Here was our symbol of authority and command, whether you cite its official-looking appear- ance or the blue flag with two stars that you see atop its flagstail. Here the Superintendent has his ollice, and here the dreaded Academic Board convenes after each examination period. lVlany a joke has been posed about the second deck of this building and the ilong green table' in its conference room, but for those of us who visited here, there was always the inadvertent quickening of the step as we passed. Here also you will find the amazing press which produced the countless forms that inevitably found their way to Bancroft Hall and became Such a potent force in our lives. Plebes could not walk adjacent to the building, and it was a prized Youngster privilege to use thc short-cut that its walk provided to Gate Three. We quickly learned the importance of authority and chain of command and it was the Administration Building that ailorded us a great measure of this feeling." 1904 we o 4 f L. 0 A'! J I I Q BH .

This is our Chapel, which we firmly believe is among the most heautiful houses of worship in the world. As it is the center of the 'Yard to all who walk through, it is also tho focal, point of the midshipmanis life. Wlietliei' we chose to worship God here or in one of the many churches of Annapolis, wc all derived strength and moral encouragement from its presence. We found that the life we had chosen was not the easiest one to follow and the training that we received at the Academy made a strong helicf and faith in Cod all the more necessary and vital. From the crypt of John Paul Jones in its lower depths to the heautiful stained-glass windows, it posed as an un- paralleled source of inspiration. W-u.-k..,., L. HlVluch of the Academyis most honored tradition centered ahout this huilding, it is :for the Chapel dome that newly elevated memlmers of the Third Class first look upon returning to Annapolis Roads after the corn- pletion of their first practice cruise. Legend has it that they are not fYoungsters' until the first glimpse of that golden dome is caught. MlVfidshipnien could joke ahout almost everything, frut the Chapel was one ohject that never found itself the ohject of jest. The strains of Lfiternal Father, Strong to Save, were always heard for thi- first time. We can derive much strength and satisfaction in future years in knowing that here, each Sunday, its heautiful words and prayer will go out to all men of the Service in all parts of the worldf, -. 1 E 'ileaka 0 . .IULL mama ,HG fl ' 1 w '3t"'H nz P4 e','+"Jf M. kph- , X -2 3 1 1 .

Rotrige Ll- Robert L- Trett Protestant Chaplain Catholic Chaplain ASSlS!Ufli Pfmesfam ChHP11liU From the long, lonely days of Plehe Summer when we hrst heard their warm "Stop hy and see me sometime," we knew that the chaplains were wonder- ful people to have around. Their warmth, sincerity, and devotion to hoth God and the Service was forever inspirational along the long road of the transition from eivilian to military man. These three men had an enormous task, one to which they devoted their time and guidance with un- tiring efforts. lt wasnit the easiest thing in the world to coordinate the varied religious activities of the Brigade hut with their leadership, everything always seemed to turn out the right way. They were never too husy to pause for a few moments and talk over our problems with us and their advice was always the In-st. To the Brigade, their mere presence was their true significance. Conducting daily morning Mass and Communion services, working with the NACA and the Newman Cluh, the choirs, and handling the annual lVlessiah performance were just some of the activities that made their day a long and lull one. Their cheerful smiles and friendly words were welcome tonics which had the power to make even the lowliest Plehe :feel at home. We will always rernemhcr Chaplain liennett, Chaplain llotrige, and Chaplain Trett lor the hand that they ollered to us. Some ol us who were married in the Chapel following graduation will have double cause to do so, hut all of us can't help hut he better men and naval ollieers from the association with them. Ahove all, they taught us hy example that we have an ohligation to Cod as well as to the Service. Marching to Chapel Fl A 1 if i. E!1,fKTLKUti7K?h18A L E 1.25313 n.. a. ,. .gg g, " if .

Under the leadership of Professor Gilley, they continually maintained their place among the best of their kind. For many years now, this cheerful gentleman has devoted his time to developing the harmony and beauty that we all came to associate with the choirs. Their hymns and anthems brought a special meaning to these services, and few could be unimpressed by the effect of the two choral groups in unison. , , 4 1 r P Antiphonal Choir.

Here, perhaps, we may find the Naval Academy's most striking version of the old and the new, afforded by Dahlgren's venerable appearance and Ward's more modern features. Home of the De- partment of Ordnance and Gunnery as well as a milti- tude of other functions, Dahlgren Hall continually amazed us with its versatility. During our four year stay, we have seen this building serve as a ballroom, a concert hall, a held house, an armory, an indoor baseball field, a gym- nasium, and for two departing classes, a hallowed hall in which graduation exercises were held. Its plaques and flags allordecl much of the rich tradition of the Academy and the Navy. Its rangy conhnes gave the Executive Department a chance for parades on tllC rare occurrences when it rained on Wednesdays and much drill space to the Department of Ordnance and Cunnery. 3 F45 'A 5 As 5,7-Q.. u.. , -:YR QQ. - ,.

From that time on, the world of breechblocks, recoil mechanisms, and computers was a big part of ou 1' academic lives. Many of us came to dread the Walks over to Ward Hall or the occasional trip to Dahlgren or the gun shed for the competitions. However, we all came to agree that the program of theoretical and practical instruction was indispensable to success in our future naval careers. From the 'nuts and bolts' course of Second Class Year, we proceeded very rapidly, . A it seemed, into the intricacies of modern naval tire control with its maze of directors, computers, ballistic predictions, and so much more. Who can forget the hours we spent poring over rangekeeper flow diagrams or the countless dehnitions and symbols which we had to memorize? How about the many times we heard, "Gentlemen, this isnlt a memory course," and then wondered who was kidding whom? Captain John V.

Often the butt of many jokes because of its antiquity and general appearance, the stadium was still one of our favorite parts of the Academy because of the activities that went on here. We can remember football games, track meets, pep rallies, bonfires, and march-ons that we enjoyed here as midshipmen. It was symbolic to a great extent of the high caliber of Navy athletics and the great pride that we had in our teams. This year has seen the farewell to Thompson Sta- dium as the Aeademyas main athletic field. Soon to be replaced by the new Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, it saw its last contest in October. Fittingly enough, it was an Army-Navy game and was witnessed -by our Colmmander-in-Chief. It was the home for many years of a great many thrills forthe Brigade and will be remembered as such alwaysf . . .

