We have gone through many trying experiences together, to our mutual advantage; but we have gleaned many happy memories which we shall cherish always. In the days to come there will be many stories revised and retold over the teacups, in the blending of our vintage with the lore of the sea. Nigh upon four years now we have counted the days — ave, the hours and minutes — to Graduation. And yet, as the time draws near and the curtain is about to fall on our novitiate — Our memorabilia looms rich with the treasures of Nineteen Hundred and Thirty-eight. The Naval Academy was founded ninety-three years ago with a definite mission. Above all, we have at last gained a full realization of that mission. Since the founding of our " Cradle of the Navy, " many classes have passed the portals of the Academy. With the toss oi caps in the air this June, we, too, shall join the Cause in upholding the traditions of our predecessors. May those traditions be honored and fulfilled ! The Naval Academy has given us a new start in life; and Bancroft Hall has been a new home. At times we may have felt out of place; but what pleasant associations have surged when after a summer practice cruise we first sighted the chapel spire glistening in t he sun, or looming in the mist. In years to come how pleasant will be a visit to the Naval Academy ! The walks and trees, parks and monuments, the creek and river and bay — what glorious memories they will invoke! And the build- ings of the Yard — what mental anguish, and again friendship, they have housed ! The first midshipmen in 1845 lived in several detached dwellings: Apollo Row, Rowdy Row, Brandywine Cottage, " Gas House, " and the Abbey. We of today have all Fl j» ., I £ p T ITS FIRST FOUR YEARS Of cabbages — and kings — And why the sea is boiling hot — And whether pigs hare wings. ' lived in one great dormitory, Bancroft Hall, with its massive masonry symbolizing our common bonds. If in the distant future, this Luckv Bag can in some measure awaken these memories and stimulate these dreams, its purpose will have been fulfilled. For four vears we have lived by the sea — and now we shall go down to the sea. Poets have called the sea fickle, disarming, seductive, treacherous, fierce, and again calm, placid, friendly, and beautiful; but to us the sea will always be a friend. It has its troughs, as life has its pitfalls; and as the waves roll on forever, so our duty never ends, and our lovalty never falters. We shall carry with us to the sea happy memories which bind us forever to the Academy. We have a precious cargo. We have a guiding star and an anchor to windward, a haven in rough seas. And we shall take with us many friendships which will widen throughout the fleet. We go to sea with our " wives. " Generous, long-suffering souls — for four years now our room- mates have been the butts of our practical jokes, friends in need, offering their last collar-button, and receiving in return rebuke and betrayal on hop week-ends! And now comes " the most unkindest cut of all " — we have written the biographies of our " w r ives, " exposing weaknesses and quirks and idio- syncrasies in the pages that follow. We have painted them with the shades of Mephistopheles, with a deft touch of the brush adding insult to injury, salt to the wound. Underneath the brusque style of a literary tyro, however, there flows a genuine affection, and an appreciation that is untarnished bv the pen and voice. We have come through together; and now we shall go forward together. Thanks to the " wives " who have helped us through shortcomings, which borne alone, might have been calamitous, but which shared in mutual respect, have dissolved away. In days to come, may our voices keep tune while our oars keep time — ± i r- k J _____ 1 m ■ I. tttbliilu I I iilk THE ROTUNDA " BANCROFT HALL s FIRST BATTALION Comdr. S. P.

Pueblo, Colorado FOUR years of Academy life with Freeland leads us to claim him as the perfect wife. Never the man to turn down one in need, he has the record for taking brick blind-drags. He will run to the tailor shop for suits or help with a Steam prob. The women follow his ready ear-to-ear smile, but none has appreciably turned his head. The very long and tall yarns that he can spin mark him for his imagination and humor, while serious- ness and thought crystallize his arguments. Though he is not an athletic star, boxing is his forte; bull sessions and befriending strange Plebes, his hobbies. Selling is his passion, whether it be hosiery or ideas. Never satis- fied, Freeland will get ahead and be liked wherever the Navy sends him. Boxing }, 2, i; Class Representative 2; Lieutenant. 1 -y- DENNETT KEITH ELA Grand Junction, Colorado " deke " " mugs " DEKE ' S hardest job is keeping other people sat. Many besides his wives have remained in the Academy because of his willingness to untangle their problems. His only worry is fear of wasting time, and it is true that he never has his trou on when formation sounds, but he has never been late. Water polo is his sport, though soccer and tennis can also claim him. H e would like to make us believe that he is a Red Mike, but his dailv correspondence disproves that. A rare sense of values, common sense and an appreciation of his fellow men combine to give him a splendid sense of humor and make him a gentleman in every sense of the word.

A ham, his heaven is lighted with radio tubes, and spare gear litters every corner. Always the first to laugh and entertain with his own embarassing situa- tions, he has created eternal and stimulating jokes, songs, and complaints against the injustices of the Academic Departments. He remains on top in spite of several close skirmishes with the doubtful side of 1.5 in Skinnv and Steam. Plebe year saw him a rabid Red Mike, but since then he hasn ' t missed a hop, stag or drag. Athletics can ' t claim him. His crowning achievement was passing the swimming tests. Spring always finds him banging away with the most expert of the rifle team. Swede will always be in the thick of it, wherever he goes. Rifle Team 4, }, 2, 1, rNAt; Boxing 5; Radio Club 4, 3, 2, 1; Vice-Pres., Radio Club 1; Ban. C. P. 0. NEWELL FOSTER VARNEY Portland, Maine " swee ' pea " " rollo " BRIGHT blue eyes and blonde hair betray a Viking ancestry and an inherited love of the sea, evidenced by his whiling away spare hours at sailing and carving model ship hulls. Crew is his favorite sport. He can be found at the crew shed any afternoon, spring or fall, where his determination has overcome the handicap of short height, winning him a seat in the first shell. The outstanding qualities of determination, a ten- acious conviction in his own opinions, and dependability mark him. Onlv a louder voice can beat him in an argument. His greatest trouble, as with us all, is to live within the monthlv pittance. His imperious stride will carrv him far. ££ Crew 4, }, NA; Lieutenant ( .,§•)• 37 CHARLES FRANCIS McGIVERX Kenosha, Wisconsin " mac " MAC ' S unperturbed calm made his tour years at the Academy pass easily. Ir lets him devote a good deal of time to personal interests, the mainstay of his intense character. An elusive curiosity gains him much pleasure in a wide held of activities. Not easy, is it, to guess his current state of mind, but he is ever bent on that broad hobby, his pursuit of a iberal education. He is not argumentative, but his quiet voice brightens discussions of anything from the " long view " to the girl he dragged to the last hop. A true sportsman, he is every bit that the word implies, as he plays for the love of the game. His competitive mind in all but aca- demics makes him a regular fellow and a keen companion.

RALPH WEYMOUTH Detroit, Michigan " woof " UNDER that shock of blonde hairand peering out through those frank, blue eves is a mind alive with curiosity and understanding. If the lips smile, it is a demonstration of his unfailing good nature. With Puget Sound fresh in his memory, Ralph came to Annapolis with an uncommon appreciation of the sea and ships as his salty heritage. Time devoted to satisfying the whims of his curiosity during study hours, he compensates with his uncanny grasp of fundamentals and ability to apply in practice his hastily digested textbook information. Spurning academics as an outlet for his competitive spirit, Ralph enlisted his long legs in the cause of Navy track and cross country; they have served faithfully and not in vain. Although prone to air small grievances, Ralph ' s infectious, quiet joy of living has made him many friends.

His choice of the Navy assured us a shipmate tried and true. Studies are the least of his worries. A little stir of the gray matter could bring out the stars on his collar; but who would not rather rest, think of the next day ' s sailing, his favorite pastime, or last but not least, plan the next week-end? Ray is fond of the gentler sex and never misses a hop. Romances come and go so fast it is hard to keep track of them. Hardly a day passes that there isn ' t a scented letter tucked in the corner of his blotter. Ray has the faculty of readily picking up things — in books, of course. But friendships and books take- such a man to the top in the Navv. Crew 4, y, Boat Club }, 2, 1; Ketch Captain 1; Christmas Card Committee ; Lieutenant (j.g. ). LUCIEN BERRY McDONALD San Francisco, California " luke " " mac " MAC was bora and bred by the Army. Why he chose to join us, we have not asked, but his infectious good nature makes us glad he did. He has proved himself to be an amiable and generous classmate — witness the continual and rapid disappearance of his skags. Mac plavs soccer and lacrosse with ability, and he swims a bit. Formerly he shone as a horseman and followed the hounds, always up among the leaders. He still leads at Dahlgren, but in the academic race he is sometimes back in the field. He has always managed to be in at the kill though, and sines and slipsticks have not troubled him seriously. We feel it a real privilege to have him for a shipmate. Sandy will be a welcome addition to the fleet. =£ Soccer 4, 5, 2, 1, N; Lacrosse 4, }, 2; Hop Committee; Lieutenant ( . ?•)■ 39 LAUREN EDGERTON JOHNSON Olympia, Washington " steve " " rosy " I ONLY sent her a couple of Logs, sir " — his famous first words of Plebe year. But time marches on, and Steve has learned many lessons in love, as well as a dash of Nav, a drop of Steam, and a jigger of Juice. A snake at heart and a Casanova in action, Steve has set a stiff pace for the altar- crashers. Inspired by a working knowledge of the reg-book and a host of non-reg ideas, his famous Johnsonian theories would put Rube Goldberg to shame. His ability to throw punches and passes is only surpassed by his skill in throwing the bull. Marked with a wonderful sense of humor, a cheerful smile, and a pair of square shoulders, Steve has made many friends during the first chapter of his career, and is destined to make many more. A true friend and a real man, that ' s Steve. Boxing 2, i; Batt. Football 4, 3, 2. Batt. Baseball 2; Lieutenant ( .£.) EUGENE THOMAS BRADLEY SULLIVAN San Diego, California WE called him Brad the first two years, but having added another cognomen he ' s Sully to us now. No adversity could cause his smile to falter or stop his determined, persevering and yet happy-go-luckv fight towards the ultimate goal. Sully throws ' em hard and fast in the ring, and on occasion has come back in the late rounds to stop the Steam Department with a smashing one-two punch. His natural ability to make friends during his sojourn on the Severn marks him as a real and true friend to have. The mail detail claims Sully receives more than his share of perfumed epistles in dainty handwriting, and the pictures on his locker door confirm his success along these lines. W ' orldy wisdom linked with academic knowledge will carry Sullv a long way. Wrestling 4; Boxing 3, 2, bNAt; M. P. 0. 40 53 CECIL VERNON JOHNSON Richton, Mississippi " johnny " " c. v. " THE Johnsons are like ducks — they can live on dry land, but only necessity will make them do such a foolish thing. Three brothers have preceded Cecil at the Naval Academy, and he assures us that there are still more coming up. Mae West would probably fall for Johnny — he could easily pass for the original " man who takes his time. " He has the true rebel knack of taking things easy, which is no mean art at this, our Naval Academy. No one could possibly call him a cut-throat; yet he has managed to keep well ahead of ye academics since the first term of Plebe year. His even temper and his impassiveness will ensure him success throughout his naval career. Good luck to you, Cecil — may we often be shipmates. Radio Club 4, }; Co. Rifle 2, . Lieutenant ( •£•)■ WILLIAM ARTHUR SISSONS Detroit, Michigan BY act of Providence Bill was assigned to some batt. other than the third. For with Billie Sissons close to Billie Goat (Navy mascot), the latter would soon have his horns talked right off him. Our hero was reared in and around Detroit. He could not understand why battleships were not propelled and steered like Fords — nor why people voted the Democratic ticket. But the Steam Department and his own good sense have helped to clear the fog. He is hard to divert from literature long enough to bone Steam and Juice, and it is in the Bull and Dago depart- ments that his ability flourishes and his marks soar. Bill has taken some hard waves over the bow, but his buoyant spirit, optimism, and integrity have always brought him safelv through. When he goes, we lose a swell pal. t Co. Soccer 4, $, 1; Co.

He came to the Academy with a variety of experiences, a variety of ideas, and a gift of interesting gab. Plebe vear, Red kept up with academics very well, but later strayed from the path of higher educa- tion. His mechanically-minded and inventive brain could not concentrate on any subjects except Steam. It is apparent that the sea does not beckon with crooked finger now. We hope that after a few vears with the fleet he will have become an ardent proselyte, because the Navy can use his critical attitude and interest in revising and inventing. Wherever the world has the pleasure of this red head ' s society his best friend will follow — his appetite. Foot bcill 4, 3, 2, i, NA; Crew 4 Lucky Bag; 1 P. 0. OTIS ALBERT WESCHE Napoleon, Ohio " adolph " " oats " KOUND at the ends and high in the middle! A steadfast son, a staunch ,_ friend — Ohio should pride itself in high calibre men of the O-tis type. Combining a well rounded character with lofty ideals, he " hits the spot. " If you look closely, you can almost see those stars shining from the inside of Adolph ' s full dress collar. Who knows — he may sprout a pair before he enters the Fleet. Stars, of course! For the fourth at bridge or that extra man, give Adolph the high sign; he will be ' round to oblige. True to his name, Otis will carry himself to the top. Those of us around him will feel the lift which his loyalty, integrity, and character inspire.

No ambition to he an Admiral or savoir fills his heart. The future looks better for him while contemplating an easy chair, a tall brunette, or a fast car. Chet has more friends than any one man rates, and so many femmes he tries to scare them away — but they love it! When not wielding the President ' s gavel of the Radiator Club, Streaky does a bit of managing for Wrestling. Though stars have never been his, Jesse never lets the Academics disturb him too much. It is hardest, he thinks, to stay " sat " in the Executive Department. We can all envy Chet for the fun he is sure to have. Happy landings, Chester!

In a quiet mood he is all reserve and dignity. In a frolicsome mood — well, the possibilities are unlimited and watch out for flying ink bottles. (Maybe he gets it from the Indians.) If interest is an indication, the Corporal will be a great aviator. His chief trouble is the morning after, with trying to get fifty cents worth out of a dollar running a close second. Having the femme situation well in hand, Algy misses few hops or social events. He keeps fit, but athletic tendencies were well curbed by the Dago Department. But after a three year death struggle, Doc emerged with victory and a sigh of relief. His remarkable and unusual sense of humor makes Doc always a desirable and entertaining companion.

Marie, Michigan " grabba " FEW people can or will ever mean so much to a lighting organization as the kindly, strong-willed Grabba. The pace-setter for the best among us, he is the living counterpart of Admiral Hopwood ' s famous lines, " The strength of the ship is the service and the strength of the serv- ice the ship. " To those of us who knew him in the " Old Navy " his- shore duty on this coast has been remarkable for Grabba ' s heart remained in California when he came East. Academics come easy to him; he is a born athlete, an excellent gunner, and an even better radio man. Whether it be soft lights or hard work, it makes little difference, for Grabba has been working and waiting for this day. All hands in the Fleet await the return of a shipmate whose qualities are seldom duplicated. Water Polo 4; Trident 4; Glee Club 2 Black N; Ensign. WILLIAM PATRICK RIESENBERG Bronxville, New York " bill " " pat " BILL is a sailor born and bred. At the tender age of eight he went to sea in a windjammer captained by his sea-going father. Since then he has always been in contact with the sea and knows its ways. After a couple of years spent in Uncle Sam ' s Navy, he came to the Academy to learn more about his chosen profession before returning to the life on the bounding wave. Gunnery is his forte, and those intricate details of the big guns are an open book to him. There is something about watching the land fade away over the horizon which land-lubbers never know and which is dear to the hearts of sailor-men. Bill knows this feeling well. Ever ready with a new sea story, ever willing to lend a hand, he is waiting impatiently for the time when he will return to deep water.

The latter were used to write to a bevy of the fair in his home province; the former he will discuss at any time and place, with gusto. His hobby is also history, but of a different sort. He has sufficient knowledge of the sports world, past and present, to compete with many commentators who put out the dope for the future. An enthusiastic exponent of football, he won his numerals in spite of a late start. His happiest moments are spent in winning an argument, be the subject politics or pole vaulting. With his steadfast philosophy about life and the Navy, Gordy will always gain the best they have to olier. 4, 3; Track 3, 2; Boat Club 1; 0. HAROLD EUGENE NIXON Billings, Oklahoma " nick " ATYPICAL example of the soft-spoken, quick-thinking men from the . Western plains is this quiet Oklahoma boy. He never has a great deal to say, but what he does utter is usually dope of the best sort. This :omes from a keen analytical mind which thinks before it speaks. His hobbies are reading and going to movies, of which he is an excellent critic. Most of his spare time is spent in reading current literature. Never caring much for the weaker sex, Nick hasn ' t spent much of his time with them. In his encounters with the Academic Department, Nick has always emerged ictorious. He has taken each subject in stride and managed to avoid any acquaintance with the venerable Tecumseh. With his keen judgment of human nature, Nick will go far along the road toward a successful career. Ensign. =E 45 CHARLES RUTTER NORRL jR. Tampa, Florida " senator " " charlie " CHARLIE left Sunny Florida for arctic Maryland, and has since tried to preserve the illusion of his happy homeland by spending his time swimming in the sparkling waters of the natatorium. Armed with slip- stick, verb wheel, and plenty of sense, he has managed to stand right up there with little effort and no throat cutting. His drags have been num- erous and varied, but his heart remains intact. In spite of his roommates he has preserved his sanity, and often that of his roommates, bv making long term loans with no security, all with the aplomb of Congress making a million dollar appropriation. He often renders songs, but his homicidal tendency stops there. We hope to see him often around the same wardroom table with us. Swimming 4, j, 2, 1, N; Wate 4, 3, 2, N; Batt.

EDWIN FLETCHER WOODHEAD Boise, Idaho " filbert " " ted " TWFFP or Filbert was born unto and brought up on Idaho power plants, and he is willing to expound the merits of Idaho water power to all within hearing. We first noticed him under the pile at Plebe football games, and since have watched his steady progress on the varsity. He studied hard when his roommates did not run too much interference, and has never run afoul the academic board. His familiar rotund figure has not often endangered our dance (loor because dragging has always been an infrequent avocation with him, but commendable on such occasions as he practices it. He gained his youthful knowledge of seamanship navi- gating home made rafts on the Snake River. This descendant of King Harold the Fair Haired (ask him) has learned of the sea and should go far there on a heart of gold.

