T T T IET go the port anchor, " comes the order from the -J bridge. One swift stroke of the mallet and the foc ' s ' le is enveloped in a cloud of rusty dust as the heavy chain rattles out of the hawse pipe and the anchor plunges into the green depths below. Bringing a ship to anchor may be a mere matter of routine in a seaman ' s daily life, and yet it requires a great deal of judgment, quick thinking, and d etermined action for perfect execution. This comes only through knowledge and experience. How essential it is that a naval officer be not onlv a seaman but a good seaman so that even the saltiest of old sea dogs can put their stamp of approval on his execution of maneuvers. .

The enthusiasm and spirit of competi- tion is just as strong as if the ship were on the eve of an engagement with an actual enemy, and the crew is as well prepared to put the dummy slugs through the center of a canvas target as they would be to puncture the vitals of an enemy ship with armor piercing projectiles. The score and, perhaps, the expense of this practice is soon forgotten; the actual results remain concealed until the guns are called upon to perform their grim duty. Then it will be seen their effectiveness in war is dependent upon the preparedness of peace. i x i ,jk.

" The Navigator reads his sextant and disappears into the chart house to reappear shortly with the result of his computations — the ship ' s position. It seems almost uncanny that by merely taking an accurate reading of the altitude of heavenly bodies it is possible to determine your position on a trackless waste, because gazing out on the sea one sees nothing but a bare horizon while above in the heavens the sun at the zenith sheds down its scorching rays. Some of the basic principles of Navigation were known when Columbus crossed the ocean to America, but his results were as inaccura te as his methods. Since then the perfection of new instruments and better methods has practically reduced Navigation to an exact science. What an opportunity peace time affords a Naval Officer to investi- gate the finer details of this important branch of his work.

The officer of the deck who suddenly sights a reef dead ahead has done all in his power to prevent a catastrophe when he barks his command down the voice tube or rings up his signal to the engine room to put the ship full speed astern. After this the safety of the ship depends upon the coolness of the engineering officer and the alacrity with which his men shunt the immense power of the boilers from the machines which are driving the ship ahead. Formerly the engineering department was considered merely a necessary evil on board a war ship but today the full value of its importance is realized throughout the service. im m AmlL _-A._ _ A A. A.

True enough actual experiment reveals an abundance of inter- esting results; but unless these can be reduced to a mathe- matic formula, they are of little use in a practical way. This is true especially in cases where inexperienced personnel is concerned. In the field of gunnery the results of the proving ground are worked into a system of formulae which are applicable to future gunnery work in the fleet. Likewise the laws derived from experiment and experience enter into the work of the Navigator, Engineering Officer, Electrical Officer and Supply Officer on board a naval vessel. In brief. Mathematics is the kevstone of a naval officer ' s mental work. % t w -r T-T- - - -T-T- - -T-r - " J 1-1-1,1-1-1-1-1.

The main switchboard is the very heart from which all the vital functions of the ship are controlled. In keeping with modern progressive methods, the Navy has seen the transformation from sail to steam and later from steam to electricity. This latter change has now be- come so complete that today electricity is used for pro- pulsion, lighting, control of guns, communication, and even for ventilation and refrigeration. Thus, have our ships become veritable floating power houses. .• ■ T " " T T T T T 7 T T T TrTT T T T T T iy ir. % :-. ' • Sv J|.

Commander Decatur. " The eyes of the gathering are immediately centered on the representative of the Navy, and it is essential that he create a favorable impression from the start. Such an occa- sion is a priceless opportunity to educate the public con- cerning the naval service and to reverse some of the adverse opinions caused by generally distributed criticism. To do this the speaker must have his facts at hand, and be able to express them with a force that carries with it conviction. No officer, then, should overlook the powerful arm which a knowledge of the English language lends him in carrying through the details of his work. X , . , . w . , .

" An officer paying a boarding call on a foreign vessel is detailed to obtain several matters of routine information but at the same time to establish cordial relations. What an asset is it to him if he can greet the officer of the deck of the foreign man-o-war in the language of his own country. Aside from simplifying his duty, a personal contact is made which is not attainable when using an interpreter. Throughout history differences of language have been barriers to progress and mutual understanding between nations. How necessary is it, then, that a naval officer, who makes associations the world over, be able to sur- mount this obstacle and go forth prepared to express himself forcefully or tactfully, as the case may require, in a foreign language as well as in his own? t }li ,.A._.A.

To change course and head for the nearest medical aid on shore would be useless because a man ' s life is at stake and aid must be given immediately. In the early history of our Navy nothing could have been done under such a circumstance but await the fatal con- clusion, but today our ships carry the personnel and equip- ment to perform the work of a modern hospital. They can handle cases requiring the most skillful surgery as well as the minor casualties which occur in daily routine. This branch of the service knows no holiday and must be ready to serve in both peace and war. Thus the Medical Department fulfills its mission of mercy on the high seas as well as in the equipped hospitals of shore stations. i ;.iss itaiE!ii£riUHas!TiJ ' ; :.-:iiii.:j ' .i9. ?:.«!;■.;, i_l 1 i_i_l_i_i_l_i_l_l_l_l " g ll TTV T — T ▼ ▼ ▼ T T " " T T T ' — T ▼ T T — T Stiiiitiiiii : HoAG, Kimball, Allan, Hughes, Bachulus, Frisby, Carruthers, Stringer, Dinsmore Scatcil: McMoRRiES, Barber, Toulon, Pryor, Pollard, Malcomson, Crooks HYGIENE CAPTAIN J.

Then the maelstrom of a dynamic system grasped and car- ried us — through the gamut of petty disappointments and moderate achievements, lengthy travail and brief relax- ations, almost imperceptible progress and rapid promotions — to the threshold of commissioned life — still inexperienced and still lacking perfection — but imbued bv our common forging with a spirit that tits us to some degree to combat the future problems of officers. In this panorama of four momentous years the events of our metamorphosis are recalled to us.

Summer soon waned into the crispness of fall, and with the advent of September we received a faint introduction to the Aca- demic aspect of our training. All too soon this month sped by, and service clad seniors returning from leave reminded us to our sor row that Plebe Summer was no more.

Dur- ing this period minds are more apt and eager to receive the teachings of pedagogues and the warnings of the experienced, and every little occurrence has a poignant import. Other happenings mav become dimmed with the passing of the years — but the events of this year will linger long in our memories. From the minute the bell rang for the first formation until the last rejoicings of the newly-made ensigns had died away, we were put through the grueling process of being reared, as onlv First Class- i I.

Another treasured remem- brance now arises : Christmas Leave — the most vivid of all — when we rated highest and felt with a child- like vanity the impressiveness of our militarv pomp. These were only slight inter- ruptions in our daily trials how- ever, and we returned, heavy of heart, to carry on once more. We saw winter turn into spring — spring into June — and June-Week end in embarkation. From Lover ' s Lane there arose the hub-bub and clamor of loosened rivulets of youth — the sequel to first year suppressions — combining into the freedman ' s war-cry — " There are no more Plebes.

Embarkation — the neophitic ordeals of coaling and other forms of sea-drudgery — littoral pastimes such as parades and receptions the ennui of boundless water — all joining to impress us with the essence of our careers.

It seemed that those cast- iron craft of ours waxed hungry within with a raven- ous craving for ebon-hued fuel. So we opened up man- holes and deck-plates, cracks and crevices — every possible vent that would give passage to the bunkers below — and for hours poured bushel after bushel of coal into their v itals. This was our first and last insight into a former essential custom, for with the exhaustion of this sup- ply, coal as a fuel passed into oblivion before the in- stallation of oil-burning machinery. Then, as it seemed the scheme of things to thoroughly ac- quaint us with our Atlantic seaboard, we meandered up and down the coast — to Marblehead, Portland, down to Charleston, up to New York, back to Newport, and down to Philadelphia — ac- quiring the old adage of a girl in every sea-port, and displaying there a rather superficial, salty swagger. From the South, even be- yond the waters of the warm Gulf stream, there came a 82. summons — from the waters beneath whose surface rested the remnants of many de- pleted gunnery shells it came — saving to us, " come down unto Guantanamo.

Soon Christmas Leave — with some of its novelty diminished — arrived; and in the roles of upper- classmen we impressed the old home towns with our embellished rank and authority. But the rose- ate road to romance faded into the broad highway of everlasting striving — and only mid-term, the Gymkhana, and the events of spring were able to assuage for its depressions and exertions. There were the usual classes, drills and watches to add their sum of joy, woe, or languor to our lives — and an above-the-aver- age amount of extra-duty to take 1 , s i ► I 4 f ' . -«-- - -t auu A Sr w w ' w- ' I ■- T ' r ' . . r ' .

In the evening hours of spring we found time to walk by the sea-wall and discuss items, philosophies, and the future dreams that bound us to our callings. Then came June Week, that heaven sent boon of land-bound seamen — with its flowers bloom- ing sweetly in the first flush of summer, and with it our ships coming in again to end the second stage of a step-bv-step expansion. !l ■ ■BC 1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1.1,1,1 -▼ — ▼■ ▼ I Second Class Cruise i Th .HROUGH seas and locks and expanses of ocean — to the end of beyond and back again — two ships lackadaisically lumbered bearing us onicavd toward anticipated visions . Colon at the foot of the San Bias range, flora and fauna of the tropics, and the bustle of the West Coast sea -ports, combined to form the topics of future travelogues. Watches in the heat of engine-rooms, gun- drills ad infinitum, and sketches galore went to constitute our second maritime venture. The Nevada and Oklahoma carried us on our second tour of the seas. This time it was a farther cry to our ports of call — and California — the land of sunshine and native suns — was our desig- nated objective. The cerulean surfaces of Southern waters cleft to make way for the gigantic sea-urchins bearing us toward the exhilarating clime of Panama — and the Atlantic port of Colon throbbed to the novelty of a midshipman invasion. Here was the land of eternal mananas, where the big ba- W nanas erew and it was sum- mer all the time. If we had had our say we would have basked here forever amid crimson-hued flowers of Spanish origin — but the bays of the Pacific demanded the fleet. So after twelve days at sea we anchored at San Diego and the populace turned out en masse to display the wares of this naval terminal, to say nothing of its neigh- bor, Tia Juana. A few days passed and then we steamed up to ' Frisco and came to rest within the confines of the far-heralded Golden ' .x % Gate. Here we reveled in the romances of this historic citv of gold and earthquakes and many of its mysteries were unfolded to us. This lasted but briefly and soon the streets of Los Angeles and San Pedro were flocked with blue - begarbed mari- ners. But as good things quickly terminate, we hoist- ed our homeward - bound pennant and steered south- ward for the Big Ditch, to get our land-legs temporarily before undergoing the regu- larly prescribed summer bat- tle practice ofFGuantanamo.

And we make bold to state that ere the inland bays of the Chesapeake were again frequented by grey- hulked men - o ' - war, two ships of the fleet had been diagramed in their entirety. 95 I ■ T " T- T T ' H ► ■ 4 H i i 1 ■1 1 • i ► • 1 Hl 1 » 1 } H 1 M ► M fjsi l ji HH IHp 1 ► " 1 1 ' 1 ► » 1 M ► 1 I 1 ►■ U « M ► M Second Class Year 1 i 1 .

With most purely preparatory subjects completed we entered the realms of professional theory and practice by embarking on the new subjects of Electricity, Engineering, and Navigation. At mid-term, Mathe- matics, the ogre of artistic minds, was buried for good and all with befitting ceremony and the last vestige of our former purely aca- demic pursuits departed from us. In place of this we took up the new subjects of Ordnance and Seamanship and delved into the intricacies of breech-blocks and flag-hoists. 22; T T T T T T T T TTC ;s £ aa zas -22 I .1_1.H. ■■ ■IP ™ ■r ■▼■ — r ■▼■ ▼■ T T T T T T T TT T T T T GO V r— • " ■ " I.

In the spring, baseball, lacrosse, crew, the Masqueraders, and week- end dances vied with other inter- ests peculiar to the season in distracting our minds from studies, but most of us weathered the storm — and prepared for the com- ing cruise with light hearts and unburdened consciences. At the beginning of June Week we were the actors in an impressive ceremony — the Ring Dance. This was the actual end to our third year — with the last frenzied Parades, Balls, and Graduation Exercises serving as fitting anticlimaxes. - I First Class Cruise X HE Junior Officer is the right hand of the fleet, and practice IS the best equipment of Junior Officers. This practice came for the most part on First Class Cruise. Mates-of-the-deck, midship- men aides to executive officers, squad leaders, and a galaxy of cruise details changed weekly as the summer months rapidly sped by. As our last and final contact with the battleships as under-graduates, we recall this cruise with exceptional fondness. t Three cruises complete an under-graduate tour of sea duty so we went to sea again in order to become full-fledged leaders of Acade- my affairs. This last cruise saw us in a most apprecia- tive mood and we grasped with craving minds any mea- ger detail that could possibly be learned concerning the future requisites of officers. An atmosphere of completed manhood became character- istic of the youths of yester- day and in our midst there developed men who thought of things conducive to mari- time betterment. 104 I,: The Arkansas, Florida, and Utah, which we deemed to be the three best ships we had ever seen, took us back over the East Coast ports of Youngster Cruise. Old acquaintances were renewed and new ones acquired — as the roundelays of the orches- tras of New York, Newport, Boston, Rockland, and Port- land re-echoed in our ears. A class that had heretofore been loosely knit by the suf- fering of privations in com- mon was suddenly con- fronted with the fact that to command demanded con- formity of ideas and opinions - and many heated discussions tilled our leisure hours be- fore an acceptableclass policy could be agreed upon. This achievement was supple- mented bv many innovations unknown to previous cruises due to the fertile brains of our more versatile members: installations were effected, new methods of mail delivery devised, and courts of jus- tice established that brought down commendation from the Powers-That-Be. Navigation, executive, engi- neering, and advanced prac- tical seamanship constituted our summer educational pro- (;ranian trom it olmorc tame MDilcrii irais£« ' away Ci left OD ines rare va in cons In Gu, captain: control of our I met termina we had biecK io6 I I gram and gems of knowledge irs K- from the mouths of men of more experience than we became the food of future ponderings. In fact, on this cruise we attempted to wipe away completely any blots left on our escutcheons by the negligences of less ma- ture years in an indulgence in constant application. In Guantanamo, as gun- captains and assistant tire- control officers, the key-note of our destiny was brought home to us, and upon the termination of our last cruise we had grasped the ultimate object of our calling.

A serious nature, an ex- ceptionally active mind, and a keen sense of humor, have made him a natural leader. He has led for four happy years. His leadership has not been confined to the class- room and social activities; the athletic field claims its share of his time, and here, also, Clair excels. Football in the fall, basketball during the winter months, and lacrosse in the spring, each finds in him a player with a true master ' s form and touch. At the end of Youngster vear he wore a sweater decorated with two N-stars, a record which few men have equalled. Basketball brought another. Second Class year, and the captaincy of this sport was added to his growing list of honors. Clair has never had a nickname, for there are none to tit. His is a distinctive nature. A feeling of seeming coldness, which one has upon first meeting him, changes to a sincere friendship upon better acquaintance. His election to the office of Class President shows in what esteem he is held by his classmates; the esteem of men for one who is able to lead them and still not lose that feeling of class comradeship. The years by the Severn have brought him many sincere friendships; it is with deepest regret that we must say " Good-bye.

For a year he remained a Marine, until the call of ahigher education beckoned; whereupon, he took, and successfully completed, the exams to the Naval Academy. With the impression received on the day when he first climbed into those new, tent-like white works, could there be any trouble remembering the congenial Pat? A typical cherub-faced chip of old Ireland, always spireading that gem- like humor for which the Irish are noted. Pat ' s versatility has been well proven as Editor of Pep Logs, and as a three sport athlete. In the latter line he has never proven himself a star; but his dogged determination has car- ried him along with men of greater ability on the same varsity squads. As his davs as a middv draw to a close, we often hear Pat dreaming aloud of his first love. Back to the Leathernecks for him, and the Navy losing another good man. We do not blame him, for the jump from buck private to the bars of a Second Lieutenant is enough to entice any man. He cannot help but rise high in the service he loves so well, and the best wishes of his classmates go with him.

