From the very begin- ning the prows of ships have cleft the oceans on errands destined to write the Prologue to and the Story of our great place in the sun. By Way of the Sea came discovery. That was an omen. By Way of the Sea came colonization.That was a prophecy. By Way of the Sea loomed also the threat to our happiness. That was the call to national integration. And thus, against the background of prophecy was fashioned the nation that became the magnet of the hosts who sought to tread the peaceful and constructive paths of life. Thus, ever pursuing benevolent aims, our national destiny rode on. And though our colors have never been struck in defeat, history does not accentuate America ' s great- ness in terms of military glory. Rather has greatness come to her in a larger H THE SBA sense, as a benignant power, diverting her vast energies into those broader and more purposeful channels that tend to serve the better interests of the world at large. How America has helped to shape important world affairs is a story that needs no retelling. Yet our Navy is so closely linked with the writing of this story, that the editors assume the privilege of recounting pictorially, in the pages that follow, a few of the inci- dents by which the Navy has rendered service of international import. By Way of the Sea, America has done much to free the tradeways of the tyrant; to explore the unknown; to enrich the store of human knowledge; to bring order out of chaos; to pro- mote peace. Taking inspiration from these great and useful services that are now become history, our Navy stands ready and eager to participate in the greater destiny America is yet to fulfill — By Way of the Sea. 5he " constitution I C the squadron en£ - Tripolitan pirates. HE " CONSTITUTION " , under Commodore Preble, was the flagship of igaged from 1801 to 1804 in the war with the ipolitan pirates. The little navy of the United States paved the way for the freedom of the Mediterranean, sounded the death knell of piracy in all seas, and taught the Tripolitans that the new nation across the sea had developed a long and powerful arm. N 1853, Commodore Matthew Calbraith Perry in his flagship, the ( Mississippi, anchored offUraga, Japan. By matching dignity and color ) with greater dignity and more color, the Commodore gained for the white races of the world the respect and commercial amenity of the Japanese, and also enacted one of those dramatic scenes in American his- tory which repay in memorable experience the real debt to the naval officer. £ t DMIRAL MATTHEW FONTAINE MAURY, visioning in the trackless -» ocean countless paths of many ships, devoted his life to the realiza- tion of a broad dream of those paths plotted and that ocean track- less no longer. On paper, he blazed the trail of navigators, and his fertile mind brought forth the first revelation of the secrets of the sea to masters who had hitherto groped blindly on a friendless ocean. " ONG NIGHTS, lighted only by the weird Aurora Borealis; silent stretches of uncharted ice and snow; everywhere the vast unknown. Thus the call of adventure and a thirst for knowledge resulted in Commander Peary ' s efforts to reveal to civilization what wealth of wasted land or lore the Arctics had to offer, and the subsequent discovery of the North Pole. £ " T )EAR ADMIRAL MARK BRISTOL, as United States High Commissioner fy to Turkey and American Delegate to the Lausanne Conference, _, did more than any other man to clarify the turbid waters of the Near East and to allay the sufferings of a disaster-stricken people. Out- spoken, tolerant, and keen, his accomplishments in Turkey rank him with the world ' s famous diplomats. , Y means of an ingenious system of radio telegraphic bearings, the positions of enemy submarines were accurately plotted in the Convoy Room, and the convoys directed to steer clear of the areas where the submarines were known to be operating. Thus the entire American Expeditionary Force was transported to France without a single loss from submarine depredations. ESTROYER SQUADRON 38 of the Asiatic Fleet, United States Navy, was dispatched to the scene of death and destruction subsequent to the Japanese Earthquake of 1923. The humane work performed by the men of this squadron, in the face of innumerable trying experi- ences, proved perhaps the greatest single example of one nation ' s attitude toward another in a time of national distress. C YESTERDAY, by ship and dogs, ever northward; today by ship and V airplane — ever southward to the ends of the earth, the Colors of the ' United States are borne in search of knowledge of the Unknown. Wh ile Science pursues the quest in the homeland, Commander Byrd carries the fruits of Her genius into far places, laboriously weaving into the somber pattern of the Service its essential background of tradition.

Battle, Deem, Barleon, Snyder, Schumann, Cooper, Hempstone Executive Department FOR the first three years it seems that " Name and Initials " is the only contact that the average midshipman makes with the Executive Department. Often has it been the misfor- tune of every one of us to squirm somewhat under this " outward and visible sign " of " the powers that be. " Later we find that their task is not merely that of a policeman. The advice and counsel of one looking back, with the judgment and maturity of years at his command, have often proven invaluable to the first-classmen. The Department ' s task is stupendous. In the short time allowed them, there is barely time to mold our characters into military forms. In their sternness, we feel their iron, in their decisions, we feel their justice. To accomplish this objective, they must be both leader and driver, for where one fails, the other may prove effective. How well they succeed in their mission, the history of the Ameri- can Navy has shown, — for the heroes therein and makers of its traditions have been at different times both midshipman and duty officer — follower and leader. .cwcwcwflfc. cw tKCK tw Page Forty ■ • ' ■ ' ■y: : ' 1 I II MHMMp|MM?n ' l 1 ■ 1 MW • ..... - , - THE REGIMENTAL STAFF H.

To some, merely a bit of brilliant sword play, . with the fierce joy of a good fight. To others, an unending struggle for the bitter inch, and devil take the hindmost. There is none of us who has not fought, few who have not bled, and alas! many have died. And the four years have been punctuated with farewell handshakes and " Hard Luck, old man! ' But the " Little Red Book " and the bulletin board at Saturday noon do not complete the picture. " Through the smoke and flame " have arisen that " groundwork of educational fundamentals " that is one of the most vital points of our Mission. To none is the future of our Navy more truly en- trusted than to the minions of " Johnny Gow, " " The Jolly Juice Department " and the rest. With all their unfordable " Rivers, " they have not failed. The Mission is being accomplished. But — the battle rages on! Page forty-seven i s p } } ) ) Back Row: Youngeren.

One sure way to gain and hold their respect is to be a seaman. In these days of Java for grog, and tea-cakes for dessert, this is a somewhat difficult task for the young officer. The patient efforts of the Seaman- ship Department to indoctrinate in us an immediate and automatic reaction to " Div Turn Three " on the flagship, and the one correct procedure at the cry " Man Overboard, " have seemed fruitless at times but nevertheless have been effective. Their continuous repetition of the " rules of the road " have often proved the difference between safety and an overwhelming sea tragedy. The wily maneuvers of the German war lord at Jutland saved his fleet, just as the equally skillful evolutions of peacetime have often prevented dire de- struction. The Naval Officer owes it to those who unhesitatingly place their confidence in the man-on- the-bridge, and serenely slumber through the raging storms, to de- velop his proficiency in seaman- ship, until good seamanship be- comes instinctive.

Patterson Ordnance and Gunnery A haughty caravel, laden to capacity with treasures of India, lum- bers over the horizon. The bark of a cannon, the whirl of a round shot, the crash into splintering wood — fear, insensate, overpower- ing — and the castle of the seas surrenders its plate to the bark of a gun. Small wonder it is that ordnance has played such an important part in history. Today its importance is even greater than before. Each mighty monarch of the seas is but a floating platform for its guns. Range, deflection, drift, synchronism, convergence and muzzle velocity are familiar words to the Naval officer. He is the foremost authority on ordnance in the world. The hurried study of guns and shells that the Department of Ord- nance offers and the detailed work in Ballistics and Fire Con- trol have served to put him in that place today — it gives a groundwork and foundation on which to build. " The shots that hit are the shots that count, " echoes through its instructions, and the inter- minable drills of peace-time are but the preparation for the " shots that hit " in battle. Comdr. W.T.

MacFall Head of Department Navigation As long as ships continue to sail, and winds, tides, reefs, shoals, bars, derelicts, icebergs, and other ships rear their heads to menace them with disaster, navigation will always be of prime impor- tance. A chart, a sextant, a chronometer and dividers are the weapons that an officer must employ to combat their ravages. Stars of the sky are converted into sign posts, and the flashing signal of a lighthouse speaks distinguishable words: — results of instructions gathered from the Department of Navigation. Theoretical Navigation — the reason for it all — the numerous tricks of the trade — accuracy and neatness, are thoroughly stressed at the Academy. Practical Navigation — just how each detail is carried out — day after day of routine work — actual navigation and de- termination of position is ac- complished on the cruises. In war, ships must arrive at their destination at the proper times; they must be able to traverse seemingly impassable waters. In times of peace, they must per- form the same duties but in ad- dition thereto they must learn the intricacies of hydrographic sur- vey work. i I ' age Fijty Back Row: Flaheriv, Farrell, Keeth, Warren, Jones, Colvin, Cooke, Read.

How well they perforin is a test of how thoroughly the principles of engineering have been indoctrinated into the embryo officer by the Department of E. A. Peace brings an equal test in the Engineering Competition and the yearly " score " of this departm ent. Engineering is a vital part of the ship. Recently a new factor has been brought into play with the advent of Aeronautics. The same officer that previously designed boilers must now turn his at- tention to airplanes. The first " all metal " airplane, the first " amphibian, " the first rigid dir- igible as well as the new " all metal dirigible " were products of Naval Officers — tangible proof of just how well this de- partment has performed its mis- sion.

When the Levia- than was docked bv Naval constructors, no plans or means of deter- mining the contour of her hull were available. Mathematical compu- tations alone proved the means of bringing it safely to rest on the giant supports in the dock. Calculations of the structural strength of dirigibles can alone prevent such disasters as that of the Shenandoah. In the naval officer ' s career he will constantly encounter that grim monster of his midshipman days — Mathematics. The hideous — s of that time become fa- dx miliar playthings. The " slip- stick " becomes mightier than the sword. Mathematics will prove its worth as forcibly in peace as in war. The Naval Officer en- ters every phase of endeavor, employing as his chief weapons the repeated formulas and equa- tions expounded by the Depart- ment of Mathematics. , 5 o » . . » » a » a iK r.ige Fijty tun SAMPSO ' " gmt.

Slow but sure, its progress in the Navy has been without hesitation. Gradually, year by year, more electrical appliances have been embraced. The latest ships, including the aircraft carriers, are all electric drive. The click of a switch moves forty thousand tons of steel. The magic wand of the fairy story princes had no such power. To control this mighty means of propulsion, men thoroughly versed in the mystery of electrical machinery are necessary. The balancing of chemical equa- tions, calculation of gravity ' s strange attraction, connections in switchboards, the peculiarities of A. C. current, and the obscure and inexplicable reactions of radio are all a part of our train- ing. The Navy must continue to lead the field in electricity and it is with this aim in view that the Department of E. E. P. assumes its full importance. Capt. W. L.

Alden Head of Department All the clever suavity of speech characterizing the diplomatist, all the conciseness and decision associated with the man of action; the ability to express an opinion on any subject in language that makes it interesting, are considered by many as the natural birthright of the Naval officer. Whether this is true or not rests with him, his con- science, his God and the English Department. And the duties of the English Department in this case are multifarious and varied. Its first aim is effectiveness. Every statement, order or report must be effec- tive, concise and to the point. The Navy has a horror of " beating about the bush. " Then the De- partment must impart a back- ground of world history, naval tradition, and a thorough knowledge of and interest in current events. To this back- ground is added a " working " vocabulary, to give his writings strength, and varied gleanings from the fields of higher litera- ture to give it polish. Above all, its object is to so equip the midshipman that it may never be necessary for him to make the statement " Unaccustomed as I am to public speaking " — iininiiiiin tl ITIl-IIIT- " " ¥ iniTifr— , w - - - • 9 . « M KiW iKCWtW tWCW Page Fifty-four Back Row: Maigret, Nold, Thompson, Hillenkooter, Arroyo, Martin, Cooper, Caskie Third Row: Sewell, Starnes, Pullen, Jordan, Fournon, Bluestone Second Row: Purdie, Kirby-Smith, Barbaro, Fowler, Winchell, Lajoye Front Row: Fernandez, Lusk, Hoey, Beauregard, Ware, Plirsell, Olivet Modern Languages NOT " a touch of misery, " but a common language, " makes the whole world kin. " The Department of Modern Languages, however, has furnished us with a touch of both. Wherever statesmen gather, wherever tamales are served, there French or Spanish will be the language of the occasion; and it was with this in mind that they gave us a " speaking acquaintance " with " Poor Polly Francais " and others. In this day of rapid transit, international conferences, and East Side restaurants nothing is more fitting than that the Naval Officer should be prepared to feel at home linguistically in any surroundings in which he may find himself. The Department has aimed more at our being " able to say it " than at indoctrinating us with the abstract and abstruse technicalities of syntax. As a result they have equipped us with the fundamentals of a thoroughly practical course in the Modern Languages, and pre- pared us to say the proper thing to the Mayor ' s wife, or order the conventional local equivalent for ham and eggs in any port that we may visit.

(mc) of Department IT is the duty of the Department of Hygiene to see that every officer knows the rudiments of sanitary living and follows the simple laws so necessary for health; all officers must constantly measure up to the standards set. It is the Department ' s mission to instruct Midshipmen in First Aid, Sanitation, and Physiology, from the knowledge that all of these subjects will be forcibly brought before him in later years. First Aid will always be in demand in the service of any type of ord- nance. Sanitation problems confront the officer constantly in the crowded living conditions aboard ship, and for any constructive theories on either of these Physiology will always be the ground work. The series of lectures given and the efforts exerted by this department can form only an incomplete and insufficient outline of the subjects covered; but the chief aim is to stress their importance and act as an incentive for further in- quiry. Hygiene is a necessary sequel to the ravages of the dogs of war. Its importance in times of peace — the constant vigilance and care mandatory in combating the demons of dis- ease — is unquestionable.

Schwab i Physical Training Taval occupation of a foreign port — discipline an unknown word -L | — a naval officer " on his own " in the true sense of the phrase — a place where he must rely on personal prowess alone. Then the seemingly interminable Swedish, the provokingly long boxing drills, the endless hours on the mat, nerve-racking training and regular hours that went into making him physically fit are appreciated. Fleet athletics — every enlisted man looking to the new officer for coaching in some sport — the possible chagrin of the athletically uninterested — these prove the value of Academy athletics. The contacts and acquaint- ances that the " social sports " often create prove their value to a further degree. . A healthy mind can survive but a short time in an unhealthy body. The Academic Depart- ments have the first as their chief concern and the Physical Training Department the sec- ond. They must go hand-in- hand, and one is of little or no value without the other. Good sportsmanship and health are its weapons, and physical compe- tence its aim. Comdr. J. Head of H.

MARVIN HENRY GLUNTZ " Olaf " " Marv " Toledo, Ohio MARVIN, before becoming hypnotized by the lure of brass buttons, had visions of becoming a lawyer. To realize this ambition he spent a year at a small university — one of Ohio ' s many. An- napolis first greeted our blushing hero on June the fourteenth, 1926. Plebedom hampered Marv considerably in his social career, but at the Drake in Chicago his serpentine tenden- cies became at once apparent. Youngster year Marv wore stars, but they have suffered an eclipse due to the fact that our boy managed the soccer team, was a pin pusher, helped out the reception committee, and reported for the Log. But we don ' t remember Marv so much for what he has done, but for what he is. He has his shortcomings and he isn ' t famous for breaking any athletic records. Olaf tells us that he is a candidate for the " Sam Brown belt " and we have visions of him chasing bandits along the shores of the Caribbean. We suspect that the red stripe and blue trousers, with the accompanying attraction of the other sex to the colorful uniform, had something to do with his choice. This embryo leatherneck will see many climes and visit far lands in the course of his pro- fession. Gluntz is a hard worker, industrious and capable. Generally happy, his good humor is infectious, and even the villainy of the Steam department fails to eradicate his smile. We congratulate his future shipmates, and hope we may be one of them. B. E. S. TRIPPENSEE " Trip " " Bruce " " Ebenezer " Toledo, Ohio TRIP had the distinction of being the first man of " 30 " to get by the local saw- bones. One look at that physique and the doors were opened wide. So quickly were his potentialities recognized that he sported a watch brassard the very first day of Plebe Summer. Soccer and lacrosse claimed him for their own that summer, and stories are still told of his ability as a " goalie. " Plebe Year saw Trip eating up the aca- demics. The profs soon got to know him and it was noticeable how respectfully they listened to his theories in math and the allied brain crackers. He got his stars and had them well secured to his full dress collar, for there were to be no fading heavenly bodies in that boy ' s academic Zodiac. He was ever ready to throw aside his Liberty or Post and show a less fortunate classmate how it was done, and rare were the study hours that some one didn ' t " bust " into his room with the exclama- tion " Hey Trip, how ' s to show me how to do this prob? " No one could even call him a " snake " and get by with it. True, there was a memorable ride along Mission Beach at moonlight and that will help out in an emergency: but that ' s about all the records show. But, boy, stand from under when he does fall, for that Story about Babylon will appear like a cheap dime novel. Soccer, Assistant Manager.

' ' That is where this blonde hails from and with him brought a line of talk that even Chesterfield would envy — a line that Chick uses at hops, much to the pleasure of the girl with whom he is dancing. Carefree, easy-going, happy-go- lucky — his nickname " Sunshine " describes him better, as he is always there with his laugh that just kicks ole man Gloom in the pants. " Sunshine " lets nothing interfere with his happy state of mind, even the many trials and tribulations of the Academic and execu- tive Departments have failed to change him; a tree only provokes a laugh, and a week on the ship is another similar occasion. An in- jury in the spring of Youngster year robbed Navy of a promising baseball player and kept " Sunshine " from his favorite sport, and cov- eted " N, " but " Sunshine " laughed it off as his hard luck. Although " Chick " had hard luck in his sports and some of his academics, there is one thing that many, in a way, concede to him as good luck. For two consecutive years " Sunshine " spent part of the summer recu- perating in the hospital while his classmates and friends were enjoving the hospitality of Uncle Sam on one of his palatial summer yachts. " Sunshine " holds a Dlace in our hearts that is all his own. Chick, we raise our glasses high to you. the best of classmates, the finest of shipmates, and the truest of friends.

" Cush " came to us with all the instincts of a " one woman man, " but something has caused a change in his attitude and now — well they are numerous. Probably his change of attitude has been caused by being the possessor of so much of that " indefinable something, " at any rate, he is now found at all the hops — every- where there are women.

Eighty-live thousand dollars ' worth of real estate sold last week. Boy, I ' d like to have the commission on that! " So sayeth Ebb while reading the weekly journal and Review. Ebb hails from Aiken, S. C, and is a staunch supporter of his old home town. A southern gentleman in more ways than one, he has been called the " heartless midship- man " because he has won so many different hearts, only to turn his back on his latest success and begin searching in new fields Not only his looks but his many tricks and moods, which he has been acquiring since his high school and college days, are responsible for his irresistible " line. " Ebb is one of the gifted few. He is " savvy. " Fifteen minutes before classes he glances over the lesson and then is disgusted with himself for only averaging 82%. Like many other people, there is no single sport in which he excels. He plays them all and gives them his undivided attention while indulging in them — a pleasant and worthy op- ponent in any game. Ebb has one characteristic — one which is so inherent in the opposite sex — he changes his mind. Ebb was a true Navy man the first two years of his midshipman career, but, in some wav. the Marine Corps became upper- most in his thoughts. Now he has changed again and " there is nothing in the N-A-V-Y. " RUDOLPH CHARLES BAUER " Thug ' " Rudf " Pall " Jersey City, New Jersey JERSEY CITY crashed into print when it sent us our " Thug " from Lincoln High School via Fordham University. The city on the other end of the Holland Tunnel knew that Navy had a place reserved for a student, athlete, and gentleman, and he ar- rived in our midst the first of Plebe Summer. From that time on, through four years of trials, tribulations, and what have you, the presence of " Thug " was ever recognized by a humorous nickname for some particular per- son or maybe a Pat Rooney by himself. One year on the plebe varsity football squad, and three years with the big blue team, coupled with the very same record in base- ball, uphold his reputation as an athlete. As for the student part of it. his creditable marks are ample proof. We have no doubt that, in the years to come, we will have our " old pal " on the flag bridge, with his four-star flag at the main truck. It ' s a far cry from Jersey City to the China Station, but here, there, any place else, Rudy will be the same old fighter and sports- man. A confirmed instigator of riot and rough house. " Thug " never failed to convince one of his " baby white innocence, " in the hour of trial. , . . With his good nature and his inimitable wit he is the life of anv party. All who come in contact with him know that he can be morally, and physically he is, respected by his classmates and will prove a very valuable and- worthy shipmate.

While attending high school Harvey had instilled in him the inclination to be a wanderer of the seven seas and decided that his roaming start at the Naval Academy, and here we found him on that summer day in June, 1926. Academics never held any fear for " Sun- shine " and he was often heard to remark, " The lesson isn ' t hard today, so I am going to spend this period sleeping. " Many of his classmates wonder how he was able to sleep so much during study hours and yet never fall by the wayside in academics. But, try as they might, none of them was ever able to inveigle Harvey into parting with this hidden and well-guarded secret. Harv used to spend long hours sitting in the Panhandle sunshine watching the ubiqui- tous rattlesnakes charm their prey. By close concentration he seems to have solved the technique. His charm is undented. There is a mag- netic attraction about him as potent to one sex as the other. All about him have at one time or another felt it and will continue to feel its influence wherever His roaming nature leads him. ROY ARTHUR NEWTON " Fig " " Sir Isaac Newt " " Newt " Gainesville, Texas FIG came to Annapolis to see if sea water really was salty. It was, so he decided to stay here and surpass the water. He promises to eclipse Lot ' s wife if it ever comes down to a salinity test. Roy has the happy faculty of always having time to accomplish every objective and then some time left. The latter he spends in pro- found slumber. You can see him coming a block away with that salty swagger developed by kicking horned toads out of Texas sandpiles. He has always tried to tell us that women mean nothing to him, that he is totally im- pervious to the charms of the wily species, but every hop always finds Newt with one of the fairest of the fair and at that not always confining his attentions to the " one he brung. " Newt always gets there by the real way — that is, work; and it is one of his hobbies. Hey, keep quiet, so I can do some study- ing " But, if the truth must be told, our boy doesn ' t waste a whole lot of his time on the books. They don ' t appeal to him and he must have some little recreation. He often threatens to resign, jump in the saddle, and sign up with the rangers. " Sir Isaac " is a true son of the Lone Star State. A gentleman, classmate, friend and com- panion — Newt will ever be " the fair-haired boy " of our memories.

Just a curly-haired towhead either laughing with or at the world, and he claims it is better to laugh than to wear a long face. However, Peter can get serious when it comes to academics, which have always been the shin- ing light in his Academy life. Seldom does a second or more seldom, a third, section ever see him and Lord help them when they do. Even though Pete is a " savoir ' he cannot be called a bookworm, because he can read a book faster than Roosevelt could in his prime and still absorb the contents. Then again he cannot be called a weakling, as he has played on the varsiry soccer team and has adorned several other athletic squads. In his spare moments he participates in company athletics; and, although he is no star athlete, he makes a dangerous opponent, combining, as he does, strength and an alert mind. Pete keeps most of his great talent, that of being able to imitate an orchestra of as many pieces as you can name, for the privacy of the room and entertainment of his room- mates, and at the same time dispenses with the use of the victrola. Pete is famous for making the Gymkhana of 1928 a success when, by dressing as a clown and acting natural, he brought down the house. The fleet will certainly be lucky to receive this bunch of happiness, earnestness and com- mon sense; and his friends and roommates will certainly miss his cheery countenance and good heartedness. ALBERT POSEY KOHLHAS, JR. " Al " " Pin " " Brud " Ardmore, Pennsylvania FROM the dense wilds of Pennsylvania surrounding Philadelphia, our " Al " sal- lied forth to make a splash for himself in the Navy. On the class football team Plebe year, Al, like Lincoln, worked himself up from the lowest depths to the height of fame, and through perseverance and hard work he made his varsity football N second class year. However, this was just one of his many at- tainments. At admission his quiet and un- assuming manner completely fooled the ath- letic authorities and that reverend body never dreamed of the talent that lay dormant. So he started our Plebe year to show them by breaking the Naval Academy pole vault rec- ord, thereby being one of the few lucky Plebes to get an " N " Plebe year and a coveted berth on the track team for the rest of academic life. It is needless to say, however, our superman, unlike a Lionel Strongfort with a weak mind, has never been bothered by academics. Al- though too busy to concentrate on his studies and to be a " savoir, " yet he never draws the " anchor section, " and if anyone casts a slight- ing remark on his intellectual ability he will reply in his own words, " I ain ' t so dumb. " On the surface " Al " is a quiet, reserved chap, with a big heart. His trusting and friendly manner have made him many friends. We know we can depend on our " Al " being a naval officer fit to represent this noble insti- Socrer 4. 3. 2 NA 2; N 1; Lacrosse 4, 3 ; Gymkhana 4, Stripes 1 ; Star 2, 1. 1 : Numerals 4. 3 ; Football 4, 3, 2, 1 NA 3: N 2, 1 ; Track 4, 3, 2, 1; N 4. 3, 2; Swimming 4, 3, 2, NA 3 ; Numerals 2 M.

Hank is just r that at any time, drill or classes, night or day, hops or Salem Cottage — al- ways at large and perfectly at home; with a nonchalance in story telling and love-making that has left its impression from the wilds of Chile to the far points of Maine. Ever since Johnnie entered he has fascinated us with tales of adventure and intrigue, made doubly palatable by his slow, soothing drawl and his vivid powers of description. However, it is not to be gathered that our blue-eyed room- mate is only a gay cavalier. It has been no effort for him to stand well in his class, and occasionally when he has sworn off smoking long enough to lower his times, he is soon performing as a merman in the big tank with a crawl stroke that reminds us of a well bal- anced machine. Hansel buys his stationery for the month with an extra supply of special delivery stamps and envelopes already ad- dressed, for he just knows that they are all going to his Gretchen — and he being an alto- gether likable chap whose life seems predes- tined to happiness, we do not wonder at the size of the return mail. KELVIN LIGHTFOOT NUTTING " Kel " Washington, D. C. HIS love of the sea has brought him to us, and his personal qualities, which seem the more impressive with pass- ing years, have made us hope to have him always as a shipmate. Under a calm assur- ance of manner which one has never seen dis- turbed one finds a love for all adventures connected with the sea, the restlessness of the adventurer balanced by the constancy of the worker — a desire for a life which will take him, whether it be in a sixty-footer or a battle- wagon, into the seven seas, and lead him joy- fully to explore each out-of-the-way nook and cranny of the earths unusual places. Yet off- setting this desire we find a strong love for a home and all its joys. An understanding of life beyond his years accounts for his cheery disposition, the keenness of his humor, and his absolute freedom from the vexations of life which so beplague us all. Kel differs in one respect from the true sailor — his affections are confined to a single port, wherein abides the fairest of the fairer sex. Let ' s squeeze that she ' s a Navy girl, and here ' s luck to them both. Swimming 4, 3, 2 ; Numerals 4 ; NA 3, 2; Gymkhana 4 ; Hop Committee 2 ; Ring Dance Committee 2. Crew, Assistant Manager. 4.

Page Sixty-six k VOLCKERT PETRUS DOUW " Pete " Annapolis, Maryland WE often wonder what they taught at that Prep school in Connecticut which Pete attended before he decided that after all his own Podunk Nautical Institution was the best that the world had to offer, for his methods of study have been the envy of us all. Always in the savviest of sections, a mere glance at the lesson seems sufficient to call to mind something that he had known all along. Particular to an extreme, he has devoted his abundant time to the cultivation of likes and tastes that have enabled him to enjoy a wider field of diversion than is open to most of us. His admirable character, his droll stories, ready wit, and pleasing manners have won a host of friends, both outside as well as in the Academy, as a table which is rarely bare after each mail delivery amply affirms. His popu- larity will be his downfall, we fear, as his chief trouble seems to be fighting off the numerous well wishers who are more than anxious to fill his life with " darling drags " ; and no doubt one of his chief pleasures comes when a special delivery or telegram enables him again to shout triumphantly — " Hurrah, she can ' t come. " Pete ' s claim to fame is not confined to the fair damsels who surround him with their affections. Here is a man at once capable and earnest, a hard worker with a keen insight into human nature. Being a savoir, he bones less than most of us, yet keeps at the top. As for this man Douw, well — they just don ' t come any better. GEORGE NELSON BUTTERFIELD " George " " Butts " Burlington, Vermont HE ' S tall, he ' s dark and he ' s handsome. Not too tall, and not too dark — heaven forbid — but none the less handsome. Butts spent a year at the University of Ver- mont before he got sea fever. It must have been excellent preparati on because he is Joe Savoir personified. While his classmates milled around the bulletin boards getting the monthly bad news, George casually sat back. If pressed as to his marks, he ' d answer with a nonchalant, " Oh, I got a 3.6 " or maybe " only a 3.5 if it was a bad month. " Youngster year he made the water polo table but the attendant ills compelled him to forego a watery grave. He then turned his attention to 150-pound crew and has become as important an adjunct to the first boat as oars and a rudder. Butts holds the balance of power over his two less peaceful-minded roommates and he wields it well. Many a near war has been averted by his diplomatic negotiations, but when he does get rhino — which is not often — " careful, I ' m just a bit sore. " His greatest accomplishment has been stor- ing the corner drug store on the second shelf of his locker in a regulation manner. He has the cure-all for everything, from corns to dan- druff, and has a most professional manner of dispensing his medicines. " Here, take this; it ' s good for what ails you " ; and as none of his patients have died yet, " it " must be. " Know any Phi Delta in the Plebe class?

Still not satisfied with his victories on the track he stopped off at Chicago and took several honors in the national school boys ' classics. Determined to become a naval officer, Bob met and passed the acid tests and started his brilliant career as a midshipman. As a Plebe, Bob was famous for the West Pointer ' s song, " Benny Havens, Oh, " and has been left with the name Benny. Academics never were an obstacle for Benny, always stand- ing well up in the small numbers. Besides being a fine student Benny is a warrior of many conflicts on the gridiron and lacrosse field. He also caught (punches) on the class boxing team. He has the good old Navee fight that we all like so well, for he can win in any fray if he makes up his mind to do it. The fair sex have never occupied a promi- nent or necessary place in his life. Stag hops have been his joy in life and D. O. ' s his afflictions. But on Sunday afternoon, Benny is always seen with one of his many crabs. As a companion and wife. Bob cannot be equaled; a roommate who always designates everything as " ours, " if they don ' t belong to him. And when it comes to chasing away the gloom, there are none better ; he can work and smile at the same time. " These barbers will make me bald yet.

" Joe " New Castle, Pennsylvania LATE in Plebe Summer this light-hearted lad appeared in our midst. Knowledge of things Naval, he had none; but after a year at Carnegie Tech., academics pre- sented no troublesome difficulties. Neidier was he discouraged by the long and strict Plebe year, but the cruise was an unknown quantity, and what an experience it turned out to be! Joe has rarely been seen on deck, and on those few occasions there was that cer- tain paleness about the gills. As for activities, he is very fond of the security of the Radiator Club. At letter writ- ing he excels, and rare indeed is the day when he fails to write at least one. He has actually been seen numbering a page of one of those masterpieces " twenty-six. " He has, however, in spite of these tendencies, taken an active interest in class football, basketball, and track. Barcelona, Naples and Old England all sup- plied their thrills. The life of this pampered pet has been by no means monotonous. You should have seen our little Pennsylvania Dutch- man mastering the intricacies of Mussolini ' s lingo! It was indeed a revelation. Joe held his own all along the line. Senoritas, Signoras and fair-haired Britishers tried to carry the trenches, but all to no avail. The flag was still flying when the squadron steamed into the Chesapeake. Not a seafaring man, he is yet the veteran of many campaigns on Dahlgren ' s rock floor. Let this be said to his credit, too. for on this uncharted sea many a good sailor has foun- dered. 1 - Football 4, 3, 2, Captain B Squad Boxing 4, 3, 2 ; Lacrosse 3, 2, 1 ; N— ; Two Stripes.

Stockton, Texas IN days of old, God created this tiny sphere, and then, to season the unleavened mass, He created Texas, the land of mighty oil wells, hardy sagebush and wild cowboys. Out of this savage wilderness emerged a lad destined to enter the service of Neptune. He was exposed to the usual grade and high schools, finally matriculating at A. M. Tiring of dear old A. M., he turned his face towards the Navy. The requisites of his pre-destination being amply attained, he be- came one of our chosen few. Sunny, roguish, spankable at times, and thor- oughly likable all the time, Pop is an excellent companion. He has the priceless faculty of making friends in the truest sense of the word. He possesses the unusual ability of combining with this happy-go-lucky disposition a real determination to accomplish the job at hand, whether it be a juice P-work, or a letter 10 the O. A. O. He is a true Southerner, how- ever, and has made a real study of picking these occasions and rarely expends his ergs uselessly. On the other hand ' tis rumored that he is addicted to somnambulism. How else can one account for his actions shortly after his return from a never-to-be-forgotten Youngster leave? For ' tis recorded that Pop did salute the sec- tion and calmly tell the Officer of the Watch to fall out. But let this be as it may, the fact remains that Pop was born a gentleman ; the Naval Academy made him an Officer. Thus the age- old aspiration of the service has been at- tained: an " Officer and a Gentleman. " FRANK GILBERT WAGNER " Hans " " Chief " Kelso, Washington FROM the land of tall timber, tough lum- berjacks, and red salmon steaks comes Hans. Having graduated from Kelso High, been a member as a trumpeter of a far- famed high school orchestra — he gained his early nautical experience and desire for l ife on the briny deep aboard his father ' s Colum- bia River mud scow towing log rafts down the river. However, his growing desire to be a naval officer completely obliterated his first ambition of being a great musician; so he played with the game of chance on a third alternate appointment to the Academy, and fate smiled upon him and thus he became in due course one of our chosen few. With the rest of us he survived the ravages of Plebe year, and became a permanent fixture in our rhythm makers — the N. A. Ten, and has since developed into one of the finest trumpeters the Academy has ever boasted. Academically speaking, one might say of him that he has a rising external characteristic — as all through Plebe year he beat out the " Ac " Department by a very narrow margin, but now he is practically a star man in every subject, and a first section is incomplete with- out his name on the roster. The fairer sex never troubled his peace of mind until one certain Christmas leave, when — but that would entail another story far too long for the space here. Hans being of a naturally quiet nature one does not become immediately acquainted with him, but his personality grows with acquaint- ance, and to really know him is to like him.

Plebe summer Art proved his adeptness in beguiling fair young maidens strolling about the yard and at one time it was suggested that he live on the America all the time. To balance his phenomenal success with the femmes. Pally ' s accomplishments on the grid- iron, basketball court, and the lacrosse field have been stupendous. The first year he ever attempted lacrosse, he was chosen on the Ail- American team. His athletic success has not, however, been without more than its share of reverses in that Art broke his collarbone in football and the same collarbone was again broken in lacrosse. The press says " he ' s fragile. " Although not a star man in aca- demics. " Sweethaht Aht " has been near but never on the shoals. He is always ready for a " pahty " and has shown a weakness for collegiate brawls at St. Johns. On the cruise he was one of those ' boys who would come back from the first day ashore and say: " Oh, boy! sure had an apart- ment and everything! " It is only on rare occasions that Art ever gets serious. He is a great musical hound, and how that boy can " fix " victrolas! Although lighthearted and ever happy, he has time for the more serious things in life and when the sledding gets tough he can rise to the occasion. ELVIN hahn " Al " " Capone " East Orange, New Jersey DID he ever tell you that one about the reporter finding him navigating that httle toy sailboat in the gutter when he was the pride and joy of the Hahn family? South Side High School of Newark and Severn, the American Eton, have a divided claim to the honor of having educated Al for the trials and tribulations of midshipman life. He has a keen knowledge of the most appropriate way to conduct both apartment and compartment brawls. Shall we ever forget them? He knows what a good time is and his chief worry seems to be in disposing of an ever-choice assortment of femmes without hurting their feelings. Although a valuable cog in the machinery that carried our class to a football champion- ship, still his love of that suicide game of water polo seems to be his weakness. He loves to sport that build of his in a stingy tailored swimming suit along some sandy beach, giving the maidens ' eyes a treat and their hearts an extra flutter or two. Capone goes back to his native haunts twice a year to regale the tribesmen, in and around East Orange, with tales of the sea. We can visualize the awe-struck inhabitants of the vast New Jersey deserts, listening with terror to the accounts of the Ancient Mariner. Mere words could not eulogize Al, but we know that he is destined to something worth while in life. 2 P.

Math and Steam have kept him pretty busy avoiding the red ink, for we can hardly call our big boy a savoir. and he lias experienced many anxious moments. Like most longshoremen from the blue grass, Frank loves nothing better than a bull session. No matter what the hour or the circumstances, he can usually find something to talk about.

The Academic Department has never both- ered " Swede " and in fact they have assigned him a permanent billet in the first section. " Hey, Swede, how do you do this prob? " has been ringing in his ears ever since plebe year and seldom has the call gone unanswered. Such things as company water-polo and la- crosse were his high spots in sports until he found a sport where a thin body was no han- dicap. Outdoor athletics were not " Swede ' s " specialties and realizing this fact he went in for gym and further proved Darwin ' s theory by making a success at rope-climbing. He not only, by his hard work and perseverance, won himself a place on the gym team but developed himself into a virtual Tarzan. Extra duty, trees, and other hazards placed in the path of midshipmen have seldom both- ered " Swede. " With his natural savviness and quiet and dignified bearing, his future in the Navy or in " any project he may undertake will result in success after success. " Good luck, Swede. " Gym Team 3.

In his high school days not a soul would even have dreamed that that quiet unobtrusive lad would ever develop into Hank as he is now. When Hank reached Crabtown one rainy afternoon in July his mind was made up that he was going to give everything he had for the honor of his new Alma Mater. He must have heard the old maxim about doing things well, for all through Plebe summer he worked hard and diligently. Every fall has found him galloping over hill and dale and in the spring he is seen easing off the longest distance run on the schedule. He complains about it not being far enough. " Two miles is too short. ' ' Is Ole a red mike? Well, more or less, but he has his love affairs. Several times he has fallen madly and desperately in love, but each time so far he has regained equilibrium. LEE DE VALL BOYLE " Lee " Cedar Rapids, Iowa SIX feet of corn-bred boy was the Corn State ' s contribution to Uncle Sam ' s Navy. Lee arrived and after shaking off a few wisps of hay, looked and, liking the looks of things, decided to stay. Exactness of method and neatness of room are characteristic of Lee, as everyone knows who has dropped into his room to see him. " Is he a Snake? " No, and neither is he a red mike; just a happy medium. During Plebe year our boy went out for lacrosse, hoping he might be able to wield a club against some upperclassman ' s head. He ended by making his numerals, and then looked around for new fields of diversion. Youngster year Lee decided that wrestling was not unlike " bulldogging steers, " so he made the varsity wrestling squad. In academics Lee has been above average by virtue of a practical mind and ability to get the answer with minimum effort. He has been a first-rate classmate, as well as a hearty and willing shipmate, and we send him out into the fleet knowing that you can ' t keep a good man down.

" " Whit " Franklin, Tennessee A DESIRE to learn the life of the sea and a certain restlessness that would not permit remaining in one spot long, brought " Whit " to the Naval Academy. His year at Vanderbilt previous to entering stood him in good stead, for it laid a foundation upon which he has been building since — not as an honor student but as one well clear of the dividing line. His athletic inclinations found an outlet in lacrosse. It would not be proper at this point to pass over the many hours spent in the small swimming pool. Athletics did not, however, take all of his free time. He was identified with the business staff of the Trident as well as the Lucky Bag. On week ends, to vary the usual routine and to he better acquainted with st udents of other colleges, he could usually be seen with a number of men on visiting teams in tow. During the summer cruise it was his wont to rest. At first, he showed an unusual inter- est in ship construction. The result of this interest was learned when Jim was not to be seen about. No doubt he was exploring (hori- zontally) some far-removed corner. Association with " Whit " at the Academy has convinced us that to attain success as an officer he has but to " carry on. " JOSEPH ALOYSIUS ESLEN HINDMAN " Joe " " Apollo " Philadelphia, Penna. WITH seventeen years in a Navy town to his credit, not to mention sundry academic honors from his high school, Joe came to the Academy and settled down to the real business of becoming a Naval officer. In this four-year process the Navy tried him and was pleased, for she found him efficient and a savoir, and his classmates found him a real friend always ready to lend a hand to the less fortunate. The Executive Department caused him as little worry as the Academics for a natural " regness " made extra duty a myth and the Reina an unexplored territory. Since the combined attacks of the Academic and Executive Departments failed to keep him busy, he ventured into other fields and suc- cessfully managed two varsity sports and edited a department of the Lucky Bag. An excep tional burst of energy led him into the realm of class sports and a normal aversion for the Skipper ' s inspection resulted in an award for work on the Reception Committee. Now that the word is " Squads East and West " it is " best o ' luck, shipmate, may our paths cross often and may your cruise con- tinue as successful as its embarkation .

Hey, wife, where did you hide the letter? " A racket of this nature is suffi- cient to announce the arrival of Johnny. It seems that a certain " femme " back in " God ' s country " has John tied to her apron strings, but Johnny doesn ' t object. He too k a round- turn and umpteen half hitches with so-called strings and is holding on for dear life. " A letter a day keeps the gripes away " is his motto. Johnny entered the Academy through the Service and therefore knows every trick of the trade. He is used to tackling huge obstacles, but when he was tackled by a pair of two- hundred pounders on the football field Plebe year, he warmed the bench in the hospital for three months. This set the lad back in the Academics that year, but after a " big " leave he came back for more. Johnny is talented along the pugilistic lines and packs a mighty wallop for such a small package. Although Johnny is not in the habit of mus- tering the first section, he is given credit for having more than an ordinary share of com- mon sense and is liked by everyone with whom he comes in contact. HARRY RIDGE CANADAY " Harry " Cedar Rapids, Iowa STANDING just about at the top of his class all the way through high school, Harry easily passed all the entrance exams and soon found himself getting accustomed to the atmosphere on the banks of the Severn. His podunk and home state are the best on the map and everybody concedes the fact when Harry starts to argue. The gridiron calls Harry in the fall and he works hard and consistently for the honor of the class. In the winter his berth on the gym team is assured by his ability to attain the top of the rope in a short time. Though the academic courses offer him only a losing fight, he is invariably pessimistic over the results of examinations; so much so, in fact, that every- body expects it as a matter of course. Life as a bachelor does not seem to be in store for Harry. He has many friends among the fair sex (see his locker door; but one among them is the " one and only " ). Whether or not he will dash from Dahlgren to the Chapel, and become a loving husband, remains to be seen. As time comes for him to begin his career, free from these four walls, we affirm that here is a true friend; — what more can be said of any man ?

He is not a full-fledged red- mike; far from it. though he may try to per- suade you that he is by standing your watch on a hop night. Dean possesses that enviable quality of good nature enfolded in the cloak of a humorist. His entertaining ability has made him friends galore. One phase lies in his stories, unsur- passable, made perfect by his imitations. Music is his weakness: Roscoe, " J. B. " and Salmon, the harmony trio. He attained his start, when a plebe, by playing " Marching Through Geor- gia " whenever a certain First Classman, a Southerner, walked past the room. Academically his first two years were full of snares, but he fooled them. When he was in practical subjects his troubles ended. " Rojo " is a bear for punishment. He helped to uphold the class honor in football and water-polo, playing on several championship teams. During the four years of many hardships, and few joys, there was rarely ever an occa sion when he would not voice his opinion in an optimistic manner. Do you recollect that momentous occasion on which Fish auspi- ciously buried mathematics? With his winning personality we predict a successful future for our hero. JOHN KENNETH BISSON " Jakey " " Jack " " Buffalo " Charlestown, Illinois IF you don ' t see Jakey, you can usually find him because of his many ways of making his presence known. Singing is his weak- ness, two-sixth and four-fifth notes his spe- cialty; and his own famous phrase " Erre con erre cigarros — I don ' t know what it means, but you ' ve got to roll your R ' s. " You will find him plugging away at some- thing all year round, and no matter what he does you can be sure it is being done in a thorough manner. The academic departments have laid snares for him in vain, for his untir- ing determination has kept his name from those fatal lists. Almost any season finds Jakey pacing out a few miles on the cinders; thus his billet on the varsity track team. He would rather run than eat. Have you an ailment? Bring it to Jakey; he can diagnose it as thoroughly as a doctor. Do you need bandages, tape or iodine? He has them all. But be human; don ' t ask for too much, because he will give you the shirt off his back. He seldom drags. Though not a confirmed " Mike, " he possesses temperate tastes.

Despite such a handicap, Stew has won a place for himself by his pleasing per- sonality and dogged determination. Whatever he attempts to do, he gives to it his best. Naturally endowed with the physical make- up of a good soccer player, he soon became one of the stalwart defenders of the Blue and Gold on the soccer field. October ' s bright blue weather always found Stew out on Wor- den field and even two trips to the hospital couldn ' t dampen his enthusiasm for the game. The studies didn ' t give him much trouble To put more than fifteen minutes on a lesson was being greasy, and besides, there were so many good novels around that lust had to be read. " Listen to this one, " always brought attention to some choice selection from the lat- est book. Next to books. Stew ' s love was music. Lat- ent talent combined with a distaste for the manual of arms resulted in his four straight years in the choir and bugle corps. Boyle is in every respect a gentleman, quiet and unassuming. We know that his naval career will be a successful and happy one. OLIVER EDWARD WHITE " Fuzzy Wuzzy " " Ollie " Vincenne s, Indiana OUT of the middle-west came a rangy young lad with a keen mind, a ready smile and the quick Hoosier wit of his forebears. He came, he saw, he was con- quered. But nothing could down the ready satire and fun-loving nature — it broke through at the right moment. Ollie stayed to rise high in the hearts of his classmates. And he really is savvy. Rising seems to mean much to Ollie. He worked hard and finally set a pole vault record that is something for coming Academy vaulters to shoot at. Modest and unassuming, ready and eager to learn, quick to appreciate or instigate a good hearty prank; thus will Ollie always be remembered. How many trolley cars have they in Vin- cennes, Fuzzy Wuzzy? " What, only two? And you told us you came from a city! " But just give the boy a chance and he will tell you all about George Rodgers Clark and Alice of Old Vincennes. The place is steeped in tradition and Ollee can entertain you by the hour. Ollee doesn ' t live on past traditions but aids in making them. In his pole vaulting he leaves a tradition here. In leaving he will forever carry with him a spirit of unfail- ing good humor and an ahiliry to see fun in anything. c Choir 4, 3, 2, 1: Gymkhana 4 : Soccer 4. 3. 2. 1 ; NA 2 ; N 1 : Class Bowling 4 : 1 P.

It didn ' t take long, however, for old Dad Neptune to apply his lines and convert him into a non-reg, full-fledged sailor boy. A few close run-ins with the almighty academics and the trials of an " old-Navy " Plebe year molded the plastic potentialities into real man- hood with all the determination and sincerity that have characterized Bob throughout his middy ' s career. Coming here with an enviable prep school athletic and activity record, Bob found his weight too big a handicap for his beloved football and applied his brimming energy to class athletics and organization. Girls and studies shared equally in Bob ' s boredom, and only on rare occasions did the " fair ones " have the pleasure of his tricky feet at the " Dahlgren Brawls. " Ever a will- ing helper, Bob ' s quiet ways have found a permanent place in the hearts of his class- mates, and of everyone else having the gift of his friendship. As a gentleman and scholar, as well as a true pal, you ' ll live forever in the sacred memories of Academy days, Bob. May the best of everything be yours. CHARLES LOUIS WESTHOFEN " Chuck " " Snitzel " " Westy " Milwaukee, Wisconsin CHUCK came here more or less on an adventure and had few hopes of staying four years. However, he had been here only a short time when he became convinced that Navy was the best school on earth and determined to graduate. The block N early became his ambition, but by returning from September leave at evening formation instead of at the well-known 10 A.M. he lost his hopes of attaining it in football that season by order of the executive department. Spring found him going out for crew, and in spite of his lack of weight and his inexperience, he gained a scat in the var- sity boat. But Fate took a hand again, and a loss of weight slowly forced him into the J. V. ' s — with the elusive N still to gain. Chuck ' s big chance came second class year. Returning from an eventful cruise, he donned the moleskins with grim determination and worked his way to the top. Being on the training table seven months of the year has forced him to place the lighter activities in the background. However, this fact has helped make him a familiar figure in Bancroft Hall. He has been a true friend, and in defiance of the Shakespearian theorem that " familiarity breeds contempt, " we still salute you, Chuck, and hope to know you al- ways. Class Football 3.

THE myriad eyes of fellow Coloradoans opened in am.izement, some four years ago, at the loss of one of their most prom- ising sons. Jeff had deserted them, lured away from the peaks and plains of his native state by the rocks and shoals of the naval service. Now, Jeff is one man we have never been able to fathom. He will always do the thing least expected, and his closest friends can never tell what that will be. Who would have thought that he would be the one to give Tecumseh a coat of war paint before the Army game? It may be added that this occasion very clearly displayed his principles of honor, for when the Commandant asked for the guilty ones, Jeff gave a straightforward confession of having committed the deed. From outward appearances, Jeff is a Red Mike; but just ask him how everything is, and he will say, " She ' s fine, thanks. " Cares and tribulations, that wear most of us away to shells of our former selves, leave him bland and smiling. Never daunted, taking things as they came, he passed the four years with as little friction as possible. Jeff pos- sesses a store of admirable qualities that have won him the most sincere respect here, and will win him more in the service years to follow. HAROLD MARVIN HEISER " Jerry " Casper, Wyoming A WESTERNER. A personality as openly frank and free from pretense as the wide Wyoming plains. As a plebe they called him " Cowboy. " Jerry typifies the straightforward West. The obstacles set by the Academic Depart- ments he took at a gallop, and the first section knew him well. A hundred visiting teams from a score of universities and schools have been grateful for his tender care as a director of the Reception Committee. The cross-coun- try, boxing, and gym teams recognized his work in athletics. We remember Jerry for many things; most, perhaps, for his ability to meet well the details of our daily existence. Certain events, though often trivial in themselves, mark the sharpest memories of our lives as Midshipmen; and with Jerry we shall always associate a night in New York — a job of painting on the Flo- rida, — a certain girl, — other escapades in many places. We recall a wide grin for any occa- sion, and an infrequent deep growl. Jerry willingly shared with us the knowledge gained by his own work and helped us over the hard places. He gave us friendship and a rare tolerance of our own shortcomings. Could we ask more of a friend ? Cross Country 4 ; Swimming 4, 3 ; Track 4 ; 1 P. O.

Page Seventy-eight a CHARLES THOMAS MAURO, JR. " Charlie " " foe Pineapple " Charleston. South Carolina EVER since the memorable day Charlie en- tered the Naval Academy, Charleston has been lamenting its loss and we have felt fortunate in having our lives linked with his. This son of the South came to us after three years at the College of Charleston and in him we have gained a classmate of whom to be justly proud. These sketches frequently contain much of the proverbial " hot air, " but seldom does a character deserve compliments in the same way Charlie does. Generous to the «th de- gree, willing to share his last nickel with you, and always working for the other fellow — that describes Charlie. He invariably neglects him- self for another person and as a consequence has made innumerable friends, few enemies, and still stands in the upper half of the class. Conscientious application of his time, to both academics and athletics, has made him an asset to the Naval Academy and has moulded him into, what we consider, excellent material for an officer. He is a warm and generous friend, an ex- ponent of what the Navy wants, and for him we wish the best of success. Who can forget him if they but remember his famous words? " Jesouri, where ' s forma- tion, what ' s the uniform; did that guy say overshoes or jerseys? " LYNNE CLINE QUIGGLE " Quig ' " LC " " Boms ' 1 Kearney, Nebraska WE have lived with him and liked him. and in the end nothing else matters quite as much as that. The test of close association, which is the hardest to pass of them all, has shown Lynne to be of the kind that we shall want to have with us in our years at sea, one who will be as willing to give as to receive, and will do both cheer- fully, whether at work or on liberty. In short, one who will play the game straight. Quig came to us from the Service, and brought with him a devotion to it and an apti- tude for the sea, for which we have sometimes called him our " Bos ' n Bill. " The Navy ' s con- cern will always be his concern. The ways of ships are familiar to him. Because he is such a Navy man at heart, the years here have held less monotony for him than for some. His face has been seen in all sections from one to twelve, on the football field, and at all activities, and will always remain in the memo- ries of those from whom he is separated by graduation. His ability to make friends is the result of an almost perfect veneer of politeness com- bined with a humorous " happy-go-lucky " atti- tude. In four short years he has stolen a niche in our hearts and it is with no modesty that we state that success will crown the Naval career of our " Boat ' sun.

Plebe year academics were the cause of some trouble but since then he has been sailing free, and his ability to enjoy the curr ent fic- tion during exam week has been the source •of no little wonderment and envy to those less fortunately gifted. Tommy possesses the happy faculty of keep- ing out of trouble, being always appropriately -occupied when a representative of the executive •department is unexpectedly at hand. One ex- ception should be mentioned, however, — a Sep tember leave night spent in a small town jail, the result of one of many adventurous esca- pades. Easy-going and just lazy enough to be a true son of his native state, Tommy has, never- theless, never been known to leave any loose ends on any enterprise he has earnestly under- taken. Although he has at times professed a preference for the life of a Mississippi gentle- man of leisure over that of the Navy we pre- dict for him a successful and colorful career in the service. He will always be remembered .as the very finest of friends and shipmates. FREDERIC COLBY LUCAS " Luke " " Glipc " Chicago, III. ONE of the Windy City ' s gifts to our Navy in 1926 was 150 pounds of gun totin ' Lucas. When he arrived here and found out that it was against regulations to carry a gun, he was all for going back to Chi- cago. Then someone happened to tell him about the big guns on the battleships, so he decided to stay. The Academics have never been a terror to him. Flashes of brilliancy and unsatisfac- tory averages — he has experienced both. With his seemingly unlimited ability and everlasting earnestness he has been able to pass through the four years here by the Severn with little trouble. He has had few encounters with the Executive Department because his motto is " If you can ' t be good, be clever. " " Luke " has never been a person to content himself with inactivity. In the winter, basket- ball occupied his recreation hours, and the rest of the year it was tennis. He is no novice at tennis. Just mention sports to " Glific " and you have his attention for many hours, but don ' t say anything about women, for he is one who believes that " a woman is just a woman, but a cigar is a darned good smoke. " Predicting success for Luke would be like forecasting sunshine for June. Track 4; Class Football 3 ; 1 P. O. Basketball 2. 1 ; MA 2. 1 ; Tennis 4, 3, 2, 1 : N 4. }, 2. 1. 2 P. O.

He soon found out that there was a great deal to learn; plebe year instilled this fact in him rather strongly. His willingness to overcome obstacles enabled him to successfully complete the first and most trying year in his naval career. Subsequent years have been dealt with in the same manner until now, as graduation draws near, those who know him can note the great change that has taken place during the four-year period. Cheerful by nature, this gentleman from the Middle West is able to laugh down many of his troubles. He is quick to resent any viola- tion of class " rates, " for he has always strictly observed his own. The fair sex finds his com- pany most desirable and the letters he receives bearing feminine handwriting are almost count- less. His leaves have been spent in systematic heart-breaking and as yet he has not " tumbled " to the many snares that only the designing brain of woman can conceive. What few words can be said here of the many sides of the life of a midshipman could not accurately describe the characteristics, habits and faults of Mike. Any word picture of him without mention of a pipe is a failure. When he sets his mind on something he usually gets it. The best wish that can be bestowed on him as he leaves the Academy is that the future trials of life do not faze him any more than those he met here. ALBERT STANLEY MILLER " Tower " " Stan " New Rochelle, New York " W 1 ' ELL, it was like this — there were three men in a boat and the oars leaked so they threw the engine overboard to make room for the water. " Countless numbers of times " Stan " has re- peated this for the benefit of his friends when asked for the latest news, and then wondered why they didn ' t thank him for being so gen- erous with his information. There ' s a bit of the Philosopher in the makeup of " Towser, " and a mighty lot of the stuff that may be termed good fellowship. His ready laugh and his good nature have won many friends for him since he first put on the brass buttons. He may be shy when he first meets any of the opposite sex, but those of us who know him have wondered — he cer- tainly gets over it quickly. He has a great desire to see things done right — consequently when he wrecked a car his first leave he decided to do it on all those following. How near he came to doing so forms part of a sad story. Although Stan has harbored secret ambitions to make good at gym, the lure of Annapolis on Wednesdays and week-ends has hindered his progress somewhat. But despite that fact his name is usually painted on the schedule whenever there is a meet. Regardless of the different paths in which fate may lead us there are many of us who will remember the friendship of Stan and voice a hope that " All is well.

Page Eighty-one LLOYD HENRY MULIT " Lloyd " " Heinle ' San Francisco, California AMONG the many native sons to arrive here in the summer of ' 26 was one Lloyd Mulit, pride of old Galileo High. The executive department, immediately recog- nizing him as a man of destiny, gave Lloyd supreme command of the First Company, but the seamanship department, less appreciative, refused in no uncertain terms the command of any of their craft. Of course, his attempt to demolish the sea wall had something to do with it, but surely such slight errors are unim- portant. Plebe year saw Heinie the bane of the aca- demic departments. They just couldn ' t keep him down so in self-preservation they gave him a pair of stars, and he has kept them ever since. Then came Youngster year, and, shedding the restrictions of Plebedom, Lloyd blossomed forth a regular snake. Few were the hops he missed, and many and beautiful the drags he imported. Four years here in the East have weaned Mulit from his native heath, thus disproving California ' s claims to superiority over the United States. Lest it be thought that Lloyd has no bad habits, I must mention his pipes. Dozens of them, and one going all the time. A pipe and a book, that ' s Lloyd. THOMAS B. HUGHES " Tom " " T. B. " Kansas City, Kansas TOM graduated from high school in ' 24 and then, for lack of anything more ex- citing to do, joined the Marines. When questioned on this point he is frankly un- ashamed and admits it openly. After training at Parris Island, South Carolina, he shipped on the Rochester. A short time later he decided that the life of a private in the Marine Corps was not exactly that for which he was best suited; so he made up his mind to become an officer. Now, with Tom, to decide is to act; hence his presence at the Naval Academy. During " Plebe Year " he concluded that nothing less than being an inter-collegiate champ in gym would suffice in the way of athletic achievements. Since that day he has thought, eaten, dreamed, and talked nothing but gym, with the natural result that he be- came one of our opponents ' most dangerous adversaries. However, in between thoughts, " T. B. " found time to study enough to stand very near the top of the class. His one weak point was " Dago, " but even that gave him little trouble. Tom is possessed of a very equable nature, which has gained him a great many friends who will remember him long after the Class of ' 30 has reached the rank of Admiral.

At the age of eleven he moved to Los Angeles, which has since been his home. He entered the Naval Academy from the Marine Corps where he had spent twelve months at sea and acquired a " Shellback ' s " certificate. Since his arrival here he has had his troubles with the academic department and conquered them, at times with ease, at others by dint of sheer hard work and perseverance. In the way of athletics he has distinguished himself on the gym team where he has been a fairly con- sistent winner on the flying rings. At the same time he has been a success at the other sports that he has entered. Nor has he neg- lected the social side of life. For he is to be seen at all the hops and nine times out of ten he is dragging. So after graduation we know that he will uphold the Navy tradition of doing whatever work is assigned and doing it promptly and well. Only a glance at " Beermug " will assure even the most skeptical that he has a sense of humor. However, let not your heart be troubled, for more than once he has with- stood the attack of the first battalion ruffians, and emerged victorious. JOHN ROWLAND McKNIGHT, JR. " Mac " " Cinco " Oklahoma City, Oklahoma ON the third day of May, 1908, John Rowland McKnight was born in Okla- homa City. In due time he entered the University of Oklahoma, where he was at once initiated into the strenuosities of military life as exhibited by the R. O. T. C. Since that day he has been unwavering in his devotion to the great god Mars. Eventually he succeeded in gaining an appointment to the Naval Academy — then began his troubles. With the beginning of Plebe Year, Mac be- came a devoted student of naval history and traditions. By the beginning of Youngster Year he could talk for hours upon the subject, and took especial delight in talking about tra- ditions to anyone who would lend an ear, so that now it is very difficult to find his equal in a discussion of tradition. By the beginning of First Class Year Mac had tried his hand at everything from chess through gymnastics and crew to football. With his mental qualifications and his natu- ral ability to do all things well, John Rowland McKnight should be an asset to the naval service — a true product of the Naval Academy and a devoted disciple to the well-founded principles of John Paul Jones. 2 P.