Denver, Colorado " duke " " von " WE give vou a fellow who raises his head from the ranks of the " unsats " at the end of each term only to chin himself on the " sat " line and take a new grip on his naval career. Coming from the high altitudes of the Colorado mountains, he naturally looks forward to float- ing through the thin air again, not as a yodeling mountaineer, but as a Navy aviator. Lacking praise from others, he turns to the mirror to give himself a heart to heart talk, which too frequently strays from the original track and brings forth a tirade greatly lacking in self-abnegation. Here you have the original expounder of studying by mental telepathy from a closed book beside his bed. There is never a dull moment when he ' s around, and we hope to see him up in the air.

JOHN CHRISTIAN ISHAM Redlands, California " willie " WITH an orange in one hand and a lemon in the other, Willie landed from the sun and rain swept slopes of California. His first love was the Navy and with characteristic diligence he set himself to stand among the first in his class. His second love was in the family of one of our nation ' s venerated law makers where his diligence set him at the head — this time to stand one. In athletics, he turned to water polo which stimu- lated his gargantuan appetite to the detriment of his figure. We who know him find him a steadfast friend and true and with genuine regret give him up to the Fleet. T=t Orchestra 4, 3, 2, Director 1; Water Polo 4, }, 2; Batt.

Seriousness in all things which may contribute to his future success is the keynote of his Naval Academy career. His short, stocky build, blonde hair, and his streamlined " second class summer " haircut are his greatest attributes. With his uncanny facility for making acquaintances, many beautiful drags have been his fortune. The mistakes, of course, have been crossed off the record. Fencing is his hobby. His greatest virtue is his unwearying in- sistence. There are certain lieutenants who will never forget the lengths to which he went in order to learn the results of a Boat Club examination.

Two major interests, gymnastics and class standing, have received his best efforts for four years, and the results in both have proved satisfactory. In spite of the large picture gallery and correspondence which he maintains, he ' s still in love with the same lass as in 1934 — quite an unusual thing. He always wanted to spend one of his week-ends on the " Reina, " but thought too much of his record to " let himself go. " During the last four years aviation has won him for its own. We believe you will hear his name mentioned pretty often in this branch of the service years to come. Happy landings to you, Worthy!

Solemn, witty, and silent, except when he has some- thing important to say, he possesses all those qualities which go into the making of a successful naval officer. Infinite patience, and a sense of humor that never lets him down are his claims. Although no snake, he does not try to avoid social contacts and is one of those rare persons who is at home in any situation. Bob holds the Academy record of having bilged out more roommates than any other midshipman. The boys just wouldn ' t believe his philosophy that academics are one of the necessary evils of all higher learning. But we who have survived give honor to whom honor is due — a regular fellow. Four years a roommate; four years a pal. Football 4, }, i; Wrestling 3, 2, 1; Boat Club 3,2, 1; Trident 3; Reception Committee j, 2, ; M. P. 0. ' WILLIAM PERCIVAL SPENCER Greensboro, North Carolina " perk ' ' " bill ' ' BILL is of the assured type who take things as they come and worry about nothing. Although his apparent apathy towards studies pre- vented his starring, it did not keep him from leaving a good academic record. Possibly this was due to his habit during exam week of arising from his customary state of placidity and entering one of fervent activity. I shall always remember him bursting feverishly into the room with " hot dope " on the exam. His North Carolina ancestry is probably most mani- fest during a discussion, and he always welcomes a chance to argue, par- ticularly if the argument is a heated one. If his arguments get him into trouble, his congeniality and sense of humor get him out, so he never loses friends and never has trouble acquiring more.

Gifted with an easy goin ' nature, he is always willing to oblige with his own arrangements of popular music. As for the fair sex — he started well as a Red Mike, but alas! Academically Woodie has all the requirements to star, but the aviation world of designing and invention claim his spare (?) time. You can find Woodie almost any night contentedly smoking his pipe — composing or arranging music for our musical club show or perhaps watching photographs " come out " in his darkroom. In four years we have come to know Woodie as a happy-go- lucky fellow with a heart of gold — always a true friend and ever the gentleman.

ROBERT WIMAN CARTER Grand Forks, North Dakota A LOVE for flying, a fascination for photography, and an irrepressible . mania for slot machines are but a few of the many varied interests of this son of the northlands. Contrary to the habits of his illustrious namesake, Nick is no cutthroat except when in the presence of the fairer sex. Among his accomplishments are the ability to find bargains on Mary- land Avenue, to play well on the piano, and to throw burnt matches into waste-paper baskets from great distances. He is the only man in the Academy to have three pairs of spectacles. His pet aversion is his room- mate ' s trumpet-playing, his favorite pastime is taking movies, and his greatest ambition is to continue his flying career in Uncle Sam ' s Navy.

His philosophy is " live and let live, " if any- one ' s ever was. He has won his friends, not because of his many good points, but because, in spite of his weaknesses, people just can ' t heir liking him. Early in Plebe year his southern accent, singing, and guitar playing acquired for him the name " Mammy. " He likes to drag and prefers blondes from the sunny South.

Bridgeport, Connecticut " pablo " " becky " FROM the slopes of bleak New England, where seafaring men are born, not made, Paul came to the Naval Academy with a slipstick in one hand, a coordinator in the other, and a love of the water in his soul. Academics offered few difficulties except for an occasional tussle in which he successfully " threw the bull. " Swimming became his favorite recrea- tion, and his powerful breast stroke puts him well in the running in any race. A snake of no mean capacity, he finds romance well adapted to his line. Soon, however, Paul found that his six feet three was more at home in the water than on that element, and he turned his steps toward the Marines. With his efficient methods and disciplinarian leanings Paul will be a valuable addition to the Leathernecks. Batt.

" A thorough knowledge of the Civil War has won him many an argument over the Yankees, but his real oratory is reserved for the unfortunate who speaks an unkind word about Arkansas. Luke is an excellent bridge player, and his fiendish desire for a greater knowledge usually caused him to grab the paper from the assistant and search for Ely Culbertson ' s column.

HARRY BRINKLEY BASS Beaumont, Texas " brink " " cognac " THE minute Brink entered the Academy he began to make friends, and he is still going strong, without having lost any along the way. His ready grin and love of fun have made him popular with everyone. His friendly manner, however, covers a more serious side, and he has devoted enough attention to academics to place himself high in the class. In athletics, tennis has claimed most of his time, and by his work he has earned a block N and a varsity berth. Occasionally he takes a fling at dragging, but he generally favors the stag line at the hops. After four years here with him, we shall always remember Brink as lighthearted and gay, but dependable when the going is rough.

Aca- demically he has had his moments, but always he finishes with the velvet necessary to make life pleasant. Football has been his major attraction in athletics, and hard work has made him one of the best of players. In studies and everyday life, as well as in athletics, Bob shows a characteristic determination that has carried him through many strenuous tasks and will carry him to the top in any profession. His social activities have not become involved, though he awaits his mail with keen anticipation. In his quiet and unassuming manner Bob makes one of the best of friends and finest of roommates.

He walked up to a Congressman, and before the legislator knew it, he had been talked into providing the Navy with another future Admiral. From then on, taxes were lowered in California because Willie left there and came to Maryland, where he was met by a blonde, a taxi driver, and a messenger who asked him his name and initials. A couple of cruises have made him one of the most nautical navigators who ever missed a G. C. T. Seriously, Willie ' s friend- ship is greatly valued. His likable nature has won friends everywhere. He has more energy than anyone else in the Academy; if we all had as much energy as he, the Navy could be cut in half and we could still take every afternoon off.

It is rumored that Ray took a corre- spondence course in the Rhumba from a famous studio and developed thar popular dance into what is now known as the " Shile Shag. " Shilelah encounters little difficulty with academics. In fact, his theory is that better exam grades are made by boning in the peaceful atmosphere of the hospital amid pretty nurses and hot chocolate. His ability to make friends (of both sexes) should lead to more than a grass hut on the isle of Tahiti, to which he often aspires. Boxing 4, 3; Batt. Football 4, } Batt. Tennis 2; Ensign.

He ' s forgotten his method of entering, but it must have been successful, because he ' s been with us as one of the best known fellows in the whole Regiment. He has the most sincere loyalty that we have ever seen — he even defends the Hell-Cats. He will do anything in the world for a friend, and in return he asks nothing more than friendship. He always returns from leave three minutes early, from liberty three seconds early, and from a hop three minutes late. But if anyone begins to lose patience with him, his glowing smile takes charge and, again, Middy is right! =£ Musical Clubs 4; C.

Here, undoubtedly influenced by this famous Maryland weather, he grew sturdily and became the white, or should we say red, hope of his teachers. After working four years, Red moved across the bay to us; his purpose, to become an aviator. Contrary to red-headed tradition, he is reserved and slow to criticize. Those opinions he forms are invariably right. Study, to him, means boning a Post, Cosmo, or Esquire, or writing etters. Nevertheless, he has always worn stars. Running and dancing attract him the year round, tho ugh he is too steady to be a snake. Spud inspires the confidence of men and women alike. He is outstanding for clearheadedness and common sense.

His chief interest in life is presiding at nightly meetings of the Rod and Gun Club with kindred souls. His greatest weakness is extolling the virtues of Washington, whose foggy shores he left to join us.

Now that he ' s quite at home on land and sea, he craves to take to the air. He does not believe in working too hard. The torch of wisdom does not consume all his time — he finds delight in listening to the radio, making soothing music ripple out of his guitar, or dreaming of the charming little girl he left behind. From the looks of his fan mail, the folks back home must think a lot of him— at least, the femmes. He is good-natured and always jovial, an asset any time.

Although his first " pap " Plebe year was " Reveille, not turned out at, " he has yet to hear his first bugle. His sunny disposition and ready smile make him a welcome addition to any gathering.

He possesses a fine, carefree disposition with a vein of seriousness running deep in his character — an excellent liberty companion, whether the port be Annapolis or Berlin. These liberties seemed to have held a fascination for him for he was always one of the first ashore and the last back aboard. Far from being a star man, still for three years his willingness in translating our Dago has kept us in the black.

As each fall rolled around the football squad has always felt his presence, a presence which made the rest of the squad appear at a standstill. As soon as spring came, we again found him using his speed for track. He occasionally laid aside his activities in sports to drag the little lady for a week-end. The flip-flip of a deck of cards makes an un- ceasing call and you can usually find him participating in a game of chance.

He isn ' t sure just how he got here, and no one will admit the responsibility, but we ' re mighty glad of his presence. If he ever had a serious thought, he kept it a secret, and the world is probably better off. As far as academics are con- cerned, he has made a few little mistaJces, such as taking the left ascension of a turbine, but he always ends in the first hundred. His activity is basketball. His vices are bridge and losing song sheets. He is a perfect roommate. To lose him would be to lose more than our best friend; it would be losing the happiest side of our lives. Bat .

Like all great men our Kingfish has his weakness— he reads the Advice to the Lovelorn column, although he insists that he doesn ' t need it. He may be a sailor, yet mention the word " locomotive " to him and he will swamp you with so much data about streamlined trains that you will wish for that next leave. His activities have been mainly fencing and M.isqueraders. Always a capitalist and a conservative, something of a practical joker, his bywords have been " Boy, we ' ve got fun, no end!

This spirit, plus an almost fanatical devotion to t he service, carries " Hoyuelos " for- ward. After the Navy receives its due, he gets an equal thrill from bright lights, good books, or rigorous athletics. His complete disregard of danger or handicaps finds him, in winter, risking his prominent and frail proboscis in the boxing ring, and in spring, a candidate for pitcher on the varsity. Here exists the ideal temperament for his chosen career: tolerant, carefree, but not careless; daring, diligent, yet easy-going; romantic, and possessed of a sense of humor which would enable him to laugh at his own funeral.

Somehow he manages to abandon his " Collier ' s " and " American " long enough to stand near the head of his class academ- ically. A " Steinmetz " with radios, he is usually in the midst of a maze of parts which soon become a set. Cheerfully, he tinkers with the radios that balk on his friends. He is not too slippery with the women, but likes to drag occasionally, siding with his wife in preference for blondes, especially the one back home. Worth a million as a wife with his willingness to help, he yet delights in telling or playing jokes. Famous last words, " Let ' s go out and eat hamburgers, Joe.

Cheerful, industrious, always ready for work or play, he has been an asset as a wife and will be one as an officer in the Fleet. Spends his off " moments doing artistic woodwork — ship models, picture frames, and pipe racks for his innumerable pipes. Keeps fit by working out in the gym whenever possible.

Nevertheless, neither Dago nor the hours cheerfully devoted to pulling his wife " sat " could keep him from starring Plebe year. Athletically he contributes most to the Academy with his clear, concise reporting of sports for the press. Although he has been a mainstay of both the battalion soccer and baseball squads, his most thrilling accomplishment was getting off the sub squad in one day and weak squad in another. Sug ' s desires from life are good food, comfort, the better literature, fine music, and a wife to match. Even though his idea of a still ' workout is filling a vacuumatic pen, a keen analvtical mind will enable him to attain all these. £ THAT stocky little fellow with the broad grin and the mighty chest protruding through a split-out blou— that ' s Johnny Burrill. Call him Snake or Herby or Prime— or, if he isn ' t present to resent it, call him Bucket. Prime isn ' t a bucket, however. He has decidedly cut-throat as- pirations, but an ever present tendency to omit II from the denominator or failure to multiply by 3z.i keeps him down in the seventh section except in the bull subjects. His interests, rated in order: dragging, athletics, dragging, socialism, dragging, dragging, and washing cap covers. Ath- letically he is a rope climber, manages and runs cross country, and until the Medical Corps called a halt, he boxed. Johnny entered from the Navy four years ago. He goes back now to the Fleet that will find him con- scientious, dependable, and all Navy.

Speaking of the latter, we do know of one occasion when it was upset: " What does that guv mean, putting the swimming manager on the sub squad!

And thus it was by no mere chance that Wilbur was given the name of Chichi Pata — that well known South American dandy. Wilbur has had a few scrapes with the Academic Department, but always managed to get by even though at times without any too much velvet. His favorite pastime is bridge. Chichi is very frank and honest in all his actions, a characteristic which some of us fail to appreciate; but once a friend of Wilbur ' s, you understand and admire him for this trait. In the Navy, there is a place for him, and we are sure he will succeed. Best of luck, Chichi Pata!

Though no athlete he has been able to stay off the sub and weak squads and can be found any free afternoon at the Greasy Spoon or making a third at bridge. His practical jokes and Skinny P-Works in the room have caused much consternation among the Aggies. Although he is a happy-go-lucky person, he is always ready to give a classmate a helping hand over the bumps which we meet so often in our curriculum. Star 4, ), 2, 1; Batt.

The last man to enter his class, although a sandblower, is certainly not the least of us. John likes his sports, especially baseball — when someone else does the work. Tinkering and aquarium fish are his hobbies. His power as a storyteller increases daily — no wonder his drags rate among the Regi- ment. Academics nearly put an end to John ' s career during Plebe year, but being one of those amazing persons whose grades increase when he studies least, he skimmed by and has been improving his standing ever since. If the qualities of a gentleman combined with unusual sense of humor, sin- cerity, and responsibility mean anything, John must certainly go a long way towards realizing his ambition — to be an admiral. IRA GERALD STUBBART Cleveland, Ohio " iggy " THOSE stolid features don ' t show the gypsy strain which must exist in our Iggy, for here is one midshipman to whom the lure of foreign lands, a golden sea, and a fair ship is all-compelling. This, plus his ability to spin yarns on topics ranging from bear hunts to the snares of the wicked world, make him ideally suited to the Service. Stubby is sincere, his ideals are of the best, and his is a disposition that will expand the cramped quarters of a wardroom. His leisure finds him usually sailing or reading the exploits of great sailors, but he somehow finds time for both hops and sports!

Not athletically inclined, Bill has gained an undis- puted membership to the Radiator Club.

Willie is always ready to aid a less fortunate classmate, even to the point of dragging blind or standing another ' s hop- watch.

Though beset with his own difficulties in Bull and Dago, many will remember him as " the man who pulled me sat in Steam. " The Little Man indulges principally in three diversions: Bossing the Navy crew, dragging the lucky one of his many feminine admirers, or giving way to his flair for things mechanical. After two years in the Fleet, Elton plans to return to his first love, aviation.

He has travelled far and has had many enviable experiences both in the Islands and the States. He can scarcely claim a home state, but by the same token he can claim almost any of them. From the moment he entered the Academy he has been all-Navy. Little Annapolis has found a tender spot in his heart, and Annapolis, too, has its secret yearning.

His training in the Navy has given him the invaluable ability of being able to see both sides of a question and not just from the officers ' viewpoint.

He has also gained the reputation of never being in his room when liberty was available and was a leading contender for five- striper of the " Flying Squadron. " Ben comes from New Hampshire, but is impartial in his tastes and drags from all sections of the country. His ex- traordinary ability to bone easily gave him much spare time; so he par- ticipated in many extracurricular activities, most of which, however, were not sponsored by the Executive Department. Gifted with intelli- gence and the ability to adapt himself to any situation, Ben will never have anv trouble in making a going concern of his career. CLARKE JAMES BENNETT Fromberg, Montana " benny " BEHIND the quiet, unassuming manner of this son of Montana lies an interesting personality. His modesty is surprising to those who know him, and only on rare occasions could even his roommates get him to talk about himself. Academics came to Benny without much effort, and on many occasions his " wives " found in him the ultimate solution to diffi- cult problems, notably in Math. Not a candidate for any organized squad, but an ardent member of that murderous McDonough basketball crew was Benny, and judging from his brand of play he must have been something of an athlete before he came into our midst.

Being a Navy junior, he understood life, as lived at the Naval Academy. He was not to be worried — he jumped each hurdle as he came to it. At times Bob thought the academics had him bluffed, especially Dago, but by applving pressure at the crucial moments he was able to stav one up on them. He is an ardent admirer of feminine beautv but swears he won ' t marry until he is a lieutenant. His motto: " When falling, shift drags. " Bob is a great athlete and a great friend. The Navy will gain an officer well-grounded in the fundamentals of Navy life, with knowledge, and with the fiery ambition to make good.

" When not driving the county school bus or playing football, Gravy spent his time hunting deer (dear). He has some marvelous yarns to spin about his hunting. Maybe it was his desire to show the Navy something about the art of shooting that brought him to us. He is really not a blood- thirsty fellow, but is, on the contrary, one of the most good-natured men in the class. He has a ready " Howdy " and smile for every one.