After a short term at San Diet;o, he brought his ambitions to the Academy, along with a willingness to work to their achievement. During Plebe vear. Rick was, as usual, very modest and retiring, and attracted no particular attention; except, perhaps, from Spike Webb Next year, steady application showed result; and he began to find himself academically and at hsticutts. Also, he continued to be an unshaken " Red Mike, ' ' and in consequence unwittingly became a reprobate with a Black N. Second Class vear he made the B-Squad, and likewise showed the old Navv fight as a boxer, and was chosen skipper. Not content with these achievements. Rick reached the Academic top flight, and made a spotless record that belied the earlier fall from grace. As for remaining a " Red Mike " — we must, perforce, admit that such a term became a misnomer. First Class year found him a member of Football A-Squad, and First Batt Commander The latter job is a tough assignment, but Rick has the knack of tackling unlikely jobs and carrying them through. His qu ' " good nature and sincerity have won him many friends, ' and will win him more in the future. He keeps his own counsel, and one might be deceived bv his modest disposition as to the quality of man present; but takes — the man is all there. jUR hero was born and raised in the above-mentioned small, but wide-awake hamlet of Arlington Heights. For the information of those in the darkness of ignorance, we will sav that this place is just outside of Chicago; and naturally Whitey came East as a youth who had been places and seen things. Plebe year, however, he learned that all is not what it seems, and proceeded to lose no opportunities of becoming wiser and scarcer. Finding that discretion is the better part of valor, he soon became accustomed to occasional attention, and survived the vear with his ambition, inhibitions, and sense of humor intact. As for athletics, George became a mainstav in the line of class football team, and each spring swung a stick in the approved style with the annual class lacrosse champions. These are his interests in sports along with a budding passion for golf. Whitey knows quite a few girls, but they do not seem to interfere seriously with other preoccupying subjects. His hobbies are yachts and yachting, and from observation, he is probablv an authority on lofty sail and graceful hull. His virtues are many; his only serious vice is an unaccountable weakness for patent health foods. He has helped to make life pleasant for his roommates, and is an even better friend than companion. His helping hand and cheerful nature are well known; he is destined to become a congenial and capable part of any unit of 131 t9 ;G . rs:c!ifi 25TSS J pcy D C C X X I ■ Tjk }rt)i V -It- f " l -,., ' ' ) N?= C M XXI HOWARD CA ' ENDER BERNET St. Louis, Missour i " howdy " m m HOWDY first sought higher learning at Washington University in St Louis, but finding life at a co-educational institution too strenuous, he decided to tollow in the footsteps of his two older brothers and become a midshipman After a short session at Columbia, he easily passed the exams, and Uncle Sam had another sailor on his pay roll. Bernet is a great admirer and reader of the lives of the best known literary figures in history and consequently has a vocabulary that would do credit to Shakespeare. As you may already have guessed, the academics hold little terror for Howdy and only once or twice has he been forced to lay aside his literature when slight friction occurred with the Math Department. Howard does not, however, confine his effort solely to mental development; besides bemg a prominent figure on the basketball court, he is a conscientious worker on the lacrosse field and we wager that he will wear an " N " or two when he takes his place in the fleet.

Whereupon Buck throve on salt and pined not for sand, his pinings being somewhat belayed by frequent billet-doux from El Reno— not to mention China and parts of Iowa.

His favorite sports are soccer and swimming, and he has spent most of the time since Plebe vear on the training table. When either of these pastimes are not in season he will probably be found on the fairway of the seventh hole trying to trace down a bad drive. He has had some trouble with Academics, but has always managed to pull sat by applying some extra effort at the right time. Pat has missed very little of the social side of the Acade- my. He is a firm believer that the week-end is the time to forget about studies, and invariably has a volume of plans on the proper way to spend all leave periods and ' vacations for years to come.

He knows the mannerisms of North, East, South and West; but those of the South seem to be his natural preference. Plcbe year Gyro started in to practice the maxim " It is more blessed to give than to receive, " with reference to boxing, and has been trying to do most of the giving ever since. Youngster and Second Class years he looked for some more activities and finally ended up by develop- ing the Christmas Card, circulating the Lucky Bag, and managing the book of Navy Songs. It is his good fortune to get along easily with Academics, but occasionally an exam slips up on him from behind and leaves a vague resentment that justice has strayed away. Any- how, Joe will be satisfied if he gets a " passed with credit " m Academics and at the same time keeps up athletic and social activities. Perhaps his most natural bent is for hops and social gatherings; for under such circum- stances, Gyro begins to precess in his happy humor about some girl and keeps everyone amused by his rare happy humor. Joe reads quite a bit; he will listen atten- tively, and is a willing worker. He is a fast friend and should make a good officer and gentleman. ard Committee 2, I Luck li I I I JACK was born in Nebraska, lived a number of years in Haiti, went to school in Wash- ington, and finally became one of us back in June ' 2.5. Being rather young, he started out to demolish all records, scholastic and otherwise; but the steam department pre- vented him from being a savoir, and his faculty of learning what it is all about showed him how many things there are worth doing. As a result he turned his attention to the Log, class athletics, and the fair femmes. The results speak for themselves in that he has controlled the advertising department of the Log successfully for two years, played soccer and baseball to the extent of class numerals, and appeared at every hop — with a different fcmme each time. Being naturally reserved Jack is reallv known by a few close friends and they have found him easy going, entertaining and ready to help anyone at anv time.

However, he was his own photographer; and this leaves room for doubt in the minds of the more skeptical. His ability with the camera, though, won for him the position of Photographic Editor of the Lucky Bag. The Runt doesn ' t spend all his time talking and shooting pictures. He early became a pro- tege of Spike Webb, and his work in the ring has carried him up to the ' arsity string. Box- ing has been his favorite sport, though he plavs a good game of football and lacrosse during the months that boxing is out of season. Also, he is a musician, playing a clarinet in the Gymkhana band and the Naval Academy Orchestra. He has not willingly missed a hop since Plebe year; and as he seldom drags the same girl twice in succession, his hop schedule is a complete telephone directory in itself. How he ever keeps all his dates straight has always been a deep mystery. The Academics have never bothered Shorty to any greater extent than to take time that he might have spent in occupations he liked better, and considered much more important. To him the Academics are a necessary evil, and he has often seriously doubted their necessity.

He has been known to come down with such diplomatic phrases as, " Shove off, I don ' t like you, " or " You ' re wrong. " Bushie is strong for the idea of starting with the right foot first. This is doubtless because it is the custom to start off with the left foot first in the Navy. He is sincere if he tells you in very pointed terms that you are a complete washout, but if he clouts someone else five minutes later for remarking that your feet turn in, that same are flat, or some equally derogatory statement, don ' t be surprised.

We shall always remember old " Matte -eve " for his cheery smile and ever ready jokes. It would be impossible to think of him without remembering some of the old stand-bys. During his Naval Academy career, he has been active in everything from boxing to art. He is no mean hand in either of them, as everyone knows from his work with the class boxing teams and the Academy publications . . . not to mention certain well known periodicals. Academically speaking, Mattie has managed to beat out the department for that " flat 1.5 " whenever it was needed. Although he has been on the edge once or twice, with a slight increase in effort " Matt " has always come out on top. The only reason for his ever getting near the edge has been his ability never to let anything worry him. Possibly the only expla- nation lies in the fact that he has been a true " Red Mike " for almost four years. We are all glad that " Dominie " heard the call of the sea, way up in New York State.

At times his spelling will seem considerably more phonetic than that found in Webster ' s best seller; however let this not be interpreted as an indictment of his intelligence. In that we are striving to be most honest, we must mention a few weaknesses. The word weakness is rather ha h; but what, mav we ask, can we call a red-headed woman? We have seen the fair-haired Oliver rush to the aid of a Russian poet who was being belabored, kid New York taxi-drivers, select a fur coat, and send a tele- gram all in one night.

He can always produce money from mys- terious places to lend his destitute roommates. He is usually busy, and his activities are many and varied. When he is interested in some- thing he always does it well. He plays a good game of tennis, fair basketball, if not too tired, and swims— well, he swims for the Second Company. He more than holds his own at the hops but doesn ' t fall in love too often. The Academic Departments seldom trouble him. Thus far Henry has made a success of most of his undertakings without an over amount of worry. If the past is a criterion of the future he will attain success in the same characteristic way.

A few breaths of salt air, the sight of American and foreign men-of-war, and the Army ' s loss was the Navy ' s gain. He does not wear a star on his collar, but nearly acquired one with very little effort Plebe year. Energetic and resourceful, but conservative in certain respects; a certain well-known Scotch instinct is indicated in that he does not believe in earning velvet to have it wasted. A scintillating wit; a keen sense of humor; never bothered or worried by trifles; Bob enjoys life, and can make the most of a leave or a liberty. However, when assigned some job to do, he does it promptly and efficiently. A gentleman and a scholar, and a good judge of many things.

Although he is not thoroughly familiar with Blackstone, his ability to quote any one of the six hundred and twenty-nine articles of the Reg book convinces us that law should have been his victim. We fancy Dumas ' stories of D ' Artagnan have had no small part in influencing his tender athletic tendencies. He is a fencer of no mean ability, and it appears certain that the varsity gains a new man this year. He assumes an air of dreamy seriousness at times from which it is hard to detach him. Rarelv do we find one so untouched by contact with the world and unchanged by the variety of experiences which fall to the lot of those who sail the briny deep.

The gold of the hills of his native California somehow has forever become imbedded in his heart, and the sunshine of old Erin an integral part of his smile. A contagious enthusiasm in all undertakings, whether dexterous dabblings in the cubist art, or nocturnal peregrinations in search of romance and adventure, make him an invaluable asset to those of us who indulge more freely in life ' s little revelries. His characteristic exuberance and boundless energy have carried him far on athletic fields, and soccer and baseball enthusiasts have often cheered at the accomplishments of the little Celtic lad with the beaming countenance. But he would rather fight than eat, — boxing is his real forte, — and a berth on the Varsity squad throughout his career has rewarded his efforts. Radiator activities Youngster year presaged four stripes for " Our Boy, " but a trip to the Reina Mercedes and other conflicts with the Powers-That-Be made these seem rather doubt- ful. He bent his mind to other fields, and feminine conquests, especially at Portland on First Class Cruise, made him a ranker of note and renown in this very pleasant line of endeavor. Prophesies are the province of the foolhardy — but when the scroll of ' iij unrolls for a final reading we presage that the attain- ments of a diminutive Irishman will stand high on the list.

" Such was the tale " Chuck " told after breez- X ing back from his first leave in some eighteen months. Surely a long time without leave, but then his attachment to the Executive Department rather made him hesitate to depart from the kindly portals, even for so short a time as Sep leave. However, demerits cannot dampen a happy disposition, and when we look down the corri- dor and see a duck walk, set off bv a pair of bow legs and a wide grin, we know that Biinny IS bearing into view. Always ready for anything but formation, he is inevitably awakened from his ' reverie by the bell; whereupon there ensues a mad search for reefer, books, and all the rest of the midshipman ' s impedimenta. Academics and drags, the ogres of many of his classmates, never seem to worry this boy; he lust takes them ' or leaves ' them. Nevertheless, the M.C. ' s always seem to leave a stack of mail on his table; so he must know someone who can write. The Suicide Club attracted his athletic tendencies the first two years; but unfortunate illnesses forced him to change his activities to the radiator club, wherein he achieved the distinction of Circulation Manager of the Lucky Bag. A cheerful and willing worker, never failing to see a spark of humor in most anything, " Chuck " cannot help but be an ideal comrade and friend to all those with whom he comes in contact.

Tall, blonde, and bland, and possessing that intangible appeal which has invariably caused the tidal waves of emotion to rise in the hearts of the eternal feminine, his romances have bidden fair to take him above the apprentice class. When the bludgeons of fate have fallen all around us, our cousin has always displayed the most unruffled and oblivious tranquility — undisturbed and unfettered by Executives, Aca- demics, and other paltry matters. His early training on the Columbia River made it inevitable that his athletic tendencies should be along the lines of natatory sports, wherein he achieved marked distinction as a water polo player. And then in other fields, gentlemen — there came a day when the rough and rugged Westerner draped a bear-skin coat about his stalwart physique, set a derby hat over his ears at a rakish angle, swung a lacquered cane under his arm, and sauntered down Broadway amid the plaudits of the multitude — a veritable young Lochinvar. When the traits of serenitv, frankness, and big-heartedness are combined in one man in such abundance, it is only befitting that this man acquire unnumbered friends — and there is no other recourse but to foretell for him an aureate future.

These attributes, with a minimum ot bonins have earned him safelv through the four-year siege of the academic and executive departments. He mav have a girl, we ' re not sure; although she writes at regular intervals, sometimes. But when it comes to telling them sweet nothings that cause hearts to flutter, " Chick " makes brave optimistic overtures.

From time to time, this errant vouth supplicates the Gods of Chance; and once they frowned-at the expense of Christmas Leave. He learned the rudiments of soccer in the wilds of Staten Island (the fierceness of which he delights to relate); but a knee that refuses to stay put any place but in the hospital robbed him of the coveted " N " in that sport. Effervescent helium, coupled with brilliant leadership, is the formidable batterv which equips " Zemben " for future achievements; and on native shores or in foreign fields, this lieht-hearted musketeer can ever be relied upon to crash through, if the predictions " of a mvriad of friends are sound.

The rest of the time is spent m non-academic pursuits of various sorts. Yet he not only manages to stay sat, but usually has enough velvet piled up so that he can sleep those remaining fifteen minutes during the last month. Nic doesn ' t kill himself boning, but don ' t get the idea that he is lazy. On the contrary, he is one of those unfathomable, yet indispensable people who thrive on work. He ' s never so happy as when taking care of the business end of the Masqueraders or Musical Clubs ' performances; his industry and talent along this line have earned for him the position of Business Manager of the Masqueraders, and the title of " Flo Ziegfeld " among his friends. Nic has a happy, carefree disposition that is hard to down. Even in the face of such adversi- ties as a blind drag or a watch on a hop night he retains his good humor.

Early in his career he was dubbed the " Father of the Steam Navy " ; in the Mexican War he merited and received the com- mand of the largest naval force ever assembled under the American flag, and he rendered material aid to the Army at Vera Cruz. His greatest coup, one which predecessors had failed to strike, was that of opening the Orient to trade. Here his firm, unyielding methods of diplomacy broke the re- serve of Japanese seclusion, won the respect and admiration of those individuals, and overturned a cornucopia of wealthy commerce. There was em- bodied in this one man the versatility, capabil- ity, and devout spirit which are the criterion of every noble character. imiuiiiiiiiiiimmiiiiiimiUiiiiimTTTj N .

You could see his flaming topknot even after walking the famous mile, but his disposition is as mild as a Guantanamo evening. Nevertheless, when he decides he wants something it would take an earthquake to change his course. Life is a very serious matter for him. His whole scheme of things is built about the thought that while speed and dexterity win for many, the real way to go after a goal is to put your head down and push. His vocabularv sometimes resembles Samuel Johnson ' s, his imagination that of Rider Haggard; ' he can overflow like a poet, rave like a sentimentalist, or act like a child, yet he is the tvpe of man you would choose to help you carry out a dangerous mission.

One can hardly conceive of the situation that could disturb his quiet composure. In class, his matter-of-fact attitude has often given him the high mark when anv knowledge of his problem is due to his logical insight rather than to any previous studv. Although dipping into most sports only a very little, Mac has devoted serious attention to the handling of the duelling swords in the fencing loft. To see him after a quiet afternoon is to be convinced that there is considerable exercise in fencing. During the summer he wields a mean tennis racquet, and at all other times a mean slide rule. On some subjects Mac is non-communicative; you would never guess from his impersonal discussion of girls that his manv " drags " have all averaged above starring. Mac likes to do things well; an argument with him is almost always settled in his favor. Unaffected by expediency, he does things because he believes in them; Mac is firmly convinced that no one could possibly know better than he what his policy ought to be. Wherever Mac is, he will lead, whether by the justified confidence of his superiors or by his own personality.

To limber up, Ray went in for several things, pulled hard at a mean breast stroke and, besides winning most of his races, was made the " " head man " for the last year. What more could you ask?

