: : „ =. NATHANIEL MINTER DIAL " Sun " Washington, D. C. FOUR years ago Minter ' s school annual predicted that the W. B. A. would be putting on special trains to accom- modate his many admirers after his en- trance into the Academy. The Defense Highway Commission did them one bet- ter by putting a new shoulder on the road. But, all for naught, for Wash- ington ' s fairest femmes all faded from the picture one October afternoon of Plebe year, when he met the Ultimate Woman. Since then, his steadfastness in that regard, as well as in other things, would make a gyro stabilizer look like an autumn leaf in a wind tunnel. His friends have all searched futilely under his even regularities for at least the semblance of a minor vice, but even Europe, with its dry martinis and Tom Collins, found him adhering to " cafe con leche. " Neighbors have long since given up trying to bum skags from him. There is one reward, at least, for abstinence. Lacrosse is his sport, and he plays a man ' s game well. • ••••• Lacrosse; N 2 P.O. CHARLES KEENE, JR. " Charlie " " Chuck " " Bud " Washington, D. C. Charlie ' s ambition to sail the high seas has always been paramount. Long before that fateful day late in June of ' 28, when the first step toward attaining his aim was taken, he could tell you more about the Academy than most graduates. Four years, two European cruises with long stretches at sea, a near-drowning in the Blue Grotto, and three years on the sub-squad haven ' t dampened his ardor. His love of the Service and his untiring energy will carry him to the top. Gay moods, coupled with his almost natural tendency to break into song, make him, at times, a most desirable wife. At others — oh, well, who wants to study anyway. ' His substitutes for boning are: sleep, chess, backgammon, and, since youngster year, yearning for a West Coast cruise, which brings us to that always difficult subject of the fairer sex. Suffice it to say that all those who have been fortunate enough to be the recipients of some of of his prose compositions, masterpieces of literature, know his ability in this art.

' § I ' k 1 HERBERT McCLELLAN COLEMAN " Herb " " Bijf " Huntington, West Virginia A MOUNTAINEER by birth and a sailor by love of adventure, the Academy gave Herb his first taste of the briny •deep. Since Plebe summer, Neptune has laid his course to carry him clear of all rocks and shoals, finding in him the true sailor. He is most prominent for his ability to maintain a high standing in the class. Secondary to this, but by no means a negligible quantity, is his batting average for dragging. Boxing, lacrosse and foot- ball have all made their contributions in producing a model Academy product. As an officer, an unlimited future awaits him, for he has mastered many of the necessary qualities, and there remains only experience to complete the finishing touch. Two years in college sent him to us a polished gentleman, placing him in that position toward which we all strive. Fol- lowing him closely in his career are his informality and ready friendliness, which serve as a reminder of his native haunts. With a grin he is ready for anything from giving consolation to pleasure. Boxing (NA) ; Lucky Company Representative; mittee; G.P.O.

He came down from the hills with a year ' s experi- ence at Virginia Tech, and a big broad smile. He told us of the first, but the other spoke for itself. Due to a slight error in judgment on his first math exam, he didn ' t see his native heath again until youngster Septem- ber leave. But except for that ancient and honorable enemy, the Math Department, academics bothered him no more than the usual inconveniences. He has no vices. That is, he doesn ' t sing. He whistles a bit off key and studies Dago aloud, but he has a steady foot on the rail and an excellent judgment con- cerning the better things in life. There- fore, could he not be forgiven a multi- tude of sins. ' He will give you his shirt and lend you his pay; he will drag your girl ' s roommate in time of need and she will turn out to be the best-looking girl at the hop. The femmes can ' t keep their fingers out of his blond curly hair and he dislikes to say " no " to a sweet young thing. In spite of it, though, he is still happy and free. • •••••• 1 P.O.

" Thus our first intro- duction to the rebel-born, mammy-reared, and plantation-bred John L. The story is of no importance — but he ' s got all the ideas in his head that the quotation im- plies, such as Legree-esquc overseers and rolling fields of cotton and pickaninnies playing around the barns and the coach rolling up to the door with the " marstuh back from the woe. " Our John is a real Southern gentleman. But he ' s a tea houn ' . Doggone his soul, he is. With his other Tarheel com- panions in crime, he makes the rounds of the Annapolitan parlors of a Sunday afternoon. Thus has he earned himself entree into all the back parlors and salons which, to the common chaff standing on the outside looking in, have assumed the proportions of a mystic shrine. He dabbles here and there in athletics. His chief claim to fame is as a swimmer, but he has, at various times, touched lightly, as becomes a Southerner, football, lacrosse, water polo, and the faintest sug- gestion of soccer. ; " ■ U Swimming; 2 P.

GEORGE WASHINGTON PRESSEY " Butch " " Tug " Hampton, Virginia HAVING lived within sight of Hampton Roads for the greater part of his life, " Butch " has felt the call of the sea for years. Not only that, but his Euro- pean jaunt aboard the tanker has given him a deep-rooted desire to go down to the sea in " battle wagons. " The only reasons for hesitating to liken George to that master of his art, Romeo, are that the homes of today are sadly lack- ing in balconies and that we who know him believe that in him we have one who has " outmastered the master. " His ability to make and hold friends is not limited to the fairer sex, either. That carrot-topped man adds to any gathering with his wit, stories, and general ability for making fun, especially after chow. Just ask the " General Board. " " Butch " has spent his afternoons in much and varied style. He has derived the pleasures of life from atop the " win- dow seat " in the winter, and from the " ham-and-egger " squad in the spring. It is a very excellent system of training for June Week ; at least, it seems to have brought the desired results. • •••••• I!- £ Two Hundred Twenty-six }
