" on which they were about to enter. Having taken that oath, they became Midshipmen in the United States Na y- the class of ' 43 was born. Slightly bewildered, a little puzzled by regulat roand discipline to which they were unac- customed, this group — -now plebes — progressed from day to day in knowledge of the Naval Academy and the Navy. We had taken a big step, perhaps the most im- portant step we were ever to take, in choosing the Navy as a profession, a career, a life. We set out upon a four-year voyage into academic and naval training, to terminate on a similar June day in 1943. But Destiny, in her ruthless manner, took a hand. Clouds of war darkened our horizons to East and West, and we found our voyage foreshortened — we were to reach port in 1942, a year early. On June 19, 1942 a group of young men united in thought and spirit, took another oath, another office. Scattered to the seven seas by the Service we have chosen, the Class of ' 43 no longer exists as such. Although we are no longer together in a body, the class will live in spirit until the very last member has started on his last, his greatest voyage. But until that day, whenever two of us meet, we will relive in thought and word those three short years at the Academy. We will recount tales of those years — reliving them Day by Day. umM -■mmmmm k m WEDNESDAY IS ALWAYS THE DAY OF P-WORK AND P-RADES THE PLEBES PRAY FOR RAIN THAT DAY. A year, a week, a day — each day, each week, each year, so vastly different and yet so similar — When we meet and retell our tales of midshipmen days, the tales will be of particular days and particular events. But always we will carry memories of the typical days of the week with their repeating class and drill schedules. For that reason, in order to better preserve those memories, we have set down here the typical day by day story of the typical midshipman. Observing no rules — for there were no rules to observe — we have plucked a typical Monday, a typical Tuesday, in short, a typical work-a-day week to tell the story of life as a mid- shipman. At times we have recorded the transi- tion of particular events that are treasured memories of us all, but on the whole this record has been made a typical one. Our war-shortened course has necessitated the use of pictures taken during years other than First Class Year — the one we prefer to remember. It has necessitated, as well, the sub- stitution, in places, of pictures other than those in- tended, for the desired ones have been censored. Nevertheless, we have endeavored here to preserve for our memory and for posterity the story of a midshipman day by day. WE END THE WEEK AT CHAPEL. SATURDAY FALL OUT THE DIIfERS! .-X f. mm Vl r, ' :...r U . ;;A-i ' iS ?.ti.L1i!. mmimmm M E D A W i MOIDIY I e 1 H feepily EVEILLE at o6ir on Monday morniner ur work-day week with the dis- cordant note of reveille bells blasting its mto our pleasant dreams. Sleepy charge of room for the week ' Ort, " All turned out, sir! " to the spector. Then, in the scant thirty minutes before breakfast formation, the same sleepy men shave, dress, and scan the headlines of a morning paper. In the mess hall, the plebes sing the " good word " for Monday morn- re ing, " Oh boy! Monday morning! another week in which to excel! " A cup of hot Java serves to sweep away a few of the hghter cob- webs that chng to sleep-starved minds, and it ' s back to the room to make beds, dust, and sweep the deck before formation for first period class —at 0745. It seems only fitting that we start our story of the typical week with an account of a typical Monday morning. It is on Monday morning that we are rudely awakened to the fact that there ' s a job to be done; and that we must educate ourselves in order to become officers capable of " fighting tlic Fleet " when it comes our turn to do so. Nc -ertheless we re!|pji being sej arated from the chaiming drags o ie previous week-end by books o :hnical sub- jects. But once again we hear me clarion call of duty, and once again it takes nearl all of Monday to penetrate and inteirupt our day dreams of home and the O.A.O. And so we trudge our weary way to first period class, struggle to concentrate on the lesson with its complicated problems, and silentK wish we were back in our bunks. Leaving class vc march back to Bancroft Hall for study hour. There we find, just as we expected, that we ha c received no mail — not even the; old Poduiik Agitator, as all the home-town jicwspapers are sCalled.

After two yealt;s and a quarter we were glad to " bury MS»4h in spirit if not with the traditional ceremony, only to see its spirit reappear in all the technical courses of our final year. Plebe math was probably not the toughest course in the Academy cur- riculum, but it accounted for many of the academic fatalities in our class muster. The naval officer must be a master of so many technical subjects — ordnance, electrical and marine en- gineering, damage control — that he must know and understand the basic ele- ments of mathematics to succeed in fur- ther studies. For this reason the Acad- emy stresses math, math, and yet more math, until at times the brain of the typical midshipman seems nothing but a twisted mass of x ' s, y ' s, and those ultra- mythical nonentities known as infini- JimaK!

Only those with a warped sense of humor were able to find material for laughter in trig- onometry or integral calculus. Most math classes were a sober affair, from " Any questions? — man the boards! " to " Knock off, gentlemen; section leader take charge. " The more recent Nav P-Works have dulled the memories of their Math counterparts, but out of the dim past some of us do recall with a shudder those biweekly ordeals in the Maury class- rooms devoted to the science of math. Some day we fondly hope to hear of a man who has finished one in the time allotted. When we bade goodbye to the Math Department second class year, we won- dered hopefully if our contact with Calculus Inc. was at an end. We found an answer in the negative in the first Juice exam, and in every other course of our last year. MATH WAS FRUIT, but even the best of us puzzled over those tough Mechanics probs. 33 mm mmmmm mamd PROFESSOR STARNS tells Roy just how to go about putting across an idea in Spanish when you can ' t speak it as the Spanish do. CAPTAIN ZIROLI supervised the Herculean task of turning midshipmen into accomplished linguists capable of service as interpreters. 34 THE title, " Department of Foreign Languages, " speaks for itself. It is this department which prepares the midship- men for interpreter and translator duty should he be assigned duty in foreign waters. Each midshipman takes a course in one of the five languages taught — French, Spanish, German, Italian, or Portuguese. The courses, though brief, are very complete, covering everything from the fundamental vocabularies and verb conjugations to more complex translations and interpretations. Some of us have already had oppor- tunity to use the knowledge we have gained from this department. Our youngster cruise took us to Panama and to Venezuela. Having just completed our first year of language study, those of us who were learning Spanish had quite a bit of sport acting as interpreters in the shops and stores. Each year an examination is held by the department to determine which members of the graduating class will qualify as translators or interpreters. The fact that a midshipman has qual- ified in one of these capacities is en- tered on his record and aids him materially when he becomes an officer — one of the practical benefits of our study- ing " Dago. " A . • ' ■HpihV EVEN IN LANGUAGE CLASSES, one of our favorite pastimes was reading the little white slips and writing the correct answer (or a reasonably accurate facsimile) on the blackboard. NO MATTER what foreign language you may speak, one of these instruc- tors will be ready and willing to converse with you in your native tongue. 35 Miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiita HEADING THE BALL in toward the goal, Army gets offense set for try. NAVY BEGINS TO ROLL as forward centers ball to his teammates.

HAMMERING CONSTANTLY at enemy goal, Navy forward line gets set to score again. 36 M ' T T ' S called Association Football in the rule book, but to us it ' s just rough, tough soccer. Requiring just as much stamina and conditioning as any sport, soccer demanded scrap besides. It isn ' t easy to go in after the ball with feet kicking at any- thing solid. The chances are too good at getting your shins battered. But the boys who played soccer loved the game, and despite the inevitable bruises they didn ' t hesitate to mix it up with the biggest or roughest of them. Navy has always had good soccer teams, mainly because the coach is little Tommy Taylor. Under his expert tutelage the soccer team went up against the best opponents in the East, and although they lost to Penn State, the National Champions, and Army this year, they still turned in a record of five wins against outstanding college teams. Throughout the season Coach Tommy Taylor was hounded by bad luck in losing one or two regulars every game from injuries, but in soccer Navy still had a good percentage for the year. Back row: Robie, Ochenrider, Pittman, Cherbak, Bennett, Adamson, Chapman, Lowe, Grosskopf. Middle row: Coach Taylor, Sterling, Holmes, Barleon, Sweitzer, Behounek, Koelsch, Williams, Capt. Ziroli. Bottom row: Sellers, Woodson, Fisher, Crawford, Andrews, Dennehy, Lazenby, Godfrey, Shepherd, Sweeney. Members of the class of ' 43 contributed greatly to this year ' s team. Al Cherbak played a consistent game at wing in every contest. Dick Lazenby, after two years in the forward line, was transferred to center half and proved in- valuable to the team with his ball hawking, fast dribbling, and long range shots. Doc Dennehy broke into the lineup several times during the season and closed his care er by earning a starting assignment against Army. Bill Williams at half was in the thick of it every game until a leg injury put him on the sidelines, and John Shepard was another good reserve Coach Taylor could count on to keep feeding the ball in to the forward line. Bernie Bennett played impres- sively as goalkeeper, and Koelsch gave a good performance at wing whenever called upon. The many youngsters on the team gave a creditable performance during the season. For the first time in the history of Navy soccer a Junior Varsity squad was organized under the able coaching of Lieut. Bill Sweeney. Harry Sipe, Benny Lennon, Perry Hall, and Bert Thompson were the offensive stars of this team. The JV ' s had their own schedule, but their primary purpose was to scrimmage the Varsity. Their efforts will be rewarded, since from this team will come the replacements for next year. AL CHERBAK fights off Army to keep possession of ball. Al was intent on beating the Cadets for his brother, Vic, was on the opposing team. 37 --JI Back row: Cox, McLane, VanDusen, McPherson, Stecher, Anderson. Middle row: Howell, SoUenberger, Nelson, Sullivan, Clift, Glad, Major, Coach Deladrier. Front row: Seacord, Linnikin, Papageorge, Wilkinson, Keeler, EUerbe, Metzger, Walker, Blalack. FEMERS UIDEFEATED U DUAL MEETS ONE of Navy ' s most consistently winning minor sports is fencing. Last year a dual meet was lost — the first in four years. This year the team was hit by graduation, but still retained many of its best men — " Sleepy " Keeler, Gail Ellerbe, and Bill Metzger. Nowadays there is less seen and heard of fencing than there was when the sport was taught in classes, but every summer about sixty plebes find their way to the fencing loft, anxious to learn how they can become three-musketeerish. By the time first class year becomes an actuality, three quarters of them have dropped out. It ' s hard work, for the season is long and much training in judgment, coordination, and speed is needed. But the one quarter that has stuck with it has something to be proud of, for they have the training and experience which has always enabled Navy fencers to stand as champions. SABRE, FOIL, EPEE — Coach Deladrier could fight all three. He kept team pointing for their biggest match. Pentagonals. FENCING WITH DUELING SWORDS, Captain ' Sleepy " Keeler attacks Dick Walker who was drawn off guard by feint. FOOTWORK was all-important in fencing. Tom Wilkinson ' s lunge is successfully parried by Metzger in one of the many practice bouts. 38 GOLF FAST becoming one of the most pop- ular sports at the Academy, golf has in the past few years grown from a sport participated in only by the golf teams to one that occupies the weekends of many of the midshipmen. Encouraged by Admiral Willson ' s enthusiasm and in- terest in golf by making the course available to the two senior classes during the summer of ' 41 and in opening a driving range, those men who formerly had played golf a little and even many new " golf bugs " now turned to this sport for exercise during their recreation hours. With all the facilities of the Academy, including a nine hole course, a putting DAN HUNT, long driving Navy captain, played spar- kling game under pressure. WOULD-BE GOLFERS, not on team, got encourage- ment and instruction from Coach Bob Williams at driving ranges in basement. Back row: Clark, Gunther, Peat, Croft, Cassi- dy, Dennehy.

Last Spring the squad was composed mostly of youngsters, so this year the same team was back together again winning for Navy and Coach Bob Williams. Practice during the week was of necessity short with the course on the other side of the Severn, so it was on the weekends that the real practices were held. Led by Captain Dan Hunt, the team turned in a very successful record. Playing in other regular positions in the matches were Bill McCulley, Cabell Moore, Rod Dennehy, Pete Boyd, and Dave Maher, all far from being " dub- bers " at the game.

The latter group expended their time and dramatic talent in presenting the an- nual Masquerader productions. While we have yet to find a high- priced dramatic scout lurking in the front row seats during a Masquerader presentation, we have always been proud of the dramas presented by our thespians. The lissom lads with the falsetto voices who played the female leads usually stole the show, but the deep-voiced villains played their parts equally well. For one year our dramatists forsook their usual practice and — strange as it may seem — had young ladies playing the part of young ladies. They did very well, too, but that certain spark which had characterized previous performances was gone. This year the ancient prac- tice of boys being girls was revived — with no complaints. We venture to predict that this practice will continue to reign in years to come. The Masqueraders were versatile enough to present any brand of dra- matics desired, but to please their pre- dominantly midshipman audience they DIRECTOR W. B. Kirkland, Ad- viser R. S. Pease, and President S. J. Cowin of the Masqueraders discuss the reults of a rehearsal. THE TWO " GIRLS " of " Mr. and Mrs. North " chat gayly with their husbands-for-a-night. specialized in humor. Farces were beneath their dignity; they preferred a more discreet brand of wit as typified by " Tovarich " and " Mr. and Mrs. North. " Regardless of the type of drama they were presenting, all their eflforts showed the results of a lot of hard work put in during those too few idle hours when the casts could practice. We look forward with interest to the day when our dramatic stars will put forth their efforts on a far broader stage — the seven seas. THE CHIEF CHARACTERS provide a bit of unconscious comedy in their odd mixture of uniforms and costumes in the " Where did that corpse come from? " scene, as the victim looks bored by the proceedings. 40 MISICAL CLUBS THE orchestra is the only refuge of the classics to be found in Bancroft. Roommates and next door neighbors are not very appreciative of that type music, especially when played solo. Therefore these outcast members of the Regiment have gathered together for the purpose of coalescing their individual efforts into the finished performance of a sym- phony orchestra. They do not confine their attention ex- clusively to the classics, but sometimes delve into the semi- classical and even sweet swing. Like every other hall of learning, the Academy is full of men who long to express their joys and woes in song. The Glee Club offers them that opportunity at weekly practice sessions as well as in the annual Musical Clubs shows. The smallest unit of the combined musical clubs, the Mandolin Club is just a bunch of men with stringed instru- ments who get together for a good time on those long dreary evenings which are so frequent at U.S.N.A. At the beginning of each year fifteen men are chosen to form the NA-io. Every man works with the idea of enter- taining his shipmates, and thoroughly enjoys his work. This year the band has furnished many enjoyable hours for the midshipmen at concerts, at informals, and in Smoke Hall after supper. Fine individual talent, a distinctive style, and a unique attraction in the form of a solid sextet have made the dance crew a knockout this year. Whether you like sweet or swing, one of the musical clubs is sure to suit your taste. THE MANDOLIN CLUB plays anything with strings except- ing the violin family. GREG RELAXES from his arduous duties as President of the Musical Clubs. NOT A MAN in the group with long flowing locks, but the Orchestra goes in for long-haired music in a big way. Lovers of the classics, they look down on the swing fan as upon a lowly worshipper of a vulgar art. nimv Mi r .■ - » %?1 Ji ' 1 iyJ: fk rj W f 1? 1 ft L . m-»6 vT! % ' ' " -i ' w1 fj a ■ J i 4 w - ■r- ■ w Al. - it » « .« ' M ■ i H] l THE REGIMENT ' S FAVORITE svvin b nd, Llie NA-10, can play any kind of popular music in whatever style you may like, but they prefer to beat it out on the mellow side.

PULVER. j| | STAMP CLUB The Stamp Club is one of the few hobby clubs at the academy. Organ- ized only a few years ago by a few con- scientious collectors, the membership has increased rapidly. At the weekly meetings collections are shown, private trading undertaken, and general dis- cussions held on recent news in the field of philately. The Club ' s annual feature is an exhibition of collections in which each member arranges his exhibit to at- tract the attention of the judges. A suitable prize is awarded for the best display, which is then mounted in gen- eral view of the Regiment. RADIO CLUB THE HAMS of the Radio Club hold a friendly ses- sion in their club room. PRES., J. M. Weeks. V.PRES., A. M. Hudson. THE PHOTO- GRAPHIC CLUB gets exercise looking for pictures in unusual places. PRES., W. R. Banks. V. PRES., J. J. Schmidt. i t The curtailment of all amateur radio transmitting was bad news to the Radio Club, because it meant that the three big transmitters were put off the air. Operating was ended of course, but the men turned their attention to rebuilding the radio controlled ship, designing new equipment and polishing the keys for the day the ban is lifted. The under- class members have loaned the club several excellent receivers, so new plans are being started for establishing a listening post with the intention of joining an amateur emergency net- work. With this sustained interest and enthusiasm, the end of the war will find W3ADO back on the air full of new life and power. PHOTO CLUB The Photographic Club, although only little more than one year old, has filled a much needed place in Academy extra-curricular activities. The Club is an outgrowth of the Movie Gang and became an independent organization in the fall of 1940. Its objective is to provide an exchange for the photo- graphic work necessary to the existing academy publications; to provide facili- ties for photographic work to interested midshipmen; and to improve the quality of this work by the grouping of talent and the organization of material and effort. In addition, the Photo Club provides an opportunity for the develop- ment of a hobby which is national in its scope. t. ART CLUB Having as its main purpose the fur- nishing of illustrations, cartoons, and cover designs for the Log and Trident, and answering a constant demand for posters, the work of the Art Club pro- vides an opening for any kind of artistic endeavor. Increasing interest in the club has been shown since the opening of the new club room in the First Battalion Annex. The most recent addition to the club ' s facilities is a complete Air Brush outfit, including the delicate brush, a small air compressor, and all necessary paints for the brush in its many uses. MODEL CLUB Although the Model Club is not one of the major extra-curricular activities at the Naval Academy, its members are as keenly enthusiastic about their work as any other such organization. The club represents one of the activities which are very closely allied to the naval profession. Since its conception, which occurred during our three years at the academy, it has acquired several excel- lent machine tools, and it has received contributions from interested modelers, thereby making its shop very complete. Mr. Avery, the Naval Academy model maker, has helped members on several fine exhibitions and working models, all of which show excellent skill and crafts- manship. FOREIGS LMGUAGE (!LUB The Foreign Language Club is divided into sections for each of the five lan- guages taught here — Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, and Italian. Each section has its own officers, and there is a president for the combined groups. The only requirement for membership is an interest in one of the languages. Activities such as a foreign movie re- quiring financial support are paid for by voluntary contributions from members. Of great importance is the opportunity afforded the midshipman to prepare for his translator ' s and interpreter ' s ex- aminations. If successful, these qualifi- cations go on his record and in later years he may be called upon to use his knowledge. THE ART CLUB con- venes to discuss, with artist, a magnificent masterpice in the making. PRES., R. G. Leedy. SECY., G. Mueller. MODEL CLUB beams happily as it admires model made by one of its enthusiastic members. PRES., H. B. Keller. V. PRES., A. M. Hudson. THE COMBINED Foreign Language Clubs had so many members that we were forced to represent each section of the club by its president and the officer adviser for that language.

Now we begin to settle down and swing into our academics with a will. Con- densed courses — reduced from a four year span to only three — call to mind the fact that we are here for a greater purpose than that of obtaining an education. We again realize that, with our country at war, it is now 44 EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK, EVERY SEASON OF THE YEAR, TECUMSEH WATCHED US AS WE MARCHED BY more important than ever that we do our best in every class, every day. That means more time must be spent concentrating on studies and less time day-dreaming of that last leave at home. Study hours pass quickly, classes and drills keep our minds " in the boat, " and we concentrate more on nautical sciences than on thoughts of home, the O.A.O., and the like. We ' ve a job to do, and we determine to do better this week than last in order to be better fitted when it Eomes our turn to " fight the fleet. " 45 WE STARTED EARLY to ruin our 20-20 vision as we peered through spectroscopes to verify the laws of light refraction. WE GOT A LOT of laughs and a little physics out of Slipstick Willie ' s experiments. lte 2 efui ' Uifie4ii (U ELECTRICAL EIUAIEERIK " FTER struggling through a year of chemistry, most of us felt that nothing could keep us from those ensign ' s stripes. Then we ran into " Slipstick Willie " and the physics course. From vectors to sound, from light to magnetism, we worked on the assumption that " all you have to do is find the right formula to work the prob. " The renowned " Slip- stick ' s " combination lectures and demon- stration experiments were a constant source of amusement, but the problems and questions in class gave many of us sleepless nights. Few have forgotten the weekly Skinny trees — class musters, they seemed at times. When they had passed their last physics exam, the majority of the class heaved a great sign of relief and announced " I can ' t possibly fail to finish the course now. " Then we met Juice. Webster might prefer to call the course Electrical Engineering or perhaps Anal- ysis of Direct and Alternating Currents, but to us it will always remain just Juice. DC was tough until we met AC; single phase circuits were bad until 46 we ran into polyphase; it couldn ' t get harder, but it did. After a month of Juice, the insomniasts in the class gave up counting sheep and starting counting electrons. After the third month, we had worked our way into alternating currents and they could settle down to watching one single electron as it hopped back and forth across an imaginary boundary line. By the end of the course, they were so tired out from trying to understand the mysteries of electricity that they didn ' t have to count anything to go to sleep. Once each week the last year, we took our life in our hands and went to Juice lab drill. With a circuit diagram in our hand and hope in our heart, we con- nected literally dozens of leads to motors, generators, loads, instruments — any- where that we could make a connection. After a few small displays of electrical fireworks, we finally learned by bitter experience that motors without loads are likely to run away and that ammeters are not connected " across the line.

Everyone looks nonchalant now, but wait until the sparks fly. structors and from the knowledge we picked up in other subjects, we slowly came to realize the part played by electrical equipment in the warship of today. Slowly and surely it was im- pressed upon us that almost every day new uses for juice are being found on the various classes of vessels that make up the Navy. We trust that at least a small part of the facts and theories propounded to us by " Stuka Bill " and his associates will remain with us until the time comes for us to put our electrical talents to work. For electricity — as any electrical engineer will tell you — is the field of the future. WE HAD TO ADMIT that the Juice instructors tried hard, but after three long years we still didn ' t know everything about chemistry, physics, and the practical side of electrical engineering. ' S. 47 SHORT SKULL PRACTICE, illustrated, on sailing tactics was held during the week before each race by Lieutenant Commander DeWolfe. PLENTY OF THRILLS are in store in han- dling fast, heeling dinks only inches apart with closely timed starts and split-second finishes. RACES ARE WON not only on the water but on the dock also. Strategy for each race was planned beforehand and hours were spent in rigging the tiny dinghies for utmost speed. Front row: Heselton, Sterrett, Baldridge, Captain Kunhardt, Mouton, Herring, Froscher. Second row: Dow, Bennett, Bryan, Schert, Metzger, Kirtland, Robison. Third row: Booze, Woodside, Lister, Eimsted, Trott, May, Lt.-Comdr. DeWolfe. UILIiG EVEN after dark, they were still sailing. It was always a surprise to the casual observer to see a fleet of dinghies sail out of the night into the streaks of light thrown across the river by the flood- lights of Farragut Field. The sailing team had good reason to practice long and diligently, for, with the sea their profession and the Naval Academy their Alma Mater, they were expected to be good. To compete with the smart teams of Princeton, Dartmouth, Harvard, MIT, and Coast Guard, they had to be good. Ably led by Lt. Cmdr. De Wolfe, the squad kept the Navy burgee flying high with a fine record. Twenty- two new dinghies added to the fleet are a direct answer to an increased interest. The scientific tactics, the employment of wind and current to best advantage, the art of getting speed out of a boat, and the " breaks of the game " provide a firm basis for good competition. CROSS f UITR Y IT wasn ' t as though the men out for cross country didn ' t have anything else to do, for there was foot- ball and soccer, neither of which was as gruelling as cross country, or they could have just worked out in the gym every afternoon like many others. But they didn ' t; they made the team in Navy ' s toughest sport. Cross country required the extreme in conditioning and en- durance, and toward that end Coach Tommy Thompson put the squad through its rugged paces throughout the fall season. The results were six wins, one loss, and a fifth place in the Hep- tagonals against Army, Dartmouth, Cor- nell, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Col- umbia, and Pennsylvania. Captain Tom Turner led the Navy men to the finish in all the meets, but he was closely pushed by Buckwalter, Goode, Leehey. Simmons, Johnston, and Creamer.

Why, too, Navy waded through a victorious season in a blazing succession of triumphs. Navy had her stars, and due credit must be given to them, but the team ' s success was a tribute to each and every man who sweated his heart out each afternoon to elevate his team to the heights she attained. The man who stepped out on to the mat to represent Navy each meet deserved to be there. By defeating each of the four or five other men in his weight in hotly contested matches, he had answered all questions as to his right. Often the number one man changed from week to week. With our unexcelled coaches handling the wrestling strategy, Officer Representative Commander Decker took over the executive duties of the sport, scheduling an excellent series of meets; manuever- ing Navy into membership in the Eastern Intercollegiate Association; and arranging for four of the home meets to be held at night, placing wrestling high on the list in specta- tor interest and popularity at the academy. 5 ' HOP COMMITTEE MEETS TO PLAN ONE OF THE SATURDAY EVENING SHINDIGS HOP COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN, H. L. Arnest, Jr. IN every class can be found a group of men who make it a point never to miss a hop. As a reward for such faithful attention to duty, their classmates elect them to the Hop Committee and award them the privilege of wearing sword belts to each hop as a badge of their " profession. " They work hard before the hops decorating the dreary Armory or making last minute plans, particularly before special hops such as the Youngster Hop and the Ring Dance, but it is at the hop — any hop — that they really show their stuff. THE BUSIEST MAN in the Executive De- partment, Lieutenant Commander Parker sponsored the Hop Committee as a sideline. OFFICER ' S WIVES took turns being hostess at our hops, and donned their most charming smiles as they welcomed beautiful drags. CLASS RliG COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN, R, G. Leedy. THE class ring — the one thing that all officers prize as a symbol of their academy days. Starting with the class crest, the Ring Committee ' s job was to combine it with the academy crest to form a ring. Designs were submitted to three well-known jewelers, and soon the project took shape. During Second Class Summer all three firms prepared sample rings. The real thrill came on seeing our design transformed into a beautiful ring. All hands examined the samples and after the selection came ring sizes and orders. Three months of fittings and try-ons — then — the Ring, the Dance, and the Girl. A-» n CLASS CREST COMMITTEE In the design of a crest there are two main considerations — originality and fitness for the ring. Originahty, naturally, becomes more difficult each year, but the design which was finally adopted — the sacred ' " 43 " engraved on a compass rose with a background of double eagles mounted on an old- fashioned anchor and embellished with porpoises and the traditional swords — more than achieved this goal. As to the other aim — fitness for the ring — that was the province of the Ring Committee — but it is certain that nothing was left to be desired in our crest. Chairman, R. G. Leedy. CLASS ORGAMZATIfll First organized as a class with representative class officers at the beginning of Youngster Year, we determined our class policies by joint decision between the executive department and the class itself We were the first Youngsters to obtain permission to have radios for, after the early graduation of the Class of 1941, we became second senior class present. Harry Smith was Class President during youngster and sec- ond class years, succeeded by Willis Maxson in first class year. Bill Busik and Bob Besch served as Vice President and Secretary-Treasurer, respectively, for three class years. AFTER WEEKS of arguments over the best design, the Crest Committee finally evolved a crest of which the class could be proud (see photo). 53 liiiiiHl .,, ,r, , ' , .

Their literary masterpieces reach the light of day in the quarterly issues of the TRIDENT. £A mum umm THE Trident Society was organized to encourage literary activity within the Regiment, to foster and produce a con- temporary American naval literature, and to discover, preserve and collect naval literature now in existence. The Trident Magazine, published bimonthly, is the principle means by which the Society can carry out and fulfill the aim of its founders. Like all publications of this nature, the Trident requires not only a large variety of talent and support from its staffs, but also requires the aid of members of the Regiment in submit- ting original essays, poems, stories, and pictures. The magazine has long been noted for its fine photographs of the buildings and grounds at the Academy. In fact, the issues of the Trident Mag- azine for the past few years are a record of the changes that have occurred in the Yard. ADVISER McLEAN and President Zumwalt discuss plans for extending the influence of the Society and its activities. CIETY THE literary and cultural societies of the Naval Academy are united in one master organization — the Trident Society. Subsidiary groups are the Quarterdeck Society, Trident Magazine, Trident Calendar, Christmas Card Committee, Reef Points, Stamp Club, Log, Art Club, and Photographic Club. Each club maintains its individual identity, engaging in the pursuit of its particular activity at weekly meetings. The officers of the respective clubs have complete control over their units of the society. OFFICERS of Trident Society: E. R. Zumwalt, Presi- dent; E. J. Hannon, Jr., Vice Pres.; H. F. Rodner, Sec. THE TRIDENT MAGAZINE STAFF huddles around Editor John Gano and Business Manager Hamilton Ries to talk over final changes in the Spring issue. 54 THE annual issue of the Trident Calendar was much " idar — it was also a guidebook to events of ' of humor in its cartoons and wise sayings, idum pad wherein the busy midshipman I I mil I I (I I iH|i i| II 111 important things to do in the days ahead. Many a scribbled memo on the current leaf of the calendar kept its owner off the conduct report by reminding him to fall in with the watch squad or kept him out of more serious trouble by bringing to his attention the fact that he already had one drag for the coming week-end. The literary men who edited it and the artists who illustrated it received few thanks from the Regiment, but loud would have been the wails from everyone if no new issue of the Calendar had ap- peared to presage the approach of another year. OUR CLASS didn ' t have the pleasant duty of editing a Trident Calen- dar, but some of our better artists were very influential in producing the 1942 calendar. Observe the happy smiles over work capably done. REEF POHTS EDITOR, H. F. Lang BUSINESS MANAGER, J. E. Pickens Reef Points is an annual semi-official publication of the Naval Academy. All plebes are required to be familiar with its contents, which includes general information about the academy and the Navy. This handbook is kept up to date each year by a staff of seven first classmen with a large number of assistants. Copies are sent by many midshipmen to their parents and friends to show them the academy surroundings, customs, and traditions. A plebe must know so much of this book ' s contents verbatim, and be able to quote them at a moment ' s notice, that it has been appropriately called the Plebe ' s Bible. A GROUP of Navy ' s would-be orator ' s discuss points of public speaking at meetings of the Quarterdeck Society. UPON THE SHOULDERS of this tiny group rests the weight of the knowledge which must be absorbed by the Class of Nineteen Hundred Forty-six, as the staff of Reef Points talks over ideas for the plebe bible. PARTER DECK SOCIETY PRES., R. A. Kirtland VICE PRES., E. R. Zumwalt SEC, D. V. Cox Never before has the spoken word had such vast influence in human affairs. Men in all walks of life reach great audiences from the platform. This hits close to home for it is of great value to Naval officers to be able to express them- selves effectively. To develop the public speaking ability of midshipmen is the purpose of the Quarterdeck Society. Toward this end it has devoted all its activities, which include Interbattalion Debating, a Public Speaking Contest, and Intercollegiate Debating. mm wm n . - p! % .-.-, i,4 s ;h A DIESDM OF P-WORKS WEDNESDAY finds us back in stride again. We ' ve dragged through Monday in low gear, shifted to second for Tuesday, and by Wednesday we slip into high gear and run full speed ahead. Two classes make up our Wednesday morning, and we devote at least one of the two study hours to a hasty review of the past week ' s Navigation assignments, prior to our practical work that afternoon. AUD P-RADES After lunch, we hastily shift to white works, gather together our paraphernalia for the P-Work, and off we go, laden with drawing instruments, tables, celes- tial coordinator, et al. Over the public address system in roon " N, " Luce Hall, comes the word " seats, " and we turn to on another of the famous Nav P- Works. We hastily scratch our way through the first two probs only to have the speaker interrupt our train of thought with " Attention! Change north latitude in problem one to south latitude; change south declination of Altair to north declination in problem two. " Only too quickly the two hours flee past and we ' ve still three probs undone. I i J6 Now a dash to Bancroft to change uni- forms for the P-Rade. Cries of " Hey, mate, what ' s the uniform? " ring through Bancroft ' s endless corridors. Then, on the bell, we dash to Dahlgren Hall to form for the drill. To Worden field we march, then form in a line of company masses. Reports are made, the band " sounds off, " the Regimental Com- mander gives the order, " Pass in Re- view, " and to the strains of Anchors Aweigh we march past the reviewing officers at a smart " Eyes Right. " Our Wednesday work day comes to a close as we march back toward Dahlgren Hall. The mumble that can be heard as we troop past is probably the good word for the plebes, " Look proud, you plebes, we ' re going home! " For the first and second classes the day is by no means through. For them, it ' s out to town for a uniform tryon, to pick up the latest swing recording, or to take in a movie. Wednesday is all right in spite of the P-Work and the P-Rade. 57 w WE SERIOUSLY DOUBT that we will have much time for public speaking immediately after graduation, but in the future this experience may be invaluable. The talkative men finally get to excel: the strong silent ones breathe deeply and hope that their name will not be next. 7i4e jbe pxminient ojf CAPTAIN SMALL looks forward to a day when his department will again play a stellar role in the Academy curriculum. EHLISH, HISTORY, PROFESSOR COOK teaches grammar to plebes. Midshipmen com- ing from all parts of country must learn to speak same language. BATTLE OF JUTLAND sketched on blackboard and being described by a youngster was one of the highlights of the course in history of sea power. 58 sn ». OUR " BULL " INSTRUCTORS TRIED HARD TO INSTILL IN ALL OF US A SMALL PORTION OF CULTURE AO GOVERSIMEIT " IT is by no means enough that an officer of the Navy should be a capable mariner. He must be that, of course, but also a great deal more. He should be as well a gentleman of liberal educa- tion, refined manner, punctilious cour- tesy, and the nicest sense of personal honor. " These words from the pen of John Paul Jones form the basis on which the Department of English, History, and Government works. It is the duty and Herculean task of this department to provide every midshipman with the liberal education ' on which the most famous of all Naval heroes placed so much emphasis. During plebe year the English branch of the department gave us a short course in the fundamentals of grammar and prose writing, and another in a study of the finest past and contemporary litera- ture. In our second and final year with the " Bull " department, we studied the technical aspects of American govern- ment for one term and followed with a short study of the history of sea power, concluding with a rapid-fire history of the growth of our Navy. Due to the fore-shortening of the course of study for the class of ' 43 in early ' 41, our relations with the De- partment of English, History, and Government came to an end, as far as classes were concerned, the time being devoted to studies of a more technical nature. One final contact with the De- partment remained, however. This con- tact was in the form of After Dinner Speaking. In full dress, at dinner with the officers of the station, each member of the class was given an opportunity to prepare himself for occasions in the fu- ture when he will be called upon to speak. A very practical method of public- speech instruction with good food, after dinner cigars, and an air of congeniality furnish an incentive to relaxed com- posure before an audience. rgi;« ' ' : ' ; ' ' ViBVta " | ' sy¥Wf» »:- " SEIMMSHIP MD MVIGATIOI OUR double department is that of Seaman- ship and Navigation. Actually studied as individual courses, these two subjects bring the midshipman closer to the " sea " in Navy than any others. During our Plebe Summer, we attended Seamanship drills where we learned to row cutters, to sail knockabouts, and to observe the basic rules of the road. Dur ing the winter the Navigation branch drilled us in the preliminaries of piloting, position plotting from landmarks, and the reading of charts of inland waters. Spring brought drills in the handling of Y.P. boats, motor launches, and sub-chasers. We learned the handling of boats in formation, flag- hoist signals, and " man overboard " drills. In the summer of 1941 we started our actual study of Navigation, and our course in Seamanship. In the former we learned to compensate the mag- netic compass, studied the methods of position find- ing, and advanced into the study of star sights. In Seamanship classes we studied the Rules of the Road, mooring methods, and the other bits of knowledge that go to make an efficient Officer of the Deck. We may not remember all the details of our courses in these two subjects, but most of us will remember the struggles we had with star sights, ' |the Nautical Almanac, and Rules of the Road. SEAMO INSTRUCTORS TAUGHT US EVERYTHING FROM RECOVERING CAPTAIN COBB succeeded in teaching us two years of Navigation and Seamanship in one year, but we had to burn the midnight oil. COURT MARTIAL 60 NAV INSTRUCTORS SPENT A LOT OF TIME TRYING TO FIND ALL THE BUSTS WE MADE IN THOSE WEDNESDAY P-WORKS h k SECOND CLASS SUMMER we practiced making landings with motor launches until we could do the trick in anything but a gale. IN THE AUTUMN we climbed to the rigging loft to practice moors with a model under Chief " Shorty " Metzger ' s watchful eye. SUMMERTIME WAS ALSO the season for testing our abilities as future Officers of the Deck, as we maneuvered YP ' s around the Bay. DURING THE WINTER we played at war games in the rigging loft, practicing maneuvers in response to complex flag hoists.

SINCE three sets of stripers had to be crowded into a period of about six months, there was little time for each set to enjoy its enviable position. The first set, after returning from Christmas leave, found itself faced with the task of reorganizing the regiment. The let down which accompanies each graduation provided these men with numerous duties to perform. When everything was finally straightened out and the stripers were ready to relax, they were forced to retire to the unglamorous position of number ten in the rear rank. Their term of office ended with the big Washington ' s Birthday week-end. This set of stripers was unfortunate enough not to be able to strut its stripes at infantry drills, since they turned their suits in to the tailor shop for conversion long before the Executive Depart- ment even contemplated those sessions on Worden Field.

Instead of returning to find that they had to re- build from the ground up, they had merely to undo what the youngsters had done during the big week-end. Not only did they avoid the post-holiday con- fusion, but they also had the opportunity to take advantage of the fact that stripers do not carry rifles at infantry drills. This advantage, however, may have been overshadowed by having to start the regiment off on another season of these drills. But, despite all these ad- vantages, even they were glad to drop the sack in April.

AS every man is his own favorite hero, so is Joe Gish the favorite hero of the Regiment. His fortunes and mis- fortunes are recounted in bull sessions, at mess, and anywhere two or more midshipmen have formed a line. The Log, the magazine of the Regiment, puts the antics of the typical midshipman into print. It takes him to hops, where he is bricked, he is dragged by the Log READING from left to right, Editor Claude Adams and members of his assorted staffs ponder and talk about the problem of getting another issue ready for press.

M- m BUSINESS STAFF AT LEFT LOOKS HAPPY DESPITE FINANCIAL TROUBLES WHILE SPORTS STAFF APPEARS SERIOUS THE COVER of a typical LOG portrays an editor ' s first worry — how to get reader interest with a striking cover.

Twenty- six times a year the Log is delivered to the rooms of Bancroft. Twenty-six times a year the midshipmen see themselves mirrored in the thirty odd pages of their own publication — pictures, stories, car- toons, articles of professional and recrea- tional interest, sports — everything in which the Naval Academy participates is represented within the covers of the Log. Staffed by members of the Regi- ment, the Log has one of the largest circulations of college magazines in the country. This can be attributed to those few who lose sleep and academic rank in directing its publication, and to the many who contribute to its pages . . . and then there are those who sell sub- scriptions and solicit advertising, the Editor-in-Chief (who also sweeps out the office) and the plebes who contribute many well-worn jokes. Despite the cries of " It ' s odoriferous " and the groans of " Who wrote that? " , it would be hard to imagine Friday afternoon without the Log to bear the brunt of the week ' s pent-up criticism. 67 W mmr igvjgg j g ggjggBw aaa BUU ALL .j».. .■ i MAX BISHOP, Navy ' s Coach.

It ' s the crack of the bat and Navy ' s coach Max Bishop urg- ing his outfielders on as he hits them flies, each one accompanied by a cheery " Wasn ' t that a dandy? " Baseball and Max Bishop have a synonomous meaning at the Naval Academy. Max represents the spec- tacular type of baseball played by the old " Gas House Gang " and the " DaflTy Dodgers. " It is of little wonder that many practice sessions wind up in the dugout with the squad listening to Max and his tales.

MAX OFTEN GIVES LAST MINUTE instructions in the form of a timely story of the big league experiences. which poor base running, misinterpreted signals, and " Bush League Stuff " are unpardonable. With Captain Jackie Stowe as a nucleus, Navy looks ahead with optimism for a su ccessful Spring campaign. Jackie ' s play on second base is very little short of sensational and his familiar broad and determined stance at the plate marks him as a hitter to be feared. Then there is that familiar Greek, Lefty Lavrakas, behind the plate to cut off so many scoring attempts with his perfect throws. To complete the battery. Navy relies on versatile Phil Hurt who came through the 1 94 1 season with such an enviable record. For side arm pitching Lou Luberda usually gets the call. Lou ' s side arm delivery baffles the best of them. Out in the " gardens " a high brand of chatter can always be heard coming from right field capably occupied by Jack Brennan. Jack is noted for wielding a " mighty stick. " To back up these veterans there is Jake Rupert on third base, big Fritz Hansen on first base, and two sluggers, port- sided Paul Lacy and Al Lasater in the outfield. 69 iiii BASKETBALL THE most popular winter sport in America, basketball, ruled the roost in Annapolis on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons, when midshipmen, officers, guests, and spectators jammed Mac- donough Hall to watch a fighting Navy team in action. You could bet your bottom dollar that very few people from the Admiral right down to the meekest plebe left any basketball game without some semblance of a sore throat brought about by cheering, yelling, or just plain hollering for a team that wouldn ' t be beat. For two years we had seen mediocre Navy basketball teams have its ups and downs, times when every shot seemed to drop, but more often when the whole team was off on its shooting, and even the groans from the stands didn ' t seem to help. But this year it was different. Navy was once again back in the game, giving the best teams in the East plenty to worry about. BUSIK AND ZOELLER, together again on the basketball court, continued to pile up points for Navy. Coach Jimmy Wilson built his team around these two. Back: Kuntze, Assistant Coach Lt. Wolfe, USMC, Murphy, Cowdrey, Lindsley, Cameron, Coach Wilson. Middle: Patrick, Black, Busik, Zoeller, Lasater, Huntemer. Front: Spreen, Honour, Stivers, Lacy. 70 Vrait Vji . QUICK, ACCURATE PASSING thoroughly disrupted opponent ' s defense. Lacy passes to Zoeller, momentarily open under basket. HIGH AND FAST on the rebound. Early season weakness under basket brought disaster. FOOTBALL SEASON WAS RECALLED as Busik shoots pass to teammate. Quick breaks speeded up Navy ' s game. SPECTATORS PACKED ARMORY to see Navy quintet win. The class of ' 43 points with pride to the fact that during their two years of var- sity competition they dominated the various athletic squads. Basketball was a splendid example. In that sport ' 43 held four of the five first string positions and provided a vast majority of the substitutes. Co-captains Busik and Zoel- ler formed the nucleus about which Coach Jimmy Wilson built his team for two years. MOOSE McTIGHE added plenty of height to team. Under basket he took advantage of it and kept batting ball back until it went in. 71 ;g a w-:?? ' iVKgffi ? ' ' ; ' ' r i ' r;.;;i: ' ;)i ii:r3! j- ■ ■: ■:■. i ' ■ y.■■■?

The week reached a climax in the P- Work and P-Rade of Wednesday, and the remaining work seems to be all downhill sliding into the week-end. Yet we realize that the classes of the last two and a half work days are just as im- portant as the classes attended during the first of the week. With this realiza- tion in mind, we turn to the studies at hand. In the back of our minds, how- ever, we formulate our plans for the long anticipated week-end that seems so near, and yet so far. Those who have not already made their dragging plans for the week-end spend spare moments calling nearby cities for a drag; others more fortunate, spend their leisure time buying tickets to entertainments, finding a place for the drag to stay, or merely writing the ' pro- spective drag a build-up letter. ;But, in spite of thoughts of the pleasant near future, we can ' t seem to forget that job we have to do on the Pacific (nor the mopping-up to be done on the Atlantic) and we keep at our studies with a will in order to best outfit ourselves to be- come officers in the Fleet. 73 :w!8 rg» ' gi! ct»!airar«i8m!Mis3«85ffi8:!ariaiiapg y gsflgggg g wm AS IN ALL STEAM DRILLS, the whole section crowds around the apparatus while two or three ambitious engineers manipulate the various valves and take readings which slipstick experts will eventually turn into dubious final results.

CAPTAIN TEASLEY oversaw latter part of our engineering training, when we were trying to learn secrets of Damage Control. 74 v.. ERY early in the course of our three-year acquaintance with the " Steam " Department, we discovered that its sole purpose was to teach us the hows and whys of naval engineering. Sometimes during those long three-hour sessions over a drawing board during plebe year we lost sight of it, but even then our problems were practical — all our drawings, or nearly all, were parts of marine installations. Surrounded by drawing instruments as we struggled through epicyclic trains and the rest of the so-called iJfl fc Mechanisms, or buried knee-deep in steam tables and Mollier diagrams as we tackled tough problems in Thermodynamics, we never forgot the department ' s unfailing purpose. We learned some of our Steam the hard way, too. Is there one of us with memory so short that he has forgotten those fireroom midwatches on Young- ster Cruise? — they cured us, once and for all time, of any desire to be enginee ring officers. Four hours of tracing steam lines and taking salt pills, with the tem- perature at 1 20° and above, was enough to discourage even the most mechanically minded from thoughts of a career in the engine room. Youngster year we learned the true meaning of " sketch and describe. " We bored our way slowly through an ex- DURING THE EARLY PART of the Steam course we put in worthwhile hours in the machine shop, learning the practical side of metallurgy. " lite. efusAime4d MARIiE EiGIMERHG haustive (and exhausting) study of boilers, turbines, reciprocating engines, auxiliaries — everything which might pos- sibly be found in the engineering spaces of a warship. Second class year we breezed through Internal Combustion Engines in ten easy lessons, more or less, and then bumped into Thermo. Hid- den under the awesome title of Energy Analysis of Naval Machinery, it did a good job of baffling us the very first week and kept us baffled right through the last exam. Even the tough short course in Damage Control seemed a welcome relief Steam drills were varied, to say the least. From a two hour study of foun- dry work to a comprehensive study of tur- bine analysis we spent Steam drill periods collecting elusive data and making hun- dreds of often meaningless calculations. Those of us who understood the whys and wherefores of thermal analysis will probably enjoy our tours of engineering duty in the future; the rest of us will bone our M.E.I, and pray that we are given a smooth running engine. THEY ARE SYMBOLIZED not by an old school tie but by the way it is worn. These instructors taught us a lot of theory but will be satisfied if we can put just a little of it into practice. We only hope that engineering watches will be easier than making a passing grade on a Steam exam. rm 3H H ' ,f mm- ' ' V:: ' i- -■r; ' «i ' ;r.

From the day we took the oath as a midshipman until the moment of our graduation, it was with us always. The Officer of the Watch or one of his underlings checked constantly to see that we were turned out at reveille, turned in at taps, and well-behaved throughout the day. The department had a dual goal — to teach us how to obey orders and then how to give them. The former we learned the hard way — which of us will forget plebe year? The latter proved more difficult than had seemed possible; yet no com- plaints were heard about that part of first class year. In preparation for the long sea watches that lie before us, we occasionally rested our weary brains from the strain of academics and gave our legs a workout as mate of the deck. We stood other watches, too, but for two long years we passed " the word " in Bancroft ' s long, drafty corridors. First class LIEUTENANT RICHARDS thoroughly inspected locker top for dust with aid of flashlight, chair. LIEUTENANT MILLER instructed men going on security watch on the proper handling of firearms, so youngsters would cause no unnecessary casualties. THE EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT ATTEMPTED TO CONVERT CIVILIANS INTO NAVAL OFFICERS VIA THE MIDSHIPMAN ROUTE. sword watches were a haven of rest and quiet after long months of pounding the deck. The departments unofficial motto was " There shall be disciphne " ; there were those of us who tried to disprove it, but extra duty and week-end restrictions cooled our ardor. Its officers had the thankless task of maintaining order; they won few friends among us but they did their duty well. We were first advised, then lectured, finally reported for our mis- deeds. We suffered in silence; at least it was silence compared with what we were thinking. Now as we are ready to leave these guardians of Bancroft ' s law, we do so without malice — but without regrets. ONE OF EASIER DUTIES of Midshipman Officer of the Watch was making out conduct reports for underclassmen whom he " papped.

On the day we first reported to the Academy, it was the duty of this department to examine us and determine whether or not we were physically fit to become midshipmen. After we became mid- shipmen, we learned that this depart- ment was going to play the role of " mother " to us, in that they were to inoculate us with all manner of disease- HYGIENE preventing serums, repair bad teeth and extract worse ones, and give us a physical check-up every February.

Since his arrival here the Academy teams have been unusually good, and this season promises to be no exception to the rule. The squad is raring to go and although the weather in Maryland remains quite cold until late in March, you can bet your boots that some of the team members are out batting that old ball around even if they have to wear sweat clothes and overcoats to keep old man winter away. Seven members of the class of ' 43 form the nucleus of this year ' s team and ' 44 has a hard hitting bunch of Youngsters who last year went through an undefeated season.

Here is a game as old as America which the Academy has adopted and to whose fame it has added much.

Season after season Navy teams, ably coached by " Dinty " Moore, are on or near the top of a list of competitors which include most of the large Eastern Colleges and Universities. This year was no exception. Known as the " Ham and Eggers, " although the origin of this title has been lost through the years, " Dinty ' s " boys could be found any afternoon, hot or cold, wet or dry, going through their paces on Farragut Field.

I N G WIMMING is a sport that re- quires almost year-round specialization for successful com- petition. The season in itself was short, but long before the meets were held, the team was working out — swimming back and forth across the pool, developing endurance, form, and speed. The long, hard hours every afternoon of the week ap- parently brought no results, but when tenths of seconds were clipped off the time every meet, there was the answer to every swimmer ' s question, " What good is it doing me? " And what did the swimmers get out of it all besides the self-satisfaction of winning against keen competition? Certainly not grand- stand acclaim, certainly no publicity, for all that went with a great team, and the swimming team this year was far from being the best Navy ever had. Their reward was the physical development, mental relaxation, and association with team- mates and coaches. It was tough going all the way, but the team said it was worth it. Henry Ortland lost most of his best swimmers when ' 42 graduated early, so it was up to the coaches to find some talent in the two classes that were left. Average swimmers turned out to be record-breakers, and the dark-horses came through in Navy style. When the season ended, the swim- mers hadn ' t done badly at all.

Erckenbrack FOR those of us who felt the call of the sea even during recreation hours, the Boat Club was an important part of our stay at the academy. The numerous craft and our proximity to the Bay made it possible for us to enjoy sailing to a maximum. Although we spent our plebe year in cleaning and painting the ketches, we eventually worked up to the point where we were considered suf- ficiently qualified to sail the larger yachts. 83 The ketches in particular provided many hours of enjoyment, especially on those overnight trips down the Bay. In addition, we had those dragging ketch trips on Sundays on which we had a maximum of pleasure with a minimum of expense. With the club we navigated at night; we fell overboard; we ran aground — but we derived all we could from each trip. THE RECEPTION COMMITTEE was busy nearly every weekend entertaining visiting teams. Members were excused from meal formations and certain drills when athletes were present. ARMY GREY mingles with the Navy Blue as Reception Committee chats with Pointers.

They played a big part in the publicity campaign of the 1941 fall sports season, working on the public address system, compiling statistics, spotting for newsreel and radio, and helping to maintain a ship-shape press box. They endeavored to make the detail a year round proposition and succeeded in preparing those we left behind for the task of what might come the next fall, so that they might continue the good work of the detail.

The club has become very popular and the team has fared well in its contests. Of interest is the annual match with West Point held at Philadelphia on the eve of the Army-Navy game. The schedule is always full so there is plenty of room for new men. Facilities for play are good, as are opportunities for learning. President, D. R. Jones.

It has been a long week, a hard week, but the realization that we are now one week nearer our ultimate goal, graduation, more than compensates for the energy expended. During study hours we crammed for the classes to follow. In those classes we attempted to set down on paper, or to recite, the knowledge we gained by cramming. Our studies were hard this past week, but anything worth having is worth working for, and a commission is definitely 86 worth having! Now..,yi ' cek-end draws near — a tonight, the drag arrive omorrow, football game tomorrow, hop tomorrow night — it ' s not a bad life after all.

The more fortunate fellows with O.A.O. ' s or steady drags relax and enjoy the frantic efforts of the late drag-arrangers. At evening meal the mess hall rings with cries of the good word for Friday night: " Friday night — another week shot! " 87 7 e e4iJGAi4mnt ol ORDMiCE AID GPyRY THE only academic de- partment for which we have no pet nickname is that of Ordnance and Gunnery. It seems sufficient to say, " Ordnance " — no descriptive adjectives are required. Perhaps this rather unique distinction is due to the fact that ordnance is one of our most exacting subjects, in so far as technical details and accuracy of computations are concerned. Accurate sketches, problems involving logarithmic rather than the usual slip- stick accuracy, and minute details of construction, all point and aim for the most exacting results obtainable. Our first introduction to this depart- ment came in the form of rifle range drills. On these drills, which came during plebe summer, we studied and fired the Springfield service rifle and the Colt automatic service pistol. Later we came to the more complicated weapons — automatic rifles, machine guns, and trench mortars. On Youngster Cruise we met the " big brothers " of the wea- pons we had studied thus far. We had gun drills every day of the cruise. In hot turrets with their main battery guns, or on the hotter open deck in the tropical sunlight at secondary battery stations, we passed dummy powder bags or shells, or played the role of pointer or trainer. CAPTAIN CLARKE mourned loss of fire control equipment, which went to the war. THE INSTRUCTORS OF THE ORDNANCE DEPARTMENT TAKE TIME OUT FROM THEIR ARGUMENTS ON FIRE CONTROL 88 N,!- AT ONE DRILL we manned J.V.Phones and ready lights for practice in turret control. AS PLEBES WE LEARNED OF BROADSIDE GUNS AND HOW THEY WORKED SPOTTING DRILL showed us just how hard it is to tell how far off the shells land. FIRST CLASS YEAR brought the study of plotting boards and the deeper mysteries of fire control, including all the amazing mechanical rangekeepers. ORDNANCE Then, toward the last part of our cruise we fired short-range battle practice — the introduction, for most of us, to big gun firing. We began the actual study of ordnance in the summer of 1941, as second-class- men. The intricacies of smokeless pow- der, breech mechanisms, gun construc- tion, and gun mounts held us spell- bound and even baffled us for the dura- tion of the summer term. Then we took up the study of exterior ballistics with its complicated formulae, trajectories, and long problems involv- ing the use of rangetables. Sheets No. 10, probability of hits, and drift calcula- tions kept us in a state of confusion for several months. Next in the very con- fidential study of range keeping we became familiar with the essentials of fire control and the actual gunnery problems involved in " fighting the Fleet. " It proved to be a very com- plicated study but also a very interesting one for most of us. Torpedo control and antiaircraft problems followed the fire control study. Although we realize the great necessity of studying as complicated subject as ordnance, we leave it with the least possible regrets. TO BE PREPARED for any kind of at- tack, we learned to don gas masks quickly. 89 wmm -•-i»«gwmj!aiwia;sawB ' srsgiB ' B8 !Ji;aj«i ' -.

Boxing drills like the one shown here were a good fast workout, but noticeably lacking in cas- ualties such as black eyes and cauliflower ears. MASS CALISTHENICS, a part of gym drills, are held once each week. Midship- men shown above are doing " stoop falls. " NAVY ' S COACHES, under the direction of Captain King, had the dual job of putting out winning teams in the field of varsity com- petition and keeping the remainder of the Regiment physically fit. They supervised gym drills for V-7 ' s in morning, regular gym drills after dinner and worked with their teams during afternoon. Attached to the department was Medical Officer in charge of Misery Hall. 90 rstR-vii- , GYM, STRENGTH, AND SWIMMING TESTS MUST BE PASSED YEARLY TO AVOID MEMBERSHIP ON " SUB " AND " WEAK " SQUADS THE BOXING TEAM, successful during its two years ' existence. Boxing was discontinued as a varsity sport after the 1941 season. WE became acquainted with the " gym " department early during plebe summer and we never severed our relationship until graduation. Most of us never will forget those gruesome pos- ture photographs taken the week we entered. We all had to paste them in the backs of our athletic manuals, which we were afraid to open ever after. Those gym drills held on the football practice field during plebe summer were only the beginning of the drills we had during the remainder of our course. During youngster year we were even forced to sacrifice our afternoon " happy hours " for the sake of short gym drills which occurred several times a week. Fortunately this practice was ended before too long. Before plebe summer was over we became aware of the fact that all the requirements to be met before gradua- tion were not connected with the academic departments. On the con- trary, we found that there existed such tortures as strength, gym, and swimming tests. Failure to pass these tests resulted in membership on the " sub " and " weak " squads, a fate which was almost as bad as getting bricked. After viewing our posture pictures taken during first class year, however, we were all grateful for what the gym department had done for us. We just hope that our lives will never depend on the climbing of a twenty-foot rope or the swimming of a distance of 1 60 yards ! I Mti0tfiKi«Fi«. ' m - NAVV wmmmmi BOXIH BOXING COACH " Spike " Webb poses beside his true love, the " squared circle. " Spike is prominent in boxing circles as pugilist and coach. ALTHOUGH boxing is no longer a varsity sport, it was one of the more popular sports when we first arrived at the academy from the view- point of both the participant and the spectator. During plebe summer we were provided some relief from routine by the inter-battalion boxing matches held in the evening. Our class went through an undefeated season plebe year and followed that up by placing several men on the varsity youngster year. In the spring of 1941, many eastern colleges began to drop this sport, and the academy soon followed suit. But despite this move, we still retain fond memories of formal boxing matches and of " Spike " Webb ' s talks on the art of self-defense.

