That the story may never grow dim but may ever be a living memory this. The Lucky Bag of 1935, has been created by Midshipmen, who with many pictures and a few words, have here tried to set down, as Mid- shipmen want it told, the picture of our four years in Old Bancroft and TheYard. D O ao o L 4 y CO 4-J Ci) O yard ddministration departments biographies history activities athletics contacts IN M€MOIVIAM m 4 Malcolm MacArthur John Allen Smith Charles Max Metcalf FARRAGUT FIELD . • • THOUGH the massive sranite buildings of the Academy are a strong reminder of the grim power of modern fighting ships, the Yard has about it an atmosphere which reflects an older navy. Farragut Field, Porter Road, Dewey Basin, McDonough, Samson, and Dahlgren Halls honor men whose names are symbolic of the best traditions of the service since the days of the Revolution. The Tripoli Monument is a tribute to men who, in ships of the timber of the old Constitution and Constellation, courageously executed the " Millions for defense but not one cent for tribute, " policy of a young nation. The Mexican Monument reflects the work of the Navy during a period of expansion that gave us the great Southwest. The bronze cannon, ornamented with the Finest of craftsmanship, are trophies of that period. The station ship Reina Mercedes and the guns and torpedoes before the armory are relics of our part in the melancholy task of smashing the last of a once great Hispanic empire. A tablet marking the sight of old Fort Severn speaks of the gaiety of long remembered hops, and markers here and there among the grass bearing the inscriptions New Quarters and Old Cadet Quarters are fond reminders to men not yet retired. Luce and Isherwood are names associated with the technical development of more recent times, and the halls that bear their names house the appurtenances of modern pro- fessional training. Thus all through the Yard are found side by side the material means of present day training and the finest influences of the past, combined for the moulding of the skill, character and integrity of future makers of naval tradition.

" His first contact with this is made here at the Naval Academy, where the linkage extends from the Commander-in- Chief to the Regiment of Midshipmen, hiere, in this Administration Section, we present those who have been responsible for our education and train- ing, and who have guided us in the essentials of leadership and character so necessary for a successful Naval career. They have given us the foundation, with which experience afloat may aid us to become a more intimate part, an integral link, in the " chain of command " of some unit, small or large, of the United States Navy.

" Strict discipline, sense of responsibility, obedience to orders, and cooperation, are the essential fundamentals that this depart- ment seeks to instill in the embryo Ensign. It has performed its duty if it has " sown the character " necessary for the foundation of the finished Naval officer. " THIRD ROW— Newman, Paro, Humphreys, Cloughley, Hutch- inson, Peterson.

With them we Find the interminable little red book — the weekly publications on Saturday, and the age old expression " any questions? — draw slips. " It has, however, all been with a purpose — that purpose being a groundwork of educational fundamentals. Experience afloat remains to build the finished naval officer. hHere, we have been super- vised in our acquisition of knowledge. In the fleet there will be no departments as we know them at the Naval Academy. There we must teach ourselves and be the final arbiters as to what we shall learn, and how well we shall learn it. Thus, though the departments have provided us with a means to gain our ends, the strife is not over — the real test is yet to come, and with it the complete fulfillment of the motto of the Naval Academy — " from knowledge, seapower. " " Now the uniform is rainclothes and over- shoes,- all books and drawing instruments will be carried to the P-work. " Whose turn is it to buy the wheel barrow? " The clock is ten minutes slow, " and from the dark blue horde behind red azimuth tables, issues a long, low, semi-musical sound, commonly known as a " cat call. ' " At sea, you see four black lights in a vertical rov ; what is it? " The " Fleet " pamphlet was so deep, that, as far as the first class is concerned, it is still " Confidential! " Remember that never at any time will any problem be correct without the correct GCT and date! hHow often have you found your ship in Kansas because of a bum GCT? 64 Ji Seamanship and Navigation Navigation does not become impossible until Second Class Year, and Seamanship with its right hand assistant, " The Fleet, " follows close behind. Navigation has often been deemed an " inexact science by the best of authorities, and after a year with Bowditch, Ageton, Tides and Currents, we are inclined to believe that the authorities are right. Seamanship, with Knight ' s and The Fleet as the vanguard, has won its share of the battle, while we, as the vanquished, go down to the sea in ships, and try to remember what we have learned.

" Gentlemen, you know the regulations, and we feel it our duty. " Who but a Second Classman can know the innermost sensations in the heart of a torpedo or the beauty of a built-up gun? And who but a First Classman can feei the joy and thrill of working a sheet ten, or a splash diagram? Thus it is, that wherever we go we ' ll carry those famous phrases: " Sketch and describe, " " Those not having a torpedo, draw one, " and " No one will leave the examination until the end of the period. " 66 Ord nance an d G unnery As a nightmare to disturb our rest, the Department of Ordnance and Gunnery has been unsurpassed. From Plebe Year with the service rifle to First Class Year with ballistics and fire control, Ordnance has held us in its power. During Second Class Year the masters dug into their bag of tricks and brought forth the torpedo, an instrument most adept at baffling the Midshipman. In spite of the complexities of Ordnance, the department has succeeded in impressing us with its professional importance, and has sufficiently taught us the essentials of a subject so vital to the strength of our Navy.

Curtis turbine for Electric Drive and name 132 parts. " (The tree looked like a class muster that week!) The fact that Congress granted us B.S. degrees, we believe, was due to the news that the schedule was altered to three hour steam drills, and a degree in metallurgy in two months! Second Class Summer had its high points too. Hlow about our submarine dive and trip to Spar- rows point on a " tin can? " Hot exam dope! " There will be ' bull ' and there will be probs. 68 Marine Engineering A ship is a powerhouse in itself, a mighty mass of machinery, and the operation of such an unit requires well-trained men, thoroughly equipped with an extensive but practical engineering knowledge. To this end, the department of Marine Engineering has instructed us in mechanical drawing, basic mechanisms, thermodynamics, boilers, tur- bines, naval construction, and in many other phases of engineering. They have not made us expert engineers in any particular subject, but they have given us the practical education necessary to efficiently operate and maintain the engineering plants of our ships.

" " The proof of this statement is beyond the scope of this text and is left to the student as an exercise. " " You ' ll get some credit for that! " " Gentlemen, a hat contains three red balls and two white balls. What is the prob- ability that I will draw a black one? " Find- ing the stress, strains and compressions in a bridge is better than a crossword puzzle anytime! " A bridge isn ' t a bridge without all of its constants! " We " buried math " in a new and novel way, towing all past and present math books to the last class at the end of a line! Little did we realize that this was just the end of the beginning! ' Them was the d aze! 70 Department of Mathematics A salvo IS fired; a hit is made; and another tribute is given to the cause of mathematics. The calculation of ordnance problems is but one of the many applications of mathematics met during the career of a Naval Officer. Mathematics and Navigation are synonymous; ship handling and maneuvers are made easier with mathematics, and the Engineer and Naval Constructor would be lost without it. Thus we see, that although mathematics may be an enigma to the Midshipman, it is indispensable to the Officer.

" Juice is easy,- all you have to know is that E=IR (Except in AC!) the rest is simply and purely evident! ' In problem 8 part (s), change 0.0000006 to read 0.00000057. " " You have five more minutes! " What first classman can forget the thrill experienced at the hum of a synchron- ous motor? " The picture works the prob. " A term of " Radio.. " and still ours won ' t work! 72 Department of Electrical Engineering Just as sailing vessels have disappeared from the Navy, so are steam vessels yielding a place to electrically driven ships. A theoretical oundation received here at the Academy, polished by practical ex- perience afloat, gives the Naval Officer the technical knowledge sufficient to cope with the rapid strides made by electricity aboard ship, and to keep pace with the modern methods of radio communica- tion in the fleet.

The examination will cover everything and you may prepare for it in your rooms. What price eggs! Who is the marginal farmer? And say, just what is the difference between the king and the crown, between supply and demand, price and value? The lecture Tuesday will be on the Rise of Japan. All " JG ' s " and Midshipmen will attend. We conclude that the basic law for all governments is, after all, to have some- one to hold the sack, or " ministerial respon- sibility. 74 E conomi cs and Government As " breathers " in an otherwise technical curriculum, the Department ot Economics and Government has given us interesting courses in the governments of our own and foreign nations, and in the field of Eco- nomics. The department has not quite qualified us to become political scientists or economic specialists, but it has given us a better under- standing of the workings of governmental organizations, and of the fundamental principles of economics.

FHow many of us actually read all of those bool s we reported on Second Class Summer? Library periods with their vast research and " copious reading " for our theses marked the end of our " Bull " career and researches (we hope!). 76 Department of English and History A Naval Officer must not only be an officer, but also a gentleman. To be cultivated and conversant withi tfie topics cfiosen by tfie society he frequents, a knowledge of fiistory, literature, and of his own nation ' s policies at home and abroad is necessary. The Navy needs men who can express themselves clearly and concisely, and who can meet with ease any situation which might arise. It is to these ends that the instruction of the Department of English and History has aimed. BACK ROW— Eller, Darden, Kenndday, A. B. Cook, Pease, Doty, McCrdcl en.

French, Spanish, German, and Itdlidn drz all alike (to us) — all " Dago. " Gone? Yes. Forgotten? ? 78 Department of Languages A Naval Officer ' s ability to make a boarding call on a foreign ship without the aid of an interpreter, to order " ham and eggs in any oreign port, and to Platter a foreign official in his own language, are results accomplished by the Department of Languages. It is an old saying that, " a common language, not a touch of misery, makes the whole world km, " and after three years with this department, we find that we have received a little of both.

I just have to turn in. Exams are coming up, and you know how my eyes are! 80 Department of Hygiene The attitude of the Department of hHysiene has an unbounded appeal for the Midshipman. The principles of hygiene, physiology, and first aid are given in a series of well illustrated lectures, culminated by one solitary examination. Would that all departments had this point of view. To a few, the department has been a haven of rest from the perils of ordnance P-works; to all of us it has been the family doctor and the little medicine chest containing the cures for all our ills.

The journey is over for Thirty-five yet it is just about to begin. What has Thirty-five been? More important, what will it be? The whole is made of its parts,- therein is furnished a clue to the answer, and to this end you will find the succeeding pages tending more toward characterization than to narrative biography. The man is presented in a fourfold way. You will see his formal appearance first: as when just meeting him — first impression, you know. Then, there is the brief list of activities and honors — interest may here be aroused. Next, within the limits of a photograph, you may know him informally at work, happily — at his favorite hobby, here or elsewhere. Finally, there is the pen sketch, and you are friends, for the sketch was written by a friend — the one who knows him best, his roommate. True, it is the best side you will see predominating, but what else is worth living in this, our book? h ere then is the class of Thirty-five, be it for closer acquaintance, or for memory ' s realms in futureyears. ! 1 St. BATT.

TOM didn ' t come for romance and adventure, he left tiidt, nor was it tfie glitter of gold braid, instead it offered education, a vast new field of experience. It was curiously interesting. Just as easily as he made his way in, he has made his way to the top. hHis earnest endeavor was not directed toward " stars " nor " stripes " but the self satisfaction in succeeding. All quite serious, but he plays too, (but not so earnestly as he does leisurely). Due to his size he confines his athletics to sports requiring skill and speed, such as wrest- ling and golf.

DICK ' S greatest failing was his knack of un- wittingly sliding into compromising situa- tions and invariably coming out on the pay- ing side. For the most part he finds life extremely pleasant. hHis success was due to his constant use of chilled orange juice as an eye opener, and Ovaltine as a night cap. A few chins on the tran- som helped too! The injection of knowledge into the main condenser, beneath his sunburn thatch, was always steady, with efficiency a maximum, and no radiation losses. Like most seafaring men, he cherishes a fond ambition of someday going back to the soil, buying a little island somewhere out in Puget Sound and settling down to become monarch of all he surveys.

WIThI the tradition of a long line of Naval officers behind him, John naturally chose to follow in his famous forefathers foot- steps. Accordingly, he entered the Service through the medium of the Naval Academy. hHe entered directly from high school, and has given a good account of himself academically. hHe has several hobbies, notably playing strong man, and building model airplanes, both of which he does with equal facility. At times brain storms run rampant with his nature and we find him in the throes of a description of a new machine that he has just mentally developed which would, no doubt, re- volutionize the world.