The Golden Rule is the backbone of the ideals he cher- ishes and lives. Unasked for favors — like making his wife ' s bed when he ' s on a long watch — he ' s been a peerless wife and friend. A savoir without half-trving, he found academics his easiest work. Nor was he a slouch in athletics, for afternoons found him out fighting with a pigskin under his arm or brandishing a lacrosse stick. His weaknesses : Spending all his spare cash for the latest, popular phonograph records, and missing regular meals to insure sufficient room for food between them.

He ' s the kind that ' s good; yet constantly gets better. Four years of joys and sorrows amid the back-breaking routine of the Academy have not changed him.

As we might expect, he is quite a social lion, and it is very seldom that he is not seen at a hop escort- ing a 4.0. He is also a hard worker and knows how to buckle down and earn grades which any man might envy. His favorite sport is crew, but he often finds time to knock off a mere thousand yards in the natatorium. After all is said, his most outstanding ability lies in the field of music, and for four years he has been a formidable member of the choir and glee club. With such a variety of talents Bogie is sure to succeed, and we all wish him the best of luck in his future undertakings.

Although he stands exceptionally high in his class, he has managed to do it with a minimum of effort. In athletics, he has devoted most of his time to boxing and the sub squad, but he shows ability in several sports. In social life, he is just as steady as he is with his books, for his week-ends are usuallv monopolized by one lady who entertains a sincere interest in Freddv. His facility for building friendships, his pleasant personality, and his abilitv to do things in the right way should bring him to the top in the service. Boxing 4, }, 2, 1; Ring Committee.

First, he loved his wife ' s sister, remained true to her till he met his Norwegian sweethearts — then n quick succession came Marye, Ruth, Sally, Anne, and Peggy. Johnny understands mathematical induction, helped write the Ordnance book, thinks Calculus and Juice are fun. In fact, John says Thermo was his easiest subject, but Dago brought his lowest mark.

Doing so, you would find him equally ready to relieve financial tension or mis-manage love affairs. In his lighter moments, he " hops, " collects lipstick, and solemnly judges feminine fashions and pulchritude. When serious, the little fellow wrestles well, showers troubles and subscriptions on a defenceless Log staff, stars in Dago, and airily ignores the remaining Academic Depart- ments — except to malign all and sundry in Bull.

His common sense and ability to apply it to academic problems have kept Jack out of trouble with the academic departments. Athletic abilities are lacking except for an oc- casional struggle with the rope climb or a dash around the track. His greatest weakness — blondes; however, redheads and brunettes will do. An easy Southern drawl and a pleasing disposition make Jack one who makes friends and keeps them. For a roommate there is none better.

As a friend he is a dependable, svmpathetic, under- standing, and entertaining pal. A snake at heart, he ' s been conquered by a charming Arkansas maid.

During Youngster year we finally submitted to his piccolo and flute, though fortunately he did most of his practicing with the orchestra.

A. Since then he has shown that he could rind out for himself — an attribute reputedly lacking in the natives of his state. The Bull Department has been the only one capable of shortening his stride, but never enough to change his course. Tennis is his major sport, but a bridge game finds him no inexperienced fourth. He is far from the classi- fication, Red Mike, and has always found that limited touch of social life which ameliorates seclusion within these grey walls.

Athletically, our miniature Atlas likes the wrestling mat and swimming pool. Academically, he has man- aged to stand well up and vet find time for a surprising amount of outside reading.

He is blessed with one of those minds that require little coaxing to procure all the knowledge that books can offer. Little study and plenty of sleep, but still he stands at the top of the class. The sub-squad and an occasional game of tennis ake up his athletic routine. When he ' s not busy with these, you can usually find this loyal son of the sea building or sailing boats.

A decided snake, he never misses a hop; so of course he was in his heaven Second Class Summer. Like all the rest of us, Keene has had his troubles with the academics, but in the final averages he always came out near the top. Although slightly inclined towards the radiator squad, he has taken a try at several extra-curricular activities and didn ' t fare so badly at small-bore rifle.

Bill is a good mixer; so he is as popular with the fair sex as he is with his classmates. The pictures in his locker and his correspondence testify to this fact. Bill has been a good friend and roommate. With a sense of humor that never lets him down and a modesty that is real, Bill is a man ' s man and a man ' s friend — a true shipmate and a credit to the service that he oves.

He maintains that his career in the Navy started by accident, but, however it started, the Navy is so much the luckier. Harry possesses a killing sense of humor. Just get him started on some of his tall tales or practical jokes, and there is fun to be had. Women do not worry him. His thoughts are all for one. As for Academics, he is not a savoir, but he has kept one jump ahead with a perseverance that is amazing. Athletics have held no great interest for him, but he does have a real passion for ice skating. He sometimes regards himself a small-boat connoisseur. Steady and conservative, Harry has been a real inspiration. We hope that some day he will rate putting a tack on the Admiral ' s seat. M.

He has a flair for the briny deep and readily takes over authoritv aboard ship. He reads aloud in French and murmurs hvmns while studying Steam. Studies have offered him no hurdles. He has never been herded into extra-curricular activities, but he has preferred to spend his spare time in his own way adding to his numer- ous accomplishments. If you are a classmate, you know this picture, for Bill ' s enthusiasm and geniality have made him known as a friend to everyone.

Nor, to see him there, would you suspect that during crew season he could forego such pleasures to become one of the monks of Hubbard Hall. Yet Johnny has adapted himself to such a routine, gaining success in both iields. Although his operatic efforts, which burst forth from the shower, indicate that he will never aspire to that calling, there is nothing Eric enjoys more than a few bars of close harmony. And those who have heard his mellow baritone usually come back for more.

Augmenting this is his peculiar faculty for always getting on the wrong side.

Always the first to gripe about the abnormal lowness of Maryland temperatures, Walt, nevertheless, gets great pleasure out of spinning yarns from the land of the igloo, while, like Tennyson, he smokes infinite tobacco. Academically he is well off even though he found it a tight squeeze between the Steam Department and the great unknown his Plebe vear. Walt has something on the ball at every pitch; one seldom finds him at sea without his water wings. A veritable Napoleon at the dinner table, a whirling demon on the basketball court, a monster to the Plebes, and no slouch with a slipstick, he has chiseled himself a permanent niche in the memories of ' 38.

Being no hoarder of knowledge, however, he has many friends in the anchor sections. Despite his stars, he is a great believer in evening study hour naps; he astounded himself, after one profound slumber, by reporting " All turned out " at taps, after frantically stripping his bed in an effort to make the door by the second bell. Sonny seldom misses his afternoon workout, basketball, football, or tennis occupying his time when he is not acting captain of the sub-squad.

Outside of being the faithful keeper of a diary and an untiring compiler of statistics, Dave manages to keep himself clear of most forms of unnecessary mental toil.

Only one thing keeps Bill from being a perfect roommate — he has always refused to drag blind, remaining adamant on his Red Miking policy.

No higher tribute can be paid to Muddy, who one day found a high school diploma in his hand and the next day a laundry bag there instead. This marked his beginning in the Naval Academy, where he has continued his brilliant work with never a break. Women have no hold on him, and yet he is no Red Mike. A rare combination, indeed! His Indiana heritage crops out when the subject of basketball comes up, and he insists to the end that no better brand is played anywhere else, but he himself enjoys practically all sports from golf to swimming. Alas, perfection must always be marred; he has pointed ears!

Swimming, however, almost lost one of its devotees when Youngster year rolled around with Hops and opportunities to drag.

A deeply imbedded love for the sea and sailing takes him almost every afternoon to his home-made yawl where one may see him with the tiller in one hand and his beloved pipe in the other, leaning back enjoying all that the Chesapeake has to offer. Few possess the omniscient way with " book-larnin ' " accompanied by a copious practical mind. Truly Ray has both, and his talents are many. Women? — ah, yes! He ' s not a " hve-per-center, " but the DON ' TS of Navy life never interfere with his broadminded interpretations.

Pete soon showed us that behind that smile was a keen alert mind and the determination to see a thing thru. Studies not bothering him, Cosmo ' s, arguing, and helping friends pull sat took up his time. The Kid never dragged nor even looked at a girl until Second Class year and then . The ability to be caught for what everyone else got away with and the habit of dressing between formation on the third deck and late bell on the terrace earned him his share of extra duty. Everyone, D. O. ' s and Plebes included, is sorry to see Pete go. However, some wardroom stands to gain a swell guy and a good officer. £ B.itt.

Palo Alto, California skippi FROM that far western Utopia of California Jim came to learn about Uncle Sam ' s Navy and soon got oil to a flying start. No matter when or where or for what purpose a meeting was called he was always there as our number one dope-getter. It is rumored that he didn ' t miss four meetings in as many years and he has more inside information on the Naval Academy than any three of us would know what to do with. Academics never came too hard for him and consequently study hours usually found him concentrating on a box of stationery and the day ' s fan mail. Although not a snake he always starred in drags. Just ask any chapter of Sigma Kappa between Crabtown and Palo Alto. Here ' s to luck and great success in the Fleet, Jimmie.

A deceivingly gentle touch of the genuine diplomat combined with an astonishing store of accurate knowledge of medicine, bacteriology, the Koran, the political situation, and the exact location of the Rufiji River make him a Johnsonian conversationalist. He loves to take the more difficult side of an argument and prove the fallacy of the popular view — a thoroughly lovable social rebel. Batt. Water Polo 2, 1; Butt. Rifle 2, ; Ensign (D and E).

Whenever you find yourself minus a drag you may also seek relief from this Don Juan. Johnny is an all around handy man, except for the fact that he ' s never at home.

From an ancestry of Scandinavian ship-huilders he inherited a love of the sea. From the same ancestors comes his playful good-humor. His jolly smile and the humorous twinkle of his eye have not been dulled by care. Dick has his little worries, but he is blessed with a hearty smile. He is aware of what it takes to defeat the academics and knows exactly how many of his ergs of energy will earn a 1.5. Football receives his serious attention.

Though not in the snake class, Jake is to be found among the missing at very few hops. It is amazing that the supply of energy spent by this person never fails. Every evening you can find him working out in the gym or working on the ketches. Small boats from the star-boats to the Yamarie have felt the experienced hand of this Wisconsin sailor.

Jack ' s most-indulged-in pastime is writing and many are the wise, clever lines that flow from his pen. Naturally a very good student, he has allowed his marks to fall a little below the star in order that live of his friends might keep Bull and Dago above that old i.5.

" It is as im- ossible for one to get his six feet plus of stature underway as it is to become angry at him. Besides sailing, he enjoys a hot political argument, thinks the Navy great, and will make a swell shipmate.

Easy-going and a born diplomat, he has intervened in many a squabble to calm the uprising. No bridge game is complete without him and no one knows the tricks of that game better.

Iowa UP from the wind-swept plains of the Mid-West came this son of the earth to cast his lot with those who seek their fortunes on Neptune ' s broad expanses. A prolific reader and a veritable fountain of facts, he is always ready to contribute to any topic of discussion. He inclines toward the deeply academic rather than the trite or ephemeral. Endowed with an athlete ' s physical make-up he chooses rather to spend his spare moments digesting the latest theory of science or some gem of classical literature. Life has literally placed its gifts at his feet, for with his pleasant dis- position and convivial personality success is assured him.

He is congenial, easy going and pos- sesses excellent sporting qualities, being ever ready for a frolic or a tussle. Being an ideal shipmate, Jep is the friend of all who know him. You don ' t have to ask him if he s having a grand time in life. It ' s in his face and every action. His many nicknames speak loudly. In short, we think he ' s a grand little guy. He never lets academics worry him until grades are posted and not for long then. He came to us from the " blue grass " state and purchased shoes like his brother ' s.

ROBERT WARING McNITT Perth Amboy, New Jersey the monk ROBESPIERRE T=t HAVING spent literally all his time before coming to Uncle Samuel ' s School of the Sea sailing on Raritan Bay, Waring brought with him an enviable fund of sea-going lore. Occasionally being of a serious turn of mind, he finds plenty of time to devote to the important consideration of academics, and is well known as a savoir. The rest of the time he is sailing, dragging, sailing, engaging in any one of the number of sports in which he excels, or sailing. If there is a respectable breeze and boats available, the choice is sailing. Get it? Robespierre will share his last apple or pipeful of tobacco, and his cheerful nature makes it easy to win friends that stick. Here ' s to the success of one fine fellow — Bottoms up!

His heart is as big as anybody ' s. For the first two years he spent most of his time trying to keep his wife from bilging out. He succeeded, just as he has in almost everything else. Jigger is one of a room of three Red Mikes but that does not mean he neglects the women entirely. The rascal has a way with the gals that is quite astounding.

The World Series, the league hitters, are Zimmer ' s hobbies. A crackling delivery, a slight Yorkish accent, a sense of humor, make his stories enjoyable. Plebe year changed a sixteen year old boy into. . .what- ever they call Midshipmen. Youngster year and Christmas Leave finished it off. Connie was not a Michael Angelo, so he had tough sledding in Plebe year Steam. He ' s a perpetual Dago savoir, and the rest of the Academics hold no fear for him. No O. A.

His mechanical ingenuity and native intelligence have not only kept our radio in playing condition, and our various mechanical appli- ances in working order, but have also kept Larry off the pap and aca- demicallv on the right side of 2-5. By judicious use of his good looks Larrv has steered a safe course between the rocks of snakehood and the shoals of Red Mikery. Though one might not expect it from a native of those West Virginia hills, he is equally at his ease among his classmates and in respectable society.

JACK LEIGHTON ROBERTSON Portland, Oregon " robbie " HAPPY-GO-LUCKY, humorous, slightly sarcastic, and often showing his exuberance in strange antics — that ' s Jack. His Columbia-river- crawl has made him a consistant member of the sub squad, but baseball and soccer are the sports in which he excels. Academics come easy to Jack and, consequently, he has much spare time to devote to good literature. Many of his extra moments find him lost in solitude in an obscure part of Bancroft Hall madly working with his violin in an effort to imitate the masters he enjoys on the radio. In society he is rather subdued, but his ready wit and smooth waltz always provide a ready entre into the hearts of the femmes. A great pal — that ' s our idea of Jack.

Pedro usually has a war going on with another room but he always knocks-olF when study hour busts to bone the next dav ' s lesson. Although Pete is no savoir he is usually well above the border line. When he is close, however, he worries so much that the rest of the Regiment can secure. There is a good reason for his concern; Junior is a Navy man by birth and he wants to carry on. Athletics to him are good fun and his variety is great, from " B " squad football to bucket lacrosse. Serious at the right time but always ready for a good time, Peter makes a good Navy man.

He exhibits real ability at football, boxing, and lacrosse, winning four numerals Plebe year. Overabundance of " light " leads him to volunteer coaching in all sports.

John manages to have a better time than many have without sticking his neck out. He seems to gain great comfort from worrying but there is an inward self- confidence. Athletically speaking Juan is master of all sports. He swims like a fish, runs like a deer, handles a ball like a trained seal, and guards an mpervious soccer goal.

At times Charlie is a little procrastinating, but he al- ways comes through. With his Runyon-like speech he can improve any story he hears, tell you what pony won the fifth at Bowie, or give a good description of his latest doll.

Shaw might have made a successful Yankee horse trader — he ' s famous for bringing back a bucket from Youngster Cruise. He ' s a smoothie, never without a 4.0, and a gourmet of the old school.

Neither a snake nor a Red Mike he drags sometimes for himself and sometimes for others. Although not a savoir, his constant effort al- ways puts him through with that extra velvet.

In fact, he exhibits none of the manners commonly attributed to the uncivilized beings and would be delighted to be regarded as a smoothie. His activities have consisted of good-natured philosophy, raids into Crabtown, and in convincing himself and the swimming coach that Alaskans were never meant to be amphibians. His own appetite has caused him to be generous because he appreciates others ' capacities. His favorite poetry is that written by Service, extolling the land of the Midnight Sun.

Besides athletics Joe likes dancing. In fact, Joe is quite smooth. Not until one has double-dated with him several times does one realize his ability to competently handle any situation that may arise. He deserves the highest tribute that one can pay to a midshipman. That is he ' s sat in common sense. Even the best of us dope off occasionally but Joe manages to do it when no one ' s looking.

As a wistful Plebe, the youngest in ' 38, he yearned for care-free days in Oklahoma and bore every type of riding imaginable. But he starred that year and when he took a Landing Force Manual to Youngster Calculus he laughed with his oppressors. His sensi- tive nature made it difficult to reconcile high and definite ideals with the remolding of Plebe year. But he did it! From weak-squad material he has developed into a dependable tackle on the championship battalion football team, increasing his stature by three inches in the process.

During Plebe year he made his numerals in wrestling; but that year Eddie Peabody gave an exhibition of what could be done with a banjo and since then Connie has been putting him to shame at the expense of all other activity. Combine musical talent with keen mind and wit, and a good deal of practical sense and you have a personality which is hard to beat.

When he grew too old for these amusements, he decided to come to the Academy where he could continue in his youthful pleasures on a larger scale. But there followed a relentless attack on the Academic stronghold which always gained him more than a tie. This same push earned him on in football, baseball, and basketball, his captaincy of the latter attesting to his excellence on the wood. But Mac didn ' t use this agressiveness in his affairs of the heart; here he relied more on his cherubic countenance, dancing eyes, and slow smile to conquer the heart of the most obstreperous female, with a batting average that would make the best of the big leaguers look to their laurels. And we are firmly convinced that Alan ' s dying words will be " Two beers.

Gifted with more than average intellect, he has evidenced more interest in magazines and women than in text books, so that examinations have sometimes proved quite dangerous. Any night will find him stretched out on his bunk reading the latest periodical fiction, unauthorized by the Academic Departments. For one who professed him- self a Red Mike, Bob has been disappointing. He has not missed a social function yet, nor will he in the future. Agreeable, humorous, and very generous is lackadaisical Bob. But everyone (including the femmes) will remember his beaming smile. His congeniality and thoughtfulness will irry him through a successful and happy life. Soccer 4; Crew 4, ,v Hop Committee 1: 1.

Starting off with a bang, Bucky wanted to be both good student and athlete, so Plebe summer found him out for his favorite sports of boxing, wrestling, and crew coxswain. How- ever, when the trees enveloped him in their branches, he decided that one thing well done is better than two halfway — he dropped athletics.

