Italy, it is true, had invaded Ethiopia, Germany had remilitarized the Rhineland, the Spanish Civil War had begun, and in the short space of a month Japan was to invade China. But the greatest empire of them all, the British Empire, given new unity by the newly-crowned King George VI, was still at peace with the world, and in Geneva the League of Nations was working to preserve that peace. _ At home in the United States we were still engrossed in our own peaceful and isolated prob- lems of social security, Pan-Americanism, labor, education, and safe driving. During the next year we paid little heed to the rumblings of Europe ' s fast-growing war machines. We had our own peculiar national sorrows . . . the last flight of Amelia Earhart . . . and we had our own peculiar na- tional entertainments . . . the World ' s Fair. . . . All the while rumblings from Europe were growing stronger and stronger- like mutterings of an approaching thunderstorm. With Munich came a slight lull, but by the time British conscription began in April of 1939 the ominous rumble of the Nazi war machine was a veritable thunder over Europe. . . . Weleit IN TIMES OF WAR O, N September 1, 1939, the war clouds over Europe unleashed themselves in a " blitzkrieg " that struck with blinding fury at Poland. In a short time Great Britain and France declared war on Ger- many. That same month Russia invaded Finland. In the spring of 1940 Hitler struck again and again with almost incredible speed. Norway fell, then the Netherlands, and finally Belgium. In quick X succession came the collapse of the invincible French army, the flanking of ;. ««»- iByffr; ' the impregnable Maginot line, and the inevitable separate peace on the part of France. England alone remained. . . . With all the world shuddering at the horrible spectacle of modem mech- anized war, the reaction of the United States was almost instantaneous . . . millions raised by private contributions for aid to the National Defense, plans for a two-ocean Navy and a year. For the Class of 1941... no cruise to Europe America curtailed . . . graduation in February instead than twenty years ago, the class of 1917 was sum- to the defense of its country.

HIS EXCELLENCY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA 7 " O the President of the United States we looked for leadership as the conflagration of diplomatic intrigue, invasion, and war threatened to engulf all of Europe. As Com- mander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, President Roosevelt, more than any other one man, held the destiny of the nation in the hollow of his hand. Fortunately our President combined invaluable military knowledge gained as Assistant Secretary of the Navy with statesman-like qualities and long political experience. With quick sureness he organized national defense. Conscription became a reality. The two-ocean navy began to take shape. After the first alarm had subsided, the nation breathed easier, secure in the knowl- edge that a keen eye and a steady hand guided the helm of the ship of state. m PRESIIJEI T FRA HLI nELA II ItnUSEVELT Our C-in-C goes to sea COLONEL FMm j, KNOX Serretary of the Navy The Secretary IWeets the F avy BL ' ■■•- - ' ■ ■• ' ■ MAR ADMIMI W L.SON MOWN Superintendent U.

A great deal has been said of the lure of the sea; little has been said of the lure which attracts and holds the fancies of hun- dreds of oung men from every station of life and every stale in the union. Much has been said of tlu discipline and die training of the Naval Academ ' ; little has been said of how an in- stitution manages to combine hundreds of creeds, hundreds of ideals, Iiundreds of diverse philosophies of life into one single, useful wa ' of living— a service life ot honor, patriotism, virtue, loyaltx ' , and subordination. Mow was it accomplished? Tlie secret lies hidden in the ears.

Smiles were gayer, uniforms presented a more striking contrast of freshly-brushed blue and gleaming gold, and the sun glinted more brightly on polished shoes and cap visors. The inflexible routine of drill, exercise, and study was over for another week, and the air was charged with expectancy. The week was over, but the week-end was just beginning. Release from routine, however, was not all the week-end had to offer. It brought us sports, dancing, and sailing—not to mention feminine companionship! Undoubtedly most of that peculiar charm which haloes our memories of Academy week-ends is due to the girls we dragged. Meet- ing our drags . . . taking them to football games . . . dining out. . .dancing. . .sailing . . . and simply basking in the warm radiance of a pretty girl ' s smile . . . these were the ingre- dients that went into the m; king of that most noble of institutions— the week-end ! cW 00 - €fe ' - TZt ,t(r ' .c - 9 ' A " ' h - J J yi ' rir r , f -«f .

Somehow there came a time when we first felt the call of the sea, when we first dreamed of a lusty life of travel, romance, and adventure. But the most vital part of our saga is the four years spent at Annapolis learning the ways of the sea. Knowing that we were destined to come to the Naval Academy as the summer ot 1937 approached, we prepared ourselves for a transition from our various modes of living to whatever lay before us . IXmi- M OAUJ, wxAJJeA oiU 31 M eoame We arrived. We got a room in town. A flame burned, and the moths drew ever closer to its enchanting light. That flame was a career, a vision of the future embodied in grey walls and a golden spire, grey ships and golden sunsets. And we were the moths, gathering and hovering about the flame, striving to reach it yet not knowing what it held for us, knowing only the magnetic enchantment of its irresistible glow. Yes, all roads led to Annapolis, and in the early summer of 1937 we, travel- weary and apprehensive, began to congregate outside the walls of the promised land, forming our battle plans for the conquest of the future. We talked things over and tried to relax. 32 We Mie ied Willi llOi ' l ' . AND I ' KAR IN OlSR IlKARTS 1 ' WAIKII) llIRdUOH TIIF, MaIN (JaIK. A FRIENDLY I.ITTIE MAN DIRECTED US TO THE SlCK Y . . After a restless niglil of " impatience we arose to survey the walls we were about to storm ; we arose to old expectations and new fulfillments. As we started down Maryland Avenue toward the Main Gate, our hearts grew faint and our steps uncertain. During that last long mile a million thoughts flashed through our minds, thoughts of the future, for we were leaving the past behind. Our hearts must have missed a beat as we passed through those portals of promise and found ourselves surrounded by grey walls covered with green ivy, brick walks shaded by green trees, and marble monuments cloaked w ith tradition. We were sent to the Administration Building first to receive necessary instruc- tions, and we left there, slightly stunned, to cross the yard to Bancroft Hall. Our eyes missed little of the beauty about us as we half straggled, half marched, toward the impressive main entrance. Again our eyes were tilled with wonder at the sight of marble floors and luassixe columns as we entered the rotunda ; the friendly little man who greeted us was dwarfed by its hugeness. Our pulses started to ciuicken and we were filled with misgivings about our health as he directed us to the sick l)a . S3 «M«aKwM tide mMu. dea iee Our excitement and the long climb up to the sick bay made our hearts beat faster and our breath come quicker. Could something be wrong, something we had not thought about? We soon saw that the doctors would not forget anything, even if we had. With sweat dripping from our armpits and our blood pressure steadily rising, we went from room to room, from probing to probing. None of us was new to physical examinations, but this one meant more to us than anything else at the time — our whole future depended on it. And when we left Bancroft Hall, some of us walked with leaden hearts, knowing that dreams are unsubstantial things ; the rest of us felt a sense of relief, knowing that on the morrow would begin the life that we had sought. } li i ing been appointed a iniclshipman in the United States Xa , do soleninl - swear (or adirm) that I will support and defend the ConstitutionoF the United States .i 4ainst all enemies, lorei.gii and doinestie; diat I vill hear true faith and alle ianee to the same; that I take this obligation heel , widiout an - mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and laithiull_ ' diseharoc the duties ol die ofbee on whieh I am about to enter: So help me (jod.

After we exchanged our civilian garb for white work uniforms we went to work with a stencil brush and a bottle of ink, but the rude clang of a bell soon interrupted us and we followed the mob to formation on the rear terrace. Finally we waded through the stencilling and pack- ing and were ready for room inspection. Then we began our task of learning the ways of men and the sea. Our task brought to us a new language, the lan- guage of the sea and of Naval Academy life. We found the " Plebe ' s Bible, " Reef Points, a great help in getting started on the right foot.

Not only mad dogs and Englishmen, but midshipmen as well, go out in the noonday sun, and it beat us mercilessly about the head and shoulders. A cool shade and a tall drink would have been a blessing those hot days, but we had no time for wishful thinking ; we had work to do. We started right in to learn our job of being naval ofhcers. The Seamanship Department had the job of making sailors of us, and we looked forward to the drills in the cutters and knockabouts. On the rifle range the instructors tried to make rifle experts of us as we paused time and time again in our firing to wipe the sweat from our eyes. The Executixc Department tried to teach us that snap and precision which are essential to military efficiency. It takes a lot to make an officer and a gentleman — we found ! Pass in review! Ready on the firing line. We Grueling tests and brisk work-outs in THE GYM showed UP OUR WEAKNESSES AND LEFT US PHYSICALLY BETTER. Realizing that stamina and a sound body are essential for an exacting routine of work and watches, we accepted without undue complaint the course of physical training. Some of us found defects in our posture, and some of us had to learn to swim. Many of us had trouble with jumping or rope climbing, and the run- ning test was no lazy man ' s task. Sports furnished us much pleasure and benefit during Plebe summer. Some of us who went out for football would help beat Army some day. 1 Slade Cutter got our Plebe football team off to an early start. 38 l4Je mc MJ y (m 4 2Aie No MORE PlEBEs!

" iVeiVoAJeed We soon learned that the sea was something more than a mere enchantress ; she was an exacting mistress that demanded faukless proficiency in the use of the most common implements in the Navy, the scrubber and the squilgee. But a ship will not run on cleanliness alone ; so we went to the throbbing engine rooms and to the sweltering firerooms to learn of steam and machinery. It was not enough that we be engineers and deck hands ; we had to learn something of every part of the ship ' s organization. Those signal watches taught us a lot about communications, and we gained a clearer conception of how a man-of-war is operated as a self- sustaining fighting unit when we stood watches on the bridge. All of this was building a background that would provide for the eventualities of the future. We did this with muscle. . THIS WITH SWEAT. THIS WITH PROFESSIONAL PRIDE. AND THIS WITH FLAGS. 40 %le lea w£d ta Uvmt Load! The most vital part of our traiuini was in gunnrrv. After all, what good is a warship without guns, and what good arc guns if they cannot he fired accurately and rapidly? Long hours were spent at the sigiit tele- scopes and the loading machines in preparation for the few minutes it required to fire. We showed more en- thusiasm for this phase of our training than for any other, always keeping in mind that the shots that hit are the shots that count. When the week ' s work was over, we assembled in academy-laundered whites and sparkling shoes for cap- tain ' s inspection — after that came recreation. None in thi: wiiniv Third division, sir. 41 We ma xed We spent our recreation hours in various ways. The ship ' s band usually played for our pleasure after the evening meal, and we enjoyed the movies in the evenings (if we did not have the watch) . The Fourth of July was marked by smokers, contests, and merriment for all. We needed play to relieve the routine. Many of us took advantage of the sun in the afternoons, sprawling on the hard-wood deck while we replenished our supply of energy. We needed rest, rest from watches, working parties, drills, and those short nights of liberty. We listene d to swing. We frolicked. We basked in the sun. 42 %le UJent to- m me A TRIBUTE TO FraNCe ' s UNKNOWN. The places we saw and the experiences we had in Europe are indehbly stamped in our memories. We loved France, the people, the beautiful countryside, the fine old buildings, the gay night life, and the smiles that hid a fear of the inevitable invasion from the east. Denmark brought us many happy moments and ac- quaintances that we were reluctant to leave. We all heaved a sigh of regret as we saw the continent sink below the horizon, not knowing what another year was to bring. Frederiksberg Castle. Landmark. The Trianon. Copenhagen. ThRKI: MlSKETEERS. 43 pras London. Stonehenge. The England we saw was peaceful, good humored, and hospitable. Soap-box orators held forth in Hyde Park, and the bill boards were plastered with posters of an anti-vivi- section campaign. Yet even then one ear was to the ground to hear the rumble when it started on the continent. Although our visit to Europe had been ex- tremely satisfying, few of us regretted returning to New York ' s sky-scrapers, air-conditioning, and cold beer. And the hospitality and beauti- ful women of Norfolk upheld their reputation. ■ t::: , i ' ' - l 1SJ Beef Eaters. ; 7 Little Old New York. Virginia Beach. vUe oAeuji Uyfi . . .

Somewhere beyond the rim of youngster year, like an oasis in the desert, Hes the fabulous land of second class summer, the halfway mark of evcr - midshipman ' s career. Strange tales are told of its inhabitants, the second class, and their privileges and responsibilities . . . tales of week-ends spent in Washington, Baltimore, and New York ... of ketch trips and country club life ... of beautiful drags and Second Class Day. . . . Small wonder then that the third classman trudges on through the perils of youngster year, heartened by the thought of what is to come; yet there is something child-like about his simple faith in himself, his slipstick, and his god whom he calls Tecumsch. Armed with only these he sets out with the mechanical ingenuity of the steam department to the right of iiim, tlic systematic scheming of the skinny department to the left of liim, the accu- mulated wizardry of the math department before him, and the bodies of his fallen comrades all around him. We watch him disappear into the distance toward second class summer, that youngster who was ; then we turn away with ; mental " hon voyage. " 48 Our dreams of a summer of recreation faded somewhat as soon as we were settled in our new rooms and saw the plans for our work laid out. We began to think that the old adage about all work and no play had been given a new twist. Our first taste of authority came when we were entrusted with the guidance of the new plebes through their initial months at the Academy. A certain sense of progress came from being in charge of a formation after two years of waiting. Of course there are always watches to stand in the Navy, but they were incidental as long as our necks were not ex- posed to the axe. To work off the effects of those week-ends of frolic we were sent to the gym where we groaned and strained in order to avoid the stigma of the sub and weak squads during the academic year. They work out on Wednesday afternoons when we have liberty! Long hours we spent at the rifle range, where we combined aerial gunnery with trap and skeet shooting. From that brief moment of sport we went to hours on the machine gun firing line, learning to lead the target and to fire in bursts of three. The highlight of our work was that short period of flight training — a turn at the controls, a little aerial navigation, a flight to Anacostia, camera and machine guns, and bombing practice. Squads right and left! 46 Out in i kon r. Tacticai. kxkk(:isi:s. Wlien c reported for instruction in seamanship, we found our tasks more like play than anything else in the Navy. Sometimes vc played with toy boats in Luce Hall, and at other times we went to sea in the Y. P. ' s. We did not even mind the chief ' s little red book during the motor launch drills. Those impromptu races in the knock- abouts and whalcboats and the arrival of our new yawls in the middle of the summer were even more fun. Our introduction to navigation was interesting — after we recovered from our dismay at being handed that colossal armful of books . . . they looked well on a bookshelf though. . . . The work on the charts we endured because there were always interesting hours spent surveying or learning to use the sextant and the bubble octant — all part of that ounce of prevention to make sure that we never hear that loud crunching sound forward. Bumper drill. Start the P-work ! Gentleman artisan. Submerge. I don ' t get it! WfBfflt ?imI ,-c» n Stop the turn ! Efficiency ! From the newly-provided inner-spring mattresses we dragged our drowsy bodies each morning. After breakfast we trudged with reluctant feet to the lairs of the steam and juice depart- ments to investigate the mysteries devised to plague midship- men on sultry days. The practical considerations of machinery, steam and in- ternal combustion engines, the rudiments of the art of welding and pipe bending, all of these we studied. A morning spent in testing our flying ability in the Link Trainer, and another spent in a submarine were experiences none of us regrets. After the few minutes of listening to a radio buzzer we knew that there was another hour in which there would be no rest for the wicked in general and the midshipmen in particular, sometimes the lectures afforded a cat nap or two, if the prof did not insist that we at least pretend to listen. Out of the maze of lecture, theory, and experiment one fact became clear ; iron filings will do strange things when properly induced by a power called magnetism, or something. . . . -48 e PloMtxi- 7 During our plclic summer we watched witli cnvv as the members of Thirly-nine enjoyed tlieir Second (ilass Day ; vvc waited impatiently for the time when Our Day would come. A t last our dreams became real when Second Class Day arrived early in August. It was the " summing up " of the pleasures and privileges, as well as the responsibilities, of second class summer. I ' .acli of us became " King for a Day " as all the recreational facilities which the Academy has to ofier were thrown open to us and our drags. Somehow, during the previous two years, we had become imbued with the spirit of the sea, and we turned eagerly for recreation to swimming and sailing ... to the wind and the sea and the sun. . . . Shoving off with heavy dates but light bai.i.ast. Tarzan In the evening we went to Smoke Park . . . where we HAD dinner beneath the stars. Second Class Day moved toward its unforgettable climax at dinner time. Like any old park, Smoke Park has its benches and its bushes, its trees and its grass. But that night, unlike any old park, it had colored lights, a fountain, and a hidden orchestra. The summer air was soft and warm and the stars looked down like a thousand eager eyes . . . even the moon beamed his approval upon what must have seemed to him a fairyland almost hidden in the night.

Stately and historic Memorial Hall was the scene of the hop, a hop that moved at a lively and exciting pace, but somehow- preserved its picturesque dignity and calm.

Balcony interlude. il 51 A summer would be incomplete without a cruise. Second class cruise was a pleasant one. There was plenty of room and good chow. The watches gave us some first hand experience in handling a ship, and various tours shed some light on the functions of other naval activities. The cruise was not long enough to be tiresome, but it carried us to beautiful ports and won- derful liberty. ; SS - Not lazy — just tired. S2 Hacun Wie a aile(i Frankie passed the word.

After learning some of the theory of navigation, seamanship, gunnery, and engineering during second class year, we went to sea in order to learn how this knowledge is applied in practice. First class cruise gave us training which was new to us. Vc learned how to assume responsibility, and we learned how to get things clone. We enjoyed more leisure than on previous cruises, but mid- watches and navigation took much of our sleep — a four star fix gave us a thrill of pride, though. Our jobs were such that we gained an insight into the organization of a battleship ; we learned to maneuver in formation, to read and decode signals, to operate the engineering plant, and to direct the gunfire. We hope we learned, at least in part, how to make a fighting fleet. We FLASHED THE SIGNAL LIGHTS. We shot THE SUN r AND PLOTTED IT IN. 53 fv mmmmwrmmm Permission to leave the ship, sir. In Old Panama. = S k Back in the spring we were greatly disappointed when we learned that our trip across the equator to Rio would not materialize, but international affairs failed to consider the desires of midshipmen. We were not de- prived of pleasure, however, when we visited Panama. Tropical rain, green jungles, and old ruins colored with legend lent a romantic atmosphere to our short stay there. When we awoke one morning to look up at the Venezuelan mountains, we stood in awe of their majestic beauty. A thrilling trip over those mountains revealed to us hospitable Caracas nestled there in her loveliness. All of us brought back fond memories from Latin America. El Presidente.

No sight stirred us more than the spires of Manhattan rising magnificently before us as we swung to the anchor in the North River. The liberty boats discharged their cargoes of eager youths, and they rushed to join the hustling horde of humanity that will always be New York. We were the guests of the World ' s Fair and the Rockettes — some of us were lucky enough to get dates with those lovely dancers. We swarmed to the theaters and to the night clubs, hungry for the excitement, the adventure, that waited in every by-way. Our brief stop at Newport allowed us to renew old friendships and to tour the Training Station, the Torpedo Factory, and the War College. Then, for the first time in history, the cruise went to Boston where we were royally feted. After that period of play we had to go to work again — to Guantanamo and target practice and an early return to Annapolis. Then came September leave! .6 , • 0 D(nv.

We slept when we were sleepy ; we danced in the wee small hours ; we lounged on the warm beaches ; we fished in the cool mountain streams and the ocean ; we laughed with carefree forgetfulness of the fast approaching end to our playing, living the moment, letting tomorrow take care of tomorrow ' s worries, letting today take care of today ' s joys. The joy we had and the loves we had were left to the man who stayed at home, who had a convertible car and a smooth way about him, and we returned again to our work with only the memory of those happy days spent among our friends at home.

" 2de6 litile " ia 2e ue6 Life has its dark moments everywhere, and so all is not peaches and cream at the Naval Academy. Most of these moments occur at regular intervals, but there is little comfort in reveille every morning in general and Monday morning in particular or the weekly posting of the trees, or the inevitable crash of a spilled steam kit at each P-work. Some people never learn. 85 Mo WcdcUeA to toMxi Most of every officer ' s time in the Navy is spent standing watches. In order to be ready for the responsibihty of taking over the deck on a modern battleship, a midshipman works his way up from the bottom in standing watches. Plebe year we were battahon office messengers ; next we stood those long, weary youngster assistant mate watches, looking for- ward to the day when we could become mates, and sit down and even study a little. Even these privileges were overshadowed by the promise of first class company mate and officer of the watch duties. ' And Then I Said. . . . ' Part-time Postman. Many other cxlra jobs canu- upon watch through the years, and in addi- tion to being assistant mates of the deck and company mates, there was always the possibility of being an usher at the movies or football game, or being called upon to show a group of girls around the yard, or being the sea wall detail during the rest period.

Nowh ere in the world could he find such a prize collection of tousled heads, lugubrious coun- tenances, and woe-begone expressions. Just after leave it seemed almost impossible to get back in step with the exact routine of Bancroft Hall, where each moment is planned, and he who operates behind schedules is cer- tain to suffer. Of course, all one need do is follow Article 3000, U.S.N.A. Regulations, and he will never go astray, for that article lists the time of every forma- tion, study hour, and drill that must be attended, but . . . well, it ' s a good trick if you can do it. . . . All turned out. 88 Breakfast Formation The first step of the day was getting dressed and ready for breakfast formation — for who knew what morning tlic D. O. would inspect for shoe shines? After breakfast came half an hour of light housekeeping, to get the room in shape, the beds made, and the dust brushed off the most conspicuous places. The first class was at 074.5, and from that time on, study hours alternated with recitation periods until the drill period in the afternoon. The drills were in more practical subjects, such as sailing, sub-chasers, and in- fantry. The old saying, " A place for everything, and everything in its place, " had been modified at the Naval Academy to read " A time for every- thing, and everything on time. " ViiERE Does This Di ST Come From? 89 % Vke tuioale upiik the For every recitation each instructor was re- quired by the regulations to give each midship- man in his section a mark. Thus the httle red book in which these marks were kept was the center of attraction in each section room, and as soon as the marks were in it, the class relaxed — the battle was over for another day. The con- tents of the red book are carefully hidden, and when it was last seen looking coyly over the edge of the instructor ' s pocket as he left the section, one could not help but wonder what stories it could tell — of success and failure, of tragedy and elation. . . . It ' s too late now. 90 5) ICUdJ Halt — left face — fall out — draw slips — man the board — the picture works the problem — don ' t start the P-work until I say start the P-work — eternal vigilance is the price of good navigation — youngster year is fruit. . . . All of these familiar sayings, passed down through generations of midshipmen, recall to mind four years of academics, by the Severn, spent learning the fundamentals of the profession of being a naval officer. Mathematics, English, Languages, Ordnance, Navigation, Chemistry, Physics, YXqc- tricity — all these form the parts which must be molded into the background of the successful officer. 91 The Buckets Are Always With Us. IVe Woid ia Maik Mathematics — the foundation upon which every technical education is built, and the stumbling block which interrupts many of them at the Naval Acad- emy. Over a period of two and a half years, we were led step by step through college algebra, trig- onometry, calculus, and finally mechanics. But although our mathematics as a separate course ended there, its practical applications had hardly begun to unfold. For all the way from punching the log tables to get the morning fix, to watching the fire control answers grind out of the latest range keeper, we realize our dependence in the navy on the science of mathematics. Now Your Mistake Is- It ' s Really True. 92 ' 41 had the doubtful honor of being the first class to re- ceive an extra half year of math. As a result, we ended our long and delightful asso- ciation with that department in January of second class year. " But it ' s an ill wind that doesn ' t blow somebody good, " and in this case it was the members of the savvy first sec- tion, who were spared their traditional dunking in the Sev- ern. Imagine being dipped in the Severn through a hole in the ice! Lacking somehow that exuberant youngster spirit, ' 41 also omitted the rest of the traditional ceremony of burying math — it ' s fond fare- well to the math department being a subdued cheer as it left the examination room.

To start them in their duties they will fall back on the teachings of the Steam Department — Naval Machinery with its boilers, auxiliaries, and turbines ; thermodynamics and its Mollier diagram ; and the general background of engineering acquired in the classrooms and shops of Isherwood and Melville Halls. Machine Shop. Metals Lab. «4 Steam, more than any other subject plebe year, served ' to endoctrinate us with the neces- sity of careful and painstaking observance of directions. Step- by-step, with the instruction sheet our only guide, we built up our work during those long hours at the drawing board. Valuable as this early training was for the years of academics that lay ahead, there were shadows of still other things to come ; and for many of us there proved to be quite a bit of similarity between a plebe trying in vain to focus his eyes as he leaves the drawing room and a first classman feeling for the doorknob leaving the eye exam room.

By some strange coincidence, however, all three periods when actually timed seemed to be of equal length, but every midshipman knows that it just couldn ' t be. The proper technique of getting the most out of the study hour with the minimum of effort takes years to develop. But if you see some midshipman who can get a hair- cut, read the leading story in Cosmo, write a letter, listen to the radio, during one hour — and then put on his hat and coat, reach for the doorknob just as formation bell rings, and go off to ordnance with a smile — you see what we mean. . . .

To supply the cultural needs of our course, they gave us composition and English literature plebe year.

They also sponsored Friday evening lectures by prominent men in the affairs of the world, and supervised after-dinner speaking.

Study hours were designed primarily for preparing lessons, but there are many other little odds and ends which must be taken care of throughout the day, and they usually take up part of study hour. The barber shop, the tailor shop, dental quarters, and the midshipman ' s store draw their clien- tele from those people with enough fore- sight to read that fourth period steam the night before so they can devote the third period to getting a haircut. Then there is the classic story of our class- mate who stood in line at the store for half an hour while his battalion was reciting. No. 2 ON THE LEFT, DoC. Only a trim, please.

As the returning sections fall out and go to their rooms, the all-important question resounding through the halls is : " Where ' s formation. Mate? " And the answer is usually " outside, " which means that everyone is expected to look his best, because his shoe shine, best suit, and posture will probably be in- spected by someone before the formation is over. The Drum and Bugle Corps also get a chance to perform, and at the command " Battalions Forward, March, " beat out their famous step. Soon the terraces are deserted, except for Laddie or Angus, the regimental canine mascots, who usually come to formation and forget to march off, and the regiment has gone to lunch. 103 0nd44 Z44X The Department of Ordnance and Gunnery opened fire second class year with a " sketch and describe " broad- side, but before long settled down to a war of nerves — the success of which depended on subjecting each midship- man to Sheet lo ' s, splash diagrams, general all-around table punching, and giving him what seems to be only half the time necessary to com- plete the work. But a well-planned course, supplemented with rifle, pis- tol, and machine gun practice, aerial bombing, torpedo drills, and battle practice on each cruise, give our Navy what we believe is the most accurate gunnery in the world.

For those who are more skilled in certain sports, those short hours after drill are spent in varsity practice ; the great majority, however, are left to their own resources. They may go to the gym for a workout, go swimming, catch up on their studying, serve extra duty, or take advantage of the facilities of one of the branches of the ever-popular radiator squad. The members of this organization spend their time sipping " cokes " at the soda fountain, playing bridge, discussing the foreign situation, or merely holding bunk drill. But no matter how the time is spent, it is usually enjoyed (with the notable exception of extra duty) , and it all goes to keep Jack from becom- ing a dull boy from all work and no play.

Publica- tions, drama, music, hobbies, or oratory beckoned to many. Others, possessed of strong gregarious tendencies, favored the time honored bull sessions of Bancroft Hall. The Department of English, History, and Government called on the first class to enjoy after dinner cigars while learning to speak on our feet. The Quarterdeck Society had the same goal, and employed informal dis- cussions, heated debates, spirited arguments over rules of parliamentary procedure, and an annual public speaking contest open to the entire regiment, all good training for our future appearances as representatives of the Navy before public organizations. i •■ - ■■!

Some Preferred SoriaJ Mtmties ioi HeRBIE helped TO MAKE Memorial Hall glamorous. Welcome indeed were the regularly scheduled regimental hops that we enjoyed in Dahlgren Hall and the first class hops in the seclusion of Mem Hall. Behind those events were the socially minded men of the Hop Com- mittee, and theirs was the task of arranging details beforehand for the music, lighting, decorations, and refreshments. During the progress of the evening itself they were in evidence escorting the hostess and befriending the lonely stags who wished introductions to lovely ladies, the sword belt the symbol of their office. For our own Ring Dance, special efforts were expended, and the results obtained will linger long in our memories. We are indebted to the Ring Dance Committee for securing Glenn Miller ' s orchestra and for a masterful arrangement of the eventful evening, from dinner in the mess hall to the last strains of the National Anthem. They arranged details and secured Glen Miller. Left to right: Mechling, Gaddis, Weyrauch, chairman ; Burwell, Graham, Elliott, Maxwell, Sisk, Backus. 114 Bii.i.

Even When the blioler had sounded STUDY hour and MOST HEADS WERE buried in BOOKS THERE WERE STILL ACTIVITIES THAT CALLED STRONG. Evening study liour marshalled most of us to our books to prepare for the next day ' s battle with academics. Timeouts were called by some to write letters home or to pen an invitation for the next week-end ; there was laun- dry to be stowed and the morning paper yet to be read completely. There were those, too, who could afford to minimize on homework and who gave freely of their time toward various endeavors. Class officers met for determination of class policy. The Log sent men out to comb the decks for jokes, articles, and subscriptions. Musical club practices infringed on the " boning period.

Movies in the yard, informals in Smoke Hall, Sunday sailing or " ketching " with drags, or long rambles to explore the wilds beyond the County Bridge — all were crammed in before the bell for evening meal formation announced with finality the expiration of the week-end. Sabbath after- noons, too, were the locale for " Songs and Silhouettes, " the performances of our musically inclined classmates of the Glee Club, Mandolin Club, Orchestra, and NA-io, with programs designed to suit every taste from classical renditions to jam sessions de luxe. undcui llela oaim John Newsom gets away from IT ALL ON A Sunday cross- country HIKE.

Around the track of Palmer Stadium swings THE first batt to " twist that Tiger ' s tail! " Eight men abreast, the blue column turns to enter the stadium at Baltimore. Our 1939 football season, though marked with several defeats, was deemed a wholehearted success by virtue of the soul-stirring lo-o victory over the Army. That game was a portentous one for the class of 1941, for it marked the first time that we had been present at a victory at a game played away from home during our three years at the Academy. Portentous it was, too, in presaging the 1940 season. As a matter of fact, any football season at the Academy begins on the summer cruise. In the midst of tropical Caribbean heat and Boston fog. Captain Dick Foster led the squad in calisthenics on the deck of the good ship Arkansas, and more than one pigskin was left floating in the wake because of the limited area for running through plays. Sacrificing as usual a whole week of that precious Sep Leave, the squad returned to the Academy the first week in September to begin workouts in earnest with two practices per day. Because the academic year started two weeks ahead of the usual time, the regiment did not follow the procedure of seeing the first game on the day after the return from leave. We did, however, see the varsity in action in a rough scrimmage against the Georgetown squad — the same Hoyas who had been unde- feated for two years — and the regiment received intimations that here was a team that was above the ordinary. Two weeks later our visions were confirmed when the season opened with the traditional opponent, William and Mary, and our first victory went into the record books. Not one team, but two, won the game, and none of the grandstand qu arter- backs were prepared to call either one the first team. Cincinnati brought a scrappy outfit, new to Navy ' s schedule, and a snappy, quick-stepping band led by a drum major and a feminine cohort who captured our attention immediately. We chalked up another victory and felt that the ball was rolling. Mindful of the great passing of Allerdice that had humbled us 28-0 the year before, we were wary of Princeton, our first major test. But Allerdice was effectively bottled up, and the scoreboard indicated a 12-6 tune of revenge. The first battalion came back with stories of their own battle, with some minor casualties, but with most of the goalposts as a trophy. Now our " two ocean Navy " was beginning to attract attention, even from our arch enemy of the sporting world, Mr. Considine. The capacity crowd roared its apprecia- tion as the entire regiment paraded be- fore THE Notre Dame game. A sea of white caps made our rooting sec- tion STAND OUT . . .

