In our dail routine, our academics, our sports, our acti ities, we made many new friends .| and gained a knowledge of our world and the problems which face us. This is the storv of one class, the Class of 1955, from its entrance in the summer of " 51 until its graduation in June of 1955.

Like s(i inaiiv sheep Three inches below By the end of plebe summer we knew here we were and where we were going. We became oriented to the Naval Academy and mihtar - hfe in general. The Class of 1951 did their best to square us away before the Brigade returned. There were countless drills of all t pes, and we marched to all of tliem; marched to the whaleboats, to tlic knockabouts, to the yawls, to the rifle range, to the steam demonstrations even to the infantr - drills, and we will ne er forget those earlv morning E.D. musters.

A cjuick trip to Norfolk to pick up the XROTC midshipmen: and before we knew it, the shore line of ' irginia faded into the distance. Our first davs at sea were met with mixed reactions — e er thing was so new, so different from anything we had experienced before. ' e were to li e and learn as seamen. Later cruises taught us specialized phases of naval warfare and shipboard administration. Second Class Cruise we learned the technicjues of com- bined amphibious assault and how- carrier based planes revolutionized fleet operations. First Class Cruise we supervised the jobs which we liad learned two ears before. Field Dav YouniistiT (.ruiso . . .

OR some, the highliglits of Youngster Cruise were liberty in France and the tour to Paris. With cameras in hand and with what we tliought to be sufficient money in our pockets, we descended upon the cultural center of Eu- rope. The Eiffel Tower, Arch of Triumph, Ca- thedral of Notre Dame, and Parisian night life were musts on the lists of things to do and see. Most of us returned penniless, retaining the memor of four wonderful da s in Ga Paree. The Parisian skyline, studied from Arch of Triumph, was level from hori- zon to horizon, broken only by the Eif- fel Tower.

While stowing cruise gear we were liappy to see the new Plebes with " 56 on their white works pockets. Before we kuew it, leaN e was o er. and we were hack. Since we were no longer the low class on the totem pole, we settled hack to enjoy our new rates and strengthen our left arms to carry the weight of a single gold stripe. Bracing up and squared corners were things of the past. In their place we suhstitutcd Smoke Hall, radios, and drags.

As we read- ied oursehes for the long trip down, there were jokes and laughs about the ejection seats and rip cords, but all smiles anished on top of the tower. We climbed into the cockpit, and sooner than we had planned, found oursehes upside down under water. This was one P-work we could not afford to bilge, ' e managed to get out, swim a few strokes, and climb into the ellow raft to watch the next future a iator make his first crash landing.

The nearness of Virginia Beach and Norfolk to Little Creek made up for the earlv end of liberty and the e en earlier reveille. Break- fast at 0530 and noon meal at 1000 were novelties to us at first, hwt the quantitv and qnalit of the food ended any mis- gi ings about the hours. Drv net drills replaced the lectiu-es and mox ' ies on amphibious assault which filled the earlv part of the week. Those long trips down the cargo nets onlv to arri e at the bottom and retinn to the top via the same route left us wondering if we ' d ever recuperate; then it was time to do it all o ' er again, this time into a bobbing LC T. B this time, our West Point classmates had joined us, and our train- ing was intensified as integrated units. We saw a demonstra- tion landing bv Marines, and then we hit the beach for a practice landing. The afloat phase of our training was cli- maxed bv a full-dress assault on the beaches of Camp Pendle- ton. The relaxation of the near-by beaches was supplemented b tlie Camid Ball, the social hishlisht of our Norfolk visit.

The recrea- tional facil ities seemed as extensive as ours if not more so; an enormous gvm. the field house, and especialK the skating rink attracted our attention. The prospect of ha ing a cadet cut in at a hop was unfamiliar, though not unpleasant. Services in the impressi e Cadet Chapel were one of our last ex- periences before we returned to the shores of the Se ern.