FEW sports require the stamina, strength, and painstaking effort of crew. It isn ' t much fun rowing in freezing weather in order to obtain perfection, but these fellows go at it like a bear for a honeycomb. The only hard part about it, they claim, is the fact that they have all agreed not to drag during the crew season. This year only two classes will be participating in Varsity competition be- cause of the early graduation of ' 42. This may appear to be a terrific handi- cap, but from the looks of the boys right now, it certainly bodes no good for all crews on the academy ' s schedule. Lieu- tenant Commander " Buck " Walsh, one of the finest coaches in the country, is showing the way, and his boys are determined to show all hands that they can move along just as fast as that two ocean Navy of ours and then some. TIME TRIALS are an important part of training. Coach Earl Thompson checks runners ' time with Manager Burley. IN A DASH one of the important things is a fast start. Starting blocks help some. WARMING UP properly is one of the secrets of a good runner. A couple of laps at a fairly good pace with high knee action and long stretching strides are usually good for a starter.

THE Naval Academy can well be proud of its track team which under the direction of Coach Thompson has so far set a most enviable record. The boys won first place in the C. U. meet and took second in the Southern Conferenc indoor meet at North Carolina. With such a beginning, the team looks for- ward to a successful season this spring. Of course only two classes, ' 43 and ' 44, are carrying on in the place of the usual three in varsity competition, but from all indications it doesn ' t mean a thing. . Spring days may lightly turn a young man ' s fancy to love, but there are men whose love of the cinder path is even greater. Day in and day out those spikes churn up the track, muscles ache and pain, the smell of wintergreen permeates the cool breeze, and sweat just flows like rain, but those are the things that make our track team one of the best in the country. BIG GENE takes a couple of practice heaves before a meet to loosen desk-tired muscles. A HIGH JUMPER and a runner are the requirements for a winning high hurdler.

It wasn ' t an attack on the Radio Station, but just the outdoor rifle team keeping in practice for their matches with the crack service teams of the country. Navy had some of the best shots in the Marine Corps for instructors, and the ma- terial they had to work with had every reason to be the best. The resuh was that before the sport had to be discontinued because of lack of ammunition, the rifle team could be de- pended on to bring home the bacon every Saturday. Front row: Lt.

THE newest sport to make its appearance in Navy Athletic circles was small bore pistol. Enthusiastic hundreds wel- comed the decision to form a team, for the drills on the rifle range Youngster year didn ' t begin to satisfy the desire to learn to shoot the automatics. The early turnout was far above the capacity of the pistol gallery, so the fight for the regular positions on the team was hotly contested. Gradually the target holes centered in smaller groups, and by the time matches started the team had its sights set for a good season. Although the two upper classes won positions on the squad, plebes were encouraged to continue their practice on the side, as most of the team was in the graduating class. FUNDAMENTALS were learned plebe summer on rifle range. The experts usually went out for team. IN the din of ear-splitting .22 calibre explosions and the tang of burning powder, a determined group of midshipmen has been forging, year after year, one of the best records of any varsity Navy team. And despite continued success, the small bore rifle team remains practically unknown to a ma- jority of the Regiment and public — for this is a sport which has no spectator interest. In fact, spectators are not allowed at the matches. Hit hard by graduation, this year ' s team nevertheless has done a great job of maintaining the winning traditions of preceding teams. The 1942 squad has put forth a maximum of shooting skill, patience, coolness, and perseverance, their only reward being the inner satisfaction of a job well done. Sitting, left to right: Lt.

The gang de- rived its name from the fact that it was charged with the operation and maintenance of the movie equipment that provided the Regiment with cartoons and newsreels every Tuesday evening in Smoke Hall. The radio-victrola in Smoke Hall was also under the supervision of this group. It is by means of this instrument that music is furnished for the Sunday afternoon informals when the NA-io is not in action. In addition, the old Movie Gang conducted the programs of classical music on Wednesday evenings in Memorial Hall or in Smoke Park. At present the Movie Gang functions for the purpose of stimulating and maintaining interest in motion pictures. Director: W. R. Banks. SO n D I) HT DIRECTOR : M. C. GREGORY WHEN we arrived at the academy, what is now known as the Sound Unit was then called the Movie Gang. Although this group is rather small, it is divided into three sections each of which has a separate function. One section handles the public address system on occasions when it is required; another presents the evening classical and semi- classical concerts in Memorial Hall; and the most widely known section provides the music for the Sunday afternoon informals in Recreation Hall and for the occasional evening programs of popular music. Although the Sound Unit has never risen to the heights as an extra-curricular organization, we can not imagine what the snakes would have done if they had not been able to rely on the Smoke Hall informals to furnish entertainment at a minimum of expense on Sunday afternoons. STAGE G A IG EVERY time a stage production is shown in Mahan Hall, the little publicized group known as the Stage Gang goes into action. Despite the fact that a naval career is in no way connected with theatricals, this group is suf- ficiently talented to properly take care of the setting up of a stage for Women ' s Club Shows, Masqueraders, Navy Relief Shows, Musical Club Shows, and the June Week programs. The manner in which the Stage Gang handles curtains, scenery, props, spotlights, and the like is almost incredible since most of its members had never had any professional experience in this field before they entered the Naval Acad- emy. The Gang, which operates throughout the year, offers to midshipmen their best opportunity for practicing stage technique and craftsmanship. Manager: I. B. Oxley. JUICE G AiG TAKING their place among the unsung heroes of Mahan Hall are the members of the Electrical Gang. It is made up of midshipmen who want to meet amps and volts on equal footing, and peer into the unknown. Their primary purpose is to furnish the electrical effects for midshipman stage productions, and on the side they build those unique signs which have become a tradition at the academy as well as an advertisement for any current production. To see them at work one merely has to drop back-stage to the little room marked " Juice. " It is there that these juice enthusiasts hang out and tinker to their heart ' s content, and during the show season the place is the original mad house. But when the smoke clears, you can marvel at the finished product. Di- rector: R. J. Sammons. msmmmm m-Wh ' nn WHgii8siga ' ?g ' -K?;;yy- Tg;yyig;wT:: .

PRODUCED 50,000 POMDS OF BOOK MANAGING EDITOR, Frank Reh, had tough job of keeping staff working smoothly. He read, checked and revised 400 pages of copy, captions. EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, Sleepy Keeler, with Busi- ness Manager was elected by class. He developed theme, handled bulk of business with contractors. WHEN the plans for the 1943 Lucky Bag were made, the war had not yet come close and all preparations were made with the idea of graduating in 1943. After consultation with the Executive Department the class decided to have an election for Editor-in-Chief. This parliamentary episode resulting in putting the sack in the capable hands of Owen Keeler. Sleepy then picked a staff and work began. Then the news came that ' 43 was to be the first three year class since World War I. VOLONTE, RIBLETT, AND GOULD collaborated on Mon- day through Friday section, got it to press on deadline, worked afternoon, evenings before and after taps, and week-ends. This, to most of the class meant harder work on more concentrated study schedules, but also meant something more to the Lucky Bag staff. It meant that in addition to doing four years academic work in three years they would also have to do three years of publication work in two years. This required a perfectly coordinated system with the utmost of cooperation. Then began the actual work of publication. Time brought out faults in the organization; experience showed the remedy. SPORTS EDITOR, Art Sibold, had no section of his own but handled all PEARLY GATES ha pleasant June Week tas Helped photo pretty dra§ JdiU- ' ■!(§! ' • sVr- T EDITORIAL STAFF included members of all three classes. Young- sters and Plebes had a larger share in production of ' 43 Lucky Bag than in any previous one. Young- sters took over the editor ' s job for a week at a time, and the experience gained should improve future books. COMMANDER COMP, Officer Representative, guided staff over difficulties. SHORTY RATHBUN searched Bancroft for old pictures for Plebe Year. JOHN QUIRK displayed talents portraying our social life in Week-end Section. BIOGRAPHY COMMITTEE consisting of Burnett, Julian, Huber, Phillips, Rupert, Fish, Bennett handled over half of pages in book. Biographies had to be written to close word count. Big headache was getting roommates to write. each mistake, although ' | tei v ,£emfi di £ d--jyJ Bsn and valuable days of vorl in »iflBBffRrialrea dy shortened To aile M|||li»TS condition in future pubHcations a system was worked out to include under- as associate members of the staff. After the inertia was overcome and momentum picked up, things rolled along relatively smoothly. Work was being done, copy was being written, pictures were being taken, proofs were coming back from the printer, and each finished page was one step closer to a completed book. Work, sweat, aptitude, and, not to forget an item that assumed almost astronomical proportions, class numbers were all part of the publication of the book. It was, however, valuable experience and led to the making of many invaluable friends outside of the Naval service. These men, represent- atives of the several firms that contracted to publish the book were invaluable in the assistance they rendered and they are fully as responsible as anyone for making the 1 943 Lucky Bag. ED ROBIE, Associate Busi- ness Manager, aided campaign. STAN COWIN, Circulation boss, boosted sales to new high. BUSINESS MANAGER Jack Barrett had extra expenses of early graduation and rising cost. Circulation and ads were sources of income. DEALT IN HIGH WUim ALONG with the editorial election the class decided that the 1943 Lucky Bag ought to have a Business Manager. They felt that they could put all their financial trust in Jack Barrett and told him so through the medium of a ballot. Soon after the election the business staflT and all its various branches were organized. They got ready for work only to find that all the work that could be done at that early stage was planning and building pipe dreams of possible sources of revenue. The factor that held up production was that the preceding class had not yet graduated and no contracts of any sort TOUGHEST JOB on staff went to Photographic Editor, Bob Kunhardt. He was responsible for scheduling and taking of over 1,200 pictures, many of which had to be retaken. He was assisted by Photographic Staff at the right. ItSKrkUXMteisrKSHInSllOl « Vji -»« could be let, nor could any advertising or copies of the book be sold. It was a difficult situation at best and required large quantities of the saintly virtue of patience. The staff held up well, and profited by the little extra time because when the barriers were rolled back the staff began to roll forward. So well did they do their job that in spite of unsettled conditions, rising prices, smaller number of midshipmen at the Academy, and income taxes they kept the book on the blue side of the ledger. As soon as it was possible a large scale national advertising campaign went into action. Old fields were used as a starter, and when the campaign got underway, virgin territory was exploited. Energetic leadership plus very close cooperation MUCH OFFICE WORK was required to produce Bag. Plebe Farrell did large share, Adrian and Lang wrote sports copy, Zechella filed identifications. Business board, left, sent out thousands of letters. between the members of the staff made the campaign a success and brought more results than had been expected. With the advertising ball rolling the circulation staff began devoting all kinds of spare time to a little advertising cam- paign of their own to promote Regimental sales. How well they put the book across can be seen from the fact that by the time they were almost ready to secure they had exhausted the whole of the printer ' s supply of paper allotted to the Lucky Bag. Since the world conditions made it necessary for the government to ration paper it was impossible to go on from there. In every business venture there are two separate phases: production, and financing. How well the venture comes out depends largely on how well the two units coooperate. Close cooperation and understanding of mutual problems are necessary and it is only through the realization of both these factors that can result in a book like the 1943 Lucky Bag. CIRCULATION even though book STAFF had a representative in each company. Efficiently managed by Cowin, they boosted circulation to beat previous records cost dollar more and regiment was smaller. Higher income made better book possible. Star salesmen, Smith and Devlin. S ' S " § J i _ p •SL 1 w- w ' f! ¥tW ' V ' ? ' W . • • • • 4t i .■.

" HERALDS BEGIN- NING OF ANOTHER DRAGGING WEEK-END ► mm WIJOME OUT OF THE SHELL THE doldrums are passed, studies become a forgotten nightmare, and there is nothing more serious on the mind of the midshipman than having a wonderful time with his favorite drag. On these pages we make a brief outhne of one dragging week-end, our own worm ' s-eye-view of the fun and festivities. The pictures have been taken at various times throughout the making of the Lucky Bag. You will see both second- and first-class stripes on our classmates and also both blue- and white-cap covers. But that doesn ' t make any difference. It is often said, " Dragging week-ends at the Academy are all alike. " And that ' s true enough; they are all wonderful, and we never tire of dragging. til M : .■■. -:«; -« =| ■■ : ;?«=iMi!««?» l)lffa■«B?:j HIGHLIGHT of fall week-ending was attendance of football games. IN MISERY HALL, Doc Dana and attendants patched up " charlie horses, " ankles, and various other ailments after rough workout. WE SEE OIE OF MVY ' S GREATEST FOOTBALL TEAMS classes graduating ball season ' s co was playing its prospects th charged a ferociousne: their last We had WITH the two senior It academic year the foot- most of the varsity squad otball. Faced with these dug in its cleats a little deeper, and tackled with a little more at for two-thirds of them, this was to avenge the defeats of the past two years, ed NaY-Vg in its share of the games since our class became a part of the Regiment, however, except for Army, most of us had yet to see Navy triumph over any of the big teams of the East. Notre Dame and Penn, neither of whom we had beaten for years, headed our list, for we were sure that the Army would wither under our power for the third consecutive year. Practice started a bit earlier since there was no Summer Practice Cruise or September Leave to interfere. The squad was big, rugged, and experienced, and the sports writers predicted that Navy was the team to watch. The team ' s record proved that the pre-season predictions were right, for we went through the most successful season in a dec- ade — topping it all with a hard won victory over West Point. 104 To Major " Swede " Larson and his assistants go the credit for giving the Regiment a team of which it could truly be proud. Considering the limited time and the difficulties brought on by the condensed three year course, it is hard to realize how the coaching staff did such a fine job. They drilled the boys hard every afternoon under the lights of Farragut Field on the important funda- mentals. Their efforts were reflected on Saturdays when Navy ' s downfield block- ing gave the backs a chance to break into the open, or when the Navy line rose up to halt the opponents ' drive short of the goal line time after time. Captain Bob Froude at end and Alternate-Capt. Dick Opp at tackle were two of the best defensive men on the team. Froude ' s end was hardly the place to try for yardage since he was consistently breaking through interfer- ence to spill the ball carrier for a loss. Opp had the reputation of being the hardest man on the squad to block, so his hole was capably filled. Lars Wang- gaard, another scrappy end, and Bill Chewning, Ail-American honorable- mention tackle, caused plenty of havoc both offensively and defensively. The center of the line was well braced with John Hill and Joe Sliwka filling guard HARD DRIVING CAPTAIN-ELECT, Alan Cameron was poison to Notre Dame all day. He returned intercepted pass to tie score 14-14 in the last quarter. spots on the first two teams. In the backfield ' 42 supplied Sammy Booth, a hard runner and great defensive man, Sherwood Werner, whose specialties were 5 yards over the middle or high, spiraling, 60-yard punts, and Bob Leon- ard, the kicking half of the " conversion twins. " These, together with many others, were the men we all knew from the class that graduated six months ahead of us. ON DEFENSE Navy had two equally reliable teams. Enemy passing attack was biggest worry. BILL BUSIK LED THE ATTACK the second half against Cornell. His running, passing, and kicking, made him Navy ' s most feared back throughout the season. Blocking teammates John Harrell, Al Cameron, and Vito Vicucci opened the holes. Busik did the rest. Oi NAVY 34, WILLIAM AND MARY o Navy showed off its great power in winning its opening game from William and Mary 34-0. Before a capacity crowd of 18,000, the Big Blue piled up two touchdowns in the first twelve minutes of play. Though the Indians played a beauti- ful game, the invincible attack of two great Navy teams gave us the victory. NAVY 40, WEST VIRGINIA o With a powerful onslaught during the second half, Navy handed West Virginia an overwhelming defeat and established the right of the Big Blue to be claimed a great team. The hard fighting West Virginia team held Navy to 7 points for NAVY TIED SCORE after Army took lead in first half. Phil Hurt, who had played little previously, was rushed in and carried pigskin over after several attempts had failed to put it any closer to double stripes. Army kickoff strategy backfired, and sailors scored again in same quarter without losing possession of ball. m . ' :»J ' ..A-- .. ' .mj- STAR END, Captain Froude kept team rolling toward goal. MOST MEMORABLE PLAY in Notre Dame game was " Big Gene " chasing elusive Juzwik down field. Flathmann finally caught up with him when Juzwik stopped to sidestep a Navy safetyman. the first half, but the superb running of Busik, Clark, Boothe, and Werner, combined with excellent blocking provided Navy with a 40-0 victory and West Virginia ' s worst defeat since 1932. NAVY 42, LAFAYETTE 2 Before a crowd of 21,000, Navy overwh elmed Lafayette by a score of 41-2, gaining 384 yards with 15 first downs. La- fayette scored a safety by trapping Busik behind the goal; to which Barnacle Bill replied a few plays later by strolling 60 yards for another Navy touchdown. The two team power of Navy was unstoppable, and all hands were pointing for the undefeated Cornell team on the next Saturday. NAVY 14, CORNELL o The Regiment, in the midst of 45,000 spectators, saw a hard fighting Cornell team hold the power of Navy to a scoreless 106 BEHIND THE WINNING TEAM were Navy coaches Miller, Schwartz, Larson, Molesworth, and Welchel. first half with both teams playing thrilling football. The second half brought an unleashing of Navy ' s might that surged the sailors ahead with two touchdowns. Great line work by Chewning fouled a Cornell offensive in the first few min utes of play. Busik turned in an Ail-American day at running, and cooperated with Sammy Boothe in a beautiful reverse which gave Navy its first score. NAVY o, HARVARD o Harvard, the best of the " Big Three " teams, held Navy to a scoreless tie, apparently due to the Crimson ' s heavy line. Our most desperate try for a score, a field goal, was blocked by Harvard ' s All- American guard, Peabody, after Bill Busik had carried the ball to the 1 6-yard line. Navy ' s power was evident only in the comparison of first downs, 12-5, and yards gained, 164-80. The Regiment was conspicuous in its absence, where a little color and spirit from a Navy cheering section might have changed the score. NAVY 23, PRINCETON o Against Princeton, a lesser light this year, the score was held down to 23-0 only by the eflforts of Princeton ' s captain and one man team, Peters. The superiority of the Big Blue was even more obvious in the yards gained column, where the amazing total of 531 yards was run up. A magnificent fight over the goal-posts climaxed this one. NAVY 13, PENN 6 The Regiment was violently aroused before the Penn game, and they were out to topple the Quakers from the unbeaten ranks. Amidst torrents of rain and plenty of mud, the team did this to the tune of 13-6, by no means indicative of the margin of victory. Busik was kept out of most the game NAVY HAD PASS ING ATTACK TOO with Busik tossing to Harrell against Notre Dame. ' s ' v: " V5 - Front row: Booth, Chip, Busik, Cameron, Chewning, Capt. Froude, Hill, Flathmann, Donaldson, Vitucci, Maxson, Coach Larson. Second row: Lindbeck, Hunt, Harrell, Zoeller, Day, Donohoe, Ringenberg, Hurt, Anania, Lee, Wangaard, Werner, Gutting.

WJ LEONARD AND ZECHELLA had bad luck trying for field goals but made 22 extra points. yVY H-ARMl 6 because of injuries, but in spite of this, he engineered a 51 yard march resulting in the first score, a pass from Busik to Boothe. Howie Clark ' s running, mud or no mud, brought the second tally, to which the " conversion twins, " Bob Leonard and Zeke Zechella added their usual point. The defeat of 1941 was thoroughly and completely avenged. NAVY 13, NOTRE DAME 20 One of the most exciting games of the season, despite the wrong end of a 20-13 score, was the battle with Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish depended, with good reason, on the passes of Angelo Bertelli to keep them in the lead. Navy has seldom faced such a bombardment. At the end of the third quarter, the score was 13-13, and at the end of the game, the ball had just been on Notre Dame ' s 2-yard line, personally placed there by Howie Clark, only to be pushed back with three minutes left in the game. Navy ' s two teams put on an un- forgetable exhibition, and the score might just as easily have been reversed without anyone ' s being surprised. NAVY 14, ARMY 6 Early reveille, box lunches, Philadelphia, the Regiment be- fore 100,000 awed spectators ... it was here, that classic of classics. Army vs. Navy. A beautiful day for football. ., Again the mighty prowess of the Navy vamped the Kaydets from the Hudson by a score of 14-6. The first half looked " bad " for the men on the Severn, with a brilliantly playing Army squad maintaining a 6-0 lead at the first half Navy was at high tide the second half Coming from behind. Navy piled up two touchdowns in rapid succession. The first came as a result of a 10 1 yard continuous drive from the kickoff led by " Barnacle Bill " Busik, who placed the ball on the one yard line. Phil Hurt pushed it over for the " B " SQUAD ran opponents ' plays to get team set for big game Saturday. 100,000 SPECTATORS saw Army blitz push over score to take 6-0 lead. 108 IRISH RUNNING ATTACK was thoroughly bottled up, but Bertelli discovered loophole in defense when his passes miraculously found receivers in midst of bewildered Navy secondary. first Navy score. The second was some- what of a repetition of the first, resuhing from a 68 yard surge for another Navy tally — this on a " dazzling " end run by little Howie Clark. Leonard converted as usual. " Larson Luck " in Navy foot- ball was cinched. The " Maj " has yet to be beaten by an Army eleven. Bill Busik — Bill won acclaim as one of the greatest backs in the country. His triple-threat ability made him the star of Navy ' s powerful attack. He single- handedly drove the Blue and Gold to its first touchdown in the Army victory. Bill Maxson — Bill crowded through tough opposition to win his berth at right end. His jolting tackles stopped numerous plays. In the Princeton game he made a beautiful catch for Navy ' s first touchdown. Johnny Harrell — Fans heard little of Johnny Harrell because a blocking back gets little glory. However, Johnny ' s clean, hard blocking was vital to Navy ' s oflTense, and defensively he was invaluable. Howie Clark — At 150 pounds, Howie Clark shoved around heavyweights all year with an inspiring display of spirit, drive, and courage. His elusive running and his passing won him permanent fame. Jim Donaldson — Center is a tough position to play, but Jim is a tough man. JAPANESE BELL was dusted off and put in use after Army game. Youngsters rang it constantly 24 hours until team returned. " ARMY, ARMY, call the doctor. " Two in- ternes arrived to determine mule ' s injuries. INSTEAD OF PRETTY CO-EDS, Navy used five from gym team to make Regiment yell. NAVY TRADITION appears in the stands. His blocks opened wide holes for runners, and all season he never bungled a pass. Alex Zechella — Injuries wrecked an otherwise promising career for back Alex Zechella, so he was drafted as the ball-holder of Navy ' s reliable " conver- sion twins. " He recovered sufficiently to play in the final games. Bob Zoeller — Rangy Bob was a great defensive end as well as a lightning-fast, glue-fingered pass receiver. This flashy boy leaves a big gap to be filled during the ' 42 season. Gene Flathmann — Gene was the big- gest block in the 1941 stonewall line. Amiable and easy-going oflT the field, he became a terror to enemy backs headed over his side of the line. Phil Hurt — Phil ' s specialty was un- stoppable bucks over the center of the line. He was the boy who picked up that all-important last yard for the first touchdown against Army. ViTO ViTucci — Enemy backs were pic- tures of frustation trying to go over Vito ' s guard spot. This powerful " Flat- busher " also cleared huge paths for our own line-busters. " Outstanding " sum- marizes Vito ' s line play. Bill Chip — A rugged blocker and de- fensive back. Bill turned in a great performance at a spot which offers little chance for glory. His ability and spirit contributed substantially to the success of the 1 94 1 team. Alan Cameron — Al, a powerful line plunger, intercepted more passes than any man on the team last fall, the most notable being his 35-yard touchdown against Notre Dame. The captaincy of next year ' s squad attests to Al ' s worth to the team. ' " ag w, ' r ' wmm: -ii1! P!|T ; ; ;, FredSchnurr — Fred had the stuff to win a tack- le slot his first varsity year. He ' ll be an import- ant cog around whom the 1942 line will be built. Arthur Knox — One of the few youngsters to win a regular berth of the first two varsity teams, Knox played a consistently good game of ball. He will be a mai nspring of next year ' s team. Dick Fedon — Dick is another Youngster who won his varsity spurs during his first year. Ending with a brilliant performance against Army, Dick set the stage for a great season for himself next fall. AND THE RAINS CAME with First and Fourth Batts to Penn game at Philly. Navy ' s offense was unaffected, for eight times team pushed within 10-yard line. HOWIE CLARK, spark of Swede ' s other team, won acclaim of sports writers by running wild through Penn and Notre Dame. Only Harvard stopped him. ' M IT.. , .( i 1 FANS GOT GOAL POSTS after Army game as Middies awaited National Anthem. BILL ARRIVED in Army " Jeep " but seemed reluctant to get out and see game. ARMY LOOKED STRONG first half, especially to the 1,000 Midshipmen who made bathrobe and sweater bets. Junior Varsity Schedule Navy Opponent Navy Opponent 32 Pittsburgh o 46 Penn State o 40 Princeton o 35 Pennsylvania o Perhaps the greatest Junior Varsity team ever to represent the academy on the gridiron was this year ' s outfit. They put the varsity through its paces during the week and still en- countered little trouble in swamping the " B " squads of Pittsburgh, Princeton, and Penn State, scoring no points to their opponents none. Coaches Frank Foster, Tommy Scaffe, and Moose Woerner were all responsible for the successful performance of the team. Few realized or appreciated the work of these men who drilled the varsity for the big games on Saturday, but their work showed itself in molding a great Navy Varsity. no r..., «..., .».«nrnawoaiaaa!ifr«BrPBaaggi Utin THE GlNt-yil DIIIHe OIT OME on, chillun, yes dance!

Lt. Sima ' s Naval Academy band rates with the best of them. At each hop he ' ll play everything from a smooth waltz to boogie-woogie beat. There isn ' t a band in the country more versatile, and many midshipmen will swear there isn ' t a band that ' s better in any respect. Of course, the hops are extremely formal affairs. Jitter- bugging is strictly taboo, or at least frowned upon. One could hardly refer to these dances as " brawls. " Also on the minus side of the ledger is the midshipman ' s eternal vigil by the big guns cooling his heels while his drag shoots the breeze with other women in the powder room. But, after all, that happens everywhere. Worst part of it is that she spends her time (from all reports) talking, not about the academy and her drag there, but about the Dartmouth Winter Carnival or the wonderful week-end she just spent at a Princeton house-party. But when all is given up for lost, she sweeps up to her lonely Middle with a smile and a, " Sorry I took so long, " and all is forgiven in the pleasure of the evening. END OF HOP finds youngsters standing at attention for playing of " Star Spangled Banner. " But where are upperclassmen? Standing on steps by exit or long ago disappeared in the night. Tempus fugit. THE MAN HUNT takes an hour. Dis- covered at last chatting, drinking punch. THE music is smooth, it ' s your favorite tune, and the girl of your dreams is in your arms. What could disturb the bhss of this moment? Well, buddy, a stag can disturb bliss in no uncertain manner. " Mind if I cut in? " he says. Wonder what he would do if you said you did mind. But you figure, " Oh, well, what ' s one dance? The evening is young. " But the evening gets old fast, and where is your drag? This guy that cut in, he ' s your friend. He wouldn ' t run off with your best girl, especially since you haven ' t seen her for weeks. Then how come you finally find him in a most in- conspicuous place, instead of where you planned to meet him an hour ago? But you ' ve got your drag back, and that makes things right again. The band has been saving La Conga just for this mom- ent, and you can ' t resist. The evening is too short to be other than happy. THE FIRST CUT. " Joe, ole pal, ole buddy! Fancy meeting you like this! " MAD RUSH HOMEWARD. Candid camera suggests origin of term " drag. " EASY CHAIR taken. " When did that guy get here? Always slashing throat! " FLYHG SQUADROll THE tail end of the famous Flying Squadron. He ' s traveling the last long stretch across the yard to the safety of the Rotunda. Already the chimes of the Mahan Hall clock are beginning to peal. The D.O. waits on the steps, with watch in hand. Being late will cost a week-end. A hundred times he ' s vowed never again to be a Midnight Mercury. But every time, over and over again, it ' s the same old story. Wheezing and puffing across the yard like a runaway steam engine, and it all seems up-grade. Why does he do it? Because it ' s worth it, friend. It ' s worth all the agony of apprehension and of tortured breath, just to gain a few more precious seconds after the hop. DOES HE MAKE IT?

Nave was added to hold the Regiment as it increased in size, then Regiment was further enlarged. Drags find they may have to sit with midshipmen, which breaks no hearts. VISITORS do not soon forget a visit to our Chapel for Sunday morning services. The splendid picture to the left displays to advantage the beauty of the new Chapel, the arched nave and vaulted dome. Each week there is new appreciation of its splendor, and new appreciation of the fine music of the midshipmen ' s choir, and of the excellent sermons delivered by Chaplain Thomas, Assistant Chaplain Dickman, or by visiting clergymen. Most impressive portion of the ceremonies is the singing by the congregation of the Naval Adacemy hymn, " For Those in Peril on the Sea, " followed by the " Star Spangled Banner, " as men in uniform and their guests stand at attention and face the flag on the altar. SUNDAY-GO-TO-MEETING. All dressed up and no place to go. AFTER CHAPEL SOME drags attend Chapel services Sunday morning; most prefer to sleep in; but for all hands the traditional rendezvous on Sunday is the Chapel steps. In the time left before noon meal formation, they wander about the yard or head for Bancroft Hall to get out of the cold. Smoke Hall is the favorite hang-out, because smoking is permitted there and it is more informal, but this hall is a strictly first class rate. All hands rate the reception room and Memorial Hall, and parking space is at a premium on Sunday mornings following hop Saturdays. SUNDAY LUNCH is at best a scrimpy affair. But they make up in convivi- ality what they lack in formality. Hamburg contains enough calories to keep a drag living for one more day. .«. :... .:,v:....;„.,„ ;..;.,.,,:„,|.

All that matters to them is, is there a boat available, and will it take us out on the Severn and get us back? Those conditions satisfied, they ' re set for a swell two hours of sailing or drifting on the briny deep. SAILING. WHALE BOATS ARE FAVORITES. THEY HOLD MORE WOMEN SMOKE HALL. There is nothing so futile as a woman with a cue stick. U GOES THE REST " IT can ' t be over so soon! " But it is. Saturday and Sunday are winged days. But, drags gone, midshipmen will swing once more into academics, awaiting impatiently the coming of the next week-end and another round of dragging. GUZZLE SODAS and eat nut sundaes in Canteen.

HICKS ' sawasiaais mmmsmsmi MANY CANDIDATES stayed at Carvel Hall during gruelling three day physical exam. Most preferred the less expensive room- ing houses whose main income is from midshipmen ' s drags. BIGGEST BUGABOO of entire ordeal was eye test; hut this was only one phase in a physical examination which minutely covered every part of the body, mercilessly exposed every defect. WE ARRIVED SUMMER 1939. The gay- ety of June Week had hardly faded when the annual influx of candidates began to arrive in Annapolis. You remember how we came in, forty or fifty a day from every part of the nation; college smoothies, salts from the fleet, high school boys and navy juniors. Probably we were not so much different from the many who had preceded us; but in one respect we were a marked group. In that peaceful summer of ' 39 fate had already reached out and tapped us none too gently. We would be the first three year class in over twenty years; and when we left, we would be going not to the routine of a peacetime navy but to a fighting service. The first six days were bewildering. Our initial contact with the system was at the Administration Building. From there we were herded to and fro like so many four year olds while they " shot it to us " completely. At Sick Quarters where we took our physical exam we wandered from doctor to doctor clutching our record sheets. Finally, our eyes were refracted and we left wearing dark glasses. After two more anxious days we had been questioned, photographed, finger- printed, examined, reexamined, loaded with gear, and finally sworn in. Then, before the elation of being a mid- shipman had quite sunk in, we took a deep breath and plunged into a frantic three day period of stencilling and stowing. Yes, we were midshipmen, but alas, a very low variety of the species. Plebe summer had started. AFTER TAKING THE OATH ' 43 promptly began stencilling new gear and stowing it in regulation Navy manner. Biggest job was getting accustomed to many new restrictions, the iron bound routine. CANDIDATES were sworn in by groups of varying sizes three days a week. Generally we were all taken to the rotunda about 11 :30 a.m., where a brief but impressive ceremony took place. Soon afterward we were marched down to the messhall for our first meal in Bancroft. MIDSHIPMy IT had been a busy morning. We had finished our final checkup and filled out the necessary papers. Then, taken in tow by a second classman, we had drawn our initial outfits at the store and had been hurried to the barber shop for the traditional one hundred dollar hair- cut. Now at last we stood quietly wait- ing to take the oath. For many of us this represented the final step to weeks and months of preparation and hope. From all over the country we had come, drawn together by our one mutual desire to become officers in the Navy. Some of us had failed to make the grade. Others would drop by the wayside later. But for now, this moment represented the culmination of an ambition and at the same time the beginning of a career. But perhaps even then we did not understand how important this was. Many a naval officer must look back upon certain high spots which stand out in his career. His first command, graduation, the happy transition from plebe to youngster are only some of these. But there are few occasions in a man ' s life which symbolize such a com- plete change in his mode of living as that brief moment in which he stands before the Colors facing the fighting words of Lawrence, and is sworn in as a midship- man in the United States Navy. How many of us realized on that warm summer morning that we were putting the old comparatively irresponsible days behind. We were, in truth, dedicating our lives to something greater and far more important than any one of us — the service. Henceforth, our work, our play, our friends and associates, our success or failure would be integral with the Navy. We would learn to believe in the Navy, sweat for it, gripe at it occasionally, hope for it, and if need be, die for it. 123 PERRY ' S BATTLE FLAG with the fighting words that have become the spirit of the Navy. lil BjppiipiBipilliBppiiU NEW PLEBES double timed faithfully to all meal formations where they were inspected and marched to mess.

We learned fast, but somehow never became quite ac- customed to arising at 0615 and stepping into an inexorable routine that left not a free minute until 1630. We rowed cutters until our hands were blistered and our backs aching; we sailed knock- abouts; we fired rifles from every fiendish position of discomfort ever devised by- unsympathetic marines. We marched to everything and for everyone. We also began to wonder if we really were the cream of the crop as more and more of our new classmates went dolefully to join the sub-squad, weak squad, or posture squad. It was not long before we began to pick up the little things that are very much a part of plebe year. The Navy was extremely particular about details, details of dress, or locker stowage, or condition of room. Accordingly, we squared the edges of our bunks between two books; we obtained a mirror-like shine on our formation shoes; we sounded off to upperclassmen; we sirred all seniors, squared all corners, and swung our arms " fore and aft. " We kept our rooms and ourselves in spotless condition, and discovered the multifold complexities of plebe rates. Above all, we learned to take it. Under the pounding of the system some of us fell by the wayside. But gradually and efficiently this hetero- geneous assortment of raw civilians was whipped into a class. From the mutual sharing of hardships and good times arose a lasting spirit of class unity. CLIMBING up on the high shelf was the easiest of a series of gym tests which included running, jumping, and a hand over hand rope climb. THE POSTURE SQUAD were a select group who needed special correc- tive exercises. The one above brought grunts, groans, and straight backs. 124 i - - SAILING was popular. Almost everyone obtained a small boat qualification, and each after- noon the bay was filled with knockabouts and half raters manned by inexperienced but salty plebes. SAILHG FOR SAILORS AFTER the confusion of the first few days had passed, most of us began to enjoy the new Hfe; the drills, the regular routine, the food, even the running we received. Best of all were those carefree hours that began after drill. Tennis, swimming, softball, sail- ing, any one of a dozen or more sports. Many of us who had never had such an opportunity before eagerly became READYING a halfrater involved prelimi- naries. The jib often went on upside down. sailors in willingness if not in ability. But the summer passed very quickly, and almost before we knew it fall had arrived. We awoke one morning to scan black headlines of war in Europe; but a few weeks later something hap- pened of far more immediate import- ance. The Regiment returned from leave; the carefree summer was over, and ac ' year had started at last. ' ' - V v i ■ " 7 r:- ' ■ ' i ' .« : ' ■: y ' " ' . ' -- » ' i . Wk ' h I SEAMANSHIP DRILLS were a large part of summer schedule. Besides row- ing and sailing we w ere exposed to knot tying, signalling, and maneuvering. LIBERTY to visit Annapolis during the summer was very rare. Most of us finally ended up at a teafight or the local cinema. 125 »?

VIOLATIONS of plebe rates such as forget- SITTING on the small green bench was a ting to square corners rarely went unnoticed. pastime frowned on by the Exec Department. WHEN ac ' year started we learned what we had already begun to suspect; namely, that Annapolis was not always a composite of June Week, Army-Navy games, and beautiful drags, although a limited number of the latter did exist. Our main purpose was to become naval officers, and accordingly, academic sub- jects took up the major part of our waking hours. For the rest of our career we were on a competitive basis. We found out who were the savoirs, learned the dread of the weekly tree, the scarcity of " 4.0 ' s " and the machine-like ruthless- ness of all the academic departments. We also discovered that plebe rates were meant to be observed. Our in- doctrination went on not only in the classroom, but everywhere and all the time. In the corridors, in our rooms, at meals and formations, we were con- tinually being braced up, admonished, warned, or punished. Still, we enjoyed many good times. We found a large variety of plebe sports or other activities; liberty every Satur- day was pleasant; and the first class even became human at times and allowed us to carry on. EVENING STUDY HOURS were always subject to interruptions by numerous individuals on watch. When any senior entered the room we dropped stipsticks, came to attention, sounded off. Maximum use of our time was necessary to do regular work plus questions from the upperclass. Js6 KETCH TRIPS gave an opportunity to get away from it all tempor- arily and also offered a realistic touch of life on the bounding main. BUT FOOD TIME TO PLH FOOTBALL season and the away games were a lot of fun. Few will forget the spine-tingling thrill that hit each of us as we swung into Municipal Stadium for our first Army game. After that it was only a little while till leave. That first Xmas leave was probably one of the best we ' ll ever have. But all too soon we were back at Bancroft and facing a new year. JAPANESE BELL rang after the Army game for the first time in three years. ' 43 never saw Army win; acquired bathrobes from cadets. PLEBE XMAS LEAVE was short but sweet, gave ' 43 the chance to shed lowliness, acquire glamour in the home town as a midshipman. THE CANTEEN was always popular with plebes throughout the year. Here we could enjoy a sundae, relax over a skag, and forget plebe year. • yTT " ;v? Ttf " ' ' ' KVs ' ' S-wr ' !?Kwiffwsif ' ,?W ' msfi: .

They answered countless professional questions, learned about the Navy, the Academy and other subjects. They also amused upper class, when the Officer of the Watch was distant, with air raid drills. WHALEBOAT SAILING was increasingly popular in the spring. The more enthusiastic plebes took part in Sunday morning races. NO MORE RIVERS was held in a steady drizzle.

Ayers carried the bouquet for the color girl who was also his first classman ' s drag. WHITE CAPS ASD SPRIi G THE first sizable casualty list for ' 43 resulted from the second bimonthly exams which we encountered soon after we returned from leave. Then, dazed by the large numbers of our class relegated to the great outside, we paused only long enough to be hit again, this time by the February physicals. But once safely over these two obstacles the home stretch lay clear and straight before us. At the end was the golden day when there would be " no mo ' plebes. " Spring approached and white cap covers again appeared. The days rolled on, faster than ever before. By now, we the hardened survivors, were getting impatient with our lowly status and beginning to look forward to June and that precious one gold stripe. When hundredth night arrived ' 43 for the first time got a taste of how it felt to be " dishing it out. " After months of plebedom this was our night. Enthusiastically we made the most of it. It was a worn and weary group of first class whom we finally permitted to leave the mess hall. Exams again came and passed. Plebes took part in " No More Rivers, " held in a drizzling rain. Company competition became close and hot, and when drill week arrived it was a see-saw race between the second and the eleventh, with the second winning in a last spurt. Finally it was June Week. WITH SPRING came white cap covers, also sudden activity from the youngsters who unofficially aroused plebes at peculiar hours. FULL DRESS JACKETS, dripping with perspiration after colorful but torrid dress parades, were reversed, hung in windows to dry. Weary plebes who furnished much of background but received few of the pleasures of June Week looked forward to emancipation, cruise, and then leave. n . ..mm mi, . ! . ' :,-, FORTY GRADUATED P ' L E B E year was almost over; there remained but the brief ceremony of graduation. Ahead of us was cruise, leave, and two more years at the academy before we could take our places in a fighting fleet. But now we lived only for the moment. Under a warm June sun we waited patiently as one by one ' 40 graduated. Then, when four hundred new ensigns had tossed a geyser of white caps into the air we realized that at last we were third class. As one seething mass we burst out of the stands, boiled across the field, past Dahlgren, past the " supe ' s " house, through the yard. There, frenzied and snake dancing, with full dress blou inside out and caps on back- wards, the wave flooded jubilantly around Herndon monument. ' 43 had come of age. 130 ■WF. Vj .««-• m WE HUM nwmnu HE thoughts of all hands turned from fair maidens to buxom battlewagons and rumor was rife as to when and where our liberties were to be granted by our Patron Father, the Navy Department. A cruise to Europe was shadowed by war and scuttlebutt had it — straight from the famed circular file in the Commandant ' s office — that rowboats were to be com- mandeered and short jaunts to Norfolk were in the offing. However, June Week, with its rainy hop evenings, brought good — or bad, depending on which way you look at it — tidings in the form of the Atlantic Practice Squadron, the U.S.S. Arkansas, the U.S.S. Texas, and the U.S.S. New York, and ' 41 and ' 43 began to stow gear. Our last morning ashore we formed and marched to the dock, the band played. The Girl 1 Left Behind Me, and the launches shoved off — officially embarking us on THE CRUISE.

We traveled inland via taxi caravan to Caracas, the capitol, found the people friendly, prices unreasonable, the country a strange mixture of the ancient and modern. More hot gun drills and we disem- barked at Puerto Rico. The Squadron split between Mayaguez, San Juan, and St. Thomas. The nights got colder and colder and one foggy morning we lay off New York.

Note: to the Editor ' s knowledge, this statement has never been proven.) With the broken bits of our hearts in our pock- ets, and a happy air of utter dejection, we opened our cruise boxes and looked for a broom — and a plebe. EXPRESSIONS OF JOY over return were not numerous, but a few hours of sleep and a good bull session usually restored the zest for living. 135 CONTINUOUS NOISE of steam shovels and pile drivers marked THE SPEED of construction was amazing to all. The building seemed to grow by early stages of construction. Concrete came in big trucks. the hour. Big annoyance was the oozy mud formed by numerous spring downpours. FINISHED PRODUCT WAS NOT INHABITED UNTIL WE RETURNED AS SECOND CLASS SEW COSSTRDCTIflS DUE to the increased size of the Regiment, two new wings were added to the then enormous floor space of the hovel we caUed home. When we re- turned from the Cruise, the building had begun and we attempted to work to the accompaniment of steam shovels, pile drivers, and other associated noise mak- ing devices designed as hazards to study. We watched with keen interest the pour- ing of the concrete and erection of new scaffolding almost before it had dried. Unconsciously we cheered on the wing that lagged behind the other, speculating the while on what new and desirable features were to find a place in our new home. To study was well nigh im- possible with the engrossing process of building the wings so divertingly close. However, new decks were added with startling rapidity and the job was rushed to completion in little more than a year. Gone was the winding walk to the seawall and the beautiful terrace, but the symmetry and graciousness of Bancroft Hall was preserved. 136 l|jr. ' 4t. J- WOODEI SHIPS OD IROi MEW BEGINNING with the presenta- tion of the VAMARIE in 1938, the Boat Club began to acquire other craft which were worthy to race any vessel of their class under any conditions. Upon our return from leave, the HIGHLAND LIGHT, SPINDRIFT, and FREEDOM had been added to the collection and their ableness was soon proven. The VAMARIE was an old hand at ocean racing, exuding confidence in her every line and spelling defeat for rivals with every thrust of her sails. But there was a competitive spirit brewing in those new companions of QUEEN VAMARIE. They tasted of the same breezes, the same hands nursed their tiller and sails, coaxing the last bit of speed from gleam- ing hulls. Gradually they learned the jealously guarded secrets of their mistress and became in themselves proud, fleet rovers of the high seas. The three yawls, ALERT, INTREPID, and i " - OLUTE, provided us both with rec- reation and instruction in the handling of wooden ships and shaking sails, a far cry from steel ships and humming turbines. But a knowledge of the sea and its varied ways can best be gained by tasting the salty spume from a windy deck as you pit your wits against nature. So, the hardy salts of the Chesapeake tried their luck. SAILING THE YAWLS. They called it instruction. We called it fun. One of these good Seamo drills spent trying to put the lee rail under by pulling on various sheets while the instructor raved. THE SPINDRIFT with a spinnaker out and working. One of the larger ships we had in stock, a veteran at ocean racing, living up to her name. THE VAMARIE leaves for another race, beautiful as a gull, and fatal to competition.

Songs, cheers, and a few " bring back the bacon " fight talks by members of the team added to the excitement. DEBARKING AFTER ONE OF THOSE, CAN YOU DESCRIBE THEM, FOOTBALL TRIPS ENFORCED ABSENCE OF FEMS. WAS REASON FOR OVERLOADED MAILMEN FUL, FOOTBALL DRAGGIiG... FOR the sec- ond time in a year at the academy we rated dragging to hops. We returned from leave with all the new steps boned up and proceeded to pound the deck of Dahlgren Hall a couple of feet further into the ground. This dragging busi- ness was new to most of us, but Fate, Nature, and Woman ' s Wiles kept us from being entirely ignorant of the es- sentials. We became past masters at the art of dragging twice a month on an operating capital of four dollars. This Budget system after graduation was going to be fruit after Youngster Year. The football season was soon under- way and the Big Blue outfit looked mighty good. Practice started early and we returned just in time for the first game. Away games were more fun. Of course, there were cold box lunches and brisk little strolls at the end of snappy trainrides, but these were wel- come hazards to see the Blue and Gold in action. Some of us went to Phila- delphia, some to Princeton, and some didn ' t have a good time. But we all counted the hours until THE DAY at Philadelphia when one Army mule was due for one rough afternoon!! 138 IKftlk. »• THE DAY! BOTH REGIMENTS DRAWN UP ON THE FIELD IN HONOR OF THE FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CLASSIC ARMY CAME THE DAY and the Navy to complete a job only begun the year before. For weeks every plebe knew the days, hours, and minutes, we made plans, forgot our studies, impatiently waited, and finally it happened. March- ing into the tremendous stadium, hear- ing a hundred thousand people pay tribute to our team — we all knew that it was our day. The rest of the story is history, of a grim, determined team and a Regiment backing them to a man until the officials mercifully put a stop to further Navy touchdowns. COLD BOX LUNCHES were a feature of every football trip includ- ing Army. Lunches of cheese and ham sandwiches, egg and apple. YOUNGSTER RATE was to keep Japanese Bell ringing until team returned. ' 43 celebrated 14-0 victory by keeping regular watch on bell. DECORATED TREES were searched diligently, Santa Claus left no leave papers. Tinsel- garlanded rooms, lighted trees on every deck attempted to bring Yule joy to cold Bancroft. DURING XMAS chow was plentiful. Food and illegal radios made bull sessions lively. CHRISTMAS AiD CREPE " Christmas comes but once a year. And when it comes we ' ll all be here! ! " We couldn ' t kick, though. We didn ' t have classes Christmas Day! Due to the emergency, the Secretary of the Navy decided that it would be better if we spent " The Holidays " here. So we discreetly hung crepe instead of tinsel and went to a Math p-work the day before Christmas and a Bull p-work the day after! However, the chow was good, we had liberty, and all hands rated congratulations under the circumstances. BANCROFT CELEBRATED WITH TREES AND WREATH DISPLAYED ON THE FRONT TERRACE. CHOIR SUNG HYMNS I p paPH GRilDliniOi AKD RADIOS BACK in the middle of youngster cruise we received word that the Class of ' 41 was due to graduate in February. This measure was deemed necessary in view of the fact that the Navy, now growing at an alarming rate, was in dire need of new officers. How much this was to affect our own graduation we did not then know but certainly did care. Mid-year graduation, the first since the last War, differed little from the usual June Week ceremonies except that no Drill Week preceded it, something none of us regretted. Q-abtown was just as crowded, the Farewell Ball just as colorful, the cheers just as loud, but this time the mutterings of war clouds became ominously louder. However, ' 41 left, that is all except the " 23 Club " which took up residence in the Fourth Battalion, and ' 43 stepped into most of the former second class rates. The Executive Department re- laxed a bit their firm hold on us and we rated radios to soften that harsh early morning reveille. There were some of us, though, who couldn ' t resist those programs during hours that were taboo and they paid — for thirty days. We rated a table end in the mess hall and consequently more chow. New stripers tested new voices and new week-end privileges, pronounced both favorable. MAGIC OF RADIO entered ' 43 ' s existence after graduation of ' 41.

The Fourth Battalion was vacated for them and we shared our hops, meals, and academic difficulties with the boys. They had all completed at least two years of college work, but the famous System was unnerving when faced in its entirety after those happy, carefree collitch days. However, they found their places soon and left us in May to try their hands at being ensigns. Winter became Spring and we came out of hibernation. Madmen began to get up before reveille to play tennis. Those awful p-rades began to plague us on lazy Wednesday afternoons. Spring fever seeped in through every window and classes turned from math to day- dreams of the summer ahead. A new innovation. Free Sunday, was introduced and thoroughly appreciated.

Forty-three made the change from youngster to second class in one day. UWAO HOPS PLEASANT diversion after any week of strenuous mental labor, the hop took on added lustre in June Week as aftermath to a week of trial by inquisi- tion. Special dances, as crowded June Ball, exclusive Youngster Hop, were featured attractions; but ordinary hops became interesting novelties when in- stead of usual blue full dress, prescribed uniform was yachting dress (blue service coats with white service trou) or full dress " cast " (blue jackets and white dress trou). Lieutenant Sima and his hardworking bandsmen played for band concerts in morning, informals in afternoon, then changed to dinner jackets to play again for evening formals. Deprived of a graduating class by February exit of the Class of 1941 the Farewell Ball still met old standards: fifteen hundred couples in space suf- ficient for fourteen hundred. As always wearing of white mess jackets distin- guished it from all other hops; any man who could tie a bow tie was the man of the hour in Bancroft Hall as all classes dug their boiled shirts out of storage, hunted madly for missing studs. In other years Farewell Ball honored a graduat- ing class, 1 94 1 found all classes bidding the academy farewell as they shoved oflT on cruise or leave; June Week hops left them no regrets. JUNE BALL, CROWDED AS USUAL, FORCED COUPLES TO SPILL FROM DAHLGREN HALL INTO MOONLIT THOMPSON STADIUM MUll4JJ | MiP ip ilW» | JIJ»:l.a ii :f« smmsissxiasmiKifmK«m Z y0444iX2 ite l M0ft FIRST OM-CLASS FUMTIOi WAS CLIMAX OF JUM WEEK FOR ' 43 THE five-man hop committee, headed by Arnest, did a remarkable piece of interior decorating, transformed bare MacDonough Hall into a colorful nautical hop setting for this, another milestone on road to a career. Aided by Juice Gang, Department of Buildings and Grounds, almost every flagbag in the yard they completed the nautical motif fifteen minutes before hop time after being forced to abandon carefully laid plans for a Hawaiian background. For those who took time to show off knowledge, central flag hoists spelled out " Youngster Hop Class of ' 43. " Flemished rope designs, huge anchors, binnacles, ships ' wheels and bell added the finishing touches to what was, strangely enough, the academy ' s first nautical hop. Another first was sub- stitution of favors fo r program entertain- ment provided at past Youngster Hops. Some classes produced amusing skits, minstrel shows, or aquacades; Forty- three demanded permanency, gave class- crested lockets to partners of evening. Rain liquidated dozens of Japanese lanterns, left its mark on a thousand white shoes, forced committee to move the lounge from its sidewalk cafe setting to security of MacDonough Hall ' s first floor; but failed to dampen spirits within. Naval Academy hops are more dignified than most college formals; strongest ingredient of punch served is orange juice. The usual program was varied by congas, dreamy waltzes; the old ship ' s bell clanged out " Eight Bells " too soon for most couples. Lieutenant Sima laid down his baton, the crowd sifted away, and Forty-three ' s Youngster Hop was only a memory. NAUTICAL DESIGNS in rope were part of clever decorating job which included signal flags, huge anchors in picture at top of page.

CONGAING WAS EASIER with midshipmen wearing white service instead of full dress; but starch and Academy standards of dignity curtailed jitterbugging. RECEIVING ENTERING couples at base of giant anchor were Mrs. Wylie, wife of the Assistant to the Executive Officer, and Jack Barrett, of the Hop Committee. THEY ALSO SERVE who only stand and wait; while most of class enjoyed gala evening some had the guard. Watches were drawn by lot; Herb drew wrong slip. 147 SOFT LIGHTS, SWEET MUSIC PUT ONE IN MOOD FOR THE HOP RfilG XXiilO KETCH SAILORS enjoyed longer trips with much greater freedom than small boat sailing enthusiasts could hope for. VARIETY WAS SPICE OF mi WEEK SAILS DOWN, DIESEL RUNNING, KETCH CREW ENJOYED SUNNY DAY IN JUNE BIG events put Annapolis June Weeks in the news: graduations, pa- rades, special hops, famous visitors; behind this spectacular front the Regi- ment brought another academic year to close in its own way, more recreation and relaxation than is possible in ordinary week of closely regulated lives. In 1941 the United States was still at peace, and hundreds of visitors thronged Naval Academy yard; most midshipmen entertained friends or relatives, a ma- jority entertained heart-throbs. Reg- ulations prohibit public displays of affection, as holding hands with girl; most couples choose recreations away from watchful eyes of Executive Depart- ment. Most popular was sailing; acad- emy has fleet of some 70 small boats. Priority is by class, few members of ' 43 obtained boats. Members of Naval Academy Boat Club arranged excursions on battalion ketches; aided by auxiliary engines they could sail down bay, have picnic lunch, go swimming, enjoy pro- verbial sailor ' s holiday. Some preferred to paddle own canoes, rented same, and explored branches of Severn River. Picnics, hiking were popular with those who couldn ' t get fill of marching at parades; residential areas have not completely eliminated timber and open Aji .

