RICHARD THOMAS HERKNER San Rai ' ael, California A Californiaii is Dick; he made himself right at home at USNA. Finding academics a ratiier drab pastime he braiiciied into extracurricular activities. Beginning Plebe year he wrote about a thousand words per LOG issue. LOG writing only occupied nine tenths of his study hour time so Dick followed his Scrooge McDuck instincts by becoming class treasurer. Money wasn ' t the only thing he collected; made a big hit with eastern women. Dick ' s other interest in life (aside from the sack) was getting a line commission and later on getting into C.E.C. He was pretty confident too; only two more sick bay eye charts to memorize. " M " STASER HOLCOMB Seattle, Washington Staser came to Annapolis from Seattle to fulfill a long- standing ambition. At Navy his ready sense of humor found easy expression in cartoons for both the LOG and SPLINTER. Sportswise, Stas always had some racket or other . . . either tennis or squash, his favorites. He liked basketball, but found skiing on the snowless Annapolis plains difficult. Many hours at his desk, armed with a book in one hand and a fresh carrot in the other, enabled Stas to wear stars on his full dress uniform. Staser was one of those rare characters who could work in harmony with anybody but still remain completely Staser. DONALD STONE HOLMES, JR. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Reversing progress, the Holmes Family came from the West to the East and Philly, bringing with them little Don. Retaining the frontiersman shooting skill, Don shot his mark at Navy. A product of the University of Penn, Don moved out plebe year. He lost his head and stars the next year over his OAO, and became the casual middle. Outside of exercising his trigger finger on the Rifle Team, Don liked nothing better than a good soccer game. Kind of blindish, Don looks forward to a productive career in Air Force ground. Page 341
