Man was barbaric in the beginning, and cooperation was a new and un- familiar concept. el the hopes were there and the desires strong, both demanding their lullillment. But what a thought it is to consider the profound change wrought within man 1 the process of Ins civilization. Through the formation ol communities governed h laws, man evolved from a primitive barbarian to his present state. ithin these communities, through cooperation with his lei low- and a partial submission of his own in- terest to theirs, man was more easily able to provide for his own basic needs. An increasing portion of his time was released from the for- merly ceaseless toil ol just providing for his existence and made avail- able lor other tasks. All the line works and achievements of mankind can rightfully he considered a result of these improved conditions. Further, there is no reason to suspect that man ' s advances in science and the understanding of himself shall not continue. The limits to the achievements of humanity are not vet visible. All these improvements are the profits of the realization by in- dividual men that their interests were very much ' the same as the in- terests of their fellows, and that they could be fulfilled more easily through cooperation. This situation remains true for all men for all time. Nevertheless, in spite of those accomplishments achieved through mutual cooperation, a tremendous task remains before us. The crea- tion of strife and disharmony are methods still used by dictatorial leaders of enslaved nations in furthering their selfish ends. k These are outlaw methods, scorned hy the majority of stable and free-thinking men. The promises of peace and coopera- tion must now enlighten the thinking of all humanity. All strife, all disharmony, must be exterminated before the ultimate realization of a world encompassed with enlightened thinking is reached. This is our task today, a task never fully attempted before. a task requiring dedicated and untiring effort. The necessity for all nations to live together in harmony has sig- nificantly increased since yesteryear. It now has become a matter of survival. Though force, in past centuries, could produce tangible re- sults for the victor, each new development in the instruments of war has lessened the chance of successful recourse to it. Science lias pre- sented us with the prospect of a war that will know no victor. Moreover, the technological advances of recent years have so shrunk the distances separating nations, that the al lairs ol one nation are most definitely the concern of others. Men have grouped together and ordered their lives with laws to claim the benefits of unified, regulated actions. Certainly nations could do likewise, to the benefit of the world. Our own century has seen two major efforts to bring the world- wide community of nations into responsive, mutual accord. We can only surmise at what would have been the course of events which led to World War II had the League of Nations been endowed with suf- ficient effectiveness to maintain peace and order. Its successor, the present United Nations, although profiting from the mistakes of the past and growing stronger through each crisis, still has not brought about the world unity to which it aspires. But the pattern is becoming more clear; the habit of settling international differences at the conference table is becoming more engrained. Both of these organizations, the League of Nations in leading the way. and the United Nations in its present ef- forts, represent the great beginning of a world of cooperation, of mutual endeavor to promote harmony, to establish orderly and civi- lized arbitration and to provide for the help of one for another. They mark progress. The lawful order which such organizations represent is an edu- cational force which will acclimate the world to such thinking, and hasten the realization of harmony in the interest of all mankind. Perhaps the greatest successes of the League of Nations and the United Nations have been within their social and economic activities. In the world of international politics, they have been less successful. The reason for this is clear. W bile there is general world-wide accord in the desire to eliminate ignorance, pestilence and famine, the nations of the world still diverge greatly in their respective political aims. To obtain cooperation among nations despite these individual political differences is the task now facing our civilization. By accomplishing this, man will have won his greatest battle for universal peace and co- operation. But because of the very greatness of the task, victory is so much more difficult to gain. It will take a complete mutual un- derstanding among nations, an understanding that our earth has never seen. It will take great leaders with the highest character, along with the efforts of every member of every nation. It will necessitate sacrifices and compromises by all parties, but the reward is so pre- cious, so welcome, that the battle is well worth the effort. To the victory of world peace and cooperation over violence and chaos, to that ideal is this book dedicated. We all look forward to the day when the just hopes of all mankind are realized; those hopes of mutual understanding, benefit, and aid. When these are fulfilled, and only then, it can be said that man has truly pr ogressed.

The immeasurably huge globe has be- come an easily travelled, almost completely accessible sphere in which the many nations must carry out their business only a few hours away from each other. The policies of each of these nations has its effect upon those of her fellow countries. The common goals toward which these nations should be striving are world co-operation, mutual un- derstanding in the interest of all nations, and the ideal of lasting peace. But lasting peace is not insured today. That is for tomorrow. We must continuously stand ready to preserve our rights in order that those individuals who are at present denied these same rights may gain their inherent freedoms. We must have leaders who believe in these freedoms, and who can see the future peace. These leaders have no easy task, for many elements in the world today seem to trample the word " peace, " " and world-wide co-operation seems but a misty dream. A man must have strong character and un- bending principles to face these facts and yet keep the goal in sight in order that the universal hope be ultimately realized. The leaders of our world must have this character and those principles so that we may be guided on the right course. Theirs is a back-breaking job. a discouraging one. one of little tangible reward, yet a job so necessary. In this section, we present some of the many leaders who have shouldered this imposing task. Their road has been a difficult one. but a road they have travelled with strength and character. May they continue to lead us on this path, so that someday our dreams and the dreams of all peoples for enduring peace and a co-operative globe may become a reality. Duight D.