Up to the Yale Bowl in New Haven went the second battalion, enjoying Pullman berths and morning liberty to see the Bulldogs added to our string of victims by a 21-0 shutout. So far five hrst downs had been registered against us — an average of one per game. Mighty Penn was next on the list, with the same Reagen who had given us trouble in years past. And although Busik eclipsed Reagen and the first downs were lop- sided in our favor, Penn did all the scoring to win 20-0. To the last minute, though, the third batt set up a record for support, greater even in defeat than in victory. Then to nearby Baltimore in five special trains went the entire regiment for the clash with undefeated Notre Dame. The Iri.sh scored first, then we led, 7-6, but an inspired drive the length of the field gave them a victory, 13-7. In our mess hall that night, the Notre Dame team was our guest, and Coach Elmer Leyden himself credited us with a moral victory. Still confident, in spite of the two reverses, that we were backing the best team in the nation, we sent them up to tangle with Colum- bia, the fourth batt in attendance at Baker Field. The Lions held us on the one-foot line, and themselves missed a field goal when the ball hit the goalpost, and the final result showed two goose-eggs. Two weeks later we gave the team a rousing send-off on Thursday and then followed them up to Philly on Saturday to find no rain, no snow — the sun showed its face! To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of what sports writers term " the service classic " both the Corps and the Regiment formed on the field together before the game. Bill VIII couldn ' t make his entry via autogyro as had been hoped due to some insurance restriction, but he was equally impressive in the armored bank truck protected by guards wielding tear gas guns.

For three tvvo-minutc rounds the boxers give and take punches — short jabs to the face, hard rights to the body, walloping lefts to the chin. Sometimes a punch connects and down goes the man for a K.O. But whether it be a one-round knockout or a three-round decision both boys are in that ring fighting hard. Months o f hard training — roadwork, footwork, perfecting punches — all come to the fore in these fleeting moments of the fight.

There is something about the seemingly efTortless ease with which an accomplished swimmer knifes through the water that never ceases to amaze the more land-bound onlooker. Behind this appearance of ease, however, lie months of intensive training and years of experience. But all this conditioning, although not initially appealing, has its reward in the intense competition of swimming meets where brute power is often defeated by ability and adequate training.

The first was hardly underway when a flurry of snow began to fall, dampening everything but ardor. Now encom- passing the Vamarie, the schooner Freedom, and the cutter Highland Light, as well as the tiny dinghies, the Navy squad has placed well in races in both intercollegiate and in open competition, some consolation for the fact that no star can be won with an N in sailing. Preparatory to a sail Engle, Southard, Moore, and Vincent adjust running rigging. Manager Bill Downer tends the line as Bob Hill prepares to dowse his sail.

In the first minute of play of the 1940 opener against Dartmouth, Larry Green scored a brilliant goal to set the season rolling. Navy trounced seven opponents and dropped games to three, including the defeat at West Point when the Army caught the Blue and Gold stickwielders in a slump and won 13-2.

Crew requires a longer training period than any other sport, workouts commencing in the fall, continuing during the icy winter and into the warm spring until even after June Week, aimed at the four-mile grind at Poughkeepsie, the Intercollegiate Regatta, where Navy has ever been a strong contender with Washington and California. 1940 Varsity: Cuccias, stroke; Peters, 7; Pride, 6; House, 5; An- derson, 4; Wheeler, 3; Lucian, 2; Kinney, bow ; YiAi icocK, coxswain. 1940 Junior Varsity: O ' Sullivan, stroke; Conrey, 7; Cross, 6; Leipper, 5; Alward, 4; Clark, 3; Carr, q; Lamiman, bow; Davenport, coxswain. mim V .%9WL. m Navy golfers enjoy two very distinct advantages — they wear the sportiest uniforms while playing, and theirs is a sport they may continue to enjoy while in the service, for the port of call is rare that possesses no local golf course. Six victories against two defeats was the record of Coach Bob Williams ' charges last year by a squad made up almost entirely of the class of ' 40. The graduation of ' 41 before the season opens removes Steidley, Klingaman, and Gaddis from competition, but the under class, led by Captain Bob Knight, have every hope of duplicating last year ' s triumph over the team from West Point.

Hunt lacked competition, except from Coach Art Hen- drix, who is no mean player himself, boasting defeats of Bobby Riggs and Big Bill Tilden to his record, but during the year Joe played a spectacular brand of tennis in exhibition matches with top ranking amateurs who visited the Acad- emy for the purpose.

The 1940 Navy nine went through a season that might have been described as unimpressive had it not been for the all- important 4-2 victory over the Cadets during June Week. ' 41 ' s support was in the form of two hurlers and a short-stop. Lefty Schoenbaum ' s cherished triumph was a win over his home state team from West Virginia. Rosie Turner ' s pitching was outstanding against the professional Baltimore Orioles even though Navy lost.

Whether or not their big business methods conformed to the principles of collective bargaining, maximum wages and minimum hours, free beer and paid vacations, no one knows, but they did achieve results — results which took the pressure off the editorial staflf in fitting the make-up to the budget.

But, above all, there is plenty of time for recreation, for sunbathing, and for the beloved " bunk drill. " Time, too, to renew the stenciling on clothing and check over equipment in anticipa- tion of the summer cruise. Perhaps the chief reason for the en- during popularity of Drill Week, though, is the fact that it is then and then only that we could turn our backs permanently on classes and examina- tions and face ahead to June Week.

Even without the parades and hops, June Week pro- vided pleasure galore, for here was a solid week without care — seven days to fill with a multitude of doings. We went sailing and canoeing and hiking, played bridge, sang songs, and made the days just as eventful as the nights. And whether it was our parents or the O. A.

" June Week was a rare series of events for the regiment and a show for the piibHc. But not everything is for the pubHc eye, and part of June Week is known only to the midshipman. So, for example, was the stencilling and cruise box pack- ing that had to be done before embarkation. Because ' 40 was the graduating class at our last June Week and they had innumerable things to occupy their time, han- dling the regiment fell into our hands, and ' 41 ' s first chance as stripers came when the underclass attended early chapel services on Sob Sundav.

Always an outstanding feature of June Week was the arrival of the athletic squads from our friendly enemy on the Hudson.

But John Elmer Dacey, Louis Harry Roddis, and Joseph Paul D ' Arrezzo are the names that ' 41 will associate with its three June Weeks as the men who had the necessary combination of ambition and ability to come away from the parade loaded down with swords, pistols, watches, binoculars, medals, and cups.

Novel was the ice cream molded in the form of an " N, " while the real feature of the evening was, perhaps, the conga lesson given by the genial orchestra leader.

This behavior was accentuated for the Class of 1941, with graduation taking place on the 7th of February instead of the customary first week in June. Our graduation could not, therefore, be accom- panied by such traditions as the First Class Picnic and the buttoning on of Ensign ' s shoulder marks on white service uni- forms. Indeed, the sole remaining symbol of our having reached our goal amid the snow flurries of February in a world torn by war was the addition of the gold knot to the handle of our sword — distinguishing mark of an ollicer in the United States Navy. 0.

Undoubtedly he learned some Asiatic steps there, those steps that made hops such a joy for him. Any gloom that classes and extra-duty managed to cast on his life were easily dispelled by a very special letter, a song sheet, a hop schedule or the latest Charles Atlas Course. With this jovial outlook Jack often found his ideas in conflict with those of the Executive Department and he al- most won a fur-lined rifle for his efforts. Beneath all this lightness Jack has many admirable qualities. Blessed with a foresight of purpose, he is able to find his goal and by tenacity to reach it. He was even willing to help, and his initia- tive and energy were abundant. His background of two years in the service gave him a ready grasp of things pro- fessional and will support him in his idea of being a good officer or no officer.

At three he saw a sound movie entitled " Annapolis Forever " or the " Rover Boys on the Severn " and he then im- mediately decided to become a genuine tar. His cheery pan netted him the pres- idency of his freshman class. The first year, of he two, he spent acquiring knowledge at the University of Rich- mond. The second he spent tearing THOMAS HARDY GRAHAM down the reputation of Phi Kappa Sig- ma. His greatest hobbies are a lively game of cards, sub squad, or a drill on his " Beauty Rest. " He miraculously escapes reports, never writes letters but receives plenty of mail, and thus leads a happy life. It may be said that, ex- cepting the cruise, " T. H.

ALLEN MALCOLM g i£ lf;.tZ, a Raton, N. Mex. The little town of Raton up in the hills of old New Mexico yielded this stalwart son, full of Irish happiness and western ruggedness. He loves a good fight whether in the ring, on the gridiron, or with the Math Department. Eggy ' s shrewd business head gives him a flare for constantly promoting some kind of deal. His ability to apply the old com- mon sense has often won the game both in the class-room and on the field. For four years we have wondered about that uncanny sense of " E. A ' s " which always leads him straight to a new box of chow or to the latest magazine. Under the spell of his sparkling eyes and steady chatter the femmes weaken quickly. He likes their company, but romantically, the little lassies find " Milky " a hard nut to crack. Coming from N. M. M. I. with an en- viable record behind, Al has lived up to expectations and established an admir- able reputation here.

FRANK WELCH, JR. ;r ,c t MJ.JL l. L San Dieoo, Calif. A Californian by sentiment and a New f nglandcr by fact, this curly- browed lad combines the swagger of the former and the cold shrewdness of the latter with pleasing results. Conserva- tive in taste as well as in thought and thoroughly logical in all action, Frank never finds time nor occasion to be gov- erned by mood. His casual lack of concern leaves him unscarred by the raging wars sponsored by the Academic Department. Physi- cally he boasts of a Scotch ruggedness that dates back to sea-faring warriors of note. The lure of the water doubtless accounts for a strong tendency to crew, though his love for a full pipe of raw- tobacco and a love to philosophize with said pipe in hand has kept him from as- suming the role of the serious athlete. Couple this with an even-tempered dis- position and you have an insight to the reason for his many friends and no en- emies. . . .

He isn ' t little and his pants aren ' t short, but he has that big smile and he ' s a real pal. He hails from South C ' arolina, where, so says Willie, are grown the most beauti- ful girls in the world. That is a broad statement, but Willie is an authority. Long before he eamc to the Academy he acquired a reputation as a snake ; since then he has more than held his own. Academically, Willie stands in that section above the middle of the class — the backbone of the fleet. His most valuable accomplishment is that he is a gifted conversationalist ; something that will carry him far on the road to success. Willie ' s athletic occupations were nipped in the bud by a physical injury. After recovery, he became an all-around athlete and played for pleasure ; and that is what he is — an all around man — a regular fellow you ' ll never forget.

Dick came to the USNA from the heart of old Virginia — Chatham, to be more specific. And cjuitc proud of his colonial environment he is, too. To him, Virginia is a place beyond re- proach, and he is always willing to ar- gue that point with anyone at any time. After finishing school in Chatham, he attended St. Christophers in Richmond, then Hampden-Sidney, where his inter- est was largely attracted to the college at Farmvillc, mainly due to a blonde influence. In case some one didn ' t know that Hampdcn-Sidney stands so high in Who ' s Who, all he has to do is ask Dick. R. J ' s. nature is one quite rarelv found at Uncle Sam ' s School for Little Boys. He is prone to be rather quiet, modest, and agreeable. He has never been troubled by the academic routine, but does not shrink from studying. As a friend, classmate, and man, Dick may be ranked among the best.

Penny didn ' t specialize in any one sport but rather j)layed them all. He is always on hand for battalion football and baseball, but baseball is his pride and joy. His home is Anna, Illinois, and he terms himself a country boy at heart — and proud of it. Academically, Penny has had only one close call and that in his first year at the Academy. He has the reputation of being one of the best dancers in the Academy. He is always ready for a party or a gab-fest and is always in the center of all the activity.

Smitty entered the Academy as one of the promising athletes of the class of 194O5 but a series of unfortunate expe- riences with the medical department put him on the sick list for a year and out of athletic competition. Although his entrance into our class was thus acci- dental, his ready smile with the slightly cynical droop at the corner has made him a popular member of " 41 " and won for him the soubriquet of " Smiling Smith. " Each Saint Patrick ' s Day found Smitty battling for the supremacy of the shamrock against his Scotch and German roommates. During the eve- ning " bull sessions " Dick was always in the fray, vigorously upholding any side of any question. His ability to use his wits quickly together with his use of " common -sense " reasoning generally convinced any opponent that Smitty was right. His fine collection of classi- cal recordings was increased nearly ev- ery Wednesday afternoon and became one of the most complete at the Acad- enemy. RICHARD LEWIS STEWART Memphis, Tenn. Stew is a true Southern gentleman — with the true Southern gentleman ' s taste for leisure, beautiful women, good books, fine horse flesh, and mint julep. Happily however his Scottish ancestry, with its sobering influence gives him an easy-going and well-balanced character. Memphis on the Mississippi is home to Dick and he is always ready to defend his native state of Tennessee against all comers in any issue from the Democratic party to child marriages. After study- ing chemistry for a year at Southwest- ern, Dick decided in favor of Navy stripes. At the Academy he proceeded again like the true s.g. to acquire his education with the eflfortless ease of the true savior. Dick ' s friendly and even disposition coupled with his limitless capacity for enjoying life, make him an ideal com- panion both aboard ship and on liberty.

Paul directed his early interests to- ward a naval profession, and with this in mind, he selected his high school academics to fit his aim. While wait- ing for an appointment to Annapolis, he spent some profitable time at a Penn- sylvania state college. When the ap- pointment was finally obtained he en- countered no difficulty with the aca- demics. The stars he wore for three years speak well of his efforts. Sometimes quiet, other times lively, Paul usually enjoyed himself during his Academy life, engaging mainly in swim- ming and basketball, and the Boat Club also stimulated his interest in sailing. At present " H. P. " seems to be headed for Pensacola when those two years are up.

D. took his high school education in military school and succeeded in, winning one of the appoint- ments available to honor graduates of Honor Military Schools. He had sailed considerably before entrance to the Academy and immediately began to use the many boats belonging to the acad- emy, joined the Boat Club, and sailed with the sailing team. With the advent of the new yawls, he qualified and rep- resented his company in many successful races. At times " Jerry " was quite re- served but he always managed to make the best of any opportunities to enjoy himself. When he was not sailing, he could always be found tinkering with someone ' s radio set needing repairs. An inherited love of music placed him in the choir and orchestra for several years. Academics held little trouble for him and were disposed of in the most effi- cient manner. El Paso, Texas " Anything else? Thank you. " Those words are reminiscent of Jerry ' s pre- navy days of jerking sodas and hopping cars, of bouncing pills off ' the counter to ailing unfortunates, of nights in Juarez, tequila, dark senoritas, music, laughter, tamales, enchiladas, and midnight rides in the silent desert. Before he came to the Academy, Mc- GuflT had already gained a reputation as a persistent holder of the floor in any " bull fest, " and, he still allowed no one to outdo him. His verbosity, however, may serve him in good stead, for he hopes someday to write a prize winner. Geranimo shuns hops in favor of con- certs or movies as a means of entertain- ment, and when everyone else is drag- ging, he is likely to be found reading, scribbling in the margin of the book with a stub of a pencil. Jerry is not a boxer, nor is he a swim- mer ; as a matter of fact, he has never settled down to any sport, but he is seen occasionally heaving the barbells, keep- ing in trim for those inevitable mid- watches.

Over the hills and far away — tliat was the thought that filled Vcrn ' s mind when he was a youngster in North Da- kota — the thought of greener pastures, of brighter lights. His life in the fertile valleys of California did not obliterate his desire to travel, and he spent many months knocking about the country on fruit trucks. When Vern settled down to a job in a grocery store, he found that his wanderlust was not a passing fancy ; it was a force that could not be denied. When Vern came to Annapolis, his roommate insisted on calling him " Goo- gle Boy " and went next door when Vern ' s fiddle began to whine. Elvie loves music, big cities, girls, and sun bathing. He visits the gym regularly to box or to grunt with the weights, and a passion for dancing sends him to every hop.

He has done much to make us finally believe what we regret to admit is true — that, even in Texas, the days of Kit Carson arc at last only a memory. Van ' s quiet, unassuming, congenial spirit and his unnoticed application to the realm of academics have enabled him to make a success of his years here without encountering any of the usual problems — save one. His natural tend- ency toward vertical, rather than hori- zontal, motion has made a difficult task of learning the art of propelling himself through the water — according to the Henry Ortland standards. Long, de- termined and assiduous application has finally resulted in a greatly appreciated removal from the sub squad. M. LofTJij Boat Club 4; Sub Squad 4, j, 2. 205 Tucson, Ariz.

Dave was born at Fort Riley, Kansas, on Armistice Day — his father was an officer in the United States Army ; so Dave was born to be one of these " Army brats. " Dave ' s persistency is an out- standing characteristic of his nature, and it is just this that enables him to strive on toward his goal. His appre- ciation of the broader and more abund- ant life, as evidenced by his love for good poetry and literature, has not been suppressed by the demands of vigorous training for his profession. Dragging has by no means ever been a bore to him, but still the object of his interest has always remained with a mighty sweet girl from Oklahoma. Dave is the type of fellow who treats all with a cheer- ful attitude — which is quite contagious — his friends are many and his future career in the Navy will be made smooth by his natural facility to win the friend- ship and respect of all with whom he associates.

Ed may be classified amongst those illustrious individuals who proclaimed the phrase, " Pensacola or bust. " This has been his incentive and his presence at the Academy is the means to his end. He is energetic and gifted with the ability to perform any EDWIN O. JOHNSON task he sets out to do. On the surface he assimilates the serious and looking closely into his character we see a truly smooth personality, which weighs de- cision on the scales of good judgment. Ed is congenial and always ready for a laugh. His ability to recognize the charm in womanhood is uncanny. His life at the Academy has not found him academically weak.

Constant- ly imposed upon to drag blind, he can- not refuse. Not that he likes to do it, but as an easy-going likable fellow, he can ' t turn down a friend in need. Some- times, coerced to go out for battalion sports, Ted just suns himself or doesn ' t practice at all — and then does remark- ably well on the meet day.

The first day of plebe summer Bill said, in a discussion of the pending months of academics, " When they call the roll four years from now, I ' ll be there. " They called that roll four years later and Bill did answer " Here. " Bill came to us from Clemson so mili- tary life has always been second nature to him, and from the day he took charge and presented the class of 194 1 to the Regiment until the day he answered " Here " he has been a leader with many friends in all classes. He is a good rebel and still claims that the South lost only because they had to return to plant an- other crop of cotton. His drawl is deep, and one need not guess what state calls him a son. His Southern blood becomes hot only when he boxes or carries the ball around the end, for boxing and football are his favorite sports, and he plays to win. We all hope he keeps on winning because he has the spirit to go far. At Large Have you ever seen a living example of a " will to win " ? — that ' s Tommy. Where it was acquired we don ' t know — Norfolk, Pensacola, or San Diego. Be- ing a navy junior, his homes have been many ; yet we do know that if spirit, ability, and enthusiasm foretell success, he will never fail — no matter what the game may be. Bob has the desire to execute all his tasks and duties to the nth degree of per- fection. We have found this true in both his academic life, where he never found the necessity of paying tribute to Tecumseh, and in his life at the Acad- emy and aboard ship. Never has he been satisfied to report an order carried out unless he could add " well done. " When Tommy hurled his first ball game for the plebes, the coach quickly realized there would be a vacancy for him on the varsity nine. Last year Bob was held back by a sore arm and a few bad breaks, and now early graduation has robbed him of an N star. M Stephenville, Texas Salt winds, gray hulls, sea blue — these were strange and new ; yet Bill was adaptable and he thrived, even away from the plains, mountains, horses, dogs, hunting, and sweat-on-leather smells of Texas. He thrived for his outstanding trait was the enjoyment of living and that has given him the spark of success. To him plebe year was exciting, both from the curriculum and extra-curricu- lar standpoint ; youngster year became not so much a grind as an interesting experience ; second and first class years were breezes. Bill is a splendid example of what good common sense can do. His friendliness is spontaneous for him, infectious for others. He radiates good fellowship, cheer, and hearty co- operation. Therefore his friends are many. Action, too, is one of his musts ; he is never inert. Swimming, basketball, football. Lacrosse, golf, tennis — all have claimed him. Yet through all the intricate passages and reverses of his Academy career, he has retained his frank sincerity and na- turalness ; he is still himself without veneer ; that is worthy of a man.

Appreciative of the charms of the young ladies, but seldom dragging, he was an avid hop-goer. Of sports only Lacrosse aroused any interest, and between sea- sons his idea of exercise was a fast game of billiards.

He was a student for two years at the University of Tennessee in their Civil Engineering school. There too, he found much time for military, and decided to make a career of it. Then he chose Annapolis over West Point. His slap on the back and sharp voice are familiar to most of us. He adapts himself well to any situation and makes the best of it ; but he is not without moods. None can be happier, but none can be more gloomy. Of course he has changed some since we have known him ; he is a little older, a little harder, and a little wiser.

Back home in Oklahoma " Simp " was quite the man, although he moved about considerably he had ample time to de- velop his many talents. His inclination toward music became evident but didn ' t last long. Athletics have never played HARRY MILTON SIMPSON a very important part in Simp ' s life, but he did play basketball in high school al- though he was a trifle small. Even though he has grown a bit since, there still seems to be too much of that good slow Southern blood in him for too ac- tive a life, but no one gets more enjoy- ment out of a good game of touch than Simp. His happy-go-lucky nature, his slow soft voice, and his eternal readiness for any sort of entertainment make him a tireless companion and a good ship- mate.

In high school, Wink ' s versatility easily made him a leader in sports, dramatics, school publications and organizations as well as academics. Technically inclined, he turned to matriculation at the University of Illi- nois in Mechanical Engineering. His determination bore fruits in making his first year at college a success in all rc- WENDELL FRANCIS GRUBBS spects. Wink always aspired to enter the medical profession, but at college he diverted his thoughts toward the Naval Academy. So the sick were deserted for the Blue and Gold, and central Illinois went to sea. At the Academy, Vink has led a rich and enjoyable life. Although he was no savoir, lie was ne er troubled by academic worries. He will be remem- bered by all who knew him for his cheer- ful altitude and healthy outlook on life. His congenial manner and ability to get along with men vill mark him as a man to be recognized in any walk of life. Boat Coub ' j, 2, i: Radio Club 4, 7, 2, i; Company Pistols; Black N .

Engineering abil- ities also marked his high school career. Bucknell University gained a good fraternity man in I93(), and the year had not progressed far until Andy was pledge president at Sigma Chi. Besides a leader in music, Bucknell found him to be a wrestler and trackman of no little abil- ity. From the Academy he will be remem- bered for his wrestling, for that com- mand of a second class summer com- pany, and for that natural friendliness that precipitated a crowded room of smiling classmates every night after din- ner.

Capable is the word for Bart. No situation that arises can best him, and he faces each with a rare amount of con- fidence and self-assurance. J. V. ' s record is an enviable one. While doing art work for both the Log and Lucky Bag, make-up for the Mas- queraders, and working for the Musical Club Shows, he has at the same time found opportunity for an invention of his own that promises to be quite an asset to the photographic world. Nor have his studies suffered either, for not only once or twice have stars decorated the collar of his full dress, but every year. You ' ve seen Bart ' s friendly smile at every hop — not even the cherished in- vention could keep him away. The Construction Corps is Bart ' s goal, and he seems to have all the qualifica- tions. He ' s never had to blow his own horn — not that he wouldn ' t if neces- sary — for Jim ' s work will always stand on merit alone. St. Louis, Mo. A big, robust ex-seaman with fiery red hair and face, fleecy white eyebrows, and an increasing waistline, is " Ossy " Dreyer of St. Louis, Missouri. When in a good humor he is particularly con- genial ; when in a temper he is particu- larly violent. Red ' s great store of energy and his na- tural bent for the water focused his ath- letic activities on sailing. Again, in characteristic style, he does not always hold the windward side, but is consci- entious, feeling that surely the wind will some day blow his way. He is truthful and sincere, but those are inherent ele- ments in his character. Ostensibly he is perhaps a doubter. However, taking into account his steady going way, it is safe to conclude that he believes more than he would make known. Although his temper is quick. Red has deservingly made multitudes of friends, who have come to realize that his small faults are easily overlooked beside his friendly, cheerful congeniality. Charleston, W. Va. Leaving somewhat reluctantly the carefree days of college life at Tulsa University, Tom spent the first two years at the Academy convincing him- self that he had gained as much as he had lost. His easy-going, unassuming manner made him very congenial but inconspicuous ; the easy-going trait even invaded his academic pursuits and cul- tivated in him the habit of warily in- specting the weekly list of unsats. Often among those whose Christmas leave is a speculation rather than a certainty, " T " nevertheless possesses an uncanny ability to buckle down at moments when his liberty is threatened and invariably produce the necessary marks. On the more accomplished side Tom- my is a musician, intrinsically by his appreciation and recognition of good music ; outwardly when coaxed — by his somewhat rusty, but nevertheless melo- dious renditions on the flute. His taste for civilian clothes, his polished manner, and his eye for the really attractive girls makes him a true connoisseur.

Big is the word for Bitterman — big across the shoulders, big through th e waist, and conlidcntially, sometimes just a little thick between the ears ... for with all the zeal of a Galahad in search of the Holy Grail, Frankie has consist- ently led his class in the race for anchor position. And even though his strength has never been the strength of ten, as his years on the weak squad will testify, any one of his many friends will tell you that his heart is pure, and big, too. There were two highlights in Frank- ie ' s life before he came to the Academy. One was the year that his hometown ball club, the Detroit Tigers, won the World Series, and the other the year that he joined the Navy. Life is a song to Frankie. His strong tenor can be heard ringing through the corridors of Bancroft Hall in loud and joyous refrain. And we feel sure that just as he sang his way through the A cademy, so will he continue to sing his way through life. Buffalo, N. Yy Bob has long been a member of that strange and motley crew who would go " down to the sea for pleasure — and down to hell for pastime. " He began sailing on the lakes when he was a kid in Buffalo and he ' s been at it ever since. For a time his ambition was focused on becoming a civil engineer, but after all, a " civil " engineer is only a " gentle- manly " engineer — and a " gentleman " engineer is a naval officer ... so that ' s how he wound up at Annapolis. There ' s something about the handling of a sheet in a strong wind that gi es a man an air of quiet competence, and as we ' ve watched Bob as engineer or skipper of a ketch, we ' ve always felt that lie knew exactly what he was doing. According to Bob, there isn ' t much in life that the sea hasn ' t got . . . and we ' re not so sure that we don ' t agree with him. Bob ' s love of the sea will be an aid to make him an olliccr worthy of any j)osition in the service. Aberdeen, S. Dak. From a library of wonderous fairy tales and the more realistic background of gatherings at the village smithy, Joe went off to school intending to become a writer and a psychologist. These worthy ambitions, however, ceased to appear as prospective professions when he was lured into the Academy by the adventures of a naval career. Adventures or libraries, he is still a writer of exceptional ability, as a pair of binoculars and an elegant wrist watch prove. He writes with an artist ' s intui- tion and a psychologist ' s science. Joe has a habit of doing superbly well what- ever captures his fancy. Back ol " the village smithy he was the champion horseshoe pitcher. Xow he plays chess and bridge so well that he almost in- variably wins.

JOSEPH EMIL HOKR Kanopolis, Kans From Kansas, in the heart of the mid- dle west, comes this dark haired smiling lad, born and raised in a typical, small midwestern town. Not entirely oblivi- ous to the opportunities offered by the Navy, Emil had a clear conception of what he wanted ; an appointment to the Naval Academy, and after two years with the fleet his ambitions were crowned with success. Studies have presented litde difficulty. Bull themes being his pet aversion. What Emil lacks in height is made up in vitality. His favorite recreation is dancing, and seldom has he willingly missed a hop. He is an unredeemable addict of swing and jazz music and is much inclined to be a jitterbug. Life in the Navy will never present many difficulties for Emil. He definitely likes the Navy, and his cheerful and op- timistic outlook on life will always be a priceless asset. He believes in himself and has confidence in his own abilities. His open frankness, willing cooperation, and easy-going disposition has made him an ideal roommate and shipmate.

He liked the sea and the Navy and decided to direct his course toward the Naval Academy. He joined the fleet and, after much study, gained entrance to the Naval Academy Pre- paratory Class. Now after reaching the goal of graduation his next goal is Pen- sacola and if past performance is any indication he will reach it without much difficulty. Although a bit dubious at times M.

There is something about those smil- ing Irish eyes that one can ' t exactly de- scribe. It is quite hard to conceive any- one so taciturnly smooth and good na- tured, so even tempered and likable. " Spud " never has a dull moment for he possesses originality and tact to enter- tain himself and acquire an air of self reliance. No one has more faith in himself than " Spud, " for " Spud " is al- ways right. Reading good books is his best hobby, while munching some of that good Nebraska chow of which he has a never ceasing supply. " There is nothing like good Irish chow, " " Spud " says, " the way they make it in Nebras- ka. " And so with an Irish cookie in one hand and the Irish or Nebraska flag in the other he raves madly on. The strong silent type are usually " Red Mikes " but not " Spud " ; for hardly ever is he stagging in at Dahlgren.

We cannot but wonder what goes on beneath that quiet exterior that " Butch " displays for us so much of the time. That serene German countenance hides a number of sharp contrasts. To quote his favorite axiom, " A man must be completely relaxed in order to think properly. " That describes " Butch. " Of course, it must be known that " Butch " believes that the only place to find this relaxation is in a good bunk drill. How- ever, he is as much at home in the gym — either exercising with weights, or box- ing. Just as he enjoys thinking, and the art of bunk drill, he likes to build his body and increase the bulging biceps. With all of this is a very good nature, and a quiet humor. " Butch " must cer- tainly be classed as one of that group who get ahead in this world through their own ceaseless efforts, arriving at the goal, whether it be connected with flying in the Navy or raising chickens in the Cornhusker State, not in one short jump, but in a steady pull. Berkeley, Calif. If little bombshells of efficiency start popping around you it is probably Gra- ham busying himself in one way or an- other. The wiry little crew coxwain is extremely industrious. His flighty ac- tivity and restless haste prove quite dis- concerting to most of us. The Navy is indeed fortunate in hav- ing Lee a midshipman because at vari- ous times before his appointment he seriously considered becoming Astron- omer, Chemist, Archeologist, and Phys- icist to mention just a few ambitions. It was probably during his two years at the University of California that Lee contemplated these dreams of the future that were destined to remain dreams. His attachment to U. of C. remains so strong to this day that parades are spoiled for him when the band recklessly plays Stanford ' s old battle song : " Come join the Band.

From up staid old Boston way via Weymouth High School and Randle ' s Prep School came Randall Boyd to grace the portals of Bancroft Hall and to bless his roommates with an enter- taining and prohtable companionship. Fundamental to - the - point ideas and opinions, well couched in Randall ' s own vivid, glowing, living language, accom- panied by appropriate gestures seldom fail to have full effect on his listeners. Except for extending himself suffici- ently to qualify as an expert with the pistol, Randall ' s only athletic activity was confmed to turning records. Randall is the " boy who cried wolf " with respect to comments on academic work including examinations.

But Gene ' s future was, in reahty, undecided until he heard of Uncle Sam ' s School for Boys. To meet its requirements, he entered a Junior College, and in a short time was Annapolis bound. By the end of plebe summer he was well indoctri- nated with the purpose of the Naval Academy, and he determined to stick it out. Cheerful, industrious, always ready for work or play, he has been an asset as a " wife, " and will be one as an offi- cer. The majority of his weekends are spent dragging and after that long, gruelling, victorious battle with the Academic Departments, Gene could be found in the gym taking a heavy work- out, preparing for the " return match " the following day. But weekends and weekdays have passed into years, and those years have brought to Francis that most valuable of possessions : friends. Soon these friends will become shipmates. JOSEPH FRANK ZAWACKI Bradford, Pa. " Zed ' s " first job was with the " Brad- ford Era " delivering the home town paper. His ambitions to enter the Na- val Academy began " way back there " and, because of his easy going ways, there were many who doubted that our newsboy would make the grade. He did make the grade, however, and it was all on his own. He stayed out of school a week to " bone " for the en- trance exams and that is all there was to it. The girls did not mean a thing to Joe when he was in high school, and even at the Academy he was the red- dest of Red Mikes. In fact you could count on your thumb the number of times he dragged Youngster year and approximately an equal number of times second class year. When we look back on " Birddog ' s " years at the Academy, we won ' t see him on the athletic field, laboring on a part in the Masqueraders, or working on the Log, but we will see him filling his bunk just where he spent most of his leisure time.

Probably his strongest idiosyncracy is loyalty, for even after three years he can, with a World Almanac in one hand and a wealth of memorized knowledge JOSEPH CLARK SPITLER in his head, harangue for study hours on end about the merits of the Lone Star State. As to sports, he has never made the varsity but every afternoon you ' ll find him boxing in the gym or out on the field for a game of touch. His chief sport used to be one of touch and go with the academic department, but aft- er plebe and youngster math were dis- posed of it was a one sided contest, for where common sense and a practical mind are needed, J.

