ECCLESI ASTES . 1, 2; XII, 3 Four years ago. we entered a new world. A new generation had inherited the earth . . . new faces, new nations, new alignments of power. It was a time of new ideological confrontations, new friendships, new enemies. It was the beginning of the New Frontier and the threshold of the future. We observed within months the embrace of Khruschev and Tito at the Belgrade airport and the equally cordial, if less demonstrative, welcome accorded each leader here. We heard of Moishe Tshombe and the tortured death of Lumumba in the confusing Congo conflict. We mourned Hammarskjold and experimented with pronunciations of U Thant. Rapidly changing interest was focused on Havana, Katanga, Berlin, Saigon, Laos. DeGaulle rose eminent, stern and remote from a glittering Citroen to declare France ' s independent destiny. The Shah of Iran at long last had an heir, while the English throne collected a few more. A weary MacMillan was replaced by Sir Alec and Erhard assumed Adenauer ' s long-held Chancellorship. We saw Communism at odds with everyone, but peculiarly with itself, as angry relations between Peiping and Moscow made headlines. Christine Keeler nearly rocked an Empire and who in this world was Madame Nhu? Pope John died, and with age-old panoply, a new one took his beloved place. The Ecumenical Councils pondered; the Common Market was established. China was at war, it seemed, with India. The polished halls of the United Nations brightened with colorful robes and headdresses. Leadership gestured elegantly with educated hands or pounded with angry fists. The voice of conflict spoke Chinese. Russian, French, Oxford English or the curious Harvard dialect, newly familiar. It was a world of men struggling to assert themselves, as they have since time began, yet their voices were louder, more aggressive, more quarrelsome. It was a new world, yet curiously old. J 1 ' " 1 From the ocean ' s depth ' s came man and inhabited the earth. Like the tides in which he was born he brought changes . . . 7 ■ nrilta I • ■ ' ■ ?f When is tlie tirae foi)i themselves in thea and their country] JDrave men to exert le fj ause of liberty f this is not? 59 George Washington, 1775 It was a time of man ' s declaration of his personal liberty as never before. The emotional oratory of Martin Luther King sparked a rush of sit- ins and wade-ins, of Freedom Rides and the dominance of CORE. The nation ' s mood was shaped on a Southern lunch counter and school dis- tricts rocked with disagreement. Americans picketed, paraded, marched on Washington. In the heritage of those who ran a Tea Party, they did it in the name of liberty. It was a time of conflict and disagreement, between labor and manage- ment, Congress and the White House, the States and the Federal Govern- ment. Crippling strikes swept everything from the newspaper to the bagel industry. An Executive stop was put on steel prices and Telstar, ultimate achievement of private enterprise, rode the skies. It was the TFX contro- versy and a Congress embattled. It was investigations, sub-committees and the exposure of Cosa Nostra, Billie Sol Estes and the dangers of cigarette smoking. It was a time of triumph, as our astronauts orbitted the earth, our hearts soaring breathless with them into the mysteries of outer space. It was a time of crisis. The intangible Iron Curtain became a barbed wire tangle, then a great stone wall stretching more than thirty miles through divided Berlin. One Monday night, we learned there were Russian missiles in Cuba. It was a time of despair, confusion, and an increasingly difficult foreign policy. It was a time of violence. Three shots echoed crisply on a Dallas street and the President lay dead, a warrior fallen under fire. A shocked and subdued nation gathered its strength as our new President, drawn, already weary and deeply saddened, searched for the words to ask our help and that of God. So we, who had paraded at the triumphant inauguration of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, accompanied him, to the somber, muffled drums of his funeral procession, across the bridge to historic Arlington. The world ' s flags flew sadly at half-staff and candles were kindled, as his Eternal Flame burned, a reminder of man ' s faith in the future and his love of what had died. So we came to a new time, an uncertain one. The future lay before us, the New Frontier behind, and we as a nation, carried on. J3T As the seas raged against the earth ocean and land now fused now torn, so man met conflict Struggle and peace became the alternating tides of history. m ?? Tlie advantage of time in all martial actions A - }f ■-M 1 ' — " ' " r 1 ! I and place is half a victory . . Sir Francis Drake to Queen Elizabeth i, i 5 8 8 9 At a new Frontier we stood, a nation ready and eager to plunge into new and undeveloped areas of thought and action. Our President had told us at his In- auguration that our frontier life would demand sacrifice, as it had of another gener- ation, and we were prepared. For it was not a peaceful world. It was a time when, with crisis points ranging from Berlin to Saigon, from Havana to the Formosa Straits, the Navy was called upon to display its constant readiness for four-ocean defense, a mighty challenge to the intelligent deployment of ships, equipm ent and forces around the world. The Berlin Wall called the Navy to action, as did missiles discovered in Cuba. Reserve and regular ships and personnel cruised the waters off the German coast in support of divided Berlin, patrolled the tense Caribbean boundaries of the quarantine watch, and were rushed to readiness in Vietnamese waters after a successful military coup in that nation ' s tormented capital city. As crisis built on crisis, erupting now and then from restless peace to breathtaking urgency, the Navy was there. Responding with an enormous and varied arsenal of weapons, the Navy used everything at her command, from her oldest aircraft carrier to her newest . . . from ESSEX to ENTERPRISE, nuclear powered and mammoth. We saw three super- carriers commissioned along with a giant assortment of nuclear-armed guided missile cruisers, destroyers and submarines. For the Navy it was the beginning of a new era, built secruely on the foundations of time-tested methods and concepts. We saw the first Polaris subs go on station deep beneath the earth ' s waters, a major deterrent to nuclear war while demonstrations against them raged at Holy Loch. We saw the first astronauts catapulted into outer space atop flaming rockets, and recognized with pride that many of them were Navy personnel. We saw con- troversy in the Pentagon and on Capitol Hill over the TFX and the need for another nuclear carrier. We marvelled at the giant new Phantoms and Vigilantes in oper- ation with the fleet. We read newspapers filled with new terminology, new and incomprehensible statistics and new confidence, and felt part of it. It was a demanding time for the Navy, but they were equal to it. m m fcl We cannot mourn the ebbing tide as soon the flow will rush to land. So man has learned, eternal conflict is perpetual growth. Today ' s struggle is tomorrow ' s strength. i ■ m —iwss RffPws - ' rmm? - ■ - «_. £ • v Jj Ex Scientia Tridens- i isProra Knowledge, Seapower. I Park Benjamin, i 8 6 j motto of the United States Naval Academy Today ' s struggle is tomorrow ' s strength might well have been our motto instead of the Latin, Ex Scientia Tridens. For it was a struggle to keep up with an Annapolis which, in our time, was changing as fast as we. The landscape of change was clear. Scaffolding blanketed Bancroft Hall; piles of dirt marred roadways. Wing after wing of our Hilton was modernized, keeping battalions on the move. The race between the diggers and the fillers assumed giant proportions and became apparently, a permanent Annapolis tradition. Like every class before us. and probably every one after, we considered our- selves unique. The years we spent on our campus on the Severn reflected so many firsts and lasts that it could never again be the same school. We saw an end to marching to class, symbolic of a newly academic atmos- phere. We saw Navy triumph over Air Force, in their first football contest, and win five years straight against Army. We lived with the phenomena called Joe Bel lino and Roger Staubach. and the rise of the Thirty Eight Hundred, largest football team in the country, till it was replaced by the Forty One Hundred. We were the first class never to study a gun at the Academy, first to study computers as a course, first to have a cruise in Westpac, first with Trident Scholars. We were the last class to take a two months Youngster Cruise and the old style second class summer. We were the first class to take full advantage of overloads and validations permitting us to take a major and a full program of electives. We saw Rugby initiated as a sport and a new system for barbershop appointments. We heralded the opening of the Parole Shopping Center, and puzzled over a new grading system. We delighted in a new flow of cash for pay as credit policies were dis- continued. We held Operation Sea Breeze afloat and the Ring Dance ashore. NAVFAC and Headcheck Jose became part of our terminology. From this breath of change would come winds of increased knowledge. From our knowledge today, seapower tomorrow. pEHjaC W- " We are part of man ' s perpetual renewal of strength. This strength is knowledge, accumulated for us in the course of time. So we become, In of eternity mirror 31 11 3ur Time, an imae:e 3rtng all of mankind We have lived, in our time, by tradition. As a class, we have shaped Anapolis, creation of more than one hundred years, into an experience uniquely our own. We have treated our traditions as a precious and respected legacy, brought to new life by our actions, to give us organization, strength, dignity, purpose and spirit as a unit ... the Class of 1964. Yet, our time has been governed as well, by the wind of change which has swept the school. It has blown us all about a little, at times confused us, causing us to wander, blurring the clearly defined patterns of thought and action which have set the models of performance and standards for other classes before us. Some have said, therefore, that these changes have shattered tradition, but we who have lived with them as they began know they were not borne on a destroying wind. The changes which have been our time have not broken and torn the heritage of a century; rather, they have shaped anew, much like the tides of ocean and of time. It can be said that the constant ebb and flow erodes the land, tear ing from it life and strength to be carried out to sea. Others can see that the seas and the ages have been creative, sculpting, redefining, carving, molding the continents into everchanging forms. So we have been reshaped, redirected, made to fit more closely into the particular needs of our time. As with the new buildings rising steadily in the yard, destruction was only a means to an end and apparent eradication of the past only the prelude to a newly constructed future. From the new complexity and variety of our academic program has come new needs, new ideas, new ways of doing things. Change has been the inevitable result of the huge efforts being made to enrich our learning, increase our potential as Naval officers and thus magnify the service we will be able to render to the country which has given us our education. Change has surged over us; cleansing, alte ring, transforming. We leave behind not debris, but newness, on which future classes may help create the continually changing Naval Academy of which we are a small part. As we have always been, as a class, one image of the eternity of Annapolis, today we are more and more the image of all of mankind, reflecting in our education not only the great heritage of the sea, the naval service and this Naval Academy, but also of the world ' s great thinking and magnificent accomplishments. From this, we can better create and reflect the image of tomorrow ' s world. i But unlike the tides controlled by the stars, we are not bound to fixed limitations. The future, a constant tide, ebbing and flowing is ours to determine.

McDONALD Chief of Naval Operations ftl 2] W i ti n He told us time and time again, " You can do any- thing you set your minds to do " and we could, because he was there to lead us. He told us we were the " greatest bunch of guys in the world, " and if we were, it was because he gave us a clear goal at which to aim, a hope that someday we could be half the officer he is. He was our " Uncle Charlie " a name spoken with the utmost love and respect. Many of the changes that have taken place in the past two years took place because Rear Admiral Kirk- patrick had the vision to see that they were needed and the drive to see that they were made. He wanted the old style midshipman training squadron back in the Atlantic Fleet, and went to CINCLANTFLT to get it. He wanted a new standard of academic excellence and to help him achieve it, he created the post of Dean. Pep rallies never seemed to click until " Uncle Charlie " made his appearance . . . and then we went wild. If the Forty-One Hundred had a single living embodiment of its spirit, the Admiral was it. He was the team ' s most loyal supporter and his enthusiasm never slackened. Though we were sad that the Academy was to lose his warm and close touch, his special aura of friendship and spirit, we would never forget his pres- ence. In the future it will be sufficient to say, " I served with Charles Kirkpatrick.

McNITT Secretary of Academic Board Of all the changes that have taken place at the Naval Academy since the arrival of the Class of 1964, none has been so far reaching or all encompassing as those in Academics. Starting with the oppor- tunity to validate numerous courses and to major and climaxing in the pilot program for the Trident Scholar Program and PhD. prese- lection, the Class of ' 64 has been involved in the very heart of the academic revolution. From the highly theoretical aspects of ad- vanced mathematics to the more practical application of learning on Operation Seabreeze, we kept our minds and slide rules busy analyzing problems set up to encourage thinking instead of tra- ditional formula plugging methods. New standards for officers assigned as instructors raised the level of instruction throughout while the fine instruction by the civilian professors continued its usual high quality. The class rose to the challenge, compiling one of the finest records academicly in the history of the Academy. The change in marking systems first class year further encouraged study by preventing the person with minimum passing marks in all subjects from graduating. Still ' 64 pushed on setting records of top performance and learning much in the process. . • CAPTAIN J. V. ROWNEY Director of Science and Engineering CAPTAIN H. A. SEYMOUR Director of Naval Science CAPTAIN L. V. YOUNG Director of Social Sciences and Humanities The Department of ENGLISH HISTORY and GOVERNMENT Term Papers, the first thought that comes to mind with a mention of the " Bull " Department, cloud the number of enjoyable hours spent arguing foreign or fiscal policy in the classroom. Once you got past Plebe Year Literature, classroom discussions were gen- erally spirited and involved nearly everyone. Modern European History was followed by U. S. Diplomatic History,, Government, Economics, Naval History, and Advanced Literature. Keeping us even busier on top of the usual reading assignments were book reports, the financial paper second class year, and that last minute Term Paper. The number of mids taking Bull electives was always large and the topics covered were many and varied. No matter what, we couldn ' t win. In the same year, the Academy was soundly blasted editorially by a national magazine for disregarding the Humanities and attacked with equal fervor by an Ad- miral who thought too many of us wasted our time on " reading " courses in EH G.

The Department of FOREIGN LANGUAGES Offering the only choice in the basic curriculum, the " Dago " Department could teach us to get around in any one of six different languages. Whether your choice was French, Spanish, Russian, Portuguese, Ger- man, or Italian, you could learn what you needed to know from " Put over the bow line. " to something more practical like " You say you have an older sister, little girl? " A leader in teaching techniques, the Department of Foreign Languages utilized sound labs, play acting, and constant practice sessions to insure that in two years we learned enough to have a firm foundation in the language of our choice. Many took advantage of electives, both to increase proficiency and to try for a spot on one of the Foreign Exchange Cruises first class year. Active Foreign Language Clubs kept the languages alive for those of us who chose not to study them formally after the second year. Banquets where only the foreign tongue was spoken provided an enjoy- able method of keeping in practice. Then there was always the visit of the Miss Universe contestants sec- ond class summer to provide incentive to dust off forgotten phrases. It is fortunate for most of us that English is becoming a universal language. LCDR P. Clement, French Navy; J. D. Yarbro, Senior Professor; Captain C. T. Cooper III, USN, Department Head.

The Department of MATHEMATICS It is intuitively obvious to the advanced student that the Department of Mathematics should occupy buildings known by number only. Often the immediate application of a strange theorem was not apparent; sooner or later that theorem was bound to find its way into a Skinny or Steam assignment. Certainly the method of teaching nearly everything at the Academy in terms of mathematics made the Math Department one of the more important even though one of the more difficult. Setting new clothing styles (for 1928) the pro- fessors showed that they were among the most able at Navy in getting concepts across to rock-headed Mids. Getting to classes in Math often presented a major problem in Navigation. Not only were the walks around buildings 133 and 286 in a constant state of being dug and filled, but also the Department had a nasty habit of scheduling their sections according to a revolving daily schedule of rooms in Maury, Melville, Griffin, and even Ward Halls. The proof was everything is left to the student. CDR A. A. Folop, USN, Department Executive Officer; Captain Edgar A. Robie, USN, Department Head; L. H.

Gone are the days of boilers and wings for classes in Thermodynamics and Aeronautics, with the emphasis on theory. Always good for the regularly scheduled P-Work (fifth period every Monday A Week), the men of Isherwood could still find plenty of time to explain at the end of lab period that of course you had to make certain assumptions to solve the problem. There still remain many graduates firmly convinced that a Mollier Chart is best solved pinned to a dart board. It was all made easier when someone wound up the turbojet in Melville Hall and cut in the afterburner just as you tried to find another approach to a problem in the room above. Anyone is invited to try and define " entropy " and then explain it to a bucket section. There are many who claim it can ' t be done. •tr a Jr i ■tV« R. M.

" with a classic " It ' s all magic! " That probably comes as close as anything to explaining our understanding of most of what went on in Sampson Hall. From the classical determinations of the acceleration of gravity to advanced concepts in theoretical nucleonics, the Science Department fielded them all. We studied Chemistry as Plebes, Physics as Youngsters, and a mixture of Electricity and Electronics in Second and First Class. The elective program went far beyond and the sky was no longer a limit. Final exams in " Skinny " were always a terrifying adventure for all, with the exam format never the same as the last time. Many of us as still trying to forget the one hundred seventeen true or false questions that made up the Electrical Circuits final. Four years of Skinny can probably best be summed by saying they were hard, often frustrating, but potentially very useful. CDR R. A. Swensen, USN, Department Executive Officer; Cap- tain J. S.