P.ige Eight y-lbiee HAROLD EDWARD DURYEA " Squeak " " Childe Harolde ' Brooklyn, New York FLATBUSH has always been well repre- sented among the pampered pets. In our opinion, Squeak has been a worthy rep- resentative. Harold ' s father is Republican, but Squeak is a Naval Reservist, through and through. Because of his loyalty to the Naval Militia he was made a midshipman. Look at him today. It was on the twenty-third day of June, 1926, that " Childe Harolde " came through Number Three Gate, with his little soul full of hope and ideals, some of which, strangely enough, he still retains. Harold ' s temperament is unusually complex. Sometimes, indeed, most of the time, he is jovial and full of youthful exuberance. At other times he has periods of melancholia. These variations have been very trying on his loyal friends who have come to the conclusion that such phenomena are due to his more or less continuous affairs with the members of the fair sex. The ladies have caused Harold many a thoughtful hour. Like two of his teeth, " The Childe " has a heart of gold. He was always ready to lend that clean pair of white gloves. Unfortunately for him, his clothes, from cap to shoes, fit his roommate. Harold is very high-minded. For that rea- son he has serious intentions of becoming a Naval Aviator. His probable success in that field is beyond the scope of this publication EDWIN OTTO WAGNER " Hans " " Apollo " " Rex " Brooklyn, N. Y. OWING to lack of space, vocabulary, and rhetorical ability, Eddie cannot be com- pletely justified in a short biography. Suffice it to say that his childhood was nor- mal, his boyhood quite impressive, and his career as a midshipman even more so; thus at the present rate of progress he should, and he will, go far in the fleet or wherever life may take him. His cheerful disposition and happy smile have carried him over many of the rough spots of his existence and ofttimes into the heart of some receptive maiden whenever the occasion presented itself. But the fair one from the old home town has always ruled as the favorite of them all. Academically speaking he just takes studies as they come. If they don ' t come along well enough at the end of the first three months, he gives them just enough encouragement to get safely by; and it works every time, even though long sojourns in the restful hospital have interfered. His dramatic talent was discovered by the first class during a hectic plebe year, so many of Eddie ' s spare moments were occupied for their entertainment. Athletics have held a nor- mal share of his time also except for the sev- eral intrusions of the more important academics. Dragging was also another factor successfully contended with, maybe not so often but cer- tainly very well. Class Football 2, 1 ; Class Cross Country 3. 2 P. O. Class Cross Country 3 .

Quiet, unassuming and cheerful, Alec has collected a host of friends during his years among us. Serious in many ways, yet always willing to look at things through the eyes of others, and in his humorous way admit, " Well, now, maybe you ' re right — but I don ' t know. " Acs and swimming are Stan ' s specialties. He is a star man in both. Starting in plebe year, he could ever be seen at the pool almost any ' ole time, working and improving. As to femmes, Alec has always steered a bit clear. There ' s a story, however, about a certain Christmas leave, a car, a girl, and — a ditch. It is even said that Stan stepped on the gas, not caring for nor seeing anything else but the fair one at his side Due to his great capacity for work and unusual savviness, Stan ' s words of wisdom have proved embarrassing to more than one of our highly esteemed Math Profs. So we know that when the Fleet takes him Alex will be found doing whatever job to the ultimate of perfection. As a true gentleman, and a staunch friend, Alex will remain in our memories always! NED HARRELL " Ned " Medford, Oregon NED ventured from the badlands of the Rouge River Valley and the perils of Skookum Gorge to the pacific plains by the Severn. His quiet determination and tenacity have carried him safely over every rock and shoal. He turned to the boxing ring for recreation and soon became well known for the courage and skill that he displayed. Youngster Year, however, he deserted the gloves and resin for rings and chalk, and daily performed divers difficult gymnastic evolutions. Unique, he has been able to woo two gods, Tecumseh and Morpheus. Uniformly success- ful in securing a 2.5, he has been one of the few to anticipate taps with any regularity. The cruise has never lowered his average. His present passion is the movie. Each week finds him treading the peanut-covered aisles or climbing to the second story up. But don ' t gather that Ned is not romantic. One often suspects him of sentiments quite alien to his conduct. Although naturally reserved and a trifle shy, he is a steadfast friend, willingly making sac- rifices for another ' s happiness, a true test. Good natured and even tempered, adversity serves but to kindle his resolve. Swimming 4, 3, 2. 1 ; Numerals 4; NA 3. 2: Orchestra 4; Gymkhana 4 ; Reception Committee 3, 2, 1 ; Star 4, 2; 2 P.

Where is the Niagara. Mary Anthony ' s Blockhouse, and where did the flag in Memorial Hall come from? It might be added that Whitey is also from Erie. He thought Lake Erie too small for him, so he came into the Navy. Knollie was never athletically inclined, but he made up for it in other spheres of his academic life. He always had a book in his hand, and he read the newspapers quite a bit, including the funny sheet. When the Plebes wanted to get the dope about anything, they always came to Denny, and hardly ever failed to get it. It was never understood how he always got the dope before anyone else. With the opposite sex Denny never had much luck, but it was not his fault. He " tried so hard to please. " Every spring when the fancies of some Midshipmen are lightly turn- ing to thoughts of LOVE and other SPRING SPORTS, Whitey would try to satisfy his yearning passion by putting his thoughts into verse. Denny has always been sincere with himself, his work, and his friends. He sees further into the future than do the majority of men of his age, and being a " savoir. " his knowl- edge about everything and anything is not limited to the Academic Department. THOMAS BRADLEY HALEY " T. B. " " Bumboat " " Tom " Le Banon, Tennessee ONE bright summer ' s day, a small-town Southern lad semi-consciously followed an eager mob, which led him to Sick Bay. Much to his amazement, he was in- formed he was in the correct place. One look sufficed to prove to anyone that he was away from home for the first time. During plebe summer, one day of rest from football practice cost him a place on the Plebe Varsity but meant for him a Yankee sweet- heart. Needless to say, he has never regretted the fortunate occurrence. Dragging is about the only diversion that has not attracted him. His youngster year taught him every twist and turn in the Levenu and made him more capable to fill center posi- tion on the football " A " squad the following fall. Class or even company athletics have benefited by his prowess. Except for the O. A. O., few, if any, charming girls can boast of having been charmed by his entertaining ability. His slow Southern habits have been accele- rated a good bit, but try to prove to him damn Yankee is two words. Consistent study has at times helped him. and caused him to be ranked with the " savvy. " Thus his plans for a Naval career should easily marerialize, and we all join in wishing him the best of success for the future. Two Stripes.

Page Eighty-six I ROBERT JOHN ESSLINGER " Bob " " Red " Ypsilanti, Michigan WITH no more idea of the Navy than that sailors were given to the use of ships, this aspirant for honors sud- denly found himself drilling on Farragut Field under a Maryland sun. A growing affection for the service never dispelled his impulse to open all the windows in the middle of Jan- uary. Bob always seemed to be a little bit warmer than anyone else, but whether or not he maintained this condition in the presence of femmes, no one knew. His six feet of full dress, topped by " auburn " hair, could usu- ally be seen in Dahlgren Hall on week-ends, sometimes with and sometimes without a charming partner. A sampler of various forms of athletics, win- ter invariably found him in the tank. The rest of the time, class or company calls were always honored. His daily immersions seem to have developed an uncanny knowledge of all forms of sprays, gargles, and sore throat remedies. However, weaknesses of the flesh were never allowed to interfere with the busi- ness of seeing who could hold the other man under longest. Held in affection by all who know him, he will surely show his true worth to others, as he has to us. B. C. ALLEN, JR. " Little Fellow " At Large WHERE from? Having a home podunk is not a necessary qualification for a Navy junior. However, a place called Greenwich, Connecticut, was the scene of his prep-school days and the place he deserted for the purpose of casting his lot with us. Few of the boys are more at home over at Dahlgren, but for some reason he seldom finds it worth his while to spend a whole week-end entertaining a mere femme. But with Navy blood in his veins he can hardly be expected to go on this way forever. Up in the fencing loft " Little Fellow " is his cognomen, but he can hold his own with the largest of them. His one big gripe is being called a pin-pusher. Academics never make him lose any sleep, nor do the D. O. ' s often catch him off his guard. His ambition to get the day ' s work finished as easily and quickly as possible has perfected his ability to peruse fiction during study hours and still convince the Profs that he knows what ' s what. Congress didn ' t have to pass any acts to make him a gentleman, and he has that superb trait of minding his own business. We hope that he may always find life smooth and we know he will be welcome wherever the Service takes him. Vi ' aier Polo Squad 4, 3, 2. NA 2; Choir 4. 3.2. 1 : Class Cross Country 4, 3, 2 M. P. O.

Then he returned to the States to become prominent in athletics at Bucknell University and to de- velop a collegiate shuffle before entering the Naval Academy. While at the Academy, he has devoted much of his time to athletics. Basketball has been his forte, and tennis, crew, football and track have provided constant sources of interest. Academic work is to him a matter of course, a necessary evil like making a bed every morn- ing. He has accomplished both and has given them about an equal amount of thought. No social function ever held terrors for him, and his loves have ranged from the most bewitch- ing of Broadway ' s choices to the dark-eyed beauties of the Old World. Ed is a man whose versatility and easy- going nature win hosts of friends for him wherever he goes. His unostentatious affabil- ity has made his room the meeting-place of many pleasant after-chow gatherings. He will be remembered as a man naturally endowed with all the essentials of good character. We have known him, lived with him, been asso- ciated with him intimately, for four years and the verdict is " We should like four more years of such association. " GEORGE LIONEL HEAP " George " " Bunny " " Brown Eyes " WlLLIAMSPORT, PENNSYLVANIA THIS Pennsylvania volunteer graduated from Wilhamsport High School and fur- ther prepared for the Naval Academy at Syracuse University. George is the man we have never been able to fathom. Beneath his ever-present jovial mood there lurks the probability of his saying or doing something unexpected. Even his closest friends can never tell his next move. A keen engineering mind has enabled him to regard the Academic Departments in a friendly manner. It is said he even laughs with them at times. He has gladly shared his savviness with his less fortunate class- mates. Give him the prob, and the explana- tion will be yours, for " can ' t " isn ' t a part of his makeup. Socially we find him a man whose strength of mind has made him a distinct individualist. The fact that the crowd does it is no reason for George to do it. It must be right and bear his personal stamp of approval. In the Spring, George ' s fancy turns to la- crosse and in the Fall to track. As a friend he can be likened to a pinch hitter. The times when you need a friend badly he will be found at your side willing to go down fighting with you if necessary. Basketball 3. 2, 1 ; NA 3. 2 . Capcain 1 ; Co.

Page Eighty-eight HERBERT HUGHES MARABLE " Herb " " Budd " Portsmouth, Virginia THE old cavalier spirit of Virginia lives on in Herbert. His outstanding charac- teristic and that which makes his friend- ship so worth while is his idealism. His be- lief in all good things — in friendship, in loyalty to a cause, in hard work is unshakable. More- over, Herb is prepared to go down fighting for those very ideals. He is an inspiration as a friend and one that will remain in the memory of those who were associated with him not only at the Naval Academy but in civil life as well. It is but natural that one should expect the artistic in such a makeup. And we find it — a love for music and a passion for drawing and sketching. Some of the outstanding art work of the Log during the past four years has been Herb ' s. Machine and ship designing also hold a fascination for him and his ambi- tion is to climb into naval architecture and to build the ships of which he now dreams. He loves his friends and his pipe. He meets life with a smile and lives it like a man. WALLACE MARTIN GREENE " Wallie " " Brown Eyes " Burlington, Vermont SOME twenty years ago this bright young chap blinked into the mysteries of this life and has since been wondering what it ' s all about. His early education offered nothing in ships so he has found his way into the school of pampered pets. Really to know him well — (as his wife) — one recognizes ambition and unlimited energy. " Wallie " happens to be studious, inquisitive, with a sparkling sense of humor, rare faith at times and a keen appreciation for canoeing. We wonder sometimes if he doesn ' t find canoeing a bit trying, especially when he doesn ' t particularly crave the company of one so elite as " Miss Springfield. " However, that does not spoil his love of the outdoors. Oc- casionally he drags, although he proclaims himself a profound " red mike. " He is very fond of the library. At times he may be found digging into rather deep subjects, which lend themselves to his liking. To listen to some of his arguments one might conclude he will some day revise Schopen- hauer.

Page Eighty-nine GEORGE K. BRODIE " Steve " Owensboro, Kentucky IN the spring of 1926 Rose Polytechnic In- stitute and the Sigma Nu fraternity lost a promising young man — Steve Brodie joined the Navy. Rumors to the contrary notwithstanding, he joined of his own free will. Plebe summer he distinguished himself by staying awake through a whole English lecture and knocking down more hurdles than any other contestant in the company track meet. Those hurdles decided Steve against an athletic career, and except for four strenuous seasons on the company football team he has since dedicated himself to art, in which he has become most prolific and expert. Most of the beautiful girls who smiled at you from the cover of the " Log " had Steve ' s name down in the corner. Not content, however, with his many contributions to " Log, " " Lucky Bag, " and " Trident, " he branched out into other lines of artistic endeavor such as hop cards, white works jumpers, and shower curtains. He even became so absorbed in drawing that he abandoned his saxophone, whereupon the denizens of his deck heaved a great sigh of relief. Steve is from Kentucky (he admits it when cornered) and proves it by falling in love at least once a month and never missing a hop. Here ' s the kind of a classmate we ' re proud of; always has an extra cigarette, always will- ing to drop his own work to explain to- morrow ' s steam lesson, make a fourth at bridge or debate on any question under the sun. C. H. HAYES " Fog " " Chuck " San Marcial, New Mexico " F OG " has three aspirations in life: they are, in order of importance, an amount available, a 2.5 average, and plenty of sleep. Women don ' t bother him, that is, not much; but if you want to know the itinerary of last year ' s cruise just look over the post marks on his mail. He spent two Christmas leaves in Kentucky, but says he doesn ' t dare go back. Some of the girls he made love to in Spanish have found out what those words really meant. Of the three aforementioned aspirations, the third is the only one in which he has been consistently successful. Scene: Bancroft Hall — 6:20 A.M.

His motto, " no wasted energy, " and a few helpful shoves by his roommates have given him a " blissful " attitude which has brought words of commendation from his classmates in ' 30.

He never misses a hop and can always be found at these functions ex- plaining the intricate workings of the range finders to some fair femme. His little red date book is his God and the salvation of the ladies of the land. When not on the tennis courts showing them how, he can be found with the fist of cards or pushing bits of bone about the deck. He is an ardent follower of Dame Fortune, but she seldom smiles on him. So usually he manages to keep himself and his roommates happily broke. Athletically, he has taken part in various forms of exercise but his favorite sport and the one at which he excels is the waging of verbal combat. His gift of gab is remarkable and the boast of the class. He will argue about anything or nothing with anyone at the drop of a hat or less, and picking mistakes in text-books is his delight. He is always on hand to work probs, drag your date when you have a watch, borrow money, cheer you up, or prove that you are wrong. AUBREY JOSEPH BOURGEOIS " Aubrey " " Bush " New Orleans, Louisiana IT is impossible to characterize Aubrey in a few words. At the end of Youngster Cruise he came to us, and promptly proved the Depart- ment in error by standing so high in the class that it was difficult for us to keep up with him. He is not a snake — nor is he a total ab- stainer. His big brown eyes and wavy blonde hair have made it difficult for him to resist the onslaughts of the fair sex. However, to date, the score is heavily in his favor. His versatility has been demonstrated by his activities in other fields. He is a " Dago " savoir, and in the line of athletics, he has a way of demonstrating that a man can " ar- rive " if he really wants a block " N. " He ' s a broad jumper. He ' s a hard worker and more than willing to lend a hand, be it to guide us in the paths of learning or to cheer us through the gloomy days that occasionally beset us. " Bush ' s " name is certainly French and he is everything that we can well imagine that the socially inclined Frenchman should be, with that erectness and smooth manner that would do credit to even the royalty of Paris.

" He was a big fellow from the wild and woolly open spaces of Montana and the high barriers of discipline seemed no worse to him than the Rocky Mountains. Moon ' s only big disappointment was in crew, but it caused the development of a mighty good heavyweight boxer. Four years of boxing combined with an equal number of years of football, have given him a chance to demonstrate his value to Navy sports. Var- sity positions and block N ' s were the appro- private awards. In the field of Academics, " Moon " did not scintillate quite so brilliantly as on the grid- iron or in the ring. But he always managed to win his battles here, too, despite rough weather at times. Moon is a clever story teller and a speaker of ability. Who will forget the speeches at smokers and the " Burial of Math? " But, what is more rare, he is a good listener and can always muster a happy smile after even the worst of stories. It is this ability to develop a beaming and innocent smile which often deceives one in regard to " Moon. " He looks good-natured and easy, but remember that he is probably saying things under his breath. LITTLE devil, but to us an angel of joy. He dropped in with a lot of good card tricks and the boys are still paying to learn them. He has about him an air of cool detachment, deliberation, and determination, which bodes ill to his opponent; little avail for any problem to long withstand his assault Whether it be cards, studies, boxing, or foot- ball, he goes at it with hammer and tongs. George came here like the rest of us, more mature in many ways than most of us, and bringing with him an air of detachment which has enabled him to observe people and events to an advantage. But far from being a cold philosopher or simply a spectator, he has the spark. His natural bent is football. Handi- capped by his size and weight he has piloted teams of his class to repeated victories. Dur- ing the winter sport season " Bippo " was always in t he Gym learning how to give and take in the manly art of boxing, and there are many who are sorry that they put the gloves on and stepped inside of the ring with him. And this is what more than one of his opponents have said: " Small of stature but Oh! what a punch! " The power behind the throne — no other phrase so fittingly describes his unassuming force. For George we hope the best — that his path through life may be as tranquil and sure as his way through the Naval Academy.

He had about two years at the University of Georgia before he decided to give " all those Northern folks " a treat, and show them what kind of men Georgia can produce. Hiram has done just that. He has shown us that the fairy stories of the proverbial " southern gentleman " are not, after all, mere myths. To sum him up in a sentence, one might say he is sincere, has a heart as big as all outdoors, and is a gentleman in every sense of the word. Partially because of his previous education, but chiefly because of his natural sincerity, he has made a creditable showing in his academic work. He no doubt would stand near the head of his class if it didn ' t require such a bothersome exp enditure of energy to do so. Work? Yes when it is necessary, but it is much nicer to read good books or play the guitar. Usually one may find Hiram, if his work is done, either plucking his guitar and singing some old southern song, or reading some worth-while book. This latter pastime has helped him a great deal, for he has that rare faculty of absorbing what he reads and adding it to himself. In the athletic department, Hiram had tough luck. Plebe year he looked awfully good at lacrosse and soccer, but an injured leg stopped him and hasn ' t permitted him to do much since. It has been more than a pleasure to know Hiram, and we wish him all the good luck in the world as he goes out to show others what he has shown us. ROBERT ADRIAN ROSASCO " Rosy " Pensacola, Florida tt y N your way, paluka. " Thus you are 1 1 greeted. A robust lad from down South, reared as a rebel, and a de- lightfully harmless anarchist whose radical ideas and wisecracks have brightened up many extra-duty squads. Fond of athletics when they do not interfere with that blessed sleep, a performer on the " B " squad in the fall and a member of the suicide club in the winter. And spending a great part of the time either dragging or walking, usually the latter. But of all accomplishments, physical, spiritual, or mental, he is unfortunately proud of his ability to sleep and snore, which he does on the slightest provocation. Consigning academics to the seventh Gehenna on the very day of entrance, as they proved to be neither trouble- some nor interesting, Rosy ' s greatest preoccu- pation in the Academy has been the making of friends. Possessing an excellent sense of humor with an unfailing torrent of cynicism for artificiality, combined with an amiable per- sonality, he has succeeded to no little extent. Rosy has common sense and a certain fun- damental knowledge of human nature. With little patience for trivialities he sttives to sepa- rate the chaff from the wheat, the good from the bad. When he returns to his home town for flight training he will leave a place that cannot be filled. For, in the years to come, we, his classmates, will remember him as a man, and, what is rarer these days, a gentle- man. This is the acme of personal tribute, in con- clusion, he is a philosopher whose only request of life is the attainment of that state of sub- limity — " As idle as a painted ship, upon a painted ocean.

Fortunately, they don ' t; and we are indebted to the gods immortal for that rare type whose presence among us is made known only by the things that they do and by very occasional pithy contributions to the matter in hand. Jack is one of the clan. There are few who can claim to know Jack well. But those who have been fortunate enough to pass beyond the wall of his almost shy reserve have found not only a fr iend of worth but a most congenial companion. Jack ' s compass is " steady on " in everything he does: it ' s the letters from the Girl Back Home that count, it ' s a steady drive and a fast finish with the Academic Department, and in the various activities to which he lends himself there is no pausing to dally in the by-ways. Jack is one of those who maintains his equilibrium when " all about you are losing theirs. " As such he will be an asset to the Service. When the Skipper wants his gig, the admiral is swearing because his barge is not alongside, pressure is wanted on the deck pumps, and the Patrol not yet ashore — give Jack the deck. And, furthermore, those who make one liberty with him invariably make others. That ' s the Supreme Test.

JAMES HILLMAN NEWSOME ' Foxy " " Jimmie " " Santy Claus " Eatonton, Georgia IF there ever was one man that came clos- est to pleasing everybody, here he is. There is Southern hospitality, a generous good nature, and an exceptionally acute con- sideration for the feelings of his fellow men behind those soft grey eyes. Gifted with an easy flow of speech and a sense of what should be said, he makes friends easily and retains them indefinitely. Naturally, a man so armed need not fear the female of the species, and his friends are many in the weak as well as the weaker sex. The vigorous athletics receive his moral support only, but he always manages to get in his " workouts " so as to remain fit for the great game of life. Academics interfered with his rest periods only at such times as the trees showed the necessity for attention to earthly things. . You will learn lots about getting along with people from your associations with Foxy and you ' ll enjoy every minute you are with him. GEORGE BENEDICT CHAFEE " George " Washington, D. C. TWO weeks before graduating from high school, George decided that his future in . life depended entirely on his graduating from the Naval Academy. With this in mind, and at the same time following in the foot- steps of his father, he became a member of the class of ' 30 in the school on the banks of the Severn. He has been successful in all that he has undertaken. Nearly a star man in academics, a dead shot with a rifle, and with a warm re- gard for his classmates; George possesses most of the human characteristics that are worth while. A single glance at his always-smiling countenance is all that is necessary to convince one that he has learned to exist without worrying. . May his success be assured in the fleet, ashore, or wherever fate chances to place him. May his friendly personality continue to bene- fit all of those with whom he comes in con- tact. 2 V.

Page Ninety-five LESLIE PINCKNEY CLOSE " Les " " Bonef Savannah, Georgia HOW this proud son of the South ever strayed as far North as Annapolis is more than we can see. For to Les nowhere is the grass quite so green, the girls so pretty or the climate so perfect as in his glorious Georgia. But somehow he found his way up here and joined our ranks. Possessed of unruffled calm and complete peace of mind, he is the envy of many and makes his way easily and winningly. The rough spots and hard knocks of a naval career have never disturbed his unfailing good nature and keen sense of humor. Les made a good start in lacrosse but broken bones halted his strides in that direction and he was forced to give it up for more peaceful pursuits. The " Cosmo " and the big pool of the gym have occupied most of his spare time, which is always plentiful, as the academic departments could never scare him to excep tional efforts, do what they might. Though not a red mike by any means, he could seldom be induced to drag, and as his trys at blind dragging were usually disastrous, he subsequently became an addict to the stag line. Les, with his quiet Southern ways and gentlemanly manners, has accumulated many friends and we heartily wish him luck wher- ever fortune may take him. JAMES A. WOODRUFF " Jimmy " " Sparky " Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas AN army junior by birth, a gentleman by nature, possessed of a sunny disposition, coupled with a keen sense of humor, we have often wondered how Sparky ever does it. But he does. In his years at the Academy, Jimmy struck a happy medium between athletics and aca- demics — starring in neither — but doing mighty well in both. During the winter and spring months he could always be found over at the big pool, and in the spring his fancy lightly turned to thoughts of tennis and — (what the girls had been thinking about all winter). Speaking of the unfair sex — his week-ends were full. There was always " someone " — and though each Sunday night he vowed women were boring and that he ' d never drag again, next Saturday was only a repetition of the one before. Here is a much-traveled individual who has experienced all the varying climes and condi- tions characteristic of Army life. Jimmy can speak of Panama, and, in the same breath, deliver a discourse on the Pacific Islands. He disported in the waves of Waikiki, and brought his prowess as a merman with him to Crab- town. Best of luck to you, Sparky. You have your faults but we love you still. May your paths often cross our own. Lucky Bag, Assistant Biograpli) Editor, 2 ; Tennis Class 2 ; Numerals 2.

Pa,ee Ninety-six EMMETT O ' BEIRNE " Obie " Elgin, Illinois EMMETT in his earlier days claimed New Orleans as his home, but many years spent in the North and four years with a Yankee roommate have erased most traces of his Southern birth. A man _quiet in con- versation, simple in habits, generous in char- acteristics, Obie has always been popular. His type of popularity is one that improves with acquaintance. He has always been an ardent " suicider, gaining a place on the " All-American Team " while still in the earlier years at the Academy. Saturdays in winter were always big days for Obie. One, or even two, events in a swim- ming meet found him just warmed up and in good shape for a fast and breath-taking game of water polo. It has been Obie ' s aim to mold himself for his profession; and in the molding, he has developed a personality that is his own. An unusually active and retentive mind has kept him constantly fluctuating somewhere near the top sections, and an almost uncanny ability to recognize the fitness of things has ever marked him as a leader. A friend finds him an interesting companion and an enemy does not fi nd him at all. GILBERT CROWELL CARPENTER " Gibbert " " Gill " " Carp " Iron Mountain, Michigan FROM a little village in upper Michigan came a mere boy believing that Iron Mountain was the foundation of the United States. He wasted away a year of Prep at Severn, waiting for the age limit, and had decided to take another year in order to keep up at the Academy. But when it came time for the other fellows to enter, and an appointment floated his way, he jumped the train and arrived late, but not too late, as usual. Gibbert spent three years at High School, but from what we think and gather, it is probable that his mother taught him faster than his teachers could follow. He was only expecting to stay here until February, when those unsatisfactory for the first term were let out. But things turned out a little different and since the first marks were posted Gibbert has been called savvy. He justly deserves it as he can cover a lesson better in ten minutes than most of us can in an hour. He is naturally carefree and pleasure-bent, but when he has a job to do, he tackles it with thoroughness and is always first to fin- ish.

Page Ninety-seven JAMES EDWARD STEVENS " Ted " " Steve " " Skeeter " RlDGEFIELD PARK, NEW JERSEY SOMEWHERE up in the mosquito infested state in a " podunk " called Ridgeheld Patk, " Ted " was first initiated into the intricacies of secondary education. Later on in his bright young career, his father deter- mined to send him to Rutgers, but after a year at Rutgers, Ted decided that he would rather star for Navy than " die for dear old Rutgers. " Accordingly he crashed the portals of the Naval Academy and succumbed to the lure of the sea. He at once distinguished himself by his jolly good nature and his everlasting smile that had its origin in a heart of true blue. Academically, Ted always held an easy up- per hand, and study all usually found him boning " Red Book, " which was a source of constant wonder to his less savvy classmates. Socially, one could hardly call him a " red mike, " as almost any week-end found him dragging a member of the fairer sex. Never, however, has he fallen a victim to their charms. Ever since his boyhood days, Ted has always felt the urge of athletics, football and base- ball demanding the greater part of his time. He has been a friend amongst friends and a corking good roommate, and we rest assured that success will crown his efforts in any future line of endeavor. GEORGE COOK " Red " East Rutherford, New Jersey A MOP of red hair, a temper to match, a sense of humor, and a spirit of loyalty and friendship equaled by none describes Cook. Red was well on the way to the presidency of a bank up Jersey way when the lure of the sea became so strong that he left the checks and debentures to become one of us. Plebe summer found Cook naturally drift- ing to the athletic field and ever since, unless the hindrance was very great, Cook has taken his daily workout. These workouts were not in vain. By hard work he slowly increased, inch by inch, the distance he could throw the shot until he surpassed the Naval Academy record. He also has been a contender for a letter on the football team, but a bad knee has handicapped him. He always had a sneaking suspicion that he was going to bilge, but each month as the marks came up he was a long way from the bottom. Red holds one more record. That of being able to eat from bell to bell more times than any other man in the Academy. He says he eats slowly, but a pile of potato peelings can ' t be wrong. _ Red is a true, loyal, and helpful friend. He seems destined to become a good officer and an asset to the Navy.

You ' re from Detroit, sir! " Yes, tin lizzies are not the only things which that city has given us, and the characteristic of the aforementioned vehicle for reliability in the pinches seems to have been acquired by our Joe. Why he left a perfectly good pre-med at City College, Detroit, to wander into the labyrinth of Naval Academy life no one knows, but after knowing him for the past four years we are glad he did so. Possessing a brilliant mind that could not see the necessity of boning when a 3.2 was so easily attained, he never joined the star ranks, principally because of always insisting that books and magazines were printed to be read. A versatile character, he has been mixed up in various activities, including pepping on the pep committee, class soccer, baseball, and an occasional appearance at the hops. With a keen and appreciative sense of humor, impulsive sound judgment, neutralized by a willingness to question anything and a quick insight of human nature, Joe is a ship- mate of the first order. CLAUD WILBOURNE HUGHES " Whitey " " Sparky " " Archie " Gilham, Arkansas ARKANSAS ' gift to the Naval Academy, Whitey is a true democratic son of the soil. A bit mature d and very patient, doubtless a characteristic acquired during his long acquaintance with stubborn mules and rocky Arkansas soil, still he was able to join in our childish escapades with a quiet enthusiasm that endeared him to us. With his calm disposition and heart of gold, he sur- mounted the trivial troubles of our life and was always ready with a quiet smile and a word of cheer. Never boisterous, he became one of the fellows known as " still water. " Richly endowed by nature and well devel- oped by Arkansas, he early budded as an athlete — not of the sensational type but rather one of the pluggers who form the backbone of all teams. Football and wrestling received most of his attention, with great success. Methodical, practical and thorough, he was rated a savoir academically. Socially he was a red mike — for strange women terrorized him, though he always avowed vehemently to the contrary. Esteemed by all his friends, and with not an enemy among his acquaintances, success is certain to one so deserving.

Page Ninety-nine WILLIAM CLARE ENNIS " Bill " " Peaches " Lansing, Michigan WHO is that bashful young man with the Palmolive complexion? Whence cometh the lad with the rosy cheeks? Bill is of a quiet and unassuming disposition with 9 ready smile for his friends. He is ever ready to lend a hand, be it in the line of duty or otherwise. Our tall blond Yankee is regulation, no doubt about that, but never forgetful of his classmates, Ennis makes a sharp distinction between being " reg " and being " greasy. " We have in our midst a savoir. No one of us can remember the time when Bill found the Academics a stumbling-block. And he was always free with his information and willing to help any anchor, or near anchor, section classmates to solve the mysteries of some of the perplexing problems encountered in the Academics at the Naval Academy. Not a var- sity star, our Clare performs very creditably at lacrosse and water polo. The winning of the Harvard Shield in his Second Class year was as much a result of Bill ' s efforts as anyone else in it. Bill also helped make our Ring Dance the best little hop held in the vicinity of Annapolis since the Golden Age of Rich- ard Carvel. A quiet capable classmate, we shall miss you, Peaches, at the close of our four years together. JOHN BLAIR GRAGG " John " " Rosie " Saginaw, Michigan A NATIVE of Saginaw, Michigan, Rosie entered with the class of 1930, after a year spent at Michigan State, and Navy gained one who is characterized by common sense and that rare ability to see things as they are. Possessed of a strong individuality, Rosie has been inclined to be non-reg. He started plebe year wearing a non-reg collar and youngster year found him with pockets in his trou. Although he has done his bit on the extra-duty and awkward squads, he did re- markably well in keeping his name off the pap sheet. Academics failed to worry Rosie. Though stars did not adorn his full dress, he never had to study after taps in the shower by candle-light. From the beginning Bozo frequented the natatorium. He became a member of that famous organization known to us as the suicide club. When not occupied by water-polo or company football, his time was divided be- tween tennis, sailing and the radiator club. Sure of himself, Rosie is outwardly reserved and difficult to know intimately. But once his reserve is broken through he is a staunch and lasting friend.

" Salt Lake City, Utah THE rigorous training of Marion Institute evidently had no effect on Casey, for he arrived in Annapolis with a list to the starboard, a slight trim by the stern and a waistline that is exceeded only by his good nature. His method of locomotion is the envy of the W. B. A. (Wabble, Bump and Amble), but just the same he always gets there. Smiling always and griping continually, yet he has a (subtle) humor behind his gripes that will cover any multitude of sins. Such traits make Casey a real friend and his cheery " What ' s the matter now, Pal " — brings a ray of light to even the most down-hearted. Casey ' s life with us has run in cycles — the first three months of every term being devoted entirely to Morpheus and the last one to pull- ing sat. That last month is awful for all hands. " Well, boys, I am gone this time sure, and it ' s such a cold winter. " Like most of us, Casey has his weakness for the fairer sex — the fairer they are the weaker his resistance. Something none of us quite understood happened with one of the fairest one September — and the world seemed black indeed — but enough of that. Radiators have their attraction for S. A., but he has managed to pull away at times and play football for his class and endeavor to run the 440. Happy-go-lucky Casey, a real friend and just one of the boys. WILLIAM WATSON LOWREY " Bill " " Tex " Dallas, Texas BILL has ever been a man who is extremely likable. He seems to be perfectly natu- ral and " lets who will be clever. " Airs and pretensions can attract momentarily, but, after all, a nature will show itself. Bill ' s has. There is no attempt at playing the wit, no trying to be anyone but himself. He is the type of man we like to have around — thought- ful, interesting, considerate. The class football teams have ever found a valuable and dependable end in Bill. Aspira- tions toward tennis and even the Varsity Squad have filled his springs. Extra duty called not too frequently but the " A " Squad enrolled him as a constant member. Ever with a smile, Bill is never known to gripe, except when one of his drags fails to arrive as per schedule. Speaking of drags (for it seems that no biography of Bill ' s could be complete without some mention thereof), they are a constant source of interest to him — each one something new — each one embodying characteristics peculiar to herself — each one a puzzle to be solved in a certain definite way. Whenever there is pleasure, wit, life, we wish for Bill. He has such a thoroughly natural enjoyment of such things that we shall ever wish to share them with him. Clean Sleeve.

HAVING tasted military life in numer- ous prep schools in his earlier exist- ence, this army junior aspired to more. Distinguishing hims elf plebe summer by many new and novel ideas on how to make life desirable, Jack has continued his attempts to relieve the monotony of life, though somewhat limited to the requirements of the Executive Department. A willing and hard worker, Jack has already accomplished wonders with the Masqueraders ' business problems. Jack likewise is a teafighter of note. Any Saturday night the casual observer notices our John wandering around the Armory floor. Here is a friend in need when it comes to dragging blind. Remember when he acted as host of a certain never-to-be-forgotten party on Second Class leave? " Jasper " has wandered over many states and territories, and here, in the capital of Mary- land, our Army junior sought a four years ' respite. Lo and behold ! The pride of the First Battalion ! If you manage to drag your weary limbs up to the fourth deck you will be sure to stop and wonder at the volume of sound. It is a ten-to-one " shot " that Tony is singing in the shower again ! Old Aristides has his own ideas of romance and only time can show us Jack ' s success with objects of femininity. We feel that Dame Fortune will stick with him and spare Tony the chains of matrimony for a few years any- way. ' ALBERT ROSWELL WEST ' ' Albert " " Baby " " Jupiter " Wilson, N. C. AND here, dear reader, may I present one of the most famous men in the class, none other than A. Roswell in person, sometimes known as " West of Zanzi- bar, " " West of the Water Tower, " " West Annapolis, " and even " West Longitude. " Baby is one of the elite, in that his name is engraved on his tooth brush. Jupiter came to us from the hills of Nawth Ca ' lina — that is if Nawth Ca ' lina has hills — anyway, he came and was overjoyed to find such luxuries as shoes, full dress, and cuff- holders. Ere long he nearly floundered in the sea of matrimony but finally weathered the storm, a sadder and wiser man. Albert really does enjoy the worst of ill health, indeed a different ailment for every day in the week; Sunday it ' s his bad heart, Monday, his nose, broken twice, my dear; Tuesday his left leg gives him excruciating pain; Wednesday is sinus day, and so on down the scale for the rest of the week (weak?). Once he woke up not knowing what day it was and felt fine until the MC passed the word to " get your laundry in the corridor " whereupon West had a relapse. My God! How we ' ve suffered! (his two wives included) and yet he never has any difficulty passing the physical exams. " Hell! I ' m dragging this Saturday and I ' ve got the duty! " " That ' s all right, I ' ll stand your watch.

Several times he has been on the verge of changing his mind, notably around February and June, but he has always become reconciled to the " Ac. Depart- ments " in the long run. Although a natural born all-around athlete, he has been content to spend most of his time splashing in the swimming pool. His front one and one-half is done like Cupid emulating the spirit of Winged Victory, and you ' ll be hearing from him at the Olympics one of these days. Although he has copped just about every diving honor on the shelf, Dave ' s major sport is that of just being a good sport and a good roommate. Hard-working, cheerful, big- hearted, thoughtful of others, and blessed with a clever knack of mimicking, he makes an ideal wife. He is equally welcome in the room, whether he brings in a handful of chow or just sneaks up behind your back and tries to chew an ear off. FRANK INGERSOLL WINANT " Smiles " " Frankie " Washington, D. C. THIS smiling sea lawyer whom you be- hold blew into the Academy after spend- ing a year at Maryland as a " rat. " Even that experienc e could not break his spirit, for he began snowing us under Plebe Summer and has continued ever since, with rising crescendo. Although he cannot be accused of having spent an extra minute on his studies, he has stood near the top since the beginning of his Acad- emy career. His athletics have been confined to wrestling. While never the top man in his weight, he has stuck to it just the same and eaten toast with the rest of the bone crushers. His favorite indoor sport is to fox the professors. He invariably comes into the room after a class doubled up with laughter at the way he has made some professor look foolish. The room is seldom quiet when he is there, especially if there is anything to argue about. Frank is a bane of the Mates of Decks. A good pal and he always has plenty of clean shirts.

Fortunately, life at Tech and in the South was in accord with Mac ' s nature, and his natural courtesy, reticence, and easy-going manner constituted our first, and remained our one impression of him. He becomes serious only when necessary, and, accordingly, he lets the Academic Depart- ments have their fling before he begins to re- taliate. Athletically, he gained a permanent place on the track team in both hurdles. It used to be " girls " until a pair of blue eyes floored him youngster year. Now he is settled. " Have you heard the news, boys? She ' ll be here in — days. " Mac is headed for aviation. He has the conviction and the determination — and his feet aren ' t flat. He ' ll wear wings yet. ROSCOE LEE NEWMAN " Ros " Augusta, Georgia THE ease with which this boy avoids work and worry is a revelation. The natural aversion to work so characteristic of the Southerner has given him once or twice the opportunity to prove his ability to produce in the pinches. Academics have not received all of his attention during the four years of our stay and his liberal education has not been garnered entirely from text-books. He has broadened with the years and has gained much from the Academy. An easy-going disposition and a lazy drawl are not without their attractions; but his girls have worried him even less than his studies. Four years ' association with Ros has showed us that he has the characteristics necessary to success. At present his aspirations are con- flicting — a career in the Navy and a farm in Georgia.

To hear Bert rave, one would think that God made California, and left the rest of the universe to merely accumulate. Did you ever talk to a California!! ? Yes, girls, that demon cheer leader down in front is none other than our Albert. Caesar could get the regiment to back the team in victory or defeat. He has provided the spark that put pep in the men in the stands, and contributed in no small degree to a successful season. Bert is non-greasy, non-savvy, non-reg and capable. Caesar waxes eloquent on certain subjects and we know that he possesses a quantity of good common sense. In looking over Caesar ' s past we contem- plate a certain occasion in Chicago, and a glorious New York party. Hindrelet pos- sesses the happy faculty of being able to enjoy himself in extraordinary circumstances! You ' d be surprised at the popular indoor sports spon- sored by the Californian.

LOUIS DARBY McGREGOR, JR. " Mac ' " Sandy " " McGook " Tampa, Fla. A PRODUCT of the old South, a perfect southern gentleman, and a classmate and friend. What more could one ask? Sandy, in passing through his four trouble- some years of academic life, has had little trouble in keeping his head above the ever- rising tide of difficulties through which we have been making our way. Although not a star man he is seldom, if ever, found down in those sections where a two-five comprises the motive for much celebration. His major worry, strange as it may seem, is the fear that his gentle and persistent care of his fluffy locks has availed them naught, and he lives in constant dread of the time when he shall be forced to wend his weary way unadorned. Smile and the world smiles with you. This is obviously Sandy ' s outlook on life. It is only seldom that Mac may be seen minus his famous ear-to-ear grin; and then one may rest assured that he is concentrating deeply, not on some difficult academic problem, but, more likely, on the ponderous question of feminine company for the week-end. No, he ' s not a confirmed snake; nevertheless he ' s fond of them all, plays no favorites, and does his bit in a major way toward making each Academy- hop a huge success. 2 P.

Like all good rebels, tomorrow is time enough for anything. Though not lazy, a rather ingenious mind combined with a little hesitancy about extra work usually provides some rather in- teresting schedules of how to get around diffi- culties. Starting with a Jew ' s harp plebe summer, his attentions were alternately focused on a mandolin, banjo, accordion, swinette and frisco whistle. And he may usually be found in the center of a group of musical enthusiasts dur- ing recreation hours. Being of an unsettled nature, he looked about and tried every form of athletics, finally settling on crew as his favorite. This last accomplishment he turned to good advantage in facilitating acquaintances up the river. Along with his promotion to the training table came moans of disgust when, after a hard workout, he failed to get more than six or seven glasses of milk. And being an advo- cate of plenty of food, his foraging expeditions in the mess hall, engaged in while we were marching out, usually conspired to make his room a hangout for others not so talented at the sleight of hand. Having been born and raised in the heart of Rebeldom, he takes great pleasure in prov- ing that the rebels won the war and that Georgia girls are undoubtedly far ahead of all others. He may convince you if you happen to visit him. JAMES GRAEME LANG " Jim " " Poco " " jimmy " Mapleton, Minnesota OF Scotch forebears and harbored during adolescence in the distinctively Swedish atmosphere of Minnesota, our entry presents a marvel in complexity. Entering the Academy after a varied career of traveling salesman, bum, and prep school student, our hero joined the new class of ' 30 with the first of them. Soon after, upon the arrival of the upper classes, his dark com- plexion and Scotch-Swede complex made him instantly popular, and he ironically won the appellation of Pocahontas — later shortened to Poco. He was a member of the track team Plebe year, but a permanent injury to his javelin arm soon afterward limited his future ath- letic performances to class football. However, journalism won another convert at this time, and as a member of the " Log ' ' staff, his efforts have alleviated our hardships, Friday after Friday. His inherent quietness fosters what- ever reticence there is about him, yet he is quite hilarious on proper occasions. Possessor of that elusive and subtle art of correspon- dence to a high degree, the results will vouch that his effort has not been in vain. He is passionately fond of that indoor sport of con- demning the mail for producing advertise- ments instead of letters. As Chairman of the Pep Committee, our Jimmy had a real job considering the demands of our athletic prestige, and it was his fault as much as anyone ' s that our First Class year was filled with outstanding athletic successes 2 P.

" Monticello, Ark. »Tf ' N the Springtime, I love to rest at the Mead-Side, with a Lover like an Houn, and a Pitcher of Wine. " What a characteristic word picture of Pat. Except for the fact that it need not neces- sarily be in the Spring, and that the suggested " love interest " is not essential, this bit of philosophy from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khay- yam limns Pat ' s nature very faithfully. Aloof from academic or athletic ambitions untroubled by amorous entanglements, and unimpressed with regulations and discipline, Pat has moved nonchalantly through his lite at the Naval Academy. He has an innate desire and love for anything which involves the element of chance; he possesses a keen wit and a good sense of humor; and he ap- preciates thoroughly the joys and pleasures of life. But nothing appears of vital im- portance to him, nothing arouses his enthusi- asm, and he remains a disinterested, casual observer. Indolent, gregarious, generous, cheerful, frank, loyal, carefree, and sincere— a true gentleman, in the highest connotation of the term— this is the Pat we all know and But there is another Pat; a Pat seldom revealed; a Pat known to only a few; and a Pat of diametrically opposite nature to the languid and amiable Pat with whom we are so familiar. This Pat is serious and ambitious. He is interested and concerned; he has crea- tive ideas and high ideals; and he is gov- erned by worthy scruples and a well-denned code of ethics. This Pat is alive and deter- mined, capable and successful. This is the Pat we respect and admire. JOE SNYDER Philadelphia, Penn. BOWED down under the burden of the futility of doing anything like justice to the years or respect and admiration we have borne for Joe, we nevertheless welcome the opportunity of doing as much as possible in the brief space. Pennsylvania is a good state, and Philadel- phia has many charms. To one unacquainted with the place, the good feeling is due in total to its having produced a man like Joe. He entered the Naval Academy as a stripling of tender years and illusions, from some sev- eral of the better prep schools of the East. He came equipped, not with profound aca- demic knowledge but with the spark of victory flaming brightly within, and with a natural faculty for making friends. In consequence his labors have been arduous, but he always has risen to the occasion whenever presented and of whatever nature. However, he was never a man to let his studies interfere with his education. In the gym a potential cham- pion he was never fond enough of the sport to devote the year round effort it required. But in the social arena, Joe presents a con- stant threat. No matter how pressed with work, he always has time for a letter. He is never too busy to lend an ear and as- sistance to friends beleaguered, not in a spirit of lethargy, but out of sincere sympathy. As the slick-haired sheik, Joe is perhaps envied by us all— at least very few of us have beautiful girls who rush madly from the foot- ball stands after a game to smother us in violent embraces. However, we can under- stand Joe ' s magnetism for the feminine ele- ment as his cheery smile alone attracts all of US. ■ i • J He goes forth, a friend to be admired, an opponent to be respected, with all our good wishes and high expectations.

BOYD " Al " " Roca " " Bac " " Ole-Big-Wheel " Memphis, Tennessee WAY back when Al was a dusty trooper in the steenth Tennessee Cavalry, his trusty charger, " Louse-bound, " had the forethought to toss him gently but firmly into a nice soft gooey mudpuddle; twice the same puddle. Whereupon, he (not the horse) stood up on his hind legs and ' lowed as to how he might as well join the Navy, on ac- count of he preferred good clean salt water to the mirky mire of Mississippi mud anyhow. For three years the salt of Severn did won- ders for the lad ' s digestive system ; so much, in fact, that a special arrangement with the Executive Department was made to extend the sojourn to five years. The vengeance of the powers that be and the wrath of various deluded drags would most certainly be invoked by disclosing such grue- some details as the " system " or the unsus- pected contents of the " Little Red Book. " Such being the case, it would be unwise to mention just why Tecumseh ' s face was scrubbed and just how the case of Ellington ' s " Merry- Go-Round " was engineered on the gullible public. But, to get down to substantial known facts, Al ' s ability to intersperse business with pleasure coupled with a pleasing personality and good nature has brought, and should con- tinue to bring, him success wherever he may be. " Here ' s how, Al. " W. H. FARMER " Bill " " Roca " " Willie " Herrin, Illinois IT seems that the suburbs of Henin, Illinois, had become quite accustomed to machine guns and " pineapples " as snappy come- backs — that the inhabitants thirsted for weap- ons of larger calibre and more intricate mecha- nism, — an d thus it was that Bill discarded his puny pop-gun for the ponderous poundage of Naval Ordnance. The theory of the game never appealed to young William; in fact he always combated the academics with passive resistance rather than aggressive assimilation. A slight miscalculation of resistive force in a scheduled engagement against Kid Math re- sulted in an extra round for Kid Farmer — duration one year. Lack of space and an overpowering sense of . discretion prevents the enumeration of all the exploits, escapades and shindigs that W. H. F. could be hung for. For particulars, the curious might ask Tecumseh who the sta ' b ' d lookout was on the occasion of his decoration at 4 A.M. before one famous Army game. Or one might check up on how three Mid- shipmen dragged five femmes to a certain function at Rockland and got away with — but alas, that would be indiscreet. " Bill ' s " Naval Academy career is history; and the future of " career " is beyond the scope of this work. May the misty hues of the uncertain future match the daring contrasts of the colorful past ! Selah ! 2 P.

Page One Hundred Eight - ' ■Lift WILLIAM ELIS GENTNER " Bill " San Pedro, California HAVING been raised in a home on Point Firmin in San Pedro, from the back porch of which he could throw a base- ball out on the quarterdeck of the flagship of the battle fleet, it seems only natural that what he threw and when he threw it both go a long way toward indicating just what environment will do for one. Suffice to say, Bill chose the Naval profession for his voca- tion and baseball for his avocation; and there you have the man in brief. When he isn ' t being " all-Navy, " which, by the way, is an instinctive classification, the hard-working boy seemingly concentrates him- self to dreaming, playing and living baseball. He is a clean-up batter, and a fixture in center field. Always a loyal Southern Californian, he has gazed on strange scenes, and found them attractive, but wanting; and " scenes " does not necessarily imply real estate alone. A good man in everything he sets his mind on doing, his after every recitation report of " That ' s that! " and the fact that he knew what " that " was all about, make him a very cheer- ful and mighty handy man to have about when the problems, plus a certain factor, failed to come out right for the plodding brethren; for help was always forthcoming to all comers. A man with his career at heart, all-absorb- ing in his duties, and a perfect " classmate are qualities that will lead Bill to the pinnacle of success. For face and story, study the man who is portrayed above, and look at all the record below, add his motto of " Everything happens for the best " — and there is Bill.

Origin, previous occupation — Another sun-kissed Californian made by early removal from Tennessee. The sea habit was developed long before gracing this institution by a be- tween (here-and-there) year spent walking the bridges of palatial liners. 2. Leisure Time— Always going somewhere rapidly, each season finding Steve busy. For gym he pounds the mat with great gusto be- tween monkey-like antics on the rope. Har- vard Shield points were helped when a few lucky passes dropped into his waiting arms in the football flurries. Discovery of the rest cure across College Creek was indeed a Spring activity. . , , i 3. Cranial Capabilities— After the usual statement " What a beating this will be!

Page One Hundred Nine ELMER JACKSON DUNN " Jack " Van Buren, Arkansas HE was born in Texas, reared in most of the states of the midwest, appointed from Arkansas and is now quite satis- fied with Annapolis and its environs. Yet he joined the Navy so he wouldn ' t have to stay in one place too long. Jack is not one of those fortunate indi- viduals who were born to succeed without an effort, but it is apparently no handicap to this young man. His willingness to spend the necessary ergs aroused by that first math toll have proved the necessary combination to carry him through the rough spots of the academic course. Jack is a real red mike during the academic year, spending his time in pursuit of the elu- sive 2.5, but we are compelled to admire his choice on the cruise. His knowledge of Crab- town is astonishing and hardly a day passes but someone comes around wanting to know the whereabouts of some obscure street and they all leave satisfied. Jack ' s good nature and his willingness to give one a hand at anything have made him a host of friends and will doubtless win him a reputation in the fleet as a good shipmate. DOYLE MURRAY COFFEE " Java " Anniston, Alabama AFTER spending a year at Alabama Poly, Java decided to forsake his sunny state and see what the Navy had to offer. One prolonged blast at proper intervals, a quiet, friendly disposition and an unruffled calm have been Java ' s chief aids during his years with us. Any situation that may arise will find that he has truly solved the problem of how to enjoy life, with the least amount of worry or care. Ac ' s and the Executive Departments have never bothered him, but the Athletic Depart- ment proved itself less kind, " Fall in, the Sub and Weak Squad " always found Java on hand, smiling and wondering why anyone should have to be a contortionist to graduate. Doyle never fails to greet his friends with a smile, and, never being garrulous, whenever he opens his mouth words of wisdom come forth to greet the throng. Quiet and unas- suming, we behold in " Java " the typical Southerner. With his ready smile, and willingness to do what is to be done, Doyle is entering the fleet with his course directed toward a successful and honorable service career.

Maybe that is the reason that his name burst into print so promptly, and so it has been doing more or less ever since, he and the Executive Depart- ment playing tag each year, sometimes he being " it, " and sometimes not. The rough roads and pitfalls of the Aca- demic Departments have never bothered him because he possesses a keen and agile academic mind. Always willing to give help, and thus aid some less lucky individual, he has received the gratitude of several. Socially, the boy is there. Though not a " snake, " neither is he a " Red Mike, " and his " pardon m_ Indv, mv name is Arwine, " will always be remembered in his zeal for making friends. In athletic activities, " Curly " has not been one of the foremost, but he has put forth honest and determined effort on the soccer field and in 150-pound crew, along with vari- ous company sports. In all, he is a classmate well worth having, and will always be a welcome shipmate be- cause of the sunny disposition, friendliness, and " true blue " Navy spirit. HAROLD PATRICK WESTROPP " Sally " " Rover " " Barbarosa " Cleveland, Ohio " OALTY " learned his first steamship by S sailing miniature ships in a bathtub dur- fc - ing his youth at Fort Wayne, Indiana. He heard the far-off call of the sea, spent one year in the Navy, during which he learned the sea-knowledge of the ages, and then he came to join us as " Barbarosa, " the greatest seaman of all times. Many a time has he heard and heeded the words of the Powers That Be — " Fall in, the Extra Duty Squad. " However, when the aforementioned pastime was not re- quired, " Salty " would head for the gate, and town, to make himself dear to the heart of some fair Crab. Never have the femmes been able to hold his attention, for his moods are as changeable as the winds of the Seven Seas. Only once he stumbled, and then because of a losing race with the Jimmy-legs in the wee hours of a spring morning. " Barbarosa " joined Spike Webb ' s prodigies and for two years followed the ways of the pugs, but quit for the harder fight of showing the " Ac " Departments his true worth. He did, and thrice came up on the sunny side of a 2.495. Salty will be a great asset to the Old Navee — and, as a friend, he has a heart o ' gold. " Hey! " Any youse guys seen that box of red pills?

IF you see someone walking ahead with a gait that reminds one of a cross between a duck waddle and the roll of a ship, you will know it is Walter. For further iden- tification feel the knot at the base of his skull. Yell " Hey, Ferdie, " and you will get a growl. He thinks he ' s hard. One glance and that jolly rotundity of his can suggest only beer and pretzels. Waldo was never able to give any reasons for coming here, but rumors have it that he was a rare old bird on the outside, and he even had his own orchestra. Still he turned liis back upon it, leaving weeping maidens with not so much as a smile to remind them of him. Walter had two great weaknesses, the four- forty and the rope climb. His life ruled by great passions and love, lots of us have failed to penetrate Ferdie ' s inner thoughts, but we know that Prien has the courage of his con- victions and we expect big things of him. Just watch the sea dust fly when he gets in the Fleet ! The Dutchman may become seasick at the earlier stages of his Naval career, but he will never lose his sunny disposition or his love for the service. Walter tells us that he is climbing for the top of the ladder. May •success carry him to the four-starred flag. NICHOLAS JACOB PUSEL " Nick " " Puzzle " Grafton, North Dakota A RATHER willing and somewhat worldly wise lad was he when once more feel- ing the urge of the sea, which he had known as a boy, Nick left North Dakota to enter the Academy. He brought with him, among other things, a love of distances. A true disciple of Nurmi and Ritola, he has traveled many miles while in the Academy. In the fall he was to be seen jogging over hill and dale with the har- riers. When snow covered the ground he shifted the scene of his performances to the boards behind the gym and after the thaw to the cinders on Farragut Field. In the summer it was a mighty good liberty boat that could shove off with Puzzle still half a block away. Nick had the jump on the Academic De- partments. Try as they might they could not quite catch up with him. His work while not consistently stellar was punctuated by flashes of genius. By no means a " red mike, " in the strict sense of the word, Nick confines his serious- ness with the fair sex to his mother and sister. " Puzzle " has proved himself a hard worker and a man blessed with unusual stick-to-it-ive- ness. He has the application that will help him get along in the fleet. Orchestra 4, 3, 2 ; N. A.

Although we do not know ex- actly what Mac was famous for back home, to us he is noted for his congenial way of attracting friends and holding them. Plebe Summer was enough to convince him that carrying a " Springfield " isn ' t a pleasant job, so he joined the " Hell Cats. " Although not disgustingly savvy, the trees seldom bore his name, and he is endowed with the dili- gence to work hard and to achieve what he undertakes. As an athlete, the tennis courts are his home. He also proved himself a good manager. Win- ter afternoons kept him busy at the pistol gallery encouraging the boys to make hits for the Second Company. Mac has no particular dislike for the fairer sex. He seldom missed a hop and could always find a " Crab " to drag, even at the last moment. But down in his heart there was always a tender spot for the O. A. O. back home. JOSE VILLAGRACIA ANDRADA " Joe " " Andy ' " Drydock " Ivisan, Capiz, Philippines IT was a long four years ago when a cable- gram came to a little town in the Island of Panay, with orders for one, Jose Vil- lagracia Andrada to report to the United States Naval Academy. It will be an even greater day when Joe returns. Joe came to us after having spent four years at Silliman Institute and one at th e University of the Philippines. He has more than made his stay with us a pleasant one. He is known to all of us as a cheerful, fun-loving chap, always singing his blues away. If he could not understand a prob he would pipe up " Fruit " and go after it all the harder. His yelp of " Git Outchir " was always a sign of welcome. Box? — He missed his man once in a class fight and threw his shoulder out of joint! He was no snake but far from a Red Mike. Joe has high am- bitions and we expect him back in the States before long, specializing, probably in electric- ity. We have an idea, however, that he will bring his inspiration along with him the next time. 2 P.

He realizes the humor, or irony, of a situa- tion when, apparently, everything possible has gone wrong. Then his smile broadens, his eyes begin to sparkle, and he starts the some- times difficult task of reconciling his room- mates to their fates. Realizing the great value of swimming in a naval officer ' s life, he has spent many hours in perfecting this art; indeed many of them were spent in the company of his equally inspired roommates. Neither distinguishing himself by " starring " nor by low marks, he has managed to enjoy his years here. Fickle, as all of us, he often has inspirations for spectacular things, yet, also like all of us — just a trifle too easily dis- illusioned. Knowing both his merits and faults we like him all the more; always just what you expect a real pal to be. May fate cause our paths to cross often in the future! ROBERT THEODORE SUTHERLAND, JR. ' Bob " " Fats " " Venus " Denver, Colorado THE Western Union Telegraph Company lost one of its proteges when Bob be- came one of Uncle Sam ' s pampered pets. Bob left his beloved land — " Where snow- capped mountain peaks towering heavenward, pierce the turquoise sky and catch the first glad glimpse of the morning sun " — to become one of us. As a Plebe he enjoyed immense popularity with the first class. At every opportunity he was giving them the pleasure of his delight- ful company. Youngster year found him well toward the top of ' 30 and being naturally savvy he had no trouble with the Academic Departments. He has a knack of doing the required things in the easiest way. He knows what he wants and sets about to get it in the most efficient manner. This accounts for his being a Hell- cat for two years. To some, who know not the true " Fats, " his methods of working may seem lackadaisi- cal; but to those who understand his idiosyn- crasies and appreciate his humor, " Fats " ap- pears in his true light — always ready to do his share and lend a helping hand — if he doesn ' t have to hurry.

" Monty " " Mac " " Scotchman " Fayette, Missouri WHEN Mac heard of the Naval Acad- emy and the existence of ships and oceans, he was behind a pair of mules plowing corn down in Missouri. The reason for his coming to Neptune ' s Royal Palace is still unknown, yet he realized that here was the place of opportunity to obtain an edu- cation. He used to be quite a farmer, and in the good old days of his plebedom, he won a hog-calling contest, in which he met with con- siderable competition from many other fresh- men from the rural districts. Every morning Mac ' s pillow would be found in any place but under his head. Down on the farm hay was much more comfortable. Lack of the alfalfa fragrance in the air may be the explanation of his nocturnal sonor- ous tones. Mac is not a star man, but he can easily accomplish the job. We should not overlook the more serious side of his nature and his accounting ability ; in fact he still has the first three dollars that he drew plebe sum- mer. These Scotch characteristics combined with aggressiveness and his ability to judge human nature point to a successful naval career for the future Admiral from Fayette. JAMES LORENZO THIBAULT " Chubby " " Thighblatt " " T-Bone " Scott, Arkansas WITH hair beginning to thin from years of experience and study, Chubby gave his matuted talent to us as unofficial adviser of his class in the second company. His rosy complexion extends from the very top of that high forehead to his collar, and even beyond, when encountered out of uni- form in the corridor. He remains unabashed when reminded of his rotundity gained from accumulated unwasted hours in the messhall. As chief vice-mechanician of the room he scorns the lowly process of furnishing power for the musical entertainment of those not blessed with living in the " B " room, but his lack of generosity in labor is fully compensated by his supplying cigarettes for the whole deck. We were seated at an executive lecture. The company officer continued, " And gentle- men, you must be more careful with your language. Where ' s Thighblatt? " Not a wearer of the coveted stripes, " Chubby " carries his buzzard like an Admiral. We can think of no one who will make a bettet officer. Popular with his classmates, respected by everyone, he should go far in the service. " T-Bone " is good natured, unas- suming and capable. " There are more good looking women in one county in Arkansas " — etc. 2 P.