With practically no trouble at all Di has successfully conquered the academics with losing any time in acquiring many friends. In spare moments, he can be heard propounding some philosophy of life, redolent with cynicism and fatalistic views, interspersed with appropriate gestures and blunt, to the point, but most de- scriptive metaphors and similes.

From his frequent attendance at hops, one would think him a snake, but a smiling photograph on his locker door reveals a someone, somewhere.

RED entered the Academy, the first of his line to choose a sea-faring career. From the first he skirmished with the Academic Board to whom he always gave an advantage to make each term ' s work more interesting. Red has a great apti- tude for sports, and he was resourceful enough to engage in many, but inconsistent enough to be proficient in none. A home in Philadelphia en- abled Red to benefit from the association of many friends and rela tives. It was a familiar scene at any athletic event to see him surrounded by hosts of visitors. In dragging, he was guided by the prin- ciple that variety never permits boredom. Red ' s hobby is being a life guard. Every summer, he takes a turn at guarding the fair and saving the weak on some ocean shore. ALBERT HERITAGE BOWKER " Axel " " Bowk " " Red " Philadelphia, Pa. 152 ( Tennis 4, 3.

About noon, wearying of love and water, they entered a fashionable res- taurant, lunch in one hand, shoes and girls in the other, and proceeded gaily to eat.

Abe is thoroughly inactive as far as drags are concerned, but has made up for his social laxness by his willingness to try anything in the line of sports.

Not given to dragging much, but always getting over and having a big time when he does. hHis hobbies dre junk and athletics, happily combined with making far- fetched suppositions — to say nothing of taking radios apart and not being able to put them to- gether again. If Ben sets out to sea. North Carolina will have lost a stalwart offspring, essentially a ladies man, and the Asiatic Station will have claimed a true son. BENJAMIN ERNEST ADAMS, JR.

Early during his Naval Academy career, Lou won him- self a host of friends, partly through participation in several sports, but mainly through his winning personality.

To further his education, and to satisfy a desire for travel, he enlisted in the Service at San Diego, and, after completing a course in Radio School and a few months of sea duty, he entered the Naval Academy Preparatory Class at Norfolk. During his Plebe Year, Stan ' s inclination led him to the crew shed, but soon academics demanded this time.

At the Academy, Art with his guitar, was always doing the enter- taining.

Since childhood the ambition to become a naval officer has been domi- nant, hie has lived on naval stations all of his life and is quite determined to stay in the Navy the rest of his life. Zerk is nonchalant under all cir- cumstances; the only thing that causes him any ex- citement is the fairer sex, but of late his attitude in this respect has shown a marked change. A lover of the poetic art, he is endowed with a practical as well as an imaginative mind. For recreation he enjoys tennis, learned in sunny California.

CHARLIE came from the banks of the muddy Missouri to dwell in the dense fog that hovers over the mouth of the Severn, and he seems to like it. Sports of all kinds appeal to him, but academics limited his time somewhat; so most of his endeavors were utilized in contests between classes and companies. His chief indoor sport is turning a bull session into an argument over some unimportant point, the more unimport- ant the better. He satisfied his flair for business by becoming the Advertising Manager of Reef Points.

Chuck is the sort who creates friendships that endure. POPULAR, well-informed, and standing high in his class, his intellectual interests run along cultural rather than purely academic lines. Almost any evening study period he may be found in his room perusing the latest Book-of-the-Month, and he has excellent taste in music, preferring the classics, particularly in instrumental form, to all the cheaper types of this art. Since Plebe Year he has entertained a hearty dislike for both gym and pool; far more enjoyable to him are such ourdoor sports as tennis and golf.

Motorcycling in Annapolis is taboo, but he has found other ab- sorbing interests to take up his liberty time. Being a somewhat better than average student, his after- noons have been free.

SOME secluded hamlet nestled among the coal mines of good old Pennsylvania gave us Butch. It " did itself rather proud " thereby, and so did its native son. Since Plebe Summer these four years have seen his six feet four inches capering above basketball court and track alike, with several N-stars for his pains. In other fields, he has shown a marked deference towards movies, magazines, food, and sleep, especially the latter. In fact, most study hours have found him tucked away long before the prescribed hour.

One is his curly hair, another is his long legs, and the third is his dancing. Even the duty officers have noticed his dancing. After trying several sports, Amos finally found that his long legs would serve him best at fencing. The curly hair only gets him into trouble. Amos would naturally rather concentrate on one femme, but the rest of them won ' t keep their fingers out of his wavy locks. Consequently, his attentions are di- verted. Now as to his vices; there are none — that is, he only tries to tap dance, has a natural tendency to burst into song, and has a passion for arguing.

As Plebe Year offered few obstacles in the way of academ- ics, he had ample time for lacrosse, boxing, and sub-squad.Thesesports, however, weren ' t destined to occupy all his time, for during Youngster and Second Class Year Teaford won the distinction for dragging 4.0 ' s and becoming entrenched as a charter member in the Orde r of Carvel Charlies. Smooth in dragging, smooth in the classroom, while most of us wondered about the next 2.5, Teaford was taking things in a most unconcerned manner.

Coming from every state and territory, filled with varied emotions, but bound by a desire to become a part of the first line of defense, we started our new life. Daily drills of infantry, rifle range, athletics, seamanship and gym- nasium introduced us to the life in the Navy. Lazy evenings spent writing letters in our new found slang, visiting our classmates, occasionally varied by Bull lectures or that unforgetable blending of discords, mass singing, brought us in closer contact with each other and the Navy, old and new. This summer training period seemed too good to last. The first rumblings of the approaching storm soon came. 326 Near the end of August, two battleships an- chored in the bay foretold the end of our reign. The first days of Academic Year were like days spent in a wildly spinning airplane. Unintelligible text books, faltering recitations, foggy study hours, and the old Plebe rates of " bracing up " were a painful reality,- by comparison the afternoon ath- letics were as refreshing as the country club evenings had been during the summer. Shining out of the fog was the football season, crowned by that long awaited victory over Army. That foot- ball ' s sailing between the goalposts had an added value to US; we forgot all Plebe rates during De- cember and again enjoyed a life of comparative ease, which was followed by — Christmas leave. I I Fourth Class Third and Fourth Battalions For ten days we enjoyed the combined pleasures of being naval heroes and carefree civilians. It was hard to return to the " grey walls " with five months of Plebe Year ahead. Upon our return, the upper- classmen and the Academic Department showed us our true position in life; again we experienced what ' brace up, Mister " and " R. hi. I. P. " meant, hdundredth night, five months revenge in one hour, came giving us our chance to have some fun. Ath- letic events and evening entertainments helped pass the months and occasionally gave us an oppor- tunity to drag, to prove that we were ready to carry on the Navy ' s social traditions. Plebe Year was dying fast. Soon the last examination was finished and the slipstick and steamkit had been put away for the summer. Glamorous June Week with its crowds, color, and leisure was our last week of Plebe Year. The June Ball, our first hop, marked the dawning of a new era. After a perfect evening we returned to the hall to have the upperclassmen pay their last respects to us as Plebes. Now our Plebe Year is over. It was hard at times but certainly gave us invaluable training and experience. It welded a group of strangers into a unified organization. After our cruise and summer leave we will return wearing a Youngster stripe, the second step to- ward the realization of our ambition. 327 LOST BY THE WAYSIDE Bdbb, J. H. Baker, L. D. Barrett, O. T.

" Here you are folks, with a fast moving tale, chronologically told, of four long years in historical old Annapolis. Read fast, think slowly, and you will have no trouble following this rapid-fire drama in four acts, many scenes, with an all-star cast, and featuring your favorite. We start in June ' 31 — back in the days v hen sweeping floors was only the secondary function of a broom, hair- brushes had handles, youngsters were rosy cheeked, 1 c never stowed their own laundry, there were no semi-anns, no parades till June Week, and plebes were lucky if they only had three beds to make up on Satnites. All right; turn these pages and let ' s go with the first act. CO CO u O u » y: ' ' i «Au, m PHEW ' • ' ON TME WAY ■SQUEEZE EM OUT ' Signing cards at tables in l ront of the Comm ' s Off. Sick Bay — reading crazy colored numerals. Passing phys-exam — in! Taking the oath in Mem Hall. Assigned to companies. Staring at our bare rooms — little comfort there. Thinking how tough 2 c looked in their unpressed, patched works. Not knowing what to do when told to " carry on! Marking gear with smelly ink. Getting it all over everything. Trying to remove stains from hands — no success. Putting on that first suit of works. Seeing ourselves in mirrors — undecided whether to laugh or cry. Farragut Field and infantry. Helluva time learning diff erence between right and left face. Stepping on painted marks. Wondering if it ever turned cool in Annapolis. Suffering, swooning, sweltering, sweating, smelling, swearing. r 33d; WELL SAIL THE STORMY SEA ' ;UST BEFORE THE BATTLE Taking strength tests on idiotic machines. Learning we were deficient in the Idtissimus dorsi and wondering what such a thing was. Gazing at the cool pool and wishing we were in it. Suddenly find ourselves there — on the sub squad. Attempting to climb a rope like a monkey — failing — the weak squad. Back to our rooms and finding it was unanimous as we were on the extra duty squad. Stoop falls, kneebends, doubletiming on the terrace. Rowing cutters on a windless Severn with the mercury around 100. Getting blistered hands and sunburned shoulders. Going to the rifle range. Getting sore shoulders from a heartless Springfield. Shooting at the spotters instead of the bull. Assigned to the butts. Paste! Thinking we ' d resign. Then the first spoon! Did it make a guy feel good! 337 SUNDAY AFTERNOON Back to the Hall at 12:25, brmation at 12:30. Rushms into showers, shinins shoes, running to formation, sliding into ranks to beat the late bell. Then finding we ' d forgotten our neckerchief — more extra duty. Attending exec lectures and hearing the story of the v ar in the animal kingdom and the bird who didn ' t get the vord. Learning songs. Being victims of a " papping pool held by mercenary 2 c. Buying gouges from 2 c. Making the 4 July liberty in white works. Attending the Panelope.

Chocolate milk tasting like soap. Taking part in Pink Belly raids or ex- terminating this society as Black Bottoms. Turning on the fire hose at night. Standing at attention in the wee small hours for that deed. Attending boxing meets. Thinking we were kings. Having our thoughts rudely in- terrupted by a returning Regiment. Grabbed by 1 c. Winding vies, stowing lockers, sitting on infinity, assuming the angle. Learning hundreds of things. Puzzling over screwy questions. Almost starving that first meal. Learning to eat, talk, think, and pass food at the same time. Classes — math, horrors! Being on the first weekly tree and thinking we were bilging out. Studying, boning, cramming. Running after phone booths. 339 ■ n ! J PICK EM UP CENTER FORWARD- FIRST BLUES fei-ir " :-:r L •r i JJ ' wJ ' aW POSTAL TELECPAPH .

Easter and that egg hunt — upsetting lockers, wrecking rooms, enjoying it. White cap covers with cold showers and stinging hairbrushes. Visitors swinging canes, carrying cameras, lining the walks, snapping our pic- tures, staring at us like we were animals in a zoo. Drinking vinegar cock- tails and cruise Java.

It is for this very reason that we of er these pages They give you an insight on our non- scholastic activities so that you may better be able to understand how we have spent the past four years. Each club and activity has a definite place in the scheme of things at the Academy, and in all they offer an answer to almost every desire for recreation, music, art, entertainment, and practical application of theory learned in the classroom. Lights, action, camera, — our Activities!! Productions 381 o U U Z5 Each year the N.

" A superb climax to the consistent good work of the Musical Clubs throughout the year. Musical talent alone was not responsible for the success of the show; there was something else — the persistent and cap- able work of " Smitty, " the director, aided by Lieutenant Beecher and Professor Crosley. And last, but far from least, the. willingness of the entire cast to cooperate by giving freely of their recreation hours for rehearsals. Top; R. H. Smith Middle: W.G.Beecher, Lt. (jg.) Bottom: Asst.