Music and movies played large role in entertainment program for June Week. To display talented midshipmen to admiring fi-iends and relatives Com- bined Musical Clubs staged mock radio program in Smoke Park, offered varied program of soloists, orchestra music, choruses by Glee Club, red-hot jive by N.A.-io. Movies came on nights when hops weren ' t scheduled for upper classes, provided midshipmen with same liberty privileges. Sport events of week included season finales in baseball, tennis, lacrosse, golf, rifle, and sailing. Vice-President Wal- lace spoke to record crowd at Spanish Club meeting, started speech in perfect Castillian to amazement of midshipmen. admitted laughingly after breakdown that he was still a student, finished entertaining chat in English. Interested audience heard Bud Zumwalt take prizes as best speaker in Quarterdeck Society ' s contest for second straight year. Most popular pastime for those who, by choice or chance, found themselves without visitors was bunk drill, designed to conserve energy for leave. FOR BETTER FOOD rent a house, let mammy cook and wash dishes was advice of many. Some supplied boxes of cereal from the mess hall. SPORTS drew crowds, particularly Army contests in baseball, track and lacrosse. Here is what those who don ' t drag do for recreation. 149 am -jMmaamBmsmwm [ravK fw fiFs; S SWi THE PROVERBIAL STORM— ABANDONMENT OF RIGID STANDARDS OF ORDER DURING JUNE WEEK LET CHAOS REIGN M ARKIH TIME HARDEST part of June Week was waiting, particularly for those who had no drag or family present. Deprived of Christmas leave by academic speedup, all hands awaited longest leave in years, eagerness tinged with anxiety. Until June 2 odds were that all or part of leave would be cancelled. Habitually pes- simistic, midshipmen nevertheless con- tinued to sort and unsort, pack and un- pack belongings in cruise boxes, suit- cases, and stowages until last minute, when everything that wouldn ' t fit bulg- ing Gladstones was crammed into warped cruise boxes, properly forgotten for forty days. By car, by train, by bus, by plane, ' 43 spread fanlike over country, wrote finis to June week, 1941. WHAT TO KEEP was a problem. Typical table in picture at top holds portable radio, chow, victrola records, clothing, magazines. THEY TOIL NOT, neither do they spin. A good tan and hours of sleep come in handy on leave when midshipmen find 24 hours too short a day. JO Kffi RETURI FROM LEAVE MidUULiMfte4 Pne pJa l o inAi Bi upune i Qo44AAje AT io:oo A.M. on July ii, 1941 the first class, part of the third class and we, the second class, returned to Bancroft Hall after one of those short intermissions that make life worth while. But it was a long intermission, 41 days, longer than any leave we had been given before. Even more, the system softened to the point of giving us ninety dollars for our transportation and entertainment, plus an allowance of a hundred dollars for civilian clothing. A scout from Esquire would have benefited from watching that exodus of midshipmen. But if all time went as fast as leave does, life would be a very short affair. When our forty-one days were over we were well rested but still a little reluctant to give up our late hours, sporty clothes, cars, and carefree life. So Friday saw us with downcast countenances. But there were bright spots — a new rangement of classes that would all forty-five minutes of leisure after lunl and afternoons free after 3:30 were definite advantage. Being second seni- class we would have new rates an privileges. The fact that in one short year we would join the fleet was un- doubtedly the most important feature. For the fourth time we moved into new rooms. We unpacked cruise boxes, drew our academic tools, and recovered our uniforms. On the following Mon- day we found white works a convenient and confortable uniform for classes. White service for hops and liberties were cool and glamorous. They have long been the favored garb, but never before had we had much chance to appear in them. !lS is. ....f ' S: SECOND class year brought us some- thing new in academics. It marked the beginning of our real professional sub- jects. Classes in Seamanship, Naviga- tion, and Ordnance and Gunnery meant we were really on the way toward joining the fleet. In Seamanship we would soon be memorizing the Rules of the Road that had been brought to our attentions at the table plebe year. Blinker drills would replace the old nemesis, mental arithmetic. Besides learning to compensate a compass, Navigation was to bring us ten new kinds of time, to say nothing of a weekly P-Work that would rival plebe steam for ruining eyes. In Ordnance and Gunnery we were to learn how the guns we had fired on our youngster cruise, had been designed and built. We were still blissfully ignorant of the formula for black powder. The summer drills were new and interesting. In Seamanship we had bumper drills, practice in making land- ings on the Severn ' s shores. For the past four years, second class year has meant yawl drills. For some of the boat clubbers it was nothing new, but for the rest of us it was our first trip in a good size racing sail boat. The U.S.S. Noa took us out a company at a time to acquaint us with destroyers as part of the Marine Engineering course. Over at the rifle range we had the opportunity to fire new Garands, Browning sub- machine guns, automatic rifles and machine guns. BARREN ROOMS BUT DESTINED TO BE HOME. AS A SOBER SECOND CLASS WE MET ' 45. NEW BOOKS REPRESENT NEW COURSES. 153 THE EXECUTIVE PLATOON took the fourth class on the field and taught them to march. This practice served as training for both classes. To the plebes it was instruction in an art they would follow for four years. To us it was experience in giving commands and organizing drills. 1. HE Summer of 1 94 1 passed much more quickly than we thought it would. The drills during this period were far more interesting than those of previous years. At the rifle range we were shown the theory that went with the trench mortar, how a shell could be dropped on a blanket at five hundred yards. We were shown the .30 and .50 calibre machine guns and allowed to fire the .30 ' s on several occasions. The most popular drill at the range was probably the one on automatic arms. We fired the Thomp- son (Tommy gun) Sub Machine Gun that gangsters made famous, the Garand M-i that has been the subject of so much discussion, and the Browning Automatic Rifle. The yawls gave experience in larger boats to those who had not already sailed them. On balmy afternoons we would run up a set of sails and then vary the head-sails to see the effect. Although we were not senior class, as was the custom, the new incoming class was turned over to us. An executive platoon was formed from men in every company. This was the group that actually took charge of the plebes. They were given duties and stood watches, then when the plebes ' three days of grace were up, the executive platoon conducted them to classes, held room inspections, and taught them how to march. A COMPASS is not always correct. We learned to compensate one with models. SPARE TIME was spent in the usual way — four midshipmen, a deck of cards, and bridge. DEVIASCOPE DRILLS GAVE US ACTUAL PRACTICE CORRECTING A COMPASS 154 A NEW PRIVILEGE that was extended to all hands was that of riding in cars with officers and instructors. To the Army and Navy juniors it made week-end drives with the family possible. THE FALL TERM marked the end of white service and the return to the heavy blue suits. SECOND class year brought many innovations, rates, privileges, and duties. Wednesday afternoons we spent much as we had our non-hop week-ends. There were always records to buy or movies to see. One of the more popular pastimes became the weekly visit to our other home out in town. After two years of association and one of dragging, we found that the people of Annapolis were very gracious hosts. One of the new privileges that fell not only to us, but to all the upper-classes was that of riding in cars with officers and instructors. Since many of us were Army or Navy juniors, it was very con- venient. There was but one drawback, the five mile radius limit was kept in eflfect. This was but one of the regula- tions that underwent a process of loosen- ing during 1941. It became consistent with the regulations to mildly indulge in alcoholic beverages while outside the five mile radius of the academy. But here there was another drawback. We were only outside this limit on football trips and regular leaves. Another popular innovation was the " free Sunday. " Every Sunday one bat- talion was allowed to miss Chapel to engage in athletics or simply to exercise on Farragut Field. This particular privilege will always be credited to Mrs. Russell Willson, the wife of our superin- tendent, despite the official channels it came through. A HOME AWAY FROM HOME was found in many private residences. On any free afternoon we could be found lazily playing bridge or the radio. WE TOOK OUR PLACES, prematurely given to us in February, at the foot of the table. But now, arms on the table showed two diagonal stripes. 155 }3 l lg g |jfl j gg jjj|jgjljg{|gjj g{ gggjg gjgg[3 3 WAR CAME TO THE MTIOI an TO THE ACADEMY ON Sun- day, December 7, 1941, Japan declared war on the United States. That night the academy went wild with excitement. Immediately armed security watches were posted to patrol Bancroft ' s basements and terrace decks were designated. Mates began keeping a running information column on their black boards. Monday found the Naval Academy without a single visitor. Only escorted guests, civilian employees bear- ing identification cards, midshipmen, and officers were allowed within the gates. Shortly afterwards, blackout shades were installed in all offices, and opaque shades were put in the windows of the lower three decks. An air raid bulletin was published that designated fire watchers, and patrols. It assigned the first and second decks as air raid shelters. De- scriptions of all types of incendiary bombs with instructions as to extinguishing them were posted and read to the Regiment. SECURITY WATCHES with automatics made us feel mighty impor- tant. Hundreds of imaginary saboteurs fell victims to our blazing guns. A STATE OF WAR meant many restrictions to those in federal employ, Regulations required every car that entered the yard to be inspected. VISITORS to the academy were barred except those actually with officers or midshipmen. Civilian employees were required to wear badges. 136 mmmmt IWBUlLDimSitPPEilRED BMCROFT ' S FACE LIFTED THE two new additions to the Naval Academy were Ward Hall and the annexes to Bancroft Hall. Ward Hall was built because Dahlgren Hall was inadequate in so far as classrooms were concerned, also to provide a lecture room and a display room. Now all classes are held in the new building while the drills are still held in the armory. But the real pride of everyone who had ever lived in them were the annexes. Every room had its own shower and closet. The lights turned on from a hall switch. To connect on to the aerial on the roof, one had to but plug into a floor connection. There were lights and shoe racks in the closet. Lights at both mirrors enabled two people to shave electrically, simultaneously. Elevators just like ones in hotels were a joy to behold, but only those who ignored the regulations were privileged to use them. To be caught meant the loss of a week- end. WARD HALL was proof of the expansion of the Ordnance Department. Dahlgren had too few classrooms for four periods of ordnance a week. The new building provided these. 157 s ■■««»Br grTO!«B=«»«ll -T " !

There in the mess hall was one of the finer buflFet dinners ever served. We had arranged place cards and decorations on the tables ourselves earlier that day. About nine o ' clock our dinner music ended and the couples walked through the first battalion across the colonnades into MacDonough Hall. The entire building was decorated along a Christmas theme; beautifially orna- mented trees were everywhere. All evening couples lined the upper floor, waiting their turn in the ring. Ac- cording to tradition our rings were bathed in water twenty four hours fi " esh firom both oceans and the Caribbean. And we were all very envious of those who gave miniatures to chosen ones there in the ring. -fl lV Hifl B ' k B m 1 i BI Hr i r L Hr!.

DANCERS WAITED outside make-shift studio and gave photographer a busy night. CLIB MA(]DOPllliH WITH SIMA OUR class was not allowed a name band for the Ring Dance, but no one would admit that more danceable music could be had at any price. The most popular number of the evening was a soft sweet medley played with dimmed lights. AMONG the fortunate were Mary Black, Robbins, Patricia Compton, and Walker. yf iS !k 7 ' 42 GAVE ITS LAST CHEER. Secretary Frank Knox, cautioned them about what lay ahead and sent them to the fleet to practice results of three and a half years ' study and training. ENTIRE REGIMENT STOOD AT PARADE REST WHILE AWARDS WERE MADE SOMETHING NEW HAS BEEN ADDED. A ring and a little silk but what a difference. A PERFECT DAY IN the space of 24 hours about everything favorable that can happen to a midshipman happened to us. In the morning, ' 42 graduated and we became first class. That night we got our rings at the Ring Dance. The next morning we left on a 14 day leave. The only thing left to happen was for the U.S.N. A. to become coed. WE PACKED our bags and took a vaca- tion. This leave was to be the last one for us. 162 CONFIDENTIAL LOCKERS proved to be a stowage place for more than publications. Toasters and Java pots also found safety. FIRST CLASS RATES, and privilege of hiring corridor-boys to make up rooms, came to us. Thus ended years of housekeeping. SPOILS FELL TO THE FIRST (ILASS FIRST class year finally arrived. Now after breakfast when we came back to our rooms, the bunks were made and the place cleaned. It was also nice having plebe valets to hold clothes in the mad dash for formation. Marks dropped, not because the work was harder, but because it ' s difficult to study with a radio on. Smoking in the corridor was one rate that was always carried farther than regulations pro- vided, i c watches were more interest- ing than any preceding, but it was easy to make a mistake. Extra duty had ruined its last after- noon. Week-end confinements and loss- es of liberty and privileges replaced the Extra Duty squad. Week-end liberties are one of the finer institutions at the academy. We didn ' t get our first until Washington ' s Birthday. We were also given Memorial Day week-end and one other to be taken when desired. FIRST FORMATION could hardly have been called a success. SEVEN HUNDRED reserves came to Naval Academy in February to Some of us wore new stripes, other less fortunate wore old markings. be trained for commissions. Again they occupied fourth battalion wing.

Other necessities for the future were rainclothes, white service, khakis, caps, and accessories. We shopped around trying to get the best prices, thinking we were beating the tailors, but as has happened for years, the tailors got the best of it. Some of our services and overcoat could be converted. That along with the savings on full dress, not required during war, saved us a con- siderable amount. These were only a part of the preparations we made, an- ticipating the day when our mothers would attach one ensign shoulder mark, our O.A.O. ' s the other. 164 l g ™ gggJlgJ gg jjj J y VglggggggJ SP -fi. ML Si ei Mouse Mulvanity» » .

Call him Frank, " Jess, " or just " Hot, " and his tow head will always turn your way. His principal interest is photography and he will cheerfully ruin any film you care to have him develop. When not embroiled in hypo, he can be found playing football, basket- ball or getting in some extra-curricular rifle practice. His high class standing indicates that he will be a definite asset to the service. We will all be glad to see him in the fleet. Ov ROBERT BENSON ADAMS Lebanon, Pennsylvania ' ut of the Pennsylvania steel mills, " Rod " came to the Academy via Penn State. Easygoing, quiet, well-mannered, agreeable, and handsome — these are but a few of his qualities. Although not a member of any athletic team, he was a constant surprise when playing any game. His main sports were tennis and golf, where he could hold his own with the best. His talents had only to be uncovered to be appreciated. Academics never seemed to hamper his thoughts nearly as much as the five mile radius and the nearness of Washington. " Rod " has the qualities necessary for success in the service and he ' ll use them with the best of ability. STEVEN NICHOLAS ANASTASION -pv New Haven, Connecticut 1 lebe year, Steve took things easy and consequently was a regular member of the extra-duty squad. However, the next two years were diflferent. He realized that a continuous date with Miss Springfield was very monotonous. Being an ambitious lad, Steve tried his hand at lacrosse, baseball, starring in academics, and playing a fiddle; the latter two being most successful. Most of the time his greatest worry was his love life. As he would say in a choking, breathless voice, " I am in love! " Being a Connecticut Yankee, he was always ready and able to use clear thought and understanding in any argument for the North. ROBERT JULIUS ANDERSEN, JR. -pj Auburn, New York xSass fishing on the St. Lawrence in the spring and summer was once " Beezy ' s " biggest pastime, but he soon found new diversions in the life at the Academy, and proved himself equally adept with a lacrosse stick as with a fishing rod. Three years of regular competition will vouch for that. What little spare time he had out of lacrosse season was generally taken up with playing tennis and swimming, all in addition to originating and carrying out practical jokes on all his classmates. At the academy he made a great roommate and in the fleet, we know, he will make a great shipmate. dcut 6 :Ucu Jj(Qjj fhuJbJliu (h CLYDE BERTRAM ANDERSON -J-, Newport, Rhode Island r or a man who professed to believe that sleeping and eating were the only worthwhile things in life, Andy was strangely active. After two years of fencing, he took over the task of managing the " pinpushers. " He has sailed on the company teams; he has shot on both company and varsity pistol and rifle teams. Those rare spare moments were occupied by workouts in the gym, writing letters to New York and Newport, and guarding that precious meerschaum. In spite of all this, Andy has consistently stood high, not only in the class standing, but, with his quiet unassuming ways, in the esteem of his classmates. FRANCES JOSEPH BADER , -J. Manhattan, New York i ew York was Frank ' s background and to him it remains the one city. Hemmed in by skyscrapers, his contacts with the great outdoors have been Hmited to an occasional stroll in Central Park. Frank talks rapidly, without the East-Side twang, and writes an amazingly illegible hand with equal speed. His eternal good-humor and ever-present smile have made him at all times a welcome companion and a good shipmate. Not exactly a star man, his native wit and commonsense enabled him to hold his own in the fastest of company. JEWETT ALEXANDER BALDRIDGE ((-.-J Sayville, New York iJaldy " is known to most of us as one of those lads who when not having worries about the academic departments, devotes his time to racing the dinghies and sailing the other academy craft. A profound lover of the water and yachting, he could be found almost any afternoon participating in an informal race on the Severn, or deeply involved in a discussion on boats and racing. Anyone in the Storm Trysail Race will remember his long peaked cap and his tall stories about the ocean voyage. And, with that prize spyglass he will go far in his pursuit of racing. WILLIAM RANDOLPH BENNETT „ COLLINGSWOOD, NeW JeRSEY xSeing a sailor from ' way back, it was only natural that Bill turned all his spare time and energy in this direction. He started out plebe year in the company sailing crew, branching out a little at the end of the year to include those little salt water peanut shells, the international dinghies. Youngster year found him still with his dinghies, but also included service on the yawls, the Vamarie and the Spindrift. During his Second class year Bill found ordinary sailing lacking in excitement so he got his command qualifications and proceeded to go out for bay racing, becoming a pipe smoking, blue water sailor.

The job he viewed looked hard, but he soon found it easy enough to spend time and energy on outside activities. He is popular with everyone with whom he is in contact on account of his quiet seriousness and never failing, subtle humor. An ardent admirer of the Irish, which is easily recognizable in him, he is entirely worthy and possesses considerable character; and he will make good in the fleet as he has done here. Ed has found time for the fair sex; however, there is only one who has all his interests. CARL RICHARD BERQUIST y Rutherford, New Jersey It would be a great surprise if a fellow like Berky did not select the Navy as his chosen profession. Since he is of pure Swedish and Norwegian descent, the love of the sea is in his blood, inherited from his ancestors. He is a rabid base- ball and football fan, likes sailing, and, of all things, weight-lifting. In the fall he plays soccer and when spring comes around you can always find him on Worden Field participating in an intra-mural softball game. We are certain that his qualities of tactfulness, generosity, and his good nature will help him far along the long road to his goal, four stripes and a flag. ROBERT WOODRUFF BESGH -p Newark, New Jersey Uear old Rutgers on the Raritan lost a real " Rah, Rah " man when Bob ofl ' ered his services to Uncle Sam. His versatility gave him ample ability to fill the class treasurer and first company representative positions while maintaining a creditable academic standing. Bob was a born entertainer. His imitations of people with appropriate dialects, backed by a keen sense of humor, helped greatly to keep his pals ' spirits high. His activities included soccer, track, batt sports, and the Boat Club. His ability and congeniality will undoubtedly earn for him a place in the fleet as high as he has gained at the academy. EDMUND EUGENE BEVAN Trenton, New Jersey Owing it Jackson — Here ' s " Uncle Bee. " He ' s a New Jersey " Alliga- tor " who has put Frank Bailey ' s Meadowbrook to shame. Swing sessions under his instruction were just an everyday pastime. As a result, the maestro and his pupils have worn more than a few inches off the deck of good old Dahlgren Hall. To keep in condition for a rendezvous with the sword at hops, " Uncle Bee " performed on the wrestling mat, and his jive movements made him a stellar participant in this manly art. On the surface Gene might appear to be quite a " College Joe, " but despite his love of jive and checkered coats, he will make a 4.0 Naval officer. M fL JlP CLARENCE ROBERT BEYER u,--p, Renova, Pennsylvania 1 he best things come in small packages. " Such was Renovo, Pennsylvania ' s gift to the Navy; for Bob, a fourth platooner, was a credit to his state. Never excelling in anything but friendliness and character, " Punchy " was good at everything he undertook, having more than average intelligence, a pleasant disposition, a sincere nature, and an uncanny will power. Neither a brilliant student nor an extra-curricular man, he was never idle, for he got just what he came after — that big broad stripe and commission. UnHke his classmates, heart affairs numbered only one. His many friends knew him as " just plain swell. " WILLIAM WITHINGTON BISSELL New Castle, Pennsylvania JN ew Castle ' s loss was the Navy ' s gain, but Bill never let those home ties get too thin. There were just two kinds of girls to Bill — " Sis, " and all the rest. Somehow when we think of Bill we just naturally think of Sis — just like Mike and Ike. Although he came to the Academy right out of high school, academics were always easy for Bill and we all envied the smooth way he ripped through those math assignments. Always congenial, considerate, and helpful, Bill was the best of roommates, and we can see nothing ahead for him but a life of smooth - sailing and steady progress toward his goal . JOHN FURMAN BRIGGS, JR. J " A T 7 White Plains, New York Whitey " was White Plains ' gift to the Navy. When J. Furman first arrived, he was a blond package of energy, at first meek and mild, but which has since developed into a bomb-shell. His afternoons were spent in various fields of endeavor, the foremost of these being the Sub squad. It seems that the " Rabbit " was never cut out to be a swimmer and spent the greater part of his three years in a constant controversy with Henry Ortland and his staff. When he wasn ' t swimming, " Whitey " spent most of his time studying. He just didn ' t give the Ac- ademic departments a chance. TOWNSEND BROWN ry-, Old Lyne, Connecticut 1 o the amazement of his parents, " T " joined the navy and came to the Academy the hard way. With his two years as a signalman in the fleet, he saw it " from the other side of the fence " and gained a perspective which should prove a valuable asset in future years. " T " had traveled rather widely, before he started looking through portholes and has spent about a year in China. All the time he managed to salvage from the Academic department, he spent playing golf or squash and occasionally sat still long enough to read over " Time " or " Naval Institute Proceedings. " Though he was more on the sober side, we ' ll always remember him for his ready smile and cordial greeting. Here ' s luck " T " — hope to see you in the fleet. ' f r - ' - ' ■■■ - ■ ■ .■■ ' ; ' .

In fact, he was always making other people have fun when he was around. Whether it was a game of tennis, basketball, or a fourth at bridge, there was bound to be plenty doing with " Rum " in it. Not that he didn ' t have a serious side. It was just that he didn ' t show it. If it was academics or handling ketches, he was your man. Interests in the boat club and stamps rounded out the list of his favorite activities. " Rum ' s " generosity and in- herent ability to make friends will long be remembered by his classmates. EARL ENOS BUCKWALTER West Chester, Pennsylvania looming to the academy with a great track reputation, " Buck " promptly fulfilled every newspaper clipping. Winning his N in Cross-country and Ns in track and wrestling were just a few of " Buck ' s " accomplishments. When not running or wrestling, one could always find " Buck " on his bunk. He would argue with anyone and has never been known to give in — not even to the Exec. Department. With an O.A.O. back in West Chester, " Buck " never was the outstanding " snake " that he might have been. He was the nearest thing to " perpetual motion " ever seen at the academy, which rates " the little man " with the best of all our athletes. ALBERT CHARLES BURLEY . Salamanca, New York Ace hailed from the wilds of western New York. Against the ac- ademic department, Ace reasoned: " If it ' s easy, one doesn ' t have to study; if it ' s hard, there ' s no use studying. " Result — bunk drill. He lost more hair via hair tonic than he lost battling in the boxing ring or on the gridiron for the Goat- herders, but drafted as plebe track manager. Ace ascended the ladder and became varsity manager. Study? " I ' ll star next year; let ' s go sailing. " A sense of humor and the ability to realize his ambitions should land him in Pensacola for his ambitions lie skyward and we predict plenty of high flying. B HOWARD WESTON BURNETT, JR. Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts ly clinging tenaciously to a Bostonian accent that had suffered tremendously under the influence of two Southern roommates, Wes proclaimed his Yankee origin. Weekends of sailing as a member of the racing crews of the academy yachts were usually inspiration enough for the conscientious efforts that kept him clear of academic difficulties. Other activities included Choir, Lucky Bag staflf, tennis, boxing and a senior year of golf. An ever-ready grin, a tem- peramental but habitually serious nature blended with a love of sarcasm to give the logical result. Here ' s to success in whatever branch of life fortune places you, Wes.

From where we sat, he did well Saturday nights at Dahlgren, but in his last year D. C. housed the reason for his disappearance from the stag line. Cal ' s pet pastime was matching his stick work with Krupa ' s. He missed a beat occasionally, but then, Gene had more drums. As chief cook and bottle washer at the record hops on Sunday afternoons, he kept our juke box supplied with records, for which we will be eternally grateful. JAMES MEEHAN CAMPBELL Sharon, Pennsylvania V oming from way out West in Sharon, Pennsylvania, Jim had never seen the ocean when he arrived at the academy. But his superior judgement and mature attitude carried him through the undergraduate years of his Naval career unruffled. Never bothered by the vagaries of the various academic de- partments, Jim spent all his free afternoons engaged in some form of athletics. The spare afternoons, when there were any, especially with a big weekend im- minent to need financing, were devoted to bridge. Even with all this, Jim found time to take a large share in managing the circulation of the Trident Society ' s many publications. La LAWRENCE DAVIDSON CANEY Gardiner, Maine .larry came to us from Gardiner, Maine, after a year at Bowdoin College, all of which has let him in for a very large share of ribbing about his broad accent. It was characteristic of Larry to enter into things that interest him with a great deal of enthusiasm and not to be satisfied until he rates " well done. " When not hitting the books, Larry could be found at the gym working hard at some exercise or in the music room practicing the piano. His keen interest and conscientiousness coupled with the inspiration from a certain person back in Gardiner will go a long way toward making Larry successful. EUGENE JOHN CANTY rj- SOMERVILLE, MASSACHUSETTS i. his genial Irishman left the Marine Corps Reserve unit at Boston College to enter the academy, where he has been a versatile athlete, participating in battalion basketball, football, track, B squad basketball, company softball, golf and tennis. Although frequently vowing, " I ' ll never drag blind again! " he always did. As he got along very well with all girls, he very nearly became a snake. When not busy with sports or dragging, his time was occupied by the Boat Club, reading or sleeping. Gene ' s high sense of decency and good-natured cheer- fulness should take him far towards a successful career. Cu a n V- Ca yiA CUi A n mmmmm«.,mm. 06- 3 Jltnyn y (. Ji.{) iKU JOHN JOSEPH CAPORASO -ij Olyphant, Pennsylvania W hen you want some dope on model building, look up " Gappy, " and he will either set you straight or proceed to do your work for you. That choice hobby occupied much of his time during plebe year. In the afternoon, he either went out for track, tennis, or went swimming with " the rest of the boys, " hoping to get past those swimming tests. He dragged to hops and other social events, but limited himself to a " queen " a month. As a roommate, " Gappy " was always cheerful, helpful, and understanding. A successful future in the fleet is in store for this Pennsylvania lad, if those eyes don ' t let him down. THOMAS HENRY GASEY, JR. «(-. «- GuNTON, Massachusetts iViidshipman Gasey, fourth class, pro-temp, sir " was Tom ' s unique way of sounding off, for he rightfully knew it wouldn ' t always be like that. Time eased the rigors of the system, however, and after swimming on the plebe team and playing a Karloff part with the Masqueraders, T. H. proved even more versatile by turning into a real snake. Once he had won a stripe, Tom was constantly busy with swimming, tennis, or work-outs in the gym, dragging, read- ing, or working on the Log — all in addition to academics. With Ace there ' s never a dull moment. His quiet good nature, flavored with subtle Irish wit, won him a host of friends and lucky is the man who finds Tom his shipmate. PHILIP MOEN CHILDS -t-rj Brookline, Massachusetts W hen Phil first reported for crew, Buck took a look at him and decided that he was too much of a ladies man. In spite of that, the numerals on his bathrobe show that it was not wholly true. Always on the go, he would rather work out in the gym or run than do anything else, yet he has found time to listen to good music and drag occasionally. Phil also included Quarterdeck Society and French Club among his activities and if this is any indication of his willing spirit, he may be assured of success in the game of life. But still a greater insurance for his future is Phil ' s dominant ability to distinquish between right and wrong, and then to proceed to undertake stubbornly the accomplishment of right. WILLIAM GHARLES GHIP A New Gastle, Pennsylvania Xi-thletics have always played a big part in Bill ' s life. We ' ll bet he had a football to play with before he had a rattle. A football star, his other sport is boxing. Son of a champion, BUI has always been a good fighter. Though Bill never dragged here, he was the most consistent mail-getter in the room and made up for a lot of lost time on leave. She must be wonderful. What do we remember best about Bill? In the middle of a quiet, peaceful study hour, Bill with a dreamy look on his rugged face saying, " Now if they would only pass the word for all hands to take thirty days leave. ...

Far from being a Red Mike, he has quite a unique way with women — all of them! With a wealth of fun, interest, and enjoyment of life, Jerry was the ideal wife. Although he didn ' t come from the fleet, he quickly acquired the sailor ' s traditional " girl in every port " — a trait which may hearken back to an ancestor in the days of sail. In the minds of those who know him best, there just isn ' t any doubt that Jerry will make an outstanding success of his career in the fleet. . (Z C CL X A HARRY LEO CLARK, JR. Boston, Massachusetts deep interest in ships and the sea brought Harry from the coast of Massachusetts to the Naval Academy. Academics were more or less a breeze, and most of his time was spent in pursuing his favorite hobby, painting. We often took our noses from our studies to flnd ourselves or the instructor adorning his notebook. The radiator squad was his first love, with track and handball a close second; but during his last year, the yachting squadron lured him from his bunk and his stories of Gloucester for a little of the real thing. His interest in the fair sex was mostly on the dream-girl side — we hope he finds her. Though he spent his three years with the sandblowers, don ' t discount him; somehow Harry always comes out on top. Ir JSymjiM THOMAS LEROY CLEAR, H New York, New York Ln spite of an incomplete high school education. Tommy has, by diligence and determination, kep t up with the rest of those possessing a college background. The results were praiseworthy. Studies kept him busy at the academy, but he managed to find time to play company and battalion Softball and get some swimming on the side. He enjoyed classical music and has contributed recordings to the weekly concerts. A native of New York, and invested with its rich culture, he took pride in following the doings of that illustrious city, and hopes some day to bring back some Navy culture. MICHAEL JOSEPH CLEMENS , Brooklyn, New York iViike left not a few New Yorkers in tears when he came to the Naval Officer Factory, and since then he had everyone here wearing the very latest in smiles and chuckles. Although dispensing humor is his forte, Clem would have built an enviable record on the gridiron if it hadn ' t been for an inopportune crack-up on the footbaO field during his plebe year. But his first scrimmage with the academic department left them with a lasting respect for his agile mentality. We hope to meet " Big Mike " again for his cheery self-confidence, fine sense of honor, and ready wit will make him an ideal shipmate. tmmmmsmmmmmmm msm sira " 4=%! j GERARD FRANCIS COLLERAN Boston, Massachusetts I erry has well upheld the high standards set at the Naval Academy by Massachusetts men. He has stood high in academics and also in popularity, being elected Class Crest committeeman and plebe and youngster company representative. He ran in plebe track and varsity cross country and served on his company sailing team. The Reception Committee, the Foreign Language Club, and the Boat Club were also on his activity Hst. Reading, writing letters, and work- ing out in the gym took up some few spare moments, but he often wished that Maryland terrain permitted skiing. As for dragging — well, Hingham to Annapolis was a long trip! GEORGE CORNELIUS j y Toms River, New Jersey XLiveryone has heard the story of the man who built a better mouse- trap. Well, he isn ' t Skip, but his extraordinary ability as a cartoonist has placed him in a similar category. Times Square at high noon had nothing on us, except subways, when editors, committee chairmen, and various and sundry others started beating a path to our door for contributions from " Skip. " Nor do his talents end with cartooning, as any afternoon would find him hard at work on another of his accomplishments, tumbling. Few have heard of Toms River, but everyone in Toms River has heard of " Skip " and his one ambition — Pensacola. All he asks is that you don ' t call him " Corny. " STANLEY JOSEPH COWIN, JR. K-pj Orono, Maine Ivosie passed his plebe Dago exam! " — -such was the news which two years ago convinced this out and out pessimist that his naval career had not ended. His career to date has included three years with the Masqueraders, Bat- talion soccer, Plebe Boxing Manager, a crack at Cheer Leader, and two years on the Reception Committee. On the intellectual side he aligned himself with the Newman Club, assumed the duties of Circulation manager of the Lucky Bag and devoted his spare time to a study of ships and famous Naval leaders. Rosie ' s future seems to be divided equally between a young lady in Maine and duty at sea. ANGUS JOHN CRONIN WLynn, Massachusetts ith previous experience as a leatherneck, Angus came to the academy with a bit of a jump on his classmates. He went out for cross country, did quite a bit of yacht racing and, in his final year, used previous Marine service to advantage in shooting on the pistol team. Out of class, Angus was considered quite a " snake. " There was usually a mischievous glint in his eye and many a humorous trick could be traced to him. We might add that his favorite hobby, sleeping, kept him in the " pink " of condition. Generous, a bit on the " Scotch " side and always good natured, the plebes and his classmates found him a real friend. y Z y - f ■ 6:Jt-ty-t v., : r- Wj FRANKLYN EDWARD DAILEY, JR. Rochester, New York hen Frankie was handed an appointment to the Naval Academy, he said, " Where is the Naval Academy? " He was told it was in Maryland, and so he became a midshipman. During his plebe year, he went. out for soccer a couple of times, but tennis and 12th Company Softball were his sport interests later. Arguing, particularly on subjects about which he had very little knowledge, was his favorite pastime, but Frankie used to be quite a bridge player until luck turned, and he found that the game wasn ' t worth the cost. Considering the small amount of time he spent studying, he stood very well in his class. We ROBERT FRANCIS DALY Manhattan, New York e know very little about Rosebud before he deserted the side- walks of New York for the cobblestones of Annapolis. It was not long after he arrived, however, before he was getting his full share and even more of " Plebe Year " — everyone liked to run that good-natured Irishman. Bob was active at football and lacrosse, but he never excelled because he preferred sleep to workouts. That same love of sleep forced him to adopt unique study methods which he alone was able to use. Yardbird lost two roommates who attempted to use his system of study. Rosy is always good company and he will be a fine officer anywhere in the Navy. GEORGE JUNIUS DAVIS ( HiNGHAM, Massachusetts Otinky " slipped into the academy from Massachusetts, after attending school in California, Washington, Switzerland and a few other places. It didn ' t take long to acquire loafing as his hobby, Morpheus as his deity, and extra duty as his antipathy. From an extra-curricular angle, his activities centered on gym, tennis, a genuine interest in Collier ' s, and an occasional dcbauche at the canteen. Like father, like brother, he is Navy to the heart and knows the life for which he is preparing. The future lies ahead — may fortune smile kindly on him, and may he go up as fast in the Navy as he did on the rope. DANIEL DELOS DECKER, JR. Auburn, New York Ounny weekends found Dan shoving off on the Ketch " Turtle " for overnight sails or Sunday dragging trips. With the arrival of winter, his interests shifted from on the water to in it; his crawl stroke gaining the Fourth Battalion team many points. He hails from around the Finger Lakes in New York, which explains his love of the water; for, according to him, there is no better swimming anywhere. Lessons came easy, and the abundance of mail he received daily bore witness to the study hours spent writing letters. Nevertheless, he stood well in his class and established an enviable reputation.

RODERICK CHARLES DENNEHY Garden City, New York k-od was immediately stamped as one of the leaders in his class, and this he was. Not only was he outstanding in the classroom, but also on the athletic field; for in golf and soccer he ranked among the best. These were but few of his many activities which were too numerous to mention. A Yankee by birth " Doc " turned to southern beauty. His social life included one hop a month when " she " could make it. His pleasing personality and quiet confidence won him many friends, and there is no end in sight for his future accomplishments. His abilities are only increased by his personality but do not rely principally on this trait, however. Or STUART ALLEN DEWEES RoBESONiA, Pennsylvania ' ne of the few who came from High School directly into the Naval Academy, Stuart soon showed that he had many qualities necessary for a good naval officer. A member of the company pistol team and battalion soccer team for two years, Stuart was always busy in the afternoons. In the spring he devoted his time to the battalion softball and tennis teams, and in the fall to the pistol team. Always conscientious in thought and study, Stu loved light classical music, dancing, swimming, sailing, and long cross country hikes in the country. Whether his ambition to go to Pensacola is realized or not, Stu will always rate his stripes. Jc JOSEPH ORLANDO DIGANGI Hartford, Connecticut I oe hails from Hartford, the greatest industrial town in the country — according to him. Taking Joe as an example, we can see why, for there isn ' t another fellow we know who has as much determination as " O ' Toole. " He had his " run ins " with the Academic departments occasionally, but they couldn ' t stop Joe. With the " Bomb " in the crowd there was always a laugh for everyone, even though some of them at times were at his own expense. His one big aim when he graduates is to get his wings, and we all feel that when Joe gets behind the controls of the Grumman, things are bound to happen — and fast. PAUL DOANE y y Brockton, Massachusetts lT.e answers, when awake, to the name Paul, and is a born athlete if ever there was one. Early in his career he had established himself as a swimmer, soccer player, and trackman. He specialized in the last two while at the academy, but eventually decided that the soccer field was too far to trek every afternoon. That narrowed his choice to the last, since swimming disturbed the inner workings of his head. When shin splints claimed another victim he was nonplussed, to say the least. How was he to achieve fame? Ha! Dear readers, his fame lies in this biography — in his efforts lie his renown. JOSEPH FRANCIS DONAHOE, JR. r- Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania i he greater portion of " Punchy " is taken up in his feet — size 15. " That was formation " was a common cry as his three wives dashed out the door while " Feets " was emerging from the shower. Feets leads the field in " Formation, late to. " A great athlete, Joe has taken part in all the Navy has to offer. Pittsburgh smoke must be nourishing— Joe added plenty of weight to that Navy line. Evenings he read Cosmo — sticking out his " five-striper " chest and boasting, " you can add the standings of all three of my wives together and they won ' t even approach mine. " Though the seas be rough, Joe will always find smooth sailing. JOHN AUGUSTINE DONNELLY -J. Arlington, Massachusetts In the three years since he left Massachusetts, " Black-Jack " has accomplished much. Pleasantly conceited, his ready wit and care-free disposition have made him one of the more popular of his class, and an asset to any gathering of hail-fellows-well-met. His athletics were confined to plebe crew; for this same easy-going nature (and the necessity of writing those daily letters) caused several close shaves with the Academic departments which Hmited his extra-curricular activities to dragging, Smoke Hall billiards, and the Log ' s art. First a friend; always a gentleman, he will surely make his place in the sun. There can be no doubt about that. RICHARD YOUNG DOW (c-Pj Burlington, Vermont rvowdy " came to us from the land of green mountains and blue lakes where he spent a year at the University of Vermont studying Civil Engineer- ing before entering the Naval Academy. In the spring or summer you could usuall y find him down at the dinghy float keeping the boats in condition or sailing in the races. He also had many other interests, being able to swing a mean tennis racquet and to play almost every card game imaginable. To him study hour was just another time to write letters. However, when it comes time for " Rowdy " to succeed we know he shall, for he has a smile and a certain friendliness which we all admire. LINCOLN MEAD DUNLAP . Fall River, Massachusetts ixnyone talking to this blonde would know that he hailed from that section of the country called New England, which he called " God ' s country. " Although a true Naval officer, someday he hopes to return to good old Massa- chusetts and settle down to a real home life and Yankee comfort. He was in love with one girl when he arrived at the academy, still is, and will remain that way. He is attracted by good swing and classical music, reading, current events, sports, and all around good times. He is good natured and that, combined with a good sense of humor, will make him a real friend and shipmate. : Uf. cL. 179 Re MARSH KERMIT ECKHARDT Rochester, New York Rochester University lost a potential chemist when " Gooch " decided to become a Naval officer. Mathametics was his star subject, and any unfortunate classmate having difficulty could always get excellent tutelage from Marsh. " Gooch " and his bass fiddle were the mainstay of the NA-io ' s rhythm section. Singing in the choir was another of his musical accomplishments. On the athletic field, you could always find him playing soccer, tennis or sof.ball. Dragging, sailing, and the Boat Club took what little extra time Marsh had to spare. The ability to make friends easily and a willingness to help others forecast a very successful career. JOHN JOSEPH EMANSKI, JR. (ty Forty Fort, Pennsylvania 1 can ' t work it, go see Ski. " The brains, laugh and all, came from way out west in Pennsylvania to make a highly successful career at the academy. " Ski " was a capable boxer and three-year member of the battalion football team. Besides being a good blocking back, he was a conscientious savoir, a star man, an ardent fighter as a member of the Ring Committee, and a worthy contributor of cartoons for the Log. His marked enthusiasm conbined with a love for argument and his ever-readiness to help a baffled classmate over a snag has estabHshed " Ski " far and wide as a " good man. " PHILLIP FREDERICK ERKENBRACK A Long Island, New York Ithough his bathrobe wasn ' t covered with N ' s Phil had a variety of interests in sports and could always be found ready to play a game of tennis, handball, or squash. As a plebe he tried his hand at lacrosse and easily won his numerals but his growing interest in the Boat Club prevented him from becoming a varsity man. Never being bothered with such triviahties as academics, he usually spent his spare time dragging, sailing, or making a good fourth at bridge with his endless humor and wit. With sound judgement and a will to tackle any job, Phil has the confidence and ability to make a success of his chosen profession. WILLIAM JOSEPH EVERETT y-, Woodside, New York Torsaking a career in civil engineering. Bill entered the academy with a camera, a guitar, and a desire for a Naval career. Since then, the NA-io, Lucky Bag photographic staff, battalion swimming team, and women have oc- cupied his attentions. A likable sense of humor, a flair for anything photogenic, and a peculiar ability to ride herd on the Executive department, won him many friends. In anything from dragging the girl friends ' friend to developing a roll of film, " Sabu " could always be counted on as a real classmate. Here ' s hoping he soon achieves his goal, Pensacola, and the wings that follow. A M- -4a.ooaAo Qtk e. f. u- iBvvJL u)M4 0 ju6 i Jf T Q.

" When " Poisson " wasn ' t on the track or in the gym, he could usually be found practicing for the N.A.-io or wrapping it up for fun. Famed for his " snaking, " Poisson was said never to have missed a hop or passed up an opportunity to drag, but most of the gals lost out when he sailed the yawls or ketches. His record collection, correspondence, and the Lucky Bag took up the rest of his time. Strictly on the non-reg side, he made many friends of whom he may well be proud. We were glad to have had him along. CONRAD JOSEPH FLESSNER « • IsEHN, New Jersey i gentleman as well as a scholar " would well describe Connie. A studious fellow, but famous for his amusing stories of his relatives and for his impersonations, Connie was a swell roommate. A lover of precision, he could be found brushing his teeth at nine o ' clock every night. Although hindered by an injured wrist, Fless spent most afternoons engaged in some sport. He was a battalion crew man and a track star of no mean ability. Sunday nights he spent in Memorial Hall with the Newman Club. Gifted with an enquiring mind, this New Jersey lad conquered academics with a smile on his lips and a song in his heart. G. )4Az .o- 3. : AMEDEO HENRY GALVANI Plymouth, Massachusetts ral, as we called him, came from the home of the Pilgrims, but far from being Puritanic, he was strictly a modern; combining, with his laughing conversation, a versatility not in the least latent. He was completely at home on the athletic field, particularly in soccer — his favorite sport. He further takes an active interest in tumbling, crew, and sailing. Nor was his prowess confined to the physical, for academics were a small worry. Socially Gal was more than satis- factory, for he enjoyed dancing, dragging, and lively discussions. With such qualifications, there is little doubt of his complete success ashore and afloat. Ma MARTIN DECKARD GASTROCK Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Lart was successfully pursuing a chemical course and at the same time starring on the tennis team at a southern college when the Navy brought him back North. At the academy he has foregone varsity athletics for battalion sports, taking part in Softball, basketball, and tennis. His diversions were many but his prepossessions boiled down to " pro " baseball, chocolate marshmallow nut sundaes, bull sessions and a yearly bet that the " A ' s " would finish in the first division. He may lose his bet on the " A ' s, " but you can safely give odds that Mart ' s ability to make friends will always keep him well up in the first division. - ..:2t 4. L ■ j XCa- -nX a. t. J 3LAA %i.

He usually spent his afternoons on the tennis courts or in the swimming pool practicing for battalion meets. Although he was not a regular attendant at the meetings of the " radiator squad, " he was a member in good standing and he played a very good game of bridge. This, however, was not his favorite form of amusement, for, like the rest of us, he succumbed, and Saturday night hops usually found him on the floor of Dahlgren Hall with his own drag. o. JAMES McKINNON GILLIN Bangor, Maine ' ut of the north woods of Maine emerged our little Jim, beaming all over with an Irish pride and a stamina that even the loftiest of systems couldn ' t break. The fellow had the uncannicst of good luck ever seen that was manifested in many fields. An all around character, snake, and thinker, such as he, has no trouble in making good anyplace. A greater part of his afternoons were spent in good, strenuous sleeping, the rest of which were devoted to answering multitudes of letters. His technical abilities insure him a fine career in the service for which he is so well suited. Wit WILLIAM DONALD GLYNN Haverhill, Massachusetts ith a broad Boston " A, ' a yankee twang on his tongue, and a twinkle in his eye that hinted of a rich New England humor. Bill came to follow his oldest love, the sea, from the Massachusetts sea coast. Just as his forefathers had spread their fame over the world as excellent seamen; so Bill spread his fame in these stately halls as a man who stood high in academics; a man who won on the cinder course, and a man who was always welcomed at anybody ' s bull session. The old adage " To know is to love, " went well with this young sailor, for he was loved and respected by all who knew his smile. ROBERT DINGMAN GOLLY BRoME, New York ob blew in with Golly as a last name so we called him " BY. " He thought he would major in medicine, but the Navy Department gently persuaded him otherwise. They kindly, but firmly took away his skis and gave him a slide rule. And so, by golly, he joined the Navy. He liked to swim and boot a soccer ball around and gave a good account of himself in both a tank suit and soccer shoes as well as with that brown-eyed minx who haunted his mail. Always busy in the afternoon on the athletic field, on his bunk, or at a bridge table, or busy playing the latest jive, " By " had plenty of friends. ■ J M V C e e,S. 3 ( oJ!s !U .

When reminiscing, he sometimes, even yet, speaks of their libraries, where he spent his free hours in a deep chair with a pipe and a good book. On our Youngster Cruise, he made the Great Guns Award as pointer on a five inch gun. Though a potential star man, you never saw " Flash " studying, for he believed in trying to figure things out in class. Like all New Englanders, George liked sailing and did a good job at racing yawls on the weekends. A splendid roommate and a fine officer, clear sailing to the top is a sure thing for George. G WILLIAM JAMES GRAY a-[j WiLLIAMSVILLE, NeW YoRK iJill " to some. " Willy " to others, but always a " swell guy " to those of us who knew him. Friendliness and good humor were Bill ' s prime qualities when he departed from his beloved Empire State to labor for Uncle Sam ' s biggest stripe. Rangy, rough, and ready, poor alliteration, but applicable to Bill, whether seen playing upon the football field, behind a billiard cue, or in a squash court. Seldom idle, Bill ' s spare time was consumed principally in athletics, reading, or dragging. His versatility and winning personality perpetually attracted to him the fairer sex as well as his own classmates. EARL DRISSEL HACKMAN, JR. Landsdale, Pennsylvania Who ' s that little chatterbox. The one who ' s lost his curly locks? • Who could it be but little E. D. Vside from his picturesque and terrific gift of gab, we found in Earl an infinite amount of energy which he expended in doing worthy things as well as diabolical pranks. Crowded in this short scoundrel we found a keen sense of humor — continuously sprouting out to the amusement and enjoyment of every- one. He always had a word of encouragement on his lips that was backed up by the sincere look in his huge round eyes. Hack will be remembered by all who came within the bounds of his friendship. PERRY HALL y Trenton, New Jersey J ittle man, you ' ve had a busy three years. Nothing spectacular or immortal ever came from them, but you did well. Perry found the studies fairly hard, but not so the hours spent in recreation. Both the soccer and lacrosse teams received his able and willing support during the entire course. In the few spare minutes remaining, Perry managed to read his share of books, smoke a weird collection of pipes, and keep a lively conversation going. Never over ambitious and never disturbed, he calmly took things as they came. He was just a " regular fel- ler " who could be depended upon to do his work, and do it successfully and reliably. m ' se. i J ' - . % i lc f cAjLyfl .

He not only swam, played lacrosse and soccer, but he wrote these sports up for the Log. He took the academics in his long easy stride, always including dragging and letter-writing as a part of his curriculum. You ' ll know him when you see him — six feet of happy, loveable fellow — a swell shipmate — that ' s " Moe. " FRANK CHARLES HANSCHE ,,-p, SuFFERN, New York i hough he said he never had to study before he came here, Frank looked very much like a bookworm upon occasions; in fact he read a great deal for pleasure. But he was also athletic, within reason, being somewhat conservative. Battalion cross country, soft ball, and basketball were his favorite sports. A very sociable fellow, he did some fine work for the Reception Committee. Frank undoubtedly always had a clear conscience; this is amply supported by the fact that he had to be kicked into consciousness at reveille. Though devoted to cigarettes he was really self-reliant and a good man to have around. MILTON LOUIS HARVEY (J-. , Brooklyn, New York JVlike " came to the Naval Academy from Brooklyn and he hasn ' t lived it down yet. Like most men from harbor cities, he knew little of ships or the sea. He recognized the possibilities of sail early Plebe year and made many of those delightful overnight trips on the ketches. During the long winter months, Mike could usually be found in the gym absorbing practical instruction in the boxing ring.

" Despite this weakness and that of sleeping as many hours out of the twenty- four as possible, Charlie, aside from sundry and not too frequent bush hunting trips, has had no great academic worries. Always with the right word for any situation, he has that personality that makes him welcome with the fellows and chased by the gals. Though slightly on the sandblower side few there are that Charlie doesn ' t cut down to his size and make them like it. A hard worker, con- cientious, and persistent in purpose, CharHe ' s abilities have shown him to be one of the best. 3! 0J fcuv Q„ ,OWjy- - JOHN HAROLD HENNESSY, JR.

Claiming Brooklyn as his home-town and being proud of it was, perhaps, his outstanding claim to fame or to notoriety (according to your taste) . Plebe year he was an enthusiastic member of the Class Crest Committee, furnishing great moral support, if little artistic talent. He aspires to enter the submarine service, however, whatever his branch of service, he will probably meet with the same success that has marked his course thus far. JAMES WILLIAM HERRING . Sayville, Long Island, N. Y. XI. majority of the men who enter the Naval Academy are about as ignorant of the things of the sea as the average mid-Western farmer. We had, however, one member of our class who fairly dripped with brine the day he rolled into Annapolis " Plebe Summer. " In the three short years that passed he left his mark on every phase of sailing that existed at the academy. " Fish, " as he was quickly dubbed, was reared on Long Island only a stone ' s throw from the roaring Atlantic. He was saiHng toy boats before he cut his first tooth and followed the early call of the sea to the Naval Academy. A past like that can forecast nothing but a brilliant future for his chosen career in the Navy. ALVIN ROBERT HERSH, JR. ,c- Newport, Rhode Island 1 oungster year was fruit. " By this ironic expression you will know Alvie, a man who has his stars and a reputation for never losing an argument. His background at Newport and his memorable experiences on the Y. P, 15 have not only proved to be helpful to Al but as weU to many of we duller lights of the Seamo Department. Sandwiched in between academics and bunk drills, Al was able to collect and enjoy a fine library, perfect his chess stratagems, and develop a wicked tennis arm. His clearheadedness, common sense, and capacity for hard work will spread oil on any troubled waters he may encounter. HARVARD CHRISTIAN HUBER , y Nutley, New Jersey JN o one chose a more difficult road to learning than did Hubie when he started to the Naval Academy via the fleet. Now, after two years, he is still working hard and is very near to starring. Although Pop retained many of the traits of the sailor, one that he never acquired was the traditional girl in every port. He is still devoted to his O.A.O. back home in New Jersey; a record few of us can equal. A voracious reader of all manner of literature from Tolstoi to " Astounding Stories, " Hubie never found time to become an enthusiastic athlete. He is prepared to do a good job when he returns to the fleet as an officer. Xef--u y . 44. e i=UjL , ,fu R ' 5w a y ..-X " - ; CC ■ i:J i? .Ju JACK GARDNER HUDSON " y Freeport, New York J ack Hudson? Oh yes, he ' s that nice, tall blonde fellow. " That was strictly the drags reaction to this easy going sailor from Long Island; but those who knew him — ! Don ' t get the idea that Jack spent all his time charming the girls. On the contrary, athletics and extra-curricular activities were a very predominant part of his life at the academy. Rowing, first with the plebe crew and then in the battahon shells, and battalion football always kept him busy. Nor could we forget the musical shows, glee club, " dago " club, boat club and others for which he somehow found time. Yes, it was a busy three years for ' Jackson. " PHILLIP HURT -p Astoria, New York r hil has spent most of his spare time in athletics here at the academy, and anyone who knows the hours required for practice will realize how busy his life has been. Plebe year saw him win numerals for football and baseball. His first varsity year he won an " N " in football and a monogram in baseball, holding down a starting pitching assignment. This year saw him out for football and base- ball again. He didn ' t neglect those all-important studies, however; and stood well up in his class. He attended Admiral Farragut Academy before entering, being originally from Long Island. JAMES KAY IRVIN J Philadelphia, Pennsylvania ake ' s true ability lies in devising systems, and he claimed to be the only midshipman in the history of " Ye Olde Academy " to have a successful solu- tion for " beating the system. " " Yogi " could be found anywhere management is required. His name dotted the sports records, and many a secret venture had his sturdy support. Among Jim ' s files were found recordings, mostly classical but some popular; liquor labels; newspaper headings; maps; and many a phone number, concealing tales unknown and untold. His type of serious yet unruffled serenity is a delight to find in a companion. " Hey, Jake, what ' s the dope? " ERIC ISCHINGER, JR. rj East Rochester, New York W e all came with high hopes and ideals, and some with Kampus Kid written all over, but Eric came with all that and just a little more. Some guys are made regular and he was one of the boys. Battalion football gave " Isch " a rugged workout Youngster year and he also managed a spot in battalion tennis. Even his pet hobby, color photography, suffered when " Eric the Red " took up golf over leave. Eric, almost a savoir, had no trouble with academics. Very serious and sincere, he surprised everyone — even his drags sometimes; but needless to say, Eric made himself an officer and a gentleman — one of the best. 4 u . 2c- t2jf ?: t- - WILLIAM FRISCH JACOBS . New Rochelle, New York x New Yorker rooting for the RED SOX? Impossible! What ' s his name? Oh, you mean " Rosy, " the cute fellow with the curly hair and those chubby red cheeks. He ' s the same guy they call Jake, the one that was the football manager. My, how the women did go for him too — Yeah, we played Battalion soccer together and, he was also one of those softball enthusiasts. I understand Jake comes naturally by his conscientious studying — he has relatives high in the naval service. With such a strong desire to be a success in his chosen profession, I ' ve no doubt in my mind that Jake will be tops, first as a J. O. and later as a commanding officer. More power to him! DANIEL MARTIN KARCHER y Merion, Pennsylvania JNo one could ever tell what was going to happen in Dan ' s vicinity next. An entertaining and unpredictable personality, he had an inherent love for rugged sports which took him into a variety of activities. Most of his plebe year wrestling opponents remember him from the bottom looking up. On the football field he was a valuable plebe and " B " squad end. Ketch trips — oh boy! — the Reception Committee, and the Lucky Bag claimed some of his attention. He best showed his ability as a hard working member of the Ring Committee, and the ' 43 ring is vivid testimony of a job well done. WILLIAM HENRY KASTENBEIN . North Bennington, Vermont li-lways ready to enter into any form of social sport or pastime, Bill had the remarkable quality of winning friends and the good nature to keep them. Fencing was his most active recreation during the cooler portion of the years at the academy; tennis, handball, and swimming also served in whiling away the free hours between studies. At times when things seemed to be going the hardest, there was always in his makeup a spark of tenacity that threw the balance in the right direction — a typical quality of the Vermont yankee. Aboard any ship of the fleet there will always be a welcome seat in the wardroom for him. GEORGE ALPHONSUS KELLEY, JR. (c y Bellefonte, Pennsylvania J ake " has three triumphant pastimes — art, football trips, and quaint quips. Who could forget Jake ' s gurghng epithet — Vd. lo sabe! In extra-curricular activities " Kel " played his part well. Besides being a member of the Reception Committee, Newman Club, and the J. V. football roster, he also took honors in battalion basketball, softball, and tennis. Jake believes in wrestling with life ' s problems, whether it be a " skinny prob, " a cake of ice, or the O.A.O. When his hardest prob is to add up his bankbook and when the ice he wrestles fits in a tall glass, we know that he will win any bout. -v4 ;: : fi . ziu 4 . % 5 ?«»»■» • ' , ■ . ' j a.

JMooRESTOWN, New Jersey im came from New Jersey, saw the land of his boyhood dreams, then proceeded to conquer innumerable friends with his Irish wit and contagious grin. In the field of sport he found time to try boxing and sailing. His sole romantic interest was a fair New York lass, and his greatest passion, flying, will be realized the day he wears those treasured wings. Never a greasoir, Jim has evaded the clutches of the Academic department while stamping himself as a real classmate and a loyal friend. His independent, fun loving spirit brought him into frequent clashes with the Executive department, all of which have been added to his store of experiences. Ne EDWARD FRANCIS KENNEY Weston, Massachusetts J ed is typically Irish from the head to toe. Anytime we wanted an argument Ned was ready, willing, and eager to accomodate. Academics were no obstacle to this keen witted lad and though not on any varsity list, he was, never- theless, quite agile when it came to sports, crew being his favorite. His interest in the fairer sex has been limited to one since youngster leave. Ned looks ambitiously to Pensacola, but with or without wings his keen sense of humor will make him a welcome addition to any wardroom. KENNETH RICHARD KLOFKORN J Boston, Massachusetts In spite of being a product of New England, Ken is definitely not of the Puritan type. Probably because of the boost given him by starring plebe year, few are the extra-curri cular activities that have not been tried by him. The Log and Lucky Bag took up the brain work while he relaxed at softball and volley ball. Never having any academic worries, his main gripe seems to have been about the peculiarities of Irishmen and Southerners. Having been a go-getter while here at the academy, he should continue to get ahead whether in the Navy or in civilian life. . LEONARD THEODORE KREIDLER J Staten Island, New York In addition to rooting for the Dodgers, Len sang with the Glee Club, read widely, wrote (and received) innumerable letters, and has probably dragged more girls than any other midshipman. His heart has never wavered in allegiance to one girl from New York, on whose behalf he diligently saved pennies for a miniature. It is hard to say whether he is happiest when dragging or when swap- ping stories with a gang of fellows. At any rate he is an extrovert. For all his good times, Len has never sacrificed work to play. This well-balanced nature combined with his sincere friendliness will stand him in good stead in the years to come.