California IN addition to being a native son, Rosy was pretty much of an old salt when he joined us ; so as plebes, we used to be enter- tained with some truly remarkable tales. We don ' t know whether or not his sea- going life gave him his " head for Aggers, " but we do know that one of our most formi- dable departments gave him little to worry about with its two and a half years of attack. Observantly, but not apologetically, quiet, still he is apt to get " riled " upon provoca- tion but you ' ll seldom find he is in the wrong. Rosy ' s not the sort of chap that will tell you how good he is; but whether he is helping his classmates in the solution of a difficult Math prob, or the winning of the Harvard shield, you ' ll learn that there is no one more thoroughly capable of producing results than he. He takes a real live interest in his profes- sion and if it ' s information you ' re looking for, he is sure to have it. We won ' t predict his future as a " howling success " ; he ' s too quiet to be associated with any howling, but he will do well in anything he does. WILLIAM BAGGERLY McKEAN ' Admiral " " Mac " " Nosedive " Salt Lake City, Utah MAC wandered into the Administration Building one June morning completely master of the situation. Since that time he has always been master of the situa- tion — no matter what it was. Those pink cheeks and good-natured coun- tenance give the lie to the dynamic efficiency and undoubted ability of the man who pos- sesses them. He has ever had the reputation of a savoir. The small amount of worry that the Academic Departments have been able to scare up for him has left him to a large extent free for non-academic activities. The Regiment has gurgled over many an athletic description in the Log that was a-dripping from McKean ' s redoubtable pen. Swimming has always held a vague fascination for him and diving has given him pleasure second to nothing else. When spring rolls around and feet are being placed up on the radiators, Mac breaks out the trusty rifle and helps fill the old hill across the river with lead. Mac is a true friend — no good news is complete without his sharing it, no trouble deep enough for him not to shoulder more than his sbare. Class Baseball 4, Class Football 3, Two Stripes. C. P.

SINCE early childhood has been mi- grating between Missoula and Washing- • ton, D. C. Because of a lack of a per- manent residence, his early education was obtained in bits here and there, though he finally graduated from Western High School with an exceptionally brilliant record. In the Academy, Phil has continued to dis- play the ability of his high school days and consistently stands number one in his class. He has not, however, neglected other aspects of academy life and afternoons find him on the soccer field, on the tennis courts, or re- hearsing with the Masqueraders. On week ends, he may or may not be dragging. There are some who say he has a secret sorrow, some far away lass, who knows? Congenial, cheerful, always with a smile or a joke for his acquaintances, ready at anytime to help those less fortunate than himself with the Academic Departments, it is small wonder that this slight youth ranks high in the esti- mation of his friends and classmates. Those who know him more intimately recognize other qualities: his tireless energy, his tenacity of purpose, his ability to concentrate, and his acute insight into human nature and its prob- lems. An officer at heart and a " savoir " in mind. These attributes have carved for him an enviable record here, and insure a career srudded with worthy achievements in the Fleet. PAUL WILKINSON HANLIN " Pooch " " Pablo " Roseville, California A COSMOPOLITE. Born on the plains of Dakota, raised in the Islas Filipinas, intended for the University of Cali- fornia, he ' s been in nearly every state at one time or another, always leaving behind a widening trail of friends. A glance at Pooch ' s daily fan mail will convince anyone of the extent of his acquaintances. Pablo is one of those murderous amphibians who uphold our reputation in the natatorium. Most any day in the winter he may be seen engaged in a submarine scrimmage with, and offering vigorous physical discouragement to some unfortunate candidate for Navy ' s water polo squad. He, in some way, keeps the Academic De- partments beyond striking range, in spite of the fact that he does not believe in studying between meals. As regards the opposite sex, Pablo is O M N X. In other words, his O. A. O. is sub- ject to change without notice. These are indications, however, that having broken a large but finite number of hearts, having seen enough of the Others, he will eventually cling to the One. Generous, playful, friendly, pugnacious, frank. When there ' s a party or a fight, Pooch is always in it. And he ' s bound to be known and be popular wherever he goes. 2 P.

What? Never heard of Winona? Neither had anyone else till T. D. came along. Now we never hear of anything else. It must be Utopia. He belongs to the class who can ' t be seen through easily. Socially, he didn ' t go in for high honors at the Academy, but if his drag- ging was limited it was only because his asso- ciations with the unfair sex are of national rather than of local nature, or because he was serving extra duty. T. D. isn ' t given to hurried decisions and only after long deliberation did he decide that a naval career was his chosen profession. But once decided, he never lacked enthusiasm, and was always searching for new knowledge. Be- ing adept at almost anything in general and being blessed with a certain " flue de bouche " and a personality which lacks nothing, it is easy to see that his choice was not far wrong. A hard and willing worker who finds joy in the working; the Directorship of the Juice Gang was his by right of merit and ability. The new stage control board is a monument to his ingenuity, his unceasing effort and unthanked services. CHARLES HERMAN ADOLPH ROHR " Rip " " Charley " " Sonny " Brooklyn, New York RIP came to the Naval Academy from Cooper Institute of Technology. The change in schools was accompanied by a change in his speech for he left the " toity- toid " street lingo behind, and at once acquired culture in the form of a suspicious Southern accent. However, he did bring his cheer) ' smile and immaculate appearance. In addition to these virtues, plebe and youngster years were materially brightened by Rip ' s ability with a ukulele. He has never had to worry about academics although he always did take them seriously. One would almost believe that he had a pur- pose in view — that of getting the coveted sheepskin. Charley was always able to stand well up near the leaders, no matter how difficult the " math, " nor how lost at sea most of the boys were in " nav. " Everyone has various weaknesses and one of his, it seems, is not in the least unusual, simply a case of being able to be bothered by femmes. Football is another, and he has been one of the mainstays of the " B " squad each year. The latter bodes well for Rip ' s future in the service; for no one can take the knocks there without building that character so necessary to the successful naval officer. 2 P.

Those four years were put to good advantage in living a sometimes carefree, but nevertheless profitable life as a Midshipman. The academic departments were the least ot his worries; for he always had plenty of re- serve to come back with the knockout blow, despite the fact that he felt a bit groggy at times. , In some of his spare moments he upheld the honor of his class in athletics. Remember that championship football team? Various and sundry company teams also required his stellar performances in order to complete suc- cessful seasons. Not wishing to join the radiator squad, he devoted other spare moments to the task of trying to determine the modulus of elasticity of a regulation bed. Not a snake, not a Red Mike, not savvy, not wooden, not a devil, not an angel, but a generous, good-natured, fun-loving lad we are all proud to call a friend. Smilin " Bob! NYLE LOUIS BLEMKER " Nick " " Cleo " Davenport, Iowa NICK came to the Academy, a somewhat shy, good-hearted tall cornlander with a head full of beautiful illusions and a good stock of clear-cut, far-reaching ideals. He ' s still good-hearted, and still retains and stands by his ideals. He is also ambitious, as his " Buzzard ' Second Class year and many other things tes- tify. In fact he has been something of a " Jack of all trades " during his four years here but has definitely disproved the " Master- of-none " corollary. As Glee Club member and chorister he has been a valuable asset to the regiment. Song, we may add, is his forte — his natural outlet, vocation, and recreation. " Let ' s snatch us off some harmony. " An athlete as well, Nick has tried his hand at most sports in one form or another. Foot- ball, basketball, track, and lacrosse,— company, class and varsity,— have kept him busy, so busy in fact, that the academics have now and then stolen a march on him. But in spite of his intermittent one-sided correspondence with the Superintendent, he has managed al- ways to come through with plenty to spare. Patient, sympathetic, loyal — this is Nick, a real friend. Laughing, singing, fun-loving— this is Nick, a great companion. 1 P. O. ; Class Football 3, 2 ; Class Boxing 2 ; Varsity Boxing Squad 1. G.

It took him all plebe summer to convince us that it did actually snow six feet deep in Milo. Since then he has carried his point, even with the Academic Departments. The Civil War was a mild event compared to Murph ' s war on Math. In spite of three helpful letters from the " Supe, " he overthrew the joke of sines and integrals and by the middle of Sec- ond Class year it was all fruit. Because of such great activity along aca- demic lines, Artie has not had much time for athletics. From the first of plebe year, he showed his ability in company track, and a little time and practice would soon see him on the wrestling squad. Artie would have all of us believe that he is a confirmed " Red Mike, " but almost every mail brings him letters in an unmistakably feminine handwriting. There is but one con- clusion, either an " O. A. O. " or a whole girl ' s school completely " snowed-under. " " What! only three letters? " " Who hid the rest of my mail ? " GEORGE GOLDSTON PALMER " G. G. " " George " TlMMANSVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA UP from the Sunny South there came a dark-haired boy with sparkling brown eyes, and a warm and sunny smile, to learn about the ways of the sea. This same amiable smile and cheerful disposition helped carry him through plebe year, and made him many lasting friends. Being naturally inclined toward gymnasium work, " G. G. " went out for the team plebe year. Here, in his favorite sport, he did some splendid work, despite a twisted knee which placed him out of competition youngster year, and became one of Navy ' s best tumblers. " G. G. " is the type of fellow who will drag your girl ' s roommate to the hop, or other- wise help you out of difficulties, if he can. Cheerful and serious, industrious but not a grind, George devotes time and consideration to academics, athletics and social activities — according to each its due merit. George uses his head about everything; one of those who, naturally cautious, always stops, looks and listens. Our hero has an excellent taste for feminine pulchritude, but his caution probably has saved him from that dire fate so common to the young officer fresh from the convent.

HANSON ' Burt " " Swede " " Banjo-eyes " Grand Haven, Michigan FOUR years ago Burt arrived in Annapolis full of determination to follow the trails of the sea, in the wake of his Nordic ancestors. Seven personal letters, in which rhe Superintendent " viewed with alarm " and " noted with concern " dampened, but did not extinguish that desire. The " math " depart- ment nearly eliminated him on five separate occasions, and French almost earned a deci- sion once; but each time his guardian angel stepped in and saved him for further trials and tribulations. Burt was the second man in the class to pass his " A " swimming test, and this little success turned him to swimming. He was undefeated plebe year, and has continued to do good work ever since. Neither studies nor the ladies have been al- lowed to interfere with his more serious work at the Academy. Books are his life and maga- zines his diversion. Studies are not even thought of until the night before the examina- tion, and ladies are taboo. Burt is a different man on the cruise, however. During these summer outings he becomes a typical sailor- man, with the traditional " girl in every port. " We have given Burt the tests of friendship and he has passed them all. We have bor- rowed his shirts, spent his money, trumped his ace, and eaten his chow, not to mention a score of other things. We like him — he is our friend. IP, O.; M. P.

This biography could end right here, but for the sake of filling space the conventional two hun- dred words will be written. Like all Baltimore boys he knew more about the Naval Academy before he entered than most first classmen know when they graduate. He had decided to be five striper, captain of the football team, sttoke of the crew, and pitcher of the baseball team, but had to give up the others because they interfered with his handball. His academics were above reproach, and had it not been for a little battle with the Execu- tive Department his " youngster " year he would have " starred " all of his four years at the Academy. His studying, so far as the aca- demics were concerned, was for the purpose of helping his wooden classmates, or merely a means of passing time. However, he did spend a good deal of time poring over Shake- speare, Kipling, and Mark ' s Handbook. Math was his strong suit, and as far as can be deter- mined he is the only midshipman that has proven to the math department that they make mistakes. Bob was quite the amorist, and many of his few sleepless evening study hours were spent laboring over his lyrical letters of love — to one girl.

" Bob " " Bobby " Monroe, Louisiana YOUNG, proud, romantic, outspoken, in- different, popular. He goes lightly through life with his head high — a boy and a man at once. He can study when neces- sary, but such is rarely the case. He is a Southerner with a good disposition and a sharp tongue which he hopes some day to put to use in law. Argumentative — and reluctant to be driven to do anything — generous and versatile, he plays tennis well, and can per- form in any sport from billiards to wrestling. Non-reg and lucky — a wonderful combination. Cheerful and carefree, we can find him at the •h ps " — nonchalant — a good sport on all oc- casions. He loves to sleep — and yet when occasion demands, can concentrate immediately — ener- getically. These spells, however, are quickly swept away. He soon becomes a boy again, read y to swap wisecracks. He can lose and regain his temper in five minutes — quick to tell you what he thinks of you, he is not a flatterer. A good friend, a regular fellow. Such is the man Robert William Germany — such is the boy " Bobby. " HUGH CHARLES HAYNSWORTH, JR. " Hugh " " Shudder " Sumter, South Carolina ONE often wonders why this imaginative youth forsook the peace and quiet of his former carefree existence for that of a midshipman. Perhaps ambition, or better still, he may have been searching out the meaning of some strange reverie. However, Hugh has made no radical changes, and he continues to lead his own carefree life regard- less of studies, regulations, and the will of those about him. His artistic temperament is given full outlet in the literary publications, and his drawings are always a welcome addition to the Log and Lucky Bag. Hugh takes an active interest in all athletics and performs best in such as golf, tennis and swimming, which will prove to be of greatest assistance in life beyond the Academy. But dancing is his favorite pastime, and a new step is a problem of life, and one to be mastered as soon as possible. He has the warmth and charm of the South, and his personality has won him many friends. He loves the South, its traditions and its girls. He likes to take a chance and above all to put off things until the last moment, then to the surprise of everybody getting good results. 2 P. O. ; Tennis 4, 3, 2 ; Numerals 3, 2. 2 P.

" Bill " Baltimore, Maryland BILL, a Baltimore youth, answered the call of the sea long before his youngster cruise. He made several trips on Eagle boats and on our last monitor, the old Chey- enne, which was assigned to the Maryland State Naval Reserve before she was scrapped. Perhaps it was on board this vessel of the old Navy that Bill learned the art of being a good shipmate; and certainly no one has learned it better. On the mat and in the ring. Bill has always displayed plenty of the tight which is to be expected from the owner of such a name. His appearance, too, is worthy of a Doyle, for he is gifted with all of the manly beauty which only an Irishman can use to advantage. Bill is a real worker and his faithful appli- cation has brought him steady rise in class standing from year to year. This perseverance and determination, together with its accom- panying success is only another manifestation of his good old Irish character. WILLIAM S. POST, JR. " Bill " Los Angeles, California BILL decided several years ago that the life of a sailor was the life for him, and the Naval Academy and the career of a naval officer became his ultimate goal. With this end in view he left his sunny California and joined the Navy. Not so long afterwards, his smiling face was gracing the halls ot Bancroft, and it would require more than a hard battle with academics to erase this natu- ral facial expression. Bill is gifted with an unusual amount of determination, which is a proper quality for a fighter. In the ring he gives and takes like the man that he is, and it requires more than a re-exam in both youngster " math " and " steam " to quench his fighting spirit. He is now determined to cut his class number in two, and he ' ll accomplish just that. Wherever he is Bill will have some im- portant business to perform and we all sin- cerely hope that she gives him the answer he rates. " " =5 ? 2 P.

He puts the same sparkle and humor in everything he tackles, and there is music in his soul. He is ever the first to start the " vie ' ' in the morning to lighten the ordeal of getting up, and we shall not forget the times that we have heard that rich (?) (tenor, he calls it) above the noise of the Saturday shower, " in profuse strains of un- premeditated art. " Ed has never been afraid of hard work — work with definite plan and purpose. But somehow the old human weakness too often stole in when books were forgotten. Conse- quently we see no stars on his collar. Then there is that stubbornness of purpose in him. characteristic of a determined person. There will be but few men perhaps that will leave the Academy better equipped or more eager to b ecome a successful officer. EDWARD SEABURY CARMICK " Ed " " Julius " " Eddie " Washington, D. C. FROM the glamour of the nation ' s capitol came Ed " to the restful quietness of Bancroft-by-the-Severn, after spending a year in the Navy. He earned a reputation for being " savvy " by starring plebe year, so academics have held no terror for him. To combine academics with athletics he has held a permanent berth on the boxing team. A gentleman fighter we could call him when we regard his knowledge of good literature and music. His thoughtfulness of others and a pleasant nature are traits of his character that will serve him well in his future career. Somebody must have told him that " Ladies Prefer Blondes, " for lo and behold, an auburn blonde appeared where a brunette had been soon after one Christmas leave. But even that could not change his stable characteristics. Without undue pride we can look back on his accomplishments and predict a successful fu- ture. 1 P. O. ; .

WE are told that in the late spring of nineteen hundred and eight or there- abouts, the population of the thriving town of Downsville, New York, was increased from 250 to 251. Thus " Eph " came in to the limelight for the first time. He was carefully educated and brought up, until one day, Plebe summer, who should demand entrance at Num- ber Two gate but the Downsville Boy himself, bag and all ready for an extended stay. Eph has a leaning toward medicine, and can he cure colds??? Ask the man he ' s cured ! But when he heard the call of the sea, and was willing to try anything once, the doctors lost a possible colleague. Sad to relate, Eph is a confirmed Red-Mike. Poker and books and Cosmo keep him away from many of the hops. " Even if she were a 4.0, I wouldn ' t drag! " In addition to being the leading drawback on his company eleven, and to boxing on the side, Eph has been a regular member of the Lacrosse " A " squad every year. Then we must not forget that Eph is a talented musi- cian, an artist with the potato whistle. It is said that practice makes perfect— yes! a per- fect nuisance.

" T DON ' T see anything funny in that " ; but later Jimmie might be discovered - - alone in a pensive mood and the careful observer would notice his puzzled expression change to a little smile of comprehension. English in his humor; Scotch in his finances; these characteristics serve merely to accentuate the genuineness and other fine points of his makeup. Cheerful and agreeable always— he gained the plebe sobriquet of " Sunshine. " Industrious and diligent — he was always be- sieged a few minutes before math class by a group of " Cosmo " addicts. Being an Army Junior and gaining his basic officer training at C.M.T.C. and from the " Plattsburg Manual, " it was but natural to expect that he should further his groundwork by fencing when he came here. Judging by his accomplishments in that line, he certainly should be, and we know that he will be, an excellent officer. As for qualifying as a gentleman — the other requisite of a good executive — Congress need not have passed that legislative act, which has become a banal expression among midshipmen, as far as Jimmie is concerned.

FROM out in the Mid-West where the largest thing that floats is a flat-bot- tomed Mississippi River scow, Al heard the call of Neptune and came to see what Uncle Sam could offer in the way of water travel. He " prepped " at Hall ' s War College, and seems to have made a good job of it, as he never has to worry about his Academics. Fall always finds him out on Worden Field chasing a soccer ball around, and the rest of the year finds him in the gym with a hand- ball or out on the track. He says the ladies never worry him, but there are quite a few letters on pink stationery, and never a hop passes that you don ' t find the Dutchman right out in front. He ' ll bear watching. Cruises to Al are just things to be borne or rather slept, but he is always bright and ready for leave. Next to sleeping he likes best to argue. All you have to do is say something and Al ' s right there with the other side of the question, and when it comes to getting the best of him he ' s just as stubborn as a Missouri mule. But with all his sins he is still our red-nosed little Dutchman and our pal Bud.

He has tamed the wild volts and amperes with the Juice Gang for three years, building signs that rivaled Broadway ' s. His ready smile pulle d him through plebe year and youngster cruise, and his ability as a song and dance man enlivened many a gathering, an especially memorable one being in 1254, plebe summer. His hobby and long suit is swimming and diving, with the possible addition of sleeping. For three years and a half he has been trying to find something that will grow hair, but he has only mediocre success; but hair or no hair he is still our boy and we shall always love our Andy Jack.

Page One Hundred Twenty-seven JOHN BAGLEY DIMMICK " John " " Gimmick " East Tawas, Michigan WHEN we first met John, Plebe Sum- mer, the outstanding thing we no- ticed about him was his everlasting good humor. He hasn ' t changed. Always ready for fun, work never seems to bother him. Although he claims he is immune to serious affairs of the heart, we expect to see him among the first of the domesticated. Just ask him where all of his pictures went Second Class Christmas leave — And he swears he wasn ' t giving any away outside the family, but we ' ve learned to take all his statements about such things with the proverbial grain of salt. He breezes into the room, " Golly! where did all my skags go to? " He always has his own decided views on everything, and he will argue on what kind of cheese the moon is made of. He takes his lessons or leaves them as the fancy strikes him. Gimmick ' s biggest fault is his ferocious ap- petite, although there is also some doubt as to whether his feet are mates. He ' s a man of parts — but on second thought, we remember that quite a few are missing. But his heart is the biggest part of his make-up and that overcomes most of his faults. Athletically, John likes his lacrosse and handball, and he also aspires to Nurmishness. But athlete or no athlete, he ' s a pal and a friend and every- one that comes in contact with him feels deeply the innate attractiveness of the man. But, gentle reader, that is not all, for Gim- mick has his semi-serious periods. That part of his make-up situated between the ears functions rapidly and well. His battles with the Academic Departments were never in doubt. His friendship is one well worth having. ROYAL ALLEN WOLVERTON " Rof " Woof Nowata, Oklahoma ROY graduated from high school in the summer of 1925. Although he had been one of the big toots in the school band, a musical career didn ' t seem to impress him. His big brother, who was about to begin his last year at the Academy, influenced him to follow in his footsteps and become a Naval officer. So Roy gathered his belongings and boarded a passing freight and a few days later arrived in Annapolis. After a discouraging year spent in writing to every Senator and Representative from Key West to Nome he finally succeeded in getting an appointment and entered late in August, missing most of the pleasures and hardships of a " plebe summer. " " Woof " believes in taking the ladies seri- ously, but he really can ' t be bothered with more than one at a time. He doesn ' t believe that " safety in numbers " applies in all cases. He enjoys good music and good books al- though the Academic Departments have given him very little time to spend on either. Nevertheless, he has found time to become fairly familiar with many of the great men of other days. He likes to sit and dream, to imagine himself in other worlds and other walks of life, and will do so by the hour unless someone brings him rudely back to earth. Roy ' s sunny disposition, even temper and ever-ready smile have carried him over the rough spots of Academic life. Add his keen sense of humor, high code of honor and gen- erally ambitious nature and you have a com- bination that is " Woof. " 2 P.

" Buff " " Simo " Newport, Rhode Island BUFF is the descendant of a long line of Naval Officers and so it was only natural for him to choose the Navy for his career. A cosmopolite by force of circum- stances, Buff is a Californian by preference. Unless you are feeling exceptionally argumen- tative don ' t mention California to him, for he will corner you and tell you about the wonders of the Pacific Coast ad infinitum. Severn School claims him among her distinguished alumni, but Buff managed to star plebe year and to stand high the rest of the time in spite of the fact. As a back-stroke swimmer, Simo had no trouble making the swimming team plebe year; and youngster year he gained a berth on the varsity team which he kept for every season. Aside from swimming, his principal occupation is giving first aid and comfort, in the shape of extra instruction, to the worshipers of Tecumseh. Among other achievements. Buff holds the world ' s record for the lowest blind- drag average ever made. " Oh, all right, but has " she personality:- ' ' ' Paradoxical as it may seem, Simo is both an idealist and a pessimist— a hard worker, loyal, lovable, and generous to a fault.

From the time he stole his first soccer ball at the age of ten he made up his mind to become a midshipman and show the world he was good for something. He has traveled the world over, but like every human being he has a place he calls home. To him Washington, D. C, is the only place to be. Paul went to Severn, where his red hair and friendly manners soon won him the respect and friendship of all present. It was there that his tenacity of purpose procured him a position on the school soccer team. From then on he has progressed by easy stages from can- didate to midshipman to ensign and from one OA.O to another. He isn ' t fickle because he loved them all. He has been a varsity soccer man four years and won an All-American position his young- ster year. Nor has he failed to support the class or company when a good man was wanted to swim or play lacrosse. Then, too, he was one of the Utah ' s famous " Owls ' ' — Down with the Shotguns.

Page One Hundred Ttcenly-nine RUSSELL LLOYD " Whitef " Rus " Chatham, New Jersey WHEN " Whitey " entered the Naval Academy the field of the motion pictures lost a blonde Viking hero of no little ability. One of the more persistent directors, however, did not accept this as final and has since secured intimate glimpses of the " Apollo Belvedere " in his more native haunts. Beginning early in his Youngster year, " Whitey " established his name in football his- tory by picking up a fumble in the last few seconds of play of the Colgate game and com- pleting the longest run of the year for a touchdown which, as it later proved, enabled the Navy team to finish its season as National Champions. The end of " Whitey ' s " football career consisted of » performance of no less brilliance than that mentioned above. After a season in which the " breaks " had gone de- cidedly against him, " Whitey " again found himself " in the Princeton game and by scoring nine points enabled the regiment to enjoy a nine-nothing victory over the previously un- defeated Princeton team. Besides football, " Whitey " has been a member of the basketball and track teams since entering the Academy, being elected captain of the track team during his second class year. Known by many, but understood by few. " Whitey " has indeed a very complex nature. He is not a type which makes friends easily, and is very outspoken with his likes and dis- likes. One always knows where he stands with him, however, and once his friendship is formed you can depend on it. ERNEST WALTER FRY, JR. " Mouse " " Two-Gnu " " Ernie " Prosser, Washington LOCHINVAR may have come out of the West too, but his exploits cannot com- pare with those of the rootin ' , tootin ' , pistol-shootin ' , two-gun man from Washington. To belie his name, Mouse has been battling from the first bell. Plebe and Youngster years were a long bloody battle with the Steam De- partment, and on three occasions he came out the winner in extra round decisions. Having shown himself master mentally, Two-Gun started battling once more, but this time as Spike Webb ' s 115 pound glove-thrower. In Rat ' s fistic career the extra rounds have not been so frequent, and a string of cold forties in the credit column have given him a com- fortable margin of velvet. However. Mouse does not spend all his time scrapping — his weakness for sleep and the great open spaces are somewhat legend. Late in Second Class year the love of the sea be- came so strong that he became an enthusiastic participant in bum-boating. The West, renowned always for its golden worth, has sent us one of its best. Ernie is constant, deep, strong, and at peace with the world, as long as one does not interfere with his goddess of life and freedom — Sweet sleep, that knits the raveled sleeve of care. Care and worry seldom bother " Mouse " though more than the average number of pitfalls have been in his way. After supper, when the boys gather around to discuss the events of the day, " Two-Gun " may be found leading the debate, whatever the subject. Ernie is quiet, but there ' s a glint in his blue eyes that shows that he means business. He is temperamental without losing a sense of the fitness of things, helpful without being patronizing.

Believing that such a naming youth and athletics should combine. Charlie started at la- crosse his first spring here and starred on the class team ever since. Not in the least satis- fied by his success at this, he proceeded to show the world he was varsity material in another direction by developing an uncanny taste for the weaker sex. The way his drags " went over " every time grew positively monotonous. Second only to the above we mention his punctual and conscientious habits. He claims he is only trying to strike a reasonable average for the room, but when anyone complains of Government clocks being inaccurate, and faith- fully keeps a diary for nine years, — we ask you, shall it be by slow drowning or just ordinary firing squad?

Page One Hundred thirty -one CHARLES RICHARD HERMS " Dick " Portsmouth, Ohio WHEN Dick entered the Academy he had already spent half a year at Ohio Wesleyan. It must have been there that he acquired that certain smooth, sophisticated manner which we have always en- vied. A life untroubled and peaceful has been his lot for four years. Although he sometimes took extra instructions in infantry he kept away from serious trouble with the Exec Department. Academics were the least of his worries and a minimum of exertion served to keep him well beyond any difficulties from that source. The femmes are Dick ' s greatest weakness. And a quaint little habit of coming back from leave violently in love is pardonable because in two days the affair is forgotten and he has sent invitations to three girls for the next hop, trusting that two of them will be unable to accept. Though he does not profess to be an athlete, he has played an important part on many a Company athletic field and is a respected op- ponent with the gloves or racquet. He makes friends wherever he goes and his geniality, good nature, and cheery greetings make life pleasant for those who surround him. BOYD EDWARD BLANCHARD " Larry ' " Blanch " Augusta, Maine BOYD descended upon us from the wilds of Maine with great ambitions. The rigors of Plebe year and various en- counters with the Academic Departments failed to dim these ambitions in the least, and with a never-failing cheerfulness he has surmounted all these obstacles and looked around for more to overcome. Arhletics have never been his strong suit, but what may have been the varsity ' s loss has been the company ' s gain. Possessing a strong voice and a uke (both of which are used on every suitable occasion), his services have naturally been required in the musical organizations. Although he has professed to be indifferent to the wiles of old D. Cupid, some of those perfumed letters from Baltimore and points north would lead one to believe otherwise. And then, most any Hop night he may be seen moving in the general direction of Dahl- gren Hall. Boyd is never happier than when he is in the midst of a friendly argument — no matter on what subject from airplanes to elephants. " Now you ought to see the way they do that up in Augusta.

" Fred " " Fritz " Methuen, Massachusetts " TEEKERS CROW! Just swam half a I mile. " Fred is in the room again and there is a change in the whole atmosphere. Everything seems livelier — it is always that way when he ' s around. That is Fred all over — life, vigor, bubbling enthusiasm. He has plenty of energy and has to get rid of some of it. From girls to Ping Pong, the same zest car- ries him along. Back in Methuen he was rated quite a man in his own right, but it took the Navy to put him on his feet. Youngster cruise he caused a mild stir among the hearts on the West Coast. But Second Class cruise on his native heath he ran wild. His successful tactics with the other sex in- dicates that they do like the right man to be a caveman; anyway, that is Fred ' s working principle. All Fred ' s talents don ' t run to radiator tend- ing. He has quite an athletic record. When all is said and done — snake or not, roughneck or otherwise — he is a mighty fine lad and his friends are many. 1 P O Plebe Football : Numerals ; B Squad 3, 2, !: " NA " ; Water Polo 3, 2 ; " NA.

" Our Abie " has been on the short end of a lot of good-natured humor, but he always seems able to laugh with the others. Possibly the rotundity of Hal ' s mid-latitude district can be laid to his ready laugh. Ash came to us from one of the more civil- ized parts of Connecticut. It is said that he was the pride and joy of his native High School. Active in studies, athletics, and social activities, he promptly began to demonstrate to us other unfortunates that he was ready to progress in the latter of his accomplishments. To use Hal ' s own words, " The women simply can ' t resist me. " Brass buttons have done their work. Early in his Plebe year Hal was hurt in foot- ball. This rather crippled his athletic activi- ties, but each spring finds him swatting the rawhide sphere with the best of the class teams. Then, too, Hal has always been a strong con- tender for the ping-pong championship of the Second Batt. But the long and short of the case remain. Abie is a darn good fellow and we all like him. 2 P.

To the uninitiated it would seem like the harbinger of a reluctant farewell; but his friends know better. George is not the dumbest, by about four hundred numbers; and we all know that even the savviest of our band frequently ar- rive at the impossible answer of five when multiplying four by two, superior knowledge and previous training notwithstanding. No, " Bep " is nobody ' s Tecumseh, and while his resourcefulness and originality do not always fit the narrow groove of academic recitation, they do show excellent prospects for the future. When the " coal miner " first joined us from the wilds of Pennsylvania he had had no ex- perience in athletics of any sort. But steady work and keen interest have improved him un- til he is a welcome addition to any football team. " Bep " has not only shown great im- provement in football, but has also developed as a boxer. It is a poor day when he does not make some of " Spike ' s " choicest maulers look like aesthetic dancers, when the boxing season- is in progress. Of a cheerful disposition, always ready to lend a hand, sincere, and a hard worker — that is " Georgie. " DAVID LEE WHELCHEL " Dare- " Fatso- " Wetzel " Washington, D. C. " T WISH I had that guy in Chicago by the neck. " This appears to be the battle cry of our hero, as any day when formation has already busted and he is still in his room trying to disrobe himself of his service and berobe himself in " gym " dress, he unerringly quotes it. Dave went to one of these free movies in Chicago while there for the Army game in 1926. and there someone unknowingly depicted the U. S. Naval Academy as a place where system and routine had erased all bustle and hurry. Dave has never been able to verify this in actual practice and his one ambition will have been realized when he has settled his account with its author. Dave is not in a hurry at all times, as many of you have possibly noticed, and in many of the big Navy gridiron contests of the year it was Dave ' s calm selec- tion of winning plays along with his steady and hard playing in the quarterback position that placed another pigskin on the trophy shelves of Macdonough Hall. Dave has also made quite a name for himself in academics as well as in athletics and it is due to sheer determination and boning that we always find him near the top. Above all he is a hard worker and is consistent. We are lucky to have had him as a classmate and we have all benefited from our association with him. 2 P. O. ; Football, B Squad, 3. .

He early adapted himself to the routine and discipline of the Naval Academy, however, despite the fact that his time had always been at his disposal be- fore. Pat has trained himself to be a man in every sense of the word. Personality could be sug- gested as a middle name, because he is exceed- ingly popular with both his superiors and his subordinates. That his physique has not been neglected is shown by his athletic achievements. Pat has been an outstanding success in both football and boxing during his years at the Academy. Furthermore, he has managed to stand high academically, seemingly with little or no effort — an enviable achievement. It is very seldom that one finds a man so quiet and yet so deeply interested in the world ' s many and varied amusements. Pat is a literary fiend and spends most of his leisure in reading a good book. He is always occupied with something, and combines a quiet nature with a real and deep-rooted character. HAROLD WILLIAM BAUER " Joe " " Injun Joe " Haldredce, Nebraska AN American sage once advised Youth: " Go West, young man, go West, ' so Injun Joe evidently reversed his direc- tions and wandered East to find out if the ocean really existed. Chesapeake Bay looked good to him and thus Nebraska contributed a native son to the mysteries of the deep. In|un Joe early earned this sobriquet as Injun in compliment to his war-whooping ability and his lean sinewy appearance. His enviable athletic record is quite true to his redskin propensities. Possessing grit, determination, and untiring energy, Joe has made good in three major sports and earned the coveted awards. Nor have Academics, on the other hand, been an obstacle for him. He con- quered them easily, and with much merit, by means of earnest, conscientious application. Joe ' s most apparent characteristics are his ever-present cheerfulness and overleaping en- thusiasm, and these coupled with his many accomplishments, have made him an outstand- ing figure in the history of the class of 1930.

When Bob Taylor had finished his preliminary training in a blaze of glory by monopolizing all the honors at Georgia Military Academy, he came North to continue his unfinished business with the United States Navy. Since entering the Naval Academy, Bob has in no way disappointed his many friends and admirers but has kept driving ahead for bigger and better things. His cheery good nature and unruffled optimism, coupled with a clever and accomplished per- sonality, have made him a friend and class- mate. A master musician! As a member of the N. A. Ten for four years he could make that big bass horn do everything but talk. A lion among the ladies! Always ready to do his bit in making the " unfair sex " happy, and he knew how. A semi-savoir! With plenty of brains and common sense, he found it too much bother to star in anything but Dago. Last, but not least, he is a crew man of no mean ability. These are some of the char- acteristics of the Georgia Peach. As a bandmaster in Rockland, Maine, Bob proved himself a capable politician and a heavy man with the big baton. However, if you ever see him leading a band or anything else don ' t ask him to play " Marching Through Georgia. " That ' s fight talk to him and he is liable to declare war. Wherever Bob goes with that sunny smile and spirit of good fellowship, he ' s bound to spread a little cheer and good will. It is our desire to be with him when some of it is flowing freely. JAMES HALLECK HEAN " Red " " Jimmy " " Wesley " Shreveport, Louisiana " TJ ED " comes from the far South, wh f he acquired many of the manneris - - of that fair land. He graduated fr ED " comes from the far South, where risms from high school at Ellisville, Mississippi, in the class of ' 24. As is true of all mariners, he heard the call of the sea early, and by going to San Diego, California, fitted himself to be- come one of God ' s chosen — ? — A Midship- man. " Red " is of a rather quiet nature, but has a sparkle in his eye that speaks of a quickness of mind and a keen sense of humor. Girls in general, or in particular, do not seem to interest him in the least. While at the Academy, Jim established a brilliant record in academics. He is one of the proud wearers of a gold star. Not con- fining his activities to academics, however, he has been active in athletics, being associated with class track, football, and rifle teams. To the hearts of his associates " Red " has more than endeared himself. A gentleman always, sincere, conscientious, and determined, he has made a name for himself of which he should be more than proud. " Senor Red " did himself proud in the wilds of " Old Spain, " as more than one senorita will attest. The harbor of Barcelona was fre- quented by numerous damsels who invaded the " Arkie " in hopes of seeing their red- headed cavalier. His stunts are too numer- ous to mention, but we can ascribe the worst ones to his artistic temperament and forgive him therefore. Red was non-reg. But that doesn ' t count now. There are bigger things ahead, and the fact that you ' ve bounced the rougher road and survived it makes you stroncer for it. Red is no fair-weather friend, and that ' s the best you can say of any man.

He found himself suddenly transported from the blissful freedom of college life into the repressions of Plebe year when we particularly recall his famous feat of wiggling his ears, holding water port, giving way starboard, or featuring both to- gether, as the First Class commanded. Phil ' s weaknesses are music and women. Whenever we heard the corridors reverberating with the clear tones of a trumpet, we knew it was only Phil at it again. He was always active in the Musical Clubs and that organization is going to lose a valuable member. As for dragging, we all know him as " the Academy ' s gift to the Crabs. " He gives them a treat every week-end. But the others come in for their share, too. The Academics never worry him. They threatened him several times but he fooled them and pulled through with plenty to spare. Phil is a real marksman, too. and in the spring he is always over on the range with the rifle Irani, pel filiating the hull ' s eye. In those dark eyes, there is a certain bit of warmth and personality that attracts friends; his sense of humor and genial disposition keep them. RICHARD HARNED BATES " Dick " Rochester, New York DICK made his unostentatious arrival on the third of September, 1926, fresh from East High — just another shining ex- ample of the saying that all green things aren ' t raised in the wide open spaces. Plebe year descended on him before he had had an op- portunity to get squared away in his new mode of life; and so followed a few hectic months during which he enjoyed undue popu- larity with the upper classmen. Soon, how- ever, all mannerisms and personal charactei- istics were hidden beneath a suave manner and impenetrable veneer f rom which he seldom emerges, even to this day. Academics never seemed to hold much feat for Dick, and each year sees him rise several numbers in class standing. His dragging pro- pensities are practically nil, yet each hop finds him safely ensconced in the stag line. Dick was a true disciple of the little brown book. He knew how to make the best use of a fertile brain, but at the same time he was never too busy to help those less for- tunate than himself over the Academic shoals. If he makes as good a shipmate as he has a classmate, his success is assured. Orchestra 4, 3. 2. 1 : Musical Clubs Show 4. 3. -. 1 Cross Country Sduad 3 (1930) ; Rifle Team 3. 2, 1. 2 P. O.

Ray came to the Naval Academy be- cause he felt the discipline would be good for him. Hoot likes to celebrate and his readiness to make " whoopee " on the slightest provocation led him to an early entanglement with the Executive Department, which has acted as a slight — very slight— curb on his exuberance. Never have the academic departments taken a telling hold on " Hep " long enough to gain even a slight time advantage. " Hoot ' s " marks, while not starring, have been good enough to warrant his taking time off to talk about the sport in season with you. And few there are who can treat on Ray after the end of any given season. Though an ardent advocate of the " Radiator Club, " he spends his winter afternoons in the Armory with the basketeers. And in the springtime he betakes himself to the Rifle Range to fire away at the old bulls- eye. " Hoot " likes the Navy, and the Navy likes him, a reciprocation which bodes well for our future relations with him. LAURENCE CARDWELL ' Dope " " Larry " " Creed " " King Wah. Alabama YEARS from now, when we are — well, no longer young, as the short story writers say — and Larry has a barge, we wonder whether he will still be rushing hither and yon in search of the ideal. For in spite of all his laughter and horse play, Lany is an idealist, an individualist — and an egoist! Serious underneath but smil- ing most of the time when there ' s anyone around. He ' s a boy who hates to grow up because it ' s so much fun to be a kid. Everyone who knows him realizes that un- derneath it all there is more than meets the eye — a friend, not a mere acquaintance— a lover of music, but not a musician — big- hearted as the day is long — and a peach of a pal. That ' s Larry, even though he has a poeiic nature mixed with the temperament of an Irish hodcarrier. Whenever Lany was slipping a little to the leeward of a 2.5 he always managed to brace up and sail clear of danger. May you always be able to do this, old man, when in future years you see trouble ahead. A good man to make a liberty with and possessing a quiet humor, generally found in quiet men, no one will ever question his being a good pal. 2 P.

Wrong again, believe it or not. Ask Swede. He will tell you all about his old Virginia descendants, royal blue bloods, coat-of-arms. and all of the other fixings for a member of the gentility. It seems that things became too tame for them in Virginia after all of the redskins in the colony were killed, so the family moved to good old Illinois. " Swede " became one of the early members of the " sub " squad, after having a chance to prove his ability along aquatic lines; and extra pumps on the feed line are still necessary when he goes for a swim. Aside from his athletic achievements with the beloved " Sub Squad, " John manages to do some good consistent row- ing with the lightweight crew. No one really knows " Swede, " not even his roommate. He is good-natured, quiet, likes good music, is lazy at times and very conscientious at others, and has few vices. He does not care much for the girls, but has a slight weakness for the " right kind " ; he is kind to the plebes; and he is regulation — although he has been known to play cards during evening study hour. Yes, " Swede " is all right; his only fault is his murderous English. RICHARD TENNEY SPOFFORD " Spoof " " Otto " Malden, Massachusetts OUT of an iron foundry in the Codfish State came this Yankee giant-killer. At first he had everyone buffaloed by his apparent quietness and good behavior. The duty officers were the first to discover his hidden possibilities, and before he had become thoroughly acclimated to Navy life, his name often appeared on the conduct reports, and extra duty became second nature to him. Then the academics started, and we were again in for a big surprise. He made long lessons look short and hard problems look easy. He spends his spare time engaging in varied athletic activities, the spott depending on the season. It is the usual thing to find him on some class or company squad. His favorite sport is marathon running, his pet distance being fsom Crabtown to Beantown, which, at the end of every summer cruise, he covers in record time, thanks to a tired look that softens even the most hard-hearted motorist. Spoof is a man of many and often changing moods; serious, noisy and mischief -bent, some- what egotistical, sometimes melancholy, but always — Spoof ! lsulh Crew 1 P. O. M. P.

A year spent at Shadman ' s War College previous to his entrance to the Acad- emy was very instrumental in preparing the way for his successful combat with the Aca- demic Departments. As academics never bothered him (in fact he almost starred plebe year), he was able to spend much time in the pursuit and idoliza- tion of Morpheus and the fair sex. Whitey was always a snake. If one left him, there was always another to take her place. His locker has always been covered with pictures reminiscent of femmes met at Army games, on cruises, and on furloughs in the home " podunk. " However, at the beginning of second class year, his interest centered in Vassar, resulting in a cry of protest from those passe. Ed weathered all storms, though, and still devotes his time to the O. A. O. on the Hudson. Three years spent in the gym left no time for other athletics. However, he always hears the call of Spring and does his bit with the bat on the company baseball team. During second class year he waged a thrilling battle with the Athletic Department which ended successfully within one hour of the commence- ment of Christmas leave. This perseverance in the face of heavy odds was another indi- cation of " the old Navy fight. " OTIS JOHN EARLE ' Hotis " " Ya Ya " " Dutch Poy ' Reading, Pennsylvania A MOVIE " fade out, " showing Otis in his early teens, would reveal him as a favored son of Reading. We would now see him as the star guard on the home town quintette, now on a six months ' cruise in the Merchant Marine, again as an apt stu- dent at Bobby Werntz ' s School for ' Middies ro be. " Late in plebe summer Hotis arrived and promptly proved that a tardy beginning but accentuates succeeding efforts. Academic life seemed to agree with him, Otis becoming acclimated quickly. While we wooden sub- jects were laboring in the anchor sections. YaYa spent his time in the first, proving both the text-books and Einstein wrong. Flashes of good humor and fine wit appeared and a constant good fellowship and trust- worthiness proved to be a permanent attribute of Dutch Poy. Otis refrained from conflict with the weaker sex until his Second Class year, when he blossomed forth at a hop with the One and Only, both literally and figura- tively, for he immediately reverted to his for- mer Red Mike standards. There are, however, tales of his conquest in the home podunk that are beyond the scope of this work. Steady, reliable, honest Otis — we hope that the seas he cruises over may ever be as calm and certain as he himself. 2 P. O. ; Gymkhana 4, 3 : Assistant Manager Rifle Team RNAT. 2 P.

A little might be added by way of emphasis to what the photographer has shown you of his looks, but there are some other important features that deserve mention. The first reputation that he has received was that of being a snake because of the numerous fair damsels who came to visit him. He had so many sisters and cousins that this accusation was hardly a fair one. His athletic ambitions are not high castles al- though he enjoys playing most games, a fact quite evident from the whole-hearted spirit in which he participates in them. This same thoroughness is what put him in the first sec- tions, and his willingness to impart his learn- ings to those not so thorough gave to him the reputation of being " savvy.

BRYAN FRED SWAN " Swanee " " Goosey " Wittenberg, Missouri SWANEE and athletics are as inseparable as a duck and water. He decided not to be too ambitious and chose only foot- ball, boxing, and lacrosse, as the fields in which he could best use that good level head and that one hundred and eighty pounds of brawn acquired tossing about plows and mail bags in Wittenberg. Now that old mail bag heave has developed into a vicious tackle and a mean weave with a left to the jaw that threatens the strongest and best of them. He is not naturally pugnacious, however, even if he did threaten to throw his roommate out of the window one evening. He is not fond of studying and yet he never has any serious troubles obtaining his 2.5. His friends will not be surprised when he patents his inventions, because his sketches have caused many instructors to stare in wonder and awe. " It may not look so good, but it will work. " Goose is a man of many moods, especially in his love affairs. Now he is in love, now he is a confirmed misogynist; but the manner in which he tells you this convinces you he does not take women seriously.

" That I I was what they said of him in high school, and that describes him as one finds him on first acquaintance. Beneath the surface, though, there are truer and finer quali- ties which show up more as you get to know him better. Charlie, Herb, or Andy, as he was called, (different name, depending on the girl) came fresh from home, having graduated from New Haven High School the previous year. Natu- rally he was rather green at the military game, but it took only a short time for him to catch on. His quick replies to all questions and his ready wit took him through Plebe year and got him out of many a tight place with the upper classmen. It was on Christmas leave of Plebe year that Charlie succumbed to what was evidently a well-aimed shot from Dan Cupid. His rather large correspondence, which grows a little after each leave, and a certain photograph on his locker door, would indicate that he has not yet recovered. He has never gone out for any branch of athletics seriously, preferring a variety of ex- ercise rather than one kind. He made his numerals in water polo Plebe Year, but de- cided he preferred boxing. During the spring he can usually be found on the lacrosse field. In brief, Charlie is quick, energetic, and argumentative. He has a keen insight and a head for business that few can beat, and is as typical a Yankee as ever left the " Nutmeg " State. ALEXANDER SALLEY HEYWARD " Sandy " " Sallef Camden, South Carolina THE picture tells the story — cheerful, wide- awake, and always ready to lend a help- ing hand. After two years at Porter Mili- tary Academy, where he won the majority of the gold medals for being top man, " Sandy " felt the call for greater fields to be conquered. So it was that the " Palmetto State " parted with another of its dyed-in-the-wool citizens, and " Sandy " entered the Naval Academy. Plebe year found Sandy " more than popu- lar with the upper classmen, and his tribula- tions would fill a volume. Since then " Sandy " has spent his time profitably, playing on the water polo squad during the winter and spend- ing the summer on the rifle range or with the lightweight crew. Academics hold no fears for him and have never occasioned him any concern. A real gentleman, a friend of all, he will always be found doing more than his share. " Sandy, " with the taciturn characteristics of his kin. is not prone to discuss himself or his endeavors ; but he can always be relied upon for some kind of helpful suggestion. One sel- dom hears of his " affaires d ' amour, " but that is no proof of their non-existence. He is liked by his classmates, trusted by his superiors, and respected by his subordinates — a sure indica- tion of a real and enviable character. In short. he is the kind of a fellow that one is both proud and fortunate to have for a friend. 1 P. O. ; Gymkhana 4, 3 ; Class Water Polo 4, 3 ; Class Soccer 3, 2 ; Class Lacrosse 2. C. P. O.

HARRY was born in South Shields on- the-Tyne, but outside of his affection for the " old country " one would never suspect his being a Limey. Washington had its effect on his early life and Seven com- pleted his preparations. As a midshipman, it seemed to him that a regulation was made only to be disregarded if it interfered with comfort, and that academics were just another of those things necessary to weed out the wooden. He is always a little better than average, yet never behind in sleep. A youngster cruise on the Oklahoma saw " Lime " in Panama where good times were to be had for seemingly norhing. An O. A. O. in San Francisco and another in Los Angeles. But when the Utah visited Rockland, Maine, Harry was known to have met his match and for once his habitual nonchalance was lacking. When he wasn ' t busy collecting cigarette butts, " ' O ' y " worked out on the cinder path with the varsity track squad or played foot- ball for the honor of the fighting third. Not out in front — not in the rear, but somewhere in the van you will find Harry forging ahead. Forging ahead in the realm of the future and gaining the respect of all those who serve with him, he will make his ship a better place, and his messmates will be fortunate in his friendship. We can say no more than this. There are none who do not respect him. ARTHUR J. BARRETT, JR. " Tough? 3 " Dick " " Art " Nantucket, Massachusetts IT was a sad day at the local high school of Nantucket when the class of " 26 " lost its president the year before graduation. But he was destined for greater things. He started out his career and worries, mostly the latter, at Severn where he successfully pre- pared for the entrance exams. He has spent most of his time since preparing for exams but seems to have an uncanny knack for bilging the third month of each term and having to spend the rest of the time with his head buried in a book from reveille until taps in an endeavor to pull sat. He has been the recipient of numerous letters from the Super- intendent, in which the Superintendent notes with concern the sad state of academic nadir to which Toughy has fallen. He is always on top, however, when February and June roll around. The probable cause of all his difficulties lies in the maid, and his ability to fall in love and remain in rhat condition for indefinite periods. The fall finds Toughy over on Worden field playing soccer, and woe unto the man who gets between him and the ball because all that he can see is the ball; the man just doesn ' t count. The winter finds him boning and the spring playing lacrosse. His traits that we appreciate are legion. A man that laughs at care, fights things to the bitter end, loves pleasure, enjoys pleasantries, is always loved.

" A man deriving delight from things political. he has never allowed such indulgences to carry away his sense of perspective and the fitness of things. Good common sense coupled with an inborn cleverness and facility to estimate any situation quickly have proved invaluable. Any wintry Saturday in the pool has found Styx leading the " 50 " and " 100 " ; First Class year found him team captain. Wherever crowds may gather, Styx is noticeable for his suave, effortless, and yet undeniable leader- ship. Dignified, but far from aloof; amiable, but rarely intimate; always helpful, but never pa- tro nizing; intellectual, with no evidence of the pedantic — who of us could forget Sryx? THOMAS WORTH MARSHALL, JR, " Tacky " " Tom " Washington, D. C. THREE years of architecture; a Sigma Chi; and a man about town was Tacky; then one day he was swallowed up by 500 of us. That day he was tall, dark, and hand- some, but he was just a plebe. A biography is necessarily brief. But a few words must be said for Tom: here is a man who has found what he wants to do and has done it, who is at his best on a cruise and admits it, who can go below for ten minutes and come up with a detailed sketch of the engineering installation, turn his youngsters to and have his division looking like a Dutch housewife ' s kitchen for Skipper ' s inspection, or shoot Arcturus, Vega, and Spica and intersect them in a pinpoint on his chart. Has he faults? Well, naturally. Some of them: a passion for " nickel magazines, " a greater passion for sleep, an inherent dislike of a razor, and — if it can be classed as a fault — a past in which iced coffee has been his strongest stimulant. Despite these unalterable facts, and sundry others which space does not permit of men- tion, those of his classmates who know would s.iv " Tacky Marshall, yeah — a water man .

" From the banks of the Kanawha came Railroad. Be- hold one of the most versatile men in the class! His friends will tell you that he can do a variety of things well, and he is one of those who possess the happy faculty of mak- ing the best of things as they are. Ray ' s trip along the Maine coast brought him considerable fame and caused his friends no little worry. A keen sense of humor plus a certain innate love of adventure aided him in overcoming obstacles thrown in his path by the Academic and Executive Departments. Railroad is an athlete when he wants to be. He can vary his tactics toward the fairer sex, as he chooses. And let us add, at this point, that his taste in female pulchritude is above reproach. He can wax eloquent when he so desires and when in the humor for debate his oratory has entertained many a smoke- filled room. . Ray ' s host of friends will remember him. not only for the favors that he has done for his classmates, but for the straightforward reliability, characteristic of the West Virginia Every man knows just where he stands with Railroad, and his classmates know, too, that he can be counted on to crash through with the goods. Lots of good common sense plus a thorough knowledge of human nature— that ' s Ray. RICHARD COULTER DRUM HUNT, JR. " Mike " " Demon " " Dick " Washington, D. C. ALTHOUGH not a politician, few of our noted senators have a more convincing or pleasing line — perhaps that is why the women like him. From his red hair and broad grin you can see that he has all the inherent instincts of leadership which have contributed to his suc- cess as football manager, chairman of the hop committee, biography editor of the Lucky Bag, etc. Always in a good humor, with a good word for everyone, except possibly some of the steam profs after the publication of a weekly tree. Although not famous when it comes to working math probs and drawing Zeuner diagrams, he has managed to get by and still keep up with the latest books, magazines, and women. , Some of his chief accomplishments and claims to fame are: To wake up as the last reveille note dies away, reach formation just as the late bell rings; wear a full dress blouse in the lobby of such hotels as the Palmer House and get away with it; — to say nothing of " dragging " princesses and other notables. Some people are inclined to prophesy for the future? — we can only " point with P " de " to Mike ' s past and let you view with confidence the future. ! P. O.; ,. , . Lacrosse 4, 3: Numerals 4.

He is, therefore, invincible in an argument. He graduated from high school at the age of sixteen and entered upon a career of bridge building. Three years he dedicated himself to the improvement of the trunk highways of Arkansas. Always a follower of the spirit of Nimrod, he spent his few idle hours during that period at the hunt. Often now, when seized by the spirit of reminiscence, he will relate to the bored bystanders the story of that now famous afternoon when he killed four hundred water moccasins with a sling shot and a quick eye. From the swamps and morasses of Arkansas, with a brief stopover in his native Kentucky, he went east and signed for the course and career. During the restricted days of plebe year his chief hobby was the proving of his mettle in those boneheaded arguments which fill our happy hours. He has good sense, shrewdness, and is a valuable addition to any party. Good luck, Male, old pal — you ' ll need it! CYRUS GRANT HILTON " Cf Lakewood, Ohio IT seems that Cy hit upon the bright idea of coming to the Naval. Academy while acting as a head waiter on a palatial Lake Erie coal barge. His father thought it a great idea because nowhere in the annals of history had a McSweeney-Hilton been a sailor, al- though several had been famous boilermakers, and one a renowned tinner. All pressure was brought to bear, and Cy — being an unusually bright boy who walked at the age of six weeks — as evidenced by a pair of bowed legs — and talked when he was four months old — found himself inside the portals of the Naval Academy gates. Once inside the Academy Cy had little trouble staying. He appears to be a throw- back to his ancestors, as he literally ate up the steam course. He is a typical Red Mike, and true to the traditions of all Mikes, has a new girl with every change of the moon. To make any party it is only necessary to have Cy along and get him to sing. He has the voice of a Rocky Mountain canary, and the ear of a crow. He never fails to bring tears to his audience ' s eyes when he sings " She was only a ' boid ' in a gilded cage. " This and his good nature and intelligence are all the assets any man could ask. 2 P. O.; Manager Water Polo 1 ; Assistant Manager Water Polo 4,3.2; Reception Committee 3, 2, 1 ; Gymkhana 4. 1 P.

His small stature is not typical of the big, bronze, Texan cowboy, and affords an excuse for one of his sobriquets. But, after talking to him, you can ' t mistake his Southern origin. Although four years have helped a lot to rid him of his dialect, he still persists to his pre-admission traits. You ought to hear him speak about Bal-ti-moah. Any study hour you can find him busily boning some kind of literature, non-academic. With it all he succeeds and that is a mark of the real savoir — to say nothing of his versatile " Dago. " Tex thinks he ' d like to be an aviator — horses are too slow for him. To see him herd a drove of cattle in an airplane would be revolutionary ! As for non-academics, Tex played at the backstop position on the varsity baseball squad his last two years. He ' s good at stopping ' em. Slow and undisturbed, non-irritable and easy-going, Tex never seems to lose sight of the end in view — and now his ends in view are in the clouds. It is our fervent hope that he may some day attain them. THEODORE TAFT MILLER ' Ted " " T.T. " " Bitter Boy " Lancaster, Pennsylvania THIS shy and blushing violet from the heart of our Pennsylvania hills has been unalterably reticent about his history, but by dint of considerable sleuthing with the authorities on his podunk, much valuable data has been gathered together. Ted says that visions of home and fireside are the inspira- tions that keep his courage up. As we know him, he has an overwhelming fondness for mystery stories, easy chairs, and that ancient game of billiards. Company soccer has always found a dependable and worthy advocate of the game in Ted. His ambitions ran towards managing the baseball team. He has struggled manfully with academics, scoring in every round, rising once on the ninth count in a heated battle with the math department. Dur- ing our four years, Ted commanded the respect and liking of us all and graduates now com- bining the modest and retiring characteristics that he brought to us with the experience and " savoir faire " that the four years have imparted into the well-rounded man who leaves 1 P.

" He ' s been under the strain of living up to the reputation made by his two illustrious brothers so long that he is beginning to show it. Another year of emulating them and he will take to drink. Joe would make a good diplomat; he says so little and hears so much. He doesn ' t even brag about the girls he has left behind him. This in a Midshipman of Joe ' s " bon taille " is unheard of. Bung has so much of the old adhesive in his make-up that he taught himself Italian and typewriting in his spare time. And has he succeeded? Why, say, he reads Boccaccio in Italian and typewrites the newspaper for exer- cise. From the amount of food he receives he must tell all his friends he is starving. Not a day passes that he doesn ' t get at least five pounds of candy. Oh, he is a priceless room- mate. After telling you of his so noble attributes we hate to disclose his shortcomings, but you asked for them. We blush to tell it; he sings classical music in the shower on cold morn- ings and practices lobs, volleys and other tac- tical tennis maneuvers in his 12 x 12 domicile. He is known on the tennis courts as a dan- gerous man for knocking his opponents out with a swift ball to the midriff. He should be, for his roommate has not only been his severest critic but also his most unwilling back- hoard. But enough of that. FRANCIS EDMOND WILSON ' Dutch " " Few " " Gusso " " Effie " St. Louis, Missouri IF the picture above were turned to a re- clining position, and the mouth opened in a gentle snore, you would see Dutch in the attitude which generally precedes a reci- tation in Nav: a heart and soul untroubled. He has that widely advertised attribute of " personal magnetism " ( " Clip the coupon at the bottom of this page! " ), and although he has no gilt-edge diploma from a correspond- ence school, is far more interesting to listen in than the man who has " made good. " His stories were the raison d ' etre of all the classic bull sessions of the second batt, and we have reason to believe that the Ward Room or J. O. Mess which has him for a member will not lack for entertainment. Have you seen him dance? No? Well, you have missed something important to your education, for Dutch can stand in front of a Vic and soft-shoe with such effect that you think he is a cross between Joe Cook and the cow that jumped over the moon. As you may have guessed, Dutch is easy to get along with. This quality, although lightly spoken of, is one of the most esteemed in a roommate, and is the foundation of the diplomacy of the Naval Officer. We feel con- fident that his droll wavs and irrepressible good humor will be welcomed wherever he goes. He is a born comedian and his displays of wit are always welcome. Without " Gusso " the long winter months would have seemed twice as long, and the indoor sessions of the toreadors would have missed his superb lead- ership.