Ten on Friday ■ nights after chow. The connoisseurs of dance music have to be content with huddling about their radios, and comparing Ray Noble s use of the violin to the effects obtained by h al Kemp with a couple of trumpets. For them the Ten is the incarnation of jazz; for most of us they re a darn good band that adds a bit of color to that relieved end-of-the-week feeling. The Ten (or eleven, or fourteen, depending on who ' s unsat) manage to get in two hours practice a week, some of that time ' coming from study hour. Really not much time for " Chuck " and " Johnny " to whip their outfit into shape, but when Friday night, or the Musical Clubs Show, rolls around, we ' re always treated with real music — sweet and hot. w Langston, Leader k ' , Third Rovj: Burl hdrt, Meelcs.

Come show-time, though, and you will find the Orchestra down there in the pit furnishing some mighty fine music while the dramatic boys (and girls) take their bows.

The only ■instrument they use is the piano, but that is enough, for the " basso profundos " and the first tenors manage to make themselves heard. They boast of no Carusos in their midst, but every one of them gets a great deal of genuine pleasure from their weekly get togethers. Their repertoire is varied, and under Professor Crosley ' s guidance Smitty manages to get some real re- sults. They get their opportun- ity to show what they have ac- complished when the Musical Clubs Show rolls around; in fact, as you may wel I remember, they played a very important part in making that production a success.

A. 10 finishes its rythmic orchestrations and Dave and his boys render some of their soft soothing tunes. Kinda makes you think of all the pleasant moments you have had here and there. Every member of the Club is a versa- tile performer too; and if you could have dropped in at a few of their rehearsals, you would have heard several instruments being played by them besides their chosen one. Most of their efforts have been for their own pleasure inas- much as they play for the Regi- ment only a few times during the year, but every one of their " after-chow " practices has been a load of fun for them.

(wiKow: I 388 Mdsqueraders Gotten, President On a rather hasty decision the layman might con- clude that it is far fetched to imagine that dramatic ability is requisite to the finished naval officer. Well, if in your consideration you confine your thoughts to the duty of navigating ships , and destroying enemy forces, you are quite correct in mak- ing such a conclusion, but if you turn your thoughts to ama- teur productions at the Acade- my, you v ill find that ability not only desirable but plenti- fully supplied. In those pro- ductions it is even necessary for Midshipmen to play the feminine roles, since the Ex- ecutive Department distinctly frovv ns on the idea of import- ing talent from h ood or Fair- mont. The Masqueraders pro- duction each year is the big opportunity for the " show- boys " to do their bit and this year they did exceptionally well in their presentation of The Man on Stilts.

The M an on Stilts When the Masqueraders chose " The Man on Stilts " for their annual production, they chose wisely, for no play could be more appropriate for a satire on hero worship as it exists today. It strikes pointedly with a satiric finger at the synthetic and inflated stuff of which our over-night heroes and front-page favorites are made. It is not difficult to appreciate the ridicule that the author meant for those cheap publicity hunters so prevalent in the form of tree-sitters, marathon dancers, oyster-eaters, peanut-rollers, and other crackbrains. The play itself depicted the adventures of a green farm boy, Godfrey Block (A. M. Purdy), who came to the city of San Francisco and obtained a job with a construction company. The head of the company absconded with the available funds and left the employees with nothing but wages due and construction equipment that included a steam roller. Not receiving wages all the employees took some part of the equipment; the steam roller falling to Godfrey. While driving his new possession home he encountered a drunk newspaper reporter named McGann (R. hi. Smith) who conceived the idea of Godfrey ' s making a cross-country trip on a steam roller. The 390 Beecher, Officer Representative The Man on Stilts necessary Financial backing was obtained through a pompous pohtician, Senator Thomas Tarbotton (A. M. Nibbs) who hoped to bolster up a dubious platform by the insertion of a " better roads " plank. The unsuspecting youth found himself an instantaneous hero, his steam roller journey was likened to the march of a crusader — a conqueror! Upon his successful arrival in New York he was immediately besieged by a host of admirers; radio announcers, press agents, reporters, movie magnates, and vaudeville agents. A romantic air was lent by the presence of Georgia Van Allen (J. hi. Wesson) a St. Louis maiden, who stole the innocent farmer boy ' s heart while he was passing through her home town on his steel chariot. And the plot was complicated even more by the advances of Honey Callahan (R. O. hiale, Jr.) the red headed neice of Senator Tarbotton. It was at this juncture that Joe McGann appeared once more and threatened to disclose the entire hoax if he were not included among the fortunate. The threat caused Godfrey to realize that his fame was a counterfeit one and to revolt by disclosing the fact to the public over the 391 Pease, Coach radio. The dismay of his employer, the consternation of his sweetheart and her family, and the chagrin of his followers — all intoxicated by his notoriety — caused some highly amusing compli- cations. Senator Tarbotton ' s platform was reduced to a heap of kindling wood, Georgia Van- Allen ' s aspirations and pride were ruined, and Joe McGann ' s bottle was empty. Then, just when everything seemed lost, fickle public opinion shifted again and made a hero out of the ex-hero who had debunked hero worship. This latest turn of events proved too much for our modest hero and he succumbed to the demands of his adoring public. So, in the end, we found Godfrey a hero, Georgia happy, the Senator assured of election by his assumption of the responsibility for Godfrey ' s disclosure, and Joe McGann evidently sober. The play itself was an excellent one with frequent opportunity for clever acting,- opportunities that were not passed over by the cast, and our congratulations are extended to President Gotten, Director Miller, Professor Pease, and Lieut. Beecher for the fine work they accomplished. 392 Property Gang Hess, Chairman ' Listen, Frank Hess, I don ' t mind you and your gang trying to change me into a de- cent looking girl for this show, but this red paint on my toe nails is carrying things too far. " Ouch, watch where you stick those pins! " Custodians and providers of everything from the local-color scenery to the villain ' s mustache, Frank and his boys have only to make sure that everything is on hand at the right time and in the right place. Easy job! Just ask them! If the show runs smoothly and everything seems perfectly realistic, just try to look backstage where the property boys are struggling. Little of the glory of success is theirs, but every successful performance means that grand feeling of a job well done. Standing: Cool , Lyster, Davies, Madison.

Unlike the Masqueraders and the Musical Club Show which it serves so well, its membership is permanent. It is a small group knit together by a spirit of cooperation and comradeship that is unexcelled. The work of the gang consists of provid- ing, erecting, shifting, and altering the scenery that is so essential to a good show. They are called upon for off- stage noises, curtain pulls, emergency make-up repairs, and a myriad of other duties which really call for talent. The old stage over there at Mahan is anything but beauti- ful and believe you us it is a man-sized job to make it look like a New York penthouse! " h eads up, Ned, I dropped a hammer!

Maybe our course in Economics was of 395 Juice Gang Usually when the lights fail anywhere within a radius of Five miles, the blame is immediately pinned on our Juice Gang. You see they have a habit of connecting up all sorts of circuits, but luckily all their practices lead up to the fine work they do on the Ring Dance lighting scheme and the novel electric signs they pro- duce for the Masqueraders, Na vy Relief, a ndMusica I Shows. They do en joy their work though and the latest rumor has it that they are to have a training table for the men who operate the switchboards for the perform- ances. Charlie Foust claims that the best men he has work- ing with him are usually " un- sat " in Juice.

Due to the large amounts of money involved, such an organization must be placed on a very efficient basis. The time that must be given to the planning of the book approximates two and one-half years. These pages show the number of people involved in the big- gest single undertaking of the Class, but these pages cannot give the story of the work that the Staff has done in order that the Class might have a book of which it could be proud. In order that our motto " to make the Class remember " might be fulfilled, the book was designed by one of US; a Midshipman would know what Mid- shipmen wanted. The entire book was put together by the Staff in the various capaci- ties shown . . . they had to learn the mean- ings of terms used by printers and engravers, they had to know how copy was arranged for the presses, they had to, in short, become specialists, each one in his particular line. Each member of the Staff is a specialist, and this book is evidence of their specialization. Harden Associate Editor Finnigan T. A.

Then came the return home, the ar- rival at Norfolk, and those critical two days when we were faced with either revising our budget or cutting the size of the book. We revised the budget. Then October found us off leave and on the last lap. Pictures were cut, titles were mounted, copy was written, pages were pasted, and finally the time arrived when the press O.K. s started off. The last one marked the breaking of the tape and the completion of the book as you see it today. Sneeringer J. H.

Perhaps the worst aspect of that job was the fact that prac- tically all of that amount was spent before all the money came in, hence days of doubt and worry ensued, because there was no way of actually knowing if the amounts figured in the budget would actually tally with the bills as they came in. N. R. A. Codes figured prominently and forced the printing expenses up considerably. Only constant checking and figuring could help, and the Business Staff did just that. Two- thirds of the income for the book came from circulation, or the sale of the book itself. To gain this, the Circulation Staff held meetings, designed a Christmas gift card, made a room to room canvass, wrote to prep schools and Yard personnel. They further believed that the Lucky Bag should be advertised within the Regiment. The Log aided greatly in this campaign, for hardly two weeks passed without a Lucky Bag advertisement appearing in the Regiment s weekly magazine, praising some particular I J I Sweeney Van Ness Circulation Assistants Philip Thomas Circulation Assistants U Bu siness Staff Beacham Assistant to the Business Manager 402 I Veth Circulation Manaser Eichmann Advertising Manager Lucky Bds 1935 Shellworth Advertising Assistant 1 1 I Weldon O ' Handley Advertising Assistants phase of the book. A harder task was that of the Advertising Staff who first designed and produced a twelve page brochure about the advertising value of the Lucky Bag that brought forth favorable comment and, best of all, contracts for space from many business firms. Mailing fourteen hundred letters on the Cruise opened an advertising campaign that kept up until March fifteenth when the goal was reached and eight thousand one hundred dollars was credited to the Advertising Staff. In addition, this Staff made suggestions to the advertisers, laid out pages, and took pictures for the " ads. " It was their belief that they could make the Advertising in the book of real value to the advertisers, and they worked with this idea in mind. As a further aid in the raising of the necessary funds the Circu- lation Staff took over the sale of Cruise pictures which brought excellent returns. Supervising all these activities were the Business Manager and his associates who closed the contracts and coordinated with the Editorial Staff in the expenditures, finally spending the twenty-four thousand.

But, like everything else, it ' s a case of getting back as much as you put out — even if most of the re- ward is merely the satisfaction of accomplishment. Because of the limitations on spare moments a surprising number of people work on the Board and Staff. There are Plebes who act as printers ' devils in the Cut Ex- change, Youngsters who brow- beat Plebes for humor on Friday nights.

The result is a weekly publication which " gives all the dope, " which covers all Academy sports, news of the world and of the Navy, and endeavors in a small way to satisfy the innate crav- ings of a Midshipman ' s soul for something at which to laugh, satirizing himself and his condi- tion, with now and then a taunt or so (veiled, of course!) for the various departments.

It was immediately found that the talent didn ' t really need encouraging, for the response was very great, and from that day on all the would-b e Middy writers have been doing their bit to make the Trident Magazine a top notch publication. They have succeeded too, for some very excellent articles have been produced. In addition to the Trident itself, the Society has found time to undertake some other literary attempts among which have been, " The Book of Navy Songs " and " Anchors Aweigh, " a book of poems written by Midship- men. Now they 6re all set to publish a Trident Memory Book; something different. Well we are right behind them in anything they try, just so long as they steer clear of the confidential publications — that art is to be left to the Ordnance Department.

Reef Points is the intro- ductory Regimental production which a Plebe re- ceives and reads, and it, of necessity, has to be a composition of force, insight, accuracy and simplicity. It also furnishes an interesting link be- tween the Midshipmen and their friends. Historical sketch- es and pictures of the Yard, athletic records, songs and yells, activities, a summary of the Fleet, a review of Acad- emy traditions, rates, and slang, and a mass of pertinent facts, along with charts wherein one keeps records of his weekly grades make this a compendium of inestimable value to the Midshipman. The advice of Lt. Swanston has done much to make the 1934-35 edition the best Reef Points to date, but even greater strides in the fu- ture should pyramid this pres- ent success.

A committee to select the ring that will distinguish us as a class for the rest of our careers was formed of the class president, a member elected from each company, and a mem- ber elected at large. By the end of Youngster Year work on the design had begun, and Second Class Summer saw it completed. Beside the usual inclusion of class crest on one side and Academy crest on the other, the ring bears official eagles with right turned heads, an officer ' s cap device, small dol- phin designs, a line bordering the edges and relieved by square knots, and a fish scale design on the back. The class voted on the selection of a jeweler during Second Class Year, and June Week the new rings blossomed forth. Bright, Chairman I Standing: Karaberis, Riera, Nash, Gotten, Steinmetz.