Sometimes known as Bill and other times as Jim or Jimmy, he ' s always the same smiling sincere character. With eagerness and determination, Jimmy came directly to the Naval Academy from Forest Park High School in Balti- more. We are aware of Jim ' s sterling inheritance as a supple-bodied athlete, with Irish determination, and natural nautical interests. Perhaps his knowledge and ability in boat handling drew his interest to the Severn and to the long oars of crew. Too light to wield an oar with the Academy ' s six-footers, he was chosen as manager of crew early in his second class year. Although too light to participate in the major sports, he is their greatest supporter. Here is the portrayal of will and determination.

It didn ' t matter to him what went down in the little red hook, he applied himself to a subjecr for what it was worth. He found his best times in Dahlgren Hall at a fast game of basketball, or at a full evening of dancing, and afternoon or evening, he alwavs enjoyed coming back exhausted. He changed his hobby with every wind, from " piano in seven easy lessons " to amateur radio, then to astronomy. He read philosophy hoping to find his own. He was seldom satisfied, bur always contented; never in a hurry, but always looking for a minute to turn into profit. His room w as a happy room; his ship will be a happy ship.

A conscientious worker, he even tried to find out second class year what " Thermo " was all about. He suffers from mild insanity on the subject of fresh air. Boxes of all sizes, laundry string, and wrapping paper are among the articles which must be scrupulously saved for some future emergency. All attempts to draw him into argument have been fruitless.

He knew rather more of what was in store for him than the aver- age candidate, but will still maintain in his stronger moments that he took the right road back there. " Wiggy " prides himself on having cos- mopolitan tendencies and with justification. Plugged to be a swimmer, succeeded in being a super-snake, and if he had maintained his course in civilian life would probably have turned out to be a first-class lawyer.

No one, not even a Farragut, Jr., could have come to the Academy with more tradition of the sea be- hind him. Rafe is neither a confirmed snake nor an ultra savoir, but he has had his big moments in his dealings with both books and fair ladies. When he ' s quiet, he is unmistakably so; when he ' s loud — well, they never made one louder — temperamental it is sometimes called. Good-natured, gener- ous, true-blue — that ' s the lad.

Joe says the music is the greatest attraction, and his actions bear him out. Waking with a song, singing thru most of the day, he changes to a violin for orchestra practice three nights a week, and between times entertains him- self by blowing a mean harmonica. Any week day Joe can be found swimming, wrestling, or playing tennis. Academically he is one of those ucky boys between the unsats and the star men, without the cares of either. His other virtues are pounding a typewriter while taking news broadcasts in code, and saving small change to spend in one lump. A true helpmate, here ' s to you Joe.

After taking two reexams to convince the Steam De- partment that his sketches weren ' t absolutely unfathomable, Pat stayed on, academically unthreatened. During the years, idle afternoons were rare, for in tennis, soccer, and basketball, he displayed his athletic abili- ties. Socially, Pat has constantly made new friends, both fair and male, until their number and variety are astonishing. His technique with the fair has never failed, but no one girl has yet been able to blind him to the charms of another.

Imbued with a home training that will never he forgotten even in the ol ' Nyvee, he has always found an attraction in the liner things of life. Clark found life a bit different here when he first hit these Eastern shores, but the first thing he did was to smile and calmly survey the scene. It was that same smile and esprit that enabled him to attack with success the heart of every person exposed to his cherubic countenance and strong personality. Never much troubled with academics, Speedy made his life a series of attempts at self-improve- ment. The pool, the classics, and good music have been his greatest loves and have combined to make this boy who came, saw, and conquered, a cultured man.

Regulations and routine he earnestly adopted, even to the point of turning back his mattress at home on his first leave. Academics weren ' t so readily absorbed, but trials of his first two years revealed an amazing capacity for work. Cheerfully, if sheepishly, Herb admits that he likes all the girls, but he denies having made any choice. In music, reading, and informal athletics his tastes strike an enviable combination. We don ' t remember how many times he has been pinned down flat in tussles with a man twice his small size.

Sometimes he is engaged in model ship building, and always he is busy fixing the radio. Radio is his hobby, one at which he has great skill.

He led the academic lineup a merry chase from star to bilge and back again, for his brilliance in Dago was more than counterbalanced by a dullness of comprehension in Steam which at times bordered on downright ignorance. A delightful indifference and a whimsical nature combine to make Gus a thoroughly likeable chap despite a failing for perpetrating devilish machinations, vociferating poetical tirades, exploding tempestuously — and using big words.

In athletics his success has been only moderate — a shortcoming ex- plained perhaps by his frequent attendance at hops. However, it is for his ability to bring a smile to even the most bewildered face at the end of a long steam drill and his unfailing willingness to let others benefit from his prowess at academics — especially Dago — that Jim is most valued as a classmate and a friend.

Having had two years at Mississippi State, Van found it not hard to star and have plenty of time to work on Log finances and write letters by the dozen. Of course his mail reached a stag- gering total each day, at one time requiring a rile to keep the fair writers straight.

However, his long stay in Brazil really puts him from south of somewhere at least. To tell the truth, though, traveling is the least of his accomplishments, for " Money " is quite a versatile man, be it solving crossword puzzles, sending orchids to fai r maidens, booting a soccer ball around, or uncovering the hidden meaning behind that Bull lesson.

HENRY SMITH JACKSON Melrose, Massachusetts " hank " " jack " IN the summer of nineteen thirty-four the Bay State presented the Navy with this hot-headed, happy-go-lucky fellow who, despite the changes that the Academy tends to make in personal characteristics, has retained his Yankee ideas, traits, and accent. His advancement to date has been noteworthy as regards studies, a fact clearly shown by his class standing. His interest in sports is varied, and he is willing to back the athletic representatives of Boston at any time at any odds with either might or money. No doubt Hank will proceed a long way in the naval service for he realizes what the Navy needs, what makes the wheels go around, and that a man cannot fly on one wing. ££ Boxing 4; Track 4; Boat Club; tenant ( .£.)• 314 CLARENCE AGEE MELVIN Selma, Alabama A GEE is the second Melvin to enter the Naval Academy from Alabama. l _ Northern prep schools have made his speech cosmopolitan, although he does relapse into that southern drawl at times.

Maybe being a Navy Junior instilled in him his love of the Service, but whatever it was, the old spirit is still there. Harry gladly stops taking pictures long enough to tell one and all what a great life this Navy is. Although addicted to writing letters to men of note, he can always get answers to his 4.0 line of Bull. Snakes often gave thanks that Harry ' s in- terests always remained on the West Coast.

Although a " College Joe " by virtue of tours of study at Albright and Pennsylvania, he is a true Red Mike. His weaker moments are spent in the pursuit and collection of stamps, skulking be- hind scenes with the Stage Gang, or " master-minding " the Class pho- tography. His other relaxations are smoking vile pipes and helping class- mates breast the academic tides. Pennsylvania lost a stalwart son when Ozzie answered the sea ' s siren, and his partner will lose the best of room- mates at graduation.

With his fighting heart, generosity, and com- placent personality, we know he ' ll always get along. He ' s liked, and very well liked, just because of himself. Good-natured? Easy-going?

A lazy stride gets him places with minimum effort. With a mild interest, Lee views sports, academics, and current news. With a quickened interest, he views an apple. Apples, you see, are his weakness. For Lee there are no secret ambitions; he wants to become a naval officer. He has a fathomless reserve of good nature that makes friends of all who know him and keeps them. He will laugh at your jokes, stand your week-end watches, or give you his last cigarette. One can have no better friend. Happy voyages, Shipmate! Wrestling 4, 1; Black N; Ensign CHARLES ELLSWORTH POND Franklin, Virginia MOST of the regiment marches in front of Charlie, but he is one of the biggest little men in the fourth platoon. Two years in the service before coming to the Academy taught him how to take it, and he has been taking it from the Dago and Steam Departments ever since. The ability to produce in a pinch, however, has kept him among us. Charlie ' s personality and popularitv have probablv earned him more nicknames than any other man in the class. He is not a woman hater, but seldom drags, apparently preferring the stag line. Extensive travel has failed to disturb Charlie ' s firm belief that his native state of Virginia is God ' s own country. At home or abroad, Charlie, we wish you the good luck you deserve.

Blessed with an extra share of muscle, he has done his part for the honor of Navy in athletics, working day after day on the football squad in the fall, throwing the heaviest wrestlers around the ring in the winter, and wielding a la- crosse stick in the spring. French being his native tongue, he couldn ' t un- derstand the difficulty the rest of us had with Dago; small wonder he was popular with those who didn ' t come by it so naturally. Friendly, un- selfish, working hard but unobtrusivelv, Minnie is a shipmate who can be depended upon to pull his full share of the load. He is an ideal roommate and a loval friend.

However, when Ben put on his first pair of shoes and looked out from under that many-sizes-too-large hat, he must have been inspired to greater things than ' chuck hunting. Though he has been known to assume either side of an argument without apparent rhyme or reason, his ideas on the service have been as definite and as firm as his desire to join the Fleet. Bulldog tenacity to an ambition will delineate Buckshot ' s character. To Ben, upon whom I can depend for anything from stamps to a pair of shoes, happy landfalls. Track 4, i; Lieutenant (j-g.)

Placing athletics near the top of the list, he gave his best to football until he decided that track was his one true love. " Where ' s George? " " Out working on the hurdles. " And that holds true even in the midst of winter. He has not broken any records yet but is still dreaming of it. He has an utter contempt for pipe smoking, drags occa- sionally, stays off the trees, and never knows the time of the next forma- tion.

He came to us from the great state of Pennsyl- vania, in order to find what makes the wheels go around, and a mighty fine job he has made of it. Academics are the least in his thoughts. By his very frequent dragging and attendance at the various social events he has caused many a feminine heart to flutter. But outside of the social whir Bob is one of the mainstays of the fencing team. Possessing a voice of no mean quality, he has been a member of the choir for four years.

Perhaps he is somewhat too full of civic pride, for he is inordinately proud of anything associated with Evanston. " Steam " seems to blow right by Bud ' s brain like a hurricane, leaving all behind desolate, except for the trees, which will always remain, sturdy things that they are. Rarely has he left early any examination, for he proceeds slowly, regarding suspiciously each ambiguous phrase. Somewhere within Bud is an interest in public speaking which best shows itself in fluent conversation accompanied by a pleasant smile that has won him many friends. Bud has been a splendid roommate, and, in spite of the twenty-six letters of his name, his admirable person- ality will enable him to get along well wherever he goes.

His comebacks are usually terrific puns which never fail to floor opponents, either by their wit or obvious lack thereof. So far the second is the eternal case, but you have to give him credit for trying. Other vices include an ungovernable passion for platinum blondes, though he works ust as well with brunettes, and a singing technique all his own Still it all adds up to a pretty swell guy who will get somewhere.

In June of 1934 he made good the first step in that direc- tion and became a part of the amateurs to be molded into the finished naval officer. During the four years with us Bob has shown a willing spirit and a stubborn determination to succeed whether battling in the ring along with the rest of Spike ' s boys or with the Academic Departments. We who have known Bob well can tell you that he has a brand of Irish humor and a gen- erous disposition that make him the best sort of a friend, and they will carry him far.

Now and then his views have not coincided with those of the Academic Departments, but he ' s always beaten them to the punch.

This life of travelling has instilled in Tommy a deep love for the tropics and made him, too, a Dago savoir of the first order. His cheerful smile, happy-go-lucky attitude, and high sense of personal honor have won him countless friends here at the Naval Academy. Although Tommy isn ' t a renowned athlete, he plays an excellent game of tennis. He claims that women do not appeal to him, but the Post Office receives much of its revenue from him just the same. Pet aversions are mechanical drawing, cold days, and crooners. To Tommy — a real friend and a true gentleman. Football 4 ; Black N ; G. P. 0. ■:. ' h ■•, " ■ • " J T;V V Y Y . Y •j ; :.it- !.

Unfailing good na- ture coupled with a quiet, unassuming manner is among the greatest as- sets anvone can possess. Abie has them both and so has won and deserved his host of friends at the Academy. Like most of the rest of us, Alto found that there are many things easier than academics. But his determination and perseverance have made it easy to see why the Civil War lasted four years, too. Though he doesn ' t claim to be a snake, still he is not often found in the stag line. He appreciates a joke, even when it ' s on himself. Ask him about that South Carolina icebox sometime.

Never too light-hearted, though, for he excels in the academics from Nav. to Bull and speaks French in the savvy sections. His athletic activities are widely varied from mastering swim- ming in the fall to sprinting down the track in the snow or sun, the aquatic gymnastics being more than balanced by the green-bordered " N " on his sweater. Reading is more than a hobby with Ace for when he ' s boning " Time " or the daily bumwad nothing less than the scent of chow can stir him.

He quickly adapted himself to life at the Nava Academy and became a hard-working Plebe. His only attempts at ath- letics lasted but a few weeks, and with the advent of academics he gave up sports completely in favor of the " sub squad. " His two years at North Dakota helped him tremendously to get started, but Youngster year he lost his stars and has been plugging ever since. It would be hard to find a better roommate, for, although he occasionally turns the radio on too loud, he is usually quiet, going about his own work, but always willing to help others. With his determination to let nothing slip past him Fred will make a success of his life. Lacrosse Manager 4; M. P.

Only one ob- stacle stood in the path of success after he became a midshipman. Gaines just didn ' t cooperate with the Dago Department and Plebe year found him an ardent worshipper of Tecumseh. Determination and effort were re- warded and Gaines continued his career in the Navy. In the realm of extra- curricular activities he prefers to discharge his social responsibilities, and on no day nor even hour of town liberty could he be found within the grey- walls.

A Red Mike at heart and a born conver- sationalist, Pete ' s numerous discourses upon the dependability of the daughters of Eve are equalled only by his pertinent ridicule of the Execu- tive Department, which still fails to make him eligible for his Black N.

A clear mind and an attitude of " I gotta get this stuff " kept him ahead of the Academic Departments by a wide margin. But don ' t tell him he ' s savvy or he ' ll beat your ears in, smiling modestly all the time. The constant fear of a misplaced chest keeps him in athletic gear every afternoon. Possessing a keen eye for blondes, he has set his dragging average at a new high and has developed an intense dislike of stags.

Then, in deference to the academic standing of his classmates, he took up the study of current weekly and monthly literature. However, the academics received the neces- sary attention and suffered defeat as a consequence. " What time is forma- tion?

Along with playing unorganized basketball and eternally reading, Swede enjoys deceiving himself about women — par- ticularly Philadelphia ' s.

But in sub- chasers, on destroyer bridges, in wee sma ' hours with sextant in hand, we have learned well the elements of the stadimeter and H. O. 2.11. " Longitude west, Greenwich time is still best.

" From the first days of Plebe Summer spent on the Rifle Range to the final days in Ballistics and Fire Control, we have labored, lamented, and learned, under the exacting instruc- tion of the Ordnance Department, the essentials and groundwork of naval gun- aery. In the Pistol Gallery, in turrets and broadside batteries on the Cruise we saw the practical demonstration of " It ' s the shots that hit that count! " The mysteries of the bomb sight, the in- evitable torpedo, the solution of the trajectory in air we boned and mastered. In the pursuit of a career that demands " more hits per gun per minute, " we fledglings learned to respect the austere denizens of the Armory ' s cubby holes, whose tireless efforts now send to the Fleet men well-trained that the might of her ships may not wane.

" That the Navy may be officered bv gentlemen familiar with history and literature, fluent in their speech, and deft in writing in lucid, concise, and forceful terms, the Bull Department wields its influence throughout our so- journ from Plebe to first classman. Initiated into the mechanics of compo- sition, the Plebes progressed into analy- sis of the Romanticists and their for- bears. Youngsters found the tales of Naval History a fascinating study, while second classmen read, marked, and learned the philosophies of Tolstoi, Balzac, and Ibsen. The details of Euro- pean History and their effect on current events, the consumption of cigars at After Dinner Speaking, and arduous labors expended on theses taxed the energies of staid first classmen.

" The wide- spread peregrinations of a naval officer demand the use of a foreign tongue, and, to equip him with this ability, the Dago Department shares its part in our cur- riculum. The opportunities of Youngster Cruise at once dispelled fears conjured up by Plebe trees — remember the boy who confused " damen " with " herren " ? When we manned the rail for foreign monarchs and they came aboard with attaches, accomplished linguists, then did we appreciate the advantages of abilitv to speak a strange language fluentlv. The onerous clashes with " dictes, " the pseudo transactions with purveyors of provisions and fuel, the study of foreign versions of modern naval engagements, laid before us the need of diligent application. Someday there ' ll be no jovial " 4.0 Fournon " to prompt the boarding officer, but he ' ll emerge with flying colors, for these lessons will not soon be forgotten. 364 PHYSICAL TRAINING T7ALL out, take off your ' joiseys, ' - - fall in again!

With the elemental requirements of rope-climbing and swimming an ap- proved crawl once surmounted, what midshipman has not enjoyed long hours spent grunting on the wrestling mat, jogging about the track, or flailing a stout lacrosse stick. Not only to make him trim and fit, but to train the junior officer to take an active part in Fleet athletics, Mr. Mang and his associates direct the activities of MacDonough Hall.

" Sanitation, the best of living conditions, and per- sonal health, are prime essentials on board a warship, and it is of import that every officer be acquainted with the principles of hygiene. Tis a far cry from the era of scurvy and hardtack to the present day, when the ship ' s company is efficiently and thoroughly ministered to in well-equipped sick bays, spotless galleys, and dining halls; and an officer today must be all the more mindful of the health of his men and himself. To this end, the Hygiene Department inter- jects our lone lecture course into busy days to mitigate the academic trials of stoic first classmen. Memorable are the trees that looked like striper muster lists and that once chalked up the all-time record monthly mark of .33; the " com- munity " recitation system; the practical value of the Doctor ' s lessons. The potent evil of obnoxious mosquitoes, the func- tions of the body ' s organs, the normal guides to good health we learned to re- member when experience afloat demands their application. 366 EXECUTIVE QAIL ho! Two points on the port quarter, sir! " The duty officer strides by, the symbol of authority, but upon him and the officers of his department devolves the task of molding leaders, alert to obey, fit to command. To initiate each man into the devious channels of " the system; " to exact of him the Navy ' s standards of thoroughness, fidel- ity, and duty; to produce an officer of character and ability; we ' ve stood watches, frapped the pap, and drawn swords. With the heritage of John Paul Jones, Farragut, and Byrd to inspire him, each man has endured the duress of routine and discipline to anticipate his naval career with ambition and high resolve. That officers of the Navy are regarded as able representatives of their country, that they are well-trained to command men o ' war and defend a great nation may be ascribed in due measure to the endeavors of the Com- mandant ' s department.