J 'H Thompson Stadium always brought thoughts of that time of year when the Navy and the Academy supported our football teams. Even though most of us preferred to see the home games in Baltimore, the Saturday afternoons when the team played in An. napolis were also high points of the schedule for both dragging and relaxation. Who can forget the excitement when the Brigade, as one, would yell itself hoarse when the team would come on the Held, preceded by Bill the Goat and his keepers? This was the moment when the spirit was at its highest, when we all knew that we were to he the twelfth man on the field. Being one of the cheering could he likened to our own three-ring circus, in which we experienced all sorts of emotions ranging from wild exhilaration to utter despair. Here we and our guests rooted the Big Blue ,Team home and looked forward to heating Army and those football trips away. . . . at hom, which bfwaqht lamina... Q.. X 2.x A 'Sf at 0Yster Bowl weekend. We formed up in the darndest places. On the way bark from Norfolk The high points of any .football season at the Academy were the frequent trips that the Brigade made to watch the team play. We would climb aboard busses, trains, and even LST's to journey to some of the best liberty ports on the East coast to help our team do battle and to enjoy a few hours of unaccustomed freedom afterwards. These trips will always provide us with many memories of times when we could put on a show, too, and have a great time besides. The crazy confusion of early morning bus rides and pre- game march-ons will never be forgotten, not to mention the many pleasant hours of finding the best Hspotsi' of Philly and Baltimore. This was the time when even the hardest soul couldn't help but feel a little proud to he one of the '6Pampered Pets." "Ladies and Gentlemen, the Brigade of Midshipmen!"

The past season was one of the most successful in Naval Academy history, and we'll like to remember this team as the best ever. It had to be a good one . . . In 1954, the Tars electrified the grid world by zipping through a 8-2 record, featured by the unfor- gettable 27-20 heartstopper over Army and the 21-0 whitewash of Ole Miss in the Sugar Bowl. Remember the fabulous days of Welsh to Beagle? ln '55, All- East tackle John Hopkins captained the team and they went through a 6-2-1 season, highlighted by the emer- gence of two Youngster standouts, Ned Oldham and Tom Forrestal. ln '56, Eddie had another great team, led now by Earle Smith. Weill remember most the way we tore Baltimore apart after beating a team from out west in South Bend for the first time in twelve long years. We lost only to Tulane, and tied both Duke and Army. Big Willie Whitmire made All- East from his center position, the big "Reif,' made his first appearance, and we turned down a bid to the Cotton Bowl. "Wait till next year," we said.

On the next weekend, the Indians from William and Mary journeyed up from WilliamslJ111'g for our annual Homecoming Game. The regulars had to do most of the work this time as the Redskins put up a stiff first half battle. Our depth told the story, how- ever, and the budding Steamroller was again on top, 33-6. Dick Dagampat scored two TD,s, one of them on a spectacular double lateral play after Oldham and Wayne McKee had moved the ball 47 yards. Har- ry Hurst also got two scores on runs of 17 and 36 yards, and Oldham got the fifth touchdown as well as converting three times. It made for a very happy afternoon for both mids and the old grads.

We were dismayed by the outcome, but couldn't help but feel that maybe it was a good thing in a way. We knew that the team had been tense, and that this was probably what they needed to take the pressure off and jell them into a solid unit.

The peak was reached none too soon, for the following Saturday was Knute Rockne Day out in South Bend and the lVIids were the guests of honor. We knew that the Fighting Irish were out for blood, they were undefeated and we were definitely the underdogs. But they hadn't reckoned with the fired-up Blue and Cold, both on the field and back in the new field house where the BAC had rigged up the unfor- gettable 'fcheering by remote control." They definitely hadn't figured on a "substitute', fullback named Ray Wellborn, who ran wild all afternoon. Playing like a man on fire, Ray scored all three Navy touchdowns, one on a brilliant 79-yard run. For the afternoon, he made 112 yards on 10 carries and averaged 50.2 yards on three punts. In spite of his brilliant performance, we knew that here was a great team effort, as the Irish only netted four yards in the second half. Ray was named as the AP back of the week and the team shot up to seventh place in the weekly poll.

Spring at the Naval Academy would never have been quite complete without the appearance of Coach "Dinty', Moore's lacrosse stalwarts, always among the best teams which Navy fielded. This year saw a record turnout of candidates, the remnants of which have been welded into a topnotch offensive and defensive unit. There has even been talk of another champion- ship squad, but an early writing has seen only Loyola of nearby Baltimore played. The team shows a red-hot attack unit, strong midfielders, and a stout defense, hopes are high for another great year. The attack is spearheaded by the great Jack Carter, who pours them in from every imaginable angle. His tremendous scoring abilities are a coach's dream. Teamed with him are Gene McKenzie, one of the strongest shotmakers around, and Youngster Karl Ripplemeyer, who seems destined for great things. Coach "Dinty" Moore and Captain Ed Britton.

The crease is well guarded when he and segundo Jim Fiene cavort in front of opposing attackers. Fiene plays a wicked game with this offense and can always be found breaking up one of their forays. Diminutive Mickey Carson seems to be the best of the goalies, which is a tribute in itself g he is ably backed up by Bill Dukes and the competition between the two al- ways keeps Navy's goal well guarded. The midfielders, strong on potential and weak only in seasoning, are headed by footballer Ned Old- ham and Lee Gies. Bob Byng has also shown quite well from this position. The mere narrowing down of the squad from its original proportions has, in itself, produced a fine team. Men like Otto Helweg, J.D.

T e Field House Leaving Thompson Stadium, we now bring you to the Fieldhouse, rightly called the Academy's pride and joy. At the end of Plebe year, we learned to live with the many noises of construction as the dream began to take form out on old Holland Field. We anxiously awaited its completion during the next two years and the much-needed effect that it would have on our lives. Finally, '57's June Week brought ,its introduction to the Brigade and we'll not soon forget the feeling of awe when we first saw the many benefits that it would bring to us. Here we watched the Four Lads, cheered on many of the winter sports teams, welcomed visiting teams, and used its massive facilities for our own recreation. Whatever the activity, we feel that it is the finest of its kind anywhere. A long-awaited dream had at last been ful- filled.

Every week, the Naval Academy would play host to a number of visiting athletic teams from all over the country. It was the duty ofthe men ofthe Reception Committee to take charge of these visitors in order to show them around, answer their questions, and to generally make them feel at home. Even though these men were known to get out of a weekend watch or two to attend to their duties, the job of welcoming these many and varied squads did not always seem like the easiest task in the world. lt was an important function, one which did much to further good feelings between, the Academy and a part of the civilian world.

A lot of height, a lot of inexperience, and a lot of Spirit gives the profile of this year's basketball war- riors. Coach Ben Carnevale must have been a happy man, indeed, when workouts began last fall, he had the cream of one of the great Plebe teams in Navy his- tory plus several returning veterans to wear the Blue and Cold. Better yet, the Youngsters brought a most unusual treasure-height. Choosing to look to 1116 future, Carnevale mixed his Youngsters with the veter- ans throughout the busy schedule to best advantage, with the overall result that Navy looks like a coming Eastern power. The season had its ups and downs, with the team looking brilliant on several occasions and painfully cold on others.

