' HE rugged, strong, and mighty symbol of a nation; the bulwark of home and freedom against which the waves of wrath and jealousy dash in vain; whose bow has cleft the deep blue waters of the Tropics and smashed the angry seas of the gray Atlantic; whose tops have gazed upon the last golden breath of the dying Day and welcomed the Morning Star ; whose guns have frowned on strife and revolution, and furthered the cause of peace by that same grim disapproval. The lifeblood of America courses hotly in your veins, energizing those sinews of iron and steel upon which the thought and labor of countless generations of architects, engineers, and craftsmen have been expended since man first ventured forth to pit his skill against the violence of the elements — the physical embodiment of the hopes and ambitions of unsung heroes who have given of their life ' s blood to farther advance the cause of freedom of the seas. It is then, with fitting regard, that we dedicate this book, hoping in these pages to pay homage to the silent sentinel of the oceans, guarding always with firm and quiet majesty the interests of our United States in foreign lands, our honor and integrity in battle, and the welfare of our people at home. S( :SS5SSSSSSSSSSSSS $SSSSSSSSSS OREWORD S THE battleship is the product of careful and painstaking labor over the course of years, so we have toiled to put together in this book the story of the moulding of untried candidates into finished naval officers. These four years of matchless fellowship in Bancroft Hall are well worth remembering. If the book tul ' fills its purpose as a reminder of those brief but happy days, the goal toward which we strived will have been attained. :s5: : :- x-: - : :x x ONTENTS ' S, N Boo One we present the beauty of THE YARD . . .

This " cheese ' box on a raft, ' ' invented by John Ericsson, mounted two guns in a revolving turret, which, once started, could not be stopped, thus making necessary firing ' ' on the fly. " This obvious fault was soon remedied by firing the guns over an armored barbette, _ from a revolving platform inside, and later, to give SS XSSSSSSSSS$5SSS535SS3SSSSSS! protection from the plunging fire of increased ranges, a top shelter was added. The principle was soon adopted by all navies, and from this crude beginning has descended our almost invulnerable present day turret. - ' 5He ACAVEMT il :% ' Sam ' m •-• iUll •S S J I -j BAHCROFT HALL iX MAHAH HALL i T3H£ JAKD Ivw f SV " - aiiii - -- mmmm • SUrtOKe A ' RK i wee HALL • OAHLGKEH HALL ' BH£ QHA ' PEL V ' J J " 1 " V 1 L ,.:c »-•,• « .

This event took place in Quiberon Bay on the west coast of France when Jones, flying his flag from the Ranger, persuaded the admiral commanding the port to answer his thirteen gun salute with nine guns, the number allotted to such a power as Holland. A short time later. Great Britain was forced to acknowledge the ensign, when H.M.S. Drak struck to the Raitger, and since that day the Stars and Stripes has received its due homage in every far flung port of the world. sssssssss The Commander ' in-Chief FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT • •• • • • • • • • •• The Secretary of the 7 lavy CLAUDE AUGUSTUS SWANSON • • • • • • • • • • The Superintendent REAR-ADMIRAL DAVID F.

To be successful m handling men a Naval officer must be able to place hmiself in the enlisted man ' s position and to understand his viewpoint. This is the way the Executive Department has trained us. For three years we have been the followers and now, as First Class, we are the leaders. Other essentials included in the Department ' s curriculum are indoctrination of new plebes with Service standards, the impressing of the importance of duty, and the teaching of Navy traditions. This course starts the first day we enter and is concluded when we are handed our diplomas. The other de- partments are concerned with training and building the mind and body of the future officer. The Executive Department moulds his character. It imbues him with the spirit of the Service. It turns out the officer and the gentleman. DRUM AND BUGLE CORPS STAFF 1st Set 2nd Set 3rd Set Coindr.

The Navigator hur- ■ ' riedly grabs his sextant and chronometer. After shooting two or three stars, he works out a fix and gets his position. Another triumph is recorded for the Nav Department. ... A destroyer is making thirty knots in answer to a frenzied SOS. Arriving at the wreck, the skipper quickly and efficiently removes the crew. He has used the principles he learned from Seamanship at the Academy. . . . These are two of the many examples of the varied and essential knowledge which is gained from the Department of Seamanship and Navigation. After rushing madly to P-works, arms loaded with books, instruments, and charts, all of Second Class year, we have learned the rudiments of Nav which are applied on the cruise. Seamanship during the following year, with Its side line of blinker, has further aided us to know our jobs when we join the Fleet. " Tou see a red over white over green over blue.

" This famous quotation furnishes the Ordnance Department with its purpose — to train officers who can produce rapid and accurate gunfire in time of battle. Not only is this a necessity in modern warfare, but we have a tradition, begun by John Paul Jones and upheld by each succeeding generation, of being foremost m the field of gunnery. Beginning at the foundation, we first become acquainted with small arms by spending long hours on the rifle range and in the pistol gallery. From these we are promoted to big guns on the cruise as we fire S.R.B.P. Second Class year finds us sketching torpedoes and mines. We finish the course our final year with elementary fire control. The whole course, in- teresting and valuable, provides a solid foundation for the working knowledge that is required in the Fleet. " Anyquestionsgentkmendrawshps. " Comdr.

For it is its duty to teach us the reasons why ships run and how to keep them running. Although it will seem to most of us that they have gone about their job in a rather devious manner, they really have accomplished their purpose. This " devious path " has consisted of Mechanical Drawing, Metallurgy, and Thermodyna- mics, which IS still a mystery to most of us. Can anyone define entropy In the latter half of Second Class Year we started specializing when we became members of the Book of the Month Club. After learning all about turbines, gas and steam engines, and boilers, we delved into the " Engineer ' s Bible " during First Class Year. Now we have the finished product; the Steam Department has produced a capable engineering oificer. " Doti ' t never start no turbine without you re sure you got plenty o ' erl in the harrins. ' Capt.

During the subsequent years our chagrin was great to learn that the termination of the course itself marked the beginning of intense application of Math, to our various scientific and technical subjects. In every naval ac- tivity mathematics reduces the theoretical to the practical. The naval constructor needs his figures in order to get the most out of the limited tonnage at his disposal. The gunnery officer would be lost without the neces- sary numbers to compute his ballistic. The sun, Venus, and the stars would mean nothing to the navigator without mathematics by which he makes them demonstrate his position. We can never forget the daily races at the board, or the sight of the first section returning from class, covered with chalk dust and with slip ' Sticks still smoking! " This integration is beyond the scope of the text, and is left to the student as an exercise.

Plebe year we studied Chemistry with its equations and symbols. " Slipstick Willie " going through his antics, ably ted by his stooge Walter, represents those Saturday lectures in Physics during youngster year. After Icating the sophomoric mind with the principles of Bernoulli and Charles we were exposed to electricity by way of direct current second class year. The last year brought alternating current, when we learned that I did not equal E R, and Radio (ours still doesn ' t work). It has been the ami of the Department to give a groundwork in the sciences, chemical, physical, and elec- trical, upon which the naval ofEcer may build his future as an efficient unit in the organization.

Cook McCormick Heath Westcott Alden Anderson Norris De Weese Sturdy ENGLISH AND HISTORY ' VTOR is any man fit to command a ship of war who is not also capable of communicating his ideas on paper - in language that becomes his rank, " said John Paul Jones in a letter to the Marine Board in 1777. With this advice by the Father of the American Navy as a preamble, the Department of English and History has given us a course designed to produce, not a scholar, but an oificer who appreciates and knows how to apply the principles of grammar to both written and spoken English. After a thorough groundwork in the fundamentals of correct usage of the language, they have presented courses m American, English, and Euro- pean literature. To justify the other half of its title, the department has taught us history, especially the naval history of the world in general and of the United States m particular — basic knowledge for a naval officer. " Sir, will we have to s etch the Battle of Jutland on the exam? " Prof. C. S.

The Navy covers the ' world and visits all of its ports. The officer must be able to go ashore and establish contacts, both socially and for the purpose of obtaining supplies and provisions without the aid of an interpreter. Again, for diplomatic duty, all other requirements are subservient to the primary qualification of knowledge of a foreign tongue. It has been for the purpose of learning a foreign language that we have struggled mightily with con- jugations, type sentences, and adjectives for three years under the auspices of the Dago Department. French, Spanish, German, and Italian have been for us to choose from. Due to the short time available to the Depart- ment, the criterion has been the ability to speak and not to write the language. How well it has succeeded IS exemplified by the ease with which we conversed with Seiioritas and Mademoiselles on First Class Cruise. " Open de mout ivide, Meestair Geesh! " Comdr. H. H. Crosby Head of Department 56 • • Top Row: lohnson Tortonch Comly Hensel Newton Mcintosh Bottom Row: ' Hunt Douglas Hall McBnde Robert Dupre Biggs ECONOMICS AND GOVERNMENT WHEREVER the naval officer goes, at home or abroad, he is the representative of his government. So he must be thoroughly familiar with its principles and the application of its policies. Equally impor- tant is an understanding of existing economic conditions and their interpretation. To furnish this needed knowledge there has been established the Department of Economics and Government. Second Class year is spent in the study of the government, not only of our own country, but also of the principal foreign powers. The study of the interesting subject of economics is taken up First Class year. Time is also spent on Military Law, which has great professional importance, and Finance, of no less personal importance to an officer. These courses have been interesting as well as beneficial, and are a welcome addition to our curriculum. " AJom;, the marginal i)e?iclibiht)i of B ' s eggs ' Capt. L. B.

Life aboard ship is, of necessity, crowded, and the health of the crew is of paramount importance. It is only by constant use of the principles of hygiene that the men can be kept in a healthful condition. Another application of the knowledge learned here is in the handling of landing forces. The officer in charge must know how to choose a favorable site, how to con- struct the proper type of camp, and how to carry out proper sanitation, not only for the health of the men but for the inhabitants as well. The course at the Academy, consisting of a series of lectures, is short due to lack of time, but one must not lose sight of its importance.

The Physical Training Department plays an important part in offering unlimited opportunity for us to engage in that branch of sport which attracts us most. This is not the only function of the Department. Another that is equally important and which falls in their jurisdiction is the moulding and developing of the Midshipman ' s body. Health and a strong body are necessary for the active Hfe and duty that the Service requires. Again, the Naval Officer is the coach of fleet sports. He learns the rudiments of the sports at the Academy. The high standard of athletics in the Service can be traced back to the Physical Training Department. The first class are taught self defense in order to be able to protect themselves ashore. Thus we are able to enter the Fleet confident of physical competence.

