Smith, Phillips, Wright, Eldred, Crosley Executive Department THE mission of the Naval Academy is to mold the material received into educated gentlemen, thoroughly indoctrinated with honor, uprightness, and truth, with practical rather than academic minds, with thorough loyalty to country, with a groundwork of educational fundamentals upon which experience afloat may build the finished naval officer, capable of upholding whenever and wherever may be necessary the honor of the United States; and withal giving due consideration that healthy minds in healthy bodies are necessities for the fulfillment of the individual missions of the graduates; and that the fullest efficiency under this mission can be obtained only if, through humane yet firm and just discipline, the graduates carry into the service respect and admiration for this academy. = s.

This distinction in terms of Gunnery language is the difference between hits and misses — success and failure — victory and defeat. Ballistics, fire-control, torpedoes, mines — the long hours spent in study of these subjects may some day be well rewarded when in battle we hear sung out over JB " No Change — Rapid Fire! " CoMDR.

Page, Magruder, Beaumont, Richards Engineering and Aeronautics A MAN-OF-WAR, be it a battleship, a submarine or an airplane, is a complex engineering machine. Intelligent operation requires supervision and direction by competent engineers. Proficiency in engineering drawing, a thorough study of basic mechanisms and structure and engineering materials, the theory and laws of gases and their application to power machinery, the development of a resourceful mind able to cope with intricate engineering problems — is the aim of the Department of Engineering and Aeronautics.

FATHOMS deep in the icy seas of the North Atlantic, the volunteer divers from the Falcon worked desperately against time and deadly gas to rescue the imprisoned crew of the S-51. Unable to get reliefs, they remained below far longer than it was safe for them, braving the dreaded " bends " in their vain, heroic attempt to save their com- rades. fif BIOGRAPHIES Sf ' biographies O NE would think that after four years together that everybody would know all they wanted to know about everyone else. But, no. You have to compile a biography and extol his merits in no uncertain terms and leave out all about the times he has borrowed money from you and how many times he has gotten under your skin before breakfast and aggravating habits that after awhile become cumulative. So what you see here is the censored edition of our own impressions of our roommates — exaggerated and smoothed over and prettied up by a copyreader. But we ' ve lived with them for four years, so they must be worth while, after all. JX 1 • • • • • iV i JOSEPH BURTON DAVIS " Burt " " Dave " " ].B. " YouNGSTowN, Ohio BURT left many friends and an envi- able four-year high school record as a versatile athlete at Youngstown, Ohio, to be one of ' 32 — a classmate we are all proud to have. The first summer was spent in training for that plebe varsity. In fact, every spring and fall will find Burt playing that game of football with everything that ' s in him. A snapped ankle, leg, a wrist or a hand has made the going all but easy though there is nothing that can keep him out. In the winter boxing takes his time. As a protege of Spike Webb, Burt can hold his own in any ring. For keeping fit he delves into every sport and every spare minute will find him in some corner of the gym. Conscientious work coupled with an old sacred inspiration helps Dave to tackle the academics hard. His many and varied academy activities bring him in close contact with both the officers and men of all four classes. Living a cheerful, serious day — always doing his best to help others — makes Burt a real companion, a perfect shipmate.

DeWITT WOOD SHUMWAY " Dave " " Shum ' " DeClinton " Potsdam, New York DAVE came down from Potsdam, New York, with an old-timer ' s record in baseball. However, his hopes for partici- pation in Navy athletics were shattered when he received a broken condyle and a permanently weakened jaw from a col- lision sustained at Plebe varsity baseball practice. He did not allow over two months at the hospital, during plebe year, to keep him back in the Academics or in making youngster cruise, but kept right in with the rest of the class. Determined to find some useful outlet for those few spare moments, DeWitt turned his attention to music. A group of music lovers could be found in Shum ' s room any time listening to him pound the xylophone or play the cornet. DeWitt could always be depended upon for his best. He laughed off his disappointments and was always ready to start the next morning with a cheery " Let ' s plug ' em today, Burt. " We all know that Dave, through his quiet, determined, and never failing ef- forts, will make his way in the Fleet as he has done here at the Academy. • • • • • I Musical Clubs; 1 Stripe.

" Such a statement might sound a little far-fetched coming from some people, but Lou is the sort of person who can say something like that and make incredulous listeners believe it. In spite of certain utterances like the one that begins this discourse on our hero from the Blue Grass and Horse State, Lou was not given to exaggeration in some things by any means. There was no exaggeration in his actions on the foot- ball field. Who hasn ' t seen him toiling away on Farragut Field during the long fall afternoons — who hasn ' t seen him in a sweat-soaked football suit smashing holes in the line, smearing ball-carriers, and otherwise making things unpleasant for the opposition on Saturday after- noons? He was and is what is known as " one sweet tackle. " Happy-go-lucky, yet still able to shoul- der the heaviest responsibilities ; savvy as the savviest savoir but always eager to learn; Lou will always be remembered as one who richly deserves the respect and admiration that is his. • ••••• 1 Football; Crew; Class President; Pep Committee; N.A.C.A.; N.A.C.A., President; Class Swimming; N.

" Whereupon chairs, tables, beds and even his pals took a terrible drubbin ' , — who can forget those realistic exhibitions " Our Gadge " gave us " Youngster Year " ? Thus began the in- delible impression Ted has upon all of us. As an athlete he is a crack infielder and not a day passes in the spring but that this boy boasts of a swollen hand from stopping hot ones at short. He is cer- tainly faithful to the game, even through- out Second Class Summer, and will no doubt be one of the best by the spring of ' 32. Academics hold no terrors for him be- cause, even though he stayed within these walls during two Christmas leaves, he can still lay them aside for a good " session. " He handles responsibilities like a " chief " and with a memory that would put Rip- ley in the shade, he has a flair for the blase and worldly things of life. We are with you, Ted, whether you are on the China Station or back here with your cheese-knife — may the best be always yours! Baseball, Captain, 1; N.

His period of seclusion was short, however, since his name began to appear promi- nently on the athletic lists and it has re- mained on those lists since then. Al- though best known on the lacrosse team, Sam has been known to engage in foot- ball and basketball, finding time to make the Varsity squads in both sports. Ver- satility is Sam ' s second nature. Sam has not limited himself to gaining fame in the field of sport alone; he is also one of the most popular fellows in the class, both with those in and outside the Academy. His perpetual smile and his ability to decide just what should be done under the prevailing circumstances have contributed much to his popularity, and to the fact that his list of friends and acquaintance is endless. It would be futile to wish Sam " Good luck " since luck plays such a small part in his make-up; rather let us say " Here ' s how to your success in future life, Sam, and may we always be shipmates in spirit if not in the flesh.

GEORGE ELLIS PIERCE " Garge " " Fatbof TULLAHOMA, TENNESSEE BORN in Panama, with an undying thirst — after knowledge; he has spent his life in quenching this thirst, and making various attempts to straighten curly hair. The hair won ' t be straight- ened but the knowledge has been gar- nered from here, there and yonder, and it covers many things, not the least of which is Academics. He proved his versatility by being a member of the water polo squad and the Hop Committee at the same time, and he didn ' t neglect the things in between these extremes. Bad luck made him give up the suicide club, so he spent his time climb- ing ropes for exercise. Blessed with a good nature, a smooth line, a great liking for playing the game, any game, and a wide grin whatever hap- pens, whether it ' s on liberty in Barcelona or taking a bad exam — he takes them as they come. A man who would go through hell ' s fire for a friend, truly one the Navy can be proud to have graduated, and we are proud to have for a classmate, that ' s the Fatboy.

" Stop by the room any time and you will hear Ted patiently explaining something to someone. He is not satisfied with do- ing his own work but is always willing to help a struggling roommate, classmate, oi an unsat plebe. If Teadore knows how, he is always ready to put out the dope. Even though Ted rates among the select few in class standing, he doesn ' t let the academics take all his time, by any means. No football team is complete without its manager; so Ted determined that nothing should be lacking in the Navy football team, and consequently became varsity manager. Ted ' s good nature and willing smile help to pass away the gloomiest moments of Academy life. Freely lending a help- ing hand and a little encouragement at all times has made everlasting friends for Teadore. Carry on the way you have started, Ted, and your naval career will be something to be proud of. • • : r Varsity Football Manager; Plebe Ten- nis Squad; Log Staff; Lucky Bag; Reception Committee; 1 P.O. " M GEORGE REES WILSON " Talluld ' " Rees " Tallula, Illinois THIS carefree lad, after gracing the Illini campus for a wh ile, decided to let Uncle Sam ' s Haven for the Weary be his Alma Mater. From the first his career has been one long battle with the Steam De- partment. He always crashed through at the end of each term and showed them more about their engines and gadgets than they knew themselves. He breezed through the other Acs as easily as he did through checks from home. Tallula is always ready to drag your brick, or stand your watch, or smoke your skags, or do anything else you ask him to do. He can talk anyone out of anything, and many is the time we have paid him back for things he has borrow- ed from us. At every bull-session he sat in his story always ended the discussion; no one could beat it. In athletics he carried on as in everything else. As there was no heat in the radiators in the spring, our hero went out for track and did well enough. Tallula has been a darn good wife, for better or for worse ; here ' s luck, and hop- ing we ' re shipmates again. Track; 2 P.O.

In fact, he did not even ride a horse, but like most Naval Academy candidates arrived on our own Toonerville trolley, the W. B. A. Like them in that respect, Whoopee differed from the majority of his fellow aspirants to naval fame in that he pos- sessed a certain cool and unobtrusive self- assurance, a trait which had already car- ried him through a successful prep school career at the renowned Marion Institute of Alabama and which was destined to make him a midshipman and an officer of the higher type. Cool and self-reliant, yet quiet and un- assuming, a sincere friend to all those meriting his friendship, but a tough hombre when he is crossed — that ' s Whoopee Holloway — Up Five! ALLEN MAYHEW SHINN " At " " Shine " " Elayne " NiLES, California Take one look at this tall, bronzed fel- low and you can rightly guess that he is from California. Al spent his boy- hood near the town of Niks but this little city could not keep him long. The University of California was all right for two years but then the desire to go to sea became so strong that he joined the Mer- chant Marine. Panning gold in Alaska, beach combing in Manila, carrying on in Nagasaki, buying straw hats in Ecuador and traveling around in general were Allen ' s chief occupations during this pe- riod. Thi s life on the sea appealed to him so much that he came to the Naval Academy. The Academics have yet to give this savoir any trouble. Several points above starring in Dago, Al ' s one wish is, " Dam all this other stuff anyway; I wish we had five periods of Spanish. " Whether in the Service or out of it, Al ' s sterling character, self-assurance, and attractive personality will carry him to the top and anyone who has associated with him will be proud to say, " I was once shipmates with A.

So he easily overcame all difficul- ties placed in his way by the powers that be. After spending two years at Texas A.ficM. learning the basic laws of mili- tary science and a smattering of engi- neering, he was well equipped to over- come the obstacles of the Ac department. And in the springtime with his bat and mitt he went whistling merrily to baseball practice. During the long win- ter months you were always able to find this Don Juan out at Carvel Hall meet- ing, and conquering, the hearts of the fair Washington and Baltimore debs. In the fall he was out fighting for the honor of " ' ' 32 " in the hard-fought Sun- day afternoon gridiron classics. He is always cheerful and ready to lend a hand helping a classmate.

Since then the success of his career at the Academy has never been in doubt academically, athletically or socially. Athletically Van is a star pin-pusher. Attracted to the sport early in Plebe year he soon became a valuable member of the team and was elected to captain it his last year here. Van has no end of friends, in the Academy and out.

IT was with a firm and mighty resolve that John wended his determined way from a far inland province to the birth- place of briny careers. That was back in the days when Thirty-two was arriv- ing by small and self-conscious incre- ments at Sick Quarters for the first nerve- racking physical. The years that have elapsed since his entrance have only served to strengthen John ' s resolve, which was, apparently, to work. Thus were the academics defeated before even the con- test was begun. Of course, it is reasonable to conclude that under these circumstances John could have little if any time for the fairer sex, more or less. But since history has dis- proved the existence of any definite re- lation between academical standing and snakish propensities, it will be safer to stand upon the firm foundations of the whole truth, by telling it. Anyone who knows John well will pre- dict for him a long, spotless, and efficient career in the Navy if he chooses to remain in the service. 2 P.O. " CARL PHILIP NELSON " C. P. " " Phil " " Nels " Bismarck, North Dakota ALTHOUGH North Dakota lacks scenic and natural beauty, it redeems itself by producing good men, and remarkable weather phenomena. Without blushing, Phil gives proof of the latter, and this at great length and in most vivid detail. Proof of the former point is substanti- ated by Phil ' s abilities and accomplish- ments. In a scholastic way, Phil has con- sistently stood high, showing in his work an inventive nature and a comprehensive understanding of mathematical processes. Not satisfied with the material in the text, Phil often shows how some device might be changed to perfect the working of the whole, or how an entirely dif- ferent principle might be utilized. In an athletic way, Phil has, likewise, proved his worth by the oar he has pulled. To pull lustily one night is not hard ; to pull hard every night requires real stamina —but Phil has it. In all, Phil ' s ability makes him capable of undertaking increasingly greater re- sponsibilities. • • • • • •«|M Crew; Gym; Boxing; 1 P.O.

Abe showed us from the beginning that he was a seri- ous thinker and a scholar. A love of good books and music keeps him occupied in the few idle hours that creep into his ac- tive life. He has a strong liking for water. He likes nothing better than to sail or to swim, and he has spent many pleasant hours doing both. Plebe year saw him as a member of the " Suicide Club, " and first and second years saw him on the swimming squad. Our Abe is not what you might term a " snake " nor is he by any means a " Red Mike. " The steadying influence of the O. A. O. at home early determined his course along these lines. Usually solemn-minded, possessing a keen sense of humor when the occasion demands, and always at ease under divers conditions, Fritz is able to exact the ut- most from his Navy life. We hope that Dame Fortune will continue to smile upon him, and here ' s wishing old Abe the best of luck both afloat and ashore. • • • • Water Polo; Swimming; Class Rifle; Class Cross Country; 1 P.O. i i i i if GEORGE PEARSALL ROGERS " Will " " folly " Okeechobee, Florida BORN with the spirit of restlessness.

Therefore, he decided to join the Navy and let Uncle Sam worry about where his next meal was coming from. He went through " Boot " training at Great Lakes, and while there he conceived the idea of com- ing to the Academy and getting into the Navy in a big way. After prepping at San Diego he came in on the 29th of June to begin training for his chosen profession. Gene has never had any trouble with the Academic Departments. He always stayed several jumps ahead with very lit- tle effort. He did spend part of his first Christmas leave here, though, on account of being scored upon by the Department of Physical Training. Swede has made many lasting friends at the Academy, is liked and respected by all that know him, and is predicted a bright and happy future in the career he is about to enter. 2 P.O.

MiSSIS.SIPPI AFTER graduating from High School and spending a year at Marion Insti- tute, Hiram figured that he was all set to learn the ways of the Navy; so he jour- neyed up to Annapolis to give it a try, and it has been one continual try ever since. Try to stay sat in Math, and not go unsat in Steam. Try to stay in love with ari O. A. O. in California with -a townful of Crabs, and Eastport just across the bridge. He ' s the most one-way person in the world, but that one way is your way most of the time. And he thinks nothing of calling you everything from A to Z, but just let him hear someone else doing it, and he will be on them with all fours. It took him two years out of the Bayous of Mississippi to l earn to talk fast enough to keep awake. The Academics hit him pretty hard, but you can ' t keep a " rebel " down.

His popularity does not stop there, however, as is evidenced by the number of fan letters from un- known readers in the civilian world. He does not confine his activities to sketching, as any frequenter of the soccer field in the fall and the wrestling loft in the winter will know.

Hutch char- acteristically decided that it was the sea that should be his calling. As a Plebe Hutch made a fair bid to achieve fame as an athlete, but a natural, easy-going indolence turned his attention to less strenuous outlets for his talents. A love of warmth and comfort soon made this protege of the alligator state a con- firmed devotee of that far-famed organi- zation, the Radiator Club. In this setting Hutch has passed his time, working more over the academic troubles of others than over his own work. It can be truly said, whatever Hutch set out to do he did with the utmost of his ability. Stubborn at times, yet lik- able in that stubbornness, he bids fair to succeed in that he adheres to the quota- tion, " Be willing to change, but first be convinced, and thoroughly so. " A man of his type, good-natured, easy-going, sin- cere and thorough, ready to help when help is needed, and a firm believer in his own convictions, should make a success of whatever course he chooses to follow.

But as time rolled on these inherent characteristics develop- ed and grew into perfect naturalness. We who have claimed his friendship for four years can but stand off and admire.

Academics have harbored no illusions of " trees " and things " unsat, " for the mind of this man knows not how to worry, and dispenses with work with a wry and knowing sense of humor.

Nineteen summers rested easily upon his head when he joined the Navy with us in that memorable summer in 1928. Four years of joy and suffering have not materially added to that weight. In the course of time we were duly im- pressed with those latent literary talents which were later to take finished form in the Lucky Bag and Trident. While not especially athletically in- clined he found time to manage a victori- ous second-class team in the fall of ' 31 and spend many a spring and summer afternoon with us on the tennis court. Having firmly established himself in our hearts during these four years, it is without trepidation that we prophesy the extension of his admirers to embrace the officers of the fleet with whom he will come in contact.

Although he found much time for books and " Cosmo, " studying always came first. Somewhat enviously we pay him this trib- ute — he knew how to study.

Academics never worried this lanky son of Nebraska, for, by hard work judicious- ly put forth, he has managed to stay sev- eral jumps ahead of all departments when leave was near at hand. When someone else growled about a tough exam, he was frequently heard saying, " That? Why, that ' s fruit!

Courteous and considerate at all times, his friends have steadily increased since his initiation into the Navy, Plebe summer. His small stature did not prevent him from making his mark in Navy ' s athletic annals. As coxswain, he was an all-im- portant cog in the machinery of the light- weight crew. His endeavors along the crew line were not restricted to the Academy. Homesick for a shell, while on Youngster cruise, he visited a boat club in Naples, and the ensuing incidents will undoubtedly never be forgotten by the Neapolitans.

Not a star man but a pleasant sort of student to work with; grasps new things readily, and will explain them. A wide and varied reading has kept him abreast of the times, and has cast to oblivion a plebe-year nickname. Once a year he breaks out the sax, and gives an outlet to the music in his soul by play- ing in the Musical Club orchestras. Modest and unassuming are two intrin- sic traits that have made him friends here and will continue doing so. I prophesy an inevitable success. MELVIN THAYER YOUNG " Mel " " Umptie " " Bismarck " Clarendon, Virginia MERELY a plebe, his qualities were recognized by the appellation, Bis- marck. A big man, he had the ability to look beyond our horizons and the fortitude to obtain his objective. Bis- marck, the diplomat, autocratic and un- compromising, was soon overcome, how- ever, by the friend Umptie. Off to a bad start with an injured knee, the rest apparently gave him the impetus, not only to overtake, but to out- strip the best of us. What he has at- tained is not due to breaks but to good old-fashioned plugging. He has many likes but each is subject to his will with the exception of crew. Interested in all sports and accomplished in many, he resolved early to specialize; and crew received his illimitable energy with mutual advantage. Never pessimistic, angry, or discourag- ed, he lightens one ' s troubles when their weight becomes oppressive. An ideal roommate, he will make a good ship- mate. l M4 r Tin . i .-i Class Football; Boxing; Orchestra; Lucky Bag Staff; Reef Points Staff; Reception Committee; M.P.O.

Since then he has found a firmer footing, has rolled back the dismal clouds of ignorance, and has allowed the bright rays of the " Ac " Departments to show him the way to graduate in four years. He has learned much and has forgotten some of it, but most of all he has remembered not to tell all that he knows, and nothing that he doesn ' t know.

His social ladder lacks a top rung, and we feel that in time his name will grace the annals of cigarette papers, as does his predecessor ' s. Lord Chesterfield. Having wrestled for two years at the " U " before entering the Navy, " Ike " was left only one year to participate in Inter- collegiate competition. Had this not been the case, we are certain the team would have found an invaluable captain in this " Sandblower. " Whether up or down, his disposition is always jovial.

Since then we ' ve watched his progress from a lowly plebe to a venerable first classman. Gus is naturally fickle, no one girl ever having been able to hold his attention for more than a month. Witness, Second Class summer when he had six O. A. O. ' s in three months. He is not a snake, but when he drags you can look for a 4.0. Though not a star man, " Cowboy " stands high enough in his class to be as- sured of a commission in the " Gyrenes, " a lifelong ambition. A good nature, a keen sense of humor, and a cheerful disposition are bound to make a lot of friends for " Gus, " no matter where he is — in the Marine Corps or digging ditches. And, no matter where he is, there will be lots of his classmates, scattered all over the globe, pulling for him. Water Polo; Class Water Polo; Com- pany Basketball; 2 P. O.

This came to pass and Smiley awoke one morning to have somebody tell him that " damn Yankee " was two words. Here was pure heresy in Clare ' s estima- tion. As an athlete, his attention has been riveted on class football and water- polo. During Plebe year, it was feared that Smiley would develop gills in place of lungs, so ardent was his attempt to win a berth on the suicid e squad. Clare is temperamentally suited for the life of a Naval Officer. He is savvy, re- fuses to worry over trifles, and thrives on the unusual.

As he possesses all the qualities of a Southern gentleman, even to the well-known drawl and slurred r ' s, we have often thought of letting it go at that. After a year at Emory University, he found he would like to try the life at the Naval Academy. Here he found mutual friendship that held him until the Secretary of the Navy handed him his diploma. Size, he is but five feet six inches, has not been an overwhelming obstacle to Joe in athletics. In the fall you find him playing soccer. He led the Second Com- pany to a championship and to runnerup in two successive years. An inopportune appendicitis operation kept him from his place on the Varsity Second Class Year. (Ask him about His operation.) Winter finds him playing an excellent game of basketball and spring, with a ready la- crosse stick in his hand.

Amidst the gripe and grind of plebe and youngster years he almost decided to return to the tall corn, but, as is often heard, the place grows on one, and he proved to be no excep- tion. The Academics have never caused this lad any trouble, chiefly owing to his fidel- ity in performing any assigned task. How- ever, he has his worries, and in this re- spect the picture tells the tale. His athletic tendencies have included class football and lacrosse, and the let- ters have taken care of the literary side of his nature. Good-humored, rarin ' to join any fun, yet Joe is always willing to settle down to work.

Cliff spent one year at the University of Illinois. While there he began to master the art of playing tennis. Since then he has rapidly become proficient. Squash also had its attractions and when the powers that be threatened to make it a recognized sport he prac- ticed in earnest and won the regimental championship. Among his characteristics are his love of good books and a desire to get his full quota of sleep so that in an emergency he might not be caught nap- ping. The Academy ' s loss is the Fleet ' s gain, and June Week will see a mighty good man going out to try his hand at taking charge of a real ship.

To accomplish this, he has taken part in numerous athletic activities; lacrosse, soc- cer, boxing and basketball. Jack has shown his business ability by his work on the Lucky Bag staff and his musical talent through the Mandolin Club. Here again his banjo has won him recognition and many of us are beginning to believe he takes it along with his smooth line when making every leave.