" John has graduated from the Academy without experiencing one of the greatest thrills offered by the Academic Department— that one of pulling " sat. " He was the other extreme but not too absorbed in his subjects to help a less fortunate classmate or to join in a " bull session. " A casual observer would have thought that a box had arrived from his home to see the crowds in his room on the nights before exams— all in quest of some first hand knowledge. In short John is a brilliant person who is a " good fellow " also. His athletic career was as successful as his academic. Plebe year he made end on the football team and defense on the Plebe lacrosse team. The B-Squad football claimed his services during the next three years, but he was on the varsity lacrosse squad each year. A hard worker and a clean player. When any members of the opposite sex were in evidence, so was John. Although many flutters of feminine hearts have been caused by his line, still he was more or less immune from violent affairs. He was always true to theO.A.O., but he had several changes of heart during the four years. All in all John is a gentleman, a scholar, and a ludge of good-looking girls. " What, only three letters this morning? " " Darn it, I busted; I only got a 3.6 on the math exam. " IT WAS a memorable day, that — the gods had indeed smiled on us, poor pampered pets that we are — for Burl ' had joined our ranks. And while we baked and cursed under a merciless July sun in our new yellow-white works. Burl was right there beside us, dealing out those large helpings of smooth, philosophic humor that soothed, cooled, and bathed our shattered nerves as a kind of balm. A believer in sports, many were the afternoons when Friend Wife — I strongly suspect an indulged desire to be amused — would gallop through the strange antics,— those terrific strivings and involved formations— that mark the lives of company teams. Later he might appear n the doorway, battered and torn- with two minutes to formation! Then flew the proverbial fur, for Burl was a past master at the lightning-change art that is so useful to a midshipman; then, too, you know, he just couldn ' t be bothered being late. B.H. combines a subtle sense of humor with an administrative ability of no mean merit; a politic sense of true proportion of things with a finesse at pipe-smoking that has proved infallible with the hearts of voung ladies— witness the storming multitudes. And so we have Burl, the man. A true Pennsylvania gentleman, one from whom we can expect and get results, and a pal in the warmest meaning of the word.

This conservatism expresses itselt in various wavs. One of these pertains to a unique distinction he holds, i.e., that of heme the onlv Midshipman to keep a carbon copy of every letter he writes, and to possess a complete cross-indexed file of his everv acquaintance. Those of us who are fortunate enough to rate a card in his file know that he is not mechanical, as he seems on the surface, but that underlying all is a true literary strain. No one in the Academy can touch his knowledge of current literature. His method of getting better grades for his scant amount of boning has been the despair of his classmates for these four short years. The Log claims a large port ion of his time, but still he finds time to splash around in the big pool. A non-smoker, but vou should see him mhale a Sunday night ' coke Paul missed a hop once Youngster year; since that time he has had an unbroken string of victories.

He would have made a big hit in Greece, several hundred years ago, because he has a delightful combination of wisdom and athletic energy. When they lined the boys up according to size, Schultz was on the end— the small end. He backed up the whole third Company as the rear guide of the Fourth Platoon, but bring- ing up the rear was not one of his habits. To prove it, he became " skipper " of " Cross Country " Second Class year. Fritz ' s business was track, his hobbv Juice. A tangled wiring diagram is absolute " fruit, " and the purr of a generator is music to him. If he stays in the Navy, we shall be running all of our ships wi ' th electricity and have enough left over to run toasters, percolators, and curling irons on the Practice Cruises. His passion for learning, ladies, and last but not least, chow, is intense.

Desirmg to know his profession from the ground up, he first enlisted ; then entered Annapolis after a vear in the service, thus gaining a well-rounded view-point invaluable to an officer. Academics have required too much of Whitey ' s time to permit full development of his talents as a sprinter and boxer.

Sometimes Steamie entertained us with episodes in the balcony of Dahlgren Hall during basketball games; sometimes with pranks on the way to and from Steam classes. At other times he worked hard both in academics and boxing. Occasionally, all else would be forgotten in an affair du coeur, in which his " limpid pools of blue, fingered with black lashes " played a prominent part. The cruises brought to light Steamie ' s one great weakness— a tendency to get lost below decks during the morning working hours. Otherwise, Steamie was a perfect companion on the cruises and the liberties, especially since, no matter how many evils and vices assailed him, his head always remained above the table.

This illusion resulted A. JA. in a Dago re-exam, but since passing this he has always held a fair lead over the Academics. These early struggles cut short his athletic career, but for a time only. In the fall of Second Class year, he broke forth with an A-Squad suit and a bad elbow, which later prevented further advancement in football. But the next spring he came into his own in lacrosse. He had had no experience, but developed so rapidly that George played him against " Light Horse Harry " Wilson for some sixty minutes in the Army game. Amusement in many forms has attracted him, from room wrecking to " big " liberties, from varsity athletics to " bull " sessions. His tales of Christmas leaves in Baltimore have rung throughout the batt. He has even temporarily convinced us that North Dakota is not just a barren waste.

While not a star man, the Academics cause no clouds to appear on Eddie ' s horizon, and sometimes we find him giving the star men a close race, which would be much closer if we found less irrelevant reading matter in his room.

While It has never been his highest ambition to step off the pivot with one full and six- half steps, he has ever kept the demon academics well under control. Nor have his efforts in the line of sports gone unrewarded. Four years of effort in many sports have brought home a sense of leadership and responsibility not easily acquired. Academically speaking, Pat realizes that there are many Admirals, but there is only one judge Advocate General. There lies the road. (Let us not in our wanderings imply for a moment that Pat is any sort of a sea-lawver!) There are people we appreciate more the better we know them, and Pat is of that type.

This change was made in favor of a career of travel and adventure. Upon entering the Academv, the shock of the routine life and the divers other difficulties were no more trivial to Rollo than to the others, but being dauntless and unaffected, he dis- tinguished himself in many ways. With a minimum of study he made a splendid record in Academics, learning among other things the true value of his Island home. After rowing on the Plebe crew, and giving the ' ' arsitv oarsmen a fight for their positions, Rollo resigned from the pastime of the ' ' Galleys Second Class year, and followed the oriflammc of George Finlayson ' s famed charges of the Lacrosse field. When we attempt to prognosticate about Rollo ' s future, our thoughts turn to those renowned words of Patrick Henrv. Perhaps Rollo will not acclaim, " Give me liberty or give me death, " but whenever he determines his course and conventional intervention, we should not be surprised to hear him plagiarize by shouting, " I care not what course others mav take. " Rollo is independent, yes; and he has a will that IS certain to carry him through. " It ' s really the nuts. " " 7 1. , SI V n a d .

" However, we have known occasions when the " likable souls " were of the fairer sex. This brings us to the conclusion that it is best not to take him too seriously on this subject. In spite of an addiction to the vile but delightful weed, Charlie cannot be called a juggler of the festive tea-cup. In the winter we find him turning his hands to boxing and in the spring, turning his feet to track.

Preparation there after the customary , sojourn in his native high school of Revnoldsville, Pennsylvania, placed him in commanding stead for the more versatile courses to be pursued here in the Academy. Fast and accurate his opinions were formed, then moulded after joining this cosmopolitan family of 1919. Having no means for comparison and believing that all who entered here were of the intelligentsia, this ambitious specimen found himself very pleasantly alarmed when his experience ' s proved to him that he could more accurately describe, more easily study, and more logically reason than the many who compromise the ma|ority. Strange experiences and adventures have a dart-like attraction for his daring eyes, which scan the horizon in eagerness for excuses for participation.

Size, however, did not deter him from athletic I J events, and experience on the Plebe and ' arsity baseball and basketball squads worked wonders in developing his diminutive frame into larger proportions and letting the sporting world know of the prowess of Dennett. In this connection there was once an Army-Navy basketball game which we all remember well, as did the choosers of the All- Eastern quintet of that year. But one afternoon Dame Fortune ceased to smile on the Kid and an injured knee seriously hampered the gaining of further athletic laurels. An overflow of vim now gave him no rest, and he bent his mind to the promotion of various schemes and enterprises. On one occasion we found him busily engaged in furthering a football pool; on another, it was a roulette wheel which took his fancy. Whatever the proposition, headlong went this dynamic lad in seeing it through. In this manner, for four years his perpetual need for movement left him no time to worry over the vicissitudes of Academic and Executive fortune. Exit the Kid— one hundred and seventy pounds of brawn and abilitv; who goes forth to seek the rainbow that merges with salty horizons and to promote further schemes beyond these grey-walled confines.

But with the passing months Bill has proved himself worthy. He has a markedly unexceptional attitude towards life; a love of good things is inherent in him. However, he refuses to put out for them unless aroused. For example, note the X.5 in Physics, Youngster year. Academically spasmodic, he has never worn stars but has learned to get " that 3.0 average. " As a lover of music, Willie worships Gene Austin; he has never heard of Caruso, and doesn ' t care a rap. The athlete in him has found his place in the harness of the Navy buggy, and has added to the " old sixty. " Being full of fight and a real " tough sailor boy, " he runs wild in lacrosse and basketball. As a " Red Mike " he met his downfall on Second Class Sep leave, and is still wandering through the Blue. His classmates know that his future is secure, and are unanimous in vishing him good luck.

It was a mere matter of four years ago that Burleigh acquired ' the idea that he would like to put in some time at the Academy, but since that idea blossomed forth the interyenmg time has seemed like forty years This is due, no doubt, to the Acs, with whom he has had some hair raising experiences From his behayior one would be led to think that yelyet was something easy to acquire but hard to get rid of. Howeyer, we still find him topside and going strong. He has two occupations, eating and sleeping. As for food, do not mention the fact in his presence, as the mere aroma of it puts more life mto him than a shock oyer in the juice lab He has been rather an indifferent snake and )ust drags enough to keep his interest up.

He has many ambitions— to get that word " credit " on his certificate of work well done, to obtain an N star, and to get a ship based at Philadelphia. Despite all this he has a regard for the ladies which makes him quite popular with them. Les had a hard road ahead of him when he entered, but he managed to avoid the pitfalls, coming out ahead of the anticipa- tions of those who have " known him; even the attraction back home realizes her faith was not misfounded, and we expect him to be a find for the skippers under whom he will serve.

But the night life of this metropolis proved too slow for our hero, reddest of Red Mikes though he is; so he induced his family to move to Baltimore! Loudly then the papers and, later, Tome, proclaimed him a Baltimore boy. Gaze upon the original one. Education must needs be had. St. James was the honored mstitution at which place he rose to the pinnacle of fame as a track man. A love of the sea, gained probablv from his manv trans-Atlantic trips, guided his unwary footsteps toward the Academy. Little did he cogitate upon the difference ° f ' } ' ' . ' ' from a liner and as viewed from a battleship; so on June 16, 1913, he took the fatal step.

He ' s not afraid to tell anyone what he thinks of him. He is the kind of man who makes either fast friends or bitter enemies, and the latter are such because they do not understand him. His activities are usually company sports and they claim hun everv vear as a willing participant. He is no snake, but he generally appears at the hops, sometimes with a drag and sometimes without.

Any time a fri end felt blue, a smile and a little of Bill ' s good spirits would soon make the day seem brighter. Who among his classmates could say Bill was ever lacking in good cheer?

Brute is of a retiring nature, and has that emotional restraint typical of his strain. Warm- hearted and generous, vet not too impulsive, he goes through life taking things as they come; if anything, he is a little too easy going. Brute is not of a personality to have a large circle of intimates, but he holds those who enter his friendship. It requires close companionship to really appreciate what he is.

Following his maxim of non-procrastination, he at first met and thwarted, with the exertion of much effort, the Academic onslaughts of Plebe and Youngster vears; and having found himself, proceeded to put to rout these ever-present antagonists during his last two encounters. Then, in the respite gained from scholastic pursuits, he sought more diverting fields; in football, water polo, track, and especially wrestling, he displayed exceptional prowess.

" On the Cruise and at the Academy he has shown no favoritism toward the hops because he hates full-dress and too much social indulgence. Nevertheless this does not mean that he does not like the femmes; on the contrary, he is always willing to drag, and delights in fixing up his roommates with a nice, red-headed femme. Academics give Swede no little trouble, but he always takes them in the right spirit and manages to crash through. He has athletic tendencies and does not permit a day to go by without his work-out.

However, because at times he quaffed the grail of insurgency, and searched for incongruous ideals, and nightlv sang " over the walls and far away — the Powers-That-Be conferred on him no material honors. So he shrugged his shoulders good-naturedly and chose the role of director from behind the scenes.

Somewhere in his make-up there is a hidden germ which acts as a persistent goad to keep him searching for some elusive bit of knowledge that will perhaps solve his restlessness. So he applies himself to books— big books, small books, gaudy books, and plain books, which result in a complete mastery of academic problems, a polysyllabic vocabulary that even amazes the English profs, and a speaking knowledge of most every topic under the sun.

The word smiling certainly characterizes Jack for he seldom loses his smile, even ' when the going gets rough and the path grows thorny. Jack hails from Chicago, the wicked city, but a city noted for its genuine love for the Navy. He inherited this liking and hasn ' t been discouraged since he built his boyhood castles, not even by the more material side of the Navy as a midwatch in the iireroom. Jack had ambitions in football. He was probably inspired by the prowess of the Jack Dalton of old, and stuck out doggedlv for his choice among the sports. He lacked sufficient avoirdu- pois to startle the gridiron world even if he did have a fighting heart. Now we arrive at the social and scholastic side. Jack drags occasionally, but seems to prefer being friends with the fair sex in general to devoting his attention to any one. Studies are necessary evils to Jack.

After an unsuccessful attempt to enter with " Twenty-Eight, " he enlisted in the Navy and his persistence was rewarded when he joined us late Plebe summer. A never-ending source of amusement to those with whom he comes in contact. Horse immediately became immensely popular with the upper classes and his Plebe year was the kind now only thought of as part of the " Old Navy. " His tales of horrors of that last coal- burning cruise are also a part of the " Old Navy, " but in spite of it all, or perhaps because of it all, he has consistently remained a true Southern gentleman, true to the little girl back home, and always a loyal friend and classmate.

" No, Spud isn ' t what one might call a " snake " ; but still there is that something about him which women just can ' t resist. This theory is well proved bv the manv skirts found in Clayton ' s wake. The Academics hold no such fear for him as for some of the rest of us. Just give him a " Cosmo " to bone during study hour and he is sure to crash through with 3.5 dailies even though he may not make a i.o on the exam. He has such a smooth line that the profs believe he ' s right when he ' s wrong. Ever since Six Gun used to push his old Ford across the sagebrush wastes of Wyoming, he has been determined to become an aviator. You see, he is just the man for the Navy, around and over, but never under a barrier blocking his way. Too bad for the little diving boats. We all know that Spud will make a name for himself and the service and here ' s wishing him the best of luck in the fleet. Black M Suh-Squcid HERB " is one of the Native Sons who broke away from his beloved country, and joined the ranks of the " pampered pets. " During Plebe year, he made the startling discoverv that " Absence without leave " was not looked upon with favor by the authorities, and ' his first leave was spent in the Main Office. Not in the least downcast by his bad luck, he decided to prove his worth; and this he did in fine style when, demon- strating his artistic and business ability, he gave to us our class crest and the design for our ring. Youngster and Second Class years, " Herb " had some difficulty in proving to the " Ac " and Medical departments that he rated the coveted " two-hve " and " io-io " ; but true to form, he would not give in and when the crisis was reached, he came through with flying colors and stayed with us. His athletic prowess was confined to soccer during Plebe year, when he was a member of the Plebe Varsity Squad. After that he was far too busy with Math, rings, and Sub-Squad to have any time for booting a ball around. " Herb " has the qualities of an " Officer and a Gentleman, " qualities for which all men strive; and those who are associated with him in the years to come will find in him a willing helper and a true friend.

" Ben ' s Plebe year lament has changed with the years, and now, unless suffering a post-leave depression, or a . reverse in his love ' affairs, he will admit the Navy has its possibilities. He dis- tinguished himself in high school as a debater and golfer. While he had to lay down his brassie to pick up an oar, there is nothing in Rocks and Shoals to prohibit argument, and wherever there is a first rate discussion going on, it is just a question of time before Ben settles it with a few well-chosen words. His natural affinity for water soon showed itself, and he has spent hours in the pool since. His ability, plus more hard work than his roommates ever saw, have placed him with the best of Navy swimmers, and his sweater has sported an N since Youngster year. Ben doesn ' t wear a star; but he never lets academics interfere with the more serious business. He considers exam week a good chance to catch up on correspondence. While his roommates perspire over B-H saturation curves, Ben composes epics of epistolary literature. His letters seem to bear fruit, as the pictures on his locker door testify. In fact, we must reluctantly classify him as a successful, but not too enthusiastic, genus rep- tilian.

