They play as we parade on Worden Field, and as we march to football games and to Chapel; as we hold pep rallies in the messhall and Tecumseh Cour t; as we dance the best girl around darkened floors to " Sleepy Time Girl. " Their bandstand serenades set a fast pace for sections going to and returning from classes, giving each one of us a new vigor and a some- times incorrect feeling that spring is in the air.

STOUT, USN Head of Departmeni From our first day of Plebe Summer, the Seamo Depart- ment was one of the groups most responsible for our seemingly endless procession of drills. Starting with cut- ter drills, sailing and jackstay work, and going on to signaling, motor launch handling, yawl sailing, and finally, as First Class Year rolled around, YP drills, we spent our " sec time " under their guidance. Three times each year we relearned the flashing light code and took the blinker competition in Luce Hall. The second term of Second Class Year we started our formal classroom con- tact with the Navigation Department, where we were separated into two classes, those who could punch tables and those who couldn ' t. Throughout that year. First Class Cruise, and the first term of First Class Year, we became increasingly familiar with the Nautical and Air Almanacs, HO 214 ' s, Dutton ' s tables, and maps and charts of every- thing. " Practice makes perfect " was their motto— we cer- tainly lived up to part of it. 44 moxi CDR J. N. Johnson, LCOL A. L. Booth, CDR W. H. Baumberger, CDR F. J. Foley, CAPT M. A. Sawyer, CDR F. V.

Grdnanee and Qunnery Our first contact with Ordnance and Gunnery came Plebe Summer on our trips across the river to the rifle range, where we were instructed in the handling of small arms and range procedure. Plebe Summer ended; it was a year before that subject became anything more to us than just another contributor to the grey hairs of the upperclasses. With the start of Youngster Cruise, how- ever, we became better acquainted through the mediums of General Quarters, gun drills, and lectures. From those drills and the basic drills of Youngster Year, through the classroom work in ordnance and ballistics Second Class Year, we progressed to the more difficult matters of solving the surface and antiaircraft fire control problems of First Class Year. On cruises we learned something of what makes a gunnery department go, and how to man the stations of a ship ' s battle bill. In the classrooms we laid the groundwork upon which to build to get " the maximum hits in the minimum time. " 45 CAPT M. A. SAWYER, USN Head of Deparfmenf LT W. W. Stevens, LT J. R. Trautmann, LT R.

CRAIG, USN Head of Deparfment Our acquaintance with the Aviation Department was first made Third Class Spring in a rather brusque way— the dunking drills. In addition to flying, on Second Class Cruise we studied carrier air operations, some elementary phases of air tactics, and aerology. Second Class Year our work was divided into two phases, drills in the fall and spring, and classroom work in the winter. In the fall we flew dual instruction and studied aerodynamics and flight planning. That winter we combined our work in aerology and studied, in addition, the organization, his- tory, and physical setup of naval aviation. In the spring we alternated flying drills with airborne radar. First Class Year we again flew in the fall and spring, studying air- craft control, types of missions, and other matters show- ing the relation of aviation to the fleet during the winter, and with an eye on the future, we took the aviation selection tests to see if we were qualified to go into the aviation branch. 46 G.

GrafF. marine £wagincerim Plebe Summer and most of Plebe Year our time with the Marine Engineering Department was spent over drawing boards. Starting with the simplest types of engineering drawing we advanced through descriptive geometry and sketching to the final phase of Plebe Year— a study of naval boilers, in preparation for Youngster Cruise. Young- ster Year we worked with engineering materials and proc- esses, naval turbines, auxiliary machinery, and internal combustion engines to round out our studies in the mechan- ical analysis of naval machinery. Second Class Year we learned what makes the moving parts move in the courses in fluid mechanics and thermo-dynamics. First Class Year we started off with thermo-dynamics of internal combus- tion engines, and went on to basic mechanisms, finishing during the second term with buoyancy, stability, and damage control. On cruises we put into practice our class- room work and became acquainted with the operating characteristics of engineering plants. 47 CAPT C. S. SEABRING, USN Head of Deparfment B. H. Buikstra, R.

FIALA, USN Acting Head of Department " F-MA " For two and one-half years this was our battle cry as we sought to ground ourselves in the language of science under the Math Department. Plebe Summer was spent in catching up on what math we had forgotten and learning to use a tool that was to become as much a part of us as our hands— the guessing-rod, or slip-stick. From then on we spent the year in the throes of trigo- nometry, higher algebra, and the perennial bugaboo, analytical geometry. Second term brought the beginnings of difFerential calculus, and we then began to realize how cumulative math is. Youngster Year we continued with integral calculus, and then went on to mechanics, kine- matic and dynamic, until the middle of Second Class Year. That our math courses were in constant application in the other departments as methods of expression and problem-solving was a fact that made this course one which was of immediate value. Its use was not only in the future, but in the present. 48 CDR R. S. Harlan, R. A. Goodwin, CDR W. T. Kinsella, D. G. Howard, CDR J. G. Spongier, CAPT W. R. Smedberg III, E. W. Thom- son, CAPT L. M.

Plebe Year we studied chemistry, paying special atten- tion to the basic ideas and those aspects of modern chemistry which would be applicable to our profession. Youngster Year we took up physics, studying, in addition to the common physical phenomena, the principles of vec- tors, and continuing our work in atomic and molecular structure from chemistry. Second Class Year we started with the theories of electricity and continued after that with basic electrical engineering. First Class Year we con- tinued our work in electrical engineering and took up electronics, studying in the general rather than the spe- cific, with an eye to having a groundwork for understand- ing and using new developments. 49 CAPT R.

We started ofF Plebe Year with grammar and composition, continuing the second term with the study of English Litera- ture. Yo ungster Year we studied European History in the first term and American government in the second. Sec- ond Class Year we began with a short course in eco- nomics and continued by studying how our country has developed in the international field under the course in diplomatic history. Second term we continued our work with literature, studying specimens of the great literary masterpieces of various cultures of Europe with an eye to seeing how the culture and the writing can be tied together. First Class Year we included new phases, classroom speech and after-dinner speaking. Our first term was devoted to the study of the history of sea power, based on Mohan ' s concepts, and the second term was given to independent research and development of a topic for a term paper. 50 R.

These studies covered not only the grammar and rhetoric of the par- ticular language we took, but also included reading some of the great classics of that language. Toward the end of Youngster Year we took up the parts of our language especially necessary for naval officers by examining vari- ous situations in the language and seeing their applica- tion to particular occasions we might have to face. On cruise we began to see just how valuable this language training was by comparing the activities of those who spoke the tongue of the country with the doings of those who did not. During First Class Year many of us acquired ratings as interpreters and translators. 51 CAPT R. N. NORGAARD, USN Head of Department I LCDR R. Pennington, Jr., CAPT C. L. Blew, CAPT W. W.

HARGRAVE (MC), USN Head of Deparfmenf The Hygiene Department saw to it that our bodies re- mained fit under the rigorous routine. Yearly physical examinations insured our continued physical qualifications, and the stafF of sick bay took care of the little ills which beset us, while the hospital took care of the more serious ailments. The dental quarters of Bancroft were always available when the morning cofFee brought a twinge. The only course required by Congress to be taught at the Naval Academy is Hygiene. Second Class Year we had our hygiene course, a series of lectures on the various phases of personal hygiene and the various aspects of " the promotion and safeguarding of health, which is one of the functions of command. " For these lectures we had leading naval medical experts who instructed us in such varied fields as medicine in modern warfare, mental hygiene, first aid, aviation and submarine medicine, physi- ology, and other necessary aspects of our responsibilities in command. 52 LT L.

Department, which sought for us mens sano in corpora sano by insuring that we had a well-rounded physical training course. Organized drills in the many phases of physical skill insured at least a basic knowledge of almost every type of activity, as well as developing interests we would carry beyond our time at the Academy. In close conjunction with the or- ganized drills came the yearly tests in strength, agility, and swimming, which not only marked our development throughout our stay, but also established standards which had to be met for qualification. On the lighter side, the department, recognizing that athletics provide a healthy and beneficial form of recreation, set up the sports pro- gram which gave everybody a chance to develop his skill and teamwork in almost any known sport, developing habits of exercise to be kept to our advantage. 53 CAPT H.

Mrmslwnnq NORMANDY, MISSOURI As a member of the inland fleet based in Missouri, Bill did most of his sailing in the air as an AVCAD before landing at Navy. Though side-tracked from the pursuit of his wings, " Shaky " has had an enjoyable time vi- brating from class to class, girl to girl, and year to year. When a dragging weekend rolled around. Bill and his lady were usually found at the informal— or had to be ferretted out of the movie. The other afternoons found him butting heads on the gridiron. " Trembles " also loved the water. He won numerals in plebe swimming, crew, and water polo. His outstanding idiosyncrasy was his sense of humor; next come his " late to bed, late to rise " habit, his being deaf and dumb before breakfast, and his writing letters from a master copy. VILLISCA, IOWA After a year and a half in the USNR, Ad was quick to get into the swing of things here. A born diplomat, the " Judge, " as he was called because of the favorable decisions he has wrung from the Execs, numbered his friends in all classes. Although he had an OAO back in his home town, he occasionally dragged to insure a pleasant weekend. Ed ' s interests were many and varied. An avid follower of politics, he was always ready to extol the merits of the GOP, or the fallacies of the New Deal. His free time was consumed with his classical record library, or in a bridge game. Although his main interests lay in the liberal arts field. Ad found his niche in the classroom, and stood well in his class. His ability to moke everyone a personal friend will insure his success. ROSELLE, NEW JERSEY One of the most easy-going men in the class. Bob has seldom been found in an argument— when he ' s there, it is always a discussion. A " Rapid-Robert " over the hedges. Bob has seldom been beaten in company cross- country or steeplechase. Crew called him plebe summer, but this took away from his beloved sack time, and was forsaken. With the sound of wedding bells in his ears, Joe was an unswerving devotee of his OAO for four years, and the chiding of his wives for his being " in a rut " was answered by just a smile. The Academy was his first taste of the military, and although the system frequently came under the fire of his heavy guns. Bob plans on a long career, preferably while serving in the silent service. f 58 n CHICAGO, ILLINOIS John ' s personal charm, wit, and perpetual smile made the rigors of Academy life far easier for him and for all who knew him. His pleasant nature was admirable, for this Middle Western lad lived for most of his four years in a state of crisis with the Math department. Since Youngster Year and release from the barren social status associated with " Hey! Mister, " John exchanged cliches in as many Washington and Baltimore drawing rooms OS his frame could possibly stand, and as yet, he has failed to succumb to that feminine menace, the girl back home. John was a wonderful guy to know, and with his outstanding personal attributes, he will surely make a most enviable Naval career. (William D. assett SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA This strong man arrived at the Academy with an eye for the Marine Corps, a sun tan, and a crew cut. He still kept the crew cut, but by Second Class Year, his plans changed until they just seemed to center around a quiet little home in Southern California. But Califor- nia gave him more than nostalgia, for there the " Chief " had gained more muscles than any ten men could ever use, and was only satiated when climbing the rope for the gym team. Point Loma High School and Boyden ' s Prep in San Diego started Bill off on his scholarly career, and in the last few minutes of many a study hour he could still be heard saying, " They can ' t bilge us all. " ALVA, OKLAHOMA Though quiet, Bob could always be found in the thick of it when anything big was on the fire. A Navy Junior, Bob lettered in football at Bullis Prep before entering the Academy. His main interests, aside from women, could be summed up in two words— wine and song. Although Skinny kept him hopping, he was always ready to help out a classmate with a blind drag or a tough prob. An active intramural sportster. Bob was in com- pany steeplechase, softball, and football, and baft swimming and football, as well as occasional yawl races, winning numerals in three fields. His first love is Naval Aviation, and, if he has his way, he ' ll head for those wings as soon as possible after graduation. F I T A T T A L I O N 59 §li€haw ' d n. 4irhy DULUTH, MINNESOTA Dick, a hardy northman, never could understand the significance of " How cold does it get in Maryland, Mister? " His main pre-Navy endeavor v as being on the varsity basketball team at Duluth State Teacher ' s College— male student body of eight. A firm believer in the machine age, with its luxurious living, Dick made his " B-hole " a repository of non-reg luxuries, exemplified by the " Officers Country " sign appropriated on young- ster cruise. Yawl sailing occupied many an afternoon, but he was never without his book, FRENCH AAADE EASY. With this extra-curricular French, as with many other self-imposed tasks, Dick displayed a foresight that laid the ground for things ahead. F I T A T T A L I O N Xhomas 1. tilaUe, Jr. GLENDALE, CALIFORNIA A " hot-rod " fan from the first backfire, in the true California tradition. Beak occasionally would amaze us with his technical dissertations— " Now, an Edelbrack head— " etc., and always cherished fond memories of the good old days at the University of Southern Cal- ifornia, and especially those SAE house parties. Although his romantic life here resembled a sine curve, originating just before Christmas leave each year, approaching its peak around April, and hitting the low just before June Week, Tom never let this phase bother him. He divided his spare time between the Public Relations Committee and playing the piano, boogie style. The most compel- ling demand on his spare time was his sack, and rare was the day when Tom didn ' t pay homage to that gentle deity. MATTAPAN, MASSACHUSETTS From the Hub of the Universe to the Naval Academy, via the Atlantic Fleet, is Irv ' s short story. Brigade life, especially chow, agreed with him and his ability to insert humor into any situation mode him a welcome addition to our class. Despite occasional trouble with the Academic Board, Irv still wonts to enter the Civil Engineering Corps. What with playing batt football and cheering for the Boston Braves, he found little time for dragging, but whenever he did drag there was sure to be a spectacular story the next day. Whatever the future brings, there will always be laughs aplenty and chuckles galore for those who are fortunate enough to work with Irv. 60 BAY SAINT LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI The salt air of his home town filled Roger with a liking for the blue water and a long wind, although he would suppress his verbosity and direct his attention to the books, with stellar results— " star, that is! " , or to the Public Relations Committee. He spent his weekends with fair ladies from anywhere between New York and New Orleans, using tactics gained as a Kappa Sig at Tulane. Besides his cross-country racing with his drags on Sunday afternoons, the " Body Boh " was a tough competitor in tennis, squash, handball, or sailing. Man being the prod- uct of his yesterdays, Roger can look forward with confidence to the dawn of tomorrow. JERSEY CITY, NEW JERSEY In this corner, wearing the Marine Green, from Jersey City, New Jersey, we have Kenneth Andrew Bott, known to friends of all classes as Ken, outstanding friend and officer. Ken came to the Academy with the enlisted rank of Marine staff sergeant, and since that time has given the Academy a combination of spirit, friendliness and a necessary amount of academic effort. Best remembered as an indispensable master of ceremonies and the spark of good batt football teams. Ken found the Academy a stepping stone in a Marine Corps career. His Jersey accent, military know-how, and Jeannie-inspired dream- ing made him well-known in short order to all classes, and he spent full time on each subject. Sincere in things important. Ken leaves the Academy with real friends addicted to Jeannie and Jersey. I T §lhadcf ot h£n Jr. BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA If you did not know, the southern drawl would soon tell you that Rhodes came from Alabama. Transition from civilian life to the Navy was no problem after two years at Marion Military Institute, where he majored in Engineering. Never seeming to strain at anything, he was always counted on when a job needed doing. Athletics were well started when he reached Annapolis; football and baseball gave him excellent background to play on champion batt football and company softball teams. Varsity sports were represented in an heretofore untried sport, fencing. A typical example of his quality to see every joy through was illustrated in his being one to achieve the Eagle rank in scouting. Rhodes picks the Navy for a well-begun military career, not specifying branch. A T T A l_ I O N 61 F I T A T T A L I O N TAMPA, FLORIDA " Born on the crest of a v ave, and rocked in the cradle of the deep " — seems to typify this young Floridan who, since the age of twelve, has been eating, drinking, and sleeping sailboats. After seven years of sailing, and a year in the Navy, Brownie came to the Academy, where, from plebe summer on, he concentrated on— sailing, of course, engaging in all forms of that sport available. All this sailing did not, however, keep him from maintain- ing a flock of beautiful girls to drag, and few were the hops he missed. Always ready to join in the fun, he has helped in many a water fight, bricking party, and shower drenching. C.T. ' s loyalty and leadership will be invalu- able in his Navy career. ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA In accordance with his maxim that the fairway is re- served for the spineless, cowardly golfer, Ed has spent a good portion of his twenty-two years crawling out of sand traps and emitting harsh noises from behind uncompromising trees. Tenacity has its reward, however, for during Plebe Year, Ed managed to win the Maryland Intercollegiate Golf Championship, and came in a close second his Youngster Year. Despite these leg-aching triumphs, his prowess on the gridiron, and his position as secretary of the class, Ed has stood high academi- cally, and somehow found time to allow himself to be spoken for by the ever watchful girl back home. With a driver on his shoulder and wings on his chest, Ed is certain for a future of which both he and the Navy can well be proud. MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA When Glenn graduated from Blake School in 1944, he, a garden tie lover, volunteered and was sent over- seas from Minneapolis to St. Paul, Minnesota. Soon after his arrival here, Glenn was re-baptized " Horse, " a nickname more renowned than Kilroy ' s or Smoe ' s. Con- vinced that no one loves a fat man, as a plebe he enrolled in a first classman ' s pushup course, and with such an athletic background, " All Brigade " became proficient as a gridiron terror. Mentally gifted as well, " Horse " could lay aside his texts early in favor of outside interests. His only worries were the barber shop and his non-reg argyle sox. Unpretentious, and ever the first to wish one well. Horse has the best wishes of all his friends for a future that ' s bound to be bright. 62 STERLING, ILLINOIS After roughing it for a year in Penn State ' s V-12 unit. Bob signed on for a hitch aboard the USS Bancroft. That first year was a hard one, but Bull solved every problem in its turn. Youngster year was fruit for our boy, save for an occasional social misfire. After second class year, though. Bob had his dragging down to a cold science and academics well in hand, so life was a happy little adventure. Bob divided his spore time among the TRIDENT as advertising manager, the golf team, for which he hit many a mean ball, and almost every known book. He ' s headed for the silent service, but whether in subs or civvies, Bob ' s final biography will be that of a distinguished and accomplished gentleman. NEW ROCHELLE, NEW YORK Herb hod his own ideas on how the system should function, based on his days with the Colonels, with their afternoon shows and quiet classroom sessions. Pro- ficient in Academics, Herb could usually be found exploring his sock, whipping out a poster for some event, or shaking his head over his " Giants. " Since " this place hasn ' t got on ice-hockey team, " he had to be contented with guard on the batt football team, left fielder on the company softbali team, and company basketball, plus working on the Class Ring Committee. Although not definitely a twenty-year man, Herb plans to moke the Engineering Corps his line of duty, if the civilian world doesn ' t call too loudly. WASHINGTON, D.C. Wes claims a variety of addresses, the permanent one being Washington, D. C, the home of fHoward Univer- sity, where Wes was in the Army ASTP program, major- ing in Electrical Engineering. Well prepared for acade- mics and with an eye for the cross country and outdoor tracks, Wes gave them their full share of attention, be- ing more than just a competitor in both. Many of Navy ' s tennis players were a target for his speed Plebe Summer, but tennis took a back seat to running when the fall arrived. Activities such as the German Club, chess, and photography claimed his free time. The future seems very bright for Wes, today, and with de- termination, courage, and high purpose he will shape a well-deserved career. F I T A T T A L I O N 63 r I T A T T A L I O N £u€icn Capanc Jr. BRISTOL, RHODE ISLAND In 1945 the Army of the United States gave up one of its foremost contenders for the little gold bars, and the Beard reported. Plebe Year was a storm, a passing parade of pre-dawn trots around the obstacle course, mad battles with the slide rule, coming around parties, and words with the Rock. Then with a grunt and a groan, Luke finally opened the door of Youngster Year, got a haircut, and started in again. The art of swimming was almost his nemesis, but Luke came through, got another haircut, and tore through Second and First class Years, leaving steam profs limp and haggard. Luke ' s musical prowess is second to none, and his tal- ents have aided materially to the successes of the NA-10 and Musical Club Shows during his stay. A great guy, a real friend, and a man in every sense of the word, Al ' s success is a sure thing. CHASE CITY, VIRGINIA Had not Sir Patrick James answered the king ' s cry of " Oh whar will I get guid sailors to sail this schippe of mine? " , Jim would certainly have been the first to vol- unteer. Dubbed the " Ancient Mariner " by his classmates, he surprised no one by donning foul weather gear, impressing a crew for his yawl, and sailing on the cold- est day of the year. He could be found giving his ail whenever " the wind doth blow, " yet, surprisingly enough, his aim is sub duty. A Virginian, Jim was wistfully dis- gusted with the five-mile limit ' s iron curtain. Voted the man with the hairline most likely to re cede, Jim intends someday to immortalize himself (with due apologies to Milton) with a sonnet entitled " On His Baldness. " IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN If the Mason-Dixon line divides the " lazy South " from the " bustling North " , Jim is from the wrong side. Hailing from about as far north as one can go in the U.S., he always seemed to be the last one safely in ranks, and usually answered reveille by turning over on the other side. Perhaps the sudden change in climate slowed him down — some, however, thought that it was because his thoughts were always in that " Baltimore Wonderland. " In Academics, he soon showed the talent worthy of a no-strain attitude, although he managed to confuse several profs, as well as his classmates with his questions and explanations. An easy-going redhead with a subtle wit, Jim should find success in his Navy career. 64 J. M £,cmy CUamh€ vu Jr. BALTIMORE, MARYLAND The Phi Gams at Johns Hopkins were quite chagrined bock in ' 45 to learn that J. H. Leroy was soon to take up residence at Club Bancroft. An ail-around man, Leroy starred Plebe Year, and remained up in the top third thereafter. True to form. Youngster Year presented its tribulations, Leroy ' s in the form of automobiles and some unsympathetic Bull profs. Lee came through, how- ever, and even managed to escape half of Youngster Cruise, a feat in itself. That he was the scourge of Navy ' s lacrosse opponents was borne out by his Inter- collegiate Championship and All-American awards. A gentleman of the old school, humorous and friendly, Lee shoves off with the best wishes of us all. SEATTLE, WASHINGTON The wandering " nomad " finally found a home when he came to Navy, after attending over thirty schools. A Navy junior, Mitch came to the Academy imbued well with the Blue and Gold. Having studied engineering for two years, he found Navy ' s academics somewhat fruity. As well as being independent, Mitch is also original, and intensely interested in the principles of machines and engineering apparatus. His reasoning ability allowed him more time away from the books, to be devoted to the LOG advertising staff and the Mechanical Engineering Club. His love of sailing caused him, at every opportunity, to participate in the yawl races. Combining an intense interest with real ability, Mitch should find success in his chosen field of engi- neering. » F I T Stanley Q. Coaper NEW YORK, NEW YORK Ever since Steam ceased to concern boilers, Stan has found the subject boring, for he was a Water Tender with forty-nine months of service behind him before Navy. Coop has fought successfully the fight of an interrupted education, entering on a Secretary of the Navy appointment directly from the Fleet. Coop has been the living proof of determination, despite wife trouble, having had only one of his past six roommates survive the four years. Lacrosse mode an outlet for Stan ' s spirit, and when the season was over, he took to batt sports with great success. Classmates will re- member Coop ' s defeat of the Russian language, when he developed the most complete three v«3rd vocabulary in Academy history, and also his refusal to frown on even the toughest day. A T T A L I O N 65 F I T A T T A L I O N t nald £. Craig SIDNEY, NEBRASKA Happy, of the long and powerful oar, dropped down one day at the University of Colorado and just for the competition of it, took the NROTC competitive examina- tions for the Naval Academy. Since arrival, Don has found time to further only a few activities started in college and high school where he played football, basketball, debated, worked on the high school annual, and did a little musical work. Specialization gripped him, as it did the rest of varsity crew, so he contributed with one of the most powerful and courageous strokes to win the Nationals in 1947 at Poughkeepsie. When he was not rowing, declaiming on Sidney, his home, or tell- ing of Phi Delta Theta life at the U. of Colorado, Don did justice to his college honorary memberships. SAG HARBOR, LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK A Long Islander, George started his nautical career early in life, naturally following it up here with swim- ming and sailing. He could usually be found either in the pool or behind a pile of books and a slipstick. Standing high academically, he merely continued his practice of hard studying from high school days, when he was class valedictorian, and from college days at Lehigh, where he studied engineering for a year. George had no OAO, and, although he was frequently seen escorting some sweet young thing around the yard on weekends, he had a notable lack of girl-trouble. The easy-mannered way in which he moved over the aca- demic hurdles here predict a successful future for him, whatever the field. CHICAGO, ILLINOIS Enthusiastic and spirited. Jack was only slightly dis- turbed in pursuit of wings by threats of a seeing eye dog. Jack used that threat to keep the inner man from relinquishing the day to the academics. He was gen- erally happily unaware that his views on the attire of the well-dressed midshipman were at momentary odds with those of the OD. A bachelor of circumstances, Jack maintains that his explorations hold a claim of sorts on history— four year ' s blind dates produced noth- ing but the best. At other moments. Jack was found equally at ease climbing rope, playing handball, or humming noises. If but half his investment in life is returned he will find life always a smile, always a thought, always a friend. 66 . GULFPORT, MISSISSIPPI Horace, " Dizzy " to us, is a rabid Rebel from the very deep South. Class valedictorian at Marion Institute, " Diz " arrived at Navy and distinguished himself by winning the plebe 155 pound boxing championship. He was very active in intramural sports, and won his " 1949 " in battalion boxing and fencing. " Diz " might have been called a Dago slash, for his proficiency in Spanish was amazing. Many Latin-American midshipmen will testify that h e spoke like a native. Naturally, he was a member of the Foreign Language Club. His interests were varied, the favorite being color photography, in which field he has won prizes. " Dizzy " hopes to become a submariner when he joins the fleet— and all hands will be wishing him the best of luck. Chester £. Diiln RAWLINS, WYOMING Chet came from that faraway state of Wyoming, al- though he would readily claim Nebraska if given half a chance, and was a junior at Grinnel College, Iowa, in civil engineering, when he decided to change from civvies to the Navy blue. With his college background, Chet was able to navigate all the formidable rivers without any difficulty, supplementing his book learning with very creditable performances in varsity, plebe, and intramural sports, and it was a rarity when he failed to finish among the top three in company cross country and steeplechase. In the winter, he missed most those famous Wyoming snowstorms which had allowed him to ski, toboggan, and the like. Upon graduation, Chet has his eye on the air corps, although it is rumored that he would accept the Supply Corps if offered. £ntMU U). Ditiman NORTH MANCHESTER, INDIANA Leaving the banks of the Wabash, Lou came to the banks of the Severn with a desire to excel. His friendli- ness and good nature won many friends, and soon Lucrative Louie ' s was the place where the crowd gath- ered. Twice we have crowded into Louie ' s hole to say goodbye and give our best wishes to our friends who were shortly to be USN " retired " , for Skip Eccles and John Hemphill will remain always a part of ' 49. Good fellowship followed Louie and his gang into Baltimore on the immortal football game weekends. When not busy just being a swell guy, the Dill took up wrestling, lacrosse, and football in their respective seasons. His merit is shown by that long string of letters and numerals on the back of his B-robe. Taking his athletic adroitness and good nature into the fleet, Louie is headed for a successful career. F I T A T T A L I O N 67 ANOKA, MINNESOTA Bob Douglass claimed he ' d answer to any nickname, as long as it promised a call to dinner. The most favorite handle accumulated seems to be Duff which generally got the desired result. He went briefly to the University of Minnesota and served in the Navy for ten months before entering the Naval Academy. High school foot- ball and track placed Doug as a valued member of various company and batt sports, but his favorite was the Softball team, where he gladly spared minutes from golf, which was his forte for recreation. Academics never bothered him, and the sack beckoned during many a study period. Doug is not particular as yet about the branch of service he wants or the type of ship, but his addition as an officer will be that of a serious worker. F I T A T T A L I O N SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA Roger hardly ever needed more than a pep-rally to drag out a Bear-inscribed flag of California. Coming in on a Reserve Fleet Appointment, he put in long diligent hours on academics that soon pushed him to the top. He found soccer, a game which captured his fancy upon arrival, an outlet in fall sports. In the winter his locale- sport, swimming, took precedence, and, although man- aging the batt sport, he still took time off to race in a few meets himself. Roger claimed through four years that he was a Red Mike, opposed to dragging, but when the occasion or a particularly attractive drag captured his fancy, he was hard-pressed to explain the departure from original theory. He lists no special field of service, but Pacific Coast duty heads preference list. sf on §1. eilis CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA Two uncles, one cousin, and a brother in the Navy might not hove influenced Bot ' s coming to the Academy, but as a Naval Reserve in 1944 he hod his eye on Navy. Once arrived, he started right in to get as much out of it as he could. Although Plebe Year slightly hampered it. Youngster Cruise saw Bot ' s career fully launched, and the remainder of Youngster Year en- hanced his reputation as an operator. Although settling down to the more serious things in life Second Class Year, Bot still found time to drag and enjoy life. He took active part in company soccer and football, as well as company " deals " . Whether in Navy blue or civvies, his knack for getting on with people will make for success. 68 ARDMORE, OKLAHOMA " Carefree " described this lad from the land of oil, Indians, and jackrabbits— " Oklahoma! " Never a worry in the world, never a frown, and always with a smile or witticism, " Tish " Ellis was the type who got along with everyone. Dick took the entrance exams in high school but managed to put in a stretch at boot camp while waiting to see if his efforts would get him to Navy. Here he turned his athletic prowess and scrappiness to company soccer, and water polo. Dick was a firm be- liever in using weekends for pleasure and no weekend found him studying or without a drag. Dick endorsed Newton ' s ideas on the conservation of energy. He has saved enough energy while at Navy to assure his suc- cess in later life and with his wonderful personality, " How could he lose? " TUCSON, ARIZONA Though a native of New Jersey, Bob defended the climate of his Western haven with a vigor, maintaining that " At least, it ' s a dry heat. " Having lived so close to Spanish-speaking Mexico, he tackled Dago with a zest, and joined the Foreign Language Club. Bob has surprised even himself with his desire for the life afloat, and always welcomed the chance to show a drag the sea-faring life. He found it difficult to apportion time among his many interests, both athletic and cultural. A competent " pin-pusher, " he contributed to two batt fencing championships. His standard contention on marriage is that while married men may have their better halves, single men have better quarters. Bob looks forward to a pair of gold wings to accompany his Victory Ribbon. F I T feSK ROCK SPRINGS, WYOMING Another product of NAPS, Bainbridge, Jim spent eighteen months in the Navy before coming to Navy Tech, and thus was well acquainted with the life of a sailor. Being a very conscientious student, Jim always did well in the classroom. Chemistry and electronics fascinated him, although the conjugation of Spanish verbs was quite beyond him. Although he had an OAO back in his hometown in Wyoming, Jim never missed a chance to drag, and his uncanny knack of consistently dragging queens aroused the envy of his classmates. His interest in the Navy coupled with his desire to as- sume responsibility should carry him a long way towards his ambition— the submarine service. A T T A L I O N 69 F I T A T T A L I O N HAMMOND, LOUISIANA " H.P. " ' s pre-naval education got off to a good start with a three year course at Culver, and his outstanding academic record here was proof of his genuine desire and ability to excel scholastically. For athletics, he turned to wrestling, and was a capable member of the JV squad, as well as being prominent in batt wrestling and company sports. Far from being a woman hater, H.P. maintained a rather lively interest in the fairer sex, as was attested by his continual large volume of mail from female admirers. Among his major extra- curricular interests were an avid interest in bayou boat- ing, photography, and collecting popular or classical records. We who knew him want to wish H.P. the luck and success he deserves in the future. BUFFALO, NEW YORK Every inch an Irishman, and proud of it. Bob came to the Academy right out of high school with definite ambitions and more than ample ability to fulfill them. After earning valedictory honors at high school, he entered Navy with a grim determination, which was later reflected in his fine showing, especially in Skinny and Math. Perhaps the single accomplishment of his Academy career which gave Bob the most pride was the way he moulded his slender frame, through constant exercise, to the build of a modest Hercules. Although handball proved to be his favorite diversion in the line of sports. Bob was what one would call an all- around athlete. While here, he enjoyed football trips and cruises most, chieflly because of the amount of lib- erty given. Philip W. 7 or«ffc« MORROW, GEORGIA With a year of college life behind him, the " Colonel " brought to Navy a note of carefreeness envied by all, and, after a slow start, became a solid proponent of the occupation of dragging. His pet stories usually cen- tered around his exploits with shotguns in Georgia, with the meal of roast duck or quail as the climax. His claims for notoriety came from his oft-used expression, " They ' ve come home again, " meaning another of his uncanny small or grand slams was on the way, and his ability to discuss sports and politics. His preference for duty seemed to lean toward submarines, but what- ever field of endeavor finally claims him, his personality will undoubtedly place him well on the road to success. 4 70 AAINERAL WELLS, TEXAS Texas never need worry about her prowess as long as she keeps producing men like Jim. He came to the Academy after a year in the Navy, which he entered during his sophomore year at Texas Tech. By the end of Youngster Year, some of that Texas dust had been shaken from his boots, and Jim took to the sea, win- ning his N on the dinghy sailing team. Few hops failed to find him dragging some young lovely, and many a Sunday night has been spent by some of us lesser mor- tals listening to Jim ' s version of how he does it. Always able to take a ribbing, this long, lanky Texan has given his friends many a laugh, but " pahdner, don ' evah cross him up, ' cause his little black-eyed susan is liable to start talkin ' , and that ain ' t healthy. " EAST CLEVELAND, OHIO Choosing Don to edit our LUCKY BAG was a happy in- spiration, for, demonstrating academic brilliance, he combined diligence and endless patience to achieve its present standard of excellence. A background of four years of continuous success started in his home town at Shaw High School and continued at Case Institute of Technology, where he majored in Metallurgical Engi- neering and became an SAE. He entered the Naval Academy on a Secretary of the Navy appoint.ment after two years in the Naval Reserve. The mammoth task of year book editor gave him almost no time for personal hobbies. That he never complained is a clue to a career that will ever welcome men of his calibre. FORT WORTH, TEXAS One of 1949 ' s younger entries. Smiley has been wear- ing stars on his collar since Plebe Year. His high school background in Fort Worth plus a year and a half as a Chemical Engineering major at Yale University was the major contributing factor to his ease at understanding any and all subjects thrown at him. He has been more than a little interested in one specialty, German, and has been on the after-dinner speaking list of m any a German Club meeting. Much free time was spent in using a Yawl Command acquired Plebe Year or engag- ing in batt and company athletics. Preferred duty as far OS this converted landlubber is concerned is with the submarines. F I T A T T A L I O N 71 F I S T A T T A L I O N John . Qawtland NEW YORK, NEW YORK The proverbial smiling Irishman has nothing on our boy. Spike. His propitious smile brightened the halls of Bancroft, and his " I never met a man I didn ' t like " attitude kept the welcome mot out for him. O ' Malley ' s naval career began in Gunner ' s Mate School a year before he heeded the call of the Severn via fleet ap- pointment. Among J.P. ' s numerous achievements was his making number one coxswain of Ail-American crew of 1947. No mean slip-stick operator, he held his own in academics with little difficulty. Usually quiet and un- assuming, Spike was a package of dynamite yearning for wings. They ' ll be his, for with his quick mind, and wealth of common sense, he will never fail in whatever he should undertake. WASHINGTON, D.C. An alumnus of Mercersburg Academy, Bernie come to USNA directly from Bullis Prep. Despite this military background, he harbored a secret desire to follow in his father ' s footsteps as a lawyer, and was mildly sur- prised, but hardly disappointed to find himself gradu- ated from the Naval Academy. His consuming passion was sports, and his versatility as an athlete afforded him the opportunity for active as well as passive par- ticipation. Possessor of a real appreciation of life and no end of self control, " Gee Whiz " has ever been an inspiration to his more impetuous friends. Add to these his " hope for the best, but take what comes " attitude, and there is the perfect formula for getting along at Navy. n wtnan £,. Qihsnn SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA Draped with one of the best pair of vocal chords in California, Hoot assailed the Naval Academy in June 1945. This former high school track star has given the musical clubs the benefit of on omnipresent tenor. The high spot of many a Chapel service resulted from Norm ' s songs. Many things musical and dramatic, including a serious devotion to concertizing on the piano, took most of his time. He found time to row on the plebe crew and, of the company sports, soccer was his favorite. He joined the other photo-bugs in indiscriminate snapping of the fairer sex pictures of whom adorned his locker and scrapbooks. Our type of life is second nature to Hoot, for he came into this world as a Navy Junior in Manila. 72 I 1 MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE After Webb School in middle Tennessee, where he captained the football and baseball teams, and majored in Latin, Bob went to Southwestern, then the Navy, and later Vanderbilt as a vet. Bob used to spend his summers in the Great Smokies, where he acquired a taste for trout fishing and mountain climbing. He achieved dis- tinction Plebe Year as an accumulator of demos (almost wound up with the anchor), Youngster Year as a charter member of the flying squadron, and Second Class Year as the recipient of innumerable CIS chits (almost as many as his wives). Unlike most. Bob liked the cruises and anticipates European duty. John €V. rc wM OAK PARK, ILLINOIS John ' s years at the Naval Academy were marked by a seriousness and maturity that helped him to excel aca- demically. He became Business Manager of the Masque- raders and Combined Musical Clubs, and served both the TRIDENT and LOG. At high schools in Oak Park, Illinois, Towson, Maryland, and Bloomington, Illinois, he laid the keel of his career, finding time for basketball, baseball, tennis and cross-country. While in the Navy he studied at DePauw, Columbia, and Wabash, finding time to play football, work on a magazine, and become president of the Wabash chapter of Phi Delta Theta. When not laboring for magazine or business staff, he played company soccer. A favorite recreation was a yawl command, most enjoyed when dragging the OAO from Indiana. CORONADO, CALIFORNIA This not too zealous scholar entered the Academy after a happy " social sophomore " year at NAPS. In the shower, although he fancied himself as a Caruso, he usually sounded as if he were hunting for the lost chord. In sports, football was his main interest. His yen for travel and meeting people was given full indulgence on cruises, and he gained a background of knowledge of both the social life and liquid refreshments to be found at home and abroad. With his winning smile and the twinkle in his eye, Dick could easily please the girls, but he didn ' t capitalize on these assets too often. Although he didn ' t often dazzle the profs with his knowl- edge, he always has and always will star in common sense. r I T A T T A L I O N 73 F I T A T T A L I O N FROSTBURG, MARYLAND Walt came to the Academy from the plains of Maryland after three years in Naval Aviation. Although he man- aged to make the grade in academics, he barely held his own in his frequent encounters with the Executive Department. A staunch advocate of dragging, Walt managed to be seen with his share of queens but had some bad luck with blind drags. He will always be remembered for his readiness to fix a classmate up with a date from that well thumbed address book. Who can doubt his good intentions, even if a few did turn out to be bricks? His most enjoyable days as a Mid- shipman were spent on the summer cruises, and Walt will always be happy as long as there is an enchanting new port for his ship to enter. ZEIGLER, ILLINOIS Whether it be studying, competing, making models as a hobby, or eating. Bill does everything well. Athletic- ally, he brought all sports letters from Zeigler Com- m unity High, and found full ploy in work on batt foot- ball, company soccer, and basketball teams. Academic- ally he carried on with the work that before had earned him three scholarship awards, despite the lack of any college experience. Bill ' s hobbies, models and photog- raphy, took his spare time, and the halls zoomed with jet propelled midget racers while the pool became a target for boats that actually floated. His locker was often inspected for camera shots of the fairer sex that added to both photographic and photogenic interest throughout his four years. With all these hobbies, he managed to find the time to drag. 2 oifl«iM m. Harlan FRANKLIN, LOUISIANA A deep " Luz-iana " drawl and rich baritone voice iden- tified our Don, who came to Navy after a tour in V-12 at Georgia Tech and previous attendance at S.L.I. His talent was noticed early, and he received regular voice training which he u tilized in the high school glee club, and later at Navy as a baritone soloist for both the Glee Club and the NA-10. During Plebe Year the Musi- cal Clubs enlisted him for their show, and continued to do so for performances each year. Although his first love was music, Mike found time to captain the sound gang. In addition to maintaining that academics are a snare and a delusion, therefore deserving no strain, Don possesses a keen sense of humor and subtle wit- qualities which augment a very likeable personality. 1 74 ' ony SUPERIOR, WISCONSIN Hogie reluctantly left Wisconsin, where he was well entrenched after education in Lawrence College, Mar- quette University, and high school in Superior, to try his hand as a Midshipman. Though he found little of his favorite sport, ice hockey, he worked right in with the academics, which were the same in any climate. With the three interests, engineering, sailing, and ath- letics as a focal point, Hogie ploughed right into Academy life, finding time to take an active part in the Math Club, Mechanical Engineering Club, and the Boat Club, as well as giving a hand on victorious com- pany sports, chiefly volley ball and handball. He ap- plied the brilliance that had earned him scholarships in high school and college, majoring in the Engineering that is his real interest in the Navy. LA JOLLA, CALIFORNIA An eloquent discourse in behalf of California, emanat- ing from somewhere behind a nose, is a sure indication that Hotch is busy reviving his second favorite subject. A perennial advocate of the leisurely life. Chuck follows his creed in meticulously avoiding exercise and fresh air as the most dangerous influences on a man ' s well- being. Despite these theories. Chuck managed to play lacrosse and soccer. His string of stories received a large addition on cruise where Chuckles became almost Twainian in his role of innocence abroad. Hotch leaves a trail of unrepressed enthusiasm for life, the cut of a steady if unapparent dependability, and a group of friends limited only by the circle of his acquaintances. WASHINGTON, PENNSYLVANIA To hold the interest of the " Bear " , one had only to talk of football or the Marine Corps. He came to Navy with twenty-two months as a gyrene pfc. tucked under his belt, and immediately set out to make plenty of com- petition for linesmen of opponents ' football teams. When he wasn ' t actually playing, it was a sure bet that he was passing on some of the lore of the game to less endowed classmates. " Bear " never took a strain with the academics that plagued the rest of us, and liked nothing better than to give his sack a workout. Al- though he broke many hearts, seldom did he drag here in Crabtown— too much work to keep within the sched- ules. Needless to say, the Corps is going to see a lot more of the " Bear " during the next twenty years. F I T A T T A L I O N i 75 F I T A T T A L I O N ytBwnes §i. JuMnehcr RiVEREDGE, NEW JERSEY Junk was one of the stalwarts whom spring found trudg- ing toward Hubbard Hall and the crew shells, where he always pulled more than his own weight. Junk put the same spirit into the Academy as he did into crew. Previous to entry, he had put a year into the Navy, winning a. fleet appointment. Studies since then have not been easy without a college background, yet Junk has never had to worry about borderline-anxiety; this freedom was due mostly to a quick mind and great powers of concentration. Studies never interfered with his having a good time at the Academy, and his free time was spent in dragging, playing company sports, and that springtime trek to Hubbard for Varsity Crew. NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK After the comparatively carefree life at NAPS, Dan found Plebe Year at the Academy rather restrictive, but he tried to forget the " happy days " and sought an outlet for his varied talents on the soccer field and in the wrestling loft. With three years of civil engineering at Bucknell University behind him, he found no great need to exert himself at his studies and was a member of the art and literary staffs of the LOG and TRIDENT magazines. A true lover of the arts, he was always ready to bring a new symphonic record to the attention of his classmates. Women, as well as music, occupied his free time, and he was never one to miss a weekend. We wish Dan the best of luck for the coming years. Dawid S. Mendri€h ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA Dave, a proud Swede originally from that land of the sky blue waters, Minnesota, came to us through Bullis, with two appointments as a result of his scholastic abil- ity. He could swing a tennis raquet almost before he could walk, and ever since has spent much time on the courts. At Navy, he turned to boxing, with fine results. When it came to drags, Dave believed in qual- ity, not quantity; and heads turned as he and his lovely lassies stepped out under Dahlgren ' s soft lights. His ready wit, wisdom, and smile were always welcome at any gathering. Dave was always in the van, setting the example, and taking the consequences. We wish him luck— may he go far with his wings of gold. 76 I I il PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA Col collected nicknames as fast as he did friends, most of them in athletics. Fall found him a varsity quarter- back on the football team, living up to expectations established at Bucknell. The baseball diamond got Cal, after spring football, to ploy a highly effective game as an outfielder and place hitter, rounding out the year of constant athletic activity. He first embarked on his athletic career as a three letter man at Central Catholic High. In the V-12 program at Bucknell, he lettered in football and baseball. At the Academy, Cal found athletics and studies combined a tough combination, and persistent effort on limited time was called into play; still he found time to be a varied and frequent enthusiast of dragging. NORFOLK, VIRGINIA Called Emmet by his family. Archer emerged from a year at Harvard with his present nickname of Archie. Being a Navy Junior, Archie naturally came to the Naval Academy. Although not starring as an athlete here, every season he struggled with company sports, particularly soccer. Socially, curio collecting, sock time, and photography v on Archie away from women and earned him the title of " Red Mike No. 1 " . He also has the distinction of being the only midshipman to sell something to a storekeeper in Panama. Archie ' s unfail- ing good nature and willingness to help his classmates were well known during his Academy days and will be a great asset to him in his career as a naval officer. BREMERTON, WASHINGTON Dick ' s three year residence in Missouri at Kemper Mili- tary School and Central College couldn ' t put the mules before the mountains. Given ten seconds (he ' d take hours) to summarize the beauties of the " Mighty Pacific Northwest, " he would prove that mule shoes ran a poor second to hob-nailed hiking boots. Possessing a broad— and ever increasing— brow on which responsibil- ity could welcomely fall, Dick ' s major efforts were as Director of the Public Relations Committee and As- sociate Editor of the LOG. Through these and other activities free time and many study hours vanished. Then there were championship batt football and other intramural teams. Lost, but not least, a flair for writing letters plus a love of the unconventional often combined to produce interesting week-ends— a definite phase of his Acodemia. I T A T T A L I O N 77 F I T A T T A L I O N AMERY, WISCONSIN Walt, well started on a Naval career before coming to the Academy, served in the Pacific as an Ensign after graduation in the Naval Reserve from North Carolina. There he lettered in football, captained the boxing team as Southern Conference light-heavy weight champion in 1944 and 1945, and was elected to the freshman hon- orary fraternity, Phi Eta Sigma. At the Academy, Walt concentrated on boxing, winning his letter Plebe Year in the light-heavy division, and substantially adding to Academy boxing by coaching midshipmen and Navy Juniors. One of the first men in 1949 to obtain a Yawl Command, Walt could often be found racing or drag- ging. He is an exacting worker, intelligent, serious, and industrious. DES MOINES, IOWA John came to Navy Tech after spending a tumultous year at NAPS, Bainbridge. His only nemesis of mid- shipman days was Plebe Steam. " Those lines just never seem to meet on my paper. " Knute will long be re- membered by all as the " bouncing infantryman " who always made his presence felt at a P-rade. Cruises and football trips proved to be the highlights of his Academy days. Whether it was " chug-a-lugging " Hatuey in Guantanamo, marveling at the beauty of Swedish women in Stockholm, dancing with a duchess in London, tossing pennies to the native children in Panama, or being entertained at the home of a British diplomat in Portsmouth, Knute was always having one big time. John M i«a€h SARASOTA, FLORIDA Coming to us from deep in the heart of Dixie, Jack never tired of exalting his hometown Sarasota. A four- letter man in high school, he continued his achievements at the University of Florida where he was a Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Before entering the Naval Academy, Jack spent three y ears in the wartime Naval Aviation program. During his Youngster Year, he played Junior Varsity Football but unfortunately injuries forced him to sideline this sport. Jack ' s tall stories go well with his two hobbies, fishing and hunting; and his winning smile and easy- going nature go well with his tall stories. After gradua- tion, he plans to resume his career in Naval Aviation. 78 i Gti9 . ruMcqef ESTES PARK, COLORADO After graduation from high school, where he had been state student council vice president. Otto felt the ir- resistible lure of the Navy. Two years as a ROTC at Colorado U and Colorado College convinced him that " a sailor ' s life is the only life. " At the Academy, Otto had utilized his mellow baritone as a member of the Glee Club and in the Musical Club shows. During the warmer months, one could usually find him " laying on the starboard oar " in one of the J-V shells, but for his greatest pleasure, give him a pair of skis and a snow- covered mountain. A confirmed philogynist, he has rarely missed a dragging weekend. And why not? What wo- man could resist that quick, ear-to-ear grin that has won him so many friends? BUFFALO, NEW YORK An outline of Dave ' s life at the Academy is simple: three letters a day and a beautiful drag every weekend. Occasionally, however, he mixed up his dotes and two girls or none at all showed up. When summer leave finally came around, most of us hit the trail for home, but Dave always spent three weeks with a girlfriend in the Southwest or Washington before going home. He maintained an active and serious interest in sports throughout his four years, but his long standing member- ship on the excused squad denied him actual participa- tion. In spite of an injury to his knee he continued as manager of the track team. Dave would like a Navy fighter plane in his future. IRON MOUNTAIN, MICHIGAN How he reacted academically during his year at Notre Dame, we don ' t know. Here at Navy, however, he had the reputation of " never taking a strain, " an attitude that was put to the test after one exam that was fol- lowed by a regret and repent period. The sigh of relief that followed his looking at the grades blasted all his good resolutions. Many study hours found him deep in his managerial duties of compiling six or seven copies of the results of a sailing meet. Afternoons of non-sailing or non-dragging weekends found him tour- ing the golf course across the river. Nor did his interest and prowess end here. As a member of a championship company steeplechase team, he always whisked across the line before the winner of the next race. I w I T A T T A L I O N 79 Dawid m. £aiham BOWIE, TEXAS After much deliberation whether or not to leave his " Lone Star State, " Dave finally packed his Texas map and almcnac, bade farev ell to his OAO, and came to Navy via Marion Institute and Texas A M, where he had spent a year in civil engineering. In his spare time he played football, basketball, soccer, tennis, or sailed. He earned the title " Mighty Mite, " and won his NA playing on the championship one hundred fifty pound footboll team. Inclement weather found Dave in the dork room developing or printing pictures, turning an ear to classicol music as transcribed short-wave by the BBC, or getting the latest dope on the recent changes in the stock markets. His perseverance and diligence have been an inspiration and will carry him far. F I T A T T A L I O N DETROIT, MICHIGAN Tom attended Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, where he became a member of the Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity, and then went on to Illinois Tech in Chicago as a mem- ber of the Naval Reserve before winning his appoint- ment to the Academy. He immediately made himself conspicious as a champion backstroker and began a long and successful career with the swimming team. He gathered N-stors and led the swimmers during his First Class Year when he captained the team. The future looks bright for Tom, who, with his inherent spirit of loyalty, optimism, and determination, has set his sights on a career in Naval Aviation. HARRISBURG, PENNSYLVANIA Dusting the salt of Bainbridge boots off his shoulders. King Benny strode into the Naval Academy one blister- ing August day in 1945. His inexhaustible energy and friendliness started immediately to win him many friends. One of the " Big Dealers " of the company, Jack has organized many of our memorable parties and has always done a good job. Having excelled in athletics at Mercersburg, Ben was a natural on the Softball diamond, and as manager-star of our championship cross-country team. Flash was in his glory. Quite the Big Gun with the women. King B. always dragged queens, and the blinds he fixed up for his buddies have been something to talk about. A grand guy, we know Jack ' s career will be successful. 80 COWEN, WEST VIRGINIA With but a week between him and those " wings of tin " as a " Junior Birdman, " Les traded the wild blue yonder for the dark blue blunder, as he thought Plebe Year. Though the galloping pencils of experienced plebe draftsmen had him groping for a while, since he con- quered that, none of the academic lordlings have daunt- ed our hero. Three years with the 150-pound football team gave tangible evidence of his spirit. He was always an irrepressible aggressor when faced by an obstacle —his drags agreed to that. The women went for him almost as much as he went for them, even though he someday will have trouble if he gets his Lotharian sig- nals mixed. West Virginia has given us a genuinely sincere and roguish personality who has lightened our days here and will enrich the service. POUGHKEEPSIE, NEW YORK Having lived for eighteen years at the front gate of Vossar, Johnny came to the Academy case-hardened in the conviction that " Women are a snare etc. " , and for the next four years he provided his friends with drags. John gathered enough wisdom at Rensselaer and Cornell to stay about three lessons ahead of the instructors. His editorial ability and fluent pen con- tributed a great deal to the success of the LOG. Al- though this work at times took every available hour, John still had enough vim and vigor to excel in the intramural sports field with soccer, football, and soft- ball. Thus, John the romantic, the wise, and the agile completed four years. With his many interests, overall ability and ambition, his success in life is guaranteed. Joseph ' Mt. Ml tqntnasini BROOKLYN, NEW YORK " Joesnuffy " came to Navy from the sandy beaches and gay nightclubs of his home, via the Navy Air Corps, still as a college boy at heart. His main interest was naturally aviation, so attending classes was nothing but an unavoidable catastrophe in his path to eventually obtaining those wings of gold. A serious minded indi- vidual, Joe believed in the regulations, although he ran afoul of them. He didn ' t drag often, but he was no Red Mike; he was just particular about his women, and wasn ' t quite able to find the dream of his life. There was still hope, though— beauty plus money preferred. Summer cruises to foreign ports always seemed to be fruitful hunting grounds for him, so he must just be wait- ing for graduation and some foreign duty to roll around. F I T A T T A L I O N 81 F I T A T T A L I O N !.T ' i «? v " TEXARKANA, ARKANSAS Leaving his native land for a crack at the Academy, High came North for his first look at Yankeeland. Here he participated in tennis, soccer, and gym, but sack time took precedence over all of these. Photography took a great portion of his time here, and we frequently met him, developer, printing paper, and hypo in hand, happily emerging from the darkroom. His locker door, covered with smiling beauties, bore the proof of his ac- complishments both in photography and dragging. His mastery of bridge never equalled his skill with girls, and he often narrowly escaped death at the hands of on overtrumped partner. His ability to get along with any- one promises to carry him far in any path he might choose. LINCOLN, NEBRASKA Women never found a place in Don ' s heart. Progress was his passion, and he consistently defended every measure, public, private, academic, or otherwise, that was liberal and progressive. Not the least of his in- terests were history and political science, and he is well remembered as having stumped the professors on points of history. His sports preferences were golf and tennis, in accord with his spirit of individualism. Besides sports, music occupied a share of leisure time. A particular in- terest in the classics found a companion yen in the desire to play bridge. For dependability and accommodation, this friendly, hospitable Westerner is unexcelled. I NEW YORK, NEW YORK Chuck is one of the Academy ' s relative minority of men of no previous college background. For all that. Chuck ' s seriousness has taken academics in stride during his four-year tenure of Midshipmanhood. He entered the Academy on a substantiating examination after point- ing most of his life toward a Navy career. Twenty years waiting to get in the Navy; at least twenty more in it. His chosen line is the Naval Air Corps, an interest that blossomed at the Academy in the many models that he had time to build. He spent high school free time in intramural sports, showing the same interest here in company gym, soccer, and batt lacrosse and bowling. Spare conversational moments always turned to base- ball. " Rabid Fan " , Dink! P. S.— His locker door sported another love, an Academy OAO. 82 GREENWOOD, MASSACHUSETTS After two and a half years ' service in NROTC at Tufts and Holy Cross, Mac came to the Trade School. With a desire to learn his trade, " The DoufF " applied himself industriously to the books and few ore the professors who haven ' t heard his out-spoken views on the system. On the athletic side, Mac participated in squash, cross- country, and sailing. His greatest interest, however, was the Navy. His most intimate friends swore that when he spoke of it, his skin took on a bluish hue, and little gold lights gleamed through his eyes. Mac yearns for the pig boats, for which he is made to order. Stable, steadfast, industrious, and loyal, Gerry always will be a great asset to any organization. DAHLGREN, VIRGINIA If Robert E. Lee were still alive, he could find no stauncher supporter than Charlie. This Marine Junior is an ardent history student who knows the truth about the war between the states. Starting his military career dur- ing high school at St. John ' s Military Academy, Charlie became a crack shot and excellent football player. A hard fighter, he proved an asset to the company soccer and pushball teams, and, in his second class year, added his skill to the Navy ' s " mighty mites. " Studies and con- duct reports never bothered Charlie. An ardent liberty hound, he never let a dragging weekend got to waste. As " Forty-nine " joins the Fleet, the Marine Corps will de- clare a holiday in honor of its latest addition, a man who still thinks reveille is at 0645. yanB4f9 tV. mtMihenuf EL DORADO, ARKANSAS Jim, one of the few remaining examples of a real South- ern Gentleman, came to Navy four years ago, a carefree college lad, carrying only a passive interest in the more serious things of life. He then proceeded to show the boys that there was an easy way to do everything, and for two years Jim read magazines and talked about those happy days in Arkansas, while the rest of us stud- ied. After a few minor scares from the Academic De- partments, however, he decided to work, and he proved then that he could conquer any situation. Jim will long be remembered for his unusual ability to make anyone laugh anytime, and was in his element on summer cruises where his ability to meet and mix with all types of people made him an outstanding representative of our flag. F I T A T T A L I O N 83 F I T A T T A L I O N Wm. 2). m€ ' garlane, Jr. GRAHAM, TEXAS Readily identifiable by his large grin and twinkling toes, Mac made his bid for nautical glory with a back- ground of bronc busting, western wisdom gleaned from nights around the chuck wagon, and an amazing capac- ity for windswept women to help him over the rough spots. A true Texan, Mac found his bland outlook and engaging personality real assets towards making him a serious threat for the title of Brigade Locker Boy— 1949. A glimpse of gold wings brings a mist into Mac ' s eyes, for he intends to spend a good portion of his Naval career at somewhere above ten thousand feet. A grand guy to know and live with, Mac will undoubted- ly make the Navy a less restful, but decidedly more pleasant place for us all. jm H| ' 1 H f9 M ' 1 J m MARION, OHIO Plebe year found Mac adjusting old ideas and opin- ions. Perhaps the one that underwent the greatest revision was that the slide rule could be of little use. We fully affirm his proficiency in the use of the slide rule as well as all else. When not working on the LUCKY BAG, Mac could be found giving his all for company gym or touch football, where his sincere spirit and ath- letic prowess were invaluable assets. Mac ' s daily quota of perfumed letters from his home state presented con- stant evidence of feminine interest, but his first and last love was Naval Aviation. To reach his goal, Mac had a fixed sense of determination, an abundant sense of humor, and a spirit of true friendliness — few can ask for more. HONOLULU, T. H. Boasting Honolulu as his birth place and insisting that Navy juniors are people, Ed came to us straight out of NAPS. A symposium of Mac would show him hanging from a horizontal bar by his feet with a Speed Graphic in one hand and a tennis racket in the other. As a bar man he has proven a mainstay on our plebe and varsity gym teams, and over the years his tennis game has netted him several awards. His most formidable contribution to Severn Tech has been made as official photographer for our many publications. " Pat " is of that old Navy line and intends to enter the submarine service and be as fine an officer as his dad. 84 BURLINGTON, VERMONT " Jasper ' s " first inkling of Navy Tech came to him at Phillips Andover Academy, where one Skip Eccles, his roommate, was able to convince Met that the Naval Academy was definitely the best of all possible worlds. Imbued with the spirit, Met hastened to Middlebury and later to M.I.T., whence he wandered into USNA. For the last four years, Jasper has been battering friend and foe with his lacrosse stick, dislocating limbs on the rings in MacDonough Hall, and earning innumerable numerals, letters and bruises. As for the future. Met casts an approving eye on the Construction Corps— those who have seen him shrug off Physics and Math know that his qualifications are excellent. KANSAS CITY, KANSAS Even when fo rced to run from one of Harry ' s models, everyone found it hard to avoid his laughter, for a more exuberant spirit does not exist. Wholehearted liking at the Naval Academy naturally followed previous accept- ance in high school and college. He took Electrical Engineering first at the Kansas City, Kansas, Junior Col- lege, and later in the V-5 program at Park College in Parkville, Missouri, earning a place in the National Ser- vice APO fraternity. A blonde lady who often graced the Academy took Harry from the Model Club or the German Club, of which he was secretary, on weekends. Week days he spent in working for company and batt athletics, included one championship volley ball club. Harry looks for his future in the air. F I T A T T A L I O N John tt. middleton BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA Johnny— Birmingham ' s apo logy to civilization— was al- ways on the go; from formation to his sack, or from his sack to the Wardroom Mess! John always managed to take things in his stride, which sometimes included car- rying a rifle around the drill field. Raised in Alabama, he completed his schooling in Ramsey High School and spent one year at NAPS. While here, he dabbled in photography, was on the reception committee, the Var- sity Pistol Squad, and even started to take piano lessons. Athletically he confied himself to company sports, but he managed to spend at least one season in every one of them. John leaves the Naval Academy with many nostalgic memories, and looks forward to greater oppor- tunities and successes as a Naval officer. 85 F I T A T T A L I O N MARTINSVILLE, VIRGINIA From the hills of Virginia come two things of note: moonshine and Minter. A strong exponent of the theory that haste makes waste, and ulcers. Bob long ago de- cided that no haste and no ulcers could possibly result from golf, and developed into a first-rate golfer. The plebe and varsity squads kept him busy during the spring, and managing the Batt team absorbed his efForfs in the fall. One of his outstanding characteristics is his tenacity of purpose, which has marked his course through his entire cruise at Navy. Strictly a fly-boy at heart, R.O. will not be one to dally with sea duty any longer than necessary. He and his OAO have a standing date with the future, and may it be a bright and happy one for them both. CawBwad C. (tnitlcr, Jr. NAZARETH, PENNSYLVANIA Bud or C-Squared, as the double initial dubbed him, entered on a fleet appointment, and brought with him an avid interest in liberal arts. Throughout four years at the Naval Academy he has demonstrated that interest by cartoons in the Partch manner for the LOG and TRIDENT CALENDAR. He applied his academic bent to perfecting one of the Academy ' s more serious games of bridge. Though he insisted that his real devotion was to the Radiator Squad and the game of bridge, com- pany sports found him ready and willing. Possessed of an argumentative mind. Bud would discuss anything. He edited his school paper and at Blair Academy he did more paper and year book chores. He leaves the Naval Academy uncertain as to desire for duty. rloxffs g. miller BESSEMER, ALABAMA " Let me tell you about the time . . ., " was Rip ' s intro- duction to many a tale of intrigue and pleasure. His wild stories, told in the language of the South are pre- eminent. Never cracking a book. Rip found studies a breeze. In contrast to his toleration of the Academic Department, Rip had a definite antipathy for the Execu- tive Department. His statements were masterpieces and won the praise of many an Executive Officer. It was only natural, with a magnificent physique and a fight- ing heart, that Rip should be an aggressive boxer and a not too gentle grid linesman. To say that Rip was a popular man at the Academy would be an understate- ment. He is a man ' s man, respected by his acquaint- ances and endeared to his friends. 86 OAK HILL, OHIO Hal, who came from the small town of Oak Hill, set aside for a while his dreams of a small cottage and fire place to join the Navy. His first encounter with Uncle Sam was at Ohio Wesleyon University where he pur- sued naval subjects and the fairer sex. There he never seemed to find time to study; the ten to one ratio may have been the reason, for Hal was no Red Mike, cer- tainly. When it came to extracurricular activities here at Navy, he was content to take out one of many pipes, and read some philosophical book with a new slant on life. For exercise, he went to the boxing ring. For week- ends, Hal could usually be found dragging. His readi- ness to consider, honestly criticize, or uphold new ideas will carry him for. §iaiph 1. murphy ROCHESTER, NEW YORK Murph shedded a quartermaster third class rate when he joined us. He excelled in high school athletics: foot- ball, basketball, and track, in which he won an im- pressive Pentathlon award. The Navy did not give him much time to go to Swarthmore, but he was there long enough to pledge Delta Upsilon. Here at the Academy Murph put both musical and athletic ability to good use, making the plebe and varsity track squads, play- ing batt football, and joining the NA-10. The social background got full scope, too, with much free time spent in dragging and doing the necessary letter writ- ing. He entered on a regular Fleet Appointment and took the full entrance exams, something that gave him heart in academics. MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN Morg ranks among the foremost in the esteem of his class. Respected for an amazingly quick mind and a great aptitude for any and all engineering subjects, he has always taken life seriously. Athletically, his interests were track and cross-country. As a letter man in high school, he found a background for competition in plebe and batt counterparts. Evening found him attending Moth and Mechanical Engineering Clubs, with interest stimulated by a college background in the V-12 unit at Wisconsin ' s Lawrence College. He took time out at the Academy for sailing, to which he soon became an addict. Morg ' s future seemingly would point toward in- tense specialization in engineering, perhaps aeronautic- al, and, if his eyes permit, that future will be of Navy service. F I T A T T A L I O N 87 F I T A T T A L I O N BALTIAAORE, MARYLAND The strains of " Maryland, My Maryland " aren ' t very stirring to most of us but there are a few who rise with pride at the sound. Needles has often risen for those strains, only to be voted " under. " " Fish-head, " as he was affectionately nicknamed, started playing with a lacrosse stick at a very tender age. At Baltimore Poly Tech, Needles won his first varsity letter, and has since added a couple of " N ' s " to his credit as a mainstay of the Navy varsity. Although a Navy Junior, Bob has been pointing toward the Marines. In addition to be- coming a sea-going soldier. Bob has his OAO waiting for him at the altar upon graduation. Good luck. Bob, in both of these major undertakings. MOORHEAD, MINNESOTA Tom came to us from way up North in Minnesota. He also lived in sunny California for three years, but still claimed the Yukon as his home. He missed most the outdoor life, although he didn ' t mind skipping the cold weather. Dubbed " Showboat " while on youngster cruise, he was known to all by that monicker for the rest of his Academy days. For duty after graduation, Tom has his eye on duty above the sea— and plans on learning to fly for the Navy Air Corps. The small bit of flying here at the Academy coupled with carrier cruise has sold him on a long stretch up in the " wild blue yonder. " With his abilities and interest, he should achieve success there. KEOKUK, IOWA George came to the Academy well salted down from his tour of duty at NAPS. His port of departure was out in the big river country where he had to stand on a table to tell the height of the corn. Plenty of mail and a beauty sleep each afternoon provided a well rounded day, with a drag or two filling out each week- end. Whether rolling across the soccer field, across home plate on the Softball diamond, or in the Lord Baltimore, he was always in there helping the home team to score. George will be remembered for his jovial spirit and beautiful voice long after that buzzard on his sleeve changes to an eagle. His only complaint about the halls of Bancroft was that the decks were built too close to the seat of his pants. 11 88 Jl AVONDALE, NORTH CAROLINA In 1945, the town of Avondole, North Carolina, gave up Owens and one shiny cornet to the Naval Academy. His slow drawl and easy Southern grin, have earned Andy a good number of friends everywhere but on the dance floor, where his classmates look with silent and envious awe upon his ability to charm the opposite sex. His efforts on the basketball courts and football fields made him an asset to the company ' s teams. Youngster Year the mischievous twinkle in his eye dimmed somewhat with the intricacies of high-pressure turbines, but he rallied to spread the famed Owens Charm in Scandinavia. " Drew " has always maintained that he is a " Tar-Heel born and bred and d d proud of itl " ; we might add, in turn, that Avondale, N.C., can be justly proud of Andy. Jo fff M. § cwhins, Jr. BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA Ham found it hard to settle down under the shackles of Navy life, after his previous college training in a fraternity house at the University of Alabama. Although a believer in physical culture, he felt that the boys were taking things a bit too far when they started pounding around the obstacle course before reveille. Things really came Ham ' s way during the cruises, for he was always the first midshipman down the gangway and the last to climb back aboard the liberty boat at night. New places and new faces always gave him a thrill that carried him right on through the Dark Ages. Ham had a clearcut formula for living; he believed that hard work was the only road to success. He was one of the few who, among other things, have learned how to live. LONDONDERRY, NEW HAMPSHIRE From the rock-bound shores of New England comes our own " Pills " , a bona fide embryo diplomat. Hampered slightly by a champagne taste on a Midshipman ' s in- come, he nevertheless succeeded in cultivating an en- gaging personality and a winning Colgate smile. A proponent of rest as the universal panacea. Gene exerted only enough ergs to help manage the varsity lacrosse squad, then retired to a position by the radiator. As treasurer of the Class Ring and Crest Committee, Gene hardly found time to " walk around electrical circuits " — a process he abhors to this day. A true " homme du monde, " Gene will always be surrounded by good cheer and good friends— whether the coast be East or West. r I T A T T 4 L I O N 89 F I T A T T A L I O N ATLANTA, GEORGIA A true rebel of the old South, Eddie was born in At- lanta, and attended Russell High School and Georgia Military Academy before entering Georgia Tech, where he joined Sigma Phi Epsilon, and won his letter in rifle. Here Eddie distinguished himself in numerous battalion and company sports, winning numerals for his work in cross country. He also found pleasure in the Radio and Spanish Clubs, and, as a ' ham ' radio operator, had his own station in East Point. A Spanish savvy, Eddie sur- prised many beautiful senoritas with his fluent use of their native language. That he did not confine himself solely to senoritas was shown by his locker door. After graduation, Eddie would like the Navy Air Corps. SAUSALITO, CALIFORNIA Back in 1945 Bill packed up his troubles and boarded the Eastbound from Sausalito. He still has his troubles, but his friends enjoy his ever present smile. His adoles- cence was on active one, carrying him into various fields and ocademic distinction as a life-time member of his high school Honor Society. Too young for the service on graduation, he spent a year at Marin Junior College in the Bear State. During his four year sojourn at the Academy, Bill displayed an intensive affinity for athletics and the social life, while enduring slide rule races and bull classes. A master of the spicy, yet felic- itous tongue. Bill maintained that life is but a witty re- ply, a subtle hint, and a twinkle of the eye. MEXICO, MISSOURI Not satisfied with the extensive number of scientific courses here. Bob found opportunity to continue his studies of industrial management, ceramics, and de- signing in the Mechanical Engi neering Club. During second class summer leave, he further increased his knowledge by an industrial tour of the East. Bob took part in the intramural sports of swimming, football, and basketball. His quick opening line bucks and steady defensive play put him in the All-Batt-Halfback slot for two successive years. On occasions he came to social affairs, usually with a gal who was likely enough to be the " Drag of the Week. " His practical intelligence and likeable nature will make him a valuable officer in Uncle Sam ' s Navy. 90 BAYSHORE, NEW YORK " Trust a man and you have a friend, " an unconscious bit of the Reiss outlook, reflects Bob like his strong hand- shake or his friendly greeting. Pe--Pe has a firm con- viction that study and exercise, with the possible excep- tion of some varsity water polo, are only necessary evils to be endured from the vantage point of bed. His theories of health and sleep in no way affect his capacity for enjoying his weekends, which have the reputation for being most compact, if often hectic. An- other from that category, " late of the gay bachelor, " Bob was convinced that his exploration of the domain of women is quite at an end. At home on skiis, behind a camera, or talking about his home state. Bob will always find life looking at him as he looks at it- straight and full. KALISPELL, MONTANA When Bob arrived he immediately threw himself whole- heartedly into our activities. With the experience of announcing for his local radio station as well as for NBC station KGHL of Billings, Montana, and several awards for his outstanding oratorical abilities, he was a natural to succeed in these pursuits at the Academy, where his familiar, resonant voice boomed from the loudspeakers of the football stadiums. In winter Bob was occupied with basketball, debating, producing arti- cles for the TRIDENT, and guiding the destinies of the Hop Committee with a firm but sympathetic hand. In spite of all these activities. Bob gave much time to the welfare of his class, and we have always benefitted from the results of his remarkable talents. FLINT, MICHIGAN " Injun " Harry " s first encounter with Uncle Sam took place at the local post-office, where, inspired to un- precedented heights by the stern gent with the accusing finger on an Army recruiting poster, he offered his services to the Army Air Corps. After a short tour of basic came the continuous storm that was Air Cadet training, interrupted by Severn ' s coll, at which Harry traded his 2000-hour cap for the Blue and Gold. Plebe Year found Harry on the company ' s cross-country and steeplechase squads— later there was a tour of duty with the varsity starboot sailors. As he is partial to everything associated with flying, it is not surprising that Harry ' s goal is the air corps. His sense of purpose and keen sense of humor will assure for him a successful career. w I T A T T A L I O N 91 F I T A T T A L I O N MORGANVILLE, KANSAS Having been nurtured in the vicissitudes of hunnan ex- istence for seventeen years amid the colorful society and nightlife of a hometov n of 283 people, Ivan em- erged into the world, and found refuge in V-12 at Ohio Wesleyan University before Navy. On weekdays Ive would play the double bell euphonium in the concert band. Sundays he would lend his musical talents to the choir. When it was possible to slip away from the num- erous practices required. Chip ' s skillful handling of the penknife brought forth a fine display of ship and air- craft models. His talented toe and aggressiveness helped win many victories for our company soccer team. After graduation Ivan would like to enter Navy research. A man with his energy and talent should go far. EDGEWATER, NEW JERSEY A true son of the Hudson river, Sandy could usually be found writing a letter or worrying about the team ' s chances against " them bums. " Sandy came to the Academy straight from the school often better known as the Colonel ' s, and whenever a group gathered he was sure to be in the middle telling stories about " the good old days, " about " ropes " and smoking jackets. No Dago slash, Sandy ' s only academic worry was his two year battle with the Spanish Department. He found time to be loyal to the Hudson and go out for plebe and batt swimming, where he held down the relay spot. He also lent a hand to the waterpolo, softball and football teams. Practically a married man, Sandy plans to combine grad- uation with marriage followed by a regular line com- mission. CHICAGO, ILLINOIS To Mr. and Mrs. Louis Lotito of Chicago, his parents, the Navy football team is in good hands whenever Pat is in the game. And they ore right too, for their Missouri Military Academy, USMC alumnus son does the football sport and the Naval Academy proud. An ex-sergeant with twenty-five months ' service, Pat again returns to the Corps. It was hard to find a sport he did not excel in, for football was his first love, then wrestling, followed by lacrosse, boxing, and track in any order. Neither his military nor academic duties ever suffered inordi- nately, for he never neglected essentials for a moment. Pat, who was born in Marl, Westfalen, Germany and moved to this country when two years old, is the class of 1949 ' s only naturalized citizen. 92 SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA Having seen the world under the cognizance of the Marine Corps ever since birth, Gim early decided upon his vocation. He has settled down only long enough to have high school in San Diego, his adopted home. Gim will not only be remembered for his likeable traits, but also for his one bad habit— cigarette bumming. Early every fall. Spider would have the plebes spooned for rooms around, in hopes of securing another happy hunt- ing ground! Two big blows came to Gim while at the Academy, the first coming when, as an aspirant at la- crosse he was hit by a flailing stick, and the second when he received the " Dear John " from his OAO. These calamities have not, however, hampered his desire to become a Marine officer. U)aticw M. Sthwicicw OSHKOSH, WISCONSIN Walt never travelled far for education until the Navy claimed him, attending high school at home and major- ing for two years in Mechanical Engineering at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota. In high school and college, he leaned towards basketball and tennis, though in college he also played baseball, earning letters both places. Walt attended Midshipman and Naval Reserve programs at Princeton and Columbia Universities, then entered the Academy on a college certificate. Tennis was his first sport, playing for the plebe squad his first year. He traded uniforms season- ally for company and batt basketball, football, and handball, finding time to lend a good clear voice to the Naval Academy choir. F I T A T T A L I O N . HUDSON, OHIO Another victim of the double initial nickname, Tom, T-Squared, or Turn-To, brought to the Academy two particularly forceful causes, the incomparable OAO, and his home town. Characteristic force dominates all he does. Academics were consistently vanquished in a one-sided encounter, and batt sports felt his drive. Tom put previous training at Western Reserve Academy to good use in battalion football, following this with plebe and batt track achievements. Tom, since the first me- morable ride, has had the Naval Air Corps as an ulti- mate goal, and since class standing and physical re- quirements play a big part in acceptance to future duty, he seems destined to go there. 93 F I T A T T A L I O N ywnn (ttt. Shcpawd CHRISTIANSBURG, OHIO For his Ohio, Shep had the chamber of commerce touch, and, in defense of his large meals enjoyed without shoes, he insisted that indigestion was an evil resulting from tight shoes. Although usually relaxed, the " Little Giant " played batt football, track, and golf, justifying his relaxation by his N ' s in pistol, the nerveless sport. By contributing a resounding baritone to the Glee Club and choir, singing with the latter several times at the White House. Another dear love was dancing. A great fellow and a true bon vivant, Shep has secured the reputation of being a jovial, affable man with a Shavian disregard for conventions. This disregard, however, has never altered his approach to serious things, and we predict for Shep a successful and happy career. £tMwt §i. Short DUNKIRK, NEW YORK No one will ever know what kept Earl from the evils of the Greylegs, for he spent a year at Braden Prep, right under the shadows of West Point. His high stand- ing in his class speaks well of his academic prowess. In athletics. Earl was no radiator man. He tackled varsity rifle and crew, and gave a welcome hand at company basketball, steeplechase, and soccer. Extra- curricular activties such as the LOG, LUCKY BAG, and Christmas Card and Reception Committees took much of his spare time. In all of his activities, his quiet, force- ful manner won him many friends. He was one of the few who did not lose his OAO during his stint on the Severn. Earl has his father ' s understanding of business, and hopes to join the Supply Corps on graduation. C. §iat Smith, Jr. FLORENCE, SOUTH CAROLINA South Carolina suffered a real loss in 1945 when Ray packed up and moved to Bancroft Hall. Thus was started four years of passive resistance in a madly rushing place. Somehow, though, this southern gentleman managed to make out. C. Ray ' s passive resistance program was aided by three years at Marion Military Institute, where he starred in engineering and military science. Presumably it was also at Marion that his hairline started to look suspiciously like it might jump to the top of his head. One of C. Ray ' s passions was flying, and his most en- joyable duty tour was on second class cruise when he had an opportunity to do a little Navy cloud hopping. 94 II llmg i " little «%ii)5 EAST McKEESPORT, PENNSYLVANIA A quiet humor that smiled at the rough stretches and chuckled elsewhere was as fundamentally Steg as his nearly unpronounceable name. This easy wit was al- ways an ally with blind drags, whose continual succes- sion seemed only to add to his life claim to the rose- scented brick. His size, Steg claimed, was ideal in any sport, particularly his favorite, squash; for his opponent, in trying to find him, was always at a disadvantage. An ample book larnin ' staged most of the Quag ' s fights with the academics, leaving time for happier pursuits, such as second tenor in the Glee Club. With his com- paniable nature as sure a comrade as his many friends, Steg will find his career rewarding him as he has answered its call, freely and with a smile. llan m. Stewart ROCHESTER, NEW YORK After about eight months ' service with two and one-half months overseas in the Marines, there is just one guess as to the immediate future of Stew, who went to VMI for a hitch before the Corps claimed him. Despite every effort to relax and write to women, he still managed to do well academically, to do some mean kicking on the soccer team, and to work in some lacrosse and company sports to boot. At VMI he belonged to a subversive or- ganization named the Yankee Club that seemed to have colored his personality; he began to extol the North, and still does. Despite this social error he was liked by everyone, for he genuinely combined strict attention to duty and easy friendliness. olr rf 11. SpewB€ew SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH Although he had entered the Academy from high school. Bob was never bothered by Academics, and spent his spare time in sports and bridge. Often before a big quiz, however, his room looked like an extra-instruction classroom, with Bob giving forth on how to do the probs. He was an exponent of the beauty of Western girls, backing up his stand with the pictures that decorated his locker. Probably his most notable stories were those of skiing thrills high in the Rockies. His quietness and modesty have won him many friends here who will never forget him. These qualities will stand by him in the Air Corps, to which he looks forward on graduation. Regardless of his field, however, he has the best wishes of his classmates for success. • F I T A T T A L I O N 95 I F I T A T T A L I O N Charlei £. Stilet ALBANY, NEW YORK Forthright individualism and a love of any humorous situation allow Chuck to enjoy fully the important oc- casions of any Navy year— the liberty; and his marking time between liberties was interrupted only long enough to win varsity letters in soccer and lacrosse. Studies and regulations, regarded as troublesome trivialities, never interfered with Honest John O ' Stiles ' arranging the de- tails of his inevitable big deals. At more serious mo- ments, Chuck found that the three years he had spent as an enlisted man and AVCAD were providing both the background and goal of his efforts. With his inherent luck and limitless energy, Chuck has more than he needs lo win those wings of gold. U ilUam C. SitMti BALTIMORE, MARYLAND With a bland smile on his face, and a lacrosse stick in his hand, Willie wandered into our midst back in the summer of ' 45. Rather quiet and modest. Bill hid his prowess as a ham-and-egger until the spring of Plebe Year, although a knee injury kept him out of action most of that year and the next. W-see ' s tangles with the academic department consistently found him winner, with time left over to be an interested member of the Mechanical Engineering club. Although there was a time when he nearly got hooked, no Femme Fatale has entered Willie ' s young life, despite the many queens he has dragged. His Chesterfieldian manners and true graciousness will make Will ' s life ahead a pleasure for both himself and his associates. Phillip m. Suhr MARIETTA, GEORGIA " That ' s out west somewhere, " was always Phil ' s designa- tion for anything west of Washington, as his primary interest in the great world was always directed toward Georgia ' s Gem City. Without much strain in Academics, he usually managed to stay somewhere ahead of the trees. He always got in his share of sailing, earning his yawl command Plebe Year, and getting a real taste of salt on the race to Bermuda Youngster Summer. When not sailing, he could usually be found over in the fenc- ing loft, working for an N to sew on his B-robe. The possibility of catching a little " flyboy " duty appealed to Phil, but whether he gets it or not, he can be counted on to make a good showing in the Fleet. pulli 96 WYTHEVILLE, VIRGINIA Careful always to say about the " house " without any distinguishing accent. Gene nevertheless is a Virginian through and through. From Wytheville, his next alma mater was the distinguished VMI, where a year and a half as a Chemistry major prepared him to wear easily the stars for Naval Academy academic excellence. While in high school, Gene earned two letters in foot- ball with playing that won him a place on the famous ISO ' s while at Annapolis. His was a fighting addition to the fighting light-weight team, which came into being during his Academy career. When Gene was not work- ing hard at football, he undertook batt tennis and jumped into extra-curricular activities by doing unsung chores with the business gang of the Combined Musical Clubs. MADISON, SOUTH DAKOTA The pride of Madison came to the Academy directly from high school, but his record gave warning that the college boys would have to strain. Valedictorian, stu- dent body president, and captain of the football, basketball, and track teams were a few of Jerry ' s ac- complishments. During Youngster Year he pitched every ball of the game for the 13th Company championship Softball teem. As a second classman he was chosen as guard on the " All Brigade " football team. Probably the thing about Jerry that his classmates remember best is the fact that hardly a day went by without someone pulling a gag at his expense. Yet no matter how foul the trick, or how often attempted, it just wasn ' t possible for Jerry to become seriously angry. F I T YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO Fred (Atrocious) Troescher rolled into Navy via a musi- cal scholarship from Valley Forge Military Academy. He joined the Forty-niners, our plebe band, and then entered the NA-10 and the Concert Band when ' 49 joined the brigade. Two years of jumping back and forth in the Musical Club Shows persuaded him to give up the Concert band in favor of the music column of the LOG. On cruise he always gave happy hours a boost with his smooth trombone. Fred also dabbled with the diodes, as a member of the Radio Club. He seemed able to always pop a pun just when the Execs ' latest strategy had the boys bewildered. This trait also en- deared him to the femmes, but he managed to keep them away, as was proved by his charter membership in the flying squadron. A T T A L I O N 97 F I T A T T A L I O N U)iiiifBm . € 9 1 CHICAGO, ILLINOIS When you can pry Bill from his letters to Chicago, you will find one of the Academy ' s outstanding star men. From Northwestern University, Bill began to sell Chi- cago, the Middle West, and photography with gusto. He tried his hand at most of the company sports, picked up the class numerals, and added to the points with typical casualness. Sometimes he tried the bowling game, sometimes even billiards, but most of all he and his wife were snapping pictures without warning, and more than once without posing. The sack beckoned early each day; very seldom did the taps inspector have to shut off the midnight oil. Bill could be truly galvanized into action only at moil-call and chow, where he took a good full share of both. Donald . Z:wtMchl99d BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA When long Doc Trueblood shook the limestone dust of Indiana off his feet and headed for Annapolis, he brought with him a background of three semesters at Indiana University. Doc soon showed that he meant to keep up the good start he hod made there as a member of the freshman honor fraternity. He also found time to keep his hand in on one of the Bancroft Steinways, and he had no trouble finding plenty of girls to tag along with his long stride on dragging week- ends. One of True ' s biggest thrills came at the end of Youngster Year. After all spring, the crew coach moved him up to the junior varsity boat just before the Poughkeepsie Regatta. Thus Doc rowed his first inter- collegiate race in Navy ' s J-V boat which took second place in that division of the world-famous regatta. MANCHESTER, CONNECTICUT Days as an aircrewmon an d an abiding love of salt water have combined to provide both the remembrance and the incentive that have given Jack his goal. He had not been here long before his classmates discovered on enduring determination that was as much a part of him as the shy quiet with that bespoke a New England heritage. This same determination had to be credited, at least partly, for Jack ' s continuing status of " strictly attached, " no mean feat for four long years. Jack was a firm believer in exercise, and he bore both Navy ' s and company ' s standards in the van of many a race. One single thing tells why Jack had the respect and friendship of all— a smile runs all through his life. 98 edwtMwd c. u)€Mncf, Mii CORONADO, CALIFORNIA The LUCKY BAG is greatly indebted to Big Ed for re- naming so many of his friends with the products of a very fertile brain. In fact, there are few of the " Camel ' s " acquaintances who still retain their given names when addressed by him. Ed spends a good deal more time dreaming up pranks, tinkering with his cameras, and reading than he does studying, although he is rightly respected as a brain. Big Ed has tried most every sport at some time, helping at company football, battalion squash, and gym. His major accomplishment, however, has been in lacrosse, in which, starting new plebe sum- mer, he ended up a permanent fixture on the varsity. Wherever you go in the Fleet, Ed, your old buddies and new friends will welcome you. JgBmcs J}. tVathins PASADENA, CALIFORNIA The brother who graduated with the class of ' 42 may or may not be the reason why Jim shifted his " Blue and Gold " from the University of California (Berkeley) to the Naval Academy, bringing with him the ability to see humor everywhere, plus a keen desire to take no noticeable strain. Plebe and Youngster Years found " The Wat " and his exhuberant wife, Fred Fisher, agreed that there is no coast like the West Coast. Interspersed with this loyalty were frequent visits to Hubbard Hall and scenic College Creek, where Jamie bent an oar with the other varsity crew men. Always fond of flying, he was in his element on 2 c cruise ... the future should find Jamie with a pair of gold wings and a permanent residence in Pasadena. OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA Salty Dick Whiteside came to Navy straight from de- stroyer duty in the North Atlantic. With his chest lead- ing by a hair, " the brace " has sailed through four years, leaving in his wake a trail of sea stories, each better than the last. In sports, although kept from the varsities by an injured knee, he has often lent the strength that turned the tide in many company soccer, football, and Softball games. Since the Old Navy always knows the ropes, it was only natural for Dick to acquire a crab during his stay here. He wants destroyer duty on gradu- ation, later to enter aviation, and someday to command a destroyer of his own. F I T A T T A I. I O N 99 Chawlcs S. U)hiiinq HAMPTON, VIRGINIA " You mean we ' ve got a steam quiz next period? " often issued from Chas about twenty minutes before one of those too frequent inquisitions from said department. Always easygoing, Charlie never let academics worry him too much— maybe because he had had such a good start at VMI. Not a charter member of the radiator squad, but on active one nonetheless, Charlie vied with the regulars in that strenuous sack duty. He couldn ' t exactly be called a Red Mike— he dragged at least once a year, regularly! Always ready with a smile for oil, Charlie was without a doubt one of the most popular members of the company, and his good humor and readiness to lend a helping hand will stand him in good stead for those thirty years he plans to spend in the Fleet. F I T A T T A L I O N hM 4sr Cart m. U iUnwM MILLEDGEVILLE, GEORGIA Carl came to the Naval Academy well prepared for the military life of the Navy. With two years at the Georgia Military College behind him, the Major has assumed the position of the company ' s leading authority on strategy and tactics. A firm disciplinarian himself, the Major has had no diflficulty adapting his routine to the system. Plebe Year he rowed battalion crew, and four times he was one of the big guns on the company soccer squad. Carl ' s interest in sports extended beyond the Academy, and at home he hunted and fished a good deal. In spite of a busy schedule, he found plenty of time to spend with his OAO. Good luck to you, Carl, when you venture forth on the briny deep and the sea of matrimony. Jo n C. (WiUota CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA " FORE! " Whether on the golf course or off, that might have been J. C. ' s battle cry, for if it was a slow four- some ahead or a tough problem he was working, J. C. gave warning and plowed right in. He was no novice to the Academy style of life, as he had already gradu- ated from Culver and had spent a year and a half at Davidson. At Navy, J. C. was able to take off enough time from the routine to keep his golf gome in top form to compete with the better linksmen. He has played plebe, battalion, and varsity golf both fall and spring of all four years, with pushball in the winter. Although John hasn ' t dragged as much as some, he has followed the tradition of the true Southern gentleman, and dragged only Southern belles. 100 I QUINCY, ILLINOIS " Boy! This is a wonderful life here at Navy! " How many times have we heard Wish make that profound statement? Somehow, Wish always managed to be in gay spirits, and tried to keep others just as cheerful. His good nature, however, could have been deceiving, as he was one of the toughest of the varsity wrestlers, having begun at Penn State, continued on the plebe team, and finished by winning " N ' s " for three years on the varsity. Out of season he has kept in condition with company soccer and daily trips to the gym. In spite of his athletic prowess, he dragged a good deal, and was a smooth dancer and quite an operator. With his keen interest in Naval work and deep love for the Service, Bob will have a highly successful career. Dawid J. tV dard SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO From the oldest city in the U.S. came the incomparable " Mole. " Boasting a year at Texas A. M., he came to " Naval " from the Army R.O.T.C. where, he claimed, the plebe system of the Navy would be considered tame. Not a member of the radiator squad, Woody, after A. M., continued his ventures on the cinder path until second class year when he abandoned the spikes for the football cleats of the 150 pound footballers. With all this there was still time to be devoted to his best loved diversions, and the hours not spent in slumber were quite noturally given to the charms of numerous OAO ' s (one among others). He will long be remembered for laughs with his wives, a twinkling pair of blue eyes, and the conviction that life is just a bowl of enchiladas. F I T A T T A L I O N MOORHEAD, MINNESOTA Although his rebel roommate called Harry ' s native state the " Yukon, " Harry always liked the " cool " winters and inviting summers. In high school, he won letters in basketball, football, and track, captaining the former two, and during his two years at college, he won letters and all-conference awards in basketball, while life- guarding in the summers. Here he continued his work in basketball as a high-scoring guard for the varsity, and would have been diving for the varsity swimmers, had not that season coincided with the basketball time. Harry will have no trouble making good in anything he decides to do, for he has the spirit, ability, and de- termination to succeed. 101 January 30, 1925 - December 31, 1945 He fiaf i a ' o (.ene6 from the dream of life. -SHELLEY 1 Ih s E C o N A T T A L I O N NEW YORK, NEW YORK As an alumnus of New York Military Academy, Ted was accustomed to avoiding the wrath of the execs. Two years at New York U. gave him a good background, and after plebe steam his academic troubles ceased. In company sports, Ted played fieldball, pushball, and soccer. As Company LOG representative, he sweated over LOG subscription payments, getting his revenge, however, when, as LUCKY BAG representative, he was responsible for the company ' s biographies. Cruises al- ways seemed especially long to " the Bear; " his sack was always farthest from a fan, and he never failed to get the bottom locker in a main passageway. Ted ' s graduation brings him double happiness because now he takes the long awaited step with his OAO. DEXTER, MISSOURI Bob, feeling that any mark above 2.5 gave the differ- ence to the Academic departments, never yielded to the temptation of giving anything to Math or Steam. A talented pianist, he once won a prize playing back home. Coming to the Academy after two years of college and a hitch in the Army, Bob is a career man. The fact that he sweated out Plebe Christmas here at Navy tells us that he has the determination as well as the ability and desire to be one. We will always remember Bob for his quick wit and his ability to tag someone with an appropriate nickname; we will remember him as one at whose room we would stop to have a friendly chat and a smoke. We say " au revoir " and good luck to a fine classmate. §i.i€haw ' d S. Mgnc9W SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA Dick come to us from the Sunshine State after having attended Roosevelt High, Territory of Hawaii, and prepped at Severn School, where he lettered in football and lacrosse. Having grown up swimming on the beaches of the West Coast and Honolulu, he still rated this sport high among his favorites. Besides lacrosse and swimming, one of his favorite pastimes was read- ing and you could find him in the sack most any study hour reading his favorite books. No Red Mike, Agates played the field when it came to th e girls— a true ex- plorer. This itinerant member of the California Chamber of Commerce has made friends since he has been in the East, but take it from him, he is a true son of the West and wants to return there some day. t i Moxn ille,l( ithool leofns teotef loolbfl, otidlii " mi ' ebel I tine yi iislosi tors a Joii ' l I 104 md [boll " He ' oied crosie reod. study leex- inber in the West I i COOKEVILLE, TENNESSEE Max reduced the population of his birthplace, Cooke- ville, to 6999 when he came to Navy. Drawing on high school experience, he played center for the batt football teams and did a fine job of it. He also held down the center spot when his company won the heavyweight football championship. Lacrosse came natural to him and he spent several seasons throwing that little ball around. He and his wife were exposed to too many rebel history books during their younger days, so any time you want to know who really won the Great War, just ask them. No matter where Max is sent in the Navy, you can be sure of one thing, he will be able to take care of himself. If you want to stay a friend of his, just don ' t say anything against the South. SELMA, ALABAMA Having come to us as one of the saltiest bell-bottomed, winged hat boys you ever saw, straight from a year of V-5, A. J. quickly acquired a long string of cognomens ranging from Tommy and Adge all the way down to Blimpo and Ebony. When routed from his horizontal engineering, he lugged the leather as a batt football fullback, left pounds in the handball courts, and filled out his time breaking par on the links and floating his " oh, so slow " one past opposing softball batters. Since the day Electromotive Atkins touched off the Juice lab, almost scratching one Juice prof, we made him wear his rubbers even when he tuned the radio. Although he had a Yankee for a wife, A. J. never once surrendered the sovereignty of Dixie. Jo fi . att n, Jr. EAST AURORA, NEW YORK " Roger " came to the ranks of the regular Navy with a camera under one arm and a squash racket under the other. His room was always ready to be transformed at a moment ' s notice into a photographic studio, and the results of his skill now grace many albums of his classmates. Besides being known as a bridge shark, he gained notoriety for his last-minute dashes to break- fast formation. His splendid scalp massages were cred- ited with saving several cases of baldness. Possessing a truly independent spirit, his complaints against the system were voluminous, yet his loyalty and patriotism were unsurpassed. He hopes to enter some line of the judicial branch of the Navy. E C O N A T T A L I O N 105 E C O N A T T 4 L I O N SYRACUSE, NEW YORK Born and bred in the invigorating climate of upstate New York, " Banjo " came to the Naval Academy directly from the enlisted ranks. His love for running won him berths on the track and cross country squads where he regularly expended his excess energy. His most impor- tant love, however, is for a certain southern belle who was always faithful with her daily letters. Each year found Banjo in some manner participating in the various musical shows, providing support for the baritone section of the Glee Club. Along with singing, he kept himself busy playing the snare drum in the Drum and Bugle Corps. Banjo ' s ready smile and open friendliness won him many friends while here at Navy. We wish him luck and a happy life. LAKE BLUFF, ILLINOIS Bob breezed into USNA with a big smile and a long line of baloney. Probably no room in the Academy has ever provided more laughs than that of Bob, Grab, and Joe. Who can forget the episode of the steerage fan which kept their room cool during the hot Youngster June Week? Nor will we forget the efforts of Commoque Eostlant to remove Bob from our midst via the papsheet route and our boy ' s successful efforts of evasion. Bob ' s academic efforts have been limited to thinking about the possibilities of studying but despite this he stood near the top of his class. Seriously though, Bob ' s affable manner and unusual resourcefulness will insure his suc- cess in any undertaking. (iwchf RITTMAN, OHIO Bill not only was an ex-corporal of the Gyrene Corps and didn ' t care who knew it, but has not let his spirit for the corps lessen during his four years in the Navy. Dur- ing Plebe Year, the Boon had to take quite a bit of guff due to his loyalty to the Marines, but he managed it all with a smile. His constant thirst for knowledge developed in him the book habit. He read anything and everything, but preferred the heavier stuff: economics and philosophy. As he read, he played classical music — " study music, " he called it. In the athletic line, he en- gaged in soccer, wrestling, or tennis, each time just enough for a good workout. During Second Class Year, he became treasurer for the Trident Society, and his attention to those duties demanded much of his time during the afternoons. 106 tViiliawn W. rtMndfnn BROOKLYN, NEW YORK Bill is the man who never left Brooklyn although he has traveled far and wide. At seventeen he joined the Army and spent months in the mud of the Southland before transferring to the Navy to attend NAPS. He was devoted to the game of baseball and its leading team, the Dodgers. Here he has fulfilled the job as manager of Navy ' s baseball team. Although he did not drag much, his good nature stood him in good stead with members of both sexes. Bill was always the optimist, be it baseball, the Navy, or an extension of leave. In just managing to keep his head above water, he stood well in the first half of his class. As he is fine officer ma- terial from head to foot, his prospects in the Navy look very good. Philip C ratan»MM BARNWELL, SOUTH CAROLINA Phil ' s two years at Georgia Military College taught him how to evade such monsters as the execs, for he was the only man who could curl up under the turned-back bedclothes and convince the O.D. that all were turned out. Having served with the fleet and V-12, Phil had background and always went into final exams with gravy . . . how he did it was Phil ' s own secret, for mostly he never cracked his books more than ten minutes. He was on the plebe and varsity track teams, winning sev- eral numerals, and also ran on the battalion track, and company steeplechase and cross country teams, as well as playing golf. Phil ' s heart has always been with the Marine Corps, his father ' s former branch of service. BERLIN, NEW JERSEY A crack shot from the Marine Corps, the " rotund one " started his Navy career as a consistent placer on the rifle team. During his youngster cruise he spent most of his time hanging far out over the rail and wishing he were still a " gyrene. " Ever the one to keep well informed on current events. Brownie was often caught quoting his Podunk ' s periodical, the Berlin Breeze, which blew in once a week. Academics and books never scared Brownie, although it was usually the reveille bell which brought life to them both. His chief complaint was, " If this hair doesn ' t stop falling out, I ' ll soon be combing the comb. " He always felt that a smile was useless with- out a good belly laugh, much to the enjoyment of his classmates— who wish him all success. s E C o N A T T A L I O N 107 s E C O N A T T A L I O N James 1}. Sutler NAPA, CALIFORNIA " The Butch " came to us from the heart of the Golden State via the NROTC at the University of Washington. Passionately interested in politics, he gained the name of the " legislator " by virtue of his lengthy and intense arguments on political subjects. Never late to a meal formation, he was one of the v orld ' s largest consumers of food. Despite his scorn for those weaklings who succumbed to womanly wiles, he was often seen with some sweet young thing on the dance floor. During his stay at the Academy he has been one of the mainstays of the pistol team. Coming from a long line of chief engineers, it is not surprising that he plans on entering some engineering branch of the Navy. offoM M. Catnphell BROOKLYN, NEW YORK Don flew into the Naval Academy on the wings of the Naval Air Corps in which he was an air crewman. He soon won the friendship of his classmates by his quiet, sincere manner and his willingness to work for a good cause. This characteristic was particularly noticeable in his good academic standing. Don ' s main interest in New York still appears to be the lovely young lady from Brooklyn whom he plans to marry on graduation. A final part of his life here has been concerned with athletics— the cross country squad since Plebe Year, and batt sports as well. Don is well on his way to a suc- cessful naval career, preferably in the Air Corps, and will go far with his winning personality. U)infredMl. uthiwughawn TYLER, TEXAS Buck came to Navy via Tyler High School and Tyler Junior College, where he had learned all about Texas, and nothing about the great world. As he will tell you, he was surprised to find that there was more to the United States than roses and sand. Academics never seemed to trouble Buck much, and he found time to participate in many extra-curricular activities, among which were Glee Club, Quarterdeck Society, Portuguese Club, and the Orchestra. Although his main sport was wrestling in his room, he was active also in company sports, especially cross country and softball. We will always remember Buck and Texas. We know he will be well received wherever he goes, and wish him well. II wkeft linue: leoms . I cruise gotb kows 108 Hnra€ . ClawUc.

