Rich or poor, scholar or neophyte, service or civilian, all started the same. The day of our initiation into the fraternity of men who follow the sea had arrived. flo tt Pcutl fowe , rriHEY say this son of a Scottish J- gardener was unfit for command because of his violent temper, but John Paul Jones rose by his own capa- bilities to become a captain in the British merchant service. In 1777 he offered himself to the new Conti- nental Navy, and in the years that followed, by precept and example, laid the foundation of American Naval tradition. He died in Paris but now rests in the Crypt beneath the Naval Academy Chapel. THE CHAPEL REAR ADMIRAL ?, 4. %■ V 6tyie t John Adolphus Dahlgren entered the Navy in 1826. He obtained some notoriety for praising the de- spised hollow shot and harping on the need of fire control, and, in 1847, he was ordered to Washington for ord- nance work. He founded what has become the Naval Gun Factory and revolutionized gun construction and, through it, ship construction. Two monuments to this officer-scientist are the Navy ' s great proving-ground at Dahlgren, Virginia, and Dahlgren Hall, at the Naval Academy. DAHLGREN HALL (fcotye cutcnoft Education was the life of George Bancroft. Graduating from Har- vard at sixteen, he was sent abroad to study with the best minds of Europe. As Secretary of the Navy under Presi- dent Polk, he planned and established the United States Naval Academy. His History of the United States became a final authority, and his own poetry, Greek and Latin translations, enjoyed equal success. George Bancroft and American education walked hand in hand through the nineteenth century. I BAMCROTT HALL I rftyi 7. " THafatt Alfred Thayeb MahaN, the son - - of a West Point Instructor, graduated from the Naval Academy in 1856 and, in 1885, was called by Admiral Luce to teach strategy, tac- tics and Naval history in the newly founded Naval War College. Inter- nationally praised, his Influence of Sea Power Upon History and subsequent works became required reading in practically every navy in the world. His research lifted naval warfare to the status of an exact science. MAHAN HALL METAMORPHOSIS Years of planning, months of waiting, hours of hoping — and a now way of lifo was opened unto us. A life for which we would give lip many of the accoutrements of living that we had once cherished. First they took our pulse, then our money, next our hair, and finally our clothes.

The department lived up to its name as a catch-all for " orphan " studies by giving courses from rhetoric to studies of Mahan. Here we wandered with the heroes of the past. Here also we met distinguished men of the moment at evening lectures and after-dinner speaking.

Starting with elementary calisthenics as plebes, we had drills in nearly every sport. During our last years we learned " carry over " THE 1951 STAFF OF THE DEPARTMENT sports and the rough points of coaching and officiating.

" No one can recall how many times we saw that movie. But ME courses were far from being magic.

In the Isherwood group we got our first taste of " professional " Capt. Cornelius S.

In accordance with reference (a) cancelled, superseded, revoked, and reinstated . . . until it became an Academy tradition . . . the class elected an editor and a business manager from many well-qualified candidates.

From the day during second class year when requests for bids on engraving and printing contracts are made until Graduation Day, the LUCKY BAG is a headache of gigantic proportions to its editor. Biographies provided the first big obstacle. Nobody could understand why or how he could write the history of a wife ' s stay at USNA with only half the four years completed. U c Assislanls: J. F.

The coincidence is not without inter- est, for " The Thing " became the theme of our pre-Army- Navy-game festivities. The entertainment at the Army- Navy football game is the Grand Ball of the Activities Com- mittee, but idea-man Hank Nix and his fellow spirit-activators were busy the year round — leading cheers and promoting sports rallies. j4ctivttie Page 56 3 (ytmmittee Bottom row: R.