Those tales he has told of life in a sail boat around Panama made that place most interest- ing. It was on a hot summer day in June, 1937, that Ray joined us. Since then many people and activities have claimed him. The wrestling loft has claimed much time. As a result of that, the hospital claimed him for several weeks.

Willie ' s high school days were filled with football and debating, not to men- tion cotton farming on the side. But in spite of being born and reared on a cotton farm, curiosity plus that old call of the sea, led Willie eastward. After graduating from a junior college, where he continued his football and debating — but not his cotton farming — Willie entered the Naval Academy. As a plebe, Willie decided to try his hand at crew, which limited his foot- ball to playing on the battalion team (which, incidentally, won the regimental championship that year). Academics interfered a little with crew youngster year, but second class year also found Willie on the Christmas Card Commit- tee, which selects the regimental Christ- mas card. It didn ' t take Willie long to catch on to the system and second class summer saw him in command of a company.

It ' s a rare thing that disturbs Joe ' s equilibrium ... a long-awaited letter from a beautiful girl back in Alabama has been known to elicit joyous and at times vociferous remarks. And at times a great uproar has been heard coming from his room — upon investigation we find Joe orating upon one of his favorite topics — the strategy of Lee and the high spots of the Civil War (for the benefit of some poor dumb Yankee). His third outlet for pent up energy — Georgia fish- ing. Though definitely not a member of the radiator squad, Joe firmly believes in some of its training rules. After all, who doesn ' t? Little Rock, Ark After leaving high school when track and basketball occupied his leisure hours, Pablo decided the hUls of Mis- souri were rather tame, and looked around for something interesting. He found it — this Navy in which nobody can deny there is seldom a dull moment. After that rugged year at NAPC, Pablo found plebe year fruit, and spent his afternoons in a shell on the Severn. Youngster math slowed him up a little, but second class year found Charley Paul pulling a good oar in the JV boat. Some people say crew is too much work, but Pablo thinks it ' s worth it — especi- ally when a trip to LaGuaira on a Grace Liner is thrown in on the side. Girls? After dragging one to the Ring Dance, N Dance, and Poughkeepsie, Pablo is convinced that a certain air line really knows how to pick hostesses. A slow, easy-going manner with a constant mental alertness to the funda- mentals, a ready ability in relating sea stories, and that eflfervescent love of crew have vividly stamped Pablo in our memories.

Here is the " easy come, easy go " type we all admire, but which few of us ever become without suffering the pains of bilging out. Gene manages this very well. Gene is one of the oldest fellows in the class and he has seen a great deal of activity in his life. He was the type of child genius you hear about, reading the entire encyclopedia set and every other book coming within his grasp at the tender age of nine. He finished high school at fifteen, led the life of a college boy for a year and a half, and then following his brother ' s footsteps, joined the Navy to enter the Academy. His three years experience as a " gob " plus his life in the Academy have made him an authority on service topics, and he ' ll surely make an " on the ball " offi- cer. Gene has reasons to be glad the class is graduating early for he is one of the eighty in the class who ' ve already given their hearts away along with their mini- atures. Htntington, W. Va. If we could have trekked across the hills of West Virginia some half a dozen years ago, we ' d have found one of the state ' s best high school athletes playing All-State football, good basketball, and pitching a bang-up game of baseball as well. Since he began his Academy life, though, a chronic knee injury has forced him to give up all his sports except base- ball, which is and always has been his big love. Even his love for beautiful women, which he ' ll never admit is all in any one direction, can not exceed his devotion to the game. The biggest thing about " Schnozz " is his effervescent personality. We can ' t remember more than once that anyone ever had him stopped without a last word for him to put in, and it ' s a known fact you can ' t beat old " Schnozz " in an argument. Despite his loquacity, modesty is a real virtue with him, and he has won himself more than his share of friends. Howard ' s presence has been a bright spot in the Academy life of our class. Q W. Washixc jtox, D. C:. Some bright day Jake will have his long-dreamcd-of sailboat and will spend his days lazily touring the South Seas. But seeing no immediate prospect of realizing his dream, Jake decided to go to sea in any possible way, and thus the Navy gained a real salt. He is the perpetually bronzed, rug- ged, athletic sort who is liked by both sexes. His shy grin has made many hearts flutter, and although he cannot be called a Snake, he seems to enjoy being the cause of the faster pulsc-I)eats. At present it looks as though he were about to succumb to the wiles of one of the more beautiful of his always first rate drags. Several times we thought that Jake might not be with us much longer, but he always managed to burn the old oil in large quantities and pull sat. With his love of a heaxing deck and salt air and his all around likability,Jake should prove to be a very welcome addition to the great fraternity of naval officers.

We remember watching Bleeck- er enter the Academy during our plebe summer. He did not arrive until near the end of the applicants and then seemed such a mere lad. Bright, twin- kling eyes, and platinum blond, curly hair gave him his appearance. He answers to the name of " Stinky " in his gang. The other members are " Pinky, " " Tony, " " Butch, " " Dapper, " " Willie, " and " Tully. " By the names no sophistication can be implied and none will ever be. They are a happy- go-lucky bunch, with women and song their chief amusements. However, to stop here would never give his real accomplishments for Bleecker is a lacrosse player of no mean merit. Second class year he was out- standing and was elected captain of the 1 94 1 team, only to be denied the pleas- ure of playing his senior year by an early graduation.

Out of the cold North of far away up- per New York State there wandered down Annapolis way a lad whose de- lightful smile and genial personality have gained him many a lasting friend. John has spent a good deal of his time upholding the merits of his home town, particularly a retaliation to some an- noying Kentucky Kernals, but has man- aged to make a name for himself in our maze of academics and extra-curricular activities, with perhaps more emphasis JOHN BOYNTON DAVENPORT 1 on the latter. Freckle-faced Davy, al- though he is resentful of being reminded of his sparse smattering, is well known at the crew house, and the mighty cox- swain came into prominence at Pough- keepsie last year by his furious bailing which kept the shell afloat. In John we have observed with in- terest and no little amusement that in- evitable transition from innocence to a certain amount of worldly maturity. There ' s plenty of devilment and joking present which often comes into strong evidence. His good nature is as always our blessing. Crew 4, 3, 2, JV. WILLIAM C. WILLIAMSON, JR. Philadelphia, Pa. The tide " A True Diplomat " fits this favored son of Philadelphia perfectly. He is at the running end of everything and knows everyone. The variety of his activities speaks for his versatility. On any Sunday evening he may be found on the rostrum, as chairman of the N. A. C. A. Then, leaving this, he presides over the Ring Committee. Next day he is sure to be found on some athletic field starring in soccer, playing golf, or start- ing a squash team. It is amazing that along with this he combines a prodigi- ous amount of social activity. Only after having visited his home can one know all Bill ' s attributes. Hos- pitality, charm, and a love of beauty are inherent in " Willie. " Moreover, a love of the out-of-doors and all sports keep him in shape. In the future Bill is bound to succeed, for in his dealings with people, he has a personality that overcomes all difficul- ties and warms his most ardent enemy.

Bob ' s invariable comment to any con- versation is " What ' s that got to do with making moonshine down in Kentucky? " No one has found out! He stood one in his class for eleven out of twelve years, and tied for first place the extra year. (The fact that there were only six in the class had nothing to do with his show- ing!) His impulsiveness is shown when he studies one night — then quits for a week. Study hour usually finds " Pinkie " doing stoopfalls or wrestling with Butch. When the name Pinkie is mentioned, the plebes shudder, but the upper classes recall some funny incidents in which Bob was the hero. They say you can ' t have your cake and eat it, but if you watch Bob in ac- tion at the table, and inspect his locker almost any time, you can easily see the fallacy of that old proverb. Girls! Well, there was the time he wrote six girls in his home town to send him a picture. The girls got together and he ' s been hav- ing trouble ever since! MoRdANFIF.r.D, Kv.

Battalion Wrestling 3, 2, i. traditions and customs of Kentucky life. In spite of having attended the same prep school that " Buzz " Borries did, Tony became a varsity member of the radiator squad. All the energy that he could muster was spent in entertain- ing visiting teams. Life on the farm is the source of many of his most pleasant memories. Tony ' s gun, an old double-barrel long Tom, with outside hammers, has knocked down many a dove and quail in the fields and w oods of Kentucky. He will probably be using that same gun, when, as a retired admiral, he returns to the Kentucky blue grass to live.

Nat Miller started his school career in the local school at Hardin, then traipsed on southward to Auburn and finally completed his three years of Joe College life at Murray State. His final departure from the country was when he joined our ranks and immediately be- came one of the bunch. Of all his pleasing characteristics, probably the most outstanding is his ability to make friends. Having once made his acquaintance, one feels as if he is a life long friend and very rightfully so, because anyone with as unselfish and common-sensed disposition, can always be turned to in time of distress. We need more men like Nat. HERBERT CHARLES HAWKINS -cUiA C , 50 Brooklyn, N. Y. Pud was indeed lost when he found himself in the colonial atmosphere of Annapolis, for it was a complete change from his home in the big city on the banks of the Hudson. McGath graduated from high school with the desire to become a business man. After punching a time clock on the 27 th floor for over a year, however, he decided that his education should be extended. With the guidance of a red headed midshipman friend, he bought a one way ticket and settled down to get this education and to make more friends. The Brooklyn twang was soft- ened by the influence of several room- mates from down South. But his hus- tling manner of New York has remained to prove a beneficial aid during several times when surplus energy was so neces- sary. All hands are envious when each day the mate brings five letters to the room, and four are from the vicinity of New York. He won ' t say much, but his record will substantiate his well rounded accomplishments. MONTICELLO, FlA. Junior was indoctrinated with most of the principles of Academy life during his year at Marion Military Institute, but for some reason his love for the service has waned. George had the misfortune to spend a good part of his first plebe year in the hospital, and the final exam in steam disastrously resulted in another plebe year. In high school he had played stellar roles in the dramatic pro- ductions and poured out his overflowing vocabulary in debating. He even went out for high school track, but since com- ing to the Academy he has displayed his six feet one inch of athletic prowess in the form of recreational sleeping, with occasional swimming and tennis to al- leviate the boredom. Mac showed distinctly " red mike " tendencies until second class year, since which time much of his recreational ex- ercise has consisted of writing special delivery letters to her.

When Horace Greeley said : " Go West, young man, go West!

The editorship of the North Holly- wood High School paper served to quicken his aspirations for a career in journalism, but at the crucial moment Bob forsook a scholarship in journalism to U. S. C. for the Navy, serving in the fleet two years before coming to the Academy. Bob ' s versatility has given him a tre- mendous capacity for enjoying life ; his philosophy does not look on life as a matter of time, but as an extent of liv- ing. We may be sure the analytical mind, practical logic, and stubborn per- severance which have enabled him to make so many right decisions in the past will lead him to success. ARTHUR G.

An unrest born of desire for the high- er things in life led " Mac " forth from his position as a clerk in Birmingham, Alabama, to the calling that has claimed us all — the U. S. Navy. From two years cruising in the broad Pacific he came to the Naval Academy with many friends, and since that sultry summer in ' 37 he has acquired many more. " Art " has been characterized, not by the roar he made in passing, but more so by the consistent effort he has always put forth and the numerous re- sults he has attained especially in the cultural field. We all knew that the snares of the " system " would eventually catch " Mac " as they do all midshipmen, but it was an interesting contest between him and the " Powers that be " up until the mid- dle of second class year when a very small infraction spoiled that all too per- fect record.

Although subject to both North and South influences, Mac has been called a hard-headed rebel, and his Virginia drawl seems to indicate that truth. Most of his time has been spent alternating be- tween the hills of West Virginia and the sand of the Virginia coast, and the com- bination of the two sections has moulded him into the typical Southerner. Mac went to school in several states but finished oflf his preliminary work in WALDRON MURRILL McLELLON Huntington, West Virginia. After an uneventful year out of school, he en- listed in the Navy, went to preparatory school, and managed to enter the Acad- emy. Mac has a good nature which has made him many friends. At times, though, he lets slip some caustic re- marks, but peace is soon restored. Mac is an example of the one woman man, and the opposite sex (other than the light of his life) holds little attraction for him.

Justly indeed is he proud of his family for his dad is one of the best pals a fellow could have and his mother is swell — and can she cook! And John sometimes drags a charming sister. In temperament John is as unpredictable as Maryland weather. One day presents him in the highest of spirits, but the next may drag him down to the depths if the right let- ter doesn ' t arrive.

Some tiny hamlet in Illinois provided the setting for this, where a dainty miss captured his heart. The second was to garner an N-star. One look at his full dress uniform will prove to you of the success of this quest. But his greatest desire, by far, has been to receive his diploma on Graduation Day. How- ever, the goal he sought most earnestly was the hardest for him to attain.

Take a good portion of a tough, fast, football man, another portion of music lover, and mix well with the most non- reg attitude of the Regiment and you have Ace. Ace has always had the knack of unconsciously outwitting the D. O. that we all wish we could have had at one time or another and didn ' t. Of course we have to admit that he has dated Miss Springfield a few extra times for several misdemeanors, among which was the justifiable offense of taking food into the messhall. Unusual it is to have such a non-reg attitude and a love of sports combined with such a broad knowledge of music, classical as well as modern. Ace ' s room is frequented by music lovers, for whom Ace has a fine collection of records, either popular or classical. A good host.

After a year at college he joined the Navy. " Arrow " was on board the U. S. S. Mew Mexico when he took his entrance examinations. The chief diversions of the " Leetle One " here at the Academy have been track and sleeping, with the emphasis on the sleeping. Between siestas you ' ll find him ready for a bull session on al- most any subject. In spite of the little time he finds for studying he has man- aged to stay in the upper brackets of the class.

Not content with mess- cooking as a naval career, he looked to higher fields. As a result, the Naval Preparatory Class of 1936 listed him as one of its members, and after that came entrance into the Academy. Sleeping, eating, and studying have been Paddy ' s main activities here. Almost any after- noon he can be found either in his bunk or at his desk. His class standing is evi- dence of his studying.

Russ has been a very busy man and it is exceedingly difficult to describe his accomplishments with full justice. His home town is Memphis, Tenn., and from that you can see that he doesn ' t mind a good argument about the rela- tive merits of Lee and Grant. He spends the rest of the time in his room smoking cigars and telling tales that have no equals. His main interest is athletics. He can tell you the name and laundry number of all past or present great athletes. His name now becomes Flash, and we know him as one of the best tennis players and Captain of his 1941 team. We are all convinced that the names Vines, Budge, Tilden, Hunt, and Blair are all synon- omous. Russ doesn ' t stop there but goes on to be a good basketball and foot- ball man. He likes to figure plays in all sports and can give you some good in- formation. Since Flash knows all of the athletes and a good deal about all sports, he is a capable president of the Press Detail.

EDWARD RUSSELL BLAIR, JR. Washington, D. C. You want to behave tonight? Then go with Lynn! That is the reputation that Lynn has built up for himself among his classmates. If you think him a sissy, try boxing or wrestling with him and you will find out differently. For six years, Forbes went to a Boy Scout camp on the Potomac where he won his gold palm as an Eagle Scout. Two years before he entered the Academy he won a two-year scholarship to Staunton Military Academy by writing an essay. LYNN FORBES BARRY All this time that Lynn was prepping for the Academy and before, his mind was on his work and athletics, leaving no time for women at all. Then he came to the Academy and continued to build up his reputation with every one he met. He may not get the highest grades in the Academy but he has that common sense and the poise that every Naval officer should have. That, coupled, with his complete love of the sea will carry him far.

Young Lochinvar came out of the West, and so did the " Wolfe boy. " First years of his youth were spent " some- where west of the Mississippi. " Our wild, wooly Westerner, however, came East in time to acquire three year ' s pol- ish at Western High School in Washing- ton, D. C. His father is in the Coast Guard, but he chose to follow his brother into the Navy. Tommy ' s personality is an interesting mixture. Equipped with an excellent brain, he is loath to study. Equipped with an athlete ' s body, he dabbles in- diflferently at sports, never exerting him- self enough to excel in any one of them. His tastes in music are sharply defined — if it ' s a waltz it ' s good, if not it ' s worth- less. Tommy ' s best girl is his mother, and he certainly lets her know it. His hobby of photography aflfords him rare experiences. A carefree attitude and genial nature have made living with him a pleasure. That ' s Tommy in words — I hope you will be fortunate enough to meet him in the flesh ; it will be a real treat.

With a smile on his face that comes from a genuine appreciation of liuman nature, Andy came from New Jersey. In that happy hectic period of plebe summer you didn ' t notice him much for he is like that : quiet, unassuming but sincerely industrious. The upper class stomped up and berated down our lives and never disturbed Andy ' s equilibri- um. Even they could not fail but to respond to his cheerful willingness to try and try again. But if you were in a hurry to get a haircut or a bath after those torrid drills — " sure, I ' ll stow your rifle. What ' s the number? " You can always depend on Andy. Later in our academ ic careers we came to know Andy better because he knew what we didn ' t : skinny and math and steam. Come into his room at any time. You may find him reading or piddling with stamps but he ' ll help you with your problems, cheerfully share his chow, and then go out to ruthlessly beat you at tennis.

With his s(|uarc slioulders and the de- termined set to his chin, he is every inch a man. Though of only medium hcigiit, he can well take care of himself, as the boxing numerals on his bathrobe indi- cate. Mac, unluckily, suffered a serious injury, while driving home on his first Sept. leave. After a long stay in the Naval Hospital, he was turned back in- FRANCIS WHALEN McCARTHY to ' 41 where we met him the spring of Plebe year. We like the way Frank looks out for his old pals from Butte. In that gang they all stick together like true com- rades, as ready to help one another out as to have a good lime together. Frank is set on the Air Corps. He has had this desire all along, and the flight course Second-Class Summer strengthened it. He ' s taken all the Link Trainer practice he could get so that he ' ll be all ready for the advanced fly- ing course. Here ' s hoping he gets his wings.

" Well, " say I, " he might be any of a dozen places — class meeting, hop committee meeting, on the athletic field, or even walking extra duty. " For Backus is a busy man. Paul is a typical sailor man. Wander- lust led him from Valley Forge Military Academy to Columbia to Rutgers, and finally to the Naval Academy. He im- mediately set about making a name for himself in athletics and class politics. Two years apiece of baseball and foot- ball have shown that Paul is no mean athlete. Backed to a man by his battalion, Paul became our class president young- ster year and was reelected. Under his splendid guidance the class has had its share of fun and built up a good repu- tation. With all his outside work Paul still has managed to stay one jump ahead of the academic departments. He ' s played as hard as he has worked. In fact, there ' s very little in Academy life that Paul has missed. Football 4, 3, 2, I NA ; Baseball 4, j; Hop Committee J, 2; Ring Committee; Class Pres- ident; Black N . PAUL HUNTER BACKUS Washington, D. C. After Hutch entered the Academy, it was months before even his closest friends found out that he was a Navy Junior. This was not because he tried to hide the fact, far from it, but because of his friendly and unassuming manner.

Having spent quite a few years of his life in California, Hutch picked up and became " pretty hot " at two of sunny(?) California ' s favorite sports — swimming and tennis. Our subject, however, is too inclined to relax to take either of these sports seriously enough to try out for the varsity. Being one of those affable gents who can get along with the most tempera- mental of individuals, Ronnie has lots of honest-to-goodness friends and that speaks well of any man.

In his home of Akron, Ohio, Vic was president of his high school senior class ; but poli- tics were subordinated to his love and natural ability for sports. At high school and at prep school his ability at wres- tling, football, lacrosse was outstanding. Vic ' s decision to come to the Naval Academy was sudden and definite. He wasted no time but vigorously sought an appointment, studied hard and passed his entrance exams. That is one of Blandin ' s characteristics — he makes up his mind with no delay, then acts positively and without hesitation. His classmates will never forget him for his willing aid when there was diffi- cult letter-writing to be done. He ' ll be remembered as a past master at that gentle art. Since finishing Second Class Bull course, Vic has been searching for the " universal truth.

From the sunny shores of Cahfornia came this embryo Farragut, Dick Wright. He came with enthusiasm, for before he was ten years old he had set- tled down to the ambition of becoming an admiral. We shall remember him as a prolific debater; his glory was the symposium. A romantic soul, Dick always preferred dreaming to studying — and wore his stars in his eyes instead of on his collar. His hobbies are music, horses, and fly- ing. A promising career for him in boxing and football was shortened by an acci- dent on youngster cruise. He was qual- ified both as a rifle and a pistol expert. He goes for " this military stuff " ; with years of it in the R. O. T. C, C. ' M. T. C, E. R. C, and finally the regular U. S. Army. With the ambition and the ability to someday fly the four stars, Dick will al- ways be of our number — " when two or three shall meet, and old tales be re- told. " CHARLES ENOCH McLEAN, JR.

His first burn- ing ambition was to sail around the world on a tramp steamer, then settle down up North as a Mountie! All was altered, however, when he realized that the Academy would be well worth seek- ing. This easy-going lad has limited his spare time to battalion sports, a litde dragging now and then, sailing, and hopeful letter writing. For the past score of years he has been trying to out- do his Dad in trout fishing ; but Mac Sr. still is teaching him how. The Scot has the very commendable trait of mak- ing the best of all situations. His philos- ophy : " Life is wonderful. " Mac ' s ambitions are, after receiving his commission, to win his wings at Pensacola ; to marry a girl, who can cook well ; and to celebrate New Year ' s Eve, 1999-2000, with THE girl on their New England homestead. This is a big order to fill ; but Mac can do it. Battalion Baseball 4, j; Battalion Basket- ball 4, J, i; Battalion Softball 2; Juice Club 2. acJUMH. i n jr TiFTON, Ga. " Oh, boy, this is the Best time of day! " Such is Jack ' s comment as he settles in- to the bunk for the night, and when eight hours later the bells ring in the morning. Then he props his feet up on the desk and reads his beloved news- paper, until a moment before formation. It ' s hard to say which he likes best, sleeping or reading the paper! In Tifton, Georgia, Jack has unlim- ited credit, his climb from paper boy to a well paying position in the circulation end of his local newspaper. He had attended prep school and a year of col- lege at Marion Institute before entering the Academy with the class of ' 40. He came back to ' 41 because of a long sick- ness with appendicitis.

HENRY JACKSON CONGER 234 Although Bill calls Black Friars his home, he has s]3cnt most of his years in moving hrst to one Marine base and then to another. His early ambition was to follow in his father ' s footsteps in the Marines; and although that is still his ambition, it looks as if the Navy will claim him. An eye for color and a flare for taking excellent pictures sums up his ability as the photographic staff of the 1941 Lucky Bag. In high school, Mac distinguished himself as an athlete ; here he has specialized more in his hobbies and extra-curricular activities. When Mac was at odds with the Academic Departments, we could always find him steadying himself in pursuit of his favor- ite hobby of making model ships. In Mac ' s temperament we do not find anything outstanding. Rather, he seems to be the steady, hardworking, thorough type of person ; a consistent student. Hard work, rather than flashes of bril- liance, has carried him successfully through the academic course. Battalion Lacrosse 4, j; Battalion Soccer 3; Photographer Lucky Bag 2, i; Battalion Track 2.

Fairer sex? W ' cll, let ' s skip that part — it ' s too involved. This is the end — here ' s hoping he wins his wings, draws thirteen spades in one hand, and starts for Paris, all in the same day.

Pat or Pete, to those who knew him when, was born in New York, but for various reasons best known to himself, he has always called Montgomery, Ala- bama his " God ' s Country. " One might easily say, however, that Pat is from no- where and everywhere, for he had an Army background and then turned right around and entered the Naval Academy through the fleet. The reason for such unprecedented conduct was that ever since his dreamy Lanier high school days, Pat had fondly cherished the am- bition of earning and wearing the co - eted wings of a naval aviator. His colorful personality is well illus- trated by his favorite pastimes of sun bathing, building " the body beautiful, " driving fast automobiles fast, and doing his best to drive his roommate crazy with his buzzer-blinker set. His natural independence, cheerfulness, and i)ro- found and sincere sympathy for the un- derdog have won him a lasting place in the hearts of all of us -Here ' s to wings and hapj)y landings!

From back behind the Alleghenies where the Ohio River touches the apex of the Golden Triangle, Jim came to join the Class of 1941, bringing with him an undying love of Pittsburgh " smog, " a long record of 4.0 work in high school and Carnegie Tech, and a firm conviction that the Navy is the life for him. He ' d already put in his ap- prenticeship peeling spuds on a naval reserve cruise to Guantanamo. It wasn ' t long before ' 41 began to think that Jim ' s slipstick was enchanted. He never studied very much, but his blackboards and P-works were always right on. His spare time he spent in a hundred various pursuits — soccer, " G- Manning " with Wheaties, battalion baseball and track, buil ding model air- planes, entering radio contests, sailing, and going to club meetings. Level-headed at work, whimsical at play, quick-tempered but friendly as they come, Jim is the kind we ' ll like to see across the wardroom table.

John is a gentleman of the old South ; his accent would never lead you to be- lieve he came all the way from Louisi- ana, but the gentleman part is obvious to all. He left Lake Charles for An- napolis just a few days after graduating from high school, bringing with him a taste for classical music, and an ambi- tion to waltz some day with the girl of his dreams, all alone in a great, shining ballroom. Although he does very well in the technical subjects, John ' s main love cen- ters in Bull and Dago, and for him one of the mysteries of life is why the system assigned them such low multiples. He goes so far as to profess an inner longing to teach one of those subjects some day ; so if in some future year you are renew- ing acquaintances about the Yard, don ' t be surprised to see him with the gleam in his eye that means only one thing — " Draw slips and man the boards! " 77.0(:7c-lct Johnstown, Pa. When Norm was at the advanced age of eleven, he bought his first trumpet with money which he had earned from a paper route.

What astonishes all of us is that one man, and not a very big one at that, can possess so much energy.

There is evidently something to this talk about " Sunny California. " Brad seems to have acquired from it a calm and level disposition that is so rare. It may have been the sight of ships shov- ing off out there that gave him his am- bition to travel. Until he came to the Academy, Reno was Brad ' s frontier to the East. But he did not join the Navy to see the world. He was a member of rU e f BRADFORD DeWITT ARTHUR the California Scholarship Society, and justly so too, for he won his appoint- ment via the Naval Reserve examina- tion. Brad is deliberate in all he docs ; will- ingly he sacrifices time in order to be right. His keen appreciation of fine things is evident in his enjoyment of good literature and classical music. One can often find him in the swim- ming pool in the afternoons or on the tennis courts.

Ever the optimist, he is continually amazing people with his cheery greetings at such unorthodox times as reveille. His interest in every- thing has not prevented him from be- coming expert in athletics, amateur radio, sailing, and hop committee work. The mean figure he cuts at every hop, together with his artistic inclinations and abundant energy, account for his suc- cess as hop committee chairman. Ev- eryone in the class will agree that he did a superb job on the Ring Dance. Herb left his mother, father, two younger brothers, and a beautiful sister in Oregon, Illinois, to go to Cornell Col- lege in Iowa and then the Naval Acad- emy. He brought with him and retained a desire to learn and succeed.

During our three years together these nightly conversations, often lasting un- til the small hours, have revealed much about his background. His parents, his two charming sisters, and his two big brothers, his home, and the year he spent studying electrical engineering at Minnesota, all received their share of discussion. But Ed talks little about himself and his past. He has developed too many interests to be thus limited ; consequently he can easily bring sports, sailing, amateur radio, sociology, women, music, religion, and a wealth of other subjects into the con- versation — often with a novel, but very sound viewpoint. Here we met on com- mon ground and developed a compan- ionship that we enthusiastically shared in every interest we found, in every activity in which we took part. iMONAAw- East Dennis, Mass. A tall rugged Cape Codder is Hop, born with a fishing line in one hand, a tiller in the other. Ask anyone in East Dennis, Massachusetts, where the fish run ; he ' ll refer you to Everett Hopkins. Here, we know him as the modest lad who is just a little bit smarter than the rest of us, but who doesn ' t want it known. Plebe year he went out for crew ; youngster year, he was unde- cided ; but second class year, his apish instincts started him climbing the rope. Now he is so proficient at it that any monk would envy his ability. Girls? Hop likes them all, is in love with none. His only reason is that he hasn ' t found any girls he considers worth his time and money. But the day will come when one of the sweet young things will corner him.

" When he was faced with the company officer ' s ultimatum that all boxes must go, he was momentarily stunned. He is always doing something — for one thing he can turn out letters faster than a foreign propaganda ma- chine.

Warren (or better known to his close friends, " Hutch " ), came to us with all the loyalties of a true Southerner, de- vout in his beliefs, sincere in his ideals, and proud of his heritage. He spent his boyhood as many of us did camping, hunting, making a name for himself in local and college athletics, and looking for an occasional flame from amongst the beauties that live hidden away in the Kentucky hills. At the Naval Acad- emy his quiet and easy going manner, his kindness, and his consideration for others have made him a highly appre- ciated friend and roommate and a con- stantly sought-after companion. His keen mind has put him up in the top flight ranking among those famous 4th Battalion bridge aces. Most of his lei- sure time has been contributed to sports ; his lanky frame enabled him to become an almost infallible pass receiver, even though we ' ll never let him forget that 50-yard one he dropped on the line. But misfortune will never bother Hutch, for his days are too full for that. Pelham, N. Y. Football; Basketball B Squad; Track. DAMON WARREN COOPER Dinty ' s early life was free from worry and care. His prized possession was an English Setter that followed him faith- fully over the gentie hills of Westchester. Sailing became his greatest love after he was introduced to the facination of the " frost bites " of Long Island Sound, and the tears of experience which have fol- lowed have left him a finished sailor and a practical seaman. The Naval Reserve ga ve Dinty his ap- pointment to the Academy. Since his DAVID STANLEY MOORE entrance he has turned his attention principally to athletics, and adopting a totally new sport, he developed into a Varsity Lacrosse player. If his eyes will only prove to be as able as his body, he has decided that the Air Corps is the place for him. However, obstacles nev- er bothered Dave too much and he will be equally successful in almost anything he decides to do. His good disposition can not be more satisfactorily proved. He has lived in harmony and peace with the same hard-headed wife for three and one half long wintered years.

Ken doesn ' t have to say much before one is sure that he is from Massachu- setts. When he left his " garden spot of the world, " he brought with him the " Boston bean hop " which made plebe year ' s dancing lessons superfluous. It is seldom that he has missed a hop. Ken ' s joy was realized when second class year came and with it a radio that had but two adjustments — off and " full blast. " It is not unusual to see him leaning back in a chair, smoking a big cigar, and listening to a hot swing band. He is always ready to take it when the tables are reversed. He has constantly been two jumps ahead of the academics, and his lone Exec department entangle- ment of note resulted in a one week cruise on the Reina for the hideous crime of smoking before breakfast. Although he likes to picture himself as hard on the plcbes, his good humor, thoughtful- ness, and happy manner make him pop- ular with all classes. He ' s more than a pal — he ' s a real friend.

A typical Navy Junior, he has been around the world, yet probably does not know the color of the American Indian. Ambition (irst came when it was de- cided that the only profession to take was that of a policeman. At least he stuck to the brass buttons. In his first few " teens " he mastered ROBERT PHILIP LUKER, JR. ' V UUxAtC model making, and then he was mas- tered by women. He went to Culver Military Academy and graduated with the class of 1937. Shortly afterward he lost his ring and joined the Navy, just twenty-seven years after R. P., Sr. Along the athletic way he spent four years wrestling, had a bit of Battalion lacrosse, and played tennis on his own hook. He is most famous for the Luk- er-Werth radio station " IPD, " which played records for us when there was no music.

George came to the Navy from Wat- kins Glen, New York, and has since been trying to make the Navy come to him. While aboard the Richmond in San Diego, he turned his talents to signalling, study- ing, and making liberty boats. Al- though he became most proficient at the latter, his studies led him finally to the Naval Academy. From the outset, his career as a mid- shipman was destined to become out- standing. His love of bull sessions, which his sea stories invariably domi- nate, and his genius for remarking the unusual, have made him a place in 41 ' s hall of fame. He will long be remem- bered as the man who had a classmate ' s coat altered radically to fit himself George is a football player, music lover, humorist, and out-and-out Snake. He hasn ' t missed a hop since Youngster Year! Other than a few minor run-ins with the academic departments, most of his troubles have resulted from his continu- ous but fruitless struggle to make the system fit his ideas.