He con- tinued playing lacrosse here on the plebe and battalion teams, winning three numerals, and also participated in company steeplechase, soccer, fieldball, and cross coun- try. A menace with a guitar and an ofF-key voice, on cruise Moonbeam did his best to entertain us with hill- billy songs, but spent most of his spare time in his bunk or taking lessons in card-playing. At the Academy, Don found little necessity for poring over his textbooks and got by with a minimum of efFort, spending his study hours writing letters to his many drags. Never one to let a tough situation dismay him, Don will always suc- ceed, no matter how rough the going. J o6 rf H. CtMwimitt TULSA, OKLAHOMA Entering the Naval Academy by way of Radio Tech- nicians School, " Baz " managed to weather the more disagreeable aspects of the system. Gifted with intense powers of concentration, and a fierce determination to maintain the highest level in every pursuit he undertook, the possessor of Tulsa ' s most off key voice gave the Academic Departments a severe drubbing, starring every year. Time has meant so much to him that he is actu- ally known to have expressed a desire (believe it or not) to be able to devote part of his precious sack time to the further development of his mind. We ' re willing to bet a lot more than those two Oklahoma mils that he will succeed in whatever field he enters. U itlard M Clarh, Jr. MACEDON, NEW YORK Tall, quiet, and inoffensive, Willard came to Navy from Macedon, which he asserts is the only town in New York to maintain a population of 500 for half a century. As a member of the V-12 and NROTC, he attended Syracuse University, Union College, and Holy Cross, which he left abruptly in the summer of ' 45 to journey to the banks of the Severn and become a Midshipman, USN. Although he could not be called a Red Mike, Will did not go for the ladies too much. He more or less abided by the old maxim, " women are a snare and a delusion, . . . , " and preferred to spend his leisure evenings in earnest discussions of politics. Will is a typi- cal Navy man, one who always plans to resign, but never quite gets around to it. E C O N A T T A L I O N 109 E C O N A T T 4 L I O N CROCKETT, TEXAS An easy-going East Texan who takes life as it comes, Neal came to Navy to tell the boys about a continent called Texas. He entered the Academy fortified against the Academic Departments with a background of knowl- edge accumulated at previously attended universities. He had had one year at Texas University, where he was a Kappa Alpha, and had attended George Washington University in Washington, D. C, for a year and a half. Neal ' s home town of Crockett is quite proud of him, as he was president of the Senior Class of Crockett High School and a member of the Student Council for two years. He made a 49 during Plebe Year as a crew cox- swain, then decided that dragging was much more pleas- ant. He has been very active in company and batt sports since then. DENVER, COLORADO Although a Texan by birth. Bill hailed from Denver and was given less to boasting than most Texans. With no college experience before coming to Navy— his time had been spent in the Infantry— Bill did well in his academics, despite his spending a minimum of time over books and keeping occupied by listening to records and burn- ing up the telephone wires between Annapolis and Washington. Most of his afternoons were spent on Far- ragut Field with battalion lacrosse, company football, cross country, and the extra duty squad. Bill ' s hobbies were shooting, ice-skating, and mountain-climbing— nat- urals for his home state. After four years of waiting, the day has now come for Bill to walk up that middle aisle with his OAO. A i §ii€hawd §1. C tiwiwM MAYWOOD, CALIFORNIA Rick was born and raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles, and, coming from the sunshine state, he was particularly critical of the cold Maryland winter. Before entering the Navy, he majored in Chemistry at Pomona College. After a tour of duty at Great Lakes and Camp Peary, he came to the banks of the Severn where his broad shoulders and long arms soon won him a place on the fencing team. A great believer of mind over matter. Rick could often be found reading the higher works of philosophy and psychology. Youngster Year he won his " Toga " at St. John ' s. Rick enjoyed classical music and also developed talent as an artist. Conversely, steam was his strongest subject and yet. Rick would like to test his abilities in the foreign service. 110 I alter, ■Ml ■m (6 to SEATTLE, WASHINGTON A true Westerner, Bob constantly maintained that the best part of the country was all west of the Rockies. At least, nowhere else could he have had better op- portunities to engage in his favorite pastimes of skiing and fishing for the famous northwest King salmon. An ardent lover of all sports. Bob was tough competition in handball or tennis, won numerals in plebe track and company soccer and Softball, and also played company football. A year at Rutherford Prep in Long Beach left Bob well prepared, and he had little trouble with the academics. Having logged more than two hundred hours flying commercially to and from leaves. Bob hopes to go into Naval Aviation where the rides are free. Harvey Citnnvcw, Jr. MAMARONECK, NEW YORK Harv was the sailing expert of the company and spent most of his recreation time battling the elements on Chesapeake Bay, winning four N ' s with several stars as momentos of Navy ' s victories over the Army. A true sea dog, he spent Second Class Christmas sailing in the Ba- hamas with his father. During the winter months, Harv ran steeplechase and played pushball and fieldball. He did his share of studying, and was stymied only once —by Plebe Steam. In his attempts to be a language slash Rufo joined the Spanish club. During leaves home in Mamaroneck, when his time was not taken up with his OAO, he enjoyed going duck hunting. Since the days of sail are over, Harv will settle for a P.T. boat in Long Island Sound. SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA One of the shorter members of our class, " The Horn, " better known as " Fee, " entered our ranks as a Navy Junior with a hard-won Presidential appointment. His small stature and quiet manner were by no means a true measure of the real Fee, for behind these masks one could find all the attributes essential to any Naval officer. He was active in company sports, giving a help- ing hand in soccer and cross country. If hunting and fishing had been Naval Academy sports, Fee would probably have been captain of both teams, for in them his main interest lies. We have all been proud to know Fee as our classmate, and know that wherever he goes in the Navy, his job will be well done. s E C o N A T T A L I O N 111 s E C o N A T T A L I O N OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA " Pass the Joe, please " — these immortal words, typically Navy, are even more typically Dalrymple. For the last four years, those were his first words in the morning and his last at night. Jack hails from California but spent most of his youth travelling over enough of the U. S. to be able to wear the title, Citizen-at-Large. Before join- ing the Navy, he attended St. Mary ' s College in Cali- fornia. A year later he passed the fleet exams for en- trance to the Academy. Here he worked with the Me- chanical Engineering Club, and was one of the feature editors and make-up men for the TRIDENT during Youngster Year. His interest in femmes was reawakened Second Class Year, and his conversational abilities and tact made him popular with the Navy drags. BROOKLYN, NEW YORK Chet knows the Navy, for he came to us the hard way, by Fleet Appointment. To him, the best branch of the Navy is the sub service and that is where he is plan- ning to go after his four years at the Trade School. Whether it be on Long Island Sound or Chesapeake Bay, just put C.G. at the wheel of a yawl or yacht, and he would be as happy as if he were on leave. Perhaps this interest accounted for his being on the sailing team, an active member of the Boat Club, and the skipper of many week-end sailing trips. Chet spoke about him- self in round numbers; " How long were you in the Navy? " About twenty-eight months. " " What is the population of your home town? " " About three million. " How long do you plan to stay in the Navy? " " About twenty years. " anaid fi. DaMwnan AAUSKEGON, MICHIGAN When this rugged little guy showed up on the Severn, he immediately made his presence known and his fight- ing spirit respected. Though professing to be an incor- rigible loafer, Donny was always available either for heart to heart talks about sports, home, or women. He probably holds a course record for lost golf balls, plus another record for solid enjoyment of the game, as he spent many afternoons battling his way around the North Severn links. Don really knew his way around in the cockpit of a star boat, and was a valuable hand in the Stage Gang. The Deedleman managed to keep that distinctive nose above the black waters of academics but not without giving it a fight. A fellow we like to be with and coll a pal— that is our Don. I port 2c, !occ Tke dim qwi 112 M). arry ' Dearth LAWRENCE, MASSACHUSETTS Harry has been a seadog ever since boot camp at New- port, Rhode Island. Rising to the level of Storekeeper 2 c, he served on the U.S.S. TAURUS, a noteworthy AF (according to him) which operated from New Zealand. The lure of more important things in the Navy induced him to try for a fleet appointment to the Academy. Recreation hours never seem to drag for him since he found that music, reading, walks in the country, and letters filled those hours pleasantly. He is known as the " Hot Mot " because he gets 99% of the word, and has quick access to information. The Navy together with his fiance, to whom he is devoted, should supply Harry with all the happiness and contentment which we wish him in the future. M4?tiy J. DiMwiu Jr. NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE Colonel ' s days at high school must have been well spent, for, with no other preparation, he managed to keep many numbers between himself and the anchor. Aca- demics never monopolized his time, though, for he was a member of the intramural teams in swimming, water polo, soccer, and cross country, as well as an All- American mail receiver. Youngster Cruise found the Colonel dividing his time between sack drill and extra- helping the notorious section 1 of the 6M Division clean bunker oil out of the voids of the North Carolina. His ability, his quiet, unassuming personality, and his ever present smile hove mode him a fine classmate, and will make him a fine shipmate and officer in years to come. iVhiUier Q. Davis MADISON, WISCONSIN As ardent sailor and one of Navy ' s chief boating en- thusiasts, Whit is headed for a career in the Sub service. Drawing down Navy N ' s since Plebe Year for tending sheets and becoming waterlogged in the dinghies, he also added a yawl command for those periodic drag- ging sprees. He divides his home town allegiance be- tween Laguna Beach, California, and Madison, Wiscon- sin, and spent two years in V-12 at Northwestern before entering the Academy. That one stripe opened up op- portunities for the fair sex and operations ranged from Crabtown and Baltimore to the West Coast via Chicago. Reveille inspections, musters, liberties, and the hops all went too fast to get a good look, but the next twenty years will give plenty of time for reflections and mem- ories. E C O N A T T A L I O N 113 E C O N A T T A L I O N BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA From out of the swamp, deep in the bayou country of Louisiana, Denny found his way to Crabtown, stopping only to become President of the Sigma Chi Chapter dur- ing his two years at Louisiana State University. This fact undoubtedly explains his ease with the fair sex and superior collection of drags. Six months of his year as a bluejacket were spent at radio school. This experience, coupled with his keen mind and previous college, has easily overcome all academic hurdles. As an athlete he is adept at bridge, golf and ping pong. Denny ' s hobby has always been model airplanes, which accounts for his desire to win the golden wings. His affable spirit and industrious nature will carry him to great heights. WARREN, ASKANSAS Coming to us from the fish laden streams of Arkansas via more than a year in the Navy, Larry has divided his interests among a girl, football, and food. Almost any weekend one could find him rushing out to one of his haunts to devour a steak. As for the girl and foot- ball, Larry excels at both, being engaged and heading up the JV team. Always in a rush, he was often re- ferred to as " Hurry-up " Derby. It was a boon when Second Class Year rolled around, as he was an ardent music lover, and owned stacks of records of all kinds. Larry ' s love of fun often pulled him into trouble— and even extra duty. On the serious side, investigation showed him to be a steady, dependable worker who was everybody ' s friend and who kept his nose in the boat. OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA Nurtured by the California sunshine and conditioned by an Irish temperament augmented by thirty months in the Marine Corps, Lew has pretty well taken life here in his stride. If it weren ' t for Lew ' s height, he would probably have been unknown to those who weren ' t in immediate contact with him, for he was very self-con- tained and quiet. Academics never gave Lew much trouble— his main worry was his receding hairline. His extra-curricular activities consisted mainly of making the acquaintance of all beautiful women he saw. Lew has the respect and admiration of all, and, at this, the start- ing point of his career as an officer in the Marine Corps, he takes with him our best wishes for success and happiness. 114 ATLANTA, GEORGIA Big John came from the heart of Dixie. Inspired by his Uncle Robert of " Scratch-one-flattop " fame, he intended to come to Navy and laid his plans while still in gram- mar school. He attended Mercer University, after which he spent a year in Uncle Sam ' s infantry. On the eve of his departure for Europe, his appointment to Navy came through. Big John was a definite athlete, and played both basketball and football while at the Academy, but his knack for breaking an arm or leg in the middle of each season hampered his chances for N ' s on his B-robe. He believed that the year passed faster if you lived from week to week, and there seldom passed a week-end when Big John was not dragging; many and lovely were the lucky drags he introduced to Navy. hi in liere lould I ' lin ■con- Hii llie toi tort- ifine :(eis OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA Some say that John fell asleep going to Washington one summer day of ' 45, and awoke to find himself within the walls. Nevertheless, not one to let an unexpected opportunity slip through his grasp, " Sleepy " entered into the matter with a will, and set an enviable mark in academics. While equally proficient in athletic and social fields, John, early in his career found himself decidedly in favor of the latter, and seldom a week- end passed that this son of Erin via Oklahoma wasn ' t seen with the lady of the hour. Ever with an eye for fun, John could often be found participating in the antics that made the life of the execs one of constant duress. Now that Sleepy has terminated his Academy days, he has his sights set on Naval Aviation, where he will continue with the gentlemanly good will that has so marked his days here. WASHINGTON, D. C. Jim was a na tural for the Academy, entering on Presi- dential appointment with a fine Cadet Corps record from Central High of Washington, plus a year in the Navy. Eddie was known for his capacity to turn in a good job and to finish whatever he started, in which respect he finished high on the list in just about every sailing race during his career at the Academy. Besides making the plebe and varsity storboat sailing teams, Jim was a deadeye from way back, spending the winter months down at the rifle range collecting possibles. A confirmed Red Mike, this stocky little guy much pre- ferred hearing the hum of a lathe over in the Isherwood shops to the sweet nothings of a drag. Still, on proper occasions, he managed to produce some mighty good looking femmes. E C o N A T T A L I O N 115 .

Four years at Navy Tech made him a standard fixture on the batt boxing team, the OAO list, and as a shutterbug of some re- known. His dislike of Maryland weather never pho- hibited his spending part of his leaves in Baltimore with its one woman. Kitten. His pet brag was that he was related to a Confederate General who was court mar- tialed and hung, not even shot. Reared in the crags around Danbury, he stoutly asserted that the guy had it coming for being in the Army, and the wrong one at that. If the Fleet has room for a man who knows his job and does it well, there ' s room for " L. " SUSANVILLE, CALIFORNIA As Susanville, California ' s, gift to the Navy, Scott came to us from the Sierra Nevadas via a semester at the University of California and a year ' s hitch in the Navy. A staunch advocate of the rugged West, he made his name at the Naval Academy by his prowess on the football field, where he was co-captain of the team, and in boxing, as a string of athletic awards as long as he is tall will prove. No mean student, Scotty managed to cool the academics with a minimum of effort and have plenty of spare time left to spend reading his beloved cowboy serials. As far as the fair sex was concerned, Scotty remained a true explorer, and happily upheld the sailor ' s maxim of a girl in every port. MILLIKEN, COLORADO Though Howie was small in stature, there was an air of magnanimity about him. Before entering the Academy, Howie spent two years in the fleet, and so was several lengths in front of the rest of us. He was a master of knots, tricks, and sea stories— the latter being his most famous. An understanding of knots was essential to Howie, for he held down the 121 pound spot on the wrestling team. It was a treat to watch Howie tie up some opponent, as he used such poise and finesse. His finesse and poise were not confined to the wrestling loft alone, though, for he displayed them in every move he made. A true connoisseur, a believer in the benefits of wine, women, and song, a possessor of a sincere desire to make friends with everyone — Howie cannot help but go to the top. 4 1 116 « SEATTLE, WASHINGTON With the advent of " Sticks " career at Severn ' s shore, another page may be written in the proud sago of the land of towering timber and snow capped peaks. Luckily for us, this enterprising young Thespian did not confine his talents to the halls of Bancroft, but soon ad- vanced to broader fields, appearing in a number of the Masquerader ' s productions. While cold winter months inevitably found Jack industriously pursuing the adven- tures of his favorite heroes in the current pulp thrillers, the return of balmy spring breezes soon found him on the diamond as an able pitcher for Navy ' s junior var- sity baseballers. If the day suddenly seems brighter in the old home town during future years, be sure to look skyward, for the chances are that a jovial young aviator will be winging his way over. DILLINGHAM, ALASKA " Mush " , one of Alaska ' s favorite sons, is in the Navy for one main reason, to fly. Having had experience in the northland as a " bush pilot, " he looked forward to aviation classes with great enthusiasm. Born in the state of Washington, he has spent most of his life up in Seward ' s Icebox, and stoutly defends it as the best of all places to live. He attended the University of Alaska for two years, where he was a star man. Un- fortunately, the state of Maryland offered him little op- portunity to pursue his favorite sport, skiing. As far as other hobbies are concerned, he said that sleeping and women were outstanding, but when asked what he wanted to see written here, he replied, " Not too much. " Jt hwt £. lishbBMfn, m LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA With pipe in mouth and guitar in hand, John helped to shorten many a long evening during the dark ages by his tall tales of old Mexico. We had no doubts that Juan could have captained the radiator squad had he not abandoned it during the winter and spring to com- pete in gymnastics and track on the plebe and varsity teams, winning numerals in both sports. In occasional bursts of energy, he also participated in company soccer and football. John maintained that his favorite occupa- tions were hunting and fishing, but it is possible that the material gathered for future discussions interested him more than the activities at hand. Wardroom messes throughout the fleet will respond to the ringing laugh and well-stocked repetoire of " Peje Quemado. " E C O N A T T A L I O N 117 • E C o N A T T A L I O N William m. lallon AAONMOUTH, ILLINOIS " Steamboat " arrived here one bright day in ' 45, and neither the system nor academics could induce him to leave before his four years v ere up. After attending college in and out of the Navy, at Northv estern, v here he was a SAE, and Cornell, from which he emerged with the rank of Ensign, Bill had little trouble with academics, save Dago, and has helped many of us over the pitfalls of that phase. He was no slouch at dragging, either, but finally settled down to an OAO. Music has ever been one of his chief interests, and, next to his fondness for telling anecdotes after taps, will probably be that for which we will most remember him. Now that graduation time is here, the Navy is receiv- ing as able an officer as the Academy has produced. COLUMBUS, OHIO Paul started his career at Navy shortly after finishing a year at Ohio State University. Well-liked by all from his first day of Plebe Summer, he also commenced to climb academically. Stemming from a legal background afforded by his father ' s service as a judge, Paul main- tained his Interest in politics. We won ' t say Paul was a Red Mike, but he firmly believed that women are a snare and a delusion. He hopes, however, to be happily married someday. Paul has always participated vigor- ously in battalion sports, continually demonstrating how lots of fun can mix with a good game of lacrosse or football. His winning smile and amiable personality will help him greatly throughout his career. FRANKLIN, VERMONT Leaving the green mountains of Vermont behind him, " Rusty " matriculated at the University of Vermont and MIT before Navy. He was a star man, and few were the profs who have not been confused by Dave ' s questions and logic. Following the traditions of the Navy, Dave has had an angel in every port, especially those be- tween Annapolis and his home town. Aside from this, his main hobby, he has found time to make several sports squads, including plebe soccer and lacrosse, and JV soccer. Dave ' s preference for duty runs along en- gineering lines. His dogged determination to excel and logical approach to anything he attempts will insure him a large measure of success. 118 I FULTON, NEW YORK The records show that Steve was launched on his Navy career by the V-12 Unit of Cornell University. Our mem- ories, however, only go back to that hot July day of ' 45 when he ended his first cruise across the Severn with a three foot jump over the six foot span separating M.L. 12 from the Santee Dock. Fortunately, no one has even attempted to keep pace with Jyles these past four years. A man of lesser talents would have flound- ered long ago, but Steve has proved that the no-study technique provides one with a sure-fire means of par- ticipation in the annual June cap-tossing affair. Classes with S.A.G. were a pleasure for all hands, for his ex- tremely high-class snow jobs invariably produced a free ride for his companions. lond retke slions Dove ebe- I this, wol Odd jen- lond 0 ' t ' A LONG BRANCH, NEW JERSEY While in V-12 training at Dartmouth, Frank packed his ditty bag and headed for the Severn ' s shore. Active in athletics and extra-curricular activities in high school and college, he continued adding to his laurels here in batt football, company football, and plebe tennis, as class treasurer, and as a gifted artist. The subtle humor of his cartoons in the Trident Calendar and his many feature illustrations as Art Editor of the TRIDENT demon- strated his fine artistic ability. Despite this overwhelm- ing activity, he wrote his OAO every day and starred academically. His broad versatility, quiet demeanor, and exacting efficiency have made him one of the most respected men in the Brigade. Frank intends to earn his wings as soon as possible. PATERSON, NEW JERSEY In his own little way. Grab was easily the most outstand- ing man at the Naval Academy, for, although a good little boy at heart, he soon became the terror of every D.O. His two most frequent hangouts were the extra- duty squad and his bunk. A Ravel-Munroe fan, a killer at the tiller, and founder of the " terrible trio, " Grab, with his mild mannered personality in all its explosive forms, has dug a niche deep in the stone of Bancroft. Academics were no worry; witness his successful efforts to turn the juice lab into an amusement park. With his physique of gargantuan proportions, he was a terror on the football field. His sense of humor and spirit of co- operation will take him far in life, and insure his success in any endeavor— Marine Corps, stand by! E C O N A T T A L I O N 119 E C O N A T T A L I O N n iiiiam C. QwanU Jr. COLUMBUS, GEORGIA From the deep South, Bill came to the Academy via the fleet competitives after fifteen months of service. With plenty of musical talent, he made our days much more pleasant with his piano playing, accompanying the midshipman choir in his church, and playing for the Musical Club Show Plebe Year. Once past Plebe Steam, academic worries were over for Bill. He won few awards in athletics, but did participate in company soccer, steeplechase, and cross country, and occasionally visited the pool to see what Coach Warner had for the sub squad. Willie was one of those wardroom pests who drank three cups of joe a meal and was always ready for a refill when the pot was gone. Never fazed by hard work, and always giving his best. Bill will surely finish on top. NEWARK, NEW JERSEY Mick had already served one year in the Navy as an Ensign when he began again at the bottom of the ladder on the Severn. All hands soon found that his room was an auxiliary library, and was good for an interesting novel. He made a reputation for himself in the Quarter- deck Society as early as Plebe Year. He was, moreover, a firm believer in physical as well as mental develop- ment, and his long sessions of weight lifting have given him a sturdy physique. At all of the hops, he could be found upholding his reputation as one of the better rhumba and sambo men in the brigade. Milt plans to draw on his pre-Academy experience in Naval liaison with the State Department to obtain an assignment in foreign service. . ' iViiliawan QrahtMtn PAYNE, OHIO Bill Graham— the fellow who was always ready to lend a hand, whether it be in having a good time, or getting a job done. This well described one of ' 49 ' s former dog- faced boys. Bill come to the Academy after seeing service with the Infantry and then the Navy, as well as some time at Ohio State, so he can be classed in the category of the more experienced. His major interest was the Navy, though, due in no small respect to the Navy Air Corps. Here, Bill was always on the go, either with waterpolo, basketball, or the M.E. Club— and somethimes even Academics, although they didn ' t hold much terror for him, and he usually spent his time planning the next weekend. He claimed to be the ex- plorer type, but our bets are down that he ' ll be trapped before many moons after graduation. 120 WENATCHEE, WASHINGTON After deserting the " Apple Capital of the World " long enough for a year each at Wenatchee J.C. and Cal Tech, Ham gave Greeley a perverse look, and came East to Navy. Always a math-and-related-subjects slash, he found little to v orry him over in Sampson and Maury, and passed on his savvy to the rest when we needed it. Ham combined his shutter-mania with an interest in Russian to become the Will Hays of the Rooskie Cloob, and was a faithful member of the Quarterdeck Society as well. After a slow start. Ham dragged often and, although he had varying success, including near-pos- session of the coveted company brick, he never found that femme fatal, and never gave up— so he lives to explore a larger field. CLEVELAND, OHIO A little man with a large book was probably Bill, and the book was probably Plato or Aristotle. He was one of our intellectuals, and was more often reading the classics than studying a text, but since before Navy, he had spent two years at Ohio State studying Juice, it is little wonder that he slept during exam weeks. His love for sleeping was surpassed only by the pleasure he got from Maryland ' s climate, and on the warmest day he could be seen " collar up and buttoned, " and still shivering. Plebe Year, Bill was active in sports, being on the plebe crew, and rifle team, but Youngster Year he joined the squad that ran the obstacle course every afternoon. After that, he joined the radiator squad, and was a member ever after. MILLER, SOUTH DAKOTA From the badlands came " Lover " Hall— why Lover? No one knew definitely, but it seemed appropriate, as everyone readily identified him with that name, despite his cries of being a Red Mike. In his first years here, Wayne was noted for his athletic prowess, having par- ticipated in lacrosse and football, and earning places on both the plebe and junior varsity teams in both. But the flesh is weak; he finally found his calling in the steerage, and was true to the radiator squad from then on. When we think of the people we have associated with during our four years on the Severn, Wayne will certainly stand out as one who could be always counted on as a friend. He always had a pleasant word for everyone, and regardless of how things were going, he could be counted on to find the bright side of life. s E o N A T T A l_ I O N 121 s E C o N A T T 4 L I O N NORWICH, NEW YORK From Norwich Chazz brought his sparkling smile and ever-ready wit to Navy. Although his high school days were spent in collecting many and varied athletic awards, he was a radiator man through and through at Navy. As an explorer, Chazz has kept up with the best in pursuing the fairer sex, and his woeful stories have seldom failed to raise the listener ' s deepest sym- pathy. Although no bucket, Charlie could be found al- most every Sunday night and after evening chow in the midst of bull sessions, rather than hitting the books. With an eye on the Navy as a career, and a smile in his heart for all the world to share, Charles W. will long be remembered by his classmates and their best wishes will always be with him. CLARKSTON, GEORGIA The greatest contrast the Academy had seen in years was afforded by Tom (the little man) and his wife. Big John Dixon. Young Stud Hensler arrived here via a fleet appointment, sporting Navy Aircrew-man ' s wings and a record of thirty months of service behind him. His ever present smile, sense of humor, and fine per- sonality tagged him as a character from the world " go " . When not causing half the company to roll with laughter. Kayo enjoyed himself by being a solid mem- ber of the radiator squad, even wearing a gold radiator on his B-robe. His passion for wine and song was un- bounded. The woman angle was noticeably absent, except for the OAO back home. ' 3frcdew ' i€h JD. Vtcsiey, Jr. MALIBU, CALIFORNIA Before coming to Naval, Fred had spent two years at the University of Texas which he left to join the Navy, and was then given a Fleet appointment to the Academy after a two year hitch. His personality developed during his tour of duty here, and he improved his taste for good music, good literature, and good looking women. He didn ' t drag often, but when he did, she was sure to be something special. His athletic tendencies made him a natural for the radiator squad, on which he was a four-year varsity man. He spent his spare time in photography, and his colored pictures of Bancroft beer parties rank with the best. Fred hopes to enter Engi- neering during his naval career to prove to the Steam Department that their grades didn ' t mean everything. 122 Charles 7. UUcy SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA Chuck was one of the older men in the class, having had a year of college and two years in the Navy before coming to the Academy via a Fleet Appointment when his original dentistry plans lost out to a career with the Fleet. Leave, liberty, and recreation were his forte, and he could usually be found working at one of the three. His ideas of recreation ranged from bull-sessions to dragging, and he held his own at both. Chuck ' s con- sistency and reliability are his strong points and will stand him in good stead when he joins the Fleet. If the luck of the Irish stays with him, he will go far.

Joseph £ . liddcw, Jr. AUBURN, NEW YO RK Most of the time Joe was quite happy here at Navy, but, although definitely a twenty-year man, he con- tinually longed for Auburn, there to putter around and relax. Despite a stint in bell-bottomed trousers, under which circumstances most developed a " cherchez la femme " complex, Joe was a confirmed Red Mike. He still kept fairly busy, though, thanks to the Academics and the local movie palaces, in which he was almost a stockholder. As well, he had a lively interest in sports, particularly baseball and golf. His ever-present sense of humor and his cooperative spirit were responsible for his host of friends. We all wish him well as he heads for the Fleet and those wings. Bernard C ' Mtttqan CARBONDALE, PENNSYLVANIA " I ' m in love, " proclaimed Bernie after every blind date, but no one took him seriously, for we all knew he was true to the one back home. Not only a great lover, he was also an athlete, having captained his high school football and basketball teams and, winning letters in both at Colgate, where he had a year of engineering. Here he went out for football and baseball, earning a first string spot on the plebe team, and later playing two years of JV football. But his greatest claim to fame was that he was from Carbondale. To describe his love for his home town would be impossible, so, in his own words, " I ' m from the hard coal region of Pennsylvania, and proud of it! " His time in the Army Air Forces must have convinced him that he wanted to fly, for he now has his sights set on a career in the Navy Air Corps. E C o N A T T A L I O N 123 s E C o N A T T A L I O N SANDS POINT, NEW YORK Life for those of us who knew the Corsario was never dull, for his frequent engagements with the academics were flavored with sea stories from the tomb of J.P.J. Quite naturally. Salty found a love for sailing races, but his greatest achievement here was a well-earned berth on the varsity fencing team. Perhaps the most amazing examples of his dexterity were the realistic and natural sketches which he turned out endlessly. Thriving only on salt water, Salty returned on cruises to the foc ' sle, where he gave extra instruction in Seamo to one and all. His love of martial music inspired him to form " Ingall ' s Dragoons, " made up of talented plebes in the Drum and Bugle Corps. Salty having success- fully completed his campaign, we are proud to pipe him into officer ' s country. CHICAGO, ILLINOIS Prior to his entrance to the Naval Academy, Jim spent a year and a half in the V-12 program where he picked up the odd habit of falling asleep whenever anyone lec- tured. Despite this seeming handicap, he still managed to come through with a surprisingly keen understanding of what was going on. Jim spent a great part of his free time in church activities, not only proving to be a very capable Sunday School teacher, but also proving himself a real leader among the older folks of his church. He did more than just read his Bible daily, he mode a real study of it, and this proved to be a definite influence not only on his own life, but also on those of us who have hod the privilege of knowing him. PLAINVIEW, TEXAS Though Bob didn ' t always rave about the Lone Star State, there was little doubt that he considered it the garden spot of the earth. After high school, where he won three football letters, he joined the Navy for six months. His first year here he sparked the plebe foot- ball team, then moved up to the varsity, where he piloted the team from the quarterback position and earned the nickname of " Crusher " from the way he pushed opponents aside to get off his famous passes. We marveled how he could hit his receivers so accur- ately, when in Bancroft he could hardly recognize any- one more than five yards away. Always ready to help. Bob got along well with everyone and will always do his best in any job. i ... K ' Em " ' X 124 t « Sio, fee lie for si, lie foot.

Since then he has firmly established him- self as one of the progressives, not to be held back. When the class visited England, he was not satisfied with just stopping there— he went out and proved to us that he really had castle-dwelling relatives in Eire. At present, he hasn ' t decided to what branch of the ser- vice he hopes to devote his efforts, but it seems that Steam and all it ' s pitfalls held no terror for him, and it ' s our guess that the watertenders and firemen will soon acquire a new boss on watches. AAENDOTA, ILLINOIS Born in San Diego, Jim hod no sooner become accus- tomed to life than he was whisked away to a distant town in lllinois-which he now calls home. It was there he first became acquainted with school, and, as the case with most of us, it definitely affected him. He was on the road to education. After high school, he entered Georgia Tech, where he majored in Mechanical Engi- neering, but, being of an old Navy family, he was not destined for that sort of life. Jim ' s athletic prowess was well above average, but his lack of size limited him to intramural sports. This brings to mind two of his am- bitions: the invention of a better built-up shoe, and the elimination of tall women. After graduation, Jim plans to continue his career in the capacity of a Naval Aviator. Chawtcs m. C. Jon «s, Jr. HOUSTON, TEXAS Jonesy is a product of J. H. Reagen High School, Hous- ton, where he starred on the rifle team. Five semesters of Navy V-12 college training at Texas A M and Millsaps College, Jackson, Mississippi, qualified Jonesy in an academic way. His one year of football at Mill- saps presaged his activity in that sport here. He won numerals in plebe football, an NA on the JV squad Youngster Year, and played varsity ball his last two years. As if this was not enough, he was irreplaceable in winning a Brigade Championship in unlimited touch football and found time to show promise on the batt lacrosse squad. His close friends affectionately call him Bolivar, for the Walt Disney character of the same name. E C O N A T T A L I O N 125 E C O N 4 T T 4 L I O N HACKENSACK, NEW JERSEY Jim was an Air Cadet for a year during the war before attending the Academy. Here was an all around good fellow who was always in there plugging. He partici- pated in all types of popular sports and even spent Christmas leave skiing and ice skating in the daytime. At the Academy, Jim was best known for his fleetness afoot and his ability to scamper with the pigskin in batt football. Academics have had their rough spots for him, but in general, J.K. has consistently stood in the upper quarter of his class. Most Navy men have a girl in every port but Jim had one in every college east of the Ozarks. After graduation, Jim hopes to become a Naval pilot, continuing a full and successful life. ROCKFORD, ILLINOIS When Maclean decided to trade Naval Aviation for the Naval Academy, he was off on what proved to be virtu- ally a four year vacation, for Mac prided himself on his easy-going attitude toward both the executive and academic departments. His disinclination to take a strain academically left him much time for athletics. First he won his numerals in plebe soccer. Then the ex- perience gained captaining his high school rifle team back home at East High in Rockford did a great deal to keep Navy consistently in the win column after Mac became a valuable member of first the plebe, and later the varsity, rifle teams. Now as we separate, we all join in wishing for Mac duty that will provide for him a soft sack.