" Ever since Plebe year Don has struggled with Academics, to gain the coveted 1.5, not for himself, but for his roommates. Incidentally, in doing so, he gained a star for himself. Don, being of superior intelligence and sound mind, shunned the attraction of the opposite sex, and rose to the exalted rank of " Red Mike, " and, at the same time, financier. Though he seldom dragged, Don furnished financial backing to many a hopeless undertaking ofhis thankful roommates. With every dollar came a word of advice; and when " Buster " spoke, it was well worth the listening. Fortune took it upon herself to play a few tricks on him which nearly changed his vocation from Naval Officer to heavenlv sheep herder and master of the mouth harp. On Youngster Cruise Don took one look at a swab; and the Urah turned from stormy Cape Hatteras, put the firerooms under forced draft, and headed for Newport, where they deposited all but the appendix of our hero; and there our cowboy established his summer home. With four vears behind him, Buster starts out with a star on his collar and a diploma in his hand, just peering over the hill of success; and we know his goal is the other side. Whetheror not his course be forward or astern, here ' s hoping we go together as shipmates in the future.

Not that he bones to the exclusion of all else (witness the success of every company team he happens to adorn), but his stubbornness will not let Old Man Academics get the better of him. Youngster Cruise saw his downfall before the onslaughts of one Daniel X. Cupid, and since that time he has been a confirmed " Red Mike " — but on June Weeks he drags with the best of them. His taste in pulchritude is well matched by his taste in literature; Kipling occupies a prominent place on his shelf. This discernment and adherence to the best in literature have served to give him a philosophy nicely balanced between the humorous and the serious. A quiet philosopher, this lad; one who is rich in wit, and intelligent enough to avoid trying to be a spendthrift.

At any rate, he entered, saw, conquered. Size has not been an obstacle to him in the way of athletics. For four years he has been an important and hard working member of the wrestling squad. His assiduous endeavors were justly rewarded with the raVe honor of captaincy during both Second and First Class years. His native pugnacity has in no way been apparent in every day contact.

Insofar as winning friendships and honors he has certainly succeeded. Many times have we heard his well-known voice " spitting " out the phrase which begins this " scribbling of a demented pen, " for he has won the coveted place of Third Batt Ad)utant.

FTER a year spent at the University of Oregon, Al decided that a career upon the r hrinv deep would be more to his liking, and forthwith proceeded to join outranks. A Plebe and Youngster years found him waging a great battle with the Academic departments, but the Professor was always just a step ahead of the latter. However, since that time he has proceeded to step out and throw the various departments for a well-known loop. In his Plebe year he evinced an interest in fencing which with a lot of hard work has earned for him the captaincy of the team. Ritle also is one of his hobbies, and every spring finds him over on the range putting holes in the bull ' s eye. The Professor is not only an " out of doors " man but a literary genius of no little ability, and the Lucky Bag has benefited accordingly. The more there is to a man, the harder it is to say of him what he justly deserves. So it is with Al, and perhaps we should simply say that they don ' t come any finer and let it go at that.

" Doc " sauntered down to Crab- town after having made a splendid record in high school, where he smashed several high school track records and was honored with a position on Michigan ' s Ail State High School eleven. We have been rather disappointed with his accomplishments in athletics since his entrance into the Academv. He stars in onlv three major sports, and spends his spare moments in the winter representing the heav -weight class in wrestling. A typical Saturday afternoon for him in the Spring is to take two or three firsts in a track meet and then drop by the baseball field and pitch a no-hit game. During the Fall he specializes in blocking kicks and throwing opposing backs for losses. " Doc " is the same " true-blue " off the athletic field as on it. Though his calling shall carry him to the ends of the earth we know that wherever and whenever we find " Doc " Wilson, we are certain to see him " crashing through.

Most of the year the training tables are graced by our fair-haired athlete. Good work on the B-Squad earns his toast in football; and then he goes out for basketball, which is really his game. Here he is one of the boys, and, as we all know, delivers the goods quite regularly. In the troublesome details of battling the wolves of the Academic Department, George is one of those favored mortals who pursue the golden middle path. Well above any danger of bilging or need of strenuous effort, he progresses undisturbed, taking what he chooses from life and getting the maximum of contentment and success.

How- ■ ever, his Academic record is something of which such a character might himself have been proud. His career here has not been limited merely to the pursuit of the Academics, for he has taken an active part in athletics. For three years he was a member of the well-known " Sub- Squad, " and at the end of this period he passed to the satisfaction of the Athletic Depart- ment, and, much to his own satisfaction, the buoyancy requirements. " Noah " has made a host of friends, particularly with his unsat and ambitious classmates, whom he always cheerfully assisted in their scholastic struggles. He has made a host of friends as well with the underclassmen, for during his last year at the Academy he was the Official Bean Computer and Appetite Satisfier in his capacity as Battalion Commissary Officer.

Plebe summer he spent most of his time teaching the citv slickers from the East the correct pronunciation of " Nevada. " Boning, for him, seems to be an unnecessarv evil. About once a year he gets ambitious, does a " little serious boning, and pulls star grades for the month. He then secures for the year, thinking he has done ' his duty by Uncle Sam and earned his $780. Every spring he gets restless, makes out his resignation, ' and plans big things; but he never gets around to turning it in. We shall find him in the Navy until he gets too old and decrepit to be of any further use. Chicken does not fall in love, but in three cruises and four years in blue serge and brass buttons has left a trail of broken hearts extending the full lengths of both coasts and radiat- ing for miles around Crabtown. Van knows what he wants and usuallv gets it. This should bring him success in the Navy or in any other line he might enter.

MILTON CAREY DICKINSON Mobile, Alabama " dicky " " dick " I FROM that sunnv city of the Southwest, Mobile, there came to us in the early days of Plebe summer a typical Irish youth whom we have learned to know as Dick. Dick ' s hii h school days were spent in Mobile, where he learned the necessary amount of algebra and geometry to pass his entrance exams. He has continued his work here, learn- ing enough to stay sat and no more if he can help it. When he came to the Academy he thought football was a good sport for all men and tried It but soon found it required more beef than his 140 pounds. Then he decided to take up a new sport, and learned soccer. He must have picked that art more readily than his studies, for he stars in his chosen sport and captained the team m his first class year. Dick ' s other diversion is the fair sex. He was making great strides toward having them all at his feet when he abruptly fell for one of the fair southern damsels of his home town Now he spends all his spare moments writing letters which all have the same address, and no day is a complete success for him unless he receives a letter from that same place. Dick, with his ready smile and continued cheerfulness, will be a wonderful shipmate for anyone who is lucky enough to be on the same ship.

Besides this, radio and the many letters from Missouri help while away the weary hours. First Class year, inherent ability in Juice made Tweed the director of the Juice gang and allowed him full expanse for his genius. We all remember the blinding red and green Mas- querader sign. Another outstanding trait of Tweed has been his advent into the society of the fair. Now he is a confirmed Snake. Who knows how many hearts will be broken!

Of course it ' s Chief in another of his outbursts of play acting. Born with a gift of mimicry, he is unhappy unless he is imitating a D.O., Jo-Jo, or the hot sheik of the burning sands. His famous towel dance is the delight of the initiate. This trait along with general non-conformist principles has resulted in many an afternoon spent with the charming Miss Springfield. " What is the uniform for extra duty? " is his regular weekly " pregunta. " In spite of his curly raven tresses he remains a " Red Mike " except when a certain blonde can be persuaded to come to Annapolis. Ordinarily he is prone to reprimand, in scathing tones, those who return from hops at the late hour — to him — of twelve-thirty. Though not a born athlete, the Chief has made an enviable record in sports through his dogged perseverance. This characteristic, coupled with his natural friendliness, will make him, we know, a valuable man to the fleet in days to come.

This necessitated a stay of months in the hospi- tal and kept him from participation in sports until Second Class year. Then he donned the gloves under Spike Webb ' s watchful eve during the winter months, and in the spring lent grace to the ham-and-eggers with his presence. He entered the realm of romance Plebe Christmas leave, and since then he has had several heart attacks. The latest is a gem from Minnesota ' s woods; but his modesty and reticence deny us the details of this recent " affaire d ' amour.

He made his numerals in track several times, but any further exertion he considered discomforting. Outside of track, his nearest approach to work is singing in the choir. In Academics he has had the same trouble. Though he knew his stuff, there were times when he just wouldn ' t tell the profs about it. Despite it all, though, he ' s never been close to bilging. Outside of all that, he ' s just a good fellow. He seldom, if ever, has been heard to gripe; for he takes things as they come. He can smile when things go wrong, and then turn to and make them come out right. In a pinch he has never failed to help a fellow out; and they don ' t hesitate about going to him, either. His only fault is that things come to him too easily. There are few among us who are as well liked by the class in general, and fewer still who deserve to be so well liked.

The urge to make nocturnal pilgrimages in search " of romance and adventure has always stirred him, but various unex- pected hindrances have deterred him from time to time, undoubtedly causing pangs of bitter disappointment in the hearts of a galaxy of belles. Aquatic sports hold no allure for this lad; in fact he has had a distinct antipathy towards the water ever since Plebe summer. His diversity in athletics is a source of never ceasing wonder.

Such a start augured well for a startling rise to success; yet his career was a very mediocre one until middle age. At that time he prepared as lectures to be delivered at the Naval War College that supreme dictum of naval strategy and tactics, " The Influence of Sea Power Upon History. " Its inestimable value was immediatley hailed by authorities over the entire world; its influence was attested by transla- tions into every foreign tongue. Mahan stands alone as the man who taught the Navy to study and write; his life and achievements have been an inspiration to countless others who have followed him. iiiiiuuiiiiiuiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiuihTiiii I S ' ' d%: -M w v f d -ft iK JS aj b VL y y J M C M X X r X ' .,:, ' ..,.-.,.rT...:rT ..r.r WILLIAM DORSEY BUCKALEW Roanoke, Alabama " buck " " bush " " bill " IISTEN to him hummin ' them blo-o-os " !— and that infectious ,i rin spreads out till it covers his face and overlaps it a full six inches on each side.

His attraction for femininity is unusual. He inspires " mother-instinct " in all women; those of his own age soon discover that they knew him centuries ago, but to no avail; he goes on his way, loving a few but never quite " in love " with any. The most lovable of souls, finding a sunny side to every " rock and shoal, " yet seeing and avoiding every danger, he has won his vvay into the hearts of us all. With a keen brain, an amiable disposition, a love for life and its friendships, and an ever-present sense of humor, he will " go far " whether in the Navy or out. " Oh-oh, Babe! Saved your life.

Without the least reserve or doubt we can say that in the Navy or in civil life he will reach the top of the ladder. The best of luck in the future, Charlie boy, and may you be rewarded with a wife as good as you have proved yourself to be.

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 famous 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 dining out he IS usually serenading the alley. Phil is best at whistling but as that is nonreg, he manages to disturb our peace with some other form of syncopation. He has a natural leaning toward athletics, 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 predict 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 predictions, and has won many an uphill struggle with the Academic Department. Ever a hard worker, Phil has developed into an officer whose service record will speak for the man who makes it.

Ed has a little smile on his face that no manner of hard knocks or difficulties has been able to efface. Plebe year, while boxing with a varsity man, Eddie had his nose broken. Do vou think that stopped his smile? Not a bit. In fact, it served to make it permanent for a few seconds later the varsity boxer had every reason to regret that he had been so rough on his Plebe opponent. Since that time Ed has twice been runner-up for the Intercollegiate Championship in the light-heavyweight class. Ed ' s football career aha-Qgers a wonderful incentive to those who think for any reason they haven ' t a chance. Plebe year Ed was induced to go out for company football. He soon went up to the Class and in a few weeks was up in t ' he Plebe varsity. He was thrown back because of lightness, but before the first game he returned to the Plebe varsity. In the next three years we have watched his play as guard in th ' e avy varsity. He captained the team his First Class year, and ended his collegiate football career by getting a guard position in the All American Team.

The first is a delusion that the textbooks " prepared especially for the use of Midshipman at the United States Naval Academy " contain matter that should be remembered. To that end he concocts strange combinations of syllables such as bompheanilsloshvacku and ordulastiptop — ids o -kev words, if vou please, to make it next to impossible to forget the various kinJs of projectile or the consideration in selecting airfoil. An excellent idea if there were only a wav to insure against the regrettable blunder of using an Ordnance key- word in a Steam exam. The second is a preference for recognition in literature rather than athletics, an ambition that he considers will be realized with the twelfth rejection slip. Otherwise he is a normal midshipman, breaks hearts with a mechanical method that savors of repetition, and savs, " Now, when I was a Plebe " and the " Navy has gone to the dogs " in the proper disgusted tone. He is distinctive for a minimum of false pride, for an enviable unflagging interest in all he does, and for a passion for thoroughness, characteristics that augur well for success.

Following his parents to the thriv- ing Middle West, where they settled near the Great Lakes, he became fascinated by the seemingly adventurous and carefree life of those who follow the sea, and decided to seek adventure as one of the men who command the ships that form our country ' s first line of defense. His characteristic of always seeking something new and different accounts for the story of his career at the Naval Academy. All who know him wonder what he is going to do next. Always a new girl, a new book, a new hobby, or a new resolution. He felt the thrill of writing a nearly perfect paper on a Steam re -exam Second Class vear. This same characteristic that has caused Dutch much grief has been the making of great men of history, and well suits the career he has chosen. Dutch will be a welcome addition to his ship and the fleet. Sports Editor Lucky Bag Black N Log Staff 3, 2, i Sub-Squad }, 2 2 P.O. T ' OT quite four years ago, much after the fashion of his Norse forebears, this fair- headed young gentleman sallied forth from his stronghold in Connecticut to take the Academy bv storm. For four years he has waged war, one which bids fair to be successful. Soon after his arrival, a trip to the hospital taught him the invaluable art of producing the required symptoms whenever weary — though the development of the wrong symptoms finally cost him his tonsils. After much experience handling an unruly roommate and in writing his correspondence in such a fashion as to keep a whole string of blondes and brunettes in a state of expectation and blissful ignorance, he developed pronounced managerial traits. As a result of these talents he soon became manager of the lacrosse team. Nothing ruffles or disturbs him, — not even reports of New Year ' s Eve frolics — nothing hurries him. What if he is shaving when formation goes. " Hurry up, Pete, " brings only this answer, " If thev want me to get there in time they ' ll hold late blast for me. " — Yet he is seldom known to be late. Hard work and intellect stand him high in his class — a stand which would be higher if he spent less rime preparing a voyage on the seas of matrimony and more time in preparing for the seven seas. i " . . r ■ - -L. - M n c c X X I xj |-. fi y-frK--, gjj: , r h ' - ' J ' ' pn .v vj nR i» r x « i A-y ?pT 7g j - WILLIAM HENRY WATSON Pensacola, Florida " bill " " watt " i M C M X X I xT WHAT ' S the assignment in Math?

The tennis and basketball squads have each given him a berth; and, once admitted, Bill refused to be ousted. In Academics Hast is far above the average. He early obtained a strangle hold upon the elusive 2.. 5; and after he had disposed of those formidable foes, the Academic departments held no terrors for him. Full speed ahead.

While not exactly a snake, that characteristic Southern way has won for him a place of admiration among the ladies; and, to their delight, he is usually present at the hops and parties. Every fall a clash with the Ac Department has kept a good man off the soccer squad. But in the winter Bill piles up that old velvet in preparation for the rifle season.

Inclined to the idealistic, he was always in pursuit of the perfect— the beautiful— though he man- aged to make out well with the realistic features or Navy life. In Academics Bill was a potential star man; everything was fruit to hear him tell it, but a lazy Southern nature and his endeavors to help others rather than himself kept him among the 1 P.O. ' s. Judging from his heavy correspondence. Bill ' s Southern drawl and courteous manner must have gone over big somewhere. He could always give a good account of cruise liberties and to all appearances was successful in handling the old Navy line. Proof of his athletic nature lav not in the fact that he was three years captain of the weak squad but in his versatile activity as a member of the teams of the fighting Eighth Company. This was the true Bill behind his mask of reserve. G.P.O. , W4 - -- gj ;r ?rTg I? -- ■m ' r v g.