Scott hails from the eighth wonder of the world — that amazing state of sun- shine and orange groves — and that does- n ' t mean Florida. Oxnard was the lo- cale for his earlier endeavors, where dramatics and the presidency of his senior class occupied his time. First taste of the sea came from the sea scouts — Scotty reached the rank of Eagle, then retired as an honorary member. Turn- ing down an appointment to West Point, he enlisted in the Navy and three years of fleet duty on the U. S. S. Lexington gave him a fine foundation for the prac- tical side of the Academy. From plebe to first classman, Scott has not lost that cool, unexcited, omnis- cient air — completely unruffled no mat- ter what turns up. Outside formations on cold days were his pet aversion, drag- ging his favorite extra-curricular activ- ity, baseball his favored mode of putting out ergs. Unpretentiius, sincere and sympathetic, Scotty will always be " one of the boys. " Little Rock, Ark. The closest Adam had been to the sea before he entered the Naval Academy was in a leaky, flat-bottomed rowboat on the Arkansas River ; so it is quite un- derstandable why he didn ' t acquire his sea legs until first class cruise. That three month ' s jaunt in the Atlantic and Caribbean last summer qualified Rollo as a real salt water man, a qualification which will probably remain valid until he sees duty on a destroyer when he may again be afflicted with that dreaded midwestern disease — mal de mer. Adam received his pre-Annapolis physical brace at Marion Institute and his mental brace at Little Rock Junior College. With this background, wheth- er or not he would have starred had he not boned Cosmo is hard to say because he didn ' t indulge in that pastime. In- stead the midnight oil was burned oc- casionally to excellent advantage. We ' ll all remember his tact and even temper and above all we ' ll never forget his friendly smile.

When Bob entered the Aeadcmy in the summer of 1937, he already had five years of military training ; so this phase of the Naval Hfe presented no new prob- lems for him. As for academics, he was provided with a substantial background of two college years, but his happy-go- lucky nature administered little aid to this fine fovmdation. He possessed the ability to excel, but was satisfied with an average mark. Bloat enjoyed all sports. Much of his time the first three years was spent on the football squad as a guard. It was in B Squad Lacrosse, however, that he was outstanding. During recreation hours, holidays, or on the cruises he could always be found with a small group of his friends. Earl, Milkey, and the Barkecp, and as Bob greatly appre- ciated music, his best friends will still admit that his favorite tune was the " Beer Barrel Polka.

Fortunately, it was not long after graduation from high school that Char- lie decided to forsake printing for a career in the Fleet. The sea-going en- vironment of his home " down Cape Cod way " had an important bearing on his choice. Time proved the decision to be a happy one. After two years in the Fleet, he turned in his holystone and drew instead a slipstick and an armful of books at the Midshipman ' s Store. A keen, discerning brain has enabled Charlie to excel in academics with a minimum of effort. In addition, a strain of inventive genius came to light in the midst of Second Class Ordnance. It would not surprise us if his name should become attached to something besides his commission. Charlie is not averse to hard work and has a knack of getting things done expediently. Restless by nature, he longs to get back to the Fleet. An in- veterate realist, he knows what he wants and how to get it. He has his eye on Navy wings at Pensacola.

Cal was once a subject of His Majesty, the King of England, being born in Toronto, Canada. His family forsook Toronto for better things, however, and moved south to Niagara Falla. After graduation froin high school he took command of a lathe in the C Carborun- dum Company. Shortly afterwards he began his naval career as a Sea Scout. Since his arrival at the Academy, Cal has held his course at a steady speed. Despite the occasional appearance on a tree, he has not lost his amiable person- ality. Qiiietly and successfully has de- feated all the exams that counted. ' I ' hat is the way Cal is — his outstanding traits are a level head, a calm bearing, and persistence — a good man to ha e on the bridge in tough going. His athletics are a recreation rather than a business, Init he is still a hard man to handle in any sport. Loyal to an attractive locker- door photograph, he drags only on ex- tremely rare occasions.

Defiance, Ohio As a civilian John enjoyed himself by driving his " gang " around in his " model A. " But his hours spent in fishing upon the Auglaize River in Ohio gave him a yearning for the sea. Having graduated from high school in Defiance, he en- listed in the Navy to come to the Naval Academy. With one day ' s sea duty in six months of enlisted life Swee ' pea ' s climb to the top began. Here, John has shown great interest in cross country, the sub-squad, and Time Magazine. His name is in gold over in the Bull Department as the win- ner of one of the annual Current Events competitions. A big husky fellow, John ' s pet weak- ness is food. He is quite allergic to " cans, " their stabihty not being up to his exacting standards. So Pensacola is his ambition. Basically Swee ' pea is a " Red Mike, " but his attendance at social functions, always in the company of a member of the fairer sex, proves his appreciation of the finer things of life. .J(B CXAJ-e CHARLES WILLIAM LYNN, JR. C .CS . College Park, Ga. Popeye ' s laudable ambition is to go to Pensacola so he can get nearer to heaven. Popeye came here from a lieutenant- colonelcy at G. M. A. He had a few stiff battles for 2.5 ' s, but leave usually found him on his way to Atlanta. The regulation concerning vehicles has re- sulted in hiding his great talent for fast bicycling. (Though it ' s a secret, there are medals to prove that!) At the Acad- emy wrestling early took Popeye ' s in- terest and held it. When unavoidable difficulties hindered varsity work, he gave the battalion team five regular points every meet. At home he treated his wife to the pleasant aroma of rum and maple in his pipe. The convenience of his chair to his bunk brought out a weakness for securing. The plebes all took their troubles to Popeye — and forgot them to the music of his pickup. Popeye believes in freedom and the rights of man ; and he has a deep con- viction that life was meant to be en- joyed ! Chattanooga, Tenn. If there is excitement, Ed is in the middle of it. He invaded the Academy like a storm, and there has been a storm around him ever since. As he is a rough and ready son of the South, it is natural that his main interest here should have been wrestling. Because of his friendli- ness, good nature, and ready smile he makes friends wherever he goes. But there is a deep mystery concerning Ed and the fair sex. Try as we may, we can ' t pry the straight dope out of him. EDWARD TALAIFERIO BOWER He is definitely a " Red Mike, " and en- tirely from choice too. What a man! We hope to be around when he falls, for it will be an event we ' ve all been waiting for impatiently. Food and sleep are his two weaknesses, and he always manages to get his share of both. With his broad sense of humor, he is the life of any party. He is looking forward to Pensacola and the air corps and, having the right qualities, he ' ll make it, we ' re sure.

One cold December day in St. Peter ' s Hospital in Albany a mother looked at her new-born son and little suspected that she beheld what was to be a naval ofiicer. But the word academy must have had some psychological effect, for after finishing grammar school, Spud obtained his high school training at the Christian Brothers Academy and from there came to the Naval Academy. The times Spud has dragged at An- napolis can be counted on the fingers of JOHN DIROLF MALONE one hand, and his interest in eating and sleeping leaves no place for women in his life. Those puns of his require some time for thought and a certain amount of energy replenishment. His professional interest lies in ma- chinery. To date he has not failed to take anything that came his way apart just to see what made it run. He likes to think that he is pretty good at getting it back togetlicr again. Watch for him, walking alone at a breakneck pace in some foreign port, or in his home town whistling to himself. (k)VI.N(;T()N, Kv. " Three cheers for Kentucky! " says Roger, even though he was transplanted into Ohio later in his life. The change was a sore one but did not effect him enough to dampen our many hilarious study hours. His violent mistreatment of studies was not " sacri-studious " be- cause of his natural brilliance and his philosophy that one must taste often ot the pleasures of life in order not to forget how to enjoy them. One of his impor- tant pleasures was lying in bed usually preceded by an almost morbid propen- sity for sloth and procrastination which he could never fight off. His energy when exhibited, was ruthlessly used up- on sailing, the radio club, football, and giving out the dope on the pari-mutucls. His mania for electrical switches utterly covered our room with them. We never knew what they would turn on or off un- til the pudding was tasted, but it af- forded a marvelous outlet for his ener- gies. All in all he was a swell boy for a roommate and he ' ll always be a perfect friend even in need.

There he was, attired in new white works, which were too big even for his two hundred pound, six-foot-one frame, and a white hat which covered his broad forehead. " Who is that big fellow, " we inquired of our classmates. " That is Kiki Lenz, " was the answer, " a big back from the coal mines of west- ern Pennsylvania. " At this description we conceived him to be a slow-witted, coal-heaving lug. We never knew then how wrong we were. People are attracted to Kiki by his jovial, good fellow attitude, but his sin- cere offer of friendship and his above- board dealing hold them. However, the best compliment we can pay Cliff is to say that he immediately dismissed from his mind any petty quarrel or mis- understanding. What incidents will we remember? — his incessant singing in that rich bass voice and his cutting the paper in two parts in that steam exam. May we pipe you aboard our ship some day. Cliff. Baltimore, Md. Good old Moose — six feet three inches of good naturedness. A pair of broad sloping shoulders, a wasp waist line, and two of the longest legs in the Academy give him the appearance of the he-men of western Pennsylvania, but such is not the case — he came all the way from Baltimore to join ' 41. Smitty started his naval career early sailing boats in most of Baltimore ' s mud puddles. Smith sen- ior noticed his son ' s salty prowess, and brass buttons followed after graduation from Forest Park High School. Biggest problem confronting Moose at USNA was sleeping at the proper time. You ' d always find him turned in right after dinner, and despite time checks from his roommate every five minutes, he ' d still be pounding the pillow at taps — thereby making 0430 reveille a daily necessity. Frequent bundles of chow made Moose ' s room a rendezvous for all hands. The goodies never hurt Moose ' s ability as varsity basketball center be- cause they disappeared as if by magic. .

He is one of the few who knew this Navy before he came to Annapolis be- cause he had made a reserve cruise. But that didn ' t weaken his spirit — he came on anyway. Plebe year he earned stars and academics offered no troubles. He thought once or twice the eye exam might get him ; so he began prepping for the final test by staying away from movies first class cruise. Costy took great interest in the Log ' s advertising staff and exam weeks would find him turning out business letters while others were boning. Besides man- aging the lacrosse team he played bat- talion soccer and was vice president of the Dago Club. He always made the varsity when the sub squad season opened.

Johnny fought his way through plebe steam, but since has found academics more pleasant. He has been an invet- erate Snake, furnishing many hops with lovely ladies.

His high school days were spent in Ocean City, where he made a name for himself as a baseball player. Time off from school was occupied in deep sea fishing during the summer and duck shooting during the winter. After Mike graduated from high school he was urged to join the Navy to try for an ap- pointment to the Naval Academy. He went to Norfolk first — then to San Di- ego, where he played the part of strong arm man for the fo ' c ' sle divisions on the USS Cincinnati. At the Naval Acad- emy Prep Class in Norfolk, Mike studied for the exams, and July 8, 1937 found him a member of the class of 1941. Burpo ' s main interest in sports is foot- ball, but he can always take time out for a swim. Mike ' s most likable trait is an ability to get along with everyone.

A firm believer in " the hard way is the best way, " Jack relinquished his po- sition as quartermaster striker on the U. S. S. JVew Mexico to become a mem- ber of the class of ' 41. No sooner had the first year started than he began to render aid to those in the academic mire, which resulted in saving many of them from a meeting with the Academic Board. When the new yawls came to the Academy, he became nautically in- clined. During a steam drill one after- JACK ANTHONY LaSPADA noon Jack studied for the exam and be- came a senior member of the Boat Club. Performances in numerous races estab- lished his reputation as a sailor. After a year on the cross country team, he decided to limit his athletics to workouts in the gym.

He can be noticed anywhere, even in a crowd, by his walk, which he de- veloped at West Virginia University. He always looks a little sleepy and usu- ally is. Life at the Naval Academy has changed Ben very little, except to make him work harder on Dago. His wit lies in his hilarious manner of telling a story. He is well-balanced physically and mentally, never extreme. After taking a whack at most of the outdoor sports, he settled down to an indoor one, Bull Sessioning, as his favorite. Well, maybe he did get a " block ' 41, " but he really spent most of the time resting it on the sunny side of the bleach- ers. He hated " Plebe tea fights " but made a pretty good showing at all the hops. His best dragging is done on leave when he can wrap himself up in a natty tux and step on the gas.

Three easy years of college life in the land of " Babe the Blue Ox " and the desire to prove that Annapolis is better than West Point resulted in Bill ' s at- tending the Naval Academy. Then the total war came. Unlucky shots from the academic departments had Bill ' s deck ' s awash, but the smoke cleared, the holes were plugged and Bill was the winner. Recreation found Bill prancing and dancing, either on the diamond or at the hops. The times he did not drag were bad times for his dragging friends, for he was always on hand to waltz away the lucky gals. " Now here ' s a record we ought to get — just listen to that band, " always meant red ink in the ledger for that week. But don ' t let that fool you : he can talk about anything — and does, too. After taps, he leaped with agility from one topic to another, his roommate agreeing for the sake of peace, harmony and sleep.

Vic ' s consistent avowal of the super- lative merits of Kansas speaks well for the Sunflower State, for he has been no mean traveler. That travel must have had its educational effect for Vic routed the academics in the opening skirmish with an ease which has left them at his mercy. His willingness to use his aca- demic ability in helping less gifted class- mates undoubtedly saved him from their ire during second-class year when their little escapades unfailingly appeared in print. The truth is that when politics, reporting and even tennis failed to di- vert him, Vic just had to turn to a bit of salty biography. Dragging with Vic has been the ex- ception rather than the rule. He has been content to achieve social distinc- tion on leave when less restricted. His social success is attested by the fact that he is equally at ease whether at a swank deb party or backstage at a New York show. A consideration of Vic ' s abilities makes a prediction regarding his future seem superfluous. Tennis 4, j, 2; Battalion Cross Country 4, j; Press Detail j, 2, i. Paterson, N.J. It is said that " God helps those who help themselves. " Leon stands as an example of this maxim, for he entered the Academy from the Navy without enjoying the benefit of prep school training. Since entering he has easily maintained a good academic average, not through intensive study alone, but by a keen, instinctive analysis of the matter at hand. His academic work, however, does not prevent him from having a great in- terest in athletics — particularly wres- tling, swimming, and gym. This flare for sports, in spite of his frequent so- journs to the hospital for repairs, can perhaps be traced to a youthful emula- tion of Tarzan. In his gentler moments Leon can be found reading some classic by Tolstoy or Dostoevski, or a book on his hobby, mesmerism. He frequently entertains the battalion with his soulful crooning or with some music from his violin. A very versatile person, this son of World War Paris. Battalion Wrestling 2; Battalion Gym 4.

Another Bud lurks, however, under that effervescent exterior — a contradic- tion to the madcap devil of no cares : a Bud entranced by the beauty of Tschai- kowsky and Franck, a Bud who barkens to Balzac, Tolstoy, and Maugham. It is this Bud you see in the evening twi- light, eyes on the horizon and pipe smouldering, planning a golden future — a future that will be his, for not even the fates could suppress the energy, per- sonality, and self-confidence of Bud.

He lived his early days in Southern Illinois where he attended Carterville High and spent two years at Southern Illinois Normal University. His academic record shows that he is a brilliant student for he stood one in his class at both schools. He probably would have been a successful professor at some college if a Congres- sional appointment to the Naval Acad- emy had not turned his career in that direction. Dick, having lived so near the Mississippi, has always had an ad- miration for boats, rivers, and the sea. Dick loves nature ; he has spent many hours of his youth scouting with his friends and admiring Nature while he fished on the banks of a creek. Dick is a hard worker ; he takes his work seriously and never ceases until he has done a good job. He always has a cheery greeting for everyone. His sin- cerity and good humor make him a cherished roommate. His ability, com- bined with his nature, will make his career one to be admired.

He had a year of college at Georgia Tech, and he would jjrobably be on the way to being a successful en- gineer now had not an a])pointment steered his course to the . aval .Acadeniy and the career which had been his boy- hood ambition. He liked making boats and testing them in trips down the Ogee- chec River. He likes nature and the out-of-doors, and is quite fascinated by Indian lore ; he had spent many hours at his hobby of collecting Indian relics. In a like manner, the Navy ' s strong ap- peal to him lies in its promise of a life in the open at sea. His easy-going congeniality makes Red an ideal roommate and an endur- ing friend.

Bob first got his sea legs as a member of the Sea Scouts back in the hills of Huntington, West Virginia. From the very beginning of Plebe " ac " year he showed the academic departments that he was a man to be reckoned with. The end of Plebe year found him wearing stars. Both Youngster and Second Class years he just missed starring chiefly be- cause bad eyes forced him to cut down on the studying. Bob was always able to find time for extra-curricular activities. Plebe year he took an active part in the Musical Club shows, and as a senior member of the Boat Club, he enjoyed many week- end ketch trips. He was Circulation Manager of Reef Points. In sports Bob concentrated on Lacrosse, being a member of the Plebe squad and B squad. Quite a bit of his spare time, particularly on weekends, was spent in Dahlgren Hall enjoying the hops. He very seldom stagged. All in all four years with Bob have been very enjoyable and we hope we will be shipmates again some day. Lacrosse 4, 3; Boat Club; Reef Points; Stunt Committee.

He very rarely asserts his phi- losophy of life, but he has one which stands him in extremely good stead. His definite ideas on the Navy were formed long before he came to the Academy because he worked hard to get here. After he entered he varied his endeav- ors with several extra-curricular activ- ities. As far as studying is concerned, he was about average ; as for playing, he did his share. The Boat Club was his big interest, and he could command a ketch well. Being Business Manager of Reef Points kept him pretty busy most of Second Class Year. The side horse on the gym team and dragging took care of the rest of his leisure hours. As for his disposition and congenial- ity, all that need be said is that four more years as his roommate would be a pleasant assignment.

In a party or a group Earl can always be found as the center of attrac- tion. He has a manner of enjoying himself thoroughly whenever a little time for relaxation appears. Second class summer found him the proud owner of a deluxe flivver, which made many an overcrowded and rushed trip to Washington and back. In spite of Earl ' s many friendships in the East, his real love awaits him back in Utah.

To hear Jack tell of it, his name in the old days should have been the " Da- kota Axe Man, " but he ' s reformed now and no one need longer fear his tend- ency in that direction. If diversity of interests means anything, Jack has a lot on the ball — and facts bear this out. His interests are varied, ranging from books to handy work, but his strong suit is technical work. Sketching, machin- ery, thermodynamics, electricity, or nav- igation — take your choice. Jack can get them and gets them well. He is re- served, sincere, determined, and capa- ble ; but don ' t be fooled by his reserve — his sense of humor is a humdinger. His greatest hobby, and the one he enjoys most is cabinet making. There ' s a gleam that comes into his eyes when he ' s wielding a tool that makes him look like an ad personifying contentment and relaxation.

If you see a little fellow breeze into your room with a pipe in his mouth and a smile on his face, that ' s Jo Jo. He may start talking about New York, the one and only city in the world, or Macy ' s, but usually he gets going on one of those sea stories that every salt likes to hear and tell. Jo Jo has a trait which is very con- venient for his roommate. Regardless of how scarce chow may be among the youngsters and plebes, he can always find a piece of cake or a couple of cook- ies for a forenoon lunch. Joe ' s struggles with the math depart- ment were hairbreadth to say the least, but he finally emerged the victor. On the other hand, he was quite a dago savior and always lent a helping hand to anyone less fortunate than he. With this spirit of cooperation and his in- tense love of the sea, he is bound to make a naval officer that any skipper will be proud to have aboard his ship. Washington, D. C. Though scion of a long line of West Pointers, the lure of ships and the sea proved too much for Bill ; so he broke with the Army and joined the Navy. Being an Army brat, his pre-Academy travels included most of the Army posts in the East and Middle West and Pan- ama. It was in Panama, while watch- ing ships of the fleet passing back and forth through the Canal, that Bill first came into close contact with the Navy. And, ever since, things pertaining to the sea : sailboats, ship models, and sea stories, have been his chief interest. However studies may pile up, he is al- ways able to find time to sail when the boats are in the water and there is a good breeze. No Red Mike, Bill drags an outstanding selection of femmes, mostly fellow Army brats. Bill ' s chief ambition is to become an aviator, but subs rate high with him too. Ship de- sign also intrigues him. No matter which field he chooses, we know he will be successful and well liked.

Arch is a quiet, dark haired, rosy cheeked, young man from Whitesburg, in the mountains of Kentucky. As a po- litical appointment to the Naval Acad- emy was not available after graduation from high school, he enlisted in the Navy in order to try it from another angle. Boot Camp at the Great Lakes Naval Station, Communications School at San Diego, the U. S. S. Arizona a cruise on the Texas, and battered white sides of the Reiyia Mercedes gave Arch a varied picture of the Navy before he was faced with the hardest duty of his young career , Plebc Summer. His interests are those of an average young man. He likes to dance and is seen at most of the hops. And along with the dancing goes a love for music, both swing and classical. But to really know Arch you should ask him to go fishing. It is his favorite sport. Arch gives you the impression of quiet forcefulness. In him ambition is com- bined with determination. The effect has been steady progress. Johnny hails from the " Sooner State. " ' Though born in Chickasha, Oklahoma, he received most of his schooling at Lawton, in the same state. Lawton is just about four miles from Fort Sill ; re- sult — Johnny decided to enter the Naval Academy. Johnny graduated from Lawton High School in three years and went to Clam- eron Junior College at Lawton. Two years there gave him his college certifi- cate ; and that plus a third alternate appointment resulted in a midshipman ' s ranking in the U. S. Navy. His first two years at the Academy were a grim battle with the Language Department (French), but he rode out the storm, and since then has had no trouble maintaining a good standing.

As the smoke pours forth from that Arkansas corncob Hank concocts his favorite pipedream — ship a thousand miles at sea, no gals, and no studies, just peace and solitude. When we first came here we found that Hank was one of those fortunates from the fleet who knew more about the Navy than most of us. Ask him about the " Qiiincy " and a gleam will come into his eye as he begins telling you a tall story about those wonderful days. And as for the women — Hank was one of those outstanding Red Mikes of the class. It was not until the end of Second Class year that he began to weaken. At that time a dark eyed beau- ty from the Southland led him from his chosen manly path. It is rumored that her culinary skill was most powerful in her campaign. With academics Hank usually waged a bitter struggle — it would seem that the other side was winning, but he was often tried and never found wanting. May it ever be thus. Lucky Bag ; Black N .

Bob left the home town golf course, theatre, beer parlor, and the cro- quet court on the front lawn to become a midshipman, and from his perpetual smile evidently enjoys the new life. That smile is set in the middle of a round face, giving the fitting nickname " Moon. " Moon always manages to stand lower ROBERT HENRY MATHEW, JR. in the class than many of the collision cases, and he ' s been on the wrong side of the fence with the Executive Depart- ment on numerous occasions, too, but you will not find a man with fewer ene- mies.

You will have to take his word for that bit of information gleaned from a rich foamy froth of chatter. He has a strong build and a pair of broad shoulders that don ' t come from tossing cream puffs around ; so there must be something in the story of wrestling with cases of that Good Gulf lube oil. An impartial ob- server would note that he called a halt to this work mania of his on entering the Academy, or at least within fifteen min- utes after stenciling his last suit of white works. The result, however, has been the storing of a vast amount of energy, small bits of which he expends in week long spasmodic attempts to star each quarter.

One of his absorbing hobbies is tink- ering. At the expense of a clock and some other miscellaneous equipment, he has developed some very scientific gadgets — such as a device to cut off a radio at taps. It would be idle talk to try to predict Looie ' s future in the Navy, but we can say that he is a classmate we will always be glad to meet in the fleet. ( Ard cL L. Conimicut, R. I. After a year at Brown, in Providence, Rhode Island, Bob gave up collegiate life to come to the Academy. With difficulty he tolerates Southern customs and the cold Maryland weather, find- ing the latter more severe than that en- countered at home. Despite the con- stant influence of a variety of accents, he doggedly retains his broad " a ' s.

The circulation department of the Log found in Bob a very capable man. Quiet and efficient, aided by a ready sense of humor, he handled all requests and complaints. In sports, he favors soccer, lacrosse, and squash. The Fourth Battalion teams can always count on him to be in there fighting for them. Somehow he finds time to write home three times a week without fail. Such punctuality, tempered with an easy- going nature, will serve him well in life. A good Navy man.

Even the Nor- folk girls can ' t resist him! Bob started to stand out early. An Eagle Scout with the Silver Palm, he learned seamanship first liand as a sea scout in a motor boat of his own build- ing. He was national secretary of the high school fraternity Tau Delta Tau and quarterbacked two teams, the Ter- rible Winona Condors, and the Fighting Ghent Wildcats. Then Doc came to the Academy. With his chin stuck forward and with his usual grim, determined walk, he stepped into our lives. Too light for varsity football, he starred in battalion football, track, and yawl racing. Bob has made many friends here, but he isn ' t leaving them behind upon graduation ; for once you have won his friendship he treasures it above all else. WAYNE MOWRER NEWPORT u J Davenport, Iowa " J o h n ny W a y n e, oh! Johnny Wayne. " Now where he picked up that name, no one knows, but whenever you hear it, pictures flash into your mind of lowan corn fields, crossed rifles, lacrosse sticks, football gear, and last but not least — pretty girls, and among these scenes was Johnny Vayne, quietly se- rious, but with an ever ready, infectious grin. Some of Wayne ' s achievements were but continuations of life before coming to the Academy. His N on the rifle team was not the result of four years training here alone. He shot a con- sistent " high gun " on the Davenport High School R. O. T. C. Rifle Team. Wayne ' s military training as well began in this same R. O. T. G. in which he rose to the rank of Lt. Clolonel. Most of Wayne ' s time was taken u|) in knocking an amazingly small bullseye out of a target at fifty feet. He was elected Gaptain of the Nav Rifle Team as a result.

Cleveland, Ohio Hailing from the Buckeye state, Frank chose the Naval profession because of his distinct urge to travel and because of his sea blood inheritance from an an- cestral sea captain. It was thus that the class of 1941 gained an additional member of note. Frank ' s very quiet and ever pleasant personality has won many friends among us. His light brown hair and blue eyes, combined with his personality and his ability on the dance floor, account for his being seen frequently at the hops es- corting pretty young girls. We all had intentions of starring plebe year and so did Frank. However, he didn ' t quite make it and once we even came close to losing a good man. Frank, however, had that final ounce of men- tal ability to outwit the academics. Though no star athlete, Frank has participated in soccer and crew. In the spring his interest turns to hiking, sail- ing, and tennis. Willy first showed his handsome head in St. Louis, Missouri. He finally set- tled in Tacoma, Washington. It was there that he felt the call of the sea and made up his mind to become a naval officer. Having come from a land of giant trees and big men, the land where crew is famous, Jack decided to try his hand at an oar. Youngster cruise, while row- ing on the whale boat crew for the U. S. S. Texas, he hurt his back. As a result, he has been forced to be a mem- ber of the radiator squad ever since. Buck has held his own with both the academic and executive departments. Once the academics scored, but he made a comeback that rocked them back on their heels. The score since then has been in his favor. His generosity with the brownies from his O. A. O. will leave a lasting impres- sion. However, it is his friendliness, good nature, and very cheery greeting that will keep Jack in our memories. Demorest, Ga. Tall, well-built, and serious in appear- ance, " Grabba " at first seemed too mili- tary for our Navy. Previous training in military schools in Georgia had given him a brace and posture still not at- tained by most of us. In spite of his rugged appearance and quick temper, he is normally quiet and usually easy to get along with. His activities at the Academy have been confined chiefly to battalion athletics, including football, basketball, and track. His first love in ARTHUR ERNST HOLDT the line of recreation is the movie, and it is a rare liberty indeed in which he doesn ' t include one. In spite of the fact that he possesses all the snakelike qual- ities that attract women, he seldom drags. " Grabba " has proved the worth of his intelligence, personality, and general all around ability in the years spent here. To wish him success is unneces- sary, he will earn it.

Micky has that suave air that is char- acteristic of almost all university men for he spent two years prior to entering the Academy at the University of Wis- consin. His days there must have been full ones, for while he can tell you many a story about play and fun, still there are the many jobs he held while in the university. Here he gained that wealth of experience for dealing with people which has served him so well at the Academy. At the Navy Academy, FRANCIS ALBERT RILEY Mick has contented himself with mak- ing friends and doing some battling with the sub squad. A foot injury ruined his chances of a promising track career, but he accepted it in accordance with his Irish temperament. With a permanent twinkle in his eye, Mick has had no trouble making friends. Yet, t here is a bit of stubbornness in him that makes one feel that here is a man not to be stepped on. We are confident that Mick will not need " the luck of the Irish " to make a successful ofiicer. Bradiord, N. H. " Up in the Eranconia Mountains God Almighty lias hung out a sign to show that, in New England, He makes men. " Proof of these words is found in the person of " Bunk, " the " Bradford terror. " Additional proof may be found in the testimony of any of the men he has met during his very successful box- ing career here at the Naval Academy. This lusty son of the mountains has been batting away at the world since he first started to crawl. His first co- herent words, " He only has two hands, hasn ' t he? " were an apt prophecy of his never - say - uncle method of going through life. His frequent, but not serious, tangles with the powers-that-be, academic and executive, show his abil- ity at both getting in and pulling out of trouble. Even if he had the opportu- nity, he could not sit by and consider fife from the side of the road. Unless he is in the middle of a struggle, be it sports, studies, or some hard-to -convince per- son, he is not happy.

RICHARD FRANCIS HARRISON 26 1 Houston, Texas To find this " long-horn " on an after- noon, the most probable place to look would be the fencing loft, for fencing has been Jim ' s favorite sport. Back in Youngster year he developed an active interest in sailing. As a result he has proved a valuable member of a number of racing crews. Outside of sports, Jim has managed to devote a good share of his free time to the Reception Com- mittee, of which he has been a loyal member. It hasn ' t been often that this Southerner has dragged ; but when he did, he surely showed excellent taste. If a plebe wanted to know the sails of a full-rigged ship or the Commander-in- Chief of the Asiatic Fleet, he came to Bottle, and he seldom failed them. Jim came up from the Navy and started his Academy career as a reserved but de- pendable plebe. He is leaving with his dependability well known to his class- mates and with his capabilities aug- mented by four year ' s training well-re- ceived. Sg iu2..-A, . Si Sidney, N. Y. Dick is the type of fellow in whose company it is always a pleasure to be found. His likable personality is evi- dent to everyone who has encountered him in his natural element. Previous service in the Fleet brought out his ambition to become a midship- man, and he has shown his enthusiasm for the higher things in life in his many accomplishments already. Besides sports and extra-curricula, Dick has several other hobbies worthy of consideration. His collection of pipes show rare smoking taste, and a good round of bridge after evening meal be- comes an excellent sauce for this tall New Englander. Though he enjoys the escorting privileges equally as well as anyone, he remains true to one. ' rJk IS M .r Washington, N. C. r When North Carolina sent Roddy to the Naval Academy, she dispatched with him all those personal qualifications which are essential to a successful naval career. Roddy attended high school in his home town, Washington, where he soon qualified himself academically for the more strenuous training of V. M. I. After one year there the lure of the Navy overcame his military ambitions, and Roddy changed leave address cards from V. M. I. to the U. S. Naval Acad- emy. While at the " institution, " Roddy has centered his extra-curricular attention in the direction of the Boat Club, where the new yawls have provided an outlet for his sailing spirit. Leave is spent " hooking the big ones " oflfthe Carolina coast. " Five hours of fishing with the boys in Pop ' s cabin cruiser, a two hour flake-out session, and then an evening ' s jam session with the girls back in town is the life for me, " says Roddy, as he heads for his Carolina haunt each Sep leave.

Some people might call him a Snake, but that is only because he manages to drag more on his monthly insult than they. Lloyd ' s favorite occupation is dragging, but that failing, or in the middle of the week, he enjoys a game of tennis, a swim, a turn around the track, or a ketch or yawl trip. A good book or a game of bridge is his bad weather standby. He has a great capacity for making friends, both inside and outside the Academy that will stand him in good stead. His home port is Eureka, California in the land of the redwoods, and, like other Californians, he doesn ' t want you to forget it. Never very out- standing either way in academics, he is, nevertheless, the type who instinc- tively knows how to handle men. In the Musical Club show second class year as he was cast as the Prince of Pil- sen, and he is truly a prince of fellows. We wish him luck and can hope for nothing better than to be shipmates with Lloyd. Choir 2, i; Musical Clubs 2, i; Boat Club J, 2, i; Christmas Card Committee. CoRVALLis, Ore. Pete knows two loves — acting and the Navy, and plays his part well in either. He possesses a winning amount of hu- mor which matches a rather calculating, even tempered nature. He can boast of being an authority on tennis, drama, and politics — and really convinces ev- eryone. Spring comes and tennis occupies one- half of Pete ' s time ; in winter Mas- queraders and Musical Club take all his time. Between seasons he is a constant source of good conversation and even takes his seat among the pre-study hour debaters. Pete is the proud possessor of a library of popular magazines, and with it he enjoys the envy of the whole battalion. He knows no fear of the Academic Departments : he even in- cludes " dago " on his list of conquered, in spite of a mad battle which came to a glorious end.