His love is a flat sea and a Hght breeze. He cut his teeth on a jib sheet and has been kiciiing the tiller around ever since. With a dinghy for an O.A.O. he became 1939 ' s No. 2 Thompson Trophy winner. Even if the Navy didn ' t allow much bouy room academically. Bob finished in the Kunhardt manner. Second love — photography. Youngster year he met a girl! Sailing and photography didn ' t occupy every week-end after that. By no means a " Red Mike, " by all means a Navy man! Even Napoleon had no edge on Captain Bob — in height! Bi WILLIAM FRANCIS LALLY, JR. Yonkers, New York )ill had a keen sense of values which early made him realize that there was naught for him but a career in the Navy. This dynamic little Irishman came to the academy from the suburbs of the Big City; from a life of noise, rush and confusion to one of discipline, regimentation, and efficiency. A ready fourth for a bridge game, a familiar figure at hops, and an active participator in battahon athletics, Bill ' s spare time was well filled. With a continuous laugh to back his Irish wit, Bill will never be without a wide circle of friends, men as well as those of the fair sex. ARTHUR STANLEY LANE, JR. A Ansonia, Connecticut I . true Connecticut Yankee with salt-water in his veins. Art was a seafaring man long before he pulled an oar in those memorable plebe summer cutter drills. We ' ve never quite decided whether he would have done better in Hollywood or before the mast, but he ' s made a flying start towards success in the latter, with Pensacola as the next goal. The line he handed the academic depart- ments has worked as smoothly as the one he employed with the fair sex, and these assets, combined with the bearing and manner of a gentleman, make him a wel- come addition to any company. Here ' s hoping we ' H be shipmates again. Art. HAROLD FRED LANG r- Union City, New Jersey i o us, who knew him as Carmichael, Hal was one of the best- natured fellows in the academy, with his high spirits and beaming smile welcomed in every room or on any athletic field. This brain and brawn combination from Union City was sure to throw his hat in any ring — from B-squad football, tennis, and battalion wrestling to Masqueradcrs ' shows, Log, Lucky Bag, and editor of the Reef Points — he was a hit in them all. And, as everyone knew, neither his social activities nor his high academic standing were overshowed by these achievements. On the whole, he was just an all-around " regular guy.

His friendly and easy- going nature made him very well liked wherever he went, and consequently he had a large correspondence list — most of his spare time being spent in writing letters to his friends. Much of his time was spent razing or repairing gadgets, however, because of his inquisitive and mechanical inclinations. Although a confirmed member of the " Radiator Squad, " Don enjoyed tennis, swimming, ice skating, and was a member of the Hell Cats and the Boat Club. LEFTERIS LAVRAKAS -pj Watertown, Massachusetts 1 lebe year " Lefty " made an indelible impression on Navy ' s sports fans with his brilliant work behind the plate on the freshman nine. The next season he showed the same abihty and fighting spirit in winning, over veterans of the first and second class, a secure position on the varsity. Although his main love was baseball. Lefty managed to do very well in basketball, football, and dragging. A true descendant of ancient Greece, Lefty coupled an intense interest in music and literature with a rare sense of humor and a sparkling personaUty. He should become a fine officer, popular wherever he goes. DUNBAR LAWSON Wilmington, Delaware Otand clear gang! Here comes Dunbar, the social whirling dervish. Ask him where he gets all those pretty girls, and he won ' t tell you. He did all right around Bancroft Hall too. His bathrobe showed that he participated in numerous sports. His favorite being boxing. Because of an injury, he had to give up boxing, and so took up the rifle. After graduation, he hopes to get around this world and see exactly what makes it tick. When he stops taking eye re-exams, we ' ll find him in the fleet, a true shipmate and friend. A man of many interests Dunbar has taken advantage of all his spare moments to keep himself busy in some form of extra curricular work. SAMUEL CRAIG LEEDOM Newark, New Jersey Oomewhere along the road to greater knowledge Craig lost his bearings, missed being a French instructor by a good day ' s run, and put in at the Naval Academy. A tenacious determination to become the best possible naval officer was equalled only by his desire to give away the miniature he waited so long to get. As soon as he had assured himself that tomorrow ' s academics were " fruit, " Craig became completely engrossed in any one of four subjects; fencing, the French Club, his bunk, or the extra duty squad. His aggressive attacks on these left no doubt as to his success in the Fleet. . CnM S U-yn. yi . c _.

A bachelor, though not by choice, his weekly dragging of youngster year finally settled down to a routine three out of four. While basking in the sun with a well-caked pipe, he made more cord belts than any two bo ' sun ' s mates. Battalion wrestling covers his only serious attempt at athletics. He thought of going into the Marine Corps till he heard about the marching. Abe, although he never attempted to break any academic records here at the academy, held his own against the best of them. CU Ly Ji V c JAMES EDWARD LEWELLYN Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania I immy arrived from the Smoky City with his specs, skull cap, pipe, and an ambition to make good. He started by playing two sports, standing high in his class, and using his talent for cartooning to keep his classmates amused and guessing. A shoulder injury halted his football career, but he continued with his boxing. Whenever a group was found, Jimmy was usually in the midst of it. His antics, jokes, and many dialects were always good for a laugh from his fellows. With his qualities of good-fellowship, tact, and understanding, Jim will be a pleasant and valued shipmate. JOHN WESLEY LOGAN -pj MooRESTOWN, New Jersey Jjeing of an open mind. Jack entered the Naval Academy from New Jersey fortified with a basic training obtained in the fleet. A profound soul with a flexible personality made him good company in any group. Possessor of a happy-go-lucky spirit. Jack was over willing to aid the harrassed classmate, es- pecially in romantic affairs, for on this subject he was our number one authority. His " exercises, " centering on swimming and volley ball, periodically left him a defeated, worn out individual. His greatest pride is his curly hair; his greatest desire is to command a sub; his predominant trait is his pleasing personality. JOSEPH ARTHUR LOVINGTON -|-, Newark, New Jersey Prom New Jersey, Joe came and proved to us that all Yankees don ' t rate the prefix commonly assigned them. As a student there were few better but standing ten didn ' t keep him from other activities. Though no varsity athlete, he was a staunch member of battalion teams. His chief interest and skill however, was in yawl sailing for you could see him cross the line on the winning yawl in any Sunday race. Joe ' s sunny disposition, happy smile, and readiness to join in on any party made him an ever pleasant companion. Being definitely not adverse to feminine companionship, he would always rouse the envy of his classmates with his drags. --i»i r- ' o MJ ROBERT JOHN MACQUAID Philadelphia, Pennsylvania JVlac was strictly one of those fellows who couldn ' t see the words on the blackboard, and by the end of youngster year, couldn ' t see the blackboard. Although not a cut-throat, he came out on the right side of the academic ledger. Definitely not a wonderman, Mac nevertheless won awards in football, boxing, and track, which may account for the attraction he has for women. His big com- plaint was that women confused him, and didn ' t write often enough. Always ready for a prank, or an excuse to knock off studying, Mac ' s sunny smile and earnestness will stand him good in whatever career fate chooses for him. WALTER DAUGHERTY McCORD, JR. (ty New Rochelle, New York LJo we have juice tomorrow? " These words meant only one thing, Mac was just winding up another letter or book. After three years, Mac was still writing four or five a week to the same town in New Jersey. Although the black sheep of an all Army family. Bud entered into the spirit of the Navy and did a lot of work for the class. As for sports, he followed them all, but for actual participa- tion, other activities occupied most of his attention. As a member of the Lucky Bag staff. Bud ' s abilities were most gratefully recognized and appreciated. Mac ' s drive and enthusiasm will carry him far in the service. ROBERT EDWARD McLEOD -rjj New York, New York W hen Mac came to Annapolis, he was a pessimist. When he left, he was an optimist which is typical of the changes Navy " U " made in the big boy. For three years he paddled his way through that old Navy fraternity Sigma Sigma (sub squad). This coupled with an interest in photography, varied athletics, and the best books of the day gobbled up his spare time. But in taking his time, they gave him in return a sense of determination, a concept of fair play, and a well balanced outlook on life — qualities which are destined to come to the fore in the trials and stresses which he has yet to face. PHILIP STANLEY McMANUS (- HoLYOKE, Massachusetts 1 oungster year was fruit! " Mac should know, because that was the year he jumped five hundred numbers. But don ' t get the idea that he was a cut-throat; his activities were many and varied. During plebe and youngster years he was active in battalion lacrosse, gym, and swimming. Mac also was an ardent sailing enthusiast; anything pertaining to boats got his instant attention. Then, too, he was always ready for a hand of bridge, an interesting conversation, or a bunk drill with a good book. Holyoke lost a fine man in Mac, for his cheer- fulness and optimism was a cheery encouragement through three years.

" Navy Jack, " " Tiny, " and " Mac " were only a few of the names by which he was known to almost every member of the regiment. The easy nature that hid behind his great size won friends readily, and every plebc from his native " Smoky City " found refuge with Mac. His cheerful smile and pleasant manner will win for him the same success in the fleet that he has enjoyed at the academy. Gi GLENN ADOLPH MEDICK Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania rlcnn was one of our sincerest Navy blue and gold men. No, he didn ' t become a star athlete, but he had potentialities. He was one of our unsung heroes who made himself a martyr to gymnasium work, swimming, and physical development. The Movie Gang, German Club, Boat Club, and two years on the Reception Committee rounded out his contributions to our organizations. He might have starred if only that certain one had given him the inspiration. He was considered by all who knew him as dependable, thorough, and ambitious. The Navy and her sons should hear a lot from Glenn. ' DAVID LUCIUS MERRILL „ White Plains, New York r rom New York to the Naval Academy was quite a jump as far as entertainment went, but Dave managed to retain most of his old hobbies and even add a few new ones. Among those new hobbies were photography and beating the system. In photography he was successful enough to become photographic editor of the Trident, first class year. His great success in beating the system was clearly evidenced by the Black " N " emblazoned on his bathrobe. Nevertheless, his ardour in pursuit of this fascinating occupation was never diminished. Although Dave didn ' t star in academics, he was never bothered by this necessary evil. LEWIS WILLIAM METZGER , Germantown, Pennsylvania 1 exas born and Pennsylvania bred. Bill entered the academy after a year ' s arduous labor in prep school. His work had just begun.

The desire for the sea eventually became the stronger and led him to the Naval Academy. In sports, gym became his one and only love — nearly every afternoon he was in the gym trying to learn new tricks on the side horse. In the evenings, his time was divided between magazines, studies, and thoughts of his one and only girl. His life at the academy was smooth — never any academic worries. His friendUness and fine sense of humor will make him a good shipmate in any branch of the service. ANTHONY JOSEPH MILLER A New York, New York real New Yorker if ever there was one, " Rosey " successfully avoided too much indoctrination by the Naval Academy system. Gifted with a typical Bronx accent, and crested by the salt of the foamy Hudson, he proved to be a real sailor by his Boat Club activities, week-end ketch trips being his main interest. Although Rosey had many other diversions such as the Reception Committee, Radio Club, Eli Culbertson ' s system, and the avoidance of textbooks and exercise, his first love was running his four wives who despite such annoyances knew him to be a true friend and the best shipmate a fellow could possibly have. STANLEY MONTUNNAS -t-rj Utica, New York W hen Stan wasn ' t sparring at the boxing loft, he was usually side- stepping the Exec. Department. An advocate of a little work and more play, he believed in diverting the mind from such tedious duties as academics. Salty claimed that dragging sweet, young things did the trick nicely. When this delightful pastime could not be pursued, he ventured into other fields. A serious reader, he occasionally weakened and indulged in a gruesome mystery. He was known to smoke horrible mixtures, and to play loudly, what he laughingly termed " solid stuff. " Stan hopes to sprout naval wings someday. Best of luck, shipmate!

He possesses a unique abihty to make and keep friends, is a good sport, and has a pleasant word for everyone he meets. During plebe and youngster years, the Radio Club, Boat Club, and Movie gang made up his activities. His favorite memories are of Youngster Cruise, where he made most of his friends.

" Although the sea beckons him and threatens to hold him for some time, a peaceful home in the country of Rhode Island will be his goal. Norm had a natural tendency for sports, at times participating in baseball and wresthng, and at all times keeping abreast of the news of the sports world. His favorite means of relaxation, however, was thinking of his girl while listening to any Krupa recording going full blast. Norm has the submarine urge, but, wherever he is, he will always be a good shipmate. FRANK MATHILD NELSON -p, Belmont, Massachusetts r rank ' s perseverance was one quality that should carry him a long way. He DID star. And it was due a great part to him that the Second Company had a tough Softball team two years running. Frank was good in the field and also at the plate. The Log staff, photography for the Lucky Bag, the Math, Spanish, and Boat Clubs — all claimed him as a member. During the winter months, the squash courts found him a steady visitor. Although he was big and brawny, the gym tests sometimes had him foiled. Frank did have one fault; he never had spare money after he started saving for a miniature. Watch him go!

Tommy Dorsey had nothing on Knobby as far as playing the trombone was concerned, and when the orchestra rehearsed he was al- ways in there " tootin ' " his best.There was little time left for his hobby, photography; but he still managed to squeeze in a creditable number of splendid candid shots. ALBERT EDWARD OBERG » Brooklyn, New York l is probably the only man in the academy who was offered an appointment to West Point after he had completed his plebe year here. The Navy ' s gain became the Army ' s loss. After the shock of his new life had worn off, Al plunged into almost all the sports in rotation. Football, baseball, basketball, and Softball all received his attention but none could keep him. Handball and sail- ing became his main recreational activities. As a member of the Hop Committee, he rendered yeoman service and wore that sword belt with great aplomb. Al ' s steady equilibrium was upset only by a letter from N. C. or the defeat of the Dodgers. JAMES MICHAEL O ' BRIEN Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Otill water runs deep and Jim is one proof of the truth of the adage. A quiet, modest, unassuming individual, he has taken each hurdle in its turn, some easier than others, but he has made each jump. Possessed with a love of athletics, sleeping and long blond hair, Jim can be found any afternoon either on the football field or on his bunk dreaming of his gal back home. Hard and con- tinual work has placed Jim among us, just as it has kept him at the academy — a mark of the determination and confidence which is imbued in his heart and which will carry this handsome Irishman to success anywhere.

Although handicapped somewhat by " sub-work " and a love for a good friendly session, or a cozy bunk, he did manage to make the baseball squad and to play a red hot game at third base. Jake ' s conscientious and quiet nature, his warm sense of humor plus a good portion of New England wit, made him a swell fellow to know. WILLIAM CLARENCE PATTERSON -pj Syracuse, New York rSill hails from the land of mountains and streams — where you can go skiing all winter and canoeing all summer — or so Bill says. How a rebel (me) and a Yankee (Bill) could ever get along together is quite a paradox. But, we did! Perhaps it was because of his ready smile, or maybe on account of a witty phrase now and then, and again it might have been because he was always ready to lend a helping hand. His activities were many and varied. The Reception Committee was his pet — always was he off to see some visiting team. Then there was the Quarterdeck Society. And in the sports he was a plebe and batt cross country runner and an outdoor rifle man. WILLIAM THOMAS PEACH, III y East Orange, New Jersey It seems he dropped down from Rutgers and forgot to leave — well, he ' s Bill now — no more Joe College. Bill started at once to show the boys how Rutgers played lacrosse. He made Tommie ' s team Plebe year, and Youngster year he joined up with the varsity. A little soccer helped keep him busy in his free time. With that first stripe came dragging, and we soon discovered Bill ' s main interest. However, he was quite a savoir too, and earned stars his upper class years. A born striper, there ' s little doubt as to Bill ' s future. Air-minded, Bill has hopes of Pensacola, so it is in the air that he shall obtain his success. : : c fdjLAcrX " i .e.-Axtj 5W .smmsmB mam 1: fe.,w.ajU . T l r C.

Though he lacked the benefits of previous college work, he just missed the select group of star men each year with a final average of 3.33. His abilities and his time have not been solely confined to the books, for each season of the year found him actively engaged in some form of athletics, with his interest centered on baseball during the spring months. His inexhaustible energy drove him to strive continually to better himself and the Service to which he has wholeheartedly devoted himself DONALD EDWARD PERRY -t-rj Manchester, New Hampshire W ith a bronzed face and a happy grin, this Yankee sailor emerged from youngster cruise as the " Moke " — but his New England accent gave him away! A charter member of the " crew cut club " the lad ' s hair-do was his pride and joy. Sports of any kind appealed to this natural athlete, but dragging blondes was his real delight, and judging by the daily mail, Don enjoyed considerable favor in many a feminine eye. His greatest achievement, and an enviable one in this Navy of ours, is his design for living — that satisfied feeling of having the situation well under control and still be enjoying life to the fullest. Ai MELVIN CLYDE PHILLIPS MoRETOWN, Vermont klthough usually quiet and reserved, but determined as the solid granite of his native Green Mountains, Mel would argue with everyone on any subject. And usually you could be sure he was right. Activities in the Math and Radio Clubs took much of his time. Plebe year, he was a member of the small bore rifle team. Every spring, when not on the sub squad, he could be found at the baseball field, earning his " N " as manager. He was a diligent worker on the Lucky Bag staff. When not writing to his O.A.O. in Vermont, Mel, a star man, could be found more than wiUing to aid his less savvy classmates. o. ROBERT REID PRICE Buck Hill Falls, Pennsylvania ' ut of the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania came our singing troubadour of Bancroft Hall. Reid was never hard to find for he could be heard from morning to night singing the latest popular songs. He was very active in the choir and glee club, and whenever any musical event was at the academy one was sure to find Reid there. Youngster year found him reading " Gone With the Wind " during exam week and the academic department almost had him re-reading youngster year. However, neither the academic nor the executive department could daunt his happy-go-lucky spirit and he remained as carefree as theday he entered. [XM CO. U 2 : . i . C. CHARLES DESARMEAUX PULVER Avon, Connecticut D. " had the natural ability to succeed. His carefree and happy manner gave him a grand disposition. He was always full of good humor and ready to meet the " system " halfway. Plebe year baffled and dewildered him, as it did the rest of us, but he found himself Youngster year. He loved music and was active in the NA-io and orchestra third and fourth class years. To him the Navy was a big inspiration; what he was exposed to he learned. From the academy he inherited the traditions of the " men who go down to the sea in ships. " His loyalty and interest should make him a good officer. Wi WILLIAM ANTHONY RACETTE Brooklyn, New York mning an " N " in varsity crew during his Youngster year was just typical of Will when he had an urge to accomplish something. Plebe sports occupied him, too, for he rowed in a plebe shell. As a first and second classman Bill still had dates with the crew house and a long oar which kept him pulling in a varsity shell. Fortunately, it so happened, that academics were dealt with as successfully as athletics. But what ' s really important. Bill ' s a plenty swell fellow with a confidence and amiability that makes him well liked everywhere. That same spirit of fight displayed behind an oar will carry him through the roughest storms. Ar ARTHUR GARFIELD RAND, JR. Fall River, Massachusetts Lrt didn ' t have to say much before one was certain that he came from Massachusetts. During his stay at the academy, he tried to develop a more cosmopolitan accent, but he never could get the Yankee out of Bar Harbour and Boston. His prime interests are fishing and hunting — both of which were fore- shortened by his stay at the academy, so he had to rely on his next interest — sleep and lots of it. After youngster year, Art had no fear of " trees " — they were just trivial things that one had to take in one ' s stride. Every spring found him playing battalion lacrosse trying to get rid of the fever that predominates at that time of the year. Ai WILLIAM THEODORE RAPP Irvington, New Jersey Llong back in the summer of 1939, Irvington, New Jersey sent chubby, red-headed, " Barney " to join the boys in Navy blue. It is difficult to say whether football, baseball, golf, or a young lady came first in his mind, but the order undoubtedly made a cycle with the seasons of the year. In spite of all these many distractions, " Red " seldom had academic troubles. His ambition was to have his just share of the pleasures and comforts of life. With his warm, ever friendly personality and glowing good humor, he cannot help but be successful in this nation ' s first life of defense, the Navy. " S LEON HERBERT RATHBUN, JR. East Aurora, New York )horty, " that confirmed cynic, used to express himself freely on all subjects, even expounding his views in the Trident. He liked to circulate around and meet people, so he was quite at home on the Reception Committee. He also devoted his talents, so called, to the Lucky Bag, and found time to be an active member of the Boat Club. He snaked happily and regularly at all hops, but was seldom affected by anything less than a rich, repeat rich, blond. His one love, we fear, was a slide rule; and he exasperated his wives by reading Cosmo and starring anyway. JOSEPH BEHREND RECHEN TTj Brewster, New York When Jeb ' s 6 ' 2 " , 190 pounds of brawn came in from the fleet, he was shanghaied over to Hubbard Hall the second day of plebe year. There he remained ever since, working with the strong-backed, weak-minded boys, suc- cessfully earning his " N. " From there he occasionally breezed back to the room only long enough to remark, " Steam is fruit, " or " How long to formation? " He rarely cracked a book, but his mechanical abihty was invaluable in keeping the record changer in order. His collection of classical records showed his liking for good music, at least what he called good music. NICHOLAS REVOTSKIE ,-p, Ashland, Pennsylvania i his tall, dark, and handsome Russian came to the academy with a sea-bag over his shoulder and a head full of common sense. Two years at sea on the Savannah had rounded out a sound background in a Pennsylvania coal mining town and sharpened his innate faculty for academics so that our course was not very difficult. Fortunately for us, Nick was not a snake. His heart was captured long ago by the girl back home and he spent most of his dragging time being faith- ful. His frankness and sincerity, coupled with a wide, winning smile, have won, and will continue to win, many fast friends for him. SPENCER EVERETT ROBBINS iiQ Wellesly, Massachusetts Opence " is never more satisfied than when he is settled down after a stiff workout in the gym, with a solid chow and half a dozen cups of Java under his belt, a fragrant pipe in his mouth, and a good soHd 2.2 to sink his teeth into and " pull sat. " Plebe cross country and track rather bored the irrepressible good nature of this popular Massachusetts " snake " ; so voluminous correspondence and muscle-building occupied the recreation hours of his upper years. His ambition — to see action and come out on top of it — insures the Navy a top-notch fighting oflScer, and his future shipmates a courageous, cheerful companion. S 4e4. , EDGAR ALLEN ROBIE „ COLLINGSWOOD, NeW JeRSEY ilid, often referred to by his wives as " Eager Edgar, " hails from New Jersey. Listed among his activities were soccer, lacrosse, softball, Reception Committee, and Associate Business Manager of the Lucky Bag. Expert rifle and great guns ribbons bedeck his service blou, and a ready smile his face. Ed has been the object of much running by his wives but has given out his share in return. He ' d rather dance than eat and never missed an opportunity to do a little jitter- bugging with one of his favorit e partners. He was a pleasant and agreeable room- mate and should continue to be a successful naval officer. SAMUEL JAMES ROBINSON, JR. u - Seaford, Delaware Lyome and trip it as ye go on the light fantastic toe, " a quotation often said by " Robbie " brings out two of his most prominent likes — dancing and poetry. When not just plain relaxing, he has other interests such as fishing, stamp collecting, reading, and writing letters. Besides being a member of the Reception Committee, Jim took an active part in the Boat Club and, because of his interest in sailing, he was in the intermural whaleboat competition. Being fond of ex- pressions full of sentiment, he has taken a part of his fraternity creed for his own motto: " To believe in the life of love. . . . " Or HENRY FREDERICK RODNER, JR Philadelphia, Pennsylvania ne summer day in ' 39 a handsome, dapper young civilian entered the academy — and the system immediately began to work on Rod. First, they cut off his blond curly locks, and ever since that disastrous day he has been spending most of his time trying to keep just one step ahead of the game, an avocation which has kept him safely out of the clutches of such pitfalls as trees, sub squads, weak squads and — no we can ' t mention the extra duty squad because Rod just couldn ' t seem to keep the Executive department as happy as those around him. His many friends will miss his carefree nature, but hope to meet him again in the fleet. Jc JOHN ROWLAND-FISHER Fairfield, Connecticut lohnny came to us from the bustle of the great " Nutmeg State " and the arms of beautiful women. For three years he dithered about the hallowed halls, spreading the word, bum or otherwise. He has awakened the chapel sleepers many times with his golden tenor and was one of the principal pitfalls in the paths of unwary fair ones. Fish never quite reached the heights of stardom, " juice " being the major headache. To quote Rollo, " This electricity stuff is just a fad. It can ' t last! Besides, who ever saw a farad anyway?

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania xfter a cruise in the Merchant Marine and a year in the Naval Reserve, Joe bid the " Smoky City " goodbye and joined the Navy for good. Plebe year was completed successfully with only minor clashes with the Academic departments, and after that it was smooth sailing as far as academics went. Crew took most of his time plebe year, but he also took an active interest in varsity track, battalion football, and photography to fill in his spare hours. You could find him at every hop or any dragging affair having a fine time, as he always will. Speed and efficiency are Joe ' s greatest assets. GEORGE ANTHONY SCHLICHTE, JR. „ J Lexington, Massachusetts Well I don ' t see why this should be a dotted line. . . . What is the valence of hydrogen? " Yes, it was Squeaky studying again. Of course, he did more than ask questions. In the fall he played batallion soccer; in the winter he managed the wrestling team; and in the spring he called the stroke for the battalion crew. He claimed that his hobbies were photography and studying steam, but he was very capable at thinking up puns and wisecracks. On the intellectual side. Squeaky was accredited with three years service with the Newman Club and two years service with the Reception Committee. . . . Aid to navigators — " One wrench and a gear wheel from the starboard yardarm indicates that Squeaky is aboard. " Stay clear. JOSEPH JULIUS SCHMIDT y Philadelphia, Pennsylvania J -Square left peaceful Philadelphia in search of excitement — to be a midshipmite. Crew, Log Photo Staff, German Club, and battalion track sum up his activities. Inactivities — A love of music — Goodman to Stokowski; Winter exercise was optional — horizontal engineering, compulsory. A pseudo-redmike, he seldom failed to attend hops for a weekly spot of feminine pulchritude. Joe was an anti — quote, " Whatever it is I ' m against it. " Concurring with his roommates, he thinks quiet is definitely the stuff to have around. The Navy Medical Board waived his eye survey in ' 41. Reason: The Navy needs more men like him. JOSEPH AMBROSE SESTAK Coatesville, Pennsylvania Undaunted by his lack of size, this " Mighty Mite " composed of boundless energy, more than makes up for it by his fighting heart and determina- tion. This tenacity has earned him an " N " as Navy ' s varsity coxswain. During the crew off-season, tennis, wrestling, and basketball bring out his versatifity. On the social side, a knack of handling any situation gracefully combined with his ready smile and gift of conversation made " Little Joe " a valuable member of the Reception Committee. A cheerful disposition, natural courtesy, an interest in others, along with his ease of making friends made a combination hard to beat. p us. k ■ ■•_. % (jOMlJU- JLtv. MORRIS VINTON SHIVELY ,( Yeadon, Pennsylvania ohive " is one fellow who didn ' t join the Navy to see the world — -he has abready seen most of it. Born in Abington, Illinois, " Shive " is a marine junior, which explains his travels. It was by way of the Marine Reserve that he came into the academy. His great love is athletics — all types. An athlete himself, he has a keen interest in sports and a vast store of athletic information. Among his many other worthwhile achievements, " Shive " is the best rifle and pistol shot in the Class of ' 43. Athletics have kept him too busy for women, but women have been at- tracted by his tall, good looks and a pair of dimples. SAMUEL WENDELL WILLISTON SHOR ,( Cold Spring, New York Oouth-West by West, " " Sam, " or " Willie " spent his spare time at the Naval Academy in practicing the arts of sculling, fly-tying, and falconry. Second class summer he brought his falcon back from his home in New York state, and managed to inveigle a navy junior in the Yard into keeping the bird for him. At the crew shed he kept a single shell, and he hid bags of feathers for fly-tying around the room until a D.O. inspected them one day and left a note marked " Feathers adrift " in the midst of a cloud of down. He was always willing to give extra instruction to unsat classmates, and was kept very busy around exam periods. EDWIN LUTHER SIBERT -. - Rio De Janeiro, Brazil ilow Ed got those grades with the amount of studying he did used to amaze his friends; for he was always ready to drop his books to play host to the visiting fireman. Ed ' s predominant interest in life seemed to be sailing; he made his letter easily his first year on the varsity squad. The only things that kept him from dinghy sailing on the Severn were storms and drags, the storms running a poor second to the drags. As a plebe, he won his numerals in outdoor rifle. Winter afternoons found him either working out in the wrestling loft or writing out statements for conduct reports. ANDREW KARL SIMMONS » Austin, Pennsylvania i-fter finishing high school, Andy set a steady course toward Annapolis. He strived two years to obtain the appointment which started him in his chosen profession. Although seldom seen at hops, he was always ready to en- liven a conversation with an interesting tale from New York, Caracas, or Boston. In the field of athletics, Andy majored in tennis. Nearly every spring and summer afternoon he can be found on the courts holding down one of the top positions on the battalion team. We have enjoyed having Andy with us these last few years and look forward to another cruise with him in the not too distant future. c ic4 4, lA Ji W , y|vJU cA l«C fvw A w, rVMj CHARLES CHESTER SLATER _ Northampton, Massachusetts Introducing Chuck, the fellow you can ' t help but like, for he always greets you with a smile; and remarkably enough, three years at the Naval Academy hasn ' t changed that smile a bit. Every spring a sudden surge of ambition sent him scurrying over to the boathouse to stroke it out, but more often, afternoons found his beaming face in the canteen line. Spells of golf and tennis rounded out his list of activities. Academically, Bull and Math were in his pet category of hates, but just take a look at the records and you ' ll find that Chuck was no bucket. CLAYTON WAITE SMITH " X 7 Schenectady, New York Where is it, let me fix it! " That ' s " Smitty " for you. Be it motor- cycles, guns, or a leaky faucet, just mention it to him and worry no more about it. Though his interests are mainly mechanical, he will search the battalion for a good mystery story, and of a sunny afternoon there is nothing he ' d rather do than to let the frontiersman in that lanky frame of his take charge and roam the woods. His analytical mind never seems to take much interest in the more deadly of the species, but he can cut a classmate ' s throat with the best of them. LEONARD GREGORY SMITH, JR. J Philadelphia, Pennsylvania i- . G. arrived from the metropolis of Philadelphia wearing a mop of jet black hair and one of the biggest smiles the U.S.N. A. has had the pleasure to see. During his stay on the Severn, Smitty annexed a world of popularity — that which comes only from sincerity, honesty, and keen frank wisdom. He cared little about class standing, and a smooth drag or fine sail could invariably turn him from erudition. His analytical brain, however, kept him in the first century of his class. The Navy Department will remember his mental prowess, but it ' s that big grin to which his classmates will hold. A grand liberty companion, may we meet often. C.(?. MJjuf CHARLES WILSON SMYERS r-f Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 1 hat salty air tasted pretty good to " Chuck " while cruising with the Naval Reserve, so he left his home in Pennsylvania and came to us with a firm determination to be a Naval officer. Although not an athlete at heart. Chuck kept in trim by taking an active part in battalion soccer, gym, and track. During the more restful hours, he enjoyed reading, listening to good music, clay modeling, and working with the Reception Committee. Ambition, diligence, and an ability to face any task with a big broad grin are a few of the traits that will carry Chuck successfully through life and a Naval career. C . Jl u J 5 . iuK k ■ Va_ .a.

Never have his thoughts strayed far from his happy home in upper New York. Some time, however, must be used by everyone for something besides pleasant thoughts of the past, so Gordie took to playing battalion tennis in the afternoons and was one of the mainstays of the team for three years. When not playing tennis, he wrote letters, which always seemed to bear fruit and net voluminous replies. Sometimes sat and sometimes not, but ever friendly and easy going. " Sure I ' ll drag your gal ' s friend! " — That was Gordie. HAROLD DUFFIELD SOLLENBERGER ■jj- Fayetteville, Pennsylvania lie came to us from the hills of Pennsylvania — " Fayetteville, just east of Chambersburg. " A winning smile and charming personality soon won him a host of friends. During his first summer, the fencing team discovered a deter- mined member in their ranks. Even an unusually intelligent appearance didn ' t fool the academic departments, but they did recognize a dependable student. When it came to social life he was never in the background, his address book was an unlimited source of supply. However, in all his work and play, one goal lay before him — Navy Wings. With happy landings we ' ll see you there, Gus. ROBERT ELMER STAFF y Claremont, New Hampshire it was Bob ' s packing his winning smile and manner to Annapolis that caused the " Old Man of the Mountains " to take on his stolid stare. Even his consequent frequent skirmishes with the academic departments did little to daunt his spirit, and his dashing figure manifested itself at most of the hops. His natural agility and stamina were not constrained to the ballroom, however, for Bob earned his numerals in battalion boxing, in plebe and varsity soccer, he sailed our " big boats, " and he lent a hand as Advertising Manager on the Trident staff. On the Nav bridge or in the wardroom, Bob ' s companionship will be priceless. ROBERT EDWARD STARK rj-, LoDi, New Jersey 1 he Boston Red Sox, a good book, a gym side horse, and a few select symphonies are all it takes to keep Bob satisfied. Quick witted, and possessing the handy ability to excel in everything he attempted. Bob found little trouble in standing at the top of his class. He enjoyed singing and many a silence has been broken by his rendition of " Figaro " or the equivalent. On Sundays, he diverted this talent into useful channels and could be found in the choir. Bob has preferred a life free from the delusion of women, but confidentially we think he ' s just waiting for the right one to come along. (2.

Swimming, indoor rifle, flying, dinghies and yachts left httle time for the frivolous joys of the liberty hounds. Few men saw less of Annapolis and more of the water than " Navy Davy.

MITCHELL PHINEAS STROHL -pj Allentown, Pennsylvania 1 lebe summer failed to dampen " Mike ' s " enthusiasm for hiking, and almost any clear afternoon on a weekend he might be found tramping along the banks of the Severn or across the fields of Arundel. Mike had but one fault to find with life at the academy; the O.A.O. could make it down but once a month. In spite of this heart-rending grievance he managed to have a friendly word and ready smile for everyone. Although never one to cut throat, his steady hard work has gone far in keeping him out of difficulties with academic departments. We know his tenacity of purpose will take him far in the Navy. ROBERT MALCOLM STUART _ New York, New York It is hard to say exactly where Bob hailed from, because he has called many places home. At the present time, however, he is partial to New York. This wide contact which Bob has had added greatly to the cosmopolitan poHsh in his make-up. Bob showed himself to be capable both academically and practi- cally. He was versatile in his athletics — football, handbaU, swimming, and golf taking most of his spare time. Then, too, there was the executive side as Bob was our choice for Company Representative. We always found him ready for a game of bridge and — well, just plain good company. TED NIER SWAIN r-p WiLLiSTON Park, Long Island i ed came to the academy from Williston Park, Long Island. He is one of those boys who, once acquainted with, is never forgotten. Ted attacked everything with the greatest enthusiasm, especially athletics. Destined to become a good football player, injuries forced Ted into other fields of athletics. In lacrosse, he played with the varsity for two years. When not studying, Ted could always be found engaging in some sort of activity. His ambition to get ahead made ac- ademics seem easy. His obliging manner and personaUty make everyone like him. His strength and versatility make him a man to be followed. ; -.: QIoaL Q. ' ay v . A£Ua Cx 9 " S U , AA CHARLES ARTHUR TAYLOR, JR.

Although his back yard wasn ' t the Dodger right field, to hear him praise the Brooklyn Bums, one would be quite apt to think so. Known for his humor and baseball interest, there was never a dull moment when the Chas was around. His serious side was seldom seen by his classmates, however, and the Navy admittedly comes first. Plebe skinny and math were close to the line, but since then the weather has been clearer and is looking better as his Naval career progresses. May it continue to progress as rapidly and as consistently. w(Mi Ut-« « it I d o FRANCIS PUGH THOMAS y At Large In t rue Navy Junior fashion, Frank learned his ABC ' s in schools from Newport to Honolulu. But, broad as his education has been, he has had his troubles with the fairer sex. Nevertheless, dragging rain or shine, he keeps at it, always believing that SHE will be found just over the horizon. Throughout the year, Tommie ' s leisure hours have been spent mostly in swimming, while " quiet " sails in the ketches have lured him away over the weekends. Upon his graduation, his first bid is " twenty thousand leagues under the sea. " Can it be his love of submarines or a childhood sweetheart in New London? WALTER JOSEPH TONER -, - Rutherford, New Jersey W alter brought his varied " Joe College " interests with him to the academy. Truly metropolitan and always well versed in current events via his " New Yorker " etc., he was always ready for an intelligent " bull session. " A " bug " on physical culture, he made sure of his daily workout on the track or in some other form of athletics. Circulating about the hops and all social events came natural to Walt and he enjoyed showing all the drags a good time. Untroubled in gaining his 3.0, he contributed his share to extra-curriculars, working on the Press Detail and writing for the Log and Trident. His first passion has always been to have his own bridge under him. FRANCIS MICHAEL TULLY -J-, New York, New York Trank never had much to say about it all. Quiet, conservative, methodical, studious — these are the traits we knew him by. Possessing a keen mind, he made a habit of keeping clear of academic worries. An enviable collection of this our life was his favorite hobby, dreaming his favorite pastime. One could hardly find an Irish temper more under control. Frank ' s love for the finer things in life and his ability to enjoy all that comes his way will always keep him on the crest of the wave. Those of us who may be fortunate enough to be among his shipmates later in Ufe will find him one of the best. j i ' Zl .i a-i y ai XX L. ROBERT H.

His energies were then directed to reading, with a noticeable fondness for biographies. His studies suffered somewhat as a result, but he always managed to keep himself a com- fortable number of jumps ahead of the Academic departments. Another of Bob ' s obsessions was unfailingly to take the opposite view to the popular one in every argu- ment, and then to proceed to win his point — to the utter exasperation of his op- ponents. His sense of reasoning and excellent wit could give no man better qualities. JAMES DONALD UNGER J Long Branch, New Jersey im came to the academy already a seasoned sailor from the fleet, with a true love for the sea in his heart, and the ambition to become an officer foremost in mind. He is a man any commanding officer would like to have on board his ship. When work was to be accomplished, he gave it all he had, and when it was time to play he was always ready for action. An all around athlete of no mean abiHty, he derived most enjoyment from swimming, lacrosse, and wrestling. His pleasing personality has won him many friends at the academy, and we are sure it will continue to do so after he is out in the fleet, this time an ensign. AMERIGO JAMES VESGOVI -, J Raritan, New Jersey V enturing for a change of environment, Ves joined the U.S. Marine Gorps. Destiny had him shipped to sea, and while on the U.S.S. Boise he crossed the " Line, " and a salty " shellback " is he. Coming to the academy without any prep schooling, Ves did very well capturing stars his plebe and youngster years. Uncertain as to his athletic ability, he tried track and basketball his plebe year, and switched to wrestling his youngster year. Summing up, Ves has worked hard and deserves much credit for the accompUshments he has attained. Perhaps his exertions will bear sweeter fruit in later years. VITO LOUIS VITUGCI -J-, Brooklyn, New York X resh from the Dodger reservation, Vito wasted no time in making a name for himself as the friendliest and funniest little man in these parts. Although he is very earnest in his ambition to be an " All American " football player and to succeed as a Naval officer. Falstaff ' s bubbling sense of humor tagged him as the court jester. Beneath his rotund exterior and jolly manner, Vito housed a store of knowledge on innumerable subjects. Luckily, he has not been spoiled by his many accomplishments.

This last achievement made him an invaluable friend to many of his classmates who did not comprehend so easily. Although not the " N-star " type of athlete, he managed to play plebe lacrosse and company softball. Joe even found time for the Reception Committee and the editorial staff of the Log. During his afternoons on the " radiator squad, " he could usually be found playing bridge. With this background Joe should never be at a loss for something to do.

In his first year he splashed his way to fame as a member of the plebe swimming team. Youngster year found him boxing, and, during his last years, he also engaged in wrestling and battahon football.

ScRANTON, Pennsylvania Uick hails from the Keystone State; he came to us with two years of engineering behind him at Lehigh, so the academics have been the least of his worries, and he has had ample time for outside activities. If not dragging that O.A.O., he can usually be found playing ball. A sports fan with no equal, he settles all our arguments with the actual statistics. Dick has a perpetual smile and a subtle wit which have won him many friends. Someday he hopes to be flying for this man ' s Navy. ROBERT CUSTER WOODSIDE " XIT ' Newport, Rhode Island W ho can I drag this weekend? " This phrase distinguished Custer who for two years never missed a weekend or an academy function. Studies never intcrferred with any of his extra-curricular activities and were taken, like every- thing else, in his stride. Time which could not be devoted to " snaking " pursuits with the accompanying volumes of letter-writing was given to his other love, sailing. Witness his racing in all of our small boats. With his sunny disposition, he made a popular member of the Reception Committee. This virtue, his open- mindedness, intelligence, and a capacity for hard work marked him a success ADAM LOUIS WOZNIAK, JR. y Dunkirk, New York i_ ooking back over the three years we have been together, I can ' t say that fate could have picked a better fellow for my roommate. Being a sand- blower has not in the least bit prevent him from taking a stab at, and doing rather well in, nearly every sport offered here at the academy. Those afternoons of hard work with the battalion soccer team have borne their reward in an acquired reputation as an athlete. He was quite the " Casanova " with our fairer sex; and from what I gather, wasn ' t called " Woo " for nothing. I hope we ' ll see a lot of him in the fleet, for he has been a real pal. lUSta Business Manager, J. M. Barrett Managing Editor, F. J. Reh Associate Business Manager, E. A. Robie O. F.

Although he did not participate in any varsity sport, he has been active in all forms of intra-mural athletics such as battalion football and company softball. Beginning with his youngster year. Bob has taken active interest in the Boat Club. Bob rates dancing as his favorite hobby and when not taking part in any extra-curricular activity, he can be seen practicing new dance steps in his room. HARRY LEE ARNEST, JR. -Tjrj Arlington, Virginia VV hen Lee joined our class after two years of pre-med work at George Washington University, Virginia lost a doctor, but the Navy gained a potentially fine officer. Though he engaged in plebe and battalion boxing and did some sailing on the side, Harry ' s favorite sport, principal hobby, and prime interest was dragging, and all that pertains to it. Witness the fact that he hardly ever missed a weekend and was chairman of the ' 43 Class Hop Committee. With a very pleasing personality, and such industry and perseverance as to be a never failing source of wonder to his roommate, Lee cannot fail to be a success. C Ue Jf. Q. m 4x. - o r . $5 t£ t .

On or off the lacrosse field, he was ready, willing, and able to mix it with anybody as can be attested by the trail of broken lacrosse sticks that he left in his wake. " Norby " was gen- erosity personified, ever willing to lend a helping hand or to brush away the blues. Many times the halls have resounded with " Hey, Aub! " His reply being invariably a big grin. With fighting spirit, ability to get along with people, and determination to attain his goal, Norbert is insured of success. Wi TURNER WESTRAY BATTLE Rocky Mount, North Carolina hen he entered the Naval Academy, Bat ' s father told him to give up " wine, women, and song " — Bat quit singing. He enjoyed the hops as much as anyone and rarely missed showing up with a 4.0 drag. Always willing to argue in favor of the superior social advantages of California, he fervently prayed for a West Coast ship. Aeronautical Engineering occupied his more serious thoughts, and golf took care of his physical aspirations. A dark southerner with natural charm, an altogether " easy to get along with fellow, " Turner and his enthralling tales of Hollywood will be a welcomed addition to any wardroom in the fleet. -?l tMe.

West Virginia sent us a pilot, a voice for the choir, a swimmer, a real roommate, and a competent student. B.M. combined social and academic pursuits into that happy medium for which we all strive. His serious nature and sophisticated knowledge hidden by a buoyant spirit should make him the kind of officer this Navy needs. His first love is naval aviation in which he intends to specialize, and we ' ll be glad to row him aboard our ship any time. BERNARD BENNETT J Washington, D. C. Introducing Bernie, the lad who proved very ably that he could " beat the system " by always keeping at least one jump ahead of the Executive Department. In the fall we found him on the soccer field, valiantly defending Navy ' s goal, while in the spring, golf and tennis rounded out his athletics. His extra-curricular activities included work on the Log, Lucky Bag, and Trident. Although he did not take academics too seriously, Bernie always managed to keep sat with a minimum of study. His friendly attitude, sunny disposition, and happy smile add to his worthiness as a swell classmate and fine shipmate. MILTON DAWSON BENNETT „, -- Rocky Mount, North Carolina iVlickey, " as he is known to everyone, came from North Carolina three years ago with a determination to succeed and the ability to do it. He showed his prowess on the wrestling mat by becoming a champion in his first year of varsity competition. Then there was his reputation with the Academic Depart- ments as the gentleman scholar with the remarkable accent — North Carolina ' s contribution to that famous Southern drawl. To the ancient Greeks, the ideal man was one who was religious and excelled in scholastics and athletics. The " Mick " was tops in all these, and we feel sure that a real future lies ahead for him in the service. HENRY BAXTER BOTTOMS -rjY Margarettsville, North Carolina With a firm belief that " Sherman ' s march was a retreat " and a rebel yell on his lips, Baxter came here after two years at Elon College. A southern gentleman with a southern accent, he would argue endlessly for his South. His never troubling too much about the future tripped him in the academic hurdles, but he came through successfully. Track was his sport; Baxter liked high-jumping even better than " shooting the breeze. " Water, however, was absolutely not his element as any member of the sub squad could testify. He would Usten to your story and offer sympathy, and if you needed a friend, you could count on him. i i I I OAy - Tf, ryuttc-, ©- og A t .-vvitt ' y:; iZ ' H oo 1? tr-Ox -yl U, c .

One of our Class ' s best exponents on swing, he was evidence that academy life could be made enjoyable. Even a military prep school background couldn ' t stiffen him out, and without a great concern for the threats of the Academic department, he spent most of his time playing the latest by Benny Goodman. " R.G. " was stung during 2 c leave and got a greater thrill when she telephoned him, than he did in winning a place on the battalion wrestling team. His genial nature and ever-ready com- radeship combined with a love of the sea make it a unanimous " shipmate " from all hands. FRANCIS XAVIER BRADY Baltimore, Maryland scholar, athlete, and all-around good fellow may best describe Frank. While at prep school and college, Frank learned his math, football, and lacrosse; and upon this foundation has made an excellent scholastic and athletic reputation. Perseverance, hard work, and the will to win have characterized his every undertaking and consequently he has achieved All American honors in lacrosse. Frank ' s amiable manner, cheerful disposition and optimistic views are the bright spots in a routine life. Ever ready to help a classmate, his extra instruc- tion would put many a prof to shame. Good work, Frank and these same qualities will carry you far in your subsequent Naval career. A H. HENRY BRESS Norfolk, Virginia Lank was a typical happy-go-lucky Southern gentleman and true lover of wine, women, and song. Almost always the last person to get to formations on time (next to his roommate), he stepped out of character when it came to boxing or arguing. Fortunately, he put the arguing to good use in the Quarterdeck Society. He was secretary of that organization and the person who really put it in the limelight. Henry proved his worth when he coached the plebe debating team and brought victory to the first battalion. It will be " V for Victory " all the way when Hank goes out to " fight the fleet. " Hi CLIFFORD LEON BROWN Portsmouth, Virginia Lis mother called him " CHfford " ; his femmes called him " Cliff, " but his classmates knew him as just plain " little man. " But whether we called him " short-stride " or " Cliff " there was always a smile welcoming us which was an integral part of this little southern gentleman from Virginia. ClifT came to Uncle Sam ' s institution with aspirations for stars, but soon gave them up for bunk drills and dragging. This, with his activities on Reef Points and an occasional trip to the wresthng mat filled his afternoons. Anytime of day usually found him yelling " Who swiped my CosmoT ' or " Hey Mister, Where ' s Norfolk Navy Yard. " In " Shorty, " femmes, boys and the fleet acquire one of the best of all sandblowers. y(.-{J:i L u 7iy c) «OGn ] MELVIN WILBUR BROWN ,j Baltimore, Maryland W hat big city is Baltimore near, Mister? " Yep, Mel is a Mary- lander and proud of it, even though he attributes too much importance to a sub- urb. A savoir, Mel traded Johns Hopkins for Navy where he felt his competitive abiHties would never languish. A true " Field and Stream " sportsman, he made frequent mention of the tall ones that got away on that Minnesota hunting trip. The ladies were the one big worry for Mel, a confirmed " snake, " to whom the weeks were breaks between weekends. His sense of humor and his friendliness will make him a good shipmate. His ability and intelligence will make him a good officer. JOSEPH MASON CAMPBELL . Richmond, Virginia jTx salty, solid southerner from Richmond, Virginia — that ' s our Joe. Unruly hair, a twinkle in his eye, a glib tongue, and perfect dancing made him a success with the fair sex. Joe came to us from the fleet via the Norfolk Naval Academy Preparatory School to establish himself as one of the most popular members of our class. Pie be year found him on the cross country course and later in the boxing ring. Youngster year he was still in the squared circle, and was also representing his company. Most every weekend some sweet young thing had him in tow, otherwise he was out sailing, playing tennis, or reading some good book. ARTHUR McDowell carter, jr. -.-J Annapolis, Maryland rSud was born two thousand years too late. The ancient Greeks would have been proud to rub shoulders with this blond haired Adonis, for Bud is a staunch believer in physical perfection. More than one O.O.W., in making reveille inspection, interrupted his morning calisthenics. A lover of athletics, he played football, basketball, and lacrosse. If there were more seasons of the year, you can bet he would have been out for more sports. His ambition to be an en- gineer. Bud thrived on the more technical academics. With such a balance between physical and mental perfection, what can keep this Crabtown lad from the top? THOMAS LESLIE CARTER, JR. r-y Gatesville, North Carolina 1 om, if not the original and foremost " southern gentleman, " is the undisputed runner-up. His charm and smile have won him a host of friends — all he meets are conquered. That half-inch gold stripe for his sleeve has consumed much of Tom ' s attention, but he still took part in extra-curricular activities by managing the Fencing Team and by holding down first base of the Regimental champion softball team. Raising havoc among the ranks of the fairer sex has been Tom ' s chief hobby, and a rather dehghtful assortment they were, but he has now been narrowed down to one. As a classmate, he was one of the best — as a friend, Tom was " tops. " Mu TH. C Ar JAMES AVONIA COCHRAN Washington, D. C. Linbition; that is a one-word description of Jim. An Eagle Scout, a captain in his high school cadet corps, a member of the Marine Air Corps Reserve, and a student at Randies Prep — these were Jim ' s stepping stones toward his lifelong ambition — to become a Naval officer. Jim, however, believed in mixing the sweet with the bitter — proven by his dragging record and the fact that he spent hour upon hour playing tennis. The Marine Air Corps Reserve must have left a little of that unexplainable something in Jim ' s blood, and the future will undoubtedly find Jim in the air. Happy landings, Jim! CECIL BRADFORD COLLINS, JR. c |-j White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia iJrad " suffered quite a drop when he left Greenbriar as cadet major to become a plebe. He will answer to " C.B., " Brad, or " Major " in the cheer- ful manner which won him so many friends. Not unlike the average American, he likes sports, sweet swing, and above all else the fairer sex. He is a good mixer and a connoisseur of beauty, in spite of a slight bashfulness which overcomes him at times. However, the Major ' s chief claim to fame was a military air and bearing that denotes ability to command. Ever since plebe summer, Brad has proven that he can carry plenty of gold on his sleeve, and be every inch an officer in any emergency. It BARTHOLOMEW JOSEPH CONNOLLY, III Washington, D. C. It ' s hard to tell all about Bart. His home port, Washington, lost a walking Chamber of Commerce. The broadest grin in the class won him innumer- able friends, while somber dark eyes had their moments of seriousness. Romantic affairs were light, and experience a good teacher. A stubborn Irish soul, caring not to win but play, made nothing a failure. His nothings include a natural ability at track, basketball, and, oddly enough, excellent poetry. The wings he ' ll someday wear will characterize his inner spirit. He has that carefree, fearless, and never say die will that is an inherent requirement for all good flying men. Me HENRY JONATHAN HOSMER COOKE Washington, D. C. Leet a man with a wealth of naval experience behind him. Although his sea duty consisted of a summer cruise on the U.S.S. Hamilton as a reservist, it enabled him to win his appointment. Just name any ship in the fleet, and Hank can tell you anything you want to know about it. Although not a particularly savvy individual in the field of academics, he stood in the upper half of the class without any difficulty. Last winter Henry Ortland counted heavily on Hank in the free-style events. Hank hopes that some day, after a tour of duty on the big ships, he can come back to his first love — the U.S.S. Hamilton. i H . J. H OoWiL. J (?.5 . Co jU (u PAUL RICHARD COPELAND, JR. A Huntington, West Virginia lanky cosmopolite, Jim grew up in Idaho, Florida, New York, West Virginia, and points west. Though he is occasionally serious, his lighter moments prevail, and perhaps his soberness is a result of chance bouts with old man academics. Already a gentleman and having decided to become an officer, he put aside all else until that goal was attained. He adapts himself well to any situation, and, though usually smiling, he can be the gloomiest man in the academy. Jim beheves in himself and has confidence in his ability. Open frankness, wiUing cooperation, and easy disposition made him a good roommate, and will make him an ideal shipmate. EDWARD JOSEPH CUMMINGS, JR. yp Washington, D. C. r olio wing in the footsteps of his father, who saw service in the Navy Medical Corps, Eddie chose the Navy as a career. He spent his first year at Georgetown University, but he finally realized his lifelong ambition and entered the Naval Academy. Being rather quiet and reserved you could always find him on the football field or on the track when these sports were in season — never the spectacular or prominent figure — but the hard, conscientious worker that he is in all his undertakings. With that serious nature but ever pleasant " playful twinkle " in his eye, he ' ll go far in anything he sets out to accomplish. JOHN JAMES SHARMAN DANIEL •t-rj Claxton, Georgia VV ith a keen mind, accurate judgment, and a knack at concentra- tion which enabled him to use his abilities to good advantage, the Deacon has known little trouble with academics. Yet he was never one to permit lessons to crowd out all pleasures, the inevitable attraction of crew forced his interests in an athletic direction, and soon we were amazed to see Dany ' s lanky frame broaden out into smoother lines. In the evenings, his cheerful smile was always a pleasant touch to a friendly gathering of classmates, and his card tricks never ceased to astound us. Quiet, unassuming and reliable, John was above all a good friend. HOWARD ELLIS DANNER iiTL r Beaufort, South Carolina iViuh mammy calls me Junebug, so I reckon das my name. " So saying, Danner swung into a losing battle with the dago department, for, although " suh " and " honey chile " influenced too many of his classmates ' girl friends, a man who never pronounced an " r " in his life was no match for a Spanish infinitive. " The Bug " collected friends and nicknames until his casual strolls took on the aspect of a politician at a Union picnic. His athletic ability led him to sleeping and pole-vaulting as his favorite indoor and outdoor sports, respectively. He lettered in track, bridge, handball, and the Committee sessions.