This group spent enjoyable hours in discussing, trading, and exhibiting their collections. In addition to providing hours of recreation, this hobby can gi e an insight into the history and culture of many nations. The wide popularity of stamp collecting was mirrored in the size of the Stamp Club at the Naval Academy and in the enthusiasm of members Bill Manthorpe, George Tsantes, Jack Schilpp, and Bill ColHer. Photo eiub The Photo Club ' s two darkrooms offered ample facilities to an ' member of the Bri- gade interested in photography. All the tools of the trade including developing tanks, enlargers, and cliemicals were on hand. About two hundred fifty members lienefited from a campaign to improxc facilities begun b)- Jack Schilpp, the presi- dent of the club. The readily accessible darkrooms made it possible for photo bugs to gratif ' the " do it yourself " urge and to obtain results more satisfying than com- mercial finishiuiT work.

Excelling in sports, Dick listed two letters for sub squad duty as one of his most cheri.shed achie ements, but he was also a regular per- former in intramural sports in every season. As far as aca- demics were concerned, Dick ' s favorite subjects were women, music, dames, sleeping, and girls. With his quiet manners and good nature, Dick is sure to be a success in his chosen field. LOREN RAYMOND ALFRED Bremerton, ' ASHINGTON Al ' s one worry at Navv seemed to be keeping under the two-himdred mark. Neither dieting nor daily javelin throw- ing could (|uite put him in trim. He spent a great deal of time listening to classical music and meditating. Always a man of high ambitions, he allowed the career of a naval officer, a gal from Baltimore and a desire to enter the med- ical profession to take the spotlight in his mind at arious times. Finding no reason to sweat the academics, he de- oted numerous studv hours to building outstanding model airplanes. Li%ing with his unrefined roommates was trving to Al. but he did manage to instill a little culture in them.

The change was a tough one; but with a little help from the Executive Department the switch came about, and Spike set out to make life as pleasant as possible for himself and others. A heavy dragger, he found the Crabtown lovelies to his liking and did more than his share of li ing it up. Athletic clothes were not at all a strange get-up for Spike.

Pennsylvania Hal, from the hills of Pennsylvania, came to Navv after two ears at Penn State. A soldering gun took up most of liis time in the Hall since this Juice Gang mastermind became adept i n the art of making their flashing signs flash.

While here at Mother Bancroft the academic departments presented no particular problem for him, but most of all Pete will be remembered for his unique s ' stem of rating a prof — good grader, good prof! Second Class summer saw him go down in defeat as it was then that his class crest " disappeared " — even though he had sworn that it would never happen to him. Each afternoon he diligenth ' splashed around in the Natatorium under the watchful eve of the swimming coach. Graduation will furnish the Navv blue with one of the best. CLAUDE TAYLOR FUQUA.

Spending man ' hours behind his LMD in the capac- ity of Business Manager, he knocked himself out working on the Lucky Bag. Bill proved himself a conscientious, hard working man and what ' s more an honest-to-goodness Southern Gentleman. I LEROY ALBERT LAMB, JR- Groton, CoxxEcncuT Leroy came to the Academy via tlie Marine Reserve and NAPS. He lost little time in settling down and making the Hall his home and has managed to avoid the Executive Department ' s extra instruction rather consistentlv. The con- servative forms of entertainment appeal to Leroy. He does a lot of reading, from science-fiction to philosophy. Not one to become involved in the intricacies of dragging at the Academy, Leroy spends most of his free moments in the gvm.

Then came Korea and Mr. C. went over with the Big Mo. He had been over there quite a while when an almost forgotten applica- tion was approved and he took off for Newport and N. PS.