Some way or other he got himself drawn into the system, and now he is helping to keep the " old nyve " ticking. Mac has had his share of the breaks, good and bad, and he has come through on top as one of the most popular men in his class. As well as keeping up his own spirits, he has helped keep up the spirits and activities of the regiment by heading the Midshipmen ' s Activity Committee.

Unless you ' re a lover of baseball and hockey, and Boston teams in particular, don ' t get him started or else you will have a long discussion to face. Once each year Herb gets a bad break and is prevented by some reason or other from getting in a full season of baseball. His ardor never cools, however, and he follows his team as seriously as he applies himself to his work. A fairly regular hop-goer since the end of youngster year, we ' ve yet to see him " bricked. " His friendly personality overcomes a natural reserve to draw many friends to him. Herb is one of those people who can always bring a smile when things aren ' t run- ning smoothly and make you feel better in spite of yourself. Along with his steady calm and reliability, these qual- ities should prove him to be a valuable friend and real asset to the service.

Living not far from the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Bill ' s interest was naturally aroused by the Navy. Not wishing to waste time, he came to the Academy fresh out of high school after first taking time out to establish a record in swim- ming. This record still stands today. Swimming, then, has taken up most of Bill ' s time at the Academy. Many an evening he has almost missed supper formation because he remained in the pool for a last few minutes. But when WILLIAM H. REINHARDT, JR. the long training season is over, he turns to second love — model building. Ask him sometime to show you his models! His collection ranges from submarines to Transatlantic clippers, all actual scale size. Though short in stature. Bill is big in friendliness. He is ever ready to lend a helping hand. He has received many a set-back, but he has usually managed to find some element of humor in it to tide him over. Plebe Swimming 4; Battalion Swimming 3; Varsity Swimming 2, i. HAROLD G. LEAHY . , UZ Norfolk, Va. Binks has been acquainted with the Navy for a number of years. He has observed the service from almost every naval station from Lakehurst to Shang- hai : the Naval Academy was no sur- prise to him. Plebe year he appeared as a promising young wrestler and a fast lacrosse man, but for various and sundry reasons his plans were slightly altered, though he pursued both sports with plenty of en- thusiasm for the following three years. To omit the romantic interest would leave the picture altogether incomplete. Through three and a half years of toil, turmoil, and confusion, Binks and Pea- nut have managed to remain in that stage we all read and hear about but see so seldom to such an extent that many wagers have been made as to the outcome. Professionally, Binks has what it takes to make a good naval officer. Sincere, obliging, and with an ability to meet any situation with the necessary vigor and tact, he ' ll climb right up the ranks.

Boston Clharlic, born in Milton, Mas- sachusetts, soon moved to Boston — which he now claims as his home. Living near the sea, Walter got slightly salty before he sailed the Severn. This, and a year at Boston College made him feel pretty much at case around the old Academy. Endowed with a cynical sense of humor, he never orried but took things as they came — he bellowed long and loudly, but it was all in fun. Walt ' s troubles at the Naval School quickly fell into three parts : getting himself up that awfully high rope, con- vincing Massachusetts girls that Anna- polis wasn ' t too far away, and getting enough gravy in his dailies to hold up those exams. The fall months at the Academy found Walter playing battal- ion football and reading magazines ; during the winter it was more maga- zines ; but in the spring the young man ' s fancy lightly turned to thoughts of sail- boats — this was tops. Whether Walter flys, dives, or punches a stadimeter is as yet undecided, but whatever branch, we wish him luck and know he ' ll do well.

Before having any inkling that his fu- ture was to be a sea-faring one, Arthur took a pre-medical course at the Uni- versity of Missouri. Although these studies have not helped him much at the Academy, he has done well scholas- tically. And for this reason alone, if for no other, Arthur has retained the ex- tremely valuable trait of public service. St. Louis can well be proud of Arthur. As long as we have known him, we have never seen him depressed, never dis- heartened, and never dull ; many and many an empty moment has been en- livened by his good natured humor. Whenever a " bull session " is in progress, it is a safe bet that Arthur will be in the middle of it. Applying the philosophy of the maximum results with a minimum of effort to the problem of academics, he has fared remarkably well — although the longing sometimes returns for his good old college days.

Bill possesses, besides his pleasing drawl and true Southern courtesy, a certain " female appeal " which is en- vied by all those who know him. It may be unfair to class him as a Casanova, but we still maintain that his experiences WILLIAM MARSHALL MILLER with the " flying squadron " have had a great deal to do with his success on the track team. Although a good law practice com- bined with politics was Bill ' s first aim, he has joined us all in the more techni- cal life of the Navy, and we hope for as many more good times together after graduation as we have had before. If Bill were to fly the four star flag his first order would be for all hands to enjoy one continuous youngster cruise, some plenty good leaves, with a little neces- sary work thrown in between times.

Actually it is merely " Rojo ' s " aflfable nature that gives him this apparently unconcerned air. Although he ' s not particularly out- standing in any field of athletics, Grant can, nevertheless, well hold his own in practically any. He specializes in Bat- talion football and varsity baseball. Despite these many activities he man- ages to spend his rainy afternoons act- ing with the local dramatic clubs. Sailing was almost his Waterloo for a time until he benefited from some ex- cellent extra instruction in this line. His ability at drill might also be partially ex- plained by his zeal to practice, too, even during recreation on the rear terrace. Generous and likable.

ROBERT LERO Y LEASURE DAVID MEHNERT SCHELP 7 St. Louis, Mo. Dave was born in St. Louis and has lived in or around that city most of his life. After the usual preliminary school- ing, he spent a year at Washington Uni- versity in the Engineering School. He had an early opportunity to make use of his engineering knowledge when he obtained a post as a County Supervising Surveyor of Roads. Dave has always possessed considerable mechanical skill, and could usually be found working on his car when not otherwise engaged. " Friday " has had a struggle with the Academic Board all the way through, but his good-humored persistence has kept him always on top. Dave ' s extra curricular activities have been confined to ketch sailing, but there he has proven himself to be one of the most loyal Boat Clubbers in the Regi- ment. His only weakness, a tendency of " not getting the word, " has been overcome since his entrance into the Academy, for he is now capable, alert and a con- formist in every military sense of the word.

During his boyhood, Bill was influ- enced by the naval career of his father, and his earliest remembered ambition was to follow in his father ' s footsteps. After overcoming numerous obstacles, he is at last realizing his ambition. Bill is gifted with a deep and sincere love of music, and he utilizes practically all of his spare hours in pursuing his art. Perhaps he is not yet a rival of the great Kreisler, but still he doesn ' t just " fiddle around, " ; he is really an accomplished violinist. The Musical Club Shows and the choir have seen Bill ' s smiling face and heard his voice ever since he was a plebe. Bill ' s other hobbies are sailing in the dinghies and the Vamaric, and building detailed boat models. Always quiet, good-humored, hard working, congenial and persevering. Bill has a most remarkable faculty for mak- ing the best use of his time. Wliciievcr he becomes interested in a job, he gen- erally takes it up whole-heartedly and the result is that his hobbies are related and leave him never a dull nioincni.

Dak. On the day that Jim received his ap- pointment to the Naval Academy, he had been working as an assistant sur- veying a highway. It was the third of July, and one of those hot, dry and windy days. As Jim walked along in the heat of 1 20 degrees, sparrows and mead- ow larks hopped doggedly after him, to keep in his shadow. His footsteps sent clouds of dust up to choke him. Jim ' s only thoughts were of the celebration to be held the next day. That night he received the announcement of his ap- pointment and there was no holiday for Jim ; he spent the next day on the train. Perhaps it is because he is so good natured and happy that everyone likes Jim. Those who know him best see him as a perfect friend and shipmate. This tall, rangy, soft spoken westerner will go far out of his way to help someone. In his spare moments, Jim may be found on the Basketball court, but it takes little persuasion to get him to bend over a billiard table. Wilmington, Calif. Like most of us who wound up in the Navy, Dev didn ' t know just what he was going to do for a career until one summer he shipped aboard a merchant- man for his first taste of seagoing life. After that it didn ' t take long for him to abandon his aspirations to become an engineer or a politician. Freshman year at college completed, he wrenched him- self away from his beloved California to take up his new life on the Severn. Dev brought with him an exceedingly vast store of common knowledge, and a gifted tongue. He can speak with au- thority on almost any contemporary subject, but sometimes we question the authenticity of the astounding figures he quotes in establishing his claims. Next to a good argument, he likes best a good game of billiards or bridge. Keeping on the right side of the aca- demic department has always been the very least of his worries. His frankness sometimes astounds us, but his keen ob- servation, good common sense, and ac- tive mind will carry him a long way in his profession. Reeder, N. Dak. One of Krebby ' s summer vagabond vacations took him to the West Coast, where he got his first glimpse of the ocean. Perhaps that trip furnished the motive for his coming to Annapolis, for any young man is fascinated by his first glimpse of the ocean — especially a fel- low from the plains of Dakota. He wrestled with Chemical formulae for two years at the University of North Dakota, working on a surveying crew during the summer months. Becoming EUGENE WILLIAM KREBSBACH thoroughly disgusted with the dust and grasshoppers, he finally decided to in- vestigate the Navy. He joined us late plebe summer, but it took him only a short time to become accustomed to his new surroundings. He quickly gained our admiration for the most uncanny manner in which he juggled his math. Every time Krebby buys a suit, he is short on quantity, but " size isn ' t every- thing in this world, ' cuz Napoleon and Nelson were short too!

" Big-hcartcd Burt, " that is what they call him and properly. He is the fellow who gives you " the shirt off of his back " as the saying goes. The combination of this sincere generosity and his ever- present refreshing sense of humor make Burt thoroughly likable. His cheerful outlook is perhaps the result of his abil- ity to see things in their true light. There are few as fortunate as Burt in traveling experience. Having made res- idences in New England, the Middle BURTOxN LORD PARKE . ffJa a- ' a. West, and on the West Coast, he is quite familiar with the U. S. A. Yarns of visits to China, Guam, Hawaii and parts of Europe are most interesting. Conserva- tive taste and natural poise will insure success in any social circle. Although Burt had a decided weakness for the fairer sex, it is merely to the extent of being enjoyable, but never too serious. Besides dragging, his favorite sport is swimming, which he does expertly. His diligent application, sincere and high sense of honor will steer his ship of life clear of the rocks and shoals.

Of these, good humor, sub- tle wit, and a sincere generosity are most outstanding. He has a good philosophy of life and is ever looking for a similar one in others. Having spent some seven years of his life " on his own, " knocking about the world. Bob has a trail of friends that extends almost around the world. Bob is extremely fond of horses and will talk for hours with anyone who likes the subject as much as he does. Academics have been no obstacle for this brilliant lad, and though not on any varsity athletic list, he is, neverthe- less, quite agile when it comes to sports — boxing and football being his favor- ites. In planning for his future. Bob has two cherished ambitions : that of being a bachelor and that of becoming Navy ' s ace flyer. Although some little woman may eventually blast his first ambition sky high, his future years in the Service will verify the latter.

Zooming out of the clouds in his flam- ing Piper pursuit, is our realistic vision of Ace . . . but these gray walls have bound him down to only a student ' s license. McKenzie, mule metropolis of west Tennessee, proudly sent Ace off to begin his military career at Riverside Military Academy. As a staunch A. T. O. and a champion fencer he rode high at Vanderbilt, but his passion for med- icine was overshadowed by the call to arms. Marion Military Institute was the final stepping stone to a career on the sea. He is rapidly becoming an ex- pert swimmer because of his conscien- tious efforts on the sub-squad. Four days a week he can be found engrossed in a little siesta by the side of the pool. We picked him up at the end of young- ster year as a stray after he had lost his third roommate. His quick wit and cherry aye aye are as a ray of sunshine in our humble abode. Although his free time is at a premium, he invariably listens to the Metropolitan Opera each Saturday afternoon. Ol. SL, Altoona, Pa. Hard work and a tenacious nature finally landed Dave in the Academy. Even a jaunt to South Dakota did not make him falter on the thorny road to a salty career, and the railroad round- houses of Altoona just did not have what it takes to occupy a man of the world. He never missed a chance to tell those rebels who won the war, but we have lost count of the number of young ladies he has dragged that have that Southern accent. The middle of second class year found him as a stag for the first time at a hop. Dave has as much athletic gear as any man in the regiment to help keep that waistline trim. Track, football, and boxing make his year a full one. Dave has only two complaints : that of always finding his last cigarette miss- ing, and how fast his eyes are failing. Strangely enough though, each year he sees better, and never has any trouble focusing a pair of binoculars on the fair feminine visitors out of our spacious win- dows. Jackson, Tenn. Having been a savoir at Jackson High School, Jackson, Tennessee, Squire readily stepped into his College work at Union University. His early ambition to be a sailor prompted him to lay aside his preparations for another career and come North to the Naval Academy. From the start. Squire has always signed up for athletic gear in sports in order to have an outfit in which to undertake his own private system of workouts. Al- though he never afforded the Naval Academy a view of his prowess on the basketball court, it has been said that in high school he excelled as a good de- fense man. At any hop. Squire can be seen exhibiting his terpsichorean abil- ities, regardless of whether he is stagging or dragging. Tales of his earlier esca- pades never tire his listeners, as his sup- ply of them is interminable. Being a member of the Boat Club, he can com- bine his two hobbies, sailing and drag- ging, and in spite of an apparent disdain for the Navy, there is within him a burn- ing desire for the service.

ADOLPH CHANDLER KING DAVID CLINTON SINGER KLINE PAUL HILL MEDLING 272 JAMES RENVVICK THOMSON HARRY LANSING VINCENT TULLY SHELLEY, JR. Spokane, Wash. With a love of the service born of the Sea Scouts and Naval R. O. T. C. Tommy came, fresh from happy-go- lucky college days. At the University of Washington he was a Psi Epsilon mem- ber and a hurdler on the track team. Since his plcbe days at the Academy, Tommy has girded himself with the uni- form of almost every sport here ; how- ever, football and track have had tlie inside post in his athletic loves. Every Christmas Tommy vows to stay east and partake of the Atlantic type of Christmas cheer, but on the first day of leave the Pacific yearn floods his veins, and he wings his way through the bliz- zards to the snow-covered hills and un- conquerable wilds of Washington. From the fresh water lakes of Wash- ington to the salt water of the seven seas . . . the transition has not been an easy one, for the crystal pools of the Evergreen State still lure this native son . . . but the call of the sea has also found a place in this man ' s heart, and he has chosen the sea for his home. Syracuse, N. Y. A sailor indeed! Harry ' s love of sail- ing was the impetus that resulted in his coming to the Academy. When sailing dinghies, yawls, or the Vamarie, he is in his element. If he becomes prematurely wrinkled, it will be due not only to his perpetual smile, but also to the long hours he has spent sailing and squinting over the sparkling waves. He has al- ways laughed at anything approximat- ing humor and countered with a little addition of his own. Balanced with his love of fun is energetic industry. He is a firm believer in the old adage that if a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing well, and he never departs from the execution of this philosophy. However, his capacity for fun and work is dwarfed by his capacity for food. In spite of his small physical dimensions, he packs away enough of the Navy ' s chow to be a liability to any wardroom mess. His knowledge of the sea and his knowledge of men are credits, however, which far overbalance this sole debit. ' cj2j2y SJltMy C) , San Fr. ngisco, Calif. TuUy hails from the Sunny State of California, like many other Navy jun- iors hasn ' t seen much of his native land. This fact hasn ' t detracted from his love for home, however. Sincere endeavor to do the right thing is a trait that will stand TuUy in good stead for the rest of his life. Definitely not the cramming type, he still manages to come out on the good side of the 2.5 mark ; but to do this he must sacrifice a potentially versatile athletic career. As it is, the old man managed to find time to earn an N in soccer, dasli around the basketl)all court during the winter, and romp with tlu " huMosse squad in tlie spring. He is reaUy an authority on swing, his repertory of " jive " is voluminous. Another fact brings to iigiit his con- stant humor and al)ility to keep class- mates in a cheery mood. Proof of his capricious nature is the many fuiuiy stories and questionable jokes accepted by the Loo. His full life has no room for a dull moment. Track 4, j, 2; Battalion Football 2.

When Bob came to the Naval Acad- emy his rifle came with him. Being an old hand at hunting, he readily adopted himself to the rifle range. His ability as a marksman is shown by a glance at the record scores for both the small bore and outdoor rifle teams. You can find his name as a runner-up in the Naval Academy individual small bore rifle championship match and winner of the second class competition. At other times his shooting is done with a less dangerous weapon, the cam- era. His special interest is color pho- tography. Along the same artistic lines comes his active part in designing the Regimental Christmas Card. The Ketches must also be considered ; for many a week-end has found him afloat on the Chesapeake as an active Boat Club member. Other week-ends must be mentioned too ; for they are filled with escorting one of the most beautiful girls we ' ve seen.

Jack may have been a Green Moun- tain boy when he left Vermont, but you will look many a league along the Ches- apeake before you will find a saltier yachtsman today. Whether it ' s the Vamarie, or a yawl, or a dinghy, he likes nothing better than a sail on a breezy day with a long beat to windward and white water rolling over the rail. Yet Jack is the type who relegates all activ- ities to their proper places — fall, winter, and spring. Just as Easter time is the JOHN WALLACE GILPIN time for eggs and the time for eggs is Easter time, so too is dinghy time fall and spring — gym time, winter and aca- demic time all the time. He has a knack for throwing himself heartily into any job which should be done. " Industry " must be the watch- word. He is even tempered, good-na- tured, fair and square, and possesses plenty of that dry Yankee humor.

We don ' t know whether it was the foreign air of Canada in his youth or the mountain sunshine of California later that did the trick, but suffice to say, Al ' s a pretty fine specimen. Ex- cept for an occasional Morgan Hill Bugle, we hear little of California and the old home town. Maybe it ' s a small place or maybe it ' s just his philosophy to live for the present. Studies and marks don ' t bother him too much since he ' d rather get by and spend the excess time reading and figuring out the prac- tical side of things. Always either laugh- ing and carrying on a bull session or in one of his silent moods which express his displeasure usually at you, music, or irresponsible plebes, Al has developed an independence which along with his fine physique has made him one of those magazine " he-men.

When Buce left the hills of Seattle for what Uncle Sam had to offer, he did so whole-heartedly. That is his way. Never anything but sincere with all that concerns him, Bruce has a pleasant nature, that makes him a friend of all. After knowing him for awhile, we are quite sure of the intelligence which his modesty and serious application tend to hide. Never have we seen anyone who can set a goal and work so steadfastly to attain it. Gym made him " Suicide. " And when he does that half twist, we know why! Yes, gym is his love here, and to be an Intercollegiate Champion is not a bad reward. " Suicide " stars at the hops when he is not stagging or on a gym trip. We wonder sometimes what he is going to substitute for the parallel bars in the fleet, for we suspect the sea is in his blood. We hope it is, and here ' s luck to you, fellow, though you are not one to depend on it too much. Dallas, Tkxas C ' had, a quiet, good looking ' J ' cxan, is a lad with a wealth of practical sense.

Aggressive, dynamic, and forceful, " Blackie " seems to radiate energy and determination. Born another " native son " of California he did not allow that balmy climate to weaken his will to live life to the hilt. Although neither an Army nor Navy junior, he has lived on both coasts, in the middle of the conti- nent, and in a foreign land by virtue of his father ' s profession, engineering. " Blackie " allows himself no half-way measures. An ardent debater on any and all subjects, the strident tones of his voice are matched only by the sincerity of his convictions. At the Academy, water seems to be " Blackie ' s " favorite element. In the spring and fall he spends his time " beating to windward " with the sailing team and during the winter months he splashes to and fro in the tank with the swimming team. " Blackie " aspires to join the air corps. If his hopes are realized, the air corps will receive an energetic worker, a staunch supporter, and a cheerful, loyal friend.

Balboa, CVnal Zone After two years of college, Panama ' s most loyal supporter finally deserted the easy going life of the tropics for the high- tempoed routine of the Academy. But a late start was no handicap to our Bill. His easy going nature and conversa- tional eagerness would have made him a welcome addition to any group. So he quickly found his place. Naturally savvy, outstanding in Spanish, academ- ics gave him little trouble, and the lure of water soon made its appearance. Even the dismal winter cold that seeps into the natatorium was no deterrent to his varsity swimming. Spring and fall found him on the water again with a tiller in one hand and the main sheet in the other. Not the least of his joys has been dragging; an underlying serious- ness of purpose and ideals, however, belies his pose as an unconcerned native of the tropics. Out of the hills of Pan- ama came " Gomez the Bandit, " and out on the Seven Seas with the wind and the waves will he serve his life ' s sentence. TiTUSVILLE, Pa. n A slim powerful figure poised on the edge of the swimming pool waiting for the bark of the starter ' s gun . . . this is the picture of Hube that most of us will retain in our minds. Swimming has long held the pre-eminent position in Hube ' s extra-curricular activities and his efforts have been rewarded with noteworthy success. The allegorical phrase, " still waters run deepest, " is perhaps the most apt description of Hube. Reserved in manner and quiet in speech as he may appear to a casual acquaintance his warm-hearted spon- taneity and cheerfulness are well-known to his many friends. The finer things in life interest Hube. Extensive reading of good literature, coupled with an in- herent love of music, result in his having acquired an amazing store of cultural knowledge.

His enthusiasm is always positive, often contagious, his wealth of energy wearing down all o])]5osition. Of course there are varying degrees of en- thusiasm. He shows very little toward any suggestion that he refuse a .second helping in order to keep down his weight for boxing. But, should an occasion arise which calls for, or even allows for, a drag, his enthusiasm soars, and is topped only by his enthusiasm for sailing. His skill at the helm of a sailboat has resulted, not so much from long experience, as from his sheer will to learn. Sailing has become a part of him. The harder it blows, the better he hkes it. Even rain doesn ' t dampen his ardor. To be sure, he thrives on rain. When ashore, he en- joys long walks in the rain, claiming that such walks are conducive to deep thought. His class standing indicates that the practice may not be a bad one. Boat Club 3, 2, i; Sailing " N " j, 2; Bat- talion Boxing J, 2; Spanish Cluh; Vamarie Crew. ROBERT MAXWELL HILL TOM BOMAR MARTIN, JR. Wichita Falls, Texas When Tommy discovered that he couldn ' t have his siesta every afternoon, he went out for the rifle team, because he found that they did most of their shoot- ing in the prone position. By winning an " N " during his youngster year, he gave credence to the story of the jack- rabbits gathering at the station to assure themselves that Tommy was actually leaving Texas. Some of his camera shots are as spec- tacular as his " possibles " on the rifle range. His photographic eye became attracted to sailboats in action. He soon became an enthusiastic sailor. Every week-end in the fall and spring finds him aboard one of the yawls, and when not diligently tugging at a sheet, he is snap- ping pictures of white water or full sails. He doesn ' t drag often, but he is obvi- ously particular w hom he chooses when he does. Nothing seems to worry him very much ; he takes it all as a matter of course, though he has had his moment with the academic department.

It is hard to write about Bill because we must concentrate on one outstanding characteristic at the expense of many others. " Sailing " is the biggest word in his life. Ashore, in a crowd, he ' s a laughing, show stealing, fun-loving companion. He doesn ' t drag often, but when he does people look twice. During the winter, when the river is frozen over, he turns in a creditable performance on the wrestling mat. But until we tell about his sailing we don ' t begin to describe " Willie. " He loves it. He grew up with a tiller in one hand and a sheet in the other. To sail a race with him, to watch him give his heart, soul and ability to drive his boat a foot second faster, an inch closer ; to hear him coach his crew to near perfection, is a re elation. Sailing for fun is different, and he again be- comes his natural fun-I() ing self To Bill it all amounts to : a boat, a breeze, a laughing crew -a recipe for happiness.

Maryland came " Sherm " to lease his life to the sea, in- stead of pursuing a journalistic career as he had earlier planned. However, he has not neglected his writing ability — the English Department, his daily quota of letters, a diary, and Lucky Bag work have given him plenty of room to de- velop. A little homesick at first, Sherman de- voted himself to his studies and soon firmly established himself as one of the " savoirs " of the class. He was also a " Red Mike " at first, but Christmas leave, plebe year and September leave, youngster year, caused him to take an- other view of the subject. He spent half of his second class year convincing the Department of Physical Education that he was life-saver mate- rial. Having successfully cleared every hurdle that the Academy has offered, Sherman moves on to greener pastures.

Whether the scene be a milk route in Cisco, Texas, or the exam room in Maury Hall, Enders has the throttles gunned wide open, ready to deliver the goods. " Ya just wouldn ' t a guessed it, " you say when you draw the priceless gems of Enders ' pre -Academy days from lips ret- icent to divulge personal information. The " big ole " home back in Texas, the odd-and-end jobs Phil held at one time or another, the care-free college days, and the pretty Southern girls who al- ways spiced up life — those memories are stowed neatly in the innermost crevices of his mind ; and it is only seldom that the doors are unlocked for the public ' s observation. But like the jewels of a book that cannot be lost, so, too, these individualistics affect Enders ' character and mold the finished product whom we have seen every day these past four years marching to class beside us.

Tlic first day the Academy threw wide its pearly gates to welcome 41, Little Caesar, having traveled the thirty weary miles from Washington, threw off the yoke of civilian suppression and cockily crossed the Rubicon, burning the bridge behind him — and since that memorable June day, Johnny has been boldly burn- ing each bridge over which he had passed, ofttimcs pausing to burn others he had not yet crossed, then striking ofT on a sometimes disastrous detour, still JOHN SINCLAIR LEIDEL facing the future and forever closing the past from his thoughts. Maybe it is that Johnny ' s overburdened senses cannot hold past, present, and future all at the same moment — or maybe it ' s as he says, " what ' s the use? " Frolicsome June Weeks and the abil- ity to launch several queens into Acad- emy social life mark Junior as a dy- namic social builder ; for the bridge of society is the only one which has es- caped the incendiary tendencies of the mightiest of the little men.

" Bringing his easy-going Western ideas to the Naval Academy, via the Navy, Joe believed that 2.51 was too much and 2.4.9 was too little. A four- year battle with the academic depart- ment, and the countless times he proved his point, showed that Joe was a fighter. Though Joe had never seen a soccer ball before he came to the Academy, he soon became an interested and val- uable member of the team. His success can be measured by the fact that he became the team captain. His constant batUes against his two roommates for open windows and fresh air kept him in condition. To Joe there are two types of girls — the one in Baltimore and all the rest. An empty second period blotter will al- ways make him ask who hid her letter. One of Joe ' s greatest achievements is the ability to miss with the " makings " when he rolls his own on your side of the room. Soccer 4, j, 2, Captain i; Soccer N ; Boat Club 2, I.

Picture a lean easy going Virginian whose hands are equally skillful at milk- ing a cow or working a slide rule. That, in brief, is Tommy. Tommy left the farm to study in a prep school for the Naval Academy. He learned enough there to make him a plebe. Since then his greatest enjoy- ment has been the solving of problems, playing tennis, and joining in bull ses- sions. His next enjoyment is dragging. He has never been a piker. Dragging to every hop he can afford. Tommy us- ually plays the role of the stag when the monthly insult has run the gauntlet. Sometimes he bewilders his drags with his harshness, but more frequently he enchants them with a line. Tommy be- lieves himself to be a bigger hindrance than help when others ask his advice on math or social problems. Regardless of what he thinks he does it well for they almost always come back with new problems for him to solve. 5 YONKERS, N. Y. ' Tuzzy " began his naval career via the hard way — enlistment. We think it was here that he acquired that cer- tain savoir faire. Definitely not behind the door when argumentative ability was passed out, however, he can take the weaker side of any argument, give you even odds, and win hands down on a technicality. Not the least of his abilities is his knack at analyzing handwriting. We really didn ' t know our O. A. O. ' s until we furnished " Fuzzy " with samples of her handwriting and discovered things that even she is unaware of A slight run in with the Academic Department at the beginning of his Academy career taught him to better his natural ability, and since then he ' s gone upward. In athletics, he plays a fair game of tennis, fences well, bowls strikes and spares with his eyes shut ; but water is absolutely out of his element as any regular member of the sub-squad can testify. Seattle, Was A thorough understanding of Arch would have to comprise an appreciation of both professional and cultural sub- jects. Intensely alive, his nimble mind is equally adept at rendering the latest songs of the radio or giving the ord- nance prof a convincing argument. As a roommate it would be sacrilege to notice his absentmindedness. Remem- ber the math class you spent browsing in the Mid ' n Store, Arch, quite oblivious that the rest of us were chalking probs on boards over at Maury Hall? Fully compensating for this forgetfulness is Arch ' s ability to prevent any conversa- tion from lapsing into the dull side with either the femmes or the fellows. We have given up trying to convince him that there is a substitute for the beaming sunshine of the West Coast anywhere. Those who don ' t know him might be led to think at times that Arch is a wee bit too " Navy. " But underneath it all we sense his true feelings.

ARCHIE PARMELEE KELLEY 280 FREDERICK JOSEPH RUDER GEORGE GILL BALL JAY CRITTEXDEX MOSS Xyiec i i c c Columbus, Ohio In 1935 Columbus sent another son to travel the road to the Academy and the sea. The call of the Academy was not the result of an appointment on a silver platter, but a heart-felt desire that was answered by enlistment and two years of hard work. As a roommate, friend, and compan- ion, Rudy is hard to beat. His disgust for arguments has helped to prevent many from becoming free for alls. An artist at making friends, Fred is noted for his pleasing smile and friendly salu- tations. Rudy is a firm believer in week-ends. During the week he doesn ' t mind working hard, but if a week-end comes without a drag on hand or a ketch trip planned, Rudy is not con- tent. Ketching has been his substitute for sea life. Soon after entering he be- came interested in the ketches and since has shown his ability as a ketch skipper. Though service life is not all pleasure, Rudy ' s ability to accept, with a smile, anything that comes his way makes him well fitted for this. . tyU-4 San Antonio, Texas Calm cool, collected, and composed — it ain ' t no cucumber that confronts you, brother, but the most imperturbable bit of protoplasm you ' ve ever seen. We ' re not implying that he ' s allergic to women . . . nor they to him, but for all of that George is a real man ' s man. He has al- ways been a veritable mcssiah of good will to all of more than a nodding ac- quaintance. Perhaps it is his fairness ; perhaps, his open mind ; perhaps, the combination of an unassuming and an unruffled outlook — but whatever the ex- planation we are quite willing to ac- cept that George is George . . . just as a spade is a spade. George ' s first shower when he has re- membered to bring both soap and towel is yet to come. And then there ' s the inev- itable threat that accompanies an un- ventilated room : " Hey! My claustro- phobia! " With our limited vocabulary, we arc at a disadvantage from the begin- ning. So we open the windows. And again the impersonal process of freezing is painfully begun. Long Bkach, C ai.if. Jay received the nickname, " Honest George, " along with many others, when a plebe and it seems that it will follow him always. Lest the sobriety some- times associated witli Jay be predomi- nant, let it be said that he has been the proponent of countless jokes on his class- mates which often have boomeranged in spectacular fashion. Pursuing his academics and searching for an O. A. O. to end all O. A. O. ' s, he has not yet " starred " in either but just as surely as the old battle cry, " It ' s gonna be different next time, " rings after every exam week, he is certain to have his steadfastness of purpose rewarded. All of which shows that Jay never gi es u|) the ship. Few are the arguments he has lost, as can be testified by his hecklers. He always closes with the punch line, " Aw, that ' s just your defense ineciian- ism! " But no matter how hard the knocks which may come his way, one can al- ways find a gleam in his eye, a ready " crack " on his tongue, and plenty ol vim, vigor, and i talily.

