" Through Knowl- edge Sea Power ' portrays our life and goals here. For this is a dedicated life-a dedication that calls for sacrifices and travail. Today the United States of America stands as a pillar of democracy and freedom; it is our rightful and proper place. This democracy and freedom shines as a beacon of hope to people in every nation on Earth. To give the Free World the invigorating and dynamic leadership necessary, our nation must up- hold her ideals of freedom and democracy for all peoples. These ideals must be upheld at all costs, for it is from them that our nation derives its strength. An integral part of our nation ' s strength is Sea Power. Since the beginning of recorded history this has been true of nations. It is this Sea Power that we have dedicated our lives to furthering. Here at the Naval Academy is the beginning of a life of dedi- cation and service to our country; service that will help to maintain Sea Power as an effective part of our strength. Through Knowledge Sea Power has been our creed for four years. We, as countless thousands be- fore us, have striven to add to our nation ' s strength by making this creed our way of life. Now as our time here draws to a close we realize that this is only the beginning. In our nation ' s strength lies the eternal hope of man, that of peace for all time. We feel that by maintaining this strength we can help mankind to realize this long cherished dream. Humbly, we hope to see this vision come to pass, knowing that through this strength lies the culmination of mankind ' s high- est hopes. ntents Chain of Command Academics 33 Activities 89 The Yard 121 Four Years 137 Femmes 233 Biographies 241 Sports 561 Underclass 641 Advertising .705 ■f ■ d ' crihitiii We of the Class of 1963 have completed our four years of education at the United States Naval Academy and are now beginning our careers as officers in the Armed Forces. The success that we will enjoy in the fu- ture both individually and as a group will depend in the great part on the quality of our training during those years and on what we were able to take from that train- ing. Many varied forces exerted their influences, chang- ing us from individual midshipman candidates, to the Class of 1963, and finally to commissioned officers in the service of the United States of America. Every aspect of our life helped our development. The academic departments gave us an understanding of many of the elements that make up the scope of man ' s knowledge. The inter-association of the members of the class with each other and with the entire Brigade of Mid- shipmen helped to teach us to understand and appreci- ate ideas and philosophies different from our own. The sports program, intramural and intercollegiate, developed our competitive spirit and gave us the desire to win but at the same time showed us how to accept loss when it was necessary. The military aspects of our life developed our obedience to authority and our self-discipline. Our superiors in the chain of command gave us in their daily lives the example to be followed. They embodied the principles that were being taught to us. They were the models which we could follow in many ways. However, no one aspect of our life can be singled out as the cause for our development in a certain area. Rather our acad- emics, sports program, classmates, instructors, chain of command, and every other phase of our life at the United States Naval Academy contributed to our development. The result of these influences is that we have grown in knowledge, understanding, and ability and are therefore better individuals and members of society and more qual- ified officers of the Armed Forces. We are proud of the United States Naval Academy and we will always strive to make the Academy proud of us. p Chain of Command HARLAN KENNETH ULLMAN Section Editor m P ' ' -- -. 1 I 5 ' - v -..■.■• r. - v. wm % • The question of whether man serves as a maker of history or history as a maker of man has belabored the most dextrous of minds for the lengthiest of eras. At best, the answer is perhaps a compromise of the two resting not wholly in the Great Man theories nor in the fatalistic philosophies. The primary purpose of the Naval Academy is certainly not the discovery of the absolute view of history; rather it con- cerns itself with producing a graduate who can best cope with the rigors of the history he is living by relying on the best of ed- ucations and backgrounds. But the finest of talents can remain dormant and wasted unless there is capable leadership which provides for the proper channeling and cultivation of those abilities. It is from this lead- ership that purpose becomes apparent, that inspiration flourishes. And it is from this leadership that a nation becomes great. To us then, in the Graduating Class of 1963, falls the chal- lenge to which we must aspire to conquer. It is now our oppor- tunity to embark on the same precarious road that those who guide us have so skillfully tread. It is our responsibility to those we follow and to those who in turn will follow us to provide the same inspiration and leadership we know. It is our duty as part of that chain of command to continue the highest of tradi- tions which our country, our service, and ourselves know to be foundations of our way of life. And it is only un til we too have trod the winding reaches of the future, that we can look back in perspective and learn if our efforts were as successful as theirs. John F.

Spruance III WINTER SET STAFF Academics TONY DITTO Section Editor ' ■}: ' =fzsj»t Academics at the Naval Academy provide the midshipmen v ith the bases for the motto found on the academy seal— Ex Scientia Tridens— From Knowledge, Sea Power. To be quite sure that each midshipman gains the required knowledge from his four year course of instruction here by the Severn, the Academic Departments set up a most rigorous program of engineering and science combined with a goodly amount of subjects in the humanities, and insures that we main- tain the ever-demanded 2.5 grade out of a perfect 4.0, in order that the mission of the Naval Academy is fulfilled— that of providing the best professional officer corps possible for our Navy. In the past four years, we of the class of ' 63 have seen nu- merous changes and improvements to the academic system— all designed to keep our curriculum abreast of our rapidly changing times. When we entered as plebes, the old curriculum was completely mandatory, with the few exceptions being those select " validators, " men who had successfully completed a recognized course of instruction in other institutions which were the same or sufficiently similar to a course which he would be required to take here at USNA. This man could take a comprehensive examination in the subject in question, and, if successful in passing it, be permitted to validate it, that is be credited with the course here at the Naval Academy without actually taking it here. This man could now take advanced courses in that particular field or use his time in undertaking other subjects. The idea of valida- tion, has been extended more each succeeding year along with a full undertaking of the overload or elective program. Now those men who had validated certain subjects, as well as those men who desired extra subjects, maintained a prescribed aca- demic average, and perhaps hoped to attain a more specialized degree upon graduation, could participate in over one hundred extra elective subjects which were and are now offered by the academic departments. This step-up program since has been adopted in various forms by the U. S. Military Academy and the U. S. Air Force Academy. The elective program has been another step forward to help broaden the midship- men ' s education while maintaining high academic standards. As already mentioned, the overload and validator programs have greatly increased the scope of education offered to the midship- men of the underclasses and classes of the future. The pages follow- ing show scenes from our various academic departments; illustrating how midshipmen of the United States Naval Academy are preparing themselves to take their place as the backbone of our Navy ' s fleet. THE ACADEMIC BOARD Capf. H. A. Seymour, Capt. C. S. Minter, RAdm. C. C. Kirkpatrick, Capf. J. N. Reigart, Capt. L V. Young, Capt. R. W. McNitt RAdm. C. C. Kirkpatrick During each semester of the academic year, each midship- man averages about twenty credit hours worth of wori in the required basic curriculum. A midshipman ' s term, or semester, con- sists of about seventeen weeks of instruction composed of five and one-half day weeks during which the midshipman attends recitations, lectures, laboratory f eriods, and drills. The academic departments require strict attention to out-of lass study, demand- ing approximately two hours preparation for each hour of class- room time for the average student. Coordinating the efforts of the midshipmen are the heads of the Academic Departments. The Commandant of Midshipmen is responsible for the Executive and Physical Education Depart- ments while the Director of Naval Science retains control of the Command, Weapons, and Naval Hygiene Departments. For the direction of the highly technical departments of Engineering, Mathematics, and Science the Director of Science and Engineering retains control. To round out the midshipman ' s education, the Director of Social Sciences and Humanities supervises the efforts of the English, History, and Government Department and the Foreign Languages Department. We, of the Class of ' 63, are grate- ful to these men who have worked hard so that we may be pre- pared for the challenges of tomorrow. 33 ENGLISH. HISTORY AND GOVERNMENT Capt. C. J. Merdinger, Sr. Prof. W. W. Jeffries, Cdr. W. C. Chapman Critics of the pasf, moulders of the future 34 The Humanities and Social Sciences, less languages, come under the direction of the Department of English, History, and Government. In keeping with the academy ' s tradition of producing well-rounded junior officers, under the tutelage of the " Bull " Department we studied Composi- tion and Literature for two semesters as plebes. Third Class year we changed the pace with the study of Modern Euro- pean History and U.S. Foreign Policy and Geography. The essential material for every citizen was covered in our Second Class year in the course United States Govern- ment along with Economics and Speech, another necessary course. First Class year we rounded out our studies in this department with Naval History and a return to literature with Advanced Composition and Literature. Those who were motivated in the Humanities and Social Sciences found a myriad of opportunities in the elective program offered by this department. They prepared us well for the return to life " outside the wall.

Russian-German-ltalian-French-Spanish ' Portuguese 39 To provide each midshipman with a work- ing knowledge of one foreign language, the For- eign Language Department offers two years of instruction in one of the following six foreign languages: French, German, Italian, Portugese, Russian and Spanish. The facilities of this depart- ment are outstanding, including sound labora- tories in both the Foreign Language Building and in special rooms inside Bancroft. In order tc further amplify the two year required course of study, interesting elective courses and many for- eign movies provide valuable experience for the midshipmen.

The Math Department has provided us with those courses which have enabled us to successfully complete the requirements in engineering and science, while providing us with such a background that post-graduate training, where available, will be within our scope. During our years here at USNA, we have studied College Mathematics and Calculus, which included the study of plane trigonometry, higher algebra, analytical geometry and, of course, plen- ty of calculus. Our formal instruction in mathematics terminated second class year, after studying Differential Equations and Spherical Trigonometry, but may be con- tinued by the taking of more advanced courses through the elective program.

Throughout our four years, we have diligently made the long trudge to the " Halls of Pipes and Shafts " to study and peruse the courses of Engineering Drav ing, Descriptive Geometry, and Statics, Strength of Materials, Metallurgy, Thermody- namics I, Fluid Mechanics I, Applied Thermodynamics and Applied Fluid Mechanics. This outlay of academic material, backed up by many laboratory sessions which included material, model, and wind tunnel testing, have provided us with the bases to understand engineering problems and apply ourselves in future training.

The first two years saw us battling the basic courses of all engineering students— two semesters of Chem- istry followed by two semesters of physics. Second Class year saw us delving into Electric Circuits and Electronics I followed up by Electronics II and Electric Motors and their applications.

Our appreciation of Fleet Weapons was enhanced by lucid presentations from the following courses: Weapons Components, Gunfire Control Systems, Underwater Acoustics, Missile Systems and Ballistic Missile Trajectories. Instruction on the newly-installed Digital and Analog computer units emphasized their importance to a Navy ever growing in Technological advancement. Laboratory sessions on the Depart- mental mock-ups and combat simulators increased our proficiency in the " nuts and bolts " phase of our professional training. 59 Weapons Practical Work 60 COMMAND DEPARTMENT Capt. A. H. Wellman Jr. Capt. G. R. Bryan, Jr. Doctors, Lawyers and ndian Chiefs 61 The Command Department, with head- quarters located in Luce Hall, has, during four years of our midshipman career, instructed us in those principles and bases that will be of firsthand value to us when we enter the fleet. During our third and fourth class years, instruc- tion in basic seamanship and shiphandling was their main purpose. As we advanced to second and first class year, the formal courses of naviga- tion and piloting, naval operations, and opera- tions analysis were offered us in the basic cur- riculum. Besides handling an elective program, the Command Department coordinated all our summer training cruises and fully developed our seamanship with extensive instruction in tactics through the use of YP ' s and " Operation Sea- breeze.

The Physical Education Department, through the use of some of the best facilities in the country, has instructed and tested every mid- shipman in gymnastics, agility, boxing, wrestling, swimming and applied strength, as part of our training. In addition to these required activities, we have learned the funda- mentals of many " carry over " sports for the future years, such as tennis and squash. This department has always strived to fulfill the motto of keeping the midshipmen with " a sound mind in a sound body. " 70 71 OVERLOADS AND VALIDATION With each new plebe class, there are a significant number of midshipmen who have had previous college level experience and have successfully completed courses basically similar to those offered in the uniform curriculum. In order to take maximum advantage of prior instruction, those midshipmen who have the above qualifications are allowed to validate, that is, show satisfactory knowledge of the basic course and receive credit for it without actually having to take it. The Academic Board sets up these criteria; midshipmen who successfully fulfill the requirements are credited with the course and are now free to take advanced courses in the same field, or to bring his academic schedule up to the required level by substituting additional electives in the now vacant hours. Part of the new look at USNA is the opportunity for midshipmen to work for a major in a par- ticular field, such as Marine Engineering or History, by taking sufficient prescribed electives or " over- load " courses. All Academic Departments now offer additional courses in their own area of instruction for those midshipmen who have validated basic courses or who have maintained a specific academic average and wish to take courses in addition to those prescribed for all midshipmen for the purpose of either ob- taining more general knowledge or for work towards a major.

Electronic waves are not the easiest things to figure out. 77 After-class consultation is frequent. Advanced navigation vnill prove invaluable in the years to come. Model design and testing unfold new problems. 78 Overloaders find it necessary to burn the midnight oil. 79 Religious Education Religion at the Naval Academy, as at any institution, becomes an integral part of our daily life. All midshipmen are required to attend the church or synagogue of their choice each week; provisions are made for those men who wish to attend religious services in the town of Annapolis if they so desire. Here at the Academy there are many opportunities for midshipmen to enrich their daily lives by extra-curricular activities attached to the chapel. The Chapel, Antiphonal, and Catholic choirs provide beautiful and inspiring music each week for the Protestant and Catholic Services held every Sunday morning. Each afternoon there are services conducted solely by midshipmen in the smaller St. Andrew ' s Chapel directly below the Main Chapel. Any midshipman who so desires may participate in the services as either speaker, song leader, or congregation member. The various associations at the Academy give the men an opportunity to learn more about today ' s Christian goodwill at work around the world and in the service. Among these groups are the Officer ' s Christian Union, Newman Club, and the Naval Academy Christian Association which meet periodically each month to discuss topics of world interest and to hear lectures from distinguished speakers. Communion services are offered for mid- shipmen of all faiths in the early hours of the morning, every morning of the week. A man at the Naval Academy may engage in these activities to the fullest of his desire. Those men who have a desire to instruct as Sunday School teachers find plenty of opportun- ity in that our Chaplains employ those interested in teaching for the instruction of children of officers and instructors here at the Academy. We all look to our Chaplains as sources of inspiration and comfort in our hours of need. They provide an unceasing source of strength and help as we confront those problems that only he can help us with. Through their efforts, our lives are far more complete. Our years at the United States Naval Academy will always be remembered with a warmth and reverence. 80 S sC;: ' •Mr. •A Hi tajr- 7. r ■ ■ r- ' -i; - ' i Eg i 1 " 1 1 . i ' ..;: ' !.;-- ' ,_ HJ SB i Ba iaBMi • " ' Antipbonal Choir.

No matter whai the tastes of the individual Midshipman, he can find a club or activity in which he can expand his knowledge or skill and share it with others as well as enjoy himself at the same time. Activities range from religious organizations to literary groups which, incidentally, pro- duce three magazines, a handbook for newly inducted Plebes, a calendar-date book, and a much cherished Lucky Bag. There are many educational and hobby clubs from which he can choose. Some increase professional knowledge and competence, the Sail- ing and Y.P. Squadrons; while others broaden academic hori- zons, the Foreign Relations and Language clubs. Musical talents aren ' t to be neglected and find an active outlet in the many mu- sical activities at the Academy. Some organizations exist solely for the service of the Brigade and the class such as the Ring and ' Crest Committee and the Hop Committee. We are especially grateful to them. Now let ' s take a closer look at the scope of these activities, who comprised them, and what they set out to accomplish in the best Navy tradition. CLASS OFFICERS FIRST CLASS OFFICERS Sec. John Newton, Pres. Vern Von Sydow, V. Pres. Al Griggs, Treas, Dan Hennessy The task of conducting the busi- ness of the class as a whole fell to the duly elected officers of each class. Vern Von Sydow capably served as our Pres- ident for three years and worked unfail- ingly to improve our class reputation and integrity. With the support of the rest of the class he succeeded beyond expec- tation. The class officers coordinated the functions of the class and reported to the class as a whole on current business and social activities affecting us all. For their long hours in our behalf we are most grateful. SECOND CLASS OFFICERS V. Pres. Joe Ince, Treas. Ken Fusch, Pres. Bob Sutton, Sec. Neil Baumruk 89 THIRD CLASS OFFICERS V. Pres. Ernie Amborf, Pres. Pat Donnelly, Treas. Hugh Thompson, Sec. Skip Orr. RING AND CREST COMMITTEE One of the first class organizations formed was our Ring and Crest Commit- tee. Early in the Fall of our Plebe year our class crest design was adopted by the class and became the forged link bond- ing each of us with each other and our class with those classes that have gone before and those that will follow. The Committee carefully selected a company to make our crests which we received just before our Plebe June Week. They then supervised the construction and delivery of our cherished rings at the Ring Dance. The Committee served us well and their effort will serve us in the future as a source of pride and esteem in ourselves, our class, and our chosen careers. First Row: Brown, Johnson, Stone, Metcalf, Stephen, Miles, Adriosola, Rabin. Second Row: Breede, Jordan, McDermott, Clancy, Eckland, Small. Third Row; Praeger, Martinsen, Fiori, Blackledge, Whalen, Jacobs. 90 THE HONOR COMMITTEE The First Class Honor Com- mittee heard honor cases re- ferred to it by all other class committees and had the heavy responsibility of deciding such cases. They also did much to im- prove the honor system and brought a much clearer under- standing of it to Plebes and Up- per class alike by thorough in- doctrination in the principles of honor at all levels. Theirs was the task of insuring the validity of the phrase " an officer and a gentleman " and they performed their task faithfully and v ell. Marsh, Strasser, Newton, Guffey, Pres. Von Sydow, Kaman, Griggs, Tomlin, Rabin. IMPROVEMENT COMMITTEE The ' 63 class improvement com- mittee was formed during our Second Class year to mediate and refine sources of friction between the Executive Depart- ment and our class. A new channel was formed that, with the striper organization, could represent the class and under class as well in conferences with the Executive Department. The Committee undertook projects to revise obsolete regulations and to redefine class rates and privileges. Each class in turn has formed its own duly elected committee and plans to follow the lead of the ' 63 Improvement Com- mittee. Standing: Field, Baumgart, Pratt, Umphrey, Love, Nerangis, Rossa, Lutz, Spruance, Salmon, Yeager. Seated: Barlow, Chairman Gottlieb, Duncan. 91 " Will there be anything else, sir? " MASQUERADERS Each winter the Naval Academy thespians head for Mahan Hall and the footlights. This year ' s production of Nikolai Gogol ' s The Inspector General was an immediate favorite thanks to the ef- forts of Carl Hansen, the director, E. C. Holloway, the stage man- ager, and Lt. Mike Jasperson, not to mention the cast and prop, stage, juice, and make-up gangs. The efforts of the Masqueraders made life during the " Dark Ages " that much more bearable and we are indebted to them for a job well done. " He was all right a minute ago. ' 92 A few A.P.C. ' s and he ' ll be all right! •,., . i The cast takes a curtain call. " Backstage . . . what chorus line? " 93 CONCERT BAND The concert band formed most of the musical talent in the Brigade into a fine or- chestra that gave regular concerts during the year as well as playing during pep rallies and smokers. Who will ever forget the long lines of dancing Plebes doing the " Can Can " to the ac- companiment of the Concert Band during eve- ning meal. From " Victory at Sea " to Dixieland, the Midshipman Concert Band was tops. SPIFFYS The Spiffys, a favorite since their inception in 1959, once again were in great demand at informal hops, smokers, costume hops, and Bri- gade hops. The original group has dis- appeared but the Spiffys are perpetu- ated each year by fresh talent that seems to be limitless and promises the Brigade a treat for years to come. 94 NA-IO The NA-10 provided the dance music for a large num- ber of the informal hops held at the Naval Academy. They were masters at sv ing, polkas, tangos, sambas, cha cha cha ' s and the fox trot. The band split itself into combos and played at smokers as well as hops. THE ANCHORMEN The Anchormen are a choral group of banjo pickers and guitar strum- mers who specialize in folk songs and ballads. They were an immediate success after their first performance and have been in popular demand ever since at hops, smokers, and informal get-togeth- ers. Often the spectators joined in the singing, but were more apt to enjoy the music of the group by listening. Kneeling: Benson, Lautenbacher. Standing: Amy, Lawrence. 95 MUSICAL CLUBS SHOW Hardly had Mahan Hall auditorium stopped echoing from the Masqueraders when the Musical Clubs Show moved in and began rehearsing. The show is characterized by the fact that all the music, sets, performers, stage hands, and electricians are provided by the midshipmen. The best musical talent in the Brigade is represented and this year ' s show. Stage Door, was one of the best. Tom Selden com- bined a variety of acts to suit everyone ' s musical tastes as well as tickle their " funny-bones. " Buck and Wing If Mammy could only see me now! Serenade in Blue " The way I see H . . . 96 PROPERTY GANG The Property Gang moved and stored the various props used in the productions of the Mu- sical Clubs Show and the Masqueraders. A nnember of the Gang had to be familiar with the play in order to move the scenery and might even be called upon to prompt a player. Although never seen, the members of the Property Gang and their work were appreciated by all the Academy theatre goers. Bunche, Latta, Gang Boss Redford, Anderson, Keffer. s m m ! " - MAKE UP GANG From beards to lipstick the Makeup Gang was expert at the art of disguise. Kelsey, White, Jontry, Coulsen, Clark, Stephan. JUICE GANG The blinking football signs posted over Ban- croft Hall as well as those over Mahan Hall before each performance of the Masqueraders or Musical Clubs Show, were the handiwork of the Juice Gang. This small group also handled all the lighting chores in Mahan Hall. Though never in the Limelight, this group made it. BRIGADE ACTIVITIES COMMITTEE The Brigade Activities Com- mittee has never been as active as they have this year. Tecumseh re- ceived his coat of v ar paint at the duly appointed times and the yard was festooned with signs and ban- ners before each football game. Kaydets were surprised to find a full page " Go Navy, Beat Army " ad in the New York Times in addition to the floats and activities on the field just before the game. Much of the success of the Committee is due to the efforts of W. D. Davidson and his large staff of helpers and well wishers. Dean, Morse, Breede, Pres. Davidson CHEERLEADERS Early in the Fall a small group can be seen on Thompson field jumping, yelling, turning cart- wheels and working up new cheers. These are the cheerleaders that can be found high in the stands directing a Brigade march- on, on the sidelines at football, soccer and lacrosse games or in the fieldhouse leading cheering at the basketball games. To this group we owe thanks for many new cheers and for concentrating and honing Brigade spirit to a keen edge at Pep rallies, smokers and team send offs as well as at the scene of the action. L to r: Tuma, Czerwonky, head cheerleader Giddens, McLoy, Hutcheson. Not pictured: Karalekas, Refo, Benson, Baer. 98 Prepping for Army •N " -CLUB The " N " Club is made up of all those who have earned their monogram in varsity athletics here at the Naval Academy. The or- ganization is purely a social one sponsoring several dinners and dances throughout the year in Hubbard Hall. The Club also presents an opportunity for athletes to meet off the field and re-live past games, not to mention speculate about those to come. Gill, Baumgart, Pres. Terwilliger, Graham. Seated: Tanis, Fishburn, Banda. Standing: Opitz, Smelley, Morgan. RECEPTION COMMITTEE The Reception Committee has its v ork cut out in providing visiting athletic teams and groups with all the comforts the Naval Academy has to extend. They pro- vide guided tours of the Yard, meals in the messhall, transportation arrangements, and lodging in the Field House. They also are the friendly hosts that represent the entire Brigade in welcoming our visitors. 99 THE LUCKY BAG Jon Scott, Editor in Chief f - 1 11 1. .k -v The Class Lucky Bag got under way early Youngster year with the election of Jon Scott as Editor-in-Chief and Ted DelGaizo as Business Manager. Joe Waterfill rounded out this nucleus as layout editor and the ball started rolling, with the addition of Harlan Ullman as Assistant Editor. Paul Jara carefully collected and edited the biograph- ies of the class while Ron Baxter undertook the task of the underclass section. T erry Abell collected pictures of our four years tenure as midshipmen, and Spence Johnson handled the Activities section. Johnny Parks managed his staff of photographers, including Mike Stegenga and Charlie Plumb, who photographed all phases of Academy life from the sports scene to the extracurricular activities. Chuck Donovan with Ted Bowman and Jim Metcalf cared for the literary portion of the book. Art work was provided by Mai Shantz along with his crew of ' Phil Marsden, Bo Newell, Charlie Minter, Walt Breede and Rags Ragano, who designed the cover. The Academic scene was covered by Tony Ditto while Arne Johnson with the help of Wiley Grantham, Skip Price, and t First Row: Terry Abell; Capt. Paul D.

Don Lachata proved in- valuable as assistant Business Manager and Mike Lents performed the final function of circulating the finished product. A special note of thanks goes to our officer representative Capt. Paul D. Slack who carefully followed the production of the ' 63 Lucky Bag from its inception and proved of invaluable assistance when things bogged dow n.

The Log has provided midshipmen with fifty years of jokes, stories, anecdotes of Academy life and sports features. Editor A. B. " Sandy " Daunis continued spe- cial features such as the " Femmes Issue, " the " Drag of the Week, " and Salty Sam ' s tireless spying on the activities of the Executive Department. The Log reg- ularly found its way out to the fleet where we can expect to see at least another fifty years of fine ser- vice. Standing: Reinhardt, Dovine, Sheehan, Howard, Bartlet, Martinsen, Deutermann, Monsco, Dukes, Campbell, Peterson. Seated: Editor Daunis, Lcdr. Finlay, Business Man ager Bohley. • ««!• SPLINTER The Splinfer always provided the inside picture on intramural and Varsity sports and social events taking place in the Yard. Cartoons and jokes rounded out each issue and made the bi-weekly edition of the paper much looked for- ward to by all members of the Brigade. The sports forecasts almost always were proven correct on Saturday afternoon, and intramural competition was that much keener when the results of other teams were carefully tabulated. L to r. Seated: Baxter, Lcdr. Middleton, D. Pemberfon, Bowden. W. Mathis, Editor, McCann. Standing: Parks, Siebe, Pease, Tobin, L to r: Klocek, Curtis, Bechtol, Ballard. ART AND PRINTING The Art and Printing Club furnished all the signs seen posted on trees in the Yard during certain seasons of the year. They were al- ways out during homecoming, all football games, army weekends, and June Week. Most of the Bri- gade tried to collect them all, but only the Club has a complete set. 105 NAVAL ACADEMY CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION The Naval Academy Christian Association provided Protestant Midshipnnen v ith the oppor- tunity to better understand and participate in their faith. Many guest speakers rounded out the Sun- day evening programs and 1730 Sunday services w ere regularly held in St. Andrews chapel which were conducted entirely by midshipmen. The " Guidon, " the voice of the group, regularly found its way into the Brigade ' s reading habits and pro- vided the Chaplains with a helping hand. Roundy, Chaplain Greenwood, Hidy, Harris, Chaplain Kelley, McAllister, Chaplain Weubens, Marsh. Informal Service Spadafora, Chaplain Cahill, McDermott, Hennesy, Chaplain Ryan, Bustamante. NEWMAN CLUB The Newman Club pro- vided Roman Catholic members of the Brigade with an opportu- nity to develop their religious and social character. Bi-weekly meet- ings with interesting guest speak- ers, a large religious library, and various films added to each mem- ber ' s knowledge of his faith. The club provided altar attendants who daily helped the Chaplains serve Mass. An annual retreat during term leave was sponsored by the club and drew quite a few members. The Newman Club served as an auxiliary and aid to the Catholic chaplains and was loudly applauded by the Brigade for its efforts. GLEE CLUB The Glee Club probably repre- sented the Naval Academy more than any other musical group. With their renditions of sea-chanties, love songs, hymns and ballads, they were well re- ceived wherever they went. They ap- peared on television, at schools and in- stitutions throughout the East and best of all right here in the Yard. CATHOLIC CHOIR The Catholic Choir has long been a source of pride to those who attend Catholic services. They can select from a large variety of hymns and anthems to beautify and sanctify Sunday services. The singing of the High Mass is a specialty that will not soon be forgotten by those that have heard it. The long hours of practice by each of its 120 members has certainly borne beautiful and inspiring fruit. t t ♦ «t :t i ' ■■: « ; ;- ; - ■■■■■ mi iilllp L iiiiiiiiiiiniimiiip in A. " . ' . -- ' Hnu H ' T. % CHAPEL CHOIR The Chapel Choir led the Midshipmen in nnusical re- ligious activities each Sunday morning and was acclaimed by visitors from far and near. The annual presentation of Han- del ' s hAessiah during the Christmas season, with the cooper- ation of the Hood College Choir, was again a stirring and beautiful performance. Professor Donald C. Gilley and choir president Steve Stewart provided the necessary leadership and music instruction to enable the choir to perform so well. ANTIPHONAL CHOIR The Antiphonal Choir presented chapel goers with a unique experience each Sunday. Few churches anywhere can boast of responsive choirs singing portions of anthems to the congregation. The choir is well noted for its fine anthems and hymns and especially for its rendition of the " Navy Hymn. " Trips to Washington and elsewhere are proper evi- dence that the Antiphonal Choir is held in high esteem not just here in Annapolis. ?-. IP% Zrident The most popular of the Trident Society ' s publications is the Trident Calendar. This book is the place for recording marks, the next watch, P-works, and not infrequent quizzes. The Cal- endar was an immediate favor- ite of families and friends of the Brigade who, by way of the cartoons and pictures, gained a clear window through which to view the Brigade. A timely and appropriate Christmas pres- ent, the Trident Calendar is an- nually mailed to all parts of the world and into the fleet. Sfand ng: Moore, Pinney, Keeney, Editor de Holl, Burns, M inter. Seated: Barney, Balibaclt, Davey, Anderson, Oppen- heimer. Standing: Williams, Clark, Witter. Seated: Bitro, Editor Hellawell, Abbey. TRIDENT CALENDAR The Trident is the profes- sional magazine of the Brigade of Midshipmen and as such provides its readers with interesting ar- ticles on current and future trends in the Navy and other, ser- vices, as well as highlighting in- teresting episodes from military and naval history that often find application today. The annual lit- erary, professional and photo- graphic contests that the Trident co-sponsors with the Trident So- ciety bring forth latent talent and ability from within the Brigade. The Trident ' s vast mailing list speaks well for its merit and pop- ularity throughout the service. 109 Zrident Society The Trident Society is the spon- sor and financial manager of most of the literary organizations here at the Naval Academy including the Trident, the Log, the Christmas Card Committee, the Trident calendar, Reef Points and the Photo Club. The annual art and writ- ing contests sponsored by the Trident and Trident Society see keen competition among them for the prizes offered. The parent Trident Society must be com- mended for its fine support and co- ordination of its well known subsidiary activities. Keef Points Few authors have ever written with such assurance of immediate suc- cess and popularity as have the editors of Reef Points. The annual handbo ok of information and necessary knowledge is carefully prepared by the Second Class each year and printed in time for issue to the new Plebes in late June. " Table Salt, " " Laws of the Navy, " and " Irish Pennants " are thoroughly mem- orized and a good working knowledge of all other parts is a task of every Plebe. Much of the success of the Plebe Indoctrination phase of Academy life is due to the work of the Reef Points Com- mittee and their publication. Pres. Weidt, Abbey, Tobin, Redford Glaes, Sweeney, Spencer, Railsbach, Weidt 110 m fl CHRISTMAS CARD COMMITTEE Late in the Spring of each year the Christmas Card Committee emerges from its huddle with a new and distinctive Christmas card design for the Brigade. Com- bining the best of nautical tradition and Christmas spirit, the card is truly a work of art that is sent with pride to friends and relatives of the Brigade. Left to right: Davis, Redd, Kahrs, Swinger. RADIO CLUB The Radio Club, W3ADO, was the focal center for all ham radio operators in the Brigade. From their radio shack high over the Rotunda, they listened and talked to other ham operators from all over the world. The Club helped man the emergency radio network hams maintain for use in emergencies. Even better was the frequent call home via ham radio. Ill WRNV Firmly entrenched in their new, modern station in the 8th wing, the " Voice of the Bri- gade " provided the widest variety of program- ming any radio station could hope to have. Ev- ery type of music from Rock and Roll to Classi- cal could be found and the news, weather, men- us, " Youngster Free Physics, " and foreign lan- guage broadcasts proved to be extra added favorites of the Brigade. The concert committee brought live talent to the Annapolis scene and livened many a dreary weekend. PUBLIC RELATIONS COMMITTEE In the press box at every Na- vy sporting event will be found a member of the Public Relations Com- mittee. These men actively represent the Naval Academy as spotters and often filled in newscasters and sports- writers as to the skills and accom- plishments of both Navy teams and individual players. They keep the sports readers up to date on happen- ings in the Navy sports world and keep the public eye centered upon the teams that can guarantee victory. HOP COMMITTEE The Brigade Hop Committee, under the able chairmanship of Ned Walsh, planned the numerous and enjoyable hops we all anticipated and attended. Theirs was the job of pro- viding for the orchestra, decorations, escorting the receiving lady and host- esses, providing refreshments and programs. No one who attended the costume hops, Christmas hop, Val- entine ' s Day hop, Easter hop, or June Week hops can forget the outstanding job done by the Hop Committee.

RING DANCE COMMITTEE For three years we await- ed the first night of Second Class June Week which marked the most memorable night of our four years by the Severn. The Ring Dance, held in the open Spring night air under the colorful Japan- ese lanterns, was the climax of months of arduous planning by Ned Walsh and the Ring Dance Committee. The success of the Dance and the moment was mir- rored on the face of each member of the class and his drag as to- gether they christened and dedicat- ed his ring in the water of the seven seas. We had reached a long-awaited milestone as individ- uals and as a class. 113 FOREIGN RELATIONS CLUB The weekly debate on mat- ters of diplomacy, economics, com- merce, and alliances seems to never end for the members of the Foreign Relations Club. Guest speakers, both nationally and internationally well known, provide the club with food for thought and discussion. A ban- quet is held once a month in the after-dinner speaking rooms and the culmination of the year ' s activity is the Naval Academy Foreign Af- fairs Conference drawing delegates from over 50 colleges and universi- ties and speakers from the Senate and State Department in Washing- ton as well as ambassadors. Brown, Shapack, Bond, Sheehan, Corgan, Lett, Holmes, O ' Hanlon. NAFAC Each year for the past three years the Naval Academy has spon- sored a collegiate conference on a different area of the world. This year ' s conference fcxrused attention on the Far East and drew student delegates from over 50 colleges and universities throughout the country. They participated in a roundtable on each country or sub area, explored military, economic, health, and social problems of the people of the Far East and reported their findings to the entire body. Ambassadors and guest speakers with an intimate knowledge of these areas answered questions and opened further ave- nues for study. A final set of resolu- tions was drawn up and adopted by the group for further study in the future. Lyons, Dalton, Johnson, Burns, Brady, Carmichael, Hawkins, Howard, Murphy, Barney, Anderson, Graham. 114 Key Note Speakers Round Table Discussions Final Banquet IIS FORENSIC ACTIVITY Bill Earner ' s Forensic Activity traveled far and wide to participate in intercollegiate debate tournaments and come home with top honors. Long hours were spent in preparing air tight cases either for or against any ques- tion that might arise. Extemporaneous speaking and short speeches also were well handled by the group of whom even Demos- thenes would have been proud. L (o f: Deutermann, Williams, Lovig, Morton, Earner, Werner, Milasich, Friedman, Linzo. L to r; Dukes, McDermott, Chairman Schwing, Adams. PHOTO CLUB The Photo Club exists to provide camera enthusiasts with proper facilities for pursuing their hobby at the lowest possible cost and with the utmost in satisfaction. A well equipped dark room enables members to process, enlarge and print their own photographs, many of which find their way to the Log, Splinter or Lucky Bag. The club has encouraged many to learn more about the skill of photography while enjoying their own creativeness with a camera. AUTOMOBILE COMMITTEE The Spring finds every First Classman ' s fancy turn to thoughts of his new car. The Automobile Committee, under Mark Schwing, had been thinking about it a long time and had prices on all makes and models of new and used cars available at the lowest costs to help the budding young Ensign make up his mind as to what and where to buy. Hun- dreds of dealers submitted bids and only the lowest of these were presented to the class to choose from— saving many hard earned dollars in the undertaking. Pres.

They provided a relaxing social atmosphere as well as allowing the midshipmen to use their language skills in an atmosphere outside the classroom. Fre- quent meetings featured foreign movies, speakers, song tests, and banquets. The new language laboratory in the Seventh Wing basement featured banks of tape recorders that allowed midshipmen to improve and expand their language skills. Whether a quiet hour was spent with a language tape, a foreign magazine, or a foreign movie; it was entertaining and educational too. Prof. Riccio, Lcdr. Boghassian, Braz. Navy, Pres.

The marches played during meal formations in Tecumseh Court added the right amount of martial spirit for both spectators and those of us v ho regularly partic- ipated. THE DRUM AND BUGLE CORPS 119 YP SQUADRON Almost any afternoon of the Fall and Spring will find the YP squadron sortieing out of the Sev- ern and onto the Bay. There profes- sional skills are learned as the nnid- shipmen learn the skills of the Sea- man from the engine room to the signal bridge to the Conn. Trips to Norfolk and Baltimore provide an opportunity to put these skills to use with the added attraction of lib- erty. Members of the YP Squadron will find ample reward for their ef- forts here in increased competence and ability as officers in the fleet. Fiori, Donegan, Smith, Hillgaertner, Lcdr.

The Naval Acad- emy Sailing Squadron boasts the largest fleet of sailing craft in the country and en- ters not only Bay racing se- ries but also the bi-annual Annapolis to Newport race and the bi-annual Newport to Bermuda race. The Mid- shipman skippers and crews take great pride in their sea- manship and racing skills.

Majestic build- ings with historic names, impressive monuments, and beautiful landscapes— all of these surrounded us during our tenure as mid- shipmen. The old edifices seemed to boast to us of past glories and tradition, and yet offered a promise of triumphs yet to come. It was not without a pang of nostalgia that we gazed upon them after graduation, knowing that they would no longer be familiar sights to us. Yet each of us would carry with him his own special pic- ture—his own favorite vista— which he would treasure always. Tecumseh 121 Bancroft Hall " The Hall " — our domicile during our stay at the Naval Academy. Its portals were the first to greet us when we arrived, and as we entered into the rotunda for the first time, we were im- pressed, as countless visitors had been before us, with the majestic architecture and ornate style of our new home. We saw many new changes wrought in her during our four years. She was redesigned and refurnished throughout, and two brand new wings were added. But nothing will ever really change Bancroft Hall. The associations and friendships which were formed within her walls lend to her a nature which is timeless, and make her something more than just gray stone. She has become a part of a brotherhood, and is spoken of kindly by all those intrepid men, past and present, who were priviliged to call her " home.

Keep me true to my best self, guarding me against dishonesty in pur- pose and in deed, and helping me so to live that I cSn stand unashamed and un- afraid before my shipmates, my loved ones, and Thee. Protect those -in whose love I live. Give me the will to do the work of a man and to accept my share of re- sponsibilities with a strong heart and a cheerful mind. — — Make me considerate of those intrusted to my leadership, and faithful to the duties my country has intrusted to me. Let my uniform re- mind me daily of the traditions of the Service of which I am a part. If I am inclined to doubt, steady my faith; if I am tempted, make me strong to resist; if I should miss the mark, give me the courage to try again. — Guide me with the light of truth and keep me before the life of Him by whose example and help I trust to obtain the answer to my prayer, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. The Prayer of a Midshipman 125 The Academic Group " It is by no means enough that an officer of the Navy be a capable mariner. He must be that, of course, but also a great deal more . . . " John Paul Jones How soon we found out these words to be true! Within these familiar buildings— Samp- son, Mahan, Maury, Isherwood, Melville and the others, we gradually became educated in the many, many fields in which we would soon find ourselves employed. 126 127 Superintendent ' s Quarters 128 MacDonough Hall Aptly named after doughty Commodore Thomas Macdonough, victor of Lake Champlain, this familiar building was the home base of Navy ' s modern day fight- ers—and winners. Within its walls, the wrestling, fencing, and gymnas- tics teams practiced daily, as well as the Brigade Boxers, and the un- sinkable swimming team. The spirit of the athletes which daily enter- ed its portals was vividly portrayed by the statue of Bill the Goat, who agressively stood his watch in the front of the entrance, serving as a warning to all those who would try to usurp the Naval Academy ' s re- doubtable athletic prominence; 129 Monuments Throughout the yard, as re- minders to those who aspire to follow the calling of the sea, stood the mon- uments of marble, steel and oak. They stood as mute testimony to those who went gallantly before us, and signified the high traditions of our Service. The names rang out loud and clear in our consciousness— Jones, Herndon, De- Long, Perry, Decatur— and each of us secretly expressed the desire to some day, add our name to the honored muster. 130 Memorial Stadium (■I iiIh 11 132 The Field House 134 ™A_ lf-T = ir ef " i -a S ' i wmJ r wn u L- i -. 1135 a tour of the Yard could hardly be complete without . . . and 136 Four Years TERRY A.

PLEBE SUMMER On this day some 1 250 of us from throughout the nation, its possessions and territories, and from other countries were assembled to- gether for the first time to begin the long four year trek to graduation and subsequent commissioning as officers in the Armed Services. On this first day we began our transformation from a group of individuals, each with his own basicly different ideas and beliefs, into the homo- geneous group, the Class of 1963. It was a long day but only one of many to come before the summer ended and we had been groomed to face the upper classes and prove ourselves worthy of the title. Midshipman Fourth Class. Throughout the summer the days were filled with activity; march- ing, sailing, knot tying, YP ' s, whaleboats, engineering, lectures, boxing smokers, intramurals, PT classes, and song fests. Despite the pressure of all these activities it was necessary to continually improve our personal ap- pearance and broaden our knowledge of the Navy and current events. Still, everyone found time to write and receive letters and consume the contents of the frequent packages from home. 7 JULY 1959 I r Civilians no more. —Around to (he left, " Mister. " " Redeye?

Before our stay at the Naval Academy ended we were to see many changes take place, both in the Academy and in the world around us. We were to see, in the light of the Space Age, the emphasis upon academics increase in the form of the validation program. During our Four Years the interior of Ban- croft Hall was transformed from a rather dreary, well worn, state into a bright, modern, and comfortable place in which to live and work. In the world about us science was taking the first ad- venturous steps toward conquering space while in the political world events of importance occurred. All of this made each of us wonder where our future would lead. Getting a little sdlty. Parents Weekend 141 PLEBE YEAR With the return of the upper classes it seemed that we had begun all over again. Besides the professional questions, come arounds, and extra attention to personal appearance, there were the daily demands of academics. It wasn ' t all work how- ever, and the football weekends and carry on were a welcome change to the day to day routine. Before long it was time to put up Army Game decorations and prepare for the trip to Philadelphia to Beat the Cadets. Returning from Philadelphia on the top end of a 43-1 2 score for three weeks of " carry-on " fol- lowed by Christmas leave was surely one of the most memorable events of the year. The prospect to returning from leave to " finning out " and semester exams was not a pleasant one but the exams were soon out of the way. After a weekend of leave and a fresh start in academics. Hundredth Night and a chance to retaliate was not far away. Between Hundredth Night and Spring Leave the drab routine of the Dark Ages was at times trying.

By the end of cruise, the Canadian ports on the Saint Lawrence River, the island of Bermuda, and almost every port on the east coast had received visits from at least one of our ships. Inevitably we were the first ones ashore at liberty call and few of us were seen back aboard more than minutes before liberty expired. The end of July saw all of us back aboard the amphibious ships enroute from Norfolk to Annapolis and our first leave in seven months. Catching a few rays. Af day ' s end. After working hours.

In the Training Command we were introduced to the T-34, T-28, and the other basic train- ing aircraft. We received previews of things to come in aviation in lectures by industrial representatives and experienced our first O. and R. tour and Sono- buoy lecture. Rides in the Gilbert Dunker and ejection seat trainer and drills in the use of survival and safe- ty equipment were both Informative and enjoyable experiences. Sunshine, burgers, and beer— mostly beer. 4 Off on another tour. Self-portrait of a jet pilot. After our stay at Pensacola it was on to Jackson- ville with various side trips to observe Naval Aviation at work. This included a trip to Cape Canaveral for a look at the missile complex and to Key West for a day aboard a submarine. The final week of the summer ' s training is remem- bered most for the agony of fighting fires, saving the Buttercup, and eating prison chow at Philadelphia. 162 Off to a ride in the P5M.

We also began our professional education with leadership, weapons, and navigation, which, along with the other courses made for many hours of studying. Along with the increased study load and responsibilities came more liberty privileges and our first chance to take week - ends.

It was a pleasant weekend and we found the Military Academy to be a beautiful and scenic place. The routine there proved to be much like our own with some advantages and some disadvan- tages compared to ours. It was certain that we all appreciated the reveille bells of Bancroft Hall after a couple February reveille for- mations at West Point. Cadets on parade. The Navy and Air Force on foreign soil.

Even if it w as only your first date with a girl your roommate had fixed you up with, you really looked forward to getting out of the Yard and enjoying female com- panionship. Although there were the long estab- lished rituals of dragging, such as the drag house, there was always something in the way of Holiday Hops, sporting events, or popular music concerts to make each week- end a little different and more special than another.

Almost time for Sunday evening meal and time to part. 176 RING DANCE 177 After Spring Leave we began looking forward to receiving our class rings in April and then ahead to June Week when, besides the usual good times, we were to have our Ring Dance. We were all anticipating having the Dance afloat as the two classes before us had so suc- cessfully done since the size of the classes had outgrown the traditional Memorial Hall site of the Dance. However, this became impossible when the company that had prev- iously rented the excursion boat for the Dance went bank- rupt and no craft was available to us. The Ring Dance Committee was not with- out an excellent alternate plan and came up with the idea to use the area around the new reflect- ion pool in front of the library which would leave us enough money to hire a top grade band to provide dance music. This plan was accepted en- thusiastically and the Committee commenced working out the detailed plans and arrangements. 178 179 182 On Saturday of June Week we awoke to find that the weatherman had come up with a perfect day. By mid-afternoon the port- able dance floor, decorations, and colored flood lights for the pool fountains were in place and many of us were having our pic- tures taken in the replicas of our rings with our dates. 183 At 1900 our distinguished guests arrived and we sat down to enjoy a delicious roast beef dinner in the tastefully decorated mess hall. The Ring Dance Committee had provided soft violin dinner music and orchids and miniature ring charms for each girl. About an hour later we were all at pool side where the Japanese lanterns decorating the fringes of the dance floor were lighted, the colored flood lights were playing on the pool fountains, and the music of Cy Zettner ' s band floated from the seaward end of the pool. Then began the rather long wait in line for the Ring Ceremony. The wonderful feeling of wearing the Ring was worth the wait and some couples left the large ring each wearing a ring they will cherish the rest of their lives. After the Ceremony there was plenty of time to dance and relax by the pool. At the end of this memorable evening we were all off to our June Week cottages for a short party before saying goodnight to our dates and rushing back to the Hall before liberty expired. 185 CLASS CRUISE. This summer, cruise was to take on a com- pletely different aspect from our previous sessions of summer training. We were assigned to ships in smaller numbers and were given responsibilities comparable to those of the junior officers we were soon to become. Bridge and engineering watches gave us the opportunity to gain valuable experience in running a ship and assignments as assistant di- vision officers presented a taste of handling men, jobs we would soon be responsible for ourselves. " Which two have the duty? " Coming alongside for mail. Late evening launch. 186 Deciding what to attempt to accomplish for the day. 187 Cruise was not entirely watch standing and carrying out our divisional duties, however, and most of us were able to experience the delights of liberty in foreign ports. Our cruise ships put in at many of the Mediterranean ports df Europe as well as ports in Northern Europe and even some in the islands of the Caribbean Sea. Here we enjoyed get- ting to know our foreign friends, using our foreign language training, and seeing the famous land- marks of their various cultures. Duty on the signal bridge.

In every instance we were treated royally on these cruises and had the rare opportunity to understand these foreign friends, learn about their navies, and help them to under- stand us and our navy. Cruise did not cover the whole summer and there was still plenty of time for leave. Many took advantage of the fact that they were already in Europe or were go- ing there to meet their ship and spent leave time travel- ing about and seeing some of the inland portions of the Old Continent. A few took leave time and money to fur- ther their professional training by attending short courses at Airborne Training, UDT Training, and Survival Training schools. A cozy dinner spot.

Not only were there more opportunities to have fun, but academics proved to be more challeng- ing than ever before and many of us were to see our names on the unsat lists in short order. Before long the football season was in full swing, and we were somewhat dis- appointed by the early performances of our expected great team. However, towards Army Game time the team perked up behind our new youngster quarterback, Roger Stau- bach, and we faced the big game confident that this year would make Four-in-a-Row. After the most colorful pre-game week in our four years, we were off to Philly where on a beautiful December day we became members of the very elite group that never saw Navy lose to Army while at the Academy. but not for long.

It was a most fitting choice by the popular Color Company Com- mander. A charming, lovely blonde, with a delightful personality to match, Diane captivated all of us who had the pleasure of meeting her. Diane attended Mary Washington College and plans some additional work at George Washington Uni- versity this summer. She enjoys sewing and water sports, and, as is most evident, meeting and making new friends. On the day of the Color Parade, the rain and foreboding skies gave way to bright sunshine. Diane, a picturesque beauty in her long white dress and wide- brimmed hat, transferred the Colors and then received the salute of the Brigade passing in review. We know that Diane compiled a life-time of mem- ories during her reign as Color Girl. We would also like her to know that all of us were delighted by her and will remain ardent admirers even as she will always remember 1963 June Week. We were indeed honored to have her for our Color Girl. r VW»-.« »-T - ' t- ' » ' -f ' T-:- -- ' -- - " -. ' t-v -a,- 214 A fascinating evening June Week is not all P-rades. There are hops, entertainment in the yard and more hops. Also in addition this year there was rain, more rain, and rain again. Nevertheless, it was a memorable week and the Brigade was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to see the Blue Angels. The Glee Club put on a concert as did the U.S. Naval Academy Band. There were ships of the British and German Navies in the yard for all to visit. In short June Week was a constant decision as to what to see next or whether to stay at the " cottage.

A suppressed day— one filled with all the emotion four years can build, yet tempered by the impending loss of the close friendships that we have gained. It is a tem- porary loss, for we know we will meet again, someday. The day begins with our last reveille. We troop down to our last breakfast formation in any uniform one can think of at this unearthly hour. After chow there is time for an hour of final pad- time before the long march to the ceremony. It ' s not a long way physically, but there were a lot of us who lost their way in the four years it took us to walk this distance. After the introductory remarks by Rear Admiral Kirkpatrick, Vice-President Lyndon B. Joiinson spoke both congratulating us for reaching today and warning i s of the effort and sacrifice we must make to reach tomorrow. The Honorable Mr. Johnson personally gave the diplomas to the men who graduated with distinc- tion. Admiral Kirkpatrick passed out the rest of the diplomas by companies. 221 Now we had in our hands the material reward for our four years of academics. It was time for the real reward. After the men going into the Army and the Air Force had been sworn in those of us who " had seen the light " raised our hands to be accepted as Officers in eitTier the United States Marine Corps or the United States Navy. After each swearing in there was applause from the parents and friends but only appreciative silence from newly-baptized officers. The three cheers for those about to leave us and the three cheers for those we leave behind followed by the traditional and famous cap ceremony seemd almost an anticlimax to those of us graduating. Suddenly we realized what it all meant and we dis- persed happily to receive the accolades of our guests. As we all left on our separate ways we could only wonder as we saw those of us who were being married, wonder how a marriage could match the elation of Graduation. 222 223 ARMY NAVY SPRING SPORTS Five typically hard-fought contests highlighted the final Army-Navy Competi- tion of 1963. But this was not Navy ' s Day. The final tally showed Navy winning only in golf while the Black Knights swept baseball, lacrosse, tennis and track. The golf team ' s victory was all that prevented Army from making a clean sweep of this, our last competition throughout four years. The victory was partic- ularly satisfying in that it took place on Army ' s home course and brought the golf team ' s record to 11-3 for a highly successful season. Tom Haney, Tom Flory, Craig Burbik, Dave Conniff, and Jim Koehn won their matches to give Navy the victory by a 5-2 score. The last three events proved fatal for Navy ' s trackmen running on Army ' s cinders. Trailing Navy at that point. Army found a final burst of speed and spurted to an 82-67 victory. Mike Berkowitz, Jim Thorell, Dick Merritt, Dick Sidford, John Sai, and John Dohrman took firsts for Navy, but they were not quite enough as Army ' s depth carried the meet. Also at West Point, the Army baseball team scored a run in the tenth inning to beat Navy 6-5. The game was sharply played by both teams and exciting from the start. The loss ruined Navy ' s chances for the undisputed championship of the Eastern Intercollegiate League. Instead, Navy ended the season in a tie for the championship with Princeton. The Army lacrosse team proved to be the real shocker for Navy sport fans. Navy had one of its all-time great lacrosse teams and had already wrapped up the National Championship. But there was something lacking this day and Army appeared with fire in their eyes and upset on their minds. Led by a raging soph- omore, Tom Sheckells, the Cadets took a 6-5 lead into the locker room at half-time. Navy rooters, however, were not too concerned, expecting the fireworks to begin as soon as the second half began. Army was not to be denied, however. Behind Sheckells ' continued outstanding play in the second half. Army hustled on to an 1 1-9 victory. Joe Fossella and Brian Lantier each tallied two goals for the Blue and Gold, but Sheckells wound up the afternoon with five goals. For the National Champions this was a sub-par performance but the game just proved again that there never is a favorite in an Army-Navy contest. On Navy ' s varsity tennis courts. Army took the first four singles matches and subsequently handed Navy a 5-4 defeat. In the number three singles match, Norm Radkte sprained his ankle and had to default the third set after having split the first two. With the loss to Army, Navy finished the season with an 11-6 record. 224 Winning, happy, Captain Tom Haney and Coach Williams S Jim Thorell shows his record breaking form If we only had two more scoring base runners 225 Good Sportsmanship The only happiness was before the game Navy on the attack 226 Head Crew Coach Paul Quinn Head Coach Paul Quinn and Plebe Coach Dave Pratt were two proud and happy men at the con- clusion of the spring sports season. And they had every reason to be so. On June 15, ten days after graduation, the varsity, junior-varsity, and plebe crews were in Syra- cuse, New York, for the IRA championships— the races toward which all college shells point throughout the entire season. Under-dog Navy, disappointed in their long, grueling season, but deadly in their determina- tion, captured the coveted Ten-eyck Trophy, indicative of the over-all team championship. Wins by the plebe and junior varsity shells, and a tough-luck near miss by the varsity boat secured the prized victory for Navy. The plebe boat, with Strachan rowing bow, and followed in order by Quinn, Bellas, Doyle, Shannon, Vail, Alleman, and Swett at stroke, had proven themselves fast starters all spring. But at their position in the starting line, they had difficulty hearing the commands, got away a poor eighth and, as a result, had their hands full from the very start. At one point they were behind two full lengths, but answering the steady challenge of coxswain Omohundro, they gradually crept up on the hard-pulling Washington boat. Straining to break ahead both boats had difficulty in the bow, but both bowmen had recovered the pace as they surged down the final hundred yards. Slowly, the plebes inched ahead and claimed victory at the finish line by three-tenths of a second. The junior-varsity boat provided the most remarkable exhibition of the day. With Ted Triebel ' 64 rowing bow, followed by Broberg ' 65, Higgins ' 64, Garber ' 65, Graham ' 63, Borchers ' 65, Nichols ' 65, and Feeney ' 64, the shell grabbed the lead after the half mile point and went on to win by a full ten seconds o ver Washington. It was an easy job for coxswain Rich Williams ' 64 to coax his crew to victory. They cross- ed the finish line pulling a long but powerful twenty-eight strokes per minute— far under the usual neces- sary sprint rate. It was an easy job— yes, but an outstanding one to bring a boat home in such perfect form. Lady-luck was all that prevented the varsity boat from making it a clean sweep for Navy. Bill Quirk ' 64 was at bow in this boat with Jim Nowell ' 64, number 2, Jim Nunn ' 64, number 3, Joe Clare ' 65, number 4, Bill Boles ' 65, number 5, Tim Kelley ' 65, number 6, Lee Fernandez ' 64, number 7, and Rodger Asbury ' 65 at stroke. Rowing with excellent form and responding to (he urges of coxswain John Kendall ' 64 the Navy shell pulled out to a three-quarter length lead over the favored Cornell crew. With a half milie rema in- ing, however, Joe Clare pulled a shoulder muscle and Cornell inched ahead. But typical of the nfiaximUim effort extended by all of Navy ' s crewmen that day, Joe kept right on rowing and the Navy boat closed to within 2 seconds ' of still another victory. It was indeed a Navy day— that Saturday in Syracuse. To the Navy crews our congratulations and our respect for their spirit and determination. To the two happy coaches— Paul Quinn and Dave Pratt— our hats are off! 227 SPRING SET STRIPERS -: ' cy r ' L to r: Brigade Adjutant, R. C. Jones; Brigade Operations, P. V.

Their presence always made these times that much more enjoyable for us. Their letters, notes, and other remembrances, however, made day to day life more cheerful than it would have been otherwise. These Femmes— mothers, sisters, and drags— consistently brightened our lives. Each Femme in her own way made her gentle contribu- tion to her midshipman ' s life. Our mothers have from the beginning of our lives helped to shape and develop our characters and personalities. Their con- tinuing love and interest has been a source of strength and com- fort to us. Our sisters added their own special brightness as only a sister can do. Their newsy letters always helped to put sunshine into the day and the thought of their warm concern for us always had a cheering effect. Our drags too, whether they were the One- and-Only or One-among-Others, lent their charm and beauty to our lives. Because of our Femmes our lives were made brighter, gayer and warmer. ,M ;--j - ' f-i ■iMMnnMiiN ■ MISS SOUTHWESL Tamara Long Oklahoma City, Oklahoma - r -■ : " ' 4 .:. ' ' ,t . ■•■ ' 4 -- n.

