with the few, cherished privileges which go with it. Regardless of how we felt about getting back to work, it had to be done; so most of us resigned our- selves to that fact and dug in — a few malcontent, " leave-hit " Youngsters needed a weekly tree or the pap sheet to bring them around; but on the whole, in everything from academics to athletics, ' 30 showed the way. Now that we look back on our Young- V-mx c y 2-34 ster year, we realize how big a step it was toward that goal which is ours. It was this past year which gave us our position as a class, our class officers; which gave us our first chance to affect the Academy as a class — to accomplish for her, to support her, or to hin- der her. As a class we responded well to the demands made upon us . . , in every activity were found Youngsters, working with a will, giving their time, their energy to some sport, some organization; looking forward to the day when they would be at the helm and would have good use for the experience they had gained. It was this year which served to strengthen rather than weaken those friend- ships which we had formed during Plebe year and the Cruise. It was this year which gave us a better conception of our responsibilities, a deeper love of the Service, a clearer light on the reason for our being here, and above all, a more firm and lasting faith in ourselves as in- dividuals and as a class. Thus we find ourselves at the end of our second year. In retrospect, the past seems brief but full. Some days were brighter than others, our spirits soared; others, less cheerful, taught us to appreciate the friendly smile, the sincere greeting of that best of friends —a classmate. Each day seemed to add something to us, physically, mentally, spiritually; each day brought us a step nearer to the finished product. With two years behind us, we are ready to assume some of the responsibilities of the Regiment. Let us face these new duties with that same spirit with which we faced first Plebe year, then Youngster cruise, and finally Youngster year; with that same spirit which prompted Jonas Ingram to say: " ... the class of ' 30 has got IT! " May that spirit, that intangible something which has held us together so far, which has united us in a bond of comradeship which is peculiar only to classmates at the Academy, help us to carry on in the year to come. Let us look forward eagerly to the future, to the days when ' 30 takes charge! o v :A POWER 2-35 rmw i lu$$y c =T£JmuL I 0° The Class of ALMOST a year has gone by since the Class of 193 1 made its XX advent into the Naval Academy. Six hundred and four of the representative youth of the nation successfully surmounted the mental and physical harriers to attain that enviable title of " Midshipman. " This large class, coming from all walks of life, has been assimilated into the Regiment; we have gone through the primary stages of the mission of the Naval Acade- mv: " To mold the material received into educatedgentlemen. " During the summer we were often told that Plebe Summer was the happiest time of our Navy career. In our youth and inexperience we did not realize the truth of that statement; as a result, we probably did not get as much out of those few months as we might have, had we only known — ! But those days of freedom, of enjoying all rates, will never be forgotten. Many of us were quite unused to the " iron hand of discipline, " and were rather prone to indulge in self-expression; from thence 136 -r Nineteen Thirty-one came our troubles. Those months of varied training ended all too soon; the Regiment returned from the cruise and we had our first glimpse of naval efficiency. Then followed a month of pre-academic work in prepa- ration for the regular school year. At last the first form- ation of the academic year came and we were plunged into a new life, a life that was both interesting and awe- inspiring. Not until then did we realize the purpose of the training which we had received throughout the sum- mer, and because of that training we were able at once to take our place as a part of the regimental organization. The football season imbued us with that old Navy fight, the indomitable Will to Win. That memorable trip to New York made us realize just what it meant to be a midshipman. We were proud of ourselves, of the Regiment, of the Navy, and of OUR team. i nn mmumMMM ' m 3M K i— SEA POWER 2-37 EX SCIENTIA TRIDENS Christmas leave was slow in coming; it seemed as if Z3 December would never arrive, but at last it did and we were free for ten days, free to go wherever we pleased and to do whatever we pleased. Many of us were fortunate enough to be at home during the holidays, and what a pleasure it was to be the pride and joy of the family, how different it was from our amoebic existence at the academy. But that, too, had to end and we returned to Bancroft Hall for that long grind from January until June, five months without a break. Winter sports, a basketball victory over Army, Gymkhana, and a few sundry activities were all we had to relieve the monotony. Even this relief was short-lived, however, for Spring soon came bringing with it that bane of all wouldbe students — Spring fever. " How many days, mister? " — and June Week was but a few hours away. Had we done our part throughout the year? Were we satisfied with our record for the past twelve months? Many of our class- mates failed to weather the tempests of the Academic Department; but now that our Plebe year is history, we who remain can look back upon that memorable time and smile, for we have weathered the storm and have brought our ship safely into port. We have been tried, we have stood the test, we have not been found lacking. " On the strength of one link in the cable Dependeth the might of the chain; Who knows when thou may est be tested ? So live that thou bearest the strain.

Drum, Andrew B. Garton, Will M. The Class Roster P URING our long months as fourth classmen, we have been continually con- ■ — fronted with those well known words, " Whereyoufromister? " Now then, if former Lucky Bags had had the foresight to publish a class roster, this embarrassing question might not have been thought of, for what is so rare as an upper classman spooning all over a plebe just because his home podunk happens to be on the same railroad line. Just the same, when the town bumwad celebrates a patriotic holiday, they will discover in this section of the Lucky Bag, the name of their illustrious son. When the citizens of Baltimore decide to visit the Naval Academy on a tour of inspection, they will immediately know who all the Baltimore Boys are that inhabit our famous campus. And so it goes ad infinitum. Gray grizzled flag of ficers will chuckle as they discover that in the latest batch of raw ensigns, there is one from the old home town. The world is a small place and it is here that you may discover that long lost friend of your childhood days dressed in blue and gold. Even from the four corners of these United States do they pour in steadily each year and in order to be sure that you have spooned on all the representatives of your town, city, or state, be sure you have read the class roster first, then act at your own discretion. 2.49 To complete the history of our class, it is essential that we portray the various members in that all im- portant phase of our curriculum which we next present — The Activities.

The spirit that actuates the members of these organizations is that spirit that bids one do a little more than just what is required of him. The experience acquired in activity work, the organization neces- sary, and the contacts made, are great assets to our training as naval officers. We go to the Fleet better prepared to carry on. The specific continuation of this work in the Fleet is that of service publications, ship ' s papers, songs, " happy hours, " and entertainments. These are some of the many things that go to make a ship a little better than the others, which creates the spirit in each individual that his actions must be, first and last, " for the good of the ship.

The colorful hop cards, the decorations festooning the armory, the cooling refreshments awaiting you in Smoke Park, — in fact, everything but the football stands in the way of accommodation is the result of the thoughtful efforts of the Hop Committee. However, their duties are not confined within this small compass. At every hop you can find one man on the receiving stand, performing the duties of a cordial host with the graces of a debonair gentile homme. There is always someone at the door to meet you with a cheery greeting, and start the evening off right. The wearers of the sword belt are exceedingly helpful in retrieving lost bracelets, or in locating stray middies, and are put to good use in many more ways. 151 Top Row: Lee, Walsh, Weir, Collins, Moffett, Coll Seated: Radom, ]j Underbill, Belden, Boyd The Ring Dance Committee WHAT memory will linger as does that of the dance when the sweetest girl in the world slipped that traditional circlet of gold on the second finger? The dance itself was the greatest delight of June Week. A warm and delightfully hued glow suffused Mahan Hall from ships in blue and gold silhouette as lighting fixtures. From the dome of the Hall blue and gold spiralling streams seemed to float to the balconies as the scintillating colored lights played about the dome. And that music! The picked troops of the All Americans extended themselves for once. Most of the troops never realized what a great deal of effort it takes to put on such an affair. Radom worked on the big ring, designing the crest. Collis and Underhill ruined a perfectly good package of razor blades and several fingers cutting out silhouettes. Van Meter and the combined brains of the Juice Department essayed a trick electrical scheme for lighting effect. Nevertheless the general satisfaction, the beaming countenances, and happy drags repaid in full the untiring efforts of those who gave their lives that Twenty-Eight ' s Ring Dance might be a memorable event. 53 .■ ; frii mnn ii nM l nM " ii n i HH i " TTTT- EdwardJ. Martin Chairman The Pep Committee w: " ITH the sole intent of promoting good clean sportsman- ship and of arousing interest in athletics here at Naval Academy, the Pep Committee has in the two years of its existence met with great success, and has won for itself a posi- tion among the leading organizations of this institution. Know- ing the value of a true academy spirit such as one can find in no other institution of the world, this organization has lent its wholehearted cooperation and efforts to use this feeling to advantage and has strengthened the bond that binds us together. It is through our athletic squads that we are placed before the public eye, and as representatives of the many states of the union one cannot underestimate the value of impressions so made. Fostering the feeling and respect that is always had for modest winners and good losers and attempting in an unselfish manner to build character and send men of real worth into the service this committee has done all in its power to achieve its purpose. Criticisms have been forthcoming, but have been used to advantage. Such were expected and solicited, for it is only through the suggestions of the entire regiment that the true purpose of the organization can be fulfilled. The past year has been a successful one for those who have striven to do their bit and who have de- voted their time and efforts along these lines. A great satisfaction of knowing that our work has not been in vain will remain with those of us who pass on into the fleet. We leave a huge field behind us for those who remain, and it is our one hope and wish that the classes who follow will benefit by our ex- perience and carry on where we have been forced to leave off at graduation. 1 «fff : ' -.

New ideas have been tried out during the past year and the organization is now working perfectly. The chairman has placed the organization on a sound and firm working basis with the help of the Executive and Athletic Departments. We have three divisions in our organization, namely; the fall, winter and spring divisions. The fall division is made up entirely of first and second classmen. There are about thirty in this division. The winter division is made up of the three upper classes and is by far our largest group of workers. The third classmen are under observation during this period of the year. The spring division consists of first and second classmen and those third classmen recommended by other members of the committee. Now don ' t try to make the Reception Committee just for the sake of being excused from noon formation and Captain ' s inspection on Saturday. You won ' t get away with it, for you will have to stand inspection anyhow. There will be in the neighborhood of a hundred admirals, captains, and commanders inspecting you instead of just one captain or commander. You will have to look your best so that the people with whom you come in contact will form a good opinion of the service which you represent. The Regiment attends an Army-Navy Game once a year, at which time its conduct must be of the highest caliber in order that the traditions of the service may be upheld. The Reception Committee attends an Army-Navy Game every week, in that the conduct and actions of its members must be above reproach in order that a firm regard for the service will be entertained by all who come to and go from the Academy as our friends, the enemy.

With the crest as a basis, the remainder of the design was worked out with the help of several competing firms. Many a hectic night was spent in " Heinie " Still- man ' s room debating the pros and cons of the various designs and finally with the help of God and the Executive Department, a final design was selected which was thoroughly approved by the class. Soon came the day when our greatest expectations were fulfilled. The sample rings submitted by the competing companies arrived! There was not the slightest doubt in an y one ' s mind that the muchly cherished band of gold which was soon to be our ' s, was the best looking ring that was ever to repre- sent a class. We will think so twenty years from now and as the years take with them the clear cut engraving and the band becomes smooth as the tops of our heads, we will still boast about the " best looking ring that ever was worn by a Naval Academy Graduate. " Our ring has a special significance to us and to the world at large, for it is the first one since the days preceding the World War, that is a graduate ' s ring. Every man was honor bound to return his ring in the event that he did not graduate with his class. In the years to come, the ring will have a place of honor in the esteem of men who know the true worth of four years of grind and discipline. Back in the days of high collared uniforms and seagoing mustaches, a naval officer used to depend on his ring to get him through any possible delays and embarrassments due to hesitancy regarding his identification. With the advent of large war classes, it was only natural that a very low per- centage of the men who entered the Academy, wore a ring but did not graduate, which lowered the high standard that it previously enjoved. Since then, all classes have jealously guarded the pinnacle upon which they set their ring. The Class of Nineteen Twenty-Eight is no exception. i5 6 ,Z y »w T v ret w£ % . o» ' f ' • " ' V ' % Cole, Kent, Jones, Quinn, Mitchell Hawk, Wakeman, Radom, Treanor, Binney The Crest Committee T)LEBE year holds a diversity of thrills for the new occupants of Bancroft Hall, but one of the biggest -IT is when the class finds that its own efforts have produced an emblem of unified spirit— its crest. Home sickness is forgotten; the O.A.O. is forgotten for the time being; the upper classmen fade into an insig- nificant background; Joy reigns supreme among the down trodden plebes— the class crest shines forth in all its splendor and soon many an innocent middy has started a movement in the direction of Mary- land Avenue in an effort to emulate old Santa himself. As the second term of Plebe Year became an established fact, so did the class of nineteen twenty- eight. During the never-to-be-forgotten winter months of early nineteen twenty-five, several members of the class started work on the project of developing a class crest. In the first official meeting of the new class, a committee of nine men were chosen, one from each company and in addition, a member from the class at large. Too much credit cannot be given to " Brick " Barnette for his untiring efforts in the preliminary work that was necessary to get the problem in a solvable state. He is showing that same zeal in his work on the great outside. One of the first signs of true class spirit was the unusual interest shown in choosing a design. Many fine ideas were submitted, carefully looked over, and the merits of each fully discussed by the commit- tee. Finally, three attractive designs were selected, posted on the bulletin board opposite the Main Office, and soon the Rotunda was swarming with plebes all anxious to get a look. In a few days, a vote was taken and it was found that the design submitted by Radom won the ap- proval of the majority of the class. This design was sent out to the competing companies and all was quiet on the Severn for the time being. But not for long did this quietude last. The companies bidding for the contract submitted the actual crests made in gold. That was a momentous event for several people, especially for the committee, as their work was drawing to a close. Many a heated discussion took place during those precious moments between releases and other infrequent times. Finally the Bailey, Banks, and Biddle Company was selected to make the crests, stationary, and all the other personal necessities that become apparent to jewelers in such situa- tions. With June Week of that year came the first real privi- lege of dragging to the June Ball, and our drags started the yearly gold shipment out of Annapolis in the form of ' 18 class pins. if ir ' r nmmnH TTT HMHMH .TTT ■ OWLEDGE— SEA.

The card must be such that it sincerely and beautifully expresses the sentiment of Christ- mas and yet carries with it an atmosphere of the sea or the Naval Academy. Under the direction of the chairman, Midshipman A. F. Binney, the 1917 Committee worked to obtain these ends. The cover of the card contained an evening view of Mahan Hall. The soft golden glow of the lights on the snow-mantled foreground provided a scene which appropriately expressed the season of the year. Set in a panel were the worded greetings of the Regiment. The inner page contained a reproduction of Mr. Charles Robert Patterson ' s painting made for the Committee. It was a harbor scene in Hong Kong, China. Surrounded bv junks and sampans, one of our cruisers is lying at anchor for the Christmas holidays. As these are the greeting cards of the Regiment, necessarily they must go to friends of the Regiment. Therefore the work of the Committee did not end with selling the cards; upon them rested the duty of sending the cards to the ships of our fleet, to the officials of our Navy, and to the numerous people who are friends of the Regiment of Midshipmen. To this task many an evening was devoted, but in the end we were satisfied that everyone from the Commander-in-Chief down to the last in line had received a card conveying to him the Regiment ' s sincere wishes for a Merry Christmas and a happy and pros- perous New Year. m la 1 ft.

A compendium of all Naval Academy activities, the " Reef Points " is of as much interest to the upper classes as it is to the Freshmen. The " Reef Points " are demanded upon the first day of their return from a busy summer of hard work and a busier September of no work. It has a word or so to say about everything within the Naval Academy grounds and a good deal more of the " goings on " within them. A succinct article concerning the situation of each branch of athletics at the start of the new year contains also a brief plea setting forth its merits and advantages. " Reef Points " gives all the data on the past years ' sports in which Navy has engaged; also our songs and yells. Herein are written our unwritten laws. That Naval Tradition may be better grasped it is defined and explained in both prose and verse. The most usable part of these little black books are the blanks for the red or blue marks we acquire (or are given) at the end of each month. The marks themselves are of such vital importance as the " velvet " they represent.

While at the Academy the strongest bond that a Midship- man has is his class. Yet there is only one. time when all of its numbers can gather together, beyond the walls, and cement the bonds of friendship. With a knowledge of this fact and by using the well known route to a man ' s heart our small class was made to cooperate in a way that enabled them to put across what later proved to be the best party in the history of the class. On the twentv-first of February we invaded Baltimore, our path leading this time not to the stadium as usual, but to the Southern Hotel. There we found the banquet room decorated with Navy colors, illuminated with soft lights, and filled with the fragrance of flowers and the melodious strains from the orchestra. The usual greetings were followed by the singing of Navy songs, and then — the food. The choice " bits " combined with the flowing " Navy Spirit " took command for a considerable length of time. The salad course was accompanied by the capable entertainers. The six acts which followed — interrupted only by a few " special numbers " — made an appropriate climax. The entire evening was enjoyed by everyone. The members of the committee were in their glory be- cause they saw their untiring efforts crowned with success. After the supper the evening was still young, and everyone then proceeded to different parts of the city to meet his " drag " and make the most of our twentv-seven hour liberty. This last meeting of the class will live forever in the minds of all those who attended and in the years to come, wherever we may be, it will be reviewed with pride. David L.