Out went the old guns, in came the new missiles, but which new missile? Since today ' s ultimate weapon is tomorrow ' s antique, it was neces- sary to try and teach principles, yet even these princi- ples were in constant tlux. No one really knew where he was going, but he went at full speed. Butt of nearly every joke in the 1964 Trident Calendar, the Weapons Department nevertheless strove gallantly forward towards an indefinite future, firmly convinced that whatever it was, an IBM 1620 could solve it.

I ?:fl ' i The Department of PHYSICAL TRAINING There were those who thought that PT was the most important department going, there were those who dreaded every class, and there were few in be- tween. Why did they always have to sched ule swim- ming during February and the mile run right after lunch? The stories are legion and it was sufficient only to repeat an oft heard comment to get a laugh. " Up, out, and together. " " Now in a given fight situation. " " It won ' t count until your chin is over the bar. " Swim- ming, wrestling, boxing, gymnastics, hand-to-hand, physical conditioning, applied strength, and the agility course followed one another year after year with no requirement that we get in shape before the tests, but a brutal conditioning squad for those who didn ' t. It wasn ' t all drudgery. We had periods of tennis and squash, badminton and handball. Stick fighting was a pleasant way to get rid of aggressions while learning a deadly art. From warm-ups to getting back into whiteworks, the periods never slackened. Professor A. J. Rubino; Captain W. S. Busik. USN, Director of Athletics; CDR J. S. Donaldson, USN, Executive Officer; E. E.