In answering the call of the sea, Dintv left his pursuit of studies at the Medical Department of the University of Tennessee, but we shall always feel that what the Medical profession lost the Navv gained. For, though it was along in his second class year that he was heard to say he had not done anythmgVor the glory of the Navy, he has, in his way, added some- thing. In athletics he is a wrestler of no mean merit; in classes, while not exceptionally brilliant, he was the steady type that could be depended on to crash through at the right time. Thus did the last rose of Sharon bring a glimpse of old Tennessee, a little cheer, and a ray of joy into our midst. Class Wrest! nig s Varsity 2, i C.P.O. .

It is unfortunate that the academics never aroused much enthusiasm m him; if they had, we are certain that a pair of stars on his full dress collar would have been the result. Always ready and willing when there is any mischief in the air, and yet never carrying his fun too far. Savvy has earned a place in all of our hearts as " one of the boys " ; however, he has never crossed swords with the Executive Department.

On the field is not the only place that Dave shines in athletics; when he misses a hop or anv other affair at which the gentler sex may be present, it is for reasons over which he has no ' control. If he happens not to be dragging from Crabtown he is quite willing to drag blind; and when he cfoes drag blind, some girl is in for a treat; brick or beauty, he gives her a Ime of wit and humor that can ' t be beat, and his dancing leaves nothing to be asked for; he IS the answer to a blmd drag ' s prayer. It is a mystery how he can expose himself so freely and still withstand the attacks of Cupid; so far he has been invulnerable. Not onlv in athletics and the grace of society does Dave show his proficiency; he does not neglect his studies. Proof of this is shown by his remarkable ability in foreign languages, which has at times stood him in good stead; not a bar-tender in the cities of Colon and Panama, no matter what his nationality, failed to respond with alacrity to Dave ' s " Donnezvous toot-sweet two glasses of beer, pronto!

But no — Dame Fortune smiled for once on the Navv, and there came into our midst such a man of parts as has never before been beheld. Pat ' is that rarest of all phenomena — a sincere man and a real friend. His interests are very diversified; secretly he dreams of building soaring bridges and mighty dams, but still takes a lively interest in everything pertaining to the profession of which he is an embryonic member. Academically he is not a star, but always manages to come out well above the " au revoir " line, although it is true that he does have a decided aversion to the Dago Department. One of " Spike " Webb ' s most promising and ardent disciples, he is in his glory flailing the day- lights out of some poor wretch in the most approved Webbean fashion. Also, to see him spring the " hundred " is a sheer revelation. And, now to take another tack, Pat has never been averse to the feminine charms and remains one of the most accomplished connoisseurs of feminine pulchri- tude.

Plebe summer rolled alone and Plebe vear found him slightlv awed bv the requirements of the " Acs. " After the first month ' s ' marks— " Fruit " — and Cosmo replaced " Marks " as a Handbook. Cured early in the year of a penchant for producing informal noises in a trumpet, his frustrated energies turned to a systematic consumption of everyone ' s chow. A firm believer that ball plavers are born and not made, Joie has spent every spring on the diamond; and it is the first sign of spring when he puts in the afternoon loosening up the old whip. There you are! The drags all love him, and everyone ' s his friend. Of course he isn ' t perfect, his knees don ' t meet, his choice of records is startling and varied; but he explains it all with a slow Southern drawl, and you are quite sure it is all right. The Navy line was never thrown with more dash and accuracy. RICHARD CROSS LAKE mav be a by-word in Indiana, but at I ' ecole navale, Dick, Limp, Napoleon, or Cy is the appellation of this Hoosier product. It has often been . said that the number of nicknames a man has is an accurate measure of his standing with his associates, and Dick ' s collection immediately promises his associates ' approbation. At recitations, Dick ' s natural savviness placed him in the very first of the class, although this natural ability didn ' t make him fluent in speaking French. Even though the professors were hurt by his massacre of the language, thev found his ready wit and cheerfulness to be indicative of savoir faire, sangfroid, and other admirable qualities usually spoken of in the language.— Indeed, he wa ' s at once dubbed " Monsieur Lake. " Small in stature, blessed with the jollv rotundity of figure and a cherubic countenance which radiates the genial nature underlying the surface, he has contributed much to leisure hours spent these four years. He has a ' huge grease with those who know him well, because he has an unusual generosity where cigarettes are concerned. He has a weakness for the fair sex but seldom allows them to get the upper hand— that is, not more than two at a time. We see a fine niche in Memorial Hall which has been saved especially for Dick— and we know his heart and mentality will fill it to overfiowing. ■- ' 1-. ' " a . 19 i V riC ' ff ' ■?

He seems to have developed an affection for the salty life, which the efforts of the Math profs, other profs, and even the eye examiners have been unable to curb. The classes were hard, and at times the light dim and distant; but he has proved that the man who plugs along steadily wins. Quiet and unobtrusive. Woody is a man whom one knows only after long association, k is said " still waters run deep, " which is true enough in this case. While he is no angel, his depth of character and moral stamina mark him in crises, making us respect, admire and love him. Humor, balance, and a wide philosophic attitude add to his charms. Woody enjoys life keenly, and when in contact with him, he makes us feel, to some extent, the same. May we know him well in our future careers.

His high school and l academic records are ample proof that he has carried on. Lincoln was graduated J. from the Shaw High School of Cleveland with a standing second to none in his class, and spent a year at Cornell before entering the Naval Academy. Finding Academics to his liking, he gave much valuable aid to his less fortunate classmates, and this with earnestness and sincerity — always a companion of our misfortunes. Wally is a believer in the strenuous life. Through untiring hard work and determination he overcame a handicap in size and succeeded in his favorite sport, water polo. Many times we ' ve caught him in diligent physical training in his room, perspiring profusely. In the end Lincoln turned out to be one of the reasons why water polo is suicide for bigger men. Second Class vear Lincoln displayed his general proficiency in another held. There was a West Coast cruise, a certain someone on that coast; and from that meeting evolved a correspondence that intimated more than a casual friendship. A career so well begun, true friendship, loyalty and a wealth of ambition — these are assurances of a successful future. 365 , " v- 19 ■MS ' ' -¥?

And there is a freshness peculiar to his remarks, born of a deep and kindly understanding of human nature, which makes them particularly palatable. A stockade surrounds the store room of his soul; though some have contented themselves with a restricted view through the chinks, those who have surmounted the confining barriers have been welcomed to share the rich treasures within. For they are there; and they make him our quiet, lovable, enigmatical Cal . Class Wrestling; jQ2g 4 Star 4, Tennis: 1929 4; tzgt }, 2 Wrestling; W29t j, 2 M.P.O.

But when vou know his sincere love of life, the sea, and ships, that never left him, vou see what a happv choice of life work he has made. Withal, he managed to be a practical man. His stav at the Academv is a record of achievement in the things he loved. He has an unaffected enthusiasm for some of the less blatant things of life that leads the unobserving to classify him as eccentric. He loved books: not a Cosmo boner, but possessed of an insatiable appetite for strange and unorthodox tomes. Ski expressed what he absorbed. Three vears he was a welcome contribu- tor to the Trident; the last, its Editor. His liking of music was so whole-hearted he could not tolerate his own violin playing. And, just incidentally, he consistently but vainly threatened to star. Above all, however, he is a wonderful friend. Possessed of an unbelievable incapacity for malice, alwavs cheerful, kindlv to a fault— he gave much of his time to the wooden man- quaintly courteous, requiring little of his friends but exacting of himself. Ski is the best man in the world for a friend. " Wot! Only a pink letter! Where ' s my blue letter this morning? " ■tXJne President Trident Society Orchestra 4, 3, 2 :, Trident Society 3, 2, i 2 P.O.

His nature is not one that immediately makes an im- pression wherever it chances to roam, but with each new contact his name and ability is noted and remembered. Now we find him in the upper strata of the class, a marked suc- cess, a three-striper, and ready for the fleet. Life here has been interesting, active, and not a little laborious. Wrestling supplied the chief diversion, with some soccer and lacrosse to keep him fit during the warmer seasons. Tennis and golf are favorites, too; the remarkable thing is that he displays a marked degree of skill in each type of play. He likes to read newspapers, run Plebes, dance, play bridge, talk, and eat. Girls? Well . Forcefulness and purpose are dominant characteristics of his nature. Initiative prompts his actions, but never impulse; everv voluntary move has a sound reason behind it. He is an earnest student, a tireless worker, a social asset, and a much-desired companion. Friend- ships are highly treasured; though they may not be as abundant as the stars, they are as steadfast and true. He is ambitious — for others as for himself; his intimates are certain of the fulfillment of those dreams, and join in wishing him the best of life, love, and happiness.

At first, Charlie found things so vastly different from his home life that he had to work hard to adjust himself to the new conditions. However, it was only a few weeks before we all began to realize that he was a real man and a wonderful companion, i . 0 Plebe summer found him making friends among the fair ones of Crabtown. The Don ' s success on the cruises can be readiTy determined by a glance at his locker door or letter file. His energy has been expended in bettering conditions which exist here and elsewhere. He soon realized that he was not to be a station the athletic field, but he has proven himself a star in academics and militarv administration, as well as in many literary and musical clubs. The winter always found him dusting off his clarinet and joining the ranks of the Naval Academy musicians. As a result of his hard work he reached the top in musical organiza- tions, just as he has done in all other things with which he was connected. We admire " Don " as much as the femmes love him; and our confidence in his ability to do things correctly may be shown by the phrase " Let Charlie do it. " Truly he is a man Whose character is gentle, and one who will always prove himself a real officer and gentleman.

In this respect he has one weakness his California is a subject on which he will talk and talk, with the fervor of a revivalist and the persuasiveness of a Scotch pawnbroker. Ray cannot be called an avid student and l}e is a stranger to most first sections. This, we feel, is not due to a lack of native intelligence but to a lack of zeal in his make-up. He does not pursue fame, and thoug ' hts of material honors do not disturb him; though recognition of his sterling qualities may be slow, it is inevitable. A true gentleman in every " sense of the word and a considerate ship- mate, he will prove a valuable addition to any mess room. 2 P.O. i r ™p INDEX FOR BIOGRAPHIES Adamson, F.

Foreword MAN, in all the various stages of his maturity, finds himself possessed of a desire for self-expression in one of its many forms. In a regiment of rapidly developing young men some outlet, some safety-valve, must be found for this expanding Ego. It may lie buried in Music, Litera- ture, in Drama or it may lie in Electricity, Radio, any- thing .... whatever the method of release, it must be found. Thus the extra-curricular activities have become a funda- mental and necessary part of the Academy life, for in them only have certain of us been able to crystallize a half- suspected latent ability, realize a slumbering ambition or pamper a groping creative urge. So, in these few pages, we strive to perpetuate the begin- nings of ourselves .... perhaps our very lives, our des- tinies .... in our Academv-dav activities. I T- - - - The Class of IT WAS BUT three brief years ago that we, the Class of 1950, began our Service careers. Each year since then has seen a strengthening of those deep ties of comradeship which were laid during the hectic days of our Plebe year, which were cemented in the trials of our Youngster Cruise and in the difficult year which followed. It was as second classmen that we began to realize the full significance of this spirit which we had so carefully cultivated. It was then, that we began to see the fruits of our past efforts; it was then, that we were called upon to share with ' 19 the burden of respon- sibilities, to throw the full weight of our support into the activities and organizations without which the Academy could not survive. This was the opportunity for which we had been waiting; and it is not an idle boast but a fact in which we justly take pride that we were called upon and not found wanting. In every part of Academv life could be found the second class giving their finest efforts. Of those forty-four warriors of this vear ' s gridiron " A " squad, no less than twenty-eight were from the Class of ' 30. It was during this year that we became familiar vvith and learned to appreciate difficulties which confront the first class. And it was their splendid example and superb leader- ship in everv field of activity which led us to support them 1 i ■ i ► I ► I L Nineteen Thirty to the utmost. It is with a certain regret that we see them go — their administration has been well-nigh flawless, and it is our earnest wish that they will carry with them into the Service those fine ideals which characterized their first class year. Now we find ourselves on the threshold of the most im- portant year in our Academy career. With First Class Cruise before us, with our long cherished rings in our possession, and with those three diagonal stripes awaiting us, we sally forth with light hearts to conquer more worlds. And it is with a full realization of the present needs of our Service school that we join in a solemn pledge to make the Academy a better place to live in. Let us not sit back and point with pride to our past. Let us rather concern ourselves with the future, and with this last and difficult problem which confronts us. It will be upon our record as first classmen that our record as a class will depend. If we fail in this last duty, the achieve- ment of our past vears will mean nothing. Our course lies clear before us — our long coveted diplomas await us in that port toward which we have been sailing for three years.

President Class of Nine «» WITH OUR Academic career half completed it seems but a day since that memorable moment when we were sworn into the service as midshipmen, yet every day of that time has been an age in passing. Every phase of our life here has been destined to better prepare us for that greater task, the fulfillment of the mission of the Naval Academv. With Plebe June Week behind us, we became imbued with a new sense of responsibilitv; we had proven ourselves fit to go on with the stupendous task before us, and our greatest Plebe ambition, the wearing of one diag, was soon to be fulfilled. Youngster Cruise — our introduction to the life of a mid- shipman at sea — the East Coast and its cynical ports — the suffocating heat of the tropics — the last few days off the blue mountains of Haiti — then we headed north for the last time. Chesapeake Bay — the more-than-welcome lights of Capes Charles and Henry — and early one morning we awakened to see that old Chapel dome materializing out of the mists — we were Youngsters, officially and tra- ditionally. September Leave ended all too soon! A month of pleasure, thirtv davs of falling in love, was followed by our return to the old grind. teen Thirty 1 Our Third Class year marked several radical changes in the government of the Regiment of Midshipmen. A new book of regulations had been published which took from us some of the heretofore accepted privileges of the Young- ster Class. The greatest change of all, and the one having the most effect on our class, was that the new Second Class should not go on the practice cruise but would remain at the Academy for instruction in Engineering and Aeronautics. The beginning of Youngster vear found us busy acclimating ourselves to our new rates, but all hands soon settled into the routine and the year was under way. Princeton succumbed before an unbeatable Navy team. Christmas Leave followed — ten deliriouslv happy days. But after we returned to the barren walls of Bancroft Hall we were confronted by the dreary prospect of five long months until June Week should come once again — until another class should go forth into the fleet impregnated with the training and traditions of the Academy. Two more years must be torn from the calendar of time before the Class of Thirty-One shall don Ensign ' s stripes. May we take every advantage of these two years so that we may more ably answer our call to duty. ► ► i ( O. E. H.AGBERG, Secretary and Treasurer suaaaec The Class of Nine THERE comes a time in the life of every man when the fates decree that he shall become a cup of joy — and so we found ourselves but a few short months ago. When we first entered these portals we were about to realize the culmination of our youthful dreams; then were we linked to our higher ambitions. All our insouciant childness we left behind us in the gay whimsicalities of the outer world. We adopted an oath, and we took upon our shoulders a new burden of traditions, unmindful of the sweaty labors and abuses which we had been doomed to an age to endure. We were prolific in our sentiments of the summer, but they cannot be touched by any expressions we might intend to use to expound them. There was joy in its crowning element — and our potential powers are too miserably impotent to give it a true value in words. In our hearts there is no bitterness — no regret that it is over, never for us to be repeated, merely a blessed reaction of calm and satisfaction in knowing that it was ours if even so short a spell. We were introduced to new thrills. We found ourselves a part of a privileged institution. We discovered new doors of friendship and hospitality which were readily opened to our distinctive position. We took a pride in that distinction, in seeing the Blue and Gold emblem of our majesty flying vic- From Land r-T-T-T- - r- - - T — ▼ T ▼ T dCUUGC auE. i i i i i i i i i i i iyi - ' - - ' ' - -. 3=r T?c; 1 i teen Thirty-T torious above the others. We uncovered an inheritance more precious than riches — that spirit of brotherhood which lends the spark so necessary for the bridging of the years of toil. Christmas leave, ten days of freedom, with its promise of a time better spent — an eagerness to revisit old scenes — re- acquaint ourselves with old infatuations. Those who departed for this, the greatest of our several thrills, were all too happily unconscious in their own good fortune to shed any tears of sympathy or consolation for those fallen in the academic strife who remained behind with such a plentitude of wistfulness in their hearts. For this they are not to be condemned; they earned that right by all the powers within them. Time tied on noiseless wings — more studies — no hours for dreaming . What next? — The first term over! Bulletin boards scanned by hopeful faces. Joy for some; tragedy for others. A number of partings. A new scramble for footing; a new promise of suc- cess — success that wends its way on golden wings out of that black chaotic nightmare, suffusing the way with a peaceful light for those who have but the courage to carry on. We live in the future. The memories of the past have become but a plaintive whispering in our care-dimmed minds. Those visions of a glorious summer have been engulfed by the busi- ness of a new world and lie peacefully slumbering in some recess far beyond human recall.