They gave powerful Duke quite a scare before running out of gas in the closing minutes. Low points were encountered as wellg several "off" perfor- mances resulted in losses to Maryland, Princeton, and William and Mary. The team was always exciting to watch, win or lose, they played the traditional Hrace- horse" style characteristic of all Navy teams. Teams such as Notre Dame, Duke, Manhattan, and other strong fives filled the schedule. We were always proud of them. Captain Al Swanson finished off his four years with a great season, his play and leadership were always above reproach. Hustling Joe Sendek was often bril- liantg his greatest performance came against Army, when he scored 28 points in a losing effort. . K f..- be Isrank petiggi Bower and a Lion in battle.

Jay Metzler and Dick Brown cracked into the starting lineup right away and showed play all season that may put them among Navyis greats. Jim Bower showed signs of greatness with a style of play that soon made him a favorite with the Fieldhouse galleries. Hank Egan, Frank Delano, and Dick Macke rounded out a group that added much needed height as well as skill to our basketball fortunes.

Going into the Army game with 10-9 record, we were perhaps slight favorites to win our fourth straight over the Cadets. Facing a stubborn zone defense that refused to give, the Midshipmen were in trouble from the start. Failing to score ,in the first five minutes, the initial deficit was simply too great to overcome. Sendek closed out his career in a blaze of glory as he scored from all over the floor for the rest of the game. The final count stood at 68-58, in favor of the Army, but our men of the hardwood put up a stiff fight in Sli IL' defeat. Losing relatively few by graduation, Coach Carnevale and the Academy can look forward to great possibilities in future basketball wars. Fierce battle under the boards.

There is small wonder if you HFC, because you are approaching Bancroft Hall, the home of the midshipmen. There a1'e many amazing things about this building, but pelt- haps its outstanding feature is the fact that 1t houses the entire Brigade. We can remember how its complex structure made complete the mass confusion of Plebe Summer, in fact, there are very few midshipmen who can hon- estly say that they have even seen every part of Bancroft Hall during their four year stay under its roof. It can be accurately likened to a small city in itselfg at least, so it seemed to the un- fortunate plebe who had to run an errand from the First Wing to the Sixth Wing. We had our l'0oms here, some of our classrooms, our store, our barber shops, our tailor shops, our recrea- tion halls, our messhall, and most of the other needs that we encountered. As it was our home for four years, the great majority of the memories that will come to us in the future will evolve from Bancroft Hall. Even after we lived here for awhile, we still couldn't help but be amazed at the size and changing moods of our 'Gbig barn." Our hctional character of "Mother Bancroft" looked down kindly and sternly in both good times and bad. It could look gay and bright and it could look forbidding and dark. But, to most of us, it meant the center of compan- ionship and friendships that can not be broken or forgotten. Under her roof, we lived as one for four years, experienced the same triumphs and defeats, and learned that no man is worth anything without friends. For this, we will feel eterrlally grateful to f'Mother Bancroft." ...v hump, awaqolfwm. home...

From the time we saw our first rally when we were lowly Plebes until that last big one before the Army game during First Class Year, we were to shout ourselves hoarse for the Navy teams. Here, in our front yard, you could find the guiding light of this feeling that there was no better team than a Navy team. This was Tecumseh, who yearly put up with our pen- nies, our shouts, and a weekly coat of paint during the football season and those Army weekends. The venerable old man looked down upon us with favor this last year, and the pep rallies and demonstrations which periodically took place on the stones of his realm were better than ever.

Whether it was the light displays which we saw over the main entrance to Bancroft Hall, Tecumseh smiling down on us in his many brilliant colors, or the tremendous Hcheering by remote control? for the Notre Dame game, we knew that here was an organization that really got the job done. And how about those posters which continually adorned the Yard no matter where one looked? Sending the team off. The pep rallies will be what we will remember .the most, howeverg how can you describe them with JuS- tice?

As probably the 4' it . lt! V first sight of Bancroft Hall that most of us had, it took a prom- inent part in our lives and will play a large role in future memories. Here we found the very nerve center of Academy activity. Looking about, one could see the many offices from which the daily activities of the midshipmen are governed with a firm hand. Here was the home of the Executive Department, whose job it was to assure that our ship was a taut one. From the office of the Commandant, Executive Olhcer, and the officers of the watch, our most minute affairs were supervised and regu- lated. Here one could hnd the lVlain Office, the very hub of the daily routine. Here was the home also of the many administrative offices which governed the other aspects of life within Bancroft Hall. Whether it was getting a special liberty chit approved or going to see the chaplain about something, the llotunda was usually the standard destination.

Here were the officers that were charged with the huge task of running the Academy organization. These men taught us the vital importance in a military way of life of chain of command and authority.

Besides getting the necessary day-to-day tasks accomplished, we learned the meaning of responsihility and rank as'we moved step hy step through the watch organization.

Of course, we'll remember the Executive Depart- ment the most for the many times that they fried us. Soon after taking the oath, we were introduced to the infamous Form Two, we had no idea at the time just how powerful a force that this harmless looking slip of paper was going to wield during the next four years. We were "put on the pap" for everything from making coffee in our rooms to studying after taps, the daily raids of the oilicers of the watch often left us with the impression that it rained Forms Two in- stead of water. There were all sorts of ways to pay the penalty for trying to beat the system, some of us were ushers, sports contest officials, groundskeepers, and every so often, even helped to put books together. Marching on our own 'cdrill teams" provided the ma- jority of the hours, however, until First Class Year, when we began to sweat our beloved weekends. It made for never a dull moment, though. Salty Sam and the Brigade will never forget such characters as '6Bonzo,,' who kept things 'ihoppingi' in more ways than one. We found that crime doesnit pay, but we usually couldn't resist trying, anyway. "Some days you win, some days you lose .... M The law arrives.

We also learned from the Executive Depart- Utetlt the importance of maintaining the highest con- ditions in both personal and material appearance. The inspection became another integral part of our existence under Bancroft Hall's roof soon after we arrived. lt wasn't long before we couldn't think of Saturday noon without its personnel inspection by the C0mpany or battalion ollicer or Sunday morning with- Qlll its room inspections.

The Executive Department also had the duty of trying to instill in us thc soundest principles of leader- ship and naval administration. We were introduced to this phase of their activities during Second Class Year, when we began the naval leadership course given by our company ollicers. Naval administration and military law were ollered to us as members of thc first class.

The Rotunda was also where we found the Recep- tion Room, where we tried to make our guests feel at home as they visited us. The friendly appearance of this room was always a welcome sight to any mid- shipman, for it signified friendship and often the pres- ence of loved ones. Visits from parents, relatives, and friends came to mean a great deal to us as a much- needed hreak from the daily routine. We could not pass its open doors without thinking of more pleasant times and things, lVlom and Dad, the brothers and sis- ters, and that next dragging weekend.