JARA Section Editor , 1 : - :- We of the Class of 1 963 are proud of our reputation and of the many programs we have instituted during ou r four years at the United States Naval Academy. We are proud of the re-emphasis that we have given the Honor Concept, of the changes we have made to the Plebe Indoctrination System, of the spirit of Brigade-wide cooperation that we have tried to engender, and of the revitalization we have tried to give to firstclass leader- ship of the Brigade. More importantly, however, we are proud of our Class and our classmates because the fine reputation which the Class has enjoyed during its years at the Academy has been the result of the actions of the individuals who make its entity. Each individual has contributed of himself to his utmost. The class has been closeknit since its very beginning, and invariably, each of its members has worked for the benefit of the class, the Brigade, and the Service. In return the class has worked for its members. Duty, cooperation, consideration, and pride in the Service have been the ideals that we have tried to follow. It is this atti- tude that has made the class what it is today. We hope that this same attitude will prevail and lead us collectively and individually to future greatness, and finally, we hope that the Brigade of Mid- shipmen is a better organization now than it would have been if we had not been a part of it. k . ' i-J ' g t " - ' li ' rti . jj SHELBY OLIVER ALCOTT Allensvjlle, Kentucky Shelby, being a farm boy from Kentucky, typifies the old saying " you can take a boy out of the country, but you can ' t take the country out of the boy. " Shelby attended two years at Western State College in Ken- tucky before he discovered his true mission in life and came to the Acad- emy. He quickly adjusted to Academy life and turned his attentions to studies and to activities such as Hop Committee and Antiphonal Choir. Afternoons would find him participating in company sports, with cross country, in which he was a standout, being his favorite. Being an audio fan with an expensive taste he would never listen to music unless it was being reproduced by the very finest equipment and was " loud. " Never at a loss for words he could often be found in lengthy gab sessions with his classmates. He plans to wear the Navy Wings of Gold, and we feel sure he will be a credit to the service. ROSS KAY ANDERSON Tallahassee, Florida Hailing from the land of sunshine, " Snake " , a true Florida cracker, surprised many of his classmates with his outstanding academic ability. Quick to learn and industrious, Ross compiled an enviable academic record. However his ardent love for the books did not suppress his genuine southern sense of humor and his fondness for athletics. A high school footballer, " Snake " pursued both battalion and brigade boxing as athletic endeavor during his four years at the Naval Academy. In addition, he also com- pleted the rigorous airborne training course at Ft. Benning, Georgia. Dur- ing his few free moments, " Snake " could most likely be found either con- structing or flying his elaborate model airplanes. His combined qualities of intelligence and ambition will probably lead him toward post-graduate work and a successful future in Naval Aviation. WILLIAM GWYN ANDERSON Washington, D. C. After shifting homes every two years as a Navy junior. Bill decided that any place that offered him four straight years would be delightful, and he raced into the hungry arms of the Naval Academy. Having just completed two years in an ivy-covered New England prep school. Bill was determined to defend his individuality at any cost. The cost was great, but Bill ' s soul was unscathed. His New England background soon led him to play squash for the plebe team and then the varsity. When not breaking squash balls and rackets and opponents ' heads. Bill could be found driving his roommates insane with the sounds of Dave Brubeck, sleeping, rum-running, or lining up dates for his classmates. 242 Class of 1963 CREIGHTON ERNEST BARTON Omaha, Nebraska Craig came to USNA and brought his cheerful, easy-going, Mid- western personality with him. Craig started off plebe summer chipping his tooth on the butt of an M-1. With plebe year over, Craig found him- self on the Superintendent ' s List. Youngster year found Craig at odds with the Executive Department, but he managed to take the early morning exercise with his usual smile. His yellow B-robe, won from some un- fortunate Cadet at the Air Force Academy, brought to mind a large canary, and caused quite a stir. Craig is active in extracurricular activities, having formerly been a member of the Hop Committee. He is presently welcom- ing opposing teams for the Reception Committee. Craig ' s interests run from swimming and water-skiing to girls. His high academic average has enabled him to take a major in aerodynamics. His willingness tp work and desire to succeed should carry him far in his chosen field. WILLIAM JAMES BAUMHOFER Stevens Point, Wisconsin Amiable " Willaby " wasted no time after his high school days at Stevens Point. Plunging into the strange brand of college at the Naval Academy and pledging such a large fraternity didn ' t even phase him. Weekends, he could usually be found reading or rooting for his favorite professional football team, the Green Bay Packers. Intramural basketball, volleyball, and Softball were his fancy, and he excelled on several cham- pionship teams. Bill was elected Newman Club Company Representative by his classmates, and he was also an active member of the Reception Com- mittee. His soft spoken manner and genuine concern for others will enable him to succeed in any endeavor he chooses after graduation. GEORGE RONALD BAXTER Hubbard, Ohio Ron made the trip to USNA after graduating from high school at Hubbard, Ohio. An excellent student and football player in high school, Ron brought these talents with him to Annapolis. Academics proved no problem, and he became a sparkplug on the company light- weights with equal dexterity. While at Annapolis, he developed a liking for soccer, played on the Softball team, and spent much of his free time working for the Splinter and the Lucky Bag. He was also on the Reception Committee and the Brigade Activities Committee. Not being a dull lad, his major hobbies were " rock and roll " (a Ray Charles man all the way) and keeping two or three infatuated females from showing up on the same weekend. Since his first day at Navy, Ron aspired to become one of those Navy hot-shots with wings on their chests. If he continues his competent work nd determined effort in the future, as he surely will, he will always be a success. First Battalion 243 ROBERT ATTICKS BLACK, JR. Honolulu, Hawaii Hailing from the free world at large, but claiming Honolulu as home, Bob came here after graduation from lolani High School in Hono- lulu. Having run cross-country and played football there, he tried plebe football, but he gave it up in favor of a longing he developed in the Pacific, sailing, and shipped aboard the Freedom and the Highland Light. Plebe year he started fencing and as a youngster made the varsity on the foil team. Academics came relatively easy to him, and he was constantly on the Superintendent ' s List. Being a French slash, Bob took an active part in the French Club. His other interests here were the now extinct Gun Club and WRNV. He likes water sports, good music on hi-fi, guns, a certain woman, and fresh air. He is known to open the windows wide on a freezing winter day. Aspiring to the Marine Corps, Bob still figures the best way out is through. MICHAEL ALLAN BLACKLEDGE Houston, Texas Mike, a naturalized Texan and Navy Junior, spent four years at Lamar High school in Houston before his arrival at Mother Bancroft. Plebe year found " Mr. Blackridge " a ready pupil. In between come- arounds and chow calls, he managed to squeeze in enough studying to win a spot on the Superintendent ' s List, and his stars. Not the least of his academic endeavors has been his semi-official duty as company tutor. Mike has always found time to help out his roommates and others. He has been a mainstay of company basketball and volleyball teams since plebe year. His height, drive, and will-to-win have been valuable assets to his team- mates. Mike ' s ability and perseverance as a student and his good-natured enthusiasm promise him an interesting and successful career in the Navy. CARL MARTIN BOHLEY Palo Alto, California Carl was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, but he spent most of his formative years in Palo Alto, California. Before attending the Naval Academy, Carl went to San Jose State College in California, where he majored in Mechanical Engineering. He was an active member of the Brigade participating in the Model Railroad Club, Newman Club, and the Y. P. Squadron, which he enjoyed immensely. Having validated Math plebe year, Carl was known by his roommates as the great " gouger " in mathematics. Carl could have had higher grades, but being an easy-going fellow, he spent much time in extracurricular activities, which took valuable study time. Carl will always be remembered as the person to come to for academic difficulties for he was always willing to take a minute to help his classmates. 244 Class of 1 963 THOMAS EDWARD BOWMAN, III Camp Hill, Pennsylvania Although " Teb " admits he " felt like the Lone Ranger " at the be- ginning of Plebe summer, he soon fell into a busy schedule. He acquired many friends through his numerous activities which included Plebe foot- ball, crew, choir, Lucky Bag, and parties. Even though he has the typical brute appearance, his intelligence and extra push have put him into the " slash " classification. What about his female companionship? Plebe year, Teb saw a little rough sailing, but his locker door will always prove things have picked up since then. Not all of his time was spent at USNA. His favorite pastimes at home included golf, swimming, dancing (a born twister), and spending those romantic evenings in his uncle ' s cabin nestled in the quiet mountains of Pennsylvania. Diversity, coupled with his friend- liness and that extra push, are sure to mean a successful future career for Teb. RICHARD BRUCE BRYANT Williamsburg, Virginia Graduating at the top of his class in high school, Dick donned a white hat to pursue a year ' s hard study at Naval Prep School. In the sum- mer of ' 59, he moved from the bluffs of the Susquehanna to the banks of the Severn. During plebe year, Dick became known for his prowess in intramural sports but put most of his effort into the academic struggle. A man with an assortment of unusual interests, he would always be lacking in weekend cash. He ' ll always be remembered by his roommates, sitting at his desk long after taps scribbling academic notes or writing a far away friend, and then setting the alarm clock for early the next morning with no intention of getting up. His quick judgment and perception will aid him well in Naval Aviation. DUANE WILLIAMS BUCKINGHAM Wethersfield, Connecticut " Buck " , a proud New Englander, hails from Wethersfield, Con- necticut. With a fine record in both academics and athletics in high school. Buck had little trouble in adapting himself to the rigors of Academy life. In the fall and winter, his prowess was aggressively exhibited on the soccer field and squash courts, and when spring would arrive, his enthusiasm and great pride in yawl sailing were difficult to match. During third class year Buck acquired the distinction of becoming a member of the infamous " Century Club. " But in spite of this, he also earned for himself the posi- tion of company commander for the following year. A firm believer in the 30-hour day, he could have been found on many a night poring over a Wall Street Journal or doing outside reading and extra study in the humanities during his own late, late lights. Buck ' s steadfast determination and unique ambition will surely make for smooth sailing in his Naval career. First Battalion 245 RICHARD PATRICK BYRNES Washington Township, New Jersey Rick came to USNA from Brooklyn, New York, and brought with him the typical accent which made him easily distinguishable among the crowd. During high school days he found time to earn three varsity letters on the track team, and pick up a little knowledge of the guitar. While here at the Academy, Rick was a member of the Catholic Choir and par- ticipated in many intramural activities. While academics took up the major portion of his time. Rick still found time to strum his guitar, defend the fast pace of big city life, root passionately for the New York Yankees, and log in a proportionate amount of time on the blue- trampoline. The Navy holds the prominent position in Rick ' s plans for the future. Naval Avia- tion constitutes the dominant feature. A successful career in the Navy should present no difficulty for this likeable Brooklynite. JOHN JOSEPH CALANDE Norwich, Connecticut J. J. came to the Academy from the Naval Prep School. After graduation from the Norwich Free Academy in Norwich, Connecticut, he attended the University of Connecticut for one year before enlisting in the Navy. While at the university he was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity. His activities here at the Academy included the varsity pistol team, WRNV representative. Class Company representative, company vol- leyball, soccer, and cross-country. J. J. hopes to go to Naval Air Training to begin his career. Future plans also include hopes for a family of six. JOHN RAYMOND CARROLL Pawtucket, Rhode Island Jack was born and raised in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, where he attended Saint Raphael ' s Academy and the University of Rhode Island. After one year at URI, he bid farewell to campus life and joined the Brigade. Jack quickly acclimated himself to Navy life and since plebe summer, he has been excelling in all fields. Athletics, including company cross-country, plebe and varsity track, always held Jack ' s interest. Every afternoon he could be found running around the nearest track or writing letters to one of his " OAO ' s " . Jack is planning a degree in engineering, and upon graduation, he intends to enter this field. Next to athletics and academics. Jack ' s favorite pastime is happy hours. Whichever service Jack chooses, he is sure of having a fine career. 246 Class of 1 963 PETER COE CARROTHERS Jonesboro, Arkansas Pete came to the Brigade after two years at Arkansas State Univer- sity, where he was a member of Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity. His college experience enabled him to get in on the ground floor of the new validation program, and he moved a semester ahead. Sportswise, Pete ran for the plebe track team, but his running days ended with a broken leg midway through Youngster year which forced him to concentrate on his duties as varsity football manager. Pete liked his liberty (all types too), and he managed never to miss a good deal. Noted for his taste and selection of women, including plebe year, Pete ' s Southern charm always managed to import some real beauties to the banks of the Severn. Pete was never with- out the benefit of a few faithfuls, and no doubt he never will be! PETER JOHN CHANEY Portland, Oregon Pete, or " P.J. " , as he is known to his friends in the Brigade, came to the Naval Academy after a year of studying pre-medicine at Portland State College. The carefree attitude of Pete ' s days at PSC carried over to his 4 years at the Academy. This carefree attitude, however, caused many memorable encounters with the Executive Department. Because academics posed no threat to Pete during his four years, he was able to devote a great deal of time and energy to company and battalion sports. He was an outstanding goalie on the battalion lacrosse team and added strength to the company fieldball and volleyball teams. His sense of fairness and fine personality won for him many friends throughout the Brigade. Regardless of the branch of service he enters, Pete will always be welcomed wherever he may be stationed. AUSTIN EUGENE CHAPMAN Tryon, North Carolina Austin came to the Academy from Tryon, North Carolina, where he attended Tryon High School. In high school he participated in various clubs and sports, but he was primarily interested in football. He won all state honors in this sport. After one year of schooling at Columbian Pre- paratory School he entered the Academy. That fall found Austin having a good year with the Plebe football team, but due to injuries and other things he had tougher luck on the varsity. After the football season Austin could be found participating in company fieldball and other sports. His main hobby is hunting and his biggest gripe is that he can no longer get out in the fields and hunt. He is the only person who can run five touch- downs and kill ten ducks in one dream. Upon graduation Austin hopes to see the world on Navy wings. First Battalion 247 JAMES BLAINE CONNAUGHTON North Lima, Ohio This smiling Irishman arrived at U.S.N. A. just one month after graduation from high school in North Lima, Ohio, where his activities were centered around sports and travel. During his stay on the Severn, Jim expanded his range of activities. Sports participation was still one of his chief interests, and variety was the spice of Jim ' s sports life. His interests ranged from cross-country and basketball to football and swim- ming. After youngster cruise Jim spent three weeks at Fort Benning, Georgia, winning his coveted paratrooper wings. No one ever heard of an Irishman who couldn ' t sing, and Jim was no exception. The Catholic Choir benefited from his talent as well as his classmates and friends. Academics were no real problem for Jim, thus leaving him free for partici- pation in any friendly debates going on. Jim ' s future is certain to be one filled with accomplishment. His determination to get the job done well will be a valuable asset as will his friendly nature. KENDALL RAYMOND COOK Grass Lake, Michigan Although Ken is from Grass Lake, Michigan, all his mail came from Jackson, Michigan. You wouldn ' t realize that he came directly out of high school because he really didn ' t have to worry about academics. Nat- urally, he studied, but there were always those last few minutes of letter writing. And then he was either thinking about, talking about, or writing to his " OAO. " During free time when he wasn ' t adding his deep voice to those of the Antiphonal Choir, he was taking a swat at his opponent in battalion boxing. His red hair would lead one to think he had a quick temper, but Ken seldom had a need to use it. His good humor and witty remarks left little room for anything but laughter. If Ken decides to be- come a career officer, the Navy will surely have gained a choice man. MICHAEL THOMAS CORGAN New Rochelle, New York Mike arrived at the Naval Academy directly after graduating from high school where he had excelled in academics. His aptitude for liberal arts was immediately revealed by his high standing in these courses. Not devoting all his time to academics, however, Mike made the varsity fencing team youngster year. His interest in foreign affairs was shown by his membership in the Foreign Relations Club and his positions on the staff of the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference. The Russian Club and the Newman Club were also among his extracurricular activities. In addi- tion, he found time to enjoy classical music and do a considerable amount of reading. Having been very impressed by the training, during Aviation Summer, Mike is thinking seriously of flying after graduation. He takes a great interest in professional subjects and will be an asset to the fleet. 248 Class of 1 963 ROBERT REDMOND CRONIN Silver Spring, Maryland Robert Redmond Cronin, born in Arlington, Massachusetts, now pledges his allegiance to Silver Spring, Maryland. Robert is one of those members of the Brigade who claims he wouldn ' t turn back to breakfast, but who bleeds Blue and Gold every time he cuts himself shaving. Bob will always be remembered for his loud participation in the brass section of our Drum and Bugle Corps. Some people claim he enjoys liberty more than academics, and they ' re right. Although he always was a good English student, this verbal facility never helped him in telling a joke. He wasn ' t known as " dry Bob " because of his teetotaling. Bob looks forward to a career in Navy Air, which should fit him, as his feet were never firmly planted on the ground. ALEXANDER BRODERICK DAUNIS West Barrington, Rhode Island The only logical place for this avid sailor was in the Navy. Sandy lived near the water most of his life and did a lot of sailing. He expected to find Academy life close to the water too. Was he in for a surprise! After a hectic Plebe year, he quickly became adjusted to the Academy and took part in many activities. You might have seen him out on the river with the varsity Dinghy team, or down in the Log office supervising the next issue, as his editorial responsibilities required, or arranging another meeting of the clandestine Bridge Club. Life at the Academy was not dull for this boy, he always seemed to figure out a way for the " group " to throw another party. Aside from the daily problem of getting out of the sack every morning, he seemed to enjoy his stay at USNA. In the next years you will see him in the Navy — he will be happy as long as he is close to the water. VICTOR EDWIN DEAN Winter Park, Florida Being used to the warm winters of Florida,, Vic found it a little difficult adjusting to the cooler weather of Annapolis and USNA. Coming to the Naval Academy directly from high school, he quickly adapted him- self to college life both scholastically and socially. Vic could always be found around the boxing ring or on the Softball field after classes, pro- vided he wasn ' t helping out on the Hop Committee or the Brigade Activi- ties Committee. Whenever a discussion was taking place on North-South relations, Vic could be relied upon to back up the Rebels to the hilt, no matter what the specific topic might be. Upon graduation Vic plans a career in Navy Line. First Battalion 249 JAMES JOSEPH DeLONG Lafayette, Indiana To those who knew him well, Jim was known as " JJ- ' Certainly a supporter of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, " ].]. " would talk at great length of his Hoosier State. A long time member of the Drum and Bugle Corps, Jim would insist on practicing his drums at all hours. This didn ' t interfere with his studies as his academic ability served him well in all departments. Jim had the obvious distinction of being a midshipman to have been on almost every sports list at one time or another. Quick to defend any of his various opinions, he could help make any short study hour even shorter. However, his rollicking sense of humor kept any dis- cussion from being too serious. A banker ' s son and an investor himself, Jim will be a valuable asset to the service, no matter which branch he chooses. CHARLES EUGENE DEHNERT Evamton, Illinois After a year at ND, Gene decided to see what the Navy-Notre Dame game looked like from the other side of the stadium. He soon became one of Coach Deladrier ' s favorites up in the fencing loft. No matter how crowded his academic schedule. Gene always seemed to find time between writing letters and re-charging his batteries on the blue EMF for occasional study breaks, although he was careful never to let this weakness become habit-forming. Nevertheless, to the constant amazement of his roommates, he always seemed to pull above average grades and was especially outstanding in Bull, due, no doubt, to the combination of a glib tongue, a fast brand of humor with a sarcastic twist, and an unusually retentive memory for such basic facts as the blood type of the man who rowed number two port when ' Washington crossed the Delaware. All in all, the Naval service will be receiving one of its true professional men upon Gene ' s graduation, as his friends and he himself will readily admit. 250 Class of 1 963 I ANTHONY PHILLIPS DITTO Bethesda, Maryland- Tony came to the United States from North Borneo, where he was born in Jesselton, the son of a United States Navy Lieutenant and his wife. He moved to Washington when only two weeks old and has been on the move ever since. He declares that his favori.te town is Merauke in New Guinea on the Arafura Sea. Tony certainly loves to travel, and so fir has utilized most of his spare time in traveling to different parts of the globe. Upon completion of his four years at USNA, Tony ' s one great ambition is to circle the Earth at least fifty times before settling clown. As all of us know, Tony will no doubt accomplish this, and much more during his travels and career in the service. JOHN WILLIAM DOHRMAN Helena, Montana John came to the Academy after a year at Utah State University and two in the Marine Corps. Although he had a Congressional appoint- ment, he still insists that he Just came to paint the walls one day and was told to get in line to be issued uniforms. Athletically inclined, he played both plebe and varsity track and basketball; however, during the fall season he could always be found psychologically preparing for the next day ' s quizzes. Summer leaves provided him with opportunity to travel. Europe was the destination of his adventures, with France the center of attraction. Our loss will be the service ' s gain. ALFRED FRANKLIN DOUGHERTY Helena, Montana " Tank " came to us from Helena High, and baseball was his trade. Plebe year was taken with " a roll " by our hero, but his baseball career came to a screeching halt as he strove for perfection on the Midshipman ' s haven, his bed. Youngster year proved his " making " as he " twisted " off half his frame, imported a home town beauty to keep him company on the week- ends, and excelled athletically and academically. He started Second Class year learning how USNA deals with bootleggers. His only comment: " I should have drunk it myself. " Never one to be kept on the canvas, " Tank " came up fighting and lived up to his middle name " Fish, " both in the pool for Navy and on the town for Al. Regardless of the lucky service who claims this young lad, everyone concerned shall gain; from the local girls to the local pubs and right on down to his chosen uniform. First Battalion 251 CARL LOUIS DOUGHTIE Tarboro, North Carolina Hailing from the tobacco land of North Carolina, Carl came to the Naval Academy after a year at North Carolina State. With this background, plebe academics posed no major problems until he met the Foreign Lan- guages Department. The successful completion of two years of Spanish was Carl ' s proudest accomplishment, bringing him just a little closer toward winning his " Wings of Gold. " Active in the intramural sports program, Carl was a mainstay on the company soccer and football teams. As a member of the Reception Committee and the Log and Splinter Staff, he could always be counted upon to do an outstanding job, and he was a welcome addition to the many football game parties held at the Sheraton in Philadelphia. His profound love of water skiing took him home at every available opportunity. A true gentleman in the strictest sense, Carl ' s combination of ability and desire have no other choice but to lead him along the path of success. CLAY JOSEPH DUGAS, II Baton Rouge, Louisiana Clay blessed the shores of the Severn with the southern charm of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and brought with him a Golden Gloves Cham- pionship. He spent a year at Louisiana State University and Columbian Prep, before trying his hand at the " big time " . He won the Brigade Championship boxing title in his weight class as a Plebe and was the first in our class to win the coveted " N " . He went on in boxing and 150 pound football and was the only one in our class to win an N blanket as a youngster. He has made up for his size by his drive and determination along with his natural ability. " Hey Doog " can be found on a weekend in his favorite drag house, but not at the hops. Never a star with the books, Clay has had to spend some of those weekends studying. However, his perseverance has brought him through. Clay looks toward the Marine Corps for his career and should prove himself a fine leader. STEPHEN MACK DUNCAN Oklahoma City, Oklahoyna Showing true Oklahoma spirit, Steve arrived at USNA sporting a Stetson hat which he reluctantly exchanged for his Navy blues. Coming straight from high school, Steve concentrated his efforts on varsity wres- tling and could be found any afternoon in the wrestling loft trying to prove his theory that no one can beat an Oklahoman. Known as Sam, he is best remembered along with his Oklahoma accent, for his stubborn deter- mination to master anything that provided a challenge. Steve never lost his enthusiasm and counted each day as a lesson learned and one less day until the next leave. While on duty at the Academy during second class summer, Steve learned the importance of good leadership which he has shown in his interest and concern in the Brigade and his own development as an officer. Steve is eagerly looking forward to his career and the many new challenges that the future holds. 252 Class of 1963 JAMES WATTS ECKERT Tyrone, Pennsylvania After a successful year at Penn State, Jim decided to move on to bigger and better things at the Naval Academy. Here, he made his mark as a hard worker and an astute student. Frequently on the Superintendent ' s list, Jim always was ready to help his classmates along in this line. The Antiphonal Choir was one of Jim ' s pleasures at the Academy, as well as the Foreign Relations Club. Although not a letter winner, Jim ' s running ability always proved very valuable on the company and battalion teams as well as on the " Flying Squadron " . No slouch when it comes to the femmes, Jim ' s drags often graced the appearance of the yard. Along this line, Jim doesn ' t worry about marriage, since he feels that it will come soon enough. With his academic ability and usual hard work, we know that Jim will succeed in whatever job he will receive in the Fleet. JAMES DONNELY ECKLAND Alexandria, Virginia The " Old Man " of the company, Jim came to the Naval Academy by way of San Mateo College and Georgetown University. No stranger to the ways of the service — with his father a career officer in the army and his brother in the Air Force — Jim decided to round out the family and cast his lot with the Navy Blue. Being company honor and ring and crest representative occupied many of Jim ' s spare hours. Dinghy sailing, varsity rifle team, and cross-country kept him busy on the sports scene. The academic departments got along all right with Jim, alth ough they would probably have been happier if he had spent a little more time studying and a little less entering contests. The fact that he lived in D.C. helped many of his classmates in regards to imported femmes and wheels for " Operation Exit Annapolis. " Although he enjoys oceanography and skin diving, Jim was duly impressed at Ellson Field and would like to fly helicopters. FRANK ROBERTS EDRINGTON, II Castro Valley, California Frank, a Navy Junior, came to us after a year at Columbia Prep. After attending eighteen different schools, he finally took the big step and became a midshipman. His first accomplishment was winning the Plebe summer freckle contest. After this he could be found playing tennis, 150 pound football, or rowing crew. Frank was a member in good standing of the French Club, and when not reading a French play or story, he could be found playing his bongos or writing one of his famous letters. On weekends Frank was never to be found in Bancroft, he was entertain- ing the public, or should we say the fairer half of the public. In fact, we could say that Frank was one of ' 63 ' s most versatile and valuable public- relations men. Following in his dad ' s footsteps, Frank is looking forward to a career in his favorite domain, the sea. We of the Navy are proud to have Frank on our team. First Battalion 253 EVAN ALLEN EVANS Wichita, Kansas After a year on the campus of the University of Kansas, where he participated in football and track and was an active member of the Delta Chi chapter, Evan departed the sprawling Midwest to concentrate on the more serious aspects of life which the Naval Academy had to offer. His unique name of E van Evans and even more unique personality have made him an unforgettable person to the feminine circles of Annapolis, for a great variety of local ladies have tried unsuccessfully to secure his coveted class crest. His extracurricular activities included track, weight lifting, and attending the German Club meetings. Always a star member in the aca- demic world, Evan will most certainly have little difficulty with the nuclear engineering courses he intends to pursue through the postgraduate program in the Air Force. JAMES CLYDE FARLEY Pikeville, Kentucky When Jim came to USNA from Pikeville, he carried with him the distinction of being one of the few men from his district ever to be ap- pointed a midshipman. Since then there has been a great influx of ap- pointees from that area, a tribute to his persuasiveness, the flash of his uniform, or both. Jim survived Plebe year as a varsity crew manager and as a member of the Antiphonal Choir. On his Youngster cruise, he learned the life of a destroyerman and yearned for his old Kentucky home. Through Youngster year he continued his service to the crew and the Choir. During Second Class year Jim continued with his previous extra- curricular activities and struggled to stay ahead of the infamous Second Class academics. Jim came a long way from the hills of Kentucky to be- come an officer in the USN, and he will go even further in the service. He is a fine example of the men that uphold the tradition of the Naval Academy and the Naval Service. PETER ANTHONY FEATHERSTONE Ridgewood, New Jersey Pete came to the Academy after graduation from Ridgewood High School. Soon after his arrival, he became aware of the fact that his name was going to be a source of trouble during plebe year. A previous graduate named Feat herstone had left a bad impression. Pete wasn ' t a relative, but it ' s always nice to start off that way. " Feather, " a hard worker with a good head on his shoulders, has been on the Superintendent ' s List most of the time. He plays company Softball and basketball and battalion football. Besides being an active participant, he is also pretty close to being an ex- pert on baseball and basketball. With " Feather ' s " intelligence and hard working, friendly attitude, he will have little trouble being a big success in whatever he does. 254 Class of 1 963 I STEVEN HENRY FERENCIE Chagrin Falls, Ohio An ardent sports lover, Steve came to USNA after four successful years of athletics at Kenston High School. Hoping to continue playing football, he was hampered by injuries. Steve did however get a chance to play intramural sports including battalion football, basketball and lacrosse. He found ways to enjoy himself without sacrificing study time and was always ready with a friendly word. He carried this ability to have fun with him on his summer cruises and readily made friends in every port of call. Very proud of being a part of the Naval Academy, Steve has continually worked hard to prepare for his future career. He developed strong interests in all fields relating to the Navy and other subjects which might be of later use. Steve is looking forward to the future and what those days will bring. WILLIAM CHARLES FITZGERALD Montpelier, Vermont This curly-headed Irishman from Montpelier, Vermont, is one of the types that give the Brigade its reputation in many fields. He is truly devoted to the service. After thirty-four months as an enlisted man he looks to be a thirty year career man. " Fitz " , as all his friends know him, has been in nu merous predicaments on liberty which have furthered his reputation for having a good sense of humor. He is quite an athlete, having played Battalion fencing, company softball, heavyweight football, basketball, and Plebe fencing. In addition to these organized sports, he is a vicious weekend tennis player. During Second Class summer Bill was on the Plebe detail. Many nights were spent laughing at his little episodes with the Plebes. Then there is a serious side to " Baby Huey " , as his roommates once called him. His fine record in aptitude and scholastics is only a small indication of the purpose with which he pursues his goal to be a good officer. PATRICK JAMES FRANK, JR Bloomfield Hills, Michigan " P.J. " came to Navy on loan from the playing fields of Notre Dame and brought with him obscure bits of sports information, poetry, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and a tremendous sense of humor, which ma de him the life of any party. It is the latter for which he will be most remembered, especially by the Executive Department. If popularity is an accurate yardstick by which to measure success, then Pat will get ahead no matter what he chooses to do. His experiences with UDT second class summer has at- tracted his attention to this field. First Battalion 255 ANDREW GEORGE Rochester, New York When Rochester, New York ' s delegate to USNA arrived on July 10, he carried his suitcase in one hand and his rigging knife and bongos in the other. His only distinction was his lack of a middle initial. After a thorough Plebe summer indoctrination became only a painful memory, and academic year number one with the Twenty-Fourth Company creeped slowly onward. Sleepy, as he was affectionately ( ?) called by some of the First Class, joined the Plebe swimming squad. In the spring he became a member of the Ocean Sailing squadron. A fine dinghy sailor back home on Lake Ontario, his talents were greatly appreciated by the crew of the Royona. Andy devoted his time to Ocean Sailing in the fall and sprmg from Youngster year on. Of course, he is going to make the Navy his career, even though sailing ships are considered obsolete now. I ' m sure that the Navy will find the kind of officer that they are looking for in the person of Andy George. WILLIAM EDWARD GRAHAM Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania Bill, a native of Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, • came to the Academy after two years at Philadelphia Textile Institute. Although this was quite a change in atmosphere, he adapted himself readily, made friends quickly, and became a credit to the Brigade. Bill, quite the man with the girls, always had a problem of whom he should date. When he finally decides on his one and only there are going to be quite a few broken hearts. He always applied himself wholeheartedly in his athletic endeavors and did well at any sport he attempted, however his favorite and the one to which he donated most of his free time was basketball. This ability of his to apply and adapt himself to any situation or environment will insure that he will be capable of doing an outstanding job in any position to which he is assigned. GEORGE WILLIAM GRIDER, JR. Memphis, Tennessee Contrary to Memphis, Tennessee tradition, George waited until late to pick out his guitar in Barcelona, Spain, while roaming through Europe. Neither was it to be expected that the son of a most distinguished sub- mariner take such an interest in aviation. A former " white hat " who came here from Bainbridge, he divided his time between two great loves; the girls met on Glee Club and Chapel Choir trips and the classical guitar. His only complaint was that the Bull Department was always trying to infringe on his extracurricular activities. George leaves the Academy won- dering which was worse, a tough Plebe Year or the sea sickness suffered during youngster cruise. Let ' s hope he enjoys life in the fleet as much as he did times spent around Mother Bancroft. 256 Class of 1 963 RICHARD EUGENE GUFFEY Pensacola, Florida Dick was affectionately known to his friends as " Guff. " An " army brat " most of his Hfe, he is widely traveled and has taken up residence in many of our states as well as France. Here at the Academy, Dick was always one of the more active members of the Brigade. He held member- ship in the Newman Club and the Foreign Relations Club. Ocean Sailing and Fencing were his big sports. And last but probably most important, he was the company honor representative for his class. Known to be no slouch with the female set, Dick was reputed to possess the acquaintance of more beautiful girls than any man in the company. A hard worker and a very sincere person, we wish all the luck and success possible to Dick in the future. STEPHEN DUANE GUTHRIE San Bernardino, California Steve came to USNA after a year at Severn School. Severn is an Academy prep school, and Steve had no trouble maintaining a high aca- demic average there. Here at the Academy, Steve was active in sports, par- ticipating in battalion track, company soccer and cross-country. He seemed to be continually hitting the books, but somehow managed to turn out a huge volume of letters to his cross-country collection of lovelies. Steve (universally feared by members of the plebe class) was well-liked by his classmates. His determination to finish jobs begun and to finish them well has helped him during his stay here and will continue to help him in the future. Having been converted from other plans to Naval Aviation during second class summer, Steve leans toward a career in Navy Air, where he will certainly prove to be an enthusiastic and competent officer. FREDERICK PETER HAENI Huntington, New York Pete would have to be listed among those who have been most successful in that never ending game of " beating the system. " He was able to get more sleep, more sun time (artificial, of course), more extra food into his room, and more knowledge out of a little study time than anyone else — it seemed. Hailing from Long Island Sound where he learned the ways of sailors and the sea at a young age, Pete soon found his way into USNA. Although he came with plans of swimming for Navy, his talents went unobserved while on the plebe team, and he was often later heard saying that he didn ' t want to swim on that old team anyway. His other activities included ocean sailing in which he was a most valuable asset to the crew. When he was not reading the Wall Street Journal, Pete could be found building Model Corvettes while vocally shifting the gears. His good humor and friendly manner have won Pete many friends and will make him a welcome man in any wardroom. First Battalion 257 TOM BLAND HANEY Oklahonid City. Oklahoma After spending four outstanding years in high school and one in college, Tom swapped his civies for Navy blue. While at the Academy, he found it easier to conform to the rigorous routine by making light of the many situations encountered during the long and bleak days. This brightened not only his existence but also those around him. A staunch " Okie " and a strong supporter of the mid-western philosophy of life, Tom was the recipient of much good natured criticism concerning his easy going western manner. Golf has been the mainstay of Tom ' s extracurricular activities. An outstanding junior and collegiate golfer at home, Tom played first man on the plebe team and won his first " N " as a Youngster. Look- ing forward toward a future in aviation, Tom should be a fine addition to Pensacola and the fleet. MICHAEL JOHN HARMAN Netv Hampton, Iowa The first day after Mike arrived at USNA, he went over to the gym to find the wrestling loft. For Mike, one of the greatest joys in life is found on the wrestling mat, and it is there that he has done an exceptional job of representing Navy. Coming straight out of high school, Mike ad- mits that he had a little trouble with academics but not enough to get him worried. His whole outlook on life is to take it as it comes and get the most enjoyment out of it. In doing so, he has made many friends, and very few enemies — except possible opposing wrestlers. Never a shy one, Mike believes the greatest part of the country is the Midwest and loves to talk about it. With his fine ability and happy-go-lucky personality, Mike seems certain to go far in his chosen field. BEN WILSON HARRIS Tracy City, Tennessee Ben came to the Academy from Tracy City, Tennessee, a small town in the mountains of middle Tennessee. He participated in company Softball and basketball until the advent of the wrestling season. He spent his winters working hard for a position on the Plebe and varsity wrestling teams. He was a member o f the Political Economics Club and added a touch of his southern accent to the French Club. We know he will be successful in all his future work and will prove to be a great asset to the Navy. 258 Class of 1963 JON RICHARD HARRIS Pineville, Louisiana Jon was destined to wear blue before his birth, for his dad was a twenty-year man who made appearances at Pearl Harbor and Normandy. Because of his Navy affiliation, Jon started his traveling early and finally ended up in high school in Pineville, Louisiana, where he quickly estab- lished himself in sports and academics. After earning nine varsity letters, he graduated as valedictorian of his class. He has gotten along well with his classmates and with the members of higher estates. His consistent studying and mental ability have put him near the top in academics. He is never t oo busy to help that classmate who can ' t quite under- stand the lesson, nor is he too busy to use his various resources to create an amusing situation. He has those talents and that drive which have sent him through the Academy with an excellent record and which have made him worthy of the uniform he is now wearing. TIM R. HARVEY Racine, Wisconsin Tim came to us from the land of beer and the Milwaukee Braves. Almost immediately he went to the top ten percent of the class, where he ' s remained ever since. His love of language and natural ability in math helped him to benefit from the overload program. When he isn ' t cracking the books or dragging on our sunshiny weekends, " Shtoza " Harvey can be found strumming his guitar or practicing with the rest of the " Spiffies " in one of their many hide-outs in the labyrinthial maze that is the basement of Mother Bancroft. Many of us will remember Tim as a sincere friend with a quick smile and easy manner, always ready to help us through the pitfalls of youngster steam or skinny. With a lively personality and quick wits, Tim is sure to be a success in whatever field he chooses. WILLIAM WIER HILLGAERTNER Hillsboro, Oregon Bill came to the Academy as a representative of the Marine Corps. Finding military life here at the Academy to his liking, he was able to conform to the system with little trouble, and as far as anyone knows, he is the only man to run a Marine Recruiting Station in Bancroft. " Willy " has been active in company sports, the French Club, and the YP squadron. He hasn ' t been bothered too much by the academics, but he and the PT in- structors didn ' t get along. He swam more like a turtle than a fish during his days in the pool. Willy is well liked and well known for his relaxed attitude and easy-going nature. He is always being kidded about his past service, but he vows he will never change. He has a great future in store for him. First Battalion 259 FRANCIS WARREN HILTON, JR. Albany, New York Frank, or Conrad, a nickname he picked up because of a relative of his, is a fine example of what Albany, New York, can turn out if it tries hard enough. Entering the Academy straight out of high school, Frank proved the worth of New York ' s public school system by breezing through with near Superintendent ' s List grades on a minimum amount of studying. The spare time he gained through his " minimized study " program was put to good use however. Early portions of study hour were often taken up with verbal combat with his roommates, and the latter portions were spent writing letters, all, strangely enough, addressed to the same person. Frank ' s athletic ability was almost inversely proportional to his size — 5 ' 7 " , 150 lbs. He ran the hurdles in track in addition to handling full time job of man- ager. His company always benefited from his participation in intramural sports which included soccer, cross country, and squash. With his genuine interest in others and his ambition backed with ability, Frank is sure to be personally successful and a valuable asset to the Navy. DANIEL ANDREW HITZELBERGER Glassboro, New Jersey " Hitz " is one of the few remaining Napsters in the Brigade, being as good an ex-marine as is possible. He has seen the light for he hopes to rejoin the Corps upon graduation. He has been very active at the Academy, being on the reception committee. Honor Representative, a member of the sailing team, and manager of the pistol team. Other than French, he has had no appreciable difficulties in academics. He has had a few nick-names, a couple being " Dumbo " and " Packy " — the reasons for these being rather obvious. But Dan is open-minded (sometimes extremely so) and has a great personality. This favorite son of New Jersey should make a name for himself and really go places once he has the Academy behind him. WILLIAM RIVELL HOLLENACK Mickleton, New Jersey Bill came to USNA from Swedesboro High School and was kept busy plebe summer making the quick transition from civilian to military life. Being a chap who wasn ' t afraid of work and generally keeping his nose out of trouble Bill adapted himself very well, and plebe year turned him out as a squared-away midshipman. Bill had a quiet disposition which was only interrupted by frequent debates on the Yankees or a bull session on current events. Quite a participant in sports. Bill was outstanding in in- tramural football and Softball, leading teams to battalion and company championships. With more important things on his mind, Bill limited his dragging to special occasions, and as a result could boast a high academic standing. His ability and wise set of values are sure to lead Bill to a resourceful career. 260 Class of 1 963 DAVID CROSBY HONHART Warren, Pennsylvania Dave Honhart hails from a small northern Pennsylvania town situated in the heart of the Alleghenies. He attended Warren High School and was graduated from there with the Class of 1959. During his four years at the school he took an active part in various extracurricular activities, including student council and various choirs. Sportswise, tennis and track were his favorites and occupied much of his time during the regular sea- sons. Why did he come to the Naval Academy. ' Well, the way Dave tells the story is that his one desire was to go to West Point. Somehow he ended up at the Naval Academy and is very pleased that he did. At the Academy he was selected to sing in the Glee Club and Catholic Choir. His efforts in the sports field have been limited to the Plebe tennis team and various intramural sports. Flying has always been one of his ambitions, but due to slight eye astigmatism, Navy line will probably be his field. OTIS EDGAR HOWARD, III Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Ed entered the Naval Academy directly from high school and found himself to be one of the youngest members of the class. After edging out the Engineering Department plebe year in a close race, he has been con- stantly on the upswing and now stands in the upper half of the class aca- demically. His interest and activity in company sports proved him to be a valuable asset to his teammates on the athletic fields. Next to sports Ed ' s prime interest was the opposite sex, and they found him equally as interest- ing. A career man through and through, Ed will undoubtedly go a long way in the service of his country. WILLIAM LEE HOWARD Worland, Wyoming Bill came to us from Wyoming with legs that widely proclaimed him a born horseman. After two years in the NROTC at the University of Nebraska as a philosophy major, he took the step and came to USNA where he was quickly nick-named Tecumseh. An ardent admiree of Cyrano de Bergerac, Bill could be found every afternoon stomping up and down the mats in the fencing loft whanging his classmates with an epee. ' Eve- nings he spent orating and arguing in the Foreign Relations Club or the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conf erence. Bill devoted every week-end to following another great swordsman, D ' Artagnan, in his pursuit of hap- piness with some excellent female help. Bill has long been enamoured of those sleek greyhounds of the sea, destroyers, and is looking forward to spending more than one tour of duty aboard them. First Battalion 261 GEORGE ALAN RUBER Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Perhaps it was the romantic possibilities of a Midshipman ' s carefree life that lured " House " Huber into blue. He soon acclimated himself to the worldly and cultured atmosphere by the Bay and read omnivorously in periodicals, almanacs, and journals. So interested did he become in cur- rent events, he learned by rote all the heads of state of the world. His dramatic ability manifested itself in impromptu dinnertime impersonations of vultures and reptiles. In athletics, the Skull ' s aggressive play and sling- shot arm made him an asset to any football or Softball team. Although his French rather resembled Latin, George achieved high honors in aca- demics by determination and a keen intellect. An uncannily accurate wit and warm sincerity earned Hubes the respect and friendship of all. George exhibits all the requisites of a dynamic leader and will doubtless be tops in his chosen field. PAUL THOMAS JARA Western Springs, Illinois Paul, a Chicago suburbanite, attended Fenwick High School before entering our hallowed halls. In his years at the Academy, PT found extra time that the rest of us never knew existed. He was always looking for something to do, and if a job needed doing, Paul could be counted on to get it done. Never one to spend weekends sitting in his room he could always be found at Mrs. Mac ' s draghouse either dragging, playing cards, or watching TV. He was a varsity squash manager, a member of the Catholic Choir and model railroad club, and editor of the biographies section of our Lucky Bag. He also participated in intramural squash, Softball, and cross-country. On top of this, Paul kept his marks fairly high, and on occasion his name appeared on the coveted Superintendent ' s List. His prime interest lies in Submarines, a field where a tireless worker like Paul will be happily welcomed aboard. KARL LEE KAUP Marionville, Missouri Straight from the farms of southwest Missouri, Karl was among the few members of his class who handled academics with little effort. Karl consistently managed to maintain high grades, even while participat- ing in the overload program. His interests were not, however, confined to academics. Besides being an " N " winner on the light-weight crew team, he participated in a variety of intramural sports. His interest in music kept him busy in the Antiphonal Choir and Concert Band. Karl ' s weekend activities proved that he was a lover, not a fighter. His ready smile and easygoing manner insured him of having an ornament on his arm almost every weekend. We are sure that Karl will go far in any field which he enters and will be an invaluable asset to the Fleet. 262 Class of 1 963 JOHN ANGUS KELLY Aiea, Hawaii An island boy, John was appointed to USNA after graduating from Farrington High School in Honolulu. Being a track man in high school, John was especially good in company cross-country, in which he was top man. Johnny is also an able boxer and soccer player. Throughout his stay here, he has shown a marked aptitude for academics. John ' s easy- going manners, interrupted occasionally by provocation of his Irish blood, make him an interesting person. The most important single attribute to John ' s career at the Academy was being talent scout of the fairer sex. In this field, John was among the more proficient: he had that certain ability to snow any girl in a very short time. Unfortunately, he himself was not immune to their charms. Besides this, John is an avid sailor, a taste de- veloped in the deep blue waters of the Pacific, and an amateur radio operator. His aspiration is to become a bistro piano player. ALFRED WAYNE KENLIN Nesquehoning, Pennsylvania Having spent a year in the fleet as an enlisted man, Fred, never one to stay on the bottom very long, decided that he would rather be on the other side of the fence. So summer of ' 59 found him on the banks of the Severn along with a thousand other plebes where he began his four year long journey to Ensign. Plebe summer found Fred a member of the Drum and Bugle Corps, but he dropped out at the beginning of academic year to concentrate on his studies. Sportswise, Fred was on the plebe and var- sity gym team where he worked sidehorse and parallel bars, concentrating more on the sidehorse. Fred also found time to go out for company squash youngster year. Never one to miss out on liberty (either on weekends or after football games), Fred could always be found in the company of a pretty young lady and probably always will be. WILLIAM LEROY KENNEDY San Antonio, Texas Claiming Texas as his home. Bill came north to try Navy life. Bringing with him a curiosity and a desire to learn, he became an engineer for WRNV and a hi-fi bug. We won ' t forget the nights when a burst of music and cries of anguish emanated from his room as he ran out wielding a soldering gun. Everyone who has been fortunate enough to make Bill ' s acquaintance realizes what a true friend and wonderful person he is. Navy Line is calling him, and he will become a welcomed addition to the Tin Can Fleet. First Battalion 263 ALBERT WATKINS KEY Marshall, Texas Albert Watkins Key, known to some of the fairer sex as Albie, is a strong-hearted, romping, stomping longhorn from Texas, and don ' t you forget it! Besides wearing that Texas look about him, Al is also readily identified by his receding hairline and flat-footed duck walk. As a true friend he is uncomparable. In fact, even when bricked on blind dates by his friends, he continues to wear an innocent and loving smile — until after the hop! In the way of sports AI specializes in blistering his hands on the gymnasium parallel bars, or on nicer afternoons, he is seen waddling around the tennis courts. In all seriousness, AI is picked by his friends to lead his class in accomplishments and goals no matter what field he enters. JAMES ROBERT KOEHN Buffalo, New York " Diamond Jim, " always the soft spoken plebe indoctrination engi- neer, was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, and moved to Buffalo, New York. His Naval career began on July 7, 1959, after his graduation from high school. Active in cross-country and golf while at the Academy, Jim worked on the Christmas Card Committee, and played lightweight football. Choos- ing navy blue for future service, Jim would like to wear the golden dolphins. He has been an efficient midshipman and has shown the poten- tial for a fruitful career in the silent service. EUGENE GERARD KREINIK New York, New York Two weeks after graduation from Bishop DuBois High School in New York City, Jerry became an official member of the Brigade. He was an avid sports fan with an interest in almost all of the sports offered at the Academy. His participation in brigade boxing plus numerous intra- mural teams attests to this fact. Academically, Jerry was constantly in the upper portion of his class. He was on and off the Superintendent ' s List, and he concentrated his main interests into French. Although his plans are not definite, he will be found either in Naval Aviation or Navy line. 264 Class of 1 963 ROBERT EDWARD LaGASSA Utica, Michigan Robert Edward LaGassa came to the Naval Academy from Cass Tech in Detroit, Michigan, where he majored in obscurity. At the Acad- emy Bob changed his name to " Guinea " and at the same time changed his major to " stardom. " There were many times during his four years when the wee hours would find Bob and his flashlight working on his major. You had to work overtime to find Bob at home because his call to duty ranged through Catholic Choir, Glee Club, and the Brigade Activities Committee, to a few extra duties helping his fellow classmates keep their heads above the academic flood. Weekends usually found Bob dragging or bemoaning the stinginess of the U. S. Treasury and his lack of drag funds. Bob looks forward to a career in either Nuclear Power or Naval Aviation. He ' s given up his major in obscurity. HOWARD FRANCIS LANGLEY, JR. Hyattsville, Maryland After four years at Gonzaga High School, Sonny attended ' , Mont- gomery Jr. College for a year where he majored in parties and minored in football and basketball. His antics at Montgomery Jr. College having reached legendary proportions, the " Lang " ventured to the Academy where he decided he would spend more time on football and basketball and slack off a little on the social side. He could, however, be seen on most weekends sporting a cute drag around the Academy. A traveling man by nature. Sonny spent much of his summer leave periods touring the States and Europe, where he picked up his nickname " The Prince, " which was to spread throughout the feminine circles of Annapolis. His four years have added much color to the routine and regimented atmosphere of the Academy and after graduation, the " Golden Tongue " will be greatly missed. JOHN ELIAS LESKO San Diego, California John, a Marine junior, was born in Quantico, Virginia, but con- siders California his home. Before entering the Academy, John attended the Boyden School in San Diego. Besides outdoor activities, he is a real addict of photography, always willing to exhibit his slides to the unwary. Academics have always been an integral part of John ' s life here at USNA, with the English Department offering him an exceptional challenge. When the academic day is over, he is usually found in the ring at Mac- Donough Hall getting a lesson from a Brigade boxer. Weekends usually find John eagerly escorting a femme around the Yard. Upon graduation he may have enough seniority accumulated to become an " official " guide. However, these weekend activities are often curtailed. John never seems to get enough sleep. The Marine Corps or Naval Aviation are John ' s service choices. We wish him smooth sailing. He ' ll be a welcome addi- tion to the Fleet. First Battalion 265 ROBERT DOUGLAS LITTLE Charlotte, North Carolina Bob is a " rebel " from Charlotte, North Carolina. Known to some of us as " Douglas, " his favorite pastime is ocean sailing. He was a sailor from plebe year and participated in all the major races in which the Naval Academy partigpated. The Electrical Engineering department never gave him any trouble, but the Forei gn Languages and English departments posed great obstacles. Bob ' s affinity for Officers of the Watch was unbelievable; he had more demerits and hours of extra duty from watch squad than any man living or dead. Bob is friendly and has a lot of motivation for the service. We are all sure that Bob is going to do just as fine a job in the fleet as he has done here at the United States Naval Academy. LEE HALTOM LIVINGSTON Memphis, Tennesseee Born in Memphis, Lee came to USNA via Naps after spending two years as a white hat in various Navy schools such as ET and Sub schools. He was almost always on the Supe ' s List, and also wearing stars. In ad- dition to his academic abilities, Lee was a varsity fencer and a member of the Antiphonal Choir. Lee ' s many overload courses in his major field of Nuclear Physics, eminently qualify him for nuclear subs into which he hopes to go. Lee ' s dry sense of humor and devil-may-care attitude have brought him the deep friendship and respect of anyone who has ever dealt with him. Lee will be a great asset to the Navy and America as a whole and will excel in his chosen field. JAMES FRANCIS LLOYD, JR. Paulsboro, New Jersey Jim, who hails from Paulsboro, New Jersey, came to the Naval Academy after spending one year at Columbian Prep. Jim ' s tranquil and quiet personality added a much needed stabilizing effect to the " cave, " as his room was often described by the Executive Department. Academics caused Jim very little trouble in his four years at the Academy. In fact Jim could often be found explaining the day ' s lesson to one of his room- mates. Jim leaned toward the scientific portion of the curriculum. His high grades and high class standing in this field are evidence of his bright mind and hard work. In the afternoons, Jim ' s strong affinity for contact sports moved him to play company fieldball and lacrosse where he special- ized on defense in both sports. Jim ' s friendly disposition and sense of fair play won many friends for him throughout the Brigade. No matter what branch of the service he chooses, Jim will prove to be an invaluable asset. 266 Class of 1 963 CHARLES EDWARD LUETH Evanston, Illinois Charlie graduated from Evanston Township High School where he won Ail-American honors his senior year in swimming. From there he went south to Georgia Tech on a NROTC scholarship. After a year of Southern hospitality and mechanical engineering, he came to the Academy. After a fruitful Youngster year in sports, Charlie sewed on a swimming " N-Star " and tacked up a NCAA certificate. On the outside, Charlie spent most of his time traveling around the world. When he wasn ' t traveling, he spent his leisure time at home or out in the fields hunting. Charlie was known to drag but most of his time was spent trying to guess the coming of the next purge and the material on the next quiz. DONALD CLAY MacLAUGHLIN Baltimore, Maryland Don entered the Naval Academy shortly after graduating from CantonsviUe High School in Baltimore, Maryland. Mac, as his classmates call him, has always stood in the upper fourth of his class and has been seen many times taking a long Superintendent ' s List weekend. Not all of his time was taken up with academics, however. He was also an outstand- ing athlete. He excelled in both soccer and lacrosse. He was captain of both these teams his plebe year. He went on to get his " N " in both his youngster year. Since he is a Maryland native, Don used all the facilities of his nearby home in Baltimore. If Don continues to use his outstanding ability to learn and advance as he has the past four years, he is sure to do nothing but better the service for us. LYNN JAY MADISON Spokane, Washington Jay joined the ranks of the Navy after a year at the University of Oregon and widespread exposure to the women of the West Coast. Hailing from Spokane, Washington, Jay has always excelled at football and boxing. The fact that he carries a solid right can easily be verified by his many boxing achievements. His football career at Navy was curtailed after a year of plebe football by a knee injury, but he has continued boxing and rather unevenly divides his spare time between tennis, squash, and sleeping. Of course, he has extended his territory of conquest of the weaker sex to t he East and Gulf coasts with a few in between. A reliable friend of many and respected enemy of few. Jay is sure to succeed no matter what road he chooses to follow. First Battalion 267 WILLIAM STANLEY MARSHALL, III Philadelphia, Petmsyliania Philadelphia can proudly claim Bill as a valuable contribution to the Naval Service. Prior to entering the Academy, Bill attended Drexel Institute of Technology and served with the U. S. Marine Corps during the Lebanon Crisis. Energetic and hard working, Bill is well-liked by his classmates throughout the Brigade. A thorough-going extrovert, he applied his organizational talent and energy very constructively to such extracur- ricular activities as Radio Station WRNV, the Antiphonal Choir, and the Naval Academy Christian Association. Bill ' s athletic skill was evidenced by his one year tenure with the plebe fencing team. And although swim- ming was not his forte, he loved the water enough to be a member of a Brigade Champion Knockabout Team. His opinions and judgment were sought after constantly, and he was never too busy to offer a word of en- couragement or sound advice to his many friends. No matter what field he enters. Bill ' s leadership capabilities, winning smile, and maturity will enable him to rise to the top. DONALD WAYNE MATHIS Fort Worth, Texas Watch what you say about Texas when Don is around ! Always ready to back up the Lone Star State at any time of the day or night, Don has carried this enthusiasm into everything that he has attempted. He has worked diligently as a member of the Log and Splinter staffs, as a varsity basketball manager, and has played hard for his company ' s intra- mural teams. His other activities included the Chess Club and the Naval Academy Christian Association. The past four years have shown that Don is a good man to have around, and his prospects of success in any service are very bright. JOHN WILLIAM MATTON Andover, Massachusetts Jack came to Severn ' s shores from Phillips Andover Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. The Navy was a radical change from puritanical New England, but Jack matured and blossomed into an all-around credit to the Brigade. He led the company basketball and volleyball squads in the winter and spring seasons. During the fall. Jack was seen hustling for a berth on the varsity soccer team. He had time to have many extra sessions to bring his clas.smates through the academic mire and still maintain over a 3.6 average. He has acquired the taste for a good party and can often be found with a young femme on his arm. Jack has gained the respect and friendship of his classmates, while becoming a mature leader, and he has given the nod to nuclear power school and submarines for his career. 268 Class of 1 963 MICHAEL EVERETT MAYS Pullman, Washington Who else but a Navy junior could have lived in Arlington, Vir- ginia, Paris, Panama, and now, Pullman, Washington? Before coming to the Academy, Mick spent a year at Washington State University in Pull- man. His athletic interests lie mainly in golf, and he was a member of the plebe team. As a knockabout sailor Mick has the distinction of being one of the few men who has ever managed to tip over a knockabout. Second Class summer convinced Mick that Navy Air would be his career choice if he can meet the necessary requirements. If success at the Academy is any indication, Mick will someday go to the top in the fleet. DONALD LEE McALISTER Bonham, Texas After a year at the University of Texas, Don packed up his talents and headed for USNA, and when talents are spoken of, he brought a trunkload with him. After a high school career of band, Don broke into the Midshipmen ' s Concert Band as a youngster with little trouble. His cornet might not match Maynard Ferguson ' s, but it ' s as nice as has been heard around here for quite a while. His baritone voice can be heard blending beautifully with the rest of the Chapel Choir during the Chapel services each Sunday. Added to these outstanding contributions, Don re- ceives his reward as he sings in the Glee Club and really treasured those trips to New York, Atlantic City and Penn Hall. Science Fiction might be Don ' s most outstanding academic subject, but his value to the Brigade must be counted in hours of musical enjoyment. JOHN SHERRICK McCABE Vark Forest, Illinois From the Chicago suburb of Park Forest, John came to the Naval Academy directly out of high school. Finding Plebe linemen rather mas- sive, he switched to one hundred fifty pound football, which he enjoyed on both a varsity and company level. Acquiring a guitar to help out on Plebe happy hours, " Maccabbee " plunked away study hours for the next three years, to the general annoyance of his roommates. Also active in Chapel Choir and Glee Club, he managed to find enough time to keep the academic board away from his door without hindering his dragging. The Navy will have a fine officer in John. First Battalion 269 DONALD LEE McCRORY Robinson, Illinois Even those who know him well may forget the extra " n " in his name, but Donn as a person will always be remembered. He will probably be remembered for his friendly personality, and his awesome ability to cr owd many things into a tight schedule and still come out ahead. Before Donn came to the Academy, he attended the University of Illinois. Donn ' s major at the University, music, was his major extracurricular activity at the Academy. He was a member of the Glee Club and the Chapel Choir. He was also a member of the Academy ' s swinging group known as the Spiffys. Donn ' s other activities are too numerous to mention, but with the spirit with which he enters into anything, plus his talent for making friends, Donn will go a long way. JOHN EDWARD McDERMOTT Sherman Oaks, California The " old man " entered the Brigade from the Naval Preparatory School after one year at Los Angeles ' Valley Junior College and two years of service in the fleet as an electronics technician. Mac ' s college back- ground allowed him to take advantage of the validation program via the EH G Department. Most of the Brigade knows him as one of the DJ ' s down at WRNV and from his performances with the Masqueraders. Plebe year he fired on the front line with the Pistol Team, and since has served on the Brigade Hop Committee and the Ring Dance Committee. Mac is known as a man who is willing to gamble. He has a finger in every available pie, but when things don ' t go right he can roll with the punches and always comes up smiling. DAVID MICHAEL McLEAN Anaconda, Montana Dave McLean, " Mack, the Knife " or " Tiger, " to his friends, came to the Academy from Anaconda, Montana. In 1958 he graduated from Anaconda Central High School where he was active in a number of school activities. After a year at Carroll College in Helena, Montana, Mac ' s course steered straight and true to the Naval Academy. While at the Academy, Dave was active in the Newman Club, Portuguese Club, t he Reception Committee, and was a " Lucky Bug " representative. Although sidetracked from his hobbies by the ever presence of girls, hunting and fishing still remain his number one hobbies. Physically small, Dave was a crew coxswain his Plebe year, and thereafter stunned company opponents with his versatility in volleyball, football, and baseball. He plans a Naval Aviation career and then a quiet retirement on the banks of Georgetown Lake. 270 Class of 1 963 JAMES ASHFORD METCALFE Annapolis, Maryland Attired in his madras sports jacket with a pipe clenched between his teeth, Metcalfe entered Bancroft as any typical hmey would enter a pub on a Saturday afternoon. He soon settled down to the Navy routine and acquired the name, " Troll. " With him he brought all of those outstanding qualities which that great military institute. Culver, had instilled in him. Jim is not only an excellent wrestler but also quite adept at any sport that exists. Even though he excelled at the study which he believed most advantageous to his future career, steam, none of his other subjects were left to falter. He was an honor student and a member of the honor com- mittee. His membership in the gun club indicated his keen interest in the arts of a professional Navy man. It can be sincerely stated that Jim hasn ' t an enemy in the world. His keen wit, manners, and intelligence have made him everybody ' s friend. His future will be bright. THOMAS EUGENE MEYER Palatine, Illinois The " Star man " from the suburbs of Chicago chose the Naval Academy over the glitter of fraternity parties in the Ivy League. His outstanding achievements at Palatine High School carried over to USNA and four years here witness to his intelligence and serious-mindedness. An overload student, Tom is concentrating his efforts for the future in the field of Nuclear Physics and is particularly interested in submarines. Youngster year saw Tom come into his own as far as the women were concerned. Poised and self-confident, he was rarely without female com- panionship from then ■ on. Time will prove the medium for measuring his success in the Naval Service. RICHARD JEFFREY MILES Moraga, California Jeff came to us directly from Oakland Technical High School. His previous athletic interest dominated his extracurricular activities at the Academy in the form of Plebe and varsity wrestling in the 123 pound weight class. Since he was small, Jeff was the recipient of many ribbings, all of which he took in stride. Jeff ' s temper showed only during an athletic contest or a study hour. If he made a slip in a sporting event and lost his temper, it was often unfortunate for his opponent. During a study hour, many times screams, yelps, and poundings could be heard coming from Jeff ' s room, and when investigated, Jeff would be found fuming at his desk, waving his slide rule, and mumbling something like " 6 times 2 is 12, not 8; 6 times 2 is 12, not 8; . . . " Then the mystery of all the commotion would be solved. Everyone would know that Jeff had just spent an hour trying to solve a problem and had found his mistake. First Battalion 271 JAMES HAROLD NEWELL, JR. Norfolk, Virginia Jim Newell ' s many interests and wandering Navy family have led him on travels from Japan to our East Coast. Jim came to us from New York City where he chose the Academy from the midst of numerous scholarships. He continued his mastery of the books here and still found plenty of time to pursue his more favored subjects: sports, bridge, over- loads, and girls. Second class year found Newt emerging from the piano keyboard in the art of rock and roll music with the Spiffys. This was quite a change from the classics, which was all he had previously played. On one of those rare weekends when he wasn ' t dragging he could be found in the midst of a hot game of basketball or touch football or then again maybe at the Memorial Hall piano with Chopin or one of his own creations. His high-riding spirit never ceased to make the day more interesting and put our parties in a panic. He is one person who would be hard to forget. JOHN HARLAN NEWSOM Anchorage, Alaska With a hearty " mush, " John began his trek to the Naval Academy from that world renowned, cosmopolitan center of Big Delta, Alaska. Not being strong academically, his path was not a direct one, as he has matricu- lated at Columbian Prep, Olympic Junior College, and t he University of Washington. John was at the latter for three years, where, among other things, he was in NROTC and was varsity football manager. With a quick change of allegiance from purple and gold to the mightier blue and gold, he paddled his kayak up the Severn, thus crippling Washington ' s Rose Bowl team, as evidenced in the Huskies 15-14 defeat. While at the Academy, News contributed a great deal by devoting himself to his old love, football managing, and the rest of his time was spent in PT over- loads and in devising ways of keeping his totem pole from Company officers. With John ' s motivation for the service, even though the Navy has no whalers in the Bering Sea, we know that he will manage well. ROBERT CHESTER NEWTON Baltimore, Maryland Robbie is probably one of the most ersatile athletes that has gone through the Naval Academy. He was a standout in boxing, football, and track. One thing that Robbie has that exceeds his athletic ability is the ability to make friends. He was one of the most popular men in the brigade. This ability also provided him with quite a large date book. The only thing that gave him much trouble during the four years were the academics. Robbie solved this problem with a lot of hard work. Hard work is typical in anything he does, that is why failure is something he seldom experiences. For this reason, Robbie will do well in anything he undertakes, and undoubtedly will be a fine officer. 272 Class of 1963 ROBERT JEFFREY NISS Eastchester, New York Jeff came to the Academy immediately upon graduatioii from East- chester High School. Never one to be particularly troubled with aca- demics, afternoons would find him sparking company soccer and champion- ship Softball teams. Energetic and enthusiastic, Jeff could always be counted on to add life to an evening study hour or a post-football game party at the Sheraton in Philadelphia. He enjoyed listening to good music and enjoyed dragging on weekends even more. His desire for a sports car upon graduation was the cause of many hours of studying the stock market. Always willing to give someone a helping hand, Jeff ' s desire and cheerful disposition will certainly insure his success as a Naval Officer. RICHARD LEVERNE NUTT Clemson, South Carolina Shortly after graduating high in his class at Daniel High School in Clemson, South Carolina, Rich began a highly successful four years at the Naval Academy. He has stood consistently very high in his class and his uniform has been decorated with stars. However, his time was not entirely consumed by academics. He has been active in the Antiphonal Choir and varsity sports. Rich participates in varsity sports all three sea- sons of the year. These sports are soccer and track. As a pole-vaulter Rich lettered as a youngster and continued to be a vital member of the team. Known for his easygoing manner and southern drawl, he was a favorite with his classmates. With all his ability and personality, he will enjoy a full life in the naval service. WILLIAM JOSEPH OPITZ Missoula, Montana " Pitz " , as he is known to his friends, hails from Missoula, Mon- tana, where he graduated from Loyola High School in 1959. During his senior year In high school. Bill was elected All-State in football and bas- ketball. In the fall of 1959 Bill entered the Naval Academy and began his life as a midshipman. Early in Plebe year he began to miss the hunting and fishing that were his principal hobbies in Montana. As the years wore on. Bill was found actively engaged in the Newman Club, the Reception Committee, and the Portuguese Club. Sportswise he loves basketball and played for the Plebe team before he was medically disabled. The remain- der of the years Bill could be found leading the Company volleyball and Softball teams to victory. After graduation he hopes to win his dolphins and see the world. Eventually he plans to settle down and raise a family. Whatever Bill does, we know that he will be a success and a credit to the Navy. First Battalion 273 WINTHROP BELCHER ORGERA Rye Beach, New Hampshire After attending Andover Prep for his pre-coUege education, Win decided he needed some southern sunshine to thaw out from the cold New England winters. At the University of Florida, he not only found the sunshine, but also the Kappa Sigma House with its many social benefits. A year of heavy partying in the South convinced Win that he should enter the Academy, where for the past four years he has placed studying on an equal level with his social life. Win ' s outgoing personality and straight forwardness have resulted in many friendships, particularly among his class- mates, who know him as " Orgy " . In the fall Win can be found on the gridiron with the rest of the big Blue Team and many a dismayed halfback has been the target of a vicious " Orgy " tackle. During his free time in the spring. Win could usually be found on the Academy golf course, polishing his fine game. Upon graduation, the Naval Service will undoubtably find good use for his leadership qualities. BIRNEY TERRENCE PEASE Burlington, Vermont Birney came to the Academy after two years at the University of Vermont. He managed to miss almost all the Parades by being on the sailing team. A Green Mountain Boy, he organized the elite " Bridge Club " and was known on occasion to be found contemplating the problems of the world in his room. While his classmates were busy flying at Pensacola, Birney found time to learn the art of driving a line tractor. On various occasions he was known to give an impromptu lecture in the absence of an instructor. Birney ' s favorite pastime next to smoking his pipe is listening to Glenn Miller records which drove his roommates crazy. Gus, as his friends call him, always managed to return from leave about twenty pounds heavier than when he left, and with this particular attribute he intends to enjoy life. JAMES NORMAN PENROD Barre, Vermont Jim ventured forth to USNA, golf clubs over his shoulder, from the Green Mountains of Barre, Vermont. Taking Plebe year in stride, if it is possible, Jimbo could always be found pursuing a new activity. This boundless energy still largely untapped, he continued to cram the day to the limit, whether it be the golf links, academics, Drum and Bugle Corps, Chess Club, or the weekend brick. Upon leaving the friendly confines of USNA for that annual cruise or occasional trip, Jim was famous for his unusual escapades, and in the four years with Navy has cut a wide swath along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. From Montreal to Bermuda, or Ber- muda to New Orleans, our classmate has left us many sparkling memories of liberty well spent. Regardless of the path chosen from USNA, Jim will provide those around him with a true friend. 274 Class of 1 963 I MICHAEL ANDREW PERO, JR. Somerville, New Jersey Mike was exposed to navy blue uniforms and academy type life earlier than most of us when he entered Admiral Farragut Academy in 1955. After four years Mike moved to the banks of the Severn. No sooner had he finished stenciling his white works than he took off for Hubbard Hall, the Navy boathouse, to try his hand at crew. Since then he has spent most of his afternoons in a crew shell. Although never having rowed be- fore coming to the Academy, Mike was one of the plebe oarsmen who spent June of I960 winning the Nationals and placing high in the Olympic Trials. But Mike ' s efforts have not been confined to rowing, for he kept well above average in academics while participating in such extracurricular activities as the Antiphonal Choir, Foreign Relations Club, and the Con- cert Band. Mike ' s only problem in this respect was to find time in his busy schedule for the many weekends that he planned. Whatever branch of the Navy he chooses, Mike ' s ability to make friends and his sincerity will insure his success. JOHN JACOB PFEIFFER College Point, New York After Bishop Loughlin High School and two years at New York State Maritime College, " Pfife " shifted himself to the role of a midship- man. Starting off again, with another plebe year, he kept things moving with Plebe swimming, Catholic Choir, and a spot on the Brigade Cham- pionship water polo team. To put College Point on the map, John joined the Log staff where his layout work has been impressive. Varsity swim- ming and water polo have kept him busy sportswise during his upperclass years. John came to the Naval Academy with a dedication to the service of his country. He is a perfectionist in all things and will do his best in all his endeavors. He is known as a man about town and is never one to stay put on a Saturday night. John will settle for nothing less than the unattainable and will be among the leaders in the Naval Service. WALTER CORIA PIERCE Devon, Pennsylvania While attending Conestoga Senior High School in Berwyn, Pennsyl- vania, Walt was a highly successful student-athlete. He carried his aca- demic and athletic abilities with him when he reported to the Academy, and his four successful years on the Severn testify to the fact that he has con- tinued to put these abilities into practice. Besides maintaining a Superin- tendent ' s list and star average, Walt played plebe and varsity football. Known for his bull-like appearance and eagerness to go on leave, Walt has made many friends since donning the Navy blue. He has utilized his talents to the best of his ability and will undoubtedly serve his country well in whatever capacity he chooses. First Battalion 275 JOSEPH ROBERT PLEIER Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Born and raised in Philadelphia, Joe entered the Academy via the fleet where he spent two of his most enjoyable years. Always one for having a good time, yet being ready to pitch in when there ' s work to be done, he is especially well liked by his many friends and acquaintances. An ardent member of the sailing squadron and battalion wrestling team, he has also found time to devote many precious minutes to his duties as Log and Splinter representative. Joe hopes to wear the golden wings of Naval Aviation; there is no doubt that Joe will be a welcome and appre- ciated addition to our Navy. ROGER LEE RAHL Mt. Pleasant, Michigan Roger came to the Naval Academy from the water wonderland state of Michigan. During his stay at the Academy he devoted most of his time to catching up on all the sleep he missed during leave. However, he did find time to participate in intramural sports; such as football, soccer, and fieldball. If you caught him awake at other times, he would invariably be spinning sea stories while listening to his favorite records. Although " Rog " was not noted for his academic prowess, through hard work he was able to achieve his big goal at the end of his four year stay at USNA, that of becoming a member of the Alumni Association. DAVID BROOKS ROBINSON Denton, Texas Because of his strikingly ready humor and friendly manner, Dave was christened with the apt nickname, " Snuffy, " right from the beginning of plebe year. Hailing from Denton, Texas, there remained no doubt in our minds as to " Snuff ' s " home state. Navy offered him his second plebe year, his first received at Texas A M with a degree of justified pride. With his personality and working ways he proved a fine member of the reception committee, BAC, and Lucky Bai Advertising staff. He worked hard at academics, but seldom let them interfere with a good book. After a two-year bout with the language department, " Snuff " finally convinced the profs that German could be spoken with a Texas accent. His athletic service was rendered to battalion boxing and company 150-lb. football and Softball. With his sights set en Navy Air, " Snuf f " will become a fine officer in any man ' s squadron. 276 Class of 1 963 THOMAS JAMES ROSSA West Allis, Wisconsin Tom entered the Naval Academy immediately after graduation from Marquette University High School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After plebe summer was completed, Tom, 25 pounds lighter and much wiser in the ways of the Academy, realized this was the place to spend his next four years. Tom had little difficulty in keeping most of his marks above 3.0. He soon became recognized as an excellent German student, and by virtue of the overload program, Tom is looking forward to a major from the Foreign Languages Department upon graduation. In addition to his tight academic schedule, Tom still found time to play clarinet in the Midship- men ' s Concert Band, freeload at some of the German Club Banquets, and row on the plebe light-weight crew team. Tom ' s cheerful outlook on life will serve him well after graduation as he carries on the Blue and Gold tradition of the Academy to the fleet. PAUL SAACKE Rockville Centre, New York Paul, bringing with him the strength, the fleet feet, and the stamina of a basketball player, soon fitted into his corner of the local picture at USNA. After playing soccer in the fall, company basketball in the winter, and soccer again in the spring of Plebe year, he found himself ready to go on Youngster cruise. Then came Youngster year with the same round of athletics repeating itself, and Paul began to study. His grades became so good he was almost declared an outcast by his room- mates. Second Class summer came, and he discovered girls. In the fall of Second Class year he finally made varsity soccer, and then settled down to the restful life of a Second Class; restful, that is, except for studies. Dur- ing his stay here Paul was mostly noted for his height, his sharp wit, and his athletic prowess. He is surely destined to become a dedicated officer. GERALD WILLIAM SABER San Francisco, California O ' le Jer comes from the land of Golden Bridges, baseball, and water skiing. Always looking for an unusual picture, he may often be seen taking numerous pictures with his trusty camera or dragging one of his bevy of " la femmes. " Being one for physical fitness and a fish at heart, Jer may usually be found over at the pool in the afternoon. Spurred to navy life through his NAVCAD brother, he decided to get in the best way via USNA. Besides, in the navy one can keep a girl in every port and stay out of trouble — at least that ' s what he thought. Navy Line looks mighty fine to Jer, and a fine salt he ' ll be too. First Battalion 277 HARRY PAUL SALMON, JR. Pitman, New Jersey Harry, known as " Chub " by most of his classmates, hails from the small town of Pitman, New Jersey. Chub came directly from high school and soon proved to be one of the top men academically in his class, acquir- ing stars by the end of youngster year. Besides being somewhat of a slash. Chub was also a good athlete. He contributed his service to the championship battalion team two years in a row. His talent later gained him a berth on the 150 pound football team. Chub ' s quiet, friendly, and moderately serious manner made him a hit with his classmates. His many qualities assure him of being a very fine Naval officer. KENNETH TISDALE SANGER Seattle, Washington After a year at Severn Prep Ken came to USNA to launch his naval career, and a running battle against the " skinny " department. He could usually be found expounding the glories of Seattle, Washington, to a classmate and, being a lover of the first degree, weekends frequently saw him entertaining his favorite girl. Another of Ken ' s interests was the out- doors where he spent most of his vacations hunting or fishing. He excelled in various sports and was a tiger on the lacrosse field. Ken ' s likable ways punctuated by his philosophies and remarks that broke up the party will long be remembered by his classmates. He was probably t he only plebe to go through plebe year without saying, " I ' ll find out, sir. " Right or wrong, he always had an answer. With his ability and drive a future of success is sure to follow. RONALD MITCHELL SAQUI Pitman, New Jersey Ron came to the Academy from the teeming metropolis of Pitman, New Jersey, and is proud of it. A natural athlete with a penetrating will- to-win, he has always been a leader in intramural sports, be it football, basketball, cross-country, or pool. In addition, Ron is a sports afficion ' ado in every sense of the word, always more than willing to spend his liberty time watching a good solid sports contest and able to recite without any hesitation any sports fact. " Squee " was always way ahead of the game in academics, having little trouble remaining a star man and apparently de- riving a great deal of pleasure cramming every available space in his academic program with overload courses. With his carefree nature and his easily provoked laugh, this yankee lad should prove a most valuable asset to the Navy and to the country in whatever endeavors he undertakes. 278 Class of 1963 FERDINAND MICHAEL SCHERY Yonkers, New York Mike comes to us from Yonkers, New York. He received his sec- ondary education at Cardinal Hayes High School, Bronx, New York, where he was editor of his school newspaper. At the Academy, Mike has participated enthusiastically in intramural athletics. After concentrating on lightweight crew for his first two years, he turned his efforts to soccer, 150 pound football, and softball. Mike is addicted to Johnny Mathis and Frank Sinatra, famous for plebe tea fights, and restricted in his dating. Mike ' s career aspirations range from the lowest to the highest. Although the submarine service has long occupied his interest. Aviation Summer brought wings into contention with dolphins. JOSEPH DANIEL SHARPE, JR. Charleston, South Carolina Being the son of a retired marine, Joe was already accustomed to military life. Consequently, he did not have much trouble in getting into the swing of Naval Academy life. Joe always put a great deal of effort into academics, because he felt that a good education was the most im- portant prerequisite of a good Naval Officer. He was a faithful member of the Reception Committee, and a well-established critic of the Saturday night flick. Joe had the knack of turning on his Southern gentleman charm, so that he was rarely lacking feminine companionship. When not sleeping, dragging, or going to the flick, he did manage to squeeze a few company and battalion sports into his schedule. Joe ' s relaxed outlook will certainly insure him success in his service career. GARY EDWARD SHAY Morgantown, West Virginia Gary came to us from the hills of West Virginia via the Navy where he was an aviation electrician. While at the Academy, he played battalion football until he had some bad luck with his arm. Since then he has spent some time in the hospital. Gary is one of the few midship- men who has majored in dragging his fiancee the entire time he was here. He became engaged just prior to his entrance to the Academy. Gary like many of his classmates has fought through that almost impenetrable sub- ject, science. He carries the rather obvious nickname of " Red " due to his tint of hair. He is easy-going, even though the fourth class doesn ' t think so, and a great guy to know. Gary always has a cheerful word and a ready come-back, when necessary. Gary is one of those persons who wants to defy the laws of gravity and go Navy Air. The Fleet Air Wing will get a willing worker and ready wit from Gary. First Battalion 279 JOHN WILFRED SHEEHAN, JR. Pomona, California Bill is more affectionately known as " Punchy " from his inimitable bounce and verve. The bounce carried him well both in fencing and in managing fencing and lacrosse. So well that he has a reputation as a per- petual manager. The verve kept him busy with the Foreign Relations Club and as a guiding light in the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference, which he helped to found. Bill came to the Naval Academy straight out of the Boy Scouts of Pomona Catholic High School. Pomona is a suburb of Los Angeles, whose virtues he ne jr ceases to extol. A diligent student with above average grades, Punchy, instead of wasting his week-ends in a drag house, put them to good use reporting on sporting events for the Log. There was a precedent of some sort set when Bill graduated. He is one of the few people in the country holding a Bachelor of Science degree with his major in social studies. MICHAEL HAWKINS SHELLEY Greenville, South Carolina Mike came to the Academy upon graduation from high school. While there he pursued music as his main extra-curricular interest, being the drum major of the marching band. He brought with him this interest in music and has participated in Musical Clubs presentations as well as the Midshipman Concert Band. Mike has developed an interest in sailing and has been a member of the ocean sailing squadron. He participated in various intramural sports on the company level, such as cross-country and soccer. Mike had a better-than-average academic career here on the banks of the Severn. He particularly enjoys foreign languages, in which he stood near the top of his class, and professional subjects. Concerning his plans for the future, he is primarily interested in Naval Aviation, and is planning to make his career in the naval service. JAMES MALCOLM SHULL, JR. Elizabethton, Tennessee Jim Shull came to the Academy from Elizabethton, Tennessee. Before coming to the Academy, he first spent a year at Carson-Newman College in Tennessee and was on the Dean ' s List. Once at the Academy, Jim applied himself to everything with a diligence and thoroughness that was to be his hallmark. He engaged in many activities while at the Acad- emy, chief among them being the Naval Academy Christian Association and the Officer ' s Christian Union. He also devoted much of his time and services to his church in town. A big asset to the company sports squads, Jim was an active and hard working participant during his stay. Jim en- joyed his cruise following Plebe year and plans to go Navy line. Navy ' s investment will be well rewarded when he joins the fleet. 280 Class of 1963 DAVID CLARK SHUTE Swarthmore, Pennsylvania Dave came to Annapolis bringing with him a family line of Navy men. He entered plebe year with great enthusiasm which is still with him. This trait, plus his ability to make and keep friends, his humor, and his capacity for academics, has launched him on the way to a fine Navy career. Dave put his all into athletics and academics, including his running battle with the Bull Department, but he clung to the old adage about that " dull boy. Jack. " Consequently, hardly a weekend slipped by, that Dave could not be found with a certain member of the opposite sex. Never a follower, always a leader, Dave has contributed much to the Brigade and is sure to carry on with his fine work and continue to be a credit to the Academy as an officer in the Navy. FORREST NILE SIBURT, JR. Washington, Pennsylvania Sy dribbled his way to the Naval Academy hardwood from the metropolis of Washington, Pennsylvania, taking time out for a tour of the Naval Academy Preparatory School. In his four years, Sy has concen- trated his efforts in athletic abilities on company cross-country and Softball in the fall and spring. But the winter season brought out his true love, as he sparked the plebe basketball team with his hustle and drive and moved on to varsity blue and gold to leave many an opponent flat-footed as he drove for two. He has an extensive collection of " rock and roll " which can be heard through the halls of Bancroft. Sy has never had an easy time with studies, but his perseverance has paid off. Known affectionately as the " Military Midget " , Sy has set an example of frankness and sincerity which will carry him through the many adventures in store for him. His satirical wit has won many friends who wish him success in his military career. DEREK J. SIMMONS Sylmar, California Derek, motivated by his great sense of patriotism and a thirst for mental enlightenment, came to us from Sylmar, California, where he some- times successfully pursued studies in very liberal arts at such noted institu- tions as San Fernando High, University of California, and Valley Junior College. He first gained prominence among his classmates by establishing somewhat of a record. He was the first man in the class to earn a Navy " N " , and he earned it well, as he literally ran through Plebe year — every morning. It has been said of him, since then, that he is a man well re- membered for his temperance. Though possibly not the funniest man in the class, his subtle humor and quick wit has, on many occasions, helped lift our morale when the spirits were lacking. This quality, combined with his natural friendliness and clear-sightedness, has made him a spokesman for many of us and a friend of all. Like many of us, he has been won over by the wiles of Naval Aviation. Good luck, Derek. First Battalion 281 LOUIS LEROY SIMPLEMAN Trinidad, Colorado Lou came to the Academy from Holy Trinity High School in Trin- idad, Colorado. He brought with him a talent with the trumpet, athletic ability, and a friendly smile. The musical talent quickly gained him a position in the Drum and Bugle Corps. The Corps and the choir used up most of his time until second class year. Lou left the D B Corps to play 150 pound football and won a spot on the varsity. He has never lost his smile but it hides a great competitive spirit and desire to excel. When not engaged in a scheduled activity, Lou is often found listening to good music or talking to other men from Colorado trying to find a free hop home for his next leave. Such a versatile and personable fellow will be a real asset to the military service. JAMES ARNER SMALL Rochester, New York Jim Small, though having lived in Iowa, Tennessee, California and New York, claims Rochester, New York, as his hometown, and just about every leave period would find him on his way to Rochester. Joining the Navy right after high school and desiring to further himself, he went to F.T. school and made the grade before coming to the Academy. Jim was an active participant in battalion and company sports, wrestling and company football being his best fields. One of his main interests was cars, and he was always amazing his classmates with his keen ear for identifying the make of an engine by sound alone. This, coupled with a cautious driving attitude, made him quite a wise driver. Another interest of Jim ' s was electronics, which helped him weather the second class science course without much mishap. Jim is a credit to the Naval Academy and will be a big credit to the military service. We should hear a lot about Jim in the years to come. f • r " - K [ 1 J • LLOYD RICHARD SMITH, JR. Des Moines, Iowa After a year of pre-engineering In the Hawkeye State, Lloyd de- cided that he would be the first in a long line of sea-faring Smiths. With his wide variety of experiences, a strong liking for politics, and many good-byes, Smitty made his way to the Severn where the determination to improve was certainly his most outstanding characteristic. Like the greater majority of us, Lloyd ' s personality and character have their weak points, but unlike that same majority, he has made a continual effort to strengthen the ' weak points and to further develop the already strong points. He has not only attempted to improve himself in the eyes of his classmates, the Brigade of Midshipmen, and his (sigh) feminine companions, but more he has forced himself to show continuous improvement to himself. The Log ' s Circulation Department will verify that he is a hard worker, and he will accomplish much more than men of equal capabilities, who have but average drive and determination. 282 Class of 1 963 RANDALL RUTLEDGE SMITH Colorado Springs, Colorado From the time that he arrived from Colorado, Randy has been making a name for himself here at the Academy. Being a Navy Junior and having lived all over the world, " Railroad " could always be counted on to go anywhere at any time as long as there was a comfortable pad and a good meal at the end of the road. Not too adept with a slipstick. Randy was always a devout worshipper of the " God of 2.5. " This, combined with some hard work and a lot of sweat pulled him through. Besides living in the biggest " frap trap " in the Brigade, affectionately called " the Cave, " he still found time to throw the discus for Navy. If he can find a plane to fit those big feet and long legs, he ' s going Navy Air. STEPHEN EDGAR STEWART Des Moines, Iowa Stu came to USNA via Iowa State University. He was always well liked and used his many talents in a variety of activities. Steve always had big plans and that was why he chose Annapolis. He started off well in Plebe year and has been going strong ever since. He was a slash in aca- demics and had plenty of time for extra things that others found hard to do. His many contributions and competitive spirit have been appreciated on the company, battalion, and Brigade levels. His high standing with the Executive Department placed him in charge of the Plebe Summer de- tail, and his tenor voice put him in the glee club and chapel choir. If he wasn ' t manipulating the slide rule, he could be found writing letters to a blonde, playing the piano, or winning at bridge. Steve was that special touch at any party, and his congeniality placed him in good stead with all. His versatility and many abilities are a good recommendation for any line of service. La Rue, Ohio JAMES ANDREW TATE Andy hails from La Rue, Ohio. He udied engineering at Ohio Northern University for one year and a half before coming to the United States Naval Academy. Since coming here he has established a record worthy of much praise. He played one year on the 150 pound football team, has a good academic record, and has made many good friends. His hobbies are reading and playing basketball, not to mention his avid interest in the opposite sex. During the week you could usually find him at his desk, but on the weekend he was always with a drag. An all-weather friend with a fine character, Andy will certainly make a fine officer. First Battalion 283 ALAN BRUCE TAYLOR Brooklyn, New York Al Taylor, known to his classmates affectionately as " A.B. " , came to the Academy from the Big City. Having attended Brooklyn Technical High School, he was well prepared for an education in the engineering field which he pursued at Brooklyn College, but his love for the water drew him to the Naval Academy after a year. A.B. was a mainstay on the Battalion handball teams as well as bolstering the company softball and cross-country teams to victory more than once. Another great interest of his was swimming, and most of his free time he devoted to this particular sport. A.B. will be long remembered for his extensive collection of 45 RPM records and a fantastic knowledge of the popular music field. Many times these records brought entertainment into the lives of his roommates. A.B. ' s friendly personality has won him many friends, and his winning way with people will serve him well in whatever field he may choose. We are looking forward to see ing him progress in the future. RAYMOND TOUFIC THEEP Sacramento, California Ray considers the variety state of California his home. After grad- uating from Lodi Union High School, he found himself lost in the con- fines of the Naval Academy for four long years. Being a typical Cali- fornian, Ray was always ready to match his state against any other in the Union. His hobbies were many and varied, among them were included sports cars, sailing, athletics, and the happiness of pursuit. However his favorite hobby was running Plebes. Ray has been active in the intramural sports program, being on the Battalion boxing and track squads. Everyone marveled, though, when he made weight for the 127 weight class for Brigade boxing year after year. To avoid the rolling seas, Ray is now aiming to become a Naval Aviator. We wish him many years of happiness and many safe landing s. We know that he will prove to be a credit to the naval service in the future. PAUL EDWARD TOBIN Shaker Heights, Ohio Paul ' s life history sounds like a travelogue. He was born in De- troit, Michigan, attended high school at Bronxville, New York, and Law- renceville, New Jersey, spent a year at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, and his present home is in Shaker Heights, Ohio. On the other hand he doesn ' t move at all on thcsoccer field — that ' s a goalie ' s privilege! With winter Paul shifted to the intramural squash league. In his spare time he pounded a typewriter for the Log and Splinter, welcomed incoming athletes as a member of the Reception Committee, or was likely to be engrossed in a stack of records. Someday he may learn to play the banjo, but we can ' t be so optimistic about his singing. Paul is a student pilot, but admits that he ' d like to confine his flying to the weekends and stationary runways. Upon graduation Paul plans to stay on the sea with submarines or Navy line. 284 Class of 1963 DOUGLAS OWEN TOZOUR Pitman, New Jersey Upon graduation from Pitman High School Doug entered USNA as an aspiring gridiron candidate. But track and field events soon captured his attention and plebe year saw Doug break the plebe record in the javelin. With added weight and strength, he switched to the thirty-five pound weight and hammer. Early indication showed that more records were soon to topple. As a youngster, he won his N-star against Army. Doug ' s drive and determination that second-best is never good enough have kept him on top in most of his efforts. Academics never gave Doug much trouble, which afforded him enough spare time on weekends to spend dragging a beauty from here or there. Always ready for a good time Doug was well- known and liked by his classmates. His ability to realize a goal and strive for success will surely lead to a future of prosperity. ROBERT LAWRENCE VAN NICE, JR. Bethesda, Maryland Bob is best characterized by his friendly smile and easy going man- ner. He has been a mainstay on the volleyball and crew teams, using his long frame (6 ' 3 " ) to great advantage. As far as academics are concerned, Bob ' s forte is in the Foreign Language Department; he speaks fluent French and is Vice-President of the French Club. Coming to the Academy was the fulfillment of a long cherished ambition for Bob, who has wanted to go to sea ever since he was old enough to know what a ship looks like. During his four years here he has earned the respect and sincere friendship of all those who have known him. He w ill be a real credit to himself and to whichever branch of the service he chooses. GEORGE CONRAD VERMEF, JR. Ogden Dunes, Indiana From the sandy shores of Lake Michigan came George, whose love of the sea stemmed from many years of sailing and hydroplane driving on the lake. His easygoing manner and his sharp sense of humor made George well-liked by all. Should the Mid-Store ever close, " The Dealer " could always be depended upon to produce almost any item of merchandise. He was active as an ocean racing skipper and was usually found at the helm among the first yawls to finish in any race. George won his first " N " third class year as a member of the pistol team, and always maintained a respectable grade average. His ability to face any task optimistically and to perform it successfully is well-known by all. A hard working fellow, George will always be a welcome addition to any wardroom wherever he goes in the Fleet. First Battalion 285 JON CHRISTIAN WARN Vallejo, California Following a year of study at the California Maritime Academy, Jon decided to leave the West Coast and his first love, the Maritime Service, in favor of the Naval Academy. Academics did not present any threat to his Naval Career as indicated by his frequent appearance on the Super- intendent ' s list. Jon ' s wit and " Blue and Gold " personality have won him many friends during his four years at the United States Naval Academy. Sailing soon caught Jon ' s interest and he became an integral part of a winning ocean racing crew which participated in the ' 62 Newport-Bermuda Race. The " Warn " walk is sure to bring back memories as Jon is seen bouncing happily about in the future. Jon, a descendant of two genera- tions of submarine builders, is looking forward to conning his boat someday into Mare Island as a member of the silent service. LAWRENCE FRANCIS WARNKEN Queens. New York Larry has lived most of his life in Queens, New York, and at Regis High School Larry stood out as a varsity athlete. His enthusiasm for all sports is well known to his classmates, but basketball has remained his great love. Any weekend when he ' s not dragging and when basketball is in season (nine months of the year for Larry) will find him pounding the backboards. " Lar " is well known also for his vast store of miscellaneous facts. The plebe who could beat him on general knowledge is yet to be found. After a little trouble with Drawing, Larry has stood high in his class and has taken advantage of the overload program to further his talent for foreign languages. The thing which you first notice about him, and which will make Larry stand out all his life, is his love of life. This will take him through the trials of life unscathed. Larry will be a credit to the service, and to the world. PETER DUANE WATERS Cranston, Rhode Island After spending a carefree year at the University of Rhode Island, Pete found plebe year quite different, but he soon adjusted to the military way of life. Since coming to the Academy he hasn ' t been one to spend all his time with the books. Company and battalion sports plus members of the opposite sex have taken a lot of his free time. His ability to get along with people from the first meeting was an asset he used fully on the Re- ception Committee. Aviation summer was so interesting to Pete that he wants Navy Air for a career, and with his keen interest in the subject, he is sure to be a success. 286 Class of 1 963 JAY NOEL WHITING Wausau, Wisconsin Coming from the banks of the grand Wisconsin to those of the Severn, " the pride of Wausau High " brought with him a background of both merit and distinction. In Academy sports, whether on the gridiron, the basketball court, or the cinder track, Jay exhibited a great deal of skill and the will to win. His role as " Turkey Bowl " quarterback that cold November morning will long be remembered by his company classmates. Jay ' s academic achievements were not unimpressive, particularly in his chosen overload, " die deutsche Sprache. " Unskilled on the blue trampo- line, " Jason " frequently resorted to those infamous late, late, late lights as occasion for extra study and outside reading. Jay ' s sincere manner and honest ambition will certainly be of invaluable aid to him as a Naval Officer. RONALD KING WILSON Kokomo, Indiana Although hailing from Missoula, Montana, Arizona occupied a favorite spot in Ron ' s heart. The " Banks of the Wabash " and the harvest moon of his present home, Indiana, run a close second. Ron quickly adapted to the military life and discovered a previously hidden talent for sailing. By the beginning of Third Class year Ron was qualified to com- mand the Naval Academy ' s twenty ton Luder yawls, and by the end of the same year, he had run one aground. After much experimentation with the many sports offered, Ron chose the flying rings in gymnastics, com- peted on the Plebe team as number one man, and went on to the varsity. Second Class aviation summer strengthened his desire to win the wings of a Naval Aviator. We are sure that Ron will present the highest ideals of a Naval officer and continue to uphold the traditions of the Service of which he is a part. PAUL FRANKLIN WOODS Ironton, Ohio Paul came to the banks of the Severn with a wealth of experience and a mature outlook on life. His opinions and judgment were sought after constantly, and Paul was never too busy to offer a word of advice or encouragement to his many friends. Paul was one of those rare people who seem to do everything well. Chosen as a class representative plebe year, Paul continued his extracurricular activities with an active part in Academy musical activities, the Log and Splinter, and the NACA. Paul ' s versatility was readily evidenced by his participation in a myriad of battalion and company sports including Softball, basketball, football, track, fencing, and debate. Academics were never a problem and Paul ' s name was a regular on the Superintendent ' s List. Paul will be remembered by those who knew him as a leader, a student, and a friend. First Battalion 287 PATRICK EMBERSON WRIGHT San Diego, California Pat joined the varsity after a free-and-easy year of NROTC at Oregon State. However even the rigors of plebe year were traversed smoothly due to his great ability to apply himself to hard work. During his upperclass years, he turned this same determination to studying, com- pany sports, and girls. This drive did not affect his mild manner and good naturedness for which he is well known. Pat loves to travel and made trips to Europe during his leaves with a voluntary submarine cruise youngster summer. Having lived in many sections of the United States, Pat has decided and firmly maintains that the West Coast is heaven on earth. Pat ' s capacity for hard work has achieved success for him and we are sure that the future will show the same results. RICHARD HARRINGTON WYTTENBACH Ambler, Pennsylvania Dick started his Naval career with a natural enthusiasm for aca- demics and sailing. His academic interest soon turned to a major in inter- national relations, which will certainly benefit the Navy. His youngster cruise was spent aboard the Coast Guard Academy sailing ship Eagle, the first time that midshipmen were selected for this experience. His love of sailing and travel led to the Newport and Bermuda races, plus several enjoyable European trips during his summer leaves. Tackling every job with a lively interest, " Wit " has always been successful in all his endeavors. His future wife will appreciate as we have his willingness to help and always the constant encouragement. Dick ' s ability at making friends is as well developed as his professional devotion. Navy line will be getting a fine ambitious officer upon his graduation. 288 Class of 1963 SECOND BATTALION 289 CHARLES EDWARD ADAMS Alexandria, Virginia An avid oarsman from pre-Academy days, Chuck devoted a great deal of his spare time to earning a seat in the varsity lightweight shell. During the fall and winter, Chuck bolstered the company intramural sports squads. His extracurricular activities were divided largely between the Public Relations Committee and his church ' s choir. Although taking part in the elective program. Chuck always managed to maintain an academic average of which he can be proud. His interests in the classroom tended more towards the social sciences and the Russian language, but at the same time he insisted upon being well-informed of the latest in scientific de- velopments. Devoted to getting a job well done. Chuck will be a valuable asset to the Navy. LUIS ALBERTO ADRIASOLA Santiago, Chile When Lou first reported to the Academy, he and the upperclassmen found that he would be at a " slight " disadvantage during his stay here, this disadvantage being the language barrier. " Pardon me, sir? " was an oft heard expression, but with the passage of time his English became more fluent. Although playing soccer and innumerable duties as company Ring and Crest Committee Representative took up much of his free time, he managed to fare exceptionally well on his exams, never going below the 2.5 level, though coming as close as possible on a few occasions. During football season one had to look no farther than the first row of the cheering section, where his fanatical cheering and mad gesticulations made him easily visible. Although he will not be a member of the Armed Forces of the U. S., due to his Chilean citizenship, Louie will always have a host of friends there. DAVID MICHAEL ANDERSON Rensselaer, Indiana Straight out of Rensselaer High School, Andy made the jump from the small town atmosphere of his Hoosier State to the hustle and bustle of the academy with comparative ease. An athlete in his high school days, he became a perennial high scorer on the company basketball team. His shy manner and good nature always attracted a large following among the fairer sex, but quick thinking and tact always kept him one step ahead of them. Due to living for three years with roommates from New York, Dave is probably the only Hoosier in history with a Brooklyn accent. Between bouts with " The System, " Dave divided his time evenly among girls, rock and roll, and academics. As for the future he plans to gain his three stars in either Navy Air or Navy Line and to remain a bachelor for as long as possible. With his winning ways and good humor he is sure to be a capable addition to any wardroom. 290 Class of 1963 LARRY RICHARD ATKINSON Quaker City, Ohio Larry, one of our more silent classmates, found his way to the Naval Academy after spending one year at Ohio University where he was major- ing in engineering. Larry ' s quiet manner and good nature has gained him many friends at the Naval Academy. He is an active participant in intra- mural sports and was a hard runner for the company cross-country team. Upon graduation Larry will fall in with the long line of newly-commissioned officers and will undoubtedly make an outstanding officer and gain the respect of those who serve under and with him. THOMAS HARRY AULENBACH Easton, Pennsylvania " Ollie, " The Big Pennsylvanian, came to Crabtown directly from Wilson High School in Easton, Pennsylvania, where he excelled in both academics and athletics. He stood in the upper fifth of his graduating class and lettered in football thrice and wrestling twice. His agility and quick- ness, especially for a big boy, has found him in the winners circle after many plebe and battalion wrestling matches. Next to wrestling, " Ollie " ranks battalion football in which he has done a fine job playing any of the positions in the line. Academics were by no means easy to come by for him but with much hard study and diligence " Ollie " has been able to maintain a very respectable average. With his tremendous sense of humor, outstanding personality, and will to have a good time, Tom has won himself many friends, and he will be, I am sure, one of the main attractions in any wardroom which is lucky enough to have him. RICHARD GEORGE BACHMANN New Hyde Park, New York A New Yorker by birth and by choice, Dick arrived at Annapolis from his Long Island high school. After a year of Navy football and lacrosse, he retired from the big-time intercollegiate athletics, devoting him- self to studying and dragging. Indoor sports then became his prime interest. Dick was part of the Academy ' s intellectual fringe, spending much time on his German and never-quite written novel. However, he could never be found during liberty hours. As a skindiver, Dick was great underwater, but he never quite got the hang of staying afloat. Having demonstrated considerable ability and persistence during his Academy days, Dick ' s future endeavors are sure to meet with success. Second Battalion 291 GILBERT PIERRE BARBE Oostende, Belgium Gil joined the class of 1963 only after receiving from the Belgian Military Academy a commission as second lieutenant in the Belgian Army. Upon graduation he is returning to Oostende, where he was raised in staunch European tradition. Four years in the United States has led Gil to cultivate interests in American food, automobiles, and women. From the selection of American delicacies, he has singled out the Coney Island hot dog as his favorite. He also is impressed with the production of American cars, inferior though they may be. But he denies all possibilities of his supporting any entangling alliances with an American girl. Athlet- ically Gil favored his European specialty, soccer, but he was also busy with several of the Academy ' s unfamiliar list of sports. Though Gil ' s future lies in Belgium, the U. S. Naval Academy ' s mark will be seen in the success he is sure to win. WILLIAM CLIFFORD BARNEY Wallace, Idaho A westerner. Cliff came to us from Wallace, Idaho, straight from high school where he lettered in track. Here, the time he had left over from his one-man campaign with the academic departments seemed to be abundant for three men. He managed the varsity gym team, rowed 150 pound crew, dragged frequently, and engaged in numerous hobbies. Cliff ' s willing and tenacious attitude coupled with his open manner con- tribute much to his being one of the most likeable guys around. We ' re sure that Cliff will be a welcome addition to the fleet. WILLIAM JOHN BECK, III New York, New York Bill came to the Academy from New York as he will personally tell you whether you ask or not. Bill previously attended Brooklyn Prep, where he was a captain of the swimming team and star pitcher for the baseball team. His talents did not leave him when he came to USNA. As a plebe he excelled in both swimming and baseball and has constantly improved in these sports. Bill is not only an outstanding athlete but also an excellent student, having attained the Superintendent ' s list. Somehow between athletics and studies Bill always managed to stop and contemplate life in the pad, on the deck or, during plebe year, in the closet. His social life also prospered. He always managed to have a drag at big events and says with a sly smile that he is quite a social lion. Bill with his outstanding spirit and vigorous perseverance has truly been a credit to the Brigade and will make an outstanding officer in the armed services. 292 Class of 1963 HENRY LOUIS BELL, JR. Kenedy, Texas Hank came to Navy after one year as a " Teasipper " at the University of Texas. During his four years here, Hank has found time for many out- side interests, especially in Navy ' s musical organizations. Every Sunday found him eying the Chapel balcony while marching in and out with the choir. Youngster year we all saw him try his hand at musical comedy with t he musical club show. Though always running short. Hank has always found the way to buy " one more " record. His popularity and spirit here at USNA show that Hank will have a rewarding life as a line officer in Uncle Sam ' s destroyer fleet. JOHN CECIL BENDER Grandview, Washington Hailing from the great state of Washington, John found the change from the good life of the West Coast to the rigorous routine at USNA to be little trouble. Excelling in academics, his name nearly always was found on the Superintendent ' s List among the top men of the class. His good nature and quiet manner won him many friends during his four years as a midshipman. Among his many interests were aviation, music, intramural sports, the " Bull " Department, and liberty. On weekends, during his last two years, one could usually find John with his OAO here in Crabtown. Even though he has many career fields from which to choose, John is planning a future with Navy Air, following the footsteps of his firstie. The future will undoubtedly find him continuing to be a credit to the Academy and the Brigade. WILLIAM EDWARD BOWEN Savannah, Georgia Bill is another of those southern gentlemen from the great state of Georgia. After graduating from high school, and attending Marion Mili- tary Institute, he joined the Brigade. Since he has been on the banks of the Chesapeake, he has made quite a name for himself as a gymnast, making the parallel bars his event. During second class summer, he stayed at the Academy to teach the plebes the tricks of the trade — gaining another name for himself from the new class. The members of ' 65 still remember the superman of the extra duty squad. Second Battalion 293 EDWARD CLARENCE BRADY Port Richie, Florida Ed came to the Naval Academy from the shadow of the walls of the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut. During his tenure here, he swapped ice and snow for sand and sunshine when his family moved to Port Richie, Florida. Ed was known by all for his friendly smile — at least ten per cent of his waking hours. Otherwise, it was rumored that his black cloud was responsible for the Annapolis weather. Ed ' s massive frame suited him for his role as crew coxswain his first two years, but after these seasons of rudders and voice, he retired to company sports. Assuming that he distinguishes himself at his duties as well as he has at parties, Ed will be a beneficial element in any branch of the service. WALTER JOHN BREEDE, III White Plains, New York Walt left Archbishop Stepinac High School in July of 1959 en- route to USNA and his four years by the Severn. Plebe year soon proved that he had a head on his shoulders and knew how to use it, for he spent a mere six weeks on company tables. How he loved those training tables for cross-country and track! According to tradition Youngster year is for sleeping and dragging. Walt broke few traditions there. The only problem was that he was dragging so much he didn ' t have time to sleep. The remaining two years proved to be just about the same. Walt had a hand in designing the 1963 Class Crest, was on the Brigade Activities Committee, and supported numerous other activities on every level. Meanwhile, he majored in Literature and maintained a fine grade average. On top of all- this, he could always find time to devote to a wayward plebe. The unit Walt joins will receive an outstanding officer and the United States will receive a fine citizen, ready, willing, and able to carry more than his share of the burden. RICHARD WENDELL BROWN Beverly Hills, California Before coming to the Naval Academy, Dick attended New Mexico Military Institute, Santa Monica City College, and the University of Southern California. Dick was active in extracurricular activities, being in the Antiphonal Choir, class ring and crest committee, and he also acted as company honor representative. He was a valuable man to have on any intramural team, being a hard worker and consistent point-getter in all sports in which he participated. A friendly, easy going guy, he was always ready to lend a helping hand, whether it was to help a classmate or a plebe. Dragging or not, Dick could usually be found nearly every weekend at a particular residence on King George. A credit to the Brigade, he will surely be a success in the service or any other aspect of professional life he will encounter. 294 Class of 1963 CHARLES JOSEPH BUSTAMANTE Mexico D. F., Mexico Joe, a typical Latin lover with an affinity for exquisite women and fine liquors, came to the Naval Academy from Mexico City. It took Joe two years at the Academy to learn that there must be moderation in such things. After completing high school in Mexico, he entered the U. S. Navy. While in the service, he attended the U. S. Naval Academy Prep School and found himself at the doorstep of the Academy. During Joe ' s USNA years he was active in extracurricular activities. He proved his leadership abilities while holding administrative positions in the Spanish Club and conversely his willingness to work as a part of a team as a member of several intramural sports championship teams. An ardent lover of the Corps, Joe seeks a career in Marine Air. It is evident that he has the fine qualities to make an excellent officer in that proud branch of the service. RONALD JOEL CALHOUN Sacramento, California Ron came to us, after two years at Sacramento City College, from the great state of California although he was born in Kentucky. Staying in the upper third of his class, Ron bolstered the company and battalion sports squads in crew, football, soccer, and cross country; and all this he did with such ease that the weekends usually found him with an eye- catching member of the fairer sex. His pleasant personality and warm manner have won Ron many friends during his four years and will con- tinue to do so in his future career in the Navy. Good luck and all the best, Ron. Second Battalion 295 LEE BRUELLMAN CARGILL Grtdley, Illinois Lee hails from Illinois where he attended two years of college before entering the Naval Academy. It was at college that Lee was first exposed to flying. After acquiring his Pilot ' s License, he decided that his future was in Navy Air. With his quick smile and agreeable nature, he soon became popular with his fellow Midshipmen. Although appreciative of the fairer sex, Lee devoted all his attentions to " the girl back home. " While at the Academy he was a member of the Glee Club and Protestant Chapel Choir. Besides music some of his interests were sports, liberty, and airplanes. By drawing on those two invaluable years of college Lee was able to prevent academics from interfering with his daily routine. Although he changed in many respects after arriving at the Academy, he remained loyal to his original ambition and Navy Air will soon be gaining a fine young officer. KENNETH LEROY CARLSEN Shenandoah, Iowa Ken is a native lowan, born in Red Oak, Iowa. Before entering the Naval Academy, Ken spent a year at the University of Iowa majoring in engineering. At the Academy Ken was very active in company soccer, touch football, and softball. He found no trouble with academics, a claim best demonstrated by his high class standing. Ken also possesses a great per- sonality which has won him innumerable friends. Aside from Academy life, Ken ' s hobbies are fishing and hunting on the midwest Iowa plains. He also enjoys a varied selection of music. During his four years at the Naval Academy Ken showed a great deal of the leadership and other virtues which will make him an outstanding officer serving his country. WILLIAM REGINALD CARMICHAEL, JR. Bryan, Texas Bill saw the light after a year at Texas A M and followed his guiding star to Annapolis. Having a good voice, he joined the chapel choir. Since he has some brains to go along with his voice, he tried out for the varsity debate team and made an excellent showing for himself. To take care of his fall and spring afternoons, he became a member of the midshipman sailing squadron. When the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference came to the Brigade, Bill took part and did more than his share to keep the program moving. With his ability to do a good job in so many different activities simultaneously, he will make a good showing in whatever field of endeavor he should choose. 