Here is a great place to go for a rest when the pressure of the academics and exams has eased up just a bit. To be more serious, however, the Hospital has as important a part in the making of officers as any other department. The best of the Navy ' s doctors and surgeons are stationed here and given the finest of equipment. To the Midshipman who is sick or injured they bring rapid relief and soon have him on the way to recovery. We gain a feeling of surety and confidence when we remem- ber that there is a splendid establishment within the Yard to look after our physical disabilities and mishaps. The Hospital does its part to see that, when we go out to the Fleet, we are physically fit. " 7 Jo, you cant go on liberty! Tou just came over here. " Capt. E. L. Woods 60 S Capt. H. V. McKittrick Comdr. J. C. Thorn Lt. Comdr. T. A. Hartung (C.E.C.) D BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS P YOU want the snow cleaned off a walk? Do you want Luce Hall decorated? Do you want anything done? Buildings and Grounds will take care of it. The duties of this department are many and varied. To them we owe the beauty of the Yard with its clean cut and well groomed appearance. The neat aspect of the buildings and residences is due to their unceasing labor. Other of their activities which are of special interest to the Regiment are their work in connection with Midshipman entertainments. They are responsible for the scenery used in the shows, constructing and erecting it. The hop decorations are placed there by them. Again, it is they who move the portable bleachers all over the Yard for our comfort at athletic events. Space does not permit a further delineation of their activities but their important part in Academy life is readily apparent. " Batt Office! A(o heat in 4465! " 61 THE CLASS OF KIKE SCHOOL ' S out, and here you see those of us who have thus far weathered the storm. Three hundred and thirty-seven of us, not enough to go around among the first classmen plebe year, came to Annapolis in the summer of thirty-two. Some seventy have left us since then. During our four years at the Academy, we have watched great changes take place in the life of the midshipmen, under the guidance of two able Superin- tendents. The plebes, as usual, have gotten away with it ever since we yelled, " T ' aint no mo ' plebes! " and became pink-cheeked third classmen. Second class summer, spent at the Academy, has become a picnic of leisure. When we have recounted the enjoyable privileges of our first class year to those who have been graduated before us, they wish they were mid- shipmen again. First class cruise, we became steam profs and expounded to the voungsters the vagaries R. R. Pratt Secretiir ' Treasurer O. G, Sexton President 62 T E E H T H I R r r ' S I X of evaporators and the skinny of turbines. No more does the first class take a cruise on the Reina Met ' cedes for smoking m the corridors. The days of furtive radio playing during study hour, with a hand on the switch, are over, for the criterion of disturbance is whether we disturb anyone. The monthly requisi ' tion IS passe for the first class; " Charge it, " and our credit is good at the midshipmen ' s store. Two dollars a month to have a corridor boy clean up our room? Charge that, too! How many times we have listened to the time-worn phrase, " JSjovv, when 1 was a Midshipman. . . . " So, it IS with some regret (but not much) that we leave Bancroft Hall and four years of pleasant fellow- ship behind us, to try our hand at the art of being better naval officers. Some day, one of us will command the Fleet. Let ' s see who it is. . . . G. W. Grider Vice-President 63 THE CLASS OF H I Ji E WE RELIEVE you, gentlemen. " Down the years these words come ringing, an echo from generations of Naval Academy graduations. Now, in the spring of 1936, it is our turn to say them to the last class that is to precede us into the Fleet. The three years that have passed since we entered the Academy have been filled with a world of experiences. A plebe summer that was made up of little but drills, and a plebe year that seemed infinite in length, then youngster cruise, youngster year, and this last academic year, all have passed by m rapid succession, each bringing something more in the pat- tern of Academy life. Thirty-Seven has had its tribula- tions along with its tributes, its condemnations with Its commendations. Wherever we may have failed we shall try doubly hard to succeed, that our class will A. W. Rich Secretary-Treasurer L. V. Julihn President 64 T E E K THIRTT ' SEVE7s[ leave one small measure of itself to be added to the wealth of heritage and tradition which defines an alma mater. The Naval Academy and all that it represents have become a part of us, and it is fitting that we should want ourselves to become a part of it. All the oft-repeated routine, the recitations, drills, leaves, have burned themselves into our hearts, but it is a rare privilege to have been so wounded. So, while the hand of Time shuffles another class into the Fleet, it shuffles us into our first position of real responsibility, as we take charge and try to run a regiment of midshipmen. We hope that we have proved our ability to assume it, and with the surging high ambitions of Youth, we hope for a success surpassing any thus far achieved. And, meanwhile, we strive to acquaint ourselves with the principles of a Service we are learning to love R. A. Smith Vice-President 65 THE CLASS OF NINE HERE we are at the half-way point of our careers as midshipmen, and our whole life seems to have been bound up in wondering about the future. All plebe summer we wondered about ac year. All first term of that year we wondered if we really would carry on if we beat Army. Then we worried about how hard it would be to brace up after Christmas. Shortly after, the first term ended and some of us ceased to worry about the Navy at all. Then began the second term, and we speculated about certain mysterious events involving the return of white cap covers. When we were finally shown about that, we immediately started asking ourselves whether that girl was really coming out for June Week. A few stray ponderings on the cruise manifested themselves around this time. Then the time came, and we found ourselves, many of us J. E. Dacey Secretary-Treasurer F. D. Case, Jr. President 66 r E E K THIRTT ' EIGHT for the first time, on board ship. We spent the summer wondering about leave, both shore and Sep. Now we ' re youngsters, and we ' ve practically stopped worrying and wondering. We don ' t have time any more. Those of us who are not pulling sat are doing their best to stay in that blessed state. Oh, well, some of us may beat the law of averages; it seems to have been done before. To Thirty-Six, who have reached the end of their worries as midshipmen and are about to start tearing their hair in earnest, we extend our thanks for starting us on our way plebe summer and for making youngster cruise a real experience instead of a nightmare. The best of luck is our wish for the future for you, and we ' ll be seeing you in two years. C. D. Brown Vice-President 67 THE CLASS OF H I H E ' 40 WILL come when ' 36 goes — and we will be ratey youngsters. Eight hundred of us, the largest class since 1927, have been taken from our native haunts and welded into a unit. After that first haircut it was, " Keep next to the bulkhead. Mister, going up that ladder, " and we were really in. The trials of plebe summer appeared practically insurmountable, but somehow we stumbled along and then academic year descended upon us. At first it was a nightmare of " Man the boards, " " Brace up, " and other bewildering but common phrases. Soon, however, the light filtered through and we began to know the ropes. Bright spots in the fall were those moments when, with the band thundering out " Anchors Aweigh, " we swung on to a foreign field as part of The Regiment. Win or lose, we were proud to be there. Christmas leave and ten fleeting days with the 68 r E E H THIRTT ' NINfi people back home. There we were not plebes but Midshipmen and experienced that peculiar pride as one of the chosen few. Then mid-semesters which we somehow faltered through. Sat if not Savvy. The new term, but this time down the stretch. Visions of the cruise and the coveted ' long diag ' grew brighter every day. " Masqueraders " and our iirst drag, tempting spring days and the eternal spring fever fighting every inch of the way with the ever present 2.5. Finally, June Week. The magnificent finale to our first year. A riot of color and action and then, " No mo ' plebes. " ' 39 has jumped a step and one fourth of our apprenticeship is done. The trials of plebe year are done and we move forward and upward. And so, with one last backward glance, on to the cruise and youngster year. 69 ex BIOGRAPHIES ciyAjz eAHHiJui ■:-.-i ;.

In spite ot this, in 1890 pacifistic opposition in Congress led to the construction of ships with low freeboard, this reasoning being based upon the supposition that they would be incapable of carrying on an overseas, and hence imperialistic war. However, the Oregon, one of these ships, demonstrated by her famous voyage around the Horn, and the difficulties encountered therein, the urgent need for sea-going ships if only for coast defense, and the result was the fleet of 1908 which was not only capable of, but made the historic cruise around the world. ssssssss • The sextant, the most funda- mental instrument of navi- gation, had Its origin in the cross staff of the Middle Ages.

Not even the Navy could fully satisfy him, however. His love ot boats has sent him wandering down toward Spa Creek every time a strange boat dropped her hook there, and his love of travel has sent him winding down the Ohio and Mississippi during his leaves. Dave has had to plug pretty hard with his studies, but his cheerful determination has never de- serted him nor caused us to be unduly concerned over his eventual success. Old " Hotshot " is a real gentle- man and the sort ot friend a man can always de pend upon.

Since, he has acquired a great love for boats that is surpassed only by the sight of the hills. We shall always respect his kind, easygoing, sensible manner which has brought so many friends.

Academics hold no terror for him; his lazy wives have dragged him down with them and he hasn ' t cracked a book in four years. Slim ' s love of athletics has sent him booting a soccer ball every fall and devoting each spring to his ruling passion: javelin throwing. Sincere and earnest in all he does and with a serious outlook on life, G.B. can work or play without keeping one eye cocked on the clock. He doesn ' t make friends too readily, but when he does, they stick for life. When you learn to accept his earnestness and sincerity, you ' ll find in G.B. a good shipmate and a real friend forever.

Academically, Mac attains the maximum results with minimum ex ' pended efforts. It is often necessary to quell his exuber- ances of humor by resorting to lethiferous devices. His boast is that in the three years following gradua- tion, he ' ll make a million (probably puns).

Though Charles- ton ' s famous son forsook the military life at Citadel for the salty tang of the sea, we can find no trace of anything but pure Navy in his makeup. To sit opposite him in the late hours of evening study hour and be interrupted by revolutionary sketches of aircraft gives one a sense of witnessing genius in the bud. It is certain that he has genius for making friends; and particu- larly is he the favorite of plebes, who gain surcease from gloom when they come to visit. His ship- mates in the Fleet will find him an agreeable and helpful companion.

Originally called DemoIogo5, she was renamed Fulton the First when the famous inventor died of overwork in attempting to improve portions of her design. Com ' pleted too late to participate in the War of 181 2, her only activity of a purely naval character was the firing of a 21 gun salute to Fort Columbus on Governors = ' plosion in 1829, but ships of a similar design soon began —————— to appear, and in a few decades prosaic steam had displaced romantic sails upon the seas. wf mm y f.f - V P L IE B E YEAR We are admitted To walk the last mile- We had to row And sail the cutters Not to mention infantry — 346 • Everything has an end.

Prof. Crosley Choirmaster r THE Choir is composed of midshipmen who love music and derive pleasure from singing. Therefore, the success attained comes from work that is a pleasure, and all choir members feel that the hours put in on practice are times well spent. Add to that a certain sense of satisfaction arising from the remarks our non- member colleagues are wont to make concerning the drills choir practice keeps us away from, and it will not be hard to appreciate what it is that develops our loyalty to the organization. Professor Cr osley has worked with and for the Choir for many years and out of his efforts to secure its recognition came last year the in- auguration of annual trips to Washington to sing there in the beautiful National Cathedral. Our contribution to the Cathedral service on the sixteenth of February this year was flatteringly received. Those of us who leave this year will miss the delight of helping with our Chapel services.

Burkart Director Lt. (j.g.) W. S. Pye, Jr. Coach FOR the Combined Musical Clubs ' Show of 1936 we depart from former customs and present the musical comedy " Her Highness Regrets " with words, lines and music written by midshipmen. Much credit goes to our talented author, Edleson, who originated the theme of the comedy and wrote most of the lines. The musical success lies in the untiring efforts of our gifted song writers and arrangers, Wood, Cooper, Small, and Lt. Sima. The Executive Department gave to us as officer representative, Lt. Pye, a man willing to devote every spare moment of his time toward assisting in the success of the show. But to find one who could mold all of these individual acts and talents into a musical show, we turn to our capable director, Burkart. " Her Highness Regrets " is the story of a broken-down kingdom, Cziegramia, ruled by a dowager queen. Janney depicted the part to perfection. The princess, played by Fuller, returns from an American college unaware of the predicament of her country. But upon realizing the situation, she finds that she no longer has to marry a prince, but can wed her American lover. Much excitement follows during scenes with Admiral Shovoffsky, Winne, the clown of ' 36; Count Antipasto de Ra viola and Count de Trop, Ferret and deLaurel; and our HER HIGHJiESS REGRETS S. K. Edleson Author E. W. Wood, Jr. Musical Composer hero. Sterling Brown, and comic, J. Andrew Brown, acted by Hulson and Brown. Following an interesting apron skit, we are taken to a chamber where the queen is giving a cocktail party. Every kingdom has its drinking song, and so naturally Cziegramia gives us " Drink to the Queen. " During this scene our comic takes a little too much of the national drink, Mud ' nyi, and makes a statement that gets the queen very angry. In the second act we are shown the same cocktail room modernized. The N. A. Ten gives us fitting music and a dance chorus provides entertainment, as well as the song by the girl who claims she is the " hottest girl in Cdegramia. " While the entertainment is progressing, the queen forgives the comic, and, after doing a very comic jig with him, we see the show close by hearing the grand chorus sing the drinking song. Professor Crosley and Mr. Pease graciously gave us assistance in lines and music criticisms. We wish also to express our appreciation for the cooperation of Lt. Sima toward the orchestrations and musical effects. All in all the members of the Combined Musical Clubs hope that you enjoyed the comedy as much as they enjoyed pre- senting it. Americanized Cziegramia 403 THE N. A. TEN I W. A. Sma Leader THE easiest and most interesting way to understand the point of view of a pre-war model saxaphone player is to eat an ear of corn, using both hands. This idea has but recently come into being and gained popularity. Suifice it to say that the Ten has a desirable deficiency of such talent. The type of music developed by our band is that which is pleasing to happy and contented ears. The idea of the men in the band to get someplace m the world of modern music has led to that Naval Academy expression, " not on your Tentype. " As a rule, discontented people like classical music, while happy beings prefer jazz; consequently the Ten has attempted to bring out the best in its listeners, using the jazz route. It has often been said that jazz is a mad man ' s music. Be that as it may, we have enjoyed working together during the past year and we hope our occa ' sional listeners have found pleasure in our renditions. In closing, a bit of conversation obtained indirectly by the keyhole route would undoubtedly be of interest: Prior to a brief public appearance of the Ten, one of our loyal supporters was heard to say, " Have the Ten play three numbers, and, have them play before I get there !