He was a striper plebe summer and devoted his plebian afternoons to the plebe track team, his specialty the quarter mile. On becoming a youngster he was equally adept at running the 440 and the plebes. This ability stood him in good stead on the Flying Squadron whenever he managed to save up enough to drag. Second class year he got his hands on a star boat and after working a long time to get it in shape his reward came from those long afternoons of blue water sailing. Not a snake, his big loves are the Service, his pipes, and sailing. JOSEPH JOHN DEVLIN Catonsville, Maryland vJne of Navy ' s best hurdlers, Joe won his " N " in track in his meet against Army. Track was not his only sport as every fall afternoon found him on the football field. In the classroom, he held his own and his qualities of leadership stood him in good stead during the three years at the Naval Academy. But we will remember Joe for his never-failing good humor, his natural sense of comradeship, and his high ideals. These qualities will contribute to his continued success in the fleet for these are quahties appreciated in a brother officer. We look forward to the future when we may again be shipmates. ARTHUR TENNEY EMERSON, JR. jrj Washington, D. C. W ith the background of a Navy junior, Art knew quite a bit about the academy before he entered, but he applied himself diligently to add to that knowledge. Between academics and participation in wrestling and lacrosse, " Ausum " found himself with a full schedule. Quite the " snake, " he was always dragging, but his pet hate, aside from D.O. ' s, is a drag that stays inside the five- mile hmit. Art can be counted upon to make quite a career for himself in this man ' s Navy, and if he does half as well as his Dad, he ' ll be mighty successful. Here ' s wishing a happy cruise to a swell roommate, classmate, and friend. FREDERICK RAYMOND FEARNOW J Richmond, Virginia i- eaving behind a bevy of Virginia beauties and an empty tray of mint-julep glasses, Fred said adios to a life of leisure and boarded the streamliner as his first step toward a successful naval career. With a WiUiam and Mary back- ground he found ample time for soccer, tennis, bowling, and swimming, plus many hours of bunk drill with the newest Reader ' s Digest or Cosmo. Our boy Fred, history ' s greatest heart-breaker, seldom let a weekend pass without making some little girl ' s heart flutter. His favorite pastime was sleeping during study hour to regain his energy lost in the afternoons beating out the latest boogie-woogie tunes on the ivories. fT il M - - j2k . y CpJUucir£y xX Ul, jJuxZih HARRISON ROBERT FEHR, III T Rising Sun, Maryland he atmosphere was charged with energy by his presence, for Frenchy has been on the action list completing one task and simultaneously forg- mg into a new one with zeal undiminished. This enthusiasm for work was aided by a quick brain, that usually placed him one jump ahead of everyone else. Youngster cruise brought him face to face with a new problem— Ann. Could he continue his career or was it too long to wait? His decision was to drive ahead at full power, and the road he travels can be nothing but short, if he continues his preserit course. Since we know he will, our growing Navy has another valuable asset in the offing. Af EUGENE RUMPH FLATHMANN Charleston, South Carolina Lfter three years at Clemson College, Gene came to the academy. Charleston was very proud of her son who was destined to become one of Navy ' s best football players. Gene also took an active part in basketball and indoor as well as outdoor track. This huge fellow had a kindly word for everyone, and his congeniality was known to all. When not on the athletic field. Gene spent most of his time in his bunk. The small part of the day that was left when he was not deep in slumber was spent in the canteen or some other place where chow was available. His outstanding characteristic is sportsmanship and fair play to the other fellow. Ar GEORGE HOWARD FOSTER, JR. Washington, D. C. lu analytical view of life, big brown eyes, a knifelike wit, a facility for making up and speaking his own mind, along with a natural bend for anything strenuous either mental or physical, this characterized George. No matter what we were doing or talking about, G.H., Jr. could step in and add his share, more often than not an entirely worthwhile addition too. G.H. when between golf and squash was more or less in the non-between drinks category — but he could usually be found on the winning side of a brisk bridge game. All of which blended together to make G.H. a swell pal and a sure bet for the future. CLARENCE TEAGUE FROSCHER _ _ , Homestead, Florida W e shall always remember Frosch as the one man who possessed both ingenuousness and ingeniousness. Here was a fellow who read Cosmo and still starred. During the fall and spring he sailed the dinghies, crewed in the big boats, and skippered the yawls; the winter found him either boning sailing books or drawing plans for his own cutter — during leave he even left the moon over Miami to sail in the New London-Hampton race. We remember how he went for his bunk drills and his passion for keeping a messy B-hole, but we loved him almost as well as we did that monthly contribution of Florida oranges. 3L 2u.w r - I4JM C. LlU. ROY HOLLAND GALLEMORE F Bartow, Florida rom the land of " Sunshine, Tropical Fruit, and Beautiful Women " came a Navy Junior as proud of his Navy heritage as he was of his peninsular state. No, Roy hasn ' t yet exceeded his Dad ' s feat of bringing a submarine home under sail, but the fleet will find in him an officer full of new ideas on every subject — practical and otherwise! He was a conversationalist of rare talent and merit — one who could talk about anything, argue on either side of any issue, and supply an abundance of repartee and wit. May his shipmates on the turbulent seas ahead appreciate his companionship as we have. WILLIAM CHANDLER GODFREY r-p, Annapolis, Maryland 1 he first twenty-one years of his life spent in and around the Navy end with twice as long yet to go, it is only fitting that we christen this man " Navy Bill. " Standing in the vicinity of five eight, Bill proved that it did not take a big man to make an athlete. Among his sporting accomplishments were the winning of varsity letters in tennis, soccer, and wrestling, as well as plebe numerals in boxing. Not only was Bill a participant, but he was a topnotch writer of sports and became the Log sports editor his first class year. The Trident and Lucky Bag felt the weight of his keen interest as did several 4.0 drags. RENfi EUGENIO GONZALEZ cc Santurce, Puerto Rico Owede " seemed to like one thing best in life — his bunk. He defended his natural tiredness by saying that he needed rest. Nevertheless he found time to participate in swimming and crew during each of his three years and to drag occasionally on the side. He was a plebe swimmer but later switched to the battalion team. On the salty side, he showed himself to be a real sailor, always knowing how to catch the wind just right when he sailed. We ' re still in the dark on his love life, however, never having been able to pin him down one way or the other. He ' s easy-going, considerate, and quite a guy. Ce JOSEPH EDWARD GOULD Brunswick, Georgia celebrated in poem, the Marshes of Glynn became doubly famous when Joe first set South Georgia on its heels. At the academy he has remained in the limelight. For two years he kept us in step at parades; you guessed it — a Hell Cat. " Conga ' s " terpsichorean ability was amazing. He was always at the hops, and that curly hair and friendly smile drew the women like a magnet. He was an ideal wife. One minute he would be without a care while the next might find him studying like mad. Unselfish and understanding, his greatest gift was that of forming firm and lasting friendships. Becoming a good officer should be a natural step for him. Q.l u yjz,. ROBERT TODD GREGORY _ , Fredericksburg, Virginia VJ ndoubtedly, Bob was one of the finest fellows ever to enter the academy. His close friends admired him for his sterling character and the regiment was proud of his ability as a gymnast and cheer leader. The fact that the youngsters did not have a European cruise did not worry Bob, as he had already been across the pond while playing the clarinet in an orchestra on a passenger liner. His interest in music soon developed into a love of the classics. He was a swell sport, an understanding companion, and a gentleman. With a foundation like this, coupled with a pleasing personality, Bob ought to go far. JOHN BRADFORD GRIGGS ii -rj Elizabeth City, North Carolina W here are you from Mister? " " Er, sir Fm from North Carolina, Panama, China, and any other place you ' d like me to be from, sir. " And so with these words this Navy Junior made his informal entrance into the academy. Being too light for varsity sports, " Duke " restricted his abihties to battalion athletics where he gained a fine reputation in lacrosse and soccer. Duke is a real ladies ' man and there will be many tears shed when this old sailor puts out to sea. Jack fought hard to stay in the academy, and when a man fights as hard as he did to be a Naval officer you can ' t stop him. That ' s why we ' re pulling for you. Admiral; keep fightin ' . JOSEPH EDMUND HADLEY • Washington, D.

Born in New Orleans, " Little Joe, " all six feet of him, spent several years in Oklahoma before moving to Washington. Joe spoke fluent French, and was quiet and unassuming, expressing violent opinions only when the system got the better of him! His genial nature and his ability to get along with his shipmates will make Joe a welcome member of any wardroom in the fleet. Aft. ALVIN WILLIAM HALL, JR. Washington, D. C. fter living next door to the academy all his life, Al decided to give up the Marines and join the Navy. And so it was that he strolled in one summer day with that contagious grin spread over his face. To speak is natural, but to speak intelligently is an accomplishment. Al is this rare type of speaker; one who has a wealth of ideas to express. All words? Far from it, but his silence shows a depth of thought which gives results. You will find him in action during the week swinging the old racket or sailing up and down the blue Severn. A gentleman, a fighter, a man, here ' s how to a leader and a beloved friend. w.MJ..

But academics were scarcely his only interests. Plebe wrestling and lacrosse kept him, the " Duke " , very much in trim until an injured back forced him into less strenuous fields. Battalion sports. Movie Gang, and the Lucky Bag staff kept him busy during his later years. Phil finds gardening a most unique hobby. An exponent of the art of keeping fit, swimming and dancing ranked high in his interests. He could be found at every hop and always with a good drag, a smile, and a receding hairline. HENRY RAWLINS HAMNER yj Lynchburg, Virginia n.. R. (for Pete) was born — obviously if you just hstened to him a minute — down in " Ole Virginny. " Naturally, then, to him, yankee was a con- traction not a word. He played a mean game of tennis, and plowed away at the swimming squad all three years of his career. According to his own statement, he has had more roommates than anyone else in the regiment, seven in all, and everyone of them would swear by Pete who was a swell bridge player and true committee member. All of Pete ' s classmates, and too many of their girl friends, grew to love his infectious grin and his constant good humor— except before breakfast. WILLIAM HUGHLETT HARDCASTLE, JR. , Hertford, North Carolina Jjill was a true " Tarheel " and used to howl at the joyous reminis- cences of his sojourn with the " Wolfpack " of North Carolina State College, his first alma mater. Some of his favorite yarns were really worth telling. Classmates can vouch to that. His ambition was to earn his " Wings " in the Naval Air Service and in later life retire to a farm in his beloved Carolina. In his spare time. Bill helped in the stage productions for three years as a member of the Stage Gang, and was a member of the Log staff for three years. Bill ' s diversions were about equally divided between dragging, sailing, tennis, bridge, Cosmo, and sleep. HUGH McCORMICK HAYDEN J y Washington, D. C. irdugh hails originally from Santo Domingo. In July, 1939, he left the Naval Reserve for the U.S.N.A. The ambition to become as good an officer as his dad, together with hard work, pulled him through his academics. Dragging ran aldose second to the studies in Hugh ' s stay here; either crew, wrestling, and swimming filling in his spare time. He was also a member of the company pistol team. He derived much pleasure from old time music and good beer when he could get them. Hugh ' s ability to enjoy himself and make friends easily, plus his diligence, should see him well on the way to the top. JVf.XM- fm X?.

An athlete of no mean ability, he was a pillar of the battalion basketball team and swimming squad. Then too, the Boat Club wouldn ' t have been quite the same without him. Socially, Ben dragged occasionally, but attended all the hops. A man of exceptional will power, he could keep the fair sex at an arm ' s distance. Scholastically he did well, standing in the upper third of his class. In all Ben ' s upstanding character and determination are indications that he will be an outstanding Naval officer. JAMES LEMUEL HOLLOWAY, III y Arlington, Virginia J im has lived in many ports, but now he is proud to be an adopted F.F.V. His numerous activities are indicative of his versatility. The fall and winter afternoons were spent improving his fine wrestHng style; later, in spring, he sailed but not without a gal. His artistic, colorful writing was evident in many issues of the Log and Trident. His keen wit and ready humor sparked all of our bull sessions, and Holloway ' s classic leave stories are matchless. A credit to the Navy, a sincere friend, a scholar, a gentleman, Jim will be the Naval officer John Paul Jones hoped we all might be. FRANK WHITELY HOLLOWELL, JR. -.J Elizabeth City, North Carolina rdailing from the low lands of the Old North State, Frank ' s main ambition is to see the old days of big plantations and Southern gentlemen restored. He dibbles at sports for the fun of it, plays a Uttle bridge, and borrows all the mags on the deck. He rowed in the plebe crew and battalion crew his youngster year. Frank was an active member of the Stage Gang for three years along with the Reception Committee. He chmaxed two years of hard work by becoming as- sociate editor of Reef Points his first class year. Frank ' s ability to thrive on work places him in a position of demand for immediate use in our expanding Navy. DANIEL HUNT, JR. „ Washington, D. C. r lash— Navy ace favored for title. This could easily be a frequent headline if our Danny should select the greener pastures of Pro golf and let the Navy paddle its own canoe. Besides being a true sharpshooter with the sticks, he possessed that ever friendly manner that made him a perfect captain for the boys that putt the pills. His peachy complexion and curly hair keep the eternal snake out of the stag lines and in the midst of social lore. Our early conception of Navy Juniors quickly changed beneath though tfulness, generosity, friendliness, and sense of humor that made his three years something to be long remembered. « CO.Oi M .

Here he could be his natural self with ample opportunity to exercise a friendly courteous personality, a keen sense of humor, and his ability to make friends. He regarded all Yankees as outcasts from society and firmly believed that Virginia Beach was just this side of heaven. Duty in the Fifth Naval District will please him, for he was quite the ladies man around Norfolk. DOUGLAS HALE JENNINGS ,t,_l- Petersburg, Virginia 1 hat ' s what I say, " he would begin. A few well pointed witticisms, and, to a Northerner, the mellow tang of his Virginia accent were among the first impressions of Doug. His accomplishments lay not only in conversation, but in a fine sense of the proper amount of time to spend in " rest, " for which his bunk was well utilized. Not that Doug was exactly lethargic, because he often piled up a fair score in bowling, put in a little time at the movies, or even went so far as to go swimming now and then. Asked the question, " How often do you drag? " Bunny would reply with a quizzical look, " Once in a blue moon. " RICHARD HOWARD JOHNSTON, JR. _ J Washington, D. C. llailing from absolutely nowhere, and a Navy Junior to boot, " Howie " may definitely be classed as one of the incorrigibles. Not blessed with many savvy qualities, but never worrying too much, he managed to bulldoze his way through the academics. A running fool, but not entirely in vain, he received his " N " in Cross country and in track. His milder vices are singing in the choir, playing tennis, and dragging. That fighting heart developed putting out down the last few yards of the stretch will prove a valuable aid in the years to come. Ever carefree and living life to the fullest we are sure of his ultimate success. -r: ift e Mu uJ isC JACK BOYD JONES tt j Springfield, Missouri lley, podner. " These familiar words came to us from Missouri via Georgia Tech with worlds of friends, broken-hearted women, and various other forms of entertaining elements left behind. Neither the strict discipline nor the rough academic routine slowed Jackson down, and he stormed from room to room leaving hosts of friends laughing at his hilarious stories. He also found plenty of time for his women, reading, and golf, and his other major interest, aviation. Jackson has a smile and a personality worth a million. This, combined with such enthusiasm for aviation, should send him far in the Navy. (Jdo ojl o ? . ffii to ' vi » ' vaa) U x: A C. c 06. -Vt ARCHIE LEYTON JULIAN jrj Washington, D. C. W isdom, self control, reliability, and a plebe year ability to pray for rain, won this Washington, D. C. boy the name " Mohammed. " Being the pride and joy of the E. H. and G. Department, he naturally turned his talents toward literary accomplishment, namely the Lucky Bag. Proudly claiming Washington as his home, anyone could tell by his drawl that he was from the mountains of Tennessee. Being above all a military man, he didn ' t mind marching extra duty and actually enjoyed infantry drill. Yes, he retained that from his Army training. To an officer, gentleman, and friend, we wish success in his every undertaking. ROBERT GRAYSON KACKLEY , Washington, D. C. xSob, at heart a Georgian, always set his goal sky high and then did his utmost to attain it. His tenacity exhibited itself in his studies and tennis. Al- though he never quite made the varsity tennis squad, he played on his battalion teams for two years. Squash, canoeing, and hiking found their places high on his repertoire of activities. The business staffs of both the Log and Trident and the Reception Committee received able assistance from him. Bob never found that O.A.O., but he was always hopeful. His determined spirit, kindheartedness, and quiet frankness will carry him far. OWEN FLOYD KELLER, JR. Bedford, Virginia 1 he first we knew of Sleepy plebe year was when this mild-mannered Southerner became a company representative and helped us pick a class crest. We were soon to learn his mannerisms by his accomplished wonders. A star man both in academics and sports, being captain of the fencing team his last year and editor of the Lucky Bag were only a few of his most serious efforts. In addition he took an active interest in ketch trips, the Log, the Radio Club, photography, tennis and dragging, the latter whenever possible. Always ready to help any of his many friends, Sleepy will long be remembered for the antithesis of his name. ALGERNON HUBBARD KERR, JR. _ Kerr, North Carolina llub entered the Naval Academy with two years in college and over a year in the fleet behind him. His mature outlook on life plus his rapid accumula- tion of grey hairs quickly earned him the respectful title of " Daddy. " That six foot build and smooth Southern line was most effective on those dragging week- ends; but academically, alas, he wouldn ' t have starred whether he read Cosmo or not. Youngster year he became a charter member of the 10 20 club. His sea- manship and natural leadership ability should contribute to his success in the fleet — that is, if he ' s allowed to take his seeing-eye dog with him. - - X - - l A - 4 u_ iL- J i $ ' f iUu GEORGE WILLIAM KLAUER -p, Charleston, West Virginia r rom a financial angle, " Snuffy " has chosen the wrong profession. With his ability to pick the horses, he should be following the races instead of following the sea. We will all remember Snuffy as the little man with a powerful build, monkey-like feet and legs which are not unlike two huge tree trunks. His talents were by no means confined to academics, as he has been outstanding on both lacrosse and football fields. No coach could ask for a better man in the lacrosse cage or a guard with more fighting spirit. George, we wish you the best of luck and the success you rightfully deserve throughout your career in the Navy. WILLIAM MARSHALL KNAPP (ly Washington, D. C. I ' m a Navy Junior and proud of it! " How often have those words proclaimed Bill ' s faith in his kind. Perhaps that same energy with which he defends his side of any argument accounts for his flair for athletics. Plebe year, soccer, swimming and Glee Club left him little spare time. Came youngster year, and Bill decided that his real love was swimming. His spot on the varsity squad will be a hard one to fill. " Life with Willy " had its surprises. It took a real man to indulge in symphony and cake before breakfast, but such was Bill ' s capacity for the unusual. We feel confident that a second capacity, for work, will carry him far. REGINALD CLAIR LAMB, JR. y Annapolis, Maryland IN ineteen years of life in Annapolis finally convinced Reggie that the Naval Academy was the only place to start his career. Versatility should be his middle name. Besides participating in gym, soccer, track and being active in Log photographic work and the French Club, Reggie managed to eke out a pretty fair name for himself as a wrestler on the varsity. Between workouts, he could usually be found dragging — a different girl every time. Whenever help was needed at the Naval Academy, the call was, " Where ' s Reggie? " When he gets out in the fleet, the same demand may well continue to exist. RICHARD DEMING LAZENBY Annapolis, Maryland Wld Crabtown did well when she contributed Dick to the Naval Academy. All around, which almost coincides with his nickname " All American, " effectively describes him, for he covered the academic and athletic fields equally well. Although fretting about academics, he never has had any trouble in " getting by. " He has shown his versatility in sports by winning his " N " in lacrosse and soccer and his numerals in swimming. His spare time, which was almost nil, was spent in writing letters to the O.A.O., acting as a member of the Ring Committee, and sailing. To a swell fellow, we say, " Best of Luck, Dick. " . . : f - )$ C SSijCKyS JX GUY CHAMBERLIN LEAVITT A Portsmouth, Virginia Ithough Guy was appointed as a candidate " At large, " he claimed California as his native state. In his wide travels, Guy cultivated excellent tastes in swing music and good-looking drags. His major interests in life were sailing and bridge. Almost every afternoon during the fall and spring he could be found down at the dinghy float putting to sea in one of the fourteen footers. In the winter he was either playing bridge or indulging in that most popular of winter sports — bunk drill. A staunch friend and a good companion, ' Guy will make an excellent shipmate. T ixo FREDERICK HENRY LEMLEY ry-, Washington, D. C. 1 rim ankles beating out a steady flutter kick — by this have we known him. Out of the pool, if it be the way of a man with a maid, Fred also held master ' s papers. Was he a worker? With the matchless coordination that only a swimmer possesses, he splashed away merrily as a member of our swimming team. Not lacking in business ability, he waded, and soon found himself neck deep in the affairs of the Masqueraders. Still full of energy, Fred, from youngster year, was a member of the Press Det ail. And yet, on weekends, with the femmes around, he toiled hardest and best of all. Work? — We know he docs and we know he will. M. WILEY THEODORE MACKIE Gastonia, North Carolina Lack entered the academy as an ultra conservative son of North Carolina, but a great transformation soon took place and it soon was difficult to find him not smilingly contemplating some mischievous scheme. Wiley was not exactly a snake but was usually dragging blind for his roommates. His only vice was a mania for hot swing records, of which he had quite a collection. His every afternoon was spent on the track. Though not spectacular, his spirit and determina- tion made the miles go faster. As his stars proclaimed, academics were no problem. A real gentleman, we were proud to have Mack ' s companionship along the sea of life. D. yUc , -p i A DAVID BALFOUR MAHER Washington, D. C. ave Maher who came from at large was destined to become a Naval officer due to kin. From the time he entered until now he has been very enthusiastic about sports as well as studies. His first love was golf which can easily be understood by the " N " he sports around. Next in line come his courtships, and of course last of all studies. Trees are his favorite variety of pleasure, but all around he stands with the best of them. So good luck Dave, and may we all be shipmates with you in the years to come. . . ; 2i- ¥7 J iv.rwLOL.v V • he (Vw ' +X M. AUDLEY HILL McCAIN McCoRMicK, South Carolina Lac came to Annapolis, after three years at The Citadel, and being a true and ardent representative of the South, nothing can describe his sentiments better than " a little bit South of North Carolina that ' s where I long to be. " His tireless energy and excellent photographic ability have been an asset of real value to the Lucky Bag, and his snow-white hair darting about behind a camera will be remembered long after he will have graduated. Every afternoon dur- ing the fall sports season Mac could be found on the football field, doing everything from running errands to refereeing, for as football manager he had plenty of work. THOMAS ROBERT McCANTS S Orangeburg, South Carolina quare shouldered, determined, and with high ideals, Tommy came to us from the Citadel. He forsook his first love — football — and concentrated on boxing. In the ring he was a hard-hitting, lightning-fast scrapper. In the spring, Tommy ' s fancy took not the usual turn for there was Betty at home and ever in his thoughts. Academically Tom did exceptionally well, and not a few of his class- mates envied his abilities. He has left his mark indehbly upon the lives of many of us, and we value his friendship highly. As Tom leaves now on his way to the top in the fleet, we say, " The best of everything, always, Shipmate. " WILLIAM MARVIN McCULLEY, JR. j Salisbury, North Carolina W hen ' 43 came to the academy that hot summer of ' 39, there was heard around the Fourth Battalion one of the purest southern drawls that had ever come from south of Mason-Dixon. It belonged to Mac, Bill, Tim, or less respectively, " Jelly Bean, " as he was variously called. Jelly Bean showed his stuflf immediately by winning an " N " in golf during youngster year. An additional three years on the Reception Committee, a year of plebe crew and three years of battalion football completed his record. For hobbies, he was well content with candid photography and horseback riding, although he will never forget the day the horse ran over him. ROBERT GOODING McMASTER BWiNNSBORO, South Carolina ob came to us from Clemson where his diligence there, as well as here, has netted him nothing but success. He came with a purpose, and never has he lost sight of it. Bob ' s pet diversion was the pursuit of the pugihstic art, and we can all recall his frequent " shiners " garnered from some worthy opponent. Bending his ability towards coaching he brought the battalion plebes through with flying colors. Among the sleepiest people we have known, Bob ' s love of bunk drill closely approximated a geometric progression. A well liked easy going fellow with always a good word for everyone — such was Bob. ■ cQ sa 4 jjj , WILFRED JAMES McNEIL, JR. -. _ Washington, D. C. llere was a busy little man. Even when there was nothing to do Mac could usually find something to do to keep him occupied. The shortest man in his class included on his yearly calendar of important activities the Boat Club and the Rifle team. Out of their season he managed to get in quite a bit of recrea- tional sailing, as well as spending some time adding to his classical record collection. Mac was a firm believer in efficiency, and this was always exemplified in his mania for order and neatness. This desirable characteristic of orderliness will prove a valuable aid in his future work. Be ROBERT OWEN MINK Chevy Chase, Maryland )ob ' s day started with a survey of the sport page. During the day he made a detailed study of each item, and he finally closed the day with a resume before throwing away the tattered remains. Little wonder that he was an authority on all sports. Track and cross country were his athletic accomplishments. Bob was convinced that five years is enough to tote a rifle, since he carried one for two years before he entered the academy. Life has an easy charm for Bob as he can pass off ' its petty annoyances with a turn of the hand, but this charm would be lost should the sport page disappear. ROBERT ANDREW MONROE, JR. -p. Laurinburg, North Carolina iJob, before coming to the Naval Academy, was a dyed-in-the-wool rebel from the deep, deep South of North Carolina. But, since coming up to this cold, cold state of Maryland, great changes have made their marks upon him. Why, do you know, he has even come to doubt that the South really won THE war? And, of course, to even consider that a moot question is sure nuf sacrilege down Laurinburg way. But, being a true southerner, and a gentleman, it was sheer fruit (even though downright hard work at times) for Bob to assume the role of an officer in Uncle Sam ' s Navy. While here he was lacrosse-man, battalion football player, and dinghy sailor in his more athletic moments. ROBERT RUSSELL MOONEY, JR. „ Fremont, Virginia r5ob arrived from Kentucky ' s Berea College with a fine record in scholarship, a large store of common sense, and a language as rich as the South- west Virginia hills from which it sprang. Even as an unassuming plebe, he was to be recognized as one of those rare fourth class who was in the right spot at the right time, and who through honest effort fulfilled the difficult role of a Naval Academy freshman. His unstinting cooperation and unswerving attention to daily matters of duty have been his consistent hallmark. " Rod ' s " steadiness and straightforward methods have marked him, and give his shipmates assurance of solid dependabihty. l?a.Jk- 0. { Jl . cm Z rC IJ ' yr W V tif ' U- c zj r y c - . yUu ltn HOWARD SHACKLEFORD MOORE ■ Washington, D.

Going in for languages in a big way, he ended up as president of the French Club and, not being satisfied with one language, originated the Spanish study group to add another. He was always willing to talk about anything in either French or English, and as long as the gift of gab counts for anything. Shack will get along. Capable of almost anything if given the chance, Shack will undoubtedly go far in this man ' s Navy. . -n WILLIAM CABELL MOORE Richmond, Virginia i abell brought a definitely smooth, strong and well poised person- ality to the academy which has rated him high with his classmates and friends. A leader in the classroom and in the " Hall, " he has managed to hold that superiority on the golf course, being one of the mainstays of the varsity golf team. The Recep- tion Committee, battalion basketball, and the Glee Club have also known Cy ' s long, lanky presence. Along with his intense and colorfully expressed chagrin at lack of mail from " the one " Cy will be remembered most for his quiet confidence and abihty always to do the right thing. ARTHUR WILLIAM NEWLON yj Charleston, West Virginia iJill was a track fiend, he loved it and lived for it. His specialty was the broad jump, in which he set a new Naval Academy track record in the 1941 meet against Army. He also ran the high and low hurdles, and occasionally entered the mile relay. As captain this year he was one of the mainstays of the squad. " Newt " dragged rarely, but when he did, you could count on her being a queen. His other interests, besides track and the weaker sex, included swimming, being a star man, and just plain taking life easy, which are enough to keep anyone busy. WALTER PURNELL NOCK, JR. -r, Salisbury, Maryland r rom the Eastern Shore, where the sun is always shining, came Walt. Having previously attended V.P.I., he came to the academy intent on a Naval career. Walt managed the football team two years, playing one himself, and was also an active member of the Boat Club. During the winter months he bowled, slept, and dragged enough to keep him in debt most of the time. Walt was dis- couraged to see the Matapeake ferry leave its slip every day, but he finally became reconciled and has become a swell wife and friend. His determination and desire to learn carried him through the darkest days here at the academy just as they will in the future. Ill e .(9 iu j jj cjt. J CLEMENT EDWARD O ' BRIEN y Wheeling, West Virginia It was a great day for the Irish — especially Obie ' s clan — when Annap- olis opened its arms to Wheeling ' s native son. The " judge " soon proved himself proficient with pistol and rifle, finding a spot on both teams. Obie ' s bellicose nature found its outlet with the pin pushers and in regular workouts in the gym. Study proved an unnecessary evil, leaving " Brains " ample time for the Newman Club and Reception Committee. The future will probably find him simultaneously realizing his three ambitions: catching up on lost sleep, piloting a Navy plane, and walking the floor with both arms full of navy juniors. WILLIAM Mcknight pardee -pj Atlanta, Georgia 1 ossessed with a slow, easy drawl, of which the strongest words were " dag nab it, " Prep left Georgia Tech, where he was top man in the freshman class, to become a star man here. Combining brawn with brains, he earned his place on the varsity wrestling, plebe cross country, battalion tennis, pistol, Softball, and track teams. On the social side, he blind dragged just often enough to keep from being a " red mike. " Besides liking infantry drills best of all. Prep was extremely regulation, for he braced up plebe year and neglected to relax upon becoming an upperclassman — just didn ' t get the word. CHARLES ARTHUR PENDLETON, JR. Falls Church, Virginia Otudies were a snap — weekends were fun — but hair tonic was futile. Although our sparse-haired snake rarely missed an opportunity to drag, he never permitted the lighter side of life to interfere with his determination to make the most of his stay at the Naval Academy. Chuck entered into each phase of his activities with gusto, and, as we expected, he did well in his every effort. His calm, imperturbable nature was a much needed steadying influence on his roommates; his agreeable disposition made him a welcome partner in any undertaking. We envy those in the fleet who will be his future shipmates. LEWIS EDWARD PENNELL tty Columbia, South Carolina l_(ewie " is a southerner of the old school who spent a good part of his life at the academy correcting the widespread misconception that Charleston is the capital of South Carolina. His inherent southern hospitality found an outlet in the Reception Committee over the weekends. Week day afternoons were not complete without their round of bridge or game of handball, but the varied activities of the Boat Club could make him forget either. Evenings found him occupied with the Log or the Stamp Club. In spite of his extra-curricular activities and a propensity for Amazing Stories he still found time to star. Ciow M ?■ M O l yyi y - Ai ALFRED ANTHONY PEREZ-GUERRA Ponce, Puerto Rico l1 was our young militarist who believed fully in enforcing regula- tions. He was such a Spanish savoir that he was nominated vice-president of the Spanish Club his second class year. His academy career found him also a member of the Reception Committee, Boat and Newman Clubs, and guide of our " Drill Platoon. " He came to us a member of the National Society of Pershing Rifles. Any time anyone wanted the straight word about Puerto Rico, Al was the authority. He was both a taxidermist and an entomologist back home, but the academy was hardly the place to continue these hobbies. I ' RICHARD WRIGHT PHIPPS Tampa, Florida L ' m glad our other wife was not from California ' cause God knows the arguments over Florida were loud enough as it was. Although Dick thought Florida was a swell place, he always liked the academy better. Dick always did pretty well toward beating the system. His highest ambition was to honor his name and bathrobe with a Black " N, " but that ambition was never quite realized. He never claimed to be a great athlete, but that did not leave him out altogether as he was a fine photographer and a top notch sailor, not to mention his other abili- ties in the liquid line. For all that, a good wife. JAMES EDWARD PICKENS, JR. rj-, CUTHBERT, GeORGIA 1 he fleet gave Jim a love for the sea that did not diminish at the academy. Usually his afternoons were spent on the ketches, or in off-season, reading. Invariably, his weekends were utilized for either dragging or ketch trips, sometimes both. All of his time was not used by the Boat Club, of which he was treasurer during youngster year, since Reef Points and his company pistol team found him an able executive and cooperative teammate. Jim is the type who does his part and then the parts of several others. He has those qualities of leadership, loyalty, and love of the Service that make an invaluable officer. .g ei As - U J . i .cl ' -t XL) GEORGE FOSTER PIERCE -Pj Sparta, Georgia Jjluebeard Pierce took his keenest delight in taking the wind out of competitors ' sails in our weekly yacht races. He spent all plebe and youngster years sailing dinghies or just anything in a pinch. When he didn ' t have to wade through at least two upper classes to get a boat, his attention was centered on bigger game (he liked to take off in the Freedom weekends). Boxing and politics fill in the gaps left by math and sailing. He ' d argue over anything and on either side. Then, too, if you disliked his reasoning, there was always the ring as a last resort.

The glee club didn ' t hold on to this man with melody; he abandoned singing, except to his roommates, took up battalion football and man- aged a Navy baseball squad. But the hop committee was his element; his desire for finer and oftener hops was the spark of that worthy crew. Wally ' s conception of tripping the light fantastic was less light and more fantasy. And he ' s savvy too — that ' s what those stars were for. Cc JACK PALMER Q.UALEY Baltimore, Maryland coming from one of Baltimore ' s famed high schools better known as " Poly, " Jack whizzed through plebe year in high gear as well as each succeeding year. Very well adapted to the art of studying and to the military life, he also likes good recreation, especially reading books . . . from law to the latest gory murder stories. Few girls hereabouts know of his congenial smile and his pleasing manners . . . not that he is a " red mike, " but cause for " many a yar " he ' s had an O.A.O. With the familiar box of chow always on hand, he has had more than many a friend. For a fellow to confide in or to trust, in the fleet or wherever he may be, you ' ll never find one better than Jack. SPOTTISWOODE WELLFORD RANDOLPH, JR. J-, Charlottesville, Virginia Otraight from the Old Dominion Bim brought definite ideas of the " Ole South, " politics, wine, and women, and he would argue vociferously on any of them. His remarkable philosophy of physical exertion was to have potential strength for what might come, but for the honor of the Third Battalion, Randy rowed his heart out, and not satisfied with this, was a speedy member of the Battalion swimming team as well. He was a steady uphill worker and the way he carried his share made us say " Well Done. " With his love for the sea, and for a certain Naval oflficer ' s daughter, Bim will be the center of a happy Navy family. A JAMES MUNCASTER REAVES Martinsburg, West Virginia mountaineer from West Virgina, " Jeeves " came to the Naval Academy after an all too delightful year of college. Consequently, things like reveille and formations didn ' t make too big a hit with him. However, he remained his easy going self all through plebe year and youngster cruise. Wrestling was Jim ' s favorite sport. He took it up youngster year and made the varsity squad. In the summer he played tennis for the battalion team. Other things interested him, but nothing worried him much unless it was " pulling sat and staying sat. " Then, as always, his luck and determination got him by the toughest trials. ■ . — ■ 7 p : ■. ..5ti ' i;-:.i.

Liberty after Glee Club or Choir trips lured him into those direc- tions for two years. While the Academic Department seemed to be hot on his trail, Barney, like the well-known rabbit was always a jump ahead. The Rebel spends his free time sailing, at the crew house, occasionally dragging, and often helping along troubled plebes; but his many friends say his favorite pastime is combining bunk drill with telling tall stories. A DEITZ ANDERSON RUDISILL Lenoir, North Carolina product of the North Carolina mountains, Rudy has clung steadfast to a firm conviction in his principles, and through an assumed insouciant attitude has viewed the Navy ' s system with a slightly cynical eye. Plebe year he devoted his spare moments to the Log, but later to the Sailing Team and the Lucky Bag. Always anxious for either an afternoon of wrestling or a friendly argument on any subject you might choose, Deitz has weathered the cyclonic winds of academic fury to become a connoisseur of beautiful women with an appreciative eye for the finer things of this life, and a warm friendly character that we have all enjoyed knowing. Le MERRILL HOMER SAPPINGTON Barnesville, Georgia weaving a land of peaches and deep Southern drawls to enter a new world of staunch ships and blue waters was a trivial step for " Sappy. " He easily adjusted himself to his new environment, for during plebe year his rifle shooting led the team to a National Intercollegiate Small Bore title. Always a keen com- petitor he won the silver medal in the class of ' 43 match for general excellence in small arms. Fast development into one of Navy ' s best riflemen made him the natural choice for captain first class year. Sappy ' s infectious grin, jovial nature, and natural abihty will always speak for themselves. Da DAVID AUSTIN SHONERD Mclean, Virginia ' ave Shonerd has naval tradition behind him, his father and two older brothers having preceded him to the fleet. No one having known him, could fail to like him. During " bull sessions, " he is the quietest of all, and when everyone else is out of breath, Dave will usually have a single pertinent remark to make. On these occasions, he has a way of presenting his information in the form of rare, dry wit, after which, he raises his eyes and smiles shyly. This is usually his only offering to the conversation and, because it is short, to the point and not un- humorous, it is remembered the longest. t O-vr Ol. Jc -nje v4 • -..m.i.

Having won a Naval Reserve appointment, Dutch continued the good work and has been in the upper part of our class. Smoke Hall was his favorite hangout. The attractions — table tennis and informals. Johnny, our class ' s number one French student, has helped guide the French Club, having been Secretary-Treasurer since youngster year. His ambition was to " row his own boat in Uncle Sam ' s Navy " ; and it looks as though it will be fulfilled. r U . i2 JAMES EUGENE SMITH MORGANTOWN, WeST VIRGINIA looming to the academy from the hills of West Virginia, Snuffy early proved his military ability by his gunnery and work on the now legendary drill platoon. Since then he has proven that he is not only military-minded, but dramatically and socially-minded as well. When he was not out rooting our athletic teams to victory, we could find him taking part in the Masqueraders ' activities. Although he didn ' t claim to be a social butterfly, his drags were in- variably queens. This habit of picking out beautiful women makes us wonder if he ' ll be happy at sea. But never fear! Smitty likes the service and has the ability to enjoy himself under any condition. RICHARD PARKER SMITH .p Cave Spring, Georgia Uick was hard on roommates. His first bilged plebe year, and his second stood in imminent peril. He starred, of course. He invited the Officer of the Watch to join unauthorized gatherings in our room during evening study hour, when I was in charge of the room. I could forgi e him for e ' erything else, but he used to hide my mail, and that was too much. He supported certain activities for certain reasons; outdoor rifle to wear a letter on his bathrobe, choir for the annual trip to (and liberty in) Washington, and Glee Club for the sheer joy of annoying others. But in spite of all his faults, he ' s one of the best. THOMAS FLEMING SMITH - . Washington, D. C. JVlaybe he wasn ' t the most help in the world when a fellow felt like studying, but he could always be relied upon in the pinches. His cheerful and sunny disposition brightened the room in fair weather or foul. He was never too tired to try a new swing step, and equally ready to help a classmate out of a jam. Although the Executive department made sporadic attempts to chastise him, " Smitty, " having been raised in lawless D.C., was usually able to elude its grasp (with the inspiration of a lovely brownette) . Trying every sport, his afternoons were spent on the athletic fields. His ingenuity, perseverance, and boundless enthusiasm will help him in his engineering pursuits. Ill Vv ' Ca MORRIS ROUZER SNEAD Washington, D. C. an one of you who have known him recall a moment of dislike or unpleasantry? Sincere, jovial, and principled are mere words, but when applied to Moe they acquire a veritable depth of meaning. No matter how freely we were admitted to his acquaintance, we lost not one iota of respect for him; yet, he has always been unpretentiously " one of the fellows. " Though unheralded, he has not been at all inactive in affairs about the campus. Energetic, forthright, and possessed of an exuberance of that uncommon common sense, he will, we predict in all earnestness, be an object of emulation in the service, particularly in that obsession of his — the U.S. Marine Corps. Be RUBfiN PARAS SONGCO GUAGUA, PaMPANGA, PHILIPPINE IsLANDS )en first won his way into our hearts the day he sprang to attention and clacked his bare heels while taking his medical exam. Always military, yet never failing to smile or to stop for a friendly conversation, Sammy was everyone ' s friend. He was a star member of the battalion football, tennis, and lacrosse teams and a varsity boxer. In the evenings, he attended the Newman Club, Chess Club, and worked on Reef Points . Beneath a rollicking laughing personality, Ruben was dead serious about this fighting business, and was ready and eager to sacrifice everything for one ultimate objective. We vie in our affections for Ruben! As JAMES DOUGLAS SPENCER Camden, South Carolina Ls may be easily inferred, " Doug " is a staunch Confederate, and plebe year he spent many hours explaining why he couldn ' t learn " Marching Through Georgia. " His interest in foreign affairs and in national events is con- siderable and the extent of his knowledge is indicated by the fact that plebe year he won the Naval Order of the United States Junior Prize in Current History. On the afternoons when he manages to overcome the lure of the radiator squad he can be observed playing a better than average game of golf or tennis. J. JACK LIVESEY STOWE New Smyrna Beach, Florida L. came to Crabtown from the land of sailfish, sunshine, and beautiful women — about twenty miles south of Daytona. Even now he doesn ' t know where California is and doesn ' t particularly care. Jackie tried almost every sport in the books, but his favorite was all America ' s favorite — that great game of baseball. His southern hospitality and personality have won Jack a host of friends both within his team and in the Regiment as a whole. He has stuck to his O.A.O. of B.P.I, throughout his years at the Naval Academy and she seems to have been true to him. We all wish him the very best of everything. .1 V. IS . j MXli I Jt. -Xte - . Ill HOPE STRONG, JR. . Winter Park, Florida i-fter Hope left his beloved Florida for the academy, he found time to participate in battalion sports in the Fall and play in the snow in the Winter. When the weekends rolled around, he gave the regiment a treat by dragging one of the queens — for which he was famous. " Wolf " got a big kick out of reading his exploits in his home town paper and was ever ready to keep his wives posted on new developments in the orange grove business. Perhaps someday, after making a name for himself in the fleet, Hope will retire and own an orange grove of his own. If so, it can ' t help but be the best grove in the country. JOSEPH BOWEN SULLIVAN . Washington, D. C. x dding, by pun or subtle remark, the spark of wit to any conversa- tion, Joe nicely balanced his sometimes reserved self with an appreciative sense of humor. Easy-going in nature, he has, never-the-less, an insatiable desire to do everything he attempts with an eye to perfection. This laudable tendency was a trifle contested by the Skinny Department, but there are stumbling blocks in every man ' s life. Joe ' s abundant knowledge has worried many a plebe and, since one of his chief interests was keeping up with current events, he will make a well- informed and entertaining shipmate. JOHN RAYMOND SULLIVAN HQ Washington, D. C. Oully " came aboard from the Marine Reserves, which has proved to be a good foundation for a Naval career. He set his course and took everything as it came. Nothing ever worried him except the source of his next cigarette. Versatile, easy-going, and a skilled tinkerer, he was an excellent shipmate and will always have friends about him. When he was in the gym he was a man ' s man, but in the company of the fairer sex he was a ladies ' man. As the result of extensive studies in mathematics and electrical engineering during his three years at the academy. Sully has permanently accepted the fact that F = MA. A JOHN PARKS TAZEWELL Norfolk, Virginia sailor from way back, J. P. came to Navy Tech from Tidewater, Virginia and took over the sailing team and the Boat Club. His motto, " There ' s nothing like a good workout, " was well supported by his daily routine of rowing a few miles, taking several laps around the track and then tearing into the wrestHng team. Occasionally " Jug-Haid " took time off " from his favorite sport, serving extra duty, to serve on the Reception Committee or to drag one sweet little blonde. Although he always lost to the Executive department, his battles with the Academic departments never resulted in his swinging on the bush.

" Plebe and youngster years he played guard in battalion football and wrestled on the battalion team, but after he got a front tooth knocked out in scrimmage he stuck to varsity wrestling and started pistol shooting. Although his name is Orion, classmates call him everything from " Marmaduke " and " Blivit " to " Temp. " When plebes ask him what a Blivit is, he will always answer " a baby superman " and have them do some " push ups. " How can you better a combination of brain and brawn? JAMES ARTHUR UNDERWOOD, JR. rj Newberry, South Carolina 1 he South has sent many good men to the academy, but " Dixie " topped them all in my estimation. As the result of a tour of Annapolis with a group from his home town, he felt the compelling urge to make the Navy his career. From the day of his entrance, he made a commendable record at the academy in academics as well as in sports. He helped the track team win many victories, but also took pleasure in tennis, bowling and sailing. A fine sense of humor, pleasing disposition and abundance of knowledge were the qualities by which we recognized him. A successful future lies ahead for him in the fleet. It .a . MAURICE EDWIN WALL Spartanburg, South Carolina Lt didn ' t take " Brick " long to acquire his natural nickname. With , this monicker he got a host of new friends who were attracted by his extremely easy-going, likable manner. Anytime Brick wasn ' t dragging one of his many queens, you could find him listening to some recording or reading. But in spite of his other " educational activities, " he was a member of the Reception Committee and a mainstay on the second battalion tennis team. During plebe year he joined the French and Boat Clubs, and was active in the Quarterdeck Society. Maybe that is where he learned that smooth line he used on the women. JOHN JACOB WANNAMAKER J St. Matthews, South Carolina ohn, a gentleman of the Old South, left South Carolina to come here. He prepared himself at the Citadel and at the University of South Carolina. Although seldom seen participating in varsity athletics, he took an active part in battalion sports. During the off-season, he kept in condition by bowling, playing tennis and driving golf balls. And yet his interests were not confined to athletics, for he was a member of the Glee Club, Reception Committee and Trident Staff " and still found time to enjoy classical music and to read many books. John ' s love of constant activity will assure him of success. 1-1 - a oAaU JAMES ROSS WARD . GoLDSBORO, North Carolina ii. grand fellow — that ' s Wuzzy. A great personality and an army of friends. He took the academy in stride — all except the math department, which was a nightmare. Nevertheless, Wuzzy found ample time for his swimming, track, and tennis. But confidentially his real love is tramping through a Carolina woods on a crisp autumn afternoon with his gun and dogs. " Women are snares and illusions, " you ' d hear him say, but did you notice how he always turned up with a queen on the weekends? But being a lover, boning for exams, or trying to beat the system — it was all great sport with Wuzzy — a perfect wife. SAMUEL ELIJAH WATSON -J-, Darlington Heights, Virginia r rom the hills of Virginia, a smile on his face, always ready to lend a helping hand, came our boy Sam. From his quiet nature and modest character one would never suspect that a certain brown-eyed blonde was his chief interest. It must be admitted that the radiator squad had a conscientious member, but he still managed to take an active interest in the Boat Club. Once a Chemistry major in college, Sam was always a valuable asset in solving " skinny " probs, the only objection to rooming with him being that he invariably went to sleep during study hour, d isturbing the peace by allowing his book to fall solidly to the deck. H. RICHARD STREET WHITE, III Elizabethtown, North Carolina Laving completed over three years at Chapel Hill, and with a Phi Beta Kappa key, " Whizzer " decided to roam the waves of the ocean. Thus the Tarheels lost a brilliant student. In his spare time when not indulging in sports, such as wrestling, battalion football, track, and Softball, his favorite amusement was getting a room full of jazz loving plebes and learning new dance steps, which he never used at the hops. His long name combined with his many activities more than compensated for his short height. His keen sense of humor, frankness, and his ability to accomplish tasks should bring Whizzer success in any profession. JOHN HENRY WICKERT -. , East Falls Church, Virginia INo follower of precedent is John. He ' s an " Army Brat " but he got the word. " Wick " divided his free time between saihng and wrestling. During the winters his address was the wrestling loft, and the summers found him steering a dinghy for the sailing team. Throughout the years here, any week end that wasn ' t spent in dragging was put in as a full time member of the Spindrift crew. For three years the academic departments tried to develop his hidden talents. Their success will give the Navy a serious officer, yet a shipmate whose quick wit brings him countless friends. (5 . : . OVJ J ( c.i 9 .W: c f- 241 HALFORD WOODSON ' i-i-TT Washington, D. C. W oody " came to the Naval Academy with a good background of naval blood already flowing in his veins. Never finding any trouble with ac- ademics, he had sufficient time to help the battalion basketball and baseball teams to many a victory. In the spring he gave his all for the track team. His leisure hours were spent idly in a sailboat or on his bunk. Passing to the question of women, Hal had his troubles at first; but finally got the situation well in hand his last year, never being seen without one of his numerous gals on dragging occasions. CHARLES FREDERICK WORTHAM iyj Richmond, Virginia lie never saw a stranger. " And that expression characterizes Fred, who came up to the Naval Academy from Virginia and brought the traditions of the South to the boys from the North of the Mason-Dixson line. His contagious friendliness soon proved to everybody that it doesn ' t take an Act of Congress to make every man a gentleman. Further endowed with a fine sense of judgment and a sharp intelligence, " Pinky " erased a great deal of the mystery surrounding the academics and has set a high mark which he is likely to maintain, and which no doubt will be a constant reminder to others of his value as a friend and shipmate. FREDERICK ARCHER YATES tt- -jr J Washington, D. C. W hat ' s the uniform? Where ' s formation? What ' s the word? " That was our Freddy! But he was not really fouled up, especially about those things in which he was really interested. His generosity and thoughtfulness won him many friends and his abundant sense of humor took away a Httle of life ' s strain, helping us to be a little more philosophic about it all. Fred ' s bitter struggles with Math are legendary, but perseverance and tenacity kept " Fearless Freddy " with us. Still searching for his place in the world, we ' re sure he ' ll liven many an otherwise dreary moment in the future. ■ ' ?T 75 W - ' RICHARD GALT ZIMERMANN y Washington, D. C. JLike most Navy Juniors, Zip ' s whole fife has been the Navy. Other than staying " sat " plebe year, he spent his time giving " pep " talks to his class- mates. There is more than one man in ' 43 that has him to thank for the finishing of the course at the academy. There is only one thing that he likes better than exercise and saihng — yes, dragging. He had a very good chance of making the gym team, but the young members of the fairer sex lured him from the gymnasium. His main trouble was keeping his " File of fair women " straight and finding time to drag them all. Because there were not enough weekends, he often had to work a few in on weekdays.

We came to know him as a carefree, amiable joker with a craving for movies and sweet music. He never ex- celled in academics except when busy pulling sat, but when the pressure was on he had what it takes. As an athlete, R.S. was a gym man and swimmer at heart, but had a mean backhand stroke on the tennis court when occasion demanded. His one serious ambition is to be a Naval aviator. " That ' s the life for me, " he would tell you with an eager but serious glint in his eye. AUBYN LESTER ADKINS • Haynesville, Louisiana i . natural desire to see all the far corners of the world called Les from a cotton plantation to the Navy. A natural ability in all things academic kept him here. He was best known by those around him for his ready help, no matter how hard he himself was pressed, and his perfect patience in giving it. Combining a complete thoroughness with a quiet manner in everything he did, he was an assurance to all who worked with him. He ' ll hardly be the spark of his outfit, but he will be the steady plugger who ' ll carry the torch when the others give up. His quiet unobtrusive but efficient manner will in the long run display his ability to overcome trying situations. HOMER BRYAN ALLEN, JR. Brownwood, Texas 1 he big man with the broad grin came from middle Texas. With a second lieutenant ' s commission in the cavalry staring him in the face upon his graduation from Texas A. M., Homer decided to forsake the Army and give the sea-going end of the service a try. A swimmer and a horseman may appear to be a strange combination, but our hero was as at home in the swimming pool as he was in the saddle. A member of the varsity squad for two years, he more than contributed his share to the successes of the Navy varsity. An excellent card player and a loyal friend, Homer will make a good shipmate wherever he is stationed. Af WILLIAM BURTON ALLEN Ashland, Alabama Lfter knowing him, you cease to wonder why the home-town belles were draped in mourning when Bill left. He got his start that way back in Clay County, where his popularity extended to all maidens on both sides of the mountain. His first love, women, has never been subdivided, but athletics have not been entirely unheeded. In the fall. Butch is out barking signals for the battalion football team, and spring finds him playing Tarzan off the high board in the natatorium. Our most pleasant memories of the Naval Academy are associated with this gay, nonchalant fellow. Here ' s real officer material and a fine shipmate. QlL . iiU - ( Af JOSEPH EARL ALT Madison, Wisconsin i-fter two years at the University of Wisconsin, the Naval Academy somehow proved to be a greater attraction to Earl. He brought with him his suave personality, his love of music (from Bach to Boogie), his dancing feet, and a passion for bridge and a good argument. Not too athletically inclined, Jake found time to tear himself away from his studies, good literature and bridge to play an active roll on our company softball team and battalion tennis squad. On Sunday after- noons, provided he wasn ' t dragging or " flaked out, " he could be found in Smoke Hall making inspirational record selections for the informal dance. WILLIAM ROBERT ANDERSON -J-, Waynesboro, Tennessee r rom a pleasant, smiling face, crowned with coal black hair, and a proudly drawled, " Tennessee, suh, " Andy ' s remotest friend recognizes him. Although from that section of our country where the largest body of water is a full rain barrel, he immediately took to the briny deep and added sailing to his varied Ust of hobbies, which include bowling, the Radio Club and an already overflowing address book. An expert marksman through environment, Andy was a member of the company and varsity pistol teams. His ever lasting patience and calm, easy nature will, as in the past, carry him far on the trail to success. Ar DANTE ARMOGIDA Canton, Ohio Ln enthusiastic interest in electricity caused Dante, aUas " Nick, " to spend many an hour with the Electrical Gang at Mahan Hall. His vivid imagina- tion often produced unique ideas for utilizing electricity. However, participating with the battalion gym team was his way of developing physically. Never troubled by academics, he frequently had time for a magazine or sea novel. As a member of the Boat Club he gained practical sailing knowledge, while he consumed his spare time by making square knot belts and boosting the city of Canton. His congenial nature and pleasant disposition are in his favor for a Naval career. FRANK WILLIS AULT y-, Glencoe, Ohio r . W. Ault — Glencoe, Ohio ' s gift to the opposite sex. Between the dance floor and his frequent letters to TSCW girls and Saturday Evening Post cover girls, Frank had a good time. He delighted particularly in inviting two girls down for the weekend and letting them fight it out between themselves. The span of his athletic career covered plebe boxing and battalion football. He played two years as goalie on the battalion soccer team and still had time to manage the out- door rifle team. Famous for his quick wit and long-buried puns, Frank used his oratorical abihty in countless lengthy arguments with his wives. i a yOj y .

West Point was also beckoning to this potential 200 pound tackle, but we won the shake. The Army kept after this man — with chest so manly he was once papped for being out of uniform after the word had been passed " No jersies. " While still one of the pampered pets, he was offered a second lieutenant ' s commission in the Infantry Reserve. As long as he had his ropes to climb and facilities for a good game of bridge were offered, Pancho found perfect contentment, if not peace, at the academy. Oi RICHARD ALLEN BANKS Mayville, Ohio ' hio State lost a promising young mining engineer when Dick decided to come to the Navy, but their loss was our gain, A slight trait of Yankee stubbornness, together with his dependable character, marked him as a man who would get results in whatever he chose. Although preferring to visit the gymnasium every afternoon, he could easily be persuaded to play a game of ball or a set of tennis. Other sports that he liked were wrestling and swimming. His hobbies included reading, fishing, and firing small arms. Dick is bound to have a successful career and will be a welcome shipmate. Oi WILLIAM ROSS BANKS Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Oklahoma being a trifle small for a man of Bill ' s caliber, he came to the Naval Academy at the tender age of sixteen. Here he has whiled away three years with better success than most. Along with wrestling and lacrosse, Bill has found time for the Boat Club, Photographic Club, and Movie Gang, with academics as a sideline. This versatile sandblower with his flair for photography, cowboy boots, and six-shooters will be in his natural element when he gets into one of Uncle Sam ' s pig-boats. There ' ll be no stopping the limitless self-confidence and natural ingenuity of a square-rigged bronc buster like Bill. ALCUS EARL BARRETT „ Flat River, Missouri r lat River, Missouri, produced " Punchy " along with his many talents. As academics held little interest for him, he devoted his spare time to more active accomplishments. His small stature did not hinder him in athletics. He took part in varsity boxing and baseball as well as battalion softball and basketball. He professed a disinterestedness in women but dragged occasionally and seemed to get along well each time. Very able at informal discussion and argument, as well as possessing a bit of humor developed in the Ozarks, " Barry " is at home in any company under any conditions. j . jii.ti . s.