" His obsession for flying has manifested itself in many ways, one being that he has his private license, and another his desire to enter the Air Corps subsequent to graduation. If a love for flying is a major factor towards becoming a successful pilot, Jerry will be one of the best. Basketball hod a priority on Jerry ' s free time. He has won numerals and letters playing company, plebe, and JV ball. Always ready for a party, bull session, or any other diversion, Jerry has won a host of friends here at the Academy who wish him the best of everything. 126 HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT A resonant fenor voice echoed through Bancroft— it could only be that of Herb. Whenever we felt low, we would implore him to give us a bit of sunshine, a little song. " Come on, Herb sing " was our cry. Usually we got more than we bargained for. Before Navy, Herb attended Trinity College in Hartford for a year, as well as serving a year in the Navy. Although not a varsity man, he was recognized by all as the fastest man in the company, and was proficient in all sports, including ping-pong. To our knowledge. Herb never missed a hop his last three years. Hopless weekends? That was when " Kindl ' s Guide Service " flourished. His amiable qualities have made Herb popular among his class- mates, and we know that his friendly disposition will always be with him, and that he will make more friends wherever he goes. s E C O N tVilliam C. tiing YONKERS, NEW YORK After Birch Wathen School, Bill started at Yale on a scholarship, but, after a month gave up the " campus " for the " yard. " Here he found it easy to keep ahead of Academics and still have time for good books and good music. On any non-dragging weakend one could find him with Aristotle or the Emperor Concerto. " Snow- shoes " tried company soccer and steeplechase, but settled for water polo, where his slightly large feet were an asset for once. This is one member of the flying squadron who was not satisfied with just dragging Amer- ican women, and had some of his queens all the way down from Canada. Just mention the subject— he was always ready and willing to take pro or con, and his opinion was sure to be " 180° " out of phase with yours. WHITTIER, CALIFORNIA Since the life of a Naval officer appealed to Logo dur- ing his two years at the University of Washington ' s NROTC, he came to Navy despite its distance from his beloved California homeland. Many of the early courses were review work for Logo, but he tied the loose ends together until he had them cold, and went on to excel in the unfamiliar courses also. He was also known as Red Mike Lake, not because of his red hair and first name, but because he found dragging here too much bother, especially with his California queens out of reach. While others dragged. Lego relaxed on his sack, read novels, listened to Bach and Beethoven, and in- dulged in his favorite sport, swimming. Without his big grin and unparalleled wit, our days at the Academy would hove been incomplete. A T T A L I O N 127 E C O N A T T A L I O N RUSSEL, KENTUCKY Lem came to Navy from the Kentucky hills via Berea College in the heart of the blue grass region, v here they specialize in blue blood horses, moonshine, and Kentucky colonels, suhl Although a three year letter- man in high school football, " De " decided that the best exercise here was a few winks every afternoon. When routed from his sack, however, he would always turn in a good exhibition in a soccer game. His constant companion was one of his pipes, and his biggest hobby was carving them. While the rest of us saw the world, and got pictures in our minds, Lem got them on film. He made pictures of everything, and we could thank him for many of our scrapbook views. Regardless of what he chooses, Lem will always be popular with his generous personality and good humor. MANHATTAN, NEW YORK A former pre-med student at Fordham University, " Pavel " is still trying to forget the time he spent in the army. Always a mainstay of the company teams, he spent most of his free time trying to keep in contact with a seem- ingly endless number of girls throughout the world. Having spent a good many of his younger years in Europe, Paul ' s trans-Atlantic cruises gave him a chance to look up old haunts and old friends— to him, every- one was an old friend, and every place was home. His room was an all hands ' rate, and his mind open to all interesting thoughts and suggestions. Many mem- bers of the other sex have found his heart as open as his mind. Although the past held fond memories for him, Paul expected future travels and adventures to keep away the boredom he found in routine. U ilUam S ' £atnf, Jr. ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA A Navy Junior, Bill is well traveled, having visited forty- five of the states, besides living in China, Japan, and the Philippines. He was president of his class in high school, and there weren ' t many places at Navy where Bill didn ' t stand high. Academics?— whenever the grades were posted, his name was starred. Athletics?— on ex- cellent swimmer, he won numerals and letters in plebe and varsity swimming, as well as battalion swimming and water polo. Seniority?— No. He was the baby of our company. He was a member of the Boat Club, having earned his yawl command Youngster Year. With his OAO living in Arlington, he dragged at every op- portunity. Bill looks forward to entering Naval aviation after graduation. 128 I I (William g. £iwwlcr. Jr. LANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA Bill, who hails from just about every part of the U. S., came to Navy with two loves— the state of Michigan and a girl from Ohio. Having worked his way from the bottom as an apprentice seaman, he spent a year as an enlisted man at Boinbridge before arriving here on the shores of the Severn. Bill was one of the few who could say he came here without graduating from high school. This curious circumstance proved to be no impediment to his academic success. Although a snappy dresser and a good dancer, he did remain steadfastly loyal to his OAO. If he could be torn away from his letter writing, he was always ready for a round of bridge or a bull session. His good sense of humor and his friendly spirit should carry him far in any field he enters. ST. JOSEPH, MISSOURI Norm came to the Naval Academy after serving two years in the Army. He was in Europe during the battle of the Rhin e and returned to the United States with the Purple Heart, two stars on the European theater ribbon, and a sergeant ' s chevrons. Six months at the University of Kansas helped sharpen the razor that Norm has been wielding mercilessly since academics first began. During Plebe Year he proved that his Combat Infantryman ' s Badge was no mistake by holding down a spot on the plebe rifle team. Though studious, he could usually be seen dragging every week-end. His extreme conscien- tiousness and acute mind will assure Norm definite suc- cess in any endeavor the Navy may call upon him to per- form. £l9t d §i. £audcrdala BEAUMONT, TEXAS Lloyd, eighth cousin of the Earl and heir apparent to the Scottish clan of Lauderdale, is one of our vociferous representatives of Texas. When it came to academics, he did right well, and any one of the many who came to him for help will attest to his knowledge of this " Navy gear. " " Laugre " was a three sport man before, and here at Navy was a moundsman for the baseball team, as well as playing on the company basketball and battalion golf teams. His extra-curricular activities ran toward women, if the big boy ever ran toward any- thing. Tex said he was looking forward to LST duty off Galveston Bay, and later, perhaps, to entering aviation, in which he served a year before coming to Navy. • E C O N A T T A L I O N 129 E C O N A T T A L I O N MONTHALIA, TEXAS This fighting ex-marine really put the metropolis of Monthalia (pop. 30 souls) on the map. To hear his drawl, one would believe he was a sure bet for the radiator squad; but Tex ' s bathrobe was practically a solid display of gold awards. Not only did he play varsity football as a plebe, but big Randy also threw the javelin on the track team and won the heavy- weight boxing championship of the Academy. Big num- ber 56 brought joy to our hearts with his bruising tackles and crushing blocks on the gridiron, but he was one of the most easy-going men in the class. Tex was just about as far from a slash as one could be, but his name was always conspicuously absent from the trees. His driving spirit will carry him far. GREENVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA Another born and bred Southerner, Ted was always available to uphold the excellence of that worthy region against all comers, especially in regards to its women and fine foods. Tackling every task with a ready smile and boundless energy, he made everything at the Academy seem amazingly simple. Never worried to any extent by academics, he could always be found on week- ends with one or both of his favorite diversions— sailing and dragging. He regards his summer cruises as the highlights of his sojourn at Navy Tech. He never seemed to tire of watching bos ' ns splice lines and liberty boats making a gangway landing. It isn ' t hard to visualize Ted as an old salt twenty years from now, and still pleasing to the ladies. MOUNT PLEASANT, IOWA " J.B. " must have liked naval schooling, for he was in V-12 at Kansas and a two year man at NAPS before Navy. Here he had two missions: one to improve his sack drill, and the other to discover a way to get more chow between " Carry On " and " March Out. " On both counts he rates a " Well Done. " During the week, Jim spent his afternoons in the gym playing handball or breaking punching bags, and on weekends he headed across the Severn to the links. His Saturdays were filled by Photo Club darkroom work, or by Mechanical Engi- neering Club field trips, for Jim was one of the luclcy few who entered and left with the same home town OAO. Perhaps that was why his eyes twinkled even more whenever the cry " Yea Furlough " rang through the Mess Hall. I 130 : CEDARHURST, NEW YORK From the teeming millions of New York, the outstanding are chosen for duty at the Academy. Such a one was Don Lister. His appointment came while he was holding down the waist gunner ' s position on a Navy PBY. A quick transfer to the States, a little boning at NAPS, and Don was a Midshipman. He became interested in sailing, but his duties with the Stage Gang kept him from seriously attempting to win a letter. This was just right for Don, who didn ' t like the week-in, week-out practice demanded by varsity sports. His easy flow of party chatter and his infallible memory for a good joke made him a favorite with all. I ; tos in jefote fe his iiiofe bo u™ oil Of !od«l iilld Engi- lucky town even (ough BAYSIDE, NEW YORK George came to the Academy straight from a year as a Navy control tower operator on San Nicolas Island off the coast of California, via the Fleet exams. He had a fairly easy time academically, having completed two years at R.P.I., and put his spore time to good use in soccer, where he not only acted as team clown, but succeeded in booting his way to the varsity squad his Plebe Year. He also found company and batt sports, such as lacrosse, fieldball, and pushball, wonderful op- portunities to beat in the heads of his opponents. What with his wise cracks, fiery arguments, and completely fouled-up love life, George managed to keep us all laughing for four years, and will be a welcome addi- tion to the Fleet, even with his slightly fiendish sense of humor. §leqin«Mld m. mathctt PHOENIX, ARIZONA For a former landlubber, Reg showed salty interests at Navy, for if there was anything he preferred to sleep- ing. It was using his yawl command to sail the Spindrift loaded with classmates— and, of course, their drags. He never had academic trouble— rather, when he stopped letter writing and glanced at his books, he excelled. In addition to managing and participating in gymnastics, Reg belonged to the Spanish Club, the LUCKY BAG cir- culation staff, and was our company representative. Like most, Reg found Second Class cruise the best, for with his blond hair, ind despite his limited vocabulary, he was a natural good will ambassador to Swedish womanhood. Reg is sure to improve diplomatic rela- tions on any foreign cruise the Navy plans for him. s E C o N A T T A L I O N 131 I, E C O N A T T A L I O N FREMONT, NEBRASKA From the plains of Nebraska came Chuck Martin, bring- ing all the assurances and mannerisms of the Mid-West with him. Serious and sincere from the start, Chuck had no trouble with the academics and as a result had much free time for his hobby— women. Dragging occupied the major part of his week-end time. He had the typical mid-westerner ' s tall spare build, and this he adapted to the cross-country and track squads. In addition to his love of the various sciences, he enjoyed music and developed a taste for the classics — and this even though he couldn ' t carry a tune himself. He faced every situa- tion with a cool logic— a trait which served him well while he was here and which will serve him well after graduation. LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA Like all good Californians, Bob said that Maryland ' s rain was the worst he had ever seen. By heritage, he should have excelled in the engineering spaces of the North Carolina, but drills found him dozing on powder bags in the handling room. Perhaps the weight of the extra sea bag loaded down with hair restorers was re- sponsible for his lethargy. Having attended Urban Mili- tary Academy, Maxie did not find the discipline severe. He always roved about his OAO, but we couldn ' t un- derstand how one girl could change so between week- ends. Slapsie always sought a letter from that girl- any girl. Seriously, a more sincere and loyal friend doesn ' t exist, and we are looking forward to serving with Bob again. PITTSBURG, KANSAS Born and bred on a Kansas form, Hal was the picture of health and happiness the year around. Admired and liked for his almost (we all hove our days) perpetual good humor, he was the subject of quite a bit of running, especially for his unyielding devotion to ograrianism. A term at Kansas State Teacher ' s College and two years at Notre Dame in V-12, coupled with his industry, have made him a very successful scholar. His extra- curricular activities consisted primarily of " cherchez la femmeing, " and thus far he has managed to avoid any entangling alliances. Hal plans to go into Naval Avia- tion as soon as possible, and that day will be a good one for the Air Corps. 132 dure onil ol Ding, lism, two Bl[y, Klro- alo ony £wing §1. nteDanatd, Jr. SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA Although he started out in this world to be a doctor, Mac became sidetracked into the fighting annals and has been fighting ever since. First he fought his way through military school, then the Army and Navy en- listed ranks, and finally wound up at Navy Tech. His one aim in life is to have one of those eight columned southern mansions with plenty of juleps growing close at hand. Although always complaining about the diffi- culty of keeping his head above academic water, he generally managed to keep his ankles above the sur- face, too. Being a believer in the old adage of safety in numbers, kept himself surrounded by a bevy of females and frequently had to be rescued from this danger. ChiMwtcs n. (tnat M ESMONT, VIRGINIA It was a constant source of amazement to all how the Colonel, Honolulu born, could have developed such an air of Southern aristocracy, for he is a firm believer in the mint julep as a national institution. His coming from the center of Southern culture, Esmont— population 75— possibly accounted for this attitude. Ten minutes after an unexpected formation, Charlie would happen on the scene, and even during expected formations, he main- tained his reputation by ambling in long after the late bell had died. A Navy junior. Chuck entered the Academy after service as a quartermaster on an oiler in the Mediterranean. Admiral Mays ' fleet will be fully equipped with garden instruments so Charlie can con- tinue to be a gentleman farmer even at sea. TACOMA, WASHINGTON Besides fishing, the sport of his Northwest, of which he is so proud, Mac is interested in music and women. After organizing and playing in his high school dance band, he played a mean tenor sax in the NA-10, and managed the same outfit Second Class Year. As for the fairer sex, Mac ' s locker has never failed to occupy the mate for at least ten minutes, and his mail outnumbered that of his wives three to one. Mac played plebe base- ball and patrolled the keystone sack for Coach Bishop ' s team. Besides baseball numerals, and an NA, he col- lected several numerals for company cross country and steeplechase. Having had two years in the fleet, Mac took all this Navy stufF with plenty of laughs and little strain. E C O N A T T A L I O N 133 • E C O N A T T A L I O N ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA Mac made the rounds of all the prep schools before he finally decided that Annapolis was just as good as a place to relax as the pool hall back in Erie. This ex- blast furnace man believed that it was absolutely neces- sary to take the minimum amount of strain in academic fields— but not in the sporting world. EIroy did a 4.0 job as a varsity end and was a pistol mainstay until an acute case of sack nostalgia forced him to spend quiet afternoons with another spicy novel. This character ' s fantastic ability in avoiding feminine entanglements made him the envy of his oft-cissed companions. The gal who finally runs him aground will definitely be dif- ferent from the rest of flock. He hopes to take a crack at aviation before he is through. McKEESPORT, PENNSYLVANIA Mac came from a city close enough to Pittsburgh so that he never saw the light until he came to the Acade- my. His pet hate through his four years here has been the beds— none yet to accommodate his six foot three inches. By looking at Mac ' s bathrobe one could tell that he belonged to the biggest athletic squad at the Academy. Where most fellows had N ' s or numerals sewn, he had a cloth radiator. He never let the aca- demics get the best of him, and spent most of his free time in the Photo Club darkroom. His three loves were dragging a different woman every time, the air corps, and noise. This last love got him a position as cymbal player in the Drum and Bugle Corps. Mac ' s helpful and understanding nature made him an excellent roommate and a friend to all. ' B ' gtnh ntcsscnqcr EMM BELLEVUE, WASHINGTON Frank " Moose " Messenger came to the Academy after a stiff academic siege in three Washington state high schools, Farragut boot camp, and the V-12 unit at Gonzoga University of Spokane. An ardent lover of his native West Coast, he still prefers the atmosphere at the Messenger domicile at Hunt ' s Point on Lake Wash- ington. His most notable achievement at this institution, other than barely squeezing past exams with no study, was playing halfback on a championship company touch-football team and still being the slowest man on the field. He preferred his own circle of friends to a general mingling in the Academy ' s extra-curricular activities, as he preferred cramming all his social pleas- ures in leaves, week-ends, or football trips, disdaining to drag in Annapolis very often. 134 CHICAGO, ILLINOIS " Uncle B " had ten months as an aircrewman, during which the closest he ever got to a plane was to guard one. After Todd School, where he captained the foot- ball team, he spent two years at Northwestern, where he took a pre-architecture course and won his letters in freshman football and basketball. Always a slash, he belonged to Pi Mu Epsilon, an honorary math fra- ternity. As well as company football and basketball, Burt played plebe and varsity baseball, winning several numerals and letters. Burt ' s specialty at Todd was act- ing in Shakespearian plays, and he retained his Vitamin Flintheart characteristics, elaborating on any story with indescribable gestures. His ambitions will be fulfilled when he gets recruiting duty on Lake Michigan. BOWLING GREEN, OHIO On the way to Navy, Lou attended Bowling Green High School, where he was president of the Science Club, and Bowling Green State University. Here at Navy, he preferred to get his exercise by stretching himself in a h orizontal position and catching a few winks of sleep when the chance offered itself. When the P. T. De- partment did catch up with him, however, he engaged In volleyball, cross country, and football of the 150- pound variety. Although he managed to be quiet about it, Lou gave a good account of himself with the women, and dragged quite a lot. With his ability to get along with others added to his academic ability, Lou will manage to get ahead in whatever he may try. E C O N A T T A L I O N §lccd C. muihctf ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO From New Mexico Reed came to erase any ideas we might have had about the West ' s being wild and wooly. Interested in aviation and art— his Army poster won a prize— he spent a quiet four years here. With New Mexico Military Institute and Texas Christian University behind— the latter for sixteen months in V-12— , he never had much trouble with academics, and went so far as to join the Mechanical Engineering Club. Between hours of ED Reed found time to engage in company volleyball, fieldball, pushball, track, and boxing. We hope Reed will have better luck with his wives later, for here three resigned and one bilged. We will remember the un- limited store of wisecracks he always could loose on some hapless victim with perfect timing. 135 E C O N A T T A L I O N WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA Mort took quite a ribbing as a Navy junior, but got his revenge on vv ' eek-encis and football trips, living in Washington. After playing on the Interhigh Champion- ship golf steam at Roosevelt High, he swam on the bat- talion and plebe teams, and then won a spot on the varsity, gaining points in backstroke events, and win- ning awards the next three years. Academics gave Mort little trouble indeed, he found time to join the Spanish Club. Mort found second class carrier cruise the best, although he could have done very well without the TBM flights, on which he was always well supplied with paper bags. From past experience gained on that cruise, Mort decided that line duty on anything that stays on the surface would be the most attractive. ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA " Olie " entered the Academy from the fleet, where he had spent two years flying as a Radioman 2 c at Patauxent. He was never molested after the night early in Plebe Year when he spanked a first classman, and from that time on, peacefully pursued his interests in sailing and crew. After trying varsity football for a few weeks, he found rowing more to his liking, and earned his numerals on the undefeated plebe crew. Youngster Year, Olie was a mainstay of the Poughkeepsie Cham- pionship varsity shell. Second Class Year he found time to return to his first love, flying, and obtained his private license. Never needing to strain with the books, he found plenty of time to fly and sail with Janie. In the future, we hope Olie will find a plane with enough leg room and head room for his long frame. JawncM 91 mtMwphtf TUCSON, ARIZONA Murph entered USNA with the first group of candidates from NAPS at Camp Perry. Claiming Tucson, Arizona, for his home, he proudly proclaimed the climate as much as he did his Irish blood. Plebe Year it cost him dearly to wear a green bow tie to evening meal forma- tion on St. Patrick ' s Day, but since then it has become a tradition in the company. Plebe year he won block numerals in cross-country and again as number one miler on the track squad. Each fall and spring saw his activity on these squads. His spare time was divided between dragging, the Mechanical Engineering Club, and radio. He is undecided about a life-time career of Naval life and wants to give it a fair trial, prefer- ably in the Air Corps. 136 BRECKENRIDGE, MINNESOTA Willard, affectionately known as Wig, but called just Pete by most people, was Breckenridge ' s pride and glory. Starring as a basketball and football player there, he carried the sprit of Breck with him to the Academy by his frequent renditions of the Cowboy ' s fight song. Pete ' s red hair and smiling face won for him the confidence of his classmates. Pete liked his chow and could hold his own with any of the wardroom chow hounds. As for girls, he never had an OAO in the strictest sense of the word. On the more serious side he taught Sunday School class and read his Bible daily. He repeatedly gave credit to God for his successes and was more than earnest in his regard for the great Creator. HARRISON, ARKANSAS Dick ' s high school activities included Boy Scout work to the rank of Star Scout and he has continued this habit of starring right through his Academy career, having been qualified by nine months at Arkansas Tech and six months at the University of Arkansas as an electrical engineering major. Dick tells us with his usual smile and a touch of nostalgia, " That was back in my Joe College days. " Immediately after this, he entered the Navy, spending six months divided between Great Lakes and Gulfport. Pahay was the standout half-miler on our plebe track team and also won numerals in plebe cross-country. Since then he has contributed heavily to company strength in fieldball and soccer, plus finding time to pace the batt track squad. DALLAS, TEXAS Big Tom came to Navy from the V-12 at the University of New Mexico, with hopes of eventually entering the Marine Corps. Mastering academics with comparative ease, he devoted his time either to athletics, directing his greatest efforts to football, wrestling, and lacrosse, or to eating someone else ' s chow, or wondering when the next piece of mail from Texas was going to arrive. Although an ardent athlete, his uppermost thoughts were directed along the lines of having a good time, and his friendly smile and manner combined with his excellent sense of humor to make him the cynosure of any gathering. Never a slave to rigid conventions, Tom, with his independence of thought, keen judgment, and resourcefulness, is assured of success. E C O N A T T 4 L I O N 137 mi s E C o N A T T A L I O N CLAIRTON, PENNSYLVANIA As a QM 3 c, Tom served aboard an LCV which carried him to the European Theatre and finally to England where his stay was interrupted by orders to return to the United States for V-12 training at Franklin and Mar- shall. After a year of sweating it out there, he trans- ferred to Navy Tech. Perhaps Tom might be called a Red Mike, having dragged for the first time in the middle of Second Class Year. Dragging was always just a little too much trouble for Tom who loved his Sunday after- noon cribbage game and bootleg coffee. His major sport was varsity wrestling. Though he hasn ' t decided what he would like to do in the Navy, we know his patience and persistence will insure his success. OAK PARK, ILLINOIS Pete is a New Englander who took Greeley ' s advice and went west as far as Chicago. He has been a notorious big dealer and on Youngster Cruise he pulled his big- gest deal— turning into the Naval Hospital sixty miles from Boston and home, where he spent the summer " re- covering. " Academics have been superfluous matter to Pete— gifted as he was with a fine line and quick smile, he kept the profs on his side, which gave him plenty of time to read " that " letter and a book a day. Ac- customed to New England winters, he thawed out only in the spring, at which time he ventured into the open to engage in lacrosse and sailing. Pete will go far and will undoubtedly end up as one of the Navy ' s finest traveling salesmen. P BLOOMINGTON, ILLINOIS From the beautiful plains of Illinois via a year of V-12 duty, Willy Gee came to join the ranks of ' 49. His out- standing popularity while at the Academy was not something new to Bill, for in 1943 he was named " The Outstanding Boy In Illinois " a fact no one learned until he graduated. His specialties were football, basketball, baseball, and track, but just fry to find a sport that he didn ' t follow and you ' ll find yourself completely be- wildered. While a member of the Class Crest and Ring Committee, Bill designed practically all of our class crest. Bill was a member of the Quarterdeck Society and he did such a good job as Company Representa- tive Youngster year that he was re-elected to the job Second Class Year. 138 BETSY lAYNE, KENTUCKY Coming from the land of fast horses and beautiful women (and other interesting things, he says), Gerry has been a refreshing personality to lighten the darker as- pects of the Academy curriculum. Having an instinctive dislike for regimentation, but resolved to try the system, Gerry entered the Navy via boot camp and NAPS on a congressional appointment, it was only after strug- gling successfully through Plebe Steam that the Academy meant more than a prolonged grind. Each passing year denoted an increasing devotion to extra curricular inter- ests such as books, classical music, chess, the Glee Club, and tennis. Although not positive about the best type of duty, this Kentucky lad will meet the future more than half way. iiV-1! iii oil ' OS nol dike jd unlil lie be- idN (los Sociel) the i ' li MANAWA, WISCONSIN After high school, Paul entered Notre Dame for a year in the V-12, and, profiting by this experience, has had little trouble with academics here, using his evenings to help along classmates who were less adroit in the use of the slide rule. Football was his first love. Plebe year he played batt football, and, when the " Mighty Mites " were organized, he was a charter member, winning an NA and two N ' s. In the winter he played football again— this time company football. Paul ' s engaging personality and optimistic outlook towards life will in- sure that his career will be a successful one. The Navy Air Corps will benefit greatly by his presence. FAIRFIELD, IOWA Bob began his career in the Navy with aspirations of wearing the wings of gold, but, feeling that his educa- tion was a more important issue, the powers sent him to Maryville State Teacher ' s College, Missouri, for one year. At this point the Naval Academy entered the picture and Bob had to put off his flight training for another four years. Throughout, Bob has felt that aca- demics hampered extra-curricular activities, but believed that physical condition was a " must " for success, and so has unfailingly worked out an hour a day— once a month. Although his size didn ' t alarm him, his most ecstatic moment occurred upon arriving in Scotland, and the subsequent revelation that he was a giant to the characteristically short Scot native. s E C o N 4 T T 4 L I O N 139 s E C o N A T T L I O N NORTH CARROLLTON, MISSISSIPPI This ever reliable harbinger of good dope and good times succeeded in making life at Navy just a little more enjoyable for both himself and his classmates. " Sands " spent a great deal of his time here in elucidating the intricacies and mysteries of any and every mathematic- ally constructed subject encountered during the four years to less apt classmates. His pre-Navy education included a year and a half of Civil Engineering at Miss. State and a year and a half in V-12 at Georgia Tech. Not too athletically inclined, Sand often could be found in his room engaging in his favorite post-class pastime— the study of Freud ' s theories on the psychological sig- nificance of dreams. His great ambition was to retire to his beloved Mississippi Eldorado and spend the rest of his life recuperating from the strain of education. £ f off . SehaMtnatM NEW YORK, NEW YORK El had attended Townsend Harris High, been awarded a fellowship in music at CCNY, and served nineteen months in the Navy as a radio technician before coming to the Academy. Here he participated in varsity track, plebe cross-country, and battalion sports, in addition to his principal sport, boxing. After a rough year of plebe indoctrination aboard the Spanish table, E.P. was elected class policy representative for the company to restore the severity of days when the system was " hard but fair. " Academics were hardly a match for El; among other accomplishments, he stood first in the class in Spanish. Ellie was a member of the Regimental Library Committee and Spanish Club, and served as Chairman of the Reception Committee. His excellent attitude should result in continued success. BROOKLYN, NEW YORK Always interested in sports. Bob played baseball and wrestled at Penn State for five semesters before coming to Navy. Continuing here, he wrestled, swam, and played baseball on the plebe teams. The next three years he worked with battalion handball and crew, company softball and boxing, JV baseball, and varsity track winning numerals for baseball, swimming, and Softball. Not one to let studies lag, he kept even with the academic departments by studying incessantly. The fresh air fiend of the company. Bob literally froze out most of his roomates by keeping the windows wide open even on the coldest days. Given a carrier with a large deck on which to run, box, and play basketball. Bob will be satisfied, for with his friendly nature, he will have little trouble wherever he may be. f 140 ob fi £ . Sivinsti-i ST. CLOUD, MINNESOTA Ski spent a year in the Navy before coming to the Academy, and plans to continue his career with the Navy Air Corps. Other than the conventional straight- av ay flying bothered him somewhat, but he hoped that was only temporary. Ivan had definite athletic tendencies, having been a member of the plebe basket- ball and lacrosse teams, and later the varsity lacrosse and 150 pound football teams. He came up from the JV lacrosse late Youngster season, and made a very impressive showing against Army. His awards have been numerals in plebe basketball and lacrosse, NA ' s in 150 pound football, and N ' s in 150 pound football and lacrosse. When the days were sad and long. Ski managed to brighten them with his good humor and ever-present smile. BATESBURG-LEESVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA A man of changing moods, Oscar is one of those persons who is never satisfied with the present as witnessed by his changing ambitions. In the years that we ' ve known him, he has decided in turn to become everything from a traveling artist in Europe to a mining engineer in South America. Although a psuedo Red Mike, he could always be talked into taking care of that extra girl for a classmate. Each fall found him the star of his batt football team. A victim of the V-12 program and Re- serve Midshipman ' s School, he arrived at the Academy full of the old Blue and Gold spirit and, if he can escape the clutches of the Supply Corps, hopes to go into sub- marines after graduation. SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA Hailing from an old Navy town, John quickly showed himself proficient in Navy subjects such as Seamo and Aviation, even attaining the rank of " goomaker, first class. " Lacrosse and sailing occupied some of his after- noons, but mostly he enjoyed quiet relaxation on the sack after the day. The high point of his week was Saturday afternoon, and the low Sunday night, when he never tired of relating his weekend experiences to an ever appreciative audience. He was never above the two hundred mark academically, but if perseverance, neatness, and a sense of duty are the qualities of a good Naval officer, J. P. will certainly achieve his goal. He ' ll always be remembered not only by the girls, but also by the friends he leaves behind. E C O N A T T A L I O N ) 141 s E C o N A T T A L I O N Jamet M. JS. Smith COLUMBUS, OHIO JHB, as he will undoubtedly be referred to when his executive ability exerts itself, came to the Academy from V-5 with the intention of entering Naval Aviation the hard way. His sixteen months at John Carroll Uni- versity gave him enough background that he could in- dulge in bridge, his favorite pastime, or sleep, his secondary hobby. AN OAO waiting at home restricted his week-end activities to dining and enjoying a movie out in Crabtown. Though an advocate of the radiator squad as a major sport, Jim was a member of several company teams, earning his numerals in steeplechase and participating in volleyball and basketball. It always amazed us how Happy Jim, after drinking his usual quantities of joe, could sleep through so many classes. He rarely missed a trick, though. JAMESON, MISSOURI This self-styled wheel roared into Severnside straight from NAPS plus an abbreviated tour of duty with a M.T.B. squadron. Strangely enough. Hot Leads man- aged to absorb a little knowledge in the classroom and his high grades permitted him to spend his leisure hours in Bancroft ' s radio shack, where he proved to be one of the biggest headaches that the FCC has encountered in recent years. Although an athletic gun back in the Popcorn Center of the World, he retired from active competition here, claiming that he needed a few free moments to answer fan mail from his feminine admirers. Slim gets a bong out of the Navy and life in general, although he claims he only wants to be an attache at the Carlsberg Breweries. IfO " Si in I llie He of leu on gini Ste ' par con tho I PORT WASHINGTON, NEW YORK Winning his appointment through fleet competitive ex- ams after thirty months in the Navy, Dove had already hod sea duty on the gunboat " Paducah. " After running the hundred in high school, he was a natural to excel in company steeplechase and soccer, also winning num- erals in battalion crew. Having taken in one semester at the University of Vermont, he did not let any of the academics sink him during his course at Navy, though at times he felt partially submerged. A leading pro- ponent of co-education at the Academy, Dave ' s extra- curricular activities consisted primarily of dragging. His ability to change any crisis into a humorous situation will earn him a host of friends, wherever he may be. 142 PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA Though born in the very deep South, Bob now hails from Pittsburgh, which accounts for his nickname of " Smoky. " Class president at Peabody High, he excelled in track there, earning several letters. Prior to entering the Academy, Bob attended Penn State V-12 for a year. He soon established himself here as one of the athletes of the company, playing good soccer, football, and tennis, as well as running cross country. Since he had an OAO at home, Bob ' s diversions did not include drag- ging. Naval aviation was the branch of the service Stew preferred before coming to Navy, and after com- paring life aboard a battleship with the routine of a carrier on cruises, Bob is now even more sure of his choice. ililive ex- I olfeoJy 10 e«el ling ni " !