296 Class of 1963 DONALD WILLIAM CHRISTENSEN PaoU, Pennsylvania Chris entered Navy after two years in the Marine Corps. " The old Salt " soon discovered age was creeping up on him and retired from varsity competition after playing plebe basketball and plebe soccer; many amazed batters will attest to his pitching ability with a Softball. Not being very academically inclined, he placed more emphasis on the extracurricular activities offered at the Academy — namely, the pad. Chris always had a smile for everyone and an attitude that will make him a welcome addition to any wardroom. WILLIAM EARLE COLE Knoxville, Tennessee Bill made the switch from " barefoot boy in blue-jeans " in the hills of Tennessee to a " middle " with ease, just as he has been successful in everything he has attempted. He put aside his normal slow moving, easy going manner when he got on the athletic field and was a driving, con- stantly hustling player on the intramural soccer, football and lacrosse teams. An ardent lover of the outdoors, Bill was always eager to return to the fields and streams of his home state at every opportunity. Neither academics nor girls were a problem for him, and he spent much of his free time plunking on a guitar and singing in his colorful southern drawl. Bill ' s smiling, sparkling personality won him many close friends at the Academy and will continue to win him friends wherever he goes. The land of mountain men and moonshine whiskey made a valuable contribution to the Naval Service in the form of Bill Cole. DENNIS RONALD CONLEY Los Angeles, California Denny came to these eastern waters after six months at Los Angeles City College. A serious countenance and a straight-forward outlook at his duties made him a good plebe and paved the way for a successful three years as an upperclass. A person who took his academics seriously, he studied and worked with diligence. Believing that there is a time to work and a time to play, he enjoyed his leisure with his stereo and idyllic afternoons in the pad. General competitive sports were favorites with this tall Californian and basketball headed the list. He represented the intra- mural cage teams well. A strong believer in the extra things that can be learned here at USNA, Denny gained the respect of all through his personal bearing and character. His friends look forward to seeing a long, rewarding career filled with all the challenges for which he has ably prepared. Second Battalion 297 LANDON GREAUD COX, JR. Lexington, Kentucky Lanny came here from the land of mint juleps and fast thorough- breds — Lexington, Kentucky, In his years at USNA he managed to spread his many talents throughout the Hallowed Grounds, from the Chapel, where he exhibited his vocal talents as a member of the Antiphonal Choir, to the music platforms as a member of the concert band and on to the field of athletic endeavor on the varsity tennis courts. Within the halls of Mother Bancroft, Lanny contribmted to the success of the Brigade Ac- tivities Committee. As for musical tastes, he would bend an ear toward any type of melody and rhythm, with a certain favoritism toward " Dixie. " He was never one to complain about liberty or leave starting too early or ending too late. Lanny ' s many activities were allowed by the fact that his studies never by necessity occupied that extra time. His abilities can surely fill more than a casual need of any branch of the service. ANDREW JAMES CURTIN Arlington, Virginia Andy may never become the youngest admiral, but he will long be remembered by the bevy of girls he met and dated during his stay here. Also interested in sailing, graduation, and leave, he gave up sailing youngster year for intramurals and was always a tremendous help to the team. He seemed to spend most of his time trying to beat the steam department or get off the varsity sub-squad. His happiest moments here were when he was talking about flying or after the Redskins or Senators won a game. His knowledge of the area and the places to go in Washington always made him a focal point of attention just before leaves. Andy is sure to be a welcome addition to whichever branch of the service he chooses, and he undoubtedly will make as lasting a mark on the service as he has on his classmates. HENRY FREDRICK DALTON Tucson, Arizona Before coming to the Naval Academy Hank spent two years in the Marine Corps. When on the job. Hank always displayed a strict aware- ness of duty and responsibility, and during his free time he never allowed the light vein to escape his attention. Demonstrating a definite facility for organization and leadership. Hank participated in the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conferences. His effort contributed to a great degree in establishing the Conference as an annual event at the Naval Academy. Hank ' s talent also enabled the Public Relations Club to become a greater success during his years at the Academy. In the years to come. Hank ' s potential as an officer in the Naval service will be realized to the fullest extent. 298 Class of 1963 NICHOLAS THOMAS DARAMUS, JR. Cleveland, Ohio This native Buckeye was gifted with a good sense of humor. One could hear " Nickie-Boo ' s " laugh from a distance of three corridors, two alleys, and one wing. A mainstay of the company sports squads, Nick could always be seen whipping up that old spirit. Although gymnastics was not his sport, Nick finally mastered number three on the blue tram- poline, after three long years of practice. Nick never had much trouble with the academics, or with having a good time. Many of those good times were connected with his out-in-town church party and " Mom. " After graduation, Nick plans to go Navy Air and see the world from a bird ' s eye view. MILO PHILIP DAUGHTERS, II Springfield, Oregon Although he was known throughout the class for his frequent diet- ing, Milo will perhaps be remembered more for his conscientious and hard working attitude. He faced the many challenges of Naval Academy life squarely and seriously, at the same time maintaining his keen sense of humor, thus producing an excellent record and a jovial and well rounded personality. His triumphs were manifested on the squash courts, at the debating tables, and in the classroom, while he relaxed by listening to Country and Western music. His sincerity and his many capabilities will indeed go hand in hand to produce in him a shining success as an officer and a gentleman. FRANCIS LESLIE DAVEY, JR. Abington, Pennsylvania When the State of Pennsylvania delivered this young man to the banks of the Severn she sent one of her finest. Frank could always be found out in front of everything if by nothing moie than height. His smil- ing personality and friendly manner quickly gained him a place of respect among his classmates as did his energy and perseverance gain him a place in a Navy shell. With lightweight crew his favorite sport, Frank quickly became a well-known figure in Hubbard Hall. Nor was he an unfamiliar sight at social functions around the yard, always ready and willing to meet new people and make new friends, especially of the feminine variety. A quick wit and easy-going, pleasant disposition mark Frank for a bright and promising future in whatever he may do. He will certainly be as much a credit and service to his country as he has been to the Academy. Second Battalion 299 JOHN DAVID de HOLL Arlington, Virginia Dave, coming to the Naval Academy from Iowa, brought with him wide travel experience, having lived all over the country. Although he is not a service junior Dave thinks he will like the different locations and variety of tours of duty which the service offers. A very good athlete, Dave ' s biggest contribution to Navy sports was in wrestling. During other seasons he could be found supporting sixteen wherever a good man was needed. Dave also contributed his many talents to the Trident magazine, putting in long hours to produce a fine publication enjoyed by the entire Brigade. A very pleasant and friendly individual, Dave was popular among his classmates throughout the Brigade as well as being quite popular with the ladies. Reliable and capable, Dave is sure to have a bright future, wherever his path may lead upon his departure from the banks of the Severn. JOHN EDWARD DOLBY Columbus, Ohio This outgoing, not to say boisterous, son of Ohio stormed into the peaceful harbor of Annapolis after one year at Ohio State University. Here he assumed the position of booster for the Buckeyes in particular and his native state in general. His Academy interests were channeled toward his academic goals, with the result of a high class standing. John also found time for occasional attendance of Spanish Club and Newman Club meet- ings, and for many of the science seminars. In sports, John ' s favorite intra- mural endeavor was touch football, but he gave that up second class year to serve as manager for the varsity wrestling team. His musical tastes leaned to jazz, but he was seldom able to indulge in that pleasure, thanks to a pair of adamant roommates. In his future, John sees a fast sports car and a bachelor officer ' s career. MERRILL HERRICK DORMAN Pacific Palisades, California Merrill ' s interest seems to lie in the field of nuclear power. For- saking his carefree days of Army ROTC in high school, Merrill came fronri the Golden State to the hallowed shores of the Severn, ready to tackle anything the Navy could give him. In the daily struggle with the supreme powers of learning, Merrill was usually the victor. His prowess consistently earned him a spot on the Superintendent ' s List, and his athletic ability put him on the training tables for plebe football, and a starring spot on the intramural teams for four years. Consistently outstanding in everything he does, Merrill has been an asset to the Naval Academy and will continue to be so in whatever field he chooses to enter. 300 Class of 1 963 JACK GEORGE DRANTTEL 5 ' . Peter, Minnesota Jack, called " Spider " by his friends, has been very active in Naval Academy activities. As a member of the Catholic Choir, Glee Club, Pistol Team, and a familiar figure around Hubbard Hall, Spider put in many hours of his spare time for USNA. Even with these other interests Jack maintained a very high academic average throughout his four years. As the old saying goes, " all work and no play make Jack a dull boy, " so our Jack never let work interfere with having a good time, as evidenced by the sounds coming from his room during study hours, and by his active participation in the innumerable Midshipman parties. As Jack got his highest grades in Bull and his political science major, he would like to study Law in P. G. School after first establishing himself as a submarine officer. JAMES RALPH DUKE Shrewsbury, Massachusetts " Duker, " a Massachusetts Yankee if there ever was one, came to the Academy straight from high school. Being an avid fan of professional baseball and football, he was always ready to defend his favorite teams with the facts if an argument arose. Always concerned about academics, a definite persistence in his studies merited him good grades. Even though he was a staunch Yankee with a Boston accent, he was never at a loss around the many Southern girls he met at the Academy. His musical talent with the drums also earned him a position on the Academy ' s Drum and Bugle Corps. With a deep love for the military life, along with per- sonality and quick wit, Jim is sure to be a success in his chosen profession. PATRIC STAM ENRIGHT Malone, New York Pat came to the Naval Academy from Clarkson Tech, where a year of Army ROTC served to put him behind the other plebes of ' 63 as far as being squared away. While this obstacle was being overcome, Pat ' s plebe year antics made him known to his classmates as " the Vulture. " Good grades came to Pat from hard work and persistent effort. His con- tacts with the opposite sex were on the " trial-and-error " method — each girl received a trial until he made an error to end the relationship. A lover of the outdoors, Pat ' s greatest interest lies in hunting, on which subject he is a- well versed authority. With one eye always looking ahead, Pat will meet success in whatever field he chooses in the future. Second Battalion 301 JOSEPH HARRY FIELDS Washmgtoti, D. C. Josh, a major in both math and physics, was one of the few Mid- shipmen at the Academy that studied more than he slept. Because of academic talent and vivacious personality, Josh was always found with someone peering over his shoulder. Sometimes he even spent more time on his friends ' homework than his own. Josh ' s activities, however, were hardly confined to the books. He was an active member of the Public Relations Committee. In regards to athletics his interests included volley- ball, cross-country, basketball, and football. Finally, when at the end of the week Josh was found to be dragging again, one always wondered if he slept at all. Whatever Josh endeavors in the future, he is bound to be a credit to his class and the Naval service. JOHN NORTH FISCHER, JR. Gull Lake, Michigan Jack came to us from the heart of the water wonderland, a fact that he never failed to overstress. Possessing a well rounded personality, Jack ' s achievements covered almost all possible fields at the Academy. To his athletic feats in sailing, basketball, football, Softball, tennis, and soccer. Jack added many extracurricular activities such as antiphonal choir and those pertaining to the few who supported the burden of responsibility in the Brigade. As if this were not enough, Jack still managed to obtain excellent grades and even carry overloads. One of his greatest assets was his drags, often coming from the old country and always responsible for many a second glance from the Brigade. Jack has been one of the in- dividuals credited for the prestige that the Brigade enjoys throughout the states and the world. With him the Armed Forces of the United States will acquire an outstanding officer as well as a gentleman in every sense. JAMES ALFRED FISHER Ontario, California Jim came to USNA fresh from high school in Ontario, California, and discovered that he was about the youngest man in his class. However, this did not daunt Jim; he went on to win his numerals on the plebe tennis team and plebe pistol team. After plebe year, Jim decided that ocean racing and pistol went together and became the sharpest-shooting ocean racer to sail a yawl or fire a pistol at USNA. Never having a particularly difficult time with academics, Jim had plenty of time to participate in the German Club as well as his sports. There is no doubt that Jim will make a fine Naval Officer and be a success in any field he should choose. 302 Class of 1 963 CHARLES EVERETT FRENCH Kokomo, Indiana Chuck was one of those people with whom it was always a pleasure to associate, possibly it ' s because of his " Hoosier " upbringing. A broad smile and a cheery " Hi " is his greeting to all he knows. Even the cold weather failed to dampen his spirit. He was always ready to lend a helping hand to classmates in a bind. Skip, as he was also called, was his high school valedictorian. Consequently, academics were among his many assets but did not receive all his attention. The Naval service has done well to receive such an outstanding officer. As our class comes to the parting of the ways, all will look forward to seeing Chuck again. RICHARD THOMAS FRISBIE Middletown, Ohio This tall, blond midwesterner with the winning personality was always well liked by his classmates. His genial manner and quick wit never failed to lighten the darkest situation. Before coming to USNA, Friz attended Kemper Military School where he stood number one in science and mathematics. A wizard with numbers, Friz was always willing and often asked to lend a helping hand to his less talented classmates. How- ever, Friz ' s interests were by no means confined to his slide rule and log tables. His boyish grin and easy going manner were big assets in another of his major interests, girls. A fine competitor in athletics, Friz ' s favorite was bowling. He sported a 200 average during the summers. But Friz ' s wide range of interests do not end here. He spent a good deal of his spare time educating himself on classical music, and he became quite an authority on the subject. With his well rounded approach to both work and play. Friz is sure to be a success in whatever career he may choose. DAVID EUGENE FROST Long Prairie, Minnesota One of the best-liked men in the class, " Chills, " hails from the thriving metropolis of Long Prairie, Minnesota. Always willing to lend a hand to anyone, his personality and ever present smile helped to make smooth sailing on many a rough sea. " Chills " devoted much spare time to developing many of his two week kicks, which took him from mythology and chess all the way to poker and bridge. His athletic prowess and un- tiring spirit gave a big boost to his Battalion ' s football and soccer teams. He was, however, no slouch when it came to academics. Armed with an outstanding personality, and ability to make friends quickly, and a keen mind, " Dave " should have no trouble achieving his life-time goal: to be a good Naval officer. Second Battalion 303 CHARLES EITHEL GALLOWAY Evansville, Indiana Hailing from the Hoosier State of Indiana, Chuck came to Annapolis after two years at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. Chuck made his presence felt Plebe Summer and continued to do so during his time at USNA. He was one of the all-Youngster infield in 1961, and he impressed many with his smooth play at shortstop. Chuck was always one for a lively party and exhibited his prowess in this field whenever leave, football trips, cruise, or a weekend came around. Quite an avid record collector, Chuck showed a partiality to good smooth jazz and was always in the mood to add to his record collection. An average student, Chuck appeared to have little trouble with the academics while at the Naval Academy. During second class summer Chuck enjoyed the flying and may try for a career in Naval Aviation. Whichever branch of the service Chuck chooses to enter upon graduation he is sure to be a success. He will always be remembered by those who knew him best as a good man with a tremendous will to win. JAMES CHRISTOPHER GARDE Brooklyn, New York When Sam came to the Naval Academy from Brooklyn, he brought with him an untiring spirit and a smile. He could al ways be counted on for his support of any Navy team or to have a good word for anyone. Sam ' s main hobbies were swimming and playing the guitar. One could usually find him at the pool on his Battalion swimming or water polo team, and many a night was brightened by his guitar. Because of his easy going nature, great sense of humor, and natural talent for making friends, he became one of the most well-liked men in the class. Sam also had a serious side. While at the Academy he took his academics seriously and had little or no trouble. Whatever Sam does in the future, success and many friends will be sure to follow. LAWRENCE LUTHER GRAHAM Hunt, Texas The Lone Star lost one of its best bronco busters when Larry decided to drift up East for a spell. From the big land of big men, came a big fellow named Larry, who was destined to make quite a name for himself at Navy. Quiet and easy going in the old Western tradition, Larry was suddenly transformed into a vicious badman when he stepped onto a foot ball field. Not satisfied with being a standout tackle on the varsity football team, he also contributed his strength to the Navy crew team, where he became a fine oarsman. Academics posed no real problem for Larry and so a great deal of his time was devoted to motorcycles and, of course, girls, as well as to a gigantic list of passing fancies. His personality was the kind that made him many friends and no enemies, with the exception of his opponents on the gridiron. Larry has set an outstanding pace here at USNA, and he will make just as fine a record in his years in the service. 304 Class of 1 963 WILEY GEORGE GRANTHAM North Charleston, South Carolina Though born in California, and a Navy junior with the usual list of former addresses, Wiley considers Charleston, S. C, his home and the South the seat of his loyalty. An avid sports fan and veritable walking encyclopedia of baseball, Wiley devoted himself enthusiastically to the sports department of the Public Relations Committee. His dry humor, friendly smile, and easy going manner helped Wiley to make friends with everyone he met, save only the Math Department which persecuted him relentlessly. A practicing advocate of keeping calm, he often defeated nerve-wracking studies by calm persistence. Nevertheless, he managed to keep a jump ahead for four years. A quick imagination made Wiley a natural at any sort of composition, be it letters, songs, or poetry with which he constantly delighted his classmates. The son of a shipboard officer, Wiley will join the Navy line upon graduation. DAVID HANFORD GREEN Altadena, California Dave, sometimes called Monsieur Le Blumel, in honor of his faltering French, came to the Academy from Altadena, California, via Colombian Prep School. Dave brought with him quite an array of talents, the most important of which was his ability to remain calm under any circumstances. This ability combined with an unequaled sense of humor made Dave one of the few men who really enjoyed Plebe Year. Dave has always been active in battalion sports, notably handball, and has been equally active in company activities. His free time has always been spent in the company of music or a girl, each of which reflected his superb taste. Dave ' s graduation will leave a gap in the brigade which will be hard to fill, but the Academy ' s loss will be the fleet ' s gain as Dave fulfills his lifelong ambition to become a Naval officer. WILLIAM THOMAS GUNN, III Lovington, New Mexico Bill came to the Naval Academy from the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico, where he often spent happy days on his Grandfather ' s ranch " punchin ' cows. " Bill attended the University of New Mexico for one year before entering the Academy. It was there that he picked up the nickname " Pete " which has remained on his calling card ever since. Track dominated his sporting interests at the academy, but his pursuit of a major soon led his energies along more academic lines. On leave one could always find Bill pursuing his most enjoyable interest, women. Bill was always quick with a smile and known for his jokes and untimely puns. He was always thoughtful and generous, making many lasting friends. His greatest joy was the mail call which never left his desk unoccupied thanks to the girls. His good humor and high spirits made him a credit to the Brigade and his drive to make the " best " better will make him as fine an officer as he is a person. Second Battalion 305 ORVILLE OTTO HANSON Little Falls, Minnesota Orv came to the banks of the Severn from " The Land of Sky Blue Waters, " after spending time on an aircraft carrier with the fleet and going to NAPS. He quickly assumed positions of leadership as battalion and company representative and was always in his class in both academics and aptitude, his name often appearing on the Superintendent ' s list. Orv, who could always be found playing a sport when he wasn ' t studying, was well known for his skill in the ring as a brigade boxer and was a dependable scorer on company fieldball and soccer teams. He never seemed to let anything bother him for any length of time. His cheerful attitude could certainly be attributed to the fact that he rarely missed a weekend of dragging his " One and Only. " EDWARD SPAULDING HARTFORD, JR. Manchester, New Hampshire Ed is a New Englander, from the thriving metropolis of Man- chester, New Hampshire. After graduating from Manchester High School, he arrived at Severn ' s shores just three weeks later! Despite his New England accent, which caused him much grief during plebe year, Ed was able to make himself fairly well understood. His only major academic barrier was the foreign language department. Spanish just didn ' t get along with Ed at all. The rest of the academic program only bothered Ed from time to time, as it did the rest of his classmates. During the spring Ed ' s favorite sport was golf. He was a fair golfer, but was tempted to break more than one club on the tough Navy course across the river. Upon receiving his commission on graduation, Ed will make a valuable addition to our nation ' s defense program. RAYMOND RICE HEINS Nashville, Tennessee Navy acquired Ray from Nashville and Vanderbilt University. Here at Navy, his many abilities were soon in evidence in both sports and academics. After a season of sailing during plebe year, Ray devoted himself to intramurals, chiefly soccer and fieldball. During youngster year he was a standout on the Brigade championship fieldball team. His name appeared on the Superintendent ' s List many times, and Ray devoted a lot of time to maintaining his good average. This hard work and diligence is representative of his attitude toward any task he undertakes. His favorite liberty recreation (while within the seven mile limit, that is) was exercising on the blue trampoline. Always well liked by his classmates, Ray, with his easy manner and extensive talents, can look forward to a highly successful Naval career. 306 Class of 1963 FRANK CLAYTON HOLMES Armonk, New York Frank, the Innocent, came to the Navy from Port Chester, New York, and soon became one of the most popular men in his company. Always ready with a joke, Frank could be counted upon to liven up any party. Although he helped the First Battalion swimming team to a Brigade Championship his youngster year, Frank was probably best known through- out the Brigade as the most-scored-upon goalie in water polo history. Aside from his many aquatic feats, Frank will always be remembered by many as the " Used Junk King. " Whatever the market — used radios, used records, old hi-fi ' s, used jewelry — Frank was always there with the goods. With plans of a career in Naval Aviation, Frank will certainly be a credit to the Service. IRVIN GAYLORD HOPKINS, II Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Gay came to the Naval Academy from Haverford Prep in Philadel- phia, highly touted as a potentially great Navy swimmer. He let no one down, setting numerous records, pacing the Blue and Gold to victory in many swimming meets, and representing the Naval Academy in the Na- tional Championships. Swimming occupied much of Gay ' s free time, and each afternoon would find him working hard in the Natatorium. Although swimming was Gay ' s main concern during his four years here, he still found time to hit the blue trampoline regularly, and each weekend would find him with a drag on his arm. While Gay ' s academic records do not compare too well with his swimming, he seldom had to do much more than study a little to come up with a passing mark. Gay ' s easy manner and friendly personality insure him a successful Naval career and will make him a great asset to the military service, just as he has been to the Brigade and to the class of ' 63. RODNEY HOPKINSON Altadena, California Rod came to the East coast from the land of sunshine and Rose Bowls, packing a flintlock across his arm. Soon Rod found a place on the Plebe Rifle team. A devoted fan of " Peanuts, " he kept his bust of Beethoven polished to high gleam. During his spare time Rod could often be found on the squash courts or pursuing his interests in the Stamp Club. During the winter, he kept himself amused by bombarding the Plebe rooms across Kelly Court with snowballs. Never one to let studies get the best of him, he constantly maintained a Superintendent ' s List average. As of the present, " Navy subs are better than those surface ships " to Rod, but time will tell for sure. Second Battalion 307 JERRY FRANCIS HUSS Ironwood, Michigan Raised in the wilds of Michigan ' s Upper Peninsula, Jerry came to the Naval Academy straight from high school, finding the city of Annapolis a little bigger and a little more bustling than Ironwood. During his time at the Academy, he was active in the Public Relations Club, New- man Club, Altar Boys Society, and the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference. He put his experience in basketball to good use with the company basketball team. A weekend would usually find him somewhere in the yard with a good looking girl, usually not the same one as last time. Jerry was always ready to help out a classmate; this willing help and cheery good humor will be terribly missed by his classmates as we go our separate ways. These attributes should carry Jerry far in his chosen career in the Navy. ALBERT ANTHONY ISGER Clairton, Pennsylvania Tony arrived on the Severn via Bullis Prep from Clairton, Pennsyl- vania. Plebe year proved to be more than he was accustomed as he slimmed down from two hundred pounds to a trim one hundred and seventy. After playing plebe football, he turned his talents to company volleyball, soccer, and fieldball. His easy going manner, good nature, and his own remembrance of plebe year made him an upperclassman to be liked rather than one feared by many plebes. Tony could be found almost any weekend out in Annapolis doing what he enjoyed best — relaxing! Although he had a lot of gripes, he would not have traded his four years at USNA for anything. MICHAEL ROBERT JACQMIN Green Bay, Wisconsin Whenever the subject of professional football was brought up, Mike was always ready to extol the virtues of his team, the Green Bay Packers. An avid follower of the " Pack " through thick and thin, he kept us informed of their progress with a locker door full of newspaper clip- pings. Besides football, Mike ' s interests and achievements were many and varied. He made sure that our performers always had their best face forward with the Masqueraders make-up gang. He covered sports contests for the Public Relations Committee. A better than average squash player, he was a mainstay of company teams. In spite of his many outside ac- tivities, he also maintained an outstanding academic record, carrying a full load of elective courses. With his background and capabilities, the military service will be gaining an excellent addition to its officer ranks. We should be hearing more about Mike in the coming years. 308 Class of 1963 ARNE EDWARD JOHNSON Bakersfield, California Hailing from southern California, Bud left the land of sunshine and came East to invest in a Naval career. A standout in all aspects of high school life, he continued to excel upon reaching the Academy. Bud was one of the select few who was able to apply himself quite successfully to the rigors of the academic life while at the same time contributing a great deal to the spirit of the Brigade by his unselfish participation in its extra-curricular aspects. Bud worked as diligently in his positions as Sports Editor of the Lucky Bag and member of the Public Relations Committee as he did in the classroom and on the athletic field. Utilizing a natural capability for leadership. Bud has been a credit to the Naval Academy and will surely become an outstanding officer when he takes his place in the fleet. JOHN MICHAEL JOHNSTON Fairfax, Virginia Mike, commonly known by his classmates as Egor, hails from nearby environs. Being the son of a Marine, he decided the best way to carry on the tradition was to enter the Academy. Upon entering Mike was an instant success both on the athletic fields and in the classrooms. Having concen- trated mainly on studies the first year, Mike shifted interests somewhat and could be seen on his Youngster year weekends with many a different girl on his arm. Mike not only excelled with the females, but could be seen giving his all on both varsity football and intramural athletic teams. With his perpetual desire to be on a winning team, and coming from a family of Marines, Mike naturally leans toward Marine Corps after grad- uation. Mike ' s ability to do the right thing at the right time, along with his cheerful smile and natural wit, should make him an asset to the Corps. THOMAS HOWARD JONES Reno, Nevada Tom put aside his guns, knives, and fishing rods and left the prairies and mountains of Nevada to spend four active years by the bay at Annapolis. Academics were no problem for Tom, as he excelled with a minimum of study and a maximum of relaxation, while devoting his spare time to the varsity lightweight crew, where he won his " N " as a standout oarsman, and to touch football in the off season. Although somewhat removed from the fields and streams, he still retained his love for hunting and fishing and was always ready to go by the time leave came around with the chance to head back to Nevada. A good deal of Tom ' s time was taken up by his never-ending search for an unbelievably perfect girl. Tom ' s future in the service looks very bright due to his sincerity, ability, and personality, and we predict that eventually he will return to the West on a ranch somewhere in the mountains in order to pursue the outdoor life again. Second Battalion 309 JOHN HENRY KAHRS, III Faramus, New Jersey Hank, a native of Paramus, New Jersey, moved into academy life and was soon caught up in the sports field. He rapidly made his mark in baseball and was a steady member of the pitching staff. Besides baseball all Hank could think of was tubes and radios. Needless to say the Electrical Department never gave this boy any trouble. Early in his stay here Hank became a member of W3ADO and began to haunt the radio shack regularly. Hank was also on the company cross-country team, but somehow always avoided running in a meet. Every Sunday morning Hank gave the folks in town a chance to hear his " wonderful " voice by singing in the church choir. WILLIAM JOHN KARPINSKI Lorain, Ohio " Karpy " came directly to the Severn ' s shore from Lorain High School in Ohio. During his plebe year he earned a starting berth on the plebe basketball team and then moved up to the varsity the following year. During the fall and spring. Bill could be found on the tennis courts or lending support to the company softball team. Second class summer stim- ulated his interest in the field of aviation into which he hopes to enter. BERNARD JOSEPH KELLY, JR. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Steeped in Naval Tradition at home, Bernie thought only of be- coming a naval officer. During his high school days, he strove toward achieving this goal by directing all his energies towards acceptance at the Academy. After succeeding in this respect, his tireless energies had just begun to be expended. His dedicated seriousness in the academic field has inspired many a classmate to higher goals. In intramural athletics, Bernie was always a leader. His quick talents as an athlete enabled him to excel in numerous and varied sports including basketball, football, and soccer. But his prowess in these many diversified activities was overshadowed by his inspiring attitude, his magnetic personality, and his dedicated nature. Armed with these enviable qualities, Bernie should never have any trouble coping with the many challenges that will face him as a Naval officer. 310 Class of 1963 WILSON DENVER KEY Hays, North Carolina Denny sailed to Severn ' s shore after a year ' s tutorage at UCLA. With a twinkling eye and devilish smile he took to storms of plebe year in stride, making the sternest upperclass eye turn. Savvy in his subjects, he had no trouble with academic life. Being one of those rare souls enjoying academic visits to the science building, Sampson Hall, his greatest interest is in math and science. Denver believed a strong body should house strong mind; his physical fitness programs, boxing and gymnastics being his favorite sports, are remembered by many. These were interspersed with periodic afternoon longings for the pad. Social life was not forgotten either; with a fun-loving spirit he was ever ready to meet and rise to any occasion that presented a fair young damsel or a good party. Denny faces the fleet and the future with a secure background and a ready assurance of a full, rewarding, and successful life and career. GEORGE LEONARD KING, JR. Fremont, Nebraska George came to the Academy after attending Midland College fpr two years. Plebe year found him contemplating his disillusionment of being another John Paul Jones. On Youngster cruise, he obtained the distinction of being one of the few midshipmen who got seasick on an aircraft carrier. George finally decided to join the Drum Bugle Corps during Youngster year. He did quite well due to his drumming ability and musical interest. At TRAMID George finally found a suitable military occupation, playing Marine on the sand dunes of Little Creek beach. He was affably called " Rip " by many of his classmates because he spent his spare time sleeping. No matter what branch of the service he joins, George will be an outstanding officer due to his personal pride and sense of accomplishment. EDWARD ALLEN KOLBE Point Pleasant, Pennsylvania A former Nittany Lion, Ed, or Eddie as he i ' s affectionately called by some, finally saw the light and journeyed south to join the ranks of the Brigade of Midshipmen. Ed, who was the toast of the flight instructors during second class summer, plans to follow in the footsteps of his brother, and pin on Wings of Gold soon after graduation. After starring for two years on the company cross-country team, Ed decided that his old frame was getting too decrepit to complete that grueling round-trip circuit any more. To remedy this, he went out for a less strenuous sport, company soccer (?). While at the Academy, Ed was never one known to be exactly wild about the books, yet maintained above average marks. Second Battalion 311 DAVID WILLIAM KONOLD, JR. Indianapolis, Indiana After struggling through plebe year, " Woofer " made quite a name for himself in Naval Academy athletics. Dave stroked the plebe shell to a national championship and was a mainstay of the varsity boat for three years. Between crew seasons, he was a member of the varsity basketball squad. Although not much of a " Bull " or language slash, Dave main- tained a very good average throughout his Naval Academy career. Dave ' s fine bass voice, combined with ability to play the guitar, made " Sing along with Woof " sessions a favorite pastime during many weekends spent in Bancroft Hall. Upon graduating, it will be either Navy Line or Civil Engineering Corps for Dav e. JOSEPH EDWARD KOTOWSKI Milwaukee, Wisconsin Joe will best be remembered by his classmates and friends for his quiet and easy-going ways. A consistent participant in intramural sports, Joe could frequently be seen on the soccer or football field upholding the honor of his company and battalion. Although Joe failed to set any academic records, his consistent and hard study enabled him to pass the course without too much trouble. Joe used his ability in foreign language to good advantage with the Italian Club. Although these activities left him little free time, Joe enjoyed relaxing playing pool, and many Mids will attest to his ability with the cue. The same perseverance and determination that marked his every endeavor as a Midshipman will assure Joe success in whichever field he enters upon his graduation. ERIC WESTON KRIEGER Louisville, Kentucky Eric is one of those fine Southern gentlemen that Kentucky pro- duces. He is another of those who came directly from high school to USNA. Like a true Kentuckian, he brought his hillbilly ways and knack of telling wild stories. During his more leisurely hours, he could be found tinkering with his always impressive hi-fidelity music system. With a lot of ability and spirit, he believed in making best better, and displayed ample proof of this by being an asset to many battalion and company sports. Studies have presented no major problem to Eric, a " Bull " slash and an excellent debater in any class. A potential career officer, Eric ' s quick wit and optimistic outlook on life indicate a successful future. 312 Class of 1 963 JAMES JOSEPH LAMB New York, New York Jim came from the bustling metropolis of New York and entered these hallowed halls as " " just another Plebe. " However, " " JJ " was never satisfied to be lost in the statistics, as he always stood high in academics and was a frequent member of the Superintendent ' s List. During recreation hours one could always find Jim with an oar in his grip, working at the one sport he could participate in while sitting down, crew. During his four years ' stay at the Academy, Jim was active in the Newman Club and took a special interest in the French Club, since he absorbed languages quite readily. On weekends " " JJ " was usually seen with a pretty girl, a different one every week. In future years Jim will be a great asset to the Naval Service, and his intelligence and curiosity will carry him far. JAMES BRYAN LASSWELL Rancho Santa Fe, California A Marine Corps junior, Jim left his home in sunny California to carry on the tradition. Always quick with a smile, he survived his four years without difficulty, except for a running battle with the English De- partment. The relatively northern climate of Annapolis was his other great source of complaint. Jim missed his December water-skiing. A great social- izer, he devoted much time and energy to the Mid ' s favorite pursuit, women. Jim ' s relating of his exploits provided us all with pleasant entertainment. His high school wrestling experience always stood him in good stead. Following in his father ' s footsteps, Jim is sure to be a great asset to the Corps. You always knew when he was around, and these hallowed halls have lost what the Marine Corps has gained. DAVID FREDERICK LEAKE Burlington, Iowa Dave came to USNA from the Tall Corn State via Columbian Prep in Washington, D. C. His first taste of big city life convinced him that this was the life and that USNA was for him. While at the Academy, Dave ' s athletic interests varied from plebe crew to Softball, volleyball, and football on the intramural level. His friendly manner made him a welcome addition to his class and greatly aided him in his special interest. This field of interest is femmes, in which the " ' farm boy " h ' as proved himself quite capable. His favorite liberty spot was Washington, D. C, where he achieved great success Youngster year. His personality, keen mind, and willingness to work will stand him in good stead when he reports to the Fleet. Dave plans to pursue a career in Navy Line, preferably in submarines, and will be as welcome an addition to the wardroom as he has been to his class. Second Battalion 313 K ' HERMAN JAMES LONG, JR. Kenosha, Wisconsin Herm came to the Academy from the state of Wisconsin, but as a result of his last name, picked up the nickname ' Huey ' early in his plebe year. He worked hard as a member of the Brigade Activities Committee and some of his close friends can relate several interesting midnight adventures in the yard during the football season. Academics in general presented no obstacle to Herm, and he usually maintained above average grades in his courses. He took advantage of the elective program and could frequently be found reading in his overloads in political science and history. Herm enjoyed the time he spent singing with the Glee Club and the Catholic Choir and will always remember some of the trips he made with these organizations. Once he settled down to a task, Herm worked hard towards its completion and this ability to fulfill an assigned task should lead him to success as an officer. GEORGE PAUL LOVE Braintree, Massachusetts After prepping at Bullis Preparatory School, Paul came to USNA to begin four years of continual warfare with the " skinny " and Math departments and, although outnumbered, stuck to his guns until his even- tual triumph. In the afternoon, you could usually find " Jeep ' ' on the river in a shell, as a valuable member of either the varsity or battalion crew team. The winter seasons were usually spent on company football. Paul ' s spare time was often spent in the pad or dragging, both to good effect. Paul ' s steady manner and attitude promise to stand him in good stead in the fleet both as a friend and as an officer, just as they have here. Good luck, Paul, and all the best to a fine officer of the future. 314 Class of 1963 ALAN LEE LUTZ Milwaukee, Wisconsin Al came to the Academy from Whitefish Bay High School via Columbian Prep and had little trouble adapting himself to life at Annap- olis. A compulsive collector, he seemed to be able to find a use for everything. Although free and easy going, Al was very active at the Academy. His membership in the Drum and Bugle Corps, the Chapel Choir, Public Relations Committee, and the Ocean Sailing Team occupied the better part of his time, but if there happened to be a project which lacked manpower or imagination, he always found time to supply both happily. Al ' s sense of humor left nothing to be desired, and his antics were a constant source of amusement to his many friends. His congeniality coupled with his sincere outlook on life is a source of pride to the Academy and the Fleet and will undoubtedly lead to a successful and very happy career. JIMMY SHERMAN LYNNE New Hampshire, Ohio After a year at Ohio U., Jim saw the light and came to USNA. A college education hasn ' t convinced Jim that New Hampshire is part of New England and not in the Midwest, as he still claims. Waynesfield- Goshen High School ' s first representative at the Academy found the academic program only a fair challenge, as his name frequently appeared on the Superintendent ' s List. Jim was a member of the model airplane club, and he plans to leave the miniatures for the real thing after gradua- tion. Known to his classmates as a reliable source of information, Jim always had the answer whether the problem concerned Nuclides, Religion, or Girls. Jim ' s amiable character and sincere dedication to his work are bound to make him a success in the fleet. MICHEAL JAMES McCARTHY Oakland, California Mike came to USNA after graduating from Bishop O ' Dowd High School. He suffered the full benefits of plebe year, but recovered very nicely to wind up youngster year with an envious standing. He always had a happy-go-lucky attitude even when the world wasn ' t playing the game fair. It seems there was always an inquisitive plebe before Mike trying to extract some of his thorough knowledge on the subject of aviation. When his thoughts weren ' t on those wings of gold, he was dreaming of the next leave when he could return to his One and Only on the other side of the country. Mike was always loyal to the company when it came to sports and was a hard worker all the time. He always attended the Math and Science Seminars for that little extra knowledge and, of course, never missed an Aero Engineering Club movie on his favorite subject. There is no doubt that Mike will enjoy a long, fruitful life dedicated to the Navy. Second Battalion 315 MARTIN WAYNE McCREARY, JR. Coronado, California As a native of sunny California, Wayne came a long way to the banks of the Severn. An all-around athlete while at high school on Coro- nado Island in San Diego Bay, he decided to turn his athletic prowess toward gymnastics upon his arrival at USNA. After his plebe year and one season with the varsity, he was a fine prospect in the rope climb, but his career was cut short when that event was eliminated from intercollegiate competition. So, Wayne then concentrated on intramurals where he offered outstanding contributions to the company soccer and softball teams. Wayne is convinced that California is the only place to live, and he returns every chance he gets to enjoy the surf around his home. A pleasant attitude and sense of humor have won him many friends. Certainly his personal pride and exacting manner in all he does will make him a credit to the service. JOHN JOSEPH McDonald West Palm Beach, Florida Jack came to Navy from West Palm Beach, Florida, redirecting his interest in the briny deep from sport fishing to becoming a naval officer. An indication of his professional interest and love of the sea was his enthusiastic participation in the Midshipman Sailing Squadron, where he began to learn the traditional art of a sailor — handling a taut ship in any wind. Crabtown winters discourage seafaring endeavor, so Jack turned to company sports, managing to remain in the great outdoors playing touch football. His interest in self-improvement led him into the science program which he eventually rejected in favor of a more liberal course of study, in addition to the basic course. Mac ' s clear thinking and open-mind coupled with firm self-confidence and a unique ability to make friends will make him a welcome asset in any wardroom. JEFFREY BRADFORD McLAURY Pueblo, Colorado Jeff came to the Naval Academy after spending a year in the Ivy League at Columbia University, where he was a member of the NROTC unit. His relaxed, straight-forward approach to life put him at ease in all groups, and his enthusiasm and determination made him a credit to the Brigade. Jeff always liked the challenge and enjoyment that sports gave him. Among his many and varied interests were football, wrestling, hand- bail, and golf. His relaxed and jovial personality made him a natural for the golf links. College inspired in Jeff a keen interest in the liberal arts. He continued to build on the basis he had acquired at college by spending much of his free time reading. Other free moments he spent listening to his collection of progressive jazz records. Along with his numerous interests, Jeff always made it a point to have a smile and a friendly word for his many friends. And if the quantity of perfumed mail he received is any criterion, he held his own with the girls. Jeff ' s mature, well rounded attitude will surely make him a welcomed addition to any organization. 316 Class of 1 963 ALAN NEILL MERKEL Middletown, Pennsylvania Born in January, 1939, in Missouri, Al spent most of his life in Iowa until his family moved to Pennsylvania during his Youngster year. After a year at Iowa State University, Al found his way to Annapolis by way of the fleet. He found academics not too difficult and was able to devote his time to a number of outside interests. When not dragging, " Merk " spent a lot of time thinking about his antique cars. Al has been pointing for a career in submarines from the time he came into the Navy. With his winning personality, dedication, and capacity for getting the job done the easiest way, he should have a fine one. THOMAS JOHN MIKULIS, JR. North Attleboro, Aiassachusetts Passing up several scholarships to go to a more carefree institution, Mickey came to the Academy right out of high school where he stood high in his class. Studies were never a problem for Tom; he was the man to see when you were " snowed. " With a good sense of humor and an easy- going manner, he won many lasting friends here at Navy. Being interested in only one little Miss back home in Massachusetts, Tom spent much of his weekend time reading and sleeping. He excelled in several intramural sports, but his favorite pastime seemed to be shooting the breeze with his classmates. His most distinguished traits were a readiness at reaching the logical conclusion and an ability to defend or alter his decision accordingly. With that mighty fine Navy line ahead, Tom should rise to retirement in only two decades. THOMAS HAYES MILLER Elizabethtown, Kentucky Born and raised in the land of pride and distilleries, Chico came to the Academy after a year at VMI. Having had one plebe year, he handled the second one with comparative ease and was able to devote much of his time to " brow beating " opponents in debate. In the off season his height and strength made him a welcome member of the battalion crew and water polo teams. The pad, dragging, and the concert band, in that order, took the rest of his spare time. After a two year struggle with " dago, " academics smoothed out. Not one to believe in books alone, Chico was almost a legend when it came to partying. His like for Kentucky bourbon and pretty girls will long be remembered. Tom ' s enthusiasm, clear thinking, and winning personality make him a sure success in every- thing that he attempts. Second Battalion 317 DAVID BAKER AMES MOORE Quonset Point, Rhode Island Dave or DBA, as he was more commonly known, came to Navy from the ranks of the Navy juniors. Having achieved his first goal of gaining active duty status, he set to work in earnest to develop his potential as a Naval Officer while becoming a member of the 1 2-hours-of-sleep-a-day set. DBA could always be found in or near his rack. Never one to worry about academics, Dave nevertheless always managed to avoid serious trouble in that area. A familiar figure at company volleyball and battalion football, he increased his professional training in the YP Squadron. With the utmost in ideals and degree of dedication, DBA is a competent addition to the Navy with whom anyone who has had the pleasure of his friendship would be proud to serve. DANIEL HAGAN MORAN, JR. Chicago, Illinois A native Chicagoan, Dan came to the shores of the Severn with an outstanding high school background in English and languages. He continued his language studies at the Academy, finishing the Russian course near the top of the class. The rest of Dan ' s studies proved to be no problem either, and consequently, he could often be seen escorting a certain pretty young lady about the yard on the weekends. Dan ' s other extra-curricular time was spent lending his voice to the Catholic Chapel Choir. His quick smile and wit to match were attributes which made him popular with his classmates. In everything he undertook, he was con- scientious, sincere, and diligent. A summer of flying at Pensacola and Jacksonville convinced Dan that the life of a Navy pilot can ' t be beat. We are confident that the air arm of the Navy is gaining an outstanding member. JOHN FREDRICK MORGAN Williams port, Pennsylvania John came to Severn ' s shores after a year at Penn State where he enjoyed civilian campus life while pursuing studies in Electrical Engineer- ing. This is where he got into the habit of studying in the pad which made plebe year particularly rough. This background, however, aided him in keeping well ahead of the academics with the exception of a few bouts with the EH G Department. John ' s interest in music and drumming ability made him a natural candidate for the D B Corps. His favorite hobby was stereo equipment, and you could always find him studying a stereo catalog or trying to figure out some new combination of sound effects. Johnny was quiet and reserved but made many lasting friends, and his standards of personal conditioning kept him high in his class in Physical Education. His perseverance and self-confidence will make him a valuable asset to any field of endeavor he chooses. 318 Class of 1963 GEORGE MICHAEL MULLEN South Bend, Indiana Mike Mullen, more popularly known as " Moon " throughout the Brigade, came to the Academy in a unique sort of way, through the Mili- tary Academy Prep School. As his classmates will testify, Mike is one of the outstanding members of ' 63. His ready smile and his willingness to lend a helping hand have made him a popular, solid citizen of the brigade. Although " Moon " waged a continuous battle with the skinny and steam departments, his persistent desire to do his best combined with his cheerful attitude enabled him to excel in this phase of academy life also. Mike is not all work and no play either. He was an active member of the Newman Club, the Portuguese Club, and the Reception Committee, as well as being a star performer in lacrosse, handball, and golf. The class of ' 63 is proud to have him as a member. CHRISTOPHER DAVID MUNGER Hart sd ale, New York Known affectionately by his classmates as " Baldy, " Dave hails from a little town just outside of New York City. He brought with him to the Academy his swimming ability which made him a mainstay on the Battalion swimming and water polo teams. While here, his casual, efficient bearing and respectful manner gained the respect of his classmates. Throughout the years, Dave could be seen perched at his desk lamp cursing his slide rule and the academic departments. But, although he studied a lot, his mind was often occupied with thoughts of Norwalk, Connecticut. A good practical joke on his roommate was not uncommon, and he found his favorite relaxation drinking and singing at a crowded table in his favorite Rathskeller. Dave, with his outstanding personal ap- pearance and tact will make an exemplary Marine officer. CHARLES ROBERT NEWKIRK New York, New York Charlie came to USNA from Cardinal Hayes High School in the Bronx, bringing a marked accent with him. Here he immediately joined the Newman Club and settled down to four years of Academy life, during which he developed into quite an expert on Rock and Roll, as well as on girls. It seems he had a girl in every port, including the Yard. Proving himself consistently up to the academic challenge, he was equally com- petent on the athletic field, where he helped Club II win the Brigade soccer championship early in his stay. Charlie ' s joviality and buoyant spirit never failed to lift the spirits of those around him. Not the least bit backward, he always had plenty of friends and will find many more in Naval Air. Second Battalion 319 KEN WHITING NISEWANER Bethesda, Mfiryland Ken, a Navy junior, came to the Academy via Bullis Prep, with a burning desire to follow the footsteps of Captain Nisewaner. Although his grades were not quite Supt. ' s List material, Weener ' s blue and gold spirit of competition and ability to get the job done left nothing to be desired. An avid sportsman indoors and out, his athletic ability was of the highest caliber, as were his ratings with the girls. Weener was never one to miss a good party, and when not dragging could usually be found working out to hold down his position as catcher on the varsity baseball team. His individualism failed to detract from his military bearing and he was outdone by few at inspection. Only the top of the ladder would satisfy Ken and we ' re sure he ' ll attain it whatever course he chooses to follow. GEORGE FRED NOLAN San Pedro, California George gave up a carefree college life to come to the Naval Academy. Having this to his credit, he left San Pedro, a small but famous town near Smogsville, USA, for the sometimes sunny shores of the Severn to excel in bigger and better things. Holding a steady course. Rip plowed through academics, meeting every resistance with an all out effort. It was a pleasure to have him on your sport squad because his never-give-up attitude and spirit made victory sweeter and defeat a little more bearable. Never at a loss for something to do, he filled his spare time representing the Log and Splinter, circulating the Drag ' s Handbook, and logging in pad time. Weekends found George in the company of a charming and beautiful girl. Whether above, on, or below the surface, he will be an asset to the Service. CHARLES PATRICK O ' LEARY, JR. Hempstead, Long Island, New York Turning down several scholarships for an opportunity to begin his Naval career immediately after high school. Chuck came to us from Long Island, that land of beautiful young ladies and easy access to the " City. " On and off the playing fields, the " Leprechaun ' s " quick and subtle sense of humor was a delight to all who knew him. Although sports and company activities took a major portion of his time. Chuck still managed to stand in the top quarter of his class academically. A conscientious and devoted person. Chuck seldom fails at that which he attempts. His ability, joined with his driving force and fighting Irish spirit, indicate that the Navy has gained a fine career officer. 320 Class of 1963 GERALD HENRY OLENDZENSKI Needham, Massachusetts Gerry entered the Naval Academy, after spending two years in the fleet, with definite goals in mind. Through the years it was not hard to se e that the standards which he set for his academic and aptitude stand- ings were high. Because of his leadership ability Gerry was elected as his company ' s honor representative to the Brigade Honor Committee, a position of great responsibility at the Naval Academy. On the lighter side Gerry was not lacking either. Anyone who has run into this tough lineman on the 150 lb. varsity team knows only too well that he is a great competitive sportsman. Ski, as he is commonly known, was constantly kidded about his Boston accent. Just ask him to say " park your car in Harvard yard. " With his great potential and drive, Gerry is destined to succeed in any endeavor. PETER STUART OPTEKAR Midland Park, New Jersey Soon after Pete Optekar came to the Naval Academy from the enlisted ranks of the Marine Corps, it was evident that he was going to make a name for himself. Pete will be best remembered for his athletic capabilities, which included football and Brigade boxing. The former Sergeant admits that he had rarely participated in contact sports before entering the Academy, but through determination and a strong will to win he earned himself a starting position as a guard on the football team. As a boxer, Pete thrilled the Brigade time and again in championship bouts. In addition to being an avid sportsman, Pete was an active member of the Foreign Relations Club. After graduating, Pete will receive a warm welcome upon his return to the Marine Corps. DON GILBERT PALEN Greenwich, Connecticut Don came to the Academy via the fleet and NAPS. His New England upbringing was reflected in his interests, jazz. Squash Racquets, sports cars, and yachting. Although academics were certainly not his forte, he managed to " pay the rent " each semester. As a varsity member of the radiator squad, Don did his best to keep from becoming too embroiled in the sports world, and with a few minor exceptions, was completely success- ful. A schooner man both on the ocean and in the pubs, he often combined the two interests on a weekend sail to one of Chesapeake Bay ' s ports-of- call. The Annapolis-Newport Race and the Bermuda Race provided some of his most enjoyable summer days. Don will be best remembered for his cheerfulness. He would always find something to laugh at and probably hatch one of his infamous puns. This cheerfulness and habit of doing a precise, thorough job will no doubt make him welcome in any wardroom. Second Battalion 321 ALSON HUNTLY PARKER, III Brockport, New York " Hunt, " as he is known by friends in the hall, or " Butch " as he is referred by many of the soccer squad, is the product of a small rural home town. He found the transition from high school to Navy life bewildering at times, but always interesting and rewarding. Soccer occupied most of his free time at the Academy; however, he did find time to become a member of the French Club and was able to devote sufficient time to academics so that his name appeared on the Superintendent ' s List. With his intelligence and attitude, Hunt will continue to demonstrate the ability which has earned him a place of respect among his classmates. JAMES KELLY PATTERSON South Pasadena, California Jim hails from the Pacific side of the country. Having been a Navy Junior for the first eighteen years of his life, he has seen a good portion of the world, but Jim still claims the " best is in the west. " After graduating from South Pasadena High School in California, Jim spent a year at Pasa- dena City College, where he majored in pre-engineering. Upon reporting to the Academy, he found it relatively easy adjusting to the demanding routine of his new home. Sportwise, he enjoyed competing on the intra- mural level. He was a member of company cross-country, battalion squash, and Softball teams. Jim says that his real love in life is aviation. He supported the Aeronautical Club and insists that the greatest time he ever had was at Pensacola during his Second Class Aviation Summer. An avid model airplane builder and a man with a good number of flying hours under his belt, Jim is now a full fledged member of the " Navy Air is mighty fair " set. RUFUS JUDSON PEARSON, III Bethesda, Maryland A Navy junior, Jud finds it hard to call any one place home. He came to the Naval Academy from Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda, Maryland. A pretty good student, Jud found Bull exams to be his number one enemy. Sports have always been his first love and occupy most of his free time. But for Jud, just as for most other midshipmen, leave time and liberty parties were welcomed, relished, remembered, and repeated at the slightest opportunity. Still, perhaps more so for Jud than for most classmates, the future was never forgotten either. Now as he steps out to take his place in the Navy, the moment he ' s dreamed of for so many years, we salute him. 322 Class of 1 963 JOHN THOMAS PESSONEY Palestine, Texas Tom, a big typical Texan, made a big hit with everyone at USNA. At the same time both hard-working and easy-going he always managed to hang onto the Superintendent ' s List, with Math and Science his specialties. Great amounts of time and effort were devoted to Reef Points and to pulling classmates out of academic bogs. Size and speed made him a stand- out in fieldball and battalion lacrosse and football. While on the quieter side, he was active in NAFAC and the Newman Club. Tom never sweated the girls a great deal but always had a good looking drag for any occasion. Known everywhere for his bullwhip, he never got around to using it on the plebes as intended, but he did acquire a lot of skill at picking locusts off the furniture. A true gentleman, Tom will long be remembered and well appreciated in the fleet. JERALD LEE PINNEKER Milwaukee, Wisconsin While attending high school in the home of five breweries, Jerry spent most of his free time at the nearby airport, letting his interest in aviation grow and grow. After not making the Academy on his first try, Jerry joined the Naval Reserve and went into submarines. At the same time he attended an extension of the University of Wisconsin, where the law made him a part of the local ROTC unit. This year proved well spent for he received an appointment through his reserve unit. After plebe year Jerry began taking " dealer " training by selling Logs, Drag Handbooks, and WRNV goods. He was always encouraging someone to requisition from his graduation pay for some blue and gold wares. Sports-wise Jerry was standard equipment of the cross country team for the first two years, but later seasons saw him getting involved in company and battalion sports of higher prestige. He especially enjoyed 2 c summer with its flying by day and other activities by night. Naturally, Jerry ' s plans lie in Na 7 Air. We know he ' ll succeed in this and any other venture he undertakes. Our best wishes are with him in his future. JERAULD STUART PRATHER Charlotte, North Carolina Jerry, always the Southern gentleman, had exquisite taste in wine, women, and song. His large stack of fine classical and modern jazz records was always open for loan. As far as women go, Jerry changed them often. Military history was his hobby before entering the Academy. It is even said that upper classmen came to Jerry to find answers to their questions. Jerry took an active interest in WRNV and was instrumental in helping to provide the fine popular music concerts as we have had year after year. In the years after graduation we look for Jerry to fly many hours for the Navy. He tells us he ' s going to do it by hook or by crook. Second Battalion 323 ROBERT FRANCIS PRICE Fort Benton, Montana Having come to the Academy from Bullis Prep, Skip easily made friends and was known by his classmates as " The China Clipper. " A hustling halfback on the battalion and company 150-lb football teams, Skip made many sensational plays; however, a dislocated shoulder and subsequent operation ended his football capers. Skip also did an outstand- ing job as a catcher and shortstop of the company Softball team. As a member of the Public Relations Committee, Skip spent many Saturday afternoons in the press box assisting the coverage of Navy teams. Always having that certain way with the young ladies, this red-haired Midshipman got into many social predicaments, including three dates for an Army game. Skip ' s ever present sense of humor always brought laughter to his classmates. His deep interest and first-hand knowledge of the Navy will make Skip a successful officer in the fleet and a credit to the Naval Academy. Holdeniille THOMAS GENE PUCKETT Oklahoma Tom came to us after a year at Stephen F. Austin College in Sherman, Texas, where he excelled in football and student activities. Tom, like most of his classmates, found plebe summer to be quite different from past experiences. However, it didn ' t take him long to become acquainted with " the system " and to realize its importance. When the Brigade returned, his quick thinking and ready wit were quickly brought to the attention of the upperclass, and he was always in demand any time there was a company party. A good all-round competitor, Tom played on many championship company teams. What a team lacked in ability, Tom made up for in spirit, with a word of encouragement for everyone. Tom ' s well rounded personality has made many friends for him throughout the Brigade, as well as with members of the opposite sex. These, together with his personal character and sincerity, are great assets and should enable success to follow him in whatever branch of the service he chooses. DARYL LUCIAN RABERT Neffs, Pennsylrania Daryl came to the Naval Academy from little Moravian College, which, like his home town, is located in the Pennsylvania Dutch region. Daryl ' s favorite pastimes included eating, sleeping, writing letters, and listening to music, as well as associating with the opposite sex. His other interests included the Public Relations Club and the German Club. A hard worker in all that he does, Daryl was one of the outstanding athletes in the company, playing on two Brigade Championship volleyball teams. A welcome addition to any group, Daryl ' s warm humor and friendly smile made him many friends here. A good party man, Daryl will be a welcome addition wherever duty calls. 324 Class of 1963 FRANK MICHAEL RADIK Elyria, Ohio Known as a man with a keen sense of humor, Frank Hvened up many dull moments here at USNA. Frank spent two years at Ohio State University and was in Delta Tau Delta fraternity before arriving here on the Severn. He played plebe football, but due to injuries and advancing old age, decided to give up varsity football. He has worked hard and given freely of his time to the wrestling team while serving them as manager. Academics have never been easy for Frank, but he has shown an indefatigable determination to succeed. Frank has an extremely like- able personality and combined with his quick wit, he has cultivated many lasting friends. Music is one of his favorite pastimes. With his easy-going nature and determination, he will be a credit to the service or any other aspect of life he undertakes. DONALD RAY RAULSTON Tulsa, Oklahoma Plebe year opened wide the eyes of this hero from the Severn, and there were times that he had to retreat to the safety of the blue trampoline. " Stick " came to the Academy straight from high school and in no time at all, established a reputation among his classmates in academics and athletics. Being a consistent and hard worker, he strived to maintain a Superintendent ' s List average. A little tall, Ray could often be found on the volleyball court or fieldball field. His pleasant and cheerful manner always assured him of success and many lasting friends at the Academy. Upon graduation, he plans to spend a year in Navy line, and then go on to a career in Naval Aviation flying the newest Navy patrol planes. DONALD LLOYD REEVES Haddonfield, Netv Jersey Don came to us from Haddonfield High School in New Jersey where he was an outstanding athlete. At Navy he continued his athletic prowess while playing varsity 150-pound football and lacrosse. Those long hot days at the rifle range during plebe summer afforded him the oppor- tunity of winning his expert pistol medal. Plebe year found him playing saxophone for the concert band. His musical talent lay not only in the sax, for he could also be heard playing the piano, harmonica, or ukulele during his free time. Don ' s smile, wit, and high spirits proved to be indispensable to morale during his four years. After graduation he will be wearing his brand new shoulder boards to Pensacola where he will earn his wings of gold. Second Battalion 325 RONALD ERNEST REIHEL Berwyn, Illinois Ron was born in Berwyn, Illinois, where he graduated from J. Sterling Morton High School as an honor student and star athlete in base- ball, football, and gymnastics. Entering the Academy directly from high school, he soon established himself here as well. As a plebe he participated in gymnastics and led the plebe baseball team to a great season. As an upperclassman he became known as " Navy ' s Little Gun, " leading off and playing third base for Max Bishop ' s fabulous baseball team. Always hustling, in academics as well as in sports, Ron maintained his academic stars and enjoyed the privileges of the Superintendent ' s List through the years. Besides being a member of the Academy Science Seminar, he over- loaded his schedule with additional electives, majoring in nuclear physics. He has always enjoyed studying and is looking forward to post graduate school. SIDNEY PAUL REVERE, JR. New Orleans, Louisiana Paul blew in from the deep South, extolling the virtues of southern belles, bird dogs, cfeole gumbo, and Pat O ' Briens ' s Hurricanes. The Academy was quite a change from " The City That Care Forgot " but an easy going attitude and good sense of humor helped him to hold his own in academics. His favorite subjects were math and engineering. Squash, handball, company football, and ocean sailing helped keep Paul busy after classes were over. During plebe year, the upperclass were quick to note his famous name and made him the scapegoat for many jokes and pranks about the original " Midnight Rider. " Because of his ability to get along with people, he has a tremendous number of friends throughout the Brigade. In Paul, the Navy will no doubt find a hard working junior officer. DONALD JAMES REYNOLDS Beloit, Wisconsin Big Jim, the tall Midwesterner from Beloit and Marquette Uni- versity, signed on the dotted line and spent two years with the Marines in Okinawa, where he found the life he wanted to live. The Marine Corps, girls, and good food are his weak points. Well liked by all his classmates for his good sense of humor and his friendly manner, Jim never got lonely back in the hall. He was never at a loss for mail, and he spent many a day dragging, too. Able in sports, he helped boost several battalion and company teams to Brigade championships. Although good with his slide rule, his favorite subjects were in the department of English, History and Government. His favorite daydream of the future: reviewing the parade on a Wednesday afternoon, as Commandant of the Marine Corps. 326 Class of 1 963 JAMES EDWARD PATRICK RING Hyattsville, Maryland Early one morning in July of 59, Jim left his home in Hyattsville, Maryland, and departed for his new life on the sacred shores of the Severn. He entered this life wide-eyed after his high school days at Gonzaga High School in Washington, D. C, and one year as a member of the NROTC at Holy Cross College in Worcester, Mass. With this naval seasoning behind him, Jim found plebe year smooth sailing. During young- ster year, his eyes were opened to the joys of dragging, and he could be found participating in this activity while not studying. In sports, Jim became quite active on the intramural level after paddling with the 150 lb. crew team in his plebe year. His dependability and desire are sure to make him a success in whatever he does in the future. PETER LEE ROLLOSSON Little Rock, Arkansas Pete spent his pre-Naval Academy days in Texas, California, and finally Arkansas. Graduating with eighteen other seniors, Pete was the only graduate to continue his education. The lure of a naval career brought him here to the banks of the Severn. With a locker full of pictures to re- mind him of the good old days, Pete plodded his way through plebe and youngster years. He then quickened his pace but still believed in mixing work with relaxation. While not a star student or a national champion athlete, Pete was able to pull his load in the academics and do his job on the Battalion soccer and football teams. He could also be found turning his attention to the Brigade Activities Committee and the 1963 Lucky Bag. His love of cars and girls took up any other free time he happened to have. ARTHUR EUGENE ROPER Garden City, Kansas Art was well known throughout the Brigade for his fancy diving for the Navy swimming team. These were not the only laurels earned as he has spent most of his four years here on the Superfntendent ' s List. In fact, on Saturday mornings Art not only shined his anchors, but had to brighten up a pair of stars. During the fall and spring, Art has led several intramural teams to very successful seasons. His interest in Naval Aviation and hard work here at USNA show that Art will be an asset to the Navy when he dons those golden wings soon after graduation. Second Battalion 327 EDWARD ABERLE RUCKNER, JR. Alexandria, Virginia Coming to us from Kent School, Ned, or " Rux " as he was known to his classmates, was no stranger to the regimented life. With a father of flag rank, he was no stranger to the Navy either. In the autumns " Rux " put his high school soccer to work, and he made the plebe and JV squads. He kept right on running in the winter, gaining many points for the company cross country team. Ned ' s intellectual abilities enabled him to whip off homework and still keep up a large volume of correspondence with his various relatives. With his always friendly, jovial personality, we are sure Ned will follow in his father ' s footsteps to fame in the Navy. For " Rux " it ' s " Bell bottom trousers, coat of Navy blue, he ' ll climb the rigging like his daddy used to do. " LARS HOKAN RUNQUIST Croton-On-Hudson, New York Born and raised in Sweden, Lars was surely the Brigade ' s only Swede with a New York accent. On those weekdays when his pad was empty, Lars could usually be found playing either squash, tennis, or soccer. Having returned to Europe for his leave after Youngster Cruise, Lars decided he was at a lack for words South of Copenhagen, so on his return, he decided to overload in German. Always a good student, Lars was con- sistently kept off the Superintendent ' s List by having an excess of de- merits. Keeping up his reputation with the fairer sex, Lars had the rare distinction of having his company officer reprimand him for being too much of a ladies ' man. Graduation should see the " Smiling Swede " on his way to Pensacola, where he will be flying Navy jets and his own Corvette. DONALD EARL SAIDMAN Washington, D. C. Don, living in Washington, D. C, was one of the few men who took the weather at the Academy with a smile. As a matter of fact, Don took almost everything with a smile. A rather easygoing, quiet individual, Don spent most of plebe year on the water, rowing with the crew team. Known to many for his sensational, dry humor, Don was always a most enjoyable person to be with. As far as other sports go, Don played com- pany soccer and cross-country. He was also a member of a championship battalion track team. Academics were a breeze for Don, especially math. Always found munching on something, Don became quite a connoisseur of good food. Whatever part of the service Don joins, he will be sure of success. 328 Class of 1963 JAMES JOSEPH SCANLON Hyattsville, Maryland Jim, originally a native of New York, comes to us from the shores of the Anacostia River in Hyattsville, Maryland. Graduating number two in his class from St. Anthony High School in Washington, D. C, Jim enrolled here with " stars in his eyes and water behind his ears. " Early voted by the members of the upperclass as " Most Unlikely to Succeed, " he has long since come down out of the clouds and even waged a success- ful, though arduous, battle with the Science Department. Jim loves sports of all kinds, but participates mostly on the informal level. He has taken an active part in everything from battalion boxing and company football to a tour of duty with the YP squadron, and would probably make someone a very good recreation officer. Although accepting the way things are done around here, Jim vows, if ever selected as Superintendent of the Naval Academy, to grant the first and second class more weekends, delay reveille one full hour, and strike fresh garden kale from the menu. CRAWFORD WARICK SCOTT Gatesville, Texas Bismarck once said, " To youth I have but three words of counsel — Work, Work, Work. " Scotty has taken this advice and is not happy unless he is working. The salvo of regular academics wasn ' t enough for Scotty, and he resorted to taking several overloads. To round out his twenty-five hour day, Scotty joined the YP Squadron and the radio club, and he en- joyed a reputation in the YP Squadron as one of the foremost experts on the engineering plant. With this full schedule, it soon became necessary for Scotty to establish himself as an expert on " blanket late lights. " Our young scholar was always willing to take a break to dispense some of his broad knowledge about academics, women, bridge, or Texas. We know Scotty will be a prominent asset to any outfit he joins, as long as there is knowledge to be learned and a tough job to be done. CHARLES FRANCIS SELL Arlington, Virginia Chuck, a Navy junior, lived in many places and attended many schools before settling down in Mother Bancroft ' s halls. Navy destined all the way. Chuck joined the Navy two weeks after graduation from Wash- ington-Lee High School. When he found his eyes temporarily would not allow him into the Naval Academy Preparatory School, he took the long way home by going to the Military Academy Preparatory School. While at USNA as a confessed, happily pinned mid. Chuck could often be found engaged in weekend extracurricular activities; however, during the week he spent time in various sports including battalion wrestling, com- pany cross-country, and varsity dinghy sailing. Chuck has won his battles with academics, principally the science department, and looks forward to a career in submarines. He will be a welcome and capable addition to the fleet. Second Battalion 329 THOMAS RUSSELL SHERIDAN Charleston, West Virginia Tom came straight from high school to Navy from the hills of West Virginia. He could call many places his home, but the one place that never changed was his cottage on the Potomac. There he founded a love for boats and water sports, which carried through to the Academy. Al- though standing high in academics, he was never one to study so hard that he had no time for outside activities such as the Gun Club and Newman Club. No slouch on the dance floor either, he could always be counted on to show a drag a good time on the weekends. Good at any sport, Tom tried squash and could always be found standing high on the company ladder. His athletic ability was also displayed on the battalion handball and swimming teams, as well as the company basketball team. With these attributes we know Tom will be a success at whatever he decides to do and will always be remembered as a good friend. EDWARD JOSEPH SHIELDS Palo Alto, Pennsylvania One of the athletes from Pennsylvania, Ed came to Navy having spent a year at BuUis Prep, lettering in baseball and football. Previously, Ed had captained the baseball, basketball, and football teams of his high school. The strong desire to become one of Navy ' s varsity football players and a capable mariner of the YP fleet brought Ed to USNA. Not only has he starred on the gridiron, but also in the intramural sports of softball and basketball. Though he has had his ups and downs (mostly downs) with the Executive and Academic Departments, his will to win and determina- tion have helped him to survive. This same determination and will to win will surely contribute much to Ed ' s success as an officer in our armed services. WALTER FRANK SICKEL Plaistow, New Hampshire On a warm summer morning in 1959, Walt bade farewell to Plaistow, N. H. and headed for Annapolis to fulfill a lifelong ambition. Arriving straight from high school, Walt found the academics a challenge soon mastered, and he stood near the top of his class. Thanks to his pro- ficiency in academics, Walt found plenty of time to pursue the fairer sex and excel in company and battalion sports. With the combination of Glee Club and Chapel Choir trips and Supt. ' s list weekends, Walt was rarely found in Crab Town on weekends. When asked about his main interest, he is always quick to reply, " Graduation. " Walt ' s keen sense of humor and his genuine devotion made his four year stay enjoyable for him and a little more pleasant for everyone around him. Best of luck to a swell guy — although he probably won ' t need it since he always gives his all. 330 Class of 1 963 ALLAN RAY SMELLEY Camden, Texas Tex hails from the " Big Thicket " of East Texas and calls Camden his home. He came to us from high school via the Navy and NAPS; at the former he lettered in all three major sports. Here, he went for varsity track and company cross country. High grades came easy and you ' d fre- quently see Tex sailing, working on his hi-fi, dragging, or indulging in a heated discussion of some issue or another. With a cheerful attitude and a hearty manner, Tex had no trouble acquiring friends or femmes and is sure to be a welcome addition to any wardroom as well as a good officer. Good luck, Tex, and all the best in the future! I JAMES HARVEY SPRUANCE, III Wilmington, Delaware Jim, unfortunately no relation to the famous admiral of the same name, spent his junior and senior high school years at Cheshire Academy in Connecticut before entering the Naval Academy as the youngest mem- ber of the Class of 1963. One could always see big Jim doing a double crossover with his sticks while playing in the Drum and Bugle Corps. Much of his spare time was spent rehearsing for the many half time shows put on by the " Hellcats. " Jim was also quite active socially, and hardly a day would pass when he would not receive two or three perfumed letters. Jim played some football, but a spring knee injury ended his " poolie " career. Battalion tennis was another of Jim ' s favorite activities. With his wide grin and jovial personality, Jim made many friends at the Academy. Whatever service Jim chooses upon graduation, he undoubtedly will adjust easily and make a successful officer. Second Battalion 331 WILLIAM JOHN STEWART Chula Vista, California Bill came to USNA from God ' s Country on the California-Mexican border, but only after spending a lot of time seeing the world as a Navy Junior. After some close shaves with the Engineering department, Bill buckled down to the tough academics of the academy, even employing a California cactus as a good luck charm during second class year. Bill possesses a tremendous amount of drive, which enabled him to intensify his efforts by sheer will power when necessary. Bill came to Mother Bancroft with very little knowledge of the fairer sex, but he soon made up for lost time. The same warm smile, sincerity, and honesty which won him a place in the hearts of his classmates won him the hearts of many female admirers. In addition to his interest in world affairs and good looking drags. Bill was well known for his efforts on cross-country course. ERWIN FRED STORZ South Orange, New Jersey Erwin came to the Academy after a successful year at Columbia Preparatory School. Best known for his outstanding ability on the football field, Erwin also used this ability in other sports after the fall season. Not one to devote himself only to sports he showed the same enthusiasm in other outside activities. Although academics were not easy, " Erwin excelled in this phase of Academy life also. As his classmates can testify, Erwin was always ready with a quick wit that kept things moving during the slower times of the year. Throughout his stay at the Naval Academy, this man has gained the respect of all who have come in contact with him. This respect combined with a rare natural leadership quality will carry over to his career. Erwin will make a fine officer. MICHAEL DINSMORE STOUT Leoniister, Massachusetts Mike came to USNA from Scranton, Pennsylvania. He graduated from high school there, and continues to call ' that city home. Inheriting his talent with words from his father, a well known journalist and editor, he has devoted the major portion of his academic efforts to the Language and English, History and Government departments, ranking quite high in both. His extracurricular activities included plebe debating and work with the Masqueraders. Despite his literary interest and his overload in language, Mike managed to make the Superintendent ' s List and to lend great support to battalion and company sports teams, of which several were brigade champions. Mike will be remembered by his classmates for his quietly friendly manner, his willingness to assist anyone who needed his help, and his deep devotion to the Academy. 332 Class of 1963 IMANTS ALFREDS STRAUPENIEKS Willimantic, Connecticut Born in Latvia during the rise of totalitarian power, AI survived the turmoil, hunger, and devastation of World War II in Europe. Then, without knowing any English, he came to the United States where he graduated from grade and high school. He entered the Academy from the regular Navy to further his professional education. Although never a quitter, Al has had a hard time with other than professional subjects while here. Participating in the German Club, Art Club, Photo Club, Foreign Relations Club, Antiphonal Choir, and the Log shortened study hours, as did sports, all of which Al tried to master. His favorite goal was a Brigade boxing title, while other pet projects included track and instructing swim- ming to his fellow amphibians. On weekends you could see Al occupied with a tennis racket, sailboat, paint brush, Leica, or just strolling along the moonlit Severn with his favorite Princess. JACKSON RONALD TERWILLIGER Arlington, Virginia Twig came from Arlington after spending one year at George Washington University. He brought with him the reputation of being one of the finest athletes in the Washington, D. C, area, and Ron lived up to his reputation. Picking up letters in basketball and baseball, he proved to be one of the best athletes in the class. Twig also has been consistent in his appearances on the Superintendent ' s List and is one of the higher academic men. His number one hobby is listening to music; and accord- ing to Twig, the only real music is Rock and Roll. Ron ' s desire and sin- cerity have won him many friends and will prove to be the beginning of an outstanding career in the Na y. GARY LEE THOMAS Clearfield, Pennsylvania Hailing from Clearfield, Pennsylvania, Gary came to Navy known for his wrestling proficiency. He didn ' t disappoint anyone either, for he was well known in the wrestling loft while at the Academy. Possibly even as well known was his ability to make friends, for this certainly was not hard for Gary. With his carefree personality and cheerful outlook, Gary plugged through plebe year and the last three years without much trouble except for a few bouts with academics. A constant worker, Gary possessed a deep devotion to his future career. His various interests carried into many diversified fields ranging from literature to sports. In the future, Gary is bound to succeed in any endeavor whatever it may be, not only because he is a well liked person, but also because of a special type of perseverance. Second Battalion 333 OLEN DENNIS THOMPSON Monkton, Maryland Not wishing to leave his native state of Maryland, O. D. became one of the integral parts of USNA. Hailing from Monkton, Maryland, Olen carried through the gates, not only his subtle humor, but also a continual and open friendliness. His determined desire to excel in any undertaking brought him through the four year strain of the Academy. Realizing that the future held the confinement of sea duty, O. D. put some extra mileage on his legs by running varsity cross-country and track, where again his determined desire to win took him to the top. When Olen takes his place in the fleet, he will be well qualified to assume his career responsibilities. Qualities of personality and leadership which brought him through the past four years will stand him in good stead in the years to come. JOHN CHARLES THORN Bordentown, N£.u Jersey Jack came to the Academy after spending a year at Sullivan Prep School. He brought with him a superb sense of humor, a winning per- sonality, and th e desire to excel. Armed with these weapons. Jack had comparatively smooth sailing during his stay here. Throughout the four years he was very active in company sports and activities, and his natural linguistic ability kept him quite busy as a member of the French Club. In spite of all these outstanding qualities, Jack was always best known by his fine taste in drags. Whether he was sailing, swimming, or just sitting, Jack ' s liberty time was usually spent in the company of a fine example of the fairer sex. Jack has always looked forward to the career of a Naval officer, and we know that the Navy always has and always will look for- ward to accepting men of Jack ' s caliber into the fleet. MARTIN JAMES TILLAPAUGH Columbus, Ohio Marty came to the Naval Academy after a varied and stimulating youth. Being the son of an Air Force officer, Marty has lived in many locations throughout the world. Immediately before attending Navy, he spent a year at the University of Nebraska, and a year at the Columbian Prep School. While at the Academy, Marty vigorously and enthusiastically pursued extracurricular activities as a member of the PRC and as an out- standing player on the company sports teams. The academics at the Naval Academy were no easy battle for Marty. Through determination and per- sistent application, he was able to maintain the required standards of pro- ficiency. Wherever Marty goes he will be known by his sincere, friendly smile, his desire to assist the troubled man, and his will to succeed. 334 Class of 1 963 RICHARD DENNY TOMLIN Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Denny is a Navy Junior with many duty stations behind him. In spite of his Navy background, he has chosen " high and dry " Oklah oma as his home state. From his choice of states, compHcations have arisen for Den. As everyone knows, all Oklahomans are part Indian and furthermore Den ' s father is a " Chief " — U. S. Navy type. As a result of his English- Irish lineage, he has had to add Comanche. The nickname " Injun " was given to him during plebe year and has carried over during his tour of duty at USNA. Foreign Languages is one of Injun ' s special interests. He has gained a fair working knowledge of French, Russian, and German and has participated in the various language clubs while at the Academy. Eying a Naval Language School after graduation, he hopes to go into intelligence or Embassy duty. CHARLES NEWTON TOZER Ramona, California Hailing from Ramona, California, Chuck came to the Naval Academy via the Regular Navy and via the University of California at Riverside. An excellent broad jumper, he belonged to the varsity track team two seasons of the year. With academics no great source of trouble, Chuck has found time to be in the company of various charming young ladies on weekends. Set-backs were kept in their place by a ready smile and a sardonic sense of humor. Combined with drive and initiative, these attributes will provide the Naval Service with a capable and conscientious officer of which it can be proud. WILLARD LEE UMPHREY Presque Isle, Maine Bill, an Air Force Junior, entered from Limestone, Maine, a booming town of 1100. He is used to traveling around and his Youngster Cruise proved a disappointment when the only port of call turned out to be Norfolk. Bill breezed through plebe year, taking off on sailing weekends in the fall and spring and hibernating on the plebe gymnastic training tables during the winter months. Most breezy afternoons found him out sailing on the Severn in dinghies although he did climb aboard a yawl long enough to win the Youngster Race and to make a couple of ocean races. Bill has worn stars here at the academy for his outstanding academic performance. Still, Bill ' s number one problem during the second class campaign seemed to be squeezing in dragging time between regattas and quizzes in his eight subjects per semester. In whatever branch of the Navy Bill enters, we are sure he will have a fine career. Second Battalion 335 EMILIO EDWARD VARANINI, III Sacramento, California ' Doc ' came to the Academy from California, bringing with him a great interest in sports. Many opponents who faced him on the soccer and football fields will tell of his ability and hard drive in athletics. Although he excelled in the English, History, and Government Department, ' Doc ' will also be remembered for his constant battle for survival with the En- gineering Department. He proved his right to be a Midshipman, though, and his friends were proud of ' Doc ' for his ability to produce under these severe strains. Although he needed his free time, he nonetheless supported the activities of the Brigade as a member of the Catholic Choir and the Italian Club. His determination to make the grade and succeed as a Mid- shipman will undoubtedly carry over into his career as an officer and will assure him complete success after graduation in whatever field he enters. DAVID ALLEN VETTER Omaha, Nebraska After high school in Omaha, Nebraska, Dave journeyed to the East to prep school knowing that his only ambition was an insistent desire to enter the Academy. After a year of supreme effort, Dave finally realized his ambition. From that moment on he strove towards one goal, that of becoming a man of high ideals and of deep dedication to country. While at the Academy, Dave was active in many company sports, including soccer and fieldball. Through perseverance and desire, Dave became a proficient athlete. In addition to his athletic endeavors, Dave always drove himself tirelessly in his efforts to excel in academics and personal appearance. This continuous attempt for perfection, coupled with a likeable personality, should stand Dave in good stead as he pursues his service career. FREDERICK WELLES VOGEL Garden City, New Yor-k Voted by his high school as most likely to succeed, Fred (or Vogues, as he is affectionately known to his classmates) leaped into the Navy with a barbell in one hand and a lacrosse stick in the other. He has since become, " if not the best athlete, at least the best in health. " However, for at least one season, he was the Brigade ' s highest scorer in Battalion lacrosse. Always the life of the party, as anyone who was ever in a cruise group with him will readily testify, Fred will long be remembered for the fabulous times he organized and the beautiful women he dated. He also had the uncanny knack of making people feel good just when things were going badly, even when they were going badly for him. In addition to being a real man ' s man, Fred ' s ability to keep his sense of humor will take him a long way toward his goals. 336 Class of 1963 PETER GEORGE VREELAND Chappaqua, New York Pete found his way to the Academy by way of St. Mary ' s High in Katonah, New York. A varsity basketballer for three years there, he strove towards that goal here. When not playing basketball he could be found on the tennis or volleyball courts, in the steerage, or in the pad. Attention to academics was not one of his noticeable attributes, and at exam time his contributions to Tecumseh were a well founded investment. Deep- ly interested in the social development of his classmates, Pete willingly sacrificed his time to arrange drags for those who were without contacts. He did quite well in the Cupid department himself, however, and could always be found in the company of the fairer sex. Pete has an unending supply of friendship and good will which enables him to associate freely with almost everyone. Whichever service he chooses upon graduation, Pete will be looked upon as an outstanding officer and individual. MICHAEL THOMAS WALLACE Staten Island, New York Immediately after graduating from high school in Staten Island, Mike stowed his zip gun and packed his bags to head for Annapolis. Having been observed by Navy scouts, he at once went out for plebe base- ball as a pitcher, and has since progressed to the varsity level. Being a very good athlete and having a wide interest in sports, he also contributed to the company basketball team. With his fantastic sense of humor and wit, Mike is a riot in any crowd. Tales of New York plus a string of sea stories as long as his pitching arm give him a remarkable line with the opposite sex, though he is pretty well decided on his one-and-only. In musical taste, he is one of the most rabid and unashamed fans of " rock and roll " in the Brigade. Mike ' s future holds a career in Naval Air and a little white house later on. Admired and respected by those who know him, he is sure to have a long and fruitful career. ARTHUR ERNEST WALTHER Fullerton, California Art came to Severn ' s shores via a SecNAV appointment after attend- ing the Naval Prep School. He calls Fullerton, California, home. Claiming there is no place quite like California, he is looking forward to being able to once again spend some time there. A confirmed hotrodder, he desires a hot car, a pretty girl beside him, and an ice-cold shot of Southern Comfort — with just a squeeze of lime. Convinced that the only real navy is the Silent Service, he is looking forward to attending sub school shortly after graduation — strange for a man so crazy about sunshine. Academics, tennis, and waterskiing seem to be his primary interests. He only found continuous fault with one thing while at the Academy, the whole system. " Things will be different when I ' m CNO, " he says. Good Luck, Art. Second Battalion 337 JOEL MARVIN WARSHAW Hackensack, New Jersey Joe comes to the Academy from Hackensack, New Jersey, via a stretch in " the Corps. " While here, Joe decided that higher skirts are a luxury and higher Bull grades a necessity. Joe ' s wit and raucous singing voice (coupled with an absolute non-recall of lyrics) has provided much merriment for his classmates. Of course, when it came to liberty, whether of the summer variety or the more usual Annapolis version, Joe was at the center of more than one rousing good time. Joe ' s first love is still the Marine Corps, and he plans to return to it immediately. DUDLEY MACK WEATHERS Loretto, Tennessee A native rebel from Tennessee, Mack came to the Academy straight from high school where he lettered in basketball. Although coming from a small town, he managed to adjust quickly to the hustle and bustle of plebe year. Mack then turned all his energies to his studies and spent many a night under a blanket taking " late lights, " striving to maintain a Super- intendent ' s List average. His easy going manner and infectious laugh made Mack a great favorite with his classmates. Although most of his free time was spent studying, he could often be found pursuing his favorite sport of basketball. A regular movie fiend, Mack could be found almost every Saturday at a flick in town or in the yard. After graduation, Dudley hopes to be found riding in the back seat of the Navy ' s newest attack aircraft. RICHARD LaSERRE WEIDMAN Milwaukee, Wisconsin Rich came to USNA straight from Milwaukee University School in Milwaukee. Although he found the life here quite different from his former one in the " Nation ' s Beer Capital, " he soon adjusted to his new life and during the next four years he held his own in the continual battle with the academic departments. Math and Bull were his favorite subjects. Even though Light-weight crew received most of his time after classes, he enjoys all sports and can usually be found on the tennis courts on a nice Sunday afternoon. Although Rich usually was not one for publicity, we all know that the Air Force game in I960 proved an exception. His easy going manner and a great sense of humor made him many friends and no doubt will continue to do so throughout his career. If all goes well, after graduation Rich plans to hang his hat in Pensacola. 338 Class of 1 963 PATRICK WAYNE WILKES Barstow, California Pete took his time getting to the Academy. After graduating from New Mexico Military Institute in 1957, he attended Bullis Prep as his next time-waster. He failed to make it in from Bullis, and so fraternity and college life seemed like the next step. The college turned out to be Arizona State University. This school is well-known for its party life, and Pete was not one to pass up a party. By the end of the first semester he had had enough school. It was while a fireman in Scottsdale, Arizona, that he passed the Academy entrance exams. Plebe year Pat spent most of his time with 150 football and indoor and outdoor track. Pete ' s final two years were relatively uneventful. He lettered in 150 football and spent some time with the afternoon " drill team. " After he makes his service selection, Pete is willing to let the chips fall where they may. ALBERT SCOTT WILSON Garfield, New Jersey When Scotty made his first journey to USNA from his native Gar- field, he brought with him a fine record of achievement compiled through- out his high school career. In the next four years this record was extended unbroken. Here he proved himself both an athlete and a fine scholar, stand- ing near the top of the class every semester. Scotty wore stars both on and off the athletic field. Although starting his plebe year as a boxer, he later switched his interests to intramural sports where he was outstanding in both company soccer and Softball, as a member of several championship teams. Scotty ' s agreeable attitude and sense of humor have brought him many friends here and coupled with his leadership qualities have ranked him outstanding in aptitude. It seems certain that whatever service Scotty chooses, it will benefit from the qualities which place him so high in the esteem of his class. TALMADGE ANTHONY WOMBLE Panama Canal Zone Tony, the quiet boy from the Canal Zone, was born in Cairo, Georgia, where he lived for six years. From Georgia, he moved to Palatka, Fla., and six years later, moved to Panama. He graduated from Balboa High School there and then embarked upon his career in the Navy. His sport is crew, and upon this, he expends a prodigious amount of energy, always striving to pull a little bigger " puddle " and to go a little further. His easy-going manner and genuine friendliness has won him the respect of his classmates and friends and will undoubtedly continue to do so long after he has left the Naval Academy. No matter where he goes, he is bound to add something to the organization. p J r " -,J .4lf ' ' ttf% 1 H Second Battalion 339 FRANK MATTHEW WROBLEWSKI Lyndhurst, New Jersey Frank ' s Academy years were typified by an incident that occurred plebe year: he broke his slide-rule on the way to a math re-exam! He managed to survive, however, and earned quite a degree of fame, due primarily to his being mistaken for Tecumseh. Academically, Frank did rather well, considering the fact that he became the first man to trod the yard for four years never realizing his slide-rule slide was in upside down. His athletic record mirrored his other achievements, but it can be said that a lot of his time was spent on the playing fields of Navy, building character. Second class summer was passed here on the shores of the Severn coaxing the new plebes into military bearing. Above all, Frank ' s sincerity and his deep desire to do the job well and to do it completely will earn him admiration and trust throughout his military career. MILTON EDWARD YARBROUGH, JR. MooresvHle, Alabama The southern gentleman in every sense of the word, Milt is an unassuming, steady man who can be counted on to give all of himself to any task he undertakes. Being very thorough, he hates to rush through a job to get it done, but he never leaves a job unfinished. In his first year at USNA, Milt was on a couple of plebe sports squads, but during his last three years he dropped his interest in varsity sports to contribute to the company and battalion teams, where he was always a valuable asset. Milt is not only a man who thinks for himself; he is a man who thinks of others, and he has the insight into human nature that is so necessary to a good officer. With his unfailing patience, understanding, and capacity for hard work, he will be a valuable addition to the commissioned ranks of whatever branch of the service he chooses to join. 340 Class of 1963 THJRD BATTALION 341 DONALD LEWIS ABBEY Modesto, California " Go West, young man, " may be good advice, but this lanky Californian has an obstinate streak that drove him East. Don settled here in AnnapoHs as a plebe in 1959. While in the Academy Don was a member of the Foreign Relations Club and WRNV. Despite difficul- ties with some of the academic departments, he was on the Superinten- dent ' s List. Don ' s chief interests have been math, the physical sciences, and tennis. At present Don ' s plans are very indefinite. In his own words: " I like the Marine Corps, but Naval Aviation is a good career, and of course submarines . . . . " GARY RONALD ADAMS Hamilton, Ohio A native Ohioan and avid Buckeye fan, Gary came here straight out of high school. Music is one of his great loves, and he was an active participant in the Brigade Drum and Bugle Corps and Midshipmen Con- cert Band. In the sports department he played fieldball, company cross- country, water polo, and was a member of the YP squadron. A major in mathematics, his favorite subjects here were math and science. His hobbies consists of building models, arranging music, and, of all things, writing poetry. His favorite pastimes here at the Academy were going on football trips with the D and B and playing concerts at girls ' schools with the concert band. Gary hopes to be a fly boy as his father was before him and wear the golden wings of Naval Aviation. BRUCE DAVID ALITT Bradley Beach, New Jersey Bruce had no sooner graduated from high school when he found himself gazing upon the friendly face of Mother Bancroft. Sincere and quiet, he had no difficulty with the academics, managing always to stand high in the class. Besides being academically inclined, the pride of Bradley Beach was an expert on entertainment in New York, the Civil War, foreign policy, Israel, and food. As for girls, he is looking for a Venus with the intellectual depth of Einstein; he hasn ' t found her yet although several studies and numerous scrimmages have been made. His athletic endeavors were centered around golf, boxing, and swimming. A proponent of keeping physically fit, Bruce could be frequently found in the conditioning room doing push-ups, pull-ups, and sit-ups. His tremendous drive coupled with his determination to excel will surely prove an asset to the Navy. 342 Class of 1963 JOHN MICHAEL ANDERSON Portland, Oregon Andy is known best by his classmates for his amazing ability as an artist, and, although not possessing many spare moments, he somehow finds time to contribute greatly to the many varied Brigade publications in this field. His interests include, besides art, electronics, music, and rowing. The latter is exemplified by his participation in varsity heavy- weight crew. In this field John has reached many desirous goals — includ- ing participation in the I960 Olympic Trials in which the plebe crew placed fourth, and the many achievements of the Navy Crew since that time. His future will undoubtedly be highlighted by many successes that are the re- sult of his own hard work and sincere personality. RICHARD LOUIS ARVELUND Bronx, New York Whenever the syllable " Lund! " rang throughout the halls, only one person could respond to it. The Bronx, New York ' s gift to Navy would come strolling down the corridor in his usual shuffling manner. Some of Lund ' s more serious activities included beer mug col- lecting, beach parties, debutante balls, and an intensive study of skirt lines. However, to break the monotony, Dick sang in the Catholic Choir and devoted much effort to the Brigade Forensic program. In the athletic vein, Lund could be seen daily streaking across the fields in training for varsity track. To satisfy a hunger for intrigue and travel, Dick has hopes for a career in submarines or in Naval Intelligence doing attache work. He has much to offer the Navy and his flag. This is easily seen since he is determined to utiTize the benefits of four years of study in that direc- tion. RICHARD MILLARD AUGUR North Haven, Connecticut " Dick hails from the land of Connecticut Yankees, and after a year of preparation at Bullis Prep, he came to the Naval Academy to be trans- formed into the spit and polish of a midshipman. Af ter his escapades of plebe year, Dick quickly assumed the sleeping life of a youngster in all of its pomp and glory in his second year. Although not one to be tied by one femme, it seemed Dick was a frequent visitor to St. John ' s during his stay. Though not a varsity athlete, Dick was an avid enthusiast for intramural sports and could be frequently seen with the battalion or com- pany Softball, football, or fieldball teams. He was also a member of the Naval Academy Christian Association and the Automotive Engineering Club. Plebes were quick to realize his quest for knowledge and interest in the silent service, and we, his classmates, expect to see him conning a sub- marine into port for his favorite pastime — liberty. Third Battalion 343 HAROLD EDWARD BAHR, JR. Houston, Texas Harold hails from Texas, coming to the Academy directly from high school. Since he has been here, he has displayed an avid interest in Brigade activities and is a member in both the Chess Club and the Stamp and Coin Club. During the winter he participates in Brigade Boxing, and he works equally hard at intramural sports during the other seasons. Harold possesses a warm friendly personality and can always be depended upon to help out where needed. His easy going attitude about life makes him easy to get along with. His philosophy about life is that there is some good in everyone and, if given a chance, it will show up. We, his class- mates, feel that he will be equally as successful in the Fleet as he was in the Brigade and wish him good luck and good sailing. LIONEL ALFRED W. BANDA Washington, D. C. Well known for his friendliness and willingness to help his friends, Lionel has made his years here a success all the way. Not only has he been able to outwit the Academic and Executive Departments, keeping himself on the Superintendent ' s List for all four years, but also has made his presence felt on the athletic field. No slouch in the female department, he has managed to spread his talents around and still put time on the Reception Committee and Pep Club. A well-rounded gentleman in the true Navy spirit, he has learned to enjoy all the privileges and responsi- bilities that go along with this title. With a future in subs uppermost in his mind, Lionel will prove to be a credit to the Fleet as he has been to the Academy. ROBERT FREDERICK BECKHAM Warwick, Rhode Island Fred came to the Naval Academy from Warwick, R. L, via Sullivan Prep School in Washington, D. C. He excelled in company 150 football, although he never played in high school. Football was second to boxing, though. His quick hands and desire made him a contender to be dealt with each year. He was one of the few men in the Brigade that had dragging down to a science. At the beginning of each semester, Fred would take out his Trident calendar and map out his weekends for the whole semester as regular as clockwork. He was on the flying squadron every other week- end. Fred will stick with the Navy after graduation, and the Blue and Gold will be getting itself a tremendous young officer. 344 Class of 1963 TRAIAN BENCHEA Akron, Ohio Traian came to the shores of the Severn after attending the Univer- sity of Akron for two years. Since arriving at USNA, he has injected his unhmited energy into all the activities in which he has participated. Tra ' s particular interests are the Foreign Relations club, NACA, and intramural sports. During his free time he has become keenly interested in hi-fi systems, constructing his own stereo amplifier and tuner. Tra ' s greatest pleasures, however, come every leave period when he is able to fly back to Ohio to visit with his family, leaving the Executive Department in a state of con- cern over his well planned time schedule. In the intramural sports program there is none as aggressive as Tra, believing that there is only one reason to play and that is to win. In spite of this keen determination on the athletic field, off the field he is a true friend and will go to no ends to help others. With his drive and enthusiasm, Traian will be a fine officer in the service which he enters upon graduation from the Academy. I RUSSELL ELLIOT BERRY, JR. Keldin, Michigan Fresh out of Ogdensburg Free Academy, New York, Russ decided to come to the Naval Academy. He was very active in intramural sports, participating in cross-country, softball, and soccer. Russ belonged to the French Club, NACA, and was on the layout staff of the 1963 Lucky B g. Always cheerful and willing to lend a hand to the common cause, he helped win the colors for the Twenty-first company his youngster year. As he is very proficient in the French language, Russ took several over- loads in French. He is looking forward to a career in the Naval service, and we wish him the best of luck in all he does. DAVID ARTHUR BINGEMANN Oaklyn, New Jersey Although his home is in Oaklyn, New Jersey, Dave, or " Bingy, " always speaks of " down at the shore " as being the place to be. Before giving the Academy a try. Brown University and NROTC were " Bingy ' s " claim to fame. The ivy-league touch impressed him so much he has a " button-down " mind, especially with that ivy-type haircut. Tennis is " Bingy ' s " main interest in sports and a battalion championship the high- light of his ability. A multiunit stereo with the hidden bass speaker was his chief source of interest at the Naval Academy and it competed with the German Club for his time. As with anyone else, Bingy had his dis- likes. English was the chief and almost the only one of these, however. We must compliment him upon his organization, especially in his room. In fact, " Does a person or a machine live here? " was a common comment in his room. With his offhand manner and quick wit, Bingy is bound to be a great success in the Fleet, and a promising career is evident for his efforts. Third Battalion 345 MICHAEL ROBERT BIRO San Francisco, California Mike attended Abraham Lincoln High School and then City Col- lege of San Francisco for two years as a Pre-Med student, before heading East. His record there includes membership in the local fraternity of Beta Phi Beta and the Student Council. Always an avid mechanic, he was a member of Drag Masters and customed his own ' 3 Mercury. Since Mike is always serious in any thing he undertakes, he is now well on his way to getting a major in Electronics. For extracurricular activities sailing on the schooner Freedom and company cross-country occupy most of his time. Because of his very sociable nature, especially with the girls, Mike is welcome at any party and always manages to have two or three girls with cars and motorboats on a string. His future prospects are to follow in his father ' s footsteps and go into submarines. JOHN ROSS BOLEY Seattle, Washington After one year tour of duty with the Naval Reserve Officer Train- ing Corps at the University of Washington, John left the great Northwest to join the ranks of the Brigade of Midshipmen. His quiet, friendly, and hard-working attitude saw him through plebe year. Most of his spare time was spent at Hubbard Hall with the plebe and varsity 150 pound crew team. The academic departments gave John very little trouble and left him those few precious moments to date or attend a party. Never known to date the same girl twice, he believed in " equality for all. " John, with his drive and determination, will be a welcome addition to the ranks of the Navy. CLINTON WARD BOND, JR. Baton Rouge, Louisiana Ward came to the Academy from the swamplands of southern Louisiana after spending one glorious " fraternity-type " year at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia. Being acquainted with the type of life associated with a fraternity. Ward quickly adjusted to life at USNA finding plebe year not unlike his year as a " pledge. " Upon his arrival here he continued to be active in the various club activities offered to him by the Academy as well as being an outstanding oarsman on the 150 crew team. His small frame, however, is greatly outweighed by his strong ambition and energetic character which made it natural for him to obtain the many friend- ships that he has. Possessing a cheerful attitude and amicable personality. Ward is sure to be a valuable asset to any command he joins. 346 Class of 1963 ROBERT ANTHONY BORLET Grand Rapids, Michigan Never in need of a formal introduction, Bob ' s easy going and friendly ways served as his passport. Coming to USNA after a year at St. Norbert in Wisconsin, he made his mark not only in academics but his energies carried him far in the field of Brigade Activities. As a member of the Log and Splinter and Ring Dance committee, it seemed as if the " financial wizard " was always collecting for something. His athletic prowess was devoted mostly to the support of his company and the in- famous First Base Club. To those who were closely associated with Bob, he proved to be a constant source of humor and amazement. Outspoken and frank, he never let even the most insignificant thing slip by without a com- ment. He will be a great asset to the Fleet and a valuable addition to any- one ' s list of friends. RONALD ALBERT BOYD Opelousas, Louisiana " Bip " was born in Opelousas, Louisiana, on 2 September, 1940. While in high school " Bip " demonstrated his all around capabilities by lettering in football, basketball, track, and baseball, by being treasurer of his class during his junior and senior year, and by graduating as saluta- torian of his class. After high school " Bip " attended the University of Southwestern Louisiana for a year before entering the Naval Academy. At the Academy everyone who came in contact with " Bip " can tell you that he didn ' t lose a bit of his interest in sports, as he was very active in the company intramural program. When engaged in the strict routine of life at the Academy, " Bip " showed his ability to use his time to its greatest advantage, and on liberty could always be counted on for showing the way to a good time for all. A bright future lies in store for " Bip " , and we wish him the best in all he undertakes. ALFRED LAWRENCE BREEN Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey Al came to the Naval Academy from Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey. Although he sometimes receives arguments, ' he is quick to defend the many merits of his state. Al has been an energetic participant in many sports throughout his four years. He banged heads with the best of them while out for plebe football and looks like he is part of the varsity in every battalion football game. He carries this same vigor into his company soccer games and squasn matches. For Al ' s other side, one has only to drop by his room on a Sunday afternoon to find him producing a color- ful scene with his paints. His painting talent became evident after he won the Trident Art Contest in 1961. With his active approach and his varied talents, the Navy will have a fine officer. Third Battalion 347 ROBERT JORDAN BRIDGEMAN Somerset, Massachusetts Bob, alias Robby Roadrunner, brought his winning personality and quick smile to the Brigade in lieu of accepting an appointment to the Coast Guard Academy. His lack of physical stature is inversely propor- tional to his enthusiasm for a good time or an extra hour ' s sleep. His participation in plebe soccer, company soccer, and lightweight football ex- emplified his outstanding competitive spirit. The plebes will remember Bob as a connoisseur of fine sandwiches and sundaes. These appetizing concoc- tions will be placed high on the tantalizing delights capable of preparation by the upperclass gourmets. Bob ' s plans after graduation include a career in " anything but the Marine Corps. " His ability to cooperate and yet display the appropriate amount of leadership promises to make his a brilliant future. EARL FRANZ BUCK Menlo, Washington Earl came to the Naval Academy from Menlo, Washington. A Navy junior of two generations, he decided young on a Navy career. While at the Academy he participated in plebe 150 pound football and plebe and varsity track. He also found time during his non-varsity seasons to help his company intramural teams. He enriched his professional knowledge in activities with the YP Squadron. Well liked by all who knew him, Earl will be as much a credit to the naval service as he was to the Brigade during his four years by the Severn. RICHARD WILLIAM BUELOW Independence, Iowa Richard William Buelow, known to his classmates and friends as Dick, hails from Independence, Iowa. Upon graduation from high school, he received a Congressional appointment to the Naval Academy and in July of the same year became a member of the Class of 1963. Dick is very proud of his home state and is quick to tell you as much any time the subject may arise. His interest in the " Hawkeye " sports teams is second only to those of the Navy. Since his arrival at the Academy he has participated in numerous intramural sports. He has been a member of his co mpany ' s lightweight football and cross country teams and his battalion ' s lacrosse and swimming teams, just to mention a few. He has also been an active member of the Newman Club and the Reception Committee. Dick ' s friend- ly, easy-going personality has made him very popular here at the Academy and, coupled with his many other outstanding qualities, will assure him ot a very successful future. 348 Class of 1 963 CHARLES NATALE CALVANO Chicago, Illinois Chuck came to the shores of the Severn with the blessings of Mendel High and the city of Chicago. They have good reason to be proud in the Windy City, for as outstanding as Chuck was in scholastics and sports such as baseball, football, and track there, he has kept up the will to win here. An outstanding student, having his major in the social sciences, he has distinguished himself with his work on the Log, Splinter, and the Lucky Bag, and his spirited play in company cross-country and lightweight football. Plebe year was spent in the ' " Terrible Tenth, " where he picked up the nickname " Rocky " and weathered the proverbial trials and tribulations with a smile in his heart. Liked by everybody. Chuck, with his quick wit and amiable ways, could even make us see the bright side of the " Dark Ages. " As the Academy loses Chuck, the Fleet gains a bright young officer with an even brighter future. GEORGE CANDELORI Hightstown, New Jersey George entered the Academy after spending one year at Sullivan Preparatory School in Washington, D. C. He plunged into the rigors of plebe year enthusiastically and came through unscathed. George ' s amiable disposition was evident from the very beginning, and he was well-liked by all those who knew him. Academics posed no particular problem for George, and he was always more than willing to divulge any information which he deemed beneficial to his classmates. His athletic endeavors were devoted to company sports, where he excelled in soccer, Softball, and field- ball. Flying is the particular field on which George has his heart set. George will definitely prove to be an asset to his country, and whatever his duty station may be he will respond favorably to the tasks imposed upon him. GARY E. CARLSON Grand Junction, Colorado Known as a veritable tiger in sports or at a party, Gary was a real asset to his class. In the former category he ran track his plebe year and then wrestled for the varsity team. Even with these activities he found time to be a company representative for the WRNV radio station. Gary was a friendly type, always ready to extend a helping hand to a classmate. He always had a big sense of humor which helped to lift life out of any rut, a welcome talent. The Naval service has the complete loyalty of this young man, and it will undoubtedly benefit from his spirit, tenacity, and sharp military bearing. Third Battalion 349 JAMES O ' NEIL CARTER Arlington, Virginia Jim has waged a personal cold war against the Executive Depart- ment, not always being the victor. His easygoing and amiable personality has made him a friend of all those who know him. Standing in the top 20 of his class in Physical Education, he has added greatly to the sports program here at the academy. During his first year alone, he was a mem- ber of the plebe swimming, tennis, and 150 lb. football teams. No slouch in academics, Jim has supplemented his courses with various overloads. Always the life of the party, he ' s often found with a brunette on one arm and a blonde on the other. Looking forward to joining the undersea fleet upon graduation, Jim will be as fine an officer as he was a midshipman. DENNIS MICHAEL CLARK Bakersfield, California " Skip " hails from Bakersfield, California, and this fact is con- stantly revealed to friend and foe alike. Generally outspoken about Cali- fornia, he woud rival even the proudest Texan ' s ability to expound on home-state attributes. Soon after entering the academy. Skip found his calling as a sailor. He has been a regular member of the Academy Ocean Sailing Squadron. Always a great one for stories and doodles, Skip has found merit in working for the Log as a writer and cartoonist. He also has been active in the Foreign Relations and Radio Clubs. A desire to mas- ter a foreign language has kept him busy as a member of the Italian Club. Skip has seriously considered all aspects of the Navy. Whatever his choice, the service will receive a fine gentleman. MICHAEL GREGORY COLSTON Patchogue, New York Mike is one of the finest midshipmen ever to come from our most highly populated state. He brought with him from Long Island the experience of being a football and track captain, and the ability to get along with everyone, which is evidenced by his easy going personality. His height and tremendous natural athletic ability were put to good use when he went undefeated in company cross country and as a key member on the Brigade Champion heavyweight football team. Besides the many sports at which he excelled, Mike also enjoyed playing chess and was a member of the Chess Club. His grades compare favorably with those of his classmates as does his taste in " The Spenders of Our Pennies. " His pleasant personality and ability to organize mark him for a successful career, and he agrees fully with his firstie ' s philosophy that " Navy line is mighty fine. " 350 Class of 1 963 JOHN DENNIS CONROY Jersey City, New Jersey Prior to entering the Academy John attended BuUis Prep School. The transition from civilian life to that of a plebe was a hard one for John, but he took it all in stride. A few of his hobbies include music, girls, and most of all, sports. John was the mainstay of the company basketball and fieldball teams, but he held football above all others. With several years experience behind him, John made the plebe and varsity football teams and held down his position at end with little difficulty. His plans for the future are not definite, but you can be sure he will excel in what- ever branch of the Navy he enters after graduation. John has always ex- tended a helping hand to anyone who needed it and can be counted on not to let his friends down. He has the knack for making people like him and working with John after graduation will be a pleasure for anyone. GEORGE DANIEL MARTIN CUNHA Washington, D. C. Dan came to the Academy from Rhode Island and has changed his address to the Canal Zone and Washington, D. C, in the pattern of a true Navy junior. Although Dan came straight from high school, his name is familiar to those who checked the Superintendent ' s List. His talents were mostly in the math and science fields in which he acquired major credits. His interest, however, was equally strong in the liberal arts, resulting in his activity in the French and Foreign Relations Clubs. He also was in the Photography Club and active with the Log and Splinter. Dan was company representative to the Brigade Activities Committee second class year. After a season with the plebe dinghy sailing team, Dan sought more active sports competing in company squash, knockabouts, and cross- country in his final years. Dan plans on following his father in a career in Navy line. PATRICK ARTHUR DAY Walnut Creek, California Art -came to the Academy after two years at California Polytechnic Institute where he studied aeronautical engineering. From the very begin- ning of his Academy career. Art established his reputation for superior academic and athletic achievement. He was captain of the plebe gymnastics team, and, as a youngster, won his letter and a third-place medal in Long Horse at the Eastern Intercollegiate Championship. Despite his varsity successes he managed to excel in company Softball and to be a company Splinter representative. His social endeavors were equally outstanding. His talents at singing, impersonating, and organizing parties and other func- tions were immeasurable. Art will be well re membered for his unique honesty and frank opinions, but even more, he will be remembered tor his sincere dedication to the Naval service. The goals Art has set for him- self will assure him of a particularly rewarding life. Third Battalion 351 PHILIP WRAY DEAN Piedmont, California Phil helped to bring some of that renowned California sunshine to these grey walls on the Severn. Well-liked, he combines a warm smile with an outward personality which is hard to beat. Active both athletically and socially at Piedmont High School, Phil entered the University of Cali- fornia, where he commenced studies toward a medical degree. However, turning his sights towards Annapolis, Phil donned the uniform of a Naval officer in preference to that of a doctor. Such was the Navy ' s gain, for Phil distinguished himself as an outstanding member of his class. Scholastically, he did well at the Academy. In addition to being on the Superintendent ' s List, Phil took electives for a major in Math. A stalwart member of the company squash and battalion tennis teams, Phil kept active athletically. Whatever branch of the service he chooses, he will dis- tinguish himself as a fine representative of the Naval Academy. ROGER LUKE DEEGAN St. ]ames, Minnesota Rog hails from the " Land of Ten-thousand Lakes, " Minnesota, and calls St. James his hometown. He came to USNA via the U. S. Air Force and the Naval Preparatory School at Bainbridge, Maryland. Rog spent his plebe and youngster years in the " Terrible Tenth Company, " where he was a member of such outstanding groups as Father Flannigan ' s choir boys. Rog is a supporter of plebe year and a great help in keeping up the company spirit. When the going gets rough, he is always there with his sharp wit and good sense of humor. Rog has been an outstanding midshipman and is highly regarded and respected by all who know him. His untiring efforts to help anyone will make him a great asset wherever he goes. THEODORE JOHN DelGAiZO Revere, Massachusetts Fresh out of high school in Revere, Massachusetts, Ted soon be- came well-known to his classmates for his sincerity, friendly manner, and ready sense of humor.