Well will we remember our own — that striking color scheme in black and silver; a departure from the usual blue and gold, but It certainly beautified old Luce hiall. And those multi- colored rings which served as meeting places, the popular compact favors, and the tra- ditional replica of the class ring in which WE stood while ShHE put the coveted band of gold on our finger, while a certain Executive Or- der was repeatedly violated that night! The occasion itself would be quite an affair, but it took Johnny Cline and the Ring Dance Committee to make it a " perfect hop! ' Standing; Seymour, Lofland.

Designs were submitted by various firms and the committee under the leadership of Paul Bright proceeded to weed out the least appealing. By the mid- dle of March the field of pos- sible choice was narrowed down to three. The motif se- lected was based on the Old Navy. The background is an old-fashioned achor on which is superimposed a full-rigged sailing ship and a wheel flanked by two swords. Theirs was a very important job and we know that they did it well.

That ' s the one meal that gives the commissary officers an opportunity to yell " belly-robbers " at some of their most persistent detractors of the many meals of the year. Not that " Chuck " Langston and the committee were particularly guilty in this respect, because they weren t, but judging from the meal that they arranged for our class sup- per, they could competently criticize any meal! They ar- ranged everything too, even down to the decorations for the mess-hall. Several " un- official " class suppers that were attempted after each " Sep leave " were failures. Why, it is hard to say, but our guess would be that they lacked the careful planning that made the " official " attempt a real success. " Study? After a meal like we had tonight!

Christmas Card Committee I Bemis, Chdirman When Eddie Bemis called the Christmas Card Commit- tee tosether right after the Christmas of 1933 he told them, " We want a card for next Christmas that will be both beautiful and distinc- tive of the Regiment — and we ' re going to have it! " What ' s more they got it! The card they produced after long weeks of work and preparation was cer- tainly one of which we could be proud. It is beautiful in that it has a full color picture of one of the new cruisers making a power run, and it is distinctive in showinga viewof theChapel altar in " Christmas full-dress. " Designing the card itself was a pleasure, the real work was sacrificing those many needed study hours to arrange the finan- cial details and the distribution. How many study hours were disturbed by, " All those de- siring additional Christmas cards report to room — . " Remember? Standing: Langston, Stevens, Sneeringer, Guest.

Nice — but suppose we take a look behind the scenes and watch the Pep Committee boys labor to dope out all those designs, order the colored cards, make up the dope cards and see that information is circulated so everyone gets it. Any wonder why you always see Les Rosenberg and his help- ers heading for the field at the half so they can see the results of their " brain children? " And how in the world would we have ever gotten programs for the " drag, " if we hadn ' t been abel to yell, " Hey, Les,orHey, Mac, how about a program?

To the Reception Committee is intrusted the reception and entertainment of all visiting athletic teams; the guests of the Regi- ment. It is a large, busy and essential organization, and one of the few that has an all-year job. The lew vivid impressions that an infrequent visitor to the Academy obtains are often more lasting than wz imagine Being the official hosts of the Regiment is, therefore, a very important job. It is their duty to make sure that these first impressions are the best pos- sible: Contacts with these visitors afford an opportunity to get the other fellow ' s point of view; to see how he likes it on the outside looking in. Then too, Reception Commit- tee members are old friends of the " Excused from drill " lists. Top Row: Neve, Kolb, Gumz, Willman. Third Row: Brown, A. W.

These are but a few of the many critical situations that Chapel ushers must face and bring to a happy termination on Sunday morn- ings; so if you feel unable to cope with any or all of these emergencies, you had just as well banish any idea you may have had of becoming one of the Regimental Diplomatic Corps.

The Quarterdeck Society is the youngest organization of the Academy, but during its four short years of life it has grown to a position of impor- tance. It offers an opportunity to every Midshipman to pre- pare and deliver impromptu speeches. An opportunity that fills a large gap that has long ex- isted in the training of men whose tour of duty will often require public speaking. The Quarterdeck Society meets every Thursday evening in Me- morial hHall and the time from after supper until study hour is utilized for their talks and dis- cussions. The study hour bugle interrupts, and, after taking a vote, the President closes with, " It seems that the ayes have it. The meeting is adjourned.

" Probably every Midshipman at the United States Naval Academy recog- nizes these v ords from the Mission of the Naval Academy, without realizing that during his hours of recreation he is attaining an end as truly important as knowledge gained in the classroom. For many of the facts learned will soon be forgotten, but benefits derived from improvement in physical con- dition are carried throughout life,- can never be forgotten or thrown off. The proportion of men participating in a recognized sport at the Academy is very high. For every team Navy puts on the field, there are three or four more composed of men who derive just as much good as the first team — and they work as hard. The going is tough near the top. This accounts for perhaps half of the regiment of Midshipmen. What about the others? They are the men who, realizing their physical limitations, engage in some sport which they happen to fancy at the moment. In Navy lingo, they " take a workout. " Every afternoon the year around one may see them playing on Farragut Field or in the gym, passing a football, playing catch, running, or lifting weights. No less to these does this section of the book apply. For these men are unsung, unknown, those who would like to, but who cannot, participate. One of the prides of the regiment concerns the standard of sportsmanship maintained by the athletic teams. At no college in the country is that standard exceeded, excepting, perhaps, West Point. All types and sizes of schools visit Annapolis to compete with the Midshipmen, and all carry away with them a respect for their opponents. By this we do not mean that Navy men are little tin gods — in a tough game, almost anything that occurs to a player may be tried. But that occurs fewer times than usual. Navy is justly famous for its hard, clean, fighting teams. " Doc " Snyder ' Iodine, iodine, epsom salts and pills We ' ve sot a doctor and we don ' t pay bills Rah! Rah! Rah! Rah! Doc! Doc! Doc!

Thomas Hamilton, and a change from the Notre Dame system to the style oF attack hHamilton felt best f-|tted to the material and practice time available, made the 1934 season the most successful in years. . . . When Navy started the William and Mary game, they looked fast and smart, and played heads-up football. Borries stood out, scoring a touchdown on the first offensive play of the season; five minutes later, the team had another one. Penalties cut down chances for scores in the second half, and allowed William and Mary to score for themselves. Navy — 20, William and Mary — 7. 430 Football 1934 Action During Notre Dame Game, Played in Cleveland. Score Navy 10, Notre Dame o. The wet field of Griffith Stadium had no effect on ■ Navy. After Clark had gained 26 yards by punting, Borries, Clark and Pratt carried the ball over. Vir- ginia looked better after the next kick-off, but a costly fumble recovered by Burns wasconverted intoanother six points, a pass to Mini providing the means. Another fumble by Virginia on the 50 yard line gave Navy its third chance, and Borries weaved through a big hole and past the safety man. Cutter made it three straight placements. Johnson and Berger scored after a Cava- 431 ANOTHER CONVERSION Borries Dornin Cutter lier interception. Navy — 21, Virsinia — 6. And then Navy showed and made jud icious use of a weapon which has proved very valuable in the past, but which had been in discard with Navy teams since ' 35 has been at the Academy, the field soal. In the Maryland same Slade Cutter showed how effective his toe could be. Early in the first quarter, after Borries and Mini had taken the ball to the 15-yard line, Slade dropped back, booted the leather, and scored three points. Later in the quarter Borries went through a hole Mini and Cutter had opened for him, evaded the safety man, scored. Cutter converted. . . . The last march, of 82 yards, Clark, Borries, Pratt — down to the 35-yard line, and then a pass to Bob Mandelkorn. Maryland then opened up with a passing attack which almost threw the stands into a panic, but was held to two touchdowns. One conversion ended the game at Navy — 16, Maryland — 13. . . . The Columbia Lion looked at the rampant Navy Goat and thought, " What manner of animal is this? " Columbia scored first, with appalling ease, but not to be denied, on the next kick-off Navy did exactly the same thing, marching from their 33 to our goal line in just eight plays. Passes to King and Dornin accounted for the longest 432 VNtGINIA FACES NAVY H. Lee Clark Lambert gains and then Borries carried the ball over. The kick failed. The second touchdown was a 34-yard run by the elusive Borries. Finally there was the Borries to Pratt pass, sixteen yards by Borries, and Bill Clark ' s drive over. Score, Navy — 18, Columbia — 7. . . . The second game away, with Pennsylvania, found rain again, but as before on a wet field. Navy seemed to be particularly at home, and downed Penn, 17-0. Near the end of the first period Slade Cutter dropped back and used his toe again. The ball went between the goal posts from the 25-yard line, and at an angle. Just after the second quarter began Clark started from his own 20 and galloped 39 yards before being brought down. Some running plays, and then Tommy King heaved a left-handed pass to Dornin, advancing the ball 20 yards to the 3. Clark scored on a line buck. In the next half Clark pulled down a Quaker pass on their 46, and Navy pushed down to the 3-yard line again. Penn held three times, but Borries passed to Pratt on fourth down to get six more points. . . . Washington and Baltimore papers seemed to think that Washington and Lee, after their close battle with Princeton, would be able to break Navy ' s streak, but the team proved them quite wrong. Four touch- 433 HE GOT II BARABAS GAINS FIVE YARDS (Wide Wo Whitmyre Cole Vogel downs and two conversions made the Final score 26-0. Navy opened drives in the First period, but these ere thrown back twice before a successful offensive was started from the W. and L. 35-yard line. A forvv ard- lateral, Clark to Mini to Borries, gave Navy 2 yards. Borries to Pratt picked up 5, King added five more, and then another later, Pratt to Borries, gave the Blue and Gold their first score of the game. Bull hobbled on the field and added the extra point. Nine plays later Navy scored again. King ran 15 yards, Clark heaved a 30-yard pass to Borries, who kept going to the enemy 20. Borries again carried the ball over. In the last period Navy scored twice more. A pass to Schecter accounted for one of them, and Ned Thomas, supported by the second team, went over for the other. . . . And then the Irish! Navy went into the Notre Dame game very much the underdog. But that fact didn ' t bother them in the least. The statistics will show that the mid-westerners gained much more ground than the Middies, that they were on the verge of scoring early in the first period, and that they were continually threatening, but that the fellows from down on the Severn v ould never let them get entirely out of control. Slade 434 FIRST DOWN. TEN TO GO Schmidt Dye Mandelkorn Cutter ' s toe gave Navy three points early in the game, which grew to astounding pro- portions as the game progressed. Navy, play- ing against a much heavier line, held on the 3-yard line after Notre Dame ' s passes and power plays had made a touchdown look certain. Then, near the end of the quarter. Burns blocked a Shakespeare punt and Navy pushed up into position for Cutter to place kick; the Sailors defended those points until the last quarter, when Borries inter- cepted a pass on his 5-yard line and ran back to the 39 to take Navy out of another dangerous spot. After exchanges of punts the Buzzer knocked off 27-yards, but fumbled when hit on the 14. Clark intercepted another one shortly, though, and ran 35-ydrds to the 7, and two plays later Borries passed to Dornin to score. Notre Dame ran the kick-off back to a near touchdown, and scored by passing on the next play, but it was much too late. . . . And then the game which cost Navy a perfect season. Weinstock and his mates from Pittsburgh managed to score five times to the Tars once, and take us out of the unbeaten class, but even in so doing, Borries played a game to match them. After two touchdowns for Pitt things looked rather black for Navy, but Borries and .