The " Forehead " spent nine months as a potential flyer but the air corps, with a fearful eye in the rising costs of airplanes, decided his destiny lay in the floating Navy. From boot camp to NAPS to Bancroft were simple steps for our boy. When not engaged in the weekly battles of Hospital Point, Don could usually be found playing golf, tennis, or a cutthroat bridge game. Academics offered little resistance; and that deep perception, coupled with his friendly disposition and subtle humor, should make his twenty years in the fleet successful ones. OGDEN, UTAH Although he is rather modest in most matters, " String " holds his home state in high esteem, claiming that it is the home of the world ' s most beautiful women and best basketball players. It is a tribute to " Bean ' s " taste that one of his " ex ' s " was elected " Miss Utah. " His main interest seems to be sports, in which, in no small way, he is an authority. " Peter Rabbit " spent almost two years in V-12 before the Academy, studying Aero- nautical Engineering at the Universities of Minnesota and New Mexico. This training may have won him over to the air, because he wants to enter Naval Aviation after graduation. Perhaps the thing we will remember most about " Big Red, " next to his smile and friendly disposition, is his willingness to help a classmate. E C O N A T T A L I O N • 143 s E C O N A T T A L I O N • HONOLULU, HAWAII At Navy, George was a long way from his favorite haunts— a sandy Hawaiian beach, a surf board, a coco- nut tree, and, of course, hula girls. The closest George could come to a surf board at the Academy was a dinghy— a surf board with sails— so he joined the varsity sailing team, where he earned his numerals and letters. During non-sailing seasons he played company foot- ball and volleyball and ran steeplechase. Though he did not neglect academics, George always found time to drop in for a visit during study hours and exchange tall tales. His letters to the Navy Department (via official channels, of course) suggesting cruises to Hawaii ac- complished nothing, so George ' s main ambitions are subs in the Pacific and relaxation on the white Hawaiian sands. MADISON, CONNECTICUT Skip entered the Academy after thirteen months at Con- necticut Wesleyan in the Navy program and the Dekes ' . The fact that his desk usually collected a heavy share of those much-sought blue envelopes led him to acquire the distinctive cognomen of " Oomphie. " He centered his extra-curricular activities between Chesapeake Bay in fair weather and the Stage Gang in foul. One of the shrewdest skippers in the Academy, he could make his starboat sit up and talk, while his constructive talents made him a valuable man around the stage. In his younger days he excelled on the trombone until one day he pawned it for $15 in anticipation of a big dragging week-end. Skip found academics no strain, and pulled more than one of us through the rougher parts of those Dark Ages. 9ward m. SiMMawt, Jw. NEW ROCHELLE, NEW YORK A big man with the women in more ways than with just his height, Stu passed most of his week-ends drag- ging. Between snapping photographs of pretty girls and spending time developing them and showing them ofF, Howie kept pretty well occupied. Fourth class year he was on the plebe crew and earned his " 49. " He also participated in company steeplechase, basketball, and volleyball, and with Big Stu ' s 6 ' 5 " frame, how could we lose? One of his vows is to return to Denmark and retrieve those souvenirs that he left in a taxi after such an extensive shopping tour. Because of his height. Big Stu cannot fight those overheads in the fleet, and hopes to be an aviator someday. 144 PASSAIC, NEW JERSEY Although handicapped by a rapidly receding hairline, Al managed to keep the same OAO for his entire stretch here at Navy. He came via Passaic from his native Edinburgh, Scotland, and brought v ith him the inimitable Scottish wit and even temperament. Although not a varsity athlete, Al could be found on the company soccer team protecting his right halfback territory. After working his way up to Fireman 1 c as an electrician striker in the Navy, he earned a fleet appointment and came to the Academy. Alec, hasn ' t had too rough a time with academics, even though he was heard to re- solve " to get high dailies next term " after each set of exams. We expect Al to be a twenty year man and have many friends in the Fleet. NEW LONDON, CONNECTICUT Joe came to us from the ranks of the Marine Corps, and a tougher gyrene never lived. After a running fight with the first class during his Plebe Year, he had obtained enough experience to survive a private war with the Executive Department during the rest of his tenure. Nevertheless, he sowed enough academic seeds to reap a bountiful harvest. Although the smallest member of the " terrible triumverate, " he supplied more than his share of the noise and laughter. Joe ' s spare time was usually spent in lifting weights to build up strength and sleeping to conserve it. Joe remained true to his OAO throughout his vigorous academic career and plans to marry after graduation and have six boys— all Marines. maUfilm J . Chicle TOWACO, NEW JERSEY It did not take Mai long to find that the " Country Club on the Severn " was not the same informal life he had left behind at the School of Ten. Nor did it take ' 47 long to find out that " Midshipman Thiele, 4 c, Sir " had the strongest set of vocal chords in a class of over a thousand plebes. As a result, Mai frequently exercised those chords with " Hell on the Hudson " and other fa- miliar phrases. Plebe Year, Mai started going up to the fencing loft, and two seasons and a lot of hard work later he won a place on the varsity. In the off seasons he helped out the company soccer and gym teams. He was seldom alone on weekends, perhaps because Balti- more was only thirty miles away. We will remember Mai for his even disposition, and his policy of keeping his nose in the boat. E C O N A T T A L I O N 145 E C O N A T T A L I O N John §i. i:M ' illa SMITHVILLE, TENNESSEE After spending a year at Marion College in Alabama, John decided to give Navy a try. His football ability led him to the plebe, J.V., and varsity squads, where he was a promising back until a serious knee injury ended this career. Unperturbed, he immediately got down to work and turned out to be one of the finest radiator men in the Brigade. John was never one to become unduly concerned over difficulties with the Ex- ecutive and Academic Departments, and therefore never seemed to have any worries except his wife. After put- ting in his time with the Navy, John plans to return to Tennessee and tell all the home town boys why they should never leave Smithville. CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA " Ell " spent three years at the Citadel in Civil Engineer- ing, and wore out several pairs of Gl shoes for the Army before Navy. He was one of the few persons who was alert and cheerful even when standing a midwatch on cruise or during the dork ages, and one who never had a Navy day. Any afternoon the thermometer regis- tered above fifty, he would be out on the Severn bailing out his dinghy with the varsity sailors. When it came to boxing, this wiry lightweight always made a good showing in the Brigade competition. A star man who never neglected the books, he always had time to give a needy classmate a lift, as well as to keep an active interest in the Newman, Portuguese, and Mechanical Engineering Clubs. With graduation he hopes to find a place in Naval Intelligence. I ol Id 6i MUNCIE, INDIANA Tom come to us by way of Ball State Teachers College and Notre Dam e, where he had a taste of Navy life as a member of the NROTC. His intelligence and na- tural inclination for study placed him at the top of our class, and before exams his room often resembled an extra instruction classroom. He was interested in every- thing from international politics to marine engineering. Rather than single out one sport for his attention, Waldo applied that old one about " variety being the spice of life, " and relied on track, soccer or basket- ball for his afternoon relaxation. Tom had the distinc- tion of being one of the first members of our class to make Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universifies. 146 ranU C U)alhinu Jr. PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA Whether or not the climate of Tom ' s home state is re- sponsible for his sunny disposition, we ' ll never know, but the " Watt " was popular with all. He found suf- ficient time to participate in company and battalion box- ing and serve as a lacrosse manager. Tommy never dragged any OAO ' s, for he preferred to collect ad- dresses of the pretty girls met after football gomes and at tea fights. When asked whether he intended to marry after graduation, his answer was " Give me time. " Hav- ing had a taste of aviation and line duty on cruises, Tom decided that the only thing for him was subma- rines, being influenced by the fact that his Dad was a sub officer. Judging from his record at the Academy, Tom should always give an excellent account of himself. ALLIANCE, OHIO Bob has the distinction of being one of the shortest men to ever graduate from the Academy, 5 ' 5 " by stretching. Just how much he stretched is our secret, never to be shared with the Medical Department. Culver Military School is proud to claim him as a graduate. He at- tended Mount Union College, Alliance, for one semester prior to entering the Army Air Forces. Following the sport from high school, he won plebe wrestling numerals and could be seen in the loft often in winter months. Other athletic achievements included numerals in plebe soccer, and company soccer and softball. Second class cruise only whetted Bob ' s appetite for the Naval Air Corps and his application for flight training will be soon after graduation. BRISTOL, RHODE ISLAND Possessor of a good sense of humor, Willie did much to bolster the morale of his less fortunate classmates. Our Willie, however, had quite a fight with the " Plumbing School " — the Steam Department— for three terms. Eddie was quite an old salt when it came to sailing and he could usually be found telling the boys how the race should be sailed. During the Thursday afternoon pa- rades we could see Willie beating out a tricky cadence with the Hellcats. But we saw him at his best during our cruises to Europe; he was always willing to try his skill with any language, and he was quite the gay Yankee in the Regent House, London. After graduation Ed plans to enter subs for twenty or thirty years. E C o N A T T A L I O N 147 s E C o N A T T A L I O N a. €Mlph IJinqiing MOUNT AIRY, MARYLAND Buddy has probably spent as much time arguing for Maryland weather as the rest have spent arguing against it. He is one of those who are definitely thirty year men, so we can see that early nearness left its mark. Ying has been one of the more conservative members of the class, always upholding the ways of the system and the Service and when anyone doubted just what was correct, it was certain that he could show the right way. Buddy started at Bullis Prep, and since then has come through each year in steady style with- out undue effort. In fact, he was able to give his fa- vorite interests of German music and literature enough attention to warrant the title of " Baron. " When Ying leaves for the fleet, he hopes to devote his energies to the Amphibious Forces. NUTLEY, NEW JERSEY Don left Nutley with some misgivings, for to him it was and still is paradise on earth. Two years later he took the Fleet examination for entrance to the Naval Acade- my. He had one year of college at Antioch, so he was amply pre pared for the bookwork here at Navy. The system was something new, but it took Don only a few days to find that it was easier to go with it rather than against it. As he had no outstanding interest in sports, he preferred to devote his afternoons in crib- bage, poker, or sack duty. His prowess with the gentler sex soon commanded the respect of all hands, even though he did little dragging. After graduation, Don will pursue his ambition to be a pilot and resume his interrupted flight training. 148 li]:cX W ' . te " .; %■ im o ,T A ' ♦ . ' I R A T T A L I O N • ALEXANDRIA, MINNESOTA Probably Bill ' s steady sense of humor came from the fact that, although he dragged constantly, he never was a candidate for a bricking party. He came to NA from an assortment of Naval training programs, and this experience with Navy ways helped him handle the Executive and Academic Departments with comparative ease. With journalism his first love. Bill worked for the LOG, LUCKY BAG, and TRIDENT from Plebe Year till graduation. He was Managing Editor of the TRIDENT First Class Year, as well as Vice-President of the Trident Society. As well as being active in intramural sports, he moved up to varsity cross country Youngster Year. A potential condidate for Navy wings. Bill had only one definite choice after graduation— Atlantic duty. INDIANOLA, MISSISSIPPI The familiar " you all " was indicative of Dave ' s home port. After two years at Indianola High School, he switched to Swanee Military Academy, where he let- tered in tennis, football, baseball, and basketball, using his spare time for the honor council. As a civilian, Dave entered Georgia Tech, where he majored in mechanical engineering for three terms and joined the SAE fratern- ity. He also spent a short time in the Merchant Marine Cadet Corps before hitting Crabtown. Academics never pushed him hard, so he was active on the intramural squash, speedball, and basketball. He played plebe tennis, and later held down a varsity post. An ever faithful member of the flying squadron, he bore as his greatest cross the shortness of hop liberty. Dale £. shtrt fl PLAINVIEW, MINNESOTA Hailing from the green carpeted hills of the Mississippi valley. Dale, with his English ancestry, belied the belief that all Minnesotans v ere Swedes. That he early showed aptitude to become a leader was shown by his ascend- ency to a seat in his high school ' s governing body, and to the presidency of his class. Like Diogenes and his lantern. Dale began a search for knowledge, a career, and a soul-mate. He found the first two upon his entrance to the Academy. The third he found hidden away in the small village of his birth and immediately imported her to Crabtown. Needless to say Dale ' s main extra curricular attraction was not found within the confines of the yard. His chief interests were classical music, military science, and ye old radiator squad. 150 ya€h £. m«Mtiar NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA A true Southern gentleman in every sense of the word, Jack had little trouble shifting into the swing of things at the Academy. In fair weather he could always be found sailing the Severn in one of the " dinks. " Having been born with a tiller in his hand. Jack was a natural for the ding hy team, after his years of Gulf experience in the " fish " class. When the days grew cold, he turned to the handball courts for his daily diversion from the books. Academically Jack never did take much of a strain, but consistently managed to stay well above average in his duel with the Academic Departments. In the drag department he chose to play the field. He took in his share of hops, but, having no OAO to capture his spare moments, he was not a weekly dragger. s:i : K i - ' i MIAMI, FLORIDA Beck was born in Miami, but that was only the beginning. He attended the University of California for eighteen months and spent two years with the Navy V-5 program. Plebe Summer found him in the boxing ring, and he continued to throw those gloves about off and on during his Academy career; soccer and varsity fencing also found use for the Beckwith coordination. On the extra- curricular side, the Photo Club, and the advertising staff of the LUCKY BAG helped dispose of the left-over hours. He didn ' t mind the Academy routine too much, taking all save Russian in that quiet, capable stride of his, but his heart was always in the clouds. Post-gradua- tion plans add up to " back aloft for the Beck! " With his background of experience and wealth of natural talent, he is sure of many happy landings. y hn £ . Sennit TWIN FALLS, IDAHO As a mechanical engineer at the University of Colorado for three years, first as a civilian, and then as a V-12, Jack managed to acquire a Beta Theta Pi pin and a liking for Denver that even now puts a nostalgic gleam in his eye. Here, although basketball and volleyball occupied him at times, each spring and fall found him crossing shins for the company soccer squad. Plebe Year he devo ted what time was left after academics and " coming around " were over to bridge, at which he was a shark, as numerous opponents will testify. After that, however, he returned to dragging, and few were the weekends he missed Dahlgren Hall ' s little Saturday parties. OAO material never showed up, however, and he left Navy with a free heart, much to the advantage of the fair sex from Norfolk to Timbuctoo. • T I A T T A L I O N 151 • T I A T T A L I O N Uarrw) 7. Hryanl, Jr. PAOLA, KANSAS Bud, as he was afFectionately known, arrived at Navy with his adopted Missouri attitude of " show me, " and soon reversed the field by showing us a warm, congenial personality. Much preferring the radiator ' s warmth. Bud spurned the varsities and contented himself with leading the intramural sports teams and playing mean handball on spare afternoons. We would have heard much of him in sports had not his terrific way with the female of the species consumed a little too much of that valu- able weekend time. His academic motto was " Why study when you con bilge in peace? " but he kept far from bilging. Already a veteran of the early phases of Naval flight training, Bud aims to be " weighing sky anchors " as soon as the powers that be permit it. ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN In coming to the Academy, Benny gave up college life for a chance to become a Naval Aviator. After finishing high school, he joined the V-12 training program, spend- ing a year at Western Michigan, and entering the Aca- demy on a college certificate, so he never had trouble with studies. Athletically inclined, he took part in almost every type of sport, his chief interests being swimming and soccer. He swam on his high school team for three years and participated in plebe and batt swimming at Navy. He took up soccer Plebe Year and was one of the mainstays on the company soccer team until he migrated to the J.V. team. Dick definitely planned to stoy in the Navy hoping to earn a pair of Navy Wings. SAN MATEO, CALIFORNIA Brownie had planned for a Naval career even before he entered Bellarmine Prep for his secondary education, but before coming to Navy, he spent two years at Stanford University in the school of mechanical engineering. He entered the Academy after passing the regular entrance exams to accompany his congressional appointment. The lacrosse stick with which he was usually seen while at Navy Tech was adopted Plebe Summer and put to good use during the succeeding years, for by Second Class Year he had graduated from plebe through J.V. to the varsity team. He also found time to play batt football during Plebe and Youngster Years. His Dago proficiency was due to leaves spent in Mexico City and Acapulco. 152 COLUMBIA, TENNESSEE With a natural nickname and a natural ability for win- ning many friends, this likable Tennesseon took an active interest in his work here, with the conscientious desire to be a success in the Navy. Possessor of a per- sonal library of many treatises on Naval subjects, Toby hopes to enter the sub service after graduation. We best remember him for his unfailing pride in his native state, for his vocal renditions of such classics as " Wagon Wheels, " for his French with a southern accent, and for a practically inexhaustible sense of humor. As orderly as a Mozart symphony, as punctual as the reveille bell (no late formations for this boy), Toby combined a re- liability and efficiency of the highest order with a thor- oughly amiable and considerate nature. WASHINGTON, D. C. There ' ll be Navy wings on Bill ' s chest one of these days if BuAer will build a cockpit into which he can fold his six-foot frame. Since he was born into a Navy family, is was only natural that he would wind up at the Aca- demy after a year at Villanova in V-12. While in college he majored in M.E., but, in spite of the rigorous aca- demics, found time to play a creditable game of basket- ball. Here at Navy, he has been kept busy playing batt lacrosse and company football, basketball, and golf. There was a pretty girl in D.C. who had him completely in her clutches, so his weekends were far from dull. An easy man to find (no O.D. ever saw the top of his hat-cover) he was always ready to give a helping hand to classmate, shipmate, or damsel in distress. I A T T A L I O N Jahn y. CiMtnpanilc MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN John arrived from the land of milk, cheese, and beer fresh from two years at the U. of Wisconsin, where he had decided to trade a T-square for a sextant and come to " Canoe U. " His mind was a hotbed of ingenuity, mechanical and otherwise, and this, plus an excellent sense of humor, resulted in infernal mechanisms and long-to-be-remembered incidents, such as the case of " the harnessed mouse. " He put forth his major athletic efforts in the field of intramural sports, the list running from pistol to soccer, and was also active in executive sports, walk-running and rowing cutters with the rest of us. In regard to femmes, he was known as the slowest man on the flying squadron. He always, however, man- aged to slip into the Rotunda before the sword fell. 153 I 4 T T 4 L I O N • •- jK ' .i ROANOKE, VIRGINIA Although born and raised in Virginia, Rick attended New York University before entering the Academy. His interests were as varied as his background, and in- cluded classical music, golf, tennis, women, the sports page, Thomas Hardy, writing, the LOG, Greenwich Vil- lage, politics, and the New York Yankees. His main academic interest lay in the arts, although he did well in all. He was always ready for a bull session after dinner, and more often than not, a lively discussion of the forbidden subjects of the wardroom took place then. Proof of his popularity was that his room focussed men of all classes, each with his own nickname for Rick. To the man who could smile even at Monday breakfast, we say " It ' s been a pleasure, Rick. " CHARLESTOWN, SOUTH CAROLINA To keep his affairs from being cluttered up entirely by Navy pursuits, Charlie regularly popped up with a new scheme to be developed when Naval matters were less pressing. Among his agrarian proposals were his con- templated farm at Flat Rock— more commonly known as " Level Pebble, " and his spread out in Arizona— " Howdy, pahdnuh " was long the brand of our charming Charles. The latest of a long series was a proposed study of the potentialities of the stock market. Probably the most typical of Charlie ' s speculations for the future was " Plan Able " for retirement, " twenty yeahs, of course— nevah could stand thirty yeahs. " Plan Abie ' s setting included a dignified captain sitting on his veranda, sipping cool mint juleps ' neath the shade of fragrant magnolias. U)adc £. Clarhc SIOUX FALLS, SOUTH DAKOTA Wade grew up in the midst of Dakota ' s plains, attending Shattuck School, where he lettered in track. After a year at Augustona College in Sioux Falls, he joined the Navy for a short time before entering the Academy on a congressional appointment. During Plebe Year he participated in plebe football and track, later playing batt football, company touch football and softball. In- terested in all sports, he managed to keep up with most of them, although he had not decided whether they were worth all the effort. In the Academy, Wade claimed to have the best woman in the world as his OAO. Just a civilian at heart, he will let time determine his future. 154 I ' : WYNNEWOOD, PENNSYLVANIA In e ntering the Naval Academy, Al was following the footsteps of his father and grandfather. His conscientious and sincere interest in the Navy was buoyed up by a lifelong familiarity with this organization. On many eve- nings, he attended meetings of the Russian Foreign Lan- guage Club. In this club he found an added store of knowledge from their studies in Russian geography, economics, and authors. He also found opportunity to see the differences between their political system and ours. A capable athlete, he went out for battalion foot- ball, gym, touch football, and soccer. No matter what service branch he enters, his enthusiasm, cordial nature, and straight forward manner will make him a valuable officer. The family tradition will not suffer— perhaps some day Al will send his boy to Bancroft. FAR ROCKAWAY, NEW YORK After high school. Ping managed to work in a year and a half at City College of New York before the Navy beckoned. His ears still ringing with the peculiar sound that gave him his nickname, Sonarman 2 c Bill " Ping " Collins entered the Academy via a fleet appointment and NAPS. Bill bolstered the company ' s sports standing with his activity on the soccer, Softball, football, and cross-country teams. Though no OAO claimed him as her own, he admitted that he was not altogether averse to such a possibility. A knowledge of electricity gleaned while he was an electron jockey gave him a worthwhile edge over those of us who wandered lost in the wilder- ness of juice. Definitely planning on a service career. Ping slated just " the Navy " as his objective. A aheri W. Conkiin WENATCHEE, WASHINGTON Here at Navy, Conk was about as far from home as he could get without getting his feet wet. After graduating from Wenatchee High School, Bob went to Washington State for a year, where he picked up some engineering and a TEKE pin. At Navy, Conk ' s interests centered about his two great loves: basketball and jive. The winter, and most other, months found him streaking about the courts in plebe and JV basketball. He was also more than just a lover of jive; he played it, appro- priately enough, on the drums, and we ' d often seen him helping out a combo during hop intermission. If Conk ever gives up that intention to " mount a 5 " 38 on a canoe and go deer hunting in the wilds of Montana, " it ' ll be a real pleasure to serve with the Wanatcheean again someday. • T I 4 T T A L I O N 155 T I A T T A L I O N CHEROKEE, IOWA Some called him carefree, others called him a serene and composed character; but, regardless of the descrip- tion Dob succeeded in leaving us all with the impres- sion that he would remain unruffled by any of the ordin- ary trials of John Q. Midn. In fact, it was often Steve who tossed off that petite quip, styled in the inimitable Dobbins manner, which produced the lightning chuckle. Most of his spare moments, and there were some, were spent absorbing the symphonic strains of the masters. We have all paused in passing by the " Dauber ' s " door to catch a phrase from the latest addition to his collec- tion of classics. Although he was a man of diversified interests, his first love was the open hunting ground of his native middlewest. In the future, Steve, " Good Hunting! " Wiitiawn . Dcnncii KITTERY, MAINE Unlike a famous namesake. Bill has never been heard to complain of no new fields to conquer. In sports he achieved no little success, winning his numerals in plebe track, and playing on a championship company soccer team. It was natural for this Down East salt to place sailing high in preference, also. Bill showed that he was definitely not low-brow by his insatiable appetite for good books and good music. A protagonist of the " As goes Maine, so goes the nation " school. Bill has done a pretty good promoting job for the Pine Tree State, not to mention Kittery. He has made a place for himself here with his wit and grin. That he will also carve a place on the Navy family tree is certain. As he goes forth to win his dolphins, we have but one comment— " Look out, Davy Jones! " AMSTERDAM, NEW YORK This happy face belongs to one half of a small opera- tional unit that was formed by a rather capricious coagu- lative process during 49 ' s allotted four years. " The Dix " wound up at Navy after attending schools in Canada and the U. S., bringing with him a marvelous " here to- day, " philosophy which stood him in good stead when the going got tough or when his varied love life got out of hand. Dix was never one to worry, particularly about the vagaries of the various powers, and as a re- sult weathered the usual tribulations and trials by error of midshipmen with a minimum of strain. He had plenty of time to satisfy his prodigious appetite for reading anything but an assignment, and managed to get in almost as much extra-curricular sack time as the other half of the unit, one Jesse James, under whose count- enance this short saga is concluded. (Continued under R. R. James.) ii 156 . U ittiam C. Dnby ATLANTA, GEORGIA Before the Navy, Bill warmed up at Tech High School and at the home of the Ramblin ' Wrecks, where, as a chemical engineering major, he had been Vice President of Lambda Simga Chi and a member of the Inter- fraternity Council for three terms. Then, after ten months OS an AOM striker, he received a congressional ap- pointment and entered the Academy. Here he could be found almost any afternoon lashing his way through opponents in the fencing loft. His skill with the stilettos became so great that his B-robe boasted both numerals and an N . Always searching for the girl, he hoped that he might find her before that glorious day, and in the meantime, joined those of us who were watching and waiting. HODGENVILLE, KENTUCKY Quiet and unpresuming, almost to the point of seeming shy. Bill was a gentleman of the old Kentucky school. An English major at Western Kentucky, he detoured through the Navy before the Academy claimed him. With academics among his lesser worries, he won numerals in plebe and company sports. An avid interest in engineering made him a charter member of the Aca- demy chapter of the A.S.M.E. Even the rigors of the system have not been able to make him lose his temper or raise his normally even tone. Although his home state is better known for its horsemen than its sailors. Bill has taken to sea life well. The men who serve under and with him will be lucky in having him with them. WALLINGFORD, PENNSYLVANIA This versatile Pennsylvanian toyed with almost every- thing from duck hunting to model airplanes. That he was an overwhelming success in most of these under- takings is evident when we examine his record. First, Bart has been particularly adaptable to athletics. His fame as a wrestler spread far and wide, even to the point where he was receiving a generous bit of fan mail. He filled in the fall months playing football for the famous Navy 150 football team. Others will remember this friendly gentleman from the Main Line as a shrewed French scholar who spouted that language with con- siderable proficiency. Others yet will remember him as the man with the sax, and the skill and ability he showed with the alto sax was great. Bart, wing-mad, stick- happy lad that he is, wants to enter Naval Aviation. I A T T A L I O N 157 I 4 T T 4 L I O N FORT WORTH, TEXAS Mix a large portion of Texas with a dash of Brooklyn and don ' t be surprised at the results. Bill doesn ' t give out with the " bold, " for he left Yankeeland at a very tender age. A year of V-12 at Texas Wesleyan College and two years at Rice Institute were spent majoring in chemical engineering. " Touche! " seemed to be one of Bill ' s passwords to success at Navy Tech. In the after- noons he usually could be found in the fencing loft. Bill was an embryo " Musketeeh, " being a star performer on the varsity fencing team. Academics was another in the long line of easy battles for him. One of his extra- curricular activities was the Russian Club, where he learned to change that Texas drawl into a Slavic growl. As for dragging. Bill ' s motto remained, " variety is the spice of life. " ' Valeria (HI. ' JitMwani MONSESSEN, PENNSYLVANIA Valerio, Bill to his friends, could be recognized by the round face which always carried a big smile— enlarging as the going got tougher. He left Carnegie Tech after five months to enter the Army for two years as an Air Corps radioman. A congressional appointment and the Navy ' s preparatory school made him change services. While here. Bill was active in batt lacrosse and company soccer, but the sub squad instructor was the coach that really got to know him. The name Duronio was long prominent on the Reception Committee, as he enjoyed the informal weekend life without formations. Upon graduation he will make the line Navy a career and get married, claiming as his own the most wonderful OAO in the world. SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA After four years of Jerry ' s sarcasm, we can laugh in the face of a broadside. All of us have felt the " razor ' s edge " at some time or other, but yet we liked it. Jerry was the ideal man for the Naval Academy, for forma- tions, p-works, D.O. ' s, females, everything that made tranquillity impossible here never phased him— the only thing more pronounced than his sense of humor was the unbelievable nonchalance with which he accepted the system. Although he came a long way to Crabtown, Jerry ' s naval interest developed right at home, where he used to watch the Navy ships from his front porch. In graduating, he is just following a family tradition, as his brother was in 48-A. We will expect great things from Jerry ' s men, for, when faced with the alternative of Dyer sarcasm, they will have no choice but to excel. V 158 (in. tV. egerian, HI KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE Staggering steadily seaward from the still studded hills of Western Knoxville, Montraville Walker Egerton III, thanks to his training as an Eagle Scout, had little diflPiculty in blazing a trail to the hallowed hills of Ban- croft. In his years at Navy, Mont early became a mem- ber of that set commonly referred to as " sack hounds, " easily completing his " one thousand study hours in bed " test before the end of Plebe Year. As to women, Mont again proved himself a true scout by constantly seeking territories to explore, new fields to conquer. Naturally his year and a half at the University of Tennessee en- larged somewhat on his early feminity training, but his later blind dates were the items of basic training which really counted. CHEVY CHASE, MARYLAND Both a Navy junior and an inhabitant of Maryland, Jo-Jo planned from the beginning for a Naval career, attending Gonzaga High School in Washington, and Columbia Preparatory School in preparation. A presi- dential appointment qualified him via the regular en- trance examinations. Here Ek was well known for his athletic abilities on the soccer field. Starting in Plebe Summer, he progressed from plebe to J.V. team in Youngster Year, and to the varsity team in Second Class Year. His interest in soccer, however, never eliminated his like for other sports, including dragging. Although he is hoping for a future in the Marine Corps, subs or aviation take a close second in his choice of a definitely Naval career. NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA Many suspected that Harry ' s background was responsi- ble for his savoir-faire of good living, for there were few who appreciated more the fine points of food and drink. As evidence of his popularity, often on cruise his mail nearly equalled the total of the rest, but it was as a conversationalist that he shone. The time might have been day or night the place might have been Baltimore, Colon, or Copenhagen; the company might have been mixed or stag; one thing was sure— in the center of a little circle we could find F renchy discussing anything from politics to music to women with an inter- ested group of listeners. Many thought he should have been patented. Convivial, generous, considerate, droll— these four characteristics as embodied in Frenchy made a very satisfying blend. T I A T T A L I O N 159 T I A T T A L I O N LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA Before launching his professional career, Jack attended Pasadena Junior College, where he engaged in tennis and public speaking, and spent a year and a half in the Navy. In the line of sports, his interests lay mainly with tennis. His extra-curricular activities were extensive: Glee Club, Trident Society, Musical Club Show, the Quarterdeck Society, and an honored position on our Class Ring Committee. He offered stiff competition in oratorical contests, and was a member of the Debating Team, becoming president of the Intercollegiate Forensic Society First Class Year. To overcome the distance ob- stacle he brought his bride-to-be East, for marriage and the Fleet were what he looked forward to most. CONCORDIA, KANSAS If Bo ' s character had been as crooked as his nose, his picture would have to have been printed on a perfor- ated page, but we all could vouch for this offshot of a Kansas wheat crop. The only man at the Academy to advocate compulsory P.T., Ats soon found himself a charter member of " Leroy ' s Gym, " while working with company cross country and steeplechase, all of which served him in good stead with his occasional blind drags. Any list of his traits would be incomplete, for his friendliness, moral stability, and Blue and Golditis were only a few of those so admirably exhibited. At times it seemed as if his ambition wavered from flag rank to prune shooter in the local grocery store, but his interest in China gave the nod to a Naval career. CHEVY CHASE, MARYLAND Bill went to Severn Prep to complete his high school education, and by junior year he had decided that Naval Tech was to be his alma mater. After graduation, he enlisted in the Navy and began training as a Combat Air Crewman in Norman, Oklahoma. His congressional appointment to the Academy qualified him to enter the Naval Academy Preparatory School, and from there he entered the Academy. At Navy Bill came to be best recognized for his eager participation in plebe and J.V. lacrosse, batt football, and his ability to make amazing quantities of food disappear in the wardroom. Bill ' s hoped-for future holds a career in Naval aviation and a thin, gold band on the fmger of that certain GAG. 160 ofo demy to iwell Willi ' f wMcd iind Siantcy S. ine BRONX, NEW YORK The " Steamer " managed to get in and out of the Navy RT program in somewhat less than eight days- something of a record for short service. After NYU, Stan had fewer of those Academic blues than most, and could devote his spare time to the LOG, where he worked on circulation, pouring over the voluminous records he kept for study hour amusement. Politics was another big interest, and Second Class Year found S.S. on the Committee of the Wardroom Panel. These activities, combined with intramural sports and weekend duty with the Public Relations Committee, gave Stan little time for the fair ones, but once in a while he ' d abandon that visiting team to pilot a young lady through the in- tricacies of a Navy weekend. . Unnald Wisher, Jr. HUNTINGDON, PENNSYLVANIA " Fish " came to us after spending a year at Bullis Prepar- atory School. At USNA he followed strictly the pursuits in which he had had an interest back in high school: track, a football managerial job, business staff of the yearbook, etc. He won class numerals both for being manager of his plebe football team and for being on the plebe track teams, and distinguishing himself at his first tryout for a play by winning a part in the Masquerader ' s dramatic production. Other sideline inter- ests which Don pursued were photography and astron- omy. The latter may predominate his later life. Fish was fairly well settled as far as a girl went, although he was not planning marriage immediately on graduation. I A T T A L I O N tViiliatns m. alcw CINCINNATI, OHIO Wild Bill grew up in the Queen City and spent all but five years of his life there before entering the Academy. He received his schooling at Walnut Hills High and the University of Cincinnati. He studied pre-law for one year, giving it up to go to the Merchant Marine Academy, where he spent five months before coming to Naval Tech. His interests were many and varied, but journalism headed the list. He was editor of his high school paper and was given membership in the Quill and Scroll Soci- ety for his efforts. He also contributed to the TRIDENT during his Academy days. He liked all sports and was active in batt football, wrestling, and softbail. Women definitely attracted him but he never did find that one and only. 161 I A T T A L I O N • ' WittitMwn J. G e vey SCHENECTADY, NEW YORK A sparkling intellect and a highly refreshing personality have been but two of Bill ' s outstanding features. He had very definite opinions on such frequently debated subjects as party politics— insiders said that he wore a Willkie button on his B-robe— and never failed to liven a bull session. With his natural flair for the arts-he dabbled in psychology and philosophy in college-he breezed through Bull here. He was fond of drama, and rightly, for this budding Maurice Evans has shown much skill in playing top roles with the Masqueraders. As well as these achievements, he was an athletic and social paragon as well, playing mean tennis and golf, and operating successfully on the dance floor. An oflficer before Navy, Bill returns to oflficer ' s country with his success assured. PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA Eph, an ex-sailor, put liberty at the top of his preference list. A native of Philadelphia, he studied at Drexel In- stitute of Technology prior to entering the Navy and coming to the Naval Academy from the enlisted ranks on the basis of a competitive exam. During his stay here he served on the LOG and eventually became an im- portant member of the staff of that publication. He nurtured his interest in engineering as a member of the Mechanical Engineering Club. With regard to aca- demics, he starred without slashing and continually found satisfaction in confusing the profs. On the week- ends, however, the books were forgotten, for Eph be- lieved that the weekend was God ' s gift to Midshipmen. We knew that underneath he was Blue and Gold. M AMARILLO, TEXAS Red came to us after a stay at Marion Military Institute. Those twirling drumsticks which made up the rhythm section of the Brigade Drum and Bugle Corps had the Gobe tied on the other end. Batt wrestling, plebe lacrosse, J.V. lacrosse, J.V. soccer, and varsity cross- country were all at one time or another blessed with his attention. Alas for the Eastern seaboard Junes filles, Red was a taken man. His lovely OAO will be his bride immediately on graduation, or very soon thereafter. Red planned to shoot for the Marine Corps with the leather- neck artillery as a specific aim. Twenty years hence we may hear great things of him as coach of the all- Manchuria lacrosse squad (tenor drum lessons on the side). 162 WALTON, NEW YORK Mike ' s Irish eyes found something fo smile at even through four years of humdrum Academy existence, al- though whether or not they were smiling at one of his notorious jokes would be a matter for conjecture. Aca- demically he would have made 49-A with little effort. Athletically, he was the mainstay of many excellent company volleyball and soccer squads. His major rec- reational inclination was music, of which he liked both the classics and the passing ditties. His hometown has been perpetuated in our memories by frequent quota- tions from the pages of its weekly journal. Mike ' s loyalty and forbearance will make him steadfast friends wherever he may go, while his studiousness and sin- cerity will make him a much-to-be-desired asset to the Navy. m SCHROON LAKE, NEW YORK Three years, including a year and a half in V-12 at Cornell, where he was a Phi Delta Theta, a member of the council, and active in student publications, gave Jim a complex that bordered on the schizophrenic when we took on the " Big Red " in sports. He came to Navy with two ambitions— to star, and to drag. The first gave him little trouble, and the second made him an integral part of society from Crabtown to Goteborg, although he has at lost settled down to walk up the aisle with his OAO on graduation. His extra-curricular activities included the LOG and TRIDENT, the Russian Club, and most of the intramural sports, especially soccer, where the Haley ' s king-size feet were almost as valuable as that do or die spirit that will make him a man to watch in the Fleet. i. jA £. . § hitUps Paynes LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY Phil ' s pre-Navy Tech life was highlighted by one year in the Kappa Alpha Order at Transylvania College, and three years as an RT in the Navy Air Corps. Athletically, GAP was a strong defense man for the varsity lacrosse squad, filling out of season time on batt boxing and wrestling teams. As for dragging, Phil could usually be found somewhere in Crabtown sharing half the hazards of a Navy weekend. One of these escapades led to semi-national recognition, for Phil and his drag made headlines in the Baltimore Sun— a Typical Annapolis Weekend! Among the requitals of Phil ' s life here at the Severn Trade School was his brutal rendition of " Horses Don ' t Bet on People, " and, of course, there was " The Case of the Missing Bottle " at Virginia Beach. • T I A T T A L I O N 163 • T I A T T A L I O N § BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA Harvey, often called by his initials, migrated to us from Baton Rouge. At USNA he immediately found himself doing well scholastically, despite the fact that he spent a good part of Plebe Year in the hospital. Harv spent two years in the V-12 program at Tulane and as a civilian at Louisiana State University. Besides academics and the Mechanical Engineering and Photo Clubs, Har- vey was active in company 150 pound football, cross- country, volleyball, soccer, and swimming. Harvey ' s in- terest in a Naval career began early— even before he joined the Sea Scouts in his youth. It was undecided whether he would enter Naval Aviation or pursue more closely his engineering interests. OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA Helma undoubtedly spent his pre-Naval years keeping Nash and Oklahoma City, his present hometown, in a partial uproar. Whether or not the fact that Dale once belonged to a Pep Club had anything to do with it, he possessed more vitality than half the rest of his class combined. After graduation from high school. Dale spent one year as an enlisted man in the Navy, and received a fleet appointment to the Academy. Academics never really caused much worry on his part he found plenty of time for the varsity pistol and J.V. soccer teams, for Glee Club, and for dragging. Dale was still undecided about whether his future would be Naval or civilian, but whatever his decision, may it be the best one. BURLINGTON, IOWA After wending his way in and out of various academic institutions. Half-hitch took a look at the Navy. In due course, he gravitated to the Academy, where, at low tide, as he puts it, he has found his own level. What has he done? He has waged a relentless battle with academics— from the confines of his sack, or from behind his current extra-curricular book. He has planned grand strategy against the execs. He has painstakingly com- piled statistics on women in his very complete little black book. He has managed to make the steep climb to the wrestling loft on several occasions. He helped plan the business end of our class ring. He has been a burden to mailmen from Poughkeepsie to Hammarbyhojden. What more? 164 1 i: £ . ChiptwMtMn Vtiqqins NORFOLK, VIRGINIA Chip, born in New York City, called Jacksonville, Flor- ida, his hometown. Higgy graduated from Balles Military School in Jax and later attended Harvard for one term as a V-12 student. In both schools he excelled in swim- ming and of Balles was team captain. Chip was in the Navy for two years before he entered the Academy by fleet competition. Here, too, he took up swimming. He held one-third of a batt relay record and earned his class numerals and N . Besides swimming. Chip liked music and was partial to records, ond most of all went for the blues and southern folk music. He will moke Novial Aviation his career, but some day Ch ip would like to return to Balles and be an instructor there. Chawics (in. Wf vc SYRACUSE, NEW YORK Chuck was slated to become an electrical engineer after spending three years at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. However, in 1945 he left Phi Epsilon Phi and V-12 in favor of the Academy. Chuck gained star recognition on the varsity soccer team, and battalion lacrosse team. The Photo Club, and the Math Club were but some of Chuck ' s outside interests. Ever since he won a mathe- matics cup at Onondaga Valley Academy, Chuck de- cided that academics was doing what comes naturally. Dragging was a must on Chuck ' s endless list of things to do. Almost every weekend would find him hurrying towards the Toonerville Trolley and another drag. Writ- ing letters during study hour, plus a complex against the five mile limit numbered Chuck ' s few weaknesses at Navy. I A T T A I. I O N John . 9W€B PORTLAND, OREGON From the Northwest country came " J. P. " , an Oregonian who preferred the sun of southern California to the rain and ducks of Oregon. But, between rushing around on fishing and skiing trips, John developed into a fine cross country and track man, bringing home the bacon for Navy many times. Also interested very much in litera- ture and poetry, he wrote several stories for the LOG and quite a number for the TRIDENT. Having started his hobby early with the high school paper, and served here at the Academy as Poetry Editor of the TRIDENT, he will no doubt continue this interest upon graduation. His main interest, however, was his OAO— he was a constant dragger, with academics coming way down on his list, of course. 165 I A T T A L I O N • euqcne St. C. fic«, Jr. MUNSTER, INDIANA Bud came to us from Munster (he always claimed Chi- cago as a suburb). After graduation from high school he attended Purdue University and the University of Virginia in the V-12 program. His college experience gave him time for many extra-curricular activities, among them the Class Crest Committee, the Ring Dance Com- mittee, the 1 c Hop Committee, the Musical Clubs and the TRIDENT magazine. His sense of humor v as famous —who will ever forget his portrayal of the professor in OUT ON A LIMB? He boxed and swam, but his first love was writing, and most of his time was spent pound- ing out short stories, poems and plays. As far as the femmes go, he is probably still looking. Jawnes C. tMghcs Jr. CHATEAUGAY, NEW YORK During his " undergraduate " days, Jim found ample time to excel in such diverse fields as basketball and thermo- dynamics, not to mention several other activities. There were few who were as well read as this informed gentleman, who digested whole volumes with great speed, and was equally at home with John Milton and Milton CanifF. Having served as an aviation cadet prior to entering the Academy, air-minded Jim hoped to re- turn to that branch of the service after graduation. His experience with de-icers, however, was not limited to aeronautics, for he has mastered a deft and subtle ap- proach toward his numerous feminine friends. Blessed with a thoroughly likeable personality and a warm friendly nature, this smoothest of operators will be the life of the party in perpetuum. Jawnes S. tMWst CORONADO, CALIFORNIA " The Hairy Ape " was another of the numerous family of Navy Juniors. Born in North Carolina and having lived throughout the United States, he claimed Cali- fornia as his home, and was the only man alive who could out-talk the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce on the beauties of Sunland. Jim came directly to the Academy from high school, where he won the beard growing contest at the tender age of sixteen. He spent most of his time here cutting throat in Steam and rip- ping old radios apart just to see how they worked. Cruise found him happily tracing steam lines in the engine spaces. His two main extra-curricular activities were blondes and beer. He also liked brunettes and redheads, but was determined to remain a bachelor for years to come. w ub I 166 1 I 1 SOUTH PASADENA, CALIFORNIA John graduated from Loyola High School in Los Angeles, where he was captain of the swimming team; he also swam on the Pasadena Athletic Club swimming team. He attended Central Missouri State Teacher ' s College under the Navy V-12 program for awhile and later sonar school as a soundman for the Navy. John spent two years in the Fleet before entering the Academy on a congressional appointment, taking the regular exams. He liked sports and continued his swimming with a reg- ular job on the varsity swimming team from the very beginning of his Academy career. He participated in lacrosse Plebe Summer, but found that his swimming claimed most of his available time. John was interested in radio and spent a good bit of his leisure time read- ing on the subject. BOULDER, COLORADO (continued from J. D. Dickson) " The Jess " crawled out from under a Colorado Boulder, adjusted the vine leaves in his already thinning and retreating locks, and jumped oflF to see what this Navy stuff was all about. He brought with him a dry wit and a fair repetoire of sea stories, both of which helped to while away the long winter evenings— between bridge hands, that is. His varied interests ran from sailing to sleeping, with emphasis somewhat on the latter, to spending a good deal of time occupied with deep reflections on the caprices of the female mind. All in all, it has been a grand four years, and neither of us would have missed it for any- thing, because there were times when we almost did. TOLEDO, OHIO Jeff was born and raised in Toledo and earned an ARM 3 c rating during his three years in the Fleet. During Youngster Year he served as treasurer of the Foreign Language Clubs, as well as being a member of the varsity gym squad. The Mechanical Engineering and Photo Clubs took up the rest of his time. Quiet and reserved, JefF had more than his share of trouble with the Academic Department. Holding true to the old adage that still water runs deep, he neither boasted nor even spoke about his women and drags. Any big hop, however, usually found him going through the receiving line with some lucky lovely. Jeff, who was strictly a submarine man, was a staunch supporter of the Good Neighbor Policy, and regretted that the cruises never went to S.A. • T I A T T A L I O N 167 • T I A T T 4 L I O N t)allat n. fohnton CALDWELL, IDAHO Coming to the Academy via the College of Idaho, where he was a member of many social and honorary societies, D- plunged himself into " social " extra-curricular activi- ties Plebe Year. With one eye on the Academic Depart- ments, he divided his time between the Public Relations Committee, the Reception Committee, and the LOG. Although at one time he was a budding sabre star, a broken finger forced him to assume managerial duties with the fencing team. A Norwegian girl and Second Class Cruise made him a proponent of the Good Neigh- bor policy with Scandinavia. Far from being a social butterfly, however, Dallas thought seriously about life, and was an important contributor to any philosophical bull session. Since the Navy has no ships on the plains and hills of his home state, his ultimate goal is Pacific duty. therl £. Jcnhs. Jr. DIXON, ILLINOIS Dixon ' s contribution to the ' 49 ' ers was a man of whom both Dixon and ' 49 could be proud. Al first showed his good looks on the plebe football field. He followed this up with a year of JV ball, only to be won over the next season by the ham ' n ' eggers, although he had never seen a lacrosse stick before he came here. In the dark winter months, Al could usually be found getting a work- out on the handball court. Academically he managed to stand just high enough to avoid worry and just low enough so that he did not have to strain to stay there. Socially Al stood out. Dood, as " she " called him, man- aged to be one of the few to enter and leave Sea- side with the same dream girl on his mind. Yes, OAO really meant " One and Only " to him. C n. y thwusen, Jr. RIDGEWOOD, NEW JERSEY Our man with the cameras, a well known bystander at almost every activity, has had a third eye since high school, and developed his skill for two years as a pho- tographer ' s Mate 3 c before coming to Navy via NAPS. As the Photographic Editor of this book, he has been the man responsible for many of the fine shots in it. Aside from " shutterbugging, " Ted has occupied himself with dragging and building a model railroad car. Aca- demically, his only worry was coaching the profs on the orthographic peculiarities of his name— " that ' s John- sen with an £n. Sir! " Coupled with a keen sense of humor and a pleasing personality, Ted ' s perseverance and savoir-faire leave little doubt of his success. His aspirations center around the wings of Naval aviation, and especially on aerial photography. 168 1 II PLATTSMOUTH, NEBRASKA From the great wheat plains of the upper midwest, Jerry moved to Plottsmouth, and soon considered this his hometown. In Plottsmouth High he lettered in foot- ball, served on the student council, and edited the school paper. Upon graduation he went to the University of Nebraska on a scholarship, leaving college at the end of one term to join the Navy. With a congressional ap- pointment, he entered NAPS at Camp Perry, Virginia, and thus to the Academy. Jerry ' s sports during his career were batt and company football and batt lacrosse. He owned numerals in football, having been a star per- former on a batt championship squad. He claimed music and sports as hobbies, with a very definite interest in a particular one of the opposite sex. WANWATOSA, WISCONSIN Tom left the frontier town of Wanwatosa to prove the versatility of a landsman as a mariner. Two years at Michigan enabled him to breeze through the academics with an enviable ease, and kept the library staffs con- stantly occupied indexing and filling out cards, as he read book after book, shelf after shelf. Not to be out- done in other fields, Tom joined the soccer team Plebe Year, and was in no small way responsible for Navy ' s spectacular past four seasons. When soccer was out of season, all was bedlam until it was finally decided which company or batt sport could claim him. Scarcely a mail delivery was made when Tom was not a happy recipient, for the girls in his life were as legion as his pipes, and for more attractive. If his future lives up to its promise, it will be rich indeed. I A T T A L I O N KOKOMO, INDIANA " Big Tom " come to the Academy via Notre Dame and Iowa State, where he had studied mechanical engineer- ing. This background plus his natural inquisitiveness were perhaps the reasons for his not being content, as most were, merely to plug formulae, and for his inves- tigation of principles. While most were thumbing through manuals frantically, Tom would be calmly and coolly deriving to arrive at the solution. Far overshadowing his academic acumen, however, was his interest and par- ticipation in sports— all sports in general, football and lacrosse in particular. With little previous experience in football, and none in lacrosse, Tom achieved that meas- ure of success which comes only to the persevering. His composure and good humor will stand him in good stead through the trying days to come to success. 169 U I A T T 4 L I O N • DETROIT, MICHIGAN Bill came to us fresh from eighteen months in the Army Air Corps and a year spent at Wayne University in Detroit as a civilian. The Army gave him another six months of college work at Oklahoma A M, making certain that Kreamy ' s years in the academic tussle here v ould have a firm foundation. The ease with which he spoke Spanish was a source of amazement to all and should be a source of great opportunity in later life. Bill ' s fine voice assured him of a place in the Academy Choir. Aside from his singing he excelled in the fencing loft, going from the plebe team to win his letter plus that coveted star Youngster Year. Although no marriage plans loomed on the graduation horizon. Bill always had a reputation for dragging a good number of queens. ewnan § . §itcanwn HILLSBORO, KANSAS With considerable college background, and surpassing most of us in diligence, Verp took the academic hurdles in easy stride. Athletically he maintained this stride leading the company cross country and steeplechase teams through their battles of each year. As a plebe, Verp was a man with connections— a brother in the second class— but he made himself famous on his own with the aid of a holystone on Youngster Cruise. Many were the jokes tossed his way but none could match him with the infamous stone, which displayed his char- acteristic approach to a duty— really carrying a thing through. Regarding women, Verp has been a firm be- liever in the OAO, and plans to marry on graduation. After marriage, Naval Aviation seems like the thing, but surface duty in the line runs a close second. £d9VtMrd ' tn. 0io€hcr JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK Here Ed became associated with the LOG circulation staff, which position kept his extra-curricular time well occupied. Yet, he always seemed to find time for that dragging weekend. Come liberty time, one could usu- ally depend on finding him walking through Crabtown escorting another lovely belle. Among the company sports teams which have depended on Ed ' s reliable ability have been fieldball, volleyball, and cross coun- try, and his prowess with a lacrosse stick was soon real- ized in batt competition. Ed will always be remem- bered for having found the acme of feminine sophistica- tion, as was evidenced by the LOG Plebe Year. Ed always fought a tiring yearly battle without even Tecumseh ' s help, trying to read those blurry letters on the eye charts, but always defeated the medics and came out sat. i 170 ( 1 SCARSDALE, NEW YORK Bob originally came from Honolulu, Hawaii, where he attended Punahau High School and swam backstroke on the school ' s swimming team. He made his first trip to the United States in order to attend Rutherford ' s Pre- paratory School in Long Beach, California. Since his entrance into the Naval Academy, the Kuhnes hove moved to New York— a place Bob adopted with the customary zeal of any New Yorker. Definitely not a Red Mike, Bob with his OAO was a familiar sight at the weekend social functions within the dragging limits of Annapolis. He took everything in stride as it came, with an ample application of dry humor and an incon- ceivable ability to keep a straight face in all circum- stances. Easy going Bob was a warm friend to all of us. HOUSTON, TEXAS Paul was a Texan born and bred, even though he came to Navy after two years ' majoring in physics at Wheaton College, in Illinois. Having been a Math devotee from way back, he joined the Math Club early in Plebe Year. There was also a Mechanical Engineering Club meet- ing to take part in every week, but most of his free time went to a third interest— chess. Using a faculty for play- ing a cutthroat game, he became a mainstay of the Chess Club and the chess team, traveling all over the country looking for new subjects for that checkmate deal that worked so well with the rest of us. This genial Texan also gave of his talents to the gymnastics, steeple- chase, swimming, and sailing teams. Graduation found Paul ready to go up the aisle, for his OAO waited for this lucky man. PASSAIC, NEW JERSEY Three years of E.E. at Middlebury College and Wor- cester College had prepared Al for almost everything the Academic Departments could think up. Preferring the comforts of his sack and a good book to the rigors of dragging. Lefty wasn ' t seen with the women too often, but when he did give a girl a break, she was usually a queen. Bell bars and weights took precedence over his southpaw pitching after Plebe Year. With ex- perience garnered as advertising manager of his high school yearbook, he became an important cog in the LUCKY BAG ' S staff. A believer in fair and impartial opinions, he came to recognize the importance of the Naval system, and, with his respect and pride for the Navy and its institutions, he will be an excellent officer, and as popular in the Fleet as here. • T I A T T A L I O N 171 • T I A T T 4 L I O N OIL CITY, PENNSYLVANIA Calling Oil City " Home " , Jack began his Naval chron- ology shortly after graduating from Oil City High School. Franklin and Marshall College was the scene of the V-12 training he received before being commis- sioned in the Navy from Northv estern University Mid- shipman School. Immediately following began ten months as a naval officer stationed on board a costal minesweeper. The spring of 1945 found him giving up the gold stripe for membership in the brigade. Even though he put in plenty of hard work on academics, there was still time to row for both plebe and battalion crew. " Maggie ' s " skill in keeping the accounts of the Trident Society in good order while in the capacity of Treasurer should help him in his Supply Corps career. CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE Chattanooga ' s gift to Naval history, Pete came to the Academy after sixteen months as a bluejacket, entering on a reserve appointment from NAPS. Between high school and Navy he spent three semesters at the Uni- versity of Cincinnati, where he majored in chemistry. Pete held up his end in company sports by his participa- tion in cross-country, steeplechase, and soccer. He also, betimes, wielded a mean stick for the battalion lacrosse squad. He spent the first two years busily hunting for the girl, and (the lucky dog) he found her. Poor thing, she must take unto herself a name that has been the bane of all section leaders during his stay at the Academy. John . Hund RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA The thing that we remember best about Dit was his abiding interest in music, for all the current songs, whether smooth stuff or rhythm tunes got sympathetic treatment from him. Not confining his talents to music alone, Dit made plenty of time to spend with his num- erous drags. At lost report he was still in the explorer category, but indications showed him the home-loving type. In athletics, John was a sharp man with a pistol- probably a carry-over from his gun-toting days in west- ern South Dakota. The academic barrage, which made the strong pale, was met with John ' s usual nonchalance —some, witnessing this approach, shook their heads, but as more wasted away before the onslaught, became convinced that his head held more than song alone. % 172 WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA This future fly boy from Wheeling, West " By God " Vir- ginia, signed up in V-5 in June ' 43 and left for Memphis to serve at NAS as a Tarmock for four months. His career in the Air Corps was cut short when he trans- ferred to V-12 at Carson-Newman in Jefferson City, Tennessee. The next and last stop before coming to the Academy was the NROTC unit at the University of South Carolina. As for his extra-curricular activities, his prize ability, swimming, which he pursued for his high school and college days, was laid aside at Navy for company soccer, pushball, and golf. Dragging, though not extensive, was by no means minor. A good bit on the OAO side, he occasionally varied his drags to insure pleasant weekends at the hops and other social events. LEAD, SOUTH DAKOTA Bob was known to the folks at home as Robert, but his friends at the Academy have called him Bob. He re- ceived his secondary schooling at Lead High School and attended the University of South Dakota for two years, enjoying a life of leisure and fun. Because of his college work however, he was able to relax a little in our engineering courses. During high school days. Bob was on the track team, but here he tried his hand at boxing, batt football, and Softball. Good natured in all respects, he gave plebes little to fear when they met him. He liked a good social life— plenty of parties and girls. His ambition is the Naval Air Corps and a certain OAO who has been patiently waiting back in Dakota. William J. tUtfirr SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA Before coming to the Academy, Bill saw his share of academics at the Universities of California and North Carolina, and NAPS. This experience hod qualified him in the know-how, so his study periods were divided be- tween study and relaxation, relaxation predominating. Besides sacking-in for a pastime. Bill had a weakness for dragging blind, and few were the weekends that he was seen without a queen. In the field of sports, although not too husky, Bill ' s frame was deceptive, and he has been a valuable asset to many battalion and company sports squads, excelling especially in wafer polo. His easy-going nature was personified in his nick- name, " Spider. " Bill took a lot of ribbing, but as soon as California entered the conversation, this son of the Golden State saw to it that all joking ceased. I A T T A L I O N 173 I A T T A L I O N • BIG RAPIDS, MICHIGAN Tim broke into Naval Tech directly from a course in hot flying under the V-5 program. He reluctantly trod terra firma to class each day, but, given a choice, he would have been up in the " wild blue yonder, " buzzing the sea gulls over Chesapeake Bay. Before shedding his civilian status, Timothy studied electrical engineering for a year at the University of Michigan, and he ' ll rave on about his old alma mater at the slightest provoca- tion. A natural as an athlete, Tim achieved perfection in any sport in which he participated, football and fenc- ing being his favorites. Always a good man in a bull session, never too busy to listen to a buddy ' s troubles and sorrows, McCoy stood knee deep in self-confidence and determination as a typical fighting Irishman. UNION CITY, TENNESSEE Christened Robert Moorman, but better known to all hands as Mac, this asset to life at the Naval Academy came to us from West Tennessee, where he was a star athlete in high school. After a year of preparation spent in V-5 at Milligan College, he became a freshman in the Class of ' 49. Having early demonstrated a love of things mechanical, such as the hidden intricacies of motorcycles and the kinetic energy of pool balls, he succeeded in dodging the snares of the Academic De- partments. The friendly smile and ready wit of which he was the possessor will make this lover of hunting, poker, four-part mountain music, and the pursuit of women long remembered as the center of many a bull session. MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN Notre Dame ' s ambassador to Bancroft brought along a seabag of impartial literature on the football teams of the Fighting Irish. Rusk didn ' t limit his sports activity to the grandstand, though, because he led the com- pany team to brigade championship, and played num- ber one singles on the batt tennis team. A savoir, he spent much time helping classmates and giving poker lessons to those who dared. With two and a half years at Notre Dame behind him, Jerry was the library ' s best customer for fiction. Girls ranked next to sports in his life, and rare was the weekend of a big function that " Monster " was without a drag. Rusk will take more than an optimistic outlook on life to the fleet, for he has the ability and will to make all his endeavors meet with success. 174 i PALOUSE, WASHINGTON J.C. (or Jack, Mac, or Johnnie — he answers to them all) came to Crabtown straight from V-12 at the University of Southern Idaho. Just a little guy when he came here, the pride of Palouse gained fifty pounds during the first two years on the steady hours and good chow, making himself a hard-hitting fullback for the batt foot- ball team. Though he worked hard at sports. Jack was never a great athlete, but when he played a game, he played for keeps and to win. Johnnie expects to make the Navy a career, with line duty his preference. Long a strong supporter of the Navy, he has shown this by his avid interest in anything to do with the service. Quiet and efficient. Jack gets along very easily with his fellows and will doubtless make an excellent shipmate. WEBSTER GROVES, MARYLAND " Unmilitary conduct (talking in ranks) " became a fa- miliar phrase to Terrible Tom. A natural conversation- alist, he seemed always to be at odds with the Execu- tive Department, although four years of Navy discipline developed plenty of reserve in ranks. Tom ' s chief in- terest here was sailing. He worked hard at it, learned much, taught much, and distinguished himself by winning one of the coveted billets on the Navy entry to the 1946 Bermuda race. More than just a sailor, Tom proved himself in the field of writing by his excellent articles in the LOG, and, of course, there was always plenty of time for dragging. We will remember Tom for his sin- cere, loyal, and able efforts to improve the Brigade. But above this, we will remember him as one whose friendship we value highly. CHEROKEE, IOWA From the plains of the midwest came this cornfed lad who maintained that, next to his sack, Iowa was the best place to be. His year as a Sigma Chi at George Washington made Navy seem like Alcatraz, but he diverted himself with basketball and volleyball, where his height gave him an advantage. His policy with women seemed to be one of rotation, since he didn ' t want his already abundant fan mail to drive his stand- ing down, he dragged favorably and frequently. His interest in current political and international affairs caused him many a trip through the hall seeking the latest Time and Newsweek, but with all the facts at his fingertips, he livened up many a conversation. His great- est asset was an ability to get along with others, which should be a help in the future. • T I 4 T T A L I O N 175 T I A T T A L I O N BERKELY, MICHIGAN Having joined the fourth class only a few short days before the fourth class joined the Brigade, Roy hod hardly recovered from one storm when another befell him. In his own words, that first meal with the upper- class was " the end of the world. " He delayed quitting his home state long enough to gain an excellent back- ground at Wayne University and the University of Michigan, so academics proved a light burden. Although from his studious appearance and academic success, we assumed at first that here was a slash, soon the word was out— that Roy was the epitome of " gentlemen of leisure. " It was characteristic of Ray that he was one to practice what he preached, and he always strove to set the right example. This, combined with his innate ability, will assure him success in his career. NORTH PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND Ed came to Navy with a B.S. degree from Providence College and a year in Navy Radio Technician School as a background. After winning a close one from Plebe Steam, he ceased to let academic ogres bother him, and was left plenty of time to help less fortunate class- mates with Dago, Math, Skinny, or Juice, which were his " forty " subjects. When Saturdays rolled around, Ed preferred women and cameras. It was, therefore, nat- ural that we found Ed with drag and camera in hand, looking for new subjects each weekend. We found his address books and photo albums among the fullest when he packed his cruise box for the last time. The outstand- ing thing we will remember about Ed is the helpful way he had of lending out his developing tank or setting to rights a temperamental radio. John §1. mnicr ELIZABETHTOWN, KENTUCKY In a small town of eight thousand located deep in our blue grass state began the story of another forty-niner. Starting his wanderings from Elizabethtown, John be- gan his military career in the ASTP program, majoring in civil engineering at the Universities of Kentucky and Ohio State. The appointment to Navy ended his life with the Army and marked the beginning of the four year road at the Academy, with its good laughs and bitter trials. John ' s time at Navy was spent chiefly in wrestling, at which he proved to be a tough, agile op- ponent for anyone in the loft. He was regarded an artist in his relationships with the fair sex. In a few more years John will have lived a life full of valuable experiences and will probably be an authority on living happily. y 176 COLLINGSWOOD, NEW JERSEY MofF arrived at Navy Tech after two years as a cadet in the Naval Air Corps, having spent three semesters learning some mechanical engin eering at Penn State in the Navy ' s college program. Arriving too late to take part in Plebe Summer activities, he made up for lost time by making his numerals on the plebe gym team. Youngster Year saw Moff begin his varsity sojourn by winning his letter on the parallel bars. Wherever there were two pipes or pieces of wood resembling his be- loved bars, he could be found demonstrating his art. Due to his stay in the air corps, Moff definitely had his sights set on being a full fledged fly-boy. Wedding bells were not expected to ring immediately, but Moff was still keeping a good eye open for the girl. arry ' W. m rqan Jr. TOLEDO, OHIO After graduating from Phillips Exeter Academy, Harry entered the Army, where he saw service in the Philip- pines—namely Leyte. His love for the Army was so great that he finally ended here at Navy, where, in addition to being a varsity soccer man , he was a backstroke ex- pert on the varsity swimming team. His extra-curricular activities seemed to be divided between the Russian Club and the stock market. One of Harry ' s main inter- ests in life seemed to lie somewhere in his stomach, for he was strictly eager when chow call sounded. After two years ' trying to win the favor of a crab, Harry gradually moved up her list as each preceding class graduated his competition. He was her steady dragger at concerts and Musical Club Shows. CORONADO, CALIFORNIA If Andrew doesn ' t make Admiral, it will be no fault of his own. A beaver from way back, the blue and gold fairly flowed from this bit of California sunshine. Born in Crabtown, like a good Navy Jr., he later called the west coast his home. Entering the Academy after a year of prep school in San Diego, he settled down to raisin g the class Bull average and lamenting the passing of Dago with Youngster Year. Though not go- ing in for sports much, Andy managed to turn out for soccer and tennis with a regularity that would be a credit to Old Faithful. His interests included sleeping, reading with the passion of a Supply Corps candidate, and singing. A Red Mike from way back, Andy lived firmly in the belief that " women are a snare and a delusion. " I A T T A L I O N • 177 I A T T A L I O N L M UTICA, NEW YORK From her bounty the Empire State proudly sent forth the mighty ALP to become a pampered pet of Uncle Sam. The carefree preparation at Camp Perry had no model designed on the principles of the Exec Depart- ment, but Tony learned fast. His name made few ap- pearances on the left side of a Form 1. It was a rare evening for the taps inspector who was greeted by a wide-awake Tony, for his sock was his favorite mode of exercise, when he wasn ' t swimming, or checking on his financial condition. Although his first love was horses, he roamed the field keeping the local girls happy with his sea stories. Possessing a keen sense of humor characterized by a hearty lough, Tony could always be counted on for some cheer whenever a class- mate was CISed or bricked. U itiiatn J. nwris LAMESA, TEXAS When the strains of the " Eyes of Texas " echoed down the corridors, you could always find Bull braced up. A Texan by birth and education, he spent a year strug- gling with civil engineering at " The University. " After a year of service. Bill came to the Academy, where his earlier intellectual struggles at Texas, plus his own know-how and application, paid ofF. His athletic career for the Navy was varied, revolving upon soccer, lacrosse, and those fast winter games of intramural football. Soccer was his strong point as the junior varsity and varsity squads well knew. On those weekends when Friday ' s mail seemed to have brought that unforgivable letter. Bill made up for the lack of feminine companion- ship by heading out with the boys for a good steak dinner. DURAND, WISCONSIN Johnny came to Navy after a year of college in Wiscon- sin, with a fine record in high school football and one year of collegiate competition behind him. He played guard on the plebe team, following it by a short stay on the J.V. squad until ailing knees forced him to leave the team. His love of football was not to be denied, and for three years he was the mainstay of his batt team in that sport. Next to football, John ' s main in- terests were hunting and fishing. Once each year, after the Army game, he stepped out of character and spent a weekend to end all weekends. His love of a good time and of companionship made him on enjoyable classmate. His interest in flying seemed to point toward a future in the Naval Air Corps. 178 Donald C. § anlle BUFFALO, NEW YORK Friendliness, amiability, and self-confidence were among Don ' s natural attributes. He leaped the academic hurdles with the certainty that came of practice, for he was a conscientious student, succeeding despite the fact that he came to Navy without the fortification of previ- ous college training. Some of his Dago classmates will always admit that Don often played the part of a savoir in the last minute rush to complete the assign- ments due in class that day. A basketball natural, " D.C. " consistently supported his company teams the year round, and to these he gave his all. It will be well for the Fleet if the Navy holds the same attraction for him, for we ore confident that he will act accord- ingly and will always be a benefit to the Service. REDONDO BEACH, CALIFORNIA This native son of California came to the sunny Severn ' s shores determined to make good at the Naval School. Much to the dismay of his classmates, his slide rule al- ways seemed to grind out answers faster and with greater accuracy than did theirs, and his ability to ease through academics left him plenty of time to follow his first and great love, sailing. His sailing experience has been great and varied, and coupled with his ability, it made him a valued asset to the Navy entry in the 1946 Bermuda race. Although academics and sailing always managed to take up quite a lot of his time, Pete never failed for long to drag with the rest of us, and his queens were well known. As Pete goes to the fleet, he takes with him our best wishes for a happy and suc- cessful career. i pa m 1 w " B CENTRAL CITY, NEBRASKA Some may recall Mac ' s dignified position on the Hop Committee for three years, climaxed by a position on the Ring Dance Committee, but few will forget his role OS that of the culprit in the great Messhall Mystery of Youngster Year— The Case of Sidney ' s Sword. Second Class Cruise, by dint of his Scot ancestry, Mac made the trek to Kirkcudbright, Scotland, for the John Paul Jones Bicentennial Celebration. Dabbling in everything from Public Relations to social strategy, and blessed with a gracious, affable temperament flavored with sincerity, he could find his friends in every section of Bancroft. His winters were spent contributing to the championship record of Navy ' s pistol team— indeed, in the years to come, Mac will be remembered as a straight shooter, on or off the range. • T I A T T A L I O N 179 T I A T T 4 L I O N tVilliam £. §lead LA GRANGE, ILLINOIS In our world where seconds count, the " Rock, " as he was known from battalion football, found time his great battle. It was always a rush from reveille to taps, and sometimes after taps. Getting to know Bill, we soon learned that here was plenty of the real stuff. We found out that he expressed his ideas clearly and forci- bly, and pitied those who argued with this " facts and figures " man. Bill turned in as non-reg a Plebe Year as possible, and his ability at outcracking the first class wits kept him constantly on the move at release. Throughout, however, he demonstrated that sense of humor and amiability for which we will always remem- ber him. Bill is looking toward Naval Aviation— he will undoubtedly be a hot pilot, and few will know more about their planes than Bill. READING, PENNSYLVANIA Potty, hailing from the land of the well known Pennsyl- vania Dutch, was known throughout the brigade as " Superpot the Cyclone Kid. " A common occupational hazard of midshipmen was low moral and general dis- satisfaction with life at Naval Tech, but when Potty walked into the room, the evil spirits were driven out by his sparkling humor. A resident of Reading, the pretzel city, his room was the headquarters for all lovers of the twisted morsel. His major pastime was the broadcasting of numerous Naval athletic events as a member of the Public Relations Detail. Potty did not build a better mouse trap, but the better part of his company beat a path to his door for the Dago home- work. His future ambitions are directed toward either submarines or the Air Corps. NEW YORK, NEW YORK Ruby ' s three years of engineering at Alfred University and his time in the Navy taught him how to slide over the rough spots of the Academic and Executive Depart- ments with a minimum of friction. With studies usually getting t he last call on his time, he spent Plebe and Youngster Years on the sabre team, while the LOG and company sports shared the honors upper class years. Although he rarely wasted precious weekend time on dragging. Ruby ' s ability and potentialities as a ladies ' man came to the fore on cruise with considerable suc- cess. His attitude and ability have stamped him as a fine ofFicer and a good man. Although he ' d prefer a berth under the shadow of his native Washington Heights, he will do his job well anywhere and on any- thing. i tifei olvoi netlii 180 SIOUX FALLS, SOUTH DAKOTA Attending Washington High School in his hometown, Lee lettered in basketball, track, and football, holding upon graduation the scoring record for the state basketball tournament and a conference record in track. High school was followed by one year of V-5 at Northwestern Missouri State Teachers College, another basketball letter, and the nickname " Grigsberger. " Entering the Academy on a senatorial appointment, sports were Lee ' s interest, primarily baseball and basketball, N in the latter. Lee, being by nature easy going, had a lust for not hurrying and not straining. These two traits caused him to cross swords with the Executive Department on more than one occasion. The encounters, however, left him unscathed. BAY CITY, MICHIGAN Jim was an embryo electrical engineer in the Iowa State V-12 unit before he changed course to Navy. During his literary search, he did the unprecedented and be- came a temporary " St. Johnnie " during his free time, thus becoming prominent in after-dinner speaking. He put his talent to its best use in the Quarterdeck Society. The intricacies of Slavic languages appealed to Bruce, so he took a special course in Russian during his last two years here. Jim played company soccer; many a squad depended on him to bring home the bacon. Bruce dragged intermittently; such episodes fluctuated with his feeling towards the system at the time. His principle of variety in femmes led Jim to claim the distinction of meeting a weekend date at the B A only to find that there was a chaperone attached. wl KENNET SQUARE, PENNSYLVANIA The words " That name is Roo-jerry, sir! " form our earliest recollections of Arch from Plebe Summer. There have been many others, though; his four year war with the academics, his athletic prowess, and, most important, the four years of friendship we have enjoyed. His big battle here was academics, but he slugged it out and emerged victorious. Contrary to academics, athletics were strictly smooth sailing for Arch. Coming to Navy with a golden trail of awards for prowess behind him, he topped them all, first by winning three N ' s for soccer, and second, by being named to the Ail-Ameri- can team. Graduation must certainly have more sig- nificance for Arch than for many of us, for it meant that he was now free to bid goodby to bachelorhood. To both him and Lou we wish many a shipload of happiness. I A T T A L I O N • 181 I A T T A L I O N • fanh C. Sain CHICAGO, ILLINOIS The windy city was well represented at the Academy by our toll, suave, good-looking Frank. Although he applied himself diligently to the rigors of Navy, he never let academics interfere with his enjoyment of the finer things. The girls found his charm irresistible, and not being one to waste a weekend, he developed a long list of queens in his little black book. An active partici- pant in many sports, he expended most of his energy grunting and groaning in the wrestling loft. Frank gave up his chance to become a Navy flier to come to the Academy and looks forward to earning his wings after graduation. His fun-loving disposition and sharp wit have made him an entertaining companion for our four years here, and will make him a fine addition to the Fleet. tVitliatn n. §lutlcdqe CONWAY, SOUTH CAROLINA Bill was valedictorian of his class at Conway High and so had little trouble with the books. He was also a member of the National Honor Society, editor of the school paper, and he won his " C " in basketball. As a pre-med student for a year and a half at VMI, he was active on the campus and received the Jarman award for being the outstanding fourth classman. At the Academy he was very active in intramural sports, but, if asked, he would say that he was heart and soul with the radiator squad. Bill was a camera fan and enjoyed taking pictures of his friends. His collection of snaps will be a fine record of his four years by the Severn. Bill did pretty well socially; he hod been playing the field but hoped to make a certain Southern belle his OAO. m r vin Sa€afab HAVERHILL, MASSACHUSETTS From Massachusetts, Merwin came to Navy wearing a smile and using a slight New England accent. In high school. Sac, though the youngest in his class, made a scholastic record that was admired by all. He tried to enter Naval Aviation but was turned down because of his age. Instead he went to Rensselaer Polytechnic In- stitute for one term, during which time he received his appointment to the Academy. During Plebe Summer, he became disillusioned by the Navy, but the determina- tion to make a success of anything he does kept him here. He was still a top scholar, putting forth a minimum of effort for good grades. Though not the varsity athletic type. Sac still had enough fight to try out for plebe sports against the toughest of competition. 182 WASHINGTON, D. C. Navy Vol ' s record here was merely an extension of the outstanding one he had amassed before his arrival. Though a man of many interests, his forte was athletics. Outstanding in basketball, track, and swimming in high school, he had won All-California honors in football as well. Continuing his activities on the Navy football varsity, he also participated in swimming and tennis. Reveille here seldom affected him, and the sight of his one hundred eighty-five pound form staggering down the corridor early in the morning is one we can ' t forget. When not engaged in some form of athletics. Vol was usually off in a darkroom fiddling with an enlarger or dreaming about his future in the air where he intends to follow his Navy Dad ' s footsteps. Stand by, Navy, for another hot pilot! Cawl M. SchcniuMS, ' Jr. ALTADENA, CALIFORNIA Zeke was as covered with salt as an ice cream freezer, for, during the two years before he came to the Acad- emy, he saw sea duty in both the Atlantic and Pacific fleets as a Fireman 1 c (EM). Since his fleet days he has distinguished himself by an amazing capacity for hard work and an earnest desire for success. In plebe track, and innumerable company sports, he proved outstand- ing both in skill and enthusiasm. Zeke was one of the many Forty-Niners who gladly exchange one set of bells for another, wedding bells, upon graduation. A large measure of Zek ' s achievement at the Academy could be credited directly to his rare combination of good sense and good humor. Diligence and an excellent faculty for leadership will make him one of the Navy ' s most valued officers. UTICA, NEW YORK Anyone taking a close look at Tecumseh ' s proboscis and the nose of our boy will see why the latter was known as the " Chief. " And, although Tecumseh was painted up every year for the Army game, there ' s more Blue and Gold in " Chief " than Tecumseh will ever wear. In any bull session, in which the inevitable comparisons come up between Navy Tech and nice civilian colleges, it was always " Chief " who defended Navy ' s honor against all odds and all comers. He worked on his academics like he played bridge— few flashes of bril- liance, but a deep, steady show of perseverance. Al- though not considered much of an " operator " when it came to women, he still held his own with a quiet manner and six-foot stature of sex appeal. T I A T T A L I O N 183 • T I A T T A L I O N « i I iVitiiatn (ttt. ShaMihatMsc ROCKFORD, ILLINOIS Despite efforts to suppress it, Bill will always be " the Wilb " to the boys. In many ways, he has been slightly phenomenal. How relaxed could one get? To what ex- tent could one beat the system? Bill ' s successes over the system indicated real ability in more serious fields. As a yachtsman, he was among the first in the class to qualify for yawl command, was selected to crew the Vamorie in the Bermuda race of 1946, and won the Cove Point yawl race Second Class Year hands down. Bill ' s trophies are evidence of his achievements. The harsh blows he dealt academics cannot be over- looked, for they made his passage through these rough waters smooth sailing. Bill eagerly awaited gradua- tion, for he and his girl Suds, well known to us all, were as anxious to embark on married life as two people con be. BRONX, NEW YORK Philosopher, artist, critic of both jazz and the classics, Lou was a connoisseur of all things aesthetic. He passed the years before entering the Academy in CCNY and the Navy. His literary ability, which had earned him the editorship of his high school yearbook, was well known to all here through his cartoons and sketches in the LOG. During the winter, he abandoned his copies of Vaneiy, Downbeaf, and the New Yorker for the epee and the fencing loft. His winning personality made him the perfect blind date, a fact that he regretted many times. But with true Serrille fatalism, he regarded that, too, as part of the system. Not a believer in long range plans, Lou placed his future Naval career in the hands of Kismet, although a berth as close as possible to the Bronx River would be preferred. BALTIMORE, MARYLAND John Hopkins really lost a favorite son when Dick left the Phi Gamm house to join the " country club " set. He really took a mean strain on each physical to stretch through with his five foot six longitudinal axis, but that same axis spelled doom to those who would put the ball through a lacrosse goal when Dick was in the net. For four years the " Stopper " proved that he was one of the best goalies in the business. With no academic worries, he found his only trouble in life was his constant inability to keep one girl from finding out when he was dragging her best friend. In the future we will remember that wine, women, song, and food put an identifying mark on Dick— wine and women to start the evening off, song to give atmosphere and food to end it well. i 4 184 OPELOUSAS, LOUISIANA Vaudeville missed one of its best chances to moke a comeback when it permitted Singy to enter Admiral Holloway ' s School for Midshipmen. Although his ability with a clarinet has never been doubted since the time he first appeared with the NA-10, even broadway pro- ducers must have admitted that his proficiency with a slide rule was even more remarkable. Few other men succeeded in getting first degree burns from the heat generated by their slipsticks during juice quizzes. But Bon-Bon never let his academics worry him— he didn ' t need to. Consequently, he always had time on week- ends to date Baltimore ' s fairest. His drag was invari- ably treated to some of the best imitations, juggling, gymnastics, and general devil-raising seen in twenty years. rcdcwi€ U . Smith PORTLAND, OREGON Although he swore that he was from South Weymouth, Mass. and from Portland, Oregon, Fritz ' s habits and tastes were those of a blue-blooded New Englander. After Deerfield Academy, Tufts College and one year in V-12, he commenced his Plebe Summer. He ran cross-country and track like his brother, Jim, and added wrestling for good measure. Such duties as Business Manager of the TRIDENT, sports staff of the LOG, Russian Club, and Boat Club memberships partially filled his days. Why partially? Well, during Second Class Year, Fritz took a correspondence course in Business Administration. On weekends, he could be found sail- ing in the yawl races with one of his many beautiful drags. I A T T A L I O N SPaal £. Smith WHEATON, ILLINOIS Before his four year stay at USNA Paul enlisted in the Navy V-5 program and took up pre-flight studies for a year at the University of Michigan. Here at Navy Tech Paul devoted his spare time to music, boxing, and rifle fire. He tooted the oboe for the band and the orchestra, boxed in company and batt competition, and also won class numerals as a member of the rifle team. Pre- dominately Smitty was serious and diligent, quietly striv- ing to obtain his goal. He was no slacker, for he had a hometown OAO to whom he was contemplating mar- riage soon after graduation. When Smitty went on his summer leave he usually wandered north across the Canadian border to a tract of land he owned where he engaged in the sport of hunting. 185 I A T T A L I O N AKRON, NEW YORK About a girl he met on youngster leave Stope said, " That ' s the one I ' m going to marry. " We had all heard stories like that before, but in spite of our joshing he settled down to the writing and waiting routine that characterized a man who had found what he wanted. All we could get out of him from that day forth was praise for the Irish and " My Sweet Patty O ' Brien. " He found writing letters to his girl and not dragging more profitable than application to his studies, but while he never stood high in his class he always managed to get by -a fact indicative of his ability to concentrate and put away the knowledge when the chips were down. He was a big, red-haired Irishman whose affable manner will be hard to forget. SAINT LOUIS, MISSOURI The home of the " blues " certainly reared a paradoxical son, for Speck was consistently on hand to buoy up our oscillating spirits for the long years. Two years at Washington University as a chemistry major, followed by more than a year ' s service in the Infantry gave him a background of experience beneficial in any walk of life. Although interested in sports in general, his great weakness was baseball, for, as well as being a fount of information on the subject, he was a regular on the Academy nine as a slugging outfielder for three years. In the fall, batt football benefitted by his efforts at one of the terminal posts. Dragging moderately and living likewise. Speck will have little trouble adapting him- self in the fleet. ' W ii% S. Spi ltnann HUMBOLDT, SOUTH DAKOTA Though raised as close to the soil as any farmer can get, the " Sea Dog " early set out for the salt water, and, with twenty-one months of service in Atlantic, Medi- terranean, and Arctic waters, plus his " Bluenose certifi- cate, " has earned his nickname. He was so intrigued then with the life afloat that he gave up thoughts of tilling the soil, and set his sights on the Chapel Dome instead. Here, for four long years, he has succeeded academically and athletically with his conscientious ap- plication, and socially with his friendly enthusiasm and truly amazing faculty for extravagant narration. Four years and many sea stories later, the Sea Dog is now ready to return to his element again. With him go our best wishes for a happy and successful career. i 186 r PEORIA, ILLINOIS From Bradley College in Peoria, Stu came to the Naval Academy. A thorough student, he surmounted the academic obstacles and achieved a good all around average. In his effort to learn Russian, he joined the Russian Club, working to learn hov to " talk to the Soviets. " With his backlog of high school track, he naturally found a place in the running competition of the cross-country, and steeplechase squads. On cruise he alternated between hitting the sack and visiting places of interest in port. Not uncertain of himself, and containing an inert liking for the Naval service, Stu will probably be under Uncle Sam ' s supervision and direc- tion for a good many years. His easy, unassuming manner and quiet resolve should aid him considerably in his work. J»hn . Suttiwan ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA Sully will always be remembered for his outstanding ability to make and keep friends, for his circle of friends was only limited to those who knew him. He was one who never failed to rise above the situation and shatter a dark storm cloud with a shaft of Irish humor. The charm of sack and book proved almost irresistible to John, and it took considerable work to arouse him, al- though, once broken out, he proved a first-class athlete, distinguishing himself in batt and company football, baseball, and track. His greatest fame came when, Lucky Strikes permitting, he ran the four-forty for the mighty third. For the future, we are confident of John ' s success, and can only envy those who will be with him in future years to hear him sing again " I ' ll Take You Home Again, Kathleen. " TOLEDO, OHIO The man with the pleasant smile and pleasing person- ality was our Dick. After high school, where he had been president of his class and his fraternity, as well as business manager of the yearbook, he spent three terms at college in the Navy before coming to the Academy. Besides doing well in academics, Dick has been an all-around man here— an excellent boxer and skiier. Advertising Manager of the LUCKY BAG, and an interested Spanish student. After his OAO, his chief love in life was sailing, and any free time he had in- evitably found him out in one of the yawls, rain or shine. Dick is definitely a career man, and so far it ' s a toss up as to whether the Marine Corps or Navy Avia- tion will be the lucky branch to get his attention. • T I A T T A L I O N 187 T • T I A T T 4 L I O N gath 2). t vnable LAS VERGAS, NEVADA " Black Jack " has spliced the old Navy line to the old western line with the eye of a master mariner. From the shadow of the Great Divide he followed the Navy trail until it narrowed to a footpath headed for the Academy— so it was that our young Lochinvar rode out of the West to join the ranks of ' 49. Ever since Black Jack hitched his chuck wagon to the midshipmen ' s mess, he has showed versatility of achievement, and even difficulties with academics didn ' t keep him from ex- celling in athletics. His seemingly endless repetoire of tall stories never went unappreciated, and with his even- tempered congeniality, won him a host of friends. From the fleet, he hopes to go to the pigboats; they will have gained as excellent an officer as the West has lost a wrangler. ATLANTA, GEORGIA When Tom came up north to go to school on the Severn, he brought with him a game of tennis that had been developing since high school, a year ' s experience at Georgia Tech in textile engineering, a Phi Delta Theta pin from the some place, and a quiet and easy-going approach. An athlete of no mean repute, he played varsity tennis, varsity squash, ran cross country for the company, and was a star on the company gym team. As well as all this, he was an enthusiastic sailor, as was evidenced by the many hours he spent on the yawls. Naturally, he dragged only southern belles, preferably those who were from Atlanta and were in school in Washington. Tom looks forward to a career in Naval Aviation, where he will certa inly do well. Ap " Kenneth € . UMwncr GRIFFIN, GEORGIA Throughout Plebe Year, Ken ran the usual gauntlet of questions, stunts, and " coming around, " and complied with all the upper class demands save one— that he sing " Marching Through Georgia. " Though reared in the lazy southern climate, he showed no slowness in his running; Plebe Year he worked with the company cross- country and steeplechase squads, and by the year ' s end he had graduated to the varsity track and cross-country squads with the nickname " Fleetwings. " Aside from the usual midshipman interests of bull sessions, letters, and dragging. Ken spent many free moments assimilating the culture and ways of both the United States and many foreign countries. This interest, coupled with his indi- vidualism and willingness to serve, will make him a worthy addition to the Fleet. 188 Philip iad4?ssa BROOKLYN, NEW YORK A proud member of the Academy ' s vast delegation from Brooklyn, Philip entered the Naval Service with an amazing knowledge of the Slavic languages. Not con- tent with sack duty, Phil excelled each season in batt football, swimming, and lacrosse, spending the time left in the Russian and Photo Clubs. No day was complete without some manifestation of his capricious wit, and, although the system received its share of his barbs, the Navy was Phil ' s most serious subject. A regulation man, he usually was harder on himself than on others. Two years of the Navy, part of the time at the New London Sub School, gave Phil a taste of undersea life that he enjoyed. The Navy ' s going to have a good man for the next forty years, and the sooner it gives Phil his dolphins, the better off it ' s going to be. MOUNTAIN LAKE, MINNESOTA In his secondary school career. Spud won letters in foot- ball, basketball, and track. This promising past, coupled with on impressive stature and an enviable ability to learn quickly, indicated a bright future on the Navy playing fields. Fulfilling this future. Spud found posi- tions with plebe football, basketball, and lacrosse— a shoulder injury stopped the football, but, by devoting himself to lacrosse. Spud made himself one of the key men on the team. As a Radio Technician in the Fleet, before Navy, he discovered a field in which his interest was to be endless, and as a member, and. First Class Year, president, of the Radio Club, he extended both his interest and his skill. His future success cannot be but assured. I A T T A L I O N • £. W. r. tDaller, U MANCHESTER, MASSACHUSETTS Tony arrived at Navy with as proud a heritage of fight- in ' forbears as his name was long. With a couple of Marine generals and an Admiral for grandfather, uncle, and father, respectively, Tony made it clear that, al- though he might not star in every course, he was going to do some fightin ' on his own— with the books. While a youngster, he joined the ranks of the championship 150-pound football team, and, characteristically, wound up with an N at the close of each remaining season. In distinct contrast to the " cauld wintry blasts " that play along his native state ' s shores, Tony could usually be found cheerfully making it hot for the gang with some new merriment. In the years to some, we shall certainly look forward with pleasant anticipation to catch once again the twinkle of this gentleman ' s eye. 189 I A T T A 1 I O N • 0»hewi £. White MARSHALL, MINNESOTA Hailing from the wilds of one of Minnesota ' s innermost dairy farms. Bob stood firmly upon his record of having amassed more motherly instincts than any other man to ever enter Navy Tech. Endowed with a naturally care- free disposition, it required almost two years of con- stant tutoring to teach him the rudiments of a good healthy gripe, and even yet his naturally effervescent nature insisted upon placing rainbows in the midst of the blackest skies. A member of the Academy choir, as well as the Glee Club, much of his extra time was spent in rehearsal, the remainder being conscientiously de- voted to the radiator squad. Although he was never one to wear out a perfectly good book, his number still managed to retain a remarkable lack of magnitude. John ft. iVatnstenf BUFFALO, NEW YORK Whether the J.A ' s high academic standing was due to the fact that he had had most of the courses in the NROTC at the Universities of Notre Dame and Rochester, or whether it was by reason of natural ability with the slip-stick was a question never actually answered. Never a one-girl man. Jack was always willing to meet a new one— wherever he went he usually came back with a new address, and, after two foreign cruises, he prob- ably wrote to more girls in more countries than any other man. The " Red Eye " gained his nickname from his profuse use of that condiment— a habit he picked up aboard the USS North Carolina of Youngster Cruise. Jock was always good solid material for the company and battalion sports squads, but he liked chess the best. James . U)ay, Jw. INDIANA, PENNSYLVANIA At high school, Jim was class president, member of the student council, the school paper and yearbook staffs, and was awarded a State Senatorial Scholarship in Composition, under which he studied in the school of liberal arts at the University of Pittsburgh for a year and was elected into Phi Eta Sigma, the freshman hon- orary fraternity. Here, on the plebe dragging weekend, his trusty wife fixed him up with a blind drag— after that unfortunate experience, he remained a confirmed Red Mike until the spring of Second Class year. His inter- ests included music, but his real delight was Spanish and he went far in that language. He played on the company cross country and soccer teams, and won his numerals in plebe fencing, but the best remembered days were spent splashing with the sub squad. 190 il HIGHLAND PARK, MICHIGAN One year in the Fleet and service at Morgan Park Mili- tary Academy gave Whit a good background for life here at Navy. Stubbornly realistic in every way, he was a good man to have on your side in any argument. Whit was a perfectionist at heart, and thoroughness in every- thing he did was his best asset. During his first two years here, he managed to attend most of the hops and his taste in women was good, although varied. Towards the end of Youngster Year, however, his Woman De- partment suddenly narrowed down to " The One. " By Second Class Year he was busy collecting silverware patterns. Swimming and water polo took up some of Whit ' s spare time, but varsity pistol proved to be his forte— as four N ' s could testify. MIAMI, FLORIDA Pete came to us directly from high school, where he had won, in addition to seven athletic letters and numerous awards, the honor of being the outstanding graduate in his class. He brought with him his nickname, and as " Pistol Pete, " he has been the star halfback for the football team for four years, as well as being an out- standing track runner. In high school he met his OAO, to- gether with whom he has been looking forward for three years to graduation and marriage. Among his spare- time interests, golf and reading headed the list. As our class president, he has been an able and capable leader who has represented us well. Only one of the many honors he has received was that of being included in " Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities " in his Second Class Year. PORTSMOUTH, OHIO From a destroyer on Atlantic duty. Smiley went to NAPS at Bainbridge to study for the competitive fleet examina- tions. Plebe Year was tough for the independent Ohioan, whose backlog of Naval experience did not include the rigors of such a life; but through it all his ready smile and cheery outlook predominated, and the appropriate nickname of " Smiley " followed. In com- pany and battalion sports. Smiley earned a place for himself on the football, Softball, fieldball, and pushball teams. Definitely the explorer type, he usually escorted a different girl each month. In the fleet his decided interest in our country ' s welfare, his previous Naval ser- vice, and his Naval Academy education should make him a good officer, capable of fulfilling any assignment.

He ' s not the ordinary variety of Golden-Stater, either, for he admits that there is another state worth living in— Iowa, where he was born. Life was pretty dull at Navy that first year, even though he managed to while away the time with lacrosse, batt boxing, and plebe gym. The main trouble was that D.C. couldn ' t drag, and that goes hard with one who ' s always been a dragging man. Duff found plenty of use for that winning personality on the Public Relations Committee and in the everyday life of Bancroft. Tact, unselfishness, and a desire to help out were the traits that made him a welcome addition to any group. gMwhtcy C U)»»d, Jr. BIG SPRING, TEXAS In high school Barkley was active in football, tennis, the Spanish Club, the National Honor Society, and as Presi- dent of the Student Council. After high school, " Pooley, " as he was nicknamed, left Texas to attend New Mexico for nine months under the Army Specialized Training Reserve Program. Barkley entered the Academy by cer- tificate on a congressional appointment. While at the Academy he pursued his love of football, and did well playing plebe, varsity and company football. Pooley was a peaceful man, but he wanted it understood that he had become a fully naturalized Texan. As for social life he was a strong believer in a full schedule and claimed to just play the field in the case of women. His other interests were fishing, football and other sports, and Texas. U)iilnawn £. tVynnc PASSAIC, NEW JERSEY When the cries " Beat Army " had died down, you could always find a red faced. Irishman present. Bill found his team and became a part of it in every way, when he entered the Academy. Always active in sports, whether playing jayvee football, soccer, or baseball, and back- ing the varsity with a fervour seldom seen. Bill was " in there " at all times. His accomplishments were not limited to the athletic field— he stood high in academics and never hesitated to give a laughing nod when the question to drag or not to drag arose. When the neces- sity for choosing a leader appeared, the name Wynne stood at the top. Always smiling, imparting his confi- dence and good naturedness to those about him. Bill needed little molding to emerge an asset to the Navy. 192 — ■«■ bangtail W. IJitung LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA Before Navy, Randy spent two years in the Pacific on a DD, getting a FC 2 C rate, and a fleet appointment to NA. Four months at NAPS compensated for his lack of high school diploma, which he had foregone to enter the Navy, and he passed the Fleet Exams with the highest average in the regular fleet quota. Plebe Year was tough for him after his enlisted status, but the best compensations were sports, so he started off with plebe soccer and fencing, continuing by playing with the varsities in these sports the last three years. His interest in diplomacy led him to join the Russian Club, where he worked on the study of U. S. -Soviet relations. Although Navy Fire control and the work of a Naval attache may constitute most of his career. Randy will be a welcome asset to any ship ' s complement. Charles Jnhn 3Cdi.€Mn PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA Easily adaptable to the Navy way of life, Zeke early demonstrated qualities of leadership. In boot camp, where his officers recommended him for a Fleet Reserve Appointment to the Academy by prepping in NAPS, he successfully competed for a place with the Brigade. An alert and conscientious student, he quickly adjusted him- self to Navy academics and earned not only high aver- ages, but also his classmates ' respect for his ability. During the sports seasons, he engaged in company athletics; and as for dragging, he did not miss many of the hops. Out in the Fleet Zeke will fulfill his function as a capable mariner and a good officer. Ashore, his cordial nature and active interest in Naval affairs will make him a desirable working companion.

His guiding hand and un- tiring efforts on behalf of the LOG were rewarded with the post of co-editor First Class Year. With Hugh, the adage " if you want a job done well, give it to a busy man " fitted like a glove. A true lover of white sails and sleek hulls, he took every opportunity to sail the bay, and soon became as expert with the tiller as with the pen. If further indication of his versatility is necessary, Hugh was very much at home with the Concert Band and Orchestra. In every task confronting him, Hugh has proved to be an excellent example of thorough- ness, reliability, and leadership. NEW YORK, NEW YORK " New York has everything " Norm told us, forgetting what lured him away from a jounrnalistic career in the big city. Editing his school newspaper and winning essay awards, Norm was caught up in a sea breeze that blew in over the skyscrapers and delivered him to our door in bell bottoms. If you wanted to see him in action, you ' d have to be quick. He might be out playing volleyball, Softball, touch football, tennis, or cross coun- try; he might be writing sports for the LOG or working for the TRIDENT; he might be in his room lecturing his wife on music appreciation. The rest of the time he would faithfully be with the little girl who has already put her brand on him. Failing vision may turn Norm to new fields— wherever he goes, he ' ll be at the top. ATLANTA, GEORGIA Mac began life in Shanghai, China, in 1927, and after the extensive travelling that is the lot of the Navy junior, he finally chose Atlanta as his home. While there, he attended Georgia Tech for one year, where he tasted the joys of college life under the auspices of Sigma Nu. Since entering the Academy, Mac has par- ticipated in numerous and varied company and bat- talion sports, but his great love has been sailing. He waited anxiously for the dawn of Second Class Year so that he might once more indulge in his hobby of record collecting. The greatest misfortune in his life has been the realization that he will soon be without those flowing golden locks. Regardless of all precau- tions and efforts to the contrary that hairline recedes inexorably! 14 196 n I WEST BRANCH, IOWA In high school, Andy won thirteen letters in baseball, football, basketball, and track, while presiding over the student council and his class. He continued his winning ways at Northwestern and Iowa, winning three more letters in baseball and basketball, and joining SAE and Phi Eta Sigma. Although his big love was Vaughn Monroe, he was rough and tough, too, being the only man ever to hit the B A head-on and walk away— four weeks later. We ' ll remember Andy for his quiet, un- assuming, and gentlemanly main, for his precise think- ing, for his sportsmanship, and for his responsive " all right, then " when approving of class policy, steam solu- tion, or his wife ' s drag. His ready smile was matched by his generous heart and enjoyed by scores of friends. §li€hard C mailctf SILVER SPRING, MARYLAND We recognized Dick as one to maintain a healthy cyni- cism about world events, deflating overemphasized is- sues while probing for hidden truths in those sloughed over. But " Tiger " was not on armchair philosopher; rather, he reflected his alias by viciously pursuing the sport at hand, whether it was with a tennis racquet, a number six iron, or the megaphone of a varsity shell cox ' n. In addition, dragging weekends usually found him explaining the difference between straight and diagonal stripes to some sweet young thing. After at- tending Calvin Coolidge High, Dick spent a year at Bullis Prep before exchanging his wide selection of bow ties for the uniform selection of starched collars of a midshipman. A line man now, he takes his good fellow- ship and discriminating taste to wardrooms to come. ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND Navy Bob attended high school in Newport, Rhode Island before coming to the Academy, but his family moved to Crabtown at the beginning of his Youngster Year so he felt right at home here at the Academy. Academics were not his bosom buddies, but Bob took them in his stride, although he had to shorten it several times. Robert ' s physical exertions were confined to batt and company sports, where he could always be counted on for needed points. A Navy booster from way back. Navy Bob was usually able to persuade us to find the silver lining when things seemed to be getting the better of us. Thus with a Navy brace and a Navy education. Bob put out to sea. • F O A T T 4 L I O N 197 O A T T A L I O N V f l EL PASO, TEXAS Ray spent thirty-two months in the regular Navy as a TM 1 c on a torpedo boat off New Guinea before re- nouncing the world and entering the Naval convent at Annapolis. The Judge was probably one of the hardest working men at the Academy, and was a consistent star with the " Good morning gentlemen, man the boards " group in the Academic Departments. " Red Mike Ray " spent his non-working time playing handball, fieldball, bridge, and a rather complicated 14th company game known as " Craig-Larson G.A. " Naval aviation was his main ambition, and he has already passed the unofficial flight aptitude test-he looked dapper in Ray-Bans, white scarf, and seaboots. If determination, hard work, and ability to get along with people will do it, Judge is a cinch for five stars. FAYETTEVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA Pennsylvania lost a good apple knocker in ' 43 when George left home to enter Brown University under the V-12 program. Prior to this he was a student at Mercers- burg Academy. After several months at Brown, George and the Navy decided that he would make a good seaman, so off to boot camp he went. From there George went to NAPS and three months ' duty on the " Dirty D " , patrolling the Chesapeake. On the second try he came through, and, ignoring a few minor mis- haps, made good. But, deep down, the call of the wild still echoes in George ' s soul, and we ' re making book that he ' ll have a Grime ' s Golden Delicious apple tree branching out of the ports of his PG as he patrols the upper reaches of the Yangzte. NEW BLOOMFIELD, MISSOURI The athletic ability of the " Wheel " is well known to anyone who has followed the recent Naval Academy sports, for he has been the mainstay of the basket- ball and track teams during the past four years. Aca- demics proved to be not much more mystery to John than the fine points of handling a basketball or a vaulting pole, as his fine academic record will attest. One of the Brigade ' s outstanding leaders, his sincere friendliness and fine sense of fair play earned him innumerable friends as well as the vice-presidency of his class. John met the light of his life at the end of Youngster Cruise and hopes to settle down to married life before continuing the career in Naval Aviation that he began before entering the Academy.

Here at the Academy, between sojourns on the excused and radiator squads, George devoted most of his spare time to boxing and the Radio Club. He was also interested in rockets, and has the distinction of being the only midshipman member of the United States Rocket Society. George has big and good ideas for his future, and his friendliness and warm personality will without a doubt spell success. meJBKlt . i A MATTOON, ILLINOIS Ted graduated from high school as president of his class, with letters in football, basketball, and track, as well as the honor of having been elected " Mr. Mattoon High School " by the feminine vote. Even Navy couldn ' t subdue Ted ' s fascination for the opposite sex, a fact that weary mail-carrying mates would readily uphold. Here our ex-radio tech man was active in the Musical Clubs, playing for the Concert Band, and singing for the Glee Club and Choir. On the Navy athletic fields, he applied his sporting nature to its best advantage, winning squad letters as JV center on the football team, and playing company volleyball and touch football. Ted definitely is giving something to the Navy in his ability and eagerness to do the job and do it well. U iitiam U).

Whether it was picking up a drag after a Baltimore football game or handling lines on youngster cruise, Tom put his whole heart and soul into the effort. His biggest disappointment in com- ing to Navy was probably Maryland ' s lack of long, steep hills and four feet of snow in the winter, for he was a proficient skier and a great winter sports en- thusiast. Athletics of almost every kind, shining shoes, scat-singing, and bemoaning the shortcomings of the female sex were Tom ' s main interests apart from the academic field. His highly polished bugle gleaming In the front rank of the Drum and Bugle Corps was testi- mony of his pride in the Corps. YUKON, PENNSYLVANIA After high school, where he had been president of the student council and had earned basketball and football letters. Walt took engineering at Pittsburgh for a year, again playing football, and then enlisted in the Navy, whence he arrived at the Academy with the early- comers Plebe Summer. To add to his fame, he distin- guished himself as a boxer, and as one who understood the finer points of the sport. Between the heavy bag and shadow boxing, he found time to develop a keen interest in photography, and was an active member of the Photo Club as well as the Newman and Foreign Language Clubs. His chief interests, other than girls, were records, dancing, and small planes. Brad plans to marry a few years after graduation and hove a few championship boxers in the family to carry on the line. ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA When those little white leave cards were issued, one could always find Jeff hurrying happily homeward— usually via a roundabout route to include all the oung ladies whom he classified as only casual acquaintances. JefF was quite proud of his home state and was always ready to expound the exploits of the University ' s Golden Gophers. He should know, too, because he performed quite creditably for three years on an undefeated Navy 150-pound football team. Fully realizing that fun and pleasure are of equal importance with work and study, JefF could usually be enticed away from his books for a little card game or a workout in the gym. He leaves behind many friends after four years of association. 4 200 tl i One Wng ilonces, ilwoys Golden ' formed JNovy Wond I study, sforo leoves ion, NEW YORK, NEW YORK Louisville, Kentucky, is where Bally was born, but Man- hattan was his home.

Even after two plebe years at Annapolis, Bally retained a happy and level-headed attitude toward the " system, " and he lost neither his desire to graduate nor his capacity for hard work. Bally ' s fine sense of humor and never failing enthusiasm made him a good companion at all times. He played as hard as he worked, and could make a squash game as important as a Wimbledon match. There were busy weekends entertaining girls from New York. An unfailing spirit and a will to win will see Bally through the toughest going. WOODSTOWN, NEW JERSEY After high school, J. B. enlisted in the Navy where he served as an armed guard for two and one half years, earning the rate of Gunner ' s Mate, third class, and won a fleet appointment to NAPS, thence to the Academy. One of the " fathers " of the company, he was elected as company representative for four years, and was known and liked throughout the brigade . Despite the fact that he had to grind away at the academics a little harder than most, J.B. found time for sports, play- ing baft and company football, and doing his share of blood-letting during the batt lacrosse games each spring. The Fleet is getting in J.B. a very capable man with a great sense of humor and a genuine liking for his fellow man— and a man to whom the Service means more than just a job. ARLINGTON, MASSACHUSETTS Massachusetts was certainly well represented by Bob who hailed from nearby Boston, " the hub of the uni- verse, " as George Apley would say. This lad with an ever present smile showed fine character in his jovial and cultured personality. His hard work and enthusi- asm in company sports won the admiration of his ship- mates while his dancing talents contributed to many a successful weekend. After Youngster Year, however. Bob confined these talents to one certain girl, and the volume of outgoing mail headed for Boston accounted completely for his spare time. He was conscientious in his studies, making good use of a fertile memory which paid off big dividends, especially in Bull which proved for him easiest and most enjoyable. F O A T T A L I O N 201 • F O A T T A L I O N Kenneth £.

A quiet smile and a friendly manner won him many friends immediately. Although a twenty year man at heart, LeRoy was always glad when leave rolled around and he could vector out toward those rolling hills of upper New York. Always interested in sports, he obtained most of his stamina from being a stalwart of the flying squadron. He quickly acquired skill at squash and other sports and sparked many intra-murol teams to victory. Amiable and with a ready humor. Ken is marked for success in the future. FRESNO, CALIFORNIA Drew was busy studying engineering at Fresno State University when he received his appointment. Quite a musician, having played in dance bands in high school and college, he naturally divided his talents between the NA-10, where, from Plebe Year on, he had a steady job giving rhythm, and the Hellcats. While staying true to the OAO, Drew managed to get his share of drag- ging and the fame of a locker full of photos. Summer cruises gave him a chance to increase the collection of antique weapons in which he took an avid interest. Stimulated, perhaps, by some of his murderous instru- ments, he won numerals on the plebe fencing team. Although he didn ' t always see eye to eye with the Math Department, Chev put up a good fight, and managed to come out on top. He hopes to be a submariner If the old orbs hold out. BAY VILLAGE, OHIO In high school. Jack lettered in football and basketball, carrying these abilities on to Bullis, where he repeated the performance, and then to Oberlin College, which he attended under the V-12 program. He entered Navy late in Plebe Summer, but many depended even then on his steadiness and sound judgment to help them through the first few months. He played on the plebe basketball team, and spent his spare time working out in the gym, his favorite place during leisure ti me. Drawing offered on outlet for his creative thinking. Within his company he was always a top man with high ideals and morals. With his record we are sure that he will be a success in the Fleet and an attribute to the Service. e plof wo H effl ' k llieii nielli l«i ' I 202 SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA Louisiana is still protesting Uncle Sam ' s abduction of this solid citizen of the South, for when he left, the Shreveport High School bond lost its best saxophone player, and the school lost one of its top men.

Here, Glenn was always the backbone of the intramural sports. At one time or another he bols- tered the cross country, soccer, 150-pound football, and Softball teams.

J.R. competed with both the plebe and JV soccer squads, and also turned out for Spike Webb ' s boxing tournaments, receiving two shiners as rewards for diligent efforts Youngster Year. His special interests lined up as classical music, chess, sailing, and philosophy. Although occasional dragging expeditions sometimes occupied his weekend time. Bob continued to scan the situation from the bachelor ' s de- tached point of view. Providing the Steam profs don ' t claim him as one of their own due to his knot-tying ability, he hopes to be a Naval aviator. ' Hanf rth Ctcwncni LEMOORE, CALIFORNIA Danny came to the Academy by way of the V-12 and NROTC units at the University of New Mexico. Although not a savoir theoretically, he put most of us to shame with his practical knowledge and experience in technical fields, electricity being the best example. He joined the juice gong Plebe Year, and for four years was one of the unsung heroes of Musical Club and Masquerader ' s shows. Anytime he wasn ' t dragging, either he had the watch or Patt, the OAO, couldn ' t come down for the weekend. The Drum and Bugle Corps, in which he twirled a mean tenor drumstick, also claimed a share of his attention. To those of us who have heard so many times that pep talk for the Supply Corps in particular, and USN in general, there is little doubt that Dan will be with the Navy for a long, long time. A T T A L I O N • 203 F O A T T A L I O N £€trce Collins ORANGE, NEW JERSEY A graduate of Farragut, Rip had already gained his nickname before he entered Navy, when his ripping attacks against the opponents ' lines won him the posi- tion of quarterback on the New Jersey All-State football team of 1943. Though he concentrated solely on foot- ball here, where he starred in the JV line, he had al- ready proven his versatility by his service on Williams College ' s lacrosse team. Rip has not gained the laurels of the savoir only because the inclination to hit the books never seemed to present himself, but his hearty laugh and bluff good nature have attracted friends as a magnet attracts iron. His Irish gift of gab belied the fact that he has never kissed the Blarney Stone. The formula for his inevitable success is contained in his own words, " enrich and embellish. " NILES, MICHIGAN Give him ten men who are stout-hearted men, liking a good time, and disdainful of a little trouble, and Karl will give you ten thousand more, for his magnetic per- sonality always meant a good time. At times, however, he directed this leadership ability along lines that def- initely indicated his eminent desire to beat the system. Karl came to us from Western Michigan University, where he had played basketball. Here at Navy, he tried a new sport, and won squad letters for three years in a row on the crew. His popularity and ability to serve were indicated by his being elected to the Class Ring Committee, on which he did a fine job. Karl has the wit, brains, and good nature to keep him outstand- ing and successful— he will never lack friends or good times, because wherever he goes, both will follow. §li€h«Mrd C. Cliniic KIRKWOOD, MISSOURI Stretch completed high school with seven letters in foot- ball, basketball, and track, and the presidency of his class and the student council. He then attended New Mexico for two years in the ROTC, where his math work earned him a place in Kappa Mu Epsilon, his social standing a place in Sigma Chi, and his basketball c place on the starting five. Here it was not long before he won numerals in plebe basketball and crew, and graduated to a place on the varsity. In off moments. Stretch could be found lounging in his army B-robe, taking life easy, and planning a campaign to take him from the explorer class into the group that is settled. He has yet to decide what part of the service to enter, but, as he holds a private pilot ' s license, the air corps would be a good guess. 204 in loot, yoffe New orl « sociol etkoll c 3 liefo(e ! , and lometit Tobe, take kim led •o enter, lif corps I GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN Ottoway Hills High School lost its floweriest and most dramatic leader when Rex discarded the reins as president of his senior class and stepped right into the Academy.