Here we usually met our drags, whether it was the OAO or that blind date who had 'gbrickv written all over her. Right after the noon meal for- mation aud inspection on Saturday, the passageway in front of the Reception Room would be converted into a mass of confusion as we searched the crowd for the face we were looking for. 4'Hi, sweetheart.

You walked her back to the draghouse, picked up the luggage, said good- bye to the drag mother, and made your painful way to the bus station.

PALM:-4 '-U-'A a fit: Memorial Hall Climbing the ladder opposite the main entrance to the Rotunda, one finds himself in Memorial Hall, perhaps one of the most beautiful places at the Academy. From the moment that the Hrst glimpse of Lawrence's immortal words is caught, the aura of tradition comes down and surrounds, when the myriad of paintings, statues, and battle trophies comes into full view, the impression is complete. Its name implied its mission-to serve as a memorial to the Navy's countless heroes and to instill a measure of this tradition and inspiration in those who strive for a commission in its ranks.

From the initial deluge of forms to fill out, gear to stencil, and customs to learn, we could see that the summer was going to he a long one.

The patient ensigns of '54 helped us over a great deal of the tough spots and they became our first examples from which we tried to pattern our- selves.

We had watched them return from cruise, looking saltier than we could have imaginedg this was our first indication that maybe Bancroft Hall didn't belong to us after all. Parents' Weekend came and went, and soon we were watching with foreboding as they began to straggle back from leave. Then our summer companies were broken up as we moved into our new roomsg we hated to say goodbye to Plebe Summer for more reasons than one. Finally the fateful day arrived and a sense of urgency filled the air. Soon the dreaded cry of "Plebes will be plebes" echoed throughout Bancroft Hall and Plebe Year began .... ir, there are now . . ."

Soon we found ourselves in the midst of the dreaded "Dark Ages," when even the first class seemed ready to quit. Now we settled down in earnest to our daily tasks of folding laundry, making runs to the steerage, looking up professional questions, and keeping up with the books. We thought that Spring leave would never arrive, but it finally put an end to all this. As spring returned to lVlothe1' Bancroft, everything looked brighter and we began to feel that the end was finally in sight. We began to count the waning days as never before and to eagerly anticipate and make plans for our first June Week. We watched our Iirsties make ready for graduation and began to get excited about cruise. At last, exams were over, June Week came and went, and we bade farewell to those of '55.

Appropriate to the idea that Bancroft was a small city in itself, the many and varied service facilities made life a little more complete and convenient.

Here were sources of many a laugh and an occasional gnashing of teethg we had Jerome and the uniform that didn't always come back minus the spots.

Class fficers Our class officers were chosen each year to fulhll the administration of the non-military functions that we encountered. The Class of 1958 has been fortunate during our four-year stay here to have elected such outstanding men to H11 these posts. Their tasks were many and often unsungg these jobs somehow lacked the glamour of a battalion commander or six-striper. During this last year, the ofhcers that we had chosen before going on cruise performed their tasks with the same skill and etliciency which we had come to take almost for granted. The things which they accomplished are a part of our lives here that we will remember with a double measure of pride-for they were things we can say were done by and for the class. xr -as Iirigarlc EXt?CllfliU!?

Bri ade Executive Committee Instrumental to the proper running of the Bri- gade was the honor concept to which we all had to adhere. Responsible for the administration of this SYSICITI was the Brigade Executive Committee, whose members labored often far into the night to investigate reP01'Ied breaches of the code, to insure that justice Would be meted out, and to report their findings to the g0tmnandant. The Committee was composed of the flgade Commander, the upperclass presidents, the FIFSI Class Secretary, and six battalion representa- tives. To these men fell the solemn duty of safeguard- ing the honor and the integrity of the Naval Academy. Compan Represen Every year, each company elected one of its members to represent it in carrying out duties con- nected with class activities and to act in a liaison c'1 . . - paclty with our class ollicers.

Luck Ba Looking back upon our three years with the Lucky Bag brings back a host of memoriesg it seems, probably, to the men who put this book together that they've never done anything else. In trying to answer the question, 6'What goes into a Lucky Bag?,', one can think all day and not come up with the right answer, so it is that only those who brought it from its days of infancy to its present form can possibly understand the thousands of intangibles that entered into its life. Back in the fall of 1955, the class elected the editor-in-chief, Larry Gifford, and the business man- ager, John Davisg the book was born. Those early days were spent mostly in small meetings, talking over- ideas and laying the all-important framework on which the Bag would function until our graduation. The editor began to recruit interested members of the class, while working with the parent Bags and begin- ning to see what a huge job he had cut out for himself. Cdr. Ray Wiggins Officer Representative Larry Gifford ComLucky Bag The beginning of Second Class year saw opera- tions begin on a full scale. Chuck Medlock was "bor- rowed" from the Splinter to become managing editor and Otto Rice began the long and tedious job of col- lecting and editing the seemingly endless class biog- raphies. The business manager began sending out bids to the several concerns interested in becoming our contractors. Gifford and Medlock logged many hours down in the First Wing basement as the first dummy of the book began to take form. The remainder of the stall' was gradually picked, and we soon found our- selves with what resembled, at least, a working year- book staff. We chose our printer and engraver, and by the time that the Ring Dance rolled around, the biographies were in, the dummy was in its final state, and we felt that a good start had been made. Now began the real work that ultimately has made this book possible. Every day was devoted to the Bag, plus a '4few" evening hours and weekends. We found that deadlines would not wait, and although missed a couple, we usually managed to get the copy in before the ax would fall. Company Representatives.

Associate editors Frank Butterworth and Dan Mayers sacrificed many an hour down in our Hmauso- leumv, and to them and Medlock goes the heartfelt thanks of the beleaguered editor, who found early that he couldnit devote much time to layout. Mike O'Connor and Carl Triebes began to turn in the art work that made them topsg the many sketches and car- toons in the hook are due to their untiring eiforts. The photography, our real pride and joy, was handled by mad Joe Fenick, with many assists from Mike Mc- Lane and Phil Given. Who can forget the perennial "Where,s that picture, Joe?" every time he walked in the door? We also found that the copy would he a headache ofthe first magnitude. Larry Larson, of Log fame, and Lee Gies helped with the sports, and Roger Manley aided the editor with the rest.

The business staff was wonderful, Bill Duncan handled the tremendous job of advertising, while Al Victor pulled the circulation strings to perfection. One ofthe most thankless jobs fell to John Chevalier, who coordinated the work of editorial and business. His staifmates still wonder at the marvelous job he did with the scheduling of all the group and biography pictures that was necessary. The warmest appreciation for a job well done is also due to our contractors, their Work and assistance were essential to everything we did.