Their desire was a natural one. Man has always been on a great search for the better things in life; he has ahvays been chasing the rainbow of the infinite ideal. Men of the cave-dwelling period felt the thrill that Longfellow knew when he wrote Excelsior. Nor was there a fundamental difference in the purpose of these, our predecessors. For a while the meetings of this organization, which came to be known as the Naval Academv Christian Association, were held on Sunday afternoons in the old chapel. As the society steadily forged ahead, receiving all the while more and more commendation from those who came in contact with it, its spirit so permeated the regiment that it became a vital factor in the individu- al ' s life, and was recognized as a necessity at the Academv. Today we are privileged to enjoy the fruits of the labor and courage of those who have preceded us. And indeed, the Christian Association has become identified with everything that tends to make life just a little more pleasant here. We go to " Smoke Hall, " and there find all the leading newspapers and magazines. On Sunday evenings we have the privilege of listening to the greatest minds in America; hence the words of the five-striper: " Now the speaker at the Christian Association will be . Plebes will carry chairs, " comes as a pleasant announcement of the treat to follow. Chaplain Sidney K.

This advertisement may be good or bad, for the team reflects the spirit of the school it represents. If every student of that school is endowed with a unified desire to inspire his team to greater achievement, then that team is the school ' s best representative. To make a winning team, every man must do his part. This is to acquire the fighting spirit that in- spires his team with the impregnable, " Will to Win. " To instill this spirit in the regiment is the objective of the cheer leaders. They are the ones to lead us in a siren or an old Four-N at the crucial moment; to call the pep rally on Fridav night to give the gang the dope on our next opponent so that we may get " right " and take them with the old Navy fight. It is this objective and the desire to make the Navy spirit a part of each of us, that foster the work of Jonas Ingram, his cohorts, and the cheer leaders.

Since then it has continued to function through the quarterly appearance of its magazine and the publication of " Anchors Aweigh " and the " Book of Navy Songs. " It seems that in every organization you will find some who must convey their thoughts to others. This thev can do in one of two ways, by conversation or by writing. What joy there is in writing your thoughts. It elevates you above yourself. A world without literature would be primeval chaos. Man is gone beyond the stage of brute; mental life is as essential as phvsical welfare. It was with such motives stirring them that the individuals aspiring to grasp at and taste Art ' s joys emerged from beneath their military exterior to woo Literature openly. Some may say in such surroundings as our own there is no room for such things. Yet consider the qualifications of a naval officer. One of them is that he be a gentleman and that implies taste for the fine things in life. In our profession romance is scattered profusely on every hand. Have you ever appreciated the moon- lit nights when you had the mid-watch? Remember the beautiful sunrises and wonderful sunsets, the might of the angry sea, and the charm of strange places? All these wait to be appreciated Those in the society aim to do that, and it is to their efforts that the Academy owes its interest in life beyond the wall surrounding the Yard. Literature is the key to the Past, the Present, and the Future. If tentative plans materialize, the Academy will have an able representative in a field where other schools have ventured but few endured. It is hoped then that with proper support from those at school and those at sea the Trident will progress and win new laurels for the Service. Ernest E. Pollock President i l J , .

Their purpose is to sow thoughts and ideas among people. We plead guilty to the same offense. We have our bit of propaganda to broadcast and we do that through our printed voice, the Trident Magazine. Can you blame us if the few " nuts " get together for a good purpose? Their purpose is to publish a magazine which will infuse interest in the Navy, its traditions, its stories, its men, its glory, its literature and all that characterizes it as OUR NAVY. Navy Dav, Christmas, Easter, and June Week always come with the Trident full of interesting facts and information which too many are inclined to disregard. Contributions have come, not profusely but sufficiently to make its appearance possible. It is realized that midshipmen and officers in the Fleet have little time for writing. Under the circumstances the results are very gratifying, for the Fleet holds the magazine in high esteem. The motive power behind it all is vested in a handfull of individuals who strive with pens to make some imprint on History ' s page, how indelibly only Time can tell. Their efforts, it is hoped, have not been in vain in laving before the less gifted, new vistas of what the Service is, was, and shall be. At each monthly meeting you will hear the harangue of literary zealots flinging plots, poems, stories, and ideas at each other. Then a week or two later the editor gets results, and so the magazine thrives. But this is not all due to the efforts of the midshipmen. Without the help of those in the Fleet and the guiding hands of advisors we would soon run aground. Experienced hands hold the wheel and prevent such a mishap; so to those who gave us guidance we also pay our due. ifer , v. ■-«- _ " v.

James EiUtor-in-Cbicj Professor Howard McCormkk Literary Advisor TO build, to create, to reach out into the dark unknown, to make something from nothing; this has been the task of the Lucky Bag staff. Not merely to create, but in this very work to preserve a record of the Class of Nineteen Twenty-Eight and its four years of struggle against adversity. A task that has been accomplished only with the careful labors of those to whom the very name of the book is synony- mous with " trees, " " extended taps, " " bilged again, " and all manner of things that disrupt the ordi- nary course of life. Trouble started back in the dim past when Plebes were Plebes and as youngsters we could carry on. Without even a rudimentarv knowledge of fog signals we were shoved into the haze with nothing but a goal before us. Then came the first rift in the clouds. A Motif, something in the name of which we could sin, and from that day " Ex Scientia Tridens " took the blame. To Norman Ball who first was in command, do we owe our gratitude for this brain child. But then he departed and for a space the quiet of the staff was broken not even by the throbbing of a brain, till first class cruise, when minds that had lain dormant burst forth with a galaxy of ideas. Art work, design, layouts and all tumbled down upon us in ever increasing numbers. Our plans and schemes were appearing before us in black and white. Perhaps we should add all the primary colors in this list, as many paintings were received and approved for the book. The outstanding examples of these are the paintings prepared for the frontispiece and dedication illustrations. Herein, we believe we have reached the zenith of our theme, " From Knowledge— Sea Power. " From word pictures were these Kent, Ballance, Harris, Pye, Howard, Kendall, Todd Radom, Dexter, Moffett, James, McCormick, Burzynski, Momm ii m i imn M il i t 168 TTTTTTTYTTTTm of Nineteen Twenty-Eight Lt. -Commander M. L. Deyo Officer Representative James H. Brett Business Manager painted in a most creditable manner. From word pictures were all other drawings created, in our effort to breathe into the book the story " Ex Scientia Tridens. " The formative state had passed and the Lucky Bag took on a skeleton like appearance. For some short space of time it remained this way until the rattle of its bony shape disturbed the peace of the staff, and flesh was put upon the frame. Hundreds of pictures were taken, cut and shipped; reams of paper were consumed in recording the ravings of our weary minds. Then came proofs and with them the paste pot, scissors, and blue pencil. Nightly taps sounded, but was unheard by the denizens of the editorial office, till finally the last page was shipped. While scissors were clipping in the editorial office, low rumbles of disgust were heard as they seeped through the bulkhead from the business office. Hour on hour was spent bv our brother staff in pursuit of the elusive greenback. Schemes were evolved, and ideas were propounded for the scalping of the unwarv public — Regiment of Midshipmen included — until finally the bank balance gave promise of equalling our indebtedness. In the course of their efforts the business staff soon came to disbelieve the age old adage that " A fool and his money are soon parted. " Days, weeks, and even months were spent in the collection of our paper sums. Then came the dav when the wheels of activity slowed. The work was done but many uneasy nights would be spent while we hoped and prayed for the success of the fruits of our labors.

" CHICO " McCORMICK Photographic Editor Without Mac, this book would have been as interesting as a math book.

The line pictures that vou see in this book are due to his efforts. ALBERT MOMM Associate Editor Associate-Editor, that is his title, and no man has worked as hard and in such varied capacities as has our Albert. Aside from his work on the board, he has compiled the Japanese Section, and has had a hand in the design and construction of practi- cally every part of the book.

Midshipman wit was flowing, spicing tales of Plebe and Youngster year and reminiscences of cruises here and there. But suddenly someone struck a more serious vein. Reflectively blowing bubbles of froth from his stein, he began to lament the near approach of the dav when they would be scattered over the high seas and each would have to preserve such memories of old days for himself. A pity, was it not, that they could not crystallize such precious things in a form that could never be destroyed. A chorus of assent and despair arose. But the idea was conceived. Before the party came wandering in for taps the Lucky Bag was born and that year ' 94 saw its first issue. Since then nearly three dozen volumes have been produced by successive classes. This is the thirty- fifth and the thirty-sixth, that of the class of Twenty-nine, is already half completed. The first Lucky Bag seems crude to our eves. But it was done by the Midshipmen themselves and as the founders said, thev would be content if all they did was to " blaze the way for those to follow. " Nobly they blazed and well. In a few vears The Bag took its place as the foremost college annual and there are not many to dispute that claim today. Since those davs The Bag has changed but little. The girls that chance to wander through its pages have lost some clothes, the vard view editor has more to worry him, our collars have become more civilized, caps no longer look like tarn o ' shanters, but these are only superficial. Midshipmen are the same and The Lucky Bag has been the same. Perhaps without sacrificing any of the old features, dear to generations of midshipmen, something more comprehensive might be made of it. Since ' i6, in an attempt to realize this aspiration, The Lucky Bag has been built around a predetermined theme, in the hope that this would not only increase its range but aid in securing that most difficult of all qualities in an annual, coherence. Surely with our rich gift of tradition and achievement in the past, it would be possible to put in this book a little of the ideals of the Navy without sacrificing any of the class individuality. Thus the staff of The Lucky Bag of 1919 has chosen for its theme— " The Navy in Peace Time. " We feel that it would be fitting to dedicate a Bag to that long list of Naval heroes who have served their country, not in War, but in Peace. Those men who have manned their ships and kept them always ready lest they should be taken unawares. Always faithful whether the drums of glory roll or not. And while they did their jobs they have made of the Navy more than an instrument of destruction. In exploration, astronomv, hydrography, navigation, cartography, engineering, electricity, radio, aviation, relief and rescue work and in many other fields the navy has done its bit and contributed its share. Such names as Mahan, Wilkes, Melville, DeLong, Perry, Byrd and generations of Rogers are famous the world over -not for their valor in war — but for that which they did in peace. To these and the nameless C.P.O. ' s and sailor heroes of peace, The Lucky Bag of 192.9 is dedicated. J V: LDGE— SEA.

Then formation, chow, the first class lecture, Youngsters visiting, M.C. ' s worrying, W.O. ' s papping, and the Regiment boning — what! . . , not seamanship, nav, juice, ordnance, skinny, bull, dago — ?? don ' t be Asiatic, the Log of course. Amid such surroundings the Naval Academy ' s wittiest weekly is read from cover to cover, from the amateur artists of the front cover who make a forty look like a nutcracker to the professional artists of the back cover who make a skag look more desirable than a bath on a cruise. Is it possible that such a magazine as the Log is put out solely by Midshipmen? Those witty jokes, those amorous poems, those snappy cartoons, those stirring editorials, are they the product of minds which think or should think in terms of everything mechanical from helical surfaces to entro- py? Almost as impossible as that 5:30 Java without that 5:30 skag, but true, nevertheless. Here they are, just a bunch of the boys: the two Eds, Jack, Red, Matt, Al, Phil, Acey, Dave, and so on far into the staff. These are the men who have moulded the destinies of the Log since ' 2.7 turned it over. There was no let-up. Every week the Log had to come out, otherwise the Regiment would gripe Friday night; it griped anyway. Reveille could stop busting, formation could be inside for a change, Plebes could be Plebes, Youngsters could cease to be bilgers out of ' 2.9, Second Class could be satisfied with three glasses a meal, First Class could forget their responsibilities, hot water could run in the showers; but the Log must come out every Friday night or bust. This gets to be second nature with the staff. Getting it out every week is as much of a duty for them as is your dragging for the Head of the Department in which you are unsat. So on Wednesday afternoon, when the Regiment is at work or at play somewhere outside of the hall, the staff assembles in 1106 to clip, cut, censor, proof-read, paste, Edwin B.

It ' s a thankless job, com- pensated chiefly by the associations which one makes on the staff. And don ' t be led to believe that this staff is a group of ink-throwing radiator hounds whose flat chests and stooped shoulders never get behind the Academy athletic wheel — no: out of a board consisting of 14 men, six have been on varsity athletic squads while the rest have all played class sports. There you have that group of aspiring youths, pupils of Brisbane and John Held, Jr., who comprise the staff. Manv of them are high in the Regimental organization, somearesavoirs, others are athletes; all together they are as representative a group as can be found in the Hall. Their sole aim is to present a cross-section of Academy life; if they have done this, they have succeeded. But in whose hands rests the helm — who is responsible for the Log ' s policies and politics — who is that guiding spirit who gives the necessary push and punch when a tired staff begins to lay down? These are only a few of the " Skipper ' s " duties, and the Log has found a man full worthy of them in Captain Gilbert K. Rowcliff, its officer representative. Thus is the organization, from lowly Plebe office boy to Skipper. Since 1913 it has been a prime factor in moulding Academy ideals and ideas; may the Regiment ' s continued approval be an indication of its continued success. h ► -v a F - ■ ; " £ !

Coming at the time it did, just before examinations, the production of this dispenser of that griped and rhino feeling undoubtedly put a crimp in the class standing of all connected with it but this was more than compensated for by the personal satisfaction of having done something and having done it well. Preceeding the triumphal entry of the entire cast, two figures in the shortest and filmiest of frocks came tripping in with flowers for Mrs. Nulton and Mrs. Gannon.

Led by their small but very resplendent band leader, the Gymkhana Band gave a faultless rendition of several of the March King ' s most difficult compositions. A take off on Uncle Tom ' s Cabin realistically portrayed the flight of Eliza across the ice and through the swamps, ever followed by the relentless bloodhounds. Little Eva ' s spectacular ascent to heaven was climaxed bv the soft strains of taps originating well near the lofty roof of the gymnasium. The Queen ' s Guards executed the most difficult and intricate of infantry maneuvers in a manner so faultless as to please the most exacting of Queens. Following this came the evolution of the dance from the original Indian war dance to the very latest of modern steps. One could easily imagine himself in far away Spain while watching the Tango or the somewhat rougher Apache dance. Mere words cannot do justice to the performance of Madame X, the Hoss with a past, that most wonderful of trained horses, that " all but serves you soup with a finger in it. " This act was a whole show in itself and Madame X made her exit amid thundering applause. Instead of assuming the role of blood-thirsty pirates this year the Glee Club forsook the Jolly Roger and gave us several popular songs while gathered together in Ye Olde English Tavern. After seeing the Plebe gym team perform with the skill and daring of the Varsity we do not fear for future championships. To end the performance our own incomparable jazz band, The N.A.

Great credit is due to the entire cast and those in charge are deeply indebted to Captain Rowcliff for his deep interest and sound advice.

The Pet of the Regiment, as it is affectionately called, has taken tremendous strides in the broadening of its s and in the number of its appearances. This vear, it has reached al ability and popularity. lg the new policy on the last cruise, the leader chose the most talented and able musicians of the regiment and at the request of the Fleet admiral, brought his Band to the L S S Nevada. Within a week, the Jazz Band began its nightly ap- pearances on deck and became at once the attraction of the ship. The TEX played for the moyies nightly and for many of the .-moon happy hours. It contributed a great deal to the happy : irit of the crew and officers. This last fall, they contributed their bit in the success of the athletic rallies with their blood-rushing high-temperature music. A great step in the br g out of the Band was the establishment of the weekly concerts for the midshipmen and their athletic guests. The musical ability and yersatilirr of the players was publically acclaimed at the Gymkhana per- formance this last February. A yaried concert of classical, symphony, and ]azz numbers, all of the leader ' s own arrangements, is still being talked about. This year ' s programs ha e been so arranged as to please eyeobody.

The Mandolin Club When Anthony went to see Cleopatra, he realized the value of musical environment, and so he took with him his lyre and his lute. People saw that it helped so much, that from then on, serenades were looked upon as essential in all such affairs of the heart. Trs as true that Romeo caused an earth- quake as the barber shop quartet caused business. Last year, under the leadership of " Sadie Marks " the Club sprang a surprise in the Spring show and the audience declined to let them leave the stage until they had given a goodly num- ber of encores. It was one of the most pleasing acts of the even- ing. In thinking of this year ' s show, we still talk of those violins and guitars. Lex Lerov Black, the present leader, is to be congratulated on his radical departure from the estab- lished custom in his using new instruments and arranging his programs to contain different combina- tions of rhythm and tone and in his producing from his club a truly pleasing quality of music. He has given us bv far the most successful Club in the history of the organization. The Glee Club The Glee Club is one of the oldest organizations of the Academy. In 1908, it divided itself from the combined musical associations and became a distinct organization in itself. Throughout the years, it has allied with other musical clubs in the several concerrs and entertainments that are the high spots of the Academv social life. Baron - .V. .i.