JOHN Joseph McCormick establish- ed a record the day he entered the Naval Academy. He was the first man from Barnesboro, Pennsylvania, to enter in many moons. Since that eventful day he has fought right valiantly to be worthy of Barnesboro ' s wild enthusiasm. Despite academics, John has found time for other activities. His first at- tempt was boxing. This sport was given up, however, because he decided it was too easy — too easy to get cauliflower ears and hard blows on the chin. Since giv- ing up boxing he has pitched for the com- pany baseball team, played center on the company football team, and has been in the second " fifties " for two seasons. His greatest assets, however, are his cheery spirit and good nature. Because of them he has been a good classmate and will be an excellent officer when it is his turn to go out in the fleet. There, no doubt, he will make many friends and will continue to be an asset to the serv- ice. ERNEST DEBBES HODGE " MkJky " " Tuolumne " Tuolumne.

But he did, and became resigned to live for four years away from his beloved state and made the best of Maryland. Much to his surprise it wasn ' t such a bad place after all. An injury early in Plebe year put an end to his athletic hopes, forcing him to concentrate his physical eff orts at com- pany sports. Company rifle competition is his specialty. Micky is not what one would call savvy, but by dint of hard and con- tinuous study and an excellent start from Summerville Union High, back in Tuo- lumne, he has raised himself to a place among the ranking men of the class.

When ques- tioned about his ability he replied de- murely that he had belonged to the championship fire brigade of Osage County.

However, he found the practical side a little different from the theoretical. Tennis is his hobby, and he has de- voted a great deal of his time to the sport, along with soccer.

And judging from his picture and numerous athletic achievements, it is a safe bet that he did succeed and attain his ambition. Medium height, herculean build, a veri- table mass of muscle, make him an asset to any lacrosse or soccer team. His worth in the latter sport was made evident when he was given a berth on the Prince- ton All-American Soccer Team. As a lacrosse player he is an excellent attack man, and many an opponent ' s body has felt the stinging blow of an unintentional whack. As a plebe. Hutch caused his first-class sea-daddies a great deal of consternation by his easy-going, deliberate attitude. But this constant factor of nonchalance re- mains in his make-up, and has won him many friends. It is no wonder that Hutch ' s friends are countless, because he combines sin- cerity, good-nature, and frankness in such a manner that few, if any, are able to resist his charm. • ••••• Soccer; Lacrosse; " N " Club; 1 P.

He made many friends during the three happy-go-lucky months of plebe summer, and the fol- lowing four years have not found him wanting in that respect. His classmates who know him admire him for his will- ingness and geniality. Not a few, how- ever, have seen flashes of temper and sparks of lightning leap from his deep brown eyes, but, like lightning, it is gone in an instant, leaving only the good- natured and clowning Mason. From the very beginning of his life as a midshipman he had to struggle against adversities. An operation and an injured knee have prevented him from developing his possibilities in the athletic field. As a result he turned his attentions to his lost love, the Lucky Bag, and he capably filled the hard and thankless position of Advertising Manager. We look forward with pleasure to being shipmates with him in the fleet.

If you find him, don ' t forget the old maxim of spare the rod and spoil the Heinlein. Heinie is very sensitive about some things. Plebe year, a first classman having an errand to be performed always had to convince Oscar that he was not trying to run the poor plebe before any results were evident. On youngster cruise, Oscar was still sensitive. That ' s why he intends to spend his future guarding the streets of Heaven ' s scenes. Oscar has often brightened a dull mo- ment for all of us. This little ray of canned sunshine will be a memory of the happy years in Bancroft Hall which few of us shall ever forget. We are sure that in the future, as soon as Oscar has landed, he will have the situation well in hand.

Bill ' s lot while with us has been merely a continuation of a brilliant career which began at Baltimore Poly, and with sur- prisingly little effort he has been able to distinguish himself on the athletic field as well as in the classroom. Track is his favorite sport, and to date he has been awarded letters and medals as a proof of his merit.

Max, give ' im the works! " and a determined- looking lad gets up from the bench, goes to the mat, and applies the pressure. Not much of a talker, this Max boy, but he certainly produces, not only on the wrest- ling mat, where he has shown himself one of Navy ' s greatest wrestlers, but in his everyday intercourse with his class- mates. His attitude shows itself in his every action ... on the mat he makes no grimaces, strikes no at- titudes, but goes in and ties his man in more knots than a salty old bos ' n could fathom. Wrestling, with its body-to-body contact, ranks with boxing in its capacity for developing the fighting man, not the showy type, but the persever- ing plugger. In the Service it ' s the plug- ger, the square-shooter, that makes the best officer, and we ' re all expecting Max, after he has thrown his last adversary on the mat, to continue winning his bouts with life in the Service. EARL ALVIN LAPIDUS " Af " Lapie " Omaha, Nebraska A SCHOLAR but not a student. After getting a Phi Beta Kappa and Kappa Beta Phi average at the University of Nebraska, this lad joined our ranks late in July, Plebe summer. Staying in the awkward squad only one day, he was the company guide for the rest of the summer. The Academic Departments never made him dream of hobgoblins, but he is one of the advocates of the theory that all to be learned is not taught in books. His is an understanding nature combined with a keen judgment of hu- man character. His " Have you got any- thing to read.

Out of these experiences, he formed a philosophy based on maximum accomplishment with minimum efforts. Not that Harry is averse to work; he is merely a staunch upholder of the Law of Conservation of Energy. And his system has worked with surprising success. For example, in the academics, he has nearly always managed to star in the first two months of a term so he could devote the last two to his many other interests. All things have had their proper time in this man ' s well- planned curriculum. Whether it was garnering up one of high marks for the month in Nav, to bolster up the class standing, or merely catching up with a little lost sleep during drill period, Harry managed it with a certain finesse which seldom admitted failure. Cheerful, good-natured and keenly dis- cerning, Harry is always master of the situation. There is no reason for wish- ing him good luck. If luck doesn ' t come his way, he will succeed without it. • ••••• 2 P. O. ODALE DABNEY WATERS, JR.

There are many to whom the cognomen of " savoir " can be applied, but here is one who fulfills every possible meaning of the word. In academics, nothing seems to be too difficult for his mind to grasp; and his help to his less fortunate fellows has been a source of relief to them, and has given him a real pleasure in being a help. In general knowledge, too, he stands among the first, and a remarkably astute memory makes him a well of help- ful information. He is gifted also with a pair of speedy feet that have been a material aid to the Navy teams. A certain indescribable charm and an easy way of saying the right thing at the proper time have made him as popular among the femmes as any man could desire to be.

Such savoir-faire, vir- tute non verbis, et cetera, ad infinitum. Early in his career, Lloyd realized the futility of attempting to elude the femmes, so he started meeting them half way (in the yard, at the Main Office, or out in town), and he slays ' em all with a glance and leaves them to languish. As early as Plebe Summer, he achieved fame as an athlete, and the Natatorium was his castle. Each year found him the shining light on the Swimming Team, breaking records here and there, wind- ing up the season with more block Ns. Academically, his life was serene — a star man in the classroom as well as the drawing room, Lloyd will reach the top at anything he undertakes, for " It isn ' t luck, it ' s skill.

It wasn ' t long after signing in Uncle ' s league before he took to the water, and he has been pulling a mean " dorsal stroke " ever since. His other athletic loves were trips to the rifle and pistol galleries in the interest of the company, and a shot at track. Maybe training table chow helped along his effervescence. But the thing he did best of all was keep the women apart (practically) . He can ' t claim much of the credit, though — it was too easy. Just give the boys a look-see, and presto — an army of inter- ested, not to say eager, assistants. Oh well, ' stough to have taste in that line. Long may you wave.

Academics do not resist him long. He goes out after them with a will to learn. Freddie is a follower of the idea oft spoken but rarely practiced, " A thing worth doing at all is worth doing well. " Spike guided the football team for three years as a managerial mainstay until he left to assume the duties of first class. Somehow, the older ladies are won over when he happens around. It may be his cheerful philosophy, or perhaps he really enjoys making waffles on Sun- day afternoons.

Dur- ing that first eventful summer he dis- tinguished himself by his abilities in ath- letics and his knowledge of the Academy grounds. Unlike many who can get from under the axe without any special effort, he de- cided to star and as a result has been sporting one ever since. Among the " wooden " there are many who are indebted to Red for straightening out the snares of academic departments. It has almost become a proverb in this day and age that athletes are not over- bright. However, the Redhead has proved himself to be an exception. His first at- tempt in football was rather disastrous because of lack of weight. However, in basketball and especially in lacrosse, where weight is not so important, he was a valuable addition to the varsity. In short, Tom is the sort of fellow that you are proud to call a friend. When he leaves to join the fleet there will be many who wish him the best of luck. GEORGE SHEARMAN JAMES, JR.

In academics, he is not a star man, but he is not slow to grasp facts. Being a rebel, Buck is inclined to be lazy. " What, ten minutes? I can ' t pos- sibly read this over in that time! " In addition to his devotion to athletics and academics, Jesse still finds time to de- vote to the fair sex. He is by no means a red mike, and one may always find him where a dance is in progress. When Buck graduates there will be many who will be mighty sorry to see him leave. But we rest assured that wherever he goes he will fit in. We also know that there is one ship in the fleet that is going to benefit greatly by his presence.

Up until Second Class Year, his fa- vorite amusement was singing and whist- ling during study hour, but after that one could almost always find him among the scattered parts of the Victrola, to which he was making improvements.

We re- member the evening of the Dartmouth game in 1929 when Phil steered a party of green Youngsters safely through the pitfalls that beset their path in the great city of Philadelphia. Cohen is a conscientious worker. We can attest to that fact by displaying his awards won in small bore and in rifle since Plebe year. When the football sea- son closes, the radiator club loses a mem- ber in excellent standing and the small bore team gains a hard-working man- ager. First on small bore and then on outdoor rifle until June week, Phil labors for the glory of the squad. It is a tribute to his industry that no one has even come close to taking either manager jobs from him. Phil is a snake, but doesn ' t take his duties too seriously. So far, the O. A.

Finishing his Freshman year, he hastily scurried through his home town and made his way to the Academy in a dilapidated Ford. The activities for Lynn have held a potent lure. He has done everything from editing the Plebe Log to tangling with the Army in the Army-Navy game. He has even experienced the thrill ac- companying the successful completion of a re-exam. He had enough, however, and has not been bothered with the grim spectre of Academic Insufficiency again. " It ' s just a case of concentration, " says Lynn, with one of his slow smiles, when questioned by our reporter; and our re- porter was convinced. Lynn battles away conscientiously on the football and lacrosse fields and it is this mannerism of the athlete which caused him to help check up many wins for the Navy. His perseverance and startling ability to set his mind and keep steadily on his course in spite of rocks and shoals has won for him the admira- tion of all who know him. : Editor Plebe Log; Associate Editor Lucky Bag; Football, N, 32; La- crosse N, NA, 32; Swimming 32; Basketball 32.

Though not graced with quite enough ability to make the varsities, Joe did more than his share every year to bring the Harvard Shield to ' 32.

Bill walked from a peaceful suburb of New York, Larchmont it ' s called, into a maelstrom — the situations into which he was tossed, " Les Moments Deplaisants, " are strange enough to make a fair-sized book worth writing — but that ' s another story.

Not only is he one of Navy ' s crack riflemen, but also a bona- fide native of Deadwood. While on the subject of titles, it may not be amiss to mention that " Ducky " is the standard one for equally appropriate reasons. This military life, irksome though it may be, seems to agree with this lad from the wild and woolly West. Even a mili- tary prep school was not enough to show him the folly of his ways ; moreover, he is the first man to go on record as saying that he did not hate infantry drill. Seri- ous, steady and conscientious, he has the ideal temperament for this type of exist- ence, particularly insofar as his shipmates are concerned.

After the newness of the service was past, he soon found an outlet for his energy in the Juice Gang. Being another one of these infernal savoirs, he was well equipped for thinking up new intricate lighting effects and sign boards for the Masqueraders. The " prop room " of the Juice Gang was seldom without his cheer- ing presence, and when there were hard jobs he was always there. To risk death in getting a sign up meant nothing to him, and as a reward all he asked was a good cup of Java and a friendly bull session with the gang.

The radio club has taken some of his valuable time, academics seldom wor- ry him. When horizontal exercise grew tiresome, the wrestling loft held a certain lure. Smitty is another one of our well known Smoke Park athletes, indulging not only in that brand of baseball, but being a strong supporter of terrace basket- ball as well. Jimmy says, " Who knows, maybe the tallest man in the crowd is standing on a rail.

He found life at Purdue a bit too strenuous ; so after some two years of trying to become a civil engineer, he came to the Academy with the usual high hopes and ambitions. However, as time goes on we find that most of these have suc- cumbed to an easy death. He seldom, if ever, buys cigarettes and is constantly borrowing matches. Piebe summer he exhibited a strange and unnatural liking for that delicacy known as redeye. The subject of this abnormal passion was rapidly transferred to him, and the name has stuck throughout. Dur- ing Plebe year we heard of him as the Indiana farmer on the wrestling mat. Al- though he had never played football be- fore, a big N was proudly displayed dur- ing second class year. " Have you seen my new girl? " — that ' s a favorite of his, for during four years he has six times fallen prey to the fairer sex. But he still admits that he is holding out for that million !

From his early life on army posts and his military bearing you ' d expect him to be one of the Executive Department ' s staunchest supporters.

Although he makes extravagant claims about being a Red Mike it is seldom that he misses a hop; while, after every leave his thoughts and correspondence are al- ways considerably increased. It may be truthfully stated that these and his work- outs are the things that he takes most seriously.

Judging by his names, one might im- agine Bob wooden, but on the contrary he is usually sat for at least a good part of the time. First sections hold no ter- rors for him, nor, on the other hand, is he unduly alarmed by temporary and in- frequent trips to the other end of the ladder. Upon looking in at an informal at Car- vel Hall, one might often find Bob trip- ping the light fantastic. And then again, one might not. Bob is like that. About once a year he contracts the well-known heart attack, in the spring of course, but usually pulls through before the cruise. Although a small fellow physically. Bob is an enthusiastic follower of swim- ming and water polo, and may often be seen splashing about the pool. Quiet and discreet. Bob will always be a good estimate of the situation.

Perhaps only a hobby, for radio seems to have claimed him as one of its devotees. Where sports were concerned, Frankie was never meant to star; so he quietly took his place among the non-athletic. His ability to pass every swimming test after hard work and then develop a stroke proves that he is very diligent. New York and New Jersey bred Frank in a salty air, but offered him few op- portunities to exercise any bent towards naval life.

Ac- cordingly, one bright and summer day he appeared in Crabtown, firmly resolved to revolutionize the Navy. During sec- ond class summer Dub came into his own.

Not all of Bill ' s navigation, however, is limited to the watery surfaces of the earth, as one is liable to find him, with leave only eight months away, draped over road maps of half of the country plotting the course for his next trip home. As an artist, he has few superiors in the Academy; his drawings appear regu- larly in the " Log. " All the reward for his artistic ability, however, is not the satisfaction of seeing his efforts appreci- ated ; the complimentary tickets received for designing posters for any and all kinds of shows are still another sort of remuneration. In the years to come when the class of 1 932 looks back with fading memories at their four years spent together on the banks of the Severn, Bill will be able to clarify any questionable features; his scrapbook will be a foundation on which a history of the class could well be writ- ten. • • • • Plehe.

Gus is one of the many who decided or maybe convinced himself that he was meant for the sea; so July 6, 1928, found him safely harbored at the Naval Academy.

A varsity wrestler his Plebe year, he was held back Young- ster and Second Class years by injuries. Novelists may take pages to describe characters but here we do it with a few magic yet self-explanatory phrases: will- ing, acquiescent, well versed, always cheerful no matter how cold the room is in winter, dances, drives a car (ask him what happened to it during Second Class Christmas leave), likes a good time! . . .

' Math was his long suit; and when anyone sought the solution to a particularly stiff problem, if he called on Bill, his search ended right then and there. Tecumseh spent quite a few hours composing letters to the " Oh so fair ones, " and what luck? " Oh boy. " But he tumbled and settled permanently to one.

With most of his time spent with the Hell Cats, he missed a lot of good rifle toting, but gained fame in his own line. Not too frequent extra duty periods have somewhat served to make his ac- quaintance with Miss Springfield.

Through four years he has staunchly maintained that academics are " fruit, " and that cruises are a luxury.

Although he has striven mightily for aquatic glory and even for a time en- deavored to assert his ability as a broad jumper, he has conscientiously avoided notoriety. Numerous enduring friendships mark his passing and his infectious tranquillity has worked wonders with a roommate who finds time to swear by him as fervently as at him.

These are quite overbalanced by his good habits, chief of which is his ability to indulge in silent and peaceful sleep. It is then that Ruben is at his best.

He can tell you about the Canadian girls, the Western girls, the Eastern girls, and the European girls with equal fluency. And he knows whereof he speaks. He is one of those persons with the ability of enjoying himself un- der practically any circumstance and at the same time making it interesting and pleasant for those around him. He has a mind of his own and an individuality as attractive as it is forceful. In his con- versation — perhaps his favorite pastime — one feels the results of both experience and thought. He is bound by no con- stricted views or opinions, but rather takes a broad outlook on life, and makes no pretence to that which he has not. It is these qualities which place him far in advance toward that ideal of our earthly existence to which love and success are only means — happiness. • • • 1 5! 2 P.O. RUFUS ALBERTSON SOULE, III " Rufe " " Bud " New Bedford, Massachusetts FROM the port of tall ships and strong men came Rufe with a smile on his lips and a chanty in his heart. His child- hood on the bleak shores of New Bed- ford combined with his early sailoring fit- ted him well for the Academy. Possessed of a good mind which has kept him near the top in his studies, he developed his body by pulling an oar with the hundred and fifties; being slightly short in stature kept him out of the first boat, but many is the time he has stroked the second. Dragging from the four corners of the earth, Rufe has shown the Library to a large assortment of girls. He, however, invariably must have several days in which to recuperate after a strenuous week-end. Retaining his New England accent, he claims that the English language is spoken incorrectly everywhere south of Connecti- cut. Never quite so much at home as when giving his impression in some bull session, he usually has something of im- portance to say. In future pilotings there is no doubt that Rufe will sail his ship through all the rocks and shoals safely into port. Class Football; Class Lacrosse; 150- Pound Crew; 2 P. O.

All of his life Van has had an unbridled passion for the sea and the navy. When a mere youth, after having read the life of " J. P.

A rare combination of mathematical genius and common sense, our hero has been in the first sec- tions ever since Plebe year. Selfish? I should say not !

LOUIS WILBUR MANG " Lake " Annapolis, Maryland WHEN Loke came to this govern- ment boarding school, Crabtown welcomed back one of its most promis- ing young men, a popular wide-awake gentleman who was well known in the field of athletic endeavor. Outboard motorboating was his hobby, but Locus the Focus found time to excel in many other lines. Indeed, one of his most out- standing characteristics is his versatility. Along with his other activities, Loke played basketball, boxed, swam and ran. As an example of his versatility, he blew a smoke ring the first time that he tried. Loke might have become a savoir but he always believed that the anchor sec- tion was the best because he did not have so far to go to formation and that is cer- tainly logical enough. A rare combination of natural ability and energetic determination enabled Loke to come through with the results when- ever he started anything. If he doesn ' t become a naval aviator, we expect to hear of him as a successful designer and manufacturer of outboard motorboats. • •••••• Boxing: Track: Su ' imming; 2 P. O.

We cannot do that but we can say — he is a man. When this tow-headed Southerner first heaved into sight in the summer of ' 28, with his guitar under his arm and a gleam of warm friendship in his eye, we put our okay on him without further ado. To him Youngster Cruise was just an in- teresting experience, and we all learned that we were in for the fun if we went ashore with him, in Barcelona, London, Norfolk, or anywhere. Aviation sum- mer was much to his liking and we found that if the Navy sees fit to give him a pair of wings, the Bureau of Aeronautics is headed for success. We ' ve enjoyed these last four years with Whitey — working, playing, laugh- ing, groaning, and irking with him — four long years, and we are all hoping to see lots more of him.

He tossed his chaps aside, donned the Navy blue and gold, and with the song, " The Eyes of Texas Are Upon You " on his lips, set out to tackle the biggest with the best. Plebe year passed along smoothly enough and June Week found him " Tater like " dragging the fairest of the fair. Then three months at sea and the boy was more than ready to steer for home. At the beginning of second class summer Tate took over a company and the next two years treated him as well. He won the highly coveted and responsible posi- tion of Lucky Bag Business Manager and proved to be, aside from a born leader, a gentleman, and a son of the sea, a very capable business man. As a boy he is the best playmate possi- ble; as a man he ' s among the world ' s finest, ever full of diplomacy and the ability to put across what he thinks right. • 1 • • • • • Rifle Team; Recepl on Committee; Class Bowling; Advertising Staff Lucky Bag; 2 Stripes.

WILLIAM ADAMS DOBBS " Willie " " Bill " AcKERMAN, Mississippi ONE day his father called him in from his favorite haunts where he spent much time in hunting, fishing, and " courtin ' " to ask him his ideas on go- ing to college. A year in Mississippi Col- lege gave him the thought that perhaps engineering might be quite the thing — hence a year at A. M. Not satisfied with the easy-going life of a Southern college student " Willie " finally suc- cumbed to the insistent, far-reaching call of the sea. Bill as a Plebe was a problem to the upper classmen — as an upper classman has been a problem to the Plebes ever since. His first year he aspired to the glory of a potential center on the football team only a short time later to become the hope of the wrestling team. Feeling that these achievements were easily attainable, he heeded the call of the little sailing boats, the squash and tennis courts, not to speak of the Radiator Club with its many distractions, among them the harmony so characteristic of the boy we know so well.

Though the " devil dog ' s " greatest enemies are supposed to be sailors, he found a new adversary when he met Dago. Whether he took an aversion to Spanish in his experience in Panama or whether he just found it hard we do not know. But if it was the former, he sure- ly overcame that in Spain. If it was the latter, we can say he overcame it too, for he put Dago in the same class with the rest of his subjects. Second class year found him opening a book occasionally, but he seemed to find little necessity for even doing that. After all a Marine ' s claim to recognition is not his linguistic accomplishments, but his ability to fight. He can do that. Class Football: Plebe Crew; Water Polo; Juke Gang. 2 P.O.

If still water runs deep, then Bill must have depths at which we may only guess, as he is never demonstrative. Probably only a few of his more intimate friends have learned that here is a wise and tolerant student of humanity who is able to soften his criticisms with choice wit. Academics have never held any terrors for " Ike. " Had not the lure of a good book or magazine been so often appeal- ing, he might easily have starred. By dint of sheer natural ability he has been able to stand well up in his class. At various times Bill has tried his hand at football, boxing, and track, but swimming is his own true love. When the days began to lengthen he could be found in the pool every night, religiously seeking perfection. Whether Ike stays in the Service or seeks his fortune in the world, we predict fortune and happiness for him. t - ? P • ik • Masqueraders ; Class Football; Class Water Polo; 2 P.O.

In retrospect, these past four years haven ' t been the easiest in Dick ' s life ; but, as they have been filled with fight, determination, and the will to win, the re- sult has been inevitable. Dick ' s time has been filled with a variety of things that make for a well-rounded existence. Academics, athletics, and the company of the fairer sex all have had their place. His exuberance and vitality almost over- whelm us at times. He is ready for any- thing at any time, and his ready wit and repartee keep us all on our toes every minute from reveille to taps and some- times after.