Trident Society The Trident Society was conceived as an outlet for the interests of those of us who had talents in the art and literature fields. Through its Executive Committee and its various clubs, the Society successfully lived up to these aims. The annual competitions brought out the best in football posters, short stories, professional a1'ticles, photography, and art that the Brigade had to oiler. The Society had a lot of work to do in coordinating these activities, but the results of displaying the ideas of the Brigade were always worthwhile.

Through their efforts, the Brigade had at its daily disposal a hne, convenient source of information and entertainment.

They worked through the Public lnformation Oflicer, and their agenda was usually long and varied. Al Car- retta and his able band of cohorts continued the hue work of the PRC in even finer fashion this year.

Through a program of guest speakers, Hlms, and discussions, any midshipman inter- ested in todayls affairs could find a fine outlet for his views. They even wrote pape1's on their favorite subjects, to be judged according to merit.

After- dinner speaking, Sunday afternoon movies over in Mahan Hall, and frequent meetings were all means to this end. The presidents of the various clubs in this organization brought the usual interesting program to the Brigade through their efforts. Above all, the Clubs stimulated a growing interest in this aspect of our educations which is becoming ever more prominent to the success of the naval ollicer.

Chess Club Although the butt of many a jest, the Chess Club was a going organization at Navy. The main activity was the Brigade-wide com- petition lor the Ditmar Cup, but no ellort was wasted when the check-maters took on their counterparts from up there on the Hudson. Indeed, what other non-athletic activity could boast of such a competition with the Black Knights in the true tradition of Army-Navy? Perry Jackson headed this year's aggregation, as Navy continued to show that within these walls reside some master strategists. Model Club If you had the ability and the desire to do things with your hands, then the Model Club was just made to order. With the expert assistance of the Naval Academy lVluseum model maker, members of the club had the opportunity to work on projects ranging from the fine railroad layout in the First Wing base- ment to the more conventional ship and air- craft models. Bill Prince directed a program this year that kept all hands busy. With the fine facilities that were available, this club always had something worthwhile to do. tamp Club Many of us have pursued the "Hobby of Kings," and the Stamp Club provided an opportunity for interested members of thc Brigade to retain this pastime here in Bancroft Hall to best advantage. Frequent meetings gave club members ample chance to keep their collections in top shape through comparison and discussion. lf you ever wondered who that was that you saw looking through all the let- ters during morning mail call, it might have been one of the Stamp Clubls hnest hunting for some new specimens. g Radio Club Those who were Hharnsv among us must have heen delighted when they arrived at Bancroft Hall-for here was the elaborate layout known throughout the amateur radio world as WIEADO. The facilities that we had here would have made even the most fanatic of radio hugs happy, and the l3rigade's 6'hams" always put them to good advantage. This year, Under Dave lflertke, the cluh continued to lol- low their hobhy in the ways ol' practical ex- Petience and just plain lun, hesides giving the lilaval Academy an occasional plug over the LW and voice circuits.

The Combined Engineering Clubs, headed by Walt Peters, offered many opportunities for these desires to be fulfilled, indeed, one could hnd anything here from nuclear accelerators to talks on naval ship stability.

Soon after we took the oath, we began to look forward to the day when we would wear the two symbols of brotherhood that would forever mark the Class of 1958-the ring and the crest. To this group of men fell the long and hard task of designing these emblems that would be the possessions of a lifetime. They were organized early in the fall of Plehe year, and from that time until the night of nights finally arrived, they worked hard to produce the best. Ideas, preliminary designs, class votes, orders, and the final distribution were all jobs that had to be taken care of. George Segelhacher headed a committee whose talent and eliiciency WCl'C second to none-and for the two symbols that they produced, the class will he eternally grateful.

Neverthe- less, he quickly settled down to the task and showed the skill that has made him one of the top coaches in the sport. Back from last yearls team were Captain A1 Roach, along with John Gunther, Bob lVIcCregor, and Carl Peterson, all of whom had seen some experience. Segundos Ben Todd, John Vaughan, Jim Ramsey, and QC01'ge Ballentine rounded out a team that proved con- Slstently harder to beat as the season wore on. Losing only one match during "regularH season shooting, to a strong St. John's team, the rifleers went into the big match with Army as definite underdogs. With a great light, characteristic of all Army-Navy contests, we lost lJY Only one point, 14.32-14431, with Roach firing a great 288.

A big winter drawing card this past winter was Coach Chet Phillips' gymnasts, who had another of their fine seasons. With several outstanding individuals and strong team depth, they came off with all but two meets, Httingly enough, these were to be the strongest teams in the East, Penn State and Army.

Furman Sheppard came Ihr on strong after his amazing Hnish last year to become one of the finest sidehorse men in the East. His flawless routine won many a point. Captain Ken lVlcNutt fin- ished his four years on the lVlaeDonough boards with a year that must certainly rank him as one of the finest ever to wear the Blue and Gold.

Losing only to Penn State lmefore the liig one with Army, the team was in a prime position for an upset, but, as usual, the Cadets had too much depth. With only lVleN11tt and Houston eopping first places, the Black Knights came od the victors, 58lQ-37lA3.

Carrying on the tradi- tions ofthe days when Navy was the scourge of Eastern intercollegiate competition, these intra-Brigade finals yearly bring out the best fighters in the Hall and pro- vide a great deal of spectator interest and thrills. This year's finals were run, as usual, by Coach Art Rubino, with an able assist from Manager Tommy Reeves. Working their way up through premilinary, quarter- and semi-final eliminations, the fourteen finalists were truly the best that Navy had to offer.

Losing a sp1'inter of Peltier's caliber was serious from any outlook, but the out- standing performances of a group of Youngster stand- outs did much to alleviate. the situation and make the season a much happier one for both Coach Higgins and Navy swimming fans.

Another outstanding Youngster, Ward O'Brien, took the first diving spot away from iirstie Mickey O'Beirne and consistently showed a form that will make him one of the best in the East.

We'11 always remember the hours spent in the N3N's for the good times we had and for the new out- l00k they provided for us concerning aviation. Then there were the occasional flights up to Atlantic City in the UF's. We didn't get much flying done, but most of us got pretty well checked out in navigating by loran. It seemed that there were also a few" hours spent over in Classroom One, either during bad weather periods or when we were awaiting our turns with the N3N,s. We might have thought that Robert Taylor must have been the only good pilot in the Navy, but we must admit that these sessions over ip the projection room were good for one thing-- S Ceplng. The time spent with the Aviation Department across the river at the Naval Air Facility proved both enjoyable and valuable. Through it, we found that paval aviation was to play an important part in our uture careers. P! io watch Cross Country Believing that this was definitely our year, the harriers of Coach Jim Gehrdes launched the most suc- cessful season in years. Led hy Captain Dick Winter, they won all but one meet, and the loss was to a great Penn State squad. Such tough foes as NYU, George- town, Pitt, Syracuse, and Maryland were downed as the team pointed for Army. It had been twelve long years since Navy had come away with a win over the Black Knights. After finishing a strong second to Cor- nell in the Heptagonals, the team felt ready and ready they were-Army couldn't match the record-breaking strides of Brad Smith or the Navy depth. The final count showed us on top to the tune of 24-32. lt was truly a keynote to one of the greatest fall sports sea- sons on record. nun ' ',.r , , Mi ,l a ' f l . xlwlf. l I ,I -al.-M1 1 -.wt Left to right: Front row-Boyer, Smith, Palmer, Monaghan, Kunkle, Winter, Young, Baker, MacLeod, Krese, Chavez.