J., his hometown; however, as is evident from his whimsical personality and flair for women and romance, Tony has not lost his Italian gusto and charm. Plebe year found Tony class company and honor representative, reporter for the " Trident, " and member of the Italian Club. During his last three years, Tony spent all his spare time making the Italian Club better and better. Soccer is Tony ' s sport specialty and love, besides his OAO.

Tony has a taste for soft and semi-clas- sical music, but has also taken a liking to singers such as Pat Boone and Johnny Mathis. With his zealous desire to work hard for what he believes worth-while, Tony ' s shipmates have no doubts that he ' ll be an asset to the fleet. MICHAEL LAWRENCE DICKERSON Oceana, Virginia Mike hails from Oceana, Virginia, where he attended Princess Anne High School. He came to the Academy directly out of high school on a Presidential nomination. Mike has taken an active part in extracurricular activities at the Naval Academy, having been in the NA-Ten, Concert Band, Drum and Bugle Corps, and the Musical Club show. It is quite evident from these activities that he has an avid interest in music of all types. He has also shown his athletic versatility by participating in a number of the intramural sports offered at the Academy. Mike has a warm, straight forward attitude producing a personality that enables him to make friends easily. He has also proven to be very industrious by achieving good. grades, even though much of his study time is taken by his extracurricular activities. Mike will make a fine officer in whichever phase of the service he chooses, and he will easily gain the support and loyalty of the men under him. I DENNIS CARL DOHERTY Minneapolis, Minnesota Duffy, as he is known to his many friends throughout the Brigade, came to the Naval Academy after spending a year as a physics major at the University of Minnesota. A great stereo and hi-fi enthusiast, Duffy could always be found endeavoring to help a friend on some intri- cate electronics problem. He had a quick humor and a love for talking that was unrivaled. Once started on a favorite topic, he could rarely be subdued. As a member of the Log staff and Brigade Activities Com- mittee, Duffy manifested his great interest in the spirit of the Brigade. He was strictly an intramural athlete, where his enthusiasm was directed toward the aquatic sports. Duffy ' s classmates will always remember him as the friendly, easy-going person that he is, and during his career in the Fleet, Duffy will surely be an outstanding credit to the Naval Academy. Third Battalion 353 LAWRENCE ALLEN DOLL Massillon, Ohio Larry Doll — a good man to have around, especially sitting across from you during study hour. Straight from winning top scholastic honors in high school, Larry had very little trouble stepping into the fast moving Academy program. Being a good plebe, he didn ' t tell anyone that he had sprained his foot going to formation for the Little Army-Navy Football Game, and marched all the way to Navy-Marine Memorial Stadium with a broken ankle. He did complain though, when they took him to the hospital and he missed the second half. While he worked hard at every- thing he did, he didn ' t have to work at making friends. His easy manner and quick wit made him friend to all that knew him. His future plans are uncertain right now, but one thing certain is that Larry will find success no matter what he does. JOHN JOSEPH DONEGAN Milford, Connecticut Jack, a Connecticut Yankee, hailing from Milford, Connecticut, came to the Naval Aacademy from the Fleet via the Naval Academy Prep School. Being a professional all the way. Jack was a natural for the YP Squadron and devoted much of his time to its activities. During his non-sailing seasons, he participated in company intramurals or battalion track. Well-liked by his classmates and active in his company. Jack was still more at home on the bridge than ashore. He was happiest when he was on cruise or on a YP. This, along with his confidence and inspiring personality, is bound to guarantee him a successful career in the Navy. JAMES DAVID DRISKELL, III Houston, Texas Dave came to USNA after completing a very successful high school career and a year at Sullivan Prep. He immediately proceeded to compile an enviable record here, especially in athletics. Track and swim- ming were his strong sports. He set the plebe record in the 100 yard dash, and helped set two relay records in swimming. Although Dave is a strong competitor, his personality and good nature have helped him win many life-long friends and become a respected leader in our class. Dave and academics never got along too well, but they never got the best of him. If and when he wanted, there was always female companionship. We are sure that the Navy line will be proud and fortunate to receive a man of Dave ' s qualifications. 354 Class of 1 963 WILLIAM ANTHONY EARNER, JR. McKeesport, Pennsylvania Bill, sometimes called " Death " by his company classmates and the upperclass of plebe year, hails from the town of McKeesport, Pennsylvania. The quiet manner which surrounds Bill ' s appearance sometimes fools a casual acquaintance. An avid member of the varsity debate team, Bill at any time welcomes a good sound argument. Bill ' s other interests include the German Club, Newman Club, and the company softball team. Among Bill ' s likes and dislikes concerning academics at the Academy, English seemed to rest upon the higher level and mathematics the lower. A quick mind, pleasant personality, and a smart appearance will benefit Bill in the Naval Service. WILLIAM THEODORE ELLISON St. Paul, Minnesota From the rigors of a military high school, Bill stepped directly into the Naval Academy to further pursue his desire for a service career. Quickly adjusting to his new life, he had also to adjust to a new nick- name, " Snake, " which was given to him after a colorful escapade. In his years on the Severn, Snake was a stalwart supporter of the intramural program, being a member of the Brigade championship fencing and tennis teams, as well as a member of our undefeated plebe fencing team. His talents, however, were not limited to the playing fields, having been from time to time entitled to the privileges accorded to members of the Superin- tendent ' s List. His classmates ' respect for him was shown by his election to the Brigade Honor Committee second class year. As Snake follows his career in the service of his country, he ' ll always be remembered and known by not only his classmates, but also those with whom he serves, as an industrious worker and natural leader. JOSEPH FRANCIS FOSSELLA Brockton, Massachusetts It was no surprise to his classmates that " Foss " has left his mark on Academy sports. Before coming to USNA, Joe left quite an impressive record in Brockton, Mass. Lacrosse and football are his major interests, but his academic record was even more envious. A frequent member of the Superintendent ' s List, Joe was a good man to have around during study hour. Joe is a hard worker who will do his best for whatever cause he is working for. Perhaps " Foss " will be remembered most for his class spirit. Joe always had his classmates in mind. Come June 1963 the Academy will graduate a true gentleman — Joe Fossella. Third Battalion 355 TED GARY FRANKLIN Seattle, Washington After being born and raised in Seattle, Washington, Gary spent a year at the University of Washington. The wanderlust bug having bit- ten him during this year, Gary could look no further west, and so he set his sights upon the other side of the country and found his way to USNA. His interests were many and varied. Equally at home on a rifle or pistol range, next to a chessboard, shooting pool, discussing the relative merits and demerits of the Executive Department, philosophising about history, or even just quietly studying, he managed to keep quite busy during his four years at the Academy. His great interest in history and government has motivated him towards a career in Intelligence or Attache work. Gary ' s congenial nature and ready smile will continue to be an asset to him throughout his life. CHARLES DOUGLAS FRAZER Los Angeles, California Contrary to Horace Greeley ' s advice. Chuck came East. A native of the City of Angels, Chuck spent two years at East Los Angeles College before getting into Uncle Sam ' s organizatio n. Since arriving here Chuck ' s main interests have been Navy football, fine music, and beautiful girls. The old adage about football heroes and beautiful girls is proving true for Chuck, having been a mainstay on the plebe and junior varsity teams. Chuck hasn ' t decided on his service selection yet, but whatever he chooses, they will receive a fine young man. ERNEST RAYMOND FREEMAN San Antonio, Texas Ernie came to the banks of the Severn from the plains of Texas less than a month after his high school graduation, but academics never bothered him seriously. It was a very rare Superintendent ' s List without Ernie ' s name on it. Having great spirit and determination has made him an asset to every team he has ever been on and enabled him to get his parachute wings after youngster cruise. Not being tied down with one girl has let Ernie search far and wide for his dre am, a combination of brains and beauty with a little athletic prowess. His determination and ability coupled with friendliness and a fine sense of humor are sure to make him welcome anywhere he chooses to settle. 356 Class of 1 963 DONALD RALPH FREESE Rock Island, Illinois Hailing from the corn fields of Illinois, Don came to the academy after graduating from Rock Island High School. Quite a runner in his younger days, Don excelled in track and held his own on the basket- ball court. In the classroom he ranked at the top of his class, as well as being elected Vice-President of his class. Since coming to the academy, Don has continued to excel in the classroom especially in the fields of math and science. His interest in athletics, however, has been replaced by a new attraction, the female sex. Seldom seen without a pretty escort, Don will be well remembered for his weekly trips into town. Always easy to get along with, Don made many friends while here at the academy and should continue to be a success in his future career as a Naval officer. WILLARD JOSEPH GENTILE New York, New York A product of the Bronx, New York, Bill arrived at Annapolis well qualified to accomplish the tasks of a midshipman. He attended Mt. St. Michael Academy. Varsity football and track tended to satisfy his athletic desires. He could always be found putting in a little extra time on his favored math and science courses. A typical New York youth, he tinkered with hot rods and spent plenty of time playing sandlot ball and visiting his favorite pizza joint. As a midshipman. Bill has always been a source of joy and honest fan. A constant source of laughs, he will be remembered for his boisterous scenes. His competitive spirit has been satisfied by chess and fieldball. We only wish the best for Bill in his future life and career as a Navy pilot. RAYMOND O. GIBSON, JR. Miami, Oklahoma " Hoot " hails from Miami, Oklahoma, where he attended North- eastern Oklahoma A M Junior College for a year before coming to USNA. Between his many incantations over our beautiful but humid weather and our rapid pace both academically and athletically, " Hoot " continually shone above many of his compatriots. Having mastered the art of procras- tination before entering the Academy, he continued along this vein, but only to a certain extent. When called upon or needed, he could always be depended upon not only for aid or assistance, but for an outstanding job. His slow and methodic nature produces a wild array of ideas and schemes. " Hoot " has been an outstanding intramural volleyball, basketball, and Softball par ticipant. With his slow, easy, yet razor-sharp manner, Hoot will surely be a successful officer in his military career. Third Battalion 357 HOWARD ADRIAN GINTER Ijttle Falls, Minnesota Howie embarked upon his naval career as a junior in high school, when he joined the Naval Air Reserve. After graduation from high school, he went on active duty and entered the U. S. Naval Academy Preparatory School which led to his entrance to the U. S. Naval Academy Plebe year he participated in cross-country, track, and lacrosse, and in youngster year in varsity cross-country and track. Having difficulty with the academics, he decided to limit his sporting activities to company and battalion sports. Dragging was also limited; however, he made up for it during the summer in the Bethesda area where he attained the title of " social director " and " let ' s have a party " were standard words in his vocabu- lary. Contact with the fairer sex consisted mainly of Navy nurses, who could always be counted on for a better than good time, especially during mid-term and spring leave periods. FREDERICK EMERSON GOODWIN Baltimore, Maryland Fred got one of ' 63 ' s lowest initial travel allowances for his short trek from B-more. Upon arrival, the P. E. department was stupefied by his crawl stroke although he did splash out the required 100 yards for knockabouts. In sports he ran company cross-country and battalion track. His chief interest is things mechanical and electrical so he joined the Juice Gang and helped to light the shows and make signs for Bancroft Hall. Along this line, Fred also belongs to the Automobile Engineering and Aeronautical Engineering Clubs. From the above " nuts and bolts " description he is one of the few midshipmen to enjoy an O R tour. His red hair has helped make him easily recognizable, but he views this as a hindrance if you are trying to dodge the sleuths of the Executive Depart- ment. THOMAS RAY GREEN ]oplin, Missouri Tom left the hills of Missouri in June of 1958 on his path to the Navy. Launching his promising career in the Fleet, he spent a short year at Navy Prep. Following graduation he arrived here on the Severn. Plebe year posed no serious problems to Tom, and he stepped into the Brigade virtually unharmed. For youngster cruise Tom was assigned to the Saratoga, where he absorbed the necessary seamanship expected of a Midshipman. The academics of youngster year seemed to be designed for him, as he gained a place on the Superintendent ' s List. In extracurricular activities Tom found a variety of intramural sports to his liking. We shall all remember the added zest Tom provided to many company parties. Those of us in the c ompany will always remember the good times and added wit which Tom provided. Whatever Tom goes into after gradua- tion, we are sure that the Fleet will be much better for it. 358 Class of 1963 FRANCIS CARL GREGORY Philadelphia, Pennsylvania After a year at Villanova University, studying for a degree in Mechanical Engineering, Frank came to the Naval Academy equipped with a keen mind and quick wit. These two traits coupled with his engineering background made Frank an all around threat. Always ready to provide a few laughs for his classmates to ease their daily burdens, he made many lasting friendships during his stay at the Academy. Frank was an active participant in company sports and could be counted on to strengthen any team with his spirit and skill. During his spare time he could be found studying, listening to music, or engaging in friendly discussions covering a wide variety of topics. Always ready to have a good time, Frank could be counted on to liven any social function. A career even more successful than his Academy days awaits Frank upon graduation. I I BRUCE WILLIAM GUNKLE Matawan, New Jersey Bruce came to USNA from Rutgers Prep School in New Brunswick, New Jersey, where he was All-State in both soccer and basketball, and also lettered in baseball. At the Academy, " Gunks " , as he was called, con- tinued his avid participation in sports by playing varsity baseball and bas- ketball. He always came back from summer leave with one of the deepest suntans in the class, since he spent every waking moment on the nation ' s beaches. Among his favorite hobbies were listening to music, especially rock and roll, eating, and, of course, sports. While at the Academy he clung tenaciously to his vow of abstinence from dating, despite the en- treaties of his classmates. Bruce ' s most outstanding trait was his winning, magnetic personality, and he was known and universally liked by the mem- bers of his class. Bruce is an .outstanding person and can anticipate a happy and successful future. WILLIAM GUSHUE, JR. East Orange, New Jersey Coming to the Academy from the U. S. Navy, Bill was probably best known for his cymbal-playing chores in the Midshipmen Concert Band. Percussion was no new job for him for while at NAPS he was one of the drummers in the band there. An avid pinochle player, he could be found almost every weekend searching for a three-or-four-some. His spare time during the week was taken up with the band, where he served as co-ordinator of the drum section, the YP Squadron, and the German Club, where he maintained a silence which was not in the least character- istic. Also a squash enthusiast. Bill could be seen heading for the courts on Wednesdays and Mondays after parades. While no genius, Bill managed to keep his marks up to par. Bill intends making a career of Naval Aviation and with his warm smile and cheery hello, should go far in his chosen field. Third Battalion 359 WILLIAM DILLON HAHN Wheaton, Maryland Bill, who also answers to " Kahn, " is a mountain-boy from Cumber- land, Maryland. Although his family home is now in Wheaton, Maryland, the hills will always occupy a prominent place in his heart. Bill was never able to bring himself to worry about being on time for those three-times- daily meal formations, although he often gave his roommates a real scare by waiting until the last possible moment to begin his preparations. His phobia for collecting things made his room a necessary stop for anyone in quest of any sort of miscellaneous hardware. Gymnastics and a nuclear physics major are two big avocations in Bill ' s life. To both of these pur- suits he characteristically applied his enviable capacity for perseverance and unswerving application to a job. This quality, coupled with his unmatched, easy-going good nature, will take him far on the road to success in any field he chooses to enter. JAMES RONALD HAND Birmingham, Alabama Ron came to the cloistered halls of the Naval Academy directly from the heart of Dixie — Birmingham, Alabama. Ron broke up the monot- ony of the first year by taking an active part in the Masqueraders, Naval Academy Christian Association, and the German Club. After conquering the attraction of sleep and his bed at the outset of youngster year, Ron sat down to plucking his guitar and hitting the books, but to no avail. He still lacked that guitar proficiency and the Superintendent ' s List was yet a goal to attain later. Always one for variety, he played a different sport every season at the Academy. If Ron had spent half the time studying he did with the femmes, he surely would have been one of the class ' outstand- ing scholars. After looking at Naval Air, Ron felt that he had found the service for him, and we are sure that he will do very well in his choice. WILSON FRANCIS HARRIS, JR. Lexington Park, Maryland Wilson, a Navy Junior, came to the Naval Academy from San Juan, Puerto Rico, where he finished his last two years of high school. He concentrated his athletic endeavors on plebe and varsity swimming, where he swam backstroke during his four years at Navy. Academics have never been a major problem for Will, as he has stood in the top quarter of the class since plebe year. Continually trying to improve himself academi- cally, he could always be counted on to be of help to his classmates in their studies. Wilson ' s Naval career will be in the Surface Fleet or on a submarine. 360 Class of 1963 ROBERT WINFIELD HARRISON, JR. Chesterfield, South Carolina Bob is a dyed-in-the-wool rebel. Carrying over a tradition he started in high school, he has led a varied, ambitious, and sometimes hard life. He has shown his versatility by trying out for light-weight crew and varsity soccer. Choosing soccer as the one in which he could best serve himself and the Academy, he showed great improvement throughout the seasons. To fulfill a longing to participate in musical activities, he played saxophone in the concert band and took part in the Musical Club Show. He made frequent appearances on the Superintendent ' s List, in addition to taking part in the elective program in order to more fully take advantage of the opportunities offered him. We consider Bob a sincere hard worker who shall go far in whatever facet of life he decides to enter. WILLIAM JOSEPH HASLET Yakima, Washington Bill started his academy career rather conspicuously. He enjoyed plebe summer. Actually this was not surprising to the classmates who got to know him. Traveling east from the Pacific Northwest, he brought an outlook on life and a set of principles which could not be shaken by either the adversities of plebe year or the temptations of the other three. His tremendous study habits helped him learn and gave him time to help his classmates. Wherever Bill goes in the fleet, his seniors may expect jobs done cheerfully, efficiently, and ahead of schedule. He will be an officer of reat moral character in the true sense of the phrase. WILLIAM BAILEY HEARD Montrose, Colorado Bill came to the Academy straight out of high school from Mont- rose, Colorado. Since he first entered the Naval Academy, his interests have been centered in academics. His major is mathematics, and he is an avid supporter of the Advanced Mathematics and Science Seminar. His sincere application to studies has earned him a place on the Superintendent ' s List and the right to wear stars. Any spare time that he can find is taken up with correspondence courses and library research in mathematics. Second only to his love for math are the Rocky Mountains of his home state. Though quiet and reserved, Bill has a sense of humor that is truly enjoy- able. His humorous and satirical comments prove that all is not serious study with this midshipman. After graduation, Bill is looking forward to postgraduate study, to serve the Navy better with his education. Third Battalion 361 GEORGE ALAN HELLAWELL Wyckojj, New Jersey Born in Brooklyn and reared for the most part in the hills of northern New Jersey, Al came to the shores of the Severn directly from high school where he played three varsity sports and graduated near the top of his class as a member of the National Honor Society. Deciding to put academics first at USNA, Al took extra courses in the science and math departments, but also played intramural football, soccer, and track and sailed on the YP Squadron. He took part in the activities of the Photography and Public Relations Clubs and dragged whenever the op- portunity presented itself. Interested in the Civil War, he had an extensive library and was always willing to rehash the events of the conflict. After graduation Al plans to go to Nuclear Power School and then into the fleet as a submariner. CHARLES FREDERICK HELSPER Herndon, Virginia Charlie came to the Naval Academy from Herndon, Virginia, bring- ing with him determination and a high motivation for the Academy Plebe year found Charlie very active in one of his favorite sports, soccer. He participated in soccer and swimming throughout his stay at the Academy. Pursuing a well-rounded program of studies, sports, and drags, he spent very little time idle. He was an asset to any group in which he participated, due to his hard-working manner. Charlie manifested an acute interest in world affairs and government by his membership in the Foreign Relations Club and many hours spent reading in this field. In view of his performance at the Academy, Charlie will certainly be wel- comed aboard his first duty. WILLIAM ALEXANDER HIMCHAK Newark, New Jersey Bill Himchak, known to his friends by his plebe year nickname, " Hymie, " has been a familiar face in many activities undertaken during our four year stay on the Severn. He boxed for his battalion in the plebe summer smokers and from there moved on to his favorite sport, battalion football. Both the Sixth Battalion and the Third Battalion teams drew upon his experience. In the winter he stayed in shape with company touch football and then became the slugger emeritus of the spring Softball team — usually playing for a Brigade Championship team. He was well known for his booming support of the varsity football team. By hundredth night plebe year, he was an expert dancer. When time allowed, youngster year found him either asleep or dragging. Upon graduation, we are sure Bill will find his ultimate goal in Navy Air. 362 Class of 1963 WILLIAM CHARLES HUGHES, JR. Falls Church, Virginia Bill, a Navy junior, was born in Birmingham, Ala., but now claims Falls Church, Va., as his home. He graduated from Gonzaga High School in ' 59 after a year ' s vacation spent with his family in Spain becoming well acquainted with a few senoritas. Here at the Academy Bill has made quite a name for himself in company and battalion sports, with boxing as his specialty, as well as being consistently on the Superintendent ' s List. His favorite hobbies are jazz, parties, and Carvel Hall. The Reception Com- mittee has made good use of the few times he wasn ' t dragging. His good humor has won him many friends, not only among his classmates, but also among many officers and sailors throughout the fleet. Bill ' s future lies in submarines and the undersea Navy can be proud of his choice. GUY JAMES HUTCHINS Massena, New York Jim. came to the Academy from Massena, N. Y. Although coming directly from high school, he had the groundwork laid out for the activi- ties he was to pursue here. While in high school he was editor of his school paper, a strong competitor in wrestling, and a member of the choir. He has followed these varied interests here by writing for the Splinter, wrestling on the battalion and plebe teams, and singing in the chapel choir and the glee club. Jim ' s ability to solve problems has helped him to excel in mathematics and engineering. For this many of his friends are truly grateful because he was always glad to explain a solution. Though Jim is a fighter he has a friendly and easy going nature that has won him much respect and friendship. Third Battalion 363 MARSHALL NEIL JACKSON Clover, South Carolina Easily recognized a block away by his ambling " cornfield " gait and known to be easy to get along with, Marshall will be long remembered by his many friends throughout the Brigade. A natural athlete, he quickly became a stalwart of the intramural teams, excelling in battalion foot- ball and always coming through with the big home runs in Softball. Aside from sports his extracurricular activities consisted primarily of con- cert band; Nevertheless, Marshall was no slouch with the books as his 3.9 final exams indicate clearly. A home-and-country southern boy, he has been a great asset to his class and the Brigade and will continue to present a fine example as an officer. PATRICK WOODRUFF JOHNSON Coshocton, Ohio Pat, born in OIny, 111., calls Coshocton, Ohio, his home. Coming to the Academy with a long list of athletic and academic honors, he quickly proved that he could do as well, if not better, here. Pat played football, lacrosse, and was a diver on the swimming team his plebe year. Since then, he has devoted his time to varsity lacrosse. Pat has also main- tained a high academic average. Not only does he excel in sports and studies, but he also has a reputation as a ladies ' man. Never without a date, he has won the heart of many of the fairer sex. To ail this, he adds memberships in the Reception Committee, Choir, Radio Club, and a charter membership in the " early morning and dawn hiking club. " Pat goes to the surface fleet upon graduation, and the fleet can be proud to accept this promising, potential Admiral. WILLIAM SPENCER JOHNSON Charleston, South Carolina Being a Navy Junior subjected to various environments ranging from Brooklyn to Japan, " Spence " decided that Navy life should be his career. A Southern boy, he first decided to enter the Naval Academy soon after receiving his first pair of shoes at fifteen. He spent most of his time cruising on the bay as a me mber of the Ocean Sailing Squadron, and during his free time he could be found collecting money as company representative on the Ring and Crest committee, cutting out coupons as a section editor on the Lucky Bag staff, or solving world crises in the Foreign Relations Club as a consistent " Bull slash. " He spent most of his study hours interpreting the dictionary and unravelling the twisted theories of history and government. Whatever his final career choice, " Spence " will be one officer correctly referred to as " the pride of the Navy. " 364 Class of 1 963 DAVID GEORGE JOHNSTON, JR. Merrick, New York Dave, a product of Merrick, New York, came to the Academy straight out of Chaminade High School where he excelled both in the classroom and on the athletic fields. His senior year Dave was honored as the most outstanding back in the New York Metropolitan area. At the Academy, Dave continued his career on the athletic fields as a stand- out on the plebe football team. While at the Academy, Dave ' s interests took on a new light, the feminine sex. His sense of humor and friendly smile won him many friends of both sexes. Dave could always be found with a pretty girl on his arm whom he had won through his practiced technique. When not studying or dragging, he could usually be found reading one of his favorite science fiction thrillers. We all wish Dave the best of luck in his future career as a Naval officer. WILLIAM JOSEPH KAMAN Aurora, Illinois Born and raised in Aurora, Illinois, Bill came to USNA by way of SECNAV, immediately upon graduation from his hometown high school, Marmion Military Academy. Although he was easygoing, he could be serious when necessary and did not regard anything above " 2.5 " as wasted effort. " Willy Fixit, " as he came to be known, was always quick to smile and was able to see a bit of humor in everything, even in his running battle with the academics. Any problem could keep him busy in one of three ways: solving it, finding out how to work it, or helping someone else with it. Bill was a jack-of-all-trades type of guy. His activities and interests included academics. Concert Band, girls, Radio Club, baseball, photography, and boxing, though not necessarily in that order. His congenial nature and determined spirit will continue to be a valuable asset to him throughout his career. JACK LANE KARSON Riverside, California Jack came to the Naval Academy from Riverside, California, which he maintains is " God ' s country. " No one wishes to dispute the fact that " Kit " made his mark on the Academy. He was a member of the very successful plebe squash team and thereafter became the undisputed company champion in both squash and handball. A constant repeater on the Superin- tendent ' s List, Kit ' s forte was in the foreign language field. With his quick wit and winning personality. Kit made friends with many people other than his classmates. In dealing with those of the opposite sex he assigned each to a geographical location, insuring a delightful companion everywhere during his extensive travels. With his quick smile, wit, and per- sonality. Kit has made many close friendships at the Academy and will continue to do so in his pursuit of a career. Third Battalion 365 ROBERT JULIUS KEARNS, III Mobile, Alabama " Bo " arrived at Navy after spending a year at Marion Institute. Plebe year didn ' t present too many serious problems. However, being a true son of the Confederacy, his main obstacle was trying to convince the upperclass of the South ' s victory over those people north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Although it was a losing battle, he fully made up for it after becoming a member of the upper strata. Besides studying, " Bo " spent his free time in various extracurricular activities, among them ocean sailing and pursuing members of the opposite sex. Although not a staunch militarist. Bo will be remembered by his classmates for his quick wit, especially since it popped up constantly during study hour, and his sharp attitude. After graduation, " Bo " plans to wear Navy wings of gold. How- ever, no matter what branch he chooses, he will be a credit to the Brigade, his service, and his country. RICHARD EDWARD KELL Mosinee, Wisconsin " George " came to the Naval Academy from the " Dairy Land " via the physics classes of Wartburg College. He always had an intelligent opinion on any subject and found himself answering his classmates ' queries on various problems. He had only two major difficulties during his stay at the Academy. He dispensed with the first after the German final youngster year and the other as he accepted the inevitable, his nick- name, after everyone, including his family, decided that he looked like a " George. " Among his sports activities were battalion and company foot- ball, Softball, and volleyball. He was also active in the Masqueraders and the Reception Committee. With his ordered mind, versatility, and determi- nation to do a good job, George will be a welcome addition to the Navy. RICHARD FREDERICK KLEINFELDT Cincinnati, Ohio Rick attended Columbian Prep School in Washington, D. C, where he played both football arid basketball and served on the Student Council. Evidently he was prepared very well both academically and athletically. While at the Academy he maintained an above average academic stand- ing and participated in varsity football and plebe lacrosse as well as intra- mural basketball. Because of a recurring knee injury. Rick had consider- able difficulty in his athletic endeavors here at the Academy. In what spare time he was able to find, he enjoyed collecting and listening to jazz recordings. Rick is happiest when he is either hunting and fishing or boating during his leave time. His many wide and varied interests and his easy manner have accumulated for him his many friends throughout the Brigade. With his air of self-assurance. Rick has the respect of all his classmates. We wish him continued success and the best of luck in his future service, whichever branch he may choose. 366 Class of 1 963 RONALD JOSEPH KLEMICK Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Ron came to Annapolis with an outstanding high school record in both academics and athletics. At St. Joseph ' s Prep in Philadelphia, he starred in baseball as a pitcher and football as a quarterback. Here at the Academy he has continued his outstanding record. Plebe year he was a standout pitcher for the baseball team as well as being quarterback for the plebes. As an upperclassman, Ron has worked his way up to being Navy ' s quarterback. Academically, he has a fine record, being on the Superintendent ' s List several times. All is not work with Ron, as many of his friends know from second class summer. " Hot Dog ' s " social pre- dicaments have given us many a laugh. He has succeeded in all fields of endeavour thus far in his career and is definitely headed for success upon his commission. ROBERT ARTHUR KOTTKE, JR. Trenton, New Jersey Bob comes from Trenton, New Jersey, where he stood high in his high school class and played football. At the Academy he spent most of his free time involved in some sort of athletics. He participated in varsity 150 lb. football, rowed crew, ran cross-country, and played soft- ball. Concerning his Softball experiences, he likes to tell old grads he played in the middle of Dewey Basin. His classmates expected him to organize a polo team or even a cricket club. Bob didn ' t spend all his time at sports; he also belonged to the Foreign Relations Club, Newman Club and had smooth sailing in most of his courses. With all his varied talents, the respect and admiration of his classmates will surely carry over to his men and make him a very effective officer. DONALD MARTIN LACHATA Chicago, Illinois Don came from the humid city of Chicago to the even more humid town of Annapolis via Ithaca, New York, where he spent a year at Cornell University working toward a major in Electrical Engineering. Here he changed his major to Math. Always interested in sports, Don went out for the wrestling team in plebe year, but has since limited his sports efforts to intramurals. After convincing his company officer youngster year, Don was finally able to get his stereo rig approved, and it proved to be his pride and joy for the remainder of his stay at the Academy. Don ' s extracurricular activities were mainly with the Lucky Bag. He also had brief memberships in the Foreign Relations and German Clubs. Never worried about a passing grade, Don made frequent visits to the Superin- tendent ' s List. His goal is a career in the nuclear submarine fleet. We know that he will do as well in all his endeavors as he was able to do here at the Academy. Third Battalion 367 JAMES EDWARD LEEPER, JR. Falls Church, Virginia Brought up in the " Old Navy " tradition by his father, a retired Rear Admiral, Speed decided to give up the confining life of Washington, D. C, to join the ranks of the men in blue. After a short tenure at Columbian Prep, he entered the Academy with the firm desire to make every liberty call for the remainder of his career. At times during plebe year, we thought that the academic departments were going to get him, but, with a little extra work, he made it all right. Always on the move. Speed actively supported the Navy soccer team, as well as many company teams. His achievements do not stop at athletics, however. He was always on hand to help a friend and was a mainstay in the company morale for four years. In Speed, the service will receive a well rounded and versatile officer. JOHN MICHAEL LENTS Seattle, Washington After a year at Seattle University, Mike brought his boundless energy to the banks of the Severn. Neat and exacting by nature, he lost no time in distinguishing himself as one of the best. His cheerful attitude and easy flair for applying his ready wit to the everyday problems made Mike a popular figure with all who knew him. Studies were no big prob- lem and he always had time to help a classmate. His was a familiar form in the handball and basketball courts. Sincere and possessing a calm, easy manner, Mike was a handy man to have around on any occasion from a skull-session to a bull-session. Mike, with an eye on the fair sex, could be counted on to spend a good part of his monthly insult on postage stamps and stationery. A man who always lives by the code of a gentleman, Mike will be a welcome addition to any wardroom in the fleet. AUSTIN SHERWOOD LETT, JR. Milwaukee, Wisconsin According to certain members of our class, Milwaukee has two outstanding products. The second is Austin S. Lett, Jr. Austin came to Navy with an outstanding background as a scholar and an athlete. A leg injury plebe year kept him from participating in varsity athletics. Watching him walk down the passageway port side provided humorous moments during a year when such were few. Never one to concentrate on one subject, Austin consistently made high marks in all his courses. Some of his profs were perplexed at the lack of correlation between attention in class and quiz grades. Wherever his service career takes him, Austin will be respected by those who know him, whether it be as senior, subordinate,- or friend. His intensity and wide range of knowledge will be an asset not only to him, but also to the nation. 368 Class of 1 963 JARY WILLIAM LEWIS Sprmgdale, Arkansas After a year at Arkansas Tech. and nineteen months in the fleet, Lew came to the Academy via NAPS. Being well prepared for Academy life, he found the academics relatively easy and always had plenty of time to hit the squash courts, with an occasional Saturday afternoon spent fish- ing. Lew never ventured far from academics though, and each weekend he could be found out in town getting extra instruction from the local teachers. With a great capacity for a good time or just plain relaxing, the question arose whether Lew spent more time asleep or awake in class. Naturally good natured and easy-going, he made many lasting friends here at the Academy. With his sights set high, Lew plans a career in the Nuclear Fleet of tomorrow. He will surely make the grade in all he attempts, and the Navy will gain a fine gentleman upon Lew ' s graduation. JOSEPH STEPHEN LONGO Norwich, Connecticut Steve came to the Academy after graduating from Norwich Free Academy. While in high school Steve gained valuable experience in playing golf, and many hours at the Naval Academy found him on the course with the golf team. He also was very instrumental in company sports, especially in his youngster year when his company won the colors. Steve was known for his great interest in politics, particularly for his i960 presidential election predictions. In addition to being on the Superin- tendent ' s List, Steve took electives in the field of political science, was a participant in the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conferences, and his company Lucky Bag representative. Steve was always known for his great sense of humor, and never failed to make a friend. He aspires to a career in Navy Air or foreign relations, and will certainly be a credit to the Navy. ROBERT WOODROW LYONS Orangeburg, South Carolina Bob, a true rebel, hails from Orangeburg, South Carolina, and came to the Academy after spending a year at Clemson College. During his four years, he took an active part in many extracurricular activities in- cluding Foreign Relations Club, Lucky Bag Representative, and worked for the Splinter on occasion. Despite his obligations, he always had time for sports, excelling in company Softball and football, and he always held his own in the academic departments as well. Because of his zeal and constant good nature, he was very well liked and will always be remem- bered by his classmates as " Tecumseh IL " Upon graduation, Bob plans to sprout those Wings of Gold ' and spend the rest of his career as a Naval Aviator, and we are all sure that he will be an asset to the service. Third Battalion 369 CHARLES SIDNEY MACLIN San Marino, Califor nia " " Thar she blows " is a familiar cry resounding along the eastern shore, as Chuck spends many of his afternoons sailing on the Severn. His excellence as a salty sailor earned him a berth in the Newport Ocean Race. Chuck seems to have his nose in just about everything as is demon- strated by his record on the pistol team, proficiency in academics, and association with several extracurricular activities. His varied interests range from beautiful girls to old jalopies. He received his first contact with the military life at Marion Institute in Alabama, and soon became an adopted son of the South. Chuck ' s tremendous group spirit will always be remembered. A sharp awareness and keen sense of responsibility will earn for him the deserving reputation of a fine Navy pilot. DAVID GILBERT MAPLES, III Nashville, Tennessee This smiling rebel came North after one year at Columbia Military Academy. Dave prefers southern girls to northern ones and finds time to write several of them. His athletic prowess is well respected, as he has been an outstanding member of the company volleyball, basketball, and Softball teams. He is also an avid football fan and displays a vast knowledge of this sport. The academic departments have always exhibited an aversion to Dave with the .science department showing a particular dis- like for him. His quick wit and engaging smile will make him long remem- bered by all who knew him. These very qualities plus his determination and desire to do his jobs well will make Dave a welcome asset to any wardroom. RONALD RICHARD MATTHEWS Millsboro, Delaware Ron is marked b)4 a frankness of speech and a straight forward character which has earned for him the respect and admiration of his classmates. He was consistently a driving force in any project that he undertook — from playing sports to correcting some unfortunate plebe who needed help. He was a member of the plebe wrestling team, and a valuable asset to his battalion football and lacrosse teams every year. He was also a fierce supporter of Navy ' s teams. He earned his wings in airborne training at Fort Benning during leave after youngster cruise. Being a midshipman, he naturally didn ' t limit his activities to such mun- dane matters as sports and studies. He leaves behind a famous, or in- famous, record in the field of social activities, being a firm believer in a mid ' s occasional need for " wine, women, and song. " His loyalty to the service, habitually neat appearance, and forthrightness will no doubt make him a welcome addition to the Marine Corps. 370 Class of 1963 WILLIAM ROBERT McCANN, JR. Brookings, South Dakota Mac came to Navy straight from Brookings High School in the prairies of South Dakota, and with a cheerful smile and a great sense of humor, he was a welcome addition indeed. Active in intramural sports, Mac was on Brigade Championship teams in company cross country and battalion track. Mac was successful academically, although he can tell about a pretty close brush with Russian, but after this his grades improved every year. On the extracurricular side Mac was an aspiring cartoonist on the Splinter staff, and found plenty of time to allot to the fairer sex, as could readily be seen by a peek into his little black book. Although he ' d only seen salt water once before coming to the Naval Academy, Mac is now a confirmed Destroyerman, and we all wish him luck on the big briny. RICHARD BERNARD McKENNA Scarsdale, New York His life long ambition being to attend the Naval Academy, Rich came directly to these grey walls from All Halows High School in Scars- dale.

Rich always joined in the lively activities throughout our four years and he could be counted in on any party available. His extra- curricular activities, other than sports, included the Log staff and the Foreign Relations Club.

He is now looking forward to a rewarding career in Navy Line as a bachelor — unless his femme fatale catches up with him. MICHAEL JAMES McQUOWN Tucson, Arizona Mike, though returning to Arizona for much needed holidays, still calls the open plains of Nebraska his home. Entering the Academy as an awestruck cornhuckster just out of high school, he quickly made up his mind to make the most of the opportunities at hand. He aimed his Academy years directly at majors in Math and Nuclear Physics. His room soon became a veritable library, and he could always be found passing out much needed information to all who entered. On the athletic field, though never outstanding, he was a solid performer in company cross- country, squash, soccer, and any other team that needed a willing hand. Extra time was devoted to the German, Radio, and Rocket Clubs. His future plans include Navy Line, with heavy emphasis on the Silent Service. Third Battalion 371 PERRY WATSON MILES, III Danville, Virginia Watt came to Annapolis with a remarkable high school record.

His personal appearance and military bearing were always of a high standard, serving as an example to those who observed him.

With the same spirit that brought him through the Academy so successfully, he will no doubt quick- ly establish a creditable record of service and dedication. ROBERT GORDON MILLER Wellesley, Massachusetts Bob came to USNA from Wellesley, Massachusetts. The college there must have given him an inherent sense for beauty, for he never failed to have the most beautiful young ladies down for the weekends. He stood consistently high in both academics and aptitude. This came as no surprise to those who know him, for his diligence at play was matched only by his perseverance in studies, and his personality and bearing were such that " he won the respect and friendship of everyone he met.

His musical preference lies toward popular music, with a flair for rock and roll. Always friendly with everyone but the plebes, he could be found on weekends either in the library studying, in the yard dragging, or in his room writing letters to maintain good diplomatic relations with his many friends. With a soft spot in his heart for his birthplace, Pensa- cola, Brev plans to return there to fulfill another dream, that of becoming a Navy jet jockey. JOSEPH GUY MORRA Bristol, Rhode Island Joe always accompanied his " Hey Pisano " greeting with a hearty slap on the back. As ambitious as anyone could ever hope to be wherever studies were concerned, his subjects included a long study of Latin dishes, some belonging to the kitchen, while others hid themselves under the guise of sultry dark eyes and swaying brown curls. The culinary arts always seemed to lose out to the opposite sex, however. If he can do this, he should be satisfied, but Joe also applied himself as a second tenor in the Catholic Choir. Physical prowess was also shown by his impressive record in the Brigade Boxing program. Combining all these efforts made Joe a valuable asset. Joe stands before three roads leading to the Marine Corps, aviation, or a combination of both. Whichever road he chooses, the service will gain someone who will make of it a proud and successful GEORGE MEREDITH MUSICK Denver, Colorado From the ski country around Denver to the marine atmosphere of the Severn was a sharp change of environment, readily accepted by Meredith. He enthusiastically endured the rigors of plebe year and fought the academics with equal fervor. Meredith ' s active participation on his company ' s football team plus his magnetic personality and guiding leader- ship have proved a fine example for the Brigade. These traits were justly rewarded in selection to the Plebe Summer Detail which granted him a wealth of insight into the inner workings of the Academy. A conscien- tious midshipman and a comprehensive judge of beauty in all forms, he seldoms runs into a problem without carefully anticipating a method of solution. Backed by a record of successful undertakings, and his eyesight permitting, Meredith will strive for his Wings of Gold. Third Battalion 373 JAMES McINTYRE MYERS Corvallis, Oregon Jim Myers is about as Scotch as a Mid can get, having played the bagpipes for noon meal formation on the side terraces.

In the spring and fall, Mac could be found somewhere on the Chesapeake Bay with the Ocean Sailing Squad- ron. He also participated in the Annapolis to Newport and Annapolis to Bermuda races every year. Mac found time to represent his class on the Brigade Honor Committee and to play a prominent part in the Gun Club. He was one of the famous " Cannoneers " that added to Army ' s gloom after every Navy score. Mac always did well in Russian and was the man with the answer for those plebe year professional questions. The Navy has found a hard professional with aspirations towards the Navy Line. ANTHONY JOHN NARGI Passaic, New Jersey Tony came to the Academy after spending a year at Newark College of Engineering, studying for a degree in Electrical Engineering. His winning personality enabled him to make friends easily and was a great asset during his stay at the Academy.

A firm believer in play before work, Tony always seemed to win over academics with a minimum amount of effort and a maximum amount of sleep.

Since then he has been a great benefit to his company sports squads in both soccer and football. He is also a formidable adversary on the battalion tennis courts. Jim was a member of the Photography Club and spent his time in either that pursuit or tinkering with his stereo outfit. During the week Jim was often found burning the midnight oil on academics, but most of the weekends were reserved for escorting a member of the fairer sex around the yard. His easy-going personality has won Jim many friends throughout the Brigade and will take him far in all his pursuits. 374 Class of 1 963 k ROBERT LEO NORTON Orem, Utah Coming to the shores of the Severn River from Orem, Utah, by way of NAPS, Bob channelled all his energies into the Naval profession.

Bob excelled in company sports, pitching his company to a Brigade Championship in Softball, and leading other company teams " through precept and example " in soccer and cross country. The same enthusiasm evidenced in his athletic endeavors was clearly visible in his academic pursuits. Bob had that enviable trait of being able to concentrate and study hard at difficult times, not the least of which was cannons booming in both ears from the stereo hi-fi tangle that somehow put out 32 watts of audio power. " Dago " was a favorite sub- ject for him, and rarely a Russian movie in the Yard escaped his atten- tion. Bob has approached his entire career with a sense of sincerity and devotion which can lead him only to success.

Besides being an active member of the crew team and participating in intramural volleyball and softball, he showed his ability in other fields of endeavor. Music, however, seemed to be his chief interest, for he was a most active member of the Glee Club and Chapel Choir. In what little free time he had, Bob could be found plucking his guitar or playing his stereo. Bob is usually quiet and reserved, yet under this conservative ex- terior is an appealing personality, which, combined with his winning smile, has won him many friends who will remember him in the years to come. EDWARD O. PARHAM Macon, Georgia Ed came to the Academy via the Naval Academy Preparatory School. A " dyed-in-the-wool " Rebel, he hails from the deep South.

He was very active in intramural sports and held down the infield on a Brigade Championship softball team. Sports were not his only interest though. Ed has followed the old Navy tradition of " a girl in every port " , plus a few. Ed ' s will to win makes him a tough competitor on and off the playing field. Ed is slow-talking and congenial and can get along with anyone. He is quick and unfailing to cheer up a depressed friend with a joke or a kind word of encouragement.

BERNARD LEO PATTERSON Rockaway, New York Bernie came to the Academy after a year of preparation at St. John ' s University in New York City. The rigors of plebe year proved to be a testing ground for Bernie ' s sparkling personality and found him very well liked by the upperclass as well as his classmates. He was a center of activity at every shower party or company celebration, and his carefree practical jokes were a mixed blessing to his classmates. Athletics were a major part of his well rounded personality for he played many company and battalion sports. Bernie never worried about academics, but he seemed to do better than most. Surely graduation will find Bernie a popular and welcomed addition to any unit he may join. 376 Class of 1963 JOHN WILLIAM PEARSON, JR.

' A- from a small New England town with a population which barely equaled the number in his incoming class. Pete was quick to win friends with a ready smile. Having been brought up along the Maine coast, his primary interests lay in the water as could be witnessed by the amount of time that he spent on or in it. He was quite active in the photo clufs, and with the pursuit of the other necessities of life — wine, women, and song, he had much to do during his spare moments. It is certain that John ' s future will be closely linked with the sea and that he will be happy in anything he does.

Jerry ' s winning personality and casual sense of humor have made him a host of friends throughout the Brigade. His plans for the future are undecided, but all who know him are- certain that Jerry ' s genial nature and perseverance will take him far towards success.

Dirck always managed to see the bright side of life, and his sense of humor found expression in impromptu cartoons. Dirck never lost sight of the serious side of life or of his objective. Books never presented a problem. His spare time was amply occupied by the " Log and Splinter " staff, the antiphonal choir, and the Italian Club. He was a mainstay for numerous company and battalion sport squads. Of lesser importance but of equal notoriety was his fame as a party boy. Dirck ' s goal is a service career preferably in aviation. His determination and hard work will in- sure him of success. 378 Class of 1963 ROBERT ERNEST PRANGLEY Hyattsville, Maryland Bob, a native of Hyattsville, Maryland, just outside D.

Third Battalion 379 PHILIP JAMES ROONEY Natick, Massachusetts Phil came to the Naval Academy after two and a half years at Colorado University where he was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon.

He was a mainstay of the company sports squads, especially Softball and lightweight football. In other com- pany activities, such as parties and posters, Phil was particularly outstand- ing. He was usually called on to emcee a party, as he seemed to have quite a knack for that sort of thing. His talent for singing and imitations never failed to make a great show. More than any of these qualities, however, Phil ' s classmates will remember him as a fine person. He never failed to go out of his way to help a classmate. Phil ' s sincere interest in others, coupled with his fine personality, will pave the way for a particularly fine and rewarding naval career.

In everything that he did, he worked hard, but always got his 10 hours of sleep. Forsaking his basketball experience, which he received at Coshoc- ton, Ohio, Walt applied most of his talents to intramural football and soft- ball. Through his excellent playing and sportsmanship, Walt was soon one of the best in his field and helped his teams win many championships. Academics were never a big worry to Walt. Although he often started off low, by the time of exams, he was never in any trouble. The plebes will always remember him as the congenial host who asked them many questions and then stimulated their minds with a little extra instruction in physical education.

Memphis, Tennessee His ability to sail through all snares unruffled niakes Runk a truly adaptable person.

By playing on the plebe basketball, football, and baseball teams, on the varsity basketball and base- ball teams, and by singing in the Catholic Choir, this good fellow be- came well known and liked by all his classmates. The description " travel- ing man " never fitted anyone more perfectly for John left his tracks from Hawaii to Paris during his summer leave periods, and this promises to be a pastime that has just begun. Our best wishes follow John in the Fleet ' s air arm, and the best of luck to all young ladies with designing interests in him. PETER PAUL SAVAGE Branford, Connecticut With a good nautical background from the rockbound coast of Long Island Sound, Pete came to the Academy straight from high school. The " master of all trades " of the Seventh Company, he was always will- ing and ready to help any of his classmates with their problems. His academic routine rarely gave him a free study period, since Pete took at least two overloads a term since the start of the elective program. Pete, an ardent sailor, was a member of the varsity and plebe dinghy sailing teams. He was a valuable member of his company winter cross-country team as well. Nearly every activity and club in the Brigade could claim his active participation: NA-10; Drum and Bugle Corps; Concert Band; WRNV; W3ADO, our amateur radio club; the Photo Club and the Gun Club. With a start like this, there is no question in anyone ' s mind that Pete is going all the way to the top.

Hard work and diligence was the philosophy Miles used to maintain a Superinten- dent ' s List average and show his athletic ability. The enjoyment received from his efforts in varsity cross-country and track are evidenced from the maximum effort he put into them. Also, Miles has used much of his leave time to participate in Pentathalon and Triathalon conferences about the country. Although rather sincere in nature, his very subtle sense of humor has provided many humorous occasions and will undoubtedly ac- count for many gay recollections in later life. Friendship and ambition have never been obstacles in Miles ' life, so the only limit to his future aims is the goal he sets his heart and desire to. LUDWIG JOHN SCHUMACHER Albany, New York Coming straight from New York ' s Colonie Central High School, Lu began immediately to absorb anything and everything the Academy could offer him in preparation for his commission in the USMC. He won stars in each of his four years although youngster year, Lu modestly neglected to wear them (mainly because no one told him he rated them). He will graduate with a major in German and hopes to obtain his MA in that subject. His extracurricular activities included the writing of numerous articles for the Trident Magazine and the mastering of the engine room skills on the Academy YP ' s. None of those who know him, can doubt that Lu will make good use of the opportunity offered him by the USMC. He should prove a great asset to the organization whose emblem is proudly displayed on his Academy ring and a credit to the Academy.

Because of the way he pronounced " jelly " he became known as " jelly " During youngster year Austin was known to appear in the most unusual places and it was rumored that his favorite hiding places were in empty lockers. He always enjoyed a good party or a good dance. Austin contributed his vocal talents to the hospital choir, and also participated in the Forensic Club. Just as the Confederates fought the war with determination, such was his attitude while participating in scholastic or athletic events. His motto was; " A quitter never wins and a winner never quits. " Austin ' s high ideals and gentlemanly qualities will be quite an asset to Naval Aviation and to the country which he serves. 382 Class of 1 963 THOMAS LEONARD SELDEN Windsor, Connecticut Upon arrival at the Academy Tom entered whole-heartedly into the activities of plebe year. He spent long hours working industriously to increase his knowledge of the Naval profession. He joined the Musical Club Show and became well known for his portrayal of Squeemish Bronco McGreedy in " The Land Grabbers, " during his plebe year. One also had the opportunity of hearing his New York accent every Sunday as he sang in the Antiphonal Choir. Tom did his best youngster year to take ad- vantage of the free time offered him. He worked on public relations, giv- ing personal guided tours to a number of young ladies during the week- ends. Second class year, however, found him devoting his time to aca- demics. Those men who have the opportunity of serving with To m shall find him an asset to any ship or station. ALAN ROBERT SIM New York, New York " Nick " came to Crabtown after completing his high school educa- tion at Mount St. Michael Academy. " Nick ' s " leadership ability can be traced back to his outstanding high school record, when he was Student Council president and co-captain of the varsity football team. Although his interests have changed slightly, he is still as popular and jovial as ever. Varsity lacrosse takes up most of his time in the fall and the spring. His free minutes during the winter are spent reading a good book or listen- ing to his favorite record album. " Nick ' s " easy going personality fit in well with his recent home in Manasquan, New Jersey. The love of the water which he has developed on the sprawling beach will blend well with- his life in the Navy. We wish the best for " Nick " in his future career. SELDEN MATTHEW SMALL Alexandria, Virginia Matt, born into the military life, entered the Academy from suburban Virginia. Since then he has excelled in various fields, among them mathematics, 150 pound football, and enjoying himself. He was en- dowed with more than his share of coordination, which enabled him to star on the varsity 150 pound football team along with intramural sports in the winter and spring. On the exterior. Matt, with his sharp tongue, caustic wit, and outspoken manner, camouflaged the understanding, con- genial manner which his close friends associated with him. Besides foot- ball. Matt was also very serious about his academics and particularly helpful to any classmates who were puzzled over the following day ' s as- signment. Finally, Matt was an admirer of the feminine gender, putting it mildly. His manner was frank and his actions positive, and this attitude carried into the Fleet will certainly reward him with a successful career. Third Battalion 383 STANLEY KUTZ SMILEY Fayetteville, North Carolina Stan upset the homeland when he packed his bags and left Colo- rado Springs. A natural partygoer, he finally managed to adapt himself to life within Mother Bancroft with only an occasional party every week- end. Participating in many intramural sports, Stan was never satisfied as he spent all plebe year looking for a place to ski. Since nothing was satisfactory, he resigned himself to a new life on the radiator squad. You could always count on Stan ' s casual comments or scintillating remarks at any session unless the new issue of Playboy was out. Weekends would find him out in the yard looking over the latest styles and adding a few names to his list. Even though he left his home at USAFA, Stan is still out to get those wings, and with his casualness and quick thinking he ought to revolutionize Navy Air and make it even greater. HOMER FRANCIS SMITH, II Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio The best compliment that can be paid a person is, " He is a great friend. " Armed with his mom ' s cookies and dad ' s humor, Homer was usually on the lookout for any scheme that would create a laugh and good spirits. A constant smile and loose interpretation of the Reg Book made life as tolerable as could be; with a good class standing and Superinten- dent ' s List regularity to back-up this tolerance. His willingness to give a helping hand to classmates resulted in a well-worn slide rule and a mutual gain of friendship. Wrestling was the favorite sport that he continued here from high school, and many an afternoon was spent in the wrestling loft. Homer ' s future plans include " that girl back home " and a desire for several years of post-graduate work, and he will definitely be a welcome addition to future associates. MICHAEL JOHN SPEAR Sebastopol, California Mike hails from California and like all Californians is proud of it. Mike was an outstanding athlete in high school, but decided to forego varsity sports and concentrate on studies at the Academy. As a result, he is a star man and one of the top men in our class. He has played on several Brigade Championship intramural teams, usually being one of the outstanding members. Mike ' s quick wit and easy-going manner have befriended him to all who know him. Those who don ' t know him and have the opportunity to engage in conversation with him are always sur- prised by his sarcastic and witty remarks: The fact that Mike has taken extra courses is indicative of his desire to better himself. He will be a tremendous asset to whichever branch of the service he decides to enter as he is never content unless he is doing something useful. 384 Class of 1 963 EARL MARCUS STOCKSLAGER Ginghamsbmg, Ohio Mark was born in Dayton, Ohio, on 22 April, 1940.