Hank Hardwick as OTC, Navy opened its 1937 season with a fine display of scoring ability bv rolling up a 45-0 victory over the traditional first game opponents — William and Mary. But as far as scores are to be considered, this first game proved to be the Abhou Ben Adam hv leading all the rest. A season graph would show a steady drop in scores through the next two games, crossing the zero line with a 0-0 tie with Harvard in the Baltimore Municipal Stadium, and remaining below the zero line for the remainder of the season except for one return to pay dirt occasioned by a wonderful display of regimental spirit and a 13-6 victory over Columbia. However, this effort was followed by a return to the wrong side of the fence with a bad day against Princeton, and a w i ■■■• • s - f r tli.x ,. 1 ' W . " I - wife a r- . ' .. s- .» Penn Blocked . . . heart-breaking 6-0 defeat at the heels of the Army mule on the last and wettest Saturday of November. A rather disappointing season from the victory angle was more than offset by the development of team loyalty and regimental spirit culminating in the greatest exhibition of enthusiasm and hubbah-hubbah, during the entire week preceding the Columbia game that old Bancroft has absorbed in many a year. One of the biggest points in the ' 37 season was the show of fighting spirit and football ability among the underclass mem- bers of the team. At the start of the season, all hands considered the senior combination of Antrim, McFarland, Case, and Ingram, Vw 426 €— " k FOOTBALL with Reimann as chief watch-reliever, as the settled first string backheld. But as the season rolled along, Cooke and Franks of the second class, and Whitehead and Wood of the third class, moved up to run with Antrim as the first string backheld. In the line, the playing of such underclassmen as Wallace at center, Bergner and Hysong at tackle, Powell and Corbett at end, and Spector at guard caused their names to appear on the majority of starting line-ups, and spells out a prophecy for the Hudson Bluff boys, and the rest of the. ' 38 opponents. On looking back, the general opinion is that none of the season ' s scores were true indications of Navy ' s relative strength. However, no alibi is offered as superior playing was often offset by bad " breaks. " The games in succession, offered the following interest- ing details: The season ' s opener showed the public a fine Navy team starring as a whole rather than as individuals. The questioned center position found the flawless passing of Fincher and Wallace as a welcomed answer. Two touchdowns were made against William and Mary in the first quarter with the prettiest play of the game being climaxed by the second touchdown. This play started as a wide end run by Ingram, but after traversing half the held, he stopped and heaved a 35 vard pass to Powell who promptlv carried the ball over. The second quarter saw Coach Hardwick inaugurating his policy of sub- 427 £ «« £ Case Player Hysong Emrich stituting a few men at a time and the Indians held their ground fairly well until the half. The first string returned to the game during the third period but were almost entirely replaced by the second string who plaved remarkably during the last quarter. The fine spirited plavin of Bunch was the visitor ' s outstanding contribution, while the line bucking of McFarland and Reimann pleased the Navy crowd. The 45-0 result was a bit more than was expected. Antr.m The second game of the season brought a fighting team of Cadets from the Citadel, who won the admiration of every Navy fan by a splendid exhibition of clean, spirited play against a superior team. The boys from the south presented one of the hardest running attacks seen in Annapolis all season, and they held the Midshipmen to one touchdown during the first half, which was scored by Wood. This game was something of a team prophecy as Cooke and Wood served notice to the first class backfield. The second half brought the Navy total to 32. points, but the southern lads stopped fighting only at the final whistle. King, the visiting captain and brother of the King of West Point football fame, turned in a fine defensive game, while Robinson repeatedly exerted the Navy secondaries in vain efforts to prevent a shutout. To Virginia fell the honor of being the first to cross Navy ' s goal line. Considered as a step- ping stone for the Harvard game, the Cavaliers tossed a real scare into the Middies, and only a splendid fourth quarter gave Navv a 40-13 victory. At the half the score was tied, and at the end of the third quarter, Navy led by only one touchdown. The fourth quarter witnessed a grand goal line stand by the Salts in response to a desperate scoring gesture bv the Virginians. But with that thrust halted, Navy immediately turned on the man power and the defense of the visitor ' s wearily fell apart. In- gram ' s injury gave Cooke an op- portunity which he made the x,: most of. Whitehead also entered lli ' l Dul ' l IliiiMdnut HuirtVkK 428 Lynch Ingram Wo the game to score in the last quarter, and showed plenty of offensive ability. Males, for the second year, proved the visitor ' s best. The first out of town game presented Navy a scoreless tie with Harvard in Baltimore Municipal Stadium. This game was replete with thrills, near touchdowns, and plenty of boners. But Harvard, undefeated until the Navy game, almost had to win, both to revenge the previous year ' s defeat, and to raise Harlow ' s prestige in his old home town. The Harvard boys copped all the first half bows, un- Cooke covering a mystifying single wing formation with Vernon Struck as the nucleus, but with the ball being given to either Foley or Oakes. Twice in this half, Oakes tossed beautiful passes to Foley who dropped both on the 5 yard line without a man being in reach of him. Another pass from Oakes to Green was carried by the latter to Navy ' s 4 yard line where Cooke, after an amazing display of cross-field speed, tripped him up. A fine goal line stand found the ball going to Navy on our own 16 yard line. The second half belonged to Navy because of superior power. The final play of the game proved to be the most thrilling, as Ingram, entering late in the fourth quarter, tossed a pass to Powell, who was forced out on the 3 yard line. But the final gun had been fired with the ball in air. Navy ' s game with Notre Dame was played at South Bend in a light snowstorm. Her 9-7 victory revenged the 3-0 defeat handed the Irish the year before, in Baltimore, when Ingram ' s drop- kick was the deciding factor. A story book finish by the fighting Irish, after being badly mauled in the first half, gave them a fourth quarter victory. The game opened with Navy taking the kickoff on her 34 yard line, then driving straight down the field to the opponent ' s 13, with Cooke carrying the ball 10 straight times. There Notre Dame held but the score was merelv delayed as a fumble bv Thesing was recovered by Gunderson, quicklv converted into a touchdown by Cooke, Coaches: Schacht, Miller, HarJuick, Wilson, Dornin 429 with Wood placekicking the extra point. Another march in the second period ended on the Notre Dame 2.2. yard line because of mixed signals. However, the Irish made only one first down, and had possession of the ball in Navy territory only once during the first half. Franks, Antrim, and Lynch were towers of strength on the de- fense. In the second half, the navy team, with few substitutions, and minus the mudcleats and rubberized trou of the Irish, held until the open- ing of the fourth quarter, when McCarthy cut through center and ran for a touchdown. Puplis then entered the game and placekicked the extra point. A second touchdown was prevented by Reimann who knocked Puplis out of bounds on Navy ' s 10 yard marker, after a 50 yard return of Cooke ' s punt. McCarthy ' s fumble was recovered on the 5 yard line, but McFarland, receiving a low pass from center, fumbled his attempt to punt, and was downed for a safety by Notre Dame. These 2. points proved the winning margin. The Navy-Penn game found the big blue team (in white) a bit off-form, and definitely out of luck. But the 14-7 final doesn ' t do justice to the power and development shown by Navy. Nor does it inform one of Wood ' s 72. yard run, right smack through the whole Penn team, for a touch- down — only to have it nullified because of the only offside penalty of the game. Penn scored twice in the second period with one tally the result of a blocked punt that bounced wrong for us and right for them. Navy ' s lone score was made by Wood on a short plunge, in the third E3 91_1SA 9 ' ™ If ■ J 35 B5 25 Back Row: Whitehead, Powell, Wor- den, Player, Fleps, Bergner, Holo- vak, Gurnee, McMullen, Dornia.

The Columbia game, the last home game of the season, proved to be Navy ' s last victory. Navy spirit was high as the result of the preceed- ing week ' s pep rallies. Despite the remarkable playing and passing of Columbia ' s Luckman, Navy didn ' t let the home folks down, although everyone left the stadium with a wholesome respect for Lion Luckman. Cooke was in his usual fine form and Wood and McFarland turned in excellent supporting roles. But Luckman ' s accurate passing and punting, in spite of the fast charging Navy line with Bergner, Fike, and Player as the spearheads, stamped him as the game ' s hero. Navy ' s fine running attack with Wood and Cooke totin ' the pigskin, gained Navy its first counter in the first period. But Luckman ' s passing proved a constant threat to the Middies and netted the Lions their only touchdown, in the third period with Radvilas receiving and carrying the ball over. McFarland, who replaced the injured Wood near the close of the second quarter, twice saved the day by knocking down Luckman ' s passes into the end zone. But it remained for Franks to salt the game away by intercepting another of Luckman ' s passes in the final quarter, and running 50 yards for a touchdown to give Navy a 13-6 victory. The Princeton game proved a big disappoint- ment for the Navy followers.

The Princeton line finally hit it ' s stride and clicked as a well- knit unit. The tiger scored in the first 3 minutes on a pass, and continued to hold the upper hand with Navy ' s last desperate passing attack in the fourth quarter being stopped bv an interception. Princeton ' s Jack White, playing his last season in a tiger skin, brought everyone to their feet by a 73 vard dash for the final touchdown. Navy ' s lone score came as the result of a 58 vard punt return by Wood in the second quarter, and was magnified in im- portance because of its being the first Navy score in Princeton since 193 1. Bergner ' s injurv in the fourth quarter, which put him out for the rest of the season, was Navy ' s biggest loss. The punting of Wilson and Craig, the fine Armv line, and the rain, were the chief points of the Army game. Army ' s defensive strength centered around Hart- line, a powerful center, and was of such calibre that in the first half Navy moved no nearer West Point ' s goal than the Armv ' s 49. Wilson ' s remarkable kicking featured the first half with successive boots going out on the 11, 13, iz, and 19 yard lines. Army ' s winning score came in the first quarter after Cooke, as safety man, twice knifed through interference to spill goalward bound Kaydets, the last being on the 2. yard line. From there, Craig plunged over in 1 tries. Navy dis- played more power in the second half with Wood receiving the opening kickoff Bergner Franks jphi ros Jarvis 432 on his own 35 yard line, then alternating with Cooke in carrying it to Army ' s c6 where Army won the ball on downs. This was Navy ' s last scoring threat. White- head ' s willowy style oi ball carrying proved effective in gaining yardage, and along with Wood and Cooke, provided Navy ' s offensive strength. Bob Antrim, in his swan role, won the admiration of 101,000 spectators for his line line-backing. One of his vicious blocks against Jack Rvan on an off tackle sweep by the Army man, caused the West Pointer to be carried from the field. " B " SQUAD The " B ' s " opened their ' 37 season by crushing Western Maryland 44-0. Pennsyl- vania, with a baffling five-man defense was the next to try its luck, only to be left holding the wrong end of a 33-0 shutout. The Junior Varsity then ran roughshod over Rutgers to roll up a fantastic 119-0 score and tie an old Navv record. Temple ' s Owls were the fourth, last and toughest victims. Navy ' s 13-7 lead at the half was boosted bv a 70-yard touchdown gallop by Graves at the opening of the third quarter. But Temple came back to score twice in suc- cession and led 2.1-19 until Graves ' field goal from the 15 gave Navy a zl-li vic- tory. Mayo, Muse, Graves, and Holovak in the backheld and Schlacks, Rynd, and Giffen in the line contributed much to the power and spirit of the squad and were continuous threats to those holding down varsity berths.

BASKETBALL I.VM II WELL-STOCKED with returning regulars, the Navy basketball team commenced an auspicious season that boasted eleven vic- tories and lamented three defeats, including the disappointing reversal in the titular Army game. Duke fell first in the campaign. Bobby Gillette led a whirlwind attack, scoring 14 points on his own, and the final score was Navy 43 — Duke 30. Practically the entire squad played against the much-heralded Blue Devils. Virginia followed close on Duke ' s heels and met the same fate, Navy 36 — Virginia 14. John Wilson ' s men displayed great improvement in their approach game and their shooting. Again the entire squad entered the game to win from the Cavaliers, heretofore undefeated. The following Saturday University of Pennsylvania took Navy into camp and walloped them 47 to 36. Alan McFarland distinguished himself as Navy ' s high point man with 18 points. Navy ' s long pass plays nettled Perm ' s men, but the Palestra, nevertheless, proved the scene of Navy ' s first defeat. Gettysburg in the succeeding game atoned for Navy ' s initial loss, succumbing at the end of a thrilling game with a score of 36 to 31. Laney ' s three successive field goals and Coach Wilson ' s strategy of rush- ing eased critical moments, dissipating the threat of high scorer Bommer of the Bullets, and Ghesquiere ' s good foul shots assured Navy ' s win. 434 Navy ' s speed, height, coordination, and reserves completely annihi- lated Western Maryland — 50-16, although Navy ' s faulty marksmanship was conspicuous for its net of ii baskets in 80 tries. The University of Baltimore could combat its odds with speed, but its efforts could not thwart a victory of 56-31. George Ghesquiere captured high point honors, and Bill Ingram ' s fine guarding was augmented by his scoring three baskets. The hardest game of the season completed was with Washington and Jefferson, whose fast passing and consistent breaking of Navy ' s close zone defense brought 34 points, but Navy gathered in 40, largely be- cause of the spark furnished by Ghesquiere and the fine game turned in by McFarland and Laney. Peculiar for its spectacular rallies at the close of each half, University of Maryland could not stave off Navy ' s flurry of goals at the beginning of both halves and lost a see-saw battle 37-34. Particularly baffling to the midshipmen was Maryland ' s well-played zone defense. However, it was not effective enough to ever threaten Navy ' s early lead, and for the third successive time Ghesquiere was high-point man, counting five times. The Columbia men, old rivals, Eastern Intercollegiate runner-ups with Penn, finally experienced a turning of the tables. Navy won 38 to 2.9, scoring its eighth straight victory. Again Ghesquiere stood out as the Lions were rushed off their feet. The most impressive score of the season, 61-zo, recorded William and Mary ' s disastrous game, directly ascribed to the brilliant plav of " short stuff " Gillette. Virginia Military Institute lost 46 to 32. as the second and third strings joined the varsity in scoring Navy ' s tenth straight victory. Smith, Off. Rep. Wilson, Coach 435 »v -- Temple disrupted Navy ' s fine season in the most mad-cap, hair-raising game of the en- tire season. Heavy favorites, Temple launch- ed a professional attack with Shileds, Bloom, and Boyle displaying terrific speed and re- markable shooting- more on the style of Stanford and Long Island University. The final result, Temple 61 — Navy 58, was the end of a battle that found the score tied seven times during the game. Ghesquiere shone as high point man for the game with 14 points; McFarland trailed on his heels with 19; and Temple ' s aces followed in close succession. Mansfield and Ingram performed superbly at guard. This was by far the Navy ' s finest play of the entire year. Catholic University could not withstand the wake of Navy ' s terrific battle with Temple, the preceding game, but the fish- eaters staged stubborn opposition before los- ing 57 to 33. Alan McFarland played the best game of his career, scoring seven times from the court an d capitalizing on eight out of nine foul shots. George Ghesquiere was next Navy high score man with ten points. Navv got under way in whirlwind style and rolled up 15 points to their opponents ' first ten minutes ' collection of 4 points, at which the tally rested at half time. The second half required the Navy varsity for all but three minutes, but the Catholic men, nevertheless, stiffened their defense, outplayed Navy 30 to 2.2., only to bow to the final score, 57 to 33. After this fine season ' s play the Army game at West Point, February z6th, was an un- fortunate climax. Navy entered the contest with but two defeats — Penn and Temple; Army had incurred one at the hands of Yale. Without the assistance of its towering center. Tiny Lvnch, Navy ' s line-up did not compare favorably with that of Army, thoroughly primed with its ace, Brinker, and McDavid at forwards, Rogner, the lone first classman, at center, and Samuel and Sullivan at guards. Thus, the Kaydets were conceded the edge in pre-game speculations; these were substantiated as the game progressed, since Navy was not quite in its expected form. Navy opened up well and held the lead for the first six minutes, employing a quick break Follow ! Ingram Lanbi Mansfield . 18 RlNDSKOPF 436 Second String in Action Going Up ? from zone defense. Unluckily, that proved to be right up Army ' s alley, and shortly Army was penetrating the opposing defense at will. Brinker set the pace for his teammates, and at the half the score stood Army, xz— Navy, 18. With the beginning of the second half Navy shifted her hapless break from the zone defense to a man-to-man defense, but their strategy was futile. Laney was forced from the game with a bad leg, and Lynch played for a brief interval — exceedingly well despite his bad knee and brace. Navy was in decidedly poor fettle, Captain Alan McFarland serving as the onlv bulwark against the disappointing let down as he played a beautiful, all-around game and made Navy ' s high score of 13 points. Jack Mansfield and Spider Ingram were again the fine guards. Army ' s Brinker surpassed McFarland with a total of 19 for the high point honors of the day. The final score was an unhappy reminder of the first half, equaling exactly twice the half-time reading: Army 44— Navy 36. The standing in the series of service games is now Navy, 8 victories — Army, 7. Johnny Wilson thus ended his iith season as Navy ' s basketball coach. His assistant was Lt. G. K. Carmichael. Prospects for the 38-39 season are excellent, for returning regulars are: Gillette, Ghesquiere, Laney, Geis, Dinsmore, and Royalty. The season ' s final summary indi- cates a most creditable record: Out of 14 games played, Navy won 11, lost but 3.