Q pam Life at sea naturally breeds an inordinate attrac- tion for those "far away places", and we found our- selves to be no exceptions. From the day that we stepped aboard our ships, we found ourselves looking forward to the hours that we would spend in the ports and countries to which we would go. The Atlantic was crossed in time, and soon, the cruise force split up and proceeded into three different ports on the Mediterranean side of Spain. Whether we stopped at Barcelona, Valencia, or Malaga, the ulti- mate destination was gay Madrid. It was here that we enjoyed for the first time the experience of life with another people, and the 1'ole of ambassador. The night clubs, the bullfights, the souvenir shops, the guided tours-all combined to make the four days in Madrid some of the best that we had ever known. We'll long remember the sights we saw, the trains wc rode, and the crazy feeling experienced when we tried to make a cab driver understand where we wanted to go . . . A quiet part of Madrid. E We met the nicest people. I On the Thames. England I After bidding farewell to Spain, we proceeded quickly northward, and soon found ourselves enjoying the hospitality of England. Some of us were lucky and wealthy enough to be able to make the trip across the Channel to Paris, but most were more than content to wend their way via train to London, the city of the Pllb and Big Ben. Although we found that the big city often closed a little early at night, the daylight hours were more than full. Seeing many places of which we had heard so much, we began to get that Hwell- iraveledi' feeling-Vlfestminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Scotland Yard, and so many more were our flestlnations. A few were even lucky enough to get into the Palladium, where Danny Kaye was playing. We found the English people serious, but very friendly, English scenery. Nothing like the guided tour. and eouldn,t help but feel that we had discovered a 13112 understanding and bond with these people.

We had always heard great things about Second Class summer, but even then we weren't prepared for the many activities that waited for us. From the very first day, we knew that this one was going to be differentg who can forget the confusion that reigned in Mother Bancroft on the day that the rains came down? At Little Creek, we were introduced to the com- plexities of the amphibious operation and it soon grew into quite a hectic acquaintance. Although most of us were dismayed when we found out about the early reveilles and saw those quonset huts, we were willing to accept anything when we first sampled the famous Tramid chow and started to enjoy that every- day liberty. The Tramid Ball provided a welcome break from the routine, although it must be said that we will never be able to get used to marching to a dance. Who can forget the sweat, the lectures, the dem- onstrations, the wet net drills, the dry net drills, spend- ing a day out in the boats, marching back from the beach, "All -right, you people!

One of the more enjoyable phases of Sec- ond Class summer was the several field trips that were scheduled to supplement the broader training imparted on the cruises and Tramid. We went to Philly for a whirlwind tour of sev- eral installations, being briefed in such things' as damage control and ejection seats. Not to be :forgotten were the dances given for each battalion at the Officers' Club. We went to the Naval Air Station at Chincoteague, where we each got a jet ride and learned a lot about guided missiles and the newer units of the air Navy. Who will forget the friendly get-to- gethers at that O-Club? Finally, there was the guided tour of Martin Aircraft Company out- side of Baltimore.

Two weeks of the summer were to be spent right in Annapolis, where we would get the practical end of the training by actually doing some flying ourselves.

We all enjoyed the hours that we were able to spend up in the air, and derived much knowledge from them that would have been unattainable otherwise. The Bull De- partment gave us a short course in conference pro- ceduresg we couldnat ever seem to get away from them.

Musical Clubs Show An annual highlight of the winter season is the musical production put on by the Combined Musical Clubs in Mahan Hall. The most remarkable feature of this show that is always enjoyed so much is the fact that everything is done by the midshipmen themselves, from the writing of music and lyrics on down to the less glamorous work of moving around the various Lover Boy sings of "Many Wives". props. Directed by Jack Chrisman and produced by Rich Cockley, this yearis Clubs put on "One Too Many", a zany musical comedy staged about a certain jail in a certain precinct in New York City. ,N -on i - 1 :ME 'K b. -L," , U. Erstwhile pickpocket at work. As usual, the show was a booming success, and played to packed weekend audiences. The music was great, the laughs were many, and the individual per- formances were'good. Neal Parker's rendition of Lover Boy, with his many loves, and Teddy Wu's inimitable Ely Chan were especially memorable. Di- rector Chrisman did a nifty job of narrating the action, and who could forget the strains of the Hungry Five? The various Gangs that worked behind the scenes showed their many skills to great advantage on the many sets that graced the stage in Mahan Hall. The members of the various organizations that put so much effort into '4One Too lVlany,' can well be satisfied with another good musical to add to the lore of the Com- bined Musical Clubs. 62130315 ff- A "One Too Manyi' 's chorus. i i- V-.,.. .1 l ..,..

Glee Club An organization that really did us proud, the Glee Club was a traveling ambassador for the Naval Academy and good song. Their harmony was heard all over the nation, via both personal appearances and television. Any type of melody was their specialty, and Professor Gilley saw to it that they never lost the brilliance that continually marked their performances. It will be a part of the Academy that weill never for- get. ' ' png... Masqueraders In observing the fiftieth anniversary of the found- ing of the Masqueraders as an organized activity at the Naval Academy, this year's group picked an outstand- ing play to present to the Brigade and their guests. The immortal 6'Stalag 17" was the choice, and a perform- ance in Mahan Hall was never better. John Nickerson directed the effort almost to perfection, as any of the packed-house audiences will attest. The performances of this year's cast will be long remembered, who could ever forget 'such characters as Stosh and Harry Shapiro? Jim Martin and Tony Marks played these memorable roles with such skill as to delight any Navy theater-goer. .nf One of our Thespians. ....L..

Building props, changing the sets, pulling curtains, and a myriad of other small but vital functions all fell to the hard working members of this group. George Allender guided the workings of this year's Gang, and to him and his followers, the Masqueraders, the Musical Clubs, and the Brigade all owe a big vote of thanks. OVCI' Juice Gang Although most of them hated skinny, the Juice Gang performed feats that made us think that they must have been a crew of Einsteins. Who could forget some of their electrical displays that adorned Mahan and Bancroft Halls? Whether it was for Army-Navy weekends or for a coming concert, their ingenuity was amazing. John Berry and his followers never failed to come up with the new idea that made us wonder what was coming next. Here was a crew who really rated having their names up in lights. 9-C Stage Gang.