The mountain lake has its stream. The bird has its warble. Like- wise the midshipman must have his orchestra. Without the orchestra, the lingering and the latent talents of many suffering midshipmen would languish into oblivion through lack of use. And so per- haps that is the primary purpose of the orchestra — to furnish a means for the routine-weary mid to gain some fresh inspiration. And so the orchestra was organized, practiced, and did its bit. That it did its work well is well known. Not a little credit is due Trescott, the assistant leader, and Pollock, Director of the Combined Shows, who considered the orchestra as his special protege. The executive department was especially tolerant of our many demands. But after all, the success of the orchestra is due those who night after night attended its rehearsals, and without whom no orchestra could have been possible. William Horton Jacobsen, the leader, by his ambitious innovations and his pleasing personality, has gained a host of friends and an enviable reputation as a musical leader. 1 Sjfc v .. wmmW ' ' J 1 1 i 1 Ws ' ' ©fciJ--- l Wl ml m Jf EDGE— SEA POWER 181 I M II HM T H i m ill ' H ' H ' HHJ Trt f TTTT " T?TT t n T»TT M T m r MM fTr r TyTTrTrw Robert E. Van Meter President The Masqueraders t: ' ' HE Masqueraders ' production is always anticipated by the Regiment to break the lull in social activities that accompanies the Lenten season. In order not to disappoint the troops there is more time and energy combined in this production than in any other midshipman activity. The Mas- queraders work from October until March at a none too pleas- ing task. The rewards are few, if any — one can ' t be a matinee idol on two matinees. All the painstaking work of months culminates in four performances. You might well ask, " What on earth do you do with all that time? " Well, you must realize that the directors are not dealing with finished actors, and many other activities (awkward squad, sub squad, etc.) cramp their style not a little bit. Usually the first cast is finished in about three weeks time — then a new cast is obtained. The final cast is a group of the weak and willing. They ' re weak from re- hearsals but willing to go on for the sake of " dear old Colton " or the Flag or to uphold the Traditions of the Mounted Police or something — to make the 2.1st production a success. The " Girls " usually come from Plebe ranks. When one considers what four years of three times a day in the mess hall does to a man, it is not a matter of wonder that the feminine parts are restricted to those of the frosh whose youthful form and voice permit. But even then you might hear Collis saying: " Ye Gods, mister, did you ever see a woman walk like that. You ' re not Gertie the Gas House Goil; vou ' re Gloria Stockbond, the heiress. Look proud and pampered. " Mrs. W. D. Brereton lends a helping hand with the girls, however, and soon the feminine touch is recognizable. There ' s always that foot proposition with the women, too— it ' s like trying to coax a Mack Truck into a garage built for a Ford. Prof. Royal S. Pease of the English Department directs the plays in general, and his experi- ence and directorial ability draw remarks from those who are critical — " You always produce such a finished play. " There ' s nothing that smacks of the amateurish.

" The difficult character of Herbert was aptly portrayed by Gentrv, K.M., ' 30. It was a characterization which demanded much study. Guilbert was perhaps the most polished actor of the cast. Giles, ' 31, was his partner in crime as " Polly. " Mrs. Blaine was typical of the garrulous dowager who lurks in the wilds of Rye. (The place, not the beverage.) Duffy, ' 2.9, played a mean Fanshaw. " Come to think about it, you re- semble the description yourself, " he said to Tony Slade, alias Tracy Sutton, who was none other than " Post Grad " Ted Martin. Chub Pierce would have made a typical butler with- out the use of make-up or livery — but who could expect an ordinarv butler to find a rhyme for " oranges. " White, C.T., was one of Fanshaw ' s myrmidons. The other women of the play, characterized by Nelson, ' 31, Morris, ' 31, and Steele, ' 31 acted in a manner to deserve commendation. L. P. Carver, ' 2.9, was a self satisfied banker, father of Herbert. The play, " Not Herbert, " is executed in a rather light vein. True, there are serious moments — what could be more serious than a scion of the Alden family facing a long prison sentence. It happened that there was a series of baffling robberies around Grayson. The robber, nicknamed the " Corporal, " stole only jewels from the safes of the paneled drawing rooms of the rich. There was no violence, only a methodic entry at night; educated fingers opened the panel and safe; headlines in the morning papers again aroused the ire of the detective agencies. Herbert Alden was not an ordinary poet. He was afraid of the night, yet its beauty fascinated him. When he roamed in the night, and brought back souvenirs of his wanderings the legend of the " Corpo- ral " was concocted by the detectives. Alden didn ' t steal things in the ordinary sense of the word. He thought there would be much romance in replacing the jewels as in taking them. The jewels were not dis- posed of, but were kept in his apartment away from the prying eyes of his confederates— three in number. J. Leon Collis Director I ' You knew it would happen!

The association was beneficial, moreover, because he discovered that the suave person who courted his sister was none other than a society crook late of Leavenworth. Alden gives Sutton, the society crook, a chance to leave the premises and return certain stolen articles, but Sutton stands his ground. Sutton is forced to leave, however, and leaves a note for the detectives revealing the identity of the Corporal. The detectives followed Alden to his private apartment and discover his hoard of jewels. Herbert ' s father and fiancee arrive in time to plead for him, to no avail.

When the vase was moved the lights in the apartment blinked out, and in the confusion Alden escaped with the detectives in pursuit. As soon as the detectives disappeared Alden reappeared through a sliding panel in the fire place and gave a note to his fiancee— a poem which meant that he would wait for her in a certain villa by the sea. The cast alone cannot make the play a success. Lieut. Townsend ' s lighting effects on Mr. Shilling ' s scenes heighten the realism so the players do not appear to be barking lines at blank walls. There are many other friends, too, without whose assistance the Masqueraders could not have hoped to even have attempted a show and to whom the organization extends its heartfelt thanks.

In his day, one of his stage gang used to bring out a placard labelled, " The courtyard, " and the crowd would howl with glee for the ancients used to have plenty of imagination. Then his juice gang would light a candle to denote brilliant lighting, and when the shades of night fell, the candle was snuffed. Nowadays, if we tried anything like that on the average midshipman, we would have a crowd- ed auditorium — Not! And the stage over at Mahan Hall isn ' t so handsome when it ' s devoid of scenery. To prevent this from happening is the job of the boys in white works behind the scenes. Matt Radom and his cohorts juggle the flats and the drops and now and then one of his jugglers, perchance out of training, has the disconcerting habit of dropping a sash weight on the cast, blissfully ignorant of their danger until a hoarse voice yells, " Hey, stand from under below! " It doesn ' t take so many minutes to change from an English homestead to the deck of an old time sailing ship anchored off a tropical island in the South Seas. The artist, Mr. Shilling, is an ardent mem- ber of the gang and looks forward eagerly to his annual trips to Annapolis to see his creations enjoyed by the Regiment. It takes a lot of co-operation to set that scenery and still not keep the audience wait- ing impatiently. There are also the very necessary props and Dick Belden is the head man in that show. The instant that the velvet drops, a dozen men have stripped the boards of their finery. A few minutes later, the curtain goes up smartly and many a time the audience has gasped with sheer appreciation of the beauty of the scene. But if there were no sun, many of the earth ' s wonder spots would never have been discovered. All scenery requires efficient lighting effects. Page the Juice Gang. This assorted collection of embryo Steinmetzs are led by Van Meter, none other. And the places he leads them! To the top of Smoke Hall for a snappy football sign to cheer the hard working men as they trot back to the Gym after a tough scrimmage, or dangling from the clock tower to put up a Broadway sign for the Navy Relief, Masquer- aders, or Musical Club shows. Then back stage to produce those marvelous lighting effects that put the finishing touches on the scenery. And remember the dazzling, dancing lights at the Ring Dance — the Juice Gang ' s work. Much more could be said about this accomplished gang but it may be shocking so we ' ll throw the switch.

Few people, perhaps, experience one of life ' s most embarrassing moments — that which befalls an usher when he asks some young girl to " Come this way, please " — he walks with dignity and quietness to a vacant pew on the center aisle and faces about, only to find a sea of faces giving him the once over, while his fair church goer has complacently seated herself under the left balcony. Much might be said of this popular side of the chapel, where the drags insist on being seated, where they may be seen and heard, but it suffices to say that they don ' t always get there. To nine of us, standing there in the vestibule, as Calhoun opens the great bronze do ors on the solemn hush of Chapel, it seems a stupendous task to seat the crowd standing outside. But pause a moment! the distant notes of bugles, a ruffle of drums, and all heads turn toward the Mexican Monument, as the Regiment, in long lines of blue, marches up. In this short period much speculation as to who ' s who and whv, among those down on the sidewalk, occurs amidst the group of white gloves and sword belts in the doorway. The Regiment is in, the Admiral and the Commandant are seated, and then the task begins. All three doors are jammed with congregation who wait patiently for one of the nine to seat them — well down front — in assigned pews — three rows from the back — next to a dear son or nephew — behind Mac or Billy or Tommv — up in the balcony by the organ. As the " Te Deum " is ended, the seemingly hopeless task is complete and everyone appears satisfied. The stragglers come in in two ' s and three ' s and the cycle is repeated. Then Sunday School assembles en masse on the steps outside — between the watchman and the ushers peace and quiet is maintained outside. " Eternal Father Strong to Save, " concludes the service and in a few moments the congregation is dissolved in groups about the Yard — the great doors close and all is sacredly hushed once more. And so it is, each Sunday of the year, that the ushers do their share of the duty assigned — a duty which is a pleasure in itself. a WER 187 Some of us have found diversion in the organiza- tions fust shown, while others have turned to ... .

Such an end to commerce was not to be. for merchant ships still churned their way across the oceans, this time under the watchful eyes of the terriers of the sea. mmi Foreword L N presenting the history of the athletic victories and defeats of this, our last year at the Naval Academy, we wish to emphasize neither one or the other. Both have their place in developing that sense of sports- manship and fair play which is so necessary in a good officer. It is the purpose to preserve here those things to which we shall point with pride in later years. Down through the centuries has come to us the heritage of fearless fighting blood, the traditions of the Old Navy. Our teams have upheld these glorious traditions of the sea, and in so doing have inspired every man in the regiment to a higher ideal of service. To that intangible but very real thing known as " Navy Spirit, " we dedicate this Book of Athletics.

When the regiment returned from September leave, strange rumors filled the air — tales of a man with a new and indomitable spirit, spreading wide his doctrine of the " Will to Win. " The Plebe class had accom- plished wonders during the summer, and were enthusiastic, eager to cooperate with the rest of the regiment in bringing the Cadets to terms. Whence this new spirit? We were not long in learning. The academic year was only a day old when the entire regiment held a big snake dance. We then adjourned to the Gym, and it was there that we met that dynamic force, Jonas Ingram, and heard about the " Will to Win. " When he finished, he asked, " Have you got it? " The regiment roared assent. He said, " I don ' t think you have —yet. " Captain Gannon arose and accepted that challenge on behalf of the regiment. The meeting dispersed, but something new had crept into our hearts. Some of the fierce fighting blood of the man who was to mean so much to the Academy had been transfused into us. From that time on new and strange things began to happen. A wave of overwhelming enthusiasm swept the regiment and all those connected with it, and in that wave was born that intangible thing of which Jonas had spoken. The story of that year is the story of a meteoric rise, the success of the football team being equalled only by the growth of spirit in the school. With Bill Ingram at the helm of the team, and with Jonas managing that well knit cooperation between team and school spirit which is so essential to success, the Navy rose to heights hitherto unknown. The " Will to Win? " We had it! Since that time, although we have met the inevitable reverses along with our successes, the same spirit has persevered . The Acade- my has been a better place in which to live, and every man has profited by his contact with Jonas Ingram, the man. 1. 1 TrTTTrTTTTTTTTT I — The Nineteen Twenty-Eight Olympic Games HE IXth Olympiad will be held in Amsterdam this summer, and the Navy Depart- ment has co-operated splendidly with the younger officers in the fleet by allowing many of them to return to the Naval Academy for preliminary training in preparation for the Olympic tryouts.

The great team of the previous season had written high the name of National Champions and had made a new chapter in football history. Twelve of the eighteen men who had played in that memorable Army Game in Chicago and a corresponding number from the rest of the squad had been lost bv graduation. Thus, with a green squad, centered around a small nucleus of veterans, Captain Ned Hannegan and the Ingram Brothers set out to make a football team. During that great drive of 192.6, victory in such a degree, had been new and sweet to us. Now victory was expected, and the team knew it. They bore on their shield the title, National Champions. This was their heritage to uphold, and the resulting pressure on a green team was an important factor for consideration. One great thing we had in our favor, and that was the coaching staff, which returned to us practi- cally intact in Jonas and Bill Ingram, Rip Miller, and Johnny Beckett we had the best coaching staff in the country. In addition several men of the 192.6 championship squad were back, including " Tommy " Hamilton, " Ben " Born, Howard Caldwell, " Johnny " Cross, Jack Horner and Maurice Goudge. That this staff moulded from the green material at hand, a team that inspired fear and won the re- spect of all comers is now a matter of history. Davis and Elkins, Drake, Notre Dame, Duke, Pennsyl- vania, West Virginia, Wesleyan, Michigan, Loyola and Army all felt the sting of Navy, and although we were not always victorious, Jonas ' " Will to Win " was there every moment, and every man in the regiment was proud of his team.

The West Virginia mountaineers came down, a veteran team, but the ' excessive heat and the brilliant Navy play were too much for them. The thermometer hung around 90, and made a great difference in the performance of both teams. The first quarter found the visitors fresh and at their best. They repelled the one dangerous Navy drive of the period on the eighteen yard line. Failing at the line, Navy tried the ends and the air with greater success. Whitey Lloyd accounted for our first touchdown almost single-handed. He first inter- cepted Captain Bowles ' pass and ran thirty-five yards to their forty yard line. Next he passed to Smith for fifteen more, and on the following play, carried the ball around right end for a touchdown. On the way Whitey shook off no less than six tacklers. Once underway, Navy steamed ahead. The next touchdown came as the result of three more well executed plays. Miller passed to Coffman for fifteen yards. Ransford faked a forward and cut around end for ten more. Then Miller passed again, this time to Ransford, who, with good interference, carried the ball the remaining twenty yards to the goal line. The third period was nip-and-tuck until the latter part when a sustained aerial attack culminated in a pass, Bauer to Millican, who took it over the last fifteen yards for the third touchdown. Navy had possession of the ball most of the fourth quarter, but frequent penalties annulled all scoring oppor- tunities until Spring ran around right end behind perfect interference for thirty yards and a touchdown. At this point Millican pulled a surprise by passing to Joe Clifton for the extra point, making the final score 2.7-0, rather an auspicious beginning for a green team.

The game, played in mud and rain, started off with a bang. Drake forced her way to the three-yard line, only to have Barnes and Cook stopped three times in a row. The attempted drop kick was partially blocked, and Whitey took it to our own twenty-five yard line before he was downed. From there, an advantageous ex- change of punts and a pass, Bauer to Lloyd, netted the first touchdown. Llovd made another touchdown in the third quarter, and Clifton, Schuber, and Spring each added one. Captain Ned plaved a bang-up game at quarter. Ted Sloane, play- ing at end against his former alma mater, saw to it that nothing went by him, while Eddie Burke was much in evidence behind the visitors ' line where he mussed their plays before they started. , , 11 y i i .i i. 1 . . .

On that day the regiment journeyed to Baltimore to see their potentially powerful but green team go down in defeat before the green-clad hordes of Notre Dame, 19-6. The Irishmen were unquestionably more advanced in all departments, excepting the overhead where Navy outgained them two to one, but the score at the end of the half was: Navy 6, Notre Dame o, and might have remained there but for one break which tied the score. Navy made her touchdown bv a fierce drive against Rockne ' s second string in the first period. Taking the ball at midfield, a forward pass, a smashing run by Rans- ford, and a double pass, Ransford to Spring, carried the ball across. Navy valiantly defended her quickly gained advantage, and if two periods made a football game in- stead of four, it would have been Navy ' s day, fairly earned, and richlv deserved. When Walsh evened the score in the third period by scooping up a blocked kick for a touchdown, and our team saw its hard won advantage wiped out in an in- stant, it began to crack under the strain, and in the remaining period of plav, Rockne ' s horde crossed the last white marker twice.