BILL HEUNDON I iik Naval Academy Choir, under the direction of Pro- fessor Donald C. Gilley, is one of the outstanding musical organizations of the Navy. In addition to leading the musical worship at the weekly chapel service, the choir also makes several trips away from the Academy. Outstanding among these trips is the annual trip to the National Cathedral in Washington, D. C. One of the choir ' s yearly highlights is the annual production of Handel ' s " Messiah, " in which the group joins with one of the choirs from a nearby women ' s college. The " Messiah " entails many long hours of prac- tice in order that the performances may attain the necessarily high standards. So that the two choirs may become accustomed to singing as a unit, the men in the choir travel to the cooperating wcmen ' s college for a rehearsal, and the women return the compliment. The first Academy " Messiah " was presented in 1947. Since then it has been ever growing in excellence and popu- larity. Two performances are generally given on the weekend of the Christmas Eop. The great number of people present is a measure of the success of the production and a reward for the ell ' orts required to bring this masterpiece to the Academy.

Ever striving to put the Academy in the public eye, they control the press boxes at all home foot- ball games and arrange all press releases to news syndicates and hometown papers. The motto of the Reception Committee might be: " The ultimate in hospitality for every visiting team. " Our reputa- tion as hosts depends in large part on their efforts. Page 60 ri-i 1 he aim of the Naval Academy ' Christian Association is to promote the moral tone of the Brigade. Under the leadership of the Protestant chaplains it provides appropriate speakers and musical groups at its meetings. The organization also supplies magazines for Smoke Hall and the hospital. The Naval Academy Newman Club is one of the leading chapters of a nation-wide organization of Catholic college students.

At Christmas-tide each year countless friends of the Brigade are greeted with USNA ' s exclusive and original Christ- mas card. The Christmas Card Committee invariably comes up with a new and striking idea, whose profits often serve to bail less enterprising Trident activities out of serious financial straits. Another Trident Society activity is the annual production of the " Plebe Bible " — Beef Points. To provide plebe answers to upperclass questions the Beef Points must be virtually a one-volume edition of the Encyclopedia Brittanica complete with sea-lawyer certificate and license. Page 64 The Art Club is a group of artistically inclined midshipmen, who provide cartoons and illustrations for Trident publica- tions, and occasionally treat the " rank amateurs " to a planned exhibition. " A home away from home " for camera enthusiasts is the Photo Club. They do with Panchromatic-X and Microdol what the Art Club does with charcoal and water color.

Perhaps the best known and widely appreciated Musical Club is the NA-10. When the word gets around that they are going to play at a Hop, mids and drags crowd into Dahlgren Hall. Other Musical Club units are the Concert Band, the Marching Band, and the Glee Club.

This year ' s production was " The Silver Whis- tle, " starring Hank Nix and Bob Kalisch. Comedy is at its best when these amateur Eddie Foys take to the grease paint and colored lights. Even budding Carol Channings are in evidence, though every actor is a midshipman. Bancroft residents also provide the props, make-up, and electrical dis- plays for the show.

Members meet to exchange ideas, investigate problems of common interest, and to hear learned papers written by fellow club members. Many of the clubs consist of a few members meeting only occasionally after class while others encompass hundreds of members and alfect the daily routine of the whole brigade. They are an outlet for creative genius and help to quench our thirst for knowledge. HAL MM First row: J. H. Allen, E. G. Perrin, J. D. Hemenway, R. W. C. Pysz, J. A. Latham. R. J. Gilbert, J. F.

Otrange as it may seem to many of us, there are some people who enjoy speaking in public so much that all of their spare time is directed to that end.

The middies fought hard, and the Maryland hoys knew they had played a ball game when it was all over. Behind, 21-0, at the half, our boys bounced back to outscore the Terps in the second half, but it wasn ' t enough to overcome the deficit. The final score was 35-21. The next game found us on the short end of a 22-0 score suffered at the hands of Northwestern. Our inexperienced youngsters were beginning to come around, but the wildcats, led by Don Stonesifer and Rich Athan, were just a little too much.

Bill Powers was the Navy standout, with his 55-yard punt return setting up the middies ' second score. Our boys jumped in the win column the following week with a convincing 27-14 win over So.