Underneath, he was still the Hoosier he had been all of his life. Ted was not at all baffled by the en- vironment and regimentation at the academy. He seemed to take things in his stride, even if he did have to stretch occasionally. Any afternoon plebe year, Ted could be found on the ketch Alligator, cleaning up for a weekend cruise. Youngster year found him doing Log work in his spare time. Ted ' s favorite weekend diversion was dragging or an occasional movie. Ti ROBERT HARMON BEAVER Centralia, Illinois hough he was nicknamed Bobby before he hailed from the oil center of Illinois he became better known to us as " Bevo, " this being a manly in- stitution. An oil baron by trade, he had the knack of readily making friends and was never lacking in good humor as shown by his claim to have the most beautiful legs in Centralia (no proof). Aside from appendages " Bevo " was well rounded. Aside from being an excellent student he was a company class Representative, played battalion football and basketball but always found time for other activities. Favorite hobby? Women and hunting tied for first. Need any more be said? Be ROBERT ADAMS BELDEN Cincinnati, Ohio )ob, often referred to as the " Jeep, " was in respect to his activities just what the name implies. He starred in academics and that means som e con- scientious work. It wasn ' t had by sacrificing his spare time, as he made some beauti- ful pictures while on the Log Photographic Staff. Not only that, but the Chess Club, Boat Club, and the company pistol team were all well acquainted with his activities. Then too, there were many evenings that he came back to the room groaning over the sore spots he had received in the wrestling loft. Here is the perfect example of a star man — in academics, in activities, and in friendship. RICHARD WHEELER BELT, JR. -i-rj CaRROLLTON, MISSOURI W ith Missouri farm life as a background, Dick came to the academy equipped with the necessary requisites — indifference to troubles, a good appetite, and ability to stay ahead of the academic departments. His sturdy legs won places for him on lacrosse and soccer teams, while his powerful arms made him regimental boxing champ. Although always ready for an argument, his only enemies were reveille and excess weight, against which he waged a constant battle. Being only slightly interested in the fairer sex, he seldom exposed himself to their graces, and his presence at a hop was a rare occasion. Se£ 249 Wi JAMES HENRY BLACK Hugo, Oklahoma ith high school days still fresh in his memory, " Spider " left his favorite haunts among the mountains and streams to master the subjects pertaining to his life-long ambition. A congenial character combined with an enthusiastic S])irit made his company sought by many of his friends. Basketball, outdoor rifle, and baseball occupied most of Jim ' s leisure time. However, he still found spare moments in which to enjoy reading a good book, playing his harmonica and trumpet, or harmonizing with the boys. But predominating over these accomplish- ments was " Hugo ' s " ability to narrate tales of the outdoors he so ardently loved. w. WALTER CONRAD BLATTMANN New Orleans, Louisiana alt entered the Naval Academy with determination to get through. Plebe year he worked steadily and quietly on his academics and at the same time did his daily dozen in gymnastics. Because of the energy he displayed while working every spare hour on the horizontal bars, parallel bars, and side horse, Walter was appointed captain of the plebe gym team. Youngster year he continued his work in the gym and earned a " GNT " as well as second place on the horizontal bar in the Eastern Intercollegiate Gymnastic League. As captain of Navy ' s Varsity Gymnastic Team for season 1941-42, Walter achieved his goal. THOMAS ARTHUR BOULTON -, Gladwin, Michigan i im is one of Michigan ' s native sons — just ask him ! His interest in medicine almost caused him to follow in his father ' s footsteps, but somehow the Navy intervened, and he found himself a member of ' 43. The least of Tim ' s worries was academics, but he always found time to play a little bridge. Baseball and golf were Tim ' s specialties, with bull sessions running a strong third. To say that Tim dragged rarely would be putting it mildly; he found more important things to do. A friendly disposition and ability to cope with any situation are traits which will make Tim a good man to have around. JOHN WEBSTER BOWMAN i,j SiKESTON, Missouri I ' m from Missouri, you gotta show me " — that was the " Senator. " . . . John began his service career at V.M.L, but two years of Army life showed him that he was Navy material. Senator launched his sports activities as a member of our plebe football and lacrosse teams. After that he was out regularly for battalion football and lacrosse, and was a member of the Reception Committee and Boat Club. Jovial, joking, and a tall tale teller, the Senator reveled in a bull session.

Whenever the sun was shining, which was quite often, he was at the golf course slicing and hooking but managing to get and keep a steady position on the golf team and still have time to sail with young ladies on the Severn. During the winter months he bowled, slept, and dragged often enough to wear himself down and then build himself up successively. Pete was discouraged by the absence of southern blue-eyed girls Hke those at " Ole Miss, " but after long hours of effort he developed himself to at least listen to a Yankee. Mi JOHN EDGAR BRAUN BiLoxi, Mississippi Lickey, the dragger, upheld the traditional chivalry of the old South with the fairer sex. Except for the time when he was occupied with a Math re-exam, hardly a weekend passed that he didn ' t have a date. He was neither a savoir nor a bucket. The first was not always the best, though, and he just got along. Varsity sports didn ' t attract him, but he was always around for battalion Softball and football. His Gulf Coast sailing experience came in handy, and for those more sophisticated moments he turned to his violin and the orchestra. He was a great play-boy, but his personality and ability to get around should carry him far. Y. d - fL U - ' J : RICHARD EDWIN BREGA Callaway, Nebraska es sir, " Dick, " " Elderberry, " " the Bird, " and " Ricardo " are all the same guy, namely, Ed Brega. It was a sad day when he had to leave Callaway (pop. 833) to come to the academy, but he soon became deeply entrenched in our organization and its activities. During the winter you could find him tinkering with a radio set or trying to build one. Reading and the Reception Committee were his year-long activities, except on springtime afternoons when he was pole- vaulting for the track team. Ed ' s simple philosophy is, " where there ' s a will, there ' s a way, " and this determination puts two strikes on whatever he undertakes. H. JOHN JOSEPH BRENNAN Detroit, Michigan Lailing from the motor city and its University of Detroit, Jack left a nicely started engineering career to make his mark in Uncle Sam ' s Navy. Academics were all " fruit " to " Jig Jig, " but an academic star held little glitter for this easy-going lad. Study hour was much more fun if spent on his bunk or answering his daily mail. While here his presence was made known all too well to Navy ' s baseball adversaries by his timely hitting and sparkling fielding. It has been a pleasant three years having Jigger as a shipmate — the fleet will find this Hkable young Irishman a good officer. r- - ' . - ' i- -et- . ■- iSL li -» i «-i ' Wt -w o a. eiS xu ?,. 3je.(r7«jL ' - a w_ GEORGE RAYMOND BRYAN, JR. Cleveland, Ohio Oandsome, yet rugged, after the Irish manner — such is a description of George Bryan. His Celtic personahty combines a sense of humor (warped from use in all kinds of weather), a lazy streak spasmodically interrupted by bursts of action, and a mixture of Welsh mysticism and stoicism which accounts for his variety of moods. He won his black " N " early youngster year, and was called " Teddy Bear " commemorating an unfortunate clash with the Executive depart- ment. He was a good friend giving much and expecting much. To life he gives much and expects ample returns. THOMAS JENNINGS BUCHANAN, JR. II-, Nacogdoches, Texas In the year 1845 the Union was admitted to Texas: " quote Mr. Buchanan. Buck brought from the South a genuine love of music, and a mastery of several musical instruments. His good academic record reflected that he was a conscientious worker, yet he could be counted on to find time to join eagerly in a good hot argument. Buck ' s athletic activities were confined principally to golf and tennis, his active interest in model airplane building and collecting recordings taking up the majority of his remaining free moments. His dragging was moderate, always keeping in the back of his mind the O.A.O. still in Texas. Forceful, and a man you can depend on, ' 43 is glad to have had him as a classmate. STEPHEN JOHN BURICH, JR. J Indianapolis, Indiana ack was born in Iowa, but soon moved to Indianapolis. With a world-famous speedway nearby, he naturally developed a keen interest in racing and thereby attained a fine appreciation of sportsmanship and the will to win. These qualities he carried to the rifle and pistol ranges to win more than a few medals and prove that he can " hold ' em and squeeze ' em. " He claimed that " Bunk drill " was his favorite sport but a look at the gold letters on his bathrobe shows a participation in several varsity athletics. Jack will carry his spirit of keen competition to the marines and his every hit should be in the " V " ring. WILLIAM JOHNSTON BURTON -pj Chattanooga, Tennessee rSill came to the Naval Academy out of the rolling hills of Tennessee where they sdll think Lookout Mountain (all 1,999 f t of it) is a mighty peak. Somewhere they must have had a tennis court a and golf course, because he learned to play a fine game of tennis and an " eighty " game of golf. Northern women, however, seemed to have attracted our lean and lanky hill billy for he barely missed a weekend dragging — entertainment or not. Of course we should not fail to mention that super-super camera of which we heard so much and saw so little but which was Bill ' s pride and joy. Bill ' s pleasing appearance and personality will always make him an outstanding figure, especially with the girls.

His ready smile and wonderful disposition gained him as many friends as any man in the regiment. Whenever anyone felt " old man trouble " creeping up, Frank was always ready to help. As good a sailor as he was a friend, Frank was a very prominent member of the Boat Club. With the lee rail under and a beauty at his side, Frank was the master of both situations. Besides sailing, he played plebe and battalion football and some volleyball. Frank ' s natural intelligence kept him from spending too much time on academics, but he did well. Consider yourself lucky if Frank is your shipmate.

Caff believes in exercising daily, as proven by his efforts in battalion football and track, but he also believes in thoroughly " prepping " for those exertions by frequent catching of those forty extra winks. Bill likes his bridge, his reading (which might include anything from Big Dime Comics to the Complete Works of Plato), and his weekend dragging, whether it be blind or otherwise. Being of a rather savvy nature. Caff has found the academics here at the academy easy to master, and he should meet the same success in the fleet. c. WARREN DAVIS CALHOUN Albert Lea, Minnesota al, the conscientious, was always ready to lend an able hand where it was needed. Not of the varsity caliber, he nevertheless took an active part in the battalion sports of track and gym, and participated in sailing as a member of the crew of the Highland Light. He was acti ' e on the Reception Committee and was a member of the choir. His never-failing good humor made him a good shipmate, and won him many friends. He had his brighter side too, always ready for a bit of fun at the right time, but was equally willing to put the old shoulder to the wheel when work had to be done. JAMES FRANCIS CALVERT J Huron, Ohio im ' s six feet two inches and broad shoulders told us at once that he was a swimmer. And right we were; it was his chief extra-curricular activity here at the academy. Next to his swimming, though, Jim loved his dragging best of all. In three years he failed to miss even a single hop — if not dragging, he was stagging, or should we say wolfing? He was the foot-loose and fancy free man in our room. Jim stood well up in his class despite his troubles with math, and if he doesn ' t go broke paying tailor bills this son of Ohio seems to be destined for a very successful career in the Navy he grew to like so well. V-f. WILLIAM PERRY CARMICHAEL -t-rj Norman, Oklahoma When Bill wasn ' t fighting the academics, he was usually putting on an excellent performance in the wrestling loft. The hook-scissors became synon- ymous with his flawless technique on the mat. In his youngster year. Bill won second place in the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Tournament, and his wrestling at the academy was climaxed by being elected captain for his final year. During the offseason, " Sinbad " couldn ' t remain inactive. He took part in sailing as a regular member of the crew of the Highland Light, and the activities of several of the bat- talion intramural teams. Bill ' s easy-going manner has won him many lifelong friends. WILLIAM RUSSELL CECIL • Kansas City, Missouri ixfter begining his academic career rather unconventionally in a Kansas City school for young ladies, Bill decided to enter the academy in an attempt to live down his shameful past. Restless by nature, he polished brass in the Boat Club, blew fuses with the Juice Gang, debated with the Quarterdeck Society, and kicked shins playing battalion soccer endeavoring to escape the radiator squad. Definitely not a red mike, his troubles with the unfair sex were a constant source of amusement to his friends. The same humorous pessimism that helped him to solve these Httle difficulties should be invaluable to Bill in his later life. PHILIP MILLS CLOW -pj Plainfield, Illinois 1 hil ' s greatest moment was his receiving a certain telegram back on Christmas Day, 1938. It concerned his appointment. Agriculture? Medicine? Engineering? Nothing doing! Navy Blue and Gold for Phil! Next to Thermody- namics, he preferred blondes, tall and dreamy-eyed. In his youngster and second- class years, Phil, also dubbed " Post Mortem " and " Philip, " developed an affinity for Miss Springfield, that might have been called passion. He liked the music of liberty call, and knew what to do on leave. As for music, he has a whim for martial airs and songs of good fellowship. Phil can ' t wait till he gets out on the deep blue sea. WILLIAM WILSON COBB , y Lexington, Missouri idow the girls did grieve when fortune, or fate, decreed that Bill should take up the sextant and steer a new course! Although everything was new to him, he easily managed to conquer his plebe year nemesis without letting the system ruffle his wavy locks. Finding more time later on, Bill participated in battalion tennis and track, was on the company pistol team, and the outdoor rifle squad. On rainy afternoons he could nearly always be found at some bridge table where his quick wit and keen sense of humor were always a source of merriment. Yes sir, Bill is one Missouri lad who never has to be shown. (7Mr . r 91-- - - He DEALE BINION COCHRAN Holly Springs, Mississippi Lere in our ranks was a true " rebel " whose conception of paradise visualized a sleepy southern town, a vivacious blonde, brunette, or redhead, a good bird dog and gun. Now it was true that we had accused him of loving nothing better than sleep, but during his sojurn here he aroused himself enough to make the plebe crew and the varsity football team to say nothing of his winning a medal as an expert rifleman. In the scholastic field he reached the happy medium, not first, not " bucket. " His motto was " a little less talk and a little more action please, " and by adhering to it he acquired a quiet efficient way. Dc WILLIAM KELLET COKER Athens, Texas ' on Juan is still looking for new lands to conquer and right along- side of him we find Kel. Everyone will agree that he definitely was not a " red mike, " for many pleasant summer afternoons found him and his drag enjoying a cozy sail on the good old Severn, or over at the informal swaying to Lt. Sima ' s music. Three years of engineering at Texas Tech proved to be no handicap to Kel, who has never had to worry about the academics. His easy-going ways show that he knows how to enjoy life and never lose any sleep, but nevertheless, he was still a pretty good utility player to have on most any athletic team. JOHN WALLACE COLLINS J Garden City, Kansas ohn Wallace Collins — an " Army Brat " who made friends easily in all the many places he visited before settling finally in Garden City, Kansas. John ' s easy-going good nature makes him an enjoyable companion anywhere, but his jokes have been influenced by the dry humor of Kansas and must be overlooked. Naturally, his early ambitions aspired after a career in the Army, but sensibly he outgrew this, and came to the academy. Here he accuses himself of being a " Bucket, " but those who know him noticed that for a self-made " Bucket, " he grasped his professional subjects with remarkable ease. CLARENCE HOMER COOK, JR. ci Montgomery, Alabama V ookie " emanates the enviable charcteristics of the gentleman for which the Deep South is famous. His resonant " Suh! " detached air, and vibrant personality have all gloriously weathered the academic routine. Typically enough, he enjoys a daily siesta which never interferes with his standing — attributed to an ability to master any situation without any noticeable change of stride. An ap- preciation of the more concrete pleasures of life, such as hunting, fishing, and es- corting beautiful brunettes coupled with a vivid imagination make him a very desirable shipmate as well as a promising officer.

A true Texan, " Coop ' s " generosity and helpfulness, especially in those math problems, coupled with an inimitable sense of humor were memories never to be forgotten. His athletic prowess was not limited to baseball, his first love, for he showed excellent ability in basketball as well. Starting out as a member of the plebe football, basketball, and baseball teams, Tex later kept the " B " Squad teams pepped up with his lively encourage- ment. " Coop " is a great friend well worth knowing and remembering. ROBERT DACEY COUSINS . Mobile, Alabama iVny plebe who has ever run into Bob Cousins knows all about the Battle of Mobile Bay and The Citadel. Alabama Bob, truly proud of his southern heritage, believes that the Dixieland Belles are tops, but he dragged Yankees 2 to i. During week days, Cuz kept busy with intramural athletics and the pistol team. As a conscientious worker and a cheerful classmate, on youngster cruise he took to the sea like an old salt. He graduated in that portion of his class which forms the backbone of the fleet, the upper middle. " Drag or stag, " Bob likes all hops; and ashore or afloat, he has the same feeling about the Navy. ALBERT WESLEY COX -wTTj Peoria, Illinois W here ' s that developer and hypo? From out of the dark-room emerged a smiling youth with a gleam in his eye, a gleam for photography and the future. That was Albert, to his classmates, just plain old Al. An ability to take his academics in stride found him active in extra-curricular work; at a hop, either stag or drag, he was characterized by, " did you see that Queen I met? " — fickle was more like it. Whether it was photography, athletics, regimental activities, or dragging, Al put his all into everything he did. With this effort, now, can you keep a good man down? To Al, the wife, we say, " keep pitching. " ROBERT MAYNES DAMPIER ,-j St. Paul, Minnesota JJob, or as most of the fellows call him, " Damp, " was not exactly of the athletic type. His activities along that line were confined to two years of battalion track and his weekly swims with the sub squad. Bob was varsity tennis manager during his plebe and youngster years, getting an " NA " for his efforts. In his spare time, he might usually have been found in Smoke Hall playing a game of billiards with someone. He liked to listen to good stories and to smoke his pipes, of which he has an interesting if excessive assortment. His practical abilities made him a competent partner in any of our laboratory drills. J. i dLf . y EDWIN TYNES DAVIS J West Point, Mississippi It was indeed a fortunate day for the Naval Academy when the pride of West Point made up his mind to join the regiment. Edwin came to us through Marion Institute and is one of their fortunate few to make the grade. Though a resident of the hill country, Ed, like the rest, felt the call of the sea. After a summer of plebe crew, however, Ed decided that athletics were out of his line. Among his attainments was the coveted post of 2P.O. during second class year. Though this service life is not all pleasure, Ed ' s natural ability to accept with a smile anything that comes his way makes him well fitted for this life. GEORGE STEBBINS DAVIS, JR. -pj Kalamazoo, Michigan JJud was the friendly conscientious young man who believed that actions speak louder than words. The Navy is his life, the Air Corps his goal. No doubt he will make a success of both. He was acquainted with the major sports and particularly with football, as he earned a plebe letter in this sport. If you took a look in one of the handball courts any afternoon, you would most probably find Bud sweating his heart out, new gloves and all. Concerning life ' s little prob- lem, there was no telling who she would be next weekend, but there was always someone, for everyone loved the quiet sincereness of Bud ' s ail-American character. JAMES HAPPER DAVIS Kansas City, Missouri Oaying " Goodbye " to the region made famous by Mark Twain, Jim abandoned the muddy waters of the Missouri for the rolling swells of the bounding blue. Previously an honor student at Kansas City ' s Junior College, the Academic department presented no serious obstacles to him. Jim was versatile at golf as well as tennis, and possessed a flair for the artistic. His daily letter to his fiancee was a vital factor in his life, and his obsession was figuring out how two can live as cheaply as one. We have enjoyed his stay with us and are looking forward to his companionship in the fleet. AUSTIN LEE DETWEILER i,-p . Zeigler, Illinois Uet " was a character of many facets. He vigorously pursued any endeavor he undertook, never doing anything by half measures. He doted on math, and his quest for all kinds of knowledge was boundless. He read everything from Astounding Stories to mathematics and Greek philosophy. Det always kept his roommate posted on his current readings by volunteering numerous quotations. Never was there a platitudinous moment when he was around. His tastes in music inclined toward opera and Deanna Durbin. He had an active interest in footbafl, tennis, and basketball, although his desire to play football failed to materialize because of an injury. JicunOs fjj, .cu t m JAMES CARMICHAEL DONALDSON, JR. J Bessemer, Alabama It isn ' t often that midshipmen are found as versatile as " Jimmy. " A Southern lad all the way through, " Jim " has maintained a high average in all his academic courses. On the gridiron and in the boxing ring, he has revealed a red-blooded temperament with overwhelming and successful force. As a room- mate and close friend, Carmichael will always be remembered for his comradeship and sterling character. Personality plus, Jim managed to find sufficient time to charm the " fairer sex " in his inimitable " Dixie " fashion. In Jim, the fleet receives the mold for a superb naval officer of the highest type. JOHN LINCOLN DONEFF t.j-, Newark, Ohio oound off Mister. " " Midshipman Bucket, fourth class. Sir! " And so by a slip of the tongue, John became " Bucket " to us, but in name only. His fine academic record hints of future progress in the Air Corps, his greatest aspira- tion. Always on the go, he was never too busy to " work that prob. " On weekends at Dahlgren he could usually be found impressing someone ' s drag with " I ' m just a clean cut kid. " His card tricks stumped us, but selling suits a la Robber ' s Row was his specialty. Bucket ' s industry, sense of humor, and willingness to lend a hand will admit only of success in the fleet. WILBUR TENNEY DOYEL -tjrj Edmond, Oklahoma W ilbur is a lad from the heart of the land of Indians and oil wells, and is still a wild Westerner. Possessing a weakness for redheads and Sima ' s music, he made the most of every opportunity to drag. However, when not on the golf course or dragging, he could usually be found on his bunk listening to the radio with the current " Book-of-the-Month " in his hand. His abihty to concentrate made the academics of the academy quite easy. " Watertight " was a welcome member of any discussion or card game, and his sense of humor and his judgment of values gave him the ability to steer a true course through the roughest of waters. a. vut4 . svy JicUffvy nIv. JOHN ANGLE DUDLEY J Oklahoma City, Oklahoma ohn, " Slim, " or " Smiling Jack " came to the academy from the land of the cowboys, Indians, and oil wells, Oklahoma. John ' s interests here were chiefly crew, photography, and sleep; academics having been little or no worry for him. His oar pulling got him a numeral plebe year and an " N " the next, while his photographic ability has been shown by the large number of pictures in the Log. Not a steady dragger, he has nevertheless kept in touch with the girls back home very well. His faculty for taking life easy, then getting things done when the time came should take John a long ways toward success. g f .rv FA .jDo kl n The ROY NELSON DUNKLIN Henderson, Texas ' Tiger " was born on the crest of a sandstorm and rocked in the cradle of the metropoHs of Texas — Henderson. After eighteen years in " God ' s Country " our hero hung up his spurs and saddle and mounted the stagecoach which was headed for Uncle Sam ' s School for Boys. Here he made a name for himself in the foreign language department — oh, what a name! His stories of the Lone Star State and of those beautiful Texas gals will never die — any deader. He held the record for " hot dogs " devoured in one sitting — fourteen. His favorite sports: eating, sleeping, and blondes will probably make the rest of his life short but sweet. A HUGH M. DURHAM Anchorage, Kentucky true gentleman of the Old South, " Bull " made an enviable record at the academy. Standing in the upper ten percent of his class, he was never too busy to aid a puzzled classmate with any difficult problem. On the athleti c field, Bull ' s physique and courage brought him many honors. An injury youngster year curtailed a very promising football career, but battalion basketball, wrestling, and Softball have proved his prowess. In the more gentle fields of activity, " Bobo " dragged not often, but certainly well! A brilliant student, a stalwart athlete, a perfect roommate — may we someday be shipmates, " Bull. " Af JAMES ASBURY DOWNEY EATON Birmingham, Alabama Lfter four years of college, Jim wanted more, so he left Birmingham and came here for three more. We ' re glad he did, because his happiness is infectious and has made things a lot cheerier for his many friends. Athletically, Jim followed the family precedent of lacrosse and, without previous experience, landed on the varsity Youngster year. During the oflT-season, he played basketball. Academics never bothered " Jad, " so his correspondence and social activity were unhampered. If one considers his conv ersational ability and good nature, and overlooks his somewhat gruesome taste in records, he was a perfect companion. LEROY EDLESON y-, Louisville, Kentucky Hintering Bancroft by the Bay only ten days after graduating from high school up in the hills of Kaintuck, " Edle " followed in the footsteps of an illustrious brother, who had graduated some years previous. His record, though not so outstanding in academics as was his brother ' s, has been highly creditable in the field of athletics. Excelling in swimming, he was elected captain of the ' 43 team. Football, also, has been one of his favorite sports, but it was greatly sub- ordinated to swimming. One who thinks always before he acts, " Lee " will always be capable of cool and deliberate action at any time and at any place. r..Jk yu Trj.Qujil CLyVn Sxt x . mMsi iH( ?JLuH ARTHUR THOMAS McBRIDE EDWARDS (4 St. Paul, Minnesota A rom the Land of the Sky Blue Water, " or, more familiarly, the frigid northland of Minnesota, Art came to Annapolis. Taking the usual course, he staged an epic battle with the math department, and majored in his particular brand of sardonic humor. McBride was our company authority on airplanes; whenever a new streamlined job flew over the section, invariably there was the sidelong glance and " in ranks " whisper, " What ' s that one. Art? " Aside from this, his electives were Esquire, yawl sailing, and a semi-occasional drag. His im- mediate ambition is the Marine Corps and, from where we sit, it appears that they are due for a mighty fine gyrene. ALFRED BENEDICT ELLIS r-f Butte, Nebraska 1 his vest-pocket edition of Charles Atlas answered to the call of " Abie. " There was a time when a soft breeze menaced the stability of this individ- ual, but the determination to be a muscle man combined with back-breaking endeavor removed him from the spindly class. Women always constituted a major problem for Abie. He will tell you that Nebraska was a little dry so he went looking for water and ended up wearing Navy ' s Blue and Gold. He got plenty of water, all right, on the sub squad! Perhaps his intimate aquatic knowledge will be of help to him in the fleet. Wf MELVIN RHEUL ETHERIDGE Birmingham, Alabama hen Mel left the land of magnolias and mint juleps, Alabama lost one of its most talented artists. His accordion and piano can give out anything from Bach to Boogie-woogie; while most of the beautiful girls on his locker door are products of his pastels. Mention academy haircuts, northern cooking, or Maryland we ather, and you get a red-hot outburst. When necessary, Mel could move fast enough, but under standard conditions of pressure and temperature, there was no danger of his over-exertion. Although he was always on the point of starring, each Saturday found him scanning the trees for a name that rarely appeared. JAMES HEDGES EVERSOLE ■j Columbus, Ohio Hiotering the academy the year of his brother ' s graduation, Jim left a promising medical career for the life of a sailor. Even though he did hail from Ohio, it didn ' t take long to get that tang of the sea air about him. Academics never bothered Salty, with the exception of several recurring tangles with the Math department. His ability to mix track, extra-duty, and basketball with his major sport of gymnastics made him an athlete as well as a math savoir, for there are several gold letters on his bathrobe which prove his ability as a gymnast. Whether he chooses the Navy or Marine Corps, there is plenty of ambition and ability to back him up. . ev-u. %• I L I i B B K ■P ' m t ■ f s M LEONARD EUGENE FIELD J Negaunee, Michigan V cry few of us had ever heard of Michigan ' s Northern Peninsula before, and even less of Negaunee, but we are all familiar with those places now. Len froze us all winter long with tales of each new snow storm back home and supplemented them with those big shipments of chow which we will always re- member. He was a man fortuitously blessed by the God of plenty. In his relations with the Academic department he had little trouble. By curbing his natural athletic desires, each year was marked by greater success. All " Navy Blue and Gold, " Len takes with him a will and a personality that point to a shining future. 2e4 ayi (L .

Bob was never known to worry about a thing and least of all about academics. Keeping tab on the sports world seemed to be his main di- version, plus an active participation in intramural sports and activities. Foss was a star man on the battalion wrestling team and lent more than moral support with his ready smile and genuine enthusiasm. BERNARD WILLIAM FRESE, JR. -pj Cincinnati, Ohio IJig, boisterous, and breezy; that was our Bernie in three easy words. He blew into the academy from Cincinnati one June day in ' 39 and has been blowing ever since. Don ' t get the wrong idea though; behind that torrent of words and song was an alert and capable mind. Proof? Just glance at his class standing. . . . His main interests were battalion swimming, Glee Club, Boat Club — and dragging. One of the academy ' s smoothest dancers, he was never known to miss a hop. . . . Bernie ' s cheerful disposition, unfailing self-confidence, and natural ability should carry him a long way up the ladder. Wi JOE LEE GAMMON Florence, Alabama henever Joe found himself sorely pressed to defend the virtues of his native Alabama, the argument always ended with his unanswerable state- ment that Wilson Dam generated enough electricity to electrocute every Damn Yankee. His exuberant enthusiasm for everything, particularly unorganized athletics and women, has been dimmed only by his belief in the virtues of un- interrupted sleep. Uncle Joe to the plebes, his easy-going and contagious good nature made us realize that academy life wasn ' t so serious after all. Certainly, come what may, life will never hold a dull moment for Joe Lee. ill JOHN HOWARD GANO . Mansfield, Ohio X1.S president of his class at Mansfield High School, Johnny began a career of endless activities. Two interests were always centered in his life, literature and beautiful girls. They both brought results, for Johnny was elected editor of the Trident magazine and possessed a locker door picture display that could com- pare favorably w ith those of the best of snakes. He capably contributed to the world of Navy sports by writing regularly for the Log and making the varsity wrestling team. However, when you get down to a real accomplishment, Johnny modestly holds his undefeated softball pitching record in highest esteem. We JOSEPH STEPHEN GARDNER Waco, Texas e knew that Texas was a large state, but until we met Joe, we didn ' t fully appreciate all of its greatness. Although the defeat of A. and M. by Texas U. nearly broke his heart, Joe took it in his stride, passing this tragedy off with a " Well, we played at Austin, " flavored with sorrow and a long Texas drawl. After two years of Chemical Engineering at Texas A. and M., the academic departments held no terrors for Joe. Quiet, unassuming — yet we know that to give Joe a job is to be sure that it will be done. This ability, coupled with his acceptance of things as they are, will take him far in the service. C W.lTa CUi. CHESTER WRIGHT GATES, JR. , -. Baldwin City, Kansas 1 ime is precious and must be used to the best advantage. " On this motto, " Pearly " based his activities. His creative ability placed him on the Ring Committee and the Lucky Bag Staff. He was occupied during the winter months by the Masqueraders. Soccer, sailing and softball were his sports; stamp collecting his pet hobby. As he excelled in academics, he had much time to follow his activities. In spite of their diversity, he was never too busy to help a classmate over the snags of academics. A red mike most of the time, he could still hold his own with the snakes when necessity demanded. ROBERT HUGH GILLOCK -pp Arkansas City, Kansas r rom the wheat lands of Kansas, Bob slipped out of the heart of the nation into the hearts of all those who have become acquainted with him at the academy. Since his plebe track days, Bob has preferred to participate in a variety of sports rather than limit his time to any one. Whether it was tennis, handball, or a workout in the gym, he was always on hand to contribute his part. Probably a more energetic letter writer never wore the Blue and Gold. Could it have been a girl back home? His amiable personality, unfailing sense of duty, and a desire to help his associates have left with all of us many pleasant memories. i. u, LAWRENCE ETTORE GIULIANI Galveston, Texas ' p targets!

Other than making an excellent record on the outdoor rifle team each year, the general from Texas participated in indoor rifle, soccer, and the Boat Club. Plebe year, he was active in the Radio Club and took a turn at managing the tennis team. Only in romantic fiction could we find other men like Larry. Congeniality, liberality, and a bit of a romantic dash were a few of the many fine traits that made up his pleasing personality. As a shipmate, or friend, Larry will always come through.

His ability to analyze any problem in a practical manner has been " gravy " for his roommates and connotes a splendid career. Drags? Not many, they all love him as a brother and friend. Some say he followed Milton CaniflT ' s Burma too closely. Maybe, but don ' t we all? ROBERT BRUCE GREENWOOD -p, Wichita Falls, Texas r rom the vastness of Texas came this addition to our happy family, His closeness to the border of Mexico must have given him an interest in foreign languages, because he pursued the study of Spanish diligently and was an active member of the Language Club. His Southern hospitality was evident in his participation in the work of the Reception Committee. In the line of sports, his chief interests centered around sailing, tennis, and handball. Academically he was very proficient. His interest in the Navy and his sound judgment made him a good friend and roommate. CHARLES FREDERICK GRESSARD, JR. Twin Lakes, Ohio r red came to the Naval Academy from his beloved Twin I,akes in Ohio. From the beginning, he showed that Navy will to win and took an active part in intramural basketball, wrestling, boxing, baseball and golf, while he con- fined his varsity aspirations to football. Reading, or more often sleeping, occupied any of Fred ' s spare time, and then there were those frequent visits of the girl back home to make many a weekend happy. Though his size often called forth a good deal of punishing kidding, his congenial smile, easy disposition plus an able self defense will win him a cherished spot in the hearts of his shipmates afloat. y a tAU-m C= . 6j a (7 (S t C f=: tZ a r -. itjl uJi Jt UftkMtd JOSEPH SEBASTIAN GRIFFIN . Detroit, Michigan ii-fter two years at the University of Detroit, Griff was lured away by the call of the sea — the record he has made here at the academy leaves his decision above reproach. Besides starring, Joe always found time for company Softball, a httle lacrosse, and a smashing but slightly erratic game of tennis. Though he satisfied temptation by a periodic fling with a steak dinner, nothing of that nature occurred in the way of wine, women, and song — it is feared that Griff will leave us as the same homespun, exemplary, unassuming, yet diverting and good natured friend in need that we have known him to be. Cc HOMER HOWARD HAISTEN, JR. Birmingham, Alabama coming from Birmingham, Homer has all the traits of a true Southerner. He spent his " prep " years at Marion Institute learning to be a good soldier and then chose the Navy for a career. While waiting for his appointment to the Naval Academy, he went to Birmingham Southern to acquire that college touch which helped him keep his class standing in two figures. Rather than wear himself out with organized athletics. Homer preferred to spent his time skating in Smoke Park and sailing in yacht races. His winning smile will always insure him good company whether it be with young ladies or fellow officers. SOLON GIBSON HALE .j -, Murray, Kentucky r ' vcryonc called him Sodie. His most distinguishing characteristics were his good humor and his activity, hence he was a cinch for cheerleader. He won his " N " in gym and was a high jumper in track. Occasionally, but not too seldom did he get a box of goodies from home which certainly did nothing to decrease his popularity. He had his share of dragging, including one beloved Miss Springfield. It is not altogether illogical to assume that if, in order to pass the eye exam, he had not stopped studying, he would have starred. His only regret was that he didn ' t go to a co-educational college before Annapolis. As HUGH DALE HAMILTON Sherman, Texas Lsk " Ham " and he ' ll tell you, " If you ' ve never been to Texas, you haven ' t lived, " and he means it. His smiling nature and broad sense of humor marked him as everyone ' s friend, making him an ideal Committeeman. Ham was always ready to help anyone with math or skinny, and if a prob could be worked, he ' d work it. Stars on his collar proved this. Strangely, he was not a team man; preferring to pass from one sport to another as the seasons passed and the mood struck him. Ham didn ' t drag very often until he got back to his beloved Texas, but then — well, just ask anybody around Sherman! J V J ; 4z A ARNT BILLY HANSEN Fargo, North Dakota snapshot of the Naval Academy and a chance appointment brought Swede to the academy from Fargo, North Dakota, and a better than average intelHgence, coupled with industrious application, kept him here. His recreational pursuits consisted of an excellent sub-eighty golf game, a fine tennis game, and a good hand of bridge, which he picked up in his spare moments during second class summer. Never over enthusiastic about the ladies, Swede managed to score in the high thirties when he did decide to concede them a portion of his time. In contrast to its casual beginning, we look for Swede ' s career to be long and successful. FREDERIC THEODORE HANSEN -. , Eau Claire, Wisconsin IVlinnesota lost their best rooter when Fritz changed his address from the Beta House to Bancroft Hall, U.S. Naval Academy. Two years there hadn ' t prepared him for the shock, but with his usual cheerfulness and enthusiasm he took it in his stride and managed to wind up high in his class. Sports, bridge, and swing, " solid enough to sit on, " were his hobbies. Lord help you if he beat you to the Washington Post before breakfast. During the winters he debated at Quarterdeck and in the Spring did a hot job holding down first base. Weekends found him at the hop but never twice with the same drag. This is one boy you ' ll see on top. ROBERT LEROY HANSEN rj Wyoming, Iowa 1 he Swede grew up in the tall corn state. After a year as Joe College he discovered the Navy and settled down to textbooks, an occasional light work out, a game of tennis, or an afternoon blissfully spent on his bunk. A faithful mem- ber of the choir, his musical talent also finds expression in an old trumpet and a highly specialized manipulation of the radio dial. Not being one especially at- tracted to the weaker sex, Swede spends most of his weekends in the local movie theater. Undecided about his future, he has one eye on the Air Corps. RALPH MORGAN HANSON y Graceville, Minnesota INIothing here has ever worried the little " Swede " from Minnesota, so we can come to the conclusion that nothing the Navy has to offer will dampen his buoyant spirit. Since the tangle with the English, History, and Government Department his first plebe year, Ralph has managed to steer clear of academic troubles. Making up for his " sandblower " dimensions was a vitality that was often too much for us. Many times his requests for a set of tennis, or a dip in the natatorium fell on deaf ears. His enthusiasm was never restricted to sports, for dragging, stagging or bragging, Swede was always one jump ahead of us. I JOHN ALLISON HARDY J Columbus, Mississippi J udgc Hardy was a respectful enough name, but it hardly became its owner, forjudge was six feet-two and 190 pounds of charging tackle while he enjoyed his title. Judge, a native son of Ole Miss, spent his pre-academic days in the calm, peaceful atmosphere of a cotton plantation. Perhaps this explains his steady, easy-going manner — a poise which he maintains both on the field and in the section room. " The Judge " was never overly fond of his books, but paid them sufficient homage to see him through. With an excellent physique and an abun- dance of good judgment, he will make an outstanding Marine pilot. WILLIAM MAX HARNISH - Champaign, Illinois IVlax made the jump from the University of Illinois campus to the Naval Academy about as easily as he does everything. In fact, only two things ever bothered him while he was here at the academy; one was youngster cruise, and the other was the length of time between leaves. Youngster year, our boy blossomed out into quite a promising snake, being seen with some of the very best Eastern seaboard material. But, alas, love came to Max — Youngster June Week saw his downfall, and Max spent his last year counting the days until those two long, hard years would be up. Mark, we hope you appreciate him — he ' s one of ' 43 ' s best. Jc JOHN PETER HARRELL Ardmore, Oklahoma lohnnie was already a champ when he came, and he didn ' t slow down a bit. He brought the Intercollegiate Heavyweight Wrestling title from Oklahoma A. and M., and went on to win his " N " and the name of " Horse- power " on the gridiron, plus letters in wrestling and track. Although his year- round sports activities took most of his time, Johnnie rarely missed a weekend. While others played the field, he stuck to his true love, and it looks like a sure thing. Three years with " Big John " were only too short, for there was never a better friend and roommate. Good luck, old-timer. It was great to have had you aboard. 0- 1ic , JOHN CARROLL HAYNIE, JR. . Carrollton, Alabama J faithful son of Dixie from ' way down south in Alabama, John firmly believed that every day should be spent in sipping mint juleps while loung- ing under the shade of a magnolia tree. Because of practical considerations, John, of course, had to make concessions. Having a keen interest in baseball, he was always seen in his place on second base when his company played softball. He especially delighted in shouting in his fast talking way, trying to rattle the pitcher with his southern expressions. Being fond of sailing and bridge, he had a unique method of combining both by taking a deck of cards to the boat. ? .3tL. if. t ■v« ■ - ALLEN CURTIS HENDLEY . Memphis, Tennessee ii-llen left Memphis back in 1937 bound for Crabtown via the long hard road — from the fleet. After a year on the New York, and another in the prep school at Norfolk, he joined Forty-three. Allen could usually be found in his room or near it either sleeping or playing pinochle. However, he did play some battalion tennis, boxed plebe year, and had quite a whirl at chess during youngster year. An interest in the bounding main made him an enthusiastic member of the Boat Club. Never a slouch in the classroom, he managed to find time to drag on weekends and hops without him were rare. Hendley will find himself at home on blue water. Af SU [s[x.c.ulk NORBERT FRANCIS HESSE HowELLs, Nebraska lifter classes " Norb " could usually be found in one of two places: on the wrestling mat or in his bunk; in either place he was flat on his back. How- ever, this lad from a western farm could have given as good a performance in the classroom as he did on the wrestling team and the battalion track team, if he wouldn ' t have said, " Now what ' s the good of this. " Before the final exams each semester Norb could be found over in the library looking up information of labor conditions and possibilities of wealth in Brazil. With women he was strong — against them — except one at home. LAWRENCE HEYWORTH, JR. „ Chicago, Illinois iJattalion football in the fall, battaHon boxing in the winter, and golf in the spring — in these sports " Laurie " , most clearly exhibited his athletic prowess. When not building himself up physically, our " brain child " built himself up mentally by absorbing the contents of a good book. Finding drags for weekends was never a serious problem for Laurie; what drag could resist those handsome features and that smooth line. Dragging, however, came second to his golf game; and any girl who was distracting enough to keep Larry from his golf had every right to consider herself quite an attraction. It FRED CREGAN HILL YouNGSTOWN, Ohio It is hard to forget Fred ' s cheerful attitude on Monday mornings, his clever imitations of our " renowned characters " in the Executive and Academic departments, or the day his wife bought a green visor to shade the glare from Fred ' s broad brow. When it came to extra-curricular activities, Fred was not lacking in abihty. Besides being a member of the Newman Club and the Reception Committee, " F. C. " took time out for swimming, basketball, softball, and track in their appropriate seasons. We wish him best o ' luck, knowing where a generous and friendly personality will succeed, Fred will be that success. y iuL L . i Xi. u K M ifotArt i : ' ' i uJxXL:-oma Q. il-dJi q;|2 59« - " ' (Z ' Md (FJjouxc. WILLIAM OLIVER HILL J-, Lexington, Kentucky oome of us have what it takes and some of us don ' t. " Feathers " has it — that unaccountable something that made knowing him a pleasure. Whether it be wrestling, women, or work, his attack is in an easy going manner, common to the sons of Kentucky. Since relaxation comes natural to this lad, it was only natural to find him at all the hops, in frequent poker games, and on the tennis court. His fight with the academics, and it was a tough battle, was long and hard, but he came through. Now, as an officer, he will continue his success, for he has all the requisites of an officer and shipmate. iV- Af STANLEY MAX HOGSHEAD Hudson, Iowa Lfter having completed two years at Iowa State Teacher ' s College, " Dumpling " decided that he wanted to know something about the sea and the men who sailed on it. At the academy, he won many friends with his many stories and ready smile. His deep bass voice made him a part of the choir although it is said that the first time he was heard the babies cried and the dogs howled. (Don ' t believe it!) Sports were his idea of fun and he became not inexpert at baseball, tumbling, cross country and golf The fact that good is not good enough for Stan makes us sure that he will be an outstanding officer. ROBERT PATRICK HORRIGAN y Detroit, Michigan Ijob hides a genial and fun-loving personality under a quiet and unassuming appearance. He is not the flashy type, but easy-going with a pair of long legs and an appealing personality always enjoying life to the fullest. Being a champion at bridge and an intermittent winner at poker, he was usually found in a card game. Liking a well rounded social life, he was a frequent feature at the hops, and when not passing the pasteboards could usually be found at the billiard table in Recreation Hall. However, these are not the full extent of his pursuits; he enjoys everything and everyone enjoys him. ALVIN DOUGLAS HUFF rr-i MiDDLESBORO, KENTUCKY 1 ired of being chased by the fleet footed Kentucky " dears, " Al decided to retire behind the Nation ' s first line of defense. He embarked on his Naval career with an ease equal to that with which a steed was ever mounted in all Kentucky. Having no trouble with academics, Al found lots of time to exercise at bunk drill with letters both to and from a southern belle. He could play an interesting game of tennis, be good on any track team, be a credit to any Softball team, and sailed with the air of the best sailors. Still riding smoothly like a Kentucky colonel, great things can be expected of Al. 9 n ■j r ' Pl 1 1 p J B ' v H r J J -A % W: ( . ii ' A i (yrtX£ rtJ : «■ WILLIAM SANFORD HUMPHREY, JR. -Q San Antonio, Texas Jjill ' s most marked inborn trait is his diligence. His love of hard work was clearly shown by his excellent records in cross country and track. After serving three years as an enlisted man he came to the academy with an understand- ing and a love for the Navy that has only been strengthened by his stay here as a midshipman. His frankness and sincerity may sometimes be misunderstood, but his square dealing, his tactful manner, and his captivating smile, won him a place in all our hearts. Surely there is a place of distinction for him in that service he loves so well. A EUGENE JAMES HUNTEMER Wayne, Nebraska staunch supporter of his home state, Jean will always take time out to tell " you " how they do it back in Nebraska. " Easy to talk to, and a grand person to live with, he made many close friends, both among those at the academy and the drags he favors on the weekends. An athlete of no mean ability, he played basketball, winning three awards, and helped out the battalion track team. Besides being an athlete, he has, by his efficient way of doing things well, earned the unjust reputation of being somewhat of a cut-throat. Jean is sure to be a success as an officer and we sincerely hope to be his shipmate someday. ERWIN SHAW JACKSON -w rj Ashland City, Tennessee When it comes to people who make life a little more enjoyable, you can put this Jackson boy on top of your Hst. Perhaps it is the effect sunny Tennessee has had upon him, but whether it is a bull session, or round at the canteen, he is a ready mixer and always ready to make a joke as well as to take one. Organized athletics were not in his line, but he ' d take on all comers in any- thing from tennis to bridge, and give them all competition. Sailing was his real interest and he would rise at all hours to race. A red Mike? Just ask any of those belles from Tennessee he dragged. EARL BANKS JOHNSON J-, Greensboro, Alabama Oandy, as he is known to most of his classmates, is a true Southerner. His ability to relax and enjoy most any situation gives him a personality that is always cheerful but definitely distinctive. He is an ardent reader of books and magazines, but his greatest enjoyment probably comes from building models of various sorts, for at this he is very efficient. When it comes to getting mail, Sandy is certainly a cutthroat, for many are the times that the mate has given a sigh of satisfaction as he unloaded upon Sandy ' s desk enough mail to make an outsider think he was president of the Superman Club. Certainly when Sandy is enumerat- ing his many friends, there is one which he would never fail to mention ... his bunk. vT - DONALD RICHARD JONES -p Indianapolis, Indiana Uoc might have been a great fencer or trackman, if he hadn ' t sensed that dragging would be his chief pleasure. Early plebe year he turned from athletics to letter writing, in order to lay the groundwork of an outstanding career as a " snake. " Natural ability made it easy for him to be one of the Chess Club ' s leading players, and accounts for his later election as its Secretary during youngster year. First class year found him pointing for one of the leading parts in the Mas- queraders. But his real energy was expended in searching out the great truth of his life . . . that a Virginia girl is tops. ROBERT LYONS JUNGKLAS U-. J Saginaw, Michigan iVlidshipman Jungklas, 4 c, sir! " — - " Carry on, I ' m your new wife. " That was the start of three years together by the bay. It really has been three wonderful years. Savvy? His class standing shows that. Personality plus? Ask his multitude of friends. Hoiman ' s activities were numerous: plebe lacrosse, battalion lacrosse, press detail, and pep committee. His first love, the Reception Committee, gave him the rating of Battalion Chairman during first and second class years. Junk ' s three years here were divided between dragging queens and receiving visiting teams, and there is no doubt that he was successful in both fields of endeavor. L ROBERT DUANE KARL Aberdeen, South Dakota Ln the summer of ' 39 there emerged from the badlands of South Dakota a blonde, genial farmer preferring the call of the sea to a career in the cornfields. Swede has made a wonderful wife, always willing to lend a hand, whether it be on a juice prob or financing our dragging weekends. He never was much of a snake at the academy, so we very seldom saw him favoring one of the fair with his contagious laugh and friendly philosophy. A thorough student of Nimrod, a lover of soft and sentimental music, an able but indifferent athlete, and a sincere and highly valued friend, that ' s " Swede. " H. HARRY BRADLEY KELLER Carbondale, Illinois Larry hailed from the tip of southern Illinois, which he firmly believed was Heaven on earth and entirely separate from the rest of the state. Mechanically minded, Harry breezed through most technical subjects, but the literary ones sometimes had him stumped. With his affections steadfastly secured back home to a certain brunette, he wasn ' t much of a ladies ' man. Almost every afternoon would find Harry in his beloved shop, painstakingly making some intri- cate model, that he forgot as soon as completed. Steady and reliable, Harry was the ideal roommate for one who was exactly opposite and weak on the mechanical side. M 3A:i££ lS - - Q. JOHN WALTER KELSEY, JR. St. Paul, Minnesota Juick and witty — that ' s our John. Possessed of a native inteUigence which enabled him to grasp the gist of a long assignment in a few casual glances, this debonair product of the Minnesota Union spent most of his time making his friends laugh. Literature has its Benchley, Hollywood has its Hope, Radio has its Allen — all we need is John. He can be quiet and reserved too, when the occasion demands, but it ' s a distinct effort. His resources have not as yet been plumbed and we ' re looking forward to the great things that are yet to come from this friend of friends. We hope he drops that trumpet overboard. JOSEPH CLIFTON KEMP -, Shreveport, Louisiana It all began in the summer of ' 39 when " J. C, " as he is known by all, was recruited from the R.O.T.C. at Texas A. and M. The Army lost again that time, because J. C. has made a wonderful record here at the Naval Academy. Even with his acute lack of size he was still a boxer of no mean ability and a crew coxswain who could really handle a shell. A good bit of his time was spent dragging and very commendably too — mainly as a result of that very fruitful youngster cruise in southern waters. Aside from all that, J. C. was never found wanting in officer-like qualities — always a good shipmate and a credit to the service. EDWARD EARL KERR rj-, Houston, Texas J. here were no momentous decisions to be made when Ed received the opportunity to become a naval officer for he had set his goal many years before to achieve that ambition. This handsome lad came to us from the state famous for its beautiful girls, which may be one reason why he was so particular what girls he dragged. His principal extra-curricular activity was either dragging or sleeping (the way his cruise was spent). A pleasing adaptable personality and incentive to work made him a welcome addition to any company, whether sailing, dragging, or just indulging in an ever present breeze session. HENRY CARL KIRCHNER , j Hinsdale, Illinois 1 hat mysterious spirit of the Navy reached out and touched " Kirch " while still a senior in high school. From that day the struggle began, and it was not until two years later that Bancroft College opened its doors and per- mitted him to enter. Since then his continuous battle with the Academic depart- ment, the Medical department, and his receding hairline has kept him fairly well occupied, but he still found time for a maximum of dragging with a minimum of cost. His extra-curricular activities included nothing requiring physical exercise, but he did, at times, desert his sack and books to serve on the Reception Committee.

A. was de- termined to prove that a plainsman could become a good naval officer, even if he did have trouble developing his sea legs. Small in stature but abounding in words, " Brother " could squeeze into and talk himself out of most situations. His acid wit and take-offs on individuals never permitted a dull moment to pass. If the Marines don ' t get him, he will continue in his " never say die " attitude out in the fleet, striving not for height, but for perfection. PHILIP CARLETON KOELSCH (i- -r J Houston, Texas W here are you from, mister. " This question always troubled Phil plebe year. Having claims to Texas, California, Virginia, and New York — and even having lived in England, he was doubtful as to the correct answer. A little thing like this troubled him as little as did academics, however. He was no " star " man, but the conviction that what has been done before can be done again carried him through easily. When not playing soccer, he was to be found in the gym beating the cover off a squash ball, and challenging all comers. A small- ship man at heart, Phil will be an asset wherever he goes. ALBERT CONSTANCE KOPLEWSKI K DOWAGIAC, MlCHIGAN Oon of the soil with a love for the elements " — that is Al. A rugged Lithuanian physique, an analytical mind, a desire for self improvement, and a " sea fever " were the sole foundations upon which " Kopper " erected the structure of his naval career. Humorous, considerate, and intensely loyal, with a " Gunga Din like " disregard for personal interests, Al soon formed the many firm friend- ships he so richly deserved, and after wrestling, dancing, studying, and laughing his way through the Naval Academy, Al set sail for that elusive destination, " success. " " Lookout reports clear course ahead, Al. " JOSEPH ALOIS KRIZ t,r-y OsHKosH, Wisconsin 1 his Maryland weather is certainly conducive to sleeping. I believe I ' ll turn in. " These were Joe ' s often repeated sentences, for if he was not occupied with his many activities and hobbies he was sure to be found in his bunk. His fourth platoon height in no way checked his participation in athletics. During their appropriate seasons Joe could be found playing battalion football, basketball, and Softball. His pleasing personality and cooperative nature were invaluable assists in his work with the Log, Reception Committee, and Press Gang, and should insure his success for a brilliant career in the Navy. c U. f c.

" Back in Sheboygan, his neighbors know they lost a potential politician when he joined forces with Uncle Sam. His political turn of mind was shown by his love of debate; the more practical side by managing the basketball team. Ask him about those Softball home runs that got him more spoons (plebe year) than the mess-hall has. A little Wisconsin lass occupied his heart and locker door. When the wind suddenly shifts, we ' ll know Arch is to leeward. PAUL LINDSAY LACY Dallas, Texas Jjang! Another six shooter packer from Texas. This versatile and savvy lad traded his college slacks of Southern Methodist for a Navy uniform. Pablo became a star man with ease, finding time for football, basketball, his beloved baseball, sleep, and bridge. With a marvelous personality, a natural sense of humor, and a worldly knowledge, one never found a dull moment with Paul, especially the ladies. We admit he isn ' t handsome, but he had that certain Texas knack of being likable to anyone. Pablo ' s main ambition is to be an aviator, and we know he will be tops in whatever he undertakes. Buena suerte, Pablo. ALLEN NEWMAN LASATER , j McLeansboro, Illinois 1 he major leagues lost a fine prospect when " Las " forsook the University of Illinois for the Naval Academy. A great ball player with a rifle-like throw, " Al " wielded a big stick for Navy both as an outfielder and a pitcher. Also a basketball player, his lightning-like passes and keen eye placed him on the varsity. For a hobby he was usually playing Beethoven or boogie woogie on the piano. Academics never worried him, but the Executive department was often one up on carefree Al. His unsurpassed humor made him a wonderful roommate and won him many friends, in whose memories of academy life Las will live forever. RICHARD RHODES LAW -j- Belvidere, Illinois Uick was not just a member of ' 43, but an outstanding representative of his class and battalion. Two sets of numerals on his bathrobe were reminders of regimental championships in basketball. We Hked Dick ' s " chin up " attitude, which stemmed from the sporting nature of his home, Belvidere, Illinois. We cannot forget his services on our Lucky Bag Staff and our Class Ring Committee. After youngster year, he was convinced that everything is relative, and this knowledge appears to have been an education in itself Wherever there is good fellowship, keen competition, and all-around fun, you will always find him.

He reached his peak by surprising everyone youngster year when he was first in the two mile against the Kaydets — he ' ll be showing that medal to his grandchildren! His rosy Irish beauty attracted the females and contributed to his uncanny ability to ride the " gravy train. " KENITH VISEN LINDSTROM jrj Cadillac, Michigan When Michigan sent the Navy this big blonde Swede, there was no doubt of an investment being well made. Ken ' s inexhaustible energy and deter- mination to succeed coupled with an even disposition will always place him near the top. Academics never proved to be an especial worry after a year of previous college training, and a good novel usually superceded lessons. Athletically inclined, plebe fall found him on the gridiron doing his utmost for Navy Blue and Gold. He found a keen interest in lacrosse and tennis, but when not busy on the athletic field, a sailboat on the blue Severn proved most interesting. His pleasing person- ality and versatility will make him a capable officer and an ideal shipmate. BENJAMIN FRANKLIN LOHR -J. Lincoln, Nebraska i eaving in a cloud of Nebraska dust, Ben finally landed in the Naval Academy with a good coat of salt gained in the fleet. He believed in the conservation of energy, putting out nothing and gaining everything, and yet he ended up in the first hundred of the class. His true loves were the gym, where he did mortal combat with the rings, side horses, and most every other piece of apparatus, and the mess hall where the food never fazed him. To his drags he was that " strong silent Westerner, " and to his friends he was a darn likable, easy going fellow who could really be depended on. Ai i JAJl£ WILLIAM STANLEY LUBERDA -P Hammond, Indiana JJig Lou from Hammond came into the academy through difficulties that would ordinarily dishearten the majority. Keeping right on working, he has wrested some enviable marks from the Academic department. On the baseball dia- mond, Lou did a good deal of the varsity hurling — he was also an ace on the football " B " squad. If you had a secret, Lou would keep it; if you wanted to have a good loud argument, Lou would give you strong competition. He didn ' t as- sociate very much with the members of the fairer sex, but then we didn ' t see him in action on leave — those pictures in his locker weren ' t of his sister! 1. - ' » aX Cy. fCt yxM- J -o- -.