" But within these two grey walls and two sea-walls, Friday has more significance than merely the day before Saturday, or oysters for supper, though both the latter are undeniable characteristics ' of Friday even as the fact that it is the day after Thursday. For on Friday evening the Log appears. Above the sound of showers, phonographs, etc., there comes the rustle of thousands of magazine pages, testimony that it is Friday, that the next day will be Saturday, and that we have ovsters ' for supper. If you could look into each and every room in Bancroft Hall on Friday eve you would probably see midshipmen in every stage of dress performing contortionistic miracles in donning clothing with eyes glued to none other than the USNA LOG. The LOG has three aims: to amuse, to inform, and describe. The first is accomplished in the orthodox manner of anv college comic. The second is done by publishing Naval and ' orld news of major import and by giving a resiime of all the Athletics during the week. The third is effected by giving— to use a time-honored phrase— something typical of Academy life, that those who are interested may know what it is like and that those who have lived it may the better remember.

Accordingly, back in the now half-forgotten days of Youngster year Twenty-Nine chose the officers for this Lucky Bag. Feeling ran high and midst general acclamation Eddie i3acher and Hugo Nelson took the helm for the class ' s " coup literaire. " Howeyer, the unruly yicissitudes of fortune took Eddie from our helm and John Keatley reported on the bridge to relieve the wheel. Keatley has had a particularly difficult sea to navigate; we found him giving ' his every bit to keep the snaky curves from our wake. As days went on the Bag became more and more a materialized dream. Eddie ' s original conception, almost unbelievable in its complex com- pleteness, has been carried out and now stands, we hope, an open testimony to him and his staff. Athletically speaking, the chief credit is owed to Dutch Richter and his companions of the hard hours. Putting a book of this sort together makes continual demands on one and takes a huge portion of his time from the all-important business of acquiring a last minute class-standing.

It is astonishing how much of the creative work can be accomplished on a cruise — especially is this true of First Class Cruise. Contract details can be worked out in the leisure hours between sketches and Nav notebooks — introductory parts can be written and rewritten midst surreptitiously brewed cups of the renowned cruise " Java Royale, " sections can be planned and half-completed. Generally the whole book can be made to take initial form. Too, the Business Staff found the ports of the cruise invaluable as aids in polishing their advertising campaign speeches and bringing in the first worth- while returns. We take this opportunitv to recommend to those of the succeeding staffs, who may have the curiositv to read this, that they profit by their cruise hours and in turn start things rolling at an early date. First Class year gradually clicked off its slow minutes. The book formed. Finally the last galley was in, the last pictures taken, the last copy o.k.

Berzowski, Presiiienr FOUNDED in 1914 bv a number of midshipmen seeking outlet for literary talent of a more serious nature than that required in The LOG, the Trident Society has striven since that time to interpret to the Regiment and others the spirit of the sea. Those of us blessed with (or cursed with) a facile pen, have in the years since striven to fulfill that mission. " The Book of Navy Songs " is the product of the Society, whose members spent long hours in the collection of the parts of that volume. " An- chor ' s AwEiGH, " an anthology of the verse, serious and humorous, of the midshipmen, also was a Trident product. At present tts members are engaged in the production of a Navy calendar, which will appear next fall. In former years the Society has also published its magazine, " The TridUnt, " in which the members published their stories and more serious verse. The magazine was discontinued for a time, due to lack of interest in the Regiment, but the Society has hopes of reviving it, and carrying on the work as before. Contrary to general opinion, the magazine existed only for a medium of expression for the Society; not the Society for the magazine. In the past it has done good work, and present indications are that it will continiie to do so. there are still a few in the Regiment who like to see their work in print, and who have a genuine interest in the p roduction of literature. These will carry on the ideals and ideas of the Society in the years to come.

Coleman, Director CHAKESPEARE once wrote: " The icorld ' s a stage, And all the men and icomen merely players, " yet some people never know when to stop. Even midshipmen are guilty in this respect, as is evidenced every year by the tryouts for the annual play of the Masqueraders. This year a departure was made from the thread-worn mystery and crime play, with the subsequent loss of female characters, a fact deeply regretted bv the admirers of pulchritude. However, no play is complete without the " cherchez la femme ' ' element, so a compromise was made by including one of the old ladies and a new find, both delightful in their roles. Ladies first, you know; that is why they were brought in, before we proceed further with this recital. " The Devil in the Cheese " — what a strange idea! Truly fantastic and unreal, the devil, of course, but none the less an interesting and deeply involved theme. Through its agency the Regiment became acquainted with a bit of Greece viewed from religious and other aspects. Quigley, a wealthy American, finds himself on top of a rock with his " talkv " wife, his lovesick daughter, Goldina, dear old lick- spittle Pointell, and cockney Chubbock. Of course, like all other Americans, he is traveling for his health, " a famous case — Dr. Bumby lectured about it in Naples. " Incidentally, his hobby is Archae- ology, and by visiting Meteora he hopes to kill two birds with one stone; become a Lord Carnavon of Greece, and cure Goldina of her silly infatuation for a collar ad. Fortunately, if you are optimistic. TT r T T TT T TT T T RADER Asso. Prof. R. S. Pease, Advisor and otherwise if vou are not, Jimmie drops in on the party; his airplane is smashed in the process hut he escapes unscathed. Paternal displeasure descends upon him, yet engagement to the sweetest girl develops and trouble follows. Then an ominous personage, Min, through his trick- ery, reveals to the father the various and sundry quirks in a girl ' s mind when she is in love. Complica- tions come thick and fast wherein a monk becomes a bandit and a fortune hunter becomes a fortune saver. Naturally the two young things are forgiven and Cupid ' s victory is won. The plav ran successfully on Broadway for a year, which really has nothing to add to its superb presentation in the hands of the Regiment ' s Barrvmores, Sarah Bernhardts, Drews, Jane Cowls and such other persons. Due credit, however, must not be forgotten to the men behind the scenes, Asso. Prof. R. S. Pease, the mentor of indefatigable patience, Lieut. O. S. Colelough, the dramatically inclined officer representative, and last but by no means the least, Mr. Shilling of Reading, Pennsylvania, who an nuallv forgets his business and plays midshipman with the rest of us. The Masqueraders have established an enviable reputation which is to be guarded with jealousy as an activity by, of, and for the midshipmen of the Regiment. What praise it has received it is hoped was well worth the effort and the signal success cannot be attributed to the players alone but also to the fine support by the Regiment which greets the presentations with jubilant glee. May the Masquer- aders carry on as thev have done heretofore and ascend to greater heights. i f t l-t . ... - Standing: Heinlein, Jacobs, Franklin, Kaplan, Rounds, Sosnoski, Wesanan, Hubbard, Cohan, Van Meter, Evans, Crowley Seated: Caillouet, McCombs, Gentry, Frank, Coleman, Carver, Schreiber, Hu.nt J a dE a Aa iSidBi i i i !

And if it ' s a sign to tell the world about anything at all, just ask them again. The Juice Gang flatters itself, perhaps, but its members honestly think that they can duplicate any old sign on Broadway ' s white way; and anyone who has seen their products for the Masqueraders and Musical Club ' s shows will agree with them. There is a legend that the boys never work, and it is true that a single socket screwed on means one minute of effort with ten of hot air. (They are all artists at that.) But put up a sign with fifteen hun- dred sockets, dip as manv lamps, figure out a wiring diagram that looks like a Gordian knot, make Hawaiian moonlight out of a few gelatines and an arc-light or two— then you will realize just what this organization accomplishes, and how necessary it is to the successful staging of Navy shows. 1 R. S. Benson, Director THE Naval Academv Ten is the result of a natural tendency of all things in the universe to seek their own. Whenever two or more persons, able to perform upon musical instruments, meet, an orchestra is formed. The Ten had its beginning in this carefree manner quite a few years ago, and continued to play mostly by ear and by copying from phonograph records up until the beginning of the year just closed. The director this vear brought about a radical change when he attempted to make his organization one playing legitimatelv while interpreting popular hits in the style looked upon with favor by the younger generation and used bv the leading dance and stage orchestras of the country. The first few months under the new regime were trying but success was the ultimate result. At present the Naval Academy Ten is suited to ' take its place beside any college band in the country, and the director has often expressed his assurance that should this year ' s members wish to give up their chosen career of the sea for their art, very little time would elapse before the " second Waring ' s Pennsylvanians " would be among the topnotchers. It is not to be implied that the Ten has reached a saturation point. True musicians have no limit. The field of music has no limit and during the coming year further improvement may be expected.

Trescott, Director WHEN the revels of Christmas leave have become mere memories, and the distractions of January examinations are forgotten, the Regiment turns to preparations for a Musical Club show in an effort to produce a record-breaking hit. The Orchestra plays a headUne part in every show, as evidenced by the fact that this organization is chosen to make its presentation first. Naturally, its members attrib- ute no mean portion of the entire show to the pleasant and receptive frame of mind which the audience entertains after hearing the organization do its bit. Practice is long and tiresome, the rewards are few, and all the credit is due the men who patiently strive for perfection in the portrayal of pleasing effects. However, there is satisfaction in the knowledge that labor has not been performed in vain, and music hath its charms for both creator and listener. The Orchestra was verv fortunate this year in receiving worthy additions from the Fourth Class; and this talent, coupled with that already in the club, made a finer musical body possible. Mothersill, the assistant director, and Prien, concert master, rendered valuable aid in the develop- ment of the Orchestra and its program this year. The Executive Department, also, through kindly cooperation, aided us materially in giving to the public a finished show. -f 0. rm Top Row: Knock, Steere, Lewis, Hubbard, Taylor, Schantz, Leverett, Mothersill Second Row: Butler, Murphy, Beer, Trescott, Dorsett, Counihan, Lietwiler, Graverman Bottom Raw: Fenton, Turton, Prien (Concert Master ' ), Br.ace, Rice, O ' H. ndley, Farnham r T £X •▼ T T y ' ' The Mandolin Club T. W. Davison, Director THE MANDOLIN CLUB is a carefree organization that does its hit once a year collectively and all the time individually, to dispell gloom from the Regiment. It provides an outlet for that musical urge so universally found in an undergraduate body. Away back in the summer of ' 18 the Mandolin Club got together on the Utah and effectively ban- ished to infinity the familiar cruise " ennui " by playing in some Sunday afternoon " happy hours " on deck — at times even attaining the impressive dignity of that sanctum sanctorum, the Wardroom. Others of its members who were on the Arkansas played sweet melodies in the immortal skit, " Noah ' s Nick Nacks, " given at Guantanamo Bay. The cruise over, the club called time out until early spring when the cry " General Quarters, all hands man your mandolin picks, " set the dormant souls of this body stirring again. From the stir grew this year ' s show in which the boys aimed at informality and, we believe, beautifully achieved it, for it can hardly be claimed that a group of carefree American art students in Pans enjoying a leisure hour at music are over-burdened with boring conventionality. No reminiscence of the Mandolin Club could hope to be complete without mentioning our two stellar hanjoists, Brunton and Matthews, the Personality Boys. Many a weary hour has been halted and sent on its way by the artful manner in which these two have reproduced some of the better banjo duets.

This vear the Glee Club membership has increased. That in itself is manifestly a desire on the part of those who are musically inclined, but without the ability to play an instrument, to make this year ' s club the biggest and best ever. It affords an opportunity for the non-athletic and non-dramatic element of the Academy to participate in the one last entertainment of the academic year. To the man ever willing and ready to help and cooperate to the fullest in the work of the Glee Club a sincere expression of appreciation is due. From the first rehearsals with their attendant drills and poundings and hammerings right through the entire season to the final dress rehearsal, his efforts and suggestions have been invaluable and most sincerely appreciated.

Find a group of men who, on their watch below, will gather around and quite unconsciously; when conversation lags, start a familiar song — and you have found a clique whose members are, at heart, at peace with the world. No matter how arduous the daily tasks; how irksome the routine seems in the execution of them, if one is able to sing, or sit idly by, rapt in thought or memories, when music, or the mere suggestion of it, is introduced, the cares and hardships of the day are as dreams to be forgotten, and the moment at hand is the one to be enjoyed and appreciated. It is not a new sensation, this spell of music, but one that has been handed down through the ages. Talent comes to the Naval Academy in every form every year. Opportunities are presented at the outset for an exhibition of the particular ability of each singer to the glee club, musicians to the orches- tras, specialists to assigned groups, and gradually these develop as time passes. Flaws are worked out, abilities developed, until finally a stage of perfection is reached in the Academy musical organizations that is comparable to finished talent anj where. Through the medium of the Combined Musical Clubs the host of talent is drawn together and the stage set for the musical treat of the year — the Combined Musical Clubs ' show. Intimate peeps have been allowed into the inner workings of some of the organizations and we appre- ciate the privileges and the pleasures derived. Nothing, however, could have prepared us for the treat in store for us on " their night, " the night of surprises for the Regiment and its guests. Heretofore a theme has never been carried out to any great extent in the production of the shows. This year a definite continuity was selected and admirably carried out under the title of " The Collegians Abroad.

The curtain lifted to disclose Hutchins and his Glee Cluh grouped about the deck of a liner bound for Europe. Well matched voices rendered an enjoyable group of songs, and the Glee Club had once again proven its worth. It was the last night aboard, and the group disbanded with promises to meet on the morrow at a selected rendezvous in the Latin Quarter of Paris. Contributors from each organization formed the nucleus of the next act, the scene being laid in a famous resort of Paris. Specialty acts, impromptu singing, and dancing, and other entertainments suggestive of typical group of American boys abroad rounded out the act very nicely. High lights were the tvpe dances, the comic element, and the accompanying orchestra. In furthering the well laid out plan of entertainment, Davison and the Mandolin Club presented their best efforts in many years. An informal gathering of American students in the Latin Quarter provided the scenic background for a meritorious offering of string music and grouped college songs. As a fitting climax to a truly noteworthy show, the Naval Academy Ten were next presented as the headliners of the Folies Bergere. Passing brilliantly through the evolution of jazz music to the present day conception of well modulated rhythmic orchestration, the Ten were supreme in their setting. In reviewing the show as a whole, it is well nigh impossible to select any outstanding individual performance.

For several years its membership was a first class rate; its location in the chapel such that caulking was in vogue while the chaplain exerted his utmost in uplifting the minds of the less fortunate chapel goers; and its function that of leading in the singing of the hymns. Chants were later introduced in the service and the duties of the choir became more arduous. Then ensued a period in which various midshipmen assumed the duties of choir leader and about which little is known. With the arrival of Assistant Professor Croslev, in 191 9, came a decided change and improvement in the choir — its personnel and work. It has expanded and improved under the excellent leadership of the new choir master and has become an integral part of the chapel service. Its field has increased and the singing of anthems has provided many tuneful topics for rehearsals. This year the choir sacrificed extra time for rehearsals to work up a beautiful composition for presentation to the Regiment late in Lent. It was a cantata demanding an infinite amount of concen- trated effort for its successful presentation, and served as an excellent illustration of the plane to which the choir has risen. « The Choir J J J J J J jJj J i r yr " ? — " T ▼ T ▼■ ▼ ■▼ " ▼ i_i_i COMMITTEES r ' - v vv r- - - Bfa ' T T T T T T T T T T T T T T ?

The setting for the occasion was the famous old Southern Hotel, where numerous other classes have held the annual supper. Its banquet room was decorated with Navy colors, lights and flowers and the surroundings gave promise that the event was to be no disappointment. Needless to sav, it was thoroughly enjoyed, even by the dyspeptics, while fun and good spirits flowed freely. The supper started early and at its close the entertainers appeared. Beautiful girls, superb dancing, and singing, not only from the professionals but from those of us who were so inspired, contributed to the common gaietv. The night was young though, when all was finished. All hands shifted to " cits " and then the fun began. Some went to Washington, others ventured as far as Philadelphia, but the majority remained in Baltimore. It was truly a gala night. We have onlv the most pleasant recollections of the supper — memories which will linger when others have dimmed. Unlike most long-expected events the anticipation did not, in this case, exceed the realization. Standing: Duval, Frank, Schreiber, Cristie Siateii: Keatley.