Duke AFTER a week of readjustment we met Duke. The - - team from the South set off from the start to wipe Navy off the map, and it looked at first as if they might do it. Receiving the first kick off on their own thirty yard line, they carried the ball over for a touchdown in five plays with a passing, slashing attack. This, however, was not to endure for long. On the first play after the next kick off Joe Clifton romped over Duke ' s left tackle for sixty yards. On his second attempt Whitev carried the ba ll around left end for the first Navy touchdown. The rest of the half was largely Clifton and Lloyd, Whitey putting the ball in position, and Joe lugging it over. The score at halftime was 19-6. In the second and third quarters Duke showed a fine running and double passing game, and held her own. In the final quarter Sloane intercepted one of Buie ' s passes, and a pass, Coffman to Lloyd, netted a touchdown in quick order. The final touchdown came when Parrish intercepted another pass in enemy territory, and the scoring play was what Eill called the most perfectly- executed play of the year. The final score was 32.-6. JLi That crushing Navy attack gets under ua 2.98 The pass that spelled touchdown in the Venn game University of Pennsylvania THE shadows were lengthening across Franklin Field where seventy-five thousand people sat, tensely watching the Navy Blue and Gold battle the Red and Blue of Pennsylvania. Two periods had passed since Fol- well Scull had picked up a Navy fumble and run for a touchdown. For two periods the score had remained deadlocked at 6-6, and the game was fast drawing to its close. The Navy quarterback barked signals. The ball was snapped. A Navy end-run was underway. The figure carrying the ball ran wide, leaving his interference, swerved back, paused, and threw the ball. That figure was Art Spring. The ball spun through the air. Far down the field eight eager hands reached desperately for it. It touched finger tips, balanced there, and settled into the arms of Joe Bauer, who left all pursuers and carried it half the length of the gridiron for a touchdown. Thus Na vy broke the tie and won the game with a single perfectly executed play. Navy scored first after a sixty-nine yard march had placed the ball in position for Miller ' s pass to Lloyd. Clifton and Lloyd bore the brunt of the attack, while Ted Sloane, acting as captain, and " Stuff " Wood starred in the line.

West Virginia Wesley an NAVY followed up her triumph over Perm with an- other over Wesleyan a week later. The scoring was confined to the first and third quarters and most of the play was straight football. The second string fought it out with the mountaineers all during the first half with- out an advantage to either side, excepting at one time when Shag Ransford caught a punt on the forty-one yard line, and, with good interference and clever side- stepping, ran down the side line and over the goal. Rodriguez, punting for the visitors, averaged about fif- teen vards better than the Navy ' s attempts, but the superiority of the Navy backs and line was enough to make up this loss and a little more. The Varsity took the field at the beginning of the second half, and hung up three touchdowns in short order. Clifton made two of these, and Lloyd to Smith over the goal line produced the other. Whitey broke away for several long runs, and Joe Clifton showed what he could do in the plunging line by lugging the ball eleven times in succession for a total gain of forty-five yards and a touchdown. Captain Hannegan, who had been out with injuries since the Notre Dame game, went in for Miller in third quarter. 3 S 1 4 West Virginia Wesleyan smothered Tr m TT M tJTT n T M f H ' M ' T ' T M TITy g ggj Qa I FROM KNOWLEDGE-SEA POWER 300 t ill ' M I HHIMH II H I IHH I HIH II a | hX tnrrriT»nT n» ri ■TTTTTVrrT M T H TrTT m 1 ;; the Wolverine s lair University of Michigan THIS was a game replete with thrills. When two good teams meet, one must lose. On this day, Navy out- gained Michigan in actual yardage, but she showed the greenness of her combination when she blew up in the tight places, and failed to take full advantage of her op- portunities. The Yostmen, on the other hand, were foot- ball wise. Therein lies the story. Before we knew the game had started, Michigan had scored two touchdowns and kicked both goals. A bad punt, two penalties, and a fumble contributed to this, but not so much as did the suddenness and deceptiveness of the Wolverine running attack. Not to be outdone, Whit- ey took the ball on the first play after the next kickoff, slanted off right tackle, cut back, and ran through the entire Michigan defense for seventy-five yards and a touchdown, thus contributing the outstanding feature of the day. The second half started much the same as the first with Michigan scoring two more touchdowns in short order by fast deceptive play.

They tried hard and fought stubbornly, but could not stop the big blue machine as it thundered down the homestretch of the season to a 33-6 victory. After receiving the kick-off, Loyola lost no time in scoring on the varsity. It took them just six plays, namely passes, to turn the trick. This served to arouse the Navy team to action, and both Clifton and Lloyd scored in short order. On one of these, Whitey took Ned Hannegan ' s pass and ran to the goal with the entire team clearing the way. Soon afterwards Smith intercepted a pass and carried it to the four yard line. Here Whitey took charge and in one more play the ball rested on the other side of the broad chalk line. During the second half the offensive led by Bauer, Miller and Coffman registered twice after sus- tained drives, to make the final score 33-6. It was during this half that Clovis, the snorting little Texan, more than covered himself with glory. Ripping yards off around either end or through the line, he toted the ball great distances down the field. The revised backfield for the Army game, with Lloyd and Ransford at the wings, Clifton at full and " Skippie " Hannegan in the quarter billet, worked smoothly and gave promise of great power, while the work of the line from end to end was excellent. In spite of Army ' s impressive record, we all had high hopes for a victory in the great finale of Twenty-Eight ' s football history. If ffl Bags helps Ned to gain yards 302.

Before the gridiron stars had turned in their gear and had reported for basketball, Coach Johnny Wilson and Captain Bill Howard had already formed a well-balanced team. Johnny Wilson, ably assisted by Ensign Craig, star forward of the 1916 team, began work on his system of using two quintets, one almost as good as the other, employing all the strength of the squad. Due to injuries later in the season this system had to be abandoned. Never- theless every man knew his position and any combination put on the floor to represent Navy was there with all the fight and teamwork necessary for victory over any team. The team was so highly developed that no man could be picked out as a star. There were many clever plays and shots executed during the season by every player on the squad. It was a team with a determination and a desire to win, well- schooled in plays and fundamentals of the game. It was that grim determination to win that swamped the Army. Never during that game was Army able to obtain the lead. Bill Howard was a leader and a captain any team could well be proud of. He was calm and always in the game fighting with all his might. He could always be relied upon to drop in a few of those long, arched shots through the loop, the kind that thrill you as they swish through the net. The entire squad demonstrated a fight that was characteristic of a Navy team. Over a trying and successful season the coaching staff led the team to a fitting climax, a victory over Army.

Two sensational shots by Lincoln and Lloyd in the last two minutes of play took the game. Neither team showed any exceptional form, but this was due to the fact that it was their first public appearance of the year. Lafayette took one but only after a closely contested game with a final score of 2.9-2.7. The team s aspirations toward an un- defeated season were nipped in the bud, so to speak. Nevertheless the boys were out for blood the next game when they downed William and Mary to the tune of 48-10. The " shock-troop " system was resorted to and the final score proved its effectiveness. In the following game the boys again repeated and trounced Washington and Lee, 38-2.6, in a fast game. In a sensational game featuring almost perfect passing and replete with backhand shots, the varsity humbled the visitors from George Washington U. by a 53-33 score. Many new faces were seen on the floor to represent Navy. Penn was the second visiting team to give us a setback. The final score was 2.6-2.5 ' n f avor of our visitors. The feature of the game was the close guarding of both teams. E 3S 2£ TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT i 3°5 TtrTTTTrrTT ' Tn»TT1WT ' TTr m H M H»rTTTr»rT i ' " TT r tTTttff» rrr» n ti« n ?

It took the team forty minutes of hard playing to defeat the Rutgers five in one of the roughest games of the season. Football tactics were quite frequent. The final score of 40-38 was in favor of the home troops and that is what counts. The Kentucky Colonels gave the Blue and Gold a fierce battle before finally accepting the short end of a 31-16 score. The fast and flashy Rebels piled up an early lead but the home-troops hit their stride in the second half and forged into the lead and took the game. Loyola came down to the Armory with a veteran team set to wipe up the map. The home boys tripped them up in their attempt but the game went into an extra period. In the last minute of play our own Smitty dropped a pretty one to tie the score. Carmichael entered the game in the extra period, a " dark-horse " as it were, and with two spectacular backhanded shots put the game on ice for Navy with a 43-3 S score. ■J W bitty tries a lon one 306 ' » » | MM HT»TW TTrTTTTT« m T W TT M T W TT»-- J I ' ii TT ' inH iimi i " 1li i i i n ll The Navy attack gets underway Delaware, Pennsylvania, Dicki nso n, Ma ryla nd IN the next two games the basketeers broke even.

The contest with Maryland was a bitter one starting with both teams plaving an excellent defensive game so that neither team could penetrate the other ' s defense. A long-range shooting barrage was resorted to with Miller and Llovd upholding Navy ' s honor. The game was one of the roughest of the season both teams reverting to the savage man-for-man play.

In the game with Georgetown the boys went down to a fighting defeat. The score was 49-40. Miller was by far the outstanding star of both teams, making some of the most sensational shots seen on the court this year for a total of sixteen points. In the last game before the Army tilt, and the last home game of the season, the Blue and Gold Basketeers crashed through with a 45-37 victory over Gettysburg College.

" That seemed to be the general feeling all over the hall on the day after that memorable basketball game. The Big Chief, namely Albert Bender, formerly one of Cornelius McGillicudy ' s mainstays on that great Philadelphia baseball team of thirteen years ago, arrived in town, and the cages were soon broken out and put to use. Everything looked bright for a very successful season. The team had lost but two outfielders and a shortstop, and there were able men from the former frosh along with last year ' s substitutes to fill these gaps. Under Captain Eddie Condra ' s guiding influence the team seemed to be developing a wonderful spirit; but, unfortunately, they were not far advanced in their ball playing owing to the most inclement weather that the city of Annapolis has been privileged to see. After a bad start, in which a few games were lost and more washed out by rain, the boys got together and decided to play baseball. The season as a whole was a success, due in no small measure to the great comeback of the team. Fielding seemed to be the weak point. We had plenty of hitters and three good pitchers, but errors cost us a perfect season. We must take into consideration Hannegan ' s broken ankle and Sullivan ' s broken finger, both coming before the season had started. Hooligan ne-ver did get a chance to show us how that shortstop position should be played, but Sullie managed to come around all right in a couple of weeks. The climax of the season was, of course, the yearly battle with the Point, and victory perched on the long horns of the Navy goat. A reca pitulation shows for the season: Games won— 8; Games lost— 4; Games tied — 1. A § rr P ITT Tun T M " Un i MMMMM T Hm r —SEA POWER 310 ii m fllTtf M W HH T HH Tfn MMH. TCT Richmond -Springfield -Vermont -Lehigh WELL, Admiral Nulton took the lid off the season by throwing out the first ball, and he certainly started something. That Richmond game was a wild and woolly affair. As the Navy was on the short end of a 15-8 score, the less said about the game, the better. The next game with Springfield proved to be a no decision affair, thanks to Peggy O ' Neil. All that Peg did was to hit a home run with two on base and Navy trailing 3-0. The team showed great improve- ment over the first game, and Big Doc Wilson seemed to be getting into shape. He was certainly whip- ping them over. The hitting was very light, with the exception of Peggy ' s clout, and the fielding was rather erratic, but considering the handicaps the gang has faced this Spring, they seemed headed for a very successful season. Rain won the decision in the Yale game before it started. This brought Vermont to the fore on Sat- urday, and also marked Navy ' s initial victory. The Chief divided the pitching assignment between Southpaw George Tuggle and Doc Wilson. Both pitched remarkable ball for this early in the season, holding the Green Mountain Boys to three scattered hits. Peg O ' Neil settled the ball game with a couple of nice hits which sent us into the lead 3-1, never to be headed. The troops followed up their first victory with another over Lehigh, 7-4. Doc Wilson relieved Sleepy Meyers with onlv one man out in the first inning, and then proceeded to fan eleven batsmen and allow but two hits during the remainder of the game. All around the grandstand, though, the same idea seemed to prevail; this is the big boy that should be able to lick the Army this year.

Chauncey, Harvard ' s catcher, was a humdinger. How he could hit, and how he could throw. George Tuggle, our erratic left hander, went in against Fordham, and held them to two hits, but the versatile southpaw managed to walk twelve and hit one during the course of the afternoon. As a result, Navy was on the short end of a 6-1 score.

Now let us say a word about the Chief ' s new right fielder, Eddie Ponvert. Ed has been on the squad ever since he entered our portals, but always as an infielder. Now the Big Injun has made an outfielder extraordinary out of Eddie. Three hits he had, and he is as fast as they make them. This game with Catholic U., the last before the Armv game, certainly left us no doubt as to the winner of that little old fracas next Saturday. Doc pitched beautiful ball, holding the Micks to four scattered hits, and whiffing eight. Ajax Miller at last proved that he can hit by col- lecting a terrific home run.

They set out to avenge the defeat at the hands of the Kaydets the year before, which was pretty hard to take if you remember that we lost that meet by one and one-half points. The team began from the start to work toward N-stars for everyone. It was destined otherwise, however, for after a hectic season of rain and cancelled meets, we were practically " sunk without a trace " in the shadow of the gray walls of West Point. The team had no trouble in salting awav the first two meets of the year, but hardly had the season started when the prospects which had been so bright were dimmed by the loss, through academics or other causes, of almost all of the luminaries of last year ' s promising Plebe team along with one veteran from the Army-beating team of ' 2.5. This was hard lines, for it sapped our spirit. We were swamped by the brilliant teams of Georgetown and Penn State. Navy suffered from a lack of material in the sprints, showing some worth in the distances, and most strength in the field events. Although the season might be called unsuccessful, Navy had a team that gave its best in victory or defeat, and showed fine spirit under the most adverse circumstances. The fine showing of the Plebe team, which set two new Academy and two new Plebe records, along with the inauguration of winter track, augurs well for the future of track at the Naval Academy.

Richmond started out in winning style, easily taking everything on the track until they came to the two-mile run and the ixo-lows. This marked the beginning of Navy ' s rise, Massie winning the former in a pretty race, and Shapley heading Navy ' s clean-up of the latter. Things were reversed, and to even a greater degree on the field. These events were swept clean by the Navy athletes who allowed the visitors only 3 out of the 36 points, a second in the discus. The shotput, hammer, discus, and javelin were won by Warren, Chappel, Captain McGarry, and Zondorak respectively, while the visitors watched their margin dwindle and disappear. Thorpe in the half and the mile, and Hamilton in the 100 and 2.2.0 were the outstanding men for Richmond. The track was in a very soggy condition; therefore times and distances were not up to standard. The pole vault, broad and high jumps had to be omitted because of the condition of the field. The weather up to this time had been anything but conducive to good work on the cinders, and in view of this fact and the early date we were greatly encouraged. Our weakness in the track events was very apparent and became more so with the passage of time, although everything was done to unearth new material and develop that which we already had. All in all, it was a good beginning, and everyone looked forward to the trip up the Hudson with high hopes. cT pE «! l ll ' t lll MIH I IMMIHMMHIimi I FROM KNOWLEDGE— SEA POWER 3 J 7 TfTwr»FT?T MM rf H F W F " f rnmm H T T ' , ' " " m i Hamilton, ' 2.8; captain-elect, a bard worker and a good dash man.

Over with east University of Maryland TWO weeks after the Richmond meet, on the 13rd of April, Captain McGarry piloted his athletes to victory over the University of Maryland to the score of 74-61 . As in the first meet of the year, the track events gave the visitors a large lead, but Navy displayed a decided superiority in field events and turned the tide in favor of the Blue and Gold. Things looked black, as Maryland cleaned-up in the 210 and in the 12.0-highs, but Navy retaliated with a white-washing in the hammer, pole vault, and javelin, won by Chappel, Wyatt and McGarry, respectively. Sheriff and Matthews led the scoring for Maryland with two firsts and a second apiece. For Navy Captain McGarry won the discus and javelin, and took a third in the shotput, while " Doc " Wilson won the shot- put and was placed second in the discus. Massie registered another victory in the two-mile, and Dawson and Bernet copped first places in the broad and high jumps re- spectively.

This was a real test to show what the team could do. Penn State is noted for developing one of the best sets of athletes in the country, and this team was no exception to her rule. The final score was 94-41, Navy garnering all but 2. of her 41 points in the field events. Navy showed pitiful weakness in the track and hurdle events, the visitors taking all three places in all but the 440 and the mile, in both of which we managed to place third. Baits, with firsts in the high jump and broad jump and second in the pole vault, and Bartholomew, with firsts in the 100 and xzo, were the high point scorers for Penn State. " Doc " Wilson starred for Navy with firsts in the shotput and discus. The javelin was the onlv " all Navy " event, Captain McGarrv leading as usual. Jeannes took our only other first place when he won the pole vault. This was a severe jolt, bu t the team did not lose heart. It showed us our weaknesses and bolstered us to more determined efforts.