He moved West with his family, attending high school in Venice, a suburb of Los Angeles, and spent two years at Santa Monica City College. His age and experience gave Ron an edge on most of us in the area of salty tales. But for one thing, female companionship, one could say that wrestling is Ron ' s greatest love. Not having wrestled since he was twelve back in Iowa, on arrival at the Academy, he readily assumed the number one position of the heavyweights on the plebe team, and vaulted into a very successful varsity career. A quick and level-headed thinker, Ron has seldom met a challenge that he could not lick or an argument that he could not win. With the admiration and friendship of his classmates, Ron leaves the Academy to begin his career in flying. ROGER ERNEST TETRAULT Huntington, New York Rog hails from Huntington, Long Island, where he attended Huntington High School. Coming into the Naval Academy right out of high school, he immediately exhibited his athletic prowess by his partici- pation on the plebe gymnastics team. Gymnastics remained his major sport throughout his four years at the academy. His academic endeavors equal his athletic ability in that he consistently maintained an excellent standing in his class. Rog ' s personality is revealed by his constant striving for higher goals through hard work with no loss to Brigade spirit or willingness to help others. His ambition and drive earned Rog many friendships which will remain lasting and rewarding. The branch of the service which he chooses will be gaining a loyal and hard working officer. L Third Battalion 385 CRAIG LEE THRASHER Jamestown, New York " Thrash " is a man of many virtues, the most pronounced of which is his unique ability to get along with his fellow midshipmen. His warm smile and easy-going personality are always welcome in a group. Although not a brilliant scholar, he manages somehow to find time besides his studies to involve himself in several pastimes. Known throughout the class and possibly even the Brigade as the handy man, he delights himself in taking apart electronic and mechanical apparatus to see what makes them tick, sometimes even fixing them. Physical fitness is another of his interests, and he best achieves this by his year round participation on the varsity heavyweight crew. He was a member of the respected ' 60 Plebes who rowed their way to fourth in the Olympic Trials. Hard work and a genuine personality will make Craig a success in his future endeavors in the Service. GEORGE PURCELL TRACY Baltimore, Maryland George came to the Academy from the Fleet and a year at Johns Hopkins University. The transition from a seaman to a plebe wasn ' t quite as hard to him as to others, as he was used to the discipline of Navy life. He had several hobbies which included music — mostly jazz, and reading. Being a music lover he played the piano quite well, using his own arrangements. His biggest asset was lacrosse, for he had several years experience previous to entering the Academy. George was the stal- wart on the plebe and varsity lacrosse teams, playing the frontline attack each year. He was a good friend to all those who know him and would go out of his way to help anyone. His plans for the future are unknown but it is certain that he will excel irregardless of the branch of the Navy he enters after graduation. He will make a fine officer and will gain the respect and friendship of all those who will work with him and under him. DAVID WAYNE UNSICKER Fort Wayne, Indiana Strong with the knowledge that the Navy of iron men and wooden ships was the life for him, Dave set his sails on a career as an officer and competed in the Fleet-wide competition for an appointment to the Academy. Upon successful completion of the Naval Preparatory School at Bainbridge, Maryland, he entered the Academy. During his four years at the Academy, Dave ' s devotion to his chosen career and burning desire to make a success of it caused him to work long hours. Only occasionally did he allow himself the rest and relaxation he so richly deserved. Most weekends he could usually be found in his room studying. Having taken advantage of the opportunity offered him, Dave is certain to be a capable mariner. Beyond that, however, Dave has an easy-going, friendly manner that will make it a pleasure to serve with him. 386 Class of 1 963 t CLYDE JAMES VanARSDALL, III Alexandria, Virginia Clyde, or Van, as he is known to his many friends, came to the Naval Academy from Norfolk, Virginia. Being a Navy junior, Van was something of a world traveler. During his stay in France, he became acquainted with the sport of fencing, wherein he distinguished himself during his stay at the Academy by winning a varsity letter. His proficiency in academics was also demonstrated by his frequent appearances on the Superintendent ' s List. Not all of his time was spent studying or fencing, however, and Van could always be counted on to make an appearance at many of the social functions in and around the Academy. Van ' s wide background and his many interests, coupled with his inquisitive mind and outstanding personality, will make him a valuable asset in whatever he undertakes. I EDWARD LAVIN WALSH Philadelphia, Pennsylvania After a year in electrical engineering at Villanova, Ned came to the Academy. Under the new validation program he started with advanced courses and finished with a major in electronics. Despite his busy academic schedule Ned made time for many school activities. He was a sports announcer for the Public Relations Committee, a four year Hop Committee member, being chairman of the 2 c Ring Dance, and a tenor in the Catholic Choir. Other interests included a well filled address book which resulted in an intricate point system for the selection of a June Week drag. Ned was a staunch backer of company sports and a member of the " First Base Club " . His leadership, tact, and friendly man- ner, coupled with a driving ambition, will assure him both friends and success in his career in the service. RONALD FRANCIS WALTERS Hays, Kansas " Walt came to USNA from the windswept plains of Kansas and will always be remembered for the pride he has in his home state. No- body could say a thing against Kansas and get away with it while he was around. During the winter afternoons he could be found around MacDonough Hall getting in shape for Brigade Boxing, and in the spring and fall he was an avid supporter of company and battalion sports. ■Walt was active in the Newman Club, Public Relations Committee, and German Club as well as being a member of the Masqueraders ' prop gang. No one woman could ever pin " Walt down and he was rarely seen with the same one twice in a row, much to the dismay of all females that knew him. Upon graduation a career in the Navy awaits Walt. He is bound to be a success in anything he undertakes. Third Battalion 387 DAVID A. WELLS Temple, Texas David ' s slow drawl and pleasant smile marked him as a true son of the Lone Star State. He was always ready to help a classmate with the more difficult parts of the assigned lessons and his dry, sometimes sarcastic humor helped to keep spirits high. Dave ' s philosophical com- ments on the annoyances of life were sometimes thought-provoking, but most often they brought a burst of laughter. As an active member of the ocean sailing team, " Gitano " the gypsy, sailed to various parts of the eastern seacoast, making it possible for members of the weaker sex to become acquainted with this easygoing midshipman. Dave ' s interest in writing produced occasional visible results in the Log. In the future the Naval service will greatly benefit from Dave ' s thoughtfulness and fidelity. FRANK RICHARD WHALEN ' Arlington, Virginia An artist who has a wealth of talent is Dick Whalen, hailing from Arlington, Virginia. Athletically he has added his two years high school varsity experience as an end to his winning battalion football teams. Taking time from his studies, he has applied his productive artistic talents in carrying a slave ' s load of work for the Log, designing covers. Navy ' s Men, or applying his inescapable humor to the invention of cartoons ap- plicable to the daily life of each and every midshipman. The girls pinned to his classmates wear the class crest which he designed and considers his best work, although he has dominated Trident contests in all modes of artistic expression. Born into a Navy family he is an advocate of anything that moves rapidly — planes, cars, or wild dances. Dick will be remembered as a man of indefatigable happiness and expressiveness. TED AUGUST WILLANT Huntington, New York Ted came to the Academy upon graduation from Huntington High School in New York. Arriving with the knowledge that U.S.N. A. was the only place for him, he demonstrated his vast abilities by excelling in every manner possible. Ted ' s leadership qualities and friendly per- sonality brought great respect to him in the Hall and on the athletic field where he was an outstanding member of the varsity lacrosse team. There is little doubt of the great success which is in store for Ted. Whatever his choice of service, they will be gaining not only a fine officer but also a fine man. The Class of ' 63 can be proud to have had him as one of its members. 388 Class of 1 963 r I JAMES CLARK WILLIAMS Harriman, Tennessee After spending a year at the University of Tennessee, " Willy " left Harriman for Severn ' s shores. While at the Academy, " J. C. " vigorously applied himself, and in addition to having been on the Superintendent ' s List, he was famous for his 4.0 on the strength test youngster year. A rugged competitor, he was a stalwart member of com- pany and battalion sports squads, including cross-country, track, foot- ball, squash, and soccer. " Willy " s " tour of northern Europe during leave of second class summer was one of the high points of his midshipman life, even though his renowned proficiency in Russian did little to help him in Paris. Always ready with a homespun southern cliche, " J. C. " was warmly regarded by all for his sense of humor and willingness to help others. All signs point to a successful future for " Willy " in whatever branch of the Navy he chooses. I RICHARD HARDY WILLIAMS Pratt, Kansas Dick came East with two years of college under his belt. A true Kansan in every sense of the word, this Jayhawker soon developed a keen appreciation for the sea-going life. He was one of eighteen to spend youngster cruise aboard the squarerigger " Eagle " bound for Eng- land. An ardent runner and track fan, Dick sprinted the cross-country team to many a victory. Battalion squash and tennis, the Log, photo club, and amateur radio station W3ADO helped occupy the rest of his extra- curricular time. Even though he studied electrical engineering before entering the academy, Dick felt that the academic strain a nd grades never came as easy as his friends. Energetic and likeable, Dick will be long remem- bered for his contributions, humorous and professional, to the Brigade. RAYMOND LEE WITTER Claremont, California Hailing from sunny southern California, Ray came to the Academy with a keen mind which proved more than able to cope with the awesome academic load provided by the Academy. Besides his outstanding academic performance, Ray distinguished himself in intramural sports before he discovered his love for sailing and became an active member of the ocean sailing squadron. He could always be counted upon to give a hand to any of his classmates in need of academic help. Even with his full schedule he still found time to participate in the many social functions in and around the Academy. On the weekends Ray could be ' found in the company of his many friends, both male and fe male. Because of his keen mind and congenial personality, Ray is sure to distinguish himself in his military career. Third Battalion 389 JULIAN MAYNARD WRIGHT, JR. Auburn, New York One of the most competent men in his company, " Skip " amazed everyone with his sincere friendliness and enthusiasm. He was the Con- cert Master and Band Librarian of the Midshipmen ' s Concert Band and a member of the varsity Ocean Sailing Squadron. Sailing was his big sport at USNA, as was always readily evident from the number of sailing pictures posted about his locker and room. Two of the highest points of Skip ' s sailing career were his participation in the Annapolis-Newport and Bermuda races aboard Navy ' s schooner " Freedom. " Next to sailing, Skip ' s favorite sports are swimming, skiing, and tennis. He was also a member of his company cross country team, the Musical Club shows, and the Space Club. " Skip " displayed a great love and a solid background in music. His colossal stereo rig and his collection of records could be matched by few midshipmen. " Skip " looks forward to the golden wings of Navy Air. FREDERICK J. YEAGER Arcadia, California Fred came to the Academy from Arcadia, California. While at the Academy Fred participated on the various track teams. Plebe year he won numerals in both cross country and track as well as acquiring a broken foot. Youngster year he was on two championship teams, fall cross country and battalion track, going undefeated in the mile run for the latter. Plebe year Fred got his stars, and youngster year he was on the Superintendent ' s List. To round out his Academy training, Fred was a member of the Rus- sian Club, Foreign Relations and Public Relations Clubs, and the NACA. In whatever field he chooses Fred ' s natural abilities, fine personality, and willingness to get the job done will make him a welcome addition to the Na ' y. Class of 1 963 390 i t: 5i-rrt-=? ' fc.fSsfe ' :: ' •.■{r;- TT? " ' 2r ' igiff;f FdflRTH BATTALION TERRY ALLEN ABELL Warsaw, Indiana Terry came to the Academy after completing one year as an engineering major at Purdue University, and, consequently, was able to validate almost half of his plebe year academics. He quickly adjusted to plebe year and life at the Academy. His determination to excel led to a high academic average, and his athletic ability enabled him to play a prominent role in his company ' s intramural sports. His primary extra- curricular activity was editing the Four Years section of the 1963 Lucky Bag, but he also found time to act as a repairman for almost any elec- trical appliance. Furthermore, he was rarely without a date on the big weekends. Terry has not yet decided whether to pursue his service career in Navy Air or in the Nuclear Power Program, but his ability to accept responsibility and to carry out orders insures his success in the Navy. WILLIAM PETER ANDERSON Kimball, South Dakota Andy must have felt that opportunity was limited in his native Kimball, so he enlisted in the Navy and advanced in three years to aviation electronics technician second class. During this time he saw a good portion of the world aboard the U.S.S. SARATOGA, attached to VAH-9. After a short stay at NAPS, Andy began his tour at the Naval Academy. During plebe summer he made a quick try at football, but his interest finally settled on ocean sailing . When winter rolled around, Andy could be found on the basketball court in the afternoon, fighting valiantly for one of the losingest teams on record. With the return of spring, though, he was back to the yawls. After such a long stretch with Navy Air, Andy is really sold on flying. We are sure that his future will be of such brilliance as to merit much mention in the Brule County News. GARY ALLAN BALDWIN LaCrosse, Wisconsin When asked if he cares for his nickname, Gary replies; " Why shouldn ' t I? As long as I ' ve been in the Navy I ' ve been known as ' Baldy ' . " Gary ' s Naval career started when he left his northwoods home and went to sea on an aircraft carrier. From sea duty Gary went to NAPS, where he received his appointment to the Naval Academy. In four years by Severn ' s shores, Gary has put his Naval knowledge to good use. He has been one of the outstanding leaders of his class. Yet " Baldy " has also found time to play varsity lacrosse, which he dis- covered at NAPS, and to maintain a respectable grade average. During third class year Gary was chosen to attend the Air Force Academy on an exchange weekend. He spent his second class summer on the Plebe Detail. The Brigade will be on the losing end as " Baldy " throws his cap into the air at graduation, but the Service will indeed benefit in many, many ways. 392 Class of 1 963 STEPHEN WAYNE BAUMGART Evansville, Indiana Never really certain of his future while still a barefoot boy in Indiana, " Satch " finally corralled his thoughts and after one year at St. Benedict ' s College decided upon a seagoing career. Using the same energy and initiative which have become so familiar to those who know him, " Bomber " obtained his appointment to the Academy and set about establishing his future. Once inside these immortal halls, Satch decided, to concentrate his efforts more upon athletics than upon mental gym- nastics. Through the concentrated efforts of many, he proved his su- premacy over the academic curriculum and succeeded in making the grade. On the sports scene, his efforts were more rewarding, both in 150-pound football and lacrosse. He gave his all and helped to make the teams national champions. We are ' sure that " Satch " will show this same determination when he goes to sea. In " Satch " the Naval Service has procured another capable and respected officer. TRAVIS NEWTON BEARD Kilgore, Texas " Travo " or " Board " , as his classmates sometimes called him, hails from Kilgore, a small oiltown in East Texas. After high school, where he excelled in athletics, Travis attended Kilgore Junior College. Upon entering the Academy, he found himself swamped with academics, not being a " slash " by any means. At USNA Travis participated in a variety of intramural sports, including football, softball, volleyball, and swimming. He also spent one fall on the varsity 150 lb. football team but found the usual problems of keeping weight down and academics up too strenuous a task and was forced to give it up, despite his player potential. Travis was very much respected by his classmates. His witticisms and injected oral observations proved him to be a person of humor and earned him the title of " The Country Philosopher. " His humorous Ban- croft Hall antics coupled with his selfpride and profound depth of character make Travis a most memorable classmate. Fourth Battalion 393 RICHARD WITHERS BOLTON Flint, Michigan A native of Michigan, Dick came to the Academy straight from high school. His four years were marked by hard work and consider- able success in two major areas. Academically, he did well in all of his courses, maintaining himself on the Superintendent ' s List for the major part of his tenure and also earning his stars. He undertook and com- pleted a mathematics overload program that resulted in a major in that field. Athletically, Dick was strictly an aquatic creature. Being a mem- ber of some of the best swimming teams Navy has had, he could always be found in the pool area. When not swimming for the varsity, Dick was playing water polo for his battalion. Despite his busy schedule, Dick also found time to be an acolyte in the Academy Chapel. With his capacity for work and his natural abilities, Dick should be a fine addition to the officer corps of the Navy. MICHAEL BLAKESLEE BRACY 5 . Louis, Missouri " Brace " came to the Academy riding on a crest of academic honors, GM and National Merit Scholarships among them. Although he came directly from St. Louis University High School, he validated half of plebe year academics and has been on the Superintendent ' s List ever since. In spite of his high grades, Mike has never let his studies keep him from athletics or cheat him out of liberty. Plebe year he was a mem- ber of the swimming team and has since been active in intramural squash. Mike seems to be at his best at a party after a football game with an attractive girl on his arm and a rum and coke in his other hand. With his good sense of humor and his major in nuclear engineering, " Brace " should be assured of success wherever the Navy sends him. WILLIAM SHIELDS BRINKLEY Army Chemical Center, Maryland Bill came to the Academy from an Army family after graduating from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute. He won a Presidential Appoint- ment which indicates his ability to reason with academics, though at times they seemed really unreasonable. Being familiar with the Balti- more area, he could always be relied upon to supply his classmates with good looking drags. Spending most of his time in the gymnasium. Bill built himself into a respectable gymnast, specializing in the sidehorse. Bill ' s sly humor, diversified record collection, and warm friendship make him a good roommate and will make him a welcome shipmate in years to come. 394 Class of 1 963 PETER AIDAN BROWNE Bronx, New York Pete was born in North Carolina but moved to New York when he was four. After graduation from Cardinal Hayes High School, Pete entered the Academy, where he found time to participate in Light- weight Crew, Catholic Choir, and the Public Relations Committee. Among his many and varied interests, Pete enjoyed good music, the theatre, and travel. As a member of the nineteenth company " contest club, " Pete won a few checks with which he intends to purchase status symbols when he graduates. During dull moments, Pete ' s subtle sense of humor added much to the well being of all. With the desire to become an admiral and with the ability to do it, Pete should have no trouble in future years. VERNON GEORGE BROWNE Holyoke, Massachusetts " V.G. " came to the Academy after completing one year as an engi- neering major at the University of Massachusetts and was able to validate two of his plebe year courses. Coming from an Air Force family, " V.G. " had no trouble making the adjustment from a civilian to a mili- tary school. During his plebe year most of his extracurricular time was devoted to ocean sailing. Vern ' s good sense of humor and his easy- going nature insure his success upon graduation. WILLIAM ROGER BURNS Salt Lake City, Utah After several switches of residency early in his life. Bill finally was able to adopt Salt Lake City, Utah, as his home town. His high school days were spent at Olympus High School in Salt Lake City. Following high school. Bill immediately enlisted in the Navy. During the two years, Bill was stationed at New York and at Dam Neck, Virginia, where he attended the Naval Guided Missile School. After graduation from NAPS, Bill then entered the Academy. While at the Academy, Bill rowed crew, took part in Russian club activities, and pursued his hobby, handball. After graduation we are sure that Bill will be a welcome addition to any wardroom in the Fleet. Fourth Battalion 395 DAVID THOMAS BYRNES Alton, Illinois Dave, who hails from the Prairie State, traded for some unknown reason the carefree life of the University of Illinois for the rigors of the Naval Academy. He met the challenge with his easygoing manner and quickly became involved in academics, concert band, choir, and intra- mural athletics. Four years on the Severn went by quickly, and before he knew it, he was throwing pennies at Tecumseh for the last time. Outside of girls, Dave ' s favorite topic of conversation was usually sub- marines. His personality and desire to do his best will make him a suc- cess in whatever he undertakes. ROBERT LEWIS CAMPBELL Staten Island, New York Bob attended Columbian Prep School in Washington, D.C., after graduation from high school, where he was class president. As a plebe. Bob found time to play football and baseball, putting his experience as high school captain in each sport to good use. He also became a member of the Newman and Spanish Clubs. Youngster year found Bob turning his full attention to baseball, where his efforts on the diamond helped win many a ball game for the Navy Nine for the next three years. He also gave much of his time to his company by participating in company football and basketball. Bob has found his four years at the Academy very rewarding both in academics and extracurricular activities. His easygoing manner and sense of humor have won him many lasting friendships. Bob ' s main interests while at the Academy have been good music, interesting books, and taking care of that special female back home. WILLIAM HOWARD CAMPBELL Burbank, California Bill, a quiet, unassuming fellow from Burbank, California, came to the Academy directly from prep school. During his four years he sprea ' d his time between academics, intramural sports, and the winning of contests which have netted him a considerable sum of money. Bill ' s chief outside interest was hot-rodding, a natural interest for a Southern Californian. At the Academy, Bill claimed the flattest " flap-top " haircut, one of his many achievements. Upon graduation Bill plans to seek duty on the west coast. But wherever he goes, we are sure that he will con- tinue his winning ways and become a great success in the Fleet. 396 Class of 1 963 JOESEPH FRANCIS CARROLL Haddonfield, New Jersey Joe came to the Naval Academy from St. Benedict Prep School in New Jersey. His family moved from Cranford, New Jersey, during his youngster year and he now calls Haddonfield, New Jersey, home. Having excelled in football and basketball at St. Benedict ' s, Joe played com- pany soccer, basketball, and baseball at USNA. While most of his interests were along athletic lines, he found time to devote his talents to the Public Relations Committee and the Reception Committee. Joe is looking forward to a future in Navy Air and hopes to be a jet jockey. We wish this fine officer good luck as he begins his career in the Service. PEREGRINO LIZADA CASAQUITE Lambunao lloilo, Philippines After a year at the Philippine Military Academy, " Cas " had little trouble adjusting to military discipline at the Naval Academy. His pre- vious training served him well during plebe year and saw him through the perils of four years of academics as well. During his stay at USNA, " Cas " made good use of his spare time by engaging in many of our extracurricular activities. He was a member of the Foreign Language Club, Radio Club, and the Reception Committee. As host of the different visiting athletic teams, " Cas " won many friends for the Brigade. His efforts on the Juice Gang helped make many Academy projects a success. Sports- wise, " Cas " tried his hand at boxing, cross country, and gymnastics. However, swimming was one field which he took quite a while to appreciate. His inherent cheerfulness and cooperative spirit made his friendship a truly valued possession. " Cas " is a foreign national, and upon graduation from USNA he will receive his commission in the Philippine Navy. ANTHONY JOSEPH CELEBREZZE Cleveland, Ohio Tony, an easygoing, friendly person was quick to make many longlasting friendships among his new classmates here. At the success- ful completion of plebe year, Tony embarked on board the USS In- dependence to spend the summer cruising the East Coast. On board he found that aviation interested him greatly, and it has remained one of his major interests here at the Academy. Upon completion of this cruise, Tony chose to continue his training with the Army. He underwent Airborne training at Fort Benning and received his paratrooper wings shortly thereafter, to the honor of the Brigade. After a quiet youngster year, Tony chose to remain at the academy and help prepare the class of ' 65 for its place in the Brigade. Tony was always interested in sports and helped his company and battalion to win many honors, including a Brigade championship in soccer two years in a row. Fourth Battalion 397 ARTHUR DORON CLARK Catotisville, Maryland Big man on campus, six-foot seven Art Clark, set sail for the Academy from nearby Baltimore. Although an asset to any basketball team. Art stuck with his first love, swimming. Art ' s zest for casual liv- ing soon affects anyone who comes in contact with him. With his quick mind and ready wit. Art attacks any situation with enthusiasm and interest. Art maintained an active membership in WRNV and was ad- vertising editor for the Trident Magazine. He was also interested in music, though sometimes his ability with a Uke was questioned as musi- cal. With his ready smile, hard work, and perseverance. Art should be a valuable asset to any organization into which his course may lead. STEPHEN HOLLIDAY COESTER Webster Groves, Missouri Steve, or " Stevie B., " as we know him, entered the Naval Acad- emy after graduating from high school in the land of mules and corn cob pipes, better known as Missouri. Steve never had time to be smoking the old corn cob pipe in Bancroft Hall, because he was too busy trying to beat the academic departments. Evidently, he found some degree of success in this endeavor, being constantly on the Superintendent ' s List and a wearer of " Stars. " This he did without studying as much as the rest of us. Academics were not the only thing that came easily to Steve. Though small in stature, he was a fine athlete who lent his strong right arm to the varsity tennis team each year and excelled on the company basketball team during the winter months. The " Show- Me " state ' s contribution to the Navy has definitely shown us. JOHN MONTGOMERY COLYER, JR. Neptune Beach, Florida Jack helped to prepare himself for Annapolis by a year ' s stay at The Citadel. A fine athlete in high school, he continued to do well in athletics as well as in academics at the Academy, though he made no special claim in regards to his proficiency in plebe and youngster Russian. During his four years Jack was a tennis enthusiast in many of his off hours. Furthermore, he did a fine job on the Hop Committee during plebe year. The company basketball team will miss Jack as will his many classmates who had the privilege of knowing him. Jack will always be an asset to any command that he serves. 398 Class of 1963 GARY CHRISTOPHER COMFORT Lynn, Massachusetts Gary was one of the natural " non-sweat slashes " to whom his classmates rushed for help. Coming from Lynn, Massachusetts, he retained a distinctive New England accent. He came straight from high school and always did very well at the Academy. His extracurricular activities consisted of writing letters to his girl and winning contests. He spent his four years bolstering the spirits of his intramural sports teammates. Upon graduation, Gary plans to continue in the nation ' s service as a member of the " Aerospace Team. " BERNIS BURL CONATSER, JR. Elgin, Oregon Bernie, better known as " Bernus, " has made USNA a much livelier establishment during our stay on the Severn. Always quick to join in both the work and play — mostly the play — of academy life, he has gained many friends. Bernie never worried about the books too much but still stood well in his class. His biggest worry was in try- ing to find enough time to pursue his many interests, both academic and extracurricular. Affable and lighthearted in nature he usually found a way to brighten the dreariest of days. Yet amid all the fun there is a serious dedication in the character of Bernie which will always bq a great asset to the Navy. JOSEPH TIMOTHY COOK Ramsey, New Jersey Tim entered the United States Naval Academy via a Congressional appointment, following graduation from Ramsey High School in Ramsey, New Jersey. He maneuvered through plebe year with a minimum of scars, and soon was known as one of the friendliest men in the Brigade. Although he quickly adapted to Maryland, he never let his love for New Jersey die, and he was often heard expounding on her many fine points. Tim spent much of his time on the athletic field, competing for his company in football, softball, and volleyball. His interest in politics helped make the English, History, and Government Department his favorite. Throughout his four years at the Naval Academy, Tim maintained a good academic standing, although he was afforded much opposition by the Science Department. However, he never let his studies interfere with a good bridge game or discussion. Being an avid follower of sports and politics, Tim is a good bet to contribute much to the wardroom conversation. Fourth Battalion 399 ROBERT EDWARD COOPER Bessemer, Alabama This " Southern Gentleman " came to the Academy from the " Heart of Dixie, " Bessemer, Alabama. He was always content when he could expound upon the merits of the " Sunny South " in a deep Rebel drawl. Bob participated in plebe football and baseball and was always a stalwart on the company and battalion intramural teams. Bob ' s hobbies at the Academy consisted of a close following of intercollegiate and professional athletics, reading, collecting, and letter writing. We know that this man will carry with him his Southern charm and win- ning ways throughout his service career. WILLIAM LAURENCE COULTER Oak Ridge, Tennessee Coming from the " Atomic City " nestled in the hills of Tennessee, this staunch rebel never found academic life difficult. Besides appearing frequently on the Superintendent ' s List, Bill ' s other interests included sports, guitar playing, and the young ladies of Annapolis. A physics major at USNA, Bill hopes to further his education at post graduate school after an initial tour of duty with the submarine fleet. Bill ' s relaxed nature made him a pleasant roommate throughout his four years at the Academy and will undoubtedly make him a welcome addition to any wardroom in the fleet. MICHAEL PAUL CRONIN Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Throughout his tenure at the Academy, Mike was known by many nicknames, most of them referring to his highly mutilated and oft-broken nose which lent his profile a definite touch of individuality. Although he came to the Academy straight from Carrick High School, he always did well in academics, constantly flirting with the Superintendent ' s List and participating extensively in the overload program. For four years he was a stalwart on the battalion and company football teams. He also managed to be active in the Newman Club, Portuguese Club, and the Gun Club. However, Mike ' s talents never seemed to achieve full bloom until liberty time. Then, utilizing maximum ingenuity with mini- mum sleep and cash, he always managed to get the most out of every liberty. Mike most certainly has a distinguished career ahead of him as a Naval Aviator. 400 Class of 1 963 ELI DABICH, JR. Chicago, Illinois After a year at both New Mexico University and Purdue Uni- versity, Eli came to the Academy to add his name to the " long blue line. " " Penguin, " as he came to be called because of his distinctive walk and minor encounter with the Sub Squad, never did have trouble with his studies. He always succeeded in placing his name on the Superin- tendent ' s List while still keeping up with his hobbies of photography and bowling. Outdoor sports ranked high on Eli ' s list of extracurricular activities, of which he found to his particular liking, plebe baseball and intramural baseball and football. Numerous things can account for the Penguin ' s many friends, the most outstanding of which are his bright smile and broad sense of humor. THOMAS BRODRICK DADE Baltimore, Maryland For every nine months of the academic year Tom ' s face was a familiar one whether he was over at small craft facilities or on board the Naval Academy Yacht, Highland Light. Along with being a main- stay on the ocean racing squadron he held the distinction of being the first man in his class to receive his yawl command (plebe summer) and his class " A " command (beginning of second class year). He also participated in two Newport races and one Bermuda race. Tom is an ambitious young man and worked hard with the intention of receiving a mathematics and an engineering major from the Academy. His future goals include postgraduate school and the submarine service. He is a dedicated person and should cut out a fine career for himself in the Navy. FREDRIC COOK DAVIS Dallas, Texas Fred, an easy going Texan by nature, was a member in good standing of every endeavor he undertook while at the Naval Academy. Many a dreary day was brightened by his cheery disposition and sharp wit. His company mates will long remember his relaxed " Don ' t worry about it " attitude. Academics were never really a problem for Fred. Though he was seldom seen with a book in his hand, especially during study hour, he still completed all his courses in addition to majoring in the English, History, and Government Department. A native of Dallas, Fred was a former Texas A M Cadet and spent some time in the regular Navy before coming to USNA through NAPS. All who know Fred agree that his dedication and ability to lead will undoubtedly be a tremendous asset to tomorrow ' s Navy. Fourth Battalion 401 FELIX EUGENE deGOLIAN, III Atlanta, Georgia The son of a Naval Academy graduate, " Poky " hails from Atlanta, Georgia, a fact he never lets one forget. He was always immensely proud of his family, which he claims is now large enough to field a complete football team including the coach. He may be remembered by the varsity lightweight crew teams as the heaviest coxswain on the squad. In this capacity " Foley " directed his shell to a surprising victory in the Easterns during his youngster year. He may also be remembered by his teammates as a hustling quarterback for the plebe lightweight football team. " With his many Southern colloquialisms and his friendly smile, no one who knew him well will ever forget him. Certainly, " Foley " can look forward to a successful career in the Fleet. JOHN OLIVER DONELAN Columbia, South Carolina Ollie ' s easygoing nature and friendliness won him a great many friends among his classmates and members of the other three classes. This same personality was also evident in that he was seldom without an attractive date for any special athletic event or social function. After a year at Clemson, Ollie chose the Naval Academy as the place to begin his future. At Clemson he was a member of the " freshman basketball team and continued to participate at the Academy, playing for the plebe team and for his company and battalion teams his last three years. During second class summer Ollie ' s interests in the Navy became con- centrated on Naval Air, and graduation will no doubt find him receiving orders to the Naval Air Basic Training Command in Pensacola, Florida. CHARLES ANTHONY DONOVAN, JR. Maiden, Massachusetts Chuck entered the Naval Academy after graduation from high school and a year in the Naval Reserve. Like all plebes he encountered many difficulties in academics, but he took them in stride and soon he was developing a talent in the literary field. He was the company honor representative and spent much time writing for the Splinter. However, his greatest achievement, next to graduation, was the work he did for the 1965 Lucky Bag, helping to make this, our book, one of the best in Academy history. 402 Class of 1963 MICHAEL JAMES DUNN Detroit, Michigan While at the Academy Mike has always displayed a most serious and dedicated attitude towards the various facets of Midshipman life. Residing in Detroit, Michigan, Mike started his military career early by at- tending Marmion Military Academy in Aurora, Illinois. After high school he spent three years as a mechanical engineering student at Michi- gan State. Because of his prior engineering experience, technical subjects came easy to him, however he had several encounters with the Russian and English Departments. He was a member of the varsity fencing squad and took great interest in the Rocket Club, too. Letter writing and photog- raphy occupied the remainder of his free time. All who know Mike realize his future potential as an officer in the Naval Service. DAVID LOYD DURFEE St. Louis, Missouri Dave, an Army " brat, " came to the Academy on a Senatorial appointment from Missouri. Born at Fort Benning, Georgia, Dave would rather call St. Louis his home. An avid model railroader, he was always investing his " monthly insult " in new locomotives. By the time he be- came a second classman, Dave had attained the position of Vice President of the Portuguese Club. He gave a good showing as a member of the Dinghy Sailing Team, while also playing battalion tennis and company cross country. One of his brightest memories at the Academy was winning an Army B-robe from his brother at West Point. Dave ' s good humor and pleasant disposition will pave the way for his success in the fleet. FRANK EUGENE EISSING, III Norfolk, Virginia A life-long ambition was fulfilled when Frank left his home town of Norfolk, Virginia, and entered the Naval Academy. His four years on the Severn were spent in many industrious activities ranging from sports to those quiet Sunday mornings talking to his " One and Only " on the telephone. " Gymnastics rates high as a sport of physical co- ordination and dexterity, " says Frank. He saw action on the plebe gym team as well as the varsity team. Pursuing academics to the fullest extent, Frank attained the Superintendent ' s List many times. Engineering was Frank ' s favorite subject as exemplified by his taking full advantage of the Engineering elective program. Also a member of the Honor Com- mittee, Frank ' s many activities proved his versatility in many different fields. We could always count on him for help in any task that would come up. Fourth Battalion 403 HOLGER GUSTAV ERICSSON, JR. Brooklyn, New York After graduating from Brooklyn Technical High School, " Eric " enlisted in the U.S. Naval Reserve. He spent a little over a year on active duty before coming to the Naval Academy from the Naval Prepara- tory School at Bainbridge, Maryland. " Eric " then proceeded to partici- pate in no less than eleven extracurricular activities. Among these were W.R.N. v., Public Relations Committee, Reception GDmmittee, German Club, and many others. He had a tough time plebe and youngster year with academics, but he began to pick up as time wore on. He found his place with the Brigade Drum and Bugle Corps and enjoyed playing. Although he is no great athlete, " Eric " enjoyed playing a number of intramural athletics including football, fieldball, and squash. He especially enjoyed sailing and was a member of the sailing squadron. GEORGE PATRICK FARRIN Battle Creek, Michigan George claims Battle Creek, Michigan, as his home town, having lived there most of his life. After completing high school, he entered the Naval Academy by means of a competitive Congressional appoint- ment from August E. Johansen. Once here, he pursued a variety of intramural sports, including crew, lacrosse, gym, and squash. After a typical day he could be observed playing sports, studying, sleeping or just relaxing. He was, at times, a frequenter of the ED squad and did his share to keep the system operating normally. Wherever he goes in the Navy, we are sure that George will contribute to the betterment of all. JAMES DONZE FIELD Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio A native of Cuyahoga Falls, where he attained prominence as a half-miler, Jim quickly adapted himself to the rigorous life at the Naval Academy. His vigor and endurance brought him through two years with the plebe and varsity lightweight crew teams. His nimbleness afoot made him an ardent competitor in plebe and intramural cross-country as well as intramural football and softball. Although carrying a heavy schedule with additional elective courses, Jim found time to be Lucky Bag representative while keeping his name on the Superintendent ' s List. Many room inspectors were shocked by the huge bass fiddle that he kept stored atop his locker. This bass provided background for musical entertainment at numerous company parties. Jim ' s satirical mind and alacrity of reply was the source of habitual amusement for his many companions. But behind his comic front lay a rationality that has won him many lifelong friends at the Academy. 404 Class of 1 963 JAMES RICHARD FIELDS Bessemer, Alabama Graduating from high school in 1955, Jim is certainly one of the oldest members of the class of 1963. Before coming to the Academy, Jim filled his time by enlisting in the Navy. After completing recruit training in San Diego, California, Jim was stationed at the Los Alamitos Naval Air Station in Long Beach, California. He then attended the Guided Missile School in Dam Neck, Virginia. From there, he went to NAPS, where he remained until he exchanged his rate as a guided missileman third class for that of a Midshipman. While at the Academy, Jim participated in intramural squash, fieldball, and basketball, as well as, plebe and varsity squash. He also maintained an active interest in the Russian club. Come graduation we are sure that success will follow Jim wherever he goes. I CHARLES GEORGE FISHBURN Spokane, Washington " Fish, " as his classmates fondly called him, entered the Naval Academy after graduation from high school in Spokane, Washington. The good education he received there served him well during his four year stay at USNA. He did not spend all his time studying but made very good use of his spare time on extracurricular activities. He was a member of the Foreign Language Club and was also an active member of the Reception Committee. Judging from the thank-you notes received from the different visiting athletic teams, " Fish " and his group must have really done an outstanding job. He also did his share on the sports pro- gram. On fall and spring weekends he was usually out with the sailing team. During the spring of plebe year he tried his luck on varsity football and in the summer of second class year he also participated in the Annapolis-Newport race. GEORGE RODWELL FISTER Tulsa, Oklahoma Hailing from landlocked Tulsa, Oklahoma, George had never seen a boat until his arrival at Annapolis. His past experience with the nuts and bolts of racing cars gave way to an interest in the rivets and beams of ship design and nuclear engineering. He may be remembered for the design of a certain ship, displacing 90 tons, 400 feet in length, and having a top speed of 55 knots. After academic hours, George could be found in the fencing loft with Coach Deladier ' s lancers. On weekends George became water-borne in one of the yawls or knockabouts. His insatiable interest in engineering, plus his ability to do a good job, well mixed with a lively sense of humor, should lead to a successful and rewarding career. Fourth Battalion 405 ROLAND GUY FONTAINE Woonsocke(, Rhode Island Curly came to the Academy after a two month tour of civiHan life, following a three year hitch in the Marine Corps. As a plebe, lightweight crew dominated the better part of the year, with steam EI just behind. As an upperclassman, the French Club, company soccer, battalion squash, and battalion lacrosse made up his extracurricular ac- tivities, still followed by steam EI. Curly ' s vibrant personality will make him a hit wherever he goes. He has his sights set on a career in Aviation. PAUL SCOTT FORMAN Borger, Texas Coming straight from Borger High School, this typical Texan with the booming voice was Texas ' gift to USNA. " Tex " , a big talker with big ideas, made a favorable and lasting impression with his class- mates. Although not a slash at academics, he made up for this lack by his winning ways with the young ladies. Plebe year found " Tex " devoting time to plebe fencing. He also was a member of the Gun Club, the Cannoneers, the hospital choir, the Portuguese Club and the automobile committee. An avid sports car fan, " Tex " could always be counted on to have the latest information from the auto world. Looking toward the future, Tex will be an outstanding asset to whatever service he chooses to make his career. ABEL ADOLFO GARCIA Corpus Christ!, Texas A native son and leading proponent of one of our nation ' s larger states (Texas to be exact), Abel made a very substantial contribution to the Naval Academy during his four years. Academically, he was very much at home in the mathematics, science, and engineering departments. His only nemesis was the venerable English, History, and Government Department, but his singular accomplishments in the other departments were more than sufficient to place him on the Superintendent ' s List. Abel was also an avid supporter of all Academy teams and an active and skilled participant on many intramural squads. His hard work and diligence on the squash courts were rewarded by membership on the Brigade championship teams. With such accomplishments as those behind him coupled with his inherent good nature, Abel will undoubtedly be a fine addition to the Navy Team. 406 Class of 1 963 VINCENT JAMES GILROY, JR. Massepequa, New York Vince is the unchallenged " Madison Avenue Cowboy " of the Class of 1963. He gave up football scholarships to Dartmouth, Princeton, and Lehigh in order to satisfy his yearn for the sea. He earned numerals in battalion football and played varsity golf at the Academy. His fine academic record is a good indication of his innate characteristics — deter- mination and fortitude. His academic target is a master ' s in mathematics and there is no doubt that he will receive it, for whatever Vince does and wherever he goes, success is sure to follow. ROGER BURTON GLAES Coronado, California Roger, a Navy Junior, came to the Academy straight from high school. Being a Navy Junior, he has lived in several places, but he has always claim ed Coronado, California, as his home town. Rog was easy to get along with and his extracurricular activities included dragging. He was also on the REEF POINTS staff and culminated his efforts as Editor. During his four years he participated in intramural sports and the YP Squadron. Though he did fairly well with his books, he wasn ' t inclined toward the academic as much as toward the military-professional aspect of Academy life. We feel that he will do well in the Fleet and wish him " fair winds and following seas. " DAVID LOCKWOOD GREENE Detroit, Michigan " Dave " brought with him a true party spirit from a year at Notre Dame, and though he often suppressed this spirit for the demands of academics, he always carried along the ability to be " one of the gang. " Dave could understand a math professor ' s theoretical lecture and explain the sticky points to his classmates, which he was always willing to do even at the expense of his own work. Yet he was also the kind of person who could combine a down-to-earth attitude with his unusual ability with the books. He was a natural leader in a brigade of men. The girl who gets him will probably have to spend many hours agreeing to the virtues of northern Michigan, or tactfully defeating him at tennis, but she can also count on following him through an interesting and rewarding career. Fourth Battalion 407 MATTHEW MICHAEL GRETCHEN Windsor Heights, West Virginia " " Butch " came to the Naval Academy from Windsor Heights, West Virginia, and never stopped telling people about it. He spent a year of preparation for the Academy ' s curriculum at Wheeling College in Wheeling, West Virginia. Always a staunch and enthusiastic supporter of Brigade activities, " " Gretch " participated in German Club and Newman Club. Because of a keen interest in scholarly pursuits, he always stood in the upper portion of his class and was among the very highest in the class in Mathematics. In addition, " Butch " managed to provide sufficient time from his studies to do extensive reading in literary and political fields and to further his interests along musical lines. An avid Pittsburgh Pirates and the West Virginia Mountaineers fan, he was a stalwart on company volleyball, fieldball and softball teams. Because of his ability to meet and get along with people, " " Gretch " has made many friends here and will go a long way in the Service. PHILIP STANLEY GUBBINS South Bend, Indiana Phil came to the Naval Academy after one year at Indiana Uni- versity. By means of his pleasant manner and winning personality he soon made a place for himself in the Brigade. His musical talents were readily discovered and put to good use in the Drum Bugle Corps and the Concert Band. He quickly rose to the top of both organizations by displaying not only musical ability, but strong leadership qualities and a keen knack for organization. Popular with members of all classes throughout the Brigade, Phil could always be found with a smile on his face and a laugh under his belt, qualities that will take him far in any field he chooses. Upon graduation Phil plans on entering Submarine School, and there is no doubt that he will go straight to the top by way of the bottom. The Naval Service has an outstanding officer enter- ing its ranks, and all members of the Brigade join his classmates in wishing him smooth sailing in the years ahead. GEORGE ROBERT GUEST Long Beach, California Many of us think of George as an advertising member of the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce, since he will always tell you about life on the other coast. In his life as a mid he has had many interests and activities as exemplified by his fine record. The Superintendent ' s List saw George many times during his four years, his main academic interest being in science. By becoming a member of the Advanced Science and Mathematics Seminar, George broadened his outlook in science. In the sports field, one could find George playing third base for both the plebe and varsity baseball teams. Squash, football, volleyball, and golf interests made George a pretty hard fellow to get hold of at times. After leaving the Severn, George is looking forward to his Service career with anticipation and an eagerness to serve well. 408 Class of 1 963 Waterloo, Iowa JERRY LYNN HARKEN Jerry, a very sportsminded individual, was an enthusiastic wrestler. During his plebe year, he made the plebe wrestling team and in the ensuing years he joined other matmen on battalion teams. Waterpolo, volleyball, football, and fieldball were other challenges that he met with equal drive. One of Jerry ' s Brigade activities included working on this section of the Lucky Bag. We could always count on him to help Brigade spirit along by pushing a paint brush around for those football posters every fall. Despite his many tasks, Jerry maintained a good aca- demic average and especially enjoyed solving a tough problem in math- ematics. All of these assets describe Jerry Harken, and coupled with his witty personality, they are sure to make jerry a fine asset to the Service and his commanding officer. ROBERT LAWRENCE HARPER Bangor, Maine Bob came to the Academy from the backwoods of Maine, complete with a " down-east " accent, after completing three years at the University of Maine. His activities ranged from debating to dragging every weekend of his last three years at USNA. In the field of sports. Bob was a key member of intramural basketball, squash, and fieldball teams. In any free moments when not dragging, he could be found in his pad resting his head on an advanced chemistry or physics book, studying these courses by his unique osmosis system. Bob was very active in the Newman Club as well as in Forensics Activity. We all will remember him for his combination of sincerity and wit. He was a true friend to all who knew him and never refused to give much-needed aid on an insoluble skinny problem. Bob will do well in whatever endeavor he pursues after grad- uation. DANIEL KRAFT HENNESSY Summit, New Jersey Dan with his Irish wit and sparkling personality was able to win the admiration and friendship of all. For most people, to be able to graduate number one academically would require complete devotion to their studies. But this is what made " wake-em-up Willie " so outstanding. If he was not found on the varsity pitching mound throwing Navy into national esteem, he would be found balancing out our class treasury, lending helpful advice, or participating in his myriad extracurricular ac- tivities Many of his classmates owe their diplomas to his continual tutoring. One would never find the Deacon in an argument, for he would quickly win you over to his side. Dan brought his athletic success into his social life, by playing the field. With Dan ' s persistent enthusiastic determination and uncanny sense of doing well, success is sure to remain with him. Fourth Battalion 409 THOMAS CHARLES HESLOP Coffeyville, Kansas After attending Coffeyville College for a year, Tom decided to make his place in the sun at the Naval Academy. Tom didn ' t have much trouble with academics except that he still shudders every time he walks past the Foraign Languages building. Most of Tom ' s time was spent working on his mathematics degree; however, this didn ' t stop him from being the crew team manager, and becoming a member of the Officer ' s Christian Union. Tom also found time to teach Sunday School in Annapolis. Although he seemed to worry all the time, Tom was always ready with a clever little joke when his roommates were feeling bad — or good. Whichever service Tom chcx)ses. Supply Corps or Civil Engineering Corps, he is sure to be a great success. DON RICHARD HIDY Dayton, Ohio Don arrived at the Academy after spending a year with the Buckeyes of Ohio State. Although a solid foundation in academics en- abled him to validate most of plebe year academics, he found it impossible to validate plebe year entirely and, at times, probably thought, " Why-o, Why-o, did I ever leave Ohio. " But youngster year found Don a year ahead of his classmates in academics, and feverishly studying for a major in the social sciences. Far from being a one-sided man, Don ' s com- petitive spirit and athletic abilities were demonstrated in many battalion and company sports, and his leadership and organizational talents were felt in the NACA, OCU, and Foreign Relations Club. On weekends, Don switched from student to Sunday School teacher. With all these activities he still managed to keep his social life flourishing. Whatever part of the Navy Don chooses, his proven capabilities will serve well his country, the Navy, and his shipmates. MAJOR KENNETH HOWE Miami, Florida Major hails from Miami Senior High School where he lettered in both football and track and was class president. Before entering the Academy he attended Columbian Prep School and received his appoint- ment through the Naval Reserve. As a plebe, Major was a member of the football and lacrosse teams and helped both teams complete fine seasons. During youngster year Major continued his sports activities, although hampered by injuries, and was an outstanding asset to his squads. Academics were a challenge to Major which he met with above average grades. While not participating in sports or studying. Major used his time to play golf. His interests outside of Academy life are water skiing, hunting, and fishing. Major has found his four years at the academy rewarding in sports and academics. His commanding personality and good humor have earned him many friends. 410 Class of 1 963 GEORGE CAMMACK HOWELL Kokomo, Indiana Having attended Purdue University for three years, George decided to come to the Naval Academy and leave his home state of Indiana. Being an enthusiastic person, George has worked very hard during his four years. We often found George out on the field with the junior varsity soccer team. His interest in soccer did not stop on the field, how- ever. Many a time George would be dissertating on soccer by making predictions and telling " sea stories " . Plebe year was a busy one for George for he managed to make the plebe gym team and maintain his academics besides pursuing soccer and professional interests. Although Spanish was not one of George ' s main fields of endeavor, most of his first two years of study were in this subject. Enjoying most of his courses, especially those in engineering, he maintained a good average during his stay. George is an extremely dedicated man and indeed will provide the Service with an enthusiastic officer and leader. DAVID NELSON HULL Lancaster, Pennsylvania Two years of rugged engineering study at Penn State preceded Dave ' s admission to the Naval Academy. Having been captain of his high school wrestling team, Dave continued wrestling at the Academy. Consistently plagued, however, by one thing after another, such as a broken arm third class year, he was sidelined. Always a lover of the outdoor and vigorous life, he was able to stand very near the top of his class in physical education. The " Log " was lucky enough to have the use of some of Dave ' s organizational talents on the soliciting branch of their staff. Besides these other commitments, he always seemed to find enough time with the books to remain a permanent fixture on the Super- intendent ' s List, while carrying an overload course in the science depart- ment. Dave ' s natural friendliness and willingness to help anyone in academic dilemmas have made him a very popular member of his class. RICHARD JAMES HYLAND Butte, Montana Hailing from Butte, Montana, Duke came to the Academy after a year at Montana School of Mines and a year at Montana State, where his major was automobiles, his one great love. With his good background, academics were no problem for Dick, that is after he had mastered the American language. Many hours were spent in building nameless little inventions which had no purpose. He could always be depended on to have correct answers to any math or science problems and was always willing to help anyone. Dick had other interests besides automo- biles. He was a strong member of the plebe and battalion fencing team, and during the spring he could be found on the Softball diamond. He was also famous for his June Week antics. He plans to fly after gradua- tion and would like to turn his inventive mind to aeronautical engineer- ing. Dick ' s winning personality and big smile will carry him forward in anything he should choose. Fourth Battalion 411 CHARLES GARRETT JORDAN Macon, Georgia Born in Jacksonville, Florida, and raised in Macon, Georgia, Charlie was educated under that lofty Southern dogma that the South actually did win the War-Between-the-States. Even with this dubious beginning in life, he somehow aspired to the heights of the Naval Acade- my. As a member of the plebe squash team and intramural basketball, tennis, and squash teams, gym gear was always a part of his diurnal uniforms. In this athletic capacity, he aided the Eighth Company basket- bailers to forty straight defeats. Better remembered among his classmates for dexterity on the guitar, he provided many enjoyable hours of both quiet and riotous sing-a-longs. A literature major, he appeared on the Superintendent ' s List several times. His mild manner and friendly smile will always make him welcome wherever he goes in the Fleet. JERRY WILLIAM JORDAN Evanston, Illinois In these past four years we all have come to know Jerry as an enthusiastic and sincere young man upon whom we can rely in time of need. Jerry arrived at the Naval Academy immediately after graduation from high school. Having had a good background in math, Jerry decided to major in math while at the Academy by taking advantage of the validation and overload programs. Being an industrious and often zealous student, Jerry attained a class standing of which he can be quite proud. In addition to being an exceptionally good student Jerry also found time to become a strong 440 man on the varsity swimming team, a member of two Brigade championship water polo teams, and a dependable member of the Lucky Bag staff. Jerry ' s analytical mind, strong character, and un- questioned devotion to duty will be a great asset to both himself and his country. RICHARD EDWARD KANE, JR. Des Moines, Iowa A midwesterner, Dick had never seen the ocean before he arrived here at the Academy to seek his career on it. He came straight from high school in Iowa, having spent all his life there and in Nebraska. The battle with academics began early plebe year for Dick, and continued throughout the four years, but he was the final winner, as a proud smile and a diploma attest. Dick, an avid sailor, sailed nearly every fall and spring aboard either dinghies or the schooner Freedom. Other interests included the Newman Club, Reef Points staff, and intramural sports during sailing off-seasons. A quiet fellow, Dick would tell you that his main interests over the last four years were the girl back home and pro- fessional subjects, both of which figure in his future. He plans on wearing the Navy Blue and Gold for a long while and perhaps the wings of a Naval Aviator, too. A welcome addition to the Fleet! 412 Class of 1 963 KEITH REEVES KER Washington, D.C. Keith was born in New York City, but he claims Washington, D.C, as his hometown. He came to the Academy after a year of college at the University of Maryland in Munich, Germany, where he spent his time enjoying the continental atmosphere of Europe. His favorite pas- times are hunting, fishing, photography, and figuring out how to get back to Europe. Battalion swimming and lacrosse were among the several intramural sports he played. Keith ' s easy-going manner and readiness to smile should be a big help to him in the fleet. With four generations of service tradition behind him, Keith plans to make the Service a career. RALPH DACE KIMBERLIN Bourbon, Missouri Ralph, a native of Missouri, came to u s after two years at Missouri School of Mines, where he majored in mechanical engineering. " Ralphie, " as his classmates are fond of calling him, combines good humor with a sincere attitude to make him one of the most popular men in the class. On the athletic fields, his aggressiveness and spirit made him one of the mainstays of the company teams. In academics, his major field was in aeronautical engineering. The Public Relations Committee occupied much of Ralph ' s free time. Occasionally he was to be found in the Model Club room building model airplanes. His special interests include flying, hunt- ing, and girls. Whatever service Ralph chooses, his cheerful good humor and friendliness will make him a welcome addition to any wardroom. MAX HOWARD KIRKPATRICK Knoxville, Tennessee Max is truly a man who has come from the hills down to the sea. His love of the Smoky Mountains of T ennessee is exceeded only by his feelings for the wind and salt spray. Raised in Knoxville, he attended one semester at the University of Tennessee before enlisting in the Navy. After spending time at the guided missile school at Dam Neck, Virginia, Max entered NAPS and then the Naval Academy. Fall and spring after- noons would find Max out on the bay sailing either yawls or dinghies. On Sunday mornings Max added his voice to the many which made up the Protestant Chapel Choir. When asked, he would probably say his favorite pastime was association with young ladies and his main problem was getting enough sleep, but, if those who knew him were asked, they would no doubt reverse his statement. Max plans to make a career of the Navy — to be more specific, in submarines. Fourth Battalion 413 DANIEL JOSEPH KOCZUR Buffalo, New York In four years at the Naval Academy, " Dangerous Dan " has proven to be not quite as dangerous as his nickname might imply. Yet Dan has had many memorable experiences. Plebe year found quiet Dan making himself scarce and keeping himself squared away. " " The busiest year of my life, " insists Dan. His career as an upperclassman was equally busy. He was on the Superintendent ' s List many times and took several elective courses. Dan was always a good student in German and took an active part in the German Club and its banquets. He has helped his company out on the cross country track, fieldball field, and in professional competitions at which he excelled. Spare time? What Dan has had of it he has spent at the movies, pursuing his hobby of electronics, and reading history or literature. In the future it is sure that Dan will definitely be an asset to the Service. CARL STANLEY KOLON Detroit, Michigan Carl received his appointment to the Naval Academy after one year at the University of Detroit, where he majored in engineering. Through his active interest in several extracurricular activities, Carl soon became a well-known and well-liked member of his class. The YP Squad- ron was one of his main pursuits, but even though it took a great deal of his time, Carl still managed to participate in the activities of the Radio Club. During the winters, the fieldball team always considered him an invaluable asset as their top goalie. At other times, Carl might be found struggling with a skinny assignment or catching a few minutes of pad time to the accompaniment of a few old Polish records. Definitely sold on Navy line, Carl ' s devotion to duty and ambition should carry him far in his Naval career. KARL MICHAEL KOZAK Mundys ' Corners, Pennsylvania " Mick " emerged from Mundys ' Corners, Pennsylvania, at the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains. He began his Academy life after an industrious year at the University of Pittsburgh, where he studied chemical engineering and was an active member of the Pershing Rifles Drill Team. When at home, " Mick " spends much time hunting, fishing, or improving his marksmanship with the bow. However, he finds the greatest pleasure in gliding over the waters of the Severn as a member of Navy ' s 150 pound crew team. With hopes of attending Nuclear Power School, " Mick " has enjoyed studies and intends to serve the Navy in research or development. 414 Class of 1 963 BRUCE BEATTY LENZ Fort Lauderdale, Florida Bruce came to the Severn ' s gilded shores after having excelled in high school football, track, and baseball and having been elected president of the student council of Skaneateles High School. After the usual back- breaking grind through plebe year, in which he amazed even himself by getting through, he found himself thoroughly absorbed in academics and proved his worth by maintaining a starring average. After a while an added sidelight began creeping into Bruce ' s pastime endeavors as some members of the opposite sex began to play little intrigues into our boy ' s life. His easy way and sly techniques had a certain spell on them. Never dismayed by any warning of the perils of the eternal triangle, Bruce managed to maintain his carefree attitude and single status throughout the Academy. Through his work as a member of the advertising staff of the " Log " , Bruce has added another facet to his background for the promis- ing future ahead. COLEN RICHARD LINDELL Brimfield, Massachusetts After a year and a half at the University of Massachusetts and an equal time in the Navy, Cole entered the Academy with a fleet appoint- ment. As a plebe, he took a liking to its grey walls and would not hesitate to express it. He divided his time between studies and sports with a star average and a slot on the wrestling squad to show for his efforts. With a major in nuclear physics and an eye toward the submarine service, Cole will be a welcome and able addition to the fleet. Fourth Battalion 415 LARRY EUGENE LINN Casey, Illinois Larry, whose home town is Casey, Illinois, came to the Academy after graduation from high school. Since then, he always managed to keep himself quite occupied. In addition to the rigors of Midshipman life, he concerned himself with the Drum and Bugle Corps, the Protestant Chapel Choir, the Concert Band, Reef Points, the Russian Club, and the Trident. He spent a busy but extremely profitable four years here in Annapolis. His favorite axiom; " You only get out of something what you put into it. " With an attitude such as that, Larry is certain to become a success in whatever part of the Fleet he decides to join upon graduation. THOMAS BRADFORD LOCKE Montclair, New Jersey In these four years, we have come to know Tom as an eager, good-humored worker. Tom came to the Academy from Montclair High School. His cosmopolitan background includes New England, the South, the Midwest, and Canada. Being quite a man in academics, Tom ' s grades were always outstanding. After being presented with the challenge of overload subjects, Tom headed for majors in both mathematics and French. In extracurricular activities, he has done a fine job as sports writer and the joke editor for the Splinter, as a Public Relations Com- mittee Sports reporter, and as publicity manager for the Chess Club. Tom has participated in varsity rifle, intramural gymnastics, softball, fencing, and cross country. Many weekends were enlivened for his room- mates by the companionship of friends who accompanied Tom ' s drags to the Academy Tom has the drive and the ability to match his brilliant future as a valuable officer. RONALD RALPH MACHENS West Alton, Missouri " Chooch, " quiet and sincere, came to the Academy after one year at the University of Missouri. From the Middle West, he began his association with Navy life during plebe year and became very well adapted to it. His grades were not the best, yet he always worked toward the Superintendent ' s List. He also lent his support to company and battalion sports over his four years at the Academy. Battalion handball and company fieldball gave him his greatest recognition. In his extra- curricular activities he supported the Newman Club and the Portuguese Club. " Chooch " always showed a sincere attitude and always was able to find the brighter side of any situation. With these traits he will cer- tainly be a benefit to the Naval Service. Having enjoyed second class summer, " Chooch " plans a career in Naval Aviation. 416 Class of 1 963 LARRY ROY MARSH Chicago, Illinois Larry fulfilled a life-long ambition by getting an appointment to the Naval Academy. In the field of academics, Larry maintained a high average in all subjects, gaining all the knowledge he could. He furthered this interest by taking additional electives in the field of science. In extracurricular activities Larry was a member of the Brigade Honor Committee and a prominent figure in the German Club. On Sun- day morning he taught Sunday School at the Severn River Chapel, helping the River Command with its religious activities. Sportswise, Larry was one of our varsity catchers during his Academy days. His other sports in- terests were basketball, football, and golf. Larry worked hard and played hard while he lived in Bancroft Hall, and he will continue to be a real asset to his class in the Service. WILLIAM LEE MARSH Long Beach, California Bill chose to follow in the footsteps of his father and make the Navy his career. Before coming to the Academy, he lived in Japan, Hawaii, and many places in the States, but he favors Long Beach, Cali- fornia, as his home. His stays in Hawaii and Japan created an avid interest in swimming and skindiving. At the Academy, he managed to stay near the sea by sailing on the ocean sailing team. During the other seasons, he was active in intramural fieldball and soccer. His interest in the Acade- my was shown by his spirit at sporting events and in Brigade activities. He managed to keep on the Superintendent ' s List most of the time even though he was active in other fields. Upon graduation. Bill hopes to go Navy Line and then to the Submarine Service as soon as possible. GLENN TRACY MARTINSEN West Los Angeles, California " Marty " was a prominent member of the " Log " staff, Ring and Crest Committee, company and battalion squash teams, and company bas- ketball team. He once had the pleasure of defeating his company officer in a squash game. A good artist, " Marty " rarely missed in a plebe year poster contest or in Army game decorations. However, he was at his best as a cartoon artist. " Marty " had a joke for every occasion. As a plebe, he once amused the upper class on his table with one of the best " happy hour " performances ever presented at the Naval Academy. All " Marty ' s " Academy days were not spent with a paint brush or clippers. He was also an excellent student, an avid reader, a top-notch bowler, and a good golfer. He especially enjoyed second class aviation summer, the football trips, and those quiet Saturday nights with a textbook, soda, and record player. A person with as many interests and friends as " Marty " cannot help but enjoy the Service and profit from his career in the Navy. Fourth Battalion 417 JOHN MARVIN McCLURE Seal Beach, California Jim ' s inherent cheerfulness made him a well-known classmate and friend. A talented and versatile athlete, Jim played football and baseball at Orange Coast Junior College in Costa Mesa, California, and entered the Academy determined to earn his place among Navy ' s top athletes. A crushed ertebrae in the latter part of plebe year crippled these hopes but failed to dampen Jim ' s spirit in the least. Always watchful for the interests of the other guy, Jim earned a place even better than that of a top athlete, a place in the minds and hearts of his classmates as a man who refused to be broken by ill-luck, as a man who was as hard-hitting and inspiring off the field as he would have been on it. Seal Beach, California, can be proud of this son. Jim is and will always be a credit to the Brigade and to the Navy. MICHAEL NASH McDERMOTT Omaha, Nebraska " The Nebraska Kid " is one of the friendliest and most well-liked members of the class. Mike ' s decision to become a Midshipman came after three years of Pre-Med at Creighton University. The academic change was a rough one, but Mike ' s drive and determination, coupled with his never failing good humor, brought him from the troubled to the calm waters. Mike ' s potential and outstanding ability in all fields of endeavor have made him a credit to the Brigade. These attributes will carry him far in any career that he should choose. Mike found time to add a great deal to the company and battalion sports teams and to the Brigade activities as a member of the Public Relations Committee, the Honor Committee, and as a Company Representative. It can truly be said of Mike that he is ready to help a friend at any time. JOHN EDWARD McDONALD Dover, New Hampshire Hailing from New England, " Jack " grew up near the Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Naval Shipyard. As a result, he has always been in- terested in the Navy. Jack came to the Academy after spending a year at Columbian Prep. While at the Academy, Jack participated in the Masqueraders and helped stage several Musical Club Shows. Naturally enough. Jack ' s special interests included girls, skiing, and hunting. As a member of the elective program. Jack ' s academic specialty was under- water acoustics. Perhaps Jack ' s most outstanding characteristic is his ability to remain cheerful in times of strife. Members of the company sport teams will always remember his aggressiveness and never-say-die attitude on the field. The future holds a bright promise for men of Jack ' s ability. We are certain that he will fulfill this promise by continually demon- strating his qualities of determination and dependability. 418 Class of 1 963 JAMES THOMAS McGRATH Boston, Massachusetts After graduation from Boston Technical High School in 1957, Jim attended Northeastern University for one year, where he studied chemical engineering. With his Boston accent, ready smile, and a store of scientific knowledge that enabled him to validate chemistry, he arrived at Bancroft Hall. During plebe year a first class physical culturist took it upon himself to develop the muscles of Jim ' s lanky limbs to Moose-like pro- portions. With this came the nickname " Moose, " a moose call, paper moose antlers, and hours of physical exercises. No doubt the workouts had some beneficial effects, because " Moose " has been a stalwart on a number of athletic teams, including the plebe summer batt. crew, intra- mural cross-country, track, basketball, and fieldball teams. Sports, reading and water skiing, help Jim to pass his free time. The " Moose ' s " friendly personality, coupled with thoughtfulness, sincerity and determination, have made him a very well-liked member of his class and will aid him in his service career. KENNETH ROBERT McGUIRE Brooklyn, New York Ken came to the Academy from Xavier High School in New York City with just the sense of humor needed to breeze through plebe year. His conversational ability during weekday study hours often resulted in intensive study during weekends. Science and engineering were always Ken ' s nemeses, but nevertheless, he concentrated on these in numerous overload courses. In athletics. Ken represented his battalion and com- pany with determination and ability on the football field and in the squash court. His extracurricular activities ranged from the Newman Club to the Foreign Relations Club and from the Russian Club to the Aeronautical Engineering Club. During academic year. Ken subordi- nated his social whims to scholastic endeavors, but liberty and leave found his latent interests revived. Wherever duty shall lead him, it is certain that his competitive spirit, unbounded optimism, overwhelming friendliness, and honest modesty will bring him success. RUSSEL EDMUND McKENNA, JR. Warwick, Rhode Island Russ ' choice of the Navy as a career was a natural one since he was raised on Narragansett Bay. A Navy ROTC scholarship to an Ivy League college was passed up by Russ as soon as his Congressman in- formed him that he had been appointed to the Naval Academy. His sailing prior to coming to the Academy gave him a head start, and he was active in dinghy sailing throughout his tenure. He also played a good game of squash and did some cross-country running, but some- how he preferred sleeping to running. He also liked to write letters, listen to music, drag now and then, and when he had to, submit to intensive study. His quiet ways and friendly personality won for him many friends both here and away. He always played the system rather casually but claimed to have a special guardian angel who altered the O.O.D. ' s course to other directions. After graduation Russ hopes to continue to make his life by and on the water with many years in the Navy. Fourth Battalion 419 FREDERICK ELINOOD MEYETT Baltimore, Maryland Fred came to the Academy as an experienced Submariner. Original- ly from Baltimore, Maryland, he brought with him his subtle humor that kept his roommates in good spirits. Fred, as an " ex-ham, " and music lover, spent most of his time at WRNV as a disc jockey and general adviser. He always had a way with the fairer sex, but many a weekend found him trying to outguess the Science Department or helping another classmate. As a Maryland boy, Fred ' s athletic interests tended toward tennis and lacrosse. His hard work and perseverance made his four years at the Academy highly successful. Yes, success will be his trademark wherever the future may lead. ANDREJS MODRIS MEZMALIS Junction City, Wisconsin Being originally from Riga, Latvia, and more recently from Junc- tion City, Wisconsin, Andy found it hard to make himself at home. He found it difficult to accustom himself to the strange language and customs which confronted him. With his conscientious and reserved at- titude and quiet personality he was well-liked by everyone. He never had a harsh word for anyone and was always ready to help in any way he could. Andy ' s four years were filled with many and varied ac- tivities, among them: varsity soccer, wrestling, and various other intra- mural sports. And, of course, there were the ever present academics which he doggedly pursued. Andy will long be remembered by his class- mates as a really great guy who was willing to do his all for anybody who was in need. JOEL DAVID MILLEN Nashville, Tennessee Joe, a staunch Southerner from Nashville, made his way to the Naval Academy after one year at The University of the South (Sewanee) and two years in the Navy. Part of Joe ' s two years in the Fleet were spent at NAPS so that he came to the Academy as a " Sophomore grad- uate. " The females who visited USNA throughout the past four years never got many opportunities to meet this handsome redhead since most of Joe ' s weekends were spent either studying or out on the Severn River at the working end of a big oar. Joe, known to many of his classmates for his consistently meticulous appearance and outspoken opinions, has been eagerly awaiting the historic day of graduation. The Navy is equally anxious to receive this excellent junior officer who is strictly Navy all the way. 420 Class of 1963 GEORGE MOREY MILLER, III Bethesda, Maryland Although he was an Army brat, George abandoned the ways of our sister service, gave up the college life of the University of California, and left his native state to come dwell on the shores of the Severn. He not only dwelt on Severn ' s shores, but also spent a great deal of time on the river itself as a member of the varsity crew team. Academically, George honored himself and could usually be found on the Superinten- dent ' s List. His time at crew practice and that with the studies, however, never precluded his giving a hand to any classmate in need of extra help. The many friends George made in his four years are certain that with all of his outstanding characteristics and friendly nature he is a fine addition to the Navy team and his only limit is the top. WILLIAM PATRICK MORAN Birmingham, Alabama After a short, but exciting semester at Washington and Lee, Pat enlisted in the Navy. He was taken from a course in Moroccan Arabic at Georgetown University when he received an appointment to the Naval Academy. Nine months at NAPS brought Pat to the Academy with a deep desire for a Naval career. During plebe year he participated on the plebe baseball team, exploiting his experience as a high school pitcher. His height of six feet, five inches made him a constant threat in intramural basketball, as well as an accurate spiker in volleyball. His weekends were filled with studies and bridge, a game at which he was particularly adept. Pat ' s obvious talent lay in the field of liberal arts, as evidenced by his high average in Russian and his constant enrollment in the advanced sections in the English Department. CLAYTON KAVANAUGH MORSE Portland, Oregon Clay, or " Sam Strain " as he is known to his company mates, claims Portland, Oregon, as his home, although he has moved around much of his life as an Air Force Junior. Before entering the Academy, Clay spent one " Glorious Year " (as he terms it) at the University of Oregon. His antics and countless love affairs kept his classmates in stitches for four years, and his outgoing personality served to make him a popular man in his class. He was quite a wrestler in high school and did much to strengthen the plebe wrestling squad. Athletics, however, were by no means his only attributes, for he maintained an academic average over 3.2 and will receive a dual major in math and nuclear engineering. Activity wise Clay was a WRNV representative, a member of the Brigade Activities Committee, and the French Club, and a choir member in his Church Party. All of these attributes combine to make Clay an unforgettable member of our class. Fourth Battalion 421 LYLE JERRY MULHOLLAND Hay den, Arizona Jerry came to the Academy by way of Highlands University in New Mexico. He is one of the youngest members of our happy group. After his junior year in high school he participated in the Ford Founda- tion ' s Early Admission Program and entered college. This indicated that Jerry has a great deal of mental ability, which he demonstrated by participating in the validation and elective program and maintaining a Superintendent ' s List average most of the time, with little effort. His academic interests were in Atomic and Nuclear Physics and Electrical Science. Jerry was a mainstay on the intramural sports teams, playing soccer, football, and squash. His extracurricular activities included the Public Relations Committee, the Newman Club, and dragging. Jerry was known as one of the most humorous men in the class. When the going got tough he always managed to come out with something funny to cheer us up. Jerry ' s ability and humor will keep him at the top in his field. DAVID ALBERT NELSON Gainesville, Florida Dave, better known as " Nellie " , came to the Naval Academy from Gainesville, Florida. He spent one year at the University of Florida where he was a member of the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps. During his stay at Navy he rowed crew as a plebe and was an avid intramural sports enthusiast, playing such sports as volleyball, fieldball, and football. Lack of free time prevented him from participating in all the extracurricular activities which would have benefited by his services. He did, however, work for the Naval Academy magazine, the " Log " , drawing cartoons and supplying ideas. One could always count on Dave when he needed cheering up. His sense of humor and friendly disposition will aid him tremendously as he pursues his career in the Navy. 422 Class of 1 963 ROBERT R. NEWELL Columbus, Ohio After declining a number of athletic scholarships in the Buckeye State, " Bo " elected to make his place in the sun via USNA. As a carry over from his high school activities, he proved to be a stalwart competitor in plebe track; but, due to a few untimely injuries, he later chose to haunt the intramural circle. As for Brigade activities. Bo was a member of the Antiphonal Choir and the Portuguese Club. While academic duties kept him fairly busy, he still found time to keep the fairer sex well pleased, as he was by no means a wallflower. A firm believer in fun and frolic, Bo proved to be one of the best-liked members of his class. His many friends could always count on his fine disposition dur- ing rough times, however. Bo also possessed a quiet determination to realize his ambitions. Since he has always been a keen competitor, Bo is surely a credit to the Naval Academy and will be the same in any mode of military duty that he encounters. JOHN LEROY NEWTON Caldwell, Idaho John, " Newt " to many, descended upon Annapolis from the U.S. Navy after two years with the fleet marines and one year at the Naval Academy Prep School. With the determination of an Idaho potato and no previous experience, he attained renown on the varsity lacrosse and soccer teams. John has found time to accept and faithfully fulfill the responsibilities of Class Secretary of ' 63. At the same time he was a member of the Class Honor Committee. Classmates know John for his high professional standards, competitiveness in athletics, and his outward friendliness to all. As John graduates, the Naval Academy ' s loss is certainly the Navy ' s gain. ROBERT GERRARD NOBBS Rego Park, New York Bob came to the Academy from the Naval Reserve. After spend- ing a year at Fordham University, he battled the rigors of plebe year and was successful. He was active in such activities as the French Club, Foreign Relations Club, and Catholic Choir. His years at the Academy went by quickly, but profitably, for he availed himself as much as possi- ble of the academic opportunities presented him. Yes, Bob was well- liked by all who knew him, and we are sure that the Fleet will be gaining a very capable officer in this young man. Fourth Battalion 423 THOMAS JOSEPH O ' BRIEN, JR. Watertown, Massachusetts " Obie " came to the Academy after two years at Northeastern University in Boston. Quiet and sincere, he applied himself to the curricu- lum. Although he had his biannual bouts with the Engineering Depart- ment, every final saw him come out on top, and he was no stranger to the Superintendent ' s List either. An athlete with diversified abilities, " Obie " found little difficulty playing on any intramural sport of his choice, but his favorites were company 150 ' s and battalion squash. On the extracurricular activity side of the ledger, he was a member of the French, Newman, and Chess Clubs. After graduation, whether on the sea or in the air, success is assured in whatever he decides upon. One thing is certain; this is one man who won ' t soon be forgotten by those who knew him. MICHAEL PAUL OBSITNIK Linden, New Jersey Coming to the Academy after a rigorous year at Rutger ' s, Mike began a career in the Navy which will undoubtedly carry him to the heights of success. Mike is that type of an individual; quiet, intelligent, well respected, and able to accomplish any task, as demonstrated by his outstanding performances in the classroom and on the athletic field. Having validated several of his plebe subjects, Mike easily won for him- self a major in the difficult field of Russian. Not satisfied with this alone, he endeavored to expand his learning by studying additional scientific courses. Good marks were not the sole attainments of Mike ' s stay here; making firm and loyal friendships will probably be what people best remember about Mike. The undersea world holds Mike ' s in- terest and the submarine service will soon be acquiring a truly outstand- ing officer. ALEXANDER JOHN PALENSCAR, III New York, New York Slow talking, fast walking " Doc " was the continental gentleman of the Nineteenth Company. Al was characterized by his slow deliberate speech, his compatibility, and his innate fear of being late to class. Born in New York City to an Air Force family, Al chose to wear the Navy uniform. Fine music, the Newman Club, Concert Band, and ocean sail- ing were among his many interests. Al can be credited for saying, " Any- one can be an ocean sailor, but only a select few can sail the Freedom. " After graduation, Al plans to make a long career of the Navy and, after retirement, to own " lots and lots of land. " 424 Class of 1 963 WILLIAM JOHN PAWLYK New York, New York " Da Lump, " like many others, arrived at the Naval Academy with many aspirations and dreams yet to be fulfilled. Hailing from Manhattan, Bill received much good natured ribbing about his accent. As far as vocal quality went, Willie had a fine voice which could deafen his roommates and often did. He wisely channeled this talent into the choir. Bill was in the Foreign Relations Club, Lucky Bag repre- sentative, and a hard driving water polo and football player. Despite a high average, studies took a minimum of time, with letters to his " O.A.O., " and the complete reading of the daily newspapers and professional magazines taking up much of his study periods. The wear- ing of the Submariner ' s Golden Dolphins is Bill ' s ambition in life. With his determination and phenomenal " luck, " Bill will be a fine officer and a valuable asset to the Navy. WILLIAM LYTTLETON PENN San Francisco, California Before coming to the Academy, Bill attended Cogswell Poly- technical Institute for one year. A diligent and successful student, he was also a go-getter at intramural sports and a star in the Masqueraders. Yes, Bill spent many long hours rehearsing for his acting roles. " Sdtra- stye " became Bill ' s familiar greeting once he had developed a taste for Russian. Encouraged by his language study, he pursued an understand- ing of that nation with the overload program of the E H G Department. A genial man with the girls, his wit and humor often helped make an entertaining and enjoyable afternoon at sports events or drag sailing. His outlook and reserve will aid his career as an officer. A good con- versationalist and a man with ideas, he added much to both his company and his class. CHAD ALLEN PENNINGTON Schulenburg, Texas Chad came to the Naval Academy from Schulenburg High School. An enthusiastic participant in sports, he devoted much time to becoming one of the best shot-putters on the plebe track team. After plebe year his talents were focused on the intramural sports program where he participated in battalion football, track, and company fieldball. Chad spent youngster cruise aboard the heavy cruiser Macn)i, learning more about both the Navy and East Coast liberty. During second class summer he was first a striper at TRAMID in Little Creek, Virginia, and then got his full share of Chinese Wingovers at Pensacola. After a quiet young- ster year, Chad, along with most of his classmates, learned the true meaning of the word " Study " when second class year academics com- menced. His affable personality and ready smile have won Chad many friends during his four years at the Academy. His readiness to encourage and help his classmates will carry him far in the future. Fourth Battalion 425 PETER RICHARD PERONI New York, New York Pete came to the Academy directly from Power Memorial High School in New York. Never one to excel in any one sport, he spread his efforts over a wide variety of intramural activities, Softball and foot- ball being his favorites. His academics, although not up to Superintendent ' s List standards, were never below average. On the extracurricular side he participated in the Newman and Russian Clubs. Other interests ran along the lines of " femmes " and sportcars. His activities on the weekend were seldom of an academic nature. Pete aspires to be a " jet jockey " and is sure to be a success in the field of Naval Aviation. ROBERT POLICH Chicago, Illinois A fine product of the Windy City, " Bobbo " brought his athletic and musical skills to the Naval Academy by way of IIT and Columbian Prep. Bob ' s athletic prowess was demonstrated during plebe summer boxing and plebe and varsity gymnastics. Smiling Bob is no slouch academically either, for his name was seen on the Superintendent ' s List more than once. Bob ' s Midwestern friendliness and love of a good time was shown many times on liberty, especially in Montreal and Bermuda on youngster cruise. Bob has the sky for a limit in all he does in the future, as he has his eye set on a career in Navy Air. LAWRENCE LEO POLONIS Detroit, Michigan " How many days until ' 63 ' s graduation? " was a question that Larry could always answer. After entering USNA from DeLaSalle High in Detroit, he earnestly began accurately counting the number of days until his graduation. During his four years he always hit the books with vigor and enthusiasm, thereby managing to stay in the top half of his class. Every fall you could find him on the volleyball courts, and in the spring Larry turned to the YP Squadron for professional activity. He was no stranger to the water; water skiing and skin diving were his two favorite hobbies. He completed his daily routine by listening to at least one hill- billy or polka recording. Larry occasionally turned his interests to the members of the gentler sex. His determination and will power will always bring him success in his future endeavors. 426 Class of 1 963 SIDNEY RANDOLPH POVEDANO San Jose, Costa Rica Sid came to the Naval Academy from Costa Rica, after making a long stopover in New Orleans and at Tulane University. His four years at the Academy were happily spent amid the wonders of accelerated academics, plebe crew, and various intramural sports. Sid ' s Latin charm has won him many life-long friends at the Academy, and it will benefit him in whatever field he chooses in later years. With his assets, Sid will certainly bring honor to himself and to his country. PETER DOUGLAS QUINTON La Canada, California Although now living in La Canada, California, Pete came originally from Montreal, Canada. He attended high school in Pasadena where he lettered in basketball and swimming. He also attended Columbian Prep School and Pasadena Junior College where he picked up enough credits to validate two courses at the Academy. He received his appointment through the Naval Reserve in which he played the " weekend warrior " role for close to three years. Sailing, squash, intramurals, and a running battle with the math department took up a good part of his time. In regard to extracurricular activities, Pete found time to participate in the Foreign Relations Club and the Newman Club. Furthermore, the " Dawn and Twilight Hiking Club " also saw Pete on occasion, especially after the Christmas Hop during youngster year. As for future plans, " P.D.Q. " has picked Navy Line as his choice of service. JAMES VINCENT RAGANO Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Little did the Pittsburgh Pirates realize how loyal their fans really are. " Rags " defied the immortal " Blackjack " by listening to the deciding game of the I960 World Series. Although the Pirates won, " Rags " lost his radio for thirty days! It has always been an inspiration to us, his classmates, to see the desire and effort put forth by " Rags " to excel, whether it be in difficult scientific studies or on the basketball or tennis courts. Not one of our classmates has driven himself harder; not one of our classmates has as much to show for it. " Rags " is talented in many, many ways, and though he is eager to derive the most from his own ability, he is even more eager to help the other man in any way he can. Many of us have him to thank for passing grades. We have " Rags " to thank for many good laughs, too. The Academy ' s loss will be the Naval Service ' s gain. Fourth Battalion 427 KENNETH RAYMOND RAMSEY Boise, Idaho Ken came to the Naval Academy from NAPS, having had two years prior service in the United States Marine Corps. Before enlisting in the Marines, Ken spent two years attending the University of Arizona. One of Ken ' s greatest assets has proved to be his size and strength. At the U. of A., Ken excelled in baseball and basketball, and later he was an outstanding basketball player for the Marines. Ken showed great promise as an outstanding football pla yer, but an unfortunate accident during practice ended his football career. Ken is probably best known for his very laconic personality. He is always serious and pursues any small task that he undertakes very assiduously. His meticulous nature will be a tremendous asset to both the Marine Corps and his country. JOHN RAYMOND REED Auburn, New York Jack, better known as " Jake " , after the tailor of fine Naval uni- forms, entered the Naval Academy directly from West High School in Auburn, New York. Jack adapted quickly to the routine of Academy life, being an active participant in various Brigade activities.