HAVE you ever noticed this tall, slender, blond-haired young " collar ad " slowly sauntering through the corridors? He is our young blood from Philly and claims to be a Red Mike. We believed him until Second Class Christmas leave when his claim fell short, for he now sends flowers like the most accom- plished snake in our realms. Tom fools the Ac Departments merely as a side-line, because he can get a maximum mark out of a minimum effort. Ask " Tom " and he will tell you that the first essential is: Don ' t go to class without at least knowing on what page the lesson begins. Tom is one of these reserved fellows, but when you get to know him he is true blue — you can count on him to the last. Bogan is a good fellow. More than that he is a good sport. If being a good fellow were all that were necessary to get by, Tom would have lots of velvet, because he has principles which prove him among his asso- ciates to be a man. JAMES MICHAEL DALY " Mac " " Moe " Hartford, Conn. MOE came to us fresh from a course in apiary and agronomy at the Connecti- cut " Aggies. " His one ambition was to be a forester so he joined the Navy— he is versatile like that. Moe showed much promise of athletic abil- ity, but a bad knee brought his football and lacrosse career to an abrupt end Plebe year Since he has restricted himself to the field of indoor sports. His accomplishments are varied. Following his athletic demise he dis- tinguished himself at presiding over the bull sessions in the once famous " Dew Drop Inn and up in " Blue Heaven. " No gathering of the boys around the radiator was ever com- plete without this big, good-natured, witty Irishman. His aspirations gradually ascended until now they are far above the clouds. He will be a " pee-lot " or bust. However, let us look at Moe as he really is now: a sportsman in the truest sense of the word, an unfailing interesting racon- teur, and, last of all. a friend, white, above- board and square to the four winds. 2 P.

He is quiet and dependable, is not overly in- terested in women, and is a " man ' s man. " Jack has never taken anything very seriously at the Academy and hence has not distin- guished himself in any especial line. He has always made the grades academically, regard- less of an occasional slumming trip in the anchor sections, now and then. He is a great fellow for workouts and enjoys gym work and sports, and drags sufficiently to know what it is all about. So he has been a good average man as far as routine is concerned and a real man and real friend in the estimation of his classmates. Herman left his heart back on the northeast coast of this grand and glorious country, so it ' s the old story for him. When all is said and done, he is a true and stanch friend and hasn ' t an enemy in the Academy. LOUIS J. BREAULT " Louis " Attleboro, Massachusetts SLIP into the room almost any time during study hours and you ' ll find Lou either caulking or lying on the bed reading a magazine or book not pertaining to the cur- riculum. No, he has never been accused of excessive boning, but nevertheless his faculty of giving the correct answer at the correct time has kept him relatively free from the worries of an academic nature. His ambition to become one of Navy ' s stel- lar athletes in football and boxing has been handicapped by his periodic habit of breaking training. " It ' s a ' B ' squad rate to break train- ing, " says Lou, and all those who know him will agree that he was absolutely sincere in believing this and perhaps a little more than sincere in carrying this belief into execution. Louis is outspoken, rather opinionated and argumentative, and is a firm believer in Acad- emy traditions. He is frank and sincere, how- ever, and is open to conviction. 2 P. O. : Gymkhana Baseball 1.

" Nick " Stonington, Connecticut AT the outset, Nick was not so fond of the career he had picked, and determined to end it. However, one of our many smooth-tongued D. O. ' s convinced him that he really shouldn ' t deprive the Navy of his charming personality until said organization had been given a fair trial. Nick relented for the good of the service. He ' s like that; always thinking of others. Af ter testing his powers half-heartedly in several fields of athletics for two years, he finally settled down in earnest to make of himself a husky crew man. His correspondence is quite sensational ; if the contents of several of his letters carried blows as heavy to the eyes as they were to the nostrils, he ' s superhuman to have withstood them. He tells that he is a " red mike, " so we know that with all that genius he is some- what of a hypocrite. However, we know Nick to be conscientious and friendly, and hope that our association with him will ever be as close as it has been in the past four years — for he is one whose friendship becomes closer with time. If you want to see a good one-act comedy, observe Nick and Mike accusing each other of being greasy. That is some show! The lad from New London is versatile, no question about it. For all we know he may have been a rum-runner before he became one of the pampered pets. Nick is always the same, quiet, even-tem- pered, true blue through and through, with scores of friends and nary an enemy. He embodies every quality that goes to make up the ideal shipmate — what more can we say? SAMUEL PAXTON WELLER, JR. " Sam " " Rudie " Savannah, Tennessee DON ' T be misled by the serious look on Sam ' s face in the above photo as it is far from being realistic. Sam had just returned from a " Steam Class " when he posed for this picture; so we can hardly blame him for his serious mien. He is, however, pos- sessed of a real cheery nature, which has won for him a host of friends, and continues to do so every day. It was Sam ' s melodious voice that first brought him into the limelight, early in his naval career. We feel certain that even Ver- non Dalgart would have turned green with envy could he have heard Sam rendering " Mary Phagan, " or " The Wreck of the ' 97, " at the Happy Hours of plebe year. Sam has also proved to be an athlete of no mean ability. He was the " Ty Cobb " of the " Fightin ' Fourth " and when wielding the bat was the Waterloo of many an aspiring company hurler. He probably holds a record for diversity of sports as he represented the company as a wrestling team one afternoon, wrestling in two weights; and then just for the exercise, he took part in the gym and swim- ming meets, and the water polo game. Although Sam persists in worrying about academics, he has done creditably in all his work; so we shall let well enou gh alone. We who have known Sam best will never forget his pleasant nature and cheery smile, and above all that he has been a true friend and classmate. . Two Stripes. Buzzaid. Page One Hundred Fifty-one ELIAS BERTRAM MOTT, 2d " Doc " " Benny " Providence, Rhode Island WHOM have we here? To a few he is known as Bert, but to the majority of his classmates he is known as Benny. The reason for his first nickname may be easily seen, but it is only to those who made the West Coast cruise in the ninth squad of the Oklahoma that the origin of his second nickname is known. In his studies he has stood near the middle of his class, and at one time he defied the Steam Department, by its various means, to catch him asleep. By applying himself each day to concentrated studying and hard work he fought off the impending danger. Benny is a great advocate of proper train- ing to keep himself in condition. Although he is not one of the star athletes of the Acad- emy, he spends his time in the fall playing soccer and in the spring he is out with the tennis players. Benny ' s non-combatant nature and general get-up did not allow his taking part in the harsher forms of athletics, but he was always in the stands at football practice, though it is a question as to whether he was interested in the team or the ever-fluttering nonsense on the side. His eyes are always burning brightly, scorching the dainty wings of the fair moths who fly his way. Doc ' s good nature and determination have marked his career at the Academy. He is a true friend that none of us ever want to lose. HERMAN ARNOLD PIECZENTKOWSKI " Hap " " Pie " Providence, Rhode Island PIE immediately came into prominence the first time a muster was taken, and since that time his famous surname has made more than one prof take the foot of the class in pronunciation. However, Hap has been very generous and reasonable about this diffi- culty, for every time he observes one of them looking hard at the little red book and then get red in the face, Pie pipes up with a " Here, Sir! " He has won high places in the hearts of his classmates; and Pie is very popular, for his ability to gently kid the other fellow until he likes it has gained many a victory. Since Plebe summer Pie has been an oars- man. Hap has never missed an opportunity to row, and concentration on the one sport that he loves has brought him a place on the varsity. Lack of weight proved his handicap, but perfection of form more than compen- sated for this. Persistence and a certain habitual routine, coupled with a good supply of common sense and practical knowledge, have kept him well up in the first hundred in academics and he has steadily improved each year. Pie doesn ' t let the academics occupy too much of his time however, and he has plenty of it left to visit and join the gang in a lively bull session. Never much inclined towards the femmes, he has contented himself with avoiding hops with the joys and sorrows of dragging. Here he is, fellows — six feet of good com- mon sense. 2 P.

Sam has stood at the head of so many lines . . . pay line, inoculation line, " im- mediately without requisition " line, and lines for the first liberty boat, that he has been stepped upon all too frequently. The result is a little fellow that you have to examine closely in order to see. But that is not when Sam is telling anyone about it. Sam has an eye for the exotic. There is no luxury or comfort in which he will not invest. Why, he even had a special size bil- liard table installed in his room! . . . Smoke Hall is so far away. Sam reminds us of the old saw about the best things coming in the smallest packages. Bermuda must think an awful lot of him to get him right off the cruise onto a liner.

We regretfully leave Sam taking his physical exams, stretching and straining for that extra half-inch. WILLIAM CHARLES KAISER " Bill " Jamestown, Rhode Island A NAVY Junior by birth, he is by pro- fession a sea-lawyer of the first mag- nitude. As the Vassal Daily Inquirer might describe him. Bill is a tall, dark man with well chiseled features and a smile as overwhelming as Swedish punch at midday. His chief accomplishment has been to finish a term with as near a two-five as it is possible to forecast with a Bowditch and slip-stick. The Navy has developed him into a spend- thrift held back only by September terms, rope climbing, and femmes. As for the " sex, " Bill has dragged forth from the limbo of for- gotten snakes a complex as irresistible to femmes as a pap sheet is to a duty officer. He is a connoisseur of such notable feats as breaking mandolin strings without music, wrecking roadsters without committing homi- cide, and making maiden trips on the Fall River Line. His great ambition is to design anti-aircraft guns without breech plugs. In more serious occupations he can do anything with a baseball except play a piano on it, and as an assiduous satellite of the famous Coach Cressy, prototype of all yachtsmen, he can sail circles around any craft afloat, even including the Reina 2 P.

VIEWING the Academy life from the out- side for a year, from the vantage point of Severn School, Charlie felt the urge to wear Blue and Gold, and one hot day in June found him enrolled in the ranks of ' 30. Coming from the region famed for its iron men, he was not long in going out for the gentle sports of wrestling and soccer. He just missed starring plebe year, and his natural talents, coupled with the ability to get the maximum dope with the minimum output, gave Charlie the necessary confidence for a successful battle with the academics. When not out for some sport he will always be found dragging or boning the latest book — usually dragging. Having a convincing man- ner and a useful line proved an invaluable aid in many embarrassing situations arising with the academics, D O ' s, femmes and the First Class during Plebe year. Although frequently exercising the Navy man ' s privilege to gripe and long for the free and easy life, everyone knows that Charlie would as soon lose an arm as leave the Navy. Seeing a few aviation movie " thrillers " out in town has made one more prospective line officer " air minded. " If Charlie concentrates on aviation as hard as he does on other things that he likes, there won ' t be any question of his success. RICHARD DAVIS McGLATHERY " Dick " " Mac " Philadelphia, Pennsylvania THE country lost a good teacher when Mac forswore his early education at Philadelphia Normal School and spent a year at Severn resting up for Plebe year, in- cidentally forming there a host of friendships which the diversity of interests of the Academy has strengthened rather than weakened. " What a beatin ' " and the deck knows that Mac has just returned from his third P work in a row, or that the bell just reclaimed him from Morpheus ' spell. He can do — and does — more sleeping per day than any three normal men, and still manages not to be overly disturbed by the nightmares perpetrated by the " Ac " departments. Modest in manner, his idler mo- ments are spent swimming, sailing, or reading, rather than in social pursuits. However, one or two experiences have shown us that when he is interested in a femme his naive tactics are fairly effective. A trip to the hospital Plebe year cut short a promising tennis career; more fortunate at soccer, however, he has come to be one of the mainstays of the team. " Air-minded " — he hopes to wear wings this side of the pearly gates. We ' re willing to bet that he gets them, too. We send him to the Fleet, confident that the rest of his service career will be as bright as its beginning. M. P. O. ; Soccer 4, 3, 2. 1 : " NA " Wresdmg 4, 3, 2, 1 ; Lacrosse 4.

Page One Hundred Fifty-four FRANK EDWARD HIGHLEY " Higlf Philadelphia, Pennsylvania FRANK is one of the greatest " workout " boys that ever entered the Academy. Everything that he does is done in a sure methodical fashion that seldom fails to bring good results. He devotes proportionate energy to his athletics, his literary activities, his social affairs, and to his academics. All have their place and time. Frank ' s track work has been his big moment in the athletic line for four years. Once or rwice he strayed from the path of the faith- ful, once to play football and another time to try his luck in the pool. Aside from these two breaks, however, he has stuck to track like a leech, fall, winter and spring. He has been lifting them up and putting them down for the sake of old Navy and a possible " N. " In between times he fills in with tennis and handball. His literary activities — ah! there we have the young man at his best. For four years Highley has been filling a page of the " Log " with snappy quips and cracks at the sporting world. Once in a while he digressed from the straight and narrow and in an effort to fill space took a fling at poerry. These sporty little verses, which took up lots of room, many a week saved the old " Headlight " from looking a bit barren, and form his chief claim to recognition as a man of letters. KENNETH McLOUD GENTRY " Ken " " K. M. " Joplin, Missouri Build today, then, strong and sure, With a firm and ample base; And ascending and secure Shall tomorrow find its place. WHAT more aptly expresses Ken ' s philosophy of life than does this verse from Longfellow ' s The Build- ers? An optimist and an enthusiast, an organ- izer and a leader, a builder and an executive, a restless and energetic person endowed with an activity complex — that is Ken. One often wonders how he finds time for all of the things he does, and just what he gets out of it. A partial explanation is perhaps to be found in one of his fundamental precepts, which is: " One is never too busy to find time for something if he is sufficiently interested in it. " Aside from this activity complex, Ken is a man of moods, of contrasting and conflicting traits. He is proud and aloof, self-assured and self-sufficient. His intellect and good judg- ment have given him an appreciation of music and fine art; his aspiration for advancement has made him an omnivorous reader; his love of good fellowship and fair play has aroused within him an interest in sports. He is im- maculate in his dress, discriminating in his tastes, and broadminded in his outlook. At times he is solitary and reticent, cynical and sarcastic; at others he is gregarious and ag- gressive, nonchalant and enthusiastic. Finally, Ken is a fellow who has innumer- able acquaintances but only a very few intimate friends. He makes friends slowly and retains them for life.

During his spare time in the winter he can always be found over in the gym with a pair of boxing gloves. Late in youngster year our Oak fell in love, and since then his liberty has been spent in town — with the exception of those five minutes necessary to make formation. Since that time it ' s the old, old story for Oakleigh. Small in stature Oakleigh tosses his hat in the ring with the giants. One diminutive champion has got what it takes. Here comes his smile now! You may think that you know this navy, but " Robbie " will soon show you just how little you really do know. With words that the rest of us have knowledge of only through the dictionary, he can discuss any topic known to mankind, as many of us have discovered to our sorrow in the section room. Versatility is his slogan, and there is never a time that he won ' t stop to turn his hand at helping some poor unfortunate, in many divers directions. Nobody can predict much about Oakie ' s future career, but we are sure of one thing — he will be in love as usual ! Here we have a good man, and a friend, no matter what the cost. Best of luck to you, O.ikie, old boy! WILFRED AVES WALTER " Wiljred " " Walt " " Puck ' ' Los Angeles, California ABOUT ten years ago out in that land where " men are men " and the weather is always invigorating, a certain robust young lad used to " ride fence " during the day and sleep with his head on a saddle and his feet to the fire right alongside a group o: old cowpunchers. This young cowboy tired of ranch life, moved to Kansas City, and later took up residence in the fair city of Los An- geles. There he watched the pride of Uncle Sam ' s fleet steam in and out of the harbor at San Pedro and, as many others do, caught the fever and became imbued with the spirit of " down to the sea in ships. " His earnest endeavors won him an appointment and he soon found himself a stanch member of the class of 1930. Never content to be idle for very long at a time, Wilfred spends his autumn davs with the " Hustlers, " sacrificing himself to the un- told punishment delivered by the varsity foot- ball team. In the winter he plays at wrestling. and in the spring he is a devotee of that ancient and honorable sport of discus throwing. A cheery, good-natured, likable fellow with a naturally brilliant and analytical mind, Wil- fred is never too busy to straighten out any of the difficulties with which his less brilliant classmates come to him for assistance. A true and loyal friend, a splendid room mate — truly a successful officer-to-be. " Bilged again! — went down to the third 2 P. O. Assistant Manager Football 4, 3, 2 ; " NA " ; Class Boxing 2. M. P.

No! For this red- headed Dutchman has even ridden in a rodeo. Hutch doesn ' t stoop to untruths, but why shouldn ' t the man telling the last story have the best chance? " Why, one time, out to Cal ... " And this man isn ' t an Indian his little brother only hit him in the nose with a hammer. When the night clerk of the Annapolis Hotel sees Hutch ' s trick knee coming through the door, he sweeps out the best room and shines up the coal scuttle. When the cops in Middletown see Red get off the train, they lock up the pharmacy and hold a convention around the piano. Youngsters playing poker pick up the cards when Hutch comes in the room. Hutch is a dog fancier . . . " Now, if you want to know the difference between a New- foundland dog and a Newfoundland dog . . . ' he must have meant a St. Bernard. Where is that noise? Who is that boning before reveille? From whence emanates that fund of knowledge on the upkeep and repair of the modern prune? It must be Hutch! JAMES ALVIN ADKINS " Catty " " Ad " Washington, D. C. CATTY is a man who could easily have distinguished himself in the Academy had he not decided it was too much trouble and not worth it. The truth is that Catty had rather just play around and enjoy life. Despite this easy-going outlook he starred Plebe year and stayed up in the first few sec- tions consistently the rest of the time. Not only this, but " Catty " also did some good work in athletics. Soccer was his forte and company sports his weakness. Nor was he lacking in social activity and interests. Many a Washington " deb " was indebted to Catty for a pleasant week-end at the Academy. Catty possesses a natural wit and sense of humor, a frankness and sincerity, and a spirit of loyalty, and good fellowship which have won for him a high place in our esteem. We recognize his ability, admire his philosophy, and like him as a classmate. When " Mush " joins " Hutch " and " Catty. " the boudoir reeks of oratory. The entire com- pany gathers around to hear the dictates of the three philosophers. A literary existence, in which the " Cosmo " has been the best seller, and a love of things non-reg kept " Catty " from being at the top of the class. We like him better for all of these things, and wish we could keep him with us. -rew Squad 4, 3, Gymkhana 4. C. P. O. . Log Staff 4, 3. 2. 1.

" Rome, New York FOR the second time in history, a Roman crashes through. Although not a brilliant student, Leo has sufficient savviness, to get by with little difficulty. This quality makes him an exceedingly dangerous wife, for why should one man study when another does not have to? His athletic accomplishments, though not of varsity class, are not to be entirely neglected. His most important occupation for two and a half years was the weak squad. May showed that he was not so feeble when they started to take his leave away, and by a superhuman effort, he made the " A " test. On being freed from the squad, he turned to the more inter- esting subjects of billiards, bowling, piano playing, and the Cosmo. It was in these that he found himself and exhibited an unusual ability. First Class cruise brought disaster to any chance of presentation of stripes to our hero. Leo ' s wanderings in Weymouth were whis- pered from wardroom to double bottoms. He has had his troubles, lots of them, but there are bigger things ahead, and his absent- mindedness should fade out on the China Station. A hard man to beat when he is " going strong, " we hope that he will give his best for the service. MERVIN HALSTEAD " Merv " Cincinnati, Ohio HALSTEAD, from his infancy, has been a cosmopolite. Born in a little Army post in Montana he spent his first few years dashing madly about the States with a couple of years in the Philippines thrown in for good measure. Washington finally claimed him as its own, but his wanderlust was not yet satisfied; so behold! we have " Halstead of Navy. " He early gained a reputation for " savviness " and during Plebe year was the joy and despair of all upper classmen. Few of us will forget the time he stated, under a rapid fire cross- examination, that Christmas comes on the twenty-sixth of December in leap year. In spite of this, he has been unsat only once in his career, though many and many a time only that old " Halstead fight " brought him through victorious in his battle with the Academic De- partments. He never does things by halves. When " Merv " studies, he studies, and when he secures, the books are not cracked. As a result each recitation is either another solid blow landed on the " Ac " Departments or a little round goose egg. Halsteads athletic ability in many lines is attested by the fact that he has played water polo, basketball and tennis. But tennis has always been his specialty and a Halstead spe- cialty will ever be something to wonder at. He played number one on the Plebe team and made his TNT youngster year. Clean Sleeve. 2 P.

Page One Hundred Fifty-eight ' ROBERT FULTON JENNINGS " Bob " " Francois " " Slim " New Jersey OUR Bob was young when he first put his six feet and two inches inside of Ban- croft Hall. A lad just out of high school he was, and he wanted to see how the rest of the world lived. He has missed little of what there has been to see, too. Versatility and good fellowship are his out- standing characteristics, and they never do him wrong. Football, basketball, and track claim him during their respective seasons, and Carvel Hall receives its share during the remainder of his unoccupied time. There is never a hop that escapes his timely appearance. He was christened Robert Fulton, but he does not seem to be so gifted as was his illus- trious ancestor. By some means, however, he has succeeded in satisfying the academic de- partments to the extent of a 2.5, at least, and when Xmas leave looks uncertain, his accom- plishments are most convincing. With him it is work a while, play a while, then work some more and laugh. " What? No mail! " That is his weakness, and his day is ruined if the mate doesn ' t leave him a letter. But that rarely happens, for his correspondence shows as much popularity on the outside as among his classmates. JOHN GEORGE HOWELL " Jack " " Dean " Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania ANOTHER Pittsburgh boy— at least he lives within fifteen miles of the " smoky city. " Jack was a veteran " collich " boy before the Navy claimed him, having spent one year at Carnegie Tech and another at the University of Pittsburgh, before serving his time here. „ „ He has always been able to fool the Ac departments with very little effort on his part; however, he has experienced some tribulations. Track has always claimed Jack ' s athletic talents sd that he has devoted his four years to this sport, with cross country on the side. There, too, he has spent much of his time, leisure and otherwise, getting material for our weekly publications. Jack is a true friend. He will always be remembered as one who possesses those cer- tain qualities which command the respect of all. Dean isn ' t savvy and he doesn t carry excess gold on his sleeve. But when Spring comes around, and the boys trot around the cinder paths, you ' ll see Jack up among the leaders. In the years to come we ' ll wager his service record will show Jack among the first to break the tape. 2 P.

When occasion offers Feet can render an entertaining dissertation on prunes and Port- land — never in Dago, however. Dago and George became well acquainted during Plebe and Youngster years — so well, indeed, that George was very reluctant to fur- ther exposure Second Class year. • Such an attitude called for reserve power from the sorrel-topped cranium and the call was as promptly answered, for be it known that not for naught holds he the record of the cham- pion marathon sleeper. ' Long, patient bunk practice furnished the necessary energy which was converted to kinetic, and the Dago situa- tion was well in hand. A healthy appetite, a warm heart, and a jovial disposition constitute a down payment on the happiness of life in addition to strong credentials for George ' s Service career. WALFRIED HALTON FROMHOLD ' Wallf " Frommie " " Welfried " Kansas City, Missouri OUR Wally left his native hearthstones for the Academy imbued with just enough of the well-known stubbornness of Missouri to hold a true course and speed for four years, with his eyes on the happy and yet sad day of graduation. Aside from his athletic and executive abili- ties, the thing that endeared him to his friends was his marvelous recounting of tales which sometimes seemed to border on the edge of Munchausen, and still we believe them. The Midshipmen ' s summer cruises almost proved his undoing, for he became, sad to relate, a " liberty hound. " He claims that the saying " a girl in every port " is not the half of it. There ought to be at least two. But since one of his trips to a certain football game, he has been strangely reticent about the cruises. Due to his excellent playing and coaching he piloted the class basketball team to victory. Finally, when Wally received his buzzard sec- ond class year, that settled it — nothing less than Admiral and 150 lbs. Clean Sleeve; 2 P. O. Class Swimming 4, 5. Gvmkhana Cast 4. 2 P.

Monk saw a little light when he was a Plebe because he is a Navy Junior and could at least inter- pret most of the first classmen ' s questions. He also became acquainted with the Naval Acad- emy at an early age as a " yard engine, " run- ning around the yard " greasing up " the Jimmy Legs and getting on to all the tricks. If you want to see Monk after drill, don ' t drop by his room. You might find his " wife " there but you won ' t find him. There is a sort of formula that might help you locate him though. In the fall you will find him on the soccer field ; in the winter, he will be duck- ing men in water polo; and in the spring he will be demonstrating his stick work to the lacrosse coach. And on week-ends you will have to get a plane to catch him on his horse. Evidently he spent his time in the elemen- tary schools usefully. No academic subject has ever worried him and studies have more or less been one of his hobbies. But when you see him with a silly grin on his face, " prenez garde " against one of his practical pranks. These kept him from " starring " Plebe year. Rather than give up his pranks, however, he put out a little more effort the rest of his career and thereby compensated for their effect on his academic standing. WALTER MANLY FOSTER " Walt " " Mullie " Tuscaloosa, Alabama MULLIE FOSTER? Yeah, I know him. Uh, huh, heck of a good skate! Kind you want to be with, you know, whether the gang ' s whoopin ' ' er up a bit, or whether it ' s just you and him for something sorter serious like. Yep, he ' s O. K. Work? Sure he ' ll work, when it ' s there to be done, and no fuss nor feathers ' bout it, neither. Don ' t care whether it ' s some figger- ing you want; he ' ll take that over the bumps for you; or he ' ll chip paint. Don ' t guess you ' ll get much of a growl out ' er Molly. ' Nother thing ' bout Molly, though, you ' ll like right off, that ' s that grin o ' his. Molly keeps it working, and he means it. ' Taint like these smiles that don ' t go any further back than a fellow ' s teeth; it ' s all the way with Molly. Don ' t mean he ' s one of these Kee- wanis rah-rah boys; it ' s just that men don ' t blubber because the road gets rough. Oh, yeah, he ' ll kid you along a lot, Molly will, but you ' ll like it, even when it ' s on you; there ' ll be something in the tone, kind of, that ' ll take any sting out of it. And you ' ll always know where he stands. Recommend that you get him if you can? Sure I do — but there ' s a J. O. Mess some- where that ' ll never forgive you if you do.

If you are out of skags, or wish your Dago trans- lated, just see Rollo. Many classmates have reaped the benefits of his private Dago classes. A better friend would be hard to find and a more cheerful one does not exist. A con- scientious attention to study has made the aca- demic routine an easy road to travel. Not savvy, Rollo batters has way through the books with more success than most of his classmates. Jigger ' s philosophy of life is unknown to us. We remember him in Plebe summer, alas! a mere babe in arms. Now look at him, a veritable Arrow collar model. A Yankee by birth. Rollo doesn ' t yet feel at home in our southern clime. He recalls with long-drawn sighs the New Hampshire home and fireside that he deserted to ioin the ranks of the pampered pets. He likes our Navy and the service will provide a profession for Rollo that will give him an opportunity to show the ability that is in him. LAURANCE OLDHAM MATHEWS, JR. " Sonny " " Matty " Atlanta.

Bill has had his share of ups and down of Navy life, and while the ups have seldom car- ried him to the first section in academics, he could always be relied upon to come through when the downs were most threatening. As past master of the art of swimming, Bill devoted the better part of three seasons to the sub-squad, but even his devotion to this loyal band of floundering brothers did not demand all of his time, and the lure of a flashy blue and gold jersey kept Bill romping over the cinders until he had gained a place among the men on the track team. It is recalled by some that boxing also had a very significant place in William ' s athletic career. Bill is a natural born kidder. and enjoys running his classmates more than the Plebes, but a more sincere side of his nature has made many friends, and his loyalty to them is the secret of his unusual popularity. " Aw, I can ' t be bothered ! " ALLAN BARKHURST ROBY " Pete " " Al " Boston, Kentucky YES, co rpi sir, commander, that dirt in the corner does look right bad. " This remark attributed to the subject of this sketch gives us a true index to his agree- able disposition and desire to satisfy — just an- other Chesterfield from Kentucky. Allan cannot be classed with the brilliant nor with the plodders. Only trustworthy Gregory of 5 A.M. alarm fame coupled with his ability to get through in a pinch has warded off the attacks of the " Dago " department. " Comment ca va? " she cried, but AI failed to astound her with his reply. However, such trivialities did not handicap him in Europe and Pete was the interpreter for every party. Aside from voyag- ing around the world " dans quatre-vingt jours " with Phineas Fogg, Pete has found time for many other activities. Basketball is a great hobby and served as an outlet for that store of energy which keeps him always doing some- thing if it be nothing more than kicking his roommate ' s shins beneath the table. As for lacrosse, well, let him tell it, " Who ' s manag- ing this team anyhow. " Allan ' s ability to " come down with it, " how- ever non-apropos, coupled with a touch of humor, makes him a good mixer and his un- failing habit of greeting everyone keeps his list of friends steadily increasing.

The Demon takes the Navy seriously. A passion for the impossible and the indubitable tendencies of a home-wrecker have marked his stay with us. As soon as this gay deceiver made his advent into our fold the local yokels came to the undeniable conclusion that our paternal an- cestor, Noah, arrived at years before, " The Navy isn ' t what it used to be. " That venerable philosopher, Tacitus, most vaingloriously claims that " he doth seem a saint when most he playeth the devil. " So verily doth Pete. Ever hath he been of the opinion that the " Soul of a man is in his clothes " — except in that helicoidal striped habit of Youngster year. Hard times on seas that smacked somewhat of trycocks and steam valves alone prohibited the Demon from ac- cepting enviable positions of a literary nature. That magic paste of his, termed " Noxema. " hath been recommended for every human ail- ment from lethargy of the legs to inhibitions of the intellect. " The beauty of a lovely woman is like music " and Pete hath always been an ardent admirer of good music. May " the lines fall unto you in pleasant places, " Pete. You have a goodly heritage.

And " Mush- mouth " seems to have brought along a goodly supply of that same Florida sunshine and hap- piness. A cheery " wha ' d ' ye say, Tillie, " and his famous smile is enough to drive away any case of the blues. Once during the V. M.

Mush rushed over to Coach Schutz, apparently all hot and bothered: " Substitute Crane, substitute Crane! " he whispered, " Meeker ' s getting tired. " Dud excelled in football and wrestling dur- ing his four years here, and only a series of injuries have prevented him from attaining the honor that would otherwise have been his. Dud ' s ever-ready sense of humor and charming personality have made him admired of many; while a heart of gold and a vast appreciation and understanding of others have made Dud beloved of those who are so fortunate as to really know the man behind the smile. HORATIO ALONZO LINCOLN " Abe " " Link " Grand Forks. North Dakota IT is not always the size that makes a man. for although Link is short in stature, he is about the most potent product that the wilds of North Dakota have to offer. Some call it a gift; while others call it an achievement to look upon the hatdest of duties with a smile, as does Link. If we had study halls instead of bunks, Link could easily have starred. Also, if nature had gifted him with a little more artistic ability to translate his mental thoughts he would have scored much higher on those " sketch and describe " slips. " Independent as a hog on ice, if he cannot stand up he sits down, " as the saying goes. Such is our Link. Some think him stubborn because of his infernal positiveness in quota- tions, but those who stick with him and finish the argument usually find him right. He is not always perfect in this, naturally; but when he says a thing he means it and abides by it. His potency does not pertain to the physical alone, for he possesses pipes, past experiences, " tillies. " and a line that will put the best of us in the shade.

He was in everything, and always in the front rank. After his high school career Al thought he would see the world. He passed some time on the West Coast, drifted to the East Coast, and was received with open arms by the " forty percent " at our fair institution. The world, however, had left its mark and he now had a " laissez faire " attitude. Al is a living example of just how high one can stand with the minimum of " boning. " His excellence in the classroom is surpassed only by his oratorical eloquence in Bancroft Hall while discoursing on any subject. Possessing a very good imagination, a fair amount of ex- perience, and a simple, convincing way, he is almost unbeatable. An even-tempered disposition, a strong be- lief in chivalry, a talent for making friends, and a love of fair play make Al the best of pals. VICTOR SOLOMAN GAULIN " Vic " " Thug " Lowell, Massachusetts o h Meester Gaulin, on etudiezvous le francais? I give you a five-O, Mr. Gaulin. " These and various similar remarks instantly suggest one person to us — Thug, the French savoir. Gifted with a natural linguistic ability, and equipped with a thorough foundation, Thug moved smoothly through the French course gaining 3-8 ' s and 3.9 ' s with no efforr at all. Nor was he far behind in the other subjects. He spent most of his time in the first and second sections and could sling chalk with the best of them. Speaking of slinging things reminds us that Thug was not half bad with a lacrosse stick. Every spring he drew his stick and dashed around with the rest of our devotees of the gentle game of lacrosse, and did his share of " ham and egging. " Company sporrs received attention from Thug, too. Nor were women left out of his scheme of things. Although he was not late returning from liberty as habitually as was his room- mate, he managed to work in a little dragging occasionally. So, all in all. Thug ' s was a rather balanced schedule, a little work, a little sporr, a little of the women, and plenty of sleep. " Cest bien. " l P. O. ' ; Football 4, Wrestling 4 ; Track Squad 2, 1. IPO.; G. P.

That was " Wing.- Just listen to that familiar drawl and be convinced that he is a true son of the South. While not exactly a snake, that characteristic Southern way has won for him a place of admiration among the ladies; and. to then delight, he is usually oresent at the hops and parties. " Wing has been interested in athletics in rccdemics, in regulations, and in women— but he has not taken any of them too seriously. Calm and amiable, cheerful and easy-going, Wing just moves along enjoying life and its pleasures. , One look at the Georgian and you wonder how a human being could move so slowly. And he gets there just the same. Walters good nature has made him a host of friends, and we all hope to meet him again on the long cruise. DAVID ALONZO HARRIS " Rebel " " Dave " Cordele, Georgia DAVID thought at first that he would like to be a mining engineer, but after a year of studying at Dahlonega, Georgia, he changed his mind (enough to change any- body ' s mind) and joined the Navy. Since that time he has been completely converted and says he intends to follow the sea all his life. The only thing that can be referred to as " she " which anyone has been able to induce this rebel to associate with is ships, and he spends the greater part of his spare time build- ing models of them. Plebe year, Rebel came to grips with the English Department, and almost lost, but his steady, determined plugging brought him out on top. Since that time, while he has not made any exceptional record, he has managed to keep on the bright side of the 2.5. Good natured, lazy, and generous. Rebel makes the best friend a fellow could have. 2 P. O. 1 P. O.

The Colonel is rather a Beau Brummel, too, and has often delighted us with his attractive drags. Futhermore, he is a prize raconteur and has contributed amusement and interest to more than one " bull session. " Some of the toreadors call him wooden. but those who know him claim that it is his natural love for argument that causes him to think more of proving the book wrong than of making a thirty in class.

" " Holy " San Francisco, California GEORGE, being an Army Junior, had vague ideas of going to West Point. Upon graduation from high school in San Francisco, however, his mind was abruptly changed. Having seen the photoplay. The Mid- shipman, his interest in the Navy was aroused and he decided that life at sea was much more romantic than chasing Army mules. Hence George decided to cast his lot with the Navy. To those who know " Holy " well, he appear . in his true form. With an unassuming atti- tude and an air of determination, he has won a place in our hearts. In his seriousness, how- ever, there is a dash of humor that demon- strates George ' s ability to enjoy the pleasures of life. He is not a consistent " Snake " and stoutly asserts that women in general have no charm for him. He exhibits, however, some weakness for the fairer sex. George is one of the exponents of " Comme il faut, " being a strict observer of regulations. He states that his greatest achievement was staying in the Academy for four years. But to us, it never seemed as if the necessary effort bothered him. " Now, Mister, what is the moral of that little lesson? " " Plebes is plebes, sir.

W. " New Rockford, North Dakota THIS lad is a combination of many char- acteristics. He is silent at times, and noisy and playful at others. He is intel- ligent but untroubled by academic aspirations; and he is fairly regulation, without any especial concern for discipline. There is no end to his good humor and his ability to see the happy side of life; and he enjoys practical jokes and pranks more than training table chow. Speaking of training tables reminds one that P. W. has had a reserved seat on same for years. Crew and football are his forte, and he paddles a mean oar. Aside from this, P. W. devotes most of his athletic endeavors to chasing fellows, or being chased by them, in connection with some prank. P. W. is a good-hearted, easy-going, loyal, sincere, clean-cut fellow— he is a fine friend and a worthy classmate. E. O. PRICE " Eddie " LUTHERVILLE, MARYLAND LUTHERV1LLE is famous for three things — its fires, its girls ' school, and our Eddie. Although he just missed being a Balti- more boy by a few miles, Eddie has made up for it by loudly extolling the merits of Luther- ville. It seems that there are frequent big tires, which burn up the one and only big house, occasional additions to the census, and other items of international interest — and Eddie always keeps us informed as to these latest news items. Eddie is a big overgrown boy despite his years at the University of Maryland and at the Naval Academy. He delights in pranks and horse-play, and is never happier than when up to some devilment. Nice, flappy ears which, as someone has ably expressed it, make him look like a taxi coming down the street with the doors open, add to his prominence. Eddie is good natured and cheerful, an in- different student, and a good track man. He is loyal and sincere, withal, and is a real class- mate and friend. 2 P- O.; ., ,, .

He had his hands full Plebe year, as do most Plebes, attempting to attain that high standard, the immortal " 2.5. " His best attain- ment was his " grease " mark, which came from beautifully shined shoes; the shining habit grew upon him with the result that his roommate has not had to buy shoe polish since. With the advent of his first " drag Mac sallied forth to the hops, where he made an enviable record. This weakness was overcome, however, at the completion of one year ' s strug- gle; and only twice since has " Mac " accepted the invitation to drag.

Burlington, a proud little town of the Sunny South, knew and felt its loss, but was consoled with the thoughts of future fame. A winning personality, a captivating smile, a love of amusement, and a general good nature have won " Eb " a host of friends not only in the Academy but also in Annapolis; so that now no dance at Carvel Hall or Sun- day afternoon tea-fight is complete without Bill. Now you would imagine that a Don Juan such as our " Eb " would spend all of his time with the fair sex, but not so with this true son of old North Carolina.

He grew up in Iowa, too far from the sea for an ocean breeze to penetrate, but after four years of military life he realized is was a salty atmosphere he needed. Hence the addition to the Navy. Plebe and Youngster years saw him busy with sports. Dick had a tough break at the beginning of second class year. His knee went back on him and prevented his participa- tion in any athletics for the remainder of the year. As a result the Varsity backlield lost a fast, shifty, hard tackling back and the lacrosse team a clever, hard fighting attack- man. Dick is a hard man to duplicate on the field or on the floor. Academics never bothered him seriously. He always managed to stand well up in his class in spite of his roommates. In every port he manages to meet his share of pretty girls. Hop nights usually find him at Dahlgren Hall, and he seldom comes alone. Dick is a true friend, always ready to help, strong on thrift but not afraid to help a friend in need.

Class lacrosse next claimed his atten- tion and though that was not won by ' 30 in Youngster year, it was not J. J. ' s fault. He held down a defense position in fine style. A trick knee prevented him from performing in class football second class year but did not keep him off the varsity water polo squad. Academics were not so easy on J. J. It was a hard struggle for him at times, owing to his desire to mix more than enough pleas- ure with his work. His passion for Cosmo and Saturday Evening Post during the first three months of each term generally caused him trouble in the later stages. To him the word " literature ' ' meant " mystery stories " and he read all on which he could lay hands. Women have gone wild over J. J.

He does everything halfway except laugh and manage rifle teams. Sam ' ll sweep out the room and leave enough dust under the table to stuff a mattress, stow his locker so all hands are needed to get the door closed, bone every assignment for the four years ' course in never more than twenty minutes apiece, and leave every exam at the end of the first hour; but when he laughs he exercises every vasomotor in his system and makes himself famous, and when he manages the small-bore team he chal- lenges all champions and makes the team famous. He has been accused of being a mono- maniac on the subject of firearms. Should he ever forsake the Gyrenes he would un- doubtedly be of invaluable assistance around and about Chicago; but really, he isn ' t a monomaniac; it ' s just that the son of a col- lege professor and an M.D. must have some- thing to work out the surplus gray matter on, if he positively refuses to bone. It ' s a shame, too, because the innumerable big four- bit words he has in stock and his propensity for dabbling in Horace, in spite of Alma Mater ' s aversion to classics, eulogies, and dead languages, indicates a versatility that will surely waste its fragrance on some desert air if he wanders with the Marines, as per ambition. WILLIAM THORNTON WOODARD " Salty " " Little Willie " Medicine Lodge, Kansas OUT where the shallow, sandy st reams of Kansas freeze in the Winter and dry up in the Summer, the country was getting too settled for this adventurous spirit. So " Salty " shipped in the Navy to see the world. Then, finding the service a pro- fession in keeping with his philosophy, he aspired to a position higher than the rank and file. After a hard year in San Diego he won his appointment to the Academy. Plebe year was filled with many trials, owing chiefly to the uninvited attentions of a squad leader, and in trying to stay sat in English. That year finally came to a close, much to his joy, bringing a cruise to the West Coast, where his interests were still high (heart throbs). Youngster year he nearly lost a battle with the Math Department, but a winning blow dealt to a re-exam fixed his diag securely. Our " Little Willie " has been interested in wrestling, but his progress along that line has been impeded a number of times by injuries received on the mat. As a classmate we admire and respect Salty; as an officer we hope our tours of duty will bring us together often. For we then will know that we have a brother officer by our side who has his heart and soul and mind in the Service. And what more can the Service ask of any man?

With a spirit of adventure and romance strong in him, he turned to the sea. And with the desire to command, he aspired to a commission. He had difficulty in getting his appointment, but since then he has found it no bed of roses. Plebe year he nearly lost both rounds with the Academic Departments, but fought it out and beat them for a chance at Youngster Year. Since then he has never been unsat badly, but it is doubtful if he ever studies. Not wooden, of course, but there are far too many pleasures in life to let the " Acs " bother him much. Phoebe is too small to be a more famous athlete but he can play tennis and the banjo, especially in the latter, as witness the fact of his position in the " N. A. Ten. " Phoebe ' s whole life is his music, for his banjo was going, even along with the " vie, " any time of night or day, studv hour, or otherwise. What that boy can ' t do with his banjo isn ' t worth doing; he can make it talk, cry or laugh, even as he wants you to do and you can ' t help vourself. Phoebe has played his way into our hearts and we expect to hear some more of that banjo in some J. O. mess when, after the rigors of some four hours on the bridge, Phoebe will relax our souls and lull us to dreamland. WILLIAM HENRY SANDERS " Bill " " Sandy " San Diego, California GOLD was discovered in California but we have discovered some gold that has strayed from California, and our " Bill " is just as true, pure, and precious as those first nuggets that Sutter found in his millrace. San Diego is in the midst of the land of sunshine and " Bill " carried its golden touch right to Bancroft Hall. With this sunny disposition, he also carries those sterner quali- ties that make him a " Man among men. " Straightforward, honest and upright, with a smile for everyone and a cheery word thrown in, this is " Bill " Sanders. Blue waters of the Pacific were his inspira- tion ; the strength of it was enough to carry him through a year in the Service and finally to the gates of the Academy. A little perse- verance now and then has pulled him through, and " Bill " has a fervent hope that when he is in the Fleet all the ships will be electrically driven and not steam. Company sports and the Gym were " Bill ' s " recreational pastimes, for though a " Sand- blower. " he has a physique that any man would be proud of having. Bill is now dreaming of the days when he will be back on his beloved West Coast and if we dip into the dim distant future we may see him back there again making the Battle Fleet the pride of the Navy.

Page One Hundred Seventy-five JOSEPH CLINTON CLIFTON " Joe " Paducah, Kentucky THERE are only two seasons of the year for Joe; football season and the rest of the year. The University of Ken- tucky lost the greatest football prospect that ever graced that institution when Joe decided to come to Navy. And from Plebe year on, the words Joe Clifton and football were so closely connected that one thought of each in terms of the other. Joe was one of the gamest players and hardest hitting backs that the Navy has ever known. His whole life at the Academy was bound up in football. During the season, he practiced in the after- noon; and the rest of the day he talked, lived and dreamed football. On Saturday Joe was there backing the line (and how he did back it!) and smashing through the line for those precious yards that made a first down. The rest of the year Joe was after the academics that made it possible for him to play the next season. Joe studied just as he played football, with all the energy of his being. If Joe didn ' t know how to work a problem, he knew someone who did and therefore learned how. Such perseverance is bound to bring results, and throughout the game, the Academic Departments may have made a few first downs, but Joe made the touchdowns and was on top when the battle was over. JOSEPHUS AMBERG ROBBINS " Joe " " Robbie " Mavfield, Kentucky ROBBIE is one of those happy, rosy- cheeked lads whom the cares of the years never seem to affect. There seems to be little of the French in the name Robbins, but you should observe him some time when he ' s trying to put his point across. Mon Dieu, quelle expression! The perfect imitator, Joe can impersonate anyone from Joe Cook to Will Rogers. Ask him to go through his repertoire of famous walks. His other physical attributes have shown themselves in almost every sport the Academy offers, although his time has always been curtailed by efforts to stay " sat " ; so that mentality has constantly struggled with the physical, and evidently won, for Joe is still with us. Class lacrosse, company soccer, and the lightweight crews, in the meantime, have suffered from the jinx that pursues him. In fact, his sec- ond-class year he even found it necessary to crawl off in a room by himself, where he could pull sat from time to time in peace. Some day this perseverance must inevitably be rewarded, however, and Joe will flame across the Service firmament with medals on his chest, the band playing " My Old Kentucky Home, " and the May field Gazette acclaiming " Local boy makes good!

HEMMING " Harold " Newburgh, New York HAILING from Newburgh, New York, where he watched his grandfather build ships, Harold at least had some idea of ships and sailors when he joined the Navy. Not particularly savvy, he has had no great difficulty with his academics work, if we over- look some trouble with Dago, Second Class year. By no means a snake, yet he can enjoy to the fullest his occasional drag. His greatest failing, however, is not the fair sex, but the pursuit of a little white ball which the Hamaneggers play with. It was not in vain, for he won his numerals on the Plebe squad, and has continued it with varying success ever since. What we like most is his unfailing good nature prompted by a heart as large as he is. This, with his carefree, happy disposition, should carry him a long way in the Service. FRANK TRUMAN SLOAT " Frank " Sayre, Pennsylvania WHEN Frank joined the Navy, Penn State lost a permanent smile. Granted that he is as effective a " griper " as the Navy can claim, still he sur- rounds each gripe with a smile, the kind that makes griping a pleasure. That " Glorious Society of Gripers " has, in Frank, a note- worthy member. What of the Physical? Frank reached the highest realms of physical attainment when he passed the 440. His feet were like lead ! Each yard seemed a mile! He strained, fought, struggled ! ! Success at last in 64.9 seconds. Ambition hath its reward. Of the Intellectual? Frank ' s bookshelf attests his belief in the maxim, " A little learning is a dangerous thing.

What — you ' ve never heard of Jamaica? Well, any- way, he drew his strongbox and broom and embarked for a long and adventuresome jour- ney through Uncle Sam ' s Nautical School. Plebe year saw him sail calmly through the academics, over which others less gifted stum- bled and fell by the wayside. Twas ever thus, for the dreaded Ordnance, Steam and Math never held any mysteries for him. As one of Navy ' s athletes — there are few better,— he has been, during his four years, an invaluable aid to the Navy track team as a sprinter and a broad jumper. Many as- piring college sprinters have had an excellent rear view of his heels as he nonchalantly kicked cinders in their eyes. And as a broad jumper — how that man can jump! His ability in this sport won him the coveted -N- his youngster year. Many and varied are his stories of leaves spent in Barcelona, Naples and Boston. Be- ing a true son of the Navy he has a " sweet- heart in every port. " You can tell by the look in his eyes that he drags, and sometimes even blind, but despite this handicap, his average is well above a 30. As a friend — the best there is, one of the finest men one could hope to meet throughout the walks of life. He is on the threshold of a new life — a Plebe in the fleet, but his friends will vouch that his career as a naval officer will be a success, as has been his career as a Midshipman. RICHARD R. BRINER " Rip " Upper Montclair, New Jersey FOUR short years ago there came into our midst one who was designed by the fickle finger of Fate to achieve success without notoriety, fame without fortune, so- phistication void of cynicism, and a general cosmopolitan attitude to be equaled by few and excelled by none. The reference is to the above gentleman, known within the intimate circle of his camaraderie as Rip; one whose personality and disposition have classified him far above the " fair weather " type of compan- ion. To know Rip is to cherish him as a lifelong friend, but one must first become familiar with his idiosyncrasies to know the man. With these he is well equipped, — per- haps excessively so. Generalized, each points to perfection in details. Probably the most outstanding is a " locker complex. " Endowed from childhood with the virtue of neatness, this portion of his room presents a veritable Utopia to the keen and scrutinizing eyes of the inspecting officer. A mere glance inside more than justifies this. In the " game of hearts " Rip has been, like many of us, an unsuspecting victim. Characteristic of a gen- tleman his preference is for blondes, and it is rumored that one in particular — but that ' s a long story. His success academically has been closely paralleled with success in the cinder- path. Confining most of his prowess to the cinderpath, several of our sports have but naturally lacked his active cooperation. How- ever, Rifle, Soccer, and Cross Country bene- fited materially from his abilities. The service gained a man when Montclair turned over one of its sons to acquire an education on the banks of the Severn. Track 4. 3, 2, 1 ; Plebe Captain.

ALTHOUGH Punk possesses that happy faculty of always seeming the very em- bodiment of vital activity he has, never- theless, survived the ordeal of four years ' train- ing with a minimum expenditure of energy. Academics held no fear for him, presenting rather an interesting game from which he emerged almost a star man (much to the an- noyance of his roommates ! ) . Punk is one of those rare individuals with fixed ideals, rather fixed ideas. His mental processes are acute; and while he possesses extreme confidence in himself, he is not the one to demand subservience to his own de- mands and ideas. As a result Punk ' s develop- ment at the academy has been one of almost astounding proportions. Aspirations toward excellence in crew ac- counted for most of Punk ' s spare time. Handicapped by weight, the golden oppor- tunity came with the advent of the lightweight crew. Little time elapsed before he was hold- ing down the position of stroke oar. Punk ' s " affairs du coeur, " unlike those of his brass-buttoned friends, have been few. Although afforded many opportunities, Punk has remained true blue to his inspiration back in Yonkers. A Square shooter, straight thinker, clean fighter and real pal, — we are just a little better off for having known him. ROBERT JOSEPH STROH " Bob " " Red " New York City BOB, a red-headed ball player from the sand lots of New York City, has been in our midst for four years, but few of us have had the honor of knowing the real man. Always reticent, though not at all shy, Bob has emulated the example of our late president and has acheived remarkable results. A few words, carefully chosen, and at the proper time, have been his means of communication to the great outside; and as a result, Bob is one of the most popular men in his class. Such popularity, as you may guess, is of the lasting kind. It is based upon real admira- tion and respect for a man who has achieved success through individual acts of virtue. In no other man can we find a more fitting example of the old adage, " Actions speak louder than words. " Always ready to serve in any capacity for the welfare of his class or Academy, and play- ing a hard game at short or third base, Red has endeared himself to us. And so when he was out there in front of the stands going through the contortions of leading us in a 4-N or Siren, we were with him, and thus his success as a cheerleader was assured. A hard hitting boy whose actions were far greater than his words, Bob Stroh will live long in our memories and lucky will be the shipmate with whom he serves in the Fleet.

Any subject was blotto unless replete with problems; then it was Wet ' s joy. He became fond of the light diversion of standing one or two in his class when still but a flighty youth laboring for his B.S. at Kentucky State Teacher ' s College. Surely things must have come too easy there, however, for Johnny found, upon assailing the Ac. De- partments, U. S. N. A., no particular trouble in carrying them by storm. His other directing strong points are the ladies (he wouldn ' t turn his head if the Queen of Sheba passed him in the Yard), moral standards, scorching argument, a few personal prejudices, and the secret of applica- tion of sufficient ergs at the opportune moment in the proper place. His ambition is B.S., M.S.. Ph.D., Sc.D., and any other honors or degrees lying around that can be picked up with a few hours ' research work, the author- ship of a couple of text-books, the formation of a basic working theory or two, and the establishment of a half dozen new physical constants, to say nothing of computing various and sundry Useless Tables.

Don is dauntless, fearless, and tenacious. Perhaps this noteworthy character has made him one of Spike ' s best proteges. In the ring, he packs a wicked right and as a result has several Navy victories to his credit. Don is a hard hitter at whatever he does and this good quality has won him a host of friends. Among his numerous pastimes Don has made photographing his greatest hobby. He takes enough good pictures on the cruises to show that he has really covered the ter- ritory, and his contributions to the Lucky Bag are a tribute to his zeal. Veldon has had some tough breaks, but in years to come he can remember that four years of boxing never saw him defeated. And we, his friends, as we see him go through life will see him crash through in the same old way in whatever the Service gives him to do. We are going to miss " Vel, " but some ship is going to be happier for his presence, and some scrappy band of Bluejackets will profit under his tutelage. " Say.

Pennsylvania DON ' S weakness for the sea, though well known to his friends, is a mystery to all of them. Coming from the home of a minister in a small inland town, Don has taken to the water like a duck. His nautical propensities are mostly mani- fested by his well-mastered art of griping, fiercely and frequently, but seldom persistently, and by his irresistible attraction to canoes. A canoe is his OAO, canoeing is his dragging and by canoeing Don never meant the pas- sive, though delightful, paddling and drift- ing about Spa Creek that is so endeared to most of us as the scene of certain heart attacks. Rather Don ' s adventures consisted of expeditions far beyond Greenbury Point, the WB A bridge, and Annapolis Roads. One September his discoveries were almost extended to Davy Jones ' locker, itself — but by a great deal of swimming and much phon- ing for motor boats, Don lost momentarily his hopes for Kinert ' s life, but forever his canoe, built by his own hands. At least, he still adventures, knowing no weather too forbidding, no distance too great, and no portage too rough or tiresome. Of course he and Wally Green, who plays Damon to Don ' s Pythias, are not always on time to- evening meal formation, but what ' s a few- demerits more or less when you ' ve landed a hundred so handily.

Page One Hundred Eighty-one JAMES ELSWORTH KYES " ]immy " Everett, Washington SINCE the early days of Plebe summer, Jimmy ' s activities have been numerous. Lucky Bag and Log interest him because of his love of writing. Track takes up much of his time during the spring and win- ter months, while in the fall cross country demands his attention. In 1928 he ran on the class championship team in the latter sport. With all these he still finds, of course, the necessary time for boning. Jimmy, a favorite son of Everett, Washing- ton, came East in the summer of 1926 re- solved to become a mariner. Little did he dream that after leaving behind those forest fires he was to run into a Math course which would prove many times hotter. That one subject has been the bane of his existence at the Naval Academy but in spite of it he has stood well up in the class each year. Among his many virtues there are two which outshine the rest. First is his helpful spirit. He is always willing to aid in a worthy cause, and is as enthusiastic in his execution as in his conception. The second is that energy and thoroughness and precision which are so necessary to success in any field. DONALD FRANCIS KRICK " Pooch " " Kay " Boise, Idaho AS Apollo, the Sun God, winged his way over the heavens, so does our " Pooch " wing his way through life, with his irrepressible good humor, sunny coun- tenance, and ready wit, cheering those about him and forever making himself a living sun that shines through any amount of grey skies. Out in Boise, Idaho, where the sun shines three hundred and sixty days of the year, " Pooch " absorbed this heavenly gift, and four years of Severn ' s fog and rain have failed to dampen it a bit. Such a radiant personality could not help bringing all those with whom he comes in contact within his fold of friend- ship. To know him is to love him, as his host of friends stand witness. Such a gift of God was not to be restricted to men alone and more than one woman has fallen for his charms. But his head is not to be turned by such a frailty as Woman. However, he seems to sum it up in the saying: " Out upon it, I have loved three whole davs together! And am like to love three more, if it prove fair weather.

As young Lochinvar came out of the West, so came Dusty, al- though not for the same reason. For two long years he was blind to feminine charm, and our hops had to struggle along without him. The beginning of Second Class year, however, was the end of Dusty ' s career as a " red mike, " and there began a marked in- crease in the consumption of " foo-foo. " If a man may be judged by the sports he goes out for, it would seem that Dusty is a warlike character. Football, water-polo, and lacrosse are sports for those who have a love for battle in its elementary forms. This belligerent tendency, however, he confined to the football field, pool and lacrosse field; in his room he is a lover of peace and quiet, and spends hour upon hour listening to the Prelude in G Minor. " Dusty " came to the Academy with the vision of naval aviation in his mind, but Fate has decreed against him in the matter of eyesight. So " Dusty ' s " visions now are of construction, and he hopes to build bigger and better airplanes to aid his flying classmates in their mission in the Service. JAMES DONALD LIVINGSTON GRANT " Don " " General " New York, N. Y. DON was born in Florida, raised in Richmond, and finished in New York. He divided his time between fenc- ing and the fair sex and with both he has an enviable reputation. At the beginning of plebe year he went out for fencing and the determination and faithfulness with which he stuck to it can be perceived in the form of that -N- star he proudly possesses. On the other subject he could probably be per- sonally consulted to better advantage, though, being a modest lad, it might be found some- what difficult. To the casual observer there is nothing startling about this young man ' s make-up except that he appears serious and is remark- ably lanky. The former might be mistaken for a certain strength of conviction arising from set ideas it is sometimes hard to dislodge. Behind that mask lies an enthusiasm and sense of humor that, frequently, requires a little throttline by some of his less fortunate neighbors. Also, it is quite apparent that joviality and a big heart can just as well repose within a thin frame as elsewhere. A personality that makes itself felt in his very agreeable manner makes this boy every inch a gentleman and a friend.

There was something distinctive about him. His purpose was enough like that of all other plebes but the seriousness with which he set about it was quite foreign to the rest. There has never been an idle moment in Milt ' s life since he became a midshipman. His time and talents are devoted particularly to boning, but he always finds time for box- ing and lacrosse. Though he has never at- tained the distinction of " savoir, " his class standing is above the general average. Milt ' s hard work has never prevented him from enjoying the lighter pleasures of life. His friendly disposition has made many friends for him in the regiment. Hops in Dahlgren Hall have many times been the scene of his triumphs with the weaker sex. Loyalty to his work and to his classmates has gained for Milt the respect and good wishes of all those who have had the fortune to know him. That one virtue explains the secret of his successful transition from civil- ian to officer in the Navy. HUGH TRENT MacKAY ' ' Hugh " " Mac " Lavcrenceburg, Kentucky COMING from the heart of the Bluegrass State Hugh decided that there ought to be an Admiral besides the original " Kentucky Admiral " ; so having obtained his appointment, he nonchalantly proceeded to the county post-office and passed the entrance exams with ease. Plebe year he missed starring by only a few numbers. Since then, although he has never reached that elusive 3.4, his industrious application has been the envy of his room- mates. Call to rooms usually finds Mac hard at work but studies never seem to interfere with his correspondence. He writes voluminously and the numerous tinted letters he receives prove that his time is not spent in vain. Hugh has missed every " Captain ' s Inspec- tion " for years in meeting all the celebrities that visit our institution. " This reception committee is great. Today I had dinner with Nick Altrock and Walter Johnson. " Mac meets them all and still finds time to swing a lacrosse stick in his spare hours for the glory of his class and company.

After graduating from High School he rested a year to recuperate from the severe strain and then decided that the Navy could stand improvement. To use his own words, " he left the best little town and girl in Texas in order to increase the naval efficiency of his country. " A little man of military mien with sharp eyes and dark hair he usually graces the stag line at hops ; for reasons above stated he seldom drags. We know him as the ratey but cautious plebe, the fiery-tongued youngster and second classman, and the first class in- structor of plebes. There ' s always a place for his subtle humor. Although he sports no block N, he has helped the righting fifth on several trying oc- casions. When other men are affected by the balmy spring air. you may find him battling on the lacrosse field for the dear old com- pany. His activities are not too confined to academics; he made the sub-squad (with much hard work). Four years a midshipman and nary an extra duty period. Politics? Well, maybe! He has manipulated the financial side of the Log in such a manner as to show that he possesses a capable business mind. JACK AGNEW " Jack " Bonham, Texas NO, folks, Jack is not one of these big he-men from Texas ' largest hamlet, Bonham, where it is further between houses than around the Horn. Finishing school with a fine record, Jack landed here at a very tender age. Fearing the lad would go astray, the famous four H ' s took him in tow. Under the guidance of this infamous quartet he safely passed through what is known in its mildest form as a real Plebe Year. Not even a hurricane could keep him from his habitual Sunday afternoon bridge game in Crabtown. Moreover not even a steam re- exam could keep him from finally filling that date with the O. A. O. at home. And what ' s more, not even the O. A. O. could keep him out of an argument. We, who have been shipmates with Jack, know that any time and on any question he will match his wits with the best. No cruise chow was complete without Jack ' s views on Power, Love and War. Although Jack might well take the part of the absent-minded professor, he never forgets to consider his friends. We all agree with the Bonham Daily Favorite when it said, " Jack is not only the type of fellow one w-ants for a nice friend, but also that type which will make the kind of Naval Officer of whom everyone, especially the people of Bonham, can be proud.