Craiq BELLAIRE, OHIO The world ' s leading exponent of " relative merit " served nine months in the Fleet before obtaining a Naval Re- serve appointment to Uncle Sam ' s boarding school on the Chesapeake. The origin of his appelation " Gar " remains a deep, dark mystery but its use was so wide spread that people took it for granted. In addition to actively engaging in intramural athletics. Gar was al- ways ready to suggest a sporting proposition on any- thing from the Rose Bowl to a Navy Junior boxing bout, and in his spare moments he could be found quoting odds on some obscure ping-pong tournament. Gar was always cool under the fire of the Academic Department, sailing through without the slightest sign of a strain. Indifferent to dragging, he usually preferred to spend his Saturday nights with the other bridge addicts. JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA When Jack arrived here from Florida, he brought with him certain definite preferences to impress on the minds of us Yankees. Notable among these were his attach- ment to " hash puppies, " yams, banana sandwiches, and a certain little southern blonde. As a student. Jack never was a star, but he always managed to defeat the Aca- demic Departments by dint of hard work and the maxim of never letting his social life interfere with his studies. Jack never boiled over under the rigors of Academy discipline, and always put the damper on our plans to blow up the O.D. ' s shack in our disgust with the monotony of the " Dark Ages. " With gradua- tion. Jack has realized the first of his life ' s ambitions. The second— that of being one of the Navy ' s fly-boys —he hopes to fulfill as soon as possible. • F O A T T A L I O N 205 r o A T T A L I O N LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA For many years " The Naval One " had shown an ardent desire to give his all for the Blue And Gold, so after U.C.L.A. and ten months in the Naval Reserve, he found himself, stencil brush in hand, singing those laundry number blues. It was not long after his entrance into the Academy that Dici acquired so great an interest in the system that many rainy afternoons he could be found among his associates studying the reg book. The out-of-door type, he spent most of his leave time camp- ing and fishing in the lofty peaks of the Sierra Nevadas. Travel was also high among his many interests, and he was seldom without fast developing plans for cruise, the next trip to Mexico, or a weekend in Washington. BUFFALO, NEW YORK Ed first began to develop that " casual look " as a wheel in the affairs of Bennett High School. Shortly there- after, the Navy discovered him and tried to make a hot pilot of him in V-5 at Hobart College, where the Kappa Sigs soon made him brother Dietrich. He slipped quietly into Navy on a third alternate, and drew on early ex- perience to take the wheel when ' 49 drew yawls for Seamo. Dabbling alternately in tennis, swimming, cheer- leading, and sack time, he whiled away the afternoons. Avowed interests also included lovely gals, good beer, and a favorite pipe, while high academic standing gave him time to pursue these with a diligence the gals and breweries could never regret. Despite an abhorrence for water, Ed hopes to surround himself with it in a Navy sub after graduation. Jules . cantfttcntBerc WISTON, CONNECTICUT " Demy " sailed into the Academy after two years ' ser- vice in Uncle Sam ' s Navy as an enlisted man, where he had a brief tour of duty on board the " Dirty D " and a longer stay at NAPS. Any spring afternoon we could find him down at the dinghy float helping the sailing team to victory, and in the winter he preferred to stay inside and spent his afternoons on the range, where he was captain and one of the crack shots of the rifle team. Jules learned quickly and stood high in his class both academically and with the Executive Department. As for girls. Demy seemed to have a special liking for nurses. Demy made friends easily and was well liked by everyone who knew him. This plus his capabilities for leadership make us certain of his future success. 206 I PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA The phrase, " My Wild Irish Rose " best described Doc, who left the party life of Beta Theta Pi at Carnegie Tech to come to us. As Doc went, so went the party, and his wit and personality were such that we always felt that we were having fun, even though it was often at our own expense. Before Carnegie Tech, Doc at- tended Riverside, where he played end on the football team. This football experience he put to good use with the company team, and the boxing experience he gained at Riverside was well displayed in many cruise boxing tournaments. He was also a member of the Spanish Club, but found his major difficulty to be discovering enough excuses to put away the books. That he did stand high academically indicated the quick mind and personality that spelled Doc and success. AMSTERDAAA, NEW YORK When John came to the Academy, he already had a year at Rensselaer Poly under his belt, and his collec- tion of scholarships attested to his ability to glide along easily under the academic strain. We remember him as never having been dressed in more than shoes and socks when the formation bell rang, but also as always being there— on time. Early in his Third Class Year, John realized the existence of the other sex, and since then he has never missed a chance to drag. Most of his non- dragging time he spent with his correspondence, the Glee Club, or playing Cornel Wilde in the fencing loft. An eye for pretty girls and a healthy appetite added to his enjoyment of life. John hopes to enter that august group known as Naval intelligence, where he expects to dig up some interesting addresses. TOLEDO, OHIO Tom came to the Academy after a year in Naval Avia- tion, and another at Bainbridge. From the first, his ability, resourcefulness, and amazing capacity for work have been devoted to extra-curricular activities, such as the Hop Committee, on which he served for three years, as well as the Ring Dance Committee, on which he served Second Class Year, and this LUCKY BAG, on which, as Business Manager, he has been the constant thwarter of the Editorial Staff. His main outside interests lay in New York, where the endless string of plays, musicals, and hot spots provided him with weekend diversions. On the other hand, as was befitting for a man who was one of our most unusual combinations of the sublime and the ridiculous, Tom was probably the most devoted supporter of conventionalism in the com- pany. F O A T T A L I O N 207 F O A T T 4 L I O N • LEWISTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA Already well on his way to getting a set of wings when the chance to enter Navy came, Jim forgot about the wings temporarily, packed his bag, and entered with our class. Academically secure despite his loud groans about bilging, he found time to enjoy himself, with sleeping as one of his major pleasures. In spite of his love for the sack, every fall found him out booting a soccer ball around with considerable success, and in the winter and spring intramural sports gained from what excess energy he could scrape up. His favorite hobby was putting out the word, subject notwithstanding, un- til he ran out of information or listeners ... he never ran out of subjects. The Navy ' s investment in Jim was a wise one, for in him they have gained a valuable officer, and we a good shipmate. LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA Born in L.A., but having spent much of his life in Massa- chusetts and Texas as well, " G- " was rather well trav- elled even before he decided to make a career of it. When he had the opportunity (not too frequently since enrollment in the trade school) G- took to the outdoors, listing camping, skiing, sailing, horseback riding, and tennis among his many favorites. On the other hand he had a deep interest for and appreciation of philos- ophy and the arts, particularly classical music and great literature. Although Doov ' s inherent understanding of people and broad general background made him an engaging conversationalist, his easy, non-commital man- ner was deceiving, for underneath he was a thinker, a shrewd analyzer, and a far-seeing planner; but, as he said, " Talk is too easy. " EVERETT, WASHINGTON Royce, who was born in God ' s country— Everett, Wash- ington, the land of stately trees and beautiful women —was always noted for his exactness in appearance and his steady plugging away at those Naval Academ- ics. He succeeded very well in this latter respect as he always stood in the top half of the class. Likeable Royce displayed his artistic talents in reproducing the counte- nances of his classmates, surprising each at all times with a likeness that was almost uncanny. Royce was a natural athlete and a good dancer which went well on weekends when one could see him at the hops jitter- bugging with the best of them. As he shoves off for Fleet duty, many good wishes go with him. 208 WINCHESTER, MASSACHUSETTS Virginia gave the world Robert E. Lee; from Ohio came the Tofts; New York offered the people the Roosevelts; and Massachusetts, not to be outdone, produced the one, the only, the incomparable. Wee Willie Eaton, bridge player, yachting enthusiast, connoisseur of fine wines, and unrequitted lover of all girls named Sue. Willie hailed from the environs of the Hub, and like his roommate and alter ego, Tinkham, boasted of a broad " A. " Our boy spent his spare time taking life as easy as the first class, the O.D., and the Reg book would permit. Bill ' s enthusiasm is Naval Aviation, and if he follows through, the Navy will have a natural born, full-fledged fighter pilot. §li€hard C. l hcl TEANECK, NEW JERSEY After several months at Kings Point and one month as a Navy boot. Poppy entered the Academy. He survived the rigors of Plebe Year, occupying himself, then as now, with attempting to uphold the fair name of " Joisey. " Selected for All-State honors in high school, he was sure to be an asset to the Navy soccer teams. Although he had once wanted to join the cadet ranks at West Point, Annapolis opened its doors first, and here he stayed. Many cadet soccer players have no doubt regretted this fact after clashing with the ag- gressive " Poppy. " An " always happy " fellow, Dick is looking forward to a career in Naval Aviation, and plans to marry the OAO right after graduation. MARCELINE, MISSOURI Jim took to Navy like a duck takes to water. It ' s not usually wise to make such comparisons, but in this case the saying fits, for from the day he took his oath, Jim and the Navy became inseparable partners. From his home in Marceline, he went to Missouri University, where he dabbled in chemical engineering, but with his sights set on a Naval career, he moved on to the Academy after one year of college. For four years now Jim has continued to amaze us by his manifold interests and activities apart from the academic field, in which, in- cidentally, he stood well near the top. The Choir, Glee Club, Band, Boot Club, and LOG all claimed some of his attention and to each he devoted a good share of labor and time. F O A T T A L I O N 209 • F O A T T A L I O N CORONADO, CALIFORNIA Plebe Year, when they asked Pete how he liked the Navy, he answered characteristically, " Oh, I ' ve always liked it. " A Navy junior from the word go, and proud enough of it. Fully sailed over to the trade school from Severn Prep, where he had been picking up the pointers with which he won his appointment in the Presidential competitive examinations. ' 49 is proud of this Honolulu- born Californian. Though smaller in stature than is gen- erally necessary in collegiate athletics, Pete has over- shadowed many in this field. What he lacked in size he more than made up for in driving spirit and deter- mination. A multi-N winner in lacrosse and soccer, he always kept his locker covered with lacrosse sticks and soccer shoes, and has contributed much to the spirit of athletics in the Brigade. ROCHESTER, NEW YORK Hailing from upstate New York, Bill entered the Naval Academy after attending the University of Rochester, Lafayette College, and seeing action with the Forty- fifth Infantry Division in Italy as a sergeant. As one must eventually come to all, a nickname came to Bill early during Plebe Year, his being Vul. Bill was almost al- ways available for a few fast games of handball or a game of cards, and like most of us at one time or an- other, was occasionally to be found answering the call of the sack in the late afternoon. When he had the time available, nothing interested him more than camp- ing in the mountains or travelling to some new and strange place. His broad experience and many capa- bilities should certainly help to clear the way to suc- cess in whatever activity he chooses to pursue. NEWARK, NEW JERSEY When New Jersey sent Fritz to Annapolis, he immedi- ately set affairs in order and installed his own infallable system. After four successful years at East Side High School and a short spell in both Newark College of Engineering and the Navy, he snared a senatorial ap- pointment to the Academy, and eventually joined the ranks of the " pampered pets. " Our first memories of him come when we remember how he drove the cares of Plebe Year into seclusion with his accordion playing. His athletic inclinations were many and evident in al- most all varieties of sporting endeavor. He excelled In intra-mural basketball, pushball, Softball, football, and soccer, and was a mainstay of each team. He was always a diligent worker, a fair disciplinarian, a sin- cere friend, and a jovial comrade. 1 ' 210 k, I, ' olloble ' e ' High oi rial op. Ike « ' ies ol le cmes ploying. it in a|.

A versatile athlete, he was always very active in intra-mural sports when not engaged in JV football or tennis. A firm believer in the theory " A thing worth doing is worth doing well, " he always stood in the top fifty of the class academically, with his great interest lying in Spanish, as was evidenced by his mem- bership in the Spanish Foreign Language Club. He was an avid reader of philosophy and diplomatic and histor- ical subjects, and developed for himself a set of princi- ples to which he adhered strictly in his everyday life. Mac spent his spare time reading and improving his outstand- ing bridge game. I I -y- Stephen S. QImmm NEW YORK, NEW YORK The Navy put one over on Yale with this New Yorker. Steve, fresh out of Fieldston in the " big town, " was snatched from the grasp of Yale University way back in the summer of 1945 by an observing Congressman who believed that this future ' 49er had what was needed to become a naval officer. We, his classmates, know that he was right. From the time that cutter crew 115 was formed during Plebe Summer right through to the last trying river, Steve has been hugging the top of his class. He was blessed not only with an outstandingly quick mind, but also with a spirit of tenacity that put him out in front in practically anything he undertook. A member of the golf team, he spent time with the LOG and movie taking for the N.A.A. diehard Hthman BROOKLYN, NEW YORK From tinkling, honking, teeming Brooklyn came Richard. He lived by it, swore by it, loved it; his own, his native Brooklyn. His English major at Penn State made him an encyclopedia for our woes with the Bull Department. During Plebe Year he literally flew over the cross coun- try course, earning the name of Gundar. An ardent admirer of French culture, he wooed his ladies with bon mots, objects de cuisine, and Parisian chatter. Gundor ' s interests were as full and varied as his native Brooklyn; literature, music, food ... his constant supply of food attracted a crew to his room nightly. His omnipresent smile attracted many a drag, and his affable, literary spiced manner enthralled them. His fondest desire is to be stationed at the Brooklyn Navy Yard . . . just ten blocks from his home. F O A T T A L I O N • 211 F O mtllon 2). Goldberg NEW BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS Coming from the old whaling town of New Bedford, Rube was destined for the sea. His first attempt to ful- fill his destiny was at Mass. Maritime Academy, from which, after two years, he was graduated with the rank of Third Assistant Engineer— that may account for the fact that he was a savant in steam. Not satisfied with that, however. Rube, wanting a more permanent at- tachment with the sea, came to Navy after twirling dials aboard a liberty ship for a few months. There was no question but that Milt ' s temperament was admirably suited for the Navy— the trials which, but for the five- mile limit, would have driven his classmates to drink, never phased him. He was one of the easiest to live with, and his generosity and unshakable sense of humor made his friendship one to be desired.

But never let his quietness fool you; he has always managed to get things done easily and efficiently. It has always seemed that the non-talkative boys have a way with the women, and Roy was no exception— that is, until he met his OAO. Though " Railroad " had no special athletic ability before entering the Academy, he became a fancier of gym- nastics and quickly developed himself into one of the top men on the side-horse. Roy found the academics no problem to his naturally brilliant mind, and, with radio and electrical experience gained in the Army, he took like a charm to the E.E. Department. SCARSDALE, NEW YORK Doug, commonly known to his friends by the name of " Guppie, " attended Middlebury College way up in the wilds of Vermont before coming to the Academy. After a day ' s classes here, his first comments usually were " Where ' s the card game, " or " Well, gotta hit the sack. " If P.T. and Skinny and Juice labs were omitted from the program here, his life would have been completely happy. One of the brighter lads in the class, he needed little time for study, and so had plenty to spare for his chief hobby, reading, and his secondary hobbies, the telling of slightly off-shade jokes and indulgence in his favorite subtle sarcasm. His athletic career was confined to intra-mural sports, where his big event was wrestling. Doug should make a future of which he and the Aca- demy can be proud. i 212 fO((l, from ' onl ' Ike Willi 1 01. diols »no obly five- Hive wnor U)iiii€Bm C. ali RUNNEMEDE, NEW JERSEY In high school Bill earned letters in four sports, con- centrating on that ancient and primitive form of homi- cide, lacrosse. After his sea duty time as a " skivvy waver " on the " Dirty D., " protecting the Chesapeake oyster pirates from enemy U-boats, Bill went to NAPS and then to the Academy. Although since he has been here Bill has learned what a " Dear John " letter is, he will always be a lady ' s man because he ' s an expert on blinker, too. His fondest dreams were those in which he was a signal officer on one of the Navy ' s fighting ships. We ' re all expecting great things from Bill be- cause he has plenty of determination and know-how to turn in a job well done. We ' ll all be back some day for the dedication of Ha l Hall. (W.

Bone starred In swimming and rifle in high school, won All-Prep honors in football and swimming at Bullis Prep, and added lacrosse to these during his years at the Academy. Look for Mammy boy on your cruises to the south latitudes; his warm bloodedness seems to provide the motivating force behind his desire for permanent tropical shore duty. McALESTER, OKLAHOMA This prominent member of the Academy ' s brain trust hailed from McAlester, Oklahoma, one of those towns that makes you ask, " What ' s it near? " Two years at New Mexico Military Institute with math as his major seemed to have prepared Bob very well for Navy ' s scholastic hurdles, for he managed to stay consistently high in all subjects without undue strain. An excellent golfer, he played on both the plebe and varsity teams. Outside of golf, he participated in few main sports, al- though he could always be counted on to fill out a foursome in either handball or bridge. Still debating whether or not to remain in the Navy, Bob feels the air arm is the only lure that could permanently at- tract him.

On Sundays, after choir, he taught a Sunday School class to round out the day. Athletics also ofFered an outlet for his abundant supply of energy— a fine golf player, he has been a member of the plebe and varsity golf teams for four years. As he was always ready with a smile and out-of-date joke, his amiability made him a favorite at bull sessions and a popular companion for the scores of ladies, six years old and up, in his life. (Wiiiiam £. HawwU. Jr. JUNEAU, ALASKA Sure it gets cold in Maryland, but no matter how bitter the winds brew on the banks of the Severn, there was always one guy who didn ' t care about " collars up. " Bill ' s hometown, Juneau, Alaska, never gets cold either, so he said. There was actually a better answer to why this Texas born Alaskan never gets cold— he just never slowed down long enough to feel what ' s going on around him. There was probably no other member of this class who had more irons in the fire at the Academy than Bill. Most of his non-academic interests, how- ever, were connected in one way or another with his camera, and with it he won the post of the LOG Photo Editor for two years. When not taking pics of some athletic team or Drag of the Week, Bill could be found behind a baritone horn in the Concert Band or gadget- tinkering in his room. TEXARKANA, TEXAS A year at Texarkana Junior College and a brief stay at Mississippi in the V-5 were Bill ' s preparation for the Academy. Although Tex spent four of the best years of his life within a high stone wall, they could never fence in that radiant smile which spells be- nignity. After he injured his knee on the gridiron. Bill spent most of his time under billowing sails on the Chesapeake, the most expansive range this part of the country had to offer him. Whether winning the graces of the Lady Provost of Edinburgh or a smiling Texas belle, he proved his diplomacy and finesse time and time again. His tenacity, thoroughness, and subtle wit, together with his ability to win friends, insure a bright future which he certainly deserves. 214 SHERBORN, MASSACHUSETTS " No Trump " Henderson enlisted in the Navy right after high school, and the Navy, foreseeing a shortage of admirals in 1970, shipped him to NAPS, whence he came to the Trade School courtesy of SecNov. A Bay Stater, he followed the New England tradition, and rare was the Saturday that did not find him flaked out at the wheel of a yowl. He spent his non-sailing time playing handball, soccer, fieldboll, bridge, and any other game that called for a cool head and a strong back. As well as these, the end of any football game found Don sweating out statistics in the press box with a few other talented slaves on the Public Relations Committee. A " Pale Pink " Mike, Don intended only Naval Aviation on graduation, but one can never tell— red is a dangerous color. F O WOODBURY, NEW JERSEY After starring in football, basketball, and baseball in high school, and then studying for a year at Bullis Prep, Bob was ready to take the Academy in stride. In aca- demics, a minimum of application brought him through successfully, and in athletics his post experience enabled him to be selected for the All-Brigade football team and to win his numerals in plebe swimming. As an amateur photographer, he has amassed an admirable collection of color slides. One of the most popular men in the company. Bob had a sincerity and natural charm that have won him an impressive array of friends. With the resourcefulness and leadership ability that he has demonstrated here. Bob will be a valuable asset to the Navy. MARLBORO, NEW YORK Born and bred in the helter-skelter life of the Bronx, Bob attended Brooklyn Tech High School, where he made a formidable record in academics, as well as contributing to the success of the swimming team. He then entered the Navy, and served several months aboard the cruiser Pasadena as an R.T.— his radio ex- perience was continually being put to good use in re- pairing radios around Bancroft. At the Academy, Snek (that ' s the last part of Hennekens spelled backwards) has devoted most of his time to company and battalion sports, including swimming, lacrosse, football, soccer, Softball, and that famous sport of Plebe Year, pushball. Quite a tennis and basketball fan, he spent many a spare moment on the courts watching and playing. His friendliness, love of a joke, ready smile, and sincerity assure his future. A T T A L I O N 215 w o A T T A L I O N • ROCKFORD, ILLINOIS Although from the " Heart of the Middlewest, " Hib spent most of his pre-Academy days in the Navy, attending, and then teaching at Quartermaster ' s school. Before that he had attended the Universities of Illinois and Wis- consin, and fondly admits that his most important find at the latter was his OAO. Most any afternoon, Hib could be found engaging in volleyball or steeplechase, in both of which he was a major cog on brigade cham- pionship teams. Except for those weekends of watch, Hib never missed dragging his OAO and this proved to be his chief avocation at Navy, although he read a lot, and occasionally played a good game of pool. Al- though rather indefinite about plans beyond the im- mediate future, Hib is heading for the Fleet for the next few years, at least. COFFEEVILLE, KANSAS From the wheat fields and oil wells of Kansas came the " Stump " to Navy. A true water loving lad, he spent many an hour slaving over an oar for th e crew team, rounding out the spring by putting the shot for the batt track team. Bob worked hard on getting checked out in all aspects of this man ' s Navy, starting out as an ETM striker and continuing with ten days in the V-12. Submarines are Bob ' s special interest in the fleet even though they do not have oars. Dragging and mail made up a good portion of his outside interests. Parties were one of Stump ' s fortes; he could usually be found in the midst of the planning and execution of these opera- tions. With his drive and congeniality. Bob makes a fine friend and will certainly make a success of his career. READING, PENNSYLVANIA Fritz was a pretzel eater, a tennis player, a lover of Beethoven. Fritz, a TKA man, was studying engineering at Penn State, and is seriously inclined toward Civil Engineering Corps in the Navy. With his academics brushed aside in a matter of minutes, he spent most of his time reading and listening to classical music. He enjoyed the Wagnerian and Norse styles most, and could pronounce the titles like a native. We often found him devouring the current issue of Harpers, a volume of philosophy, or a psychology text. He doodled in de- signs of airplanes and automobiles, and his teardrop design for the " Fritz-mobile " was well known to us be- fore an Italian designer " copied " it. Fritz is a true engineer. lout olliei the I wilh h kigh piog whef No») id 10 tig onili I 216 WARREN, OHIO Hank has become a well-known personality during his four years with us. Many knew him as the man with no hair who lived in the varsity pool for three years; others knew him as not the gentlest of defensemen on the lacrosse team; all, however, knew him as the man with the big laugh and the blunt, but pleasing manner. The Navy has been his vocation since graduation from high school, when he enlisted in the V-5 flight training program, and was almost within sight of a pair of wings when he realized a life-long ambition, and came to Navy. His time in Naval aviation left its mark, however, and although it ' s taking longer this way, he still plans to wear those wings. Above average in almost every- thing. Hank was a versatile athlete, a good organizer, and a team man whether on or ofF the sports fields. CORONADO, CALIFORNIA Few indeed are those who have not heard the pulsating rhythms of Bunny Berigan, the solid south, the Jazz Classics, etc., from his room, for relaxation to Mike was jazz records and one of his beloved pipes. Hoss has held down a guard position on the varsity for four years, where his tackles and blocking have proved him both a bulwark on the defense and a power on the offense. In the winter he led his company to constant wins in fieldball, where his bulk and ball sense made him an outstanding member of the attack. He was al- ways ready for a handball game and took on all chal- lengers. When you see him twisting across the floor with your drag, a smile on his face and a dreamy look in her eyes; brother beware! The Marines claim Bob for one of their future generals. EPPING, NORTH DAKOTA The Prof, so called because of his great thirst for, and suffusion of knowledge was, barring few, the most dy- namic and energetic man at Navy. His thirst for adven- ture took him prospecting in Alaska Youngster Leave. He has mingled with cattlemen, bankers, engineers, salesmen, a nd dirt farmers, and his humor and varied interests permitted him to meet man to man and talk eye to eye with all he met. Few men entered their aca- demics and recreations with such ardor as the Prof. Noises, bells, and pestering classmates bothered him not. Humorously enough, his famous nose has lead him to more facets of life than all the dreamers of the uni- verse. Once having met the Prof, one can never forget his sharp mind, his sparkling, picturesque speech, and his intense personality. • F O A T T A L I O N 217 F O A T T A L I O N NEW YORK, NEW YORK From high school, Dick left little old New York for the first time and took his place with those on the Severn ' s shore. A star man, he was always ready to explain the intricacies of each P-work, and has guided many through the maze of academics. He loved soccer, despite the many bruises which seemed to be his lot, and returned early from cruise each year for fall practice with the JV squad. In addition, Dick found time for overnight sailing trips and dragging, although his sailing career was nearly cut short Youngster Spring, when can No. 5 sneaked up on him in an off moment, and he wound up in someone ' s back yard in Eastport. Good judgment and work insure Dick ' s success after graduation. BUTLER, PENNSYLVANIA George came the long way, via the Navy V-12, Penn State, and Cornell where he picked up a little me- chanical engineering. Academically he has managed to score consistently, to stand right up with the brains and trade them blow for blow. Socially, George was always able to produce some previously unseen queen. Field- ball, the pride of the company, would not have been the championship club it was if George had not been in there rocking the opposition. Soccer formerly held George ' s interest but he gave it up as he advanced in age and wisdom. Filled with a love of the adventure and thrills that uncertainty ofFers, George liked to in- vade foreign lands loaded with lovelies or bid six no trumps with a pair of aces out against him. CANTON, OHIO After one year at Capital University in Columbus, and an additional year at Cornell in the V-12, Bob decided to go all out for Navy and join the regulars. Some- where in this checkered education he picked up a thor- ough and extensive knowledge of poker which he put to good stead amusing and horrifying his classmates on cruise. In the winter he turned either to the handball courts or to the radiator club and a fine collection of classical records. As a member of the LOG advertising staff, he did much of the tedious, behind-the-scenes work necessary to put out our humor magazine. Bob is all for shore duty, and the officer in charge of distribut- ing ensigns could make him mighty happy by giving him any duty firmly attached to terra firma. 218 Some.

After discarding his civilian clothes, he spent most of Plebe Summer learning the ways of the military at extra duty. Ken soon developed a love for the sack and for cards. Whenever time could be found you would invariably find him up to his neck in a pinochle or pitch gome. He was never satisfied unless he had his doily workout whether it be in com- pany or bott sports, the gym, or extra duty. His ex- pression of an ever present desire to be home provided the bright spot in our black Navy days. His generosity, quick smile, and dependability will serve him well in his career. I I DUBUQUE, IOWA With the Universities of Dubuque and Iowa, service in the Army Air Corps, and the Sigma Phi Epsilon fra- ternity behind him, Kep entered Navy in July 1945. Athletics, he believed, were invented to depopulate the earth, but always willing to do his share, Kep helped with this depopulating when he played on the invincible second company fieldboll team. Overcoming his hatred of the slide rule and his aversion to all forms of mathe- matics, Kep stands well up in the noombs. Suave Bob lived up to his name through such campaigns as the battle of the BTIIS cards, the fights of focs ' le under Forgo and taming of the Marine Juniors. His search for absolute beauty paralleled science ' s quest for per- petual motion . . . often approached but admittedly impossible. MIDDLEPORT, OHIO The change from the country club of the V-12 unit at Dennison University to the grim realities of the system at Navy was a big step, but Fritz took it all in his stride. A welcome addition to the company teams, he brought his qualities of fair play and good sportsmanship to the fore there, and, initiated into the fields of toil and turmoil by pushball, he was conditioned for his later role as center for the batt football team. His meanderings among the field of amour were many and varied, but none of them seemed to have a lasting efFect on our strong, silent man. Although a charter member of the holystone brigade on Youngster Cruise, he found the flying on Second Class Cruise more to his liking, and chances are that in the future he will be pushing Uncle Sam ' s warbirds.

Although his sports experience hod been limited to basketball. Ken promptly won the tackle position on the plebe football team, and in later years found himself playing the same position with the varsity. Crew, however, turned out to be his favorite sport, for his 6 ' 3 " frame covered with over two hundred pounds of muscle enabled him to wield a really mean oar. For four years he has played a big part in the crew ' s victories, his greatest thrill coming Youngster Year when he rowed with the varsity crew that won the Poughkeepsie Regatta. After graduation.

C Q. §ifch€hnMcr, III UTOPIAN, IOWA After Loras College and twenty-one months of both Navy and Army life. Red was already a merger product when he first stepped inside Bancroft. Although at times Kretsch might have disagreed, from the very first he took to Academy existence like a P.T. boat to water. Never one to let the system pinch too hard, this loyal son of Utopian found that academics left ample time to join the boys on the soccer field or handball court, and few were the sports for which Red lacked either en- thusiasm or ability. Occasionally forsaking the athletic field, he utilized off hours to delve into the intricacies of higher literature. Women provided merely casual diversion to the redhead, and he seldom maintained active interest in more than ten or twelve at a time. U)atta€e J. neiw, Jr. ALLENTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA After he attained the valedictory in High School, Wally followed a brief term at Lehigh University with a hitch as a seaman RT, and civilian life at Muhlenburg before Navy. With his keen intellect and broad background, from the first he placed himself at the top of the class. His good humor, sharp wit, and pleasing personality have made him well liked, and his versatility as an accomplished pianist made him much sought after at any social gathering. In addition to music, his other hob- bies were photography, novel and short story writing, and the composition of musical comedies. Wally looks toward the submarine service after graduation.

Bud ' s permanent wig- wam was located in Peoria, Illinois, where he excelled in football and basketball. He was known as " Chief Crazy Horse, " after a great warrior of the Sioux tribe in generations gone by. Coming to the Academy from Bradley College and a sojourn in the United States Army, Bud earned the friendship and respect of us all through his ability to take it with a smile. His energetic nature and good clean honesty will carry Bud far in his chosen branch of the Service. I ot W. £awBhcn€MMM SCARSDALE, NEW YORK One of Westchester ' s better products, Roy could never be accused of allowing academics to interfere with the serious side of life, wine, women, and song. A good athlete and a very good bridge player, he managed to struggle through the seemingly endless days without being the least bit bored. Whether it was a football weekend or a hop, Roy was always happy as long as school was out. Although he had small differences of opinion with the Steam and Skinny Departments, he has now seen the light. Never the most reg man in the Academy, Roy was largely successful in evading the long arm of the O.D. with only a few measely hours spent in winning E.D. cutter races for the greater glory of the class of ' 49. LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY Jack was almost too good to be true— whether it was on the tennis, basketball, soccer, or volleyball courts, on which he won assorted letters and numerals, or on cruise, in classrooms, the mess hall, or any other place where personalities were uncovered, he demonstrated, with almost calculated nonchalance, his ability to get along, his keen sense of humor, and his background as a Kentucky gentleman. Jack ' s big ambition was to breed and raise horses at the farm he hopes to found in the future. Raise the point of horses, and you ' d discover a half-hour ' s worth of riches from the wealth of his equine information, presented in so interesting and confident a manner as to entrust equal confidence in all his en- deavors. r o A T T A L I O N 221 • r o A T T A L I O N ahcri £. £€Mwlew ' , Jr. WOBURN, MASSACHUSETTS Bob resigned his commission as a second lieutenant in the Army Air Corps to come to the Naval Academy. A conscientious student, he devoted much of his spare time to reading and studying languages with the result that his French ranked with the best in the class. Fall, though, found Bob busy on the 150 pound football team, on which he played tackle since its inception in 1946. Although the quiet type, he had a keen sense of humor, and could be counted on to appreciate one ' s favorite jokes. At present he threatens to remain a bachelor for at least for a few years. He hopes to get back in the blue by way of Naval Aviation as soon as possible, and all of his friends are sure that his Naval career will be an especially brilliant one. Mttan m. £indtf PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA Al was strictly a star man on any weekend. One might even say that his weekend " Joy " brought light into the darkest of Dark Age Saturdays. During the week extra- curricular activities took their tolls of Al ' s time. While masquerading as the voluptuous " Butter-cup " in " Op- eration Pinafive, " he acquired a distinction which after- wards made him invaluable in cruise " happy hours. " In football he was one of those rough " Mighty Mite " line- men. With the experience gained at Valley Forge he outflanked the Executive Department shamefully, and the academics gave him little or no worry. Perhaps Al took his hints from Dale Carnegie ' s How to Win Friends, for his winsome personality and wholesome character enriched any occasion. ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND Teej has been a source of constant amazement to his friends throughout our four years here. His ability to scan an assignment lightly and have it cold has amazed everyone. Squint-eye claimed that he had to save his eyes for Semper Fidelis when he was graduated so he read all forms of literature but textbooks. His social ability even surpassed his ever-surprising personality. No man dared introduce a cute drag to him without forewarning the doomed girl that she was about to lose her heart. Even so, T. J. was never at a loss for a queen, from Florida to Florence. Always in search of new fields to conquer, Ted was the Sammy-Lu-Baugh- Jack of the J.V. football team in the fall and spring, while starring on championship fieldball teams and burning up the handball courts in the winter. 222 ?

A back injury in spring practice cut short a very promising career after a brilliant start as fullback for the undefeated ' 49 plebe football team, but that didn ' t dim his ardor for golf, tennis, or whatever else was in season. He hopes to follow in his father ' s footsteps as a head coach. Although he had no OAO, his locker door was plastered with pictures of beauti- ful young hopefuls. Aside from his capacity for food, Bill ' s outstanding trait was the perseverance with which he saw a job through. Our recollections of this bull- built Texan in future years will certainly include his big smile, his sincerity and true friendship, and those Mark 42 ears. I DULUTH, MINNESOTA Although originally a product of the land of Paul Bun- yan, Pete came to Navy via various routes of the Fleet, including NROTC and NAPS, where he picked up the inevitable Mac. During Plebe Year he gained a deep respect for a breadpan and the voice of authority, and a true love for the Service. He was always the modera- tor in gripe sessions, cheering the despondent, and calm- ing the furious. After participating in plebe swimming and dinghy sailing, he changed to intramural sports for the rest of his time. Although a middleman academic- ally, he was tops in amour, and subscribed to the theory of keeping them all happy. Well liked by everyone, a capable man with a stern eye for every errant plebe, Mac will be an excellent and respected addition to the Fleet. Jo fff m. maUard, Jr. PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA Johnny was born a Navy Junior in Philadelphia and be- gan his formal education at Georgia Tech. Two months before his graduation, he resigned from the NROTC pro- gram and came to the Academy convinced that the Navy was to be his life ' s work. John was perpetual motion personified. After a " terrific " evening or an " excrutiat- ing " day at Navy, John ' s only requirement seemed to be a hot shower after which he was ready to " roar " ofF again. These words he used continuously, yet they always made us laugh. Like his spirit, his vocabulary typified Johnny ' s personality. John will succeed for three reasons: he is modest, he makes a strong impres- sion on those who know him, and he is self-confident. F O A T T A L I O N • 223 F O A T T A L I O N • HOLDERNESS, NEW HAMPSHIRE A former flyboy, Rusty labored these four years with just one purpose in mind— to graduate and return to the flying fleet. Originally from New Hampshire, he ac- quired at McKinley Tech in Washington the skill in shooting that he showed on the plebe rifle team, and would have, but for eyestrain, showed on the varsity. It was two years before suave, wavy-haired Rusty took full advantage of the Academy social life, but from then on he made up for lost time. His hobby of photog- raphy, which won him the post of Secretary-Treasurer of the Photo Club, has left him with an account of our life here that will be of interest to all of us when we meet him in the fleet in years to come. SAN ANGELO, TEXAS Mike dropped in from out Texas way bringing with him quite a few pounds of beef and a lot of Texas humor. Navy ' s system had little effect on him, for from six months on, Mike was a hard-working, exceptionally likeable fellow. At Navy Tech he abandoned his usual full varsity sports program (in football, tennis, track, and baseball in high school and college) in order to pursue a more intense mental course. M ike was a travel- ling man, too, using his leaves to jump off to some spot he had never seen before. Most of the United States, parts of Canada, Mexico and even Alaska have known his presence on these leave excursions. Probably the most conspicuous thing about this Texas boy was his consistent unending drive towards his goal. BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA At high school, Jim was on outstanding member of his class, winning awards in football, track, and boxing, and being valedictorian and senior monitor of his class. Here he has continued to be outstanding, playing JV and batt football, perfecting his javelin-throwing tech- nique for the batt track team, and entertaining us with the products of his artistic talents for drawing and paint- ing, whether " pinup or portrait. " The " Colonel " was liked everywhere for his unfailing good nature, his deep- seated sense of fair play, and his thoughtfulness, and his unusually good judgment and keen knowledge of human nature have impressed us all. Jim, who claimed that he was from so far south that to him, Georgians were Yankees, has high hopes of someday becoming an admiral in the Confederate States ' Navy. 224 p Joseph §ir. ntttrwiMnn ELLSWORTH, KANSAS Though the academics never bothered him half as much as he thought they did, Joe was more than willing to accept that diploma, for, wrapped carefully in that cer- tificate was a hometown OAO, and his chief mental hazard, outside of the books, for two and a half years, was how to keep that ring on her fmger. During his off-hours, we could always find Joe either sleeping on his bed, tooting his cornet, snoozing on a chair, help- ing the choir with his beautiful tenor voice, or catching some shut-eye. His stocky frame could be seen during the winter months springing from the diving boards in the Natatorium, where he was Navy ' s crack diver for three years. Possessed with an energetic vitality and a persistent, stubborn, but profitable outlook, Joe, with his laugh, will long be remembered. yawncs 2). ntwBrwat ., Jr. ARDSLEY, NEW YORK After high school, where, in addition to excelling in academics, he had won letters in football, track, rifle, and lacrosse, Jim attended Wesleyan College in the V-12, where, as well as being initiated into Beta Theta Pi, he continued his athletic career with intercollegiate competition in wrestling and track. Soon after his en- trance, his nickname, " Atom, " was born— based on the explosive power and speed contained in his small sta- ture. These qualities have often since been shown on the cinder oval of Thompson Stadium and in the gridiron battles of our championship 150-pound football team. In going to the fleet, Jim is following in the footsteps of his father, now retired. His quiet no+ure and pleasant smile have gained him many stalwart friends who wish him luck and success in future years. PORTLAND, OREGON Whoever said " A friend in need is a friend indeed " must surely have been thinking of Don, for, in the years that we ' ve spent with him, he has certainly proved himself a friend at all times. After high school, where he lettered in baseball three years in a row, he majored in liberal arts for a year at Oregon State College. That his baseball experience has helped him was proved by his winning three squad letters here as a member of the varsity. That Don had little trouble with the books we credit mainly to a keen mind. We feel that he will have as little trouble with life, and that his career will be a successful one, for his friendliness and natural zest for a good time will win for him the same popularity, success, and wealth of friends that he won here. F O A T T A L I O N 225 PORT WASHINGTON, NEW YORK Phil has been as outstanding here as he was in high school, where, in addition to being a class leader, he had been a three-year letterman in basketball, and the field general of the football team. Here he was the nucleus of the strong line that won three Intercollegiate Championships for the Navy 150-pound football team. Not satisfied with three N ' s in football, Middy Phiddy also played lacrosse, where he was awarded two squad letters for his efforts. His keen mind and sparkling per- sonality will be as hard to forget as the fun we had with him. In years to come, Phil ' s career will follow the same line that it already has in high school and at the Academy— it will be marked with many friends and achievements, just tributes to his winning ways. gave Ike Iflj on • Stroll id neJ i " ' mi port w i hii cliief octomp ' people kigh, h« logious. we will F O A T r 4 I I O N MOLINE, ILLINOIS After high school, where he had lettered in wrestling, track, and football, as well as engaging in dramatics, life became a whirl of transfers for Rocky, starting with mechanical engineering at Augustana College, going to the V-12 at Cornell, then to Norfolk, where he served in the Fleet before coming to Navy, his last stop. Al- though not very big. Rocky packed quite a punch, as his opponents in the ring will testify. Besides boxing, he competed in plebe football, varsity track, and com- pany gym, as well as being an active member of the Portuguese and Ornithology Clubs. Girls were attracted to him as bees are to honey, and, not in the least averse to the weaker sex. he dragged when finances permitted, but kept the fires burning for a Baltimore gal like the one-woman man he ended up. BRONX, NEW YORK New Yorker by birth but Irishman by name and tempera- ment, Ned was known for his gift of gab and the roguish eyes that showed his delight for the simple things. We in the wigwam knew him as Chief Laughin ' Face, an honorary member of The Great Cherokee Nation. Dur- ing the recent conflict he spent thirty months in the Marines and some time on the " peaceful " little islands in The Great Calm Waters to the West. During his high school days he became an accomplished artist with the pool cue, an art that didn ' t help him amid the T square and eraser dust. His winning smile and " poisonal magnotism " have carried him to the notice of everyone in the Brigade and will carry him far in his chosen pro- fession, the Marines. n ifflp A- 226 m in higt wos the illegiote ill teon, flliddy squod ' " 9 fit- 1 folio ond 01 nils and RICHMOND, VIRGINIA From the old south came this good-looking stalwart who gave the profs so much pronunciation trouble. After be- ing on the track team and being elected to Quill and Scroll in high school, Bob went to three semesters of pre- med in the V-12 at Richmond University, where he was on the football team and went Kappa Alpha. Here he has participated in varsity track, bott boxing, and batt track, as well as singing with the choir. With music being his chief interest, it was not surprising that he was a very accomplished classical pianist. Bob was one of those people who have friends everywhere. His ideals were high, his character was strong, and his honor was con- tagious. His line plunge into life will not be denied, and we will hear more of him on the honor rolls of the future. I I 1 StMttnnew afh r NEENAH, WISCONSIN He sailed the lakes in the summer and iceboats in the winter. He skated Lake Placid and skied in the Adiron- dacks. He lived in Wisconsin and attended school in New York. He was one of the skippers of the Highland Light, and gave up two weeks of Youngster Leave to sail the Light in the Bermuda race. He had but one trouble, his eyes. When he could see the spots, he was a shrewd, cagey bridge player, with his photographic mind engraving all the played tricks on his memory. He mentally multiplied and divided faster than our slide rules, and jumped numbers while hardly studying at all. His diligent work on the Advertising staff of the LUCKY BAG has put him in good training for the Sup- ply Corps, unless he con squint at the eye chart more adeptly. ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA The Academy has been Warren ' s one desire ever since he gurgled his first word, " Navy. " Born in Chefoo, China, he saw his share of the world, had a year of engineering in college, where he played football and basketball, served a tour of duty in bell-bottoms as a radarman, and finally came to rest on the banks of the Severn. Despite a college injury, he has made a good showing with crew, track, and many company sports. Most of " Shermo ' s " boundless energy has been devoted to services as Chairman of the Class Crest and Ring Committee, Brigade Activities Committee, TRIDENT staff. Photo Club, LUCKY BAG, Masqueraders, Musical Club Show, and a host of others. Weekends were devoted to sleep and collecting Bing Crosby records until an admiral ' s daughter temporarily reclassified one Red Mike. When Warren leaves here, he starts toward his second goal— wings. F O A T T A L I O N 227 F O R T A T T A L I O N §i9q r W. cawd, Jr. SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA Hailing from the southernmost part of southern Cali- fornia, Rog transferred to the Academy after a term at U.S.C. Anything dealing with aircraft had interest for " Purd, " and although he rarely missed a weekend of dragging, he kept his locker so full of pictures of super- sonics and jets that there was no room left for the femmes. Though he was interested in all sports, his first love was soccer, and the awards that covered his B-robe and his invitation to the Olympic tryouts were evidences of his skill with the foot. An avid photographer, he rarely missed covering an event of importance with his 35mm., and each Sunday entered into the battle of the darkroom. Roger ' s heart lies with the Leathernecks— the family line— where his gameness, wit, and stick-to-itiv- ness will carry him far. SOPERTON, GEORGIA Pete came to Naval from Georgia Tech, with a passion for Georgia politics, and an endless store of talk about Georgia ' s governors. Although he never seemed to know whom he was going to drag until right before the hop, his easy-going nature got him femmes wherever he went— even Crabtown. He never failed to take his daily workout in the gym to keep in shape, but in aca- demics he was as easy going as elsewhere, staying just above the 2.5 mark in Skinny and Dago, although he hit the Math with practically no effort. His chief Plebe Year trouble was finding the answers to Lagen ' s impos- sible professional questions. A true southerner, he never would learn to sing " Marching through Georgia, " and never gave up his southern drawl. EL PASO, TEXAS Although this Longhorn was a rare specimen, being kind of quiet, we soon found that his tranquillity was a front for the real man. He was inclined to be a " bar and bell " boy, and during any afternoon an equally enterprising man could find him over in MacDonough playing Smoe forty-nine times over a chinning bar. In addition he filled out the various sports seasons excel- ling for his company in touch football, boxing, bowling, volleyball, and Softball, contributing more than his share to bringing home the bacon. Jim served a short hitch in bell bottoms, working for the " wheel, " but came to OOSNA just in time for the closing gun on the class of ' 49. He joined the plebes just as they joined the Brigade and never has gotten over beating the system out of Plebe Summer. 228 being enuolly owling, » shore t Mick one to :los! of irijode out of Claude J. QuMitten BEDFORD, INDIANA The Cherokee of them all was this proud warrior from Bedford, Indiana, whose name varied from " Blooper " to just plain Claude. He excelled in the pronunciation of that favored Indian expression, " Ugh! " Coming to the Naval Academy from Notre Dame and the Navy, Blooper excelled in his studies at the House of Deten- tion. He not only put his name on the top of the class list, but he also helped others to keep their names on the books. It was hard to find where his answers came from. We searched his sack for four years and found absolutely nothing but thoroughly flattened feathers. Claude will never have trouble making life a success. His keen understanding of human nature and his jovial personality, plus a sense of complete relaxation makes the Blooper at home with anyone anywhere. P I BENTONVILLE, ARKANSAS From deep within the heart of the Razorback State, via the Pacific Theater, where he served as a radioman, came Gene. This quiet operator understood the finer points of Spanish culture, for one leave he took off for Mexico City and came back " tocando las castanetas. " Almost any day we could find him rattling his gourds, clicking the castanets, or listening to the latest of South American rhythms. Instead of slaving away, Gene sensed the right solutions to Math probs and worked them out by feel and intuition. Gene was one of the few of us who understood and firmly believed in the system. He is most interested in Engineering Duty Only, and wonts to exercise his intuitive powers designing new turbines and steam plants. James . §leddi€h. Jr. DENVER, COLORADO When Jim is an admiral, they will still be telling the story of his four unsuccessful attempts to moor a YP to the sea wall during a bumper drill. That ' s only one of many stories we ' ll enjoy rehearing about a fellow whom we admire and respect, not only for his natural ability to keep us laughing but also for his sincerity as a friend whom we could count on any time. Jim was one of those " few and far between " fellows who have a magnetic quality of personality, that of making everyone he meets his immediate friend and admirer. He sailed in to the Academy from Denver, Colorado, by way of Notre Dame. A stalwart member of many a good battalion track team, he didn ' t confine his athletic activities to the cinder oval, but was a fine wrestler as well. F O A T T A L I O N 229 F O B A T T A L I O N DENVER, COLORADO " Navy Bob " was undoubtedly one of our most versatile men. Active in all things musical, he had a piano repertoire that included a large portion of the classics and all the Tin Pan Alley tunes of the last tv enty years. As v ell. Bob devoted considerable time to first accompanying, and then directing the Glee Club, and occasionally indulged his flair for composing. His ath- letic interests v ere varied, and included soccer, field- ball, and pushball. A former V-12 at Westminster, Bob will not find any field too difficult for him. Being with him was like a day at the circus, with Bob keeping all three rings going. Whether Admiral-of-the-Fleet, or Ward Heeler of District " N " , Bob will show the same zest and whole-heartedness that he has displayed in everything he has undertaken. ARLINGTON, MASSACHUSETTS Dick hailed from the traditional home of ships and sailors, and although his New England background wasn ' t evident in his speech, one just had to mention the Hub in his presence and he would leave no doubt in anyone ' s mind as to where he was from. Rom al- ways kept his slide rule free and ready for running though he had little trouble with academics. Thus he had plenty of time to devote to other activities which in- cluded the various intramural teams of company sports and the ever present fascination of weekend dragging. Never one to display disinterest in the routing of chow in the messhall, Dick will be a leader in the wardroom. Always ready to do his port and do it well, Dick will be a good shipmate, a good friend, and a credit to the service he represents. David §i. §li€c STATE COLLEGE, PENNSYLVANIA After a summer spent on a Great Lakes ore boat in what he fondly referred to as the " real navy, " Reg realized that his ambition was for the life of the sea, and left his Western Pennsylvania home to come to the Naval Academy. Although he came straight from high school, his interest and determination in his work, and his skill with the " guessing wand " — slip-stick, that is— re- sulted in his starring in academics. Despite his ardent love for his sack during the day, he devoted his after- noons to sports and his weekends to dragging and the dark room. Soccer held Reg ' s greatest interest, and, after working his way past the plebe and JV teams, he gained himself a place on the varsity and an N-star. We wish him the best of luck in his career. 230 " s to the nhigh Olltl is-re- oideni i alter, lid tlie I OIlJ, »s, he 3f.

It seemed to reveal the disdain for strict conventionality and undesirable regulations that was one of his most outstanding characteristics. Before attending the Aca- demy, Bill attended Bullis Prep, where he starred on one of the most successful football teams in that school ' s history. He was chosen on the All-Prep team in Wash- ington in 1944 and played an outstanding game in the All-High-All-Prep contest of that year. For three years he has been a star of our exceptional J.V. football team, and has won his numerals in J.V. lacrosse. He achieved some success in avoiding books; little in avoiding OOW ' s.

SiBqcwht twn BALTIMORE, MARYLAND Out of the blue in his war-converted PBM came Frithiof, the terror of the skyways, with his slipstick belching thunder and the props singing Navy Blue and Gold. After working at the Martin plant in Baltimore, Sag joined Uncle Sam ' s Navy to fly one of his own planes. Annapolis bound, we found him at the Academy as one of the few midshipmates who didn ' t find it cold in Mary- land. Not only a member. Sag managed and coached the radiator squad. This gave him a chance to pursue his other interests . . . good books, good music, and bull sessions with his many friends. Sag stepped over the academics at the Academy with maximum success and minimum effort. Whatever shape or form the PBM ' s of the future take, they are sure to have him at the controls. U)ithMMw H. Sampie SPRING VALLEY, MINNESOTA After Macalester College, Will, a Pfc. in the Army, thought of West Point, but his better judgment led him to abandon the mud and khaki for the Blue and Gold. Taking academics and the Executive Department in stride right from the start, he evaded demerits and man- aged to stand high in the class. Not exactly an oper- ator, although seldom without a drag, he avoided drag- ging blind after his luck at this form of gambling ran out early in Second Class Year. Active in company and battalion sports, from soccer to fieldball. Will also served on the Christmas Card Committee, and contributed much to the designing and production of our card. Will plans to stay in the Navy, and hopes to get into aviation, prob- ably motivated by memories of the strenuous life aboard the Kearsarge on Second Class Cruise. I o A T T A L I O N • 231 F O R T A T T A L I O N WILMETTE, ILLINOIS Through four years at the Naval Academy, Frank, a Northwestern man of a year and a half ' s standing, re- mained very partial to the Wildcats, the Chicago Cubs, and the Tribune. Quite studious, he spent much of his time being pestered by dope seekers. The rest of his time was devoted to writing press releases and maga- zine articles dealing with Navy athletics, and manag- ing the basketball and baseball squads. His hobby was collecting sports items— anyone who wanted to see the past records of the Chicago Cubs or Bears had only to look him up. Once past the trials of Plebe Year, he added new interests to the old— his eyes had a tendency to wander from the steam books towards Baltimore. Frank is looking to a future with the public relations men of the Navy. Danaid §1. Schmidt ST. JOSEPH, MISSOURI Shortly after Harry entered the White House, another of Missouri ' s sons, Don, entered the grey halls of Navy. An ex-infantryman, he had studied mechanical engi- neering at the University of Wisconsin in the V-12. Though " Don Juan " had all the requisites for being a ladies ' man, he spent his four years as a Red Mike, liv- ing by the motto " Women are a snare and a delu- sion—. " Standing well above the two hundred mark aca- demically, he played company basketball, football, vol- leyball, and Softball, and acquired his nickname, " Bull, " as a well-deserved honor for his story-telling ability. Although he wasn ' t very large in stature, in character, friendliness, and common sense, he assumed the pro- portions of a giant, and should be a success, whatever he does. U iiliam C. S€Bndtin ALEXANDER CITY, ALABAMA Despite two years of the military life at Marion— which should have been warning enough—, Sandy deserted Alabama, and came to Navy after majoring in me- chanical engineering as a Phi Delta Theta at Auburn, and six months in the Army Air Corps. Not only was Sandy a good golfer, he was also an outstanding boxer, the winner of a Brigade Boxing Championship, and the winner of a victory for the Navy team over a kaydetsing during Amphibious Maneuvers. His taste in women varied from the small and pert to the tali and stately, but was always good. Aside from dragging, he spent much of his time listening to classical music and drafting plans for the ideal plantation estate. Whatever his ambitions may be, Sandy ' s warm friendliness and ability to get along in any crowd will aid him in achieving them. 232 I f ' 3franh € . ShcrtntMwa ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO The " General, " a sound authority on the middle and southwest, as well as the possessor of a great wealth of general knowledge, enjoyed three main hobbies here, when not fighting the Bull profs. First and foremost was sleep— his byword was " to stray far from one ' s bed is an unnecessary evil. " Far from lazy, however, he pursued his other hobbies, correspondence and photography, tirelessly, and with great success, as was witnessed by the magnitude of his mail and the steady stream of buddies with picture problems. He proved his athletic ability and leadership by organizing and leading cham- pionship cross country and steeplechase teams. During his twenty months in the Fleet, Frank developed a fond- ness for the Amphibious Corps, and will probably spend his future in the LC-LS fleet. Qet rge £. Sifi RENO, NEVADA The " biggest little city " has provided one of the biggest little midshipmen in the person of Georgie. His electrical engineering studies at the Universities of Nevada and California, coupled with his naturally alert mind, have placed him high in the class. Youngster Year he rose from his battalion track team to win the broad jump in his first varsity competition, and ever after he was one of the top men in his event. His keen sense of humor and the prodigious quantities of salami with which he kept us constantly supplied added greatly to our enjoyment of Academy life. Direct, likeable, and pos- sessor of a disarming chuckle, George has made a host of friends in all classes. Personality, ambition, and un- usual capability make him a man of whom the Navy will be proud. Charics . Smith TYLER, TEXAS The Navigation Department tried, but never convinced Pecos that Polaris wasn ' t directly over Amarillo, and that the Southern Cross couldn ' t be seen straight up from Brownsville. Texas, Utopia, the universe— all were syn- onymous to him, until the Navy convinced him that it had something to offer, too. Liking what he saw, Smitty decided, after eighteen months, to make a career of it. One day Plebe Summer, his wife introduced h im to la- crosse, and he ' s been at it ever since, stick in hand the year around. Despite his customary post-exam howls about bilging, Pecos was easy to get along with, and his complaints about academics were always taken with a grain of salt. Although still a faithful Texan, Smitty has acquired the Blue and Gold— sincere in his chosen pro- fession, he will do the job. • F O A T T A L I O N 233 w o A T T 4 L I O N Robert £. Smith KUTZTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA Smitty joined us after fifteen months in the Army, where he had attended Penn State and N. Y. U., as well as infantry duty. Here he kept up his varied interests, earn- ing numerals for plebe lacrosse, and playing company soccer and cross-country. As well as engaging in these sports, he took interest in all by reporting for the Public Relations Committee. Having sung in his high school glee club and operettas, he naturally joined the Glee Club here, and will never be forgotten as one of the cuties in the Musical Club Show " Operations Pinafive. " For relaxation from his activities, Smitty had special inter- ests ranging from good pipes to trim, light planes. He stood undecided as to what part of the service to enter, but we feel confident of his success, for with Bob it seems a tradition that he succeeds. §l9bcwi m. Smith LAKE GROVE, OREGON Smitty came right out of the hills in that June of 1945. He was just finishing a year in V-12 in Montana when his chance came, but he remained ever ready to go back to the west. A year of prep school in California and the year in V-12 in Montana gave him just the start he needed to make the academics easy going. Quiet and somewhat aloof, Smitty nevertheless made many friends with his sharp humor and friendly smile. His were the quiet sports, squash, sailing and especially skiing. Whenever there was a hop, he was always the one to enjoy it with a very fine drag. Smitty ' s easy going ways and calm, logical approach to life seem to fit in very well with his plans to be a submariner. He should have very little trouble becoming a fine officer. g fald 7. Smith CORSICANA, TEXAS It took a tour of duty in the Army and a lot of long marches to convince Jerry that the Navy was the place for him. To the dismay of his classmates, he had done a very thorough job of preparation at Texas A M, Louisiana State, and West Virginia. His time here was divided among taking long rows on the river with the varsity crew, championing the company in sports, hunt- ing the ever elusive fourth for bridge, reading the Saturday Evening Post, and diligently proving that " only fools and first classmen fall in love. " More than one of his beautiful drags has no doubt wished he hadn ' t proved it himself. When Jerry trades in his yawl for one of those new battlewagons, his love of the sea and unlimited ability will carry him far. yOUO 234 I READING, PENNSYLVANIA Carl came to us from the famous Pennsylvania Dutch country via the Navy, where he was better known as " Doc. " He reached the rate of Pharmacist ' s Mate 2 c after serving two years in the fleet, and then discarded his scalpel and sponge and quickly mended his ways with his newly acquired friends. Any free weekend you ' d not find him hanging around Annapolis; no sir, he always ran to Philly where someone of special in- terest attracted him. That ' s quite a jaunt to be making so frequently, but Carl seemed to think she was worth it. Between weekends he was more than likely carrying his heavy-set frame around the soccer field, or attempting to ace some hearty opponent on the tennis court. If sin- cerity and hard work mean anything, Carl will go a long, long way. L ' 1 C. U)itti€Mm Sioddawd ATLANTA, GEORGIA " Charlie " claimed Atlanta as his home, but we never knew it by his speech, as he was guaranteed to be absolutely free of any southern accent. Bill started his career as a wheel at high school, where he was valedic- torian and a star athlete. Here he continued wheeling with plebe and varsity baseball and numerous company sports, as well as in the Newman Club. His hobbies in- cluded tooting his trumpet, snapping pics, hunting, and fishing, thereby proving that this lad had talent in many fields, as well as good looks. The big mystery surround- ing him was how he got the word on the Miss America contest so quickly and regularly in the middle of the Atlantic on Youngster Cruise. Bill ' s term of enlistment as an aviation radioman put the bee on him, and it is in the aviation branch that he intends to continue his career. r o A T T A L I O N BUFORD, GEORGIA Jim brought his smiling face and Georgia drawl into the Navy back in 1944 when he left Buford, where he had lettered in football, basketball, and track, been a member of the Beta Club, and worked on the paper, and had attended Emory Junior College, majoring in engineering and lettering in basketball. After sixteen months in the Navy, where he had been a signalman striker, Jim came to the Academy, where he has not had much time for anything other than eating, sleeping, fighting the academic grind, and getting a little first hand dope on Texas from a Lone Star brunette. Jim will probably make the Navy a career if hunting and fish- ing don ' t keep him back in Georgia on leave someday. But keep an eye on him— he may be the next com- mandant of the Gooney-Gooney Islands. 235 F O 4 T T 4 L I O N • •Harold J. ' Ciploa, Jr. BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA From the heart of movielond, with its sunshine and beau- tiful girls, Hal migrated to the Academy by way of U. C. L. A. and U. S. C. Though he was never an expert with slide rule and steam tables, his hard work placed him well up in the class. His spare time was well oc- cupied with sports, battalion football and track pre- dominating, and his editorial work on the staff of the LOG. To round out his activities, Hal dragged a series of eastern lovelies, but was finally landed by the girl back home, to whom he plans to become permanently allied shortly after graduation. Though broadminded in most situations, Hal has had one great gripe here— the Maryland weather, which he maintained, was as differ- ent from his home ' s as day from night. RENO, NEVADA Bob is the pride and joy of that famous city of the Old West, Reno, and unquestionably one of the finest fellows ' 49 has to ofFer. In spite of previous experience with the strain of college back at the University of Ne- vada, he wasn ' t one of our " star " men, but there are few men in the halls of Bancroft with better ability to get along than smiling Bob. Although not a varsity thriller in any sport, Robert managed to keep that hand- some physique in good shape as a capable competitor in several intramural sports, including track, football, and even volleyball. And, when not developing those muscles, he could usually be found either propped up somewhere reading a book or hanging around the model shop. Jahn M. inhhawn MELROSE, MASSACHUSETTS From out of the frost bound hills of New England, un- scathed by the battle of V-12, came the other half of Tinkhom and Eaton, the E.D. kids. Although his V-12 training was adequate preparation so that Tink always kept the academic perils reduced to a minimum, the fate- ful late bell caught him time and time again. His yankee blood and many letters from the truest girl a midship- man ever had kept him warm through the long Mary- land winters. When Tink got energy enough to leave his sock and work out, he usually wound up with a billiard cue in his hand. As to the future, it may be Naval Aviation, but who knows? The unexpected has always more or less been the rule with Johnny, and whatever happens he ' ll come through with a smile. 236 « COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA You may have heard of the fiery temper and straight- forwardness of a redhead, so just add a sparkling per- sonality to those qualities and you will have the outline of this well-known southern gentleman. Probably the only person that actually has Red for a real name, he lived up to his appellation in full tradition, and his warmth and high spirits always made everyone at ease when he was present. A better-than-average student. Bob never let the books get him down. He was always ready for a good bull session anytime or a quick rubber of bridge, but his favorite pastime was sailing yawls out on the high seas of the Severn and Chesapeake. During the winter, however, he could be found on a basketball court taking advantage of his height. L ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA Choo-choo came to Navy from Georgetown Prep, where he had copped most of the scholastic honors and cleaned up eleven letters in football, soccer, swimming, and baseball. He continued this activity at Severn Tech, winning laurels in plebe swimming, JV football, and varsity water polo. Academics never bothered Harry a bit— his formula for starring involved many hours spent on the sack. Vying for first place among his in- terests were dragging and eating, with the first having a slight edge. The only time he ever missed a dragging weekend was when he had the guard. Having been up to his neck in something or other during his entire stay at the Academy, Harry hopes to go completely under in the sub service when he gets that big thick stripe. BLOOMFIELD, NEW JERSEY Throughout his four years with us, Warren ' s first inter- est has been his academics, to which he has constantly devoted himself, with gratifying results. A firm believer, however, in the well-rounded man, he has given much time to outside activities, among which were the Quarter- deck Society, the German Club, the Glee Club, Ex- tracurricular Council, varsity water polo, and company and battalion sports. Far from a Red Mike, Voss has been a successful socialite, and, requiring only " beauty and a touch of intelligence, " he has presented an end- less string of lovelies to the joys of a Navy weekend. His varied interests have provided a solid background for the career which he has planned in the Air Corps. • F O A T T A L I O N 237 F O 4 r I 4 I I O N £ngene J. Wielhi STATEN ISLAND, NEW YORK " No, I am not o stomp collector. I am a Naval cover collector. " Again and again Gene went through this routine, explaining the differences between stamp and cover collecting. Having arrived at the Academy after a year as a signalman. Gene had no adjustment prob- lems. He soon became " Wendell " to all, because of the phonetic similarity of his name with that of the late presidential aspirant. With no interest whatsoever for women, Wendell applied this well-saved time to read- ing, his covers, or at times, even to study, with the re- sult that he was always a source of information on any subject. Facts and figures were the fundamentals, and he always had them. Eugene will always be remembered for his exactness, and his ability to make any party livelier with his powerful vocal potentialities. £. Date ti)itm9ih ENID, OKALHOMA From the wind swept plains of Oklahoma, Dale brought his personable good humor to Navy Tech. Although just out of high school, academics here didn ' t cause him to take any great strain and most of his evenings were occupied with writing letters to the OAO back home in Oklahoma. OAO in his case really meant One and Only, as was evidenced by the fact that he spent most of his weekends on the sack, sleeping or thinking of the day he would graduate and be married. For recrea- tion big Dale took naturally to such sports as crew, basketball, and football, giving basketball the majority of his time. Not certain as yet just which branch of the Navy he would like the best. Dale will be welcomed gladly by all, whatever his choice. Jnhn §1. Weather FAYETTE, MISSOURI While at Central College, John exhausted most of Fayette ' s opportunities, for, although an active partici- pant in student government, he preferred the literary field, being included in the 1944-45 edition of " Whose Who in American Colleges and Universities " for his work in editing the " Central Collegian. " Turning to greener pastures, John came to Navy, where he is probably best remembered as the Max Schuleman of USNA, in honor of his writing for the LOG. He also served on the Hop Committee, arranging our Ring Dance, wrote in- numerable humorous skits and turned in creditable per- formances on the track. Wherever we may wander in the Fleet, we ' ll be apt to find John praising Benchley, his idol, admiring a handy blonde, or inhaling a beer. Whatever pursuit you may find him, he ' ll be making a success of it. New and ' tfo«bl 011(1 (lis i«l 4 oftlie lio e est pli wo(k, ' go»e tanw ' gingl iWl 238 4 i §lalph £. U ilMan. Jr. CHEVY CHASE, MARYLAND New London had two claims to fame— the sub school and Rollo. A Navy junior, he found Plebe Summer no trouble offer Admiral Farrogut Academy, Camp Peary, and NAPS. His fondness for the sea was embodied in his interest in sailing, and when he wasn ' t out on the dinghy float, he could usually be found working on one of the yawls. There was one sailing whaleboat drill, however, that won ' t be forgotten for a while. His great- est pleasures in life came at liberty call and " Knock off work, " but cruises rewarded him with the material they gave him for the sea stories he would spin about Guan- tonamo or Weymouth. Around here, he was a drag- ging fool. When the hop schedule came out, he would start planning his campaign for the coming season. COLUMBUS, OHIO A philosopher, well known for his proverbs, apropos or no, a Utopian, and an idealist are three terms that characterize Wolf well, but even though he was a strong proponent of how things should be, he never let his ideas replace realities. Although Plebe Steam was al- most his downfall. Wolf gained momentum so that he became a contender for stars in that subject, and ac- cumulated gravy in others. Plebe Year he tried wres- tling, but in later years he usually stayed with the radiator, save for an occasional table tennis meet. Wolf was always ready to drag blind, and, although he had his ups and downs, his philosophic attitude of " like streetcars, there ' s another along in ten minutes " kept him from entangling alliances with any one femme. TAMPA, FLORIDA George came to the Academy from the orange groves of Florida and took great pride in praising his native state. A very good student, " Jeep " found that aca- demics required very little strain. A constant participant in bull sessions, George bubbled over, whether the topic was sports, women, or chow. Although very active in sports in high school, a knee injury received during Plebe Year hindered his endeavors in that vein. His inability to take part did not dampen his love for good sports events and his smiling face was seldom absent from one. His friendliness and winning personality, coupled with his southern drawl, have won him many friends among his classmates. His future is a promise of happiness and good luck. o A T T 4 L I O N • 239 F O A T T A L I O N • tVilliam tV. Upright MURPHYSBORO, ILLINOIS Bill came to us from the rolling hills of southern Illinois via the mechanized cavalry. " The Colonel " wasn ' t really lazy but the sack was far from the least of his desires. Finding the academic going rough in his Plebe Year, he staged a determined rally and made good in succeed- ing years. Engineering subjects were his delight while he found Bull o constant nemesis. His pleasing person- ality made him a favorite with the ladies as well as classmates, and although he was not a dragging fiend, he could be found occasionally escorting pretty young damsels on the weekends. Possessing athletic ability as well as a fine monotone singing voice, he helped make things pleasant wherever he went. His amiable ways, natural ability, and determination will assure him a suc- cessful career. I 240 I( Ores, ' ,lie :eeii. t while person- OS 1 fend, yoMg )ility OS Uole woys, osiic- » ?r. V .4 X F I F T A T T A L I O N MOUNT HOLLY, NEW JERSEY To hear him talk you would think Herm is the ladies ' man, but actually he is just the opposite. During his stay here at Severn Tech, Herman was an active member of Ray Swortz ' s gang— the muscular boys who practice the scissors and half-nelson each night during the Winter in the loft of MacDonough Hall. When he wasn ' t wres- tling, he spent most of his time figuring out ways to beat the system and struggling with academics. The rest of the time he lifted weights, read physical culture maga- zines, and listened to James Melton. " Bumps ' " musical tastes were not confined to the classical though; just give him the " Jersey Bounce " and watch him go. And wherever he does go, he ' ll always add some spark to the party. Mtlen W. mat€h TYLER, TEXAS Curious to see how the other half lives, this tall, blonde, suave emissary from America ' s Lone Star Republic mi- grated to Navy Tech, leaving behind the " most beau- tiful women in the world. " Al quickly made many friends throughout the Brigade. He was ever-present at the traditional evening round of bridge or the inevitable post-football game rendezvous, and his dry wit and subtle humor, coupled with the polish of the gentle- man, have won for him the respect of all who know him. With the logical mind of the intellectual, he was never troubled by academic difficulties. Al hopes to earn his wings, and if we can judge by past perform- ance, we are sure that success, good will, and a multi- tude of friends will follow his steps through the years. emite fr. M€h4Bc GREAT NECK, NEW YORK Emile entered the Academy after spending a year at Yale, where he had been a swimmer and a varsity track man. His good nature and ever-ready smile gained him many friends from the start, and later helped him win his OAO, with whom he could be seen almost every weekend. Ame spent his afternoons working out with either the varsity football squad or the track team, where he was a good dash man, but reached his greatest heights as a pole vaulter. As chairman of our Class Ring Committee and business manager of the Christmas Card Committee, he was deserving of much of the credit for the efficient management of the production of our class rings and Christmas cards. No matter where he goes, Ame will always do well. 242 i Wiitiam J. maiha CHILLICOTHE, OHIO Bill was born and reared in the Province of Quebec, thus becoming, to the best of our knowledge, the first midshipman to have had Canadian citizenship. After high school in Shawinigan Falls, he attended Stevens Tech for two years, where he became a BOFl. He reached the shores of the Severn via a fleet appointment, hav- ing served for two and one-half years in the Navy as on AET 3 c. Academically he lacked very little, and trees and bushes were almost unknown to the Canadian Crusher. Bill ' s athletic interests were centered on three things— the sabre, soccer, and his sack. He did O.K. in all three— probably from having gained invaluable ex- perience as a bushwacker in his younger days. You can always count on Bako for one more story, and he laughs harder at jokes than any two men. CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA Brock come to Navy well prepared by a year at the University of North Carolina. He always had time to write letters or loaf during study hours, and frequently didn ' t study for a class till it was over. Sports were not his star subjects, so he preferred spending his time in such activities as the Mechanical Engineering Club, the Math Club, and the Spanish Club. In the Foreign Lan- guages Club he got the sack as treasurer and was con- tinually running after one of the officer representa- tives to get some check or statement signed. After we got our radios, he enjoyed the opera and the Phil- harmonic. His even temper and good nature made him well liked by his associates, and wherever he goes, he should have smooth sailing. I LOUISBURG, NORTH CAROLINA At an early age, Joe decided to follow in his brother ' s footsteps by making the Academy his alma mater. In Mills High School, he had made a name for himself as president of his class and in journalistic and athletic lines. After high school, Joe majored in chemical engi- neering at North Carolina State College, and became one of the stellar members of Pi Kappa Alpha. Through- out he was developing that game of golf that interested us so much here, for he early became one of the main- stays of Navy ' s golf team, and wore the coveted N on his sweater from Plebe Year on. J- intends to make the Navy his career and join his brother in the air corps. His southern accent, contagious laugh, and vitality have fascinated us all. Admiral Barrow? Sure, we knew him when he was a midshipman flying N3N ' s. r I r T A T T A L I O N 243 F I r T A T T A L I O N OWENSBORO, KENTUCKY This son of the Blue Grass Country made his way to us after a stretch in the Army as an aviation cadet, college at Montana State, St. Louis University, and Tulane, and a tour at NAPS. His likable nature and willingness to help anyone, regardless of their troubles, made his room a mecca for the less sovoir members of our clan. A natural at basketball, Harry was the mainstay of our championship team, in addition to giving fieldball and soccer a nod. Not to be outdone in other fields, he was always ready for a dragging weekend. Never one to let our four year fight disturb him in the least, Harry, with his mastery of any task he tackled, has won the admiration of all who have made his acquaintance. £ rtinq €). § arsncss ALEXANDRIA, MINNESOTA Red took life quite seriously, and always got as much out of it as possible. Aside from his favorite diversion, dragging, he concentrated on academics, but the Red Dog also found time to play the sax in the Pit Orchestra, the 49ers Dance Band, and the Musical Club Shows. With his natural athletic ability, drive, and stamina, he has been a consistent standout on the company soccer and basketball teams. These activities, however, didn ' t make up to him for the fact that he has been away from home ever since enlisting in the Navy, and probably he will never be happy until he settles down in a home of his own. Red has the sense of humor, determination, and sincerity to succeed in anything, and we wish him the success he deserves. ChtMwtcs J. auwnan, Jr. PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA This son of the Quaker City buzzed into Annapolis as a salty airdale with a tour of duty in the ETO behind him. Being by nature a prankster, C.J. became well known long before Plebe Summer was over. During fall and spring, Charlie came into his own on the gridiron as a fullback who really loved the game, and during the Dark Ages he could be found taking a few pointers in boxing from our famed Spike Webb. Charlie always claimed that those blonde locks made him irresistible to the fairer sex, a fact we can hardly doubt because he was always dragging, and was an inevitable member of the Flying Squadron. He leaves us now to return to the Naval Air Corps, but we will always remember him with his ever present smile and love of a good laugh. 1 244 PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA Little Freddie came to Navy with a head full of athletics and a huge injection of Blue and Gold. He found that his size didn ' t permit him to take such an active part in sports as he would have liked and as he had done in high school and on the sandlots of the Smokey City, so he chose the next best thing and, when not hounded with LUCKY BAG work, wrote on the sports staff of the LOG. Blue and Gold first meant the University of Pitts- burgh, where he studied electrical engineering for a year, but it reached new and greater heights when he got the Navy bug. His pet peeve was studying and he loved his sack, but he had a knock for getting things done when he really wanted to do them. Some day, somehow, we ' ll hear from Fred— maybe in the Navy or maybe even in politics! SYRACUSE, NEW YORK Base came to us after one year at Syracuse University where he played and his father coached football. Big Base will always be remembered to Navy men, and ail football fans, for his outstanding quarterbacking in our 1946 game with Army. He has continued to live up to that excellent record as an N winner in baseball, with pitching his specialty. Base has been at sports a long time, having played football, baseball, and basketball at Fayetteville High and Staunton Military Academy. Not content with this alone, he was also a student council member, and in college took pride in his Phi Gamma Delta membership. Not so reg as the Exec Department would have liked, he served time for vari- ous offenses, and joined the wearers of the " Black N " on Youngster Cruise. F I F T A T T A F I O N JEWELL, KANSAS Jim became a midshipman as an honor graduate of Wentworth Military Academy, and his academic achieve- ments here have been in keeping with this distinction. Who can forget the discomfiture of the engineering chiefs who sought to " put the middies in their place, " and picked Bimbo as the man to quiz? He was very ac- tive in athletics, particularly football and track, working his way up from JV to varsity football, and lettering in varsity track, where his specialty was the shot-put. Bimbo ' s home state was Kansas, whence the Jewell County " gouge " appeared weekly, and his early life on the farm develop ed his resourcefulness and friend- liness to a high degree. Although he has fine qualifica- tions for a Naval Officer, the call of the country has always made the choice of a Navy life debatable for him. 245 F I F T A T T A L I O N • NEW YORK, NEW YORK Bernie really got around before joining us to fight the battle of slide rules, steam labs, math books, and O.D. ' s. He began life in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and so- journed in the Big City long enough to attend Regis High and enlist in the Navy. As a gunner ' s mate first class on LST 336, he found more than his share of excitement in the North African, Sicilian, and Italian campaigns. A fleet appointment sent him to us via NAPS at Bainbridge. Bernie liked his athletics, and con- centrated mostly on baseball and football. He could always be found in the center of any fun-seeking bunch, especially in foreign ports, v here his escapades were many. His cheery manner, ever-ready smile, and friend- ship will not soon be forgotten. ntatihe v (HI. anwBcr KNOX, INDIANA Mike came to the Academy by a devious path, involving short stays at Purdue, Kentucky, and Cornell Universi- ties, plus service in the cavalry and as a cadet in the A.A.F. His plans for the future include marriage soon after graduation and a career in the Navy Air Corps. Mike ' s first taste of sailing came Plebe Summer, and he developed an insatiable appetite for it. Every fall and spring he spent most of his time in one of the yawls, either racing or " just sailing around. " In his spare mo- ments he also competed in company gym, fieldball, and volleyball. A Mason, Mike was a charter member of the Mechanical Engineering Club, and a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. EL DORADO, ARKANSAS John made his way to Severn ' s shores by way of River- side Military Academy, the University of the South, and a stretch as a Naval Aviation Cadet. His knack for being the life of the party, regardless of where he was, has won him a host of friends. He managed to give the academics a little time, favoring the latest best seller instead. With his heavy build and his desire to give and take, he was a natural for the rough and tumble sports such as lacrosse, football, soccer, pushball, and field- ball. At times, Johnny seemed to be a magnet for D.O ' s. Although an ardent admirer of the fairer sex, we have yet to see any young lady lead him too far astray. We will always remember his ability to find something humorous about almost any situation. oolite. ik!-5e« loBjIl ( COJlOt ' wked!