Although we lost the meet by a large margin, the showing was encouraging as compared to that of the previous week. Again the Blue and Gold led in the field events, but lack of power and speed was fatal on the track. The outstanding star of the meet was Moroney of Georgetown, who took firsts in the javelin and both hurdles, second in the broad jump, and third in thediscus, a total of 19 points. Captain McGarry was high scorer for Navy with a first in the discus, and second in the javelin. Martin and Massey ran a pretty race for the Navy in the two-mile, taking first and second respective- ly, to turn in our only win in the track events. Bernet won the high jump with Foley close behind. Navy made it one, two, three in the hammer with Chappel leading, while the visitors took all in the 440 and no-highs. ; - i5 Start of the 440 ' il ' HHH iii ni i ' i ii i ni i i ' iii i n J FROM KNOWLEDGE— SEA POWER mui TTtHfTITITTI I m TTT1HTT 3 10 wTiiiMimnrii ' iMirmn mtti The Season Begins — N. Y. U.- Cornell ALTHOUGH the lacrosse squad faced the season without the services of Albertson, Craig, Flippin, -ii- Bernet, and many other stars of last year, the prospects for another good season were still bright. The attack, centered around Ike Hull, was speedy and full of pep. The defense, with Captain Bill Wil- liamson as a nucleus, was of the " Stonewall " type. Our last line of defense was ahlv manned by Gazze, who had many times proved his worth in former campaigns. As for Bill Williamson, although not a flashy player, he was in the game every minute. His cool presence could be felt whenever the enemy threatened, and a word from him (if the going was rough) served to settle the entire defense. He led a typical Navy team through a successful season, and closed it in true Navy style on the 2.8th of May. After a few weeks of real hard work, the team was primed for the first game of the season, that with New York University. The cloud burst which ushered in the season did not dampen their spirits in the least. The attack gave N. Y. U. ' s stellar goalkeeper something to think about. Led by Hull, who him- self accounted for seven points, they succeeded in getting the ball by Gold eleven times, while Bill and his cohorts, most ably assisted by Gazze, kept the visitors down to one goal. The Cornell game, next on the schedule, was played in mud, rain, cold, and snow; but even these adverse conditions could not feaze the " Ham and Eggers. " They repeated the feat of the last week, turning in another 11-1 score. Navy ' s usual plan of an extra man down was not necessary, Honsinger, Klakring, and Hull playing a team ' s game by themselves. Doing, at goal for the visitors, left his post too often, and quite a few of Navy ' s points, following some very clever passing, were made with noth- ing to stop them. i E L CTC TTTr : 5 ' Tnumi i ii i i ' Ti ii mtf 1 FROM KNOWLEDGE— SEA POWER.

Although the team was never near defeat, its work was not up to previous efforts. Captain Triplett, playing point for the visitors, displayed a mighty sweet game of lacrosse, and Hull, Honsinger, Klakring, and Brockman, of the Navy, were demonstrating. Maryland took the first point in less than three minutes, and then the boys in blue began to play, the first half ending 3-1 for the Navy. The work of the goaltenders must be praised, Boyer, of the visitors, and Gazze both stop- ping many that looked like sure counters. The next week there was no game, and for the first Saturday during the season, it did not rain. The men went through a long hard scrimmage on Worden Field for the purpose of improving their passing game, which in the game with Maryland was not up to the usual Navv standard. The following game found the team up against something quite different from anything they had ever struck before. Randolph-Macon came up with one purpose in mind, that of keeping Navy ' s score as low as possible. They managed to hold Finlayson ' s warriors to the modest count of seven, but only by massing all available defense men in their goal zone. Against this stubborn resistance Navy was forced to apply all her wiles and skill to score — and she did. The visitors ' lone tally, made by Freeman, was the result of a spurt early in the game. Hull, Klakring, and Lee did the scoring for Navy, Hull bringing his total for the season up to seventeen. ■?! 32-3 H T!» HH I M THI» T m TTTH y C, M lT Mt T»T H tT M Ml ; 3 I Lehigh ' s goal hard -pressed John Hopkins- Lehigh THE scene shifted on the following week-end from Worden Field to Homewood. One of the largest crowds that ever witnessed a lacrosse game gathered at Baltimore to see one good team fall before the onslaught of another. The play during the first half was fast and bitterly contested. Hopkins ' clever defense stopped all Navy ' s attempts to score, and her spectacular attack kept Gazze busy. Time after time the defense withstood sustained attacks on our goal, and sent the ball down to the other end of the field, only to have it returned a few moments later. The half ended 5-2. in favor of Hopkins. Between halves, George gave them the dope, Jonas added the finishing touches, and the Navy came out for the second ' half an inspired team. The Jays scored their last goal a few seconds after play commenced. Then Navy staged one of the most remarkable comebacks ever seen on any athletic field. Our attack pounded and hammered at the Javs ' goal incessantly, and when they lost the ball fought bitterly to regain it, but were thwarted in their attempts by Hopkins ' clever defense, and the game ended 6-5, with Navy still pounding at the gates. The following week the team settled down with a vengeance and hung up a high scoring record for the season, defeating Lehigh 18-1 . Navy ' s attack could not be stopped, and a dozen scores were counted in the first half. During the second half George decided to give the subs a chance. Lehigh ' s only score was the result of some brilliant work and clever passing. Our defense was superb, the ball being immedi- ately sent back to the attack whenever they lost it. The next week-end, although gameless, was not wasted. It was spent in polishing off the rough spots and correcting the mistakes of previous games in preparation for the battle with the Army. imh i ih u Tii H ' iiii m n 1 " i » n -y " . jyTi X Mixing it up at the face off 3M I W :=3 r rjfc ' 2 Massachusetts Institute of Technology QUITE auspiciously the Navy crew inaugu- rated its season by a pair of wins against the Red and Grey of M.I.T. The visitors, who had been training at the Academy for about a week in order to enjoy some of our Southern weather, began to imagine themselves back on the Charles again as race time drew near, for rhe Severn was then being chopped by a stiff northeast wind. The varsity race was the first of the afternoon and after some delay Lieutenant-Commander Greenman, the referee, sent the crews off to a perfect start. Both crews started with a beat of about 40 to the minute but soon dropped it down to a 56. At this stroke Tom Eddy and his cohorts soon proved superior to their op- ponents and had little difficulty in winning by three lengths in 6:41 to M.I.T. ' s 6:53. The Jayvees had little difficulty in matching the performance of the varsity, when they took their opponents into camp by two and a half lengths. With Sears as stroke, they over- came a handicap of a few yards at the start and outstripped the opposing Jayvees with ease in 6:47, making better time rhan the opposing varsity. The " time for the M.I.T. Juniors was 6 157. the Plebes, although not an official entry, turned in the best time of the afternoon, giving people something to think about in the way of Olympic prospects. ■ sznss [wr Oiiw Coach Butler 0 I FROM KNOWLEDGE— SEA POWER 316 W 0 . M Q Pennsylvania MIDST rain and wind, and feeling quite at home, our oarsmen repeated their per- formance of the previous week by humbling a much vaunted and talked of Penn crew. Not only in the Varsity race was the Blue and Red to meet defeat, but in the Jayvee and Plebe races as well, their only consolation being a win in the 150 pound event which provided the chief entertainment of the afternoon. All races were rowed over the Henley distance. Commander Rockwell got the varsity crews off to a fine start considering the adverse condi- tions. Going hard after the sixth stroke, Tom Eddy set the pace at the 40 mark and kept it there for the first minute of the race. With a rhythm and smoothness beautiful to behold, Navv kept going away at every stroke and at the end of the race was five lengths in front. The times were: Navy 6:31; Penn 6:40. The Junior Varsity race proved to be a much closer race between much more evenly matched crews. Rowing under the worst conditions of the afternoon, the Penn Jayvees got off to a lead at the start but were able to hold their advantage for but a small part of the race. Seesawing back and forth in the middle dis- tance, the two crews seemed at a deadlock; but finally our own Jayvee raised the beat to a 40 and left their opponents three lengths be- hind.

Both crews started off at 39 strokes to the minute but soon dropped down to a steady 32.. At this stroke Harvard proved its superiority and went ahead of our own crew. At the half the Crimson led by about half a length. This they held up to a quarter mile from the finish. At this point the wreck- ing crew turned on the gas, and sticking them in at over 40 to the minute nosed out the hard- dying collegians by three-quarters of a length, in 9:45. Harvard ' s time was 9:48. Syracuse OUR last race on the Severn was with Syra- cuse. The weather was no exception on this Saturday, for the Severn was like a mirror with the sun shining. Coach " Jim " Ten Eyck of Syracuse, hard-pressed for material for his crew, owing to excessive losses to his squad, was forced to cancel the Junior varsity race. The varsity event rowed over the lower course of a mile and five sixteenths, proved to be rather an easy race for the Navy varsity, who won by three lengths. For such a small squad, however, the work of Syracuse cannot be praised enough. For the best part of the race they rowed a higher stroke than our own varsity, and were finally beaten. i L) ;o - t Anderson k m — = := MT ' H t mM ' m i T»m »i ' i fr n " r I FROM KNOWLEDGE— SEA POWER| . 3 8 V i -_5 wj H HoERNER J : Henley Regatta T HE 17th of May, Navy sent three well- balanced and determined crews to Phila- delphia to prove our supremacv at the Henley distance of a mile and five-sixteenths. This we readily did by garnering two firsts and a sec- ond from a field of sixteen picked crews, from colleges all over the East. The Plebes started the ball rolling by win- ning their tilt, not without a struggle, how- ever, for Syracuse ' s crack Freshmen aggregation hung on like grim death. In order to win, the Plebes were forced to shatter (bv thirteen sec- onds), the Freshman record for the distance, hung up by Syracuse in 1915. Little, if any, water showed between the two boats at the finish and the other contestants were left well behind, trailing in the following order: Princeton, Columbia, Pennsvlvania. The Junior Varsity race proved to be an upset. Our troops counted on stiff opposition from Princeton and Columbia and an easy win over Penn, whom they had already defeated earlier in the season.

Penn swept over the finish line, winner by a half length. The last race of the afternoon, and a fitting climax to a colorful regatta, was the Varsity race, and what a race it proved to be. The dark horse in this race proved to be Penn. A.C., a rowing club of which little had been heard during the season. They soon proved their prowess by lumping the other five crews at the start and establishing an early lead which they were destined to hold for the greater part of the race. A second place was not to be men- tioned in the category of the Navy varsity, however, and soon the blue tipped blades began to dip the water at a faster clip. Up and up the boat went until finally it reached a 44. Prince- ton was shaken, Penn A.C., was overtaken, nothing could stop the rush of the Blue and Gold. A last minute spurt by the rival crews and Navy swept across the finish line in a blan- ket finish with Penn A.C., three quarters of a length behind, Princeton a half a length behind the Club, and Columbia, Pennsylvania, and Syracuse finishing closely behind in the order named. n s McClure KM inuM § I ' M KNOWLEDGE— SEA POWER 330 M ir i w n ii fUn l ' i 2 KTVW rTW Ponghkeepsie THE day of The Race arrived finally and with it much wind and rough water. Seven crews entered the Varsity race, which was rowed over the four mile course. At the start, Navy jumped to an early lead and was swinging smoothly down the river when the starter called the crews back for another start. This fact seemed to seal our doom, for on the next start, although everyone got off successfully, the swing seemed to have departed from the Navy crew. Up to the two mile mark it was a duel between Washington and Navy for second place, with Columbia a short distance in the lead. From then on, Navy was out of the race. Columbia finished two lengths ahead of Wash- ington, who evened the score by beating Cali- fornia, their Pacific coast rivals, The Golden Bears were followed by Navy, who was trailed by Cornell, Svracuse, and Pennsylvania in the order named. The one shining light in an otherwise dark and despondent day was the splendid victory of the Plebes, attending the Regatta for the first time in the history of the Naval Academy. Rowing like a boatload of veterans and show- ing a wonderful combination of smoothness and power, the newlv-made Youngsters swung down the river at a pace which would have discouraged a majority of the Varsity crews in the Regatta. As the finish line was passed the Plebes became the Inter-collegiate Fresh- men Eight Oared Crew. «i 3 V II M il ' ii i n i m i ' iTi n i n rTnCj - v : ' WER ' ' rf " - V " l n M , " , ' T11 I m i I M 1 1 II 33 1 j S Tr»rffTrnT » Tt M TT»TTT MM i M t ' H ' iir 1 ; Soccer THE season of 192.7 fall sports found the soccer squad hard hit for experienced material. Coach Tom Taylor had a nucleus of four letter men and a handful of men from last year ' s squad to work with. On a Wednesday, October 15th, Western Maryland invaded Worden Field for the opening game of the season. The Green made two scores in short order while the wearers of the Blue and Gold had only made one tallv, but they rushed the Maryland boys off their feet, and when the final whistle blew the score was four to three. The next game found us pitted against the clever team from the University of Pennsylvania. This outfit had held the championship several times and came expecting to take the Navv easily. Red Blackburn and Dickinson on the left side of the line did some stellar offensive playing and each of them accounted for a score in the first half. The fighting spirit of the team was not to be denied, and despite the wind against them, they brought the ball up to Penn ' s half of the field consis- tently and a clever boot by McGlathery put the ball past the enemy goalie. When the sun set on Worden Field, " Happy " had a big grin on his face for his boys had won. Lafayette was the next invader— and first victor. It was a well played game with plenty of fight and good sportsmanship displayed by both teams. The boys from Easton scored twice and though our team fought valiantly to the finish, the odds were too great to overcome. Then came the only trip away, to Lehigh. The team arrived in the little town of Bethlehem to find the Lehigh men all packed in their gym getting all pepped up for their annual big football game with Lafayette.

The game was played in bitter cold, and the Navy attack with Dickinson leading, pounded the Lehigh goal. The brown and white defense was hard pressed but managed to keep our team from scoring. In the second quarter, they tallied twice. The last half found the team fighting desperately to save the game but it couldn ' t be done. Then came the Yale game on Thanksgiving morning. The game brought out a big crowd of rooters and with some hard playing on both sides, but the Yale team was much too clever. They were out to avenge the former defeats that Navy teams had administered to them and went home with the long end of a 5 to 2. score. Every man on the squad was determined to beat Penn State. It was this team that had destroyed Navy ' s chances for the championship the last season. The Navy played over its head, and with won- derful team work delighted the rooters with some beautifully executed plays that netted them three tallies while the Nittany Lions could only garner a single score in the closing minutes of play. The defensive work of Burzy nski and Carlson, coupled with the fast offense of Cole, Walden, and Blackburn, spelled victory. The last game of the season found us up against the hard fighting Swarthmore team. The game was closely contested, but the collegians were not to be denied and won after a hard battle by score of 2.-1. Three men of the team were mentioned for All American honors— Garton and Burzynski on the second team while Blackburn made the third. Dickinson was elected captain, and with this fighting skipper to lead them, Tom Taylor should have a stellar combination in nineteen twenty-eight.

Entering the season with only one full-fledged veteran, Captain Gerin, and with Burke and Ricketts each having three fights under his belt, he brought the team through to the top place in the Intercollegiates, and completed the ninth consecutive year with an undefeated rec- ord in dual meets. The season opened when Perm State brought her team of veterans, Intercollegiate Champions of the previous year, with every intention of defeating Spike Webb ' s unknown team. The best they could get was a draw. Navy getting clean cut victories in three bouts, while Penn State had to go four rounds to get close decisions in both the 135-pound and 160-pound classes. George Moffett, making his debut as a varsity boxer, upset the visitor ' s plans bv decisively defeating Filegar, former 135-pound title holder. Captain Gerin easily won from Robb, and Eddie Burke hammered Steve Bendict, an old school- mate and light-heavyweight title holder to gain an easy three round decision. Chappie ' s hard fought and well earned draw saved the record which a green fighting team with the " Will to Win " had set out to uphold against the veteran Staters. Next week Virginia came with her Southern Conference Champions, and was handed a 4-3 beating, their first in several years. Moffett scored the only knockout by bowling " Ham " Bryan over in the second round. Williams had a tough fight in disposing of the hitherto undefeated Captain Gilmer, while Captain Gerin and Ricketts won in the regulation three rounds. Dowling, substituting for Burke, lost to the tall and lanky Urmston. The team went to Philadelphia to fight Penn, and came back with a 6-1 victory. They showed cham- pionship form in every weight, including Moffett who lost a heart breaker to Captain Levy. Ricketts scored the only knockout, and Renard and Chappie both started their winning streaks. :M!

Every Navy man showed himself a veteran fighter, and the green team that had started the season now heard itself hailed as one of the greatest that had ever represented the Academy in any sport. On the sixteenth and seventeenth of March eight of the best teams in the country met to fight for championship honors in the Penn Palestra. Navy drew all of the tough breaks and was strong enough to win in spite of them. Renard, Williams, and Captain Gerin won the championships in their respective divisions, Burke took second place, and Ricketts third, making a total of nineteen points. This was the scoring, but it was the fighting spirit of the entire team that won. Penn State was second with eighteen points and two individual champions. This made the third Navy Championship out of the last four years, and the first Intercollegiate Boxing Trophy passed into our hands to stay. In winning his inter- collegiate title for the second time, Captain Gerin completed his two years as a welterweight boxer without a defeat. His record shows seventeen straight victories, six of them knockouts. During the season the team won fortv fights, tied one, and lost eleven. The losses were well distributed, every man winning his varsity award. " ' Spike " Webb showed once again that he is the greatest producer of champions in the Intercollegiate ring, and we predict for him and wish him continued success. His is a firm place in the hearts of the regiment, not alone for his work as football trainer and boxing coach, but as the little man with the fighting heart which he imparts to all those who meet him. Too much credit cannot be given to Captain Halsey, who gave of his time and energy as officer representative, or to Jack Charlson, Lt. Kelly, and Richie Collins, who aided " Spike " in putting Navy on top of the boxing heap again.