RED can hardly be rated anything bigger than a sand-blower, and he has the huge responsibility of guarding his flaming topknot, but notwithstanding all this, he is amply capable of much success. His elo- quent argumentation and his winning smile have baffled the " Ac " and " Exec " departments these four years. Red comes into his own on the cruise. He makes the most of every port, and as a companion on liberty he is without parallel. His success on those liberties is best evidenced by his large picture gallery and the abundance of fan mail that comes pouring in from both coasts. Red conscientiously believes that any good patriot will stick by his own podunk even though he has traveled around a lot. Woe to anyone who deigns to asperse his beloved Pittsburgh. This diminutive flame-headed fellow has a bright future ahead and we hope that he remains in the lifelong employ of Father Neptune. EDMUND SYLVESTER LEE MARSHALL " Tubby " " Eddie ' Los Angeles, California FROM Cuba to Michigan he wandered before he finally decided to give the Navy a break. He is one of those very proud individuals called " Native Sons! " When Tubby first saw our Naval Academy, he was coming from the service and had a bet- ter idea of what to expect than most of us. His aid to us Plebe Summer in the process of getting in step was invaluable. Although not an unusually diligent student, he always manages to keep up with the rest and often surges ahead for a brief time to show us that the ability is there. His deal- ings with athletics have been few since they interfered too much with his liberties. Always ready for a good time either on the cruise or in Crabtown, he helped us make something more of the four years besides an educational tour of duty at the Academy. When it came to dragging, Eddie took his place with the best of them. He has missed hops only when duty called him either for watch or some of our non-athletic squads.

If you don ' t believe it just consider the names he wears like a true dashing cavalier of the old South. Unfortunately Asthma has at the time we go to press no particular weaknesses upon which one who would immortalize him may harp. He will be remembered by his roommate as one who was foolishly fond of — nothing; by his classmates as one who entered with us and struggled through plebe year no less than the rest of us. To Bill Kirvan he will always be endeared as the proverbial side- kick and foil. To some of us he is famous as the man who takes Dago sections for a stroll about the yard on early mornings be- fore examination and to all. Asthma will always be — Asthma, who never had a sad moment in his life, — at least that he never was detected in pursuing. This perhaps ex- plains his ultra-nonchalant attitude toward the ladies, boning, greasing, and all such triviali- ties. JAMES STROUD CLARKSON " Chicken " " ]immy " Passaic, New Jersey PROUD resident of " Mosquito Country " and erstwhile advertiser of " Bennie Friedman, " and his illustrious tribe, Chick has acquired from his home environment the very essence of the strike spirit seemingly prev- alent in his native Passaic. His particular mystery is his unfailing fidelity to no less a master than Cupid. After a leave with his master this warm spot of fidelity burns still brilliantly. Boning troubled the boy little, or anything else for that matter. Discipline, neatness and precision came easy to him and were ac- cepted in a manner characterized by careless accomplishment. A big heart has most soundlv imprinted his memory in the affections of his many friends, especially so since we all must re- member love has left him but half a heart. Doubtless Jimmy never read Don Byrnne, ' out he is therefore no less, from every ap- pearance and manner, a disciple of " A clear conscience, a kindly heart, and a good punch in both hands.

Partly an adventurer, partly a dreamer, and yet one who dreams in terms of ac- complishments. Whenever we see a perfectly finished product we unconsciously look for the manufacturer ' s label. It would be difficult to find a manufacturer ' s stamp on Nels, but his whole attitude indelibly carries the mark of extensive early training in military schools. It seems D ' Arcy was always destined for one of the Service Schools. A polished manner, a perfect " Chesterfield- ian " nonchalance unruffled by any circum- st ances of fate. Why should mere man at- tempt to alter the course of mighty Destiny? Academics are nothing more than part of the daily routine — such importance they are ac- corded — never more. Why was it Nels was always in the first section in English while cobwebs sealed the covers of his book? The Viking type — blue eyes and blonde hair make feminine hearts flutter in his wake. Yet he is impervious to all of them save one. Vagrant charms batter in vain against the occupied fortress. FRANCIS MILLER CARTER " Nick " Centralia, Kansas ON a sunny day of June, 1926, our hero assaulted the works of the Naval Academy and joined the class of ' 30 for better or for worse. Visions of Far- ragut and Dewey have helped him to hold course and speed in the long grind and now, on the threshold of the domain of old Nep- tune himself, we find our Nick scarcely changed from the neophyte of four years ago. Nick has never exposed himself to the dan- gers of overexertion and fatigue in his studies and yet has managed to make grade easily, and he has emerged whole and hearty from the struggle to cross the endless series of " Rivers " which confronted us. Nick lives a life that many of us would do well to follow. Nothing bothers him a great deal, he always has a smile on his face, and readily sees something funny in almost any circumstances. " Nick " will always be a per- fect gentleman, courteous to the nth degree, and sincere in his cordiality. His friendship is invaluable to a chosen few who know him; and the joys of Graduation do not hide the fact, nor lighten the burden of the unavoidable parting of the ways.

They had just cause for their grief, for there are few men like Bill. It took him but a few days to get the dope Plebe summer, and then the fun began. He was always the guiding spirit in whatever the undertaking. Plebe year rigors held no fears for his blithesome temperament. Serious study came in for its proper share of attention and thoughtful cogitations. Ever happy in his quest for knowledge, he never let the academics worry him, so well was he prepared for them. Every man has some kind of hobby. Bill can sleep at any hour; in fact in this art he is unexcelled. The combination of playfellow and student is a blend producing a personality much sought after by all of society. Friends were Bill ' s for the asking. He is respected and admired by all whom he meets, and what is a better measure of success in life? FRANCIS STEPHEN STICH " Frank " Milwaukee, Wisconsin A TRIFLE late in entering, this curly haired representative of Wisconsin lost no time in acclaiming himself in his chosen career. With the advent of fall, his presence was more loudly proclaimed by his prowess on the gridiron. This line of en- deavor has accounted for a great deal of his time, and, though a trifle small, he has borne out the adage that " good things come in small packages " by his efforts on the " B " squad. However, football was not his sole effort. His versatility was demonstrated by the man- ner in which he filled the gap whenever the company needed a proponent of the manly art of self-defense, or a goal tender for the lacrosse team. As for his academic status, he has main- tained a respectable standing despite an ap- parent aversion to " boning. " In fact his at- titude toward " academics " approaches disdain. He has never permitted the texts to stand in the way of his correspondence, at which art he is a past master. However, that is only an indication of his mental powers, and he is never too engrossed to pause and propound the theory of E-IR. Endowed with a generous carefree nature and a liberal share of talent. Frank is bound to make a success of anything he undertakes.

Body and mind mutually cooperate to make him profi- cient in studies and athletics and give to him that indescribable nature which is conducive to happiness and inductive to friendships with all those who come within the radius of his smiles. He matriculated at Polytechnic High School of San Francisco and upon entering the Academy found himself at an advantage over his class mates in that he could count to twenty without taking both shoes off. His revolutionary nature is evident from the fact that for four years he tried to con- vince Naval architects that overheads should be at least seven feet above the deck, and he still believes that the Executive Department ' s practice of making midshipmen walk extra duty is not giving the girls of Annapolis the breaks to which they are entitled. His practical weakness is femmes, and many have been the times when we have had to listen to alluring tales of his prowess as a modern Lochinvar, sans mount. Even though in years to come we shall be separated by the service, more than once we will look back over treasured years together and feel proud that we have the privilege of calling " Mush " a friend.

The delight of the " femmes. " the envy of his classmates — yet, withal, having no self-conceit. Bob prepared for the Naval Academy at Narberth and Lower Merion high schools as well as Severn on the Severn. But the art of diligent study has never impressed itself on his mind. He relies on Lady Luck and she doesn ' t frown — what lady has the heart? Although he was class football captain in 1927 and cuts a mean caper on the baseball field. Bob confined his activities this last year to cheer leading. Without limit to ac- complishment. Bob has been — and will be — a leader in all. His success on the Ring Com- mittee is due in part to his succinct reca- pitulation of the ideas of sixteen feminine friends — all deeply interested. ( " For no good reason, " ) avers the O. A.

" He was born in Virginia, raised in Alabama, and now hails from the sleepy state of Mis- sissippi ; hence his nickname plus his superb powers of procrastination. Leaving a trail of broken hearts and broken noses throughout his grammar school and high school career, the inherent sea-going strain showed itself and Rebel took himself off to Australia in search of new fields to con- quer. Lucky Australia ! Next we find our hero blossoming forth as a midshipman at the Naval Academy. Many were the hearts that beat high in Annapolis and Eastport when " Gil Bias " stepped out. Studies hold no terrors for him, his chief occupation during study hours being letter writing. With his sunny disposition, crooked smile, and clever tongue he has many times turned dismal defeat into overwhelming vic- tory — both academically and socially. PETER ROBERT LACKNER " Pete ' Butte, Montana PETE started out to be a miner, but they both petered out. So when he heard rumors of the Naval Academy he broke his pick across his knee, blew out his lamp, packed up his other shirt along with the fam- ily zither, and climbed aboard the next east- bound stage. Little did he suspect in what good stead his experience at working in the dark would stand him. And that zither, — that Tea-wagon, gazinta, or whatever she was finally christened — what untold numbers of assistants she enthralled by her dulcet notes as they oozed shyly over the transom, when Pete was theoretically boning. Peter not only punished a mean gazinta but he also aspired to be a basketball star. He was cut out for bigger things. Second class year his meteoric rise in the sport was cut short by a long trip to the hospital. Yes, Peter got tired of being a baritone. And mail, — Pete was the mail king of 3136 for two years.

Byron was a quiet and unassuming lad when he changed allegiance from Georgia Tech to the Navy, but times have changed him and now he just thrives on girls from Washington, Baltimore, and Richmond. Not that B.B. is a lost and gone forever snake, but when the time for real dragging comes around you can always find Byron and he will have with him a " Bit of the Old South, ' ' and then you will realize that all the Southern Belles have not passed into the dim, dim long ago. Byron ' s chief ambition was to be a track and cross country star, but when they moved the harrier event up to five miles B.B. decided that there were many many easier ways and perhaps faster to navigate five miles. But rather than let the Radiator squad gain an- other member, B.B. joined the " Suicide Club " and played company water polo. Byron lias been waylaid a few times by the Steam Department and has spent many an afternoon in the Gym. but the fire of the South fitting well into " The Old Navy Spirit " did him good service and B.B. is the winner. The call of service is far-reaching and it did well when it saw the man it was to make out of the lad from Georgia Tech. WILLIAM BRIGHAM MOORE " Dinly " " Bill " Ogden, Utah ALTHOUGH Bill comes from Utah, he really hasn ' t a harem, and so far has evaded the snares of the Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia connoisseurs.

" Sec- ond class year Dinty kept himself out of trouble and, incidentally, made considerable for the opposition, as a tackle on the class football team, which had a perfect season in the Harvard Shield race. Exam week usually finds Bill boning Van- ity Fair or the American Mercury, but need- less to say he would have felt like a stranger out of the first section. His ambition is to be stationed on the West Coast, the coast of beautiful skylines, " Don ' t you leave me, Hughie! " But that ' s beyond the scope of this text.

None better suited than he, Chris first heeded the call in 1923, sailing with the United States Coast Guard, cruising 4,000 miles in Alaska, even to hundreds of miles above the Arctic Circle, where he found much exxiting duty as a radioman such as his handling of nine separate SOS signals. In 1925 he again offered his services as a Radio- man, this time to the Navy. In this service he received appointment to the Naval Academy, preparing in Puget Sound, standing lengthy Radio night watches and attending school during the day. This big Swede has never feared the wrath of Tecumseh, as is shown by his high class standing. Navy has a use for big men and Chris has a splendid physique. He became a Blue and Gold oarsman. Often have we seen him with a broken nose, a tooth missing, and once with a cracked cheek- bone from playing B squad football, lacrosse and such. And, too, the ladies are quite pleased with this modern DArtagnan, whose motto appears to be " all for one — the one being me. " Chris has all the requisites of a fine Naval Officer and has a true love for the service. With his keen and subtle humor he will pass happily over life ' s harder mo- ments. JOHN FRANCIS FLYNN " Jimmy " " Jack " " Lefty " Boston, Mass. MASSACHUSETTS lost a fine boy and the Naval Academy gained a real fighting Irishman when Jimmy de- cided to become one of us. With him he brought a will to win, and a heart of gold that will last in the memories of those whom he smiled upon; and many were those he smiled upon. Jack should make a wonderful diplomat, for in him we have found one who can play any musical instrument on earth, sing in his full tenor, and outwalk any person we have yet to meet. And yet at the same time he is so entertaining that not even the young ladies who have visited our grounds with awe have ever frowned on him. They have al- ways had a glad smile ready when Jack ap- peared, and the pretty part is that he never was aware that he was the cause of all the flutter. Jimmy is a Navy Junior and consequently the lot was his to travel considerably. Ma- nila to Boston found him taking his schooling all over the world. Handicapped in his studies as he was, he managed to launch a valiant attack that has qualified him as an energetic student pulling him " sat " eight consecutive terms. During his periods of en- lightenment he played a neat game of base- ball, a destructive game of water polo, and dipped many an erg rowing with the light- weight crews.

' ' Except when the Academics have pushed him for time, he has done his stuff on cinder path and board track, winter and spring — two seasons a year. We all thought we were going to lose Tom to the movies Plebe year when White ' s Studio hung out his photograph as an advertisement. Along with that, Toms constant source of mail, with which it has been impossible to compete, has demonstrated to us how atten- tion should be exacted from the feminine ele- ment. When Tom does things they are usually done well — one result of a noticeably strong will and determination. Nothing could more aptly characterize him than being a man con- vinced by his own convictions — to say that they can be relied upon would be redundant. Thus, as we have known him for four years, a true pal, always loyal to friendship and a real gentleman, no predictions for his future are necessary. HARRY WALLACE ENGLUND " Harry " " Whitey " Ashland, Wisconsin WITH the same spirit which urged on the Vikings from Greenland to the shores of Labrador, Harry came from the shores of Lake Superior to his New World with all the ardor and impetuosity of his Nordic ancestors. And like the Vikings, ravaging the Northern Seas, Harry attacked the many and varied activities of Midshipmen life and has achieved notable success. Academics found him among the savoirs and his voice found its place in the Glee Club and the Choir. As for athletics Harry gained fame by scoring the winning touch- down in a class championship game young- ster year. Since then he has joined the " B " squad and has traded bumps and bruises with all of them. Owing to an unfortunate circumstance in the matter of carrying out an old Navy Tradition. Harry spent his second class September Leave at the Academy. He was not to be denied his next leave, however, and long and furious was the struggle in the Gym until success gave him his goal. Harry has been noble in all his successes. May they continue onward in the Fleet, and our happy Norseman will go a long way in his chosen career.

Coming from the land of Peaches and Stone Mountains, " ' Mac " spoke a language that was quite unin- telligible as far north as Annapolis and fell prey to that sure test for a Rebel. He said " Po ' k Chops, " and so he is to this day. " Mac " has a weakness for playing jokes on his classmates, and if anyone receives a set of furniture or a bicycle on thirty days ' free trial he may guess who filled out the coupon and borrowed the stamp to send it. Red hair has its power, and the girls all the way from the " Yard " to far-off Georgia could have found their pictures pasted very neatly to the outside of Mac ' s waste basket. It was his special gallery and lucky was the girl to receive a place thereon. Probably this was the reason " Po ' k Chops " was such an apt student in Navigation. Mac never missed a stai and often steered a great circle course across the Armory after a new fix. Mac was also a coxswain in his heterogene- ous career; and night after night on the river, winter and spring, you could see the little redhead calling the stroke and holding tightly to the rudder, wondering just how far he was going to miss the bridge. So in the vears to come when you are on the China Station and someone mentions Georgia, and you thing of Tv Cobb and General Sherman, don ' t forget " Po ' k Chops " McClain. ROBERT SMITH TROWER, III " Bob " " Trou " Eastville, Virginia WHEN Bob, the third of his line, first ventured forth from the East- ern Shore, he had the wanderlust, as far as colleges were concerned ; so he tarried for various years at Hampden-Sidney and at the University of Virginia. Finally the call of the seas came to him, which re- sulted in a trip to Crabtown by way of Clai- bourne and a voyage on the " Emma Giles. " Plebe summer seamanship showed us what a life on Chesapeake Bay could do, and no one is better than Bob when it comes to handling half-raters and catboats. But that was not the most interesting part of Plebe year for Bob. Academics were his line, and there he held a record. At one time, Bob was starring and yet unsat in two subjects. He finally man- aged to pull the two ends together, and from then on remained high up on the safe side. Life was just one grand good time for " Trou. " It mattered little to him to have a juice, Nav and Math " P " work on the same day. The fact that the uniform is " rain- clothes, " or that he is on the " PaP " doesn ' t bother him. He goes on the same old way and is never worried unless the price of potatoes on the Eastern Shore drops, or the Claibourne ferry comes in late on a leave day. Company lacrosse and bowling are his fa- vorite diversions, but he is not averse to cooling off the radiator with the rest of the Club, if there is anything to be discussed which concerns the Eastern Shore. 150 lb.

Page One Hundred Ninety-fire JAMES WILLIAM RODGERS " Jimmy " Denver, Colorado THE fire and enthusiasm from the moun- tains of West Virginia, the grace and courtesy of the Blue Grass state, and finally the genial good humor of the West, have all had their part in the making of Jimmy Rodgers. A fine-faced fluffy-haired chap, with a smile and a disposition that are almost contagious. A " Savoir among Savoirs, " though Jimmy will tell you that he doesn ' t like to work and on leave you will believe him, so grace- fully does he take his leisure. But when the time for work comes he is there everlastingly at it, and the first section was rarely without him. His hobbies are literature and reading, and if you don ' t believe that pays you ought to hear what the girls have to say about Jimmy ' s line! He is not immune, himself, to the gentler sex, and when the " Navy Juniors " get together, if you listen closely, you can hear the name of Jimmy, interspersed, with alarming frequency. As far back as Jimmy can remember he has been running the dashes, breaking records, and collecting medals. And still the ever-elusive pursuit of time has gone on, notwithstanding numerous injuries and setbacks; and fall, win- ter and spring Jimmy was always there, burn- ing up the cinders. EDWARD CLARK RENFRO " Eddie " Brighton, Colorado " TTS all in the state of mind, wife, we I can do it. " A cheerful, helpful thought from the chap who greets you from the picture above. So it has been through the months of plugging that have passed. Lots of things have happened to this boy in addition to the routine matters that fall to the lot of all midshipmen. Now and then he has had a warm tilt with the Executive Department but has always been victorious. The girls have tripped him up a bit here and there, but they have always parted, friends. No doubt, though, he will find that ideal some day. Naval Academy life has been hard for Eddie for one reason: he has never accepted the easy path but has insisted on battling his way along the rough road. This spirit he has evidenced in his work in the classroom, his play on the football field, and in the ring. As a result he has built character that will ride the rough waters of the service without shipping a drop. Along with this strength of character, Eddie has his lighter side and if one can get him engaged in a bit of conversation during an odd moment, you are liable to learn much of quaint humor, philosophy, and sound judg- ment. And, too, Eddie will add to that store of knowledge in his travels and some day, some- where, we will clasp the hand of a battle- scarred Marine and see again the warrior.

P.me One Hundred Ninety-six ► ROBERT RUTHERFORD CRAIGHILL " Bob " Washington, D. C. TWENTY odd years ago the smoke of Pittsburgh cleared away long enough to allow another future Navy man to gaze upon the sun. What Pittsburgh lost Washington gained, and from that renowned city we received into our fold one of our most amiable classmates. He has continued his search for knowl- edge with unfailing vigor even though at times forced to sidestep barriers imposed by mental requirements. Nothing can keep him from athletics. First wrestling claimed his attention, and then with the advent of spring he is always to be found on the cinder path. Though he has never been a scintillating star, his indomitable will carries him on in a search for new laurels. There is none among us who has not thrilled to the music of his voice, for Bob ' s solos have been a feature of an already beautiful Chapel service. And one can see the drags with their heads together asking, " Who is that good-look- ing boy with the beautiful waves and the marvelous voice? " We have no fear for Bob ' s future career, as his true loyalty to the service and his unselfishness mark him to us as a loved friend whom we all trust and admire. Lucky are those who honor him as a friend, because as years pass he remains the same unforgettable companion. BERNHARDT ALOIS FUETSCH " Benny " " Confucius " Tonopah, Nevada HE hails from the land of the Sierras where men are men, and women don ' t matter. His career, pre-Naval, was most varied, and defies all descriptive powers. Plebe year resulted in the nickname " Con- fucius, " for he is wise beyond his years. A quick, clear mind is his. He is generous almost to a fault, and is most popular wher- ever he strays. The femmes have languished many a lingering glance in his vicinity, but thus far but one has the distinction of being in his thoughts. The Academics Departments have never suc- ceeded in causing this bright boy any lost sleep, but once or twice the more efficient D.O. ' s have placed their banana peels to good, or bad, effect. His main interest in life is aviation, and we look to see his non- pronounceable name blazoned in headlines more than once for intelligentsia and illiterate alike to stumble over. He is a ham-an ' -egger of no mean ability, but an injury to his knee, plebe year, has con- fined him to being a bulwark of defense on the class teams year after year. Faults he has, but the beauty of Benny ' s character is that he knows each and every one, and keeps them submerged.

DEALEY " Tex " " Sam " " Texas " Dallas, Texas A BATTLESHIP has never dropped an- chor at Dallas, Texas, but some day, Sam " swears, he is going to pilot one right up to the Mayor ' s front door; and he ' ll do it, too, if he figures it is a good advertising stunt. The Rio Grande is more Rio and less Grand since " Tex " betook his famous smile from yon to hither, and the Navy is richer by a never-failing sense of humor and a person- ality never learned in books. Not that life has been just one long grin, for the Academics have ever been rather close behind ; but it ' s when the worries are worst that his smile is broadest, — and you can ' t beat a man like that. Struggles with the Academics only increased that determination to make a monkey out of the apparently insurmountable walls blocking the way to graduation. His determination has been deepened and increased by that sense of responsibility one always assumes with the planting of a miniature. Yes — his most note- worthy successes have been with rings, — ■ success in the boxing ring and success with an engagement ring. As an organizer of parties, real parties, " Tex " is hard to beat. His potent line serves as the key to open all the doors from the jail on up to the Executive Mansion. Con- scientious enough to please the most exacting, he is broadminded enough to see all angles of every question. WILLIAM McCLURE DRANE " Spuds " " Bill " Clarksville, Tennessee " T WANNA be in Tennessee in my Dixie | paradise. " Yes, " Spuds " is a represen- tative of the Southland and, with par- donable pride, he glories in his own birth- right and sympathizes with all those unfor- tunates who were not born South of the Mason-Dixon line. His career in the Navy was begun with bachelor inclinations, but blonde hair and blue eyes could not be denied, and it was not long before he was frequently seen with " the sweethearts on parade, " — that is, one sweet- heart at a time. Spuds has the unusual gift of reticence, and this combined with a happy disposition always makes us glad of companionship. Always ready to lend a helping hand, he is the kind of a man who would give up his only " holy stone " during a Youngster cruise " field day. " He has always measured up to a man ' s stand- ard and we who are his intimate friends know ourselves to be fortunate. And here you have " Spuds " ; nautical but nice. Every indication that we have ever received of " Spuds " has but proven that the courteous, helpful, fun-loving boy has been and will always be a true and trustworthy friend. And as the Fleet adds a true Southern gentleman, of whom she may well be proud, Tennessee adds another name to her list of illustrious sons. Class Boxing 2, 1 ; Class Track 4 : 2 P. O. 2 P. O.

' ' The important event took place in that mountainous and wooded locality commonly referred to as Tennessee, and ever since that memorable happening " Red ' ' has been proud to admit that he is a son of the Southland. Sometime in every man ' s life he hears the call of adventure. " Red " answered and joined this happy little nautical organization — to see the world. To quote from his own Tennessee vernacular. " I was tired of the permanent waves, and wanted to see what the tidal waves were like. " Yet even within " the walled city on the Severn " he could not escape, for he still has a slight tendency to consider the " fair sex " fair and just can ' t resist telling them so. Red ' s only great displeasure while at Uncle Sam ' s school for boys was his difficulty in " parlezvouin ' that darn Spanish " and yet he was always at the top of his class in en- gineering, which all goes to show that you can ' t fool all of the profs all of the time. Some ship in the fleet will receive an officer whose quality of leadership is combined with earnestness and a kindly understanding of others. NICHOLAS ADAIR LIDSTONE " Nix " Bellingham, Washington MAYBE it was the lure of adventure that called this hardy sailor into the service. Who knows? At the age of sixteen Nix had explored our own great Northwest and had roamed the great icy wastes of Alaska. New fields always beckon and after a short and varied career, snowshoes and even bankledgers were laid aside, and a journey through the academic jungle of the Naval Academy began. Plebe year (number one) was marked by a brilliant display of interest, but a long stay in the hospital retarded the acceleration. The next year found Nix still a plebe and since that time the Academic Departments have set many an obstacle in the path of our gallant conqueror. But the wily Nix laughs, for a 2.495 is sat. A 4.0 drag or four fast rounds in the ring can fill any week-end and Nix is quite adept at either kind of sport. A lively sense of humor, a quick wit and a versatile nature all make him a most valuable roommate and always one of the party. The ways of the service may separate us, but when the re- unions occur there will be many a happy old time to talk over. Class Rifle 3 ; Class Bowling 4, 3, 2, 1 , 2 P. O. Class Boxing 4, 3 ; 145-lb.

It must have been a strong call for scholarships and other equally at- tractive propositions went by the board when he chose the Navy. From the top of his curly black head to the tip of his sturdy Dutch legs, he is calculated to set the feminine heart a-flutter. Those eyes are green, and that curl is natural, and that mouth is capable of a line that could well be made a part of the academic course. An India-rubber heart has so far kept him im- mune, but every year it threatens to lose its power of absorption. A savviness in his studies, coupled with a fund of good common horse sense, has made him a star man academically. His good nature and remarkably pleasant personality have set him among those few who are uni- versally liked and respected wherever they happen to be. A sense of humor and a knowledge of the completeness of things have made him a classmate worthy of the name. They that stand high have many adversi- ties to shake them, but Pablo, we prophesy, will profit bv every buffet, and rise to the heights he deserves, for he is one of the few who can laugh at adversity. GLEN GALLOWAY HERNDON " don Simon " Norwood, Colorado NORWOOD sent the gallant Glen as its bid to fame, and, as events have proved, Norwood chose well. " Savvy, " enough to seriously consider the Construction Corps, he has yet retained that spirit of nonchalance which lends him all the characteristic of the hail-fellow-well-met that distinguishes the interesting from the over- studious. Glen is the type that one would expect to enter such a field as aviation but yet again, it would not be hard to visualize Glen as he cannily outplays the enemy fleet in a game of war. Steadiness, in its most favorable aspect, is embodied in " don Simon. " Plebe and Youngster years this virtue led him on to the heights, but second class year and a slip of the tongue proved to us after all that he is human. Rarely a week-end but what he can be seen on his way to Carvel to meet the sender of pink stationery. As has been said before he is steady and, oh, how dependable! Here ' s to you. Glen ! May you stand as high in your chosen field as you have in the esteem of those who have known you at the academy.

Page Two Hundred JOHN MILES LEWIS " Jim " " Jack " " Red " San Diego, California IN 1926 there was graduated from San Diego High School a tall, handsome lad destined soon to become one of the pam- pered pets and future admirals of Uncle Sam. Jack ' s entrance into the Naval Academy is not the result of a chance decision. All his life he had cherished a desire to join the serv- ice to which his father had dedicated his own life. It must have been the call of the sea in his blood. His activities since coming to the Academy have been widely varied. His chief interest has centered on track, his favorite event being the javelin. During the winter months he was the fighting manager of Thirty ' s cham- pionship boxing team, himself fighting in the middleweight class and winning the Regi- mental championship three years straight. However, his proficiency in athletics is not the extent of his accomplishments. His clarinet is one of the mainstays in the orchestra. And not the least of his talents is his attraction for the weaker sex, due, without doubt, to his auburn locks and winning smile. His manner is always cheerful, and he is equally strong in his likes and dislikes. Ready and eager to do a favor for a friend, if it takes his last cent, Jack will no doubt realize his ambition to make good in the service; at any rate we could wish him no greater success than that he become as fine an officer as he has been a friend. LAFAYETTE JACKSON JONES " Jack " " John Paul " Orlinda, Tennessee ONLY one in six hundred upon entering with the Class of 1930, but in his four years at the Academy Jack has un- obtrusively become a true friend in the hearts of all his classmates. Quiet is the word — ■ two words are never used where one will suffice; but like most men of that type, when he does speak something worth while is said. Academics don ' t bother him, and he sails serenely on with little worry and a respect- able standing. Tennessee produces the boys who can ' t see the use of hurrying. His usual condition at formation is a state of decided " negligee " ; but he ' ll get there in time, don ' t worry, with plenty to spare. His principal concern is whether or not the mail deliveries will bring him his just reward. Music is in his soul and a perfect dance number is a tonic to his already peace- ful nerves. Because of this, a new saxophone made its appearance during his second class year, resulting in the formation of sounds of a unique and altogether new type. Smoke Hall holds a strong attraction for him, and the billiard balls daily perform strange gyra- tions under the magic of his cue. Cruise adventures; " beaucoup " femmes; life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; the give and take of Naval life, — sure he ' s had it all. A man, a real friend, and one always to be remembered with genuine pleas- ure as a " wife " through four years of thick and thin. We hope to be with you in the Fleet, Jack.

Back in his pre-Navy days Brownie led a varied life. He was printer ' s devil, linorype operator, rider in a National Guard Cavalry unit, and navigator to a big black motor. And now, can you believe it, he has answered the call of the running tide! Oscar is not interested in escorting to hops, blind or otherwise. At times, classmates in distress have not been quite fair with him, but he is, nevertheless, a spare member of the Hop Committee, and he rather likes that sword belt. God gave him hair with a wave, and a face with a smile, and that makes for a sweet innocent look. Appearances are de- ceiving, however. He always showed up after the Thanksgiving games on time, but with a good story to tell about it all. Brownie is a star man, regulation, depend- able, good-natured, a true pal, and he will go through life surrounded by a host of friends. DONALD WESLEY GLADNEY, JR. " Don " Lewisville, Arkansas A DEBONAIR young man sought a naval career and came to the Navy just in time to be one of those who became ' 30. He has shown himself to be a savoir who raised the scholastic average of the class and who took part in athletics and other activities and could still find time to help the less brilliant in their struggles. He is unselfish and tolerant by nature and hospitable in a true Southern way. As an upperclassman he has always been a friend of rhe plebe and the youngster, and has helped many of them over the difficulties of first experience. However, even as every great man has his faults, he is a snake of the first rank, smashing hearts in a gay and carefree manner. But what heart has not thrilled at the sight of a tall, handsome man with brass buttons? That is Don.

He came to the Academy with a happy smile and an innocent boyish look that soon won him many friends. Appearances are deceiving, however, and those who know him best often wonder how he maintains that innocent look. Jimmy ' s Saturday afternoons are spent in one of two ways. Occasionally he drags. If not dragging he is found in his room boning Cosmo or educating plebes. The latter pas- time has been a religion with him since he returned from youngster Sept. leave with that one diag. However, he never lets it interfere with academics. The word " savvy " as applied to Jimmy would be a misnomer, although he has little standing in the first half of the class. Ath- letics have a great attraction for him and he is one of the most ardent supporters of Navy teams. His own activities along this line are confined to cross-country and track. In the former sport he was a member of the class championship team of 1928. KLEBER SANLIN MASTERSON " Chief " " Hawkeye " Farmington, New Mexico " HIEF " was another one of those boys I of the spacious West who had the - urge to follow the sea. A year at the University of New Mexico failed to change his mind and the Naval Academy was his next stop — ' 30 had claimed him as its own. With the exception of a few lapses, the desire in him has never weakened. " Savvy " and studious — always free from academic worries, — he turns his spare mo- ments to lighter subjects. As a result the Log has often been the recipient of his treasured verses. In athletics he has tried football, cross-country, wrestling, soccer, and track but only in wrestling has he specialized. Since Youngster year he has been one of the mainstays on Navy ' s wrestling squad, and Second Class Year he won the coveted " N. " Girls have only a passing interest to him, but he has been known to weaken. Prob- ably the fair ones met on the cruise will vouch for that. Yet, he still maintains that he is a " Red Mike. " Be that as it may, sometimes, somewhere, and somehow, he will find a good reason to cease being among the list of bachelors.

An article in the Country Gentleman stating that the new battleships were to use oil in- stead of coal brought Elly to the decision to leave the region of coal and take up an occupation that had nothing to do with it. Graduating from Johnstown High and com- pleting a year of preparatory work, he en- tered that famous portal, gate No. 3, U. S. Naval Academy. The elusive two-five kept Smut at the old books for the first two years, but finally he obtained the upper hand and since then has been spending off moments in playing foot- ball and baseball. He is not only known by all but universally liked for his congenial disposition and pleas- ant manner. He was taught the Golden Rule while attending Sunday school in Johnstown and never once has he forgotten it during his caieer. On some past day Elly much have sipped deeply from the happy spring of optimism. His confidence attracts, his good humor is proverbial and wherever he is there must cer- tainly be joviality and the snappy interesting • hatter that is Elly ' s. WILLIAM WHEELER GUBBINS " Bill " " Gubbf " Gub " Chicago, Illinois WILLIAM heard the call of the sea, passed a few exams, broke sundry hearts, bid several adieus and de- parted for the Severn. Although he very nearly became a Kaydet, from the time he invested in two laundry bags of gear he has been a true Navy man. Gubby is quite an athlete. Every fall he stars as a halfback on the soccer team. Every winter he has splashed all over the pool as a charter member of the sub-squad. Every spring he is the main backstop of the base- ball team. Rumors from Chicago whisper he was quite a grid star. Since he has been wearing blue, however, he has devoted the fall to soccer. Although far from being backward or shy on an athletic field, Bill demonstrates pitifully little aggressiveness in Dahlgren Hall on hop nights. In fact he appears to be a confirmed Red Mike. On rare occasions he drags the lady of his choice — or someone else ' s. In the Hall, Bill is conspicuous for his subtle wit and apt smiles. Wherever he is. there are sure to be smiles. We feel that he has many happy and successful years before him. His ambition is to get over to Cork to see the folks. I wish I was in charge of the room so I could clean the basin.

Born and reared on the Atlantic Coast in a city which carries the name of one of our greatest Admirals, it was only proper that he should choose a naval career. Gif arrived too late to enjoy Plebe summer with us, but in spite of this great handi- cap he soon won a place in our hearts. Al- ways willing to lend a helping hand, he is a man who thrives on hard work. All summer long Gif is out on Lawrence Field, keeping the Navy pitchers in shape, and any of the ballplayers will tell you that no- body can do it quite as well. In addition we will find him every fall plugging up a big hole on the class football team. They don ' t make exams hard enough to worry this mosquito trainer, but the word " sub-squad " is enough to bring perspiration to his brow. The future can hold naught but success for Gif. and we are sure that all those who come in contact with him will learn of his many good qualities and appreciate him as we do. LYLE LAWRENCE KOEPKE ' Lizzel " " Bill " " Keep " " Louie " Flint, Michigan HERE we have a true Michigan son and even though he is just a little fellow, about five feet minus, he ' s every inch a man. If you don ' t believe it ask the girls. After a most non-eventful life back in Flint, Lizzel decided the Navy needed a good man. So after attending prep school for a year he became a full-fledged Middie. And now don ' t you remember some of those football games last fall and a stocky, tough-looking little flash running around out there all over the field doing a day ' s work in two hours? Well, that was our Lizzel and none other than the captain of the team and a harder fighter or a better leader couldn ' t be found anywhere. But footba ll doesn ' t take all of Lizzel ' s time. During the winter he does a little " suiciding " with the water poloists and even takes a chance on lacrosse, and he ' s no slouch at either one. Though not a " savoir " he always man- ages to draw a luck slip and believes firmly that velvet is no good unless you spend it. Because of his good nature, pleasant man- ner, willingness to help, sportsmanship and never-say-die spirit, Lizzel has made innumer- able friends who all wish him the very best of luck in his future career.

His boyhood days near the ocean did not lessen that attraction, and the result is that Whitey has turned to the sea for his life ' s work. Severn school prepared him for his debut into the ranks of the mariners, and he came to the Naval Academy with an engag- ing manner that soon won him many friends. Plebe year turned out to be a struggle for his unusually carefree nature. When he was not disturbed by the ever-present upper class- men, the Dago department was sure to take its toll of grief. But he weathered the stormy trials of that year successfully and has had easy sailing the rest of the time. Since the days of his high school triumphs at the game, lacrosse has held a gripping in- terest for Whitey. On the football field, too, he felt at home, and was quarterback of the class championship team in twenty-eight. The air service has been a deep-rooted am- bition of his since his first day as a Plebe. That goal once gained, Whitey will feel that life, after all, is worth living.

CLYDE BENJAMIN STEVENS " Benny " " Steve " " Lefty " Denver, Colorado STEVE began his military career at Went- worth and was so pleased with the ex- perience that he returned for a second year. However, after two years of such life it was natural that he should want a rest; so he enrolled at Severn and started in pursuit of the epaulets. While at Severn, he acquired a love for the water and spent many hours sailing canoes — with more or less success. Academics have never given Steve any wor- ries because of his thorough manner of attack- ing problems. Some may say his success is due to his super-diplomacy whether in affairs of the heart or convincing profs that he rates a 3.0. Steve has given the athletic and non-ath- letic activities his whole-hearted support. He started his Plebe year on the Reef Points Committee and has gradually worked up to the Lucky Bag. He has been a pal and a classmate for four long years and our loss is the Service ' s gain. A true friend and companion and an officer and gentleman above average, we hate to see him go; but long absences will be for- gotten when we meet in the Fleet.

A little Napo- leon within our midst! Right there with the goods at the last minute ! Whenever there is an argument Bowen is in the midst with that pleasing Southern drawl which actuates pleasant response to his smooth and soft statements. As Bryan swayed the multitudes with his silver-tongued oratory, Mac has captivated the interest and loyalty of the weaker sex by a pleasing application of this great politician ' s tactics of persuasion. Mac ' s carefree nature never allowed the academics to give him any worry, and al- though quite far from savvy, whenever the end came there was no need for anxiety on his part. A good man with confidence in his ability to make good, Mac should make a good officer. MELL ANDREW PETERSON " Mell " " Pete " " M. A. " Algona, Iowa PETE came to us from Algona High with a record both in academics and in ath- letics. While stopping over here at the Naval Academy his favorite pastime has been the light and delicate game of football. In la- crosse, too, he has been quite successful. He always carries a smile, and often kindly sings or whistles, in order that his roommates can concentrate better. He is unaccustomed to publicity and still carries the scar from hitting one math tree. Some whisper that he carries a bayonet under his blouse at the hops, for self-protec- tion. Maybe — but it ' s not on record that he ever had to use it. Whenever anyone needs help in any of its forms Mell is the boy. He had made many friends both in and out of the Service during his stay at the Academy and will continue to do so wherever the fortunes of the Little Blue Suit may take him.

Indiana AWAY back yonder, " Walt " spent some time in college and then started out to see the world, tooting a clarinet along the way ; but between blows he heard Uncle Sam ' s call, and answered without hesitation. At his first infantry drill during Plebe sum- mer, Walt discovered that he wasn ' t much taller than his rifle, and so in order to let the Navy know he was around he grew about a foot. Having fallen off the seawall and out of a cutter several times in less than a month, he was as salty as the ancient mariner. Versatility should be Walt ' s middle name. When occasion demands he knows how to bone, but often he shows that he lacks none of the fine points of that well-known art of sleeping, which is perhaps his favorite pas- time. Playing basketball comes just as naturally to the " Fox " as eating and at either diversion he is seldom equaled. He is al- ways ready to fill in a hand at bridge or pinochle, and when he opens up on a clari- net all the phonographs in the hall turn green with envy. " Walt " has always had the good trait of being fast but thorough in all his undertak- ings. He usually left exams early to get back to his mail, but thanks to speed, dash and accuracy he invariably gave the Academic de- partments sound drubbings. JAMES WIGGINS COE " Jim " ■ " Wiggle " " Co Co " Richmond. Indiana STRONG drafts of salty air were not Jim ' s incentive to become one of Uncle Sam ' s pampered pets. He was given two weeks ' notice, and then found himself undeniably on the banks of the Severn. He pulled himself together, saluted, the Jimmy-Legs, and walked in to stake his claim. Jim aspires to be the boy aviator of Rich- mond. His weird imitations of a wing-over, zoom, and a loop in succession as displayed on the diving board should be good practice for his future career. He takes off best when he runs the high hurdles for the track team. Youngster year he made a couple of Army men look like ground school students. Red is usually the head man of any show worth while. His renditions on the fife are unsuppressed emotion. We believe he left a good carnival job to join the Navy. When- ever a good laugh is needed to cheer things up, Red is the doctor. Jim possesses all of the good nature, com- patibility and common sense that make friends with both sexes. He has managed well because he has always been on the safe side of women and academics.

We are al- ways greeted with, " Where did you hide it? This was her day to write. " Nate is by no means a Red Mike. The rapidity with which he falls in love with the attractive members of the fair sex is inspiring to behold. Second class cruise left him with a heart beating as fast as the second hand of an Ingersoll. Athletics are an important part of his life. With the true sportsman ' s spirit he goes ou t and gives his best, and if he is not playing with the team on Saturday he is certain to be found among the most interested spectators. Football, tennis and fencing are his favorite pastimes. The difficulty of obtaining the coveted 2.5 only bothered him once during his career and he is still looking for a good opportunity to blow up Isherwood Hall. Nate has no trouble making friends and we know that any Junior Officer ' s mess will be glad to welcome him as a shipmate. ALBERT PIKE DOUGLASS " Pike " " Doug " Mobile, Indiana " A TRl TRUE Gentleman in every sense of he word. " Pike is the type that we read about in pre-Civil War days. We can imagine him as a Southern Cavalier, high strung and high spirited, equally at home in the drawing-room of his family plantation house, or astride a pony dashing madly down the turnpike to clear some affairs of honor. For four years, Pike has been teaching us Yankee boys what is meant by Southern Honor, how a Rebel takes his leisure and how a Southerner plays poker. And great have been the lessons learned therefrom. Pike is a fellow it is a pleasure to know, both from a masculine and feminine standpoint. Pike ' s greatest attribute is a fighting heart, for, no matter how dark the outlook or how discouraging the task, we have never known him to fail. He seems to have one of those elastic chins that rebound every time he " takes a heavy one " there, and it is our firm opinion that wherever he may be you can always expect great things from him.

And while at Crab- town he has had ups and downs, Bunker has never lost for an instant his smiling seren- ity. Two years as a civil engineer at the Uni- versity of Arkansas soon proved their worth, and the larger part of the Academic depart- ments were baffled at every turn as a result. With Dago it has been a different story, but here Ready proved again his worth by re- peatedly besting them at their own game. Possessed of a quiet but richly abundant sense of humor an d equipped with a person- ality which, while not of the loud talking type, is easily detected and a never-ending source of enjoyment to all who know him, Bunkie is admirably endowed with all the tequisites of a model shipmate. His habit of never worrying is contagious and conduc- ive to a happy ship spirit wherever he hap- pens to be. A man of simple tastes and an ideal philos- ophy. Bunker is certain to find life ' s trails much to his liking and should travel them far. May his path often cross with those with whom he has lived, for then their paths will win more clear. WILLIAM FRANCIS EPPERLY " Ep " " Perly " " Bill " Floyd, Virginia FOR this son of the South we are in- debted to the mountains of Virginia and in him we have gained an unsur- passed friend. His nature and disposition are generous; he will share his last crust with a friend — (he doesn ' t like crust!) Although Bill was not an outstanding var- sity athlete his services were in great demand for the company teams. And on one oc- casion he showed his ability as a runner by beating out the D.O. by a fair margin. But since then Bill has improved considerably in the art of evading the D.O., though he still admits that they are rather fast company. After a desperate struggle with " skinny " during Plebe year, Bill managed to pull him- self well up into the first half of the class. And it is partially through his efforts that some of the wooden men in the class managed to make the required two-five. As a navigator Bill ranks among the best, but since he is transferring to the Marine Corps, his knowl- edge of navigation will be of little value be- cause mul es and ships are not navigated in the same manner. In Bill we all recognize one of the straight- forward, manly ones, and we are proud to call him classmate, shipmate and friend. 2 P. O. 1 P. O. Page Tiro Hunched Ten ROLAND CLIFFORD LAWVER " Chick " " Cliff ' Freeport, Illinois ALTHOUGH this guileless lad was born in the little suburban town of Free- port, he claims the world as his home, for he is a true cosmopolite. The early part of his life was spent acquiring the rudiments of an education in the local High School. While still an urchin he chaperoned a train- load of hogs to the stockyards of the tiny hamlet of Chicago. On observing the won- ders of this gigantic city there grew up a desire to travel and view the world. He navigated the Western hemisphere before en- tering the Naval Academy, and probably some morning Old Sol will rise to find Chick still serving on board one of Uncle Sam ' s ships in the Asiatics. Being of a well-balanced disposition, Chick has enjoyed the varied phases of life as a midshipman, and has gotten the most out of his four years as a " pampered pet. " Never caring much for athletics, he has spent most of his time with the Masqueraders, Radio Club, and such activities, where his success has been remarkable. It is with regret that we part company with him and it is our hope that we may be shipmates with him again in the future. Faults? — Sure, lots of them, but none that we can recall now. Just a little man in a big coat, but a great fellow after all. FRED DALE BEANS ' Navy " " Beans " " Beano " Clebourne, Texas HERE is a unique name and a character to match. As good hearted as man ever comes, a classmate tried and true, with a motto that you can do anything that you want to if you only want to enough, this man is master of his own destiny. Plebe varsity football and football N ' s three upperclass years would seem to prove the worth of his motto, and a measure of his ability, when we realize that Beans came to the Academy with- out any previous football experience. Boxing and lacrosse also found in him a very versatile man; and academically he stood among the first members of his class. Ultra-modern in ideas but a poet at heart, he seeks the ideal in life. If it be one of the fairer sex that strikes his fancy of the mo- ment, she is quickly cloth ed with dreams of the ideal. So far they have merely been will- o-wisps, who pass again into dreamland, but we feel sure that perhaps in the future some lucky person will remain the ideal that he makes of her. Those who know " Navy " and have him for a friend ask for no truer or better. Posses- sing the ability for making and keeping the friendship of those with whom he comes in contact, be it once or for every day. " Navy " can already count a large circle of friends at the Academy and in the service; and we feel sure that this circle will be ever increasing.

IKige Tito Hundred Eleven WILLIAM ROBERT SHEELEY " Bill " " Colonel " Chaplin, Kentucky IT was not until his Freshman year at the University of Kentucky that the Colo- nel first heard that faint far-away call of the sea. He pricked up his ears, lowered his pedal extremities, pushed his mint julep glass from him and forthwith bent his steps towards Marion Institute, in quest of that knowledge so essential to the embryo mid- shipman. In the early summer of 1926 we again see the Colonel giving up the comforts of his blue-grass home for the trials and hardships of a naval career. During Youngster year, Bill gave us the first hints of his poetical aims and soon afterwards the " Log " and " Trident " clamored for his services. His literary ability won him a responsible posi- tion on the staff of the Lucky Bag. The Colonel, despite his versatility and consequent activity, has, nevertheless, always been a stanch supporter of the " meditation movement. " Night after night, he would spend his study hour in deep meditation, his head thrown back on his pillow, and his eyes closed. In our everyday contact with the Colonel, we have learned from him the noblest char- acteristics of a true Southern gentleman. His is a personality not soon forgotten. " Well, now I ' ll just bercha. " EDWARD ALEXANDER MONTGOMERY " Monty " " Ed " Augusta, Georgia BORN in sunny Georgia, and reared ' midst her cottonfields and peach trees, Monty spent his early days basking ' neath a Southern sun or being lulled to sleep by the crooning song of a negro mammy. Perhaps in those dreamy days he was first struck by the romance of the sea and a picturesque military life. Regardless of what guided him, the South- land and the days of his youth have never quite been forgotten, for he always sleeps on the slightest pretext, and neither high water nor all the steam profs have ever prevented him from making his regular leave. Those days have also left an indelible stamp upon him, in that the sunshine which tanned his face and filled his soul with radiance gave him the finer instincts which make a gentle- man. As classmates, we have been with him through experiences which have developed the closest intimacy. We have smoked with him on the fantail when the cares of the day were over; we have worked with him in the burning heart of the firerooms; we have been with him in strange places and among strange people, and have learned to love his perfect deport- ment, his ready wit, his loval and unselfish nature. His is the kind o f friendship that would deny self for classmates. Cross Country 4 ; Numerals ; Trident Business Manager; Lucky Bag Staff ; Log, Advertising Manager ; Christmas Card Committee ; 2 P.

I RUSSELL LYNN GRANNIS " Slim " " T-Bone " Oelwein, Iowa ' Legs " SLIM is well known to his classmates as the tallest man in his class or the Acad- emy, for all of that. Slim has been the wonder and amazement of thousands of peo- ple, for he stands directly in front of the Rotunda at formation. Since only clothes and not beds are made to order, Slim still has to sleep doubled up like a folded accordion. Mathematics, which are so often a pitfall in a Midshipman ' s career, are Slim ' s specialty and as long as he lives he will still hear the familiar call. " Hey, Slim, how ' d ' y ' work this prob? " As a football player Slim has been a tower of strength and a big factor in putting Thirty on top in class football. He plays a regular tackle and with his range it makes little difference whether the play goes to the right or left. Slim has only to fall and reach any part of the field. Legs always prefers movies to hops and in- variablv returns with a load of peanuts and candy for his more " snaky " roommates. Slim plays four musical instruments equally well and for a long time after the last Gymkhana the boys could still hear the " Umpah " from Slim ' s bass horn. Russell ' s good nature binds together the individual fine qualities of his character into a personality that we will never forget. THOMAS HAMILTON CABLE " Tommy " " Hammy " Lawrence, Kansas HERE we have a real character and we know him well enough to decide that no material thing is too difficult for him to obtain. He has plugged through four years, often down, but far from under. He is one of that kind who has to have things against him before he can step out and go, a typical Navy type, as it were. Tommy is fun loving, but the fun is mostly on those who should attempt to " snow him under. " Like most self-asserted red mikes, each re- turn from leave brings another new hand in his fan mail. Distinctly midwestern, Tommy ' s quiet, thorough nature depicts a real capacity for accomplishment. A master of tact and perseverance, his life membership on the " loaf boats " crew on the cruises bears witness. He is always busy at some job and, when the Academic Departments cooperate with him, he can be found over in the steam department working on a steam engine model or a replica of a modern cruiser. Once he gets started he is one of those no-matter-how-thin-you- slice-it boys with his entertainment. We shall never forget his pleasant compan- ionship through four long years although we shall recall with especial joy the liberties made with him on our eventful West Coast Youngster cruise.

From the far west he came to us eager for all the world might offer. Work? The man thrives on it, and successfully defeats all attempts of the offending academics. Combined with an irresistible spirit of good cheer and an understanding heart as big as a house are all the essential qualities of splen- did manhood. His greatest delight is to take the weak side of an argument and, by outlandish exaggera- tion or long windedness or both, secure a sweeping, almost automatic victory. With such an unlimited " line, " he is sure of talking his way out of any situation. When the ex- citement lags he and his banjo-uke are sure chasers of gloom. In athletics, track and cross-country have been his greatest attainments and his pride in a pair of swift heels is thoroughly justified. And so exit the flushed cheeked, thorough- going, energetic Hilles — steaming out, clear channel and no bottom. THOMAS JAMES THORNHILL, JR. " Tom " San Antonio, Texas " " V V 7 " HO is yon handsome youth, with W the laughing blue eyes and sandy ' ™ hair? " That ' s what they all ask when they see our Tommie for the first time. This young fellow comes from that region of our fair country where notorious gun-toters, mean horses, and men of questionable intent abound; where a man ' s a man as long as he is quick on the draw; viz., Texas. Despite the atmosphere of adventure in his native state, T. J. early felt the call of the briny deep. So it was Tom joined the Serv- ice. A little experience soon told him that it would be far better to be one in 1,800 than one in 80,000, so our gallant hero set his eyes on his far-off goal, the Naval Acad- emy. After two years prepping Tom entered the Academy. If life in the U. S. N. A. has been a path of roses to T. J., it is because every rose has its own individual thorn. These thorns made themselves felt in various set- backs and buffets which would have discour- aged even an optimist, but not so our Tommie. Blocking old Frau Fate ' s K. O. punches, Tom has at last hurdled the hedge on the high road to success and is now on the broad way to a great future.

NORWOOD AXTELL CAMPBELL " Soupy Lafayette, Indiana THE well-known tendency of Scotchmen to keep that which is theirs and lose nothing can be applied to Soupy in only two particulars; he keeps his friends and doesn ' t lose his temper. Since his arrival in Annapolis Plebe summer, fresh from our Pur- due way, Soupy has gathered and held friends by the score and throughout his career at the Naval Academy has been well known for his tranquil good humor, wholehearted generosity, and deep sincerity. Although sometimes gracing the branches of the academic bushes, Campbell has always somehow been found with at least a few points on the right side of the fence when the ax fell, and has always gotten there with [he least amount of wasted energy and the maximum joy of being there. In athletics Soupy has served as a valuable asset in the sports which he has chosen and has always been a welcome member by his teammates, being as capable at throwing toast as any man on the table. The prospect of serving with Soup as often as possible in the fleet may well be expressed. " OK, Chief, suits me. " WILLIAM YOUNG ALLEN, JR. " Red " " W. Y. " " Reddy " Huntsville, Texas IN Huntsville, Texas, Red began the busi- ness of making himself a leader. His motto was never to be excelled by any- body in anything, and to be a real friend to everyone. Success followed his undertak- ings, and he decided to attend the U. S. N. A. finishing school for would-be leaders. Academically, Red never broke any records but when it comes to common horse sense or out-guessing an opponent in a game, he is hard to beat. Hard fighting and quick thinking won him positions on the two varsity squads which he helped through successful seasons. His attitude on lacrosse field, basketball floor, in classroom, or at a hop makes the observer ask, " Who is that Red head? " That torrid top of his marks him in the memory of everyone who sees him. Always above-board and clean-cut in every way, with a strength of character to be ad- mired. Independent, but big-hearted, he will give you anything from a licking to the shirt off his back, if you ask for it in the right way. Basketball 4, 3. Lacrosse 4, 3, 2 N 3. 2, 1; 1 P.

Reading from the outboard halyard, we make out the ambitious student, the aspiring athlete, the snake par excellence, and. last but not least, the sea-going mechanic. Here is a man who is not only lord of flutter- ing hearts but also a leader of men. John ' s motto is to lead — not to follow. John is a man of good taste and a lover of good times. Yea, he finesses the academics for a credit mark — and has wrestled his way to toast and butter. In fact, he is such an ardent devotee of this sport that his room- mates are often subject to his study-hour workouts. John has had two perplexing problems, though, to go with his happy memories here. His grease mark and his amount available — they are his ever-green monsters — always step into his path. Perhaps his assets would be larger if he could " cash in " his Chicago taxi- cab and youngster stock market adventures. " Red " doesn ' t receive the stock exchange cir- culars anymore and the taxi purchase is quite forgotten. Our John has faced all intricacies of his midshipman days with a definite resolve and firmness — ending with credit to himself. That same firmness and resolve will undoubtedly be noticeable in everything that comes his way in life. RICHARD MUELLER NIXON " Dick " " Nick " " Dickie " Waterford, Ohio DICK came to us a rosy-cheeked boy with an innocent expression and a willingness if not an actual love for hard work. Plebe year ' s enforced abstinence from the society of the fairer sex apparently worked a small hardship on Dickie but Youngster year brought an abrupt change. For a while he displayed all the charms and abilities of the born snake, but it must have been some- what of a trial run because he sought new forms of amusement on second class cruise and has been a profound Red Mike ever since. The " Acs " have held no terrors for him. While he hasn ' t starred he is by no means a stranger to the first section and he hasn ' t made starring any easier for the ambitious savoir. Where the track squad gathers there you will find him. A cruise with the Winter Practice Squadron took precedence over the cinders Youngster year, but whether his pole- vaulting depicts ambition for Olympic honors or merely the ability to neatly clear the wall some dark night he was not to be so easily discouraged. Above all the boy who came to us is gone and in his place is born a man. A man, morever, whom we are proud to call a friend. Wrestling: Class 3 ; Vaisity 2 ; 2 P. O.

Experience in both the regular and the Hooligan navies enabled him to rapidly make up back work and be- come firmly situated. Somewhat of a snake by nature, although by admission the most profound of Red Mikes, King rapidly established himself in the hearts of many of the fairer inhabitants of Crabtown; and when Youngster year rolled around, it was indeed a rare hop which was not favored by his presence. The Executive Department and King usually disagreed on the thing that really mattered and most of the boy ' s stay here has been re- plete with clashes with the sword and braid. Although not an athlete by intent, and somewhat handicapped by submarine duty, it is whispered among his friends that he is quite a star on the baseball diamond. Al- though not a star man, academically, King manages to steer well clear of the trees. Politeness is second nature to him and as might be said of a true gentleman he never intentionally gives offense. It is understood that King is to stay with us in the Service and we are glad, even though we know that his heart is divided. The Service and a certain girl out Purdue way have claimed him for their own. ALFRED ERNEST LAMPE " Al " Glen Rock, New Jersey ON the last day of August, 1926, this chubby-cheeked, blue-eyed lad came wandering into the Academy, anxious to find out how the Navy was run. His ready smile and cheerful disposition soon won many friends for him. That smile of his manages to break out even when those around find that conditions warrant frowns and strong language. Plebe year Al decided that baseball was the best sport the Academy had to offer. His hard work that year paved the way for a varsity berth. Youngster year he proved his value as an outfielder and hitter. His ability as an athlete is not confined to baseball, how- ever. In the fall he is a mainstay of the Class soccer team. He claims that is just to keep in shape for the baseball season. Youngster Sep. -Leave Dan Cupid scored a direct hit in his first shot. Since then social activities have had no appeal for Al. He has been too busy answering letters from a certain town in New Jersey, and figuring the least cost of a Graduation outfit. Be- tween times he gazes long and ardently at a picture on his locker door and again starts counting the days to the next leave. When Second Class Christmas leave rolled around, Al started for home with joy in his heart and a miniature in his pocket. He returned minus the miniature. If the proud possessor of his ring takes Al away from the Navy, Uncle Sam will lose a man who is every inch an officer and a gentleman. Class Rifle 4; Class Baseball 3; 2 P.

At any rate, the call of the sea was too great for him to resist, and, accordingly, he entered the Naval Acad- emy. The first part of Plebe year slipped by uneventfully — and then! Well, anyhow — ' twas the night before the Army game at Chicago. With this additional inspiration, Jack- has always had an easy time with his studies. How we have envied his carefree writing of the letter during the evening study period! His afternoons are taken up with his year around sport — gym — and it can truly be said that Jack has never been a member of the Radiator Club. Day after day one can find him working faithfully in the gymnasium, as a member of the gym team should. All in all, this light-haired, blue-eyed son of the South had made a host of friends with his quiet manner and splendid character. A man among men — Jack — we wish you the best o ' luck in your chosen career — and great happiness with the wearer of that miniature. GLENDON DEAN WILLIAMS " Glen " " Abdullah " Malvern, Iowa INTO the cornfields of Iowa was wafted the call of the sea, and Glen, hearing it, came, and saw and began his year, even as you and I. From then on, his career as a Midshipman has been marked with academic brilliance, to which the gold stars that adorn his full dress collar bear witness. Although he has never felt the urge to win athletic honors, Glen has done his bit for the class on the soccer field. In addition to that, his first three winters were taken up with compulsory attendance on sub and weak squads. His evening study hours are usually spent reading anything that is of non-academic character, writing to Bright-Eyes, or discours- ing vociferously on life in general, or some pet theory. Glen has decidedly radical views on certain subjects, which, if put into practice, would certainly cause a furor. Among Glen ' s other characteristics are his indifference toward women, his love for sus- penders of a brilliant hue and his general skepticism. Iowa has lost a great farmer, but the Navy has gained an officer whose keen logical reasoning and understanding of human nature will prove invaluable assets to all he meets. Good luck. Glen !

During his first year, he appeared to be a shy, demure person afflicted with lockjaw, but Plebe year and a Youngster cruise pro- duced that carefree, good-natured, generous-to- a-fault person whom we now know. Fortunately, academics have never proven difficult for Dave, but his troubles began when the " downfall of men " — women — took notice of this blonde Southerner. " And I learned about women from her. " Which of the many is the question. Dave has been a most consistent snake, as his vol- ume of fan mail will attest. He has confined his athletic activities to football. His ability in this aided his class to gain two successive championships. Dave appears to have those qualifications necessary for a good naval officer, and he is headed for a successful career in his chosen profession. FRANK LESHER JOHNSON " Buddy " Atlantic City, New Jersey BUDDY is a product of the playground of the world, reared among the invigora- ting influences of bathing beauties, board- walks and salt air. Which one of these influ- ences bade him heed the call of the sea we do not know, but the first day of academic year found him here. Of course he missed the grind and thrill of Plebe summer but, ro com- pensate, had the distinctive honor of going to class for the first few weeks or so in white works. Buddy has encountered little difficulties in the academics and found Youngster year espe- cially to his liking. Buddy was always there when the occasion demanded and his white head usually managed to grace the savvy sec- tions most of the time. Athletics have claimed his closest attention at all times. He has tried his hand at foot- ball, lacrosse, swimming, handball, and even baseball, and when Buddy is out in the fleet there will be few sports in which he won ' t be able to show them a few tricks. Buddy has long been defiant to the attrac- tions of the sweet sophisticated or otherwise but at last — fell, once in a lifetime there comes that time! Class Football 3, 2 ; Class Numerals ; 2 P. O.

