JERAULD RICHARD GENTRY Enid, Oklahoma Jerry entered the Academy upon graduation from Kemper Military School in Boonville, Missouri, where he was active in athletics as well as excelling in his academic subjects. He made good use of his football prowess while at the Academy by win- ning a berth on the 150 pound football team. The long hours which he spent at football practices did not detract from his ability in the classroom, where he made better than average grades. Plebes found him a stern taskmaster in the arts of rifle manual, infantry drill, and personal appearance. The most admirable of his many fine traits was the genuine congeniality which won him many lasting friends throughout the Brigade. MICHAEL JOSEPH GUBITOSI Nutlet, New Jersey " Gub " tore himself away from the U.S. Navy ' s tug fleet to enter the halls of Bancroft. Academy time for Mike was divided largely between the stage and dieting. Everyone could be as- sured of a laugh or two when encountering Mike. He was often visited by his classmates for advice on anything from fine Italian dishes to fine Southern belles. Mike battled on the Plebe and First Battalion Football squads for the guard position. Not one for getting out of shape, he could often be seen running the obstacle course. If Mike doesn ' t gain recognition as the 20th century ' s greatest naval officer, he surely will become its greatest philosopher. LAWRENCE WILLIAM HANSEN Fresno, California Larry is one of the larger midshipmen. His tall, blond headed form was often found in the gym learning some of Karl Kitt ' s Judo. A great lover of his home state, California, he was often displeased with Maryland. His previous high school experience made him a real contender in many intramural sports including basketball, volleyball and cross country. He enjoyed good music, good literature and intelligent women. Quiet, sincere and con- scientious, he was well liked by his fellow inmates. 177

RICHARD ERNEST ENKEBOLL Santa Monica, California Santa Monica City College contributed " Rack-hound Ink " to the Academy. When not sleeping or engaging in bull sessions. Ink could be seen working at Plebe, Batt and Varsity Gymnas- tics, company and Batt squash, or sailing the " Freedom. " Ink was noted for his ability to coax sweet damsels from the four corners of the country to the yard for weekends and football games. He carried his captivating charm to Paris and brought back fond memories. Aside from digging up Farragut Field with his gas model airplanes and shoving his face in front of swinging squash racquets. Ink was known for maintaining his academic " star " throughout his four years at Navy. THEODORE WILLIAM ERIKSON St. Petersburg, Florida By way of New York ' s public school system and Admiral Farragut Academy, Ted entered the cloistered life at the semi- nary on the Severn. During plebe year he was often found on Wednesdays and Saturdays busily engaged in practicing cere- monies and close order drill at the request of the White Tower. However, upperclass years found his interest broadening to in- clude such activities as sailing for the First Battalion and finally, that vice that overcomes all of us, dragging. Although never a slash in Dago, he always seemed to have an apropos French phrase for any situation. We can be sure that any future leaves will find him basking in the sun of Florida ' s sunny beaches. DONALD HERBERT FISHER Baltimore, Maryland " The Fish " came our way straight from Baltimore Polytechnic High School and never seemed to have any real trouble with his studies. During his free periods, he could usually be found studying chess or stumping a classmate over a checkered board. A Physical Training standout, he was the envy of his classmates in most of the athletic tests. He was also an avid devotee of good posture and personal appearance; and there were few plebes who escaped his attention when they were not up to par. His never-failing smile and warm personality brightened many a long day for his classmates. 176

Bill certainly gave the Bull and Swimming instructors something to remember. His keen interest in girls changed Second Class Year to quoting diamond prices. This same keen interest and sincere desire give Bill a surefire combination for a successful service career. LEO GREGORY HYATT Salem Depot, New Hampshire Lee took the Southern route from Salem Depot to Annapolis. After four very successful years at Woodbury High, where he was outstanding in football, basketball and baseball, Lee found a determined opponent called " Southern drawl. " Always a fighter, Lee mastered the drawl as well as his subjects. He made nothing but the best grades while at USNA, and was eager to share his knowledge with his classmates. An avid sports fan as well as a participant, Lee was a top rooter for Navy and the Boston Red Sox. He was especially fond of motorcycling and Dixieland music. Lee ' s athletic ability, good taste and smiling face will go with him to the far corners of the earth. DONALD EDWARD JONES Brentwood, Pennsylvania Don came to the Academy by way of Columbian Prep, and spent four years telling people that Pittsburgh is spelled with two " t ' s " and an " h " on the end. He insisted that Steam was all one horrible nightmare and not a course at Navy. Don was a good athlete and during his stay at Annapolis, he contributed to many First Company victories.