The Class Section Edited by M:HAEL JAMES LEES BBS i ■ From all corners of the nation and all walks of life we came. We were seagoers and farmers, athletes and scholars. We were rich and we were poor. We were military men and civilians. We are perhaps one of the best cross-sections of American youth that can be found anywhere, yet our purpose is one. To serve our country in peace and war to the utmost of our ability. We are all individuals with our different personalities, desires, and ideals, but with only one main task. We laugh at different ideas yet our ultimate goals are much the same. We are many, yet we are one. From the beginning of Plebe Year when we grouped together to face the onslaught, we have worked together, played together, eaten together, marched together. Bancroft has crowded us into almost a family unit where each other ' s victories and defeats are seen and heard. Joys and sorrows are shared freely, and friendships are made that, bonded by four years of close cooperation, can never be forgotten. The memories of our life here will never leave us, and as we spread throughout the world, many times these memories will be relived. In every corner of every ocean, into every part of every sea, our brotherhood will travel and, there, meet each other and reminisce of old times and old friends. 36 lm rf i . DESTROYER DUTY JAMES MICHAEL ALFORD West Monroe, Louisiana Mike came to USNA from the deep South by way of the Navy and NAPS. Although a confirmed member of the " Blue Tram- poline Club, " Mike spent quite a bit of his time as a member of the First Company ' s sports squads. After taking things easy plebe year, he decided that this was the way to enjoy life. Mike ' s easy way and ready smile made him many lasting friends at Navy, and his ability to evaluate a situation, and knack of doing the right thing instinctively, will make him an asset to any service. ROBERT EMERSON ALLISON Richlands, Virginia Bob came to the Academy from Richlands, Virginia. He was born in the Blue Ridge Mountains on January 9, 1939, which makes him one of the youngest members of the class. You can ' t miss Bob with his bright red wavy hair and ready smile. He has a sharp and ready wit, which he brings into play on even the worst of days. Bob was a plebe and varsity fencer during his four years at the Academy, and lettered in this sport. Besides being an excellent saberman, he is a fine alto sax player and is a member of the concert band, which has played for us many times during the years. Bob is a naval air proponent and will report to Pensacola for flight training after graduation. ROBERT JOSEPH AMEND Dearborn, Michigan Bob, after attending various educational institutions, MIT in- cluded, decided that the Navy offered what he had been looking for, a career in Naval Air. Bob ' s previous training and technical ability have definitely enabled him to maintain an above-average standing in his class. He is a very unemotional individual; that is, with the exception of incidents such as when his Ford Motor Company stock dropped twenty dollars per share. Aside from these few and far between occurrences, his calmness on the playing field and in all phases of his training have proved him a worthy candidate for his proposed career in Naval Aviation. 38 FIRST 1 RICHARD CARL ANTOLINI Ambridge, Pennsylvania Dick Antolini came to Navy with visions of winning a position on the starting eleven and of having a good time. The former vision faded for the Ambridge, Pennsylvania, halfback, although Dick was third string half as a plebe. Instead, the JV soccer, company soccer, company Softball, and battalion handball teams gained a valuable member. The latter vision, however, has been with Dick throughout his four years at USNAY, even during that non-dragging plebe year. Hav- ing good grades, our boy has spent most of his weekend time after that with his OAO. Although he has not decided for certain, the tin can navy looks pretty good to Dick, but Navy Air may get him yet. Whoever does get him though, will not only get a sharp officer, but also quite a few laughs. ALBERT ANTHONY ARCUNI Greenwich, Connecticut Any challenges, be they in the classroom, on the athletic fields, or in human nature and relations, were right up Albie ' s alley. An excel- lent academic record and three years of solid performances for Navy Tech ' s track team, as well as the lease of his fine voice to the An- tiphonal Choir, occupied Al ' s time rather fully. Still he could be found, in his spare moments, with a favorite pipe in hand listening to soft music and looking forward to a future which includes an attractive Connecticut school teacher. Quick wit and a friendly spirit are Albie ' s dominant traits. Full of willingness, perseverance, and the desire to make every job done a good one, he sets an enviable example for all to follow. STANLEY JEFFERSON BAILEY East Aurora, New York Having left many broken hearts behind in East Aurora, Jeff soon became known as a guy who would always come through a tough skinny exam or a trying football weekend, battle scarred, but ready to get ' em again. In aiding the Third Company ' s successful drives for the colors, Jeff burned up the football field as the booming fullback. Although the 4.0 ' s did not come as easily as the touchdowns, he was able to maintain a respectable academic average throughout his four years. On the lighter side, not many of us will forget that June Week night when Jeff returned minus both his shoes. Jeff ' s per- severance, coupled with his inherent congeniality, gives him a sound basis for a successful career as an officer. BATTALION 39 iiMJiiMlifiMMiiiim WILLIAM COOK BALLARD St. Petersburg, Florida Bill came to the Naval Academy after a year of indoctrination in the good life at Duke University. The shock of the change was lessened upon his discovering the Academy ' s fleet of fine yachts. Sailing, along with some wrestling during the cold months, has been his favorite sport. Bill has remained a true son of Florida, and has never been able to understand why people live further north than his be- loved state. He plans on a hitch with the destroyer fleet and then, with luck, submarines. LARRY EDWARD BARRINGER Bessemer City, North Carolina " Let ' s go see Bare, " was the popular cry when a tough steam assignment had us snowed. Larry ' s solutions may have differed from those of the book, but they seemed to produce the right answer. A year at North Carolina State prepared our " Charlie Brown " for a Superintendent ' s List berth at the Boat School. Bare ' s Bessemer City High School career on the gridiron was continued on our battalion team, and his talents graced the field ba II battlefield as well. Plans for the future include attack squadrons of Navy Air, and maybe a wife, if he ever finds the right girl. LEELAND MILLARD BATHRICK Barrington, Illinois Lee ' s main desire in life is to get ahead. Planning to enter submarines and work for his master ' s degree in electrical engineering, Lee belonged to the automotive and electrical engineering clubs at the Academy. His interests include sports, especially golf, mechanics, photography, and building hi-fi equipment. Before coming to the Academy at the tender age of seventeen, Lee received All-State honorable mention for two years in football. However, his interest in athletics changed to boxing and company soccer while at the Acad- emy. Known for his ability to produce drags for anyone interested, only once has he come close to receiving a brick himself. 40 FIRST I DUANE CLARENCE BECK Baldwin, Wisconsin " Beck ' hails from the great western state of Wisconsin. He came here fresh out of high school, but he soon learned the facts of midshipman life. He helped the Third Company to win the Brigade colors by participating in company volleyball and basketball. During his leaves, Beck returned to Baldwin, Wisconsin, to catch up on hunting and fishing, and to make all the girls back home happy again. " Beck " is thinking of a career in the Marine Corps. I FRED AUSTIN BEE Seb ring, When Fred wasn ' t studying or writing to a girl, he was talking about oranges. Fred ' s interest in this fruit had been instilled in him since his birth in Sebring, Florida, and he jointly owns a small orange grove with his brother. Trying to run an orange grove while going through the Naval Academy is hard enough, but Fred uses his spare time as an active soccer player, playing plebe, company, and bat- talion soccer. During the winter he played company football. Putting his imagination to work, he designed the class crest, which made him a member of our Ring and Crest Committee. Four years went fast for this busy lad and we expect great things from him. ..-;-:::■ JEROME EDWARD BENSON Casper, Wyoming Jerry was born in May, 1936, in Casper, Wyoming — a long way from the deep water which has claimed him. A more capable representative of the Casper Chamber of Commerce, or a more capable midshipman, has never been born. Don ' t tangle with this man, as he has been a brigade and battalion boxer, a salty sailor aboard the schooner Freedom, and a fine student. His marvelous artwork, with both brush and camera, has made a place for him in the Brigade. Navy Line holds a claim to Jerry ' s future. BATTALION 4! Hi CHARLES ROBERT BLAIR Trenton, Michigan " Charlie Brown " came to the officer factory from a mine- sweeper on the West Coast with his head glistening in the sun. As he says though, " I may be bald, but it ' s neat. " Chuck has the unique distinction of being the only midshipman to ever send his pillow to the laundry. We won ' t say that Chuck wasn ' t an academic whiz, but he always checked the unsat list before looking at his posted marks. He was best known for his winning smile and good nature, and wherever he goes, his future looks bright. WARREN JENNINGS BLANKE, JR. Cleveland, Ohio Jay, as he is called by all, came to the Naval Academy after finishing high school at Culver Military Academy. He has fitted easily into the life here with a minimum of trouble in academics. During the winter, Jay was hard at work for the swimming team, winning three varsity letters and the honor of being elected team captain first class year. The activities of the French Club, WRNV, and the Log and Splinter rounded out his extracurricular life. Jay had two loves here at the convent, and he was constantly dividing his time between them. Consequently, on weekends, if he weren ' t dragging, he was sure to be in the pad. Jay had a rich sense of humor and pro- vided the gang here with many good times. NORMAN CARL BLOOM Chicago, Illinois Norm came to the Academy after a year of pushing the academics in the forestry school at Michigan Tech. Although he soon found out that sunny Maryland did get snow, he sorely missed the winter sports of skiing and hockey that he ' d left behind. However, he soon found a place on the company soccer, football, and Softball teams, where his ready smile and steady play were always welcome. Norm claims Chicago as his home town and no matter where he may go, he ' ll always be willing to tell you it is a fine liberty port. 42 FIRST DALLAS BENJAMIN BOGGS Norfolk, Virginia Dai ' s four years at the Academy represent the perfect example of friendship and outstanding achievement. As an athlete, Dal was a top competitor on the plebe swimming team and then contributed his talents to the varsity for three years. As a socialite he was equally successful, serving on the Brigade Hop Committee for three years, with terms as class chairman. But it was as a friend that Dal succeeded best with his sincerity and wit, which were a part of his engaging personality, and it is this quality that will bring Dal to great heights as a naval officer. What more could a boy who was born and raised in Norfolk, Virginia, want? GORDON ALAN BONNEL West Caldwell, New Jersey Another of the straight-out-of-high-school clan, Gordy faired quite well against all the others in academic competition. His in- quisitive nature always saw him with a question for which he always received an answer — the answer he wanted. Plebe year didn ' t affect him too much, although some were inclined to believe that Midship- man Bonnel, 4 c, would get his first command in the ED squad by the seniority rule. In athletics Gordy was a Jack-of-all-trades, and, although he never saw any varsity competition, he backed company sports to the hilt. In his spare time, which increased with the years, he could be seen writing his OAO or reading her letters, and no one ever beat Gordy to the mate ' s desk when the mailman arrived. JOSEPH JOHN BOSCO Bronx, New York Joe will best be remembered for his ready friendship, easy smile, and generosity. The Naval Academy inherited him from Mar- quette University, and he made his mark as a scholar, but his sense of humor was ever present. His willingness to help anyone with academics, or anything with which they might be having trouble, was displayed continually. It was fun just being with Joe as it was a rare occasion when he was not in the mood for a joke. He will be a great asset to the Fleet, as he has been to the Academy, and is a valuable addition to anyone ' s list of friends. BATTALION 43 ROBERT HATHAWAY BOURKE Arlington, Virginia Not only did Bob follow family tradition by coming to the Academy, but also he managed to be in the same company that his father was in as a midshipman twenty-four years ago. While at the Academy, Bobby participated in both plebe and varsity cross-country, along with the intramural 150-pound football squad. The fight with academics was always an easy one for Bobby, and because of this, he was able to devote much of his time to playing in the concert band. With a preference toward submarines, Bobby is starting his service career. JAMES WAKEFIELD BOWER Chester, Pennsylvania Jim, " Bow Wow, " as his classmates sometimes call him, came to the Naval Academy after one year at Wyoming Seminary. Jim, who played on two basketball teams at Chester High that went to the state finals, put his ability right to work for the Naval Academy. Following a year of plebe ball, he moved right up to the varsity five and was one of the top scorers for three years. Besides basketball, Jim also played a mean game of tennis. His winning smile and per- sonality, plus his continual clowning, brought him many friends both on and off the basketball court. Jim plans to enter the Marine Corps upon graduation. FRANK BENJAMIN BRAUN Palo Alto, California Frank, a Navy junior, lived in many different places before his graduation from high school. In fact, his home town was always some- what of a question mark. He attended Severn Prep for a year to better prepare himself for the Academy. Academics were then taken in his stride, leaving him plenty of time for dinghy sailing, company soccer, and cross-country. Although Frank ' s weekends were usually spent dragging, he occasionally found time to play a round of golf. The French Club was of primary importance in his extra- curricular activities, and he was an energetic worker on company projects. Frank made a lot of friends while at the Academy and will be remembered for his quick wit and cheerful manner. I I 14 FIRST JAMES PAUL BULLOCK Ridley Park, Pennsylvania Jim, who hails from Pennsylvania, came to us by way of Wyoming Seminary where he was an outstanding athlete, winning varsity letters in football and track. During his first year at the Academy, Jim played on the plebe football team. In the following years he showed evidence of his athletic ability by leading the com- pany fieldball and battalion football teams to winning seasons. Jim was equally successful with the academic departments and extra- curricular activities. When not dragging some attractive young lady, he devoted his weekends to the Reception Committee. Jim was also a firm supporter of the Foreign Language Club, a writer for the Trident, and a member of the Stagline Association. RAYMOND THOMAS BURKLEY Bl airsville, Pennsylvania This former student civil engineer, from the twenty-second district of Pennsylvania, received his appointment to the Academy in the Class of I960, just prior to entering his junior year in college. Since he had to wait until the following June to enter the Academy, he joined the Navy and spent ten months at the Naval Academy Preparatory School, where he filled the capacity of student instructor. Although he claims that liberty and weekends are not as good as they were at Pennsylvania State University, he has not missed a liberty call in four years. Now he is looking forward to a long and successful career flying jets. BARRY JAMES BYRNE Annapolis, Maryland Barry entered the Academy after graduation from Severn School, which is located on the upper banks of the Severn. Being a true Crabtowner, he could be located either on liberty or on the playing field with his butterfly net, playing the old Indian game. A member of Dinty Moore ' s teams for three years, B. J. achieved his athletic fame with his midfield stick. An authority on the lesser traveled streets in Annapolis, he was continually hounded for in- formation relative to empty garages. A firm believer of 2.50 max, B. J. always seemed to win over the academics with a minimum of book time and a maximum of rack time. With his competitive spirit and easy going nature, Barry will be welcomed into any wardroom in the fleet. BATTALION 45 ■» PATRICK JOHN CARLSON Tampa, Florida Pat, or " Spider, " as he affectionately called himself, spent four years as a blue-jacket. During this time he distinguished himself in Japan as a ferocious 145-pound end, and then came to USNAY for the good of the operating fleet. When some girls laughed our hero off the tennis courts because of his knobby knees, he turned to boxing (in case it happened again), and the O-Club (in case it didn ' t). His flop with the fairer sex was peanuts compared to his pugilistic fiasco. His pet peeves were: the system, academics, march- ing, the Executive Department, reveille, inspections, 1956-1960, ex- piration of leave, and the seven mile radius. However, modern medical science ' s advances in the field of tranquilizers enabled Pat to take all of this lightly, and enjoy his stay at the Academy. % WILLIAM ELDRIDGE CARTWRIGHT, JR. Portsmouth, Virginia " Carty, " as he is commonly known, did his Naval Academy preparation at Bullis Prep, where he gained invaluable military ex- perience in the famous " X " Platoon of the Navai Reserve Unit in Silver Spring, Maryland. The academics finally caught up with Bill after one year of plebe and a year of JV football, so he had to give up football to concentrate on his studies. Aviation summer dampened his desire to fly, and upon graduation Bill intends to join the fleet as a line officer. DAVID ALAN CHAIN Narbeth, Pennsylvania Jovial and easygoing are two of the many ways to describe Rusty, as his classmates know him. After graduation from Lower Merion High School in Ardmore, Pennsylvania, he entered Penn State for a year, prior to entering the Academy. While at the Academy, Rusty learned to play squash and in his second and first class years was a valuable member of the squash team. During second class summer, Rusty became greatly interested in flying and has decided to enter Navy Air following graduation. 6 FIRST JOHN SYDNEY CLAMAN Ogden, Utah John was born on March 4, 1938, in Roanoke, Virginia. His family later moved to Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, where he attended high school. While in high school, John played the bass professionally, and had a bright future as a jazz musician ahead of him. However, John decided to make the Navy his career. At the Naval Academy, John lent himself well to academics and extracurricular activities. He was an occasional member of the Superintendent ' s List, spent four years in the Chapel Choir, and put in four years as a member of the 150-pound crew team. He will make an excellent submariner, and will be a welcome addition to the fleet. DANIEL BURRELL CLARK Paris, Tennessee Dan, a true son of the South, was ever loyal to the Stars and Bars, and was always ready to champion the cause of his beloved South whenever the Great War was mentioned. He was born and raised in Paris (Tennessee, that is) where he was the mainstay on the football team, and he continued his gridiron career while at Navy. He has a knack for meeting and making friends with people, and he has never lost sight of his goal, a career in the Navy. MICHAEL CHRISTIAN COLLEY Portland, Oregon Out of the great northwest came a lad who seemed destined for a long naval career. His high school experience, as treasurer of the student body, qualified him as a financial advisor; however, he did not have much opportunity to handle money as a midshipman. This Oregonian spent most of his Naval Academy time contributing to the aims of the Color Company. He was varsity basketball manager, and also found time to play a great deal of company squash. His force- ful personality won him many friends, but, at times, confused his professors. Mike is likely to spend twenty years on the bridge of a destroyer. BATTALION 47 CHARLES ROY COLLICOTT Broken Bow, Nebraska " Bud " hails from a small town in Nebraska called Broken Bow. Before entering the Academy, he attended the University of Nebraska for a year. While there, Bud became a member of Kappa Sigma fraternity, and played football for the year. Since he has been at the Academy, Bud has acquired fame throughout his class as quite a comedian. Besides being a very active member in various Brigade activities, Bud has played three years of battalion football and his 6 ' 4 " and 225 pounds of muscle have helped the team tremendously. Bud has a love for all music, but there is a warm spot in his heart for hillbilly music. Whatever Bud does in the future, you can be sure he will be in the midst of things and enjoying it. He is sure to make a success of his career. CHARLES IRVING COOK Pasco, Washington Hailing from Pasco, Washington, Chuck entered the Academy fresh from a Naval Reserve cruise around the horn of South America. Coupling this with his status as a Navy junior, he had smooth sailing during plebe year. His natural talents as an athlete made him a feared opponent on the intramural tennis courts and football fields. Third class year was a little harder sailing for Chuck, but he came through with a jaunty air. Aviation summer, and flying the " Yellow Perils " Second Class year, proved him a confirmed air addict, and helped him choose Naval Aviation for a career. ANDREW GUSTAN COTTERMAN Wilmington, Ohio Andy found his home on the Severn after being born and reared in Wilmington, Ohio. He came to USNA immediately after graduating from Wilmington High School, where he majored in football and the discus. " Cotts " was probably best known as the all- purpose goalie, whether it was soccer, fieldball, or lacrosse. He bowed to very few in the field of academics, but held little love for the " Bull " department. Andy is determined to win his dolphins, where his friendly humor and quick wit will certainly help make him a success. I I 48 FIRST M Sigma ■ ' i the Pasade DENIS HEATH CRAWFORD California A product of San Marino High School in California, Denny came to the Naval Academy with the ambition of standing in the top twenty-five of his class academically. Having fulfilled this am- bition, Denny looks forward to a tour of duty in Naval Air, or a teaching job with the Navy. He can fill either billet to the utmost. When Denny was not helping a classmate with a tough skinny problem, he paralleled his academics with an active sport life. Plebe year he tossed the javelin for the track team, and continued to do so for two more years with the varsity. He also worked on the parallel bars and the rope climb for the plebe gym team. Weight-lifting is another of his favorites. He was an active member of the French Club, and the Math and Science Seminar. Showing such a wide variety of interests and a desire to keep improving, Nava 1 Air will be blessed with a fine young aviator and instructor. DAVID MURRAY CRISTE Cresson, Pennsylvania Dave came to the Academy straight from Cresson High, deep in the heart of Pennsylvania. Bringing with him the ability to play football, he carried on this sport on the plebe and battalion football teams. He also played a major role in the many victories of his company fieldball and basketball teams. Dave got a great deal of enjoyment out of singing in the Catholic Choir, and his friends always received much enjoyment from him because of his quick wit and friendship. He has occasionally reached the dizzying academic heights of the Superintendent ' s List, but academics have never really been a problem. Dave has all it takes to have a successful career in the future. HUGH ENOS CROW Wapato, Washington After spending two years at the University of Washington, and twenty months in the Navy as an enlisted man, Hugh went to the Naval Academy Preparatory School before entering the Academy. Academics never gave him much trouble, and Hugh got his stars and continuously stood high in the class. The high academic standing didn ' t stop him from doing other things. Hugh enjoyed wrestling, cross-country, company fieldball, and company and battalion soccer. He was also busy in extracurricular activities, and was a fourth class Lucky Bag representative, a second class company representative, a member of the Stagline Association, and the Science and Russian Seminars. With all he had to do, Hugh still found time to read a lot and enjoy life at USNA. As a service, Hugh prefers Navy Line. BATTALION 49 Manchester WALTER LEE DAUDEL Connecticut Walt is a world traveler. On his leaves and cruises he saw much of Europe, South America, and the U. S. He enjoyed nothing more than to meet people in a friendly Copenhagen cafe, or tease the pretty girls of Paris, unless it was to enjoy the great outdoors, for Walt is also a camper and horseman. He has a sense of vitality and awareness that commands respect. Walt wrestled on the plebe and varsity teams at the Academy. His previous schooling includes Valley Forge Military Academy, Bullis Prep, and VPI. Most of Walt ' s free time was spent either dancing or listening to the sentimental songs of Joni James. DENNIS MICHAEL DAVIDSON Bronson, Michigan Denny came to the Naval Academy via the University of Michigan, where he spent a year studying science engineering while waiting to fill the minimum age requirement of the Academy. A week before his NROTC cruise embarkation, he received his promotion orders by way of a senatorial appointment. His college background gave Denny a head start in academics, and enabled him to get stars and take advantage of the privileges of the Superintendent ' s List. After classes, he could usually be found on the tennis courts or working on the Lucky Bag. Interested in rocket technology and guided missiles, Denny hopes to specialize in these fields during his service career. . - GEORGE WASHINGTON DAVIS VI Arlington, Virginia " G. W. the sixth " can claim both California and Virginia as his home state, as he is the son of a naval aviator. Although his father didn ' t attend " Navy Tech, " George has always planned to follow in his father ' s footsteps and to someday be the proud owner of a Navy jet. While at the Academy, he had the amazing ability to carry very high grades without having to study very much. This left time for other activities, including choir, where he was noted for his deep bass voice. Always a perfectionist, George has vowed that he will not break the chain and that there will be a " George Washington VII. " GO FIRST FRANCIS XAVIER DELANO Nanberth, Pennsylvania Frank did his preparing for the Naval Academy at Bu His Prep, where he was the spark plug of the most fabulous basketball team in the school ' s history, and an honorary member of the notorious " X " Platoon of the Naval Reserve Unit in Silver Spring, Maryland. " The Silver Fox, " as Frank is called by his friends, gained quite a reputation as an outstanding basketball player at the Academy, and awed the spectators with his spectacular antics. Frank also did a fine job pitching for the baseball team. Although he was never an outstanding student, Frank always managed to make good grades when he needed them the most. Upon graduation, Frank intends to go into the Marine Corps and to continue his athletic career at Quantico. FRANCIS KEVIN DUFFY River Plaza, New Jersey Francis came to us from the rich farmlands of New Jersey. Before becoming a midshipman, " Duff " encountered many interesting experiences. He won varsity letters playing sports at Buliis Prep and the U. S. Merchant Marine Academy. A one year tour of sea duty, visiting many foreign countries, highlighted his pre-Naval Academy days. An advocate of contact sports, " Duff " will be remembered for his starring roles in battalion football and lacrosse, and in company fieldball. In the less active field, he was a staunch member of the French Club, the Newman Club, and the newly-formed Stagline As- sociation. JAMES MICHAEL DUNN Folsom, Pennsylvania Folsom, Pennsylvania (the town, not the prison) is Jim ' s home town and the site of his early athletic endeavors. Buliis Prep in Silver Spring, Maryland, served as the springboard that vaulted Jim into a middie suit. " Jimbo " immediately made a mark for himself as an outstanding athlete, excelling in varsity football and brigade boxing. Jim was captain of the football team his first class year. He was also a member of the Catholic Chapel Choir and the flying squadron. Few weekends passed that did not find Jim dragging, and he held the undisputed course record from Carvel Hall to Bancroft Hall. Jim ' s success at the Academy is only the start of that which he will enjoy in the fleet. BATTALION ANTHONY JAMES DUNNE Chicago, Illinois Tony was born in the thriving city of Chicago in 1938. Before coming to the Naval Academy he attended Bullis Prep. He was a very quiet fellow and liked to spend a good part of his free time in the pad. However, Tony was very active in sports, battalion boxing, company football and Softball, varsity dinghy sailing, and battalion golf took up a good amount of his time. He is Navy all the way, and the life of a submariner is his desire. Tony will be a fine addition to the fleet. ARNOLD RICHARD DuPONT Attica, New York Amy came to the Academy from the thriving metropolis of A_ :a New York, several weeks after graduation from Attica High. The past three years have seen Amy backing the company cross- country, steeplechase, basketball, and bowling teams. Amy has been the company representative for the Log, and a substantial member of both the Masquerader ' s and the Musical Club Show ' s stage crews. Amy plans to spend a year in the fleet and then attend sub- marine school in New London, Connecticut. DAVID GEORGE EASON Winthrop, Massachusetts Dave was born June I, 1937, in Boston, Massachusetts. Con- sidering that his father spent thirty years in the Navy as a Submariner, it is no surprise that Dave chose the Navy as a career and conse- quently came to the Academy. Being a Navy junior, Dave ha: most of the states, and spent two years in Hawaii. Since entering the Academy, Dave has participated vigorously in sports, including four years of battalion bowling: four years of fieldball, and four years as catcher on the company softball team. Dave has been a member of the Boat Club and Foreign Languages Club. Upon graduation, Dave plans to follow in his father ' s footsteps and enter " Sub " School. 5? FIRST WILLIAM ROY FANNEMEL Aitkin, Minnesota Although he came to the Academy from a small town, Bill never failed to have a story to tell, or an experience to relate. His ease at conversation made him quite the ladies ' man. Bill ' s favorite extracurricular activities were Masqueraders and the Brigade Activi- ties Committee, but he was, perhaps, better known as a member of the excused squad, having received his class numerals as a youngster, and his varsity " E " during second class year. Although his taste for country music was not always shared by neighboring midshipmen, his sense of humor and easygoing outlook on life made him popular with all of his classmates. g the MICHAEL ROBERT FENN Kokc Indiana Mike came to the Academy directly from high school. However, he found the academics here an easy match for him. His participation in the Science Seminar attested to his ability and interest in science, and it was rumored that half a ton of science fiction passed through his room during his stay here at Navy. He had the distinction of being responsible for the most elaborate bricking party in the history of the Fourth Company, being rewarded with a quick trip to the showers. Mike was a varsity lacrosse manager for three years, and spent the off seasons bowling for the First Battalion. After graduation it will be Navy Line for this popular " hoosier. " Pemaquid Point CHARLES FINK FISCHER II Princeton, New Jersey " Fink " Fischer entered the Naval Academy in June of 1956, after having completed three years at the Lawrenceville School in Princeton, New Jersey, which he calls his home. He was a member of the Plebe Fencing Team, and has participated in battalion tennis. He obtained a YP command as a senior member of the Power Boat Squad- ron. Academically, " Fink " is not what we would term an avid student of the sciences; however, -his definite individual type of humor has gone a long way in putting a laugh into each " 4-N " day. He foresees a career in the Submarine Service. We feel certain that this type of young man will provide splendid material for the fulfillment of the objectives which he strove so diligently to obtain. ■■0 BATTALION 53 WILLIAM LESLIE FOSTER, JR. Groton, Connecticut A naturalized Connecticut Yankee, Bill joined Navy by Presiden- tial appointment. Being a staunch supporter of company sports, he could be seen on many an afternoon at Hospital Point. Academically, math was his chief Nemesis, but with a confidence that amazed most of us, Bill managed to come through with flying colors. Bill ' s speedy pace was slowed somewhat by a long stay at the Bethesda Naval Hospital youngster year, but with only five weeks of classes he man- aged to pass the course. Back on his feet, he completed his stay at Navy, eager to join the " Tin Can Navy " and later earn his Dolphins. ROBERT BRUCE FRASER Randolph, Massachusetts Although he says he is from Boston, Bob actually hails from a small New England hamlet called Randolph. An avid sports lover, Bob ' s particular interests were playing football and lacrosse during his four years at Navy. Youngster year proved to be a big series of disastrous weekends. In Bob ' s own words, " He who drags blind, gets bricks. " While here at the Academy, he has maintained a high scholas- tic average, and was always willing to lend a helping hand to a class- mate. Bob plans to become a Marine officer upon graduation. DAVID WINSTON GEER San Diego, California After four years of preparation and anxiety, Dave ' s fondest wish is to take command. His every move from now on will be pointed towards skippering either a Destroyer or a Submarine. Joining the Naval Reserve while in Hoover High School of San Diego, he entered the Academy from that program after a year at San Diego State College. Always one for a break in routine, Dave kept his weekends filled with dates, and crowded his afternoons with the roughest of the intramural sports. His leadership is always apparent, and being a man of few words his opinion is highly regarded. With any good fortune he will soon have his dream come true. 54 FIRST DAVID JOSEPH GONIEA Walled Lake, Michigan Dave prepped for the Academy at Columbian Prep in D. C. Soccer caught his fancy here, and he played four brilliant years of company soccer, and three years for the battalion. During the winter season, Dave got his hard earned N in proficiency on the blue trampoline. Dave loved foreign language at USNA and spent many hours studying and planning for Portuguese Club. After graduation, Dave plans to go Navy Air. He might not make Admiral, but should certainly be a fine credit to the service. ROBERT NOBLE GRIFFIN Lisbon Falls, Maine Grif came to us from Lisbon Falls, Maine, sporting a football uniform and a tremendous grin. He quickly found a position on the plebe football team and subsequently reported for duty with the JV ' s. He continued his effort on the football field and has done much to produce winning Navy teams. When not occupied with football, he stayed in top shape with steeplechase and battalion track. Despite the long hours on the athletic field, he found time to excel in aca- demics, and was often on the Superintendent ' s List. His display of hard work and tremendous ability has been an encouraging example for many of us, and promises him a most successful future. WAYNE GROVER GRIFFIN Teaneck, New Jersey The Marine green has its firm grip on this graduate from New Jersey. He brought with him a talented right arm, which he put to good use on the plebe baseball nine. But it ' s Wayne ' s warm personality and keen competitive spirit in the company sports teams that have won him many true friendships. He has distinguished himself in every classroom, but on the weekends, away from the smoking slip- stick, his interest turned to the affable company of a blue-eyed blonde, bridge, and just plain relaxation, in that order. BATTALION 55 WILLIAM LEO GRIFFIN Norwood, Massachusetts For four years, " Griff " showed his all-around ability on the athletic field. His football career was hampered by injuries after plebe year, but this did not take anything from the " Fighting Irishman ' s " competitive spirit, which he displayed in squash, handball, fieldball, ocean sailing and every other sport in which he participated. Bill ' s quips were a constant source of encouragement and entertainment when everything seemed to go wrong. His assistance in academics was always available. It is guys like " Griff " who can be described as the Mid ' s Mid, and will fulfill the requirements for an outstanding officer. GEORGE SAMPLE GROSSMAN III Huntington, New York " Mister Grossman! What is that, a name or a description? " With the mistaken notion that Ensigns don ' t want to be saluted, one of Sixty ' s better known " chow hounds ' ' got himself into hot water early in the game. Youngster year found our hero in the ring, unsuccessfully testing the abilities of the Brigade ' s heavyweight champ, but a lot of character was built that day. Things got interesting twice a year, when the rent fell due. " Where there ' s life there ' s hope. " George ' s hobby seems to have been extra instruction, with the opposite sex running a close second. George ' s future will be Navy Line, where he should be a success. BRUCE HALUDAY Milton, Massachusetts Bruce hails from right outside Boston and calls Milton his home town. It was there that he was born and attended elementary and high school. Always having had the desire to fly, he entered Canoe U. after attending Boston University for a year. He is known for his fierce game of tennis and his New England accent. Bruce is certain to be a welcome addition to those who serve in the Air. 56 FIRST BENJAMIN HARDING HALLOWELL, JR. Chatham, Massachusetts Benny, blond, blue-eyed, and always smiling, hails from Chat- ham, Massachusetts. The fact that Benny comes from the heart of the Ivy League cut little ice with him upon graduation from high school, for in June 1956, he made the decision to enter the Naval Academy. Benny could be found during his plebe and youngster years on Lawrence Field. It was there that Navy ' s baseball team benefited by his able operation behind home plate. Although Ben never knocked himself out academically, he had little trouble establishing a respecta- ble average, despite the " Dago " Department ' s efforts. His carefree, good-natured personality will follow him throughout his Naval Career. RICHARD IRWIN HARRIS Detroit, Michigan Dick, who hails from the city of automobiles, Detroit, has managed to add to the fame of that city by his own brand of indus- trious endeavors. He has continued his football career, begun at Coulee High in Detroit, on the gridiron here at the Academy, as an able member of the varsity 150-pound team, on which he has played for three years. Dick couples his able academic proficiency with a prolific sense of practicality. Good jazz records, with an occasional rock-n-roll beat, keep him musically occupied. A terrific ladies ' man, Dick has won the hearts of many fair maidens, but manages to keep them all guessing, in the true midshipman style. Good luck to a good Marine. WILLIAM JOHN HASTIE Arnold, Maryland " Thar she blooows. " This familiar cry ringing down the halls of the first company area can mean only one thing . . . the approach of the great white whale. Whale, known to those less intimate, as Sandy, was a constantly imposing figure, not only about Bancroft, but on the athletic field as well. He had an undying love for lacrosse, and the inherent ability for the sport which is so often found in native Marylanders. Sandy proved this ability as a mainstay on the varsity squad for three years. A farm boy at heart, even the cold grey walls could not shut out Sandy ' s interest in the outdoors. Having been a devout hunter from his boyhood days, he proved an excellent aid to the Varsity pistol team. Sandy possesses a certain sincerity of character not often found. It is this sincerity, coupled with his vast good humor and his constant willingness to help anyone under any circumstances, which creates in him a rare individualist, who is assured of a successful future. BATTALION 57 ROBERT DANIEL HASTINGS Clearfield, Pennsylvania Dan came to the Academy fresh from the campus of Penn State University, and represents one of the great gains of the First Company. His casual attitudes were always refreshing, and his friend- ship was much sought and treasured. Dan ' s kindness and warmth of personality were reflected in everything he said, and manifested by his continually going out of his way to do favors. There is no doubt that he will always gain the respect and admiration of those under him, as he has of everyone who knows him. Dan can be considered the perfect roommate, liberty buddy, confident advisor, and great friend. kl yn. JAMES JOHN HENRY, JR. New York Jim — the mystery man — where did the boy from Brooklyn get a southern drawl? A hot man with the books, Jim was always quick to help any one, classmate or plebe. He was a faithful plodder in sports. Four years out of the money in company steeplechase, and still running. He was also a battalion keggler and company sailor. Jim is well remembered as one of the worst baritones in Naval Academy history. Ambitious to be a triple threat, he wants to go Line after graduation, and try both Air and submarines later. JOHN GILES HERBEIN Birdsboro, Pennsylvania Jack came to Naval Academy straight from his starlit days at Birdsboro High School. He likes to remember his basketball and track team as among the best in his area, and it is easy to get Jack to tell a funny story about life in Birdsboro. Jack ' s time was divided between academics, soccer, boxing, and his girl. Having a firm desire to succeed, Jack does well in anything he undertakes. Graduation will see him take his place in Navy Line, and he looks forward to ships and the sea. 58 FIRST I RICHARD GEORGE HOECKER New Rochelle, New York Gifted with a sharp insight into human nature, " Rich " seems to have found the way to enjoy even the most trivial of duties. Active in sports in high school in New Rochelle, New York, and at Bullis Prep, " Rich " continued at the Academy, playing plebe football and baseball, and varsity baseball his upperclass years. The in-between seasons found him playing company fieldball and cross-country. His activity did not cease with the weekend, as " Rich " was always one to broaden his education. With his open mind and perseverance, " Rich " is destined to make his life a successful one. BATTALION JOHN RICHARD HUNT St. Louis, Missouri Jack came to the Academy after completing a year at the University of Missouri. During his four years at the Academy he has taken active parts in the Glee Club and the Catholic Choir. He participated in boxing and football. His character is of the finest quality. He is self confident; and has a great deal of initiative. He knows very well the power of kindness, and has never hesitated to lend a helping hand to his many friends. His dragging experiences and pleasing Irish wit will always be remembered by his classmates, for meeting and getting to know Jack is an opportunity no one should miss. His dynamic capabilities will take him far, no matter what field of endeavor he chooses. 59 % I 1 - — ft THOMAS ALLAN HYDE Arlington, Virginia There was never a man who gave more of himself, while trying to perform a task, than Tom Hyde. Always doing things in a very meticulous way to the best of his ability, he is regarded as one man in a million. He was the pride of his class when he was seen scoring touchdowns, as a youngster on the varsity football team, and con- tinued to be regarded as such, as can be seen by his high service aptitude. In the spring, he continued by honoring Navy on the varsity lacrosse field. As a student Tom was always way above average, and spent many hours helping a classmate, who was less fortunate than he, in understanding one of our more difficult subjects. Fortunate will be the service who gets this man. Weston, FREDERICK BRADLEY JOHNSON Massachusetts This smiling lad who entered these portals via Bullis Prep, originally hailed from Weston, Massachusetts. No dry land sailor, Rick sailed many years before joining the crew of the Royona four years ago. The Musical Club Shows, Ring Committee, and Trident have seen much of his time and effort, especially in the field of art. If the Navy ever needs a public relations man, it need look no further; Rick, with half a chance, could sell Bancroft Hall with ease. Upon graduation, Rick will be doing most of his sailing under water, for he plans to enter the submarine school at New London. GAIL ALBERT KRISTENSEN Munster, Indiana Although Kris came to the Academy from the landlocked Middle West, he soon found the sea much to his liking. Battalion yawl and ocean sailing have been his main participation for four years, but he has managed to find time for stage crew, antiphonal choir, the Log and the Lucky Bag. When not engaged in one of these activi- ties, Kris could be found either dragging, or attempting to keep up with the academic grind. But whatever his occupation, it was always just a part of the means to the graduation end; an end which he hopes will lead to the submarine. 60 FIRST ■ LENNIS LARRY LAMMERS Hardin, Montana Len came to the Academy after a year of college at Montana State. Life proved to be a little more trying for Len at USNA than during his former college days. Academics came slow but sure to Len, who spent many a sleepless exam week. Music was a much easier application of the mind for Len, and his trumpet was well known in the NA-IO for four years. Len found Eastern girls somewhat different, but was often seen with them for that pleasant weekend diversion. Len could be found sparking the Fourth Company volleyball team any afternoon in the fall or spring. Len hopes to make Navy Air his future occupation. HAL PHILLIP LANSING Ch cago, Hal attended high school in Chicago. Upon graduation he moved into the field of law, attending Chicago City Junior College and Northwestern University. After completion of one year of pre- law, he came to the Naval Academy. At first lost in the tempo of life here, Hal could not choose one of the many naval careers, but after much deliberation, he took a very avid interest in aviation. Hal has a fine appreciation of music and has spent much of his free time practicing on the piano. With all this work, he found time to be on the Log and Splinter staffs and WRNV. Perhaps one of the most congenial persons here, he was friendly and liked by everyone. PORTER LEWIS, JR. Alexandria, Virginia Since Porter first saw the light of day here in sunny Annapolis, it is only natural that he returned to the Academy. Being a Navy junior only added to his desire. For his varsity sport Porter picked dinghy sailing, and he has participated since plebe year, braving the storm- tossed waters of the Severn to uphold Navy ' s honor on the sea. Since sailing, and dragging every weekend, did not occupy all of his time, Porter decided, graciously, to give part of the remainder to academics. Always willing to help a friend, Porter was well liked by those with whom he came in contact, with the notable exception of the plebes. We all join in wishing him a long and happy career in the Navy ' s Silent Service. BATTALION 61 SOTIR LIAKOS Modesto, California From Athens, Greece, and Modesto, California, came Sotir Liakos. alias Sam, to the hallowed halls of Bancroft. Always wanting to be a naval officer and leader of men, Sam gained invaluab le ex- perience as corn-excused squad. Constantly on the lookout for a good looking date, he never let the ladies get him down. His wonderful personality, together with a great sense of humor, have made Sam ever popular with his classmates. Sam should prove to be a valuable asset to the fleet. ' ( " m y m 4yj£ GAETON ANTHONY LONG, JR. Brooklyn, New York Gaet came to us from Brooklyn, New York. Following high school, Gaet went to Stephen ' s Institute. Not content with civilian life, he decided to make the service his career and entered the Academy. Known for his fast game of squash, Gaet was always a strong addition to the company sports teams. Gaet hopes to make the Silent Service his career, and has aimed all his efforts in that direction. Always seen at the parties, Gaet will be long remembered for his smiling face and his Brooklyn accent. EDWARD BLAIR LONGTON Montclair, New Jersey Lou came to USNA directly from Montclair High School, where he left behind a trail of broken hearts. He has continued to win and lose friends of the opposite sex, but he has done nothing but win friends among his classmates. Lou, a perennial sandblower, has always been a staunch Navy supporter in athletics, and he has con- tributed heavily to his intramural sports teams, especially in volleyball and cross-country. No academic slouch either, an occasional burst of genius has put Lou on the Superintendent ' s List. His combination of wit, intelligence, and friendship will undoubtedly carry Lou on to a successful Navy career. 62 FIRST JOSEPH CRUMPLER MAIOLO Norton, Virginia Joe was born and lived amidst the beauty ot the mountains and rivers of Virginia which communicated to him health and a per- sonal character. The love for football, music, literature and friendships are inherent qualities of Joe; they rewarded him with innumerable friends. At the Academy, he played 150-pound varsity football, com- pany basketball, and squash, where he had the opportunity to display the drive and sportsmanship he possesses. His intervention in the Italian Club which brought him memories of his ancestors ' country, and in the Catholic Choir was appreciated by those organizations. We hope this is not a farewell, Joey, in fact we are sure we ' ll meet again. Meanwhile: " Think like a philosopher and act like a king. " PAUL MANKOWICH Bel Air, Maryland Mank has managed to put the small town of Bel Air on the map, via the route of outstanding performance at the Naval Academy. This Maryland boy has earned three track letters for the shot and discus, and two letters as left end for the Navy football team. On top of this, Paul has managed to maintain a very respectable academic average throughout his Academy career. During his somewhat limited spare time, Paul has cultivated a highly discriminatory taste for " Rock and Roll " a la Hi-Fi. He claims that sounds help him think. Paul has chosen Navy Line for his post-Academy service. GILBERT THOMAS MARIANO, JR. Hummelstown, Pennsylvania Tom ' s greatest problem, during his four-year tenure on the Severn, was convincing people that there really is a place called Hummelstown. Aside from this ever-present difficulty, he handled things with ease. Tom, in fact, had a certain ease of manner that is hard to find. This made him invaluable as a confidant or simply as a friend with whom to " shoot the breeze. " But if one word were chosen to describe Tom it would be " sport. " An excellent athlete, he was a standout in almost every form of battalion and company sport and proved himself on the football field, as a topnotch quarterback for the varsity I50 ' s. Tom has gleaned from his avid participation in athletics a tremendous determination to win in any field. This, combined with a constantly delightful personality, forms a combination one must go a long way to surpass. FIRST BATTALION 63 THOMAS JOSEPH MARTI Chicago, Illinois Where there are beaches and where the sun shines, there you ' ll find Tom. Cominq from Chicago ' s Lane Tech High School, he worked as a life guard for several years on Lake Michigan. Going to Navy was a dream-come-true, and he got right into things with swimming. His drive and determination have put him in the center of all aquatic sports such as: plebe and varsity swimming and water polo. In line with his love for the water comes his second dream, that of the submarine service. " Subs " are his destination upon graduation. The submarine service will be getting an able leader, full of ambition and enthusiasm, with an ever ready smile and a cheerful greeting for all. ROBERT DALE MATULKA Chinook, Montana The little guy from a big state with an even bigger heart, " Chinook " was well known for his easygoing good nature and spon- taneous humor. To him, Montana is the best state in all the fifty, and coming from a farming family he naturally loves the outdoors. Before entering the Academy, Bob was a Kappa Sig at Montana State Col- lege, where he majored in mechanical engineering. While at USNA he had a fine academic record, which will now hold him in good stead as he enters a career in Naval Aviation. J . DENNIE LOCKHART McCRARY Macon, Georgia Dennie is a southern gentleman from Macon, Georgia, who came to the Naval Academy immediately upon graduation from high school. He is a fine person who will do just about anything for a friend, and he is well liked by all who know him. A fierce competitor in our intramural sports program and an ardent football fan, Dennie can usually be found in the gym or playing football. Dennie, apart from his interest in sports, also does well in academics and his name has quite often appeared on the Superintendent ' s List. Dennie hopes to enter flight training at Pensacola after graduation. Here ' s wishing the best of luck to a swell guy. 64 FIRST I I JOHN CLINTON McCRORK Center Square, Pennsylvania John came to USNA from the heart of Pennsylvania, of which he is immensely proud. Seldom did a day pass when " Center Square " was not mentioned. Mac has made a tremendous success during his four years at Navy. John was a great advocate of dinghy sailing, in which he won his letters as manager. Witty comments were John ' s specialty; these lightened the atmosphere and made the routine less gloomy when the chips were down. Few people will ever forget John ' s easygoing way and manner. WILLIAM MILLS McDONALD Gainesville, Georgia Although born in the North, Mac has spent most of his life in Georgia and was always an ardent supporter of the South. Besides being a die-hard Rebel, Mac was famous for his overabundance of female admirers. During his stay at the Academy, Mac was a stand- out on the company soccer and Softball teams, as well as being an outstanding defensive player on the fieldball team. Mac always main- tained a fair academic average despite the Bull Department ' s aver- sion to him. After graduation Mac plans to continue his career in the Marines. If he does as well in the Corps as he has done at the Academy, he cannot help but succeed. THOMAS FREDERIC McDONOUGH North Bend, Oregon At the end of four years, it is an interesting experience to look back. The days of plebe summer with its pulling whaleboats and un- stenciled gear are long gone, but they will always be an amusing recollection. The first days of that academic year were nothing but chaos. There could be no moment in a plebe ' s mind as dull as an Army-Navy game tie. The years passed with their routine manner. Grades were good and company and battalion sports served to break the monotony. Tom s two major activities have been the debate team for three years and lacrosse manager. So concludes four years on the Severn! BATTALION 65 ounc DAVID CHARLES MOERSCHEL Bay, Maryland He answers to the name Merf, which he picked up even before his high school days at Severn School, a nearby prep school. Merf claims that when he was a little boy, his friends and he would some- times make fun of the Midshipmen. His sport is lacrosse which he started at Severn and continued while at the Academy. He plays it very well and is also an avid fan of boating, swimming and water skiing. Descending from a line of mariners which is centuries old, Merf is bound to make an excellent naval officer. J V " ALFONSO HECTOR MORALES Tucson, Arizona Al came to Navy after one year at Yale. A top-notch man with a lacrosse stick or a sabre, Al participated in plebe and varsity fencing and lacrosse. His winning smile and easygoing personality have won him many friends. During his summer vacations, Al might be found traveling extensively in Europe, climbing mountains in Ari- zona, or taking in a Broadway show in New York. This " son of Arizona " is sure to have an outstanding career. Yale ' s loss was Navy ' s gain. MAURICE JOSEPH MORAN Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Moe came to Canoe U. via West Philadelphia Catholic High School and the Naval Reserve. Though he never excelled in academics, his devotion to service and never-say-die attitude caused him to succeed where many others failed. He was active in a great variety of extracurricular activities, including crew, company sguash, and volleyball. He could also be seen each year in the Musical Club Show. Moe feels that his future lies in aviation and will be working toward a successful career as a wearer of the golden wings. His friendly smile and love for a party will long be remembered. 66 FIRST CARLETON EDGAR MOTT, JR. Annapolis, Maryland Upon graduation from Severn School. Carl entered the USNA via the Naval Reserve to achieve his goal of becoming a Naval aviator. He was best known for his avid passion for rhythm and blues music which could be heard echoing from his room any time of the Jay. When not listening to music, Carl could be found handling a lacrosse stick, rowing in a shell on the Severn or playing football. His daily schedule was interrupted by studies which he seemed to comprehend guite easily. MARVIN FRANCIS MUCHA Chicago, Illinois The year before coming to the Academy Marv attended St. Joseph ' s College, Indiana, and took courses in philosophy, math and literature. While at the Academy his interests were varied and his extracurricular activities brought him into contact with the Log, Musical Club Shows, Catholic Choir, and Glee Club. The Glee Club undoubtedly brought him the most enjoyment, for even as a plebe he went on trips to St. Louis, Boston and New York. He has a great interest in music which ranges from Bach to jazz. Sailing, too, carried an interest, and he ultimately hopes to have his own yawl. Marv says that he strongly believes in the future of the Navy, and plans to go into one of its most promising branches, submarines. -- ' : FRANCIS XAVIER MUNGER Rochester, New York " Old Foxy " came to Navy Tech after four years as an enlisted man. Rather than actively try to beat the " system, " he found it less painful to simply ignore it. Although not exactly the athletic type, our hero soon developed chronic shin splints as anchor man on the company cross-country team. " Where does the excused squad form? " During youngster year, Foxy ' s troubles began when he inadvertently invited five girls to the Christmas Hop. Academically speaking, he was often heard to say, " Why do it tonight when it can be put off until tomorrow? " BATTALION 67 MELVIN ANTHONY NOSAL Columbus, Nebraska Mel came to the Academy from the fleet after a year at NAPS. This probably accounts for his serious determination to go Navy line after graduation. He is quick to respond to any mention of Nebraska and he is an ardent year-around sports fan. He was quite the athlete himself, having participated in such sports as bat- talion and company soccer and plebe dinghy sailing. He is one of the few men to leave the Academy after being injured while prac- ticing on the blue trampoline. Academically speaking, Mel was al- ways one of the top three in the room. ANGEL JORJE ORTIZ Quito, Ecuador Angle was born in Quito, Ecuador, on March 5, 1936. His uncle, Hugo Ortiz, was a national war hero. He attended the Ecuadorean Naval Academy for two years, standing second in his class. Angle participated in gymnastics and intramural field ball and soccer. He is one of those special persons one reads about but seldom meets. He has a great love for culture, as displayed by his classical music, art, and great book collections. He is a very good speaker and excelled in foreign language activities. His greatest love is the sea. He was active with the YP squadron and will well serve his Ecuadorean Navy. He was truly an asset to the Brigade. Bon Voyage! •- RONALD GEORGE OVERSTROM Corning, New York Ron brought his dry wit to the Academy when he left Corning, New York. He made good use of it by always having a choice com- ment ready for the dull moments. He was an excellent student and always had his name on the Superintendent ' s List. Ron did not spend all his time studying, however. He was a member of the French Club, the NACA, and the Trident staff. Having played varsity basketball in high school, Ron was the mainstay of the company basketball team. He also found time to help out with many of the company ' s projects. This smiling New Yorker will be remembered by all hands for his cheerful remarks in the mornings. 68 FIRST RICHARD ROLAND PARISEAU Attleboro, Massachusetts Richard Roland Pariseau, born on February 3, 1938, in Attle- boro, Massachusetts, has left quite a mark on the Naval Academy. Dick starred in two varsity sports, football and lacrosse. He came here from Tabor Academy where he starred in football and basketball and was very popular. Besides being an all-around athlete, Dick found no trouble excelling academically, and he had a 3.4 average. He also was a top striper and a really great guy. Dick plans to fly now and it ' s certain that he ' ll do as much for the Naval Service as he did at the Naval Academy. pemaquid point IRA EUSTACE PARRY Baltimore, Maryland A native of Baltimore, Buz was already well known on arrival because of two years spent at NAPS. During his four years at the Naval Academy he became even more popular throughout the Bri- gade because of his smile and friendly personality. Although never a genius, Buz was able to hold his own in academics, and surprising no one but himself, never did become unsat. It was as a romantic young midshipman that Buz found his true metier. Though pinned by Second Class year, he had already left behind a long trail of broken hearts. As for the future, it holds no fears. Buz is on the threshold of a fine career and a satisfying and useful life. ;- Hs JAMES EDWARD PHELAN Lincoln, Nebraska " Knock off sweating, Mr. Phelan. " With perspiration cascad- ing down his face, Jim was launched into Plebe year. From the be- ginning, Jim built his reputation upon his desire to make his mid- shipman days a success. His goals were high, but his desire and determination made them a reality; whether it was turning in top scores in pistol competition, writing a perfect physics examination, learning to play tennis, or just keeping ahead of half a dozen girls at once. Although quietness was his nature, he was seldom without the right answer to a classmate ' s problem or that bit of humor when a laugh was needed. Jim takes with him those qualities necessary for a successful future. BATTALION 69 9 XMBii«Hlal MICHAEL DAVID PORTER New Orleans, Louisiana Mite hails from New Orleans, Louisiana. He arrived with a lot of ambition and a nickname — " the fish. " It was the proper one because every afternoon during the winter, as a member of the swimming team, he went to the pool to practice for that tough one. The butterfly became his favorite stroke and the 200-yard swim his best event. During youngster year he broke a Naval Academy record and received his letter. But swimming was not his only occupation. His constant guest for knowledge was unguestionably manifested by his interest in such material as rock ' n ' roll and the Washington Post ' s funnies. But, with all joking aside, Mike will unguestionably be a success in the fleet and it has been a great pleasure to have known and to have been associated with him. WILLIAM FRANK RAMSEY G roves, [c " Moose, " as his friends call him, hails from that glorious re- public of Texas. He attended Lamar Tech for one year before leav- ing his Naval Reserve Unit and entering the Academy. Bill is always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone who needs it. He is also one of those rare, true friends. His recreational pursuits are fishing, swim- ming, and duck hunting. Bill is an avid Navy man and thirty years is his goal. TOM VAN RICHARDSON Monticello, Georgia Rich was born on the 29th of July, 1936, in Monticello, Georgia. He attended Monticello High School before going away to school. He attended Middle Georgia College for two years where he majored in science before entering the Academy. At the Academy Rich found a home away from home. Losing himself in the sports program (boxing, fieldball, cross-country and volleyball), extracur- ricular activities (the French Club and NACA), and his academic work, he found little time for wine, women, and song. Rich plans to wear Marine green when he graduates. 70 FIRST HENRY JOSEPH RINNERT Marion, Ohio Although Hank came to USNA after one year of fraternity life at Baldwin Wallace College, he adapted himself quite easily to his new environment. Acquiring the position of company representa- tive during his youngster year, Hank maintained this role throughout his remaining two years on the Severn. Academics apparently did not offer too much of a problem, as he could be found most fre- quently in the rack. The remainder of his spare time was spent in active participation in battalion football and tennis. Despite his quiet nature, Hank was often seen dragging a variety of girls to Navy ' s social events. However, he has managed to keep in his possession his class crest, a fact of which he is quite proud. Regardless of which branch of the Navy claims Hank as its own, this capable and stead- fast person will be a valuable asset in the service of our country. WILLIAM ANTHONY ROCHE Nanticoke, Pennsylvania Bill came to the Academy after serving a term at Greenbrier Military School. Poncho, as he was called at the Academy, was very active in company sports, twice being a member of the Brigade championship basketball team. He also played plebe football and four years of company fieldball. Although Bill didn ' t drag very much around the Academy, he is very well known around the elite circles of Nanticoke, Pennsylvania. If all goes well, the Marine Corps will obtain a fine officer. ERIC MICHAEL ROEMISH Binghamton, New York Bud came to the Naval Academy fresh from high school in Binghamton, New York. The family bakery at home kept his company well supplied with cakes and cookies during plebe year, but he was perhaps most notorious as the " human guillotine ' ' of first class ties on Hundredth Night. Bud lent his athletic talents to the First Bat- talion football team and also found time for extracurricular activities In the form of Chapel and an occasional diet or two. Graduation will find him headed for a career in Naval Aviation. BATTALION 71 TORRENCE WISEMAN ROGERS Indianapolis, Indiana Possessing a quiet, unassuming manner and a roguish sense of humor which belied his drive and high ideals, Torry is remembered as a productive and hard-working individualist. Undefeated in com- pany cross-country plebe year, he went on to run with and later manage the varsity cross-country squad and to row 150-pound crew. As managing editor of the I960 Lucky Bag, his efforts contributed to a great extent toward the publishing of a successful yearbook. In addition to a certain lass, Torry ' s outside interests include medicine, rocket technology, racing sports cars, and working on his MGA back home in Indianapolis. 3 JOSEPH RICHARD ROSENGREN Hagerstown, Maryland Joseph Richard Rosengren (Rosey Joe) was born July 26, 1937, in Kansas City, Missouri, • but considers Hagerstown, Maryland, his home. Joe entered the Academy from Hagerstown High School where he excelled in sports and was an outstanding individual. His sports interests at the Academy centered around golf but also in- cluded battalion football, company basketball and company Softball. Maintaining a 2.9 average, plus the fact that Joe is a very likable and capable individual, has left no doubt that as he embarks on a Naval Air career he will be an outstanding officer. ROBERT ALBERT ROSS Kulpmont, Pennsylvania Bob comes from Kulpmont, Pennsylvania, a small mining town in the anthracite coal district of Pennsylvania. After graduating from high school, he attended a year of prep school at New York Military Academy where he was active in football and lacrosse. After com- pleting a year of prep school, he entered Bucknell University in Lewis- burg, Pennsylvania, on an athletic scholarship and pursued a pre- medical course. During this year at Bucknell, Bob took the entrance exam for the Academy and entered the Academy the following June. While at the Academy, Bob played four years of football and could always be seen with members of the team. 72 FIRST I KEVIN THOMAS RYAN Pittsburgh, New York Kev, or " Tiger, " as he was affectionately known by the plebes and his classmates, was a stalwart on the Fighting Fourth ' s volleyball, soccer, and radiator squads during his four-year vacation on the banks of the Severn. He was the first midshipman to write in Gaelic and still manage to pass all of the academic courses. He turned out to be a Dago cut, having mastered the Portuguese language in only two short years. However, his Naval Academy ambition, to speak at a Portuguese Club banquet, was never quite realized. Kev hopes to go Navy Air. COLIN HENRY SAARI Port Angeles, Washington Washington was the state that Colin called home. He entered the Naval Academy by way of the Naval Reserve as a lowly seaman. Academics did their best to dominate Colin but he found an escape in dragging, sports, and the company coffee mess. Being an advocate of the Great Northwest he found the flat East Coast somewhat dis- mal but his easygoing mann er carried him through until he was able to head back West. The four years spent at the school by the Severn did their best to change his views of the Navy but the Silent Service won the battle and has gained a future officer. FRANKLIN HARWOOD SAUNDERS New York City, New York Pinkie, as he is known to his friends, is a Navy junior and has lived in many places but he calls Toronto home. Although it was widely known that he usually preferred the relaxation of deep sleep to athletics, he was a valuable asset to such teams as the Third Company cross-country and steeplechase teams and was a first-rate defenseman on the battalion lacrosse team. Pinkie is one of the few who can go into a skinny final with a 3.2 and come out with a 2.5. Prior to entering the Academy he was in the Marines and attended the Naval Academy Preparatory School. Being a staunch supporter of the Corps he intends to return to the Marines upon graduation. Pinkie will certainly be as big an asset to that fine outfit as he was to the Brigade. BATTALION 73 JOHN RAYMOND SCARBOROUGH, JR. Norfolk, Virginia Norfolk, Virginia, proudly claims Ray and remembers him for his exploits on the football field and wrestling mat. After preparing at Bullis Prep, Ray joined the Brigade and immediately entered the hospital. But he bounced back +o become a prominent fixture in the wrestling loft. Old " Scars, " with his infinite array of jokes and humor, was well liked by his classmates and although he was forever grumbling about the academics he left his mark at the Academy. STEPHEN JAY SCHEFFER New York, New York One bright summer day Steve said goodbye to his Greenwich Village hideaway and made the long trek to Bancroft on the Severn. Armed with a constant smile, which was enough to brighten the dark- est of the " Dark Ages, " and an unlimited interest in everything about him, Steve took on Academy life with an unusual zeal. He was a mainstay of WRNV through the station ' s hours of trial and tribula- tion and he was a hard worker for the Public Relations Committee. Steve further enriched his extracurricular activities as a Log editor for two years. His widespread interest in Brigade affairs was, how- ever, secondary to his sincere interest in the people about him. His many classmates will attest to the fact that he had no casual acguaint- ances; Steve had only good friends. CLIFFORD FRANCIS SCHUMANN Jersey City, New Jersey Cliff, often called " Rock, " was undoubtedly one of the most personal figures in the Second Company. His ready sense of humor and application of wit towards the everyday intimacies of life within the system made him a popular figure among his classmates. While at Navy, Cliff demonstrated his athletic talents by serving on the plebe baseball and gymnastics teams, making the Brigade Boxing finals, and shortstopping a strong company " A " Softball team. Extracurricular activities were not forgotten though, as his bongo drums, the Catholic Choir, and the Drum and Bugle Corps may attest. Hailing from Jersey City and prepping at Columbian, Cliff continually worked to improve himself and to achieve a small measure of success. This has been more than accomplished. The Navy should be proud of a job well done. FIRST PETER ANTHONY SHANLEY Elmhurst, New York Champ ' s life on the Severn has been a busy one. His ability to characterize famous people kept " Plebe Pete ' in much demand for happy hours (which really were happy) and come-arounds for de- pressed " firsties. " Pete ' s favorite sport, trampoline Mk I Mod Blue, was often interrupted by his job as baseball manager which he shared with a few reluctant trips around the cross-country course dur- ing off seasons. With such a busy day, Pete ' s high marks were made with a strong will and a good flashlight. With his leaving Annapolis to join the fleet, Pete will take with him the good wishes of not only his classmates but of all those who knew him. JOHN BERLIN SHARP, JR. Louisville, Mississippi Sharp, who hails from Louisville, Mississippi, entered the Acad- emy after attending Georgia Military Academy and Mississippi State University where he majored in Electrical Engineering. Most of his time in sports was contributed to battalion football and gymnastics. His extracurricular activities consisted of being a member of the Portuguese Club and the Naval Academy Christian Association. A major part of his spare time was contributed to Academy social events where he could usually be seen with a nice-looking drag. Because Navy aviation always attracted Sharp, he now plans to begin pre-flight training in Pensacola, Florida. -: JOHN FREDERICK SHAW Hagerstown, Indiana John Shaw — a handy man to have around, whether at a party, a bull session, or just sitting across from you during study hour. Jack studied hard and came up with a lot of right answers. He was always good for a laugh. We thought he used to study too hard so we had a coming out party for him. That loosened him up a bit but he still managed to get good grades. Old John hasn ' t figured out exactly what he wants to do after graduation but whatever it is, he is certain to find success. BATTALION 75 1 FRANK THOMAS SIMPSON Orono, Maine To Frank, the Naval Academy and Submarines have been the shining light in the future since early in his childhood. After high school he chose to start toward this goal as a white hat and spent a year in electronics technicians school and NAPS before coming to the Academy. Here, Simp contributed his talents to battalion football and company cross-country while managing the crew team for two years. Simp also found a great deal of pleasure in his pad but the Stagliners ' call to arms on Saturday nights seldom failed to rout him out. Challenges by the Bull and Dago departments were brushed aside and Simp has fought his way right up to the prow of that Submarine. GERALD THOMAS SKIDGEL Saco, Maine After a year of college at Bowdoin. which is in the heart of the Ivy Colleges in Maine, Jere decided to don the Navy Blue and to enter into the arms of Mother Bancroft. Being an ardent sports enthusiast, he will always be remembered for his spirit and sportsmanship which brought victory to several company and battalion teams. Although not a star man, he experienced little difficulty with academics. After his classmates mastered his New England dialect, they never seemed to tire of his tales of his beloved Maine. When he enters Navy Air, we know the Navy will have a hard worker. cool thinker, and above all, a fine gentleman. n »s THOMAS JOSEPH SOLAK Chicago, Illinois Tom came to the banks of the Severn from the shores of Lake Michigan. While in high school he discovered the fun of playing football and at Navy proved to all that he was very capable on the field. One of Tom ' s many pastimes was listening to music. He also sang in the choir during his four years at USNAY. Asked at any time what food he preferred, his reply was steak. Although he would always deny it, his roommates would vouch that he constantly talked in his sleep — in Polish, no less. Tom wants Navy Air after graduation. 76 FIRST NICHOLAS JOSEPH STASKO Kingston, Pennsylvania After graduation from Larksville, Pennsylvania, High School in 1955, Nick entered Wilkes College in Wilkes-Barre. Pennsylvania, where he studied engineering and became vice president of the Engineering Ci b. The realization of Nick ' s dreams was his entrance into the Naval Academy. This opportunity was fully appreciated and exploited to the fullest. He was usually on the Superintendent ' s List but academics were not his only preoccupation. Company soccer, field- ball, and battalion soccer and crew kept his constitution hard. The weekends in turn softened up this granite constitution and the Class Ring and Crest Committee, Chess Club, and Russian Club satisfied his urge for the gregarious club life. Career-minded Nick looks for- ward to the many opportunities to be had in the future of Navy line. ROBERT LIVINGSTON STEELE Pasadena, California Coming to Navy after a year at both UCLA and Tokyo ' s Sophia University, Bob brought with him a willingness to do hard work. This was demonstrated in that the Superintendent ' s List seldom ap- peared without his name. But never one to be known as a bookworm, Bob busied himself with many of the company and battalion intramural squads. The Reception Committee kept his weekends busy with en- tertaining visiting teams. When Bob was around, you were always sure to know of the advantages of the Golden State. Bob ' s only concession was that there was a certain Georgia peach that even California couldn ' t equal. After a year at sea, Bob hopes for assign- ment to sub school. Good luck to a great guy in his service endeavor. ROBERT GEORGE STEVENSON Mount Pleasant, Iowa " Deac " left the fields of Iowa to come East for a look at the Navy and the sea. Youngster cruise filled the bill and it wasn ' t long afterwards that he was looking to a career in Navy Air. Besides the never-ending fields of corn, he left at home his OAO, wondering if Christmas would be complete or if Bob were staying on at Canoe U. to play bridge. Not one to expound to the profs, he nevertheless had an easy time staying high on the academic ladder and will be a welcome addition to any service. BATTALION 77 LARRY DEE THOMAS Rock Indi STANLEY CHARLES STUMBO Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Stan came to the Academy straight from high school in Pitts- burgh. During his stay at Navy Stan has become well known for his flip-flops on the Gym team. As for the fairer sex — Stan always answered, " I ' d rather spend my free time sleeping. " The Navy is his first choice despite youngster cruise. He is known for being master of the untuned uke. With his inquisitive mind he found little trouble in solving the mysteries of academics. Cheerful and friendly, Stan had a smile for everyone. 4 A EDWARD HARVEY SZWEDA Philadelphia, Pennsylvania From the City of Brotherly Love came Ed Szweda: woodsman, card player, and pool player. During his four years at Navy Ed managed the varsity rifle team and could always be found working out in the boxing ring or lifting weights. A great liberty hound, he could be depended upon for many laughs at a gay drinking party. Not one to refuse women, Ed says he is a confirmed bachelor. Because of his interest in flying, Ed has chosen aviation as his career field. Larry entered the Naval Academy after a year at Rose Poly in his home state of Indiana. His musical preferences lie toward classical pieces, with a flair for bagpipes. During the academic year " Tomi " would be seen frequently in town supporting his favorite extracurricular activity by selling ads for the Log. Many winter afternoons found Larry circling the steeplechase in preparation for the meets, and in the other seasons he was a member of the " Y.P. " squadron where he gained much practical knowledge of navigation. After graduation, this Indiana boy hopes to do some graduate work at Pensacola in a T-34 and then on to fleet aviation. 8 FIRST field DUANE MORGAN TOLLAKSEN Washington, D. C. Quiet, mild-mannered, soft-spoken Duane, hailing from a long line of seafaring men, sometimes boasts of his pirate ancestors or the gun-running he intends to do someday. He has lived on the water, or near it, all of his life; born on Staten Island, New York, he has traveled up and down both coasts and lived in Hawaii. Arriving at USNA, he knew more about radio and electronics than many of his skinny profs. Active in the Radio Club and as an amateur radio operator his first love is communications. Contributing also to the varsity pistol and the battalion yawl sailing teams, he has left a favorable record behind as he seeks his career as a Navy line officer. ROBERT EDWIN TRAISTER Haverhill, Massachusetts Bob, a native down-easterner from Massachusetts, came to the Academy after spending a year of college at Bowdoin. Beginning as a plebe and continuing through his four years at the Academy, Bob demonstrated his athletic talents as a fine brigade boxer and battalion football fullback. Known as " Sambo " by most of his classmates, Bob had the spirit and determination which gained him top honors in anything he undertook, including academics. Following the tradition that " Navy line is mighty fine, " Bob plans to be a " tin can " man. The fleet will benefit by gaining a very capable officer who is always a gentleman in the truest sense and always makes sure the job is done. MARTIN NELSON TULL Pryor, Oklahoma After a year of collegiate ease, Marty gave up the dusty Oklahoma plains to see the sea via USNA. The conversion was com- plete; he actually saw the light and became an enthusiastic booster of Navy line. Academics were merely a necessary evil put up with be- tween football seasons and hard work for the BAC. Tecumseh ' s adorn- ment and the messhall posters have often shown the Tull touch during the past four years. Marty devoted his leftover time to plotting the capture of the current " world ' s most beautiful woman. " No bull session was complete without a contribution from Marty and his classmates were assured of a good time by his presence. The spirit and enthusiasm that he has will be more than welcome throughout his career in Navy Blue. BATTALION 79 MILTON WALLACE WEAVER Lancaster, Pennsylvania After a year in the Naval Reserve and Bullis Prep, Milt came to the Academy where he was to bolster the plebe football and lacrosse teams. After a year of J.V. football, he turned his talents to field ba II and Softball. Talented as Milt was in sports, his luck appeared to run out in skinny; it seems as though he never would admit that F equals MA. Early in second class year Milt made his stab at glory when he managed to blow five circuit breakers in one period. Milt has always been a one woman man, believing that no woman was perfect except his. LOWELL ELLIOTT WEBB Bloomer, Wisconsin Shaggy, as he was called by his classmates because of his receding hair line, came to the Naval Academy from the north woods of Wisconsin via Northwestern Prep School. He left his guns at home and the only hunting that he did at USNA was finding a way in which to get along with the Bull Department. He spent many hours rowing with the 150-pound crew team. Shaggy returned home on his leaves and spent his time there either tinkering with his old Chrysler or entertaining his favorite girl. Navy Air is what he hopes for upon graduation. A ROBERT ESTES WHITE Morgan City, Louisiana After one year at LSU, Bob decided to give up the easy and comfortable ways of civilian college life. It didn ' t take the boy from the " Shrimp Capital of the World " long to be recognized as one of the friendliest guys around. Never one to take the system seriously, Bob was always ready to laugh it up when the going was tough. An outstanding soccer player, Bob was kicking the ball around for the varsity for three years, and as a Navy jet jockey, he ' ll be kicking around the skies for a few more years to come. 30 FIRST k 1 a THOMAS EDWARD WILSON, JR. Newton Lower Falls, Massachusetts During his four years at the Academy, this son of the rocky countryside of Massachusetts had one big problem — getting up at reveille. Once his wives had managed to turn him out, things proved to be no problem, as he did well in everything he undertook. Aca- demics proved to be no obstacle for Tom. He always had plenty of time for dragging, writing letters, and playing cards, which were his favorite pastimes. However, he was also a mainstay on his company sports teams, and could always be found on one of those fields of friendly rivalry. Another one of the many who desire Navy wings, Tom should go far with his pleasant nature and ability to do things well. DAVID JEREMIAH YOUNG Plain City, Ohio Dave came to the Academy from Ohio after a year in prep school. Always quick with a smile or cheerful word, he quickly made many friends. A diligent worker in anything, he did much in both company and brigade sports activities. His quick wit and cheerful attitude were a constant boost to all who associated with him. Dave was a good student and was always willing to help out his classmates. He will always be well remembered by his classmates, and his honesty, industry, and winning personality are assurance of his future success. MARIO ZAMBRA Buenos Aires, Argentina Mario came to the Naval Academy after having completed a year and a half at the Escuela Naval Militar, in Argentina. This was indeed a great challenge for Mario, since he was the first from his country to become a Midshipman at Annapolis. It was soon proven, however, that the challenge was met, for Mario was truly a success. Mario ' s main interest in sports was soccer. He participated in soccer for four years, and was a member of the varsity squad for three of the four. Even though Mario will not serve in our Navy, it has been a great pleasure to have had him aboard these past four years. He is truly a diplomat, who has made all of us closer to our Spanish speaking neighbors to the South. BATTALION 81 PI I DEAN ALLEN ABLOWICH Greenville, Texas After arriving at USNA from his home state of Texas, Al settled into Academy life with a great deal of determination and perseverance. Whether it was tackling a tough homework problem or hitting the rack for an hour, Al has gone about it with this same amount of determination. Not all of his moments have been devoted to these pastimes, however. As a plebe and youngster he ran track and cross-country, and he has also been active in the sailing program at the Academy. After graduation Al plans to go Navy Line. A.. Che CARL AGLIO Pennsylvania A likeable Latin, " Bo " came to the Academy via the gridirons of Columbian Prep and Charleroi, Pennsylvania. Once here, he showed that same drive and ambitious spirit, which, in high school, earned him the tab of " most likely to succeed. " In the afternoons, after the long football season was over, " Bo " could be found in his favorite spot, his bed, listening to his beloved progressive jazz in hi-fi. Three years of football and those cozy afternoons helped time pass quickly, and " Bo " realized his dreams of graduation, that flashy red Corvette, and those flashier wings of gold. ■ aodQ WILLIAM LESTER ALDRICH Montebello, California In the course of a misspent youth, crowded with swimming at Huntington Beach, lifeguarding at the Montebello Natatorium, and skiing in the Sierras, Bill managed to acquire the credits necessary for graduation from California ' s institutions of secondary learning. Here at USNA, Bill was able to keep his grades above average, and to stand near the top of his class in physical training. His afternoons were filled by company 150-pound football in the winter, and yawl sailing in the spring and fall. After graduation, Bill plans to return to his beach boy role, on the white sands bordering Navy ' s cradle of aviation. SECOND BATTALION 83 ALBERT MAXWELL AMES Oceanside, New York Al stepped out of high school into a Navy uniform in 1954. After serving two years as a white hat he came to USNAY. With average grades, he found plenty of time for his favorite sport; the rack. When he wasn ' t in the rack, the rest of his time was spent sailing yawls, listening to Nat " King " Cole, or thinking about sport car racing. A lover in the first magnitude, he vowed never to take that fatal plunge, but was willing to let any girl have the opportunity of finding his weakness. Pensacola will probably be the place where Al will next hang his hat. THOMAS MALCOLM ANDERSON Newington, Connecticut Wearing a friendly smile and filled with enthusiasm, Tom waved good-by to his beloved New England, and came aboard USNA for a four-year cruise. His ability to apply himself, and his desire to learn, resulted in academic success. Even so, Tom was never completely satisfied with his achievements and was constantly striving to do better. On the athletic field his competitive spirit and talented toe were a great asset to the company soccer and football teams. A man of varied interests, Tom could always find time to enjoy a weekend with one of his many drags. The service will be greatly enriched with the presence of this capable leader. ROBERT JOHN ANTONIO Minersville, Pennsylvania Bob ascended from the recesses of a Pennsylvania coal mining town into the dark caverns of Bancroft Hall. He came via NAPS, but still did not have time to kick the coal dust from his heels before entering the Academy. Minersville lost a good athlete, but it was Navy ' s gain. Bob devoted most of his time to varsity baseball, and the rest of his time was spent writing to his one and only. With his tremendous drive, we are sure Bob will find success in whatever field he wishes to enter. 34 SECOND PAUL COURTNEY AUSLEY Orlando, Florida A staunch defender of his beloved Sunshine State, Buz came to the chilly banks of the Severn for a highly successful four years. One of the " Four Princes, " Buz ' s engaging manner and boyish smile seemed to win a new heart each weekend, but, heedless of his wives ' advice, he allowed a certain home town miss to consume much of his time. Buz distinguished himself as a driving intramural lacrosse player, and branched out into 150-pound football during his last two years, but still continued his conscientious efforts at his academics. They paid off well, and his many friends at Navy agree that the fleet will gain a fine and capable young officer, plus a true gentleman. V 1$V- WJ ' RONALD CLARE BABCOCK Ord, Nebraska Arriving at the Academy right out of high school, Ron was determined to continue his football career — first on the plebe team and then as a standout at fullback with the battalion eleven. An all- around athlete, this Nebraska boy also participated in battalion track and company softball. Academics came easy to this blonde lad, and he always maintained high grades, even though he spent a large part of study hour playing cards or reading some pocket novel. Always ready, either to help his classmates with their studies or to join them in their social endeavors, Ron was a valuable asset to the big Thirteenth. ROBERT PAUL BAKER Tulsa, Oklahoma Bob was one of those who pulled himself into the Academy by his boot straps. After joining the Navy in the summer of ' 54, he saw a better future as an officer, and finally came to us via Bainbridge. Always interested in sports, Bob had two favorites; wrestling and sailing. He devoted all four years to both, and competed in three summer ocean races aboard the " ' Light. " Tramid left its mark on Bob, for the future will find him in green. In many ways Bob was somewhat of a ladies ' man, and he never did seem to have much trouble finding a weekend date. Bob always knew where to look for his drags, and never left a stone unturned. BATTALION 85 H in FRANK SANVILLE BARTOLETT III Haddonfield, New Jersey The Garden State of New Jersey yielded this varsity athlete and great asset to the Naval Service. Graduating from Haddonfield Memorial High School in ' 56, " Bart " promptly fitted himself into the Navy way of life. After second class summer, Navy Air is his future. The lacrosse team will lose a valuable player in Bart, since he played plebe, JV, and varsity throughout his four years at Navy Tech. Bart will always be remembered by his classmates, first for being a swell guy, and then for his seventy watt amplifier that blasted them out of the second wing. HENRY WEBSTER BATES Shelburne, Massachusetts The company star, Web arrived from Bullis Prep with a well oiled slide rule and an oft-thumbed calculus book. Academics pre- senting no problem, Web ' s time was devoted to card playing and women. Both of these abilities were aptly displayed on youngster cruise, as many of his classmates will attest. Although Web is an able student, his instructing capabilities are doubtful, as they resulted in a broken limb for an Admiral ' s daughter while on a skiing venture. Many blisters caused Web to switch from crew to sports more fitting to his talents. Pensacola and Navy wings of gold appeal to him and success is certain. Milwauk ee EDWIN WARREN BESCH Wisconsin Ed attended Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, for one year upon graduation from Lutheran High School, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. While at Miami he was a member of the NROTC. Ed ' s interest then turned toward the Naval Academy, which he entered by congressional appointment. During his four years at Canoe U., his outstanding personality made him very popular among the members of all classes. Ed avidly participated in fencing, soccer, steeplechase, and yawl sailing. Extracurricular activities did not escape his attention either, as he was a member of the Gun Club, Aviation Club, Boat Club, Russian Club and the Log and Splinter staff. After graduation exer- cises, Ed will receive a commission as Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps. 86 SECOND i JOHN PETER BEVANS New Orleans, Louisiana After many travels as a Navy junior, Pete finally found a home at Navy, and rapidly gained notoriety as one of the " Four Princes. " Boxing came easy to Pete, and he was one of the outstanding con- tenders for the Brigade title; his bouts with the academic departments proved a little tougher, but his diligent application to studies pulled him through. Youngster cruise found him in Brazil, where he has returned during leave periods to see a special little Brazilian girl. Pete will be remembered by his classmates as a sound friend and a great competitor. CHARLES NICK BIKAKIS Dragerton, Utah Chuck, after three years of college life, decided to start anew at Navy. Since his arrival, few if any dull moments have been spent by his many friends. Being varsity football manager took up a great deal of his time second and first class year, since all but one year of his football eligibility had been used playing at Utah State. His constant hustle in this capacity will be remembered by both coaches and players. Upon graduation, Chuck will start a new and surely suc- cessful career with the Marine Corps. This man from the Rockies will long be remembered by those who were fortunate enough to come in con tact with him. RICHARD BIRTWISTLE, III Swansea, Massachusetts Dick ' s booming voice and witty personality were always a welcome deviation during the " dark ages. " Whether it was with the academic departments or the athletic department, Dick always ex- celled. He was constantly willing to give a helping hand to those of us who did not understand the intricacies of skinny and steam, and he was one of the few chosen to participate in the Advanced Science and Mathematics Seminar. Navy Air and submarines were two of Dick ' s favorite topics. When it came to the fairer sex, Dick always had some good tales to tell and hints to give. Regardless of what course he takes, we can be sure it will lead to the top. BATTALION 87 II DONALD VAUX BOECKER Naperville, Illinois Don came to Navy by way of a small school in Naperville, Illinois, and Columbian Prep in Washington, D. C. His stature, past ability, and personality have made him one of our consistent class leaders and representatives during the past four years. He has been a stalwart on Navy football teams, both plebe and varsity. In addition to football, Don was a better than average golfer, playing three years of varsity golf. Since our flying, second class summer, Don has been looking toward a career in the air, and at present is anticipating his first tour of duty at Pensacola. ROLAND BRANDQUIST Audubon, New Jersey Ron, the pride of New Jersey, came to Navy with great am- bitions, and a football tucked under his arm. Playing football and baseball for the plebe team, he established himself as one of our most versatile performers. He later settled down to varsity football, and continually thrilled the Brigade with his fantastic runs from the halfback position. Ron met with the same success in academics, as they proved to be no obstacle for him. It was somewhat of a lift to talk with Ron, for he always had a cheerful word, even during those long " dark ages. " Ron hopes to move on to Pensacola after graduation. PEMAQl ID POINT HARRY WAYNE BRANSON, JR. San Angelo, Texas Born in Norwalk, Connecticut, Harry soon realized his error, moved to the Lone Star State, and then proceeded to Navy armed with a copy of Texas Brags. Harry was one of those rare guys who can swallow the academic routine here at Navy and, without a strain, still have time to star in such extracurricular activities as gym and WRNV. He constantly amazed his classmates by showing up with a different girl for every occasion. His tastes in music were positively on the semiclassical side. A typical Texan, he modestly attributed his success to experience gained in the plains of Texas, and hopes for a career in Naval Aviation, where we, his classmates, confidently expect him to earn the reputation of a San Angelo boy who made good. 88 SECOND WILLIAM BRINGHURST, JR. Chappaqua, New York Home, to Bill, is Chappaqua, a small town in the hills of northern Westchester County, New York. Since his early days in high school he planned to come to Navy. When he finally made it, he found plebe year quite different from the carefree college days at Tufts University, where he studied engineering for a year. As well as maintaining better than average marks, Bill was active in plebe foot- ball, varsity lacrosse, and was a member of one of the Fourth Bat- talion ' s championship football teams. His ambition is to fly the fastest thing the Navy has, and we all wish him the best of luck, and happy landing. CLAUDIUS JAMES BRITELL San Rafael, California Jim embarked on his four years at the Academy after a year of preparation at Sullivan ' s Prep in Washington, D. C. He calls Whitefish, Montana, his home town, although he was an Army brat and lived there only a very short time. While at the Academy Jim applied himself diligently to the academics, and participated actively in intramural sports, his preference being handball and brigade boxing. He was also an avid supporter of Navy intercollegiate sports, as a certain Dartmouth student learned rather vividly. Jim ' s favorite pastime, besides sleeping, was cluttering up the rooms with his clothes after classes and on weekends. His loyalty and desire to succeed will serve him well in the Marine Corps. error WILLIAM EDWARD CALLAWAY, JR. Columbia, South Carolina Bill came to Navy from Columbia, after a year of prepping at nearby Columbian Prep. Never having any trouble with the aca- demic departments, Bill had plenty of time for his international collec- tion of femmes and his search for a good party. After starting with the plebe football team, he settled down with the intramural squads, where his natural athletic ability and enthusiasm were a great asset. His love of flying will make him a natural for Navy Air, and his only worry seems to be how he is going to fit those long legs into the narrow confines of a jet cockpit. BATTALION 89 JOHN OTTO CARLSON eon, Iowa After a year at Iowa State University, which he insisted was a happy one, " Joe " was sworn in as a Midshipman. The casual mid- westerner loped through his Academy years standing well in the upper half of his class. " Joe " is probably best known for his many hours of able bridge playing, prolific letter writing and other study-avoiding endeavors. Never one to sweat the system, " Joe " kept his warm sense of humor continually, and easily accumulated many friends throughout the Brigade. " Joe ' s " easy-going manner and warm per- sonality will long be remembered. JOHN DONALD CARPENTER, JR. Milford, Ohio Jack came to us from the land of the Buckeyes, where he called Milford home. Continuing in his interests from high school days, you could always find him on the basketball court or the football field, where he was always adding a word of encouragement to his team- mates. Always game for a hand of bridge or a party, Jack soon be- came one of the most likeable men in the Company. As a member of the hop committee and chairman of the ring dance, Jack soon proved to his classmates that he could do the job and do it well. Navy Air has most certainly gained an officer who will be a welcome addition to any squadron. PETER GORDON CHABOT Meriden, Connecticut The " Little Bear " came directly from high school in Meriden, Connecticut. In his four years on the Severn he has been a mainstay on the battalion football team, active in extracurricular activities, and a star man academically. His intelligence, his athletic ability, and his personality, as well as those other qualities J. P. Jones requires of a Naval Officer, immediately won him the respect of his classmates. Thus he became one of the most popular members of his class. His outstanding characteristic has been his dependability. When assigned a task, he has always accomplished it efficiently. This trait, plus his infinite coffee capacity, will make him a welcome addition to the wardroom of any submarine. 90 SECOND JOHN HENRY CHENARD Bucksport, Maine John came to the Naval Academy from the rock-bound coast of Maine, and has proved himself to be a valuable asset to the Fourteenth Company. Since John never had any trouble with aca- demics here at the Academy, he had ample time for extracurricular activities. He devoted most of his time to the Newman Club, the Brigade Public Relations Committee, and the Fourth Battalion and Fourteenth Company football teams. His willingness to give his all for these teams is certainly in evidence by looking at his nose, which has suffered gravely from his football experiences. Also, having been gifted with a great sense of humor, John was usually the instigator of many of our happier moments during these past four years. This trait, combined with his desire to do well in all that he undertakes, should make him a welcome addition to the fleet in the future. JERRY ALBERT COOPER Z anesviiie, Ohi One of Ohio ' s own, Jerry came from west of the Alleghenies to the Chesapeake shore in pursuit of higher education in naval science. An avid claimant of the " Silent Service, " " Coop " looks forward to a submarine future, having made it into a hobby. However, in spite of the fact that his grades were well above average, Jerry certainly contributed his share toward the glorification of the Blue and Gold. On the football field in the Fall, the return of white works found him far out on the Chesapeake in command of the Highland Light, aiming toward victory on the high seas. This familiarity with the sea, and respect for hard work, certainly served Jerry well toward becoming an outstanding naval officer. Hj ROBERT ALFRED CORRELL Davenport, Iowa Bob claims Davenport, Iowa, as his home town. He is a graduate of Balboa High School in the Canal Zone. As a wearer of the green he attained the rank of Corporal, and came to us with good qualifications. His concentrated effort has been on academics, but he found time to be one of the outstanding performers in intramural sports. Like everyone else, he had his troubles with the books, but he made it. He is a party boy, but he prefers his women in singles rather than crowds. We think the Navy is getting a good man in Bob. BATTALION 91 ROBERT DAVIDSON CORRELL Ann Arbor, Michigan Bob came to USNA from Ann Arbor, Michigan. While at the Academy he distinguished himself in a number of ways. As captain of the plebe football team he was their leading halfback, going on to play three years for the varsity. Active in class activities, he was Vice-President of the class and served on the class honor committee. Singing also interested him, so he became a member of the chapel choir. All these activities did not bother him academically, as he was a star man. Bobs friendly manner and tremendous drive are certain to lead him to success, whatever he decides to do after graduation. We of the Fourteenth wish him smooth sailing and the best of luck. JOHN PAUL COTIS Bronx, New York City, New York John, sometimes affectionately called the " Golden Greek, " came to the Academy with quite an interesting and varied background. While here, he continued to exploit his many attributes, helping to make those hard times at the Academy easy to accept. His never ending humor, as well as his Latin American dancing, will always be remembered by us all, for John had the wonderful ability to radiate cheer wherever he went. John ' s exceptional popularity seemed to exemplify this. LAWRENCE VAL COVINGTON St. Louis, Missouri Larry arrived at Navy with an outstanding asset, a gift of gab, which he has used ever since. He really took to this military stuff, being as he had just completed four rough years at a military high school. He was probably the only plebe to go through plebe year without saying " I ' ll find out, sir, " he always had an answer. Larr could solve any problem except one, that being women. He was always being chased by at least four. 92 SECOND ■ BOBBY WAYNE COX Stamford, Texas Bobby came to the Naval Academy from Stamford, Texas, via one year at Arlington State Junior College. Although he could have stood higher in his class, Bobby, never one to overwork himself in his studies, preferred to spend a great deal of time writing letters or racking out. Highlighting his extracurricular activities were his four years as a member of the Antiphonal Choir. An active participant in intramural sports, Bobby specialized in battalion handball, and was a shotputter on the battalion track team. Bobby was known for his ability to meet any situation, no matter how hopeless it seemed, and undoubtedly this characteristic will contribute to his success during his career as a naval officer. CHARLES JOHN COX Primrose, Pennsylvania Pennsylvania lost an asset to her industry when Charley traded his miner ' s helmet for the Blue and Gold. He brought with him a battered old guitar and a never ending supply of good humor. Charley was always ready to lend a hand to anyone who asked. Academics were never any problem, and outside the classroom he could usually be found hard at work on the gridiron or in the wrestling loft. Charley ' s keen sense of fair play will make him an outstanding leader in the " Silent Service. " I CHARLES SAMUEL DELLA PERUTA Bound Brook, New Jersey Charlie, as he is better known to his classmates, hails from Bound Brook, New Jersey, where he was an outstanding wrestler. Carrying this ability to the Academy, he wrestled on the plebe, battalion, and varsity teams, scoring many a victory. Having previously had two semesters at Maryland University and one at Rutgers, Charlie was pretty well set for academics at the Academy. Leave always could find him heading for home, as liberty call never slipped by this " good time Charlie. " For the future, Charlie plans to make flying his goal, and if interest is any part of success, there ' s no doubt that he will be the best. Good luck and success to a proud product of the class of I960. BATTALION 93 ANGELO ERMINIO DIFILIPPO Lorain, Ohio When Anqelo walked through the gates of USNA, he found life here quite different from that of the town of Lorain. " Flip " lost his grief in a deck of cards, and when everyone else was clacking slide rules, " Flip " was caressing those fifty-two harbingers of evil. He always seemed to have a book in his hands, but it was more often Goren on Bridge than math or skinny. When " Flip " wasn ' t participat- ing in the local bridge tournament, he was doing a standout job for the company fieldball team. A big competitor, " Flip " is certain to be a success in any field he chooses. JOHN VIRGIL DIRKSEN Gresham, Oregon Out of the rain forests of Oregon Dirk came to the Naval Academy only to find he had stepped out of the frying pan into the fire. But never one to let a minor thing such as constant precipitation dampen his spirits, he was always ready with a quick comeback to anybody ' s quip. John spent a year at the foot of the enemy ' s camp, at Braden ' s Prep School in Cornwall-on-Hudson, before coming to Navy. Plebe year ' s spare time was spent on Upper Lawrence behind a first baseman ' s mitt, but his interests later shifted to quiet after- noons on the bay as skipper of a YP in the Power Squadron. This experience will be well used as he steps aboard that " can " after graduation. If all goes well, it ' s " New London, here I come! " THOMAS MICHAEL DONAHUE Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Tom, a graduate of Mt. Lebanon High, came to the Academy on a congressional appointment. He still insists, however, that he was just another tourist in the yard, when the powers that be suddenly discovered that the class quota hadn ' t been filled. Tom soon found that math was to be his major academic foe, but he simply put his head down and continued to fight on. Football and dragging were two of his greatest weaknesses, and he was never one to pass up a chance to take liberty and get away from the system. A pleasant personality and good sense of judgement are two of his many at- tributes, which should lead to a successful service career. 94 SECOND t i JOHN WALDEN DURHAM McKeesport, Pennsylvania John W. Durham came to the Naval Academy from McKees- port, Pennsylvania. " Bull " brought with him a wealth of baseball statistics. Never much for the ladies, he spent most of his time playing battalion football, listening to the Steeler ' s games, occasionally hitting the books, and always figuring out how long it would take him to get to McKeesport. Easygoing " Bull " never let life in Bancroft get the best of him. His subtle humor kept his wives and classmates in high spirits. These same qualities that made him so enjoyable at the Academy should add to a very successful Navy Line career. ROBERT MOORE ELDRIDGE East Longmeadow, Massachusetts Four years ago, Bob arrived from the backwoods of East Longmeadow, Massachusetts, with his supply of King ' s English, and has ever since been endeavoring to show everyone else how our language should be spoken. He has worked hard on extracurricular activities, academics, and even harder on keeping that little black book swollen with names from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to Scarsdale, New York, to Oxford, Ohio. Many a bleak morning we mids were greeted by his cheery, if a little groggy, voice booming out like a foghorn over the air waves from WRNV, the Voice of the Brigade of Midshipmen, and his DJ shows from Radio Free Bancroft are known by many. One can easily identify the profession for which Bob is aiming by looking at the unique submarine tie clasp located in the obvious place beneath his blue service. JAMES FRANCIS FITZGERALD Naugatuck, Connecticut " Fitz " deserted the joys of college life, after one year at the University of Connecticut, to come to Navy. Youngster cruise on a " tin-can " made him susceptible to the Navy ' s air arm, and after aviation summer he was a confirmed bird man. While here he par- ticipated in the company sports program. In the fall it was soccer, in the winter fieldball, and every spring he could be found with mitt on hand, throwing a Softball. Although " Fitz " didn ' t get along too well with the professors at Navy, academically speaking, in some circles he is considered a teacher ' s pet. BATTALION 95 DONALD SHAW FREEMAN Des Moines, Iowa Quiet and sincere— this is Butch. Yet, a good man to have at a party and even better to have in a touch football game. A student; he wore stars. All these things are combined in this lad frorn Des Moines, Iowa. Butch had always wanted to come to the Academy, and even tried to do so after his junior year in high school. However, the math part of the exam was a bit too much for him at that time. The second time around was " no sweat, " and soon he was being sworn in. The four years on the Severn went by quickly, and before he knew it he was throwing pennies at Tecumseh for the last time. After graduation, who knows? Success is assured in whatever he decides upon. Another thing is certain— this is one man who won ' t soon be forgotten by those who knew him. MELVIN ALLEN FULKERSON Minneapolis, Minnesota One of Minnesota ' s better contributions to the Naval Service is Al (Magoo) Fulkerson. Al, a native of the Golden Gopher State, is a ' 55 graduate of West High in Minneapolis. Before coming to the Naval Academy, Al attended Northwestern Preparatory School. Blondes and sports cars are Al ' s two greatest weaknesses. Always a big hit with the fair sex, he could often be found on weekends dragging some sweet young thing. The Supply Corps will be getting a very dedicated and high-calibered man. A most rewarding Naval career lies ahead for Al. PHILLIP EUGENE GARDNER Alexandria, Virginia It might be said that Gene rowed his way into the Naval Academy. From a high school championship crew he stepped right into the Naval Academy program and took an active part in crew for four years. Off the water activity found Gene engaged in the com- pany squash competition. It was typical of " Phillsey " to take a sincere interest in, and devote a lot of attention to, his chosen activities. Gene was easy going, and his sharp sense of humor made him an amusing companion. A true gentleman of the old South, Gene is headed for the Marine Corps, and the achievement of the goal that brought him to the Academy. 96 SECOND JOHN JOSEPH GARRITY, JR. Topsfield, Massachusetts After a long tour of Academies both at Northeastern and Navy, " Ubah " is prepared to join the fleet. His intellectual prowess has enabled him to stand near the top of his class as well as aid many a struggling classmate with the studies. His cheerful attitude and the ever present right words have won him many friends. Posses- sing the qualities which are beneficial to a good officer, John looks forward to a successful military career. . ...... WILLIAM MORAN GILLESPIE Houston, Texas William Moran Gillespie comes from the second largest state in the union. He was born in Houston, Texas, September 15, 1937, and came to the Academy after two years at Texas A M. He played football at A M and was also a standout fullback on the plebe team. Bill has been known for his promptness, for he has never been late at the Academy. Ever since second class summer, when he first took the controls of an airplane, he has planned a career in Naval Aviation. Bill is definitely a man of the future, for he is always looking ahead. To his many friends he will be remembered for his vast knowl- edge of football and women. JAMES ROBERT LATHAM GILSTRAP Ruxton, Maryland " Strap " came to us via Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, as have many other illustrious Academy graduates, including his brother John, who graduated with that well remembered class of 1957. Well known for his weakness for the opposite sex, Strap could usually be seen dragging some cute little dolly on weekends, in that bustling metrop- olis of Crabtown, where something exciting was always happening. Although he wasn ' t particularly fond of academics, and had to really slug it out with most of them, he finally made it! Number one on his pet peeve list was P-rades, and could he gripe about them! He could always be heard saying, " If I ever become Superintendent . . . " We all wish " Strap " the best of luck in whatever he chooses to do, and a hearty " Bon Voyage. " BATTALION 97 THOMAS CHARLES GLEW Cleveland, Ohio " All roads led to Cleveland, " thought Tom, who was always there whenever we had more than thirty-six hours leave. Believing that there is nothing like getting an early start, Tom came straight from high school, and is one of the youngest members of our class. An avid jazz enthusiast, Tom never had any trouble with the books, and en- gaged actively in sports. A man of extreme patience and a warm personality, he was popular with everyone. Tom ' s eyes prevent him from pursuing his chief ambition, flying, but whatever he does will be done well. MERLE WAYNE GORMAN Gettysburg, Pennsylvania From Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and proud of it, Jim came to the Academy bestowed with an enviable versatility. Sportswise, Jim started with plebe football, broad-jumped, played JV soccer, and added to this a little company volleyball, heavyweight football, and Softball. Off the athletic field his talents were no less, for he was a capable student as well as Sports Editor for the I960 Lucky Bag. Jim ' s sphere of influence, however, was not limited to the prescribed seven miles. He was a lover of music, preferably music with a beat, women, and parties, where he could always be found by looking for the escort of the best looking girl in the place. It looks as though they ' ll have another good man, a man of character, when Jim dons the Marine green. JON HARMON GRAF Milwaukee, Wisconsin Jon was born in Milwaukee, and came to the Academy directly from high school. Although Jon ' s academic standing is not the best, he has done very well in all of his courses at the Academy. Jon has only one outside interest, excluding girls, and this is track. He has been on the varsity and plebe teams during his entire four years. During the off seasons, he was found working out, to keep in shape for the track season. His choice of service is Navy Line. 98 SECOND RALPH SHIPLEY HAGELBARGER Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio A man of musical and academic talents, Ralph entered the Naval Academy after graduation from Cuyahoga Falls High School. His main athletic interest proved to be golf, in which he excelled. Undaunted by the rigors of plebe year, he sailed to the successful conclusion of his voyage at USNAY. Playing the cello and lending his voice to the Chapel Choir afforded him an outlet from academics, while furthering his musical ability. Wherever Ralph went, his warm, friendly smile was sure to tag along. Ralph ' s lot in future life appears to coincide with that of the Destroyer Navy, where his fine qualities will be a welcome asset. I ■kftl JAMES EVERETT HANCOCK Terre Haute, Indiana Jimmy, the Terre Haute Flash, came to us after two years of distinguished service in the Marine Corps. Plebe year found Jim over in MacDonough Hall giving his all for the plebe gymnastics team. Since then he has switched his talents to the classroom and the intra- mural field. After conquering the Dago department, Jim has had a pretty easy time with the academics. On a weekend he was often found out on the bay, putting the Freedom through her paces. The future will find Jim donning the Marine Corps green. We are sure that Jim ' s drive will carry him right to the top. ROBERT RYLAND HARLAN Birmingham, Alabama Rob came to us from the deep South, after a brief period at Birmingham Southern College. In high school, Rob was both a winner in the classroom and on the tennis courts. Returning to his habits at USNA, he played a season of plebe tennis before retiring to bul- wark the battalion team, taking time out in the fall to head the Thirteenth ' s squash squad. Holding his own on the slide rule circuit, Rob was one of those fortunate ones selected for the advanced science seminar. Whether in Green or Blue, on the courts or off, Rob will obviously continue to excel in the years ahead. BATTALION 99 Coffeyvi L : u LOUIS WAYNE HEACOCK Kansas a landlubber from the Middle West, whose greatest ambition was to wear the Navy wings of gold. Arriving at USNA, he it life was led at a considerably faster pace than in Kansas, and, consequently, he spent a rather hectic first year. Having survived the rigors of plebe year and youngster cruise, Lou was equipped with all the necessary nautical lore to call himself a true Navy man, and the succeeding years as an upperclassman had only an occasional unpleasant encounter with the Bull department to cloud the horizon. Lou ' s quiet determination and will to work have assured him of the admiration of his classmates, and assure him a rewarding career in the service of his country. THOMAS ARTHUR HEAD Arlington, Virginia Tom is a well traveled Navy Junior who has really been around, but he claims Arlington, Virginia, as his home. An accomplished uke player and music lover, this lad could always be found where fun was being had. He possesses a tremendous personality and was a favorite of all his classmates. Battalion and company sports teams benefited greatly by his enthusiastic participation, as he was a sports fan and a fine competitor. The imitating of wild animals was one of Tom ' s special talents. Tom will follow in his father ' s footsteps and become a Naval Aviator, and is sure to carry on in the same fine tradition, for his qualifications are many. NATHAN ALBERT HEUBERGER Mattapoisett, Massachusetts Nate was born on 14 January, 1938, in the city of New Bed- ford, Massachusetts. His entire childhood was spent in the small town of Mattapoisett, six miles from his birthplace. For his primary educa- tion, he attended Mattapoisett Center School for nine years. His three years of secondary schooling was obtained at Fairhaven High School. From high school, Nate came straight to the Academy. As a plebe, he was active in battalion crew and track, as well as company football. Youngster year, he played with the battalion football and water-polo teams. He was also a member of the Antiphonal Choir and String Ensemble. After graduation, Nate ' s preference is good old Navy Line. 100 SECOND i RONALD WILLIAM HINKEL Reading, Pennsylvania " Hink " was Reading, Pennsylvania ' s, representative to the Acad- emy and the Class of I960, and a fine representative he was. A hard charger in the classroom, as well as on the football field and the wrestling mat, Ron competed in plebe football, plebe wrestling, varsity football, wrestling, and 150-pound football. Always the life of the party, " Hink ' ' could be found searching for fun, be he in Rio, New Orleans, Newport, or Annapolis. Second class summer impressed him, and Navy Air will lay claim to him after graduation. We all wish him good luck and a profitable future. THOMAS BEEKMAN HOPPIN Cold Spring Harbor, New York From his home on Long Island, Tom came to the Academy by way of Milton Academy in Massachusetts. Learning to sail on Long Island Sound, he found it an easy transition to Chesapeake Bay. Sailing dinghies plebe year, he switched to the yawls, and was on the ocean racing team. He found time to play plebe soccer, and to help the company field ball team during the winter season. A person who likes music, Tom used his talents and sang in the Choir and Glee Club. Always enjoying to work with people, we are sure Tom will go far in his choice of Navy Line. JAMES CLARENCE HOUSEHOLDER Milo, Missouri Hailing from Milo, Missouri, Jim entered the Naval Academy after two years at Southwest Missouri State College. A natural athlete, Jim found little difficulty in playing on any intramural team of his choice, but his favorite was company basketball. His athletic ability was overshadowed only by his scholastic ability, with which he maintained his star average. Foremost in his extracurricular activi- ties were serving on the Honor Committee and singing in the Chapel Choir. His jokes and stories of the Ozarks, in his well known Missouri drawl, provided many hours of enjoyment for his classmates. COND BATTALION 101 JAMES RICHARD HOWARD Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania Jimmy put the cows in the barn and hung up his pitchfork four years ago, and embarked on his naval career. Previous schooling at Stroudsburg State Teachers lent a hand to his early academics, but the math department was always there trying to take Jim ' s 2,5 from him. Rifle, fieldball and varsity dinghy sailing occupied the afternoon sports hours, while a few club activities filled the spare evenings. Pensacola and those Navy wings of gold changed Jim during the past two years, for he ' s changed from a staunch advocate of Navy Line to a Navy flier. ROBERT JOSEPH IANUCCI Waterbury, Connecticut After spending a year enjoying the gay college atmosphere at Fairfield U., Bob came to Canoe U. intent on continuing his good fortunes here. The rigors of " Ploob " year did little to dim his always friendly smile. His contagious good humor affected all, especially at those 5 A.M. reveille parties. Academically, " Nucci " contended that " skinny " was mastered by magicians only, but he always seemed to do a little better than he had expected. Athletically, he was a com- bination of fish in water, and bird in the vaulting pit. What time remained, he devoted to the Newman Club and Reception Com- mittee. Bob ' s accomplishments at Navy were many — flat tire and dead battery in whites at 2:00 A.M., letters with upside down stamps, and falling from the top of his triple rack. With his sunny smile and common sense, the Navy will have one more destroyer in capable hands. Alexander, New RAYMOND PAUL ILG York Although Paul came to the Naval Academy right after gradua- tion from high school, he adopted the Navy way of life easily. He was valedictorian of his high school class and thus had no troubles with academics, leaving many spare moments for wrestling. During the off seasons of wrestling he led the battalion soccer teams to victory. His only complaint was the fact that gym and wrestling both had the same seasons. Paul was well liked by all of his classmates, and by everyone who came in contact with him; this latter group con- taining a multitude of women. 102 SECOND JOSEPH DAVIES JAAP Washington, D. C. Born as a Navy junior, Joe ' s one ambition was to attend the Academy. He arrived here via St. John ' s College High School and Columbian Prep. Joe was a good guy to know, always willing to help, whether it be with studies or with any other problem that turned up. " Vangooch, " as he was popularly known, was a little on the quiet side, but he always accomplished what he set out to do. He always had an eye for the cute girls and a technique to go with it. Joe ' s favorite topic of conversation, outside of girls, was submarines. As life passes on, Joe will always be near the top. V; te yv ROBERT SIDNEY JONES Gallatin, Tennessee Sid hails from a state claimed by the Confederacy and later by the U. S., namely Tennessee. He joined the Brigade of Midshipmen upon graduating from Gallatin High School. He was active in intra- mural sports and served on various committees, but still found time for his favorite weekend sport of dragging. A winner at heart, he has never been known to turn down a good game of Hearts, or a relaxing afternoon of canoeing. Sid ' s natural ability of finding room in crowded places will make the submarine service his home away from home. Sid ' s personality, and desire to do his best, will make him a success in whatever he undertakes. SALIM JOSEPH KANAKRY Brooklyn, New York Sam came to Navy from his hometown of Brooklyn, New York, after two years at St. John ' s in Brooklyn. Due to his previous studies in college, Sam was one of the more fortunate. He had no trouble with academics, and was able to devote his leisure time to extra- curricular activities, intramural sports, and the rack. Women never seemed to pose a problem, as he was able to find them even in the most remote regions of his travels. If Sam ever goes on trial, they will convict him of only three things: his blind dates, his craving for wild music, and his inability to decide who was his One-and-Only. BATTALION 103 ■I CHARLES ROGER KHOURY, JR. Rocky River, Ohio The " Butch-Kid " brought to the Navy the innocence and enthusiasm of youth. Butch accepted the burden of being the youngest man in the class with dignity, and when he wasn ' t extricating himself from trouble, he could be found chugging around Thompson Stadium " getting in shape. " He was the only Mid who could put an inch on his arms by just looking at a 100-pound barbell for two hours. Through it all, Butch is one of the few who has managed to retain the en- thusiasm with which he started out, and he should certainly go on to make a fine career of the Navy. ROBERT ANTHONY KRESE Westland, Pennsylvania Kicking the coal dust from his spikes and bringing his love to run with him, Bob contributed much to the success of the cross country and track teams during his plebe year. Youngster year found him involved in this same endeavor, with some company football thrown in for variety. Having no difficulty with academics, except for an occasional " Dago " final, Bob found plenty of time for the Newman Club, writing his one-and-only, and listening to his many varieties of mood music. After second class summer, another love had been added to Bob ' s life — that of Navy Air. His conscientiousness, determination, and leadership abilities should mark Bob as an ex- cellent Naval officer and " jet jockey. " GEORGE PETER KROYER Walworth, Wisconsin After completing two years of engineering courses at Milton College, Pete decided upon a career in Naval Aviation via the Naval Academy. At Navy Pete found the academics were no challenge, due to his well developed background in science. His high academic standing was limited as he was " one of the boys " and a lover of parties. A real competitor, Pete was a rugged man on the soccer field and 150-pound gridiron. This amiable and refined Chicago rogue will have much to offer to Navy Air starting this fall. 104 SECOND I ALAN HENLEY KRULISCH Mineola, New York While here at his beloved home away from home Al made a collection of nicknames. Since they are part of his life at USNA, they should be recorded for posterity. They are: " Great Ace, " " Big Ski Gonlash, " and " The Flower of Mineola. " Al was potentially a great dragger, but his motto got in his way. This famous motto was, " I can ' t be bothered. " His wit continually kept his friends amused, and his knowledge kept his " wives " in school. Al was never too busy to lend a helping hand to anyone who had trouble with his studies. His future appears bright. for the ALAN EUGENE LANSDOWNE San Pedro, California The " Fisherman " hails from the home of " Moaning Maggie. " Between tales of abalone fishing and Naval Aviation, Al could usually be found on the excused squad or in the local hospital, thanks to his never ending trials on the JV gridiron. Known affectionately as " the dealer, " Al was always on hand with a solution to any problem. An ardent student, Al found little trouble with the academic grind. Pensacola waits with arms spread wide for this potential multi-engined fly boy. k PEYTON RANDOLPH LATIMER Alexandria, Virginia Whenever Pete disclosed his hometown of Alexandria, Virginia, everyone guessed, and correctly so, that he was a Navy junior. As a plebe he was first introduced to squash, to which he quickly adapted his tennis playing talents, enabling him to win his " N " as a youngster. He was equally adept with a slide rule, and was even noticed carrying his slipstick to " Dago. " Pete was no stranger to the Superintendent ' s List either. Youngster year he proved that academic achievement varies inversely with the square of the rack time. Although a consistent dragger, none of the opposite sex have managed to get a firm hold yet. It goes without saying that Pete ' s naval career will reflect his success here at the Academy. •OND BATTALION 105 JOHN FRANCIS LEAHY III Spokane, Washington To most of the Brigade, John, the Irishman, was a carefree, easy-going party-boy, but to those who knew him well, he was a serious minded individual who held steadfastly to his convictions. He had the natural ability for separating the trivial from the important. Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, helped prepare John for his role as an organizer of men. Always willing to lend a helping hand, John pulled many of his classmates through the first year of non- dragging by knowing local girls. During his four years at Navy this smiling Irishman was the key figure in many bull sessions and card games. John looks for a future in Naval Aviation. MICHAEL JAMES LEES Long Beach, California Mike was born on the island of Oahu and, being the son of a Naval Officer, has lived on both coasts of the United States. Coming to USNA after a year at the University of California, Mike has made quite a record. He has been a member of the French Club, Varsity track team, and has spent many long hours as biography editor of the I960 Lucky Bag. Mike has always shown a sincere attitude and, with such a trait, will certainly benefit the Naval service. Terre Haute, PEMAQUID POINT GIRARD THOMAS LEW Indiana Gary came to the Naval Academy, at the ripe old age of nineteen, from Terre Haute, Indiana, with one year at Rose Polytechnic Institute behind him. He immediately proved his worth in academics by starring, and his musical talents in Catholic Choir. His height and experience also added greatly to the company ' s basketball and volley- ball teams. His great love, other than dragging, is flying the model planes he builds in the lower reaches of the fourth wing basement. This love of flying is reflected in his choice of duty. Gary wants to earn his wings of gold in Navy Air. 106 SECOND ■ b HARRY COLSON LEWIS Claremont, New Hampshire Harry came to the Academy from Valley Forge Military Academy, where he was graduated valedictorian of his class. During his four years at Navy, he kept up his academic record while also giving up time to extracurricular activities: the Drum and Bugle Corps and the Concert Band. His main sporting interests centered around tennis and golf while at the Academy, but during Christmas leaves, his pastime was skiing at the resorts of New Hampshire and Vermont. After graduation, " Charlie Chaplin " intends to go to sub school. He has his plans all made out, so if he ' s as determined to make them come true as he has done in the past, he ' ll have a very rewarding career in the Navy. JAMES WILLIAM LITTLEFIELD Sackets Harbor, New York Jim journeyed to Canoe U. from far upstate on Lake Ontario. In high school, in addition to being valedictorian and president of his class, Jim captained baseball and basketball, while calling signals in football. At USNA Jim played a year at end on the I50 ' s, before answering a more urgent call to the books. Holding down the infield on the company regimental Softball champs, Jim proved a welcome addition to intramurals. Always quiet and reserved, Jim looks forward to a career in Naval Aviation. With the same spirit that has made him a winner on the Severn, we know Jim will be successful on the ground or in the air. ALEXANDER SCOTT LOGAN Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Alex was a likable, easy-going guy who always had a cheery greeting for any and everyone. A slash, he was consistently on the Superintendent ' s List. Alex ' s main weakness was a pretty face and he was always one to give the girls a thrill. During his spare moments Alex put in a lot of time on extracurricular activities, being on the Lucky Bag, in the Antiphonal Choir, and in the Gun Club. As an athlete, he was an ardent member of the battalion golf team, plus giving his company many fine performances in 150-pound football. Alex ' s ability and ambition will take him far in whatever direction he chooses to go. BATTALION 107 DAVID LIVINGSTON LOWRY Williamstown, Massachusetts " Pancho " came to the Academy with a diversified background, which included inherent characteristics of a New Englander: a year in the Ivy League, a stint in the Army, and a desire to go into medicine. He could never adequately explain the correlation between medicine and the bounding main. Dave was a versatile contributor to the Academy ' s success in athletics, playing both varsity tennis and squash for three years. Inclined to take life as seriously as he took to the books, his smile and good humor made a place for " the good Christian. " JOHN MAYNARD LUSIGNAN Lake Geneva, Wisconsin Jack came to Navy all the way from Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, the garden spot of the world. " Lucy, " as he is known to all of us, was always the fellow to see when the going got tough. With a big smile and a bigger heart, he won many lasting friends at Navy. Besides playing basketball and bowling, he could always find time to listen to his collection of records on his famous hi-fi, which he built himself. Between studies, Lucy ' s sense of humor was always available to anyone. Always ready for a chuckle, he was undoubtedly one of the most liked men in the class. CHARLES LEIDIG LYNCH Glassboro, New Jersey Charlie hails from up Jersey way. A graduate of Glassboro High School, he played football and basketball. He left a comfortable life at home and followed the footsteps of his brother by donning the Navy blue. An exceptional athlete, he concentrated his efforts on lacrosse and company sports. Charlie and the academic departments had their differ ences, but he managed to hold the upper hand most of the time. Charlie holds claim to being one of the party boys of the class, leaving behind many unforgettable memories of good times. His preference is the Marine Corps, and he will be one of the best we send them. 108 SECOND Columbus KENNETH LOGAN MacLEOD Ohio With a perpetual smile, Ken has been a welcome member to any and all groups. Although originally from Columbus, Ohio, by being a Navy junior he has moved about a good deal. In athletics, fall seasons have found him out for plebe and varsity cross-country, while winters and springs have been devoted to plebe and varsity track teams. His other interests lie in fishing, dancing, and psy- chology. Ken s present intention is to go subs and, without a doubt, he will be a great asset to the Silent Service. WILLIAM SQUIRES MANNING Norfolk, Virginia Bill came to the Academy immediately after graduation from high school in Norfolk, Virginia. Home for Bill has always been where his father, a Navy mustang, was stationed. With a deep respect and understanding of Navy life, Bill quickly adapted to the highs and lows of Naval Academy routine. Bill played plebe tennis and squash, and followed that up with three years of each of the varsity racquet sports, being elected captain of the squash team his last year. He was a good academic student, and particularly enjoyed the profes- sional aspects of regular and extracurricular activities. Bill was al- ways straightforward, kind, and eager to extend a helping hand: traits of character which brought him respect and admiration from everyone who crossed his path. As graduation bells are ringing, Bill is looking forward to a successful career in the Navy. how5S DAVID RUSSELL MARQUIS Haverhill, Massachusetts " Moon " left the land where people " pak their cahs " for Bullis Prep, and then later the Naval Academy, through the courtesy of the Naval Reserve. They didn ' t come any better than " Moon, " as any of his friends would tell you. The books didn ' t present any problem to him; he conquered them with ease as he did with any- thing else he put his mind to. Liberty was always more enjoyable with him along to liven things up with a lot of laughs. A man who knew what he wanted, he could always see the humorous side of life. His determination and friendliness impressed all who met him. BATTALION 109 FREDRICK GLEN MARSH Kellogg, Iowa Fred went directly to the University of Iowa from high school and, after two years of college, enlisted in the Navy. After a year and a half in the Navy, he came to the Naval Academy. He never said very much, but made his presence known by playing company soccer and basketball, and winning his first N star in varsity baseball during youngster year. Although quiet, he is never at a loss when called upon to demonstrate his prowess with the fair sex. When asked about his marital intentions he can usually be heard to say, " At present I ' m enjoying life too much for anything like that. " DAVID MAYERS, JR. Riverside, California Military life has been Dave ' s first love. After serving his stretch as a sergeant in the Marine Corps, Dave decided to further his education at USNA. After his four years at the Academy, during which time he has been among the top scholastically, Dave plans on returning to that toughest branch of military life. During his second class annual leave, Dave, with five of his classmates, entered Airborne School and received his jump wings. An ardent athlete, participating in tennis and handball, Dave has helped his battalion in many vic- tories. The Marines will receive a good man when Dave enters Quantico this coming fall. ROBERT STUART McAFEE Portsmouth, New Hampshire Bob, one of those fortunate nomads called Navy juniors, came to USNAY from Lansdowne, Pennsylvania. Actually, he was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, but California is his favorite state (be- cause of the species of femmes encountered there). A great organizer, Bob was forever recruiting drags for his friends and throwing post football game parties that were smashing successes. Although a shoulder injury, sustained plebe summer, curtailed the possibility of any varsity sports, it did not keep him from participating in company and battalion competition. Bob is Navy to the core, and aspires to concentrate his future in the " Silent Service. " no SECOND I )an hrancisco, JIMMY HURST McCOY California Jim arrived at the Academy after distinguishing himself for one year at the University of California at Berkeley. This gave him an advantage in his academics, with the notable exception of plebe steam. Being a Navy junior, Jim was something of a world traveller, and was always ready to talk about Japan, Hawaii, or his favorite home town, San Francisco. Jim did well in academics as an upper- classman, particularly in dago and bull. He was always known to be squared away, and ready to assume any task with responsibility and determination. Dedicated to a career in the Navy, he will be wel- comed aboard wherever he goes. -. [luring MICHAEL STUART McCULLOUGH Arlington, Virginia Coming to us from Arlington, Virginia, Mike is truly a credit to the company. A portion of Mike ' s interests lie in that little house on Dorsey Creek, where he has been an asset to the I 50-pound crew team for these past four years. The remainder of his extracurricular interests have been in the game of double-redouble. Academics came easily to Mike, and he stood in the upper part of the class. Navy Line looks mighty fine and it looks as if Mike will carry on the traditions of his family and be a " tin-can sailor. " Whatever he does, he is certain of success. SAMUEL KERR McKEE III Chatham, New Jersey From the playing fields of Chatham, New Jersey, he came determined to attain All-American fame. With one year at the Uni- versity of Virginia, he was ready to set new scholastic standards, but alas, he failed. Sam merely became an outstanding Midshipman. During these four years, Sam has earned three varsity soccer letters and maintained a high academic average. All work and no play, however, did not make him a dull boy, for should the occasion arise, he could outlast the best at a little beer drinking. As for the future, wherever it leads him, Sam will surely be doing his part for the Navy. BATTALION in DOUGLAS EDWARD McKINLEY Owensboro, Kentucky Doug came to us after a carefree year at Wabash College. Always the easy going Kentuckian, he never sweated the books, but still managed to keep his grades respectable. Doug is best remem- bered by his classmates for his ready wit and ever present grin. Racquet sports were his favorite, and the intramural squash and tennis teams enjoyed his support. Doug and girls always got along well, and he always seemed to have one. A career in the a ir seems to be his destiny, and we know Doug will go along doing well and making friends throughout the service. JAMES RUSSELL McLEAN, JR. Rowland, North Carolina Jim arrived at the Academy immediately after receiving his high school diploma. Untainted by college life, he quickly adapted himself to the routine and, aided in no small measure by the system, began building character. Academics took its share of his time, but never did it interfere with dragging or sleeping. Along with a rich rebel drawl, Jim has retained a strong love for rock and roll music and dancing. Soccer has been his favorite sport at the Academy, and his natural ability added greatly to the success of the battalion and company teams. His frank, but friendly, nature will be a great asset to him in the future. JOHN CHRISTOPHER MENDELIS Baltimore, Maryland John, born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, came to USNAY by way of Baltimore Polytechnic Institute. Upon arriving at the Acad- emy, he found there was no silver lining in that big, black cloud over Bancroft. When not mumbling incantations against the Maryland weather, John spent his time lifting weights to get in shape for the beach. " Flash " Mendelis was a stalwart on the company cross- country and steeplechase teams. The only subject that he didn ' t sweat was P.T. Struggling through academics for four years gave John a fine competitive spirit, which will enable him to reach any goal. 112 SECOND ■ ROBERT ALAN MEYER St. Louis, Missouri Coming right out of high school and lumping into plebe year isn ' t easy, but with Bob ' s wonderful attitude he adjusted himself very quickly to Academy life. The ocean sailing team couldn ' t have gotten along without Bob, and I ' m sure that he couldn ' t have done without them either, for that was his main interest as far as sports were con- cerned while at the Academy. Of course he was also very active in company sports, of which his favorite was soccer. Bob was never one to have to worry about studies in high school, and his four years at USNA were no different. Bob ' s big complaint was that he had too many girls chasing after and writing to him. He didn ' t really mind that, but he could never catch up with his correspondence. WILLIAM JUSTIN MITCHELL Allen, Nebraska Prior to Bill ' s entrance into the Academy, he spent two years at Nebraska Wesleyan University. The rigid routine at the Academy was quite a change for our " frat " man, but it didn ' t take long for Mitch to accustom himself with the country ' s largest fraternity — The Brigade. Here at Navy, Bill has shown outstanding interest in gym- nastics, as a member of the plebe and varsity squads. Though he spent a lot of time with the books, he still found plenty of time to socialize with the gang and listen to his favorite records over the weekends. As for the future, Bill prefers good old Navy Line. DONALD ALLAN MOLLICONE Brooklyn, New York Don came to the Naval Academy from Brooklyn, New York. His typical Brooklyn accent and wit make him a must at a party. Most of his spare time is spent dragging local talent from Crabtown. Don came South with two and a half years experience of college life, making him a well indoctrinated student. As such he managed to squeeze in a little time for card games. As one of the stalwart members of the varsity dinghy sailing team, Don gained valuable experience sailing on the salty Severn. Don plans on a flying career with the U. S. Air Force, along with his brother, a West Point graduate. BATTALION Georgetov DAVID KEITH MOORE Ohio DAVID ROBERT MONTGOMERY Marion, Kansas Dave had no sooner graduated from high school when he found himself gazing upon the friendly face of Mother Bancroft. Ap- parently the transition wasn ' t too great, for Dave managed to pull high grades with a minimum of studying. He was a person who could always find time for playing cards, writing letters, or just horsing around during study hour, no matter how stiff the academics the next day. Golf was Dave ' s favorite sport, but basketball and touch football each occupied a good share of his time. Dave ' s even temper and sense of humor won him many friends, and should prove to be important assets in his future career. " Dint " was the pride of Georgetown, Ohio, before coming to the Academy. Here he quickly became one of the most personable and well-liked men in his company, known to all as " Walrus " or the " Red Ape. " He did not star academically, but never had any trouble getting by. Athletically, his talents ranged from company and bat- talion football to weekend yawl sailing. " Dint " was always game for as many good times as the executive department would allow, and that mid-west bop of his never failed to snow the girls at just about every party. " Dint ' s " all-around ability and personality will make him a very valuable asset to any squadron in the Naval Air arm. DOUGLAS SHERMAN MORGAN Mount Carmel, Pennsylvania Some of us are Navy juniors, some of us came to the Academy from the fleet, but Doug had to be different. He roared in sporting khakis straight from the First Infantry Division, U. S. Army. However, this doggie shifted to blues and fell right into Navy life. He par- ticipated in company activities and sports, after his football career was terminated by a broken hand plebe year. Doug provided the Fifteenth Company with the liveliest polka music this side of the Pennsylvania coal regions, where he was born and raised. He ' ll soon be starting a new career in blues — new, modern Army blue. 114 SECOND JON EDWARD MORRISSEY Kansas City, Kansas Good natured and happy, Jon arrived here from Kansas Uni- versity, and even the life of a Midshipman did not change him. His ability to learn quickly kept him in good stead, and allowed him plenty of time for extracurricular activities and correspondence with those many young ladies who welcomed his letters. Having been a four-letter man in high school, Jon was a natural for the USNA sports program, where he participated in plebe and varsity baseball and several of the intramural sports. Sailing became Jon ' s hobby, and he was amid the genoa and spinnaker at every opportunity. Be- cause of these attributes and his winning attitude, Naval Aviation will gain a valuable pilot. m A DONALD WINSLOW NEWMAN Milwaukee, Oregon This long, lanky, likeable fellow who claims Milwaukie (no, not Wisconsin), Oregon, as his home, is the kind of guy who just couldn ' t have an enemy anywhere, even at USNA. As far as we ' re concerned his name might just as well have been " Herb " as " Don, " because his quick wit and side-splitting humor call to mind immediately those qualities of Herb Shriner. However, Don did have his serious moments once in a while. An avid and well-informed football fan, he showed his versatility in six different company sports, while still finding time to put up a good fight with the academic departments. Don wants to go Navy Air upon graduation. GEORGE DONOGHUE O ' BRIEN Detroit, Michigan George came to the Academy with a happy, sometimes care- free, sometimes quite serious personality, and from the beginning his " no-sweat the system " attitude brought a great number of relaxing laughs. Usually the dominant figure in any bull session, he was always willing to present his views on any subject. His favorites were politics and women. Never studying too much, he amazingly managed to derive a maximum from each of the courses. His ■ extracurricular interests were with the Foreign Relations Club and varsity debate. If in the future he finds enough adventure and enough opportunity for bull sessions, we think " O ' B " will count his future as a great success. All of us who knew George O ' Brien will never forget him. BATTALION 115 JAMES THEODORE O ' FARRELL Portland, Oregon Navy gained a unique individual when Jim arr home port, Portland, Oregon. Apart from keeping amused during the Dark Ages, he lent his talents for season to nearly every available company sport. On a Brigade level, Jim spent all four years as a member of the Catholic Choir. Jim ' s intentions are to go Navy Line, but with all his assets, we are sure he will go far in whatever field he may choose. ed from his his company at least one JOSEPH LEONARD PACE New Rochelle, New York Joe came to us from NAPS, having been in the Navy before entering the Academy. Ever since his plebe year, which he spent terrorizing the first class, this quiet midshipman has added much to the morale of his classmates with his philosophical outlook on life. Joe ' s constant readiness with a helping hand or a good word belied his stern visage. Contrary to the rumor which arose from the sight of his parachutist ' s wings, Joe intends to head for his dolphins, and add his talents to our underwater branch of the Navy. WILLIAM TAYLOR PARLETTE Toledo, Ohio Bill ' s trip from the far end of Lake Erie to the Academy im- mediately followed graduation from Toledo High School. Although the executive department claimed him, his second home was the boat house, where he spent many hours successfully rowing his way to a seat on the varsity shell and a Navy N. The determination to do a job well showed itself in above average grades in academics, while still allowing time for participation in the Foreign Relations Club, NACA, and his church party choir. His free time was spent letter writing, and seldom did the mate pass his room when delivering the mail. Bill ' s personality and abilities kept him from being another " just plain Bill, " and will head him towards a successful career. 116 SECOND ■ I ROBERT GRAHAM PATTERSON Herkimer, New York One of the youngest men in his class, Bob reported to the Academy a week before his high school class graduated. Amiability was his byword, and his keen sense of humor and distinctive brand of laughter made him welcome company at any hour. Like so many who have gone before him, he found it necessary to devote less time to the rack and more to academics with each succeeding year. En- joying the more rugged sports, company soccer and fieldball were his favorites. He was always ready to answer liberty call, but never before chasing down the mailman for his daily quota of mail. WALTER ANGELL PEZET III Grand Rapids, Michigan Bud embarked on his career at USNA after graduation from high school in Grand Rapids. He had no trouble fitting in, and easily overcame the rigors of plebe year. Bud distinguished himself by rowing with the championship plebe lightweight crew team, and succeeding years found him a stalwart member of the Highland Light ' s " crew, with the Bermuda Race being the highlight of each year. His perseverance and determination enabled him to overcome any difficulties he encountered. Bud ' s determined spirit and his af- fable personality have won him many lifelong friends at Navy. These same qualities assure him a service career of distinction. LARRY LaMONT PHEMISTER Mount Vernon, Illinois During plebe year Larry participated in several activities, such as the Math Club, the Concert Band and the Radio Club, but these things dropped in the background as he intensified his efforts in two directions, his academics and his sports. To win a letter in gymnastics and go to postgraduate school were his main ambitions. He with- drew from things, and many a weekend saw him studying, or alone in the gym working the horse. A long, lanky six feet, two inches, the shorter gymnasts were amazed that he was ever able to do any of the tricks. He enjoyed flying second class summer, but hopes to join the " Silent Service " on graduation. BATTALION 117 GLEN RAYMOND PHILLIPS Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Glen came to us from the suburbs of the steel mill city to con- tinue an already outstanding career. His high school days were marked with constant success in athletics and social life. A year at Columbian Prep and a year in the Naval Reserve readied him to take everything in stride. Sportswise, Glen was a tiger at the art of self-defense, winning the middleweight boxing championship during plebe summer, and he was also a plebe standout in football. An easy-going nature, blended perfectly with determination and ability will take Glen far in the future. CHRIS HERNDON POINDEXTER Odon, Indiana During his senior year of high school Chris decided to follow the precedent set two years earlier by his brother, and began the rigors of gaining admittance to USNA. This was not the easiest de- cision Chris had made up to that point, since he had already obtained a medical scholarship to Indiana University, and besides, his was a predominately civilian family. However, all hands will surely agree that Indiana ' s loss was Navy ' s gain. Second class summer was the turning point of Chris ' military career, as it was at Pensacola that he decided it would be Navy Air for him as soon as he obtained those Ensign ' s boards. RODERICK HOWARD POTTER Bangor, Maine Hailing from the land of pine trees and lobsters, Rod brought to the Academy a ready smile and carefree attitude that mellowed during his " Great Lost Weekend. " To these he added an assortment of abilities and interests that included singing, sailing, and sleeping. " Hot Rod " also contributed his athletic talent to intramural sports of the contact variety. Never wanting to push himself too hard, " Redhead " coasted through the Sea School with a minimum of effort, pausing occasionally to taste the delicacies of Navy life or to push the stagline, but always anticipating the return to normalcy after school days were over. 118 SECOND I ROBERT JOSEPH POWERS Dover, New Hampshire Bob came to the Naval Academy after two years experience with the fleet, and one with the Fuller Brush Company. He became interested in crew and was proving to be a good coxswain, but found academics to require more time, and was forced to abandon it. Following his former interests, Bob became an active member of the company soccer, basketball, and Softball teams. Because of his self-discipline, hard work, and unique sense of organization, it is certain that the Submarine Service is gaining an outstanding officer in Bob Powers. . A ENSUE PUNG PUAA Pearl City, Hawaii EnSue, " Su-Su " to his friends, will be hitting the beach in a slightly different manner than that to which he has been accustomed, for he is a native Hawaiian who will be going into the Marine Corps. Born in October, 1938, in Honolulu, he lived in Pearl City on the island of Oahu, and attended Kamehameha School for Boys (a U. S. military institute) prior to entering the Academy. At the Academy, EnSue has been no one ' s " fall man " on the varsity wrestling mat. Although athl etics and studies took up most of his time, there was always time to keep his uke in tune, and his gal happy with letters. ■ tot ■ ' ■ " ■ RICHARD CHARLES RAVETTA East Detroit, Michigan It was quite a change from the University of Detroit to the Naval Academy, but Dick turned immediately to one thing that was most familiar to him — crew. When he wasn ' t wielding an oar, Dick was either working out with weights or a squash racquet, or he was hitting the books. Dick aims for Navy Air, and after being checked out in his Corvette, he should already be qualified for advanced training. A conscientious worker, Dick always studied hard. This trait, coupled with his enthusiasm, promises him a fine career in any field. ;0ND BATTALION 119 JOHN HENRY RICKELMAN nois ' . ' cCook Jr. jtte I e.