Jack was always ready to join in a Softball or football game. Jack maintained a high academic average, excelling in th e English, History, and Government Department courses and taking advantage of the elective program. Even with a heavy academic load, he was always among the first to take advantage of a good time. His ability to adapt to new situations and to learn quickly will make Jack a definite asset to the Serv ' ice and his commanding officer. THOMAS EDWARD REEMELIN Cincinnati, Ohio Having received two years of military training at Culver prior to his arrival on the Severn, Tom immediately adapted himself to the " system. " His good nature and quick smile, together with his athletic ability, soon earned him many friends and admirers. Blessed with an aptitude for math and the sciences, Tom forged ahead in these fields. Nevertheless, to the surprise of his close friends, he selected history as his major course of study. Sheer determination made this accomplish- ment possible. Never one to miss a party, Tom had the ab ility to liven up any gathering with his wit and musical talent. One varsity sport was not enough for the " Rems. " No, his aptitude for athletics was demonstrated in both the fall and spring, lightweight football and lacrosse being the sports of interest. When he receives his commission and heads for the Fleet, Tom won ' t have any problem making his mark. His shipmates are sure to find him as worthy of their respect and trust as he was of ours. 428 Class of 1963 KENNETH GEORGE REINHARDT, JR. DeWitt, New York Ken came to USNA from Jamesville-DeWitt High School, where he was a member of the football, wrestling, and track teams. He con- tinued his athletic endeavors at the Academy by participating in battalion football, company cross country, and Softball, in addition to an occasional dip in the swimming pool. Academics demanded a great deal of his time, but " Moose " accepted the challenge and maintained a good average. During plebe year one of his enjoyable experiences was entertaining people with his banjo playing — before reveille. Between flying at Pensacola and a trip to Hawaii, Second Class Summer was one of the high points of " " Moose ' s " four years by the Severn. With his subtle sense of humor and dynamic personality, he should go far in whatever he chooses for the future. JOHN JAMES RICHARD Bedford, Indiana Emerging from the limestone country of the Hoosier State, Jim entered Annapolis upon graduation from high school. Although engi- neering was not his most evident talent, he managed to beat the academic system. Between studies, his tenor voice found outlet in the Chapel Choir, the Glee Club, and in the company lounge. When not spending his afternoons sailing knockabouts, he was able to be found perfecting his favorite pastime — sleeping. He hopes to obtain the golden wings of Navy Air upon graduation. His methodical nature and determination to succeed will make Jim a valuable addition to the Navy. MAX VINCENT RICKETTS Hingham, Massachusetts Max inspired many of us with his friendship and dedication to the idea of doing every job well. A good student, Max devoted many hours to varsity track and cross-country, in addition to the French Club and the Political Economy Club. His able assistance was appreciated on the staffs of the Log and Reef Points. In addition, he took full advantage of the electives program in an effort to better his education. This self- less attitude of continual effort is indeed a most noteworthy attribute, and an essential one for a successful Naval officer. This factor, combined with his outstanding personal character, will undoubtedly pave the way to a rewarding Naval career for Max, in every way an officer and gentleman of the highest caliber. Fourth Battalion 429 DAVID RICHARD RILEY Portland, Oregon Dave traveled a long way from Portland, Oregon, to USNA, com- ing by way of Lewis and Clark College where he spent a carefree fresh- man year. At the Academy he knuckled down and rode out a stormy plebe year. He came through, tattered but grinning, and moved on to greater things. He taught at the Chapel Sunday School, where he dis- played a great attractiveness to the very young ladies in his classes. He developed a mean game of squash and many an afternoon found him swinging a racket in Macdonough Hall. Never one to be glum, the grinning Irishman from the far west was a very serious, dedicated young man and is bound to bring credit to himself and to the Academy in his future years in the Navy. CHARLES BRUCE ROBBINS Hot Springs, Arkansas Charlie, a " rebel from God ' s country " , came to the Academy straight from high school. His chief sports interests included any event in intramural track and sessions of Russian Roulette with various academic departments. His extracurricular activities consisted of increasing his already extensive knowledge of Naval and military history, following the exploits of the Arkansas Razorbacks, and trying to prove that " F " equals " MA " . When he manages to get back home to his beloved Hot Springs, Charlie likes to fish and water-ski. Charlie has been widely known for his easygoing personality and his ready smile. His high ideals and personal integrity will make him a welcome addition to the service. THOMAS JAMES ROBERTSON Bellingham, Washington This ardent champion of the " great Northwest " entered on a Congressional appointment by the Honorable Jack Westland. His keen, perceptive mind consistently kept him on the Superintendent ' s List and made him an outstanding student in the Department of English, History, and Government. A promising start in 150-pound crew was cut short by a recurring back injury. His other interests lay in a wide variety of outdoor activities, the most outstanding of which was golf. He played for three years on his high school squad and continued to play as frequently as time permitted during his years at the Academy. As well as being an active participant, Tom is also an enthusiastic follower of collegiate and professional sports. He could correctly be classified as an expert on records and statistics, not only in sports but in many other fields as well. 430 Class of 1963 DONALD TERRY ROGERS Rawlins, Wyoming Terry enthusiastically claims " Wonderful Wyoming " as his home. He spent one year there at the University of Wyoming before answering his true calling by coming to the Naval Academy. Terry, a hearty sports fan, participated in numerous intramural sports and has made a reputa- tion as a fine competitor. Always putting forth his utmost, Terry greatly bolstered the team effort. One of Terry ' s many contributions to the Academy has been a multitude of lost golf balls on USNA ' s course. Terry has a quiet confidence which demands the respect of all that know him. Together with his acute sense of humor and his warm personality he has won many friends while at the Academy. The Naval Service will gain a fine leader and an ambitious learner when Terry receives his commission. JOHN ALLEN RONEY West Chester, Pennsylvania John attended Columbian Prep School to prepare himself for the Academy. As plebe year progressed, " Pat, " as he was now called, found military life a rigorous one, academics and athletics occupying a major part of his day. His endeavors with the academic departments saw him strug- gling with engineering courses and above average in the Arts, a situation which continued throughout his career at the Academy. Youngster year brought John a varsity letter in baseball and a new experience, soccer, a sport in which he set his goals for another varsity " N " . When spare moments prevail you might find him in the library, since he is an avid student of history, philosophy, and religion. While at the Academy he was a member of the Newman, Political Economy, and Foreign Relations Clubs. His hobbies include guns, sports cars, and, of course, the fairer sex. John is anxiously looking forward to a career in Navy Air and, perhaps, in Naval Intelligence. RAYMOND HARPER ROSS, JR. Bellmore, New York Although the youngest member of his class, Ray matured into a real man in the last four years. Always the first man out with the latest joke, Ray kept the sun shining on the darkest day. Often with a nudge in the ribs, Ray would be prodding someone on to bigger things. As the runner-manager of the track team, one could never tell if Ray would be beating the clock or watching it. In keeping with his track talent, Ray took many hiking expeditions into the far reaches of Annapolis to commune with the natives. Ray ' s diary, " the Rossicky, " contains the most humorous and accurate written account of the record of the Class of 1963 to be found anywhere. When something needed fixing, one could always count on Ray for advice and service. In the future Ray is bound to be a successful Naval Officer with all obstacles being surmounted by his drive and enthusiasm. Fourth Battalion 431 PAUL SCHLEIFER Neiv York City, New York Paul arrived at USNA directly from high school in New York, filled with the sights and sounds of a big city and eager to explore a military career. Never finding academics much of a problem, he soon pushed his average over the coveted 3.4 where it remained throughout his stay at the Naval Academy. Much of his free time was taken by the Academy ' s Sailing Squadron; time spent on the yawls will form lasting memories. Paul, a math major at USNA, hopes for post graduate school and a career in nuclear submarines after graduation. His self-reliant nature, good humor and determination will stand him in good stead as an officer of the Navy. RONALD OSCAR SCHOW ALTER St. Louis, Missouri With a big dream in his heart and a great will to succeed, Ron came to Severn ' s shores. Combining a sparkling personality and the ability to lead, he soon became one of the most popular and outstanding mem- bers of his class. Ron ' s greatest pastime, when he wasn ' t helping class- mates with the books, was beating them on the tennis courts or at one of the pool tables in Smoke Hall. After graduation Ron plans to travel down to Pensacola where he will begin his career as a Naval Aviator. Eventually, Ron hopes to move from his place as a ' jet-jockey ' to a spot in the space program. The Naval Service will soon welcome a very dedicated officer, still carrying that big dream and the knowledge that his classmates and Brigade join in wishing him the best of luck and a smooth landing on the moon. 432 Class of 1963 r CORAL VANCE SCHUFELDT Omaha, Nebraska A tall six-foot-two, Vance, or " Moose " as his classmates fondly called him, was always easy to find. His engaging deep voice could be heard from the center of almost any crowd. Sunday mornings would find him lending his rich bass voice to the Antiphonal Choir. Afternoons, when he wasn ' t looking for a longer mattress on which to study, he could be found at Hubbard Hall, rowing lightweight crew, or at the fencing loft practicing with the epee. Vance ' s two years in the Navy before the Academy fully imbued him with a sense of thoroughness and order. He will be well remembered for his constant polishing and washing everything in sight. With a ready good nature for all, Vance managed the balance between leadership and comradeship with the ease of one well qualified for command. The Navy is gaining an officer of the highest caliber who will add much to his service and his profession. JON PAUL SCOTT Quincy, California The big " Bear " came to the Academy from Quincy, California, where the mountainous terrain instilled in him a rugged, vibrant, and cer- tainly friendly spirit. Endowed with a great love for the outdoors and the adventuresome life, Jon has a zest for living that encompasses every ac- tivity during the day — whether it is participation in a contact sport, which Jon enjoys, or learning Russian grammar, which Jon does not particularly enjoy. In either case, his determination is a constant source of inspiration to us his classmates. Visible proof of Jon ' s talent is easy to find for he is the Editor-in-Chief of this Lucky Bag. We, his classmates, will always be grateful to Jon for the unselfish dedication he has given to this publication. Those who had the privilege of working with him will attest to Jon ' s organizational ability, to his patient listening, and to his ever-present good humor. And, though beset with such a time-consuming task, Jon always had time to think of others and be of any service he could. His career will undoubtedly be one of continued good service. DONALD RALPH SHEAFFER Hummehtown, Pennsylvania Don came to the Naval Academy with one year of education at Hershey Junior College and a desire to learn more. Interest in academics, hard work, and little relaxation made the Superintendent ' s List a reality once in a while for Don. Although studies occupied most of his time, Don did find time for a physical education as well, participating on com- pany and battalion teams. Soccer, fieldball, lacrosse, and tennis were among his favorites. Don ' s biggest problem was trying to make people believe that a place called Hummelstown really existed. A desire to learn and a willingness to help others should be a good start for Don ' s road into the future. Fourth Battalion 433 ALLAN SHERMAN Linden, New Jersey Al, a product of the " Garden State, " spent a year in fraternity life at Rutgers University and two years in the Fleet before deciding to settle down at the Academy. He would have liked to have spent his four years in leisure, but varsity soccer, battalion squash, and company soft- ball occupied much of his time. Al, who played goalie, won ' t forget soccer because he finished each season with a cast on his arm. His leader- ship ability will make it a pleasure for anyone to serve under him. Wherever Al goes, we wish him luck. We know that he will be a success and will make many new friends along the way. RICHARD MICHAEL SMITH Parkersburg, West Virginia Hailing from the great state of West Virginia, and, after residing one year at Ohio State, as a Navy R.O.T.C, " Smyth " to his friends and " Mom " to his roommates, decided to forsake the terrors of fraternity life, sororities, and co-education. His congenial personality coupled with the desire to help and watch over " wives " and other various and sundry acquaintances in need, has won the red-head from Parkersburg a warm place in the hearts of many. Standing in the top third of his class, with not too much midnight oil burned, has shown him to be a pretty bright lad. Letter writing, sleeping, the concert band, and staying in shape stood high on his list of time killers. While at the Academy in both academics and athletics, he has shown a keen competitive spirit and a firm desire to win — qualities which will take him far in any walk of life, be what it may. JOHN STAFIRA Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania John was born and raised in a small Pa. town, near Pittsburgh. After graduating from Hurst High School in Mount Pleasant, he joined the enlisted service and attended the Naval Academy Preparatory School in Bainbridge, Maryland. When he passed his entrance examinations, John decided to see what officers are made of, and journeyed to Annapolis for a four year visit. His quiet personality carried him through plebe year in good stead, and it was soon time to make his way as an upper- classman. John ' s avid interest in sports of all kinds caused him to spend much tinpe reading the sports page of the daily paper, and his athletic ability lent much to the company squash, cross country, and softball teams. Due to his quiet manner, John was never a major contributor to conversation, but his sincere advice was much sought after and always taken seriously. Although youthful rosy cheeks were his chief physical characteristic, John ' s mature sense of fairness and good humor will be remembered most. 434 Class of 1 963 DAVID GEORGE STEPHAN Rushford, Minnesota Entrance into the Naval Academy climaxed a lifelong desire for Dave. When he said good-bye to his home town of Rushford, Minne- sota, and walked through the gates of the Naval Academy, as thousands before him had done, he realized the four years ahead would require the utmost in determination and ambition. He had these qualities, and he applied them fully. His four years weren ' t filled entirely with aca- demics, as he participated in many extracurricular activities. Among them were his active participation in the Brigade intramural sports program and his work as a key man with the 1963 Class Crest and Ring Com- mittee. Dave ' s determination to do everything right that is worth doing will certainly be an asset to his career. JAMES HARRY STEWART Williamsport, Pennsylvania Jim, more affectionately known as " Stu " , hails from Williams- port, Pennsylvania. After attending Columbian Prep School, Jim secured his appointment to the Naval Academy. During his four years by the Sev- ern, his prime interest lay in the sport of football. Leading the plebes to a six and two season as their quarterback, Jim displayed the outstanding sportsmanship and abilities of a great athlete. As a varsity back, he in- sjjired the team by his ball handling and confidence. He -also inspired his company teams in intramural competition, playing sueh sports as basketball, fieldball, and softball. Because of his affable personality and the fact that he sat on the training table, Jim escaped most of the rigors of plebe year. This did not detract from his leadership ability, however. Jim ' s keen sense of humor and determination will be of great aid to both himself and the Service. CHARLES WELBORN STONE Milton, Florida Welborn came to the Academy after two years at Jacksonville University. From the beginning of plebe year until his graduation, he was a credit to the Brigade and to his class. The first problem he en- countered was plebe Russian, but, as with every challenge, he mastered this and was an honor man in the course at the end of youngster year. Sports, bridge, and the Ring and Crest Committee took care of his free time. Well-known and well-liked throughout the Brigade, " Stonie " will do well in every task that he undertakes. Fourth Battalion 435 RALPH HENRY STOWELL Honolulu, Hawaii Being the son of a Captain in the Dental Corps, Ralph ' s home moved in true Navy form from Norfolk, Virginia, to Honolulu, Hawaii. Every Christmas and summer leave, when Ralph made the transition from sailor to beach boy, he became known in Waikiki as " the surfboard maniac. " Of course, the greater percentage of his time was spent here at USNA, but this did not contain his energy. As an active member of the business staff of the " Log " , many of Ralph ' s study hours were devoted to " Log " work. Still not being able to work off all his energy, Ralph ran company cross country, football, Softball, and battalion track. He always seemed to come through his pitfalls with the math, science, and engineering departments with a smile, one of his chief traits. ' With his never failing drive, Ralph ' s future looks very bright and successful. KEVIN FLETCHER SULLIVAN Nashua, New Hampshire Kevin Sullivan, known as " Sully, " hails from the second largest city in New Hampshire. He entered the Academy straight from high school where he was " Big Man On Campus. " He lettered in football which he continued at the battalion and company level at the Academy. He was a member of the Newman Club and served Mass frequently in his four years at the Academy. Sully had a warm smile and an unusual display of personality which captured many strong friendships. Sully is a dedicated man and plans to spend at least the first four years of his Naval Career on Destroyers. If he does well in the Fleet as he has at the Academy, the Navy can be proud of a fine officer. FREDERICK HUGH SUTHERLAND Lyons, Oregon A rough game of touch football, a fast game of basketball, or a challenging game of bridge all describe Fred. He is always ready for action of any kind, yet he is equally ready to study and learn as evidenced by the many elective courses which he has taken. Athletically, Fred has par- ticipated in everything from cross country to battalion football. Scholastic- ally he has been on the Superintendent ' s List and stands very high in his class. Well liked by his classmates and friendly to all, Fred has never been known to be at a loss for words or ideas. His hobbies have in- cluded golf, books, and music. Fred insists that Oregon is " the greatest " for scenery, weather, and girls. However, we feel that he has adapted well to the East Coast in four years, though his western loyalty remains fierce. Fred ' s longest memories of USNA will be of plebe year, with its " indefinite come-arounds " and " shower parties " . 436 Class of 1 963 PAUL WAYNE SUTTON Arlington, Virginia Paul, dubbed " Willie " by all of his classmates, graduated from Massanutten Military Academy prior to entering the Naval Academy. After the rigors of plebe year, " Willie " spent his little free time attempt- ing to catch up on his lost sleep. During his stay at the Academy, Paul was very active in intramural sports including football, crew, and soccer. He also contributed his art talents to the " Log " . Always ready with a joke, story, or impersonation, " Willie " succeeded in keeping those around him smiling. As a typical Midshipman, " Willie " enjoyed his liberty, but proved to be an avid student as well. With his diversified background and interests, Paul is sure to be a success and an asset to the service. GLENN TAKABAYASHI Lihue, Kauai, Hawaii " Tak " came to the Naval Academy from Hawaii by way of Oregon State University where he received a year of aeronautical engineering. With his likable, easy, happy go lucky nature, he was able to survive the perils of plebe year. On the serious side, " Tak " applied himself diligently in his studies, letting up only to concentrate his efforts in his bigger interest, sports. In athletics, he participated in lightweight foot- ball, lacrosse, and boxing. Usually quiet and soft-spoken, " Tak " always became the life of the party on the weekends and on football trips. His determination and affable nature should see him successfully through flight training and into the ranks of Naval Aviation. FREDERICK EUGENE TRANI Hyde Park, New York As a " Navy junior " Rick made his family proud when he was accepted to the Academy after graduating from the Navy ' s enlisted prep school at Bainbridge, Maryland. He will be remembered by his soccer teammates for his hustling style of ball playing and his affable nature and manner. Lightweight crew during his plebe year also won " Gino " many friends. On his summer leave he could be as easily found in some Paris Caveaux as in a quiet home town hideaway. An avid interest in things nautical, and a professional pride in a job well done, will prove valuable assets in Rick ' s Naval career. Fourth Battalion 437 HARLAN KENNETH ULLMAN Merrick, New York After sampling a year of collegiate life as a member of the DKE Fraternity at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Harlan began his career at the Academy. Having validated several of his plebe subjects, Harlan successfully won for himself a major in both mathematics and the social sciences. He also found time to serve as Assistant Editor of the Lucky Bag and participate in Brigade Boxing and Plebe Soccer. Known for his quick wit, keen sense of humor and friendliness, Harlan was always ready with a word of encouragement and a strong willingness to help others with their academic problems. The world of flight and space holds Harlan ' s interests and he hopes to choose a career in Naval Aviation. There is no doubt that with all the fine qualities Harlan possesses, the sky is no limit as to how far he will go in the future. GEORGE DENNIS MARC VAUGHAN Coos Bay, Oregon Struck by a desire to serve his country, " Denny " abandoned his origi- nal plan for an Oregon State diploma and headed east to continue his studies under the tutelage of Uncle Sam. His ever present smile and good humor carried him successfully through the trials of plebe year, winning the friendship of his classmates along the route. Having a flair for athletics, his participation in intramural sports was most avid and rewarding. Teams he played on always did well. Born with an aptitude for the sciences " Denny " had no trouble in these fields. English, history, and government, however, seem to have been his greatest burden these four years. Partial to a social life, " Denny " was always welcome at a party. His good humor and good will always seemed to blossom when the women arrived. Upon graduation, " Denny " will have no trouble in establishing a fine career. His classmates recognized his ability early and so will his future shipmates. KENNETH BARTLETT WAIDE, JR. Rochester, New York Bart has remained a solid, dedicated and inspiring midshipman since his arrival from Rochester, New York. Characteristic of Bart are his. friendly smile, willingness to help others, and deep motivation. With regard to extracurricular activities, his life in and out of the Academy has run from Z to A with an O in the middle. His aptitude for and love of music has been reflected, much to our pleasure, in his very active participation in the Concert Band and NA-10. Company and battalion sports and activities have frequently profited through his efforts. Bart has and always will continue to be a sincerely fine person, inspiring those about him with an active interest and fine spirit in all his endeavors. 438 Class of 1 963 RICHARD GLENN WAKEFIELD McConnellstown, Pennsylvania Rick came to the Naval Academy directly from Huningdon High School. Academics did not prove too difficult, except physics. Thus, Rick could spend more time being a boon to his classmates ' morale. He soon inherited the nickname of " Bull " from his first classman. " Bull " actively engaged in intramural sports such as football, cross-country, and Softball. He was the company representative for the chess club and an Antiphonal Choir member. Rick ' s hardest moments came between reveille and his first cigarette. Rick ' s choice of service seems to change with the seasons. Whatever his final choice, his leadership, knowledge, and per- sonality will assure his complete success. JOHN CHARLES WALL Washington, D.C. John graduated from St. John ' s High School in Washington where he was an active member in school activities and the school band in which he was a drummer. He moved on to Navy, where in addition to the basic curriculum, he overloaded in Italian dishes and good music. He was an active member in intramural sports, taking part in company cross country, soccer, fieldball, and Softball. Even though John was busy with these activities, he found that the best solution to academy life was by dragging every weekend of youngster year and the better part of second class year. Although J.C. put in his share of time with the books for the academics, he always included a steady diet of fun along with them and allotted as much time as possible commuting between USNA and Wash- ington. " J.C. " known for his quick smile and friendly manner should succeed in whatever he does. BRUCE COLLIN WEBB Bloomer, Wisconsin Bruce came to the Naval Academy from the dairy lands of north- ern Wisconsin, via Wisconsin State College, Superior. It didn ' t take too long for all his fellow classmates to see that they didn ' t come any better than Bruce. Always a true friend, he would never fail to extend a hardy greeting and a carefree smile. Plebe year, Bruce could be found kicking the soccer ball as a member of the plebe soccer team. But by youngster year, his interest seemed to be built around the YP Squadron, chow, mail call, and the old faithful rack. This didn ' t leave too much time for studies, but Bruce always managed to pass by relying on his inborn nature to do well. This ability, as well as his cheerful personality and his enduring pleasant disposition, will do much in making Bruce a success in whatever service he decides to enter. Fourth Battalion 439 ROY LEE WELCH Mansfield, Ohio After graduation from high school, Roy began his career in the Navy as an enlisted man. By appointment from the Secretary of the Navy, he entered the Naval Academy Prep School and went from there to the Naval Academy. Roy has characterized himself by hard study and dedication to the books. Although much of his time was spent in the seclusion of his room, away from the influence of the fairer sex, Roy was well known to his classmates for his humor and all around ability in Brigade activities. His interests in sports included cross country, soccer, football, Softball, and YP ' s, in which he made considerable contributions in the interest of his company. Roy ' s electronic ability proved a great help to the Juice Gang during the Youngster Hop and also a great help to the Brigade Activities Committee. Everyone expects great things of Roy. The outstanding marks he has attained in his science major tend only to augment these expectations. CARL TREAT WESTGARD Denver, Colorado " C.T. " came to the Naval Academy from the mountains of Colorado and the Colorado School of Mines. Tall and lanky, C.T. will always be remembered by his classmates for his pleasant, congenial personality and his light-hearted manner. His many friends could always count on him for a laugh or a good time, and, when it was needed, a cool and quick decision. While at the Naval Academy, C.T. ' s main interests were track, tennis, foreign languages, and an extra hour or two of sleep. He also participated in many company sports and earned a reputation as being an enthusiastic and hearty competitor. Looking forward to graduation and his commissioning, C.T. will be a welcome addition to the Service and will serve his country well. DONALD MORRISON WHITE San Diego, California Don, a Navy junior, came to the Academy with an appointment from the United States at large. His father ' s tour of duty at the Academy terminated during the same summer that Don ' s tour of duty began. Coach Potter had been working on Don ' s squash game for two years before Don stepped into the courts as a midshipman. This gave Don an edge which he had no trouble maintaining. Although he only had one girl at a time during his stay at the Academy, he did change girls regularly. He was able to maintain a high enough average to allow himself to overload in " Bull " without overly exerting himself. Any direction in which Don decides to plot his course after graduation is sure to provide smooth sailing. 440 Class of 1963 WYATT CLAUDE WHITWORTH, JR. Corpus Christ!, Texas Wyatt came to USNA via the US Marine Corps. Being no slouch when it came to studies, " Butch " took full advantage of the validation program, putting some of his former education to good use. He was good at athletics, as he proved by standout performances in both plebe summer boxing and battalion boxing. On any given fall afternoon, one could find him right in the middle of things on the Hospital Point gridiron. However good he may have been academically and athletically, he had two other attributes which far outshone his other achievements. The first of these was raising heck, a good example of which occurred when he flew a kite out of his third deck window during study hour one spring evening during youngster year. Butch was also noted as being a sponge when it came to beer consumption. His winning personality and endless sense of humor, plus his grim determination, will carry him through any situation he may encounter. JOHN BOWERS WORCESTER Big Rapids, Michigan John, hailing from " God ' s Country " in Big Rapids, Michigan, came to the Naval Academy after compiling quite a record in high school as a tennis player. At the Academy John continued to display his overall versatility in all phases of midshipman life. He was a member of the plebe tennis team and continued to swing a mighty racket leading his battalion teams to victory each year. During the winter, John tackled one of the toughest sports at the Academy as he played rough and tumble fieldball. Running the cross-country course is easy work for " J.B. " during that season, and his love for exercise labelled him as one of the few second classmen in the history of the Naval Academy to actually volunteer to run anywhere. He was also an active member of the Brigade Activities Committee. We are all sure with his potential and drive John ' s future will be spectacular for both him and the Navy. DOUGLAS HAROLD ZANZOT San Francisco, California Doug is a native of the Golden Gate County, San Francisco, but due to the fact that he is a Navy junior, he is equally able to call both coasts home. With the Navy as a background he found no great diffi- culty in adjusting to the ways of the Brigade, and in his four years he made many significant contributions to the Brigade. His musical abilities made him a stalwart of the Drum and Bugle Corps, and he was also a leading member of the Concert Band. Afternoons found him participat- ing in such various intramural sports as cross country and squash. An avid reader, he could often be found expanding his literary knowledge with a good book in hand. Doug ' s level head and good nature made him a friend to all he met, and all that know him are certain that he will be a great asset to the Navy. Fourth Battalion 441 s mmmm " , -Si ' Ks " V Jet;-,, k (• FIFTH - " ■r .- t - - v CLINTON DAVIS ALLEY Bluefield, West Virginia Upon his arrival on Severn shores, Clint, known throughout the Brigade as " The Square Bear, " quickly joined the staff of WRNV and his rock and roll music kept the Brigade jumping. Besides spending much of his time at WRNV, he was on the staff of the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference, a member of the Portuguese Club, and a member of the Reception Committee. He was also an active participant in the Brigade intramural sports program. In spite of his heavy extracurricular schedule, Clint found time to overload in Literature, make the Superintendent ' s List, and wear academic stars. Those who knew " The Square Bear " best will remember him for his quick laugh, his ready wit, and his Saturday night rock and roll blasts. He also has the distinction of being the only member of the class of ' 63 who wanted to get Ray Charles and Chuck Berry for the Ring Dance. We see a long prosperous career ahead for Clint. RICHARD GLENN ANDERSON Pasadena, California Dick entered the Academy fresh from the fraternity life of Pasadena City College in sunny California. It was natural that he was bound for many changes both weather-wise and otherwise. He had never experienced snow or other things unique to the Naval Academy. However, Dick was able to hurdle these obstacles with relatively little trouble and went on to become a standout during his plebe year as a member of the plebe tennis team and later as a member of the varsity team. Being extremely interested in extracurricular activities, he also served on the Reception Com- mittee and was a member of the Portuguese Club. Dick ' s qui et, friendly personality has become known throughout the Brigade, as well as to the fairer sex outside the Brigade. On any weekend it was possible to find Dick escorting a charming girl or girls. LAWRENCE IRA ASTOR Forest Hills, Queensborough, New York Larry was born and raised in Forest Hills, Queens, one of the five big boroughs of New York City. Coming to the shores of the Severn right from high school, his academic and athletic training was immediately put to good use. Larry has been consistently on the Superintendent ' s List, and he earned his stars his Youngster year. During outdoor track Plebe year, Larry pulled his thigh muscle badly and was out of action for over a year. Meanwhile, he actively engaged in company intramurals. His ability to make friends and his desire to succeed should insure him success in the years to come. Class of 1 963 JOHN PAUL AUCELLA Boston, Massachusetts Fresh from one of the high schools in Boston, John was soon known as the big, lovable Italian. Determined to do well at the Naval Academy, he spent much time on his studies, which resulted in success in his academic part of life. But all work and no play was not the life for John. One of the livelier sparks in the company, his constant energy and terrific sense of humor never failed to cheer those around him. Although a constant supporter of civilian line, John is a certain thirty year man for Uncle Sam. The military will eagerly accept men like John, who, besides being efficient officers, are indispensable for the morale of their men. HARRY FRANCIS BALL Spring Lake Heights, New Jersey After a half a year at Monmouth College and a year at NAPS, Harry came to the Academy with high hopes and a determined spirit. His personal smartness is an example of the high quality that can come to the Naval Academy from the fleet. Harry has not limited himself to any one sport. His many likes include knockabout sailing, basketball, and wrestling. He was a member of the Plebe Soccer Team, but his main interest remains with basketball. Whether playing for his company or watching a varsity game, he has been a staunch supporter of Navy basketball. Harry ' s quick wit and joking mood has helped him and his classmates through the long, serious weeks of academic studies. Very easy to get along with, he has won himself many friends here at the Academy. Looking to the future, Harry has his mind set on a career in Naval Aviation. Fifth Battalion 445 PETER LEWIS BARTH Poughkeepsie, New York Pete is a proud descendant of the Vikings. His love for Norway has never been extinguished, and her call took him there after his aviation summer. A man of many interests, Pete has had many great experiences in search of excitement. Speed has a spell on Pete, and he knows the thrills of car racing, as well as the fulfillment of a successful ski trip. Sports have always ranked first in Pete ' s daily program, and he has shown us his capabilities in football and track. Pete possesses a strong personality and a noticeable ability for leadership. These two characteristics have made the Marine Corps sound very appealing to him. We wouldn ' t be at all surprised to find Pete still looking for a new experience and striving hard for another goal a few years from now. His eagerness to reach that next marker ought to take him far. DENIS JOSEPH WILLIAM BELL Bronx, New York Hailing from the Bronx, July 1959 found this somewhat nautical New Yorker being sworn in at the Academy after spending one year at the New York State Maritime College. Even through hard rigors, Denny seemed to alleviate the gloom with occasional bursts of calculated nonsense. Beyond his redheaded hilarity however, there was an eager student, an active member, a good athlete, and even more, a better friend. During his first two years, Denny could be found in the front row of the Drum and Bugle Corps, drum in hand. Besides this, he was a member of the Newman Club, Spanish Club, and Brigade Activities Committee. Yet he still found time to devote to his outside interests; the major ones being the opposite sex, and listening to both modern jazz and light classical music. His future plans are assured of success due to his winning per- sonality coupled with an acute sense of values and unrelenting perseverance. FRANKLIN LEAVITT BENNETT Mesa, Arizona Even plebe year didn ' t change Frank ' s relaxed, easygoing ways, and he soon discovered that with a minimum effort he could control the upperdass more than they controlled him. As soon as he became a third classman, F. L. ' s true personality came out, and he showed himself to be a lover of all kinds of music and a specialist in the art of dancing. Frank spent most of his time engrossed in a novel, but somehow he constantly managed to have top grades. Two years of Spanish was not enough for him so he continued his studies by overloading. Most of his athletic abilities have been devoted to swimming and water polo. On weekends Frank could always be found with a different girl telling her why Arizona was better than any other state. Frank ' s quiet way of always getting the job done right is bound to make h im as big a success in the service as he has been here. 446 Class of 1 963 ROBERT LYNN BENNETT Seymour, Indiana Bob came to Annapolis from Shields High School in Seymour, Indiana. He has several loves at the Academy; water polo, nuclear physics, and his bed. No one in the history of the Naval Academy had ever spent more time sleeping off " the system " as did Bob; but in the pool with a water polo ball, he was a different man. Second class year. Bob discovered the wonders of Nuclear Physics and immediately started exploring the depths of that most difficult field. Bob ' s consistent high academic averages and varied interests such as the Naval Academy Christian Association and the Radio Club have made Bob a valuable asset to his class and the Academy. HENRI ANNE BERCKENBOSCH Berloz. (par Corswarem), Belgium Rik is a member of the sec ond generation of Belgian students sent to Annapolis. At the start, Rik ' s main trouble was understanding Naval Academy slang and trying to get away with British tinted English. Luckily, the upperclassmen had a quick way to help him get rid of these worries. This is probably why he usually says: " Plebe Year? I don ' t like to talk or think about it. " Through drive, work, and die help of classmates, he managed to get through the long years at the Naval Academy. He even added radio club activities, Spanish Club after-dinner speaking, and the Juice Gang to his activities. After Annapolis, he will probably spend another nine months in Pensacola on a helicopter training program, and upon return to Belgium, Rik will start his career in the Belgian Naval and Airborne Minesweeping Service. CECIL LLEWELLYN BLACKWELL, JR. Norfolk, Virginia " Cece, " a Navy junior, came to Navy from Norfolk ' s Granby High School where he was active in football, basketball, and baseball for three years. Undaunted by Plebe year, which seemed to slip by in easy fashion, " Cece " had no trouble with studies, maintaining a good class standing for four years. He always had a good sense of humor and was very popular with everyone. " Cece " has been known to make the most of his liberty, which was his favorite pastime. Continuing on in the sports field, he played varsity football and company basketball, occasionally venturing into fieldball. He leans towards the Marine Corps as his service choice. Fifth Battalion 447 KENNETH RICHARD BUELL Milwaukee, Wisconsin Ken came to us from Kankakee, Illinois, but has since changed his hometown to Milwaukee. Ken attended Purdue University, but after one year he decided to try the Navy, and entered boot camp at Great Lakes, Illinois. Upon completion of boot camp and electronics school at Great Lakes, he entered the Academy and joined the Twelfth Company. Throughout his tour here at the Academy, Ken has shown himself well on the academic scales, being a consistent member of the elite Superinten- dent ' s List. He also finds time for tennis, football, and various other battalion sports. He likewise has assisted on the Brigade Activities Com- mittee and is always willing to tutor those who don ' t find academics as lucid as he. An avid enthusiast of flying. Ken hopes to work aviation into his future career. JOHN PATRICK MICHAEL BURNS Philadelphia, Pennsyli ' ania Born in Philadelphia in October of 1941, " J. P. " made his first trip past South Philly when he came to these golden shores in ' 59. While at the Academy he played on the soccer, wrestling and crew teams besides being active in the Chess and Newman Clubs, and writing for the Trident and Splinter. He has always been a supporter of Mid Rac and a leader in the Elbow Bending Society. A confirmed non-dragger and stagliner, John describes his marriage plans for the future as being " very far distant. " John plans to spend his career in either Naval Aviation or Navy Line. Whichever he chooses, we wish our versatile classmate and friend the best of luck. CLETUS LeROY CAMPBELL Rossville, Georgia Entering USNA by way of NAPS, Clete could always be found in the rack or aboard a yawl. He learned to sail on the Severn, and it went into his blood. His unique abilities as a moonlight requisitioner made him a first rate procurement officer, and this gift w.U profit him and Fleet a great deal in years to come. The few weekends not spent in racing found Clete suavely inducing girls to enjoy life on the Severn. His ability to laugh off even the weightiest problem coupled with his native intelligence hold promise of a successful career. 448 Class of 1963 RICHARD BRESSINGHAM CHERRY Monterey, California Born in Oklahoma City, Dick has since lived in almost every sec- tion of the country. He now considers his home to be the rugged Pacific Coastline of the Big Sur. Undecided as to study liberal arts or engineering after graduation from high school, Dick came to the Naval Academy where he has endeavored to teach himself the " arts, " leaving engineering to the academic departments. He admits to having done better in his own course. A great deal of Dick ' s time at Navy has been devoted to varsity swimming. He is an All-American and takes great pride in being a member of the team which gave Yale its first defeat in the past sixteen years. JAMES HARVEY CZERWONKY Arlington, Virginia Hailing from Arlington, Va., Jim entered Annapolis via Sewanee Military Academy and Sullivan Prep. Consequently, when plebe year began, he found himself in a familiar atmosphere. During his four years here, " Wonk " found many activities demanding his time. Frequently seen on the sports field, Jim participated in soccer, tennis, and helped manage the varsity crew team. Always in contact with the fairer sex, this debonair fellow was a strong contender for the " most letters from the most girls " title. Jim ' s plans in the immediate future center around a commission, a sports car, and a few good times. With his sincere, friendly personality and many capabilities, Jim will surely find these and many other rewards waiting for him in his future life and career. RICHARD HENRY DANHOF Muskegon, Michigan Dick came to the sun-baked land of the Chesapeake from the cool shores of Lake Michigan immediately after graduating from high school. During Plebe Summer he kept busy playing in the Drum and Bugle Corps, Concert Band, and plebe tennis. When the Brigade came back, Dick found himself busier than he ever thought possible! Although taking everything in stride, he just couldn ' t seem to stand those uniform races between the Fifth and Sixth Wings, especially since he lived on the Fourth Deck. Drum and Bugle Corps and Concert Band notwithstanding, Dick has managed to play varsity tennis, squash, handball, run cross- country, and work on the " Juice Gang. " Not to be outdone in the field of academics, one can usually find Dick ' s name on the Superintendent ' s List. Fifth Battalion 449 JOHN SMITHERS DAVIS Linden, Virginia Born and raised in the Washington, D. C. area, Johnny found his way to the Naval Academy after serving aboard the VSS Redfish in our Submarine Force, followed by one year at the Naval Academy Preparatory School. Most of his attention at USNA has been focused on academics where he has overloaded in engineering, participated in the Advanced Science and Math Seminar, and still managed to maintain his fine class standing. At the same time Johnny was still finding plenty of time for his favorite hobby, dragging, and keeping a steady flow of mail between USNA and Chevy Chase. Away football games and leaves were the highlights of life for Johnny, a firm believer in " Wine, women, and song. " As for the future, Navy Line should find him a welcome addition and an excellent career officer. JAMES AUGUSTINE DENNIS Waltham, Massachusetts " Jake " Dennis, a long time resident of Waltham, Massachusetts, arrived at USNA after a short stay at Columbian Prep. As a Plebe, he fell quickly into both the academic and military routines. Always a sports enthusiast, " Jake " made his mark as a backfield specialist in addition to inspiring his company basketball team during the off-season. Personality- wise, " Jake " was also a standout with his friendly manner and quick wit making him well known to his classmates. Aside from sports, " Jake " enjoyed music and dating, in which his tastes were equally excellent. As a man with such a varied and outstanding background, plus a desire to do the best possible job in all of his enterprises, " Jake " is destined to be- come a fine Naval Officer and example to his fellow citizens. ERNEST MILLER DETRICK Minneapolis, Minnesota After graduating from high school in Minneapolis and attending a year of prep school, which also included a year in the Naval Reserve, Miller decided that the Navy was for him. With such a background Plebe year taught him nothing he did not already know, so he channeled his interests into athletics. His amazing resources of overabundant energy never ceased. Every year was filled with varsity cross-country and the one and two mile runs on the varsity track team. These feats kept Miller in a good supply of Navy " N " letters. With a " no sweat " attitude towards academics. Miller plans on a future in Navy Air. This idea astounds his classmates who wonder how he will ever be able to sit still in one spot for hours in the cramped confines of a cockpit. 450 Class of 1963 JOHN HENRY DETWEILER Ithaca, New York John was an old salt even before he came to the Academy, having attended Tabor Academy in New England, where he learned the art of sailing. His days here have been spent at Small Craft Facility, with a little time taken out for studying. Other than sailing, John ' s interests revolve around a blue-eyed blonde, and destroyers, with the possibility of subs in the future. Perhaps he will be best remembered by the Plebes and his roommates, as the orneriest man in the world before breakfast, and by his classmates as the person with the ready wit and great sense of humor. Undoubtedly, the Fleet will gain a most capable and conscientious line officer. PETER THOMAS DEUTERMANN Norfolk, Virginia As the " VonD. " goes down to the sea, Mother Bancroft loses one of her more evil proteges. The Log staff will long remember the monthly short stories and that infamous tale, " The Origin of the Reg Book. " A Navy junior, Pete follows two uncles, his father, and his older brother through USNA into the Fleet. An interest in foreign navies and naval history led to the completion of Pete ' s First Class Term Paper at the end of Youngster Year. His unique writing talent made him very welcome on the Log Feature Staff, and public speaking activities with the German Club and Forensic Activity rounded out an English major. He hopes to achieve further degrees in the fields of naval history and economics. The near future holds pitching decks and no sub pay aboard Destroyers. A highly entertaining shipmate, and a thorough man of letters, we foresee many cruises for this fellow as another Deutermann joins our Navy. GUILLERMO ALBERTO DEVOTO Lima, Peru Guillermo Alberto Devoto, better known by his classmates as Bill, was born in Lima, Peru, on March 2, 1940. Bill started his school life at the age of six, and after attending the " Leoncio Prado " Military School in Lima, he was appointed as a midshipman to the Naval Academy of Peru in March of 1958. He spent only one and a half years at the Peru- vian Naval Academy because by June of 1959 he had received a Presi- dential appointment to the U. S. Naval Academy. His favorite extra- curricular activities have always been the Foreign Languages and Chess Clubs. His sport is ocean sailing, but he has also been engaged in others such as soccer, cross-country, field ball and crew. Upon graduation Bill will be commissioned in the Peruvian Navy as an Ensign. His dream is to become a destroyerman. We wish him good luck in his career. Fifth Battalion 451 DRAKE ALLEN DONAHUE Wilmington, Illinois Drake, known also as " Grub " to close friends, learned early Plebe year that academics were no match for him, so he settled down to an intensive four-year course designed to improve his bridge game. Aside from bridge, he could usually be found in the blissful pursuit of sleep — if you could find him at all among his stacks of science fiction books. During the fall Drake was a standout on the company cross-country team, always being among the first to finish. He met with equal success in bad- minton during the spring. Drake ' s sense of humor and ability to do well in anything he puts his mind to will enable him to go a long way in the Fleet. JACOB EDGE, II Downingtown, Pennsylvania Jake hails from Downingtown where he attended Westown High School. While at Westown, he played football and soccer and was an outstanding swimmer. Jay found plebe year at the Academy a bit rocky, but once he caught on to it, he was one of the best. Since academics and gCK d marks came easily, he was able to put considerable time and effort into WRNV. Along with Ben Sottile, Jay was one of the " music lovers " who introduced Bascomb Lamaar Lunsford to the Brigade. Always willing to do his best. Jay was one of the stalwart defensive linemen for the Fifth Battalion football team during Plebe and Youngster years. As second class year rolled around, however, he was captured by the " call of the Sea " and took his wit and good humor to the Ocean Sailing Squadron. The " Wedge, " as his friends call him, will be remembered as a truly unselfish classmate: a man whom you can always count on for help. What- ever the future holds for him, he will certainly make it a success. BRADLEY DALE EICHORST South Bend, Indiana Brad forsook an NROTC scholarship to Notre Dame and entered the Naval Academy after graduation from high school. An avid follower of sports, Brad was equally as avid as a participant in football and baseball. Although frequently hampered by injuries, his enthusiasm for baseball spurred him on as a catcher. When not behind the plate, Brad lent his talents to the company fieldball team. Although not one to whom academics came easily. Brad has compiled a very respectable academic record. At the same time, he captured the fascination of anyone who happened to walk into his room while he was " talking over " the lesson assignment with his textbook. When liberty time came, " Ike " channeled his en- thusiasm into new endeavors. At any gathering, in any group, the con- genial Hoosier could be counted on to enliven the atmosphere. Through four years of rigorous routine " Ike " always seemed to find ample time to pursue the extra attractions of life, primarily girls, music, and good food. 452 Class of 1 963 JOSEPH MICHAEL FAVOR Montgomery, Alabama Mick entered USNA after a year and a half of previous college. His original interest was Engineering; however, he switched to Arts and Sciences. Mick ' s enthusiasm, coupled with his previous military experience, enabled him to adapt himself to life in the Academy very quickly. He carried this enthusiasm into his athletics and into the classroom. Mick ' s main athletic interest lay with the crew team. Spring and fall, Mick would put his boat through its paces as the coxswain and in the winter he would turn his athletic powers to the company 150 football team. Mick ' s interest in Arts and Sciences led him to a high standing in his class in Foreign Language, Math, and English. However, his main academic interest lay in Foreign Languages, principally German and French, which led him to take three years of each. Mick ' s adaptability, intelligence, and calmness mark him as an excellent leader in our armed forces. MARIO PETER FIORI Brooklyn, New York Originally from Frankfurt, Germany, Mario now calls Brooklyn his home. Coming to USNA from Brooklyn Technical High School he continued to excel in academics being a permanent member of the Super- intendent ' s List. He still found time to actively participate in many activities, among which were: the Ring and Crest Committee, the Newman Club, the German Club, and the Chess Club. His athletic endeavors ran the gamut from battalion crew to handball, but his most stellar perform- ances were in cross-country. With all these activities, Mario still found time for the fair sex and many a girl will remember the red-headed Mid with the friendly, innocent smile. The personal qualities he has exhibited here will certainly ensure him a successful Naval career. JOHN EDWARD FITZGERALD Madison, Wisconsin During the fall and spring, Fitz, as he is known by his friends, can usually be found over by Santee Basin working with the Dinghy team as a manager. Fitz came to U.S.N. A. from Madison where he attended West High School. He started managing the Plebe tennis team during the summer and when the season began in the spring he was out there with clipboard and pencil. Dinghy sailing took up much of his time during the fall and spring with lightweight football filling in the winter season. The Spanish Club finds an avid supporter and member in Fitz, and he can be counted on to do what he can to help anyone when the need arises. Fifth Battalion 453 WAYNE ALLEYNE FOGEL, II Kansas City, Missouri Wayne, who hails from Kansas City, Missouri, attended Westport High School in that city. Since his arrival at USNA, he has been an active participant in the intramural sports program. During the winter Wayne could be found almost any Saturday afternoon either in a squash or handball court, and the return of good weather found him frequenting the tennis courts. Wayne, who has a sharp, alert mind, is an excellent bridge and chess player. His ability at the chessboard made him a valuable asset to Navy ' s team. Academics never seemed to pose any problems for Wayne. Since second class summer he has had strong leanings towards Navy Air. His quiet, yet determined way should make him a success no matter what path he follows. ROBERT DOUGLAS FORSTER Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts Bob joined the class of ' 63 through Public Law 586. Although he hails from Greater Boston, he has somehow escaped acquiring the familiar accent of Beantown. Since Plebe summer Bob has been a first tenor in the USNA Chapel Choir. In addition to his choral duties, he found time to write several professional articles for the Trident Magazine during Plebe year. Bob has played battalion lacrosse every year since Plebe year when he was goalie on the Brigade championship team. He was a member of the Plebe gym team working the side horse. Bob was also manager of the 150 pound football team, and was the leading scorer on the company fieldball team his Youngster year. His classmates know Bob as a man who has something to add to every discussion. We feel sure that he will be a real asset to the service. JAMES EDWARD GILL North Branjord, Connecticut After winning many athletic and scholastic honors in high school, Ed entered the Academy determined to give his best. As a result of his willingness to work hard, Ed was on the Superintendent ' s List many times. Not satisfied with only being a " brain, " he won a first team end position on a great varsity football squad. A little smaller than most college ends, " Number 89 " had that extra toughness that enabled him to hit harder than those giants playing opposite him. However, he confined his meanness to the football field, and his many friends will remember him onily as a good-natured guy, always ready to help a buddy. Whenever he had some free time, Ed could be found enjoying one of his favorite pastimes — eating, sleeping, and dragging. Those in the fleet are sure to find him a good friend and a great officer. Class of 1 963 ARNOLD GLASSNER Baltimore, Maryland A personable, fun-loving individual, Sonny was a real asset to Navy ' s lacrosse team. During the spring of youngster year, he began representing that sport at the " N " Club. Later on, the Ring and Crest Committee and Log and Splinter activities found their way into his busy schedule. An unfailing sense of humor made him many friends. However, as everyone else, Sonny had his weakness — women. His only trouble throughout his stay at the Naval Academy was keeping his mind off the girls and parties long enough to do some studying. Even with these diversions he did admirably well, and everyone will remember Sonny. CHARLES EDWARD GOSNELL Wilmington, Delaware Charlie came to USNA through a Presidential appointment from Wilmington, Delaware. Plebe year he ran company cross-country and rowed with the Plebe crew team. Youngster year found him rowing crew again. He also enjoyed working with the Juice Gang. Although not academically inclined, " Goose " seldom missed dragging a lovely femme when the weekends came along. When the all-too-infrequent chances to desert the Academy yard for a weekend came along, his lost weekends at the beach left people wondering. We wish him good luck as he embarks upon a career in the Marine Corps. We know he ' ll be a welcome addition from ' 63 to the Corps. DAVID PAUL GREENEISEN Marysville, Ohio It was truly a type of D-Day as Dave came into the world on 6 June 1941. Living ever since in the town of MarysVille, Dave has managed to set his mark in many disassociated fields, from the halls of Marysville ' s public schools to the passageways of Bancroft Hall. His dexterity enabled him to participate in many sports and to also hold a position in the Chapel Choir, but his main activity has been in public debate and the forensic program here. His other activities, ranging from Boston to Jacksonville to Ohio State, have continually held the intense interest of his classmates, and he will always be a welcome addition to any party. Dave ' s unique repartee and industrious mind will no doubt be his greatest assets in realizing the success of future endeavors. Fifth Battalion 455 RICHARD ORA GREGORY Seymour, Indiana While a youngster in Indiana, his earnest efforts in school earned him early recognition and a scholarship to Purdue University where the NROTC generated his interest in the Naval Academy. A Congressional appointment the following year initiated his career at USNA. Astute in academics, his name was often found on the Superintendent ' s List while elective courses provided a solid, well-rounded education. With his natural good-naturedness and friendly personality, he gained friends easily, espe- cially among the fairer sex. In addition to being a staunch member of the Spanish Club and the Choir, he was active in lightweight crew and com- pany sports. Youngster Cruise aboard the Intrepid and the flights at Pensacola developed his interest in Navy Air. Natural ability and a desire to excel will continue to make him an outstanding officer. ALFRED LELAND GRIGGS Northampton, Massachusetts AI spent four years at Phillips Andover Academy and one year in the Navy before coming to the Naval Academy. From the first, Al has shown fine ability in athletics and leadership. He has been Vice-President of the Class, and an active member of the Class Honor Committees. Besides being a member of both Plebe and varsity Lacrosse teams, Al has been a standout in company fieldball. Of Al ' s free time, much was spent in Brigade organizations: WRNV, the German Club, and the Chess Club. AI, along with eleven other Midshipmen, spent his Third Class summer cruise with the Coast Guard Academy Cadets on board the Eagle in Europe. A fine student, athlete, and companion, Al will always be remembered and will certainly gain success in his future efforts. HAROLD ROLLAND GROVER Joplin, Missouri Ron started his Navy life in San Diego, California, at boot camp and soon advanced to the Naval Academy Prep School at Bainbridge, Maryland. At NAPS Ron developed many characteristics which he brought with him to the Academy. His interest in music was proven in his active participation in the chapel choir during his stay. Friendly, thoughtful, patient, and considerate are adjectives well suited to Ron ' s personality. He always had a cheery " hello " and a smile for everyone that he met. Ron was not a varsity athlete, but he always managed to give his wholehearted support to company and battalion sports. When Ron leaves the Academy upon graduation, all will be able to say with pride that he is one of its graduates. 456 Class of 1963 KENNETH LAWRENCE GROVER Wrangell, Alaska Coming directly from Wrangell High School, where he graduated Salutatorian of his class, Ken entered the Naval Academy and was quick to prove himself a hard worker, an able athlete, and one who will always get the job done. Making an excellent showing in squash, boxing, basket- ball, cross-country, and soccer, he further distinguishes himself by his perseverance, friendliness, consideration, and unquenchable desire to excel. Having lived his life in the " Land of the Northern Lights, " his travels across the U. S. and in Europe during the summers have convinced many a cute young lass that not all " Northern Lights " are cold, and maintaining a girl in every port keeps him on his social toes, showing still another aspect of his vigorous and adventurous outlook in living a full, respectable, enjoyable, and rewarding life. WILLIAM DAVID GUNN Great Bend. Kansas Coming from the rolling plains of Kansas, " Gunner " found little difficulty on the tossing seas of Naval Academy life. Amiable, good natured, and always ready for a laugh he was everyone ' s friend. He was soon the terror of the company sports teams whether he was kicking a soccer ball, catching a long pass, or wielding a softball bat. He found his weekends and his books seemed to go together and that only an occasional movie or girl, could deter his desire to learn. It was during the summer that he was at his best when he could show you a lot of laughs and things to do. His true love was Kansas, however, and if you could believe him, there wasn ' t a better place to live. Bill is sure to do well in future years because of his likeable nature and strong determination to conquer difficult objectives. WILLIAM CARL GUSTAFSON Phoenix, Arizona One of the company ' s perennial file-closers, Gus can always be found at the back of any formation and the head of any pay line. An avid squash player and stalwart on the company cross-country teams, his favorite hobby is cutting Zees on the horizontal sawmill. Consistent with his artistic temperament, he maintains that he is a lover at heart, and vigor- ously insists that the girls have just never given him a chance to prove it. Gus came to the Academy from NAPS and has since gained a profound appreciation for the " better way of life. " He says that any system is bear- able if you can find a way to get around it. Fifth Battalion 457 TOM FORREST HALL Bamsdall, Oklahoma Tom came to the Academy from Oklahoma State, where he spent one year. Born in Barnsdall, he developed the athletic qualities that, added to his outstanding scholastic aptitude, made him well known among us. Flying is Tom ' s golden dream, and his keen interest in aircraft made his second class aviation summer the most enjoyable experience the Academy could offer him. Academics always had high priority in Tom ' s schedule, but he never failed to find some extra time for a sporting contest — football and basketball being his favorites. This, however, never kept Tom from enjoying a long sleep. He always defended himself with the powerful argu- ment that he was " The tiredest man in the world. " A bright future lies ahead of Tom, whose fitness all around is proverbial. His even temper and congeniality will keep a circle of friends that will always welcome his arrival. WILLIAM LUND HANSEN Falls Church, Virginia " Always on the go " best describes Bill and the active life he leads. Being a Navy Junior was the only primer he needed on I ' Tovember 14, 1941, in Hawaii to start him on a life which has led him thr0w.gh many countries and into many friendships. " Hans from Norway " also has an interest in Guam, France, and " Good Ole ' Virginny, " which he calls home. Bill ' s brother Gil (Class of ' 60) started him on the right foot at the Academy and made certain that his interests were diversified: the Chapel Choir, the 150 crew team, the Foreign Relations Club, and company football. With a smile for the boys and a line for the girls, Bill manages to find his way into the most fantastic situations imaginable; all of which seem to turn out for the best. After a long and eventful career in the Navy, Bill will be able to look with pride on his days at the Naval Academy as a Midshipman. JOHN MILTON HARVEY Roanoke, Virginia " Harv " came to USNA from good old Virginia still fighting the Civil War. As early as Plebe summer, his Yankee classmates found it h rd to understand his southern drawl, but his slow manner of speaking soon won many friends. Having had one semester at Roanoke College, he had little trouble finding his stars Plebe year, and he has been looking for them ever since. Being fond of good music, he soon found his place in the Antiphonal Choir. On any given afternoon he could be found participating in intramural s ports or sleeping. Naval Aviation is his favorite and he looks forward to a long career in Anti-Submarine War- fare. 458 Class of 1963 DRAKE CLEVELAND HAWKINS Altadena, California Forsaking his surf board on the waves of the mighty Pacific, Drake came to Annapolis to learn more about the ways of the sea. Applying the same energy he had previously expended on sunning and surfing to the more mundane tasks of Academy life, he found his efforts crowned with success. Although he was striving toward an important goal, " Hawk " never lost his keen sense of humor and ability to enjoy life. An avid sports fan, he busied himself with battalion soccer and company football. His outside interests found vent in his contributions to the Aeronautics and Foreign Relations Clubs. His sharp intelligence and thoroughness assure the completion of the most difficult tasks, and will ensure his future suc- cess. WILLIAM MURRAY HENGHOLD Miami, Florida Bill came to U.S.N. A. from sunny Miami, complete with outstand- ing records of academic ability and athletic prowess. Although he de- voted an unusual amount of time to " relaxation, " he has maintained Superintendent ' s List grades since his arrival. Moreover, he has gained a billet on every sport squad he has tried and was an outstanding member of each. His willing laugh and ready smile have gained him lifetime friendships. This outstanding ability combined with high personal standards are more than enough to ensure him his goals. WILLIAM ALBERT HOEFLING, III Wilmington, Delaware Bill came to the Academy after one year at Columbian Preparatory School, where he studied to pass the entrance examinations for admission. He had several rounds with the Electrical Engineering Department during Plebe year, but finally came out on top. On his Youngster cruise iie was aboard the US.S. Independence where he acquired a yearning for Naval Aviation. Youngster year was a pleasure compared with Plebe year, and then the Electrical Engineering Department struck again. However, with the aid of intensive extra-instruction. Bill managed to survive the hardships of academic study at the Academy. While at the Academy, Bill engaged in various extracurricular activities. He played soccer and squash and ran cross-country for the intramural teams of the Brigade. He was a member of the Newman and French Clubs. Although he had other interests in the fields of music, outdoor recreation, and automobiles, he never really could exercise them in place of his studies. Fifth Battalion 459 JOHN McCOY HOOD, JR. Mason City, Iowa Coming to us from Mason City, Iowa, Jack brought many of the fine qualities he acquired at home. He was an outstanding athlete in high school and junior college and put his talent in sports to good use at the Academy. In all that he undertook Jack always worked to became the best, whether it be studies, sports, or brigade activities. One of the many things on his agenda was the Portuguese Club, of which he was a valuable member. Jack commanded a great deal of respect and was always available when a good friend was needed, and when it was time for fun, he was again, tops. Naval Academy food seemed to agree with him because some of his happiest hours were spent perfecting his skill with a knife and fork. Following graduation, he hopes to go into Navy Air. LARRY MICHAEL HOPKINS Ironwood, Michigan " Hoppy " came to the Academy straight out of high school from the cold North-country, wondering how he could get in any skiing in his new surroundings. Never one to sit back, he soon traded skiing for singing in the Protestant Chapel Choir, which he found much to his liking. While at the Academy, Larry was a member of the varsity rifle team and the intramural football and track teams. Good-natured and easygoing, he was always easy to get along with. He kept his grades above average and was always fooling around with an unreliable Hi-Fi, claiming that his hobby was electronics. We wish him luck in his career, and know that he will do well in whatever he undertakes. GARY RONALD HOSEY University Park, Maryland Gary, one of the little people of the Naval Academy, wandered into the yard after serving a year in the enlisted Navy. He can usually be found either with his nose in a book or outside making marathon runs around Farragut Field. Gary has also been an active participant in intra- mural tennis, football, and wrestling. In his leisure time he likes to swim, hike, and bowl. Gary has put his great interest in sports to work by serving as a member of the Public Relations Club. An appropriate word for describing Gary would be " stick-to-itiveness. " What he lacks in size and natural abilities, he is usually able to make up for with hard work and application. Gary ' s loudest boast is that he will always be one weekend ahead of his classmates. Having as his ultimate objective that commission and a ticket to postgraduate school, Gary will no doubt be a valuable asset to the branch of service he chooses. 460 Class of 1 963 ROBERT TURNER HUDSPETH Lubbock, Texas Bob comes to us from Monterey High School in Lubbock. While there, he was a better than average athlete and played on a championship team. He received letters for football and track. The sudden change from civilian life to the military seemed to have no effect on Bob, and his quick adjustment to the Navy seems indicative of a well-rounded career. Al- though an agricultural major in high school, he has, with little difficulty, taken to engineering to the extent of being on the Superintendent ' s List and wearing stars. Although his sports at the Naval Academy have been limited due to a recurring shoulder injury, he has still participated in boxing, wrestling and lacrosse. Well known to his classmates for his quick wit and subtle humor. Bob often comes through with the unexpected. Without a doubt, Bob is a credit to the Brigade and his country. He will do outstandingly in any future endeavor he should care to undertake. JAMES EDWARD HUTCHESON, JR. Tallahassee. Florida Leaving behind the sunny swamplands of Georgia, " Hutch " set out upon a tour of duty in the Navy which eventually brought him to the Naval Academy, via the Naval Preparatory School at Bainbridge, Mary- land. " Hutch ' s " previous service experience, coupled with his seemingly endless amount of determination and will to win, enabled him to adjust to the rigors of this entirely different way of life very rapidly, and he was soon taking everything in stride. It was this same will to win which enabled him to advance from a man who had never competed in a gymnastics meet in his life to a varsity letter and a victory over Army in his youngster year. " Hutch ' s " tremendous love of fun and his desire to help all those around him has made him a wonderful friend of us all. This great guy ' s graduation will be a boon to whatever phase of the Armed Forces he chooses to make his career. GEORGE RICHARD HUTTER Chicago, Illinois George came to the Academy as one of the elder members of the class. Having spent one and one-half years at Penn State University and the same amount of time in the enlisted Navy, including the Naval Academy Preparatory School, George had a lot of experience which he put to good use. One could always count on George to be out helping the company or the battalion sports squads after classes. When not out for his sport or studying, he was counted on for support by the Newman Club. Even with his full schedule, George ' s face managed to show up in the drag houses on many weekends. He also always seemed to keep a few days ahead on his sleep, especially during the cold winters. Fifth Battalion 461 RONALD ARNETT JARVIS Clarksburg, West Virginia After spending a year at West Virginia University, Ron received his appointment to the Academy. He maintained an above average stand- ard in his academics throughout his undergraduate years. His scholastic interests were directed toward science and mathematics, but almost all of his free time was centered around sports. His first love was basketball, and he worked himself up to a position on the varsity. He also was an asset to his company in various intramural sports. Ron was active in extra- curricular activities, dividing his time between the Public Relations Com- mittee and his duties as company Log and Splinter representative. Ron is characterized by his friendly and easygoing personality which has won him many friends at the Academy, and which will be an invaluable aid to him in his future life in the service. JOEL BATES JAUDON Alexandria, Virginia Like most Navy juniors, Joel ' s thoughts turned towards the Navy at an early age. Following in the footsteps of his father and brother, he came to the Academy right out of high school, ready to tackle college academics. Joel was very easygoing and friendly and was liked by every- one who knew him. He was a great asset to his company in intramural sports after having been outstanding in high school football and soccer. No matter what branch of the service Joel may choose, he will be a fine officer and a credit to our country and the Academy. HAROLD CALL JOHNSTON Honolulu, Hawaii Harry came to USNA while his home, Hawaii, was in the process of becoming the Fiftieth State. No stranger to the military (six years at Kamehameha School for Boys, a U. S. military institute in Honolulu), he had little trouble adjusting to Navy ways. Always a standout in company sports such as soccer and fieldball, he will be remembered as a real competitor on and off the playing field. Harry ' s inability to get overly disturbed about any problem will be a great asset to his career and his future. With Quantico ahead of him after graduation, the Corps will find him as fine an officer as we found him a friend. All who have known him these past four years truly wish him the best of luck. 462 Class of 1 963 DENNIS RICHARD JONES Altadena, California One of our more distinguished denizens from the sunny state of California, Denny hails from Altadena, which is a suburb of the Rose Bowl. With his piercing interest in guns and Naval History, Denny was right at home with Navy ' s Riflemen as well as with a roomful of plebes who were well on their way towards making Naval History one of their main interests also. Denny has been collecting guns for quite some time and is familiar with a great host of hand weapons and military rifles. So are his plebes. Excepting a few brushes with the Prussian element in the Foreign Language Department, Denny was able to chalk up and maintain an excellent academic record with a major in Metallurgy. All hands will be pleased indeed to have Denny sailing in company with us in the many cruises to come. A pleasant shipmate and fine professional member of our class, he is always ready to lend a helping hand. RICHARD CARL JONES, JR. Greenshurg, Pennsylvania Dick was taken aback somewhat by plebe year, but he soon adjusted to the rigors of Academy life. Being a Pennsylvanian, his natural interest in athletics found several outlets at Annapolis. As the seasons came and went, Dick played plebe football, plebe basketball, and plebe crew. He just naturally graduated to the varsity in all these sports with the coming of Youngster year. To complete Dick ' s extracurricular life, he participated in the Brigade Reception Committee, the Italian Club, and the Chapel Choir. His weekends were quite often spent dragging, and any kind of trip to Philadelphia was always welcome. Upon graduation, Dick has hopes of donning the " Marine Green. " FREDERICK HENRY KAISER, JR. Palatine, Illinois Fred entered the Naval Academy upon graduation from Township High School in Palatine. He soon found the military life much to his liking. His good nature won him many friends among his fellow Midship- men. During his free time, Fred could be found sketching in chalks or practicing his other hobby of body building. Having enjoyed a successful high school career in wrestling, Fred participated in both plebe and varsity wrestling. In the off season he went out for dinghy sailing or supported the company intramural sports. On weekends Fred frequently occupied himself with members of the opposite sex. Fred is a dedicated military man and he will find success in whatever service he selects. Fifth Battalion 463 JAMES EDWARD KILLIAN Arlington, Virginia Jim was determined to make his mark at the Academy and con- stantly kept his eye upon the goal he had set for himself many years ago, becoming a competent naval officer. A better than average athlete, he personified the equation " F — MA, " because, although his stature was small, his boundless energy and acceleration created a force which enabled him to compete outstandingly on the varsity fencing team. This energy wasn ' t confined to athletics. He had time, and enthusiasm, for everybody and everything — with the possible exception of the English Department. Count- ing on boyish charm and a multitude of freckles, Jim was something of a phenomenon with the girls, and many a weekend found Jimmy escorting one of a dazzling aggregate of young lovelies — in keeping with his phi- losophy of " Share the Wealth. " Fortune cannot help but award to Jim Killian the success for which he has labored so hard and richly deserves. RONALD WARREN KILMER Martinsburg. West Virginia Leaving the mountainous wilds of West Virginia, especially the little town of Martinsburg, behind him, Ron arrived upon the happy shores of the Severn one fine July morning eager to assume the responsibil- ities of a Midshipman. With his well-rounded personality and broad sense of humor he readily adjusted to the routine and discipline of the Academy system and was soon taking everything smoothly in his stride. Academic- ally, socially, and athletically adept, Ron will always be remembered for his willingness to aid his classmates in their studies, his natural wit and love of fun, and his thorough devotion to various and sundry battalion and company sports. Just as Martinsburg ' s loss was the Academy ' s gain, so will Ron ' s graduation be a benefit to Naval Aviation, his professional choice. Heartfelt best wishes for the future to a fine man, a true class- mate, and a great friend of us all. RICHARD JAMES KINNEAR San Bernardino, California Dick came to the Naval Academy from Golden California, where he had previous schooling at San Bernardino Junior College and at the University of California at Riverside. Being a math major at these schools, Dick focused his interest on this subject and took extra courses in addition to the normal Naval Academy curriculum. In addition to his academic load, Dick participated in a number of varied extracurricular ac- tivities. He was a company representative for the Lucky Bag, a member of the Radio Club, and an active participant in the Math-Science Seminar pro- gram. Dick ' s sports interests included a number of activities. He was a crew member of the Naval Academy Yawl, the Alert, which participated in a number of the major ocean sailing races on the east coast. On the intramural level he participated in 150 football, soccer, and cross-country. The qualities he has shown during his years at the Academy will insure his success in his chosen field during the coming years. 464 Class of 1963 THEODORE KARL KROHNE Brainerd, Minnesota Ted came to the Naval Academy from Northern Minnesota ' s " Tall Uncut, " but he quickly became used to the Navy way of life. His main interests are sports cars, playing the field, and rowing for Navy, though not necessarily in that order. After graduation, Ted ' s plans include the Golden Wings of Naval Aviation. Ted ' s easygoing manner, congenial personality, and natural ability will insure his success in whatever he attempts. CHARLES JOHN LaBLONDE Madison, Wisconsin The " Wisconsin Badger " arrived at USNA after studying for one semester at the University of Wisconsin. Navy life seemed to agree with Chuck, and he soon became a respected member of his class. Chuck was an enthusiastic member of various intramural athletic teams. After- noons were spent either participating in sports or behind the lab table studying and working for an eventual degree in organic chemistry. He has worked hard and put in long hours on both his regular schedule and his overload and has gained academic distinction by retaining a constant position on the Superintendent ' s List and earning the right to wear stars. His reserved and unassuming personality has made many lasting friends, and his ability to make a favorable impression should carry him a long way toward his goal. His natural ability, coupled with his love for water, both in and out of it, should prove him to be a fine and capable naval officer. GLENN PAUL LAURY Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania Hailing from the " City of Brotherly Love, " Glenn came to the Academy after four years of high school and one year at Bullis Prep. Aside from writing letters and telling war stories, he would occasionally open a book. He is a gentleman and one who put his heart into everything he ever did. Glenn was never at a loss for the right words in any situation. During the afternoons he could be found in the wrestling loft or leading the race to and from the drag house. Every Sunday he could be found in the tenor section of the Chapel Choir. Glenn ' s easygoing manner is sure to bring him much success in the future, which holds the promise of a fine career in the Marine Corps. Fifth Battalion 465 JOSEPH LEDERHAAS Port Jert ' is, New York Born in Austria, Joe came to the United States in 1952. After finish- ing high school, he joined the Navy and subsequently went to the Naval Academy Preparatory School after which he came to the Academy. The nemesis of all bridge and hearts players, Joe still found time for the " Blue Trampoline. " He also made valuable contributions to our company basketball and volleyball teams. Quite a chess player, Joe was one of the officers of that Club. A German major, Joe also was an active member of the German Club. A Starman and constant member of the Superintendent ' s List, his academics left little to be desired. His cosmopolitan background, personal charm, and gift of speech made him quite a ladies ' man. Joe goes on to a successful Naval career with the best wishes and respect of all his classmates. GEORGE ROBERT LEEVER South Haven, Alichigan George entered the Academy immediately after his graduation from South Haven High School, where he excelled as a student as well as an athlete. At the Naval Academy things were not any different. He played lightweight football and was a tremendous asset to his company in intra- mural sports. During his four years at the Academy, George found the academics fairly easy and could always be counted on for help. A ladies ' man, George could be found on occasional weekends escorting a member of the fairer sex. George ' s pleasant personality has gained him many friends and will continue to be an asset to him in his service career. CHARLES STEPHEN LYNCH Albion, Pennsyliaiiia Charlie came to us from Albion, Pennsylvania, where he gave of his time to the high school band and dramatic activities. Being denied his initial attempt to enter the Academy from high school, he entered the U. S. Navy. After spending a year ' s tour of duty, he was chosen to attend the Naval Academy Preparatory School at Bainbridge, Maryland. Follow- ing this schooling, he entered the Academy. Charlie has donated many of his ideas and time to various activities. He was a member of the Brigade Activities Committee and sang each Sunday with the Catholic Choir. In his spare moments Charlie enjoyed various music, especially Broadway musicals. Whether it be routine academics or the various com- pany and battalion sports in which he participated, Charlie always did the task at hand to the best of his ability. He will long be remembered for his capacity to be both serious and jovial at the proper and respective times. 466 Class of 1 963 CHARLES WELDON MARIK St. Louis, Missouri Hailing from St. Louis, Chuck entered Missouri University on a Naval R.O.T.C. scholarship upon graduation from Coyle High. Forced to drop out of that program because of health, Chuck joined the Navy in May of ' 58. Shortly thereafter, he won an appointment to NAPS and the Naval Academy. Once here. Chuck ' s likable personality and enthusiasm quickly marked him as a leader. Although never an academic " slash, " Chuck worked hard and managed to keep a very respectable average as well as participating in such extracurricular activities as WRNV, the German Club, and various hop committees. In athletics, his main interest was gymnastics and he soon became a stalwart member of the varsity squad. In addition, he was a valuable asset to the company sport squads he managed to find time for. All in all, his many and varied attributes mark him as a man bound to succeed in his chosen career in the Marine Corps. MICHAEL ANTHONY MARRA Niagara Falls, New York From the far northern reaches of Niagara Falls, Mike came to the shores of the Severn through a congressional appointment. An outstanding student at Trott Vocational High School, he has carried over his success in academics to the Academy where he has spent more time on the Superintendent ' s List than off it. Mike ' s interests go far beyond academics. A good athlete, fall found him playing halfback on the battalion football team, while spring found him wielding a lacrosse stick. Mike, proud of his Italian heritage, has excelled in that language while at the Academy and will provide the Navy with an outstanding interpreter. His outside interests range from girls to jazz to girls. Confident in his action and conscious of his abilities and limitations, Mike will definitely prove an asset to whatever branch of the service he chooses. PHILLIP SCHERRER MARSDEN Seattle, Washington A Navy junior from Seattle, Washington, coming to the Naval Academy directly out of high school, Phil soon found the rigors of plebe year much more demanding than fourth class academics. Phil, being one to whom studies came easily, made many a math problem and electrical circuit suddenly clear to us, as he patiently put his studies aside to help his less fortunate classmates. There seemed to be no limit to his agile mind ' s capacity, and he finished up his four years at the Academy with a major in Literature. In the afternoons Phil could be found in the varsity squash courts polishing up on his form for Coach Potter. Phil also found time for his myriad of hobbies, which ranged from judo to reading. Upon graduation. Navy Line, and possibly P. G. School is the choice of career for this outstanding Mid, who hopes to find himself at a later date back at the Academy instructing plebes in engineering. Fifth Battalion 467 KENT ALVAH MAXFIELD Pasadena, California Kent came to the Academy from Pasadena where he had already begun to make a name for himself in athletics. At the Academy, his per- formances as a goalie on the soccer team will be long remembered. His experience as a goalie was a great aid to the company ' s fieldball team in the winter. However, Kent ' s accomplishments were not limited to athletics. A consistent member of the Superintendent ' s List and a wearer of " Stars, " his academic achievements left little to be desired. Kent ' s ready willingness to assist his classmates and continuous efforts to maintain the high stand- ards of the Academy have always characterized his attitude. Although serious and industrious in Bancroft, he never lost the capacity for having fun and was known for his ability to charm the ladies. Kent ' s high moral character and industrious attitude should take him far in his career and prove to be a great asset to our country. GERALD ROBERT MAZETIS Luzerne, Pennsylvania Jerry came to the Academy from the U. S. Army via Columbian Preparatory School in Washington, D. C, and the Military Academy Prep School at Fort Belvoir, Va. A member of the Class of ' 59 at " MAPS, " Jerry narrowly escaped becoming a cadet at one of our sister academies. Although Jer did not extend his athletic depth beyond application to battalion or company sports, he annually looked forward to a successful season of company cross-country. Well known for his outstanding personal appearance and military bearing, Jerry would often be seen on the streets of Annapolis with a good looking girl at his side. Usually a quiet, soft- spoken individual, much of his time, while not dragging, was spent laboring over his books. Well-liked by his classmates, we feel certain that Jerry ' s unique personality will take him a long way along the road to success. EDWARD FRANCIS McBRIDE, JR. Sasebo, Japan Mac, originally from Philadelphia, now calls Sasebo his home town. He was an outstanding athlete in football and crew. During Plebe and Youngster years, he was a standout on the battalion and company football squads. Swimming is one of Mac ' s strong points, but as of now he has failed to jump from the tower. With his quick wit he is always able to make a grim situation humorous. Although not an outstanding student, Mac applies himself and carries a very respectable average. Among Mac ' s extracurricular activities are the Newman Club, the Gun Club, and girls. He also enjoys good music, chess, and card games of any sort. Mac looks forward to spending his service life as a member of the U. S. Marine Corps. 468 Class of 1 963 CHARLES BERNARD McCARTHY, JR. Fontana, California Charlie deserted the joys of college life, after one year at the University of California (Riverside), for a Navy life. While at the Academy, he was known as one of the true body builders. He could be found working out with his weights almost any time, especially during Youngster year. Another crowning achievement was learning to play bridge. His first month of " professional " lessons was for a rather nominal fee. Charlie ran the gamut of intramural sports, from YP Squadron to fi ldball, during his days at USNA. His background at UCR pushed him through his first year of academics at the Academy with a minimum of studying. Professional courses presented no problem either, as his interest was high in these fields. The service will get a dedicated man in Charlie. HARRY MURPHEY McCLOY, JR. Elizabethtown, Kentucky A natural athlete and the best dancer around, Murf was busy every weekend dragging and participating in varsity athletics. A member of the varsity lacrosse team, he also took an active part in the intramural sports program. Between girls and sports there wasn ' t much time for anything else. Occasionally during the week you might find him in his room studying but usually he was writing letters or contemplating the coming weekend. Murf did find time to earn the wings of a paratrooper third class summer. During leave periods, if Murf wasn ' t at home in Elizabethtown, or in New York, Philadelphia, Jacksonville, or Montreal, he would be " ' rockin ' and rollin ' " his way down Baltimore Street. Every- one who knows Murf feels sure that he will make as fine a name for himself as an officer in the Marine Corps as he did at Annapolis. JOHN FRANKLIN McINTYRE Pine Bluff, Arkansas Mac came to the Naval Academy after a year at Georgia Tech. It was there that he started his collegiate football career, playing on the freshman team. Here, he played first team fallback for the Plebes, then graduated to the varsity. He played fieldball for the company in the winter, to continue playing contact sports. With a little effort, Johnny made the Superintendent ' s List plebe year, but after the strain, he was ready to settle down to the routine of playing bridge, drinking coffee, and dragging every weekend. In his free time, he participated in the Chess and German Clubs. Mac ' s easygoing manner, and varied interests helped to make him one of the most popular members of his class. Fifth Battalion 469 DENIS CHRISTOPHER MEREDITH Baltimore, Maryland The fair city of Baltimore has been the scene of great events during our sojourn at the Academy: victorious football games against Maryland and Air Force, and a company party that went down in the history book the Officer of the Watch must keep. One of the city ' s momentous con- tributions to Annapolis is Denis. Although he asserts that his chief claim to fame is being too lazy to push the " coast button, " his friends disagree and point to his shinny stars as a rebuttal. Always known as a fast worker, Denis tries to get far enough ahead so that he can do his studying for June finals during Christmas Leave and have the remainder of the year free to indulge in reading. Alas, our genius is regularly frustrated by his classmates who know that no request for help will be denied. DAVID WILLIAM MEYERS North Totiawanda, New York Torn between a desire to attend several different Academies, Dave finally decided on USNA. The Air Force ' s loss was the Navy ' s gain. At a school where sports are one of the major field of endeavors, Dave is capable of entering into any conversation with his thorough knowledge of sports activities, both past and present. An ardent athlete himself, Dave was a discus thrower on the Plebe track team and helped his company and battalion sports teams in volleyball, cross-country, and 150 football. Be- sides dragging girls from Annapolis and the U. N., some of Dave ' s free time was spent with the German Club and the Naval Academy Christian Association. With his personality and ability, Dave will find many re- wards in whatever career he may choose. ROBERT WILLIAM MILLS Galesburg, Illinois Bob graduated from Galesburg High School in 1959. He was employed as an Assistant Highway Engineer before entering the Academy in July. During Plebe year, Bob was active in sports as a member of the Brigade championship battalion swimming team and Regimental champion- ship intramural basketball team. He was also a member of the Plebe golf team and Plebe hop committee. The highlight of Bob ' s four years came during the summer of I960 when he sailed across the Atlantic on the Coast Guard ' s square-rigged training ship, the " Eagle. " While on this cruise he visited London, Paris, and Oslo. The next three years found Bob as a member of the varsity golf and intramural basketball teams. He was also active in WRNV, the Academy ' s radio station. 470 Class of 1963 ROGER JOSEPH MILOS Biwabik, Minnesota The enchantment of the sea captured the heart of Roger Milos, a Midwesterner, while he was still attending high school in Biwabik. Grad- uated as salutatorian of his class, he proceeded directly to USNA, where through hard work, he was able to maintain his high academic standing. Roger ' s great ability for long and intelligent conversations soon brought him many friends. Participation in the Catholic Choir and the Newman Club occupied much of Rog ' s free time, not to overlook those nightly phone calls which became a regular occurrence during youngster year. His interests hav e been wide and varied as shown by his participation in a variety of sports at the academy. Roger ' s keen mind and strong sense of values will assure him of a successful career as an officer. CHARLES STAMPS MINTER, III Annapolis, Maryland Charlie came to us directly from Washington-Lee High School. A member of the National Schoolboy Champion crew at W-L, Charlie con- tinued his pursuit of this sport here at the Naval Academy and earned his laurels pulling in the varsity boats. During the winter Charlie played bas- ketball and football. One of his outstanding characteristics was his refusal to submit to boredom, regardless of the circumstances. This was partly due to his enthusiasm, but mostly it was a result of his unlimited ingenuity. His father ' s assignment as Commandant of Midshipmen during second class year provided him with many interesting situations, and his class- mates, plenty of ammunition for good-natured kiddings. His good-natured disposition and smile will be welcome wherever he goes and will assure the success he richly deserves. WAYNE ORVILLE MOSHER DeKalb, Illinois A native of the " Land of Lincoln, " Wayne came to USNA with enthusiasm and an interest in all facets of the Navy. Known for his love of the water, he focused his athletic endeavors on the aquatic sports in- cluding battalion and Plebe swimming, water polo, and varsity swimming. A quiet and serious individual, Wayne is also known by his many friends for his cheerful and friendly attitude. When not at the pool, he can be found writing letters to the music of a well-used stereo. Because of his leave-time travels, sincerity with the gals (many of them), and his interest in new faces, letter writing has been an occupation born of necessity as his abundance of mail from all parts of the country will testify. For a career in the service Wayne has chosen Navy Line. Fifth Battalion 471 CHARLES MARIO MUSITANO Erlton, New Jersey Charlie, commonly known as Moose, came to us from Erlton after attending Georgia Tech and Drexel Tech. While here he participated in battalion football, varsity rifle, and made the Annapolis to Newport Ocean Race. Although Moose got off to a slow start during his Plebe year, he steadily progressed to become a hard working member of the Brigade. Charlie always had a pleasant smile and hello any time day or night, and could always be counted on to come through in a pinch. His extracurricular activities included the Radio Club and the Rocket Club. During second class summer, the aviation bug scored again, and Charlie is planning to fly himself to a career in Naval Aviation. MIKE EDWARD NADOLSKI Westfield, Massachusetts Probably the most sarcastic man in the Brigade, Mike hails from the teeming metropolis of Westfield, Massachusetts, where he excelled in baseball and basketball at St. Mary ' s High. Always on the go, Mike ' s many activities at the Academy include such organizations as the Foreign Relations Club and the Advanced Mathematics and Science Seminar and such sports as squash and soccer. One of ' 63 ' s leading hedonists, Mike ' s main interest seems to be in liberty and female companionship. His En- gineering major and years as a " star-man " should help him into his career choice of the Civil Engineering Corps. Always more than willing to help a friend in any situation, Ski has always been popular with his classmates. Whatever his final career selection may be, his keen mind, piercing humor, and winning personality are certain to pave the road to success. 472 Class of 1 963 WILLIAM ALBERT NAIVA Rahway, New Jersey After two years at Rutgers University, Bill joined the Navy to see the world. His world soon became limited to the Annapolis area when the Navy realized his potential as an officer. While at the Academy he became a member of the Naval Academy sailing squadron and participated in several ocean races. The combination of his friendly personality, wit, and all around capabilities will certainly carry Bill far in his chosen field. Whatever he does, Bill is not the type that needs to be wished luck as he makes his own wherever he goes. JOHN WAYNE NELSON Hoquiam, Washington Hoquiam ' s loss was the Naval Academy ' s gain when " Nellie " reported to Annapolis after graduation from high school. His cheerful personality was soon evident, and he became known as the only man to laugh his way through Plebe Year. His diversity was seen in the intramural sports program, where he bolstered battalion and company teams from basketball to badminton. His enthusiasm for sports spread to the P. T. Department, where he was seen in a 15 round bout with Dave Greeneisen with the winner receiving an " oscar " for his performance. Academics never seemed to present a problem to Wayne, and he astonished his classmates with the amount of effort he put forth in this field. His winning person- ality marks Wayne as a man to win friends and influence people both while at the Academy and in his future years. L ROBERT GREENLEE NEWTON Ashville, Ohio " Newt, " as he was known to his classmates, hails from Ashville, Ohio. Before entering the Academy, " Newt " spent a year at Ohio State University and then entered the Navy, which sent him to NAPS to prepare him for the entrance exams. Prior to entrance and during his Plebe year. Bob played football. He is known for his slow, consistent bridge game and for his great speed in distance runs for the company cross-country teams. He also plays fast games of squash and handball. An avid follower of the stock market. Bob hopes to make his money from stocks while he carries on a successful career in the Navy. Fifth Battalion 473 TERENCE JAMES O ' BRIEN Saratoga Springs, New York Terry, who hails from upstate New York, came to the Academy after spending a year at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He rather re- luctantly accepted the change from frat parties to plebe indoctrination, and after the initial shock wore off in the middle of youngster year, he found himself well settled into the routine of Academy life. A frequent member of the Superintendent ' s List, he earned stars his plebe year and started an overload program in hopes of a possible degree. Terry, a member of the Newman Club, takes a great interest in sports; basketball being his favor- ite. Pop music, sailing, and happy hours are also high on his lists of favorites. Terry ' s biggest thrill while at the Academy occurred during his second class summer with his frequent escapades in the T-34 ' s. Although undecided about his future plans, his experiences at the Academy should give him a good start on the road to success. DANIEL GEORGE O ' CLARAY Aberdeen, Washington Dan came to the Academy from the great Northwest, and by the end of plebe year, he found that life here did not compare to the life at Gray ' s Harbor Junior College. Youngster year, Dan did his best to change this situation. When the regulations said that he could date, he could be found exercising his outgoing personality on the fairer sex. After fighting the academic departments to a one-sided finish, Dan was usually found jumping around Thompson Field, either high jumping or broad jumping. When he wasn ' t on the varsity track field, he was adding his talents to the plebe and company basketball teams. Sundays found him singing in the Chapel Choir. Dan ' s singing was not confined to Sundays, and his roommates often heard the Kingston Trio plus one. In addition to this he was a member of the Portuguese Club, Reception Committee, and Honor Committee. Navy Line looms as his service choice, with a career in sub- marines foremost in his mind. PAUL MATTHEW O ' CONNOR Boston, Massachusetts Paul entered the Academy via Boston Latin High School. He has participated in cross-country each winter and volleyball in the spring. One could usually find him either with his nose in a book — academic perhaps, but not always — or with a picture in front of him and a pen in his hand. When this wasn ' t the case, one could find him in bed catching up on his sleep. He was the type who worried about failing, although he never really had too much trouble. One exception to this case was the courses connected with the English Department, his best academic subject. Paul would always instill into the daily routine a little humor, both for himself and his classmates. He has made many life long friends during his four years at the Academy. 474 Class of 1 963 RANDOLPH FRANCIS ORLOWSKI Jersey City, New jersey Randy entered the Academy after attending Newark College of Engineering for one year. A product of Jersey City, Randy has excelled in academics as well as sports. His high school and college experience made him a big asset to the battalion basketball team. His other athletic achieve- ments include the Plebe gymnastics team and battalion football. Academics were never a problem for Randy, as shown by his name on the Superin- tendent ' s List. Although Randy kept good grades, he always found time to participate in the German Club activities. Being a member of a musical combo before coming to the Academy, Randy has become an avid jazz fan. His main interests include girls, dancing, fine foods, and good parties, many of which he organized. Randy ' s friendly attitude and good sense of humor will surely make him a success in whatever field he chooses for a career. MICHAEL ANTHONY OWEN Kansas City, Missouri Among the Midshipmen of ' 63 from the western prairies, few are Syrian, and fewer still came to the Academy from a preparation for the priesthood. These distinctions Mike steadfastly attempted to maintain and defend. He volunteered to sing and enjoyed the choir. He wanted to write and joined the Splinter. He desired good grades and talked of studying. The Navy wanted an officer and tested him severely. The Navy wanted an athlete and kept him busy on the conditioning squad or managing. Mike ' s extroverted personality made many friends and made his life and the lives of those about him just a little more enjoyable. His ability to not worry about what he holds of little worth and to religiously pursue what he holds valuable will be the prominent trait making Mike Owen a success. PHILLIP ELLIOT PAROTTI Silver City, New Mexico Pep ' s nickname is a personification of the man himself. His rigor and enthusiasm have been a constant inspiration to everyone in contact with him. This hard charger has been on various intramural sports squads as well as the staffs of such publications as Log, Splinter, and Reef Points. Pep believes in a good Plebe year and is very professionally minded, as many a Plebe will attest to. Pep ' s continuous good humor, strength of character, and initiative have made him one of the finest members of the Brigade and will undoubtedly insure him a very successful career in the Marine Corps. L Fifth Battalion 475 JUAN GUILLERMO PELAEZ Aledelliii, Colombia, South America Juan came to USNA from Colombia, South America. Before coming to the Academy Juan spent three years in the Colombian Naval Academy. While in the Colombia Naval Academy, Juan established an outstanding record, and upon his departure, he stood number two in his class. Juan devoted his activity time while at the Academy to the Portuguese Club and stood at the top of his class in Portuguese. His other interests included classical and popular music and literature, Juan will return upon graduation to Colombia to receive his commission in the Colombian Navy. JOHN ERIC POLLARD Bethesda, Maryland After spending a year at William and Mary College, John made his debut at the Naval Academy. Possessed of an alert mind and above-average intelligence, John hit the academics hard and, after a harrowing brush with the steam department plebe year, was very successful. Musically in- clined, he spent much of his free time playing on the clarinet and strum- ming his guitar. The tall, dark, and handsome type, John was liked by the girls, and although he locked horns with the Executive Department oc- casionally over his long wavy locks, there is no doubt that they con- tributed substantially to his amorous success. Coming from a Navy family, John had a chance to look over all the aspects of the service, and after due consideration, decided on a career in the Marine Corps. There is no doubt in the minds of any of his friends that he will be eminently success- ful in this endeavor, for his good nature and intelligence will make him a true leader of men. DAVID BROWNLEE PUCKETT Princeton, Indiana After a year in the NROTC and Speed Scientific School at the University of Louisville, David entered the Naval Academy with both a good academic background and an early start in his career. From those very first days, he took an active part in Academy life. David ' s talents never seem to be limited. With plenty of varsity experience during his high school days in Princeton, Indiana, his winning abilities in basketball and squash could be counted on in company competitions. In addition, David ' s name could consistently be found on the Superintendent ' s List. When not working on his mathematics major, his collection of jazz records pro- vided him with a break during his free time. His outstanding memory for professional facts was rarely wrong, as many can painfully recall. David always seemed to find time to help someone with his academic subjects, but to his friends he will long be remembered for his friendly smile and voice, which always reflected his Hoosier pride. 476 Class of 1 963 WILLIAM DAVID RABIN Jackson, Mississippi Arriving at U.S.N. A. from the " Deep South, " Bill retained his southern drawl throughout the four years. When he wasn ' t at a committee meeting, he could be found with either a slide rule or a tennis racket in his hand. A permanent place on the Superintendent ' s List and a never dying love for " rock-and-roll " music characterized him throughout his days at Annapolis. Bill ' s irrepressible spirit made him a favorite with the ladies and no outing was complete without having " The Nose " along to make things move a little faster. Firmly convinced that New Orleans was Heaven, he lived for leave so that he could revisit Bourbon Street and hear the originals of his records. His scholarship and personality, along with praises from the Math Department will go with him to the Fleet, and insure him a wonderful career in the Navy. JOHN ALBERT RANK, III Trenton, New Jersey Rusty arrived at the Naval Academy after graduating from the Lawrenceville School. After the usual number of bumps with the academic and executive departments. Rusty finished Plebe year a good bit more military than when he started it. During his years at the Academy, Rusty spent most of his afternoons either on the soccer fields or in the pool, for he was a member of both the varsity soccer and varsity swimming teams. His other extracurricular activities were the Reception Committee, WRNV, and the Newman Club. His eventual aim is to become an officer in the United States Marine Corps. His easy going attitude, his enjoyment of physical exercise, and his self-confidence should help him towards this goal. STEPHEN WALTER RICHTER Washington, D. C. Upon graduation from Gonzaga High School in Washington, young Steve found himself at the Naval Academy where he continued to make everyone aware of his outstanding ability as a losing card player. Steve has participated in the Y.P. Squadron, the German Club, the Reception Committee, and has managed varsity baseball. Besides his love of cards, Steve is also interested in World History and music. He considers himself one of the best shower singers in the world. After graduation he hopes for a long and successful career as a Naval Officer. Fifth Battalion 477 WALTER STEPHEN ROBERTS Keysville, Virginia Steve was appointed for the class of ' 62 but after failing to qualify for entrance then, attended Bullis Prep in Silver Spring, Maryland, for a year and entered with the class of ' 63. He kept his time divided between academics and the Ocean Sailing Squadron with the former constantly after him for devoting too much time to the latter. After four years of water- filled boots, he has decided that Navy Air is the only way to travel, but unless he can get a plane with room for his seeing-eye dog, he ' ll have to think of something else. WILLIAM JACKSON ROBERTS, JR. Spokane, Washington In July ' 59, Jay retired from civilian life and made his way to USNA where he put in an energetic four years. This happy go lucky guy has never been known to be in poor spirits. While waiting for a weekend in which he could drag, he played squash, golf, volleyball, and Softball. Jay has been known to be hard on plebes but his good humor has kept things light. During summers he could usually be found on a submarine or at an auto show looking at Jaguars. Jay ' s dedicated attitude and light, yet de- termined personality will surely make the Navy happy to have him aboard. RICHARD BROUGH ROGERS Los Angeles. California Dick, hailing from a place in the far west called Los Angeles, seemed destined to come to Annapolis. His whole life has been centered around water whether it was sailing, swimming, skiing, or skindiving. At the Academy, Dick found ample opportunity to release his energies in this direction by trying his hand at ocean sailing but soon gave that up for plebe and varsity crew and swimming. A true advocate of bridge, Dick spent many weekends in that pursuit and actually started to win second class year. In between, Dick took time out to study, passing easily, although Science and Engineering had him wondering at times. Whenever there was a laugh to be had or a joke to be played, Dick was always sure to be in on it and likely as not to be the leader. Dick will long be remembered by his classmates for his good personality and easygoing nature. 478 Class of 1 963 WILLIAM RAYMOND ROSENFELT Winter Park, Florida Rosy, a cheerful personality from the Sunshine State, entered the Academy via BuUis Prep. His fun-loving nature brightened many dark moments for those who lived with him, not to, mention those gay parties after football games. Although he ' d rather listen to Jimmy Reed albums than study, Rosy got along pretty well with the academic departments. At Hospital Point, his hard play and fighting spirit were major assets to his company cross-country and soccer teams. Athletics also occupied his free time, for he was fond of golf and water sports. Respected and well-liked by his classmates, he will be a fine officer and a good friend to his ship- mates in the Fleet. BENJAMIN FRANKLIN ROSS Memphis, Tennessee Ben hails from Memphis, Tennessee, as anyone can easily tell after talking with him. He attended Christian Brothers College for one year before coming to the Naval Academy. While being very active in athletics during his stay at the Academy, he still managed to keep in the upper percentage of his class in academics. As a plebe he played both basketball and baseball, but concentrated solely on playing basketball after that first year. Since he has always enjoyed flying, there was never any doubt in his mind that Naval Aviation would be his service selection. Ben was an ardent member of the Newman Club and always was ready to give a helping hand to anyone who needed it. A fine student, athlete, and companion, Ben will always be remembered and certainly deserves rich success in his future efforts. PAUL JOHN RYAN Brighton, Massachusetts Paul was born on 22 July 1940 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He completed his secondary schooling at Brighton High School in Boston. While in high school, Paul was an end on the football team, goalie for the school ' s ice hockey team, a member of the Junior Rotary Club of Boston, and was also the Outstanding Senior Cadet in his last year. After graduating from high school, Paul enrolled in the Engineering Course at Northeastern University in Boston. During his one year at Northeastern, he played goalie for the Freshman Ice Hockey team. Turning down an offer from the Military Academy, Paul entered U.S.N. A. in July, 1959. Unfortunately, a knee injury has limited his athletic endeavors at the Academy. Paul is a member of the Auto Club and, as is to be expected, his hobbies are reading, music, and auto racing. Fifth Battalion 479 IAN ROWLAND SARGENT Alexandria, Virginia " Sarge " came to the Naval Academy after two enjoyable years on Cayuga ' s waters at Cornell University. At Cornell he was a member of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity before joining the largest fraternity in the world. Upon reaching the Academy, " Sarge " settled down to business and received consistently good grades. Undaunted by Plebe year, " Sarge " was known for his ability for being a " victim of circumstances. " Leaving all his eligibility in lacrosse behind at Cornell, " Sarge " turned to ocean sailing and quickly became one of the Academy ' s best skippers. He was very popular among his classmates because of his constant joking and his philosophy of " anything for a laugh. " Upon graduation " Sarge " plans to enter the fleet for a year and then go to flight school. ROBERT ARTHUR SCHAEFER Steubenville, Ohio Bob came to us fresh from high school in Steubenville. It was there that he began to develop the football and wrestling abilities which he displayed admirably throughout his years here on the plebe and varsity teams. Between trying to satisfy his voracious appetite and sleeping. Bob managed to find time for studying and maintained a good academic aver- age. Bob was something of a ladies ' man, and never seemed to have much trouble finding a date for the weekend. He always knew where to look for his drags and never left a pretty stone unturned. Never one to let things get him down, Bob is well-liked by all who know him and will make an excellent officer. CARL EDWARD SCHAFER, II Fort Wayne, Indiana The year 1959 was a good one for the Hoosier State of Indiana because it was then that one of her favorite sons, Carl Schafer, better known as " Schafe " entered the Naval Academy and began his career in the Naval Service. Besides extending his services as the " Log " and " Splinter " representative for his company, he participated with skill in the Brigade intramural sports program — and with considerably less enthusiasm in the Wednesday P-rades. Although he never wore stars, Carl was an excellent tutor and gave much valuable extra instruction to classmates whose inclinations were other than academic. Away football games and summer cruises were indispensable parts of his Academy career. One of the swinging- est party guys around, you could always find him at the " O " Club or out on the town. Schafe ' s many friends throughout the Brigade agree that Indiana has turned out a fine future Naval Officer. 480 Class of 1 963 JOHN MALCOLM SCHANTZ Washington, D. C. Mai gave up five stripes at the Valley Forge Military Academy to become a plebe at Annapolis, and since plebe year has been a top con- tender for the title of class humorist. His talent for cartooning and his knack for finding something amusing about any situation helped immensely in keeping us out of the doldrums. His gift of expression gave him the edge socially as well as academically, and rumor has it that he possessed the longest line in the Brigade. That this line was effective was clearly demonstrated by the many pretty girls who were seen with him on the weekends. When he could not be found in the fencing loft, working out with the varsity sabre team, he was in the Lucky Bag office carrying out his duties as Art Editor. He also cartooned for the Log and Splinter. Imagination, humor, and enthusiasm — Mai Schantz has all he needs to make himself a welcome addition to our Navy. CLARENCE WILLIAM SEAY Greenville, South Carolina A product of Greenville, " Bunky " came to the Naval Academy after completing a year at Clemson College. His congenial and competi- tive attitude has guided his footsteps in both his studies and out on the playing field. An avid hunter and lover of water sports, Bunky is especially talented when it comes to water skiing, which he managed to do a lot of during second class summer. Bunky is known to enjoy the finer things in life, which include girls, dancing, exotic foods, and good music. Although the German and Chess Clubs occupied a great deal of his time, he always managed to get in a good game of bridge. In future years he will no doubt strengthen the spirit of any wardroom and will always be remembered by his classmates as the man who could get the job done while taking the drudgery out of it. STUART WILLISTON SETTLE, JR. Uniontown, Pennsylvania This likable chap came to us from the soft coal regions of western Pennsylvania, straight out of high school. Known for his quick wit and keen sense of humor, he was well-liked throughout the Brigade. He was quite active in debate here at the Academy, and given the chance, could probably argue a black crow white. His other activities in the Brigade in- cluded the German and Foreign Relations Clubs. Will never seemed to sweat the studies too much but usually ended the term with a gentlemanly average. When quizzed about his plans for the future, Will had this to say: " With a little luck and some inside pull maybe I ' ll be assigned as Assistant Engineering Officer on an APA out of Norfolk. " He can ' t be serious, but whatever branch of the Navy he chooses, we feel sure that he ' ll make a great success of it. Fifth Battalion 481 RICHARD JOSEPH SHANLEY, JR. Providence, Rhode Island Dick came to U.S.N. A. from Providence after spending one year at the Coast Guard Academy. During his Plebe year, Dick found time to play football, but after having some trouble academically that year, he decided to really buckle down to his studies and his grades subsequently showed his determination was paying off. Dick continued to show his fierce competitive spirit and love for rough play on the athletic field with the company soccer team in the fall and fieldball team in the winter. Even with sports and academics, Dick found time for the fairer sex, especially dur- ing his leave periods from the Academy. However, Dick ' s first love is the service of his country, and he hopes to pursue his career in the Marine Corps. ROBERT D. SHAW, JR. Millville, New Jersey Hailing from the swamp lands of South Jersey, Bob came to the Academy from his hometown high school. Easygoing, with a smile on his lips most of the time, Bob tried to keep the " system " from getting to him. Refraining from varsity sports because of a high school injury, Bob spent most of his time with intramural sports, women, and trying to keep ahead of the academic departments. The summer leave periods usually found Bob trying to earn some spending money for the coming year. Because of a face with many wrinkles, definitely not acquired from worry, this young man is known by his closer friends as " Prune-Face. " The storms in and around Bancroft Hall weathered, the fleet will find itself with a personable young officer whose abilities will carry him far. RICHARD LEWIS SIDFORD North Hollywood, California Sid, born in Los Angeles, lived there for eighteen years under the nickname " Lizard. " During this time he cultivated a love for Nevada, his neighboring state. At Harvard School he was outstanding in track and Army R.O.T.C. On reporting to USNA he acquired a new nickname and the upperclass attempted to give him a new character by forcing him to associate himself with girls, but, he is still not a ladies ' man. Sid has shown great courage and determination by scoring upset victories over the Math Department no less than three times. In track, Sid excelled at USNA just as he did in high school, running first leg of the varsity mile relay when- ever he could take time out from studying. His courage, integrity, and fine sense of humor lead us to expect great things from Sid in the " destroyers or something smaller " in which he desires to make his career. 482 Class of 1 963 GEORGE MATHIESON SINGER Hopewell, Virginia " Punch " came to the Academy after one year at V.P.I. He has the distinction of having gone through two Plebe years, one at V.P.I, and one at the Academy. " Punch " was also one of the better sailors at the Academy. He had many other interests, ranging from company football to collecting records, particularly those of Ella Fitzgerald. " Punch " also turned into a cribbage fan and soon became known as an accomplished player. A diehard Southerner, he liked to sit and defend the Confederacy in the Civil War against all opposition. His cheerful disposition made him very popular among his classmates and should continue to do so in his future career in the Supply Corps. JIMMY RAY SLAUGHTER Perry, Florida Jim, whose ancestry was of staunch civilian stock, began his naval career by joining the regular navy after graduation from high school. He came to Annapolis by way of the Naval Preparatory School on a fleet appointment. Following up four years of high school football and a season as captain, Jim took an active part in intramural football. His main hobby was firearms, and in his spare time he could usually be found thumbing through his stacks of gun books. An easygoing, level-headed guy, Jim was well known and liked by his classmates throughout the Brigade. His friendly smile and easy manner should make him a sure success in his future service. TERRY RICHARD SLOAN Marietta, Ohio Terry hails from the Ohio River Valley and has upheld the great traditions of the Appalachian Mountain men throughout his few years here at U.S.N. A. His first love has proved to be sailing on the varsity Ocean Racing Team, despite the fact that he hardly knew what a sailboat was before attending the Academy. On weekends when he wasn ' t sailing, Terry could be found playing football or basketball with the guys, and once in a while, studying. Though he held no great love for academics, Terry always had a respectable grade average. One of Terry ' s most prized possessions was his ever present guitar, which helped to while away many a long winter night. Always ready to help out in a pinch, Terry should do well in his intended career in Navy Air. Fifth Battalion 483 GARY SMITH Stockton, California Gary hails from the heart of the San Joaquin Valley. Fresh out of Lincoln High, Gary came to the Academy to really make a name for him- self. He managed to maintain an average grade point despite the frantic efforts of the ' Foreign Language Department. Tuesday nights found Gary carrying his string bass to NA-10 practice. When not picking out some number on his bass or listening to jazz, he could usually be found navigat- ing his Y.P. on the high seas. Always a welcome addition at company parties and happy hours, Gary ' s outstanding personality enabled him to always come out with an attractive drag. An excellent representative of the Brigade, Gary should find a rewarding career awaiting him in Navy Line. WILTON JEREMAIN SMITH, JR. Salinas, California Hailing from the Golden West, Jerry soon proved to be the Academy ' s gain and California ' s loss. An outstanding student throughout his three years at Salinas High, he has maintained good grades and has shown himself to be very capable on the athletic field. A lover of contact sports, fall found him playing battalion football, and spring doing his ut- most to drown the opposition for the battalion water polo team. His interests go far beyond this, however, as evidenced by his participation in the Foreign Relations and German Clubs. During his free time one could usually find Jerry with his nose in a book on international politics or one of the great literary classics or listening to classical music. Possessing all the attributes of leadership and a sense of doing the right thing at the right time, Jerry is certain to come out on top in whatever career he chooses to pursue. THOMAS EDWARD SOLLARS Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania Tom was born in the mountains of Pennsylvania and brought up in the " ways of the wild. " His proficiency in the hunting, fishing, skiing, and archery departments will always attest to this fact. Tom, however, was one of those chosen to follow the ways of the sea, and so, in 1959, he accepted an appointment to the Academy. At the Academy, Tom was a member of the varsity Dinghy Sailing team and a Plebe cheerleader. He was an active member of the Juice Gang and the Catholic Choir and helped to compile the 1963 Reef Points. With a firm, solid foundation behind him, Tom should have no trouble in building his career in the future. 484 Class of 1963 CHARLES ANTHONY SPADAFORA Indiana, Pennsylvania Charlie came to the shores of the Severn from the " Christmas Tree Capital of the World, " Indiana, Pennsylvania. Academics and athletics took up nearly all of his time, but Chuck could occasionally be seen stroll- ing the streets of Annapolis with a good looking drag. On the sports scene, Charlie participated in 150 football, brigade boxing, basketball, and baseball. His crowning achievement was becoming Brigade Boxing Champ during second class year. Chuck also took an active part in the Newman Club, the Catholic Choir, and the Foreign Relations Club. As so many others in his class, he hopes to go into the Marine Corps upon graduation. JAMES HENRY STAGEMAN Council Bluffs, Iowa Jim came to us from Abraham Lincoln High, Council Bluffs, Iowa, the heart of the Big Ten country. This fact becomes quite evident every time someone mentions football. Jim ' s knowledge of football plus his height gave our company and battalion football teams many points. His heated discussions about the finer points of the game always proved to be exciting as well as informative. Besides football, Jim was active in volley- ball, crew, and basketball. Jim ' s warm personality easily won the friendship of his classmates. He is at his best at parties and happy hours. His con- tributions to the Air Force- Game patty during Youngster year spread his reputation throughout not only the Brigade but throughout Baltimore. He will have many happy memories to look back upon later in his career. ROBERT DAVID STIGER, JR. Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania Bob came directly to the Naval Academy from high school in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Although he had a tough fight with the academic departments during plebe year, his hard work and determination enabled him to improve greatly in following years. An active participant in intramural sports. Bob proved to be a valuable man in boxing, football, and Softball. Coming from a long line of civilians was no problem to Bob as he eagerly accepted his tasks and responsibilities and laid a strong foundation for his future years in the service. Bob plans to spend his military career in the Marine Corps where his devotion to duty and love of service will open many gateways to success and happiness. Fifth Battalion 485 GERALD JOSEPH STILES Wilburton, Oklahoma Whirlwind Gerry from Wilburton, in the heart of the tornado coun- try has been storming up a fair amount of activity during his four year tour at the Academy. Whether dragging, working at the business end of a slide rule, or whipping around the Severn in a dinghy, Gerry usually has been producing fine results. He has been Navy ' s representative often as a top notch dinghy sailor with a real will to win. Soft spoken most of the time he can still come up with a joke or light word to brighten the atmosphere. Gerry has been a light student of poker and could be seen in the middle of any impromptu game. His interest and knowledge extends also to all aspects of aviation, as many a plebe will testify. Although con- sidering many career choices, he has the ability and background to prove a credit to any branch of the service. HOWARD SANFORD STODDARD Nutley, New Jersey Sandy was born and raised in Nutley, New Jersey. He entered the Naval Academy straight from high school where he excelled in the class- room and on the athletic field. The old adage, " You can ' t keep a good man down " fits Sandy perfectly. He maintained a fine academic record, making the Superintendent ' s List while overloading in history and foreign languages. Sandy represented his class and company on the Honor Com- mittee and was a member of the Foreign Relations Club. As if this were not enough, he turned his talents towards athletic endeavors where he was a member of the varsity football and lacrosse squads. Sandy ' s drive, easy- going personality, and ability to make friends will make him a real success in the career of his choice. JOHN FREDERICK STONE Kansas City, Missouri " Stonie " was raised in Kansas City, where he attended North Kansas City High School. Before he came to USNA, he relaxed with a year of college. He was active in high school clubs and sports, but here, the studies limited him to battalion football and the Reception Committee. His in- terests are typical, he likes his cars and weights, but his main interest seems to be his girl back home. Upon graduation Stonie intends to go into the Marine Aviation Program. 486 Class of 1963 HERBERT HILLHOUSE SWINBURNE, JR. Oreland, Pennsylvania It must have been a lean and mean day in 1941 when the first son was born to the Swinburne household; for ever since then, it has raised a fellow with a real " go-gettem " attitude — Herb. In his earlier days, Herb was faced with sickness, but by grit and determination, and the pulling on an oar, he turned himself into a prime example of physical fitness. Since being at the Academy, Herb has exemplified this by rowing varsity crew during the seasons, and boxing in between. After Youngster Cruise, he earned his parachutist ' s wings at Ft. Benning, Ga. Herb also desires to attend SCUBA School after First Class Cruise. Oh, yes. Herb has also set his goal upon becoming a millionaire. With some of his well-devised schemes, he ' ll probably be the first in ' 63 to do so. ROBERT NIEL TANIS Geneseo, New York This good-natured New Yorker came to the Academy from the University of Rochester. A varsity soccer player, Bob devoted his autumn afternoons in the fullback slot of Coach Warner ' s fine team. Bob ' s athletic ability is pointed up by the fact that he was undefeated in battalion squash the first season he ever played. At WRNV he was a member of all three departments, engineering, programming, and administrative. Bob ' s boundless energy and genuine enthusiasm has been poured into every project under- taken. Although books were never his strongest point. Bob never had any real trouble with academics. He is one of those rare individuals who gets along with everyone. A good deal of common sense rounds out Bob ' s personality and points toward a promising future in his chosen field. GRANT RICHARD TELFER Bellevue, Washington Grant journeyed to the Academy from the shores of Lake Washing- ton, in our great Pacific Northwest. While in high school, he played football and indulged in quite a bit of snow and water skiing. His en- thusiasm for sports continued at Navy, where he was a member of the Plebe 150 football team and various company and battalion sports squads. While a Midshipman, much of the rest of Grant ' s time was spent dragging, as well as participating in extracurricular functions. He was a member of the Newman Club, Automotive Engineering Club,, and Spanish Club. In addition to these organized activities, Grant had a flair for photography, which can be attested to by anyone who has visited his room. If " Telf " can hold out against adversity in the Fleet as he did against four years of onslaughts by the Science Department, he will be headed for a successful career as a Naval Officer. Fifth Battalion 487 LAILE HUNTER THOMPSON, JR. Bellaire, Texas Hunter came to USNA directly from high school in Bellaire, Texas, still singing " The Eyes of Texas. " He soon gave this up to return to the more serious pursuits of playing chess and girls. Joining the Chess Club, Hunter quickly showed himself to be one of the top players at the Academy, but he decided to devote his full time (when he wasn ' t asleep, of course) to the pursuit of the fairer sex. Starting plebe year at the Academy, he began to build his reputation for having at least one girl in every port. Hunter and academics never did see eye to eye but he always seemed to avoid the " tree! " PHILIP SCOTT THORLIN Merced, California Having been an " Army brat " and an ROTC student prior to his entrance, Scott marched to the Naval Academy well acquainted with the military life. However, during his spare time, Scott ' s lighter interests were consumed in writing, often having some of his work published in his home- town newspaper. Although he was no academic genius, Scott always seemed to do well in his classes, particularly French. After cla,sses Scott spent his afternoons in the fencing loft where he has done well since Plebe year. With his easygoing manner Scott will always be remembered as a loyal friend to all. ROBERT BERNHARD TIESLAU Jacksonville, Florida The oldest son in a Navy family, Bob has lived in various locations from Hawaii to Virginia in the best traditions of a constantly moving service. At the Academy, Bob ' s main interest was football. He has played the sport on all levels — company, battalion, and finally varsity. He also played on Plebe lacrosse and battalion lacrosse teams. Coming into his own as a scholar. Bob spent some time on the Superintendent ' s List, and he has chosen mathematics as his major. Bob hopes this will help him in his career as a Naval Aviator, which is his ultimate goal. Another of his goals is eventual marriage, which comes as no surprise to his classmates who frequently see him in the company of many a young beauty. 488 Class of 1 963 CHARLES ANTHONY TRABANDT Ann Arbor, Michigan One of the Big Ten ' s biggest contributions to the Navy in recent years has been this energetic, amiable package of " get-up and go, " known to the many of us fortunate enough to make his acquaintance as " Tony. " Bringing with him to USNA a great love of sports in general, and lacrosse and football in particular, he pursued them with a dedication and drive which characterized him for four years. An academic slash as well, Tony ' s efforts in behalf of his classmates will long be remembered and appreciated. His love for swinging music, his way with the opposite sex, and all around personality made him one of the best known and best liked members of his company and his class. No matter what the future may hold in store, those of us who lived, worked, and played with him for four years wish Tony the best of luck and complete success. JOHN MARLOWE TRUESDELL Key West, Florida John, who hails from that tropic island ninety miles north of Cuba and 100 miles from the United States, came to the Academy from Georgia Military Academy and the University of Florida. His greatest thrill since he and Ron Wills were put on report for straggling from McDonough Hall to Mother Bancroft came in June Week of I960. By John ' s valiant efforts the class of ' 63 had the shortest Plebe year in modern Academy history. He placed his cap on the top of the Herndon Monument in the record time of twelve minutes during the " tain ' t no mo ' plebes " ceremony following graduation. While at the Academy John participated in plebe lightweight crew and numerous racquet sports. As the saying goes, " Navy Line is mighty fine " : John plans to serve on Destroyers when he graduates. Fifth Battalion 489 ERIC ALLEN TURNER ScHuate, Massachusetts When Eric came into the gate of the U.S.N. A. for the first time, he was to make a lasting impression because of his athletic ability and his likeable personality. Hailing from Scituate, Mass., Eric had the distinction as a plebe of being the shortest member in the company. However this did not stop him from starting on the plebe soccer and wrestling teams. As an upperclassman " Fireplug, Peter Rabbit, or Animal, " as he was known throughout the Brigade, was a member of the J.V. and varsity wrestling teams. Eric ' s weekends were seldom spent dragging but rather concentrating on how to keep his first place in the whist card playing championships. Eric usually tried to spend part of his leaves in Sweden visiting his relatives and friends. " Fireplug " found his studies well suited for him and consequently had no troubles in standing above average in his class. With these many abilities Eric will be a true attribute to the Fleet. JAMES RICHARD TURNER Dexter, Michigan Jim hails from Dexter, Michigan, by way of University High School. Originally overwhelmed by the Academy because it enrolled nearly twice as many students as his home town had total population, he set out on his career as a Midshipman. With his fine baritone voice, he quickly became a member of the Chapel Choir and the Glee Club. To supplement this, he lent his able talents to the Concert Band via his favorite instru- ment, the baritone horn. Along with his participation in company sports, Jim was a familiar figure as a manager for the " Big Blue " track team. The Public Relations Committee also took up much of his interest. Even with this extracurricular background, Jim has kept a fine academic average throughout his career. With his desire to help out in as many organizations as possible, Jim will be a true asset to whichever service career he chooses. ROBERT LEE VanBUREN Alton, Illinois Beginning with plebe year. Bob showed a readiness to assume extra responsibilities and the ability to handle them well. He served on the Plebe Hop Committee and in later years moved on to the Brigade Hop Committee. On Wednesday night and Sunday morning, he could be found displaying his singing talents as a member of the Catholic Choir. Always an avid believer in good physical condition, he practiced what he preached and his athletic record proves it. On the varsity level, he participated in 150 pound football, and in intramurals, battalion lacrosse and company fieldball. Short in stature but big in spirit and will to win, his keen com- petitive spirit should carry over into his career and make him a fine officer. Bob ' s willingness to help a classmate at any time and his cheerful attitude make him an asset to any organization. 490 Class of 1 963 RAYMOND EDMON VAUGHAN Phoenix, Arizona Ray entered the confines of Mother Bancroft from the Grand Canyon State, Arizona. He was an outstanding athlete and student in the " Good old days " and put these attributes to good use while at U.S.N. A. Many was the night when he would come in from Crew practice dead to the world, but he was never too tired for a round or two with the books. His battle to stay at 150 pounds was Ray ' s main problem while at Navy, and his diets were a thing to behold. The fact that Ray stood among the top of his class in Physical Training is proof of his athletic prowess. His sense of duty and friendly manner have won him many friends among the Brigade, and his enthusiasm and will to work will make him a credit and honor to the Fleet. DON HOLLAND WALTON St. Joseph, Missouri Out of St. Joseph ' s Central High School, Walt came to Annapolis filled with the true college spirit. Apparently the Navy ' s version of college life was not quite what he had expected, but nonetheless ' Walt quickly fell into the routine. Plebe year broke him of his liberalistic Midwestern habits as he developed a genuine sense of belonging. A big car man from the start, ' Walt has a knack of getting the most out of liberty, and yet he has been named to the Sup ' s List several times. On the sports scene, ' Walt participated in batt football and handball and in company football and soccer. The Naval Service will certainly benefit from the addition of this determined individual. ROY DALE WARREN Denver, Colorado Prior to entering the Naval Academy, Roy was a student of Civil Engineering and mathematics at Colorado State University. At the end of his sophomore year, he received an appointment to USNA. ' While at the Academy, Roy ' s name frequently appeared on the Superintendent ' s List. Roy is best known for his competitive spirit and will to win. An avid bridge and sports fan, Roy ' s interest lies in nuclear propulsion for guided missiles and rockets. Fifth Battalion 491 JOSEPH H. WATERFILL, III Louisville, Kentucky After an active high school Hfe, Joe brought his abundant energy, wit, and academic skill to the Academy. Though Joe ' s biggest forte lay in academics, the stars he wore could not outshine his personality. Always active in company and battalion sports, his greatest love was water polo, where he left many an opponent gasping for breath or fighting in vain to block a goal. When not churning across the pool, he could usually be found listening to some jazz, rearranging the room, or both. Joe ' s never ending quest for order and genius for attaining it kept his roommates in constant wonder as to how things would be arranged tomorrow. His ease with academics kept his brain in constant demand to decipher the textbook and translate it to a less gifted classmate. His warm personality, talent for perfection, and ability to get a job done, assure him of a most rewarding career. EDWARD ALOYSIOUS WEATHERS, JR. New Orleans, Louisiana Ed came to the Naval Academy directly after completing four years at Holy Cross High School in New Orleans. Being from the jazz capital of the world, Ed made quite a name for himself as a " swinger. " From the start of youngster year, seldom a weekend went by that Ed wasn ' t dragging. A rugged competitor, Ed spent many afternoons in the fencing loft match- ing skill and stamina against wary opponents. In his spare time Ed con- tributed his talents to the Public Relations Committee and the Chess Club. With his sharp mind and keen sense of humor, Ed will be an asset to whichever station he may be assigned. EDWARD JOSEPH WEAVING, JR. Naugatuck, Connecticut Early in the summer of 1959 a Connecticut Yankee left a carefree life at Cape Cod to come to the Severn and assume the responsibilities of Plebe year. Even with the demands of academics, especially Spa ush, Ed succeeded in amazing everyone by averaging at least twelve ' hours of sleep in a day ' s period. He had a natural ability in athletics and participated in battalion and varsity football and company basketball at the Academy. Besides a natural ability in sports, Ed also had a vast knowledge in this field which proved very helpful to him during Plebe year. His friendly and easygoing nature, which made him a very well liked person at the Academy, will be a great asset to him in all his future undertakings. 492 Class of 1963 ROLAND LEONARD WEIDT Rye, New York In Minneapolis during 1956, Rollie decided upon the Naval Acad- emy as the first step up the long ladder of life. After graduation in Rye, New York, his goal became a reality. Plebe year found him on the rifle team, but the next few years were devoted to racing the Gannet dinghies on the Severn and working up the battalion handball and squash ladders. As an important cog on the Reef Points staff, Rollie served as advertising manager, and later as business manager. He also found time to work on the Public Relations Committee and was elected Secretary of the Trident Society. The most important ideals in Rollie ' s mind are to be well-liked, to live life as it should be lived, and not to simply exist. Whether it be wings of gold, a degree in aeronautical engineering, or both, Rollie plans a Navy career upon graduation. JOHN JOSEPH WERMUTH Wayne, Pennsylvania John entered the Naval Academy after an enjoyable but profitable year at Columbian Prep. After arriving at USNA, he fitted into the routine like an old pro, taking on plebe year with no trouble. John is an avid ocean sailor, having participated in several sailing seasons plus the Annapolis- Newport race. In the off-season he plays end on the company football team. " Little John, " as he is called by his friends, has all of the qualities necessary for becoming a good officer in any branch of the Navy he joins. One of his best is the ability to tell " Sea Stories " upon " Sea Stories " and still make everyone believe them. This knack, combined with his many other excellent capabilities, will see him far up the ranks in years to come. CHESTER GURNETT WHITE, JR. Baltimore, Maryland " Whitey " came to the Academy after four years at Baltimore Poly- technic Institute where he was manager of the football team. He proceeded to continue his trade as manager of Navy ' s 150 pound team. During the off season " Whitey " was a valuable member of the Academy ' s juice gang. Unfortunately, his talents with electricity did not extend to the academic joys of electricity labs. However, being a hi-fi bug, " Whitey " used his abilities to keep his and the rigs of his classmates in top condition. While not a slash, " Whitey " managed to keep his head above water academically and still find time to pursue his hobbies of sailing, listening to his hi-fi, and padding out. An easygoing guy, liked by all, " Whitey " will be a valuable addition to the destroyer men of Uncle Sam ' s Navy. Fifth Battalion 493 PETER ROBERT WHITE Norwalk, Ohio In July, 1959, Peter White entered the Naval Academy as Nor- walk, Ohio ' s envoy. Since this eventful day Pete has been a familiar sight romping around the athletic fields helping his teams to victories in soccer and squash. His main sport is golf, at which he is better than most. If not participating in athletics or showing a visiting team around the yard, Pete could be found in the chapel singing, as he was a stalwart member of the Chapel Choir. One would think that being so active would leave little opportunity for study. Pete seems to have found ample time, since he could be seen walking around the halls with the sign of true academic accomplish- ment above his anchors — stars. In academics, extracurricular activities, wit, and good humor, Pete has shone bright in these past four years. He has given a very good accounting to both the Academy and to Norwalk. ROBERT ALAN WILDMAN Cochituate, Massachusetts Bob came to the Academy from Cochituate, Massachusetts, after one year at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. He comes under the wing of the Blue and Gold rightly, being a Navy junior and the second son to follow the sea after graduation from USNA. His inspired wit eased the tension among classmates and put joy into all his relationships. Intramural sports took up Bob ' s afternoons, while on Sunday morning his voice was blended into the first tenor section of the Antiphonal Choir in the Chapel. Bob is one of those fortunate individuals whose hobby and career choice coincide. Who can forget the familiar phrase " Anybody want to talk Navy Air? " The best of luck. Bob, and happy landings ! EDWARD JAMES WILKINSON, JR. Mansfield, Ohio Skip came to the Academy after spending a year at Marian College in Indianapolis. Skip was a member of the Catholic Choir and has also been a company and battalion representative for the Brigade Honor Com- mittee. While never having played any varsity sport, he is quite a sports fan, and an avid supporter of Navy sports teams. As for participation, his steady preference seems to be battalion football and company fieldball. Probably Skip ' s biggest asset, and the one that has made him so well-liked by all his classmates, is his unfailing sense of humor, and the cheerfulness of his disposition. No matter what the circumstances, he always greets everyone he meets with one of his famous smiles and a cheery word of greeting. He is a fine gentleman and should make a fine officer. 494 Class of 1 963 RICHARD WILKINSON Lynbrook, New York Dick earned his appointment to the Academy while serving as an enlisted man in the Navy. He attended the Naval Preparatory School at Bainbridge, Maryland, prior to entering the Academy. He quickly adjusted to his Plebe and academic year routines and was always ready to give his classmates a helping hand during those trying times. Dick is an avid sports enthusiast, whether playing or watching. His favorite sport is gymnastics, and he earned his numerals in that sport during Plebe year on the flying rings. He played a variety of intramural sports and is known by his team- mates and opponents alike for his good sportsmanship and enthusiasm. Very serious and intent at times, Dick has great powers of concentration. His ready wit and good sense of humor will be of invaluable assistance to him in the Fleet, where it is certain he will make many friends as he has done here at the Academy. MICHAEL VERNON WILLIAMS Seattle, Washington " Willie " hails from Seattle, and to hear him talk, it ' s the greatest place in the world. Although he entered the Academy fresh out of high school, he wasn ' t exactly wet behind the ears. A ladies ' man was " " Will, " and he was always to be found in the throes of a new amor. When it came to academics, he always managed to maintain a respectable average. Sports wise, " Will " was diversified; dabbling in everything from battalion football to company Softball. Working on the reception committee took up most of his extracurricular time. After graduation, " Willie " plans to make tracks down Pensacola way to earn his wings and join the ranks of Navy Air. THOMAS EDWIN WILLIAMS, JR. Norfolk, Virginia Tom has been an outstanding member of the Brigade since his arrival from Bullis Prep. A Marine Junior, Tom has lived in all parts of the world, and experience has lent much to his witty personality and fiery spirit. The Jujce gang, Lucky Bag, and intramural sports of which Tom has participated could not have done without his constant interest and ambition. A frown has never been seen upon his face, especially when dragging a certain sweet young lady who seems to have monopolized every free minute he has to offer. With his solid character and intense desire, he should go far and climb high in his chosen career, the United States Marine Corps. Fifth Battalion 495 JAMES KENT WILLIAMSON Hot Springs, South Dakota A product of South Dakota ' s Black Hills, Jim decided to see the world early. Jim arrived on the Severn with a camera on one shoulder and the ability to sleep anywhere. Jim provided constant amazement for his instructors, who could not figure out how he could pass quizzes with high enough scores to make the Superintendent ' s List, never having heard a word of explanation in the classroom. After classes during plebe and youngster years, Jim could be found in the natatorium as a member of the battalion swimming team. Spring of youngster year saw Jim turn his attentions to the water in the Severn, as he became a member of the ocean sailing squadron. After hours, Jim ' s record collection provided the atmos- phere he needed for his pursuit of sleep. Jim will be remembered for his willingness to help out in any circumstances, especially classmates having academic trouble. RONALD JOSEPH WILLS Newport, Delaware From the fabulous first state of Delaware, Ron Wills of Conrad High came to the Naval Academy. With a good start at the Academy by being in the winning battalion plebe summer, he entered plebe year. One of the youngest members of his class, easygoing Ron participated in com- pany sports, maintained a 3.2 average, and was an ardent supporter of the Navy football team. Outside of pretty girls, he likes playing bridge, basketball, and drums. Although undecided as to his career upon gradua- tion, Ron ' s sense of humor will most assuredly help him to be a success whatever line of the Navy he chooses. GARY WARREN WILSON Binghamton, New York Hailing from the mountains of southern New York, Gary arrived one sunny July morning to greet with open arms the sun-drenched shores of the Severn. Finding the life of a Midshipman very much to his liking, " Peaches, " as he soon became known among his classmates, at once turned his every effort to building the fine record he is leaving behind. The rigors of this unusual way of life had little effect upon the determination and the will to succeed, which he brought with him from Binghamton. Two sum- mer excursions to Europe established " The Peach " as a world traveler, but each September, upon his return to us, he became a common sight upon the fields of intramural soccer. In addition to time spent on the varsity rifle team, Gary furthered political science, his main interest, by a member- ship in the Naval Academy Foreign Relations Club. This warm and likeable guy is sure to become one of the finest Naval Aviators in the service. 496 Class of 1 963 WILLIS CHARLES WILSON Sharpsville, Pennsylvania Bill entered the Naval Academy right out of high school from the mountains of Pennsylvania. Primarily interested in sports and physical education, Bill participated in a great number of athletic activities. While having a strong will to win, Bill was a little low in the weight depart- ment, so he played varsity 150 football, and was very successful in that endeavor. With his highly competitive spirit. Bill rounded out his sports by wrestling during the Winter. He had a little trouble with academics, but still found time to participate in the activities of the Naval Academy Christian Association and the Italian Club. WILLIA M ROBERT WITCRAFT De Soto, Wisconsin Bill came to the Academy from Bettendorf, Iowa, but now claims Wisconsin as his home. In high school Bill spent his fall days on the foot- ball field. A portion of his spare time was consumed on the tennis courts, a pastime he still pursues. Right after he arrived, Bill dug right into the academics and after two years of outwitting the other side of Maryland Avenue, he attained a high scholastic level. Besides studies. Bill also found time for the Naval Academy Christian Association and the Spanish Club. An outstanding runner for the company cross-country team he also played fieldball and Softball. His hobbies included fishing and hunting (girls, that is), and to these he devoted a major part of his leaves from U.S.N.A. His scholastic ability and determination should make him a top career officer. MALCOLM STURTEVANT WRIGHT East Orange, New Jersey The best description of this native New Jerseyite is to call him an all around Midshipman. Academic-wise, he has consistently demonstrated above average ability by maintaining a Superintendent ' s List average throughout his stay at USNA. Paralleling this academic ability is the athletic prowess demonstrated by Mai in the Physical Education Depart- ment and on the intramural field. His competitive spirit and excellent sportsmanship both on and off the field have made him a credit to his company and, even more important, to the Academy. The esteem with which Mai ' s classmates hold him is shown by the fact that he was elected to the Honor Committee. This distinction is a clear vote of confidence in his leadership ability. This attribute, coupled with his ability to make warm and lasting friendships, will stand Mai in good stead throughout his Naval career. Fifth Battalion 497 ROBERT PAUL ABATE Bronx-New York City, New York Bob hails from that little known part of New York City called the Bronx. Coming in right out of Manhattan Prep High School, he quickly discovered the notable differences between left and right, port and starboard and the numerous other nautical terms still unknown to Webster. His favorite pastimes are girls and sports. This is evidenced by his active participation in varsity, battalion and company track and cross-country along with handball. He also was Battalion Sports Representative for the LOG. Not one to be a social boor, Bob ' s also been connected with the Newman, Spanish, Foreign Relations and Photo Clubs while at the Academy. Upon graduation he has set many goals, the first of which will be to earn those coveted Wings of Gold. Whatever the future, we know that with his easy-going manner and friendly ways. Bob cannot help but meet success. PHILIP ALBIN ADAMS Baltimore, Maryland Coming straight to USNA from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, Phil soon proved himself to be no mean hand with the books and slide rule, and his athletic prowess is well attested by his years with the Varsity Fencing Squad. Always quiet and softspoken, his ready smile and generous personality made him one of the most popular members of the Brigade — no less with the fairer sex than with his classmates. His personal integrity, friendliness, and intelligence have won him many friends and made him a credit to the Brigade; these qualities will continue to do so throughout his life. Baltimore and the Navy can well be proud of Phil. JOHN WARREN ALFORD Short Hills, New Jersey Upon graduation from high school in Short Hills, New Jersey, Warren spent two fruitful years at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Wor- cester, Massachusetts, before coming to the Naval Academy. While at Worcester he was a physics major and a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity. As a physics major at the Academy he was a pioneer in the validation program and was one of the few in his class to graduate with a major in addition to the regular Science degree. Warren ' s extracurricular activities were quite varied. He spent many hours on the WRNV concert series and was an avid attender of the Science and Mathematics seminars. He was in a field of his own during the spring and fall when he could be found sailing dinghies every afternoon and the yawls on the weekends. Through his unflagging zeal in every Navy cause, he will be a fine credit to the Navy and to his country in future years. 500 Class of 1963 GEORGE RODDICK ALLEN New Orleans, Louisiana Rod is an easy going rebel who came to the Academy with an insatiable appetite for sleep, food, and practical jokes. His many activities as secretary of the Brigade Activities Committee, the Ocean Sailing Race Committee, and the W3ADO Radio Club would have crushed a lesser man. Rod found ample time to drag and compile record amounts of pad time. Studies never presented a problem to Rod; his grades seemed to prove that his method of studying by osmosis was effective. He always took an active part in sports, lending his talents to the rifle and company cross country teams in the winter and sailing in the fall and spring. In his years at the Academy, Rod made numerous friends and a record which leaves no doubt that the Navy will be gaining a very fine and capable officer upon his graduation. JOHN WARREN ALMOND, JR. Los Angeles, California Young Jack is numbered among the alumni of NAPS and entered the Navy originally from his natural environs, the sovereign state of California. The nickname by which he is most widely known is " Fish " the derivation of which rests ostensibly in his swimming and skin diving abilities. Fish ' s signal contribution to Academy life is musical ability. Officially he sings bass in the anti phonal choir; unofficially he flails away, rather respectably and to the delight of all within range, on the bongo drums. Fish also numbers among his accomplishments a year with the ocean sailing squadron and four years to the battalion handball team. Fish ' s verve, spirit, and humor promise to make him a man respected and an officer of note. RICHARD EARL ANDREWS Baldwin, New York Following graduation from Baldwin High School, Dick headed straight for USNA to trade civilian line for the Navy Blue. After classes one could find Dick in the wrestling loft with the varsity squad or on the Softball diamond, but his favorite sport was dragging one of his many " one and onlies " . Academics came easy for Dick as evidenced by his con- sistent Superintendent ' s List marks. Youngster cruise found Dick alongside his twin brother on the EAGLE, training ship for the Coast Guard Academy. Being one for concentrated effort, Dick never wasted his time, most especially his liberty time. Dick ' s friendly smile and amiable character made him many friends during his sojourn at USNA. These attributes, plus his ability to apply himself to the problem at hand will make him a successful officer and an asset to the Navy. Sixth Battalion 501 JOHN WILSON ASHER, III Denton, Maryland " Ash " , who hails from the land of pleasant living on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, came to the Academy after two years at the Hill School. Consequently, Academics came easy. Although his main interests lay in varsity baseball and his girl, he still found time enough to participate in WRNV, the German club, the Foreign Relations Club, and on the Reception Committee. During his somewhat limited spare time, John has cultivated a highly discriminatory taste for " Rock and Roll " a la Stereo. He claimed that sounds help him think. John has gleaned from his avid participa- tion 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. DAVID ARTHUR BAKER Logansport, Indiana This fair haired lad came to USNA by way of Logansport, Indiana, and the University of Mississippi. Although a Yankee he quickly adapted himself to southern living. At " Ole Miss " he found himself surrounded by lovely women but still found time to study a little engineering. At the Academy Dave has continued his interests in both fields. Dave came to the Academy advanced in both academics and Navy life. His year in college was spent on a Naval ROTC scholarship. He was then able to validate the basic curriculum and take advanced courses in engineering with hopes of a major. Despite his heavy academic schedule, Dave also found time to be active in sports at the Academy. Plebe year found him a member of the plebe soccer team. Later, he could be seen on the field playing for company and battalion teams. Known for his drive and determination, Dave will make a fine officer. WAYNE COOPER BARLOW Atlanta, Georgia Buzz came to us from the deep southern state of Georgia. A truly devoted southerner, he considers " Marching Through Georgia " to be in the very worst of taste. After high school, Buzz joined the enlisted ranks of the Army, and after four months, he enrolled at the Military Academy Prep School. A year later we found Buzz a " Ploob " at USNA — a loss for Army, but a real score for Navy. During his four years at Navy, Buzz became a real favorite both of his classmates and of the underclass. Besides battling with Yankees, Buzz found time to join the Foreign Rela- tions Club, sail on the Royono, and swim on both the plebe and battalion teams. At graduation Buzz has set his sights on the wings of Navy Air. The Academy and the Service both have a right to be proud of this fine future aviator. 502 Class of 1 963 JAMES RANDALL BARNUM Lufkin, Texas A true son of the South, Texas variety, Pete was always ready to champion the cause of his beloved South and the " Lone Star " state, when the " Eternal War " was mentioned. After spending a year as a Texas A M " Aggie " , Pete came to USNA for another plebe year, which made some inclined to believe that Mid ' n Barnum, 4 c would get his first com- mand in the ED squad, by the seniority rule. Not only ready to help anyone with academic problems, but also ready to join in any form of merry mak- ing, Pete has done much to adequately represent his " Great " state here at Navy. Pete ' s ability to get along with people will make him a welcome shipmate, and no matter what service career he chooses even if it is the Texas Rangers, he is sure to prove to be a valuable asset. BART HILL BARTLETT Louisville, Kentucky The Coast Guard Academy ' s loss was the Navy ' s gain when " Black Bart " came to USNA. The fact that he would have to face still another plebe year didn ' t deter him at all. He can proudly claim to be one of the very few who underwent the ordeals of two years of " bracing up " . Bart hails from Kentucky, and a finer representative of the Blue Grass State can ' t be found. His quick wit and excellent guitar playing made him a favorite among his classmates, his juniors, and his seniors. Besides battling with the academic, departments, Bart found time to be a staff writer for the Log, sing in the Chapel Choir, and to excel at intramural cross-country, volleyball, and 150 pound football. The Naval Service couldn ' t ask for a finer officer, nor the Academy for a finer representative. THOMAS J. BATZEL Phoenixville, Pennsylvania Tom, who hails from Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, stopped at the Naval Academy Prep School on his way to the Academy. At NAPS he was a standout in both lacrosse and football, the latter being his main interest at the Academy aside from his girls. His love of Football gave him the will to make weight and play for Navy ' s 150 pound football team. His outstanding ability and hustle earned him an " N-star " youngster year, an admirable feat in anyone ' s book. Tom ' s athletic success at the Academy has been matched by his academic success which has resulted in a steadily increasing class standing. His likable personality and leadership qualities have earned him the respect of his classmates. His character and past record bear witness on the success he ' ll enjoy as an officer. Sixth Battalion 503 NOEL CHURCH BING Tenafly, New Jersey Bingo, a good natured, easy going guy from North Jersey, came to the Academy from Tenafly High School where he was one of the top trackmen in the school. He continued his career in track at Navy and helped to win many meets. Besides selling Christmas wreaths our " Moon Man " allocates much of his time to the twist, the Everly Brothers, and sleep. But he was always at his best at a party, and there are many that he will never forget. His personality has enabled him to make many friends, and it will ensure him success in the years to come. MICHAEL ROBERT BONSIGNORE Buffalo, New York Mike, an Army brat, is easily described, for he possesses the qualities which people are apt to note on a first meeting. Seldom without an opinion to voice, Mike has been an influential factor in the settling of many com- pany affairs. Always with a smile and cheerful greeting, Bon has also been a morale booster during those frequent periods of depression. Known as the international lover of the Brigade, Mike has wooed the women from Venezuela to Germany. Being an avid skindiver, Mike ' s time in Venezuela was spent exploring the terrain of the tepid waters of the Caribbean. Bon, displaying the same qualities on the playing field as in the hall, has always been a mainstay in whatever he participates. Mike is undoubtedly destined for a successful career in whichever service he chooses. WILLIAM EVANS BRADFORD Alamo Heights, Texas Bill is an " army brat " who is convinced that the Navy is the only way. Hailing from Alamo Heights, Texas, he came straight to the Academy from high school. Bill ' s record at the Academy both academic and athletic has been outstanding. He is a defensive linesman on the 150 pound football team and is no stranger to the Superintendent ' s List. Very active in many Academy extra-curricular activities such as the O.C.U. and Foreign Relations Club, Bill still finds time to study his favorite subject, the Far East. Known for his smile and pleasant manner. Bill ' s initiative and drive will carry him a long way in his naval career. 504 Class of 1 963 THOMAS KERGAN BRANDT Newport, Rhode Island Tom arrived at USNA from Colombian Prep School with high hopes to play football for the Big Blue. A knee injury Plebe year confined his athletic ability to battalion and company sports, where his efforts were greatly appreciated. Late lights and early reveilles were a boon to T.K. ! His academic by-word " late to bed, early to rise, brings me more than shaky two-fives, " in addition to assisting him through daily bouts with the books and profs, gave some ambulant OD ' s a target for their early morning strolls. Weekends provided Tom with time for operation in his favorite medium. He could be found at almost any activity accompanied by a drag. His genuine sense of humor paved the way for a good time at any party. One need only look at T.K. ' s locker door to know his service choice upon graduation. A flyer, through and through, he sets his sights on Pensacola and a career in Naval Aviation. HAROLD ANTHONY BREARD, JR. Monroe, Louisiana A true rebel and a staunch defender of his bayou state, Tony came directly to USNA upon graduation from Neville High School in Monroe. Although academics were never a serious problem, Tony ' s major assets were his southern culture, friendly smile, quick wit and pleasant attitude. His interest and desire in athletics aided him in ex-celling in company sports. When the going was tough, he would be right in there giving it the old Navy try. When not engaged in studies, athletics, or dragging, Tony could be found giving freely of his time and musical talents to the Drum and Bugle Corps — • and to the Brigade of Midshipmen. On Sunday evenings, Tony ' s interests were absorbed by the Newman Club. An asset to the Brigade, sure to be a success in his military career, Tony will long be remembered by the many friends and acquaintances he cultivated while at USNA. THOMAS DANIEL BUCKLEY Washington, D. C. Buck has lived his entire life in the Nation ' s Capital and entered Catholic University after high school. His much desired appointment came after one year there and his long ambition was fulfilled when he entered the Plebe class. Buck amazed quite a few people with his fantastic knowledge of ships and planes and many people think he helped write Jane ' s Fighting Ships. Ironically, Buck has a great aversion to swimming and he believes that only ships and fish belong in the water. More pleasing to his taste is the sound of a fast car with plenty of power. He never really lost the hot rod spirit he had before he entered. Football is Buck ' s favo rite sport, and he played a lot of company ball during the winter. Buck wants to be a career man, and the Naval Service will benefit greatly by his enthusiasm and ability. Sixth Battalion 505 STEPHEN MEREDITH BUESCHER Burlington, Iowa Steve, known by his classmates as " Stev-O " brought with him an outstanding record from both high school and his one year at Wentworth Military Academy. As an athlete he contributed to the mighty power of Navy ' s swimming team, and as a student he stood high in the class of ' 63. Although he was never one to turn down a drag for some important event in the Yard, Steve managed to keep up a steady correspondence with a certain someone back in his native Iowa during his four years at USNA. Steve spends much of his free time studying the past and future history of our submarine fleet and upon graduation, hopes to continue his career on board one of the Navy ' s nuclear submarines. MELVIN LEROY BUNNELL Stephenville, Texas A native of Stephenville, Mel spent twelve years in Stephenville schools preparing for the Naval Academy. Just to make sure he was ready for USNA he also spent two years at Tarleton State College. With true professional desire Mel was active in the YP Squadron. Athletically, he devoted his time to furthering his company ' s standing in the intramural sports competition. When he takes time out from his busy schedule to relax, Mel can be found listening to country music and catching up on the latest political situation. He is looking forward to a career in Naval Aviation, but no matter what his choice of service, he will be a valuable asset to his country. JOHN PATRICK BURKE San Bernardino, California Jack came to us upon graduation from high school. He never has had any trouble with the academics and wa on the Superintendent ' s list consistently. He was always the person that everyone ran to when a difficult problem came up. Jack was never the indoor type and excelled in his favorite sports of squash and tennis. Although we would try to fool you into thinking he was the quiet type, he was really the life of the party. Weekends found Jack spending most of his time either dragging or finding some other entertainment. The fairer sex have never been a major problem to him as shown by the abundance of mail he always received. His easy- going personality and hard working manner will make him a valuable asset to the Naval Service. 506 Class of 1963 FRANCIS WAYNE BUTLER Mount Pleasant, South Carolina Wayne came to the Naval Academy via the Navy and NAPS. Before enlisting he attended Moultrie High School in Charlestown, South Carolina, where he lettered in football. He comes from a first rate Navy family and is well adapted to the naval profession. Not being an academic slash makes it necessary for him to spend a considerable part of his time with the books. His strong points are in the social science fields. Besides playing battalion and company sports at the Academy, Wayne spends his leisure time reading, which accounts for his keen knowledge of the Navy and current events. Although he is a southern boy he enjoys the far North, preferably Canada, where a sweet little someone makes her home. BRIAN FREDERICK CAMPBELL South Orange, New Jersey Born in East Orange, New Jersey, Brian lived in South Orange the greater part of his life. Before coming to the Academy he attended Saint Peter ' s College in Jersey City for two years, where he was a pre- engineering student. His appointment to the Academy was Congressional, and he entered in July of 1959 along with 1200 other eager Plebes. While at the Academy he became . interested in the advertising field and is now on the local advertising staff of the LOG. He is also a member of the Newman Club and the Photography Club. Upon graduation he is looking forward to a career in Navy Line. LAWRENCE ADAMS CARPENTER Schenectady, New York Coming to the Academy from Naval Prep, Larry adjusted well to Academy discipline. Realizing the opportunities offered by the Academy, Larry became very active in both extracurricular activities and sports. His vocal ability in the choir and Glee Club afforded many weekend trips, including the Miss America Pageant. His interest in sports was felt in both varsity crew and dinghy sailing. He also made many friends both at the Academy and for the Academy, greeting Navy opponents as a member of the Reception Committee. Larry ' s pleasant attitude, his interest in outside activities, and his devotion to his duties and responsibilities indicate that he will find a service career both entertaining and rewarding. Sixth Battalion 507 JOHN CASTRO Brooklyn, New York John came to the Academy after completing a year of college at the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn. His college background gave " Fidel " a head start in academics, and enabled him to get stars and take advantage of the privileges of the Superintendent ' s List quite often. An active com- petitor in sports " Fidel " was on the Plebe wrestling team and also partici- pated in company Softball and soccer. What remaining time " Fidel " had he devoted to the Spanish club. Taking advantage of the validation program, " Fidel " is fortunate to graduate with a science and Spanish major. With this background " Fidel " is looking forward to a successful and rewarding career in the Navy. JOHN BRUCE CHRISTIE, II Clarksburg, West Virginia Johnnie hails from the hills of West Virginia and hasn ' t let anyone forget it. USNA hasn ' t interrupted his carefree manner in the least, although it did interrupt his social life somewhat. Plebe year found the " Mighty Mite " a member of the plebe cross country and track squads. He has spent his winters displaying his prowess on the basketball court. He also has distinguished himself on the volleyball coutts as an avid com- petitor. At the same time Johnnie has proven that you don ' t have to be a giant to excel. His talents do not stop here either, as he has been found spending much time singing in the Chapel Choir and Glee Club. The Naval Academy ' s loss should prove to be the outside world ' s gain in his chosen career. JOSEPH BRANDON CLANCY Urbana, Illinois Joe arrived at USNA directly from high school. During his tour of duty at the Academy, he could be found every other Sunday evening with the Newman Club. Although extremely well-adapted for athletics, Joe ' s interests seemed to lean toward debating. Aside from debate, Joe concentrated mainly on Battalion soccer, boxing and wrestling. Reception Committee and 1963 Ring and Crest Committee duties took up what spare time he had remaining. Those who know Joe will agree that he is cut out for the military and couldn ' t have done better anywhere else. They would also agree that his honesty and determination will facilitate his success in any field he chooses. Joe will always remember and be remembered by the friendships that he made and the good times that he had during his four years by the Severn. 508 Class of 1 963 WAYNE ALAN CLARKE San Diego, California Wayne Alan Clarke was born in Ancon, Canal Zone, spending the first five years of his life outside the United States.