MC, USN; HMCS D. Pelletier, USN, Assistant Administrative Officer. Home of the APC (All Purpose Capsule) and Excused Squad Chit for days when we had swimming in PT, the Medical Department worked diligently for four years to keep us going to classes no matter how sick we felt we felt. Ever experimenting with new and devious ways to innoculate four thousand unwilling arms, Bancroft Medical started with the old hypoder- mic method, switched to the high pressure gun which required that we hold our arms rigidly to our sides so the serum would enter our rib cages after it passed through our arms, and then came up with the classic system. Now, in order to get paid, we have to extend our other arm for the " shot of the month. " From the first time it was tried, the problem of getting us all to show up for shots was eliminated. Without a doubt, the only disease from which we can possibly die is serum poisoning: we ' ve been shot through and through for everything else. Actually, the efforts of the Medical Department have paid off in the Brigade being one of the healthiest group of four thousand young men anywhere. Not limited to purely pathological work, surgery from shoulder to knee operations was per- formed in the Naval Hospital located ominously next to the cemetery. Prime determinate as to who went Navy Air, the eye clinic was wise to our tricks and deaf to our pleading. Caps will be removed in Sick Bay in memory of those who . . Capt. Stanmeyer, Sr. Dental Officer DENTAL There seems to be a requirement that a dentist may not ask any question requiring a detailed answer until he has filled your mouth with all sorts of gadg- ets and gear. The Dental Department really does a tremendous job both ef- ficiently and well, utilizing the latest techniques and pain deadeners. Un- fortunately they picked this past year to try and outdo the Executive Depart- ment in the number of conduct reports originated. As a result, the good will engendered by competent dentists was clouded by a constant procession of mids statementing Forms 2 to the effect that they were not in this recitation group or that battalion and hence hadn ' t really missed their X-rays after all. To be " in " second class year, you had to be wearing braces and snapping elastic bands with your tongue as the Dental Department improved appear- ances by straightening teeth through- out the Brigade. Rubber mouthguards for everyone was a part of the program of preventive dentistry practiced by the professional staff. We were fortunate, civilians never had it so good. CHAPLAINS Watching the exuberance of the Brigade on liberty, one gets the impres- sion that midshipmen live wildly for the present. Or, while attending a chapel service at the Academy for the first time, one often feels that a big show and not a service is in progress. However, the casual visitor has only to look slightly deeper to discover the deep and sincere faith in God of the Brigade. The success of such organizations as the OCU, the NACA. and the Newman Club as well as the attendance at Lenten Services and early mass show the interest and concern that midshipmen share in things spiritual. Teaching and advising the Brigade are five chaplains who are always avail- able to discuss whatever topic may arise. The patient manner of these officers is both comforting and reassuring in times of stress. The chapel services are really very inspiring and beautiful as soon as the awe of it all wears off. Our first official social function plebe summer was a reception at the home of Chaplain and Mrs. James Kelly and from this and many other contacts the chaplains maintain their closeness to the Brigade and its feelings. Left to right: Chaplains Wuebbens, Reaves, Sullivan, Cahill, Van Tassel EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT The average midshipman views the officers of the Executive Department as fulfilling their functions with a sword in one hand and a Form 2 in the other. Actually, their responsibilities range far and wide, but all center around making the Academy run a little more efficiently for the Brigade. Whether we are boarding buses for away football trips, drawing pay, buying in the store, signing the ED list, or getting a myriad of forms processed, the procedure has been planned and the end result will be scrutinized by someone in the Executive Department. Trying to keep ahead of four thousand young men, all of whom are trying to keep ahead of them, can often be a tiring and frustrating job. Most midshipmen won ' t waste much sympathy for this until they suddenly need Emergency Leave and realize that the big organization on Four-One works for them— not against them. Capt. K. C. Brown Executive Officer Lt. J. P. Holm First Lieutenant, Bancroft Hall SOCIAL DIRECTOR Mrs. James Marshal A place of warmth in the chill of the Executive Department was the office of Mrs. James Marshall, officially the Social Director and unofficially " housemother " to the forty one hundred. Whether your problem was June Week Housing for your girl, or finding a girl you observed once months ago and couldn ' t track down, Mrs. Marshall was always ready to be of friendly service. Her book of Drag House accom- modations ranks as one of the most important reference works at the Academy and her skill at suggesting just the right thing for your likes and wallet were unsurpassed. Forever determined that rank shall not exist in her office, Mrs. Marshall treated all alike. While the Office of Social Director has only existed since 1959, Mrs. Marshall ' s experience goes beyond five years. The wife of a Naval Officer killed on duty and the mother of a graduate in the class of ' 62, Mrs. Marshall knows and understands midshipmen often better than we understand ourselves. Certainly her presence has made our four year stay much more pleasant and enjoyable. 6a 4 FIRST COMPANY SECOND COMPANY THIRD COMPANY FOURTH COMPANY MIDWATCH It is midnight, and a new calendar day has just begun. The old midshipman day is slow in going, however, as there are still those last few pages to cram into memory, that last exam problem type to review, the endless routine of striper paperwork to complete and then, wel- come oblivion. Or perhaps, it ' s Saturday night, when the day comes to a close as slowly as possible, stretching to the very last minute those precious hours of liberty. Then, we join the " Flying Squadron " for the dash past the OOD. Even during those hours when sleep comes at last, the routine continues. In the Main Office, they wait for the phone call that means trouble . . . while the MAA waits for the call that all is secure in the Wings. In the galley, tomorrow begins early, as meals are prepared for the hungry Brigade that will awaken at 0615. Outside, in the deserted Yard, Marines and Guard Force maintain security. The Academy ex- periences one of its few quiet moments. • 0 r t r«,£sk tmnmmimlt BRUCE ALLEN ABEL Bruce 1st Company Bruce came to the Academy straight from high school in the Pittsburgh area. Acclimat- ing himself to military life provided enough problems to keep him busy during his plebe summer, but when the academic year rolled around, Bruce concentrated his time and energy on football and academics. During his following three years Bruce spent most of his time on the football field as a quarter- back on the Big Blue team where most of his happy times and fond memories find their origin. Never a " star " man by a longshot, academics presented the usual problems to Bruce but he always managed to keep one jump ahead of them. His most frustrating moments were caused by his " mystery " courses in electricity and electronics. His future plans are not quite certain but Navy Air appears most inviting. Whatever path he chooses to follow, however, we are sure it will lead to nothing but bigger and better things for him. JAMES MATTHEW ARRISON III Jim 1st Company Jim came to the Naval Academy from William Penn Charter School in Philadelphia where he excelled in soccer, swimming, and golf. At the Academy Jim continued his athletic endeavors and made both the plebe and varsity soccer teams. He also provided lead- ership for intramural fieldball teams. Due to his cheerful attitude he made many friends both on and off the athletic fields. He had very little trouble with academics and never let them interfere with dragging and bridge. He was a very active member of the BAC and took added interest in Army Game prep- arations. After graduating, Jim plans to go into the EDO Program and study naval archi- tecture. FRANCIS JOSEPH BECHELLI, Jr. Joe 1st Company When Joe came to USNA from his home in Arlington, Virginia, it was obvious that neither would remain unchanged. A Navy Junior, Joe soon discovered that he could top any aca- demic hurdle, and he did just that, as his stars proved. His athletic interests varied from crew coxwain in plebe year to the Bat- talion Tennis and Company Cross-Country teams. His drive and determination on the ' playing field as well as in the classroom were well-known to his classmates. Since his home was nearby, his one-and-only could come down more than often. Joe ' s weeks were filled with a good deal of anticipation waiting for the weekends. Having acquired a never-ending source of professional knowledge, Joe will find his niche in the nuclear Navy, where his career can be nothing but successful. It is midnight at Annapolis start of a new day . . . LYNDON RAY BELL Dawg 1st Company Lyndon Bell is from Pittsburg, Texas and, like all Texans, is proud of his home state. He attended the University of Texas for one year before joining the Brigade of Midship- men. Possessed with good humor in his rela- tions with others and a tenacity born of necessity in his relations with the academic departments, " Dawg " soon earned a " home " at USNA and a warm spot in the hearts of his classmates. Lyndon is noted for his sing- ing ability which he demonstrated in the Chapel Choir and Glee Club. He has also par- ticipated in company sports of which Squash is his favorite. In spite of this busy schedule, Lyndon found time to " drag " the local belles and enjoyed his stay at USNA. Lyndon will join the surface Navy upon graduation and, with his never-say-die attitude and good humored initiative, should be a welcome addi- tion to any wardroom. BRENT MARTIN BENNITT Nuts 1st Company Brent first journeyed to the " Trade School on the Severn from sunny California where he was raised. Upon arrival, he began his naval career on a high note and he has not lost any of his impetus since then. He partici- pated in Varsity Squash and Company Light- weight Football. In these endeavors, he proved himself to be a fierce competitor and an asset to any team. Brent was always willing to lend a helping hand to those of us less fortunate in our continuous battle with academics. No matter how busy he was, he always found time for conversation and play. His friendly smile and kind words were a great inspiration to all who knew him. Navy Air is Brent ' s goal and judging from past per- formances, his career should soar even higher than his plane. DANIEL EDWARD BIENLIEN Dan 1st Company Dan spent the first eighteen years of his life in Holstein, Iowa, a small farming town of 1500 persons. An outstanding athlete in three sports and a good student, he had little dif- ficulty in making the transition to the USNA. Although gifted with an abundance of ath- letic ability, Dan ' s love for the easy life pre- vented his attempting any varsity level sports. He was, however, a key figure on many intramural teams. With the exception of Span- ish, Dan had little difficulty in maintaining a passing average, leaving much spare time for his favorite extra curricular activity — planning for the next leave period. Dan ' s goals after graduation include a tour at USNA as a Spanish prof, but more immediate plans call for Navy Air. GREGORY DONALD BINDER Greg 1st Company An interest in ships and aircraft brought Greg from Milwaukee, Wisconsin to the Naval Academy, where the academics kept him on his toes. With his subtle wit and a willingness to get into an argument, it is no wonder he was able to help pull the First Battalion De- bating Team to victory many times. Given a few minutes of free time, he could usually be found fixing someone ' s clock or phono- graph; reading about planes or automobiles, or perhaps listening to a violin concerto. During his plebe year Greg ' s level-headedness, combined with his sense of humor, enabled him to take the bad with the good and emerge with flying colors. The academics were rough, but Greg, through attaining excellent study habits, was seldom ill-at-ease when faced with an exam. Whichever career he may choose, Greg ' s friendliness and reliability will take him far. ... a day which may turn out to be routine . . . PETER KLAUS BOWDEN Pete 1st Company Pete would appear, at first glance, to be a typical New Englander. However, this is far from true although his home is in Peabody, Massachusetts. Pete, a native of Germany, came to this country in 1948, and after master- ing the English language went on to excel both in academics and sports in high school. At USNA the determination of his younger years stood him in good stead. While not a star in the field of academics, his hard work kept him far away from any bouts with the Academic Board. He did not, however, spend all of his time studying. He was Editor of the " Splinter " and in the German Club as well as being on the Ocean Sailing Squadron for two years. Pete plans to enter one of the Navy staff corps after graduation. or may instead, be filled with excitement. EDWARD EARL BRIGHTON, Jr. Ed 1st Company A Navy junior, Ed saw much of the United States before settling down for four years at the Naval Academy. Three months after his seventeenth birthday, plebe year began, but in spite of it all, Ed managed to stroke the plebe crew (first boat) in several races and set the basis for his further success in aca- demics. Youngster Year found Ed as an avid yawl sailor and crew member in the 1962 race to Bermuda from Newport. As a segundo, Ed skpipered the yawl " Lively " to a successful season (even managed to win a jigger cup for a trophy) and won himself the chance to sail the " Swift " in the 1964 Annapolis-to-Newport Race. With Ed ' s competitive spirit, intellec- tual aggressiveness, and affable personality, we are sure he will make a welcome and im- portant addition to the fleet and the Navy. JOHN STEVENS BROWNING, Jr. Johnny 1st Company ' lohn graduated from Paris Texas High and ifter a year of studies at East Texas State College, decided to make the big conversion irom Texan to Midshipman. After four years |)f study at USNA, John has decided you r-an ' t take Texas out of a Texan, but you can put Navy into one, so the conversion as such k as never made and for once the U. S. Navy jettled for a tie. A member of the Army ifeserve for a year prior to coming to USNA, le had already decided to spend a part of lis life in the military service of his country. His keen interest in history carried over p academy life, where John has always en- oyed the distinction of being an authority on ar and famous personalities. His high aca- emic average in English, History and Gov- Irnment emphasizes this attribute. John ' s ' reat personality, leadership ability and his ' erce desire to succeed will ultimately lead to ,jccess. RUSSELL HENRY BUCKLEY, Jr. Buck 1st Company Buck, after many years of wandering as a Navy junior, finally settled at the Naval Academy. Buck never spent much time on the studies but always received his grades easily enough. Buck could usually be found over in Macdonough Hall either working out or hitting the bags. He was one of the best boxers in his class while still holding onto that easy going manner. His warm smile and friendly nature won him many friends and he is sure to be an asset to the Navy in any particular field he chooses. ROBERT HENRY BUTTRAM 1st Company oming from Kingston, Tennessee, near the itomic reactors of Oak Ridge, Bob has jrought some of that radiant energy back to Jancroft and the surrounding campus. After aking top honors in high school and gradu- ting salutatorian, he started right off plebe ummer winning the expert pistol and rifle :edals. Then when the academic year finally tarted, Bob proved that he had more than jst scholastic ability by competing in a dif- srent sport every season until he finally had d start repeating some second class year, ut more than being an all-around athlete nd scholar, Bob has also proved to be some- hat of a ladies man. His personality which ained him so many friends here at the Naval cademy, along with his spirit and ambition ill insure him a great career. MICHAEL PATRICK CAPUTO 1st Company Mike came to the Academy directly from high school in Teaneck, New Jersey. Show- ing his skill with a rifle early in plebe sum- mer, he went on to win a Navy " N, " become an All-American, and capture the National Intercollegiate Small Bore Rifle Champion- ship. Mike was also an active member of the " Log " and Radio Station WRNV. Spare time never seemed to be a problem for Mike and he was usually flanked by a good looking drag, Italian food, and good music. Mike ' s good sense of humor and ability to get along with others will indeed go a long way towards making his naval career an enjoyable and successful one. STEVEN HURLEY CLAASSEN 1st Company After a half year at Fresno State College, Steve signed onto the good ship, USNA. Hailing from Berkeley, California, Steve was a top high school swimmer and quite adept in woodworking. Plebe year found him in seat number five on the Lightweight Crew. Since then, Steve has played many sports, from basketball to water polo. His major interests include electronics; an excellent stereo and participation in WRNV attest to this. After graduation, Steve will return to the warm, sunny climate that he loves; not Berkeley, but Pensacola. Steve ' s quick wit, and go getter attitude will certainly provide the Navy with an outstanding officer. to the rush of the flying squadron . . . i DOUGLAS BOYD CUTTER Doug 1st Company Coming from Atlanta, Georgia, Doug ' s bath- robe proudly displayed the Confederate flag which he defended in his protests of Sher- man ' s intrusion. During his stay at USNA, Doug pulled up his academic standing each year while he was the mainstay of many battalion and company sports such as foot- ball, basketball, Softball and tennis. When not on the playing fields, he demonstrated extreme grace and fine form in the rack. Always willing to gamble on a blind date, Doug certainly defies the old adage, " You can ' t be a great fighter and a great lover. " He is prolific in both. Hoping for a career in Navy Air, his congenial nature and " let me show you " attitude should take him far in his life ' s endeavors. the sound of feet clattering through the deserted yard . JOSEPH JOHN DANTONE, Jr. Jack 1st Company Jack was born in Baltimore, Maryland, but he has spent a great deal of time on the move, since he Is a Navy junior. Jack ' s interests while at USNA included intramural sports where he played volleyball, touch football, and company squash. In academics, his major interest was " bull " in which he over- loaded. When he had spare time, he dragged, slept, or played bridge. He was known throughout his company as a sharp bridge player. Jack was a good friend to turn to when problems arose. He had a twinkle in his eye and a friendly greeting for everyone. Jack aspires to Navy Air, but wherever he goes, he will find many friends. He should have a very successful Naval career. ROBERT CURRINDER DONALSON Bob 1st Company Bob, a native of Wilmington, Delaware, quick- ly became known at the Naval Academy for his enthusiasm on the athletic field, the dance floor and in the classroom. Along with being his company ' s outstanding mem- ber on the Lightweight football team, he has also been a member of the Plebe Wrestling squad and the Varsity 150 pound Football team. Bob has become famous for his ability on the dance floor and is a fixture at all Spiffy Hops and in the finals of almost every Twist contest. Although Bob has not yet been able to realize his goal of making the Superintendent ' s List, his hard work with the books have always resulted in his grades being well above average. Bob ' s hobbies lie mostly in the field of athletics but his versatility is evid ie reads I interested in stereo recordings and is one of the biggest eaters at the Academy. •.ndly personality and pleasant dis- make him well liked by all who know him. Bob is sure to be a success in the service wherever he goes. JAMES HARDIN FINNEY Jay 1st Company Jay came to the Academy after a year at Western Kentucky State College. His devo- tion to the Academy and to his classmates became apparent during his plebe year when he won the friendship of all his classmates and became respected by the upperclass. During the following years he turned his attention from plebe year to academics and sports. As with everything Jay ever did, his desire to win was prevalent and he made the Superintendent ' s List. He also became one of the standouts in every sport he played. Jay ' s ability and love to lead and to study will always remain an integral part of his character and will always put him on top no matter where he goes or what he does. JAMES WILLIAM FOSTER Jim 1st Company Jim was born and raised in New Jersey, and he currently resides in Haddonfield. He is one of the fortunate members of ' 64 whose Honor Roll high school record became Su- perintendent ' s List grades here at the Acad- emy. Jim ' s high average, however, did not come from the standard courses alone, for he starred in several of the elective courses which are offered. His time was not com- pletely spent leafing through the books. He was a member of the Science Seminar, the German Club, the " Splinter " staff, and vari- ous other clubs and intramural sports. Many of his weekends were spent escorting his future bride through the streets of Annap- olis. This is the reason for his lack of " sea stories " which accumulate during summer cruises. Jim plans, with assurance, to enter Nuclear Power School after graduation and eventually earn his gold Dolphins. DOUGLAS PAUL FUGE Doug 1st Company As past record is usually indicative of future performance, Doug ' s past record, both at the Naval Academy and previously, reveal a future of achievement and great satisfaction. Fourth Class year found Doug participating in Concert Band, yawl sailing, in addition to playing an active part in helping his company win the Brigade Cross Company Championship. His enthusiasm in sailing was climaxed Youngster year when as a member of the Ocean Sailing Squadron, he partici- pated in the Newport-Bermuda Race. Equal enthusiasm for academics as well as sports was distinctive with Doug throughout his four years here at the Naval Academy. He has been engaged in the alternate elective pro- gram, and is working for a Nuclear Science Major. With his interest directed in the nuclear field, Doug hopes someday to be among those of the Blue and Gold crews manning the nuclear ships maintaining our vital security. GEORGE EDMUND HARRELL George 1st Company George, a Navy junior, left sunny California to meet the challenge of the Naval Acad- emy. His thoughtfulness and good manners soon won him many friends. Although his efforts as a gymnast were thwarted when his event was eliminated from collegiate competition, his overall athletic ability made him an indispensable member of any team he joined, from tennis to football. George spent his second class summer leave earning his airborne wings at Fort Benning, Georgia. Although he spent a lot of time behind the books, he would readily set them down to discuss the merits of the latest sports car. When he could not talk anybody into a game of tennis, he would lean back and en- joy his beautiful hi-fi set. George is looking forward to a successful career in Naval Aviation. returning at breakneck speed from an evening ' s anticipated conclusion. BRIAN KENNETH HENDRICKS Brian 1st Company Coming from the small farming town of Thorp, Wisconsin, Brian spent a year in the Fleet and a year maintaining an excellent record at NAPS. Upon entering the Naval Academy, he met with continuing success in academics. What he lacked in the Bull De- partment, he made up for in engineering abil- ity to remain on the Superintendent ' s List all of his four years. During much of his spare time, he could be found keeping him- self in shape in the weightlifting loft. Upon graduation, Brian will be looking forward to a career in Naval Aviation. THOMAS HOWELL HARRIS Tom 1st Company Tom came to USNA after spending two years at Chamberlan Hunt Academy in Mississippi where he captained the football team during his senior year. Being well grounded in both academic and military discipline, Tom had little trouble negotiating the rigors of plebe year. At Navy, " Thumper " demonstrated his propensity for football by playing halfback for the Brigade Champion 1st Battalion football team. Upperclass academics never presented much of a problem for the wiry rebel so Tom had plenty of time to catch a few winks dur- ing free periods. Following graduation, Tom plans to go Navy Air which will be simple for a man of proven razorback determination and possessing the pride of a truly profes- sional naval officer in doing a job right the first time. JOHN COX HENZE John 1st Company Upon graduation from Hastings-on-Hudson High School, this staunch New Yorker en- listed in the Navy. He spent a year at NAPS and finally arrived on the shores of the Ches- apeake Bay. From the outset of plebe year, John was a mainstay on the battalion swim- ming and handball teams, bringing home several brigade championships. Academics came extremely easy to John and it is quite possible that he set some sort of record for the least amount of time spent on the books. John ' s favorite pastime is assorted reading. This can be verified by his fantastic array of books, ranging from philosophy to advanced science and mathematics. Regard- less of the branch of the service he chooses, John ' s quiet manner and keen mind insure him of success. ROBERT EUGENE HOLLIS Bob 1st Company After spending a year at the University of California, in his hometown of Riverside, Bob decided he would be able to best ex- press himself at USNA. He came to Annapolis on a Naval Reserve appointment. Among his many interests is his fascination for travel and new places. While at the Academy, his first love, second only to a good party and a good crowd, has been in the sport ' s com- petition offered. He has been a key member on several of the company football, softball and volleyball teams and has always shown a great competitive spirit. He is now looking forward to his career as a Naval aviator and will go far in whatever field of endeavor he chooses. JOHN LOWELL KIPP John 1st Company The son of a Presbyterian minister, John came to USNA from Frankfort, Indiana. John had a fine academic high school record, and continued to maintain a respectable grade average in his academy career. His chances to star were in the Bull department, however, not in the Skinny department, as he learned in a near fatal struggle with Youngster Skinny. John ' s running ability distinguished him as one of the outstanding members of the Company Cross Country team, which won the Brigade Championship during the plebe year. John can easily handle responsibility, as he showed while acting as company " Lucky Bag " representative. His personality and abilities will make him a fine officer and shipmate. The midnight hour may be a stealthy breakaway . . . NORMAN LAW MACINTYRE Norm 1st Company Boasting plenty of experience with the guided missiles of the fleet, Norm (often called Mac), came to the Academy several steps ahead of his classmates. Never one to let up, his knowledge of electronics stood up well under the onslaught of the science de- partment. This fact, along with his infinite patience, was certainly appreciated by the never-ending stream of questions posed him by those of us unfortunates without this gift. This determination and his ceaseless smile won for him an unusually large number of friends throughout the brigade. Neither his golden locks nor that " rock " will ever be forgotten. In addition to his flair with elec- tricity, Norm showed a sincere love for the sea and became a member of the ocean sailing team. With his background and win- ning personality, the Navy will gain an ex- tremely devoted officer when he rejoins the fleet. Up, up, up, and ... oh no! and its inevitable confrontation. Three guys at three Forms Two apiece, let ' s see, it ' ll take a lot of carbon paper JAMES RAISBECK MAITLAND Jim 1st Company Jim spent one year in the NROTC unit at the University of Illinois before coming to the Naval Academy. His love of sailing and the sea was second only to a girl back home. During Plebe year, Jim was a member of the Dinghy Team and the Track Team. As an upperclassman, he joined the Ocean Sailing team and spent his time sailing on the " Freedom " and racing on the Academy ' s Luder Yawls. Jim sailed on the " Gypsy " in the 1962 Newport-Bermuda Race. During the winter months, " Maits " was a rugged com- petitor on the First Company ' s Lightweight Football team. In the years ahead, Jim ' s love of the sea, his competitive spirit and amiable personality, will be an asset to him and to the ships and men of the Navy. NORMAN DAVID MASTERSON Bat 1st Company Bat came to the Academy from nearby Severn Prep School. Being a member of the Naval Reserves, he was well oriented militarily and found little trouble fitting into the brigade. Aside from academics, which posed some problems from time to time, Bat spent most of his time playing intramural lacrosse and bridge. As class ring representative, he did an excellent job of handling the many tasks which resulted in our finally receiving our cherished rings. The memories of his many night excursions will always remain with Bat as he lends his talents to Navy Air. EDWARD ARTHUR MONACO, Jr. Ed 1st Company Ed entered the Naval Academy after gradu- ating from Oneida High School, where he lettered in football, wrestling and baseball. After playing plebe football, Ed shifted to company cross country and helped the First Company to the Brigade Championship. Dur- ing Youngster year, Ed met the challenge of academics and also found time to work on the " Log " layout staff. As a typical Youngster, he also sampled the Academy ' s social life by dragging on the weekends. During second class year, Ed became " Log " Layout Editor and continued to help the company sports teams to successful seasons. As Layout Ed- itor he helped to produce some very out- standing issues of the ' Log. " Ed ' s personality and varied abilities will be assets to him during his future years in the Navy. Night finds us doing many things, JAMES ROBERT PASCH Moc 1st Company As a star high school student from Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, Moc went straight to USNA. Plebe year presented problems but early in his Youngster year, Jim set the stage, through hard work, for his ensuing success. Soon he had his star average which he has kept ever since. He is known by his friends for his unquenchable appetite for books and the " pad " but he never has let them inter- fere when there was work to be done. When it came to dragging, Jim ' s common sense prevailed and he always saved his money. On the athletic field, his talent matched his academic prowess for he was a key player on several championship First Company teams. After graduation there is the Navy for Jim and a tour with the Fleet. more varied than would be expected in these quiet hours. ALEXANDER MARTIN PHILLIPS Marty 1st Company Marty arrived from the hills of West Virginia after a year at Columbian Prep. His talents found their place on the plebe Crew Team and as a " Professional Plebe " during the " plebe ho ' s " before Hundredth Night. After plebe year, the company sports, studying, the pad, chow from home and a rendezvous with the " butcher " of Bethesda occupied most of Marty ' s time. He will always be remembered as a female-plagued, happy-go-lucky and fun loving guy who could still be sincere and perservering in his work. Marty ' s colorful per- sonality and fine qualities are certain to be appreciated throughout his career in the Navy. JOHN DALE SANDE John 1st Company ' John came to USNA after an outstanding •high school career in Coalinga, California. .After a slow start his Plebe Year, due to time ' spent in the hospital, John gained his stride. i Swimming and water sports have been his ' best sports. John has always been an ex- cellent student, especially in Math, Skinny ;and Bull. Unfortunately, he had the ability ; of coming close to the Superintendent ' s List ■ and yet not making same. For relaxation, John ; could be found perfecting his game of pool. ! The fact that his home was so far away somewhat limited his social life, but cruise ! and leave gave him a chance to make up for | lost time. Upon graduation, John plans to be i a Naval Aviator. With his personal determina- j tion and ability to get along with others, his future will be a bright one. ROBERT SCHUYLER SHUNK Bob 1st Company Bob ' s heart lies in Pensacola where he is from and where he would like to go after graduation. As the manager during his four years at the Academy, Bob saw the rifle team set a new winning streak of 20 straight for sporting events. He also showed his tal- ent on the Softball team as an " ace " hitter and infielder. Art was his main outside in- terest. His excess time was taken up by his blond and his dream of a Corvette. He always had a big smile and a good word for every- one. Second Class summer only increased Bob ' s original ambition to follow his father as a top aviator and his career will undoubt- edly be Navy Wings of Gold. JOSEPH DAVID STEWART Joe 1st Company Joe is undoubtedly one of the first ones home at leave time, living in Severna Park, Mary- land, only twenty minutes from the Academy. Joe came to the Academy from Severn School where he was co-captain of both the foot- ball and lacrosse teams. While not playing sports, Joe built an academic background which has made him an above average stu- dent during his four years here. A standout on the Plebe Lacrosse team, Joe won his first " N " against Army his Youngster year playing a lot of fine lacrosse and helping Navy win the National Championship. Joe ' s sense of humor and constant smile almost proved to be his downfall during his plebe year. How- ever, these qualities make up a person who can do nothing but succeed no matter where he turns his attention after graduation. Not a drop of entropy left 1 WILLIAM ANSON TINSLEY, III Bill 1st Company Bill jumped right into the Academy life from Fairview High School and was undoubtedly the most loyal " razorback " ever to come out of Arkansas. Although plebe year rather cramped his easy-going style for awhile, Bill soon found plenty of relief through his abil- ities on the Plebe Track team. Known by his team-mates as the " fattest half-miler in the world, " he went on to devote his spare time almost entirely to track. Academics never seemed to bother Bill as he could always be found deep in a good book or catching up on his sleep. His cheerful, jovial personality will certainly be long remembered by his many friends and will prove to be a great asset to him in the future. ROBERT MATTHEW WARD Bob 1st Company Bob, born in New London, Connecticut, came to the Naval Academy a Navy junior, after graduating from Ctironado High School, Cal- ifornia (a four sport man) and attending Bullis Prep for a year. Possessing a never tir- ing love of travel and action, Bob played baseball; was active in foreign relations and attended airborne, survival and scuba schools. Bob ' s major interests lie in sports, a good looking nurse named Carol and marine avia- tion. Many ideas originate from Bob ' s fanci- ful imagination, so he will always add " new blood " to any atmosphere, no matter where it may be. Some of us, awake, face tomorrow with uncertainty . . . even panic . , Don DONALD JAY WRIGHT 1st Company Both in high school and during his freshman year at the University of California, Don was an outstanding man on the athletic field and in the classroom. He quickly mastered his freshman year at USNA and was an out- standing Plebe. Undaunted by either the Academic or Executive departments, he con- tributed his ability to both the Battalion and Varsity Football teams at the guard position and was the defensive spark plug on the winning Company Fieldball team. When not on the athletic field, Don could usually be found busy at his desk with studies or leis- urely reading. His tremendous smile and arresting personality kept him in the front line where he went, especially at parties. Don ' s keen ability, enthusiasm and industri- ous nature should pave the way for a bright future in Navy Air. ALBERT RYAN WEIGEL Al 1st Company Al went to high school and spent most of his life in Maplewood, New Jersey, but he now calls Simsbury, Connecticut his home. His outstanding abilities were quickly recognized upon his entrance to the Academy, as he was elected Company Honor Representative and served on the Hop Committee during his plebe year. He was also an active member of the Class Improvement Committee. A stickler for physical fitness, his afternoons were spent with the Varsity Crew Team where he developed into one of the top oarsmen. Academics never gave Al too much trouble and he demonstrated his ability to get by with minimum study time by setting up an impressive rivalry to the Second Wing barber shop. His quick wit and congenial nature should take him far in whatever service he enters. . . . while others, with confidence, blissfully unaware VICTOR STANLEY BARON Vic 2nd Company Coming to USNA from the Great Divide, Vic was always ready to forsake the East Coast for his native Colorado. Even the charms of the various drags that were seen with him, couldn ' t keep Vic from returning to the hunting and skiing that he loved. He loved to rough it up on the football and soccer fields and was a welcome addition to the company teams. His biggest handicap was the 15 pounds he had to lose each season to play lightweight football. Vic was engaged in a running battle with the Skinny Dept. for 4 years, otherwise academics didn ' t cause him to lose much sleep, especially after he was able to throw his Dago book over the seawall. Vic ' s friendly manner made him well liked by everyone and there is no doubt that he will be a success in any area he wishes to concentrate. MALCOLM JAMES BELLAFRONTO, Jr. Mai 2nd Company Mai came directly to the Academy from Notre Dame High School in Westhaven, Con- necticut. Being active in the sports pro- gram there, he carried these learned abilities to the Academy and plebe year found him on the football team, and a semi-finalist in Brigade Boxing. We will never forget the heavyweight match in which Mai sustained a head injury which forced his retirement from the Academy sports program. Second class summer, Mai became known as the " friendly barber ' ' and he has never been known to turn down a customer who might need a quick cut. Mai definitely decided against Navy Air, spending most of his flight hours in sick bay. However, with his beam- ing personality and a mature outlook on the Navy definitely has an asset, at least for the required four years. ROBERT HANS BODER Bob 2nd Company After graduating from Pine Crest High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Bob made his way to USNA. Easy to get along with and fun loving, he quickly put these talents to use. Although the Dago department posed a slight obstacle in his path, Bob was able to maintain the required 2.50. After earning his plebe numerals, Bob went on to earn his Varsit y " N " in swimming during his Youngster year. The fall and spring found this waterminded person as a member of the Ocean Sailing team. Navy Air holds Bob ' s future and the end result can be nothing but success for him. JOHN FORREST BROWN Buddy 2nd Company Buddy came to USNA from Tuscaloosa, Ala- bama. Graduating a standout from high school, he entered Alabama University, but soon left to join the Navy. After attending aviation electronics technician ' s school in Memphis, Tennessee, he entered NAPS, and then to the Academy. At the Academy, Buddy has been a sailor and active in intramural sports. A person quick to master his stud- ies, he has spent a great deal of time read- ing. Owning what is easily one of the finest stereos going, he is always happy when the music is on. Buddy hopes to make use of his jump school trai ning and will become one of the Navy ' s hot jet pilots after grad- uation. I RICHARD LENNOX BURKE Dick 2nd Company Dick stands as an outstanding credit to an Education on the sunny banks of the Severn. [Being an expert performer on the " blue trampoline, " he spent many long afternoons in his last three years at USNA working out the finer points of the art. He never re- vived stars or an " N " but any job given him vas met with determination and a desire to do his best. Dick ' s great determination and desire should take him a long way as he follows a career as a Navy flyer. His friends and classmates will always remember him For his quick sense of humor and willingness !to always give someone a hand. EDWARD ANTHONY CHLADEK Ed 2nd Company Ed came to the Naval Academy from Chicago where he graduated from Calumet High School. Though he had a little trouble with plebe Spanish, his grades were always high enough to earn his extra weekend for the Superintendent ' s List. Well known for his knowledge of the intricacies of electrical en- gineering, he could always be relied upon to figure out the correct answer. Through hard work and many electives, Ed was able to accumulate enough extra credit for a major in electrical engineering. When not studying or dragging, Ed could be found on the ten- nis courts, on the intramural cross country team or with the Y. P. Squadron. His inquis- itive mind and bright sense of humor along with the capacity for hard work will be a great asset to his career. JAMES WARD CLARK Jim 2nd Company Jim, known as the " old man " of the company, came to USNA from Canon Cit y High School, Canon City, Colorado. He had a 3-year lay- over in the Navy and NAPS and while in the Navy, became a Guided Missileman 3 C. While in high school, Jim earned 4 Varsity letters but due to a bad knee, he was un- able to engage in these sports at Navy. Jim has reconciled himself to playing on top notch company and battalion teams. Jim works hard on his academics and has had no trouble except occasionally with Math. His concentration has enabled him to be- come one of the company ' s better bridge players. Jim is uncertain of his final military destination but he is leaning toward sub- marines. lose themselves in needed sleep. RICHARD CHARLES CURLEY Dick 2nd Company Dick, from Malvern, Pennsylvania, attended Radnor High School and then one year at the University of Delaware. In high school, he took an active part in sports, winning varsity recognition in football, basketball and track. He earned the coveted Eagle Scout award for his work in scouting. At the Acad- emy, Dick has obtained numerals in plebe track and two NA ' s in football. The pros- pects are good that he will be wearing an " N " in football, too. Dick ' s flashing smile and jovial personality will long be remembered by his classmates. The academics and Dick have no real difficulties, except that he sel- dom turns down an offer for a game of bridge. Dick is undecided as to his future in the Navy, but no matter where he goes, it will be with his high school sweetheart by his side. PHILIP HOWARD DAVID Phil 2nd Company Torn from the arms of his high school sweet- heart, Phil arrived at Navy counting the days until Christmas leave and home again. The books ran a close third to letter writing and reading for this quiet, likeable mid from Pennsylvania. Always conscientious toward athletics, studies and other brigade activi- ties, Phil ' s greatest efforts were directed to- ward seeing the girl who wears his ring, on all occasions that money and time would permit. On Youngster cruise, Phil decided that the surface was his desire, which was reflected in his decision to remain behind with the Plebe summer detail. Graduation plans include marriage and a career in the destroyer Navy. NEWELL GREGORY DAVIS Greg 2nd Company Greg, coming right from high school, has some doubt as to where his legal residence is. He has lived in Massachusetts, Pennsyl- vania and now resides in Santa Barbara, California, when not at USNA. Most of the time, Greg can be seen at the books, but novels and mysteries have never been known to aid in academics. His battle with the aca- demics has never found him on the losing side. During Plebe and Youngster year, Greg was active in the Battalion and Brigade box- ing programs. Greg will carry with him many fond memories of his Youngster cruise aboard the " Eagle " and Second class aviation sum- mer. Greg is looking forward to flying his own jet, and it seems as though Navy Air has gained another candidate. His enthusiasm and interest should give this branch of Navy another top flight officer. JOHN MORGAN EVANS Evs 2nd Company " Evs " came to USNA after graduation from the New Mexico Military Institute. A former Texan, he now calls Chappaqua, New York his home. His jovial manner and quick wit easily won him many friends and made him a welcome member of any group or party. While at USNA he was a member of the Spanish Club and the Plebe Wrestling team. His athletic abilities sparked company soc- cer, football and baseball teams to many victories. During Second class summer, John gained his enthusiasm for a career in Naval Aviation and we expect to see him back at Pensacola after graduation, earning his Navy Wings. Many of us study late FRANCIS MCWHORTER FELTHAM Frank 2nd Company A native Floridian, Frank came to the Naval Academy by way of Bui I is Prep. The Academy was always his love, for he spent three of four summers at USNA, first as a plebe, then as a segundo and then as a firstie. His abil- ity to devote himself completely to anything he starts and carry it through to a successful conclusion, will stand him in good stead in his career in the Navy. His character is such that he will always seem to be a father to the company. Frank did well on the company soccer and cross country squads. His interest in sports was never a drawback academically for he did well at grade time. At graduation, Frank will follow in the steps of his two brothers and wear the Wings of Gold. over cigarettes and books . . . Three down, five to go GREGORY PAUL GANTZERT Greg 2nd Company Greg, having no home town, continued his roaming life once at the Academy. Leave time found him either in Europe or lost on the New York subways. While at Annapolis, he could be found either sleeping; studying his favorite subject, Weapons, or dreaming of the golf trip to Florida which he never made. The Supt ' s List was always that one step away but Greg always did his best, no matter how difficult the job. His athletic achievements came in soccer, football and golf. Throughout his four years at USNA, Greg was well liked by everyone because of his easy going attitude and personality. Greg plans for the future include Navy life, prefer- ably destroyers, and marriage to his sweet- heart in New York. ANTHONY JOHN GARCIA Tony 2nd Company Tony came to the Naval Academy via the NROTC at the University of Michigan where he completed his freshman year. He holds fond memories of the University and his home town of Detroit. Tony is an easy going and friendly guy who has made a good many friends at USNA. During his years here, aca- demics have never gotten the best of him, and during his leisure time, he really knows how to relax. Tony is always an outstanding figure at any social gathering and when he is dragging, you can bet that his date is a " queen. " Tony is looking forward to flying in either the Navy or the Marine Corps. Whichever one he chooses, we know that he will be the best in the sky. MICHAEL JOHN GIERMAN Mike 2nd Company Mike graduated from high school in the top of his class. He was a varsity athlete and participated in several other extracurricular activities including the annual staff and school science clubs. He also enjoyed the winter and summer sports of the Great Lakes region. Mike ' s main interest while here at the Academy has been sports. He is a fierce competitor in intramural tennis and squash.