As a result of his taste of army life he changed his desire to enter West Point, and our own Class of ' 30 received a new member. When Academics first took form, the Eng- lish and Steam Departments kept him con- tinually on the pump, but he always managed to keep one jump ahead. During the Aca- demic months, Tim was a very., consistent, worker and did not know what it was to read magazines during study hours. As a result of this constant plugging away he be- came one of our " savoirs. " But on the cruises — Tim was a different man. He had " relatives " in every port, and if he was ever needed for any working parry while not ashore he could always be found in some hide-out catching up on some of the sleep which he lost during the Academic year. Tim falls in with the class of Red Mikes, not because he has to, but because he never chose to let dragging interfere with Academ- ics. Nevertheless, he always had a heavy share of the mail because of his ability to be- come his normal self on the cruises and dur- ing leave. Through his good nature, quiet disposition, and never-say-die spirit, Tim has made many friends who will wish him luck in the future. WALTER TERRY JENKINS " Jinks " " Walt " Youngstown, Ohio IF you have any dislike for Ohio, do not utter it in the presence of Jinks, for he is more proud of being one of Ohio ' s native sons than we were of our first Daisy air rifle. But one visit to these parts and a glimpse of the Navy with its fascinating life proved too strong an attraction for him; so he left his native state to acquire some of the traits of the sea. He began his career at the Naval Academy as a very unobtrusive young man, but at the beginning of second class year he seemed to take on a new role. From then on he forgot his seriousness and became essentially a seeker of the lighter things. He is of an independent disposition and doesn ' t believe in relying upon others for guid- ance. As a result he is often the subject of a harmless joke and is quick to flare up, but he is just as quick to forgive and pass it off as being all in fun. He never did care for D.O. ' s and the pap sheet in the lease and always had a tender regard for the little brown Regulation Book. He always wanted to become an athlete, but somehow just never got around to it. Nevertheless when it came to shooting a rifle he could always be depended upon to bring back four cents change from a nickel. Jinks has his faults as all of us have, but in the four years we have known him we have found in him a sterling character and a friend who will remain. 2 P O.

" Half-Pint " Columbia, Tennessee " N c ' ONE knew him but to love him, none named him but to praise. " There is but one. The mold was lost when he stepped out of it. Diminutive, yes — un- assuming, yes — but Frank has shown us what the term gentleman means. We may men- tion his accomplishments. Why? The bottom of the page does that. We have more impor- tant things to speak of. We have found what the world terms gentleman but it means pal to us. The age-old adage: " When youth the dream departs, it takes something from our hearts — and it never comes again " is strangely meaningless. Neither time nor adversity can quench the twinkle of his eye nor the charm of a personality that is engraved on the hearts of all his associates. Frank is only part of his name, but it ' s most of his character. We ' ll drain our glasses with you, Frank, and then we ' ll drain them to you. Whatever you may be to others, we know you for what you are to us — the finest companion and truest friend that it has ever been our good fortune to know. JOSEPH EDWARD DODSON " foe " " Flash " Waco, Texas JOE breezed into our midst — a strange phenomenon — a city lad from that land of horsehide and desert-dust. He promptly threw a running bowline around our hearts and has tightened it through the years. Slow, calm, and deliberate, he has a certain natu ral charm that appeals to us. You can explain a problem to him for an hour and at the end of it all, he can always be depended upon for a drawling " huh " though its inner intricacies were plain to him before you began. Swimming is his forte, fancy diving his specialty, tennis an obsession and when it comes to ladies, his motto is " From knowledge comes she power. " Quiet, dependable, companionable, and lov- able, he is a true friend. Never self-asser- tive, always considerate of the needs of others, he makes an ideal roommate, and no man can be more than that. Harking back to the words of his pioneer ancestors we can aptly paraphrase " Thar ' s gold in that thar man. " Two Stripes ; Class Football 3 ; Baseball 2, I ; Basketball 2, 1 ; NA ; N. A. C.

JOHN JACKSON SHAFFER " Jack " Houma, Louisiana JACK possesses that intangible charm of personality which, with an unaffected ease of manner, distinguishes the perfect gen- tleman in the genuine sense. A man among men, he has endeared himself to those who love him, and to those fortunates who are in daily contact with him, Jack has shown that his idiosyncrasies are few, his abilities varied, and his perfect good humor perennial. He is one of the few who strive to attain the ideal and yet in so doing can appreciate the quiet pleasures of life and understand the foibles of his fellow men. He has set his goal and notwithstanding the wiles of fate he will achieve it. He accomplishes his work thoroughly, but unobtrusively, and his success and popularity are but milestones; for to Jack the greatest joy of life is achieve- ment. Jack fostered a desire to become a gymnast and by dint of conscientious effort during the long winter months he made a worthy ad- dition to the team which won the Inter- Collegiate Championship. His literary talents gained him the associate-editorship of the Lucky Bag. JEAN LOUIS CAILLOUET, JR. " Jean " " Col " " Bosco " Houma, Louisiana WITH a French name and the man- ners of an English gentleman, Jean took to the sea " for better or for worse. " With some, familiarity breeds con- tempt, but Jean has reversed this axiom and close friendship has bred only a deep ap- preciation for the merits of the man. When shoals and dangerous reefs have thrust their rocky heads above the surface of academic seas, this boy has been one of the few that met them with the calm philosophy of the carefree Southerner that he is. A lifetime of acquaintance would lend no inkling to his innermost thoughts, and time alone can tell what they may blossom into. Ideals have meant much to him and he has stolidly ad- hered to them through the varied adversities of youth. His personality grows on one. The essences of gentlemanly requisites are therein embodied. Cheerful and polite to all, familiar with few, helpful, courteous, and fair, he is a man whose friendship is to be valued. The oncoming years can but lend polish and charm to a personality so solidly founded. May he wear them gracefully like the beads of a rosary to set off an already placid dis- position.

" New Haven, Connecticut FEELING the call of the sea far stronger than that of old Eli, Smitty left his home to pursue his studies with the rest of us here on the banks of the Severn and has been slowly trotting along after them ever since. Whenever you wanted a skag or a look at the latest in desk accessories he was always there. Not a snake nor a red mike, he just took it easy and refused to let them worry him, with one exception; he had to brave his mail. The postmarks changed from year to year but it had to come. So also his Satur- day Evening Post was a necessity of life. A terrible singer, a worse speller, he would borrow your shaving gear or stamps; but withal a good man to sweep out the room with for four years and one that will prove the best of shipmates out in the Fleet. Calm, unhurried, but capable, Phil ' s un- ruffled demeanor appears at times to be indo- lence. But the ease with which he vaulted each academic barrier gives the lie to that. " Still water runs deep " ; Phil is a quiet man and no one knows his depths. We have had fleeting glimpses of them but never does he let go of his calm exterior, which is his bul- wark against the annoyances, privations and restrictions of this military life. In anv of the seven seas, in the most precarious of condi- tions, there will be no nervousness when one has the quiet worth, the unflustered capability of P. T. alongside him. RICHARDS HAYES McPEAKE " Joe " " Mac " Wilton, Massachusetts OH ! The tall dark-haired man on the left? The one with the big gun? Yes, that ' s our Joe. Savez? Well, Joe has not been too greedy but he has had a fair share of the honors. His share might have been greater, but studying is one of Joe ' s weaknesses. Athletic? Yes, indeed, Joe has taken part in athletics ever since he entered. Plebe year saw him initiated to the graces of soccer and he has been a devotee ever since. Spring finds him out on the track where he performs as a high jumper. Snake? Well, yes and no. You can find Joe present at most hops and he has been known to attend receptions and teas, but it is a rare occasion when Joe drags. Every leave and every cruise adds new names to his list of correspondents, but as yet no one has been able to claim Joe as her own. Personality? Plus! Joe is an ideal companion to any party. His worries are few and he is ever ready to lend a sym- pathetic ear. Habits? He possesses both kinds. He smokes a pipe at intervals and will at times attempt tobacco of doubtful ex- traction. He is addicted to " no-soap " stories and has a devotion for canopied beds and Rolls-Rovces. Future? Joe ' s future should be a brilliant one. If he carries on in coming years as he has done in the past four we may confidently expect to find him at the top of the pile. Here ' s luck, Joe. 2 P. O. ; Gymkh.tn.t I. 1 P.

Page Tiro Hundred Twenty-four i ZACK DAVID JENNINGS " Zack " Sumner, Mississippi EACH spring candidates for admission gather outside the gates to exchange whispered queries about the Academy. June of 1926 found this sophomore " transfer- red from ' Ole Miss., ' " as he said. Any who solemnly thought " It is going to be awfully hard to finish here, " he answered by saying that it would be " fruit. " He boasted to an unknown, who was later to become a com- petitor in Olympic trials, that he could out- run him in his favorite event. Having never considered athletics seriously nor even found occasion to use logarithms in academic work, the conclusion he arrived at applied equally well to both, with the result that instructors found him in the September month of pre- liminary schooling imbued with a strong youngster complex. One night he was asked after a particularly hard examination: " What mark do you think you made, Mr. Jennings? " " Oh, about a 3.2, sir. " The tree came up and the mark was the inevitable 2.0. In the years that have followed, extra in- struction periods have engaged many a recrea- tion hour. Ask him any time how much velvet he has and he will tell you that he is pulling sat. HERMAN KEITH LEGARE " Simon " " Mulit " Georgetown, South Carolina ATTENTION to a very few of his re- marks would soon place this lad. His accent alone, to say nothing of his ideas about questions on which the Northerner and Southerner disagree, proclaims him a true son of South Carolina. Born on the coast, he had ample oppor- tunity to satisfy his natural taste for sailing and experimenting with boats of all kinds, and as a result could tell any of us a few things about seamanship before we ever started piloting Naval Academy craft out on the Severn. His entrance to the Naval Academy was not caused by any special love for a military life, but when the opportunity came to him his love of travel and variety of activity made him take advantage of it. His ability to see both sides of any ques- tion and his consideration for the feelings of others keep him from stooping to the petty little remarks of which so many of us are often guilty when in an irritable mood. Rather quiet and thoughful by nature, he is never intrusive, and is governed in his actions by the mood of those around him. His thoughtfulness, generosity, and loyalty to his friends are of the kind that make him a good fellow. We hope that the service has won him to stay.

Page Tiro Hundred Twenty-fwe ROBERT FRANCIS LYNCH " Bob " Utica, New York THWARTED in his youthful ambition to become a member of the Utica Police Force, he entered our ranks and became a devoted member of the " A " Squad, walking his beat with a Springfield instead of a " Billy- club. " When off duty, he amuses himself, (we don ' t mind) by playing the piano, or, if listening to the Vic, by certain vague ges- tures which, to the initiated, denote the highly developed art of cymbal crashing, for, after all, the Irish have a musical soul. His second momentous desire was to be- come a big, husky crew man, but this soon became his suppressed desire, because of a lack of bigness and huskiness. Still athleti- cally inclined, he desired to help the Class in baseball, for was he not the pride of the Utica sandlots? Bob is naturally very peaceful and quiet, and exemplifies perfectly the " take it easv " atti- tude of the Irish. His only disputes (besides a constant ballyhoo over the merits of the Emerald Isle) have been with the Academic and Executive Departments, and, although he has usually managed to best the former, the latter has caused him much embarrassment, as well as some unpleasant recreation periods. THADDEUS JOHNSON VAN METRE " Van " Anderson, Indiana FOR four years we have carefully watched the progress of our " Van " — only to dis- cover that he absolutely refuses to change. Fun is his predominant passion. His frequent recitations bubble over with his own mirth, and when he takes the floor all op- position desists, for it is known that a unique yarn is about to be unfolded and resistance is useless. Perhaps it is that droll cajolery of his that renders the unfair sex so defenseless against his bizarre tactics. In addition, he might properly be called a correspondence " Snake " — he meets ' em, thrills ' em, and then keeps ' em guessing through the mails. By nature favorably disposed towards a life of luxurious ease, he hasn ' t given his athletic abilities a fighting chance. Plebe summer he boxed for the company, and the next three autumns found him donning the gridiron uni- form for the beloved guidon. There is no telling how far he might have gone in this field — if it — hadn ' t been for that ankle! But his handiness with " dukes " shows his aggressive nature when necessary. And his peremptory contempt for the departments of learning indicates his uncanny ability to out- wit knowledge. He will never lack friends, nor falter on the rungs, simply because he is " Van.

Page Two Hundred Twenty-six JOHN CORBUS " Johnnie " " Corbi " Valle jo, California RIGHT from the Golden Gate he came to steer a never-faltering course through the academics. A perennial pessimist, he was the man to leave the exam room talk- ing to himself of bilging, of 1.5 ' s or worse, only to make a mark that stood him in the select first hundred. His tough fight was staged in Macdonough Hall. Ever grum- bling about his lack of taste for the accom- plishments of a gymnast, he could, however, scramble up the rope like a monkey when leave depended upon it. Classed as a " Red Mike " his conquest in Vallejo (ah! that quaint little town just up the bay from San Francisco) was sensational. Outwardly seri- ous of mien but inwardly smiling, he was, perhaps, not the easiest man to become ac- quainted with, but his never-failing generosity coupled with his keen sense of humor made his friendship well worth the seeking. Never a great devotee of sport, Johnnie, however, found time to shoot with the Plebe rifle team, play tennis as a youngster and in his spare moments develop a fast, lucky game of hand- ball. " And I ' ll never go near that gymna- sium if I live to be a hundred. " GEORGE ELLIOT MARIX " Squeak ' ' Los Angllls, California THESE few words are an attempt to picture a most carefree Marine junior who answers to the name of " Squeak " most of the time, but when dignity demands will heed the name of George. Having traveled from the torrid clime of Haiti to the frigid temperature of Norway, he has acquired a certain air of worldliness that stands him in good stead. Never bashful or shy but never loud, he has the appearance of one whose sole problem is to find three meals and have at least ten but preferably twelve hours of sleep each day. One might say that studies don ' t come naturally after watch- ing him wage a two-and-a-half year war with the Math Department, but nevertheless his death will never be attributed to overwork. He plays water-polo and lacrosse, inter- spersed with a bit of track and a touch of rifle to break the monotony. In his spare time he reads air and war stories, his tastes justified by the fact that all great men must relax their minds in some manner. Strong, alert, hard fighting, rough and ready Squeak; he is always able and always willing whether it is a fight or a frolic.

Page Two Hundred Tue ily-seven VERNON LONG LOWRANCE " Rebel " Catawba, North Carolina HE is probably best known to the regi- ment for his ability to handle the hot corner on the diamond ; nevertheless it would be most unfair to slur over his other accomplishments. In order of importance, they are: An unfailing sense of humor, a strong sense of justice (except on subjects deal- ing with the Civil War), the smoothest line South of Mason and Dixon ' s, an excellent mixer (in society and of drinks), and a weakness for wine, women and singing in the showers. He is most athletically inclined and if he isn ' t on the varsity or B squad of a sport he can usually be found on a company or class team. Although constantly threatening to drag, he usually adorns the stag line; and when his invitations are given and accepted the result usually pleasantly surprises both his friends and himself. His ambitions lean toward the air service, and with luck and well packed ' chutes he ' ll soon be showing the old world new tricks in a plane. Without luck, six years will find him with two stripes, the top button of his blouse unbuttoned, and back in the seam department grudgingly handing out 2.7 maxi- mums. JAMES TAYLOR WILBUR " Jim " Kalamazoo, Michigan A NAUTICAL breeze from the lake swept down on the Alpha Delta Phi House at Michigan and thus it was that Jim joined us. Although the drop to lowly Plebe was a great one, Plebe year was successfully survived. He ' s from that far-famed city, Kala- mazoo, whose praises he expounds on all oc- casions; but after investigation we agree with him. In athletics, Jim prefers to push the pins and may be found almost any afternoon over in the fencing loft perfecting this ability. The annual fencing trips to New York look mighty good and he always manages to make them. Being able to assume that " savoir faire " air has, as a whole, kept him on the long end of the scrap with the academic departments. The only contrary incident to this was that last memorable battle with the Math depart- ment. His daily supply of sweetly scented epistles is wide and varied, but thev all seem to like his Mencken sryle of writing — even the English instructors. Need more be said ? He has acquired a patent knowledge of the fine arts of literature from a natural inclina- tion to read and also a gentle boost in this direction during Plebe year. M. P.

This difficulty has in no way daunted his efforts. Crew has been his guiding star. The hole left by Tom in the Varsity Line-up has been filled by Ian. While there are Eddys, there will be no fears for the strength of any foot- ball wall. There is a tower of strength in Jack and we like to know that he is working for instead of against us. " Eh! Bien. We are waiting for the work at the boards " has even sent shivers down his spine, but the " Give her ten " at the end of any race I13S held no fears for Ian. He is a man we cannot but love. There is nothing about him that is not genuine. There is no make-believe or pretension about him. Straightforward, strong, friendly, Ian we are glad to call you friend. LAWRENCE RUFF " Larry " Saratoga Springs, New York HE fooled us at first. The medicos turned him back out of ' 29 with a trick knee, and he was almost an " upper classman " to some of us for awhile. But a few months of Plebe year wore that away — and now he ' s one of the boys. Larry thinks he ' s rather tough, but he isn ' t. (He ' s Ruff, of course, but his father is responsible for that). He ' d give you his shirt, except that he is the only 15% in the class; and he writes a letter every night, and likes poetry. Figure it out! He ' ll talk for you if you ' ll take him aside somewhere and get him started; y ou ' ll prob- ably never know him if you don ' t. Larry be- lieves in the " even tenor " and practices it. He would give it up for football — but there ' s that knee again; too bad, too, with those shoulders that he has to carry through the door sidewise. He ' s one of the boys who count — and we like him. 2 P. O. ; Football 4. 5. 2. 1 : N 3, 2. 1 ; Crew 4, 3. 2. 1, ; Numerals. Plebe Varsity Football ; Crew Squad I : Clean Sleeve.

" Funk " " Tony " Annapolis, Maryland THIS cheerful lad from Crabtown is an excellent shipmate, always on hand for working parties and always ready for the first boat ashore. A true classmate also, never far from the first section and constantly boosting. An aid and example for persevering progress. Though not particularly athletic himself, be- cause of a bad knee, he knows all about ath- letics past, present, and prospective. He specializes in football and basketball and plays both of them well. He also spent some spare hours with the swimming squad and the juice gang. His quiet and reserved air caused us to attach little importance to his infrequent at- tendance at hops and other social functions until we saw him on the cruise and later on leave; then we became convinced that the femmes were all for him when he gave them a chance, probably attracted by his modesty. We shall meet him in other ports and serve with him on other ships and always be glad of the opportunity. A true friend — no more is necessary. WILLIAM ANO BURGETT " Billy Denver, Colo rado THE mere fact that he comes from that section of the country which is famous for its unequaled climate and wonderful scenery justifies Billy ' s contentions that Den- ver is the garden spot of the world. After you have listened to his dissertation on the subject you will, no doubt, readily agree with him. Billy admits that in all these years since that memorable day of June in 1926 he has learned considerably — principally that Uncle Sam ' s Navy is the best organization in the world. Besides being a bona fide " savoir, " his en- deavors in the athletic field show that he is an athlete as well as a scholar. During the winter months, in his spare moments, you will invariably find him in the wrestling loft. During the other seasons of the year he works hard at various other sports. Billy ' s quiet and unassuming manner has baffled us in more ways than one. He believes that the femmes are a jinx to him, but we know that one of these days some sweet young thing will come into his life, and then it will only be a question of how hard he will fall. - 2 P.

When first we gazed on his smiling visage he was trying to rid himself of his Navy chest and still is! Altho he is well versed in dietetics, and rarely neglects his workout, it seems that Nature has just des- tined that his physical rotundity forever be a companion to his constant smile. Having never known him to hurry anywhere, we can safely say that his Southern urge for leisure will certainly not fail Nature in her intent. Despite his apparent leisurely attitude, Blackie is one of the busiest and most versatile men it has been our good fortune to know. Radio and Juice have long been his hobbies and consequently he can hold his own with the best of the juice savoirs. " Sketch in detail " is an Ac department gift to this able illus- trator, for drawing pictures is really a pastime with him. Steam will always bow before his masterful stroke. Well known is the day that he ruined his wife ' s grease by his devilish caricatures — but that ' s not all. Early in Plebe year his ability as stenogra- pher and typist earned for him a position as Batt Yeoman, and consequently he has not signed a watch list yet! This ability, coupled with his art, has enabled him to become a proficient and active staff member of the Log, Lucky Bag, Trident Society and Christmas Card Committee, to say nothing of his attend- ance at more special dinners than any other two men in the regiment. GEORGE THOMAS McCREADY, JR. " Mack " Long Island, New York THE stories tell us that storks bring most folks, but the old stork laid down on the job and let Santa Claus pile out Mack along with the other blessings to the McCready household back yonder when the last two numbers on the calendar were rep- resented by a zero and a digit. His pride and joy is in anything mathematical. He is in his glory when one addresses him on the searchings and discoveries of Archimedes and even our dear Newton should not be slighted. As a historian Mack can give one all the available facts, but when it comes to an expression of it he is somewhat lost. To attempt to portray the character of Mack and leave out his neatness and orderliness would certainly be futile. It is a trait to be ad- mired in any man. As we sit and watch Mack comb that ever-curling, black hair and then stick the comb to his ear to see the sparks jump, we wonder if it is a sign of his magnetic personality. His quiet nature may lead some to believe that he is not as much of an Irishman as he really is, but neverthe- less he ' s all there. He is forever tinkering with tools or models as a little boy would with toys, but it isn ' t childishness; no. far from it, but rather his love for mechanical objects and things that tick. In short he is likable, jovial, systematic, forgivable, intelli- gent and good-hearted, topped off with a wee bit of stubbornness, but of course, that ' s the Irish in him. 2 P.

" Hord " " Army " Flemingsburg, Kentucky THE fast horses and lovely women that tradition has always assigned to Ken- tucky find their place in Hord ' s heart, for he is a true Kentuckian. To be sure, the Academy is not perhaps the most fertile stamping-ground of the horses — but Hord makes his appearance at every hop, though perhaps sighing inwardly for distant Ken- tucky belles. The Colonel ' s marked gift of eloquence makes him a ready and welcome member of the evening bull sessions. Flashes of wit intersperse themselves with more weighty dis- course. In the academics little worry has been caused, though Hord freely admits no profs here have a true appreciation of his sterling ability. His athletic activities have chiefly taken the form of baseball. In him the class team has found a valuable third baseman. With blue baseball cap at a jaunty angle and a steady patter of encouragement or disparage- ment as the case might call for — that would be Hord. His previous military training has left its mark, and of this he is very proud. But to us, the outstanding fact of him is not his wit nor his baseball, nor his military aspirations. To us, he means that to which he has constantly aspired — a true Kentucky gentleman, in every sense of the word. HARRY BENJAMIN DODGE " Harry " Portland, Maine HARRY hails from the stern and rock- bound coast of Maine, long noted for its seafaring men. Since the day he nonchalantly entered Number 2 Gate nothing has been known to disturb his peace of mind or to rumple his good nature. Acclimating himself at once to the swing of Naval Academy life and early acquiring a host of friends, Harry " broke " well out in front and his position has never been chal- lenged. Without being noted for his per- severance and tenacity in " boning, " he has been consistently at the top of the class aca- demically. Early recognized as one of the in- tellectuals he has oft been consulted on tech- nical affairs and the greatest of respect was accorded his decisions. Aside from his scholarly accomplishments Harry has many others which recommend him for an ideal shipmate. He has always added fuel to the flames in our undertakings and has shown unmistakable genius in our battles with the Executive Department.

He immediately " went over " like a warm zephyr off the Sahara. Fun- loving, industrious, combining toil with triv- iality, his popularity is certainly deserved. He has made good his boast that North Caro- lina produces the world ' s most beautiful women by undeniable proof throughout his whole four years. A companion that jibes with all, his disposition is one that no one can dis- like. Nothing, no matter how disagreeable, has ever upset his perfect equanimity. His greatest pleasure, pastime, and pre-occupation has been diving, and there are few his equal on the springboard. From pleasure parties in Philadelphia to working parties in Port- land, we ' ve known him, teased him, irritated him, and loved him. The friendship formed either here or elsewhere has confirmed us in the first hasty estimate of Angel. The warm-hearted, gentlemanly boy has proven the warm-hearted, lovable gentleman. THOMAS KENNETH WRIGHT " Kip " Tuscaloosa, Alabama t ' T TEY! Wait a minute. " We wait I I for him — a lad with a smile as - ■ sunny as the climate from whence he sprung and a walk that tells the world he loves walking. He is five-feet six of Ala- bama ' s unspoiled, cheery manhood. He loves the Navy, enjoys his associations with Navy people and, in short, enjoys life. Anybody that knows " Kip " will tell you that he would give you the shirt off his back if properly approached on the subject. That shirt would very likely belong to someone else, however, because of the fact that " Kip " has developed a marked dislike for the Mid- shipmen ' s Store. He has a taste for music that no one can understand. He collects records from every room on the deck, carefully selects the most painful one, and plays it as soon as he can get out of bed in the morning. There is nothing indefinite about Kip; He always knows what he wants and exactly how he is going to get it. His plans seldom go astray because the unfailing energy, to- gether with his gentlemanly conduct and bear- ing, make " Kip " a cheery, fascinating, fun- loving pal and a man who is no sooner known than loved.

Destination? . . . (even- tually guarding ' heaven ' s scenes) but in the immediate future: one gold bar for rank, Hawaii for a home, and a honeymoon for happiness. The Bureau of Supplies and Accounts would say: assets — personality, good looks, musical talent; liabilities: — a too serious na- ture, a Marine complex, and a girl. The calibrated scales give Fred an even break for success; of his happiness there can be no doubt. One other thing about Fred — he remem- bered Polonius ' advice to Laertes. Although the Academy was but a means to an end for him, we forgive him, for Service was the end he had in mind.

EDDIE RUEL SANDERS " Eddie ' " Sandy " Marion, Illinois BACK in Marion. Eddie was one of the shining lights in scholastic football, but here it has been soccer and lacrosse, in both of which he is well above the mediocre players. Not long ago before entering our midst he sojourned at the University of Illinois, where he must have had many happy relationships, for he still takes on a happier mien when he hears " Hail to the Orange. " He is fair and considerate and has a smile for everyone, although at times a strong sense of duty makes him seem a bit dictatorial. His trim figure and neat appearance cause even males to turn for a second look and thus, in addition to looking the part, Eddie is pos- sessed of all the rare traits of character which go to make up the true officer. Ac work means little in the way of difficulty to this lad who started Plebe year and who has sailed through the other three so easily that the trees, much dreaded by others, seldom held him in their uncomfortable branches. With very little effort he stood near the top of the class; and had he been more interested, it is easy to guess where he would have stood. His present ambitions are directed toward aviation — and Eddie has made a habit of realizing his ambitions. In any event there will be many watching for the brilliant future which his exceptional capabilities point out for him. Choir 4, 3. 2 ; Class Crest Committee; Hop Committee 2 ; Baseball 4.

CLAYTON first tried college for an edu- cation but found the lure of the deep too strong to be denied. He therefore forsook his quest for knowledge of things in- tangible and joined the brotherhood of the sea. His change has proven a wise one, too, for here he has found himself a place among Neptune ' s chosen few and bids fair to be among those present whenever honors are bestowed. By his perseverance and genuine hard work he has withstood all the Academic onslaughts without so much as a scar and has always been a good old stone wall to friends who have found themselves less for- tunate. Were it not for his modesty, fame and fortune would be his; but he chooses rather to leave his mark by words and deeds that those who know him will always consider well worth remembering.

WALTER GALE EBERT " Wallf Parkersburg, West Virginia ttr-ph HE mountaineers are hardy men, they have no fear. " In this manner, we deem it best to introduce our Walter of West Virginia, land of monstrous mountains, beautiful wom- en, and coal dust. In athletics, he has limited his efforts to soccer and crew, and from the last sport he has learned, at least, the art of handling an oar; that is, if we may judge from the manner in which he skilfully manipulates a canoe paddle. In fact, if he had only a more melodious voice for singing, he would make a perfect gondolier. It would be an irreparable misfortune if when charac- terizing Walter, we did not mention his numerous ventures in the role of those who drag. He is eternally dragging and thus far has managed to preserve not only a creditable, but a leading batting average. Although a great philosopher at heart, he succeeds in tak- ing his seriousness under what is known by its right name as the best of good fellowship. Two Stripes ; Swimming Squad 4. 3 !

Today his eyes are as blue and cheeks as pink. For the underhanded assaults of differential equations and thermody- namics have left him untouched — unmoved. His carefree nature has preserved its sang- froid and equanimity throughout the years. Ed ' s world is perpetually rosy. The carefree nature, however, is not the result of mental laziness, as is oft the case. The rapidity and acuteness with which Pinky diagnoses a mechanical construction, and the ready grasp that he has of practical matters, leave nothing to be desired. We have often gazed with envy at the ease with which Ed meets situations and problems. Right into the heart of the matter he goes and smacks the bull ' s-eye. Perhaps this happy faculty is the by-product of his avocation of rifle. Every spring sees Ed on the rifle range pouring a merry hail of lead into the bull ' s-eye. The man who would challenge Eddie to a duel with firearms must be a very brave or foolhardy one indeed. There are plenty of bull ' s-eyes to be made in the Service — and Eddie will go forth to make them. Commence firing. Pinky! HAROLD FRANK JOHNSON " Johnny 1 ' " Hiram " Jamestown, New York. HE left Jamestown for the Navy shortly after graduating from his home- town high school. He entered with a calm, serene manner, and never lost it. He doesn ' t give much of his time to sub- jects he doesn ' t like, but those he does like, such as philosophy, femmes, medicine, and a few of the required studies, occupy him in- cessantly. He never looks at a tree, not even one from the Navy Department. Never? Well, hardly ever. He takes great pleasure in running, and when the season comes around, he is out with the cross-country squad, circling Farragut Field for hours every afternoon. His wide reading and bent for the classics made the English course a delight and opened a position for him on the Lucky Bag Staff. Between bridge and books he has passed a happy four years, well filled and well spent. A veil of quiet unobtrusiveness cloaks Har- old ' s every action, and oftentimes causes one to overlook the hidden intellectual energy stored beneath. But his mind is alwavs work- ing, and although his ideas and philosophies are variable and uncertain, there will come a day when his omnivorous reading and mental inquisitiveness will more than prove their value not only to himself, but to those who are fortunate enough to be his associates. ■ r " l 1 P.

Page Two Hundred Thirty-six tr FRANK LAEDLEIN ROBINSON " Robbie " Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania KNOWING the " ins and outs " of Navy life before he entered, Robbie was not disillusioned of glorious dreams of gold and gallantry by the drudgery of drill and academics. Young and willing, he has had four years full of fun and freedom in spite of restric- tions. Bridge and books precede academics. He has a beginner ' s luck at holding cards and the skill of a master at playing them. Books are borrowed and lent so quickly in his room that it would drive a librarian to using a slipstick. A gentleman of leisure, he is too busy for athletics but finds time to follow them all, from the errors of the Plebe shortstop to the times of the three-year-olds at Bowie. An intelligent watcher of all games, he never misses a chance to be at any Navy competition. He grew out of his Blue Service suits Youngster year and was promoted to first man of the Sandblowers. His propensities for cheerfulness have also continued to expand. We shall always have a sincere welcome for " Robbie " and his smile. JULIUS LUNDIE SMITH " Smitty " " Red " Macon, Georgia LUNDIE has always been a man whose " yesterdays look backward with a smile. " They have nothing to repent. There is nothing that could take from him the rosy outlook that he has upon life. A biting sense of humor, the fruit of a nimble and exceptionally keen mind — marks him as a dangerous duelist in the art of words. The courtesy, the tact, the consideration that you would expect in the gentleman are all there. The knowledge and vitally evident life that are not so mandatory are there also. In him, there is combined the pleasant, interesting companion and the serious loyal friend. The manners of a Chesterfield and the ability of an efficiency expert are strangely allied. He can give a command like no other man in our acquaintance and he can say " Aye, Aye, sir " with the same snap and readiness. His " I. D. R. " is his Bible; a soldier, it seems, who has strayed " down to the sea in ships. " Lundie ' s tomorrows will ever be like his yesterdays — they will never look back on today with regrets. 2 P. ().

From the number of yarns he tells, one is led to believe that he was born with a squilgee in one hand and a swab in the other. And so we have the collegiate mariner. Aside from college, the sea, and travels his life is divided by other interests. Paramount of these is that never-flagging all-absorbing interest in that certain party. Has ever a day gone by that he has not written to her? Decidedly not. Even from the hospital and the left hand came those letters with the same regularity. Give Mac something to " look forward to " and he is as happy as the day is long. It need not be much either, so he is usually at peace with the world. Congenial and sociable he makes friends easily wherever he may be. Mac is easily entertained and according to him liberty is just another chance to buy records. Indications point to a successful career in anything which he may take up.

Murads are Murads. but for nonchalance he has them beat a mile, in any direction p. s. c. When he attains a most awe-inspiring vic- tory in his favorite indoor sport (it might be called billiards) his countenance reveals naught, he but reaches for a novel, an orange, etc., etc., and J ' est fini. Bill is no woman-hater — they merely bore him. He did mention an O.A.O. once but he either forgot her name and address or she got married. There was no wailing and gnash- ing of teeth, he merely picked up the etc., etc., and kept enjoying his beans and brown bread each Wednesday or when will you. Bill admits being lazy and having no desire for strenuous activities or athletic awards. A little tennis or handball suffices. However, when he wants to, he works hard and well. He makes a good listener when his roommate raves about a certain girl at home, has a placid disposition, is seldom in a hurry, drags about once a year, never has to worry about his academics, is thinking of being a Lindbergh and is just the same old Yuk ' s in fair or foul weather.

Bill is a dreamer, and for a dreamer he is quite a doer; the Academics never fazed him and he got along well without dragging, frenching out or eating onions. His progress in the Navy was aided and abetted by the in- sidious fact that he comes from Boston and likes beans. , His room — new novels are on his shell, a N. Y.

Ray is a thoroughly good fellow, and so makes an excellent roommate. Here is a true friend, always by your side in trouble or pleasure. When the " blues " descend, Ray is the man who offers a cheering word, usu- ally coupled with excellent advice. Nothing is ever so important that he cannot find time to help his many friends. His generous spirit is always ready to do what is most pleasing to others. Carefree, a supply of in- teresting yarns, a ready sense of humor, clever and likable — so that wherever he goes, friendship springs up. No wonder everyone likes him! Easy-going himself, he likes books easy to read and he always has a good romance or detective story to rest and soothe the mind after rhe daily struggle with the " confidential " mysteries of the Academics Departments. He takes them all at " Cruising Speed, " regardless; certainly a guarantee of an equable temper and a contented life.

But since then our babe has struck a happy medium be- tween " snake " and " red mike, " dragging only when the spirit moves him. Coming from New York, Connie knew the " little village " from the Battery to the Bronx, and his friends from the wide open spaces never tired of hearing about the doings in Gotham.

We have been led to believe that the well-braced foundation with which he is endowed is the result of his being brought up on a barrel instead of the customary bottle. Lance lost his alibi when we found out he was from Watertown. He received his early sea training on the boats in Chanmouth Bay, and here he cultivated a desire for the life of a sailor. High school soon became a bore to the young fellow with lofty ambitions, and with his heart set on his goal, he spent a short year of intensive boning at Severn, where he fought a hard battle with Math. Since then, he has been gliding along on smooth water with occasionally a ripple set up by the Dago Department. Will we ever forget that persistent smile, that lasting testimony of Lance ' s philosophy of life? Though many a time it has been the cause of disturbance at drill and the em- barrassment of a disciplinarian, it has never been dimmed. We will always think of him as rolling along with no trouble in the world serious enough to share with anyone else. We find what we are looking for. so they say. Lance is always on the lookout for an opportunity to flash that grin. WILLIAM SEARS ESTABROOK, JR. " Bill " " Foggy " Fayetteville, New York HAVING tired of life in the far north, Bill sallied forth to seek new thrills. He settled on the Navy. He found them immediately while boxing for the com- pany, Plebe Summer. Such a striking start (Will the Marines never come?) won him many friends, and he has continued to make them in whatever he does. Blue eyes and blonde hair are assets. Little girls and a big accordion are his greatest weaknesses. To see him wrap him- self around that miniature piano and pull and squeeze grunts, groans and squeaks from it is a sight in itself. Your whole being will vibrate from it; the concussion sees to that. Bill is saturated with enthusiasm. It mani- fests itself in anything he does, from " Acs " to sports. It is invariably, " Sure, let ' s go! " Incidentally, academics hold no terrors for him. It isn ' t everyone who can spend two months in the hospital, and then make the star boys fight for their places. Lacrosse is his favorite method of getting rid of excess energy, and that southpaw of his has worried ' em consistently. You can tell your secret sorrows to Bill, and be sure they ' ll be safe.

However, when he arrived at the " School for Admirals " this sport had to give way to his favorite pastime, swimming. How- ever, he does love his sleep. When he is not sleeping, one can generally find him in the pool. We like him for his grin, cheery chuckle and good sense of humor. He will talk to you any old time about any subject but prefers to do so in ranks. He has made himself a host of friends. Sociable and cheerful, he will make his way anywhere, ashore or afloat. He likes the fair sex, but so far has shown no favorites. The Academic Departments did not trouble him. To say the least, he is a consistent student and his name seldom if ever graced the list of those who receive their marks weekly. He has what is required for success, and, one and all, we join in wishing him the best. FRANK MILLER " Frank " Washington, D. C.

Whether it is due to his fond- ness for eating or to his " penchant " toward the easy life, we know not; however, he is gifted with a rotundiry that would make Caesar himself swell with joy to behold, for if lean men are dangerous Frank is an angel. Serious minded, hard working, is Frank. His section numbers are always in the small digits, from this determination never to leave out a by-pass or invert a period. Quiet and unassuming, occasionally head- strong and obstinate, he makes up for his little shortcomings by possessing a perpetual good nature and readiness to take most things that come his way with a smile. There is a class who live and move among us who from their very unobtrusiveness are sometimes almost unseen. It is when the weather gets " dusty " and the going rough that we feel the strength behind that reserve. And. moreover, Frank makes an interesting companion and a straightforward friend. 2 P.

BILL has ever been popular with us for his determination and the quiet dog- gedness with which he tackles any difficulty. Plebe year was the first exhibition he gave of these characteristics. In the box- ing ring, in that first preliminary skirmish with the Academic Departments, they were quickly apparent. He has one ambition — success in anything that he undertakes — and some day, in some manner, his quiet, unassum- ing tactics will bring results. Aviation has ever been his pride and joy. Seldom is he ever without aviation pamphlets piled about him. We will think of Bill when we need a friend — not only in fair weather but in foul as well — and there is something about him that makes us realize that we will never be disappointed in our estimate of him. So it has proven in the present and we know that the future will not he different.

HARMON " Willie " " Bill " Michigan IT would seem that the call of the sea has always sounded more or less strongly in the blood of those hardy in- dividuals who reside near the shores of the great Inland Seas. This call was especially prevalent in the veins of our Bill. When he once decided to give his time and attention to the project of properly defending cur coun- try, all humanity could not hold him hack. He arrived with a lust for the salt sea and ships which even a bitter struggle with that grim nightmare known as " Dago " could not abate. His easy-going disposition successfully survived both the blistering heat and soul- searing monotony of Guatanamo and the wild roarings of a Hatteras Gale. He has a weakness in one spot — like Achil- les — any kind of girl, big, little, tall or small, can captivate poor Willie ' s heart — Ah — but it is a different proposition to say how long she can hold it. But hold — our hero has still one other very small weakness, an almost unfor- givable one in the eyes of all physical train- ing instructors — he can ' t climb a rope. By virtue of this unfortunate inability he for- feited a prize Christmas leave. This aroused his ire and he then and there determined to climb that rope if he had to get a ladder to do it. The psychological effect of this was so great that he accomplished his mission with almost no trouble at ail — and now the road to success is open to him, free of all obstructions.

His first apparent weaknesses were a failing for bob-haired blondes and a prejudice against red heads. But with Youngster cruise these weaknesses soon disappeared and now he claims " a girl in every port. ' His athletic activities are confined to the sub squad, but with a de- termined effort and the aid of beef, iron and wine he was soon dropped from this list. Academics hold no terrors for him, but they get monotonous at times. He is a hard and conscientious worker, always boning Nav or Juice, in fancied weakness, in lieu of the Log. Waddy tried to take himself rather seri- ously. There was that dignity — that he couldn ' t quite put across. He gave up and became " one of the boys " in spite of himself. And, despite occasional lapses into meditation over the fate of nations and the destinies of man, Waddv has become an unfailing figure when the clan gathers and the less weighty matters of Bancroft Hall are being passed around. 2 P.

His absolute sin- cerity and his unfailing good humor have combined to win him the respect and admira- tion of all who have been fortunate enough to know him. Whether it was the big blast of the river boats on his native waters or his longing for their distant shores and myriad interests that first fired the desire for a heaving deck and the salt sea spray we do not know. It suffices for us that with the passing years we have found in Steve a friend well worthy of the trust and confidence of his shipmates. Blessed with the courage of his own con- victions, determined and with an unusual sense of humor that overcomes obstacles his presence is indeed an asset in any undertaking; and with that curly hair and innocent smile — need more be said? Steve savs the secret of it all is to cut the rocks close but never scrape bot- tom. WILLIAM NAYLOR WYLIE " Bill " " Senator " Dayton, Ohio WITH a smile on his lips and am- bition in his heart, there essayed forth from the comforts and se- curity of Beta Fraternity life a man with a yearning for things Nautical. Possessing self- confidence, the first requisite to any under- taking, and a line needing little cultivation, Bill has successfully steered an unerring course. Endowed with foresight and level headed- ness, he has never been subjugated by the fair sex. However, his appeal is broadcast in his every movement. This is manifest whenever he makes his entrance into any mixed gather- ing. His delights do not end in entertaining the femmes. He is an ardent lover of an evening spent at a properly laden table sur- rounded with rollicking friends. It is on these occasions that he never fails us with his well-known dry humor. Amiable and congenial under the most try- ing circumstance Bill has proven himself a shipmate from the keel up. 2 P. O. , Wrestling 4, 3; Crew 2, 1. Track 2 ; 2 P. O.

P ge Two Hundred Forty-six WALTER WILLIAM STROHBEHN " Doc " " Walt " Davenport, Iowa SOME men are born athletes, others have unusual literary capabilities, and occa- sionally we meet the rare individual pos- sessing the perfect personality, and then still more rarely do we encounter that lovable genius possessing a perennial sense of humor. It is only once in a lifetime that we are for- tunate enough to know a man possessing all these characteristics. And hence it is with Doc —athletic— intellectual— cheerful— and above all a gentleman. A veritable Proteus. Despite his versatility, Doc " hides his light under a bushed " ; hence his omnivorous reading is unsuspected save by a few, and his athletic accomplishments are tied up in a stature as- signed to the " Sand-blowers. " But we all know the lovable cheerful exterior, the in- genuous display of " savoir-faire " when needed in an emergency, followed by the inevitable recapitulation. Doc ' s liabilities are few, but in justice, one should be mentioned: he has thoroughly, and yet, strangely enough, willingly committed himself. But this handicap has not prevented other pleasant pursuits of a Paphian nature whenever the opportunity presented itself. Ashore or afloat Doc ' s many-sided person- alis will be much in evidence, and we envy those who will be his shipmates. DAVID ALBERT STRETCH " Dave " " Aloysious " " Joe " Trenton, New Jersey DAVE is one of the few men of our acquaintance who can talk ceaselessly and yet say something. Behind the light, lovable exterior of savoir-faire and joie- de-vivre combined, there are earnestness and diligence. Song has ever been his forte. AH our entertainments tending toward the musical including Chapel, have always been enriched by his deep baritone. The unusual combina- tion of an artistic temperament with organiz- ing ability won him the editorship of the Lucky Bag. The " stroke, " " stroke, " " stroke, " on the river was too strong a call to resist and every year Dave has answered it. His hobbies are radios and radiators. Reams of literature are eagerly devoured, but all the literature in the world could not cover half the range his conversation does. Versatile, capable, likable Dave, always ready to belittle trouble, ever willing to solve our difficulties — his place in our hearts is secure. The first hasty estimate that hedonism was his one doc- trine has been indubitably disproven. Associa- tion with him in daily duties, trouble, elation, toil and happiness led us to the conclusion that his foibles are indeed few. Clever and conscientious — astute and ambi- tious — these few words characterize Dave as no volume could.

" Bobby ' Baltimore, Maryland WHEN Bobby arrived at No. 2 Gate on the morning of June 14, 1926, he little expected to make such a brilliant record at the Academy. The nearness of his home to the entrance of Bancroft Hall only increased his desire to become an officer and that vision was never dimmed during the next four years. Plebe year went off with a bang both in his studies and in athletics. He gained a star of academic excellence and the position as pitcher on the baseball team. It was during that year that he pitched the famous no-hit game against a Washington team. Youngster and Second Class years found Bob continuing his record on successively higher levels. It was then, particularly, that he discovered himself in his element, mathe- mathics. One memorable month he stood one in the class, and another he passed the exam with a cold 4.0. These two achievements had been his cherished desires. But the fact that Bobby was a " shark " in math did not lessen his interest in other activities that had nothing to do with books. He continued his baseball record, maintaining his usual speed and cleverness. Bobby will always be remembered by his classmates for his individuality, generosity and the steady course he steered toward the com- pletion of a successful four-year cruise at the Academy. FRANCIS HUBERT WILLIAMS " Hube " " ]oe " " Bill " Colorado Springs, Colorado " A ' n l ' 1 ' s corner ! gentlemen, we have r Hub Williams " — This would be, perhaps, as fitting as possible an in- troduction for Joe, for he has fought his way through life continuously. He ' s a fighter at heart! The entrance examination battle over, Joe made a name for himself during Plebe sum- mer by winning the 135-lb. company cham- pionship. From then, his rise has been steady and continuous. As captain of the Plebe box- ing team, further laurels were his from which he derived no small amount of pride. Achievement upon achievement, honor upon honor, these have been the lot of Joe, to come to a crescendo when he fought his way to the intercollegiate boxing championship crown. In the words of " Spike Webb " — a real champ ! " Joe ' s philosophy of life has embraced the desire to attain knowledge rather than grades — to know, not merely to be known to know. Literature, as distinct from " reading. " has been his chief avocation. They are making a Marine of him. And whether in Nicaragua, Pago Pago, or " on the far China Station, " that organization of fighters has added to its roll — a fighter. t-Vfx Three Stripes , Baseball 4. 3. 2, I. M. P.

" Bill " " Tis " " Wa-wa " Saugatuck, Michigan BILL came to us from the great forests of northern Michigan. Fun-loving though he was and naturally still is, it wasn ' t long before we found out some of his more serious qualities. During Plebe summer he began to show his athletic inclina- tions, by exhibiting his heels to the field in his event in the track meets. In addition, any fall afternoon will find him trotting around the course through the cemetery, for Bill is one of the prominent members of the hill-and- dale squad, where his efforts have been re- warded with the coveted -N-. He is also an ardent reader and his shelves are always lined with the latest novels and publications. Or- ally, he is perhaps at his best. His out- standing characteristic is his every-ready will ingness to discourse on any and every sub- ject mentioned in any discussion, whether he knows anything about it or not. But Bill ' s cheerful philosophy will carry him over many a rough spot and, we feel sure, will serve him well throughout the rest of his career. SAM RANDALL " Brud " " Whitey " " Shorty " Trenton, New Jersey COMING from the capital of the state of New Jersey, Sam proudly assures us that it is the wonder city of the world. At times he almost convinces us that he is right. As the smoke wends its way upward from that evening study hour skag, his eye takes on a dreamy look. From past experience we know that that ' s a sure sign of thoughts of home, the old gang and how to crowd a life- time into a mere thirty days of September leave. He has a propensity for making good leaves — perhaps a flair for interesting liber- ties in any port. Though of the genus " Sand-blower. " he has made valiant efforts along athletic lines, which result in training table toast. Skill with a lacrosse stick and a type of underwater agility known only to experienced members of the suicide club have proven his athletic worth. Possessing a keen mind he easily stands near the top of his class and we are confident that he will be successful in anything which he may undertake. C. C. 4. 3, 2, 1; Track 4, 3, 2, 1 ; 1 P. O. M.

As some wag puts it, most of his five-feet eleven of bone and mus- cle seems concentrated above the shoulders as far as academics go. But let him chase you with a lacrosse stick or catch you unprepared in the pool and you ' d admit that every inch of that five-feet eleven was most forcibly pres- ent. His lack of interest in drills was prob- ably fostered by the thorough ground work, ac- quired in prep-school, in that somewhat dif- ficult feat of navigating a rifle. Two things, however, never seem to fail to strike a re- sponsive chord in Dix — good books and good music. With a book, a pipe, and a Victrola, time travels with flying footsteps. The knowledge and humor that find their way into his nimble and receptive mind in these hours of leisure have always been passed on through the media of Log, Trident, or Lucky Bag. In these, as well as in the Anchor Sections, he has always had a place with " Sutton " marked on it reserved for him. Few there are who have filled them as often and as well. JOSEPH ALLEN EDWARD O ' HANDLEY " Joe " " J. A. E. " " O ' Handle " Ridgewood, New Jersey JOE is one of the serious minded ones — in everything but his studies. It would break his back to open a text, but the way he devours novels is a shame. He needs five or six private authors to satisfy his voracious appetite in this direction; yet, woe is me, he stars. ' Twas ever thus. His one sure method of amusing an audi- ence is by climbing the rope in Mr. Sazama ' s emporium. Joe had a hard struggle getting Christmas leave Second Class year, because the top never seemed to get any nearer. Finally, after removing his shoes, and other details beyond the scope of his work, he groped his way to the little disc — and Ridge- wood. He hasn ' t dared look the gym in the face since. J. A. E. is a born radiator hound, asking no more of life than a book, some r adio parts, and nothing else to do. His eyes have not held up so well under the strain ; and some day a pitying populace will view him sitting on a convenient bench in the park squinting through a microscope, reading the latest radio news. 2 P.

A preparatory year at Marion Institute was quickly left behind and we sud- denly found him in the throes of Plebe sum- mer. Many friends he made, but a few are more than that. Among the sports, wrestling appealed to him as a man ' s sport in all sizes, and he early showed promise. In fact Mr. Schultz fairly waxes eloquent over him. After a most successful Plebe season, hard luck has dogged him continually. Wrestling, and winning, against Yale with a high fever and broken ribs landed him in the hospital Youngster year The middle of second class year found him out with a bad shoulder which held him back from well-deserved laurels. Where physical strength was not so helpful. Bo has used his unrivaled personality to pull himself through the difficulties of academics and femmes— both necessary evils. We will always look on you as a 4.0, Willie, and offer our congratulations to those who get you for a shipmate. Now, listen. Mister, you say " Sir, " not " San. " JOHN GRAFTON BURGESS " Jack " " Burgh " Minneapolis, Minnesota IT IS not surprising that Jack, ever on the go and bubbling over with life, ended his Prep school days and decided to make the Naval Academy his next stop. Being too im- portant to wait a year for an appointment, he headed for Hampton Roads and became a real sailor. The Prep class offered him no diffi- culty and we next see him embarking on a four-year cruise as a middie. They have been happy years and they could be nothing else for one so alive and full of fun. His unfailing sense of humor made Plebe year a series of funny experiences, when anyone else would call some of them anything but funny. " Burgie, " being of ideal build for a cox- swain, decided to show the boys just how a crew should be run. He did it so well that he made the varsity shell Youngster year. Since his first day out he has with unfailing enthusiasm lived in a world of shells and oars. His chief joy in life is telling some six-footer what a model oarsman should be. As a classmate Jack has been always ready to do his utmost to help anyone in any way whatever, academically or otherwise, and as a roommate he has been indispensable. Good luck. Jack, ' tis a lucky crowd that will get you for a shipmate. M. P. O. ; Wrestling 4, 3, 2, 1 ; Class Baseball 2 ; Gymkhana 4. " N " ; 2 P.

That slow drawl of his belied again and again his Northern extrac- tion. Then once more he stood out when Dago started and this was one tongue he spoke " as it should be spoke. " He likes to appear overwhelmed by the cares of a busy man but it takes little to penetrate beneath that veneer and bring forth the fun-loving lad that he is. When the years roll on. he will look back on the athletics of the Naval Academy and relate with linger- ing words the glory that was his as the dependable twirler of the Fighting Seventh. Two consecutive years as Color Company was due in no small way to Marrv ' s varied abilities. Slow and dependable, Marty is known as a man who can always be counted on in a pinch — one whose steady and conscientious endeavor will some day undoubtedly find their reward. DONALD JACOB SASS " Mike " " Ike " Baltimore, Maryland MIKE is one of the few men of the class that needs no biography. There has been no one who has been a con- temporary of Mike ' s who has not been an intimate friend. He is unusually gifted with a humor all his own — " I ' m proud to walk in the rain for my country, it ' s the only one I ' ve got. " When things are not breaking right and when the professional " gripes " are plying their illuminating trade, Mike ' s famous " Pebeco Smile " is always in evidence. The pseudonym, " Personality Boy, " fits Mike per- fectly. Anywhere and everywhere, whenever crowds may gather, he is always the center of attraction. He is one of the most agree- able and generous lads we know. His boxing record is but an outward and visible indica- tion of the true fighter along all lines that we know. He ' s a man we like voluntarily — it would be difficult not to — he is one that we respect — his attainments merit that — and he will always remain with us as a true friend and companion. 1 Two Stripes ; Track Squad 4, 3 ; Class Football 3. 2 , Gymkhana 4 ; Trident 4. 3, 2.

Page Two Hundred Fifly-two t JACK SUMNER SALISBURY " Lord " " Jack " Spokane, Washington THE pride of Spokane was Jack when he quitted the green hills to weather the rainy Annapolis Wednesdays (and other liberty days) and to be fitted into the mould of an officer. His Lordship has done his noble best to uphold the ancestral traditions during his four years ' sojourn midst these musty walls. There ' s nothing that Lord undertakes that s not well done (on both sides). His tastes apparently run in two channels; athletics and scholastic sports. He managed to help " bring home the bacon " playing in the Seventh Company basketball team, and along Varsity lines he earned an " N " on the bally old squash— I beg your pardon— tennis courts. The lesser athletic sports consist of a mean game of checkers and dashing ping-pong form. For four years, Lord has kept his re- lations with the fairer sex well hidden. But, although he ' s the clever boy, snaky suspicions keep bobbing up. For who can resist his breezy line? He can ever be found in the noisiest room in the alley, giving all comers a run for their money on any good story. He ' s the hand- some, heartv type that gets a real thrill out of life and we know he will be rewarded accordingly. HARRY JAMES VERHOYE " Eva " " Harry " West New York, New Jersey WITH the confidence of a typical sophisticated New Yorker, Harry- bought the Naval Academy the minute he entered the gates. His quiet, re- served manner nearly causes us to overlook him, but every time there is something doing he commands the situation. His struggles with demon Math always found him on top. Otherwise the academics fell before his steady advance. In the way of activities, Harry is the man behind the scenes, for he is fast proving a very efficient stage manager of the Masqueraders. During the spring months, Harry frequents the tennis courts. The lure of those courts down by the seawall have made him a track man as well as a tennis player. To be sure, the hops always find him pres- ent, either telling " the dear little thing " just what the Navy is, or looking on in that dignified stag manner. On the cruises, Harry seems to fit into the comfortable side of the battleship, missing no liberty parties, and just the man from whom to ask directions.

He knows somebody in every town and hamlet in Virginia; consequently social doings are his meat: — he eats ' em up and cries for more. Never misses a chance to drag, and occasion- ally two or three almost arrive for the same hop, necessitating a little fast headwork. His good looks and attractive personality are so irresistible that even the lack of an intro- duction has never been much of a handicap when he wanted a date. George is one of these all-around athletes we read about but seldom see. He has been out for, or thought of going out for, almost ever) ' sport known at the Naval Academy. He changes sports so often that he ' s never very sure himself just how he ' s going to get his daily workout. But he is always hammering away at some- thing, and it doesn ' t seem to matter to George whether it is lacrosse, auction, contract or Yo-Yo. Our Piute has two serious faults: his Ginny dialect and an unfortunate addiction to sleep. Nevertheless he ' s a pretty good fel- low and we ' ll drink his health any time — in anything — even though we don ' t like the stuff. LEONIDAS DIXON COATES, JR.

In addition he is a source of information and guidance to the lowly wooden at all times and upon all sub- jects. Beyond that he has no concern: " Hey, Bill, we ' ve an exam tomorrow.

From Plebe summer until graduation he has devoted his time to showing the Ac Dept. just how an anchor man should put the Indian sign over them. Not wooden, but just a devil-may-care spirit, who for three months prefers to make mon- keys out of the academics, then by dint of much effort, luck, kind profs, and Tecum- seh pull sat for another term. Hoot-Mon is a true gentleman, honest, kindly, courteous, a great believer in Lifes Beneficence. He possesses a courteous and romantic way with the ladies which has led him into many an embarrassing situation, some terminating in a farewell such as, " I hope your Mother will like me. " His affairs of this nature would fill many books, but Mack seldom mentions them; he leaves that for his friends to do. Let us hope that he does not soon lose himself in this unofficial art and allows some fair damsel to lead him forth on the seas of Matrimony. JOHN ELLIS EDWARDS " Tiny " " Ed " " Jack " Waynesville, North Carolina ONE score and swabo years ago there was brought forth upon this earth a new son. To gratify his love of adventure, he sought these classic shades at the early age of six- teen summers. The maturity shown in the physiognomy above is not that of years but rather of experience. Experiences are one of Ed ' s long suits, and they improve with age. Besides crashing through for the B-Squad, Ed has been a constant source of discourage- ment to all prospective heavyweight boxers. The glory of athletic endeavor doesn ' t appeal to him nearly so much, however, as the chance of moving from training table to training table. Ed is very much like Napo- leon ' s Army. Ed ' s Southern drawl, proverbial throughout the Regiment, is irresistible to the Femmes. His romantic characteristics are a constant source of worry to all his friends. It is our fear that he will soon succumb to the fatal urge of matrimony if radical steps aren ' t taken. The Service may carry Ed away from our eyes but never from our hearts.

Wildcat is a fellow as intensely likable as it is possible for a man to be. He is built of stern stuff, a warm heart, and a generosity that expresses itself in every direction, even to offering his roommate ' s last pack of " skags " to the smokeless individual. He can borrow a shirt from a classmate and make it appear that the classmate is being favored. His blarney is qualified by his statement that " Half the lies the Irish tell aren ' t true. " His laughter is a joy to hear, and he gets a thrill out of music, dancing, femmes, crew and almost every other thing he does or sees. He is continually certain of hitting trees, yet never does; he enjoys brushing his teeth, and is never more than half-dressed when the bell rings. Easy-going yet not indolent, often worried but seldom gloomy, a smile for anyone who is willing to smile back, happy-go-lucky yet sure of him- self, Wiggles is the ideal wife.

DAVID DELOS HAWKINS ' Dave " " Hawk " " Cockey " Spokane, Washington A WILD, enthusiastic lad from the West came to us a few days after the be- ginning of June, 1926, to show the Ac departments that Washington just couldn ' t be beaten. Dave made many friends during Plebe summer and caused his share of heart flut- terings among the Crabs. Dave has devoted much of his time and talent to the Masqueraders, Trident and Log, to say nothing of his somewhat boisterous support of the " old Nivee " in all athletic events. But it is in a certain memorable por- trayal for the Masqueraders, during the hectic days of Plebe year, that we like to recall his activities. Interested, by nature, in things beyond the routine affairs of life, Dave has not always found those who could or would follow him in his flights; but those of us who know him best have learned to appreciate his depth and earnestness as well as the lighter side exhibited in winter afternoon " sessions. " Hawk has given us several scares concern- ing his eyesight, but he has managed to get the necessary 15-20 every time. A better friend and more loyal supporter than Dave cannot be found.