He was an ardent photo bug but devoted most of his time, when not rattling sabers with the academic and Executive Depart- ments, to the pursuit of the fairer sex: however, his wives figure he could use a little coaching along this line. He was liked best for his long line of |uips. packages from home, and his sul scription to the Ohio State Iniversitx ' s humor magazine, jnhii Impc . to couple his serxici- career with medicine. 295 ■ I JOSEPH JAMES WALTER Elm Gkone, Wisconsin Joe, who was brought up in the beer city of Milwaukee, became famous earh ' in his Naval career by being the only Midshipman actually to have a hole in his head, although many have been accused of it. Joe very conveniently di- vided his time between the rack and dragging, but didn ' t go in much for variety. Later on he took up sailing on the battalion yawls to become one of the top hands. His easy going manner and likeable personality combined with his other likeable traits should make him a standout in the service. SEABORN HOWARD WADE, JR. Miami, Florida A native of Miami. Seaborn spent two years at Stetson Universit ' and another semester at Miami U. before he decided that Navy tech was the place for him. Once he had made up his mind (much to the relief of Navy ' s golf coach) it was impossible to stop him — as even the Skinny Depart- ment found out. He managed to divide his time almost equally between his favorite sport golf, his fa ' orite hobbv sailing, and the salvation of mankind, the indoor trampoline. Even though Seaborn claimed no kinship to Ben Hogan, tliose who saw him perform out on the links will swear that he had one of tlie finest drives ever to grace the Naval Academy golf course. JEROME FRANCIS WATSON Brooklyn, New York Jerry hails from a place of some distinction, at least to true baseball fans — Flatbush. He came to the Naval Academy after one year at Fordham University ' . Although not a star man, he has had no trouble with academics. He has spent most of his spare time around the boathouse. He was a member of the crew that won the National Championship his Plebe year, and received his N Youngster year. It looks as if he will spend the next twent} ' years of his life in the line.

ROBERT LOUIS FISCHER Dubuque, Iowa Bob left three colleges and a brickla ing job to seek his fortune at the Academy with hopes for a future in the Marine Corps. The company was glad to get him too for his many pre-recitation translations of the Spanish assign- ment, for a pair of decorated pajamas for the O.A.O., and for his athletic abilities. The most outstanding feature of Bob is his hands— both for their size and varied abilities. Equally proficient at tossing a football, basketball, or soft- ball, Bob was even more famous for his artistic endeavors. It might also be said that with Bob, biLsiness is business, pleasure is pleasure, and love is for the birds. 332 (.1 ALBIIM HOUH (.lUI II S S»LA.MI KiN, Pt NSYl.VA.

DAVID MILTON HAMMETT San Diego, California Born in Colorado, raised in Oregon and educated to the way of partS ' time on the beaches of sunny Southern Cal, Dave claims San Diego as his home. The Gimp had a good time slogging through the mud in the rougher of the out- door sports and was forever being caught in his skivs when the bell rang for choir formation Sunday mornings. Any free study hour would find Da e writing passionate letters to his O.A.O. in Cal who has probably sweated the last three years more than he. One thing for sure, when you run across Dave somewhere in the service, you ' ll know him when he says, " Just gotta have another cigarette! " HARTLEY OLIVER HOLTE Seattle, ' . shington Ollie was best noted and recognized by his back, the back of his b-robe. Through his years at Navy Tech, he amassed quite a collection of numerals and awards of assorted sizes for his achievements in the athletic fields. Aside from the desire to become a naval officer, his foremost love in life was sports, with an emphasis on tennis and basketball. If there was anything that he did not know about the stars of the state of Washington, it really wasn ' t worth knowing. After coming to Navy, Ollie decided that the feminine se.K really had some interest for the poor dejected male, and his in(|uiries and pursuit into the eccentricities of the female were fast, furious, and thorough.

Dave jouiueved to the Naval Academy where his brilHant high school record, along with athletic prowess, firmly established him in Canoe U. for four fruit vears.