Sports continued to be a big part of Doug ' s life as he proved a fiery ■ural competitor in tennis and track. Nil I reign Relations Club and NAFAC com- mitti e accounted for Doug ' s extracurricular lies. On graduation he will accept his immission in Surface Navy Line and hopes to serve in the Destroyer Force of the Pacific Fleet. involved in the endless preparation for tomorrow ' s classes. PATRICK WALTER HAALA, Jr. Pat 2nd Company No Saturday night conference around the Second Company would be complete without Pat relating his adventures in the backwoods of Minnesota. Never one to let studies inter- fere with his cosmopolitan pursuits, Pat could always be counted on as a bridge fourth or the member of a liberty party. After a rough start plebe year, Pat squared the Academic departments away and kept his head above water in everything (but swimming). He ' ll tell you his reason for light workouts with the books is to save his eyes for Navy Air which he plans to enter upon graduation. Never one to leave a job half done, Pat should have a rewarding career with the flyers. EDMUND PENNELL HANNUM, Jr. 2nd Company Mter starring in many high school sports in Philadelphia, Ed entered the Academy.

Undoubt- dly his persistence will greatly enhance his :areer in Navy Air. In Ed, the Navy will re- vive a very outstanding and devoted officer. ROBERT WYLIE HARVEY, Jr. 2nd Company Bob, or " Box " as most know him, came to Navy from Belleville, New Jersey. He left that town and that state with quite a reputation as a fine athlete on the track, and he main- tained this reputation at the Academy. Bob was a dependable member of the track team at Navy during his plebe and upperclass years. As a low and high hurdler, he broke several records and contributed to many Navy victories. For the most part, Bob had little trouble with the academics, clearing them as easily as he cleared the hurdles. His pleasing and reserved personality, linked with his natural and easy-going ability will pro- vide the Navy with a fine officer. RUSSELL KENNETH HENRY 2nd Company Ken came to the Naval Academy from San Diego, California. A Navy junior, Ken already knew what he wanted to do. After an out- standing plebe year in which he demon- strated the qualities of patience and depend- ability, he devoted himself to hard work in the academics, particularly in English, where he stood at the upper part of his class. Ken spent most of his spare time dating and writ- ing his one-and-only. Ken particularly en- joyed swimming and reading. After gradu- ation, Ken plans to go back to postgraduate school and obtain his degree in English. He has expressed a desire to teach. Whatever he does, Ken will make a fine, capable officer and will be a credit to the services. Most spend these hours as they were intended. It ' s a dog ' s life, for both of them I WAYNE IVES HUMPHREYS Humph 2nd Company I Wayne, from New Jersey, came to the Acad- lemy with a manner that attracted many Ifriends.

This is the branch pf the Navy to which he has openly devoted liis entire stay at the Academy. Wayne jihowed a particular love for sailing by be- coming a bulwark of the dinghy sailing team. jMthough, by his own admission, not natural- ly talented in academics, Humph worked Ifiligently and was rewarded with better I nan average grades. Wayne intends making Jhe Navy his career and, in him, the Navy Iwill find one of her most capable officers. EUGENE EDWARD KELLY Gene 2nd Company Gene came to USNA from a long line of Hoosiers and was always quick to stand up for Indiana. While at the Academy, Gene very aptly demonstrated his skills in " the " sport of Indiana, basketball. Gene did this by leading several company teams to excellent seasons. Among one of the best thought of men in his class, " Kells " never lacked a pleasant word for anyone. Gene was a man of extremes, liking girls as much as he hated E.D. Gene ' s vast amount of aptitude for the service and ability, will make him an excel- lent naval officer whether on the waves or in the air. And sleep brings peace CRISPIN SAEGER KRAFT Chris 2nd Company Chris came to the Naval Academy from West Morris Regional High School, Morristown, New Jersey. A leader in both academics and team sports, Chris has maintained a " Supt ' s List " academic average while at the same time participating in plebe track and bas- ketball. He has also contributed greatly to battalion and company intramural sports teams. Chris is an industrious person who makes the most of the 24 hours available each day.

He played plebe foot- ball and baseball, but had his career abruptly ended by a back injury. His love for sports was not to be denied though, and he was able to put his athletic abilities to good use in intramural sports. Jay has quite a capacity for good times, good food and never seemed to get enough of any of them at the Acad- emy. His easy going Southern attitude to- ward life, along with his unusual sense of humor, made him well known and well liked. His biggest admirer is a pretty southern belle who shares his first name and is des- tined to get his last. Jay ' s quiet understand- ing and steadfast dedication will make him a welcomed asset in his chosen career. to this busy institution PHILIP WILLIAM LABATTE, Jr. Phil 2nd Company Four years of effort in academics and com- pany participation found Phil near the top of ' 64. Taking the constant strain, he main- tained " Supt ' s List " grades, yet, by mem- orizing " Sports Illustrated, " he also held the title of leading authority on sports in the Second Company. His own athletic achieve- ments at Navy included plebe baseball, bat- talion football, company Softball, basketball and heavyweight football. Outstanding in all, he was star player on regimental champion- ship football and Softball teams. All this and yet Phil had time for the pad and a little liberty in his hometown of Alexandria, Virginia. He and his accomplishments at Navy can be summed up in six words often used by his classmates; " Phil Labatte— all around good guy. " ERE He ear itf 3: ' ■■ ■ ' j. ' i I ma RICHARD WALLACE LUDDEN Dick 2nd Company Born in Rome, New York, Dick came to the Academy after spending a year at Purdue University. A top notch student, he has greatly improved his plebe year average while at the same time, taking enough elec- tees to obtain a major in Chemistry and Physics. His classmates will always remem- ber him as being ready and willing to give academic help. He participated in many intra- mural sports but found company fieldball the most challenging. His most trying moment came during Second class summer when he was unexpectedly given command of the U.S.S. Fremont. Always interested in the opposi ' welcome •i ii ' im his busy schedule. His pleas- ity and persevering .itntude has already marked him for success. EDWARD HEMOND MACKENZIEE III Ed 2nd Company Ed, changing coasts, came from California to Maryland by way of Columbian Prep. He was active in high school sports but academic bouts, especially with Spanish, left him little time for varsity sports. However, he could always be found on the Battalion foot- ball and lacrosse teams. A bright spot came into his life Second class year when his ti.it mi. It. in i in , . .11 t.i ■.

WILLIAM EDMUND McCLURE Speedy 2nd Company Bill came to USNA from the hills of West Virginia. While at the Academy, Bill per- 1 formed well while on the athletic field or in the classroom. Although his grades were J very good, " Speedy " still found time to en- 1 gage in such extracurricular activities as j bridge playing or reading Sam Durell or J Shell Scott mystery novels.

EREMIAH JAMES McGUIRE Mac 2nd Company Well, sun, go down the road a piece and ear to the left . . . " — and who do we asso- iate this with? Why " Mac " McGuire, the ttle Irishman, who is probably more proud f the fact that he is from the state of lame than any other midshipman to gradu- te from the Naval Academy. His training at lullis Prep must have prepared him well " Canoe U. " for we frequently saw his ame on the Superintendent ' s List.

Although he found the sack more inviting than the gridiron, his athletic abilities were welcomed on all com- pany teams. His quick wit and winning per- sonality made Denny a friend to everyone. His interest in academics enabled him to breeze throLgh his studies. During Youngster Cruise, Denny discovered that he was not to be the best sailor.

FREDERICK JACK WINDLE, Jr. Jack 2nd Company Jack came to Navy from the prairielands of Nebraska. Plebe year proved to be no great problem except for the minimum of time he was able to use the rack. Accordingly, this Nebraskan ' s upperclass years were high- lighted by frequent and prolonged sessions on the blue trampoline. Jack ' s main interest was just having a good time and not one to let studies interfere with this basic curricu- lum, Jack had little trouble with the aca- demic departments. One notable exception to this was a shuffle with the Skinny de- partment Second class year. With the excep- tion of Sunday afternoons, when he went through a transformation into " Frederick, the Dismal, " Jack possessed a cheerful and out- going personality, which will assure the Navy of a fine and dedicated officer. Bancroft Hall is asleep. ROBERT BRUCE WOODRUFF Woody 2nd Company Bruce left the gay resort town of Hyannis, Massachusetts; home of presidents, town meetings, beach parties and some Repub- licans, to study in the land of the crab and killer fogs. His academic ability kept him on the Superintendent ' s List for four years and earned him the respect of all of his classmates. Although a hard hitting touch football player and salty Dinghy Sailor, Bruce still found time to carry on a running battle with anyone who questioned his Irish ances- try or political affiliations. Known for his velvet voice, he contributed to the reputa- tion of both the Glee Club and Catholic Choir. Aviation summer convinced him that flying was still in the Orville Wright stage and he has chosen Navy line after gradua- tion from the Academy. 1 The watch is maintained WEBSTER MATTING WRIGHT, Jr. Web 2nd Company Web, a Hoosier, entered the Academy in re- sponse to an ardent desire to be a member of the military forces.