He uses to the full its opportunities to keep fit. Never aspiring to the glory and applause of a big athlete he plays a hard but quiet game of handball for his own amusement. If he ever is grouchy he takes it out in the weights or punching bags but never a word of it does he breathe to classmate for sympathy. In the spring he somehow but always unostenta- tiously obtains a tennis court and wields the racquet with an educated wrist. Many there are who, after much secretive- ness and elaborate precautions, eloign from the Mess Hall an eclair or other dainty and forthwith beat their bosoms and say " Oh, great am I, for, see, have I not checkmated the powers that be? " And a few there are who go their wavs and say nothing, vet withal take unto themselves prerogatives which would make these boasters sweat the cold sweat of terror. Nor do their names adorn that fatal list. Thev are the truly great, for they are artists. Of such is Harmon. Intimate with none but a friend of all, he has proven himself a man to know and appre- ciate. 2 P. O. 2 P. O. Page Two Hundred Fifty-eight VICTOR EMMANUEL RIVA " Vic " " King " Charleroi, Pennsylvania FROM the moment the mayor, the band, the female population and the constable of Charleroi bid King goodby, he has been busy. Plebe year Vic spent bis time starring and telling upperclassmen how to pronounce the name of his home town. Youngster year he aspired to track and would have been a star quarter-miler, except that he couldn ' t run fast enough. Second and First Class year he made the boys on the 150-pound crew hustle for their seats, except on Wednesdays, Saturdays, rainy days and when he was dragging. King ' s outlook on life is rosy. He can laugh at anything, including himself, any time, and anywhere. He can outlast the longest of " Bull " sessions and, if he hasn ' t fallen asleep, generally manages to get the last word in. Coupled with this is an uncanny ability to stay out of trouble and dope out problems on anything. And as many " Crabs " will tell you, his way with the women — Oh my! Look at that girl ! get out of the Navy ' Come on boys — Let ' s Here ' s hooing he doesn ' t do it as long as we are around. Voluble, lovable Vic. A rare man, indeed, a combination of unobtrusive ability coupled with effervescing personality. What would we do without him? JAMES OLIVER VOSSELER " Abie " " Jimmie " Jacksonville, Illinois JIMMIE steamed in from the middlewest; the wise easterners said: " Well, another Babbitt " ; but they were wrong. Jimmie didn ' t go around back-slapping or boosting; he was just human. We soon found out that there was a wealth of savoir faire behind his quizzical smile; we soon learned to like him. There are many ways of finding the proverb- ial outlet for one ' s excess energy. In fact there are ways and ways. Jimmie found some. He stood by the company guns in athletics; his midwinter workouts are inevitable; his corking good bridge has been an inspiration to the lesser fry; his annual tropic tans have been the envy of all his shipmates; he has long displayed the hop committee ' s badge; his cits are choice and impeccable; he has a gentleman ' s love for a beautiful horse, and a beautiful girl. But a few details cannot portray a man ' s character. Jimmie is the kind, — well, he ' s the kind of a man you ' d like to serve with, or for. We can ' t point to the future; but we can imagine some poor fisherman in his Asiatic sampan frightened out of his wits by the sudden appearance of a big sub from the depths of the sea. But then Abie would be at the conning tower hatch — and Abie ' s smile would be reassuring, for like him, his smile is — human. 2 P. O. Crew 2 ; Star 4. 2 P. O.: Hop Committee 1. Page Two Hundred Fifty-nine JACK SIDNEY DORSEY " Latissimus " " Johnny " Jacksonville, Florida JACK was keeping up with Paul Jones while most of us were still prepping and handled his craft so skilfully as to sail in here on his merits. And merits have been his ever since; in fact, he damns de-merits and goes full speed ahead. From the very start he has been right at home in this man ' s Navy, and as an officer and a gentleman he ' ll be hard to beat. And, at his request, we ' re changing that i famous slogan " a girl in every port. " You see, he hasn ' t been up the Mississippi yet. In this " Garden of Eden " he has garnered liberally from that tree of knowledge the fruit whereof is all but forbidden by the Academic departments. He also has circled the " Christmas tree " in an ever-widening radius because he insists on celebrating that holiday in his own Sunny South. We have not yet begun to write of all the good opinions and well-wishings Jack will take with him to the fleet, and would tire of so doing, not when we ' re ready — we never would be — but only because this space is limited. JOHN HULME " Jack " " Hulmef Boston, Massachusetts JACK hails from the section where men are savoirs and the girls . . . just girls. However, we are proud of him because he is one exception to the Massachusetts tradition " Star and Stagnate. " No doubt he has the ability, but being one of those rare " Good Scouts " he declines to mar a sunny disposi- tion and winning personality with an ambition to. star. Although Jack isn ' t one of the " Big Fel- lows " his athletic accomplishments have been of a high caliber and are an index to Jack ' s makeup. He developed into a star halfback who would be more than an asset to any soccer team. " Speed, dash and accuracy " de- scribe his play. His election to the captaincy of the soccer team did not come as a surprise. In spite of his quiet manner and true modesty one always knows when he is around because of his steadfast, worth-while personality. His equanimity is never dis- turbed and he takes an irritating inconven- ience with a wise tolerance and calm forti- tude which is like oil on the turbulent waters of his classmates.

A HUGE Viking from America ' s own Scandinavia, Sidney came to the Naval Academy to prove to the world that all the salt, increased by the centuries of sea roving of his ancestors, had not been leached out by the logging camps and farms of Minnesota. Football, wrestling, and Academics have been Sid ' s big three through his four years, and his robust frame and ultimate graduation will prove to you the measure of his success. Somewhat shy of women and a stag at most of the hops, Sid manages to get several letters per week that don ' t jibe with his red mike stories. And as none of us has seen Sid home on leave we cannot say, but we do know that he has lost no time in catching the train at the end of every cruise. " St. Paul, here I come. ' ' Sid gave the Senoritas a real treat; but despite Europe ' s undoubted supremacy as the playground of the world, no one has been able to shake Sid of his conviction that after all nothing can touch St. Paul. Perhaps a moon- light evening at the Casino — but, well, that would be telling! Misfortune haunted Sid on the return voy- age from Europe, and as a result he sallied forth on a sick leave and his graduation was postponed a year. We will be waiting for him in the fleet, and when he arrives a royal welcome will be his! DAVIS WING OLNEY " Dave " " Wing " Ludington, Michigan DAVE hails from the shores of Lake Mich- igan and since he can remember he has been around boats of one kind or an- other; so it was only natural that after two years of military life, he was easily convinced that the Navy was his place in life. His con- tinued success bears evidence of a choice wisely made. Wing is a snake by habit rather than by choice, judging from his letters; but never- theless he has his great moments in Dahlgren Hall. He seldom drags but is always ready to rate the other fellow ' s drag and is quite the connoisseur of feminine beauty. His musical control and talent is superb. Once he was told, " You just whisper the words, " and con- sequently his wives have never been bothered. Dave has a few favorite expressions, " Now the best counter for this is a left to the ■ , " or " Have you ever known me to tell you wrong? " and sometimes, " Leggo my nose! " Being the possessor of a large amount of self-confidence, Dave has succeeded in keep- ing off the trees and in doing so has not dis- turbed his most tranquil mind in the least. " That ' s only a monthly tree. I ' m sat for the term. I secured after the first month. " 2 P. O. Football, B Squad. 3. Wrestling 3. 2 P. O. Page Two Hundred Sixty-one ROYCE LAWRENCE GROSS " Milt " " Googy " " Roy " New York MILT was born in Brooklyn and had his first sea experience when his parents took him across to Europe. Residing on returning in White Plains, New York, he graduated from high school there, but the lure of the sea, which had been implanted in him, finally brought him to the Naval Acad- emy. Having a natural ability for grasping things, (not in Jimmy Valentine style) Roy has never been very much pressed by studies. He would rather argue about love, religion, and science than " bone " and his academics have conse- quently been neglected. The academy holds no worries for him, however, and he always stands near the middle of his class. His versatility has caused him never to be satisfied with one sport. He has tried a bit of boxing and wrestling, a little soccer, and he has shot with the rifle team. As an all-year- round diversion, however, billiards has claimed him as its own and his contributions to the Close Harmony Trio has added greatly to the sensational success of this worthy organization. Milt can find humor in any situation in which he finds himself. The ability to always look upon the sunny side of life has made him many loyal and true friends. He is one of the boys and cannot be re- moved from their ranks. His humor and constant skylarking kept him from " stripes " but the gold is there. PAUL FREDERICK HEERBRANDT " Polly " " Hairbrains " Cleveland, Ohio AFTER starring at West Technical High School of Cleveland, Polly came here full of " joie de vivre " with the best intentions of batting the academics. But he discovered towards the end of Plebe year that the assigned courses were not so easily- assimilated as he had expected. Since then he has been waging a fierce battle, principally with the Steam and Mathematics Departments, and not without reward. It is a delight to hear him chortle gleefully as the end of each term rolls around and he finds he has again successfully held the monsters known as academics at bay. Paul has dabbled — not to say dribbled — in basketball, baseball and crew, being most suc- cessful in the l ast. An untimely physical ailment, however, prevented him from earning his letter in that sport. But as tenor and guiding spirit of the Close Harmony Trio Polly has endeavored to bring solace to all within hearing. It is Paul ' s firm conviction that the simultaneous closing of scores of transoms on the opening chord of " In The Evening " is merely caused by the sharp night air. Who shall be heartless enough to dis- illusion him? Whoever has gone ashore with Pollv knows that he is a good sport and a noble and generous companion. Can anything better be siid of a man than " I ' d like to make a liberty with him " ? 2 P. O. ; Gymkhana Class Baseball 3; Class Wrestling 3 ; Riae 2. M. P.

Page Two Hundred Sixty-two I WILLIAM HENRY STEWART " Monk " " Boppo " " Bill " New York, New York BILL ' S philosophy of life has ever been " live and let live. ' ' He believes that " life, liberty and the pursuit of hap- piness " are the inalienable rights of mid- shipmen as well as of a Jeffersonian Demo- crat. Let someone interfere with that con- viction and they have one hundred and fifty pounds of enthusiastic disagreement to con- tend with. The desire to reduce certain portions of an otherwise athletic figure lured him to the gym. From this modest and unassuming be- ginning he has developed into a contender for Inter-collegiate honors. A dogged de- termination in the face of academic and ex- ecutive handicaps has had its reward. If he gets his teeth in an idea the only way to re- move the idea is to remove the teeth. Monk is not long on conversation but when he starts rattling off the thesaurus he does it to such a turn that even Addison could scarcely deplore. Boppo falls in love regularly and, strange as it may seem, is really serious about it. Few men couple true ability with an un- ostentatious performance as does Monk. He is quiet, good-natured and easy to get along with. We respect him for his straightfor- ward, sportsmanlike quaitities. and love him for his perfect equanimity and contentment. GEORGE MITCHELL CHAMBERS " George " " Potty " Marquette, Michigan GEORGE is a true " husky " from the forest-clad hills of Michigan. His great love for the sea and his career as a naval officer is probably most readily explained by his Army background and early life of association with military projects. He carries the Navy in his heart though, and any argument " pro and con " is never efficiently settled until George has put in his " con " ideas. Crew was the long-sought for outlet of some of his brute strength. Strenuous work, strict training, stamina — nuff said — George has his seat in the shell. The little praise that accompanied it was a detail. Optimistic and cheerful, he proves the old adage that " discipline begins at home. " His is the placidity of the Irish setter and the tenacity of the English bulldog. There is true gold in the man. The quality of it is proven by association. He is a friend worth valuing and fighting for. We can say no more to epitomize his character than the ap- propriate phrase — " true gold. " Some of the adversities of the practice cruise often show a man in a light previously un- suspected. Suffice it to say, then, that Potty, in a squad aboard ship, was the Potty of initia- tive and resourcefulness; all the trouble in the world could not dim his enthusiasm. Gym 4, 3. 2, 1 M. P.

CONN " Dick " Boone, Iowa FOR some reason or other this corn-fed child of Iowa decided he could hear Sam Browne and leather puttees calling: West Point was the only place to go. Later, though, he changed his mind; he thought he ' d look better in blue with gold trimmings. Almost all his athletic ability, and quite enough, consisted in getting his knees skin- ned, his arms bruised, his shins whacked and his very frame jarred to its foundations play- ing lacrosse. However, it was good la- crosse, lots of fun, and earned him worth- while privileges. It seems that there ' s always something for him to be arranging and worrying about. It ' s his fate to be " allowed " to manage things, and, owing to inherent good nature, that ' s per- fectly all right; it ' s no trouble at all — much! Another of his afflictions is a penchant for conducting orchestras; he ' s led them all. They have all, to the rhythm of his waving coat- hanger, ground out " strains " on the Victrola. No one knows whether it ' s for personal edi- fication or playful irritation of the wit- nesses. With a good, impetuous sense of hu- mor, and a high appreciation of an occasional siege of clowning, Dick ' s attempts to enter- tain are always successful, both to himself and the " victim. " And this sunniness, and friend- liness, and general congeniality with every- one are the traits which make him " Dick.

Possessing a touch of the clown, Lot has made it agreeable for all those around him by his continually clever imitations and antics, his witty remarks, and his ability to make the best of all things all the time. However, Lot doesn ' t act " coo-coo " (his own words) all the time. When the occa- sion demands, Lot is a willing worker, and does his job well. Further than that, he is always willing to do a part of a friend ' s task if his help is needed. Perhaps to save his wind for the sprints in the varsity Swimming Meets, but more probably for personal reasons. Lot never smokes, and he will be found to up- hold this and other of his ideas before op- position. Two Stripes ; Lacrosse 4. 3. 2, 1 ; Gym 4. Three Stripes ; Swimming 4, 3, 2, 1 ; Choir 4, 3. 2.

So he came to us years ago steeped in the traditions of the " Corps, " and with a varied assortment of tales from Panama and distant Army posts. Here his life has been no less full. He has tasted of academics, athletics, discipline, and all of our pleasures. Through all, he has shouldered his one hundred and eighty odd pounds of good humor. Perhaps you would like a fight, to bet on something, or merely some advice? No mat- ter. You will find Judge on the bed — snoring contentedly " You ' re up, ' Pal ' — How ' s for a match? " Serious? cynical, but but " What At times, and then occasionally only as a self-imposed mask; other Navy could you do this in? " Good natured? Always and unfailingly. Ready at all times to lend a helping hand, or to " run " someone. You can ' t " run " him — life is one big joke to the judge. " Don ' t feel bad, I was a boy once myself.

" DONALD WHILEY TODD " Budge " Newport, R. I. EVEN in this turbulent age there are still a few of the Old School left, still some to whom the Finer Things are the nat- ural things. The seamy side hasn ' t touched Budge. He is a seaman. He has served his time on the tops ' l yards; and the lee ratlines and the lubber ' s hole have never known him. Budge comes from a Navy family. Tradi- tions are of the essence of him: sentimental, he calls it, but in reality it ' s just devotion to the things that were, and he ' s better for it. And where was there ever a great soldier who did not wear a lady ' s favor? The Service is his ruling passion. The Academics have not always been kind to him; and he had just a little rather do it to- morrow than tonight. But when " Affirma- tive " goes fluttering up to the fore and the anchor cables are roaring in — he has no peer. Courteous even to courtliness, thoughful and considerate, yet without affectation, he ably explodes the cynical theory that " an of- ficer and a gentleman " denotes two persons. " One of the boys " in every sense, yet his mere presence establishes the plane of things. Genial, gentlemanly, a little reserved: He ' s " One of the Ones. " Long may you wave, Budge ! 2 P.

Page Two Hundred Sixty-file JOHN TUCKER HAYWARD ' Chick " " Jack " " Wild Bill " New York City THE Great Neck Fast Mail bore this serious-faced young lad toward the Naval Academy while he was still in his early teens. Despite his handicap in years he was well able to take care of him- self, and soon became popular with his class- mates because of his refusal to be bothered about his smooth cheeks and his nickname " Chic. " He became a member of the Water Polo team Plebe year and stuck by his guns in spite of skinning his nose on the bottom of the pool countless times and in spite of having to be hauled off the bottom by his teammates once or twice. His innocent-appearing young face has al- ways supplied him with plenty of drags, and he seems to be able to shift his affections from one to another without visible effort. His great weakness, however, has been a well-known Philadelphia firm, and part of an allowance went to them each month as a payment for pins, etc., given away when " Gee kid, I met the sweetest gal this leave. Down in Bermuda. " He did not let his weakness for the fair sex interfere with his studies, however, and his name will be found in the upper part of his class where it has been since Plebe year. He does not mind lending a hand when he can and is alwavs willing to help a fellow out. In short. Jack is an all around good boy, a regular fellow, and we all wish him luck. HARRY PEASLEE BADGER " Airy " " Harry " Malone, New York OUT of the far North, from a veritable outpost of civilization, came this lad. He battled the Academic Departments tooth and nail his Plebe year and rose to the occasion by downing a math re-exam. It has been easy sailing since then; not a savoir by any means but able to keep in the good graces of Tecumseh with a minimum of work. West- ern stories, with a rattling good mystery tale now and then, manage to take up his spare time. His curly black hair with its scattering of gray has thrilled many a cruise girl. At heart he is a Red Mike, his only weakness being the girl back home. His banjo playing has never been appreciated and a little bit of it always went a long way. His generosity has made of him a target for those men habitually out of skags. The ability he pos- sesses of applying the proper amount of work at the right time, coupled with his genial nature, will get him far; and we envy the men who may be lucky enough to be ship- mates with Harry out in the China station with a low water supply. Being a man of imagination, and having a background formed by constant reading, he is an enjoyable companion. His genial disposi- tion, his constant and assiduous effort towards improvement, his tactful sympathy and under- standing, and his unswerving loyalty make him a friend in a million. 5 Trident 4. 3 ; Water Polo 4, 3, Rifle 4, 3 ; Hop Committee 1 ; Two Stripes; Gymkhana 4. 2.

Scion of a nautical line he felt not at all out of place amid the monuments and relics of by- gone Naval glory. On the contrary, he felt at home and resolved not to be dislodged till he was prepared to serve his country in the noble manner of a Jones, a Decatur or a Dewey. Commencing in the first days of Plebe sum- mer, he accumulated a vast store of practical knowledge and experience in the professional subjects which will be of great use to him and his shipmates. No bookworm, to be sure, but a keen judge of what will be of actual service and an eager student of these subjects. One of his pet hobbies is the read- ing of stories with themes of action or ro- mance. He is always cheerful, even in the Nata- torium. There he cheerfully scuttles those who dare oppose Navy in Water Polo, as the Morgan of old jovially consigned his victims to the locker of one D. Jones. In brief, he is a real man, lazy sometimes, enthusiastic at others, always quick-wirted. He is to be envied for his broad shoulders, straight back, and comely " phiz. " JOSEPH ALOYSIUS RUDDY, JR. " Joe " New York City, N. Y. A SHORT while ago there came into our midst " young Kid Battling Joe, " who at once made many friends. Looking towards the bright side of life was not enough for him, he wanted to reach out a helping hand to those in a rut. Remember prior to Christmas leave Second Class year how many times his life was " saved " during our life-saving tests so that many of us could depart that Saturday noon on leave? Somewhat like a showman, he has kept us amused by his spontaneous humor and his quick wit, not only in everyday life, but he has had an active part in many " Happy Hours " as well as in our own Plebe Show. Fighting in there all the time he has been able to hold his own against the Academic Departments, but he has especially scintillated in athletics. Formerly a young protege of the New York Athletic Club he has followed in the footsteps of his Dad and passed many pleasant hours in the natatorium, winning games for Navy where he used to win them against Navy. The water was not the only place that he excelled, for during the sum- mer months he would be on the main deck aft slinging a mean pair of gloves around in the manner of his Irish ancestors. 2 P.

But he thought the gold braid of an Admiral would better suit him than the staid frock-coat and two- gallon hat that makes the office of the other dignitary. " Russ " is an authority on pulling sat. The end of each term finds him coaxing the little molecules and integrals into the limelight and crashing through with a glorious two point five. His earnest desire to graduate, coupled with a determined will to win, has kept him one jump ahead of the Academic Board. His rwo ambitions are to wear an expert rifleman ' s emblem on his sleeve and to gradu- ate. Boning has kept him so busy that he has not had much time for athletics, although the small bore team found him working hard Plebe year, until the " Acs " finally submerged him. In the summertime, however, he is one of the few irreconcilables. always to be found pulling weights or doing stoop falls on the main deck aft under the sweltering heat of a tropical sun.

' " This son of Massachusetts might have been consistent in his love of literary art. Plebe year letters came from twenty or thirty sources. Youngster year, however. Bill seemed to sur- render. At least the percentage of blue let- ters from heaven (Baltimore) began to in- crease. Bill was quite a basketball player in his high school days; but the Sub Squad has kept him from playing here. From the way he fights the water he should have been a boxer. This, however, has not kept him from giving a good account of himself in cross-country and track. Bill is a quiet sort of a chap who either sleeps or writes letters during his study hours, but always finishes with the first. He knows all the tricks of the first sections in Math. If you take the trouble to seek him out, Bill is a very interesting companion. Your first problem is to beat through that •wall of reserve. Once in, you will find your- self fully repaid for your efforts. l P. O.: Small Bore 4. 1 P. O Track 4; Masqueraders 2 C. C. 4, 3; Page Two Hundred Sixty-eight BAYLIES VOORHEIS CLARK " B. V.

Steam, the curse of his classmates, is his true love. It is a valuable aid to him, for the work he does in Isherwood Hall gives him a grasp and practical knowl- edge of Steam that has put him in the first section. Though not a savoir, his quick mind and retentive memory give him suffi- cient time for magazines and letter-writing. He is a valuable and willing company athlete besides having a berth on the B-squad. His most lovable trait is a true generosity. He cannot say " No " to any plea, and his " big-heartedness " is free and sincere. His sunny good nature and friendly disposition make him a man to be happy with. CHARLES BATES BROOK " Charlie ' " Joe ' " Red " Baltimore, Maryland ALTHOUGH born in Pittsburgh, Joe soon overcame this disadvantage by becoming a " Baltimore Boy. " Baltimore is the fairest city in the world, to say nothing of the universe. That is, of course, if you ask Joe. He is just as loyal to that city of cities as the day is long, and you know your- self some days are terribly long. This is just a specific example of his loyalty. When Joe is given something to do, something to uphold, or, in fact, most any- thing, he will see it to a finish, provided of course it is the right thing to do. Joe is a studious person and takes every advantage of his opportunities to study. This does not deny him a good sense of humor, and he is always ready with a smile or laugh. As to athletics, our Joe is a consistent wrestler and a one-mi ler in track. Cross- country has also claimed his attention. Studious, serious and persevering with a definite objective before him, Joe steers stead- fastly on his chosen course. B Squad 4, 2 P. O. i; Star 4 ; 2 P.

About these things we built our carefree lives ; under blue skies, before fresh breezes, we fashioned our realism. In competition on court, in tank, on track or diamond we solved our problem. Late summer found us healthy and happy; we waited patiently for wealth and wisdom.

Academics were forgotten, tor there was a football team ; cuffs and garters we forgot, extra duty plagued us, but there was a football team. The weak and sub squads hung over us like mighty ogres; the weekly trees invariably found us, Abou-ben Adam-like, heading the list— we were carried along in the mad rush of events like leaves in a torrent, our protests were muffled in pillows, fell unheeded on soulless green benches. 1 P7 had its stripes, 1928 is milk, 1929 its cut-off, and 1930 its trip to Chicago.

We looked back, smiled a whimsical smile at the plebes that " ' Tain ' t no ' more, " we greeted the family, and the O. A. O. A few days and we would he at sea where sea-faring men belong.

On the Atlantic and western side of Canal. the Panama WE passed the fortnight, which came upon the heels of the frivolities of June Week, with strong hearts and weak stomachs. After our first " Mothers, Sisters and Sweethearts " we woke in the arms of a nation ' s might in Hampton Roads and manned the rail in blues for a Presidential Review. Then steaming ever southward, the twin cities of Cristobal and Colon finally met our land-hungry gaze. Like children in a strange land we wan- dered about from Colon to Panama learning to say " how much " and " too much " as it should be said, finding something new at the Hotel Washington, amazed at the brazen gaiety of Kelly ' s Ritz, gasping at the crumbling ruins of old Panama. Then came our first trip through the Canal. We swarmed the brick parapets of Gatun, Mira Flores and Pedro Miguel, wondering at the im- mensity of it all and questioning what made it work. Colon and the cities of the tropics were as the fairy cities of Aladdin — strange — new — interesting. We gathered tales equaling the nonchalant yarns of the graduated class. It was our trial run, so to speak, and we knew not yet our limitations. " Affirmative? 1 at the dip 1 - VV We man the rail for — And at last our first port — Colon Page Two Hundred Eighty-two i ' ft iirH lAt i « T . y» - SAN DIEGO Principal port of Southern California. Excellent harbor, and right across the border from Tia Juana. f Balboa Park Mission Beach TEN endless days with nothing but the dim coast of Mexico on the horizon brought with them the acquisition of our first " salt. " Daily work with the " religious bricks, " seamanship lectures, and gun drills marked our metamorphosis into hardy seamen. Then the palms of San Diego appeared and surprises were quick to follow. How dif- ferent from the cities of the East! A party at Balboa Park and dances at Mission Beach served to acclimate us to the customs and beauties of California. At every theater, a midshipman ' s uniform meant admission, and needless to say, at every theater there was a goodly audience of mid- shipmen. The Hotel del Coronado and Coronado Beach were beautiful and popular and then there was always Tia Juana, just over the hori- zon, beckoning with an irresistible finger. Here again we found some- thing different. In the short week though, San Diego — the city of Mis- sion architecture and palm trees — faded somewhat into oblivion and we yearned for something larger — the queen city of the west, San Francisco. Eventually the fog- topped Golden Gate peered from the morning mists. And up the coast Page Two Hundred Eighty-three ■ SAN FRANCISCO Established by Spanish missions in 1776. Situated on a marvelous bay — 50 miles in length. Wv Here, frigid days in July were no idle joke, and fog, wind and a sea breeze made our watches extremely unpleasant. In San Fran- cisco, everyone became cosmopoli- tan. One day we thought the movies had moved to Yerba Buena, but we found that the beauties pres- ent were co-eds of Stanford and Southern Cal and the Junior League girls of San Francisco — just as charming and attractive as the stars would have been. Then it was easy. Everyone had a date — except those who had two — and every day, after the sides of beef were stowed safely on board ship, and the cabbages and cucumbers finally put below, each middy started looking for a new ad- dress. Then there were Chinatown, the Redwood Forests, the Mayor ' s Reception, and nearby Stanford — Full vivid days and pleasant fleet- ing nights! San Francisco — the smooth, flower-studded gateway to the West — quite won our hearts. We expected something harsh and businesslike, and found instead a flirtatious, fascinating metropolis — as frivolous in its play as it was serious in its work.

Won- derful anchorage and only an hour from L. A. i California ' s Oil Fields Off once again THE climax of the cruise had passed. The homeward bound pennant was eagerly hoisted and we again headed southward. Then two days of deck scrubbing, boiler clean- ing, and turret painting and we put into San Pedro. San Pedro was merely a name — a stepping stone to Los Angeles. The innate and overpowering desire of the unin- itiated to behold the glories of film- dom were fulfilled. We gazed at screen stars, Beverly Hills and Hollywood — regretting that we had but " one week to give to our San Pedro. " Anticipating our every wish, we were invited to Universal City and other famous lots and saw and talked to some of the lumina- ries of Hollywood. We were then whisked away to the Cocoanut Grove at the Ambassador and eag- erly explored the byways and out- of-the-way places of filmdom. Cata- lina Island, the Capri of the Pacific, welcomed some of us with its em- erald waters and perfect scenery. Beautifully tanned, healthy girls led us about — proud of their perfection and of that of their home-land — eager to show us everything — show- ering on us parties and dances. A tropical magic about the place made possible by modernity! And to work Page Tuo Hundred Eighty-five PANAMA Capital and chief city of the Repub- lic of Panama. Founded by Pedro Arias de Avila in 1519. PANAMA again welcomed us with open Hindu shops. The chosen few that had any available cash, re- turned to the ships laden with shawls made in New Jersey and shipped to Panama via China. No one returned without a panama hat. Amber cigarette cases and ivory holders were universal equipment. We discovered the secret of the impregnability of the Canal, the guns mounted in the hills, the pat- tern of the Army-Navy war games, and the pleasant paradise that is American Balboa. Here the ships made fast to the dock and we trotted about Balboa in the crazy native vehicles (name them and they ' re yours), and we experienced the sweet insipidity of mangoes, and the unequaled perfection of Plant- er ' s Punch in the palm-shaded patios of the Cafe Internacionale. A warm southern sun — laziness and inertia — but these only served to point out the true value of iced drinks and the shade of Panama bushes. For it was here we learned the true blessing that is a siesta and the charm of a life where time means nothing.

The thirty-degree roll in the Carolina hurricane off Cape Hatteras soon faded into nothing more than a bad dream. Eager eyes peered into the distances about Chesapeake Bay and were finally rewarded by the sight of the sun- kissed Chapel dome. Countless small boats steamed at full speed toward the shore — sub-chasers with the bucket at the dip — motor sail- ers loaded to the " gun-nels " — gear — midshipmen — and clothes heaped in indiscriminate masses. And then the gay acclamations from the shore and youngster cruise returned to that limbo of all past cruises — Annapolis. The one-time capital of a gay colony, the red- bricked and white-pillared home of seafaring warriors smiles as it takes to its bosom once more the sea- weary wearers of the single diag.

Portland and its bay, its moon, its little chugging boats, its picturesque sails, its Cushing ' s Island, its de- lightful hosts. Old wine in new bottles, and again we lost our hearts. With some little hope of repaying the many kindnesses, we dressed ships a bit, waxed wooden decks, broke- out the band, coerced the Supply Officer, and had our tea. Motor launches brought guests from the landing, bluejackets rivaled Paul Whiteman, mess-boys served choice morsels, and Portland came en masse.

Hubbard Director THE, MASQUERADED 7 HE eerie strains of Grieg faded upon the air, musical chimes rang out softly, and the curtain was raised upon another MASQUERADER production— the twenty-second in a long series of successful shows. The play this time was Owen Davis ' clever farce-mystery, THE HAUNTED HOUSE, and it proved to be as popular with the Regiment as it was on Broadway during its long run there. The opening curtain went up on a dark stage. There was a brief pause, during which one was able to vaguely distinguish the interior of a room, then a silhouette appeared at one of the windows, opened it, and furtively entered the house. A horrible groan, followed by the awesome clanking of chains on metal, pierced the silence, the startled figure disappeared, the play was on. The widely diversified parts were capably taken by one of the best casts in years. Blaisdell, ' 32, the constable, was the outstanding comic character of the show, and Guilbert, ' 31, the naive milkman, ran him a close second; Rozea, ' 33, made a most attractive and talented heroine; Gentry, ' 30, brought to a fitting close three years of roles in the MASQUERADERS ' productions, and Hunt, ' 31, gained further laurels as an accomplished female impersonator; Salmon, ' 30, as a New York detective, and Longshore, ' 33, as the " lady in purple, " were equally good; while Heap, the chauffeur; Grant, the tramp; Steel, the father; Dorsett, the hero, and Frey, the groan, imparted thrills to the play by their splendid work.

Consequently, a musical drama was unfolded for the amusement (or otherwise) of the Regiment. Dave Stretch wrote the story of the play and the lyrics to some of the songs, and the music was ably directed by none other than the redoubtable " Red-eye " Taylor. " Sylphonia " could not be classed as a musical comedy, nor could it be termed an operetta. It was written with a view of utilizing to the best advantage the talent available — hence the necessity of executing the villainness in the first act ( " She " had to play with the N. A. 10 and the Mandolin Club in the Second Act)! The show was fortunate enough to have the services of " Fish " Salmon, " Dusty " Rhodes and " Jerry " Murphy. These gentlemen provided the lighter touches and were well received by the audience. The scene of the first act is laid in an army camp in the open country. The time is doubtful ; but it must have been a thousand years ago. Don Gladney, as Captain Trumpet, ushers in the singing Royal Army of Sylphonia to the strains of one of Victor Herbert ' s marches. After the song, the Army falls out and the Captain discusses the nation ' s sad plight. In the midst of the discussion Prince Sax appears in company with his newest weak- ness — Viola, the peasant girl. Viola was interpreted by — South, and what a woman! Blatch- ford played the part of Prince Sax, and his rendition of the local version of " My Hero " was admirable. After a few sights of the moon (H. D. — ; Parallax — ) by the Royal Astrono- mer ( " Fish " Salmon), it is decided that the time is ripe for a determined attack on the Rebels. The stage is cleared and the villain appears. The latter was " Bobo " Taylor, and as Oboe he left little to be desired; Harry Sosnoski appeared as Oboe ' s sinuous fiancee Cecilia — the actual cause of the nation ' s rum. Cecilia and Oboe acted out a love song, inter- spersed with dramatic thunder, which served to rack the nerves of all those present, and which would have caused any dramatic critic to gasp, die, and roll in his grave. Cecilia finally induces Oboe to plot sedition against his brother, Prince Sax, and as they are planning their insidious campaign they are surprised by the return of the victorious Royal Army. Oboe escapes, but poor Cecilia is " caught with the goods " and summarily electrocuted by the Dept. of E. E. and P. Thus endeth the first act. The Second Act opens upon a scene of great festivity in the Courtyard of the Prince ' s castle. " Phoebe " Brunton, as Monsieur Piccolo, leads the Provincial Entertainers (The Mandolin Club), in a varied program. Sass, Hindrelet and Murphy provide spiritual enlightenment at this juncture. Wagner and the N. A. 10 play for the Royal Ball, following which an interpretation of 20th century red-hot, rhythmic, sensuous jazz is rendered. As usual, the 10 was musically flawless. After the entertainment at the castle, the villain returns, is identified, forgiven, and allowed " to shake for " the hand of the heroine. Before and during the show, Red Lewis and his orchestra provided the professional touch. R. H. Taylor d. A. Stretch Their rendition of Meyerbeer ' s " Coronation March " Director Asso.

In the dark years when a few ambitious Midshipmen gath- ■ ered to while away spare time, the poor orchestra was merely tolerated, and confined itself to the simple and conventional ballad type of music. Intensive rehearsing at length permitted the pres- entation of The Unfinished Symphony, which was received by an appreciative Regiment with great enthusiasm. Since that time each succeeding orchestra has taken up where its predecessor stopped. At the present time the Orchestra ranks with any amateur unit of the same type in the country. a a s Page Three Hundred Twenty-jour i%.iii! !i s " " jrjrjr. i pSj 1 P S } f ?

Sometimes it is rather hard to listen to, and sometimes it is rather good; but after all we do not sing for other people ' s pleasure, because singing is merely our way of forgetting for a while the cares of the world and of the Academy. Hence our work is play, and we feel that our time is not wasted. In the Show the singers took the part of the King ' s Army. And what an Army! A singing army. No wonder they won their battle with the Traitor Prince! i t S R a 8 a - a a a a a l ' ii%e Three Hundred Twenty-five ■s ts r r " • ' .- S SP i f Brunton. Richards, Nichols.

But with a nice combination of love songs and syncopated stomps, the Mandolin Club must attempt to draw from its whining strings sufficient alchemy to play upon the stolid and somewhat distorted tastes of its subjects, or better, victims. From year to year, therefore, our poor musicians, sans genius, sans inspiration, sans even long flowing hair, but with characteristic slavery and application (to say nothing of good clean fun " ) work into form what the audience knows as the Mandolin Club Act.

Although the Entree-Acts are billed as the lesser attractions, sometimes it happens that one or more of them steals the show; ( " Can you hear me back on the shelf? " ). In our galaxy of talent is included everything from a boy who sings with a falsetto voice, to a man who sings with a false setta teeth. They hold nothing sacred. Anything that their discriminating audience will applaud is fair game for their nets. They will do a tap dance, croon a mammy song or play a piccolo. D. J.

But there is one group that is constantly in action— one the quality of which never wavers: our gloom chasers— " blues " dispellers— joy givers, and pep inspirers— the " N. A. TEN. " Week after week, Wagner and his followers save from suicide the youngsters on the Math tree, and the First Class unsat in " Bull.

And in the between times they furnish tuneful and rhythmic background— if not foreground, on the majority of occasions. If the spirit is low the jazz hounds elevate it; if the spirit is high, it is boosted farther. If the Regiment is cold— the Ten must needs raise the temperature— Get Hot ! It can truthfully be said that the N. A. Ten, -along with Sass and his brother contortionists, contribute more to the high spirit of the Regiment than any other factor. .

When day is done and lights are low, when Friday comes to a close and decks are scrubbed, when notebooks are turned in and hammocks are swung — then does the Ten bring back memories of the past, hopes for the future and joy for the present. At all the smokers and boxing bouts aboard ship, the Ten was in evidence. They have played be- fore Royalty in Europe, and the two white women of Guan- tanamo.

If our voyage has been successful, then, we owe a debt of gratitude to all these men of all classes, who by their devotion of time and interest have helped us through the roughest waters. Therefore, it is with deep gratitude and sincere good will that we extend our fullest appreciation To the entire Class of 1930 for their wholehearted response in paying for the Bag. To all of ' 31, ' 32, and ' 33 for their invaluable cooperation in subscriptions, circulation and sales.

Here they can read of our long hours of watches, of our loves and disappointments, and of our struggles with the elusive 2.5. It has been truly said that the Log serves as a mythical chain between our homes and the Academy.

The Athletic Section is to them the proof that the Navy Spirit never dies, but lives, and is continually reborn in the hearts of every new class. The Log is a part of the Naval Academy, and the Fleet looks upon it as such. Each Battalion has its Log representative, on whose shoulders the brunt of the work falls in editing copy. Here the chaff is separated from the wheat, and the week ' s supply chosen, properly marked, and mailed off to Baltimore at about n-1 minutes before taps. To those of the Staff the Log is their product, and their brain child, for in it is a record of their work and their inspiration.

From small book- lets of limited information it has grown until now it contains many interesting articles and poems relating to our profession, in addition to the bare essentials. Of course, for the Flebe it has most use, as its underlying principle is to acquaint him with the Academy and with what is expected of him. Among its features are brief resumes of all the sports and activities, some time-honored traditions and traits, and all the songs and yells.

This sounds comparatively easy, and only the members of the Committee appreciate the true magni- tude of the task involved in that simple statement. Specifications must be prepared, which neces- sitates new and different ideas and unique but appropriate suggestions. Designs of the various bidding firms must be considered and decided upon impartially. And, finally, all of this accomplished, there still remains the biggest job of all — that of perfecting the accepted design and delivering to the Regi- ment a Christmas Card of which it may be proud. Endless hours are devoted to arguments, criticisms, suggestions, and planning to accomplish this. The last card is delivered, all accounts are straightened up, and the last detail attended to eventually, however, and the Committee sits back and listens to the growls of disapprobation or the glowing words of approval of the Regiment.

The Society, now in its seventh year, has done much towards fulfilling its destiny. A great number of traditions, half-forgotten, have been brought to light and given to the Regiment, and out of the Regiment have come many notable literary efforts. The works of note that have been an outcome of this Society are " Anchors Aweigh, " a book of Midshipman verse, " The Book of Navy Songs, " a compilation of all the Naval songs, old and new, and the Navy Desk Pad Calendar, an attractive calendat which brings to our attention deeds which have been done by our predecessors. There are many Midshipmen who enjoy writing. It is a good thing for any profession to have its writers in order that its deeds may be passed on to those who follow. The Society was founded to foster and give incentive to such writers, and it is the general opinion that in the past the Ttident Litetary Society and the Trident Magazine have done much to attain that end. } Langen.

Well, it is just a group of us who like to play with volts and amperes, and as a means of diversion from the prescribed Academic work, spend most of our recreation periods in seeing what we can do with a bit of practical application of our knowledge (or lack of knowledge) of tne mysteries of electricity. During the past year we have designed, and have in partial operation, a switchboard of a modern type which makes possible the control of all stage lighting in Mahan Hall from a central location adjacent to the stage. This switchboard, our latest achievement, when completed, will control some fifty separate circuits (with dimmers) on the stage, not including the various signal controls which are also on it. , The lighting of the stage is but one phase of our activities. For the various shows presented in Mahan Hall, we provide electric display signs on the tower of that building. During the fall there was the slogan sign on the seaward side of Bancroft Hall. Our final endeavors are seen during June Week each year. The illumination of the Chapel dome is the result of our playing the parts of monkeys for several weeks. Left to Right: Taylor, Taxis, Dodson.

The main objective of the club is to train men in the practical end of Radio, as well as the theory. The club is fortunate in having Pro- fessor G. D. Robinson, of the Department of Electrical Engineering, for consultation on all technical matters. Also Lt.-Comdr. Partello has been invaluable to the club as the Officer Representative. The Federal Radio Inspector of the Third Radio District was the guest of the club during 1929 and gave twenty-one members the federal examination for government license as Radio Operators. Seventeen successfully passed and, with those who had already secured their licenses, have been hold- ing up the operating end of the club. With apparatus built solely by members of the club, commu- nications have been successfully held with England, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, the Canal Zone, South America, various expeditions, and many other distant parts of the world. Great signal strength of wonderful purity are always the reports, proving the work well done. Station W3ADO has already made the Naval Academy famous over the Radio Lanes, and with the tentative program ahead, it should continue to do so. Crenshaw. Beam, Felton, Mandelkorn.

The gang itself solves many of the problems connected with the proper staging of a play, being greatly aided by the technical advice of Mr. Schilling, a scenic artist of many years ' experience. The shifting of the scenery requires coordination, speed, quietness and smartness. Such labors backstage will undoubtedly give to the gang an insight into the average theatrical effort that ordinarily is not understood by the layman. They will be able to enjoy better the dramatic offerings of any professional company that they may chance to see. If, however, these benefits are not derived, the fellows still find the gang and its tricks good recreation and a splendid method of defending the reputation of the famous forty per cent. Then, after several years on the gang, when the faithful one has at last received his coveted award, the masked " N, " he finds that it was not the award that made him stick, but mostly the bon cama- raderie of the outfit.

All fourth classmen desiring to try out for Assistant Business Manager of the Masqueraders and Combined Musical Clubs report to room 1353 after supper tonight. " And thus begin four years of hard, though interesting, work in another of the many non-athletic activities. All details concerning the business end of the Regiment ' s dramatic organizations are handled by the Business Gang. These include such widely -separated items as the purchasing of the more than one thousand dollars ' worth of scenery needed for shows during the year and the monthly selection of records for the Panatrope in Smoke Hall. It ' s di ersifled work, but work, nonetheless, this handling of Masquerader ' s and Musical Club ' s accounts! Preparing programs, selling tickets, publicity, arrange- ments for royalties, purchasing Stage and Juice Gang materials, all these fall to the lot of the Business Staff. And with them comes a broad knowledge of the complex administration involved in dramatic organizations. The Business Gang has the opportunity of learning some of the elementary principles of an other- wise foreign topic to us of the naval service. And with this learning are developed executive ability and teamwork, essentials for a successful naval career. J. A.

The club was formed with the ideas of perpetuating the spirit of Navy athletics, and of offering additional honor to those men who make the name of Navy great on the field of sport. For this reason a large lounging room in the new boathouse has been designed to be the N-Club room, where letter men, both officers and Midshipmen, may meet on a common footing. With such a promising start, the N-Club bids soon to become one of the finer institutions and traditions of, not only the Academy, but the whole Naval Service. 4 4 dT4T A «L cw a.

Through his efforts the Academy has a choir which compares favorably ■ L with any group of its size and kind in the country. Few Midshipmen realize the amount of art that lies behind a pleasing and proper presentation of some of the more intricate hymns of the ritual, such as the choir renders every Sunday during the regular service in the Chapel. To attain this art, the choir practices in secret session each Friday during the winter months, producing as a result, the smooth and attractive Chapel service which never fails to bring forth pleasing comments from the many week-end visitors who attend. i i i ( i s s 1 i s , s . . cw «.cw KSkSk«k c fc ' ; || { fc% Page Three Hundred Foity-nine ( i p ) } ) r f r p L Haile, Sisson O ' Handflv, Phillips.

The work of the committee is divided into three divisions, namely: the fall, winter and spring divisions. The fall division is made up entirely of first and second class- men. The winter division is the largest and consists of members from the three upper classes. Third classmen are, more or less, members on probation. If their work and interest seem to warrant their retention on the committee, they are allowed to continue during the spring months when there are fewer teams than during the busy winter season. Membership is usually obtained after recommenda- tion by a first or second classman. This committee is one of the few non-athletic activities that are really an aid to athletics as well as to the individual. Praise for this group is not shouted from the housetops, no money is charged for its performances, but still it retains the distinction of being indispensable in the successful carrying out of Navy ' s heavy athletic schedules. Some may ask just what it accomplishes and what good the individual member derives from association with the committee? Midshipmen, as we all know, are very much restricted, necessarily, of course, and do not have the opportunity of making many acquaint- ances outside of the Service. This work enables them to meet strangers from civilian life and to make friends with men from sc hools all over the country. The monotony of those long months from January until June is effectively broken by outside contacts and the self-sufficient midshipman is shown that there are other things just as important as those included in our curriculum. Upon the committee and its individual members rests the duty of giving the right impression of our Academy and its ideas of sportsmanship. The outside impression of the Academy is often gained more from the treatment accorded visitors by the reception committee than by the treatment received on the athletic field. When the committee creates a good impression upon visitors, it creates a good impression of the Academy; when the impression created is opposite in character, so is the visitor ' s impression of the Academy as a whole. This committee is a nucleus about which the whole Academy should act. The committee, itself, can create a good impression but one must agree that this impression would be more lasting if every midshipman had a spontaneous " hello " on his lips when passing a visiting athlete or group of athletes in the corridors. A few well-placed greetings will add a lot to our reputation as sportsmen and even more to our reputation as hosts. «« ' dP dF cw CK cw iW ' VOAAJ Page Three Hundred Fifty-jour 193 I C trD ana fourth OBattaltong THE CLASS OF NINETEEN-THIRTY-ONE OW long have we been in this man ' s N imminent, we can look back upon almos molded the heterogeneous assembly of o common friendship, by the rejoicings that we have Plebe year brought us most of the tribulations our square corners, bent our backs to the oars of t thousand other trials of that hardest of years, we our class that time has served only to strengthen.

Page Three Hundred Fifty-nine THE CLASS OF NINETEEN-THIRTY-TWO rROM the far-flung corners of our land they came, from every walk and strata of life, the rich and the poor, the prep school product and the enlisted man — all members of the class of " 32. " In those carefree days of plebe summer new contacts were made — new friendships were estab- lished — and the fusion of that heterogeneous mass of raw material into the compact ideal whole was begun. A year passed, and the rigorous grind of Academics, and the unremitting discipline, caused some few to leave us for the easier life of a civilian; but our first June Week found us already a part of the whole — indoctrinated with the ideals and traditions of our chosen career and eager for our first cruise — " Youngsters. Barcelona — Naples — Rome — London; magic names that envision the lure and romance of the Old World; a vista of new peoples, new customs, the best of all that each land had to offer — these were ours in the three months that followed. With these came a taste of the life we had chosen: " field- days " and " mid-watches, " " gunnery " and " engineering, " all taught us that ours was to be no easy life, yet the end of the cruise came all too soon. Page Three Hundred Sixty " Sep " leave and one " diag " — thirty days of glorious bliss, then back to the new rates and a new year. Youngsters were a part of a football team whose season, despite setbacks, ended in a fighting, glorious victory over Dartmouth ; and ere it was realized, Christmas, with its joy for some, and sorrow for the many unsats, was upon us. Home, ten days of relaxation — then back to the last long grind. At the end of the first term, Calculus, that grim reaper of Youngster heads, took heavy toll — and the increasing complexity of all phases of our routine in the second term brought us to the realization that we were becoming more and more an integral part of the Academy. With this realization came a new purpose, a desire to make our class in truth a vital part of the Regiment, and Youngster names were to be found on every roll of regimental activity. Our academic course is half-run, yet the best still lies before us. New rates, new responsibilities, new opportunities will be ours — the chance to make " 32 " one of the best the Academy has seen is ours to make or break. By our cooperation and application to duty in the two years that lie before us let us so prepare ourselves that when we are called to take our place in the Fleet, we can in truth say " 32 AYE AYE.

H. i ( Page Three Hundred Sixty-three 1933 CljirD ana fourth !5attaUon$ THE CLASS OF NINETEEN-THIRTY-THREE E have come to the end of our first year of Academy life, and we pause to let our minds wander back over the past twelve months. Memories of the first few weeks of Plebe Summer make us realize how we must have appeared to those who were watching: a crowd — unknown and untried — with nothing in common save the desire of some day becoming Naval Officers. During the Summer there were drills, drills and more drills. Company competitions brought us together for the first time and left us with a feeling of unity and spirit. We were told about the Navy, its traditions and the men who made them. Farragut, Dewey, along with many others, lived again in our imaginations, imparting to us a great and lasting inspiration. In June we were a crowd, in September we were a class awaiting the test which was to come. And then one day on the last of August, Battle Division Two came steaming up the Bay and dropped their anchors. Here they were at last, bringing the upperclassmen back from foreign lands. Upperclassmen ! All around us, hurrying to get away on leave. We felt insignificant and realized the tasks that lay ahead of us. With September and the first taste of " academics, " we became acquainted with Bowditch. steam Pjge Three Hundred Sixty-four 1933 ifftrgt ana Second Battalions kits, and Dago books. A few short weeks and the upperclassmen were back from leave, the Academic Year had begun, and ' 33 was a part of the Regiment. At first we felt strange and out of place, but before long we grew accustomed to the new and rigorous routine, and soon we even had enough confidence to start counting the days until Christmas leave. The weeks went by so quickly, however, that we nearly lost count. There were football games, cries of " Plebes will carry on, " followed by the inevitable " Plebes are Plebes. " Then — was it possible? — carols, the Christmas dinner and leave. During those ten wonderful days we renewed old friendships, and found that we were proud of the Service to a degree we had never dreamt was possible. It was over all too soon and we found ourselves back at our work, doing the last frantic boning before those fatal January exams. They took their toll and there were handshakes and farewells for those who, by some decree of fate, were forced to leave us. The remaining months passed swiftly, and now we find ourselves at the end of Plebe Year, looking back. We have reached what a few months ago seemed the greatest of goals, Youngster Year.

FOOTBALL With a team of veterans, and newcomers making it difficult for these veterans to maintain their posi- tions, with a sizzling regiment and the same successful coaching staff of the past few years, the Navy football outlook for 1929 certainly was rosy. True it was that Lloyd and Whelchel were ineligible, but then we had the Paducah lad, the fleet-footed Art Spring and Joe Toth, that invaluable tower of strength Whitey Hughes, Moret, Koepke, Jack Eddy and a host of others. Was it strange that Grant- land Rice should predict a successful season? Work started Labor Day, and Bill drilled them with a mother ' s care and a Spartan father ' s disci- pline. But in spite of it all, Johnny Gannon and Jack Castree were out when the season opened. The team was on edge, the Regiment was leaking steam at every valve; but still the silk-trousered Ramblers of Notre Dame fooled us with a pass from the kneeling Carideo to the speedy Elder. But Joe Clifton did what few men in the country did that year — crossed the Notre Dame goal line. 212tfsii} r tr -if t 0$ £ " A " SQUAD Back Row, Left to Right: Shelton, McCrae, Rodgers.

P.T°e Three Httnd ed Seventy-two Then Pennsylvania inflicted the second reverse of the season as the team played one of its poorest games. Pennsylvania, from start to finish, played " heads-up " football and Navy tossed away a touchdown by a fumble on the goal line. The spark seemed dead. We met Princeton when they were wondering whether to disband the team or not, and after fifty minutes of " the old 60 " with the score 13-0, Navy fumbled again on the goal line. Princeton scored on a long march and then in the last desperate minutes a long pass tied the game. The great Dartmouth squad was outplayed by one of the hottest teams on one of the most frigid fields that it has ever been our good fortune to see. The dashing, cutting, plunging Kirn and the ever- dependable Clifton and Gannon looked like the dogs of war that day. We can still remember Clifton stemming the green tire of Notre Dame, Whitey Hughes galloping down the field for a touchdown, Rusty Williams clipping off yard after yard on a clever twist or a fast run, Jack Eddy and Captain " Kopecker " piling up one line after another, Art Spring tearing around end for a long dash, Joe Bauer playing any backfield position as if he were made for it, and Crane ' s and Moret ' s magnetic attraction for the pigskin. The season brought us no National Championship, but it left us memories of moments that meant more than exceptional success could ever mean.

The team had been working out for a month and had quite a lot of stuff for an early season game as the score, 47-0, indicated. Denison kicked off and Navy brought the ball back to nearly midfield, where we started a drive that lasted until the goal line was crossed. We scored again in the same manner shortly afterward. The other three quarters were very similar to the first as far as scoring was concerned, the third period being the only one in which we did not score our quota of two touchdowns. Denison had nothing in the way of attack capable of making a dent in the Navy line. Time and again her backs started fast and stopped faster as they met their own forwards coming back in their own face. They were completely outclassed during the whole game. An analysis of the game proved to the Regiment that they had a team that was potentially great. Their attack was fairly smooth, and their passing was above the average, two passes to Moret being good for forty yards apiece. Bowstrom ' s kick- ing was, as usual, excellent. From future events, one might be tempted to conclude that a season is better started by a real battle, such as the Purdue affair of ' 26, than by a struggle with the West Wind. Anyway, the Blue was on top, for it was a victory. MORET JOE DROP KICKS CK. .-KtWCWtWtWCW Page Three Hundred Seventy-Four I THE LINE IN ACTION P WILLIAM AND MARY IN the second game of the season and the last preliminary before the crucial Notre Dame test, the Navy scored a victory over William and Mary. The team played sane, conservative football, nothing being shown that might attract the attention of any scout in the stands, and consequently, the score was lower than expected. William and Mary put up a splendid fight and deserves all credit for the great showing they made. We admired them for much the same reason that we so often admire our own; they were the under-dogs and used every one of those sixty minutes for football. The first quarter was scoreless. The ball see-sawed up and down the field with no real advantage being gained by either side. Kohlhas made forty yards on four successive plays but an intercepted pass broke up this march, which was the only sustained effort of the period. The second and third quarters were rather dull except for a touchdown by Clifton in the third and a blocked kick - in the second, which Moret covered for a safety. Two Navy marches were stopped by intercepted passes. The fourth quarter found the Navy team at its best and considetable ground was made through the William and Mary _ _ -X rfWw defense though onl) one store tesulted. Navy threw a few passes this period and most of them were successful. A com- bination of passes and runs shortly placed us in a scoring position and Spring took it across. The game ended with Navy on the lone end of a 1 5-0 score. HUGHES 6 HALEY COMPLETING A PASS i 5 Page Three Hundred Seventy-five SWAN ELDER AROUND THE END NOTRE DAME With the preliminary games out of the way, the schedule commenced in earnest with Notre Dame looming on the horizon as the third game. The 1929 team that rode out of South Bend was a real aggregation and every- one realized it before the battle. About Monday the Regiment started to smoulder and under the impetus of the impending struggle the heat finally reached the very peak at the opening kickoff in the Baltimore Stadium. The crowd gathered for this occasion saw a real game of football. In the opening period Bauer got off two quick kicks that rolled to the Notre Dame goal line but each time a Navy man was off side. However, later in the period, Bauer and Spring worked two passes that brought the ball to the 8-yard line. From there, two bucks and Joe Clifton had scored. Bauer ' s dropkick was good. Notre Dame ' s score came in the second period. A determined Navy line stif- fened on the 12-yard marker and three plunges found the Irish still 12 yards from a touchdown. On fourth down, Carideo was pulled down by a tackier but as he fell, shot the ball to Elder, who galloped across for a touchdown. The third period produced nothing but passing and kicking with neither team having the edge. However, a drive as the period ended brought the ball to the 8-yard line and as the fourth quarter opened, Mullins dived across for the re- maining touchdown. BOWSTROM NOTRE DAME INTERFERENCE Page Three Hundred Seventy-six DUKE STOPS WILLIAMS DUKE The Notre Dame defeat disheartened the team but it still had enough come- back to trample on Duke, 45-13. This was largely due to a second-half rally, when the substitutes, under the spark supplied by Rusty Williams, a newly discovered back, smothered the badly battered Blue Devils. The first period produced no score. After an exchange of punts and fumbles, Castree and Spring put one across. Duke came right back to score themselves. Buie threw snappy passes and Beaver ran the ends so that a few minutes later Duke was one point ahead. They went further before the half ended. One of Spring ' s passes in our territory bounced into Warren ' s arms and he ran the remaining twenty yards for a touchdown. A try for a third score after blocking one of Joe Bauer ' s quick kicks failed when the Navy line refused to yield. Williams and Kohlhas then lugged the ball down the field for a touchdown to make us one point behind at half. A fumble, recovered by Byng, paved the way for our next score with Kohlhas and Williams carrying the ball. A few minutes later an intercepted pass gave us another chance. We took advantage of the opportunity and Kohlhas went through tackle to bring our total to 24. Bauer recovered a Duke fumble and Wil- liams ran around the end on an attempted pass for the score. KOHLHAS EDDY THROUGH THE LINE Page Three Hundred Seventy-seven p p p p p p p a STOPPING PRINCETONS SAFETY MAN PRINCETON Navy met Princeton at Palmer Stadium in a game that was one of the most thrilling, as well as the most heart-breaking of the season. Princeton was out for a victory, and Navy, perhaps a little too confident, was nevertheless primed for a scrap, and a scrap it was. Despite the final score of 13-13, the Navy team had just cause to curse the fates for fickleness. Navy scored in the second period on a brilliant dash by Art Spring, aided by excellent interference from Joe Bauer. Bostrom got the extra point by a place kick. In the third quarter a Princeton aerial landed on Whitey Hughes ' chest and he took a firm grip with both hands and started. Navy interferers cut down the Princeton defense and Whitey stepped across the goal line. Bowstrom missed the extra point. Again in this period, as he was crossing the goal line, an unfortunate fumble by Kohlas, who, incidentally, had an injured hand, cost us another touchdown. Princeton started in the fourth period and scored on a long run by Bennett and a buck by Zundel. They got the ball again and with ten yards to go on fourth down they threw a long forward, which was caught by Moldaur. One step and Navy ' s fine lead was gone. After the game, the Regiment, before starting the trip back to Annapolis, was entertained at dinner by the Princeton Alumni. I CLIFTON QUICK KICK Page Three Hundred Seienty-eighl i www i BF p p m 1 p p p ' l FORMATION OUTSIDE FRANKLIN FIELD 1 PENNSYLVANIA BEFORE a capacity crowd of seventy-five thousand people, Pennsylvania and Navy met in their annual game at Franklin Field. Two successive defeats by the Navy had primed Penn for the struggle. They were out for revenge and they got it. The Navy team lacked that spark that had so often, in years before, changed a hopelessly outclassed aggregation into a pack of wild men. This year the spark was lighted too late. A feverish Regiment did everything in its power but nothing happened; the Navy cracker failed to explode. Navy started a drive in the first period and advanced the ball to the fourteen-yard line. Here Penn held and a final pass from Spring to Beans was grounded over the goal line. On the next play, Masters took the ball from the twenty-yard line to midfield as the quarter ended. On the first play of the second quarter, a short pass from Masters to Wilner with a forty-yard run brought Penn their score. Navy started another drive, which ended with a goal-line fumble. Hughes blocked the ensuing kick and Byng recovered for a safety to make the score 6-2. The second half was scoreless and was, for the most part, a punting duel between Masters and Bowstrom. Rain, during the second half and after the game, served to complete the " sad day for old Nyvee " as a wet and saddened Regiment returned to Crabtown. SPRING GRAY A LONG PASS 1 Page Three Hundred Seventy-nine CRANE ■ BIG BOOT BOW GEORGETOWN With the team battered from the Pennsylvania and Princeton fiascos, Georgetown invaded Annapolis with a determined and cocky delegation. They brought with them rooters who swelled the crowd to 25,000, the largest that was ever crowded into Farragut Field, while many others were unable to secure seats. Among the notables were President and Mrs. Hoover, who made their first official trip to see the Navy play. The game itself was a stern battle full of hard football that ended in a scoreless tie. Both teams had lines that would not yield and neither side could make a dent in the other ' s defense, let alone carry a substantial drive. Navy came within inches of a score when Bauer almost threw Leary behind the goal line for a safety in the third quarter. In the first half, Navy seemed to have what edge there was. Spring ' s gallops around the ends were good for gains although he could not shake him- self loose for a touchdown. Bowstrom outkicked Mooney, the Georgetown cap- tain, to gain lots of yardage. In the later moments of the game, however, Spring tired and the Georgetown boys got started for some substantial gains. On one trip, Dudak actually crossed the Navy goal line, but the play was recalled for a penalty. GANNON m 3L % or ■■■ ■■■■ ■■■i NO GAIN «T rt -a.. t 4„i, Page Three Hundred Eighty m " 1 " TOTH SNAGS ONE WAKE FOREST After three hard scraps with Princeton, Pennsylvania and Georgetown, the Navy was ready for a rest and Wake Forest provided the soft spot. The visitors were outclassed and the 61-0 final score showed about the way the two teams looked. Three full Navy teams were used so that the whole squad had a workout. On the Wake Forest 30-yard line, Kirn intercepted a pass ; and a completed pass, coupled with an end run by Toth, gave Navy her first score. Following the next kickoff, a pass, a run and another pass saw Beans over the line with the second touchdown. Another march followed the kickoff and the score was 20-0 when the half ended. Three touchdowns were chalked up in quick succession in the third period. The Navy aerial, with Gannon on the throwing end, started to function and Wake Forest was bewildered. It was simply a case of the team throwing a couple of passes and then lining up for the kickoff. The final period saw Captain Koepke lead his team to three more touchdowns. He himself recovered a fumble and Char- lie Mauro plunged over for the six points. Straight football scored the last two touchdowns. Mauro was the running back and he dashed through the Wake k Forest line almost at will. The 6lst point was a dropkick by Peterson. CHAPPLE • I PETERSON TOUCHDOWN Page Three Hundred Eighty-one CASTREE LOOSE CRINKLEY WEST VIRGINIA WESLEYAN With the Dartmouth game a week away, Bill was taking no chances on getting anyone " hors de combat " before the big battle of the season. So he started his second team against West Virginia Wesleyan and let the regulars rest on the bench most of the game. Frequent substitutions were made so that the contest evolved into a hard practice scrimmage rather than a big game. The first score came early in the opening period. Haley recovered a fumble on the 37-yard line. From there, alternate dashes by Spring and Binns carried the ball across. At the half a whole new team went in for Navy and although a fumble gave them a quick chance to score, Wesleyan halted them on their own seven- yard line and a few minutes later proceeded to score on the varsity itself. Gannon tried to throw a pass from his own thirty-yard line, was bumped, and flipped the ball up in the air for Fordyce to grab and gallop for a touchdown. The third period saw Kirn crash through the Wesleyan line behind Joe Bauer and drive through for a touchdown a few minutes later on a pass. The final six-pointer came after a drive in which Mauro, Castree, Williams and Toth ran the ball to make the final score 30-6. BYNG THE TRY FOR POINT Page Thiee Hundred Eighty-two i W P W W Wi THE SECOND ONE DARTMOUTH Nobody believed it when Bill said the team was on the tise, but he was right. It was in the second half that things started. From the kickoff the team began a march for a touchdown. Gannon shot five-yard passes to Bauer, to Moret and Byng, until finally the 12-yard marker was reached. Then Kirn started. On five plays he battered the Dartmouth defense and on the last one crashed over for a touchdown. A few minutes later we had another one. Dartmouth, driven deep into their own territory, was forced to kick. A crowd of Navy men swarmed on the punter and the ball bounced off Hughes ' chest. Paul Moret scooped it up into his atms and started for the goal line. McCall caught him from behind on the 1 2-yard line. Then Kirn started to go again. With head down, blindly following Bauer and the powerful Clifton, he batteted the concrete Dartmouth forward wall. After six plays he was a lone foot from the goal line when the quarter ended. Another smash at the other end of the field and he was over. A little while later McCall caught a pass fifteen yards from the goal and ran for the Dartmouth score without being touched. From then on they continued to throw passes but an alert Navy de- fense battered them down. The game fe and the 1929 season ended with the Navy still ahead and the frozen Regiment started out to celebrate the victory. BRYAN KIRN STOPPING KIRN (-riC Page Three Hundred Eighty-three j tftfpfek. ! 1 ' J B vflP J -- s SOCCER The season of 1929 opened with every possible promise of success. With the combination of plenty of veteran material, an abundance of reserves, and a practically perfectly arranged schedule, begin- ning with Franklin and Marshall and topped off with Yale, the previous season ' s Intercollegiate Cham- pion, everything pointed to a banner season in Navy soccer. However, injuries, always the bete noire of every coach, took their toll before the season was well under way and contributed much to the dashing of our hopes for a championship team. McGlathery, a veteran of two years ' varsity experience, on who m Coach Taylor had depended as the mainspring of the Navy offensive, spent practically the entire season in the hospital and was able to participate in only two games. McPeake, a wing, another veteran from previous seasons, broke a bone in his foot in practice and was out of the game the whole season. These losses, combined with injuries to Grove and Gilbert, both of them wings, seri- ously hampered Coach Taylor in his endeavors to build up a well-rounded squad.