CHARLES MAURICE SUGARMAN " Sugar Babe " " Rose " Portland, Oregon STRAIGHTWAY from Portland he came with a fresh beaming smile bestow- ing upon all the aroma of good nature and friendliness. Without hesitation " Babe " and his smile entered the Academy, for they recognized their mis- sion in life. The smile paved the way for a successful career while " Babe " follow- ing close on its heels was building a staunch foundation. Unpretentious, " Babe " is one of the naturally " savvy. " To the aid of all Math, Steam, and Juice parties he came and checked the answers in the books. Dime novels and Western stories became his obsessions and only when they or his daily " specials " were encroached upon did a frown displace his smile. " Babe " is indispensable as an arbitra- tor in arguments concerning the Navy — he knows his Navy from sea to sea. It is his pride and glory and he derives as much pleasure from it as he does from forming generalities. If one can put up with this and it is not hard, one finds him otherwise quiet and unobtrusive, two lovable and highly desirable qualities which place him as the perfect room- mate. • •••••• 2 P.O.

Plebe year found him busy trying to convince the Math Department that he wanted to stay here; but still he found time for two sports, with dragging a third. However, the following years offered no great difficulties, enabling him to devote more time to athletics. That he met with success in these lines may be seen by the N ' s he has earned. Shovie has such a lazy and carefree manner that those who do not know him sometimes fail to recognize his real abil- ity. But a man who can devote the great- er part of his study hours to reading and still fool the Academic Departments, who can stay on the excused squad most of the time, and still make N ' s, who can drag a couple of Crabs at the same time and make them like it must have rare ability.

Plebe year came and went, and Bill had tried his hand at track, lacrosse, and football. Spare time was always his, for it was a disdainful study hour that he gave to any class. Dago stumped him for a while, but all of us remember the uncanny luck that he had with the tongue in Barcelona. With rare enthusiasm and unbounded good humor, he can scarcely fail our prediction for a colorful c areer. Our trib- ute to him will always be that instinctive memory of an ideal roommate, a good fourth at bridge, and the life of any com- pany. 2 P.O. ALBERT ALOYSIUS WELLINGS " Duke " " Gus " " AV Boston, Massachusetts ANYONE who has heard of beans and tea and ships has heard of Boston. From this old seafaring town our Duke came to cast his lot with Father Nep- tune. He is the last, but hardly the least of four brothers to enter the naval profession. Duke followed the call of the sea by shipping out at an early age and he came to us with the salt still in his hair. His robust constitution and natural en- ergy impelled him. along athletic lines to the B squad and to his favorite sport, baseball. One of Duke ' s well-known ac- complishments is his ability to flip a cig- arette butt through half an inch of open window without even looking. Academically he has always given a good account of himself as a result of a dogged aptitude for learning, which has resulted in excellent standings. As for feminine conquests, he has a way with the women that is not to be denied, but if you ask him, he ' ll say that his true loves are his sleep and his pipe. Whatever Duke does, or wherever he goes, we know he will be a leader among men. • •••••• 2 P.O. { One Hundred Seventy-joui ] Wrestling, N, NA; M.P.O. in: f: ik ik GEORGE ERVIN HUGHES " Algy " " Hughsey " " George " Shawnee, Oklahoma Two famous men came from Okla- homa.

A confirmed sandblower, he quickly expanded his chest, took a deep breath, and by our second class year entered the sport spotlight as Navy ' s stellar wrestler in his weight.

In academics, George has given an ex- cellent account of himself by virtue of a practical mind, and has successfully avoid- ed the tricky pitfalls in that direction.

" Seattle, Washington IT IS a far cry from Seattle to Chesa- peake Bay, but a naval career induced Otto to forsake the Golden West for a balmier clime, as he cast his lot with the other thirty score of us in the summer of ' 28. His natural restlessness and love for the sea led him to ship out at a tender age. His early travels took him to far-off Japan, China and Alaska. Thus was the die of his seagoing life cast, on the turbulent Pacific. His life at the Academy has been a full one, indeed, as every form of athletics has taken its due of his time. His chief interest lay in the javelin and the Plebe record that he set in same was a noble start. A persistency in everything under- taken invoked the pleasure of the " God of 2.5 " and thus afforded him time for invaluable extra-curricular activities. Otto ' s sunny smile is one of the latter and has made our four years much brighter. No matter how we may be separated, we will always remember Otto — let ' s hope we ' re shipmates some day.

The problem always became tractable under his microscropic eye and acute memory.

When he became a young man the call of the sea lured him away from home. In the seafaring atmosphere he gained, for all time, the qualities of perseverance, determination and faithfulness. These have been in- strumental in making him a success in his chosen profession. Seafarers are hardy men and George is no exception. He is a clean, hard fighter, and we have been proud to have him as a fellow member of a fighting organiza- tion.

He might have done better but he was often too eager to prove the text wrong and back it up with conclusive argument. As a Red Mike, he knew no peer.

By leadership and fine character they change the baser metals of discord and cross pur- poses to the pure gold of harmony and cooperation. Such a man is " Doug, " and New York State, we are sure, has been poorer as we have been richer by his four years here. He stands high in his class, and, like many other great men, obstacles only spur him on to greater efforts and almost al- ways greater success. " Doug " has balanced his academic life by means of the soccer field and a shell on the Severn and his suc- cess in these fields rivals that which he has achieved in his studies.

Owing to the aggressiveness of the steam department he found many obstacles in his path; however, with a lot of hard work, and an uncanny ability to pull sat, he has won many an uphill battle with the academics. Jim is a combination of cheerfulness and good humor, mixed with an abun- dance of common sense. Another of his great failings is his desire to argue, which he will do at any time, under any circumstances.

Most of his time was devoted to stopping dashing backs on the gridiron or stroking the crew up the Severn. Bo ' s early ambition was to stroke the Navy crew, and he was not long in at- taining his goal. Plebe year he pulled a sweep in one of the heaviest Plebe varsities the Academy had ever known. Youngster year he stroked the Varsity to a most successful season. Critics at the Poughkeepsie Regatta described him as the most powerful stroke on the Hud- son. In the fall the gridiron demanded his efforts and Plebe year he held down a berth at tackle. Youngster and second- class years he performed on the " B " squad — punishing the highly touted varsity.

Because of this there has been little time for him to devote to academic pur- suits. Notwithstanding, he is one of the outstanding scholars in the class. John has not taken athletics very seri- ously. In fact, he thought so little of his swimming that both Plebe and youngster years found him a member of the sub- squad. But when second class year rolled around he devoted a little of his abundant energy to aquatics and stayed clear of Henry ' s deficiencies.

Four years of work and worry; determination and persever- ance have brought him safely over the hurdles of Math, Steam, and Juice, to the ultimate goal of all of us. His nicknames have come, one from the temporary difficulties he sometimes encounters in the academic departments, and the other not from the traditional penuriousness of his race, but from other qualities not used in joke books.

Coming to the Academy direct from Hume-Fogg High School, he expected to find the Academic Departments good ones for a fight. The first month, however, convinced him that he had the upper hand. He went out for crew his Plebe year, and because of his long arms and strong back had no difficulty landing a seat in the first shell. Unfortunately for Navy crew he had to turn in at the hospital just before the season opened, and that ended his efforts for an " N " with crossed oars.

DAVID HAROLD McDONALD " Mac " " Scotchman " McKenzie, Tennessee ONE day in June the Paymaster on the Reina handed a discharge to a bugler second class, shook his hand, and wished him luck. An hour later the Com- mandant of Midshipmen administered an oath to this same ex-bugler — Mac was a Midshipman at last. Three years is a long time to try, especially when salvaging lost subs on the Vestal or weathering Florida hurricanes on the Bobolink. Mac brought a quality with him from Tennessee, stubbornness in the raw. Not exactly that either; better said, a firmness of purpose, determination, a will to set a goal and reach it. The Academic De- partments had not reckoned with his Scotch nature when they put him unsat Plebe Christmas. Mac called a meeting of the clan, abs orbed all the extra instruc- tion they had to offer, and hasn ' t been unsat since. Fencing has claimed Mac ' s athletic ability although some of our would-be pugilists have rubbed sore chins after getting in the way of his glove. He is especially fond of entertaining the young and unsophisticated with tales of the old Nyvee. " Now, when we raised the S-51. " • •••••• Fertcing; Company Soccer: 2 P. O.

We don ' t know much of his Plebe year activities, except that he emerged a wise and non-reg capped youngster. This extreme secrecy can be laid to his leading role in the Masqueraders. No one sus- pected that charming Miss who captivated our hearts in " The Devil in the Cheese " was Mr. Jacobs. One day youngster year the moral pressure of the room coaxed him over to the crew shed and Johnny began his career of coxswain.

He saw it — or as much as can be seen while chasing prisoners across the reservation at San Diego. About then he conceived the idea of becoming a midship- man and combine an intensive course in travel through Europe with a few studies. ' Twas a long hard struggle to get in — es- pecially with a top kick who sent Bill down to the dock in full equipment with every detachment bound for China — but like in all good stories perseverance won out. Bill has not demonstrated his athletic prowess excepting in the wrestling loft — where he can be found most every night during the season giving someone a hand- ful or three. A trick knee has kept him from winning laurels in the realm of sport. The same dogged determination which has characterized his work here will surely carry him far along his career.

When this Finney boy hit the Naval Academy he was out to knock ' em dead. Earl soon found out, like a great many of the rest of us, that stars are few and far between. But the discovery fazed him not at all. He tackled the academics with a will and was quite suc- cessful. A temporary setback by the Math department during youngster year failed to upset his equanimity; and by dint of hard study he managed to pull out of the hole. He ' s been riding on the top ever since. Earl is a steady-going, consistent sort of chap. He applies himself diligently to whatever task he has in hand and doesn ' t rest till he ' s finished it — and finished it in the way he thinks it should be done. He possesses the ability of at- tending to fine details as efficiently as to general ideas without losing his sense of the proportionate importance of both. He shows a keen interest in all things naval as well as a readiness to absorb such subjects. These characteristics together with his dogged will to win will make Earl a suc- cess and a credit to the Navy. • •••••• Masqueraders, Stage Diieclor: Stage Gang: Masked N: 1 P.O. { Two Hundred Four } • • • • • .If ALBERT WILLIAM DICKINSON " Al " " Dick " At Large ON the fourteenth of June, 1928, a young Navy Junior named Dickin- son entered the Naval Academy as a Plebe. Dick had a number of ideas about the Navy, and ever since the beginning of Plebe summer has been trying to de- termine if his ideas were correct. Owing to this, he is rather cynical at times, but ail those who really know him will never hold this against him. Dick is a fairly bright boy; so he gets by in all of his academics without much effort. The fact is, if he used a little effort he probably would be a star man. There is only one department that is able to hold him back some, and that is the Athletic Depart- ment. As Dick never was much of an athlete he found himself on the weak squad at the beginning of each year. How- ever, when Christmas leave period came in sight he would become a temporary athlete, pass all of his tests, and then be ready for a big leave. Although he does not appear to be a social lion, he has a good many friends in the Academy and all those who know him respect him a great deal. • • • • -A • G.P.O. J. HARRY HAYES " . Harry " " Harry " Haddonfield, New Jersey AFTER spending two years at Villanova and one at Swavely, Harry decided that he had missed his calling in life and began all over again in the Navy. Plebe year found him on both the foot- ball and crew training tables. Plebe year academics seemed to bother him not at all; in fact, he almost ignored them, but despite this he stood well. Youngster year was the usual round of new rates, et cetera, but the chief dif- ficulty that Harry experienced was that of having two dates at the same time. Second class year found Hayes on the football training table again, but this time he was seriously handicapped by in- juries. Outside of a sojourn on the well- known Reina Mercedes, this year was as successful as the others. During his stay at the Naval Academy Harry has contributed liberally to sports. The regularity of Hayes ' mail was al- ways a marvel to behold; a man must have something to rate that. Harry will, without doubt, be an asset to any service, and we feel that success will follow him into later life. Football; Basketball; Plebe Crew; Baseball; Orchestra; Lysistrata Cup Crew; 2 P. O.

This RoUins Mayer happened to be a mem- ber of the Naval Reserve, wherein he was developing his knowledge of his beloved subject, radio. Back in Rollins ' mind lay the idea that he wanted to get ahead; and to do this, he knew that he must ex- pand his education. And so it came to pass that, after tack- ling the terrific task of absorbing a high school course in thirteen weeks, this lanky, earnest, rapid-fire radio operator entered the gates of the Academy. Within these walls the life of Rollins has been one of strenuous endeavor and of achievement. His battles with aca- demics have been continuous. First it was Dago. He made a 1.2 the first month, and people laughed when he vowed he would NOT bilge out. But he didn ' t, and his dogged determination has stood him in good stead in other in- stances since. HARMON TISCHER UTTER " Harmotr ' Neville, Ohio THE ideas of Harmon became the most important intellectual forces when he cashed in his civilian clothes for a Midshipman ' s uniform on the twenty-second of June, back in 1928. From this date, they steered him so wisely and efficiently that today we have that much demanded type of Naval Officer, who came with a suddenness that sur- prised us all. Many and various were the causes that hampered our boy ' s academics, but some- how Harmon never went unsat. His de- termination to win always predominated. He always got his way, regardless, but sometimes without dividends. As a plebe and as a youngster he had no sympathy for the ladies — but times have changed. Harmon always had many friends, which probably accounts for his attractiveness. We hope he carries his ideals and tradi- tions into the fleet with him; we know that, no matter wherever he may be, he will always be the same, well-liked friend and shipmate that he was to us.

A sound background and the ability to grasp the principles of any sub- ject have kept him consistently off the trees and well up in the class without greatly extended effort on his part; and, together with his conservative nature, they have caused his opinions to carry much weight wit h his classmates.

Thus we have found him during his four years at the Academy. Having completed two years at the Uni- versity of Colorado before deciding upon a life in the Navy, the usual academic stumbling blocks of Plebe year and youngster year held no horrors for him. However, his modesty and reserve mis- led us for a while, and it was not until we began to look eagerly at class stand- ings that we recognized a genius in our midst. Few can boast of a record better than his. As an athlete, the wrestling loft was his home. Here persistent work brought him some measure of success. Coupled with intellectuality, in him is found an abundant supply of good common sense, an inborn cleverness and facility for es- timating quickly any situation and a well- developed sense of humor. Dignified, but far from aloof; amiable, but rarely intimate; always helpful, but never patronizing; mtellectual, with no evidence of the pedantic — this is Charles.

When he isn ' t struggling with aca- demics, you can always find him penning innumerable letters to the One whose pic- ture temporarily adorns the locker door — or, more often still, reclining blissfully in the arms of Morpheus.

Academics, at cer- tain times, have been of paramount in- terest to him; at others, merely a succes- sion of boring hours. He is not a Red Mike, but neither is he a tea fighting snake. He drags more or less frequently, pursuing his search for his ideal. Athletics in the form of boxing, foot- ball and track have claimed his efforts. Boxing, however, is his favorite, and each winter finds him in the gym pushing and stopping leather. It is difficult to say which he enjoys most, a good fight, chow, sleep, drag, or a bull session. At times, chagrined and griped at tough breaks, but never truly down-hearted, he grins and takes them for the best. This same grin and tenacity of spirit will carry him through the battles of the future as it has through those of the past.

Although not athletically inclined, as a youngster, he won his numerals in Navy ' s far-famed " Suicide Club, " with the result of much publicity both here and at home. While not a regular at- tendant at the hops, he is famed locally for the quality of bricks that he is fre- quently seen with, although on some oc- casions one must admit that he was not responsible.

The terrors and mysteries were real enough, as he soon found. Not of the sea, however, but of that which leads to power upon it — knowledge. Diz, however, had no thirst for power, and the academic departments several times took toll. Indeed, until second class year he knew not the giddy exhilaration of a Christmas leave. Did it embitter him or, on the other hand, lead him to delve a little deeper into his books for knowledge? No, indeed! Ever he would go his blithe and cheery way. Spare time and study hours were ever synonymous to him. Needless to say, Hec and his easy-going ways should succeed admirably in the Gyrenes — his unalterable choice.

This accounts for his success in the Masqueraders. While squash and tennis are his ath- letics, executive ability has bound Horace so close to track and cross country that managing takes a great deal of his time and energy. Sat but not savvy would be his aca- demic classification if hastily made. Upon closer observation, however, Horace is found to be one of the men who places the true value on breadth of mind and attainment of knowledge gained through activities rather than through high academic standing.

Never to worry about the present and to let the future take care of itself is al- most religion with " As. " This trait, to- gether with a ready wit and a disposition as mild as a Mediterranean evening, am- ply justifies the sobriquet " Happy, " con- ferred on him early in Plebe year by his doting sea daddy. Except for a skirmish with the Skinny Department, youngster year, Happy has always been several jumps ahead, although he has experienced that supreme aca- demic thrill of pulling sat. In the realm of athletics, " As " has confined his atten- tion to wrestling and the radiator club. To all who know him, Happy is a gen- tleman, but above all a true friend. Here ' s luck to you. Hap.

NICHOLAS JOHN NICHOLAS " Nick " Portland, Maine OUT of the frigid glare of the North- ern Lights comes this mighty little man, bringing with him a " Life of Napoleon, " one mandolin, and a decided Maine accent. Mingling with the rebels made him lose most of the accent, but Nick is a foxy lad and he always stopped before he lost the mandolin. One of the few men who recognized the merit of that Epitome, Bowditch, which, aided by his Life of Napoleon, made academics a veritable sea of roses and bed of ease, it was only by the expenditure of great ef- fort and much boning of the " Cosmo " that Nick escaped starring. Although he resembled Napoleon in stature, he could put Michelangelo on the spot any time when it comes to drawing. If this Navy had all the ships in com- mission that Nick has drawn for the Log, something would have to be done about finding suflicient water to float them in. At various intervals he would sally forth and do a little dragging. Not that he was a Red Mike — far from it — but, like the lightning, he never stayed long in the same place. :A: • • • • • • Wrestling; Musical Clubs; Log Staff ; 2 P.O.

JOHN STUART HORNER " Jack " " Sampson " " Homer " Newberry, Michigan FROM the wilds of Northern Michigan he came, to cast his lot with other sea-minded men. His lot has been cast, and now, but not until now, he gathers his laurels. And truly he merits them, as he has been unusually successful with academics and other ogres. Most first sections know only too well his confident smile, as he prepares to do battle with some confounding problem. His ability is almost uncanny, and to the casual ob- server it would appear that he did much practicing on the side, but we can vouch that this is not the case. Nor are " Sampson ' s " activities limited solely to academics. He has done well as a " pin pusher, " reads a large amount of literature, and is strongly attracted to music. He is not the typical Red Mike that one would suspect him to be, but often appears at hops and other social functions. In plain words, he is an all- around good sport.

A penchant for technical subjects and summers spent afloat gave him the cor- rect foundation on which to begin. Com- ing to the Academy was merely the logi- cal step for him, and he took it without undue effort. His interests are all linked up in some way with things nautical. Crew is his sport, and he has been an im- portant factor in Academy crews for four years. The Poughkeepsie Regatta was one of his ambitions. Quiet and reserved in manner, he is the possessor of an unfailing sense of humor which, combined with a true sense of pro- portion, brought him through Plebe year, youngster cruise, and all academics, with equanimity. Loyalty, friendliness and an ever- readiness to help us in our difficulties are attributes which will ever make him a good companion. Four years of asso- ciation with him through the various phases of Academy life have shown us that which makes an excellent shipmate and a staunch comrade.

He won his numerals Plebe year in water polo and youngster year in boxing, show- ing his loyalty by sewing both awards on the same sweater.

At others — oh, well, who wants to study anyway.

For four years he has been a worry, and it is time someone else took charge. He has had quite a few sharp bouts with the academic departments, and has managed to fool them more than once when they thought they had him dead to rights. However, he is really rather savvy in most things, and has helped the writer to fathom many a problem and Steam sketch. Get him in a jovial mood sometime and he will tell you how he got four 2.5 ' s on four exams, once upon a time. Incidentally, he expects to be asked to become a member of the Dago Department any day now. By glancing at his first and middle names you can easily see that he has been handicapped by endeavoring to follow in the footsteps of his illustrious forbears.

In fact, he is practically from the stronghold itself, and has ever been loud in the praises of Philadelphia and the Athletics. One of his chief con- solations has been that we have jour- neyed there several times during the foot- ball seasons. For unknown but potent reasons, he left the big city to become a member of ' 32, and joined the number of those who navigate the rocks and shoals of Plebe year. Safely past the Scylla of Math, Bud went gunning with a sextant for any Charybdis that might lie in wait- ing for him, and passed unscathed. Bud is noted for the quality of his fruit cake, but he didn ' t need fruit cake to make him jxipular, for his usual cheerful nature and obliging disposition have made him many friends. He is rarely blue, ex- cept after those wonderful leaves in Philly, and even from those he recovers quickly. We feel sure that wherever he goes Bud will continue to make friends and that he will be a shipmate well worth having. Track; Boxing Manager, ball; 3 Stripes.

Bob is one of those lucky mortals who make the best of everything, and find contentment in a job well done. He whiled away most of his time in reading, and the library found him a frequent borrower. Those that knew Bob from Plebe year noticed a great change that was made in him. He was a misogynist pure and simple until a bit of femininity broke through his reserve during Second Class Sep leave. Athletically, Bob spent most of his time on the cross-country and track teams, helping his class teams win several times in both sports. Modesty is one of Bob ' s virtues; he never boasts of his conquests or accom- plishments.

If his loss meant as much to them, at that time, as it would now mean to us, there certainly must have been many, many mournful notes float- ing around in the old woods. Cheerfulness is his ever-present ally, but it is only a beginning.

McREA " Mac " MoNTPELiER, Ohio A FEW years ago Mac decided to quit tilling the soil, preferring to ride the furrows of the sea. Coming from Ohio it must have been the picture of a ship on the wall that led him to make such a drastic change. Mac first attracted the attention of the class by his ability as an oarsman in the Plebe Summer crew. In the fall, by vir- tue of his sterling performances on the Plebe varsity football team, he proved that football was another of his assets. Next Spring, he further enhanced his athletic reputation by winning a seat in the first Plebe boat. For the remaining three years he has devoted both Spring and Fall to football, proving himself a valuable addition to the team. His only enemy throughout the four years was the Academic Department; however, lesson assignments rarely inter- fered with whatever else there was to be done. In spite of that, he always kept his head above water, and was ever will- ing to lend a hand to a submerging class- mate. Crew; Football; 3 Stripes. MAGRUDER HILL TUTTLE " Tut " Lenoir, North Carolina BORN a Tarheel, Tut developed a pas- sion for the sea, and came to the Naval Academy. As he was from the South, he had developed a way with the fair sex which helped him to spend many a pleasant evening, while his natural prowess as an athlete kept him busy during the afternoon. In his high school days, and later at Duke University, King Tut was a star football player. Ever since he came to the Navy, he has been a big shot on the team, being captain during his first class year. Playing center, he caused our opponents lots of worry on the defensive, while on the offensive he was ripping great holes in their line. He was also an outstanding success in boxing, both on the Plebe team and on the Varsity. It is seldom that one finds a chap so reserved, and yet so greatly interested in the many amusing things of the world. His penchant was the singing of all sorts of funny songs, and the reading of po- etry, spending many of his leisure hours in that occupation. Tut is a man who combines a quiet nature with a real and deep-rooted character. • •••••• Football, " N " ; Captain Football; Boxing; Trad: 2 P.

" Max " has his own philosophy of life, a sort of " laissez faire, " and judging from the number of his friends we should say that it works well. His interests are few: a smoke, a book, and a place to indulge both; a conversation on any topic, or an after- noon on the rifle range give an every- day picture of our roommate. And he has a way with the women ; ask anyone who frequented Dorchester on the Youngster Cruise. About the only times he betrays evidences of en- thusiasm are when spilling a yarn about the years spent in France, or when the conversation turns to rifles and hunting. Academically, he has been uncomfort- able but once. Usually he shows a versa- tility in treating all subjects alike and keeping a few jumps ahead in each. We know that this is one chap that will get along, and we express the hope of many in wishing him good luck in future life. • •••••• Varsity Rifle; Expert Rifleman; 2 P.O.