A I the Academy ' s numerou: DAVID JOHN SCHNEGELBERGER Newark, New Jersey Dave sacrificed the carefree times of civilian college for the e r atmosphere at Navy, and found that things moved so fast for him here that he never missed his old alma mater. Academics " troubled Dave very much, and his place as the tutor of the r Princes " was well respected. Never at a loss for an attractive drag, Dave managed to spread himself out among his various loves so well that he avoided any serious romances, and plans on life as a bachelor for at least thirty years. An active intramural competitor, Dave ' s athletic endeavors leaned toward boxing, and he committed himself very well. Dave ' s confident and aggressive attitude, coupled his pleasant manner, will stand him in good stead in whatever he attempts. EARLE GODFREY SCHWEIZER, JR. San Diego, California Schweiz ' came to Navy via the well traveled road of the Fleet and NAPS. Like all Navy juniors, he claimed a multitude of home but San Diego, in his beloved land of sunshine, was his favorite. When he wasn ' t battling the academic departments, he made good use of his hard earned free time, contributing his talents to a large sty of sports. His amiable personality won him a horde of friends, a large percentage of which were women. With a deeply inbued love for the female race and a mysterious knack, he acquired more than his share of femmes. " Schweiz " looks to the undersea fleet for his future. BATTALION 121 RICHARD NOEL SUPER Washington, Pennsylvania The Pennsylvania kid came to the Naval Academy by way of Bullis Prep. Varsity 150-pound football and varsity track took up most of the mighty mite ' s time and effort, but you could always count on him to be around when you needed cheering up. Dick loved music, es- pecially calypso by Belafonte. Pensacola will probably be " Supe ' s " next home away from home. The girls found Dick as hard to tackle as his football opponents did. Academics came in stride, perhaps be- cause he would always say, " It ' s one grade in one subject, in one day, in one of four long years. " RAYNOR ANDREW KENT TAYLOR New Bedford, Massachusetts Four semesters at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute gave Ray an academic background which assured him a high class standing at USNA, as well as the loss of many free periods which he willingly spent tutoring floundering classmates. The last two and a half years of his stay at the Academy found Ray spending most of his free time editing the I960 Lucky Bag. However, he always managed to find enough time for dragging, a round of tennis or handball, or a workout in the Macdonough Hall gym. Leave periods usually found Ray on his way to New Bedford and home, or to Mary Washington College. The Navy is indeed fortunate in having among the names on its roll that of R. A. K. Taylor. THOMAS HENRY TEAL Houston, Texas Tom came to USNA still knocking the Texas dust from his shoes. For a person who lived so far from the ocean, he became acquainted with the Navy quickly. Tom prefers subs, and we ' re all sure that his name will rest proudly with the other greats of the " Silent Service. " Next to chasing a soccer ball for all of his four years, Tom ' s main interest was wild parties — the wilder the better. We ' ll never forget Tom, for his sense of humor, his devotion to the service, and his guiding friendship. 122 SECOND NICHOLAS BRIGHAM TEMPLE Washington, D. C. Nick came to the Naval Academy from a Navy family, and claims Washington, D. C, as his home, after living in Japan, Cali- fornia, and Rio de Janeiro. He spent his high school years at Landon High in Bethesda, Maryland, where his ability as a tennis player made itself known. At the Academy, Nick found his studies a little difficult, but surmounted all obstacles with his customary grit and determination. This same determination distinguished him as a tennis letterman for three years, and as a varsity soccer player during the same period. " Hoss, " always a good man at a party, chose Navy Air as his career, and undoubtedly will make a name for himself wherever duty calls. JAMES JOSEPH TENBROOK Millville, New Jersey Jim or " Jim Bo " as he is known to a few of us, came to the Academy with a dream that someday he would play for a Navy football team. Through his tremendous determination and drive, which was evident in whatever he did, he fulfilled this dream. Football was not the only sport at Navy which benefited from his presence, for he spent his dark ages on the wrestling team. Always a terrific companion, he seemed to add that little something that always made whatever you were doing complete. Although quite an athlete and extremely popular, Jim will always be remembered by us all for his true modesty and overwhelming cheerfulness, which made one proud to be associated with him. I DENNIS HOMAN TERRY Blue Point, Long Island, New York After a year of engineering at Tufts University, Den bade farewell to his college lassies, and made his way to Canoe U. via the NROTC. Besides his craze for railroads, he was often seen with many a pretty miss, and firmly believed in the old philosophy that " variety is the spice of life. " Having no trouble with academics, he preferred leisure in the form of the sports activities. Den always sported a pleasing smile, and was always equipped with a humorous retort to another ' s comment. His interest in Navy Air, and his ability to make friends, point to a future of great promise. BATTALION 123 BLAINE EDWARD TIMMER, JR. Holland, Michigan Tim struggled through two years at Hope College before settling down for the four year stretch here at Navy. Because of a knee injury received while playing football. " Dutch " was unable to pursue his first love, and diverted his attention to other fields. His biggest pastime was being friendly with everyone, from the plebes right on up. There is no doubt that his friendliness will be a lifetime asset for him. This friendly Dutchman has decided to serve his thirty in Naval Aviation. Pemaouio point DAVID PAUL TOPP Wheeling, West Virginia Coming from a military institute, Dave ' s background it effortless to adjust to life under the code of USNAR. Navy won his admiration, as is evidenced by his choice of Navy His capabilities were by no means limited to the naval profession solely, for his years at USNA found him participating in the Chapel Choir. Sportswise, Dave incorporated battalion tennis and company basketball with his normal academic routine. The Navy gains a fine performer in Dave Topp. living Line. JOSEPH BERNARDO TRANCHINI Clairton, Pennsylvania " Trigger Joe, " as he was dubbed by his admirers who watched his bullet passes devastate the defenses of opposing teams, came to us from Clairton via Bull is Prep. With his ready smile and likable ways, Joe guickly won himself a lot of friends, who found a release from the tensions of Bancroft Hall just by being in his vicinity. " Trigger " was one of those lucky few who could maintain a respect- able average without falling behind on the latest records, or missing out on his coveted pad time. Always a hit at the parties with his great thirst and low capacity, Joe was forever coming up with something new to keep the ball rolling! He will surely be successful at whatever he tries as long as he can have his bread, wine, and — cha - cha - cha. 124 SECOND ■ Pedr JESUS BONIFACIO TUPAZ California TRACY CLARK TUCKER Sheridan, New York Forced to miss his own high school graduation because USNA was calling, " Trace " received his high school diploma by proxy. Here at the Academy, he established himself as a tine investment. A perfectionist from the word go, he never did less than one hundred percent of what was expected, academically, on the company soccer and one-fifty pound football teams, or in the Choir and Glee Club. Whenever we had a little trouble in skinny or steam, Trace was always ready with a very capable hand to straighten us out. As for his radiant smile, a better advertisement for Ipana couldn ' t be found — dental quarters will witness to that. Hailing from San Pedro, California, Jess has lived up well to the high ideals and standards of USNA. Coming out of San Pedro High School as valedictorian, Jess went on to be a permanent member of the Superintendent ' s List, and a long time holder of stars. With his " go, go " personality, he was very active in the Antiphonal Choir, Russian Club, and a spark plug on many company teams. From here Jess plans to go to postgraduate school, for a degree in nucleonics at Cal Tech. He plans to use his degree in Navy Line, and as a research engineer while on shore duty. ELLIS LOVE TURNER Prospect Hill, North Carolina From the decks of an old destroyer, via NAPS, Les made his way to the Naval Academy. He was determined to make good or learn the reasons why; thus followed a terrible plebe year of learning the reasons why. His stay at the Academy was highlighted by dragging, playing bridge, and figuring out ways to fill his daily quota of rack time. Les had a cheerful greeting for everyone. His ever present smile and ready sense of humor will prove invaluable to him in his future Naval career. BATTALION 125 CHARLES EDWARD WANGEMAN, JR. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Big " Buck, " the biggest little man in the Academy, came to us from that section of the country well known for its football products — Pittsburgh. Buck lost no time in finding his sport, but because of his size played three years of varsity football for our 150-pound mighty-mites. Every class has one man that everyone knows and likes, and Buck is that man in the class of ' 60. A congenial host, and always ready with a helping hand, both in and out of the Academy; just ask anyone and they ' ve either been to, or know of, Buck ' s home in Ocean City. His enthusiasm for fast and sporty cars will go hand in hand with his aspirations of becoming a jet ace. ALLEN PEASE WHITAKER Chester, Vermont Al arrived at Navy with a smile and a sense of humor, and despite the rigors of plebe year and second class skinny, his smile never faded. Al decided on the Marine Corps in his youngster year, and should stand out in the Corps as he did at the Academy. The sincerity and comradeship, which were a part of his make up, will stand him in good stead in his chosen career. All of us will remember Al, feeling fortunate that we knew him, and wishing him the best the Marine Corps can give him. DOUGLAS ALLAN WILLIAMS Burlingame, California Having always lived near the sea, Doug was right at home here at Navy. With two years in the fleet, his first love was sub- marines, followed by girls and sports cars. Soon after arriving from NAPS, " D. A. " found his way to Hubbard Hall, where he spent most of his afternoons rowing on the Severn. Academics were never a problem for the big Finn, although Dago proved harassing at times. His smooth manner and likable ways helped him to make friends far and wide, and mixed with his ambitions and " never say die " spirit, can only lead him to the top. The Naval Service will wel- come such a capable and well-rounded mariner. 126 SECOND HUGH THOMAS WILLIAMS Inverness, Florida " Hasty " came to Navy after a year at Auburn, where he was In the NROTC program. Originally from Brewton, Alabama, he is a strong Rebel, and always ready to prove it. Hugh loves to fly, and thinks a stick would fit his hand better than a sextant. Studies didn ' t come easy for him, due to his residing in the hospital eleven weeks youngster year with a knee injury. Hasty was an active NA-IO member, playing the slide trombone. He is noted from Pensacola to Rio for his ability to bop, and his favorite food is egg salad sandwich es. MURRAY HAMILTON WITCHER, JR. Marietta, Georgia Hailing straight from " Johnny Reb " country down Georgia way, " Witch " made his way through plebe year singing " Marching Through Georgia " and " John Brown ' s Body. " Studies were a constant source of conflict to his main interests: varsity sailing and varsity dragging. Fortunately, the two could often be consolidated effec- tively, faithful to Naval efficiency. During the winter he graced the flying rings of the varsity gym team, until he traded them for the flying sheets of the Highland Light. Witch ' s southern suaveness, punctuated by his rustic philosophy, and remarks that broke up the party, will long be remembered by his classmates. Fortunate will be the submarine that claims his judgement and clear thinking. JOHN DAVID WOODWARD Columbia, Missouri Dave Woodward came to us from Columbia, Missouri, where he graduated from Hickman High School and attended the University of Missouri as a NROTC student. With him he brought an intelligent, calculating mind, an adeptness at sports, and a magnetic personality that drew us all to him. " Woody ' s " uncanny knack of being able to study, regardless of distractions around him, helped to keep him on the Superintendent ' s List every year. Although a baseball star in high school, " Woody " devoted himself to the art of sailing while at the Academy, and earned his yawl command. Dave ' s common sense and ability to reason will prove a great asset to the Navy. BATTALION 127 SALVATORE ALBERT ZACCAGNINO Buffalo, New York After establishing an outstanding high school record, Sal journeyed south to the Severn, where he continued to excel both in academics and in athletics. Well known as one of the " Four Princes, " Sal ' s love of fun and ready smile made his presence imperative for any successful get-together. After having been exposed to the lovely girls away from home, Sal ' s many love affairs kept him on his toes, but by sheer finesse, he remained unscathed, carefree, and single. Since academics proved no real obstacle, Sal turned to brigade boxing for a true challenge. A real gentleman and a true leader, Sal will find success throughout his naval career. THOMAS BERRY ALBERSHART Fort Thomas, Kentucky Tom arrived at the Academy straight from the blue hills of Kentucky. His sporting interests were in football where he spent the majority of his afternoons behind the green fence. Tom didn ' t have an OAO but his drags were always choice selections, except for one beauty youngster year, which held the brick for three weeks straight. Another of Tom ' s big interests was the outdoors where he spent most of his vacations hunting and fishing. Tom ' s outstanding ability and friendly manner assure him of success in whatever he decides to do. CHAMPE OFFUTT BACHELDER Kingsport, Tennessee Champe was a little older than most of his classmates, coming to the Naval Academy after three years at Georgia Tech. He did not have the usual plebe problem of learning how to study and managed to maintain a Superintendent ' s List average throughout his four years. His even temper and easy way helped him through the rigors of plebe year and aided him in making many long-lasting friends at the Academy. In the field of sports, it was the golf course that received the major portion of Champe ' s time as he bolstered the battalion golf teams. Any branch of the naval service will be pleased to welcome the industrious and dedicated man that Champe typifies. -i cpT NOLIE LEE BELL Arvada, Colorado Nolie brought with him, from his home state of Colorado, a strong fighting spirit and a sense of humor which brought him the friendship of many. Perseverance was the word for Nolie: he kept his smile and good spirits throughout even the most unpleasant periods of Academy life. He enjoyed both varsity and intramural cross- country and on weekday afternoons he could often be found out in the field practicing. Weekends he worked to uphold his reputa- tion as a ladies ' man. No one who knew him will soon forget his friendly manner and personality. THIRD BATTALION 129 CHARLES ERWIN BINGEMER Evansville, Indiana Chuck is a product of the Hoosier State but sea water flows in his veins. Coming to the Academy from NAPS after two and a half years in the fleet, he continued to sail here. During his first class year he skippered the Freedom. Well liked and admired by all of his classmates, he was quiet but always willing to lend a hand. Gradu- ation will see him on his way back to the fleet and his first love, submarines. For a man of his ability the future can hold nothing but success. Iv- ALLEN MORRIS BISSELL Virginia Beach, Virginia Al came to USNA after spending two years at Hamilton College in New York. Although born in Orange, New Jersey, he now calls Virginia Beach, Virginia, home. While at the Academy he saw action on the battalion lacrosse and company soccer fields where he has been a great credit to his teams. As far as other extracurricular activities are concerned, Al had his full share. Besides being closely connected with the Trident Society, Al was a member of WRNV and Masqueraders where his help was greatly appreciated. Navy Line seems to be number one on the list for Al, with a strong prefer- ence for submarines. Whatever his choice, we are sure that Al will be at the top doing the best job possible. JOHN EDWARD BLUM Richland, Washington John came to the Academy from the atomic city of Richland, Washington. Since John liked sports, he could always be found help- ing the company in intramural competition. Never one to stay with any one sport, John tried his hand at all sports. He never had trouble with the sciences or mathematics, but the finer courses like Bull and Dago kept him studying. John should have no trouble distinguishing himself as a fine officer. 130 THIRD DAVID RICHARD BOLDEN Coatesville, Pennsylvania With a year at West Chester State Teacher ' s College behind him, Dave found little difficulty in switching over to the new routine. As all Pennsylvania Coal Miners he proved to be quite an athlete and was consistently pushing a record in some swimming event. Aside from sleeping the major portion of his four years away, he would occasionally crack a book. Any extra time was spent in writing letters, hopping out in town to a show, or getting more sleep. After gradu- ation it is Navy Air for Dave. •t r PETER GEORGE BOS Mentor, Ohio Pete came to USNA after spending a year at Carnegie In- stitute of Technology where he was a member of Beta Theta Pi fraternity. He became active in brigade activities and was elected vice president of his class during youngster year. He was the main- stay of his company basketball team and won his N by rowing varsity crew. Pete was also a star in academics and was never too busy to share his knowledge with those who needed it. When he wasn ' t out for athletics or studying, one could find him at the nearest drag house with a drag of the week. The future will find Pete behind the throttle of a fast moving Jet. RICHARD LEROY BROWN, JR. Silver Spring, Maryland Dick Brown, who hails from Silver Spring, Maryland, came to the Naval Academy via Bullis Prep. He was active in athletics during his stay at the Academy. While a plebe he participated in both basketball and baseball, both of which he followed through by being a member of these varsity teams the following three years. Not only an athlete, Dick did well in academics. His favorite subject was al- ways Bull. After graduation Brownie plans to don the Marine green. BATTALION 131 It CARL EUGENE BRUNTLETT Rapid City, South Dakota Hailing from Rapid City, South Dakota, Carl is a plainsmar who came East to learn the ways of the sea. It is his desire to view this sea from the air, as he hopes to some day wear the Navy wings of gold. Carl spent one year at the University of Colorado, where he learned the ways of college men as a member of Delta Tau Delta. He ran on the freshman track team at Colorado and brought this talent with him to the Naval Academy. He was on Navy ' s track teams for four years as one of the top sprinters. Carl desires to do postgraduate work in one of the technical fields of the Navy. JAMES JACKSON CAMERON Los Angeles, California Jim arrived at the Academy at the age of seventeen and newly graduated from Westchester High School in Los Angeles. Age being of no consequence to Jim, he quickly won the respect and admiration of his classmates and superiors alike, through his capacity for academics, his natural ability at sports, his talent for making quick and steadfast friendships, and most of all for his capability for doing his best. Athletically, Jim was a valuable member of many of Navy ' s intramural teams such as handball, volleyball, gymnastics, Softball, and football. Also, Jim lettered as a tumbler and high bar man on the plebe gym team. A hard worker, Jim has contributed much to the Brigade during his four years through his display of fine leadership, high scholastic standings and sportsmanlike qualities. Certainly he will do no less as a naval officer. CHARLES EDGAR CHRISTOPHER Tuscaloosa, Alabama In the past four years at Navy, Charlie has shown a well- rounded personality as well as interest and enthusiasm. As an example, he sang in the Chapel Choir for four years and participated in tennis, soccer, fieldball, cross-country and Softball. He has considerable interest in music and one of his most valued possessions is his stereo hi-fi. Among other extracurricular interests, Charlie worked on the Log staff. A capable student, agile athlete, smooth dancer and a pleasing social ease marks Charlie as excellent officer material and will enable him to get ahead in the years to come. 132 THIRD MICHAEL ANGELO CIOCCA Stratford, New Jersey Four years ago Drexel Tech ' s loss became Navy ' s gain as Mike Ciocca entered the Academy via Egg Harbor, New Jersey. A great outdoorsman, Mike never missed the opportunity to discuss his favorite subjects, which were boating and archery. Second class summer brought Mike still another love, Naval Aviation. Whenever things got low, there were always the consolations found in his dreams of Navy Air, and the Little Campus ' coffee. Mike made a lot of friends at Navy and will probably make a lot more at 20,000 feet. He has left a fine record behind him, and we are all sure that he will find the same success throughout his career. FRANCIS SCHWERDT CLARK Altoona, Pennsylvania Hailing from Altoona, Pennsylvania. Frank discarded his plans to attend Penn State when he decided to come to Navy. An energetic sportsman, Frank found his outlets in the form of battalion football, track, and tennis, along with company fieldball and cross-co,. During summer and winter leaves much of his time was spent hunting and fishing. Given half a chance he can prove that four years of singing in the Catholic Choir has not been wasted. Never to be outdone, he always managed to have an attractive girl at the hops. If asked about his future plans, two words would be his reply — Marine Corps. KENNETH GEORGE CLARK Howard Beach, New York Ken, an ex-navy man, having served three years as a hospital corpsman in the fleet prior to arriving at USNA, quickly and easily found his groove in the Academy ' s military way of life. Although studies came hard to Ken, he was not one to lag behind and through sheer perseverance surmounted his academic obstacles. Athletically, he excelled on the parallel bars on the plebe and battalion gym teams, and was always a valuable member of the Softball, handball and bowling teams. Fun loving and always ready with a funny quip, Ken made a hit with both his classmates and the Annapolis female popu- lace. A man with ambition and the love for a job well done, Ken will certainly go far in his naval career. BATTALION 133 SPENCER CLEVELAND Snyder, New York Now that graduation is here, Spence can look back on his four years by the river with fond memories and a smile. He became noted for his smiling plebe year and as a result was one of the most sought after fourth classmen in the battalion. Besides this, he was an avid wrestler and tennis ball chaser, although the feminine set did occupy many of his weekends. Spence is looking forward and upward to a fine career in Navy Air. His cheerfulness and ability to work hard will stand him in good stead. Snyder, New York, will soon be able to boast of its flying lad. GARY BRUGH COGDELL Buffalo, New Yolk The lure of the sea was so deeply fixed in Gary ' s blood that he skipped his high school ' s graduation ceremony in order to receive the benefits of plebe summer. Studies came rather easy and in his spare time he could usually be found splashing the water over at Hubbard Hall. For some reason Gary seems to prefer balancing between two frail wings high above the clouds to the inherent stability of a destroyer. Gary ' s intelligence and drive are certain to lead him to success in the Navy. PAUL WILLIAM COOPER, JR. Cary, North Carolina Gathering up his rock and roll records and bringing a per- sonality which characterized him as one of the most likeable members of the Brigade, Paul left Hargrove Military Academy to join the clan at Annapolis. In addition to extolling the wonders of North Carolina and seeing western movies, he found time to excel on the gridiron and stand among the best in his class in academics. We are sure that he will be a welcome addition to the fleet, where he eventually hopes to enter Naval Aviation. 134 THIRD DANIEL TIMOTHY COUGHLIN, JR. Havertown, Pennsylvania Dan entered the Academy after a year of college, and, unable to understand the change in routine, he introduced the " Coughlin Plan " which was to change USNA forever. However, the system proved itself an unbending foe and Dan altered his ideas. Soon, however, he got into the swing of things, and became a willing part of the Brigade. Dan was a soloist with the Glee Club, the Catholic Choir, the Musical Club Show, and in the shower for the entire four years. Dan plans on doing a lot of flying in the Navy during his future career. LARRY GLEN COX Pampa, Texas This lad from Texas is the first one to come to USNA from the well known community of Pampa. He liked Academy life so much that he decided to try and talk his buddies into coming here and he succeeded. Larry liked to run as is evidenced by his participation in company cross-country and steeplechase plus two years of battalion track. Larry ' s personality and abilit y are certain to carry him to success in his career in Naval Aviation. DAVID HAROLD CUTCOMB Omaha, Nebraska Dave was best known for his close associations with the new Field House. This was due not only to his prowess as a hurdler on the track team, on which he held a few Naval Academy records, but also because of a pretty little secretary who worked there. Dave holds the dubious distinction of having been the only hurdler to fall flat on his face in two consecutive meets. As a direct result Dave was also in the running for the most renewed excused squad chits in a single season. Always crooning some melody, his avid love of music was apparent to all. It looks like Pensacola for Dave followed by a fine career in Navy Air. BATTALION 135 « Tovidence, ROBERT MARIO DeMAlO Rhode Island " Dee, " as he is known to his friends and enemies alike, came to the Naval Academy from three years in the fleet and, as most ex-enlisted men, came through NAPS at Bainbridge, Maryland. He has been instrumental in lifting the morale of all he came in contact with, both in a professional and personal capacity. His big smile and droll wit will no doubt be as effective as an officer as it has been as a midshipman. A key man in company sports, he has seen several championship teams. Here ' s hoping Dee has as much success outside the Academy as he has had while a member of the Brigade. GEORGE EVERETT DENN, JR. San Mateo, California George came to the Academy from the state of Oregon via the prep school at Bainbridge, Maryland. George ' s two and one half years of enlisted Navy service was a definite asset to him while at the Academy. All of us will remember his quiet manner. On a fall or winter afternoon one could always find George, a varsity gymnast, at MacDonough Hall working out on the side horse. In the spring it was company Softball. George prefers Navy Line and is aiming for submarine school at New London after a year at sea. DAVID GEORGE DERBES Pottsville, Pennsylvania Dave came to USNA from the coal region of Pennsylvania and when he wasn ' t out on the track running for the varsity or at his desk writing a letter he could usually be found expounding the glories of his hometown to a classmate. Although Dave could always be counted on for a good time, he was both serious and sincere in all his efforts, giving his all to everything he endeavored. This quality is sure to bring Dave much success in the future, which holds the promise of a fine career in the Marine Corps. 136 THIRD ! GARY THOMAS DILWEG Washington, D. C. Hailing from the nation ' s capital, Gary was one of those tall, quiet, good-looking guys. Although the academics gave him trouble once in a while, he stili found time to play his favorite sport, tennis. Also no one in the PT department could deny his prowess as a swimmer. Unlike most midshipmen, Gary didn ' t spend all of his free time on the blue trampoline. You could usually find him reading a good book or catching up on world affairs during spare hours. This fact might explain why he was always in the cut " Bull ' ' sections. His eyes limit him to Navy Line or Supply Corps, but his competence will see him through a career in either with flying colors. » I JAMES FRANCIS DUFFY Chicago, Illinois Jim graduated from St. Ignatius High School in Chicago. After high school he went to work for the Illinois Bell Telephone Company. He received his appointment through the Naval Reserve. His silver gray hair was an object of awe and curiosity to all who knew him. Jim rowed 150-pound plebe crew and attained Brigade wide fame as a boxer, winning his N as 145-pound class champ. He was also a mainstay of the battalion football and water polo teams. Due to his many activities, including the Catholic Choir and the N Club, there was at times some difficulty with the studies. However, in the end Jim always managed to defeat his two principal enemies, math and " skinny. " After graduation Jim plans on a career in Naval Aviation. 1 HENRY PATRICK EGAN, JR. Flushing, New York After making quite a name for himself playing basketball for Niagara University, Hank headed for USNA. His greatest love, of course, was basketball and he proved to be a valuable asset for Navy. Academics came easy to Hank, leaving him time to pursue his literary interests. The " Ghost " had a keen sense of humor and a sharp wit which often made those dreary days go by a little faster. His easygoing manner and leadership qualities will always place him high in later life. r BATTALION 137 DONALD GENE EIRICH Norfolk, Virgina Don came to the Naval Academy fresh out of high school, eager and determined to make his mark at USNA. Despite his trade- mark, black horn rimmed glasses, " Waldo, " as he is known to his classmates, was not regarded as an academic slash though he did manage to successfully avoid the ravages of math and " skinny " throughout his four years here. Don is noted for his good sense of humor and even temper. Preferring the contact sports, Don has par- ticipated in fieldball, battalion boxing, and battalion lacrosse as well as fencing. After graduation Don hopes to go Navy Line where his determination and keen personality will make him an important asset to the Navy. WILLIAM ROBERT EVANS Trenton, New Jersey Bill, after two years in the fleet and one in college, entered USNAY and went on to become one of Navy Tech ' s celebrated five year scholars. The pride of Trenton is the only supersonic mid in the Brigade, having broken the sound barrier in a Cougar jet. Outstand- ing among Bills talents are his proficiency at piano and wrestling as well as his good humor and ambition, which bring cheer wherever he goes. His future plans include flying, and Bill promises that he will marry before he is thirty. NORMAN DEAN FALK St. Paul, Nebraska Norm, a quiet-spoken lad from Nebraska, had never seen an ocean when he arrived and was not quite sure just what an Ensign was. However, he was quickly indoctrinated in the ways of the system. Although he probably logged more hours in the sack than the rest of his classmates combined, he still had time to excel in academics. Whenever he wasn ' t in the pad, he could usually be found feeling around for his glasses or writing to his current drag. His major interests were squash, concert band, and girls — he managed to hold his own with all three. Norm, with his casual manner, quickly made friends with everyone he met and will be long remembered by his classmates. 138 THIRD JOEL WILLIAM FEBEL Lincolnwood, Illinois Joe, as a product of the Chicago suburbs, arrived at USNA with his golf clubs in one hand and artist ' s pencil in the other, as well as a fine academic background. During his four years at the Academy, he made good use of each of these items; playing on the varsity golf team, helping design the class crest, and wearing stars. On rainy days when the golf course was closed, " Connie, " as he is known to his cohorts, could be found around the company bridge table. Upon graduation Joe plans to begin a career as a naval aviator. Itekdb CHARLES HAMBLETON FLEMING, JR. Scott City, Kansas Chuck was the most unpredictable guy in the class. Who would have thought that this slow, easygoing Kansas plowboy could run as fast as the stars on the steeplechase and battalion track teams? Who could have visualized that a lad who had never held hands with a girl before would wind up pinned to the nicest looking girl in Yankee land before youngster year was over? When exams rolled around he was always in there fighting to maintain his 2.6 average, clearly showing his unfailing determination. Chuck will have little trouble in finding success. DONALD GEORGE FOERY Havertown, Pennsylvania Coming to Navy from Drexel Tech in Philadelphia, Don found studies rather easy. This left him with extra hours to write to his many girl friends all over the forty eight and in South America. A shoulder injury kept him off of the soccer and wrestling teams; but he found handball, squash, and tennis were good substitutes. Don also earned a reputation as a fire-eater with all of the plebes be- cause of his early morning activities with those who crossed his path. But even with all of these activities, he still set an Academy record as one of the best blue trampoline men in the hall. Navy Air is certainly going to receive a good man. BATTALION 139 ALFRED RODNEY FRIEDMANN Plalnville, Connecticut Although now living in Plainville, Connecticut, Rod spent most of his pre-academic days at New Britain, Connecticut. He attended high school there, lettering in football and taking a major part in class activities. Both the Naval and Coast Guard Academies looked good to him, but Rod decided to throw in with Canoe U. After a rigorous plebe year, " The Baron " settled down to the executive status of an upperclassman. It was during aerobatics at Pensacola that he decided to try subs after graduation. The undersurface fleet will find a good shipmate and a swell guy in Rod Friedmann. ROBERT EUGENE GASSER Cullman, Alabama Gene, armed with a gifted sense of humor, came from the deep South, and was seldom seen without a smile on his face. In- sisting that the Navy issued him his first pair of shoes, he never be- came convinced that there was a real need for them. Spending the major part of his free time singing with the choir and playing on intramural fieldball, tennis and volleyball teams, he was always on the go. Wherever duty shall lead him in the future, it is certain that his pleasant manner will keep him always among friends. V . - PAUL BRIAN GAYNOR Hoboken, New Jersey " Mitz " came to us from the west bank of the Hudson and the little town of Hoboken, New Jersey. With him he brought that distinguished Jersey accent which he has yet to live down. He strikes a happy medium of being both carefree and serious in attitude, but he is always ready, willing, and able for a good time. The fa- miliar cry of " I don ' t believe it " during " skinny " lectures will be re- membered by all. His service choice tends to be with those who wear the green and his future appears to be bright. I 140 THIRD JOHN BRATTON GELLER Indianapolis, Indiana Jerry came to the Academy after graduating from Culver Military Academy. Elected as librarian of the Glee Club for two years and an active member of the Choir, Jerry was always kept busy with his extracurricular activities. He did, however, find time to en- gage in sports and he was not only an outstanding member of the plebe and varsity sguash teams but also tried his hand at crew during his youngster year. Jerry will always be remembered for the con- tribution of his time to Brigade activities but most important, we will remember his smile and a cheerful song during the " dark ages. " The Navy can always be proud of such an industrious man, who will do well in any assignment. DAVID SLAGLE GILBREATH Marion, Indiana After attending Marion High School, Dave decided he would like to give the Navy a try. Adapting himself to the new environment, Dave found a great amount of spare time which he killed by reading, sleeping and listening to good music. No lover, Dave maintained that some day his OAO would come along and therefore there was no need in wasting time with others. Extracurricularwise, Dave put his bass voice to work in the Choir and Glee Club. A quiet and easygoing lad who never had trouble with the academics, he was always willing to help a classmate with a problem. GORDON TERREL GODWIN Mesa, Arizona Terry, born in Hot Springs, Arkansas, has been a resident of Arizona for the past sixteen years. He spent two years with the NROTC at the University of Michigan, while studying Naval archi- tecture. Immediately prior to his entrance to the Academy, he was employed as a draftsman. Terry ' s experience and aptitude helped him earn the prize for the highest standing in Marine Engineering plebe year. Excelling in sailing, he received his Yawl and Racing Commands as a youngster and participated in the Newport ocean races for three years to earn his letter. His knowledge and hard work will surely bring him success in the " tin can navy " or anywhere else. BATTALION 141 MARK MELVYN GOLDEN Saint Petersburg, Florida Mark came to the Academy after bidding farewell to his gay college days at Tufts University. Finding that his new car and old beer stein were of little use here, Mark turned his talents in other directions. Soon he took up sailing and fencing, whenever he could manage to untangle himself from the miles of film that he shot for the Lucky Bag. Though Mark starred in academics every year, he never missed a chance to drag on weekends. He kept in condition by leading the race to and from the drag house. Still clutching his slide rule, and sporting a large supply of seasick pills, Mark is heading for the fleet and a naval career. WALKER RAITT GOODRICH, JR. Portsmouth, New Hampshire " Casey " came to the Academy after two years of college, one of which was spent at that place on the Hudson. An Army Brat, Casey found himself and his huge Army B-robe a target for many of his classmates ' jibes. Instead of pursuing the fair sex through the yard he could usually be found reading volumes on ships, tactics, and other such military writings. Sailing and a running battle with the " Bull " Department took up most of his time. Definitely a career man, he ' ll be shooting for five stars. FORREST VIRGIL GRAVES Monterey, California Virgil, a Californian and an Army Brat, came to USNA from the fleet and the Naval Academy Preparatory School. Astuteness is the encompassing word for his character. Although this ability evolved from his perplexing female problems which were intercon- tinental in scope, he found quick application for it in navigating the precarious waters of academics. Virgil was a dangerous man in squash, handball, and cards, and had an insatiable appetite which was continually frustrated by the mandatory march out from each meal. Well liked by his classmates but avoided by plebes, Virgil will be remembered by those fortunate enough to serve with or under him. !42 THIRD ■ JAMES MICHAEL GREENWALD Niagara Falls, New York Jim came to USNA directly from the Niagara F Hioh School, bringing with him a fine academic and athletic background. His midshipman career was marked by the loss of his hair and eye- sight, both of which, perhaps, can be attributed to his conscientious efforts to excel in the classroom, on the athletic field, and at his much-loved bridge table. Jim will be long remembered by his class- mates either swinging a squash racket, tearing through a " Dago " text, or talking in ranks. After graduation he is looking forward to further education and a career in Navy Line. PemAquid point GARY JAMES GRETTER Fargo, North Dakota After beating off the Indians and women from the North Dakota plains of his ancestors, Gary finally blazed his way to colonial Annapolis. Although Fargo ' s Shanley High School and North Dakota State University developed in him some rowdy civilian habits, he was soon to get acquainted with the rigorous Academy routine and its many restriction musters. He has always been sought out by mem- bers of all classes because of his familiarity with sports cars and aviation. This is one of the many reasons why he is so popular throughout the company. Cagey " G. G., " as he has been dubbed, sees his future in Navy Air and aspires to become one of the Blue Angels. WARREN GILBERT HAHN Milwaukee, Wisconsin Nicknamed " Pinto " by his classmates, Warren swells with pride whenever he hears someone mention the Beer City of the nation or the Milwaukee Braves. He considers himself an expert on both. Con- tinuing to develop his skills and talents, Warren has been observed bumping heads, running track, cheerleading, and singing early Sunday morn. His great talents and abilities coupled with his timely wise- cracks and discretion have created many lasting friendships for this popular mid. Whether you are vacationing on Paris Island or basking on the Little Creek beaches, you just might bump into Warren. BATTALION 143 ■ LYNN ALLEN HALE Riverside, California Lynn entered the Naval Academy from the fleet, following a freshman year at the University of California. With this background, our Californian left his mark in many fields while at the Naval Academy. He will always be remembered for his performance in the classroom, as company representative, and as a member of his class honor committee. Lynn ' s spare time was spent -either on the athletic field or indulging in his favorite pastime, bridge. Having boomed through the sound barrier once as a midshipman, Lynn plans to make it an everyday affair following graduation. RICHARD WARREN HAMON Miami, Florida " Rocky, " as he is affectionately called by his classmates, will always consider Florida the biggest, best and by far the warmest state in the Union. Two years as a Delt at the University of Florida have given him the foundation to stand high academically, while holding down such sports honors as Brigade Boxing Champ. His drive and good natured personality will undoubtedly keep him at the top in anything he chooses to do. 1 DAVID ROGER HAND Tempe, Arizona Born on the 6th of November, 1937, in Galesburg, Illinois, Doc came to us from the town of Tempe, Arizona, after one year at New Mexico A M. He received a great deal of experience work- ing at the White Sands Proving Grounds as a co-operative student. Here at Canoe U. Doc really showed them how to do it in gym- nastics on the horizontal bar, in plebe and later in battalion gym. He was also an avid supporter of the engineering club. He plans to enter the Submarine Service as soon as possible after graduation. Doc will serve us well in the years to come in the undersea Navy. 144 THIRD EIGIL LUND HANSEN, JR. Falls Church, Virginia Gil is a Navy junior who hails from Falls Church, Virginia. He came to the Academy right out of high school. His amiable per- sonality and tremendous perseverance will carry him to the top of his chosen field. After graduation he plans to make submarines his career. During study hours Gil could always be found with his books. His good grades proved that his hard work was definitely not in vain. After classes Gil usually spent time working out in Hubbard Hall. He excelled in lightweight crew throughout his four years at USNA. Socially speaking, Gil played the field. On weekends he invariably had a date, and one never saw him with the same drag twice. Gil was indeed liked by all and his friendly personality will be missed by everyone who knew him. We can be sure that our Submarine Service is getting one of the best. Lovelock, CHESTER EARL HANSON Nevada When the state of Nevada delivered Chet upon the steps of the Naval Academy it did this country a great service. Undaunted by the trials of the transition from student at Lovelock High School to Midshipman, United States Navy, Chet again and again proved his ability to manage any task presented to him. While at the Naval Academy, Chet excelled in four fields: leadership, academics, sports, and social life, each of which he handled with utmost ease. Associa- tion with Chet here at the Naval Academy has been an inspiration to all of us, and we will all take pride in serving with him in the fleet. RALPH EDWARD HANSON, JR. Vallejo, California Ralph ' s tour on the banks of the Severn has been one of con- scientious study coupled with keen observations of life and people around him. He was born in Washington, D. C, the son of a Navy family; thus he is no new subscriber to travel and diversity. During his four years here, Ralph has been an enthusiastic member of the Splinter Staff, and an avid supporter of Navy athletics. He spent two years in the Naval Reserve before entering, where he acquired some insight into the functions of the Navy, and, as a result, will be able to apply himself toward his goal with more certainty than many of us. His drive and thirst for new horizons will make Ralph a wel- come addition to the naval service. BATTALION 145 It BRUCE HOWARD HARDIN Anchorage, Alaska Bruce hails from the brand new state of Alaska although he was born in the midwestern town of Belleville, Kansas, in September of 1938. He moved to Alaska in 1947 and has lived in Anchorage ever since. Although Bruce has never participated in any varsity sports, he was quite active in intramurals. Studies and Bruce didn t get along too well but he found great enjoyment in just having good old fashioned fun. Bruce came to the Naval Academy straight from high school and plans to enter Navy Line after graduation. RICHARD THOMAS HARPER Valparaiso, Indiana During the early part of plebe year, Dick picked up the nick- name of " Teddy Bear " from the upperclass and it just seemed to stick. Coming to USNA straight out of Valparaiso High School in Indiana, Dick quickly demonstrated his skill as a potential engineer. However, Bull and Dago never seemed to come with the same ease as did the engineering subjects. On the social scene, Dick has had his ups and downs with the female set, but has always remained un- daunted. Dick feels that Navy Line is mighty fine. DAVID EUGENE HAUGHTON Fort Pierce, Florida Dave was one of the best tennis players ever to attend USNA, but even more than that, a guy who put his heart into everything he ever did. He is a gentleman and one person everyone was proud to claim as a friend. He was never at a loss for the right words in any situation. Dave participated in many sports, tennis being his first love. Marriage and Navy Air seem to have his future determined after graduation. 146 THIRD . RUSSELL ORREN HAYS Little Rock, Arkansas Rusty, as he is known to his classmates, came to us via the University of Colorado. Originally an Army brat, Rusty has trans- ferred his allegiance to the Navy. Though active in many Brigade activities, his favorite was lightweight crew. Rusty and his shellmates were regularly out in the Severn getting ready for another season. This hard work has paid big dividends. He and his teammates brought Navy her first National Lightweight title. Now that his tour is completed here, Rusty plans to switch from surface vessels to sub- mersibles after a stop at New London. DAVID MICHAEL HEATH Woodland Hills, California David was a product of a suburb of Los Angeles, California. After graduation from high school he went to college for one semester and then entered the Academy on a senatorial appoint- ment. To his friends, which are many, he is known as Mike. During his four years at USNA, Mike was most active on the various golf teams and could be found almost every afternoon on the course. Mike is choosing Navy Line with postgraduate work a must, and we all wish him the best of luck and good sailing. I 1 LEWIS EDWARD HILDER Arlington, Virginia Hailing from Arlington, Virginia, Lew came to the Naval Academy with a better than average ability in academics and a tremendous ability in athletics, namely track. Although always wor- ried about bilging out, he would repeatedly slash the exams. While he was constantly seen near the high jump pit, he also managed to find time for squash and tennis. Having an excellent voice, it was no wonder that several times a week he could be found participating with the Choir and Glee Club. Earning the admiration of all his classmates, Lew will long be remembered after graduation. BATTALION 147 GERALD ROSS HILL Freeport, Illinois Dubbed " Jer " by those who know him, this scintillating char- acter with a ready smile and quick wit never ran into trouble meeting people or making friends. Always available to help those in academic distress, Jerry, with his Illinois engineering know-how, had little trouble with the courses offered at USNA. A member of the varsity baseball nine as a hurler, plus a year playing 150-pound football rounded out his athletic career at Navy. A staunch advocate of the USMC, he hopes, after graduation, to join the wearers of the green. The Corps will receive a fine officer and intelligent gentleman in Gerald Hill. I - JOHN RUSSELL HOKE II Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania This talented young fellow came straight from high school to take up his residence here on the Severn. Sports and academics were Russ ' s two special talents. After setting a natatorium record plebe year, Russ continued to prove his swimming ability in varsity competi- tion for the following three years. The classroom was no exception to his versatility. Never one to worry too much about academics, Russ had the ability to read an assignment once and retain it. This fast method of learning helped him to stand consistently at the top in every subject. Russ, always good natured and modest, had many friends at the Academy. His ability to mix well with people will stand him in good stead wherever the future takes him. " -r dftln DANIEL HENRI JEAN Tampa, Florida " The Deacon, " as he has been known to his classmates, came from Tampa, Florida, bringing with him a mind full of new ideas to assist him academically. He was always extremely helpful to a few friends whose talents in several science courses were very meager. Each new year brought new stories of his latest escapades in Europe, where he lived with relatives during leave. His command of several languages made him particularly well liked by foreign students whom he would amiably take under his wing. Yes, it ' s been fun knowing him and the Navy has something to look forward to with his graduation. 148 THIRD CHARLES DAVID JENKINS Six Mile Run, Pennsylvania Charlie came to our hallowed hall from Dover, New Jersey. He originally hails from the small mining town, Six Mile Run, in Pennsylvania, but has been on the move throughout most of his life. At USNA his tall frame helped spark both the battalion and company football teams on to victory while in the spring he could always be found on the tennis courts. His winning smile and hearty laugh will remain with us all and we know he will have nothing but success when he takes his place amongst those who wear the golden wings. £Klfl$ FREDERICK NOEL JERDING Hayward, California Fred is originally from Chicago, but he now claims California as his home. In 1955 after graduation from high school in Hayward, California, he attended the University of California at Berkeley, where he majored in physics. Fred entered the Academy at the age of seventeen. During his stay at Navy, Fred was one of the top men in academics. He stood first in youngster steam and stood among the top ten in several other subjects. Fred didn ' t spend all of his time studying; he also had time for the Photo Club, German Club, the Math and Science Seminar, and sailing. After attending post- graduate school, Fred hopes to go into research and development for the Navy. ROBERT EDWARD JOHANNESEN North Platte, Nebraska After one year at the University of Omaha Bob found the routine of plebe year somewhat trying. Applying himself to the books wasn ' t his idea of fun; however, he derived a lot of pleasure from pre-reveille extracurricular floor polishing in segundos ' rooms. Though Spanish, math, and skinny often gave him some anxious moments, he usually circumvented the other subjects with a minimum of toil. Bob devoted much of his free time to the Brigade Activities Committee, the Drum and Bugle Corps, and his ever-ready rack. Possessing an ingenerate ease in company, particularly that of the opposite sex, Bob should enjoy a happy existence in whatever en- deavor attracts him. BATTALION 149 DOUGLAS MARVIN JOHNSTON Southworth, Washington Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Doug came to the Academy ee years at high school and one year at Bullis Prep. Duri ng the week he could be found writing for the Log, polishing his four-year stars, or induls " a.orite sports of swimming and water polo. The weekends would find him dragging or writing letters to the background music of the Four Freshmen. A good disposition and a knack for getting the most out of liberty time should help Doug in becoming a good jet pilot for Uncle Sam. WALTER RAYMOND JONES Portland, Oregon The great Northwest lost one of its most loyal backers when Walt said goodbye to pre-med and headed to the shores of the Severn. A good man with the slide rule, Walt never wasted any liberty time worrying about the academics. He took full advantage of his position on the varsity debate squad, spending five or six weekends a year at various east coast colleges. A tough man with the plebes, Walt will long be remembered in the Sixth Company. Navy Air will have another character in W. R. Jones, Class of I960. FRANCIS DANIEL KAY Brooklyn, New York Francis Daniel Kay, better known by his friends as Frank, came from Brooklyn, New York. Since Frank has been at USNAY, he has put a lot of effort in keeping Navy ' s crew tops in the nation. His record speaks for itself: plebe crew (National Champions); bat- talion crew, two years; varsity crew, three years. Frank was rewarded by an N sweater and membership in the N Club. Other favorite pastimes include enjoying fine pipes and girls. This new officer plans to specialize in submarines. We salute a great friend and companion, wishing him all of the success in his naval career that is possible. :E0 THIRD . -z - a GENE FRANCIS KISHEL Minnesota EDWIN EARL KILUNGER San Diego, California Ed hated to leave his surfboard in sunny San Diego, but most of all he hated leaving his flashy California clothes behind to the good old Jacob Reed garb. Two of his greatest pastimes were logging rack time and making friends with everyone from the plebe right on up. A close second to Ed ' s football love were his adventure- some sojourns in D. C. on weekends. Although he has had his share of trouble with the academic department, Ed has much to offer the Navy in the way of resourcefulness. After a year of college, giving up a prospective career in medicine, Gene came to the Severn as the first step in a career in the United States Marine Corps. Hailing from the land of sky blue waters and the Mesabi Range, Gene has proved a credit to the Academy and will be a welcome addition to the Corps. He has been a constant competitor on the athletic field for the Seventh while keeping his scholastic average well into the upper half. If Academy life is an indication of future success, Gene will surely have his share. WALTER RAY LAND El Reno, Oklahoma Walt entered USNA in his yellow pants, blue sport coat and sideburns and was soon surveying the entire situation with disbelief. Without too much effort, however, he became molded along with the rest and resigned himself to being right guide of the Sixth Com- pany for four years due to his lanky 6 ' 8 " frame. Although the athletic ability of Walt in the shell and on the basketball court was well known throughout the Brigade he quietly excelled in another activity. His claim of most hours spent working out on the blue trampoline cannot be disregarded. The class of ' 60 will long re- member our tall classmate as an athlete, wit, and good friend. BATTALION 151 JAMES RICHARD LANG Portsmouth, Ohio After graduating from high school in May, Rich left for USNA in June of 1956. Determined to get as much education as he could, Rich settled down to the four long years of studying that awaited him. He has fulfilled his ambition by standing in the upper one fourth of his class. Always a hard worker, Rich tries to do his best in anything he tries whether it is studies, sports or having fun. He always has a cheery hello for all and is well liked by everyone. Sum- mer training has sold Rich en Navy life and he should find many interesting billets awaiting him in the fleet. Nev ANTHONY JOHN LANZETTA Orleans, Louisiana It was a sad day for the Confederacy when Tony got the call to shed his civvies and don the blue and gold of Navy Tech. How- ever, it was not long after his arrival at the trade school that New Orleans ' loss was decidedly Navy ' s gain. He will be remembered for his sense of humor and ability to get things organized in a hurry. In addition to carrying a load on the Lucky Bag staff as associate editor, Tony was still able to find time for wrestling in the fall and winter, and Softball in the spring. Graduation will probably find him heading for those golden wings of a Navy birdman with aspirations for a career as a test pilot. SPENCER JENNINGS LEECH Greenwich, Connecticut Spence came to us from Greenwich, Connecticut. A graduate of Tabor Academy, he found the academics at USNA easy and thus was able to devote much of his time to sailing. Every afternoon Spence could be found sailing the Severn rain or shine, gaining ex- perience which stood him well in the many varsity meets in which he participated. His unusual sense of humor brightened our most dreary days and gained him many friends. A capable junior officer, he will make a good addition to the fleet. 152 THIRD Boston, WILLIAM EDWARD LEWIS, JR. Massachusetts Bill, a Navy junior, originally hails from Massachusetts. Right from the start of plebe year he demonstrated to everyone his per- severance in making the most of his four years at Crabtown U. He took academics in his stride, and with his good study habits, his grades were continually way above average. Outside of academics, Bill was the next thing to a walking Blue Jacket ' s Manual. He seemed to know as much about the Naval profession as the rest of the Brigade. After classes, Bill could be found working out in the fencing loft of MacDonough Hall. He became a strong addition to the Varsity Fencing Team for his last three years, although his time was somewhat cramped by the medical department. Thus, the Navy gains a competent officer who will go far in his field. TERRY KENT LINGLE Albuquerque, New Mexico Terry was appropriately dubbed the Eighth Company ' s Young Man with the Horn, because every minute he wasn ' t studying or working out on the blue trampoline, he could be found sitting in his chair blowing out the notes of some old favorite on his trumpet. This, his pride and joy, would sometimes hold more interest for him than a blind drag. According to Terry, however, this still remains to be seen. Music was his life in the extracurricular sense, as his four year par- ticipation in the D B Corps, the NA- 1 0, and the Antiphonal Choir shows, and as long as there is still music at O-Club parties it ' s a sure bet that he ' ll be the life of every one of them. WALTER JAMES LIPPOLD Twenty-Nine Palms, California Although this star man won ' t readily admit it, he is a native Crab. Being a Navy junior he quickly squared away on his re-arrival in Crabtown. While at the Academy, " Lip " has been very active in all varsity and intramural aquatic sports. His pleasing personality and outstanding sense of humor have won him many lifelong friends. With these attributes, he will surely go far in his Navy career. Throughout his stay at Navy Tech his motto has been " Navy Air sounds mighty fair " and we expect great things of him in this de- partment. As our last P-rade becomes history, we wish him a safe voyage and again remind him to knock off bouncing. BATTALION 153 HAROLD LEWIS LONGAKER Ross, California Hank was born in Bakersfield, California, and came to Navy directly from high school. Being an able soccer player, Hank had no trouble finding a spot on the plebe soccer team and then went on to play three years of varsity soccer. He also participated in company touch football and indoor track. Most of us will remember Hank for his avid love of sports cars and his role on the Midshipman Automobile Committee. After leaving Navy, Hank plans to go to sea and then on to submarine school at New London. ROBERT WAYNE LOWE Dayton, Kentucky With a year of college life at Purdue and a successful high school career under his belt Bob came to USNA as the first step in his Naval career. Since his brother Jim preceded Bob at the Acad- emy, life in Bancroft did not present many surprises to Bob. Not worrying about academics a great deal, Bob improved his culture by extracurricular reading while keeping in the upper fourth of the class. A constant competitor for the Seventh on the athletic field and the ability to make many good friends leaves us little doubt about Bob ' s continued success in all of his future endeavors. ROBERT JOHN MANSER Arlington, Virginia Bob has left an outstanding example for those we leave be- hind during his four years here on the banks of the Severn. His days as a Mid have been well spent. Bob ' s academic stars were matched by his activities in outside fields. Though not number one man on the varsity golf squad, he was a welcome addition to Navy ' s team. His voice was often heard on WRNV and by many of the under- classmen during their first year as Bob tried to incite in them more spirit for the Blue and Gold. Bob ' s qualities are sure to be of avail to him in his future with the new scientific Navy. 154 THIRD CLIFFORD IRWIN MARTIN Kailua, Hawaii Coming from the fleet via NAPS, Marty was known through- out the company as a squared away plebe. He has kept up his reputation for four years in both the professional and athletic aspects of academy life. His most spectacular event in athletic participation occurred in a race which he won but, as a result of which, he lost some liberty. Marty, being a member of the soccer, pistol, and brigade boxing teams, was known and liked by all. Even with his many extracurricular activities he made time to excel scholastically. This was due to the drive that characterized him, and will aid him in anything he attempts in years to come. JAMES GATELEY MAXFIELD, JR. Pasadena, California Gamblin ' Jim was sent to Annapolis from the City of Roses, Pasadena, California. He will no doubt gain posterity from the foot- ball he lived and breathed each season, contributing his all to plebe and, above all, varsity victories. Jim won letters for proficiency in both football and squash. His academic potential closely matched his athletic, but sports and sleeping inhibited his reaching the top in standing. His abilities in Bull in or out of class made him tough to defeat in any argument. Navy Line will find Maxy a valuable officer, especially if they can utilize his many unique abilities. On a four year record, it is hard to say whether Jim accumulated more girls, demerits or hours in the pad. MYREL LEROY MAXSON Butte, Montana Three years lapsed between the time Max graduated from Butte High and the time he finally matriculated at USNAY. This time was taken up by a year at Montana, a year in the fleet, and a year at NAPS. The rack took up much of his time but Max always managed to log in his share of hours on the blue trampoline. His ready wit and pleasant personality gained him many friends and will continue to do so as he makes his career in the Marine Corps. BATTALION 155 CARL PAUL McCALLUM Cincinnati, Ohio Carl came east from Ohio after a year at Culver Military Academy. His ability and versatility were omnipresent; however, his personality is best exemplified in two major categories, athletics and sociality. Having played a major role in varsity athletics in high school, Carl continued in this pattern while at the Academy. He amazed all with his extraordinary ability and knowledge of sports in general. Whether it be an intimate group or a large gathering, Carl was usually found at the lead of these social centipedes, hie has left a warm humorous glow for all those who were fortunate enough to know him. The future cannot deny success to a person who possesses such qualities and ability. CHARLES EDWARD McCASKILL, JR. Pensacola, Florida A Pensacola boy, it ' s little wonder that Mac ' s first love is Naval Aviation. Second class summer was more of a leave extension than a training period for him. His only regret was that he wasn ' t permitted to solo. Mac attended Marion Institute prior to entering USNA, consequently Crabtown weather was his only adjustment problem. Known as " Lightning " because of his Southern drawl, it was always a treat to hear Mac call chow as a plebe and recite as an upperclassman. Perhaps his greatest achievement was the invention of the McCaskillian Theory of Science — a masterpiece of scientific thinking designed to frustrate even the hardiest of profs. CALVIN RICHARD McCONNELL Aliquippa, Pennsylvania Having lived and worked on his father ' s farm near Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, for the first eighteen years of his life, hard work was no stranger to Cal McConnell. This fact is well proven by his record as a varsity football player at the Academy. Mac ' s off season ac- tivities included both fieldball and lacrosse. To supplement his quest for variety and entertainment, Cal has planned a career as a Naval aviator. To such a well-liked and sincere classmate, one can wish nothing but a happy, successful career in the Navy. 156 THIRD MILTON RANDOLPH McHENRY Flat River, Missouri From the firing of the gun, and over all of the hurdles, there was seldom any question who was in the lead. There is no doubt that Mac was one of Navy ' s finest trackmen from the undefeated plebe team through three years of varsity competition. Being active in various fields, such as Trident staff, NACA, Chapel Choir and Photo Club Mac seldom wasted spare moments. He was also an active Romeo leaving a trail of lonesome women from his home in Flat River, Missouri, to the far corners of the globe. His active spirit and fun loving attitude will ensure success in any endeavor. PAUL ANDREW McLAUGHUN Wynnewood, Pennsylvania The best advice that we ever received at USNA was not to lose our sense of humor and Paul has stuck to this throughout his four years. The times have been few and far between when Paul has not had a smile and a cheerful word for his classmates. Mac came to USNA from Pennsylvania via Villanova University. At USNA Mac was noted for his abilities on the rifle and battalion track teams. His good looks have never hindered his success with the fairer sex and many a weekend he has been seen with a grade A drag. The sub fleet will be fortunate in getting one of the Academy ' s better products when he graduates. WILLIAM WINSTON MEDARIS Memphis, Tennessee When Bill entered USNA during the summer of 1956 with his shoes thrown over his shoulder and a football tucked under his arm, little did anyone realize that during the next four years he would be best recognized for his academic achievements. When Bill gave up football his youngster year and decided to become a Casanova almost overnight he changed from a 205-pound rowdy into a 180-pound polished operator. During his second class summer Bill decided that Navy Air looked mighty fair. As Bill now begins his thirty years in the Navy, I ' m sure we will be seeing him quite often on the sunny beaches of Florida. BATTALION 157 JAY CHRISTIAN METZLER Mount Joy, Pennsylvania Jay, from Mount Joy, Pennsylvania, was another of those traditionally fine Pennsylvania athletes. He also stood in the upper third of his class in academics, his favorite subjects being skinny and math. Before coming to the Academy he spent one year at Bullis Prep. At the Academy he played plebe and varsity basketball plus plebe and varsity lacrosse. In addition to basketball and lacrosse, Jay had a lot of tennis ability. A fine student, athlete, and companion, Jay will always be remembered and will certainly gain success in his future efforts. V - 2? xjy JOHN JOSEPH MICHALSKI, JR. Union, New Jersey John started his career at Canoe U. by being laid up most of plebe summer with an injured shoulder and during this t ime he set a new Academy record for writing letters. But when academic year rolled around he gave up the correspondence and concentrated on plebe year, studies, and football. Although " Ski " was best known for his four years playing on the plebe and varsity football teams, he was also a star performer on the company Softball and fieldball teams. John enjoyed second class summer so much that after graduation he plans to spend his next year and a half earning his Navy wings of gold. GERALD FRANCIS MONTAGUE Chicago, Illinois Jerry graduated from Chicago ' s Mount Carmel High School in 1955, after which he attended Bullis Preparatory School for a year. Jerry hails from the windy city and is proud of it. Having two four year roommates, one a Jerseyite, and the other a fellow Chicagoan, resulted in many heated discussions concerning the merits of the East coast versus the Midwest. Jerry ' s athletic endeavors were cen- tered around water sports including varsity swimming and battalion water polo. His eagerness for swimming won him his varsity N. This same eagerness developed in him a pronounced aptitude for con- suming vast quantities of food. Jerry ' s many other activities included his membership in the Newman, Spanish and N Clubs. 158 THIRD GERALD ARCHIBALD NELSON Fairhope, Alabama Jerry hails from Fairhope, Alabama, a small town about forty miles from Mobile. As valedictorian of his high school class, he was honored by being selected the boy most likely to succeed. After high school Jerry entered the University of the South where he was a member of the Beta Theta Pi Fraternity. At the Academy Jerry has stood in the top ten per cent of his class. He has played intramural 150-pound football and he has been a strong sailing enthusiast. Jerry hopes to be in submarines and with his keen judgment, eagerness and sound mind it is certain that he will succeed in any task that is put before him. JAY ALLAN NEWBERN Jacksonville, Florida Although of Army stock, Jay nevertheless chose to join us four years ago in preparing for a life in the Naval Service. Always trying to improve himself and to gain a broader knowledge of the military, he went so far as to give up one summer of leave to go to Para- trooper School and earn his coveted jump wings. Jay was very active in athletics in high school and he continued this practice while at the Academy. He played varsity and plebe lacrosse and plebe football. Regardless of all these outside activities, he was always conscious of his academic responsibilities and compiled a very fine scholastic record during his duty at the Naval Academy. JACK GEORGE NEWMAN Milwaukee, Wisconsin Coming from the beer capital of Wisconsin by way of a sub- marine and Columbian Prep, Jack has at last realized his boyhood ambition of graduating from the Academy. Jack ' s love, while at the Academy, was sailing in the many ocean races. In his spare time, when he wasn ' t sailing, he could be found listening to Glenn Miller or twirling his 44 magnum revolver. Jack was kept busy answering plebe ' s professional questions as he was a wealth of information on the Navy, especially submarines. His drive and enthusiasm for every- thing he does will surely prove an asset to the submarine service. BATTALION 159 PAUL SHERIDAN NORTON North Qulncy, Massachusetts " Nort, " a native of Quincy, Massachusetts, motivated by his desire for a greater education, his aspiration to fly and his love of boating, came to the Academy after spending a year at Boston University. While at USNA, Paul has fulfilled these ambitions by making the Superintendent ' s List and writing numerous articles on aviation, winning second place in the Aeronautical Engineering Club ' s technical paper contest. His fondness of boats prompted him to letter in plebe crew and to participate in the sailing program where he made the Bermuda Race during second class summer. With his bright personality and persistency, he should go a long way in all of his future endeavors. ALAN LAWRENCE ORR Grand Rapids, Michigan " Spook " came to USNA from Grand Rapids, Michigan, having had, as many of us have, some preparatory training, but perhaps a bit more than most — two years at Aquinas College. It was probably the college life which made Al such a good one for a party. After four years of fencing, Al will feel at home with an officer ' s sword, we feel sure; and there never was the question in anyone ' s mind what type of sword it would be. For Al it will surely be Semper Fidelis. ROBERT GUY PEARCE Houston, Texas Bob typifies the easy going Texan who proclaims that Texas has the biggest and bestest of anything and everything. He was a firm advocate of dragging and managed to miss only about four weekends, in three years of dragging. Tennis also took up a great deal of his time as is evidenced by his year on the plebe team plus three years of participation on the battalion team. Looking forward to a career in the air arm of the Navy Bob plans to fly the hottest thing with wings. Speaking of ships he has to say, " They ' ll never get ' em off the ground, wings are too short. " 160 THIRD LYMAN SPENCER ABSON PERRY Easton, ' Maryland " Take her up, " was his favorite saying from plebe year when he stroked the plebe crew to the national championships through four years of varsity crew competition. This and his girl were Sal ' s greatest interests as a midshipman. Coming to USNA from the Hill School, academics were no sweat for Sal. Always ready with a smile, he has proven his ability to uphold the great naval tradition of the Perry family. Sal will always be remembered as one of Navy ' s finest oars- men and one of the most likable, modest, and yet runable of those whom we met during our four years at Navy. PEMAQUID POINT JOHN PATRICK PFOUTS Lima, Ohio John came to USNA right out of high school and kept rolling at flank speed all the way through Navy. He applied himself to the books, managing to resist working out on the blue trampoline, and devoted his afternoons to baseball and wrestling and his evenings to cutting choir practices. The proficiency " Pfoutsie " attained in Spanish stood him in good stead in Rio, and he boasts of holding the record for the most time in air-conditioned comfort for all cruises ever made by midshipmen. A very personable character, John is sure to stand out in all he does. FREDERICK EUGENE PHILLIPPI Churchland, Virginia Fred, better known as " Satch " to all of his friends, came to USNA from the Naval Academy Prep School. Being a Navy junior, Fred has traveled through most of the country, but he boasts most of Florida. He bases his good taste in women on variety and a no sweat policy. Fred has been very active at Navy as a member of the crew team and also the battalion gym team. His desire to learn has led his interests to the Radio Club. During the leisure hours of Academy life, one was sure to hear the strumming of Fred ' s uke. This led to the beginning of many a nightly jam session which brought back many happy memories to those who were a little blue. His free and easy manner brought a lot of cheer and happiness into the lives of his friends. Second class summer has definitely decided one thing for Fred. He will be joining the ranks of the Naval aviators in the summer of I960. BATTALION 161 GRANT WILLIAM PLUMMER Centralia, Washington " Butch " came to U5NAY from Centralia Junior College way up in the wilds of Washington State. A Pacific Coast Conference fan of the first degree, " Butch " was always informed as to the latest score or statistics from up that way. An ardent varsity follower and company competitor, " Butch " always was in there helping the Sixth stay on top. After surviving the rigors of plebe year, " Butch " could be found in one of three places during the rest of his free time — a movie, the golf course, or the pad. Never troubled too much by academics or femmes, Butch always had the grades and mail to prove it. A likeable guy and conscientious worker, Butch will be an asset wherever he ventures. ROBERT CARNEY POWERS Portsmouth, Virginia Bob ' s accent caused him no end of trouble with Yankee first classmen plebe year, but he stood by his native state of Virginia. He can still unleash a spine tingling rebel yell now and then. Soccer was Bobs main athletic effort while at the Academy. He spent the winters of his upperclass years talking the ears off the profs in the " Bull " department as a member of the debate team. In the spring he plied the waters of the bay with the YP Squadron. His name also appeared between the covers of the Splinter as fiction editor. After graduation Bob plans to pursue a career in the Navy. FRANCIS IRWIN PREVITE, JR. Vienna, Virginia Although Fran spent a great deal of time reading and playing soccer, he still found time for many other activities. On top of this he always found a few minutes to chalk up a little pad time. His two great loves were his hi-fi set and camera. No squawk or reverberation went unnoticed in the hi-fi, and the process of improving it was a never-ending one. The camera received nearly equal attention. Fran found numerous subjects for this interest, among which was his cur- rent drag along with unusual photographic shots. All of this and he still found time to keep his grades far above average. Fran aims for Navy Air after graduation. 162 THIRD DAVID BYRON PRUE Dunkirk, New York A warm smile and his usual display of personality enabled Dave to capture strong friendships among his classmates and fellow midshipmen. Academics proved no obstacle for this New Yorker who utilized his free time participating in sporting activities and tinkering with something new. Dave gave a good accounting of his above average abilities in company intramurals, as a brigade pugilist, and as a dancer. The Navy ' s air arm will be receiving a real sailor in every respect. As for the future, Dave has the answer himself, " What, me worry? " EVAN PRICE REESE Columbus, Ohio Coming from the Sigma Chi house at Ohio State University to the Naval Academy, " Pee Wee " Reese probably has the record number of hours spent in the space suits worn by the poolies. Evan has, through spirit and determination, plowed through some of his tough subjects, including French and " skinny. " Although not a staunch militarist, his humor and attitude have fitted in well at Navy. We can rest assured that his spark and desire to make things go will make him an eager, motivated young officer. JOHN TURNER RILEY Lebanon, Missouri A popular man on the campus, John spent the tender part of his life on the sidewalks of Chicago and then later moved to the Ozark Mountains to earn his fame. From the Sigma Pi house at Southwest Missouri State he set out for Navy. Always a real sport and remem- bered for his style of telling a funny story or his famous magical tricks, John has managed to, somehow, sacrifice many man hours of studying to drag some of Maryland ' s finest. The backbone of the company soccer teams, he will go far with his casual way and ag- gressive attitude. BATTALION 163 CARL VAUGHAN RIPA Teaneck, New Jersey New Jersey was most capably represented in the person of " Rip " at Navy. After a year at Union College as a Phi Delta, he decided that the Joe College life was not for him, and turned to Navy. A ham radio operator, he was a whiz in the " Skinny " Depart- ment. His talents didn ' t end there, however, as is shown by his standing in the upper five per cent of his class. In between singing in the Antiphonal Choir, working with the Radio Club, and building electrical equipment of his own, " Rip " managed to put in a worth- while performance with the battalion handball and lacrosse teams. His intellectual capabilities, plus those 20 100 ' s of his will put him well in line for CEC. WILLIAM MARSHALL ROARK Omaha, Nebraska One of our really good " jet jockeys " of the future may truly be Bill Roark, who hails from the Cornhusker State. In the midst of much criticism, he still contends that Pensacola was just the greatest. Throughout his four years at the Academy, Bill was very active in company sports, including steeplechase, Softball, volleyball and knock- about sailing. He also managed to do a little bit of extracurricular weight-lifting just to keep in shape. Not a bucket as far as academics were concerned, Bill managed to compile a very fine academic record for the four years. If his perseverance continues, Bill will get his Navy wings of gold and have an excellent career in that branch of the Navy. tffc Altade JOHN FRANCIS RUHSENBERGER California John is originally from Pensacola, Florida, however, his father is in the Navy and he has called many places home. John ' s father graduated from the Naval Academy, so John was ready for Academy life when he arrived here. He did very well in all of his studies and also saved some time to play plebe and battalion squash. Navy Air seems to be John ' s calling to the fleet. If he does as well in the air as he has done here, the Navy will be credited with an excellent officer and flyer. !64 THIRD h 4klftfe ROBERT RAUGHLEY RUTHERFORD Norfolk, Virginia Bob will always be remembered as one of the harder working members of the Eighth Company. As one can see from the fact that he was actively engaged in both varsity track and 150-pound football during his four years at the Academy, Bob made use of every spare moment he had. However, no matter how hard he worked, Bob always had time for a cheerful smile and a friendly word. A firm believer in a well-rounded education, he did not neglect his social life, always managing to occupy his weekends with a good-looking drag. Bob ' s aim upon graduation is the submarine service. There can be no doubt that, with his conscientiousness and affable personality he will succeed in this and every other endeavor which he undertakes in the future. LARRY EUGENE RYAN Lead, Soufh Dakota An expert with witty sayings designed to cheer up a class- mate, Larry entered the Academy right out of high school and performed above average in both academics and sports. He was a hustler and supported his company in many sports. On summer cruises to foreign countries there was never a dull moment for Larry. He also took advantage of a few summer leaves to visit other lands. For one who was a confirmed bachelor, he did a lot of dragging. He enjoyed listening to popular music in his leisure time. A true Irishman from South Dakota, Larry easily made many friends through- out the Brigade. DONALD WILSON SANDERS Elizabeth City, North Carolina A native of North Carolina, Don entered the Naval Academy after spending a year at Elon College. Above average in all respects, Don was a welcome addition to the Brigade. Being well acquainted with the military way of life after two years in the National Guard, Don began life at the Naval Academy well at ease. He took an active part in plebe and intramural athletics, especially gymnastics. Don was also well rewarded for devoting much of his time to the Glee Club, for through it he met his OAO. During his leisure time one could find him listening to records or sleeping. THIRD BATTALION 165 LAWRENCE FRANCIS SARNO Port Jervis, New York After spending two years at Newark College of Engineering and a year as a diesel locomotive fireman, Larry traded an engineer ' s cap for that of a midshipman. " Lar " entered the Academy via a Congressional appointment. Hailing from Jersey City, New Jersey, Larry brought with him a " Joisey " accent which added to his very likeable and friendly personality. From the beginning of plebe year, he became famous for his five o ' clock shadow, which had the habit of appearing about three times a day. During his free time, he could usually be found enjoying his favorite pastimes: the blue trampo- line on weekdays and dragging on weekends. FRED ROBERT SCALF, JR. Knoxville, Tennessee Bob entered the Naval Academy from the hills of Tennessee by way of the University of Tennessee. " Possum, " as he is affection- ately called by his classmates, earned this nickname from his popular column in the Splinter where he often displayed his satirical humor. Academics were never any problem for Bob and thus left him time to participate in many extra activities including yawl sailing, ham radio, battalion handball, and steeplechase. An avid letter writer and lover, he never lacked the enjoyment of attractive feminine company. After graduation, Bob hopes to make Navy Air his career and, as for the future, there is no doubt that he will make it to the top. WILLIAM ALBERT SCHROEDER III Oshkosh, Wisconsin Big Bill, as his friends called him, was always around to put in a good word for Oshkosh, by gosh, Wisconsin. Spending most of the spring throwing the javelin for Navy, the rest of Bill ' s time was taken up by intramural football, radio, models and chess. Bill ' s struggle with German kept the " Dago " Department and his wives guessing who would end up on top, but in the end das deutsch was surmounted. His determination and ability to learn kept the rest of his academics above average with time for an occasional jam session on the har- monica. The final day of Naval Academy life will mark a happy transition for Bill because he will finally be assigned his first tour of duty in the Naval Service which will justly be proud of its new officer. 166 THIRD LEE CHARLES SELIGMAN Washington, D. C. Lee came to the Naval Academy from Bullis Prep. Known to all of his friends as the " little man, " he has taken an active part in many intramural sports such as football, fieldball and sailing. Lee has had little difficulty with academics and his ability to talk his way through almost any situation has made " Bull " one of his favorite subjects. A party boy at heart, Lee will always carry with him fond memories of many wonderful liberties. Lee plans to make Navy Air his goal after graduation and we all wish him success in his career. MICHAEL ELLIOTT SHANOK New Haven, Connecticut Some people might have thought that we were getting a rather inexperienced specimen when this Connecticut Yankee took the oath at seventeen years of age, but such was not the case. Mike brought with him developed talents in music and art. His contribu- tions to the Splinter included many witty cartoons and several artistic sketches. Having played the trumpet professionally before entering USNA, Mike was well prepared to join the ranks of the Drum and Bugle Corps. Besides battalion bowling, Mike ' s special interests were hi-fi and girls. His collections of both were a tribute to years of determined activity. Mike hopes for a future in submarines but wherever he is, his great determination will ensure success. FREEMAN ROBERT SHAW, JR. Canisteo, New York After spending two years in the Marines and attaining the rank of corporal, " Free " swapped his Marine green for Navy blue via NAPS. While at the Academy he found it easier to conform to the system by instilling into the daily routine a little humor, thus enlightening the dull, bleak hours, not only for himself, but for those around him. Though he had no previous experience as a gymnast, " Free " soon became proficient on the blue trampoline. He could often be found in Smoke Hall, trying to shoot the eight ball in the side pocket. Musically talented, he sang a good bass in the Chapel Choir for four years. BATTALION 167 HOWARD LAWRENCE SIPPLE, JR. Milford, Delaware Stemming from the state of Delaware and having spent many summers on the Atlantic shore, Howard naturally took to sailing at the Academy. Diligent studying and many hours on the bay paid off in the form of a yawl command, and then during second class year he qualified for command of the Academy ' s class A yacht FREEDOM. A hard worker during the week, " Sip " always looked forward to Saturday, which usually meant drag sailing and the hops. He has chosen the submarine fleet for his career and we are sure that it is receiving a fine officer and competent seaman. GID BERNARD SMITH Clifton, Texas " Smitty, " as he was popularly known, came from the big state with big ideas. From the minute he arrived, he started working to- ward achievement of his goals. Although not a slash academically, " Smitty " used his background experience as a " fish " at Texas A M to make him an outstanding plebe. This outstanding quality con- tinued through first class year as the result of a desire to go places in the military. A good personality and outstanding personal pride characterize Gid. With a fencing background at Texas A M, he immediately took an avid interest in this sport upon arrival at Navy and pursued it throughout his four years. Regardless of what his next duty station will be, it will certainly be only a stepping stone to great things for " Smitty. " Walnut Creek, ROBERT ERNEST SMITH California " Smitty " left sunny California for the Naval Academy after having spent two and a half years as a submarine reservist. Definitely the outdoor type, for four years Bob was a driving force behind the company soccer, football and Softball teams. His hi-fi set echoed throughout the third wing except on weekends, at which times he concentrated on dragging. " Smitty " played the field and was often seen dragging a different girl every weekend, that is, when he wasn ' t out shopping for a new Navy sweater or jacket to send to his kid brother. The T2V jet flights during second class summer sold Bob on Navy Air and so he is off to Pensacola. 168 THIRD WENDELL DUANE SNELL Winfield, Kansas Wendy was raised in the farming community of Winfield, Kansas. After graduation from high school, he attended Kansas State College for a semester and then decided to enlist in the Navy. After serving one year he went to NAPS, after which, he entered the Academy. During the afternoons Wendy could be found playing football or handball and, during the evenings, studying hard. Because of his seriousness with respect to academics, he maintained himself in the upper third of his class. Wendy has made many friends at Navy, and when he goes to Pensacola for flight training, he will undoubtedly make many more. HARRIS SPERLING Newport, Rhode Island A fine library of some of the best in literature matched by a collection of good music, show the well developed serious side of Harris ' s nature. Most people know him as lighthearted, pleasant and quick of wit, but this easygoing, light manner is easily dropped for a serious and intelligent discussion. Harris has shown his athletic ability here, where he has earned the respect of those who played with and against him. The one main attribute outstanding in his personality is his willingness to listen to both sides of an argument and weigh only the facts. This attribute combined with a natural feel for leadership will carry him a long way in life. WILLIAM CLIFFORD STENSLAND San Antonio, Texas Few midshipmen have been afforded the opportunity to travel and acquire the sophistication which accompanies it as Bill Stensland. The son of an Army officer, Bill has spent time in various parts of the United States and Germany. He now resides in San Antonio, Texas. Although Bill came to the Academy directly from high school, he has worn stars since plebe year. Busy afternoons have found Bill in the handball courts, the boxing ring, and the swimming pool for both varsity and intramural sports. From each of Bill ' s many good friends comes a hearty good luck for the years to come. BATTALION 169 Tampa, JEWEL JACKSON SUDDATH, JR. Florida After a year at Columbian Prep, the pride of Tampa ' s Pilant High came to USNAY. Having little trouble with the academics, Jack devoted the better part of his time to crew, tennis, and the fairer sex. With the pitfalls of a plebe year romance ringing in his ears he decided that the field was a much safer place to play. With his ability to mix hard work with an easygoing good humor, Jack will have little trouble at Pensacola or in the fleet. HAROLD DAYTON SULLIVAN Cleveland, Ohio Hal, better known to his buddies as " Henchy, " hails from Cleveland, Ohio, where he spent a year in the Marine Reserve while making a name for himself in sports at Mayfield High. Prior to en- tering the Academy, Hal anchored the football team at Columbian Prep and then came to Navy to be the utility man of the poolies here at the Academy. The urge of the pad was usually more irresistible to Hal than was the urge of the books. However, his academic average was never in jeopardy. Hal ' s plans for the future include a commission in the Marine Corps and the resulting duty at Quantico. With the ambition and drive that Hal possesses, he can be no less than a real success in all of his future endeavors. PATRICK HENRY SULLIVAN Freeport, New York Pat ' s easygoing personality made him many friends at Canoe U. His participation in battalion sports, Choir and Musical Club Shows made his presence known throughout the Brigade. Pat was one of the top men in the company as could be attested by his many calls to represent us in such activities as the Ring Dance Committee, Trident calendar staff and the Automobile Committee. Pat was pretty good with the books but found that Goren was more Greek than a Skinny " final. Pat ' s future? Navy Line all the way. 170 THIRD JON ELDEN SURRATT Sterling, Illinois Jon came to the Academy via NAPS and the Marines. He quickly caught onto the system. However, his major complaint about life on the Severn was the academic part of the week, which kept interrupting his weekend card games. When not engaged in a hot poker game, he could be found in the sack reading anything not academic. But whenever the need arose to put on the pressure with the studies, he surprised even himself. Jon ' s unfailing ability to sur- mount whatever obstacles confront him will assure him his well- deserved success. WARREN EDWARDS SWEETSER III Marsh-field Hills, Massachusetts Skip ' ' calls Massachusetts his home grounds but, being a Marine junior, the west and east coasts could both be his real home locale. Coming to the Academy via Citadel and, before that, a military high school, he found getting organized no problem, as far as the Academy system was concerned. Academics, however, were a different question. His hate of German and math are not soon to be equalled. This hate did not include athletics, however, since Skip managed to pull an oar in the first boat of Navy ' s crew for three years. If all goes as planned after graduation he will head for Quantico and, after that, to Pensacola to add some wings of gold to his Marine green. Where he will go from there is hard to say, but with his spirit and beaming personality he will be a welcome addition to any outfit. THOMAS WILLIAM TAYLOR Collingswood, New Jersey Tom, the third of his family to attend the Academy, was a 1955 graduate of Collingswood High School in New Jersey after which he attended Bullis Preparatory School for a year. He was known throughout the Second Battalion as a vocalist of merit during his plebe year, due to the fact that he had tremendous difficulty in mas- tering " Row Row Your Boat. ' ' He was fated to live with two Chi- cagoans for four years and was ' often forced to defend his state and the East coast in general. Tom, when not playing halfback for the battalion team or pumping in points for the company basketball team, could usually be found in his office flat on his back. Besides his sporting activities he found time to be an active member in the Newman and Photo Clubs. BATTALION 171 WILLIAM ERQUIST TAYLOR Birmingham, Alabama Willie came to USNA from Birmingham, Alabama, after at- tending Marion Military Institute for three years and completing one year at the University of Alabama. With this background, which in- cludes four years of ROTC training, Willie was more than adequately prepared to begin the military way of life at the Academy, and through these past four years he has demonstrated an above average aptitude for the service. Preferring the contact sports, Willie has participated in plebe lacrosse, battalion football as well as company field ba II and Softball. In each, he has displayed an earnest desire to do his best. After graduation, Willie hopes to begin flight training at Pensacola. Because of his keen personality and integrity we feel that he will be successful in whatever he endeavors to do. ROBERT LELAND TOWLE Belleville, New Jersey This slender smiling redhead was born in Beverly, Massachusetts, but he calls Belleville, New Jersey, his home. Bob came to the Academy straight from Belleville High School, where he rowed crew. Taking ad- vantage of this high school experience, Bob made the one hundred and fifty pound crew team plebe year. Bob also spends some time in the Photo Club darkroom where he pursues one of his hobbies, pho- tography. Bob, better known to his friends as Wedge, plans on a career in Navy Line. He has given a lot of thought to submarines, and since his summer submarine cruise, leans in that direction. RICHARD MICHAEL TRESEDER Socorro, New Mexico " Miguel " Treseder hails from a sleepy little Mexican village on the banks of the Rio Grande, Socorro, New Mexico. He is a strong believer that religion makes for a better officer. After graduation, Michael is anxious to take on the responsibilities and honor of the Marine Corps. A supplementary motive might be his susceptibility to motion sickness. While at the Academy, Mike ' s sport was crew. His ardent work in the plebe and junior varsity crews was climaxed by attaining his goal of rowing in the varsity boat. Sleep and a flock of young ladies accounted for the majority of Michael ' s spare time. 172 THIRD I ROBERT CARY WALKER Onset, Massachusetts A happy smile and a sly remark always typified Bob. A real gentleman who, with his quiet manner, makes friends easily. His New England way of speaking has revolutionized age old Navy terminology, not to mention the " Dago " department. During his four years sailing and sleeping were his favorite hobbies, maintaining that he had to date every girl in the U. S. before he would even think of choosing an OAO. His future plans are bachelorhood and a continuation of his studies in engineering. Bob is aiming for the post of Superinten- dent of the Naval Academy so that he can have a reg book burning party one day. SIBLEY LOGAN WARD III Coronado, California Hailing from Coronado, California, " Chief " has an enviable record through four years at the Academy. " Chief " didn ' t have to worry about passing as he was a permanent member of the Superin- tendent ' s List. A stiff workout on the parallel bars every afternoon during the past four years speaks for his gymnastic ability. In the way of extracurricular activities, " Chief " was a four year member of the Antiphonal Choir and the Log Staff. Entertaining a fervent desire to become a submariner, " Chief " will undoubtedly add his name to the long list of unforgettable sub skippers. We all join in wishing the best of luck in everything to a wonderful person. i LARRY WAYNE WATERMAN Celina, Ohio A true Buckeye, Larry came to the Academy following gradu- ation from high school in Celina, Ohio. Larry has proven time and again that CHS grads have what it takes to be a success at Navy, for since that first big day in June ' 56 he has maintained a high academic average in addition to participating in such sports as bat- talion football, water polo, and swimming, and compahy volleyball. Being a very ambitious type, he also found time to be the manager of the varsity swimming team and bolster the baritone section of the Glee Club and Protestant Chapel Choir. Larry is looking towards a career in the undersea branch of the Navy. ' : - BATTALION 173 GEORGE ROLAND WEEKS Vallejo, California During big George ' s four year tenure at the boat school he has been a mainstay in the old Navy school of thought of " wooden ships and iron men. " A staunch believer in plebe year, George left his mark on the company ' s underclasses. As a " tin can " sailor from the start, George did more than his part for Naval Academy athletics and was noted for his fast ball on the baseball diamond. Though in the modern Navy our iron man is not likely to encounter many wooden ships, he plans his future in Navy Line. dkfa JOHN FRANCIS WHELAN, JR. Abington, Massachusetts John was already an old salt before arriving at the Ensign factory, having entered from the Naval Academy Prep School after two years of dry land sailing. Hailing from Massachusetts, John ' s biggest problem throughout the four years was learning to speak the English language so that his non Bay State friends could understand him. His athletic prowess has been devoted to company steeplechase, cross-country and battalion track. John ' s even disposition, astute thinking and devotion to the service will render him an invaluable member of the Silent Service. L MARSHALL REDFIELD WILLENBUCHER Bethesda, Maryland Never a sweater, " Willie " pulled his four years at USNA by just crossing each bridge as he came to it. If he ever made one plan a week in advance, it was known to himself and no one else. When he wasn ' t thinking about dragging, Will was usually short circuited inside someone ' s hi-fi set or over working with the Juice Gang. For a while he was seriously contemplating placing a neon radio repair sign over his door. During second class summer " Willie " found his field; and from the air, the sky is the only limit. 174 THIRD ■ ALAN KENNETH WILLIAMS Arlington Heights, Illinois Al was one of those gifted individuals who could convince anyone that blue Monday was a holiday. He had an air of confidence and cheerfulness about him that made one glad to know him. Worry was simply not in his vocabulary; this lad could handle anything that he encountered because he had a good attitude and a desire to do everything to the best of his ability. During athletic periods and on the weekends during crew season Al could be seen as one of the huskies pulling a shell up and down the Severn River. His free time was spent in the pad when he wasn ' t dragging. Dragging, however, was one of his pet pastimes. This was evident from the great volume of mail that he received from females from all parts of the East. Al will no doubt find a successful future career in Naval Aviation. DAVID CROW WILLIAMS Springfield, Missouri Dave came to us from his favorite spot in the world, the Ozark Mountains. Having had a year of college at the University of Missouri, where he was a Beta Theta Pi, he found the toughest rigors of plebe year to be the loss of his freedom to hunt and fish. How- ever, he was able to fill this vacancy with his two other hobbies, amateur radio and weightlifting. Studies were very important to the " White Man " and he applied a great deal of effort in the academic fields. In true Navy fashion he also managed to have at least one girl here, at home, and in all of the various cruise ports. WILLIAM OLIVER WILSON Redding, California Will came to us from Yuba Junior College via a short hitch in the Navy and NAPS. Coming from the fleet, Will ' s ideas about service life were slightly different from what he encountered, but he soon became reconciled to the plebe system. Bill ' s pet peeve has been marching in general, and P-rades and extra duty in particular. He enjoyed the cruises during the summer and always looked forward to those annual thirty days ' leave. Although he never starred, he always managed to come up with the rent when the academic de- partments called for it. Bill ' s quick thinking and perseverance should prove a boon to both himself and the Navy in his career. BATTALION 175 CARLOS LEO ASUSTIN, JR. Quezon City, Philippines - Iced why he chose to come to Annapolis, Charlie would, with no hesitation, say, " For the experience. ' Born in pre-war Manila, he brought tales of thrilling occurrences of World War II days to the Academy. His father, an army officer, was killed in Bataan. He had the unusual experience of being torpedoed by a U. S. submarine. Here at Navy Charlie has developed a keen interest in sailing KA ' s and yawls, and with three years in varsity dinghies, he hopes to help foster interest in sailing in the Philippines. A bantamweight, he was also one of our wrestlers. Kept busy by the Log, Trident Calendar, Photo and Boat Clubs and the Ring Committee, he was, besides, a member of the Catholic Choir. Of women, Charlie follows his firstie ' s -eyre no darn good, but tough to be without. " J 1 V JAMES WARREN ALLEN Centerville, Iowa Jim, a native of the Corn State, came to Canoe U. by way of the State University of Iowa. Though he didn ' t star aca- demically, Jim never had much trouble handling the curve balls of the various departments. When he wasn ' t busy running plebes, he was busy running for the company steeplechase and soccer teams. In his spare moments Jim managed to play in the Midshipman Concert Band and maintain a very lively correspondence with a certain young lady from Illinois. Jim is destined for a career in Navy Line and plans to spend his future in the Silent Service. WILLIAM EDWARD BABIASH Green Bay, Wisconsin From the shores of Green Bay. Wisconsin, came Bil Bab, ' Babiash. Prior to coming to the Academy E •■ o years at Marquette University and one year in the fleet. Alway: go, Bill was a great asset to the Make-Up Gang and spent n his afternoons sailing the Severn with battalion and company teams. Since he has two months of submarine service behind him, the Silent Service will gain another competent officer. Bill will always be re- membered for his never-ending effort ana mile. FOURTH BATTALION 177 GARY CARL BAGNARD Long Beach, California Being a long way from the sunny shores of California, " Spar- row Bagnard " was out to take Navy by storm. He was not known as a squared away plebe, but he did manage to arouse the interest of a couple of coaches. Gary ' s favorites upon arrival included Cali- fornia, Elvis, ice cream, and sports, in that order. Finding a drag for Gary was not easy, since a girl with a good jump shot is hard to come by. A seagoing man at heart, every day of every leave was spent at Huntington Beach with his custom made surf board. Gary ' s achievements took the form of varsity letters in basketball and base- ball, and the Superintendent ' s List nearly every semester. To quote this smooth faced mid. " What, get out of the Navy and go to work! Never! " STEVE ROBERT BALASH, JR. Smith-field, Ohio Steve, better known as " Mush, " began his service career when he enlisted in the Navy just after graduating from Smithfield High School. He attended the Nava! Academy Prep School at Bainbridge, Maryland, and entered the Naval Academy in June of 1956. Since then, Steve ' s biggest problem was deciding which girl to drag to a football game or dance. After a long and tedious process of elimina- tion, he usually began the weekends with not more than three young ladies arriving to receive his undivided attention. Surprisingly enough, each of the girls left feeling she was " the one. " " How do you do it, Steve? " Steve ' s future shipmates in the fleet will find him an amiable and capable officer. JAMES CARLIN BEAM Fort Myers Beach, Florida From the sunny state of Florida comes this confirmed rebel. During his stay, he proved to everyone that even the sandblowers can do big things. His many activities included three years of showing the crew team who was loudest and many a picture for the Splinter and Lucky Bag. As a Marine junior, Jim came to the Academy with a little more than a dozen states as former homes. According to the best sources, his favorite pastimes have been writing letters, photog- raphy, fishing, and water-skiing. The future will find Jim Naval Aviation bound and surely one of the top officers of the Fleet. ' 73 FOURTH ROBERT GLENN BENGSTON Newport, Rhode Island " Benqer " came to the Academy from Severn Prep School. He took an active part in many activities, one of which was becoming an indispensable member of the varsity tennis squad. In addition to extracurricular activities, " Benqer " will be best remembered for his ready smile, easyqoinq manner, and his tenacious approach to academics. The fact that Bob never accepted anythinq less than perfection in anythinq he attempted soon attracted the admiration of the people who worked with him. " Benqer " plans to follow his family tradition and wear the " Winqs of Gold " of a Navy pilot. His winninq spirit will make him more than a match for anything in the future. Good sailinq, Bob! PEMAQUIO POINT PERRY SOUTHALL BENSON Alexandria, Virginia The only person who ever qave Perry any trouble was a biq fellow named " Daqo, " but he soon cut that academic villain down to size. He was never a man to challenge at the game of heaving verbal blasts; anyone not quick of wit was likely to be left holdinq an empty pair of reins. Women posed no problem to his many talents, for he could seeminqly take them or leave them, while they found him hard to resist. He was one of the few who could claim two companies, but whether it was the Thirteenth or the Eiqhteenth Company, he was warmly welcomed, and the fleet will be no exception. FRANK LESLIE BESSENGER, JR. Dade City, Florida Little did Bess realize when he came to Annapolis that his new position would be judqe of the famed " Sweat Room. " His crates of Florida oranqes helped many of us stave off those afternoon hunqer panqs. He was endowed with a dual personality, and his quiet manner durinq study hour could do an about face whenever there was opportunity for a frolic or a fray. He will be best remembered as coxswain of one of the Briqade ' s finest Knockabout crews. He also did a fine job as an outstandinq member of the battalion handball team. Frank ' s many abilities will qive him a prominent place in the Navy of the future. BATTALION 179 ALFRED HERMAN BIVENS Burr Oak, Michigan Following his graduation from high school, Biv worked as a lithographer before his arrival at the " Severn School for Seafarers. " Two years in the Marine Reserve put Biv in the category of being a " Marine green " enthusiast, which caused him to shudder every time the " Marine Corps Hymn " was sung to the tune of " Clementine. " His athletic ability was made obvious by his fine performances on the company soccer and football teams. It was on the athletic field that Al, usually quiet and unassuming, made his presence felt. Al ' s biggest battle wasn ' t fought on the athletic field, however, but in keeping that necessary step ahead of the academic departments. ISAAC FRANCIS BONIFAY, JR. Baton Rouge, Louisiana After passing up an appointment to West Point in favor of one for Annapolis, this well traveled Army brat found the Navy en- vironment much to his liking. After a siege with Math, the academics were all in his favor. Buck had a wide variety of interests. He was a stalwart of the company volleyball and basketball teams. Music was his favorite pastime, and he was a member of the Chapel Choir and the Glee Club. While he fought a losing battle against his re- ceding hairline, Buck ' s congenial nature and enthusiastic leadership won him a host of friends throughout the Brigade and should make his service career outstanding. RONALD J. BOOTH Long Beach, California Ron, a Navy junior, came to us from Long Beach, California, and proved himself a worthy member of the Brigade. He was active in the Math and Foreign Relations Clubs and participated in the Ad- vanced Science Seminar. Through diligent application of his talents and unrelenting determination, Ron has excelled in scholastics. Ap- plying this same vigor to swimming, he was a member of the varsity and plebe swimming teams, specializing in the backstroke. He also used this prowess to good advantage for the battalion water polo team for four years, being elected to the All-Brigade water polo team. Only good fortune and smooth sailing are due Ron, who has so unselfishly given of his time and efforts to the Academy and the Navy. 180 FOURTH ROBERT JAMES BOWMAN Cleona, Pennsylvania After his graduation from Lebanon High in Pennsylvania and a semester of college, Bob entered the Brigade of Midshipmen by way of a Naval Reserve appointment. With his rather quiet nature, Bob is the steady, reliable type who gets the job done. In athletics he shunned the radiator squad and became a steady contender in the intramural program. He is blessed with a deep bass voice, and his singing has ranged from impromptu singing groups to four years in the Academy Chapel Choir. His preference is Navy and he is lean- ing toward a career in this service. tfe l JM ANTHONY CHARLES BRENNAN St. Louis, Missouri A familiar face over Nineteenth Company way was that of Anthony Charles Brennan, better known as Tony to his classmates. Hailing from St. Louis, Missouri, Tony attended St. Louis University and Columbian Prep in Washington, D. C, before embarking on his naval career at USNA. Having chosen Navy Line as his specific profession, he hopes to, someday, take command of one of the boats in Uncle Sam ' s submarine fleet. Tony ' s major contribution to Academy life was in the athletic vein, having spent his spare time during all the past four years on the football field. Although we may forget many things about the Academy, those that knew him won ' t forget Tony. ,«! the JOHN COZINE BROACH San Antonio, Texas Coming to us from the sunny plains of South Texas, Jay could never quite get used to the cold Annapolis winters. However, even cold weather failed to dampen his sense of humor. With Jay it was a running battle between him and that popular periodical, the Execu- tive Form 2, which resulted in a couple of prolonged tours at the Main Office during youngster year. His spare time was usually spent pointing a camera at all subjects from football games to pretty girls or working in the Log photographic darkroom. Jay plans to go into submarines and we know he will be a capable addition to any sub- marine skipper ' s wardroom. BATTALION 181 JOHN LAWRENCE BROCKMAN, JR. Baltimore, Maryland Being a native of Baltimore, Jack was always on call for one of his Baltimore belles, and while attending many hops, he was seldom seen with the same girl two times in a row. Math and Skinny posed no problem for him, but Dago or Bull could always wipe the smile off his face. Jack was right at home in the squash courts in Bancroft Hall during his spare moments. Jack ' s enthusiasm for sailing was highlighted by a Newport to Bermuda race which he will always re- member. Followin his fancy for the sea, he has chosen Navy line and has an eye on submarines. RICHARD STEVEN BURGESS Arlington, Virginia Dick, a firm believer in the finer things of life, came to Navy by way of Bui lis Prep. He liked sports cars and parties with the proper portions of wine, women, and song. Dick graduated with the single honor of having attended more " flicks " during his years at USNA than any two people since the class of ' 45. His constant determination to accomplish his objective will lead him to success in his chosen field. Dick ' s pleasant, cheerful way of getting along with others won him many friends at the Academy and will continue to do so long after he trades his anchors for wings of gold. T EUGENE SCOTT BURROUGHS III Hughesville, Maryland Eugene Scott Burroughs, III, who is known to everyone as Gene, came to the Academy from Hughesville, Maryland, after attending Bui lis Prep School for one year. Always cheerful, with a ready smile and a quick laugh, he provided constant amusement. He escorted visiting teams often as a member of the Reception Committee, and he was also in the Newman Club. He excelled at company and bat- talion soccer and played company football, Softball, and steeple- chase. His future looks very bright in the Aviation branch of the Navy. 182 FOURTH JOHN PATRICK CECIL Spartanburg, South Carolina After spending two taut years at Swanee Military Academy, Pat came to Navy and smiled his way through plebe year. Pat ' s contribution to the " sweat room " was his indefatigable ability to argue. " Cece " also put some hard hours in on the plebe and varsity swimming teams during his rollicking four years here. His good nature and beaming smile have proven to be his major assets. In the future, " Cece " hopes to find himself at Pensacola, earning a pair of those long awaited Navy wings of gold. JOSE CHAVEZ El Paso, Texas Quiet and unassuming " Chico " has had, for four years, a favorable and steadying effect on everyone who came in contact with him. Coming out of the fleet, via NAPS, " Chico " has neglected none of the possibilities for making himself known at the Academy. As secretary of the class, he has been responsible for the adminis- tration of the class of I960 — not a small task. Yet, his biggest prob- lem here in four years has been finding enough space on his B-robe to accommodate all his letter awards. Small in stature, " Chico " has shown all of us how really big a man can get in every other way. Beacon, THOMAS ANTHONY CICCONE, JR. New York " Chick " came to Annapolis after a year of engineering study at Brown University. With him he brought a sense of humor and the desire to do a good job. Tom was always eager to find a new female acquaintance, and though not an Astaire on the dance floor, he managed, nevertheless, to make a fine accounting of himself. He lent himself to his studies very laboriously, Math being his best and Bull his nemesis. Athletically, he provided his company ' s 150-pound football team with a scrapper, and managed the plebe and varsity tennis teams. After a brief introduction to submarines during second class summer, Tom decided that the life of the undersea warrior was for him. BATTALION 183 JOSEPH DEMMITT COLE Akron, Ohio From the day " Douge " landed at the Academy, throughout his four years here, he was rich in the virtues that make a good naval officer. Because he stood near the top of his class every year, it was a known fact that he had the only slide rule in existence that had all the right answers. Not meaning to slight his intelligence, Joe is remembered most for his Mom ' s cookies and as a man who was always ready for any scheme that might be good for a laugh. Al- though his roommates did their best to bring him down to their level in academics, it backfired, and he brought them up toward his. CHARLES VERNON COLLINS Crown Point, Indiana From Crown Point, as Indiana ' s gift to the Naval Academy, Chuck immediately made a reputation for himself as a dependable hard worker and as a good man to have as a friend. The " Snake " was always a man to be wary of on the hardwood and the gridiron. In addition to his athletic abilities, Chuck was a good student, recog- nized by all as an excellent leader as is evidenced by the fact that his classmates elected him as their company representative. Because of all the desirable qualities he displays, Chuck is a sure bet for success. JEANLOUP ROBERT COMBEMALE New York City, New York This hard fighting, fast loving Frenchman is an excellent example of the good material the U. S. has attracted to its shores. With previous knowledge obtained from courses taken at Amherst College, and MIT, and as a member of the fleet, he has excelled in the majority of the courses offered at the Academy. Because of his knowledge of unlimited subjects and the vast amount of reading he has done, his abilities were recognized by the Splinter and Log. During the past three years he has been one of the men who has contributed much to their development and interesting articles. The fleet will be fortunate to receive such a talented man. 184 FOURTH CHARLES HUNTER CRIGLER Starkville, Mississippi " Crigler, come here! " Still echoing through the halls till gradu- ation day was this never-to-be-forgotten distress call for Mississippi ' s most excitable representative at Navy. Charlie or Chuck, as you prefer, was most efficient when disturbed, for then he could spill out more deliciously southern drawled words than any one of us could absorb, even enough to discourage any would-be verbal antagonist. Charlie put this talent to good use as well, and got his greatest thrill from cheerleading at football games and pep rallies both plebe and youngster years. Although Chuck would make a very fine politician, we know that the Navy won ' t be disappointed with an equally efficient officer. WALTER SALVADOR CUMELLA Alexandria, Louisiana Wally hails from Alexandria, Louisiana, and like all southern gentlemen, hell swear over a plate of grits and black-eyed peas that there ' s nothing better than southern cooking, s outhern belles, and New Orleans. Wally ' s most obvious asset was his booming baritone voice, as it played a major role in his activities, in everything from barking commands on Worden Field to hitting high " C " with the Catholic Choir. Wally indulged in a host of extracurricular activities and, each year, tried to squeeze a few more into an already crowded schedule. But of all these activities, Wally ' s first love was sailing the " Royono, " and his proudest accomplishment was the attainment of his command. Wally intends to stake his future in subs, but whatever he does, you can be certain it will be a |ob well done. DONNIE LEN DARROW Lebanon, Missouri The " man from Missouri, " Don has for four years twisted the " show me " motto into showing us just how much one man can ac- complish during his stay here. Never very talkative, when he said something it was listened to and acted upon. The people who will miss him most are the track coaches and fans. For four years as Navy ' s outstanding quarter-miler and mainstay of the mile-relay team, Don has brought in one victory after another for the Blue and Gold. As he goes into the Marines, we hope they can realize how much of a man they are getting. BATTALION 185 WILLIAM GEORGE DAVIDSON III Fontainbleau, France Bill came to Annapolis soon after graduating from Culver Mili- tary Academy in Indiana. With this background, plebe year wasn ' t too great a shock to him, and his easygoing nature carried him over most obstacles, not only in the first, but all four years at Navy. Easy- going, however, could not describe his attitude in the stroke seat of his lightweight crew shell. Bill will long be remembered for the cheer- ful greeting he had for everyone and for his earnest desire to make everyone ' s problems his own. RICHARD BARRY DAVIS Lakeport, New Hampshire Out of the beautiful lake region of New Hampshire came Lakeport ' s favorite son, Dick Davis. Although quiet and reserved, Dick never managed to let Navy Tech baffle him completely. From among his many and varied attributes he charmed us with tuba play- ing and amazed us with his wings of Mercury on the track. Whenever the weekend rolled around he could usually be found with a good- looking girl on his arm. A good sense of humor and a genuine loyalty to USNA made it possible for Dick to enjoy his four-year stay. RICHARD EATON DODSON Melbourne Beach, Florida After a short tour of duty at the University of Maryland, Dick decided to come to the Trade School on the Severn. He immediately displayed his leadership qualities by becoming the company represent- ative of his plebe class. However, his leadership capabilities were one among many of his Academy successes. Dick was a firm supporter of a sturdy athletic program, and his desire and will to win were a great asset to many a company team. He professed to be a master at tennis, as he proved on many of the battalion championship teams, but he also excelled in squash and the never-to-be-forgotten Turkey Bowl games. Extracurricular activities constitute a major portion of a mid ' s daily routine and the " Dodsone " was no exception to this rule. Hop Com- mittees, Reception Committee, and WRNV were only a small portion of his many achievements. After a successful career at USNA he only hopes to follow in the footsteps of his father, who retired after a rewarding and distinguished career. 186 FOURTH GEORGE WASHINGTON DOWELL III Wichita, Kansas With camera in hand, George came to the gay, carefree campus on the Severn via Bullis Prep. Plebe year was a high hurdle to George, whose ready laugh kept him in ten sets of sweat gear. Despite this athletic prowess, he managed to lead the Swimming Sub Squad through nine months of near drowning. Studies came easy to George, which gave him plenty of time for his favorite endeavor, the Just resting my eyes, " he would reply. After building Hi-Fi sets, making radio controlled models, and taking his expert photo- graphs. George still found time to apply his broad knowledge to solving everyone s problems. His winning smile and readiness to lend a hand will make George a big success in all he does. ROBERT ANTHONY DROPP Milwaukee, Wisconsin Tony, or Bob, as most of us know him, may not have, aca- demically, left his mark at the Nav al Academy, but he did leave it socially. Being a firm believer in the Navy adage, " A girl in every port, " Bob took distinct advantage of cruise, plebe tea hops, and was never seen alone on weekends. Also a tenacious worker in every- thing he set out to do, Bob was outstanding in company athletics and always tried to better himself academically. Yet he was never too busy to help others. This unique combination will be an asset to the flee-. JAMES INSLEY DUDLEY, JR. Hagerstown, Maryland Jim came to the Academy well prepared to cope with any- thing it could hand him. Two years at Hagerstown Junior College made the academics seem easy, while a calm and mature personality enabled him to weather plebe year and all the other little Unpleasant- ries associated with the conversion to a military way of life. Most of Jim ' s spare time was filled by his work on the Naval Academy Chris- tian Association Council, an organization in which he took an active part. After graduation Jim plans a career in Naval Aviation, the fulfillment of a long standing ambition. BATTALION 187 EDWARD HARRY DUGGAN Brooklyn, New York The Moose, " one of the younger members of the Class of I960, hails from Brooklyn, New York, To prove age does not matter, Edward became one of the most respected and skilled members of our class. Although not a varsity letter winner, he could always be found on the basketball court or the gridiron. Extremely versatile, Edward was above average in both academics and aptitude, and be- cause of his remarkable sense of humor was always popular with the members of all classes. A member of the 18th Company, Edward proved himself a leader, and his past accomplishments insure a brilliant future. BERNARD EARL EBERLEIN Tulsa, Oklahoma From the hills of Korea, via the shores of the Susquehanna, came the " Rotund One. " Although Bernie was known for his many undertakings, he probably was most famous for his successful battle with the Math department. Bernie was often heard to say, " You don ' t have to be good in math to be a good marine. " Always ready for a bridge or basketball game, his motto was, " Never do today what you can put off until the study period before class tomorrow. " In spite of the rough road, Bernie was significantly active in company sports, and because of his competitive spirit, there is no doubt that he will be a credit to his chosen service. JAMES ROBERT EVANS Weatherly, Pennsylvania This agreeable Pennsylvanian, having attended Penn State University for a year, came to the Naval Academy with one purpose in mind: to do well and eventually become a naval aviator. His academic accomplishments have been outstanding, his participation as a member of the Chapel Choir and Glee Club have made him an asset to both organizations, and his athletic abilities have brought his company many points. Who can deny that Jim has done well and that he will become an excellent aviator? Penn State, your loss was Navy ' s gain! 188 FOURTH I 4 JEROME JOHN FEE Norfolk, Virginia The Little Admiral " from Bremerton, Washington, came to Navy straight from a number one standing at Norfolk Academy High School. It was immediately evident that academics would prove no problem to Jerry, and by the end of his first year he easily made the Superintendent ' s List. His unlimited knowledge of Navy facts and baseball proved a sharp foil to the rapid fire guestions of the upper- class during plebe year. In addition to absorbing the necessary knowledge for his chosen career, he acguired a varied number of nicknames among which the most prominent were " Captain Jack " and " Freddy Fee. " Captain Jack was the serious aspirant to a naval career. Freddy Fee was the popular, hard-charging regular on the company soccer, Softball, and steeplechase teams. Among his extra- curricular activities was his work with the Lucky Bag as the company representative. WILLIAM HENRY FOLEY, JR. Cranston, Rhode Island Though quiet and mild mannered in appearance, Bill proved to be an engaging conversationalist and true friend. A master at repartee, Bill was always ready with a retort or some sound advice, whichever was more appropriate. Academics were no problem to the man from Rhode Island, and many a night was spent in a good healthy bull session rather than at the books. Holding any physical effort in utter disdain, Bill nevertheless managed to turn in a credit- able record as a miler on the battalion track squad, much to the consternation of his associates. Now, after a short tenure on the banks of the Severn, Bill will turn his talents toward a naval career. DON JOAQUIN FROST Wilmington, North Carolina " Frosty, " as he was affectionately called by all, was one of the better known men in the Brigade. Not only did he have all of the qualities of a southern gentleman from Wilmington, North Carolina, but he also had the distinction of being the smallest man in our class. He may have been small but only in stature. Entering the Academy at the age of twenty one, Don had one and a half years at the University of Oklahoma behind him. This was a great aid in his four strenuous years of study. Even so he was still able to devote time to crew, batfalion wrestling, softball and four years as company Log representative. BATTALION 189 DAVID PIERRE GAUTHIER Cincinnati, Ohio Dave came to USNA directly from St. Xavier High School and has maintained very good grades throughout his four years here. While at USNA Dave was very active in company and battalion sports, especially football. On both battalion and company heavies, he was first string quarterback. Almost all of Dave ' s spare time was spent at the bridge table, as he was an accomplished player and a sincere devotee of Charles Goren. Dave was pretty sure that he wanted to fly from the first, and the month he spent at Jax and Pensacola during second class summer made his decision to go Navy Air final. GEORGE ALPHONSUS GOULD III Glenwood, Maryland From St. John ' s Military Academy came George, an A rmy brat. His quick wit, good nature, and sincerity won him many friends while at the Academy. He never let anything upset him, and he al- ways had a good sense of humor. George ' s special field of interest was world affairs, and his favorite subject — Bull. He participated in intramural swimming during quite a few sports seasons. George ' s vision was slightly impaired during his four years of studying, so he has chosen the Supply Corps. His fellow officers will definitely ap- preciate George as much as his classmates did. WILLIAM CLARK HAMILTON Baton Rouge, Louisiana After spending most of his life in the bottom half of the United States, Bill arrived at Navy fresh from high school to face the rigors of preparing for a Naval career. He confined his athletic abilities to intramural football, and when he wasn ' t pursuing this ac- tivity he could be found in his rack figuring the daily tally of Hamilton vs Navy. Bill always preferred the southern type girl to the northern ones, and one of them will undoubtedly end his single days. Bill ' s warm personality and determination helped him to stand high aca- demically and won him many friends. His interest in Navy Air will surely give Bill a worthwhile career. 190 FOURTH ROGER GERALD HAMM Los Angeles, California Rog arrived at USNA after a year of military prep school, so plebe year offered no initial problem. At one time he played the role of an ardent " hot rodder, but Navy domesticated him so much that he was an easy mark for certain members of the opposite sex. Rog was a big man in more ways than one and could always be seen on fields of competition where body contact was the important role. If he leads his destroyer like he played soccer and fieldball, he ' ll never be accused of timidity. His deeds spoke loudly, but his words were few and far between. When he did speak, however, those who knew him listened for they realized he meant what he said. % WILLIAM DAYTON HARRISON Greenwood, South Carolina Bill is one of the few guys who can put out almost as much effort perfecting card games and tricks as he does on his studies, and still keep good grades. He specializes in professional courses, all of which he really loves. Of course he has other loves, too. Two of the foremost are having a good time with the plebes and trying to con- vince himself that he is a confirmed bachelor. His quick thinking and love for flying should make him an excellent candidate for Navy Air, his true military aspiration. PAUL CARLETON HAZUCHA Upper Nyack, New York " Zuch " entered the Academy two days after graduating from Nyack High School in New York. The lack of prep schooling was no hindrance to him. Consequently, academics never constituted a serious obstacle. During the fall he could be found managing the varsity soccer team, and the spring would find him as a member of the battalion soccer team. Paul ' s cheerful disposition never failed to make a hit with the girls. Paul undoubtedly set some sort of record for youngster year for the number of girls dragged. He claims that he could have worked in a few more, but there weren ' t enough week- ends. Paul has expressed a desire for the submarine service. His ability to get along with people will make him a welcome shipmate. BATTALION 191 LAWRENCE STEPHEN HELMS Baltimore, Maryland After graduating from the " A " course at the Baltimore Poly- technic Institute, Gary came to match his wits with Navy Tech. Al- though at times German seemed to be winning the battle, Gary always came through in true " Poly " tradition. Although Gary played soccer and rowed 150-pound crew, he somehow managed to find plenty of time to spend in the rack. However, we all realized that he was merely saving his eyes for the wild blue yonder. Gary waited, sometimes impatiently, for the four years to pass to begin his quest for his Navy wings of gold. JOSEPH FRANCIS HOFFMAN, JR. Upper Darby, Pennsylvania After spending a year at the University of Pennsylvania Joe decided on the Navy as a career, and he entered USNA. His con- genial and competitive attitude guided his footsteps in his studies as well as in company squash and basketball. On the weekends that he was not dragging, " Hoff " could always be found reading a good book or play. His journalistic tendencies made him an active member of the Log, Splinter, and Lucky Bag staffs during his last three years at old Canoe U. Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, his home town, can well be proud of her native son. ALFRED CHARLES HOLDEN, JR. Baltimore, Maryland Al came to us from the ROTC unit at Cornell University. Since his arrival at Navy Tech he has become well known as a study hour chess and bridge pro, but his extracurricular study hour activities haven ' t had any detrimental effect on his academics, for stars have consistently appeared on his lapels during the last four years. " Flash " has also made a name for himself in the handball court, causing many an opponent to stagger away from a game defeated. His many friends have often returned from football games in Baltimore feeling good after the parties at Al s. Although we hate to see him go, we know that Navy Line will be gaining a good man. 192 FOURTH I ROYSTON CHARLES HUGHES Rochester, New York Proudly bearing a Welsh name, Roy confused us all by display- ing an affinity for all things Germanic. In his final year in high school at Rochester, New York, Roy selected the Naval School on the Severn rather than pre-law near Cayuga ' s muddy waters. The wisdom of this choice was sometimes questionable . . . although Roy excelled in the social sciences, he only managed a complete understanding of the technical subjects while returning from exams. Roy ' s athletic ability manifested itself in his prowess with overweight opponents in the wrestling loft. This tempered fighting spirit should be the keynote of his accomplishments as a submariner. feeling THOMAS EPES HUTT, JR. Richmond, Virginia The Land of Lee " sent us one of her finest sons when she sent us Tom. His personality was as sterling as the stars he wore his entire four years. A quick mind, coupled with a pleasing sense of humor, won for Tom the admiration of all who knew him and were undoubtedly responsible for all his many accomplishments, both aca- demic and athletic. It was a rare Saturday night when Tom could be found in his room as he could cut a cool rug and was much in demand with those Virginia belles. Tom ' s love for adventure has lead him to the submarine service with dreams of polaris missiles, arctic journies, polar ice caps — and an inexhaustible supply of ice cubes for that famous drink, " Hutt Collins. " NORMAN LEWIS JONES Dallas, Texas " Jonesie, " a big talker from that second largest state, decided to quit the civilian line in order to enhance the Academy with his presence. Always ready with a timely quip on the subject at hand, " Jonesie " had a knack for making those long, long days a bit more bearable. Although Norm made some pretty fair marks in the aca- demic subjects with little or no studying, his prowess with same was exceeded by the talent he had with the young ladies. He told every- one that his middle initial stood for " Lovable, " and he spent his four years at the Academy trying to prove this statement. Norm is sure to receive a hearty welcome no matter where he may go. BATTALION 193 ALEXANDER JOSEPH JORDAN, JR. New London, Connecticut Al comes from New London, Connecticut, and desires to re- turn as soon as his career will permit. The first thing you ever learned about him was that he knew more about submarines than anyone at the Academy. The second was that he was constantly at war with the math department. Of Al ' s many talents his power to comprehend the written word is the greatest, and the ability to express his knowl- edge is its equal. He excelled at giving sound advice on almost any subject. Al ' s prime aim while a midshipman was to mold himself into as competent an officer as has ever graduated. He was successful. DAVID GEORGE KALB Allentown, Pennsylvania Dave will tell you that the world revolves around Pennsylvania, and Allentown is its exact center. Like the true Pennsylvania Dutch- man that he is, he swears that the world ' s best pretzels come from there and pronounces vacation, " vaca-a-ation. " Dave has been in a host of activities at the Academy, those of note being: four years as cheerleader, with his first class year as head cheerleader; four years in the Chapel Choir and Glee Club; a very successful try at acting in the Masqueraders ' " Stalag 17 " ; and three years of ocean sailing with two ocean races under his belt. Dave ' s main joy though was dragging. We know Dave will carry this fine spirit of achievement and determination into the fleet and wherever he goes. Pasade EDWARD NAKAPAAHU KELIIKOA California After graduating from Pasadena City College, " Pineapple " headed east to join the boys on the gridiron at Navy. Hampered by a knee operation, he was forced to quit football. When not on the gridiron, Ed was found listening to Kenton, Brubeck, MJQ ' s and other progressive jazz groups. As editor of music on the Log staff, he furnished the publicity to our Sunday afternoon " Pop Concerts " as part of his " Logarythms " column. The guitar is his favorite in- strument since he learned to play it while a beach boy, surfing at Waikiki. Ed is pointing toward a career in aviation. He ' d like to fly A4D ' s on close ground support for the ground troops of the Marine Corps. 194 FOURTH Staten Island, ROBERT JOSEPH KENNEDY N. Y. " God ' s country, " Bob will tell you, is located on an island in New York Harbor: Staten Island, to be specific. Yes, " Heaven on the Hudson " claims this son of Eire and can indeed be proud of his many accomplishments since his arrival on the fair Severn shores four years ago. Bob excelled in everything he attempted, whether it was in Skinny Lab, on the basketball court, or on the dance floor. The amazing thing, however, is not so much the accomplishments themselves but the confidence and the ease with which he made them. This ability will certainly insure Bob ' s success in anything he endeavors in the future. JAMES RICHARD KINNEY Lacrosse, Wisconsin A product of Central High School in La Crosse, Wisconsin, where he finished second in his class, Jim typifies that elite group of Middies who came right out of high school and yet handled USNAY academics with ease. During his four year sojourn at Navy he con- sistently maintained high grades. His interests were not, however, restricted to the confines of academics alone. The Combined Musical Clubs, Reception Committee, and Church Choir had their share of his free time, and his contributions to these organizations had much to do with their success. Although a lover at heart and gifted with an irresistible charm with femmes, Jim was seldom seen dragging. Weekends found him either on the golf course, tennis courts or in his room playing his saxophone to the agony of his wife. A voracious reader, Jim finds in books a source of relaxation and enjoyment. With his determination, resourcefulness, and the ability to act coolly under pressure, he should be an invaluable asset to the fleet. |g| DAVID JAMES KNORR Scranton, Pennsylvania From the beautiful Pocono Mountains came the pride of Scranton, Pennsylvania, David James Knorr. Jim, or Tug as he was better known to his friends, made use of his great athletic prowess while at the Academy, taking active participation in the many athletic programs offered. Many are the times he was seen working out in the field house on weekends in order to practice a new shot or ap- proach to improve his ability. We will never forget when Jim, always eager to make good first impressions, made his plebe summer officer clutch, by sounding off, " Mid ' n Gish, 4th Class, Sir. " The Naval Academy ' s loss is the service ' s gain as Jim will be a great competitor and a fine officer. BATTALION 195 ROBERT JULIUS KOWALL Port Chester, New York The pride and joy of Port Chester came to USNA after a year of fraternity life at RPI. Bobs good looks kept him busy fending off female admirers, and only his exceptional diplomacy kept this long, perfumed line from mass hysteria. His blonde hair and blue eyes made him a picture book jet pilot, but being cursed with glasses youngster year caused a flame-out in a heart that had burned to fly from its first beat. Bob believed in acting like a man at all times, and he showed those around him his skill and fighting heart whenever per- forming on the athletic field. We, his classmates, know full well that he will excel and cast honor upon the name of the Academy. LARRY BRYANT LAUDIG Jamestown, Indiana Larry is a product of the good state of Indiana. Upon gradu- ating from high school, he decided to let Uncle Sam guide his educa- tion. Since then his fame has spread the world over. For four years " Torque " has set the academic standards for the " sweat room. " In athletics he was no less proficient. Plebe year saw him a pole vaulter on the plebe track team. He was a mainstay on the company basket- ball team, one of the Brigade ' s best, and a hard worker for the in- tramural cross-country team. As to the future, he has his eyes sky- ward, very skyward, out where the satellites fly by. We all know hell always be out front. LAWRENCE WILLIAM LAVELY Cincinnati, Ohio Larry, or " Laves, " as he was known to his many friends, was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. Previous to his entrance to the Naval Academy, he spent one year in pre-med at Xavier University in Cincinnati. " Laves " played on the plebe football team his first year at USNA. The other years he played various battalion and company sports, among which were battalion football and swimming. While at USNA, " Laves " became a confirmed bridge player, what time was left from studies and sports, he usually spent at this game. 9b FOURTH BONIFACIO CALALANS LOMOTAN, JR. Malolos, Bulacan, Philippines Benny had little trouble adjusting to military discipline at Canoe U., coming as he did from a year at the Philippine Military Academy. Plebe year posed few problems for his keen memory, which also served him well academically. An avid intramural athlete, Benny spent many of his free hours within the confines of a handball court. Many other hours were used to the best advantage deeply entrenched in the blue trampoline. He extended his warm friendliness beyond his wide group of friends in the Brigade, often serving on the Reception Committee as a host for visiting teams. His cheerful nature and willingness to always lend a helping hand will serve him well in the future, and make him a person well worth having as a friend. PEMAQUID Point IVON HUBERT LOWSLEY, JR. Norman, Oklahoma Deciding a naval career offered many advantages over civilian life, Ivon left the University of Oklahoma after one year to enter the Naval Academy. A rackets man, he played varsity squash for three years and intramural tennis for two. His pleasant voice was heara many times over WRNV, and if he was not playing sports or broad- casting over the radio, one could usually find him playing his ukulele or engaged in a fast game of bridge. His personality enables him to make friends no matter where he is, and he will be an asset to any branch of the service upon graduation. RICHARD CHESTER MACKE Kirkland, Illinois Dick brought all 6 ' 6 " of himself to Buchenwald on the Bay from the booming town of Kirkland. Studies never gave him any trouble as he was generally on the Superintendent ' s List, but run-ins with the Executive Department and his no-sweat attitude made his life here at Navy interesting. Although he generally liked his weekends in the blue trampoline, he could always be convinced to go to a good movie, especially a western. He was known as the brains of the syndi- cate, but some of his cool plays, like his workings on the hi-fi set, some- times made his wives wonder. Dick enjoyed dragging and even though he was a thrifty person, he somehow kept losing his crest. After being a member of ' 60s undefeated plebe basketball team, he devoted the next three years of his extra hours to varsity basketball. Hell always be remembered as the guy who fouled out in the first five minutes of the William and Mary game in his youngster year. BATTALION 197 GEORGE STEPHAN MAKOVIC Toledo, Ohio George, a loyal Ohioan, came to the Academy straight out of high school. Not having any trouble with academics, George spent much of his spare time in athletics. George became known as a very versatile athlete as he played on seven different intramural sports squads besides being a member of the plebe lacrosse squad. George has developed the fine trait of laughing at his own mistakes; this keeps him in constant laughter. George ' s determination, consideration for others and positive outlook on life will make him a success as a career officer. EDMUND LAWRENCE MANGAN Teaneck, New Jersey Ed came to USNA fresh out of high school, but with a worldly wisdom far beyond his years. One of the youngest and most well known men in his class, he was quick to point out that it is experience and not years which counts. His sly wink and accompanying line have proved him a handy man with the women. Ed would have ranked number one if marks attained were matched against man study hours, but he was always too busy helping someone out of a jam or getting himself into one. An early love for speed and an ever-sharpening eye now threatens to loose this high-stepping young man on the unsus- pecting wild blue yonder in a Navy jet. GEORGE GERALD MARBURGER, JR. Delaware, Ohio After four years of success at Delaware Willis High School, the favorite son of Delaware, Ohio, was sent on to bigger and better things at the Naval Academy. George displayed his ability and teamwork in everything he undertook. After lettering in four sports in high school, George continued his athletic prowess via his keen competitive spirit while participating in the sporting program. As a member of the Naval Academy Choir George also showed his ver- satility and all-around ability. Surely the naval service has gained a fine officer and all-around gentleman. 198 FOURTH DAVID LEE MARES Racine, Wisconsin A wife can be a great help to any man ' s profession, and to this Academy wife such credit can be given. Although Dave was one of those few plebes who seemed to be naturally squared-away, he was always on hand to help his classmates over the rigors of plebe year. Not one to be found idle, Dave spent his hours away from the books on the athletic fields where his specialties were varsity soccer and lacrosse. Suave Dave, a possessor of a rare pair of internationally famous big, brown eyes, always managed to find time to share them with the many young lasses who found those eyes irresistible. Even while at the University of Wisconsin for one year, aeronautical en- gineering caught his fancy, and this interest grew during his four years at the Academy. In the near future Dave will probably be seen overhead in one of the latest developments of the aircraft field. RONALD PAUL MARSHALL Peoria, Illinois Ron came to USNAY by way of NAPS and the fleet as a distinguished chow hound and all-around swell guy. He had no trouble getting enough to eat plebe year as he was on the plebe crew train- ing table. He was a steadfast player on the battalion and company heavyweight football teams. In the spring he played a rugged de- fensive game on the varsity lacrosse team. He brought with him to the Academy a sincere desire to make the submarine service his career, and he never changed his mind. With his quiet manner and his knack for getting a job done, he is certain to be a success in his future career. ROBERT SEIDEL MECK Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania " Moke " has a perpetual sun-tan which he claims is due to the coal dust of Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania, his hometown. This tan combined with sharp eyes and a quick smile became well known throughout the Brigade during the past four years. Coming to the Academy from Wyoming Seminary, " Moke " excelled in intramural football, tennis, and basketball. He attributes his muscles to weight- lifting, and of course the lucky Marine Corps has another rugged pilot on the way. His likes include women, drinks, and food ri that order; and he has proven his ability in handling them all. Bob ' s good sense of humor and his unequalled friendliness have made him the terrific guy he is today, and the dependable officer the country will need tomorrow. BATTALION 199 MARTIN PECK MERRICK Naperville, Illinois Marty came to USNAY from Naperville, Illinois, and brought with him a pretty extensive musical background. While here, either vocalizing or instrumentalizing, it was in Mart ' s line and he was in it. With him, Navy Line was mighty fine, until Second Class Summer, at which time the air looked fair. In academics, the sciences were his meat. He could make his slide rule talk and was often heard talking back to it. Swimming was Mart ' s favorite sport; and between that, music, and a conscientious attitude toward the books, the fairer sex often found room to make its impression. MICHAEL HERBERT MERRILL Boulder City, Nevada Aptly described as being in love with love, Mike spent his spare time answering letters from female admirers in all parts of the world. Charming, intelligent and attractive, Mike had everyone constantly guessing as to the identity of his latest " true love. " Energetic and enthusiastic, Mike could always be counted on to bring a little life and fun into the dullest of meetings, parties and evening study hours. Mike ' s ambition has always been to be the best jet-jockey of the U. S. Navy, and undoubtedly he will soon be just that. DENNIS ANTHONY MOORE Littleton, Colorado Denny, famed throughout the 18th Company for his athletic endeavors, brought with him to the Academy a sense of humor as big as his neck. A four year veteran of battalion lacrosse, he soon became almost as co-ordinated as any man. He did, however, excel at studies and provided many a helpful El for those with lesser mental powers. Of Denny ' s many hobbies, bridge, although the most confusing to him, is his favorite and with the years should come en- lightenment. A career even more successful than his Academy days awaits Denny, and great accomplishment should be his. 200 FOURTH DAVID EUGENE MULLEN Spokane, Washington Moon, ' ' as he is more commonly called, came to us that fate- ful day in June to join the " pampered pets of Uncle Sam, " a naive and well adjusted college student. Navy soon made its mark, and he became entwined within the arms of Mother Bancroft. He quickly established himself a man of few well-chosen words, preferring to quietly take action himself. At the end of youngster year the 13th Company found Moon pushing his cruise box to the 18th Company after falling victim to a third class give-away lottery. His spirit re- mained undaunted as he continued to leave behind a trail of con- quered academics and broken-hearted girls. It ' s with a feeling of lost comradeship yet pride that we watch Dave progress on to the fleet and greater honor. GEORGE CLARENCE MYERS, JR. Laurel, Mississippi " P. J. " arrived at USNA full of vim, vigor, and vitality and now has evidence of it in the form of many friends, memories, and 4.0 s. George ' s exceptional ability and determination have paid off academically, and his warm personality has won him many friends. His principal athletic interest was swimming. Although girls from Philadelphia to Pensacola have fallen for George his heart belongs to a Southern Belle from Laurel who is a good bet to finish his bachelor days quickly. We ' ll miss this guy who has many times pulled us from the jaws of the skinny department, but the Navy has gained an officer of truly outstanding proportions. MURRAY CAMERON NIXON Santa Cruz, California Back East from the Golden West came San Francisco ' s answer to " Smiling Jack. " Always ready with a smile and an infectious laugh, he pulled many of us through a cheerless day. From the very first he was active in many different organizations. In addition to keeping up with his marks, he found time for the golf team and his first love, varsity sailing, and was one of the most active of the Highland Light ' s Bermuda race crew. Murray is pointing for Navy Line and submarines, and if he is true to form, should be as great a success underwater as he was during his four years on the surface of the Severn. BATTALION 201 WILLIAM PETER OLSEN Petaluma, California " Ole " is another one of those lucky lads from the land of surf and sun, California. He came to the Academy via Petaluma High, a year of wandering, and Columbian Prep. His calling to the sea was mainly influenced by his father who has spent his entire life in the Coast Guard. The studies were the main barrier for " Ole " throughout his four years on the Severn with a close call in youngster year math accounting for some grey hair. This trouble with engineer- ing sciences stems mainly from the fact that his aptitudes ran along the liberal arts line. " Ole " plans to make his way to Pensacola for flight training, and then on to the fleet. With his great sense of humor, personality, and driving ambition, " Ole " will be a valuable asset to the Naval Service. ROBERT EDWARD OSMON Zion, Illinois After a rigorous year of frat life at Lake Forest Bob decided that the strain of partying was too much. He came to Navy to enhance his former fame as the " Pride of Zion. " Moose organized the boys from Illinois and soon became known as the muscleman of the syndicate. He proved his reputation when he led the Class of ' 60 on to victory as Mr. Inside in the never-to-be-forgotten Turkey Bowl Game. Football was his sport, but soccer and track proved no strain. The women, however, did prove a problem — they just would not let him alone. He spent many a study hour discussing this di- lemma. Although a hero with the women, Bob was not one for publicity. But we all know that the William and Mary game of ' 58 proved a real " Dilly. " HENRY WILLIAM PAPA Warwick, Rhode Island " Pop, " well known throughout the Brigade for his pixie-like grin, came well prepared to Navy after two riotous years at the University of Rhode Island. During his tour at the Academy, besides establishing himself as a familiar character on the campus, he gained a weli-deserved reputation for his drive and determination. These es- sential qualities of the better naval officer should earn " Pop " a distinguished career in the service of his country. 202 FOURTH ROBERT DALE PARKER Decoto, California Coming to Annapolis from the distant Pacific shores was no real change for Bob; he ' s been hopping from place to place for as long as he can remember being a Marine junior. During his USNAY sojourn, Bob ' s pet activity always was soccer; plebe and three varsity years found him with bruised feet, banged up shins, and a parcel of letters as his reward. Academically, he has never been hard pressed, although not one to hit books when there was something more worth- while to do, say spending a few hours in the pad. After passing four leisure years at Navy, Bob has decided to give the fleet ' s air wing a chance to prove itself. EDWIN FRANCIS PARSONS, JR. Los Angeles, California After spending two years with the college set at the University of Santa Clara, Ted decided to cast his lot with the Navy. From the first day that he entered the Academy, he has never ceased to have a good time. Although Ted had his troubles with academics, he never sweated them too much — he just had fun. Ted was always crazy about aviation, in fact, after Second Class Summer, he got a pilot ' s guide for the N3N and learned everything there was to know about those bi-wingers. Throughout his four years, he never ceased to dream of his future career in Naval Aviation. JOSEPH HENRY PEEK Tucson, Arizona An " old Pueblo " native, Joe hails from the land of the sun, Tucson, Arizona, where he attended the University of Arizona for two years. A confirmed westerner, Joe ' s eyes light up when he speaks of his warm and sunny climate and the beloved Rocky Mountains. Known throughout Bancroft for his engineering ability, the word was " call Joe, " if something didn ' t work properly. A lover of good music, he played lead trumpet for the NA-IO dance orchestra, and was treasurer for the group his second class year. A member of the Drum and Bugle Corps and the Catholic Choir, he also shot on the varsity rifle team and managed the varsity dinghy team. His prize possessions include a .44 Magnum revolver, a hi-fi set and a trumpet. BATTALION 203 CHARLES HAYES PETERSON Pueblo, Colorado West Point ' s loss was the Academy ' s gain when " Petey Swed- erson " came to USNAY. Always an outstanding student, he wore stars each year. His ability, however, was not confined to the class- room. Pete was a standout on the varsity and battalion wrestling teams, earning the nickname of " the Colorado Crippler " from his coach for his aggressiveness. This fighting spirit was exemplified in his desire to acquire new skills such as learning the complexities of electronic circuits, playing bridge, tennis and swimming and his ability to excel in each department. Naval Aviation couldn ' t have had a better man from the Academy than this beaming Swede from Colorado. HENRY LEMLE PHILLIPS, JR. Dc Te Prior to his midshipman days, Phil spent one year at Texas A M. His first year there proved to be an invaluable indoctrination period for the rigors of Academy life. Phil ' s speed on the cinder oval made him an excellent quarter miler. The track team can be proud of his aggressive, winning spirit. His speed with the women was no less effective. In his case, the old adage — a girl in every port — did not apply. Phil preferred to have at least two. His future " jungle bunny " days will show the world his true character. You ' ll have to look far to find a man better suited for his job. He won ' t mind at all the dirt and grime associated with those foxholes. JACK ORRION POLK II Corpus Christi, Texas The former largest state in the Union sends us this happy rebel. Jack, not adjusting to life in a border state at first, was won over slowly by the Academy, so much so that he chose the five year course. He has contributed much to Severn life through his interest in the Engineering and Boat Clubs and also through five years of sailing here at Navy. Jack took a semester break at George Wash- ington University, but was soon back to bolster the numbers of the class of ' 60. T he future will find him in Navy Line and adding much to the service. 204 FOURTH I LUCIAN BRADBURY PURINTON II New Orleans, Louisiana Brad came to Canoe U. from the deep South, extolling the virtues of southern belles, bird dogs, and Creole gumbo. It was difficult to console himself to the idea of going to school this far north. During the week he could usually be found aboard one of the ocean sailboats or deep in a volume of William Faulkner. His week- ends were generally spent dragging or playing tennis, seldom behind books; nevertheless, he managed to stand high in all his academics. His idea of a good summer cruise consisted of racing a sailboat to Bermuda, although straight Navy Line is still his choice. FRANCIS RICHARD RAPASKY Linden, New Jersey Dick ' s background before USNA included ninety-two credit hours at Union Junior College and many more hours engineering for L. J. Wing and Company. We remember Dick not only for looking up to his six and one half feet, but also for his help in our wide and varied academic problems. If Dick wasn ' t at a club or committee meeting, he could often be found thumbing through an old Esquire. No matter what specialty Dick chooses it is sure that the blend of gentleman and technician will insure his success. DAVID ALAN RAYMOND Spokane, Washington A ladies ' man from the woods of the Northwest, Dave came to the Trade School after a year of entertainment at Whitworth College. Liberty always found this genial host escorting some young lovely around ' Historic " Annapolis. Along with his studies, Dave found time to draw unique covers for the Splinter. He proved his athletic prowess on the plebe squash team and no doubt would have gained immortal fame on the squash court, if by chance he hadn ' t discovered the blue trampoline " early youngster year. Having found his main ambition, Dave is all set to augment his chosen pro- fession by winning his Navy wings of gold. BATTALION 205 ROBERT WALL RAYMOND Providence, Rhode Island Bob came to Canoe U. straight from down east New England ' s rock bound coasts bringing with him a love for submarines, hi-fi, and Southern belles, though not necessarily in that order. While always high in class standing in the technical subjects, Bob has never been seen near a book on weekends, and can usually be found at all the hops dragging some sweet, young thing. His agile mind generally keeps him one long step ahead of the wrath of the executive depart- ment, while his easygoing disposition lets him face th e grimmest Monday reveille with only a slightly lopsided smile. He will surely be a success in sub-school and the fleet. MALCOLM CLEPHANE REEVES II Orlando, Florida " Mick " had many nicknames at the Academy, one of which was " Firpo, Wild Man of the Pampas. " Many times his cry shuddered through the hearts of his fellow midshipmen. The end of plebe year saw Mick as the number one goalie on the lacrosse team and at the end of youngster, second, and first class years he occupied the same position on the varsity. Mick was also talented in other fields, and, though accused of being a Latin lover, he confined most of his attentions to his OAO. Mick made many friends while he was here at USNA, and it ' s certain he has a great future ahead of him. tigjg | DANIEL FRED REID Villas, New Jersey Danny came to the Naval Academy via Chester High School, Pennsylvania, and Wyoming Seminary. After spending two years in the Naval Reserves prior to entering the Academy, he quickly and easily oriented himself to the ways of the Navy. After classes, one could find Dan in the wrestling loft and on the football and lacrosse fields, where he sparked the Fifth Battalion on to many victories. His suave mannerisms, ready smile, and unbounded determination com- bined with his keen perceptive mind will make Danny an asset to any organization. The United States Navy has gained a true officer and gentleman. 206 FOURTH JAMES CRAIG REYNOLDS Morristown, New Jersey Morris+own, New Jersey, can proudly claim Jim as a valuable contribution to the Naval Academy. Prior to entering the Academy, he spent one year at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Energetic and hard working, Jim is well liked by his classma tes. His name appeared on the Superintendent ' s List and he also wore stars. Jim has been an active member of the Newman Club, the German Club, the Foreign Relations Club and the Reception Committee. He demon- strated his athletic ability as a valuable member of the company soccer, Softball and 150-pound football teams. His plans for the future include marriage and a very promising career in submarines. JOHN RICHARD RICHARDSON Wayne, Mlchiqan Rich, having soent his childhood in Georgia prior to making Michigan his home, was a northerner with a southern accent. He had the personality of the famed southern gentleman, a feature shown very well by the number of letters he received from girls from all parts of the country. Dick was also a marine from the word go and he intends to improve on his accomplishments gained from two and one half years of active Marine training. Rich took part w holeheartedly in company sports, being a member of the soccer, football, and baseball teams. Along with all of his activities, however, Dick never failed to save some time to apply himself in numerous church functions. ROY G. RILEY Marlette, Michigan Coming from Marlette, Michigan, " Luke " was able to call upon his storehouse of sailing experiences to provide for himself an enjoyable four years at the Naval Academy. Each year would find him on the dinghy and ocean racing squads and a member in good standing of the Boat Club and Engineering Club. From the background that he acquired at Columbian Preparatory School, Luke was able to cope more fully with the obstacles that he encountered in his four years of study. Always alert, the Academic Departments never succeeded in catching him unprepared. His quick wit and bright smile will make him long remembered by all who knew him. BATTALION 207 Richmond, CHARLES KEITH ROBERTS California Charlie, also known as Keith to some of his classmates, came to Navy directly from high school in Richmond, California. During his early years here he could be seen churning up and down the Severn with the crew team. Finally the sailing bug bit him and varsity sailing laid claim to him. Although Keith would rather listen to some Mantovani albums or experiment with his camera more than anything else, he could often be seen with a pile of books stacked high before him. Future plans include Navy line and, perhaps, submarines. JOHN LEO ROGERS El Centra, California Rog came to the " sweat room " from sunny southern California. His desert origin is shown in his love for the wide open spaces; hence his running ability. He has been the backbone of the company track sports as well as making his contributions to the varsity oval. His academic contributions have met the standards of the Superintend- ent ' s List many times. It is a known fact, however, that John Leo is no man for all work and no play. Seldom does a weekend pass that he does not have that certain member of the feminine sex adorning his left arm. In fact, he is an expert at having more fun per weekend for less money than any man on " the campii. " He aspires to be a member of that high flying clan known as " Nasal Radiators " in order to stay as far away from Arizona fullbacks as he can. GEORGE EDWARD RUCKERSFELDT West Hempstead, New York Born and raised in West Hempstead, New York, George came to the Naval Academy after attending Princeton University for a year. He was active in sports, with company Softball and soccer taking most of his time. His extracurricular activities included the Masgueraders and the rack, in both of which he excelled. Dragging found in him an enthusiastic supporter during weekends. George did not find any difficulties in academics, having obtained an above average mark during his four years at Navy Tech. His choice, the " Silent Service, " will find in him an officer with great qualities. 208 FOURTH NORMAN WADE SAMMIS Hackensack, New Jersey Norm ' s sense of humor and his willingness to help others will be remembered by his classmates and surely noticed by his future associates. The minute he started to speak anyone could tell that Norm was the kid from Hackensack. Although he was no slash, he managed to do admirably, considering he kept his tradition of dragging every weekend for three solid years and maybe more. Although at times tempted to become an oilman, Norm took second class summer to heart and new he looks upward for his wings and his career. Pensacola, WILLIAM WADE SHAFER Florida JOHN ARTHUR SCHMIDT Peoria, Illinois John came directly to Navy upon graduation from high school. He excelled in all fields of academic endeavors, his favorite subject being Bull. During his last two years he participated in the advanced science seminar. During his free moments, John was often found studying or reading. Battalion football and company fieldball called him during their seasons. He also enjoyed an occasional round of golf. John was liked by everyone; he had an excellent sense of humor. Whether John selects Navy Air or submarines, his organizational ability will be much appreciated by the Navy. Wade, a Navy junior from Pensacola, Florida, originally hails from Coronado, California. After high school, he attended Pensacola Junior College and then enlisted in the Marines. In January of ' 56, Wade was accepted for NAPS and started his life at the Academy the following June. Wade ' s ability to handle firearms won him a spot on the plebe and varsity pistol teams. He was always active in company sports too, as demonstrated by his performance on the cross-country team for three years. Wade never had too much sweat academic-wise and the 3.4 ' s were always within easy reach. Marine Corps Air is first in line on Wade ' s list of plans for the future. BATTALION 209 GRANT ALEXANDER SHARP Arlington, Virginia G. A. Sharp entered the Academy after high school in Hawaii. Although he lived in many places as a Navy Junior, he claims Arling- ton, Virginia, as his home town. Track and tennis kept him in shape during his stay here. Weekends kept him in shape socially as his well- filled address book will testify. Not exactly a " star man " no one was happier to see graduation arrive than Grant. His wit, and his ability to make the best of any situation, made him a welcome addition to the Brigade. These same qualities are sure to obtain a welcome berth for him in any ship or station of the Navy. ROBERT CALDWELL SMITH Gastonia, North Carolina This true son of the South came to the Brigade via the Citadel, with loads of academic talent in one hand and a high strung ukulele in the other. Bob was always a hard worker when he had to be, but at times his attention would drift toward the irresistible urge to participate in the cops and robbers game conducted by the Executive Department ' s gang busters. Maintaining the high reputation of the fourth wing barber shop was a top priority enterprise. Other extra- curricular interests centered in the relatively less demanding field of sports; notably fencing, handball, and badminton, and in the magnetic appeal of the modern jazz artists. The future will probably find Bob in the cockpit of one of the Navy ' s supersonic hot rods. ROY CAMPBELL SMITH IV Falls Church, Virginia Roy came to the Academy following graduation from Severn School. In his pre-Academy days he compiled a commendable record in both athletics and academics. He continued to excel at the Academy even though pulling the big number seven oar on the varsity crew and maintaining a Superintendent ' s List average at the same time was no easy task. Although he was a good natured giant, he was often a victim of scheming attacks by his little friends. Surely he will never forget " Channel, " " love, " his " unfinished face, " or . . . " hormiga " ! Navy Line awaits Roy, and unless they make hatches smaller, he ' ll continue his fine record. 210 FOURTH MELVIN HUGH SOLLBERGER Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio Buz, a native of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, was probably the most active midshipman of the Class of I960. His many interests included business manager of the Lucky Bag, lacrosse manager, and an ener- getic worker on the Brigade Activities Committee, and the business staff of the Log and Splinter. A top man academically, he still seemed to find the time to help those around him. Before coming to the Naval Academy, he attended Ohio State University for one year, where he was first in his class. Buz has chosen to become an officer in the United States Navy and hopes to have a thirty year career in Navy Line. I ROBERT JOSEPH SPOLYAR Gary, Indiana Out of the smoke of the Calumet Region via the campus of Purdue came the man who helped put the " Steel City " on the map. He let no situation get out of hand, either in Bancroft Hall or on the athletic field. His abilities on the basketball court, in the boxing ring, and on the baseball diamond matched his love for and extensive knowledge of the world of sports. Bob made a great number of close friends while at USNA, and they will remain his close friends for life. He will truly be an asset to the Naval Service. 4 v ■»_ -» Jl E»tfw RICHARD HENRY STOAKLEY Charleston, West Virginia Dick left his beloved West Virginia hills for Severn ' s shore after two glorious years of plush fraternity life at West Virginia University. Never one to harbor academic worries, Dick could usually be found in his horizontal office reading up on the latest in hi-fi innovations. To his musical idols, Louis " Satchmo " Armstrong and Arturo Toscanini, and other such giants of jazz, he gave top priority on a self-assembled sound system. Other extracurricular interests centered in the intramural sports arena, where Dick proved himself a stalwart at soccer, handball, and track. )TH BATTALION 211 Racine DONALD EUGENE STONE Wisconsin Gene, or " Stoney, " was a mainstay of the morale of the company for four years. Not being one to worry about matters of little consequence, he usually ended up in peculiar situations; most of these occurred during plebe year, yet he always came out smiling. The academic departments gave him a scare from time to time, but this did not bother " Stoney. " A sailor at heart, he was on the water in every sport in which he participated from varsity crew to yawl sailing. His endless hours on the Severn River gave him satisfaction and a great deal of pride. ROBERT CALVIN SUTLIFF Arlington, Virginia It was but a short jump for Cal from Severn Prep to the trials of the stenciling ink of plebe summer. With a previously acquired respect for the chilling awe of the fabled Blue, a pair of sturdy sea legs, and a warm personality, Cal easily overcame the rigors of Academy life. During the year Cal would be found dreaming of Chrysler products, and contributing to the varsity pistol team. He will be best remembered for his entertaining roles in the company parties. Pensacola is next in line for Cal, and with his jovial nature and sincere friendliness he should have no trouble earning the coveted wings. " V JOHN LANCE SWANSON Moline, Illinois Swannie brought his typical Swedish good looks and winning personality from Gods country in Illinois to the hallowed halls of old Mama Bancroft. John was second class company commander and his class standing was very impressive. Although he spent much time slashing, he could be found adding spark to the battalion wrestling team or taking on any challengers in handball. He also participated in gymnastics, football, and was a member of the varsity dinghy sailing team. In fact, his love for sailing led him to spend many happy hours on his special " yacht on the bay. " He enjoyed listening to good music and enjoyed dragging on weekends even more. In fact, being the bright-eyed boy of the Illinois syndicate, he was known as the " cool one " with the fairer sex. If there was any one thing he liked the most, it was his liberty. Swannie could often be heard saying, " I ' ll have to make Sup ' s List this term; I need those extra weekends. " 212 FOURTH 1 I k owed k °j jnv one DENNIS VAUGHN TAFF Oroville, California Dennis came to the Academy following in his father ' s footsteps. He hails from Oroville, California, and stopped off at Severn Prep School for a year on his way here. When he was not hiding behind his camera, reading about Arturo Toscanini, or sleeping, Den could be found studying. It was always amazing how he found ways to keep the young ladies chasing him so ardently. His six foot five frame made him a high priority selection for the 150-pound crew team during his plebe year. After that sailing took his fancy, and he could be found churning up the Severn during the afternoons. A confirmed Navy Air man, Dennis plans to go all the way. J K- :■ ' wi ; i JAMES ROBERT TAGUE, JR. Urbana, Illinois Bob has followed in the footsteps of his father, first the Naval Academy, and then Navy line. He loves to fly and his major interests lie in jets. Bullis Prep School prepared him for his midshipman life. He was active in company and battalion sports and was a cheer- leader his last two years. Bob had a smile for everyone and was liked by all who knew him. Academics were his major problem, but he managed to pull through when he needed that 2.5. Bob ' s cheer- fulness and ardent desire to get along with people will certainly insure his success as an officer. ROBERT GERALD TAYLOR Baltimore, Maryland Coming to us from Baltimore, Jerry was well acquainted with Maryland weather, and seven months as what he vaguely termed an engineer at the Glenn L. Martin ' s Company supplied him with enough steam savvy to stand sixteen for mechanical draw- ing. Soon after arrival he was introduced to the intricacies of squash and for four years he was the mainstay of both the battalion and com- pany squash teams. Academics, girls, and life in general — he met them all with the same suave smile and cool indifference that makes him a welcome addition to the service. BATTALION 213 JOSEPH RICKS TENNEY New Orleans, Louisiana Joe came to Navy to follow his father ' s footsteps, however, only to the extent of graduation. His service preference leans more ubmarines than to the Supply Corps. After some difficulty with academics during youngster year, Joe came back and settled down to face the books with a determination that was to be admired. Aside from the studies, he was a success in everything he pursued. This could be seen by his outstanding performances for the battalion ' earn, and the company 150 pound football team. Joe is assured of a successful career in the service. His friendly approach, quick judgment, and winning spirit cannot but help him to accomplish this goal. j k £kfi i WILLIAM EDWARD THOMAS Hollsopple, Pennsylvania " Tank, " as he was dubbed by a segundo in the hectic days of 1956-57, answers well to the name in both looks and deeds. Two hundred pounds and six feet tall, he was a big asset to Coach Hardin ' s reputation, as well as to his own company in a variety of ways. Besides athletics Tank did well in his studies, and for the past four years has been a member of the Foreign Languages Club. Born, raised, and educated at Hollsopple, Pennsylvania, Tank came to the Academy after a year at Bu 1 1 is Prep. With not even a slight incerti- tude, we can see here a man who would undoubtedly be among those holding the key to the nation ' s security in the air. ALTON KENNETH THOMPSON Dallas, Texas From April 4, 1938, to June 4, I960. Alton Kenneth Thompson has been outstanding in each and every endeavor he has undertaken. " Butch, " as he is called, is a quiet, good-natured, and amiable man, who has shown excellent qualities as a leader, in athletics as well as in military aptitude. During his four years at the Academy, Butch has stood near the top of his class, but also found time for active participation in varsity and intramural sports as well as being in extracurricular activities. In addition to his academic and athletic abilities, Butch has a way with the women, as has been witnessed by all at USNA. Butch has a knack of getting along with everyone, and this, along with his ability to conquer almost any obstacle, will assure him of success. 214 FOURTH WILLIAM JUSTUS TOWNSEND Coronado, California " Willie ' came to the Academy via Coronado High School and Bayden Prep School of San Diego. As one of the starting eleven on the Coronado squad for three years, he gained much experience which helped him win a starting berth on the Plebe team, went on to play Varsity ball, but the struggle with the " Skinny " Department became too much, and he was forced to give up his favorite sport and spend the extra time with the books. When not studying, most of the weekends found him dragging. Although a hard worker, " Willie " always leaves plenty of time for fun. As a result, he ' ll certainly be a welcome addition wherever he goes. MICHAEL FRANCIS TREACY Westboro, Massachusetts Wanted for draft-dodging in Argentina where he was born, " Gaucho " claims Massachusetts as home. Athletically, Mike found his way into YP ' s and was an ardent fan of the " Radiator Squad. " The Catholic Choir and the Spanish Club took up his leisure moments. As a detective, " Dick " Treacy put up quite a fight in the case of the Executive Department ' s Form 2 as evidenced by the many cold winter mornings he spent paying his debt to society at extra duty — it builds character! His predominant sense of humor will make him a welcome addition to Navy Air where he plans to enter the ASW field. WILLIAM MARLOWE TRUESDELL Key West, Florida Bill entered the Academy after graduating from high school in Mt. Hermon, Massachusetts. After receiving a good education there, academics were no obstacle here. He did not spend all of his time studying but he made very good use of his spare time by extensive extra reading and writing. He even took an extra course by attending extra instruction in French during his Second Class year. Upon entering the Fleet, his extra reading and his constant thirst for knowledge will prove an asset. BATTALION 215 HARRY BLAISE TRULLI Burbank, California " Tiger, " a nickname he picked up back in the old days — plebe year — came to us from Burbank, California. Having done some time in the Navy before entering, he knew what he was in for. He always helped to keep our spirits high whenever the going got rough for nothing ever really bothered Harry. His main interest lay in sub- marines, and he always kept several books handy for ready reference. He was a hard worker and always managed to do well, and we know that whatever he does, he will always be successful. JOSEPH WOJDYGO WADE, JR. Park Ridge, Illinois Joe brought his happy face and wise remarks from Purdue University, but had to give up his love for party life and easy living which, in vain, he tried to duplicate here at Canoe U. He played company squash and other intramural sports, but his favorite sport was the horizontal position on the blue trampoline. Here he was an accomplished artist due to many hours of grueling practice. When not engaged in this activity, he could be found playing hearts, pinochle, or chess. Joe was definitely not a woman hater, but, believing that variety is the spice of life, he managed to keep his crest intact. The " Chuke, " as he was known to his friends, was the life of the Illinois syndicate. His good humor and witty remarks won him many friends and created many humorous incidents; a good example being the hit he made at Pat O ' Brien ' s in New Orleans. Villa Park, EDWARD FRANCIS WAGNER linois Frank came straight from high school to " old Mother Ban- croft " and proceeded to set quite a record for himself. He was regularly on the Superintendent ' s List and stood high in over-all class standing. " Honus " excelled in athletics, and was a star on championship company cross-country, basketball, and Softball teams. He spent his last two years playing company soccer and became known as " Mr. Outside " after the Turkey Bowl game when he racked up many yards on end sweeps. When not participating in sports, Frank could usually be found writing letters. After he finished his daily letter-writing period, he could be talked into a quick game of cards and, as in athletics, he very seldom came out on the short end. For this reason, he became known as the dealer of the syndicate. 216 FOURTH ROBERT MONROE WALTERS Madison, New Jersey Bob came to Navy from Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey. Settling down to work here, he showed the Academy what a wonderful flair he had for the sciences. He always stood near the top of his class in all the sciences. That is not to say that his other subjects suffered. He always excelled in anything he started out to do. He worked many long hours making his shows on WRNV the best that could be offered to the Brigade. During plebe summer and plebe year he was on the crew team. For the next three years he managed the sailing team with his usual meticulous care. Bob wants to go into submarines when he graduates. With his background and popularity, it will be a good choice for the Navy. fc GARY NATHAN WAX Hemingford, Nebraska Gary graduated from Hemingford, Nebraska, High School in 1955 and, after attending the University of Nebraska for a year, he came to USNA. If Gary had his choice, he would have spent the four years in the pad or playing bridge; as it was he came in every night bruised from every sport he played so that he had a good excuse for sleeping most of the time even though maintaining a 3.1 average. He was forever receiving letters from out Colorado way. Gary certainly never missed the first liberty boat to the beach, and his ability to party has earned him Brigade wide acclaim. Since aviation summer, the sky has appeared to be the preference for this talented man. HARVEY DONALD WEATHERSON Washington, D. C. Don ' s fame spread far and wide when he became the first man to strive for a 5.0 in P.T. Don ' s main sports were track and gym as attested by the lengthy number of numerals he sported on his B-robe. His second claim to fame was his room, Don ' s Gym and Barber Shop, as it was commonly known. His standard equipment for life at Navy consisted of: barbells and assorted weights, a vault- ing pole, innumerable pieces of sweat gear, hair clippers, and the always present cup of " mud. " His favorite non-athletic pastimes were his OAO, dragging her, writing her, or just thinking about her. BATTALION 217 « ■■ m PABLO SAUBERER WEHRSTEIN Havana, Cuba June of 1956 saw a confused but determined Cuban mid- shipman, Pablo Webrstein, register at Bancroft Hall to become a midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy. Pablo attended the Colegio de Belen, the Instituto de Vibora, and the Cuban Naval Academy before coming to Annapolis. He had some trouble at first with his English, but maintained a 3.99 average in Spanish, and was active in the Spanish Club. Soccer was Pablo ' s favorite sport, and he played company, battalion, Plebe and J.V. soccer, in addition to Varsity soccer. Havana, Cuba, is Pablo ' s home and he returns to Cuba after graduation to receive his commission in his country ' s Navy. Pablo has maintained an academic record which is the envy of most mid- shipmen and he has made many friends who look forward to seeing him and keeping alive the bonds of friendship between Cuba and the United States. £k 4 H Cor JOHN EPES WHITELY, JR. California It is best said that Jack did not join the Navy to see the world. A former Navy junior, Jack had seen much of it and knew what he was getting into when he entered the grey walls of Bancroft Hall back in 1956. Jack, known to some as " Whitey, " belied his quiet appearance by always having a ready remark and managed to keep things from getting dull. Now that his academic days at the Naval Academy are over, Jack intends to keep up the Whitely family tradition by following in his fathers footsteps as a line officer in the Navy. We know that whatever he does, he will rate a well done! JUSTIN HARRY WICKENS Quezon City, Philippines " Wick, " as all his friends fondly called him, came to good old Navy Tech with quite a bit of insight as to what Navy life is all about. He was a Navy junior who could, on various occasions, be found claiming to be from Norfolk, Hawaii, Indiana, Philippines, etc. When Wick wasn ' t over working out with Rusty Callow and the lightweight boys, he could be found drawing cartoons, posters, cards, or anything anyone happened to ask him to draw. His ability with the pen and ink was only exceeded by his ability to be snowed by the fairer sex. Wick was an asset to the Brigade and he has always held foremost in his thoughts his future service career. 218 FOURTH MORRIS BENNETT WILLIAMS Lewisburg, West Virqinia Because of his military bearing, " Granny " was clubbed in high school with the nickname of " Colonel. " Yet he gave up this nickname and left one of the most scenic localities in the United States to come to the Naval Academy. He wanted to become a naval officer. With this in mind, becoming accustomed to life at Canoe U. was relatively easy. Patience and tolerance won him an infinite number of good friends. Many of his afternoons were spent in Thompson Stadium throwing the discus and in the spring he received his reward — competition in track meets. His leadership ability will make it a pleasure for anyone to serve under him. JAMES TOWNSLEY WORTHINGTON Coronado, California Jim is one of the boys hailing from the land of perpetual sun- shine — the sandy beaches of California. Big Jim took his guitar and Tijuana boda and headed for the Academy where he was to become one of the outstanding personalities of his class. His unceasing store of wit, sense of fair play and varied sports interests made Jim well liked by all of his acquaintances. His greatest accomplishment in academics was the completion of plebe " steam. ' His complete dis- like for the Executive Department was offset by his love for liberty, leave and Navy Air. The opposite sex was Jims greatest problem, but his name was never the center of a bricking party. His ability to organize and to put first things first will surely enable Jim to fulfill his ambition — that of becoming a capable Naval officer. " % £ WILLIAM ERNEST ZIERDEN Norfolk, Virginia Bill came to the Academy from high school with an impressive record which he diligently worked to better in his four years on the Severn. His casual, efficient bearing quickly won the respect of all who encountered him, whether on the pistol range or in a military status. Even while maintaining a commendable academic average, Bill never lost sight of his rather unique sense of humor nor his intent pursuance of fine literature. Many a classmate will long re- member the crackling voice and " eternal triangle. " Bill plans to fly Navy and spend some time in postgraduate school working for a Master ' s degree. We of ' 60 rest assured that no obstacle he may encounter will be too great for him to overcome. BATTALION 219 SUBMARINES JOHN ALSTON ANTHONY III Norfolk, Virginia Soon after graduation from Shelby High School in 1955, John attended the Naval Academy Preparatory School at Bainbridge, Maryland, having received his appointment via the United States Senate. Soon he began the rigors of plebe year and the long struggle with skinny. At the end of his plebe year, he moved from North Carolina to Norfolk, Virginia, where he became an avid Virginian. Always ready to dispute with anyone who said the North won the war, he soon found the Northerner a rather likeable person. The Fleet will soon receive another fine junior officer ready to learn more about the Navy. CHARLES EDWIN BAILEY, JR. Little Rock, Arkansas The " Beetle " entered the clutches of Mother Bancroft as a Marine fresh out of the prep school at Bainbridge. This was preceded by a year at Little Rock University as a business major. Throughout the week " Beetle " could be found perched at his desk under his desk lamp cursing his slide rule and the academic departments. During the spring " Beetle " was often seen on the Softball diamond tossing the apple for the 12th Company. His time in the Corps convinced him that the Navy is the outfit for him. ARTHUR JAMES BAKER III Warm Springs, Montana Jim came to USNAY from Carrol College in Helena. During his four years, he was enthusiastically interested in basketball and track. His long and lanky frame helped him to succeed in gaining many points for these company sports. Our Wild West boy, who is an avid skier and hunter, claims that the silent service is here to stay. Jim is therefore planning to make it his first choice. However, the silent service has nothing to do with Jim ' s being silent in matters of love. Devotion to the opposite sex drove him to drag most week- ends that he wasn ' t studying. With this type of devotion (to duty) the Navy will be receiving an outstanding officer. FIFTH BATTALION 221 RICHARD MIDDLETON BANISTER Huntington Park, California This California immigrant adopted the City of Perfect Balance and soon became its loudest exponent. After graduating from neigh- boring Southgate High, he labored a year as a snuffy in a chemical plant. Soon realizing that work is hard, he decided to develope his mind at USNA, thus depleting the Reserve Fleet by one. While in these halls he was a constant striker for stars and enjoyed many Superintendent ' s List privileges. When not writing letters he could generally be found bounding over hill and dale leading the company and battalion to greater glory in cross-country and track. Dick plans on Navy Line after graduation and he will be a valuable addition to the fleet. CHARLES CARROLL BARCUS Greenbelt, Maryland Chuck hails from the gentlemanly state of Maryland. After spending four years having a real ball at Gonzaga High, he began his plebe year and his naval career. He was not much of an artist as his plebe steam grades will show; however, Chuck managed, along with the rest of us, to get that heavy youngster stripe. Then his problems switched from steam to girls. With the start of second class year, and rough academics, he still had his girl problems — seems she just couldn ' t, or wouldn ' t, write. If we have any future complaints with Navy chow, we can tell Chuck as he will hit the supply corps for thirty. " Com Beef Barcus? ' WILLIAM FREDERIC BASS Fort Bragg, North Carolina August 3, 1937, was the day that the world got its first look at our boy Bill, and since then, we ' ve all grown to know and like him. Born in Peoria, Illinois, this Army brat now claims Fort Bragg, North Carolina, as his home. Prior to entering the Academy, Bill put in two years at nearby Severn Prep School, then took a trip out west to play college boy at the University of Washington for one year. While here at Navy, he spent many a Saturday afternoon on the lacrosse field, playing attack on the varsity squad. When not doing battle with the books, Bill also found time to play battalion golf and fieldball in addition to a little radiator squad action. His choice of duty is Navy Air, and it looks as if our air arm is about to receive another fine officer. Best of luck at Pensacola, Bill. 222 FIFTH JOHN KENNETH BATCHELLOR, JR. McLean, Virginia Ken, better known as " Batch " to the Brigade, was often known to refer to the good old days at the College of Charleston which he attended for one year prior to his internment at USNA. Ken, a Navy junior, was born in Texas, claimed Charleston as his home, and was a confirmed rebel at heart although he was hindered by a definite Yankee accent. Despite his extreme neatness in person and all other things, Ken had his run-ins with the Executive Department but his usual good natured attitude was never changed. Because of his ability to get along with people, Ken has a tremendous number of friends throughout the Brigade. ROBERT WATSON BELL Rices Landing, Pennsylvania Bob came to Navy after a carefree year at Waynesburg College. From the first day of plebe year Bob and the system had their disagreements. Bob was always happiest when in some small way he triumphed over it. Sportswise, Bob was one of the mainstays of the company fieldball and soccer teams. One of those lucky few who owns the intangibles that women like, Bob was a frequent con- tributor to the social life at hops and company parties. In spite of the variety of his drags, the largest share of his admiration was reserved for a certain girl back home. After graduation he is aiming for those " wings of gold " to wear on his chest. ROGER LEE BENNETT Klamath Falls, Oregon " Rog " hails from Klamath Falls, Oregon — " Way up thar in God ' s Country, " he says. Two older brothers who have made the Navy their career convinced " Rog " of its great opportunities and so he came to the Academy in preference to an intended career in architectural engineering. " Rog ' s " happy-go-lucky nature and his willingness to give his all for his outfit have made him a welcome addition to many Tenth Company activities. These qualities, combined with his habit of doing the job right, are sure to take him far in Navy Air. BATTALION 223 GEORGE MICHAEL BEZEK Johnstown, Pennsylvania George arrived at the Naval Academy trom the mountains of western Pennsylvania. An outstanding high school athlete, he attended Columbia Prep before entering the Academy. He was known throughout the Brigade for his rugged end play for the Blue and Gold. " Froggy " took an active part in company sports when his football didn ' t interfere. He managed to navigate the waters of the academic program with his mind occupied with thoughts of his hometown, Johnstown. An asset to any group with which he is associated, George is sure to become an outstanding Naval Aviator. JOHN ALEXANDER KLEIN BIRCHETT III Vicksburg, Mississippi Jack chose the trade of the navigator rather than the sutures and scalpels of a long line of doctor predecessors, and finally arrived at Navy Tech after a year of indoctrination into the ways of a seafarer, courtesy of the NROTC at Duke University. Academics came pretty easily, but not without some self-applied extra instruction. Jack took an active part in company activities on the athletic field, and you would always find him in the midst of general " bull " and horseplay sessions, from which he became an " authority on prac- tically nothing. " The future will include some sea duty on destroyers, perhaps a stint at Pensacola, and inevitable marriage, and certainly a successful and rewarding career. ALVIN FRANCIS BLOCKINGER, JR. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Alvin, better known to his classmates as " Bud, " or " Hawk, " came to the Naval Academy from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, after spending one year at Columbian Prep. Bud quickly became very popular with his classmates, and soon he became a company stand- out. He also participated in Navy athletics, playing varsity football for three years. Bud was always fairly quiet, and studies didn ' t always come easy to him, but with his determination, he did his work quickly and efficiently. Since second class summer, Bud has had ambitions of a career in Naval Aviation. Wherever Bud goes, we of the Tenth Company wish him luck, and we know that he ' ll be a success and will make many new friends along the way. 224 FIFTH LARRY ALBERT BOYER Annandale, Virginia Larry came to the Academy after preppir.g a year at 1 where he excelled in football and baseball. At the Academy, he continued his athletic pursuits in football and lacrosse. Contrary to popular belief that all football players are non-reg, Larry was such a sweater he stenciled his dental bridge. With threats of returning to his Virginia farm or becoming a truck driver, Larry completed four rigorous years with laudable academic marks, and he will long be remembered by his classmates for his effervescent personality. ROBERT JACKSON BRENTON Grand Junction, Colorado By way of Bullis Prep and the Nava : e:e- e tzz ts e from the mountains of Colorado to scenic, histc- :. Life for Bob existed mainly between his skinny book and etters from the opposite sex which he often received. After two years of fencing Bob turned to the more rigorous company sports and a limited muscle building course. With the extra time accumulated b y the change in his athletic schedule, he became a devout disciple of Goren. Bob, being a member of the choir had ample opportunity to use his golden voice. His continuous good natured manner was exemplified by his ability to take the continuous ribbing about his rather large feet. RONALD EVERETT BURDGE Washington, D. C. A man of many opportunities, Ron gave up the comforts of an NROTC scholarship for the austere life of USNA. Although currently claiming D. C. as his home, he has lived in various parts of the country and has far flung feminine acquaintanceships. Proficiency with the slip stick kept him constantly within striking distance of starring. However, mental gymnastics never sufficed to quell Ron ' s thirst for athletics, which led to his participation in plebe soccer and varsity wrestling. As if these activities were not sufficient to keep the above average Mid busy, the D B Corps and Concert Band also made use of his talents. With Ron ' s natural versatility he will prove an asset to the fleet. BATTALION 225 WALTER WOODROW BURNS, JR. Charlotte, North Carolina Tiger Woody was one of the more sports minded individuals cf the Brigade. On the sports field, where he played 150-pound football, company softball, and wrestled, or off, Woody ' s main interest was sports. Although he was an ardent supporter of all Navy teams, he would never sing the song about Army, " We just play David- son . . . " This may stem from the fact that he spent a year at Davidson before coming to USNAY. Woody was a good and con- sistent student. His sincerity, wit, and personality made true through- out the Brigade the expression, " Everyone knows Wood Burns. " HARRY PARKER BUTLER Jackson, Tennessee Harry, from the flatlands of West Tennessee, en tered the Academy via Marion Military Institute to begin a career that should be decorated many times before its termination. After rowing to the EARC championships as a plebe, Harry remained on the light- weight crew as an upperclassman. With crew occupying his after- noons Harry spent his mornings and evenings conscientiously staying out of any trouble with the academic departments, while also making the hard times bearable with a joke here and there. Harry ' s near- sightedness may hinder a farsighted aspiration for the " Silent Serv- ice, " however, his personality and ability to excel will be a natural invitation to any command in the Navy. WILLIAM RAYMOND CALVERT Odessa, Texas Bill came to the Academy from the oil fields of Texas. Al- though not as tall as most Texans, he had a heart as big as any and could tell plenty of tall tales. Though more at home with a welding rig in his hand than a slide rule, he did manage to grind out the answers and was always certain that the system eventually could be beaten. His steady Texas trigger finger and cool eye when he drew a bead on a target made him a valuable member of the rifle team. Tex was a man who didn ' t care for the salt air and a rolling deck underneath and looked forward to a land based career in the Marine Corps. A likable personality and a deep devo- tion to duty will take him far. 226 FIFTH EUGENE JOSEPH CHANCY Dothan, Alabama From deep in the heart of Dixie came this smiling rebel who found the military nothing new after spending his early days at Marion Military Institute. This fact was well proven as he was chosen to be the model for the Academy ' s new drill manual. With a well rounded schedule of football and brigade boxing, mixed with glee club and choir, Gene found time for most of his interests including the opposite sex. He always managed to divide his time between hard work and good times which proved to make him an asset to the Brigade. The ways of the military were always something special in his mind and we know, whatever service he chooses, he won ' t need luck to succeed. EDWARD WILLIAM CLEXTON Arlington, Virginia During Second Class summer Clex found that he was as much at home behind the controls of one of Navy ' s jets as he was for four years behind an oar in the Academy ' s shells. Entering the Naval Academy from the Naval Air Reserve, Clex plans to follow his Dad, the Admiral, into the air. Always a great guy to have around, Ed will be a welcome addition to any happy hour, while his dependability, resourcefulness, and common sense will make him a valuable asset to his squadron. Away from the Academy Ed spent his time entertaining the fairer sex, while his Academy time was divided between crew and studying with time out for a few laughs. THOMAS JERRY COGDILL Waynesville, North Carolina The foothills of the Smoky Mountains reluctantly gave up the " Reb " for his four year stay at " this ole Yankee schoolhouse. " Those four years brought him somewhat closer to civilization, but did not break him of the habit of carrying on loud conversations in his sleep, spiced with quaint old southern sayings. There is no doubt that the " Rebel ' ' will not be forgotten by those who came into contact with him at USNAY. While establishing a reputation as a fine pitcher on the Softball field, he proved to be a " tiger " in battalion boxing and football. Here comes a good man, Navy Air — let ' s hope you realize his abilities quickly and speed up the success he deserves. BATTALION 227 GLEN WILLIAM COLEMAN Havana, Cuba This fine looking Cuban lover joined the Academy after absorb- ing a year of fraternity life as a Delt at Duke University. Glen was quite upset at first when he was told that he could not keep his raccoon coat and drinking hat at the Academy; however, he quickly fell into the swing of Navy life and established an outstanding record during his four year stay. Besides being very well liked, Glen was a member of the wrestling team, chairman of the ring and crest committee, and cartoonist for the Log. Glen ' s conscientious attitude and likable personality guarantee the Navy a fine officer. ritfjfci HOWARD DONALD DeLUDE Rawlins, Wyoming Don came to the Academy after spending a year at West- minster College where he studied petroleum engineering. He is well liked by all of his classmates, exceedingly conscientious, and has often been seen studying after hours to keep his grade up. Due to an injury Don was unable to play football, but his love of the sport has led him to be manager of the varsity team since his arrival at the Academy. Besides football, Don is highly interested in swim- ming, baseball, and boxing. During his plebe year he developed into a better than average boxer. With such determination and persever- ance Don should make a fine line officer. WILLIAM DIMSDALE Highland Park, Illinois Bill has been active in many phases of Academy life during the past four years. Among his diversions were the Drum and Bugle Corps, the juice gang, and the Model Club, with, of course, tea fights on the weekends. Studies seemed to be of secondary importance to Bill with so many time consuming activities, but he still maintained a high average. Hailing originally from Highland Park, Illinois, he had a year of junior college life in Kansas City, Missouri, prior to entering USNAY. He has a very great interest in the Navy, as is exemplified by the fact that he spent four years in the Sea Scouts where he attained the rank of Lt. (jg). Bill has all intentions of pursuing a naval career, with a preference for subs. 228 FIFTH ■ PETER BROWN DOLAN Brooklyn, New York " P. B., " " Sparrow, " or just " Pete, " came to USNA the hard way — straight from high school. With him Pete brought a little bit of Ireland, a lot of Brooklyn and a penchant for making new friends. P. B. s ' musical talent was utilized by the Drum and Bugle Corps, while the Reception Committee capitalized on his congenial nature. When engineering subjects puzzled " P. B., " he would persevere and pass, in some instances achieving proverbial " maximum efficiency " with a 2.50. Pete ' s casual nature and quick Irish wit will contribute to any submarine wardroom when he joins the wearers of the dolphins. I •» LAWRENCE EUGENE DUNNE Wilmette, Illinois Coming from the land of Lincoln, Larry was the perfect ex- ample of a truly " Gung-ho " career officer. The Naval Academy ' s loss is to be gained by the silent service. His vast knowledge of subs was quite often the downfall of many plebes. Larry, being a fond admirer of all sports, was the only member of the class to salute an officer with a lacrosse stick. Having been one of the youngest members of the company, Larry was often called " the answer to a teenage prayer, " maybe because his youthful innocence made him a favorite with the opposite sex. His many questions concerning the birds and the bees will long be missed. RONALD LESLIE EARLE, JR. Audubon, New Jersey Ron is a friendly and well-rounded person. This is due to an interest in his surroundings and those people with whom he is asso- ciated. He hails from Audubon, New Jersey, where he went to high school. While in high school he was a very good athlete, participating in track and football. Ron went to Lehigh University after graduating from high school and majored in electrical engineering. Then he en- listed in the Navy, and shortly thereafter received an appointment to the Academy. He was sent to NAPS and entered the Academy as a member of the class of ' 60. BATTALION JON HOWARD ESSLINGER Palmer, Alaska Howie emerged from the wilderness of Alaska to get an Educa- tion! He accumulated an invaluable wealth of personal experiences as a G.D.I, at the University of Illinois the year before he came to the Naval Academy. Howie was a natural born hunter. He had the ability to seek and surmount any obstacle. He was a self made man who knew what he wanted and was bound to get it. He worked hard and played hard at whatever he undertook, and was a very serious thinker. He enjoyed the simple pleasures of life. Howie will best be remembered for his tenacity of spirit and his manner of living. A LEON ERVIN EVERMAN Winston, Missouri Leon claims Twin Falls, Idaho, as his birthplace, but for the past twenty years the town of Winston, Missouri, has been home. While in high school he led his basketball team to three victorious seasons and won himself a berth on the All-State team. At the same time, he managed to keep his grades high enough to graduate first in his class. Immediately after graduation from high school, Leon reported to the Severn. During plebe and youngster years he con- tinued to play basketball for the plebe and J.V. teams, but with the threat of second class year, he switched his activity to the intramural teams. A thirty year man, Leon is going Navy Line and, from all indications, will be as welcome an addition to the fleet as he was to the Academy. DENNIS JOHN FALK Lebanon, Pennsylvania Denny came to USNA from Lebanon, Pennsylvania, where he had guite a record of accomplishments at Lebanon High School. His good record followed him to the Naval Academy. A fierce com- petitor on the athletic field, he was continually sought by the managers of intramural teams. He has been a spark plug on the battalion foot- ball team for three years and has carried much of this enthusiastic attitude into the classroom. After graduation Denny plans on a career in Naval Aviation. 230 FIFTH KENNETH DAVID FOLTA Saint Clair, Pennsylvania About a week after graduating from his local high school, " Floats " packed up and headed for Navy Tech with slide rule in hand. Although he had no formal preparation before entrance, the academics proved no obstacle to him and he consistently won stars. Ken ' s main activities centered about the Advanced Science Seminar and the Math Club, in which he served as an officer. Upon arrival at USNA, he was " sweet seventeen and never been kissed. " This situation has since been corrected and his favorite topic of conversa- tion is now women. Ken is a perfectionist at heart and this attitude will undoubtedly carry him far in his Naval career. ROBERT VICTOR GAMBA White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia Born in Fort Lauderdale, Bob left the sunny shores of Florida three months later for the hills of White Sulphur Springs, West Vir- ginia, home of one of the largest golf tournaments in the United States. With that background, Bob has developed his golfing skill so that he consistently shoots in the middle eighties. Golfing is not his only sport specialty, for he has starred on the third battalion and eleventh company soccer teams for four years as well as doing very well on the varsity rifle team. After gaining some very valuable experience aboard a destroyer, Bob plans on going into the Sub- marine Service, where he is sure to do an outstanding job, as he has done on everything he has attempted. FRANCIS VAN RENSSELAER GANSZ Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Francis V. Gansz was another outstanding Pittsburgh con- tribution to the Naval Academy. The trade mark of " the Moon " was the big jovial smile and friendly manner that won him many friends. But he carried this friendliness only as far as the green fence and football practice. Once inside the fence and on the gridiron, Frank was a lean, mean guard not to be fooled with. Intent on be- coming a good naval officer, he threw himself into his studies as eagerly as everything else he desired and, with this determination and his winning personality, Frank will make the Navy as proud of him as he is of the Navy. BATTALION 231 CI and, MICHAEL WILLIAM GAVLAK Ohio PETER JACK GARFIELD Long Beach, New York Pete hails from Long Beach, New York. Before coming to Navy Tech, Pete wore the blue uniform of the NROTC unit at Vander- bilt University. Saturday afternoons found Pete trying to decide on which tea fight to attend. Because of his easiness on the dance floor, he was always one to have plenty of female admirers. Although not a varsity team member, Pete helped pull the " Club II " volleyball and basketball teams to many victories. Pete ' s fine leadership qualities will certainly be an asset to whatever branch of service he enters. The Ohio bred little man early earned his nickname " Running Mike " by setting a record in attending mass almost every day of his four-year tour at USNA. His vibrant personality and wonderful example won him the respect of his classmates as well as others. These same qualities made him an easy target for the young ladies of Annapolis and Baltimore. Mike is best remembered for always giving a helping hand to his not too savvy classmates, especially in mathematics, and for doing such a fine job as business manager of Reef Points. Thus " Running Mike " is a sure bet to have an outstand- ing career in Navy Air and continue to be a credit both to himself and to the Naval Academy in the years to come. V . - ARTHUR CURTIS GOLDTRAP, JR. Fort Smith, Arkansas Curt left Razorback country for Annapolis via three years at Kemper Military School, where his fun-loving personality kept him one step ahead of the system, and a year at Arkansas University. The Bull department dominated his troubles all four years, while the U of A provided him with extra talents in the mathematical subjects. Hard work and a keen determination to succeed pulled him through in good shape. Though he tried them all, Curt was not cut out for athletics and turned his attention to the Reception Committee, rifle team, radio club, and his hi-fi set. The same tenacity he demonstrated in his academic endeavors will surely be of great benefit to the fleet. 232 FIFTH - T JOHN EDWARD GREENHALGH Alexandria, Virginia Jack claims Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, as his birth place, but being one of many Navy juniors at the Academy, he hails from wherever his parents may be. Plebe year went by quickly for Jack for he never had a moment to himself. Youngster year, due to a peculiar turn of events, he began drawing cartoons for the Log and was a great asset to the magazine. Along with being a cartoonist, Jack managed to participate in battalion track and several company sports. Add to these talents a great desire for dragging, a mind for academics, all-night bull sessions, and you can plainly see that the Navy has a fine officer to add to its list of greats. Mi JOHN FRANK GROTH New Jersey John, one of the old salts from NAPS, came to the Academy from a small New Jersey town. Although from the Old Navy and a non-sweater, he was more than successful at USNA in academics and athletics. While keeping his grades close to starring he took part in plebe and intramural crew, and intramural football. After second class summer and a look at the B.O.Q. and Officers Club at Cecil Field, John has decided that Navy Air is his calling. His dependability and desire is sure to make him a success in the fleet. CHARLES MITCHELL HAMMOND Port Matilda, Pennsylvania " Now for a little sack time. " This statement indicated that Mitch was about to engage in his favorite subject again. He was a salty electronics technician striper w ith boot camp and the Naval Academy Preparatory School behind him when he arrived at the Academy. His interest and skill in electricity served him well in elec- trical engineering and more than one professor was petrified by his special electrical circuits. Mitch plans to go submarines after gradua- tion or, as he tells it, " Green board! Green board! Dive, dive, dive. " i Ute BATTALION 233 CARL EDWARD HARRIS Little Rock, Arkansas Carl spent his pre-Naval Academy days way down in Little Rock, Arkansas. Before graduating from Little Rock Central, he made quite a name for himself by being selected on the Arkansas all-state football team. One month after graduation from high school Carl reported to USNA, where, as a plebe, he tried out for the plebe football team. However, after a few weeks, he decided that the academic department had to come first. Not being able to break away from the pigskin, he has been a mainstay on the battalion football team for the past three years. In August of I960, Carl will be found basking in the warm Pensacola sun and ducking in and out of the clouds up there around twenty thousand feet. Erie DRAKE ANTHONY HOFFMAN Michigan After one year at the University of Michigan, he bid farewell to campus life and joined the ranks of aspiring Navy men. Although far from his home in the Great Lakes region, " El Drake-o " couldn ' t forget sailing and was often found on the Severn sailing the Academy yawls. When not playing handball or taking pictures, he could be found tallying points to see who won the daily battle of Drake-o vs Navy. Second class summer, on Plebe Detail, was an experience which will long be remembered and will prove very helpful to him years in the Navy. futur PEMAQUID POINT DAVID HAROLD HOFMANN Bethesda, Maryland Dave was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey, on January 21, 1938. He now resides in Bethesda, Maryland. He played various sports in high school, but here at the Academy his main interest was working on the Log and the Christmas Card Committee. Although the Log took up most of his time, Dave still found time to play company squash in the fall. He attended Gonzaga High School in Wash- ington, D. C, and hopes to become a second lieutenant in the Marine Corps on graduation day. 234 FIFTH ROBERT SINCLAIR HOLMAN Newark, New Jersey Bob was born and raised in Newark, New Jersey, where he attended Barringer High School. He excelled in his science courses and stood first in his class in mathematics. He joined the Marine Corps after graduation and was given the opportunity to attend the Naval Academy Prep School in preparation for entering the Naval Academy. He entered the Academy in 1956 and has, since then, excelled in the engineering courses here. Bob has shown his enjoy- ment of sports by participating in plebe gymnastics, battalion box- ing, battalion handball, and company softball. Upon graduation Bob plans on re-entering the Marine Corps. WENDAL LAMAR JENKINS Fort Walton Beach, Florida A true rebel hailing from sunny Florida, Wendal left his water skiing to stay with Mother Bancroft for four years. The military was nothing new to this Marion Military Institute graduate, and neither was the Navy, for Wendal was also a salty weekend warrior for two years. Upon graduation from old M.I., Northwestern Preparatory School seemed to be the best bet for boosting the brain capacity needed to pass the well known entrance exam. Wendal ' s sense of honesty and fair play proved to make him well liked among his classmates. As a gymnast and handball ace, Wendal kept in trim between weekends and proved to be an asset to the Company in competition. Wendal plans to join the ranks of the submariners upon graduation, and we are sure the silent service will welcome him aboard. ALBERT PARRENT JOHNSON Lookout Mountain, Tennessee Bert, a firm believer that the South will rise again, was a member of the terrible trio — Spud, Doug, and Bert. Bert ' s main trouble throughout his Academy career was deciding who his true " wove " really was. It was a good thing he had a fraternity pin from the University of Chattanooga besides his crest. Many Sunday after- noons and free periods were spent in the clutches of the Great Blue Dragon. Crew was Bert ' s varsity sport. He was a good coxswain except after leave with those extra pounds. BATTALION 235 CLINTON BERNARD JOHNSON Detroit, Michigan Clint was born in Detroit, Michigan, and has made that part of the country his home ever since. Attending high school and later two years of liberal arts at Wayne State University in conjunc- tion with an equal time serving in the Army Reserve 398th M.P. Bat- talion, " Clint " decided to try on the Navy Blue. Since he enjoyed running, track was his best sport. He was active in its various forms in both company and battalion levels. Interested in language, Clint also took an active part in the Spanish Club. Clint ' s thoughts have long been directed toward the sky, and he agrees that Navy Air is for him. KEITH SHANNON JONES Shreveport, Louisiana Having commanded a regiment in high school, " Casey " found plebe year and military life no strain. Academically, his first two years may have been hampered by a broken bone which required a cast on his writing hand, but his marks were consistently above average. Keith ' s running talents bolstered company sports four years while his church, his friends, his O.A.O. and liberty rounded out his stay at USNA. Many hours of flying as a licensed civilian pilot, not to mention two summer tours aboard ship, convinced this new ensign that aviation was his career. Always to be remembered as a de- pendable and great friend to everyone, Keith will do well with and for the Navy. ' in ■jS ' - iri 2L 4lgy| m the Academy straight from high Florida. Like a true Floridian, he :hool avid RAYMOND GEORGE JONES, JR. St. Petersburg, Florida Ray came to sunny St. Petersburg, golfer and enjoys all water sports. Besides playing two years of intramural golf and running for the battalion track team, he was also a plebe baseball manager. Ray also displayed a musical talent, playing in both the Concert Band and Drum and Bugle Corps, and excelled as a member of the Musical Club Show ' s orchestra. Although a Marine Corps junior, Ray has decided to make his future in Navy Line. 236 FIFTH JOHN LEONARD JORDAN Roanoke, Virginia After graduation from John Marshal High School, Jack spent a year majoring in journalism at Roanoke College, where he became a member of Kappa Alpha Fraternity. But a year at college proved to be too much for Jack, so he settled down here at Annapolis. While here, Jack managed to pass his courses with a minimum amount of study and a maximum amount of rest. When he wasn ' t sleeping he could often be observed stepping out of someone else ' s shower in a dripping B-robe. Jack contributed his talents to several of the company ' s sport squads and went to the semifinals in the Brigade Boxing tournament during his plebe year. Jack also enjoyed playing with electrical equipment, especially his wife ' s hi-fi set. WILLIAM DUTTON KEE, JR. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Bill was born 23 July 1938, in Philadelphia where re - resides. He attended Columbian Prep in Washington prior to coming to the Naval Academy. Bill spent his spare time every fall and spring on the soccer field as Navy ' s goalie and played company basketball during the winter months. He is well liked by all of his classmates and is known as an all-around good athlete. Many of his classmates will remember Bill for those parties in Philly, especially the annual blast after the Army game. Bill plans to be commissioned an Ensign, U. S. Navy, upon graduation. WILLIAM MORGAN KEYS Fredericktown, Pennsylvania " Bull " spent one carefree year at Washington and Jefferson College before deciding to enter the confines of Navy Tech. He worked very diligently on the books and, although he didn ' t become a star man, his conscientious effort always kept the wolf from the door. Most afternoons found Bull on Hospital Point pursuing his interests in fieldball and soccer. After graduation Bull ' s choice of the services will surely be the U. S. Marine Corps. His easy going manner and great sense of humor made him many friends and will no doubt continue to do so throughout his career. BATTALION 237 J OE JAMES KIRKPATRICK Lawton, Oklahoma Joe, or " J. J., " felt more at home in Levis and a big straw hat back in " God ' s Country, " his native state, but the lure of the boat school brought him in off the prairie. Coming to USNAY via the Marine Corps Reserve and Bu Mis Prep, Joe bounced back from his re-exam in plebe math to overcome the most difficult of his academic obstacles while keeping his classmates in hysterics with his antics. Joe could usually be heard from afar singing some lone- some ballad or love song from his homeland. His love life shifted as much as his grades, and he always had one flame or another on his mind. Joe ' s future promises marriage, a successful and commend- able career, and a return someday to a little ranch back in Oklahoma. CHARLES EDWARD KOCH II Pasadena, California Out of the fleet and into the darkened halls of Mother Bancroft came the radiant smile of Chuck Koch (pronounced cook). Cookie, as he is called by many of his close friends, was perhaps the best known man at " Canoe U, " having spread his marvelous personality over two classes and three companies during his long career. Being an active member of Log staff, dinghy sailing team, and many intra- mural sports, his days were always full yet never too full to lend his ever helping hand. Still wet behind the ears, not because of inexperience, but rather of numerous dunkings in the dinghies, Chuck Koch goes out of the darkened halls of Mother Bancroft and back into the fleet. FRANK PIERCE KOLBE, JR. Point Pleasant, Pennsylvania After prepping at Columbian for a year, Bud gave up the confining night life of Washington, D. O, for the broad social ad- vantages offered here at Navy. As a cartoonist for the Log and Splinter, he offered many a critical caricature to enliven the spirit of the Brigade. An outdoorsman by nature, his interests include camping, swimming, fishing, and nearly all sports. His free time here was spent indulging in some of his various hobbies: art, writing, listening to popular music, and philosophy. Bud ' s serious good humor and pointed wit enlivened many a study hour, and his quiet ability of making and keeping friends was responsible for a steady stream of mail arriving. The Naval Service will be most happy to welcome him aboard. 238 FIFTH HARVEY FRED KRAMER Brooklyn, New York Harv came to USNAY after spending a year at the Merchant Marine Academy (Kings Point). The trials and tribulations of his second plebe year passed and Harv finally made the grade as an upperclassman. Youngster and Second Class years found him busily engrossed with academics. After the academic storms of the day had blown over, he could be found sailing on the blue waters of the Chesapeake, managing the swimming team, or busily engaged in a " bull session. " When the weekend rolled around, Harv gave in to one of his many female admirers and dragged. Few Mids have logged in as many hours at the drag house. Future years will find him conning a nuclear sub below the sea or landing his sleek, supersonic jet on the deck of a super carrier. ROBERT EDWARD KUNKLE Leavenworth, Kansas With graduation Rob has crossed his last river at the Naval Academy and has realized the fulfillment of a lifelong ambition. A Navy junior, Rob never considered any other career, and his high school days were a preparation for coming to Annapolis. His excellence in academics, sports, and the military achieved in high school continued in his Navy life. Rob maintained a c reditable academic record throughout his four years at the Naval Academy with little effort, his name often appearing on the Superintendent ' s List. Navy benefited tremendously from his running talents, including Army which proved no match. Rob was also active socially and could be seen dragging a different girl almost every weekend. Natural feeling for military life insures Rob ' s success as a Navy line officer. V . , JOHN MICHAEL LAVELLE Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Jack is another of those who came directly from high school to USNA. Upon graduation from La Salle High School, where he was active on the crew and football teams, Jack chose the shores of the Severn as his home for the next four years. While here, Jack made the plebe crew and also contributed his efforts to battalion crew as well as to company sports. Jack made passing grades but never became reconciled with the Math Department. He is still wondering if V equals IR. During youngster year, if he wasn ' t sleeping or writing his girl, Jack could usually be found bothering his wife, who was probably trying to study Bull. But second class year sort of stopped all of that. Navy Air holds the limelight in Jack ' s future plans. BATTALION 239 RICHARD JOHN LAVERY III Chicago, Illinois " Chip, " an enthusiastic Navy Junior hailing from several points on the globe, came to USNA bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. After the rigors of plebe year were over, he quickly gained an opti- mistic viewpoint of everything. His most prominent extracurricular activity was dragging. Well known for his ability on the handball court, " Chipper " was a constant asset to the Third Battalion Team. Feeling that nothing could be better than working for Navy, he plans to retire in just about thirty years and raise tropical fish in Florida. .I.- ROY THOMAS LEWIS, JR. Richmond, Virginia This tow headed rebel hails from Richmond, Virginia, the capital of the Old South. He hasn ' t yet learned who won the War Between the States, but he is willing to let the North labor under the delusion that they did. His friendly smile and southern drawl have won him many friends. They have proven a definite asset to his dating and charming the northern girls as well as he did the southern belles in Richmond. His ready and willing attitude will make him a welcome addition to any group he wishes to join. The Southlands loss is the Navy ' s gain. ZZ iri k JOHN FRANCIS LYNCH, JR. Morristown, New Jersey After finishing his " term " in high school, Jack made his way to USNAY. Academics were easy prey for him so he was able to spend most of his time elsewhere; working out on the " blue trampoline " for example. He rarely tired of this and when he did, you could find him playing softball or sailing the Y.P. ' s around on Greenbury Point; that ' s where his point fixes plotted anyway. An ardent speaker, Jack used his talent to become one of the best members of the debate team, as one can see from his record. Jack ' s friendliness and helpfulness will long be remembered by all who knew him and nothing short of success will stop him. 240 FIFTH NORMAN JOHAN MAGNUSSEN Bremerton, Washington Out of the night, dark as the pit that covers us in Bancroft Hole: AAARRRGH!! . . . ? Has Thor descended from his heavenly Fjord? No. His direct descendant (he says), Norm the Tiger, has missed E. D. again. As that thunderous cry from plebe year still echoed down the halls, he offered proof of his mythological ancestry: who else can spend three full consecutive days demonstrating finesse with a flying frisbee, a fianchettoed bishop, and a physics final, and prove expert in each? No one! By his spirited performance on the squash and handball courts and by just living around him, we of Club I I have benefited from having known Norm. In all his activities he was always a competitive contributor with an uncon- querable soul. 3£iQC pjtK, Meriden, HENRY JOHN MAGUDER, JR. Connecticut Henry spent his pre-Naval Academy days up in Meriden, Connecticut. Before graduating from high school he made quite a name for himself by being selected the outstanding player of his team, and making the Connecticut all-state football team. Two weeks after his graduation from Meriden High he reported as a cadet to the U. S. Coast Guard Academy, but one month later, learning that he had received an appointment to USNA, he eagerly accepted and reported here as a plebe on the Severn. He tried out and made the plebe football team, but youngster year he decided that the academics were more important. He was an avid member of the gun club for four years and was treasurer during youngster year. After graduation, Henry plans on a career in Navy Line. GEORGE LOUIS P. MAHELONA Honolulu, Hawaii Born on 16 December 1936 in Honolulu, Hawaii, Louie was destined to strike cold fear into the heart of many a plebe. After finishing high school and a year at the University of Hawaii, Louie, feeling civilian life to be too complex, switched to the military. He hit USNA with a bang, not only earning his stars and becoming a permanent member of the Superintendent ' s List, but proving out- standing on the plebe lacrosse, J.V. lacrosse, and varsity 150-pound football squads. A warm friend to his classmates and a terror to the plebes, Louie will prove a valuable asset to the naval service. BATTALION 241 CHARLES MICHAEL MASKELL Baltimore, Maryland Charles Michael Maskell, more often referred to as Mike, is a native of Baltimore, Maryland. Mike graduated from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute in the " A " course which explains why he always stood near the top of his class. He was an ardent supporter of varsity athletics and played company and battalion soccer plus proving himself a stalwart on his company 150-pound football team. Athletics were by no means the end of Mike ' s interests. He was his class company representative and served on the WRNV staff as battalion representative during second class year. Mike has begun a promising, if not famous, career in the " blackshoe " Navy. JOSEPH ANDREW MATAIS Johnstown, Pennsylvania Comrade, Mantis, or Little Joe came to USNA after a year at Penn State where he studied chugg-a-lugging and political science. He was very popular everywhere because of his rapier-like wit, quick memory for quotes, and practical joking. He was a natural ambassador for the reception committee. He was a true patron of the rack and spent most of his free time there when not playing battalion lacrosse or fieldball. Joe always considered himself an expert on the arts of sleeping and partying. Comrade was a con- scientious student, a methodical worker and a fine philosopher. He had a one-word personality: Imaginative. thomas McCarthy Mount Vernon, New York Tom was born in Mt. Vernon, New York, on 29 April 1936. He grew up there and attended Edison Technical High School. He then furthered his education by attending Stevens Institute of Tech- nology at Hoboken, New Jersey. Upon successfully completing his first year at Stevens, he was highly pleased to find that he had been accepted at the U. S. Naval Academy. Since Tom ' s journey to Crabtown-on-the-Severn, he has actively participated in Company Softball and squash. Tom takes particular pride in the fact that he has been a member of the varsity debate team for the past three years. Tom will definitely prove to be an asset to the service. 242 FIFTH LARRY DEAN McCULLOUGH Elkhart, Indiana Larry came directly from Elkhart High School in Indiana, to make his way in the Navy. Having had previous experience on both the football and basketball teams in high school, he distributed his efforts between the company and battalion sports squads, and was a stalwart member of the Ninth Company basketball team for four years. When not studying or engaged in a sport, he could be found either buying new records or working at his money lending business, especially to his wife. Larry would have liked to have made his career as a line officer, but the medical department decided that his eyes were best suited for Supply Corps. CHARLES EVERETT McHALE Frankfort, Indiana A short tour at the Naval Training Center, Bainbridge, Mary- land, started Charlie ' s naval career, and the Naval Academy never managed to put an undue strain on this true Hoosier. Though always willing, and sometimes called upon, to lend a helping hand, Charlie found quite a bit of time for his favorite pastime — sleeping. His winning ways with the young ladies were thoroughly tested and found to be of the highest quality, yet the ladies were never able to get the best of him. Any outfit is going to welcome the easy going, but professional, characteristics of this fine young gentleman. I JAMES BRADLEY McKINNEY Arlington, Virginia Mac was a dealer from the word go " — the kind of person who could turn routine into riot. He was a subtle and successful instigator and had a genius for improvisation. Jim could talk anyone into almost anything, and, unfortunately, had ample opportunity to use this unique ability with the Academic Board. When winter came, " the Ant " would have a lean and hungry look, and, needless to say, was dangerous. Evidence of this is his impressive wrestling record. During his four years here, he has already become a legend. Jim is indispensable to high morale and will be a definite asset to any wardroom in the Navy. BATTALION 243 DOUGLAS KARL MENIKHEIM Easton, Pennsylvania Doug, or as he is more commonly called, Meningham, re- ported to the " Grey Kremlin " from Wyoming Seminary with two burning passions: flying for the Navy, and baseball. Despite the academic board and the executive department, he retained these selfsame passions throughout his four years here. After a brush with plebe year, Doug settled down to making life at USNA interest- ing at all costs. To achieve this end, the " Terrible Three " came into existence, and the class will long remember Bradley Tongue, St. Patrick ' s Day parties, and the great Vanguard fiasco. With his personality and enthusiasm, life will be good to Doug and to those around him. BENJAMIN FRANKLIN MERCER III Phoenix, Arizona Ben, the quiet man who could always make one smile, came from the dry state of Arizona. Most of his spare time was consumed by dragging and his activities with the Radio Club. He was noted for the practical jokes he enjoyed playing on his classmates, but, when serious work was at hand, a subtle personality and a hi-fi set always were part of the scene. To a man with plenty of ambition, wit, and a good head on his shoulders, a promising future certainly lies ahead. RICHARD BIDDLE MEREDITH Porterfield, Ohio Ohio ' s representative to the Cavalcade of Midshipmen proudly represented the Naval Academy both at home and abroad with the fair sex. Aside from these extra extracurricular activities, Dick was quite a hi-fi enthusiast. He derived great satisfaction and pleasure from building and listening to his ultra-sonic gear. On evenings when he was not at either Glee Club or Chapel Choir practice, he would select a stack of the finest music this side of heaven to aid in studying the work of the day ahead. Upon graduation, Dick hopes to spend some time on a can and then off into the wild blue with Navy Air. ?44 FIFTH ALLEN HERMAN MILLER Milwaukee, Wisconsin Al came to the Academy from a small farm in Wisconsin with the idea of becoming a Marine. Not once did he lose sight of his goal. His spare time was divided equally between reading the Marine Corps Gazette and working out in the gym. At the Academy his physical abilities were concentrated on gymnastics resulting in a varsity position on the side horse. Standing among the top ten in his class in Physical Training was an indication of his achievements. His love for the outdoors, self-reliance, and military smartness are all prerequisites to his chosen profession. Before entering the Acad- emy, Al was a Marine; at the Academy he was a Marine at heart, and now he is a Marine again. DONALD LEIGH MILLER Washington, D. C. Don, being a Navy junior, has lived in various parts of the United States and cannot be placed in any definite category. He was a mainstay of the Third Battalion football for three years and the company football and Softball teams for four years. Don was a staunch believer in mixing work with relaxation and his time which was not dedicated to studies or sports was used for relaxation. His exuberant personality won many friends during his four years at the Academy. Don hopes to return to Pensacola after graduation and earn the cherished gold wings of a Naval Aviator. NORMAN WELLS MIMS, JR. Sumter, South Carolina Norman was a true " Southern Gentleman. " He loved his native South Carolina. He liked to sail quite a bit, in fact he sailed to Bermuda with the Ocean Sailing Squad. Sports-wise, his real love was wrestling. He was a stalwart of the Third Battalion wrestling team for four years and a Varsity manager for the same period of time. Norman has high hopes of becoming a Naval Aviator after graduation. He ' ll make one of the best, for whatever he endeavors to do, he uses all the powers at his disposal to carry out his intentions. BATTALION 245 FREDERIC IRWIN MORROW Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania From Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, directly out of high school, Fred came to the shores of the Severn to answer the call of the sea. He cast his calm, easy going manner to the brigade, and in return won the friendship and respect of all. His epitaph will surely include the adjective " versatile. " A review of the records depicts him as " The Bullet ' for the battalion football team, and as a main cog in company basketball and Softball. In dragging it was the same story — one weekend with a " sunshine " girl from the South, the next with a sophisticated girl from New Jersey. With such a capacity to absorb the varieties of life, men can rest easy with this man at the conn. . ' HERBERT JOSEPH ARTHUR MOSSMAN Binghamton, New York During his four years at the Academy Herb has shown that he possesses the qualifications of a naval officer in great abundance. Herb has been a mainstay in such sports as company cross-country, steeplechase, battalion soccer and track, and battalion bowling. The academics have never posed too much of a problem for Herb. He has excelled in the skinny department demonstrating an excellent knowledge and background in electronics and electrical engineering. Herb is a " dyed in the wool " submariner and will prove to be a val- uable asset to the submarine service. The people who know him per- sonally have no doubt that he will someday be wearing the broad gold sleeve stripe. WILLIAM STEPHENS MUENSTER Alexandria, Virginia Academics were the only real problem for " ole " Steve. Though he was never really in the running for the anchor man honor because of high grades in Dago, he did come close in the other subjects, especially youngster year steam. Known as a hot submarine prospect, Steve was known to have said, " If they send me to Sub School the day after graduation they can have the 30 days ' leave. " This quiet, easy-going Virginian was known for his ease at making friends with his classmates. 246 FIFTH JOHN JOSEPH MURRAY Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania " Webfoot, " as John was often called by his classmates, entered the hallowed halls of Navy after a year at Pitt and, before that, three years at Mercersburg Academy. His four long years at the Naval Academy were made enjoyable by his participation in company and battalion sports, and as a Log and Splinter representa- tive, though most of his time was spent on his studies. The Navy will have to go a long way to fill the blue suit with anchors as well as John has done in the past. HAROLD DEAN NEELEY Atlanta, Georgia Born in Jacksonville, Florida, Hal now hails from Atlanta, Georgia, where he attended high school, graduating second in his class in 1955. During his high school days he was a member of varsity football and track teams as well as an active leader in school government and numerous service clubs. After a year of fraternity life at Georgia Tech, where he was one of the top freshmen in academics, Hal entered the Academy in 1956 and has continued to keep a high average here. He sang in the Antiphonal Choir for four years and devoted the rest of his free time to playing golf, running track, lifting weights and acquainting himself with the Marine Corps, which he plans to enter upon graduation. JOHN ERNEST CARL PAEPCKE Tuscaloosa, Alabama Jack was one of those fine Southern gentleman that Alabama produces. He was very active in intramural sports and had many hobbies, including model building and weightliftlng. He was gentle in nature and had a quick wit that fitted his great sense of humor. He was in Army ROTC at the University of Alabama before he came to the Academy, and his previous military smartness paid off for him on the Severn. All the girls seemed to be attracted to his mountainous (6 ft. 4 in.) charm and good looks. Well-liked by his classmates, there is no doubt he ' ll be a credit to the Academy in the submarine service, although he used to think he ' d never get more than one stripe on his sleeve. BATTALION 247 JOSEPH PALETTA, JR. New Rochelle, New York After two years Joe left the ranks of embryo engineers at New York University to join the ranks of Mids at USNA. At Navy Joe acquired the alias of " Morton " along with two varsity letters in fencing and the extra weekends that were awarded to members of the Superintendent ' s List. Coincident with " Mort ' s " arrival were the " short Dark Ages " ; a result of Joe ' s friendly disposition and hearty sense of humor. With Joe ' s graduation the Navy will gain the intelligent, conscientious leader it needs to fill positions of com- mand. WALLA REX PALMER Middletown, Ohio Stepping from a steel mill to the deck of a ship, Pat came to Navy via the University of Dayton. With him he brought little sweat and lots of laughs. Plebe year saw him miss one of his favorite pastimes — dragging. However, never one to let down his fans, he was seen making frequent use of Uncle Sam ' s postal services. Though the academic departments threw a scare here and there, Pat has firmly mastered the arts of reading, ' riting, and ' rithmetic. Playing waterpolo or on the volleyball court, Pat was always a good sport and proved to be a valuable asset to the company and intramural teams. A future line officer, we wish him smooth sailing. PAUL WHITNEY PARCELLS Berkeley, California It ' s a long way from California to Maryland, but Wick made the change easily. Arriving at Navy Tech from NAPS and the fleet, he will long be remembered for his smile and good humor. His gift for choosing the proper balance between academics and sports enabled him to throw the javelin, play battalion tennis and company fieldball with great success. An avid sportsman, his competitive spirit and sense of fair play will be very helpful to him in the future. Grad- uation day will find Wick still wearing navy blue and eagerly antic- ipating life in the tin can Navy. 248 FIFTH DAVID LOWDEN PARKINSON Warren, Arizona " Parkle, " as Dave is most commonly called, made his way to Navy Tech after his graduation from high school in the great western town of Bisbee, Arizona. Never being one to pass up sports, Dave has spent four years leading the Club II and Third Battalion soccer teams through some great games. " Parkie ' s " enjoyment of rock V roll music, girls, and dancing has ranked him high on the honor roll of entertainment makers wherever he goes. Having made the Superin- tendent ' s List and standing in the top 100 of his class for four years, Dave is a sure bet to be a true leader in his service choice — Navy Line. fflHfcp ■ JAMES HOWARD PATTON, JR. Walpole, Massachusetts Jim, or as he was better known plebe year, " Treadhead, " calls Walpole, Massachusetts, his home, and he was always quick to its defense in any arguments. His starring average for four years allowed him to spend at least fifty per cent more time in the rack than the ordinary Mid. After choosing Navy Air for a career, he proceeded to learn everything possible about how to tear up a model airplane, and his dive bomb tactics made him the terror of the skies, within a fifty foot range. Always known to finish what he started, Jim ' s future in the Navy appears very secure. L. j dfiytai MICHAEL FREDERIC PAUL Lake Chelan, Washington Mike hails from Lake Chelan, a little town on the edge of a big lake in the heart of the Cascadian Mountains of Washington State. He first left God ' s country to study chemistry for a year at the University of Washington. Being an experienced Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Mike was well fitted for his new way of life on the banks of the Severn. Mike was best known for his speaking ability and his power of persuasion, which gave him an invaluable asset on the debating floor. He was active in athletics, philosophy, reading, and serious discussion. Due to his wide range of interests and his natural ability, Mike will have a great deal to offer wherever he goes. :|FTf BATTALION 249 THOMAS DEAN PAULSEN Bismarck, North Dakota " Tom " came here out of the Dakota Land after spending several years at Northwestern Prep and Montana State. At this time he was an active member of Lambda Chi, during which he acquired a quick wit- and a jovial sense of humor. From the time of entrance until graduation everyone has been aware of his presence, for his pleasant and friendly personality was felt by all. His help could always be depended upon regardless of the problem. An active participant in sports, seldom could anything keep him from attaining his desires. His conscientious attitude toward academics helped him throughout the four years. As shown in the past, his desire to tackle and whip any problem that comes his way will serve him well as a naval officer. V Hanale Kc ALVIN HAWAII PAUOLE Hawaii Leaving behind the land of sunny beaches, sleek surf boards and pretty hula girls, Pappy made the transition from beachboy to sailor. Academy life came easily after a background of military life at Hamehameha in Hawaii. His natural ability proved a big asset to the Battalion swimming team and academics were never any strain. Though he had an easy-going manner, it sometimes re- sulted in involuntary expeditions with the twilight hiking club. Never one to pass up a party, Pappy plans to make every liberty call in a long Navy career. DONALD ARTHUR PEASLEY Monmouth, Maine Don entered the Naval Academy from Monmouth Academy in Maine by way of a Congressional appointment. Despite his slender build, he was soon notorious as a hearty eater. Outside of ample rack time, Don also found time to try crew and he found it to his liking. He was not one to spend his liberty hours in Bancroft Hall and could often be found dragging. Upon graduation Don will enter the Navy as a line officer, but he has plans for submarine school at some later date. 250 FIFTH JOHN ALVIN PETHICK II South Gate, California Johnny, or " J. A., " as he was known to the folks back home, spent the early part of his life in New Kensington, Pennsylvania, where he developed an early hatred for East Coast weather. John ' s five loves were sailing, sports cars, music, photography, and California. He was consistently a key man on the battalion yawl crew, and the sight of one Johnny Pethick returning from the sea encased in a soggy mass of sweaters, sweat gear, sneakers and white works had become common in the fifth wing. Bull was his mortal enemy, and every term brought the same remark that " this course will get me for sure. " Nevertheless, Johnny managed to survive, and after gradua- tion plans on a future in the modern Navy. JAMES BURNLEY RAMSEY Honolulu, Hawaii Navy tradition is stacked deep in Jim ' s family as both his father and brother are graduates of USNA. Jim came here after graduating from Severn School and attending Columbian Prep School. When he wasn ' t studying Bull, one could find him playing for the battalion lacrosse team or company football team. An accomplished dancer, with the Charleston as his favorite, and with his sparkling personality, Jim had no trouble with the opposite sex. While on cruise Jim ' s knowledge of the finer places of interest in Paris, London, and Naples proved a valuable asset to his classmates. With an intense desire to do good, Jim should have no trouble keeping up his family ' s tradition as a fine Navy line officer. BATTALION 251 RUSSELL RENTFRO, JR. Paso Robles PAUL MICHAEL RESSLER California Srownsville, Te Hailing from Brownsville, Texas, the southernmost part of the U. S., Russ ventured up north to live on the banks of the Severn. Undoubtedly, he is one of the most amiable and easy going mem- bers of his class. His activities on the intramural sports field and the Ring and Crest Committee coupled with a keen interest in music and an outstanding academic record are evidence of the well rounded personality and character that Russ possesses. Following graduation, Russ intends to continue his studies in order to eventually join the Judge Advocate Corps. Leaving his hotrods and black leather jacket alongside high- way 101 in Paso Robles, California, Rudy wasted no time embarking on his naval career. Accustomed to standing at the head of his class in high school, it was no surprise for him to be a star man at the Academy. He was also a standout on his company ' s basketball and volleyball teams and especially noted for his fierce competitive spirit. His only worry was finding some other way to spend his leisure time besides sleeping. The fleet will certainly be glad to welcome him aboard. Pemaquid point FORREST TERENCE RHODES Toledc Terry was a native of the small midwestern town of Toledo, Illinois. His big city education consisted of spending several years as a Chicago hood. He was an athlete of varied interests and could be seen swinging a company squash racket, dribbling a company basketball, or smashing a battalion tennis ball. During his more leisurely hours he could be found tooting his tuba in the concert band, or diligently playing a game of chess. He faced his daily tasks with an easy going cheerfulness that made him well liked by all. 252 FIFTH HOWARD LAWRENCE RICHEY New Holstein, Wisconsin came to the Academy from New Holstein, Wis- year at the University of Wisconsin. " Howie ' s ' " Howie ' consin, after c military mien and devotion to the service were his outstanding charac- teristics while here and promise to stand him in good stead when he joins the submarine fleet. But they were by no means his only contributions to the Brigade. He was, as well, a varsity fencer and a member of the Concert Band. Residents of the fifth wing will long remember his afternoon trumpet solos. The Academy is losing, and the fleet is gaining, a fine military man when " Howie " throws his cap into the air. KARL RIPPELMEYER Towson, Maryland Soon after Karl Rippelmeyer came to the Academy from the enlisted ranks of the Marine Corps, it was evident that he was going to make a name for himself. Although academics were a constant struggle for " Rip, " he was quite the star on the athletic field. After leading the Plebe soccer and lacrosse squads, he went on to earn 9 varsity " N ' s, " 3 each in lacrosse, soccer, and track. " Rip " was the only Youngster Blanket Winner in his class, and was an All-American in lacrosse and soccer. Although he was mean on the sports field, he was very personable around the Hall, and well liked by all. " Rip " will be a welcome addition when he returns to the Marine Corps after graduation. ROY LAWRENCE ROGERS Rockville, Maryland From the social life of D. C. by way of NAPS, Roy came to Canoe U. to take up residence for four years. Never one to bow to conformity, or excessive regulations, Roy maintained a superior diversification through brigade boxing, traveling in Europe during the summers, and maintaining the number one position in his class of having the most girls on the line. With a lot of ability and spirit, he believed in making the " best " better, and he displayed ample proof of this by taking the brigade boxing championship segundo year. With such an unquenchable spirit and love for life, Navy Line may lay claim to a fine officer. BATTALION 253 WILLIAM MORGAN ROSS, JR. Concord, North Carolina Willy came to the Academy via the Citadel and began hi? second plebe year while the rest of us were complaining about our first. During his four years at U5NAY Willy put all his knowledge and experience gained in an outstanding high school athletic career toward company competition, becoming a real asset to the company. While not a national champion athlete or a star student Willy could always be depended upon to do his best in whatever was asked of him. Born with the idea of being a Marine, his thoughts never changed. Every winter he tried to change into greens, but never made it. I ' m sure the Corps is glad they finally have him on their side. DANIEL McKENZIE ROTH Holmdel, New Jersey Dan was born and raised in North Jersey and claims Holmdel as his hometown. While at the Academy he has excelled in the liberal arts courses and has maintained a sharp interest in foreign languages. He plans to enter the Marine Corps and work in the intelligence field after graduation. Dan ' s athletic interests are varied. He was on the plebe crew team and has participated in Softball and cross-country on the intramural level. During second class year, Dan became talent manager for WRNV and has put his own talent and a lot of effort into working for the station and in the talent shows at the Academy. JAMES ELLIS ROWLEY Arroyo Grande, California A genial person, seldom in a bad or brooding mood, " Rowls " always had a good word for everybody. This " Reserve Airdale " came to the rainy shores of the blue Severn from sunny California. Spending most of his afternoons in the fencing loft Jim served the team well as both manager and part time fencer. In his spare time he either was dragging or reading the latest novels. As far as aca- demics were concerned, Bull was the only one to give Jim any head- aches, which he overcame by some hard, conscientious studying and determination. Being an officer, gentleman and a Navy junior, Jim is sure to succeed in his chosen profession. 254 FIFTH ALBERT RYDER Buffalo, New York A!, better known as " Animal to those around him, spent two years in the Navy as an ET. He was well known for his fantastic consumption of chow down in the messhall. His athletic interests were primarily in lacrosse, while the Juice Gang took up most of his non-athletic afternoons. His disposition is a characteristic which is ever changing. He has proven on frequent occasions that he has an enjoyable sense of humor and this should help to carry him through many a trying situation. LUTHER FREDERICK SCHRIEFER Detroit, Michigan USNA gained a fine athlete when Lou gave up the freedom of college life after a year ' s stay at the University of Wisconsin. Hard work and a firm manner gained everyone ' s respect for Lou. This was carried over onto the athletic fields of Navy where Lou was a member of the varsity football and lacrosse squads. Lou has demonstrated that his success was attained by determination and ambition and was not the result of genius; it was the fruit of studious labor. A career in Naval Aviation will serve as a jumping stone to the heights of success that Lou is assured of attaining. Belmont, FREDERICK ADAMS SCHWER, JR. Massachusetts Fred came to the Academy by way of the Naval Prep School at Bainbridge after having spent two years roaming the Pacific as a QM 3 aboard the ' USS Piatt, ' ' a naval oiler. His pre-Navy schooling saw him at Massachusetts Maritime Academy and Boston University. While at the Academy he was very active as a member of the Log staff, being features editor his first class year. Spring and Fall seasons also found him a fine sailor aboard one of the Battalion Yawls, of which he was skipper in his second class year. Fred also has a great love for flying which lead him to select Navy Air as his service preference. Fred will be a welcome addition to any duty station and will take his place among the future greats of the Navy. BATTALION 255 BRIAN MICHAEL SHEA Ordnance, Oregon A year of college in Colorado, Brian ' s native state, failed to convince him that civilian life had a future in it. Brian packed up his titanic fame, wrestling ability, and scientific mind and entered Navy. Here at USNA " Light Horse " bent bones for the varsity wrestling team and bolstered the battalion lacrosse team. His natural interest in engineering subjects and a high guess factor kept B. M. off the academic shoals. Navy Line will welcome the addition of this aggressive, out-to-win officer. Rochester, New JAMES RABY SHEA York " Big Jim of 82nd Airborne fame " is an expression which emanated from the eventful three and a half weeks which he vol- unteered to spend at Fort Bragg during second class summer. Before entering the Academy his travels had been extensive, as a Navy junior. He was born in California but prefers to call Rochester, New York, his home. Somewhere along the line this lad has acquired a sunshine laden outlook on life which makes it possible for him to throw his head back and laugh at most any situation. Put a rope in one hand and a swagger stick in the other and he will be eternally satisfied. MICHAEL LOUIS SHEPPECK, JR. Washington, D. C. Mike came to the Halls of Ivy from the halls of Gonzaga High School in Washington, D. C, where he was a four-letter man in Latin and fast cars. While here, he continued his athletic pursuits in the swimming line and was a member of the plebe and varsity teams. The rigors of second class summer showed Mike that there were other things in the world besides third class skinny, so he took up dragging on a larger scale. The Navy is gaining an officer with a true professional interest in the service. 256 FIFTH JIMMIE SANFORD SHIPP Springfield, Missouri to the Naval Academy, is his classmates. He quickly the " Shipp " from sinking. Jim, Springfield, Missouri ' s, gift both well liked and respected by all overcomes any difficulty which keeps Among his extracurricular activities were the German and Aero- nautical Engineering Clubs. Jim ' s favorite pastimes were playing tennis and writing letters. As one of the editors of the Splinter, he was known for never failing to meet a deadline. Although he is interested in all aspects of the Navy, Jim shows definite tendencies of leaning toward Navy Air. His determination and devotion to the service will surely carry him a long way toward success. JAMES NORRIS SHUGHART Carlisle, Pennsylvania When ' Shug " forsook the perils of pill-pushing for a life of ease in the Navy, Dickinson College ' s drinking team was denied the prowess of its three-year veteran. NAPS soon claimed our hero, and the fleet ' s loss was the Academy ' s gain. Believing that athletics were invented to de-populate the earth, Jim did not aspire to be another Jim Thorpe, also a Carlisle hero. However, Jim did do very well in many intramural sports such as tennis, sailing, and especially cross-country. He also served his classmates as a company representa- tive, and as an Honor Representative. Jim ' s ambition was to go Navy Air, but with the lighting in Bancroft being what it is, he ' ll stack skivvies. These halls will long echo to " Shu ' s " infamous " Blast off, Goofy! " CHARLES JACKSON SIMMONS Spencer, West Virginia Chas, an import from West " By-God, " Virginia, stays in shape for ridge-running on the USNA golf course. A man who had enjoyed the pleasures of fraternity life at West Virginia University, Chas, nevertheless, succumbed to the lure of suits of Navy blue and trekked eastward to begin the uncomplicated life of a Mid. Athletically Chas is inclined toward intramurals, with the exception of rowing on the plebe crew team. Poor eyesight proved a hindrance neither on the putting green nor on his selection of feminine companionship. Endowed with a booming voice and an infectious laugh, services he rendered as a morale builder were invaluable. The submarine service has, in Chas, a good piece of material with which to work. Vts BATTALION 257 NORMAN LEE SLEZAK Milligan, Nebraska Although hailing from a minute spot called Milligan on the great plains of Nebraska, " Slee " nevertheless had an affinity for the sea. He answered its call by enlisting and, through the medium of a fleet appointment and NAPS, entered the hallowed walls of USNA. Academic ability seemed second nature and the Superin- tendent ' s List often honored his name. On the soccer field he dis- played talents of a different type and played for four years. Never one to get in a huff, the common mis-pronunciation of his name was more often a cause for laughter than anger. The wheat fields of Nebraska have lost a good man to Navy Air. RONALD CLENDON SMITH Dade City, Florida When " Smuf Smif " swapped his " crow " for a golden anchor, Des Pac lost a skilled machinist and the Navy gained an outstanding officer. Brought up in the " Old Navy " tradition by his dad, a retired CPO, he is already the " hard-core professional, " but with an outlook that never missed the brighter side of the toughest situa- tion. Best known as an avid sports fan, he was both a creditable student and a competent athlete in his own right. His spare time was devoted to building model railroad eguipment. In " Smuf " Navy Air is acquiring another " tiger, " and this one is lean and hungry. If it can ' t be done, he ' ll do it . . . and do it well. Aberdeen, ROBERT HENRY STRAND South Dakota Robert Henry Strand, " Stinky " to all who know him, was born an Army brat in Aberdeen, South Dakota. Having lived in seven states in addition to Japan and Germany, he is accustomed to the travelsome life of the service. While on board ship during the summer cruises or at the Academy one could find Bob busy with his hobby of sketching. The I960 Ring and Crest Committee and the Log staff were Bob ' s extracurricular activities while at Navy. Many afternoons saw him in sweaty competition with fellow mid- shipmen in Third Battalion wrestling and spring lacrosse. The many friends Bob has made are a direct indication of his personality. 258 FIFTH DAVID PAUL STROMBERG Cincinnati, Ohio From the murky dens of iniquity of Ohio State University to the salty stronghold of USNA came young Dave to follow the wanderlust of the sea. Since he has been at the Academy, he has not only gained a creditable academic record, but has become an expert sailor as well. Many afternoons and weekends spent on the Freedom and Royona have seen to that. Other extracurricular activities have found Dave mostly In the field of music, where for four years he wielded one of the meanest baritone saxes around. The local femmes have been quite unsuccessful in snaring this young man since his interests seemed to lie in other directions. Navy Air and Subs are both high on Dave ' s preference of duty list, but whichever he chooses, he is sure to do an outstanding job. JAMES EDWARD SWEENEY University Hills, Maryland Jim was born in Washington and, unlike most of his class- mates, happens to like the state of Maryland, weather included. Before arriving at USNA Jim spent some time in the Marine Corps and went to NAPS. During his academy days he never deviated from his mission to beat the system, but he had little success. With Jim ' s graduation the third battalion will lose one of its best radiator squad men. He would like to enter the Air Force. poa JOHN HERBERT TAIT Reno, Nevada John hails from the land of silver dollars, slot-machines, and ex-wives which most of us know as Reno, Nevada. Reno knew " Tater " in many capacities — jobs as a dishwasher, gas station at- tendant, janitor, and ditchdigger being just a few. In preparation for the Academy, John spent a year at Drew School in San Fran- cisco. Sportswise at Navy he ' s seen action as a battalion boxer. He has played company sports as well, and was an ocean sailor for one year. In what spare time remained, John did service on the Log features staff, the First Class Car Committee, and as Trident Repre- sentative. Looking toward the future, it is air all the way for John — Navy, of course! BATTALION 259 TURNER WORTHINGTON TAYLOR Richmond, Virginia When " T " entered the Academy, he was fresh out of high school, but he wasn ' t exactly wet behind the ears. He was what we men of the South would call a ladies-man, and he never missed a chance to drag. He had a wicked left eyebrow. When it came to academics, he always managed to keep a Superintendent ' s List average, but was a bit too fun-loving to quite make good grease. If a classmate ever needed a hand, old " T " was ready. He was very active on the Splinter staff, starting as Feature Editor and working his way to the top. He could make a joke out of any situation, including manual labor. And no matter how bad the Executive Department treated him, he always managed to sleep it off in one afternoon. CHARLES LANCE TERRY La Porte, Texas Lance hails from La Porte, Texas, and came to the Naval Academy straight from high school. He had little trouble adapting to the new way of life and quickly proved his leadership qualities. Lance also proved his ability as a scholar by maintaining a starring average for his four years at the Academy. Athletic-wise, Lance was also a company standout. He participated in company soccer, football, and Softball and was a consistent morale builder in the company. Lance plans a career as a Naval Line officer, and we of the Tenth Company know he will be as outstanding in the fleet as he was at the Academy. ' desert Navy ' s LEWIS HERMAN THAMES Alamogordo, New Mexico The South lost a good note when this tall, shy flower " left the plains of New Mexico to sail on one of the big ships. After duty aboard the USS Philippine Sea, Lew went through NAPS and arrived at the Academy just in time to trade his RD-2 rating for that of Midshipman. Both the J.V. soccer and lacrosse teams saw his smiling face for four years and the Brigade Hop and Ring Dance Committees received his earnest support. The shy guy denied any alliance with the weaker sex, but those frequent, perfumed letters from various parts of the world left much room for doubt. For his future, Lew wanted only two things — plenty of sea duty and liberty. 260 FIFTH I i ROBERT EUGENE TUCKER, JR. Norfolk, Virginia A refugee from an Army family, Gene received a number of salty expressions at NAPS before making his debut at USNA. Never a man to sweat over any type of difficulty, Gene floated happily over the rough spots. Academics were not his par excellence, but have never proved too great an obstacle. When not in the rack he could be found making use of his musical talent in the D B Corps. Although subjects of current academic demand hardly ever met with his approval, he excelled in professional subjects. His desire for comfort was easily met by a warm radiator, slippers, and issues of the Saturday Evening Post. Always an individualist, Gene will undoubtedly have a good career in Navy Air. ROBERT ALAN ULRICH Horicon, Wisconsin Bob came from way up North to join us here at Navy. He ' s a Wisconsin boy and grew up on a farm near Horicon. Earlier, Bob ' s desire was to become a physicist, the goal toward which he labored for two years at the University of Wisconsin. The interest seems to have carried over, for Bob has been an enthusiastic member of the American Rocket Society for three years. Fencing has been his favorite sport — five years of training and competition having made him an expert. For nearly all of his midshipman career Bob has been on the Superintendent ' s List and has worn stars. As for the future, he hopes for a career in Navy Air. Happy landings! EDWARD WAYNE VINJE Gardner, North Dakota Having graduated as valedictorian from Gardner High School, Gardner, North Dakota, " Gaucho " traveled East to become a Mid- shipman. Although plebe year was rough for him, he managed to get on the Superintendent ' s List, sing in the Chapel Choir and play lacrosse for the plebe team. After a successful first year, he aspired to a higher goal and earned his stars as a 3.4 student. He also excelled on the athletic field, playing two years of J.V. lacrosse and one year of varsity. Vinje was well known in the company for giving needed help to his classmates on academic subjects. In fact, you might say he graduated not only himself, but a few others as well, for not a night went by without someone coming to him for assistance. Vinje plans on a career in Navy Line after graduation. BATTALION 261 CHARLES DENNIS VOLZER Canton, Ohio Denny hails from Canton, Ohio, and to hear him talk, it ' s the greatest place in the world. He entered USNA straight from high school where he had been a four year letterman on the ron and had also served as president of his class and president of the student body. At the Academy he continued his football on the battalion and company level. He was also a four year member of the Catholic Choir. Unable to decide whether it would be subs or air, Denny chose the in-between and will spend at least his first four as a line officer. 4_A Kerrvi EDWARD THOMAS WALKER, JR. Texas Even though Easy he calls Kerrville, Texas, his the fleet submarine service further his education. As a his intent interest in spor+s. the Academy even though level. Being a good Texan, state.