Not a Y.M.C.A., nor in any way affiliated with that Society, the N.A.C.A. is an organization formed to promote fellowship, not only here within Bancroft ' s walls, but also with the leaders of the civilian world, the representatives of the great outside. We here at the Naval Academy become so absorbed in our own, and other Naval activities, that we have a tendency to lose track of what goes on outside the yard. The Christian Association attempts to, and does, alleviate this situation by bringing some of the keenest men of our country to its plat- form. Thev come, stay a short time, and must go, but we have profited by their visit. These brief con- tacts with the outside world give us nor only pleasure, but, in addition, an added culture. The papers and magazines are not in Smoke Hall as the result of an accident, but because of the N.A.C.A. Several hundreds of dollars of the money contributed by the Regiment are each vear spent in this manner. The financial upkeep of the Association is provided for by the Regiment itself. Briefly, this is the Naval Academy Christian Association. Its only purpose is to foster and promote some of the better things in a fine bodv of men, The Regiment.

Garland, Chu TO THE CHRISTMAS CARD Committee is entrusted the selection of the Christmas greeting card of the Regiment. It must be a true and worthy representative of the Naval Academy and must express thev. ' arm joyousness of Christmas. Under the direction of Chairman G. P. Garland, the 192.8 Committee worked to achieve this. The artist selected to do the marine painting this year was Mr. Manning Devon Lee and the company to do the stationery work, E. A. Wright. The cover of the card contained a sunset view of the Naval Academy Chapel as seen from the colon- nade between Dahlgren Hall and Bancroft Hall. The inner page contained the painting bv Mr. Lee of the U.S.S. Siircitogc7 cruising off the coast of California with three planes maneuvering above. This is Christmas, clear and cheery, as many of us will find it when we join the fleet. This card was the greeting not only to our immediate friends but was sent by the Committee as the official greeting from the Academy to the Fleet, to the people that entertained us on the cruise, and to all those who are closely associated with us and to whom we wished to sav, " Christmas Greetings from the Regiment of Midshipmen.

Deiter, Chairman EVERY week-end and mid-week dav at the Academy finds the Midshipmen entertaining a number of visiting teams who have made the trip to Annapolis to compete with us in some of our manv sports. Making arrangements for the " before and after " game accommodations and entertainment of these honored " guests " then becomes a large-sized affair. And so we have the Reception Committee- envied holders of the sacred elevator and car riding privileges in the Yard. It IS the duty of the Reception Committee to receive every team that visits the Academy and see that it is properly supplied with all the comforts possible, arrange for its meals and for whatever sight-seeing it might wish to do in the course of its stay. The men on the committee have found in it a valuabfe opportunitv to get close to the other fellow ' s viewpoint and through it have found a means of promoting a fine spirit of camaraderie between the student body of these many colleges and our own. In George Deiter the committee has this year obtained an able and tactful leader. We sincerely hope that those members of the " alwavs welcome " teams who have visited us have taken away with them, through the efforts of this committee, only the best of impressions of our Academy.

" Officially, the committee is designed to act as hosts for the Regiment. Accordingly, a member of the committee will be found in the receiving line at each hop. Others are usually, or should be, in positions most advantageous to the welcoming of our guests. One of the heavier duties falling on the broad shoulders of these men is the preparation for the Fare- well Ball. For this far-famed function the members assume the role of a Farewell Ball Committee. As such thev supervise the decoration, programs, invitations, music, refreshments, and arrangements in general. Members of the committee are elected at the beginning of each Academic year.

As years passed, other items of interest and use — to the upper classes as well as to the fourth — began to appear, until today we have a publication that is accepted as an indispensable aid for the year. In it is found the outlook of the year for every sport, with the coaches, captains, managers, and former records; a brief resume of every activity; hints for guidance from the older officers on the sta- tion; the history and traditions of the Academy; pages for recording the year ' s marks; Navy songs, yells, and cheers; useful knowledge about the fleet; bits of fitting poetry; all-in-all a refined scrap book in which are gathered various odds and ends that are spun together to form another line in the smooth " running rigging " of the Naval Academy.

Murray, Chairman PERSE ' ERANCE, ENTHUSIASM, PUNCH— these are the three ingredients which go to make up that intangible something so essential to success which we call PEP. Every winning team must have it. As soon as it is lost the team ceases to win — even may be trampled underfoot by a very inferior opponent. For Perseverance and Punch, we look to the members of the team and the coaches. They best can develop these qualities within themselves. But for Enthusiasm we look to the Regiment. The room- mates, classmates, and messmates of the plavers alone can impart to them the love of fighting for some- thing more than the mere winning — the love of fighting for a tradition. Thus we have the Pep Com- mittee whose function it is to nurse and guide the enthusiasm of the Regiment so as to make it most effective. The Fall " Smokers " in Recreation Hall and Smoke Park were produced for the express purpose of erasing fancied athletic worries by means of talented, well-known speakers and of promoting the vital spirit of goodfellowship so needed to fan a winning enthusiasm.

J. McRoBERTS, Chairman THE RING DANCE is the only hop that has the unqualified approval of every midshipman. It occupies a position of even more importance than one ' s first Army game or first leave. It is supreme and unique among hops, in that one attends for the specific purpose of donning a Navy ring for the first time. The dance is incidental to the occasion. The committee, aided by the Stage and Juice Gangs, tried to prepare Mahan Hall for the event, and was eminently successful. The center of the stage was occupied by a large ring, colored lighting effects throwing it into relief against a very effective drop. Programs and favors added their bit to the success of the evening. The Ring Dance, let us hope, fulfilled its mission. We wore our rings and were more closely welded by the bands of gold into a class — into the Service. We were able to look at the mute battle flags around us with perhaps a little more understanding of their message to us. That night we first became acutely conscious of the Navv and our own futures.

Most of the members are former amateur licensees, and all have had experience in the manv phases of Radio Science. The club offers to those interested in radio all the faculties of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Physics, including the guidance and advice of the professors and instructors. Practical problems involving the construction of transmitting and receiving sets were undertaken during the past year and successfully completed. The club has room for the novice as well as the more experienced man, and should receive the encour- agement of all those interested. It is the only purely engineering association in the Academy and cor- responds roughly to those societies in the collegiate world of which the average student counts it an honor to be a member. Aside from practical considerations, the club is a pure pleasure for anyone having a penchant for things abstrusely electrical. The department kindly furnishes all necessary material, and early in the yearLieutenant Brewington, a radio expert, offered his services which have been invaluable. The club has builded on firm ground and should eventually take its rightful place with other im- portant extra-curricular activities. i ► i y i ► i ► ( ■ I B.i.L R.,u.

J. Frank, Jr., Manager npHE MASQUERADERS and the Combined Musical Clubs have made their business staff the same for both organizations. This was done because the business details of both organizations were so nearly identical. To the staff falls the duty of preparing programs for the shows; getting the midshipmen to sub- scribe for tickets; seeing that the officers are provided with tickets for officer ' s night; and most im- portant of all, keeping a tight pull on any attempt to loosen the purse strings too much. The latter is attested to by a typical conversation between the head of either the Stage, Juice, or Property Gang and the Business Manager. " Say, we need a new velvet drop for that death scene; I ' ll order it and you pay for it. " " Say, what do you think we are, a Gold Mine? Why, we only have about ten dollars in the bank; you fellows ought to know that we can ' t afford to use things like velvet in our show. I don ' t see why you need velvet when cheese cloth costs a whole lot less. " And so on, ad infinitum. The work of the business staff is not seen out in front of the drops or behind the colored dimmers; their work goes on quietly and efficiently because on them depends the real success of the show — Was It a financial success ? And all of our shows have been both stage and financial successes.

CoMDR. Ingram, Athletic Director THE LAST few ears have seen unprecedented prosperity and success in the thletic Office here at the Academy. Revolutionary changes have been undertaken, experimented upon and having proved their vorth become an integral part of our life and surroundings. The Athletic Department by efficient handling of funds derived from dues and tickets to the few games that are charged for has managed to accumulate a fine surplus in its treasury that will be used in the future to finance further improve- ments and expansions. But the marked improvements have not only been in a material way. The Academy morale has im- proved a hundred per cent; sports, seventeen recognized ones, are booming and every season sees many more candidates out for the teams than could possibly be cared for. Interest of the regiment has been stimulated and roused from its former lethargy. Once more we sense a live spirit — that " will to win. " No chance has made this morale improve as it has, no mere freak of gate receipts has increased our athletic financial stability. Rather, scientific and comprehensive budgeting has been used. We here take a page in honor of the two men who have done the most to make this possible, Comdr. Jonas Ingram and Comdr. Payne. Brother of the famous Navy Bill, Jonas has been long familiar to Navy men as a man of action — capable of inspiring in great bodies of men something of his own Spark — the ' ' Old Sixty, " as he is wont to say. Comdr. Payne has a more obscure desk possibly, but not a small measure of the credit is owed him. Back Row: Aamold, Lynch, Pirotte, Delodiisot, Webb Second Row: Foster, Wilson, W. A.

Facing a most diffi- cult schedule, with the strong though inexperienced material on hand, seemed no especially difficult task, but there were premonitions of disaster even before the first kick-off. The loss of Mvles Fox was a blow which could not but be felt by the entire regiment— its effect on his teammates cannot be estimated, then, too, a schedule without an Army game — a small matter, apparently, but of ma]or importance psychologically— early season accidents . In spite of these many handicaps the season was, from a Navv man ' s standpoint ' , one of the most brilliant in years, because although the first three games were lost by close scores the remainder of the season was unmarred by defeat, truly a remarkable comeback and tribute to the fine fighting spirit for which Navy teams have become renowned.

A thick falling mist which at times obscured the goal posts, the inevitably wet soggy ball, a treacherous slippery turf which made open running football almost impossible, collaborated with a powerful out-for-blood Davis and Elkins team to make a complete and dismal failure of the opening game of the season. The onlv score of the game occurred when Joe Bauer ' s punt from behind the goal line was blocked and recovered by a D. ; E. lineman for a safety and two points on the wrong side of the tally sheet. The herculean efforts of the team, especially of Spring and Clifton, in the next twelve minutes several times carried the ball within apparently easy scoring distance, but it was just not our day and the pistol barked at the end of our first game.

Long runs and brilliant passing plays were frequent but spectacular defensive work of both sides kept the scoring aown. After Weston ' s 35-yard run for a touchdown in the third quarter the Navy offense leaped into action. With Castree and Spring alternating at carrying and passing, the team took the ball to the one foot line where Castree apparently went over on a fourth down line buck but was ruled to be a fraction of an inch short. Again the rally had come too late and we had experienced our second consecutive defeat. NOTRE DAME In spite of the two defeats immediately previous, the fact that the Navy-Notre Dame game was witnessed by iii.ooo spectators, the largest crowd ever assembled to witness a football game, proved that the American public — at least the Chicago public — was still with the Navy — and the Irish.

Four times in the first half the Irish were within the ten-yard line — and four times they were thrown back by a fighting Navy line. In the second half Notre Dame scored on a long pass from Chevigny to Colerick. Niemic added a point by a placement kick. Then the Navy started; they had reached the lowest mark of the season and were now on the upgrade. Doggedly the blue clad warriors fought and, in an anti-climax long to be remem- bered, carried the ball eightv-five yards, only to be halted by the closing whistle. The final score was Notre Dame 7, Navvo. Three straight! DUKE Three games in a row, lost by a Navy team; it was unheard of, unbelievable, and yet it was true. The days following the Notre Dame contest were fraught with doubt and apprehensions; gloom was abundantly evident. There was something uncanny in the way games had slipped away by such narrow margins.

WEST VIRGINIA—WESLEYAN After finding itself so completely in the Penn fracas the Navy made short work of the down-trodden West ' irginia Wesleyan team. The West Virginians put up a game scrap and by the splendid work of Rodriguez, their triple threat quarterback, kept up a continual fight but the issue was never in doubt and the final score, 37-0, left little uncer- tainty in the minds of anyone that the worm had turned.

The first half was a o-o deadlock but when the second period opened Johnny Gannon received the kick and ran back through the entire Michigan team for eighty-five yards to the nine-yard line, from where Clifton and Johnny pushed it over. Things looked a bit cozier. Michigan, however, tied the score in the third period after recovering a fumbled punt but their try for point was also missed.

This time he elected to kick — and he did — a placement from way back on the thir- tv-yard line that sailed serenely over the bar and insured victory. Princeton lived up to her tine traditions by refusing to acknowledge defeat until the last gun and was a constant threat in the final quarter. But they were unable to pass the powerful blue wall in their final supreme efforts. Thus, after an inauspicious start, and an early season fraught with heart-breaking reverses. Navy reached the end of the 191.S schedule in full stride, feeling at last the fullest extent of a great, undeniable power which was an efficacious balm for " the earlier injuries to our gridiron pride.

" Chief " Bender returned to the business of tutoring the Navy baseball artists in 15x8 he found facing him the disconcerting fact that of his entire 192.7 team he had left onlv Jerrv Miller, first baseman, and Doc Wilson, pitcher. Ned Hannegan, captain-elect, had played regularly in the 192.6 season, but due to a fractured leg had not once broken into the line-up in ' 17. However, he had a large, hustling squad recruited mainly from ' 30 ' s fine Plebe team and from the class teams, and it was from these men that the Chief hoped to turn out a winner. We moved slowly through the early part of the season losing to Springfield, Vermont, Fordham, and Duke, but during the latter half won a majoritv of the games remaining on the schedule. This was due largely to improved pitching which was in the early spring more erratic than effective. Moore, Brandlev, and Johnson hurled some good games but the brunt of the season ' s work was thrown on Doc Wilson, who had plenty of speed and stuff. :SS 1 • I I 1 1 T T T T Ty n s r T T i_i_i_i_i Tr " T ▼ ▼ ▼ T- ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ f . -r -r T T T T T r T T T -r -r T -r T T T r Out at Fast ri9z8 SEASON In the infield Jerrv Miller, captain-elect for 1919, at first base was the big gun.

T T T T T T T T.r Brainard NORGAARD Bagdanovitch F fc CREW SEASON The return of old Dick Glendon as head crew coach was predicted to mean the return of the Navy to the supremacy on the water which is by tradition theirs. Such was not to be, however. The squad was hard hit bv graduation of 19x7, which had left only three regulars — McClure, Anderson and Bagdano- vitch of the great crew which had pushed the winners of the Poughkeepsie so closely in 192.7. It was true that we had a championship Plebe crew from which to draw but they, as well as all the others on the squad had won with the Butler stroke. Now that Glendon had returned that stvle was to be discarded in favor of the vastly different stroke favored by Old Dick. It was a fair squad which reported to Coach Glendon for winter practice. All of the previous year ' s Plebe crew were on hand along with the veterans of the last year ' s Varsity. Practice started on the machines and in the barge in the old pool soon after Christmas Leave — and the long hard season was on.

The day of the race with M. I. T. was most unfavorable for racing, a cold drizzling rain making the day miserable for the spectators and crews alike while the white caps which covered the bay made fast time difficult. In the first race between the two Junior V ' arsitys, both crews were off to a perfect start. Harry Sears, stroking the Jay Vees for the third consecutive vear, held the stroke fairly high — so high that Tech was forced steadily behind, until at the finish Navy was four lengths ahead.

The Navv closed slowlv until both crews were abreast and then surged slowly ahead. The race continued close and exciting. In the final spurt Navy ' s stamina proved the deciding factor; and the crew came in a victor by a length. The Navv-Penn-Harvard triangular meet took place in Philadelphia. The Jay Vee race was an interesting affair. Harvard jumped into the lead at the start but were nosed out bv Pen ' n — then Penn was forced to drop behind the Navy, who finally won bv a ' length in the fast time of 7-16I. In the ' arsity race Har- vard and Penn both left the Navv shell at the gun. A hard spurt evened up the crews but at the mile Harvard took the lead by a half length, which they held until the finish. Penn nosed out the Navy to take second place. At the Poughkeepsie meet the Varsity race started, Cornell opening with an amazing high stroke, jumped into the lead with Navy, Penn, Syracuse, Colum- bia and " Washington following in that order. This order was soon changed but although the Navy crew got off to an excellent start it was not in front at the three quarter distance. A spurt in the last mile proved futile and Navy finished second to the California Bears. The dav, however, was an excellent Navy day in that the Jay Vees and Plebes both won their races. The favored Navy Jay Vees were given a hard battle by the grimlv determined Cornell crew but won out in a sensational and record- breaking finish. Buck Walsh ' s Plebes took first honors in the Freshman event in a matter-of- fact way, beating the Columbia yearlings, their closest rivals by a length.