" Red spends a lot of his spare time thinking of leave when he can strut his stuff and give his version of the Navy Line. He has little trouble with Academics, and doesn ' t need to grind. The Steam Department got in a few good blows in the early part of his career here, but he has had the situation well in hand ever since. This leaves him time to devote to the various activities which go to make this school more than a mere institution of learning. Much water has passed over the dam since we first gazed at that flowing red hair, and heard that distinctive New York drawl, yet time has served only to confirm that first good impression.

Each year when the Academic Departments train their guns on the class of 1932, we ' re all certain that Davy Jones ' Locker will be our fate, but not so with Bill. He merely shrugs his shoulders and says, " Shucks, now at Poly we did it this way, " and that ' s why he ' s been wearing a star these last three years. " When Spring comes and most of us turn poetic. Bill breaks out the old Lacrosse gear, lets out a blood-curdling ward whoop, and is off to crack some- body ' s skull. As a gentleman of true worth and versatile accomplishments, it is to Bill that we instinctively turn in time of trouble, whether it be a juice prob, a ring design, or " une affaire de coeur.

Monty comes from the Queen City of the Mahoning and one glance at the portrait will explain why he usu- ally returns from leave disorganized. Although one affair turned out badly, Monty sought solace in a pipe, turned philosopher, and is now (latest report) enthralled by another. Just how valuable a friend Monty is was revealed Second Class Summer when a hospital gold-brick- ing experiment back-fired. He has always been the finest fellow in the world with whom to do anything in the world. No success can be too great for what he de- serves, and we hope that wherever he at- tains it will be where we can continue the friendship so pleasantly begun. • •••••• Basketball; Track; Reception Com- mittee; Reef Points; 2 P.O.

Jack ' s natural energy impelled him to become rather a workout hound, with the result that he is a valued member of the Gym and lightweight crew squads. Academically, too, Jack has always given a good account of himself, combining natural aptitude with a dogged conscien- tiousness. Still another facet of his nature is his love of travel. For months preceding each cruise he was deeply engrossed in travel literature. The knowledge gained in this manner was freely distributed and proved very helpful to all his friends. In all. Jack ' s accomplishments during his years at the Academy have exceeded even the most sanguine predictions made by the editor of ye home town bumwad.

Coming from a small South Carolina town he was at first a little pessimistic about his chances of success.

Along with his academic ability and common sense, Pete has a sense of humor and carefree manner that have won many friends. Always cheerful and gay, he has never been known to have the blues. " Why worry " and " Run and let run " expresses his philosophy, while his con- tinuous good humor and wit make it im- possible for anyone to remain angry with him more than a few minutes at a time.

He says it is an accumulation of the sun ' s rays, picked up on a farm at home, and we believe him. His speech belies his place of origin, however ; in fact, we cannot attach it to any one section of this great country. This fact fits his wanderings, made at various and sundry leave periods. In him we find a well-rounded man. He is able and willing to do the many tasks placed before him. In his scho- lastic work, although never fortunate enough to achieve a place among the stars, he has acquired commendable suc- cess. Athletically, we can pronounce a similar verdict. His efforts and accom- plishments point toward a career full of happiness and fine achievements. His ambition is to become an aviator; we surmise that this is the result of Sec- ond Class Summer.

Anyone wanting the dope on Naval affairs usually gets hold of him. After 4:30 every day Don turns his attentions to the more strenuous side of a Midshipman ' s life. In the Fall he can be found booting a soccer ball around among the Varsity soccer squad. Then, in the Winter, the swimming pool claims his attention, while Spring usually catches him doing things with small boats or lacrosse sticks. This, together with Don ' s attitude that nothing is worth do- ing unless done well, doubtless has some- thing to do with the fact that he stands well up near the top of the class. All the above is really secondary, though.

This idea, backed by others of more patriotic origin, won the day for the Navy and here he is. " A vigorous youth, with lots of dash, daring, and dexterity. " This phrase sums up his outward characteristics. It tells why his roommate suffers with envy every time the mail comes and why he dons his monkey jacket as a matter of routine on Saturday nights. The dexterity part explains the existence of a number of rather strangely constructed but useful ar- ticles in his room. These are products of an inborn desire to invent which often crops out in spare moments.

Plebe Summer, with its infantry and seamanship, was at first bewildering. With a thirst for knowledge, and a keen desire to learn, these obstacles were soon surmounted. Outside of Steam, the Academic De- partments never made a threat. When necessary, he studied hard ; otherwise he took things as they came, trying to make them as enjoyable as possible. Because of his friendship and good humor, his place will be hard to fill. He never refused a debate, and always showed the utmost respect for the opin- ion of others.

Tact, generosity, unfailing good humor, and a natural tendency to remain quiet while the other fellow talks are his outstanding characteristics. He is one of those rare fellows whom you meet and like, and the longer you know him the greater your liking for him. During these years at the Naval Academy " Bob " has found many lines of endeavor outside the realm of athletics by which to entertain himself and at the same time further activities and help those of us who are less gifted to enjoy life. His remarkable talent and ability to repro- duce on the drawing board beautiful girls known or imagined, and his ability as a cartoonist make him a valuable mem- ber of the Log Staff. It is only necessary to know Bob to account for his many friends. Striking a happy medium with the Academic De- partments and unknown to worry, he is a good sport, a true friend, and, in short, a Southern Gentleman. • • • • • • Class Football; Log Staff; 2 P. O.

Added to his ambition to wear wings was a love of the sea, and combining these two, it was but natural that he should decide to become a naval aviator. So he ventured away from the Ohio River to the labyrinths of Annapolis and the Naval Academy. A talent for music, combined with a goodly amount of clown in his make-up, has made him a member of the Orchestra and Glee Club. Not that he confined his attention entirely to things inside the Academy; far from it. Just ask some of the Annapolis fair sex about those moonlit evenings second class summer, and watch them blush. In any undertaking to get up a smoker or show of any sort, Dick was one of the moving spirits, and while there are a lot of things of which we are not sure, we know one definitely. That is, if Dick does as much to make himself agreeable aboard ship as he has done around here, his ship will be fortunate to have him. • •••••• Glee Club; Orchestra; Gym; Plehe Crew; Musical Club; 2 P.O.; Mas- queraders.

Being a Navy Junior, the call of the sea was strong within him, and he came to the Naval Academy as a matter of course. If you don ' t think he knows his lan- guages, have him relate to you how he used his French to talk the caretaker of the Spanish summer royal palace into showing him and a group of his class- mates through the interesting royal home, while in Barcelona on his youngster cruise. His importance can further be realized when you know that the Officer of the Deck almost broke out the side- boys, band and even the captain for him, for this promising midshipman had been returned from a visit to his father ' s flag- ship in an admiral ' s barge. Admiral ' s aspirations are not conflicting — a career in the Navy for him; truly an admiral-to-be. Is it necessary to wish him a happy voyage?

At any rate he always stays well above the 3.0 mark with plenty of time left over to read all the good magazines and books, though we ' ll admit he doesn ' t use many of his spare moments writing to the fair sex. Yet he always drags — Bill can keep more friends on one book of stamps than any other man I know. Bill started his love for the sea " way back when " by taking a deep interest in crew. When he found out he was too light for the Varsity and too heavy for the Lightweights, he set his eye on crew managership and attained that difficult position after months of hard work. Here, Bill, are a few reminders for the evenings in the future around the fire- place — just remember plebe summer in the third — ' 32, the Utah, and American women — 4340 — Aviation Summer.

Comfortably non-reg, more than savvy, and never known to be despondent or gloomy, he has been the best of companions these varied years. The first thing he did when he joined the Navy was to break his ankle, but, in spite of that, he has played basketball every year and played it rather well at that. But for all his athletics and savvi- ness, Squilgee ' s weakness is women. Not woman, friend, but women. He has that happy faculty of being quite in love with whomever he happens to be dragging at the time, and the beauty of ,it is they seem to like it. Maybe it ' s because he can always make you laugh with him. Get him to tell you about Rome, or New York, or Copenhagen or some place, be- cause if anything ever happens in a town it always happens when he ' s in the middle of it. When Squilgee refers to " back home " he means that thriving community of Ottumwa, and though most of us have never been there, it must be a pretty fine town to produce the man we ' ve all known and liked so well these last four years. • •••••• Basketball, N ; Reception Commit- tee; Usher; Choir; 2 Stripes. { Two Hundred Forty-eight ] " Joe " JOSEPH THOMPSON San FORD, " Smoky " Maine • • ALL roads lead to Sanford!

Always a savoir, always reading. Dale has seldom been worried by the Ac. De- partments, Dago being his one weak sub- ject. " Say, Dale, did you get that last prob? Yeh, well how did you start it " ? He is an earnest follower of all ath- letics, and we find him very interested whenever any sport is mentioned.

" So many girls, upon hearing his name, say, " Oh, yes, I know Jack, etc., " that one wonders how one man can know so many of them. His explanation is that there is safety in numbers.

For- gotten technical nomenclature such as clew-garnet, fore-to ' bo ' line, and seeming intricacies like the lead of the mizzen to ' gallant braces are familiar to him be- cause of early childhood misspent in bon- ing now useless books.

In the line of sports we find him wres- tling in the fall and winter. In the spring he becomes one of the men that hold ' em and squeeze ' em, doing well with rifle, but pistol is his specialty.

Snaking was also one of his many accomplishments and he gave them all a break. That far-famed " rogues ' gallery " on his locker door gave ample proof of his success with the Navy line. In the realm of athletics, a " trick knee " proved somewhat of a handicap. You can ' t keep a good man down, though, as Goldie demonstrated by four years of ex- cellent tennis (sometimes on one leg), and the coveted TNT was his.

Because it seemed to be his pet hobby to coast through academics without exert- ing himself, he was prevented from par- ticipating in athletics by the ever-evasive two-five. Navy never had a more ardent backer when it came to lung power in the stands, and he might easily have been an equally ardent participant if the sub- squad and math department had not been so cozy with their passing stamps. In his four years as a member of ' 32 he has fitted into the cog of affairs like a true son of old Neptune. If he remains in the embrace of the Navy ' s alluring life, his success is assured, but should it be his intention to penetrate the vastness of the world as a civilian, the U. S. S.

" Struggling ever onward and upward, despite his own private Hoover boom and the adversities of a midshipman ' s life, he finds his little watchword as quoted above quite a prod to the lagging spirits of a Sunday evening, when the young lady of your choice has returned to Washington and the curtain of despondency has descended upon you. " Sunday night and sore as can be, " has ever been a Navy proverb, but the other breaks through this gloom caster and the Department of Ordnance, Nav, Steam, et al., find their little tasks faith- fully discharged. • • • • • Track; Plebe Football; Class Foot- ball; 2 P.

Tom Hurley, or Pat, if you must confuse him with the Secretary of War, is one of the few peo- ple liked by the D. O. ' s, the upper classes and the plebes. Without studying much, he absorbed enough to keep from worry- ing about the eternal 2.5. As for athletics, turn to the sport section. Tommy comes from a home only a few blocks away from the scene of the Army-Navy Salvation-bathrobe benefit in ' 30. His prep education was acquired in Stuyvesant High School along with let- ters for various sports. After High School, Tommy let a lit- tle time pass, then fell for the " call of the sea. " The Congressman for his dis- trict lived next door; so it didn ' t take long for his wish to be gratified. Then came Plebe summer and what followed. Youngster year, which he divided be- tween the Fourth Batt and the hospital, second class year with lots of printer ' s ink, and finally this picture up above and four years finished. • • • Football, N; Baseball, N ; 2 P.

In the summer of ' 29 West Vir- ginia sent another one East to carry on the tradition. Well over six feet and of wiry build, he soon acquired the marksman ' s gold circles — the true mountaineer. A disposition that made many friends and a character founded on an instinct for right made Lewis the ideal classmate. His inspiration was usually music. Be it jazz or classics he would go a long way to hear a good orchestra. More or less periodically other inspirations entered his life. A more than usual ability in basketball and tennis left him off the Executive Council of the Radiator Club; on the other hand a natural sawiness and a clear conscience permitted him to erase his deepest worries with nine or ten hours ' of Dr. Morpheus ' treatment. A gentlemanly reserve neutralized by a democratic enthusiasm brought him esteem. A warm heart brought him strong personal attachments, and together these qualities will bring him deserved pros- perity and success.

From this outburst of fiendish spending burst Mad Anthony — Southern Gentle- man, dilettante, iconoclast, care-nothing- for-what-you-think. Successive trials at the Citadel, stronghold of Southern Militarism, and the University of Charles- ton, cradle of American culture, convinced him that he was totally unfit for the Naval Service. A casual observer, perhaps a roommate of four years ' good standing, could not fail to notice that he is inclined to be a bit too destructive with anything breakable and is not to be trusted with anything that one values particularly — especially the light of one ' s life. Gus has always had a trenchant weakness for the feelings of the young ladies, and at times it takes the form of some good advice to a perfectly strange young lady on how she might im- prove her looks or her mode of attack.

Bob has spent the better part of the last few years trying to convince the rest of his class- mates of the advantages of getting duty in the submarines after graduation. Oh, yes, and don ' t forget the Merchant Marine and the Army. Bob also gives us all the dope on these two services. Along the line of athletics Bob has di- vided his spare moments between getting scratched up in class water polo and light- weight crew. A bit of Cat Fever during the spring of his second class year caused him a little hard work in the latter sport. Since Bob was born at, and brought up in, the Watervliet Arsenal we can hardly blame him for his rather warlike character and utter dislike of all peace treaties and other diplomatic conferences. It is prob- ably this characteristic combined with his early acquiring of sea-legs by playing with toy boats in the Hudson that gave the Navy such a great break. • •••••• Oew; Water Polo; 1 P. O.

Sometimes we think that he may have learned a few of his tricks from the noble red man, as a more fun- loving disposition can ' t be found any- where within these walls. A war whoop that would make the aforementioned natives sit up and take notice, and a bag of tricks were his heritage when he came, and the years have only added to his in- ventive genius along these lines. As far as academics are concerned. Hank has never had to worry particularly. Perhaps he did find " Youngster year " math a little hard, but then that ' s a habit with every Youngster class. A natural bent for the more scientific subjects, such as " Juice, " certainly more than makes up for any weakness in any other subject. Hank has always been a keen devotee of the more warlike pursuits. Numerals in small-bore, numerous activities in pis- tol, and a fondness for machine guns certainly have qualified him for brother Capone ' s right-hand man.

" Spud " " Murph " Philadelphia, Pennsylvania ONE bright day in June, ' 28, a future member of Uncle Sam ' s " Spoiled and Pampered Pets " was seen struggling through Number Two Gate. His attrac- tion for the sea began while navigating about the islands of Casco Bay in his youth, and was furthered by the sound of the big gun off Lynnhaven Roads. From the beginning of Plebe year the sound of the typewriter could be heard in his room, " clicking out " dope for the Log. The added work on Reef Points and editing the ' 32 edition also kept him busy. Aside from this, much of his time was spent in keeping his violin in tune for the orchestra presentations. One glance into his locker would con- vince you that Murphy is not a woman- hater. He always has had time enough to take care of the " Sugar Reports " and listen to the recordings of Tschaikowsky, Wagner, and Beethoven. His ability to see the happy side of the worst annoyances, his genial disposi- tion, and his amiability all help to make him the good shipmate and true friend that he is. May our paths cross often.

It wasn ' t entirely to his liking, and he had plenty to say about it, like a true salt; but he remained — perhaps to growl — but in spite of everything he remained. The Academics gave him a royal battle, but Mac never could work as hard as when he had to. He never let down, and always managed to pull himself out of a hole with his own bootstraps. When he wasn ' t pulling sat, you could always find him in the wrestling loft. If he was pulling sat, he could always be found in his room with some of the Boys; " Now what good is all this theo- retical stuff anyway? " He always manages to be on hand at the hops, solo or in harness, and never misses a party. A ready wit and an en- gaging manner makes him good company on any occasion, be it an all night stand after a football game, or a game of bridge.

As an athlete Mai ' s small stature was no great handicap, and his sense of bal- ance and nerve made him a strong man on the gym team. Mai seldom drags, but he is in no sense a red mike, having a quiet, smooth way with the femmes. His good nature and ready smile added to his gentle sar- casm have endeared him to all who know him.

The initial step was much easier than the following ones, which necessarily led through that laby- rinth of mysteries called the Math De- partment. The maze had to be retraced once early in the game, but from then on the footing was more even. In sub- jects not requiring a mathematical fine- ness, he could, and did, grapple with the best the first section could offer. Juggling with pdp. dO required too much of Joe ' s time to allow him to row, with the consequent blasting of a prom- ising career as an oarsman. Joe is one of the best informed men of the class, a quality which was both an advantage and a disadvantage to many Plebes. Joe ' s wit and humor, combined with his flair for expression, always made him the center of any gathering.

" This he did most successfully, for he gained ail- American ranking as early as Youngster year. In addition, he varied his athletics by playing soccer during the fall. He is perhaps most famous for his under-water prowess, but he is plentifully endowed with other and less spectacular qualities. He is an equable and amiable disposition with an unruffled demeanor that cannot hide his innate consideration, helpfulness, sympathy, and loyalty.

Music has charms to soothe him, but he seldom raves over it. His keenly inquisitive mind, coupled with his inherited con- scientiousness, keeps him booming long after we have knocked off for the day.

His chief characteristic is energy. Every waking moment he is doing something — reading, writing, swimming, dragging, making a racket, playing the Vic, or off to NA. Ten practice. He has his serener moments, too, which indicate that there is something behind all his restless- ness — a desire to get on in this world and concern for his friends. He gets by in his studies and that is all that worries him. The rest of his time is spent in whole-hearted indulgence in his other activities. In a word, Bill is a great little guy.

Unlike the nose-led and spoon-fed who travel in the ruts left by others, he created his own sphere of thought and proceeded as his ideas dictated. Like the better half of Academy men, he occasionally found his name on the short end of the monthly student versus professor game, but he always ended the season with enough drive to look back and smile at the nearest academic evils. GENTLE, MEEK, and MILD? Well, hardly, for he did his share of work on the wrestling squad, jogged through thick and thin with the cross country runners, and spent more than one Sunday playing lacrosse for ' 32.

Never having to worry about academics himself, he is usually in a position to be a great help to one less fortunate. Having had more experience than the rest of us in matters of the heart, Dick can usually find a solution to the most intricate problem. He likes athletic activities but has so many non-athletic interests that he has never been able to put in enough time on any one to excel in it. He is a good diver, enjoys swim- ming and likes nothing better than an occasional game of tennis or a friendly bout in the boxing ring. Dick is famous for his unfailing good humor.

On these two platitudes we base our story, pre- senting it to you with the famous classroom war cry, The Ticture Works The Trob. WINTER in Panama and Fleet Concentration. Fingers of light cutting the gloom from the searchlights of the gray sided men-of-war — that swing idly at anchor in the Roadstead. Purring motor launches, distinguishable in the murk only by a red or green sidelight and the phosphorus of their wakes, weaving in and out of the monsters who mother them. Liberty Parties and Shore Patrols and white linen suits. Old Panama and the Locks and visions of Morgan. And, finally, the Hotel International and the Miramar. The door swings open in the Miramar and in stroll four red-cheeked ensigns — the ink still wet on their commissions, the eyes still wide at the concentrated power of the Fleet, their amazement and wonder at their sudden rise to officer status not leavened even a little by eight months in J. O. Country. The place is filled with people whose faces they recognize as members of the higher order of stripes and as they stand in the doorway absorbing the smoke and the atmosphere and the gayety, the realization strikes them that maybe they are of the lesser fry and should be shy and retiring in such a gathering of superiors. " Back corners for us, " says the taller — and apparently more practical one. " A nice quiet table tucked off in the gloom is just the thing for us at this point. " " You ' re right, old hoss. " " Suits me. " Complete approbation all around and they seat themselves at a wicker table that looks across the Bay of Panama. " " Garcon. Mozo. Vakmeister. Waiter. Somebody bring us four beers. " Tall and cool and dark it came, and they settled themselves to the panorama that un- folded itself before them. The lights that outlined the locks, the ships coming in from the Pacific to anchor and wait for dawn, the incessant flashing of the light on Flamingoe Island, — it all lay before them as an unreal fairyland. " This is the sort of life to give the troops. As a matter of fact, I ' m all for this Fleet business. It ' s a whole helluva lot different from the cruises that we made. " " You ' re right, it is. All the time at the Academy, I wondered if it was any- thing like the life that we led there. There ' s something about it that sort of gets you. It ' s a different attitude, all the way around. And, men, I like it. " " You men out of this year ' s class? " Some stranger in a white linen suit and panama hat sitting at the next table with an aperitif. And, unmistakably, the Academy ring. " Yes, sir. Fresh as paint, I guess. " " How do you like the Fleet by this time? " With every word that he spoke, he hitched his chair around a little more, until, finally, he had joined the group. A couple of more cool ones around and they were fast friends. " We were just saying how different it was from the Academy life and how much we liked it. " The tall one was doing the talking, but all the others were nodding assent . ' ' What class were you? ' ' " I ' m out of Thirty-two.

" In these mass pictures that follow, everyone loses his identity and becomes mere background for the fortu- nate souls who got in the front ranks. But in and among the background, there are mixed the people that we have known and liked and with whom we have been shipmates. And there are men who are only delayed action classmates and whom we will be willing to wel- come to the fold when they, too, have completed their course and become eligible for fitness reports. They have all been material aids to making pleasant the three years that have elapsed since we became elevated to the somewhat doubtful honor of being a Youngster. We give you THE CLASSES Class of 1933 TT 7ITH " three years behind and one to go, " it doesn ' t seem sofar back to that dim, dark, ▼ distant summer of 1929 when, seven hundred strong, we congregated here in Annapolis, from all over the country to solidify into the Class of Nineteen Thirty-three. Plebe Summer passed before we realized it and it was only when we had really gotten into Academic Year that we really understood how Plebe Summer was a fool ' s Paradise and probably the most carefree time of our entire careers. We became Youngsters and earned that greatest of all privileges — to drag. And we saw another class graduate while we became Second Class. Second Class Summer with its week-ends and its " cits " and its freedom was more appreciated than the Summer as a Plebe i ii v ' l ' T f Three Hundred TtveiHy-jnur J ■■tiijr and enjoyed more fully. And then we settled down to learning the process of command from the class we were to succeed as S. O. P. Three dollars more a month, another stripe, our introduction to Ordnance and Nav, the " Book of the Month Club " and currents that would not alternate. But as we get down toward the end, we realize more fully that it is the best year of them all, the transition from irresponsibility to responsibility notwith- standing. We ' ve tagged along behind the Class of 1932 for three years and from them learned most of our lessons. But above all, we hope that the lesson we have learned the best from them is the sane and thoughtful handling of the Academy while " lords of all that we survey. " 5?Si.