The second half, how- ever, found Pitt rolhng up three touchdowns to take the game, 31-7. . . . And, finally, we come to the game which meant more than any other — the Army game. Army ' s Captain, Stancook, won the toss and elected to kick-off. Clifford booted the ball, which went into Bill Clark ' s hands, and he ran back 13 yards to the 22. Borries tried one for only three yards before he took the ball on an end sweep and, after a beautiful block by King, circled the end and started down the field, being brought down 21 yards from the line of scrimmage, the longest and most spectacular run of the game. This put the ball near the midway marker, augering well for the Navy team. Clark punted to Grove, and when Army could not gain, they punted. Borries picked up seven yards in two plays, but lost eight on a high lateral pass which got over his outstretched fingertips, so Clark punted to the 15. Army ran one play and punted, and Borries carried back from the 48 to the 36, but Na vy was unable to gain at this point. Clark then got off a punt that eventually meant scoring position for the Blue and Gold. Bill headed the ball 436 • 4 Larsen Zdbriskie Fellows for the coffin corner, and Dusty Dornin pushed it out on the 1-ydrd hne, forcing Army to kick immediately. Borries received the punt and raced back and forth across the field, but was brought down on the 33. Two through the line by Buster picked up four yards, and then a basketball pass to Pratt sent him to the 16-yard stripe. Borries just missed a first down two plays later, and didn ' t quite make it on third, so Navy decided that the game could and would be won by a field goal. Navy took time out, and made careful preparations for wiping off the bail and Slade Cutter ' s shoe, and then, from the 20-yard line. Bill Clark holding the ball, Slade sent it squarely between the uprights, accomplishing what had seemed almost impossible. Navy — 3, Army — 0. And that completed the scoring for the afternoon. Not that there weren ' t plenty of thrilling moments the rest of the game. Two fumbles by Navy, the second being recovered by Army gave the ball to the Kaydets on the 34 near the end of the second quarter. Army tried to run the ball for a first down, and Stancock picked up eight on second down, was stopped for no gain on third, and ANOTHER ONE 437 NAVY 3 0--3 ARMY 0--0 m tpTOfiSi ZS ' PUBLIC { LEDGER AUTO NEWS e -jfnuT K kwim;. i«OK»iai3i a. i» SOUTH PLACES FIVE ON A.

The half ended soon after. . . . Cutter kicked off to start the second half, but neither team could gain con- sistently. A quick kick by Simons sent the ball to the Navy 15 before Borries could pick it up and return it 12 yards. When Clark punted Army brought the ball to midfield, but King intercepted a pass on the 35. Navy knocked off a first down, and then Simons intercepted Borries ' pass as the quarter ended. . . . Army got to Navy ' s 25, but again a pass was intercepted, this time by Clark. After two plays Clark dropped back and punted 68 yards, over the safety man ' s head, and put the ball deep in Army territory. But on Bill ' s next punt a bad pass from center delayed the punt, and it was blocked by Beall, bouncing off toward the Navy goal. Shuler picked up the ball and started down the field, but Borries saved the day by cutting him off and tackling him in a manner that left no doubt he had been stopped. After exchanges of punts Grohs fumbled Clark ' s kick and Tommy King recovered on Army ' s 13, but the game ended before the Middies could take the ball over. . . .

Thirteen years is a long time to wait for a victory, but when it comes it is just that much sweeter. Navy — ThIREE, Army — SWABO ! ! And so ended the year of competition of 1934, with Navy victor over Army in five sports. Five clean, decisive victories in Track, Lacrosse, Baseball, Basketball, and Football. But the most important, and the most desired, was gained in football. . . . When the regiment returned to Annapolis early the next morning most of the town was up to give them a welcome, but when the team returned that Sunday afternoon there was real rejoicing. The team rode in to the yard on a fire-engine followed by the regiment, on foot. And then each and every man on the team lined up and gave the victory bell, which had hung silent for so long until that day, three sturdy blows while the regiment looked on and cheered.

U., and one by our old rivals, the Kaydets. Against those losses, however, Johnny Wilson s proteges won thirteen games from stiff opposition. The season started off with a win over Baltimore University with Dornin and Borries, as expected be- forehand, proving a mighty combination, and scoring 28 out of a total of 53 points, which also amounted to six more than the visitors total. . . . The next game, against V. M. I., found Navy emerging victorious with an even larger margin. 442 Basketball 1935 m • 1 1 • m -•• • 1 f 1 : n m -- JHIW MSH r " " f wfim- s. la fi| - s w 1% 1 H I p . tit I Dusty Dornin Flips Another The varsity performed so well that the second and third teams all had chances at the V.

Navy got off to a good start and ran the score up to 21-9 before the half ended. When Columbia came back on the floor the game became exciting because the New Yorkers made 11 points before Navy dropped one in the basket. That was enough to get back into stride, though, and the game ended with a 33-24, Navy favor, score. . . . The thirteenth consecutive J 443 Dornin Badger Mdndelkorn victory for the quintet was chalked up in the fourth start of the present season against Georgetown, 36-25. The game was much hke the Columbia game in that Navy held a substantial lead at the half and then the visitors came back in the second half to almost pull up to Borries and his mates before Navy once more got underway. Borries dropped in eight buckets and four fouls to score 20 points. . . . North Carolina snapped the winning streak by taking a 30-19 game from a Navy team that seemed to have gone into a slump. The visitors were able to control the center tap, and the forwards got ten points each. A rally near the end of the game gave Navy rooters hope, but Aitken scored twice to erase the threat. . . . Then the five took the state of Pennsylvania in tow. Traveling to Philadelphia they defeated Penn 27-22, and the next week-end took Pittsburgh over in an extremely tight and thrilling game, defeating Maryland in the meantime, 43-36. The Panther second team was started, and Navy took a 7-2 lead before the varsity was put on the floor. Then both teams went at equal speed, with the score standing 19-10 at the end of the half. Pitt then sank three goals and two fouls to bring the score to 19-18. Ruge dropped 444 •BIG CROWDS Fellows Decker Whitmyre in a foul, and Ferguson, of Pitt, tied tfie score at 20 all. Hugfies scored anotfier and Pitt was afiead. Then Ruge and Dornin each got a double-decker and that ' s the way it stood at the final whistle. . . . After taking Virginia over in good style the N. Y. U. quintet invaded the armory court and walked off the victors, 46-36. For three quarters Dornin pushed the ball in from almost any spot on the floor, as Navy ' s defense held them away from the basket, but finally the visitors got the range with longs, and took over the lead with frequent shots that went through. . . . The West Virginia game on the following Wednesday was rather slow compared with the previous game, but things were pretty even through the first three quarters. Navy left the floor at the half with a one point lead, but as the second half wore on Dornin and Captain Buzz Borries carried the team on to win, 32-21. . . . Penn State, next on the list, had beaten Army a short time previous, and wished to take both the Service Academies, but they were denied. Neither team scored for six minutes, but Dornin started things with a field goal, and Ruge, Fellows, and Borries helped bring the total to 12 while State was scoring but two foul shots. Things were even to the end STRETCH! 445 ALL MINEI King Bdyless Ruge ST PASSiNr t of the half then, which ended 20-9. A succession of deadly long shots made the stands a little nervous near the end of the game, but Navy vv as able to keep enough lead to come out ahead, 33-27. . . . The home season was ended by the Army game on March first, and not in a very pleasant manner. Captain Borries watched the game from the bench, wrapped in a blanket, running a fever. The Kaydets got first blood as Dewalt sank his first of five field goals, but Shamer and Ruge put Navy in the lead, 4-2. Stancook got a long, and Meyer, Dewalt s running mate at the forward positions, put in two goals, and the score, after Dornin ' s foul, was 10-5. The Blue pulled up and lead 12-11 at the half. Again Navy had trouble getting started in the second half, and Army had seven points before Shamer and Dornin got going to bring it to 22-22. It was at this point that Army went on a scoring spree that carried them over the top, stopping all Navy threats, and holding a 36-26 advantage as the game ended. . . . Before the team put away their gear for another year, with Borries once more in the running. Navy took over Duke, 44-38, and the next night, had no trouble in trouncing William and Mary. 446 b a s e D d b Cornell Vermont Univ. of Virginia Lafayette Gettysburg Temple Georgetown Univ. of Maryland Univ. of Richmond Wasfiington and Lee Penn.

First Row: Sexton, Gadrow, Knapper, Daunis, Kossler, Cassidy, Van Arsdale, Spain, Smith (Manager). V. Navy got away to a slow start in its 1934 baseball endeavors, but gained headway as the season pro- gressed. The opening game with Cornell saw both teams parading around Lawrence Field, Admiral Hart tossing out the First ball, and a shut-out, Cornell on top. Griff Sexton turned in the first win when he gave only four hits to Vermont the next week, and did even better against Virginia when he distributed only two, but " Lefty " Rogers was credited with a 2-0 win. Lafayette, Gettysburg, and Temple all took Navy ' s measure. McGowan pitched his first game 448 J against Lafayette, and held the opposition in check for six innings, but the final score was 6-2. Davis attempted to break Navy ' s losing streak by taking the pitching assignment, but Gettysburg was too much for him. Temple gave up only three hits to take the game, 5-1, and then Navy took the measure of George- town. Three errors, Spain ' s double, and a fielders choice gave Navy three runs in the eighth, and en- abled a win to be chalked up. . . . Maryland and Richmond University were also put on the red side of the ledger, and then Navy defeated Washington and Lee, and Penn State. The latter game went eleven innings, with Sexton outpitching Parks of State. Navy ' s defense was impenetrable in this game, and, combined with Sexton ' s pitching was enough to give the Tars a 4-3 win. . . . North Carolina went home with another one under their belt, 4-1, but Navy won the next two. William and Mary boosted our 449 Knapper Gadrow Borries 1 average by dropping one, 7-5, and Mount Saint Mary ' s went down in defeat, 6-3. Navy turned in some nice ball to win,- three double plays — Knapper to Kossler to Cap- tain Daunis — helped Davis out of the pinches and kept the situation well under control. . . . The season wound up with the Army game. Despite a slight handicap of rain which fell intermittently during the game Navy turned in a perfect day in the field. Knapper singled in the first, was out at second on Gadrow ' s fielder ' s choice. Kossler hit to right, and when Williams juggled the ball Gadrow went to third, Kossler to second. Army ' s shortstop let Daunis ' hit through him, scoring both runners. . . . Army scored in the second on a pass to Grohs and Legg s double, and in the fifth on hHaug ' s double, a fielder ' s choice, and Morris ' single. ... In Navy ' s half of the fifth Van Arsdall singled, was scarificed to second, but tagged at third on McGowan ' s fielder ' s choice. Knapper hit to right, and both scored on Army errors.

The Red and Blue of Pennsylvania were swamped in the opener of the lacrosse season, 13-1, Navy rolling up 8 points in a 12 2 minute period in the third quarter, and the next week-end journeyed to Princeton to bring home a 2-2 tie. The outstanding feature of this game as the work of the rival goalies, Wright of Navy, Britten of Princeton. The Tigers had the edge during the first half. Navy forcing play in the second to tie up the score. A ten minute play off period failed to break the deadlock. . . . Penn State next fell, 1 3-3. Schacht opened the scoring 8 minutes ll 452 J after the start, Condon and Ward followins the lead to boost the total to four before the end of the period. . . . The visions of an undefeated season were blasted by the spectacular play of the Mount Washington Club, the final result being 11-4. For the first period the Navy gamely battled their rivals to a standstill, but at the half time the score stood at 6-2, Wright of Navy distinguishing himself as goalie, pre- venting an utter rout. . . . Syracuse visited the Navy with high hopes, bringing an unbeaten ten, but lost after the Sailors staged an uphill battle to tie the score and then pull into the lead for a final 11-8. The Orange stickmen dominated the first half, but the reserve strength of the Navy was too much. . . . Navy fought its old rival, Maryland, to a standstill, and a double overtime period failed to break the deadlock. 453 f. HOW ARMY GAME STARTED Ward, N. G. Clark, W. C. Veth Maryland ' s lead throughout most of the regulation game was overhauled near the end. In the first over-time period Ward put in another shot, but the Terrapins matched it and tied up the score. . . . May 26, 1934, the Navy warriors undertook the journey to the shores of the hHudson to face the stick- men of West Point. Fierce play, as can be witnessed only in an Army-Navy contest, marked the game, and when the regulation periods had ended the score stood tied with each team having five goals to their credit. An over-time period was played and when the smoke of the Navy big guns had cleared away the score stood Navy 6, Army 5. This is the picture of the last and best lacrosse game of the season, ending perfectly as far as Navy is concerned. Condon, Ward, Anderson, and Swede Larsen accounted for the goals during the regulation playing time, and Ken Veth came through with the winning counter, after a fast mix-up, to sew up the game on the slenderest of margins. The win in this sport created another group of " N-star " Navy men, and, combined with those in baseball and track, made it a clean sweep for the day, and was also the first step in establishing a perfect record against Army in the calendar year of 1934.