Turning his back to the prospects of a career in electrical engineering, Don en- tered the naval profession to satisfy his boyhood yearning for the sea. How- ever, since a dinghy sank beneath him, leaving our hero stranded in the Severn ' s icy waters, and the Claxton showed this Kansan the difference between the roll- ing of the Atlantic and the western plains, Don has regarded water-borne craft with a cautious eye. After strug- gling two years with the Athletic De- partment to become proficient in the art of swimming, Don began to carry the torch for the Medical Department. Dur- ing recreation hours he may usually be found taking a workout in the gym ; nev- ertheless, his interest in sailing, radio, and aviation often divert his athletic en- deavors. Don possesses a remarkable amount of poise and a calm manner which always acts as a stabilizer on his associates and helps him immeasurably in the solution of many knotty problems. His thoughtfulness, fine sense of humor, serenity, and vigorousness have made him an excellent roommate and will serve him well in the future. ♦ DONALD ALBIN READER Pasadena, Calif. " Nick " came to the Naval Academy with the same idea in mind that all of us had — that of giving his best and hoping to reach the top. He realized his ambi- tion through the combination of gray matter, hard work, and that ever-looked- for trait, common sense. His ability to take it on the chin and come back to even greater successes has been proved more than once in his encounters with the Medical Department. Nothing pleases him more than a smartly rigged WILLIAM MAC NICHOLSON sailboat and a spanking breeze ; and many a recreation hour in spring, sum- mer or fall were spent on the Severn and the Chesapeake. You see, those quali- ties which placed Nick at the top of his class, plus his eagerness to lend a helping hand at all times and under all circum- stances to anyone needing a little excel- lent counsel, have also placed him first in our esteem and respect, and have garnered for him the respect and affec- tion of his classmates. VINCENT URIEL MUIRHEAD Norton, Kans. Ask any D. O., " Who is the easiest man in the regiment to find? " and the answer will be, " Vince, the boy avia- tor " — traceable by the penetrating odor of banana oil. When he ' s at work the whole deck knows it, and very often the whole deck comes to see what his latest project is. Vince came to us from an engineering school in Kansas and the ideas he had there have not changed one bit in his four-year association with the Naval Academy. Design ' em, build ' em, and fly ' em ; these three things cover the ap- parent ambitions of our western boy. His friends have watched his models grow from fragile little things of paper and balsa, to a room-filled giant pow- ered by a pair of tiny gasoline motors. To this hobby, he has been faithful, let- ting only sub squad activities interfere with his work. Yet this bonny Scotsman has a totally unpredictable wit for all his persever- ance ; these two qualities which have made him the finest of roommates, as- sure him success in future associations.

When Jim left Marble, Colorado, he bade adieu to two years of education as a teacher, and a job in the Marble Rock Quarry. This background, and his Irish wit, have served him well. However, his home in the Rockies was hardly condu- cive to an acquaintance with the sea, and in Maryland he has felt lost without his mountains and trout streams — he felt lost until the Decatur left New York on the destroyer cruise, when he discovered some mountains in the old Atlantic Ocean. " Mac " has a batting average on the diamond to be proud of and an average for blind dragging that his less fortunate classmates can envy. We ' d all like to find out how he does it, but even if we can ' t put our fingers on the ciuali- lies that make for Jim ' s successes, and since they say men are born with these qualities, we ' ll just have to step aside and fill the bleachers while the world throws her little obstacles across the plate and Jim parks them over the fence.

His need for organized recreation caused liim to turn his atten- tion to crew, where his lanky form could he used to excellent advantage. This sport was to become one of his foremost interests at the Academy. Early spring, blistered hands, and a close shaved head arc as one to Gus each year. A few scrapes with the Academic Department did not deter him from the pursuit of his GUY ARTHUR LUCIAN -ui ( - : jayiyi ' i ' J ambition. Next to his crew, Gus loves his dragging best of all. Whenever he has a week-end free, he is to be found dragging some comely lass. This fun- loving fellow can be as serious as needs be when the occasion arises. He has that natural grasp of situations that is inherent in too few persons. He needs relatively little daily preparation in his studies, but that little is thoroughly and conscientiously done. " Knobby " al- ways finds time to " bone " Cosmo, and to send out a never-ending stream of let- ters, and he always receives almost as many in return. l)i rkori, Mm II. iss llic (Icsscit, plcascl " G •oit c londcsl (icsiic is to satisfy his a|)|)(iiic in- dulging in food lii( ii liis niotlu r sends him (|uitc fVe(|ueiitly or fioni most any oilier source.

George is conscientious and ambitious, and takes his aeadeiuies very seriously. He is not an honor student, but if grades were awarded on effort, he would be deserving of the best. George is not one of the .Academy ' s famed " Red-Mikes, " although his drag- ging escapades are usually spasmodic.

From the University of Virginia ' s country club life to Navy discipline is a long hard step, but " Duke " did it no- bly — though he still claims to be a gen- tleman of leisure. His easy-going nature backs up his claim very nicely. A never ceasing source of wonder is his ability to get so much mail with so little effort on his part. The letters he does write must have that certain some- thing. He claims to be a thorough " Red Mike, " but the hops he misses are few and far between, and his numerous drags are not the worst. The number of pictures on his locker door are enough to awe the sternest D. O. In his leisure moments, he dabbles in fencing, figures out " losers " in bridge hands, and snows us under with stories of his adventures on leave. A minor accomplishment of " Duke ' s " is being able to uphold either side of an argu- ment with equal skill. His willingness to meet one more than half way makes him an excellent friend and " wife. " NEIL ALLAN MacKINNON Thornwood, N. Y. We were somewhat amazed at first when Mac seemed to take in everything that came along without any evident ef- fort, but we have come to accept this ease of accomplishment as an integral part of his makeup. Mac has only two worries in the world : one is that he is losing his hair rather rapidly, and the other is that he is contracting insomnia. He has no worries about dragging, for he is a " Red Mike " beyond compare, and he stands in the upper fourth of his class without contemplating the idea of studying. The rather dubious supply of excess energy exhibited on occasion by Mac makes him an exceptionally good bridge hand. Mac has been in the gym and the pool exactly three times since plebe summer — each time to pass a test. By this platform, we nominate him for the presidency of the radiator club. Imbued with a marvelous sense of hu- mor as well as a commanding presence in the face of argument, Mac can, and does, hold his end of any discussion. Louisville, Ky. He brought the ability to speak Span- ish fluently ... he brought the flavor of distant places from an early boyhood in Mexico ... he brought the charm of the South from a later boyhood in Ken- tucky. Add to these an intense, earnest interest in everything he does and you have George in a nutshell. If we want to know a lesson assign- ment, what the latest order said, or what time the boxing matches start, we ask George. He always knows the " dope, " good or bad. Short in stature, he will go down in history as the formulator of the principle that a woman ' s beauty va- ries inversely as her height. He keeps us all happy with his cheerful flow of gos- sip and small talk. George ' s biggest trouble has been mathematics. Of ten math exams, he has failed ten — but when the final reck- onings have been made, George has al- ways been sat.

Four years at ihc University of Wy- oming and then the Naval Academy — it is something we could not understand. However, he hasn ' t seemed to miss the rangcland. His Christmas leaves have been spent in the company of the fairer sex, with the atmosphere of Pennsyl- vania preferred. Plebc year saw him doing the inevit- able. He dragged blind and fell in love. It took a year and a half of advice, ca- joling, and brow-beating to get him out of that. Since then he has carefully steered shy, but his presence at the hops has been assured by his election to the Hop Committee. " Speed ' s " bridge and golf arc among the best, and aside from being one of the class " savoirs, " he is a mighty fine fellow. His stories and jokes aren ' t too bad. For that reason he always makes the party more enjoyable. His spirited good nature and keen sense of humor have helped preserve the peace on many occasions. " Speed " is a valuable friend and, as a roommate, he is one of the best. Movie Gang 4, j, 2, i; Hop Committee 2; Golf 4, 3, 2; Makeup Gang 4, 3, 2. WALTER D. GADDLS GEORGE CORNELIUS BALL, JR.

Somehow we think of him as intimately associated with the roar of guns and the sound of rippling water. The guns, however, are not of major caliber or even Springfield Rifles but a double barreled shotgun blazing away at a covey of quail. And that rippling water is that of a stream in the Ozarks with a shady spot for fishing. From such a placid atmosphere Jerry stepped into the high-geared life of the Naval Acad- emy and, instead of adapting himself to the Navy, successfully adapted the Navy to himself, retaining all of the traits de- veloped by his native middle west. To turn his long Western stride to a good purpose, he chose track as his sport. This same stride has carried Jerry a long way toward success in " faithfully dis- charging the duties of the office which I swear to uphold. " CHARLES GR. Y STRUM o syC tt . Jacksonville, Fla. Not even the big winter back in ' 40 could faze this son of Florida ; nor does he let anything else interfere with his enjoyment of life or his having a good time. And if he put half the time spent answering the letters of one or more of the snare and delusion gender into aca- demics, he would raise a considerable cloud of dust in the section rooms. In other words, he has less than the usual amount of trouble with books and wom- en.

This is the lad whom we can so easily visualize lying on his stomach and coo- ing in his cradle, because he ' s such a cute little fellow now. All his cradle tactics were learned in Baltimore, but when this phase of his education was completed, he migrated to Washington. Rollo ' s early dreams were the same as Charlie Keller ' s, but Keller learned to hit. When visions of a professional baseball career faded, the poor boy was lost. In a moment of uncertainty, he en- tered the Naval Academy Prep. While at BuUis, on nights that offered little en- tertainment, RoUo learned enough to meet the entrance requirements of the Academy. We know the Rol as the one who, after a particularly " Blue Monday " (those let-downs to reality after a week- end with Lucy) can always be heard to exclaim, " Well boys, they can ' t kill me in five more days!

Driven by hardships and struggles in his attempt to get a college education, he brought with him the will to learn the hows and whys of everything. His afternoons for the past three years have been devoted to his struggle to master the art of swim- ming. He is not a woman hater, but it was not until his last year here that a woman was able to conciuer him. Dave is a man with perseverance, a fine sense of humor, and an optimistic personality. His greatest thrill during his stay here has been attained in sailing. For a landlubber, he sure has acquired a love for the art of sailing, showing his skill not as a coxswain, but as a setter of sails. Most of his success along the academic lines has been due to his power of concentration. His agreeable nature and willingness to reason have made him an ideal roommate and companion.

The pohshing process that he has undergone while here has made him a bright beacon on a sometimes dark horizon. Many, on first acquaintance, think that he was labeled for St. Eliza- beth ' s, but instead was mistakenly de- livered here. Yet those who know him better find that it is his spirit of exuber- ance which makes him appear crazy. Tom fooled the people who thought that he would become a great athlete. He decided that he would devote his time to broadening himself socially and academically rather than listening to the pleas of the coaches. On the side though, he keeps busy playing golf, ten- nis, sailing, or strumming on his guitar. Tom is a ladies man if we ever saw one. Tall, blonde, and statuesque, with a flashing smile and ready wit, he is the power that keeps several feminine hearts beating. The leading contender at present is ahead by two cakes. All in all, our boy Tom is a regular guy — to all a welcomed shipmate. Oi L. QJhrjuULr Buffalo, N. Y. " Women are a snare and a delusion. " That is Bob ' s pet phrase, but he doesn ' t take much stock in his own philosophy ; he drags whenever he can ' t organize a bridge game for the week-end. There ' s only one thing that Bob would rather do than eat, and that ' s play bridge. For diversion, from bridge, he plays a wick- ed game of chess and, during the spring, pounds the cinder track and swings around the golf course. He starred during Plebe Year with- out any trouble ; many of his study hours helping out his " wives " and classmates who don ' t have such an easy time with academics as he. Bob ' s character is well rounded. He ' s likable, has a keen sense of humor, and is academically brilliant ; his mind is al- ways open to new ideas — the kind of mind that ' s always eager to learn. The Navy is going to have a fine officer in Bob ; he ' ll make many friends with those above and below him wherever he goes in the Service ; and we expect to see him go far. y ' .sm a z Ho Denver, Colo. Milt came to the Academy from the " Mile High City of the West " with high hopes of becoming an Admiral in short order. A dark haired lad possessing a marked versatility, he found it easy to overcome the difficulties of academic life and readily adjusted himself to the long grind. He is an enthusiastic sup- porter of sports and is always ready to lend a willing hand in their advance- ment. In his leisure time, Milt is an ardent participant in tennis, lacrosse, and sailing. He is perpetually prepared for an argument and is invariably cor- rect. Not being a " savoir " he had to work diligently, but was always quite amply rewarded. Milt is no farmer when it comes to ingenuity either. His many contrivances rival those of Rube Goldberg and need only a reversal of the laws of nature to make them work. Milt has ability, inspiration, character, and the will to succeed, plus an over- abundant storehouse of money-making ideas. He likes the Navy ; it will like him.

MILTON JOSEPH SILVERMAN 288 ROSS BERTRAND SPENCER RALPH STEWART CHANDLER CLAIRE CORNWELL POOLE I n. . OlcuAju e. Po A Salt Lake City, Utah If it ' s a deep bass voice sounding off near you, whether it be in the ward- room of a " tin can " or on a gunboat out in China — before you turn you ' ll know it ' s " Spence " upholding his point with the conviction of real authority. His friends will always recall him as a tall, ambling son of the West, best re- membered for that infectious smile and pleasant humor, and the enjoyment he derives in a discussion, showing his friends the fallacy in their argument — " spilling the wind from their sails. " " Doc " began his formal education at the University of Utah after several months of military school. A few short days converted him from a college lad to a true follower of the sea, even find- ing him hard at work on the business end of an oar where he found many hours of enjoyment and constructive recreation. An enthusiasm for the outdoors often found " Spence " at the helm of a small boat or ketch, and our prediction is that someday he ' ll be listed with 41 ' s " big ship " skippers. Chattanooga, Tenn. Four long years ago, from the sunny Southern state of Tennessee, came a true Southern lad to embark upon his career of becoming a Naval officer. The few college years before his entrance saved him many a headache along the academic line. He still wears no stars and boasts no N ' s for his Southern tem- perament exacts of him nothing that smacks of labor. Athletic activities arc lacking except for an occasional strug- gle with the rope climb and a dash around the track in an attempt to con- vince Henry Ortland that the boys from Tennessee weren ' t meant to be amphib- ians. Like all true rebels, he has loved and lost! Ah! and loved again! He has been a consistent member of the well known fiying squadron for four years. Slim is a jolly, happy-go-lucky sort and because of this, he has been the butt of many a joke. There ' s never a dull moment when he ' s around. Hap- py ' s good fellowship and amiable dis- position have made him an ideal com- rade for our four years at the Academy. Bennett, Colo. He can tell you all about ranches and cows, but that ' s not all he knows. Play a game of bridge with him, talk to him, just be with him, and you realize how varied his interests are. You might ha e to study him for months at a time for he is hard to fathom but sooner or later you realize what kind of a fellow this Salty is. Aside from his capabilities as a student of technology (not literature), he enjoys life and sees the responsibil- ities as well as privileges that friendship has to offer. He is easy to please, loves to read the latest Cosmo, but is not what one might call a prom trotter. He gets his exercise on his bunk, in the gym, and in Mr. Ortland ' s class for be- ginners where he stars. He has swept out tlie room for three years (a record for any midshipman) and has done ev- erything else to make life pleasant lor others. Studies are a secondary issue with CHarabellc -he was never meant to be a cutthroat; it isn ' t in him. He just rocks along with the I reeze, leading a life of ease. Crew 4, 3, 2, I. Baseball 4, j. 289 Chicago, III. Early graduation enabled Wayne to graduate from an institution of higher learning in the short period of six and one-half years rather than the seven years which June Week would have end- ed. The first attempt was in engineer- ing at the University of Iowa. Then an old ambition was realized and he obtained an appointment to West Point, but a twist of fate sent him to the Naval Academy instead of " Hell on the Hud- son. " Thereby the engineer from Iowa and Chicago became a midshipman. Such a change was not hard for him, for he has the capacity of adapting him- self to whatever may occur, but when it comes to forgetting those days as an embryonic engineer, that ' s another mat- ter. He has a burning desire to create massive projects, to execute with mi- nute care to detail any assigned task — to get " well done " for his efforts. It ' s mighty hard to stop a man like that, but it ' s mighty easy to remember him for that clean cut, natural simplicity of character by which we all know him.

WAYNE HOOF El Paso, Texas Dick combines the qualities typical of the South and West, yet he does not lack that individuality which gives him a personal appeal all his own. Though his education was in preparation for a career in law, he has successfully di- verted this liberal background to the more technical requirements of the Navy. In moments of recreation he has become well adapted to a new way of living, so that he feels equally at home in a boat or on horseback. He prefers DICK HENRY GUINN a wide field of activities, social, athletic, and academic, rather than specializa- tion — and he receives benefit from all these pursuits, because he seeks personal satisfaction rather than an eflfect pro- duced on others. What he misses most is the desert — sunshine and dry air — next to that, he would enjoy spare time in which to read good books. A sound mind in a sound body, adaptability, and a knack of handling any situation grace- fully — these are his inherent qualities. Combined with a sense of humor, these should sail him safely across the rough- est sea. Lacrosse 4,3, 2, i; Press Gang 2, 2, i; Choir 4, 3, 2, i; Musical Club 4, j. CHARLES WESLEY RUSH, II Dothan, Ala. Versatile is the word for this suave gentleman from the " Deep South, " for Charlie has the inherent ability to do well anything he attempts. His pri- mary interest is sailing. The Vamarie and the yawls have found him a com- petent seaman, while those who have sailed with him sense the deep pleasure a boiling wake gives him. This love of the sea, coupled with the romantic tinge of the South, has given him a wanderlust held in check for the last four years, but intensified rather than diminished dur- ing that interval. The only thing strong enough to anchor him is a little brunette. Literature has provided an outlet for the cravings of his spirit, and his many athletic pursuits have replaced the activ- ity of an outdoor life ; but Charlie enjoys a " siesta " as only a Southerner can. His vivid imagination is often used to construct day dreams that remove him from the realities of routine, and this, combined with his other characteristics, prove him to be intensely alive and pos- sessing an enviable capacity to enjoy living.

A red headed man with a personality to fit his physique ... a light Southern drawl and ever present smile . . . this is John Kirk. His vast number of friends both at the Academy and at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, where he was a medical student, have put the seal of approval upon John ' s happy-go-lucky personality. His scholastic record testi- fies to his capacity for hard work. Although his looks belie it, his tennis ability is of varsity caliber and his capac- ity for work both mental and physical is of a high standard. His unmistakable tendency to relaxation has asserted itself in that Johnny tends to conserve his efforts in his constant pursuit of work and happiness. Saturday night is defi- nitely not a period of relaxation, how- ever, for he attends every hop. His manner of telling you that you are wrong earns your respect and car- ries with it a feeling of his sincerity, a characteristic which tells more of this genial fellow than any written words.

The first impression most people have of f2d is a mental image of him vigor- ously insisting that they cat some of his chow. It is much more than just a taste of food, though, for with it comes a good hour ' s entertainment of laughs and jokes. Ed is effervescent, always bubbling over with joy. Once get him started on his stories of native life in Pennsylvania, colored with a typical Dutch accent, and you will never want to leave. EDWARD GEORGE MILLER There is much more to Ed than a good time, though — he ' s the kind who wears well. The longer you know him the better you like him. Talk seriously with him and you ' ll soon find that he has both ideas and ambition. He ' s bound to be happy in life, for he pays dividends to his friends. In return for a little friendship he ' ll give you a double payment in pleasure. If you don ' t know Ed, then you ' d better get acquainted with his pep, fun, and enthusiasm. Drop in some night on " Edt " and the " kits " and he ' ll tell you, " Veil, I ' m satisfied. " Track 4; Choi) 4, 3, 2, i. 291 J.

I lis real name is Roland, but around the Academy, " Dutcliy " serves the purpose. His mission in life seems to be either to laugh or to make some- one else laugh. In sj)ite of his lightlicailcd altitude, Dutchy takes the avy very seriously. He actually cares mf)re for his job than many men who pretend to be very seri- ous about it. The only lime he has ever worried was when Tecumseh threw the axe at him while he was taking " Young- ster " math. I ' he axe missed so here he is — still happy. What a storm his room is usually in! Chow, jokes, radio, and people all going strong. He intends to charge admission from now on because the room is such a circus. He will be like that all his life! Will he ever settle down? Vell, yes, it could be called that. He ' ll have a home and family, but if the kids are like the " old man, " the house will never settle down.

ROLAND JOHN SPRITZEN HEBER JENKINS BADGER Salt Lake City, Utah With three of his brothers here before him, " Badge " entered the Academy to uphold a family tradition. However, he got his real inspiration from the nau- tical atmosphere of his home on the shores of the Great Salt Lake. Two years at the University of Utah taught him all the advantages of co-edu- cation ; but the work there has helped him keep a jump ahead of the academic departments. He finds enough time for sports, and every season finds him busy with something. He has no N ' s to his credit, but not because of lack of effort. Coming from a large family, Badge is naturally easy to get along with. His friendly nature makes the plebes flock to him for protection. He aspires to be- come another Browning, and has given up sleeping through many steam drills for writing poetry, but there ' s no future in sight for him as a poet. We like to remember him as the cute plebe flower boy for the color girl back in ' 38. Football 4; Lacrosse 4, 2. JOHN MERRICK BURNHAM Lincoln, Nebr. John entered the Naval Academy the hard way — through the fleet ; however, knowledge gained at an electrical school in San Diego has held the Juice Depart- ment in check. Plebe year was a strug- gle, but since each exam puts him a few numbers higher. Letters may go un- read for weeks but exam marks must be read while the ink is still wet. Diligence and a faculty for being right have given him a winning combination. Why do women flock around him? Perhaps it ' s his " peaches and cream " complexion or maybe it ' s that wave in his hair. Or — more likely — it ' s because of the personality that has won him so many friends. Next to a good workout, making phone calls is his favorite diversion. He has been the main support of the Bell Telephone Company during his four years here. Favorite topic of conversa- tion : " The system and why it can ' t be beaten, " with concrete examples from real life. Favorite expression : " Oh, all right, just one hand of bridge, and then I ' ve gotta study. " Battalion Track 2. Beecher City, III. Cass came from Illinois, by way of the U. S. S. Pennsylvania. He has an un- canny knack of taking life just as it comes and rarely has anyone ever seen him ex- cited or in a great hurry. The " Dago " department held temporary terrors for Cass plebe year, but even this did not upset his composure. With his typical statement " They can ' t bilge me, " he came through as we expected. Sleep- ing has always held its attractions for Cass, but not when other recreation, such as a hop, is available. He has never lacked for drags ; in fact one after- noon a major calamity was narrowly averted when two of the fairer sex paid him a visit at the same time. Cass smokes more matches per cigarette than any man in the Academy, but he cannot be considered " Scotch " as his pack of Camels is always open to his friends. Few of his classmates know him as Reber but the name Cass will always remind us of the personality and cheerful atti- tude that has made our four years with him so pleasant. Boxing 4.

Somcliow the call of the sea drifted into Grapcland and brought him to the Academy. That he took to the new life, wc h ave no doubts. Of course he has had his moments of homesickness, but he has the knack of shaking it off by sticking his head out in the corridor bellowing like a Texas steer, " What ' s the uniform for next period? " In academics he has been one of the near greats without any trouble. Dur- ing the day he always finds time to in- dulge in practical jokes, taking or giving a good rib equally well. Plebe year all was quiet, but at his youngster debut he blossomed out and since seems most natural with a feminine companion. Maybe the expert rifle medal he wears has something to do with it. His only worry is a receding hair line. Maybe he will be able to stem the ebb tide, but if he doesn ' t, we will enjoy going bald with him.

Clay hails from Missouri, and true to form, he must be shown to be thoroughly convinced. One must be careful, how- ever, not to classify such a state of mind as one of obstinacy, for knowing Clay will soon make it apparent that this characteristic is the natural result of a conscientious desire for exact correct- ness. In addition, his sincere interest and his appreciation of other ' s capabil- ities make him an ideal companion in bolli work and play. When C ' lay finally decided to come to the Academy it was after a )ear of col- lege life. He left a lot of friends behind him, but his sunny disposition, good sense of humor, and ever present grin have won for him twice as many. He has taken no end of ribbing about his short stature, but nevertheless, this short stature has not seriously hindered his try for athletic fame. With the greatest of case he made the wresiling team on his first attempt and in all probability he will win man - more matches before his career is completed. POWELL PRESTRIDGE AIL, JR. Wrestling Varsity 2, i; Christmas Card Committee. 293 Xeivman Club; Hammond, La. Pete is one of those Southerners who lives up to the distinction of being a true rebel. He comes from down Lou- isiana way, which is readily apparent when you hear his Southern drawl. He has built up quite a reputation for his ability to always have a beautiful drag, and few are the hops that he misses. Pete ' s most outstanding characteristic is his frankness of opinion. He is always coming out with some wise comment which is to the point and usually filled with additional touches of irony and subtle humor. He is fond of all types of athletics, but his greatest interest is baseball. In the spring, Pete can always be found out on first base keeping up with the best of them and banging out his share of hits. His life ' s ambition is to be a ilyer. Pete believes that flying will give him the feeling of personal accomplishment and individuality which forms a major part of his personality, tlerlainly no one could be better suited than lie to take up such a noteworthy career. Baseball . , j ' , - ' ; Conipanj I ' islnL MELVIN HAROLD WARNER GEORGE H. NOLTE . t : — Ang .oi tT Plainfield, N. J. A man ' s wealth is estimated by the number of his friends, and by these standards, Mel Warner is a wealthy man. His cheerfulness and carefree at- titude make him liked by all who meet him. But beneath this carefree surface lies a deep determination to have his job " well done. " Almost as transient as a navy junior, Ned has lived in Missouri, Kansas, Illi- nois, and New York, and finally he has come to rest in New Jersey, the state he now calls home. From high school, he pursued a more stable career by prep- ping at Severn for the U. S. N. A. Here at the Naval Academy, Mel ap- plies himself to the task at hand, sub- duing the system. Still he finds time to pursue his favorite extra-curricula activities, namely : swimming, Rifle Team, and sailing. But the above are not his only avocations — go to any hop, formal or informal, good or bad, day or night, at home or abroad, and you ' re sure to meet Mel — guess why? Brooklyn, N. Y. Often times, the arbiter in our feud- ing congregation was our tall, blonde representative, aflfectionately referred to as " Wacky. " George has been a mem- ber of the intelligentsia. Our problems have been his and have therefore been assured of successful solution. His am- bitions are but temporary for the sim- ple reason that they are energetically pursued and soon realized. One of his more lasting ambitions, however, con- cerns the age-old subject of bridge. He doesn ' t wish to be a " second Culbert- son, " but rather a " first Nolte! " At this point, it would seem that George has missed his calling ; however, there was a psychological contrast be- tween life on board and ashore that at- tracted him — that ' s the mark of a Navy- man. Aside from the sea, you will find that George has other haunts. For in- stance, should you chance upon New York City and thereabouts, try the Ger- man-American. Wilmington, N. C. The fact that he is the only Rebel in a room full of Yankees doesn ' t seem to have affected this " Tar Heel " from Wil- mington, N. C. His quiet easy going manner makes unpleasant situations im- possible. This, combined with the prop- er amount of studiousness, makes him excellently equipped for his chosen ca- reer. His leisure hours may be few and far between, but they are used to fullest advantage. His favorite activ- ities are camping and boating, but he is EDWARD CORBETT HINES, JR. equally at home in the social world. He can always be found at dances or parties while home on leave. Ned may not belong to the " savviest of the savvies, " but one thing is certain ; he will be striving constantly. On Grad- uation Day, he will look back upon a difficult task well done, and he can look forward to the second stage in the real- ization of an ambition held since his high school days ; to become a good naval officer.

J. The first time you meet Gale, you ' ll realize that he has a well defined char- acter built around a core of determina- tion. By determination, we mean that if there is anything he desires, he gets it — or else! Nevertheless, he didn ' t earn the nickname " Happy " by being the meanest man in town! On the con- trary, he radiates mischief and happi- ness. Sometimes his happiness is audi- ble from one end of the corridor to the other. GALE SEAVER FELTON yz. fy . His powers of concentration result from his Jersey rearing. He taught himself to concentrate by reading Mil- ton in the sunlight without slapping at even one mosquito. With this tremen- dous power of concentration, he can study two lessons and read a story in Cosmo while we struggle through one lesson. Seriously speaking, Gale has a crust of that rough and ready Merchant Ma- rine salt which is a good foundation for his chosen career. After his service in the Merchant Marine, he went to Bullis Prep School where they told him he ' d never be a Middie. Well, he ' s our room- mate now!

He is red-lieaded and has that ruddy complexion of a true Scotch- man, which possibly accounts for his nickname " Pinky. " Burns can ' t be called a savoir, but he did enough book pounding to stand well up in the first half. Women were the least of Pinky ' s worries, but he never turned up at a hop with a brick and he had some 4.0 pictures on his locker door. Wielding a foil for Navy ' s fencing team was Pinky ' s favorite sport, and judging from his collection of medals, he could really push a pin. Burns was a militarist, and strange as it may seem, he actually enjoyed toting a rifle. He is the fourth generation to graduate from U. S. N. A., a record worth continuing. Good natured, happy, always smiling, and forever doing his best no matter what. Burns fits exacdy the type of man who makes a good officer.

Radio and golf were his chief loves before entering the Acad- emy, but aside from that mysterious transmitter he built in his first class- man ' s room plebe year, his spare time has been spent on the golf course. Jim, Lonnie, and Speed, rain or shine — what a threesome they ' ve been! Jim is easy going, thoughtful, and thorough. One of the " fair haired " boys of the academic departments, the stars have become old and tarnished by their long stay on his collar. Jim has a common trouble with wom- en — either too many at one time or too few. When he drags one of his own choice though, we ' ll all be there be- cause we know she will be worth meet- ing. The small effort he has to put forth to keep things under control makes him an easy man to get for a fourth at bridge. Wherever he goes, Jim won ' t be hurry- ing, but we know he ' ll get there. t0i mi Pasadena, Calif. Whenever we hear the phrase, " He ' s all Navy, " we think of Ken. His sole ambition in life has always been to be a naval officer. A true son of Califor- nia, he spent his summers as a seaman in sailing ships and evaded high school by enlisting in the Navy. " See the world from a signal bridge " became his motto, and while on the Coronation Cruise of 1937, he received a message that he had passed the entrance exams. We called him " reg " Kinney plebe year and there were rumors that he took his regulation book home on Christmas leave. Gym is a favorite sport with " DoCj " but being a sailor at heart, he has each year joined the " Monks " at Hubbard Hall and the upper Severn. Crew season once completed, he loses no time in catching up on missed hops. He likes tall girls and knows the tall stories to hold them. Not a dreamer, he knows what he wants from life. We ' ll miss the determined step in the corridor that has told us of Ken ' s approach. York, Pa. Do you know Lonnie? Here ' s what you missed. The Dutch people have a reputation for being spotless and neat. Lonnie more than lives up to their stand- ards. On " youngster " cruise, Lonnie ' s locker was always neatly stowed. Such habits are not made in a day. His room, locker, and all his gear are always per- fect. One might think that such a method- ical person would surely be an introvert. The converse is true about Lonnie. He keeps all his old friends and makes many new ones by always speaking to every- one and maintaining a sincere interest in their progress. Being a " jitterbug " at heart, he misses very few hops. Lonnie isn ' t a " radiator club " man who depends on the hops for his exer- cise. Each spring he is the first one to go swinging over to the golf course. In the winter, his gyrations on the parallel bars keep him in shape. He is diligent with his lessons and all he does. Be- cause he is such a worker, Lonnie gets the most from his recreation, the Acad- emy, and life. Soccer 4, i; Golf 4, 3, 2, NA ; Radio Club 4, 2, i; Crest Committee; Ring Committee; Company Track 4.

A friend of ours is on one of them. You ' ve heard the old saying, " The only sailor worth his salt is one brought up in sail. " Dick must have heard it and taken it seriously. A fast, thrilling race with the " lee rail under " would not be complete without Dick ' s black-haired figure in sight. Besides being a sailor, Dick is also a good listener. He is always ready to listen to your troubles and help you solve them. Strange thing about the talks is that when the conversation ends, Dick ' s troubles are under discussion rather than your own. Speaking of troubles, Dick has cer- tainly had his share. He had both arms broken within five months. Because of the long time spent in the hospital, he had a great deal of work to make up. In spite of the adversities, Dick was out swinging with the rest of the people when the band began to play. Dick doesn ' t take things too seriously but he hkes to do his job well. Such an out- look leads to a happy life. The Log 4, 3, 2, i; Gym 4, j; Boat Club 2, I. Magnoll , Texas This man Tom McWhorter is no dan- dy. One does not have to see the Long- horn on his tie clasp to realize that he is a Texan. Trifles could never assume any degree of exaggerated importance as far as Tom is concerned. His quiet and unassuming attitude is character- istic of the Cattle State and enables only his closest friends to learn and appre- ciate his thoughts and convictions which he stands by most firmly. Tom has managed to develop an enviable versa- tility in interests. He came out of the Great Southwest with a true apprecia- tion of opera music as well as the reali- zation of the aflTcction that a man can know for a horse. During his Academy career, " Mac " has supported his bat- talion consistently in lacrosse and foot- ball. Because of his congenial " live and let live " nature and his serious tempera- ment, Tom " grows " on his friends the more they see of him.