We saw a great deal of the Concert Band during the year, mainly down in the Mess Hall as they sere- naded the Brigade. They contributed a large part to the football season as well, with their frequent appear- ances in a role to help vent the spirit valve. We came to identify them with such pleasant thoughts as good music and pep rallies. Stu Merriken directed the Band this year and from the sound of things, musicians were better than ever.

Another way in which we'll remember Mahan Hall in the future is thinking of the many hours that we spent trying to find a comfortable position at the evening lectures. "What? Another lecture tonight?" Although we may have heard this remark many times, there was no doubt that the lecture program arranged for the first class was definitely one of the highlights of the year. It gave us a good opportunity to hear some of the top leaders of the services speak and offer us their observations and advice on the careers that we would soon take up. We heard from them all-ranging from the Chief of Naval Operations to the Head of the Department of Physical Training. Getting to know the confines of Mahanls auditorium was no chore when there were such good talks in store for us. Although it might have seemed uncanny that we always had a lecture on the eve of a "4-N" day, the time was well spent, for where else could we have gotten such good l5dope99l?

Mahan Hall was also the home of the Library, with which we were to become only too familiar dur- ing the four years that we spent here. We were intro- duced to it during Plebe summer and did not see the last of it until late in First Class year. Whether it was for pu1'e enjoyment or for the frequent papers we had to write for the Bull Department, we found it a foun- tain of wisdom. One of the most complete of its kind to be found in the world, it often amazed us with what it contained. Plebe year found us making frequent trips to the Library to find the answers to the myriad of questions asked at the tables. After that, it was usually a trip to find a good novel or to do a littl'e research. We never really knew what hours spent in the library could mean, however, until First Class year when the awe- some term paper began to plague us. Who can forget the hours spent in the racks and the feeling of frustra- tion when it was discovered that all our books were gone? All those books, and still not enough .... Writing the rough draft.

Although we often thought that the various courses that were thrown our way over in Maury Hall were taught in Greek, the four years that we spent with the Department of English, History, and Government helped immeasuralily in hroadening our education toward the standards expected of the modern military man. We struggled with the often "less than olmviousw fine points of composition and literature during Plehe year, we had thought that we knew how to write a theme hefore, lint we found that the professors didn't always agree.

So it seemed, at least, as the instructors who taught us the elusive principles of electrical engineering gave us the fre- quent quizzes and a large portion of the weekly bushes and trees. We knew that the courses they brought to us were essential in our quest for a commission, but often we couldn't help but wonder what connection there was between the 'LFBI rulei' and the Navy. From the wonders of chemistry during Plebe Year, we proceeded quickly to the vectors and laws of physics. Then we found ourselves in the midst of electricity, which ultimately gave way to the com- plexities of the vacuum tube and modern electronics. The quizzes and exams will always be rather ruefully remembered, and we won't soon forget how the slide- rules of even our slowest brethren could smoke on occasion. Captain Eugene B.

This gave way to Huid mechan- ics and thermodynamics in turn, and First Class Year found us studying ship stability and construction along with modern internal combustion engines. The long classes, quizzes, and lab periods tended to give us fits and when the last river was crossed, even the 'gstarsi' drew a deep breath of relief. lt was an im- portant part of our professional education and one that was continually stressed.

Coach Callow didn't have only these men to draw on, howeverg people such as Moston Mulholland and Don Meyer, this year's captain, were ready to move in at any time. The frequent changes in the lineup of the first boat indicated the team's overall strength and spell trouble for any of Navy's foes on the water this year. I 51 l l l Taking the shell down to the water. The preponderance of underclassmen in the iirst and second boats spell better times ahead for the rowing fans of the Naval Academy, so long accus- tomed to the finest crews afloat. Men rowing for the junior varsity crews could expect to move up to the parent boats at any time in return for constant hard work and effort. Princeton, a perennial powerhouse, is the first opponent, on April 19th, after that, it will be constant work for the ultimate goal of bringing home another National Championship to the Naval Academy. Also occupying the boat house was our fine light- weight crew, captained this year by Terry Priebe and coached by Lt. Don Kilmer. Not usually accorded the recognition they deserved, these men worked their way through a tough schedule with great credit to the Academy. Poetry in motion. This could be dangerous.

's Soccer At seas0n's beginning, one might have heard sounds of lamenting from the camp of Coach Glen Warner, who had seen the loss of many top-notch stal- warts when '57 graduated. He quickly found that he had really nothing to worry about as the nucleus of a solid bunch of returning veterans combined with a lot of fresh new talent to give the Blue and Gold another good team and outstanding season. Returning from last year's combo were Captain and fullback Harvey Cameron, who led the team well. Also back with him was centerhalf John Meehan, a segundo who came to be known as Navy's best before the season was over. Zeke Zariquiey and Mike Wood- bury also came back to resume their feats as outside and inside rights which drove opposing defenses crazy. The goal was again defended by firsfie Sam Parker, who did a superb job all season. Other names which became familiar to Navy soccer followers were Or- tega, Rippelmeyer, Haumont, Freakes, McCall, and Abington, all of whom contributed to a lot to the team's fine season.

Pat Flood headed the club's ef- forts this year, with the outstanding achievement being the institution of drag swimming in lVlacDonough Hall.

Captain Ben Montoya returned for his third year of leading the Navy mound staff, this righthander, blessed with both speed and brains, had the stuff to beat anyone with his hurling, besides being one of the best hitters on the squad. Big Fred Anderson backed Ben up with a blazing fast ball and tremendous en- durance, while Pete Hofstedt and ,lack Hawthorne had the stuff to both start and relieve. Don Norkin, the only southpaw, and Youngsters Jerry Hill and Frank De- lano rounded out the staff. Mike Willen held down first base with both a booming stick and a smooth glove, while steady Joe Mcfllinchey provided the Tars with good strength at the keystone sack. Fleet Bob Steidle was one of the best fielding shortstops in the league, besides being the perfect leadoff man. Youngsters Gary Bagnard and Doug Manekheim were fighting it out for third base, both showing a lot of promise, they must have brought a gleam to Coach Bishop's eye.