Ben can be counted on when needed and he possesses a cool head under pressure. His favorite course was Bull and he has a special liking for foreign policy and govern- ment. His favorite saying of " Don ' t sweat it " was quite evident in the fact that he could be found dragging his OAO most every weekend. Ben plans a Naval career following graduation. JOSEPH STANISLAUS COLLINS Boston, Massachusetts Joe came to the Academy from the land of broad " a ' s " , Boston. Generally, academics were not the easiest thing for Joe to manage; he had to study. Joe ' s outstanding ability is in the field of debating, or perhaps just plain arguing. No topic is too trivial nor no person too insignificant to receive the benefits of a lengthy discussion. In the sports field, Joe helped many a company team. He believes in the old axiom which states that if you can ' t play a sport, be one. Nowhere will you find a more avid team supporter than Joe. A calm person, Joe was never one to rush. He woke up slow, ate even slower, and almost crawled to classes. Fortunate is the service, it can count on a calm, collected Joe for many years. Sixth Battalion I f09 JOHN FRANCIS COOK Apalachicola, Florida Hailing from the quaint little town of Apalachicola, Florida, Frank is the typical easygoing Southerner. " Cookie, " who quite often found himself on the Supt. ' s List, was always a good ' bet for explaining a tough skinny problem. Three years in the fleet prior to joining the class of ' 63 gave Frank a good start on plebe year, and he proved invaluable as a source of reference for his classmates. Frank took an active part in company sports during his afternoons. This man of few words and slow anger was truly a credit to the Brigade and rightfully deserved their respect and admiration. RICHARD ALBERT CUNEO Brooklyn, New York A typical Brooklynite, characterized by his quick wit and good sense of humor, Dick took the Naval Academy right in stride. He was well prepared for the Academy, spending one year at the University of Detroit. After having an uneventful season on the Plebe baseball team, Dick ' s aggressiveness and ability finally manifested itself youngster year and he won his " N-star. " Not one to settle with any one girl, his big problem was his choice of drags for the weekends. With his warm personality, leadership, and athletic abilities, Dick meets all the qualifications of an outstanding officer and gentleman and will be an asset to his country no matter what he does. SHAUN MICHAEL DAUGHERTY Paoli, Indiana Mike, known to all of his friends as " Doc, " came to the Naval Academy from NAPS. Prior to his decision to join the Navy, Mike attended General Motors Institute, which has assuredly left its mark on him. He is known as a general repairman, able to make anything run. Mike was captain of his plebe fencing team, and continued his success on the varsity level. He is also an avid fisherman. Most weekends you might see him walking along by the river with his pole and a good size string of fish. We know that Mike ' s varied background and interests will make him a valuable asset to the Navy. 510 Class of 1 963 WILLIAM DOUGLAS DAVIDSON Kershaw, South Carolina Doug came to Annapolis from the deep South via Severn School. Undaunted by the trials and tribulations of Plebe year, he succeeded in maintaining his cheerful and friendly nature. Above average in all respects, he always set an outstanding example. His many extracurricular activities included the Forensic Society, Reception Committee, and the Brigade Ac- tivities Committee. In sports he gave a good account of himself on the Battalion Boxing team. In spite of being a good student, Doug and the academic departments had their differences, but he always managed to dominate the situation. A party boy at heart, Doug will always carry with him fond memories of those welcome leaves. In the future, wherever it leads him, he can be certain of success. JAMES MYRON DeFRANCIA Denver, Colorado This native of Colorado turned his back on the nearby Air Force Academy in preference to the sunny shores of the Severn. Jim ' s only regret was that Navy did not have a skiing team where he would have been able to put to use his skills on the snowy slopes. His only contact with snow at Navy was during his spare moments when he concentrated on charming the fair sex. Jim also spent much of his free time acting with the Mas- queraders, displaying his talents in each performance. " DeFinkia " had a flair for the Liberal Arts portion of the curriculum, so much so that he enrolled in numerous elective courses to further his aim of gaining a major in Social Science. His classmates and many friends wish him smooth sailing as he embarks on a career in Nuclear Submarines. CHARLES CARLO Di BARI Oakland, California Chuck spent two years at the University of California at Berkeley studying liberal arts before coming to the Naval Academy. During the three years that he spent in the Naval Reserve, he became interested in the Academy, and he received a competitive appointment from the Secretary of the Navy. Chuck ' s beaming smile and easygoing temperament are well known to all of the dedicated sourpusses in the Brigade. At the Academy he actively participated in company sports and in the Italian Club, which will be sad to lose its favorite comedian. Chuck ' s perseverance towards a problem and his good humor expressed in an easygoing smile make for fine officer material. We wish him luck in the future. Sixth Battalion 511 DONALD JOHN DUELFER East Greenville, Pennsylvania Don was the only person to come to USNA from his hometown. He was active in Crew and Track during his plebe year. Varsity Crew, the Foreign Relations Club and the LOG filled his spare time during the succeeding three years. The Science Department proved to be his major foe throughout the four year course, though at times the Math Department pressed hard for this honor. Youngster cruise found him sunbathing on the catwalk of the U.S.S. INDEPENDENCE and visiting many foreign ports such as Norfolk, Virginia. He was one of the few lucky Mids to go through fire fighting school twice. Barring accidents and with the consent of the flight surgeon, Don hopes to earn the Navy ' s " Wings of Gold. " WILLIAM RICHARD DUKES Toledo, Ohio Born in Detroit, Michigan, in August 1940, Bill lived there for eight years before moving to Toledo, Ohio, where he finished grade school and high school.

After a year at the Naval Academy Prep School at Bainbridge, Maryland, Bob became a Midshipman during the summer of 1959. While at Navy, Bob has employed his talents in many ways, such as upholding a consistent 3.1 average in academics and showing a fierce determination and drive on the athletic field. He has channeled his efforts to sundry activities from political science to dragging lovely girls from the surrounding big cities. His motto, " Nothing in excess and everything in moderation " has earned for Bob the respect of his fellow classmates at the Academy and the admiration of his family and friends in Grenola, Kansas. 512 Class of 1 963 LEONARD MIDDLETON EATON Yonkers, New York Len came to USNA after graduating from Roosevelt High School in Yonkers, New York. Although studies came hard to Len, he was not one to lag behind and through sheer perseverance surmounted his academic obstacles. An energetic sportsman, Len found his outlets in the form of battalion football, along with heavyweight touch football, cross- country, and knockabout sailing on the company level. He always looked forward to those periods of leave when he could hop in that little red sportscar and head for the nearest tavern. His cheerfulness and ability to work hard will stand him in good stead. The Naval Service has gained a fine officer and all-around gentleman. DAVID JAMES EBERT Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Dave came to the shores of the Severn from home and high school in Pittsburgh. During his stay at USNA he was active in sports and in Brigade and company activities. Like all of us, though, a good bit of Dave ' s time was taken up by the academic departments. During his first two years at Navy, Dave clashed violently with the Department of Foreign Languages. He emerged victorious at the end of Youngster year, happy in his knowledge that a foreign language is only a two year requirement at the Academy. Once he was away from the books, Dave could always be counted on to join any practical joke session or chow-seeking expedition. We wish this popular member of the Class of ' 63 the best of everything in the future. RICHARD WILLIAM ELSWORTH Yeadon, Pennsylvania Dick came to the Academy from Yeadon, Pennsylvania. He studied for two years at West Chester State College before coming to Navy. During plebe year the Engineering and Science Departments were stumbling blocks.

He was active in the Brigade Art Club where he printed the posters distributed through the yard prior to football games. His other major extracurricular interest was the Naval Academy Christian Association. Most of Dick ' s sports interests centered on running cross- country and playing fieldball. Swimming in the Natatorium was another favorite pastime in the afternoon. He also took a professional interest in the YP Squadron. Dick leaves USNA looking forward to his future as an officer in our armed services. Sixth Battalion 513 GEORGE WILLIAMS EMERY Springvale, Maine George, coming to Navy via the northern route, hails from Sanford High School.

Reed belongs to the Spanish Club, the Foreign Relations Club, The Public Relations Committee, and the Trident Magazine Staff. Between weekends he manages to spend a great deal of time on these activities. For sports, he has fenced, played soccer, and played handball.

Reed ' s interest in so many fields and his diversified talents will most certainly make him an officer of merit and a credit to the service. DALE MORTON FISHER Reinholds, Pennsylvania " To instill the highest ideals of duty, honor, and loyalty. " That Is the mission of the Naval Academy, and Dale has taken that goal to heart. Since his very first days here at USNA he has worked diligently with boundless zeal and energy for the day when he could at last fulfill a long-awaited dream and join the officer corps of our nation ' s proudest service and the world ' s finest navy. Dale always has a smile for everyone and, contrary to the popular axiom, will volunteer his services for almost any worthwhile task. Soon after graduation wedding bells will chime for Dale and a certain OAO who will be a great help to " Fish " in his career. Whatever specialty he chooses the fleet will be receiving an officer who will be a credit to both himself and the naval service. 514 Class of 1 963 JAMES DAVID FONTANA Detroit, Michigan Rowing his way to Annapolis after two years at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, Jim has made his mark as well as his splash here. As a member of the undefeated Plebe crew, Jim went on to finish fourth in the Olympic Trials behind our own varsity crew. Since then, Jim has never been out of the first boat — winning his N in his youngster year. He has been company honor representative for three years. In the midst of all his rowing, he has found time to take part in the " N " and Newman Clubs and become an ofttime member of the Superin- tendent ' s list. The future shows great promise for the " red-head. " With his sense of responsibility, loyalty, and proven capabilities of leadership, Jim should easily reach any goal he sets for himself. JOEL RULAND GARDNER Pensacola, Florida Joe hails from Pensacola in Florida, the land of sunshine. He came to USNA by way of Columbia Prep. Believing that all work and no play makes Joe a dull boy, he actively participated in company sports while at Navy. When not in the " dago " building studying Russian or Chinese he fulfilled his desire to get in the public eye by making good use of his talents as a ham in the Masqueraders productions. Joe ' s grades varied from good to better depending on the relationship between pad time and study time. Joe has a calm, commanding presence that should make him a success in whatever he does. ROBERT GREGORY GIDDENS, JR. Norfolk, Virginia Bob, a Navy junior, came to the Academy directly from high school in Jacksonville, Florida. His familiarity with Navy life and his " thirteen chins " brought him through a rough plebe year with a smile. He was an outstanding member of the chess club, a cheerleader for three years, and an N-star winner on Navy ' s championship gymnastics team. An ex- cellent example of his strong will to succeed was when he tumbled against Army ' s gym team with a dislocated left arm taped to his side. His points helped the team to a 481 2-471 2 victory over Army for the first time in thirteen years. Academics, as well as athletics, suited Bob ' s eagerness. He took extra courses in mathematics and physics for three years to prepare himself for post graduate studies. His keen mind will be a great asset to today ' s highly technical Navy. Sixth Battalion 515 GEORGE WALTER GOTTLIEB La Grange, Illinois George, our organization man, has been a Navy prospect since birth, as he believes in " A place for everything and everything in its place. " In spite of his classmates ' comments, George ' s systems have displayed their value through his consistent Superintendent ' s List grades. George had been an exceptional athlete throughout high school and he has continued his abilities here at USNA in football and in intramural sports. George takes a great interest in every new idea he encounters. This is demonstrated in his acceptance of the theory that you must meet one hundred girls before finding that certain one. Only George could postulate such a basic need. His enthusiasm and natural talent will make George an outstanding addition to the service. JOHN WITHERSPOON GOWENS, II Amarillo, Texas Coming straight to the Naval Academy from the biggest state in the southwest, John ' s smile and sincerity have won him many friends at the Naval Academy. An active participant in intramural softball and light- weight touch football, he can often be seen playing hard on Hospital Point. Academics came easy for John, as evidenced by his excellent average and numerous overloads. Post graduate work seems to be in the making some- where in the future, and ability plus determination should bring him success in this area. The science and math seminar took up many Friday evenings while Saturday nights were reserved for studying or dragging. Dragging no one in particular at USNA seemed to be John ' s style, but there was always that one girl back home to think about. Quiet but friendly, John won the respect of all those who knew him. A bright future in any career he chooses to follow will be in store for him. BERNARD GRABOWSKI Riverside, New Jersey ...■ ,; .- Bernie, or Grabo, left Riverside, New Jersey, for Annapolis via Bullis Prep School where he was more than successful in academics and athletics. From the beginning of Plebe year, Grabo has possessed the admiration of his classmates, coaches, and profs for his perseverance and determination to conquer any obstacle whether it be in a book, on the playing field, or on the dance floor. Bernie could always be relied on to have a kiobasi or some other sort of Polish delicacy hidden away. He participated actively in intramural sports where his ability and enthusiasm brought him great success in football and boxing. Bernie ' s feelings towards Second Class Aviation Summer were all wrapped up in a small paper bag. His personality and pleasing sense of humor has enabled him to make friends throughout the Brigade. He will be a great asset to the Service and a person well worth being able to call a friend. 516 Class of 1963 DONALD EDD GRANT Arlington, Virginia Sailing in from Washington-Lee High where he built his first cyclotron as a junior, Don soon mastered the stormy seas of Plebe year and entered the balmy swells of upperdass life. A member of the Brigade ' s first validation program, Don ' s stars were a symbol of his academic success. Although interested in most everything, his pet and major lay in the field of nuclear physics. One of the more active members of the Brigade, Don soon found many extra-curricular activities to offset his heavy academic program. Fondly remembered for his orange and white parachute and " Now in Airborne . . ., " he wore his wings with pride. The YP squadron, too, found a devoted hand in his person. Sports-wise he led many a com- pany cross country team to victory, and to top the week off he taught Sunday school in an Annapolis parish. A friend to all and an able companion, the Naval Service is fortunate in claiming a fine officer. GEORGE WILLIAM GRAVES, JR. Frankfort, Indiana A year at Purdue University and active duty in the fleet have seasoned this " Hoosier " prior to his entrance to the Academy via NAPS. Bill ' s experience and knowledge immediately made him a leader among his classmates, and he acquired his lasting friendships just as quickly through his character, personality, and sense of humor. A scrappy boxer, he was hampered by an injury, and his athletic endeavors were channeled into company and battalion sports, where he was a keen competitor. Bill, a great friend in need, will be remembered along with his more serious achieve- ments for the running of his less-salty classmates and his resourcefulness and ingenuity at humorous diversions. His quick wit and easy manner will allow Bill to make a smooth transition into Naval Aviation. JAMES RUSSELL HALL Boulder, Colorado Jim came to the Academy by way of the University of Minnesota where he was majoring in organic chemistry. He took advantage of his previous college experience by enrolling in the validation program. This permitted him to progress rapidly to a major in mathematics, a field in which he is remarkably adept. While Jim is an outstanding student, he is not lacking in any of the other areas of achievement. He has made his talents felt from the field of sports to leadership and personal integrity. It ' s true he works hard, but, as he learned at the University of Minnesota, when appropriate, he plays equally hard. All in all Jim is an outstanding example of the well rounded character this institution strives to develop. Whatever his branch of service his presence and contributions will be noted. Sixth Battalion 517 WILLIAM JOHN HAMILTON New Orleans, Louisiana Bill is the cosmopolitan of ' 63. He has graced the cities of Havana, Chicago, Miami, Washington, and New Orleans with his presence. Before coming to USNA, Bill attended Tulane University as an ROTC. This gave Bill the opportunity to validate many of his Plebe year courses and work toward a major in a subject not in the basic curriculum. Being quite versatile, Bill ' s interests have varied from YP Squadron to sleeping, from the BAG to sleeping, and last but not least sleeping while listening to " country music. " Be it Madison Avenue Line or Navy Air, Bill should be of real value to his classmates and to the service. CARL KRISTEN HANSEN Hackensack, New Jersey After spending a year at the University of Denver, Carl decided to join the Navy and become a " missileman.

" immediately set out on a program including varsity soccer. Public Relations Club, Antiphonal Choir, and as the Masqueraders ' Publicity Director. But alas, he found himself marching with us on occasion nevertheless.

' s " interest and friendly manner will enable him to become a valuable addition to the service. THEODORE JOHN HEALY Hollywood, California T.J. came to USNA after spending a number of years pursuing various interests along both the East and West coasts.

T.J. ' s congenial personality has given vent to many mirthful times for all of us. Athletic endeavors for T.J. were definitely not inherent, but his persistent efforts to attain physical fitness led him through many hours ot rowing the Severn from a low seat on the varsity crew team. After years of leaving blank the " Extracurricular Activities " column, he finally joined the Foreign Re- lations Club. Such an aware and talented person as Ted will prove that his is the type individual required by the Navy of today. 518 Class of 1 963 ROBERT GARY HECHT Clairton, Pennsylvania Bob came to USNA via Bullis Prep, following graduation from Clairton High School. From that day on Bob quickly gained the admiration of his classmates who could always count on a smile and a pleasant greeting. After a successful high school football career.

During the out-of-season Bob added his athletic prowess to the company intramural sports program, basketball being his favorite. Academics proved no exception to Bob ' s fine record, as his sharp wit always managed to keep him well above that immortal 2.5. Always having time for a little recreation, Bob ' s favorite pastimes were listening to records, dancing, or dragging on weekends. With such an admirable Academy career, it must be that Bob will certainly be an asset to our Armed Forces following June graduation.

" Dud ' s " fine qualities have made quite a name for him here at USNA. The spring- time finds him darting around the lacrosse field flipping in goals, while the rest of the year gives him ample time to serve his accumulated extra duty. Studies were never a major problem to " Dud " , nor were finding ways to have a good time. Living around Annapolis had provided him with many local friends who have given him an inside track to " cooling it. " He always has a friendly word for everyone, leaving little doubt that " Dud " will excel in his pursuit of a career in Naval Aviation. Sixth Battalion 519 HENRY CARL HIRSCH Westbury, Long Island, New York Harry entered the Naval Academy directly from high school, where he was a top student and athlete.

One of the top men in his class, he continued his winning ways here. He had little trouble with Plebe year academics and was a member of the Plebe cross-country and the indoor and outdoor track teams, moving on to the varsity during youngster year. When he broke a bone in his foot indulging in a game of badminton, he decided that badminton was not for him. Denny was as loyal to the Mid-West as possible and would do his best to convince you of the superiority of Big Ten football, the state of Iowa, and Mid-West girls. He was very convincing and was quick to display his friendly attitude toward others. One could always depend on Denny for help at any time, and he will be remembered by the Brigad ' as a really likeable guy. 520 Class of 1 963 JAMES JOSEPH HOGAN, III Manchester, New Hampshire J. J., an active member in the overload program, could be seen almost anytime coming back from extra instruction — his one and only overload.

Studies weren ' t exceptionally hard for Steve, and plebe year he must have set some sort of record with only three " come arounds " . Known affectionately as " The Cow " he is still undecided as to what branch of service he will enter upon graduation. Steve often found himself longing for the sun and sand of Santa Monica and puzzled over the snow and rain of his four year stay at Annapolis. Aside from his popularity and gridiron ability, Steve is also an enthusiastic fisherman, a fine swimmer, and as many on Youngster Cruise will attest, a pretty good poker player.

Sixth Battalion 521 DONALD EDWARD JACOBS Culver City, California Although Jake held a low opinion of our winter weather, his tales of California surfing kept spirits alive when the " dark ages " rolled around each year. Academically, Jake found " skinny " to be a challenge, and he was often known to spend that lonely weekend dragging his science book and whispering sweet things to his slide rule. His ability to put himself to work brought him through and will take him far. Art was Jake ' s real talent, and his personal cartoons had a way of bringing out a smile when those little things got someone down. The tall boy ' s pleasant smile not only won him many friends at the Academy, but stole the hearts of the fairer sex as well.

He is the inventor of the now popular desk mounted slide rule holder and the neon " Initial the E. D. list — Turn in Forms ' W " sign. And no one will forget the coffee chit he received from President Eisenhower Plebe summer. The repercussions almost put the " Saj " thirty seconds behind schedule. His socratic inquiries into the nature of solving " Skinny " and " Steam " problems and his superb organization of notes and formulae have won the " Saj " the reputation of being an erudite scholastic machine among his classmates. He will be a fine officer no matter what his service. GERARD GRIFFIN JOHNSON Wilmette, Illinois Jerry came to the Academy from Wilmette, Illinois. Since the first day of plebe year his positive attitude and pleasing personality have gained for him many friends.

A sports enthusiast from the word go, he excelled in lacrosse which suits his fighting, never-say-die spirit to a " T " . Tom ' s marks in dago were always the envy of his classmates and his ready adaptability to languages will help him no matter where he goes. With a flair for the free and easy life, Tom has never settled on an OAO, but it will be a lucky girl who finally anchors him down. Any wardroom in the fleet will be sure to find him a big asset. WESLEY EARL JORDAN Richmond, Virginia Have you ever had a distasteful job to be done and no one available to do it conscientiously? If so, Wesley is your man, for he works hard on a job until he has completed it. At seventeen he graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in Richmond, Virginia, and entered USNA.

Once at the Academy he quickly took up where he had left off, participating in varsity 150 pound football and track. Small as a dashman, John made up for his lack of size with a quick start and lots of hustle. In academics his biggest problem was foreign languages, but after a two year struggle he emerged the victor. Blonde-headed and with a ready smile, John somehow managed to achieve that " mischievous look " throughout his days at the Academy in spite of the executive department. His best times were spent, of course, on summer cruise where he made his presence known by being seen in the company of very attractive young ladies. John is headed for Navy Line upon graduation. Sixth Battalion 523 FELIX FRANCOIS KARABASZ Coral Gables, Florida Leaving the sunny beaches of Florida, " Sam " arrived at USNA with his friendly personality and his tennis racket.