His athletic abilitv was distributed among football, numerous compauv sports, and the rack. These assets, along witii a determination to succeed, mark Dave for a britiht future. WILLIAM HENRY JAMES MANTHORPE, JR. Ardmore, Pex.nsyl . xla Here was a lad from the cit ' of brotherlv love who claimed his strength was that of ten for he doesn ' t smoke, drink, or chew. Math was a mystery to Bill, but a 4.0 in dragging was his for the asking. He apparentlv had a contact in Washington who had his fingers in the academic pie, be- cause Bill alwavs had the straight dope on cruise or the Skinn - P-work. We don ' t know where he may be assigned; but whenever plent ' of common sense, a lot of pep. and a willingness to help others is needed. Bill ' s the man for the job. MLLIAM EDWARDS McCARRON, JR. G. LVESTON, Te,X. S Mac came to us straight from the beaches of Galveston and high school. Since he had no previous militarv background, ours was a completely new life for the young Texan. W ' ith a high will to learn, Mac pushed ahead and within a short time was completely adjusted to the Navy routine. Never a slouch in studies. Bill earned his stars Youngster vear and kept them for the remainder of his sta ' . Being intelligent as only one of Bill ' s gifts — he plaved 150 pound football and spurred the Thirteentli compauv lighhveights forward to two Brigade Championships. Bill was always ver " popu- lar with his classmates because of his great sense of humor.

" How long have vou been in the Na y, mister? " " All me bloomin ' life, sir. " Seems like it, doesn ' t it? George was an old salt from way back; just ask the Plebes. But even with his manv varied talents the smiling Irishman always found time to hit the rack. With academic standards in the mid- latit udes and that " dont sweat it " attitude, George always won the fight to stav with us. In dragging he also won many jousts, but like Washington, he has made no entangling alliances and stands a free man. ERIC MILNOR Wilmington, North Carolina If you heard someone say day after day " Aw, the Prof w ill put out the dope, " you would know that you were listening to Eric. He has spent his years at Navy proving that eight hours sleep a day is not enough. When things went wrong, this norinalh ' quiet and unperturbed redhead rocked the corridors with a roar that would make a lion feel small. Frequently, he could be found in Smoke Hall demonstrating his mastery of ping pong. Erics only big complaint about Usnay was that this part of the world is Hat and offers no real trials for a mountain climber. JIMMIE RAY MITCHELL . le. andria, Louisiana .Mitch left the bayous to spend two years in the Navy before becoming a Midshipman. His enlisted service included ET school, a tour of dut aboard an LST in the Far East, and finally the course at N. PS. Like most other things, Mitch took academics in stride, and spent manv pleasant studv hours in the rack. Despite strong leanings toward the radi- ator scjuad. he could often be found sparking the compan ' sports squads, and did a lot for the Juice Gang. An indi- vidualist who combines the calm assurance of one who knows that everv problem has a solution and the cjuiet poise of a Southern gentleman, Mitch will find little diffi- culty in whatever field he pursues. 384 1 ,J ri I IK Willi I ()l)(.l HS WtM OllAMh.

On arriving on the Severn, he cjuickly began demon- strating his talents both in academics and athletics. He anchored the Fourth Battalion football team ' s line from his slot at guard and turned in a fine performance every game. His only trouble connected with academics was keeping his stars shined; so he had plent ' of time to help anyone with a question and did so any time he was asked. He plans to go into submarines upon graduation. WAYNE KIMBALL SHANAHAN Whitefish, Mont. na From Whitefish, " Winter Playground of the Rockies, " as Shannv oidd put it, comes the next probable Polar ex- plorer.

After high school, Shannv traded his ski pants for a pair of Navy Dress Can- vass and a White Hat, prepped at NAPS where he held the record for time horizontally, and finally wound up in the Beaver Company of Ye Okie Trade Schoole. Never one to sweat academics, he whizzed through Na ' with no stars, but also with no strain and a clutch factor of absolute zero. Shannv will be taxiing for a take-off in one of the nation ' s newest jets sometime in the near future. DENNIS JOSEPH SULLIVAN, JR. W. SHlXGTON-, D. C. The quality of intensits ' in whatever he undertakes, be it relaxing or concentrating, won Denny innumerable friends and excellent grades. Coming from Notre Dame as an NROTC student after having bounced around the world a bit under the guise of a Navy junior, he acquired rather definite opinions on the art of lifesmanship, being most outspoken on the subjects of wine, women, and Ireland, in that order. But despite his heritage, background, and nat- ural tendenc " to list to starboard, it is our considered opin- ion that he will pro c to be a most welcome addition to any cocktail parts . 386 2 c P. t;.