No Navy team was as hard hit as the grapplers by the gradua- tion of ' 2.7. Coach Schutz started with a green squad, one that he had worked with on the summer cruise and the early fall. Prospects didn ' t look anv too bright and a number of hard teams were on the schedule. But Captain Ashford, the only letter man left, led the way, and soon the loft was filled with hard working wrestlers. The season opened with Duke University, and though Ashford led off with a win, his less experienced teammates could not cope with the college men ' s cleverness and we lost. Next came the squad from Western Maryland and they were no match for the blue and gold grapplers. Coach Schutz ' s men took every bout. The men worked hard in preparation for the next meet as it was with the team that held the Southern Conference Championship. Captain Ashford and his men were not to be deterred, however, and when the men from V.P.I, faced their opponents, they had no easy time of it. The Navy team won handily, purely because they exhibited more fighting spirit and grit rather than expertness. The following Saturday, the intercollegiate championship team was to be our visitor. This time, the Lehigh team showed marked superiority to our men and won the meet.

They journeyed to Yale where the New Haven men were expecting to take them down another notch. But our team had decided differently. It was a hard fought contest with the score swaying from one side of the scale to the other. It was anybody ' s meet until the last bout. The margin of victory was one lone point, the final score being 14-13. The following week, the West Virginia Mountaineers came to Crabtown and didn ' t expect to return defeated. Their hopes were realized, but it was through no fault of the Navy team. It so happened that a good movie was showing in the Yard. The Regiment failed the team miserably, there being the exact number of thirteen midshipmen present to feebly cheer for their team. The team didn ' t lose that day— the Regiment did. Captain Ashford was the outstanding performer during the season. He won from all his opponents except two, these being very close decisions. His victories all came after throwing his opponent for a fall. In the bouts that they wrestled in, Morton, Banister, Weiss, and Wilbourne, showed mighty good form. Meeker and Wilson had some hard men to contend with, and did as well as could have been expected. The season of 192.9 will find the squad well equipped with veterans. But in order to have a champion- ship wrestling team, there must be more than thirteen midshipmen come to cheer for the team that will represent the Regiment.

In the absence of the accustomed few satellites which have heretofore been a nucleus around which to build, Henry constructed a well balanced, tough aggregation, and a hard one to beat. No individual records tumbled in the pool this season, but the team honors have been shared alike by all hands on the squad, the greater portion of first places in every event having been taken by Navy men. We first splashed into C.C.N.Y. on February nth and derived much encouragement from their 44-17 defeat. Columbia made us work hard for our 40-2.2. score as every race was closely contested and they finished strong by winning the relay by scarce an arm ' s length. Syracuse slipped a fast one over on us by saving Margott for the relay which they won and eased out four points better than theNavy squad. It was in this meet that ' Sticks ' Phillips showed us some real swimming by leading last year ' , highest individual scorer, Margott to the wall in the 50. The boys remembering an occasion of last year at Princeton, thought this a good time to make amends so with some of the prettiest exhibitions of fancy swimming they made 2.7-35 l° olc like 39-2.3. Again the relay featured in thrills with the final verdict depending on it. ' Sticks ' touched the wall mere inches ahead of Davison, creeping slowly up from be- hind to do it. People went wild. Dallman, who had been improving rapidly all season, took this oppor- tunity to distinguish himself by surpassing Huff in the fancy dives, thereby winning a much needed first. Wednesday afternoon we took Penn for a workou t, sharpening our claws for Dartmouth the follow- ing Saturday. We found the Green a determined crowd and hard to beat. Their scoring ace, Bryant, high scorer in the League this year, was forced to swim the best time for the 50 and 100 made in the pool this § I IB TTnTTTTTTTTTTmTTTfC y 1 KNOWLEDGE— SEA POWER 338 7v i ; y ff " ' T ▼ " T ' 1 M ' l " ' !

Dallman distinguished himself again by taking the dive with some superb 1.1 ' s. O ' Bierne who had become a consistent winner of firsts in the 440 showed the way in that event with Jimmy Woodruff furnishing the excitement by outreaching Birnie of Dartmouth for second. Ray Crist and Phip Wakeman had another little race all their own to decide a personal argument which lasted all season and which Captain " Phip " finally settled at Yale. The teams last appearance before its Navy supporters was entirely gratifying. The excitement hunter ' s wildest dreams were realized. The scoreboard cut up like a Wall Street bulletin. At New Haven the boys met a bunch of champions. Even our best was not enough. Yale seemed to hold an option of First and Second places and allowed us only two of the latter. The Eli ' s demonstrated their right to the title of Champions of the Intercollegiate Swimming Association. In the final analysis of the season we find that we are second to the great Yale team. Our best individu- al performer, Sticks Phillips, standing second in individual scoring. Thus we can consider the season a wonderful success.

With only three men back from last year ' s squad who had ever had any experience at all, Coach Foster was forced to build his team up from last year ' s Plebe squad. However, after six weeks of intensive training the team looked as good as any veteran combination and prospects for a banner season were bright. The first game was with the New York Athletic Club which is composed of ex-college stars. Against them Navy made a very creditable showing and came out of the game with a 47-17 defeat but with much valuable experience. City College, Columbia and Syracuse were downed in the order named and without difficulty. Princeton was our next opponent. The Tigers came with a veteran team determined to average last year ' s defeat. But, with every one playing a tip-top game, Navy came out with a Z8-5 victory. The following week Penn was defeated by the record score of 96-5. As the number of substitutions were limited, the first team played throughout and the game finally turned out to be a contest to see who could score the most goals. Dartmouth was our next victim. In this game, Coach Foster gave every one on the squad a chance to play, and, as a result, 2.0 Navy men ran up a score of 48 points to Dartmouth ' s 3. With the Dartmouth game over we found ourselves tied with Yale for the Intercollegiate champion- ship with the deciding game to be played at New Haven. The contest was a thriller from start to finish dlSPr " " " % (r k A B t BB ' a V1U j £. lip J j B 1 Br ]ri 1 i ' j 1 1 1 1 TTMIMTTT1TTTTTTT — . — iTTTtmr MMi f 340 ' ■mH II H I ' 1 ll | |lll l l ' " MIH iit with both teams fighting every minute. Navy drew first blood but a moment later Yale evened the count. Then the lead see-sawed back and forth, one team holding lead only to have it suddenly snatched awav. The final score showed Yale with 47 points to Navy ' s 42.. Too much credit cannot be given to Coach Foster who built up such a strong team from such a dis- couraging start. Captain Aichel was bv far the star of the team. With two year ' s experience on the varsity in back of him, he carried the brunt of the defense. Johnson and Dexter, substitutes from last year, and Gragg, from last year ' s Plebe team, with Aichel made up the backs. They worked very well together and kept Navy ' s opponents scores down to 60 points in all. On the forward line Searles was the only regular from last year. Due to some trouble with the Execu- tive department he was unable to join the squad until after the City College game. But, by the time the Princeton game came he was in top form and the Yale game found him playing the best game of his career. Twohy, playing his first year on the varsity was the scrappiest man on the team and with Searles was the star of the Yale game. Ruddy and O ' Bierne, both from last year ' s Plebe team completed the for- ward line. Both were fast swimmers and could always be depended upon to score. Ruddy standing third in the League scoring and O ' Bierne close behind. Much credit is also due to the remainder of the squad who helped put the varsity in shape and who took their duckings night after night. There were thirty men in the squad throughout the season, the largest squad in the history of Water Polo at the Naval Academy and with such a squad Navy ' s Water Polo teams in the future will be able to uphold the fine record of this year. I a w -15 34 1 TTrTTTTTTTTTTTtT gj £ £ MHMHnrHn r ff »wT f t» ' i TTii ' M r »n r w ' Fencing B EGINNING early in the fall, the echoes of the Fencing loft again rang with the clash of steel upon steel, and the fencing season of 1917-192.8 was underway. In spite of the fact that there re- gained but one veteran of the past year " s team— Captain Wait of the foil team— the large squad which mustered for the first fall practice showed great promise. The first meet was with Syracuse on February 4th, and the Navy team started the season right by defeating the Orange and Black swordsmen by a score of 13 to 4. The next week found the fencers up against a hard team. This time it was New York University, and the men from the big metropolis were out to " take " the Navy. The night of the Gvmkhana found the Navy team crossing swords with the Princeton team. The Tigers had to be content with the small end of an 1 1-6 score. The following week, the experienced team of the J. Sanford Saltus Club of New York City succeeded in denting a perfect record by winning 9 to 8 and seven days later, the Yale team took advantage of the break by again taking the match, this time by score of 10 to 7. The team was now determined to stop these losses and after a strenuous week of practice showed good form and defeated Dartmouth 8 to 5 . This was the final meet before the semi-finals. The excellent skill of MacFarlane on the epee team, who lost only one bout during the entire season, contributed greatly to the success of the team. Howard on the foil team deserves special commendation 1 FROM KNOWLEDGE— SEA POWER 342- s = for his diligent work and successful bouts. The foil team consisting of Wait, Howard, Grant and Allen, did exceptionally fine work during the season. Eller and Loomis of the Sabre team, and MacFarlane and Wetson of the epee team proved that a fighting spirit coupled with a master ' s skill, knew no obstacles. The loss of Heinlien was regrettable. He participated in several bouts at the end of the season after returning from the hospital. Little has ever been said of those men who worked faithfully during the season and contributed quite a lot to the success of the team. Without such men as Rogers, Cone, Wilbur, Gluntz, and Coates, the smoothness of the varsity might never have been attained. Captain Stewart gave his time cheerfully as officer representative, and " Daddv " Heintz, who for more than 2.5 years has coached Navy swordsmen. This year the team was especially fortunate in having with them two men who have made quite a name for themselves in the world of fencing. Mr. Deladrier came to Annapolis in February of 1917 after winning the championship of Belgium and Holland in the foils and epee, and received the Maitre d ' Armes by diploma from the Belgian government. Mr. Pirotte, the other member of the coaching staff comes to us with a very enviable record with championships of Belgium and Holland in foils and sabre. He has the unusual distinction of having once been professor of physical education at the Institute Mili- taire in Belgium. The team has been very grateful to Professor Fournon of the Department of Modertment of Modern Languages for his help at different times during the season; he may rest assured that as long as fencing is a sport at the Naval Academy, he will always be welcome in the loft. § V ' .-i TrTTTTIT m TT m TlFTTnTT § I FROM KNOWLEDGE— SEA POWER | 343 ■rTTTT ' rnfTTlM! MimmTii TTTTTTTTTTTTTT ' The Gym Season of 1928 BEFORE the season started, the general impression was that the prospects for 1918 were anything but good. Graduation left us stranded, with hut four veterans from last year. Among these the only one possessing an N being Adamson, ' 2.9. He thus achieved the honor of being elected captain his Second Class year. To fill the shoes of men like Newhart, Zitzewitz, Waterman, Harnly, Levin, all of them first place men in five different forms of apparatus, Coach Mang had to look to the former Plebe team. He has never before started a season with so inexperienced a crew. For this reason the squad should be given a great deal of credit for the way they have come through. Coach Louis H. Mang has been with us now since 1906, and since 1910 has guided the teams through 84 meets, winning 80 of them. Can anvone find a record in any sport at any college equal to this? It takes more than luck to do it, and Mr. Mang certainly has done his part over in " weak squad hall. " An able assistant is Instructor Sazama, who has been here since 1914. Courage, coupled with determination, has been exhibited to the highest degree this year by the gold- breasted " Strongforts. " The gang started bright and early to work. They had plenty of time before the first meet, and were ready on 15 February. This was a triple meet, where Navy was host to M.I.T. and Temple University. Navy came off on top, with 33 points, M.I.T. second with 14, and Temple last with seven. Navy drew first blood when Hughes, ' 30, proved far superior in the horizontal bar, and Captain Adamson took second. Our skipper branched out from the horses and has done remarkably well all season on the bar as well as the horse. i s 4 I FROM KNOWLEDGE— SEA POWER 344 r n r m tTt n r m " HH i M MM T M ffrrnmTrrTTT T , r UnTTTTTTTTrm-rrTn - M fin m r In the side horse, Adamson was head and shoulders above the rest with Thompson, the only member of ' 2.8 on the squad, taking third. Cushing, ' 30, took the parallel bars. Next came the rings where Steiner and Hughes walked away with first and second. The smoothness of M.I. T. gained them their only first place, along with second, in tumbling. Palmer, ' 30, showed promising material by taking third. The meet ended when McElroy and Galbraith, both of ' 2.9, took first and third in the rope climb. In the next meet, we easily disposed of Pennsylvania, 38-16. Hughes, Adamson, Steiner, and Gal- braith were all winners. Thompson showed great improvement, taking second in the horse. On March 17 Dartmouth came down with their best team in years, and one of the best in the east, primed to beat Navy. Navy was also set, and a meet ensued that the teams and spectators will not soon forget . It was the first meet in eleven years to be dropped, but the team has no alibis. The first exhibi- tion was by Zey of Dartmouth. With crippled legs, he climbed the rope, and also won the rings. Dart- mouth won the other events, except the side horse, where Adamson and Thompson showed great skill and the old Navy fight, by taking first and second. Russell of Dartmouth and Galbraith climbed three times to decide the rope, Russell finally winning. The score stood 30-2.4. Next year Navy will probably be back in the Intercollegiate League. With our promising material, Navy ' s team ought soon to be back to their old standard. With Adamson, Galbraith, Steiner, Palmer, Hughes, Cushing, Corey, McElroy, veterans of this year, and the Plebe team, Lockwood, Nelson, Gallaher, Bence, Parker, Raysbrook, and others, prospects for next year are excellent, the only man lost being Thompson. Navy hopes to get a dual meet with Army. The team has a wonderful record of vic- tories and clean sportsmanship to uphold, and we expect great things of them. 1 E 3 riT T TTTTTTTTTT T 545 THE season had its beginning March ist with indoor practice in the Armory. Two weeks later the outdoor courts were in condition for the first real practice. The first meet was only two weeks away; so preparations were hurried to have a team to meet Georgetown. By the end of the week the elimination tournament had begun, and a preliminary line-up of players for the first meet was drawn up. The season was a very good one. Eleven meets were scheduled. Six were won; four were called be- cause of inclement weather; and one was lost. Georgetown was the first victim. Both squads had been a full week on the out-door courts, but our well-balanced squad was not to be denied. The meet ended with a score of 6-0 in our favor. Had George- town brought a six man team, the score would have been even more convincing. Yale came down with its array of stars, but the weather man intervened. If we consider weather as our criterion, the season was a dismal failure; but, fortunately, we do not. A four-man team representing Columbia was sent back to New York with a 4-2. defeat. The Navy had hit a good stride and was determined to keep it. On April 13rd we expected trouble with Lehigh. The dope was good, for most of the matches were drawn out to three long sets. With cease firing our team had the meet with a safe margin. Score: Navy 7, Lehigh 2.. We met the University of Virginia on April 2.6th, and they were ours. The team was moving smooth- ly, and we lost but one match out of the nine played. As Swarthmore was reputed to have a strong line-up, we expected a battle royal, but did not get it. We won all the singles and clinched the meet. A squall, the usual Wednesday weather, prevented the playing of the doubles. Score: 6-0 for Navy. fc I FROM KNOWLEDGE— SEA POWER 546 $ I WT M MM W TfTTlTTT " ITTyTTTrrr ' im f t ' l g IIIIIMIUIIIHIIIIIIU ' II ' UMI IITTTT N = The team had things all planned for V. P.