The West Pointers were able to chalk up but one first down during the first half, and only five throughout the entire game. Time and again the Black Knights found themselves deep in our territory but always the Blue line rose up and toppled the threat. It was the first cadet loss in 28 games.

COACH EVHLS AFTERNOON DIP HOLDING THE LINE son up from the plebes, earned starting berths. The offensive line was made up entirely of veterans with such regulars as captain Bill Thomas and Jim Brown at guards and Bob Whitaker at end, playing their third and last year for Navy. The defensive team was stronger than ever, and also made up entirely of veterans. Paul Martin and Don Knutson, the punter and extra-point specialist, respectively, also turned in good records for their last season with the 150 ' s. Coach Busse ' s boys will be hurt by graduation losses, but there will be plenty of talent from the youngsters and second class with which to rebuild the team. LIKE TENPINS Page 91 SOCCER Despite his relatively inexperienced team, Coach Glenn Warner taught his hoys entirely new tactics for the 1950 season. Discarding the characteristic American man-for-man play, the Navy hooters left the defense work to the two full- hacks and the center full, which left the rest of the team very much on the offensive. The soccer schedule easily matched the murderous football schedule, hut the team faced Army with a string of six victories against three defeats and each of these three had been by a one-point margin. Army, with its finest team in years finally eked out a 4-3 victory in a second overtime period.

USING HIS HEAD IF LOOKS COULD SCORE CAPTAIN WILLIE CRAVEN Page 93 CROSS COUNTRY The 1950 varsity cross-country team came up with an im- proved squad which bettered the preceding year ' s record by finishing with three victories and two defeats in dual compe- tition. They trailed Army in the Heptagonal championships. After dropping the opening contest to a conditioned Maryland team, the harriers downed Yillanova. The next Saturday Captain Tommy Trout, Pat Tacke, and Charlie Cooke led the Midshipmen to an upset victory over St. Joseph ' s College of Philadelphia, breaking their iive-year streak of 27 straight wins, 27-31. The University of Pennsyl- vania slipped by the Navy men with a heartbreaking 27-28 win. In the finale with Duke, the first four places and the meet went to Navy.

Other games saw heartbreaking losses by three- and four-point margins to Penn Dave Muixaney Chet McDonough Willie Wilson Pat Corrioan Joe Bray Page 91 State, Georgetown and Pennsylvania as well as wins over traditional rivals such as Maryland, American University, and Pittsburgh among others. Against the highly touted Duke Blue Devils, Navy gave as scintillating a performance as has ever been witnessed on the Dahlgren Hall court. The blinding fast break, quick cuts under the hoop, and stellar defensive play resulted in a 85-60 victory over Ail-American Dick Gr oat and his running mates. Playing in New York City, Columbia University, unde- feated in seasonal play, humbled Navy 87-62. Navy closed the season with a victory over their arch rivals from the banks of the Hudson. With never more than five points separating THIS CLOSE ALL OF THE WAY Page 98 the two teams the 5,000 spectators were thrilled to the final whistle. Center Bill Wilson notched two records. In three seasons of varsity play he scored 827 points erasing the seventeen- year-old mark of 621 counters. He also broke his own record of individual high for one season by tallying 330 points as compared to 257 he scored the previous season. The 1951 campaign was the last for Wilson, Captain Joe Fitzpatrick, Dave Mullaney, captain of the 1950 aggregation, Chet McDonough, Pat Corrigan, and Joe Bray. As plebes they won fourteen straight and were the backbone of the varsity squad for three seasons. With a record of 16-6 and an N the basketball quintet was a representative of which the Brigade could justly be proud. 1 anMty GYM Ihe Gymnastics team was one of the finest ever produced at the Naval Academy. Paced by Hal Lewis, the team rolled up nine victories, losing only to Army who thereby copped the Eastern Intercollegiate Championship. Team captain Pat Burke and Stan Nail, rope climbers, placed in every meet. Nail set a new Naval Academy record as well as tying last year ' s Eastern Intercollegiate record for the rope climb in 3.5 seconds. Fritz Graf tumbled his way to the top in the Eastern finals this year to account for one of Navy ' s three individual championships. The other two, high bar and flying rings, were captured by Hal Lewis, who was also runner up for the Ail-Around championship. Don Beck placed second on the high bar.