Not twice the plebe year sweat which earned that narrow gold band seems comparable with the mental whirlwind from which we are yet recovering. On the verge of mental collapse, Thirty-four views with wonder the mystic crystal which holds the secret of Second Class summer and the two years to come. Looking back on its baptism by fire-hose and its teething in the hard ring of discipline, the Youngster Class sees a plebe year as long as youngster year seemed short. To our minds the two blend together over the gap of June Week and the summer cruise while memories - [ Thiee Himdred Twenty-six ] ■«».., of that first September leave lend enchantment to the future. Two Army games, too, stand out as vivid towers in our memories of the past. So Thirty-four approaches that point in Academy life where the past and future lie well balanced on the scales of time. Only time will reveal the multitude of pleasantries and disappointments that await in the uniform with " two diags " as only time has revealed the quantity of fun and pain dressed in Plebe and youngster garb. Thirty-four hopes to fit its new raiment with the carrying on of the old spirit of the class, the regiment, and the service. tf u. Plebes AS our one diag changes from a dream to a reality, we look back upon plebe year and J- realize that from the heterogeneous assembly that wandered into the Administration Building twelve months ago we have been made into a class. The transition had its tribulations. For a long plebe summer we strained our backs to the cutter ' s oars, groveled in the dust of the rifle range, and learned that " Squads right " is something more than a quotation from a war novel. For eight Academic months we bore the brunt of the best, or perhaps worst, efforts of the various departments to send us back into the darkness whence we came. [ Three Hundred Twenty-eight There have been pleasures as well as trials. We found our Navy Spirit at the athletic games. Our first Christmas Leave brought us a never-to-be-forgotten thrill — that of re -flct turning to once familiar sights and friendships, and seeing them from the standpoint of our new environment. Our experiences have unified us. We have come to know the man who squares his corners, braces up in the mess-hall, and answers the eternal " Plebe ho! " for a friend. Our class spirit is born of these trials, but it will not end when they are over. Never again will we be merely a group of plebes, nor even of youngsters. Now and forever, we are THIRTY- FIVE.

" Thus Keene introduced himself in the first of his dual characters in a manner that gave the audience at once the impression that here was a role handled with remarkable inherent talent, the more so since this is the first year that Keene has been a member of the Masquer- aders. The Act continues with the arrival of the Gendarmes (Adams and Erwin) under the command of the Sergeant of Police (Merrill) who have come for the purpose of taking into custody Our Hero for alleged assault on His Royal Highness, Prince Alexis of Moldavia. Just at the moment when Keene is to be dragged away to a living death at the salt mines there is a disturbance in the audience; a spot focuses on a sartorially correct Vellenborg (complete with high silk hat!) who appears in the limelight as a disinterested spectator but who later directs the destinies of the entire cast. Foote gave a remarkable performance in a difficult part, that of a cold-blooded, astute Chancellor whose love for Country and Intrigue blinded him to human affections. New complications occur in the Second Act when, in the Palace of Moldavia, Prince Alexis refuses to seek the hand of the beautiful, alluring Katerina of Wallachia, and Peter, who as his double, is -..iffi=, V ' .=.S S2 .y.;.,. — chosen to take Alexis ' place that the beautiful Princess might be gained and the Treaty (of course there had to be a Treaty!) might be signed. We follow the trials and tribulations of Peter in pleading the suit of the man whose place he had taken, Prince Alexis, and we are charmed by the urbanity and remarkable acting of Queen Elinor of Moldavia; the part was taken byCotten, whose histrionic abilities were no less matched by his ability to wear the latest creations of Poiret and Boulanger with " chic " . In Queen Elizabeth (acted by Sapp), and her ' ' lesser half, ' ' King Nicholas (Hoover, to his friends !), we see that even in Wallachia " Uneasy lies the head that wears a Crown! " " The domestic storms, the play of humorous lightning about the King ' s head produced laughter at the psychological moments and credit is due to both Sapp and Hoover for the able manner in which they developed their char- acterizations. But we must not forget that in every romance there must be a heroine; Erskine, in the role of Katerina, that young lady whose ultra-modern views had proved the stumbling-block to her previous suitors, and whose hand is the quest of Peter, proved to be one of those rare, adaptable persons which make casting of feminine leads not as great a difficulty as one might be led to imagine. : ii«t ' Nor is any play complete without those all-important characters which furnish successful con- tinuity; in Dissette and Fell as Manservants, Kilmartin as the King ' s Secretary, Packard and Anderson as Actors in company with Roenigk as Yana, we have the remainder of the Cast which succeeded in putting on what has generally been admitted as one of the most colorful, spectacular, and amusing plays yet to grace the boards of Mahan Hall. In the final analysis, then, any historical sketch resolves itself very easily into the biography of the few earnest persons whose love of the Dramatic finds expression each fall in the auditorium of Mahan Hall and whose volunteer spirit results in a play worthy of those that have gone before. The Masqueraders of 1932 leave the Regiment with still greater triumphs to be attained; yet, we who leave carry away with us the feeling that in " The Command Performance " we found more interest and gave more varied diversion than has heretofore been attained. For those who remain, however, it is but the beginning, for " Achievement is but another milestone along the Highway of Progress The End of the Journey lies ever beyond! " k ■ " Station NAMC Broadcasts " - ' H. SOSNOSKI Direcror PASSING through the corridors in the late afternoon one always hears those six o ' clock shower tenors or a Radiator Club quartette; and after chow there is always an audience for those twos or threes who get together on their mandolins. The boys all like their music, hence the Combined Musical Clubs ' Show. Keeping up with the times, the show this year depicted the high lights and some of the comedy that takes place in a modern broadcasting studio. Tommy South, as chief announcer, proved to be quite a wag; we wouldn ' t be surprised to see him grabbed off to sub for Walter Winchell. " Good evening, everybody. Station NAMC first brings you The Collegians. " With this announce- ment the Glee Club, directed by " Alpha " Bowser, appeared before the mike to put across some mighty tuneful melodies. During a pause for station announcements some of these lilting larynx artists got loose in pajamas; they, if not their garments were a study in close harmony. " Back on the air again, folks, with Enoch Knock, maestro supreme, and his symphony orchestra. " For the first time in years the orchestra was up on the stage where it belonged. Such melodv as that rosewood baton of Enoch ' s could draw out of his musicians! " Come along with me now, over to the Harlem side of Little Old New York. " This time Tommy f Three Hundred Forty-six } ' es. ' u The Combined Musical Club Presentation Lt. Comdr. a. E. Glann took US on a journey to hear Jack Lewis ' " pick and string " boys. Hearing some of those old negro spirituals one would think they all had had experience with the " chain gang " down in Mississippi. Were they ever good ! " Now, ladies and gentlemen of the radio audience, we are turning the microphone over to Ray Pitts and his famous Bancroft Hotel Smoke Hall orchestra, possibly more commonly known as the NA-10. " Indeed that band would do credit to any genuine broadcasting studio. How the audience followed them through the entire program, swaying, humming, inclining forward slightly to get every note of the soft choruses. They could have answered encores all night. Between the feature acts Lambert and his Royal Trumpeters persuaded his listeners to book a cruise on the Wyoming. Correct time came through the courtesy of Pitts ' Boilermakers; while that " stay at home with an El Ropo " feeling was perfectly put across by Dave Shumway on his synco- pated xylophones. A special added attraction of the evening was the television transmission of McCrosicy ' s contortive dancing, or may be the picture was just distorted, any way it all but rolled the audience out of their seats with laughter. We admit the show was a big success and take this opportunity to thank Lieutenant-Commanders Glann, Ziroli, and Shelley, and a ' ll the rest of you who helped us put our show across. s -. -»- » The Glee Club A. L. Bowser Dirtctor npHE last notes of " Taps " reverberate, echo, and die out in the spacious rotunda; one by one the X. lights of Bancroft Hall go out. It is sleeping time for everyone but those who live on the First Battalion Court; they are kept awake by those blood enemies of Morpheus, the Glee Club. Up from the Music Room in the deep, dark recesses of the basement float the harmonic strains from the throats of a score and a half of young vocalists practicing for the annual Spring Show. First may be heard a rip-roaring he-man ballad, next, a sweet negro lullaby, then maybe a popular song, one of those you like to hum in the shell pink ear of your O. A. O. As 10:30 rolls around the stirring strains of the Club ' s signature song " Navy Blue and Gold " float out the window, up over the roof into the dark night; then in a few seconds dead silence reigns. Certainly, they ' re the Glee Club you heard in April; so you remember them too. Well, join us then in congratulating them on their excellent performance, and don ' t forget their technical skill and smoothness were the result of patient coaching by Professor Crosley. Mighty fine going, fellows; here ' s wishing those of you who carry on many happy practices on the cruise, and some lively hours next year. %■:;-,. The Academy Symphony D. C. Knock Conductor THE so-called Naval Academy " symphony " orchestra is one organization in the Regiment inj ' which each member plays his own personal part. A successful concert is accomplished by all players doing their individual best; and there are so many necessary units in such a club that credit must be given to all hands for making possible an entertaining performance. In the 1932 Musical Show, the orchestra strength was cut slightly because of the nature of the presentation — a broadcast parody with small musical units filling the " mike. " As a result, the directors of the four clubs, especially of the " symphony, " attempted to produce the same effects with reduced ensembles that in previous years were accomplished with almost twice the talent. The trial brought great success; the orchestra not only demonstrated the classical masterpieces but also introduced itself as a new unit — the concert orchestra — by delving into modern music with a few melodies like the celebrated " Rhapsody in Blue " and one of the latest orchestrations, " Lady of Spain. " So this versatile ensemble scored its fourth success — leaving nothing to be desired in the way of entertaining the Service music lovers. The Mandolin Club J. S. Lewis Director THE MANEXDLIN CLUB offers to the regiment an outlet for practically all stringed instrument talent. In spite of the name, during the last few years the club has become more and more domi- nated by banjos, due, no doubt to the more universal appeal and to the greater number of that in- strument. In each Musical Club ' s Show of the past the Mandolin Club has had a vital part and has con- tributed no little to the success of the show. They have appeared as everything from wandering gypsies to darkies in a Harlem night club. And the music has varied from the near classical to the latest of the hot dance numbers. The members of this organization have always enjoyed putting on a show. There is a certain satisfaction and fascination in having done something well, which repays in full the long hours of practice. And there are other benefits, such as missing a few formations and the inevitable good fellowship of the dressing room. As the men of the Regiment realize, the Mandolin Club has been growing and improving. For with all the radios and victrolas the day will never come when people will not get a thrill out of playing, or listening to someone play, the mandolin or banjo.

Pitts Leader EVEN the extra duty squad knocks off work once in a while, but this organization, composed of a few lucky ones from each class, spends two or three hours a week, all year long, having a good time practicing new tunes, murdering old ones, and hoping they ' ll stay sat. Each Friday evening we hear, ' " Now the N. A. Ten has permission to leave the mess hall at will, " and the result is the band ' s latest idea of a good, warm dance program. All the first class are present in their bald-headed row seats, yelling for " Tiger Rag, " " St. Louis Blues, " and similar possibilities, while the others stand in the smoke-filled room trying to get close enough to actually hear what ' s going on. Once each year the Ten is allowed to play for a First Class Hop, as much to the enjoyment of the dancers as to that of the would-be Lombardos, Weems, or Arnheims. And during the summer cruises the N. A. Ten spends many happy hours on deck, in a casemate, or in the wardroom. The great climax for each N. A. Ten, a yearly event, is the Spring Musical Club Show. The Ten is always awarded the position of honor in the show, their part of the program coming last. With a smart setting, and the biggest musical numbers, they draw the final curtain of an evening that will always be remembered. y li. R. L. Evans — Class Ilhtory V. J. Catlett — Cruises A. G.

Similarly our lost memories are collected in this, our Lucky Bag. For four years we have lived only for the present and the future ; we have been too busy to give much thought to the very pleasant past. However in a few years our days shall not be only for studies and sleep, rather there shall be many peaceful evenings when memories will come streaming back. On such occasions we have only to leaf through the pages of this book in order to relive those happy hours that were only fleeting moments as we raced through four years of Naval Academy life. f mum " iSfSSSE ' ' " . .

How well we have succeeded is for you to decide. In the summer of ' 30 all this was but a dream as we sat around and talked things over with " Corky " Ward. On the Cruise most of it was tangible only in the smoke from our pipes, but once back from September leave waste baskets were filled with noble struggles to ex- press our pet ideas; and packs of film were exposed in an effort to bring to life the events of the past. Before we realized it, January was at hand, then things happened in a hurry; page layouts were completed, dummies made out, copy written, engravings cut. Finally the fin- ished pages were in the hands of the printer. Two anxious months, then the Book, our " brain child " for your approval! C. M. Keves — Alhklks- . M. Archk f! " R. T.

When the Executive Department said " Cut expenses " there was, of course, no argument; but when the Business Staff repeated the story to the Editorial Gang the dollar signs really flew. Ward insisted on having eight full color pages, Simpson said " OK, but then you will have to use panels in place of individual cuts. " So the discussion went on, and after spending many long, hot nights poring over previous expense accounts, and bidding farewell to thoughts of expensive layouts, a budget was produced. That budget was a masterpiece of finance; not a department suffered, yet it left each manager and editor with the task of remaining exactly within his limits, so that all, including you, dear reader, might be satisfied. M. J. Hamilton — Advertising Manager LUCKY BAG " Mace " Hamilton really set the pace with a smash- ing advertising campaign that never stopped a min- ute until it was way over the top. If his assistants felt even a nibble for a half page they never rested until they had sold a four color full page layout. While the advertising forces were at work outside, the circulation squadron under Joe Jaap swooped down on the Regiment to convince all hands that mother, sweetheart, and congressman should have a copy of the Lucky Bag. They had to have a po- tent line to break down that " depression resist- ance. " So the money came in ; once in, Simpson ' s role be- came that of the cold-hearted banker reluctantly paying out the cash, but " Corky " never had a need to call him " Shylock. " The reason for this harmony among the whole staff can be traced to those regular eighth day meetings with Com- mander Greenman when Ward, Simpson, and Hamilton gathered together to untangle prob- lems and make plans suitable to all.

My girl hasn ' t received her copy of the Log for three weeks — I want something done about it. " Yes, gentle reader (if any,) you have guessed it: the above is an intimate revelation about what goes on in the Log office on any Wednesday afternoon. For the first hour everything is bedlam. Gradually, however, the dissenters and fault finders wander out, leaving a half dozen frenzied souls to struggle with the dummy until 5:30. The editorial staff always quit at that time because the plaintive notes of sick call unconsciously struck a responsive chord within them. You, as the great mass of unprotected subscribers, didn ' t have to read the product of our drudgery unless you cared to; but we not only had to read it, we had to write it — so cheer up!

Mitchell Advertising Manager rising bequeathed to us by our predecessors, plus the untiring efforts of our business and circulation staffs, we managed to pull through the year without showing any red marks on the ledger. The literary gang, usually at odds with the business department, was able to smile contentedly throughout the year because of the happy discovery of former Lucky Bag color plates which proved most suitable for covers. The general satisfaction shown by the Regiment upon the appearance of these covers lent great encouragement to the editors. There is undoubtedly much more material such as this stored away, awaiting the probing eye of some enterprising midshipman Sherlock Holmes to bring it to light. When the year first began the editors were hopeful that they could transform the Log into a more literarv type of magazine than it had been in the past. But this effort did not meet with much success — mainly because of the rebirth of the Trident, our toneful contemporary. Other additions were made, however, which proved quite popular, notably: The Hall of Fame, by means of which we endeavored to do justice to our outstanding athletic heroes; the reestablishment of the West Point Letter, the good natured parodies of " Familiar Figures About the Campus, " and the occasional pub- lishing of anecdotes apropos the naval service. As usual the femmes responded nobly to our requests for material. Somehow the girls have always stuck by us, even though we may have tramped on their literarv brain children and artistic efforts with a ruthless ferocitv. Petrie Glenn McM aster Walsh Mitchell Franklin Langen [ Three Hundred Fifty-nine } BURROWES Flenniken Mahonby Art Editors Bingham Cut Exchange Weschler Many were the letters received from the great outside asking us ' why such and such a contribution had never appeared in print, or what was the point of this or that cover? To the first of these queries we can only reply that everything really good has been saved and, though this generation, or even the next, may not see it, your grandchildren probably will. Grea t and ponderous (as well as dusty) are the archives of the Log ofSce, and what goes into them let no man put asunder. To the one about some of our covers we can only reply — you try to get a good cover for a magazine each week for a year and see how far you get. True, we always had a good supply of color work on hand (why there was one potential cover up in my room for four months which made mates of the deck gasp, D. O. ' s swoon, and Plebes forget to sound off) — but such things cost money, and we had to keep ourselves financially " sat " or Foley and Franklin would have gone without their graduation outfits. We listened to your complaints and endeavored to improve, realizing that an issue was not suc- cessful unless the first class took it down to chow on Friday evenings. But whether you liked the Log or not, we really got a lot of enjoyment out of publishing it, and it is our sincere wish that the years to come will see it steadily improving and occupying a significant niche in the hearts of Navy men.

" W. J. DiMITRIJEVIC Editor The Trident Society ABOUT ten years ago a group of LOG, LUCKY BAG, and REEF POINTS staff members decided - that there should be some outlet within the Regiment for the literary efforts of our budding authors, something different from any of the publications then existent. These people formed The Trident Society. A magazine named the TRIDENT was born and flourished well — for a short while. Somehow the society began fostering other ideas to the detriment of the periodical. These new things were good. Everyone knows THE BOOK OF NAVY SONGS; most of you have heard of ANCHORS A WEIGH: and the upper classes remember the NAVY DESK CALENDAR. This year the society felt that its true mission lay in the continuance of the magazine. Every ef- fort was bent to that end. This year saw reborn the old TRIDENT, yet somehow a new TRIDENT. Following the modern trend, color found its place in the editorial pages. On the day of its issue the new book took its place among the best literary quarterlies in the East. Distinctly, ' 32 ' s TRIDENT was a success. However, the society must not rest. It must press on to greater success, to higher levels of attain- ment. It must produce each year a finer record. The history of our Service must be written by Navy men. Let the Trident Society lay the keels for those future books. C. L. Murphy Editor M. T. MUNGER Advertising Manager Lieut. W. A. Swanston Officer Representative C. H, Kretz Business Manager The Reef Points ORIGINALLY published as the official organ of the Naval Academy Christian Association, the Reef Points has since become an individual activity in the Regiment. The success attending the venture has thoroughly justified this step, and the publication now occupies a leading role in the lifeof JoeGish. The Reef Points is the official compendium of information concerning the Naval Academy and the Service. In it the newly fledged Plebe finds the story of the Naval Academy itself; a description of the sports and the activities in which he is expected to participate; and as many of the unwritten laws of the Navy as he can absorb and understand through reading alone. From it he must glean his first ideas of Naval Tradition. Finally, all hands use the book for keeping a record of the pain- fully acquired horde of academic " velvet. " The I93I-I932 edition was an outstanding success, both editorially and financially. The staff worked hard to broaden the range of usefulness of the book, particularly for the Plebes. They suc- ceeded in arousing the interest of the Academy and the authorities in its importance, and with this foundation. Reef Points should enjoy a successful and prosperous future.

Perhaps not, but you ' ll admit having a yearning to investigate those mysterious regions ever since your first stage show, won ' t you? Then meet the Stage Gang. We are just a bunch in whom that yearning grew so strong that we couldn ' t resist the admirable opportunity the Masqueraders offer to satisfy our yen. Through the long winter months we gather daily to do our bit, so that when show time rolls around we can present a smooth-working crew in the professional manner. Such are the labors. The joys are not to be measured in the concrete — even though we do get our masked " N ' s; " rather, they are such things as the pleasures derived from the good fellowship developed in many a " Joe Fight, " the realization of work well done for a cause which holds our interest, and finally the thrill that a first night always produces when we hear the whispered cry, " Ready Props? Ready Juice? Ready Stage? Standby .... UP CURTAIN! " The Juice Gang J. G. Spangler Chief Electrician DO you remember the red to amber to blue lighting effects at the Ring Dance last year; the light that revealed Tecumseh in war paint when we left for the Army game; and those acrobatic electric signs on Mahan Hall that reminded you of a first night performance on Broadway? All credit for these and innumerable other feats with A. C. goes to the Juice Gang, those savvy satellites of Prof. Howard. Day in and day out these fellows are over in their work shop armed with rubber-taped pliers, blowing fuses, circuit-breakers and lights. No, not with the idea of just fooling around, rather in developing new signs and preparing novel lighting effects for the stage. At each performance of the Navy Relief Show, the Masqueraders, and the Musical Club Show these men can be found either at the switchboard back stage or in the coop in the back of the Audi- torium, manning the spotlights. It was the hearty co-operation of this group that helped to make the performances this year a success. N £ Little Business Manager Petrie Drumtra Mayberry Ingersoll The Business and Property Gangs GENTLEMEN: In reply to your letter of the 15th, we are enclosing etc. " Thus may you always recognize the atmosphere created by the Business Gang of the Masqueraders and Musical Clubs. Beginning in January the offices of the Business and Advertising Managers prese nt scenes of frantic and desperate activity concerning contracts, bids, subscriptions, costumes, scenery, programs, tickets and all other cares encountered by any organization. And out of the confusion comes order — an attractive program and another production successfully financed. From this the Gang derives its pleasing satisfaction. Over in the " Prop " room of Mahan Hall, just before the curtain rises, you might hear some- thing like this, " Who saw Charlie ' s bottle? Doesn ' t anybody know where anything is around here? " Then you would know that the Property Gang was having its trying troubles. Nevertheless, every article, from the King ' s costume to ' s newspaper, is ready to go on the stage at the right instant. Little as the average spectator realizes it, the success of the production hinges fully as much on these small details as on the actions of the leading character.

During the connection of 1932 with the club, two way communication has been held with several South American countries, Hawaii, Canada, Panama, and Santo Domingo. Reports have been received that signals transmitted by station W3ADO, the Naval Academy Radio Club, have been heard in Spain, France, Germany, Soviet Russia, Austria, and Africa. Aside from the thrill of communication with far-off lands, the club has done useful work, too. Many messages have been handled . . . informal notes sent by or addressed to midshipmen. In the " shack, " Room 1109, may be found a maze of intricate apparatus, whose complications and functions are intelligible only to the initiated. To the end that more may understand the opera- tion of our three short-wave transmitters and necessary receivers, missionary educational work in amateur radio is a part of the club ' s program each year. That it has borne fruit is shown by the steadily increasing membership. All of us who have been " brass-pounders " for W3ADO are sorry to sever connections with it; and we hope to " work " it over the ether some day. ■f. 4 The Crest Committee T. G. Warmeld Chairman NEPTUNE supporting the world — that is the central figure of our crest. The Crest Committee felt like so many Neptunites that evening three years ago when the sack was placed in their hands for them to investigate and select a crest that would symbolize the class of ' 32 down through history. It was the class ' s first official act and had to be well done. Ideas came; jewelers had splen- did artists; in two months " 32 " was casting ballots in favor of the design that now shares with the Academy crest the honor position on our rings. June Week came and September leave — tiny pins of gold shifted from natty black neckties to dainty blouses. Never before did King Neptune win so many favors. He appeared on belt buckles, stationery, watch fobs — announcing to the world at large that the class of ' 32 was ready to render service and loyalty to the country. Let all who wear the crest remember that, and may many class pins become joint property. -•■fiafc-, The Ring Committee H. E. Shelton Chairman THE RING. It probably means more to us than any other concrete thing in our lives. It is a thing of beauty worthy of all the admiration given to it by us and by the friends to whom we proudly sh ow it. But its significance to us comes not so much from its intrinsic beauty as from the things it symbolizes: the bonds that tie our class together, the traditions of the Academy, the honor of the Service, the goal achieved by each one of us. Years may come and go, and its surface may be worn smooth, but time can only enhance our esteem for our Ring. At the end of second class summer we elected our Ring Committee, one member from each com- pany and one member at large. All second class year they worked, considering all the designs sug- gested and coordinating the best features into one which would adhere to tradition and yet be dis- tinctive of our class. Then the contract had to be concluded, and fingers had to be measured. Fin- ally, when second class June Week rolled around, it was ours, to keep and to wear forever. The Hop Committee H. M. Coleman Chairman A REGIMENTAL HOP — the June Ball — what pictures of courtly splendor such affairs conjure in the minds of all those who come to Annapolis, be they uninitiated Plebes or fair damsels arriving for a week-end. To the Hop Committee falls the pleasant task of seeing that these functions main- tain their reputation for social and military finesse. By their sword belts you shall know these men, courteous, ever ready to help a fair guest in her difficulties; be it to find a lost drag, to meet a chaperon, or announce the loss of a rhinestone buckle. They can always be found on the dance floor, keeping back the stag line, introducing members of the visiting teams, and tending to those hundred and one minor details that make the evening run smooth- ly. Oh, yes, little girl, they find time to dance too. But being a member of the Hop Committee brings not only the privilege of wearing the sword belt, but also the honor and pleasure of assisting the hostess in receiving our guests. Could there be any rarer treat than meeting all the drags present, and appearing, in their eyes, the beau of the ball?