When Craig came to the Naval Acad- emy, one love from his civilian days was retained and amplified : an ardor for sailing. Having sailed the East Coast between Sandy Hook and Cape Cod in a yawl, Gloucester lisliing sloop, and the schooner Tanya, tiiis recreation su- perceded all the athletics that he had participated in during high school years. Those other athletics had been aban- doned with the advent of the tobacco habit; which is characteristic of C raig ' s " double-or-nothing " personality —a na- ture which is somewhat perplexing in its homogeneity and eccentricities. Craig is a staunch exponent of a " little bit of Old New York, " coming from the near Jersey side — East Orange. " Knicker- bocker town, " and all its elements ap- peal to him — from .McSorley ' s .Me House to the Rainbow Room. C:raig has accumulated a nunii)er of nicknames through the years : " Cionk " (of u hieli he he is most jiroud), " .Monster, " and " Speedy " being a few.

Coming to us by way of Purdue Uni- versity, where he acquired no little knowledge and a Phi Delt pin, Stu has not only taken the academics in stride, but has also found time for athletics (although he ' s tapered off a bit after an active plebe year), Musical Clubs, Press Gang, and Reef Points. As ed- itor of the " plebe ' s Bible, " Stu found second class year a mad rush of copy reading, interviewing printers, and wor- rying about deadlines, but the excellent results proved that the tedious hours were well spent. Besides arguments, he is fond of good music, " boilermakers, " dancing, and sleep. His dislikes are, of course, the system, and also people who are prone to consider Webster Groves, Missouri, to be in the " West.

" By these words you shall know him — the ever flowing talk of basketball and its various phases serves to identify Rich as no picture could ever hope to do.

Coming from an all-Navy prep school, WALLACE JAMES RICHARDSON Wally was far ahead of us plebe sum- mer as to " ways, customs, and tradi- tions. " Striking out contrary to his family tradition by not becoming a member of Harvard, ' 40, he was not going to let the little ordeal of plebe year disturb him. The four past years of sharing desk and shaving mirror with Rich have proved there ' s nobody quite like him. Ever ready to play cards, listen to any type of music, discuss a good book or play, or just indulge in a plain old bull session, he ' s been one of the best ship- mates possible.

Among the last few to enter ' 4 1 was a young lad from Muskogee, Oklahoma. That his knowledge of the sea was small made Httle difference. He was ambi- tious and willing to subject himself to anything the Navy had to offer with the idea that in the end Kirk would come out the winner. With this firm purpose in mind he spent his four years here, not always perfectly satisfied, but never complaining. Before entering U. S. N. A., Don at- tended Muskogee J. C, and both in high school and at college he took an active interest in the forensic arts, winning dis- tinction in both state and national tour- naments. As a midshipman, however, he has limited his speaking to the class- room and to arguing with his friends, taking either side of any subject. Ex- tra time he spends on the sub and weak squads and as business manager of The Trident. Keen insight, willingness to offer assistance, and ability to appre- ciate the other fellow ' s point of view have won him the respect of juniors, seniors, and classmates alike.

Six years ago a young lad in Rich- mond, Missouri, was playing a little for William-Jewell College, and entertain- ing dreams of one day becoming an Ad- miral. Two years later he dropped his gear in the Main OfTice of Bancroft Hall and into ' 41 came Otto. Since that day Otto has become one of our best liked members, for, although some have a larger circle of friends, none have fewer enemies. His unassuming, quiet, good humor, his sincerity and re- liability are characteristics which have won the respect of his classmates. The determination underlying his belief that, although he can ' t beat the system, " neither can the system beat him, " has won the respect of his seniors. Outstanding in his personality is the rare quality of modesty, for while most of us broadcast personal achievement, few of Otto ' s own classmates know that he ' s been a first quarter man every year. His activities have been confined to an active membership in the Boat Club, participation in battalion athletics, and extended membership on the sub and weak squads. Lakkwooi), Ohio Out of the corn and Indian mound country of the orthwest territory came the Seedskin in the summer of ' 37. After completing high school he sought to pac- ify his insatiable desires for higher edu- cation at Case School of Applied Science in his native Ohio. After a year, though, the Navy called, and our little man heeded the blast. For such a little man, Walt manages to have an amazing number of irons in the fire.

Not even the brother Delta Upsilons at the University of IlUnois could keep John from the Navy, and the academic departments with all their terrors have been unable to get him out. With in- terests running from bridge or the latest recordings, to handball or the rare oc- casions for ice-skating, John seldom had time for bunk drill. Friendliness is John ' s keynote, but a natural courtesy and consideration for others is an equally outstanding trait. To ask a favor was to be assured of hav- ing his aid, for his willingness to help a friend was practically unlimited. In his tastes, John is quite definite and not easily influenced once his mind is made up. Music is his favorite hobby, and playing the piano adds to his en- joyment. One might also include the art of conversation as a hobby, but it is too much a habit to be called anything else. John will never lack friends, be it a companion with whom to stand a watch or a pal with whom to make a liberty.

P. with some of the delta mud still on him. He left his motorcycle, girl friend, and " Sad-dy " nights for Annapolis, and when the Academy tried to change him, he wouldn ' t allow it. In the beginning of plebe year it was evident that his favorite hobbies were sleeping and eating. His knock-out in boxing didn ' t faze him, either, for he was right back at work developing hooks and such. His constant training and lightning speed deservedly won for him the long coveted captaincy of the box- ing team. Studying is of minor importance to Margie — he thinks it ' s far better to read boxing magazines or just to do nothing. He is happy-go-lucky, carefree, and puts everything off until the last minute. Outstanding in his appearance are his pugilistic nose, his rust colored hair, and his happy smile. There ' s never a dull moment with him, and he ' s a swell roommate.

He took us under his wing second class year and we ' ve never had cause to be sorry for this combination. Cheerful, easy-going, always ready to provide a laugh, certainly one couldn ' t ask for a better roommate. Ace never ran into any difficulty with academics ; in fact, he proved of great assistance to us in such horrible things as math and skinny. He spends most of his time at the boat house pulling a lusty oar for our crew, his greatest source of enjoyment. The few odd moments spared from studies and crew are spent trying to catch up in his correspondence with a ready supply of OAO ' s. Oh, yes, he has his woman troubles, too, along with his ambitions in the Navy and a happy home life. We can truth- fully say with our knowledge of Ace that they will all be fulfilled too.

Chick descended upon the Naval Academy from Mount ernon, New York, and lias given the folks hack home good reason to he proud of him. Al- ways keeping the academics well under control, he has found time to do a lot of work in the ring, and woe be unto the drug store cowboy who starts tossing smart remarks his way. One of his pet dreams is life in a quiet spot far from the disturbing influence of the feminine ele- ment. Not putting much faith in wom- en as a rule, Chick has nevertheless cultivated the acquaintances of several very beautiful young ladies — for future reference, perhaps! As a great lover of modern music. Chick has spent many spare hours collecting and listening to his set of the newest popular recordings which is now one of the Academy ' s most complete collections. Four years with Chick and no cause to regret it, for he is a regular guy and the best friend, roommate, and classmate that anyone could ask for. He ' ll be the same kind of a shipmate.

This Yankee can be found almost any- where in the vicinity, he doesn ' t miss much — in any case he ' ll be standing with his feet very, very wide apart mark- ing on thin air with a forefinger to em- phasize a point. It ' s an argument, you can bet, and he ' ll take both sides if nec- essary to keep it going. As for academic aptness, Sanch is one if those fortunate savoirs who are always at the top or close to it. It may be said that he cherishes am- bitions : wine, women, song, and a life of ease. Besides snaking along with the best of them, his present weaknesses seem to be bridge, sailing, bridge, Strauss waltzes, a hankering for other classics, and more bridge. Aside from these odds and ends, it ' s fairly safe to say that the Navy will be richer by a good ofTicer, come Graduation Day.

From Memphis on the Mississippi, ' way down there in Ten- nessee, comes this jolly Rebel, and a truer son of Dixie never breathed. He came to us already something of a mili- tary man, having spent some of his school days at Columbia Military Acad- emy, and he has had little trouble with the various executive and academic phases of academy life. There ' s a rumor that he missed a hop once — must have been a broken leg or something equally as serious, for where there is a hop there must be blondes, and where there arc blondes, there is Brewster. Between hops he manages to get in time for a few of his other hobbies, nota- bly bridge, music, sports of the season, and no small amount of letter writing.

" You gotta show me, " and George is not the exception that proves this rule. Whether it ' s nav, math, or women, there just has to be a reason in back of it all. Rather than waiting to be shown, though, he ' ll usually find it for himself After more than two years at the U. of Missouri, studies were never any trouble, so Arlie ' s time was spent in conjuring up questions which the profs couldn ' t an- swer. Driven to desperation by the Acad- emy barbers, who are evidently of In- dian descent, he took up barbering dur- ing second class year and made quite a name for himself, strictly with an ama- teur standing but professional skill. Women! George enjoyed this subject immensely as evidenced by the fact that he hasn ' t missed an informal or a hop during the last three years. Just to prove the truth of " brain over brawn, " George indulges in his favorite pastime, wrestling with some bigger man. No one will forget his willingness to help out his classmates — if anyone got into hot water, George would either get him out or get in with him.

" That ' s what you ' ll say when Tom comes along with a grin spread all over his face. In every humor he ' s the same carefree son of Old Erin ; there ' s just something about that map of Ire- land that puts you at ease when you ' re around him. Tom was the most eligible young man in New Lexington, Ohio, but that didn ' t keep him from going to Columbus to attend Ohio State University for a year. It was in a Columbus drug store that he overheard some fellow saying, " The Navy needs men! " Two months later in the Academy everybody knew Tom as Three Star Hennessey ; it ' s a natural for him. Bucky Walsh ' s pep talks drew him out for plebe crew, and every year he has returned to support his battalion in this field. He ' s there when you need him, and if he ' s there when you don ' t he ' ll keep quiet. Has he ever told you about his troubles? He won ' t ; and so far as we know he has none, for look at that smile! Washington, D. C. They didn ' t make ' em big or tough enough in Washington, so the Mighty Mite dropped over with that good na- tured chip on his shoulder to see if the forty-eight states could produce anyone a good little man couldn ' t handle. He hasn ' t had a chance to find out because his sunny nature develops only friends, and he can ' t help smiling at his own swagger. Even so, he pursues his friend- ly feuds with such intensity that the big- gest of us respect his terrible threats. ELWOOD A. COBEY, JR.

During tlie short winter season when he is not out for some athletic team, he can usually be found in Mahan Hall at his favorite in- door sport — acting. Diverted from a stage career by an appointment to the U. S. N. A., Doc is determined to find some use for his course in dramatics at college — he will begin acting on the slightest provocation. He is also known LOWELL CROSBY SAVAGE I for his inability to win at poker, his con- tinuous singing, and his wild tales. Never worried by academics, Doc de- votes a good portion of each study pe- riod to the morning paper. The aggressiveness that Doc shows on the athletic field belies his friendly na- ture, and, despite numerous liours of extra duty, he has never been down hearted. Always ready to explain a diflicult problem with his own solution (worked b ack from the answer). Doc is also a master in the art of circumlocu- tion. He has twin ambitions — to go through Pensacola and to grow a mus- tache. Musical Clubs Shows 4, 3, 2, i; Football 4, J, 2, i; Track 4, j, 2; Masqueraders 4, j, 2, President i. (i. l)SUKN, Ar,A. Wafted North by the strong wind of ' 37 that caught us from all parts of the United States and deposited us at the Naval Academy, tagged with a brand new ' 41, Morgan left the Black Belt in or Alabam to try his hand at things salty. Fresh from a few years of college and with a keen eye and an alert mind, " Pierpont " made his way quickly. Always in the " know " where academ- ics were concerned, Morgan had time for other activities also. A radio bug and a real " ham, " he naturally attached himself to the Radio Club. It wasn ' t long before his drawer became full of spare parts and a transmitter began to take shape in the room. It was usually kept in the closet. Morgan ' s hobbies, other than radio, were two B ' s — bridge and bunk. If he wasn ' t tinkering with somebody ' s radio or looking for a fourth, he was invariably holding bunk drill and probably dreaming of grits and Southern fried chicken. Quiet, thought- ful, and discerning, John is the officer we want for a shipmate. Radio Club 4, j, 2, i. JOHN MORGAN DUKE, JR.

If called " fourth, " the little man shows remarkable ability at bridge. Prior to his .Academy life he had per- fected a fast free style swim which never was put into use here, as his philoso[)hy was that athletics and academics don ' t mix. You ' ll see him on the golf course, in the Masqueraders, at hops, and often in the ward room devouring an inoffen- sive chocolate sundae. . nd sing, say, he once said that if they recorded his voice on some four part harmony it would be the best quartet in the world.

Out of the far west came Ned, with a determination to become a naval officer of the highest caHbre, and with the men- tal and physical qualities that will make him that and more. However, Ned ' s ambitions are flexible enough to enable him to enjoy the lighter side of life, and nine times out of ten, Saturday night will find Sturdy a member of the " Fly- ing Squadron. " His versatility and untiring energy make him the man for any job, and no matter what the problem, be it escaping the wiles of a predatory female, or one of the lesser importance. Sturdy can de- vise a method of solving it — or of side- stepping it neatly. His talent for or- ganization has led him the coveted position of The Lucky Bag Business Manager. His ready smile and whimsical humor make an " Open Sesame " to any door, and will carry Ned far, whether in the Service or the great outside. Ever ready for work or liberty, he has earned a place in our memories which will never be dimmed by time. San Jose, Calif. Tom ' s interest in the Navy began about as soon as he could distinguish be- tween a battlewagon and a San Fran- cisco Bay ferryboat, and time has only served to make him the despair of those plebes who were called upon to answer his varied questions about the service. The first tea fights of plebe summer found " T. C. " already becoming an ever present fixture at any gathering which included anything but uniforms. What began as a diversion has grown into a ruling passion. If he isn ' t at a hop it ' s because he couldn ' t trade off a week-end watch. But " Sugar ' s " life is beset with care and anxieties. His soul is at rest only when he can fret himself blue and gold in the face! However, his main worry is whether he can achieve his cherished goal of becoming a submarine skipper. Whatever the future may bring, we are looking forward to many years of companionship and to even bigger lib- erties out in the fleet with Sugar. A » .c jz ttvo Nashville, Tenn. Out of Tennessee comes Sweet Willie Williams. He ' s a Southerner born and bred, and woe be unto the loose-tongued fellow who speaks of his native state in a disparaging way should Hensley be around to hear. While not quite a star man, Sweet is always just a number or two short of the gold collar marks, being one of those individuals who if given time can sit down and figure out the toughest problem. Lazy — -yes, but only at the right time ; slow — the lads always have to wait for him ; a good bridge partner — -you said it. He tries his hand at a wide variety of sports, but, more often than not, he can be found in his fa- vorite position — horizontal on his bunk, deeply engrossed in the current issue of Time. Endowed with a great deal of com- mon sense, more than his share of good looks, a delightful sense of humor, and a winning personality, he is sure to reach whatever goal he sets out for.

Jack is a true Virginian, hailing from the upper reaches of the Shenan- doah Valley ; although he traveled far and wide with the Navy for a full eight- een years before starting an active ca- reer, his fondness for fine horses and beautiful women stand as indelible markers of his true sentiments. Out- wardly, though, Jack is a man who, by tradition, looks on the Navy not just as an occupation, but as the very top of all professions for which one cannot hold too high an esteem. No mean athlete, the possessor of an N star second class year, a scholar lying close to the star line, and a lad with a profile that causes far more than his share of trouble in the female ranks — that ' s Jack. If ever you feel the urge of listening to a really good tale, drop around and ask Jack about Youngster Christmas. As the years roll by. Jack will always be at the top, despite his fear of becoming a bit bald with all its attendant sidelines and distracting influences. Lawrence, Mass. Not the least of Bill ' s accomplishments was telling the second class during his plebe summer about the fahg from Bahs- tun to Bah Hahbuh.

Bill has a definite feeling for fine music, good books, and lively conversation — and les femmes. Jarvis is not afraid to try out any new ideas he may have, and it is practically impossible to shake his con- victions. High in this category will remain the additions he made to the French language in dago classes. One characteristic that stands out in Bill ' s makeup is his real interest in any troubles you may have — the mark of a true friend. It will be hard for him to measure up to his own standards of an ofiicer and a gentleman. He has already measured up to oins. Indianapolis, Ind. A Culver man and a reformed St. Johnny, Honest Bob brought to the Naval Academy a sample of Hoosier man power. His bull-dog persistence has triumphed over the academic de- partments despite his theory that a good book and pipe are better than a slip- stick and glasses. His locker door and mail render false Bob ' s assertion that women are a snare and delusion while his drags rate something better than that shining proboscis. The tendency to be frank at all times and to be stubborn when his convictions are refuted have gotten him into minor troul)lcs in the past, and may do so in the futuie. At any rate, that lump of connnoii sense will bring him back to the right track in short order.

There is a fine service tradition in his family, and The Kid realizes it fully. He has to work hard to match the achievements of his brothers and Dad, but that chal- lenge doesn ' t worry him at all. The Kid ' s chief asset is a perfect philosophy of life which allows him to laugh at everything — even his own troubles. He still possesses a marvelous ability to make things with his hands — a knack which was encouraged at home before he entered the Academy. He claims to be an expert horticulturist — as far as raising orchids goes. Lacrosse is his favorite outdoor sport, and he participates in clubs from stamps to French.

Torch Lake was the scene of Bob ' s first nautical activity. When most of us were forming our earliest memories, he was sailing scows back there in Mich- igan.

Doug, as a Navy junior, naturally did a great deal of traveling before he came into the Academy. His globe-trotting, which included such places as Hawaii and Japan, did much to give Doug a natural worldliness and a broad point of view. Two years without so much as a slight quarrel with his roommate is evidence enough that it ' s easy to get along with Doug. He had some early academic troubles, but before the four years were up he had jumped nearly two hundred numbers in class standing. His hobby is photography. He has mastered per- fectly the incomprehensible lingo of " panchromatic-duosensitivity " (or something that sounds equally mysteri- ous) — and incidentally he takes good pictures. His sport is rifle, and his suc- cess with a gun is borne out by the num- ber of medals on his full dress jacket. Two of his traits have impressed his roommate most. The first is his love for imaginative fiction, which he reads profusely. The second, is his ability to enjoy a long shower followed by a good nap.

This meticulous attention to each de- tail is not reserved solely for dress occa- sions, either, for Jeff ' s shoe shines have been the envy of every man in ranks with him for four years. The nickname " Horizontal, " wliich he earned by means of his outstanding fondness for bunk drill, might lead one to believe the person described is lazy, if it were not for his accomplishments — but the Navy varsity on the tennis courts disprove that assumption immediately. Tenacity is the keynote of John ' s atti- tude toward both tennis and academics. He takes himself seriously in both fields and gets results. Pensacola has always been Jeff ' s dream and goal. His tenacity of pur- pose should carry him on to a realiza- tion of that dream when he finds him- self cavorting around in the clouds in one of the Navy ' s latest fighters.

He even had the plebes at his table in the mess hall ask him ques- tions in order to expand his already ex- tensive circle of knowledge.

VICTOR ANTOINE MOITORET 307 RICHARD EPLEY FOSTER f cf « 5 : Piedmont, Calif. From Piedmont, on the slopes of sunny California, the summer of 1937 brought a boy with a fighting spirit, a generous nature, and a grin that stretched from one famous ear to the other. A fluent intermingling of com- mon sense with book sense brings Dick admirable returns with minimum eflfort and explain his ability to keep up with the latest in magazines while still writ- ing so many letters that there was ever a lack of stamps. Overshadowing some high-jumping for the track team, football played the leading role in his academy life. Start- ing the season of 1939 on the third string, he finished it with an honorable men- tion for Ail-American end and the team captaincy for 1940 to his credit. From the youngster filled room sec- ond class year, the sound of the better grade of old and modern swing music, and his warm and ever present " What do you know?

With a natural smile that broadens his thin face, Johnny came to us orig- inally from Baltimore. Since then he has been a perfect host to his many friends, girls and boys alike, in his home in Crabtown. Any Sunday afternoon plebe year, convincing evidence of John- Wirt ' s favorite indoor sport could be de- tected within a mile of his home. John- ny is a drummer by hobby, holding down the drums in the NA-io. He knows the favorite licks of all the " skin beaters " since the Indians scared white men with their tom-toms. How he can study while denting all the furniture in Bancroft Hall with his drum sticks is a mystery to everyone. As a result of such practice, Jose has had a few academic difficulties, but he ' s always come out a step ahead of studies. Outdoors Johnny uses his tall, slim figure to advantage on the tennis court. No set-back alters his cheerful spirit and easy going ways. For this and for his ready smile Johnny will be remem- bered by all of us.

C " Don ' t make me mad or I ' ll tower over you. " This is Buck ' s favorite ex- pression, reserved for his friends of the fourth platoon. He possesses a remark- able sense of humor, and, what is more, it is entirely original. It is a very safe assumption that he comprises the max- imum in jollity per cubic foot. He is extremely well liked for his easy going nature and his habit of never con- cerning himself too much about the fu- ture. This latter characteristic has caused him a small bit of trouble in the academic hurdles, but Buck has always contended that ten days Christmas leave is too long for one man anyway. He came here from Duke University and brought abilities that have seen valuable use in his participation on the Christmas card committee. The Tri- dent magazine, and as first class man- ager of the boxing team. His many capabilities and undaunted ambition will always stand him in good stead. The word efficiency is built around men like Buck, and for that reason he fits in very well with the Navy.

And, in spite of four of those unpre- dictable Maryland winters, his share of that great leveller — extra duty, and nav j)- vorks, he has kept that characteristic grin that beams all over his face and makes friends among both his juniors and seniors.

High, wide, and handsome — that ' s Bill. A conscientious personality makes him a likable chap, and though he ' ll argue with anyone over anything, he does it and gains friends rather than losing them. Buck loves gadgets and is very me- chanically minded. He delights in spending hours tinkering with machines finding out for himself how they work. Elying is his favorite pastime, and he spends his leaves back in Watertown, South Dakota, flying a Cub among other things. He is also quite a sailor and would just as soon spend an afternoon skippering a yawl or an ice boat. Bill claims the distinction of having been a radio announcer before coming to the Academy — perhaps that ' s why he has such a pleasant voice. Bill sails smoothly with the fairer sex and the same applies to academics. W ' hen the going gets tough he just lights up one of his pipes and buckles down to work. He always comes through.

It seems that a beginner does- n ' t know which gadget on a movie camera turns it off. Recent attempts with photography have been more suc- cessful, and his library now contains some really good films. Back home at Harpers Ferry High, Mac was captain of the football team — and, incidentally, his father ' s pride and joy. A trick knee prevented his partici- pation in varsity football here, but re- pairs were made and he ' s done loyal work on the B squad since. Battalion athletics, too, have profited from his services, particularly lacrosse. From a globe-trotting family Mac in- herited a love of travel. That, evidently, is as far as heredity went: a language teacher for a mother, a college president for a father, and two star French stu- dents as sisters did Mac ' s dago no real good. Dago, though, was the extent of his worries ; he enjoys everything else, and everyone enjoys him. Soccer 4; Lacrosse 4; Movie Gang j; Bat- talion Football j; Football {B) 2; Battalion Lacrosse j, 2. JOHN CHARLES FEICK, JR. Sandusky, Ohio Occasionally John will settle back and tell you something about himself But he is modest, and one learns little more than that his favorite haunts are around Put-in-Bay on Lake Erie, and that he attended the University of Michigan. From his very first appearance, he has managed to keep the study hours well filled. The manner in which he gets along with academics is exceeded only by the way he gets along with other people. His study hour was continually interrupted by the " bucket brigade, " seeking his help. At times he threat- ened to secure entirely on academics, to give more time to his activities. He was out for boxing, but a shoulder which ob- jected to staying in its joint called a halt. The Glee Club, Musical Club shows, and the piano were more to his liking. In the mess hall John got almost as much runni ng as he gave, but he took it in great fashion. Being pleasant has been something for which he has aimed, and that aim will take him places.

Many are the oppositions to that opinion, but he ' s not one to back down. Here ' s a boy that knew what he want- ed and has never wavered in his ambi- tion to be another Navy Armstrong.

With a start in the deep South, Vic sailed a lengthy course before finally joining the class of ' 41. His high school record shows a start in New Jersey with intermediate stops in Arizona and Flor- ida before returning to take his diploma from Trenton High School. After high school came service in the Fleet and a subsec{uent appointment to the Acad- emy. One of the most active members of the Boat CHub, Vic could always be found in the fall and spring keeping the ketch fleet shining and seaworthy. His many ketch trips furnish endless stories on how to learn the rules of good sea- manship and the art of navigation — the hard way. In the winter, workouts in the gym and reading books on philoso- phy were his chief pastimes. His intel- lectual philosophy changed with that of each book, but fortunately he has al- ways retained his own natural outlook of good naturedness and tolerance. Joe looks ambitiously to Pensacola, but with or without the wings, we shall all look forward to continued years of friendship with him.

Numerals on his bathrobe tell of his ability with a rifie, and one has only to see him in ac- tion to be convinced of his proficiency at sailing, bowling, or playing basket- ball.

The Scotch are a braw and bonny race, by all accounts, and " Mac " Mac- Millan, Scotland ' s favorite son, stands ever ready to substantiate each and every account. Just draw up a chair, relax while Mac lights up one of his col- lection of pipes, each ranker than the next, and then hearken as he begins his story with a " Well, Bud " He punc- tuates his remarks with smoke rings and wins his point by laying down a smoke screen from which he attacks at will. At intervals through the battle, Mac may be seen with the smoke curling around his gray hairs. He and his pipe never lose an argument. Mac has no worries as far as the Exec and the Academic departments are con- cerned, but he does worry a bit from time to time about his increasing num- ber of graying hairs. He gave up pluck- ing them long ago when he saw that it just wasn ' t any use, but he still hasn ' t lo st the hope that somewhere there ex- ists a cure for that " tattle-tale gray. " If there is, rest assured that Mac will find it. He ' s that kind. Huntington, Ind. Remember that song hit of a few seasons ago : " The Jumping Jive " ? Well, that ' s what Dick used to sing on his way to his annual physical exam. You know . . . " makes you six feet tall when you ' re five feet five " ! You can ' t tell much about a fellow from outward appearances, however, and Dick is good living proof of this axiom. Meeting ev- ery allusion to his size with a smiling re- joinder, his good nature seems to well from a perpetual spring located behind those snapping hazel eyes. Dick ' s biggest weakness, aside from a devotion to the mysteries of radio, is his love of stories of buried treasure. He even manages to link the two with a radio treasure locator, a tricky gadget which he spends much of his spare time planning. Dick has starred on crew, gym, and swimming squads. His latest sporting venture has been in the field of squash, and he periodically takes a whipping from his big opponents. Dick may be one of the smallest men in our class, but reckoning from the standpoint of spirit and pep, he ' s one of the best. Chicago, III. From the graveyard to the Naval Academy in one easy jump! That ' s Bill ' s story. In the summer of ' 37 he was called from work in one of Chica- go ' s cemeteries and told that he was to report to the Academy. One of the fresh water sailors from the Great Lakes with plenty of experi- ence in the Reserves, he came to An- napolis with a deep-rooted admiration of the sea-farers ' life. Qiaiet and unexcitable, Bill has al- ways had the policy of taking the good and bad breaks in his daily stride. A very noticeable sense of humor balances his otherwise serious nature. For a short time both the radiator and the weak squads were clamoring for his attention. After climbing that long rope, however, the latter lost out com- pletely, and he shook the former loose. Youngster year he worked diligently with Navy ' s sailing team. Bill went on to serve as first class manager for that sport. If the medics find him unable to read that chart, some civilian organization will obtain a fine, all around good fel- low.

Since Joe comes from a definitely Army family, his closest friends have never been able to figure out whether he is the black sheep of his family or just a rugged individualist. It didn ' t take Joe long, though, to make himself quite at home in the Navy even if he has never entirely given up the Army, and to him any Army brat is still a 4.0. Joe entered the Academy with the ideal that there is absolutely no point in overworking oneself and after four years is still firmly convinced of the correct- ness of his philosophy. He would rather enter into a highly technical argument than study, the favorite topic of his dis- courses being the Army and Navy air forces. Despite this interest in the air Joe did find time to turn in an excellent four year job as soccer manager. To those of us who have been class- mates with Joe for four years, there is no doubt but that Joe will pro e an asset to any ship and a shipmate whose friendship will be cherished.

After spending a very enjoyable year at the University of Detroit Jack donned the blue and gold uniform of the Navy with the intention of spending the rest of his life at sea. However, after the first few days of rough weather on Youngster Cruise, he decided that he preferred the air corps. Since that time he has been seriously considering Pensacola, for the flying course and the active social life there appeal to him very strongly. Since Bingo has had very little trouble with his studies, he has been able to par- ticipate in other activities, devoting much of his time to the boxing ring or the wrestling mat. While not engaged in athletics, he does a little sketching and day-dreaming about greater things to come. In the past few years, Jack, like many of his classmates, has become very much interested in aviation. Whether he will design planes or fly them is still a ques- tion to be decided but in either case we will expect great things from this Flying Dutchman. Track 4; Football 4, j. JOHN CHARLES BANGERT, JR. New Rochelle, N. Y. Big Ken has the distinction of being the last man to enter the class of 1941. It was the day before academic year began in 1937 that he came to the Academy fresh from the campus of the University of Michigan. A New Yorker by birth, Sterno spent his childhood days in New Rochelle and starred in football and hockey at high school. Ken really wants to be a naval officer, and his prized ambition seems to be that of serving as skipper of a de- KENNETH STEEN stroyer. This yearning of his dates back to his days of sailing on Long Island Sound. He is a natural born sailor, for he staunchly holds his own when the weather is rough and the ship begins to roll and pitch (airplanes excepted!). Next of importance to Karloflf are his athletics. He has participated with con- siderable skill on both the football and track teams during his four years here. Ken is also quite a hand with the women. His drags, from the first June Ball, have never failed to attract atten- tion and reflect credit on his ability to pick them. Football 4, 3, 2, I N . 314 MICHAEL CHARLES deSTEFANO Manhattan, N. Y.

He ' s quite interested in flying, too, and the planes based at the Acad- emy kept him jumping to the window to see what is going on or what is taking off. His minor pursuits, which occu- pied the time he wasn ' t pulling an oar and developing some first class callouses, included puttering around the machine shop and sounding sour notes on a uku- lele.

Maynard " Slant Height " Dixon came to us from the little town of Mayfiekl up in the Mohawk N ' alley in New York. He industriously managed to lit his school work and a paper route together, and during the summers he made up for lost recreation by camping, hiking, and fishing in the nearby Adirondacks. After coiuj leting high school, he showed his enthusiasm and desire for the Navy by turning down two scholarships to come here. From then on it is compara- tively recent history, and the fact that he is still with ' 41 testifies that his efforts have not been in vain. " Slanty " may be a sandblower, but he operates on the old principle that the bigger they are, the harder they fall. His daily workouts in the wrestling loft kept him in fine shape. After West Point ' s disastrous gridiron defeat in ' 39, he came into possession of an Army sweater which sees much service on leave, visually demonstrating to his friends the Navy ' s superiority over the boys in gray. He didn ' t drag much, but didn ' t mind cither, ' cause his in- terest was all centered on " someone back home. " Plebe Wrestling; Battalion Wrestlings, 2, i; Company Softball 2. MAYNARD HARRY DIXON i HAROLD WILLIAM LOCKHART Caldwell, N. J. Ever since Hal ' s entrance into the Na- val Academy he has followed with the keenest interest all things that had to do with ships, the sea, and especially the Navy. No one was more qualified to write the Navy section of Reef Points. Scarcely a day goes by that he doesn ' t refer to his pamphlet " Ships and Air- craft of the U. S. Fleet. " Faithfully attending every practice during the long crew season, Hal is al- ways ready to go to bat for crew as one of the finest sports and the Navy crew as tops. Photography is his chief hob- by, and his collection of cruise pictures makes a complete album. Carefulness and completeness are immediately ap- parent in everything he does. He is well-rounded in every point but one — he is the number one Red Mike. De- spite the best efforts of all his well-wish- ing friends he has carefully evaded all their blind drags and attendant cares. If you see a good looking, six foot, igo- pounder heading for the crewhouse or for the yawls, it is Hal. • p3t JACK LeFLORI: BROWN TAHLEqUAH, OkLA. As long as there are " Sooners " like Jack around, Oklahoma will never lack real boosters. If you want to know about the most civilized Americans pre ious to the Pilgrims from one who has al- ways lived in the Cherokee Territory just come around and meet Jack. Like a true Oklahoman he is well versed in the history of his state, coming himself from a line which boasts a " gun-toiin ' " U. S. marshal in the days of the Indian Territory. Jack has numerous accomplishments. He is particularly proud of his culinarv skill as those who have made ketch trips with him can attest. Just gi e him a supply of cheese and eggs, a few loaxes of bread, and a grill, and then stand from under. He started out to be a tcarlier hut now he ' s one of our hardiest sailors. He is headed for Pensacola and most of his spare time on leave is spent taking flying lessons.