Al- though academics were not his forte, he worked hard at his studies and was always willing to engage in a conversation, espe- cially about the military. A great interest in his chosen career indicates that he will work hard and reap the maximum benefits from his military career. First Wing reporting secure Should we wake the OOD? JOHN ARTHUR ALICH, Jr. John 3rd Company John came to USNA from Burlingame, Cal- ifornia. He brought with him interests in golf and academic achievement and once here, picked up interests in bridge and pool. John ' s academic prowess is shown by the stars he wears and his name always appeared on the " Supt ' s List. " John ' s weekends were filled with pretty drags. His way with the women could be attested to by his worn out class crest. When John wasn ' t studying or in a bridge tournament, he could be found on the intramural sports field, participating in com- pany fieldball and on the cross country teams. John hopes to get into the nuclear engineering phase of the Navy. The nuclear power program will benefit from such a dedicated man. JOHN TAYLOR ANDREWS, III John 3rd Company J. T. hails from just about anywhere, as is the case with almost all " army brats. " John spent a year with our blood brothers, the NROTC, at Kansas University on a scholar- ship whereupon he decided that there was nothing like the big time and migrated to the shores of the Severn. Johnny was always busy, as evidenced by his constant presence on the " Supt ' s List. " The Brigade Activities Committee could always depend on his help- ing hand as Tecumseh will testify during the football season. Sports are hardly ne- glected on an intramural level and his sense of humor leaves nothing to be desired. Johnny seems to be headed toward Navy Air, a challenge that he is well equipped to conquer. RICHARD JOSEPH ARNSWALD Arnsie 3rd Company Dick, better known as Arnsie, came to the Naval Academy from the " Land of Lincoln, " DeKalb, Illinois. With him, he brought his easy going midwestern manners which have won him many friends. His main interest at the Academy was the feminine set. He could be found dragging every weekend.

His work with the BAC, his sense of humor and his swinging es- capades, will long be remembered. While never starring in academics, Rich has dem- onstrated, to the envy and disbelief of his classmates, how to get good grades with a minimum of effort. His distinguished Naval career has thus far been highlighted by the pursuit of pad time, bridge games, and beau- tiful women. Athletic periods find Rich out- standing in intramural soccer and gymnas- tics. His success so far indicates the begin- ning of a long and successful future. GENE MELVIN BOWMAN Gene 3rd Company Gene came to the Academy from Corsicana, Texas after a year of college. He was almost as proud of his home state as he was of his girl, who lived there.

C. and Southwest High of Miami, Florida. What he lacked in size he more than made up in aggressiveness and sheer desire to gain a regular spot on the Plebe football team. Though an injury im- paired his future Varsity dreams, he con- tinued as an active member of several Intra- mural sports squads. Aware of the benefits of a good education, Gordy was keenly inter- ested in his schooling and managed to main- tain a respectable academic average. With an excellent combination of congeniality and perseverance, Gordy will prove to be an asset to whatever branch he chooses. LYNN DEWEY CARTER Curly 3rd Company Lynn, from the western plains of Syracuse, Kansas, decided to take his first look at the sea and the Navy after a year at the College of Emporia in Emporia, Kansas. Lynn quickly proved that a midwesterner could easily adapt to Navy ways by excelling in intramural sports including soccer, fieldball, and track. Lynn gave further evidence of his abilities by earning his airborne wings after Second class summer. He displayed an en- viable ease with academic pursuits through- out his four years. Add Curly ' s friendly man- ner and sharp sense of humor and the result is the " Syracuse Flash. " Ability, determina- tion and leadership are qualities that will make Lynn ' s Navy future all that he deserves. I KEITH EDWARD CLAXTON Keith 3rd Company Keith, a man of Air Force parentage, came to USNA from the Philippine Islands, where he led a carefree life under sunny skies. Shocked by the change of climate and rigorous man- ner of living, he made a quick reorganization and was soon able to regain his casual man- ner and healthy interest in the opposite sex (which often proved to be mutual). Hunting around, Keith found another familiar medium and was soon stroking his afternoons away as a member of the Varsity swimming team. With a remarkable interest in the things around him, and the ability to adapt easily to unorthodox situations, " Clax " will fit in and do well anywhere he goes. He swears that this will never be more than 30° north or south of the equator. JOHN SCOTT CUSHING John 3rd Company John, hailing from the Empire State, came to USNA after a year at NAPS. John was able to make the transition to midshipman with a minimum of stress and strain. Plebe year presented no great problem to John and it was not uncommon to see him in yachting dress. His easy going manner has certainly been an example for all of us to follow. On the academic side, after early frustra- tions in Plebe Bull and Dago, John proved his worth in the technical subjects. John ' s major here at USNA has been mostly sleep- ing, eating and bridge, and he could be 4.0 in all three. Not one to overdo sports, it is not uncommon to hear him ask, " Let ' s get up a game of Bridge. " With his overall abil- ities and good attitude toward life, John will certainly find success in the Navy. and lights burn late and long.

Always standing high in academics, Sam never failed to attain the Superintendents List and as a star man could often be found studying avidly over one of his many overloads. This same studi- ous spirit enabled Sam to excel on the USNA Debate Team where his enthusiasm did much to discourage the competition. With his keen ability and desire to learn, Sam will be welcomed aboard any sub- marine in the fleet. JEROME HAROLD CUSMANO Twink 3rd Company Jerome, known as " Jer " or even better yet, as " Twink, " came to the Academy from the relatively large mid-western city of Waterloo, Iowa. His dynamic personality and congenial fun loving attitude, place him as one of the best liked guys in the class. All this, together with the fact that he is a man of his word, gives him a combination of qualities that mark him as a man who will make people want to follow him as a leader. Twink ' s varied interests are certain to find applica- tion in his vocation as a Naval Line officer. There is no doubt in any of his close friend ' s minds that he " has what it takes. " 95 MATTHEW STROHM EVANS, Jr. Strohm 3rd Company Strohm is one of the few that have lived on Severnside all of his life. His kind word and smile would, without a doubt, stand him in good stead with the antique capital ' s Cham- ber of Commerce. But he still has not been able to convince his own roommate that Crabtown is part of the " land of pleasant living. " He never particularly worried about his studies with fine diversions like winning four " Ns " and dragging his lovely OAO on the weekends. He will complement any ward- room with his good naturedness and any deck with his ability to get the job done. Navy Air is his aim, lest the first wing eye strain catch him and bend his career down another channel.

Hailing from McLean, Vir- ginia, he came to Navy after seeing much of the world and spending a year at V.P.I.

After a years at NAPS, Skeeter, as he is commonly called by his fellow squash play- ers (for his hustle and unrelenting drive on the court), has been a stalwart on Navy ' s squash team. During his Youngster year, the squash team played at West Point and he came back with the new nickname of " hearts and flowers.

His other plans include marriage and getting off the east coast, after his graduation. WILLIAM ROBERT HAINES Bill 3rd Company Bill didn ' t stand number one in our class, he didn ' t baffle sports writers for new adjec- tives to describe his athletic prowess, and he wasn ' t president of anything. But Bill is still tops on everyone ' s list for being a steady, consistent and easy going person that can be counted on for anything. A graduate of Detroit ' s Redford High School and veteran of one year at Michigan Uni- versity, he is sure to be held in the same position of high esteem by his shipmates in the Fleet as he was, by his classmates here at the Academy. DAVID GEORGE HANSEN Big Dave 3rd Company Dave, the pride and joy of South Milwaukee, came to USNA directly from high school. He brought along his flair for the human- ities which he continuously displayed in four years of " slash " bull. Other subjects did not come as easily and his grades were the result of many long hours burning the mid- night oil. Dave was a plebe fencer and a fair weather sailor. His tremendous per- formances in the Masqueraders ' productions were a yearly occurrence. His happy home on the fourth deck of Bancroft Hall had the reputation of being the most " lived in " room at the Academy, complete with stereo, tape deck, marble top desks, and many other unmentionable goodies.

A gifted writer, he soon became head correspondent for his company and any young lady in re- ceipt of one of his masterpieces can attest to his ability with pen and ink. Never know- ing when to quit, he always got himself into trouble with one girl or another. Steve ' s seri- ous side came to light when he became one of Navy ' s top broad jumpers. A natural for Navy Air, because of his congeniality and thoroughness, he will always be held in the highest regard by those who know him. 9fl may call upon those who must remain alert and ready.

As an athlete, Bob displayed his competitive ability as a member of the Var- sity Track and Soccer teams. " Sunshine Bobby " was too interested in dragging to study on weekends but his high average al- lowed him to follow his academic interests by taking two overloads per semester in such subjects as Philosophy and Politics.

Although small of stature, he has a great amount of determina- tion and efficiency, which he displays in carrying out his tasks. Not a standout in sports, he still enjoys being outdoors and participating in group functions. Church Sem- inar was a favorite with Hank because he enjoyed talking about and trying to unearth the origin of his religious truths and beliefs.

Though not a " slash, " he took the Academy curriculum in stride. How- ever, fearing long hours with the books would be a danger to his health, Ben spent many hours in his faithful rack. By far his biggest pastime was weekend dragging. Ben ' s course seems to point toward the Marine Corps and his strong character and high ideals will lead him to great heights in a great organ- ization. DONALD ALBERT WELLMAN Don 3rd Company Although a fine high school athlete, Don suffered a shoulder injury in his Plebe Year which cost the Academy the benefit of his talents. However, he was able to compete with the Plebe Rifle team and participate on several intramural teams. A near-authority on Broadway shows, his interest in music and entertainment was fully demonstrated here at USNA. His devoted service on Sun- day mornings as worship leader and teacher for the youngsters living in the yard, clearly reflects this attitude of service. Despite his several lengthy cruises, Don found the future Mrs. Wellman a mere block from his home in Cincinnati. Dianne will make a fine Navy wife for this future Navy liner. THOMAS THEODORE WIEL Tom 3rd Company Bringing to the Academy his keen spirit of competition and an inability to do less than his very best in every field of endeavor, Tom was the winner in almost every intramural track and cross country race in which he ran. He also devoted himself to getting the most education he could in his years here. No one could say that he didn ' t try his hardest in everything and this made him a definite asset to the third company. Proud of his home state of Minnesota, and quite fond of one of the state ' s young women, Tom has his career sights set on Navy Air. does not awaken them. JOHN EDWARD WILLIAMS Polar Bear 3rd Company John came to the Academy from Dubuque Senior High School. The many evenings he spent with his nose in his books were re- flected in his excellent grades. However, no amount of study seemed to help John speak the German language. He often referred to the German Department as the " hunter " and he as the " hunted. " He enjoyed all sports and seemed to excel in anything he undertook, especially fieldball, handball, wrestling and sailing (with female shipmates). His person- ality ind good sense of humor made him a friend to all. He had boundless energy, even for frequent moonlight inspections of the secret recesses of Bancroft Hall.

Chuck ' s warm personality and ready humor made him well liked by all of his classmates. Chuck came to us with a driving ambition to don his wings as a Naval Aviator. After graduation, he plans to attain that goal and lend his friendly smile to the ranks of Navy fliers. You say the MOOW went to bed without piping down the watch?

Graduating from Cathedral Latin High in Cleveland, Ohio, he went to Columbian Prep, in D.C. for a year. During his first two years, Butch ' s main difficulty was with the Dago Dept.

Since a back injury has kept him from playing Varsity football, Butch has been active in company intramurals, where he has shown a fierce competitiveness. He is also a member of the Chapel Catholic Choir. Butch has always wanted to go Navy Air, where he is sure to be a great asset to our Navy ' s air arm.

While at the Academy, he was con- scientious in his studies, and found little trouble in academics, except for a few late nights with the Bull department. His greatest attribute was his good natured per- sonality which was put aside only on the gridiron each Fall with the " Mighty Mites. " Besides his love for athletics, there was al- ways a place in Joe ' s weekend to acquaint the opposite sex with the Yard and Annap- olis. Sincere and hard working, Boets was a true credit to the Naval Academy and will be a valuable asset to any organization. DONALD CRAIG BURBICK Burbs 4th Company Craig left the banks of the beautiful Ohio and journeyed to the " Chesapeake Uni- versity " on the Severn. He could be seen daily, playing golf and studying and he ex- celled in both endeavors. Craig will be re- membered for his many pet projects such as squash, basketball, math and electronics.

Rita Kt7C ' •■ar fpdB -X: n the Ka tfes r i to I •son ?: WILLIAM LLOYD CLAYBORN Clay 4th Company Clay came to the Academy fresh out of Roosevelt High School in Fresno, California. He had the normal amount of trouble with his plebe year, but soon learned that hard work could bring him more than the average amount of success in academics. When not at the books, he could be found sharing his time equally between the Computer Lab and the Gymnastic team. Clay was rarely found without a date for the weekend and this often led to more than the average Mid ' s complications with women. Clay has a wide range of interests including sports cars, hi-fi and water polo.

He claims Falls Church, Virginia as his present hometown. At USNA, Duke directed his ath- letic abilities toward tennis, having been a standout in four sports during high school. At the Academy, his academic effort was directed mainly at exams. Not known as a " sweat, " Mike did acquire the nickname, " The Duke of Gouge " because of his thor- ough research for each subject. His friendly personality and winning smile, were never hidden from the women who are a ranking like. Also high on the list of favorites is his soft " blue friend " with whom he is often found. With his personality, Mike should fol- low others in his family in becoming one of the best officers in our class. JULIUS BLOXHAM DELL, Jr. Bill 4th Company Bill came to the Academy via Little Rock Central High School and Marion Military In- stitute of Marion, Alabama. This introduction to military life at Marion, prepared him well for life here at the Academy and he had lit- tle trouble adjusting to the rigors of plebe year. The " blue trampoline " was a little known luxury to Bill for the majority of his time was spent studying. However, this never detracted from his always pleasant disposi- tion and sense of humor. Bill ' s athletic en- ergies added much to the Company ' s intra- mural teams. Bill ' s comfortable personality and energetic perseverance will certainly be assets to the command he joins after gradu- ation. .1 JACK WILCOX EVERETT, Jr. JacK 4th Company Jack came to the shores of the Severn straight from Nyack High School with a fine background in academics and an overwhelm- ing interest in wrestling. While at the Acad- emy, he put forth an excellent performance in his studies which gained for him an almost permanent place on the " Supt ' s List.

ROCKWOOD HENRY GILLETTE The Rock 4th Company After graduating from South Pasadena High School, " The Rock " spent a year at U.C.L.A. getting a taste of the ole college life. How- ' ever, the following year, he traded his surf- board and the sunny beaches of California for a slide-rule and a Navy education. While at the Naval Academy, his only disagreement with academics was with the Bull depart- ment during his plebe year. Rocky was a giant in size as well as a hard man to tangle with on the wrestling mat. Yet to his classmates, Rocky ' s size is dwarfed by his generosity and amicable nature. Being basically " gungy for green, " Rocky should go far in the service of his country. for the necessary tasks of a midshipman Ya you heard me right, the OOD said he wants to see all my shoes shined by reveille ANTONIO AUGUSTO GODINHO Tony 4th Company Tony was born in Lisbon, Portugal where he lived until his family moved to Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Following high school, he spent a year at the University of Rhode Island before coming to USNA. Plebe year academ- ics were fruit, with the exception of Bull, but the succeeding years found Tony holed up in various hideaways studying to all hours. His classmates always found him willing to explain some point in Steam or Skinny. When he wasn ' t studying or playing lacrosse, a quick pad check would usually reveal him to be in the " land of never. " Tony hopes to stay away from the raging seas by sailing beneath them in a Nuclear Sub- marine. which iikiij range from polishing to polishing CARLTON ALBERT GRIGGS Carl 4th Company Carl, whose home is Richmond, Virginia, came to the Academy after two years of college at V.P.I., and one year at Sullivan Prep in D.C. He was always known as one of the hardest workers in his class.