This Pennsylvania kid was born with an especially good nature, evidenced in our four years here at Bagdad-on- the-Severn by the fact that he always managed to laugh at our hardships. Guns always chose one of the contact sports and invariably made a fine showing— whenever the going got a little rough it was mighty nice to see the Gunner on our team. We could not forget, even if we tried, that salty cap, the eternal smile, and his daily joke which made our life a little more bear- able. Ed was always a fanatic on flying and had al- ready acquired his private pilot ' s license when he joined us. He hopes to make the Naval Air Corps his career, seeking to show his partiality to sleep and good food. HOUSTON, TEXAS Bruce came to Navy and quietly took his place in our ranks without joining in the melee, pursuing the com- mon goal which to attain we all had to leave astern many shoals. As a true Texan, he always wore a smile but lived in an independent spirit. The military side of life here came much easier than did the academic side for Bruce, for he could formulate his own ideas better than remember those of someone else. Most of us found a lot of enjoyment on the beaches, but, like a real sailor, he could find true contentment only with the salt air blowing in his face. Trying to stick the other guy with his infernal epee occupied many of his winter evenings and also prevented him from putting on too much of that old flab. WINSTON-SALEM, NORTH CAROLINA Everything from model planes to the latest jet fighter looked so good to Gerry that he was definitely set on a career in Naval Aviation. After graduating from high school with a track letter, he earned letters in cross country and track at North Carolina State, where he studied aeronautical engineering for three terms. There he was chosen for the Lambda Chi and Theta Tau fra- ternities and the student council. He earned plebe nu- merals in track, gymnastics, and cross country, and later held down harrier running and managerial spots. Our sailing drills captured him to such an extent that he worked for and won both his handler and yawl com- mand qualifications Youngster Summer, serving as Rear Commodore of the Boat Club First Class Year. • F I F T A T T A F I O N 247 • F I F T A T T A L I O N SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA Out of the wild blue yonder comes our next subject, with a year and a half of service as an aviation cadet behind him. A native of Louisiana, Dee attended La. Tech, where he majored in civil engineering and spent most of his time at the Kappa Sig house. We attributed part of his success to previous college experi- ence, but the greater share to his happy-go-lucky out- look. Attired in an Army B-robe and a pair of tan loafers. Dee was a common sight clip-ciopping between rooms during evening study hour. A confirmed member of the radiator squad, our rebel friend nevertheless ven- tured out of his room for company sports. Sooner or later most of us will run into Dee again, and when we see his non-reg cap, we will know that there is plenty of fun dead ahead. CLARK ' S GREEN, PENNSYLVANIA Bill was the boy wonder of ' 49 who come to Navy di- rectly from high school and literally ran us ragged by standing so high in his studies. A Navy Junior who finally settled down near the coal fields of Scranton, he had his mind set on the line Navy and with his ability and determination he should go far. All his honors in high school and at the Academy never took his mind off the opposite sex, however, nor did it spoil his enormous appetite. Though fond of golf, tennis, and soccer. Bill devoted his long, lanky body to fencing, winning his letter and an Intercollegiate Championship, as well as being team captain First Class Year. Of all his awards the insignia of which he was proudest, though, was that of a Navy Jr. Qerald £. uwh ROCKWELL CITY, IOWA When a stentorian " Why don ' t you girls rent a room? " was heard above the roar in the wardroom mess, every- one knew that Burk the peacemaker was at work, for Jerry had an aversion to the fruitless arguments that midshipmen were prone to engage in. His unhappy " I wish I were bock in Drooling-on-the-Lapel, Iowa, where the skies are not cloudy all day " was a sign that his daily letter from the girl back home was slow in ar- riving. He never wavered from the straight and narrow path of an OAO man! Jerry spent a year as an aviation ordnanceman, where he spent his spare time repairing and using an assortment of saxophones and clarinets, rather than machine guns and torpedos, before coming to Navy. 41 248 amid O. Campbell BAYONNE, NEW JERSEY Four months after Doc had finished his work at Stevens Tech in the V-12, he found himself at the bottom again enjoying a Plebe Year in the old Fourth. As well as an ability to take academics with no strain, D. O. brought with him on interest in singing which he put to good use as a member of the choir and an interest in shooting which he used with the varsity rifle team. Doc was also a member of the batt lacrosse team, and his experience from batt swimming proved rather useful during am- phibs when he was washed overboard from an LCM. Never content with the routine of humdrum existence, Dave will seek something out of the ordinary after graduation, perhaps aviation or subs. mHb NEWTON, MASSACHUSETTS Bruce was one of Newton ' s contributions to Navy, and he held up his hometown academic standards by star- ring. " Ring ' s " accomplishments here were varied. He served as Secretary of the Stamp Club for two years, as LUCKY BAG representative for the company, and on various inconsequential football, soccer, pushball, and fieldball teams. Noteworthy among Nuclear ' s records are the innumerable Wardroom Mess tables whose undersides bear his initials. Youngster cruise found Ring in Colon, Panama, purchasing the ring that was to be the memorable source of his nickname. Broad shoulders were an attribute that aided Ring to bear the burdens of Academy life, as well as the pleasures of the stars and bars he earned. To Bruce we owed a vote of thanks for the humor his doings brought to break up the routine. ndrc9V § . Carr CLARKSDALE, MISSISSIPPI Forsaking the land of wandering porticoes, mint juleps, and gorgeous young ladies, Andy braved the Yankee cold to come to Navy. Although he was forewarned, he was not exactly prepared for what he found and soon he and the " system " had a clash, but, as usual. Navy soon brought him in line. With the end of Plebe Summer the " Bo " (so named for a famous Senator) soon hit his stride. He was a year-round athlete with football, wres- tling, and golf all claiming a share of his time, but his main calling and interest was dragging each weekend. Andy ' s humor has helped to brighten our stay here and he leaves the Academy well known by his class- mates as a confident, proficient man with a bright smile and a friendly word for everyone. F I F T A T T A L I O N 249 F I F T A T T A F I O N • PULLMAN, WASHINGTON Though he has lived there most all of his life, Ed was not destined for a Pullman birth. He was born in Mos- cow—Idaho, that is— but moved to Pullman (by coach) at the tender age of ten days, where his presence in- creased the population of that fair city a considerable percentage. While with the Navy he attended Gonzaga University and the University of New Mexico, where he became a Sigma Chi. With camera in hand and chin patched after a dragging shave, he always enjoyed the weekends at Navy, each with its Mary Hayworth twist. Number two on his list of favorite pastimes were his pugilistic pursuits in McDonough Hall with his punching bag opponent. Ed was never one to be excited by the do-it-on-the-run routine of Academy life, and his quiet efficiency and dogged persistence will always bring him out on top. NEW EAGLE, PENNSYLVANIA " Chick " came to us as one of the nicest camouflage jobs the Navy has ever seen, for hiding behind all that muscle and brawn was one of the keenest minds in the class. It didn ' t take long for the proper authorities to recognize this fellow ' s potentialities, and soon after enlisting in the Navy, he was made a Fleet appointee. Al has shown us his versatility as an athlete by playing JV, batt, and touch football, softball, and by becoming the pride of his company after giving a K-det an injec- tion of Blue and Gold leather in a boxing smoker on Amphibs. His fighting spirit and quickness at diagnosing the opponent ' s next move would make him a great ad- dition to the Fleet, but Chick ' s 10 20 eyes have made other plans. Whatever field he turns to, we know that Chick will plunge to the top. Jnhn § . Cartwm ' W ' iqhi ELLWOOD CITY, PENNSYLVANIA Four years ago the Dartmouth Indians decided to send one of their toughest scouts into Techumseh ' s camp, and, amidst the sighing of feminine hearts. Jack came and quickly proved the superiority of his tribe. After letter- ing in football and basketball and winning scholastic awards in high school, Jock went north for a year, but decided southern pastures looked greener, and so an- swered Buck Walsh ' s prayer. In the years to come. Jack can show his grandchildren that big N with the slanted oar, and tell them how he stroked the Navy crew to victory over the toughest competition in the land at Poughkeepsie. You have made many friends here, Jock, and in the future, when the going gets tough, we ' ll depend on you to take up the stroke again, and come out on top, as you have in the past. 250 1 SALEM, OHIO Sam, who had more hair on his back than on his head, was the possessor of a very sly and disarming smile. He started every new year with the statement " Well, this year is going to be different " — and he always ended up doing the same things, starring, dragging, and being run by all his tablemates. Having been a rat at VMI for a year and having spent three more at Case School of Applied Science, majoring in electrical engineering and (PKY. Sam came to the Academy very well equipped to battle with the academics. His activities in the field of sports included boxing during Plebe Summer and Youngster Cruise, and lacrosse, bowling, and batt foot- ball. Sam had a very idealistic outlook and was one who practiced the Golden Rule. SOUTH GATE, CALIFORNIA A native of sunny South Gate, California, Ray was an unusual person in that he didn ' t have to mention the weather when discussing his home state. Instead he could talk about Hollywood and the movie personali- ties with whom he has worked. After two years in the Navy V-5 and V-12 programs, Ray entered the Acad- emy. Although his chief interest lay in photographing everything from drags to sports contests for the LOG, LUCKY BAG and Trident Calendar, he did not neglect other forms of activity. He loved yawl sailing and was also a member of the dinghy team. His flare for social entertainments found expression in the many company parties he promoted. With Naval Aviation as his goal, Ray is assured success by his magnetic personality and his adaptability. Ml€»uis Q. ChMMwthilL Jr. EXETER, NEW HAMPSHIRE After graduation from Phillips Exeter Academy, Louie hit the V-12 program for all it was worth for four semesters at Middlebury College, acquiring not only a thorough knowledge of Navy subjects, but also meeting the girl who would become Mrs. Churchill come June, 1949. Having played a sterling hot corner on the Middlebury baseball team, Lou brought his ability to the plebe team. Youngster Year saw him giving up base- ball for the gentleman ' s game of golf, and, although he improved steadily, the woods and water holes claimed their share of his golf balls. Academics proved no strain for our silent friend, and he starred easily. In ' 49 ' s grad- uation, the Fleet and Patsy are getting a good man, and Ens. Lou is getting what he has been working for the past four years. • F I F T A T T A 1 I O N 251 »b rl S. CltMwh SALISBURY, MARYLAND Coming from Maryland ' s Eastern Shore, Bob found it galling Plebe Year to recite, " How cold it is in Mary- land, " for, as far as he was concerned, a warm sun always shines down on his home state. Because of his experience at college and as an Aviation Cadet and his happy, easy-going manner, he was never worried by either academics or the vicissitudes of Academy life. His chief interests included soccer, his O.A.O., and music —he had a mean shower room tenor with which he often serenaded us. His first interest, however, is flying. He plans to follow in the footsteps of his brother who graduated from the Academy in the Class of ' 38 and later won his Navy wings. With his ability and cheerful personality. Bob is sure to fulfill our hopes and his for a successful and happy future. F I F T A T T A L I O N CHEVY CHASE, MARYLAND The Navy was more than a future for " Reddy " Cobb, Maryland ' s contribution to the Navy Junior Club; it was also his past and life-blood. He attacked all comments about his three names with tales of the exploits of the destroyers which carried the names Warrington and Crane. After prep school at Severn and two terms at Georgetown, Red came into the Academy well up on his math and sciences, so he found little trouble in winning his stars. At Severn he played tennis, football, and lacrosse, but here he concentrated on the latter, spending the better part of the year chasing a ball with the rest of the " ham ' n ' eggers. " The redhead ' s greatest accomplishment was giving up smoking, after years as our number one bummer. avid G ' Ciueii LAWRENCE, L. I., NEW YORK The tall, blonde, quiet " Clu " has probably spent the greatest part of his life tacking in and out of half the bays and inlets in the country pursuing his number one interest, sailing. Dave first proved his prowess as a sailor when he captured a national sailing title while still in his teens. Here at the Academy, he became captain of the sailing team during his Second Class Year, and each spring and fall found him crammed into a " dink " win- ning races for the Blue and Gold, while the winters were token up with the varsity rifle team. In addition to his sailing firsts, he had the honor of being the first " and only " midshipman to " hit the drink " during Second Class Carrier Cruise. Dave is the typical reserved individual who accomplishes his job in a thorough manner with- out fanfare. ii «i II • ' 252 BLOUNTVILLE, TENNESSEE There were four things that " Rapid Robert " held dear— his home in East Tennessee, gracious living, beautiful music, and brunettes. Bob fought the academics to a draw and even starred in Dago. It was a pleasure to look at the pictures of beautiful girls on his locker, and, If requested, he would always fix up his friends with a drag. His athletic activities were limited to punching the bag or lifting weights in MacDonough Hall, for his main interest was Dago, and on the cruises he tried, with varying successes, to learn the languages of the countries visited. Since he was a third generation Navy Junior, Bob always intended to make the Navy a ca- reer. He will be content to stay on surface vessels and earn his promotions the hard way. F I F T -■ - Sianictf . CoMMntM WICHITA, KANSAS Though born in Oklahoma, Katie was deported to Kansas at a tender age. At Wichita and Washburn Universities he received excellent tr aining for the rigors of Academy life, one aspect of that training being the subject of his latest essay, " How to Star Without Study- ing. " The ease with which he overcame the academic schedule left him plenty of time to engage in more pleasant activities among which were dragging numer- ous queens and playing a mean game of bridge. Joules unexpended in steam lab were used in company soccer, basketball, and football, and his prowess in those fields could be proved by the many numerals on his B-robe. An effervescent spirit of congeniality com- bined with a sense of responsibility, makes him a fine friend and a good prospect for the Fleet. Sidney S. Com: INDEPENDENCE, KANSAS The Navy and Sid first became acquainted when he entered the Naval Aviation flight training program, and, although he came to the Academy before he won those wings, he still extolled the merits of that branch of the service, and planned to continue in the Air Corps. Al- though his first love was always flying, Sid spent most of his weekends dragging, though as yet no girl has become his O.A.O. A solid, cheerful person, he plugged away at every given job, no matter how distasteful it might have been to him, and did his best, which was always more than sufficient. Sid will long be remembered by all those who knew him, not only for his resourceful- ness and friendly personality, but because to him friendship was something much higher than just a fair weather association. A T T A F I O N 253 F I F T A T T A F I O N • NORWOOD, MASSACHUSETTS ' Navy Ted " was just about the saltiest mid ' n who ever hit the Brigade. It is still not generally realized that " Time Afloat " put in twenty months of " sea duty " aboard the " U.S.S. Hahvud " V-12 unit and his local Sea Scout ship. Curt ' s favorite sport was football, in which he won his N— at Norwood High, and he has played on the JV, batt, and company teams here. One of the " lace Curtin " Irish, T. A. was always ready to bait rebels or champion the " land of the bean and the cod " and the " auld sod. " Newman Club presi- dent, he was appropriately enough elected on St. Pat- rick ' s Day. Next to the Navy, T. A. ' s greatest interest was collecting— not only did he save stamps, he saved everything— right on down to the skivvy shirts and steam- ing shoes for which he was justly famous. OXFORD, NORTH CAROLINA Coming to us by way of the Navy and Duke University, Dan brought many pleasant moments to ail of us who knew him with his good nature and his inimitable moun- tain tunes! Playing piebe and varsity baseball and varsity sub squad, Dan ' s fighting spirit was manifested by his rebel yells. Extending reciprocity into the class- room, he was always willing to enlighten his professors on the art of tobacco cultivation and manufacture. A man of firm convictions, he has long advocated a good five-cent cigar as a cure to all midshipman troubles. Not adverse to a small celebration from time to time, he placed great faith in Mountain Dew as a cure for any- thing from baldness to fallen arches. Dan will long be remembered as a guy who loves life, laughter, and comradeship. £ dqfBW M. Cruise, Jr. CORONADO, CALIFORNIA Muscles, brains, and amiability were combined in Batt to produce a thoroughly likeable person. A Navy jun- ior of high standing, he attended schools in Puerto Rico, California, and New Mexico before entering Navy. Batt inherited his nickname and many of his good quali- ties from his father, who was also a credit to the in- stitution. He administered and received considerable punishment in football, boxing, and lacrosse, and car- ried home his share of laurels in the aforementioned sports. Possessed of an insurpassable sense of humor and a great force of character, he had great ability to make friends and influence people. In all he had a great deal of common sense and ability to see the real problems at hand. Success will be yours, Batt. i 254 . m. 1 Jo« M. UkMon MINERAL WELLS, MISSISSIPPI After a twenty-five month vacation in thie Fleet, the pride and joy of the Mississippi Delta decided to forsake King Cotton for a Naval career. It was not long before Joe became one of our favorite targets for running because of his excitable nature. His year at " Ole Miss " produced many fond memories of times gone by at the ATO house. The athletic look on life seems to hove made no impression whatsoever on Jose, even though he succumbed to crew during Plebe Summer. Being one of those who have worked on the LUCKY BAG, Joe rates a " Well Done " for his labors on the staff. If one was ever in doubt as to social etiquette and the like, Jose was their man. We are not likely to forget his wife ' s utter disapproval of his precious classical record albums. n iliiam £, DtMhc, Jr. CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA Bill arrived at Navy after a year at the University of Virginia, but found the academics here all that he had expected and probably even a little tougher. He liked the radiator squad best, but somehow managed to win his numerals on one of the company cross country teams. Plebe Year he joined the Glee Club and Or- chestra, and Youngster Year the Mechanical Engineer- ing Club and Spanish Club, as well as having the sock of company LOG representative that year, too. Bill was the explorer type when it came to the women, and though serious, industrious, and regulation, he could always have a good time. He expected the plebes to fall in line, but never required more of any of them than he was willing to do himself. yawncs £. urhtEwn, Jr. ANCHORAGE, KENTUCKY With a basketball in one hand and a mint julep in the other, Jim dribbled his way into the Naval Academy from the hills of old Kentucky. Although an easy year as a Phi Delt at the University of Kentucky hardly pre- pared him for the many restrictions of Navy life, it did provide good experience in basketball that enabled him to rise to the varsity Youngster Year. That season he won an N-star and the chance to participate in the National Tournament in Madison Square Garden. Jim ' s athletic career did not impair his social life, however, and he was frequently seen with many a charming lass. Jim ' s plans for the future are incomplete, but his easy- going manner and amiable personality will ensure an enviable record. F I F T A T T A F I O N 255 • F I F T A T T A L I O N Jm tVilliam n. linlay, Jr. WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA Always a routine— Bill ' s colorful pantomines depicting various aspects of Academy life shed many a ray of light during the gloom of the Dark Ages. He was one of the many men in the class entering from the regular enlisted service via fleet appointment. A year at North Carolina State University plus his two years of naval enlisted service gave this Tarheel ample preparation for his tour of duty of USNA. He was one of the mainstays of the plebe track and during his last three years was number one on the varsity flying squadron. Although academics gave Bill trouble at times, he always man- aged to come out on the right side of 2.5. He is destined to become one of the Navy ' s hot pilots, where his ready smile and ready wit give him a good start. WOODLAWN, NEW YORK Bob came to the Academy after two years as a radio technician in the Navy. Never one to let studies worry him, he took the academics in stride and stood in the upper part of the class with a minimum of effort— os- tensibly. An active participant in company and bat- talion sports, he could always be counted on to join a game of football, basketball, or baseball, and was known for and wide for his ability as a goalie in com- pany soccer, or as a center in football games. Noted for his quick wit and gifted with all the attributes of a fugi- tive from the Emerald Isle, he was a more than welcome addition to any company. Bob was undecided as to what branch of the service will be his career, but if his record here is any indication, he will succeed in what- ever he picks. mcrinn §1. Lallan HUTCHINSON, MINNESOTA Why did Mert choose the Navy as a career? It was all the result of the adventurous spirit which started way back when he was a boy in school, for he was never content with the ordinary every day routine. So with his first formal education under his belt, Mert set out to buck the cold world. Of course it was the Navy, and has been ever since December 1941, with three years of war action spent in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Mediter- ranean on the U.S.S. Nevada, then NAPS at Bainbridge. Since his arrival, Mert has been spending the fall months patching up batt football injuries and those winter af- ternoons writing bills for the LOG Magazine as Business Manager. With a steady eye in the air and the other roving the eligible field, Mert strikes out on the newest adventure of his life— being a Naval Officer. oJJs, ! otlribuli 256 NEW YORK, NEW YORK What better proof of a true sailor hove we than the nautical activities of the versatile " Fos? " Even his con- tributions to varsity swimming and sailing showed a nautical trend. He has displayed further fitting inter- ests by participation in the Boat Club, the Engineering Club, the Camera Club, and membership in the Amer- ican Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers. He hopes some day to design the ships in which the Navy sails. Hailing from New York, he was a con- firmed city boy and always astonished his classmates by his complete misknowledge of the rules of country life. But he also possessed a burning determination never to be set back by any amount of overwhelming odds. Surely there is a place in the Navy for so many attributes so well applied. i 1 %s - I 4ix LYNBROOK, NEW YORK Dick came to us from the Marine Corps, as no one could contest, once having heard his Marine cadence resounding throughout his crack drill platoon during Plebe Summer. He proved his versatility by becoming an ardent member of the Boat Club as well as a terror in the wrestling loft. It was an official document with Dick ' s middle name on it that won him the title " Duke of Haudiomont, " and he has been defending it ever since. The Duke would enter any argument with a reckless abandon, and if his opponents could not be convinced by his facts and wit, he would dig into his tremendous vocabulary and thoroughly confuse any disbelievers. The Duke wants to return to the Marine Corps upon graduation, and we can think of no better man to be waiting at the Far China Station to show us around on liberty. ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI He was known as Monk, Marve, and has answered to the O.D. ' s " Hey You! " One of the older boys of the class, hitting up around a ripe old twenty-five when graduated, he was naturally one of our most suave operators with the ladies. On cruise if you saw a wide mouthful of white teeth surrounded by a chestnut sun- tan, it was Monk. Well versed in the wiles of the sea lawyers of old, he would even submit a statement on a " Shoes, shined properly, not! " . Marv was a versatile athlete, having excelled in batt crew, football, tennis, and varsity extra duty. This son of the progressive state where the mule and Sears Roebuck come into their own intends to stay in the Navy forever, as a pilot of our hottest jobs, trying to cut the lumps from cumulus clouds. F I F T A T T A L I O N 257 F I r T A T T A L I O N f §ltMtph m. Gharwnlctf ROCHESTER, MINNESOTA Ralph blew In four years ago with a verbal barrage of Minnesota football, Shattuck School, and his thirteen days in boot camp. He immediately gained the dis- tinction of wearing the largest white hats in the old Seventh, as well as having the largest supply of old jokes. Plebe Year, no one finned out quite like the " Bird Dog, " as he was tagged. Always the Bull slash of the company, he could invariably be counted on for the minutest details of English— or any other— history. Ralph divided his free hours among the rifle team, the LUCKY BAG, of which he was Biography Editor, the Glee Club, and Reef Points, filling out with company and battalion sports in season. We who lived with him for these four years will remember Ralph for his hon- esty, hard work, sincerity, and good fellowship. He has the qualities which make for success. NEW YORK, NEW YORK Tom ' s year of majoring in Bull at Fordham may have been responsible for his independence of thought, but the fact remains that he was considered the philosopher of the 19th. Never content with the superficial, he analyzed everyone and everything he met. Alley Cop ' s strong point might not have been a slip-stick race, but in practically every other type of contest he excelled. Tom was one of the best squash players the Academy has ever seen, and has also played varsity tennis and plebe football, and taken part in the Brigade Boxing tournament. An excellent chess player, he was a strong point for both the chess club and the chess team. Prob- ably because he kept to himself, few people really got to know him, but those who did couldn ' t help but like and respect his seriousness and sincerity. YONKERS, NEW YORK " Long Jim " hails from Yonkers, which, he insisted, was the garden spot of the universe. He came to the Acad- emy from bell-bottoms, and, once here, took every- thing, academics included, with his long, easy stride and inimitable grin. A star athlete in high school, " Garry " has been a standout basketball player and track man here. During his last three years he con- centrated on track, where his churning legs hove spelled many a victory for Navy in the 440. When not dragging his OAO, Jim spent his spare time dreaming of the happy married life which was scheduled to start soon after graduation. Although he is a bit undecided con- cerning his future, we who have known him these last four years feel sure that Jim ' s winning personality will insure him success wherever he goes.

He took a keen interest in extra-curricular activities at the Academy, serving on the Brigade Activities Committee. Roy always gave his best in untiring effort and spirit. He was one of those naturals on the stage, which made him a success in the Musical Club Shows— he did not add too much to the musical aspect of any show, but was excellent in char- acter roles and stage planning. An avid sportsman, Roy took an interest in all phases of Academy athletics and played some good football besides. He had little trouble with academics. Brooklyn could well be proud of its formidable representative at the Academy. SALISBURY, MARYLAND Joe ' s first glance at this big world took place in Wheel- ing, West Virginia, but he eventually wound up as a native Marylander. After graduation from Wicomico High in Salisbury, " The Count " , a Life Scout, sold his ' 34 Dodge and trekked to the U. of Maryland, where he was lured first by Sigma Chi and then by a Naval career. Without a doubt he was the most suave gent in these parts, but his French cuffs and fancy links caused him no end of trouble with the braid of Ban- croft. For the women, the little guy was an explorer, but dynamite! Joe ' s many likes included swimming, music, hunting, flying, and the drums which he played like Krupa. His popularity insured him success whatever way he went, even over the wall. We didn ' t worry about him, though, for Joe was the sort of a guy who just couldn ' t miss the mark. LAGUNA BEACH, CALIFORNIA After Russ Goodacre got over his trouble with the Bull Department, he led a smooth easy-going life at the Academy, with quite a bit of fun thrown In. Instead of coming directly cross country from Laguna Beach in Sunland to Crabtown in Rainland, he took the long way, which included two years in the regular Navy as a TM 3 c with stops at Oahu and Midway Islands. Russ hod several encounters with the opposite sex these past cou- ple of years and after each one, he only reiterated to a greater extent his desire to remain a " Red Mike, " and it looked as if he would stick to his word. We didn ' t question such an attitude here, but some of the fellows did take his status to be a result of that receding hair- line, which caused no end of two-way kidding. F I F T A T T A L I O N 259 F I F T A T T A L I O N READING, PENNSYLVANIA " Have some pretzels! " Yes, it was Jim speaking. A true Quaker, Jim indulged his tastes for pretzels, beer, en- gineering, and football for a year at Penn before cross- ing the Rubicon. His most regular habit, next to sleep- ing each study period, was his nightly pilgrimage to the mailbox with the day ' s tale of woe to his OAO. The profs always had a hard time baffling Jim, who in- tegrated, differentiated, and manipulated the slide rule with the best— the only course that aroused exclama- tions of ire from him was Youngster Steam, which he regarded as the curse of Navy. Every spring and fall, Jim demonstrated those qualities of speed and decep- tion that mode him a varsity halfback on the football squad, and a terror to all opponents of the company football team in the winter. Jim has his course set for matrimony and carriers. READING, PENNSYLVANIA " Cleotcleaner, " as he will be remembered in years to come, joined the Navy at the tender age of eighteen and, after two years spent in becoming a radio tech- nician 2 c, entered the Academy. His title " Cleat- cleaner " was earned by three years of managing and caring for the varsity football team. Although not ex- actly a football or scholastic " star, " Bob succeeded in making a name for himself in both. " They can ' t do that to me " was his most common statement when he had one of his infrequent bad weeks and found him- self hanging from bush or tree. His foremost accom- plishment, however, he considered to be entering and leaving the Academy with the same OAO, and Joan has provided the main attraction in his life. Who ' s Joan? See R. W. about that. 7. . GauMlhtMWtM, Jr. COLLINGSWOOD, NEW JERSEY Badly in need of a haircut, the " Goul " arrived at the Academy singing " Fight For Collingswood. " He spent the first three years saying, " It won ' t be long now, a few more days and I ' ll be going home, " and the last year going home. Although he has nothing against sea duty, he ' d like to be assigned to a yard tug at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. While at the Academy, Frank spent most of his free time either in the water or on the water. He earned his N-star in swimming Youngster Year, and he devoted his spring afternoons to rowing up and down the Severn (with the crew, not the extra duty squad). After helping Kirk and Herm run the New Jersey embassy for two years, Goul moved in with the " Tiger, " " Bo, " and Jim saying, " Upper half of the class by ' 49 or-. " 260 John £. Qreene ATLANTA, GEORGIA Johnny could often be found in the gym, arguing with a stop watch as a rope climber on the gym squad, his Southern drawl giving no indication of his usual rate of ascent. After graduation from high school in Atlanta, he chose Georgia Tech for further education, studying there for three years, and, as a student of aeronautical engineering, fulfilling a life long fascination for air- planes. When not building muscles in MacDonough, the man with the middle name salted his blood by sail- ing on the Chesapeake. Johnny, an infrequent dragger, could often be found in the role of " snake " at the hops, because he just hadn ' t been able to find his " Sweet- heart of Sigma Chi. " ' David £. QuMnthd TULSA, OKLAHOMA Dave hailed from the Great Southwest— Tulsa and Kem- per Military Academy. Although he was far from a long hair, music was his field, and he proved a main cog in the Concert Band, serving in the capacity of Assistant Director. His performances on the flute have been out- standing, and it was often rumored that he had com- posed several unpublished concertos. Athletically built and well endowed with natural ability, Dave confined his attention to company and battalion sports. " Take Me Back To Tulsa, I ' m Too Young To Marry " did not apply to him, for a pretty blonde Navy Junior captured both his heart and his ring. Dave, a Southern gentle- man of the first rank, will surely reach the same rank in his chosen Naval career. (Wtiliam S. GtMihwie PUNTA GORDA, FLORIDA Bill came to the Naval Academy expounding on the merits of Florida and " How to catch alligators in one easy lesson. " High school in his home town and a year at the University of Miami in the Navy V-12 program prepped him for his Academy life. Quiet and studious. Bill excelled in academics with ease, and found ample time for extra-curricular activities, among which were the choir and Glee Club. Very active in athletics, he was on the plebe and J. V. track teams, the varsity swimming, and the company soccer and football teams. When not engaged in the above activities, this long and lanky Floridian could usually be found puffing an odor- ous pipe and trying to browbeat his wives into listening to his low-brow jazz records. F I F T A T T A L I O N 261 F I F T A T T A F I O N RICHMOND, INDIANA Dale has always been interested in things that fly. As a boy he kept bees for a hobby. When he became a little older, he spent his afternoons at the Richmond airport learning to keep ' em flying. When Uncle Sam beckoned with a persuasive finger, Dale donned the Navy blue and shoved off for Espirito Santo in the steaming South- west Pacific. Despite initial setbacks in academics here, Dale ' s perseverance and never-say-die spirit brought him through the Academy in fine style. When not de- voting his time to Math and muscle homework, this Hoosier spent many hours lazily sailing the Chesapeake and delighting the ladies. His flashing smile and quiet congeniality made him always welcome at social gath- erings. Whatever his future calling. Dale is sure of success. j€Bths9n D. Witt BATH, MAINE Jack came to Navy Tech from the rocky coast of Maine, where, for two summers before he entered the Academy, he worked in the Bath shipyards helping to build de- stroyers for the Navy and increasing his interest in ships and the sea. During his afternoon recreation pe- riods here he set up props for the Masqueraders ' pro- ductions, patronized the local opera houses, or beat his wives at handball. " J. D. " spent most of his evening study hours writing letters to a certain girl back home and he used the remaining time to exercise his artistic ability. He is looking forward to a career in naval architecture— with his talent and his ability to learn something useful from any situation, Jack should go a long way. NORWOOD, PENNSYLVANIA Not even the rigors of Navy Tech could change Ted ' s amiable nature. That pleasant smile and afFable per- sonality made him a welcome member of any gathering, be it a songfest, bridge game, or bull session. He was an accomplished musician, an eflficient student, and a confirmed " sack artist, " so his usual study position was horizontal. The ergs he stored up while in the sack were utilized in his weekly race against the clock— he was a regular member of the " Flying Squadron. " His chief sport was company soccer and he was an outstanding goalie. This versatile Philadelphian has added much to make our stay at Navy as pleasant as possible. No matter where he goes, we are sure Ted will be able to take his assignments in stride just as he did at the Academy. 262 H SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA Lev, as his friends knew him, was the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce Branch Office at the Naval Academy. Hard work early put him in top billing as a scholar. Always, as he was gentlemanly genial, his friends were without number— as well, he was the Citrus King of these parts, podner. His prowess at tennis and all the ball-bouncing, racquet-swinging sports was no- table. Classic renditions of Brahms, the newest photo- graphic paraphernalia, and penning folios to exotic beauties below the Rio Grande occupied Lev ' s time chiefly, and, being adept at Spanish, he planned to retire to a coffee plantation in Ecuador at age thirty. If the deserving are rewarded with success, he will at- tain just that. BANGOR, MAINE You never could miss spotting Whit, the author of those fabulous " Jennison Stories, " the effervescent character who just wasn ' t to be held down when the Maine " Stein Song " rang out. Having been soundly indoctrinated by the Army prior to prepping for the Navy, he was one of the few in our midst who held out to the end against that oft-derided naval terminology of " head, " " deck, " and " ladder " — Whit refuses to use anything but a flight of stairs on his climb to success. An ardent disciple of the no-strain school of living, Whit was an enthusiastic proponent of " combined operations, " but only so far as the combining of eating and sleeping were con- cerned. The gal that Whit plans to marry on graduation can be sure she was chosen only after extensive re- search in the field by our " man about the corridors. " May they always be happy! F I F T MILTON, MASSACHUSETTS " Jep " to his classmates, his spare length and friendly personality made a fme combination. Early in the war Jep began his Naval career and served for two years through the various phases of the Naval Aviation train- ing program before settling down here. His service stood him in good stead, and, coupling these experi- ences with his remarkable store of common sense, he settled down to a steady pace through the four year academic obstacle course. His Massachusetts back- ground, with its long history of seafaring men, was no handicap when he went over to Hubbard Hall to join the ranks of the crew men, for he took to it with a will, and remained there throughout his four years. When it comes to graduation, Jep still has his old desire to fly for the Navy, and plans to wear the wings. As he himself might say, " All in good time; take it easy! " A T T 4 L I O N I 263 F I F T A T T A L I O N DEER LODGE, MONTANA To make a long story short, Joe fell on his head while trying to ski at the age of four, and when awakened, he found himself making a slide rule do tricks in a steam lab at Navy. Quite a lot of time was expended, but Joe ' s wives finally convinced him that he had come to Navy via V. M. I., where he majored in electrical engineering and was awarded a varsity letter for his abilities on the basketball court. Joe stood high in his class with a minimum of studying, devoting most of his time to blondes, bull sessions and bridge. Numerals in plebe basketball and baseball, plus action on the com- pany soccer and batt swimming teams, attest to the ex- cellent form he had in the sports world. Joe ' s ready smile and pleasing personality make him a sure bet for tops in his chosen field. Jahn (tit. JatttBton, Jr. ELKINS, WEST VIRGINIA There was no one who took more pains to extol the glories of those West Virginia hills than Johnny. An avid basketall player, he ably supported the legend of West Virginia court prowess, and also turned to foot- ball or ping-pong, as you like it. Academics presented no worries either for this budding mental giant— in fact, it wasn ' t until Second Class Year that he recognized the existence of slipsticks. Before USNA, Johnny found time between his sports and his trombone to learn how to fly, so it is not surprising that he is a candidate for those " wings of gold " once he is with the fleet. From then on, he ' ll be good for twenty years-or more! Ener- getic, fun-loving, keen of mind and muscle— if Johnny had an Achilles heel, he never advertized it. One thing sure— here ' s one mountaineer who wears shoes and likes ' em. Socks? You ' ll have to ask Johnny. ' Mtcrtnan tl . Jnnes NEW CASTLE, INDIANA Although known by many as " Prone Jones " , because of his record-breaking number of hours spent in the sack. Bill was always quite wide awake when it came to ac- complishing some job. He was the fellow who, as chair- man of the Ring Dance Committee, provided us with the finest hop of our careers. He was also head cheer leader, a three-year N-winner in gymnastics, and a member of the Concert Band and the Glee Club. Bill possessed on extremely pleasant and likeable person- ality, coupled with a cheerful " help-the-other-fellow " spirit and a subtle sense of humor which prompted all hands to agree that " there ' s one fine guy " . This loss to Purdue, Sigma Chi, and the Naval Air Corps was definitely USNA ' s gain. His to ' (orious over H( lion 0(11 : 264 SCARSDALE, NEW YORK Dick came to the misty shores of the Chesapeake from the sunny banks of Rock Creek, with a year at Yale in between. He devoted most of his free afternoons to sports, usually football, or handball, or to the sack. Near the end of Plebe Year he was heard to boast, " I ' m in the color company, I ' ve got a cast iron posterior. " Although he was not a " Red Mike, " where wine, women, and song are concerned, he could take ' em or leave ' em. His favorite topics of conversation are the evils of the various Academic Departments and recent Yale victories over Harvard. " The Killer " is interested in both avia- tion and submarines. Whatever he does and wherever he goes, he is sure to make many new friends with his cheerful smile and quiet dependability. m i t» iA . U itiiawn §i. M ni, IMI BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA Bill came to the Academy from the wilds of Alabama with a fighting heart which, even after these many years of combat with the system, is still unconquered. It was this insuppressible spirit that guided him on the gridiron, the tennis courts, in the classroom, and in all activities. Socially speaking. Bill was an ardent ex- plorer. " Every week a different drag— may she always be a queen! " was the policy to which he adhered with few exceptions. Though perhaps not as gifted intel- lectually as Einstein or Archimedes, at no time was he hard pressed to keep within the top third of the class. As an individual he was a conscientious worker who possessed the aggressive spirit, coordination, and abil- ity which spelled success, both in the classroom and on the playing field. WEST COLLINGSWOOD, NEW JERSEY Early in Plebe Summer this mystified middle wandered in from West Collingswood, a metropolitan area of which Philadelphia is a suburb. Kirk passed the physical then, but he later suffered from that malady known as " Bancroft Blindness. " This was not the result of all study and no play, however. He liked exercise, that of the body bruising sports in particular. Back at Collings- wood High and at Bullis Prep he was a football star; here at the Academy he played football, fieldball and pushball. Weekends were reserved for gentler pursuits —dragging his OAO or playing bridge, for example. Because of his failing eyesight, he expects to go to the Harvard school of business administration. In the Navy or out. Kirk will be a competent administrator with many friends. F I F T A T T L I O N 265 F I F T 4 T T 4 F I O N • RUSSELLVILLE, KENTUCKY The little man with the evaporating blond hair was one of the foremost representatives of the state of Kentucky. He knew every inch of his home state as a result of following his Dad, a civil engineer in Kentucky. Tom chose a circuitous route to the Academy, spending six months as an Army aviation cadet and sixteen months wearing bell bottom trousers. His educational back- ground was diversified. T. D. played alto sax in the college dance band, was president of the junior and senior classes at College High and after graduation won a heated race for governor of Blue Grass Boy ' s State. Tom will be remembered for his ability on the hardwood, his mania for swing music, his choice of women, and his amiability. LARCHMONT, NEW YORK The " Pure Squire " was one of the closest approaches to a paragon of virtue that we met, either at Navy, or anywhere else. Space does not permit enumeration, but let it suffice that he was a fine, good-natured Irish gentleman, a credit to his family, and a source of edi- fication to all who knew him. Second Class Christmas we all lost a 4.0 buddy when Dick Swanson, his wife, came back with a gold band, signed " Yes, " and left the fold. It would seem that " Squire Ed " had a great affinity for water, for not only was it his favorite bever- age, but he was a natural when it came to getting around in it, either in swimming or sailing. With grad- uation, his affinity will be greater yet, for, in order to get as close to it as possible, the Squire will try to surround himself with it in a sub. He should fare well in the fleet, with his genial grin and friendly manner. HOUSTON, TEXAS When Jim happened around, it was a sign to drop the books and prepare for an enjoyable five minutes of re- laxing conversation. He was always prepared to for- sake the books for a football or basketball game with the gang, and his lanky, well-coordinated frame plus high school experience made him the star of the com- pany basketball teams for four years. During other seasons he joined the company fieldball, soccer, and Softball teams, because " company sports don ' t inter- fere with my dragging " , and dragging lovely women to hops was another of his favorite pastimes. Jim had two sides to his character— the good natured side and the gracious side. Both were in evidence at all times in conjunction with his ready smile for the entire world. tl I Mlh 266 FARGO, NORTH DAKOTA From the plains of North Dakota, our Northernmost out- post, and from the little village of Wahpeton therein, came Walter Marquardt, a young fellow who wore the uniform of Uncle Sam ' s Navy with the inspiration of someday becoming a great Admiral. This whim came, of course, after he had decided against missionary v ork in his home territory. In his younger days Walt was quite an athlete, being not only a star backfleld man on Wap High ' s gridiron but also an All-State choice in basketball. He extended his abilities to Navy and has done quite well. We might also add that Walter was no slouch in academics either. We are sure that Walter, with his winning ways and enticing smile, will someday reach El Dorado, in spite of his fast failing eyesight. §lalph U). mtMrthiMr GHOLSON, MISSISSIPPI The life of R. W. (Mac) McArthur represented the best in the tradition of the old South. Born in Mississippi in 1923, he spent the first eighteen years of his life grow- ing up and attending Lynwood High School. Then came Mississippi State, where he chose mechanical engineer- ing as his major, and spent two years pursuing this course. Here the rigorous academics proved difficult at first, but persistence was his guide, and Mac stuck with us year after year. For four years he was a fix- ture in the wrestling loft, filling in the off-season pe- riods with company and battalion sports. His major interest, next to wrestling, was Mississippi music, whether it be Dixieland or mountain style. In Mac, the Fleet will be getting a capable and determined officer who will make his worth felt. JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA Mike has really been around. A stretch of working with the F.B.I., a pre-law course at George Washington U., a doption into Sioux Indian tribe, and air-cadet training were just a few of Mike ' s varied experiences. Never having learned the Sioux language, Mike started from scratch in Dago, but became the company French slash by the end of Youngster Year. Although a Mike by name, Mac could never be classified as a red one, for even the tea fights sometimes caught his fancy. Mike was blessed with that mild sincerity which makes for popularity anywhere; always he could be counted on to listen to someone else ' s troubles, or help out in a pinch. His foresight, coolness, and discretion should make his future one of success. • F I F T A T T 4 L I O N 267 • F I F T A T T 4 L I O N WUliam C. m€mwMwwtBy WESTERN SPRINGS, ILLINOIS Bill, or Mac, came to Navy from right outside the Windy City, via a stretch as a seaman in the Naval Reserve. In spite of a definite tinge of Blue and Gold, he swore he ' d swop all of Maryland for any square mile of Illinois. Bill ' s life before the Navy included high school in LaGrange and a passion for hot convertibles. Here on the Severn he took active parts in most of the com- pany sports, and during liberty hours could often be found doing a little private flying. Academics came rather easy, so Bill spent a lot of good study time buried in all kinds of magazines and nev spapers. Mac ' s love of flying points toward a successful career in Na- val Aviation. One of his weaknesses was the fair sex, and it was said that a southern drawl was dynamite to him! FAYETTE, MISSOURI Mac gave up a commission to come to Navy, where, after a rugged time in an underwater demolition school, even Plebe Year seemed like a picnic. Although he entered last in our class, he was far from least in both academics and sports. As a halfback on the batt foot- ball team, his speed and drive won for him a place on the All-Brigade team. The rest of his free afternoons were consumed by track. In the winter he pounded the boards of Dahlgren Hall and spring took him out to Thompson Stadium, where his forte was the broad jump. He also liked a fast game of handball or a few rubbers of bridge. Carlos will be a welcome addition to any wardroom. He ' s quiet and serious with a knack for applying his knowledge. He is sure to make a success of the service career he hos chosen to follow. PORT-OF-SPAIN, TRINIDAD Although most people usuall y associated the tropic land, Trinidad, with scorpions, Gila monsters, and asphalt lakes in place of gardens, to John it was home— a veri- table heaven on earth which he was ever ready to praise. Like the rest of us, Mac had his daily tussle with the Academic Departments, but he always came out on top, for his serious attitude and initiative made the technical subjects easy. In the way of athletics John combined two traits that make champions, natural abil- ity and zeal for practice. Those after taps letters were to his fiance, Ginny, who came down often from New York to make John ' s weekends perfect. Mac ' s sense of fair play and loyalty make him one of the truest of friends, and his character, know-how, and leader- ship will make him a wonderful officer. « 268 PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND After two years as a V-12er, and an unstated period as possessor of those little gold bars, the " Young En- sign " gave up his merry roadster, threw off his weighty gold braid, and joined our lowly ranks. After a slow start ( " Got a drag for June Week yet, John? " ), McT became the Don Juan of Don Juans, an operator sans pareil— he didn ' t even find it necessary to possess the usual line. Since those first humorous sojourns to the course across the river Youngster Year, John ' s golf game has improved to the point of " near perfection, " and as a yachtsman he has also proved his mettle— a sporting gentleman was McT. If, in our four years here, some- thing has troubled John, no one save he has ever known about it, for continually he has maintained that calm, even disposition that makes for good fellowship. BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS Bill left Harvard in the spring of ' 45 and came to the Naval Academy. Though he had some trouble at first getting " hahf " enough " badadoes " to eat, a Boston accent was no handicap in class; he stood high with little effort, and probably caused the profs more em- barrassing moments than they were able to cause him. In athletics, his specialty was the hurdles, in which his ability reflected his father ' s Olympian talents. He also played halfback on the 150-pound football team. Naturally playful. Bill was dubbed the " Tiger, " a nick- name reflecting his competitive spirit and good nature. There probably never was a monotone in the history of the Academy who could render the " WhifFen-poof Song " in so sterling a manner as his. We wish him a future as good as his record here. WATSONVILLE, CALIFORNIA Gil, a curly-haired Californian, has been one of the " outstanding characters " in our class— outstanding for making friends and for always having a cheerful word or smile for everyone. He had a carefree way about him which one could not help but admire. Having no particular hobbies, he confined his interests to trying to play bridge and attempting to find the girl who will someday be his own. In the former he slowly succeeded. In the latter-well, to date he ' s still trying. We are certain that Gil will be very successful in life— either in the Navy or in California growing apples. His pleasant disposition will always continue to win more friends and with his ability life could never be a failure for him. r I F T A T T 4 L I O N 269 r I F T A T T A L I O N GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN When Chuck was not busy burning up his slipstick, he was pulling on oar in the number three seat of Navy ' s crew. Aside from his powers on the water, Chuck could mould a lump of cloy into anything that struck his fancy. Plebe Year he caused a mild sensation by creating a life-like statuette of one of Bancroft Hall ' s famous D.O. ' s. After spending a year and a half as an aviation cadet without seeing an airplane, so he says, he yearned for duty in the floating Navy. BuPers felt differently and transferred him to the Santa Rosa Air Base, California, to peddle a bicycle. This, strangely enough, was con- sidered overseas duty. Charlie, coupled with his ever present smile, is proficient with anything academic or mechanical. WEST POINT, MISSISSIPPI The stirring strains of Dixie were in the air and a Rebel Yell rent the peace of historic Annapolis as Rip Miller took possession of Maryland in the name of his native Southland. As if this were not enough, he further shocked Naval Academy officials by informing them that he hailed from West Point (Mississippi), and if they did not think he would do well at Navy, guess again. He has stood well up in the class, contributed no small athletic ability to company and batt sports, and ex- celled on the waters of the Chesapeake, acquiring his yawl command with ease. Equally suave when sailing, dancing, or while discussing the more romantic subjects on a cozy sofa. Rip had an ability with the fairer sex that was to be admired. NORTH MIAAAI, FLORIDA Entering at the tender age of 17, Dick was a younger member of the class, whose beardless face never let his classmates forget that one inferiority. A regional accent unmistakeably from Long Island revealed his native state; a short residence in Florida, however, con- vinced him that he would eventually settle down in rebel territory. Confining his activities to sports he expected to use in later years, he could be found either on the golf course, tennis courts, bowling alleys, or in the swimming pool, enjoying his free time to the fullest. Quiet and rather unassuming during Plebe Summer, he soon learned that these qualities were unproductive in a Naval career and exchanged them for an ever- ready smile and friendship winning manner. 270 .con. HAMBURG, NEW YORK Bobby strolled into Bancroft fresh from a twenty-seven month tour as a Naval Aviation Cadet with tales of home and Hamburg. As far as academics were con- cerned, Bob came out on the winning side. If there was ever a disturbance during study hour, you could always bet that he and the Arkansas Traveler were at it again. His athletic prowess dated back to high school days when he lettered in baseball and football. During Plebe Year, Bobby swam with the batt team and earned numerals that spring in plebe baseball. During the rest of his stay at Navy Tech, his visions of being a big Navy athlete began to wan and company sports be- come his forte. Although he was never one to let a girl get him fouled up, his escapades on Second Class Cruise were the talk of the Kearsarge. WELLESLEY HILLS, MASSACHUSETTS Look for the longest pair of legs in the State of Mary- land and you will find this long and lanky Yankee from Boston. Bred on broad A ' s, Boston baked beans, and sea food, Molly was constantly endeavoring to show his unenlightened classmates from the hinterland the one true way. He prepped for the Naval Academy at Severn School and spent a year in the Navy V -12 at TufFts College. Molly was the sleepiest individual who has entered Bancroft Hall in many a year. He could sleep during almost all study periods and still pass every course. A favorite gome of his classmates was " holding reveille on Mollison. " Oliver ' s main interest in sports was lacrosse. He played with the plebe and J.V. teams during his four years here. Molly ' s one weak- ness was blondes, one in particular. %| . Mlundi . ilIoor« RANCHO SANTA FE, CALIFORNIA Lundi must have acquired his love for the sun before he traveled the Old Spanish Trail to Navy, because here he could always be found working up a tan with the first signs of spring. Having earned letters in foot- ball, basketball, track, baseball, and golf at high school, he deserted all these sports for Navy ' s varsity gym team to the cry of " Up your rope, Moorel " , and to round out his repetoire was also a member of the varsity soccer team. All these endeavors belied the fact that he was a lover of the sack, and earned his title of " Henry the Ate " as on able chow-hound. Academically speaking, there were anxious moments now and then, but Lundi always managed to come through unbowed, if a little bloody. Easy to get along with and always friendly, Lundi will do well in his chosen profession. F I F T A T T A L I O N 271 . SACO, MAINE Bob left pine-forested vacation lands far behind when he came to Navy, but his proximity to the sea all his life made him a natural for the Academy. After Exeter, Bob, fretting with anticipation, marked time at Bates College, so the academics held no terror for this star man, who combined background and ability to excel. His skiing ability made his Christmas leaves one long Christie at North Conway, while his golfing and tennis skills, combined with dragging, his year ' round sport, took care of the rest of the time. Known as " Hairy Bob, " not because of his ever-so-slightly receding hair- line, but as a result of a series of explosive incidents known to his infimes, he had one worry— where to get a June Week drag. Dinty ' s enthusiasm and drive will bring him success wherever he goes. • F I r T A T T A L I O N UNIONTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA Nick ' s appearance at Severn shores was delayed while he did time as a red hot civilian at Penn State college, a patron of the local beer hall, a Naval Air Cadet, and a seaman 2 c with diversified duty. Coming to Navy via a fleet appointment was not the easiest road to success, but he made it. Nick ' s jovial and blase atti- tude toward life was often surprisingly punctuated with references from the Bible, Shakespeare, and Regula- tions of USNA, although he often confused the sources. Small of stature, but strong in physique, despite a swiftly retreating hairline, Nick always had feminine admirers. His fine competitive spirit, aggressiveness, and sense of fair play were always outstanding in friendly arguments and in his favorite forms of athletics. PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA " It ' s not what ' cha know, it ' s who ya know, " has always been Bill ' s contention, but regardless, there was still plenty of " Know-how " to go with that broad smile and amiable personality. Having few academic worries, he found time to play a mean line position on the company soccer team and to deal around a few hands of contract when the occasion arose. His weekly football posters and his contributions to the class crest speak well for his artistic talents. An ability to say and do the right things at the right times has made Bill ' s social life an outstand- ing success, but his classmates have always been a little uncertain about which Irish lass he would drag next. Bill has displayed his capabilities by taking a full Acad- emy career in stride. This is only a prelude to a suc- cessful future. I ' 272 KENMORE, NEW YORK Forsaking Cayuga ' s waters Lee brought to Severn ' s shores his great sense of humor combined with brain and brawn. Well fortified intellectually, and always will- ing to help a classmate, he gave extra instruction fre- quently. When not occupied in this manner, he divided his evening study hours between playing bridge and writing daily letters to his OAO. In the field of athletics, he was a stalwart end on the gridiron and a dangerous center on the basketball court, and from September to June he never let up. Lee ' s congenial spirit gives him a love of bull sessions and good-fellow gatherings, and if kidding were a virtue, he ' d be a saint. Some men suc- ceed by what they know, others by what they do, but Lee will succeed by what he is. BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA Apparently Larry ' s eight months at the University of California and twenty-two months in the Marine Corps, where he was a sergeant, radio technician, gave him time to form some very strong convictions, to which he was always more than ready to give voice. Being an Irishman as well as a Californian, and proud of them both, he combined certain traditional characteristics, including a determination never to abandon his ideas, a wonderful gift of gab, a nd a temper that never broke even under the greatest strains. Although his athletic activities were confined to intramural sports, Larry was a keyman on the batt lacrosse team, and spent his falls playing for the batt football team. In spite of constant beleaguering by his wives, Larry is a man with high ideals who lived up to them— a thoroughly grand guy. tVilliam . €) mahewitf RICHAAOND, VIRGINIA " Oaf " came to us from Richmond, Virginia by way of Thomas Jefferson High and Bullis Prep. The main ob- stacle Bill had to overcome academically was Plebe Steam, but a combination of a clean set of drawing instruments and a dogged Southern pride made the Steam Department realize they had a valuable man. Bill, still undecided as to a future on the sea, took advantage of every opportunity for a week end of fun on the beach. It had been noticed that the major portion of his important week ends were spent with a fair belle from the old Dominion State. There were many who will long remember a pair of laughing eyes which combined with a slowly receding hairline to yield somewhat over 200 pounds of a good-natured, honest friendship and Oaf! F I F T A T T A F I O N 273 F I F T A T T A L I O N EAST LANSING, MICHIGAN Dean came to the Naval Academy from the Wolverine State, whence he brought v ith him a love for winter sports. Perhaps the Maryland weather changed him, for here with winter ' s last snow still melting you could find him pounding the cinders. He won his N and has been a fine performer in both indoor and outdoor track, run- ning the hurdles and the 440 yard dash. " Da Hoot " was by no means all athlete, for he also enjoyed the finer things in life such as good books, music, and bridge. He was usually calm and collected except when his name was misspelled. Dean has made many friends because of his versatility and undying good humor. A peek into our crystall ball fails to reveal his future, but we are sure that he will find success in his chosen field. CatMfttaMMd . aiwncr, Jr. WATERFORD, CONNECTICUT From the vast reaches of the Mess Hall (delete Mess Hall, insert Wardroom Mess) and echoing through the endless corridors of Bancroft, comes the call of the " Foosh " — the one, the only, the incomparable Foosh, our pride and joy, a constant source of amusement and amazement to all. His bright, sparkling eyes and nearly constant grin marked him as a man ever ready to enjoy life, and take what might come in his stride. He was the only known underwater " Oiseau, " as, contrary to his sobriquet, he is a submariner from the word go, having grown up in New London, and coming to us with thirteen months of a USN " kiddy cruise " in his wake. All are agreed that the " Judge, " who was always ready to try a cose (of Scotch, that is) before the bar, will make out in a 4.0 manner. Take ' er down, Foosh! Jo n C. € sii9Mnd GILLETTE, WYOMING " Joke " was probably the roughest, toughest, deadliest hombre to ever leave the hills of Wyoming for a big eastern city like Crabtown-on-the-Bay. Known best for his easy-going manner and his interesting anecdotes of the Far West, " Guns " was also known as " the man who played fine piano " . One of the truest statements ever said about " Ost " was that everyone always had a good word for him because he always had a good word for everyone else. His western environment en- dowed him with a quiet, easy manner and a pleasing personality which made him welcome everywhere. John ' s modesty and genuine sincerity produced the effect on people of wanting to know him better, and his consid- eration for others gained him a long list of true friends. 274 1 oiiesi i (ntilian O. Mfffl SILVER CREEK, NEW YORK Take the first two initials of Milton ' s name and you have his nickname. Milt ' s most outstanding character- istic was his way of always being quiet and easy going. He was seldom known to anger even when the routine became extremely monotonous, as it often did. MO liked music and basketball, but his first love was basket- ball. As a plebe he played in the NA-10, but the next year he made the varsity basketball squad so it was one or the other and MO chose the latter. After high school in Silver Creek where he won letters in base- ball, basketball, and track, in addition to playing in his high school band and orchestra, MO enrolled at Syracuse University where he won his letter in varsity basketball. Then he spent a short time in the Army before being appointed to the Academy. John C. § cters INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA This versatile son of the Hoosier State has already ac- credited himself with an impressive list of naval accom- plishments. In 1938 he was a Sea Scout. In 1943 he was coerced (drafted) into pursuing his nautical bent and in 1945 he entered the Academy on a fleet appointment. Pete played the French horn in the Jordan Conservatory Orchestra, the Purdue Band, and other musical groups, and was well known in Bancroft Hall as the conductor of the Naval Academy Concert Band which, because of his brilliant leadership, needs no introduction. All those who have known him have been impressed by his vivaci- ous personality. Pete ' s future is as yet uncertain, but we can be sure he will find success and command respect in any field that he may enter. Kenneth . »rt r LONGMEADOW, MASSACHUSETTS After two unsuccessful attempts. Ken finally entered the Naval Academy with two years in the Marine Corps behind him. Interested in putting the next four years to good use, he worked hard and seriously, with the result that he found no fault with his class standing. Outside the classroom he got great enjoyment from Plebe track, intramural football and Softball, sailing and tennis, with stray week ends and evening happy hours devoted to such readings that his wives tagged him as a liberal arts fanatic. Greatly concerned as to how to manage his life in the Navy, he ' d like to gain experience in air, surface, and submarine duty, and settle down to post- graduate work in engineering. We all join in wishing the best of luck to you. Ken. F I F T A T T A L I O N 275 w I F T A T T A il I O N Charles £. §leid, Jr. GREENVILLE, MISSISSIPPI Always one to do things the hard way, " Chaz " came to Navy for his commission, leaving V-12 and N.R.O.T.C. when he was just four months short of the goal. He took reluctant leave of his Mississippi home for the trip North, all the while extolling the many virtues of the South and the queenly attributes of Southern belles, those of his OAO in particular. When he wasn ' t holding extra instruction for his wives and classmates. Chuck spent his time under a heavy load of extra-curricular activities including varsity track, the Trident Magazine, and the Choir and Glee Club. Aspiring toward wings of gold and an assignment in Naval Aviation, Chaz is a sure bet for a welcome reception and continuing success wherever his duties take him. Mice S. Mbytes FAIRMONT, WEST VIRGINIA Known to his classmates as Ernie, this diminutive mem- ber of ' 49 is an ardent exponent of the fact that physical stature isn ' t the prime requisite for success. While endur- ing four years of academics he has achieved great re- known as an energetic worker and one of the larger consumers of pencils around Bancroft. He has con- sistently been one of the men behind the scenes for the Masqueroders and Musical Club shows. In his few free moments he enjoyed music " in any form " and he seldom missed a hop. A firm believer that variety is the spice of life, he dragged many different girls— we would all like to know the secret of his attraction for beautiful femmes. Whatever the future holds for him, it is certain that Lee will make the most of his opportunities and will always have a host of friends wherever he goes. (WiUiawn m. Mlattifl TYLERTOV N, MISSISSIPPI Finding the New York winters too cold for him after a lifetime in Mississippi, Red left West Point at the end of Plebe Year and joined the better branch of the service. His easygoing manner brought him through four years of strictly regulated life here apparently heedless of the hustle and bustle of his surroundings. When he was not attending extra instruction in swimming, he liked to play volleyball. His ability to get things done with the least possible exertion has made him the envy of many of his classmates. Although he did not claim to be a " Red Mike, " he seldom dragged. Bill ' s quietness, sincerity, and his ability to get along with everyone should prove in- valuable in making him a success in his chosen career. 276 I oiwoys RICHMOND HILL, NEW YORK To Gene, graduation meant the start of what will prob- ably be an eventful career in Uncle Sam ' s surface Navy. After completing the course at Brooklyn Technical High, he spent two years in the reserve before entering Annapolis on a fleet appointment. Frances ' closest com- petition for Blockie ' s affection was without a doubt the gome of basketball, for which he earned a letter in high school, and to which he devoted much of his rec- reation time here. When he wasn ' t playing with the company five, he often practiced over in MacDonough Hall on his own and almost always had his array of trick shots down pat. He also played company volley- ball and touch football, and could sometimes be seen catching the duty boat to get in a few holes of golf before dark. A happy career and life certainly await you. Gene. J i 1 l-k- §li€hard U). idcnawMw DELPHOS, OHIO " Der Rollo " first learned of the Navy way in boot camp at Great Lakes. When he came to the Academy, he brought with him his tool kit and an amazing ability to get things done. His locker more than once produced the necessary equipment for a repair job on anything from a fountain pen to a strong box or for whipping up a Rube Goldberg gadget with which to amaze wide- eyed onlookers. As a member of the juice gang, he hel ped to hang many a sign carrying best wishes for Christmas or regrets for Army. Perhaps Rick ' s greatest accomplishment was bidding youngster cruise farewell with a " what-the-hell " pennant on the mainmast of that ship of all ships, the Washington. To say that there is never a dull moment when Rollo is around would be a gross understatement. We know he will find a place in the Fleet. CINCINNATI, OHIO Known as the Pied Piper of Annapolis, Paul could be seen any Sunday at the Presbyterian Church trailed by the little charges who constituted his Sunday School class. His interest in religion and philosophy and his athletic activities occupied the time not claimed by academics. His tenacious playing as an end on the Plebe and J.V. football teams earned for him the nick- name " The Grip, " only one of the many he acquired. Although his soft voice and courteous manners did some- thing to the ladies, " Teepee " was strictly a " Red Mike. " However he did use these same traits to advantage dur- ing debates as a member of the Quarterdeck Society. He hopes to enter the foreign service, and with his winning smile, twinkling eyes, and calm, persuasive man- ner he should make a good diplomat. We wish him every success. F I F T A T T A L I O N 277 F I W T A T T A L I O N GREENVILLE, ALABAMA When Zeke was a little boy, he joined the Boy Scouts. By cutting the throats of the other boys he worked up to a Star Scout. At Navy, he wasn ' t a star academi- cally, but he did change from a Boy Scout to a girl scout. We never let his initials fool us, for when he considered something worth the effort, no one could work at it harder than he. It just happened that he preferred athletics to Steam and Skinny. It was a well known fact that when Zeke and his buddies got together the Devil would certainly be raised. His reputation among his boy friends was quite different from that among his girl friends, but both were enviable. Frank was man enough to handle any situation in which he found himself. He ' ll continue to make his luck in the future. Ja€h W. §lnMpc SEATTLE, WASHINGTON After almost two years in the regular Navy, during which he attained the rate of fireman, first class. Jack was still anxiously looking forward to a service career as a line officer. Back home in Seattle, he attended Foster High School, where he was a letterman on the basketball squad. Upon passing the regular fleet entrance examination, he entered the Academy seeking outlets for his intense love of sports. He took part in batt swimming, handball, and squash, and company Softball, but found that his height was of more use to the volleyball and basketball teams. Many of his week- ends were spent dragging, but often he crossed the river to hit a little golf ball around and dig up some turf. His slow, easy-going golflng was typical of his char- acter and general manner. LEONA, TEXAS Tommy came to Navy from deep in the heart of Texas with the experience gained at the University of Texas and natural ability to fulfill his ambition to add to his long string of academic laurels. He was, however, al- ways ready to help some bucket with his Math assign- ment. Red never had the urge to go out for a varsity sport, but he was a mainstay of the company basket- ball, gym, and softball teams. He was well known for his effervescent humor and for his ready defense of the South. Evidence of his being somewhat of a non- conformist was shown by his often participation on the extra duty squad after a clash with the system. Industry and perseverance might well be Red ' s middle names, making him a sure bet in the future. 278 ANTIGO, WISCONSIN Pete played high school football and basketball back home in Antigo, Wisconsin, where he was born. After spending over a year in the Navy as a seaman deuce, he passed the regular entrance examination and en- tered the Academy on a congressional appointment in time to get well into the swing of the system before ' 49 joined the brigade. Plebe Year found him earning class numerals for his work with the basketball squad, but he later switched to the company five; and, during Second Class Year he became a capable and active participant at the pivot spot on the 150 pound Na- tional Championship football team. Probably Pete ' s two greatest characteristics were his love for those tasty brews which made Wisconsin famous and his loyalty for those ancestors froiti the extremity of the Balkan Peninsula. " wi arasp jW BEAVER FALLS, NEW YORK After thirty-nine months as a Navy radioman, with two years of sub duty. Jack was well able to call the Navy his home. Here at Navy Tech, he has strived for four long years to maintain his wrinkled topknot at civilian length, and to top his wives ' sarcasm with that of his own sharp tongue, which was a tribute to Maughan— a Razor ' s Edge. A man of strong back and broad shoul- ders, Sco spent two seasons " puddle pushing " with the crew squad. In academics, his firm belief was that a little work was good for the soul, but that anything extra was good for neither Jack nor the soul. Probably one of the best grilled cheese men in Bancroft, Snow- ball will be forever eligible for a short order cook job, but wherever he goes, whatever he does. Jack will have the stuff to make good in a big way. Suanncw Shapiwn NASHUA, NEW HAMPSHIRE " Shop ' s " trade mark, a profile of Tecumseh, Is well known because of his cartoons in the LOG and the Trident Calendars, and his somewhat vague resemblance to that Indian chief prompted his classmates to shower him with pennies for luck the night before the 1946 Army game. He went into the Army as an Aviation Cadet after graduation from the Nashua High School in 1943, but chose Annapolis over West Point when appointments to both schools were available in 1945. Almost any night that he wasn ' t drawing cartoons he could be found dragging a hammer around Thompson Stadium area. Few people ever saw him throw it but we ' ll take his word that he did. Shop has his eyes on Naval Aviation after graduation. Keep your eyes on him, he ' ll go a long way in the service. F I F T T T L I O N 279 w I F T A T T A L I O N Stephen . Sht wnshy BINGHAMTON, NEW YORK Though known for his penchant for heated argument, " S. A. " was a likeable sort of guy, and his occasional outbursts were really the results of exasperation, not or- ders from the Kremlin. The " Skomper, " was a natural for heavy work on the plebe and JV football teams, where he won awards, but his attentions were turned in another direction when Dick Johnson, one of the swellest boys to ever breathe USNA air, introduced him to Dotty, with whom Steve plans to face the music come June of ' 49. In returning from Youngster Christ- mas, " Good Steve " became just plain " Big Steve, " when his spotless record was marred— had he had one of his beloved planes, he might have mode it back on time. With fifteen months in enlisted Naval Aviation behind him, " S. A. " plans to go after those wings of gold. Harold J. Shirley NEW ALBANY, INDIANA After a year and a half at Purdue University, majoring in M. E., H. J. enlisted in the Army and was sent over- seas to the European Theater of Operation, earning the blue and silver badge of a combat infantryman. He was perhaps best known for his refreshing humor and his never ending supply of cigars. During Academy years, Shirl carried on a never ending, never dull, feud with Charlie Smith. These two were constantly perpetuating diabolical schemes to plague each other. H. J. joined the Spanish, Russian, and Boat Clubs through the courtesy of Mr. Smith. The old H. J. did not always see eye to eye with the USNA Regulations, and has picked up at least one " Black N. " His Navy plans are not definite, but he is sure he will never again have muddy feet from the Infantry. Alfred 91 Simeifh LONG ISLAND CITY, NEW YORK World War II brought a new type of man to the Naval Academy and such a man was " Sim. " He fought his way from the beaches of Normandy to the wooded hills of Germany with the 29th Infantry Division. Then he traded in his rifle for a slide rule and fought his way through N.A.P.S. and the Academy. In accomplishing this he realized a long-standing ambition which he de- veloped as an outstanding cadet at Peekskill Military Academy. Although it was a long hard battle, his deter- mined spirit, mature attitude, and cool thinking brought him through with his head high. He liked to spend his free time playing handball and softball, sailing, or dragging his O.A.O.Al ' s. Loyalty, spirit, and quiet mod- esty have earned for him the respect and good wishes of all of us who have known him. II 280 ChiMwies m. Smith LYNBROOK, NEW YORK Behind the wheel of a yawl, with his sou ' wester pulled snugly down over his ears and a cigar stuck at a rakish angle from the side of his mouth, the old skipper brought to mind a Navy long dead. Spike was also an avid ski enthusiast, beginning his skiing at Middlebury College in Vermont, and spending most of his Christmas leaves sliding over the Vermont countryside on his favorite hickory boards. Academically inclined. Spike joined the Spanish and M. E. Clubs. Having been in the submarine service before entering the Academy, Spike wonts to return on graduation, and branch off into deep sea diving and salvage work. Spike ' s sparkling personality, ever-present wit and willingness to tackle any problem will make him a sure success in any field he enters. £arl W. Smith, Jr. MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE Brother Earl of Bancroft revival fame, a loyal son of the Old South, brought all the ideals of a true Southern gentleman to the Naval Academy, even considering seceding when he was reported for flying the " foreign flag " of the Confederacy out of his window. Earl car- ried with him a philosophy of life that helped both himself and his classmates over some of the more cru- cial moments of a midshipman ' s career— he believed life, love, and the pursuit of comfort were too valuable to risk by worrying over trivialities. We all know that Earl ' s demonstrated adaptability will stand him in good stead in future associations. £ dqcwtfMn d £ . SpraqtMC MICHIGAN CITY, INDIANA Those attributes by which Tenny earned membership in two engineering honoraries, Tau Beta Pi and Pi Tau Sigma, while at Purdue University afforded him the time and ability to participate in a number of extra-cur- ricular functions here at the Academy. Executive Com- mittee of the N.A.C.A., Brigade Activities Committee, Spanish Club, and JV basketball occupied most of his time. When not engaged in one of those activities, in athletics, in dragging, or in helping someone with a Steam prob, " The Turtle " would likely be found on his sack reading a current best seller. Nothing less than a formation bell could disturb his power of concentra- tion. His consistency, logic, and tactfulness in giving his straightforward opinions identify him as the kind of man for a good associate and friend. F I F T T T A L I O N • 281 F I F T A T T A L I O N • KINGSPORT, TENNESSEE Rocky came to us from the mountains of East Tennes- see " where men ore men and the women are glad of it. " In high school he was voted the most studious in his graduating class, but his real yearning was for the outdoors; he has always been a crack rifle and pistol shot, as well as a capable horseman and trout fisher- man. George attended VPI for a year and then enlisted in the Navy for a short stretch before coming to An- napolis. His spare time activities included varsity track and rifle, as well as batt wrestling, crew, and lacrosse. Regarding the ladies, he was partial to fashion models, and more than one thought a lot of him. Rocky was a well-liked fellow whose determination should be a sign of good things to come. Charles € . Swvansnn DELTA, COLORADO Broad-minded Chuck came to Navy after a brief warm- ing at Bullis Prep, but no one was ever able to convince him that the " western slope " of the Rockies wasn ' t the finest country on earth. As a plebe, he quite often had to pull on those white leggins for an afternoon stroll around Farragut Field with the boys, but that was soon a thing of the past, and he was able to spend his afternoons on his sack, dreaming of skiis, fish and pheas- ants, and those snow covered peaks around home. Right up to graduation CO. was in a rather confused state, since he was undecided both about the Navy as a career and about women as a snare and delusion. His being so passive in romance was surely only a re- sult of his pleasing personality and warm friendliness, and maybe of his prowess on a basketball floor, too. ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA Steve came to Navy Tech via the Army Air Corps and N.A.P.S. on a fleet appointment. His extra curricular activities here ran to the body-bruising athletics, namely football and lacrosse— the rougher the better. A valiant defender of the divine American right of free speech, " Tevie Baby " claims that he has never lost an argument, though his victories often came through sheer lung power. Inherently good-natured, he was an asset to any party— some think he was the second son of the second son of Bacchus because of his ability to handle all " spiritus furmenti, " and we were inclined to agree. His ambition in life is to retire to the woods of his home country and live out his life running a resort on the shores of some sparkling pool. To him we say, " The best of luck, " and, " Save us a room. " i 0f 5(01 Imthf ieto hislo( iiii to lijter lilt Wi pO(ti( faloi eoling I i 282 f PELLA, IOWA " None but himself can be his parallel. " Joe came to Annapolis from a little Dutch community in the middle of the vast farmlands of Iowa. He was well known for his sharp wit, his discussion of political affairs, and his unpredictable antics. No one could point his finger, nod his head, and blink his eyes better than Joe when he was propounding one of his pet theories on life in general. Before coming to Navy, Joe attended both Drake University and the University of Iowa where he acquired enough knowledge to become one of the bet- ter " Bancroft Professors. " Many of the perpetual bilgers can thank him for having helped them over the rough spots. Few of us will forget Joe and his bright wit. We all hope that he can retire to his farm to raise corn, pigs, and little Dutchmen. HUNTINGTON, WEST VIRGINIA Hailing from West (By God) Virginia and singing " Way Back In The Hills, " " Beak " donned his first pair of shoes for the trip to Annapolis and took up the ways of Navy life to which he responded favorably. With a smile on his face and a few Syrian idioms and Joe Miller jokes on his tongue, he made those " Navy Days " seem a little lighter for all of us. Rog has always been successful with the women, but he has really excelled in the cruise ports and he therefore hopes for foreign duty only, par- ticularly in his Syrian homeland where he can enjoy eating kibee, yabrok, or lubany. Whether brewing " Mountain Dew, " shooting it out with the " revenooers, " serving beer at Sid ' s Place, or riding it out on the high seas. Beak will be an asset to all those with whom he comes in contact. Joseph §i. U)athcr LOGAN, UTAH Joe, a great admirer of the rugged beauty of the West, could never get used to the eastern weather. California claimed Joe for the ever-nostalgic high school senior year and graduation at Santa Anna Senior High School. Infantrymen are suprisingly numerous in the Academy, and Joe K. was of the ex-mudpushers. He earned the Expert Infantry Badge while in Uncle Sam ' s Army. The Navy claimed him before his outfit went overseas, and Joe attended the Naval Academy Preparatory School at Bainbridge. His ambition is to be a flyboy and re- tire at an early age to hunt and fish in the Rockies. Joe excelled in the characteristic California sport, tennis, and was a star man on the plebe and varsity teams. F I F T A T T A F I O N 283 F I F T A T T A L I O N BROCKTON, AAASSACHUSETTS The only Navy Junior in his company. Nails bore the brunt of the many attacks against his brothers and sisters, but he always squinted, scratched his head, and managed to come out with a reply that suited the situ- ation. He passed his high school days at Severn School, where he spent his athletic activities as a member of the J. V. lacrosse squad. Nails earns another decoration for his B-robe in that he was the baby of his company. Aside from decorating said B-robe, Bill ' s hobbies in- cluded hunting and guns. Most of us will remember him for his wild escapades at release each night. His favor- ite weapon was a pistol— a water pistol at that. When it was time to study Bill did just that, for he knew how and when to be serious. Bill hopes to follow his Dad ' s footsteps as a serviceman, but he is partial to the Marines. OBLONG, ILLINOIS With a sly remark to chase the gloom after a grinding day, Walt helped to keep life on an even keel in spite of academics and the Executive Department. He added variety to the lighter side of Academy life with flashes of diabolical cleverness and hints on how to beat the " system. " His jokes, though sometimes bewhiskered and excessively corny, were often the cause of aching sides and disrupted meals. Usually not given to blowing his own horn. Bob nevertheless did a pretty good job of bugle blowing for the Drum and Bugle Corps. His com- mon sense gave him a firm grip on the business at hand, be it a femme, academics, or life in general. From Wabash banks to for off shores, his associates will soon learn to appreciate the qualities that make this Mini a 4.0 wife and a valued friend. ranh ff . tVtMrd, III MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE " Memph " came to Navy from the Queen City of Dixie, full of tales of the Cotton Carnival and the glories of the old South. Academics were his chief source of trou- ble, but somehow he always managed to pull through just when the Math or Steam Departments thought they had claimed another victim. He divided his leisure hours between reading, writing, and athletics. Although he never quite attained varsity status in any sport, there were few types of athletics to which Frank didn ' t apply his mind and muscles. He kept most of his numerous female acquaintances under wraps during his stay at Navy, but whenever he was seen with one of them, she was " drag of the week " material. Frank hopes to get into the diplomatic or intelligence branches of the ser- vice as soon after graduation as possible. I 284 i. I BATTLE CREEK, MICHIGAN Hank, the personification of urbanity and Battle Creek ' s gift to the feminine world, came to the Academy after sixteen months as a V-12er ( " Victory in twelve years or we fpght " ) at Ohio Wesleyan University. While there he pleged Sigma Chi fraternity and enjoyed gridiron promi- nence; injuries kept him out of football here but failed to dim his enthusiasm for the sport. Mention should be made in passing of his prowess with the foaming liquid, for few could contest his speed at " pouring them down, " and some have found it fatal to try. He was always the life of the party and wherever you find him you were sure to find a party or at least a bull session. Hank ' s inate love of flying should make him a find for Naval Aviation, and his ready smile and humorous spirit will take him far. CLEARWATER, FLORIDA The " Bear " was a charter member of the radiator squad who hailed from way down South in Clearwater, Flor- ida. He had no sooner started a tour in the Merchant Marine when his appointment came through and he decided to view sea life with the Navy. Soon after, Fred decided he thought a lot more of Clearwater Bay, where he spent his leaves on an aqua-plane, water skiis, or in a sail boat, but not on a destroyer. During two years at the University of North Carolina and Van- derbilt University, he had concentrated on his pre-law course and the SAE fraternity. At the Academy he got a big kick out of playing push-ball and fleldball, and could often be found on either the company soccer or cross-country teams. Another interest and problem to him were women. HAYS, KANSAS Jim ' s quest for ever greater truths carried him first to Topeka High School, and then to Washburn University for two years. Unruffled by the trials of Plebe Year and Naval indoctrination, he emerged a dragging young- ster. Anything but a slave to academics, he launched himself on a social career paralleled by few with his typical carefree approach, and for Jim a non-dragging weekend was a complete failure. While passing time between weekends, Jim was not idle, varying his activi- ties from the break-neck fleldball competition through the milder sports to a crack game of bridge. Jim ' s in- exhaustible good humor will make him a welcome ad- dition to any function, be it a hop or a bull session, formal reception or a beer bust. F I F T A T T A F I O N 285 F I F T A T T A F I O N SIOUX CITY, IOWA This Phi Delt joined our ranks after thirteen months of dot-dashing with the Fleet. The Blade still raves about his one year as a Chem major at Iowa State, where he, like all good chemists, was an A.S.C.E. member. Since the completion of Youngster Cruise Jack has been an avid explorer, dragging or snaking at all the hops, and the second River Bank twin. Savoir of the first order, Jack felt no pain with steam kits, slipsticks, Nov charts, and math books. His 6 ' 2 " frame fitted well into the number seven slot of any shell and he spent many after- noons and Saturdays rowing up and down the Severn with Buck Walsh and the boys. Since the Blade ' s hob- bies are golf, music and co-eds, the tall boy from Iowa will make hosts of friends anywhere. CORAL GABLES, FLORIDA After graduation from high school, Zim completed a year at Georgia Tech, majoring in chemical engineering, before he took the road to Navy. Ed is a rather good- sized fellow, and was a star fullback for Miami Edison, but a questionable knee kept him from the varsity, so he showed his worth on the batt and company teams in football, cross country, and tennis. Not a " Red Mike " by any means, but as yet having no definite attach- ments, he was right in there pitching all the time. Where academics were concerned, it was a well-known fact that the bearings on his slipstick were always well- oiled. Ed ' s easy-going attitude has made him well liked, and his broad background, coupled with his native ability, gives him the stuff to do well whatever he tries. WASHINGTON, D. C. Eddie Woods, Navy Junior and loyal Vermonter, was born way out in Honolulu, Hawaii, where he must cer- tainly have learned to swim before he took his first walking steps. He could be found any and every after- noon over in the notatorium, stroking and kicking, lap after lap— or possibly going through some type of strenuous exercise along the side of the pool. Whether on belly or bock his purpose was always to work him- self up to the point of being able to swim the farthest, the fastest. This former Mercersburg Academy swim cap- tain also attended NAPS before coming to Navy. Here his recreation time not spent in swimming was used for company soccer and yawl sailing. Next to making like a duck, his greatest weaknesses were football and music. 286 ' I ter. . i- Ks% i Npi V » y o .T aV ♦ A I X T A T T A L I O N tiUhard D. adami SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA If you ' d like to meet a fellow who often wondered why he exchanged the carefree life of Centenary College for the regimented existence of Navy— if you ' re looking for an enthusiastic teammate for any sport from ping- pong to football, for someone who was always ready for a hand of bridge and who swore that in the long run he broke even in penny-ante, for a guy who looked forward to Christmas leave with its prospects of bird- hunting in the fields of Louisiana— if you ' d like someone to drag with who would make the evening a success, even if the girl failed, one whose southern blend of accent, good nature, and sense of humor couldn ' t be resisted— if this rare combination of southern charm and versatility appeals to you as much as it did to his class- mates—Look up Smiley! i WARTRACE, TENNESSEE From that fatal day early in September 1945, when ex- aviation cadet " Buzz-saw " Edwardo first laid his then twenty-twenty eyes on Bancroft, he was recognized by the jaunty, non-military air corps tilt of his cap. Born in Warfrace, population slightly over several dozen, he would probably be there to this day if the war hadn ' t intervened. In 1943 he entered Naval Aviation, where he was exposed to the great wide world, and by the time he got to Pensacola, he had a vast knowledge of all the finer things in life. Here he soon became known as Edwardo, largely due to his vast and all-inclusive knowledge of Spanish. His ambition was once to be a lawyer, and to prove his natural ability, he would argue either side of almost any question, never admitting defeat. TEANECK, NEW JERSEY Mole is definitely not the son of a biology prof who named his offspring after rodents. Before he gave Navy a break. Mole attended Princeton where he was presi- dent of his class and played on the football team. Princeton ' s distresses spelled Navy ' s successes. His ex- cellent academic background gave him time for his two loves, music and sports. Mole ' s ability for teamwork and his never-say-die style of playing won him starting positions on both the soccer and lacrosse teams. He was often happily engaged in playing some of his favorite Chopin on the nearest piano. Fond as he is of the submariner ' s way of life. Mole has our vote if the silent service desires a not too silent but sincere and able member. lib f«itii 288 Mtlan It. m€B€nn MINOT, NORTH DAKOTA Before coming to Navy, Al spent a profitable two years at the College of St. Thomas and Marquette University. At the Academy, he was a good athlete, and a main- stay on several company sports squads, including the volleyball and basketball teams. Al was proud of his Red Mike status, and never gave the femmes much of a break, but instead spent many of his weekends over on the golf course, getting closer and closer to par figures. A power hitter at heart, he still coolly sank those long putts to collect many nickels. Whenever any bull ses- sion slowed down, Al could always be counted on to throw in a gem or two of his dead-pan humor and start it ofF again. Al ' s unquenchable wit and sincerity have won him many friends here, and will be one of his strongest assets in the Fleet. ROCHESTER, TEXAS We will always remember in John his distinguished Texas drawl, his indescribable laugh, and his common sense approach to any problem or topic of discussion. His three years of engineering study at Texas A M and at Tulone University were a perfect preparatory course for the Academy, for his only academic worry was Dago— 3.4 that is! Company sports managers were always glad to have John on their teams, but 150 pound football was his specialty. The girls worried more over him than he did over them, but John seldom missed a good dragging weekend. John ' s most serious concern during his four years at Annapolis was a weighing of the comparative advantages between the life of a Na- val Officer and that of a Texas farmer. MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE Navy Tech ' s most ardent admirer of the soil was the distinction claimed by Bart, and few contested this title. Who else grew corn and potatoes in window boxes and seriously contemplated turning an empty room next door into a hatchery so that he could eat southern fried chicken between meals? Whenever one heard the strains of " The Midnight Special " or any other hillbilly tune floating down the corridors, it was pretty certain that Bart was the source of disturbance, strumming his be- loved guitar and bellowing in his pleasant nasal voice. Besides farming, mechanical ability came naturally to Bart. He was a member of the Mechanical Engineering Club, and much of his spare time was spent repairing radios, phonographs, picking locks, or mastering the practical applications of electricity. s I X T A T T A L I O N 289 s I X T A T T A L I O N KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI After attending Paseo High in K. C, Bernie had a year of preparatory work before coming to Navy. Plebe Year found his extra-curricular activities including plebe cross country, and that was followed by three more years of intramural competition in such sports as batt football, and company soccer, volleyball, and touch football. Bernie was never fazed by studies, for all were taken in stride, and evening study hours found him in the sack as early as possible, and early was always possible. Although quiet, he was not without his humorous side —at the end of Plebe Year, one of his more talkative classmates commented, " You must not hove said more than a dozen words all year, " whereupon Bernie re- plied in a confidential tone and with a humorous glint in his eye, " You should have known me before I came here. " CABOAL, MISSOURI Jim came to the Academy after completing three years in mechanical engineering at the University of Missouri and S.M.U. With this background, he was usually over helping a plebe work a math prob while his classmates were puzzling over the next day ' s steam drawings. A true friend in every sense of the word, he never failed to impress those he met with his honest, unassuming manner. An all around good athlete, Jim nevertheless, chose to be a spectator during most of his time at Navy. His prowess at the bridge table was unquestionable, and plebe and first classman alike sought him for a partner. Then, seemingly to round out a perfect per- sonality, Jim was also a lover of music— swing, popular, or classical. A valuable addition to the Navy, he has his success in the Fleet assured. fi SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA A true-blue Southern Colifornian, Frank never tired of upholding the glories of that state against all would-be detractors. A fine athlete, he was a whiz on the tennis courts, and could be compared to a member of the finny tribe when placed in his natural habitat, the water. Even though most of his time here was spent writing long, eloquent letters to that cute little brunette in ' Frisco, he was well able to hold his own academically, and even had time left to pursue photography and seri- ous music, his two chief interests. His troubles with the execs were almost nil, thanks mainly to his happy ability to sleep most of the time, thereby keeping out of harm ' s way. Frank ' s well-balanced outlook on life has made him many friends, and should stand him well in the future. 290 ' tiiggngMci € . CMBtin LIMA, PERU Wine, women and soccer. His excellent record on the soccer field may, however, be overshadowed by his performance in his other two extra-curricular activities. Manolo came to us from Peru after spending two and a half years at the Peruvian Naval Academy. Plebe year was spent running the upperclasses— Peruvian style —with his appropriate Spanish phrases that only he could understand. Academics were never a strain, for Manolo was number one in Peru. In years to come we shall find Manolo in the Peruvian Navy. All of his friends heartily agree that he will be a fine officer, a credit to his country, his Navy and his family. A liberty in Lima will find us with Manolo for his friendships are sincere and lasting. I T A T T A L I O N CHICAGO, ILLINOIS With two and a half years in subs behind him, Mike was already well acquainted with the Navy when he en- tered the academy. Although at times he had diffi- culties, he always managed to beat the departments, leaving time for plebe and batt swimming and making those justly-famous pots of joe. His scrapbooks and mail gave good evidence of his success with the femmes —some attributed that success to his big brown eyes, but those who were in the know were aware that it was the ready flow of conversation which appeared magically in the presence of the fair sex that was his great asset. If Mike has any time left over after conning pigboats in the fleet, he ' s sure to use these qualities to their best advantage. tViltiam M. mtath UPPER DARBY, PENNSYLVANIA Bill was probably one of the best known midshipmen at the Academy. Four years of football and varsity heavyweight wrestling have made him myriads of friends which he kept with his easy-going personality. Bill ' s hobbies were appeasing his dainty appetite and up- holding the honors of his native Pennsylvania. He at- tended high school in Shenandoah before coming to us via the University of Pennsylvania. Bill must have been quite a man with the ladies while at Penn if the prowess he has since exhibited can be considered a criterion. It is said that there are those who consider him a " God, Greek " . We all predic ' a bright future for this easy-going, friendly guy who has been a true friend to us all and a perfect room mate. 291 s I T A T T A l_ I O N PENNINGTON GAP, VIRGINIA " Blackie " prepped for the Naval Academy by spending o year at the Virginia Military Institute. Here his strength of purpose and quiet but firm determination won for him the respect, admiration, and friendship of his classmates. His active high school interests in athletics and newspaper management were combined here when he became one of the football managers. That his trust- worthiness and capability of taking routine action rather than procrastinating were appreciated is evidenced by the fact that he was elected a varsity football co-man- ager in his First Class Year. Blackie carries with him to the Fleet the same trustworthiness and easy-going friendliness that have been long cultivated during his stay here. II i|i FORT MITCHELL, KENTUCKY When " P. R. " traded his bell bottoms for the double- breasted blue serge, he never let the Navy forget that, academics notwithstanding, he was going to come out of the Academy right-side up. Despite the Navy ' s usu- ally faulty manner along such lines, that methodical manner hypnotized enough profs to keep him set and satisfied. Rare was the day when he couldn ' t be found in the vicinity of the soccer field, the mat, or the golf course, as both his proficiency in each and his over supply of equipment for the same showed. Maybe it was a couple of years at Lowrenceville and a year of brushing salt off a peacoat that made him high grease man in the room and kept two indigent wives watching him for the latest word. P. R. leaves Navy with a strong following and a bright future. Donald . asi t BALTIMORE, MARYLAND Formerly a fleet man and a survivor of the perennial battle of Poly vs. City, Boz came to Navy to recuperate. He ably upheld his home town ' s name as the star center halfback of the varsity soccer team and on the batt lacrosse team, where he shone at midfield. Those were not the limits of his athletic ability, however, for his swimming, bowling, and pinochle playing were of the best. Despite his full schedule of academic and athletic interests, Don occasionally found time to show his artis- tic side with the products of his gift of sketching. In our future voyages in life and the Service, we will find, as we have in the past, that time spent with Boz will be very pleasant, whether it be in the line of duty, or in the pursuit of pleasure on liberty.