Amme, Jr. Conductor THE concert before Christmas proved to be a very definite turning point in the existence of the orchestra. Its splendid rendition of ' Bolero, " " Wintergreen for President, " and " New Moon " were particularly acclaimed by the midshipmen and their friends. Even the more dubious ones whose enjoyment of music is not too pronounced, and who attended the concert only on the advice of their more cultured " drags, " readily admitted that the program was the " tops. " The colossal success of the Musical Clubs Show spelled crescendo for the popularity of the orchestra. Here it played the scores in a manner that would please the immortal Victor Herbert and picked up its cues so that both Gilbert and Sullivan would have applauded, had they been privileged to hear it. The double forte, the crowning point, came with the June Week concert. Ot course, all expected that, and none were disappointed. The playing of " March Slav " and " Kamenoi Ostrow " proved, once and for all, that the midshipmen can reach even the highest levels in an art not generally associated with their technical education.

In short order they will have you humming to their strumming,and will carry you away to other lands. The efforts of the club have always been toward providing the Regiment with a variety of music of the soothing sort, mi.xed with the rock and roll of rhythm, and to help make the annual Musical Clubs Show one of the outstanding accomplishments of the midshipmen ' s activities. The members of the club always show much enthusiasm over the prospects of a new musical year. Once a person has been in the club for even a short period, he will always try to remain, and in nearly every case will be in the starting lineup for the years to follow. All this is definite evidence of a friendly, practical organization. The large variety of stringed instruments gives many musical opportunities and a chance for all hands to exhibit their wares and develop their talents. Clubs like this turn idle and monot- onous moments into musical memories of happy harmony. Carter Joyce Groves Payne Hattan Whalen Parker Albert 406 THE GLEE CLUB W. C. Johnson Leader HEY, who let you in here? " " Let ' s sing ' My Heart Stood Still. ' " " Aw, nuts, that was no good. What about The Blue Danube " or the ' Rosary ' ? " " Come on, come on, sit down and pipe down! " — So starts another year for the Glee Club. From this hectic beginning with new and inexperienced voices, and an un- tried and nervous leader, time and practice finally build a finished machine capable of performing well in every field of choral music. Beginning with the Orchestra-Glee Club Recital of ' 35 ' s June Week, this year ' s work broadened its scope to include several new fields of entertainment. The Ninetieth Anniversary Broadcast was a surprise engagement and required hurried rehearsals, but the results were gratifying and the experience worthwhile. Christmas Dinner saw the group ' s first attempt at popular music in cooperation with the N.A. 10. Well received, it brought its reward m greater appreciation from the Regiment. As always, the Mu- sical Clubs Show represented the climax of our efforts. You who read this will know that our ambitions have brought the great results they promised. For its members, enjoyment is their reason, achievement their ob- jective. Their own interest, ability, and efforts determine the measure of their success. 1 5[Wft «V I V 1 j B i B BfiF ' .aHMka - ' Second Row: Brown Bottom Row: Top Row: Syverson Harmon Keen Reigart Dudley Lewis Becker Johnson Ginn Rile Bartol Anderson Bamvard Third Row: Hemingway Dunn Ballou Smeja Renfro Hams Brown Johnson Wood Elwood Chilton Oldfield 407 THE MAS QUERADERS PRESENT J. H. Janney President Prof. Royal S. Pease Coach TOURING February of each year, directly following first term exams, the Masqueraders make their con- - ' - tnbution to the welfare of the Naval Academy and its inmates. This contribution is in the form of a play which is presented with a smoothness and finish worthy of professionals. It provides something differ ' ent in the way of entertainment for a Regiment recuperating from a siege of examinations. For the plebes it provides the first authorized opportunity to drag and initiates them to " snaking. " This year the Masqueraders produced a comedy, mystery detective thriller — a combination hard to beat — and needless to say, the result was highly satisfactory from every point of view. Yes, " The Bishop Misbehaves " with George Winne in the title role was " plenty good. " The action of the play takes place in the taproom of an English " pub " (Public House is the proper name — so says the Bishop) and in the hall of the Bishop ' s palace. The Bishop of Broad ' minister and his sister, Lady Emily, stop by accident at this pub and stumble into the middle of an honest to goodness robbery and mystery. Now, truth to tell, the Bishop is an ardent follower of detective fiction and i " Beefsteak, milord? " 408 THE BISHOP MISBEHAVES Lt. (j.g-) J- F- Newman Officer Representative M.J. Smith Director he welcomes this chance to exercise his " quick and ingenious mmd " in the interests of justice. As one might expect, some rather tickHsh and very entertaining situations arise as a natural result. But as also might be ex- pected, the outcome is all for the good. It is to be regretted that the entire audience of such a performance as this cannot also be present to see the rehearsals, for many of the really humorous bits of action often occur only during the " practice runs. " As usual, most of the constructive work was initiated by Professor Pease while the wheels of progress m relation to the Executive Department were oiled by Lieutenant Newman, the Olficer Representative. For once the Masqueraders succeeded m procuring a play requiring a change of scenery — thus getting even with the Stage Gang who claim to do all the work but who heretofore had actually done almost as little as the Juice Gang, who seem to do nothing beyond turning the Hghts on and off. This good- natured, three-cornered feud is one of long standing, but, as could be seen from the results, all hands cooperated to give the rest of the Regiment some really worthwhile entertainment. " Hands up, all of you! " 409 THE PROPERTY GANG I T. C. Lyster Property Manager CCENE: Admiral ' s Reception . . . " Goodbye, Mrs. Sellers, and now if you dont mind the gang will ta e along with them your Tea Service and four Silver Vases. " That will give you an idea of the sort of work the Property Gang has to do. Our motto is, " Don ' t buy what you can borrow. " Most of it is accomplished long before the production reaches the audience, and includes place and form utility of all props, no matter the size or shape. The audience never sees a member of the gang unless it is a mistake, still it forms an integral part of the production, and upon it depends a good share of the success of the show. Although the work is hard and consumes many free afternoons, everyone on the gang enjoys it. The experience we gain in procuring and taking care of women ' s clothes will undoubtedly stand us in good stead some day. You will never hear a grumble when the order comes to fry an egg for the hero ' s breakfast — all accomplished in spite of the diffi- culties presented by a can of Sterno and a midshipman ' s limited knowledge of the culinary art. If the show is a success we have more than received our reward. i Fyfe Herkness Bennett Lyster Bryant i 410 THE BUSINESS GANG W. A. Ellis Business Mundger " V 7HAT the hub of the wheel is to the outer tire, the Business Gang is to many of the non-athletic, ' extra-curricular activities here at the Naval Academy. This group of men begin to cultivate their gray hairs as soon as the Academic Year begins and never let up until Sep Leave starts. By that time they are either bald from worry or unsat in eyes from trying to meet the demands placed upon them and still make the blue ink predominate on the balance sheet. To take care of the advertising, programs, publicity, contracts, and all the supplies that are always needed for the Masqueraders and Musical Clubs shows is quite a task in itself, but when the issuing of tickets and managing of the ushering at all of the shows and recitals given each year is combined with demands of the supporting organizations, a truck load of trouble is inevitable. One wonders what the gang gets out of all this ... the joy of leaving a job well done with a clean record to start the next season on, as well as a host of outside contacts and interests to ease the toils of Academic Year. Tucker Gardes Ellis Barkley 411 THE STAGE GANG S. G. Shilling Stage Manager VXyHAT goes on behind the scenes? What group is better able to answer that than the Stage Gang? They undertake any task, large or small, directly or indirectly connected with their work. " Stage, we need a prompter. " " Stage, send down to the dressing room for the Chorus. " " The Prop Gang can ' t find the gun for the next act. Find it. Stage. " These are some of the tasks indirectly connected with their work that they are called upon to perform. Quickly and silently the scenery must be shifted between acts. There is a thunderstorm during this act. The Stage Gang will take care of that. But along with the work there is pleasure. The Stage Gang has its own room where the members can get together for a chat, a game of cards, or cook themselves a little java. This dingy little room presents a friendly atmosphere to all who enter. The Stage Gang has been a permanent extra-curricular organization for many years and as long as it tends to promote friendliness, cooperation, and good work it will continue to be one of the strong, silent forces behind the show.

The lure of the unknown, you know. For really, half the time we don ' t know what our signs are going to look like until we get them hoisted. Sometimes we don ' t even know they ' ll work until then. But at that, we ' re occasionally up on the Regiment, for often, even when they see them in their finished state they can ' t tell what the signs are supposed to represent. However, signs are only one phase of our endeavors. The other important phase consists of lighting the stage and furnishing all sorts of effects, from moonlight to fireplaces. So — " Cut lights!

The Movie Gang is new among the groups at the Academy that strive to make the Regiment ' s few leisure hours pass more enjoyably. Organized this year for the specific purpose of showing news reels and short subjects weekly with their new sound projection equipment, the gang has branched into other fields. Encouragement of amateur photography and movie taking has been one aim of the gang. The group took over the task of pro- viding records for the new radio-phonograph that has served to put new life in Recreation Hall. The domain of the gang is S moke Hall, where their equipment for the entertainment of the Regiment is located, but the interest m and discussion of photography, the swapping of pictures, the small talk of filters, exposures, film densities, f ' s and V.S. ' s, Scheiners, Dins, and other topics of mystery to the uninitiated goes on daily in the Hall. A little " juice, " a little " skinny, " a little showmanship, and a lot of fun.

Here we talk to brother amateurs the world over via our own amateur station W3ADO, we build sets in our workshop, we take the bugs out of the Thompson Stadium public address system, we string antennas to the dismay of Bancroft Hall and we chase the elusive high frequencies in many places. Some of our ultra-high frequency experiments are a marvel to behold. We are an ambitious and enterprising group and do our best to send men to the Fleet with a working knowledge of radio. So with our fun and our labor comes a congenial fellowship, a fraternal spirit hard to beat, based on our hobby — Amateur Radio.

Wearied by ■ ■ - almost two years of work and planning, but secretly a little proud to see the completed product before us, we can only sigh prayerfully and say, " We hope you like it! " Our brainchild has had a stormy and checkered career — even from the outset when as bewildered youngsters we turned our attention to the mass of details before us. We were appalled at the idea of filling up some five hundred pages with copy and of administering a $20,000 concern. But we soon found no scarcity of hands to help us spend that small fortune. We listened patiently to the persuasions of nimble- tongued salesmen and waded through reams of testi- monials.

So we sat and we pondered and we smoked and we did very little — though our final decisions were fortunate ones. The hearty cooperation and shrewd advice of our con- tracting firm.s have proved invaluable. What would we have done without them? Picking out the staffs was our next job. Varied talents, varied temperaments, varied degrees of initiative and capacity turned us into psychologists as well as publishers. It wasn ' t till we took departure and started charting our course over these 500 pages that the fur really began to fly.

The circulation experts turned their persuasive powers on prospective buyers. The business staff checked their figures, and the editors of the several sections of the book launched into their tasks with vigor.

Hunter President ' I ' HE Trident Society was founded in 1924 for the purpose of promoting authorship at the Naval Academy - and for collecting and preserving Naval literature. When the staff of 1936 took up the reins where they had been let fall, it pledged itself to further the purpose and ideals of the society, and it has worked hard to fulfill its promise. The publication of The Trident, its magazine and first consideration, has been continued. A revision of The Boo}{ of H ivy Songs has been undertaken. This is the most widely circulated of the Trident Society ' s publications, but since its original publication in 1926, many of the songs have gone into disuse, and many new songs have become popular. The new edition should prove even more popular and useful than the first. Moreover, a second edition of Anchors Aweigh has been prepared. Like its predecessor, the success of which enabled the society to begin its publications, the new Anchors Au ' eigh is a collection of Naval Academy poems. It is hoped that this new edition will find favor equal to that of the first. A rather successful effort has also been made to revive the regular meetings of the society.

