' Herb " HERBERT EDISON BENHAM FLAT RIVER, MISSOURI " Van " " KilUr HE may ha -c been born far inland, but this tall, gooJ-looking Missourian is going tar in our Navy. Quiet, unobtrusi ' C, with good tastes and excellent man- ners. Herb Benham makes a fine prospective officer. He is a varsity boxer, and no mean physical specimen. But let it not be said that he is all brawn and no brain, for he reads avidly such authors as Dostoyevsky and Spinoza, writes poetry in off moments, and spends much ot his extra-curricular time helping to guide the destiny ot the Log from his position on the staff. He enjoys intellectual conversation and may be more easily mterested in a philosophical argument than a chat about the latest news in the social world. This well-balanced combination of mental, physical, and social prowess speaks highly for Van ' s future career in the Navy. JOHN HOWARD MILLINGTON BURLINGTON, VERMONT " Jack: ' " Bottle " " Yum-Yuvi FROM a sleepy town in New England comes Jack to enrich the memories that our class will have when gazing in retrospect upon life at the Academy. To us he has been an easy-going, con- genial classmate, admirably suited for life at the Academy. He has kept himself well occupied in sports, swinging a mean racquet, oar, sabre, and line, and at other e.xtra-curricular activities. Besides being in the Hellcats, " Bottle " has lead a blameless lite. His only fault lies in his constant prattle about Vermont mountain skiing and swimming. We hope that the Fleet will welcome a most suitable young officer, so we take leave of our friend and companion of our Academy days, wishing him all success in our chosen pro- fession.

» CHESTER FRANK PINKERTON OSHKOSH, WISCONSIN " Pinfo- " ALWAYS ready to argue on anything if he can do the talking, Snuffy left the University of Wisconsin to give the Navy a break. While continually worried over weekly trees, he never has had difficulty in straightening out whatever the departments gave him. He disclaims all pretense of recognizing the fairer sex, but when occasion arises, no drag seems ever to have found him wanting. A natural yen for pinochle and cribbage coupled to a flair for good drawing makes him a good enter- tainer. With a pleasing personality that makes friends easily, he is a swell classniate. Snuffy ' s ability and character will earn him a good reception and certain promotion in this Navy of ours. To this end we wish him all the luck in the world.

Bobby was never worried about academics — usually spends his study hours writing the gentler sex. His morning mail is generally plentiful with nice pink envelopes addressed in white ink. Slug takes his ath- letics with a sigh, prelcrring the radio club work, but every week one can find him in the gym playing a mean game ot handball. As a roommate Slug is one of the best. His wry sense of humor, combined with his good nature, make him a fine friend. As for the future, he aims for Pensacola, his wings, and a wile; we predict that he will get all three. 290

HAROLD NORMAN EGGER ROUND ROCK, TEXAS ' Eggie " ' Ham " HAILING from the Lone Star State, Eggie, as he is known to his classmates, always has been respected for his convivialitv and level- headedness. Entering the Academy after a year at Texas University, he quickly became adapted to his new environs and was regarded as one of " the boys. " His extra-curricular activities lav mostly in the fields of track, cross-country, talking " Dago, " and an occasional card game. Though coming from the sandy plains and mesquite bushes, Eggie has an ardent interest in the water and sailing. His culinary tastes lean toward tortillas but he still enjoys peanut butter crackers as well as his atter dinner cup of Java. Good natured, smiling, droUy humorous, Eggie is an all around good tellow. - ,• I 150 lb. Crew 4; Battalion Crciv 3, 2, i; Masqucraders 2, 1; 1 P.O.

Gene has been an ideal roommate. He has nosed out the academic departments so long that they ha ' e finally given up. A hard thinker, a practical savoir, a Masquerader of no mean ability, and a " Cosmo cowboy, " that ' s Duke. He seldom misses a hop, and has been a boon to the genus crab. When the Spring rolls around Gene can be seen working out in one of the many shells on the river. His secret ambition is to sail around the world in a small boat. May he have the very best of luck in the world. I292I