The season opened with a decisive 5-0 victory over Franklin and Marshall. The following Wednesday saw the wearers of the Blue and Gold take Western Maryland into camp after an extra period, by the score of 4-3. The large crowd that turned out to see the game were treated to a fast, brilliant and stubbornly fought game, packed full of tense moments and scintillating individual playing. " Jumbo " Weiler proved to be the hero of the day, for it was his inspired work in goal that saved the day for Navy on more than one occasion. McGlathery, back from the hospital only that morning, sank a beautiful shot from well outside the penalty area and gave the Navy the lead that won the game. The Lehigh soccerites were the next victims of Tom Taylor ' s warriors by the score of 3-1. The game was featured by the brilliant work of Bud Steere, Navy ' s bid for All-American halfback, and the sterling defensive work of " Toughy " Barrett at fullback. These men, along with Skipper Hulme, formed the nucleus of a defense that was well nigh impregnable. Steere was assigned the task of cover- ing the Lehigh center forward, the star of the brown and white team; he out-played his man so well that the Lehigh man did not get a single shot at the Navy goal. Williamson ' s spectacular offensive work drew the unqualified praise of all who saw the game. The boys from Harvard furnished the next opposition for the Navy cohorts and proved to be the toughest proposition that the booters had met to date. The Crimson team boasted two small but very fast and clever fullbacks, who time after time turned back the Navy attack. Navy ' s lone score, early in the second half, came when ShovestuI netted a well-placed corner kick from Gilbert. The count was knotted at 1-1 when the final whistle blew and two extra periods were called but neither team could penetrare the airtight defense of the other and the game ended a tie. ( t ( ( A SCRIMMAGE Page Three Hundred Eighty-five y BARRETT BLACKBURN OUT TO THE WING The Blue and Gold team came back strong in their next game and walked roughshod over Lafayette by the score of 7-3. After amassing a three-point lead the Navy team let down long enough to allow the visitors to score three goals in rapid succession to tie the score. In the fourth quarter a thoroughly aroused Navy team, led by Gubbins, opened up a slashing attack that quickly netted three more goals and from then on the Lafayette attack weakened perceptibly. The second string, sent into the game in the closing minutes of play, slipped another counter past the weary collegians, making the final score 7-3. A fast, clever, hard-charging Haverford team made the wearers of the Blue bow in their first defeat of the season. The visitors sank their first counter when a shot caromed off a Navy man into the corner of the goal and, a few minutes lat er, a hard shot that barely eluded the Navy goalie, put them into the lead 2-0. Just before the end of the half Black- burn drove one past the Haverford goal keeper and soon after the begin- ning of the second half, McGlathery tied the score with a shot from scrimmage. With the score tied, both teams struggled desperately to tally and with but a minute and a half to play, the visitors got a beautifully placed shot past Weiler into the net to win the game 3-2. Eddie Sanders at left half performed brilliantly throughout the game and walked away with the Navy laurels for the day. " TOUGHY " KICKS ONE Page Three Hundred Eighty-six ' . -! 5 ••?; ' " %k .

Very wet turf and a mixture of rain, snow and sleet made the play very disagreeable and rendered the ball extremely difficult to handle. Penn State boasted a soccer man par excellence in the person of Cicero Edgerton, last year ' s selection for Ail-American center halfback. He was literally all over the field and was the major factor in the Lion victory. Captain Jack Hulme of the Navy played his usual stellar game at right halfback and provided the spectators with many thrills with his brilliant work, both of offense and defense. The season closed with a heart-breaking 2-1 defeat by Yale at New Haven on Thanksgiving day. Despite outstanding performances by Barrett and Corson in the fullback positions and heroic work by Weiler in goal, Yale succeeded in taking advantage of the wind to score two goals. Navy ' s score came as the result of a very pretty play. Navy was awarded a goal kick and Weiler punted the ball well over half the length of the field to Blackburn, who passed to Boyle. Boyle took the ball down nearly to the Yale goal mouth and then passed it to Blackburn, who scored. The season shows a difficult schedule of eight games disposed of with four victories, one tie and three losses, a very creditable showing consider- ing the calibre of our opponents and the handicap under which the booters labored in having so many early season injuries. McGLATHERY SANDERS A MIDFIELD SHOT O . S S S » 3 Page Three Hundred Eighty-seven 9 HUDSON CROSS COUNTRY A FEW ardent enthusiasts introduced Cross Country to the Naval Academy in 1923 and from that humble beginning, the sport has grown until the fall of 1929 saw the first undefeated team at the Naval Academy. Much of the credit for the rise must be given to Coach Thomson, who, when he took over the track situation also became the Cross Country coach. Inadequate material kept the calibre of the teams below the standard that should have been attained, but the 1929 squad showed that Cross Country is now ready to take its place as one of the consistent winners of the Academy. When the season opened, the prospects were not particularly bright. There were two letter men back from previous seasons and most of the runners were inexperienced. Captain Hansen had not been one of the outstanding stars of the year before although he was a strong runner. Rouse was the holder of the Naval Academy record but had not been going so well. Gibson and Highley had never run before and Hudson had little experience, so it was a very green team at the start. Coach Thomson, however, whipped the men into shape and when the Duke meet arrived, had a team strong enough to defeat the visitors 22-33. Hansen CROSS COUNTRY SQUAD Second Row, Left to Ri%bt: E. J.

Highley, Hudson Page Three Hundred Eighty-eight showed himself an improved runner by taking second place and the fact that most of the Navy men finished bunched was a good indication of a strong team in the making. Georgetown next appeared on the horizon and it was with a vague premonition of disaster that this meet started. They were good enough to take first place and that was all. Hansen again finished second, followed by Highley, Gibson, Rouse and Hudson in a bunch to give us a 20-35 win. The hardest meet of the season was with Virginia. They had a fast team but once again the well-balanced Navy strength gave us a victory. The visitors took first place and again Hansen was second, although a bad spill robbed him of a chance for first honors. Highley showed lots of improvement and beat out two Virginia men for third place, which was the deciding factor of the meet. Hudson, Rouse and Gibson all finished together to clinch the victory. The final meet found Maryland invading Annapolis. With them came a blinding snowstorm and the meet was run in ankle-deep mud with snow falling all during the race. For the first time during the season, Navy took first place when Hansen and Highley finished their Cross Country careers by breaking the tape together well ahead of the pack. The rest of the team stuck close together and the result was a perfect score, 15-40 victory as the climax of a perfect season. HIGHLEY OUT IN FRONT ■ a a a D a a s s a -. i s s. tKtV .V 9 i s Page Three Hundred Eighty-nine WRESTLING With a record of seven victories and no defeats, the 1930 wrestling team enjoyed the best season in many years and was ranged as the best in the east. The record of 168 points scored, against 34 for the opposition has never been paralleled in Navy wrestling and probably never in Eastern Inter- collegiate circles. There were four undefeated weights and a total of fourteen falls. The first meet was with North Carolina State University and resulted in a 22-8 victory. Theobald and Silverstein secured falls for Navy while Goodman, Gray, Morton and Hughes were credited with time advantages. Next came the Cadets from V. M. I., with only a heavyweight victory to save them from a complete shutout. The final score was 25-3. Falls were registered by Silverstein and Theobald with Wilbourne, Goodman, Gray, Morton and Kirkpatrick checking up three points each. And then came Duke. Another score of 25-3 was checked up against the Blue Devils from Durham, and the Regiment began to realize that we did have a team of championship caliber. Sil- verstein won by a fall and " Mush " Morton added another five points to our total. 7 , Row, Left ■ Right: Williams, Goodgame, Edwards, Murphy, Smith. Shtjey, He d Third Row: Grolileff.

It was generally conceded that we had no more than a fighting chance but the final score of 27-3 showed that even champions can be beaten by a good team. Theobald and Morton both won by falls. The three points for the visitors came in the heavy- weight bout when Evers gained a decision over Kirkpatrick in an extra period. The following two meets were with Princeton and West Virginia respectively. At Princeton the team scored a 26-8 victory. There were five falls in the meet: Theobald, Lincoln, Gray and Silverstein gaining them for Navy. The Mountaineers from Morgantown came the following week with high hopes but returned home completely shutout, 28-0. Theobald and Captain Hughes were both able to throw their opponents. The invasion of Annapolis by Penn State closed the season and we found ourselves undefeated for the first time in six years. State had not been beaten in two seasons and had won over Navy for four consecutive years. The score was the only close one of the year, 15-9. There were no falls but Theobald, Lincoln, Gray, Silverstein and Hughes were the Navy winners. The class of 1930 was well represented on the team. Vorhees, after starting the season on the bench, won a varsity berth and wrestled regularly in the 135-pound class. Lincoln was number two man in his weight for three years but hit his stride the last season and proved to be a splendid 125-pounder. Morton wrestled in the 160-pound division for three years and was a real wrestler. Captain Hughes was one of the finest 175 wrestlers developed at the Academy in many years. THEOBALD TOP SIDE Page Three Hundred Ninety-one b SMALL BORE I I ) ) ) } ) ) ) f i ) ) I P Small Bore Rifle is a sport that has been growing in popularity for several years, and the interest shown in it has made possible the splendid season achieved by the team this year. Twenty meets were won, and none were lost — indeed an enviable record. Every man on the squad was outstanding. Captain Chafee had a group of experts to call upon in McDougal, Hain, Moore, Harper and Hunter. These men twice broke the high score record for a dual meet, finally setting the new mark at 1,386, out of a possible 1,500. Moore ' s record of 284 out of 300 was the best turned in by any rifleman in the league, until McDougal took an afternoon ofl from swimming and raised the ante to 286. When records are passed around a squad like that, that squad must be a bit above the ordinary. Among the outstanding achievements of the year, exclusive of record breaking, were the defeat of Iowa, champions in 1929, and the victory in the Regimental Championships, a meet open to the teams of all military units. A word about the activities of David McDougal, ' 33, would not be amiss. This young gentleman walked away with three national individual titles during the year. He and his varsity brother should team up in great style in the future. Top Row, Left lo Right: Short, Sunderland, Hunter, McDougal, Baker, Yeaton (Mana ei ) Bottom Row: Harper.

Page Thice Hundred Ninety-two B0XIN BOXING The Navy boxing team, for ten years undefeated in a dual meet, successfully maintained that record during the 1929-30 season. There were several close matches, four in particular, during which the heart of the Regiment was farther from the designed resting place than it has been at any time in previous years. Boxing has a powerful hold on the Regiment as a whole, and it would feel more keenly the loss of that ten-year record than the loss of any other record of which we boast. There were two holes on the team to be filled when the season opened. The 115-lb. scraps were shared by Dempsey and Cooke, while Wallace stepped into the 135-lb. vacancy and proved himself one of the most capable boxers on the squad. The other weights were all taken care of by veterans. Fitzgerald, Intercollegiate Champ in the 125-lb. class the year before, started slowly but in the last couple of meets was showing his old-time form. Hall, at 145 lbs., was one of the best. A potent wallop and a desire to use it were his stocks in trade. Captain " Pat " Moret, the handy man of the year before, finally chose the welterweight as his own. He was always good for a victory, ' P f- ■ j ■• j_ f j ■MMHHM| ty ■. | I w j ■ | " ' B .

And " Moon " Chappie— for three years " Moon " had been winning the heavyweight scraps for us. He always was best when the going was hardest. The first meet of the season was with the wearers of Dartmouth ' s Green. The team ran through the meet in great style the final score being 6-1. The high spot of the evening was Halls first round knockout of Alton, Dartmouth ' s hitherto undefeated captain. The next meet, and one of the toughest that we have ever had, was with the mitt shngers from the University of New Hampshire. Those boys were good and Navy ' s four winners had to go at top speed to get their decisions. When Moret crawled into the ring for the next to the last bout, the old Navy record was the closest to the brink that it had ever been. The score in bouts was 2-3 and across the ring was Wageman, an A. A. U. champion. Moret was equal to the occasion, however, although it took him four rounds to prove his superiority. Then " Goose " Swan came through with a knockout and all was well again. M. I. T. had little to offer in a boxing way and Navy sailed to an easy 6-1 victory. Orleman, Tech ' s bantamweight, took Cooke over the hurdles for his first defeat of the year. Orleman was easily the classiest 115-pounder that appeared here this year. Don Sass, making his first varsity attempt, knocked his man out in the second round. Hall also scored with a knockout and Swan ' s good right hand bowled Cooper over in the opening session. The University of Pennsylvania ' s boxing team was Navy ' s op ponent on the following Saturday night and we sent them back on the short end of a 5-2 score.

Cap- tain Moret scored a nice victory in his match with Captain Home. This was easily the most interesting go of the evening. Both men were skilful boxers and both displayed their wares to the fullest advantage. Moret ' s crafty work piled up a big advantage for him in all three rounds. Merrick and Chappie went at each other with hammer and tongs in the first round, which was Chappie ' s. Merrick, however, stepped out and gained the advantage in the last two rounds to score one for Pennsylvania. Georgetown was the next opponent to be faced and as these boys never fight harder than when a blue-shirted Navy man is facing them, all hands were expecting a tough scrap and they were not disappointed. They forfeited two bouts to us but even with this handicap we were hard put to squeeze out on top. Tardugno, a classy man, scored over Fitzgerald. Captain Fish beat Hall for the third time. Bordeau and Swan mixed freely for four rounds with the Hilltopper having a slight edge. Navy, however, was not to be beaten. Moret won his bout handily and Chappie scored a close one to save the match.

The sur- prise of the evening came in the next scrap when Fitzgerald beat Stoops, one of Penn State ' s potential boys, in a bout that must have given our friendly enemies the shock of their lives. Wallace, boxing cleverly as always, whipped Casoni handily. Norm Hall was handed a clout to the jaw in the second that made him groggy and he finished the bout on instinct alone. Moret, as usual, crashed through with a splendid boxing exhibition to put Navy out in front at this stage. " Goose " Swan was going great guns and had a big edge on Struble until the third round when the Penn State mittman crashed one to his jaw staggering him. Swan, however, was not to be denied and he stepped out in the fourth round to clinch the bout and the meet. McAndrews scored over Chappie in the heavyweight scran. making the final score 4-3. Syracuse ' s Orangemen were treated to a rough evening on the following Saturday and if Cooke had won, the match would have been a clean sweep for Navy. Fitzgerald ' s opponent must have been propped up because Fitzgerald hit him with everything but the ring and the spectators ' derbies but still he stayed up. Wallace and Hall scored easy victories. Kosco, fighting his first scrap, took four rounds to get started but in the last round his man was hanging on at the bell. Swan did the expected and Chappie finished with a knockout. FITZGERALD HALL Page Three Hundred Ninety-seven DALLMAN MUSTIN SWIMMING THE season opened with a 43-19 victory over Pennsylvania, the visitors garnering first honors in only two events. The next week the strong Rutgers squad invaded the home pool with every expectation of swamping the Navy. The meet was closely contested, and although Rutgers captured most of the firsts, we picked up enough seconds and thirds to remain in the running all the time. A first by McDougal in the breast stroke, and another by Lucas in the dive, made the score close enough for the relay to decide the meet. The Navy quartet of Ashworth, Green, Phillips and Mustin, in a thrilling 200-yard battle, broke the pool record for the event, and won the meet for Navy. After easily disposing of C. C. N. Y. to the tune of 56-6, the Navy swimmers journeyed to New Haven to meet Yale ' s powerful team. The Sons of Eli proved a shade too strong for us and we found ourselves beaten 44-18. However, the score is no true indication of the closeness of the individual events.

Page Three Hundred Ninety-eight Phillips and Mustin proved themselves two of the best sprintets in the east when they captured the 50 and 100 respectively from the Yale stars. The next night Columbia was met in New York and again we bowed, this time the score being 35-27. The outcome of the meet hinged on the relay, which the home team won when our quartet was disqualified, although Navy actually finished first. The following week found us facing Dartmouth. In a one-sided meet the visitors were subdued 51-11. The feature performance of the day was Mustin ' s 440, in which he clipped 8.4 seconds off the pool record. Princeton, undefeated until the Navy meet, had high hopes of vic- tory. However, the Blue and Gold swimmers, undaunted by the Tigers ' reputation, proceeded to score a 38-24 victory without much trouble. The close of the 1930 season wound up the swimming careers of Captain Phillips, Simons, Alexander, Woodruff, Dallman and Ensey. Phillips was the mainstay of the team for three years and was one of the finest sprinters to ever wear the Navy blue. Simons and Alexander swam side by side in the backstroke for four years. Beginning as Plebes they took care of this event in good style all during their Academy careers. Dallman was a varsity diver for three years and boasts an N-star for his work in the 1928 Intercollegiates. ALEXANDER STARTING PRACTICE Page Three Hundred Ninety-nine WATER POLO The Naval Academy has always been represented by good water polo teams. In the days when the old pool was in use, Coach Foster developed aggre- gations that were undefeatable in shallow water. When the shift was made to deep water he was not quite so successful at first, but within a comparatively short time began to turn out winners. The first Intercollegiate title was won in 1929 when Yale was defeated for the first time. 1930 saw a repetition of this and with greater ease, so that it looks as if a water polo system that will produce winning teams in years to come has been inaugurated. The Water Polo team lost two great backs by graduation and, with much tearing of Coach Foster ' s hair and many qualms, we met a strong Pennsylvania team in the opening game. Frank ' s worry as to the strength of the Navy ' s defense was over by the end of the first half — Myers and Seely had proved their ability to hold the positions of those who had gone before. Rutgers and C. C. N.

In defeating the Bulldogs and the Lions, by overwhelming scores, Navy retained the Intercol- legiate title. O ' Bierne led the scoring against Yale, while Joe Ruddy piled up most of the counters in the Columbia game. The Dartmouth and Syracuse games, closing the season, gave the second and third strings a chance to show their prowess. There were no outstanding players among our mermen, as evidenced by the season ' s scoring of all the forwards. All the boys stood well up in the league standing, and there was no great difference between the total scores of Ruddy, O ' Bierne and Hayward. Very few points were scored against Huff, Myers, and Seely — the backs. The Navy ' s average was 66 points to only 1 1 for the opponents each game. Our teamwork was superb, and it is the opinion of those that have been watching the game since its infancy, that Coach Foster ' s 1930 team was the greatest in the history of the collegiate sport. All of the team can point with pride to the fact that, for the second time within the four years we were in the league, we walked away with the championship. RUDDY PRACTICE » s a ft.a. CM . c i qi . Page Four Hundred One • » FENCING THE 1929 fencing team brought the Little Iron Man home, but left the new Three Weapon Trophy, as well as the Sabre and Epee trophies, in the hands of our friendly enemies, Yale and Army. It was then up to the 1930 team to keep the " little fellow, " and bring him the company for which he yearned. The schedule opened as usual with several national sword clubs. The team laid away the Jay Sanford Saltus Club, the Penn Athletic Club, and the New York Fencers ' Club, in succession. These teams are composed of some of the foremost fencers in the United States. Then the collegiate meets began; and, in the first, Yale just managed to squeeze a one-point victory from us. Not to be dis- heartened by this setback, the team came through the next week to win from M. I. T. by a large score. Hamilton, Princeton, Penn, and the Philadelphia Sword Club completed the dual meet schedule. Then came the Inter-Collegiate semi-finals and finals the final tests of supremacy in collegiate fencing. As for the composition of the team, the foil team was composed of Howard, Steere and Grant — veterans — with Allen, Wright and Gimber furnishing plenty of competition for positions. Murray and Anderson also did excellent work with this weapcn. The epee team had Wilbur and Ellis back from the previous year, with Van Evera a close third, and Munson right behind him.

A successful team must have a good coaching staff. Ours was headed by " Daddy " Heintz, sword- master, and coach of many a winning Navy team. Mr. Heintz ' s lessons and personal interest in each and every man did much to promote good will and excellent teams. His able assistants were M. Dela- drier for the epee, and M. Pirotte for the sabre. Both were Belgian fencing masters who came over to teach the Navy teams how things are done on the Continent. It would require pages to list their various accomplishments in the fencing world; it must suffice to say that there were no better coaches in the country. Prof. Fournon, of the Modern Language Department, to whom much of the credit for winning the Iron Man is due, was not with the team because of the press of work in his department. When Captain Stewart left the Academy in 1929, after placing fencing on its feet once more, it was realized how difficult it would be to fill his place as officer representative. However, in Lt. George Calnan, Olympic star and a national champion for many years, the right man was found. Every night found him working first with the foils team, and then with the epee and sabre teams, trying to polish their fighting forms. Unfortunately, in the middle of the season, Lt. Calnan was detached. But again Lady Luck was with us, when Lt. Commander Norman Scott accepted the post. An enthusi- astic fencer himself, and captain of the team his first class year, he made himself one of the squad. ON GUARD Page Four Hundred Three ■9 9 9 » - GYM The early season prospects for another Intercollegiate Championship team were not too bright. However, what material we did have started working a little earlier and a little harder than usual, with the result that Navy had a championship team whose strength will not soon be forgotten. The Second Class developed some good men during their summer at the Academy, and with the additions from the 1929 Plebe team, the squad was exceptionally well balanced. Captain Tom Hughes, a consistent winner on the horizontal bar the previous season, was pushed by Stauffer and Parker, who both promise well for coming seasons. Nevertheless, Hughes led his team in point scoring and was Navy ' s all-around star at the Intercollegiates. Adamson ' s place on the horse was disputed by Stewart and Shaffer. With Nuessle they united to take the firsts, seconds and thirds. Cushing and Craig, veterans on the parallel bars, were aided by Munger, the Youngster contribution. On the rings, the old combination of Lockwood, Steiner and Hughes continued its prac- tice of refusing to allow our opponents to score in this event.

The most sensational development of the year was that of King on the rope. During his Second Class summer he climbed up the twenty-foot rope with amazing speed, kept in practice during September leave, and when the season began he was unbeatable in Intercollegiate circles. The start towards the latest of many championships came with a victory over a strong Temple team. The Philadelphia gymnasts were able to obtain but twelve points while the Navy team was scoring forty-two. Then came New York University with, as far as we were concerned, a one-man team, Herman Witzig, the Olympic star. He scored fifteen points against us, but as his teammates could not keep the Navy stars from taking a single one of the thirty-nine possibles that remained, we won easily. Princeton, always a strong contender, had a team of which she had become unusually proud, but the Tiger dreams were shattered when she had to be satisfied with a few second and third places, and a score of Navy 44, Princeton 10. The winning of the triangular meet with Dartmouth and Massachusetts Institute of Technology at Hanover, kept the D ' Eliscu Cup, symbolic of the Intercollegiate Team Championship, secure in the Navy trophy room. To our coaches goes much of the credit for our successful season. Mr. Mang has been at the Academy since 1906, during which time the gym team has won 95 out of 99 meets and taken the Intercollegiate Championship eight times in eight entries. Mr. Sazama, who has coached here since 1914, gave valuable assistance to the varsity in addition to his work with the Plebe team.

When the Regiment returned from Christmas leave in 1928 it found a new board track laid on Farragut Field, directly in back of the gymnasium. This was the beginning of a train- ing program that has grown until it has assumed the proportions of an additional winter sport. The climax of each season is the Handicap Meet held the latter part of February to end the training campaign. Anyone who has done any work at all is eligible to compete, so that novices who have never run before, get a chance to race. This meet has been added to the list of class competi- tions for the Harvard Shield, and the points scored by the various classes help them in the contest for this famous trophy. In 1929-30 an effort was made to send a relay team to the Millrose Games in New York. All plans were laid and a great deal of interest was aroused. Prospects for victory looked excellent as the team was doing some splendid running. Unfortunately, a week before the meet was scheduled, the officials did not approve the plans and the trip was cancelled. Next year it is confidently expected, however, that Navy will be represented on the boards at at least one of the big indoor meets. r ) ) JOGGING AROUND i V cwcw cwcwc cwcwcwcwcwcw s 5 Page Four Hundred Six BASMTMI ) I BASKETBALL t all began back in the summer of ' 29- Some of the regulars on the cruise downed the Champions of Spain, while the Second Class aided the Plebes to get into their basketball form here at the Academy. It continued from the beginning of " Ac " year with scattered practices throughout the fall. Then, football season closed with a bang and the basketball squad took the court and really commenced practice in earnest. The squad had been well founded in the rudiments of the game and had attained a real eye for the basket in the preseason practices. Johnny Wilson and Bill Ault aided by " Kid " Dennett, of ' 28 fame, put the team into fighting, trim. They fashioned a good second team and an excellent first string. Everyone worked cheerily and with a will; stars were missing but Johnny proved conclusively that the team was the unit he was striving for and not the individual ; that smooth plays made the numerous goals possible. The team wore knee pads this year ; and they were after the ball all the time, even on their knees. They played a successful season, both rough and full of many adverse breaks, and like true Navy men, overcame their obstacles, rarely repeating their mistakes. ■ BASKETBALL SQUAD Back Row, Left to Right: Mayo {Manager), Rogers, Frazer.

Page Four Hundred Eight William and Mary-Lafayette-Wake Forest Colestock was the leader of his team, in spirit and action, even more than in name. He set his teammates an example and placed the goal so far ahead that they were ever striving to gain it. Whenever Ed was set for a " snow bird shot " the boys on the scoreboard knew how it would come out and the two points were checked up even before he had retired to the jumping circle. Ed captained a determined team; a team that played for the team; a team that incidentally aided him in checking up those 160 points that placed him first on the scoring list. The team made its debut by defeating William and Mary 30-29. This game was won by an all first class team led by Captain Colestock, who contributed most of the points. Lafayette dropped the second game to our fast breaking team 58-24. The second team nearly put the first string to shame by their excellent exhibition and proved that no one had a sure berth on the squad. The main feature of the game was the smoothly timed out of bounds play from Reinhard to Colestock. We took the camp of the Wake Forest enthusiasts by a score of 39-20. The nets seemingly held a Navy charm — Wake Forest couldn ' t seem to connect with the back board properly. At this point it appeared as though the team was going to do things in a big way this year; Johnny had taken one regular, a couple of subs, and a couple of near subs from last year and molded them into a first-class aggregation. i COLESTOCK SHOOTING cwcwi c . Page Four Hundred Nine W wr AROUND THE BASKET BAUER ALLEN Duke-Pennsylvania-Catholic U.-Maryland NEXT the Duke Blue Devils from Durham, North Carolina, came to us with a championship Southern Conference team of veterans and wrested the laurels from our snappy quintet by beating us at our own game. As a result we slept that night with a score of 47-29 to dream about. The Penn machine eked out a 2-point lead from us in our next game. The feature of this closely played, tightly guarded game was the 16 fouls turned into counters out of the 18 foul goals tried. We retrieved ourselves when Catholic University came down to meet a determined Navy team that was firing even down to the third string, who helped to beat them 49-20. A series of two more defeats at the hands of Maryland and Penn made the team a bit downcast, but not beaten. Maryland journeyed to the Academy to punish 43-39 and we went to Pennsylvania to be beaten 29-20. The Randolph-Macon and Western Maryland victories put the team on its feet again, ready to go. ?

The score: 39-29- The Virginia Cavaliers stooped to the Navy gentlemen and accepted a 55-38 defeat; a defeat not difficult to administer. " Ed " did a great game of guarding their threatening center and scored often besides. The team journeyed to Princeton to bow to defeat at the claws of the Tiger, 27-23. We came back for blood, which we drew from the George Washington Colonials, at a rate of 45-18. They were but a poor match for our smooth-working machine. We salted away the Georgetown football game played on the court. The team was at its best and downed the Hilltoppers, who accepted a 37-29 defeat. Although the team played good ball against North Carolina and staged numerous rallies, they could not overcome their opponent ' s lead. CAMPBELL REINHARD P r LOWRANCE GETS THE TAP cw gw.

The former Olympic hurdler instilled real life into a tottering sport. He took a run-down outfit and built up a snappy team that was full of life and pep. In doing this he was ably assisted by Commander Farber, the Track representative. The 1929 season was considered a success even though two meets were lost. The team was handicapped by the absence of most of its stars, owing to the ravages of the Academic Departments early in the season. This drawback was never entirely overcome, as a lack of conditioning held these men back when they did join the squad. As it was, however, the Wvfj lAVY ' AVY J HAVY AVY WavJ UAVyi pVYi TRACK SQUAD Jff Raw, Left to Right-.

Easton, Karrer, Lloyd, Rodgers, Kohlhas, White, Cook, Johnson, Highi.ey I Page Four Hundred Fourteen team had well-balanced strength and managed to more than hold its own in the majority of meets. The greatest strength of the team lay in the fact that there were three or four evenly matched competitors in each event. Johnson and MacKenzie battled all season for first honors in the sprints, and when June week rolled around it was still a toss-up as to who would win. With Lloyd on the sidelines most of the season, Briner stepped in as the all-around man. He ran the quarter or the half, depending on which he was needed in, and doubled in brass by hurdling when required. Allen was the best miler on the squad and won every one of his races. Another undefeated runner was Karrer in the two-mile. From the second meet on he ran within a few seconds of the Naval Academy record in every race but lacked the punch to hang up a new mark. " in the field events Cook was the leader. He broke the Academy record in the shot and was also a strong competitor in the discus. Wright was our best bet in the discus but he also cleared six feet in the high jump against Ohio State. White and Kohlas finished one-two in the pole vault all season, while Strohbehn was the broad jump star. He broke the Acad- emy record twice in practice, but couldn ' t manage it in competition. Not only were the first stringers a well balanced unit but also there were men in every event to take care of second and third places in good style. Fraser, Thorn, James, Hansen, Price, Bourgeois, and Webb got places when they were needed to help eke out a victory. The squad was a well-balanced one as a whole and was a credit to the great work which Coach Thomson has accomplished since he came here by making the Regiment track-con- scious. The plebe squad was in the same condition as the varsity, more men were out than ever before and as all sports depend on new material for continued strength, track looks good for some years to come. P ? OVER ■ • - " - ' ■ iifcui Page Four Hundred Fifteen ? r ALLEN WINS THE MILE BOSTON COLLEGE Navy opened its 1929 track season by scoring an 86-40 victory over Boston College. This score was accounted for mostly by Navy ' s superiority in the field events, in which she garnered all but nine points. Cook tossed the shot to within inches of the Academy record. Strobehn, Johnson, and Bourgeois finished one, two, three in the broad jump; while the final check-up divided the honors in the pole vault between Kohlhas and White. The discus, won by Captain Wilczewski, Boston ' s high point man, gave the Bay Staters their only first place in the field events. Karrer showed remarkable form in the two-mile, beginning a winning streak which was destined to last all season. The century proved to be the most exciting race of the after- noon when four men finished within inches of one another. The judges picked McCabe of Boston for first and Johnson of Navy for second. Fraser, by virtue of his twin victories in the hurdles, was hieh scorer for Navy. BAUER OVER fc . a a a a i. a a a a a. 1 I 1 s 1 ..hU J cwcw c Page Four Hundred Sixteen WILLIAM AND MARY With two successive victories to their credit, William and Mary brought a team that was very strong in some events. As this strength gave William and Mary the majority of her points in the track events, the field honors were left to Navy. One of the best performances of the afternoon was produced by Allen of Navy. Running the mile instead of the usual 880 yards, as for- merly, he was clocked in excellent time. Queensbury of the visitors broke the tape in both sprint events ahead of Johnson and MacKenzie of Navy, to become the high scorer for his team. In the hurdles Captain Lloyd and Fraser counted for one and two, while the third place tallies were secured by Briner and Strohbehn in the highs and lows, respec- tively. Briner celebrated his return to the 440 by winning over Davis of the visitors. Karrer repeated his performance in the two-mile, cutting off a few seconds. Again the visitors took but one first place in the field events. Baldacci of William and Mary threw the javelin several feet further than Lewis and Ellis, who had taken one and two the previous week. The final score turned out to be the same as the week before; namely, Navy 86, William and Mary 40. The honors for the highest individual score were brought to Navy by Captain Lloyd ' s 16 points. THE START OF THE HALF t ( s - ■ - - ■ ■ ■ - ■ • ■ • ULtat Cfc gfr, Page Four Hundred Seventeen ALL OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND The next week of the season the team showed the results of the experience gained from competition. The times turned in, as well as the number of firsts, were greatly improved; Navy gar- nered ten of the fourteen firsts. Of the four taken by the visitors two were in the field and two were in the track. Kinnamon turned in the best performance for Maryland by taking six points in the hurdles; Karrer and Hansen began a string of firsts and seconds in the two-mile. The high jump ended in a four-way tie for first place between Bauer, Freshour, Woods and Wright, all of Navy. The pole vault also wound up with Navy men sharing the honors, White, Kohlhas and Miles being the leaders. Such a good ' showing in the field events was welcomed, for it proved strength where for- merly existed the team ' s greatest weakness. The success of Coach Thompson ' s new system seemed more and more evident as the season progressed. TOPPING THE HURDLES Page Four Hundred Eighteen BOURGEOIS GETS THERE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA The Virginia team included such stars as Captain Harry Flippin, former National pentathlon champion and winner of the high hurdles at the Penn Relays in the time of 15.2 seconds; and Wisner, who starred in the broad jump with a jump of 24 feet iy 2 inches. In spite of all the dope sheets, Navy, spurred on by the presence of the Secretary of the Navy, came out on the top of a 76-50 score. In the field events Cook of the Cavaliers won the pole vault at the same time that Cook of Navy earned the five-point place in the shot. Flippin beat out Fraser to take both hurdles. He was not so fortunate in the century, however, in which Johnson led him to the tape. Clean sweeps of all three places in the quarter, half, and mile, fell to Navy, while Vir- ginia could boast of but one, the javelin. Karrer and Hansen again finished one and two in the two-mile. The time for this event lacked but four seconds of the Academy record. Stroh- behn provided the spectacular when on his last jump of the afternoon he leaped 8 inches farther than the best Virginia mark. THE HIGHS Page tour Hundred Nineteen i f } ) I i i i BREAKING THE WORLDS RECORD OHIO STATE The hardest meet of the year brought some surprising results. The reputation of our track was blasted by Simpson of Ohio State when he ran the " 100 " in 9-6 seconds and slowed down in the 220 to finish in 21.8 seconds. Rockaway, who had recently broken the world ' s record for the low hurdles, made a good showing by winning his event. Navy ' s strength manifested itself in the longer races. Allen in the mile and Karrer in the two-mile kept clean their slates in their respective events. White did the unexpected by taking second in the broad jump as well as second in the pole vault. Strohbehn nosed out White for first place honors in the broad jump. The last meet of the season found Navy with the best all-around and well-balanced team in years. Coleman of the Plebes, Cook, Strohbehn and Wright will un- doubtedly change the figures of some of those old Academy track records before the close of next year ' s season. FIRST AND SECOND FOR NAVY « we- - . ■ «g- - y cw cv ewcv K wiW tWCW( M Pjge Four Hundred Twenty 1 ( J MSBB bb BASEBALL The baseball season of 1929, under the new system of coaching inaugurated by Comman- der Ingram, showed a great improvement of the team over that of the year before. The green team that had done little but show promise in 1928, came through with a fine record of ten games won and five games lost for a percentage of .666. True, several of the big games were chalked up on the debit side of the ledger; but as a whole, the team, handi- capped by injuries to several players during the season, did very well. The coaching of the team was handled by Lt.-Comdr. W. A. ( " Spuds " ) Hicks, assisted by " Kid " Mohler, a one-time professional player and manager in the Pacific Coast League, and by Lt. " Nemo " Gaines. Mr. Hicks, known as the best catcher Navy ever had, moulded the boys into a real team. He proved to all who followed the team that he could teach the game as well as play it; all hands were sorry to see him leave.

He will be Head Coach in 1930. " Nemo " Gaines ' s helpful hints to pitchers and his early season han- dling of the Yannigans did much to make the team the real aggregation that it was. The season of 1929 was the first season without the traditional Army game since the war. To take the place of the Army game a number of hard games were scheduled, climaxed by the Notre Dame game as the June Week attraction. The Washington Senators and the Baltimore Orioles were scheduled, but those games were both " rained out. " It is hoped that they can be scheduled again for 1930 and succeeding years. The season opened with a win over Penn State College. Johnson was in the box and turned in a well pitched game, considering the cold wind that swept the field. The Uni- versity of Vermont game was a walk-away, since they had suffered the loss of all their first-year regulars. INDOOR PRACTICE Page Four Hundred Twenty-three YALE — WESTERN MARYLAND — RICHMOND Yale was a game that proved the adage of not counting chickens before the shells are broken. Will anyone forget that seventh inning, when seven Yale runs crossed the plate, which, with two more in the eighth and ninth, converted a 9-4 victory to a 13-9 defeat? The University of Richmond was taken in our stride. It was a costly victory, however, for Biddy Fitzgerald and Bill Gentner crashed in center field and Biddy was out for the rest of the season with a broken jaw. We next squeezed out a victory over the University of Maryland, 11-10. Western Maryland then took us over the hurdles to the tune of 1-8, which resulted chiefly from the great pitching of Keen, their ace. The game with Western Maryland ended the early season period of poor playing. The team then got together and played good ball. Washington and Lee, Duke and Catholic U. went down in order. Duke, with a great team, and incidentally the same team that had beaten the Navy the year before, furnished the best game of the season to date. The next game at Philadelphia we dropped to Perm State, whom we had beaten earlier in the season. ? MILLER ivy --- If Jh j ■ i YOU ' RE OUT!

William and Mary, Georgetown, Western Maryland again, Mount Saint Mary ' s and Loyola were the games remain- ing before the Notre Dame Finale. All of them were hard games and though we had barely made a winning percentage, the team was playing the best ball shown during the season. We took William and Mary ' s scalp; Georgetown, with White, a great college pitcher, in the box, took ours. Western Maryland ' s Keen was found for quite a few hits and eight runs. This time we beat them to the tune of 8-2. A neat game was chalked up for us when we counted four to Mount Saint Mary ' s three. The Loyola game was ended by darkness with the score 2-2. Notre Dame came out of the west with a team that had had a season similar to ours. They had a young team that had been de- feated early in the season, but it had then spurted and at the time we met them they were at their peak. We f stuck with them for eight innings. Wilson was in form and pitched good ball, thus suc- cessfully winding up a great career as a Navy pitcher. Mr GUBBINS SAFE AT SECOND ■ a » a a , . » a a a a LOWRANCE t i i 5 tKtVtKtktKtVtW Page Four Hundred Twenty-five A HOMER STROH N THE TEAM otre Dame — good enough to win all but that proverbial tenth game. Notre Dame won the game with a home run in the ninth, bringing home two runs after we had tied the score at four all in the eighth. Three times during the course of the game Notre Dame had a lead of two runs, and considering the pitching that both teams were receiving, that was a commanding margin; but twice the Navy team tied the score. The team that took the field during the greater part of the season lined up with Gubbins behind the bat, Wilson in the box, Miller on first, O ' Toole at second, Lowrance covering third, Ashworth at short- stop and Byng, Gentner and Stroh in the outfield. House stepped in at third when Lowrance went to the hospital late in the season, and Fitzgerald started the season in the outfield. Brandley and Johnson did good work in the box on the occasions when Wilson did not pitch. Moore did relief work occasionally. Scull, though he did not play a game, did fine work for his team by his yeoman service in the bull pen. " DOC " THROWS ONE BY ASHWORTH _ f 1 I Page Four Hundred Twenty-six A HIT THE TEAM The work of Miller on first was little short of big league standards. Remember Jerry stretching at full length in the dirt, spearing a wild heave from the other side of the diamond? His double play in the Notre Dame game also stands out. Gentner ' s great hitting and fielding ranked him as our outfield luminary. No one liked to face big Doc Wilson when his fast one was working; that is, no one but Gubbins, who caught him in every game. Gubbins takes rank with the best of college catchers and a little heavier work with the stick would place him at the top. Lowrance ' s fielding and throwing were his big assets. Stroh took the place of the injured Biddy and played good ball, hitting and fielding well. Byng ' s hits brought Bill Gentner and Jerry Miller home many a time. Ashworth and O ' Toole solved Coach Hicks second base problem nicely. Bill Gentner is the 1930 skipper, with Al West taking care of the manager ' s end.

George arrived from Canada early in March and, looking over his tribe of last year ' s " near Olym- pics, " found everything necessary for a successful season. With " Rags " Parrish, that 150 pounds of fighting he-man, at the helm, and plenty of veterans back with the sticks, there were few to doubt that the Blue and Gold team would avenge the Maryland upset of last season. The " Ac " department had its little fun and the injuries were numerous, but in three short weeks George had a team on hand to give N. Y. U. a drubbing at 11-0. The big Violet team started strong; but after twe dangerous threats had failed before Dally and Spring, their pace slackened, and soon Captain Parrish and the boys had them at their mercy. In spite of Litchman ' s great work as N. Y. U. goalie, the " Hamaneggers " would not be denied and six men found their mark before the end. Randolph-Macon was next. ■ i ' :.■■ 4f Ml . m LACROSSE SQUAD Top Row, Left to Right: Haven, Beans, Whelchel, Swan, Hagberg, Kirkpatrick, Barrett, White, Campbell, Arthur, Kohr, Holmes Third Row, Standing: Peterson, C.

Parrish was good for 6 while Cashman and Miller made 3 each. The sub team took charge late in the game and made a fine showing. King managed to drive one through them, however, and the scoring ended at 13-1. Lehigh sent a group of fast men down the next week-end, but Crichton and Dyer held them with a strong defensive game while the Blue and Gold attack worked in perfect coordination to make the final count 11-1. On the 20th Worden Field resounded with Lafayette ' s Indian war-cries ringing with fierce deter- mination, but outside of Captain Jewett ' s long range shot past Welsh in the second half, these boys had little to offer in the way of lacrosse. Parrish again took the lead, and at half time the smooth- working attack had made it 12-0. There was a little slowing down when the subs took the field but Peterson, in for Parrish, had little trouble in making his 5.

The " ole " Navy right was still surging and the Golden Tornado was swept away by a powerful attack which netted 14 goals, while the defense, backed by the perfect goal playing of Welsh, held the Yellow Jackets scoreless. The 4th of May found Navy in mid-season form and ready to tackle the strong Syracuse club in their " own back yard. " The boys up in New York, after a four years ' rest, were anxious for another try at our record. The Hillmen carried the fight most of the first half and were hard to hold in check; but after the first shock was over our attack made themselves at home and took up the fight in great style, and a few minutes of hard and fast lacrosse netted 5 goals. Syracuse, starting the second half 4 points behind, made a great effort to come back ; but our defense arose to the occasion and Campbell, Arthur and Welsh were too good for their best efforts. It was another Navy day at 6-3. One week later the " Hamaneggers " had to turn out some real lacrosse to stop Penn State on the short side of a 7-4 score. The " Nittany Lions " had a fast and hard-working team that knew enough tricks to make that game one of the most interesting of the season. Two desperate teams were fighting hard, and Navy was forced almost to the limit to keep their lead of 3 goals during the first half. In the second half the visitors ' attack worked better and they staged a rally that netted 4 goals. However, the Navy attack also found their pace and they came back strong to score 4 goals themselves. The excellent passwork of Conn aided Spring and Cashman to bear the brunt of the scoring, while Haven played a fine game at center. Seven down and two to go.

Our defense played its usual airtight game, while Allen, Cashman and Castree led the pack on a scoring spree. Penn set a fast pace — the kind of pace at which the Navy team excels — and consequently suffered for their folly. Maryland was coming on the range in just two weeks. Their powerful attack had made a very impressive record while their defense had held most opponents helpless. George Finlayson had a job before him, but his material was excellent and a few finishing touches were sufficient to place a " Blue and Gold " team on the field June 1st that was able to claim a great victory. In defeating Maryland, already conquerors of the Army, Navy not only avenged last season ' s defeat, but clinched the Intercollegiate Championship title for 1929. This battle between All-Americans will be remembered as one of the fiercest ever to take place on Worden Field. True to tradition, Navy started the scoring when Parrish counted after two minutes of play. Evans, Maryland ' s great scoring ace, broke away from Spring long enough to even the score just three minutes later. Both teams now settled down to some real maneuvering, but fifteen minutes passed before Halloway scored again for Maryland. Parrish, playing his last game for Navy, was not to be outdone, and leading the Navy attack, through some flawless playing, broke up Maryland ' s defense.

Navy had the situation well in hand, and Maryland was unable to threaten until near the end when Evans ran wild and tied the score. Cashman soon pulled Navy into the lead with a nice long drive past the Maryland goalie; and Spring, Swan and Campbell, leading a great Navy defense, stopped every effort of Evans and his cohorts in the final minutes, and the game was Navy ' s at 4-3. Thus ended a perfect season. Nary 11 13 11 17 14 6 7 7 RECORD . . N. Y. U. . . . . . R. M. . . . Lehigh . . . . . Lafayette . . Georgia Tech . . Syracuse . . . Penn State . . Pennsylvania . .

Such is the preliminary winter training for those gifted with " strong backs and weak minds. " The spring session seems an endless procession of long rows to Round Bay, interspersed with those occasional " brushes " that serve to break the monotony of the long pulls.

Despite early season reverses, the crew finally reached Old Navy form, and at Poughkeepsie was declared by the " Old Man " as the equal of any Navy crew that ever took to the water. M. I. T. offered the first opposition of the season; and a cold, rainy, April afternoon saw " Dope " Strong ' s J. V. ' s romp away from an even break at the " Little Red House, " to a three-length victory at the finish line. The Varsity, however, rowing a short, fast stroke, was overtaken by a strong, evenly balanced boatload of Technicians.

But " Young Dick " was not to be denied, and after a race made interesting by floating barrels, barges, baskets and banana peelings, his proteges crossed the line with a three-length margin. Navy was out for blood ! The Orange Oars were striking, and Syra- cuse ' s big stroke, Bill Freeman, looked formidable enough, but it was Navy ' s turn to throw in the coxswain. For on a rough, windy day, the Navy crew left the New Yorkers five lengths behind. The Burgess- McClure combination, this time rowing as the J. V. ' s, also " clicked " and won by a margin of a length. In a closely contested race, the Plebes were nosed out by the Orange Frosh. With three triangular races, and the Secretary of the Navy as the starter, it looked like " Derby Day on the Severn. " Harvard and Penn- sylvania furnished the opposition. The first race found the new-born Navy lightweights in action for the first time. After several false starts, mo PLEBE CREW • NOW DON ' T RACE ' ' Fage Four Hundred Thirty-eight BURGESS GIESE RIVERO GRAY HARVARD — PENNSYLVANIA the crews were under way. Navy dropped a length at the start, and after that the crews retained their same relative positions all the way down the course. The J. V. ' s made a clean sweep of their race, the Pennsylvania crew trailing by several lengths. The last race was perhaps the most interesting one of the season. Navy and Penn " see-sawed " for the lead all the way down the course, and after a thrilling finish, with both crews slashing the water at a 43 or 44, the Quakers won by a margin of a few inches. The Harvard I - J crew was two lengths behind. ■BBHflH When the Navy squad arrived at Camp Ingram, two weeks before the Poughkeepsie Regatta, no one conceded it a bare chance. A week later, however, they were on equal footing with California and Columbia. Navy ' s time in the official trials is still a matter of wonder in rowing circles. The big day finally arrived, and what a day it was!

The story of that hectic race needs no retelling; but we are proud to be able to point to that 1929 Poughkeepsie Regatta as evidence of what Navy can do after grievous disappointments, and in the most trying circumstances. The season this spring (1930) is ample justification of our faith in " Old Dick " Glendon and in his able protege, " Buck " Walsh.

Year after year, regardless of the opposition, the boys continue to shoot straight and wind up the season either Intercollegiate Champions or very close to it. Rifle shooting, besides being a very interesting sport, is also valuable training for an officer. This, perhaps, accounts for our success in this branch of athletics. The 1929 season, which was on the high plane of former years, opened when the Maryland National Guard was defeated handily, followed by George Washington, another easy victory. The District of Columbia National Guard, winner of the National Guard Championship at the last National Rifle Matches, gave Navy one of its two defeats. This was the closest match of the year, a bare seven points being the margin of defeat. The big victory of the year was the next one, the Intercollegiate Championship, which Navy took, with George Washington, V. M. I. and Harvard trailing in the order named. A Navy man was also the individual winner when Loomis carried off first honors. The annual classic with the Seventy-first Regiment was held at Camp Smith, Peekskill, N. Y. The Navy won easily and the bronze trophy. " Little David, " returned to its niche in Dahlgren Hall, emblematic of a successful season.

Two weeks in Dahlgren, and the rain canceling the first meet with Columbia, gave the boys a month ' s practice before the meets began. Then Yale breezed in and took us over the bumps by a 6-3 victory. Each match was strongly contested but each Yale man seemed to have a slight edge on his opponent. Navy ' s doubles combinations were strong and the doubles team scored twice. Villanova came with rain and the game was called. Franklin and Marshall ran right into the middle of a strong Navy comeback and went home at the short end of a 7-2 score. Rain again washed out a meet — this one with Lehigh.

Georgetown, then Duke, Swarthmore, Lafayette, George Washington and Maryland all fell before the Navy rackets. Penn proved an exception; this powerful Pennsylvania team threw the proverbial monkey wrench into the clockwork for a 3-6 loss at Philadelphia. The comeback from this started a little late. N. Y. U. caught the boys still badly battered, and plunged in to defeat them 1-5 — chalking up the worst defeat of the season. When the comeback finally did start it swept a smooth and virile Penn State team to a 6-3 defeat to end the season. Farrin and McRoberts proved an almost unbeatable combination. Jimmie could hang his head over a very small number of defeats. Their graduation leaves a gaping hole in the ranks. Mervin Halstead, captain- elect for ' 30 ' s court artists, was a valuable consistent player with one of the fastest drives on the squad. Halstead and Fenton usually turned in the second doubles victory every week. Salisbury, Lucas, Young and Robertson fought for the next two doubles combinations, and all saw service, both in singles and doubles. Germany was prevented from dis- playing to the full his worth by disciplinary difficulties. A hard, driving and entirely successful season was the result, and a strong, powerful team for 1930 is the prospect. SALISBURY ' SERVE ' Page Fou Hundred Forty-three 1 9 ' f } fcrfi ' • - " ■ ■ ' •- GOLF With the growth in popularity of golf over the world at large, there came a corresponding rise in interest within the walls of our own Naval Academy. People who had never heard of golf clubs before began swinging them and trying to play. The golf course beside the hospital became, as it still is today, a rendezvous for hordes of First Classmen on Wednesday and Sunday afternoons. Dur- ing the spring and fall, and even on the milder days of winter, to play the nine-hole golf course of the Naval Academy was a privilege sought by many. In 1928 the Athletic Department recognized this popularity and fostered the game by providing the services of a professional instructor. Mr. Roach, of the Elkridge Country Club, was engaged and pro- ceeded to build up even more interest. He gave lessons to the First Classmen who desired them and in 1929 arranged for the first tournament for Midshipmen ever held. Three different flights for the various abilities of the competitors were provided, and the competition was keen all the way through. Mr. Roach, who sponsored this tournament to the extent of donating the prizes, hopes to make this an annual affair. The number of good players in the Academy is increasing all the time. If the interest continues to grow, there is no reason why the next few years should not see a Navy golf team competing in intercollegiate circles. PUTTING FOR A PAR 1 i t ( Page Four Hundred Forty-jour ■r ------ ■ - .- ■ -•• y F c- ■0 W JF WJF ' HARVARD SHIELD ' he Harvard Shield, emblematic of the class athletic championship, was first awarded in 1920. It has been won at least once by nearly every class that has graduated from the Academy since its innovation. The competition has been growing keener year by year, until now one sees almost as much spirit exhibited by class teams as by the varsity teams. At first the classes met in every one of the varsity sports and in addition, handball and bowling. In the last few years, however, it has been the tendency of the Athletic Department to eliminate several sports so that there might be greater concentration on the rest. The Shield, and the Intra-Mural sports which it encourages, are a substantial part of the foundation on which our athletic system is based. The class team may not be exactly the cradle of the varsity, but it most certainly is one of the premier sources of material. Not only is the class team of importance because of its benefit to the varsity, but also because of the number of solid hours of pleasure it has afforded to every Midshipman. All of us have at one time or another played a class sport and we all admit that some of our fondest recollections of our years at the Naval Academy are of Sunday after- noons that were spent plugging along in a class game. In the four years in which ' 30 was engaged in this interclass struggle, we were runner-up twice and winner twice. Plebe year we slipped in the spring after leading the other three classes all year. Youngster year the loss of lacrosse cost us the championship. Second Class year was our year and we had the trophy won by the end of the winter sports season. Our last year at the Academy we started slowly but gained momentum during the winter and came out on top. Plebe year it is hardest to win the Shield, not only because of the relative greenness of the class, but also because of the fact that a greater proportion of the class are ineligible because they are play- ing on a plebe varsity squad. In spite of these handicaps, ' 30 finished in the runner-up position during our plebe year, the first class, a larger and more experienced class, leading us to the wire. During that year we won swimming, water polo, boxing, rifle, and gym. The next year we were told that we had to carry the brunt of the varsity competition, and that we did so is attested by the roll of the varsity squads, which showed that seventy percent of the men on the big teams were of the Youngster Class. Handicapped by this consequent lack of material for class teams and by the natural laziness of all youngsters, we again failed to win the championship, finishing in second place. We scored in foot- ball, boxing, wrestling, gym, swimming and baseball. Second class year we finished ahead of the field by virtue of victories in football, soccer, handball, baseball, lacrosse, tennis, basketball, and boxing — nearly a clean sweep. First class year saw ' 30 on top in cross-country, gym, bowling, handball, and boxing. Soccer, always one of our big sports, was cut out in 1929 as was basketball. The loss of these almost sure points placed us at a disadvantage which had to be overcome by hard work on the part of the other teams. a a s -. fc fc mL Page Four Hundred Forty-fire Plebe Year Abbott, J.

This special design guarantees unfailing operation — regardless of the roll of the vessel or the shock of heavy seas. Such service has made C-H Control a symbol of dependability on board ship. For exposed installations, C-H Control is encased impervious to rain, snow or salt spray. Electrical efficiency is maintained in all weather. The standard line of C-H Marine Control Apparatus meets every common need for new or rebuilt ships.

GAUGE shows exact pressure SCHOOLS and colleges alike are welcoming the new 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 .e iH£e without disconnecting pump hose. A. SCHRADER ' S SON, Inc., CHICAGO, Toronto, Brooklyn, London chrader 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.

Naturally, we who build these ships are justly proud of the manner in which they have withstood the severe operating conditions encountered in naval operations. But we also realize that this performance is the result of years of specialization in the manufacture of naval aircraft — of extensive aircraft development work — and of the high quality of materials and workmanship THEIR PLACE NE OF DEFENSE which have gone into their fabrication. • it is this combination of factors that has given Martin aircraft their reputation throughout the Navy for interchange- ability of parts, for resistance to salt water corrosion, for rugged construction, and for reliable power plant installation. • Martin aircraft have always reflected the highest standards of design and construction, and we pledge ourselves that they will always be so designed and built as to be worthy of their place in the Nation ' s first line of defense.

For Navy men in Navy planes flew 14,340 hours for every fatality, and that includes experi- ments of a kind that few would dare to make. Naval efficiency on the ground and aloft grows with every year, and this new record shows again that the U. S. N. in its personnel, facilities and equipment has nothing to take from any navy in the world. And Wright Aeronautical, which supplies so many " Whirlwind " and " Cyclone " engines to Navy planes, is proud to share in this remarkable record. WRIGHT AERONAUTICAL CORPORATION PATERSON, NEW JERSEY A Division of Curtiss-W ' right xux Builders of IMachinery WHEN you see the name " Al- lis-Chalmers " on a piece of machinery, when you read of it in the newspapers or hear it mentioned by others, what picture does it bring into your mind? Do you see the large manufacturing plant in West Allis with its thousands of workers and its hun- dreds of machines for the efficient fabrication of machine parts, or do you see the products of this plant — steam and hydraulic turbines supplying power and light to millions of people, giant rock and ore crushers weighing a million pounds each, pumping engines capable of pumping twenty-five million gallons of water a day, or flour mills with rows of roller mills, sifters, packers, etc. Neither picture is complete in itself. While there is prob- ably no other plant in the world better tooled and equipped to build heavy machinery it is not the plant alone that makes this company famous. Allis-Chalmers is known because of its exten- sive organization, its engineering service and its broad and diversified line of products that reaches into nearly every line of engineering activity. It is the only company able to furnish all of the principal machinery, including electrical equip- ment, for many types of plants. Many cement plants, crushing, screening and gravel plants, flour mills and sawmills, in this and foreign coun- tries are completely equipped with machinery de- signed and built by this organization. The next time you see the name " Allis-Chal- mers " on a motor, a centrifugal pump, a tractor, or any other type of machine, think of the or- ganization that is back of this equipment and that enables this company to produce some of the greatest power, electrical and industrial machin- ery in the world.