As it was, he managed to excel in intramural sports and always maintained top physical condition. With his winning personality, Carl kept a large group of friends and always had the respect of those under him. It is certain whichever service he chooses, it will be gain- ing a conscientious, hard working oflicer.

Constantly kidded about being the shortest man in the class, " Hose " always seemed to retaliate with a witty remark. Because of his stature, his excellent athletic ability was limited to Bri- gade boxing and intramurals. Next to boxing, his favorite past times were the rack, TV, model building and an occasional weekend drag. Never in any serious academic difficul- ties, he found his only enemy to be the Exec- utive Department. His fondest memories will always be the summer cruise. Jerry ' s over-all ability and desire to get ahead, will definitely enable him to come out on top.

He came to USNA with an outstanding high school record from Ocean City, New Jersey. Although always an asset to a party, he constantly maintained a Superintendent ' s List average. The Varsity Dinghy Sailing Team profited from his sailing hobby and he was valuable to the Company Cross Country team too. Matt ' s attitude to- ward the sea favors " over " rather than " on. " His winning personality, plus his ability to overcome obstacles, should send him far in his career as a Naval Officer. a pair of shoes or a belt buckle. JOE INCE Joe 4th Company Joe came to the Naval Academy from Hous- ton, Texas where he was an outstanding high school student and athlete. He mastered all the challenges presented by life at USNA, and could be looked to as a leader in what- ever he did.

" Big Dave, " better known to us as " Rene, The Sly Fox, " came to the Academy from NAPS, where he was the Ath- lete of the Year. At the Academy, Rene took much time from studies to be the biggest man on the basketball team for 3 years. Now he is worried about getting his 6 ' 5 " frame into a cockpit after graduation. He needn ' t worry about anything though, for any man with the ability and human warmth that he possesses, will certainly be a credit to the Navy, his parents and to himself.

" He always built up a high level of suspense at exam time, and found all his classmates were 100% be- hind him. For what Hank lacked in book sense, he more than made up in common sense.

On the gridiron, Tom certainly proved himself to be a " mighty mite " and in the pool, after finally figuring out how to keep from smashing his head, he proved to be one of Navy ' s best divers. The only thing more satisfying to Tom than a Navy victory, was leave and the song tests that followed. Tom always found time for his true love; his pad. Tom ' s sense of humor has been equaled by very few here at USNA and along with his desire to meet a challenge, his latest goal, that of turning Navy Blue into an off color green, should meet with complete success.

FIFTH COMPANY SIXTH COMPANY SEVENTH COMPANY EIGHTH COMPANY MORNING At reveille, day officially begins, but it has already been underway for many, long before. Window closers scurry about their tasks, papers are delivered, the second section watch posts. And then . . . Reveille. Every year, the bells seem a little louder, getting up a little harder. Plebes hurry to be on time for the morning come-around, the practiced first class computes carefully the exact time in seconds required for reading the comics, the sports section, shaving and dressing ... in that order ... to slide into formation just as the bell rings. Morning meal formation is a routine which must be tolerated but hardly participated in with gusto. It is occasionally enlivened by a sur- prise visit from the OOD. Inside, or outside, it is still a rude awakening. The day starts to take on its own character after breakfast. Dust seems to have accumulated everywhere in the past day and mirrors require constant cleaning. Does the laundry go out today, or can we just pull the bed back together again, hoping the bedspread covers all? With or without reefers,, mate? What about seamanship afloat? Gather up what you need for morning classes; another academic day has begun. ■-• « , gs " ! . i I r • t .— . PHILIP GILLESPIE ASHER, JR.

Old Gray 5th Company After two years as a part time engineering student and a full time fraternity man (Phi Sigma Kappa) at Loyola University, Los An- geles, Jack came to Navy to devote his efforts to becoming a career service officer. Being an Air Force junior, he feels obligated to return to that service upon graduation. Jack ' s achievements in racket sports has been ham- pered by his academic endeavors. His primary academic interest is in the field of weapons systems engineering. An Arizonian by choice, Old Gray has never gotten used to the weather in Annapolis. Cold weather remains to him something one should read about in the newspapers. Throughout his class, Jack has won many friends with his quick smile and ready humor. CHARLES FRANCIS CULBERTSON, JR. Charlie 5th Company Charlie, with his " Cheshire cat grin, " was cer- tainly a star man in every sense of the word. After two years at the University of Rochester, Charlie adjusted to the routine at " Canoe U, " and after a few tense Russian finals, he man- aged to climb right to the top of his class academically. But all of his time was not spent on the books, as he amply showed his athletic talents in Plebe crew and in bat- talion track, where he led the high jumpers to victory. Although quite a ladies man, he was too busy to really devote much time to the fair sex, much to the chagrin of many Philadelphia beauties. This merely demon- strates his devotion to his work and career. ROBERT CHARLES DAVENPORT Bob 5th Company It wasn ' t often that Bob left his cherished pad, but whenever he managed to get under- way, most people were amazed by his physi- cal coordination and his sharp mind. With a minimum of effort, until a big push for the important tests, he kept his grades around the " Supt ' s List " level, while he also concen- trated on shooting hoops for the Navy Five. In high school, Bob starred athletically and took an active part in the usual extra en- deavors. The year that he spent at the Uni- versity of Maine, gave him a definite head- start on Plebe year. After competitive sports, Bob ' s interests go to hunting and fishing in the Maine woods. Weekends would find him dating that special student nurse. For the future, he will give Navy Air the benefit of his services, as a high flying jet jockey. As reveille approaches, we think ROBERT PAUL DEMCHIK Demo 5th Company Demo came to the Academy after enlisting in the Navy and subsequently being selected as outstanding officer material. After a year at NAPS, he came to Annapolis to make his mark. Always ready to " ham it up, " this Cleveland entertainer appeared on stage several times while a midshipman. Starting with our Plebe summer Talent Show, he clowned his way through " happy hours, " company parties and the Musical Club ' s shows. Bob also gave active support to several intramural teams and lent his voice to the Catholic Choir. As a result of his conscientious book work, he was a " Supt ' s List " student throughout his stay at USNA. No matter which branch of the Navy he chooses, Demo ' s ability will distin- guish him as a fine officer and leader. the night has passed too quickly. JOSEPH GEORGE DIMMICK Joe 5th Company Joe spent his years at USNA " flying " from one thing to the next. One suspects that the Phantom II model on his desk indicates his determination to continue in an airborne status. East Tawas, Michigan is Joe ' s home, but truthfully, Joe is a converted Annapolitan by now. His weekends were marked by drag- ging a local queen or by sailing with the Ocean Sailing Squad. During the week, he contributed a great deal. He has worked for the " Trident, " both writing and drumming up subscriptions and was quick to volunteer for responsibility within his company. A particu- lar talent of Joe ' s was his ability to size-up others, and this will serve him well as an officer during his future career with the Navy. JOHN THOMAS DONNELLY, JR. Bean 5th Company Upon graduation from high school, John made the decision to switch from Church to State. As a result, John journeyed from the " Windy City " to Annapolis to become a Mid- shipman. After a silent year as a plebe, Bean settled down to a quiet, relaxed routine at Navy. He was very independent, always mak- ing his decisions on a problem ' s merits, and could always be counted on for a strong re- buttal should someone try to unduly influence his ideas. His sense of humor that often lead to a practical joke or two, Bean will make an excellent addition to the Navy ' s officer ranks. An enthusiast for sports, Bean was one of the men who pioneered Rugby at the Academy. He is looking forward to the day he receives his ' wings of gold. " RICHARD BRUCE DUNN Rich 5th Company Rich came to the Academy from Bozeman, Montana, and a successful senior year high- lighted by his being named a National Merit Scholar. He continued his academic achieve- ment at Annapolis by standing in the top of his class and being a full participant in the Academy ' s elective program. He was actively engaged in athletics and became one of the top handball players in his four years at USNA. Well versed in sports and current events, Rich ' s interests were primarily in the field of politics and government. Hoping to do postgraduate study, Rich ' s ability and academic initiative will stand him in good stead in the coming years. PAUL HERBERT FENTON 5th Company Paul came to Navy after a year ' s stay at Nor- wich University. He claims that he is from Natick but his classmates soon realized that his home, at heart, is Quantico. Packed away in his suitcase, on his arrival, was a can of Brasso, a can of paste wax and his pipe. One of Paul ' s credo ' s was " if it wouldn ' t shine or wasn ' t green, it wasn ' t worth having. " Paul always demonstrated all the attributes of a squared away midshipman and a potential Marine. Well liked because of his friendly manner, Paul found his calling while working with the plebes on the Second and First Class Supervisory Detail. Dragging was one of his favorite pastimes. Whether it is in- fantry or the air, it will always be the Marine Corps for this midshipman. His i him : : :.v ' .

He took elective courses in Literature and was active in the Foreign Relations Club and the Portuguese Club. His capabilities having been recognized by his classmates, he was chosen to represent his company on the Brigade Activities Committee. His particular ability in public speaking led him to represent the Academy at many debate tournaments at other eastern colleges. Marcus ' academic success and keen under- standing of world affairs, will prove him to be a valuable asset to the Fleet. GEORGE ALLAN GABORIC Al 5th Company Al came to the Academy after one year at Case Institute in Cleveland, Ohio, the city which he calls home. On entering the Acad- emy, Al took to the rigorous way of life and has proved himself each term by the stars he wears on his lapel. Al worked out almost every afternoon, with one of the intramural teams, and his perserverance has turned many a near loss to a win. His other en- deavors at USNA include work on the " Lucky Bag " and " Log " staffs, as well as the Bat- talion representative to the Math and Science Seminar. Al hopes that his future will be with the Nuclear Submarines. With Al ' s spirit and devotion to study and service he will be a credit to the profession and an outstanding citizen of his country. JOHN WILLIAM GARBER, JR. John 5th Company Coming to us from the Old Dominion, John was the kind of classmate we were all glad to have. His unswerving loyalty to his friends and sense of responsibility, made it hard to find a better potential officer. John had little trouble with academics, and could always be found assisting a faltering classmate. An avid ocean sailor, John qualified for the command of the Naval Academy Schooner, " Freedom. " Although his interest ran from young ladies to the construction of lasers, his fondest dreams lay in Navy Air. With his enthusiasm and ch eerfulness, we are sure that John will be a fine officer and aviator that we will all be proud to call a classmate. we acknowledge our rooms turned out PETER DAVID GREENBERG Pete 5th Company Pete was raised in Brooklyn, where he gradu- ated from Stuyvesant High School.

His interest in sports was keen and to keep in shaDe, he ran with cross country every year. While on Youngster Cruise he fell in love with the sea and with the destroyers that he looks forward to commanding during the years to come. Pete will always be remembered for his quiet personality and his unquestionable honesty. . . . but cannot guarantee that we are awake, though standing . . . EUGENE CLEVELAND HOLLOWAY III Gene 5th Company Hi, tust thing Gene did after arriving at the Academy was to unpack his hammer, saw and a sack of nails. With these tools and his prodigious artistic talent, he constructed some of the finest sets ever to decorate the stage of Mahan Hall. The second thing he did, was to compose one of many humorous poems for the edification and entertainment of his friends and classmates. Gene ' s sense of humor, ambition to succeed and willing na- ture have placed him high in the Brigade standings and in his comrade ' s esteem. His dedication and ability will make Gene an asset to whatever branch of the Navy he chooses. JOHN MCBRIDE HOLMES John 5th Company After spending two years in the fraternal arms of a large prep school in Berkeley, California, John decided to give up ROTC and join the Navy. Excelling equally at athletics and aca- demics, John had some trouble in concentrat- ing his interest and shifted his major from Chemistry to Bull and Dago and from cross :ountry to volleyball and somehow always ended up on the winning side.

DOUGLAS JAMES HORTON Doug 5th Company Outstanding is a rather strong superlative, but its use is justified in speaking of Doug. The word is applicable in light of his many abilities and his strong competitive spirit. Doug ' s academic performance was most note- worthy. His quick, analytical mind led him through the standard curriculum and numer- ous electives. This same competitive spirit helped Doug achieve success in plebe gym- nastics and battalion track and as a varsity debater. Personal discipline has opened many doors for Doug and will certainly con- tinue to do so in the future. Doug ' s future includes postgraduate study and an oppor- tunity to excel in the Navy.

Working parallel bars in Gymnastics, Bill is well known for his ability to work under pres- sure and come through at the crucial moment. Hard work enabled Bill not only to excel in the Gym, but also in the classrooms, therefore the " Supt ' s List " frequently contained his name.

Once at Annapolis, Old Man Taylor took such a liking to the Trade School that he decided to become a member of the elite five-year men, with a little help from the Academic Board. Tony was one of those few who liked plebe year, but this love was supplanted in the coming years for a love of weekends with his 0. A. 0. from across the seas. Tony would like to say that the Academy is only a prep school for New London and subs, like two other Taylors before him. Wherever he finds his calling, Tony will be a welcome member of the fleet.

GEORGE McMILLIAN DAVIS Mac 6th Company Born and reared in the deep south, Mac en- joyed a year at the University of Alabama before coming to the Academy. Strictly a warm weather sailor, he spent long hours with the Varsity 150 ' s each fall and after a brief flirtation with plebe track, equally long hours recuperating in his rack during the winter. Not noted for intense academic effort, he still took on the workload necessary for a major and was even occasionally found on the Superintendent ' s List.

A good baseball player and an even finer football player, he contributed much to his company and bat- talion teams. He did much to make things in the Sixth Company brighter also. Even during the " Dark Ages, " Paul always seemed to have a cheerful word and was never without the jokes to enliven a dull study hour. Academics were seldom a problem for Paul and he usu- ally managed to get in his share of pad time. His quick wit and presence of mind should be of great asset to him. WINFORD GERALD ELLIS Jerry 6th Company Georgia Tech ' s loss was Navy ' s gain when Jerry decided on a Navy career.

Par- ticipating on the cross country, volleyball, and pistol teams, Len demonstrated his ath- letic ability though the lure of the blue tram- poline kept him from continually practicing. Len worked on the " Log, " with the French Club and in the NACA. Perhaps the most im- portant event of his life occurred during his Youngster Cruise, when he met his financee in Philadelphia. The Navy Line and the De- stroyer Fleet will find Len to be a capable Naval officer. ready to respond to a come-around . . . i J Major Dan Flagg, USMC, dedicated, confident, proud . . . who ' s he kidding?

Because of his dependability and willingness to help others, Mike will find success in any phase of life in the Navy.