DONALD ALEX. NDER ALECXIH Steelton, Penxsylvanl From Steelton.

No Olympic swimmer, die Serb found him- self whiling away the winter hours in the depths of the instruction pool. This, however, didn ' t dampen his spirits, and he came through with living colors. In tlie field of academics he fared far better and earned the reputation of a deadl}- marksman with the slide rule. Looking for other worlds to conquer, he often in aded the realm of the fairer se. , where he is noted for his manv and frecjuent successes. FREDERICK MICHAELS BOWLES Cartersville, ' irginia Fred didn ' t have to move his baggage far when he entered Canoe U. As a resident of Crabtow ' n for several years, he spent enough time looking in from the outside so that Navy Tech held few m steries for him. Born and raised in Yii- ginia, Fred came north a bit just in time to be a football star for Annapolis High. After a year at the University of Richmond, he put his football talents to work for the Fourth Batt team. A bruising competitor on the athletic field. Fred hit academics hard too. As a long time aviation enthusiast, he has a desire for a flying job come graduation. 390 IKANCIS IKOWHI) ( VMll.l.O BixtN, Ntw MiAJco Chico, as hv is kiiuwii to evenoiu ' . came to tlic . a al Acatli ' iiiN from iht- tlrv lands of Now Mt-xico after prepping at Now Mexico Militarv Institute and the L ' niversitx ' of New Mexico.

Harry is a true Swede from the state of the fighting Illini and is proud of it. His capacity for coffee is well above the average person ' s. He is no piker when it comes to food either; however, his eating desires don ' t slow the Hoss down. Delicacies like pickled herring or Roquefort cheese make this big Swede as content as ever. A very religious man is Harrv, who is true as ever to the Lady Hoss. Although he missed his calling as another Frank Buck, were glad he made his way to Canoe U. DEMOSTHENES NICOLAS KOLARAS Athens, Greece The Army got Demo first, but fortunateh ' wasn ' t good enough to hold him. Demo spent the entire period of the occupation with his parents in Greece, but in 1949 returned to his birthplace, Lockport, New York. There began a chain of events, ending when Demo realized his life long ambition and became a Midshipman. Demo often entertained us with Greek tirades, and many times his capacit) ' for making noise at a football game amazed those around him. Harcl, steady work, whether keeping ahead in academics, helping design the class crest, or fighting his av up to the arsit soccer squad, typify a young man w ith a future.

' irgixla Pat stormed the walls of Navy straight from the sands of Waikiki in beautiful Hawaii Nei. By virtue of his aggres- siveness, he had no trouble learning the ways of shoes, shirts, and ties. His problem was in adopting these fashions into his first love, the golf game. Those low scores on the back nine and his prowess in the fight ring made a name for him in the MacDonough Hall Log. Pat also personified " big things come in little packages ' for the femmes fatales. A true sailor, he endeavored to fulfill the fable of a girl in every port and did quite well for himself on our sinnmer cruises. Pat ' s past experience will serve him in good stead as a Navv line officer. THOMAS PETER CANN Rye, New Y ' ork Tom came to Navv from R e.

He captained the 19.51 Navv Plcbe basketliall team in its first game, but a twisted knee ended a promising career. He professed to be a man ' s man, but we knew better — he tried to keep it a secret, but we all saw her that Sunday.

His first contact with the Navy was three years as a reservist and some time in ROCS. Navy Tech was a natural step in quest for a Nav ' line commission. His girl took up most of his time after the books. Next came his hobby, gunsmithing. His first love, however, was food. This was Russ as we knew him, Russ Dedrickson, who plans to get hitched and head for God ' s covmtry after graduation. DAVID BOWDOIN CROUCH Atlanta, Georgia The deep South never had such a staunch representative of the Confederac until Sober Da e came to Xavv Tech. He hated the name Sherman and was a full-fledged Colonel in the Confederate Au " Force. Along with his liking for black- eved peas, corn squeezings, and the famous rack, Dave was acti e in track, wrestling, and company sports. Alwaj ' S making the most of his few liberties, Dave was strictly a parts " man and famous for dragging Southern beauties.