Coach John Higgins, former Ail-American and Olympic star at Ohio State, led the Nators to live wins in their first six starts as they lost only to mighty Yale, the nation ' s b est. The next three meets were all on the road and the swimmers ran into tough sledding as Dartmouth, Harvard, and Rutgers won in their home pools. The boys worked tirelessly in the Nata- torium to prepare for the Army meet and lost out by a narrow live-point margin, 40-35. Captain Boots Johnson was the outstanding performer and was undefeated in dual competition. He set a new Pool record for the 200-yard backstroke; time 2:17.8 and a new Naval Academy record of 2:17.4 at West Point. SWIMMING 1st row: Peters, Miles, D. Johnson, Davies, B.

Coaches Ray Swartz and Carl Kitt were the guiding lights during those hours of practicing to develop speed and decep- tion, to say nothing of all important conditioning, which paid off in a 6-2 record. With wins over Washington and Lee, Maryland, North Carolina, Princeton, Cornell, and the University of Virginia, the team lost only to Rutgers and Penn State. Don Thomas, undefeated at 165 pounds, went on to compete in the Easterns and IC4A championships. First classmen Nelf, wrestling in the 130-pound class, Holloway at 157, Thompson, a 175-pounder, and Hunt, in the heavyweight division, performed notably in this their last year of compe- tition.

Smith and Gorski to give Coach Fiems the strength he needed to fashion those winning margins. With a second team almost at a par with the first the regulars were kept on their toes by regularly scheduled fenee- offs. The foil team showed vast improvement this year.

From the seven scheduled intercollegiate matches, the racquetmen scored successive victories over their first five opponents and ended their season by dropping close decisions to Yale and Army. The team was sparked this year by the outstanding play- ing of team captain Don Haynsworth, Hank Goelzer, John McGavack, Phil Pahl, and Jim Organ. Through the efforts of Admiral H. W. Hill, the Academy acquired twelve new squash courts that were sorely needed to meet the demand brought about by the sport ' s ever-increasing popularity. Ably and energetically coaching the team, Lcdr. Potter, more than any other single person, was responsible for this year ' s successful season.

Off to a good start in their first game when Moretti hit a four-run homer in the last half of the ninth, the squad looked better than their 10 won and 11 lost record would indicate. Coach Bishop ' s fourteenth season with the team found him with a squad weak in pitching, but composed primarily of young blood with another two years ahead. Saylor was again a leading base- stealer, while Metz turned in several good performances on the mound, including his heartbreaking 5 to 2 loss to Army. In spite of difficulties in finding the right infield combination, Max ' s boys stood up to a heavy schedule of the strongest teams in the East and lost onlv to the best of these teams bv the closest of scores. BASEBALL Page 170 Page 171 BEHIND THE GOAL ,- - COACH DINT MOORE Consistently one of the best lacrosse teams in the country, the stickmen had only a fair season this year. Though the mixture of lettermen, old standbys, and zealous newcomers did not live up to expectations, they downed Washington College, Harvard, Swarth- more, and Penn State before bowing to Maryland, Duke, Princeton, and Johns Hopkins. Another win- over Pennsylvania — was chalked up before veterans like team Captain McDonough, Earl, Bray, Fitz- patrick, Treadwell, Craven, Strange, McDonald, and Arnold met the Pointers and dropped the big one 11 to 5. Among the lettermen who swung their last sticks for Navy were Schoen, Stockdale, Surman. Tillson, and Crawford. Goalie Sylvester played another standout season as did Tonetti. Bakke, Naugle, and Lacy. LACROSSE Page 172 THE 1931 LACROSSE TEAM. HAVE A HIGHBALL? READY FIGHT. Page 173 1951 found the Navy Track squad stronger in every event than it had been seasons immediately past. The cinder men tested their mettle against Southern Conference-power Duke in their first meet and came out on top. The team then successively defeated Penn- sylvania, Penn State, and Maryland, and took a third in the Heptagonals. TRACK Page 174 • ■ ' -j4 tut 1951 THE 1951 TRACK TEAM. The trip to the Point this year was a heartbreaker when we lost the meet in the last event, 68% to 62 . Among the many outstanding performers this season were Helland and Allison in the javelin event, Andrews in the broad jump, shot putter Gay, and track men Trout, Green, Bartenfeld, Cooke, Tacke, and Flynn. Allison ' s early-season heave of 225 ' 10 " set a Navy javelin record. Relay team: Flynn, Eckert, Tacke, Trout, Green. NEXT 1EU1 S Y HNIT OVER THE LOWS.