FiNLAYSON Ransford Cockle LACROSSE Hedrick Parish The Lacrosse team plunged into the season of 1918 under the guidance of George Finlayson, veteran coach of many successful years. The outlook was not brilliant for the Navy twelve at this time. Although Captain Ransford led a wily, deliberate attack the defense showed plainly the effects of graduation. As the season progressed, however, this defi- ciency was removed and a well-balanced team developed which was destined to play havoc with many an opponent ' s Olympic hopes. Although our team fell short of its Olympic goal the season was a great success. New York University opened the season with a bow to the Blue and Gold. The new Navy team showed great potential strength bv trimming the visitors 7-3, in spite of the hercu- lean efforts of the Violet goalie. Gold.

The Yellowjackets played a fighting game to the end, their last minute rally saving them from a complete shut-out. The even tenor of success continued for the Blue and Gold and Lehigh went down to defeat by an 1 i-o score. The Navy put up an excellent defense which the visitors could not penetrate. Almost the entire Navy squad saw action in the University of Virginia game, when Virginia was completely outclassed by a score of 19-0.

The second round found Navy matched against Maryland while Army played Hopkins. The Navy-Maryland fracas was a repetition of their previous encounter, the Mary- landers again winning, this time by a 6-2. score.

Almost instantly the new coach took hold of this previously inert sport and with unlimited zeal and effort set out to place it once more among the lead-, ing branches of athletics at the Academy. Work started in the fall of 192.7 and the large turnout at the pre-season sessions gave proof that a new condition of track curiousness and track consciousness had been established.

Unfortunately for us the field events did not keep pace with the track for the reason that all the big rangy athletes whom Thompson had hoped to use in this important department were crew men and thus unavailable. Lloyd, captain-elect for 1919, was the leading point maker of the team. His specialty was the hurdles but he was also proficient in tossing the shot and discus. White, Kohlas, and Snow were pole-vaulters who could be trusted to win most of the points in this event. Easton, Johnson, Phillips, and Briner were our middle distance runners while Urquhart.

The next meet was held at Blacksburg where a powerful V ' irginia team nosed us out 65 1 ■r- ' 2 ' n an exciting contest which was not decided until the last event had been run. Georgetown tied us 63-63 in what was undoubtedly the closest match of the year. In this meet White established a new Naval Academy record for the pole vault, clearing II feet, 6 inches. William and Mary, our next opponents, were over- whelmed 105-11. Thirteen first places were registered by the Navy athletes, — impressive and auguring well for the Armv meet. There can be no doubt in the minds of Navy track enthusi- asts that this, the first season under the direction of our new coach, was a successful one. After events in the guise of the sturdy Army track stars proved that there were some vulnerable points in our line-up which we had overlooked in the heat of competition. Taken all in all, considering the depth of the rut from which we had just emerged and the near miracles wrought by our aspirmg young athletes, it was the best season in years. ill .1 i J Baldauf Easton Briner ' " Good Work, Whitey!

During the short season the local course record was twice lowered, first by Ashworth of Duke and then a week later bv Rouse of Navy. Against the veteran marathoners of Maryland the Blue and Gold ran a close race which was won 14-31 by the Old Liners. The Duke team, met the following week-end, scored a sweeping victory. In this race Ashworth of Duke set a new time for the five-mile course. Our first victory of the year was at the expense of the University of Virginia.

There was an excellent nucleus of last year ' s veterans around which to build a strong contender for Intercollegiate honors. Coach Taylor worked hard for three weeks to be able to put a winning team in the field, for the first contest. The season opened with Franklin and Marshall. The team showed excellent form and sent F. M. home on the short end of the score. This win indicated a happy season for the aggregation and gave them plenty of dash, as was shown in their next game. But the next game was a different story, for the champi- onship Yale team came down and took a ball back with them. Yale ' s husky pill hooters showed excellent early season form.

They were disappomted for after the rosin dust had settled on the ring the Navy had a 5-2. advantage. Four bouts of the evening went into extra rounds and it is to be noticed that all of these overtime bouts were taken by the well conditioned Navy athletes. Our ancient rivals, Penn State, arrived on the following Saturday to wreak vengeance on the team which had nosed them out so often in previous years, but thev were easily turned back.

Although reverses were suffered the season cannot be reviewed without the realization that it was a success. Ashford, with an undefeated season to his credit, and the rest of the team, are to be commended. One cannot help but admire Crane, a hundred and seventv-five pounder who wrestled heavyweight.

In the Natatorium, while a defeat may not seem to the political observer so dangerous to our national welfare, still it assumes, in the eyes of Coach Henry Ortland and his hard-working mermen very considerable propor- tions. Fortunately, they are not commonly experienced in these days of brisk competition, although they are not unknown. The team of 192.9, although lacking any one great star, was fortunate in producing several excellent and consistent point winners in Phillips, sprint star, Crist, breast stroke artist, and Lucas, plain and fancy diving.

The team met in the course of its season the swimmers of C.C.N.Y., Rutgers, Pittsburgh, Yale, Penn, Columbia, Dartmouth, and Princeton. The last two named were encountered in successive days away from home. The strange pools and the length of the trips apparently had no good effect for both of these meets were lost by narrow point margins. Losses by the graduation of 192.9 will not be great. Coe, sprint star, and Captain Ray Crist are the only members of the team graduating so the prospect for a winning team in W.4LKER L ' 1020 is very 93 ffOod.

After a few short weeks of practice. Coach Foster was ready to open the season with the strongest team in Naval Academy history. C.C.N.Y. and Rutgers, our first two opponents, were defeated easily. Then came Yale, for five years supreme in Intercollegiate circles. The meeting predicted to be the most interesting in years started with a bang when O ' Beirne swam through the entire Yale team to score. Other scores by Hayward and Ruddy soon followed.

Columbia, Princeton, Syracuse, and Dart- mouth were defeated in that order and Navy ' s first unde- feated water polo schedule was complete. From a team of such quality it is difficult to select one star. With the help of Ruddy and Hayward, O ' Beirne was high point scorer. Captain Twohy, strongly flanked by Huff and Johnson was a sturdy barrier on defense. Coach Foster deserved great credit for the manner in which he brought the Navy its first Intercollegiate victory.

And quite rightly, for the sword is essentially an officer ' s weapon and its proper use is a thing in which all midshipmen pride themselves. For that reason the victories and defeats of the Fencing team are watched more critically by the entire regiment than almost any other winter sport, although attendance is necessarily limited. Fortunately the record made bv the 1919 team, although not a sweeping series of successes, was such that it left no doubt as to the quality of our present dav duelists. A large number of experienced men from last vear ' s varsitv and a good representation from the previous vear ' s Plebe squad were the raw material which our excellent coaching staff, consisting of Mr. George Heintz, M. Delodirot, and M. Pirotte, assisted by Lieutenant Calnan, turned into a win- ing organization.

Some of these meets were against the very best American Fencing Clubs whose rosters included champions of almost every country in Europe as well as in America; against these we could not expect to win more than a fair percentage but the results of every meet, even those which we lost in the final aggre- gate, were very gratifying. Against our collegiate opponents we fared very much better, N. Y. U. being the only college to out-score us. It is to be hoped, however, that we sha ' be more fortunate against our metropolitan rivals in the season ' s grand finale — the Intercollegiates. The team composed of Grant, Howard, Steere, and Wait, foils; Ellis, W ' ilson, epee; and Eller, Loomis, Mvers, saber, will be hard hit by the graduation of the class of 192.9 but the large supply of good material which will be available make the prospects for the next season verv bright.

This season again found us in the ranks and although we again breezed undefeated through our season we must admit that this expedient had a very beneficial efl ect on the sport. The schedule which contained such formidable foes as Ohio Wesleyan, Temple, Princeton, M. I. T., and Dart- mouth was one of the most difficult which the gymnasts had ever been called to face, but the manner in which they overcame all opposition was very gratifying to Navy followers.

Captain Adamson ' s fine performances on the side horse have always resulted in a sure first place. He is beyond doubt the finest gymnastic equestrian in intercollegiate circles. Hughes ruled supreme on the horizontal bars throughout the season. Lockwood and Steiner divided honors on the Hying rings, although Steiner seemed to have a slight edge. Gushing and Palmer on the parallel bars and on the tum- bling mat turned in fine exhibitions. Galbraith, due to his consistent victories on the long rope and his world-record shattering performance in the Dartmouth meet stands out as the biggest star of the year, not only in the East but in the entire gymnastic world.

This brought about an unusual situation when the Navy Seconds outshot the ' arsitv, taking second place in the Intercollegiates. Little was awarded the Individual Championship in this meet. Navv won their initial match of the season from George Washington. The meet was featured bv five possibles in the rapid fire stage. Our first set-back occurred at the hands of the D. C. National Guards in a close match. This was followed by another defeat, this time by the veteran Quantico Marine team. The last match of the season, against the 71st Regiment of New York National Guard, which was to decide whether or not " Little David " remained in Dahlgren Hall, was won by Navy.

Deyo Officer Keprcstntativt Golf— the rich man ' s game— but why is it that every Wednesday and Sunday afternoon there is a steady stream of Midshipmen, who dash to the golf course after drill and formations in order to be the first to start out? TheClass of 1919 has taken greater interest in golf than any class heretofore. In fact, conditions on the small nine hole course have be- come so crowded that it almost endangers one ' s life to play. In spite of this obstacle, a golf tournament was planned out by Mr. Roach, the professional coach, which consisted of three groups. Each of these groups was made up of sixteen men. There were two flights and a championship flight which enabled everyone to play more than one round. A loving cup and several prizes were donated by Mr. Roach, adding much keener competition to the tournament. The Athletic Association aided the growing interest in golf by obtaining Mr. Roach, a pro- fessional, from the Elkndge Country Club. Mr. Roach IS a well-known golfer throughout the East. He won the Maryland State Championship in 192.6 and was winner of Mid-Atlantics and Maryland Open in 192.8. Together with being a great player himself, Mr. Roach is a good teacher and aided by Lieutenant Commander Deyo has placed golf on a higher basis among the Midshipmen than it has ever reached before. The undergraduate credit for the expanding interest in golf may be laid to the present commit- tee for golf. This committee is composed of Mid- shipmen Watson, Garland, Twohy and Patrick. It is hoped that in the future the playing scope of the Midshipmen will expand with their growing interest. It may be confidently predicted that the Naval Academy will take her rightful place in Intercollegiate Golf circles in the next few years The chilling frosts have passed away The call of spring is here, We ' ll soon be out on the links all day And miss our meals I fear. I ofttimes wondered in days gone by How folks could golf all day, I know now well and that ' s no lie Just where the reason lay. I laughed at the hours that some folks spent Hitting that little pill, And now I hustle out hell bent To get that same darn thrill. The feeling ' s getting in my blood — My fingers ache and twitch, A keen desire is at its flood To grasp that driving switch. Each night I take a practice swing And then I wonder why It could have been, that ' till this Spring I let that thrill go by. I " " . - - ■■■--_ »yf. w 1.,- - .

Disagreement as to just what constituted eligibility caused the break which, regrettable as it may be, was inevitable due to the widely different athletic policies of the two administrations. The fact that it marked the end of this classic series increased rather than diminished the spirit of friendly rivalry between the teams. As a result these contests stand out as three of the hardest fought in the long history of Army- Navy games.

Entering the meet prime favorites to win the Army supporters were given an earlv scare when the Navv sprinters finished one, two, and three in the cen- tury. This lead was slowly lowered in the following events and when the track events were over Army led 39-56.

The high-powered Armv offense started the scoring and ran up a 5-1 lead before the Navy got started. In the second half Shorty Ransford led his Navy warriors in a fierce " onslaught on the Armv goal which was successful in giving Navy a 4-3 lead. With only two and a half minutes to play O ' Keefe of Army again tied the score. In the last gruelling ten minutes neither team could gather enough strength to break the tie; so the game ended, 4-4.

FOR nearly twenty years Westinghouse has been building reliable propelling machinery for the United States Navy. Beginning with the pioneer geared turbine installation in the colHer Neptune in 191 1, Westinghouse has equipped with propul- sion and auxuliary machinery naval vessels in practically every class from submarines to dreadnaughts. Among the more notable of these installations now in service, which include more than a score of destroyers, are the geared turbine scout cruisers Cin- cinnati, Milwaukee, and Omaha; the turbine electric dread- naughts Colorado and Tennessee, and the fleet submarines V-5 and V-6, now building.

SCHOOLS and colleges alike are velcoming the ne v Schrader No. 5896 Athletic Ball Gauge. 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 tvithout disconnecting pump hose. A. SCHRADER ' S SON, Inc., CHICAGO, Toronto, Brooklyn, London chrader Makers of Pneumatic Valves Since 1844 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.

II .ERFECTioN IS an elusive quality, a goal for which we all strive, but which few of us are permitted to enjoy. It is for this reason there- fore that we feel proud of our part in designing and engraving the 1918 " Lucky Bag, " decribed by Mr. John P. Paulson of College Humor, one of the committee which adjudged the " Bag " the best 1918 annual, as ' ' a perfect engraving and printing job. " We are not unmindful of the part played by our fellow Craftsmen, The DuBois Press of Rochester, New York, the printers, and the J. F. Tapley Company, of Long Island, the binders, in the building of the super-annual. To Midshipmen Ralph K. James and J. H. Brett, Editor and Business Manager respectively of the 1918 " Lucky Bag, " we extend our heartiest congratulations in the fulfilment of their ideas and dreams for a " perfect Lucky Bag. " BUREAU OF ENGRAVING, INCORPORATED Builders of Annuals of Distinction ' " ' MINNEAPOLIS 53 f igzS Lucky ' ag WINS ALL-AMERICAN CONTEST AS BEST ANNUAL OF 19X8 .HE 1918 Lucky Bag of the United States Naval Academy won the All-American contest sponsored by The Scholastic Editor for the best Year Book. The following committee voted unanimously: Mr. Lewis M. Pryor of The Pryor Press Mr. John P. Paulson of College Humor Mr. Edward G.Johnson of J. M. Bundscho, Inc. We quote from their letters : " The very high quality of the Lucky Bag was achieved by having craftsmen of real ability do the work. We, at The Pryor Press, have been very close to the school field for many years through our school poster service ' From time to time we have noticed many Annuals and often we have gritted our teeth at the poor printing sometimes displayed. The color work, com- position, make ready — and everything else concerning the printing of the Lucky Bag — left little to be desired. " — Lewis M. Pryor. " The 192.8 Lucky Bag which won the pri2e as the best College Annual in America, won that prize because it was most excellently printed and planned. Our art director, Mr. Tom Burroughs, and myself went over some of these Annuals and in our estimation the Lucky Bag was the best all around Annual we had seen printed for some years. The cover was attrac- tive, the printing was well done, and there was an excellent use of color — just the right amount. In our estimation it was a perfect engraving and printing job. You certainly ought to be congratulated for printing this Annual and also I notice that you have printed other Lucky Bags which have won prizes. " — John P. Paulson. " There was never any doubt in mind as to the position of the Lucky Bag. It was far superior in most every manner to the other books submitted. In fact, it was a treat to go through it, and note its genuine thought and careful workmanship. It stuck out against the field so that it was not a difficult pick. " — Edward G. Johnson. The DuBois Press shares this honor with the Bureau of Engraving of Minneapolis which designed and engraved the Lucky Bag and the J. F. Tapley Company of Long Island City, the binders. In fairness to all concerned The Du Bois Press feels that Midshipman Ralph K. James, the Editor, should have major recognition. His won- derful work in heading up a versatile staff was outstanding. He practi- cally created the ideas around which the book was designed and built. THE DUBOIS PRESS ' T OCHESTER, ? . Y.