Lovell Editor THE Staff of the 1935-1936 Reef Points embarked on the pubUcation of their book with the avowed in tention of compiling the " saiHng direction " so necessary to those who would chart an untroubled course through the maze of traditions, slang, and organizations which surround the Naval Academy. As usual it was intended primarily for the use of the new plebes, but the interests of our many friends far beyond the gray walls who wouldn ' t know a " red mike " from a " yard engine " or Misery Hall from the Hospital were in our minds as we wrote. How well we achieved our aim may be seen by the ease with which we sold an edition twice as large as any of those of recent years. This year we scrapped all cuts of old ships and brought The Navy up to date, including pictures of some of our latest fighting aircraft. Then for those slightly unsat in their knowledge of military insignia, we included pictures of Naval, Army, and Marine Corps officers in- signia, and a page of the various staff corps emblems. The members of the Class of ' 36 are still arguing as to whether we had the right dope on the wearing of class rings, but we don ' t mind — we ' re wearing ours just as we would have, had we never written the article.

Dockum President TN A body as large as the Regiment of Midshipmen there is represented nearly every type and degree of - - creative talent. Those who have the natural knack or acquired ability to draw or paint and have the desire for mutual support, helpful criticism or encouragement find that a group of persons striving toward the same goal is the answer to this desire. This is the field of the Art Club. This year, as every year, the main inspira ' tion for these would-be artists has been the illustrations required for the Log and Trident and the rush orders for posters for the spring dramatics of the Masqueraders, Musical Clubs Show and Navy Relief Show. Coupled with this more or less evident need for drawing is the recreational diversion which working with pastels, water colors, or charcoal affords during those few moments available throughout the year. Each season, of the new members added, some are adept at use of brush or pencil to begin with, while others are in the category of most of us — occasional dabblers who experience an exhilarating thrill of satisfaction with the last line of our latest effort to emulate Michelangelo, Rubens, Corot, or perhaps — Petty !

WiUman Chairman ' nO DESIGN a crest that would symbolize our class, that was the imposing task allotted to eight of us - - early plebe year. No sooner had the committee been selected than a maze of designs began to arrive from various jewelry firms. Scarcely any of these appealed to us and consequently we called for more and, at the same time, tried to produce some ourselves. Eventually we found four that seemed good; they were sub- mitted to the class for a vote — no sale ! Again we called for more designs, criticized the old ones, adding here, and erasing there until finally another set was ready. The class accepted one this time, one which had been submitted with the first set and had since undergone considerable alteration. The crest accepted was originally designed by a man on the committee. Its alteration and improvement were brought about by the committee as a whole. It is essentially a product of the class and not merely an idea adapted from some outside source. The crest originated in the class, and now, embodied in our rings as a constant reminder, let it stand for power, precision, and dependability as symbolized by the turret. THE HOP COMMITTEE j. B. Icenhower Chairman ' I ' O MAKE every hop just something more than a hop, to make each dance something more to be antici- -■- pated — that is the endeavor of this carefully selected group of upperclassmen. Here is a group that admirably blends work with play. The activities of these men vary from having the honor of receiving at a hop with the wife of one of the officers at the Naval Academy to retrieving lost gadgets and midshipmen. These committeemen effect the growing pleasure experienced at the hops for it is they who have worked to improve the music to the fine-sounding and colorful dance tunes that we now have at the hops. It is they who look after such things as refreshments, decorations, and the maze of arrangements. The zenith of the year ' s work was the executing of the June Week dances which made a June Week second to none. Beginning with the Regimental 1-2-3 with Paramount as our brilliant guest to that scintillating kaleidoscope, the June Ball, with the fine new music, and those magnificent programs so judiciously filled out, the most colorful week of our lives passes.

S. Seaman Commodore N THE twenty-fifth of February, 1936, the Naval Academy Boat Club was founded, and since that date - has grown by leaps and bounds until now there are over three hundred members enrolled. The idea of the club was not new this year, as many boating fans in our class and other classes had tried before to start one. Admiral Sellers gave us our start, drew up our sailing directions, and best of all furnished us with four fifty-foot motor sailers to be used by the club members on all day cruises and week-ends. Under this stimulus the interest and enthusiasm in the Regiment was unbounded. The purpose of the club is to advance profes- sional knowledge through providing additional training facilities for midshipmen in boat building, operation and repair of power plants, the operation, sailing and handling of vessels, in piloting and general seamanship, and to provide recreation and encourage interest in water-borne craft. In order to obtain our four new boats, which were built in the Norfolk Navy Yard, a ten man crew was selected from each battalion to go down to Norfolk on the destroyer and sail the boats back. What a salty cruise that was • Top Row: Brown Combs Greene Jackson Clark Robinson McGrath Mahoney Hattan Gay Stimson Preston Kaufman Middle Row: Hirschberger Lawrence Nash Humes Seaman Hall Bottom Row: Munson Merryman Kramer Reed Thompson McNitt Morton Yoho Crowell Johnston Gulliver 429 THE CHRISTMAS CARD COMMITTEE R. C. Morton Chairman ' I ' HE choice and selection of the Regimental Christmas Card annually is entrusted to the Christmas Card - - Committee. This choice must be one that embodies a true Christmas Spirit with something symbolic of the Naval Academy. Not easy to incorporate in one card, are those two. Then, too, the criticisms of the Regiment, immediate friends, and those who receive it as an official greeti ng from the Academy must be con ' sidered. Many long hours of valued week-ends were spent by the committee with interviews and suggestions. Second Class June Week found the designs approved, company chosen, and contract awarded. During the summer the proofs were completed, and our return to Annapolis found the card ready for its final critical examination. Numerous small changes were made and October found it well under way toward completion. But the tasks didn ' t end there. It was still necessary to distribute and collect for them. The fact that the de- mand far exceeded the expectations of even the most optimistic was indeed gratifying, and the final computa- tion proved that the work of the committee had not been in vain. The Regiment voiced its admiration and satisfaction by its ready acceptance, and words of commendation from many points far distant were more than acceptable. Shetenhelm Williams Morton Hotfman Brown Wagner Gillette 430 8 • • • • = THE PEP COMMITTEE J. W. Moreau Chairman THE Pep Committee, as the name does not imply, consists of a group of first classmen behind the guns of loyalty, spirit, and enthusiasm. The Regiment has become known throughout the country as having the most colorful cheering section m the nation. Our card stunts and novel presentation of cheers and tricks which have earned us this reputation can be directly traced to the work of the Pep Committee. Many an afternoon a group of scattered workers would be found in 4002 toiling away with graph paper, colored crayons, and dope cards. It ' s no wonder that Moreau and the boys could be seen at the halves in front of the Navy stands literally tearing their hair wondering whether or not their pet trick s would work out. Many a football man has been heard to say that he would rather be on the Pep Committee than the bench. Those Friday nights in Philadelphia, New Haven, etc., made us an envied lot, but it wasn ' t all fun with no work — " for Sir, there ' s lots of work to be done.

King, Jr. President WITHOUT a doubt, the work and significance of the Naval Academy Christian Association is best re vealed by its last official act of the year, when all the members of the graduating class receive Bibles. The purpose of this Bible is to serve as a constant reminder, and source of inspiration for the maintenance of a Christian spirit in all the various phases of a Naval life. This, then, is the fundamental goal of the Naval Academy Christian Association during our four years at the Academy. And by providing a means of frequent and close contact with a zealous chaplain, by weekly meetings with prominent and experienced men in other walks of life, as well as our own, as speakers, by making available to all members of the Regiment current literature, and in general ever seeking to provide that cultural and religious side so necessary to a well ' tounded character, the Association strives to attain its goal. Only if the ideals and traditions of the Navy of the past, and of the Navy of the present can be carried over, undiminished, into the Navy of the future, can we feel that God has smiled upon our efforts.

Anybody interested m pubhc speaking, either in the talking or listening end of things, is eligible to join. Come up, give a speech, and you ' re automatically a member. The object of the Quarter Deck is to teach midshipmen to give direct interesting speeches such as naval ofiicers are constantly required to do. The activities of the Society during the first term are devoted to learning how to speak. Each speech is informally criticized by the audience. Some of the meetings are enlivened by impromptu and " heckling " talks. The learning of the first term is put to practical use during the second in the Public Speaking Contest. The finals of this contest are one of the June Week " musts. " People come from all over to listen to the simple polished speeches. Last year the judges: a college president, a state senator, and an under-secretary of state, unanimously agreed the speeches were as good as any they had ever heard. Anyone coming to the meetings just naturally learns to speak; and the more scared the potential Demosthenes is, the more the Society will welcome him.

H. Patterson Chdirmdn ' VXTITH hundreds of college athletes visiting the Academy each month, it is no small task in importance ' ' or size to receive and entertain these teams. The undertaking of this duty is the work of the Recep- tion Committee. Members of the committee are excused from drill by the Executive Department and from week-end liberty by themselves, in order to meet and entertain the visiting athletes. The impression that the visitors obtain is spread throughout the country; it is valuable to the Academy and to the Service; it must be the true impression, a good impression. Though the conveniences are not what one would find at an hotel, the visiting athletes are made as comfortable as possible. To the members of the Committee comes the oppor- tunity of making new friends and learning what life in the great outside is like. First hand experience in tact is afforded as part of the job of creating mutual good feeling among the many colleges and schools represented during the course of the year. The work of the Reception Committee is being recognized more and more each year as one of the more important and desirable non-athletic activities in the Academy.