The team that won the Eastern Intercol- legiates took the Kaydets for the second straight year by a score of 8 to 1. No. 1 man Goelzer dropped only three matches. Support was provided by three-year lettermen McGavack and Haynsworth, and Hoffner and Neelv. COACH HENDKIN. DAVE NKEL1 DISCOURAGING LOBBING Pago 176 I CAPTAIN AL WILLIAMS $ol£ FORM AND SADDLE SHCES.

Page 190 APPRECIATIONS Into the production of a book the size and scope of the LUCKY BAG go many ideas and many hours of labor. The skills represented within its covers are many and varied. An- other important consideration is the interest of many official and unofficial observers. To all of these persons and organizations who have shown their interest and given of their time and talents the staff wishes to express its appreciation. To Vice Admiral Harry W. Hill, Superintendent, and Captain Robert B. Pirie, Commandant of Midshipmen, goes our thanks for understanding cooperation and interest in our undertaking. Without an Officer Repre- sentative whose time and advice is constantly available, a Lucky Bag would be lost. We have had, successively, Lt. R. B. Kilt, Capt. T. G. Warfield, and Lt. E. E. Hollyfield as our untiring link with the Executive Department. Of professional help we have had the best. Mr. Peter S. Gurivit, of the Jahn Ollier Engraving Co., has given us countless valuable hours in advising and planning the production of this volume. He is a skilled professional with a background of twenty-seven Lucky Bags, who has taken our problem to heart as though it were his own. Such a man too is Fred Bassman of Von Hoffmann Press, Inc. To Mr. Waller L. McCain for his untiring effort in behalf of our advertising campaign goes our special thanks. The First Class Portraits show at a glance the excellence of the work of Mr. Harry Hollander and the staff of Merin Studios. Our contact with them has been a pleasant personal experience as well as a profitable one. We wish also to thank . . . Harris 4 Ewing of Washington, D. C, for the pictures of the President and the Secretaries . . . Zamsky Studios for the photographs of the second class. Around all this you see the skill of a fine cover craftsman. For the covers we wish to thank Mr. E. Hawley Twiss of the National Publishing Co. Last we wish to thank the officers and midshipmen of the Naval cademy and it is to them that we submit the 1951 Lucky Bag for approval. Page 192 L i L • tt .

Says Fleet Admiral Ernest J. King: " I have been a member of the U. S. Naval Institute for almost fifty years. I would urge all hands of the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard to become members in order to keep in touch with the progress in any part of sea power. " Says Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz: " In my own midshipman days it was the custom for the entire graduating class to become members of the Naval Institute before graduation. It is an excellent introduction to commissioned service which I hope is still pursued by the graduates of the Naval Academy and the N.R.O.T.C. universities and colleges. " Says Fleet Admiral William F. Halsey, Jr.: " The need for every naval officer to be a well-founded, well-in- formed man is a vital one. There is no better way to achieve this than via some such medium as the Naval Institute and the Naval Institute Proceedings. " For over seventy-five years the United States Naval Institute has been a pioneer in Naval professional thought and scientific prog- ress. For over seventy-five years all of the Navy ' s great leaders and future leaders have been members and supporters of the Naval Insti- tute. You are now invited to full fellowship with them in the oldest of American professional military societies. Midshipmen and other commissioned officers of the U. S. Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard are eligible to regular membership; their friends and relatives in the other services or in civilian life are eligible to associate membership. Membership dues are but $3.00 per year, which brings with it without additional cost a full year ' s subscription to the United States Naval Institute Proceedings, a 144- page monthly magazine filled with unusual photographs and invalu- able professional articles and reviews.