After serving two years in Ed came to Navy through NAPS to sguared-away Plebe he was noted for This carried through his four years at he only participated on the intramural Ed was always ready to argue for his s studies, but was also right there when We ' re sure the submarine service will he will be an asset to any wardroom. ARTHUR EDUARD WEGNER Madison, Wisconsin Previously enjoying a year at the University of Wisconsin, Art gave up all the virtues of fraternity life to join the biggest fraternity of all — The Brigade of Midshipmen. With his college background and German ingenuity, this native of the nation ' s dairy- land managed to squeeze by academics by starring every year, along with being one of the few who enjoyed the Superintendent ' s List each semester. Giving up his high school football and ice hockey talents for academics, Art engaged in such intramural sports as battalion wrestling, battalion golf, and battalion track. The Navy will undoubtedly find a capable and worthy submariner in Art Wegner. 262 FIFTH DONALD ROBERT WHEELER Silver Spring, Maryland Don arrived at the Naval Academy singing the drinking songs of the University of Maryland. Being a member of the USNR enabled him to obtain his appointment to this fair institution. Academics were never a problem to Don and much of his spare time was usually dedicated in trying to find a drag for an occasional hop. Don took a great deal of interest in the intramural sports program and could always be counted on for support in all of the company sports. The U. S. Navy ranks tops in Don ' s preference for his branch of service. However, due to his eyes, Don could possibly end up in the Supply Corps. Having a career mind and a keen sense for a good time, Don will be a tremendous attribute to the fleet. RICHARD LLOYD WOLF Hamlin, New York Richard Lloyd Wolf, hailing from upstate New York, is known to his classmates as the " Wolfer. " After spending two years at the University of Rochester where he was a Sigma Chi, the Wolfer chose to stray from the ranks of the NROTC to become an officer, Naval Academy style. His quick wit and domineering personality marked him well among his classmates. " The Wolfer walked softly and carried a big cigar. " All who had the privilege to associate with him here at USNA has had the privilege to see in action true friendship, devotion, and loyalty. These are the characteristics which will indeed make the " Wolfer " a valiant officer in the Marine Corps. HENDON O. WRIGHT Fulton, Kentucky Don, known as " H. O. " to his close friends, came well prepared to the Academy. After graduating from high school he attended Vanderbilt University for a year and then the Naval Academy Prep School at Bainbridge, Maryland. He is a better than average quarterback and has received varsity letters at NAPS and on the 150-pound football team at the Academy. Don, not only being sports minded, is highly interested in music and literature. Upon graduation, Don looks forward to a career in Naval Aviation. BATTALION 263 RICHARD KEITH YOUNG Tucson, Arizona Keith changed sand for snow when he came to Annapolis from Arizona. A year at the University of Arizona and a knack for studying helped place him in the top of his class. Also enjoying sports, he managed plebe track during the Black Year and then turned his efforts toward helping his company on the fieldball and soccer fields. During his four years, Keith has worked with Reef Points and the Trident magazine. A great interest in Germany and a work- ing knowledge of the German language is one of his many assets. Graduation will find Keith heading for the Seven Seas in Navy Line. ALAN BUFORD ADLER Houston, Texas Houston provided USNA with its usual big Texan when Alan was chosen by congressional appointment to attend the school by the Severn. Texas cannot completely claim " But " though since he was born in Florida and received some degree of schooling at Florida University. Along with the rigors of plebe year Alan had the extra burden of making the Form W ' s for all 4 c formations. He wasn ' t without compensation however. Whenever shots were the order of the day, Buf was always at the head of the line. After a hectic plebe year Alan settled down to devoting most of his spare time to dragging and rowing. His tremendous drive aided the crew through many a hectic race and also made him a true champion with a knife and a fork. Knowing Alan has a bright eye towards those " Wings of Gold " we wish him the best of luck in all his endeavors. DANIEL JOSEPH AFFOURTIT, JR. Babylon, New York Out of the ranks of the enlisted men staggered the lanky body of D. J. Affourtit to his four years at Navy. His offense was brains; his punishment he did not know but soon found out. Between his complaints about the system, his time was well divided among studies, thoughts of freedom and thoughts of girls. The studies paid him off with his high marks, and he could always tell you the exact time until leave and when he would see his girl again. Navy Air is collecting a good reward from USNA in the person of Dan. Huron, ROGER ALLYN ANDERSON South Dakota Roger, the jovial Swede from the Black Hills country, is more universally known as " Andy. " Before spending the best years of life at the Academy, he had a taste of civilian college — one year at South Dakota State. His transition to the USNA grind from the soft college life was not easy, but Andy ' s record, both academic and athletic, is a good one. After rowing crew with the plebe team, Andy settled down with company soccer and fieldball. Because of his previous experience in a college quartet, the Chapel Choir claimed him as one of their better basses. Naturally congenial, Andy gained many friends during his stay. The Academy ' s loss is Navy Line ' s and the Submarine Service ' s gain. SIXTH BATTALION 265 Hicks FRANK JAMES ARAGONA Ne w York Frankie came to the Naval Academy from Hicksville, Long Island, after attending Brooklyn Tech High School in Brooklyn, New York. " The nose, " as he was affectionately called by his classmates, was a standout on the battalion handball team for three years. An ardent bridge fan, Frankie believed in the philosophy that books are for the birds. This philosophy didn ' t seem to cramp him though, as he was an " on-off " member of the Superintendent ' s List throughout his four years at USNA. Upon graduation Frankie plans on entering the Naval Aviation program at Pensacola, Flor ' to specialize in multi-engine flying. vhere he pic He MALCOLM ARTHUR AVORE Maine Art entered the Naval Academy upon graduation from high school in Hallowell, Maine. While working very hard to maintain his high scholastic standing, he nevertheless managed to find time to assist his classmates in any way he could. Well known for his vivacious sense of humor, Art made many friends during his four years as a midshipman. By no means a stranger to athletics, he played first base for the plebes and excelled in intramural football, basketball, Softball, and tennis. His intelligence, quick wit, and athletic ability should make Art one of our most outstanding jet jockeys. EDWIN HAMMER BAILEY Washington, Iowa After spending a year and a half at the University of Iowa, Ed set aside the rigors of college life to come to Navy Tech. With the parties and women left behind, Ed quickly fell into the routine. Most of the academics presented little resistance to Ed which allowed him plenty of time for an afternoon of golf in the spring and fall and fieldball in the winter. His ambitious character made him an amiable classmate and will undoubtedly raise him to any goal he might aspire. 266 SIXTH GARY DEAN BALLARD St. Joseph, Missouri Gary, better known among his friends as the " chief, " hails from St. Joseph, Missouri. He entered the academy by mistake for all the appointments to West Point had been filled and the only choice left was the academy. His ideas have radically changed and now he knows there is no service he would rather go into than the Navy, especially the submarine branch. The " chief " has contributed to the high standards of the Brigade by keeping his uniform immac- ulate at all times while still providing plenty of humor for his class- mates. Those of us who know Gary wish him the best of luck and smooth sailing. CHARLES LAWRENCE BALLOU Rochester, New Hampshire Nurtured in a conservative New England atmosphere, Charlie will long be remembered by his classmates for his martini dry humor and quiet diligence. Certainly, he has proven his courage and will to be beneficial to the team spirit during his career of serving the Academy as a member of the varsity 150-pound crew and com- pany cross-country sports squads. A person who in the face of trials and frustrations accepted his challenge with a smile, the same smile which he extended to all. Charlie wants to eventually go into sub- marines. DAVID RANDALL BANNER Normal, Illinois Straight from the " Corn Belt, " Dave hit the Academy like an old salt, fresh from a year of Army ROTC at the University of Illinois. With his motto, " They have to catch me first, " plebe year was a breeze. Youngster year he could always be found during the week in the midst of bull sessions, and on weekends, dragging. Books were something to read before exams, but he always managed. He also managed to be an indispensable member of the Lucky Bag staff. United to his ideals, with a diploma and commission in sight Dave made it. BATTALION 267 HARLEY HASSINGER BARNES, JR. Linwood, New Jersey A good second bass in both the Glee Club and Chapel Choir as well as standing near the top of his class, Bud amply proved that a high school graduate could compete with, and in his case surpass, many students who had impressive backgrounds of previous college or prep school experience. His readiness to help not so savvy classmates won him their respect and admiration. Harley ' s 190 pounds of good naturedness, which, when off the football field won him many friends, may have caused the bewilderment of many a beaten and battered end on opposing company football teams who time and time again looked up just in time to see Harley again bearing down upon him. GLENN LEE BARTON Cabot, Pennsylvania Born and raised in Cabot, Pennsylvania, Glenn entered the Naval Academy after one year in the Fleet and Naval Academy Prep School. His ability and quickness of mind has enabled him to grasp and control any situation, thus putting him in the front of his class both in academics and leadership. His prowess on the 150- pound football team, with no previous experience, enabled him to make the team for three years; this being only one of his many achievements. Upon graduation he will be another highly welcomed member to the fleet as a Naval Aviator and officer. KENNETH ARTHUR BAUM La Salle, Illinois Ken joined us here at USNA after three years at Purdue. Although he was known to some as a basketball player and to others as a javelin thrower, his idea of a well spent day was eighteen hours on the blue trampoline, four hours in the chow hall, and the rest of the time figuring how to get out of anything that resembled work. Studies never bothered Ken, with the exception of Dago. Ken ' s biggest worry was the blondes. Tall, good humored, and easy to get along with, Ken will do a good job wherever he goes. 268 SIXTH WILLIAM ROBERT BEES Boulder City, Nevada Back in ' 56 Bob climbed aboard his covered wagon and contrary to the famous expression came east to the " Trade School " where they took away his spurs and boots and gave him leggings and an M-l. A " Dapper Dan " in disguise, Bob changed girls with the regularity that most people change socks. He could always be found during winter afternoons exercising his vocal chords in Mahan Hall for the Musical Clubs Show. Graduation plans are stimulated by a desire to become Navy ' s answer to Sky King. i V - k JOSEPH EVERETT BONNEVILLE, JR. Sterling, Illinois Bonny came to the Academy from Sterling, Illinois, bringing with him his good humor and ever present smile for which he was known throughout the Brigade. He also brought with him an excellent game of golf, which he immediately put to use on the plebe team. Three years on the varsity golf team further testify to his skill at the game. With his eye to the future, Bonny plans on a career in submarines. His personality and good humor should prove a valuable asset to whatever he undertakes. DONALD EARL BROADFIELD Yates City, Illinois Don came to the Academy from Yates City, Illinois, and almost immediately began to establish an outstanding record. Standing at the top of his class for the four years, he always found time to help his classmates with their studies. His many officer-like qualities and genial personality won him many friends throughout the Brigade. Don managed the 150-pound football team for three years and also was a member of the varsity gymnastics team. A future Naval aviator, he will undoubtedly prove to be an outstand- ing officer in every way. SIXTH BATTALION 269 Milwauke ROY ROBERT BUEHLER Wisconsin San Matec PAUL LAWRENCE CARWIN California A life on the water was not too great a change for Roy since his home, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, borders Lake Michigan. Following a year of plebe life and battalion wrestling his interest was turned in earnest to ocean sailing. As a climax to three years of sailing Roy participated in the Newport and Bermuda races. In the wint er his attention is turned to 150-pound football. A success in all his en- deavors, academics posed no problem as Roy has shown by three years on the Superintendent ' s List. Following graduation a wedding is planned, and maybe a try at Navy Air. ROBERT ANTHONY BYRNE Cleveland, Ohio From the fleet where he was an electronics technician, via NAPS, Bob made his way to the Naval Academy. He took a great interest in sports, participating in company fieldball, Softball, and battalion boxing. Bob had trouble with his studies, but his sub zero sweat factor always gave him the margin. Bob was never one to let little things get him down, and he took great pleasure in the humorous side of life at the Academy. His greatest thrills at Navy were the away football games and liberty ports on cruise. Trailing stories of nights in ski lodges and possessing a canny ability to tumble down a mat, Paul left foggy Frisco bay to take up residence in the " great white Kremlin. " Any subject requiring crafty use of a slipstick found a master in Paul and both the concert band and the varsity gymnastics team acquired a fine performer. With a partiality toward tall blonds, Paul was a frequent dragger at USNA. Should there ever have been a time when his beloved hi-fi set was working, it would only take him a few minutes of tinker- ing to put it completely on the blink. With his tremendous ability to finish the job, Paul will be a welcome addition to the Fleet. 270 SIXTH I GORDON CHARLES CASWELL Kalkaska, Michigan With his Rock ' n Roll records under his left arm and his bugle under the right, Sordy arrived on campus. Fresh from high school in Kalkaska, Michigan, he always did well with the studies. After a good plebe year and a loose youngster year, first class year was one big blast. With G. C, the woman question was always present. The only problem was, " Which woman? " As for the future his plans and sights are set skyward and to Navy Air. BERNARD JOSEPH CAULEY Los Angeles, California Bernie, a native of Los Angeles, entered the Naval Academy after two years at Loyola University. No stranger to the military, (six years of ROTC plus five in the CAP) Bernie still had to adjust to Navy ways. Fencers at Canoe U. will always remember Bernie for his outstanding performance during three years of varsity competition. During youngster year he won the Maryland State Epee Champion- ship. This victory was not without its price; three weeks were spent recovering from a puncture wound of the chest. Bernie ' s name will remain legend among Navy ' s drags. Weekends were spent at his favorite sport of playing the field. The fleet will welcome Bernie as a capable junior officer. DAVID GARY CHEW Falls Church, Virginia Gary has spent his entire life in the Washington, D. C, area and was accepted to the Naval Academy after his graduation from Falls Church High School in Virginia. He has an appealing sense of humor and is well liked by everyone who knows him. An ardent athletic participant, Gary contributed a great deal to his company and battalion sport squads. He was also a member of the Antiphonal Choir for four years. Upon graduation, Gary plans to enter the destroyer fleet and will undoubtedly make an excellent career officer. BATTALION 271 HENRY GOODMAN CHILES Baltimore, Maryland A true Southerner, hailing from Richmond, Virginia, and one of the more prominent men of his class, Hank made it his constant effort to excel in athletics, as well as academics. He became well known for his constant hustle and competitive spirit. Lettering for three years, after pushing out a firstie for a starting job youngster year, Hank became a big asset to the varsity lacrosse team. For conditioning Hank took up varsity cross-country during the fall. An honor student in high school, Hank was consistent in making the Superintendent ' s List, as well as earning his stars, while at the Academy. An underwater enthusiast, Hank plans a career in sub marines. ROBERT JOHN COLEGROVE Rochester, New York Beaming in proud admiration of his hometown, the Lilac Capital of the World, Coley rode initially through Academy portals aboard a bus bound from NAFS. Punctuality could not be listed as one of his attributes, but a more cheerful member of the early risers did not exist. Thoroughly interested in the sports program, Bob stroked a mean starboard oar for twelve seasons of varsity crew. Unforgettable, however, was his locker door which boasted the pictures of the score of dolls which he escorted throughout his four year tour of duty here at USNA. As for the future, Bob definitely has his heart set on a career in Naval Aviation. PEMAOUIO POINT WILLIAM GLENN COUNSIL Detroit, Michigan Bill has been an outstanding member of the Brigade since his arrival plebe year following a year at the University of Michigan. His academic ability was the envy of many of his less adept class- mates and invaluable in aiding the underclasses. When not actively engaged in matters of a military nature, Bill could be counted on as a member of the illustrious flying squadron. His drags were always a credit to his standing as a midshipman and more than one of them was attracted by his pleasant personality. Bill will be a welcome member of any organization and a person to be relied upon. dk 272 SIXTH WILLIAM DILLON CRAVER Sulphur Springs, Texas Dirty Dusty Dillon from " Big D, " the Texas ambassador to Annapolis, entered the Academy via a year at Paris Junior College, a semester at Panola Junior College, and the Navy ' s " Sea Bees. " Navy bought his books and sent him to school, and the boy from down south came through. His easy ways and friendly personality easily won his classmates ' friendship. Since the facilities for coon hunting were inadequate at the Academy, Dusty turned to being Company Representative, Honor Representative, a member of the Italian Club, and a lady ' s man. One can easily see that with his ability he will be a definite asset to our Navy. THOMAS GENE CURTIS Detroit, Michigan With trombone in tow, Tom left Detroit to reminisce of high school days in " Big D. " Tom roughed second class summer leave in the mountain villages of Greece drinking resin-flavored wine. A staunch member of Bancroft ' s " Let ' s be Ivy " movement, Tom ' s other self, better known as Johnny Spanish, could always be expected to move us with his recollections of leave nights spent in Greenwich Village. Tom will be well remembered for his haunting passion for slim girls. His dead-pan may have won him many sympathizers, but his dry wit and humor carried us through many dreary moments at Navy and won him countless friends. CARLOS ALFONSO de La GUARDIA Panama City, Republic of Panama Carlos came to the Naval Academy from his native Panama after a year of prep school in Langois, Oregon. He will be best remembered as one of the few whose sense of humor never failed. In the field of sports Carlos was an outstanding soccer player with the unerring ability to score the deciding goal. With girls Carlos proved he was a typical Latin, but only cared for one certain young miss. No matter where he goes Carlos is sure to get ahead, and to be successful in whatever he undertakes. BATTALION 273 JOSEPH CHARLES DOBES Cicero, Illinois Joe is a mild mannered, good natured boy from the notorious city of Cicero, Illinois. He was one of the more brilliant members of our class, standing in the top five percent. Joe played an im- portant part in many of the extracurricular activities at the Academy. He was on the Class Ring and Crest Committee, Trident, Drum and Bugle Corps, and attended the Science and Mathematics Seminar. Joe was also known as the tutor for the class of ' 60 in the Twenty- second Company. He is sure to go far in the field of his choice, Naval Aviation. THOMAS EDMUND DOHERTY Brooklyn, New York With a short delay at Columbian Prep, Doc came to USNA straight from high school. He can best be remembered for his phenomenal athletic ability. Playing Plebe and J.V. football were a small part of his sports career for he was the backbone of both the company fieldball and basketball teams. After athletics his favorite sport time was " playing the field " and could be seen each weekend with a different drag. Academics generally gave him little trouble, but the skinny department sometimes made him study more than usual. His future plans include Navy Line and there is no doubt that good sailing and calm seas will be with him always. PABLO ESTEBAN DURAN Panama City, Republic of Panama Pablo, coming to the Academy via the Republic of Panama, has made himself well known throughout the Brigade during his stay here at the Academy. Panama has a fine representative in this Latin-American who will be an asset to his country we are sure. Pablo was an excellent swimmer and led his teammates to many victories while at the Academy. After graduation Pablo will return to Panama where he intends to marry and take graduate work in Maritime Law. After which he will be connected with Panama ' s merchant fleet which is among the largest of the world. We at the Academy only hope that our relations with Panama can be as pleasant as they have been with Pablo. 274 SIXTH RICHARD DUANE EBER Detroit, Michigan Dick arrived at the Naval Academy after working six months as a draftsman. He put his experience to good use in Marine Engi- neering and was always ahead of his class in drawing. During the last half of study hour Dick always found time to write a certain letter, even if a double weight quiz followed the next day. With the excep- tion of a call to general quarters with the executive department second class year, Dick was the stalwart center of the sixth battalion football team, and from winter to spring he enjoyed hibernation. JAMES TEIGEN EILERTSEN Huntington Woods, Michigan Jim had never seen salt water until he came to Navy . . . and judging from Youngster cruise, he wishes he had never seen it. Coming straight out of Royal Oak High School, he came to the Academy with a thirst for knowledge . . . working hard at every task which confronted him. Afternoons found him out for varsity sports, either on the cross-country course, on the basketball court, or running trac k but his evenings were usually spent playing bridge or writing letters. Every leave he headed straight for Detroit and those big parties up north. With his open heart and his ready smile, for him we confidently predict a career of purpose and accomplish- ment. i i fc Tooele, WILLIAM EUGENE ELLINGTON, JR. Utah This tall Texan called Tooele, Utah, his home town. Bill left his levis and Stetson in the Bonnevelle Salt Flats to join us here at Navy. This aeronautical wizard could be found on most weekends with his unlimited supply of aeronautical magazines studying a new aspect of aviation. Being a chief proponent of the " longer beds for Bancroft " movement, Bill ' s real claim to fame was his ability to make the longest possible trip in the shortest possible time, motivated by his desire to be near his OAO. With his easygoing and casual attitude Bill settled down for a successful four-year tug of war with the system, making many friends among those on whom rubbed off his relaxing manner. BATTALION 275 JACK HAMILTON FERGUSON Tecumseh, Oklahoma Fergy entered USNA after high school to become a Mark 60, Mod 2.50 midshipman. His frequent clashes with the academic de- partments did little to upset him, however, as uncanny good fortune seemed to rest on his shoulders. Summer cruises were the highlights of his stay here. During Youngster Cruise he decided Navy Line was not his first choice and that Brazil would be nice to return to. Second Class Summer increased his preference for the Marine Corps and Navy Air. Becoming " foot loose and fancy free " during youngster year, he soon began to find time to drag frequently. An amiable personality will be a benefit to him and the service which he proudly joins. ROBERT AUGUSTUS FISHER New York City, New York Robert A. Fisher entered the Naval Academy from the state of New York. Born in Flushing, he was raised and educated in New York City and he entered the Academy directly from high school. Once at Navy, he concentrated not only on academics but extra- curricular activities as well. He was an officer in the Chess Club and was active in the French Club. Previous experience with a rifle was put to good use by Bob on Navy ' s rifle team. Bob ' s future plans include Naval Aviation and the " girl back home. " RAYMOND NAGLE FITZGERALD West Hartford, Connecticut After a year at the University of Vermont where he was a member of the ROTC, Fitz tired of playing games and decided that he wanted to see the real thing. So he checked in at Hotel Bancroft where he instantly felt at home. Although versatile in most sports, he was most active in battalion handball and company football. Being a whiz with the dollies, he sailed forth into a whirlpool of feminine affections at every liberty call. His Irish origin showed through in his fun loving personality and his ability to take a joke as well as play one. Fitz yearns for a place in the Marine green with wings. 276 SIXTH i±r 11% ' ROBERT LOUIS FREEHILL Mek Bob is one of the youngest men in our class and came directly from the thriving metropolis of Melvin, Illinois. With a Jimmy Stewart smile, a good sense of humor and a consistently bright spirit, he is indispensable to any gathering whether at a party or on cruise. Bob was known never to be counted out of a game of bridge or pinochle: he never did like to study. Every weekend found Bob dragging some new good-looking girl whose name was one of many in his " little black book. " Bob looks forward to a bachelor life — for a while — and a pair of highly cherished " wings of gold. " VANCE HEWITT FRY Chattanooga, Tennessee Vance came to us from the hills of Tennessee after one year at Tennessee Polytechnic Institute and one quarter at Georgia Tech., where he was enrolled in electrical engineering. He likes to dance and in addition to attending many hops he served on the Brigade Hop Committee and the Ring Dance Committee. His sports included plebe wrestling and battalion football. Vance spent most of youngster year lying in the rack but still managed to achieve an outstanding academic record that year, as in all the others. After rooming with a Yankee for four years, Vance lost most of his southern accent and love for hillbilly music, but he is still a true rebel and plans on marrying a sweet southern belle after graduation. BATTALION 277 JOHN HARRISON FULTON San Francisco, California John hails from the far off Golden Gate metropolis, and although he ' s one of the youngest men in the company it has certainly had no adverse effect on his standings. He began to sweat when they hit 3.5. Plebe year he kept a crew shell in trim as coxswain. His spare time was divided among the Math Seminar, French Club, and playing polyglot. This language interest was well augmented by the congenial atmosphere of Sao Paulo on youngster cruise. John plans on going Navy Line upon graduation. HEISEY ELLIOT GARDNER Fayetfe City, Pennsylvania Hice, a native of western Pennsylvania, attended Bullis School before coming to the Academy. He seems to have kept himself perpetually short of money by spending nearly every cent he had either on classical records or hi-fi equipment. As far as sports go, Hice has spent four years as an outstanding member of the light- weight crew squad. His humor has made the many hard workouts much easier for everyone on the squad. During plebe year he had the honor of being one of the eight who stroked the lightweight shell on to victory in the Freshman National Championship. This was the first time the feat had been accomplished by the Academy. Hice plans a career as a Naval Aviator. LEWIS CHAPMAN GILLETT, JR. Hopkinton, Massachusetts Lewis is a quiet likeable fellow, who can be considered a friend after only a brief acquaintance. He favored the athletic side of the curriculum, playing soccer for the last three years, and partic- ipating in wrestling and soccer in his plebe year. He ' s also been an important cog in the company fieldball team, during the off season. He isn ' t well known for his slashing at academics, but by hard work, Lew has compiled a good average for the four year course. We are sure that he will be on the top in his chosen field of Naval Aviation. 278 SIXTH •::: ; ::-: JAY TROY GRAFTON Danville, California Jay T. came to the " School on the Severn " from the University of California at Berkeley. Since then he has devoted most of his time to sports — track during the winter and spring and battalion football in the fall. Many evenings found him either down in the concert band room or else doing work for the Public Relations Com- mittee. For a time it appeared as though he might go into the Marine Corps, but after second class summer, he saw the light that gets all flyers and decided on Navy Air. ft y SAMUEL JAY GREENBERG New York City, New York Sam came to Navy from New York after a brief stop at the University of Wisconsin to get a tasre of how the other half lives. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone who asked, and could always be depended on as a friend in need. In addition he served well as a company Lucky Bag representative. He ' ll be re- membered for his excellent taste in drags, as he was never seen with anything less than a beautiful girl. He was known as " The Ace " during Aviation Summer, and we all wish and are sure he ' ll have many " Happy Landings. " ROBERT HUNTER GRIDLEY Wilmington, Delaware Grid, just 5 ' 6 " tall, is an outstanding athlete. He has lettered three times in both golf and 150-pound football. Well mannered and extremely well liked by all his classmates, he has served well as a midshipman striper within the Brigade. Grid is planning his future with Navy Air and we, his classmates, feel that he will go far. Good luck, Grid, we hope you find everything you are looking for. BATTALION 279 JOHN MICHAEL HAGEN Anoka, Minnesota With a year of experience at the University of Minnesota behind him, this SAE came to Annapolis and, after having difficulty in starting a chapter, instantly adjusted to the system. Mike ' s variety of abilities and interests were an asset not only along academic lines but also in many other activities — Concert Band, Class Ring and Crest Committee, USNA Pistol Teams, The Drum and Bugle Corps, and intramurals. Of course there was always the 2.5 Bull problem. As everyone in the 24th Company knows, Mike had OAO troubles for nearly two years. However, his bulging address book will testify to his solution of the problem. As for his future, Mike always said, " Don ' t know exactly what I ' ll do, but I ' ll be wearing my Navy blue. " FREDERICK GIRVIN HALE Grants Pass, Oregon From the fleet where he was a third-class draftsman, Fred made his way to the Naval Academy. Always an ardent sports enthusiast, he could usually be found near the boxing ring or playing some company or battalion sport. Never one to cut, Freddie always found time to write letters to his good friends of the opposite sex. Fred ' s sense of humor, his desire and his ability to get along with everyone will provide Navy Air with an excellent officer upon graduation. JON DAVID HARDEN Forest Grove, Oregon Jon David Harden came to us from a great many places, being a Navy Junior. Jon is one of those guys with an innocent face and a tremendous attraction for all the girls. As a member of the Brigade he has given his all. His athletic endeavors were not on the varsity field, but they were varsity in caliber. He could be seen out on the yawls on Saturdays, and in the chapel on Sundays exercising his vocal chords with the choir. Dave has been a friend and a companion to everyone with whom he came in contact. 280 SIXTH I FRANK SEWALL HAYES Milwaukee, Wisconsin Frank, a native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is a big, affable fellow who is an avid, almost fanatical sports fan. As an A- 1 student Frank could be depended on to have the skinny and steam problems done the day in advance. He always put out 100% whether it was playing football for the Sixth Battalion or doing a good turn for a friend, of which he had many. In Frank the Naval Academy is sending the Marine Corps a potential commandant. i member i MARSHALL LEE HEARD Plattsburgh, New York In four years at the Academy, Marsh has given freely of his time to company activities while also playing varsity squash. Anyone can recognize him by his general friendly nature and overwhelming attachment for sports cars. Marsh drove sports cars in competition before coming to Navy and by the way he races his around, you would think that he is still driving them. He has not only proven himself competent in sports cars, but also very definitely so in aca- demics. No course has been too difficult for him, and no matter how deep in study he is always willing to give aid. These attributes should help him to go far in life. 4 Jk Abi HAROLD EDWARD HENNING Kansas Probably the only man in the history of Navy who could smile when papped, " Harry " came to USNA after spending a year in the enlisted ranks of the U.S. Navy. Being a native Kansan, he naturally had to take a lot of kidding about the " Wild West, " but his friendly character made it easy for him to endure. His active membership on the Reception Committee helped many visiting sports teams find their way around the Yard. Although studying took a lot of his free time he still managed to get in his favorite sport of sailing. Harry ' s easy-going manner won him many lasting friends here at Navy, and never let it be said that he let studies interfere with the important things in life. IXTH BATTALION 281 DENNIS JOHN HICKEY IV Davenport, Iowa Dennis was born on the tenth of May in 1938 in St. Louis, Missouri, but he now calls Davenport, Iowa, his home. Before coming to dear old USNA, he attended high school in Davenport. At the Academy he professed to have no hobbies but women and always kept the mail stacks full with letters to the outside. A four year stint on the Reception Committee kept him in touch with our con- temporaries on the other side of the wall. He plans to go Navy Line after graduation. 3 MICHAEL DANIEL HORNSBY Austin, Texas A southern gentleman, and very proud to hail from Texas, Mike entered the Naval Academy after graduation from McCallum High School in Austin. The academics were never much trouble for Mike, therefore, he had much free time for extracurricular activities. An outstanding golfer, he earned his letter on the varsity team for three years and had the satisfaction of defeating Army. Other interests included the Foreign Relations Club, Math Club, Boat Club, and for four years Mike was on the Trident Magazine staff and served as co-editor of the professional department of that pub- lication. Pretty girls were an important outside interest of Mike ' s; he always had a pretty young lady for all occasions. In the way of after graduation plans, Mike seems to favor Marine Aviation. TERRENCE CLARK HUBBARD Groton, South Dakota Terry, who hails from Groton, South Dakota, spent one year at Northern State Teachers College in South Dakota, where he majored in football and campus life, and minored in engineering. During his four years as a midshipman, " Hub " has found plenty of time for sports and student activities in addition to high grades. Plebe soccer, battalion track and football still left time for his services as battalion chairman of the Brigade Reception Committee and the Log staff. Actually, he admits that weekends come first in his choice of activities. Hub assures us that Navy life is quite different from his many years hunting deer and pheasant in the hills of Dakota, but still prefers Navy Line. No doubt his ambition and drive will lead to high success in the years to come. 282 SIXTH FRANK MARTIN HUNT, JR. Seneca, South Carolina Frank came to the Naval Academy via two years at Clemson College. Born and raised in South Carolina he was one of the staunchest backers the South ever had at the Academy. Frank dis- tinguished himself in academics, but always found time for extra- curricular activities and his hobby, hi-fidelity. He doesn ' t have his eye on any particular girl now, but he is known as a suave operator and will surely settle down before long. Everyone knows Frank has a great future before him and will be a credit to the Naval Academy wherever he goes. WILLIAM THOMAS INDERUED III Wilmington, Delaware Tom came to the Naval Academy following a year of schooling at Severn Prep School. Since his high school days he has wanted to go to the Naval Academy. Tom hails from Wilmington, Delaware, one of our small neighboring states here by the shores of the Severn. He has been very active in sports, enjoying success in both varsity basketball and lacrosse in his three upperclass years. Tom has always joined in the lively activities during these four years, and his friendship has extended throughout the brigade. Upon graduating, Tom plans to further his service career in the sky at Pensacola under Naval Air Training. Yonla CARL RICHARD INGEBRETSEN New York " Ingie, " the smiling Marine, has always been more than somewhat enthusiastic about " the Corps. " After prepping at Prince- ton, Parris Island, and NAPS Carl spent his time rallying up a pretty fair academic average in his years at the Academy, as well as obtaining a reputation as quite a swimmer. He was never seen without a big grin, and he missed exactly zero hops in his whole dragging career. With his solid ideas, wide smile and his legion of friends, " Ingie " will go on to the top in the Marine Corps. BATTALION 283 GERALD MORGAN JOHNSON Seattle, Washington Jerry, an Army brat, came to Canoe U. from Seattle, Wash- ington, via Sullivan ' s Prep School. He is a quiet fellow who never could be found without food in one hand or the other. At times we thought the Academic Department was going to sink him, but he managed to pull through with flying colors. His ramrod bearing and impeccable dress were noticed throughout the Brigade. Jerry worked hard to hold up the traditions of the Naval Academy. He will always be remembered by his classmates as a fine friend and will not go unnoticed by his future associates. ANGELO NAPOLEON KARAMPELAS Pocatello, Idaho Born in the sunny clime of Modesto, California, " Ang " had lived in most of the states west of the Mississippi before coming to Navy from Pocatello, Idaho, via the University of Michigan. With his carefree manner, undaunted by plebe year, Angelo was an active member of the wine, women, and song set; that is, as long as it was Greek wine, Greek women, and Greek songs. Angelo was chiefly noted for his overflowing enthusiasm which was an asset on the athletic field, in the academic departments, and in winning the respect and friendship of all those who knew him. JOHN THEODORE KAZENSKI Jersey City, New Jersey Twenty-three years have passed, since John Kazenski sneaked into Jersey City, New Jersey, just a day too early to become a Christmas present. Ski joined the Navy in 1954 and reported to the United States Naval Training Center at Bainbridge, Maryland. Upon completion of basic training he attended the United States Naval School of Music in Washington, D. C. His chance to advance from rate to rank came in August 1955 when he entered the Naval Academy Preparatory School. He has made a musician ' s name for himself at the Academy participating in the Drum and Bugle Corps, Midship- man Concert Band and the NA-IO. Ski ' s preference — Navy Line. 284 SIXTH GENE PAUL KESLER Salisbury, North Carolina Gene came to Navy after spending a year at North Carolina State and found things quite different here at USNA. Always ready with a smile, Gene was as likeable as they come, as long as he was not losing a few pounds for his antics on a wrestling mat. He could always be found with one hand in a cribbage game and the other one on his pipe. Not one to give up easily or without a good battle, Gene will be a welcome addition to Navy Air. CHARLES ROY KIGER Washington, Kansas Chuck came to us from the plains of Kansas and brought along some of that easygoing Mid-Western philosophy. After graduating from high school, he attended Columbian Prep before entering the Academy. Chuck loaned his voice to the Antiphonal Choir for four years and his brawn to the 150-pound football squad for three years. As a boxer he also traded punches with the best in the Brigade for three years. Chuck studied no more than necessary, which left him plenty of time to break the hearts of many young girls in the area. Chuck also had little trouble becoming one of the more popular men in the Brigade, and the silent service will certainly be the one to benefit. RONALD LEE KOONTZ Aspers, Pennsylvania Ronnie came to Annapolis from the Pennsylvania Dutch settle- ments north of Gettysburg, in Adams County. Ronnie was an out- standing member of his high school class, the class president and football captain. His athletic abilities brought him to the attention of a Navy scout, and he was recruited for Crabtown-on-the-bay. From the beginning Ronnie had to hit the books a little harder than many of his classmates, and the determination he displayed will serve him well in the fleet. The Academy gave Ronnie his first contact with military life, and he should prove to be an asset to whatever phase of that life he chooses. His natural ability in sports and his friendliness have earned him a great number of friends who will not forget him and their four years on the banks of the Severn. BATTALION 285 ELMER MONROE KOPP Hanover, Pennsylvania Elmer came to the Academy after a year in the Navy, during which time he studied at the Naval Academy Preparatory School. He calls Hanover his home town. There he won four letters in football and during his senior year he was elected captain of the Eichelberger High School football team. Elmo was always one of those people who never ran out of friends, because he was always making new ones. A career in Navy Air upon graduation and a bachelor ' s pent- house apartment upon retirement are this young man ' s goals. Cer- tainly a credit to his class, he will be always remembered by his classmates. AXEL MARTIN LARSEN, JR. Syracuse, New York Easy going with a quiet personality, Skip made his way to the Academy via Admiral Farragut Academy. He claims Syracuse as his hometown, and for good reason; those trips back there always meant something big brewing. While on these wonderful leaves, Skip could be found skiing or participating in a boat race. Skip, who is an ardent Air Force jet jockey, believes that the best machine in the world is a high flying jet. JOSEPH FRANCIS LAW Camden, New Jersey Joe arrived upon the sacred shores of the Academy after a year in the fleet. His cheerful attitude could certainly be attributed to the fact that he rarely missed a weekend of dragging " his one and only. " As far as studies were concerned, Joe found very little difficulty in making the arrows point up. In the field of athletics he could always be counted on to give an excellent performance. Upon graduation, Joe is looking forward to a career in the Navy, following in the footsteps of his father. 286 SIXTH HENRY ANTHONY LAWINSKI Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Henny, as he is known to everyone, is now beginning his career as a Naval Aviator. However, the Navy way of life is nothing new to him. After graduation from Roxborough High of Philadelphia, he enlisted in the regular Navy, and following a short tenure at NAPS, he entered into these hallowed halls. Both varsity wrestling and 150- pound football answered his call to athletics. His outstanding achieve- ment, perhaps, was his election to the presidency of the class of I960. Although the academics proved to be a struggle at times, his hard and diligent efforts afforded him to come through with flying colors. ROGER WILLIAM LLOYD Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Bill came to the Academy via two years at George Washington University and a year with the Navy in which he attended the Naval Academy Prep School. Being a true Pennsylvanian, he has made his mark on the Navy gridiron playing on the plebe team and on The varsity 150-pound team. Having little trouble with academics, he has been able to give many of his classmates a helping hand in this department. Bill ' s outstanding sense of humor and practical jokes have made him many friends throughout the Brigade. Plans upon graduation include marriage to his OAO and Marine Air. KENNETH WILDER LOVELAND Honolulu, Hawaii Coming to our fair factory from the University of Alaska, Ken found little difficulty adjusting to Navy life and won many friends with his keen sense of humor and readiness to help his classmates. After surviving the rigors of plebe year the following years presented virtually no obstacles to Ken who always found time for a quick bridge game or a cat-nap between classes. Although Ken tried to keep the breweries in business while at the University of Alaska, after two years at the Academy he finally whipped himself back into condition revealing his hidden prowess on the 150-pound football team as center and defensive linebacker. Following in his father ' s foot- steps, Ken intends to go Navy Line. BATTALION 287 GEORGE MAHARADZE MARR Northport, New York George came to USNA from Northport, New York. During the three years that passed between high school graduation and plebe summer, George attended Colorado A M and then entered the Navy for one and a half years. Not many people are able to approach a 4.0 average in Dago, but George managed a 4.0 average in Russian his youngster year. The YP squadron was promoted as a division of the boat club, and George, a loyal " stink potter, " imme- diately joined the squadron. During his few free minutes, he could be found either in the YP ' s engine room or in the pilot house. After graduation, George plans to go Navy Line. JOHN ANTHONY MARTIN Mullens, West Virginia Tony, the " what me worry " type, never believed he was com- ing to the Academy until he had actually arrived. He had spent three months in NAPS in a " self-study " (pocket novel study) course as a " breather " after ET school at Great Lakes. Once he had physical proof of his status as a mid, he immediately began to develop techniques for beating the system, which was his favorite pastime. After getting into a few close scrapes due to his bad memory, (he invited more girls per weekend than he could diplomatically or safely handle), he picked the " apple of his eye " to wear his coveted class crest. Then he settled down to do battle with the Academic and Executive Departments. ROBERT EARL McAFEE Kirkwood, New Jersey Bob, a southerner from New Jersey, came to the Naval Academy after a year at Penn. His ROTC days gave him all the qualifications of the " unsquared-away " plebe. The class of ' 57, how- ever, seemed most receptive to Bob ' s repertoire of carry-on questions on naval history. But in addition to his jump on first class Bull, Bob was also known as bowman on the lightweight crew team. According to Bob they almost found the source of the Severn River some of those nights. Mac ' s only problem with academics were those of his classmates. Should Bob ' s success i n the Navy even approach the fine record he achieved as a Midshipman, he will have no problems ahead. 288 SIXTH TED McCLANAHAN Kettering, Ohio Ted is mild mannered, easy to get along with, and a true ■friend in every sense of the word. Academics was never a problem for Ted and he always had plenty of time for sports. He was also a great competitor besides being a natural athlete. He was a " standout " on the Sixth Battalion football and the Twenty-third Company football and basketball teams for four years. Being a native of Ohio, Ted always defended the " Buckeye State " and the Mid-West in any argument. He is easily satisfied and very seldom he has let something get him down. The future for Ted lies in Naval Aviation. He plans to become a " jet-jockey " after aviation training at Pensacola. RALPH GORDEN McCLARREN Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania When Mac came to the sunny shores of the Severn four years ago, he brought with him an excellent background and his own version of the English language. Unfortunately this conflicted with the stand- ards set up by the steam department. Due to their effort, he became known as the Academy ' s first illiterate star man. When Mac wasn ' t wrestling with the dictionary he played an active part on the Varsity and Battalion wrestling squads. Having an interest in sailing, Mac spent his spring afternoons on the Severn with the company sailing team. His fame was made the day he joined the sea gulls on top of a dolphin only to be toppled from his perch into the murky waters by a knockabout. THOMAS WESLEY McCLURE Seal Beach, California Tommy came to Navy Tech from Huntington Beach Union High School in California. After six months in the Marine Reserves, " Tiger " was not only vicious at the tables as a plebe but was also in the coxswain seat of a lightweight crew shell during his four years here. Aside from reading an occasional book or studying, Tommy found time to serve as Company Log representative. He could always be found taking an active interest in the many Navy sports contests. Graduation will find Tommy fully prepared to make a good officer in the fleet. BATTALION 289 JAMES MICHAEL McCONNELL Monterey Park, California The best thing anyone can say about anybody is, " He is a great friend. " With his ability to give and take a joke and considera- tion for others, Jim will go out of his way for anyone who needs his help. Although Jim is tilled with plenty of that " grey matter " — he sneakily occupies the Supt ' s List — he is also an all-around athlete. " Jimbo, " a native of California, is always ready to admit that his homeland is God ' s gift to the USA. Jim ' s favorite pastime is just barely making formation. He has an intense dislike for wasting time standing in ranks before the late bell rings. It is an incredible fact that he has only been late twice. Jim plans the submarine service as his choice in the Navy. Pemaquid Point JOHN MICHAEL McNABB Midlothian, Virginia This pleasant Mid came to USNA from the fleet and NAPS where he excelled in the intricacies of Navy life. He was quick to establish himself as one who was always ready to give a classmate a helping hand and a friendly word of encouragement. " Mack " amazed the world with his uncanny ability to pull his classmates out of a glum mood — yes, a goodwill ambassador of the highest order. As a truly sincere guy with gals, a veritable multitude of them, " Mack " spent many moments writing noble epistles. With the realiza- tion of his dreams, you will see him screaming overhead in a Navy jet. THOMAS ALFRED MEINICKE Phoenix, Arizona Having spent most of his life in the Black Hills of South Dakota, Tom was forced to give up his sheepskin coat when his family moved to Phoenix, Arizona, at the beginning of his second class year. His biggest problem, certainly not academics, was finding room in his locker for another 8 by 10 of his OAO. Tom didn ' t spend all of his time thinking about his sweet miss, just most of it; he unofficially holds the Brigade title for the most letters from a single gal. His ability to make quick and intelligent decisions will assure him of a successful career. 290 SIXTH MICHAEL THOMAS MIDAS Lansford, Pennsylvania Mike, a fair-eyed, red-haired lad from Lansford, Pennsylvania, joined the Brigade after serving fifteen months in the regular Navy. During his high school days, he lettered in football, basketball and track, and previous to his fleet appointment, he continued his athletic pursuits at NAPS. Here at USNA he has played four years of Navy football. Mike ' s achievements do not stop at athletics; he was elected treasurer of the class of I960 and was constantly pushing the Superintendent ' s List. He is an avid " dry-fly " fisherman and in his spare time he loves to tinkle the ivories. Being a confirmed tin-can man, his motto could well be " Navy Line is mighty fine. " ALLAN WALTER MURRAY Glencoe, Illinois Al came to Navy after two years at the University of Illinois where he relinquished a USAF commission to join the regular Navy and subsequently NAPS. He adopted chess as his main varsity en- deavor, being able to conquer all comers without the usual strain and concentration that goes with most chess players. Al never found the studies to be really very difficult and always had time to devote to his favorite pastimes of shooting the breeze and letting off excess steam in a handball court. He had an intense pride in his personal appearance and, one way or another, injected this same pride into others. Al always put his heart into his work and gained the respect and admiration of all who met him. p JAMES JOSEPH NEAL Huntington Park, California Jim came to us from California, after a year in the relaxed collegiate atmosphere of UCLA, to become a Marine officer. A good all-around athlete, Jim found it difficult to choose a particular sport at Navy, but each season found him active in some varsity activity. His studies and numerous scrimmages with the fair sex have kept him busy these past four years here. With Quantico and possibly Pensacola ahead of him, the Corps will find Jim as fine an officer as we found him a friend. BATTALION 291 WARD JAMES O ' BRIEN Aurora, Illinois Arriving at USNA after graduating from Marmion Military Academy, Aurora, Illinois, Ward quickly became well liked for his friendliness and gentlemanly attitude. This does not mean he was not athletically inclined. On the contrary, the Irishman was Navy ' s number one diver on the swimming team for three consecutive years, taking second place in the Eastern Intercollegiate diving competition his youngster year. Also, during the off season, Ward could be found very actively engaged in gymnastics and tennis. Ward ' s intelligence, attitude, and physical abilities will make him a welcome addition to the Naval Aviators of the Fleet. CHARLES STAFFORD PARKER Baton Rouge, Louisiana Chuck came to the Academy from Baton Rouge High School in Louisiana, where he played varsity baseball. He spent the next four years of his life playing baseball at USNA, so it seems that he was a rather devoted baseball player. He also loved football, playing two years of battalion ball and in his second class year, playing 150- pound football. Chuck enjoyed his academics as much as the next guy, although his favorite subject was ' les femmes. ' Chuck, being a very easy going fellow, made new friends in no time flat. With graduation past Chuck is looking forward to his first assignment in Navy Line. If everything works out as he hopes, he will continue his career in subs. No matter what Chuck ends up doing, we all know that he will make a success of himself. NEAL GORDON PARKER Decatur, Alabama Stepping out of the black shoe Navy with the gouge on service ways, Neal came to Mother Bancroft aspiring to be a jet- jockey. Forever bristling to the tune of " Marching through Georgia, " this Alabama crew coxswain spirited many Navy lightweight shells to victory with his wit, humor, and southern drawl. Neal ' s talents in showmanship also brought him to the stage in several Musical Club Shows. Always to be remembered by his classmates and many dis- tressed members of the fourth class, Naval Aviation can well be proud to welcome him aboard. 292 SIXTH I HAROLD ANTHONY PETERSON Camden, Arkansas Pete, a true southern gentleman, calls that fine southern state of Arkansas home. He hails from Camden where he was an outstand- ing halfback during his high school days at Fairview High School. Prior to entering Annapolis, Pete attended Southern State College in Magnolia, Arkansas, where, as a freshman, he played varsity base- ball. Here at the Academy Pete has been a spark plug on his com- pany ' s football and Softball teams. He has also been seen around campus dragging many nice young ladies. After graduation Pete would like to fly with Uncle Sam ' s finest. JAMES WILLIAM PHILBRICK, JR. Brookline, Massachusetts Jim, a true son of New England, came to us from Boston via a four year tour at Andover. None of that Navy Air or Marine green for this Boston salt. His love was under the sea and accordingly he chose the submarine forces for his career. While at the Academy he sang in the Antiphonal Choir and displayed his physical prowess on the battalion lacrosse teams. Into mischief at every turn, Jim could be counted on to successfully accomplish any prank. His studies presented no problem and have given him an excellent background for an enviable career. PAUL HAMILTON PLOEGER III Darien, Georgia Paul came to the Naval Academy from Darien, Georgia, after spending a year of preparation at Marion Military Institute in Marion, Alabama, following his graduation from Glynn Academy, Brunswick, Georgia, in 1955. Paul adapted himself quickly to the ways of the Academy and became one of the outstanding men in his class and his company, always maintaining an excellent military appearance and displaying leadership and officer-like qualities con- stantly. Always an outstanding golfer, Paul helped the battalion win two consecutive golf championships and was a member of an out- standing plebe golf team before becoming a regular member and winner on the varsity golf team for his final three years. Planning to be a Naval Aviator, Paul will undoubtedly prove to be an out- standing officer in every way. irti BATTALION 293 WILLIAM LLEWELLYN POWELL, JR. Dallas, Texas The ' Old Man " of the company, Lew came to Severn Semi- nary by the way of Southern Methodist University and the Fleet. Lew was fortunate in that he had no trouble with academics, thus, he was able to devote much of his time to the rack with extracurric- ular activities running a close second. His love for sailing was also his chief interest sportswise and he took in every phase of that activity from dinghies to ocean racing. A potential career officer, his quick wit and optimistic outlook on life indicate a successful future. Sal BYRON UPPINCOTT POWERS, JR. New Jersey Bud ' s home is in Salem, a small town in south Jersey. Bud started his battle with the sea early in his last year of high school and one year of postgraduate work at Admiral Farragut Academy in Tom ' s River, New Jersey. While at the trade school on the Severn, Bud elected " bridge " as his major and chose such elementary subjects as math and skinny as minors. He was usually seen taking advantage of the privileges granted to those on the Superintendent ' s List when the weekends rolled around. His afternoons were spent playing golf or squash. Bud is sure to be a success in whatever he does and we know he will be welcomed wherever the future finds him. JAMES THOMAS PRATHER Kansas City, Kansas Jim came to Canoe U. from high school in Kansas City where he has lived all his life. As a Plebe Jim won a letter in crew and has since participated in intramural golf, basketball, and squash. Quite a congenial fellow, he was well liked by all who knew him. Jim hopes to go into the submarine service after spending a year in the " tin can " Navy. He will be a capable and enthusiastic addition to the fleet. 294 SIXTH GEORGE JOSEPH PREBOLA Millville, New Jersey George came to Canoe U. after a year at St. Francis Prep and a year at Colorado University. A native of New Jersey. George kept the tradition of New Jersey football players by playing four years on the plebe and 150-pound football teams. George ran a close race with the academic department, but always kept a step ahead. Good humored, easy to know, and always a hard worker, George never let women interfere with studies or football. Navy Line will acquire a good man with a ready smile in June of I960. JOHN ROBERT PRESLEY Tyler, Texas Bob is the lean man from Texas, who brought to USNA the fine personality that makes knowing him a worthwhile experience. " Elvis, ' as he is better known, has shown to all his versatility in sports and in music. Any typical sports season would find him a mainstay in company soccer, Softball, or volleyball. On a Sunday morning in chapel his voice could well be distinguished in the Antiphonal Choir. At almost any dance that featured the NA-IO, the golden tone of Bob ' s alto-sax would carry a melody and inspiration to the whirling dancers. Navy Line is Bob ' s line, and in that, the Navy will receive one of the best to step from the ranks of the Army Reserves, of which he was a member for two years in an artillery division. DAVID ANTHONY QUINLAN Norwich, Connecticut David Anthony Quinlan, Dave, or more often referred to by one of those lovable adjectives associated with advocates of the Marine Corps, hails from Norwich, Connecticut. It was here Dave completed his very successful high school career. Entering the Acad- emy directly from high school, this young Marine aspirant soon acquired the acclaim of his classmates by his versatility and affable personality. For the last four years Dave has been a stalwart on the Sixth Battalion football team and contributed much to its success. Besides sports, he has a real love for reading about his favorite subject, the history of World War II. Now as Dave steps out into the fleet, there can be no doubt that here is a man who will surely prove himself worthy of the service and his alma mater. BATTALION 295 EDWARD ARTHUR RANSOM Washington, D. C. Ed came to the " old grey walls " after a year of college and a brief stint in the Navy. An interest in photography led to work on the staffs of the Log and Lucky Bag. After spending youngster year " alpha " studying Goren, Ed was selected to do postgraduate work by the Academic Board — prior to graduation. He would still like to meet the famous " man on the street " to whom youngster math was so evident. Ed ' s interests included battalion football where he played tackling dummy. His outside interests were dominated by a pretty young airline stewardess. RONALD MALCOME REESE Columbia, South Carolina Ron came to Navy from high school with enthusiasm and interest. He soon picked up two nicknames, Road runner (pronounced Roood Runn-nerr) and Univac I. He was called Road Runner because of interest in track, and Univac I because of his academic achieve- ments. Ron consistently stood high in his class. This success was due to his flexible mind, careful organization and prudent use of time. His positive attitude did not go unnoticed, for Ron got his share of stripes and corresponding position in the striper organization. Univac I will always be remembered for his willingness to help class- mates who were lost in the academic storm. JOHN JOSEPH REILLY, JR. Brooklyn, New York Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Jack started his higher edu- cation at Brooklyn College. After much deliberation and many tears he finally made the big switch to USNA. His congenial smile and witty comments were always present in company sports and Reception Committee activities. During liberty hours and free time Jack could always be found in one of Brooklyn ' s gayer spots or plotting a scheme that would get him there. Jack ' s future plans are undecided but flying looks mighty good to him. 296 SIXTH ROBERT ROSS RENNER Baldwin, New York Bob, a formidable sized fellow from Baldwin, New York, sports the biggest friendliest grin you ' ve ever seen. Bob ' s got an easy humor that he carries into everything that he does. Varsity football, fieldball, and basketball all have a bright side for Bob. He can afford to see the bright side because he is blessed with terrific coordina- tion, athletic ability, and a sharp mind. He picks up good grades or a football like they were made for him. His coordination shows up well when he dances, which is inevitably with a certain lovely New York model. Bob is sure to get along well everywhere that he goes. Glendale, New ROBERT CHARLES ROHR York BERNARD FRANKLIN ROEDER, JR. Coronado, California Bernie, who came to the Academy from Boyden Prep in San Diego, has let his Navy life take hold. Being a Navy junior, he religiously prefers Navy Line, and offers a very good argument to any who differ. He was active in the French Club and Newman Club; also a good sailor with the Boat Club. His is a good record in intramurals. For four years he brought in many points for battalion handball and company Softball. He played three years of good touch football for the company, and plebe year he had a fist in the ring with the brigade boxers. Navy Line is getting a fine officer in Bernie Roeder. " What sport shall I play this season — soccer, lacrosse, or bowling? Say, anyone want some cookies? " When varsity bowling comes to the Academy it can be said that Bob did more than his share to get it started. He also devoted considerable time to the Brigade Activities Committee and the Public Relations Committee as an announcer. A happy go lucky atmosphere and a strong deter- mination not to sweat the program came with him from his home in Glendale, New York. For the future, Bob plans a career with the fleet. BATTALION 297 GEORGE CLINTON ROSS Mt. Vernon, Illinois A year at the University of South Carolina and two years in the Navy prepared George for his life at Navy Tech. Always pursued by the academic departments, he still had time for four years of intramural football. His spare time was filled with attentions from his OAO, when he wasn ' t in the rack. His interests lean toward the Marine Corps, however, circumstances seem to indicate a career in the Supply Corps. His infectious laugh and easy going personality make George a welcome member at any party and will make him a success at any venture. JOHN JOSEPH SANTUCCI Camden, New Jersey ■ Jersey, where to the all-state Jack came to Navy Tech from Camden, Ne he lettered three years in football and was named team his Senior year. At Navy, he was the standout fullback on the Plebe team. Coaching the Sixth Battalion Gridders and company soft- ball and fieldball took most of Jack ' s afternoons during his upperclass years. During the long evenings of the Dark Ages, Jack liked most to listen to his hi-fi record collection. Since aggressiveness and drive are Jack ' s most prominent characteristics, it is no surprise that he will enter the Marine Corps upon graduation. KENNETH DAVIS SAVAGE Monroe, Louisiana " K. D. " is truly a rebel at heart. A Navy Junior, his four years here at the Academy have been the longest he has ever spent in any one place. Not having spent enough time in one high school to engage in sports, K. D. didn ' t have the experience to participate in varsity sports at the Academy. Seldom, however, did he miss a home engagement in any sport. Always ready with a smile and cheer- ful thought, K. D. was a pleasant addition to any bull session. Dedi- cated to a naval career, K. D. will be a real asset to any part of the Navy he serves with. 298 SIXTH DONALD LEO SCHLICHT Manchester, New Hampshire " Moose, ' ' after a year at Brown, entered the Academy with his slide rule well greased and a brand of Eastern humor. Three Dear Johns failed to kill his humor and because the studies came easily to him, Don was able to drag at will. Don was noted for his skill on the basketball court and his passion for the Red Sox. But his more distinguished traits were the readiness at reaching the elusive logical conclusion and the ability to defend or alter his decision accordingly. His classmates ' respect will follow Don throughout his career. RAYMOND CHARLES SCHROEDER, JR. Rochester, Minnesota Chuck came to Annapolis directly from high school in Rochester, Minnesota, where he was active on the swimming team as well as many other sports and extracurricular activities. Being a person with a good understanding of what is expected of him, Chuck had no difficulty adapting himself to Academy life. Swimming and intra-Brigade sports, along with a variety of clubs, occupied much of his leisure time. His humor and spirit did much to help him gain the respect and confidence of all of his classmates. Chuck ' s two greatest ambitions after graduation are to be a good Naval Aviator, as well as a good Naval officer. ROBERT JAY SCHULZ Long Island City, New York Second class year found Bob with the nickname " A MARCONI TWIN " gained from his work in the Brigade Radio Station, WRNV. He also was a member of the Public Relations Committee. The quantity of Bob ' s noise, if not always the quality, was a great asset to the Naval Academy Catholic Choir, but he can best be re- membered as " Mr. Imagination. ' ' Here ' s wishing Schulzer " the suc- cessful career in subs which is well within his grasp. BATTALION 299 school Baylor SIDNEY LEE SCRUGGS III Chattanooga, Tennessee Sid, one of the many fine products of the ' 56 high class, entered the Academy after finishing three years at _ Military Academy in his home town, Chattanooga, Tennessee. The athletic record he set there carried him well on to a start here where he fought for Navy on the plebe soccer and track teams. The follow- ing year he moved up to a varsity spot on the 150 pound football team. Although a good student he took academics in stride; a pretty girl was always able to tear him away on weekends. The number of good friends Sid had really showed what type of guy he was — someone who ' ll always be remembered by his classmates. Submarines are his first choice but regardless of what he finally chooses he ' ll reflect credit on the Academy and the Navy with his work. STEWART RUSSELL SEAMAN White Plains, New York Known by his classmates and friends for his unusually keen sense of humor, Stew came to Navy from White Plains, New York. Adapting himself quickly to his new surroundings, " Big " Stew participated in track by heaving the 35 pound weight for three years, and also did a little running on occasion. Stew also took part in many Brigade and class activities which helped bolster up the Brigade spirit. During his spare time, Stew liked to participate in various types of sports, and could always be found on the athletic field. A tremen- dous individual with a personality to match, Stew will be a great loss to the Academy but an equal gain to the service that he joins upon graduation. JOSEPH LAWRENCE SESTRIC St. Louis, Missouri Joe, who calls St. Louis his home, came to Navy straight from St. Louis University High School. Joe was well liked by almost everyone during his four years stay at Navy except for the everpresent " Skinny " department. Joe was very active in extracurriculars and his hobbies ranged from hi-fi to very frequent workouts on the " blue trampoline. " Sports always provided a source of relaxation for Joe; he was very active in soccer, company heavyweight football, and others. After graduation Joe plans to travel down to Quantico for a brief stay before pursuing his goal, Marine Air. 300 SIXTH HUGH JOSEPH SMITH, JR. RICHARD SUTHERLAND SHAWKEY Philadelphia, Pennsylvania From out of the wilderness at Penn State come the thundering hoofbeats of our hero, Wild Dick Shawkey. But a voice is heard, " Don ' t sell the ranch. " So the Kid donned the boots of his father and stepped into one of the world ' s most honored professions, our country ' s Navy. While at USNAY Dick was active in extracurricular activities. Among them were model building, fencing, clowning, and cartooning. Dick never had any girl trouble: in fact, he never had any girlfriends. This was illustrated by his conversational ability, such as: " Did I ever tell you about my Plebe year? " Combining the qualities of natural leadership with the enjoyment of being connected with the Navy, Dick will be a shining example of the career officer. FRANCIS THOMAS SHOTTON, JR. Suffolk, Virginia Right from the start of plebe summer, Frank ' s friendly per- sonality and amiable southern accent made him many new friend- ships. His natural talent for making acquaintances made it impossible to walk through any part of Bancroft Hall with him without hearing his pleasant " Hi there, " as a classmate passed. Golf occupied most of Frank ' s spare time. He was a valuable man on the Brigade cham- pion battalion golf team before moving up to the varsity. A try at boxing during his youngster year netted him the 1957 135-pound Brigade boxing championship. Frank counts himself among those who seethe advantages in a career in Navy Line. mm. ? New Orleans, Louisiana Roaring in from the French Quarter of New Orleans with a glint in his eye and a taste for beer, the Tiger managed to last out his four years at USNA. Smitty spent a year at Tulane before arriving here. A plank holder of the Tecumseh Club, the Tiger pre- ferred dragging to the academics. Known throughout the company for his physique, H. J. was also famous for his wit. He began every day with a new joke he managed to get from somewhere. If all goes well, Navy Air will have a real character in H. J. Smith Jr. mt BATTALION 301 WALTER IMANTS SMITS Chevy Chase, Maryland ' Smitty, " as he was always known, had wanted to come to Crabtown since his high school days. Through the reserve and after a year at Columbian Prep, June 1956 found him entering the gates. Although never excelling in academics, they seemed easy compared to the skinny department. When the books weren ' t calling, there were company sports which saw him three seasons of the year. First class year saw him spending all his liberty time away from the halls with a definite goal in mind. Letter writing also helped make the time fly by for him and it wasn ' t long before he was among the other members of his class who were joining the surface arm of the Navy. We wish him good luck and smooth sailing. PAUL WHITNEY SPARKS 24th Company Passing up scholarships to more care-free institutions, Paul arrived at Navy with the Class of I960. Although right out of high school in Prairie Village, Kansas, Sparky never had much trouble with the academics. In fact, he never seemed to study, yet always wore stars. A four year man on the Gym team, Paul specialized in tumbling. With graduation Paul will be going into the fleet and then probably to postgraduate school. Sparky was a solid member of the 24th and a good friend. WILLIAM ROBERT SPEARMAN Pittsburg, Texas " Bull, " born in Pittsburg (spelled without an h), Texas, entered the Academy fresh out of high school where he excelled in academics, sports, and Texas propaganda. Eager to tear into the books and set new records, he finally succumbed to the rack. When not in the rack he could be found on the tennis court. Aviation Summer snowed him and ever since that time he has been interested in flying. What- ever Bill does, he will be a success and a credit to both the Navy and the Naval Academy. 302 SIXTH ROBERT WESLEY STEWART Bowling Green, Ohio Bob arrived at USNA from Columbian Prep and proceeded to ease through plebe year. Spending most of his time sailing, Bob has managed to gain a fine understanding of seamanship. Nearly always quiet, Bob drove his occasional debates home forcefully and logically. Destined to go into the Supply Corps, Bob will insure that we all eat well in the future. His quiet and continued support will be a bulwark any commanding officer will be happy to have. JOHN ROBERT TERRY Brooklyn, New York Although " Gramps " Terry didn ' t graduate from high school, he has proved that home town boys can make good by making his way into USNAY. After spending a tour of duty in the Navy which included a round-the-world cruise on the USS Midway, our boy won a four year scholarship to Navy Tech by guessing correctly every figure on the eye chart. While at Navy John won distinction by being twice appointed to the Tecumseh Club by having final averages of 2.50 in Dago. The last we heard he was a permanent member in good standing. With a keen interest and a high average in all professional subjects, he is certain to be the capable officer who will be ready to assume the highest responsibilities. jJk THOMAS JAMES TERRY, JR. Fairfax, Virginia " T. J. " came to Navy instead of taking advantage of a full scholarship that he had won. From the beginning Tom was the man to see when you were ' snowed. ' ' Tom ' s stars gave him a Phd in our eyes. Not content to be known as a book worm, he became an active member of Radio Station WRNV and the Public Relations Committee. First class year Tom spent hours each day carrying out his duties as Station Manager of WRNV. His never failing interest gave us an ever improved radio station. Tom wants Navy Line after gradua- tion. BATTALION 303 CHRISTOPHER ROY THOMAS Cudahy, Wisconsin Chris comes from Cudahy — within drinking range of Sudsville, Wisconsin. Upon arrival, he was a rather large example of Wisconsin health, however company soccer and water polo trimmed him down to normality in due time. He probably never will have an ulcer, because of various emotional outlets such as his regular Log cartoon feature, " Gnomes I Have Gnown. " After graduation Chris wants to fly, so it looks like Pensacola for this young lad. FRANK ADKINS THOMAS Gi idc Many places can claim Frank as their hometown boy. This Rebel social boy joined the Country Club on the Severn after a year as a " Pike " at the University of Florida. Frank has been Navy all his life as experiences with sailing on the Bay testify. The " Doc " was always good to diagnose ailments and prescribe the proper remedy. Always busy, you might have found him as the bulwark of various teams, working on a hi-fi set, or just listening to some of his jazz collection and being " cool. " His ability at conversation on any topic has won him many friends and should make him many more. JEREMIAH VINCENT TIERNEY, JR. Shenandoah, Pennsylvania Jerry came down across the Mason-Dixon line after two years at Villanova University. He decided he liked the Navy blue better than the Ivy tweeds. He loved athletics and could always be found playing basketball or handball. Studies were never a real problem to Jerry and a good thing, too, because he was always busy, especially on weekends. Although he was a stagliner he always seemed happier when accompanied to a hop by one of the fairer sex. Friendly by nature, he still maintained a certain amount of reserve and decorum that led those who met him to respect and admire him for his true worth. 3 04 SIXTH Jack acksonville, DONALD KENNETH TYLER Florida Don is a born rebel who has lived in many places, nearly all in the South and, having a taste of the Navy from his family life, came to USNA. He was one of those intramural studs, making it a habit to play on winning teams. He never did let the books give him too much trouble, or girls either, although he did spend a great deal more time with the latter. Navy Air will make a fine outlet for his easy going ambition, which adds to his likeable personality. GEORGE WENDELL VAN HOUTEN Jacksonville, Florida George came to us after attending the University of Florida for one year. It wasn ' t long after his arrival here that he proved him- self an exception to the theory that Southerners are slow moving for George joined the track team plebe summer and had an out- standing four years with the team. He proved his worth many times in meets with Army. He also showed himself to be a man of extremes for when he wasn ' t running or in class he was in the rack. Although he claimed he was saving his energy for running it is probably more likely that he was just a typical sleepy midshipman. V kir- ' - PETER REEVES VAN NESS Fort Wayne, Indiana A native of Indiana, twenty-one year old Pete was born and reared in Fort Wayne. Pete entered the Naval Academy after graduating from high school in 1956. During his high school years, Pete made himself useful on the side as a stockboy in a candy store and, of all things, a cook in a hotel kitchen. He has also made himself quite useful here as a Varsity Wrestling manager; putting to use the experience gained from a season of Plebe Wrestling. As for branch of service, there is only one service for our Pete. An avid submarine fan, Pete plans to become a member of the Silent Service. BATTALION 305 KENNETH ALLEN VAUGHN Annapolis, Maryland From McDonogh School where he graduated as the Best-AII- Around Man in his class, Arky came to the Academy and continued to excel. Besides being consistently on the Superintendent ' s List, this modest cohort of Max Bishop reigned three years over the domain of center field for the varsity baseball team and will be remembered as one of the best fielders in college baseball. Varsity cross-country was his other sport, and in his spare time Ark sang in the Antiphonal Choir, played either piano or drums for the NA-IO, and drums in the Concert Band. Ark ' s determination and ability insure him success in the Navy, and the class of ' 60 salutes one of its outstanding members. DENNIS HOWELL VIED Wyatt, Missouri Twenty-two year old Dennis, who hails from Wyatt, Missouri, was one of the main entertainers of the twenty-fourth company. He could be found almost every Saturday evening holding a jam-session with his guitar. He graduated from high school in a class of twelve in 1956, and came directly to the Academy. He was active in the Newman Club and helped work at many of the club ' s tea fights. An ex-stockboy in a grocery store. Dennis plans to go into Naval Aviation. He has been a valuable asset to the Brigade and will surely continue his good work as an aviator. EDUARD LUDWIG von FISCHER III Beloit, Wisconsin From the way that von Fischer The Third talks of climbing mountains when he ' s not here at Navy, one would think that he is far from being suited to his choice of submarines. On the other hand, after residing in Mother " B " for four years, he should be able to take the close quarters. Ed has been active both inside and in the great outdoors. His interests vary from working on the Log staff to rowing and sailing. There are times, however, when the weekend yawl races put a crimp into his continuous battle for and against the opposite sex. Choosing the Navy as his career, Ed will give the Service a very versatile and well rounded officer. 306 SIXTH HENRY von KOLNITZ, JR. Columbia, South Carolina When Henry came to the Naval Academy he brought with him the easy going, likeable personality of a true southern gentleman. His home has always been South Carolina, where he spent a year between high school and the Academy at USC playing freshman football. A knee injury prevented Henry from trying for the Navy varsity, but he has been a leader in company football and squash as well as a member of his plebe rifle team. Not one to resist feminine charm, Henry made it a point to be present at his share of Naval Academy social events. A quiet man desiring fast action, Henry joined the men who chose their career in Navy Air. JOHN CHRISTOPHER WILLIAMS Ridgewood, New Jersey John came to the Naval Academy from Ridgewood, New Jersey, after spending one year at Holy Cross. He is known as " Bear, " " J. C, " and " Big City " throughout the Brigade. After playing plebe lacrosse, " Bear " moved up to the varsity lacrosse club and spent three years clubbing his opponents to defeat. Sports car driving is his most cherished hobby and he was the president of the Automotive Engineering Club first class year. Among his many interests skin diving and listening to jazz with Coleman Hawkins at the top of his list, rank number two and three next to the sound of growling engines. Af ter graduation, " J. C. " plans to enter the Air Force and fly the fastest planes in the world and also to reach his goal of becoming a test pilot in the new space age. JOHN DOUGLAS WILLIAMS Waverly, Iowa If you were looking for an intelligent argument on any subject, you did not miss talking to John! His specialty was current affairs; in fact, he was usually ahead of the news. This Midwesterner was so excited about the Academy that he entered within a month after graduating from Waverly High School. During his four years John had a hand in a variety of activities: Drum and Bugle Corps, Foreign Relations Club, Musical Clubs, and " a bit of extracurricular early morning running during fourth class year. " John also enjoyed tennis, golf, track, and dragging; and despite the rumors, he did study on occasion. John, like any good Academy grad, plans on being a top- notch Navy Line officer, preferably the nuclear type! BATTALION 307 JOHN MICHAEL WILLSEY Norfolk, Virginia " Big Mike, " born here in our dear, unforgettable Crabtown, arrived on the banks of the Severn fresh from another town dear to the hearts of many of us — Norfolk, Virginia — where he excelled for four years in academics as well as on the basketball court. Mike ' s fondness for the opposite sex was only surpassed by his love for tennis. You could always be sure of finding him out on the tennis courts. Mike will always be remembered for his affable outlook on life. He was a true friend who would always go out of his way to help a friend in need. Mike is firmly convinced Navy Air is mighty fair. To a guy with Mike ' s qualifications and outlook on life, no pinnacle is too high to be climbed. JAMES RUSSEL WILSON Altadena, California Jim Wilson, son of Captain R. L. Wilson, attended Columbia Prep before he entered the academy June 25, 1956. During his stay at the academy Jim made a name for himself by his fighting spirit. This was apparent as he lettered in varsity 150-pound football. Jim ' s prowess was apparent on other fields as he was known to " drag " some of the best looking girls ever to spend a weekend at USNA. After graduation Jim expects to go Navy Line and perhaps to destroyers. PEMAOUIO POINT WILLIAM HENRY WILSON St. Petersburg, Florida No one chose a more difficult means of acquiring an educa- tion than Bill when he came to the Naval Academy via the Fleet. While Bill studies hard during the week, he never lets academics interfere with any of his extracurricular activities. Many afternoons of hard work with wrestling and track have given him a fine reputation as an athlete to complement his reputation as a talkative sailor from St. Petersburg. This handsome sandblower ' s most admirable trait is his most obvious — he is always ready with a helping hand. 308 SIXTH BATTALION THOMAS TINKER WISHART South Bend, Indiana Born in Phoenix, Arizona, in 1936, Tom has lived in the four corners of the United States in typical Navy junior fashion. After completing high school in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, he studied en- gineering at the Rice Institute in Houston, Texas, for two years be- fore joining the Brigade. An active boat club member, Tom ' s sailing activities were highlighted by his participation in the 1958 Newport to Bermuda Race. The winter season has kept Tom occupied holding down his spot on the varsity rifle team ' s traveling squad. He also played squash for the company and worked on the Trident staff as professional editor. Tom will be a welcome addition to the E.D.O. officers of the fleet. JOHN SANFORD WOODARD San Diego, California Starting as a Navy Junior in Washington, D. O, on 26 May 1938, with a last civilian stop in his adopted home town of San Diego, California, Woody was lifelong Navy bound. Everyone having his own niche at Navy, John found his in yawl sailing. Using his back- ground of plebe fencing he was always ready to lead the boat ' s boarding party; and should prisoners be taken, to torture them with concert band violin. With that mighty fine Navy Line ahead, John should, in only four decades, rise to retirement. 309 w SLkA Morally, Mentally, Section Edited bv THOM hysically M. ANDERSON Through study and practical instruction to provide the mid- shipmen with a basic education and knowledge of the naval profession: to develop them morally, mentally, and phys- ically — . " We all recognize this as the opening paragraph of the Mis- sion of the Naval Academy. Perhaps, as plebes, we thought of it merely as ammunition for use as a question asked by some upperclass- raan. Then we began to see, as our training and learning progressed further, that our duties consisted of the carrying out of this mission to its fullest extent — to hasten our mental and physical growth while proceeding to develop our characters brought here from homes where our parents and teachers had carefully nurtured them. At each and every chapel service, during our classroom drills, studying in our rooms in Bancroft Hall, and in those often strenuous physical training drills, the way towards being a gentleman, a man, and a true Naval Officer was pointed out. We were first provided with a strong base upon which to build as we studied chemistry, physics, electricity, higher mathematics, history, government, foreign languages, engineering drawing, and other subjects designed, not to turn out engineers or physicists or historians, but to lead into and supplement our professional subjects such as navigation, ordnance, ship design, naval history, and military law. Our education was planned, not to give us a wealth of knowledge concerning one subject, but to give us a storeroom of building blocks with which we are now sent out as junior officers. It is now left up to us to use these building blocks in order to provide the officer corps with capable young junior officers, worthy of advancement and able to receive the responsibility of the defense of the nation upon our shoulders.