Front Row: Blakely, Nicol, Scott, Waybright, Johnston, R. K., Whitaker, Pilcher, Johnston, D. G., Driver, Patterson, D. W. The beginnins of the season found Coach Thomson with a strong team on the field events and middle distances, but short on dash men. The return of Waybright to the squad, coupled with the discovery of several new men, cleared up the difficulty before the end of the season. . . . The first meet netted one Academy record in the javelin, and a score of 85 1 6- 40 5 6 in favor of Navy. Bakutis broke the javelin record for the first time, later continuing his assaults on it. Maryland brought one star performer, Wid- meyer, but were unable to match the Sailors ' per- formance in the field events. A youngster, Patterson, 456 Track 1934 Staggered start of 220 broke two records in one afternoon, running the ■ 220 low hurdles in 24.6 seconds, and broad jumping 23 feet 3 inches. The final score was Navy 80 2, Maryland 45}2. ■ ■ ■ The next week witnessed the staging of the annual Penn relays in Philadelphia. A small group of Midshipmen returned with medals; Wrigley took a third in the high hurdles, the one mile relay team tailed the championship Indiana team and the shuttle relay team placed third. An ancient rival, North Carolina, tripped Navy 67-59 in the next week-end, the final decision resting on the outcome of two events.

The highlight of the meet was the return of Waybright after a year ' s absence due to a leg injury. Bested in a 9.9 hundred, he coasted to an easy victory in the 220 yard dash, running off the distance in 21.2 seconds, and setting a new Academy record. . . . The University of Virginia Cavaliers were defeated by the best balanced Navy team seen for a long while, 78 2 5-47 3 5. Bingham cleared the high jump bar at 6 . i inches, while Bakutis was heaving the javelin 195 feet. . . . Navy 76 1 3, Army 49 2 3. Ending a season with a win over Army is the height of any Midshipman ' s ambition, and was realized in 1934 when the Midshipmen team soundly trounced the invaders from up on the hludson. Navy took ten firts: Bakutis set a new Academy record with a javelin toss of 205 2 feet; Bingham cleared the high bar at a new mark of 6 feet, 2 7 8 inches,- Waybright raced down the cinder path to come in ahead of the Black and Gray in the 100 and 220 dashes,- Captain Whitaker gathered in the high and low hurdles; seconds and thirds brought the total to a very satisfying score and sent the Kaydets home in defeat. 458 crew 459 VARSITY: Stone, Hood , McLean, Baldwin, Gray, Smith, N., Brockett, Becker, Krulak (Coxswain). V. The cold weather held up Navy ' s crew work in the early spring, but Coach Buck Walsh was able to put a good boat on the water by the 21st of April, weather notwithstanding. The First opponent of the season was Old Nassau, but Princeton disregarded our hospitality and took the first race of the season. The two teams got off to a good start, and hung to- gether for the first quarter-mile. At the half-mile mark Princeton was pulling a thirty-one, Navy one faster. Navy steadily increased its stroke to a forty but Princeton continued to pull ahead, and the race 460 JUNIOR VARSITY Austin, McGill, Fleming, Hoffman, Gray, CoFfin, McMahon, Bayless, Higginbotham (Coxswain). ended with the visitors soing over the hne in record time for the Severn course, 8:45.1. . . . The Naval Academy crews came back the following week to clean the river of the Blue of Columbia. Varsity and Jayvees won by comfortable margins, and in the closest race Navy ' s 150-pounders came in two seconds ahead. Columbia got off to the faster start, but Navy began creeping up and increased her lead from a quater-length at the half-mile mark to a length at the mile, and had doubled that when the last quarter-mile stretch was entered. . . .

The Oransemen took a lead which they couldn ' t hold for more than fifty yards. While Navy dropped to a thirty-seven Syracuse tried to use weight and strength to advantage rowing a thirty-five, but the Tars crossed the line four and a half seconds in the van. The opponents ' Jayvees and Frosh took both those races from the Middies. . . . The Jayvees took the New England Challenge Cup at Philadelphia on the 26th of May, with a time of 6:20.6. hHarvard and Penn were the opposition. The varisty came in a length behind Penn in the Adams Cup Race, in which we were the defenders. After a fairly even start Navy came up from astern to overtake hiarvard and close on Penn, but although Stone moved up to a forty-one the boat was unable to pass. . . . The Poughkeepsie Regatta climaxed our efforts for the year. Although neither varsity nor Jayvees were able to win, Navy showed real fight. As one sportswriter put it, our varisty " came brilliantly through that final mile — brilliantly and with the courage that is typical of Navy crews. " The Jayvees must be given much credit in their three mile race in which they fought hard all the way up the course, but trailed Syracuse 462 -1 ieymour Herold Bentley • ' SS - , t t by a bare quarter-length at the finish. ... In the principal race of the day, with oarsmen from both western and eastern coasts well represented, the boats from the Universities of California and Washington got off to a lead, with Navy holding down seventh place, but moving up to sixth through the first mile. At the completion of the second mile the Navy oarsmen had crept up to third place, rowing a thirty-three, and established themselves as the leader of the second group. All other eastern boats began to drop behind at this point, and it became clearly a challenge of Navy, as the East ' s representative, against the two western boats of California and Washington, the latter being in the van at this point. Navy gradually closed the distance between these two leaders and herself, moving up to join this group and to show a true challenge by the time the three-mile post was passed. In the final mile California pulled ahead of Washington to win, while Navy was still a quarter of a length behind the second place boat when she slid over the mark to end the 1934 season.

Soccer was one of those sports in which Navy got away to a fast start, but because of increasingly strong competition was unable to turn in as successful a season as could be wished for. Western Maryland was the initial opposition, and went down to defeat by a four-swabo score. Accurate pass work by the Navy team led to three goals in the first half, one by Miller and two by Teel. The final one came shortly after the opening of the third quarter when Eisenbach put one between the posts. . . . Ten days later Navy played host to Gettysburg College, and chalked up another win. This game was one in which the goalies showed some nice defensive work, and Miller, Dougherty, and Eisenbach nice offensive play. Miller put in two, Eisenbach one, and Sanderson one. Lerch and Williams accounted for tlie visitors two tallies. . . . The next game was the first of a series of defeats. Lefiigh was the offending team, and Berg and Sherrill 466 s occer 1934 Hutchinson, Officer Representalive Taylor, Coach the scorers. " Doc " Dougherty dropped one for the Blue and Gold. In the first half Lehigh held the upper hand, and although the Navy attack began to function in the third quarter it wasn ' t strong enough to catch up, and the game ended 2-1, with Lehigh on top. . . . Yale handed the freebooters their second loss on November third, 4-2. Yale scored in each period except the first, and Navy scored in the second and fourth on kicks by Miller and Captain Dougherty. The Bulldog ' s superiority as a result of keeping the ball in the air, and moving fast. . . . Navy ' s only loss by a shutout was suffered at the hands of hHaverford College on the tenth of November. Navy carried the fight to hHaverford in the first period, neither team scoring. In the second period Ritchie scored one, and in the third period Stokes and Brown added to the total. Stokes scored the final goal in the last period. . . . The final game of the season was played away, at Penn State College, when Navy met a team that had toured Europe and come up against some very stiff opposition. Navy found trouble in stopping this team with so much experience, and especially McEwan, center forward, who was responsible for four of the seven Penn State tallies. Bielicki got two and Corbitt one against Miller ' s one for Navy, ending the game at 7-1 467 AV I Hutchinson, Captain Adams, Manager Cross Country 1934 Second Row: Adams, Purer, Wilson, youns, Lt. Martin. First Row: Shetenhelm, Sleight, Schofield, Hauck. Navy ' s cross country team manged to turn in only a fair season during the fall of 1935. The cross country run is a three or four mile jaunt over the byways, hills, and dales of the surrounding countryside, and takes much out of a man. Nevertheless, Navy always has a good many men working out in this manner each year in the late fall. The harriers ' first meet was on the twentieth of October, here at the Academy, and gave indications that the Blue and Gold would stand a good deal of watching in this sport. The University of Virginia offered the opposition, but failed to place a man in the first five. It seems to be the policy of the cross country team to display a fraternal spirit, and come across the finish line together. In this first meet of the year hHutchinson, Captain, and Young, Schofield, Shetenhelm, Sleight, and Purer all turned in a time of 19:18.5 for the three mile course, coming across the finish line in what seemed 468 Cross Country 1934 Lockwood, Officer Representative Thomson, Coach to be a platoon formation. Hauck, Navy, was next with a 19:21, one second ahead of Wait, the First Virginia man to come in. And so Navy had a perfect score, 15-40. . . . After a three weeks layoff the squad traveled to Durham, North Carolina to take on the Blue Devils of Duke. This time it was a four mile course, and an unfamiliar one at that. Young fell and cut himself badly, forcing him to withdraw, and " hHutch " Hutchinson, Nelson, Schofield, and Sleight all had an attack of cramps, which removed our number one man from the race before the finish line was reached. Chiefly as a result of losing these fine runners, and the handicap under which the others were running Duke was enabled to take the race with an 18-37 score. Morse, hHeritage, Ferris, and George, all of Duke, took one, two, three, four, with fifth, sixth, and seventh places going to Purer, Shetenhelm and Phil hHauck, of Navy. . . . The third and final meet was with Pittsburg, and again Navy was forced to take the high, or losing, end of a 19-36 score. George hlutchinson now holds the Naval Acad- emy record for a four mile course as a result of his 21 :1 5, thirteen seconds faster than the old course record, but Musico and Kirkpatrick, of Pitt, both succeeded in the same respect, with times of 21:04.4 and 21:11 respectively. 469 Dougherty, Captain Shellworth, Manage Wrestling 1934 Fourth Row: Masters, Fitzgerald, Shupper, Howland, Orr, Pridmore, Millen, M., Rogers, Little, Reece.

The wrestling season opened with the University of Pennsylvania Quakers as easy opposition. In only one class, the 145 pound, did Navy fail to gain a fall. Tipton, Captain " Doc " Dougherty, Winters, Sam Adams, Hunter, Cole, and Schacht all threw their men, while Wright got a decision from Taylor, of Penn. Score, 38-0. . . . The following week the V. M. I. cadets held Navy to a 16-16 tie. Tipton and Riley clashed in the 118 pound class, and Tip threw his man with a half-nelson and armlock after seven minutes and eleven seconds. Clay wrestled in Dougherty ' s place in the 126 pound class because of the letter ' s bad back and won a decision. Sherrard, his opponent, once threatened to throw Clay with a figure four and arm hold, but this was averted. Sherrard failed to work the same hold, and Clay got topside to stay until the time was up. Winters was thrown by Witt, of V. M. I., who used a bar and chancery hold 470 Wrestlins 1934 Perry, Officer Representative Scfiutz, Coacfi L to win. But Merryman came back in the next bout to take Travis over in 2;55, and add five points. Adams won his bout on a time advantage of 6:37, scoring Navy ' s last points. hHunter lost on a fall, and Cole and Schacht prevented their men from throwing them so that V. M. I. garnered just enough points to tie the score. . . . Once again Navy shut out its opponent, this time Chicago, 30-0. Tipton took Ware over by a fall, using a bar and chancery. Don Clay and Zukowski could not throw each other, but Clay managed to pile up enough time in the first top and top session so that he had no difficulty in winning. Cresap, in his first meet, wiped up the mat with the Chicago captain, hHoward, but couldn ' t work into a fall, coming out with eight and a half minutes ad- vantage. Merryman made it even greater in the next match with an 8:52 time advantage, never giving his opponent, Gorman, a chance at topside. Sam Adams got the second fall of the meet from Kracke, with a bar and chancery. Mills also gained a fall in his first match of the year when he threw Butler with a head scissors and armlock in 4 minutes and 42 seconds, and Cole took the 1 76 pound class from Pesek by an advantage of 6:50. The closest match of the 471 472 Hunter Tipton Vogel afternoon was between Schacht and White- sides. Chicago took the first period, but Ken came back in the second to be up 2 minutes and 27 seconds. . . . Then Navy broke Le- high ' s string of 24 victories. Tipton threw Clow with a double bar hold, Winters was badly beaten on time, and Cresap got the points back by defeating Wolcott. Then Merryman took the 145 pound class in a good match. Adams, Mills, and Cole all threw their men. Kenny Schacht ran into trouble with Lehigh ' s Scobey in the heavyweight class, and was thrown with a bar and arm lock. . . . The Crimson of LHarvard was successfully passed by, 21-11. In his first varsity meet Rogers gained a decision over Petrenik in an evenly matched bout irv which neither was able to get a decisive hold. The match was evened in the next bout when Stoddard held 3 minutes, 16 seconds topside advantage, and then Cresap put the Blue and Gold ahead by working hard on Granahan, nearly getting a hold down. Once more the score was evened when Cavin defeated Southerland, replacing Merryman, out with a bad ear, and then Sam Adams and Lou Mills each gained five points by falls. Adams took 2 minutes and 10 seconds, and Mills 11 seconds less. Cole wasn ' t so fortunate, though. ■ i ' Cole Winters Wright k and was unable to stay topside. He was W l thrown by Emory with a head lock. Schacht aJ I won by default. . . . Again the grapplers , ipH blanked their opponents, this time the Uni- B versity of Pittsburg, 38-0. Clay and Tipton changed classes, Clay opening in the 118 pound bout, getting topside with a flying tackle and shifting into a bar and chancery. A second tackle, another bar and chancery, and Clay had a fall to his credit. Tipton also got a fall with a head scissors and arm lock, and hlugh Winters took the 1 35 pounder from Pitt over by a big Hme advantage. Wright gained a fall in the 145 pound event with a bar and chancery, and Adams another with a head lock and chancery from George. The rest of the bouts were all falls for Navy. . . . Penn State proved to be tough opposition, and Navy scored only one de- cision, Tipton ' s over Dirito in the 126 pound class. Clay, Mills, Cole, and Schacht were defeated by falls, while Cresap and Merryman lost decisions. The final score stood Penn State 29, Navy 3, and gave the wrestling team a record of five wins, one loss, and one tie, to wind up a good season. 473 Lambert, Captain Stanley, Manager Boxins 1935 First Row: Kissinger, Lofland, Becker, Phillips, Blitch, Lambert, Cutter, Hocker, Armijo, Michel.