BASEBALL 1937 BASEBALL is generally considered as being the true harbinger of spring, even more reliable than that old malady known as " spring fever. " Yet, this supposition is not strictly true, for long before warm weather anchors in, practice has begun, and some games have been played. The team this year was characterized by its newness. Marty Karow, a former Ohio State athlete, as the new coach headed the list of newcomers while several of last year ' s plebe squad developed into material capable of filling Varsity positions. Outstanding among these Youngsters was the battery composed of Jerry Bruckel as pitcher and Eddie O ' Herron as catcher. New additions from the Second Class included Lem Cooke at third, McGuinness at short, Thompson, the steadiest fielder on the team, at second, and Ralph Mann, the clean-up man, as patroller of the right field. Veterans from the previous season filled the remaining posts with Anderson and Ingram of the outfield providing most of the hitting power in addition to doing excellent jobs of cutting down on opponents ' potential hits. First base was held down by Captain Matheson, the most consistent hitter on the squad. Schroeder, McFarland, Sbisa, and Pace composed the alternate infield, either as a unit or individually. Out- standing also were McKay and Eliot in the box, Adair receiving, and Lucian Powell, general utility man, whose chief assets lay in his speed and smart base-running. 438 The season opened with Navy losing a close game to Vermont, the winning run being scored in the ninth inning. The following week, Navy avenged itself at the expense of Harvard in a free-hitting game, with the final score resting at Navy n — Harvard 10. This victory over Harvard, however, did not mean that the next big three opponents would go down any easier, as the next Saturday Princeton collected four runs after two outs had been made in the ninth inning to present them with a 7-z victory. The third game of the season saw Navy stock on the rise. Gettysburg jumped to a quick lead because of two walks and a home run. The home team duplicated that score by two walks, a double by Ralph Mann, and an error which permitted him to slide home. The visitors again took the lead through the medium of a home run with a man on base, but Navv rallied to win 6-5. The Michigan game started perfectly for the midshipmen. In the first inning, with three men on base, Anderson took the opposing pitcher out of trouble by connecting for the circuit. Four more runs in the third proved to be sufficient for Navy to win handily 8-2.. Then, on April 19, the nine experienced something out of the ordinary in an exhibition game with the Baltimore Orioles, a professional club. Although the home talent made a creditable showing, experience and superior batting power gave the pros a 9-6 victory. On the first of May, Navy copped a close one from William and Mary on its first sally into enemy territory. The final score stood at 9 to 8 with Pete Powell supplying the winning run as the result of his triple and McGuiNNESS DeLany, Off. Rep. Safe 439 -sir --vwS ■ m m - £ Welcome Home Four BASEBALL Matheson ' s single. The succeeding four games were little more than batting practice for the Midshipmen who won by large scores from West Virginia, Temple, Western Mary- land, and Richmond U. Loose fielding by the opponents, and long distance hitting by Mann and Ingram featured these contests. After this last spree, Navy experienced a definite let-down, losing a hair-raiser to Lafayette, and a close one to Georgetown. Exhibitions of good and bad baseball with a large number of personal errors, contributed much to the final scores. In the annual June Week game with West Point, on their own field this time, the Cadets jumped to an early lead with three big runs during their half of the first inning. Navy replied with two runs in the fourth and Anderson tied the score with a homer in the fifth. However, these efforts proved to no avail except to prevent a shut-out, as Army, in a truly lucky seventh inning, salted the game away with four runs — two homers and two triples. Although no N stars materialized, still the ' 37 season may be considered as the most successful of the past few years both in games won, and in the development of players for future campaigns. With Max Bishop, whom we all remember as that truly great Mann Adair Bruckel 440 Bagger Time Lag a la Kavdet second baseman of Connie Mack ' s Phila- delphia Athletics, as the new coach, all looks well for a big ' 38 season. Captain Bill Ingram is in fine shape, and is ready for his best season. The pitching situation is the most promising in many years. We lost very little by graduation, and kept veterans Eliot and Bruckel for the ensuing campaign. The youngsters promise to make the going tough for the regulars. Al Sbisa should be batting within .100 of his claims, which will set an all-time Navy record. All in all, present indications would seem to bode evil for Army in this June Week ' s festivities. YeaTKS, Captain Schumacher, Spear, Yeates, Whiteside, Kittler, Bullard, Erickson, Schultz Rowe, Coxswain CREW 1937 9 " T 7 " HEN word came that the fleets from Columbia, Princeton, Syra- » » cuse, Cornell, Harvard, and Pennsylvania — to say nothing of the powerful Poughkeepsie Armada — were all eager to contest Navy ' s supremacy upon the water, a crippled crew squad gathered in Hubbard Boat House to prepare an answer to all challenges. " Crippled " is the correct adjective, as four varsity, four junior varsity, and two Plebe oarsmen of the 1936 campaign were lost for reasons ranging from gradu- ation to appendicitis. Despite the dreary outlook, Navy went to work in a serious manner. January and February passed swiftly in shake-down cruises and battle practices as the Severn fleet shoved their prows through many miles in snow and rain, in wind and fog. Crew-Admiral Buck Walsh inaugurated m Walsh, Coach r— . w 9 " -—?—„ Tate, Manager Sch UMACHER Erickson 442 his game of checkers and for several weeks boats were continually coming alongside each other and exchanging men in efforts to find the most efficient combination. Adventures to break the monotony of regular practices were not lacking. Per- haps the most memorable was the late winter sinking of the varsity shell. On this occasion the fleet, on returning from the Fisherman ' s Hut Base, on Round Bay, was struck by a heavy easterly squall. After having been forced ashore once to unload water, the Varsity foundered in the heavy seas to windward of the railroad bridge. The quick-thinking Jayvee boat, which had stayed afloat in the small but helpful lee of the varsity, towed their half-frozen comrades two hundred yards to the beach. Pre-season work drew near a close without the perfect combination having been hit upon. Then, on Tuesday before the Columbia invasion, a starboard- stroked varsity with Schultz, Erickson, Bullard, Kittler, Whiteside, Yeates, Spear, Schumacher, and Rowe, sitting from bow aft to Coxswain, bowled over a half mile with a well spaced thirty-four. And a port stroked Jayvee with Knapp, Walker, Charlie Brown, Swift, Suddath, Red Brown, Almgren, Williams, and Hooper, sitting from Coxswain forward stroked right along with them. A powerful Plebe crew came in a close third. A puzzled coach considered the afternoon ' s offerings. The Season — On 2.0 April, a highly heralded Columbia fleet engaged Navy in home waters. The nervous Midshipmen sent out their light cruiser and despatched the enemy Freshmen by three lengths. Bullard McFall, Off. Rep. In the Tank From September 443 r Nxi SCHULTZ Walker, Broun, C. D.; Swift, Suddath, Brown, F. W.; Almgren, Williams, Hooper, Ivnapp, Coxswain The heavy cruiser contest was won by the Navy Jay vees who outranged Columbia six lengths. Then opposing battleships met and the Columbia varsity was sunk five and a half lengths astern. On 6 May, Navy carried the fight into enemy territory, and contested Princeton and Syracuse on Lake Carnegie. The Navy fleet, which had left its light forces at home, completely routed enemy heavy cruisers and battleships. Two weeks later Navy met and won from Cornell in all three races. Conditions were excellent for these races and the varsity came within four seconds of breaking the old Severn River course record. The battle of Schuylkill River took place on isj May. The Navy Plebes and the Jayvees met and defeated their respected opponents quite handily. In the afternoon ' s finale, the Pennsylvania Crew, which kept the lead until within a quarter-mile of the finish, came in third. Navy won by sinking a smooth-stroking Harvard shell a scant third of a length. As a result of this victory Navy was awarded the Adam ' s Cup for the second consecutive year. June Week, with its devastating effects to a crew in training for the National Regatta at Poughkeepsie, arrived and departed, leaving nothing more serious in its wake than a few strained heart strings. On 10 June, the Navy shoved off for its advanced base on the Hudson. Twelve days of rowing, hiking, eating, sleeping, and more rowing followed at Camp Winston Churchill before the big battle. The midshipmen ' s hitherto undefeated light cruiser had scarcely come upon the range when a hit put her port engines out of service. The Sudd v i n 444 forty seconds were costly. Washington, California, Cornell, and Syra- cuse, nosed out the Plebes who, after a game recovery, came in ahead of Columbia. The previously unscathed heavy cruiser of the Navy cut thirty seconds off of the fourteen year old three mile record at Pough- keepsie and still came in three and a half lengths behind Washington who defeated Cornell by more than a quarter of a mile. The varsity crews fought their four mile engagement in very rough water. Washington was again victorious, breaking the old course record by eight seconds, and beating Navy by twelve seconds. Following these two leaders, there came in succession Cornell, Syracuse, California, Columbia, and Wisconsin. Thus ended a happy if not one hundred per cent successful season. The enemy fleets were completely sunk except for the formidable Pough- keepsie Armada, and the results of this last engagement were anything but disappointing. The oarsmen then split up as do all Navy Poughkeepsie crew squads. Two of them went to the fl eet as ensigns; part returned to finish their Second Class Summer at the Academy; and the rest went to Montreal where they boarded the " ANSONIA " and sailed for Europe to join the Practice Squadron. The 1938 Season presents us with a slightly revised first boat and a promise for the greatest crew Navy has ever sent out in competition. Since its Plebe Summer, the class of Thirty-eight was marked as the one to cop the Poughkeepsie Regatta, and if pre-season appearance, hopes, and support mean anything, the crew representing that class will meet the fondest expectations.

Nat James, ail-American goalie, Archie Souchek, Whitey Mehlig, Captain Beagle Smith, Dick Bowers, and Steve Mann were back, and Coach Dinty Moore found a wealth of material on deck from which to select the remainder of the team. The eight-game schedule was a difficult one comprising the major teams of the East, but the squad turned to with a will and exhibited a sterling brand of play throughout the season. Navy started its season against a scrappy but ineffective Dartmouth team and defeated them 6-i. The game was loosely played with both teams making the usual early-season mistakes. Navy displayed tre- mendous power but was unable to capitalize on it because of the lack of polish and teamwork. A week of intensive training produced a much improved Navy team that had little trouble downing Harvard 18-1. Bowers and Rindskopf led the Blue and Gold onslaught with four goals apiece. With its attack still functioning perfectly, Navy all but swept a strong Yale team off the field the following week- end by a top-heavy score of 13-1 . Dick Bowers, playing a bang-up game from his close-attack position, led the scoring with three goals.

The de- feat by the Tigers was but the beginning of Navy ' s tumbles. Mount Washington ' s National Championship aggregation was next on the schedule and de- parted unscathed; in the best played game of the season, Navy finally yielded 3-2.. After a scoreless first quar- ter, Frank Case knifed through for Navy ' s first score ten seconds after the second period opened. Guild retaliated in kind for the Mount shortly thereafter. The score remained knotted until the middle of the third quarter when Rindskopf shot a quick pass to Kelly who pocketed the ball to put Navy in the lead again. Not to be outdone, Guild evened the thing up with another scoring shot at the opening of the final chucker, and his teammate, Turnbull, decided the game with Mount Wash- ington ' s third goal ten seconds before the game ended. The 8th of May, Syracuse proved that it was no match for our power and speed by losing 15-3 at Syracuse. The Navy men per- Then the Army 447 • •••••••• V tymh Pointers Chasing Butterflies formed in superb style and won the approbation of the large crowd that attended. Miller led the Navy scores with a total of four goals, closely followed by Bowers and Rindskopf with three apiece. This return to normalcy was short-lived, however, for undefeated Maryland kept its record clean after a nip-and-tuck encounter with Navy in Annapolis. Nat James, Navy, and Jack Kelly, Maryland, as opposing goalies, were the stars of the game, time and again thwarting perfect scoring at- tempts. At the end of the game, the Terps led by a score of 1-1. The season was brought to a close with the annual game with Army, which was played before a June Week crowd of 10,000. Navy jumped into a two-goal lead at the very start when Dick Bowers and Beagle Smith hit the cords within thirty seconds of each other. Truxton, a former Midshipman, bit the hand that used to feed him bv flipping one past Goalie Nat James five minutes later. The second period produced four more scores, equally divided between the teams, with Bowers and Rindskopf doing the honors for Navy. The half ended with Navy out in front by 4-3 . The third period was a battle of defenses in which one lone score was collected for Army by Scott. With five minutes to play, Bowers broke through with a back-hand shot, his third goal of the day, and Navy led 5-4. Posey took charge of Army ' s attack ' and led an onslaught on the Navy goal, first to tie the score, and then just Kelly Bowers Miller DuBois SoUCHEK 448 On the Crease before the final whistle, to count the deciding tally. The season was productive of some re- markably fine play on the part of the Mid- shipmen, with Bowers, Captain-elect Case, Mann, Greene, and Rindskopf turning in stellar performances. Coach Moore, too, deserves a word of praise for an excellent job of molding an outstanding team, and in so doing, arousing among the midship- men and Navy fans, a genuine and popular interest in this scrappv Maryland game. This same combination of Coach and Thirtv-eighters, supported by a host of under-class stars, is, at the time of this printing, already well under way to up- holding Dinty ' s fine two-year record.

Fike ' s discus mark of 143 feet 11 ] 2 inches surpassed the former Navy record; Newton, in his first varsity meet, won the 2.2.0 lows to prove himself the find of the year. The Penn Relays proved disastrous. The mile relay team ' s sole feather was the defeat of Army ' s relay men, and Fike ' s javelin throw Dalton, Captain 450 Dalton Scores Again of 197 feet 4 3 4 inches, a tie for third, was Navy ' s only laurel. May 1st Penn State took the Navy men in a close 68-58 score, their unexpected strength in held events — particularly the fine work of Priolo — proving to be the decisive feature of the meet. Jack Dalton won both 100 and xxo dashes by a large margin. Harby and Steussi took seconds in the mile and two mile respectively. Penn took nine firsts, Navy five. The next contest with Notre Dame netted the Ramblers a 74-52. win; nevertheless, it was remarkable for the splendid improvement evidenced by the Navy team and for the tremendous number of records broken.

Bob Cutts in the 440 staged a driving spurt that brought him from last to second place after a slow start. Jack Dalton lost his first race of two years to Clifford in the 100, only to turn and win the izo from him by four yards, establishing a new meet record of 2.1.6 seconds; and Newton scored another victory in the low hurdles as did Baughman in the high jump. May zmd Navy crushed Maryland, scoring 99-2.7, taking every first, and making a clean sweep in six of the fourteen events. Guckeyson of Maryland bested Fike in the shot only to lose to him in the discus. Weymouth and Bolam tied in the two mile and were so far in the lead that they had to slow up in the last quarter. Navy ' s dominance in the track events was decisive and a striking contrast to the previous meet with Notre Dame. At last, May 19th, Navy won the most brilliant victory of many years over Army 68-58, curiously enough, the score being Lynch Morgan ' w» ----- L - The Texas Flyer 452 Heave, Tiny exactly that predicted by Coach Thomson. Harby won a fine race in the mile in his best time of the year. Jack Dalton won both the 440 and 110. Scofield and Woodruff came through with first and third in the 880. Newton and Howell scored in a thrilling race in the 2.2.0 lows. With the score at 54-54, Navy men were faced with certain defeat unless they scored first and second in the discus and at least second and third in the broad jump. Whereupon, Lynch heaved out a throw of 145 feet 9 inches, and Fike copped the second with a try two feet short of this — new tally, Navy 62. — four points desperately needed for victory! At this junc- ture Army ' s Captain Klocko leaped the best jump of his life, ii feet 6 inches. Ade Rich followed with a mark 4 inches short; then Neal, hero of the crucial moment, having made the first jump in his life over 11 feet only the week before, uncorked a prodigious effort and outdistanced even Klocko at 11 feet 8 inches. Thus N stars rewarded 19 track men for a splendid climax to the season ! Coach Thomson and his men have tackled a staggering schedule for 1938. The team approaches each encounter with a determination which cannot go unrewarded. With all of his stars of last year still wearing the blue, and each much im- proved and " rarin ' to go, " Tommy ' s chances for an undefeated season appear very bright at this printing. Captain Jack Dalton has promised us another year of wins, with Morgan and Chabot running right on his heels. Lynch and Fike are out for new records in the weights. McCrory, Newton, Cutts, and Bolam are ready for a fitting climax to bright track careers. Navy serves warning to her opponents.

The game was played with Haverford who presented a well balanced and aggressive team. The visitors sank shots in the first and fourth periods. Navy lacked the coordination and punch to put across a oal. Haines at goal started a brilliant season of saves that effectively cut into the number of our opponents tallies. A much-improved squad took the held for Navy the next week at (against) Yale. New Haven treated the squad to heavy rain during most of the game, but the team had just had three days of wet weather prac- tice, and was ready to go. They made a fast start, and Parker sank one in the first five minutes. There was no scoring for the rest of the half as the ball was becoming increasingly hard to handle. A good chance to score was missed early in the second when a free kick was awarded and the try failed. In the last quarter the ball got past the fulls, and Albert came in from the wing, colliding with the goalie as he kicked the ball, but the ball rolled in and the final score was two to nothing. The team had started to click on the offense, showing good teamwork between the halves and the forwards. The following Saturday Lafayette College was taken into camp in a scoring spree. The play was in their territory practically the whole game, and Navy scored in every period except the third. The Lafayette defense tightened in the last half, allowing only one goal. Kilpatrick 454 turned in a remarkable performance with three goals to his credit. The final score was six to nothing. The Gettysburg game was very closely contested. Navy played too conservative a game and the offense func- tioned badly. Defense was good, however, and the visitors didn ' t get a shot at the Navy goal in the first half. The feature of the game was the brilliant play of Captain Kelley, who seemed to be in every scrimmage and who sank a sensational shot from his halfback position. Navy won two to one. The squad looked forward with high hopes to their next game with the perennial champions — Penn State, but the visitors lived up to their reputation and took the game with a score of three to nothing, their first goal coming late in the second period as the strong starting defense of Navy weakened. The final game of the season was played on a cold afternoon in late November. The team met unexpectedly strong opposition in Lehigh. Navy was off form but managed to keep the play in the enemy ' s territory most of the time, and won by the scant margin of one point, two to one. Lehigh ' s goal came late in the last period when the two teams were playing quite evenly. Throughout the season Haines, Kelley, and McManus played superla- tive soccer, one keeping the ball out of our own goal, and the other keeping it in the opponents end of the field. But the ' 37 team, as have so many Navy soccer teams of the past, owed much to the coaching of Tommy Taylor. One of the outstanding authorities on the game as played in this country, Tommy combines a spirit of genial good fellow- ship with his technical advice to thoroughly inspire all his students of the game. Kilpatrick ' s steady playing was recognized by his team mates in their electing him captain for the ' 38 season, and should be instru- mental to Coach Tavlor in building a winning team. Leydon Whalen McDonald S v«S UN- BOXING A TEAM of exceptional all-around strength represented Navy in the ring for the ' 38 season. Strong in every weight, the Webbmen provided Navy rooters with much to cheer about. Unfortunately, the .500 average com- piled tells little of the courage and skill shown both in winning and losing. First and second classmen dominated all weights. Luby, Giffen, Daunis, and Dierman represented ' 38, wh ile Fairfax, Benham, Shepherd, Barbee, and Wal- lace, carried the colors for ' 39. Bergner and Wagenhals were the only youngsters to see action. In the opening meet of the season, a rugged Cornell team was turned back 6-2.. In the lighter weights, Daunis and Dierman won clean-cut decisions, but Barbee found his man to be too powerful. Captain Luby decisioned a tough opponent, and Fairfax and Benham took their bouts by technical knock-outs. Skipper Giffen defeated a puzzling fighter, but a bleeding nose forced Bergner to drop the heavyweight bout. Western Maryland found the Blue and Gold rolling into high. Dierman fought a fast draw with his opponent to give the Terrors their only score of the evening. Giffen, Fairfax, and Benham won by K. O. ' s, while Daunis, Luby, Shepherd, and Bergner took well-earned de- cisions to settle the final score at 7 1 2 to Yi. Undefeated Virginia extended its record at Navy ' s expense by a score of 4} 2 to 3 } 2. Close, hard-fought bouts marked the meet. Shepherd and Bergner won decisions, Benham added another K. O. to his record, and Luby earned a draw, for Navy ' s points. Fairfax and Wallace fought gamely against Harlow and Schmidt, but were outpointed in thrilling bouts by these National Intercollegiate Champions from Vir- Knockout ginia. Daunis and Dierman dropped fast matches which cast no reflections on their fighting abilities. Navy traveled to Syracuse to oppose an array of champions, and returned on the short end of a 5-3 score. The meet was almost a duplicate of the Virginia fracas, close judging being the order of the evening. Daunis and Barbee started well by taking decisions. Benham and Bergner were held to draws, giving Navy its 3 points. Dierman, Fairfax, and Wallace fought well against clever men, only to drop their bouts. Wagenhals, substituting for injured Captain Luby, unfortunately drew an intercollegiate champ in his first fight, and in spite of a stub- born defense was unable to hold him in check.