He is a fine athlete on both varsity and intramural levels and a rough competitor in any game or party. Most of his time in the fall is taken up earning " N-stars " in 150 pound football. He is a devout music lover and likely to sing or play you a song any time. This gay young blade is never at a loss for female companionship. He could be seen with a member of his " lucky 20 " almost any weekend. Some of his classmates had the honor of escorting friends of some of the members of this select group. Since becoming a Midshipman, Ray has one dream and that is to tour the South Sea islands. He will be a competent officer, a credit to his uniform, and above all, a fine friend. 526 Class of 1 963 THOMAS VINCENT LaMAY Easton, Pennsylvania A native son of Pennsylvania, " T. V. " came to Navy directly from Easton High School. Since the first day of Plebe summer, he proved himself a hard worker mixing his studies, athletics, and social life equally. Not one to pass up a good time, Tom can always be trusted to contribute to any merrymaking. A well rounded individual, his main interests include base- ball, dragging, golf, dragging, reading, and dragging. His ability to get along with people and his fine sense of responsibility has won him much respect among his classmates. A good student and a good athlete, Tom has a sense of perspective and keen mind that will prove him excellent officer material. CHARLES LEE LAMBERTH Gadsden, Alabama Mickey, a true son of the South, came to Navy by way of Auburn University. He spent two years there enrolled in the regular Naval ROTC. At Auburn he was a member of Sigma Chi Fraternity and studied engineer- ing, girls, and assorted other courses. When Mick came to the Academy, he was already well indoctrinated in college and Navy life. Because of previous studies, he was able to validate certain courses and work toward a major in engineering. His major interests while at the Academy were light-weight football, the Y. P. Squadron, and extra-curricular activities. Mick was always known to be a good administrator, which may be exem- plified by the victory parties he organized during football seasons. With his versatile abilities and easy-going personality, Mick will undoubtedly be an asset to the officer corps of the United States Navy. STEPHEN CHARLES LEISGE Denver, Colorado Steve came to USNA from Pike ' s Peak unaware that another branch of Uncle Sam ' s militia had a slot for him in his own state. Nonetheless he found the Blue Gold very suitable. Steve was marked among his classmates with a perpetual air of good humor. Seldom if ever did one find him without a smile, even after one of the Science Department " Specials " . His tremendous spirit rubbed off on others in the Hall as well as on the playing field. When he wasn ' t kicking a soccer ball around, he was sure to be the noisiest one on the sidelines. Application and integrity helped him to do very well academically throughout his stay. Steve ' s biggest thrills were moving into the Bancroft Hilton last year and spending second class summer down South. All who have had the pleasure of knowing Steve are sure he ' ll be a fine credit to the officer ranks of the Navy. Sixth Battalion 527 RICHARD JOHN LENNOX Woodland Hills, California Having entered the academy by way of the " fleet " , Dick had already received his first taste of Navy life. Apparently this first taste seemed to agree with him since he made the most of what the Academy had to offer. Dick has come to be known for his determination and fierce competitiveness in squash and cross country. These attributes were also evident in Dick ' s academic endeavors, enabling him to stand in the upper division of his class. Not limiting his interests, Dick was an active member of the Brigade Activities Committee and the company representative for the Lucky Bag. When he couldn ' t be found in one of these activities he was out on the bay sailing with the sailing squadron. In his extra-extra- curricular activities Dick could often be found escorting many a fair lass in and around the " campus " . With his many character assets imbued in his personality we will look for Dick at the top in whatever branch of the Navy he chooses. JERRY T. LOCKETT Leesburg, Florida Jerry came to the Naval Academy from his " Sunshine State " via the Sewanee Military Academy, Sewanee, Tenn. Due to his background there, he never had any trouble with academics and frequently maintained a Superintendent ' s list average. In his spare time, Jerry managed to partic- ipate in intramural football, tennis, and Softball, as well as reading a large repertoire of classical literature. His classmates will always remember Jerry ' s frequent trips to town to see local one and only — more or less. A confirmed bachelor nonetheless, his future includes Air Force Ground and Missiles. With his large store of radical ideas, Jerry is sure to make a definite name for himself in the service. CARL FLACK LOGAN San Gabriel, California C. Flack Logan came to USNA filled with that zealous desire to follow those pursuits that lead us to careers in the Navy. Dedicated to self-betterment, within the scope of aid for his peers, Flack ' s career has been divided between the gridiron and the sea. As a plebe he was an outstanding footballer, until cut down by a knee injury. Flack returned to the sea and was a happy person with the salt spray brushing his face on Ocean Sailing team. As of late Flack has been observed cavorting on the field of the company volleyball league with equal success. A fine athlete from the " Land of Laguna " , Flack is a mis-placed Californian. A lover of the sunshine and all that represents the joy of the big surf, and miles of the soft white sand. Flack has spent much time here dwelling on the joys of the " other side of the fence " . But dedication is above desire, and he perseveres. This man wants to be a Naval Officer, a flier at that; with his drive and extreme desire only success is assured for Flack. 528 Class of 1 963 SAMUEL JOSEPH LoPRESTI Bethesda, Maryland Joe, born and raised in " the land of the sky blue waters, " came to the academy from Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda. While there he excelled in basketball, baseball, and football as well as student government. Always a boost to any intramural team, Joe loves to play his football on the muddiest of fields. Any of his many friends will attest to the fact that he is always ready with a helping hand or a bit of sound advice for all those who need it. He is an enthusiastic lover of music and is no stranger to the trumpet which he played for ten years. Joe is very far from being a confirmed bachelor, and whatever he does after graduation, marriage will certainly be a part of his plans. DAVID BRUCE LUTES Hollister, Idaho Dave is probably the only man in ' 63 who can boast that every person in his hometown turned out for his sendoff to the Naval Academy, for he hails from Hollister, Idaho (Population 34.) His exceptional abilities with nearly every musical instrument there is, gained " Dingles " quick notoriety among his classmates, and his wit and easy-going manner made him a favorite of all who came in contact with him. When he wasn ' t poring over the books, Dave was usually found excelling on the athletic field, especially in cross-country, or entertaining at hops and smokers as a member of the Spiffy ' s. Though usually lighthearted and gay, he still had his serious side and could be relied upon to do a fine job at any task. Dave ' s warmth and charm are sure to be an asset to his career in the Fleet. Neither the Service nor the Academy could ask for a finer representative. ROBERT ALEX MAIER Rochester, New York Bob came to Navy from the shores of Lake Ontario in upstate New York. Prior to becoming a Midshipman he was in ROTC at Purdue for a year. He earned his stars plebe year and kept them all the way through which is an accomplishment in itself. Fall and spring found Bob, an avid Ocean Sailor, out on the Highland Light, and the winters found him spearheading the company cross-country team. His prowess in academics was exceeded only by his effervescent personality and attraction to the fairer sex. Liberty call never found Bob in Bancroft Hall, and leaves and Super- intendent ' s List weekends were spent in Rochester. Bob ' s cheerfulness along with his intelligence and ability to work hard are sure to be a great asset to the Naval service. Sixth Battalion 529 VIRGIL DONALD MARKUS Lawrencehurg, Tennessee Virg, a real " go getter, " who hails from Lawrencehurg, Tennessee, came to the Naval Academy via the Naval Preparatory School at Bainbridge, Maryland. He had a distinguished academic record at the Prep School. As a Midshipman he was among the top men in the class, wearing stars and gain- ing the extra benefits of the Superintendent ' s List. Virg is an avid sports fan and when he was not studying he participated in company sports such as cross country and soccer. He is also an active member of the French Club. Virg ' s dedication, fine personal appearance, congenial attitude, and military bearing point the way to an interesting and rewarding future as a Naval Officer. EDDY JOE MASCITTO San Pedro, California Eddy came to the Academy from the shores of sunny California after spending a year at Harbor Junior College in Los Angeles, where he was an outstanding center on the Harbor ' s football team. A bad knee injury prevented Eddy from playing ball for Navy, but the varsity ' s loss was the Twenty-Second ' s gain sportswise. Although " Skeeter " always claimed to be just barely satisfactory in academics, he rarely came up against anything he couldn ' t handle and was well-known for his diligence in studying. Even though Navy takes up most of Eddy ' s time, the fairer sex doesn ' t have much of a chance when he heads for his native California. Eddy has brought back many a story to entertain his classmates. Having spent his summers before coming to USNA with the Los Angeles fishing fleet, Eddy intends to increase his knowledge of the sea as a Naval Line officer on the West Coast. JOHN ALAN McANALLY Manhasset, New York After graduating from St. Mary ' s High, where he was a star in basketball and track, Al selected Boston College as the school of his dreams. This dream was short lived, however, because one year later he accepted an appointment to the Academy. Al adapted himself to Academy life quickly, and after Plebe year several good things were noticed about him. He was a fine competitor in intramural football and lacrosse and still had time to do a good job academically. A great chow hound, Al anticipated all meal formations with a gleam in his eye, even after Plebe year ended. His good sense of humor and easy going attitude always made him a pleasure to be around. All of his life, Al has dreamed of flying off Navy carriers, and so he plans to make his career in Naval Aviation. 530 Class of 1963 ROBERT EWING McCRACKEN La Grange, Illinois Bob hails from the capital of the Mid-West, Chicago. Bringing with him a warm personality and disarming wit, Bob soon made many friends. Never one to become flustered, Bob took the rigors of plebe and second class years in stride, and could always be counted on for the right phrase at the right time. Thanks to him, many a trying moment was left in the wake of laughter. Academics never posed a problem for Bob, so he channeled his energy to two of his many loves, good books and sailing. As anyone who has ever seen his bookshelf will attest, Bob ' s conversational prowess was a result of a wealth of good reading as well as a natural wit. A fine officer and a gentleman always. Bob will be respected by all who have the good fortune to work with him. ROGER WILLIAM MEHLE, JR. Washington, D. C. A Navy Junior from everywhere, Roger entered the Academy with the firm conviction that Nuclear Power held the key to his all-Navy future. While preparing for his chosen field, Rog ' s acuteness in academics enabled him to pursue the study of three modern Languages. By no means a man to limit his interests, he harmonized with the Catholic Choir weekly and each spring offered his talents to the varsity golf team. Indeed, his ability on the links is surpassed only by his ability to take command of his friend ' s drags. A man of unfailing wit, warm good humor and easy capability, Roger will always be a valuable asset to the Naval Service. KENNETH STUART METVINER Bronx-New York City, New York An extremely diversified knowledge of worldly things and an amazing capacity to pull widely unrelated facts out of his cerebral treasure chest have characterized the presence of the " V " in the Brigade of Mid- shipmen. His rotund stature combined with his jovial jowls have endeared him to his classmates. Knowing " A little about everything, and not too much about any one thing " has enabled the " V " to out-talk even the most erudite conversationalists. Initiation of the validation program plebe year also began the " V ' s " successful career in the validation of weekend watches, Parades, Extra Duty, and almost every course the Academy offered. In fact, if it hadn ' t been for his ability to play chow on the violin, the " V " would have validated plebe year too. But, all has not been lost. Ken has turned his many talents Navy way, and the fleet will receive a fine destroyer man. Sixth Battalion 53 i JOHN ROSS MIDDLETON Sedalia, Missouri After a year of breaking the hearts of many a young lady at the University of Missouri, John has carried on this tradition as a member of the Brigade. In his spare time, he has even managed to become a regular member of the Superintendent ' s List, and on the athletic field John, a fierce competitor, has been a leader on his company soccer, basketball, and Softball teams. An active member of the NACA and the OCU, John has done much to further religious activities in the Brigade. Throughout his stay at the Academy, he has been a leader among his classmates and is well liked by all. The future holds great promise for this young man from the " show me " state, and it is certain that he will not wait around to be shown much. With his capacity for leadership and his competitive spirit, there is no doubt that John will go far. RICHARD AUGUST MIEHLE Philadelphia, Pennsylvania From the beginning of plebe year on. Rich was noted for his mental prowess and academic excellence, as attested by the stars that decorated his uniform. However, he still managed to find time to participate in varsity and intramural athletics. At one time or another he engaged in cross-country, tennis, soccer, and squash. His charm with the fair sex was internationally known, since he spent a large part of his leaves traversing Europe and the United States. In addition to his travels, " The Mouse " also used many a weekend hop to good advantage. Rich has ambitions for a long career in Nuclear Submarines, and to further this goal he enrolled in elective courses in the Science Department. He will undoubtedly be more than a credit to the Submarine Fleet, the Naval Service, and the Academy. THOMAS EDWARD MORGAN, JR. Rutherford, New Jersey Tom came directly to the Naval Academy from Robert E. Lee High School in Staunton, Virginia. The academic departments never presented any trouble to Tom, as he could be found almost any evening helping out a classmate with mathematics or science. Most of Tom ' s free time on the weekends (when he wasn ' t dragging, of course!) were devoted to the Reception Committee. The rest of his time was spent on company sports. Tom was an active and aggressive player in company volleyball, squash, and football. What ' s in the future for Tom? Perhaps postgraduate school sometime, but whatever is in store for him, we ' re sure he ' ll definitely be long remembered as a good friend by the friendships he cultivated during his four years at USNA. 532 Class of 1963 FRANK KNOX MUTCH Missoula, Montana Fishing, hunting, Jazz, women, and wine, not necessarily in that order, but as the year passes one of these is always at the head of Frank ' s current preferences. He is not a fellow to be found wasting time; he always has something in the fire. An asset to any group, Frank ' s easy going nature and subtle humor have made many lasting friends for him here. Music has not always been just a pastime for Frank. He was an accomplished jazz drummer before entering the Naval Academy, and has played with several groups during his four year stay. We will hear more of Frank in the years to come. ROBERT LEE NELSON Simi, California Although just out of high school. Bob came very capably equipped for academy life to both gain and impart a great deal of knowledge while preparing for his role in our future. Bob ' s free time, meaning most of the time, was shared by the business end of an oscilloscope up in the Radio Club, the pursuance of any number of battalion and company sports ranging from football to badminton, and dragging his very winsome OAO. However, his special talent was electrical engineering, and he flirted with the Superintendent ' s List throughout his stay. Many were the times he readily explained to his classmates their skinny courses. A multitude of interests in many fields and a command of each assures the Navy ' s answer to Steve Canyon an outstanding future in any technical position. NICHOLAS JAMES NERANGIS Utica, New York Sports cars and girls were the primary interests of the little Greek from upstate New York. Nick, his pleasant smile, and his little red sports car were a familiar sight to twenty-fourth company firsties, and his overly decorated bathrobe was a familiar sight within the confines of Bancroft Hall. A sports star in high school, Nick broad jumped on the plebe track team and then participated in battalion track and football and company cross country the rest of his time at Navy. When not busy escorting a member of the fair sex, Nick was usually occupied with sports cars or athletics. Nick ' s pride and joy since plebe year has been his little MG. Following graduation, Nick plans to drive his MG to Pensacola, where a career in Navy Air awaits him. Sixth Battalion 533 ROBERT GORDON NICKERSON Long Beach, California Nick, a Californian from the word " go, " hails from Long Beach in the booming southern part of the Golden State. Constantly standing by his ideals he has won innumerable friends. Consistently at the top of his class academically, he also found time to enthusiastically give much of his time helping others and take part in varied extra-curricular activities. He was never one who advocated physical over-exertion as attested by his love of the rack. However, he spent many long afternoons with the rifle team. With a sincere appreciation of his profession, he looks with great anticipation to a successful career in Navy Line. JOHN HARRY NIELSEN Chicago, Illinois John blew into the Naval Academy from the Windy City, found it to his liking, and decided to stay. It was a gain both for him and Navy. Academics never presented a problem to John. His application and con- centration enabled him to stand in the top quarter of his class. And yet he was no bookworm either — his tall good looks and charming personality made him a favorite with the fair sex. John, too, was quick to demonstrate his athletic ability with capable performances on the plebe and varsity swimming teams, and for relaxation he lent his fine tenor voice to the Antiphonal Choir each Sunday. In John, we feel all hands will discover a fine officer and a credit to the Service. GERALD TAKEO NOMURA Los Angeles, California Pete would gladly take one breath of the California smog and trade it for the humidified eastern atmosphere. Coming from Los Angeles, he joined the movement which saw a few odd hundred Californians join the class of ' 63. Subject to the whims of a mind with varied interests, Pete would even take an engineering overload if he found time to put down his cards, fishing rod, and other diversions. Twice a year Pete would settle down and join his classmates and prep for the oncoming rush of exams. He could " gouge " his classmates more than himself and never had any serious academic troubles. Pete is a good boxer and was a standout in plebe football until an untimely shoulder injury occurred. En- joying all sports, he has lent a hand to many company teams. In the future, Pete ' s diversified interests and abilities may just find him in Naval Aviation. 534 Class of 1 963 ANTHONY JAMES OAKES, JR. San Mateo, California Jim comes from San Mateo, California, located on the San Francisco Peninsula. He attended Serra High School and the College of San Mateo before coming to Annapolis. As an all-Northern California quarterback, Jim brought to USNA fantastically high ratings and helped spark the Plebes to a very successful season. During youngster year, Jim played on the varsity, but an injury during spring practice hampered him. Consequently, he decided to turn his aggressiveness to battling the books. Being an avid Californian, Jim spent most of his summer leaves at Lake Tahoe or hopping to Hawaii. His " black book " was noted throughout the Brigade, and he always seemed to have the prettiest girl everywhere he went. Jim, a Bull major, never had much trouble with the E. H. and G. Department, and next to the Navy, his chief interest lies in politics. With his fine attitude and never-ending zeal, Jim should make a fine line officer. RICHARD EUGENE OMOHUNDRO Arlington, Virginia Since his arrival from Arlington, Virginia, Rich has been the key man of many Navy crews. As the plebe heavyweight crew coxswain, he urged and led his shell to an undefeated season and a fourth place in the Olympic elimination finals. Third class year found Rich on the National Sprint Championship Crew. He has been top cox of the heavies ever since. Between crew seasons, " Omo " could be found on the company lightweight football team. Though certain of the academic departments seemed to slow him down at times, Rich always came through with flying colors, managing to stand with the first of his class in foreign languages and in English. Rich ' s wonderful sense of humor and always cheerful, sincere manner will make him as successful in the fleet as he has been at the Naval Academy. RICHARD MARVIN ORTWEIN Grosse Point, Michigan Dick came to U.S.N.A. after attending Grosse Pointe High School. Although he had difficulties with his academics, Dick always managed to pull them out. His extra-curricular activities included reading his girl ' s letters and starring in company basketball. Weekends he could be found dragging, as he had a weakness for the fair sex. He also had a weakness for Rock Roll, much to the anguish of his roommates. Dick plans to make a career of the Navy. Wherever he goes, his agreeable nature will make him a success. Sixth Battalion 535 RICHARD RANDELL PACE Champaign, Illinois Rich, a devout sportsman and hearty Midwesterner from Illinois, has contributed much to the prestige of the Brigade in his four years at the Academy. Taking up most of his time was varsity basketball, where he used the speed and versatility of his six-four frame to its best advantage. His spare time in the evening was usually spent thinking up and drawing cartoons for the " Splinter " . His favorite pastimes included listening to the Kingston Trio and taking leave. Rich has never been known to give up when it comes to any form of competition — be it pool or basketball. His " never say die " attitude developed through a long athletic career will with- out a doubt help him gain those rungs on the long ladder of a successful career. WILLIAM ROBERT PALAFOX El Paso, Texas Bill came to Navy from the sunny Southwest, a point he em- phasized over and over again. After a year at Navy he was forced to settle down to the life of a midshipman, a life far different from that in West Texas. Being a cross-country runner in the fall, often he would be seen running the hill at Hospital Point. In the spring he made a name for himself in the squash court. His leisure time was divided between women, movies, and answering scores of letters. Not inclined to talk too much, but always ready for a good time, his quiet, easy-going manner gained him many friends. JOHN LEROY PARKS Coronado, California John came directly from high school to the school that seems to be the predestined lot of many Navy Juniors. He soon became known throughout the Brigade for his outstanding photography, as his trusty camera followed him wherever he went. John eventually became photo editor of the LOG, the SPLINTER, and the 1963 Lucky Bag. On the athletic side he rowed plebe crew and has participated in many company sports. Although no slouch at grade getting, John proved the old adage that academic achievement varies as the inverse square of rack time. Barring any unforeseen accident John hopes to go Navy Air, and graduation will find him opening a charge account at Trader Jon ' s while learning to be a jet jockey. 536 Class of 1 963 RAYMOND LEE PEKARY Santa Monica, California Leaving the campus of UCLA and the brothers of Theta Chi, Lee traveled to the banks of the Severn to join the Brigade of Midshipmen. While attending USNA, he has excelled in both academics and sports. He joined the Foreign Relations Club and was on the Superintendent ' s List several times. During his Plebe year, Lee played on the squash and tennis teams. In successive years he won several " N-stars " and made a name for himself in these varsity sports. His friends will tell you that Lee can always be seen with a racket ! Among his other many and varied interests are math, volleyball, surfing, camping, reading, and dragging. Lee ' s good humor, conscientious nature, and tremendous drive will surely help him succeed as a naval officer. RICHARD ROCKWELL PRATT, JR. Wonalancet, New Hampshire In May of 1959 a choice of location had something to do with " Rocky ' s " turning down an appointment to the Air Academy, for Annapolis is closer to his two main considerations, Washington (La femme) and sailing. Having sailed since about the age of seven, he naturally reported faithfully as a member of the ocean sailing team. This led up to the " Eagle " cruise as a youngster, and square-rigged sailing ships have been his great love ever since. He recalls the amusing situation of an Air Force officer ' s opinion on the Colorado-Annapolis question. This officer rec- ommended the U.S.N.A. over the U.S.A.F.A. for its " more rounded professional background. " After the first Air Force-Navy football game (35-3, Navy) " RcKky " was more convinced than ever that " his advice " had been right! Hoping to combine batchelorhood with flying, (the former not to last past 28) the future holds the best for this ambitious New Englander. RONNIE REGINALD RADFORD St. Augustine, Florida When Ron arrived at Crabtown, he found adjusting to this antique city an easy matter for he hails from our nation ' s oldest city. He started his trek northward by spending two years at Davidson College in North Carolina, where he was a math and physics major. At the Naval Academy he continued his interests along these lines, taking every math and physics course available. He was also a respected member of the Advanced Science and Mathematics Seminar. His talents, however, are not solely academic, for he has excelled in athletics as well. He tried his hand at a number of sports and became recognized as a fine squash player as well as a standout on many company teams. Ron ' s ability to make and keep friends plus his driving ambition to do everything right marks him as a fine prospect for a successful Naval officer. Sixth Battalion 537 THOMAS GRAYSON REDFORD, JR. Richmond, Virginia From the capital of the confederacy, Grayson came to the Naval Academy after two years at Randolph-Macon College, near Richmond. He has found life at the academy both enjoyable and demanding. Not only has he managed to keep his grades above average, but also has been able to participate in several extracurricular activities. He has been very active in the Masqueraders ' Prop Gang, the NACA, and the Reception Committee. Although he enters into many intramural sports, his favorite has been knockabout sailing in the Spring. His sights are set on a career in Naval Aviation, but no matter what his eventual choice, he is sure to be a great success. TILDEN ROBERT REID Macon, Georgia Coming to the Academy after three years of Military Prep school and one year of college, the " redhead from Georgia " soon adjusted to the rigors of Plebe year. His fighting spirit and determination quickly made their appearance, giving Til the championship of his weight division in Plebe summer boxing. Boxing continued to be his main sports interest throughout his tour of duty at USNA, but he managed to spend some time with fieldball and several other intramural sports during his stay. Not being afraid to apply himself academically, he was not content with the normal academic load, and many a seventh period found him at his Bull overloads. Til ' s quick smile and friendly personality will always be remembered by his many friends throughout the Brigade. Til 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 an officer in the service. DAVID CHARLES REIF McAlester, Oklahoma Dave spent two years at Benedictine Heights College in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he majored in Chemistry and played varsity basketball before coming East to enter the Academy. Although he found it quite a bit different than the campus life, it didn ' t take long for him to get into the swing of things. Dave never had too much trouble with the academics, and he could always be seen tutoring classmates for skinny P-works. Week- ends usually found Dave out dragging, as he believed this was the only sane way to spend a free day. A good athlete, Dave starred in battalion tennis and basketball, but tennis remains his favorite sport. Of course, with a good German name like Reif, Dave was a member of the German Club. Dave plans to journey to Pensacola after graduation and win the Wings of Gold. 538 Class of 1 963 KEITH EARL REYNOLDS Chicago, Illinois Keith came to the banks of the Severn from the shores of Lake Michigan, fresh out of Lane Tech High SchooL As the years progressed, he found his greatest adversary in the Dago department. When he wasn ' t hitting the books or writing letters, he kept himself busy in the Brigade Activities Committee, and the Naval Academy Christian Association, and even landed himself the job of teaching Sunday School. In the afternoon he enjoyed working on the company soccer and battalion lacrosse teams. At first, lost in the tempo of life at USNA, Keith couldn ' t make up his mind among the many naval career choices, but second class summer zeroed him in on aviation, in which he now hopes to become Navy ' s answer to Sky King. RICHARD MAGEE ROHRBACH Severna Park, Maryland Rick ' s entrance to the Academy involved a move of only about ten miles down the Severn, however this short distance caused quite a change in his activities. Rick gained renown quite early in his career as a Mid- shipman when he was christened " Flash, " the living legend of the fastest man in the Brigade, by a notorious member of the class of ' 60. Rick, no stranger to the game of Lacrosse when he came here, was quick to put his talent to good use on the varsity squad. Also quite active in intramurals. Rick enjoyed playing company lightweight football but graduated to the heavyweights after Plebe year. On the extra-curricular side Rick was a great asset to the Reception Committee and Foreign Relations Club. Aca- demically, his efforts brought him to the Superintendent ' s List level — he ' d do anything for an extra weekend. Rick ' s capabilities and ability to make friends make him a certain success in whatever field he chooses. PAUL VERB ROUNDY Ocean Grove, New Jersey P. V. made the best out of his four years at Navy. Paul was noted for his friendly smile and the ability to say something good about everyone. During plebe year he was a member of the Ocean Sailing Team but gave it up to excel in such company sports as cross-country, boxing, volleyball, and basketball. He also took time out during Second Class Summer to make a trip to Peru to help dedicate the Bancroft Hall of the Peruvian Naval Academy. Hailing from Asbury Park, New Jersey, where he was president of his high school student body and letter winner in basketball, Paul spent many an hour convincing the Brigade that Jersey really is a " hot spot " . Paul was a definite credit to the Brigade because of his friendly attitude and winning personality. Sixth Battalion 539 MICHAEL JON RUBEL Marysville, California Rube, a California cowboy, set out to see the world via USNA and has been riding tall in the saddle ever since. After a year as a moon- light gambler at the University of Nevada, his experience and easy-going manner eased him through the usual pitfalls and left him plenty of time for athletics and social wanderings. Afternoons found him bolstering the company soccer and football teams, while weekends usually turned his thoughts to the fairer sex. Equally adept on a playing field, date, or with a set of hair clippers, Mike has been a welcome addition to any gathering. Although never one to miss a good laugh, a sense of responsibility and organization, coupled with an ability to make friends, should stand him in good stead in every future endeavor. JERUD WAYNE RYKER Whitewater, Wisconsin Jerry calls Whitewater, Wisconsin, his home, but his travels before coming to the shores of the Severn make his home and his seabag seem one. He enlisted in the Navy in 1957, after one year of college. Just before completing Guided Missile School, he was sent to the Naval Preparatory School, and his entrance to USNA followed one year later. Jerry, a man of boundless energy, worked it off in many different ways. He was a bulwark of the tenor section in the Antiphonal Choir, an ever-hustling manager of the soccer team, a persistent Log and Splinter representative, and an enthusiastic accordion player. He obviously has found a way to put more than twenty-four hours in a day, for neither his grades nor his harem have been neglected. Jerry ' s never-failing good humor has stood him in good stead at the Naval Academy. We wish him good luck and success in the future. JACK EMILE SAUX, JR. New Orleans, Louisiana Jack, a true rebel, came to the Naval Academy straight from Jesuit High with a determination to " set the place straight " in his mind. Although he never quite succeeded in doing so, he never gave up his attempts. Academics were no trouble for Jade, and although his grades were better than average, he still found time to devote to the LOG, -the Lucky Bag, and sailing. Not one to forget about the finer things in life. Jack is known for being a connoisseur of wine, women, and song, and he can always be counted upon to take part in any merrymaking which may arise. Jack ' s dreams for the future are housed around " jockeying a jet. " We all know that regardless of the game he plays. Jack can be counted on to come out a winner. 540 Class of 1 963 EMIL MARK SCHWING Johnstown, Pennsylvania Before coming to the Naval Academy, Mark attended Johnstown College of Pittsburg University for one year. Mark ' s biggest contribution to the Brigade has been as varsity sailing manager. Proving his ability to handle the job, he was elected manager for his second class year and again for first class year. He has also played company football. On the extra-curricular side Mark has been active in the photography and model railroad clubs. Mark ' s favorite hobby, however, is building stereophonic amplifiers and tuners, and he claims to have one of the finest stereo systems in Bancroft Hall. Mark will be a credit to his country no matter what his career choice. LAWRENCE ALBERT SCOTT Milwaukee, Wisconsin Coming from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, by way of NAPS, " Scotty " arrived at USNA with the twin ambitions of graduating and entering into Naval Aviation. His warm smile and usual display of personality have enabled him to capture strong friendships among his classmates and fellow midshipmen. When he wasn ' t studying, " Scotty " was usually short-circuited inside someone ' s radio or reading his Electronic ' s World magazines. He was a success in everything he pursued. This could be seen from his per- formances on the company cross-country and 150 pound football teams. He later devoted much of his time and enthusiasm to YP ' s and ocean sailing. " Scotty ' s " cheerfulness and knack of getting along with people will certainly insure his success as a Naval Officer. NORMAN JOHN SHACKELTON, JR. Massapequa Park, New York Diversification was " Shack ' s " claim to fame. During the year he was a regular in Battalion football, and lacrosse, and company soccer, squash, and Softball. Not to be outdone on the academic side, his year in college before he became a midshipman put him in a validated category taking additional electives. Born in Syracuse, New York, he came to the Academy by way of Toronto, Canada, and Long Island, New York. His year in college was spent at State University of New York, College on Long Island where he was majoring in engineering. Carrying over his interests to the Academy, his elective courses reflected his abilities in this field. As a member of the Reception Committee, visitors to the Academy always received a good impression of midshipmen from Norm. His participation in Academy functions left everyone with a good impression. Sixth Battalion 541 JAMES ASHTON SHAW Charlottesville, Virginia Jim, Charlottesville ' s contribution to Annapolis, chose the Academy life over the fraternity life of the University of Virginia. Before coming to USNA, he attended Severn School, where he distinguished himself as the school ' s finest athlete. He continued to remain active in sports including 150 pound football, lacrosse, and boxing. The weekend before a Monday P-Work, Jim could usually be seen dragging some sweet young thing through the yard. During the week, he spent most of his free time in the horizontal position smoking someone else ' s cigarettes. Second class summer at TRAMID convinced him to seek a career in the Marine Corps. Jim will be a credit to the service, as well as a fine representative of the Academy. DAVID RAYMOND SHORE Lincoln, Rhode Island One of the oldest members of our class, Dave hails from Lincoln, Rhode Island. Upon graduating from high school he spent three years at Phillips Exeter Academy, Yale, and the Naval Academy Prep School, respectively, before settling down on the banks of the Severn. All of this previous schooling, aided him no end in his first two years at Navy, during which time his name graced the Superintendent ' s List. But it was not all study for Dave, in that many an hour was spent on the river with the Plebe and varsity Crew while Plebe swimming and company cross country and field ball rounded out his time in the athletic field during the off season. Working towards a Foreign Languages major, Dave carried over- load courses in German and Russian, supplementing his class room work with active participation in these language clubs. Not to be contained with personal interests only, he also dedicated two years ' work as Lucky Bag representative. Dave is looking forward to joining the ranks of Naval Aviation on graduation. JAMES CHARLES SINGLER Richmond Hill, New York Born and raised in the " Big City, " Jimmy came to the Academy straight from high school. Throughout his life Jim ' s main goal has been to become a career Naval Officer. Working toward this end, he spent a half year in the Naval Reserve as well as closing out his high school days with an excellent academic record. " Jace " — derived from J.C. — has a keen sense of humor and an extraordinary wit, which he combines to create a personality well known to all his friends. While holding down good grades in all subjects, " Jace " is tops in the Foreign Language field. By means of the elective system Jim is shooting for a major in Spanish. Not one to be unaware of physical fitness, Jace has excelled in intramural crew while here at the Academy. Upon graduation the Navy will be getting a fine " Thirty year man " in " Jace. " 542 Class of 1 963 WILLIAM EARL SMALL Brookline, Massachusetts Bud came to the Academy from what he calls " the hub of the Nation " , Boston. His main hobby has been sports, and he has acquired a fine reputation playing football, fieldball, and softball. Studies have been one of his better endeavors, being consistently on the Superintendent ' s List. He is a very likeable person bearing a resemblance to a koala bear. This could be the reason the girls flock around him. Bud is also a home body, traveling to Boston whenever he was able to get a weekend. Graduation will provide the service with a fine officer who will be ready to do his job well. NEIL AUSTIN SMART Arlington, Virginia With guitar in hand and that ever present smile, Neil traveled Annapolis way from Arlington, Virginia. An old hand at crew, he was forced to trade oar for slide rule after a few rounds with the " skinny " department. Neil has devoted much time and energy to the musical activi- ties at the Academy. A member of both choir and glee club, he found time to play the organ for the chapel at the academy hospital on Sunday mornings. Aside from his time with the studies and extracurricular activities. he found dating an ever possible and pleasant pastime on those spare week- ends from the books. The plans of the future hold Navy Air for this jovial Southerner " throttling the fastest with the mostest. " With his practice of combining diligent work with his ever pleasing personality, Neil will achieve all his future goals and be a credit to the fleet in every way. JOHN BERNARD SOTMAN Rumford, Maine John came to USNA from the small Maine town of Rumford after one year at the University of Maine. During Plebe year he became famous as the only Plebe in the company who never rose before reveille. Youngster year it ' s hard to say if John spent more time sleeping or studying. He did very well in academics though, with very little " extra studying. " In general, he seemed to grasp the studies with ease all four years. John was a real home lover, and it was not unusual to see him heading for Rumford for a weekend first and second class year. He was an excellent intramural soccer and fieldball player and helped his company to many vic- tories. Upon graduation John plans to go Navy line and hopes to get a ship based " as close to Maine as possible. " Whatever John decides to do, he will always be noted for doing a competent and complete job and will definitely be an asset to the fleet. Sixth Battalion 543 PETER WOLCOTT SOVEREL Newport, Rhode Island Pete has lived around quite a few Naval bases in his time but calls Newport, R. I., his home. An excellent pitcher and tennis player in high school, his first year and USNA found Pete sparking the Plebe squash team. Beginning with youngster year, his time was occupied with his Bull and Math overloads, and soon after Pete ' s " one and only " joined him in Annapolis to share his weekends. Always plunging wholeheartedly into everything with which he was associated, Pete was a man of stout convictions. With an ever ready smile, a quick reply, and a good natured laugh, Pete is a loyal and true friend. His drive, determination and friendly manner should serve him well in his chosen branch of the Navy. MICHAEL WILLIAM STEGENGA Spokane, Washington Mike reported to the Naval Academy directly from high school and indirectly from Saudi Arabia, which he called home until his parents re- turned to the United States in 1961. Academics were not Mike ' s outstanding accomplishment while he was here, perhaps because of his outstanding effort to carry out the people to people policy with several females in various parts of the country and the world. He always tried to have female contacts in any city he thought he might go to in the future, and who knows where one might go with the " Modern Navy. " His extracurricular activities were limited to WRNV, several company sports, and extra instruction. He was not afraid to learn by asking for help, nor was he unwilling to share his time if he could be of assistance. Though Mike was not the star attraction on any field, his efforts in the hall or on the field were always aimed at making the Brigade a better one. JOSEPH CHARLES STRASSER Collingswood, New Jersey Joe joined us after a year of pre-med at LaSalle College in Philadel- phia. His athletic ability was quickly recognized when he made the plebe basketball team. When not making points on the basketball court, he was scoring in the academic departments, frequently appearing on the Superin- tendent ' s List. He had leanings toward the Foreign Languages Department, where he took elective courses in Spanish. It was not a rare sight for Joe to be seen poring over the daily racing results. His love of the Sport of Kings was matched only by his love of the queens whom he dragged regularly. His election to the Brigade Honor Committee attests to the trust placed in Joe by his classmates and to his sense of responsibility. The Naval Service will be enriched by the addition of this fine officer to its ranks. 544 Class of 1963 MARK FRANCIS CRANE (formerly Mark Francis Sweeney) Annapolis, Maryland Mark came to the Naval Academy after spending two years at Catholic University in Washington, D. C. This experience has enabled him to breeze right through his academics. And if anyone wanted the " gouge " , he always came to see Sweeney. The battalion lacrosse, crew, and wrestling teams as well as the company soccer and fieldball teams have all been fortunate to have this aggressive athlete leading the competition. Mark has many famous trademarks which have endeared him to all, save the executive department. His patented " Heh, heh! " was the typical reaction to any of his many daily crises. His no-sweat attitude made plebe year an enjoyable experience for this rare midshipman who was lucky enough to live within the seven mile limit. And who but Mark could get through two years without owning any full-dress trousers. This affable graduate has proven his ability to weather any storm and will continue to be a real asset to the Navy. THOMAS LEE TAYLOR Frankfort, Kentucky " Tomato " , as Tom has been dubbed by his classmates, hails from Frankfort, Kentucky. He was an outstanding member of his high school class, and he carried his qualities of dependability, friendliness, and a keen sense of humor with him to the Academy. Since he is a typical midshipman, his pet peeves are science labs, t]uizzes, and exam week. His favorite hobby is history, and he has come to be known by his classmates as an authority on World War II. Tom is a member of the honorary organization known as the Kentucky Colonels, one of the most elite groups of the South. He was made a member by the governor of Kentucky, not only for his civic leadership in high school, but also because he holds the distinction of being the first person from Frankfort to be appointed to the Naval Academy. Upon graduation, Tom wants to go into Navy Line, preferably cruisers. WADE HAMPTON TAYLOR, III Golden, Colorado Wade came directly to the Academy after attending Boulder City High School in Boulder City, Nevada. While at the Academy his interests were varied. He was a member of the Ocean Sailing Squadron, the Prot- estant Chapel Choir, the Concert Band, the Advanced Science and Mathe- matics Seminar, and WRNV. In addition, he played company 150 pound football and found time to take elective courses in the sciences. With most of his time taken up with activities, it was a wonder that he was also able to obtain the privilege of wearing stars. His cheerful manner and his ease to see the lighter side of things made him a true friend of many. However, he was also respected for his serious attention to his work and for his ability to get a job done when the chips were down. It is because of these characteristics that he will be a credit to the Navy and to his country in future years. Sixth Battalion 545 ERWIN BENARD TEMPLIN, JR. Houston, Texas A tall, lanky, likable redhead. Skip is a real pleasure to be around. His friendly disposition and keen sense of loyalty to his classmates have made him one of the most popular persons in the Brigade. As equally at home on the basketball, volleyball, or squash court as he is at Spanish after dinner speaking. Skip has entered into many phases of Academy life. Known to all his friends is his great love of Naval Aviation, with his private goal in life being to fly with the " Blue Angels " . Coupled with this enthusiasm for Navy Air is S kip ' s devotion to the Naval Service as a whole. His only headache comes from people who profess a preference to subs over jets. Skip has indeed been a credit to the Brigade and will continue to be a credit to the Navy, when he becomes Ensign Templin, USN. RONALD FRED TESTA Watertown, Massachusetts Coming from Watertown, Massachusetts, Ron spent a year after high school at Bullis Prep. Playing football at Bullis saw Ron anchor the line that held ' 62 plebes to a 6-6 tie. Since then, to the relief of Navy coaches, Ron joined the Brigade and has been a regular tackle since plebe year. Despite his size, ' " The Bear " has been one of the agilest, fastest, men on the team. Ron is well known for his carefree yet serious attitude towards every task he undertakes from studying to eating. His tremendous appetite comes from his mother ' s fine Italian specialties. Many have won- dered where Ron puts it all. Ron enjoyed second class summer and in 1963 Naval Air may just very well find an easy going, smiling student down in Pensacola. WILLIAM HOWARD THOMPSON, II Avella, Pennsylvania Coming to the Naval Academy from Avella High School via Bullis Prep, Tom was well prepared for Naval Academy life before entering. An ardent sport ' s fan, he follows the sports page as much as he does his textbooks. Maybe his keen interest in sports accounted for his trouble with the academic departments. A fine athlete himself, he enjoyed playing com- pany football and Softball and battalion handball. Tom was always in love. When it wasn ' t with a girl, it was with a new game or a new team. This may account for the fact that he was never at a loss for " drags. " Tom ' s good sense of humor, his quick wit, and his ability to make friends and keep them will help him make a huge success in whatever field he chooses. His friends at the Naval Academy are innumerable, and he will always be remembered by them. 546 Class of 1 963 JAMES CARL THORELL Stuttgart, Arkansas Jim came to the Naval Academy after attending Arkansas Tech for one year. When he arrived, he wasted no time in making a name for him- self in the Naval Academy sports world. During plebe year he set the broad jump record and won his first varsity " N-star " in track as a youngster. Jim liked to keep himself occupied with his numerous extracurricular activities, among which was being a sportswriter for the LOG. Jim enjoyed his fair share of success with the ladies while at the Academy. His warm personality and gentlemanly manner greatly aided him in making many friends. These characteristics will undoubtedly continue to aid him in his future career. No matter what field Jim chooses, the service will be gaining a fine officer and gentleman. DAVID WOOSTER THORNHILL Arlington, Virginia Dave came to USNA from Arlington, Virginia, after two years at Severn School in Severna Park, Maryland. During his first two years in the Happy Eighteenth Company, " Thorny " added a lot to the Academy ' s sports program by participating in wrestling, squash, and softball. When he changed companies after Youngster year, Dave added touch football to his list of sports interests. Every weekend Dave could be found support- ing one of the Academy ' s favorite traditions by enjoying his liberty hours in one of the " drag houses. " Second class summer convinced Dave that the life of a Naval Aviator was the thing for him. He will be a great asset to this important branch of the Navy. JAMES CARLTON THORNTON Compton, California James Carlton Thornton, known as either Jim or J. C. to his class- mates, was born in San Diego, California, on April 17, 1940, and now calls Compton, California, his hometown. Jim attended several schools before finally settling in Compton where he graduated from high school and also attended one year of junior college. It was while at college that Jim was told of the opportunity to go to the Naval Academy, which ac- cording to Jim gave him his greatest feeling of excitement; knowing that he was one of the few lucky young men to be considered as a candidate to the United States Naval Academy. While at the Academy he played J.V. football and participated actively in intramural sports. J. C. ' s plans upon graduation include a career in the Air. Sixth Battalion 547 FRANK LEE TILLOTSON Ketchikan, Alaska Lee, a resident of Alaska, is proud of our largest state and is always willing to relate his hunting trips to anyone who will listen. A fresh product of Ketchikan High School, he has always been diligent in his pursuit of knowledge and has done credit to himself by his performances in company cross-country, basketball, squash, battalion wrestling, and 150- Ib. crew. Always a great outdoorsman, the Navy will find Lee ' s fierce competitive spirit, temperament, and leadership qualities invaluable whether his talents are utilized on the bridge of a destroyer, conning tower of a sub, or behind the stick of a Navy plane. STEPHEN SPENCER TOTH Virginia Beach, Virginia After graduating from St. George ' s School, Steve completed a year at the Virginia Military Institute before entering the Academy. Known for his quiet but persistent manner, Steve has always been desirous of meeting ' every situation with an open mind. Taking advantage of the validation program much of his time was spent working toward a major in Nuclear Physics. On the physical side Steve enters enthusiastically in battalion swim- ming and water polo, and company football. Despite this busy schedule, he is also able to take part in varied extra-curricular activities. With a firm desire to succeed, Steve looks forward to a successful career in the Navy. 548 Class of 1963 PETER JOHN VERMAIRE Grand Rapids, Michigan Pete came to the Naval Academy after a year at Michigan State University. He has been a recipient of numerous left handed salutes and multitudes of pennies, not only because of his striking resemblance to the " God of 2.5, " but because of his often given aid to struggling classmates. Though " Verm " has maintained an outstanding academic average, standing in the top of his class, he has still found time to excel in athletics, earning his " N-star " for varsity swimming during his youngster year, and also taking an active part in the LOG and N-Club activities. With his hard working and conscientious outlook on life, Pete ' s demonstrated abilities in academics and leadership can only lead to a great future for him, what- ever his endeavors. VERNON HANS VON SYDOW Levittown, Pennsylvania Coming to the Academy through the Naval Reserve Quota, Vern attended Columbian Prep in Washington, D. C, before settling down on Severn ' s shores. A graduate of Pennsbury High School, he played football, and also wrestled there. Vern kept up his athletic interests here at the Academy, playing varsity football for three years and lacrosse plebe year. After doing a fine job as class president youngster year, his classmates re- elected him during second class year. He enjoys fishing and wants to see Japan before he settles down to family life. ROBERT EVERET WAPLES Hot Springs, Arkansas From July 7, 1959, on, anyone could tell by that certain " laugh " that " Wap " was somewhere near in the halls of Bancroft. Bob, the son of a bandleader, hails from Anytown, U.S.A., but he settled down long enough to receive a competitive appointment to USNA through Georgia Military Academy. In sports Bob participated in swimming and sailed with the Ocean Sailing Squadron. Intellectually, he was a member of the Foreign Relations and Spanish Clubs. The fields of history and geography claim Bob ' s major interest in academics. His spirited drive, vivid sense of humor, and ability to take knocks on the chin will make Bob a particular asset to the Navy as a commissioned officer. Sixth Battalion 549 TRENWITH ROCKWELL WARD Clinton, Connecticut Tren came to USNA from Deerfield Academy in Deerfield, Massa- chusetts, where he took an active interest in football and track. He has shown himself to be a capable student and has taken advantage of the opportunities in the overload program, working towards a degree in Aeronautical Engineering. But it was not all books for Tren. He spent many hours chasing little white balls with the Plebe and varsity Lacrosse teams. Having never lived very far from the salt air and surf, he always enjoyed an afternoon of sailing on the bay. Now that he has completed his four years at the Academy as a Midshipman, Tren will begin his career as an officer in Naval Aviation. ARTHUR HENRY WEIDNER Rocky River, Ohio Born in San Diego, Art followed a family tradition in coming to Navy from Rocky River, Ohio, via Columbian Prep. " The Weed " was a most able participant in intramural sports especially in battalion football and company basketball. Many a night plebe and youngster year found Art gra ppling with his favorite subject. Dago, which he finally conquered. Art was always ready to render a helping hand in a game or in seriousness, and his reserved opinions and quiet manners were well received. Plebe year Art became famous on hundredth night when he received a comearound to the battalion officer for running the firsties too hard. Art ' s many contacts in the area kept his roommates well supplied with cookies and cakes, and weekends rarely found him in the hall. Quiet and easy going. Art ' s per- sonality won him many friends here at Navy, and he will surely carry the traditions of the Academy to and be a welcomed addition to any ship in the Navy. LARRY RAYMOND WHITE Waterloo, Iowa When " Whitey " left home in ' 58 to go to boot camp, he had no idea that his tour of duty would include a four year stay on the Severn. Havi ng gotten here, he put his head to minding his own business and to his studies. In the academic departments " Whitey " has done quite well for himself and his roommate whom he has tutored through skinny and math reexams. As far as sports go, " Whitey " was a plebe wrestler, though he has since limited himself to battalion and company sports, where he has been equally successful. When not tied up with studies, " Whitey " was usually found to be one of the first through the gate, heading for a certain special spot out in town. 550 Class of 1963 MICHAEL KEITH WHITMORE Long Beach, California Mike arrived with a California tan, a love for the outdoors, and an ever ready sense of humor, all of which only matured during his four years on the Severn. Seldom flustered by everyday problems or academics, Mike was always ready to lighten someone else ' s mood with an amusing quip. Mike ' s great love, mountain climbing, was never forgotten. Plans were always being made for the next climb. Besides enjoying a variety of sports he developed a devastating game of tennis, which he could always depend on to score with the fair sex. Mike ' s interests range far outside the basic curriculum into literature, poetry, art, philosophy, and psychology. His horizons are as unlimited as the mountains he climbs, he will always be an asset to those he serves. JOHN GLENN WILKINSON, JR. Newnan, Georgia Tall and fair, " Wink " is Georgia ' s gift to the class of ' 63- He came to USNA via Marion Military Institute in Alabama, so adapting to the military way of life was no problem. Athletically, " Wink " rows crew and is an avid Navy football fan. Not much for waking up right away in the morning, only the comics and a few cigarettes acted as a buffer zone between reveille and breakfast. Quiet by nature, the " Winker " spent most of his free time either sleeping or reading. At neither occupation can he be beaten. It ' s been estimated that he has read every best selling novel in the past five years. Girls are, of course, a favorite avocation. Only a need of rest keeps him from dragging every weekend. " Winker " is sure to be a success no matter what branch of the service he chooses. RICHARD ALEXANDER WILSON Elko, Nevada Wearing a friendly smile and filled with enthusiasm. Rich waved goodby to his beloved Nevada, and came to USNA for a four year cruise. Rich soon found his second home in Hubbard Hall where he spent most of his afternoons rowing on the Severn. His ability to apply himself, and his desire to learn resulted in academic success. Even so, Rich was never satisfied with his achievements and was constantly striving to do better. His smooth manner and likable ways helped him to make friends far and wide. This, mixed with his ambitious and " never say die " spirit, can only lead to a successful service career. Sixth Battalion 551 THOMAS DOMENIC YANNESSA, II Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Tom, fondly referred to by his classmates as the " Bear " , comes from LaSalle High School in Philadelphia. His outstanding ability at play- ing guard for LaSalle gained him a place on the All-State Football Team in Pennsylvania in the fall of ' 57, and a place in the Bullis Prep lineup in the fall of ' 58. The end of Tom ' s career came a little less than a year later when he suffered a knee injury in August of ' 59 while he was playing first string on the plebe team. Besides having a profound interest called Ocean City, New Jersey, Tom ' s interests and enjoyment lie in rock ' n roll, playing tricks and jokes on the unsuspecting, and laughing at some- thing called " birdisms. " Tom ' s amiable disposition and good humor, combined with his dedicated effort in sports and academics, have earned him the friendship and respect of his classmates. SHERWOOD ROW ZIMMERMAN Haddonfield, New Jersey Zimm came to the Academy on a congressional appointment from South Jersey. He found many new friends in his four year stay, however, no one was happier to see graduation time roll around. Zimm majored in nathematics and plans to continue his math study at post graduate school. He enjoys handball, lightweight football, and Softball, all of which he jarticipated in on the intramural level. He graduated from Haddonfield Vfemorial High School and is hoping for a real swinging class reunion. 552 Class of 1 963 BIOGRAPHIES SECTION INDEX - ALPHABETICAL Abate, R. P 500 Abbey, D.

Every mid- shipman participates in the programs as a member of either intercollegiate or intramural teams. Like every facet of acad- emy life, the sports programs serve to develop the midshipman mentally, morally, and physically. As the academic programs help the individual to grow in scholastic and intellectual ability, the sports programs lead to growth in competitive spirit, good sports- manship, leadership, character, and discipline. Competitive spirit and the desire to win are all important for an officer in the Armed Forces of the United States. Navy teams whether intercollegiate or intramural have always been known for their spirit regardless of how difficult the task ahead. Good sportsmanship and character are also qualities of Navy teams. A true man must be able to accept defeat when it becomes necessary and at the same time be ready to strive for victory at the next opportunity. The sports programs stress the importance of discipline of the body as well as the mind which only the pres- sures of competition can bring out. Each of these qualities is as indispensable to the naval officer as the technical knowledge of his job. Without these qual- ities he cannot be a leader of men that an officer must be. The midshipman adds to his development of character in these areas on the athletic fields where he learns to give his utmost and strive for victory. The Naval Academy ' s intercollegiate and intramural sports program are as important to the education of midshipmen as are the academic subjects. The whole man concept pervades every activity at the Academy. As the academic subjects help the mid- shipmen to grow in scholastic and intellectual ability so the sports program leads to a midshipman ' s growth in competitive spirit, good sportsmanship, leadership, and discipline. Team sports teach the midshipman to carry the responsibility of having others de- pend on him and they also teach him to have faith in the abilities of his teammates. Individual sports help to give self-reliance and require the midshipman to give his utmost. FALL SPORTS As the upperclass return from their various summer activities to join the newly-indoctrinated plebes, the thoughts of the Brigade invariably turn tovi ard the prospects for the fall sports season and the Navy football team. As the season progresses. Navy football becomes a part of each midshipman ' s being, for each of us feels that he joins the team on the field in spirit, if not in body. Varsity competition in soccer, one-hundred-and-fifty pound football, and cross country provide for the development of many and varied athletic skills and high standards of sportsmanship. The traditionally outstanding teams we have been privileged to see in these sports during our four year sojourn at Navy have kept Brigade support at a high level. When the last fallen leaves of autumn are covered by the first snow of winter, and the results of the tri- annual Army competition are being re-hashed with fond memories, it would be difficult to find in the Brigade a midshipman who do es not take great pride in the skill, courage, and sportsmanship displayed by our Navy fall sports squads. 561 if I L %1l NAVY FOOTBALL Head Coach Wayne Hardin Navy Captain Steve Hoy Knee ' ng (left to right): Jacl Cloud, Hugh McWilliams. % ar d nq: Schuette, Head Coach Wayne Hardin, Ernie Jorge and Rick Forzano.

Navy fans found a grey day in more ways than one when they journeyed to University Park, Pennsylvania, to see Navy face Penn State in the season ' s opener. A big, experienced Penn State team was eager to defend the Lambert trophy and justify their pre-season national ranking. With twenty returning letter- men, Penn State had the power needed to force Navy mistakes. Bad luck plagued Navy from the start as State scored early and often. Intercepting four Navy passes the Lions got the breaks and capitalized on them by scoring on one fumble and two interceptions. Bright spots for Navy were the two halfbacks, Jim Stewart, whose pass receiving was outstanding, and John Sai, who broke loose off tackle for a 35- yard scoring run in the second period. Peon State rolled up a final score of 41-7. Steve Szabo carries the mail for the big blue. Sai around the Indian flank. 564 Bouncing back following the Penn State loss, Navy took their second game from a surprisingly tough William and Mary team that made Navy work for its Homecoming victory. A crowd of 20,000 watched a real cliff-hanger as Navy halted a W M drive only 12 yards from paydirt in the last three minutes of the game to win 20-16. Leading until the last quarter when William and Mary went ahead 16-13, Navy had to score again and then dig in on defense to stop a determined drive by the fired up Indians. Outweighed again. Navy ' s defense gave up yardage grudgingly and threw William and Mary for several losses. During the game Navy forced two fumbles and intercepted three passes. A third W M fumble took a lucky bounce and set up the go-ahead fourth period score for the Indians. The Navy team was continually hurt by penalties at crucial times, both on offense and defense, and they needed every one of the three touchdowns. John Sai carried for one, and youngster Pat Donelly, whose fine rushing was one of the highlights of the season, " carried for the remaining touch- downs. A driving tackle applied by Navy ' s Fred Marlin. Ron Klemick is rushed tiard by ttie Gophers. Navy faced the unscored upon Gophers on their home ground and suc- cumbed by a combination of bad luck and penalties to a very fine Minnesota team. Minnesota went on during the season to remain nationally ranked and shutout five opponents. The excellent Big Blue defense held the Gophers again and again, but was forced to yield the yardage which netted Minnesota three touchdowns. This was Navy ' s finest performance of the year and only the big Minne- sota defense, fighting hard to remain unscored upon, as well as to win, prevented the Navy victory. Several times Navy knocked at the door, and each time the fine Gopher defense prevented the score. The Navy team, however, moved together better than at any other time during the season, and the game was looked upon as an omen of better things to come. 565 ' WW 1 . s M - " ' ° NAVY ' 62 VARSITY FOOTBALL SQUAD— Firsf Row (left to right): Steve Moore, Bob Sutton, Bob Orlosky, Venn Von Sydow, Steve Hoy, Ron Testa, Al Krekich, Steve Szabo and Kip Paskewich.

Matched against a team its own size, a newly shuffled Navy team routed Cornell. A record crowd at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium saw the Big Blue show its offensive and defensive strength. At the end of the game Navy had rolled up a score of 41-0. Navy scored six times from close in, the longest score being a thirteen-yard run by full- back Pat Donnelly. Roger Staubach showed fine form, which enabled him to win the starting quarterback slot. Roger, a youngster, sneaked for two touchdowns and passed for another. He completed 9 of 1 1 passes and carried 8 times for 89 yards. His best effort was a sparkling run of 68 yards, after he appeared to be trapped for a twenty yard loss. Cornell never penetrated beyond the Navy 37, completing only 3 of 10 pass attempts, with one interception, for a net gain of 3 yards. Cor- nell ' s offense for the game totaled 48 yards. Navy ' s team showed a great improvement both offensively and defensively by virtue of its overwhelming victory. Ron Testa and Bob Schaefer converge on the hapless Cornell quarterback. 567 At Boston College Navy mauled a much bigger B.C. team, which had not been defeated during the season in its home stadium. In a game that showed Navy ' s defensive power, B.C. was able to score only on a Navy fumble in the first quarter and never got inside the Navy 20. The highly respected air game never got off the ground. Boston College completed only one pass in eleven tries and had four attempts intercepted by an alert Navy backfield. The Navy offense made one of these interceptions and two fumbles count for scores. Roger Staubach threw for two touchdowns, one to Pat Donelly and the other to end Jim Campbell. Nick Markoff helped out with our third TD, and Pat Donelly carried for another; both were six yard runs. The Big Blue team showed its real superiority when a comedy of penalties made the situation second and 34 on the Navy 49. Roger Staubach, with all the time he needed, courtesy of the Navy line, brilliantly got us out with a pass to Jim Stewart and one to John Sai. Navy took it in for a touchdown, tying the game in the second quarter, and B.C. never recovered. The final score was Navy 26, Boston College 6. Navy went to the Oyster Bowl this season determined to avenge last year ' s humiliation at Pittsburgh, and that is exactly what we did! The slightly favored Pitt team looked good for the three points they were favored by for they scored a field goal on their first drive, but that was close to the last success they had all afternoon. Navy got the drop on Pitt with a controversial " sleeper " play on our first try from scrimmage. Jim Stewart took a Staubach pass and was all alone at the sideline going 66 yards for the score. A clever bit of acting s t it up; Jim limped to the sidelines but stayed inbounds as Dick Earnest charged en to the field. We went on to score four more times as Roger Stau- bach completed 8 passes in 8 attempts that went for 192 yards. Rog also carried 22 yards for a score and set up Bob Orlosky ' s two plunging scores and John Sai ' s three-yarder. Rog ' s stellar play earned him the outstanding player of the game award. tutttrnttumi t F " mu x Charlie Durepo pounces on a fumble. Bob Orhsky churns for one of two touchdowns.

In a rain that varied from a light drizzle to a heavy downpour. Navy ' s passing was seriously hurt, while the Irish succeeded in slogging out the yardage in the mud. Playing posses- sion ball, Notre Dame managed to grind out a few yards at a time against a stubborn Navy defense. The Irish scored once and carried a 7-0 lead off the field at half-time.

Navy bounced back and scored on a run by Johnny Sai. Then after an exchange of fumbles, Roger Staubach sneaked for another score. The rain worsened after Notre Dame, reduced to desperation passing, scored on a long pass following a fluke onsides kick. Navy was unable to move again and was forced to accept defeat at the hands of the Irish who were fired up after a series of losses to other top teams in the na- tion. The fine defensive unit had again put in a good performance but was hurt by the two long passes that led to Notre Dame touchdowns. The final score was Notre Dame 20, Navy 12. Ed Merino sprints to sidelines. A tough Syracuse team handed Navy a defeat, as once again we faced a larger op- ponent. Before a capacity Homeconning crowd at Syracuse, the fired-up Orangemen finally broke the string of bad luck that had cost them so many games, three by only one point. Taking advantage of the breaks and us- ing their weight advantage, the Orangemen ground out the yardage against the stubborn Navy defensive unit. Navy was hurt by penal- ties that stalled drives, and the Syracuse line put heavy pressure on Roger Staubach. Navy scored in two plays that went 75 yards, with a pass from Staubach to Dave Sjug- gerud eating up most of the yardage. One touchdown proved to be not nearly enough, however, for Syracuse scored five and Navy wound up on the short end of a 34-6 score. Ray Snyder rounds end. A determined Navy team made the trip to Los Angeles to face the undefeated and un- tied Southern Cal team, ranked first in the na- tion; and it was only with a generous portion of pure luck that the Trojans survi ved the inspired Navy onslaught. Scoring quickly after USC fumbled the kickoff on their own 22, Navy held on to a 6-0 lead until the end of the second quarter when a USC drive made the score 7-6. But Navy came back to the Southern Cal three yard line where a field goal atten pt went wide as the half ended. The outstanding Navy defense made SC play surprisingly sloppy ball for the number one team, for the Trojans fumbled four times and had a pass intercepted. The Trojan pass- ers were rushed hard, and their usually effect- ive quarterbacks completed only 6 of 19 at- tempts. A lucky break set up the second SC score, which followed after they retained pos- session on a roughing the kicker penalty in the third quarter. Navy knocked on the door for the tying or winning TD, but Lady Luck frowned on Navy this time. A goal line fumble with two minutes remaining saved the Trojans, but Navy was not done in, for Steve Hoy recovered a fumble on the Southern Cal forty. Time ran out with Navy again driving for the score. We were forced to accept the short end of a 1 3-6 score, though the loss boosted the morale of the Bri- gade and the team. An optimistic outlook pre- vailed, for we were now certain that two weeks hence Coach Hardin would have his charges ready for the big one with Army. 570 Vern Von Sydow and Larry Graham protect Staubach.

The ISO ' s had to start with a young squad this season, as gradua- tion had taken the bulk of last year ' s team. Three of their four losses were by one touchdown or less, whereas the wins were by wide margins. Captain Ray Kutch and his squad kicked off the season with a decisive 46-0 victory over Columbia. Scoring twice in every quarter ex- cept the third, the " Mighty Mites " rolled over their opponents with ease. In their second outing of the season the lightweights lost to a good Rutgers team by one touchdown 12-6. Navy scored first, but Rutgers ' excellent passing late in the game proved to be the decisive factor in their victory. One touchdown again made the difference in the ISO ' s third contest, as they lost to Princeton 13-7. Leading at halftime, 7-0, the Blue and Gold faced a determined Ivy League squad during the last two periods who, though meeting stubborn resistance, crossed our goal line twice. The ISO ' s second victory came on a 20-0 decision over Pennsylvania. Highlighting the game was Roger Granere ' s 80 yard touchdown run for the final 6 points. The lightweights suffered their third setback of the season by a 21-6 count at the hands of a good Cornell squad. Again Navy led at the half by one touchdown, but once more they were tumbled by a second half spurt.

The team scored more goals than any previous one, and this, coupled v ith tight teamwork and good plays, seemed to elicit more spectator interest in the sport than ever before. The back- bone of this rugged play and unbeatable spirit is easily found to be the captain, Don MacLaughlin. Don, called by Coach Warner, " one of the very finest team captains I ' ve ever worked with, " was truly a perfect example of a Navy sportsman for the team to follow. Karl Kaeser was a standout on the forward line, an Ail-American candidate, and was the top offensive threat to the Black Knights, as the Navy men looked toward their fourth consecutive victory over Army.

Opening the season with a solid victory over traditional rival Maryland, and following it the next week with a 15-46 rout of Pittsburgh University, the team took to the road for a triangular meet with N.Y.U. and St. John ' s of Brooklyn. When they returned, the season record had been upped to 4-0. Two consecutive defeats, at the hands of Penn State and George- town, provided the incentive for the triumph of the year. On Nov. 10, Navy won the Heptagonal Cross Country Championships. The next week they returned to New York to finish a respectable tenth in the IC4A Championships. Led all year by the consistent running of Captain Joel Heine, Miller Detrick, Jim Howard, Bob Sermier and Forrest Horton, and count- ing heavily on the depth provided by Howie Ginter, Max Ricketts, O. D. Thompson, Jim Tate, Lynn Wegner, Don Hackett and Bob Starkey, the 1962 harriers had one of their finest seasons ever. Navy Captain Joel Heine Row I: (left to right): F. Yeager, H. Ginter, O. D.

The outstanding games played by each of our teams were a fitting climax to the amazing record of victories over Army the class of ' 63 has seen in our four years at Navy. It was a tremendous effort on the part of the en- tire Navy football team that brought the Class of 1963 and Coach Wayne Hardin their fourth consecutive win over Army. Playing in Indian Summer weather at Philadel- phia Stadium before over 100,000 fans, including our Commander in Chief, Navy rolled up a 34-14 margin of victory. Youngster quarterback Roger Staubach directed the unleashing of an overwhelming offensive game that was backed by some of the hardest hitting defensive play seen in many a day. In a game marked by even more than the usual Army-Navy pre-game hullabaloo, talk of coaches, " Chinese Bandits, " " Jolly Roger " helmets, and white foot- ball shoes, was overshadowed by the magnificent perform- ance turned L _ (innelly surprised Army witri ard quick [the first quarter.

Even on the bleakest days of January and February, a great number of the brigade can be seen slushing through the mud and snow toward the brightly-lighted field house to watch another fine Navy basket- ball squad in action. A Winter Weekend brings a great variety of sports besides basketball to U.S.N.A. providing those who do not com- pete on a varsity level with top caliber spec- tator events. Crowds are always on hand to watch our gyni and swimming teams down their weekly victims. Wrestling and indoor track generate much interest, as do squash and fencing, and we have watched our traditionally unbeatable pistol and rifle teams methodically defeat one challenger after another in the four winters we of the first class have spent at Navy. The brigade boxers provide some of the fastest sports action available when they square off for the semi-final and final rounds of the brigade championships before a full house. The cold months hold a panorama of sports events, enjoyable by both participants and spectators, which make the " Dark Ages " not half so dark as they would be without our Winter sports teams. WINTER SPORTS 589 BASKETBALL Captain Ron Terwilliger and Coach Ben Carnevale The ' 63 basketball team, with only three returning lettermen, had to scramble to preserve Coach Ben Carnevale ' s record of never posting a losing record. The team beat Army in the finale to present Carnevale with a 9-9 record for the season. Among their victories was a win in the consolation game of the Milwaukee Classic against Utah. Two of the losses came at the hands of Eastern powers, and both were by nar- row margins. Navy lost to Temple by only one point and to Penn in an overtime. Captain Ron Terwilliger led the season scoring for Navy with a 15.1 average. John Mahoney, the second re- turning letterman, demonstrated a good outside shot and turned in some fine play. Late in the season the team was sparked by the field generalship and playmaking ability of Ben Ross. Rebounding chores were handled by Dave Konold. Several players played well in spots throughout the season, and showed much promise of better things to come. Among these were John Krechting, Hank Kettelhodt, and Mark Rein. In the four years the Class of ' 63 had cheered on the basketball teams. Navy had been a constant threat to knock off any team in the country. Coach Carnevale ' s deliberate of- fense and scrambling defense have taught opposing coaches to be wary when they meet Navy. Left 1o right.

Foremost among these was Gay Hopkins, who repeatedly lowered the Naval Academy and various pool records in his specialty, the free-style distance races. Gay is currently holder of the U.S.M.A. pool record for the 500-yard freestyle. Providing sup- port in the backstroke were Will Harris and Captain Pete Vermaire, while Art Roper adequately handled the diving job. Among the underclass was- Mike Collins, re- garded by some as one of the finest sprinters in the United States. Mike took his share of records and sparked the freestyle relay team, which turned in sev- eral fine performances. Along with Mike several other outstanding underclass, including Bill Fries, youngster backstroker, and Dave Hunter, a sprinter, provide a bright prospect for next year. Swimming its usual tough schedule, the team racked up victories over North Carolina, Columbia, Cornell, Pennsylvania, Westchester, and Duke during this season.

Minus only three letter winners, and sporting some good prospects from the previous season ' s plebe team, the grapplers opened their eight meet season against perennially strong Penn State, and came out of it with a 17-12 decision. In the next match, the last one be- fore Christmas leave. Coach Ed Peery ' s charges journeyed to Hempstead L.I., where they blanked a highly tauted Hofstra squad. After returning to the rigors of dieting and long hours of practice, they faced VPI, and captured their sec- ond shutout in a row. Riding on the crest of their 3-0 record, the Navy matmen met Syracuse in a match which loomed as a bat- tle for first place in the East, but lost a tough 20-10 de- cision to the very strong Orangemen. A two week layoff for exams sidetracked the team ' s drive temporarily, and when they left for Bethle- hem, Pa., to face defending conference champion Lehigh University, injuries and exams had taken their tolls. Losses to Lehigh University and to Maryland the following week- end brought their record to the .500 mark with three wins and three losses. With the Army match just two weeks away, and an undefeated Temple nine on tap the weekend before, the team primed itself for a maximum effort. The hard work paid off, as Temple was handed its first defeat in ten matches, and spirit on the squad rose to a new high. Competition for the starting berths against the Cadets was fierce, and indicative of the whole team ' s determina- tion to beat Army. 596 Front Row (left to right): Assistant Coach Al Richards, T. M.

What this squad lacked in experience, they made up in depth, skill, and unquenchable spirit. The first meet, against a strong CCNY team, set the tenor for the rest of the season when the team rolled them over for a 16-11 victory. The next five matches were taken in stride with a close 15-12 victory over Columbia. Then came the sweetest victory of all, 17-10 over NYU in their own territory, giving the Navy squad their fourteenth straight win and second consecutive undefeated season.

The Navy court- men, led by captain Bill Anderson, finished their season with a fine 10-3 record. Navy ' s only losses were suffered at the hands of Princeton, Pennsylvania, and Army, all by identical scores of 3-6. The outstanding player for Coach Art Potter this year was First Classman Lee Pekary, one of the finest courtmen in the country. Lee was undefeated until the Pennsylvania match, when he suffered a heartbreaking loss to Penn ' s number one man for his only defeat of the season. Playing second on the ladder was Second Class- man Clark " Corky " Graham who also had a very fine sea- son. This year ' s team also saw the fine play of team cap- tain Bill Anderson.

The match had to be decided in the standing rapid fire event, which Navy won 462-458. The team ' s only loss was a 12 point defeat by the Coast Guard Academy.

Sighting in. 603 GYMNASTICS Captain Ed Hutcheson and Coach Chet Phillips The gymnastics team was badly hurt by graduation last year. The team ' s fine spirit could not make up for this lack of experience in a tough sport which demands the utmost in physical conditioning and coordination. Despite high hopes, the team had a disappointing season. The picture was brightened by the fine per- formances of Bill Bowen on the parallel bar and a spirited team performance against a tough Pitt team. The expectations for next season are helped by a promising group of underclass. In 1963 head coach Chet Phillips was select- ed for the gymnastics hall of fame. Coach Phillips came to the Naval Academy in 1939 and is in his 24th season as head coach. Before the start of his coaching career, he had been six-event, all-around National Collegiate champion and a member of the American team at 1936 Berlin Olympic Games. Bottom Row: Mgr. C. P.

The team initiated the season by whipping the William and Mary In- dians. Navy then dropped a meet to Manhattan but bounded back the following week to down Penn State. In a triangle meet held in the Naval Academy Field House, the team beat Pittsburgh, but a strong Maryland team took top honors. The meet against Army was decided by the final relay and Navy lost by a hair. First classmen were prominent on this year ' s squad. Noel Bing, John Dohrman, and Dick Sidford were top middle-distance men, while Miller Detrick ran many excellent two-mile races for the Big Blue. Jim Thorell led all broadjumpers on the team. Doug Tozour proved one of the top men in the East in the 35-pound weight. Dick Nutt was a constant performer in the pole vault. Among the track talent prevalent in the classes of ' 64 and ' 65, such names as John Sai, Mike Berkowitz, Dick Merritt, Jim Howard, Courtland Gray, Roger Morgan, and Ed McLyman particularly stood out.

The Class of ' 63 was well represented in the final outcome of the championships, with four of the seven titles going to the First Class. Robbie Newton in 1 27 ' s, and Chuck Spadafora in the 165-pound weight class both retained the titles that they won last year, and Clay Dugas and Jay Madison won their titles in 135 ' s and 155 ' s for the first time. This is Clay ' s third Brigade Boxing Championship; he won the 127-pound title during both his Plebe and Youngster years. The other three classes were repre- sented by two-time Heavyweight Champion Tom Lynch, 2 c, 145-pound champion George Wilson, 3 c, and Light-heavyweight Champion Bill Spadafora, 4 c, who is Charlie ' s younger brother. This is the first time that two brothers have won Brigade Championships during the same year. The men who fought hard to unseat these men from the titles also deserve mention. In the finals. Second classmen Glenn Hodge, Art Parrott, Bill Lifsey, and Steve Roesinger, Youngster John Summa (last year ' s Lightheavy Champion), and Plebe Denny Craff and Al Motta all put up good fights before bowing to this year ' s Champions. In the semi-finals, held two weeks before the finals, the following men distinguished themselves by their efforts before going down in defeat; Joe Morra, Al Straupenieks, and Pete Optekar, First Class; Dale Hanson, Robin Wirsching, Dave Tornberg, Jim Roberts, Jim McDonald, Bob Senecal, and Russ Buck- ley, Second Class; Youngster John Padgett; and Plebes, Hal Sherrod, Mario Baltazar, and Wayne Hanley. All of the men who competed in the Championships, showed good spirit and desire and are to be commended in their efforts to win the coveted Brigade Boxing Championship. The Champions, who won the Varsity " N " for their successful efforts, all demonstrated a will to win that could not be denied. All of us who witnessed the Championship fights take our caps off to these men whose determination and skill put them on top. Kneeling: C. J. Dugas, and R. C. Newton. Standing: T. C. Lynch, W. H.

In the four events played at the Naval Academy, Navy emerged victorious in three, but the Black Knights of the Hudson duplicated the performance at West Point, where they also won three. Navy won in basketball, wrestling, pistol, and rifle, while Army took victories in squash, indoor track, swim- ming, and gymnastics. The Army-Navy basketball game always provides a spirited contest, and this year was no exception. Navy took an early lead and held a comfortable mar- gin until the Army defense shifted into a nerve-jangling press. When it appeared that the Navy offense was completely stalled, and Army was steadily closing the gap, youngster John Krechting came off the Navy bench to drop in seven straight points. Navy coasted the rest of the way and won their third basketball contest of the last four with Army by a 55-48 score. Ron Terwilliger led Navy ' s scoring with 15 points and played his usual outstanding game. The wrestling squad climaxed their season with an 18-9 win over Army. Fred Crawford, John Widhelm, Mike Harman, Gerald Franzen, Ron Tebben, and Earl Bishop all won their matches against the Black Knights. Dave Carey, who wrestled Army ' s Mike Natvig, lost his match on riding time after more than holding his own against the national champion in the 157-pound class. The pistol team fired an exciting match against the Black Knights, which wound up in an unusual 1369-1369 tie score. Navy won the match when the rapid fire scores of the highest five men on either team were summed up. The score of the tie-breaker was Navy— 462, Army— 458. High man for Navy was second class- man Line Smith, who fired with the team for the first time in 1963. Lee Pekary, Bill Anderson, and Cliff Burgess won their matches against the West Point squashmen, but those were the only victories Navy could muster as Army took a 6-3 victory in squash. The bottom half of the Army ladder showed surprising strength, and it was here that Navy lost the matches we had counted on winning. On the banks of the Hudson it proved a cold day for Navy, for we won only the rifle match of the contests played. The score of the rifle match was an- other close one, 1449-1447. Youngster Denny Johnson was the high Navy shooter with 292 points out of a possible 300. It was the second consecutive victory over Army for the Navy riflemen. The Navy track team lost a 56 2 3 to 52 1 3 heartbreaker to Army. On the trip to West Point the team had set as its goal the first victory ever in a duel indoor track meet with Army, but they were denied the victory by a combination of the hard-charging Army cindermen and the flu. Sluggish with antibiotics, we were forced to accept third places that would have normally been firsts or seconds. Miller Detrick and Jim Howard turned in fine performances for Navy. The best Army swimming team ever outclassed a game Navy squad and wound up on the long end of a 69-26 score. Gay Hopkins of Navy won the 500- yard freestyle and set a new pool record in doing it. Mike Collins tied the Army pool record in winning the 50-yard freestyle. The Navy 400-yard freestyle relay team of Les Heselton, Chuck Wright, Dave Hunter, and Mike Collins set a new American record as they defeated Army in the last race of the afternoon. The Navy gym team was defeated 651 2 to 301 2 by a superior Army team. Outstanding in the defeat were Navy ' s Ed Hutchenson on the high bar, Sandy Munro and Larry Silver on the still rings, Dick Murphy on the side horse, Bill Kelly on the parallel bars, and Art Day and Bobby Giddens in free exercise.

The spring season is annually climaxed by the third and final Army-Navy Sports Weekend of the year. In the four years we of the Class of ' 63 have been attending the spring competition with Army, we have seen more than our share of fine perform- ances turned in by Navy teams. The final lacrosse game with Army has been the deciding factor in determining the National Intercollegiate Champion in each of the past three years. Twice Navy won, while we once shared the title with our rivals from the Hudson River Area. In addition to the outstanding la- crosse teams we have been privileged to watch in action. Navy has come up with some other mighty fine teams. The baseball team won two Eastern League Championships and beat Army in each of our first three years. Navy heavyweight and 150-pound crew squads are always among the best in the country, and the squads we saw were no exception. Tennis, golf, track, and dinghy sailing have also provided the Brigade with some teams to be proud of in the past four years. During the course of a weekend, when it is Spring- time on the Severn, it is the rare midshipman indeed who cannot be seen escorting his favorite drag to a Navy sporting event and taking pleasure in watching one of the blue and gold teams defeat another oppo- nent. SPRING SPORTS 621 GOLF ' , . I 1 At the beginning of the season. Coach Bob Williams said, " The teann looks for a very good season. " And all indications seemed to bear him out. With six of seven regulars returning from the ' 62 team, the prospects for a fine season were very good indeed. Tom Haney, who tied for top individual record on the team in 1962, captained the 1963 squad. Jim Koehn was the other first class letterman. Also expected to bolster the team were second classman Jim Seely, Craig Burbick, and Tom Flory.

There was an abundance of returning talent from the teams that won two consecutive Eastern League titles and lost only four games in two years. Chuck Galloway, shortstop and captain of the team, led a group of first classmen who contributed much to the success of Navy baseball during the three years they competed for the varsity. Included in this group were second baseman Ron Ter- williger, third baseman Ron Reihel, outfielder Pat Roney, pitcher Dan Hennessy, and infielder Bob Campbell. The team appeared to have the depth and experience needed to again threaten for the Easterns.

Coach Bill Bilderback expected the 1963 lacrosse squad to be one of the strongest teams he had fielded. This was quite an expectation considering that in his four years as head coach, Bilderback has seen Navy win or have a share in the national intercollegiate title three times. Don MacLaughlin of ' 63 and second classman Pete Taylor, two All-Americans in ' 62, led the returning midfielders. Another All-American selection, Captain George Tracy, triggered the Attack group which included such stellar performers as Ted Willandt, Dudley Hendrick, Arnold Glassner, and Bill Oatway. Veterans John Long and John Newton, first class, returned this year on defense to add depth and experience to the traditionally outstanding Navy lacrosse team. The ' 63 club looked like a sure bet to again threaten for national honors. ■ijff t : il J.t First Row (I. to r.): Coach Bilderback; Frank Spangenberg; John Newton; Winston Peterson; George Tracy; Don MacLaughlin; Arne Glassner; Dud Hendrick; Ted Willandt; Capt.

Corky Graham and Sandy Beall of the Class of 1964 were two of the underclass that were looked to for continued fine play. At the outset of his first season as Navy tennis coach.

For the excellent aerial color photog- raphy that has been used throughout the book, we are indebted to Mr. Robert Yarnall Richie. The capable, willing, and patient assist- ance of Mr. Fred Koger, Mr. Henry Wittich, Jr., and Mr. Henry Wittich, III of Taylor Publishing Company made a reality of our many plans. The excellent photography furnished by Mr. Bryant Baker and Mr. " Buck " May of Harris and Ewing Studios added another professional touch to make our book the finest. Certainly our efforts could never have been completed without the guid- ance and direction of our officer representative, Captain Paul D. Slack, USMC. Many PIO officers in the various commands through- out the East coast gave freely of their pictures of our class. We are especially indebted to the aircraft carriers USS Enterprise and the USS Kearsarge for the excellent photographs they furnished us. We owe a great deal to our own PIO office for the services they provided our photography staff. To all of these gentlemen and the many silent and helpful members of our class, we of the LUCKY BAG staff give our strongest appreciation. 704 Advertisements DAVID B. ROBINSON Section Editor ■ffj ' . f ■ ■ - -— )fc— »» J§ %r w ' " ' ' m .wr,i rsE™ i W r-SS Keeping pace with the ever increasing technological de- mands of our complex world has become a tantamount objective of our modern Navy. In order to keep its place as the foremost world sea power, it has become necessary for the navy to adopt more and more sophisticated weapons, navigation, and engineering systems. This has been— and will continue to be— a task of tremendous magnitude. It calls for imagination, in- itiative, and dedicated labor. Some of this has been supplied by naval personnel— but the great strides that have been made could not possibly have come to pass without the cooperation of our great American industrial community. To them must be given a great majority of the credit for the technical excellence of the United States Navy. This, the final section of the 1963 Lucky Bag, is dedicated to the industries of America, and to the men and women who continue to serve them, and in so doing, serve the Navy. Our thanks to them for their untiring efforts, and for their interest and contributions to our yearbook. All of us, as we proceed through our service careers, will have occasion to come in contact with one or more of these outstanding organizations. It is the sincere wish of the Class of 1 963 that the spirit of cooperation and friend- ship which now prevails will continue, so that the industries of the United States and our Navy will both continue to be fore- most in the world.

Bell originated this revolutionary V STOL, is now building it for the U. S. Navy. Designated the X-22A, this compact, high- performance research transport will have speeds up to 350 m.p.h. . . . will be capable of carrying six passengers or a 3800-pound load with full fuel. The jet-powered, ducted fan, rotatable propeller units make this craft completely independent of runways ... a capability that will open the door to many new military and commercial applications. It is not surprising that this unique concept originated at Bell, because Bell created and built the X-14 for the U. S. Air Force ... the first jet-powered horizontal-attitude VTOL craft to take off vertically, transition to normal horizontal flight and then hover and land vertically. A modified version, the X-14A, serves NASA ' s Ames Research Center today as a lunar landing training vehicle . . . has inter- esting possibilities as a ground support aircraft ... is the only two-place jet VTOL presently being flown anywhere in the world.

A fleet of nuclear submarines cruising somewhere beneath the Seven Seas is keeping a watchful eye on Peace. Each submarine car- ries sixteen Polaris missiles — powerful sen- tries — whose arming and fuzing systems were designed and manufactured by Avco. Avco ' s Ordnance Division works as a team with the Naval Ordnance Laboratory to de- velop the detonation equipment for these fleet ballistic missiles. Their joint efforts were proved on May 6, 1962, when the United States successfully test-fired a " live " Polaris. Avco received the U. S. Navy ' s coveted Cer- tificate of Merit for its work on Polaris. Avco is proud to have a part in this important de- fense program as well as other missile pro- grams to which it is contributing some of its arming and fuzing know-how.