Hamilton and his capable aides would be unable to cope with when the 1935 season rolled across the horizon. However, with a determination and patience that was rewarded by the fine performance of a comparatively green Navy squad, these men produced a team that the Regiment of Midship- men will long remember as one of the most spectacular and versatile football teams that has represented the Naval Academy in many years. With Captain Robertshaw, one of the finest centers in the country, left to bolster up the line, and two excellent guar ds in Cole and Morrell, Lt. Hamilton fitted together a line that yielded little ground to the opposition all season. In the backfield only two holdovers from the 1934 combination re- mained, Pratt, at quarterback, and King, at halfback. Into the shoes vacated by the All- American, Buz: Borries, stepped Schmidt, another brilliant runner, who combined this quality with that of punting, and left nothing to be desired • " » Robertshaw Shaw 31 • IT Army blocking 442 Top Row: Bottom Row: Byng Miller Cross Schwab Hamilton Wilson FOOTBALL in either job. Bill Clark ' s position at fullback was filled by Case, a hard-running back and a splendid defensive player. With these men holding down the key positions the Blue and Gold hoisted anchor for the 1935 football campaign. And campaign may it well be called, for on the horizon of each successive Saturday loomed the bulwarks of nine major teams in the country. The out- come of the schedule remained to be seen, and the Regiment, to a man, felt that the success or failure of the team was in their hands. The Luc}{y Bag joins the Regiment in extending thanks and appreciation to the " B " squad for the services given to further the play of the varsity. No group of men sacrificed more than did this group, and received less recogni- tion. It is the spirit of the Navy exemplified in sports — the will to better the organization. An outside schedule of games was arranged with other college teams. The games produced good football, and served to liven up the enthu- siasm for the members of the squad. Meyer to Grove for 80 yards Soballe Janney Another score Vogel Cole WILLIAM AND MARY ' " T ' HE opening game of the season saw the new Navy team steamroller - William and Mary into submission, 30-0. The superior man-power of the Blue and Gold more than offset the bitter fight the Virginians offered. The first quarter resulted in much fumbling by both teams when on the offensive. Near the end of the period a long pass from Pratt to King gave Navy its first scoring opportunity, and after being held for three downs, Bull stepped back and split the uprights for a perfect placement. A new Navy team took the field in the second quarter, but not until the period was well advanced did this outfit begin to function. Thomas carried the ball across for the first touchdown and Fike converted shortly before the half ended. The third and fourth quarters were distinctly all Navy with Fellows sweeping across the goal on a reverse in the third quarter. The final two scores came in quick succession during the last quarter. Wilsie carried the hall across for the first, and the final tally resulted from a pass, Wilsie to Antrim, with the youngster back scoring standing up. No stopping liini Navy begins early MERCER IN THE second game of the season Navy turned back Mercer University, 27-0. All the scoring was done in the first half, while Coach Hamilton ex- perimented with various combinations during the second half. The brilliantly garbed Georgians were in trouble soon after the opening kick-off. The Blue and Gold surged down the field, mixing running plays with passes. Thomas, standing on his 39-yard line, tossed a short pass to Antrim who dashed away to cross the goal line. Fike kicked the extra point. The second score in the first period resulted from the same passing combination of Thomas and Antrim. The pass and run covered 70 yards, and again Fike converted. At the beginning of the second quarter a new Navy team took the field and promptly continued the scoring. Pratt ' s pass from the Mercer ' s 24-yard line to Fellows produced the third touchdown, and again, a Pratt pass, this time from the 5-yard line, to Schmidt, resulted in the final tally. Cole kicked the extra point. The second half was a repetition of the first, less the scoring. The Navy teams completely dominated the field. Ferrara A bit ot line play 445 yards to a touchdown VIRGINIA Fike Soucek ' VJAVY ' S football squad put on the finishing touches to the celebration of - ' - the ninetieth anniversary of the founding of the Naval Academy by turning back the University of Virginia before a gala crowd of over 10,000 people. The game was bitterly fought with Virginia holding the lead, 7-6, at the half. The most sensational play of the game turned the tide for the Blue and Gold, when Schmidt returned the opening kick-off to begin the second half for a touchdown. Taking the ball on the 12-yard stripe, the Navy back dashed 88 yards to score. Virginia turned in a beautiful touchdown play for its score. Standing on his 3-yard line, Martin passed to Males, who lateral-passed the ball to Leys, and Leys romped the remaining distance for the score. The play, a 97-yard touchdown, sent the Virginians off to the lead. During the last half the Sailors smashed across for three more tallies. Be- sides Schmidt ' s brilliant run, Thomas and Antrim counted, the latter on a pass from Wilsie, and Thomas plunged over right through tackle. Final score: Navy, 26; Virginia, 7. Pratt tires one A show tor Old Ell YALE VISITING New England for the first time, Navy met her first defeat of the season at the hands of Yale University by the slender margin of one point — the extra point after touchdown. Playing on a foreign field the Blue and Gold appeared unsettled and nerv- ous during the opening half. Yale quickly took advantage of the lapse, and sent Hessberg, on a reverse from the Navy 20-yard line, across for a touchdown early in the first quarter. Gardiner place-kicked the extra point that was to mean victory at the end of the game. Captain Robertshaw rallied his ailing forces, and the rest of the first half was evenly fought. Navy came roaring out to start the second half, and m little more than five minutes had scored a touchdown. The Blue and Gold smashed down the field using straight football, and punched over from the 3-yard line. Continuing to use entire new teams as replacements. Coach Hamilton kept the pressure on the Elis throughout the rest of the game. However, Yale repulsed four at- tacks within their 15-yard line, protecting their slender lead. Yale, 7; Navy, 6. The start of a long one King Pratt 447 Schmidt Case King for a first down NOTRE DAME ' " T ' WO sharp thrusts, both aerials, coming in rapid succession in the second - quarter spelled the end of Navy ' s two-year reign over Notre Dame on the gridiron. After both scores the Fighting Irish converted. The largest crowd in the nation to attend a football game on this Saturday, packed the huge Balti ' more Stadium to its capacity — 65,000. The Blue and Gold played excellent ball, driving through the vaunted Notre Dame line for a total of 10 iirst downs, while yielding only two more to their opponents. Except for the sudden turn of the game as the result of those two passes a tie seemed inevitable. Navy ' s " spread team " went into action during a part of this game, and to the surprise and delight of the Midshipmen hammered the big Irish forward wall for several first downs. Their wide open tactics took the Notre Dame squad by surprise, and when the game ended this team was nearing scoring territory. The game was featured by the beautiful defensive play of Captain Robert- shaw of Navy, and the running of Andy Pilney of Notre Dame. Notre Dame, 14; Navy, 0. Too many Irishmen 448 A twist for the Tiger ' s tail PRINCETON " DATTERED and bruised from the gruelling struggle with Notre Dame ■ the preceding Saturday, Navy visited Princeton to play one of the finest teams to ever represent Princeton University. The Jungle Cats refused to act the part of the perfect hosts, and literally tore the Blue and Gold to shreds. Scoring once in each quarter, Princeton continued to remain one of the unbeaten and untied teams in the nation, while the Navy set-back was the third in succession. Princeton ' s first touchdown came at the end of an uninterrupted 51 ' yard march, with Pauk going over from the 3 ' yard line. The second score resulted from another long march with LeVan scoring. The Blue and Gold appeared disorganized, and at no time during the game did the team play the brand of football of which it was capable. The last half saw two more Tiger scores; one, resulting from a blocked punt, and the final tally, coming from an intercepted Navy pass in the final seconds of play. King and Robertshaw were the only outstanding Navy play- ers, but their efforts were unsupported by their teammates. Princeton, 26; Navy, 0. Hessel m V • ' -- 7 fW Who ' ll snag this one?

Navy defeated ■ ■ the Univer sity of Pennsylvania, 1 3-0, before a crowd of 75,000 at Franklin Field, Philadelphia. The Blue and Gold played smart football to score, and then protected their lead with a staunch defense against the powerful Pennsylvania team ' s attack. A penalty against Pennsylvania for clipping while a punt was in the air, midway in the first period, gave the Blue and Gold its first opportunity to score. With the ball on the 9-yard line, Schmidt traveled the remaining distance on the first play, when he cut through right tackle and evaded two Pennsylvania secondary defenders. In the third period. Captain Robertshaw gathered-in a pass intended for a Pennsylvania receiver and romped 66 yards for the second score. Brilliant blocking assisted the Navy leader in scoring his touchdown, and in turning in the outstanding play of the game. Bull kicked the extra point. In the last quarter Navy hurled back two Penn assaults against their goal, while m turn, threatened the Red and Blue defenders with a speedy ground attack. Final score: Navy, 13; Pennsylvania, 0. Good for a short one 450 Free for running COLUMBIA AMID the mist and rain that drenched the players, Navy grandly paraded - up and down Thompson Stadium soundly trouncing Columbia Uni- versity, 28-7. The blocking and tackling exhibited by the Blue and Gold was the finest of the season, and the Columbians never had a chance to penetrate the Navy defense. Schmidt, Navy ' s Flying Dutchman, turned in seventeen breath-taking rushes for a total of 280 yards — an average of I65 yards a rush. Three times Schmidt swept across the Columbia goal line — the longest run being a 90-yard jaunt that had the crowd standing in their seats, 25 yards for another, and 2 yards for still another. In between: 75 yards, 26 yards, 11 yards, 10 yards, 9 yards, etc. The entire first and second teams, in addition to the " spread team " which started the game, played beautiful football. Fay Wilsie broke away m the last period for a 25-yard touchdown run. Columbia ' s lone score resulted from a blocked punt late in the fourth quarter. Klingensmith broke through to block Reimann ' s punt, and recovered behind the goal line. Barabas kicked the extra point. Thomas Antrim The Flying Uutchman in a six point landing 451 Hood R.

Joe Hood captained the Navy crew, stroked the varsity- boat from the starboard and was acclaimed the outstanding Eastern oarsman. Jim Gray, Hoffman, Dick Gray, Fleming, Bayless, Fowler, Perkins and Weinel gave ' 36 a generous representation in the top flight at Hubbard Hall. Scarcely had the ice left the coastal rivers when we whitewashed Colum- bia, on the ruffled waters of the Harlem. After a close plebe win and a jayvee victory over the Lion 150 ' s the varsity rowed to an impressive 45 ' length victory. Next week Cornell brought four crews to the Severn. Navy handily took both the 150 and freshman races. After a seesaw race the Navy jayvees brought their boat in a fraction of a length ahead. The varsity event, hampered by adverse wind and tide and choppy water, was a hard pull. Starting with a " 40 " Navy slipped into a half-length lead and was never headed. Slowing down to a rhythmic " 32, " they kept the lead speeding up at the finish to cross the Hne going away and nearly two lengths in front of the Ithacans. Clear water 452 Power and perfection VARSITY CREW May eighteenth the varsity was invited to race against Yale, Cornell, and Princeton on Lake Cayuga. After waiting all afternoon for conditions to moderate the crews finally wallowed up to the starting point only to have the race called off on account of darkness and rough water. The disappointed eights left Ithaca the same evening with the issue of Eastern supremacy un- settled. Incidentally this was our first scheduled race against Yale in many years. A week later the Adams Cup race was the biggest thrill of the season. Harvard and Penn each sent down three crews and a colorful crowd of supporters. As President Roosevelt looked on, the Navy plebes and jayvees won d ecisively. The memorable event was the varsity race. Over the mile and three quarter course Penn and Navy strove evenly for the lead. The finish was close to a dead heat. Navy had gained half a length in her final spurt and was moving faster than the leading boat. However, a difference in phase of stroke cost us the race and Penn crossed the line a scant foot ahead.

Gray Bayless While the midwatch :n the Practice Squadron off the coast of England listened anxiously, returns came in from Poughkeepsie. To secure a heavier crew Coach Walsh had changed the combinations in the two first boats. The freshman race, taken by Washington, found the plebes a close third, the first Eastern boat. The three mile race was a fine duel between the Navy jayvees and the Washington alternate varsity. Though they barely failed to overhaul the Huskies, the Navy left the field behind, making a great showing against a stronger, bigger, more practiced crew. In the chill rain that kept attendance down to 20,000 Navy ' s varsity got off to a good start and led most of the initial mile. California and Cornell pulled ahead in the latter part of the long grind. The heavy Eastern crew Navy had beaten in a sprint race carried the fight to the finish and was beaten only 10 feet by the Golden Bears. Washington nosed out Navy for third. It was a fine race well rowed but the handicap of weight and winter was evident. Workout 454 Parker Schecter Thomas Greenup Steinmeti Loomis Phillips Chambers Wheeler i5o4b. CREW COACHED by Ensign Bob Fulton ' 32, the 150 ' s kept three good shells in the water throughout the season. The top crew was composed mainly of veterans. Captain Steinmetz, Red Thomas, Parker, stroke, and Schecter, all ' 35, formed the nucleus of a smooth-working, powerful eight. Loomis and Phillips, the lighter men, Chambers, ' 37, and Greenup, ' 36, rounded out the first boat, which remained intact all season. In their first appearance, late in April, the 150 ' s turned in a fine perform- ance. They gave a polished exhibition to take an impressive win over the Ithacan lightweights. The only other race of their season was the American Henley on the Schuylkill m Philadelphia a month later. The lack of outside competition proved a handicap. Although very much in the running from start to finish, and crossing the line only a length astern the winners, Princeton, Navy was fourth, trailing Penn and Columbia by fractions of a length.

It was also highly valuable as a preview of the 1935 edition of the Navy cinderpath artists, but that which was revealed was far from encouraging to Coach Carl Thomson. Navy had numbers, but lacked experience. William and Mary ' s Indians opened the campaign by bringing to Anna- polis for the tenth year a small but select band of individual stars who garnered eight of fourteen first places, but lacked support in the seconds and thirds. Despite the 18 points collected by the brilliant efforts of their all-time star, Monk Little, they lost the meet 71-55. Captain Fred Bakutis and Joe Patterson indicated clearly the records in the javelin and in the hurdles were to be shat- tered regularly in future meets, by turning in remarkable efforts for an opening engagement. Metcalf, also, hit new heights in his specialty, the pole vault, setting a new meet record. Navy revealed its greatest strength two weeks later in blanketing Vir- . «l » - The y ' re oti ! 456 Some of the boys TRACK ginia 90-36. Joe Patterson humbled his arch-nval, the Penn Relay and Southern Conference Champion, Grover Everett, m both the hurdles, and the broad jump, by breaking Naval Academy records in the three events. Joe stepped the low hurdles m 24.1 seconds and broad-jumped 23 feet 71 inches. The achievement was even more mipressive when it was discovered that the former record had been held by Jack Keller, of Ohio State, former Olympic star and world record holder. " Pony " Shetenhelm also brought the spectators from their seats with a sensational sprint which nipped the highly-favored Banta of Virginia, after a furious see-saw struggle down the home-stretch. " Pony " came home the winner in a 4:29 mile. Navy took twelve firsts of fourteen events, including a five-way tie in the two-mile ordeal. Decker and Patterson were double victors, and Navy swept the shot-put, javelin throw, and high jump. Despite this early display of power, the following week witnessed a Navy defeat by North Carolina.