They pause, the lady fair and warrior proud. She breathes a sigh and drops her glance. He watches and waits as gently she clasps his hand and slowly places thereon a replica of the magic ring in which they stand. And then a knight of the golden circlet made, he takes his lady fair and wafts her away with knightly grace, in cadence slow, as softly fall the silver strains beneath a canopy of gold and blue. Indeed, the Ring Dance Committee, formed several months before, had, by dint of much toil and splendid endeavor, made the occasion a memorable one. The giant ring, the colored lights, the streamers of blue and gold were all the results of their tireless efforts. So it is to them we express our heartfelt appreciation for the dance of dances, the Ring Dance of June, 1931. Standing: Frazer, Spangler, Sosnoski, Kerr, W. W.

Tagg Chairman A MERRY CHRISTMAS and a Happy New Year; " with that, we merely jot down an address on one of the Regiment ' s Christmas Cards and call ourYuletide duty finished; but few of us stop to realize all there is behind that Christmas Card, the vast amount of time and labor spent in its preparation. There is considerably more than dashing out to the printers a few weeks before Christmas and ordering several thousand cards. On the contrary, we have hardly returned from Christmas leave and settled down to the routine life again, when the Committee commences to func- tion. Many long hours are spent during valued week-ends by members, in interviewing representa- tives of various reputable concerns desiring to compete for the contract. Work goes on until gradua- tion draws near, and the contract is awarded to the best company. The summer sees the printing of proofs of the card and it is a proud group of midshipmen on the Committee who return to U. S. shores from the cruise and view the finished product. But even then, there are numerous changes to be made and time goes far into October before the finished card, tissue, envelope, and all, is finally ac- cepted. One month for printing of some thirty thousand copies and it is presented to the Regiment on Thanksgiving. " Do they like it? " Well, I ' m afraid the answer is altogether up to you and them. We know we are proud of it. Langen Fleck S. W. Brown R. M. Wilson D. I. Thomas Tagg f : [ Three Hundred Seventy-six ] The Class Supper Committee H. E. Shelton Chairman BACK in September, 1928, we had our first meal all together — we were alone in the mess hall. There were many squabbles over milk and extra desserts. Now it is May, 1932, and we are sitting down to our last meal in a body. Captain Schumann and Lieutenant Thompson worked loyally with the committee in providing this well laden table. Tonight there is no need for fights for food. It is a totally different picture from the scene of six hundred boys dressed in wrinkled white works. Three years in the Academy have made us men, wearing the blue uniform which in a month will trade its collar anchors for one broad stripe and a star. Even the decorations reveal the situation; the flags of all nations surround the banquet tables, silent reminders that soon we shall be scattered to the corners of the world. In spite of such sober thoughts it is a gay night; all formality is banned. One group is singing with the band; at another table they have remembered a practical joke on Burt Davis and are re- pieating it. How quickly the evening has passed; already we are all congratulating the committee on their good work as we leave the mess hall, talking of a reunion later on. Lamade Phillips Shelton Matter Rhoads [ Three Hundred Seventy-seven ] r-FgiV R. M. Wilson Chairman The Reception Committee ACTING upon the axiom that first impressions are always the most lasting ones, the Reception . Committee lends all its efforts toward the hospitable entertainment of all the visiting athletes. The favorable or unfavorable opinions which these men form of the Regiment arc the basis of its reputation throughout the colleges of the country. It is up to the members of this Committee to make this reputation the best possible. The work consists mainly of meeting the teams, escorting them to their rooms and meals, and showing them around the yard. It is profitable and entertaining, too, because of the number of acquaintances that are made with men from other schools. The Reception Committee is one of the most important of the non-athletic activities that are associated with athletics. It acts to promote sportsmanship and good feeling between the Naval Academy and the civilian colleges of the country, and endeavors by its position as official host to perform its duties in such a manner as to bring credit not only to the Academy but to the service as a whole.

Each day cur- rent newspapers and periodicals are distributed in Smoke Hall and at the Hospital. Then each Sun- day evening in Memorial Hall speakers are introduced to the Regiment; these men bring news of the situation in Russia or Japan, tell stories of adventure and life on the ' " ole devil sea, " or mingle lively wit with current events, to send us to our rooms in a good humor, ready to begin another week.

It covered getting out dope sheets, running rallies, and preparing a Pep Log for the last football game. In general, working for the common good and closer co-ordination of the Regiment and the Football team. Last year the colored card stunts were introduced as a mid-game attraction, and the job was turned over to this year ' s gang. They really carried out the idea to the fullest extent and prepared a series of stunts that took the people out of their seats at every game away. Little is known of the work that went on before the games, filling out instruction cards for days before, only to find at the stadium that the arrangement would have to be revised. Such were some of the breaks, but the Committee was partially rewarded for its efforts when the Regiment was again awarded the title of " The All- American Cheering Section.

Over the field of sport and in Macdonough Hall this spirit hovers, ever inspiring those who strive. As we follow the story of the year in Navy Athletics we find that there have been ups and downs. But the record, viewed as a whole, is an enviable one — one that cannot be equaled by any other institution in the world. It is one that could never be achieved but for the ever-present, impelling influence of the Spirit of the Volunteer. Itl- ' .l THE " A " SQUAD Football NAVY ' S 1931 Football Season was one of transition. A new coaching staff took charge, and their task, which was no light one, was to perfect the Navy squad in the intricacies of the Rockne system of play. Although Rip Miller, the new head coach, had served several seasons as line coach under Bill Ingram using the Warner system, he resolved to make no compromise in the change, and set out to establish the new system in its entirety. He was seconded by a staff well qualified to assist him in this. Christy Flanagan was appointed backfield coach, and Johnny O ' Brien came later as backfield coach. Both were former stars at Notre Dame. Ensign " Plug " Hughes, former star Navy center, returned, for his second year, as line coach. In the spring, several weeks of practice were held and a large number of men turned out. There was much enthusiasm, and the new coach and his system won the confidence of the players. When the squad returned from leave in September, the real work began. There was much to do before the opening tilt, which marked the beginning of an eleven game schedule, one of the hardest ever played by a Navy team. The results of the season, although not all that migh t have The Re iment Performs TuTTLE, Captain Miller, Head Coach [ Three Hundred Eighty-eight } The 193 1 Season been desired, were highly successful in view of the difficulties of getting adjusted to the new system. In line of statistics, the Navy team played before more than 326,000 spectators during the season. The Army game, the second to be played with Army for the benefit of charity, earned for that cause over $300,000. Captain Tuttle, at center, was probably the most outstanding player on the team. His per- sistence in breaking through and nailing a runner behind the scrimmage line made him a terror to all opponents. Harbold ably filled this position as a substitute. Underwood, Reedy, Thomp- son, and McCrea handled the guard assignments. Bryan and James were the outstanding tackles, and Kane showed up well. Elliot and Smith did good work at the end positions, with Born and Pray frequ ently receiving the call and Murray developing nicely toward the end of the season. Many players saw service in the backfield during the season. Moncure, Denny, Davis, and Becht took turns at quarterback. Kirn and Tschirgi were the stellar halfbacks, but Konrad, Samuels, Chung Hoon, and Waybright all did good work. Campbell and Hurley handled the fullback assignment capably. ; iJ.K ' " - ' ' The Cadets Test Their Lungs £ Three Hundred Eighty-nine ] THE KICKOFF WILLIAM AND MARY WE started the season off by downing William and Mary 13 to 6. The day was hot, and the game therefore a bit slow, but as Navy ' s first attempt to use the new system in a game, it was quite satisfactory. Tschirgi, Konrad, and Campbell did most of the ball-carrying, the former two accounting for the scores. The second team started, and they succeeded in keeping the opponents from the Navy go al, although most of the first period was played in Navy terri- tory. The first team took the field early in the second period, and after a punt- ing duel, Tschirgi tossed the ball from midfield to Konrad, who galloped across for the first score. The try for point failed. The opening of the second half provided a thrill. Campbell received the kickoff and ran it back 65 yards to the Indian 25 yard line. On the next play, Tschirgi tore through tackle for another touchdown. Konrad kicked the extra point. During the remainder of the period the play seesawed back and forth near the center of the field. In the fourth quarter William and Mary resorted to a concentrated passing attack. Completing four passes in eight attempts, they advanced the ball seventy yards for a first down on the two-yard line. On the fourth try, Chalko put the ball across for the visitors ' only score. Then Navy began to substitute freely. There was no more scoring, but as the game ended, the second stringers were sweeping through the Indian line for long gains. Reedy Kane . NAVY GOES THROUGH [Three Hundred Ninety ] I MARYLAND FOR the second game, we went over to Washington on the hot afternoon of October 10th, and met Maryland in Griffith Stadium. We had really expected to beat the Terps in spite of their weight advantage, but although the statistics chart gave us perhaps a slight edge, we were unable to cross the goal, while the opponents scored once on a long pass that came in the third period. The first half provided several thrills. The first was Maryland ' s opening drive which penetrated to Navy ' s 25-yard line. Here, however. Navy stiffened up and took the ball on downs. Then Tschirgi took the bail and twisted through for a 23-yard gain before being tackled by Woods, who was a bulwark of Mary- land ' s defense throughout the game. Tschirgi fumbled on being tackled, but Campbell recovered. A minute later, Campbell intercepted a pass and Navy drove to the 12-yard line, but could get no further. Just after the opening of the second half, Maryland recovered a Navy fumble in midfield and executed a triple pass, Chalmers tossing the ball 30 yards to Pease, who ran the remaining 20 yards to the goal unmolested for the lone score of the game. In the fourth period, Elliot blocked another kick, and Navy drove to the 10-yard line, Chung Hoon tossing passes to Samuels and Smith. Navy lost the ball on downs, and Maryland ' s punt went out on the 20-yard line. Maryland again took the ball on downs, however, and Navy ' s chance to score was lost. The game ended with the score: Navy, 0; Maryland, 6. Born Elliot [ Three Hundred Ninety-one ] i 4 I r " -;jjigti -i » - ' Hurley r-f- ' tafc ' fr " ? DELAWARE STOPPED DELAWARE ALTHOUGH scheduled as a breather, the Delaware game turned out to be a thriller. Navy scored in the first quarter, but in the last Delaware jumped to a 7 to 6 lead. And then we had the satisfaction of seeing a first string back- field take the field with the definite assignment of making a score, and do that thing. The second team started and remained in for most of the first half, keeping the ball in Navy ' s possession most of the time. The first score came after a Navy drive in which Chung Hoon and Hurley carried the ball to the 15-vard line. Here the Delaware defense tightened, but Moncure tossed a beautiful pass to Samuels, who was standing on the goal line. Then a long punting battle ensued, Kane getting off some nice boots. As the second half opened, Delaware took the offensive, and gained con- siderable ground on aerial work. Green tossed one pass from the 40-vard line to Kempske, who romped to the goal from the 10-yard line and tied the score. Lane kicked the extra point to give Delaware a lead. With eleven minutes to go, Campbell, Konrad, Tschirgi, and Denny went into the game. Their first drive was stopped, and punts were exchanged. Then Campbell and Tschirgi tore through for long gains, and Konrad dove over right tackle for the touch- down which cinched the game. Score: Navy, 12; Delaware, 7. Chung Hoon THEY GET OFF A PUNT [ Three Hundred Ninety-two } PRINCETON ON October 24, we journeyed to Princeton, and in Palmer Stadium on the stately Nassau campus won a hard fight from a brave foe. The first quarter was scoreless. Navy started poorly, and Princeton flashed a strong offensive. However, Konrad ' s punts, many of which soared over 70 yards, kept them out of striking distance. Early in the second quarter, Tschirgi and Campbell made two first downs. Then when rushing failed to gain, Under- wood was called back to try a dropkick from the 35-yard line. He put it neatly over the bar, as Whitey Lloyd had done three years before against this same opponent. That started us. Bryan recovered the fumbled kickoff, and Konrad ran wide around left end for a touchdown. Opening the second half. Navy made a long drive, Campbell, Konrad, and Tschirgi carrying the ball. After two first downs, Princeton took the ball and advanced to the Navy 35-yard line, but were stopped here when James recovered a fumble. Then Kirn entered the game, and hurled a pass to Konrad to put the ball on the Princeton 26-yard line. The fourth period started with a bang, Samuels romping around left end for 20 yards. Shortly after. Kirn intercepted a pass. After first down, Smith caught a pass and fought to the 9-yard line. Samuels put the ball on the 1-yard line, and Denny dived over center for a score, which made it Navy 15, Princeton 0. )f ' i James NO GAIN Konrad [ Three Hundred Ninety-three ] THE LINE OPENS UP Campbell ■• ; WEST VIRGINIA WESLEYAN ABIT overconfident after our success of the previous week, we were unpre- pared for the determined defensive battle put up by West Virginia Wesleyan. Navy showed greater offensive power, but were ineffective within the 10-yard line, and the result was a scoreless deadlock. Navy ' s second team began. Wesleyan made a first down, but were forced to kick. Navy then made a march of four first downs, Chung Hoon and Hurley making some pretty runs. But bucks and passes failed, and the Bobcats booted to Becht, who was downed all but over his goal line. Navy made a second long march before the quarter ended. The second period began deep in Wesleyan territory, but twice they held for downs. Beginning the second half, Konrad and Campbell carried the ball for a first down, but Wesleyan recovered a fumble and kicked. Konrad and Kirn made a first down, and Campbell plunged 10 yards for another. Kirn got off a quick kick as the quarter ended. Wesleyan kicked, and Navy made two first downs. Konrad ' s long punt was downed by Elliot on the enemy 7-yard line. Denny ran the Bobcat punt back 15 yards. Navy fumbled, but Kirn recovered by inter- cepting a pass. A little later, Tuttle recovered a fumble, and Denny passed to Kirn for a first down on the 13-yard line, but the Bobcats held for downs. The game ended shortly after. Score: Navy, 0; Wesleyan, 0. [ Three Hundred Ninety-four } ON the rainy Saturday following, the team journeyed to Columbus to play Ohio State in the homecoming game, before 60,000 spectators. Navy out- gained their opponents, scored more first downs, passed them dizzy, and acted very little as though they were losing a game, but Ohio took advantage of every break and won. Kirn was the big gun of the Navy attack, fast in carrying the ball and accurate in passing. During the first period, Navy ' s punting was poor and most of the play was deep in their territory. State failed to organize their offensive, however. A short Navy punt early in the second quarter was fatal. State made a first down and passed for a score. Then, as Konrad ' s kick was blocked, a Buckeye scooped it up to run 25 yards for Ohio ' s second score. The balance of the first half was played in Ohio ' s territory. In the third quarter. Navy threw a pass deep in their own territory which was intercepted by a Buckeye who crossed the goal for Ohio ' s final score. Navy threatened three times during the period. Kirn ' s two passes, one to Tschirgi and one to Smith, put the ball on the 18-yard line, but his next heave was inter- cepted, as was another a bit later. Davis tried one drop kick, but it fell short. In the fourth quarter, Navy again took to the air, and once penetrated to the Buckeye 15-yard mark, but the Ohio line held here and Navy never threatened thereafter. As the game ended, the score stood: Ohio State, 20; Navy, 0. :-t ' f Samuels [ Three Hundred Ninety- fipe ] Davis THROUGH THE IRISH LINE m NOTRE DAME IN Baltimore Stadium, packed to capacity, the somewhat crippled Navy team engaged the powerful football machine of Notre Dame, which had already trampled roughshod over some of the strongest teams in the country. Navy lost, but in holding the Irish scoreless throughout three periods they rose to such defensive heights that after the game the feeling we had was one of pride. As the game started, Notre Dame received and made two first downs, but Navy stiffened in time. At a strategical moment, Davis called a quick kick which took the Irish completely by surprise and was downed behind their own goal line. Early in the second quarter, Schwartz, behind perfect interference, ran 16 yards for a touchdown, Jaskwich kicking the extra point. Receiving the kickoff, the Irish made another march for their second touchdown, but Brooks blocked the attempted placement. Navy received the next kickoff and made first down, but Notre Dame took the ball and a long pass brought them their third and last touchdown. In the third quarter, Notre Dame would drive for one or two first downs, only to be stopped as they approached the goal line. In the final quarter, three scoring threats were broken up when Davis and Harbold intercepted passes and Underwood recovered a Notre Dame fumble. The period was played almost entirely in Navy territory, but the Blue refused to let the Irish pass the broad stripe for another score. MoNCURE [ Three Hundred Ninety-six ] A LEFT END RUN SOUTHERN METHODIST THE Southern Methodist game, played in Thompson Stadium before a crowd much smaller than had been expected, was a thrilling one but a heartbreaking one. The opponents were as yet undefeated, and had beaten us decisively the year before, but after we had led them in the first quarter and swamped their running attack throughout the game, the defeat which came as a result of two long corner passes was hard to take. S. M. U. ran Navy ' s first punt back 55 yards, but fumbled, Tuttle recovering. After an exchange of kicks, the Mustangs fumbled again, and Murray recovered on the 17-yard line. On the next play Davis caught a pass in the corner and stumbled over to give Navy six points. Early in the second quarter, Travis of S. M. U. threw a pass to Mason, who romped over the goal to tie the score. A short Navy punt gave the ball to the Mustangs on the Navy 30-yard line. Fail- ing to gain through the line, they worked the same pass combination for another score, and added the extra point. During the scoreless second half, the battle waged even more fiercely than in the first. Another Mustang pass put the ball on the Navy 4-yard line, but Navy made a valiant four down stand to avert another score. In the final period, Navy hurled passes and made substantial gains through the weakening Mustang line, once penetrating to the 10-yard line, but passes were intercepted at critical moments, and in the gathering dusk the game ended. I !■«■ !t Smith Stannard [ Three Hundred Ninety-seven ] i Pray Becht NAVY STARTS FROM SCRATCH WOOSTER THE last home game of the season was played against Wooster, on a wet and sloppy field. Navy ' s victory was quite decisive, but the Ohioans put up a noble fight. Navy started slowly, but toward the end of the first period, Campbell and Kirn were making consistent gains which put the ball in Wooster territory for the first time. The drive continued into the second quarter, but a determined Wooster line and an incomplete pass prevented a score. After an exchange of punts, however. Kirn, Konrad, and Tschirgi carried the ball to the 23-yard line, from where Tschirgi, behind the goal, caught a pass for Navy ' s first score. Early in the second half, Chung Hoon, Waybright, Denny, and Becht took over the backfield assignment, and they went like wildfire. The first march ended when Chung Hoon went 12 yards around right end for Navy ' s second score. Costly fumbles and pen alties kept the ball in midfield from then into the final period, when Samuels wriggled down the sideline through a maze of would-be tacklers for Navy ' s final touchdown. This time the point was converted. Waybright made a 75-yard run to the goal which, unfortunately, didn ' t count, and a Navy kick was blocked, which gave Wooster the ball on the Navy 1-yard line. Navy wouldn ' t give an inch in three downs, but on the last Wooster bored through for their only touchdown. Final score: Navy, 19; Wooster, 6. ONE THAT DIDN ' T WORK £ Three Hundred Ninety-eight J PENNSYLVANIA THE sixth of December brought the most thrilling game of the season so far. Weather conditions at Franklin Field were ideal, and 60,000 people saw Navy execute a 51-yard pass play to defeat the favored Quakers. It was the only pass which Navy completed, but it brought the touchdown that spelled a Navy victory, the fifth out of six games played by Navy on Franklin Field in four years. Navy had a slight edge in all departments of the game except punting, according to statistics. However, during the first three periods the play was mostly in Navy territory. Five times the Penn eleven had first down within the Navy 35-yard line, but on these occasions the Navy defense was impregnable. The defensive work of Captain Tuttle and of Murray was outstanding. Shortly after the start of the second quarter, Tschirgi picked up a Penn fumble in midfield before it had touched the ground and raced to the goal. But the referee had blown his whistle, and the score was not allowed. However, that didn ' t worry Tut and his team. With seven minutes of the game remaining, and the ball in Navy ' s possession on their own 49-yard line, third down, Lou Kirn dropped back and passed far down field to Tschirgi. The latter was in the clear, and caught the ball with- out losing a stride and continued on his way to the goal. The Navy stands rose to a joyous roar. The victory was Navy ' s, 6 to 0. McCrea Murray [ Three Hundred Ninety-nine } TSCHIRGI Undlrwc THE WAR IS ON The Army AT last the great day came. We swung into Yankee Stadium, and the Army - game, for which we had been waiting since early in the season, was close at hand. The Cadets were already in their places. Secretary of the Navy Adams, Assistant Secretary of War Payne, Generals, Admirals, and hundreds of other officers were among the 75,000 spectators who filled the rest of the stadium. Navy won the toss and elected to defend the South goal. Army kicked oft and the battle was on. Punts were exchanged, and then Kirn ran 12 yards off left tackle for first down. Then a punt was blocked, and Army took possession on Navy ' s 42-yard line. But they failed by a foot to make first down. Punts were again exchanged. Here a Navy fumble gave Army the ball on the Navy 32- yard line, but Tuttle threw Brown for an 8-yard loss and Army had to kick. Army began the second quarter with a drive that reached the Navy 7-yard line, where the Navy defense tightened and held for downs. When the Gray- legs failed to gain in three downs, Brown dropped back and place kicked a field goal. Score: Army, 3; Navy, 0. Then play seesawed until Major Sasse sent in a new backfield. A pass from Fields to Kopcsak put the ball on the Navy 1-yard line for a 34-yard gain, and Herb carried it over for a touchdown, kicking the extra point. The half ended soon after. Score: Army, 10; Navy, 0. THE KAYDETS PASS IN REVIEW [ Foiir Ihiiidred } I 1 Game Between the halves the Navy stands were tense, silent. But Navy had not given up yet, and the team came back in the third quarter with a vengeance. James blocked the Graylegs ' first punt, and Bryan recovered on Army ' s 30-yard line. But Stecker intercepted a pass, and Army kicked. Navy punted in re- turn; the Army receiver dropped the ball when tackled, and Elliot recovered for Navy at midfield. Navy tried passes, but one was intercepted, and again Navy was set back. But next time, with the ball in Navy ' s possession on their 45- yard line. Kirn dropped back and heaved a tremendous pass down to Tschirgi, near the right side of the field beyond the last Army man, and he crossed the Army goal. Becht made the placement good. Score: Army, 10; Navy, 7. Early in the fourth quarter, an unbalanced exchange of punts gave Army the ball on Navy ' s 35-yard line, and from there, with Stecker doing most of the carrying, they pounded to the 1-yard line. On the fourth attempt. Herb plunged through for Army ' s final touchdown, and then kicked the extra point. For the rest of the game. Navy kept the Graylegs from gaining, and fought valiantly to score. Navy completed a pass for a 24-yara gain to the Army 40-yard line as the game ended. Score: Army, 17; Navy, 7. It had been a great battle, and the Navy team to a man had fought well. THE REGIMENT CHEERS THE CORPS Kirn Bryan [ Four Hundred One ] i;L i,-i. " _ " . •- ' . ' i ii?