Benham also compiled a fine record which credited him with three wins by knockout and one draw. Throughout the season the team demonstrated those qualities of sportsmanship and skill which have marked Spike Webb ' s fighters in the past and have enabled his teams to build up one of the outstanding records in the history of collegiate boxing. Navy supporters knew that win, lose, or draw, the boys had fought and fought well.

Led hv Captain Heber " Butch " Player, the team defeated Harvard, Penn, and North Carolina, and lost to V. M. I., Penn State, Lehigh, and Indiana. V. M. I. was the first opponent and the visitors, led by Cadet Steidtmann, took Navy by a score of 2.0 1 •_ to 9 1 ■ ■ Captain Player led the Navy forces by throwing the V. M. I. heavy in 1:08. The following week Navy had her revenge at the expense of North Carolina, winning xi to 11. Player was again the star, throwing his man this time in 0:37. The tide again turned with the arrival of the strong Lehigh squad, the visitors coming out on top to the tune of 2.5} 2 to 4J 2. Navy point winners were Leigh, 135 pounds, who earned a decision, and Kleiss, 14 , who drew. The Hoosiers of Indiana invaded the Severn Country the next week and again Navy came out on the shorter end of a 11 to 6 deal. Al Minvielle at 165 and Dick Mason at 155 each won decisions for Navy ' s points. But the sun shone on 19 February and Navy downed the Crimson of Harvard to a 10 to 8 final. Charlie Chandler won Navy ' s only fall, while Leigh, Kleiss, Mason, Minvielle, and Player got decisions. The following Saturday, in Phila- delphia, Navy won from Penn by a lopsided score. Five bouts went Navy ' s way, and a sixth, in the ii6 pound class, was declared a draw. Leigh, Kleiss, Minvielle, and Jarvis got falls, while Spector took a decision . In their last meet, the Navy squad tackled the strong Nittany Lions of Penn State, and were vanquished by a score of 17 to 9. Captain Player fittingly won his last bout for Navy, and Chuck Leigh and Al Minvielle also came through to add points to the Navy side of the score board.

Navy beat Pennsylvania and lost to the other six members of the Eastern Intercollegiate League. From the viewpoint of a spirited team, the season was prosperous. In everv event the swimmers were better than in the previous season and several long standing records fell. The season opened with a 44 to 31 victory over Pennsylvania. Four Naval Academy records fell. Youngster Harvey Robinson demolished two records swimming the 150 yard backstroke in 1:46.4, and the 2.2.0 yard free stvle in Green, Kercheval, and Michel set a new Green, Capt. 460 mark of 3:06.8 in the 300 yard medley relay. Bill Holt shattered the fourth record with a 5 :14.x in the 440. The following week Columbia dunked Navy 45 to 30 in a lively match. Again the 440 yard record was smashed, this time by Charles Norris with a 5 :ix.5- The next three meets were with the " Big Three " —Princeton, Harvard, and Yale. The Tigers won 52. to 2.5. Harvard triumphed by a score of 55 to 10. Yale also won 51 to 2.4. The last meet of the year, with Dartmouth, ended — Dartmouth 47, Navy 2.8. In this meet, Captain Green came through in a magnificent contest to touch out Ed White of Dartmouth and in so doing set a new Naval Academy record of in the zoo yard breaststroke. Ed Gibson was the outstanding diver on the team and lost only to the intercollegiate champion, Cranston of Princeton. Don Snyder, diving his third year on the varsity, was number two. Leonard Stearns, Aigr BOYKIN Arthtr 461 GYMNASIUM TV TARKED by notable individual successes, especially in the rings -L ' -l- and the rope, the 1938 Gym season closed with four wins and two losses. In the first meet of the year, Navy overwhelmed Penn State by the decisive score of 45 l - 2 to 8 1 ■_ , with Navy taking firsts in every event except the parallel bars, and seconds in five events. In winning the rings, Worthington fell to the mat and fractured his shoulder. This accident cost the team a certain winner in this event, for in spite of prodigious efforts, he was unable to complete in subse- quent meets. Next the Tars met Temple at Philadelphia, onlv to be repulsed 38-16. Navy won its usual first two places on the rope, and a first on the rings was credited to Butler, who did an admirable job of rilling Worthington ' s shoes. On the following day the Navy team staged a comeback by crushing the M. I. T. 50 to 4, allowing the Engineers only one second and one third. Next, Navy defeated the invading Green of Dartmouth 43 to 11, again taking every first place. Then, with only a week left before the Intercollegiates, Navy overcame Princeton by the same score of 43 to 11 in a meet that was marked by Butler ' s and Walker ' s decisive defeat of the Tiger ' s previously undefeated Snyder on the rings, and by Captain DeCamp ' s establishment of a new Naval Academy record for the rope climb of exactly four seconds. As a climax to the season Navy was host to the Intercollegiates. In conjunction DeCamp, Caft. Wolfe, Manager DeCamp Ravmer 462 Top Row: Walker, Ellison, Graziano, West, Basset, Varnum, Lomax.

However, this disappointment was somewhat overcome by Navy ' s clean sweep of the rope climb and by the winning of intercollegiate championships by DeCamp on the rope and by Butler on the rings, runner-up places by Miller on the horse and Ellison on the rope, third places by Raymer on the horizontal bar, Rich- ardson in tumbling, and Sawyer on the rope, and a fourth by Sharer on the horse. Within the past few years, Gym has as- sumed the importance of a major Navy sport, particularly so in her Armv and Intercollegiate battles. We would not be far wrong in attribut- ing this phenomenal rise in its entirety to the work of Coach Mang, by whose patient work have been produced the teams so well worthy of the spotlight. if. 463 Bolam, Capt.

Navy won four and lost two races, an excellent showing in the stiff competition faced. The loss of the first meet only set the team to working harder but the next Friday ' s contest with Princeton saw Nassau ' s fleet Rosengarten pacing our Barney Oidfield across the line. The 2.6-2.9 score was close but still in favor of the invaders. The next Saturday eleven Navy men start- ed against Duke. Jack Harby led them all home ahead of the first " Blue Devil. " We had hit our stride! At Van Courtlandt Park, New York, Cecil Bolam, thinking only of his girl and the West Point jersey awaiting him at the finish, ran the best race of his career to cover the five cold, muddy miles in the excellent time of xi :oi.8, leaving 18 of the East ' s outstand- ing distance men his wake. Only Army ' s justly famed Schellman came in ahead of our next five. Weymouth and " Red " Mason, running their last race, were among the scorers in this sweeping victory. N. Y. U. and Columbia trailed Army in that order. 464 GOLF 1937 AGAINST some of the most formidable L golfing contingents in the East, Navy ' s young team swung through to three vic- tories and four defeats. The opening match played with a picked team of officers resulted in a 17-10 victory for the midshipmen. The following week, Princeton ' s veteran team proved too strong and won 7-2.. Navy ' s captain, Billy Brown, carded a 78 to defeat Princeton ' s number one man, but a well-balanced Tiger squad pro- vided the winning margin. Two meets, one at home and one away, were played with the undefeated Southern Champions, the University of Virginia. The Cavaliers took both contests easily. But the midshipmen began to hit their stride when they encoun- tered Georgetown, runner-up in the Eastern Conference race. This match was decided on the eighteenth hole of the last foursome, and resulted in a 5-4 defeat for Navy. But the boys came back to finish the season with two decisive 7-2. victories over Washington and Jefferson and the University of Delaware. The team ' s average for the two matches was 79, an average which would have taken the Princeton, Virginia, and George- town matches. In the Washington and Jefferson match, States Mead and Larry Geis turned in 77 ' s while Jack Pye carded a 78.

In the iirst meet of the season with St. Johns ' of Brooklyn, the sabre team won 7-2. while the epee men were winning 6-3. But the foils team didn ' t get well under way until the second meet, against Hamilton, in which contest foil, with an 8 to 1 win, started Navy to an 2.3 1 2 to 3 J 2 victory. In the third meet, while Yale was being downed 16-11, occurred the most exciting bout of the season between Shirley of Navy, and Grasson of Yale. Shirley proved his mettle against this Bliss, Mgr. 1 OLl v Dki.adrier Coach Sh aw Captain 466 intercollegiate champion and won 5-4. Cornell was taken the following week 17-10. In the fifth meet, with Columbia, foil and epee built up a 14 to 4 lead, and sabre boosted it by two points. Following the Columbia meet, Navy journeyed to Princeton to win the Pentagonal three weapon championship, and the foil champion- ship. In the course of this meet, Navy beat Army 16 to 11 with the Cadets dropping foil 4-5, Epee 3-6, and Sabre 4-5, to provide Navy fans with the first defeat of an Army Athletic team of the current year. De- Poix won three foil bouts, Pat Foley had three wins and Surface two in Epee, while Rawie starred in Sabre with three victories for Navy. The Pennsylvania meet gave next year ' s hopefuls a chance to show their stuff and Navy won 2.3 to 4. Rollins College, from Florida, stopped over in the middle of the next week to lose 18 to 9. The last official meet, with the New York Fencers Club, gave Navy a 17 to 10 victory. Hedgecock 467 Weiler, Capt. Klee, Mgr.

Since outdoor rifle is no longer an Intercollegiate sport the Naval Academy is forced to turn to National Guard and Service teams for competition. And in these teams we find shooting well worthy of the name. Much work is required to build a team capable of representing Naval Academy riflemen at their best. Many hours are spent in " holding ' em " and " squeezing ' em " at the 600 yard range, in repeated runs of rapid fire at shorter ranges, and in patient efforts with the difficult off-hand position. The 1937 season was the most successful in several yeais as the team took four out of five of the matches. Essex Troop of New Jersey was the first victim. Navy lost the next match to the 7th Regiment, New York National Guard, but came back strong to down both the Philadelphia Marines and Quantico Marines. The following week found Navy defeating 71st Regiment, New York- National Guard, by the excellent score of 1341-12.54 fired over a tricky range at Peeks- kill, New York.There winds fishtail back and forth with a suddenness which taxes the tal- ents of coaches and shooters to the utmost. The Fining Line 468 INDOOR RIFLE THE 1938 season proved a banner one for the small bore rifle squad. Thirteen opponents came and went and the Navy- record remained untarnished. A record aver- age of 1407 was hung up for the season, the gallery shoulder to shoulder record was toppled with a 1 41 6 fired against Maryland, and the top score of the season — a 14x2. which tied the old record for the telegraphic tvpe of rifle match — was fired against the Cadets of VPI. Much credit for this splendid record goes to the coaches, Lt. Anderson, Lt. Thayer, and Lt. Hood, a trio of Navy rifle shooters of previous years. But individual honors go to Kitch, and Weiler, both of the graduating class. Kitch, the captain of the team, and for three years ' all-American, carried a 2.84 average for the entire season. An able second was Weiler with a z8o, and behind these two was the finest aggregation of telling Squeezers seen he re or elsewhere for many a year. At this printing, the Intercollegiates, which have been won by Navy five out of the past nine times, are yet unfired, but with such excellent prospects, the chief problem rests in naming which of the many to occupy shooting positions.

The fine team of the previous year had been composed almost entirely of first classmen, and as a result Coach Gaudet was confronted with the tremendous task of molding a winning combination from a small and inexperienced group. Captain Art Grantham in the number one position was Navy ' s out- standing player and turned in a remarkably fine record against the best competition that the East had to offer. Shields Goodman in the number two slot was an even more consistent winner and combined with Gran- tham to form a powerful doubles team. Bass, Moore, Glennon, Bill, Ready, Harrington, and Haines comprised the remainder of the team and performed commendably throughout the campaign. The first contest of the season was played against a strong Yale team that won out 7-2.. Hope ran high after Georgetown University was de- feated 6-3 on the following Saturday, but dropped to a low ebb as we bowed to Harvard, Columbia, Virginia, and Pennsylvania in rapid suc- cession. Finally, this string of defeats was broken by a 9-0 victory over Saint John ' s of Brooklyn. The University of North Carolina then brought its traditionally strong team up to Annapolis and the Southerners left with Navy added to their string of victims. We revived long enough to take Lafayette College 7-1, but succumbed to Cornell in a brilliant meet which might well have been Navy ' s but for the " breaks " in the deciding doubles match. The season ended with a trip to and a defeat at the hands of Princeton, leaving a promising squad practically intact for the 1938 campaign. 470 BATTALION SPORTS Regimental Champion . .

In later days " Yankee efficiency " has conceived Navy Regulations, steel ships, and men who toil with " gadgets, " thus dissi- pating the romance of Viking men and their wild legends. But men still stand out to the sea in ships — grey ships — . Of them the Lucky Bag tells its tale. To set the story down within these pages is a baffling task. The " gubment " did not intend that its progeny re- linquish the interminable assault on Nav and Steam to indite journals of themselves, and nursing this $2.5,000, 500 page fairy tale from the confusion of its conception to its publication is a " bearcat " of a job. With foresight, the class sent " Kingfish " to the editor ' s chair. He survived! Apparently, he never " put out " ; but an organization, remarkable for its disjointed lack of co- ordination, promptly wove itself about him. Nobody knew much what to do, but he always did it. Sometimes he worked like hell without knowing it. Nevertheless, the galley was usuallv on time; the book went to press as scheduled; and strange enough, here it is. M. Kelly, Jr. Managing Editor D.

Hering and Dimmick stooged faithfully. The rest of us stooged too, but not faithfully. Commander De Lany bridged the pitfalls with advice and criticism. Probably the afternoons most encouraging to Editor Al were those in which Bancroft Hall was cleared and a goodly number of the radiator squad staff members turned up at the office suddenly seized with zeal. On such afternoons the scramble for the steel make-up ruler was a thing to see. But here ' s the pith of the enigma (Kingfish won ' t see it before it leaves the presses!): With a Louisiana patois that murders the King ' s English, clever, versatile, exacting A.J. demanded excellence, saying, " Dat stuff ain ' t what we want — dev can take it back. " That this Lucky Bag has been accurately composed, that its tale has been enhanced by a professional touch, that it embodies the spirit of a class that does good work because there ' s work to be done, and " dat ain ' t greasin ' nobody, " may be ascribed to the char- acter, wit, and skill of its editor.

De Lany, Officer Representative Dwyer, Hayden, Keeler, Fuller, Lovelace, Dufilho PHOTOGRAPHIC ASSISTANTS 479 THE LUCKY BAG ONCE upon a time there was a business manager who paid all bills and never discouraged the display of lit- erary brilliance. " It ' s a fairy tale, " said the editor-in-chief. " You ' ll pay for that, " replied the miser-in-chief! Enthroned in his dingy stronghold, the guardian of the purse strings dictated with relentless severity the careful expenditure of his even more carefully accumulated hoard. When costs dangerously approached receipts, Mac ' s pru- dence forbade spending, while his capable administration immediately set about extracting more advertising to defray the impending expenses. Classic is the tale of his fury upon receiving the bogus bill forged by the " Kingrish: " " What ' s the engraving running? " " Have you got that estimate from Phototype? " comprised the tenets of a harassed business staff ' s existence. As remarkable as the strict thrift enforced, was the un- failing appearance of black figures on a ledger threatened by the vagaries of a whimsical editor and the begrudging patronage of a recession-cowed business world. When a barrage of queries brought only curt but courteous refusals, still the advertising staff sold more advertising; and, when H. L. RlTTER Photographic Manager R. N.

When the demoniacal eye specialists deprived the staff of its under-paid, over-worked, tireless advertising chief, Mac recruited an equally adept Texan hull shooter. Tempered by adversity, the sages of our " monies " met every reversal with a competent foil. One thorn remains but ere long will be forgiven. The business stall ' s sporadic forays on the editor ' s office were as notorious for their frequent repetition as for their un- canny success in denuding it of every pen, pencil, glue bottle, clip, and piece of paper in or out of sight. Through it all a certain cordiality prevailed. One night a member of the editorial staff, not finding the key over the Editorial Office door, ventured into the sanctum of saving. He was treated to a skag and warmly received. Hear! Hear! The endless hours dissipated behind pounding type- writers, the thoroughly laid business campaigns boldly executed, the indomitable refusal to worry in black mo- ments, the characteristic thrift, and the scrupulous adminis- tration of a $2.6,000 venture in odd hours are not idle eulogy.