Marked weaknesses in both the 880 and the shot-put boded ill for victory hopes in the approaching Army meet, but Patterson ' s con- tinued brilliance in annexing sixteen points, and Capt. Bunky Bakutis ' heave of 205 feet in the javelin throw were bright spots which made the loss easier to take. Oscar Davis ran a splendid quarter-mile in slightly over 50 seconds flat and Navy made a clean sweep in the high jump to further brighten Navy prospects in the two remaining meets of the season. Two weeks later Navy held its first metric meet, playing host to the University of Maryland. The latter brought down three fine in- dividual performers in Widmyer, of national sprint fame, Coleman Head- ley, in the middle distances, and Bill Guckeyson, in the shot-put and javelin throw. These three garnered twenty-eight points, but there the competition ended, and Navy won handily, 80-46. An entire new set Winning form Close finish 458 Winning form of records was established, and those of Patterson and Bakutis will stand for a considerable period of time, the former broad-jumping the equivalent of 23 feet 10 inches, and the latter tossing the Grecian spear, Finnish fashion, through 206 feet, five inches, attracting the attention of the nation ' s track followers. " Oscar " Davis again stepped a fast quarter, Cosgrove, Pinkerton, and Metcalf tied for first in the pole vault, and Bob Sleight, " Pony " Shetenhelm, and Stuessi finished in that order m the 3000 meters, while Decker and Wrigley both emerged victorious in the shot-put and high hurdles respectively. With three weeks remaining before the day of reckoning with the Army, the team would be ready to give their best, and with this knowl- edge, and the further reali-ation that " Bunky " Bakutis, Ralph Met- calf, Dan Patterson, Cosgrove, Decker, Wrigley, Fitzgerald, and Davis were facing their last meet, the squad redoubled their efforts to make it a successful one. 204 feet Sleight Ferrara $ Long distance strides 459 Top Row: Fenno McKay Summers Anderson Robertshaw Hale Chipman Gibson Ellis Beacham Middle Row: Pratt Schwaner King Eisenbach Ruge McGowan Spain Paddock Bottom Row: Paist Transue Matheson Sellers Sexton Krogh Schneider Pratt Cloughley BASEBALL ' I ' HAT infallible harbinger of Spring, the crack of the bat, found Lieut. ■ ■ (j.g.)

Dick Pratt covered the keystone sack, with King on first. The outfield mustered most of the batting strength with Fred Seyford, Hank Schwaner, Matheson, and " Bu:z " Borries. Griff Sexton and McGowan started most of the games on the mound, Paist carrying the relief burden Noticeable for their absence were third basemen and catchers with good throw- ing arms. These positions were uncertain till late season when Ruge plugged the infield gap and Omar Spain became regular backstopper. Following the custom. Admiral Sellers threw out the first ball for the opener. A pitching duel ensued in which Sexton took the hill against Harvard with three runs in, in the third, and pitched almost perfect ball until darkness halted the game at 3 all. Next week against Vermont, " Griff " extended his string of scoreless inn- ings with a one-hit shutout. King singled Schwaner home for the lone tally.

Errors gave away the game with William and Mary, but not without a fight. With two on and none down m the last of the ninth, Schwaner clouted a rollicking double to center. Dutch was nipped m an effort to stretch it and the rally ended, the score 9-8. Everybody including Sexton got a bingle or two as Navy pounded out a 11-4 victory over Lafayette. Navy fans were treated to their first glimpse of major league material when Gettysburg brought Bowers here. Bowers fanned fourteen of the local batsmen, but what balls our players did hit traveled far. Schwaner and King got circuit blows, and Pratt tripled. Bowers assisted offensively with a four- bagger, leading his teammates to a 6-3 win. Maryland brought another fine ball player for the fans to cheer. Keller, with a season batting average around .600, made four sizzling hits, the last a homer, in four tries at the plate. Sexton hurled good ball otherwise, holding the Old Liners to six hits. Thanks, however, to Mr. Keller Maryland won, 5-2. Reed Strike two 461 K ' Close at hrst K AVY Duke took advantage of poor fielding to shut Navy out 3-0, though McGowan hurled a fine game. Seyford injured his leg sliding and remained out of uniform the balance of the season. " Jersey Joe " had mauled the offerings of the op- posing pitchers all season and was leading the team with a batting average of .417. The next game was a classic, Lefty Rogers, Virginia star pitcher, later of the Southern Association fame, demonstrated all of what it takes to be a great pitcher as he whiffed 17 Navy men. Speed, con- trol, change of pace, and a bewilder- ing assortment of curves, drops, and cunning were his. Sexton was in fine form, too, and a scoreless tie was averted only by a strange fluke. With one down and Rogers on second, the batter bunted. King fielded it and tossed to Sexton who was covering first. " GrifF " collided with the runner and the ball rolled along the foul line. Sexton retrieved the pellet and seeing Rogers round- ing third, rifled it towards the plate. The ball, however, was intercepted by the head of the runner and caromed thence into the stands, Rogers scoring the only run of the game. A rap to the infield 462 Schwaner, Ruge, and King singled successively to start Navy off against Georgetown. McGowan was yanked in the third after the Hilltoppers had scored two runs without a bingle. Spain tied it up with a triple in the seventh and Matheson ' s pinch threebagger next innmg put the game on ice. Temple, leading 6-0, Eisenbach pinch hitting in the ninth, came through with a double. Headwork on the footpaths brought him home to avert a shutout. Washington and Lee played host to Navy at Lexington, Vir- ginia, for three days. Navy went right to work getting five runs on five hits and an error in the first inning. The Generals rallied in the 7th and 8th to overcome the lead, 10-8. In the second game Griff Sex- ton pitched ten innings of fine base- ball only to lose, 3-2. Led by the All-Southern tackle Jim Tatum, North Carolina col- lected eight runs in a big third inn- ing.

The loss of several brilliant performers from the 1934 com- bination placed a heavy burden upon the shoulders of the newcomers and the holdovers from the preceding year ' s squad. The start was slow, but each suc- ceeding game saw a finer brand of play; and the climax came at the end of the season when the " Ham ' n Egger ' s " upset the national championship aspirations of Army by sending them back to the Hudson on the short end of a 7-6 count. The attack was featured by two sets of players, a light attack and a heavy one. The former featured Thing, Cooley, Nibbs, and Parham: while on the latter sparkled Captain Schacht, Bill Clark, and Ward. With these men taking care of the goal-making end, Moreau, Hutchins, Fellows, Dornin, Larsen, Evans, North, Cox, and others held the opposition mainly to the center of the field, insuring that the enemy shots were hard earned. Navy opened its 1935 lacrosse season officially by decisively turning back the Crimson invaders from Harvard by a score of 7-1. Despite the absence of Maryland on the attack A rjce tor the sidelines LACROSSE Captain Schacht, the members of the attack scored with ease, and the defense was practically airtight. Only the splendid work of Howard, the Harvard goal- tender, kept the score down. The next week Princeton visited Navy to turn a fine game into a Navy defeat, 4-3. The winning goal marked the only time during the game that the Tigers led. Bill Clark accounted for the most spectacular play of the game when he received the ball from the face-off and dodged through the entire Tiger team ' s defense for a splendid shot at the goal. The game kept the many specta- tors on edge throughout, by the closeness of the score, and the abilities of the players engaged. The Tiger is definitely coming to the fore in the lacrosse world. Already she is challenging the supremacy of the famous Maryland Big Four, the University of Maryland, St. John ' s College, Johns Hopkins, and Navy. Syr acuse, the next opponent, proved to be the doormat for Navy to wipe off the stmg of the Princeton defeat. Larsen scored in the first thirty seconds and the rout was on. Captain Schacht, playing his first game of the A play works to pertection Pananides Schacht Evans Fellows Face-off season, teamed up with Cocky Ward to account for ten goals between them. The rest of the attack brought the score up to 16, while the defense held Syracuse to 10. The week following, Navy in- vaded foreign territory to decisively defeat Yale, 24-6. Nibbs and Par- ham were high scorers with 5 goals apiece, followed by the combination of Schacht and Ward with 8 goals evenly divided between the two. Thing kept in the scoring column with a goal to maintain his perfect record of scoring in every game. Following the trip to New Haven, Navy entertained Maryland on Worden Field. As usual the game was bitterly contested. Although Navy ' s last win over Maryland dated back to 1928, the thought of last year ' s tie gave an added impetus to the struggle. At the end of the half Navy held the lead with the margin of a single goal. This lead disappeared in the Marylanders ' great third period rally, and in the ( A Navy goal 466 ' V ' V - - -- k ■ttJr ' if ' itiMMHfll y aHi . V JKX ' HBHtjI % HH VML - S s BIBi ft ' ' ' . tJt - .

In the last regular season game, as preparation for Army, Navy played the Mt. Washington Club of Baltimore, a team composed of former All-Americans and all-stars from Johns Hopkins University, Maryland University, and St. John ' s College. This galaxy of players turned the game from a hard-fought, interesting battle into a near rout by a spectacular assault on the Navy goal. The Clubbers, when the final gun was fired, were leading 14-4; the worst defeat in several years that a Navy lacrosse team has suf- fered. The game was witnessed by many thousand lacrosse fans, as the outcome was important in the de ' termination of the state lacrosse championship between the Mt. Washington Club and the Baltimore A.

Of that great squad which dropped only two games of sixteen played, only three men with previous playing experience. Fellows, King, and Shamer reported for practice on the new Armory floor, at the beginning of the 1936 season. Coach Johnny Wilson was faced with the task of building a team from the bottom up for the first time in the many years of his reign as varsity basket- ball coach at the Academy. A fine plebe team of the preceding year had pro- moted a promising group to the varsity, but at best, they were inexp erienced and would be difficult to coordinate into a smooth-working outfit in one season of play. This condition was apparent in the opening game with the University of Baltimore. Before a hard-fighting team Navy was nearly helpless despite the use of every man on the bench, until they found themselves in the last twelve minutes to overcome a lead and win, 38-25. The winning combination of Fel- lows, McFarland, Ingram, Shamer, and Lynch now became the starting team Shamer shoots one 468 BASKETBALL and improvement was noticeable in the routing of V. M. I. the tollowmg Wednesday. Coach Wilson ' s usual style of using all five men under the basket to run up large scores worked to good advantage with Lynch leading the attack. The peak of the season was reached in the defeat of a previously unbeaten Penn State team 36-30. A " garrison finish " had the 3,000 spectators on their feet in an uproar; Lynch again being the spearhead of the attack. With three wins in a row behind them, the Navy five suffered its first shock of stage fright, and Maryland ' s Old Liners defeated them in a disappointing 32-20 game. Navy returned to the win column on the following Saturday when the five turned back an eagle-eyed Gettysburg College outfit, 40-34. McFarland was the outstanding player on the floor, and it was largely due to his accurate eye that the Blue and Gold triumphed. This victory was followed by another, a burlesque, in which the Tars outfumbled a reformed football team representing Western Maryland, 27-17- A far-traveling squad from Atlanta, Georgia, Oglethorpe University, fell before a closely coordinated attack that produced points at will, by the score of « Sanford McFarland Ingram tries a long one 469 A Navy basket 44-22. McFarland and Captain Carl Fellows turned in excellent perform- ances. Continuing their winning stride Navy won a hard-driving, quick ' Cuttmg game from William and Mary, with Fellows directing a truly high-geared offensive to pile up a 38-24 score. With this game the season really ended for Johnny ' s boys, the rest was a monotonous series of defeats by the best teams on the seaboard. Virginia ' s Cava- liers outlasted the Tar five in an overtime game, 26-25, to start them on the downslide, despite Mc- Farland ' s fine efforts. As in many of the earlier games the players were on the deck almost as much as the ball and personal fouls claimed an even half a dozen contestants. Right on the heels of the Cavaliers came the polished Pitt Panthers, cham- pions of the Eastern Intercollegiate League, to smother the Blue and Gold aggregation, 42-20, with a beautiful exhibition of shot-making, led by Jesko, an eagle-eyed Panther forward. On their one trip away from Annapolis, Navy made an A rough scrimmage 470 excellent showing against the highly- favored Southern Conference Cham ' pions, the White Phantoms of North Carolina, at Chapel Hill. Despite the injuries to Tiny Lynch and Frank Shamer, the Navy led until the last ten minutes. Lack of reserves cost the game when the Phantoms ran away to a 39-25 victory. Then followed another nip-and ' tuck con- test with Washington and Lee, both teams roaring down the stretch as McFarland and Spessard of the Generals matched point for point until the timer ' s gun ended the battle, Washington and Lee win- ning, 2Q-23. Columbia, Eastern Collegiate League leader, closed the Blue and Gold ' s regular season by taking a well-earned 40-24 game from the Navy five. The records for the season reveal seven wins against six losses, the poorest season in many years of varsity basketball at the Academy. However, the foundations were laid for the coming two seasons, as only Fellows will be lost by graduation.