Bennett, H. J. Rotrige, J. E. Seim. 314 RELIGIOUS EDUCATION To serve our country faithfully, we must serve our God faithfully. A great many of us can look hack on those Sunday mornings following weeks which made us wish we had never left home. Reciting the Prayer of a Midshipman, listening to the Chaplain ' s comfort- ing words, and hearing our magnificent choirs gave us back our desire and strength, and we faced that next week with increased determination. This peace of mind was not only to be had on Sundays, for the Chaplains were always ready to greet us as Christian friends, helping us to meet our prob- lems and face our sorrows and disappointments. I H 315 Although it is not the purpose of the Naval Academy to graduate engineers, neither is it an ob- ject to withdraw us from the engineering field. As a matter of fact, much of our four-year curriculum, cer- tainly the most difficult part, consisted of engineering subjects. ENGINEERING J 317 Now we can look back upon plebe chemistry, youngster physics, and strength of materials, calculus, metallurgy, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics. We should be able to see why we investigated electricity, electronics, and ship stability along with these many others. 318 ENGINEERING It behooves us as naval officers to have this basic knowledge in many fields. We are enabled to studv further and are given the instruments to make ourselves better men and more capable officers. • Mr i WA V B fl =al ll s -2 319 tfrtfW SOCIAL SCIENCES. Admiral Wright gave us his tr ted and successful hints concerning good leadership and the steps leading to it. 321 m ' " irma m T y 2 The requirements of a basic education include that one must have learned to read with comprehension, speak with clarity and preciseness. and to think quickly and ac- curately. 322 SOCIAL SCIENCES From composition and literature we progressed to European History, foreign pol- icy, government, economics, naval history, and finally advanced composition and literature. Not only did we struggle with a foreign lan- guage such as Russian. Spanish. Italian. French, or German: we also fought to master the English language in speech class and at after-dinner speaking engagements. By these studies and recitations the foundations for our future careers were further strensthened. 323 324 PROFESSIONAL In our last two years, as second class- men and first classmen, we were finally con- fronted with the challenge of our future pro- fessions — that wealth of professional know- how, material, and fact that remained to be learned. Although we could only start to learn, we soon became fascinated and sometimes even frustrated with that art called navigation, its charts, tide tables, current tables, nautical a manacs. delta-D sight forms, parallel rulers, star finders, etc. 325 4 S r. PROFESSIONAL « t 1 W hile we learned how to find our ua about the seas by consulting those heavenly bodies, we also were discovering that there was more to firing a salvo than pulling thr trigger. Ordnance and Gunnen present ' .] its every nut and bolt to us and we soon had some knowledge of present naval weapons and those of the future. We all realize that we have only touched on the stockpile of information and knowledge available to us and we all must strive to be leaders who " know our stuff. " 327 HYGIENE Carrying out our duties and responsibilities to the best of our abilities required many long hours of hard work, study, and play. These long hours dictated the need for excellence of health and physical condi- tion. Bv means of annual physicals, periodic dental appointments, and indiyidual visits to the doctors in Sick Quarters, we maintained a careful check on our state of well-being. Over in MacDonough Hall and the Field House, the Physical Education Department not only conducted tests to determine our physical and athletic abilities such as the agility test, the physical aptitude test, and the mile run. but taught us many of the survival tech- niques of keeping afloat while in the water or of protecting ourselves bv use of hand-to-hand combat. Although those gruelling tests up in the natatorium. the wrestling loft, and the boxing rings were not much fun at the time, perhaps we ' ll see the real value of them in the near future. Each one of us can honestly say that we have been well instructed and counseled and we are able to take care of ourselves. 328 ' J £ tgj 2SB3S3£ The Yard Section Edited by MARK MELVYN (,OLDEN During the course of our four-year stay here at the Academy, each one of us is struck at one time or another by the pres- ence of the yard. Something about it will make us pause and reflect its significance. It may be the tradition of its monuments, the beauty of its buildings, or even the glory of its nature. There is some- thing there for everyone which will etch itself deep in the memory. But the Yard is not a personal thing confined for midshipmen only. It is, in fact, the most public area we have here. Every visitor, every tourist, every midshipman is first greeted by the lawns, the trees, the construction, the memorials which make up our yard. And this first impression is usually an impressive one, for all is arranged with a sort of beauty and magnificence. But there are many intangi- bles that the Yard has to offer, intangibles that go unnoticed by the casual visitor but which are most important to us. Of these intangibles are included the traditions, the heroics, the victorious spirit, the strong character which have represented our Navy and our nation since their births. A moment ' s reflection on the meaning of the memorials and symbols which surround us daily serves to remind us of those traits which have made our country great. In fact, these meanings have a universal application. They are a guide to a better world, a means for a just peace. They hold before the world the deeds of great men, men of that caliber which is beneficial to every nation. The Yard may change her physical appearance, but her lessons remain the same. We will remember her well, for she is a great part of the everyday life of a midshipman. But more important, we must remember her meanings. These are a part of her, and are that part which we will carry with us and which will aid us as we all leave for different ports. 332 H «« ' . •£S - . " ._ 333 334 -„. 335 336 337 t. ' .