"Your last stop in your tour of the Naval Acad- emy is picturesque Worden Field, home of the Bri- gade's weekly parades and numerous athletic contests. AS a symbol of one of our more famous activities, this field is probably more in the public eye than any other location in the Yard. We feel that we have seen enough visitors here during our four years to populate the entire city of New York. "The Wednesday afternoon parade was the cul- mination ofa great amount of effort from everybody in the Brigade. Here on Worden, we attempted to live up to the highest standards of military precision both for the spectators and the grades awarded for the company color competition. The parade was both liked and dislikedg we came to hate the seemingly endless prac- tices which accompanied every week ofthe competition but we enjoyed the chance to see visiting dignitaries, Watch the civilians, and hear some of the best in mar- tial music. Here we honored such figures as the Queen Mother, Prince Albert of Belgium, and the Secretary ofthe Navy. Here we paid tribute to our leaders, and in 21 small way, we hope, to the Naval Academy and the Naval Service." 5 . 1 '-- 4.0. 9 . : f 5 h.1.f'f' l . Ri .2 E?"

Crowds in Annapolis were treated to a clean sweep of the local events, as it soon hecame evident that this was to he a great day. The track team ran away to a 84-449 triumph, as our spikes really tlnmdered around the ancient Thompson oval. The hasehallers gladdened Lawrence Field with a thrilling 5-4 win, while the golfers came through with a 4-3 decision. Up at West Point, the tennis team made it nine in a row over Army with a lopsided 8-1 victory, with only the lacrosse team losing, in a thril- ler, 17-12, to a team which later claimed the national championship.

The invocation and the opening remarks were soon over and then came our Commander-in-Chief, President Eisenhower. The class felt deeply honored to have such a distinguished speaker, and we will long remember his message to us, one of the finest speeches we will ever hear.

' 20 3 c 4fc In Appreciation . . . There are many, many intangibles that go into the production of a Lucky Bug, when the 1958 edition was born in the fall of 1955, the newly-elected editor and his fellow Hplank-ownersi' didn't know how many. Inexperienced in the ways of college yearbook production, we naturally had to feel our way along at first, and we came to rely to a great extent upon the civilian and serv- ice representatives who came to our aid. To these people, the staff of the 1958 Lucky Bag couldn't begin to give enough thanks. Mr. Charles C. Clegg, of Comet Press, Inc., was the printing liaison man between our littered office and the production end up in New York City. We had literally thousands of ques- tions that came up in the course of the three years that it took to put this book together. Mr. Clegg always seemed to have the answers to all of them, and many that we hadn't even thought of. Al- though we gave him many reasons for heart failure when deadlines came up, he never lost his good cheer and confidence that came to inspire the whole staff. To Mr. Clegg and his embattled production manager, we would give the world if it were ours. Our engravers, Lynchburg Engraving Company, and their representative, Mr. Winston Sheppard, did a Hne job with the front section and the biographies. Never failing to come through with a tip when it counted, they gave us the best in service always. Special thanks to both Mr. Sheppard and lVlr. Arthur Meidling, who was always so cordial and helpful. The photography in the biography section, striper, underclass, and company pages is enthusiastically credited to Zamsky Studios of Philadelphia and their fine staff. John Chevalier worked long hours with lVlr. Zamsky and his photographers in scheduling and taking the myriad of pictures necessary for these pages. Enough couldn't be said in their praise. The cover, which we feel is among the best ever, is the work of the people at S. K. Smith Company of New York and Chicago. Mr. E. W. Kase represented them to us, and We would like to thank him for all the expert help and good advice. Thanks to all the advertisers who came to our rescue this year. No college publication is possible without advertising, as we soon found out. The contacts that we made in securing this advertising were always most cordial. On the home front, special thanks go to Commander Ray Wiggins, our Officer Represent- ative, Who took such good care of us. The advice, the help, even the copy deletions, that came from this gentleman were always in the best taste and interests of the Lucky Bag. He was always around when help was needed. Special appreciation goes to all the midshipmen, instructors, and officers who helped us with many of the facets of the production. Posing for pictures, helping us caption them, even writ- ing some of the copy-it was all help that we couldnit have done without. Photography credits should go to Mr. M. E. Warren of Annapolis, who provided many of the individual pictures in the sports section. His gracious cooperation and excellent photography were assets that we came to rely upon heavily. Thanks should also go to our own Public Informa- tion Oflice, which provided us with many U.S. Navy photographs for the Chain of Command sec- tion and the four years story. lVlr. Maurice Constant provided us with the portrait of Admiral Burke, while Journal Fotos, of Jacksonville, Florida, took the pictures of the dance in their fair city during Second Class Summer. The Associated Press provided us with the picture of Presi- dent Eisenhower appearing on page 4-5, we would also like to thank Look Magazine and the Washington Post for the aid that they gave us. To all these and the many others, too numerous to mention, who helped make this book possible, the editor offers his deepest appreciation. The staff of the Lucky Bag and the entire class of 1958 owes each and every one a big debt of gratitude. 611 ubject Index . . . Academic Group . . . Across the River . . . Administration .....

Olliciul United Status Nnvy Photographs Wherever you go on your first tour of duty you're bound to find one or more CREI men Throughout the Navy thousands of Electronics men - with extra ambition - are supplementing Navy rating courses with CREI technical training. Here are some of the facts: In the past years, Capitol Radio Engineering Insti- tute has helped thousands of Navy men, including all electronic ratings and many commissioned ranks, to obtain a high level of supplementary practical electronics know-how. Even today, one-third of all CREI enrollees are Navy personnel. These men re- ceive fby mail from CREIJ Navy-recognized elec- tronics training-above and beyond the scope of rating courses. They pay their own tuition. They study during off-duty hours. These men make better electronics men-and better Navy men who by their interest and advancement are better sold on longer Navy careers. E. H. Rietzke, founder and president of CREI, was himself a Navy Chief Radioman, and was the first Chief Instructor at the Bellevue Naval Radio Ma- teriel School. Many Naval ofhcers recommend CREI training to men in their commands. Do you want to know more about CREI training and how it can serve the Navy? We will be happy to send you a volume of five sample lessons, selected from various sections of the course, plus full details of the CREI program. This volume will give you a picture of the scope of CREI training, and assist you in making your own evaluation of our courses and methods. No cost or obligation.

"":15iE .:': 2 ' 654 ELL AIRCRAFT'S new Automatic Landing System fALSJ reaches out day or night into all kinds of weather., takes over complete control from the pilot and brings tl1e airplane in for a safe,"hands-off" landing. This system has been successfully demonstrated under almost zero-zero conditions for both land and sea use . . . and in more than 1500 landings with a variety of military and com- mercial aircraft. It could materially reduce the time and hazards involved in pilot training. For naval application, ALS makes necessary adjustments for the pitch and roll of aircraft carriers. If an airplane is not i11 the correct attitude at the instant it is to 'touch the deck, it is automatically waved off and guided around for another approach. This highly mobile system is only one of tl1e many current achieve- ments of tl1e Avionics Division of Bell Aircraft which continues to add to its list of significant contributions to the advancement of both civil and military aviation. 655 J Q07-ww ffm' C BUFFALO, N.