Inou find, OS will be SALEM, OHIO A former subman, Billy surfaced in time to take the entrance examinations and enter the Academy with the rest of the 49ers. His fleet experience must have been valuable because Beetle never failed to make friends of his acquaintances in Bancroft Hall. Although he didn ' t believe in mental strain, he was an ardent exponent of physical exercise. His powerful little phy- sique enabled him to remain on the plebe gym team OS a rope climber and was no doubt the reason for his being on the championship 150 pound touch football team Youngster Year. Like many of us, Billy ' s plans for the future are not definite yet, but it is more than likely that the submarine service will see more of this likeable lad from Ohio. EVANSTON, ILLINOIS One May Day a new light shone over Cleveland, Ohio; our Ace was born. Migrating to Chicago when but a wee lad, he quickly found himself. His love of mimickry guided him to the stage of Loyola Academy. Leaving Loyola for a prep school, old " Purity Boughton " made his mark at Severn, playing JV football and lacrosse and again finding time for the stage. Upon entering the Academy, he quickly discovered a place for his talents with the Musical Clubs Shows and the Masqueraders, not to mention his fine work as MC of the smokers and his place on the Brigade Activities Committee. So with graduation we say farewell to the " Old Ace " , a credit to his family, his school, and the Navy Air Corps, his shining star. k DODGE CENTER, MINNESOTA Giving up a promising career in the Army, first as a private in the Infantry and then an aviation cadet, for that of a Naval officer was a big step in Lou ' s life. When he began Plebe Year, pushing a slide rule came as nothing new after the University of Minnesota, Cornell, and Michigan State. His hobbies were photography, dancing, and charming beautiful women— to say that he was an explorer would be an understatement. As an active participant in sports and extra-curricular activi- ties including LUCKY BAG representative Lou soon gained the respect of his classmates as being both ca- pable and likeable. His natural traits should assure him success in his chosen career of a Naval aviator. • s I T A T T A L I O N 293 Cart §i. Brandt YORK, PENNSYLVANIA Called " Chaunce " by his friends, he brought to the Naval Academy personality, a sense of humor, and in- herent ability— both athletic and scholastic. Already hav- ing had two and a half years of mechanical engineering at Franklin and Marshall and Duke University under the Navy V-12 program behind him before entrance to the Academy, Chaunce v as particularly well qualified for the work at Navy. He proved his athletic versatility by being an outstanding player on his battalion foot- ball team and his company basketball and Softball teams. His understanding and cooperation coupled with his sense of humor and his love for fun, which have won him an untold number of lasting friends, will always stand him in good stead— wherever he goes or whatever he does. I T A T T A L I O N tVilltam 91. iroughlon CHASE CITY, VIRGINIA Willie entered the Naval Academy via Bullis Prep and NTC Boinbridge, Md. During his Plebe Year he became interested in yawl sailing and spent much of his free time working toward his command qualification, which he obtained when he was a youngster. His musical abil- ity found an outlet in the concert band where he played the trombone. The varsity rifle team, battalion football, company cross-country and soccer teams left very little time for the radiator squad. His unselfishness and will- ingness to help a classmate made many friends for him, and his classmates will remember Bill for his subtle wit, musical ability, and the true Southern courtesy which made the Dark Ages a little less dreary for everyone. EAST LIVERPOOL, OHIO Undoubtedly one of the greatest radio " bugs " ever to come to the Naval Academy, Bob has thrived for four years on coils, tubes, and all sorts of radio gear. A product of the Buckeye State, Bob studied at Culver Military Academy and M. I. T. before coming to Navy. Besides bringing to the Academy his excellent know- how in things learned. Bob also brought a passionate in- terest in photography and music. His talents did not stop at radio and music, though, for he was active in sports such as cross-country, gymnastics, and squash. His per- sistence in finishing everything he undertook earned for him the appreciation of all of his many friends. Bob will long be remembered for his warm friendship and sin- cerity by all those who knew him. is( lenior ploie talx kino lowii lb 9 fl«l »« ' Ikes fenk Ne 294 MORA, MINNESOTA Born in the thriving metropolis of Mora (pop. 1596), Ralph came to us after serving two years in that fight- ing group, the U. S. Marines. Fearing nothing save the yearly physicals— it was rumored that he practiced Yoga to keep his blood pressure down— R. H. drove Juice profs into a tizzy, Steam profs to a frazzle, and his wife to distraction. Early Youngster Year he was frustrated by an over zealous Minneapolis lass, and became a con- firmed Red Mike. As such, he spent his weekends at the local cinema, or Al ' s, partaking of his favorite deli- cacy, cheeseburgers. R. H. is Crimson and Gold through and through, so, as might be expected, he ' s going back to the Corps, his first and true love— it would surprise none of us if he became the first five star General-Com- mandant of the Marine Corps. I X T A T T A L I O N . W ' tViiiiam J. udqe ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA Bill ' s forte was the humor department, where his caustic remarks and animal imitations won him a permanent place among the Bancroft funnymen. Bill carried over with him from Bullis Prep and high school his interest in football, and his ability and experience combined to win him a place on the JV squad. When unable to play his favorite sport, he could usually be found closeted with the grapplers in the wrestling loft. Whether in the Wardroom Mess or in the halls, where his battle cry was " Got any chow? " , he proved a Trojan in eating. The strong silent type, he never said much about his feminine admirers, but those letters from Illinois and New Jersey proved him no Red Mike. With his deter- mination and good nature, he will fill his place in the Marine Corps well. JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI Silence is golden— but in these days of nuclear fission and redeemed alchemy, you never know what you have. Split " Silent Bush " into his component parts and the result would be plenty of decibels. The " Senator " from Mississippi is a man of action. In two and a half years of horizontal duty, he finally got his class numerals, company soccer. Before P-works, " B. A. " was either busily absorbed in Esquire or raucously blasting on a sour harmonica. On weekends, Bel Ami emanated per- sonality for the craving fairer sex. (And occasionally the not too fairer sex— what a bricking party!) But B. A. ' s heart belongs to the Navy Air Corps; his successful ca- reer will be a natural consequence of his charming, easy-going manner and his ready wit. 295 s I T A T T A L I O N APPLETON, WISCONSIN Bush was an all-around athlete and all year round it was football. For three years Bush quarterbacked the 150 pound football team to their championships and for four years he spent his Sunday morning happy hour with the sports page following his native Wisconsin eleven. Bush never gave the Academic Departments a chance, for his will to study kept his rotors spinning in the right direction. Coming from the midwest, Bush never found much time for these eastern city girls, sav- ing the better things of life for leave. After graduation we shall find Bush in the silent service where his silent smile shall again surround him with friends. Having great faith in his beliefs, Bush has left many sincere friends at Navy. SAN BERNARDINO, CALIFORNIA The education of K.M.C. was a splendid example of the many— ah— contacts that go into the making of a mod- ern young man. His saga included Kentucky, Arkansas, and the San Bernardino valley. During the late un- pleasantness, " K " Carr ran his LCVP aground many times in the far reaches of the Western Pacific, whence the Navy sent him to the University of Jonesville and a cataclysmic encounter. The subsequent guerrila war- fare between K and his inamorata has been the subject of more discussion than Maryland weather. He had more than his share of hospital time, a host of friends, and a reputation as one of the best softball pitchers in Bancroft. Graduation leaves the round man gazing wistfully at the construction industry as he dons his shoulder boards and raises his right hand. MnthatMtf S. C hMMWwB HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT Tony left his table down at Maury ' s, deserted the hal- lowed halls of old Eli, and brought his infectious smile to Navy. A sturdy New Englander with on abounding love of life, he looked every problem (redheads pre- ferred) squarely in the eye. After he starred Plebe Year, his mechanical mind led to an abiding interest in Radio and a locker littered with old condensers. On the blood-bathed soccer fields of Hospital Point, Tony mangled many a shin fighting for the glory of the Tenth. But it was out where College Creek and the Severn join to form the Chesapeake that he came into his own, and whether it was a dragging weekend or just an over- night race, Tony could be found in the first yawl to leave its moorings. Whether sailing, courting, or at academics, Tony will always steer a winning course. «poii 296 : PATCHOQUE, L. I., NEW YORK J. J. spent a year at Notre Dame prior to his entry in Navy Tech, majoring in mechanical engineering, and taking an active part in the Glee Club and Band. At the Naval Academy he proved his unlimited ability by participating in plebe football and soccer and com- pany football, baseball, and basketball, in addition to his work with the Serenaders and Glee Club. His popu- larity among his own company members was evidenced by his repeatedly being chosen as their company repre- sentative to fight their official, and sometimes un- official, battles for them. With his heart set on the Marine Corps and Aviation, Jim goes forth from the Naval Academy with the eyes of a host of friends upon him. MONTCLAIR, NEW JERSEY " Satchmo " and " King Oliver " were but a few of the nicknames OIlie acquired as a result of his undying love of America ' s music, " Le Jazz Hot. " Although he hailed from the Athens of America, his natural habitats were a few select New York nightclubs, where he could be found most weekends revelling in " Dixieland. " Despite his coming direct from high school, he did quite well academically, especially in the liberal arts courses, with Spanish and history as his specialties. Even though he was hampered on working on his hobby his first two years here because of lack of a phonograph, he more than made up for lost time after the start of Second Class Year. His extensive record collection provided many enjoyable hours for all and there was no doubt that he convinced many of the merits of jazz. RIVERTON, NEW JERSEY " A. B. " came to us from Riverton, N. J. (We cannot find it in the latest atlas) after absorbing two years " doing or dying " for dear old Rutgers. A look at the back of Al ' s B-robe could tell you what his great interests was —sp orts. As varsity guard for three years on our championship 150 lb. football team, with battalion bowling and track in the spring, he was in shape from October until June Week. His wives were constantly an- noyed by his huge correspondence with the fairer sex. He kept the Bancroft Hall post office busy with letters to all points in the U. S., and after our European cruises his postage stamp bills reached the proportions of our national budget. Al plans to enter the submarine service on graduation and with his friendliness and willingness to help others, his success is only a matter of time. s I T A T T A L I O N 297 I X T A T T A L I O N Charlet £. Cuhwell SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS Leaving behind him three diamonds as Colonel of his high school ROTC, Charlie laid the foundation for his Naval career by prepping at the University of Texas. At Texas he picked up an uncanny knowledge of Span- ish and sharpened his natural ability at composition. At Navy he divided his spare time betv een Glee Club activities, company sports, dragging and keeping up his Academy scrapbook. His friends v ill remember him as a man who took his work seriously and operated within the bounds of the Reg book, but who was always the first to see the humor in any situation. His prime asset was his consistent good humor, which showed up in his ready smile and optimistic outlook. With his sin- cerity, his high ideals, and his natural ability, he will go a long way on any course he sets. Stanley iV. CmmwUs, Jr. SEATTLE, WASHINGTON For any unusual fact, he is your man. With a back- ground obtained from Broadway High, broadened by college life in an NROTC unit at the University of Wash- ington, Stan soon proved to all that he had more than just attended those institutions. Initiating a bridge game, aiding a bucket involved with a prob, or seeking a so- lution in horizontal engineering were all in order during the leisure hours. With the week ' s studying done, the Hyde to Jekyll transformation came regularly at noon Saturday in anticipation of some young thing. Always an entertaining raconteur, Stan will produce many a chuckle over the morning cup of coffee with the same cheerful energy which will earn him recognition in the line. m PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND Rudy, forewarned of the academic rigors of Academy life, took care of that phase with study at Providence College, and that, coupled with his natural ability, left him with little to fear in that line. He was also forewarned of the trials of Plebe Year, but his well-developed biceps proved that in that case, forewarned was not forearmed. Rudy ' s athletic endeavors were on the track and the soccer field, where, in the latter, he was a company star, and in the former, he worked with the varsity. On the social side he took in a hop once in a while, but preferred playing the field to settling down. His major troubles here came from his love for the sack, especially and unfortunately between reveille and breakfast. He is definitely a thirty-year man, with his main ideas on the future concentrated on subs. I SffllR 298 HOLLY GROVE, ARKANSAS J. P. was the original AOL Ari ansas traveler. During Plebe and Youngster Yea rs, J. P. started the New Year with thirty days confinement for his hometown. Holly Grove, and Snip, his OAO, just didn ' t want to let him go. Coming to us from Staunton Military Academy and the University of Arkansas, J. P. had little trouble with the academics. Jim was one of the outstanding ends on the championship 150 pound football team and when not chasing a football, he could be found in the darkroom. Jim always found friends and was always willing to make a fourth for bridge. Upon graduation Jim will trade his two present wives for one and so long as Arkansas stays in the Union, we will find Jim a thirty- year man. I T A T T A L I O N Chartcs Di icncdelin NEW YORK, NEW YORK Here ' s a man of whom Brooklyn may well be proud. He attended Brooklyn Poly for three years, after high school, and his record as captain of Poly ' s wrestling team pointed to his later achievements here. Then Chuck enlisted in the Navy, and entered on a fleet appoint- ment after a year. His outstanding specialty was sports, and he easily excelled at any he undertook. Athletic awards for wrestling and 150-pound football attested to his proficiency in that line. His classmates have en- vied his way with the women many times, for his choice seemed infallible— just ask somebody about those Euro- pean liberties on Second Class Cruise. Never one to take a strain with academics, Chuck had a knack for learning things easily. The Navy will gain a valuable and popular officer at his graduation. BELL CENTER, WISCONSIN Dobby entered the Academy after a year at Lawrence College in the V-12 program, where he earned a letter in track running the mile. He continued his track work at Navy in cross country and track, but his running ca- reer was ended when during leave Second Class Year he contracted phlebitis in his left leg. Academics have never bothered Dobby very much and he has always managed to stand high in his class. Dobby was no Red Mike by any means, but no one could take the place of his OAO back home. He was the Navy ' s guinea pig for sea sick pills, but all efforts for him to win over the bounding main proved useless. He has faith in the Navy as a career and hopes someday his stomach con- quers the sea. 299 s I T A T T A L I O N PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA With Army experiences ranging from the comfortable ASTP unit of Wayne University to a paratrooper ' s life in Europe, via the Infantry and Signal Corps, and backed by tv o years of studying at Carnegie Tech, It was only natural that Harry should fake all the aspects of the Academy in stride. Arriving with an anxiety for his failing eyes and adopting a theory that first things should come first, he limited his studying to a minimum and devoured any and all periodicals. Judicious ap- plication in this last mentioned field of undergraduate endeavor gave a whopping knowledge of current events, several awards in that line, and an ability to converse on almost any subject. In truth, Harry will be remembered as much for his fun-loving arguments as for his high sense of morals and winning personality. i JgMwancs M. DanavtBn LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA Born and raised in the sunny hills of California, Jim needed many rainstorms before he finally became ac- climatized at Navy. Most of the gang knew him as the guy who would work that too-tough prob when torn from the daily cross-word puzzle. Active with the var- sity basketball squad, Jim could be seen every winter racing down court with the ball in Dohlgren, wonder- ing why he had smoked that last cigarette in Bancroft. Weekends usually found him dragging or pursuing his hobby, golf, on the course across the river. He had one source of frustration— as a rationalist, he never could see why rainclothes would be the prescribed uniform when the sun was shining. Jim goes to the Fleet with his eyes on Naval Aviation. That Irish smile and an abundance of common sense will make him admired and respected always. ELKINS PARK, PA. " Laugh a minute " Kurt did much to brighten up our four years at Navy; his practical jokes and witty remarks turned many study hours into minor riots. He was a motor machinist ' s mate second for over two years in the Navy before coming to Navy Tech. Kurt was on the varsity sailing team— scuttlebutt says it was the almost year-round training table that attracted him to the sea- going sport. Whenever he tore himself away from his beloved sack, he would be out on the bay skippering a yawl. Kurt had his serious side too, and appreciated music, books, and the legitimate theater. He could quiet down when the occasion demanded, and when he did he came up with many gems of wisdom. His pleasant outlook on life qualifies him as a good shipmate in any man ' s Navy. 300 ■i tiehrcnd J. t)uwaldl FORT WAYNE, INDIANA Skipping college, Bucky came straight to Navy from his Fort Wayne High School. The sincerity and con- genial personality that he brought along earned him many close friends. Buck was never satisfied with his grades; he always hastened to apologize for them as he cooled his slide rule. After the home town girl, his chief interests were bridge, good music, sailboats, model airplanes, and touch football. As a model airplane de- signer, his theories were often challenged but seldom disproved. Casting aside the prospect of aviation as his eyesight dimmed. Buck joined the M.E. club and looked forward to engineering. Buck ' s efficiency and the energy with which he attacks his responsibilities en- sure him a valuable and diversified career. BETHESDA, MARYLAND John was one of those who excel in everything they try. From an academic standpoint, he was a star man who specialized in proving that one needn ' t be a college graduate to succeed at Navy. His executive ability brought him the presidency of the French Club and the job of secretary of the Mechanical Engineering Club. On the athletic field, he starred at company soccer. As well, he always had time for such hobbies as photog- raphy and aeronautics, this last earning him the title of " Flyboy " — that he rated the title was born out by the fact that he was the only man to enter Navy while wearing the uniform of a first sergeant in the Civil Air Patrol Cadets. Those who knew him will never forget his week by week battle with a water gun or his adven- tures at the Carlsburg breweries. ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA Bob ' s winning smile and helpful way made him a wel- come addition to our midst late in Plebe Summer. While most of us were content to struggle solely with aca- demics, Bob had time for everything, and few of the Academy ' s activities escaped the scope of his literary and artistic talent. His unbounded energy and un- flagging zeal for finishing the job made him a valuable member of the Art Club and the Public Relations Com- mittee, while his work as editor of the Trident Calen- dar and the cartoons with the Faricy by-line are well- remembered by all. Bob ' s captivating manner wasn ' t limited to his classmates, however, for he had a par- ticularly fetching attraction for the girls and made little noticeable effort to undo nature ' s blessing. His con- tinual regard for his associates will serve him well in the Fleet. s I T A T T A L I O N 301 ' ) I T A T T A L I O N JSetlie 9i. Senfon. fr. CLINTON, IOWA " A book of verses underneath the bough, a jug of wine, a loaf of bread and thou bes ide me, singing in the wilderness— " Omar had the words to characterize a fun-loving fellow who enjoyed the richness and pleas- ures of life. Those features all could be found in vary- ing degrees in Les. Those things alone didn ' t tell the whole story, for the picture wouldn ' t be complete with- out mentioning his notorious weakness for bridge, his favorite prone position while meditating with his eyes closed, or the generous contributions he made to his friends during the football season. Perhaps in twenty years Les will be found teaching the pleasures of Eng- lish literature to another generation, still cursing the Math and engineering endured at Annapolis. PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA After a year at Penn, Pete came to Navy with a tennis racquet where his right arm should have been. From Plebe Year on, he was a mainstay of the tennis team, and almost any free time would find him out on the courts winning pints of ice cream from the other players. Even during leave, he found time to win a few tourna- ments in Philadelphia. When it come to academics, Pete had the system down cold, and managed to cross all the rivers without too much difficulty. He maintained that at least port of his academic success was due to the two packs of cigarettes per day, while a few ciga- rettes before and during a tennis match were indispen- sable to victory. Whatever the reason, he always came through against Army, and has the B-robes and trophies to prove it. BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA Don, a true southerner, came into our midst one fateful September morning after spending over two years at the Virginia Military Institute. After his time at V.M.I. , this military stuff was nothing new to him, although, to say the least, he didn ' t thrive on it. Having been successful in football at V.M.I., he went out his first two years at Navy, but on finding that it took too much time that could be devoted to other things, he dropped it. Don ' s interests in life were many— both blonde and brunette, and he was never known to miss a dragging weekend. Due to his previous college, the only academic trouble he might hove had was due to a tendency to de-emphasize studies. On weekends he could always be counted on for a party, and in this way made life much more liveable for both himself and his friends. 302 l i ST. ALBANS, NEW YORK Al, who was better known to his classmates as the " Human Greyhound, " both for his ability on the track and for his academic prowess, always seemed to be able to turn out " 10-flat hundreds " just as easily as 4.0 P-works. However, he didn ' t limit himself to track and starring in academics— sleep, women, and batt football, in that order, also played a part of his life here. Al- though starting as a Red Mike, he later joined the ranks of the Flying Squadron. If Al had spent less time worry- ing about his hair line and more about the reg book, the E. D. squad probably wouldn ' t have seen him so much. Al ' s ambitions for his Navy career aren ' t very grandiose —all he wants is a permanent billet at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. WASHINGTON, D. C. Although John played JV football at Severn after at- tending Calvin Coolidge High, upon arrival here he found sailing more to his liking, and soon gained a po- sition on the varsity dinghy team due to his proficiency in that sport. Almost every afternoon we could see " J. B. " leaving for the dinghy float, wearing his usual dungarees and foul-weather jacket. To supplement his argumentative abilities, he had an analytical mind, and this scientific approach was of considerable value in the daily battle of wits with the Steam Department. Never one for " going steady, " John, although he has dragged considerably, has made no promises as yet. The sub- marine service will gain a valuable and well-liked officer in his graduation, since it has long been one of John ' s ambitions to specialize in the underwater branch of the Navy. ChgMwnninq Qawdwncw DULUTH, MINNESOTA One year at the Michigan School of Mines and another as a seaman first class left Chan well prepared for all aspects of life at Navy. Academics were never a strain; after evening meal, he usually skipped over the next day ' s lesson, and then turned to one of his many tomes and treatises on philosophy. Dragging weekends usually found Chan in the sack; but on liberty, his love of a good time and boundless energy came to the fore. We will remember Chan best for his deliberate speech and action and the inimitable loping gait. His lethargic manner never fooled his friends, who acquired cut throats as a result of his orderly, analytical mind, and bruised limbs from his proficiency in soccer and lacrosse. Chan ' s competence in all matters, and his ability to get along with everyone are assurances of his future success. I T A T T A L I O N 303 s I T A T T A L I O N (tntBlthemw J. QatMSs, Jr. ST. CHARLES, MISSOURI Four years ago, Jack was sworn into the Naval Service with a broad, pearly grin on his face, and during the ensuing, oftentimes monotonous grind, he was seldom seen without that same happy face. Better company was not to be found for a breeze session, a card gome, or a song fast. A proud and true member of the show- me state. Matt was never satisfied with the facts alone; he had to know the reasons behind them. Although possessed with musical talent. Jack decided Youngster Year to lay aside the violin and devote his time and energy to other interests, namely drags, company sports, and graduation from the Naval Academy. After the Academy he hopes to begin his career in the submarine service or aboard cans. tflfffMf Offff «VSS, Jr. SPRING LAKE, NEW JERSEY Beau was always rushed despite his desire to remain tranquil. His last minute showers usually had him grop- ing for a towel when the formation bell rang, and he ran anchor man on the Flying Squadron. The cartoons and art work Beau created for the LOG and Trident Calender reflected his sharp sense of humor and his love of female beauty. Beau studied as little as possible, although his final standings seldom betrayed this fact. Stirring classical music as well as foot-tapping jazz were equally pleasing to Beau if well played, and his own piano renditions were enjoyed by all. Beau, who seems to derive his happiness from seeing others happy, will be a welcome addition to any wardroom. His person- ality, repertoire of interesting facts, and his ability to listen are sure to show him success. GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN " Monday morning— and another week in which to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. " That was Dick, with forty-nine merit badges too. The " kid " from the land of dog-sleds, affectionately known as Bird-dog or " The Bay, " was versatility personified. His ambitions and interests were numerous and included buzzing around in the wild blue yonder. Although the Dickeroo expended ten thousand calories daily at tennis, handball, track, and road-work, not to mention E. D., his boxing prowess was his distinguishing ability, as many 145 pounders attest. The handsome lad with the pleasant smile and inexhaustible energy will continue to spread his ray of sunshine everywhere.