In some respects they have heen the longest four years of our lives, but in other respects we have hardly been able to keep track of the fleeting time. In these four years we have matured, gained some knowledge, learned some practical skills, and developed physically. They have probably been the most important four years of our lives. During this period at the Naval Academy, we have accomplished many things. We have been taught the fundamentals of infantry drill, exposed to the joys of sailing, and shown the meaning of honor and discipline. We have been tutored in many subjects from mathematics, thermodynamics, and electronics, to history, literature, and foreign languages. We have been instructed in professional matters from leadership and meteorology to ordnance and gunnery. We have cruised as enlisted men and as officers. We have lived with marines and we have lived with aviators. There is a tremendous diversity of experiences that we have undergone in our four years. But along with this diverse instruction, along with this extensive training, we receive much more. Words such as honor, character, integrity, and leadership take on a new meaning. Their concepts al- most become living things. Their development is stressed daily and their importance is second to none. Our four years here have given us these and they will stay with us as long as we need them. They are our most effective weapons for conquering the trials of life. With the academic, physical, and character development which we are given at the Academy, we are well prepared to face any future task. Our four years have begun to ingrain in us those qualities which are manifested in great men. These qualities will enable us to take our places in the world, to make it a better world, to aid us in aiding all men. 344 from all corners of the nation . and all walks of life -. I " ' 1 IPS yp 345 The Beginning This is where we began — after the prelimi- nary physicals, the entrance exams, the telegram of congratulations from a hopeful congressman, the letter to report for induction — this was the begin- ning of four years of preparation for a service career. 346 The first week produced perhaps the great- est change of life and routine that any of us will ever experience. After being sworn into the Navy in Memorial Hall, we returned to our rooms and the undertaking of plebe summer routine. The unending stenciling process, the preparation of a neat locker, the first formations and infantry drills, and the early morning hours came as a great surprise for most of us. Here occurred the dependence upon the letter from home, a feeling which would exist for the remainder of our time at the Naval Academv. Practical drill was the keynote of our summer training program. Everything we engaged in was pointed toward giving us a firm foundation for the military, professional, and academic training we would receive in our next four years. In our first contact with the Executive Department, we were taught the fundamental close order drill procedure, and we spent much time on Hospital Point trying to attain near perfection. The Ordnance Department contributed to our early training in day long drills at the rifle range. v 348 irion for the In our fa I poceota, )in! trw lo In seamanship, we started at the beginning and literally worked our way up. From the drills in whale boats, we progressed to the knockabouts and yawls, and finally to the motor driven launches. We had flag and semaphore drills and were fortunate enough to receive a little down to earth philosophy from a wise old sailor by the name of " Shorty " at our jackstay drills. In be- tween all of this, we managed to learn how 7 to weld, turn a pattern for a stuffing box gland, and later cast one of these same masterpieces. 349 Ii VIE-SEPTEMBER ' 56- ' 57 Plebe yeai began, but the rest of the world continued on its way. As in all years, history was written throughout this year. The Andrea Doria collided with the Stockholm . . . Needles icon the Kentucky Derby . . .