A good squad turned out and hopes for a successful season were high. A fine bunch of veterans reported, led by Captain Red Corry, one of the outstanding halfbacks in the East. Hutchinson, all-American fullback of last year was there, along with such old timers as George Corson, Bill Kelly, Shovestul, and Dillon. Tommy Taylor, head coach, taught the boys lots of good soccer. Tommy is one of the best coaches in the game. The team had a fairly successful season, winning 4, losing 3, and tying 1 out of 8 starts. The boys played superbly at times, but they had their off moments too. " Red " Corry, captain, was the star, winning all American honors. Shovestul was one of the best attack men in the game. Kelly, Hutchinson, Sowerwine and Dillon also did excellent work. The season opened with Franklin and Marshall providing the opposition and a close game resulted. The Blue and Gold won 5-3 to open the season in a blaze of glory. Geist, Shovestul, Wigfall, and Ellenberger starred on defense, while Corry and Hutchinson played fine games on the offense. Then came Haverford with another of their well balanced veteran teams. Navy and Haverford always seem to be about equally matched on the soccer field and each year the fur flies when they meet. m- W ' i-Y ' fVf ' " f t f tt ? THL SQCAD Back Row: Lennox.

Dewitt, Mgr. aoe Scst Tie Haverford won 2-1, but only after one of the most thrilling soccer games ever to be played at the Academy. Navy played excellently and only the very super-excellence of the Haverford team enabled them to win. The first quarter was scoreless, each team playing closely and feeling the other out. Then in the second the fireworks started. Haverford scored first, 1 minute after the quarter started. Shove- stul evened it up as he scored on a corner kick from Ramey. Then the scoring ceased as both sides fought to take the lead. Well into the fourth period Haverford made it 2-1, and although Navy pressed hard another goal was not forthcoming. The Navy offense of Hutchinson, Seipt, Sowerwine, Shovestul, and Geist kept the Haverford team on the defensive most of the time but couldn ' t quite score. Western Maryland was next and under the ideal playing conditions Navy romped home to victory on a 7-2 score. Navy scored first in the first quarter and was never headed afterwards. The half ended 4-2. The Blue and Gold attack slacked up a bit in the next period which was scoreless. In the final stanza the Navy boys hit their stride to boot in three while holding the opposition scoreless. The Navy was superior throughout and a marked improvement of play was noted. Kelly, Geist, and Shovestul starred on the offense while " Hutch " and Red Corry played stellar games defensively. 1: i A BOOT THAT SCORED [ Four Hundred Three ] ' ' m ' ' mstj ! Shovestul h. IXWN THE FIELD A fighting Bucknell team fought in vain to stem the tide of Tommy Taylor ' s freebooters, but the best they could do was to hold the Blue and Gold to a 8-2 win. Navy was never in danger but couldn ' t get going until the second half. Navy led 2-0 at the half. The next period was all Navy, four goals being driven home. In the final frame the visitors rallied to tally twice while Navy scored twice. Outstanding for Navy were Corry, Price and Shovestul. Kelly and Dillon also played well. The Brown and White from Lehigh brought a surprisingly strong team down to battle Tommy Taylor ' s boys to a stalemate. The game was close throughout. Lehigh scored first but Geist knotted the count early in the third quarter. The entire first half was hotly contested, but the Navy defense was not up to its usual high standard. Late in the third quarter Geist again drove in a nice side kick to send Navy out ahead 2-1. The fight was on, both teams trying to score again. With 15 seconds to go Lehigh got a penalty kick and Gould made it good. The game ended 2 to 2 and darkness prevented a play off. Geist was by far the star of the game. The Freebooters lost to Syracuse 3-2 in the rain in a hard fought game. While the field was dry the Blue and Gold ran up two goals to Kelly THE GOALIE STOPS ONE I ' " m [ Four Hundred Four } : KELLY PUTS THE BALL L ITS PLACE take the lead, but with the rain came Syracuse luck, as the Taylorites failed to score again. The Orange-clad men seemed to be better mud- ders, and so another was chalked up on the red side of the ledger. The Gettysburg kickers bowed to the Navy eleven 7 0. Numerous substitutes were used and after the first half with Navy leading 5 to the scoring slackened a bit. The Navy team led by virtue of their better heading and footwork and superior defense work. Clatanoff, the visitors ' goalie, kept the score down only by some superb stopping of shots. The Soccer season ended with a trip to Yale in which Navy was defeated 3-0 in a closely played game. At no time was the Navy really outplayed or outfought, but goals just weren ' t. Yale tallied in the first quarter, again in the third and the final shot was sunk just as the game ended. The day was cold and cloudy and a strong wind was sweeping across the field to make play at times a bit erratic. The Yale defense each time stopped Captain Corry and Shovestul. Corry, playing his last game, was outstanding for Navy. Thus the season ended. The record was not a perfect one, but yet may be looked upon with pride. 1 I i U H INsuN Captain Gibson Blouin Coach Thompson Cross Country THE material for cross country this year was excellent, about seventy men turning out at the first call. Although Navy lost two out of four meets, the season was not a failure by any means. The outstanding men were Captain Gibson, Captain-elect Blouin, Burton, Rogers, Has- kins and Van Slyke. Hardman, star track and cross country man of last year was out for the entire season due to a bad muscle, and his loss was severely felt. The season opened with Virginia, and the Hill and Dalers took them into camp, 21-34. Captain Scotty Gibson led for three miles, but Tauck of Virginia overtook him on the home stretch to win. Holden of the visitors was third but the rest of the Navy boys finished in a row to cinch the meet. The team showed good balance and for an opening meet the times were fine. Maryland was the next victim and fell 20 to 35 before the Navy troops. Seven of the first ten were Navy men. " Scotty " Gibson took THE SQUAD Back Row: Vogeley (Asst.

The Mountaineers of West Virginia ended Earl Thompson ' s three year record of supremacy by a 20-35 win. West Virginia took the first four places with Captain " Scotty " taking fifth; Griffith, Blouin, Fahy and Haskins finished in order. Led by a fleet-footed Sophomore the Blue Devils of Duke gave the Hill and Dalers their second successive defeat in the last meet of the season. This left the team with a 50-50 record, two wins and two losses. Dependable " Scotty " Gibson took second in almost record time to close his cross country career. The visitors had a well balanced team and the score, 23-32, is fairly indicative of the relative strength of the teams. While the season was not as successful as previous ones, an " off year " should not be taken too hard. Next year ' s squad, with Hardman well, Blouin, Griffith, Burton and McCutchan back, and Burdick up from the Plebes will be a new power in cross country circles. !l ! i NA V Lt, Ub THE PACK [ Four Hundred Seven } 1 .

Under Coach Johnny Wilson, the game has progressed by noticeable amounts from year to year and this fact, plus a good hard schedule, made the record worthy of com- mendation. The losses of the season were at the hands of Penn, who wasn ' t beaten by a Navy basketball team during the class of Thirty-two ' s four- yea r stay, of Maryland, who made it a clean sweep in their competition with Navy teams during the year at the dedication of the new gym- nasium at College Park, and of American University, who although a small college, are nevertheless the leaders in local basketball circles. The pre-Christmas opening was with Lafayette which was defeated by a 35-23 score. It was evident in this first game that the squad had a number of possibilities, but they did not fully bloom until later in the season. The Maroon was followed by Lehigh.

But the Bethlehemites were impotent even before the subs and the score mounted up to 38 to 19 as a final. The Wednesday games started with Franklin and Marshall which was easily downed, 37 to 15. For the week-end tilt, the team traveled to the strongholds of Virginia University where they displayed the reputational prowess of the Navy and came home with a 25 to 24 vic- tory. Virginia scored fifteen points before Navy was able to find the basket, and it looked like a sad day. However, a rally put us only six points behind at the end of the half and things looked better. After the rest period, the defense became impregnable while the offense func- tioned perfectly. With six minutes left. Navy dropped a basket to tie the score at 21-21 and in the remaining time scored just enough to eke out the victory. Then came the first defeat. Lon Jourdet ' s Penn squad broke the victory record in a home game, 27 to 25 in a last minute rally that had the fans on their feet most of the time. Navy led most of the way and it was only in the closing minutes that the Quakers were able to drop three baskets that won the game for them. In the Saturday game of that week, Duke University was taken, 36 to 25, and Navy was avenged for the defeats of two years at the hands of the North Carolina Blue Devils. Parker, Mgr. OSLER m| LoUGHLlN NAVY LOOPS ONE THROUGH [ Pour Hundred Eleven } I THE TIPOFF It seemed to be a bad time all around at this point, because the Maryland loss and the American U. defeat came right together. At the dedication of the Ritchie Gym on the Maryland campus, the team failed to pull the dedication act that usually means defeat for the home team and after a tough battle had only fifteen points to show for the opponents ' twenty-six. American pulled a surprise by flashing a strong attack and a defense that staved off the Navy ' s rally at the end to hold a precious two point lead in a 22 to 20 game. From this point on, the season was a clean sweep. The V. M. I. Cadets were powerless before the rejuvenation and were swamped 39 to 19. Western Maryland could gain no more than nineteen points, too, in the Saturday game, while the local team rolled up a total of forty-nine. In both games the attack functioned perfectly and there was never a doubt about the outcome from the opening whistle. Then the Ohio State game and the Randolph-Macon. The latter team was hopelessly outclassed and were downed 48 to 22. In the Buckeye game, the team showed the best form of the whole season and gave a sterling performance against two smooth State outfits. At half time we led 20-16, but insofar as the Ohio coach had used his regulars only for a few minutes during the first frame, it was apparent that the second half would be a thriller and result a toss-up. After the rest period. Navy started right in pounding on the enemy defenses. With eight minutes gone, the lead had been rolled up to eight points, which was the largest advantage gained during the entire battle. Ohio rallied and almost instantly the score was tied at twenty-nine all and things began to look bad. The lead see-sawed back and forth for the remaining four minutes, and the game was anyone ' s. However, Bedell dropped a field goal and Loughlin slipped over a foul shot and the game was over. Score, 35-32. II [ Four Hundred Twelve } fail lie iBKBOOe iapac. dans nvncu SMUKC Only four games now remained on the schedule. Of these, perhaps the strongest team encountered was Pittsburgh. This game started out somewhat on the order of the Ohio game, but in the last half Navy rolled up a nice lead and at the closing whistle were on the long end of a 29-22 score. Haverford and Swarthmore were swamped, 43-19 and 46-25, respectively, in Wednesday games. In the Haverford game, the defense was unpierceable and Haverford was able to score only one field goal during the entire first frame. Johnny Wilson used all the subs during the second half and it was only while the regulars were off the floor that the visitors were able to tally at all. The wind-up game of the season was with Harvard. At half time the score stood at sixteen all, a last minute rally overcoming a six point lead for the Crimson. In the second period the smooth functioning team swept all opposi- tion aside and closed the season with a 33 to 27 victory. Of the squad, only three regular players will be lost for next season. Captain Chittenden will of course retire from the field, and will take with him Frazer and Osier. Elliott Loughlin will still be on hand, along with Bedell, Kastein, Campbell and Christie. The losses still leave a well balanced squad and this, plus the plebe squad that had an undefeated season, should make a perfect 1933 record. f;4.i:: Rankin { Fo»r Hundred Thirteen ] Captain Davis Arthur Boxing Coach Webb FuLMEK. SPIKE WEBB ' S boxers swept aside all opposition in the Season of Nineteen Thirty-two and emerged from one of the toughest schedules of a great many years with a thousand per cent record. Webb presented his usual well-balanced team with surprises and craft as the principal feature of the whole. The schedule was unusual in that for the first time in a great many years, the arch-rival, Penn State, was omitted. Also, this year was the first year of Navy ' s retirement from the Intercollegiate Association and for these two reasons, the season left a little to be desired. The list of Louisiana State, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Syracuse, Western Maryland and Penn made up the season. Of these, the first two are comparatively new to the ring game and it was expected that they would offer little opposition. But the feature of the year was that the teams from whom was expected the least trouble offered the most. The opening meet was with Louisiana. The Southerners offered good clean opposition and a varied attack and almost gained a victory. They won two of the bouts and earned draws in two o thers giving them a total of three, while Navy took the longer end of the total score of h THE SQUAD Batk Row: Schwartz, Wendleburg, Black, Newman, List, Schmid, Allen, Blue, Lee, Rockwell, Platt, Fulmer, Fhchs Second Row: Gates, Fulp, Shannon, Purdy, Chambers, McNaughton, Elliott, Powell, Johnson, Meizger, Garrison, CORBIN, DOLAN, HOPKINS, SCHERINI Third Row: Kenna, Brownrigg, Pray, Haskins, Shellabarger, Harbold, Jackson, Searcy.

QOE Tx fat iK n ilk bd ka rrf seven. The indelible impression of this meet was the downfall of Fulmer and the bout that Reedy had with Khoury. The latter is of mountainous proportions and even the good sized Reedy looked small alongside of him. The bout went to almost the end of the second round, with Reedy doing a good job when Khoury got across a killer that ended the bout. In this meet, Wright, McNaughton and Arthur earned points for Navy, while Kenna and Miller were given the draws. New Hampshire came next and was downed five to two. The meet produced three knockouts, one orthodox and two technical. Dolan earned the orthodox one for Navy in the 125 pound class by dropping McCaughney of the visitors in the third round. Of the technicals, McNaughton scored one for Navy and Meerman one for New Hampshire. The other Navy points were scored by Arthur, Reedy and Kenna while the opponents gained theirs in the lower weights, one on the technical scored over Fulmer and the referee ' s decision for Snell over Wright in the 115 pound class. After them came the Tarheel boxers of North Carolina State. These were also downed five bouts to two. It was not at all a fast meet, with only a very few knockdowns and no knockouts at all. It was very close, but not at all exciting. Navy ' s points were scored by Wright, Nauman, who replaced Fulmer at 135 pounds, Kenna, McNaughton Kenna McNaughton JUST BEFORE THE BATTLE [ Four Hundred Frfteen ] ii and Arthur, who substituted at Heavyweight for Reedy. The Chapel Hill points were scored over Dolan and Powell in the 175 pound weight. At the expense of Syracuse, who represent the only defeat for Navy boxers in thirteen years of competition, revenge was taken. The defeat last year in the lair of the Orange was avenged four bouts to three. It was the toughest meet of the year as its result depended on the light-heavyweight fracas, which was taken by Arthur to give Navy the meet. The Syracuse team presented some of the same men who had faced Navy boxers last year and it was expected that it would be close. Wright scored the first point and Captain Wertheimer of the visitors evened it up at the expense of Miller. Then Fulmer got a victory and Syracuse took two quick ones in a row. Kenna lost to Ross and then came the Lee-Moran battle. Moran is the most dangerous man in any weight in all college circles and against him Spike pitted a newcomer, Lee. It was a tough battle all the way with the fans on their feet from the opening bell until Moran finally crossed one over that sank Lee to the canvas. McNaughton evened up the score with a technical over Korch and then Arthur made it a Navy day with his third round victory over Gutzman. The last home meet was with Western Maryland. This also was won five bouts to two. In this meet, Wright, Fulmer, and Lee scored knockouts with Arthur and McNaughton earning the other two points. The scores for the Green were made in the 125 and the Heavyweight classes, Tuckerman defeating Dolan in the former and Pincura get- ting the points over Reedy in the latter. Dolan The home season over, the team made their only trip of the year to Philadelphia for the Penn meet. Navy took the first three bouts in a row. Wright hooked Nicholson all over the ring for a referee ' s decision and Miller followed it up with a like victory over Davis. Then Fulmer floored Mason in the third round, for the third point. Lord retaliated in the next weight by getting a technical over Lee when the referee stopped the bout in the second round. The stopping of the fight was really not because of any superiority of Lord, but only due to a bad cut over Lee ' s eye. Penn took another point in the Kenna-Weeks bout. Kcnna dropped Weeks at the end of the second round, and only the bell saved him from the count. However, after the rest. Weeks made up the ground lost and Referee McCracken gave him the fight. McNaughton scored the last whole point for Navy in his bout with James. Then Arthur and Bailey battled for three rounds to a draw and the meet was Navy ' s, four and a half bouts to two and a half. The 1932 Boxing season was productive of good men. Perhaps the most outstanding performer of the year was McNaughton, who always showed a marked superiority over every man that he fought. He still has two years of Boxing ahead of him and should become one of the Greats that Webb has produced. Others that appeared for the first time were Miller, Nauman, Reedy, Arthur and Lee. Of these, Arthur graduates along with Kenna, leaving practically an intact squad for the season of 1933. Miller [ Four Hundred Seventeen ] i»;w«ji s « ; ;i5!SK»fi ' ' .; Capt.

After two weeks of extensive training the Lehigh team, Eastern Champions and traditional foes, arrived. The meet was close and hotly contested throughout, but the Blue and Gold was victorious, 23-13. Hughes, White, and Goodman started the ball rolling by scoring falls in quick succession. Lehigh hopes rallied a bit when Joe Loughlin went down scrapping via a side chancery applied by Captain Shaw of the invaders. Then Silverstein met Bishop, and in a hectic struggle with two overtime periods won a decision. In the 165 pound class Gerry Cole- man met Peck, Eastern title holder. Conceded a small chance of victory, Gerry sallied forth and after five minutes of close battling secured a tight body lock from which Peck never moved. That fall sewed up the meet.

Next was the epic struggle with the National Champions from Oklahoma A. M. Hughes nearly threw Hesser, but the latter came out and won by three minutes. White wrestled his best bout against Captain Pearce of the visitors. Neither could handle the other well, but Pearce ' s experience as a National Champ enabled him to win by a minute and some seconds. Captain Goodman lost a hard fought battle to Razor, and Loughlin lost by a decision. Then Silverstein and Moore, another champ, fought in the most exciting battle of the day, and Murph came out with a large time ad- vantage. Coleman scored the only fall in an overtime bout. After proving his superiority in the early minutes, a wristlock popped Klinsman ' s shoulder out of joint and Navy was obliged to default the bout.

Silverstein and Coleman were forced by the defensive tactics of the visitors to win only decisions. Lehman, a new-comer, lost a close decision and Kane lost on a sudden fall. The Brown meet was unimpressive as the boys rolled up a 34-0 win. Martin wrestled his first bout and won nicely. White continued the good work with a fall. Goodman set a new record by pinning his man in 37 seconds. WagstafF in his debut threw Capt. Spiwak. Grady took Silver ' s place and pinned Waters in one minute. Gerry won a decision, and Lehman and Kane concluded the rout with two more time advantages. Next came the annual meet with our ancient foes, Penn State. The Nittany Lion was undefeated, but that mat- tered not as Navy closed the season in a blaze of glory with a 32-0 victory. Martin threw their captain. Then White, Goodman, and Loughlin beat previously undefeated men. Silverstein scored a fall, and Coleman won an easy decision. Klinsman returned to the mat and won by a fall. Kane ended the meet and season by winning his bout. So ended a highly successful season. And as it closed there were many who predicted even greater things for Navy wrestling in the future.

Victorious in all encounters but the one with Yale, the tankmen finished in second place in the Eastern League. Thompson and Mustin were again the stars, Thompson finishing second in the league in scoring while Mustin was well up in the first ten. Losses through graduation will be hard to replace. Mustin, West, Atkins, and Vrooman will be missed, but Henry Ortland has always been able to turn out winners and with Ray Thompson, McCampbell, and Ashworth next year should be no exception. C. C. N.

Thompson and Mustin who took two firsts apiece and McCampbell, who won the diving, were the features of the Columbia meet. The next night Yale wrecked championship hopes as Thompson took the only two first places for Navy. The Yale team showed great strength and the defeat was no disgrace. This meet gave Yale the League title. The season closed with the Syracuse meet, a com- plete route, Navy scoring almost at will to take every first place. The Intercollegiates held for the first time at the Academy furnished thrills a plenty for all hands. Navy took two of the individual crowns.

The team lost two games out of six, but one of these was to the N. Y. A. C, a group of old time stars. The 1932 edition was strong, but Pennsylvania finally hit on a winning combination and Navy ' s first collegi- ate Water Polo defeat since 1928 resulted. The first game with C. C. N.

The Suicide Club returned to the blue side of the ledger with decisive wins over Columbia and Yale on successive evenings, to close the season. The Columbia game ended 48 to 9 and Yale went down 56-13- By virtue of the defeat by Penn, Navy lost her Water Polo title, but the season ' s record is still one to be proud of. Always Navy teams have been noted for their spirit and aggressiveness and the 1932 Water Polo Club has been no exception. Miller was third in Leagure scoring and Atkins fourth.

Denton broke the Academy record in the flying rings and later stepped out to shatter the intercollegiate mark in the same event. Curtze won eleven firsts in the horizontal bar and parallel bars.

The Light Blue were confi- dent of repeating, but Rojo Adams and Dimmie Dimitrijevic put a quietus on their hopes for 1932. The R.H.E. Grasson trophy in sabre belongs to Navy. To Hubert Pirotte, Navy ' s sabre coach, belongs much credit. The high honors of the Intercollegiates went to Yale, Three Weapon and Epee Champions. Army, Foils Champions, were second, and Navy, Sabre Champions, were third. Dimitrijevic gained third place indi- vidual honors in sabre. Adams was in the Finals but failed to place.

The dual meet season ended with a 9-8 win over Columbia. In the foils, Tilburne and Kait were outstanding during the entire season and received valuable support from Grubbs. One may expect a good chance at the Iron Man next year. Captain Van Evera and his epee team-mate, Galantin, pulled more than one meet out of the fire and aided in all six victories. Dimitrijevic and Adams put a shining crown of glory on their half and half dual meet record by taking the sabre team trophy.

Last year it was believed that no better performance could be reasonably expected, but events have shown that last year ' s routine was merely an indication of coming achievements. Consider the following: The team had an undefeated season in individual matches. The team had higher average match scores for the season than has ever before been attained by this or any other team. McDougal set a new individual shoulder to shoulder range record of 289 in the match against West Virginia.

N., officer representative and Coach Extraordinary, and Lieutenant Yeaton, U. S. M. C, assistant coach. Their rare knowledge of the psychology of riflemen and their difficulties have made the difference between a " bull " and a " nine " many a time. Hunter, the captain, has for the past four years been instrumental in establishing all the team records set during that time. As the season progressed, Navy defeated Penn State, V. M.

The 193 1 Season regularly in the indoor tank, and the facilities infinitely better than those of the old wooden shed added to the popularity of the sport throughout the long training season. This season was also the last for Old Dick Glendon. The venerable sage of the rowing profession had coached Navy crews during twenty-five seasons, including the one which produced a Navy World Champion Olympic crew. With the magnificent conclusion of the 1931 season he re- tired, revered by all, leaving the destiny of Navy rowing in the hands of Buck Walsh. The weather was fairly good during the pre-season practice, and on the best days Dick took his boys up to Round Bay on long conditioning rows. After several combinations had been tried, Shelton was settled upon as ■GIVE ' ER TEN!