The Regiment may be forgiven for not attending the Saturday games, but the enthusiasm of the squad re- mains at the highest pitch due to one — Coach Tommy Taylor, and the fascination of the game to the players. With a team composed principally of seasoned first classmen, and second classmen, the Navy Free- booters competed in six contests during the 1935 campaign. The opening game of the season was played against Lehigh. The light, fast-passing team got off to a flying start, piling up a 3-0 lead in the first quarter. Sanderson, one of the most deceptive players on the team, accounted for the final tally, making the score, 4-0. At New Haven, for the second game of the season, the Navy team fell before a determined Yale Bulldog assault, 4-1.

This fact and the short- ness of the time between the beginning of the Academic year and the first meet, made a mediocre season inevitable. The season was inaugurated by the invasion of the Duke Harriers on October 12, and a fourth place by Young was the only reason Navy averted a whitewashing by these Southern Conference champions. The score was 19-36, low score winning. The race was run over a 3-mile course. Two weeks later, Princeton duplicated Duke ' s feat, and Young repeated his. The meet was over a Sj-mile course and the score was again 19-36, but improvement was evident, and the following meet ended with the Navy a 24-31 victor over the North Carolina Tarheels on the 35-miIe grind. " Howie " Young Shetenhelm Along the grind Bola 476 CROSS COUNTRY finished in second place for our best performance, while the rest of the squad dis- played their best form of the season. Bolam, a youngster, showed great promise of future development. Without the customary two-week interval between meets, the squad journeyed to Pittsburgh the following week and were badly beaten over a tricky 4-mile course, by the score of 18-37. Bolam was the first Navy man in, placing third in the race, continuing his rapid improvement during the season. Although unable to look back on a successful season from a standpoint of victory. Captain Bob Sleight deserves much credit for the perseverance and high spirit of competition displayed at all times by a squad that met the highest caliber of opposition. Captain-elect Young inherits a nucleus of experienced runners, and the addition of last year ' s plebes should aid materially in producing a team of great ability. A mile to go Tup Row.

Two teams, one from the Mid-west, Kansas State College, and the East ' s new intercollegiate champions, Penn State, defeated the Blue and Gold grapplers. On the 25th of January the season was opened with an impressive 25|-42 triumph over the University of North Carolina wrestling team. The Midshipmen won three bouts by falls, three by decisions, and drew in another to run up the one-sided score. The Tarheels won their only bout in the 118-pound class. ' However, Masters, Navy ' s 125-pounder tossed his man with a combination armlock and half nelson. The quickest fall of the meet was gained by Mann, Navy ' s 155-pounder, who threw Smith with a three-quarter nelson and body roll in 34 seconds.

V. M. I. vi as the next victim, falling 18-12. Each team won four bouts, but Navy ' s three falls and one decision offset the Virginians ' four decisions. Jack Hunter, 165-pounder, furnished the thrill of the afternoon when he threw Baldwin, V. M. I., in 1 minute 15 seconds. Rogers and Vogel each threw their opponents and Steve Mann gained a decision over Brooke of V. M. I., having a time advantage of 7 minutes 54 seconds. The third meet of the season saw the Blue and Gold wrestlers bow to Kansas State College by the margin of one fall, in a closely contested and exciting meet. The score was 15|-10 . In only the light-heavy and the unlimited matches were the invaders no match for Navy. Both Vogel and Player flipped their men all over the mat, but could not throw them. Rogers, in the Bradley Cresap Mann Pappy Hunter parries 483 I Hunter Vogel Navy top tune WRESTLING bantamweight class, defeated Schlafli in one of the many brilliant exhibitions.

Mann Pug in a business-like mood Teel 484 WRESTLING provided the other fall of the meet, when he threw Arenz in 5 minutes 41 seconds. Vogel continued his winning streak, only after being forced into an extra period by Kaplan. Penn State, the next opponent, defeated the Blue and Gold 24-6, administering the second defeat of the season. The Nittany Lions took three falls and three de- cisions. Only Masters and Player turned in victories for Navy, both decisions. Vogel, Navy ' s crack light-heavyweight, received his first defeat as a varsity wrestler. Shaffer threw Vogel with an armlock and body weight in 8 minutes 52 seconds. The other bouts were closely fought, but the Lions maintained a time advantage and took the meet. Navy closed the season by defeating Pennsylvania, 14-12. Player ' s heavyweight win clinched the meet. Vogel registered the only fall when he threw LutE with a bar and chancery.

With this powerful 1935 aggregation — featuring Plichta, Stevens, and Hyland — wrecked by graduation. Coach Henry Ortland was faced with the task of building a new team around two lettermen — Captain George Grider in the breast stroke and Carnes in the dives. Navy hopes were dealt their first blow when illness forced the latter to forego his flips and gainers for the duration of the season. The first meet found a well-rounded Rutgers outfit on top by a 53-18 score. Navy ' s Green and Grider dropped an exciting breast-stroke race to Timko of Rutgers, while Kercheval pushed Rutgers ' intercollegiate champion in the backstroke to a fast victory. The scheduled meet with the City College of New York was cancelled, and the splash- ers rested for the " awav " tilts with Columbia and Yale. After i The turn SWIMMING losing to Columbia, the team managed to make their best showing against the power- ful Yale organization. Navy won the 300-yard medley relay with Kercheval, Green, and Friednck performing; Friedrick took a good second in the 100-yard free style, and Green and Grider returned one-two in the breast-stroke event. The Pennsylvania meet, although it resulted in a 48-23 defeat, showed potential Navy strength in the performance of Kercheval in the backstroke and Snyder in the dives. The feature race was Grider and Green ' s dead heat in the breast stroke in record time. Princeton gave the natators the final coup de grace with a 53-18 setback. Navy can well afford to pass off this season as a build-up in preparation for a stronger team next winter. The experience gained this season will produce a strong team that should take the title next year.

The smooth-working, well-balanced team developed by Coach Frank Foster deserves much credit for its performance, as nearly all the players are new to the followers of Navy water polo. The Blue and Gold played four games, winning them all. Three were league contests, while the other game was played against an outside team. One scheduled league game with C. C. N. Y. was cancelled. The " suicide squad " opened the season with an impressive 23-9 victory over the New York Y. M. C. A. Teamwork and fast passing proved the winning combination, with all members of the team playing equally well. The following week Navy came from behind to nose out the Foster Grider 3 Points! 488 Blankinship i ' Suiciders in earnest WATER POLO Rutgers University squad 28-24, in a close contest. Gnder, Navy ' s swimming cap- tain, was the outstanding player in the pool. His brilHant individual playing netted him five touch goals, one thrown goal, and a pair of free tosses for a total of 19 points. With two weeks ' rest the squad journeyed up to New York to play the cham- pion Columbia University team. The Blue and Gold dethroned the Lions by the score of 20-12, in a bitterly contested and fast game. Again the Navy teamwork and faster passing attack proved to be the margin of victory, while a stout defense held hack the Lion forwards. In the final game of the season the water poloists soundly trounced the University of Pennsylvania poloists, 27-15. The score at the half was 18-0, the defense proving impregnable to all Quaker attacks. During the last period an unlimited substitution agreement allowed Coach Foster to send every man on his squad into the game, giving all the members an opportunity to play in a league game.

Out of six meets the team lost but one, tying another. The series began inauspiciously with a loss to Temple, 1936 Eastern Intercollegiate champions, by a rather top-heavy score of 40-14. Vengeance was socn coming, however, in the form of a 35-19 victory over Dartmouth during an interesting visit to their home gymnasium at Hanover, New Hampshire. Once having gotten the range, the squad settled down to a series of victories. On February 29th they overwhelmed M. I. T. by a score of 49-5, taking practically everything in sight and dropping only a second and a pair of thirds to the invaders. The following week they encountered much stiffer competition. Princeton came down with a strong aggregation, including two rope climbers with strong ambitions toward lowering the world record in this event now held by Navy. But with the help of Captain Terry, Olah, Boyd Warming up Oseth 490 Gymnasts at work GYM Hart and DeCamp and a majority of the minor places Navy managed to end up on top, 31-23. The team used the next two weeks to whip into shape and take Spring- field in their stride by a score of 46-8. The season wound up with a dual meet against the Army at the Intercollegiates, run off along with the individual championships, in which we eked out only a tie at 27-27 — far below our usual standards. Terry on the horizontal bar and Boyd on the rings did the outstanding work. Our individual work was also below par, and we took no first places. The final standings showed Navy in a tie for second place for the team championship. Thus a seven-year monopoly on the title was broken — but only temporarily. The combination of Mr. Mang ' s coaching experience and the skill and hard work of the gymnasts themselves should soon put Navy back in the top position.

The squad came - - through their encounters without a defeat. Army went down to a 1413-1343 defeat. Lehigh, one of the two teams that defeated Navy during the 1935 season, was taken over to the tune of 1400-1373. The other team, Cornell, had a 1413 shot against them in a telegraphic match by a thoroughly aroused squad of Navy shots. High scores were the predominant note of the season. W. L. Kitch, ' 38, shot a 294 in the Georgetown telegraphic match. This unusually high score is an all-time high in intercollegiate compe- tition. Kitch may be justly proud of this fine shooting. It raises the old mark of 292 by two points. R. P. Nicholson, ' 37, shot the high score of 290 in three successive matches. The average score of the season was very close to 1400, which was an average of which to be proud. W. Blenman, ' 36, the captain, could he depended upon to turn in a 280 or better in every match.

A strong foils team lead by Captain Jack Carmichael and Hanger, and a highly reliable epee trio of Johnston, Bell and Foley won the bulk of the points. Coach Taeymans ' sabre squad lacked experience but Vance and Woodard will give It a good start next season. After dropping the first two meets, one to the Philadelphia Sword Club, 14-13, and another close one to Yale the squad hit its stride and did not drop another dual collegiate meet all season. Most notable of the triumphs was that over the Intercollegiate Champions of 1935 and 1936, New York University. Hanger and Shirley both won from the number one collegiate foilsman, Hugh Castello. CarmichaeFs victories over strong number two and three men and Shirley ' s defeat of Lewis gave Navy a 5-4 edge in the foil. The fencer ' s home FENCING Vance ' s wins in all three of his sabre bouts helped considerably though the Violet evened things up with a 5-4 edge in this weapon. The decision rested with the final touch of the last epee bout and Bell came thru to win, 2-1, 5-4, and the meet, 14-13. Navy remained invincible on home grounds, taking Cornell, Hamilton, C.C.N.Y., and Rollins m to camp. The New York Fencers Club came down towards the end of the season bringing several of the nation ' s best swordsmen with them. The Navy foils and epee teams made excellent showings, more than holding their own. The vis- itors ' margin in sabre gave them their victory, however. Two trips to New York brought a tie with Columbia in a dual meet, and a tie with Harvard for fifth place in the Intercollegiates. Notable in this finale were the foil team ' s defeat of Army, and the epee team ' s second place, one point behind Yale.