Alternating Chaucer with Basic Mechanisms, he had no difficultv pulling the proper numbers off the weekly tote sheets. Amiable, per- sonable, a friend of everybody ( those New England man- nerisms were bound to bring a smile), it took only two to make a party if Frank was one of them. After second class summer he was determined to get in the air. With apologies to Mr. Lindbergh, the first non-stop jet flight around the world will probably be bv Hot Shot Regan in the Spirit of Lawrence. JOHN RAYMOND RICHARDS Honolulu, Hawah Johnny came to Navy from the shores of Honolulu and Punahou Academy. He had a winning smile and many loves. First among these, his career on Navy ' s soccer team, was interrupted bv a half year stay in the hospital with a broken leg. But while there he kept up his social life, a factor in which he excelled witli the help of a long list of drags — the Navv hops were a habit with him.

His father, a naval aviator himself, may ha e had some influence on Greg ' s ambitions, but determination to pursue his dreams was shown by his enlisting in the Naval Air Reserve. The Academy is a big stepping stone to Pensacola and the wild blue. Greg would rather reminisce his experiences in the Sierra Nevada than relate any of his sea stories.

To drag or to sleep was always the foremost question in this bov ' s mind, and he spent a great deal of time at both. Although not the least bit musically inclined, he could be identified by the off-kev time tliat he carried with him wherever he went.

In his first two years at Navy, Reg Book majored in Navy Extras — extia duty and extra instruction — but finally found the secret to success. Extra dutv sessions became few and far between and tlie academics came more easily. Daryls carefree attitude were probablv his greatest contribution to Navy. When things weren ' t going too well it wasn ' t a rare occasion for a disgruntled classmate to drop in to Foley ' s room and receive a refresher course on life. This attitude and abilitA ' to get along with evervone com- prise the basic attributes of a fine officer for his second love — Navv air. JAMES WRIGHT ELLSTROM Fort Dodge, Iowa Jim came to the Academy ia a Senatorial appointment and Iowa State Teachers, where he was majoring in phvsical education. His athletic time for the first six months of each year was spent in the wrestling loft, the remaining time being spent pitching a softball for the 24th. His trips before the Board proved that academics were always secondary to this little man from the corn fields; women and sports held his first love. When asked how he got into the Academy with his height, the standard reply was " The coaches wanted me for my basketball abilitv. " His hopes are Navy air where he will get to see the tops of people ' s heads. JOHN JULES HOOTMAN Grand R. pids, Michig.j n After two years of college, Joco enlisted in the Navv and soon found his way to the Academy. A former boxer and track man, he decided to drop both sports in favor of fenc- ing, which he participated in throughout his four years. His favorite pastime was setting condition H (for hori- zontal), whenever time and academics permitted. He also found it particularlv relaxing to play the drums with the Hellcats. With submarines and the sea being his only loves, Joco plans on a fifty year tour of dutv with Navv line. With his fine character and capabilities, he will make a proud addition to the under-water fleet. 532 ' -? -i " - Kt)BERT FAl L IRONS. JH. Bjiiiksda.

His superior size and weight earned him a place on the crew- squad — as coxswain — but his favorite entertainment was the git-box. Every night before study hour, his beautiful and harmonious chords filled the deck, and finally, after four years, he put them all together and played a whole song. Studies never were much trouble; he plaved cribbage instead of beating the books. But perhaps this Ensign- striker should have turned to the books, for his cribbage was far from the l)est. GEORGE EDWARD LAWNICZAK, JR. Bellevue. Michigan George came to us ia a Congressional appointment one month after graduation from high school. His many tours with the ED squad, becoming battalion commander of his unit Segundo year, proves it was not an easy change-over.