Although he managed the varsity wrestlers, and left his mark on plebe and batt lacrosse opponents, Tom ' s idea of good exercise was a rather slow fingering drill on the clarinet, which he played with both the band and orchestra. His hobbies were music and his collection of first day issues of stamps which extended back in an unbroken line to 1937. He worked with REEF POINTS, wrote many letters, (almost prayerfully hoping for an- swers) and still managed to stand near the top of the class academically. His winning smile will stand him in good stead wherever he may be. SitMnlctf J, Grcii BROOKLYN, NEW YORK " Get this, it ' s the nuts! The greatest thing since Seven- Up! It ' ll kill yal " A finger pointed at you like Uncle Sam in the " I want you " series, a hand grabbed your lapel, and you were immersed in Stan ' s newest masterpiece (possibly for the sixth time), whether it was a poem freshly censored from the LOG, a Gershwin tune on his harmonica, or a brilliant math solution designed to baffle the profs. Some suspected that this mathematical master mentalist carried 8-place log tables in his head, but Stan isn ' t selfish about his slide rule technique. " Call Stan! " was the popular cry the night before exams. Athletically, his high-water mark was the managership of battalion water polo between sessions with the sub squad. His bathing suit never got wet! NORFOLK, VIRGINIA William and Mary claimed Jack for a while after high school, but Norfolk had exerted its influence, and he found his way to Navy. His mathematical prowess was legendary— from integral calculus to mental mathematics was quite a step, but Jack took both in his stride, as he did all the academics. On the football and soccer fields. Jack was a terror— one hundred and fifty pounds of jet-propelled muscle, and woe to the bewildered opponent who crossed his path! " Eight-ball ' s " haircut and his practical jokes gave him quite a reputation. The former involved only a pair of clippers and a bare scalp, while glue and after shave lotion were integral parts of the latter. But the bases of Jack ' s reputation were his unfailing sense of humor and his generosity, both of which will never fail to set him In good stead wherever he may be. I T A T T A L I O N 305 I T A T T A L I O N CHICAGO, ILLINOIS After high school in Chicago, Don studied chemical en- gineering for three years at Yale, and his scientific in- terests continued at Navy, where he was an active member of the Mechanical Engineering and Photo Clubs. Don still had plenty of time for company cross-country meets and volleyball gomes, and could always be de- pended on to help a sports manager in almost any con- test. He was one of those rare individuals who never let the academics disturb him, for he could spend part of every study hour with a magazine, and still show any of us how to solve the most perplexing skinny problem. We may forget the skinny problems and cross-country meets, but we will always remember his cheerful man- ner and happy laugh. florfon D. ardinq Jr. SHARON, MASSACHUSETTS Nort ' s customary Massachusetts reserve was absent only in the autumns when a vociferous spirit replaced it as he cheered Navy and Yale, his first Alma Mater, on to greater football glories. In most athletics Nort was more than the spectator type, save during the cross country season when he was always dashing over hill and dale with the harriers. Although he had many blind drags because he would never refuse a harried classmate, Nort enjoyed music more than social activities. His col- lection of Mozart ' s works assumed alarming proportions, for the classics were his first love. His second love was steak, which he devoured with a passion. He was a star man with ease, and, with his brilliant mind, Nort will succeed in whatever he does. We only hope that the wardroom of his ship can contend with his ferocious appetite. Chawics . €Mrtf PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA Truly a citizen of the " City of Brotherly Love, " " Chuck " lived up to his heritage as very few do. After enlisting during the last war, his desire for a career in the Naval Air Corps resulted in his coming to the Academy. No- torious for his desire to become a good Naval Officer, he has excelled in exactness and ability in his daily work. Chuck was an avid basketball fan who pre- ferred to ploy rather than watch, and undoubtedly would have been an asset to Navy ' s squad had not a sudden desire to learn to swim altered his plans. Chuck ' s natural good nature will carry him far in any field and this, coupled with his perseverance and desire to learn, practically assure him of success in the Navy. ' W ws nop «J lo« k lol oil lite » Ml 306 i BROOKLYN, NEW YORK Four years ago the Naval Academy was blessed by the entrance into its hallowed confines of Brooklyn ' s lead- ing citizen, Jim Haughey. Coming to Navy via Brooklyn Tech and the Naval Air Corps, Jim brought with him an excellent reputation in swimming and track. Versatile in the art of oratory, and possessed of an ardent love of good reading, he was always among the most sought after whenever a bull session was being formed. Jim was the idol of the academic delinquents, having cheated the academic departments at least once a year of a prospective candidate for civilian life. Jim enters the service with the desire to make the Marine Corps his career. Regardless of what branch he enters, however, his drawing personality will win him many friends. I T k y A T T A L I O N BERGEN, NEW JERSEY " Bob " hailed from the wilds of northern New Jersey and was one of the first of his classmates to arrive at An- napolis. He entered No. 3 gate for the first time early in June 1945, fresh from five months on subs at New London. Bob managed to maintain a respectable aver- age in academics and at the some time give his all to the plebe and varsity gym teams. Bob was never one to be called a Red Mike; on the contrary he dragged quite frequently. Fond also of dancing. Bob held the all time high record in hop attendance. Still rather re- ticent and retiring, yet calm and forceful in his de- cisions, an attitude which will carry him far in his Naval career. Bob has always been one of the best of buddies. YORK, PENNSYLVANIA After a year of electrical engineering at Bucknell under the V-12, Carl came to Navy with a commission in the Marine Corps as his primary objective. Although he spent more time dragging and writing letters than on academics, Todd managed to stand near the head of the class. He was active in many intramural sports, ex- celling on the company soccer team and the P. T. De- partment ' s sub squad. The rest of his recreational hours were divided among his hobbies, which included pho- tography, art, and music. The latter interest made him one of the mainstays of the concert band, where he played with either the clarinet or saxophone section. Graduation will have a double meaning for Carl, for he and Jean have been waiting ever since way back when they were in high school together. 307 I T A T T A L I O N tVilliam £. Moff STOCKTON, MISSOURI Bill, who always worried about his rapidly receding hairline and expanding girth more than he did about academics, was a past master at the art of snatching a few extra forty winks. Quite contrary to external ap- pearances, however, he was a quiet, adept, and driving athlete. Coming from Missouri, where lacrosse was only known as an old Indian game, he nevertheless took it up Plebe Year, starred on the JV ' s Youngster Year, and then played with the varsity. Basketball was second nature with Bill, but he was handicapped by his short stature. It was a rare occasion if a weekend passed without Bill dragging, but he was never known to date but one girl, perhaps for his own well-being, since she was his fiancee. She was forced to share his love, though, with Food, Sleep, and Lacrosse. b- ' I WAKEFIELD, RHODE ISLAND Jack was a tall, dark, good looking young man who came from the Puritan section of the country. He per- sonally held the distinction of never having graduated from high school or college, but he has finally dropped his guard and finished the school of his choice. His carefree Naval ways have clung to him throughout his stay at Annapolis, for he continued to have at least one girl in every port. His activities included dragging, handball, beating the system, and smoking. Although Jack might not have been the six striper, his name was destined to be on a plaque in " Loose " Hall for some stirring quotation as " Damn the Demos, Pass the Buck " . This easy-going young man will undoubtedly succeed and make friends wherever he goes. WILBRAHAM, MASSACHUSETTS Another of ' 49 ' s budding flyboys, with two years of aero- nautical engineering at MIT and a private pilot ' s license to his credit, Lloyd was well on his way when he came to Navy. His college training, coupled with a natural ability to " get the stuff, " made it easy for him to breeze through the Academy without taking too much of a strain. No radiator squad man, he was a double threat athlete, equally at home on the varsity soccer fields or in a shell, pulling with the varsity crew. His inventive genius led him to pioneer in the hobby of propelling model cars with carbon dioxide gas bottles. Although always ready with a cheerful greeting, his habitually quiet manner showed that he was fonder of actions than words. This, together with his alert mind and love of flying, fits him well for his field. 308 I llj I oloeto- il ' i license he tome noiwol to bfeeze lUck ol blelW • fieWi Of inventive p(opellin9 Altliousli j| oclioni and io»e FAIRFIELD, CONNECTICUT Jack was introduced to the sea-faring life at an early age in a bouncing sailboat on Long Island Sound. He has been one of the star-boat sailors ever since plebe year, and for weekend activities, dragging ran a poor second to a sailing race. When winter closed in over the Severn, Jack confined his athletics to the battalion bowl- ing team, where his strikes and spares helped to win several Brigade championships for his team. He was well fortified to battle the Steam Department— two and a half years of mechanical engineering at Yale did the trick. Only his close friends will ever really get to know " J C " , as he goes serenely along behind that un- assuming nature of his, but the Fleet will profit when this Connecticut Yankee comes aboard. wed4fw ' itti. Q. ofat§ GREAT RIVER, L. NEW YORK Every afternoon, rain or shine, Fred would rush back from classes to get started at what he considered to be the only real sport-sailing. Perhaps his enthusiasm could be traced to his Long Island background, but that back- ground doesn ' t explain his other interests, such as a fast handball game on a cold winter day, or an exceptional interest in good food, which he always knew where to find. Though there was absolutely no excuse for his being one, Fred always appeared to be a confirmed Red Mike. Most of us weren ' t convinced that he had the true Red Mike spirit though— it seemed possible that there was a little laziness involved in his not dragging. He had a happy grin for each of us, and can certainly be depended on to always be a real friend. Shepherd m. Jenhs PIEDMONT, CALIFORNIA Shep came to the Academy right after graduating from St. Albans in Washington, where he had stood in the top ten percent in the nation in his college board math, and so had little difficulty in gliding through the math here. The remaining academics were handled in a man- ner that enabled him to stand high in the class. Shep early began his sailing career on San Francisco Bay, and this career extended through the Academy where he was active in yawl sailing. As a result of this ac- tivity, one fisherman is probably still wondering what species of sea monster parted his nets one stormy night on the Chesapeake. With the acquisition of a vic- trola, Shep was subjected to the tortures of his wife ' s jazz records during the last two years, but he managed to survive this, even learning to identify a chorus by " Satchmo. " s I X T A T T A L I O N 309 I T A T T A L I O N y hn £. J ensen CHEYENNE, WYOMING The ex-signalman deuce could always be counted on for a friendly greeting and a warm smile. Big-hearted and easy-going, this seaboot aficionado was well equipped by his world-wide experiences to help others with their troubles. Realizing the value of a warm smile, he made it a point to keep his spirits up under con- ditions which would have discouraged many others. Jen ' s fertile mind and quick tongue, combined with the habit of trying to get out of disagreeable situations (picked up while doing Armed Guard duty), was be- grudged by no one save the Executive Department. Of course, his encounters with this department never gained him a win, or even a draw, but with the Aca- demic Departments his determination and application resulted in continually improving marks. His display of doggedness and fight presages a successful Naval career. RACINE, WISCONSIN Gifted with the glib tongue of a super salesman, Joe has many times sold and re-sold the Brooklyn Bridge, and never could be matched when it came to jokes. While at the Academy, he won his numerals in varsity swimming and also had a hand in batt lacrosse, com- pany Softball and fieldball, besides being a member of the Boat Club and Foreign Language Club. Joe was able to do without wine, as his special interests are con- centrated on women and song in that order, and finally on literature. While Joe ' s superior officers may gray a little at the temples as a result of his capers, we are sure they will never be able to complain of boredom as long as the Pride of Racine keeps smiling. §lnhert W. Mcnncdtf RIVERSIDE, RHODE ISLAND Fiercely proud of his New England heritage. Bob never retreated from his stand that the colleges of that region are the finest in the land, although he lost money and gained grey hairs each fall in support of their football teams. A quick if not brilliant student. Bob breezed through the studies with a minimum of effort, always managing to stay a step ahead of the academic de- partments. His athletic ability, although considerable, was extremely concentrated— all in his right index finger. As a member of the pistol team, he learned to " squeeze them off " with the best shots in the country. His ever- present wit, represented chiefly by his acid tongue, was a constant source of amused consternation to us all. His loyalty and generosity point to a future in which success looms bright. 310 i I Hm ' WASHINGTON, D. C. Black was the day when Mills couldn ' t be found either denouncing the system wholly or in parts, thumbing through a mental index for a drag for a classmate not fortunate enough to hail from D. C, or pounding an ear— generally his partner ' s— on the wrestling mats. Those mental powers not churning at the moment were held in reserve to keep the academic foe at bay, or were turned toward sick bay— his health never seemed to be at a peak at Navy, and his relapses seemed to follow, or precede the academic schedule. The vocal powers not in use were being saved also— his weakness was running everyone save plebes. Mills ran the athletic gamut pretty successfully during the four-year fiasco, and the day wasn ' t complete without a workout of some sort. I T A T T A L I O N Silherl §. aiirh DALTON, MASSACHUSETTS Dalton, Massachusetts, in the heart of the Berkshire hills, claims Gil Kirk as one of the home town boys who made good. After attending Dalton High for two years, where he played football, he transferred to Wilbraham Academy, where he played tackle on the football team and worked at the field events on the track squad. Gil enlisted in the Navy during his senior year there, and eventually wound up at Dartmouth in the V-5. We re- ceived him here via NAPS to go into the brigade late in the summer of 1945 with the tailormades barely off his back. Gil ' s main claim to fame lay in his membership on the 1946 championship interbattalion pushball team, his football career having been held down because of injury. He was best known for his ability to tease, living up to his Irish ancestry. FAIR LAWN, NEW JERSEY George is so dog-goned tall that aboard his ship there cannot be any low overheads or small passageways- just plenty of deck space for planting his feet. He liked his sleep so much that it was usual to see him sacked in on cruise, but when there was something to do George wasted no time in getting it done. He was partial to Liederkranz cheese, beer, aviation, games of chance, partying, German, and all types of music, and could be found during the day either lugging his bowling ball and shoes down to the alleys, or trying to stop that falling hair that might be the result of many months of wearing a swabby hat. His mild humor and good nature will be welcome on any ship. 311 I T A T T A L I O N tVilliam S. 9inohle HELENA, ARKANSAS " Soy de Arkansas " — that was one phrase belonging un- mistakingly to Bill Knoble. Possessing all the qualities becoming a southern gentleman, he was proud of his state, and the deep south in general. Bill prepped at Marion Institute and the Citadel before coming to the Academy, so he was no novice to the Plebe System. Lumpy ' s chief claim to the gentleman of distinction title was his uncanny ability to drag only queens. Bill was a devout reader of Time magazine, which he claimed kept him mentally sharp, and frequent handball games served to sharpen him physically. He has his eyes on the wild blue yonder, but still cherishes a secret ambi- tion to return to the joys of hunting and fishing— in Arkansas. OXFORD, CONNECTICUT Phil can truly say he never left home. His beloved Con- necticut was the subject of many a conversation as well as the title of a well-worn but cherished record. His lack of college established the precedent he followed of hard work. Phil will be best remembered for his varying successes on the soccer fields, for, after a very successful season as a halfback with the plebes, a knee injury hampered his movements somewhat with the varsity, al- though his determination kept him going all the time. One of his chief worries was his hairline, and daily re- assurances that he was not, repeat NOT acquiring that " distinguished look " were necessary to keep that worry down. Phil ' s determination and generosity will help him tremendously in the Fleet and in his planned at- tache work. Chris U . £tBtnh PORTSMOUTH, OHIO Somewhere on the way between Ohio State and Navy Chris lost his Yankee accent, but he brought with him an abundance of energy, appetite, and joviality. Al- ways ready to get " the boys " together for a few barber- shop melodies or hill tunes, " The Rasp " made a con- tinued effort to augment and improve his repertoire. Probably his efforts at this were only exceeded by his attempts to obtain the names and addresses of his class- mates ' drags at the hops. On winter weekday after- noons, Chris could be found in Mohan Hall practicing for Masqueraders ' productions. But all his time was by no means devoted to indoor activities. Athletically, he was proficient in everything from ping pong to baseball. We shall always remember Chris as an endless source of song, chatter, laughter, and help, when it was needed. 312 GLENDALE, CALIFORNIA When Lech came east, he brought with him a bit of that California sunshine reflected in his smile and person- ality, which, coupled with his willingness to help others, have won him many friends. While at Navy, Lech has found time to engage in company soccer, company gym, company football, batt crew, and yawl sailing, of which yawl sailing has taken most of his time and provided the greatest pleasure. But athletics have not prevented him from attaining a high academic standing with a minimum effort. Actually he spent more time reading than studying and Saturday night usually found Lech playing bridge instead of dragging. With his ability and ease of manner. Lech should go far in the career of his choosing. CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS Born and brought up in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Jack came to the Academy from the reserve midshipman school at Ft. Schuyler just a few days before his sched- uled graduation and commissioning, having already had a year at Boston College as a civilian and eighteen months in the Holy Cross V-12 behind him. As a mem- ber of Navy ' s soccer team, manager of the lacrosse team, and a mainstay of his company ' s football and Softball teams, he has shown his exceptional athletic versatility. Sometimes quiet and restrained, always gen- erous, witty, and determined. Jack was driven by three forces— unselfish devotion to the service, to his family, and to his religion. If he is your friend today, he will be your friend for life. MELROSE, MASSACHUSETTS Wes had already seen quite a bit of the Navy when he decided to make his beloved Fleet a career and come to the Academy. On cruise if this shell-back wasn ' t in the sack he was always on the signal bridge remi- niscing over his three years as a quartermaster or his first-class rate. But during his four years here, he ac- complished much more of which he can be proud. His tympani were a mainstay of the band, and his struggles on the lacrosse field were typical of his spirit and his readiness to work. Academics were his main trouble, but by hard work he made up for the studying he had missed while at sea. His good nature, friendly grin, and generosity made everybody who knew Wes his sincere friend. This friendliness and his industry and love for the Navy make his future bright. • I X T A T T A L I O N 313 I X T A T T A L I O N DETROIT, MICHIGAN Tim was a man who come to Navy Tech with the deter- mination that he would accept nothing but the best from himself. A man of fine taste, he enjoyed good music and the other fine arts. He won our admiration by his ability to apply himself completely to whatever he undertook, whether it was a blow at the Academic Departments or a game of batt football. With a year at the University of Detroit, Tim had a good background to help him in the classrooms. Tim ' s interests were many and varied, as evidenced by such hobbies as wood- carving and photography. Nor did he ever neglect dragging, for he took many beautiful femmes to the hops. It ' s the Marine Corps for Tim, or else. " Or else, " as he would add, " I ' ll take something else. " Our smil- ing Irishman will always do a good job, wherever he may be. (William £. martin, HI Slanwi Q. mayficld, Mti ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA The South and Shirley Ann loaned Bill to Navy, and it won ' t be long now before Shirley Ann takes him back. He probably spent at least half his study periods writ- ing his OAO, but managed to squeeze through the aca- demics—with a starring average! Bill was active in company sports, starring in cross-country and football, and was a mainstay of the out of season weight-lifting squad. His varied abilities led to the drawing board, and this, coupled with his photography, produced one of the most interesting, artistic, and professional-looking albums to be found. When Bill wasn ' t writing a letter or working on his album, he could be found hiding under the covers of his bed. His buoyant spirit, sense of humor, brains, and ability should make him a suc- cessful aviation and naval officer in the Fleet. NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA Service in the Navy came as nothing new to Stan, who finally admitted he was a genuine Navy Jr. After prep- ping at Marion Institute and spending a year in the service, he came to Annapolis flying the stars and bars of the deep south. In order to foil the upper classes, Wix went out for Piebe Cross Country— and ended up sitting on the Varsity training table. Youngster Year, however, he did his running for the 150 pound football team as first string end. It was rumored that " May- flower " never really tackled his opponents— he just used his famous nose to advantage. Wix has no definite plans for the future yet, and in the meantime he says that he will be very content to make the Navy his ca- reer in anything except an airplane. :U 314 NEWTON CENTRE, AAASSACHUSETTS Irv, better known to us as Mac, is another representative of Massachusetts, caNing Newton Centre home. Mac majored in electrical engineering for two years in the V-12 program at Worcester Poytech before coming to the Academy, so many of his classmates appreciated his previous learning. As far as the sports went, Mac commanded much respect due to his versatility and ex- ceptional ability in soccer. Besides winning his N in soccer, he played plebe lacrosse and company football and Softball. His hard playing and earnestness won him many friends both on and off the field. Either the sub service or the Naval Air Force will receive one of our best. I T A T T A L I O N FLUSHING, LONG ISLAND Mac was right at home at Navy, having a brother in the class of 1945, and being an Admiral Farragut grad- uate himself. Soccer, wrestling, and singing occupied all of his weekday time that was not stolen by hopeful classmates looking for a drag in the pages of his volu- minous little black book. Nor were they often dis- appointed, for his femmes were as outstanding in beauty as they were in number. His greatest worry was the fail- ure of any of these interesting sirens to turn his heart to love. Wherever a crowd was found, Mac was surely at its center, leading in a chorus of " Flaming Mamie, " or maybe just a few choice lines from his favorite bar in Greenwich Village. Ambitious and far-sighted, Mac will certainly be as successful in the Fleet as he was in all his varied activities at Navy. Ifwcd J. m wcnty COLDWATER, MICHIGAN With the stench of hypo attacking your nose, a German zither trio setting up unsympathetic vibrations in your eardrums and stumbling over wires, condensers, and an old clarinet, you ' d find yourself in the home office of Morency Enterprises, Inc. In a cloud of smoke in the center of this maelstrom you ' d spot a colorful character with thick dark hair uncombed and an imperturbobly detached look: A. J. Morency, proprietor, the man who sailed flaked out on the coaming while his drag fum- bled with sheets and tiller, crossed the finish line of the cross-country course im peccably dressed in reefer and white hat, and beat the system by passive resistance. Though the course of least resistance often coincided with the 1650 course around Farragut Field, nothing ever bothered Jim. 315 I T A T T A L I O N SEATTLE, WASHINGTON Pat left a berth as an electrician ' s mate aboard the YMS 212 to enter the Academy. He came originally from upper Michigan, where he acquired skill in zooming down hills on a pair of battered skiis. Here his chief interest was sailing, and in his star boat, the " Green Hornet, " he gained a reputation as an outstanding sailor by winning many races, in addition to being a member of the Boat Club and the M. E. Club. While he was not among the savoirs, his good sense enabled him to hold up his end of the academic struggles and still observe more than his share of happy hours. Pat looked forward to the " wearin ' o ' the green, " aviation green, that is, after graduation. Murph ' s Irish ancestry showed up in his glib tongue as much as his name. Easy to know, he will be remembered for his smile and ready answers. PARKMAN, OHIO Bob came to Navy by way of the Fleet, where he had served as on ETM 3 c, with a background of three years as an electrical engineer at Fenn College. Calling on this previous experience. Bob found time to keep up on his sleep, his excellent trumpet playing, and last, but not least, his social life. It was a rare weekend that Bob wasn ' t seen around the yard with Annette in tow. Bob was a firm believer in the theory that a person has the greatest equilibrium in the horizontal position, and, as a result, seldom experimented with any other ideas. In spite of the fact that he had played first string basket- ball at Parkman High School (enrollment five boys), here he confined his energies, when aroused, to com- pany sports. Judging by his past. Bob has a bright future in anything he may choose. Catwin C. €tormaMB MIAMI, FLORIDA Before coming to the Academy, Cal had attended Rens- selaer Polytechnic Institute, where he received a degree in chemical engineering. Armed with his knowledge and ability, he had no trouble with academics and was a star man throughout the course. Practically every study pe- riod he could be found lending a helping hand to his classmates in solving their problems. A great lover of music, he had a repertoire that seemed unlimited. He will long be remembered for his magnificent bass voice and his brilliant performances in Musical Club Shows and with the choi r. He not only enjoyed classical music, but swing also, and as a harmony man he was terrific. With his amiable disposition, well-rounded personality, ability, and will to succeed, he will be a success wherever he goes or whatever he does. ti •Mil !Mil Wi 316 w Edward J. €)tth JERSEYVILLE, ILLINOIS E.J. came to Navy determined to make his mark, and a glance at his academic standing will verify that he did. Ed began his Naval career at Northwestern Uni- versity as a mechanical engineer in the NROTC. Four months short of a degree he made the fatal step of coming to Navy. Contrary to popular opinion he did not devote all of his time to academics, but also man- aged to be an active member of the Glee Club, Choir, and the Photo Club. He spent the greater part of the academic year renovating the Naval Academy ' s star boats, and sailing on the varsity sailing team. Ed in- tends to make a career out of the Navy; if his eyes hold out his first choice will be submarines. If not, he will continue to add up figures in the Supply Corps. NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA After spending a short time as an enlisted man in the Navy, this tall southerner decided to postpone his mar- riage long enough to cast his lot with ' 49. A prospective engineer, he had spent a year in study at Tulane and a year at Notre Dame. Aided by this excellent back- ground, though two of his roommates did not persevere, Pat managed to continue on his way to become a suc- cessful naval officer. With studies taking up the greater part of his time, he had little left for his musical career which had been extensive in his pre-Academy days. Now that this voyage is over, Pat intends to enter the submarine service, after taking care of that pretty south- ern belle who has waited so faithfully so long. His ready wit, as well as his ability to listen to the opinions of others, will be appreciated in the silent service. GREAT NECK, LONG ISLAND Ed came to Navy by way of Severn Prep and Hobart College, and so, with a little work, he went on from day to day taking studies in his stride without too much strain. When he left Long Island, he had to give up horseback riding, but he was able to follow his interest in sailing, and many weekends found him on the bay in a yawl. Ed displayed his athletic abilities in football, wrestling, and varsity lacrosse, and did well in spite of the handicap of a bad shoulder. His ability to get things done was exemplified by his excellent job as company representative. His habitual sense of humor and honest sincerity about life ' s more important things have made him duly appreciated by his classmates. As a gentle- man and companion, he was superior. Ed was another man who looked forward to his dolphins. I T A T T A L I O N 317 s I T A T T A L I O N BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA H. B. decided to bring along as many of his old habits as he possibly could when he came to Navy after a year of fraternity life at L.S.U. and a short stay in the Navy, so he played bridge, dragged whenever it was possible, and had his siesta every afternoon. Although when cheering, he could have put many boatswains to shame, in less belligerent moods, his voice was soft. He successfully utilized the gentler voice as a member of the Glee Club, while in the shower, and in pursuit of the ladies. In the line of athletics H. B. chose gym- nastics for building muscle, and tennis and squash for relaxation. H. B. ' s hospitality and good nature should continue to win him new friends, and his perseverance will assure him success in the Fleet. Mlc ' tit. amMct GARETT COUNTY, MARYLAND After three years in the Fleet as an aviation radioman and gunner, Lee came to the Academy with extraordi- nary experiences, six ribbons, and a strong desire to become a Naval officer. His main interests here were company sports, sleeping, and last, but most enjoyable, women. Many hours meant for Math were spent solv- ing the numerous radio difficulties of his friends. His entanglements with women were involved and excit- ing, but Second Class Year he left the ranks of our bachelors. Oakland High School and NAPS gave him a background for tackling the academics, which were never too great an obstacle, and took a minimum of time. As Lee leaves the Academy, his aggressive and healthy outlook, bolstered by loyalty and sincerity, will make him a credit to his friends and the Navy. NOGALES, ARIZONA Business-like, straight forward, and amiable are the words which best describe Ed. He entered the Academy from the Marine Corps, where, as a corporal, he had seen action in the Pacific with the First Division. One of his main interests here was the pistol team which he helped to victory many times during his stay on the Severn. Secondary on his hit parade was his " gym- nasium, " which was open to anyone at any time as long as they didn ' t push a bar bell through a mirror. An ac- tive member of the Photo and Mechanical Engineering Clubs, Ed puttered around the Lab or the shops on Wednesday afternoons devoting his talents to making things he seldom used. He will be remembered by his classmates as a fellow who always had a cheery smile and a welcome " Huhh " whenever he met them in the hall or on the street. 318 DURHAM, SOUTH CAROLINA Taylor came to Navy as a past master at the art of spending life in the horizontal position. After two years of the elementary slipstick course at Duke University, he was well prepared for the course here in Crabtown. During youngster cruise, Rigs picked up the name of Flagboy. Taylor embarked on the maddening whirl of dragging Youngster Year, hardly ever missing a weekend with a sweet southern lass. Flag was active in company sports, participating in soccer and fieldball. His pride was his stamp collection which he enlarged mostly by rummaging through discarded letters for new stamps. When asked if he plans to make the Navy his career, the only answer we could get was " Quien Sabe? " I X T A T T A L I O N DES MOINES, IOWA Phil ' s desk drawer was an excellent biography of his life at the Academy. It contained a rather dusty pair of boxing gloves, numerous pictures of assorted women, a clean wrestling helmet, a " Dear John " letter (in pieces), a Swedish straight razor with a cut-up strop and numerous accompanying bandaids, several " admit to sick bay " slips, an old ball of twine, a note remind- ing him that he must sing bass in the Musical Club Show with the Glee Club, and a reminder from his roommate pleading for a blind drag. Having attended Iowa State College for two happy years, he found academics some- what easier than the other problems confronting him here, and so spent his time reading magazines, writing letters, and holding extra instruction for his two strug- gling wives. MONTBANK, LONG ISLAND " Ring " came to the Academy after a year at VPl for the singular purpose of becoming the best Marine avia- tor this side of anywhere. A Marine junior, Tom braced and glowed happily at any mention of the Corps. To paint a truly accurate picture of him, one had only to point out the quick smile, easy laugh, and unbounded sense of humor which made so many friends and cap- tivated so many drags for him. After women, hunting, fishing, and flying took up most of his interests and energy. His knowledge of and ability to use firearms was always obvious from his hunting successes on leave. Besides the shooting, Tom was active in swimming, la- crosse, and football, in all of which he could always be depended upon to give an excellent performance. His ability to smile in any situation will help make Tom the " best Gyrene aviator ever. " 319 I T A T T A L I O N Calvin ti). giobtirlt OPELOUSAS, LOUISIANA Armed with a year at Southwestern Louisiana Institute, this rebel came from deep in the yam country to pit himself against the rigors of Navy. A specialist in la- crosse, he spent much time wielding a wicked stick in the batt competition, and when not in battle on the lacrosse field, he managed to play a good game of football, and occasionally tried his expert hand with the rifle. Continually kidded about that girl who was al- ways " taking exams, " Cal always countered with re- partee of his own, and usually found himself master of any discussion. Cal ' s four years had color, as were wit- nessed by his varied encounters with the execs and his experience as a ventilating engineer Youngster Cruise. A prospective submarine officer, Cal hopes to skipper his own pigboat someday. Wittiawn W. §luMS, EMI HARTSVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA After two short years at the University of South Caro- lina, Bill entered the Navy in the V-5 program as an aviation cadet. The Air Corps seemed to be right in Bill ' s line, so much so that he decided to make it all or nothing. Following a tour of duty at Bainbridge and a fleet appointment. Bill arrived first on line back in June ' 45. Academics have never seemed to bother this connoisseur of fine mint julips; on the contrary, the only thing that has been on his mind is the flying time he ' s been missing. But when it ' s all over, Bill will be out there flying ' em the way he ' s always wanted to, and below on the ground he ' ll have left a lot of fellows proud in calling him their classmate. UPPER DARBY, PENNSYLVANIA Coming from St. Joseph ' s and Villanova, Pete was a staunch supporter of Upper Darby, and always ready to expound its merits, not the least of which seemed to be the abundance of beautiful women. His wide knowl- edge of seamanship was gained from his favorite hobby of yawl sailing, and his twin nicknames, " Deck-Ape " and " Boats, " were inspired by his love of all things nautical. Out of sailing season, he won numerals in plebe wrestling and spent many afternoons with the company sports squads. His pet expressions were a good guide to his personality: his generosity, " Take two, they ' re small, " and his philosophy " There is such a thing OS a good naval officer. " The sub service will gain a capable mariner in Pete, and he ' s a sure bet to go a long way in the Navy. 320 I MADISON, WISCONSIN Jinx is a name that Bill brought with him from his high school days in Madison, Wisconsin. His V-12 days at Lawrence College gave him a running start on aca- demics and he easily outpaced them the whole way. Knowledge of the outdoors was Bill ' s pride and joy, and the wintery woods about Madison afforded many topics for those Plebe Year themes. Bill ' s calm person- ality proved not only to be of a mental nature, for he had that same calmness as he plinked off the bull in varsity rifle. His curly hair and charming personality always made a hit with the women. Women made a hit with him too, until the Army game of Plebe Year. After that there was but one, and June week of Young- ster Year found him engaged, set for his Navy career. M. M. SthawMiclhcrqcr, Jw. ernawd S€hniehnlti. DETROIT, MICHIGAN A! grew to amazing proportions, especially in his ex- tremities. His size 13 canal boats drew for him the very appropriate nickname of " Shoes " . This moniker fol- lowed him to the campus of the University of Michigan where the hallowed walks echoed back his clopping footsteps for two years. While there. Shoes was ini- tiated into the Theta Theta chapter of Sigma Chi. In his Plebe Year he starred in two sports entirely new to him; soccer and lacrosse. He has won three N ' s In each, while gaining All-Amerlcan honors for three consecu- tive years as goalie for the soccer squad and being elected its captain during first class year. The Berger was equally adept In academics. He is the possessor of a keen mind, a likeable personality, and a walk that defies imitation. NEW YORK, NEW YORK Arriving at USNA via a rather devious route which In- cluded two years In chemistry at Franklin and Marshall and two more In the Air Corps training program, the engineers, and the Navy, Schnie managed to maintain a starring average despite his love for the sack, where he was usually found during study hours. His athletic endeavors included varsity tennis and intramural squash, handball, and volleyball, while an excellent record col- lection, yawl sailing, and candid photography were his pet hobbies. He also devoted his attentions and talents to the fair sex upon occasion, but thus far has avoided all the snares and pitfalls. A member of the French Club, and an after-dinner speaker par excellence (?), Bernle hopes to branch out into ONI or attache duty. I T A T T A L I O N 321 s I X T A T T A L I O N NORWOOD, PENNSYLVANIA From the salty decks of the gunboat Paducah, NAPS sent Leo to us— he was Regular Navy then and always will be. A year at Penn sharpened him for the aca- demics here. His energy always amazed us, for it was shown in many varied activities throughout the Brigade. A vital cog on our Hop Committee for four years, ar- ranging for programs and favors was a labor of love for him. The plebe lacrosse and Junior Varsity soccer teams knew him as a battler, and his managerial abil- ity helped our Varsity basketball teams. Even with his many extra-curricular activities he always found time for dragging— never a dull moment with out Pennsyl- vania representative in the vicinity. Someday a lucky Admiral will have " P. L. " on his staff— then our social slash will really be at home. EVERETT, WASHINGTON In May, 1926, the greatest potential tugboat skipper and member of the V ashington Chamber of Commerce was born. After dragging beautiful women and play- ing basketball and tennis at Everett High and a year in the East at Admiral Farragut, he went on to Washington State, where Roomie was Vice President of his class, an ardent SAE, and last but not least, the best house boy the KKGs ever had. Egroq come to Navy full of a vim and vigor that he has never been able to loose through battles with Moth and Skinny, Newport, Copenhagen, or London. Roomie is a hard working boy who has never let a classmate down in a pinch and one who would, on the bridge of a tugboat or a battleship, be the kind of skipper we ' d all like to serve under. JASPER, ALABAMA Tecumseh Court is a sea of white caps, cheering throats, and blaring trumpets. High on the steel platform he crouches, hillbilly hat jammed over his eyes, up from the Carolina hills to see his Duke team maul the Big Blue. The skit ends, and a roar of approval swells above the grey walls of Bancroft— music sighs into the dusky cor- ners of Dahlgren. In the middle of the floor, sweat gleaming on his brow, bow tie askew, he jitterbugs with his OAO— wind whips the yawl over further. There he stands, both hands gripping the wheel, peering into the blackness to pick out the next buoy. Who is he? Five foot six, the pride of Jasper, the brain of the Bri- gade Activities Committee, he was partial to barbecued ribs, polka-dot bow ties, and a certain little magnolia blossom down ' Bama way. Who? Just call him " Jimbo. " an % Ol lied kjldifl 322 M PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA " My head is bloody but unbowed. " Neither the aca- demic squalls nor a tempestuous love-life succeeded in washing Harry overboard, though his ship was bat- tered by both. His conscientiousness steered him safely through the former and, apparently. Divine Guidance through the latter. After class he was invariably the first up the ladder to grab for the mail, and if he spotted a Scottish postmark he felt the extra HP ex- pended were worth it. He swung a mean sabre in the fencing loft, knew medical terms considerably longer than four letters, spouted Shakespeare, giving the Bard some competition now and then with his own epics, and analyzed his inner emotions with the help of mood cycle graphs. Harry ' s design features are a sometimes slightly harried look, a prankish sense of humor, and a genuine consideration for others. m 6 I T A T T A L I O N « Xoiffss . Shea, Jr. WESTPORT, CONNECTICUT A graduate of Admiral Farragut Academy, where he had played football, boxed, and edited the school news- paper and yearbook. Lew managed to get in two years of V-12 and NROTC at Trinity and Brown before Navy. After one session of football Plebe Year, Lew decided that his feet were not made for the wear and tear in- volved on the gridiron, so he switched to crew where he has come up to be one of the mainstays of the squad. The " Tiger, " famed for his enormous bi ceps and appetite to match, was an avowed bachelor, but it was always our contention that he who was acclaimed " the handsomest boy in Fairfield County " could not last too long after graduation. £€hard WL Sheppc QUANTICO, VIRGINIA The most bowlegged man in Bancroft ' s history came to us as an ex-Navy man and an ex-Marine. That old adage of once a Marine, always a Marine seemed to hold true, for Dick is headed for the air arm of the Corps. His father was a Navy doctor, so Dick could claim no town as his own, but what he gained in travel more than made up for his loss of a one-town spirit. With a smile on his face and one eye on the sack, Dick tripped through the toughest days, only complaining, when he got but one letter. When he could be pried from his bed, he was usually found diving or back- stroking in the pool, or playing batt football or lacrosse. As a member of the Brigade Activities Committee, he- helped make the pep rallies the thing to see, and he also helped put over a Musical Club Show or two. 323 I T A T T A L I O N £tM€fctM 91 %. Shine SOUTH BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS This blonde Bostonian left high school to join the Navy, where he spent two and a half years as a submariner before shaking ofF some of the salt and trading his bell- bottoms for a visored cap. His determination to make good got him through the entrance exams and later helped him stand in the top half of the class, but his abilities were not limited to academics, for he got his title " Champ, " and his N by his potent use of boxing gloves and he occasionally stepped out of the ring to wield a wicked driver on the batt golf team. Second to collecting those daily letters from the blonde Norwegian New Yorker, Gene collected foreign hotel registers, no- tably from Panama. After six and a half years of Navy Blue, Gene has decided to try his hand in another branch of the service, the Marines. offl«vM 0t. Stniih ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO Don spent two years at New Mexico Military Institute and two more in the Army before he came to Crab- town wearing his khakis and a Good Conduct Medal and eager to learn about the Navy. Smitty ' s mild man- ner and soft voice did not give evidence of his indus- trious nature, but his academic record and an " N " for his crew efforts gave evidence that he worked hard and well. He was always good for a witty remark when the going was rough, and on weekends he could usually be found at the hop either escorting one of his best num- bers or snaking dances with someone else ' s weekend joy. Don wants destroyer duty after graduation, but whether he gets it or not he seems assured of a success- ful career. ' Mfnwncr £. Saniih ALMA, WEST VIRGINIA Homer would have been happier as a major league ball player, but he still took Navy Tech in stride with no trouble from the Academic Departments. The trials of Navy life left him disillusioned at times, but he al- ways snapped back and went on with the job at hand. There was something of the gambler in his personality, and there were few " sure " things that he would pass up. He would argue about anything that was brought up with anyone who would argue, and defeat was un- known to him— his motto was " If you can ' t be logical, be loud. " Sports held his attention when the current Esquire had been read from cover to cover, and one could always talk him into a game of handball or foot- bail. He always played to win, but, win or lose, he always finished smiling. 324 U)a9fnc JD. Smith REXBURG, IDAHO Our great Northwest had no better supporter than this hunting and fishing fan who constantly i ept us in touch with the superiority of his so-called " God ' s Country. " Although basically an inlander, somewhere along the line that went from Mackay to two semesters of engi- neering at Idaho to several years in the Air Corps this tall blonde acquired a knowledge of the Navy exten- sive enough to rate the title of " Chief, " and thorough enough to enable him to choose subs as his choice of duty. He ran near the top with the harriers as well as being a mainstay on intramural lacrosse and softball teams, and was also a top notch starboat sailor for the varsity, Smitty ' s captivating personality entranced his many female friends and was a great asset on liberty in foreign ports. J ofr rf 91 Smith HINSDALE, ILLINOIS Then there was always the farmer— the one and only Smitfy. Born at a very early age in Chicago, Illinois, he began to make his mark in life early. From the very first he was interested in military life. A Star Scout in the Boy Scouts, he later went to Onarga Military Acad- emy and graduated after four years of work as Cadet Colonel. Bob, in his years at the Academy, did every- thing a midshipman can do. He and " Flag Bag " (the wife) dragged almost every girl from Annapolis south to Norfolk and even a few further south. He sailed on the star-boat team and kicked a mean soccer ball. Farmer looks to the Sub Service and if he does as well in the Fleet as here, he ' ll do as in the post; he ' ll go as high as anyone can. Cornelius S. Snftdqwass MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA Strib, who lived several years in England just before en- tering the Academy, will be best remembered for his delightful sense of humor and quietly confident manner. Though thoroughly indoctrinated in matters naval, he retained much of that easy-going attitude he acquired as a Delta Chi at Lafayette. As an athlete, Strib demon- strated his prowess to best advantage on the links across the river, always turning in a low card for the varsity, and rounded out as a mainstay on a championship com- pany soccer team. Known as a Dago Savoir, Strib had a smattering of German and other European languages he picked up on the continent. Though not a Red Mike, Strib rarely dragged, due to his high standards and the Executive Department ' s consistent refusal to allow him to use his deluxe convertible when escorting. I T A T T A L I O N 325 I X T A T T A L I O N Demmh C. Slaafill SHELBYVILLE, TENNESSEE This fair-haired rebel brought with him on air of mild manners and good humor when he arrived at Navy. His big heartedness and constant willingness to do a favor made him everybody ' s friend. Stan could always be found exercising in the afternoons; if not swimming, he would be playing company soccer or fieldball with plebe and batt wrestling rounding out his athletic ac- tivities. His active participation in the Mechanical Engi- neering Club claimed a lot of time, but didn ' t keep Stan from enjoying dragging on the weekends. He worked hard for his gains, yet did not drive himself to ex- tremes, and so earned the rank of savoir, without the stigma of a slash. The will and ambition to complete any assignment should lead him to success in his chosen career. M. . Stromhcrg, Jr. SALEM, MASSACHUSETTS Down from Salem, the home of clipper ships, witches, and Bowditch, Ham plans to navigate a long Naval ca- reer. After winning the Dartmouth Award for all around activity in high school, he went in V-12 to Harvard, where he lettered in football, and made the " marks of a gentleman, " graduating as an Ensign, USNR. Ham always had a cheery " Hello " as he walked through the yard with that characteristic roll. He was well known for his singing voice which was never heard in key, al- though he had a fine appreciation of music. When the varsity 150-pound football team was organized Young- ster Year, he was first string right guard, and after two years of undefeated competition, he was elected cap- tain for First Class Year. Ham resigned his commission to come to Navy, and he goes back to the Fleet with his future success assured. James M. Siuhsiad WINONA, MINNESOTA Winona, Minnesota ' s, contribution to the Navy comes in a large package, directly from high school. Stubby is the nickname and it fits him to a tee, one hundred ninety pounds of solid muscle. Popular in his company for good humor and easy-going manner, Jim was also skilled in the ways of the balsa butcher. What he couldn ' t do with a block of wood and a sharp knife couldn ' t be done. This and his interest in all things me- chanical led him early in to the Mechanical Engineering Club. He loves sailing and was skilled enough to hold a place on the starboat sailing team. As for love in- terests. Stub says nothing, but he wears a wide grin at the mention of Vassar College. Chief among his de- sires is to earn a pair of wings. Ike I to A 326 ■ POCATELLO, IDAHO Whatever you wanted to know about potatoes, this walking spud factory could tell you, and all of his an- swers were from personal experience. His natural ten- dencies for the stage made him a mainstay in the Mas- queraders and Musical Clubs productions. One of the smarter members of our class, he never let women bother him— " Why drag when you can see three movies a weekend? " was his motto. In the afternoons, Pete would either be in a handball court or up in the wres- tling loft, but never in the sack— proving that potatoes help make a man and good proof he is, too. After grad- uation, Pete is headed for the Air Corps and it ' s a bet he takes a full collection of A! Jolson records up with him on every flight. I T A T T A L I O N i contei i« Siiibbyi! woso Whol li« lings me- gineeiinj oholJo love ' liJe s ' i " § hitip M Clioffvi, Jr. LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS After four months ' training for the Army Air Corps at the University of Arkansas, Phil received his appointment to Annapolis and gladly swapped services, coming to NAPS late in 1944. His one great love, baseball, showed itself Plebe Summer when he pitched for the 49ers— from then on he was ole Diz. He won his first N Youngster Year and was a mainstay on Navy ' s pitching staff for three years. With academics, it took diligent study and perseverance, but he always scored o win. He tackled difficulties with a determination sel- dom seen— for this and many other qualities he has gained the respect of his classmates. According to Phil, there ' s nothing like the Navy. He ' s for staying in and becoming an aviator or a submariner. Hawwy §1. htMwb r, Jr. MADISON, CONNECTICUT Along with his expressed liking for stogies, Tom In- herited a natural bent for the Navy from his seagoing forebears and made his way to Annapolis via St. Albans in Washington, D. C. Long Island Sound was the birth- place of his love for sailing. He was not long in obtain- ing his yawl command, and between the yawls and the starboat sailing team, he spent many happy hours away from the struggle of academics. No slouch when it came to weekends, Tom took them all in stride with a strong inclination toward Sweet Briar. After graduation, it ' ll be just that certain girl and then Naval Aviation, with a gradual fading into the past of the causes for that often repeated statement, " I ' ve been had! " 327 s I T A T T A L I O N JACKSON, MICHIGAN A Navy junior. Jack could always claim many places as home, but most often he sang the praises of sunny Cali- fornia and the island paradise of Hawaii. Lacking pre- vious college, he had his trials with the academics, but never let them get him down. A fine athlete, he was especially adept at boxing, as many sadder and wiser opponents will testify. Never one to ignore the charms of a languid smile, he was well known as a connoisseur of beauty until the middle of Plebe Year, when he was removed from circulation by a cute brunette from Var- sar. His repertoire of jokes was widely known, mostly for its considerable range— from crudest corn to clever- est subtlety. Quiet and unassuming. Jack was a valua- ble friend, always ready with sensible advice when needed or to help out in the pinches. WESTFIELD, NEW JERSEY Formerly a fire-controlman, Bob came to Navy by way of Navy prep schools, and, although well prepared for the entrance exams, he found that constant hard study- ing was his guide academically for his four years. Though studies took up much of his time, he still found time for an active athletic schedule. His experienced toe was well used on the soccer field, and in football and track, he made full use of his endurance. Occa- sionally he found free time to devote to his sketching and serve as a smiling host on the Reception Commit- tee. A member of that happy group who were not settled with OAO ' s, Clint believed in variety in his fre- quent dragging. Having seen surface duty on a de- stroyer and a gunboat. Bob now plans to enter the sub- marine service, where his pleasant nature and smile will be welcome additions. SAN JUAN, PUERTA RICO Wally was a converted " Rambling Wreck from Georgio Tech " who joined us to become a Gyrene. A native of San Juan, he constantly amazed us with his perfect English and slashed us with his 4.0 Bull. His ambition to become a Naval Officer guided him in high school where he was president of his class. Prepping in Mary- land introduced him to his favorite sport at Navy, la- crosse. His speed and aggressiveness on the field were never without his smile, a smile recognized by many throughout the Brigade as the key to his fine person- ality. Wally ' s interest lay in the finer things of life, poetry, etc. The etceteras flocked from all over but mostly from the southland, as far as San Juan. The Marines have taken one of our finest friends, but they have found a fine officer and a gentleman. 328 SPRINGFIELD, ILLINOIS Bob was an outstanding product of Lincoln ' s home town, where, in addition to being an Eagle Scout, he had also served a hitch as a Sea Scout. After spending nine months in Bullis Prep, he had, as we found, several very attractive belies in Ye Olde Maryland. Most of his studying was done horizontally, with the aid of his distinctive green visor, and his favorite hobby was hit- ting the sack. Another hobby was keeping his excel- lent scrap-book up to date. Besides being an active member in both the Mechanical Engineering and French Clubs, Bob was also a mainstay in intramural sports, playing company soccer and fleldball, as well as batt lacrosse. Bob ' s versatility should be a valuable asset when he becomes one of the vital links in Naval avia- tion, in which he has long been interested. £cnnfBa ' d 91 t o f, Jr. CINCINNATI, OHIO Mike (Meat Packer) Vogt, whose name was really Leon- ard Vogt, Jr., came to our ranks via Elder High and the Brice Hill tennis courts. Prepping for Navy Tech, Lenny attended Xovier University in Cincy and then went to IIT where he acquired the only major letter ever awarded a tennis player at IIT. Here also he acquired Nancy, who shared his time with tennis racquets and the text books. With this preparation and Nancy, Mike didn ' t do too badly for himself at Navy. Lettering in tennis his Plebe and Youngster Years, he captained the team his Second Class Year, as well as playing squash with the best of them. A very enterprising young man, Vogt ' s small stores will be famous the world over if ever by chance he leaves the Navy. OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA Roy came up from the sea in a submarine to exchange his Quartermaster ' s rating for the rates of a Navy fresh- man, after two years duty in the Southwest Pacific had given him the perfect background. A firm believer in physical fitness, he found that being on the radiator squad didn ' t allow him to satisfy the great appetite he had developed on good sub service chow, so he became a member of Navy ' s Poughkeepsie championship crew. When rowing wasn ' t in season. Jay Ray spent some of his spare moments doctoring up his uniforms to look a little saltier and more dapper than the rest of ours, and on weekends nothing could keep him from dragging his queen. Ray is assured success by his ready smile and winning personality, and is sure to be remembered by all of us as a gentleman and a friend. I T A T T A L I O N 329 I T A T T A L I O N Jiwm M . Webber SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA To the cold grey walls of Navy came a chap with a sunny disposition acquired in sunny California, whose only gloom occurred when the fair name of California was impugned. Early Plebe Year, Jim began making out watch bills instead of standing watches, and he re- tained that position for three years, thus earning the distinction of being one of the few wheels who could go through three years of the system without standing a watch. During his few waking hours, besides making out a watch bill or two, his time was divided between the latest Book-of-the-Month Club selection and his fre- quent, more-or-less successful dragging pursuits. Any- one who wanted to beef about the system could always find a sympathetic listener in Webb, although the con- versation usually ended up on the glories of Cali- fornia. KERRVILLE, TEXAS On the day Don entered Navy, he is supposed to have said " Hmmm. " Along with three volumes of Texas his- tory, he brought the nickname " Moose, " which he had acquired playing football in Texas. Moose did well in academics, but they were never one of his main in- terests. He has been known to open three books and then lie down until the urge to study passed. On the gridiron it was a different story, for he was active in the line of Navy ' s varsity football team during each of his four years here. When football season passed he devoted his free time to his favorite pastime— women. More than one was charmed by his Texas drawl. Al- ways easy-going, friendly, and sincere. Moose will be remembered by everyone as one of the swellest guys they have ever known. CHICAGO, ILLINOIS Dick arrived with the first members of our class, via the USMC. Taking the rigors of Plebe Summer in stride, and battling the Bull Department with great gusto, he was ready to establish a name for himself. Perilous Math P-works, themes proofread by a rotund North Caro- linian, CIS ' s and rotten football tickets were the total of his trying moments. His pastimes included keeping up a large correspondence. Glee Club, Musical Club Shows, piano, and an occasional vocal session with the boys. The way Dick could wreck a serving of ham- burgers and spaghetti would please any cook. His free time was spent close to the radiator and that inner- spring as he quietly solved his problems in peaceful slumber. Those days are over now, but Dick will get what he wants from life in his own inimitable way. 330 i 1, ¥10 the [i(le,oiiJ (lewoi )yi Malli ill Co(o- the told teepinj icfll Club wilk ll " oi hoin- oi inner- jeocelul will 9 ' ' (oy. marry H. tVhiiitcscy INDO, CALIFORNIA Barry came to us after three years in the Navy with eternal praise for Naval Aviation. His abilities as a short haired violinist not only brought his Stradivarlus into operation for four years with the orchestra, but he wore out more strings playing the violin during exam weeks and after P works. Barry was a talented music lover and could identify anything from jazz to classics. This handsome Irishman had a way with the women and held a firm belief that dragging was the best relief for menetal strain. In the fall he devoted his time to the managerial duties of the 150 pound football team where he made an excellent record. His aim for graduation is to be flying wing and wing with his brother Gene. C. §i»bcrl U)hitc MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA Although his was from the frozen snowland of Minne- apolis, CR has shown a great liking for a warmer tem- perature provided by closed windows during Maryland winters. A devout advocate of soccer during his Young- ster and Plebe Years, he found the spirit waning after numerous periods of exhaustion due to the aimless chas- ing of the ball. Bob snowed his wife plebe year by rattling off meaningless Spanish phrases until the latter began to understand some of them. He never failed to amaze us by dragging beautiful women with scads of money. Although a very devout Catholic, he secretly worshipped Eros, a small statue standing in Piccadilly Circus. All in all. Bob should be successful in his chosen career as a Naval aviator. ATHENS, GEORGIA Jack wanted to be an aeronautical engineer, but quickly changed his mind when he received an appoint- ment to the Academy. Academically, he followed the path of least resistance, and invariably spent the eve- nings at pursuits more pleasant than studying. He pos- sessed an amazing degree of aptitude for all things mechanical, and spent many an afternoon at his favor- ite hobby, model building. J. H., like all southerners, welcomed an opportunity to refight the battles of the Civil War— any reference to Sherman ' s visit to Georgia immediately set the discussion on the heated and violent track. His usual carefree manner changed to a serious one when he was confronted with responsibility. The ability he possesses to face all tasks with a wide smile will undoubtedly be useful to him as a Naval officer. I T A T T 4 L I O N 331 I X T A T T A L I O N MAPLEWOOD, WISCONSIN Ziggy decided to give up the easy life of a civilian for the rigors of Navy while studying chemical engineering at Marquette University. Mark ' s two greatest interests were sailing and football. After a year of intense re- ducing, he got down to 150 pounds and spent two suc- cessful seasons with the mighty mites. The fairer sex always went for Mark ' s well groomed, wavy hair, but he was happier listening to sweet music and writing a certain gal back home on Saturday nights than drag- ging. Mark was an active member of the Mechanical Engineering and Radio Clubs. Zig ' s plans after grad- uation include getting married and making a career of Naval Aviation. His winning personality and natural ability will assure him success in his chosen profession. 332 §Q Msh re I Raymond E. Adams Gilbert N. Albrecq Edward L. Alexander Murry M. Alexander Carroll W.

Some from college, some from the ward- rooms, most from the enlisted ranks, we gathered forces gradually, bringing in those individual ex- periences and traits that were to influence our class as a whole. For three days we were exam- ined by the medics, who checked us from trunk to keelson with finetooth combs. The inevitably necessary forms filled out, we paid our money and got in return a pair of dark glasses and the ill-famed $100 haircut. Those necessary prelimi- naries dispensed with, we gathered in Mem Hall for the great moment— and we were sworn in as Midshipman, U. S. N. We had made it! for the well-dressed midshipman The big moment Sfencilling seemed to fake forever PLEBE SUMMER Our first move after being sworn in was to draw our initial outfit from the stores. Loaded down with white works, skivvies, and all the other nec- essary equipment, we drew our boxed outfits. Through clothes, bedding, and other things we plunged, armed only with stencils, ink, and a toothbrush— emerging after three days with sten- cil ink on everything. Our singing of " those laun- dry number blues " was interrupted only by the everlasting tailor shop parties, inspections, and in- oculation parties, where we were respectively suited, told that our lockers were stowed wrong, and pumped full of antitoxins. Eventually we started on our first day of classes with little knowl- edge of what was in store. Not bad at all! Inspection— the first of many Lockers had to be perfect Prof. Sazama— " Pap Sbeei Pappy " Prove you ' ve got muscles One of our most constant contacts during Plebe Summer was with the Physical Training Department, or " torture " department as we were soon to know it. Under the guidance of " Pap Sheet Pappy " we learned, and exercised at, stoop falls, squat jumps, and all the other forms of " jerks. " We branched out from these in short order, however, moving on to the various specialties, such as wrestling, boxing, fencing, soccer, and hand-to-hand combat. We took our first tests over the obstacle course and swimming courses, faithfully promising ourselves halfway through each that never again would a cigarette touch our lips. n ' fle kett Sfraighfen those backs! f ' i s: Hl mI£ ni ■ m -M minr " H v- Learning ihe intricacies of a turn with the help of the blocks We readily discovered that everything at Navy starts with a forma- tion, and that most things end with one. From our first meal, we got into the habit of chopping out to the terraces in shined shoes and fresh whites; it soon became second nature. % Scaling o rifle became tiresome m i M Warden Field— and Wednesday afternoon 379 Ready on the firing line Once each week we received training in the use of small arms on the ranges at North Severn. First to the seawall to embark in the motor launches, then off to the landing to the cry of " Don ' t disembark until I say disembark! Disem- bark! " By phases ranging from the basic con- struction of a rifle and safety precautions to skeet shooting, we marked our progress as marksmen. Under the guidance of Marines, whose greatest phobia was expressed upon hearing the " Halls of Montezuma, " we learned to shoot twenty- two ' s, Springfields, pistols, carbines, and Go- rands, firing for expert ratings. What time was not spent on the firing line was passed in the butts pulling and pasting, trying to keep up with the shooters, and hoping that the backstops were as substantial as they looked. Our biggest trou- bles came with the rain, for the notorious Mary- land weather always seemed to choose our day for ordnance as the day when the torrents would come and the earth would become a soggy sponge. Rifle range, here we come 380 ; One of our main diversions during our period of indoctrination came with the drills of the Sea- manship Department. In this department we started to learn the basic elements of seamanship by pulling oars and racing cutters on the Severn. From cutters we went to the jackstays where we learned how to tie our shoelaces and anything Flag hoisf drills We learned fo soil Pull and Paste else that needed tying, in the approved Navy way. Once through with knots we went back to boats. Knockabouts provided many drills that were fun, for sailing, even in a drill, was an interesting and diverting pastime. From knockabouts we went to the rigging loft of Luce Hall to become ac- quainted with signal flags, semaphore and blin- ker—all forms of visual communication. Our skill developed as time went on, and we were able to read signals of all sorts at the end of our visit there. Then back to the sea again, this time in sailing whaleboats. The infricacies of seamen ' s knots Buf we jusf finished PT! One of the most constant diversions of the sum- mer was the inter- battel ion competition to deter- mine which batt would have the extra Saturday of liberty. To win this and to get our recreation, we participated in the sports program, each man contributing where he could, infantry, too, was graded in this, and for the winning company the long hours of drill paid ofF. The biggest celebra- tion of the summer came on 16 August, when we rang the Japanese Bell, painted Tecumseh, and filled the court with home-made confetti in honor of V-J Day. We were now at peace.

We had had a period of indoctrination. We had made friends and started to form the bonds that would even- tually unite us under the heading of classmates. We had learned much, and were ready, we hoped, to start facing our dual job of the year ahead— being plebes, and facing the Academic Departments with their gradebooks. The dreaded day approached r Plebe Ho! And so it started— our own private war with the system and the rigors of Plebe Year. All Plebe Summer we had heard veiled threats of what would happen to ' 49 when Plebe Year started. Life rapidly took on a more complex aspect than even that of Plebe Summer, for we now had ACADEMICS to contend with, to say nothing of the assignments given by the upperclassmen.

Our activities were varied, but ail pointed to one goal— indoctrination. We learned the meanings of RHIP in all forms. We found out answers to questions ranging from the displacement of a mine-sweeper to the names of the sister ships. We even learned how to manage the starched collar, Windsor knot, and the de-linting of blues. Sunday nights, we put on the traditional " Hdppy Hour " . Then, too, we were having our times with those academics, in our cloud there was but one silver lining— Plebe Christmas, which had to come some- time, but seemed so far ofF and unattainable.

" We soon found that with the end of Plebe Sum- mer our days of dragging " Miss Springfield " were not past, and that she was to be an ever-present companion for the next four years. Twice a week we practiced, and once a week we showed off to the public on Worden Field, where we ironed out the kinks under the guidance of the upper- class, who were always only too willing to help. Sometimes we had distinguished visitors for our weekly marches, and once we were the visitors— p-rading in Washington to help honor CinCPac. But there were bright sides, too— one of the first tokens that told us ' 49 was a class was the elec- tion of the Class Crest Committee, and the subse- quent picking of our class crests. We chose care- fully, for we would be wearing it many years, and we wanted one of which we could be proud. Our first step towards unity as a class had been taken— we were now ' 49 in truth as well as the records. Spirit for the Army Came was high The guiding lights of Plebe Fall were the football weekends. We boarded the excursion boats to go up to Baltimore and cheer the Blue and Gold with great feelings of emancipation, for we were to have LIBERTY! The only bad features were the marches from the boat to the field— but the games and liberties were worth it! Our final trip in the boats took us to Philadelphia where we were to see our first Army Game— that cold, cold morn- ing getting off the deck and dressed seemed al- most impossible, but the tension and anticipation were enough to snap us to. The biggest and best time of all, though, came when we started that eleven-day heaven— Christmas Leave! We were all kings, and the cares and worries of Plebe Year were forgotten. We could laugh at the horrors of the system and occupy ourselves with only one thing— how to cram as much fun as possible into a week and a half. By " Bay Belle " to Balfimore Who ' s cold? Cbrisfmas and freedom That firsf sef of finals Vox Pop gave life to the Dark Ages Too soon it was all over, and we returned to stare our first set of rivers in the face. There would be seven more, but the first set was enough for some. We counted casualties, bid goodbye to those who were shipping over to the " USS Great Outside, " and started into the Dark Ages, where there were no football trips, or anything else, to break the monotony. Then, suddenly, came 100th Night, when we were first class and kings of Ban- croft for one glorious evening. The strain was easing and spring was approaching. Our first set of Dark Ages was over. The coat didn ' t fit, but it felt good " On top " for one night Suddenly it was spring, and once again we come to life. Our first chance to drag came with the Musical Club Show, and we set out to prove, suc- cessfully, that ' 49 dragged the most 4.0 queens of any class at Navy. It wasn ' t all gravy, though. Some of us joined at an early age that great Navy athletic team, the " Flying Squadron, " of which we were to be steady members for the rest of our days. Then, suddenly, from the far distant future, it appeared— June Week. Our second set of rivers was over and we were almost free men. It was agreed upon all as the best part of Plebe Year, for, with our drags and lib- erty, what more could we want? ' 47 graduated —we were sorry to see friends go, but there were many for whom our eyes were dry.

With Plebe Year past, and June Week and Youngster Leave but glowing memories now, we returned to Navy and started on our first sea duties as midshipmen. Youngster cruise was here at last, and the Washington and North Carolina lost no time in showing us how happy they were to have us aboard. From that first fate- ful morning we gained a rapidly increasing knowledge of " turn to " in all its forms. We had gunnery classes and drills, and daily General Quarters. As our knowledge of the problems of every- day seamanship aboard ship increased, so did our respect for the methods used to accomplish certain ends. We were profoundly impressed with the efficiency of shipboard life. Commander Quocfeenbush helped teach us the duties of side-boys When the stack needed paint, we were there Movies and mail -receiving them was a science Our worldly goods There were times when home seemed far away mi There was brass fo polish . . lines to handle and more brass . koine Our days were full on cruise. What time was not occupied by classes and drills was given to turn to ' s or watches, with the result that from the morn- ing scrub down until knock off work in the eve- ning we were never still, and the nights were filled with watches. Holystones, scrubbers, chip- ping hammers, scrapers, wirebrushes, and bright work polish all became as familiar to us as our own names, and their use became second nature. Friday became the day we learned to dread most with field day soon our major hate. Under the none-too-lenient eye of the first class, who super- vised thoroughly, we kept our spaces clean and prayed for liberty to come as soon as possible. The 40 mm ' s knew us well . . . The 20 ' s weren ' f far behind 391 Ancienf Indian femple Who ' s anxious fo gef ashore? The highlights of cruise were the liberties in our ports of call. We first invaded Newport for a weekend of time off to see New England. Then to the Caribbean for two weeks of opera- tions, returning to Norfolk, New York, and finally up the bay to Annapolis, where we changed first class and spent the weekend seeing the Severn from the sea. Then, on the second half of cruise, we hit our first foreign port— Panama. It was interesting to see the Panama Canal and the various installations, but for most of us the im- mediate attraction were the cities of Colon and Cristobal, where the Chicago Bar and the George Washington Hotel provided entertain- ment and reloxation. For those who were capable bargainers, and for those who were willing to try, Panama provided a fine proving ground for their abilities. Then on to stops in Guantanamo, where we unmercifully bombarded Culebra, and New York— civilization! The " shuffer bugs " were in their glory «i««i The canfinas fascinafed us i The porch of the George Washington Hotel had its attractions, too It didn ' t look like the streets at home Ace Bougfifon mc ' s at one of the happy hours Many were the odd tasks we were called upon to perform while on cruise. Our ingenuity as well as that of the bo ' suns, was often taxed to the limit by some tasks, such as cleaning the stacks in white works. As well as our regular details, there was always something special that We stayed in trim even at sea . . . needed doing, such as stack cleaning, fueling, or loading stores. Our life was varied at all times, and soon the only thing we were ever really interested in became how to find the time and a place to sleep. Lunch hour, dinner hour, any time when not turned to or on watch became . one way or another our time for forty winks. Nights were given to two details, one sleeping, and the other standing watches. Our ability to nap became amazing, and we learned to sleep through the noisiest disturbance with ease. Down the ladder . .

Scarcely had we shaken the salt from our whites and scraped the barnacles from our sea legs when we were caught up in the rush again. Classes, formations, all caught up with us and once more we were definitely at Navy— with one great change— we were Youngsters! Gone were the days of plebedom, and now we were on the other end of the rope. We moved into our new rooms, wondering at how we had ever thought either them or our lockers too small. feiitle h all this mine?

Watching cruise box races, games of " cupsies " , and the wonderful idea of carrying on in the messhall— all these were ours in which to participate, and participate we did, as young- sters before us had. We found that a catnap during study hours was conducive to a better feeling, when the academics would let us. Permission to come aboard, sir? A locDonough Hall saw our first all-class bop The lasf rally before Army Army Game spirit was spontaneous There were some bright moments in our lives, too. Dragging as often as the monthly insult would permit filled our times. Weekends never seemed as good as when some sweet young thing shared them with us.

Yawl dragging was a new experience With spring again came a reawakening of our lives. Once more we P-raded each week to re- mind us that we occasionally did have to " march like the infantry. " It became hard to study with spring in the air, and more and more our thoughts headed from steam and skinny toward that to which a young man ' s fancy lightly turns with the end of winter. Every weekend the bay was covered with wind-filled sails, for yawl time had come again, and we took our drags out for afternoons with the wind and spray in our faces. With every dragging weekend came the poor unfortunate who found that his blind date with looks, money, and personality would have to own a mint to ofFset her other qualities— and he was seldom allowed to escape without a re- minder that his misfortune had been observed and appreciated. June Week was just around the corner, and our first European Cruise was coming up soon. Even our fourth set of rivers staring us in the face didn ' t frighten us very much. • i ' ■ .■ V ,1, { ' : ' , -rr,, „ ' .•, ' ;, ;,, ,• L • ' •mo « !. u k . . . and those everlasting P-rades We hif the wafer unfastened ourselves and escaped . to the questionable safety of a life raff All spring we had been getting tasks of indoc- trination for aviation cruise— new insurance poli- cies where Uncle Sam paid the premiums, forms regarding the disposition of effects, and lectures on what to do in almost any case. Coupled with these lectures were the very practical " dunking drills, " where we were given practice in what to do when a plane hit the water— taken in dive- bomber skeletons, crane - manipulated, and dropped into the Severn. By this time exams had passed and June Week was here. Our first June Week one - class hop was scheduled, and we danced in the Hawaiian setting for one perfect n ight. To be sure, we were reminded constantly that we were still at Navy, but with liberty as long as we had, who cared? Our seven days were over too soon, and we said " good hunting " to 48-A, packed our seabags, kissed our girls goodbye, and went out to the Randolph and Kearsarge, where a summer of flying awaited us. A threat even in June Week The Youngster Hop was a highlight 48-A took the oath and we became second classmen It was no time of the morning to be going anywhere Up the ladder to " home " nf ' k And so once again we went " down to the sea in ships, " with June Week behind and September leave a bright spot on the horizon. This time it was different, however; there were no night watches, we did not turn to, and our time was our own when not at classes or drills. To be sure, there were engineering and seamanship phases, but our main duty was flying. Besides, we were headed for parts unknown, and the prospect of European liberty was interesting.

Our memories of Edinburgh were mixed— fish and chips, the small pubs, the timeless magnificence of the Castle, the Royal Mile, and Holyrood, the beauty of the parks, the shops on the new side of Princess Street, the friendliness and generosity of the Scots. % Liberty party ashore The American ' s own " Good Neighbor Policy " Gofeborg Waterfront The canal lent a feeling of serenity to the city The eternal bicycles in Copenhagen We full-dressed ship for the 4th of July SwwcJi From the land of the tweed, the scotch, and the flag, we went on to the land of the mid-night sun— Sweden. Here we found a country that was more modern than almost any other. With its clean, new - looking cities, many amusement parks, and beautiful girls, Sweden seemed a veritable mecca for we who had spent our days looking at water. From Goteborg, where the ships anchored, some went to Stock- holm, where we found the same things —prosperity, cleanliness, and progres- siveness. From Liseburg to the Tivoli we played and relaxed. Some went to Copenhagen, where, although the prosperity was less, the spirit was the same.

Here we found seaside resorts and a traditional British naval station, and while those at one visited the HtAS Nelson the others visited the HMS Victory and a town hit by the horrors of war. London ihe beaufiful Changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace St. Paul ' s Cathedral There was much for us to see, wher- ever we went. The famous churches of London, Westminster Abbey, the Tow- er, Windsor Castle, Parliament, Tra- falgar Square, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, Piccadilly Circus, and all the other places we had read about. We talked with anybody we could— from the pub owner to the " Bobby " , and learned to appreciate a few of the things that made England. ti 1 The English countryside was a thing of beauty Horse guard at Whitehall Westminster Abbey The guide lectures us at Stonehenge Stonehenge ibtjijri J I Cake for fhe first midshipman fo land aboard fhe Kearsarge Baskefball on ihe Randolph ' s hangar deck There was always iime for bridge •.- x- - ' - ' - « .- CTl«y A destroyer comes alongside fo fuel Luke and his boys give out at a happy hour We left Europe with a feeling of regret tempered with an- ticipation, for we were homeward bound.

Amiracks hit the beach The time was drawing near when we hit Norfolk for the first time and transferred from the carriers to the APA ' s New Kent and Noble for Ca- mid training. We found our quar- ters roomy but soon they were filled with groups of cadets and midship- men starting to get acquainted. The same hopes and fears, love of lib- erty, and dislike of water hours be- longed to both of us, and we soon learned to respect and like the Army almost to a man. Our time was spent observing or doing to give us a basic idea of what goes on in amphibious warfare, and we became acquainted with some of the problems and some of their solutions.

Our new rates, radios, taking over the end of a table, indoctrinating the plebes, made the increased burden of academics sit a little less heavily on our bowed shoulders. We had bade farewell to the Dago Department, and had, instead, gotten ordnance to insure no idle moments. More than ever before, our slipsticks became our constant companions. As second classmen we found our- selves with more responsibility in the Brigade or- ganization. Among other things, we began to worry about muster sheets from the other point of view.

They provided a break that caused almost as much relief in its anticipa- tion as in its execution. Football games during the fall made the weekends high spots, and the lib- erties in Baltimore and Philadelphia relieved much of the tension. Later in the year, as spring finally came along, we repeated our fall habits and made good use of our rates by dragging. Sun- day afternoons became devoted to sailing and picnics. Fall and spring we earned our govern- ment-paid insurance by dual flight instruction. N3N ' s and PBY ' s provided, respectively, our train- ing in the coupes and trucks of Naval Aviation.

Navigation was the new arrival, and no longer could we stand and chuckle as the first class went over to Luce Hall with sad faces, piles of books, and steam kits. Steam, too, became more involved as enthalpy, entropy, and Mollier charts entered the picture to plague our lives, and the Juice Department, not to be outdone, coun- tered with Kirchoff ' s laws, polyphase circuits, and the mys- teries of AC and DC electricity.

Fueling from a fanker Our first taste of a destroyer Engineering watches at the bus panel Making a salinity test Sunsighfs every day for the nav deiail Sunbafhing was popular We were off for Europe and soon found the old routine of watches, turn-to ' s, and working par- ties in full swing, with one added attraction for the men of the " Mighty Mo, " fueling destroyers alongside every morning. The three-phase sys- tem, with its division of the cruise into gunnery, engineering and navigation left little time for leisure. Bus service Time oui for a swim Skyline of Lisbon rinqal Our first impression of Lisbon was one of heat, but we were even more amazed at the taxis— the low fares and the carefreeness of the drivers. From the luxury of Estoril with its beaches and casino to the old part of Lisbon, nestled under the Castle of St. George, with its narrow, wind- ing, hilly streets, we all found picturesqueness and beauty. Some hings weren ' t modern Narrow streets The fleet landing at fanious Black Horse Square Oufdoor cafe Cintra, with its old Moorish palaces and castles, its mountainous terrain, and magnificent views, was but one of the attractions near Lisbon.

The Coliseum ¥. Some visiied fhe Vafican Those of us who visited the Eternal City can well understand whence came the name, for it is surely an ageless city, appealing to all with the myriad facets of its personality, and we found interests ranging from the endless wonders of the past to the temporal makeshifts of the immediate present.

The passing of Sep- tember leave was rendered a little less sad by the prospects of weekends to come, and with foot- ball trips and academics combining, our lives were full. New rates and subjects occupied our time- leaving the mess hall at three bells, YP drills, steam drills across the river, juice drills on the electronics barge, working star sights without the Nautical Almanac— our hours were full and the days moved by fast. I Responsibilities of plebe discipline Damage control The " Beaf Army " hop The climax to the football season came in Novem- ber when we made the annual trip to Philly to see the Greylegs on parade. Our team had fought oil season, and this one was to be the biggest fight of them all. The " twelfth man " skipped out on the field that day and drove with them to the season ' s biggest upset, the 21-21 tie with Army. It was a fitting way to finish out the last football season that we would have.

To a co-o-o-ld parade With the last leave over, the Dark Ages descended upon us in all their horrors— nothing to look for- ward to except exams. We helped celebrate the Inaugural by marching in the Washington pa- rade, took the first term exams, and started to breathe easier. Physicals came and v ent— for some, the results were good— for others, a bit dis- appointing. For all who got the chance, however, seeing how the other half lives up on the Hudson, and having their envoys down for exchange visits, was enjoyable and instructive. Aviation physical The Cadefs arrived Improving inter-service relations The frials of an afier-dinner speaker Watches proved less dull and more enjoyable this year as we found ourselves at the top of the pyra- mid. We found our spare time diminishing at an alarming rate, for the hurdles seemed higher as the goal came nearer.

There were tables on the lawn of Dahlgren and refreshments for those who just wished to chat, and music for those who enjoy dancing. It was an opportunity to introduce our parents to our Superintendent. Refreshmenis were plentiful Where parents can meet ADM and Mrs. Holloway receive " Co or Company to the front. " PRESENTATION OE THE COEORS One of the most colorful ceremonies of June Week was, as it always is, the parade for the presentation of the colors. As the battle for the honor to receive the colors thundered down the home stretch, the twenty-second company emerged as the " best in the Brigade. " Miss Marie Badecker, the fiancee of company commander George Benas, became the Color Girl of the Class of 1949. The occasion was all that could be hoped for, and it was with satisfaction that the Color Company gave three cheers for the Color Girl, and the Brigade gave three cheers for the Color Company. ' f !

With only the first and second classes in Dahlgren, the crowd was just the right size for comfortable dancing. Crowds of par- ents lined the balcony, and many of them tried out the floor, too.

We filed into Dahlgren Hall for the last time as midshipmen, and impatiently waited for the ceremonies to begin. Chaplain Bishop gave the invocation, and the Secretary of the Navy, Francis P.

' car Iff Spofii A.,V v With the arrival of George Sauer, our hopes for a more successful football season than Navy had had for the past several years were raised. The team worked hard and shaped up into a good organization. No one expected Coach Sauer to accomplish miracles the first year he was here, especially with the gruelling schedule which the squad had to face. The best teams in the country came to our door, and always left with a certain knowledge that they had been in a fight. Their power, however, was just too much for the Navy. The time for the all-important Army game arrived with almost everyone in the nation conceding our defeat except the midship- men and the team itself. The nation was sur- prised, we weren ' t, although our delight knew no bounds, when the game ended with a 21-21 tie. In spite of the numbers in the score, it was Navy ' s victory, and a warning of the caliber of team that would go on the field next year to make a name for itself with an eq The and cross-country more than held their own against the best on the East Coast, while those remarkable 150 ' s added another undefeated sea- son and another championship to their record. With the coming of winter, basketball came into the limelight. While Ben Carnevale ' s boys didn ' t exactly burn up the circuit, they did a fine job, winning more than they lost, and handing the Army another defeat. Swimming, fencing, indoor track, rifle, pistol, gym, and a new varsity sport at the Academy, squash, carried Navy ' s name among the winners in the Sunday morning news- papers. The wrestling team with its phenomenal string of victories extending over several years, finally bowed to Penn State, but that was the only time that Ray Swartz ' s matmen were in the losing column. Spring arrived, and with it an- other new varsity sport, water polo. Baseball, track, tennis and golf, upheld their fine reputa- tions, while lacrosse and crew made things diffi- ult for all comers. All in all, the past athletic season was one which upheld the fine traditions of Navy ' s teams and the Navy itself. Bill XII Head Coach George Souer Coaching staff-2nd U. L. C.

It culminated a successful season. With lots of hard work behind them, with constant drilling on the fundamentals of the game, and with every man on the team in fine physical condition, the boys soon made them- selves nine wins, a tightly fought 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Pennsylvania Quakers, and a 2-2 tie with Cornell in the opening contest of the year.

They fought hard and, although they were often late in crossing the finish line, they showed true Navy spirit and fight, even in defeat. The Blue and Gold chalked up only three victories in a heart- breaking season, but at the same time they were developing a nucleus for a dangerous team next year.

Just how the hard-working veterans would get along with the potentially great Youngsters, no- body could guess. After breezing through three easy contests early in December, the boys ran up against the power of the Big Ten and the Fight- ing Irish. We soon came to expect no tourna- ment play outside our own league, but we ap- preciated good, hard-fought basketball and were thankful for the two or three wins that came with every loss. We felt sure that Coach Ben Carna- vale and his floormen would always do better than average in a season ' s time. l.LCo ligan, II John Barrow, Captain 464 Something new was added this year.

Since it requires so much stamina and practice, the ham ' n ' eggers can always be found outdoors playing whenever there is not more than twelve inches of snow on the grounds.

The whole staff was enlarged by the addition of underclassmen, men who would themselves be publish- ing the yearbooks of the respective classes in the not- too-distant future. Every afternoon the office in the First Wing Basement trembled under the pounding of type- writers and often heated arguments of the editorial and business staffs, one trying to spend money and the other trying to save it. Among the First Classmen, weekend liberties came few and far between as the effort toward meeting deadlines was made. The darkroom was con- stantly nagged at for more production with more speed. And, by the middle of March, it was all over but the printing of the June Week Supplement, which would be added to the books to round out the class ' history with that long-awaited and wondrous event.

For this reason we have greatly expanded our tanker fleet. Each time another tanker is put into service, we know it will soon help to distribute more petroleum more widely.

She was an ex- periment, regarded by many as of doubtful value. Since those pioneering days, EBCo has built hundreds of submersibles for the Navy. During this period the Navy ' s submarine service has dramatically demonstrated its efTectiveness in both defensive and offensive naval warfare. Per- haps the greatest strides in submarine efficiency were made during World War II, when with only 1.6% of the Navy ' s total personnel, U.S. subs accounted for 52% of all Jap ships sunk l)y any means, including aircraft. Today many naval planners regard the sub- marine as the capital warship of the future. Here at EBCo we are working in conjunction with the Navy to develop undersea craft of un- matched speed, safety and fighting power. Our country must keep pace to keep the peace.

SHIP CONTROL-af your fingertips! FORTY-NINE INSTRUMENTS and Controls . . . formerly scattered in confusing array about the pilot house . . . now consolidated in this compact console. Not only is this a great simplification of the problem of ship control, but a real saving in topside weight and space. This new convenience, developed in close co-opera- tion with the U.S. Navy, represents the most modern advancement in the progress of ship control ... a process which has been going on since man first ventured on the open sea. With the passage of years, every new device which has been introduced to the ship ' s bridge has consumed a little more of the steadily diminishing area of deck and bulkhead space. With the Ship ' s Control Console, the first step has been taken in the direction of consolidating the most essential instruments and controls on a single console . . . within an arm ' s length, and within the view of a single pair of eyes. Consideration of problems such as were presented by the Ship ' s Control Console are the daily concern of RCA engineers.

That good reputation is based on more than 40 years of competent usefulness to many industries. It is widely respected as a symbol of sound, far-seeing engineer- ing, it stands for the pioneering spiri t that is forever searching for more durable, more efficient, more economical equipment. You can ' t charge for a reputation— can ' t put a price on it, because it ' s priceless; can ' t get money for it because money didn ' t create it.