Pittsburgh came down, a con fident team, and rightly so. They had been proclaimed Mid-western champions. That they might have been, but the meet was a decisive Navy victory. The score: Navy 7, Pittsburgh l. Rain won the decision on Wednesday, and we called off our fourth meet. Came June Week, and with it our last meet of the season. We had visions of all victories and no de- feats, and Pennsylvania alone stood in the way. Their team had the stuff that day. The squad put up a real Navy fight, and it was not until the final doubles had been played that we were ruled the losers by a 5-4 score. A word or two about the players — Captain Snyder showed excellent playing ability along with Bid- die in the doubles competition. Howard, our number one man, gave us tennis exhibitions that are of the finest ever seen at the Academy. The number one singles job is a hard position to hold down, and he has set an enviable record for others to follow. " Jimmy " Farrin proved conclusively that he was capable of holding down his place. He has two more years to go, and, if his improvement in the coming years is as remarkable as that of the past, we have a real number one man in the making. Huff, G. K., never lost a single match this season, and he played in every meet. George is a real go-getter, and he has one more year to play and win for Navy. Young, captain-elect, and McRoberts, the other regulars, do not graduate, and the team may look forward to a strong combination next year. Coach Sturdy is still on Army ' s trail for a meet. Like lacrosse, tennis is a sport in which Army has yet to defeat Navy. If we do get the desired meet, we promise to keep our record clear. § rr nV I FROM KNOWLEDGE— SEA POWER 347 M tTTTTTTTTTTt M TTT ' ill » MM ' | i H ' r HHI " T ' Wi ' » H ' HA fRIDEN ni f tv Rifle THE rifle team was blessed with an abundance of material and with some excellent coaching from Lt. Commander Palmer and Lt. Voegeli, developed into an unbeatable combination. Early in March the boat left the dock each day after drill and didn ' t return until just before formation. This prelimi- nary practice wound up with a practice match with the marines stationed at the rifle range and though the sea soldiers shot well, they couldn ' t excell the Navy team. The season opened with the visit of the D.C. National Guard to our bailiwick. They had a formida- ble line-up including Walter Stokes, a former midshipman, and member of the International Rifle team, and Crockett, an Olympic team member. At the opening ranges, it was close going, but up at the long range, the Navy team fired excellently and increased their slender lead to a well earned victory. Pyne tied with Crockett for high scoring honors. The next meet was an easy victory over the team from Norwich University. The New Englanders were willing but their skill couldn ' t compare with the accuracy of Captain Knowles and his team- mates. Then came the long awaited match with theQuantico Marines. This outfit has always given the Navy team a close match, and are considered our closest rivals in the art of taking the black out of the center of the target. The Leather Necks had a well balanced team and the final score was in doubt almost up to the very last shot. The Marines won the match, but the margin of victory was very slight. The team was not invited to participate in the intercollegiates as we have had the disconcerting habit of always taking first and second place every year. The Regiment used to be represented at the E 3 dl n TTTTTTTTTTTTT 348 t iiii M ii i nii ii i i ni i )iiniinm i i| |i imiii»iiiiii National matches at Camp Perry each year, but the past few years has not seen a Navy team giving the best in the country plenty of opposition. There is a possibility of a midshipmen team going to the match- es in the fall of either 192.8 or 192.9. With " Little David " as the trophy to be defended, the team went up to Peekskill, New York, for a match with the Seventy-first Regiment of New York. This match has been an annual contest for a good many years, with the Navy team having won the trophy the majority of times. The New Yorkers gained a slight lead on the off hand firing, but it was cut down by the accurate firing of the Navy team in the rapid fire stage. At the next rapid fire range, our team again showed its superiority. We had a fairly good lead now, and with the usual consistent shooting of the Navy men at the long range, the meet was well sewed up, and Red Feldmeyer had the pleasant task of bringing ' " Little David ' ' back to Crabtown on the Bav, to again repose tranquilly in his place of honor in Dahlgren Hall. Many of that team has gone out into the Fleet, and Captain-elect McDonald will have remaining with him such men as Quinn, Hood, D ' Avi, White, and others, as well as excellent material from the class of ' 30 to continue to keep the record of the Navy rifle team spotless. Rifle doesn ' t require highly trained athletes to make up its members but the men on the squad have to give many a Saturday and Wednesday liberty, in order to master the art of the trigger squeeze. There is no joy to be derived from pulling targets, but once up on the range it ' s a grand and glorious feeling to see that white circle appear in the black when vou hold ' em and squeeze ' em in. s 1 H ' MW TT HTTU T 349 n m « M T «T nmmMnm Tr m !T M T » HI H T» m ' fT ; FX SCIE XTIA TRIPE NS tj! jj ?S g ' " " " ; Mi ' nimiHiiimnin r MM t ' H TTHTi f: f i The Season in Cross-Country SCARCELY had leave ended when the call for harriers was sent out. In response came Captain Lip- pert and with him numerous veterans of the varsity and Plebe squads. Coach Thomsom, the new cross-country and track coach, formerly of Dartmouth, and holder of the world ' s record in high hur- dles, whipped into shape an octet of road-eaters who gave an excellent account of themselves during the season. Manager Ascherfeld left no stone unturned to assure success. Captain Lippert, one of the hardest working men on the squad, led his men over the hill and dale in the teeth of November winds to obtain that endurance which is so essential to a successful distance team. The first meet with Johns Hopkins University on 5 November resulted in a tight and closely con- tested score. Gwenn, of Hopkins finished in the lead with the time of 19 minutes and 2.2. seconds. The close score of 2.5-30 was adequate proof that every man had the real Navy spirit. The second meet with the University of Virginia proved to be the first victory of the season, the Blue and Gold harriers crashing through for a 2.5-30 victory. In the face of a strong gale, the runners were slowed considerably, the winning time being 19 minutes and 40 seconds. Urquhart finished a close second behind Lippert. The following week found the harriers showing the best form of the season against Georgetown University, defeating them with a perfect score of 2.5-40. Six blue-clad runners crossed the finish line before a Georgetown man did. Captain Lippert led the field with a time of 19 minutes and 34.4 seconds. Commander Farber, Head of the Department of Seamanship, was a constant source of inspiration to the team with his own example of zeal and energy. His warm interest is appreciated by the entire squad. | E : ■- ' .

The opening match was shot during the week of n January in wh ich Navy was defeated by Pitts- burgh 1343-13 14. The following week the National Rifle Association League Matches started with Navy taking on V.M.I, and winning 132.6-1310. Western Maryland and Maryland were taken on next in the order given but Navy suffered a relapse, the scores being 1305-1315 and 1304-13 17 respectively. Mary- land was beaten in the League match, 1341-1301, which evened things up. George Washington then defeated us in the League 13 77-1 3 43 and has remained undefeated the rest of the season. On the 18th of February Georgetown came to the Academy and were beaten 1310-1158, Tolley of Navy making a score of 181 which has remained unbroken for the remainder of the season. Two telegraphic matches were fired the following week and Navy made a clean sweep by defeating Georgetown again 1347-1316 and Drexel 1345-13 10. Last year ' s National Champions were then taken on but the result was Missouri 1389, Navy 1316. V.P.I, was met on Saturday and defeated the second time 13 19-1197. With six matches won and five lost the team lost some of their buck fever and commenced to shoot in earnest. V.P.I, was defeated in the last match in the Eastern League, thereby giving us second place, first place going to George Washington. The latter team came to the Academy for a shoulder to shoul- der match on 10 March and the Navy team gave their best but when the smoke had cleared were trailing by 16 points but having pressed the G.W. team closer than in any match they fired this season. On 17 March Georgetown was defeated for the third time by a score of 1345-1156.

N 2 The Battle of the Ages ONE clear cold morning in late November of the year 192.7 saw special trains rushing from the North and from the South, bearing the Greylegs from their stronghold on the Hudson, and the Navy Blue and Gold from its home on ' the banks of the Severn. Soon there was to be the blare of bands, the stirring sight of marching men, and the most colorful football crowd of the year; all converging towards the Polo Grounds. These things were to come later, but at this early hour everyone was tense — expectant. The titanic Chicago struggle of the previous season had resulted in an unsatisfactory tie. All of the football world now turned to this fray in the East. No man knew what the outcome of the day ' s game would be. That Navy had a good team, none could deny. In spite of reverses at the hands of Notre Dame and Michigan, ' both of these games had been bitterly contested, and the outcome never settled until the final whistle. Navy was a dangerous team. On the other hand, Army had but one defeat on her record, that an early season game with Yale, and had she not trampled underfoot the mighty Notre Dame? Outsiders, little knowing or understanding the forces that had been at work in Annapolis during the last few weeks, were predicting an overwhelming Army victory. They could not comprehend the all conquering power of a spirit which could rise and sweep everything before it. They did not believe it possible. The story of the game is the story of a battle against odds. A great, but comparatively inexperienced, Navy eleven met a veteran polished Army machine, and although outscored, never was a team more glorious in victory than the Navy was in defeat. It was Navy ' s day. Navy spirit featured the game, and the Navy fight and fire outshone the steady brilliance of the Army attack.

" Attention. " We were underway for the Battle of the Ages, a game that would long remain fresh in the memory of every man, woman, and child who witnessed it. Navy entered first, marched along the South side, and company after company swept across the field in company front to the accompanying strains of " Anchor ' s Aweigh, " and the deafening roar of the crowd. Once seated, the songs and yells began. Soon came the Pointers with their short quick step. Around the field they marched, and into the mass formation with which most of us are so familiar. Two yells, and then the formation broke up as they took the stands, and pandemonium broke loose again. Here we were. The test which had so long been awaited was at hand. The next few hours would tell the tale. Navy took the field first, and the Navy stands went wild, while an answering roar from the Army side announced the arrival of their team. Both teams booted and passed the ball around amidst the tensest excitement. Bill met the Army mule, and was properly disdainful. Officials arrived. Cameras ground away. Typewriters and telegraph keys clicked. The stage was set. Everyone was eager for the battle to begin. Everyone fidgeted while the teams retired to the dressing rooms, but this was not for long. Scarcely had we drawn a full breath when both came charging back. The substitutes went to their respective benches, and the twenty-two men who were to do battle lined up on the field. Captains Harry Wilson and Ned Hannegan met in the center of the field and shook hands. For almost the first time of the sea- son, Ned won the toss. He elected to defend the West goal, and Captain Wilson decided to receive. The teams lined up for the kickoff. " All Hands, Up Anchor! " The game was on. No gain there Army!

Y. i8 May, 19x7 A CROWD of twelve thousand spectators assembled in the new concrete stadium saw the Navy ■ defeat the Army by a score of eight to two. It was the first Army-Navy contest ever held in the inclosure. The conditions were ideal for the game, the field was a little soft from the week ' s rain but the sun came out and by game-time everything was in readiness. Navy had a strong attack and excellent pitching. Big Doc Wilson let the Army down with only five hits. His support was of high order. On three occasions the Navy smothered Army ' s chances«to score with fast double plays. The Cadets began the game with Stribling on the mound but he was unsteady and retired in favor of Beauchamp in the fourth. Tom Hamilton led in the offensive drive. He garnered three of the eleven hits. His contributions being a single, a double and a long home run into the left field stands. The latter drive came in the very first inning, Schwab who was given a free ticket trotted in ahead of him. The Navy threatened again in the second, Ponvert ' s double to center and a pass to Miller put two on. Browning ' s defensive work, however, killed off the rally. Caldwell walked to start the third and was out when Condra ' s drive caught him between first and second. Condra stole second and came home on O ' Neill ' s single to left.

Pon vert started activities in the fourth with a single to center and trotted home when Jerry Miller connected for three bases. This finished Stribling and he was relieved in favor of Beauchamp. Caldwell was out on a slow roller to Cobb in the fifth but Condra was undaunted and drove one of Beauchamp ' s offerings to deep center for a triple. Hamilton doubled to right and Condra scored. O ' Neill then hit a hard one to Browning, he fielded the ball perfectly, but in throwing to first tossed the ball into the Army stands; this allowed Hamilton to score. The Army retaliated with one run in their half of the same inning. It all happened when McNamara walked, took second on Wilson ' s wild pitch and scored on successive singles by Carmichael and Beauchamp. In Navy ' s " Lucky Seventh, " Caldwell rolled to third and was safe on Cobb ' s error. He stole second and took third when the Army catcher overthrew the base. The Chief saw another opportunity and called for a squeeze play. Hamilton laid down a perfect bunt and Caldwell scored. Zimmerman greeted Wilson in their half of the seventh with a home run over the center field fence and into the Reservoir. This was a beautiful drive, but it was a signal for the Army to put away their bats; Doc didn ' t give them another hit. Our final run came in the eighth when Sullivan got life on Smother ' s error, and took second on Ponvert ' s sacrifice. He scored on Miller ' s double to right. Army tried to rallv in the eighth when Browning was safe on Sullivan ' s error. Schepp ' s batting for Beynon drove a low fly to Condra and with a quick return he doubled Browning at first.

Y. 2.8 May, 1917 A LARGE assemblage turned out for the track meet, it being the first event of the day. The weather conditions were ideal, the track being a little slow from past rains, but a moderate breeze from the North counteracted the effects of the poor track and aided the runners slightly. The meet opened with the century, in which Gilbreth, the Army ' s star, was just able to nose out Buckley, Navy ' s sprinter. It was close all the way, a few scant inches separating them at the tape. Hall, Army, took third. Time, ten and two-tenths seconds. In the mile, Nichols set a fast pace for the first lap, but the fleet-footed Kaydets outdistanced him, and finished almost hand in hand, taking all three places. Time, four minutes, thirty-one seconds. Five men faced the barrier for the high hurdles. " Beans " Wakefield, after a beautiful start, led until he toppled a timber, losing his stride. This gave an advantage to Army, and they finished one, two, three. Time, sixteen and two-tenths seconds. Johnny Bernet brightened the hearts of the Navy supporters when he broke the high jump record with a leap of six feet, one-half inch. He tried to increase this mark to six, one and one-half, but failed in three attempts. The two mile was next, and for the first half all contestants were bunched together. The gaps wid- ened, however, and at the finish Army took first and second; Martin, Navy, was third. Sprague, the Ail-American tackle, broke the Academy record when he put the shot forty-four feet, ten and one-half inches. Elias, Army, was second, and Zondorak, Navy, third. i JS?

Gilbreth chalked up his second victory of the morning when he won the two-twenty, with Strayer, Army, second, and Hamilton, Navy, third. Time, twenty-two and two-tenths seconds. Tiny Hewett threw the hammer one hundred and forty-five feet, six inches, to establish a new Acade- my record. Paige and Chappell, Navy, finished second and third. Stuart, Army, won the broad jump with a leap of twenty-one feet, ten inches. Dawson and Hetter, Navy, took second and third respectively. The pole vault furnished keen competition between Hutchinson of Army and Jeanes of Navy. Both contestants were in perfect form, and succeeded in clearing the bar at twelve feet three inches for a new Academy record. In the javelin throw Simon set a new record with a heave of one hundred and sixty-three feet, four and one-fourth inches. McGarry closely pressed him for honors but was outdistanced on the last throw. Zondorak, Navy, was third. After a fast quarter mile, Gilbreth breasted the tape a winner, with his team-mate, Walker, second, and Jack, Navy, third. The Cadet captain was the star of the day, taking all three dashes. He has been a consistent performer for the Grey during his four years, and undoubtedly his absence will be felt. Captain McGarrv pressed Jack in the discus throw, but the Cadet managed to come through, taking first when he threw the plate one hundred and thirty-four feet, two and five-eighths inches. Army had their own way in the low hurdles, and took all three places, Piper winning in twenty-five and five-tenths seconds. The half mile concluded the program, and much to our sadness Army again came through with all three places. Lermond won in two minutes, one and six-tenths seconds. The final score was Army 103 .

Y. 2.5 February, 1918 ON Thursday afternoon, February 2.3, a small but determined-looking group of men mustered in the Rotunda, and with the last words of Jonas ' ringing in their ears, filed down the steps and out of the yard. The Navy Basketball Team was on its way to meet the Army mule on his home floor. The Goat dropped anchor at the Commodore over-night and the next morning was on his way up the famous old Hudson. The grev towers of West Point hove into view in the early afternoon and soon after the arrival, Navv was being given a royal welcome by the Cadets. After lunch, some long-suffering Plebes moved out of quarters in South barracks, and the squad moved in. Everything possible was done for the visitors and every mark of consideration was shown to members of the squad. A light workout in the Army gym at four in the afternoon served to put Navy on edge and accustom the players to the somewhat strange playing floor and lighting. Then came a long night of undisturbed rest, and almost before one knew it, the ' appointed time on Saturday afternoon had rolled around. The Navy subs took the floor at two o ' clock, and the way they dropped the ball through the hoop gave warning of the relentless shooting to come. With the gym rapidly filling to capacity, the Varsity- trotted out and was given a hearty cheer by the Corps of Cadets. A thunderous ovation greeted Captain Mills and his crew a few moments later. A small but enthusiastic Navy contingent began to get warm at this time and continued to cheer throughout the game in a manner that warmed a determined team ' s fighting heart.

Captain Howard had sunk a beautv ' from scrimmage, and was coolly dropping in two free throws. Three more points from the foul-line for Navy brought the score to 9-0, with Draper and Wilson missing a number of free throws for Armv. Then Draper eluded Lloyd twice in succession and brought the Cadets back from the depths. After a Navy time-out, Zimmerman counted from the floor and Miller and Howard replied with one apiece. Bill got three more points on free throws, and Draper two, before the half ended. Navy ' s attack and defense were working smoothly and well, while Army ' s play was ragged and inaccurate. Clair Miller counted two from far down court to give Navy the lead at 10-9 at half-time. Army came back with a world of speed and fight at the start of the second half, but the bombardment from close up and far away produced few points. Wilson and Zimmerman missed several times under the basket, and Draper finally broke the ice with a free throw. Zimmerman, on a fine over-hand shot, added two ' points to Army ' s total. Then Thug Walsh, in for Lloyd, tossed in a nice one, followed by a well-timed goal by our reliable, fighting Smitty. With the score 24-12. Draper and Zimmerman connected in quick succession and Navy called a coun- cil of war. The defense tightened up, and although Army laid down a hot barrage no more field goals were scored. Navy made five more points from the foul-line and Army one, with the substitutes in the game, before the final gun barked on a count of 2.9-17. Too much credit cannot be given to Captain Bill Howard as a fighting Navy skipper and a real team leader. He played the game of his life, and with his crew playing smoothly and well, brought back a glorious Navy victory.