For athletics, the Name participated in company and battalion sports. George looks to the air and multi-engines for his future. HENRY CARLTON NORTH, JR.

He was a firm believer of the old saving that anything over 2.5 was wasted effort. Not a party boy. Bill would settle for a quiet evening of dancing. The smell of salt air and rolling seas were in- cluded in Bill ' s future plans. 536 ROBERT COOPER STRANGE C ' lAHi:.

It had to be light and compact — so multiple units could be carried by fighter-type jets. It had to be deadly ac- curate — capable of outmaneuvering the swiftest bombers an enemy could pro- duce. And it had to be practical— suitable for large-scale production. ■ The rockct-poNs ercd, radar-guided Sparrow I, coming off the production lines here and at the new Sperry Farragut plant in Bristol, Tennessee, meets these requirements— and more. It embodies the proved features of more than 100 differ- ent missiles designed, constructed and tested during a 7-year period — and the finest brains of an organization that has devoted more than 40 years creating and manufacturing automatic flight control and fire control systems. 6mSC0P£ C0MP4 r 566 Serving The Ships That Serve The Nation u BiW Single-Uptake, y[ Cootrolled-Superheot Boiler I Fitr itv r r.T ifoarn it WV hoilortt haro nt ' l ihf Mlanilnrti for nral tintl .Mf ' rvhanI rvHHi ' ln.

The brief message flashed by her commander, " Underway on Nuclear Power " , has already become an historic phrase — for the " Nautilus " has demonstrated that nuclear power can be controlled and utilized to perform constructive work. Men and women of Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics Cor- poration, builders of the " USS Nautilus " are proud of their part in helping not only the United States Navy but the entire world to get " Underway on Nuclear Power " .

Navy " s anti-submarine forces are being reinforced by one ol the most powerful tandem-rotor helicopters yet produced ... the Bell HSL-1. The first helicopter to be designed specifically for anti-submarine use the HSL-1 is a new aerial " counter-punch " that will deliver a knockout blow to undersea raiders. Flying at speeds up to 120 knots and equipped with lightweight homing weapons plus the latest in dipping sonar, the HSL is both " hunter " and " killer " . Utilizing a Bell-designed autopilot the big helicopter can hover motionless for long periods of time without pilot fatigue, while the sonar operator listens for enemy submarines. The rotor system of the HSL-1 incorporates the basic Bell patented system which has accumulated more than a million flight hours in world wide use. I ' caturing simplicity of rotor system . . . high rotor tip speed for maxi- mum power and lift . . . folding rotor blades . . . castcring wheels . . . hinged engine assembly . . . and compactness to facilit.iic hip- board service. The HSL-1 is another dramatic example of advanced engineering and ound design ... an integral part of all Bell helicopters for both military and commercial application . . . which have given Bell Air- r.ift Corporation world leadership in helicopters. BUFFALO. N. Y. FT. WORTH, TEXAS Qy i ' ' or ' cz T ii CORP. 573 p Midshipmen . . . Here is the word, the last word on developments and happenings of interest to Naval officers. The UNITED STATES NAVAL INSTITUTE is your authoritative source of information on the Navy. Through the Institute ' s monthly pubhcation, UNITED STATES NAVAL INSTITUTE PROCEEDINGS, you can keep abreast of the maritime pictui ' e. The PROCEEDINGS carries the world between its covers. Institute members and PROCEEDINGS contributors span the seven seas and aU of the lands bounded by those seas. Every major advance in the maritime picture is factually and interestingly reported in the UNITED STATES NAVAL INSTITUTE PROCEED INGS. Here is what thS dm ' irQs say about the United States Naval Institute and the lrM! States Naval Institute ' s Proceedings: • Fleet Admiral Ernest J. King: " have been a member of the U. S. Naval Insti- tute 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. " • 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. " • Fleet Admiral William F. Halsey, Jr.: " The need for every naval officer to be a well- informed 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. " I I eiet As a midshipman, you are eligible, along with all other regular Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard officers, to become a regular member of the United States Naval Institute. Annual dues are $3.00. These dues include a full year ' s subscription to the UNITED STATES NAVAL INSTITUTE PROCEEDINGS and the privilege of purchasing institute-pubUshed books at substantial savings.