Rusty 6th Company A native of Maryland, Rusty hails from Ellicott City. He turned down a scholarship to become a Navy regular. Rusty ' s height served him well in his endeavors on various intramural teams. When not engaged in keeping physically fit, Rusty could be found with his nose in the books. Although not one of his favorite pas- times, he applied himself to the task and maintained a good overall average. Rusty is looking forward to a career in Navy Air. An asset to any group, Rusty will have no trouble making a success out of his chosen profes- sion. suitable, in fact, for most any time of day. WILLIAM RANDOLPH HARTWELL Bill 6th Company Bill came to the " Severn River Rest Home " from San Diego, California, after spending a year at Severn Prep School. While at USNA, Bill instituted his theory of wasted effort — graduating with minimum effort. Bill partici- pated in the intramural sports program, and was a member of the Stamp Club. He rarely missed a day of liberty either at the Academy or on Cruise. He has left a trail of beer cans from Key West to Boston. His future plans include a career in the Supply Corps where he will make a fine and dedicated officer. RICHARD DAVIS HAVICAN Dick 6th Company Prior to coming to USNA, Dick spent a year at Northeastern University in Boston and evi- dently absorbed a good deal, since he navi- gated thru his four years with the greatest of ease. This allowed him plenty of time to dis- play his athletic talents on the Battalion ' football and Gym teams, as well as hosting visitors, while on the Reception Committee. He managed all this without frustrating the social side of life, being one of the fortunate men who found life in Annapolis enjoyable. He intends continuing this habit of " pleasant living " as a member of the Navy ' s Air Arm. MARK WARREN HOWARD Mark 6th Company Mark is from Kenmore, New York, and after spending two years at Northeastern Univer- sity studying civil engineering, he decided to come to Navy. Academics were never his strong point, as " dago " almost got to him Plebe year. He found his love in ocean sailing during Youngster year and got his command the following year. Although interested in aviation, Mark will be entering the submarine service upon graduation, where his skills and efforts will be justly rewarded. 1 The OOD makes the rounds to be sure we ' re on our way. I fill • ' L Here comes Santa Claus Who. what, me, sir?! DONALD WILLET JONES Jonsey 6th Company Jonsey knew more about the Navy when he entered USNA than most of us will know at graduation. He became acquainted with the s ervice in his hometown of San Diego, Cali- fornia. As the youngest Mid in the Company, Jonsey quietly attacked his studying with such vigor that it was often necessary to rescue him from the books. Ever dauntless in academic pursuit, Jonsey managed a fine record in Science, Math and a variety of overloads, topped by many terms on the Superintendent ' s List. Although his vast store of naval facts made him the " answer man " to every plebe in the company, he used it as the foundation on which to start a career in the submarine Navy. RICHARD GORDON KATZ Rick 6th Company Rick came to USNA from West Hartford, Con- necticut with one of the most complete little bk ' ck books ever compiled. Although Rick haa little trouble with the books, he was still one of the busiest mids the Academy ever produced. If he wasn ' t up painting the Laundry smoke stack, he was working on the Trident Calendar. There was never a dull moment when Rick would start on one of his wild tales of Brazil, or his plans for the future. If Rick doesn ' t go Silent Service, he ' ll probably open a lucrative Playboy Club in New York. ROGER MEYERS KEITHLY, JR. Roger 6th Company Being a Navy junior, Roger has lived in many places, though he claims Hawaii as his home. It is from this " land of sunshine " that Roger received his warm humor and carefree man- nerisms. The Academic Departments have not recognized Roger ' s ability, and so he has had more than his share of difficulties. With his determination and drive, Roger has overcome the obstacles in his path and has moved up the ladder of rank and responsibility. Whether he stays in the Navy for four or forty, Roger will be an asset to his service and his country. We hasten through the ablutions, the dressing WALTER WILSON KESLER Walt 6th Company Coming to the Academy from Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire, Walt was highly qualified, both academically and athletically. At the Naval Academy, as at Phillips Exeter, Walt has stood at the top of his class. Walt is held in high regard by his classmates, who take full advantage of his good nature and academic prowess by bringing their unsolv- able problems to him for solution. The name Kesler has come to be associated with out- standing achievement. In whatever branch of the service Walt chooses, his reputation will remain the same. rushing with great intensity ALFRED CHRISTOPHER KOSMARK Al 6th Company Al was raised in Brooklyn, New York and his pride in this great city, has been evident to one and all of us, since his arrival here at the Academy. His love of reading and his appre- ciation of the finer things in life have rounded off his education beautifully and will make him a very definite asset to any group in which he may find himself. It is sad that his main desire, that of serving in submarines, has been thwarted by bad eyesight. His next choice, the Supply Corps, should set him in line for a career rich with experience and variety. DONALD ORR LACEY, JR. Don 6th Company Though he calls Washington D.C. his home, Don came to the Academy directly from prep school in Andover, Maine. As a prepster, he learned a new game called Squash. He learned so well, that for three years, he graced both the Varsity Squash and Tennis teams. Also doing well in Academics, Don made the Superintendent ' s List and wore stars with • ty. Don majored in both French and Mathematics. By spending at least seven hours each night with the books, he was able to spend his weekends with his little femi- riend from Bethesda, Maryland. Don is headed toward a fine career, following his fathers footsteps, in the Supply Corps. CHARLES EDWIN LASKEY Chuck 6th Company Chuck came to the Naval Academy from In- diana, Pennsylvania via Bullis Prep. A real fine athlete, Chuck would have played a lot of football, if a couple of injuries hadn ' t sidelined him in his Plebe year. Since then, he has been a standout in intramurals and has helped the company hold it ' s own in heavyweight football and Softball. Academics were never any problem for Chuck and he will graduate well into the upper half of his class. After graduation, he plans to go Navy Air, where he will do a real fine job. JOSEPH MARIO LEONARDI Joe 6th Company Joe finally found his way to USNA after a short hitch in the Navy, following a year at Rutgers University. Academics have never been a big problem for Joe, leaving him plenty of time to pursue other activities. Be- sides being an active member of the Italian Club, Joe exhibited his keen competitive spirit in Company soccer and Battalion box- ing. No stranger to the dance floor, Joe was always quick to pick up some new step or some sweet young thing. Joe ' s quick wit and presence of mind, will serve him well in his future career. ROBERT WILLIAM LEWIS Bob 6th Company If one word could describe Bob, it would be " enthusiastic. " Ever since he came here from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, everything he chose to undertake, resulted in an outstanding per- formance. Bob ' s interests ranged from the Drum and Bugle Corps to an avid participant in intramural sports, including track and wrestling. Sports weren ' t the only things that he excelled in, for academically, he main- tained a star average, majoring in Social Sci- ence. Bob managed to collect a library of histories and military tactics, which he some- how found time to read. On top of all this, he never turned down a good liberty. Whether it be submarines or the line, Bob ' s enthu- siasm and loyalty will lead to his success. RALPH STOVALL MARTIN Ralph 6th Company Ralph came to the Naval Academy from Chat- tanooga, Tennessee. After graduating from Baylor School in Chattanooga, he attended Vanderbilt University for one year. He was a cadet captain at Baylor and in the NROTC at Vanderbilt. An all around athlete, he played on the Plebe 150 pound football, track and baseball teams. Ralph always showed a gen- uine interest in his studies, yet found time for additional interests, which included guitar playing and reading. Looking forward to his Naval career, a man of Ralph ' s abilities and potential will certainly be a credit to the service. as the monotonous voice drones the minutes . . . WILLIAM MATTHEW MOSCRIP Bill 6th Company Bill hails from Lima, Ohio but also likes to call Florida home. Never one to particularly worry about academics, " Mouse " spent most of his time " conducting " Brahms and Bee- thoven in the B-hole and dusting off his ex- tensive classical record collection. But he always managed to outguess the Steam and Weapons departments at exam time. Though he didn ' t go out until Second Class year, Bill lettered in Varsity Pistol. Whatever field Bill finally decides to choose, you may be assured that much thought and foresight went into his decision. MICHAEL GEORGE MITCHELL, JR. Mitch 6th Company Mitch came to Navy with an endless supply of energy, enthusiasm and an appetite to match. His hustling spirit showed on the athletic field where he eagerly pursued Soc- cer. His achievements were overshadowed only by his intellectual curiosity, conscien- tious study and his eagerness to help his fellow men. Because of all these activities, plus the Italian Club, he was usually too busy for feminine company but was always deeply appreciative of the opposite sex. Mitch will be a fine officer in his career in either Navy Air or the Silent Service. WILLIAM HENRY NATTER, Jr. Bill 6th Company Bill, from Birmingham, Alabama, came to USNA after a year at St. Bernard ' s College in his home state. He joined an older brother, who is presently with the Seventh Fleet and more of the " clan " are sure to follow. Bill has taken an active interest in the Brigade by be- coming a member of the Reception Com- mittee, business manager of the Trident Calendar, and engaging in numerous battalion and company sports. His ready smile and pleasant disposition earned him our friend- ship, while his determination and persever- ance, won him our respect. Bill has long aspired to fly, but whatever capacity he may serve in, he will be a credit to the Academy and his country. ROBERT ERUCE NEWELL, JR. Bruce 6th Company From Ashland, Virginia and a year at Ran- dolph Macon College, Bruce came to USNA to become a naval officer. Though a serious studier, he allotted the remainder of his time to various activities including keeping up with the hometown " Wall Street Journal, " enhancing the English language with his " newellisms " and even laboring to develop into a junior " atlas. " His thoroughness has been proven by his efforts with the Brigade Activities and Public Relations Committees, to make the Army-Navy games, the very best ever. His vivid imagination came to the fore as the Photography Editor of the Trident Calendar. Bruce ' s warmth, personality, and complete unpredictability will take him far in Navy Air. ROBERT BRUCE RICHEY Bruce 6th Company Bruce came to the Academy from Cornell Uni- versity where he was under an NROTC scholarship. A top member of Cornell ' s light- weight crew, he became a valuable member of Navy ' s piebe team. His drive, determina- tion and competitive spirit, both in athletics and academics, have been an inspiration to all of us. Many extracurricular activities have been a big part of his life here, and he is noted as one who can be counted on to do a superior job. His frequent appearances on the Superintendent ' s List is proof of his good academic record. Bruce possesses all those qualities which will make him a success in whatever phase of the Navy he chooses. Sir, you have five minutes to morning meal formation. GLENN WAYNE RUSSELL, JR. Glenn 6th Company With a solid educational background received at R.P.I, and NAPS, Glenn pursued his obliga- tions as a midshipman. Besides excelling in academics, he showed his athletic ability by earning a varsity letter in Crew and being a top contender in Boxing. With his magnetic personality, he accumulated a host of valu- able friends including many of the opposite sex. Glenn expects to continue his Math and Science studies in Nuclear Power School. Upon completion of his educational en- deavors, he is certain to be an asset to the Submarine Fleet. The menu for today is . . . inevitably, scrambled eggs. I could have gone to Yale, Ohio, or UCLA; so I came to Navy where I could get up when I liked ERNEST MALLORY SMITH Ernie 6th Company Ernie was born and raised in Ventura, Cali- fornia. After graduating from high school and a year at the University of California, he gave up his surf board and came east to the Academy to join the Class of ' 64.

ROBERT REID TEALL Bob 6th Company Bob entered the Academy after a year at Hope College in Holland, Michigan. At Navy, he excelled in two relatively unrelated sports; Varsity Tennis and Football. He was equally adept with a racquet or catching passes from his flanker back position, for he won varsity letters in both sports. Bob proved to be a very capable student and took an interest in extra- curricular activities, even though athletics occupied the majority of his time. Bob ' s friendly manner and consideration for others enabled him to make many lasting friend- ships, and his humility in the face of his accomplishments won the respect of all asso- ciated with him. DAVID HOYT WALSH Dave 6th Company Dave came to USNA from Pittsfield, Massa- chusetts, after a year at Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania. An outstanding member of our class, Dave has overloaded in language, steam, math and bull. We all wondered just how he did it, since he spent so much time in the pad. His good fortune in the field of intra- mural sports, was to some degree, offset by his misfortune on blind dates. Dave is an intelligent and aggressive young man and is one of the most active party-goers in the Brigade. His fine mind, ability to work and play hard and his earnest desire to do well, will make him an outstanding officer. The ladders fill with the thunder of eight thousand feet BRUCE EDWARD WELCH Bruce 6th Company After two years as .i Phi Gamma Delta at Kansas University, during which time he was a member of the Naval Reserve, Bruce began his active .inly with Urn le Sam.

He plans on going to On. inlii (i following graduation and is looking forward to duty in the Far East. hastening to breakfast BRUCE WELLS Bruce 6th Company Bruce came to Annapolis after two years with the Fleet. His home is in Los Angeles, Cali- fornia. Academics were easy for Bruce, who spent most of his free time building elec- tronic equipment and sleeping. His height proved valuable in intramural sports, where he excelled in Crew and Volleyball. Bruce ' s strong desire for knowledge should help him to becoming one of the better officers of the Navy. What surprises does the Mess Hall hold for the Brigade this morning? " Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us Up to the first class, down to the second class, across to the Youngsters, it becomes a well ordered routine DAVID GAYNOR AHERN Dave 7th Company Dave may hang his hat in Annapolis but home will always be Hartford, Connecticut. Four years at Loomis School, did little to prepare him for the regimented life at the Academy, but it did give him an independent mind. Youngster cruise and three weeks in colonial Charleston gave him a taste for the gracious living the Navy offers, but serving on the Plebe detail gave him an insight into how the Navy really functions. David spent most of Plebe year at engineering extra instruction, just managing to get through his first semes- ter, with the aid of the measles. Dinghy sail- ing and fieldball were Dave ' s major athletic activities but dragging, reading and two mem- orable acting stints were his other major out- lets. David hopes to make his future serving in the Navy Line. JAMES BODINE AYERS Jim 7th Company Jim came to the Academy from the " Show Me " state, where he graduated at the top of his class, was a member of the National Honor Society and a member of the basket- ball team.

Dividing his time between company sports and his books, Jim earned his stars and a place on the Superintendent ' s List. While majoring in the humanities, he frequently overloaded in English, History and Govern- ment. Jim also participated actively in the Public Relations Club. Jim ' s level headed judgement and devotion to work will be wel- comed in Navy Line. JAMES MANDAVILLE BEALL, JR. Sandy 7th Company Proficient in academics and athletics, Sandy has beaten Army on the tennis courts while earning his Navy stars in the classroom. Hav- ing been an honor student at Scarsdale High School, Sandy easily handled his academics during Plebe year. Continuing his successful academic record as an upperclassman, he majored in Physics. Bitten by the shutterbug at the end of Youngster year, Sandy became a first-rate photographer and this led him to a membership in the Public Relations and Camera Clubs. A friendly smile and steadfast determination won for Sandy the affection of his classmates. Never one to hesitate when he knows what he wan ts, Sandy is pursuing a career with the nuclear arm of the submarine fleet and a pretty hometown lass. Morning prayers are said, breakfast passed . . . RONALD BENIGO Ron 7th Company Before coming to the Academy, Ron spent a year with the Marines on Okinawa and then a tour at NAPS. The academic ability he dis- played there was further demonstrated at the Academy where he wore stars for his four years. Ron was an honor representative and a member of the Public Relations Club. He showed himself to be a tough competitor in Company football and Softball, and as a win- ning Battalion boxer. Ron has proven to be one of the most popular men in his class and a highly motivated worker within his com- pany and the Brigade. Ron is finding it hard to decide whether to return to the Corps or choose a career in the Nuclear Navy. Which- ever he chooses, his ability and drive will assure him of a successful career. met with a variety of reactions. DANIEL WESLEY CHRISTENSEN Dan 7th Company Dan, as the first addition to a Navy family, i ■ in ii plai i ■ a: Italy, Germany and Hawaii, but now calls Mountain View, i ilifornia, his home. Even though offered a chance to attend Stanford University after huh scl I, Dan chose the Naval Academy and he took advantage of all scholastic, sport- nd social opportunities offered and the Superintendent ' s List has never been minus his name. Dan ' s athletic endeavors included Battalion cross country team and the Com- pany lightweight football squad. Dan ' s ad- mitted favorite pastime was escorting young ladies around the Yard and to Hops. Hardly a weekend passed that Dan didn ' t have a sweet young thing waiting for him. The Acad- emy has done much to prepare this young man for his naval career and he is well pre- pared to " assume the highest responsibilities of command.