Fourth Row: Zabriskie, Nixon, Halla, Chambers, Fox, Smith, Stiles, White, Kerby, Lipski, Finnigan. The opening meet of the 1935 boxing season was marked by three technical knockouts. After FHemenway had lost a decision and Barry had won one to even things up. Jack Blitch scored a K. O. in the second round over Moore of Western Maryland College, the opening opposition. Gorski, intercollegiate champion in the 165 pound class, and captain of the Green Terrors, sent Dave Zabriski down in the first round, but Dave wasn ' t out until the referee stopped the bout in the second round. The Navy captain, Beppo Lambert, came back in the next bout to punch Skinner around for a round and a half before the referee decided the Maryland boy had had enough. Cutter won by default, and the wins of George Conkey and Eddie Michel brought the final score to 6-2, Navy. . . . Richmond was next, and this time Navy won, 7-1. Hemenway lost the opener to Wills, but from then on it was easily Navy ' s evening. Raw- 474 I B oxing 1935 Bryan, Officer Representative Webb, Coach L ling ' s bout was only an exhibition, since his man couldn ' t make the weight, but he showed the crowd that he could gain the decision against even a heavier man. Blitch fought a close one in the 135 pound bout, but the final round was enough to give him the decision over Scott, and Conkey followed with a win over Koppin in the 145 pound class. Michel showed a little of his speed against Vaughan in the 165 weight, and George Lambert pounded his man for two rounds and sent him down in the third to gain his second knockout of the season. Cutter and Armijo won by forfeits. . . . The Virginia meet was a little more close, but a little less successful in the outcome as far as Navy was concerned. This meet v as the big one of the year. Virginia had won twenty-one bouts previous to this one, and MacDonough hHall was packed to the over- heads, hiemenway took on one of Virginia ' s co-captains, HIahn, in the opener, and mixed it up, but the decision went to Hahn. The Cavalier ' s other co-captain, Rainey, fought smoothly for two rounds, and although he began to tire badly in the third Barry was unable to even the results of the first two rounds. The first Navy win came when Blitch dropped Virginia ' s Brooks for a count of nine 475 Cutter Herold Davenport t in the first round, and continued to dominate the fight to gain a decision. Ed Michel and McClung fought to a draw in a fight in which both drew blood after George Conkey lost a decision to Womer in the 145 weight. The next bout vvas the deciding factor. Caplin and Zabriskie came out evenly in the first round, but Dave received one on the chin in the second, followed by a lot of lefts that sewed up the meet for the Cavaliers. But the Navy boxers really went to it in the last two fights. Lambert laid into Noll in the 175 pound class, clearly outclassing him, and although not getting a knockout, placing him out on his feet. And then Slade Cutter took but 38 seconds to end the heavyweight bout. Score, Virginia 4 2 Navy 31 ' 2- • • . Navy was back on the top the following week, when Penn State was whipped, 5-3. hiemenway scored a technical knockout over Criswell, intercollegiate champ, when Criswell s eye began bleeding badly. Rawlings was out-pointed by McAndrews in the featherweight division, but Kerby, fighting in Blitch s place, turned in a nice performance to win over Penn State ' s captin, Zeleznock. hHocker made his varsity debut by knocking his opponent, Bachman, down twice in the first round, and had no difficulty 476 Blitch Matthews Peppard in taking the decision from the Penn State man. Armijo lost on a technical knockout to Ritzie, although the First two rounds were quite even, and in the next bout Michel de- feated hHogan. Since Cutter was not able to enter the ring that night Lambert ' s fight was the last of the evening, and he easily clinched the meet. . . . The University of New hHampshire was the next foe, and Navy experienced no difficulty in boosting its total won. The three lighter weights were the closest bouts. Lambert knocked out Yaloff in the second round, and Cutter followed with a quick disposal of Gowen, a technical knockout, ending the meet at 63 -1 H- • ■ ■ Syracuse was a 5 2-2 2 victim. Hemenway, Rawlings, Blitch, and Hocker all won over their opponents, hierold and Michel, however, were forced to take decisions, and Lambert fought to a draw with Jeffries. Cutter wound up with a decision instead of a K. O. this time, but there never was doubt as to the final outcome. . . . The sixth win of the season was scored in the final meet as the Navy boxers punished the Pittsburg repre- sentatives. When the evening ' s battles were finished the Annapolis boys found they had a 6 ' 2-I 2 win to their credit. 477 Plichtd, Captain Bierman, Manaser s wimming 1935 ' I Back Row: Flenniken, Burgess, Holmes, DeVane, Goodloe, Dodds, Street, Bierman (Manager). Third Row: Lt. Humphreys, Williams, Grider, Bjarnson, Hayler, Laizure, Smith, L. A., Ortland (Coach). Second Row: Westin, Clift, Hyland, Plichta (Captain), Stevens, McEntee, Bauer, Thomson. Front Row: Mehle, Smith, W. R., Spencer, Myers, Carnes. Midshipman Jack Stevens led the swimming team to victory in the Virginia meet by smashing the 440 record by 9.1 seconds, racing the distance in 5 minutes, 14.7 seconds. This feat, combined with the victories of Phchta in the 220, McEntee and Carnes in diving, and Billy Hyland in the hundred gave Navy a 53-22 advantage. . . . Next week Joe Plichta tied the 220 intercollegi- ate " record, and added the 100 to his wins for the day besides swimming on the winning relay team. This meet with Rutgers was an exciting one. Places were split so that when the relay team took the water the score was 33-30, making this the deciding event, as in the previous year. But Navy ' s team of hHyland, Westin, Stevens, and Plichta piled up a big lead to add eight more points. . . . Breaking records having become somewhat of a habit, Stevens again set a new mark in the C. C. N. Y. meet, this time traveling the 220 in 2 478 Vi I II Swimming 1935 Humphreys, Officer Representative Ortland, Coach L minutes, 21.7 seconds. Plichtd and Hyland came in one-two in the 440, and Plichta and Westin as closely in the 100. McEntee performed beautifully on the diving board, and the relay team of Smith-Freiderich- DeVane-Spencer brought the final score to Navy 48, C. C. N. Y. 23. . . . Not content with the mark he set three weeks previously, Stevens again took it upon himself to lower the 440 yard, 150-foot pool, record. Jennings, of Columbia, took both the 50 and the 150 yard back stroke, but Navy won the 220 yard breast stroke, Grider being the representative, and Plichtd and Stevens taking first and second in the century. The relay team also won, to send Columbia home in defeat, 46-25. . . . Yale maintained her supremacy as intercollegiate champion when she forced Navy to bow, 51-20. Navy ' s only first was in the 50 yard free style, when Stevens swam the distance in 24.6 seconds. ... In the last of the dual meets Navy swamped the University of Pennsylvania in a 48-23 victory. Phchta ac- counted for twelve points, Stevens came in second in the 40 and first in the 100, Carnes took the honors from the low board, and Grider and hHyland finished one-two in the 200 yard breast stroke event. 479 Fitzpdtrick, Cdptdin Gillmer, Manager Water Polo 1935 Fourth Row: Daub, Ely, Melhop, Keen, Sharrocks, Wing, Lt. Stefanie. Third Row: Gillmer, Amme, Kirkpatrick, Lownes, Bennett, Foster (Coach), Lt. Humphreys. Second Row: Grider, Sullivan, Crosby, Baker, Fitzpatrick (Captain), Outlaw, Shaffer, Clark, Gustafson. First Row: Cunningham, Phaler, Rutter, Palmer. i The Suicide Club won four and lost two games during the 1935 season. The First loss was to the strong New York Athletic Club, 21-4. Clark, Outlaw, Sullivan, Shaffer, Baker, and Fitzpatrick were Navy ' s starting line-up, all in their last season with the Blue and Gold. Captain Fitz was Navy ' s outstanding star in this game, but the very experienced New Yorkers were too strong for the boys of the Severn school. . . . The following week ' s game started with a touch goal for Navy, and from then on the game was easily Navy s. Most of the Blue scoring was done by Clark, who chalked up five touch goals, but Gustafson, Sullivan, Grider, and Crosby all got one apiece. Meyer, the Rutgers ' center forward, accounted for eight of the visitors points. Final score: Navy 27, Rutgers University 14. . . . The poloists got into high gear the follow- ing Saturday, and turned back the City College of New York decisively, 32-5 480 Water Polo 1935 Humphreys, Officer Representative Foster, Coacfi All of C. C. N. y. ' s points were the result of foul goals, while all but one of Navy ' s were touch goals. These were quite well distributed, Clark, Atkins, Baker, and Fitzpatrick getting two, Grider and Shaffer one, and Crosby scoring once via the two-point method. . . . hHopes for an intercollegiate championship were blasted by Columbia, who defeated the Tars by a 20-13 score. Navy ' s forwards were unable to penetrate to the goal under the vigilance of the Columbia forwards. Fitzpatrick ' s work was especially brilliant, but wasn t enough to stop the Columbia players. . . . Yale was the next loser to the Navy team, 23-6. Early in the game Fitzpatrick scored with a foul, and Bill Sullivan pushed one up against the goal immediately after. Yale threw a brace at the beginning of the second half, but Navy soon got into its stride again and added eight points. . . . The season closed with a win over the Quakers of Pennsyl- vania, and placed Navy in second place in the Eastern Intercollegiate Associa- tion. Penn had held the ball around the Navy goal for five minutes without scoring, when finally Navy gained possession of it. Clark scored the first goal shortly after. With the start of the second half Navy seemed to have the Penn defense solved, and went on to win handily. 481 ' Eppes, Captdi Arellano, Manager Gymnasium 1935 ■UAV i ' r I ■• » .„Wt ; NAVY ; NAVvT ' WA ' 4i ' 4 4 •— _ ' Third Row: Useth, Robertson, Cruse, Lanham, Simpson, Folsom, Ryder, Embree, Rameriz de Arellano (Manaser). Second Row: Mang (Coach), Lederer, Boyd, Seitz, Freeman, Sherwood, Hart, Terry, Lt. Rucker. First Row: FHazzard, Edge, Sisler, McCroskey, Eppes (Captain), Beaman, Keats, Metcalf. The y. M. C- A. team of Newark, New Jersey, was the First team to fall before the onslaught of the Navy gymnasts, 26-18. The visitors were able to take two firsts out of the six events, one on the horizontal bar, and one in the tumbling. The rope climb was good for all nine points, Folsom climbing it in 4 seconds flat. Schock and Kunkle took first and second on the side horse, Bemis first on the bars, and Boyd first on the rings. Schuler proved to be the Y ' s best man by taking the horizontal bar, second on the parallels, and third on the horse. . . . After nearly a three week layoff, the gymnasts went on the road to defeat Princeton and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in two successive days. The Princeton meet was close, with the rope climb being the deciding event. With a tie score of 23-23 Cruse of Navy and Gucker of Princeton each climbed the rope in identical times, in each of the three trials. On the fourth climb 482 G ymnasium 1935 Rucker, Officer Representative Mang, Coach Gucker failed to touch the pan, thereby winning the meet for Navy, 28-26. The Engineers were taken over much more easily on the following night, 42-13. M. I. T. was able to place one man at the top in his event, the tumbling, and took three seconds, while the rest of the events were swept by Navy. Cruse repeated his win of the night before, Eppes, Terry, and Garver placed one, two, three on the horizontal, and Bemis and Sisler won their events, the parallel bars and flying rings, respectively. Kunkle, Schock, and Simpson cleaned up on the horse. . . . Temple University ' s unusual class proved to be a little too much for the Navy lads, and the gym team suffered its first defeat since 1928, a defeat that meant the loss of the Harvard cup, which, had they won, would have been the permanent property of Navy. The final score stood 30-24, in favor of Temple. Navy swept the rings, Boyd and Beaman tying for first, and Temple took all three places in tumbling, led by Philips, who also placed first on both the parallel and horizontal bars. Cruse repeated his Princeton per- formance by winning out when he was hard-pressed, and climbed the rope in 4.5 seconds. Lou Schock took the other Navy first. . . . Dartmouth was defeated the following week by the strong Navy team, by a 44-10 score. 483 Johnston, Cdptain Fee, Manager F encing 1935 Third Row: Gerath, Sherry, Bell, Johnston, P. M., McLaughlin, Woodard, Vance. Second Row: Lt. Comdr. Doughty, Small, Taylor, Bennett, Neyman, Doll, Fee (Manager). First Row: Deladrier (Coach), FHathaway, Hanger, Carmichael, Johnston, A.F. (Captain), Gerwick, Blohm, Wagner, Taeymans. Captain Arnold Johnston led his swordsmen to victory in the opening meet of the season against the University of Pennsylvania, 22-5. The visitors scored only a single point with the epee and saber, and the fine fighting of their ace, Colville, won them three bouts in foil, while Navy took eight bouts in epee and saber, Doll, Neyman, and Wagner each winning two bouts in this event. The- fencers lost their first meet in two years when the New York University team invaded the Naval Academy. The foil matches virtually decided the meet, for the New Yorkers were able to gain a 7-2 advantage with this weapon, and also manged to win the saber bouts, 5-4. The Midshipmen took the epee, 6-3, Captain Johnston winning all three of his bouts in this weapon, as well as one in the foil matches, to take individual Navy honors for the day. Neyman won two out of three from the saber men, as did Bennett with the epee. The 484 Fencing 1935 Doughty, Officer Representative Deladrler, Coacfi meet ended with the New York team ahead, 15-12. . . . The next week, however, the fencers defeated another New York team, City College of New York. Navy managed a slim margin in the foils, 5-4, and likewise in the saber matches, but with the epee the Middies showed superiority. Johnston garnered five points in five matches, two epee, and three foil, while hHathaway took three bouts with the dueling sword. . . . One week later the pin-pushers again sent their opponents down, this time hHarvard. And again it was superior ability with the epee that turned the trick. The saber was won by hiarvard, 5-4, while the foil was taken by the Blue and Gold, leaving the three point advantage gained in the other weapon the deciding factor. Gerwick came through with a triple win in this event, Johnston added two more, and Bennett one. Johnston also won two out of three with the foil, as did hHanger Columbia also proved better sabermen than Navy, and because of this one thing took the measure of the Blue and Gold, even though they were bested in the foil and epee matches, 5-4. The 6-3 advantage with the third weapon gave them the meet, 14-13. 485 Rutherford, Capt. Outdoor Rifle McCallum, Capt.