This magnifica- tion reveals the unique composition of wrought iron, which is respxDnsible for its ability to resist corrosion. Note the tiny fibers that are threaded through the body of the high-purity iron. These fibers are glass-like silicate, and there are as many as 250,000 of them in each square inch of wrought iron section. These fibers serve as mechanical barriers when corrosion strikes, and because they are not affected by corrosion, they halt and detour the attack. This " defense in depth " discourages pitting and rapid penetration, and keeps wrought iron on the job longer, at lower cost per year. These fibers help in other important ways, too. They anchor the initial protective scale, which shields the underlying metal just as a scab protects a wound. They benefit welding because they provide their own flux in electric arc, acetylene torch, and forge fire methods. And they give wrought iron special resist- ance to fatigue and vibration because of their fibrous qualities. As you can see, no other metal duplicates the nature and composition of wrought iron ... so, no other metal duplicates the resulting service advantages. Write for our bulletin.

What is your single most important consideration in the pro- curement of replacement spare parts for trucks and military vehicles? Without a doubt it must be the guaranteed delivery of your COMPLETE order on schedule and at lowest possible costs. Just think it over: all the money you invest in an order which is not delivered IN FULL is wasted, because failure to acquire a single gear or special bolt or valve prevents you from putting your trucks or tanks into running condition. Today, many of the spare parts you require are no longer available in surplus, and likewise are not in production by the original manufacturer. In order to be fully able to meet ALL your requirements, a company must manufacture many of the spare parts needed. Such a company must have a specialized engineering staff, vast manufacturing facilities and huge financial resources. ; this regard. Northwestern Auto Parts Company stands alone. For over 36 years. Northwestern has specialized m supphing hard-to-get parts for trucks and military vehicles. We have anticipated the day when surplus stores would be depleted, and to that end we have assembled the world ' s largest engi- neering, manufacturing and research organization for the specialized production of spare parts for military vehicles. We urge you to compare our facilities, our resources, and, above all, our record of performance. We are prepared to post a surety bond guaranteeing payment of penalties against failure to deliver all parts of any order we accept. Investigate thoroughly and then judge for yourself the truth of our broad but completely valid claim: Northwestern Auto Parts Company is the world ' s largest and best source for replacement spare parts for military vehicles.

But ask anyone of them to define this skill . . . and he can ' t. He just knows he has something.

At Bendix Radio we seem to have attracted men who have this " touch " . . . this intangible something that ' s so essential, in our case, to the making of fine electronic equipment. Together they make lifeguarding and money saving equipment. In Aviation, it ' s dependable airborne and ground station navigational aids for the great commercial airlines, the military establish- ments and for executive aircraft. On the ground their handiwork is revealed in economical 2-way mobile radio systems for railroads, police and fire departments, taxicabs and for rolling units involved in industrial materials handling.

Another prototype, the MS-18 Pantobase (all bases) cargo assault airplane has recently been completed. Stroukoff. keeping foremost in mind the need of our military air arms and desiring to faithfully serve the Armed Forces, has developed and pro- duced these two new avitrucs to augment the ever increasing strength of the military services for defense. _ . : i A rcra Car uraf n ? tyesr r e vroAf. v. j.

To provide the world with versatile military air transportation, the famous C-119 Flying Boxcar joins forces with the C-123 Assault Transport. Together these " brolhers-in-combat " roll off the Fairchild assembly lines, and together they land or para-drop men and vital materiel wherever needed. Carrying over 11 tons payload, the combat-proven C-119 airdrops fully- equipped troops and bulky cargo in forward areas — while the rugged C-123 actually lands on unprepared terrain in the most advanced bases, with full pro- tection to personnel and equipment. Fairchild, pioneer in military air trans- portation, is proud of its part in the development and production of this great assault team — one of the world ' s most vital brother acts.