Having a little difficulty in acclimating himself to the rigors of academy life, he consequently had his troubles with the Academic and Executive departments. Whether pitching batting practice or on the mound for a varsity game, Mac ' s all concerning passion was baseball. When not talking about his favorite subject he always had a funny story to liven things up. Gifted with a real optimistic spirit and an infallible good humor, Mac has all the characteristics of an ideal shipmate. RICHARD OSCAR MADSON DuLUTH, Minnesota Linnesota, that great health spot of lakes and forests sent one of its robust lads down to the sunny Severn to share with us our newly-won goal. Dick was always many jumps ahead of the Academic departments which allowed him to devote more time to his favorite sport which was always football, and there is no prouder man than he of his state ' s achievements in that sport. He dragged fair femmes and played a mean game of soccer with equal ease. A winning smile, a dynamic personality, a keen mind, and an athletic ability were outstanding qualities that will bring him much success in his chosen naval profession. WILLIAM JOHN MANBY, JR. rj South Bend, Indiana 1 here never has been and there never will be a more clean-cut, congenial, and straightforward fellow to graduate from the academy than Bill Manby. His sincerity and pleasing personality have made him one of the most popular fellows in the class. Bill ' s knowledge of sports has been a source of increas- ing wonder to us — he is virtually a walking encyclopedia of the sport world. But he has not confined his interest to the sporting page; for Bill has done a fine job at wrestling. After starting from scratch during plebe summer, he worked up to varsity by youngster year. He has fallen for more than one girl while here and he never seemed to have much trouble in helping the gals make up their minds; they just couldn ' t resist those sparkling blue eyes. WILLIAM JAMES MARTIN . Farmer City, Illinois After spending the first seventeen years of his life in a small town, Bill yielded to his urge to travel by joining the Navy. On arriving at the academy, he traveled straight to his bunk at the sound of every study period bell. His fine class standing is proof that he could use a textbook for a pillow with success. To give himself a change from bunk drill and crossword puzzles. Bill usually swam or wrestled during his spare afternoons. Then with the experience of a season of plcbe wrestling as a foundation, he became such a capable grappier that he always won every fight for chow during the remainder of his academy career. Q.,MJ .

" N ' ' s, " " N ' s " and hop committee aiguillettes show his proficiency in football, track and aptitude for the service. As for the girls, he ' s mighty susceptible, showing up with a new one after every leave. Naturally easy going and utterly adaptable, Willy hob nobs with the officers and G.

GEORGE BUNYON MAY j Clarendon, Arkansas 1 oung Lochinvar rode out of the West, but George came straight from Arkansas. Plebe summer found George much interested in the gym team, but, as with many, the beginning of academic year reduced extra-curricular activities to a minimum. He struggled mightily with plebe steam and youngster math, but the Arkansas ace always came through. During second class summer, George was co-manager of plebe tennis. He never missed an opportunity to drag, and it is rumored that many a feminine heart beats for our George. Playing a good hand of bridge and being at all times agreeable, George will contribute much to any J. O. Mess. BRIAN McCAULEY San Antonio, Texas )ix feet two of happy-go-lucky Texan, Brian was one of the few exemplars of the carefree type who never seem to run afoul of the Academic departments. His arrival at the academy in 1939 was the satisfaction of a life-long ambition. During plebe summer, he discovered what was to become the one love of his midshipman career. Crew became a year-round sport from then on and was climaxed by his election as captain. Beginning with the inter-company competition and then in plebe and varsity boats, he didn ' t fail to be in there pulling in a single race. Keep pulling, Mac, and you ' ll go places.

From the rolling plains of Texas he moved quietly into the academy and has never lost the stoic calm of the great wide spaces. His interest in old guns manifested itself in a prominent position on the indoor and outdoor rifle and company pistol teams. Not a consistent draggcr, he found plenty of time on weekends for the Reception Committee. Handball in the afternoon, " Let ' s turn in early, " and his day was complete. Z ' % Jm. V 2tu:cA rm ROBERT McCHESNEY McCONNELL, JR. AKnoxville, Tennessee true representative of the hills of Tennessee — habitually lazy and a drawl you can cut with a knife — that ' s our Mac. Being a physical culture addict at heart and harboring no intense desire for the indoor life and wearisome existence of the average professional man, he selected the Navy as an avenue of escape to years of travel, adventure, and perhaps a little fighting. Battalion sports and a constant struggle for a treeless week kept him busy for the three years. Never unsat but never savvy — " Funny I didn ' t get the answer on that one. " M. ALEXANDER GRANT McEWEN DuLUTH, Minnesota Lac came to the Naval Academy as the result of a competitive examination, and thus realized a life-long ambition to become a Naval officer. Whether on Lake Superior or Chesapeake Bay, sailing has been his hobby and his principal source of real pleasure. From it has come his love for boats and the sea. Not troubled too much by his studies, he spent his spare time fencing, sailing, or sleeping, and chow and dragging formed no small part of his interests. Mac has done his share of escorting the fairer sex, and the success he has had is tacit proof of the perception of the girl back home, who charts his course. PATRICK HENRY McGANN yj Cincinnati, Ohio 1 at will be long remembered by his classmates as the square shouldered Irishman who thrived on chocolate sodas in an atmosphere of martial music. His exceptionally high standards of morals and ideals commanded the respect of all who knew him. Pat preferred a grinding work out on the cross country course to that popular pastime called dragging. Mac ' s pleasing sense of humor enabled him to safely ask any Georgia lad for his rendition of that state song — " Marching Through Georgia. " Pat ' s intelligence, character, and person- ality will make any officer proud to have him either as messmate or skipper. Tt CHARLES FREDRIC MERZ Battle Creek, Michigan here still might be some argument on the pronunciation, whether it ' s Battle Crick or Battle Creek, but we do know all about the place. It ' s the home of Kellogg ' s Corn Flakes and Charlie. Charhe ' s interest centered pretty much around crew, but it never was hard to find him. If he wasn ' t out on the Severn or talking crew to someone, he was near a " vie " playing ultra loud with one of B. G. ' s latest or a boogie woogie conga on the table. Charlie made a lot of friends here, and with all the work, good times, and a " Blue Monday " now and then he ' s well seasoned, ready for anything the Navy can offer. FRANCIS ALBERT MEYER y-, San Antonio, Texas r rank traded those wide open spaces of the Lone Star State for the confines of the Naval Academy to fulfill his ambition to become a Naval officer. He entered into the spirit of things by staging an epic and successful battle with the math department, and two youngster cruises didn ' t warp his character as much as we might have expected. Finding studies rather dull and a little monot- onous anyway, he busied himself as Circulation Manager of the Log and as a mem- ber of the Reception Committee, and had plenty of time left over for habitual dragging. All in all, not a bad fellow, with an assurance of success — that ' s Frank. DONALD ARTHUR MILLER » PoMEROY, Ohio Vfter attending Ohio University for a year Don decided that the future of a Naval officer attracted him more than civilian life. With a dry sense of humor and a quality of issuing remarks that are as subtle as a train wreck, D.A. was always ready with a quick reply. Although he confined his activities to the radiator squad and letter writing, his main hobby was collecting good music. Though not a giant in size, his ability to do things at the right time and to do them well will make him a desirable shipmate in the fleet. You can count on Don to keep the gears of the fleet rolling smoothly. At KENNETH MAYNARD MILLER Olathe, Kansas Lt sometime in every man ' s life there comes a special event which contains more than just an element of surprise, thus it was with Kenny on receiving an appointment to a remote place called Annapolis. As with most others, some time passed before the Naval environment seemed natural to him, for the most water he had ever seen out on plains of Kansas was the old swimming hole. Although never excelling in athletics, he took a ready interest in soccer and in Softball. He found special delight in a friendly wrestling match or a game of hand- ball. Kenny has the courage of his convictions and the ability to uphold them. £ BcryicJUL a. 9KiMiJt 7 1 ■ " ■Jt- - GREGG MUELLER .

Rated as a " savoir, " he didn ' t keep his abihty to himself, always being ready to lend a hand when the Math was tough or the Thermo unfathomable. Not a star athlete, Gregg managed however, to keep in physical trim with swimming, handball, and other not-too-strenuous sports. Activities also formed a substantial part of his schedule and though seldom seen at hops he had a good reason — a lovely girl with a diamond back in Indiana. ROBERT JAMES MURPHY -pj Cleveland, Ohio x5ig Murph ' s your ideal fightin ' Irishman; and by " Big " Murph, we mean he ' s really big — all over. His talents go beyond athletics. We ' ve laughed through bull sessions with him, and swear that vaudeville lost an ace comedian when Murph climbed into sailor pants. Bob ' s curly head with those laughing Irish eyes nearly went under in academics at times, but when it " was sink or swim, " he really made knots. Kinda suspect Murph of carrying a Blarney Stone to use on his drags. " Quality not quantity " is his attitude toward the lassies. And knock ' em cold he does — Blarney Stone or no. Ve JESSE ABNER NAYLOR Kansas City, Missouri ery early plebe year Jess started making ketch trips, and after that time he became one of the most prominent Boat Club members and a con- sistent disciple of those Sunday dragging trips. Aside from sailing, he liked swim- ming, but most of all he liked leave. Each week found Jess resting up for the next weekend, and each term found him resting up for the next leave. Jess stood above average in his class with little or no effort. His carefree personality has won him many friends among the plebes as well as among his own classmates. His greatest weakness was for blondes, but he acquired considerable ability in handling them. JOHN LASSWELL NICHOLS ,; , Fort Worth, Texas JNick " left the chicken business in Texas to become a sailor. With a year at Texas A. M. as a military background, he was well prepared to face the rigors of the Naval Academy. Nick ' s cheery smile and willing hand made him a favorite with everyone. Always able and ready to assist an applicant for help on that tough prob. Nick proved himself the ideal friend, classmate and roommate. A fall afternoon would find him out on the field punishing the soccer ball. Well, the poultry business may have lost a potential tycoon, the Coast Artillery may have lost a great gunner, but the Navy has gained one swell fellow.

Although he stood high in the class, he could have been called neither slash nor cut-throat. He did whatever was given him to do quietly and efficiently. As a plebe he took an active part in battalion basketball and plebe track. After plebe year, most of his activities were in unorganized sports — and bunk drill. He was a well-informed and enthusiastic sports fan and can always be counted on for the straight dope on the baseball and football teams. His weaknesses were boogie woogie, the St. Louis Cardinals, and the St. Louis Blues. JAMES DAVIS OLIVER, JR. ,_p Birmingham, Alabama 1 hese few words can ' t begin to let you know the man, but they can let you know about him. Jimbo is one of those quiet, serious boys from the deep South. His naturalness, sincerity, and real sense of humor will keep on bringing him close friendships to add to the many he made at the academy. At one time or another he served on the Reception Committee, attended Spanish Club, played tennis, became a golf addict, and wore stars. Bowling, bridge, and good dance music were his pet pleasures. Jim ' s one ambition has been to make a Naval officer worthy of his own and his country ' s ideals. A Ja-xvi r (3y ' ' - «- -« t(5- WARREN GLENN OLSON EscANABA, Michigan letterman back in Michigan at Escanaba High, Warren ' s athletic interests here consisted of track and cross country. To these he added his services on the Reception Committee. In the " two-in-one " year he turned to the gentle- manly sport of golf, where his tremendous drives and unerring chip shots earned him quite a reputation in the battalion. Warren did not know the meaning of the term " red mike. " During the week he gave his all for academics, the battalion, and his career (they do not pass out two P. O. ' s to all Second Classmen), but on the weekend one would find him enjoying the company of some lovely young lady. FRANK PARNELL OMOHUNDRO ,-j Garrett, Indiana rSy these words you shall know him, " I ' m going to break somebody ' s back. " Strangely, though, it was his own back that got the workout, either on the athletic field, over at the crew house, or in the gymnasium. Big, powerful, and rugged — " Omo " took the path of most resistance, and a three year crew man emerged. Few things had the power to perturb him, and few of them did, but next week ' s drag, financial complications, and unnoticed Juice constants partially accounted for his ever increasing forehead. The envy of us all, he has that unique combination of attributes which leaves him best described as a Naval officer. iSEi k p. " JPa i Aji [bM } JACKSON WELCH PARKER . BoNiTA, Mississippi Xi-fter hearing Jack sing in the shower, one could easily guess that he came from the deepest South. From the land of the magnolias, he came to the academy to become a naval officer instead of a brick manufacturer. During those numerous free periods, you could always find Jack somewhere making a five bid out of a possible four. His favorite pastimes were bridge, handball, swimming, and reading. There was always time in his schedule for plenty of fun and a good time. Jack is constant and sure in his duties. In the race with the Academic depart- ments, he barely missed obtaining those coveted stars. BILLUPS PHINIZY PERCY A Greenville, Mississippi iiA dropped in for a brief three years from the levees of old man river. He followed his southern propensities for sleeping and playing poker for the most part, but every spring his outstanding tennis ability gained him a permanent place with the varsity. His enthusiasm for sports didn ' t stop here, for he soon developed a reputation as an authority on all sports, especially football. His quiet personality combined with pleasant southern wit and humor had the cooling genial effect of the famous plantation julep. Phin combined studies, drags, skags, and leaves with being a pleasant companion and roommate during these years, and we will be more than happy to be shipmates with him anytime. ROBERT MARVIN PETERSON , Minneapolis, Minnesota Out of the cold of Minnesota, Pete, often called " Swede, " came to Annapolis with his eye on a star and a stripe. He brought with him a broad grin and a sharp eye and left with the promise of a bright future. Quick to find the fun in life, his dry humor always proved a tonic, and, although his somewhat silent and unassuming ways at first proved deceiving, a glance at his album soon set us aright. We admired him most, however, for the broad and complete perspective with which he was able to view and judge his shipmates. The Navy will find him to be dependable and reHable, while his fellow officers will find him to be a true friend. RICHARDSON PHELPS, JR. • Minneapolis, Minnesota Amateur yachtsman, radio " ham, " rope climber, mild " savoir, " past master at double entendre, a free and easy philosophy on life — in short, " that of course, but a great deal more, " a sincere enthusiasm characterized Dick in any activity no matter how small. Never bothered by academics ( " I ' ll spot ' em today ' s lesson " ), he always had time to help those who were. His locker door was ajoy to behold, and he worked hard justifying it. Not the least of his attributes is a genuine love of his work, and in a few more years the Navy will have another " salt horse " officer to handle a diplomatic post or salvage job with equal skill.

He was as rugged as the logs he used to cut back in Arkansas — and sometimes just as stubborn! Plebe year Buckshot was a track man, so any afternoon he wasn ' t " flaked out " you ' d find him galloping around the track or working out in the gymnasium. Steady-minded, sincere, and good natured, Bryan was at his best as raconteur of his many experiences during an otherwise quiet, " Happy Hour.

" HERMAN POGGEMEYER, JR. -pj Leavenworth, Kansas r uggie, a son of the wheat fields of Kansas, came to the academy, when all his friends went to West Point. It was a fortunate choice for us. When not at his favorite haunt, the canteen, he was to be found enjoying a more moderate form of exercise — sleeping. He developed this into a science, but could always be roused at the chance of a good hot debate. Between these diversions, he found time to work on the Log staff and play on the battalion football team. His generous nature and good humor have made him a most pleasant roommate. Pug will always have the respect of all with whom he associates. JOHN DAVIS PRICE ,- Orlinda, Tennessee i he pride of Orlinda ' s two hundred (beg pardon, 511) inhabitants came to the Naval Academy to put his podunk on the county map. Although he had a few difficulties, he managed to stand high in his class and give the home town plenty of toots. " Jigger " was all for sports; but his bunk exerted a much greater influence. However, he managed to play battalion lacrosse, and to put his talents to work on the Ring Committee and as a Company Representative. He was always ready for a good time with an ever present smile, in spite of receiving numerous bricks. " Jigger " was a fine classmate and will do well wherever he goes. ' .• ' -.J. ' - ' .IV • !

Tommy ' s disposition was as sunny as he was fond of hunting and fishing, and that ' s saying a lot! Though not exactly a six-footer. Tommy was every inch a man. All three years he was out for football and baseball and it follows that he found it much easier to bat a .340 at the plate than he did to star in the section room. His three wives and all those who knew him will always remember Tom as an all-around athlete, a swell sport, and a true friend in every sense of the word.

Hartford, Alabama i quiet sense of humor, easy smile, good looks, and Alabama stick- ing out all over made Jimmy a swell fellow to have around all the time. Tussles with academics have left no marks on him. First class year was devoted to an en- deavor to win the prize for the best improvement in studies. One of the better big boat sailors at the academy, Jimmy did not let this passion interfere with work on the Reception Committee, Quarterdeck Society and quite a few battalion sports. Jim ' s interest in dragging, though, was somewhat submerged by his con- tinual participation in week-end yacht racing. JOHN EDWARD QUIRK . Detroit, Michigan iJy the end of second class year, John had completed his first novel. This was an outgrowth of his efforts as a top-notch feature editor of the Log. We all remember well the " Washington Boast " and the June Week issues of 194 1. He was successful, yea, even prominent, in his editorial positions on the Log, Trident, and Lucky Bag staffs. Many of our class had their one and onhes ohn was no exception. Back in Podunk Center John made his choice early in life and was eagerly looking forward to that permissible hour when he can say, " I do.

He was one of those happy midshipmen who never had to worry about bilging or starring, simply because he never came close to either. Dragging was another item which failed to bother him — he could take ' em or leave ' em alone. Rasputin had little luck in his attempts to make the fencing, track, and sailing teams, but the Navy would have had a sure Ail-American if only there had been a fishing team.

But then for a fellow who had always Hved in the sunny South, Maryland weather was quite a change. Three long years ago, from " the town where the big whistles blow, " came a true Southern lad to embark on a Naval career. He wore no stars nor " N ' s " for his southern temperament exacted no labor of him. His chief hobbies were a card game, sub squad, a Cosmo, or a " sack " drill.

It was discouraging to his wife to see him get up at daybreak, but that is the ceaseless energy of Frank. To keep his hand in he indulged in an occasional game of tennis, played a little cello, managed battalion football, and ran cross country.

The degree was soon forgotten, but the look lingered on. Academics had nothing to do with it, for getting high marks was Rib ' s greatest claim to fame. Perhaps it came from the yearly gym and swimming tests, Bill ' s pet aversions. Maybe it came from the assortment of blind drags he escorted to hops on the rare occasions when he gave up his usual Red Mike existence. Or possibly the fault lies in the hours spent on the Log and Lucky Bag. Bill, however, had a better story — he claimed that he was never happy except when he was worrying about something. EUGENE GILMOUR RICHARDSON (t-pj Omaha, Nebraska Xvich " ' emerged from the plains of Nebraska with a million-dollar smile, a radiant personality, and one firm ambition — to make a good Naval officer.

At Nebraska U. he carried the colors as their enthusiastic football manager. Studies came none too easy for Rich.

Possessed with a brilliant mind, he never knew the foils that academics could present, and the stars he has worn for three years have become accepted as part of his uniform. Scholarship, however, was only one of his fortes. The dynamite he packed in his two fists carried him through his intercollegiate boxing career with only one defeat, and the spring found Bill on the track as a pole vaulter. Unsurpassed as a " Yoo-hoo yodeler, " Punchy found the same female allure made dragging a favorite pastime. CHARLES DEPUY ROBISON, JR. -J-, Omaha, Nebraska r resh from the Cornhusker state in the summer of 1939 there came a tall, slim, young man of enthusiasm and fidelity. Often unnoticed among his class- mates, Charley ' s friends found him a true friend indeed, and enjoyed a friendship which pays dividends in the long run. This son of the plains found his love in sailing, and although his swimming prowess earned him his " N, " the salt air and the blue sea rolling beneath a trim academy yacht truly captured his fancy. But wherever his love for adventure and travel leads him, and whatever he does, no one will ever forget this " real guy.

He had his own ideas about most things — usually good ones — but if they didn ' t exactly conform to those of the crowd, he was not afraid to speak out. It was a constant source of pleasure to have him as a wife; he was a good mixer and always ready to go out for a game of ball, a workout in the gym, or an afternoon of sitting on the radiator. Frank could get along with anyone and will make his wardroom a much happier place with his good nature and keen wit. ROBERT HAMILTON ROSSELL A St. Louis, Missouri worshiper of the body beautiful, Bob substitutes his workout a day for the proverbial apple to keep himself gay and youthful and to dodge the Docs. Bob has taken an interest in specific sports such as crew, but his favorite workout is a run and a swim. He is happy and carefree, but loves heated argu- ments. An exponent of the maxim " Worry is ninety percent futile, " he is not rankled even by the E.D. Squad. Bob was usually to be found reading a magazine during study hours. Then too, love and women, one in particular, keep his mind quite busy. But the product of this philosophy is a promising aspirant who will be a welcome addition to any branch of the Naval Service. CHARLES KENNETH RUIZ . El Paso, Texas fter being reared in the ranch country of Texas, Ken attended prep school in California and there he received his first impressions of the Navy. Always interested in athletics, he was frequently to be found in the gym — either playing volleyball, handball, or wrestling for the Fighting First. Flis favorite sport was one unusual among Navy men — weight lifting. We finally agreed that it was a good physique builder, after much lively dissention. An expert photog- rapher, his work on the Lucky Bag and Trident staffs will long be remembered — and we will never forget his smile, his personality, and his ability to make friends and keep them.

With characteristic perseverance and a love for the game, he became one of the baseball teams star performers while holding down the hot spot. Jake ' s desire for a long career in the Navy has realized its first step. CARL BENSON RUSSELL _ Dayton, Ohio Ivuss migrated to Crabtown from the midwest with a devilish twinkle in his eyes, a heart-warming smile, and a desire to someday wear Navy wings. It was not until youngster cruise that he first glimpsed the sea and felt the salty tang of ocean spray. Academics provided insufficient competition for " Rocky " so he turned to lacrosse and battalion football, as well as the choir and Glee Club, for recreation and diversion. Each hop weekend he dragged a certain one, but not entirely because of her dancing ability. Torro ' s famous breeze sessions, his good humor, and his spontaneous laughter will be hard to forget. JAMES RUSSELL SAHLIN - _ Forest Lake, Minnesota JNo stranger to military disciphne, " Rusty " began his naval career in the fleet, obtaining his appointment to the academy the hard way. Thus far the Academic departments have made little trouble for him in his struggle up the ladder to graduation. Indeed, few are the weekends on which he and his O.A.O. cannot be seen about AnnapoHs. Since plebe year, Rusty has made the gym his weekday afternoon headquarters. Some day he hopes to pin a set of gold wings on his blou; and if the past years are any indication, there will be plenty of other things to match them. Happy landings always. Rusty.

His first and greatest love, however, was the Juice Gang; everyone in the regiment saw and admired his six phase signs for the shows at Mahan Hall. Almost a fanatic on Texas, " jump music, " bridge, and his always beloved Juice Gang, he presented his case in such an aff " able manner that he soon won us over to his side.

To make the Navy crew required a lot of hard work and long hours on the Severn, but he won his letter regardless. However, this didn ' t take out enough time to prevent his dragging whenever the opportunity presented itself or from blowing his clarinet. A tall, good-natured Norwegian, with a Uking for fishing and basketball, " Sandy " will go a long way without any trouble, and he intends that it be with the Navy Air Service. LEE RICHARD SCHERER - Covington, Kentucky X ee closely approached the midshipman ideal — he was an excellent student, a first-rate athlete, and an all-around good boy. Though he won his academic " stars " consistently year after year, he was not the " cut-throat " type. On the athletic field, he starred in tennis, in which he led Navy to victory over Army. He also gave his all for battalion basketball, softball, and golf Lee ' s sunny smile and pleasant disposition won him many friends. Moreover, his winning ways did not go unappreciated by the fairer sex, and he had quite a following. There is a definite demand for men of Lee ' s calibre in the Navy.

HUGH ANDREW SCOTT „ Leavenworth, Kansas ijoris came to us from dust swept Kansas bringing with him his sunny disposition, bright humor, and the highest of ideals. Three years at the academy did not change him and he was always anxious to help his friends, be it with academics or troubles of the heart. What Scotty lacked in height was certainly made up in inexhaustible energy. Soccer and track with the odd moments taken up by the Movie Gang, Reception Committee, and Lucky Bag staff, kept him pretty well occupied. Weekends usually found him dragging. Scotty will be a 4.0 shipmate wherever he may be — a genuine friend and a true gentleman. jr mm. ! • A ZZ..trc:U o - ' C L cui ' uu, Jc JOHN WARREN SEDWICK Emporia, Kansas I ohn hailed from the wide-open spaces of Kansas and you could tell it by looking at him. Tall, lanky, and blond; his good-natured, easy-going manner and mischievous grin made it impossible not to like him. He was always giving help to someone, of one form or another. The first years John did not do any too well in his academics, in fact, he was almost kayoed a couple times, but his last year more than made up for them. He passed his three years here with little fan-fare or friction; the Boat Club, letter-vmting, swing music, hiking, and sleeping being his favorite pastimes and chief accomplishments. DANIEL RYAN SEIDELL yy Des Moines, Iowa Oefore becoming ensnared in our routine, Dan was a gentlemanly playboy with one glorious year at Iowa State. Plebe year Dan was the athletic boy, but after that dragging interfered, and the battalion teams received another member. Football, basketball, and lacrosse were his favorites. Besides athletics " Doc ' s " favorite pastimes were " shooting the breeze, " reading, and movies. In his reminiscent moods he dreamed of sheep ranches and Buick convertibles, but when necessary he was serious and easily overcame the academic obstacles. His cheerful nature and agressive spirit has won him high esteem among his classmates. w 0{ Aja Or LESLIE HALE SELL Johnson City, Tennessee ' ne sunny day in the summer of 1939, Les laid aside his squirrel rifle, bought himself a pair of shoes, and came to Uncle Sam ' s Naval Academy. This " rambling wreck from Georgia Tech " found the studies here just as easy as before. In fact, after every examination these woe laden halls rang with his favorite expressions, " It was fruit " or " Oh you Bucket, you. " Extra-curricular activities for this mountaineer were somewhat limited due to his attraction for the sub squad. What little time he did find was spent working out in the gym, at bridge, dreaming of the girl back home, and shooting on the rifle range. ROBERT JACK SELMER £, Eau Claire, Wisconsin Oheer fruit " — What an uproar Red would create with these words upon returning from a P-work or an examination, especially when the study hours were spent in the arms of Morpheus. He never did learn the trick of staying awake during study hour. The Norske splashed his way to an " N " with the Navy mermen, and could be found any afternoon churning up a wake in the pool. Although never a steady dragger, it was because the ONE wasn ' t close enough; she was also the reason Red trucked down to the mate for every mail delivery. Considering Red ' s abilities makes a prediction of his future seem superfluous. ( l ca M y . utc t ' TAZEWELL TAYLOR SHEPARD, JR. Mobile, Alabama 1 aze came to the academy after a year of work and a year at the University of Alabama. In addition to his natural placitude, he had a natural diligence and tenacity which made him work hard, while retaining the ability to relax completely. It was with admiration that we watched Taze squeeze that extra trick from a bridge hand, whittle those important seconds off his time in the half mile, turn on his charm for those attractive Southern drags, and concentrate on his studies. Tall and lanky, he loves good music and dancing, but more than those he loves the Service in which he should reach the top. Li JAMES WOODLEIGH SHORT Fort Worth, Texas jike a typical Texan, " Shorty " is slow but sure. Somehow, he always makes the grade with the least effort. In the spring and fall he drags himself away from his bunk and literature to work on the Ketch — his most strenuous activity. He is, however, not as lazy as he may seem. He uses most of his mental powers studying religion and philosophy or dabbling in photography, but never in academics. Thus, if you should see an easy-going Westerner with a cordial smile on his otherwise placid face and a lock of black hair over each eye, amble across your trail; that will be Shorty. Ti ARTHUR PLEASANT SIBOLD, JR. Chattanooga, Tennessee he solid South yielded a son as dependable as itself, when Art conquered his prejudices and headed north to what appeared to be a Yankee stronghold in AnnapoHs. A pleasing personality and generous nature won the affection of his classmates, and he forged ahead in extra-curricular activities as he had previously done in academics by being chosen battalion chairman of the Reception Committee. A basic Southern nature is illustrated when he suggests relaxation as his favorite hobby, but Si ' s work on plebe track and soccer squads, the Lucky Bag staff and battalion golf and football attest to the restlessness of his spirit. ■fe j ; A4 W Jc JOHN WILLIAM SINCAVICH Bridgeport, Ohio locundity to the n ' th degree — that ' s Siny thru and thru. A born jitterbug, he amazed us not only with his dance steps, but also with his variety of fancy dives in the natatorium. A year of college helped him to beat the system, and gave him plenty of time for his favorite sport, swimming. Whenever anything strange, tricky, or difficult came along, from a new dive to a new line, Siny was the man to try it. Confining his snaking to one coast at a time, he only dragged every other week, but the gals weren ' t any happier to see him than we were, and we are glad he came in with ' 43. ;:L« ...e ■A CO y yC H,ceuM e4i :%M- JVC2. ,1 7 HARRY CLYDE SIPE, JR. ,(- , Wichita, Kansas iViakc the most of your opportunities. " So said Harry, and he practiced what he preached. So short he was just about a fifth platooner, but wound plenty tight with energy, drive, and purpose to get the most of what the academy had to offer in athletics, studies, aptitude for the service, and stripes. Hard work gave him a good class standing. Dancing, sweet music, and bite-size women his pastime. Swimming, soccer, and lacrosse were his big sports. His ambition is a post-graduate course in engineering at MIT, and then in the Navy a lifetime of hard work and advancement in aeronautical research. WINFIELD SCOTT SLOCUM, HI J-, Painesville, Ohio Ocott comes from Painesville, Ohio and was among the first of ' 43 to enter the academy. He spent a year of Junior College at Culver Military Academy and one at Cochran-Bryan Preparatory School. Plebe summer he played basketball and tennis and continued these sports plebe year. He played B squad basketball youngster year and was on the varsity tennis squad. During his few spare moments you could find him either writing letters, reading, or sleeping. He dragged occasionally and spent what leave he had at home swimming, dancing, or ice skating. Here is hoping that the future holds a continuance of a personal friendship with such a swell shipmate. GEORGE EDWARD SLONE . Marion, Indiana Hoosier from Old Purdue, " Archie " brought with him a love for the great outdoors and an excellence in archery and small arms. His energy and thoroughness knew no limits in his complete mastery of his subjects of interest. His tenacity of purpose and perseverance won both our admiration and respect. Often seen with the fairer sex, among whom he was a favorite, George coupled a love of dancing with an irresistible charm to make him a favorite dragging com- panion. A sympathetic roommate, a considerate upperclassman, and a keen dis- cerner of the truth, he will be an officer desired as a shipmate and sought as a leader. ROBERT GOOD SMITH ,.-p, Belfry, Kentucky 1 he cry " How about a fourth for bridge " seldom went unanswered, if Smitty was within earshot. Or if a partner was needed for a tennis game, hand- ball, or a fast hand of poker, Bob was always ready to oblige. His more serious dealings with athletics were confined to battalion wrestling, and each year, he groaned successfully with the best of them. In spare moments, Smitty could always be found catching up on the latest hterature. When did he study? Well, Dago ended youngster year and with it Bob ' s academic troubles. His was the enviable abihty to pick up a book and lay it down again in one motion, having seen enough for a 3.2. ' MS J « VOorJiu S 4 Xtf i il ?-i £. " • . CS KiiJU P ' L y MrutL» THOMAS JACKSON SMITH • Richmond, Kentucky i .lthough Tom left the blue grass with regrets, he carved a per- manent niche for himself at the academy. As a plebe he played football and then later battalion lacrosse and wrestling. His last winter was spent on the varsity wrestling team. During odd seasons, T.J. either played tennis, golf or worked out in the canteen. Plebe math had him worried, but from then on things went well. With a suave southern manner and a witty remark for most any occasion, he was always in demand at the hops, in the stag line or on the dance floor. Those who knew Tom liked and respected him and were proud to introduce him as a classmate. Ir GEORGE EDGAR SPAULDING Toledo, Ohio Ln our three years at the academy, George helped many of us stay sat — those pretty little stars proved that he got this stuff pretty well but he was always the last to admit it. He is, doubtless, a better bridge player than swimmer, yet our hats are off to him for his steady plugging along toward a sub squad promotion. No " N stars " on his bathrobe, but the gym recognized him as an old friend. He always did satisfactorily in dragging and never found himself in want of friends or companions. We all wish him the best of luck and agree that he will make a fine shipmate anywhere. Ca ROGER ELMORE SPREEN Sidney, Ohio carefree, ready for anything, yet industrious, sincere, and de- pendable when duty calls, that was Rog. From the first he was well-Hked by all and a ready companion or teammate for anything. Socially, the Reception Committee or dragging filled in the weekends, while, during the week, tennis, basketball, touch football or baseball for Navy or the dear old fourth battalion occupied his spare time. On the tennis courts, his steady, sure game earned for him his " N " and the captaincy of the team. Rog ' s winning ways always made and will continue to make for him many fast and true friends either afloat or ashore. RALPH MARTIN STAIR RKnoxville, Tennessee alph was one of those typical southern boys, who happened to be born with a decidedly individualistic sense of humor. This humor was usually expressed under three classifications: fair, bad, and terrible puns. One apropos classic was " Hair today, goon tomorrow. " Ralph was busy in extra-curricular work, mainly as Company Representative. In the afternoons basketball, Softball, and lacrosse, plus an occasional sail, were his diversions. A real index of his love life was the heavy correspondance program he carried out. Ralph was a true friend and has been a swefl roommate. Here ' s hoping we can continue as shipmates. ' yt Uru TS CjLojdu .J cutiuj CHARLES EUGENE STASTNY _, Crete, Nebraska r rom those cowpunching days out in Nebraska Charlie learned to outpunch the best in the ring and to tie a victim into any knot on the wrestling mat. He also demonstrated his football and Softball ability by playing three years on the Fourth BattaUon teams. Along " salty " Hues, he joined the Boat Club and sailed in company races. When not helping the Reception Committee or dragging, Chuck was busy on weekends studying. Unselfish, cheerful, and friendly describe his aptitude as a roommate. With Charlie ' s common sense and pleasing personality, he is sure to have a happy and successful career. M ' jz ' e 7 Xujdz c ROBERT WESLEY STECHER . Dodge, Nebraska j . rigorous life as a Navy Junior made easy for Steck the adjustment to academy life so hard for most of us. Forced to spent the better part of plebe year in the hospital, Bob had the audacity to take delayed exams and emerge with his stars. Bob worked with the Spanish Club and the Quarterdeck Society; wrote occasionally for the Log, and won his numeral in fencing. Possessing an un- canny ability to see things quickly and explain them logically, Steck gave generously of his time to those needing assistance. Particularly fond of classical music, Bob left a large portion of his monthly insults with the disc merchants on Robber ' s Row. " T. GEORGE WILLIAM STIVERS Piedmont, Missouri i o George, Piedmont and paradise are synonymous and either presents an adequate description of his home in Missouri. He came to the Naval Academy a very happy-go-lucky individual with the predominant characteristic of making everyone his friend. His good nature and affable character were un- marked by the " system. " His name will be legendary on the extra duty field and his technique of indifference to studious effort was envied by all who worship the god of 2.5. To the cause of sports George has devoted much time and one of his favorite front teeth. Basketball and baseball were his major interests. REUBEN EMIL STRELOW Wittenberg, Wisconsin iJutch wasn ' t very free with his thoughts, and it was hard to predict what his reactions would be, but we were sure that whatever course he followed would be well thought out and followed with assurance. On the other hand, if you wanted to see the opposite of conservatism, Dutch was your man when he was out for a good time. There wasn ' t anyone who enjoyed a good bull session, or the companionship of the opposite sex more than Dutch. Swimming, track, and reading took up most of his afternoons. As long as the Navy is in need of thinkers and good, dependable men, Dutch will make out well. : :A JOHN MILTON SWEENEY j Breckenridge, Texas llow Jack managed to stand near the top in almost every class with a minimum of studying will ever be a mystery. Perhaps he got the secret from his alma mater, the University of Texas. Although his entrance into the Naval Academy radically changed his plans to become a sportswriter, Jack missed few major sporting events at the academy. He tried a few sports himself, but, not being of varsity caliber, contented himself with being one of the mainstays of the cham- pionship company Softball team. His partiality for Texas girls slowed his dragging efforts somewhat, but he was usually there when the band started playing. T FRANK SWINT Nashville, Tennessee he " Reverend " came from the hills of Tennessee, choosing a Naval career over the life of a minister. He arrived full of ambition and, despite finding himself on the tree more than occasionally, his spirit was not dampened a little bit. " Old Swink " exhausted his athletic abilities in the pursuit of swimming. He never quite caught up with it, and the sub squad was his favorite pastime. On the average, Frank dragged about three times a year, but when he did it was really something. Another thing peculiar to most southerners was also his — there was no place like Dixie. However, " a more amiable rebel there never was. " BERNARD ANDREW THIELGES r -i Bowman, North Dakota i he " Tiger " is not a ferocious animal except in one respect. He ' d sneak off to his " B " den in the evening and emerge with a wild look in his eye around taps with a howl " Gosh, it ' s tough! " Nordakota, as he calls it, claims him. He never tires of stories of hunting and fishing and once almost enticed his city- bred wives into a week of roughing it. Here his hunting has been confined to the female of the species. So far the results are indecisive, but we have complete con- fidence in " Little Punchy. " His dormant talents in basketball were awakened second class year — successfully. Tiger is regular guy — to all a real shipmate. FRANK LINCOLN THOMAS, JR. „ College Station, Texas r rank came to the academy from Texas A. M., and like all true Texans he was inordinately proud of his home state, reciting her praises for hours. Also in keeping with being a Texan he liked to shoot everything from a 14 incher to a .45. Being good natured, quiet, and easy-going, he managed, somehow, to stand around the middle of his class. His interest in athletics never got far beyond the theoretical stage for his time was spent in avidly pursuing various hobbies such as photography, dragging (usually blind), and telling those tali tales in true Texan style. He will make a competent Naval officer and a fine shipmate. ( Jl . M ( C r£ r ' GARDNER THOMAS, JR. it ,, Marion, Indiana VT pulled in from the foothills of Indiana about three years ago and earnestly settled down for a day or two of diligent study. Flaming locks and freckles just don ' t combine with academics so " Red " quickly sought diversion in wrestling, golf, billiards, snaking, and buying jitterbug records. He is probably tops in the academy as far as the cue and chalk are concerned. " G ' s " famous crack through the years was, " I just don ' t let this place get me down. " Smiling at occasional academic scares here and there and more than his share of fraps, " G " was strictly a whiz in infantry before he got out. True to his code, he didn ' t let the system get the best of him, and the ship that gets the genial red-head will be lucky. BERT ALVIN THOMPSON y COFFEYVILLE, KaNSAS Ury Kansas has its Landon and Willkie but when mention is made of good Kansas Republicans, " Tommie " must not be left out. Besides being a rabid Republican, Tommie played a bang-up game of soccer and lacrosse, and, to complete his versatility, he could triple-tongue a cornet with the best of them. Academics worried the Kansan very Httle, yet he never failed to consider his studies number one among his interests even if Amazing Stories did run a close second. When the judgment day comes around, you can bank on Tommie getting a share of his due reward for hard work and fair play — he will have earned it. RAYMOND CHAUNCEY TOLERTON, JR. • Springfield, Missouri ixlthough " Tol " has lived in California and Texas, his thoughts are ever trailing back to Springfield, Missouri. After two years at Severn, he entered the academy, where he has proved himself a credit to his home state and is well liked by everyone. If you would like to have a real good game of squash or would like to hear some of the best swing records, come around and see Tol. Being an unwavering believer in quality before quantity, his hobbies are few, his principal interests being mid-western women and dragging. With his determina- tion and natural ability success is definitely within his reach. VIRGIL HAROLD TRAXLER, JR. Butler, Ohio 1 rax was so affected by a two year sojourn in California that he set upon his career i8o degrees out of phase. He joined the Army and prepped at the Presidio with the aim of entering West Point. As always, Trax soon set himself aright and obtained a senatorial appointment to the Country Club. He has always managed to take Academics in stride and found plenty of time for his beloved squash, chess, and letter-writing. His easy-going disposition and natural ability to mix with the fellows has given him a large circle of friends, and will make him the ideal wardroom companion. Trax is the fellow you ' ll want on the bridge when the going gets rough. ;? o W y . ( .

His trans- plantation to the shores of the Chesapeake caused no curtailment of his tastes for swing music and pretty girls. Boxing season found him answering the call for managers, while battalion tennis filled the spring afternoons. Idle hours were spent building model airplanes and playing bridge when a fourth was to be found. A wide variety of interests, a ready wit, and a disposition as sunny as his native Texas made him an ever popular companion. His primary interest was aviation, and it is to that branch of the service that he hopes eventua lly to belong. MYRON EARL TREMAIN . Columbus, Ohio £ . son of the middlewest, Mike came to the academy from the campus of Ohio State. From the first day of " plebe summer " Mike ' s easy smile and unruffled good humor won him friends. Proof of his popularity is the fact that his classmates elected him as their representative on the Ring and Hop Committees, the two most important committees upon which a midshipman may serve. A conscientious student during the week, his weekends were spent acting on the Recep- tion Committee, giving vent to the photography bug, and more often than not, dragging. A swell wife, a swell shipmate — here ' s to clear sailing, Mike. EARL FRANKLIN TUHEY i(yj MuNciE, Indiana Jnlock " came to the Naval Academy via Purdue and Ball State Universities. A true son of the Hoosier state, Earl Franklin was an athlete par excellence, but, frankly, he never successfully diverted his energies into the field of academics. Earl starred in varsity baseball and basketball. These sports, how- ever, scarcely show the extent of his athletic ability; he could compete with the best in golf, tennis, and swimming as well. His native wit, sense of humor, and en- gaging personality always made him a welcome addition to a " bull session " or a bridge game. Earl ' s distinctive character will ever make him a welcome shipmate. Lit XM Ki- ' t CHARLES WEDGWOOD TURNER Malvern, Arkansas iittle did the Naval Academy know what it was in for when Charlie traded his jug of Arkansas moonshine for a Springfield rifle and came to Annapolis. Though not a great athlete, Carlos was plentifully endowed with a high standard of good sportsmanship and never a dull moment was to be had when he was included in a little get-together. Spending much of his time at studies. Chuck, nevertheless, could always find a moment to build a model, draw a football poster, or play a quick hand of bridge with the boys. His ability to work hard and play hard not only made a multitude of friends for him but made him an ideal roommate as well. LOUIS " K " TUTTLE, JR. rj Wharton, Texas J. exans, like monkeys, are peculiar people. Why so many of them leave their beloved state to join the Navy is one of the deep mysteries of life. They never stop talking about Texas and its wonders; yet they can point out that half the present admirals came from Texas and the next half will undoubtedly come from there — presumably meaning themselves. They seem to take kindly to study and academics — many star men and stripers. Somehow the academy does accomplish a transition from their cowboy boots and bowed legs to Navy officers in the finest sense. Yes, " Tut " is one of them. LAWRENCE VANCE VAN LAANEN « J Iron Mountain, Michigan V an " was one of the few men at the academy who consistently refused to do things conventionally. It must have been his eternal desire to inflict self-punishment that made him shave before reveille, refuse candy simply because he liked it, and derive his own mathematical formulae. He was convenient to have around because of his abundant supply of soap, razor blades, shoe polish, and other necessities of life. His greatest joy seemed to be in watching us suffer from his puns — too frequently, bad puns! Yes, Helen, his O.A.O., has a distinctive fellow on her hands, but, as she knows, a mighty good man. HARPER ELLIOT VAN NESS, JR. -iTTj Abilene, Texas W e found " Smiling Jack " in our room one bright sunny day at the end of youngster leave. Tall and slim, he supported Texas as only an adopted son can. Never much in danger of the Academic Board, he spent many hours delving into his private library and the most recent issue of Time. Most battalion sports counted him a charter member. He would have been a perfect roommate if he had only played bridge so we wouldn ' t always have had to pursue a fourth. As for his way with the women, all we know is that every Saturday found him either dragging or slagging, depending on finances only. He likes the Navy; it will like him. RICHARD HENRY WALKER ,-p, Pierre, South Dakota i all, handsome, and easy-going — from South Dakota came Dick to carve himself a Naval career. Academics were " fruit " for him so he turned his energies elsewhere. Boat Clubbing, working for the Reception Committee, and editing first and second class years in the Lucky Bag furnished considerable diver- sion, but fencing was his forte as witnessed by the " N " gracing his bathrobe. A true epicurean, Dick firmly believed in a weekend every week, and still found time along the line to build model trains. Dick was a fine wife, and success and good fellowship are bound to follow him throughout the fleet. U4 Om. I vcLq. , K.

Gus tried just about every sport there was, but he could usually be found sailing the yawls, playing handball, or reclining on his bunk with the latest copy oi Popular Aviation. He was an ardent lover of aviation and there wasn ' t a plane made that Gus couldn ' t tell about in detail and fully discuss its merits. Undoubtedly Gus will go far in the Navy — as far as Pensacola at least. JOSEPH DAVID WATSON ,-p San Antonio, Texas 1 he naval bases at San Diego and Norfolk, and the good ship Tuscaloosa were all a part of Dave ' s nautical training before he entered the academy. A vast knowledge of fleet life branded this true Texan as " Salty " Watson. Dave has consistently been a star student, and was always ready to help a classmate in distress. His election as a company representative youngster year was a recognition of his leadership ability. Baseball has always been Salty ' s favorite sport, and Texas girls his ideal drags. A true love for the sea and a firm redoubt of professional skill will carry him to greater heights as an officer. ELLIOT MEEKER WEART -.

" In the spring his fancy turned to basketball, boats, and the tennis courts. Never too much of a snake, he dreamt of the unparalleled hunting and fishing found on fleeting leaves spent in his adopted Minnesota homeland. Even so, he always seemed to find plenty of time for Baltimore Belles. Academics, except for a brief misunderstanding with plebe steam, and a reserve Ensign juice professor from Minnesota, never were much of a bother. No stars, but also no trips before the Academic Board. .- J i..e MERLE EUGENE WEEDLUN -p-, Minden, Nebraska r rom the rolling plains of the most inland of the states came this congenial Swede to fulfill a lifelong ambition to see salt water , a ship, and the Naval Academy. Once here, all met with his approval and he began his naval career. Participation in battalion football, track, basketball, singing in the choir, and constant attendance at all the hops made his life at the academy a pleasant and well-rounded one. Constant but unnecessary fear of bilging resulted in Swede ' s maintenance of a creditable academic standing.

His favorite avocations were amateur radio, dancing, and leave ( Amapola) . To know John was to like him. No enemies, no grease, and no cigarettes, he was a good shipmate and a steadfast friend.

Never too busy to take on just one more activity, he made his " N " in lacrosse and was actively interested in the Boat Club, the Movie Gang, and the Model Club. A seemingly unlimited capacity of energy will go far toward insuring Easy ' s success in the fleet. DANIEL WILLIAM WILDFONG -P St. Louis, Missouri Uan hails from Missouri but he is not the skeptic one might expect — in fact, quite the opposite. While yet a mere babe, Dan ' l decided to become a Naval officer. The Naval Academy, recognizing a good prospect, signed him on before he had a chance to lose his Navy fever. Academics at the academy broadened his mind; his stellar work on the gym team broadened his back and biceps. Came graduation time, Danny was a well-rounded and well-balanced young officer. A charter member of the St. Louis Navy Boosters Club, his insatiable interest in the Navy and all things nautical will make him a welcome shipmate and a competent officer. ROBERT JEWELL WILLIAMS Little Rock, Arkansas V harm is the word applicable to the friendly manner with which Bob won his many friends at the academy. That charm also works with the queens was evidenced by his frequent 4.0 drags. Boxing, tennis, and volleyball were Bob ' s sports, and when he wasn ' t actively participating he was proudly and successfully managing the boxing team. After occasional successful bouts with the Academic departments, he might confess that he was just " too ornery to bilge.

Although his previous sailing was confined to paper boats in the bathtub, he showed him- self to be an ardent sailor on the Severn. When not sailing, he could usually be found curled around a Cosmo or a Post. Tom may not be the traditional sailor with a girl in every port, but he has one back home that keeps him just as busy and interested.

His bits of wisdom at such gatherings went more or less unheeded, but the spirit was willing. Nothing fazed him; adversities came as just one of those things that have to happen — a necessary evil — and that was all there was to it. With his imagination, judgment, and even disposition, he will be a welcome addition to any wardroom. Wi ROGER JAMES WOMELDORF Decorah, Iowa hen Roger graduated from high school out in Iowa, he decided that he had had enough education and he enlisted in the Navy. After a year at sea, he entered the Naval Academy in search of more education. Crew was his year round sport, and he stroked with the best of them. Although he always considered studying and dragging secondary to crew, he never stood below the middle of his class, and he was never shy with the ladies. He liked bock beer, old time music, and his countless friends. His ambition is to raise three Marine Juniors, and we may feel sure that he will, for his determination won nine-tenths of his battles.

From the beginning the " Koop " felt that studies were just a necessary evil, and consequently he wasn ' t bothered with stars on his collar. Dave ' s greatest love was golf, but the same trick shoulder that forced him to quit football lost him his place on the golf team. We couldn ' t help liking Wynkoop even though his blunt remarks continually deflated our ego. He was a steady fellow who liked to see things done thoroughly and efficiently, and we look for Dave to get to the top in any field that he chooses. MAURY FONTAINE YERGER, JR. -w-rj ViCKSBURG, MISSISSIPPI W ith a backward glance at Mississippi State and Kappa Alpha, the " Little Un " invaded the U.S. Naval Academy, planted himself firmly, and then defied the world to move him. Taking all challengers, he quickly disposed of academics and moved into the boxing ring. Here his success was even more pro- nounced, being undefeated when intercollegiate boxing was discontinued. He seldom dragged but was always in love, remaining true to that sweet girl back home. At the academy he greatly missed the country club and the night clubs at home; but he will always have them for he is ever to be associated with the elite. uj -c y ci t u-t j .,, ., a i.vui!i 9 2W HERBERT ERNEST LOUIS ZASTROW -J-, Lakemills, Wisconsin P rom the nation ' s dairyland and recently the leathernecks, Herb joined the Navy. He learned the system before the greater part of the new blood, then discovered studying was no great task for him. During these years he lived nearer the stars than the trees, and accordingly found time to enjoy life. For the most part he just took things easy, but about once a year he limited his activities. During plebe year and second class year he played battalion football. His true love, however, was outdoor rifle in which sport, he felt quite natural. Three years in the Navy still didn ' t make him a sailor though — once a marine always a marine. Ar ALEXANDER PHILIP ZECHELLA Newport, Kentucky Ln easy going Kentuckian, Zeke was an advocate of the live and let live policy — but not on the gridiron! Football — and Jean — was his first love, but out of season he had three years of battalion track, one of battalion wrestling, some ketching and a Lucky Bag job to his credit. An outstanding plebe back, he was dogged by injuries the next two years. In spite of hard luck, he came back strong to make the powerful number two backfield and play three quarters against Army for that coveted " N . " Many opponents will remember him as one of the hardest hitting guys they ever met, and his teammates, as a really sincere friend. JOSEPH SPENCE ZEIGLER r-p, Talladega, Alabama J. o know " Zeig " is to know a true gentleman of the South, well- bred, refined, and considerate. Although a versatile athlete, a soft bed caused a lack of demonstrations. He did rise long enough to " swat ' em out " on the diamond plebe summer and " crash the line " for the Fighting Fourth Battalion second class and youngster years. The deluge of letters and his locker door spoke for themselves concerning the fairer sex. A dash of quick cooling temper made him a marvel at defending the wrong side of an argument. His broad smile, ready friendship, and willingness will make his every goal easily attained. ROBERT JOSEPH ZOELLER .pj New Albany, Indiana JJeing one of that happy throng known as savvy. Bob soon found that his natural ability and intelligence were made to order for the Naval Academy. The essence of understanding coupled with his cheerfulness soon stamped Zell as an outstanding leader. Without a worry for the next day, from the start he has been carefree. He could put up a good debate with anybody except his father who knew all the angles, having turned out three star athletes before Bob came along. And Bob was a star athlete, for he was a stellar end on a winning football team, a varsity basketball player and captain of the team first class year. c tl£ sm. JNOl AJLLj Or Uo who joined the Class of ' 43 stayed with us to that one broad stripe. Many fell at the end of plebe year, the casualty list mounted at the end of youngster year and a very few left us when the course was almost run. Reasons were varied and diverse: academic tangles, physical disabilities, civilian leanings.... Many went into civilian occupations, some were drafted, others became flyers and a few volunteered for foreign military service. Some left us early, many stayed for a long while, but none will be forgotten.

Science called him miraculous, but his parents called him Claude. Before his discovery he was known simply as Claude " the Tireless. " Never angry at anyone but himself, he was perpetually in action — Boat Club, the Log, Rifle Squad, photography; always ready to sing, to laugh, or to give a lift. To the casual observer, he was a ladies ' man. Actually, he was one woman ' s man. Someday, somewhere, when the seas are heavy, and the word is " Enemy Sighted, " someone will be amazed at Claude — confident, calm, defiant and determined, all that he should be — and more. ROBERT NELSON ADRIAN -pj Ontario, Oregon Jjob was one of the first men to enter our class and for many of us he was the first man we became acquainted with. This proved to be one of his outstanding qualities, for he became famous for his good nature and ability to make friends. Always cheerful and able to smile. Bob was willing to lend anyone a helping hand. In football, baseball, and crew he distinguished himself with his capability, cooperation, and hard work. Although not a star man, his conscien- tious effort and common sense were assets in all his classes, and these same qualities will make him a successful officer and a well-loved shipmate. JAMES CURWOOD ALLER y Yakima, Washington J im spent the first year and half in the pleasant security of a two- man room. With ' 41 safely gone, however, he moved into a four-man suite. There he acquired new roommates, a new nickname, and the desire to be strong, healthy, and happy. He became happy at any rate when an early leave enabled him to enjoy both the beauties of Washington State and the joys of skiing at the same time. A star man, Jim. has had small success at athletics although he tried hard at several. A good roommate, we feel sure that he will be a good shipmate and wish him lots of luck in his chosen ambition. RAYMOND LOUIS ANGELO, JR. -Pj San Jose, California Jtvay came to Annapolis leaving behind an enviable scholastic record and two broken hearts. He continued his good work here by standing high in his class, and his many letters indicate that his absence has made those hearts grow fonder. A variety of sports occupied Ray ' s spare time — among them battalion football, wrestling, soccer, and company softball. Any Saturday afternoon you could have seen him at one of the local jive dealers in an intensive search for more and moreB. G. recordings. His love of fun and a widespread interest, coupled with a firm ambition, insure his life to be interesting and profitable. j! ; tu Cuc 3 A.

Enthusiastic about and interested in anything and everything, he leaves no idle moments in his spare time what with active memberships in the French and Math Clubs and a hold on key positions on the Log and Trident staffs. Plebe year offered sailing, lacrosse, and the Quarterdeck Society, and he has developed into a competent and dependable skipper of the academy ' s big boats. With a better than average Navy background, Vic is equally steady on a tossing deck, a polished dance floor, or in a squash court.

His days at the Naval Academy were full and enjoyable. AbiHty in track, swimming, soccer, et al., made his after- noons busy ones and a genuine appreciation of all kinds of music coupled with an active interest in the NA-io rounded out the cultural side of his existence.

However, under this veneer of sobriety was a smoldering fire, for who could spring from the wilds of Butte and be as reserved as Dan? Always interested in games of chance, he spent his time outwitting the academic board by keeping " sat. " In his spare time he gave his company a boost by putting out a " max " in baseball and pistol. Dan was a voracious reader and an authority on the printed word — excluding, of course, all things remotely related to texts. He must have been a " juice savoir " since all the lads who knew him called him " Hysteresis. " LAUGHLIN BARKER j Santa Fe, New Mexico W hen in the course of human events it became necessary for four men to live together, the three who lived with Bark were supremely lucky. Plebe year he became a football manager, and was one of the two elected Second Class managers. He had a sailing ability which was proof of a strong affinity and aptitude for the sea. He was the one who explained chemistry to us plebe year and, as a member of the Radio Club, reduced Juice to the realms of an attainable subject. His dragging record was enviable — all hits, no errors, May we soon be shipmates with Bark again. Good luck, and a fair wind! .