Second Row: Blenman, Barleon, Bartlett, Rutherford (Captain), Burdick, Brandt, Lynch. First Row: Strong, Parrish, Dorsey, McCallum. A marked advantage in the standing position enabled the Cornell rifleists to take Navy, 1502-1384, but N. Y. U. could not stand up to Navy ' s shooting, and were defeated 1380-1366. Against Carnegie Tech the Tars turned in a 1392 score, easily outshooting their opponents, and against Lehigh they raised the points to 1396, but had just one too few to win. A week later the count was raised to 1408, and this time the Naval Academy team was very much better than the opposition, the University of Maryland, whose total was 1362. Nicholson ' s steady improvement gave him a 285 for the afternoon, and Captain Pop ' Rutherford was close behind with a 284. ... In a postal match with the West Point marksmen the Naval Academy team estabhshed a new course record to submerge Army, 1418-1365. All hands shot possibles in the prone position, with Nicholson ' s 289 high for the match. 486 Outdoor Rifle 1 934 Wampler, Manaser 1935 Mumma, Coach I - , Back Row: Lt.

Second Row: Weber, Nauman, Strickler, Schotz, Ware, Zysk, hlanger, Blenman. First Row: Spelmeyer, Kramer, Ewald, Settle, Blenman, Isberg, McCallum. The rifle team won its first and last shooting matches of the 1934 season, and dropped one each to the Philadelphia Marines, and the District of Columbia Guardsmen. In the opener, against the New York National Guard ' s 71st Infantry, Navy shot a 2345 to beat the Guardsmen ' s 2335. Against the Marines Navy ' s score was 2371, a new Academy record, but still 14 points too few to win. The District team shot the best score the Academy course has pro- duced, a 2392, and Navy again had a 2371 . The final match, against the 107th of the New York National Guard, found a bad cross wind holding both teams ' scores down, but Navy came out on top with a 2320 against the New Yorker ' s 2309. Fine shooting against very good teams, with the work of Strickler, the Navy captain, especially good, characterized the season. 487 Mdnn, Captain 1935 Walker, A .anaser 1935 Tennis 1934 Back Row: Martin, Dillen, Mann, H.

Front Row: Caldwell, McClung, Gay, Pinney, Kimmel, Mann, Captain Willson. With such racqueteers as McCiuns, Mann, Kimmel, Gay, Pinney, and Caldwell, Navy experienced a very successful tennis season. ... In the open- ing meet against Haverford Navy turned in an 8-1 win, taking all except the first match in two sets, Cald A ell defeating Hunsicker in two love sets. . . . The next week Maryland fell 7-2, Navy losing one singles and one double match. Georgetown capitulated by the same score a week later. McClung won his match after a hard fight in the first set in which each man won his own service for a while, but Mac finally broke through his opponent ' s service and then took a love game on his own. Mann, Kimmel, and Clay all had but little trouble with their men. . . . Johns hlopkins was next with an 8-1 score. Pinney turned in the best singles match of the day on a bitterly fought 9-7 win. . . . Two opponents in the next week proved to be a little tougher but Navy ' s streak 488 Tennis 1934 Willson, Officer Representative Gaudet, Coacfi W% . was continued. Lafayette was first, and tfie fact tfiat Navy played Columbia on their courts made no difference, tfie Blue and Gold wmnins by a 6-3 score. . . . Tlie first of a series of setbacks came wiien Navy played Virginia in the rain. The match was not finished because of the dampness and Virginia walked off the victors by virtue of four wins in the singles. Gay and Pinney each won their matches. Three days later North Carolina ' s undefeated team swooped down on the Naval Academy and showed a well-balanced team to take four singles and two doubles. Jack Mann shovved some very good tennis in slashing his way to victory in his singles and teaming up with Kimmel to defeat the Tarheel ' s ranking doubles team. . . . Duke also set Navy back, by a 5-4 score, each team getting three singles, but Duke squeezed out two of the doubles. Later in the week Pitt went down in an easy match, Navy dropping only the first singles match in a three set affair. . . . The Tars swept up the remaining matches of the season. Washington and Jefferson and Penn State both went down, 9-0, and Pennsylvania was taken over after a grueling four hour battle by a 5-4 score to wind up a successful season. 489 Tc O THESE PEOPLE, WHO HAVE GREATLY HELPED US IN OUR WORK, WE WANT TO EXPRESS OUR SINCERE APPRECIATION.

But, since we couldn ' t, we invited three Midshipmen to visit the mills when in England last summer. Commenting on the trip, they wrote a letter from which we have taken the following ex- cerpts: " ... People always wonder if the suit they buy is all wool. We couldn ' t find a thread of cotton anywhere. We were impressed by the careful preparation of the wool and the pains- taking dying and matching of color so that a suit bought today might be perfectly matched in years to come. . . . We noticed how finely the wool was carded into nearly invisible wisps. . . . We enjoyed watching the swift-moving looms deftly weaving a base cloth seemingly as thick as a blanket. . . . And the finishing process! You . certainly give that cloth a beating, running it through soap and pounding it for three days until it shrinks from 91 to 56 inches. The scientific- ally controlled under-water heat treating and work of the teazle ( ) in drawing out the loose fibers to be cut off until the cloth was thinned down to a usable weight impressed us. The final brushing and polishing to give the cloth a rich, silky sheen was a revelation. . . . When we saw cloth that had completed this 4 month process and had aged 6 months more, we couldn ' t tell it was woven, it was of such a rich fur-like texture. We realized why Stroud has been famed since Charles II ' s time for fine uniform cloths. " ( ) Pronounced with hard " g. " ( ) Small burr-like plant growth.

The first marine boiler built by this organization was constructed in 1875. From this time through the period of the World War, when the Company furnished over 1400 boilers for vessels of the Navy and for the Emergency Fleet, The Babcock Wilcox Company has been constantly progressive in policies, and has grown in organization and in facilities until it is, admittedly, the largest, the foremost of its kind. In this period, it has built more marine boilers than the combined totals of all other manufacturers. The Company ' s service to the Marine Industry, however, is not finished ... as further progress is made in the generation of steam for marine propulsion. The Babcock Wilcox Company will further demonstrate its leadership. The Babcock Wilcox Company, 85 Liberty St., New York BABCOCK WILCDX 6 ' " Glad you selected the Werntz School.

Only after this test has proved internal perfection do engine parts progress to the final stages of production. KEEN eyes, and hands that have been made skilful by years of fine workmanship are the rule in the Pratt Whitney Aircraft jjlant. No- where are they more in evidence than in the many inspections between stages of production. Gage blocks, micrometers, microscopes — and special tests evolved by the Pratt Whitney Aircraft staff — all are in constant use, checking the pre- cision of operations from the time raw material enters the plant until completed engines are tested and boxed for shipment. Each of these painstaking inspections is made for just one purpose — to prepare Wasp and Hornet engines for the most exacting test of all — the relentless stresses and strains of wind and weather during every second of operation aloft. For the final measure of work well done in the sho p is the reputation for dependability established by Pratt Whitney engines throughout eight years of service on commercial and military airplanes throughout the world.

DUBOIS MAKES HIS TENTH BOW June Week, 1935, at the U. S. Naval Academy means more to you than just setting your shoulder straps, however great the anticipation • As President Roosevelt said to the graduating class of 1933, a Naval Academy diploma is a certificate of character. You now become patterns for the thousands of less fortunate young men of the nation who look to you as examplars of the highest ideals of patriotism — men whose loyalty and devotion will always keep Old Glory ' s colors untarnished • The 1935 Lucky Bag will always be an increasingly prized reminder of your busy, but happy days at Annapolis. This year ' s Bag presents a pic- torial record that speaks a universal language. The photo- graph needs no interpreter when you are on land or sea afar. • To Editor Frank K. Slason and Manager Norman H. Meyer — and the whole Lucky Bag Staff — is due a debt of gratitude for an achievement in publishing that is a monu- ment to their industry and Class spirit. • The DuBois Press desires to give unstinted recognition to the loyal men who toiled long hours — so ably and faithfully — in building this outstanding volume in the history of Lucky Bags.