THE LOG HEARKEN ro the record of achievements and disap- pointments experienced by the " dedicated-to-pro- gress " staff of 1938. Considering first the feature department, led by George Long, we find a regularly operated schedule of informative and humorous features together with illustrations. The " no soap " article was abolished. Under James Ginn, news took a new lease on life. News of Academy activities was expanded. A column of con- temporary college life emerged called " Collegiate Clip- pings. " Midshipmen were given a peek at fleet life through " Letters From the Fleet. " Every week a leading news article on a timely Naval subject appeared. Affairs picked up in the Sports department as Bruce Hayden took over. Impartiality in game reviews, " Chips Off the Log " — the sports column, and much pre-game in- formation were highlights of this phase of the Log. Cartooning and illustrating throughout the magazine improved perceptibly during the year. Of particular merit was the vear ' s series of excellent covers. K. S. Brown Managing Editor D. D. Snyder Exchange Editor Standing: Stott, Schwab, Seigmund, Baker. Seated: Hayden, Long, Arthur, Brown, Wolfe EDITORIAL BOARD F 482 THE LOG Log circulation gained by about four hundred subscrip- tions among graduate officers by virtue of efforts extended by Victor Graff and his assistant circulation manager, John Bo well. Volume of advertising increased mainly because of the dynamic characteristics of James Lawrence, assistant advertising manager. Make-up of the Log became more careful. Typographical style was experimented with and improved upon. Office rou- tine in the new third battalion office gained stability under the administration of Kenneth Brown. In retrospect, three incidents stand out to distinguish the Log of 1938. First was the great beauty contest to pick the all Navy O. A. O. Second was the Log Confidential Cake Baking Contest " for femmes only, " which contest sur- prised all hands by its great success and unexpected news- paper publicity. Last to be remembered is Log ' s burlesque of Life, the issue which took four months of steady prep- aration and nearly broke the budget when it finally arrived. Editor Arthur, expressing satisfaction with the year ' s work, gets many nods of agreement. C. J. Fleps Advertising Manager V. B. Graff Circulation Manager Lt. Comdr. R. U.

Fleps, Business Manager THE purpose of the Trident Society since it was organized in 1914 has been to promote and foster literarv activity in the Regiment, to add to a too-small contemporary American naval literature, to discover, preserve, and disseminate naval literature already in existence. In attempting to fulfill this purpose, the Trident Society published the Trident Magazine, The Navy Book of Songs, and Anchors Aweigb, a collection of Naval Academy and Navy verse. Last year the Society revived the custom of issuing the Navy Calendar and the practice has been continued this year. In the Calendar for 1938, an attempt has been made to increase the space available for notes and memoranda, omit all but the most interesting historic events, and, with an eye to the convenience and welfare of the plebes, more detailed information concerning athletic schedules has been provided. It is hoped that the 1938 Navy Calendar will be received with favor equal to that of the 1937 Calendar. This year the Trident Society has tried to revise the " Esquire " characteristics of the Trident Maga- zine. Fewer full-page color plates have been included, a more readable type has beed employed, and the staff has attempted to give the magazine a more inviting appearance. The inexperienced staff of the Trident Society has been fortunate this year in having Lieutenant Young as its Officer Representative. He has aided materially with his valuable advice and suggestions. •31 1 ft t : r ' f : t tit ft Standing: Brewington, Duling, Berg, RuJden, Bishop, Duncan, Huizenga, Quillin, Smeja, Cattermole, Blonts, Hein, Kirk.

Dwyer, Editor REEF Points is the annual handbook of the Naval Academy and ' is written especially for the m- _ coming freshman class, the Plebes. As Reef Points gives the new plebe his first written impression of Naval Academy life and traditions and the Navy in general, it is an important element in his early training. The principal aim of the staff is to present a book which will be of maximum value to the plebes. There is, however, a large circulation of Reef Points among upper classes at the Naval Academy and among their friends. The secondary aim of the staff is to present a book that will be of interest to these readers. This year these two aims were achieved by adding new photographs and information of the naval profession to the handbook inherited from the year before. The major change was in enlarg- ing and modernizing the Navy section, which was fresh enough to be interesting as well as informative. The most drastic change was the replacement of the legendary black bible fly-leaf with an attractive light blue coated paper. This same paper was later adopted for inserts between the various sections of the book to give a more distinct break between the sections. The boat theme used as illustrations on these pages represented in chronological order the various small boats with which a midshipman comes in contact during his years at the Naval Academy. To Carl Dwyer and a staff of capable assistants, the upper classes join the plebes in extending a hearty " Well done. " PPP | fi 1 4 ' k 1 4 7 k - ' n?s gr .

Yet, there is a bit of untruth- fulness in this title, for the organization has long exceeded the modest limit of ten. Scarcely a hop presided over by the Ten will find their number less than eighteen or twenty. The band represents the pick of the Regiment in musical talent, and competition for key positions is keen. Rhythm is paramount in all interpretations, whether sweet or hot, and woe betide the unlucky fellow who " cuts a corny lick, " for " corn " is a derided bugaboo to all the gang. Good times are had by all at the well known J. A. Marks, Leader " Friday-night Smokers " in which the Ten gives the Regiment its weekly " swing. " Often the very next evening will find the Ten over in Dahlgren Hall providing the romantic background of harmony for the regimental hop. Frequent- ly, during the intermissions, the well known swing quintet will be seen grouped closely around the " mike " knocking out some old dependables, such as " Sweet Sue.

Perhaps they became prejudiced against the organization, but if they attended the Musical Clubs ' Show, and the orchestra concert, their prejudice must have become an approving one. The purpose of the orchestra is primarily to bring pleasure to its members. The rehearsals are frequent and require much time and effort, but the fun de- rived by the members is certainly ample return. The rare public appearances mould the work toward a definite objective, and give the public an oppor- tunity to appreciate the work done. Pinafore and the June Week concert caused many weary hours of J. C. Isham, Leader rehearsal, but the intimate contact with good music was a satisfaction to all the members. Not all mem- bers are concert stage artists, nor do they enjoy the services of a Toscanini, but the musical output is surprisingly musical. It has earned favorable criticism. The members have gained pleasure, and perhaps have passed some pleasure on to their audience. That is success ! 487 Standing: Chilton, Wilson, McCormirk, Savidge, Anderson, Foote, Jones.

GLEE CLUB MOST of the strange sounds that emanate from the basement of the First Battalion start with the Glee Club. Twice a week a group of the boys meet to mix the strains of The Blue Danube with those of more modern tunes. Most choruses are organized for those with good voices and a desire to keep in training, but our policy is to afford those who like to sing an opportunity to satisfy their yearning. We live in hopes that the " have-nots " will be drowned out by the " haves " when public appearances are made. So generous a policy produced a bang-up gang of sailors and lasses for Pinafore. Bouquets to Jack Bogley and Professor Crosley. Activities were not limited to one production. Those who were privileged to attend the After Dinner Speaking in honor of Admiral Sellers will, no doubt, never forget the bar- room quartet that brought down the leaves from the bulkheads of the dining room. " For it ' s always fair weather when good fellows get together, " and under such a flag the Glee Club will alford the midshipman one of the informal activities of the Academy, into which he is welcomed without qualifications. If in search of a good time, this is the place to lind it. Bogley, Leader 488 J ' - - iL % % ' : V M Standing: Leasure, Wright, Newport, Dewey, Ruhe, Bennett, Huffman, Phillips, Frankenburger.

Although the " singing strings " still form the basis of the organization, several new and different instruments made their appearance, adding a new attraction to the Club ' s performance. With the largest membership in eighteen years, the Mandolin Club has acquired versatility. Their music may vary from the most rhythmic hit of " Tin Pan Alley " to the most sublime melody of Strauss. On a practice evening one may hear the whisper- ing strains of the steel guitars intermingled with the soft, measured strummings of the ukeleles. It may be a rehearsal for a show, or it may be one of the Club ' s informal gatherings or " sessions. " Here is found the most timid beginner playing enthusiastically with a near-expert. The experienced mem- ber is as willing to help as the recruit is eager to learn. The pleas- ure derived from playing, the love of music, the instructive practice obtained, or the desire for relaxa- tion may influence a midshipman to join the Club. Once he is a mem- ber, he very rarely drops out, for there is a great satisfaction in being a part of one of the most congenial organizations in the W. A. Payne, Leader Regiment. T M£.w+ CHOIR SOME eighty yodelers comprise the choir. They are the picked voices of all the classes in the Regiment, chosen from the plebe choir which Professor Crosley organizes every summer. Each Sunday morning they furnish the music for the chapel service. Despite complaints about the sleepy Sunday morning countenances of some of its members, the choir is generally held in good repute. Occasionally they render an anthem really well — especially when some de- termined group has made a suicide pact to attack in tempo. Rehearsals are held in place of a Thursday or Saturday drill and for half an hour before the service each Sunday. All hands can be sure that they will be kindly and generously Prof. Croslby, Choirmaster IEHHK M M 9 H it • « Back Row: Schwab, Woltes, Noll, Ballou, Banvard, Reindollar, Howard, Burke, Hooper, Lee, Wood, Condit, Hunt, Cassel, Smith, Chisholm, Penrod.

Caroling at Christmas — or for Navy Blue and Gold — and sing- ing in the National Cathedral at Washington are points of unusual interest in the choir year. 490 BOAT CLUB IT is the firm belief of the members of the Boat Club that their organization is THE BEST. The club provides a means of actively expressing profes sional desires and in- terests, including cruising, racing, and boat-building. Many a pleasant week-end has been spent sailing up and down the Bay, exploring small ports and harbors, and trying a little practical navigation, which has sometimes landed the conscious ones on a sandbar. For those more inclined to- ward racing, the club has a number of star and other small boats. Racing has gained rapidly in importance with the advent of the Boat Club, and competition with col- leges and universities has been undertaken. H. M.

The Vamarie, famous ocean racer given to the Academy two years ago, provides another source of interest to club members, espec- ially to those who would like to enter an off-shore race. Even in the Bay under a fresh breeze she pro- vides a thrill never experienced ashore. With these boats and the facilities for building boats at its disposal the Boat Club has made great strides. 491 if Standing: Girdler, Quinn, Trumbull.

Pinafore, the rollicking, nautical Gilbert and Sullivan light opera, interspersed with the music of an exceptionally fine Mandolin Club and a skillful NA-Ten, comprised the production of the Combined Musical Clubs for 1938. Pinafore was chosen after an original operetta from midshipman pens failed to meet approval. The midshipman brain-child was the tale of a co- educational Naval Academy. Perhaps reasons for disapproval are evident. Bogley ' s Glee Club started intensive work under Pro- fessor Croslev ' s energetic and skilled tutelage as earlv as February. Members were ably moulded into sturdy sailors and lovely lasses. Isham ' s orchestra was well trained with assistance from Lieu- tenant Sima, so that oddities of soloists could actually be followed. E. W. Wood, Director wt 494 H. M. S. PINAFORE A. B ogley, Chorus Directo Lt. C. G. Christie Officer Representative Stirring strains of chorus and orchestra provided colorful back- ground for the thrilling parade of much-loved Gilbert and Sulli- van characters. Audiences were allowed a glimpse of the same proud spirit written into the Victorian hero, Ralph, by the acting of John Stevens. Lovely, true-hearted Josephine was as beloved as ever when depicted by John Reigart. Eric Allen ' s interpretation of virile Captain Corcoran caused many feminine hearts to flutter. Coy little Buttercup lived again in the person of William Graw- burg. Kenneth Brown was proper, grim, and proud as Sir Joseph while Russell Duncan displayed an absolutely hateful Dick Dead- eye. Lieutenant Christie and Professor Crosley, the forces behind it all, rate roses. 495 THE MASQUERADERS C. V. Gordon, President THIS year ' s show, a sparkling mystery-comedy, demonstrated to the world that gunland ' s loss was Navy ' s gain. The cast of twelve contained nine of the toughest mugs that " ever pulled a rod on the Governor at Albany. " The hero, of course, had to be a fine, clean-cut fellow — the heroine a lovely little thing, all covered with sweetness and light. But the tough guys was really tough — as sinister a group of thugs as ever gathered together to talk over ways and means of doing away with gendarmes. The most amazing thing about the show was the versatility displayed by the lads in their thuggery. There were as many different types of criminals as there were actors — and there was Prof. R. S. Pease, Coach .v5F 496 WHISTLING IN THE DARK R. K. Irvine, Director Lt. C. G. Christie Officer Represeiitdrirc an actor in every part. Make no mistake about that — this show contained the best dramatic talent that had ever been unearthed during our four years at the Academy. The play couldn ' t have been cast any better if it had been produced at Sing S ing. The combination of an excellent play, a talented cast, the finest costuming, make-up, and scenery that money could buy, and the skilled direction of Professor Royal S. Pease, guaranteed a suc- cessful show from the very beginning. Under his guidance, these elements are blended into a well-rounded production which provided some of the best entertainment every enjoyed by the Regiment. Best line, " Bulls is like dat — da stinkers!

Charged with putting over Naval Academy hops is one thing, but making them human is something else. This year the Hop Committee has had this as its aim. In doing this, brains have been taxed, grease marks have hit new lows, and class funds have been wiped out by the Hop Committee, but some success has been attained. Building and Grounds has groaned and the Executive Department raised its eyebrows more than once at the Committee ' s requests. The " Blue and White " Christmas Hop, featuring E. F.

The Hop Committee has its re- ward in free chows and an appreci- ative Sunday morning " Nice hop last night. " 498 Ring Dance Committee THE fellows who made possible the biggest of big nights in the history of ' 38 are the members of the Ring Dance Committee. They spent their time and energy unstintingly and enjoyably. Actual entertainment was provided Dalton and Taft in their trip to New York to transact important business. They dashed across New York six times before establishing successful contact with Guy Lombaro — so suc- cessful, when established, that his price was a mere one thousand dollars instead of the original two thousand. They then shocked florists along Fifth Avenue by demanding bids on 460 orchids. These business men gave money ' s worth to within $1.90 of their fund which exceeded three thousand G. F. Dalton, Chairman Olah, Baldridge, Taft, Dalton, DeCarap, Howell, Reinhart dollars. The whole com mittee en- joyed the baffled expressions on the faces of officers when it was proposed that the C in C ' s wife receive. That Mrs. Roosevelt did receive, was the crowning tri- umph. The traffic problem through the Ring, which by mathematics gave each couple only a Z4 second kiss, was somehow solved. It was a charming setting for a glorious time. 499 m. Ring Committee IN the fall of 1936, the minds of the class of 1938 turned as one to their rings. Committee members were elected at company meetings, notable in that an average of ten men at each were heard to remark, " Everybody vote for Gish. I gotta hear Hal Kemp. " The newly-elected committee members soon assembled to set about their task. The class policy was evolved and a class meeting was called to approve it. Out of 450 stalwarts, almost 175 attended, con- sisting principally of the lame, the halt, and the blind, particularly the blind. Designs were considered and voted upon by the class; and, as is always the case, one who had cast his ballot for the winning design was not to be found. R. H.

Finallv, in May, the long awaited ring arrived — a product satisfactory to all. 500 Reception Committee THE opportunities to meet men of our age in civilian li fe are limited. The Reception Committee offers to its members the chance to maintain this contact. Throughout the year the midshipmen who are " excused from drills and formations " over the week-end are in complete charge of the visiting athletic teams. The objectives of the Reception Committee are " the reception, care, and entertainment " of our visitors. In return, many advantages of meeting students from colleges in the North, South, East, and Mid-West are the rewards of the committee. The officers of this organiza- tion are the first class chairmen from each battalion.

Abercrombie Officer Representative O. A. Wesche, Vice-President DECEMBER the hrsr, 1937, marked the adoption of a new organization into our extra-curricular activities. An enthusiastic group of forty midshipmen, led by Phil Beshany, put the Foreign Language Club underway so that today this organization shares the spotlight with the leading clubs. Finished linguists are not the only ones eligible, for it is an all-hands rate. The aim of the club is to stimulate interest in the foreign languages and thus tend towards greater fluency among the midship- men. On the practice cruise and out in the service there will be innumerable occasions when proficiency in a particular language will be a great help. The Club has a fine reading room well supplied with current periodicals and books. This feature offers a special opportunity to upper-classmen who plan to take the interpreter ' s examination. The club meetings which are held weekly are conducted entirely in one of the foreign languages. Informal meetings during the week supplement these meetings and thereby provide more practice in conversing. But the best conversational practice is provided by the language tables organized in the various battalions. It ' s a case of practice while you eat ! Stirring foreign tunes are sung as dinner music. The future of the Club promises to develop some interesting projects such as the production of foreign plays; programs including outside speakers; and foreign short movies.

M. Wolfe, Secretary-Treasurer W. C. Leedy, Vice-President J. E. Dacey, President " Mend your speech a little, ' Lest it mar your fortunes. " — Shakespeare SPEAKING plays an important part in the leadership of men. To tell a man what to do, one must 1 know not only what to tell him, but also how to tell him. Indoctrination, training, and discipline are all dependent upon effective speech. And naval officers are called upon every day to speak in one guise or another. The purpose of the Quarterdeck Society is to help the midshipman to improve himself in this phase of his future duty. In pursuing this function, the Quarterdeck Society has conducted this year an inter-battalion debating contest, with a silver trophy presented to the winning battalion. Another big event is the annual public speaking contest, open to all midshipmen. During the year many informal discussions were enjoyed bv the members; and anyone can become a member by attending the weekly meetings in Memorial Hall. For their advice and assistance, thanks are due Commander V. S. DeLany, Lieutenant W. J. Gal- braith, officer representative, and Associate Professor W. A. Darden, representative of the Department of English, History, and Government. - « •; f| :; i : i : " tf t ■• -«• Back Ron: Marks, Yarnev, Murray, Baker. Lhase, Libbey, Cuccias, Kirk, Rich, Foster.

Designed especially to their needs is the Bausch 8C Lomb 7 power, 50 mm model shown above. Its tremendous light gathering power is unequalled in any other glass made. Also of interest to officers are the remarkable 7 power, 35 mm and 6 power, 30 mm glasses. All are famous for their width of field, brilliance of image, dust-tight and water- proof construction, and their rugged sturdiness.