The sea- son ' s record for both teams was very creditable, each team having lost one game to Hopkins, and each fully expecting to make that the only defeat of the season. That the battle would be a bitter one had been forecast, and it was all of that and more. At two o ' clock the Navy squad came running out and did a little passing to warm up. Shortly after- wards the Army team took possession of the field for the last few minutes of preliminary practice. After the usual conference between officials and captains, the teams lined up for the face off. Then the whistle! Lucier, playing his usual cle ver game, got possession of the ball at the face off and started it down towards Army ' s goal. It was intercepted by Army ' s defense, and with clever passing and bril- liant running the Army attack gave it to Simonton, who slipped by for a clear shot at the goal, thus registering the initial score of the game. Thus Army drew first blood exactly fifteen seconds after the first whistle. For the remainder of the first half it was nip and tuck. Shag Ransford and Rags Parrish did some fancy weaving, in and out, in front of Army ' s goal, work- ing for the shot that would even up the count. They were unable, however, to ring up the tying counter before the end of the half. Every attack of ours was met by a desperate and stubborn defense on their part. Thus the half ended with Army still leading 1-0.

The second half started off with a rush, our men playing the Pointers off their feet. After three min- utes came our first goal. Shag Ransford dodged, ran around, and literally crawled under three defense men to put a beautiful and difficult left hand shot past Lewis, Army ' s goal. This put us on even terms once more and started the fireworks. Shortly afterwards Ike Hull received a beautiful pass from midfield and started one of his special " stop, stop, go, go, twisting, turning, and dodging " runs which did not end until he had safelv placed the sphere in Army ' s net for our second counter. With the half about a third over, Willie Cashman, who had been playing back most of the time, saw his opening, made a brilliant dash towards the goal, and sank a pretty shot, making the score, Navy 3, Army 1. The next five minutes was a battle royal. Johnny Cross, fighting like a fiend, took the ball and passed it to Jimmy Lucier. Lucy relayed it to the attack and came in for a pretty return pass, which he sent hurtling past Lewis for our fourth goal. With the score 4-1 in our favor, George sent in some of the reserves for a chance at the coveted N-star. Exactly fifteen seconds after he was substituted, Rollv Curtin dashed in on a nice little run and made his goal. Two minutes before the game ended, Bert Klakring circled the goal with two defense men beating him away, cut in, and slipped one into the net, making the final score 6-1. A strong defense is a major requisite for a team, and to win it must have an aggressive with scoring ability. Without an efficient connecting link between the attack and defense a team is practically useless. Navy ' s links were there every minute of play. The team played inspirational lacrosse to turn victory into defeat, and displayed the fight and fire that is the pride and joy of every true Navy heart.

These midshipmen of a brother service met us with the greatest friendship and open-heartedness. It was our first acquaintance with the men of this great navy, and a pleasant one it was. Our only regret is they could not prolong the visit, so that a more firm friendship could be formed. During their stay here they, in their gracious way, told us about their life back in Japan, about the discipline and traditions of their naval service. These we have endeavored to preserve in the following pages.

It was the Japanese Training Squadron, consisting of the cruisers Asama and Iwate under the command of Admiral Nagano, with one hundred and eighty-three Japanese midshipmen, stopping to visit our Naval Academy on their five months ' cruise to United States ports. They were the newly graduated cadets from the various Japanese Naval Schools. The visit which followed was certainly one that will always be remembered by the midshipmen of both navies. We never before had an opportunity to meet the men of the Japanese Navy. It was with the greatest of pleasure that we showed them the life here and exchanged experiences with them. Saturday, the nineteenth, dawned upon a rainy and bleak day. Instead of dampen- ing our spirits, it served to whet our interest in the Japanese Middies who were to come ashore that day. When the hour of their arrival drew near, the Reception Com- mittee, composed of nearly all of Twenty-Eight, gathered on Santee Dock and then we learned that the same questions were in all our minds.

" Could we make ourselves understood, and in turn, could we understand them? " Perhaps they would be able to speak our language but their ' s was entirely unknown to us. Although some of our number had searched about and equipped themselves with a few phrases like, " How do you do, " " How are you, " we knew these wouldn ' t suffice to fill the day, but as there was no other course open, we decided to see what this new experience had in store for us. Finally they came and it was then we had a pleasant surprise. Very nearly all the midshipmen greeted us with those salutations over which we had labored for the correct Japanese pronunciation. But they spoke not in their native tongue but in- stead in English, and very capably at that. The first doubt was lifted for we then saw that the afternoon would be spent as we both endeavored to understand each other in the language we have practiced so long. " The Japanese Bell, where is it? " This question seemed to be foremost in the minds of most of our visitors. Accordingly in little groups we took them to see Japan ' s gift to Commo- dore Perrv. While they did not understand why it should be rung when our own Army was defeated, at least they were happy to know that when its peal was to be heard in the Yard it signified a Navy victory. if V ; 1 The " ' At Home " on the Iwate Admirals Nagano and Nulton, with staffs witness football game HIHHMTTTTTTTMHTTTT | FROM KNOWLEDGE— SEA POWER zs: m M I M tTITT m TT 371 TTTTTTTTTTTTTmm TTffrTi m»M rt mTH ' M ' ■■ " » " PMH ' T HUM The Lecture Ro The Great Hall ■ From here our guests wished to go where they might see " The great American game — Baseball.

Once aboard we found ourselves in the role our friends had played some days before. It was our turn to be shown about and ask many questions. After having seen some- thing of the life aboard a Japanese cruiser, we were then entertained with exhibitions of fencing, wrestling, bayonet drills and jiu-jitsu. All of them very different from our own interpretations of these sports. Striking at our most vulnerable point, our hosts next plied us with all manner of Japanese refreshments and then we realized our visit was almost at an end. Good- byes were said and promises to write were exchanged. As our sub-chasers shoved off we gave a " 4-N Iwate " and before our cheer had died away, the air was filled with their hearty " Banzais " which marked the end of a very . . . Pleasant Visit. As a souvenir of their visit to the Academy Admiral Nagano presented the Naval Academv with a beautiful bronze vase which has been attractively mounted and will be prominently displayed.

I A Field Meet Swimming in Formation The Japanese Naval Academy THE departure of the Japanese Training Squadron from Annapolis left numerous unanswered questions in the minds of many of us. To fill this gap it is here endeavored to sketch the life and customs of our visitors, which, in many respects, parallel our own. The Japanese naval officer, at the beginning of his career, specializes. Those elect- ing to become deck officers pursue their education at Etajima, while separate schools are provided for those training for the engineer and supply corps. The candidate seeking a commission in the Japanese Navy passes through two distinct stages, similar to the system used in our own Navy prior to the present four- year practice. He first enters the Naval school as a cadet, serving in this status for three years. After completing this course he becomes a Midshipman and is sent to sea for a year ' s cruise. After the successful completion of this phase of his preparation, the Japanese Midshipman becomes the proud possessor of a commission equal in grade to that of ensign.

Here the cadets live in one large building like our Bancroft Hall. Each year no men, graduates of the " middle school, " or high school, enter the Academy. The candidates must be physically fit, and they qualify by means of com- petitive examinations. There are no appointments or social distinctions necessary for qualification. The course of study at Etajima is very similar to our own, beginning with the fundamental subjects of mathematics and sciences, and ending with the professional subjects of navigation, gunnery, torpedoes, radio, " motorships, " and " bridge tactics. " The student naval officer receives most of his practical training after he has gradu- ated from the naval school and has become a midshipman. Then, after a six-month ' s cruise, practical aviation, practical gunnery, and torpedoes are taken up. Athletics form a very important part in the training of the Japanese naval cadet. In addition to the numerous sports played in this country (including American base- ball), Japanese fencing and wrestling are very popular. " Botaoshi, " however, is the characteristic game of the school, and was the only game played at Etajima years ago.

Everything was in festive attire for the event. Maryland Avenue was be - decked with banners; all along the streets the shop windows displayed welcome signs: — " 192.8 ' s graduation bills are payable now. " Never before had such pains been taken to make the visit a pleasant one. George Moffett, the new head of the Department of Streets and Sidewalks, had set two road scrapers busy leveling the contour of the cobblestones to make them passable. Sunday the first of the class arrived. Mak- ing their way over the W. B. and A., the early arrivals were greeted by Station Master Kendall. Force of habit gripped them and in a body Whitey, Mac, Navy, and Smitty headed for the taxi stand across the road. Immediately they were recognized by the erstwhile proprietor and the tea was set to boil. N = Kobbn ■K2XXW3SSSBSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS irmmm Others kept pouring in until all the class had again assembled. Notable among the arrivals was Droopy Hawk, accompanied by his flock of little, but characteristically under- sluns Hawks. The last to return to Annapolis for the festivities was Jimmy Schuber. In he rolled, in a large Rolls-Royce, with the Marine detachment acting as escort to his convoy of beer trucks. The party was on. Promoter Walsh, in whose care rested the arrangements for the week, had prepared a mammoth tour of the old haunts. First to Al ' s we went. Stepping inside his door, a familiar voice reached our ears. " Fifteen, twenty-five, forty, seventy-five, one dollar and a quarter. Thank you. Anything in cigars, peanuts, chewing gum or candy? " Of course it was the little bobbed-haired adding machine. And there, too, was Al, still making the rounds with his jokes. Mistaking Bo-Peep for a mid- shipman Al asked, " Have you heard the one about the bull losing his tail? " Roars of laughter greeted this sally for who didn ' t re- member it. A tremendous racket was heard in the corner of the shop. All hands focused their attention in that direction and found George and Chile Huff in a heated argument as to whether they did remember it. The party was saved by the timely arrival of John Quinn. Tying his horse to the hitching post, John strode in, saying, " I would rather be here than any other place I know. " So saying he calmly pulled out his rifle and shot the lights out. Leaving Congressman Jess behind to make appropriation for a new store, the party moved up the street toward Rob- ber ' s Row. In the windows of some well- known shops this clever legend was dis- played: " It pays to advertise.

Down through the alley past Woolworth ' s 5 10 we noticed the first change in Medieval Old Annapolis. There at the end of the alley was Dave Todd. Mak- ing use of his earlv training Dave had set up a large peanut stand, purveying this delightful deli- cacy to all movie-goers. Into the theatres we went, fully equipped with a supply of bags. The comedy was awful. It featured Diz Daisley in " On to Sparks, " the make and break circuit being supplied by Dawg VanMeter. The main picture was considerably better, however, " featuring Ted Martin in " The Navy, a Cradle of Sea-Power. " Memories again held sway, and in a tender moment on the silver screen Ted ' s efforts were greeted with a salvo from the bags. The show was over and in the rush to get out, " Tolly, " in the usual fog, grabbed the wrong coat. Down Main street we went, only to be stopped by a large mob. Investigating we found Acey Burrows holding the crowd spell-bound while he lectured for Politician Binney in his cam- paign for the abolition of Christmas. Not to be outdone, Babe Boyd reeled upon the platform, and soon the audience was inspired with good old Navy fight. Soon tiring of this gas attack, we continued our way only to be again delayed by the noise of clattering hoofs. It was our own batch of horse marines, just recently returned from their campaign against the mosquitoes in New Jersey. Leading them was Red Ennis. In an effort to show their superiority in militarv tactics, Red forgot his right from left, and his command caused the entire de- tachment to gallop over the sea wall in child-like obedience. Passing by the fish markets we paused at one store advertising the sale of Black ' s Hair Tonic. In the window was Lovev, his head covered with a wondrous u IWfl) ' " 1 « " w « twwn tM t E - fflu ww u ») tBWHiiro w » y .fflt w»HHi»»ug sg 381 sgsnrongttgtt Ko ivcgsgassasratmreTsgsrpgasT g $mm : 3 1 33333SS5XJS3SSSnXS3X533XSXSmX •W8 m mat of brush, demonstrat- ing the qualities of Black ' s Bountiful Bean Bedecker. At this point we noticed a rather ungainly urchin selling magazines. The resemblance he bore to some person caused us to tarry and inquire as to his name. He proved to young Dexter, Smoki Eaters Palace into the streets at a tender age to coerce pedestrians into buying that yellow sheet, " The Friday Evening Roast, " edited by his Dad. It hurt our sense of justice to see this young child earning money which his father and Bill Searles would spend in riotous living in the Second Batt Kitchen. Bicycle Phillips, after considerable deliberation volunteered to put him on the Pap, and tenseness was relieved. Then on the stillness of the gathering broke the loud and vibrating thunder of a human voice. Was it Birdy Lull calling to us from Eastern shore? No, we were mistaken, it was only the fire siren lifting its voice to bring back memories of our past rude nocturnal awakenings. Reforming ranks, Bob Watts, as of yore, took charge and marched us on to Carvel Hall. Many hesitated to enter, for there still remained some form of pecuniary compen- sation to be made for past indiscretions committed in the Grill. But the surprises of the day were not over. Here we found that a dividend was due us for our previous investments had borne fruit; the entire hotel now belonged to the Class. In no time conversation became general, and all manner of inquiries were made. " Where was Jimmy Brett? " Selling gold bricks, of course. " And Fatty Pierce? " Oh, he became gym officer and at the same time conducted a correspondence course on how to become powerful. " Ned Hannegan? " He was in Australia teaching kangaroos three ways to carry a football in their pouches. n .1 N A The Way of All Drags After three hours had passed we decided to leave. Just as we poured out of the doorway we were joined by Oscar Keith and Gene Carusi, who had JUST succeeded in catching up with the party. Of a sudden Stuffy Woods dropped to the pavement and rolled about convulsed with mirth. " I ' ve solved the fourth squad mystery, " he managed to squeal. " It was Eves who was responsible. Ask Donovan, he ' ll tell you. " Eve had fallen, to say nothing of Ed. That night we were to attend the hop at the Gym. The party was to be given by Earl Pope, skipper of the Rezna in celebration of changing the name of Bogvilo. What a party it was. Everything went fine until Bill Pye, using his sex magnetism to advantage tried to date Phil Batterton ' s Greta. Confusion reigned until Otto Ot- terson jumped into the frigid at- mosphere and saved the girl ' s life. And what about the rest of us? Oh, we ' re all in the Navy, except Doc Ballance and Cooty Weir. Play low, sad music, for they are Marines .

It is receiv- ing the approval of the leading Coaches and Athletic Managers, as well as Officials throughout the country. This gauge does away with the under-in- flated " slow " ball and the over-inflated " fast " ball. It assures the same resili- ency in the practice ball as in the ball used for actual contests. The outstanding superiority of the Schrader Athletic Ball Gauge is due to its basic principle of construction — Direct Action. In this type of gauge the air enters the air chamber and simply pushes out the indicator to the correct pressure mark. To test pressure — push doivn on gauge without disconnecting pump hose. TIRE V A L A. SCHRADER ' S SON, Inc., CHICAGO, Toronto, Brooklyn, London chrader Makers of Pneumatic Valves Since 1844 V E S • • -TIRE All delicate mechanism is eliminated. Because of its simple and sturdy con- struction you can even drop this gauge without throwing it out of adjustment. When the ball is being inflated, the air is forced from the pump, through the foot of the gauge directly into the ball. To test the pressure it is not nec- essary to detach the pump hose. Simply press down on the gauge. This downward pressure opens the check valve and allows reading of the actual pressure in the ball with- out loss of air. The Schrader Athletic Ball Gauge registers the true pressure of the ball — not the impact pressureof the pump. Ask your supply house about this new No. 5896 gauge at once.

In the manufacture of Colt fire arms nothing is left to chance. Not content with steels of flawless quality, forgings of unbelievable exactness and machines of micrometer precision, all Colt parts are gauged, finished, fitted and inspected bv hand. Before a Colt fire arm is finally targeted it must pass successfully nearly two hundred critical inspections by unhurried craftsmen who realize their obli- gation to vou. So, purchasing a Colt Revolver or Auto- matic Pistol for a special service is merely a matter of choosing the proper model and caliber. It is as though you delegated a trus- ted and expert mechanic to personally select each part and make up your special Colt for you. Catalog of Colts, No. LB will be 7nailed you, on request.

Sher and A. N. Sullivan, who have engineered the building of America ' s finest Year Book, — the " 1918 Lucky Bag, " — with the aid of the Bureau of Engraving, Inc., and its staff of Annual experts. After two years of hard and continuous research work by the Editor, R. K. James and Manager, J. H. Brett, and their excellent staff of assistants, this wonderful book has become a reality, and we of the Bureau of Engraving, Inc., pay tribute to these men who have co- operated so wonderfully with this organization. The greatest pleasure has been to win their confidence and lasting friendship and to come in contact with men who go forth to carry on the splendid traditions of the United States Navy, — to take their place in the greatest Navy of the world, — to live up to the traditions of those illustrious Naval Officers whose names emblazon every page of American History.