Hunter, Anderson, and Hartley filled the remaining portside seats, with Gray, StefFanides, and Phillips as their counterparts on the starboard. In the Junior Varsity boat, Strean and Quirk were the nucleus, and in the Third Varsity, Macfarlane and Nelson. KaufFman stroked the 150 ' s. The first race of the season was with Columbia, up on the Harlem. The crews were on even terms during the first part of the race, but the Blue and White oarsmen were smoother and steadier, and slowly gained a lead which the Blue and Gold couldn ' t quite overcome at the last. The following week, with M. I. T. at Annapolis, the Navy oarsmen began to round into shape. The water was rough, but all the races went off on schedule. The 150 ' s rowed first, and although Sherman Clark ' s Navy crew trailed slightly during the first part of the race, their smooth, steady stroke soon brought them ahead, and at the finish they were leading by a half a length of open water. The Tech Jayvees, being practically as strong as their varsity, won their race easily, lengthening their initial lead to nearly two lengths at the last. The varsity race was a thriller. Tech got off to the better start, and, rowing a higher stroke, led at the mile. But they couldn ' t keep it up, and as they began to crack Shelton raised the beat and Navy forged steadily ahead, crossing the finish line a length and a half ahead of their opponents. Two weeks later came the Syracuse race, which was the low ebb of the season. The Orange and Black oarsmen made a clean sweep on the Severn. The following week Navy met Harvard and Penn in a three-cornered meet up on the Schuylkill. Navy, using a new stroke, showed considerable improvement, but not enough to ease out Harvard. All three crews got off to good starts on the mile-and-a-half row, but Harvard led all the way. Navy finishing a length and a half behind and Penn a poor third. Anderson [ Four HNttdred Thirty-six ] t.d I •k tkf nai As June week began and the Varsity wasengaged in preparing themselves for Poughkeepsie, the lightweights took their turn on the Schuylkill in the Henley Regatta. Then came graduation day, and the year of 1930-31 was ended for all save Old Dick and his boys. These betook themselves to Camp Ingram, up on the Hudson, and settled down to prepare for the performance which was to startle the world. Nine of the Nation ' s best crews were entered in the Poughkeepsie Regatta, the climax of the rowing season, and among these Navy was hardly a favorite. Having lost three of the shorter races earlier in the season to crews which we were now to face again, we were conceded only a chance to place fourth or fifth. But that wasn ' t the thought in the minds of the Eight as they pulled out to their stake boat to start in that memorable race. Hunter now occupied the stroke position, Schoeni, Anderson, Steffanides, Crinkley, Shelton, Jewett, and Gray comprising the rest of the crew, with Bobbie Fulton in the coxwain ' s seat. The rain, which had been threatening all day, was pouring down when the starter ' s pistol barked and the row of shells sprang into action. Washington set the pace, holding the lead for the first three miles. Here Navy raised the stroke a bit and quickly overhauled Washington. Then Cornell, defending champions and pre-race favorites, got worried and began to sprint. They closed up a bit and passed Washington, but the Navy Eight refused to yield their margin, and finished a half length of open water in the lead. Following Cornell came Washington, California, Syracuse, Penn, Columbia, Wisconsin, and M. I. T. The Navy crew had rowed a race which drew unstinted praise from the whole rowing world. In the other races, the J. V. ' s finished fifth and the Plebes fourth, but we could stand that. For the crew championship of the nation was back, for the first time since 1925, to the place where we have always felt it truly belonged. Hartley [ Four Hundred Thirty-seven ] Captain James MONCURE WITH Capt. Jerry South lost to the team for practically the entire season, Coach Finlayson started with a heavy handicap. Only three regulars were back, and prospects were none too good, but the squad dug in with a will and a scrapping aggregation resulted. Regular practice began March 4, but Assistant Co ach Clem Spring had already had the boys out for several pre-season workouts. The defense was big and heavy and always a menace to would-be goal shooters. Buck James was the defensive star but able assistance was given him by Pressy, Kirkpatrick, and Hagberg. The offense had a lot of experienced men, who although not regulars the previous year had turned in excellent work. Moncure led the attack, scoring 20 points during the season, while Castree, Elliot, O ' Neil and Bowers crashed through at needed moments. It was a well balanced team, which won five out of six starts and rolled up 76 points against 12 for the opposition. The only set- back was dealt by Maryland, Navy ' s arch enemy. Coach Finlayson ' s charges opened the season quite auspiciously as they sank the Green Terrors of Western Maryland 10-0.

To Lynn Elliott went the honor of the first goal of the season, his ice breaker coming after only fifty seconds of play. The Golden Tornado from Georgia Tech proved to be hardly more than a mild April breeze. Tech was the second victim of a rampant Navy crew of Ham ' n ' Eggers as they were swept aside 24-1. The game started as a close contest. Navy drew first blood on a high shot by O ' Neil, but the Tech crew soon tied up at one all. After two scoreless minutes the Navy avalanche was under way. When the gale cleared at the half the scoreboard read, " Navy 16, Ga. Tech, 1.

Dyson, the visitors ' goalie, played superbly to keep the Navy score as low as it was. Reorganizing their defense after the disastrous first period, the Lafayette stickmen held Navy to one lone goal, a beautiful shot by O ' Neil. Moncure ran riot with four goals, and Castree and Ferguson were second with two apiece. Brown arrived with a great record and everything pointed to a hard, close battle. Advance predictions were correct and, in one of the hardest fought games of the season, the Brown men were repulsed 12-2. The game more closely resembled football than Lacrosse, but Navy speed and strength stood out and proved to be too great an obstacle for the men of Brown. Sammy Moncure continued to lead in scoring, with four goals. Buck James again played a sterling game and looked to be one of the best defense men in the country. Lehigh, down from the mountains of Pennsylvania, looked on amazed as Sammy Moncure ran riot. Moncure on the offense and James on the defense spelled defeat for the Brown and White. The final score was 18-1. Elliott, Bowers, and West turned in able work on the offense and Pressy and Hagberg were shining lights on the defense. The teamwork, both offensively and de- fensively, was one of the high points of the season. Harvard played host to the Ham ' n ' Eggers, but the Finlayson stickmen crushed the Crimson 12 to 1. Jack Castree started the fireworks with a goal in less than a minute. The first half was hard fought, and at the end of it the score Ferguson Thompson A SPILL [ Four Hundred Forty } stood 4 to 0, all Navy. In the second period the superior condition of the Navy boys began to tell and eight more goals were driven home, while the Crimson tallied once. Harvard showed some brilliant stick work, but couldn ' t stand the fast pace set by the Blue and Gold warriors. Moncure continued to score almost at will with six tallies. Elliott and Castree kept up the good work with two apiece. The Terrapins of Maryland were too much for the Navy twelve in the annual June week encounter. For the first twenty-two minutes the game was scoreless, both sides playing carefully. The ejection of Pressy on a foul gave Maryland an extra man and they were quick to utilize their advantage. The Terrapins sank three shots in less than a minute. Another goal just before the half ended left Navy on the short end of a 4-0 count. Moncure revived Navy hopes as the second half started by slipping past Deckman to sink one. But the Terrapins had no intentions of letting up and continued to hit the net for four more markers to make the final count 8-1. This game saw Rodgers, O ' Neil, Gilbert, and Hagberg playing their last game for Navy. It was a great season, which saw Navy run wild over all teams but one. The Maryland defeat was a bitter pill, but there are other years, and other teams, and other seasons. Born Tyler [ Four Hundred Forty-one ] ;w ..i- Capt.

In five dual meets, Navy won three by decisive scores and lost only to Notre Dame and Ohio State after hard struggles. At the Penn Relays for the second consecutive year the Navy men turned in some surprisingly good performances, the sprint medley team being the outstanding Navy threat. This quartet broke the old world ' s record for the event, but was nosed out in a fas t finish by Ohio State. During the season Fraser, Underwood and Hardman bettered Academy marks. Underwood broke the shot record and then went out and bettered his own mark. Hardman missed the 880 record by tenths of a second once or twice, and rang up a mile record that should stand for some time. Hard- man ' s feat of running the mile in 4:18 marked him as one of the strong con- tenders for a place on the Olympic team in that event. Don Fraser turned in some splendid performances in the high timbers, breaking Whitey Lloyds ' old record.

All hands brought glory and renown to themselves and to the Naval Academy. The first Navy appearance came as a climax to a day of record breaking performances. The Sprint Medley Relay was the thriller of the meet. Coming from behind in the anchor lap, Hardman rushed on into the lead. In a thrilling finish that saw both teams shatter a world record, Beetham of Ohio State nosed out Hardman. Evans, Newton, MacKenzie, and Hardman composed the team. In the shuttle hurdle relay, the team made up of Newton, Cox, Kastein and Fraser finished third in the finals behind Yale and Ohio State. The final relay race saw Colgate nose out the Blue and Gold in the mile relay. The team, composed of Connolly, Coleman, Hardman, and Evans, pushed the Colgate boys all the way. On the second leg, Wally saw an Army shirt ahead; so he proceeded to move into second place, ahead of the Gray. Underwood and Connaway finished sixth in the shot and high jump. MacKenzie won both his preliminary heats, but lost in the semifinals of the 100 vard dash. Ei Kane A LONG ONE [ Four Hundred Forty-four } NAVY LEADS THE WAY OVER THE HIGH TIMBERS Mm. idhn KdGdd bnitk pdauT The performances of the Navy squad were a decided improvement over those of the year before, and promised better ones for the future. The Maryland meet was all Navy, the Old Liners only getting 25 points while the Blue and Gold rolled up 101 and gathered in eleven firsts. The team showed good balance and lookecf well in all events. Then came the Irish from South Bend. Led by Captain O ' Brien, the Notre Dame squad defeated the Blue and Gold 78-5 6 to 47-1 6. The track events proved the downfall of Navy, the Irish taking every first place. It was a fast, hard fought meet, but Notre Dame had the more outstanding performers. Underwood put over the outstanding per- formance of the day when he bettered the old Academy shot record by seven inches, his new mark being 45 feet 1 inch. Navy, 75, West Virginia, 51 tells one part of the battle between the Navy cinder men and the Mountaineer track- sters. The closeness of the scrap is not shown by the score, however. It was nip and tuck all the way until Evans, Connolly, and Musgrave took a clean sweep of the quarter. From then on it was all Navy. Don Fraser lowered his own time in the high hurdles with a fast 15.4 second win. Hardman, running the mile for the first time of the year, tied the mile record and won the 880 in almost record time. Kane and Kirn continued to take one-two in the javelin, and Underwood turned in another fine performance in the shot. In the June Week meet, the Scarlet and Gray from Ohio State again took Navy ' s measure. Led by Keller, who topped the high timbers in 14.6 seconds, the Buckeyes took the meet by a score of ' 71-2 3 to 54-1 3- As regards first places, it was even, both teams winning six with one event in a tie. The Buckeyes, however, showed greater strength in the second and third places and thus won the meet. Hardman was the Navy star as he lowered the nine-year-old mile record with the splendid time of 4 minutes 18 seconds. He also won the 880 in fast time. While the meet ended in an unsatisfactory manner, especially for a June Week meet, still it left nothing to be desired in times and close finishes. It closed a highly successful season for Earl Thompson and the Navy track team. Evans r Four Hundred Forty- five } .teis Caft. Hodgkins Thi Means Coach Mohler IP ' ASHWORTH Byng Baseball THE season of 1931 got under way onFebruary twenty-third with well over fifty men turned out. For several weeks the armory resounded to the crack of leather against wood as the boys got their batting eyes in shape and the pitchers began to whip their hurling arms into trim. With many veterans to choose from and an unexcelled coaching staff to choose them prospects were good. With such sluggers as Byng and Fitzgerald from last year ' s team and with Hodgkins and Hurley still slapping the apple in second class summer fashion our dynamite looked powerful enough. Moreoever, Coombs, Englehart, Schultz, and Daven- port looked like a fine quintet to feed the ball past the opposition. Captain Tommy Ashworth, skipper par excellence, led the team in a noble manner and the " Kid " taught them lots of baseball. Rain foiled Mohler and his Maulers in their season ' s opener against ermont. Lehigh invaded Annapolis in the next scheduled game and handed us a 6-5 defeat in twelve innings. It was tough to have to open the season with such a heart-breaking defeat. Both teams played good ball, Navy opening with a bang and four runs in the first inning, but THE 1931 SQUAD Back Row: Keen, McEachern, Pratt, Ward.

Tic End McIvER, Mgr. 1W; vsd ly ■1 id s The 193 1 Season the Brown and White slowly closed the gap and went on to win. A good crowd was on hand and from all appearances baseball was to be more popular than ever before. Next came the Quakers and by playing heads up baseball handled Navy the second straight defeat of the season by a score of 10-3- The Navy defense was quite subnormal and materially aided the sharp field- ing of the visitors in adding to the margin of victory. Wes Byng had been playing first base the first two games, Mohler wanting an extra slugger in the infield. However, with the coming of the Fordham Rams, the " Kid " shifted him back to his old berth in center field and moved Tom Hurley up to first base. In spite of the great reputation of Fordham, the new combination clicked and the " Mohler Maulers " ran riot on the bases to score a smashing victory, 12-8. As usual. Navy scored heartily in the inital round, and held on to the lead throughout. Wes Byng garnered the first homer of the season to aid in the victory. ¥AVV Fitzgerald Coombs TOMMY SOCKS ONE OUT For a change, it failed to rain for either exhibition game and local fans had a wonderful opportunity to see the Washington Senators and the Baltimore Orioles perform. Both won by a score of 4-1. Dave Davenport created quite a favorable impression on the big leaguers by his fine twirling in both contests. Harvard, Barry Wood, and fine baseball proved too great a combination to overcome and the Crimson won 4-3 in a close, hard fought game. Wood and Company, by a bit of master playing, scored their tying and winning runs in the eighth frame. Lafayette arrived, but departed on the short end of a 7-2 score as a result of a third inning batting spree which netted 6 runs. Jupiter Pluvius scored his second victory as rain washed out the Villanova contest but the fine weather aided the Washington and Lee Generals to sink us with a three run salvo in the ninth. The weather did something, and Navy rolled up two big victories over Temple and Duke. Temple was scuttled 16-4, and Duke succumbed 13-8. Dave Davenport looked good in both games, going the route gainst Temple and relieving Coombs against Duke. Dave again came to the fore as he stopped up the Richmond bats while Fitzgerald slapped out two home runs. The Irish of Notre Dame added another Navy scalp to their athletic record belt as the Mohlermen bowed 5-2 in a close game. The game was played at South Bend and due to the poor field was a bit slow. Navy ' s big first inning failed to dampen the Irish spirit, and Notre Dame closed with a rush to win in the final frames. Mohler used a sub and then a sub for the sub in the seventh, and two runs were scored causing William and Mary to go down ill defeat 6-4. A drizzling rain slowed the game up, but the closeness of the score gave all hands a fine afternoon of thrills. The Western Maryland Terrors proved to be an easy mark. When the track meet was over the score board looked like the results of a football game. 32-5 was the verdict as Navy rolled up the largest score of the season. Probably the most colorful game of the season was the one with Hosei University of Japan. The Japanese had a Davenport i [ Four Hundred Forty-eight ] FITZ CONCLUDES AN EASY JAUNT AROUND THE BASES The clever team. Davenport and Suzuki engaged in a pitchers ' battle but Dave weakened in the final two frames, speed and spectacular fielding of the little Nipponese were largely responsible for their 9-4 win. Gettysburg was next and by virtue of possessing a great pitcher was slated for an easy win. All the big league scouts saw, however, was the " Kid ' s Klouters " rapping the ball all over the lot to pound out a 16-10 win. What was to be a pitchers ' duel turned out to be a free hitting affair. Lefty Coombs, besides pitching a fine game, came to bat in the fifth with the bases loaded and drove out a homer to center field. A ninth inning rally by the Old Liners of Maryland gave them a win over the hard-scrapping Navy nine. The score was knotted until the last two innings, when Maryland opened up to win 6-2. A big Navy rally in the ninth closed a seeminglv overwhelming lead by the Mt. St. Marys nine, but it was all in vain since the Mountaineers duplicated the feat in the twelfth and the game closed 12-7 on the red side of the ledger. The day of days arrived — Saturday of June Week. Wesley Fesler, the great Ohioan, led his Buckeyes from Ohio State to Annapolis, and Navy fell 12-7. Hodgkins, 1932 captain, led the team in batting with a .447. Hurley, catcher and first sacker was second with a .435- Dave Davenport, although a youngster and a pitcher, cracked out the astounding percentage of .375- Coombs and Davenport shared the hurling honors, assisted by Joe Thompson, Egon Englehardt and Schultz. The big explos- ives were fired by Fitzgerald and Byng, who smashed out some powerful home runs. These two played great baseball in the outer garden between turns at bat. Tommy Ashworth was almost always reliable to get on base. His uncanny eye for judging whether a pitch was a ball or a strike gave him many a free pass. The season ' s record was not so good from the standpoint of won and lost, the Mohlermen winning but 8 games and losing 9. However, the boys had a fine spirit and worked together quite well. Much more is expected in coming seasons. [ Four Hundred Forty-nine ] Capt. Johnson Robertson Chew Coach Gaudet Tennis THE 1931 tennis season was the best in some years, with nine wins and only two defeats. Four games were rained out. Among these was the first scheduled meet, that with Columbia. We dropped the first meet played to Yale, won from Hampden-Sidney, and lost to Harvard. From then on, our record was unblemished, and we won the remaining eight meets handily. Yale took their meet 7 to 2. Although Johnson and Loughlin extended their respective opponents, Yale won 5 of the 6 single matches and 2 of the 3 doubles matches. Hampden-Sidney proved a setup, Thomas defeating Robertson for the Virginians ' only tally. The meet went off in quick time, as not a single match went to three sets. Then Harvard came to administer our second defeat of the season. Loughlin won his singles bout, and he and Johnson downed their doubles opponents. Harvard won the other matches. The Washington and Lee game was rained out, and then we played Franklin and Marshall on water-soaked courts, taking their measure 8 to 1, no match going beyond 2 sets. William and Mary met the same fate, losing 8 to l,althoughsomeof the matches were harder fought than in the preceding meet.

They bowed 7 to 2, winning one singles and one doubles match. Penn State was crushed 8 to 1 in the next meet. We won all but one singles match, which Gold yielded after forcing into three sets. Rain canceled the Washington and Jefferson meet, and Lafayette came next, in one of the best contests of the season. They won half the singles matches, and forced two of the doubles matches into extra sets, though they lost all three. Maryland proved an easier mark than had been expected, winning only one match of the nine. Temple was the only team that was completely shut out. The Phila- delphians were completely outclassed, only two of the matches being ex- tended to a third set. The Penn meet was a fitting climax to the season. Navy won from the Quakers for the first time in thirteen years. Each team took three of the singles matches, but Navy won all of the doubles. No victory could have brought more satisfaction to Coach Gaudet and his players than did this one, and it was a fine ending of a fine season. Knock, Mgr. Gold LOUGHLIN 1 THE COURTS SEE ACTION Capt. Woodward At 600 Yards Rifle Hain FOR a number of years Navy Rifle teams have been just about the cream of their kind. However, the N. R. A. would not sponsor an intercol- legiate match this year, and this made the going a little more difficult than in the past. For no college teams appeared on our schedule, and we had to shoot only against teams whose principal occupation is shooting. Even against them we held our own acfmirably, winning the first four matches and losing only the final meet with the D. C. National Guard. Our victims included the Maryland National Guard, the 107th and the 71st Regiments of the New York National Guard, and our most feared opponents, the Quantico Marines. In the first meet against the Maryland guardsmen. Navy won by a score of 2258 to 1835, Robbins of Navy taking individual honors with a 236. Eight Navy men finished higher than the best of the soldiers, and we took first in all four events. We next disposed of the 107th Regiment by a score of 2285 to 2267. Navy gained their edge in the slow firing at 200 and 600 yards, the guards, men leading by three points in the rapid firing at 200 and 300 yards. Hain i H1-. lyjl t l Ai) Standing: Lt.

Navy outstripped their opponents throughout the season in the 600 yards slow fire. This was due, in no small measure, to Lieutenant Wolleson ' s uncanny accuracy in figuring out the wind at each instant. We next met the 71st Regiment at Peekskill, N. Y., and carried off a 2272 to 2166 victory. Back to Dahlgren Hall came the trophy " Little David, " who has stood behind the firing line at this annual match since 1906. Harper and McDougal, with 234 ' s, tied for first honors for the match. Then came a triangular meet with the Quantico Marines and the Phila- delphia Marine Barracks. The scores were: Navy, 2291, Quantico, 2263, and Marine Barracks, 2257. Harper, with a 238, topped all others, some of whom held the rank of " Distinguished Marksman, " the highest rifle award given. Navy ' s scores were all well rounded. The unfortunate finish of the season was the 2311 to 2291 defeat at the hands of the D. C. National Guard. This was the first defeat for Navy in rifle for two years. But it failed to dim the excellence of the work which had been done by the team throughout the season.

Navy engineers, in conjunction with the Martin Company ' s engineers, have for a long time been study- ing design and construction of large flying boats, until this type of aircraft is now perfected to a point where it is capable of taking its rightful place among other successful types of aircraft. Its refinement of hull lines, eliminating heavy spray in rough water take-offs and taxiing; its new deep Vee bottom, permitting safe and easy landings on rough wate r without shock ; and its great reserve of power, giv- ing excellent take-off and flying characteristics when heavily loaded, attest to the advancement made in the design of this type of aircraft, and to the ability of the Martin Company, through exhaustive engineering and research methods, to produce quality aircraft.

Navy for ob- servation work with the Battle and Scouting Fleets, an airplane must have speed, climb and maneuverability well beyond the severest requirements of commercial flying. Depend- ability and stamina are as basically necessary as engine and empennage. Flights that start on the catapult and end in the hoist sling are convincing tests of quality in design and structure. Because each of the series of new " Corsair " designs has passed all of these tests by generous margins, the Vought " Corsair " has long been the observation plane used on the Navy battleships and scout cruisers.

IIN lOyZ Charles Duryea ' s gasoline automobile, America ' s first, chugged up the street. From this queer looking horseless buggy of 1892 there has de- veloped an industry with 1930 sales of over 2 billion. The General American Tank Car Corporation has been an indispensable aid to the develop- ment of the automotive industry. Its vast fleet of tank cars has made possible the economical distribution of petroleum products, essential to the widespread use of the automobile. IIN lyUU Count Ferdinand Von Zeppelin ' s strange cigar-shaped contraption rose into the air. From it developed the modem dirigible . . . and the largest airship ever built . . . the Akron. Helium fills the huge bag of the Akron . . . the gas being transported in a General American con- structed car. Before this car was built, helium could only be carried at great cost in small cylinders . . . and the helium car today has be- come an important factor in the economical operation of American dirigibles. 11 IzIO The mechanical silk worm had been struggling for years, getting nowhere. Yet, in 1926, when 62,573,000 pounds of rayon were produced, artificial silk was rapidly becoming as common as cotton. Essential to rayon manufacture is caustic soda, which must be of low iron content. To avoid iron contamination, such as frequently resulted when caustic soda was shipped in bulk. General American built a nickel-lined car which de- livers liquid caustic soda in a pure condition. This invention alone saves rayon producers hun- dreds of thousands of dollars annually. 11 iyZ3 Mechanical refrigerators came into general use. Today such refrigerators are common. These modem ice chests use many refrigerants . . . ammonia, iso-hutane, methyl chloride, sulfur diox- ide, dichlorodi-fluoro meth ane. To meet the demands of this industry. General American constructed special high-pressure tank cars which transport these refrigerants. In this way. General American tank cars have aided in the development of another great industry, have helped bring mechanical refrigeration to the American home. IVH I 7 3 A Who knows what the great discovery will be? Yet, possibly one will be made ... as far- reaching in its consequences as many of the major discoveries of the past thirty years. The great dis- covery of 1932 may create a demand for some new railroad car. And, when the new car is needed, you can be sure that General American will build it.