' Now scientists at RCA Laboratories work with slivers of time too infini- tesimal for most of us to imagine. Their new electron tube, the Graphe- chon, makes it possible. For instance, in atomic research, a burst of nuclear energy may flare up and vanish in a hundred-millionth of a sec- ond. The Graphechon tube oscillograph takes the pattern of this burst from an electronic circuit, recreates it in a slow motion image. Scientists may then ob- serve the pattern of the burst . . . meas- ure its energy and duration. With Graphechon we can watch fleeting phenomena which occur outside our con- trol. It is not only applied to nuclear re- search, but also to studies of electrical current ... or in new uses of radar and tele- vision. Like so many products of RCA re- search Graphechon widens man ' s horizons. RCA works in close co-operation with the military services of the United States, maintain- ing liaison for specific research in radio and electronics to help guarantee the nation ' s scien- tific preparedness and security. Research like that which gave us the Graphechon tube accounts for the superiority of RCA Victor ' s new 1950 home television receivers. RADIO CORPORATION of AMERICA ENGINEERING PRODUCTS DEPARTMENT.

ASHORE the stian-steel Quonset Here is why Quonsets are so widely utilized by the Navy: ■ They are packaged for easy handling and lowest possible shipping cube. ■ Quonset ' s nailing groove permits the use of a variety of collateral materials to fit out the buildings for many uses. ■ They require less material to cover any given area. ■ They are easily and quickly erected with ordinary carpenter ' s tools. ■ They are adaptable to all climatic conditions. ■ Quonsets are non-combustible, rot-proof, termite-proof, require a minimum of maintenance. The first Quonsets were Great Lakes Steel ' s answer to a need for buildings that could be mass-produced, shipped in crates, and erected on the spot in a matter of hours. Thousands of Quonsets dotted the Pacific outposts of our Navy before the end of the war and there is scarcely a Navy veteran today who does not remember well the job they did. The Quonset of today is a vastly improved building. It is being produced in several basic sizes to meet an infinite number of needs. And Great Lakes Steel is again supplying Quonsets in quantity for the Navy. Greatly enlarged and improved production facili- ties enable Great Lakes to produce more Quonsets than ever before.

Rubber doing to bridge the gap between hard and soft rubber? .-. S K :- rinnnnnnonnnn ' -n-n-w Washing machine parts, for- merly made of plastic and metal, now made of new ther- mosetting plastic, Enrup, which las higher abrasion resistance and is structurally stronger. The new " U.S. " thermosetting plastic, Enrup, can be made flexible and elastic as soft rubber, or rigid as hard rubber. Enrup offers entirely new possibilities to design engineers. The wash- ing machine parts, shown above, are made of Enrup because its abrasion resistance and structural strength are greater than the com- bination of metal and plastic formerly used. Enrup can be made into almost any shape or form, simple or complex. It can be punched, sanded, sawed, nailed, bolted, molded and machined. Perhaps Enrup is just what you ' ve been looking for to improve your product or your manufacturing operation. For more details, write to address below. •o PRODUCT OF Some of the products made of Enrup for leading manufactur- ers. The smallest items weigh as little as one-third of an ounce. Engineers often find Enrup cuts molding costs, per- mits operating economies hith- erto impossible. Note how a bath of 20 percent solution of sulphuric acid eats away the steel gear at left, while the Enrup gear is un- harmed. Enrup is non-conduc- tive, non-absorbent, easy to clean, is noiseless.
