HENRY GARNER CLARK " Pluto " Louisville, Kentucky KENTUCKY — romance, the pursuit of Lady Luck, stubbornness, and friend- ship, that ' s our little Piute, our devil with the women. 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.

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. Duty Officer making reveille inspection: " Mate, has Midn. Hayes turned out yet? " Mate: " Yes, sir. " Former: " Very well, everyone is up then, carry on. " As for Academics, his battles with the Math and Juice departments have been a series of narrow escapes, he having never needed less than 2.8 for the last month ; but just when the " prof " was about to cut another notch on his " slipstick " " Fog " slipped by with a 2.495 average. 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.

WREFORD GOSS CHAPPLE " Wrej " " Moon " Billings, Montana GEORGE EDWARD GARCIA " Beppo " " Georgie " Visalia, California AMONG those present at the judgment day some four years ago was Wreford Chappie, destined to become familiarly known to his ardent admirers in Navy box- ing circles as " Moon. " 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.