Jack is a gay, sociable companion, as well as a serious worker, which is evidenced by his extra-curricular activities from lacrosse and the social requirements with the Hop Committee to the weighty load of Lucky Bag Business Manager. In the midst of his busy life, however. Jack found time for relaxation in frequent bunk drills. He also took a very active part in the hops which he helped plan and arrange. His initiative and thoroughness will carry him through any task and make him a man always worthy of the name " Shipmate. " HERBERT LESTER BASLEE, JR. Mill Valley, California Oomebody was always running Herb about something, but this big eared, big voiced Californian from Mill Valley either drowned them out or laughed them off. Herb did a lot of everything. He made numerals in plebe swimming and battalion boxing. For three years, his big bass was added enthusiastically to football games, the choir, the Masqueraders, and the Glee Club. First class year he was leader of the Glee Club and what he lacked in experience he made up for in hard work and enthusiasm. His many interests blossomed out in his favorite pastimes — tennis, swimming, singing, California, San Francisco, and the far west. J= JACK LINCOLN BECKER HoNOMu, Hawaii lack crossed the Pacific and the continent to study the Navy way, and emerged from the maze of academics and athletics wearing the leis of his homeland. Half-inch cigarette stubs, disputed P-works, gold letters in boxing and track, bruises from football and I.O.U. ' s from his roommates — these are our remembrances. Jack seldom left a moment unoccupied, did a man ' s job a man ' s way and every job the right way. The thoughtfulness with which he regarded his friends, and his sincerity in his work and play gave us a fine classmate and will give us a true shipmate. The best of luck in the fleet. Jack. JOHN HENRY BEHL -rj, Long Beach, California JL rom the surf and salt air of Long Beach Johnny came to brighten the academy with his flashing smile and engaging manner. An ardent sportsman, he was an " ace " in handball, swimming, and tennis, but in his spare moments we could always find him in the canteen. We found in him the real spirit of the sailor as he was always ready to enter any new adventure that might increase his knowledge of the sea. He worked hard in his studies, stood high in his class, and was willing to aid his classmates. This spirit of cooperation, added to his ready wit and good humor made him an ideal shipmate and should insure him an eventful career. ♦ ta(r-n- ' Pk r UK o !S.o (S. zc ' a. lBoc y ' Jlr MORGAN LEWIS BRETT, JR. -J-, Palo Alto, California rrom the Santa Clara Valley and Stanford this " Army Brat " came to join us at Annapolis. Happy in the Sierras or with classical music, Sooby was the quiet type, except when he broke forth whistling some favorite theme. When free from extra-duty, his extra-curricular activities included afternoons of battalion tennis and evenings with the sound unit concerts. Occupied thus, he preferred to buy record albums with his spare cash, rather than to drag — excepting a chosen few. Beneath a quiet nature lies a sense of humor and an appreciation of the finer things of life, giving Sooby a personality well liked by all who know him.

Plebe summer he started managing the oarsmen and never altered his course; result, " N. " If Maryland had trout streams, his only other activity would have been fishing; but Nature forced him to substitute sailing, bowling, stamp collecting, or just plain bunk drill. One of the last of the Red Mikes to succumb, he still got his quota of mail and locker-door pictures. Studies came easy so he devoted his time to giving unofficial extra instruction, or arguing the countles s merits of California to a midwestern wife. WILLIAM SERGEANT BUSIK „ Pasadena, California rSill always did his job well. He was open-minded, conscientious, and hard-working — characteristics that would not let him fail whether his task was academic, athletic, or just plain " getting along. " Bill ' s record was impressive, his attitude modest. He was likable, understanding, and friendly, characteristics which spontaneously attracted people and made him a true pal to them all. Bill ' s record in football, basketball and track is too lengthy to be done justice here — reference: Sport Section. Besides he was class vice president and did a creditable job. Bill will get a lot out of life and the bargain will be fair to both sides. WILLIAM FREDERICK CAMPBELL ( _ San Marino, California I ' ve got mine and your ' s too; how are you doing? " With this motto " Soupy " breezed in with a bunch of boys from sunny California. A sandblower in stature, his height was no indication of the magnitude of his personality. His extra-curricular activities brought him numerals as a football manager, and as a member of the Stamp Club he increased even more his vast multitude of friends. As a " snake, " " Soupy " could not be surpassed.

He bowls a sHghtly worse game than I do, he had the good grace not to try to sing very often, and he did drag good looking girls. He had his faults though. He played classical music much too early in the morning, and he tried to coax me into the swimming pool a little too often. His career in the academy was a constant struggle to do anything to keep from studying. He even used evening study hour to project a few Kodachromc slides, and then objected when I invited the Officer of the Watch in to see them. ALFRED ANTHONY CHERBAK y Alta Loma, California iJear Al: Remember the day we met? You were fresh from your ranch in sunny California. The East was new to you — small and crowded — and you never did get used to Maryland ' s weather. If you weren ' t playing soccer, I could always find you on your bunk or writing a letter. It always did pain me to see how promptly they were answered, too. Dragging made your weekends pleasant. Your good looks, expert dancing and genial personality made you quite a " snake " with the women. I guess you ' re still 4.0 on that count. Your interest and your practical ability in mechanics will keep you on top. Good luck. HOWARD EMERSON CLARK ■U Vallejo, California rdowie, an illustrious Navy Junior who came to us after two years in the fleet, made a friend of everyone with whom he came in contact. He won a high place in the regiment with his ready smile and flashing football cleats. His circle of friends extends well beyond the Navy, too — especially along the feminine line. We saw him at all the hops and other activities and thrilled at watching him perform on the gridiron. His sense of duty and fair-play will take him far in the Navy — the submarine service will soon gain an officer and wardroom companion of whom it may well be proud.

His carefree manner kept him in a continuous series of minor troubles plebe year, many of which were quite humorous indeed. However, youngster year " Romance, " who always claimed that his nicknames were misleading, found the hops with their smiling beauties far too important to risk such troubles. This carefree lad was naturally little disposed to study.

Besides dragging Jim found time for plebe soccer, wrestling, lacrosse, and varsity lacrosse. He got by on his studying too.

Aside from a never-ending tirade on the merits of his podunk, he played a wicked game of baseball, and was a varsity swimmer. His real accomplishment, however, was committee yarn teller. You just had to hear, " Now when I was ... " and you knew you were in for a good one. Academics never worried him nearly as much as the queen for the coming weekend. His brain children, produced with the Juice Gang, often enhanced the marque for the academy theatricals. When he gets that ranch on the Rio Grande the Navy may lose him. DALE WILLIAM COX, JR.

Forever anxious to help and sincerely agreeable. Dale was a prince of a wife. Excelling in rope-climbing and track, not to mention countless hours of work on the Lucky Bag, Log, and Christmas Card Committee, his activities were many and varied. But he was modest yet enthusiastic about them all. Dale was often seen in the company of young ladies, yet never admitted being a snake. However, Dale ' s real interest lies in " tall ships and a star to steer them by.

A good athlete, Ed spent his time at his best of sports — gym, where following certain primitive instincts he took to rope climbing, and from a look at the record didn ' t do bad either. When not hanging around the gym, Ed managed to always keep busy at a lively game of bridge or to demonstrate his ability as a sailor in one of the academy ' s small boats.

Activities were his glory — in athletics, it was swimming and softball; in extra-curricular work, it was tinkering with the Radio Club, ketching with the Boat Club, and welcoming with the Reception Committee. Yet he still found time for mastering Blackwood, buying " hep " records, dragging his O.A.O., and proving that such versatility can produce only the best shipmate. ARTHUR DHRCK, JR.

He read, discussed and practiced photography ad infinitum. Cameras were neat " jobs " and photos, good " shots.

If it wasn ' t for the Navy, Homer would have studied engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology, but he decided to show the world that you don ' t have to live on the seashore to make a good Naval officer. Studies were never too hard for Stub, and even though the Math department never thought too highly of him, we know better. Always ready to try anything, he went out for the battalion lacrosse and soccer teams and found that his abihty was very welcome. RICHARD GERARD DOWELL A Bremerton, Washington Navy Junior, Dick saw plenty of blue water before he entered the Naval Academy, and consequently this sea-faring life was a snap to him. Academics never bothered Dick excessively, allowing him time to pursue his hobbies and activities in earnest. With guns he excelled, winning medals for rifle, pistol and great guns marksmanship. After taking a fling at most of the sports at the academy, Dick found that soccer and boxing suited him best.

Bob would amuse himself reading Cosmopolitan, Weird Stories, and other works of culture, pausing intermittently to help the rest of us " buckets. " Whenever he felt the urge to exercise he would lie down until this feeling passed. He has a keen interest in photography, and his slides have entertained many. Among his activities were the Stage Gang, Reception Committee, Log, Photographic Club, and the Lucky Bag.

Youngster year he took up blind dragging, and after three 4.0 ' s in a row he gave it up to keep from spoiling a record. Gail was an enthusiastic member of the Boat Club and often made weekend ketch trips. On top of all his other activities, he played tennis for the plebes his first year.

" And so Jim embarked on his career. A claimant to residence in the Golden Bear state, Jim came into these gray portals from Lake Bluff, Illinois. The academy was just his style, for while here he sailed through all academic, extra-curricular, and a few of his own activities. Not lacking in athletic skill, Jim banged away with the best of them in lacrosse. One great distinction is his — that of maintaining one, and only one, picture on his locker door. It is not wasted breath to say that Jim will keep on in all lines in the " Great Outside " just as he has here. 1 GORDON CAMPBELL FACER „ Portland, Oregon Jjreaking his neck skiing down the sides of Mt. Hood wasn ' t exciting enough for Gordon, so he left the freedom of Reed College to be a salty sailor of the Severn. Maryland being what it is, he turned to soccer, swimming, and crew to keep his joints from rusting. Even with Cosmo, Gordon diverted enough of his efforts to academics to have his collar bedecked with stars. As for social companion- ship, Gordon always seemed to pick the fairest of the fair. The wardroom will be a great place with Butch as a shipmate — his Avit, personality, and general good- naturedness will liven up any ship he ' s piped aboard. MILES RUSH FINLEY, JR. „ San Diego, California r rom Southern California, Finn brought a ray of sunshine with his ever-present smile to brighten the three years we spent together. Although some- times battered and bruised, he always managed to emerge victorious from his bimonthly skirmishes with academics and keep a determined chin above the sur- face. Devoting his afternoons to exercise, he was a hard man to beat on the tennis court. It was inevitable that he turn to the sea to follow in the footsteps of his father. Three years at the academy proved him a valuable shipmate and a loyal friend which he will continue to be, from China to the North Atlantic.

In keeping with his plan of conserving energy, Len confined his free time to battalion teams, later to writing statements which foiled the Executive department. Such versatility enhances his value to us and to the service. DANIEL HERBERT FREEMAN J Cody, Wyoming If you can imagine a cowboy leaving his horse and saddle on the breezy plains of Wyoming for a pair of binoculars and a stadimeter on the rolling bridge of a battleship, you have in mind Dan Freeman. He never seemed surprised at anything, although he sometimes claimed that the mere fact of his remaining at the academy without bilging puzzled him now and then. That, of course, was pure modesty, for Dan has stood high in his class since plebe year. Dan ' s splendid work as crew manager for three years over at Hubbard Hall rated him a niche in 43 ' s hall of fame. A warm good humor has endeared Dan in our friendship. WILLIAM MARVIN GOODE -.J. San Diego, California Irlailing from San Diego, California, Bill took to the sea at an early age. Sailing before the mast in an old square -rigger put the love of the sea in his heart and many a salty tale on the tip of his tongue. Fiery red hair gave him a slight edge to an otherwise even disposition, and made him ever ready to engage in any altercation. When not engaged in an afternoon discussion, he could be found on the cinder path running the mile for Navy and his coveted " N. " Willie didn ' t need an act of Congress to make him officer material or a gentleman, and he will always be a welcome addition to the ship in which he serves. MARSHALL COLEMAN GREGORY £( San Diego, California Vjrreg " never made much of a splash while he was here. Perhaps too facile and quick for his own good at anything new, he dabbled with academics as well as tennis, rifle. Trident, Movie Gang, and the Sound Unit. He never had a home town, and doesn ' t know quite what it would be like. Somewhat self-conscious and reserved, he kept back quite a bit and stood to one side out of the rush. Never believed in getting excited about anything, and kept cool most of the time, except when the " Irish " came out. He can do pretty well if he tries and ought to get pretty far in the future. d t-ffyj olaA (A -ir x QOyyU ??- ' ' - i- ' 2 7t , u i 7JiMtdmin- (yot: (Z Vt U ( . y U4 U .. fC M - JAMES ARTHUR GRISWOLD Elko, Nevada r rom the " biggest little city in the world " to these four grey walls came " Gris, " the pride of Nevada. It was a long step for him to take; that of chang- ing skis to a deck under his feet. In his favorite hobbies, skating, skiing, and geology, (don ' t forget sleeping), one can easily see a strong tie to an early life in the Sierras. Although not known as a snake, he did quite well on the dance floor and rarely let a weekend be wasted, except when he was helping sail the Freedom. Jim demon- strated his athletic ability in battalion football, track, and baseball, never desiring to try out for the varsity. GEORGE GRKOVIC ,.y Salmon, Idaho 1 wo years of college at the University of Idaho taught Grk how to enjoy himself to the fullest, and he has never stopped having a good time. No doubt his amazing luck in dragging blind and the playful pranks of his roommates has done much to keep up his perpetual spirit at the academy. Always the last person to get started any place, but sure of getting there, he managed to get in his share of basketball, soccer, Softball, and handball. Grk ' s other major pursuits were dragging and breeze sessions. With his abihty to make friends, George is bound to get along in any company, in any committee, and in Uncle Sam ' s Navy. WARREN ARTHUR GROSSETTA, JR. n -, Tucson, Arizona Ouds " or " Injun, " call him what you like but he will always be known by his flashing smile and hearty laugh as a credit to any man ' s regiment and Navy. This reservation republican early established his prowess as a gridiron specialist and as no mean third baseman on the diamond. The above and battalion basketball were his sports. Women were his life. From Tucson to Philly the fan mail poured in. It irked his wives but he reveled in it. He said even in his sleep " You know who gets the mail. " We look for big things from this non-reg lad, and we are certain that he will not let us down. STEPHEN VINCENT HADLEY Los Angelos, California Ouperiority of California oranges, golden sunshine, a cabin in Ven- tura — ask Steve where life begins. He brought a love of aircraft with him and left a nurse behind. It won ' t be long before the fleet discovers what an eager aviation enthusiast it has. Every afternoon Steve grabbed his " woodburner " and a novel and chased senoritas up and down pages. Every study hour this letter writing cham- pion dreamed off to sunny California. There ' s a sense of humor behind that dead- pan and that cloud of smoke; but taking the Navy seriously has made him happy here. Just call him Napoleon. VkSL.riimi ' mm ' -w, ff Vtf J i c- ;di f ' ROBERT EARLE HAWTHORNE _ _ , At Large With the meat of efficiency hung on a frame of good principle, Bob used his head for more than just downing his academics. His red hair stood for all it imphed in spirit, initiative, and originality. A good student, he stood well up in his class, taking the three years in an easy stride. Bob was a good swimmer, having earned his numerals with the plebe and battalion squads. Athletically, his greatest interests were tennis and squash, and, considering time and interest, dragging was a major activity. Not an ordinary seaman, he has qualified in the Boat Club as a handler of practically anything that sails. LESLIE RICHMOND HESELTON, JR. ttj San Diego, California Joe " cannot remember a time when he had not planned to be a Naval officer and aviator: every course he followed before entering USNA was in preparation for a Naval career. That he stood well within the first one-tenth of his class is ample evidence his early study was not wasted. Les is a confusing mixture of damnyankee (born in Massachusetts), and vain westerner (coming from California as he does) tempered by his two years at Georgia Tech where the real groundwork of his career was laid. Pistol, swimming, and sailing took up " Joe ' s " extra time. Just crazy enough to be a good aviator, he hopes to make Pensacola soon. EDWIN NILES HITCHCOCK, JR. _ _ Laramie, Wyoming With a hot trumpet under his arm, " Wild Bill, " like Lochinvar of old, came roaring out of the West — this time to do or die for Navy. A confirmed " Jive Hound, " Bill ' s love of popular music was only equalled by his avid enthusiasm for dancing. When not in his room blazing away on his horn, or musing next to the juke box with a stack of records, he could usually be found in the gym at work with the battalion basketball squad. A firm believer and a devoted follower of the fine art of dragging, he was to be found at all the hops, for even when not escorting a drag of his own he went just to keep in trim. DAVID CHARLES HOLMES Spokane, Washington If you want a partner who will cheerfully trump your only ace or come through with " I ' m-sorry-but-I-wasn ' t-Hstening, what did you say, " see Dave. But if you ever want a lad who can write up your conduct statements with that little touch which means the vast difference between five hours extra duty and three, or if you have a genius for getting into a tight spot where it ' s time for tall talking or a little good action, why you too should see Dave. This ability for playing the cards smoothly and well when the going gets rough, plus a well rounded knowledge of almost everything makes Dave a good bet in anybody ' s race. S.V. cl. a e, H itW CARL OREAL HOLMQUIST -p, Salt Lake City, Utah r rom ' way out West — beyond the Mississippi, east of the Sierras — came " Quist " to wield an able hand at things nautical. Autumn of plebe year saw the Utahan backing up the battalion footballers. He was a gridiron warrior for the fighting Fourth and a member of the battalion lacrosse team in his last year. Carl also put in some work with the Log staff and, as a sidelight, had an an- nouncing job on the Press Gang. Carl was one of the best — amiable, sociable, with a leaning on the savvy side and a standing in that mythical first five in his class. A likable personality found expression in classroom, the Hall, and in the stag line or on the floor at the hops. ALLAN MACMILLAN HUDSON .J-, Carmel, California r rom the blue and gold of a sunlit California coast, armed with a background of the life he loved, and filled with the desire to know the ships that he had watched move out to the sea so many times, came a man who was to prove himself an individualist, a thinker, and a leader. His individuality carried on to his sports and he became an integral part of the rifle squad. With a constant purpose. Curly quickly sought out that which he wanted. The analytical minds of radio and machinery will not soon forget him, nor will many who carried battalion colors over the harrier ' s course. STANLEY KENNETH HUTCHIN SDuRANGO, Colorado tan, who was better known to his classmates as " Hutch-the-Snake, " spent the major portion of his three years here at the academy getting in and out of " heart " trouble. He always had several young ladies on the string, and how he kept these strings untangled none but he ever knew. As deadly with a gun as he is with the ladies, " Hutch " easily made both the plebe and varsity rifle teams all three years. In spite of the fact that he " bricked " his poor unsuspecting roommate time after time, he made a " 4.0 wife " and an all-weather friend. HAL ADAM KAUFFMAN -J-, Glendale, California r rom far off, dewy California, Hal came with a determination and the equipment to succeed. His underclass career was a constant effort to achieve this aim — although Hal never starred, he consistently stood well within the upper third of his class. In the meantime he engaged in three strenuous sports; football, track, and lacrosse. Hal more than made up for his inability to master jokes with his qualities of sportsmanship, good-fellowship, and fine open-minded generosity. With his will to learn, pleasant nature, and boundless energy, Hal is certain to go far in the Navy. cct yuy v au ttuXcAAyuO {UJu l0 TdJ ' WILLIAM BAXTER KIRKLAND, JR. ry-, Alameda, California X all and blonde, with a lively wit and full of entertaining tales, Kirk ' s energy and versatility have won for him a host of friends. Not an overly ambitious student he was content to learn his sea lore from practical experience, and this he has done quite admirably while a crew member on the academy yachts. Kirk has captained many enjoyable ketch trips, learned the fine points of handling large boats. As plebe striper, battalion footballer, class crest committeeman, sailor par excellent, he has shown an ability which coupled with his inborn love for the water promises big things for Kirk. Cv ROBERT ADIKES KIRTLAND At Large urly seemed to have been built for speed rather than comfort. Doing things in a big hurry and getting caught in the shower at formation did not help to slow him down. A beaming smile belied the serious side to which the stars on his collar bore witness, and he took a keen interest in world affairs, following it up by debating. Curly limited his athletics to sailing and occasional workouts to keep in trim. He sailed since plebe summer and was proficient in everything from dinghies to yachts. His love of the sea, able scholarship, and sunny disposition should carry him far in the attainment of his desires. w. LAWRENCE ARCHIE KURTZ, JR. San Diego, California e all recognized Larry ' s outstanding virtue, unyielding de- termination to succeed. He is the type who brings a ship through victorious on sheer courage. Maybe his unfortunate roommates did suffer a little because of his deliberate stubbornness, but a man who will someday be at the top must know his mind and stick to his convictions. A natural athlete, Larry never spent idle after- noons, for the parallel bars and tumbling mats held an irresistible attraction for him. One who appreciates the true values of life, good music, clean exercise, and an outdoor life, Larry is a man ' s man who cannot help but succeed. ROBERT BRUCE LAING tt . Spokane, Washington i .lways a freshman " was what Bob wailed as a plebe, after freshman years at Washington State and the University of Washington. This easy-going first platooner spent the fall playing football where he was a rugged tackle on the " B " squad. Most of his spare time was spent playing bridge or tennis, and thinking up money making schemes, but his real claim to fame was his day late arrival after " Sept " leave of second class year. Bob has always proven that he could hold his own with the ladies, and particularly one local lass. Nothing ever seemed to bother his jovial outlook on life or to change his valuable trait of taking things as they came. a Mff fi 11 laa»«B (v; " ' ! «S» «Si.X It o i tC tJ " - - (0.Q. O i t ' ty . .Jdx. JOHN MAURICE LEE -J-, Los Angeles, California Tresh from the breakers of the Pacific, " Junior " came to us a com- plete stranger to disciplined life. Always eager for any kind of argument, he found them plentiful, whether on the handball court, the bench of the battalion football team, with the Executive department, or with his never-convinced roommates. Academics were never easy for Lee until he entered this field of higher education. Here, he took them, as everything else, without loss of sleep. Not merely a confirmed bridge player, but a reckless gambler as well, Lee, alas, too frequently disregarded that fundamental law of dragging. Still, his ultimate success remains assured. RALPH GORDON LEEDY -t rj Brooks, Oregon W hen a man of ideas rises to his feet, calls for silence, and says " It sounds like a good deal to me, " the speaker can be none other than that indivi- dualist, " Seedy " Leedy. A Naval officer in the making — yes, but a politician as a finished product. His vivacity, sincerity, contagious smile, and self assurance made him capable of collecting more votes than a back slapping, hand-shaking governor-elect. " The Seed " mixed a brunette in here and there just to make business a pleasure. The acme of all his extra-curricular work was the designing of our class ring, which we all believe to be his best deal. Be BERNARD CHARLES LENNON San Francisco, California )enny won his numerals plebe year in soccer and baseball and youngster year he won a numeral in soccer, an " NA " in baseball. If he missed any practices it must have been because the bridge over Dorsey Creek was under more than 5 ' 7 " of water. Although he was never a misogynist, his policy toward the ladies youngster year was one of restrained wariness. Second class year however, he dragged to most of the hops. He took academics in his stride and even threw that department for a few definite losses. We knew him as one of those quiet chaps who can always be relied upon to do a job thoroughly with a minimum of noise and urging. JOHN HENRY LOBDELL JTacoma, Washington ohn, the " Tacoma kid, " arrived straight from Stadium High School. Wasn ' t he proud of his old alma mater and didn ' t we hear about the virtues of the Great Pacific Northwest! A star man he just didn ' t know how to be lazy. He pretended to be shy, but the girls knew it was a line. He was seen occasionally at Stamp Club meetings and made a tour of duty as varsity tennis manager. Long and lanky, al l legs, built like a spar mast, he was the plebe ' s friend. Navy Blue and Gold dominate this promising chap from stem to stern. John is the independent type upon whom others rely to solve the tough problems that arise from time to time. 1V, ti fe €Lt 7770. 0 , 0-y Be ROBERT CHARLES LOGAN San Francisco, California )ob was one of those fellows who cheered every time someone said, " California. " You would catch on soon if you knew what state the girl in that picture on his desk came from. When he was not dreaming about Frisco, Bob went out wholeheartedly for sports. He participated in battalion swimming and lacrosse; was a battalion crew man, youngster year, and was also good at tennis. Dragging and reading Cosmo took up the rest of his time. He was also a dago savoir and a member of the Spanish Club. We anticipate success for " Apple Cheeks, " and maybe some day you will hear Californians cheer when they hear his name. Wha NEAL MARTIN, JR. Pueblo, Colorado lat little water there is in Colorado is definitely not salty, but Uncle Neal became curious and came to the academy to investigate the matter. Not only did he find that the Navy was for him, but also since his initial journey, Neal has come to realize that men just weren ' t made to understand women. In a quiet unassuming manner, quite distinctive with him, Neal won innumerable friends. Neal claimed that the only athletic team he belonged to was the sub squad, but his real claim to fame was an ability to write completely unsuccessful state- ments. Being quite a connoisseur of popular music, much of his time was spent listening to his many records. Af M «f ALLAN EDOUARD MAY Pasadena, California Lfter eighteen years of life in the warm climes of southern California, Al couldn ' t stand the Maryland weather — as a result, we found him a confirmed member of the radiator squad. Always ready to take life as it came, Al ' s days at the academy were enjoyable. Relaxation was readily found in a " friendly little game. " and " May ' s Casino " will long be remembered by the second company. Although not an outstanding athlete, Al was avidly interested in all phases of Navy sports. Friendly, generous, and reliable, we remember him as a fine friend and roommate and envy the men with whom he will serve in years to come. WILLIAM HUNNEWELL McCAUGHEY -w-rj Long Beach, California W hen Mac decided to give up his career as a beach rabbit, and leave his endeared Long Beach, the Navy found itself with another big ray of California sunshine. Always hounded by the Academic departments, Mac always managed to nose under the historic 2.5 or run the gauntlet of re-exams and stay with the beloved class of ' 43. In spite of a rather rough time in studies, he found time to indulge in a wide variety of intramurals, including soccer, track, crew, and volleyball. Tall, dark, and handsome, modest Mac must watch the girls on his trip up the ladder, but he was conscientious in all his efforts and cannot help but be a star shipmate. ai M % . HARRY SCHOUTER McCOOL ,_ Ogden, Utah i here ' s one thing about Mac — if he ' s wrong at first, he ' d rather be wrong than President. A golden-brown suntan, high-powered cars, clothes, and his fiancee monopolized his dreamy moments; but genial Mac worked himself like a fiend in the gym or at crew. That wistful glance of radiator men was at that " body beautiful " of Mac ' s, although some jealous classmates called him muscle- bound. Those hours he spent with his classical music and his inspirational and record-breaking streak of letters from home put him in a world of his own. With his unusual ability to stick at studies and sports and his happy-go-lucky disposition, he can ' t miss going far. GEORGE WILBURE McHENRY, JR. n- At Large JVlac, " like most Marine Juniors, was a citizen of the world before he came to the Naval Academy. An ardent athlete, he could be found almost every afternoon on either the tennis or handball courts. George also worked out at the hops, cutting many a caper in a corner of the Armory. His favorite indoor hobby was reading books, each different from the other in theme and interest. Sunday mornings usually found him out on the river racing sailing craft. His year round tan has always been a mystery. While not a star man, Mac was a close com- petitor by virtue of his diligent study. It is this quality, combined with his abiUty to get along with people that will make him a success wherever he goes. HOWARD MORGAN McKINLEY -. San Francisco, California rdere is a man who is willing to stand up for his beliefs in any com- pany, and at any time. An alert brain, coupled with a driving ambition and in- spiration from a beautiful young lady, place Mac in a well deserved spot near the top of his class. Whenever he wasn ' t swimming or working out in the gymnasium (which was seldom), his afternoons were spent in a religious observance of " bunk drill. " Always with a ready smile, Mac is sure to win his way to the top of the ladder of success. Someday we ' ll admit with pride that we knew him when. . . . WILLIAM REGINALD McQUILKIN . Salt Lake City, Utah i . sandblower in stature, but a first-platooner in manhness and character was the Irishman, " McQuink. " After two years at New Mexico MiUtary Institute, and another at Washington " U, " he brought his Irish qualities to the Naval Academy. His sincerity, strong convictions, and good manners, combined with an outward display of indifference made Bill a study in character. Battalion tennis, lacrosse, and a fondness for bridge, reading, and friendly argument took his spare time. Without a drag Bill was a confirmed redmike, but he told me to tell you: " there are more beautiful women in Salt Lake City than any other citv in the world. " ? 5 2 :; - fyf. f ;Z,.J GEORGE ROBERT MEYER San Diego, California Cjeorge got the jump on us by coming out of the Reserves with the stamp of the University of California on his sun tanned brow. However, it took the Academic departments only a year to even that score. Battalion football occupied most of his spare time, but George spent a great deal of his inexhaustible energy trying to convince us less fortunates of the perfection of California. His knack of imitating almost anyone you wanted to hear, and a talented rendition of popular songs carved a favorable impression on our memories. Big George will be carried successfully over difficulties by his wit and optimism. FORREST RICHARD MITCHELL . Lehi, Utah i conjecture of interesting possibilities would be that of determining " Mitch ' s " potentialities, his latent talents. In three years evolution, from a product oftheclean wide open spaces of Utah, " Mitch " has shown himself capable of most any and every undertaking. He dissipated his desire for a ction by zealously playing lacrosse, tennis, basketball, and in sailing, and his desire for mental stimulation in bridge and reading. His eagerness to participate in any enterprise, and his friendly spirit have won him innumerable friends. Perseverance and sincerity of purpose combined with inherent ability and appearance, bequeath to the Navy as well as the girl back home, a man with a brilliant career. MICHAEL USIS MOORE ( . Tacoma, Washington i . good gun, a load of grub, and ample time; what say? Let ' s hit for the hills, where the tall evergreens reach skyward, where the skies are your blankets at night and the game is ample but smart. " When " Foxy " left the rugged peaks of Washington to cast his lot with the seagoing lads, he left behind memories which refused to die. Undaunted by the academics and those lovely creatures termed women, his life at the academy has been a happy one. Mike ' s activities included football, wrestling, Company Pistol Team, and the Spanish Club. The cheerfulness, humor, and a happy-go-lucky outlook which so characterizes Mike, has proved a " find " for the many friends who know him. When the ducks fly high, let ' s hope Mike will be there. JOHN JEROME NOLAN _ Butte, Montana If you don ' t believe Jerome is from Butte just look at the mail on his desk — a letter a day from the family. He too has had his worries for he was almost counted out plebe year by the Academic department. The Irish in him has taken charge since, and the storm was weathered. Not even two months in the hospital could keep him down youngster year, although it did hinder his soccer abilities. Flying home every leave should not be any drawback when he starts after his wings. Here ' s hoping we see you at Pensacola. However, though some of us may not see him for awhile, all of us will remember his contagious happiness and humor throughout the ensuing years. :LjQd k-, ' ' - ' ' LodJl z(. m. , ■ (7aJ - (2. % L ' iiMy- C,C TLoMz B ELWOOD EDWIN NUTT -p-, Anaheim, California Jiid came to the Naval Academy from California, bringing with him an excellent taste for swing music and a passion for painting. He first set his eye on the gentlemen ' s sport of sailing and immediately took the sailing coach by storm, so that in spite of no previous experience he made the sailing team along with the experts. His non-dragging weekends were spent racing on the big boats. When the urge struck him, he would break out his water colors, and the products of these times often found a place in the Trident. Ed ' s ready wit and bridge ability made him a good companion for any bull session or card game. PAUL EDWARD PADGET „ Lander, Wyoming Xvoaring in from the sage covered plains of the West, Paul met with but one setback at the Academy; the Executive department would never let him don his " levies " for Saturday noon inspection. Such frustration only caused him to expand mightily into other fields: athletics, academics, and conquest of the feminine heart. Paul took many a bruise in a score of battalion sports, but always managed to hit the other guy harder. Classmates marveled at his ability to " figure everything out " after reaching the section room, and he possessed an uncanny technique in making two dates for practically every weekend. JOSEPH RAYMOND PERRY ,t_ _ CuDAHY, California llow I hate this Navy. " By these words you shall know him. But let us remember that he who complains the loudest loves the Navy the most. This was Joe. The Navy is his life and without it he would be lost. Joe studied hard and played hard. He was never on good terms with skinny but, just as in many a wres- tling match, Joe emerged the victor. We ' ll remember Joe for his encylopedic mind, ability to fix anything, love for music, and his determination and spirit on the athletic field, be it in a friendly game of tennis or in a battalion football game. The fleet lost a good enhsted man but will receive in return a splendid officer. RICHARD HERMAL PETERSEN tt„ Ogden, Utah 1 etsie " is his nickname. It is rumored that he was branded with this name by the girls of his home town. Girls are often wrong; and in this case the nickname is not at all fitting, for Pete is a 6 ' 2 " package of Swedish manhood. One of Pete ' s favorite subjects is educational administration. He has often been overheard discussing the educational system of the Naval Academy. When Pete wasn ' t rolling the boys in the aisles with his wit he was usually found playing basket- ball, fencing, arguing, thinking about his girl back home, or playing his fiddle. It is safe to say that Petsie will be remembered. c ? ( cc THOMAS LANGWORTHY RANDALL -. J San Francisco, California riis father gave him a service rifle barrel for teething and a saber for a rattle. It was in this atmosphere that his first words were spoken, " I ' m goin ' in the Marine Corps. " All discussions of Naval interest have invariably ended in these same last words, and he has proceeded to give a good reason by becoming an expert with any firearm worth shooting. Both the small bore and outdoor rifle teams have profited from this skill. Classmates call him " Tommie, " " T. L., " and a sucker for a blind date. Although he may be joining a companion service, we can still look forward to reunion with a fine shipmate. JAMES EUGENE RICE «-|- Santa Monica, California Jungle Jim, the Beachcomber, " — however contradictory, that ' s what we called him. The savages never saw him, but he ' s at home on any beach. An ambition since early childhood to be a handsome life guard was realized in his eighteenth year when he began work at Santa Monica. A member of Sigma Nu Fraternity, Jim matriculated at the University of California in Los Angeles, working summers and weekends on the beach. This life of comparative ease ended abruptly when the " Beachcomber " traded swimming trunks for blue service. " Jungle ' s " rugged nature has, however, been retained, with some of the roughest edges now smoothed out. GEORGE WILLIAM RINGENBERG ,_i Seattle, Washington i ales of the rugged Alaskan country, of salmon fishing in the cold streams of his home state, of football, and of the gals on his string were synonymous with the name. Red Ringenberg. This rollicking redhead, hailing from the tall timber of the state of Washington has highlighted his varsity career on the gridiron with his spirit, fight, and chatter. Time proposed for study usually found the Ring penning a letter to one of his very numerous friends, reading a sports page, or chowing down. In years to come, Ring ' s spirit and his will to win will forever keep him on the roster of those who are to receive " N Stars. " ROBERT THEODORE RUBLE -Pj Denver, Colorado Oob, the tall fellow from Colorado, was one of those individuals who seemed to get good grades without having to overwork, or to worry about the next day ' s assignments. He was always ready for a sail, swim, or a Uberty. Bob did his share of dragging and every one was above 3.5, too. His spare energy was spent, during the last three years, in putting out the Reef Points for the edification of the plebes, as an active Boat Club sailor, and as a member of the Spanish Club and the Reception Committee. Bob ' s cheerful laugh and bright remarks were always there when you seemed to need them most. yfr y 325 DONALD WAYNE SENCENBAUGH u -, Grand Junction, Colorado Fete " knows two loves — music and math. He plays his part well in cither of them. He came to us from the wilds of Colorado, knowing little about the Navy except that it offered a lot of math courses and had something to do with battleships and seasickness. He knows plenty now, else he would not have starred. A thorough Red Mike the first two years, Pete finally succumbed to the attractions of the Eastern girls and developed into a leading (not always) member of the " Fly- ing Squadron. " If a slide rule is permitted on the bridge, the Navy holds a lot in store, because he takes with him all the qualities needed for a Naval career. JOHN TYLER SHEPHERD r-p, Seattle, Washington 1 he Navy is his life. Beyond that, little but vital statistics need be given. " Shep " was born in Chesley, Ontario, but Seattle was his home and he was ever ready to expound its praises. Its nearness to good salt water, to ships, and to the Puget Sound Navy Yard provided the source for an amazing knowledge of Navy life, assimilated with seeming ease. His education was about average, but very adequate, for stars had a positive affinity for his collar. All sports were his meat, but music, the ketches, and model-building pulled him away from them all too frequently. His personality and love of the service helped him make friends; then he kept them. FENTON FREDERICK SMITH, JR. p Everett, Washington Omitty ' s younger life included a boyhood on the shoal waters of Puget Sound, where he grew to love the restlessness of blue water, and four years at the Everett Washington High School, where he developed his athletic abilities for the academy by showing the boys his heels on the cinder path and on the gridiron. He came to Annapolis with a salty air handed down from many genera- tions of seafaring people. His athletic prowess has been largely confined to bat- talion sports. A good companion, Smitty could well be called one of the most energetic personafities in his class, as any one of his friends can tell you. (lgM(Jj W JL juU i HARRY CARL SMITH A San Bernardino, California conscientious, diligent, and hard-working man, these were the quaUties which characterized SnuflTy. As our class president, he has worked un- remittingly to fulfill his duties. Never having any trouble with studies, SnuflTy confined his talents plus his 6 ' 4 " frame, to crew; and besides winning his letter, he has been regarded as one of the strongest oarsmen Navy has had in years. Con- cerning the fairer sex, he remained true to one sweet California Miss, who ' s favorite song is " I ' m Just Wild About Harry. " As an all around man, and a person well worth knowing, SnuflTy has what it takes, and here ' s hoping we meet again at Pcnsacola. mh. ' Ha w C. ivA B. Ke He KENNETH M SMITH San Diego, California ..en hailed from the western United States, California, Montana, Arizona, and Honolulu. His sea legs were well established as he was a Navy Junior. He was not the flashy type, but after close association his character was definitely appealing. As he was descended from a long line of authors, his favorite pastime was reading a good book, thus increasing his enormous vocabulary. Bridge, sailing, and skillful photography absorbed most of his recreation time. Professionally, Ken has the makings of a fine Naval officer, and he should be a valuable addition to any wardroom. DAVID SLOANE STANLEY San Marino, California Le whom the Gods would destroy they first make mad — full well does Dave know this and has admirably learned the art of self-control. No stranger to adversity, David numbers among his attributes a firm tenacity, a perseverance, most helpful in his chosen field. Inscrutable, this canny lad was well versed in his knowledge of people. A brush with the Academic department saddened Dave for a while, but he recuperated nicely. More helpful than the ability to do a physics prob, Dave could spot a bluff every time. No angel, he was yet a pillar of strength, the .soul of honor, a true friend, and had the courage of his convictions. WALTER WILLIAM STEVENS . San Diego, California i-fter first noticing this member of the blue-clothed, brass-buttoned specie of sea life, one wondered if the smile was wider than the shoulders, or vice versa. Those shoulders were a product of the " muscle squad, " no doubt, but the smile and charming personality were strictly California grown products. Every afternoon of the week, and when not dragging on weekends, Steve could be found keeping in trim in the gym. His social ease and engaging sense of humor made Steve a pleasant companion for lovely young drags and should make him equally popular with his fellow officers in the fleet. The best of luck, Stevie. ARTHUR DEWEY STRUBLE, JR. y At Large Uewey came to the Naval Academy practically empty handed — bringing with him only a few thousand odds and ends, which included equipment for his favorite hobby, photography. With no academic worries to trouble him, he found that he had plenty of time to follow his hobby and become a sailing enthusiast as well. Almost every afternoon, weather permitting, he would be out on the river or bay in dinghy or yacht. In the winter, he gave his all for the swim- ming team. Strictly a one-woman man, he dragged whenever she could come and otherwise would content himself making sailing trips or developing pictures during the weekends. 7,a s u fi.

Sc M- RICHARD LEO SULLIVAN t San Diego, California Ounny " should have been his nickname instead of " Sully, " for he was never seen without a smile. Dick was a sharpshooting Marine Junior, whose invaluable aid to the Rifle Team earned him an " N " youngster year. A tall likable person, Dick made a good man for the Reception Committee. When spirits were low, strains from his violin were as cheerful to us as they were valuable to the Midshipmen ' s Orchestra. Besides letter-writing to the fairer sex, Dick found time to read books and to appreciate classical music. As long as there is room on top. Sully will be out there climbing. Af PHILIP BOSWELL TALIAFERRO At Large Lfter bilging the West Point entrance examinations two years in a row, Tolly ended up at the Naval Academy. His favorite pastime is developing arguments into free for alls. " Bos " spends quite a bit of time over at the wrestling loft perfecting his technique, but he still prefers a congested room for his best efforts. His one failing is his inability to sing. Nope, he can ' t carry a tunc worth a darn, but, even when he murders one, he can make you enjoy it with those expressive eyes of his. Those eyes of his have served him in a much more important role than putting across a song, however. For how can a prof give a man a low mark after looking into such eyes. T BERNARD SCOTT UMBARGER Los Angeles, California his long, lean Californian, answering to " Scotty, " hails from Los Angeles, where the lady of his heart patiently waits. Coming here after two years at U.C.L.A., his reserved dignity and calm self-assurance immediately es- tablished him among his classmates. Gifted with a dry wit and keen sense of humor, Scott found himself always in demand. Academics never fazed him; his flair for music, taste for good literature, daily trip to the gym, plus extensive correspondence left never an idle moment on his schedule. This quiet, " savvy " chap, with his sound judgment and leadership, will be a grand shipmate and a credit to the Service. WILLIAM WINNING VALLANDIGHAM FSan Francisco, California rom California and the fleet Val came to the Naval Academy with some valuable experience. At the Academy he was a conscientous worker and stood above average in his class. His not dragging very much was due to his being in love with the girl back home. Although he did not engage in organized sports, Val was very active athletically. One of his accomplishments of which few people knew was being a good pianist. In the years to come, Val will be a success at what- ever he attempts because of his common sense, calm manner, and genial personality. HpPi F » W H 1. ■1 f x .A., .. ► 1 1 1 1 r l« tO- yO( .-TX T : € (a WILLIAM BABSON VAN DUSEN y Portland, Oregon Jimmy, better known as Van, was a graduate of Admiral Farragut, where he made an enviable record. He seriously considered going on the stage, and those who saw his performance in the Masqueraders ' performance of " Tovarich " readily agreed that he did not lack the ability. Being quite a ladies ' man, Van never missed the opportunity to drag, and much to the pleasure of his drags, he was a dancer who would be a credit to any dancing school. He possessed a splendid sense of humor, which, combined with his numerous jokes, made him the life of any party and should aid him in meeting the trials to come. J £ oiAi jfftiVJUU DALE OLSON VAN ORDEN u-Kj Smithfield, Utah JN ow back in Utah ... " Van comes from his B-hole to uphold his end of the argument. Van hailed from the Rocky Mountains where he won honors playing tennis, and baseball. Continuing to be a versatile athlete, Dale played plebe tennis and battalion football, wrestling, and softball. He comes from a good- sized family of hardy Mormon pioneers. Desiring to get out on his own. Van worked hard to get his appointment to the Naval Academy. Since he has been here, he has never stopped working for that commission. Yet he never misses a hop or a chance to be with the boys. His quiet and reserved mien made him well liked by his classmates as well as by his girl friends. LEWIS WESLEY WALKER, JR. ;, San Diego, California Waco " — and he came running to help the " friend in need. " His inherent ability to work for and help the other fellow has won him a host of friends. Coupling his extra-curricular activities of Reception Committee and Gym Team manager with dragging and sailing proved him a man with a well-rounded person- ahty. A Californian, he hopes some day to find a climate just like the one he le ft. A couple of years in the Naval Reserve gave him an understanding of his future career, and judging from his interest in the Navy and things nautical, he will make an excellent officer and shipmate. KENNETH CARROLL WALLACE ,. CoRONADO, California 1 he sights of Europe and Asia are not new to Ken, but still he regards California, his home, as heading the list. From this sunkissed land he came, brown and eager, with the Navy way already instilled in him from eighteen years of following the fleet. A capable performer in sports, especially track and swimming, he values equally an afternoon leisurely spent reading Time. With his ready Irish smile and riotous sense of humor, he has no lack of friends and, indeed, does very well on Saturday nights. Above all, he is a Navy booster. With this and his under- standing of people, he should go far as a Navy career man. " J en A C JLe JOHN THOMAS WHEELER ,-j Fort Collins, Colorado I erhaps by coincidence, perhaps by fate, or perhaps by a limitless ambition coupled with a fiery determination, Jay was lured to the Naval Academy hoping to find a daring vocation that could offer even more risk, excitement, and variety than his motorcycle and the winding roads over the Colorado mountains could offer. Jay, in his calm and modest way, refused to comment. We admired Jay for his frankness and truthful devotion to his friends. We can be sure of one thing — whatever field he chooses, his inventive interest in science and his vigorous desire to attain and maintain a good physique will make him a fine officer. Tc GEORGE HENRY WHISLER, JR. Palo Alto, California see " Hank " walking down the corridor, shoulders reaching from wall to wall, head held jauntily, lips whistHng a gay tune, was to admire his physical perfection. To see him play varsity football and lacrosse with the ferocity of a tiger, or to watch him swim with the coordination and style of a champion was to become convinced that here was a real man ' s man. Many a feminine heart was known to beat faster as he passed by, but Hank rarely conceded them a glance. For three years the butt of all the jokes that a roomful of gleeful pranksters could devise. Hank won heartfelt admiration for his constantly amiable reaction. NORMAN EDWARD WHITE . Sacramento, California vfter " Flossy " stepped into the ethereal chute that dropped him in the California city of Sacramento, the sunny West brought the lad up with a robust constitution, excellent material for the service. The cavalry claimed him first; but, he soon decided to change saddle sores for seasickness. His plebe and youngster years were reviews, for Flossy ' s three years of engineering courses at " Cal " gave him a wider range than the fast moving courses of the Academy could cover. Reading gave him his greatest pleasure, but his little nips of freedom were gained from hard work on the ketches. The reward was usually his favorite, scotch and soda. THOMAS HAROLD WILKINSON ,_p Butte, Montana i ommy hails from Butte, Montana, out west where the men are supposed to be individualists. At any rate. Tommy had a remarkable ability for taking things as they came, good or bad. For him, convention was something which should be followed only when it fitted his personal desires. Here at school, Tommy fenced for the varsity, winning awards all three years, played a lot of handball, swam, and did a bit of sailing to pass his time, when this did not interfere with his bulky correspondence. Tommy was a member of the Boat Club, and a very able debater when interested. " A friend in need, indeed.

His numeral covered bathrobe readily signified his ability in both plebe and varsity lacrosse and soccer. Bill ' s locker door, covered with pictures, boasted of his feminine attraction — snaking and jitterbugging were his specialties. And, as his grades revealed. Bill was a savoir, a real star man. He was fond of reading or talking, in fact, he was always ready to tell anyone about deer hunting, sheep raising. Northern California, or W. W. Williams. WALTER KENNETH WILSON Long Beach, California i_ alifornia ' s loss was Navy ' s gain when Hack came East. His crack diving netted many points for the swimming team. Although dogged by the worst of luck. Will managed to pull through in many a pinch and come out the winner. Armed with an unequalled wit and a ready come-back, he made his way anywhere he went, and he ' ll always be on the top of the pile. He wasn ' t a snake, but he more than held his own with the women. They couldn ' t resist that certain some- thing he had. His luck will change, but, regardless, Ken will be an asset to any man ' s Navy. NELSON COATES WOODWARD j Alhambra, California r ersevering rather than brilliant, Woody weathered the Academic departments by sheer hard work. Thoughtfulness, generosity and a grand sense of humor made him an ideal roommate; while his helping spirit, coupled with his witty remarks, endeared him to all hands. Most of his spare moments were spent on the Turtle, to her benefit. His hobby, a knowledge of the ways of the Navy, was a boon to his classmates and the despair of the plebes. His great interest was in becoming a Naval officer, for which his cool head and self control made him well suited. Nevertheless, he always had time to enjoy life and to help others do the same. ELMO RUSSELL ZUMWALT, JR. , Tulare, California J. o Bud the only two things of any importance in this life were women and women. But when he did take time off from his amorous pursuits, he could do amazing things in other fields as well. Bud insisted youngster year was fruit and starred to prove it. Not being content with being great academically, he was twice winner of the Quarterdeck Society ' s public-speaking contest. Like all men of genius. Bud leaned a bit towards the absent-minded side. Few of us will ever forget his solo " column right " in the middle of a company mass. But we who know Bud are satisfied that success will follow him wherever he goes. k UJ.

Today ' s Curtiss Dive Bomber, the SB2C-1, gives America a weapon which, in its classi- fication, has yet to meet its equal in speed, range and striking power. This latest descendant of the long line of Curtiss " Helldivers " outspeeds its immediate predecessor by 100 M. P. H. — flies twice as far — carries double the armament with twice the number of heavy bombs. The SB2C-1 is but one of seven types of modern military aircraft whose large- scale production in Curtiss- Wright ' s four great airplane plants is a contribution of first importance to National Defense.

In answer to the Navy ' s call to clear the decks, Sturtevant has designed a new type of blower and Westinghouse has perfected a new, smaller blower motor that fits inside the ventilating duct. In addition to saving valuable deck space, this new blower motor increases ventilating efficiency over 15% and reduces noise level by about 25%- The development of this blower motor is typical of our response through the years to the Navy ' s call for specialized electric and steam equipment. And the millions of horsepower in turbine drives alone, which are powering the fleet, are evidence of out- standing dependability of Westinghouse marine equip- ment in service. Today, as always, Westinghouse engineering and manufacturing facilities stand ready to serve the Navy. Westinghouse Electric C Manufacturing Company, East Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

As builders of Aerol struts for aircraft landing gear, it is our grave responsibility to meet the tremendous demands of an all-out war without delay! These demands will be met.

Everything else is subordinated to the total effort for an American victory. The duty of the American motion picture industry is to serve. This means direct help to our National Government, and a regular flow of quality entertainment films from the studios to the theatres of the United States and those of our Allies. The motion picture industry pledges this service of enter- tainment as a patriotic responsibility. The all-out effort upon which the country is embarked re- quires contributions from everyone. Not alone must members of the armed forces and workers in factory and field shoulder this national task. Morale is essential in the success of the total program. In the strengthening of the national spirit there is need for proper entertainment and relaxation, for such surcease as is possible now and then from strain and toil. The industry in all its branches — production, distribution and exhibition — is enlisted for the duration. Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America, Inc. Will H.

SIX TIMES in a century-and-a-half, the swift and peaceful progress of America has swerved temporarily from its peaceful course ... six times we have been detoured into war by enemies who misunderstood our love of peace, and interpreted it as weakness. After each of these historic detours, we have gotten back on the road again: the road that has led us to higher attainments than any other nation has yet attained. Once again we are on such a detour: in a war we did not seek, and which our enemies will one day regret seeking. Once again we have deferred our peaceful progress and have dedicated every effort to getting through that detour. And once again — when we are through — we shall turn our eyes towards greater horizons . . . towards new achievements through science and industry — new things for a new and greater America. Here at RCA, this is our creed . . . and we fear neither today nor tomorrow. We know that when this war is won, radio has many con- tributions to make to our way of life.

" But some things will never change. Equipment and weapons are still only as good as the men behind them. In the present emergency, the spirit of " I ' ve just begun to fight " — the pioneer virtues of courage, integrity and love of country — are still new, still mean the difference be- tween victory and defeat. Candles, too are " old-fashioned " - — but still vitally necessary in emergencies. Every Navy ship carries a supply at all times. W ILL BAUMER Candle Contpany, Inc. SYRACUSE, N. Y. Since 1855 Proudly supplying candles to both the Army and Navy Congratulations On the farm and In Industry, MM Twin City Tractors are helping carry us to VICTORY. Both Agriculture and industry have BIG JOBS to perform in our War Program, and both are finding in MM Twin City trac tors the kind of power whicli gets jobs done - — quickly, easils- and at low cost. For 77 years Minneapolis- Moline has contributed in meet- ing every new economic situ- ation. MM Modern Farm Machines have been an impor- tant factor in making American farmers the World ' s greatest producers of food and fibre. Today with a War Program calling for greatly increased production of FOOD AND FIBRE FOR VICTORY, MM Tractors and Machines will more than ever be given an opportunity to prove their extreme versatility, their ease of handling, their low cost operation and their capacity to produce. MINNEAPOLIS-MOLINE POWER IMPLEMENT COMPANY ™| | " °tT Compliments of ROBERT AND COMPANY, Inc ARCHITECTS and ENGINEERS ATLANTA WASHINGTON NEW YORK 87 For many years it has beeir our priv- ilege to provide a marine and indus- trial America with the finest enjiines that loyal labor could build. Now we have a new responsibility. Our entire resources and facilities are called into active service for Defense. • In so doing we find double satisfaction in the tasks performed today. Develop- ing advanced production metiiods, for example, means first and foremost that the outnut of enjiines for the U. S. Navy, Coast Guard, Army Quar- termaster Corps and British Admiralty will be speeded up. But it also means, in the years ahead, that production of Sterling Engines for peacetime pur- poses will be more efficient than ever before. All along, this has been the story behind the production of the new 12 cylinder Sterling " Admiral " — the engine which is being used to power speedy Motor Torpedo Boats. We have adopted highly exacting standards of precision and craftsman- ship that are rivalled only in airplane engine factories. We have made the " Admiral " amazingly light-of- weight in relation to horsepower developed, and into the " Admiral " have been incorporated the latest ideas in ma- rine engine manufacture. So while Sterling " Admirals " do their share in thwarting the menace of tyranny, they are also blazing a trail which marine engines can follow when peace returns.

Through with school and burning the midnight oil. As an ensign you ' ve nothing to do but fight battles and catch up on your read- ing. For a starter, here ' re some jokes that were current during World War I, published in the " Literary Digest, " when ensigns were graduating in 1916-1917. Instructor: What is strategy? English Sergeant: It ' s when you don ' t let the enemy discover you ' re out of ammunition but keep right on firing. Questioned about his first battle, one man reported that he had been perfectly cool — so cool that he fairly shivered. " Quit your howlin ' , " cried an Irish recruit to his comrade who had just been shot in the arm. " Look at Terry over there. He ' s just had his head shot off, and he ain ' t saying a word. " A newly enlisted recruit in the cavalry insisted that he had had orders to dismount, but on being questioned confessed that the orders had come not from headquarters but from hindquarters. " Halt! Who goes there? " " Cherman spy. I chust want to make a drawing of der fortifications. " " Pass in, German spy. Have you got pencil and paper? " o " Professor, I want to take up International law. What courses of study would you recommend? " " Constant target practice. " " Now young man, why aren ' t you at the Front? " Young Man (milking a cow) : " Cos there ain ' t any milk at that end. Missus. " " What makes war, Mr. Ford, is that everybody wants peace — on his own terms. " " A peculiar thing about this war is that while some of the belligerents never lose a trench, they seem to re-capture quite a number. " " The study of European geography this year is largely a matter of opinion. " " What-de-yah think of Von Hindenburg ' s drive? " Golf Fan: His drive is aU right, but they say he ' s weak on the green. The teacher of natural geography directed all of her pupils to write a definition of the word, " geyser. " Willie evoked this definition: " a kaiser is a disturbance of the earth ' s surface. " " While the United States Army is admittedly weak, the arrival of President Wilson ' s grandson may be said to have strengthened the infantry. " Among suggestions for winning this war are to let the Belgians build armored cathedrals and let the Russian Cossacks be ordered to dye their whiskers green so that the enemy will mistake the army for a field of alfalfa.

Making Planes Safer KLIXON AIRCRAFT CIRCUIT BREAKERS Every day, more and more KLIXON Circuit Breakers are being installed in aircraft of all kinds — to provide simpler and surer protection for electric circuits. Used instead of fuses these breakers are more permanent and more foolproof They are not affected by brief, heavy overloads which are not harmful. But they do trip out quickly when harmful overloads exist — thereby protecting not only circuits but the planes themselves from dangerous fires. Moreover, after a KLIXON Circuit Breaker does trip out and overload conditions are corrected the circuit is easily reestablished by simply pressing a button or throwing a toggle right on the panel board. Nothing has to be replaced. It is as simple as it is sure.

These inserts are made of hard, smooth, precision-shaped wire in stainless steel or phosphor bronze materials. Protection of tapped threads in light metals such as aluminum and magnesium against wear and abrasion is secured at low cost with " Aero-Thread " Inserts. Increased holding power in light alloys and plastics is obtained and stripped threads reduced materially. " Aero-Thread " Screws and Studs, with their circular section thread form engaging the insert, have 100 per cent greater fatigue resistance and 25 per cent greater static strength than similar parts conventionally threaded. Thread seizure or galling is eliminated by the hard anti-friction surface of the " Aero- Thread " Insert. The " Aero-Thread " System is standard for replacement on all U. S. naval aircraft engines, thus eliminating the over-size stud nuisance. It is also used in original installations by manu- facturers of aircraft engines, carburetors, oil filters, magnetos and other products.