The previous year a team had been organized, composed en ' tirely of first-classmen, which met several colleges in informal matches played on the Academy course. Commander Oldendorf, as officer representative, and Mid ' shipman J. J. Southerland, as midshipman representative, con- ferred at an early date with officials of the athletic association and assisted in bringing about our first intercollegiate schedule. Shortly before the season opened. Midshipman Hird was elected captain and manager of the new sport.

Four veterans were on hand, plus two able neW ' comers, and as the season progressed this group developed into a well ' balanced combination that could meet and defeat the finest college opposition. Captain Jack Mann, Kimmel, Gay, and Noel played the first four positions, while Oelheim and Hoyt Mann took care of the other two positions. The week following the Tufts match saw Johns Hopkins swamped by a 9-0 score. The next opponent was the Pittsburg team, having one of the best college tennis players in the country. Madden. Navy came through with a smashing 8-1 victory, losing only to Madden. The next three teams to be met in order were Maryland, Temple, and Lafayette. The Blue and Gold racquet wielders gave up only three matches to the combined attack of their opposition. TENNIS The first hard match was with Virginia. The singles were evenly divided, but by sweeping the doubles, Navy won, 6-3. Cornell handed the Midshipmen the first defeat of the season by a 6-3 score. The visitors took five of the six singles played, and one of the three doubles matches. Navy regained the winning touch again at the expense of Duke, Washington and Jefferson, and Georgetown, with the loss of only two matches. The final match of the year marked the second defeat for the Midshipmen. Pennsylvania turned back the Blue and Gold in a bitterly contested and spectacularly played series of matches. Jesse Gay proved the ace of the squad, winning all of his matches, and teamed with Noel m the doubles, lost only one match. The younger members of the squad proved consistent winners, so that the outlook for the " 36 season is bright.

Mumma for preparation and instruction in one sport that receives little attention in the collegiate world, but of vital importance to the career of every naval officer. Brilliant marksmen and capable instructors are in the process of development. The result of this training has been brought forth by the consistently fine performances of the Marine teams, that are coached by former Naval Academy graduates, when they compete with the Midshipmen team year after year. The 1935 outdoor rifle team competed in four matches, win- ning two and losing two. The two Marine teams, the Quantico Marines, and the Philadelphia Marines, that were met during the season defeated the Midshipmen. Both meets were close, with the Philadelphia Marine team winning out because of general superior- ity m the 600-yard slow fire, and the Quantico Marines, because Squeeze ' em out Hanger 500 AR GAME Y • • • • Miller The touchdown! FOOTBALL Fellow AS A crowd of 80,000 looked on, the Army and Navy met on the gridiron of Franklin Field in Philadelphia ■ for the thirty-second renewal of the annual football classic. Army fired all its long-range scoring ammu- nition in the first twenty minutes, and emerged badly battered, but triumphant, 28-6, in the most extraor- dinary and spectacular struggle for service supremacy seen during the entire series. The great throng had hardly settled itself in its seats when Grove, on a reverse play around Navy ' s left end, was streaking 80 yards for a touchdown. Meyer, the Cadet ace, twice threw the ball into the waiting arms of Army receivers, and on both occasions the gold-helmeted players from the Hudson scored. The last touchdown came when Grohs drove over from the 2-yard line. The Blue and Gold appeared helplessly de- moralised — outclassed — as this great Army team continued to play nearly perfect football the rest of the first half. Then, starting with the second half, came one of the most remarkable transformations witnessed on a Back to Army territory No gain through Zabriskie 504 Huls. FOOTBALL Manning gridiron this year or any other year. Led by the hriHiant running of Schmidt, Navy took command of the game, and tore up and down the field to threaten time and again to score, while smothering Army ' s attack for the rest of the game. Only once did the Blue and Gold reach the scoring turf, Schmidt going across on the first play in the fourth quarter. Five times the Navy attack crushed its way down the field only to be denied by lack of scoring punch at the critical moment. The Army line that had proved itself so powerful during the first half was beaten down. Off-tackle, through guard, over center, and around the ends always resulted in a gain from 3 to 24 yards. Twice fumbles ruined Navy ' s chances when within the 10-yard marker, while penalties and intercepted passes spoiled the other opportunities. To the end of the game the Blue and Gold kept the Pointers on the defensive, while trying desperately to score, ripping off yard after yard, but to no avail. Incomplete Fumble 505 I • • Schacht Navy ' s first goal in the second half LACROSSE Moreau ' " PHE climax of Navy ' s season came on June 1, when 12,000 spectators filled Thompson Stadium to see the - - Blue and Gold turn back the Cadets, 7-6, m a spirited uphill battle. Army scored twice in the first period and once in the second before Navy managed to sink its first goal. Wilbur Thing started the scoring, and Joe Wesson added another soon afterwards. The first half ended with Army leading, 5-2. It was an entirely different Navy team that started the second half. The same players — but a new spirit — a spark that provided the impetus to outscore Army, 5-1, and to completely dominate the play. The attack functioned smoothly, keeping the ball in Cadet territory, while the defense time and again exploded Army assaults, taking the ball away from their attackmen, or turning back long distance shots. With the score tied at six goals apiece, Ward beat a Greylag to the sidelines to obtain possession of the ball. He raced in, circled the net, and rammed in a goal just as the gun ended the game. • The winning goal Army ' s defense breaks up a play 506 X Play ball! ' Sexton BASEBALL .-■ t: V Grohs THE trip to the Point was made with a crippled squad, minus Buzs Borries and Fred Seyford. Matheson, who turned out to be the hitting star of the game, and Anderson, both youngsters, replaced them. After an uneventful first mning Pratt opened the second stanza with a single. Knapper bunted him to second, but he got no farther. In the second half of the inning Army garnered three runs with two hits and a walk off Sexton. Coming right back in the third. Sexton reached first as the Kaydets fumbled his grounder. He scored when Schwaner and Matheson hit successively. Pratt ' s one-bagger brought Schwaner in before Knapper fanned to end the rally. In the fourth Army blasted Sexton from the mound with a five hit attack. Paist relieved Sexton. Mathe- son and King scored in the fifth after both had hit and executed a double steal. Army widened the gap in their half of the inning with two more, and added their tenth in the sixth. Final score; Army, 10; Navy, 4.

Army scoring clean sweeps in both. Every other event was closely contested with Navy running 1-2-3 in the 120-yard high hurdles. The Blue and Gold provided the outstanding individual performer of the meet in Joe Patterson, who conducted a one-man pentathlon by entering five events — winning three, and placing second in the other two. This feat ranks Joe as the greatest athlete in the history of track at the Naval Academy. Wrigley nosed out Patterson in the 120-yard high hurdles for a 1-2 Navy finish. Metcalf tied with Klocko of Army for first place in the pole vault. Captain Bakutis easily captured his specialty, the javelin throw. Cosgrove and Cooper, Navy, tied for first place in the high jump, while Decker took the discus throw by a margin of two feet. Rutledge, Shetenhelm, Davis, Stuessi, Fitzgerald, Pmkerton, Brock, and Peppard increased the total score by hard-earned seconds and thirds.

Army struck quickly, and got away to a commanding lead that left Navy struggling to catch up as the game progressed. The Army attack was centered around " Monk " Meyer, and Ken Dewalt, who scored 23 points between them. At the beginning of the game Navy played with a far better coordinated and cohesive attack than their opponents. However, the shots refused to drop, and then Army began to click — pulling away from the Blue and Gold to hold a 17-8 lead at the intermission. Navy launched one serious bid to overtake the Cadets early in the second half, but Meyer and Hiatt, towering center, broke it up nearly as soon as it had developed. The removal of Captain Fellows on personal fouls was a severe blow to the Navy threat, and the play of the Blue and Gold was slow and uninspired for the remaining minutes of the game. • • Shamer and Hiatt high otf the court Time out! 509 Acknowledgments The Editor and his Staff express their deep appreciation to those whose willing cooperation and valuable assistance have made possible the publica ' tion of this book.

Unfortunately the records of the great men in the firm ' s books were destroyed by fire, and the earliest existing account starts with the Meredith family. Melchizideck Meredith was notable in a double sense, for in life he was a striking personality and founder of a remarkable business; posthumously he was enshrined in an outstanding novel. He was the original of " Old Mel " in his grandson ' s book, " Evan Harrington. " Melchizideck was a fine figure of a man, cut out, he considered, for higher things than shop life — for coun- try society, hunting, c. But in early life he had to attend to business, and in 1784 started his career as tailor and naval outfitter at 73 High Street, Portsmouth — the house in which his famous grandson, George Meredith, was born 44 years later. This was the birth- place, then, of the famous naval tailor ' s business, which was to become known all over the world. Captain Marryot writes in " Peter Simple " : " We called at Meredith ' s, the toilor, and he promised that, by the next morning, we should be fitted complete, c. " Undoubtedly the customers included Nelson, the Trou- bridges, and Jervis, and all the great sailors of that time — in a fighting and sartorial sense. Melchizideck Meredith died at the age of 51. His only surviving son, Augustus Urmston, was but seventeen years of age when his father died. He was the original of Evan Harrington. For the next few years the busi- ness was in the capable hands of Mrs. Meredith, while her son did his best to fit himself for tailoring, much after the style described in the novel. Nelson ' s Hardy came to lodge with them, for on September 7th, 1827, Admiral Sir Thomas Hardy wrote to his brother Joseph: " Portsmouth ... I con give you a bed. 1 cm at Meredith ' s the tailor, 73 High Street, opposite the Parade Coffee House. " Augustus was not successful in business, and eventually decided to leave Portsmouth and make a fresh start in London. He sold his business to his neighbour, John Gait, who figures as the occupont of the Meredith House in the Directory of 1842. In 1852, James Gieve, father of the late James Watson Gieve, Chairman of the Company, and grandfather of Rodney W. Gieve, now connected with the firm, joined John Gait in partnership and later moved to 111, High Street, Portsmouth. The firm showed great enterprise during the war with Russia (1854-56) — fitting out and despatching a yacht to the Crimea, with necessaries for the fleet off Sebostopol. Joseph Gait, second son of the above, was appointed one of the British commissioners on the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869. Another well-known member of the firm was Colin Edwin Gait, the proprietor and founder of the well-known Travellers ' Club. At the present time the firm has branches in every principal port in England, and at Malta and Gibraltar, in fact, its activities □ re world-wide; and their association with the United States Navy, whom they have the honour to serve, dotes back many yeors One hundred and fifty years hove passed, and today GIEVE UNIFORM CLOTHS ore still made at their West of England mills, and are the FINEST THAT CAN BE PRODUCED Arrangements will be mode for our representative to visit the ships on the Midshipmen ' s Cruise Uniform and Civilian clothes, for which measurements are token, will be ready for fitting at any European Port.

W. HILL Secretary IN THE July, 1902, issue of THE ENGRAVER AND ELECTROTYPER a two-page article announced the formation of o new organization. The message began with the statement, " The Photo-engraving firm of great promise is that of the John Oilier Engraving Co. " •- This prophecy was a truism, borne out with the passing of the years, each one of which recorded an orderly and steady growth. More skilled men were developed within the organization, newer machines and cameras replaced equipment as fast as they became obsolete, and on five occasions it became necessary to find larger quarters until at present the firm occupies its own modern, fire-proof building. - Parallel with this unceasing expansion there came an ever-widening clientele, whose increasing patronage eventually placed the John Oilier Engraving Co. in the position of unquestioned leadership. )§«••- For many years we have been the largest College Yearbook designers and engravers in America; and in the commercial field we serve a distinguished group of the most progressive national advertisers. )§ ••■- To us, this measure of success calls for no laurel wreath. Rather, we accept it as a solemn responsibility, realizing fully that the pacemaker not only sets the standards of quality and service for the industry, but must sustain them by his accomplishments. )§►•■- Ours is a simple formula: Ambition, honesty and integrity, constant hard work, keeping abreast of im- provements, building a loyal capable organization, and treating our customers as fairly as we expect them to treat us. }§►— All these factors have become welded into a fixed policy, and it will remain constant — unalterable — as the years continue their phantom march.