The sound of those two bellowing words presented no music to our ears. Plebe year, itself, presented many unsurmountable problems and try- ing situations for the majority of us. But in the final analysis, we all considered it a worthwhile experience. The evenings spent braced up in an upperclassman ? s room, the varied professional questions, and the many innovations such as shov- ing out. conducting flight ops. and the uniform races, all were a definite part of our first year. For the midshipman with a good sense of humor and solid motivation, plebe year was simply ac- cepted as another necessary step toward the final goal. ■ ' ■ 1 As part of the Naval Academy ' s role of good will and world cooperation, many foreign dignitaries visited us dur- ing 1956-1957. as in the previous years. The first thing we thought about was the grant of amnesty for the minor offenders, but our sincere hospitality was really a way of telling such men as King Saud of Saudi Arabia that we believed in a free and peaceful world. 352 the brighter side . . . » leallv » Plehe year was not completer) academics and professional work. The football season, with its away trips to Baltimore and Philadelphia. helped to add hope considerably. The big game with Army ended in a 7-7 tie, resulting in only one week of carry-on. hut Christmas leave was jusl around the corner. Our first leave meant reuniting with families and friends, seeing familiar land- scapes, and generally a well-earned break from the daily academy routine. ■ 353 Leave ended all too quickly and we were soon into exams and the " Dark Ages. " The re- mainder of the academic year was characterized by Saturday sports events, the exchange of class rates with the first class on one hundredth night. Spring Leave, and a great amount of studying. 354 1 JUNE WEEK . ; 3 1fS J f- iS F • ■ -. . ' •. Jk- . ' a ' Wlf: ' 57 With final exams at the end of May. the finish of the year was in sight. After attending the Class of 1957 ' s ' " No More Rivers " ceremony, we enjoyed our first Academy June Week. Being able to drag to the Farewell Ball and move up to 3 c midshipmen provided a successful end to an eventful plebe year, a year which marked another milestone along: the road to a commission. « - ir m-v - II: 1) J Youngster Cruise Youngster Cruise provided many more new experiences for us all. We were soon to find out that it was not a pleasure cruise dedicated to letter writing and sun bathing. We were underway in our first contact with Naval fleet activities and procedures. We be- came regular seamen, standing enlisted men ' s watches, carrying out their daily duties, and man- ning their positions during gen- eral quarters and gun-firing drills. - ? 357 in Norfolk, Virginia, and the International Naval Review was our first stop. Assembled in Hampton Roads were ships from nations over the entire face of the globe.