A World Almanac, an atlas, Webster ' s dictionary, and a daily newspaper are the sine qua non of life with Admiral. His solution of most of the many debat- able subjects which inevitably arise in four years of Academy life is " Look up the facts. " And it is only by that meth- od that an agreement between us is ever reached. His love of argumentation has brought to light much obscure data ranging from the latitude and longi- tude of Timbuctoo to the superiority of Southern generals during the Civil War. We ' ve learned more than once that the miscellaneous info at his fingertips is surprisingly accurate. A guess — hardly ever ; an estimate — invariably. Sports are classified as a hobby in Admiral ' s pattern for living. His sense of humor would be his redeeming char- acteristic if one were necessary. He can laugh at both himself and a friend — and he usually does! Yet he is basically serious, having due regard for the slip- stick and the textbook. In the final analysis he was a good roommate — there is no higher commendation. Boat Club 2. Louisville, Ky. Ormsby, if not the greatest, is at least one of the greatest super-Snakes in the regiment. Very few week-ends have passed since youngster year began that Ormsby has not been seen escorting to the hops. He and his weekly drag are almost as much a fixture in Dahlgren Hall as are the guns. Come the Mon- day following Saturday and Sunday and we have a different man. In Ormsby speed, dash, and accuracy are combined to give him an average in academics just below starring. An excellent power of concentration enables him to give considerably less time to his studies than does the average midshipman. Conse- quently, the room is always strewn with numerous dry books from which he loves to quote, or cluttered with athletic para- phernalia of various descriptions. Marshall was born in Louisville, Ken- tucky, and attended Male High School, and until he passed the Academy exams he was headed for a well known law school. His ambition, however, was de- flected only temporarily, for now he hopes to be a naval lawyer. Judging from his personal characteristics and heritage he should have no trouble. Football 4, j; Quarterdeck 2, i. Big Spring, Texas Four years ago when, as a plebe, Bob was arranging the furniture in his room, he made his bed accessible from only one side — the right side. This may or may not be the key to his congenial dis- position, but it is as plausible an expla- nation as any. Of course, it may be an inherent characteristic of all long, lanky Texans to be pleasant. Bob ' s genial manner has naturally won him many friends and given him many activities. With a speaking knowl- edge of three foreign languages, he is at ROBERT HAILEY home in almost any branch of the lan- guage club. All of Bob ' s time was not devoted to study. He was a charter member of almost any Battalion sport you can name, including wrestling, soc- cer, cross-country, crew, and track. Although he heaved a rather deep sigh of refief when we buried math, aca- demics, like troubles, never have been of grave concern to Tex, and this ability to see the silver lining is going to carry him a long way in whichever branch of the service he chooses.

Dak. Dick is from one of the Dakotas, but you ' ll never remember which one with- out asking him because he never does any talking about his home town, un- like most of the rest of us. In flict, Dick docs very little talking at all unless he is approached hrst. Qiiiet and silent he was, too, in aca- demics, but somehow he always could find the right answer on the slipstick and evade the catch questions that tripped the rest of us. Math, especially, was his strong point, and even the savoirs would RICHARD CARL MARQUARDT beat a track to his door on the tough probs. Tall and lanky, Dick ' s first platoon height has given him a chance at the Severn River Navy, and he has spent a good deal of time in the shells and sin- gles stored in Hubbard Hall. Dick came to us from the fieet and now he ' s ready to return to that same fleet, still the Silent One from external appearances, but with a four year ' s stock of stories to be generously shared if anvone calls for them. Buri,in(;ton, N. C. Up from the South with a " Sho-nufr " Southern drawl came Chuck late in the summer of 1937. His cheerful smile and willingness to assist anyone in need soon gained him countless friends. Especi- ally sympathetic to the miseries of the plebes ' life, he has been a big brother to all of them and is seldom seen without one along. The number of beauties on his locker door and his daily quota of mail are surprising until one gets to know Chuck. Any time that there is dancing in Dahlgren Hall he will be found right there. During his spare time he loves to prac- tice jitterbugging, much to the discom- fort of the men in the room below. Chuck emerged first in the race for sun tans during second class summer. Other interests are swimming, studies, gym workouts, and his old Alma Mater, Elon College. An eternal locker full of chow, a supply of clean white gloves, and a sunny disposition make him an ideal roommate. These four grey walls will be gloomier when Chuck checks out. Glee Club 4.

" Geezy Peezy, what smooth water for rowing! " exclaims Frank when the Sev- ern lies calm and unwrinkled. Yep — he ' s one of that exclusive clan of hus- kies with the short, stubby haircuts, the crew. He was quite a track man at college, but the shells stole his heart here. When not setting the stroke for the varsity, he was always willing to tell you all about Poughkeepsie in ' 39 or any Cornell race. Frank doesn ' t let crew interfere with academics, however, but like all star men his chief worry has been that he would drop at least 200 num- bers, if no t bilge out altogether, every year. The Quarterdeck Society, too, has claimed its share of Pete ' s time ; that is, if serving as secretary one year and pres- ident the next took any time! Frank tries snaking, too — he can always find you a drag. Ever ready with help for those not as quick on the slipstick as him- self, Slug will always be certain of hav- ing a warm welcome in any group of shipmates. Cleveland Heights, Ohio In the spring a young man ' s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love. But with Chuck it ' s an all year process. The AMOD ' s have all been his close friends and have dropped in almost every day with a letter or two. From the way things are going Chuck will have to remember some of his math and start keeping a catalogue, using a ten-to- the-nth system to number his letters. C. P. gave up lacrosse, in which sport he had good prospects, to become a de- voted Boat Club member. If you could- n ' t find him, the odds are that he was busily working on the ketch, planning another dragging trip. His first Alma Mater was Union Col- lege in Schenectady. He had some very hectic days there and never tires of telling stories of life as such. With the complete reversal of form at the Acad- emy his only complaint has been, " This nav course would be fruit if I could add 2 and 2 and get 4 every time. " Always tops with Chuck are waltzes, ketch trips, Sep leaves, and little children. MuNCiE, Ind. To know Bob is to have a true friend — a friend that can be depended upon. This, along with his leisurely attitude and ready smile, makes him a real pal. During his leisure time he may be found in the gym working on the horse, where, by perseverance and hard work, he has proved his worth on Navy ' s champion- ship team. Or he may be seen on the tennis courts, or sailing down the bay. Bob loves boats, and he likes nothing bet- ter than a chance to prove his real abil- ity as a small boat handler. On the archery range, too. Bob is able to prove that he frequently hits his mark. Al- though he doesn ' t claim to be a savoir, he never has to worry about academics — -he just takes them as he does every- thing else, just as they come. He is one man who never complains about the " system, " for he really likes the Navy. This liking for the service is sure to lead him to a successful and outstanding career.

Jim is a real outdoorman and a true son of the West. Deep down in his heart is ever the longing and yearning to roam through the canyons and over the hills of sunny California, gun in hand, ready to shoulder and fire at the distant sight of that pair of horns which thrills the nerves of every huntsman. Much of the evening ' s study period is spent in the wilds of that Western state rather than in the grim realities of the next day ' s lessons. But Jim can afford to dream, for he has been free from aca- demic worries ever since he threw away his French grammar. His love of action and outdoor life have made him an active participant in athletics. Each afternoon finds him working hard at one of those sports in which his tireless energy and persever- ance have won many points for the Gold and Blue. May he shoot as square- ly when behind the guns of the Fleet as he has here with his tennis racket, his epee, and with his classmates. Fencing 4, j, 2, i N , Captain; Tennis 4, 3, 2 N. Piedmont, Calif. An Army Brat, Bob is another of our more cosmopolitan classmates. With the help of letters from home, the World Almanac, World Atlas, and the Army Orders in the morning paper, he man- ages to keep fairly well up with his legal residence. As the originator of the " Powder River " yell here at the Acad- emy, we first connected him with Wy- oming where he put in two happy years as a college joe at the State University. During those two years at Wyoming, Bob had quite a diversified curricula of academics, sports, and social life. Being naturally bright, he could fortunately turn a great part of his energies to the latter two. He labored through two seasons of football in Wyoming ' s highly rarefied atmosphere. Along social lines, Bob has succeeded in blending the favor- able characteristics of both Snake and Red Mike. Here at the Academy, Bob ' s academic abilities have stuck by him, and in the fall he ' s usually with the battalion cross country squad, or if it ' s spring, his in- terests turn to baseball. His witticisms are one big cause for his host of friends among his classmates. Battalion Cross Country 4, j; Battalion Base- ball 4, j; Radio Club. 321 . ySojo Athens, Ga. When Jack was still in Georgia, where battleships are seen only in newsreels, he decided that the life of a naval officer was the one he wanted, and in spite of the rude awakenings to the fact that all is not a bed of roses in the Navy — suf- fered during nearly four years in Ban- croft Hall and the training squadron — he still likes his choice. Since Jack had had previous experience with military discipline at The Citadel, he was seldom in trouble with the Executive Depart- ment, but Nav was something else, for one of his best fixes was an unsat on the Nav exam. However, by dint of hard work when it was most needed he man- aged to escape from their clutches and even to jump some numbers in the pro- cess. Because of his loyalty to his friends and his willingness to learn, Jack is cer- tain to advance to a high rank in the Navy and to acquire many more friends during his career. May he have the best of luck wherever he may be sent. Lacrosse 4; Boat Club 4, 7, 2, i; Battalion Soccer . , ; : Masquer aders j. tf Yi £ A i . : f. yricrij L. New Orleans, La. Lloyd comes from an old New Orleans family, and he is rightfully proud of the French blood running red in his veins. A year at Louisiana State offered no ob- stacle in either academics or athletics ; thus, we can easily see why Lloyd is a well known figure on the athletic field, and why he has more trouble with his drags than with the academic depart- ments. R. O. T. C. training at New Orleans Academy and L. S. U. gave him an excellent grounding in military. A close rub with the executive depart- ment during youngster year brought out his finer qualities. His keen interest in professional subjects is the envy of his classmates — in it he has found a hobby. The host of friendships which Lloyd has built up is a result of a happy-go-lucky nature ; he faces the world with a smile on his face, kindness in his heart, and a pleasant word on his lips. Equipped with these sharp tools " Detour " will continue to grow in the hearts of his associates.

From the great Middle West came this soldier boy fresh from an Army prep school. His military experience and ver- satile manner of thinking marked him a success from the beginning. Fritz has a knack for taking things easy. His cherished relaxation is a good book, a good cigar, and a soft bunk. He excels in tennis and reputedly once won a " Joe " pot in a local tournament. A keen sense of judgment and a deep interest in professional subjects have aided him to help his classmates figure FRANCIS RAYMOND MOLITOR out " how the cam works " or " what do you think I ought to do about it? " An excellent story teller, he holds his audi- ence spellbound when he narrates in his quiet, easy voice. His social life at the Academy has not in the least been neg- lected. He has been seen at many hops and his ability to keep his 4.0 drag ' s at- tention has become the envy of his ship- mates. Fritz will ease through life and attain his ambitions through his domi- nating quahties of sound judgment and common sense.

As a re- sult he never has a dull moment. Bull sessions have long been enhanced by tales of his choice escapades. A prac- tical mind, well suited to serve a naval officer, red hair, and a smile or ready laugh are his strong points. At times he has been unsat, but, being the kind who comes through when the chips are down, he has always managed to pull out from under. Variety has been the keynote of his dragging. A man who can hold his own, he goes well in any company, as much at home in the mountains as he is in a cabaret. Worcester, Massachusetts, sent this ace model airplane builder. Boy Scout, and seaman in the Naval Reserve to us four years ago. He will return now as a promising Ensign, a well dressed young gentleman, and a man who has the con- fidence needed to gain success. His par- ticular ambition is aviation — an ambi- tion that has never wavered. When the final muster is taken, Rastus will be present.

At Large Born in Washington and reared in Navy towns on both coasts, Dave settled down here for a four-year tussle with the Academic Department. With a happy-go-lucky air, a keen sense of hu- mor, and a naturally pleasant disposi- tion, he is usually on hand to take an active part in any kind of a session. Once converted (Red Mike to Snake), Dave never extended his bunk drills in- to the week-ends. Bunk drill is defi- nitely his chief diversion, but the football season always finds him hard at work in a manager ' s berth which earned for him the position of first class manager. No doubt he will manage to find a place in the Supply Corps and follow his Fath- er ' s footsteps to success. Fishook has his own ideas on things in general. You can argue w ith him about any of these, but without avail. Along with these, he has determination which will enable him to keep " steady on " and ring up four bells towards an adventurous life which he wants, and is sure to enjoy. MlI.W.M ' KKK, Wis. As far back as Clhuck can rcmcinbei- he had always had as his goal West Point, but fate decreed otherwise, and early one June this rosy-cheeked Wis- consin lad passed through the gates of Annapolis. Since then Clhuck has been all -Navy and he docs not regret the change in plans.

We certainly CHARLES JOHN MERDINGER Football Manager 4, 5, 2, i; Boat Club j, 2, I. shall remember along with other things ; long bull sessions after taps, a weakness for hamburgers on Sunday afternoons, a plebe tea fight second class summer. Dahlgren Hall knew Chuck not only as a basketball player, but also as a familiar figure on hop nights, usually in search of his popular drag but neverthe- less thoroughly enjoying himself While here he has made an enviable record for himself in athletics as well as in other activities, and despite these numerous pursuits Chuck has managed to stand high in his class with a minimum amount of studying.

A native of the hills of West Virginia, " Vitch " was never much interested in education, but due to the normal paren- tal influence he had to put up with such. His career was planned as a lawyer. Due to some quirk of fate, however, he chose the sea. After a year at Marion Military Institute, he found himself duly sworn in as a midshipman. He ' s a rather quiet sort of fellow and picks his own friends. One could say he ' s a rad- ical in a moderate sense of the word. At least he has his own ideas and is known for carrying them out. People that don ' t know him could term him cynical. He ' s not self-centered, but un- less approached for an opinion, he re- fuses to let another ' s troubles bother him. Although considered a hard sort among the plebes, nothing suits him more than being his own boss. He likes glamorous haircuts, Washington, and good times, the latter which he promotes with his favorite words, heard in many a distant port, " Let ' s have a party.

Tuck refuses to get excited about most things but in an argument he ' s likely to grow quite vehement. Keeping just ahead of the sub squad for three years qualifies him as the " Champion Swim- mer of the Sub Squad. " He is disquali- fied as a Red Mike by having had the same O. A.

He aston- ishes himself and others by explaining things about which he knows nothing. He takes peculiar pride that he has never attended a tea-fight. He also likes the Navy and isn ' t afraid to say so. His twin ambitions are to be a good naval officer and to be happily married, soon.

In encounters with the Executive Depart- ment, he was consistently the loser, win- ning his Black N youngster year. Too small for varsity squads, Rus en- gaged in battalion football, basketball, and baseball. His remaining spare time was spent in Boat Club activities, for he possesses a love for the sea born of ex- perience in the fleet. He tussled with nearby friends any time he was challenged. With his will to win and sturdy bow legs. Rusty ac- quitted himself well. A quiet, modest manner made him a good conversation- alist. That ' s one reason numerous drags enjoyed their week-ends as his guest. Smooth dancing resulted not only from his natural ability and consistent prac- tice at hops, but from repeated private " jam sessions " in his room. Definitely an enthusiast. Rusty always takes keen interest in anything new or exciting. As an outlet for his enthusiasm he hopes to become a naval aviator.

" Relaxa- tions and rest are foremost among Ed ' s musts. He has managed to catch more than his share of winks and still main- tain satisfactory marks. Ed is a very ac- complished dancer and could no doubt have more than his share of drags, but he thinks that dragging over the entire week-end is burdensome and quite a bother. Even so, he usually shows up at every hop. " Torso, " as many call him, hails from the rock-bound coast of Maine, and he has always been proud of that fact. He maintains that there is no comparison whatever between the hills of Maryland and the lovely mountains of his home state. He ' s a quiet, unassuming fellow who has many friends and most of them regard him as their confidant. He plans to enjoy life while he can. He doesn ' t intend to take life too seriously and claims that he might even remain a bachelor — a point upon which his friends will immediately disagree. ROBERT JOSEPH DURETTE New Hampshire His friends call him Frenchie. A few of his very close ones, whenever they wish to attract his attention, call him " Frog " whereupon Bob is seen to cringe ever so slightly. From deep in the White Mountains, Bob staggered into Wash- ington looking for an appointment. The big city sort of stumped this mountain lad, but he got the appointment and there ended his happy days. From that day on his favorite and most consistent phrase has been, " I don ' t like it here. " His good looks have attracted much at- tention and recently an officer was heard to remark, " Just what do you do with that cold cream, Mr. Durette? " When not complaining about the sys- tem, he can be found either playing foot- ball or getting in shape and meanwhile muttering such nothings as, " I think I ' ll cut down on the skags " — which he never does. Frenchie ' s ambition is to be sub- jected to some more of that Parisian culture and — oh, yes — his pet peeve — don ' t call him sailor — that is if you don ' t want 185 pounds of wildcat all over you. Ci. Cj. - " l- . Pasco, Wash. Rolling out of Pasco Basin, Mac brought to us a supply of yarns that are forever flowing from behind that lov- able smile of his. Often has been the time when Arthur has made the young- ster ' s eyes gleam with passion over those tales of " Now When I Was in College. " Although, we wonder at the Scrouch ' s stories, we can readily understand his love of life from the manner in which he meets it. That knowing and confident smile gives us an idea that " McGooch " ARTHUR WILLIAM McCULLOCH must have been quite a character in his old haunts. " The man most likely to succeed " they dubbed him when he left for Washington State, and although he has been christened a bit more during three years at the Academy, Mac ' s ex- ploits are not unknown, for the " Hot Foot " is never a man to turn a good laugh down, nor a party at St. Johns. After a vigorous week-end, the " Scrouch " spends most of his time hori- zontally reclined, talking over escapades with " Weesky. " Companionship is both his greatest essential and quality.

RufF came to us fresh from the Uni- versity of North CUirohua with, wluit he thought, enough knowledge to set this place on fire. A couple of close calls plebc and youngster year, however, served to cool him off a bit. The ex- ecutive and academic departments have fiiiled though, in entirely killing that " college Joe " spirit. A liberty hound, Rabbi is always the first ashore and is already securely es- tablished when the lesser enthusiasts MARVIN BRITT RUFFIN ' yC Iyi j pru inju Bai.timork, Mn. " Sleep and the world goes round. " That ' s Vic ' s favorite quotation, and it adequately ex|)lains why he ' s always busy. Every afternoon while his class- mates are taking life easy or making u|) for a bit of lost sleep, ' ic can be found engaging in a game of football or la- crosse ; and being one of the larger mem- bers of the first platoon, he succeeded, even as a youngster, in making the var- sity squads in both sports. It is on the week-ends, though, that Vic really ex- cels, for he is never without a drag, blonde or brunette or red head, from points North or South, and rating any- where from a 3.5 to a 4.0. Coming from nearby Baltimore, An- nie had two strikes on him, when he en- tered the Academy, but he managed to overcome that and in spite of a tussle with youngster dago he ' s still with us. Although the bane of the plebcs ' ex- istence with a bellow that makes them quake, he is, as his classmates have learned, quiet, good natured, and a wel- come addition to any group.

" Of course the name was soon dropped! So he went as the years passed by, and although three or four years younger than most of us, he distinguished himself not only in studies but in that ancient sport of running. Yes, that slight Iniild carries him over five miles or so in an astound- ingly short time, a mere matter of twenty-five minutes! Besides being the captain of Xavy ' s 1940 C ross C ' ountry Scjuad, Ted also held up the glory of the Naval . cadcmy milers on the track team. Yep, eciually as fast on the track as he is on the slip stick — a true mark of an athlete and a scholar. Cross Counlrj 4, 5, 2, Captain i X ; I rack 4, 3, 2, I N ; Star 4, 3, 2. JAMES VICTOR ROWNEY THEODORE TAYLOR WALKER finally arrive. By no means a Red Mike, a " crab " has been his favorite diversion. Yes, sir! — not a bad lover. The e.xec. department nearly scuttled him once, though, when the D. O. caught him doing some remote control courting via telephone at three o ' clock in the morn- ing. Things to watch out for in Mechushia are : don ' t believe half of the scuttlebutt he puts out; don ' t bet with him ; and don ' t offer him any of your chow. He ' ll always do the unexpected — never a dull moment. Add all of this together and what have you got? That Southern Tarheel, Rullin, a darn good roommate. Wrestling 4,3, . " i 327 .U C f- . 6.5. A ccaID Maplewood, N. J Jack left the serene countryside of Maplewood, New Jersey, to enter a life replete with bells, formations, and ac- tivity. Academics offered him no diffi- culty, but the rope-climbing in the gym was not easy. Edgar consistently shoots expert at the rifle range without extend- ing himself. Music holds great lure for him, be it Beethoven ' s Fifth Symphony or the classic swing of Artie Shaw. On sunny afternoons you could find him on the tennis courts smashing the ball over the net in Don Budge style. The possession of a cheery smile and a rather restricted carefree attitude have earned him a host of friends both at the Academy and at home. The advent of leave always found J. C. hugging the inside rail for that homeward stretch, while the resumption of classes gave us a different person — a midshipman weary, homesick, and even at times lovesick. His genial smile and wholesome wit have made Edgar one of ' 41 ' s outstand- ing personalities, and we ' ll be watching for him to sprout those coveted gold wings of a naval aviator. Jersey City, N. J. Without a doubt Ed ' s entrance into the Naval Academy was unique ; he was a senior in high school when he re- ceived his appointment. He immedi- ately retired from school and boned his entrance exams. Ed claims if he ever bilged out, he would be out in the world without a high school diploma. Often has he cheered up a dreary class with moments of diversion. His classic wit is unmatched in ' 41. His quiet devotion to the service has been proved time and time again in the in- numerable bull sessions he has perpe- trated. One of the formulae which he expounds is " Good temper is like a sunny day ; it sheds its brightness every- where. " Ed ' s ambition is to become a naval attache at some foreign station, prefer- ably Russia or Japan. His ability to cultivate friendships and maintain them is indeed a gift to which not too many have access. Without reservation we can say that he will positively attain his ambition and prove an invaluable aid to the great diplomatic corps which serves our nation. Company Baseball 4; Company Rifle 4; Radio Club 4; Cheer Leader 2. Yakima, Wash. This short, blond, kinky - haired " Clam-digger " was born and raised in the fertile Yakima Valley where grow the most luscious apples of the State of Washington, and woe be unto him who attempts to belittle the apples or the state. He tells the most fabulous stories about his early life and his experiences in the fleet. No doubt he improved his imagination as a bluejacket, but Curley has a natural " gift of gab. " At the end of plebe year his first class- man willed him the job of regimental Snake, which he faithfully executed un- til June Week of youngster year when he met his O. A. O. The things he en- joys most are good bull sessions and regimental hops. He claims he has never missed a liberty to which he was entitled and says he never will. Curly never worries. Even in the middle of two re-exams his smiling face made the room seem like a little corner where we could be ourselves despite the system. He is one swell roommate but an even better friend and pal.

JOHN CORTLAND KENNEDY EDWARD STEVEN DZURA ARNOLD GRANT PLEMONS r w N ca, 328 WILLIAM P. ROBERTSON, JR. QUENTIN VAIL KOECHER HARRY ZELLNER MILLER Litchfield, Minn. A true son of Minnesota as even the name shows is Robbie, but to start a veritable war one need only suggest that the name is Swedish. He claims to be Irish and backs his statement with a curly crop of dark red hair. First as- piring to follow his father ' s footsteps and become a Navy " doc, " Robbie gave that course up to enter the fou r gray walls. The Hellcats find a ready de- fender in Jughead, and he rises to do battle with any who sing their faults. Without doubt his desire to rest has kept him on the weak squad these four years. Of course he could pass the test, but running just isn ' t in his line, and besides a ship is small and you can ' t run far, and being an ollicer and a gentleman, one shouldn ' t run — so go his arguments. His greatest hobby is collecting " dope " mostly bad and spreading it freely about. In any bull session you can hear his booming voice, and he ' s always ready for a healthy argument. San Antonio, Texas Hailing from the plains of the Great Southwest, Quentin was at first a bit mystified by deep water. Undaunted, though, this Texan set out to conquer the rolling swells and choppy whitecaps. He joined the Boat Club. Later he saw the light and turned to yawl racing. Another diversion of Quentin ' s was photography, and he knew his cameras, lights, and angles inside and out. He was a mainstay of the movie gang, and he ran oflT a good many of the Tuesday evening newsreels and comedies. Sun- day afternoons the Smoke Hall infor- mals were under his supervision, and you could always find him sitting be- hind the record changer with a pipe in his mouth smoking up his wife ' s tobacco. A good sense of humor and a striking personality will make Qiientin a good man in anyone ' s crew. His prized am- bition is to startle the yachting world with a new style spinnaker sheeted to windward. Philadelphia, Pa. From the big city of Philadelphia came H. Z. Miller to give his all to the Navy. Harry spent his pre-Acadcmy days attending Penn Charter, where he earned awards in both scholastic and athletic activities. H. Z. is a big man, but he has no trouble at all moving his bulk in high gear on the basketball fioor. He ' s in high gear, too, whenever he meets you — he is always the first with the latest scuttlebutt, and once in a while it ' s good dope too. Few men can work out morning and evening star sights faster, or drag as many good looking girls, or boast as long and varied a list of friends as Zilch. Even his classmates gel a bit dizzy just watching him when eke starts his rapid whirls and fancy dips on the dance floor. If vou want someone who will weep with you over your tale of woe or to laugh with you in recollection of some prank, jolly, good-natured Harry is the man to find, for he ' s a good conipanioii for anvthing on or off the schedule.

As a mere beardless youth, Al dreamed of becoming the Steinmetz of the chemical industry. To achieve his end he entered the engineering depart- ment of the University of Alabama. In a weak moment Al took a competitive examination for appointments to West Point and Annapolis. Winning both and hearing that the U. S. N. A. offered a tougher schedule, he characteristically chose the latter. Willing to tackle anything, he dove into the pool during plebe summer to take the required tests. But one thing worried him — he couldn ' t swim a stroke. He is quiet, philosophical, perhaps a trifle bashful, but nevertheless, when the occasion arises, Al is not to be found lacking in savoirfaire. Because of his re- tiring nature he may seem a bit hard to know, but those who have pierced this cloak of modesty number Al among their most valued friends.

From Asbury Park, New Jersey, came this member of the class of 1941. Re- clining in his chair, tilted back on two legs, puffing on his favorite pipe with a book on his knees is perhaps his favorite post for studying, Always savvy enough to stand fairly high in the class without worrying, he still found time to engage in athletics — football in particular. Be- fore evening chow he can usually be found in Smoke Hall defending his lau- rels as a first rate ping pong player. MANUAL BRILLIANT Saturday night finds him in Dahlgren Hall, where he always has a host of friends of the fairer sex. Perhaps the expression most characteristic of him is the one heard between g :oo and 9 :30 almost every morning, " Did my peanuts come yet? " — or leaning out of the win- dow calling, " Hey Rufe, let ' s go to the canteen! " To sum up Brill, he loves his peanuts, he knows his books, he loves the Navy, but above all he loves his bunk. So we say good-bye to Brill and know that he will go on to make even more friends in the fleet than the many he has already made in the Academy.

Bud was destined to carry on the traditions established by his Father. Sailor suits and discipline became the order of the day, but no amount of parental admonition could prevent Bud ' s escapades that became the talk of stately old Scarsdale. At the Academy, it soon became evi- dent that the terrors of plebe year were non-existent for Bud. Born with a gift for oratory, he could talk would-be per- secutors out of anything. Furthermore, soccer, boxing, and track kept him busy. Then, shortly before June Week he met the O. A. O. and dreams of a little white house filled Bud ' s mind and nearly caused his academic downfall, but they reckoned without his fighting spirit. Youngster year left its mark on Bud. Where humorous yarns had amused his companions, sober arguments sold Tri- dent advertising to local businessmen. He began to salt away the " monthly in- sult, " and the Ring Dance brought the miniature for the O. A. O. " Now, " says Bud, " the little white house is just around the corner!

" . . . and WOW, you should see the fish we catch up there! " Hiram never tires of extolling the virtues of the rug- ged lake country of Michigan ' s upper peninsula. Just why he became a salt water sailor we can ' t say, for he used to navigate around Lake Michigan and would have undoubtedly become a first rate lake boat Captain. To this day he prefers the taste of fresh to salt water. He will probably go down in Acad- emy history as the only man to have cap- tained a small bore team without par- ticipating in a single match. Originally of ' 40, he relaxed in the hospital his fourth year with a tenacious case of jaundice, causing his matriculation into ' 41. He is definitely a sandblower, ex- periencing greatest difficulty in keeping in step marching to classes. And who can forget those large, soft eyes with which he could fascinate anyone? We can find nothing negative in Hir- am ' s character whatsoever, except per- haps an uncanny memory for nickel debts and a discouraging ability at crib- bage. Otherwise he ' s our idea of the perfect roommate. Los An(;ei,ks, Cai.if. In 1934 Andy left high school and de- cided he would rather look at the Cali- fornia Coast from tlic Pacific Ocean than look at the Pacific from the Cali- fornia Coast. But it was not to last ; early initiated into the mysteries of the missing day, Andy sailed over the iHoth meridian and headed for the . siatic Fleet. After an interesting (from all ac- counts) year. Ling Po packed his Ditty- bag and sailed back, headed for the Naval Academy where he found a berth with ' 40. But, with graduation in view, he took a P-work in the physics of an irrcsistabic force meeting an immovable object and emerged from the liospital only in time to help ' 41 through their short first class year. Two things will cause Andy to light up like a lamp — a dancing lady and a broken radio. Whatever else he may be, he is not a Red Mike. His biggest joy, however, is wiring gadgets into squawking radios and those whose ra- dios have undergone his experimenta- tion will testify that he ' s an expert radio- man.

The contacts, the possibilities involved in planning, the work carried on from Annapolis to Chicago to Raleigh, and the feeling that we were contributing in some degree as patriotic Americans by producing the Annual in January instead of June, to meet the demands of a class graduated early so that they can aid in the defense of their country.

Built on the same frame as the .45 caliber Government Model . . . the Service Model ACE features the ingenious Floating Chamber Mechanism which produces a recoil 4 times greater than the regular ACE. Thus the shooter is trained with an arm that allows him to change later to the heavier caliber pistol without the additional recoil being noticeable. Because of the saving in ammunition costs, the Service Model ACE will pay for itself in a short time. SPECIFICATIONS Ammunition: .22 Long Rifle, Regular, High Speed or High Velocity.

To build them, and build them fast, America must have larger and better equipped air- craft factories than ever before. Two years ago. United Aircraft began a vast expansion program toward this end, involving the expenditure of more than 50 million dollars for new facilities. That program is now virtually complete. More than a million and a half square feet of floor space have been added in new buildings, millions of dollars worth of new machinery have been installed, and employment has jumped from 5,000 to 20,000 workers. Most important of all — production has steadily and rapidly increased. Today three modern plants are humming 24 hours a day, building Pratt Whitney engines, Hamilton Standard propellers, and Vought- Sikorsky aircraft at the fastest rate in their history. Here is proof of the vigor and resourcefulness of the American aircraft industry in meeting the unpre- cedented requirements for aeronautical equipment at home and abroad.