L % ? 3 359 Vie had the unique experience of changing from a pollywog to a shellback as we crossed the equator on our way to Brazil. After the pre- crossing warnings and threats which we were given, the shellbacks finally had their chance. We met the royal court of King Neptunist Rex. We crawled through garbage chutes and got paddled, and we were finally dunked. But at the end of the day we were full-fledged shellbacks and could look forward eagerb to our next crossing. 360 r 2 Sunt §r jrtfwZV H (fmbrrra CA 8-2 : i - it jinneiiftrr K ji fcUeJwJ J. fci o HAVING Mill FOUND ■ ONEOFOUJtTRUSTYSIIfUfACUHEHASKFll DUIV IHmATID INIO JN dIcmmi jlhistcrics of thr Ancient .eVocrnf the " Dtq « Si 1. , -..----• - 361 Copacabana and Leblon . . .

Mervyn? Getting back in the swing of things at Ban- croft Hall meant coming in contact with many new experiences. As we unloaded our cruise boxes and talked over leave and sea stories with our friends, we noticed that there was now a class lower than us. We were also promised many things which were soon to come true, such as Dilbert Dunker drills, many new and difficult subjects to study, and still limited rates and liberty. We were con- sidered plebes with carry on. but were very will- ing to accept this new role. r 365 Part of new youngster rates. Third Class year produced the chance for us to indulge in some of the many pleasures we had missed during the previous year. When we were not studying, we were able to hit the blue trampoline, surrounded by a hi-fi background. Be- ing able to drag on week-ends and having a little more free time to relax meant a great deal to us. With the beginning of this social life, we found the truth in making a little bit of money go a Ions way. Soon another football season was upon us. and quite a memorable one too with a visit from " Ike " at the 150 lb. Football Game, a victor) over Army, and a win over Rice in the Cotton Bowl. With that win over Army the Plebes car- ried on. and we all settled back to wait for leave to come, which wasn ' t too soon at all. It wasn ' t that we didn ' t like USNA, but just that . . . well. you know how it was. 367 AWAY THE REINA ' Twas a 12 November 1057 when the ' " fastest ship in the world " was unfastened and slowly moved away to her final resting place. Named in honor of Queen Mercedes of Spain, the ship was built at Cartagena. Spain, in 1887 and served under the Spanish flag until she was sunk at Santiago, Cuba. She became a unit of the United States Navy when she was raised in 1899. It was customary for many years for the station ship to serve as " brig " for mid- shipmen being punished for serious infractions of USNA Regs. During this period of con- finement these mids attended all regular drills and recitations, but slept in hammocks and ate aboard the Keina. This practice was abolished only as late as 5 September 1940. Since September 1940. the ship was used as living quarters for the enlisted per- sonnel assigned to the Naval Academy. The Reina had another claim to fame in that it was the only ship in the U. S. Navj which had the CO. and his family living aboard permanenth . 368 The Reina wasn ' t the onl) old friend that we said goodbye to this year. On 31 March 1958, after countless icars of devoted service to the Navy, Chief Metzger, known to all his friends as " Shortv. " retired. The legend of Shorty and his wisdom will long be told and remembered. The profits of his advice will for- ever be reaped. Farewell to an old friend ! B then the smell of spring was in the air. announcing the end of our second year at Navy. Old hands that we were b now. we took exams in stride and prepared for the festivities of June Week. In- cluded in these was the preparation of the Herndon Monument for the Class of " 61. a job long awaited by both ' 60 and 61. Full dragging privileges added to the enjovment of that fun-filled week. 369 2 Summer k Scarcely had the cheers at graduation died when we formed up and embarked on LST ' s for our trip to Little Creek. Virginia, and the TRAMID phase of this summer. At Little ( " reek, we received and participated in two and one half weeks of Marine Corps Amphibious indoctrination. We studied and operated in the wave landings, the helicopter phase, and the primary beach tactics. At the close of TRAMID. we conducted a full scale amphibious attack on one of the Virginia beaches. r- % ' ■■ ' a - - - - 3t ' •(,-.„ 371 From TRAMID. we split up and went many different ways, some on leave, some to the Academy to help indoctrinate the new class of plebes. while the rest of us continued on our own training program. This part of our summer program consisted of field trips to aircraft corporations and a visit to the Dam- age Control School in Philadelphia. Penn. At the aircraft plants, we saw everything from the present production lines to the future plans for the Space Age. In Philadelphia we were instructed in all phases of fire fighting and damage control procedure. Our tours of places of research and development could hardly be complete without a visit to the worlds largest towing basin, so our journey included a trip to David Taylor Model Basin. 372 i I Pensacola was the highlight of the sum- mer training for many of us. the warm wel- come we received was only a preview of things to come during our stay in this Gulf city. We came here to learn the fundamentals of flying, and the many hours spent in the T-34 ' s. T-28 ' s. and T2V ' s played a large part in our work. As necessary precautions, we also went through the ejection seat trainer, as well as the high altitude pressure chamber. The story of naval aviation could hardlv be told without some mention of the importance of helicopters, and so. in this field also, we were fortunate enough to receive an amount, brief as it was. of training and instruction. i IjJLa -G ££ ' 65 8 H,0SH,W « BWP AC11S 9i SSI m P Efc $74 ■ : " " ' -.v- ' - ' ' - f 4 To increase the scope of our well-rounded education, we were also given training in othei areas, mainlv beaches, dance floors, and Officer s Clubs. Southern hospitality was in full bloom during our stay in Pensacola and helped to make second class summer most enjoyable. wL mim J M J • ■ IB ■ ijrfltlA i n iimt .F j . From Pensaeola. we moved to Jacksonville and vicinity for a short but enjoyable stay. After learning more about the fighters and attack squad- rons, we flew blimps at Glvnco. took a long envious look at the Crusader Squadrons at Cecil Field, and finally, had a short cruise on a submarine at May- port. In all ways our Aviation Summer was a success, giving us a clear and concise picture of how the Navy Air branch and the Marine Corps were working toward the L . S. goal, that of peace through World Cooperation. m I 1 J ' U.S.NAVY A - f ■ .. - " T3 J i Will 1 1 SAN | ki ' l)S k Again there were the normal social aspects of our training, high- lights of which were the fabulous dance given at the Prudential Build- ing and a trip to Marineland in nearby St. Augustine. + ■ C- . ■ ' - SEPTEMBER-SI I ' IKMBER Secoml Class year came into being and with it brought many surprises in the world of news.

Traditionally, and rightly so, this was our hardest year academically speaking: the by- word of the year was " study. " For the first time, we felt the brunt of the truly professional subjects, as Ordnance and Navigation came into our curriculum. Here, too. we were allowed a larger hand in helping to indoctrinate the Plebes, though there still were many restrictions gov- erning us. ■v I I 1 j go fe Construction Days . . . The wheels of progress churned, and with them. Mother Bancroft and her surroundings began to undergo quite a feat of facelifting. Many ' s the time when the thumping of a pile driver or the toot of a dredge barge in the middle of the night reminded us of the work being done. The landfill was a tre- mendous project and one well needed. At the same time, our own Memorial Stadium was quickly becoming a reality after decades of planning and saving. Named the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, it now stands as a tribute to those men who have been so faithfully devoted to the service of their country. x? ■ i i ■Jt. i By this lime another successful foot- ball season was well underway. The Thursday night pep-rallies, the team send-offs, and the march-on ' s all became a definite and enjoy- able part of our fall lives at Navy. But we soon had only a few days before Christmas Leave, and though the studies con- tinued, we still found time to enjoy the Christ- mas Hop. Handel ' s Messiah sung by our own choir and the Hood College Choir, and make those all-important travel reservations. 382 c ;.V: fP Ml ' w 4 I «w " m - • » i We were again into that time of the year when it is dreary and there are no leaves on the trees or in sight. The daily check for mail from home, the extra dutv. and the shenanigans with the model of the Polaris and the plebes were all a part of our Second Class year. 200th Night, the number of days before ' 59 ' s graduation, was marked by an exchange of rates by us with the Plebes. and gave the plebes an opportunity to sit at the other end of the firing line. WELCOME WOO POO I Definitely one of the more important events during our four years. Exchange Weekend was awaited by all of us. Through the visit of the Long Gray Line here, we were afforded the oppor- tunity of showing off our insti- tution with full pride to our Army contemporaries, and of giv- ing them the insight on our lives as Midshipmen and fellow future officers of American Armed Forces. ► jpja8 ,j. m ' I bsb- fr S AND THIS WAS WEST POINT - The highlight of Second Class year was the long-awaited Ring Dance. This event was more than this, for it marked the climax of a story within a story — a tale that grew ' as ' 60 aged. It began many months prior to this day when the first sketches of the Ring Committee gave form to our Crest. We pro- ceeded from receipt of the Crest to ring try- ons and finally reached the milestone when 15 April 1959 arrived and brought with it the treasured rings of another Naval Academy class. 388 During the last few remaining necks before the big night, preparations for the famed dance were well in order. The Ring Dance Committee worked feverishly to trans- form MacDonough Hall into a colorful world of Oriental atmosphere. 30 May arrived and the yard began to be filled with girls in formats and mids in " yachting dress " as the photographers frantic- ally worked to take pictures of our class. That night we nervously sat through the Ring Dance Dinner, and by its completion, the orchestra of Ralph Marterie teas already prepared for the start of the dance, so it began. The dance was characterized by an end- less line through the two large rings. As each couple stepped into the ring, the girl placed the class ring on the midshipman ' s finger, and thus lias the climax of the story within the story — our Ring Story. The ending? Never. For always and always will this symbol of work, perseverance and endurance be with us as an eternal reminder of our four years. mik i 389 390 ' . :. — First Class Cruise — at long last: Here marked our first taste of officer life, a preview of things to come. Youngster cruise was spent in the role of enlisted man . . . Here was our opportunity to see the hardware of our Weapons Department and the tactical maneu- vers of our Navigation Department put to practice. , . . But now we were to realize how the other body of a ship ' s force lived, worked, and played. The inevitable watches were still there, but now they were as JOODs, Asst. C1C Officer. Engineering Officer. and other comparable billets. 393 Blow negative to the mark Some of us were able to enjoy a submarine cruise, and it was here that many hearts were won by the Silent Service of our Navy. Diving, surfacing, snorkeling, and periscope approaches soon became commonplace during our indoctrination to this way of life. Despite the cramped quarters and close living, we all ad- justed rapidly and began to appreciate and admire the vital role that submarines have in our modern Navy. By the end of cruise for many of us, this admiration had been replaced by a profound desire to enter this service and win the coveted dolphins of the submariner. nt Still, there were others who were to enjoy the life of the Destroyer Navy. with Fleet Cruises in the Mediterannean. Western Atlantic, and the Far East. Prac- tical instruction was the by -word: learn bv doing — and learn we did. Our tasks were many: navigating, conning the ship, in-port watches, CIC watches and many others. Sextants, the DRT. and stadimeters became our tools, and we used them well. One found considerable work to do as an assistant to his officer advisor in his respective billet. Guide now bears The never-ending process of main- taining the logs. The value of radar was clearly demonstrated. All wa- not work, for there were port to visit, friends to make, and customs to understand. Such places are normally found only in books. We found them in France and Italy. Learning to meet people of other nations and to understand their way of life was equally as important as the professional training we received in our search for a well-rounded education. Again we learned by doing, and the visits to so many different foreign ports reaped many benefits. We ' ll not soon forget the memories of the French Riviera, of sunny Italy, of quaint Gibraltar town, and of the mystic world of the Far East.

Again it was an opportunity to become acquainted with the customs of another country — and thus again we reaped the benefits of being a Naval Officer. . $ For manv of us, cruises in the Mediterranean Sea meant visits to Italian ports and a generous amount of welcomed liberty. The Italian beaches south of Genoa on the Italian Riviera, as well as those at Tirania. Capri, and Ischia were most beautiful. The Isle of Capri itself was a big attraction with its pic- turesque and colorful scenery. For beauty and culture, the cities of Rome and Florence were high on our lists of places to see. The memories of the great cathedrals such as St. Peter ' s Basilica, plus other ancient structures such as the Colosseum are ones we shall never forget. gm ' " Tf. wnpf Year World history continued on its way as our last leg at Navy began.

Marked by the passing of so many " lasts, " the coming months were to be the busiest ever. These were the times of the After Dinner Speaking sessions, those sleepy Hygiene lectures, the Ordnance competitions, the experiences with the oscilloscopes in Skinny lab. and those all-important commissioning physicals. Added responsibil ities were certainly in order as we took over command of the Brigade and set out on the heavy tasks of indoc- trinating a new class of Plebes. Halloween Hop Hygiene — Reveille! Reveille! Time for the quiz. This year we used the bus 404 Here was our last football season — the most memorable one we ever experienced. The early highlight of the season came with the dedication of the new Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, a long time dream of so many unselfish men. As in the past, we were still fortunate enough to follow the team to some of its away games, to Norfolk, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and again to the City of Brotherly Love for the Army game.

Though we had suffered a few losses, our spirits were undaunted; a bright ending was still to be found. By the time the Army game arrived, we were ready to find it. The decorations, the cheering in ranks, and the climatic pep rally all helped peak the spirit unlike other years. When the weekend had passed, we thanked the team for its 43-12 victory and looked forward to Christmas. 405 The passing of the winter exams left crowded library and a steady stream, be- tween Bancroft and Mahan Hall, of firsties loaded down with books were signs of the times as we struggled to finish our term papers — another milestone. To keep the game interesting, the evening lectures, so typical of First Class year, were still with us. An evening lecture by Adm. Jerauld Wright and NATO officers. 406 n " traa be- st om term [g keep tbe 100th Night 100th Night — a tradition in long standing, and as common to the Naval Academy as a Wednesday afternoon Parade.

This is the night of 100 days before grad- uation. I I the time spring had arrived, term papers were in and proverbial " coast button " had been found and pushed.

At last we were out of the woods . . . no more rivers to cross. NATIONAL CHAMPS One of the attractions of June Week is the weekend which brings the Army-Navy spring sports contests. The highlight of the season was the meeting of Army and av in lacrosse. Both teams undefeated, both teams having beaten the perennial powerhouses, both teams ready: the game was a classic. Navy was victorious with a score of 10-7 in a game long to be remembered. This Navy cinderella team had brought home the National Collegiate Lacrosse Championship and had won it at the hands of the long gray line. 418 -- - J ' BBMI 1960 OLYMPIC CREW TEAM Navy ' s Varsity Crew, the U.

Navy soared to un- disputed victory over Army in track. The skill of potential Olympian McHenry and of Lou Hilder. Rud Maxon and many others could not be matched. The baseball team likewise took the bacon from the worn out Army mule. The tennis team stretched their unprecedented record to 13 consecutive years over Army. Only the golf team fared unsuccessfully this year, but even they were not beaten until the last man plaved his last hole. And the weekend stood rmy 1. Navy 4. Earlier, in late April, in New York the Navy Fencing team won the National Collegiate Fencing Championship. Later it was announced that two ' 60 graduates. Al Morales and Joe Palletta. would com- pete in the Rome Olympics. Later, in mid July, the Navy Varsity crew- team, coached by Lou Lindsey. made a spectacular showing in the finals of the Olympic tryouts. The team, spurred with desire, with a Navy heart, and eight strong backs, defeated California going away to win the honor of representing the L nited States in the 1960 Rome Olympics.

FINAL MOMENTS feii At 1100 on June 3. 1960. the graduating class assembled in the Naval Academy Field House The class consisting of 797 members heard first an opening address by the Superintendent. Admiral Charles L. Melson. USN. The Honorable Henry Cabot Lodge. United States Ambassador to the United Nations, gave the commencement address. His excellent speech received undivided attention and touched on our future, what we should expect, and what was expected of us by the American people. Men graduating with distinction were pre- sented their diplomas individually in order of merit. Midshipman Alton Thompson and Midshipman Tracy Tucker stood numbers one and two respec- tivelv in the Class of 1960. 422 GRADUATION After the graduation ceremony the new ensigns don their officer ' s caps and shoulder boards. Tradition- ally one ' s mother and one ' s girl do the honors. While the plebes run toward the Hernon Monument, wedding bells can be heard from the Chapel. This year Ensign Lavery ' s wedding was the first of 48 to be held in the Naval Academy Chapel. The buz of activity, the numer- ous colorful events of June Week were now over, and the graduates are now junior officers in our armed forces deployed to all corners of the earth to guard our World Peace. 424 w mm ; .

" " This quote is as applicable to a midshipman as to anyone else. From the first Naval Academy Hop on 15 January 1846, just three months after the opening of the school, to the pres- ent, the " drag " has had a tradition all her own. To the midshipman, weary of study, tired of marching, bored with the ceaseless routine of his everyday life, the companionship of a young lady is a pleasant and most welcomed change. She provides him with a chance to enjoy the activities of the ard and to develop himself socially. But most important she is an ego-builder, a special pride. She will provide the most pleasant of memories along with the feeling of a little self-satisfaction so much missed in everyday life. She is so nice to be with and so hard to say good-by to. She is the special someone who invades his daily thoughts, the one who gives him the feeling that someone appreciates his efforts. And if she is special enough, she will be the one to whom he gives his class crest, the coveted pin which means so much to him. as well as to her. And, should he decide to share his career with her. he may present her with a miniature of his class ring, his most prized material possession. We have dedicated this section to those girls who have endured the rushing, the walking, all the difficulties of an academy week- end to lighten the life of some midshipman. May the girls continue to refresh, to bolster, to encourage the midshipmen as they have done for one hundred and fifteen years, and may the mid always be ap- preciative of the thoughtful young creature who does so much to complement and embellish his existence. 428 CflrmtJ-jCauu 2,ueen m 1 IKiss Joyce J J etersen Cntcaao, JJJtnois I C. ,;,;.„.

Year ' s Big Formal — The Christmas Hop Square dance, bunny hop and civilian clothes — a good evening During the normal week of workdays, entertainment and re- laxation are virtually unknown to the average mid. The weekend usually starts when noon meal formation ends, arid then the midship- man greets his girl and whoosh, they ' re off. She has become a drag. The run into town to have a bite to eat must be done with haste, because there is always a basketball game, a swimming meet, or some other sporting event to attend. After evening meal formation and supper in town, the couple step out into whatever Saturday night has in store for them. On a weekend which precedes a holiday there is usually a formal hop. Movies, a concert or a Masquerader " s show may also provide the evening ' s entertainment. On Sunday the pace slackens. After Chapel and another forma- tion, the tired couple treat themselves to a leisurely afternoon — a WRNV concert or television at the drag house. After a whirlwind weekend there is just enough time for one last goodby. and then back to the week ' s work. 431 Seen at the punch howl Gfass Grest The idea of unity and the concept of fraternal- ism were indeed important to us as midshipmen. v are men of the same profession, of the same class, with the same ideals. Our class crest is one more of the " ties that bind. " ' and since we all had a part in choos- ing ours, we all are proud of it and that for which it stands. Together with our class ring on which the crest is tied back to back with the Naval Academy seal, it will serve to remind us in the future of our four long years as midshipmen, of many deep-rooted friendships. of the need for co-operation, and of the bond between our brother officers. 432 ?! Second Class Summer Costume Hop ' JJie JKiniature Few engagement rings are as distinctive as the miniature of our class ring which many wives of Naval Academy graduate wear. The miniature does more than signif the bond of marriage: it also signifies the ties of lovaltv to the service of which the husband is a part.

Activities Section Edited by DEMS MICHAEL DAVIDSON To allow the midshipman his share of diversions from the monotony of everyday life, the Naval Academy has produced many extracurricular activities. These activities are an oppor- tunity for each midshipman to continue the pursuit of any of his special interests. They offer to us a chance to participate in almost any field of endeavor to our liking. Outside activities develop our attained talents in a congenial atmosphere free from the pressures of studies. For the music lover there are choirs, a glee club, a band, and several specialized musical groups. For the scientifically-minded, there are engineering clubs; and for the actors there is the Masquer- aders. Such fields as foreign languages, foreign relations and forensics are well provided for. If you like to write, there are yearbook staffs and the staffs of several magazines which would probably welcome you. If you have a special talent or interest, there is a place for you. We should all be thankful for the opportunities offered to us by the extracurricular activities here at the academy. In the field of our own special interest, we can find a little bit of ourselves. A chance to develop this interest is a chance to develop our own person. We can find more enjoyment in life and become a little more well-rounded. The scope of our existence is widened to some degree which is a bene- fit both to ourselves and to others. The opportunities for the pursuit of these special interests are privileges not to be taken lightly . . . our lives here being bettered because of them. 440 - . r Dr. Duncan Howlett The Naval Academy Christian Association pre- sented a fine series of bi-weekly programs in fulfilling their mission of helping the midshipman understand the importance of religion to a naval officer. Also providing a chance for Christian fellowship, these meetings featured such speakers as Dr. Duncan How- lett. authority on the Dead Sea Scrolls, as well as a variety of inspirational music from such groups as the USAF Singing Sergeants.

The Chapel Choir led the musical aspect of the Protes- tant Divine Services each Sunday morning. In addition to this regular contribution, the Choir combined with the Hood College Choir each December to bring us their beautiful ver- sion of Handel ' s " Messiah. " T. D. Paulsen, President of Antiphonal Choir L. W. Waterman and Prof. Gilley 442 CATHOLIC CHOIR The Catholic Choir presented an increased repertoire of hymns and anthems throughout the year, beautifully supplementing the Roman Catholic Chapel service. Under the direction of Joseph McCuen. the Choir made several trips, including their annual journey to Trinity College. ANTIPHONAL CHOIR Though the Antiphonal Choir occupied a position out of the view of most midshipmen, it nonetheless sang the most melodious of hymns and complemented the efforts of the Chapel Choir to add immeasur- ably to the impressive beauty of the service. Lt. Rogers and F. S. Clark 443 CLASS OFFICERS Particularly important among extracurricular effort? were those classified as class activities. Promot- ing intra-class friendship and closeness, these activities were instrumental in welding our class into a single, cohesive group, and the efforts of the men who partici- pated in them will remain as the most memorable recollections of our four years at the Academy. Of primary influence in the formulation of out- class policy and unification of the class on all matters was our group of class officers. In addition, the presi- dent was responsible for the chair of the Class Honor Committee and the Brigade Executive Committee. M. T. Midas, Treasurer; S. J. Scheffer, Vice President: H. A. Lawinski.

Memorable highlights of the committees activities were the Christmas Hop. with the gigantic tree and the tovs for the underprivileged children, and the elaborate decorations of the June eek dances. RING AND CREST COMMITTEE Perhaps the most important day in our four years came on May 30. 1959. when our drags placed our rings upon our fingers. Carrying our class crest and the Academy seal, our rings symbolized the bond of friendship and fraternity among the members of the class. We will always be indebted to the members of this committee.

BAC-60 added spice to the pep rallies by presenting such beauties as Miss Oklahoma and Miss D. C. as an added attraction. Each week during the fall, the messhall sported banners, and the trees along Stribling Walk would be adorned with signs designed to keep the spirit valve wide open. and we beat Army S 446 H s-£ Getting ready for Army CHEERLEADERS The Cheerleaders played an important part in the display of spirit by the Brigade through their untiring work at pep rallies, practice march-ons, and the games. Climaxing the year for the BAC was the bon- fire in Thompson Stadium — the rallying point for our cry of " BEAT ARMY! " DRUM AND BUGLE CORPS ■ The Drum and Bugle Corps practiced twice each week during the fall to perfect their intricate maneuvers which were put on display during the activities of our football games.

The goatkeepers usually are former members of the Football team who were unable to pla) due to injuries. The familiar sight of the gnatkit ' iH-rs and " Hill " leading our team onto the field will in it soon be forgotten. 449 This was among the largest of class projects. Early youngster year, Raynor Taylor and Buz Soll- berger were elected Editor-in-Chief and Business Manager, respectively. The remainder of the staff was chosen shortly thereafter, and the planning phase of our gigantic operation was started. From the first day. Ray threw his whole heart and all of his energy into the production of the ' 60 Bag. His work did not stop with making decisions, for he could usually he found performing some detailed part of the oyerall operation — writing copy, developing pic- tures, or laying out pages. The manner in which he lived up to the trust and confidence placed in him by the class goes beyond description, and the proof of his dedication lies in the successful completion of this book. Ray ' s right hand man throughout the production was Torry Rogers, the Managing Editor and genius of the operation. These two worked side by side through the wee hours of many mornings, and their efforts were largely responsible for making those important deadlines, which seemed to appear so suddenly. Leading section editors were Mike Lees, Ton) Lanzetta. and Jim Gorman. Tony ' s humor and reliability made possible one of the finest Four Years sections to appear in a Lucky Bag. Jim Gorman, jack of all trades, worked year round and has developed a truly inspiring sports section. His ability to work with any section pulled the staff through many a deadline. Mike Lees, Mr. Administration, made possible both the Chain of Command section and Biographies section. His many hours of untiring work in handling the Biographies section were an inspiration to the entire staff. Denny Davidson, editor of the Activities section, revealed him- self as an accomplished writer quite concious to details. Tom Anderson compiled the Academic section and left no doubt that he was the right man for the job. The indispensable item of every Lucky Bag. photograph), was handled in superb fashion by Mark Golden and George Dowell. Their excellent photographic and darkroom techniques provided the staff with a seemingly endless supply of pictures representing our four years at the Academy.

Elsewhere in the hook are several examples of his natural talent. While the editorial staff solved the problems of the physical construction of the Rag. Buz Sollberger and his staff were concerned with the financial responsibil- ities of such a large undertaking. Buz ' s natural business- like mind enabled the editorial staff to introduce manv new innovations. Dick Bapasky handled the advertising in an admirable fashion, and Circulation Manager Dave Banner did an outstanding job of selling the finished product. Buck Bonifay. Photographic Manager, acted as our liaison with the book ' s official photographer. Apeda Studios. Guiding the staff through the three vears of pro- duction were the Officer Bepresentatives.

Teamwork was the ke Tiote to the production of the 1960 Luckv Bag. The long hours and tedious tasks were transformed into a classic among yearbooks through the spirit of friendly cooperation displayed in the Luckv Bag Office. We feel that our expended effort has been more than rewarded in this book, and hope that it will help the reader recall fond memories during the years ahead.

Editor Steve Scheffer, assisted by Bob Kennedy, made sweeping changes in departing from the standard format, adding new features such as an Army-Navy Queen contest and socially inept Melvyn Flurgg. Bill Hamilton and George Dowell joined forces to give excellent coverage of our varsity teams during the sports seasons, and the picture of the Drag of the Week always captured midshipman hearts. Salty Sam always spun humorous yarns about the Executive Department and their misguided efforts, and kept his mysterious identity well-hidden throughout the year. This combination of superb phutography, art work and feature stories made the bi-weekly one of the finest college magazines, and one of which we were justifiably proud. 454 I " Sports, photos, and features " ' was the formula for the " 60 Splinter. As a result, the popular bi-weekly enjoyed one of its most successful years. The Splinter always provided interest- ing information and accurate statistics on the Varsity and intramural teams during the year. In addition, the magazine offered photos of the major events at the Academy, and periodi- cally included fiction and other features for the readers ' pleasure. i 456 The big three— T. W. Taylor.

They did. how- ever, maintain their fine tradition of providing outstand- ing entertainment for the Brigade. The fine performances turned in by the players proved the talents of the Brigade to be many fold. 458 The Masqueraders brought the first bright poinl to the Dark Ages with their superb performance of Lawrence and Lees " Inherit the Wind. " Based upon the dramatic events related to the famous Scopes " mon- key trial " of 1025. die production portrayed the climatic meeting of William Jennings Bryan and Clarence Har- row, in their courtroom battle over Darwin ' s theory of evolution. The marvelous acting of the cast and the gripping suspense attracted a full house attendance in Mahan Hall. 459 m C0 - SHOWS GRAPHS v T. L. Selden and M. J.

X AERO NAUTICAL NAVAL CONSTRUCTION D. R. Hand, F. Demchuk, and C. A. McNeill The Naval Construction Club presented noted speakers on such topics as nuclear submarine reactors, hydrofoils, and future ship designs during its regular meetings. In addi- tion, some club members conducted a research program for BuShips, in- volving the testing of various hull forms. 462 ENGINEERING CLUBS The Engineering Clubs offered an outlet for Midshipmen in the three fields — automotive engineer- ing, naval construction, and aeronautical engineering. Use of Academv facilities was allowed the clubs, giving their members an opportunity to supplement their theoretical knowledge with practical experience in the areas of their interest. The clubs held lectures and made possible movies on all technical subjects to the Brigade. In addition, the clubs sponsored a technical essav contest. AUTOMOTIVE LTION The Automotive Engineering Club gave Midshipmen an opportunity to develop their in- terest in the design and maintenance of automo- biles and their engines. The Foundry was available for their use. and became the working area for various club projects such as the race tuning of a sports car engine. The Club " s periodic meetings usually fea- tured movies of the more famous races and lectures by noted authorities in the automotive engineering field. E. L. Mangan, J. C. Williams, M. L.

Editors successfully designed the " Plebe ' s Bible " to present the latest developments in technology and eliminated some of the older and less beneficial items from the book. The Trident Society was the parent organiza- tion of many committees and clubs covering the vari- ous phases of art and literature at the Academy, and co-ordinated the efforts of each of these groups. The Society also sponsored a photographic and art contest in the spring. Artistically inclined members of the Brigade found the opportunity to express their talents in the Art and Printing Club.

The smokers in Smoke Hall and the colorful costume hops owed much of their success to the efforts of the NA-IO. With a wide repertoire, the band proved itself versatile by playing anything requested — be it Dixieland, progressive jazz, or dreamy music for dancing. Lt. Hatch, Capt. Engle, E. J.

Under the direction of Prof. Gilley, the group practiced weekly for their series of concerts presented throughout the year. Their schedule included a Christmas Concert at home, and engagements at conventions and colleges in the East. The high point of the year came in mid-March, when the group joined voices with similar groups from West Point and the Air Force Academy for a formal concert in the Opera House, St. Louis. CONCERT BAND H. L. Richey leading the band si Glee Club gives concert in Memorial Hall The Concert Band was organized to provide a musical outlet for the instrument playing members of the Brigade, but soon assumed two other important functions. They served as a pep band, playing at team sendoffs, pep rallies, football and soccer games. In addition to this important job, they presented thei- annual series of formal concerts in Mahan Hall and their enjoyable spring-time concerts in Smoke Park. During our last years, we saw radio station WRNV emerge from a small corner of Smoke Hall to their own impressive studios in the fifth wing base- ment Built and serviced bv midshipmen, radio Navv provided almost fifty hours per week of recorded tunes from popular hits to quiet studv music. On week- ends, music for the informal hops was provided by the studio. Besides furnishing the Brigade with music. WRNV supplied news, interviews, and football and basketball coverage of most awav games. WRNV Seated: T. J. Terr)-. Station Manage Maskell, R. M. Gray, R. M. Walters. Standing: C. M. Morrison, C. M.

Mavnard Ferguson and his orches- tra, and Louis Vrmstrong, drawing several thousand people for each concert. FOREIGN RELATIONS CLUB The Foreign Relations Club presented an op- portunity for the aspiring young officer to preview the world as he would face it upon graduation. The club presented main well-known experts in various areas of interest, supplemented by information presented by midshipmen themselves. Such topics as the advancing threat of Communism were con- sidered through informal discussions and lecture . Meeting periodically to discuss the military importance of developments in the politico-economic field, the Political Economy Club offered an op- portunitj for members to express their ' ' iews in the field.

Their efforts helped keep alive the Navy spirit, especially during the long period of the ' " Dark Ages. " 475 SAILING There was always a chance for those who wanted to sail to try their hand at tiller and halyard. Whether it was knockabouts or Yawls, overnight sails or afternoons on the Severn, sailing always provided enjoyment and a chance to be on the water in other than steel ships. 4 476 T 1 f . iiwa r j - vH It -r jkl J m 1 f 1 ' JH 1 T • • • ' A- ' ,t • • — I Le j fo n ' g ir, Standing: L.

From the many notes of thanks received from visiting coaches, we can feel sure that the Com- mittee did an excellent job of representing the Academy and spreading good will among the teams from other colleges and universities. PUBLIC RELATIONS COMMITTEE The Public Relations Committee was in a position analogous to the Public Information Department. It was their responsibility to provide liaison with civilian news- papers and magazines covering sporting events in the ard and other notable happenings during the vear.

Of these, the top eight engaged such teams as Maryland and Prince- ton in an eleven-match spring schedule. Highlight of the year was the inter-service academy tourna- ment held at West Point. The weekly meetings frequently included lectures by prominent players and always provided an opportunity for members to sharpen their skill on the chessboard. CLUB Under the able direction of Ed Besch. the Club often journeyed across the river to the practice ranges, and in the spring, traveled to Fort Meade to participate in the annual North- South Skirmish. Sports Section Edited by MEIW WAYNE GORMAN Ever since the days of the first Greek Olympic games, athletic endeavor has been held in high esteem by all peoples. The excitement of a contest of strength, endurance and skill is perhaps unequalled in any other field. It provides a unique stimula- tion to both fan and player which enables him to appreciate the ac- complishments of the human body. To some people, sports are a pleasure, to others they are a business. To some they are relaxation; to others they are a profession. But one thing is evident. Sports know no boundaries, for their appeal is universal. Here at the Naval Academy, athletics play a big part in the every- day life of a midshipman. Whether it be the nationally telecasted Army- Navy game or a company hand-ball match, the midshipman has a direct interest. His opportunities to participate in athletic activities are vast, and he will be sure to benefit from any such participation. What exactly is most beneficial about athletics is hard to say. Is it the element of competition, the development of a fierce, aggres- sive spirit, the desire to win? Or is it the fostering of a team spirit, a willingness to work together? Maybe it is the physical conditioning that comes from competition resulting in bodily strength and stamina. It is probably a combination of all of these, for all these help to create a better person. This creation is the greatest contribution that sports have to offer. We pause now to salute the athletes and teams we have seen at the academy. We salute them because of the diversion they have brought, because of the enjoyment they have given. We salute them for their victories, even for their defeats. We salute them because we believe better men are made because of them. 484 » 5 After posting a 4-4-1 season record and mak- ing several mediocre showings, NAVY was figured to lose the annual service classic by six points. As a matter of fact, about the only people who didn ' t expect ARMY to win were the Navy team and the Brigade of Midshipmen. However, spirit had been running high at the Academy for two weeks, and all hands expected an all-out effort by the Blue and Gold Team. They weren ' t disappointed. On the first play from scrimmage Joe Bellino took a pitchout. faked an end sweep and then threw his first pass of the season. It was inches too long for Dick Pariseau and Navy missed a touchdown on its first play. It was only a short time, however, until the Mids took Army ' s punt and marched 67 yards to score on Bellino ' s 15-yard dash up the middle and out to the sideline. Navy 6 — Army 0. After holding Army. Navy again took the punt, this time on their 36. Three plays later Bellino streaked 46 yards for Navy ' s second score of the afternoon. Navy 13 — Army 0.

Two 15-yard penalties set up Army ' s second touchdown and at halftime the score was Navy 21 — Army 12. In the third quarter Navy picked up where it left off as Bellino intercepted an Army pass and dashed 28 yards to the Army 18. Brandquist moved the ball to the Army one-yard line, and from there Bellino scored his third touchdown. Navy 29 — Army 12. A poor Army punt set up the next Tar touchdown, and Tran- chini did it again on a two-yard sneak. Navy 37 — Army 12. A pass interception by Dick Pariseau made Navy a sure bet for its sixth touchdown, and the Mids got it on a two-yard buck by Ron Brandquist who played his usual fine aggressive game for Navy. Navy 43 — Army 12! Bellino set a Navy record for the classic with three touchdowns. Tranchini turned in an impeccable performance at quarterback.

Later in the first quarter Joe Matalavage plunged from the one-yard line for Navy ' s second touchdown. In the second quarter Matalavage demonstrated his breakaway ability as he combined some power running with dazzling speed and raced 85 yards to score Navy ' s third six-pointer. Jim Maxfield got into the scoring act during the third quarter on a sneak from the one-yard ine. Navy ' s line played a fine game with George Bezek doing a standout job at end. 491 Hard-dr fullback Jim Tenbrook picks up a first NAVY, after trailing 14-0 at halftime. made a dramatic comeback to beat MARYLAND 22-14 in Baltimore ' s Memorial Stadium.

A flying tackle missed at the two and Bellino put Navy ahead 22-14. With minutes left. Maryland took the kick-off and began a series of running plays, chopping up the Navy middle for three and four yards at a clip. Navy gave ground grudgingly and when the whistle blew the Terrapins were on Navy ' s one-yard line. The victory ended a five-game famine for the Midshipmen, who were glad to see Bellino running again for the first time since he sustained a leg injury against SMU. 492 series of niMe f»r NAVY lost a heartbreaker to one of its oldest rivals, the Irish of NOTRE DAME, at South Bend. The Mids marched the opening kick-off back 89 yards to score as Jim Maxfield sneaked over for six points. Navy converted, Notre Dame scored and converted twice, and with 47 seconds left in the first half. Maxfield hit Mankowich twice in succession to chalk up Navy ' s second touchdown. Navy failed to con- vert and Notre Dame led at halftime. 14-13. In the third quarter. John Hewitt recovered an Irish fumble and five plays later Maxfield threw a five-yard strike to Dick Pariseau for six points. Navy threw for two and failed. Vfter Pariseau intercepted an Izo pass. Navy moved to the Irish 16. stalled, and brought in Greg- Mather to kick a field goal, making it 22-14, Navy. Notre Dame scored again, passed for two, and tied it up 22-22. With only minutes left, Stickles kicked the 43-yard goal which gave Notre Dame a thrilling 23-22 victory over a righting Navy team. 493 Tranchini about to connect with veteran receiver Tom Hyd NAVY, obviously looking ahead to the season ' s big one. did all that was necessary to beat GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY, 16-8. in the Navy- Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. After being held to a scoreless tie in the first half, Navy scored all 16 points in the second half. The first score came after George Washington muffed the second half kick-off on their own six-yard line. Navy held. G.W. kicked, and Navy moved from the 47 to the Colonial ' s 22. From there Joe Bellino took a Tranchini pass and ran 20 yards for the touchdown. The second score came on a three-yard slant by Joe Matalavage. Greg Mather added three points on a 19-yard field goal to finish the scoring in a Navy victory over a hard-playing Colonial Team. 494 fl A fired-up PENN team remained undefeated by tying NAVY 22-22. at Franklin Field. The Mids scored first. with Bob Correll scooting 17 yards for six points in the opening minutes. Navy stalled then, and the end of the first half found them trailing Perm three touch- downs to one. Correll and Jim Maxfield combined to bring a to life in the fourth quarter. Maxfield threw 20 yards to Correll for the Mids ' second touchdown and then sneaked over from the one for the third, making it 22-19, Navy. When Ronnie Brandquist intercepted a Quak er pass on his own 25 with only four min- utes left, it looked like Navy had snapped their three-game losing streak. A fumble mi the next play, however, set up Penn in Navy territory. When the Tar line put Penn in a fourth-down, four-to-go situ- ation, the Quakers decided to go for a tie and kicked a 15-yard field goal.

Miami found the going easier as the game progressed, and Navy began to feel the effects of heat and humidity in which thev had not winked since August.

SYRACUSE served notice of things to come on its first drive, chalking up 56 yards on short chopping gains through the Navy line. The New Yorkers scored three more times, one touchdown coming on a pass interception and run-back by Art Baker, before Navy could register on the scoreboard. With the help of a 15-yard penalty against Syracuse for roughing passer Jim Maxfield. Navy moved the ball to the Orange 25 yard line. From there Maxfield threw to Joe Matalavage. who took the ball on the five and bulled his way over to score Navy ' s lone six- pointer. Syracuse tallied again later on a pass interception by eber to complete the scoring for the day. Although playing a definitely superior and much larger team. Navy played hard football, and in the process gained more ground against Syracuse than any other team had during the season.

The outcome was in douht until the last minute when SMU intercepted a Navy pass on their own five yard line and streaked 95 yards to make it decisive. SMU marched 67 yards to score on their first offensive series, the only time they moved the hall consistently against Navy ' s line. An intercepted pass set up SMU ' s second touchdown. Joe Matalayage scored Navy ' s only six-pointer in the second quarter on a one yard plunge. In the third quarter Navy reached SMU ' s six yard line and with four downs to go, couldn ' t score. Later, on third dowTi. and with one yard to go for a first down on SMU ' s 20 yard line. Navy again lacked the necessary punch. And in the last quarter, the Mids reached SMU ' s 17. threw three incomplete passes in succession, then had a fourth pass intercepted and run back for a touchdown with one minute of play left. Navy outran SMU, 190 yards to 121, outpassed them, 125 yards to 84. had 22 first downs to SMU ' s 12. but couldn ' t punch over the big one. 498 Nil shipping Tom Albershart NAVY opened its 1959 football season, and Wavne Hardin made his head coaching debut with a decisive 24-8 victory over BOSTON COLLEGE. Dick Pariseau scored two of Navy ' s touchdowns, the first on a six yard slant over tackle and the second on a thrilling 80 yard punt return. Navy ' s third touchdown came on a 50 yard streak from scrimmage by Joe Bellino.

Al- though Roland Wommack, epee champion, was lost through graduation, and Joe Paletta. foil champion, was ineligible. Navy continued its winning ways through the 1959-60 season. Much of the credit here is due this year ' s captain. Al Morales, who won the saber championship last year in man; of the competitions already mentioned. Of course, no small part of the credit is due to the outstanding coaching of Andre Deladrier who will coach the 1960 American Olympic fencers, which include Ensigns Wommack.

The team was led by captain Rick Johnson and coached by Cdr. Gibson and Lt. j.g. Schoettle.

" v « 3? 545 Underclass Section Edited by I. FRANCIS BOMFU Naturally the greatest part of the Brigade is composed of the underclass. They are its bulk, its spirit, its strength. It is they who will someday head the Brigade. It is they whom we leave behind hoping we may have helped to guide them in ways of the highest ideals of leadership. Each class assumes a greater responsibility and a more difficult task as it advances in seniority each year. We of the graduating class have a vast new world before us with its newness and almost unlimited opportunities. For the underclass the next step is not so large, yet there is a step. Every member of every class must take the step with an increasing awareness of his duties that he may be prepared for the greater strides he may desire to attempt during his career. We leave for the underclass a responsibility to the Brigade, to the Navy, to the nation. Each succeeding class in its turn will shoulder a mandate from the peoples of our country and from the men of our Navy that the Naval Academy continue to produce young officers of the highest caliber possible. It is oftentimes easy to lose sight of the grand ideals we should abide by in the pressing problems of our daily routine. But these ideals should never be lost and the underclass must learn to appreciate and uphold them always. This requires their every- dav usage so that every graduate may be aware of their value. This responsibility continues from plebe year through graduation, for to attempt to absorb all one should know of character and honor in the final year is a folly. We hope we have led the underclass in a firm, honorable, and just manner. We hope they have appreciated the problems and dif- ficulties we have met as the senior class at the Academy. When we leave at graduation, to you the underclass, we wish a bountiful sup- plv of good luck, and hope we have in some way aided or guided you in the path of a successful career. 548 •« 1 •= sail 1961 CLASS OFFICERS President James R.

Dickens, USAF TWENTY FOURTH COMPANY 597 CHAIN OF COMMAND— Admiral Nimitz is shown affixing his signa- ture to the instrument of Japanese Surrender aboard the U.S.S. Mis- souri in Tokyo Bay in September of 1945. This momentous event represents the re-establishment of peace throughout the world, and underlies the necessity of continuing to develop such great leaders to guide tomorrow ' s world. BIOGRAPHIES— Introducing this section of the graduating class of 1960 is a photograph of the Brigade of Midshipmen taken during the march-on ceremonies preceding the Army-Navy football game at Municipal Stadium, Philadelphia, Pa. The rivalry of this contest between the military academics is one shared by naval personnel across the nation, from the ships at sea, and from all corners of the earth. The Class ACADEMICS — The photograph shown is indicative of the means by which the mission of the Naval Academy is fulfilled. The scene is that of a Midshipman in his room in Bancroft Hall studying one of the many subjects designed to produce officers of the highest order. YARD — This reproduction of Bancroft Hall wrapped in snow is only one of the memories which will be carried with us upon graduation. The traditional beauty of the Yard during all seasons of the year provided us with an unparalleled environment in which to spend oui days as Midshipmen. FOUR YEARS — Pictured is a typical scene acted out daily by Midshipmen in the normal routine of Academy life. This picture is a fitting opening to the section of the book which serves as a record of the many and varied experiences of the Class of 1960 during its four years at Annapolis. Four Years 598 FEMMES— Within the crowded schedule of a Midshipman ' s life, there can always be found time to relax and enjoy the many social functions which are a part of the Academy. This photo was taken at a reception for Midshipman stripers given by Rear Admiral and Mrs. Melson at the Superintendent ' s residence. Femmes • ■■• ACTIVITIES— This scene was taken at the 1958 Brussels World ' s Fair to which many of the Class of ' 60 were visitors during their cruises and leaves. This setting, depicting areas of world achievement and activity, aptly introduces the activities of the Brigade and sustains the international theme of the book. SPORTS— The Olympic torch shown here at the 1956 Olympic Games in Melbourne is the traditional symbol of these ancient games partici- pated in by the outstanding athletes of all countries. These represent the pinnacle of amateur athletic achievement and the photograph is well suited to introduce the portion of this book depicting the many athletic endeavors undertaken by members of the Brigade. Yard m UNDERCLASS— Many classes will follow the Class of 1960 at the Naval Academy and so it is fitting to recognize " those we leave- behind " as they have been a part of the Brigade which we lead, and they will join us as brother officers. The photograph shown was taken at a team send-off and is indicative of the strength and spirit of all the members of the underclass. Underclass ADVERTISING — This scene is one showing activity on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Individual part ownership in the industries of this country is a great part of the American way of life, and from this institution is derived another facet of the American scene — large scale advertising. Each depends upon the other and together they certainly helped to make this book a reality. The Mart 599 ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS To list individually all the credits and acknowledgements due in the production of this book is probably an impossible task. However, it is wished to make special acknowledgement to those upon whom we principally relied for professional services and for photographic assistance. We are indebted to Mr. Tom Murray and Mr. Henry Wittich, Jr. of Taylor Publishing Company, and Mr. Harry Horton of Apeda Studios for their valuable assistance in the printing, publishing, and photographic areas respectively. The color photograph of the Brussels World ' s Fair on pages 438 and 439 was made available by World Wide Photos, Inc. The transparency of the Olympic torch on pages 482 and 483, and the print depicting the New York Stock Exchange on pages 607 and 608 were furnished by United Press International of New York. Brown Brothers Studio of New York supplied the sea scene which appears on page 6. Additional sports photographs were obtained from United Press International, the Boston Globe, and from Mr. Stu Whelan of Annapolis. The color photograph of Admiral Nimitz was made available by the Office of Information of the Navy Department in Washington, D. C. Many P.I.O. departments and photographic laboratories of ships and shore facilities throughout the Navy generously supplied photographs to the staff. Chief among these were the Naval Photo- graphic Laboratories of Washington, D. C, the U. S. Naval Academy Public Information Office, and the Photographic Laboratory at Pen- sacola Naval Air Station. 600 POSTLOGUE As we end the story of our four years together at the Acad- emy, we can see the concentrated effort to mold our charac- ter to fit the difficult tasks that lie ahead of us. We were shown the ways of honor and self-discipline that we might take our rightful positions in the world today. We were guided in those paths to strong character, moral strength, and outstanding leadership. For us it is mandatory that these personal goals be reached, for to realize the ideals to which this Lucky Bag is dedicated, we must have men of strength and courage, of honor and integrity, of in- telligence and goodwill. We must have men who are dedicated, men who can cooperate, men who can see that the good of our country is closely related to the good of all nations. Our Academy is an institution created for the formation of these qualities. Its graduates can exert a profound influence on the winning of these ideals. In ending our careers at Annapolis and with these last few pages of our history of these careers, let us, you and I. as officers in the service of our country and as Americans, be particularly mind- ful of the value and importance of this concept, so that we may some day see world-wide cooperation and an everlasting peace. 601 BIOGRAPHY SECTION INDEX 83 265 265 . 83 177 129 83 38 Ablowich, D.

RICHARD RAPASK1 Certainly economics plays a great part in our twentieth cen- tury way of life. Each country ' s national policy serves in part to implement domestic economic policy, and internation- al trade plays an integral part in the employment of world resources. The navies of the free world have always performed the mission of keeping the sea lanes open in order that international trade might prosper. Economics and world trade have assumed a position of great importance, and these forces will continue to be an important means of achieving a world peace which is so necessary for the attainment of the goals of civilization. One of the most important facets of our world economy is that ol advertising. Advertising serves as an index to the state of economic development which is a measure of man ' s ingenious use of his avail- able resources, his technical achievements and his managerial skills. Advertising mav he carried on by the use of several mediums, pub- lications being one among the many. Certainly many publications are made possible or at least made more successful because of this collective body of advertisers who utilize this medium as a method of furthering their aims. Advertising has played a major part in making possible the production of this record of the United States Naval Academy ' s Class of 1960. The ultimate success of this book as both a source of mem- ories for the class and as a classic among yearbooks must be proved with the passing of time. The foundations of this hope for success can be directly attributed to the faith of those business enterprises and individuals whose advertisements appear on the following pages. 608 Congratulations to The Class of 1960 from t Official Photographer to the UNITED STATES NAVAL ACADEMY Your negatives will be kept on file for your convenience in reordering 212-216 WEST 48+h STREET NEW YORK 36, N.

These ships will be powered by newly designed B W Boilers, each with a double access cavity to the superheater. Each cavity is at least 14 " wide. One is placed within the superheater loops, and the other between the superheater and the generating bank. This design innovation solves troublesome maintenance problems when high- slagging oils are burned. Slag accumulations can be removed quickly and cheaply by water washing with every square foot of the superheater-gas sides readily reached for inspection, cleaning, or other maintenance.

A fourth version of the Crusader fighter is being produced by the Aeronautics Division. New knowledge is the springboard for most Vought projects, with many of them introducing new con- cepts as well as products — completely new attacks on familiar problems. Emphasis on research extends from the shop — where new materials and new methods of manufacture are under contract study — to pure research, which is the sole function of an entire division, Vought ' s Research Division. Here scientists are mining new knowledge from many fields, including basic research into astronautics, electrogravities and the life sciences. Vought Aeronautics is producing the near-Mach 2 Crusader fighter series, is developing the nuclear- powered SLAM (supersonic low-altitude missile), is carrving out antisubmarine warfare work for the Navy, and is represented in other fields ranging from battlefield weapons to pilot escape. Vought Astro- nautics, supplier of NASA ' s Scour research rockets, has designed a simulator to duplicate up to 17 differ- ent stresses of space flight. Vought Electronics is developing advanced antenna systems, support equip- ment and power controls, including the actuator for the Minuteman ICBM. The Range Systems Division is tracking NASA satellites, in addition to other Pacific Missile Range duties. All these activities of Vought ' s five divisions have a common significance. They are investments in the growing fund of knowledge that is going to help meet the challenges of a new decade ... a new era.

POSSIBLE LAUNCH-SITE: UNDER THE ARCTIC ICE- PACK. Nuclear subs will be able to stay submerged, navi- gate for months without refueling, launch Polaris under water. Range places new demands on navigational and capabilities. full-Scale SUB SIMULATOR duplicates complex navigational equipment that will guide actual Polaris submarines. To fit systems in restricted space, everything from cabling to 62-ton Gyroscopic Stabilizer must be " engineered " into the hull. " Dry Run " For The Missile-Launching Subs Aiming the 1200 -mile Polaris missile from a submerged nuclear sub will pose a delicate navigation problem. Engineers are solving it In a unique " underseas " laboratory. THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY of Sperry Marine Division The Navy ' s goal of " Seapower for Peace " is nearer with each step towards operational capability of the new missile- carrying submarines. When armed with Polaris missiles, these subs will repre- sent an unprecedented counter-punch capable of reaching targets 1200 miles away, from anywhere in the world ' s oceans. The Polaris concept places critical demands on the art of navigation. A sin- gle degree of error can result in a 1 7-mile error in a thousand-mile range.To Sperry ' s Marine Division— appointed by the Navy to Navigation Systems Management of the newest class of Polaris submarines- is assigned the job of assuring highest possible system accuracy. Working with the Navy ' s Polaris experts, Sperry engineers are installing, operating and evaluating instruments and systems for the Polaris at Sperry ' s " Navigation Island " — a shore-based replica of the navigation center in the Polaris submarines. Here installation and operating problems and techniques, maneuvers, emergencies, even the stars for celestial navigation, are " shot " under realistic conditions. One system is Sperry ' s navdac (Navi- gation Data Assimilation Center) — a computer which analyzes information fed to it from the navigation equipment that will eventually position the Polaris subs for missile firing. Basic to a number of the subs is Sperry sins (Ship ' s Inertial Navigation System) equipment. These and other advanced systems are being evaluated and refined. With the Navy ' s foresight in " inter- locking " all aspects of the Polaris pro- gram . . . and with the cooperation of the many leading industries which are con- tributing . . . the Polaris subs will soon be operational.

Now the combat Marine has a new tool — the GYRODYNE YRON-1 ROTORCYCLE. These first delivered vehicles are for evaluation of the many tactical uses of which they are capable: Liaison — Reconnaissance — Aerial Photography — Wire Laying — Resupply — other combat tasks. The GYRODYNE ROTORCYCLE is considered by most of those who have flown and maintained it to be the easiest to fly and the easiest to maintain tactical flying vehicle ever built. These two outstanding features will provide a new degree of mobility and shock-power to the combat Marine. The construction of the GYRODYNE YRON-1 ROTORCYCLE is such as to be suitable for mass production, thus assuring low unit cost. This feature, combined with ease of maintenance and superior flying qualities, should further facilitate the task of the combat Marine. The YRON-1 ROTORCYCLE employs the Gyrodyne coaxial rotor system which gives it the additional feature of size compactness, thereby providing ready concealment and freedom to operate within otherwise inaccessible areas.

Cheaper atomic power with (uss) Atom Age Steels before atomic power can light our cities or run our industries, efficiently, the cost of building and operating commercial atomic reactors must be reduced. The two big problems: high cost of nu- clear fuel and the need for better and less costly materials of construction. Firsthand information on the effects of radiation on steel has not been easy to come by. The start-up of the General Electric Test Reactor, near Pleasanton, California, and the Westinghouse Testing Reactor near Pittsburgh has enabled U.S. Steel to launch the first large-scale private investigation of irradiated steels. These explorations will be carried out in private test reactors, wholly financed with private capital. Today, U.S. Steel has scientists working full time at Westing- house and General Electric Atomic Laboratories; extensive applied research in nuclear steels is also being carried on at U.S. Steel ' s Monroeville Research Center. From these tests will come new and improved atom-age steels: stronger, more corrosion-resistant steels, steels that will hasten the advent of commercial nuclear power. The full effects of this vast U.S. Steel research program may not be felt for two, five, or even ten years. But, cheaper atomic power is on its way . . . because American industries like U.S. Steel are contributing to the research.

They ' re found in all commands — and include electronic ratings and many commissioned ranks. They receive (by mail from CREI) Navy-recognized electronics courses above and beyond the scope of rating courses. They pay their own tuition. They study during off-duty hours. They become better-informed 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 the first Chief Instructor at the Bellevue Naval Radio Materiel School.