Indoctrinated early into the Navy way of thinking, a life long ambition was realized with his appointment to the Academy. Barry spent a year at the University of Utah as a member of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity. Not even the Bull department could keep him from the Supt ' s List and stars. Barry ' s sports interests included gymnastics, tennis, com- (i.imv football and Judo, a carry over from I It, ih University. During his four years at the Academy, he was a Cannoneer and an active ham radio operator. He was frequently heard • tpounding the virtues and vices of the fair sex. Barry wore his uniform with great pride and the addition of that wide gold stripe will mother dedicated officer for the Silent ervici WILLIAM EDWARD DAVIS Bill 7th Company A well rounded personality left Richmondville High School when Bill graduated and decided to enter USNA. His extensive background in sports and music made him a valuable asset to the intramural sports squads and to the Chapel Choir. Academics and girls never gave Bill any trouble, but the " system " m; to get in its licks every once in a while. How- ever, even in tins last category, it was more or less a give and take relationship. He wil ' always be remembered for his even temper and quick sense of humor. These, combined with his love for excitement will make Bill an outstanding candidate for the golden wings of Navy Air. 148 ' BRUCE MAXWELL DETTMAN Bruce 7th Company Bruce makes his home in Millingtown, New Jersey. He came to the Academy after gradu- ation from Watchung Hills High School. His major interest has been Class " A " Yawl sail- ing. He qualified for his command during Youngster Year and was placed in command of the Yawl, " Gypsy, " during the spring of Second Class year. This is a distinction gen- erally reserved for First Class. Academics caused Bruce little trouble and he never per- mitted them to interfere with either sailing or dragging. After graduation, he plans to go Navy Line and will be a great asset to his ship and the Navy. JOHN JOSEPH DETTMER John 7th Company John was one of the saltier members of our company, having spent some time aboard the carrier " Intrepid " before coming to the Acad- emy. With this background, it was only natu- ral that he joined the YP Squadron. In be- tween fall and spring " maneuvers " with the Squadron, John took part in company cross country. While many of his classmates burned the midnight oil just trying to pass " juice, " he stood in the top ten of his class at the middle of his Second Class year and set his goal on standing number " one. " " Pope ' s " experience in handling ships gained on both the " Intrepid " and the YPs, and his industry guarantee him a successful career in Navy Line. The meal provides needed sustenance FRANK TRIESTE GRASSI Frank 7th Company When a person lives just north of West Point, it seems logical for him to join the Severn Country Club, if only to avoid the New York winters. And if he is Italian, it seems natural to expect his roommates to acquire a taste for pepperoni. In addition to Care packs, Frank brought a quick sense of humor and an athletic talent, which he gave to the soccer, football and softball teams. Because of his long hours of work, he managed to stay ahead of the Academic departments, but he also managed to find enough free time to pursue his greatest interest; free time. In an effort to do just that and to gather an understand- ing of foreign cultures, Frank spent a summer in Europe visiting France, Germany and Italy. JONATHAN NICHOLS HORNER Jack 7th Company When Jack entered the Academy, he was no stranger to the educational routine, having spent two years at the School of the Ozarks Junior College in Missouri. Being the easy going, friendly type, Jack was an enjoyable companion on liberty, on the athletic field, or in the normal Academy routine. Jack spent his afternoons on Battalion football and ten- nis and company basketball teams. Always willing to laugh at his one shortcoming of having a relatively poor selection of shower songs, Jack will take his friendly nature and varied abilities to Naval Aviation. JOHN GORDON BROWN HOWLAND John 7th Company During four years of commuting between Lon- don and Annapolis, John helped MATS main- tain its safety record, acted as a courier for radioactive materials from the " Proteus " and always got out of Europe on the last possible flight before leave ended. He gave the Third Battalion crew team the benefit of his ex- perience on the Plebe crew and played heavy- weight football and cross country during the winter. At the end of a two year encounter with the Russian Department, John was lured to the Superintendent ' s List by the promise of an extra weekend, and was a striper for the second consecutive year by virtue of his height, which secured his position of squad leader. ROBERT LEE JORDAN, JR. Bob 7th Company Coming from Hudson, Ohio, Bob was known as " The Zombie " among the officers of the Executive Department who happened into the 7th Company area just after reveille. Bob was a star man due to his ability to absorb knowl- edge by staring at the books on his desk, from his pad. Bob ' s favorite sports were intra- mural cross-country, fieldball, and volleyball. Bob ' s artistic ability created our fourth room- mate, " Lump-Lump, " whose adventures re- flected our brightest and darkest moments. " Lump-Lump " often found his way into the " Splinter. " Bob also kept us laughing with his dramatizations of our life at USNA. The Navy will benefit from Bob ' s imagination, intelligence and good humor. though scrambled eggs cannot be appetizing MICHAEL JEROME LIEMANDT Mike 7th Company Mike came to the Academy from Minnetonka High School in Excelsior, Minnesota and proved to be one of the outstanding members of his class. " Liemo " possessed a winning smile and lively spirit which made him a great companion at work or on liberty. He en- joyed hunting, fishing and camping trips at home, and contributed his skills and efforts to Battalion lac rosse and swimming teams and company basketball teams. Mike plans to attend Post Graduate school after gradu- ation and enter some technical field, probably guided missiles. In any endeavor, Mike will certainly be successful and a tribute to the Service. even disguised as the more exotic Western omelet. CHARLES EDWARD MANN Charlie 7th Company From the Heart of Dixie, Birmingham, Ala- bama, Charlie ventured north to the shores of the Cheasapeake Bay to get his naval career underway. After a year at Auburn University and NROTC, he was ready for anything Navy could hand out. Charlie could be found every afternoon, for the past four years, flat on his back — as a backstroker on the swimming team, that is. His quick witted sense of humor was a welcome contribution to his classmates, and fortunately for the Service, it has survived his time spent on the Severn. Navy Line is still mighty fine for Charlie and that is where he is bound upon graduation. JAMES JOSEPH McCONNELL Joe 7th Company Joe is an Army brat and lived in just about every place imaginable. He came to USNA from Portugal where he adopted the tradi- tional Portuguese love for the sea and the siesta. These two loves have proved to be the driving motion behind his life here. He is an avid ocean sailor and has his Yawl Command. He is equally as avid a " pad hound " and has developed the ability to sleep anywhere, at any time. Academics have never given Joe any trouble and he has always been able to secure good grades. Joe hopes to go to sea on a destroyer when he graduates and should have a promising career ahead of him in that field. WILLIAM LEROY MESSMER, JR.

Here he received his high school education at Norfolk Acad- emy. He played varsity sports as well as ex- celling at academics and was honored with the position of President of the student body. Bill almost slipped away to West Point, but at the last minute, he decided to continue in the Navy tradition. Academically, Bill re- mained at the top of his class throughout his four years here at the Academy. With his blend of spirit, desire and talent, the Navy is sure of receiving a fine officer and a gentleman. But there is work to be done, classes to attend . . . ROBERT WILLIAM MOLONEY, JR. Bob 7th Company Bob turned down several scholarships to come to the Academy and quickly proved more than equal to the rigors of Plebe year. As the years passed, he managed to stay on top ol the academii situation wink ' finding plenty of time for other pursuits. A dedicated sack rat, Bob took .

RICKY KING MORRIS Ricky 7th Company Ricky arrived from the Morris banana planta- tion in Columbia, South America via Castle Heights Military Academy and immediately fell into the Academy routine. Dividing his zeal between academics and activities, he managed to rid his schedule of all but a few free periods which he filled with battalion wrestling and lacrosse. In addition to holding a permanent position on the Superintendent ' s List, maintaining his star average and teach- ing Sunday School, Ricky found time to be active in NACA and OCU. Another responsi- bility was the indoctrination of the under- class as a company honor representative. On the lighter side, Ricky was better known as the vandal responsible for the destruction of priceless art treasures on Capt. McLain ' s desk. ROBERT ALLEN NEWKIRK Bob 7th Company Having obtained an outstanding academic background at Chicago ' s Tilden Tech, Bob I turned down an NROTC scholarship to North- ' western, in favor of " Canoe U. " His excellence | in academics continued at Navy as could be I seen by glancing at the Supt ' s List and his i list of elective courses. When Bob wasn ' t : studying or reading " Mad Magazine, " he could be found on the company softball or light- weight football team. His plans include a career under the sea. Bob ' s well mannered and quick witted personality, add up to an outstanding addition to the Navy ' s great corps of officers. i JOHN ALLAN NUERNBERGER Berge 7th Company Turning down a scholarship offer from Prince- ton, Berge chose the Naval Academy and his four years here have been a reflection of what the ideal midshipman should be. He is quiet, but ever ready to uphold his convictions. Ex- tremely intelligent and never above helping those who sought assistance, Berge is a man who knows what to do and when to do it. In sports, Berge when not nursing injuries, was a standout in varsity track and cross country. His capturing of the Triathalon Title, Young- ster year is a clear indication of his versa- tility in sports. Completing his four years, with an outstanding record, will be but the start of a naval career that will sparkle with exemplary achievements. CLAUDIO ANTONIO PACHECO Chico 7th Company As a foreign national, Chico naturally had more than his share of problems with Plebe year, but armed with a ready smile and an eagerness to learn, he had little difficulty making an adjustment. His happy-go-lucky attitude soon made him a welcome addition to the Company. Along academic lines, Chico had some trouble with English but was able to conquer the language and soon turned to more impo rtant pursuits like dancing. He claimed to be " king of the rumba " and sup- ported his claim by demonstrating to any doubters. Afternoons found him notching goals for the company soccer team or play- ing fieldball or volleyball. Chico plans to re- turn to Costa Rica after graduation, and he will be missed by all of his classmates. We return to our rooms to prepare laundry With unusual luck, it will all come back in a month ' Mornin ' " DOUGLAS DALE PETERSON Doug 7th Company Vfter graduating from high school, Doug spent i year at Lacrosse State College and a year working before deciding that the Navy needed lim. When not hidden behind his copy of the Kickapoo Scout, " Doug was always willing to explain that " Navy Air is mighty fair. " His ]uiet personality won him many friends, both it USNA and in cruise ports from Bermuda o New York. A fierce competitor in sports, )oug was always to be seen sparking one -.ompany team after another. A believer in the ixiom that an afternoon siesta is necessary or bodily well being, he still found time for he books and achieved good grades. He will nake a very welcome addition to the service. i NICHOLAS LEO PRESS Nick 7th Company Born in France, of Russian and French an- cestry, Nick is one of the truly international figures in the Brigade. He has seen most of Europe on his leaves and has been known to expound on his theories of world politics, at the slightest mention of a current event.

DAVID ARNO REIN Dave 7th Company Dave came to the Academy straight from high school and the life of a farm boy, in Halstad, Minnesota. His four years at Navy were well spent, academically and he finished in the top of the class.

At the Academy, Rick undertook both academics and athletics with enthusiasm and perseverance. In a phrase, he was a hard worker who always strived for the best in everything he did. Battalion tennis and the Company heavyweight football back- field were benefactors of Rick ' s talents, as was the Italian Club. Friends, and there were many, could always find a helping hand and word of encouragement from this west coaster. The Academy ' s loss will be the Navy Line ' s gain, when this dedicated officer joins same. THOMAS NELSON RICHMAN Tom 7th Company If there are any traits which characterize Tom above all others, they are his thorough com- petence and dependability.

He went out for football as a plebe bul the coaches told him that his legs were too short to be a center. He had to be content with four years as one of the finest intramural 1 tball players around. Hank ' s fine sense of humor and the ability to get along with others, made many friends for him here and will assure him a successful Future career. STEVEN CRAIG SAULNIER The Snake 7th Company Steve has the distinction of being one of the youngest and smartest boys in our class.

A fine athlete, he partn ipati (I in I ' ll pi mini i rev and lunioj Varsity Basketball. He was always looking for- ward to dragging and to having a good time at any company get-together.

JOSEPH JARLATHE STALEY, 7th Company Being a Navy junior, " J.J. " has called many places home. However, he considers himself a southerner since he came to USNA from Clarksville, Tennessee and spends his leaves in Florida. While living in England, Joe learned about rugby and soccer and most any afternoon will find him on Dewey or Far- ragut Field. Since academics are no problem for Joe, he is able to spend plenty of time on his Math major. Also, there is always time for letter writing, as the numerous pictures in his locker attest to. Joe has had his eye on the destroyer Navy for some time, and there ' s little doubt that he will make the Fleet, his future home.

His interests are in sports and good music, with the social sciences running a distant third. His pleasant personality should make Harry a valuable asset to his chosen field in the Navy upon graduation. ROBERT RICHARD TIMBERG Bob 7th Company Like many before him, Bob came to Severn ' s shore from the Great City on the Hudson. He brought along the perseverance that has won him the respect of all and the intellect that has propelled him to high academic achieve- ment. Also accompanying Bob was a football knee which has periodically hobbled him. Nevertheless, he has proved his athletic prowess by becoming a mainstay of battalion and company teams. His leadership potential carried over from the field and Bob has demonstrated this quality both on the Plebe Summer Detail and during the academic year. Without a doubt, Bob will carry his dynamic personality with him, to the Fleet and a destroyer. DAVID ALLEN WAGNER Wags 7th Company Wags came to USNA after graduating from Central High School, Phoenix, Arizona. Once at the Academy, he was willing to try any- thing and so his activities ranged from wrest- ling to debate. Wags even tried cross country, but he was more at home on the debate floor where his flair for public speaking held him in good stead. Few Mids have been so inter- ested in politics as Wags, who is as good as a national poll in predicting election results. Second Class spring, Wags turned to the Y.P. Squadron to help prepare himself for a Line career. He hopes for a destroyer homeported in San Diego. We can now shake a dust mop JEROME ALAN WELCH Jer 7th Company A jovial man-about-town, Jerry came to the Academy from Geneva, New York, via the Marine Corps and NAPS. His Marine training was put to use in two summers on the Plebe Detail. Golf and Battalion Basketball were his main athletic activities, while the winter season saw him as a veritable terror in Field- ball. He could be seen dragging nearly every weekend or he might be found defending his title of " Uncrowned King of Bancroft ' s Pool Tables. " With all this activity, Jer could still find the time to make his fun-loving nature known to all. Graduation should find this ver- satile personality returning to the Marine Corps. with the best of them! DAVID BENTON WILSHIN Dave 7th Company Over the space of his four years at the Acad- emy, Dave proved to be one of those rare people who was constantly aggressive in all his endeavors and still managed to be one of the most well liked members of his class. Without the benefit of college experience be- fore entering the Academy, he was still able to maintain a high average in his class, throughout his midshipman ' s career. Athleti- cally, he was a prominent member of the Plebe Lacrosse Team and a bulwark of the 7th Company 150 pound Football team. Dave was President of the Senior Class at Towson High School and it is evident from his com- petent demeanor why he was chosen. If past performance is any criteria, Dave will be one midshipman the Academy can take great pride in. No blues in a radius of ten yards are safe MICHAEL RAYMOND COLLINS Moke 8th Company The name " Collins " was synonymous with swimming during Moke ' s four years at the Academy. Smashing the Plebe sprint record, he methodically continued to lower the Var- sity records during his upperclass years. Despite his confessed hatred of all things academic, he was on the Superintendent ' s List his last three years and won stars his Second Class year. His theory that women were an accessory and not a necessity — " They are good for holding towels and trophies " — was a constant source of anguish for count- less gals and much amusement for his room- mates. Although from Martinez, California, he visited Cape Town, South Africa as his father worked there during Mike ' s academy days. Mike will join the Marine Corps following his graduation. FREDERICK WILLIAM DAU III Rick 8th Company The Navy got one of the best when Rick joined its ranks.

After breakfast, others find it necessary GERARD RIENDEAU EVANS Jerry 8th Company It is only natural that coming from Pensacola, Jerry should want to be an aviator. With his amazing ability to plug formulas, he went right up to the " Supt ' s List. " A fierce compe- titor, Jerry won both his " N " and the Brigade Championship in golf, his Youngster Year. Being allergic to cold weather, he could be found, during the winter months, on the squash courts or in the swimming pool.

He brought along a strong will to succeed and an insight into good study habits. A man of many talents, he has participated in the Catholic Choir, Glee Club, Masqueraders, Newman Club and French Club as well as being a participant in battalion badminton and foot- ball. His one regret concerning extracurricu- lar activities is that there is no skiing team at the Academy.

He always seemed ready to make the most of every situation, be it academic, sport or just plain horseplay, which he indulged in at regu- lar intervals. His " show me " approach to Navy life provided frequent entertainment for his friends and a ready source of debate on the virtues of his home state. Being a typical academic slash and a sportsman, Chuck was a very welcome member of the Company and will be an unquestioned asset to the Navy.

From his second year on, he was on the " Supt ' s List " to stay. Then when a moment of relaxation was in order, he would pick up a squash racket to demonstrate a keen ability at placing the black ball anywhere in the six-sided field. When something less strenuous seemed apro- pos, he would fling the cards across the blue blanket in a trick catching manner. This same finesse showed itself in his military bearing and gentlemanly qualities. These traits, along with a conscientious attitude, will be appre- ciated in any service circle. JACK ALEXANDER GRANT Jack 8th Company Coming directly from Mott Lincoln High School, it didn ' t take Jack long to adjust to USNA.

He was a member of the Varsity Pistol Team and spent many long hours at practice. If a change from the routine was deemed necessary, and he didn ' t hear the usual call- ing from the pad, he tried painting, a hobby he developed his Second Class year. Most of all, he built many strong friendships, which will last him throughout the years. PAUL DOUGLAS HAVENS Paul 8th Company Paul, the easy going " Hawkeye fan from l-o- way, " came to USNA well prepped from Roose- velt High, where he graduated at the top of his class.

Every attempt is made to keep us well JEFFREY CLARK HOGAN Jeff 8th Company Jeff came to the Academy with a winning smile, an affable personality and the air of an All-American boy about him. Wrestlers, Foot- ball players, fieldball players, and lacrosse players soon found that the smiling lad from Fairfax High was one of the hardest, yet fairest competitors they would ever encounter. Always quiet and unassuming, Jeff liked to do things for other people but rarely took credit for doing them. He found each new course held some new discoveries for him and always wanted to know, " why? " After four long years of study and summer cruises, he is ready to join his comrades in arms, with his answers tucked under his cap. JAMES HAMPDEN HOWARD, JR.

His " shot gun offense " with the latter is a wonder to behold and many times he has salvaged a sure loss from the brink of dis- aster. His quick wit and friendly sarcasm often make him the source of much laughter and he probably came as close to staying on top of the " system " as anyone here. John ' s wish for the future is to fly the " Hot Ones " and do a little racing on the side. He feels his last glory will be to go down in flames. WILLIAM HUNTER KEY, JR. Bill 8th Company Bill somehow, managed to blend a rather con- fusing mixture of Southern culture with a Navy junior background into a character that both credited his chosen career and yet yielded many long remembered good times for his friends and roommates. Bill ' s would-be social butterfly attitude took several very hard knocks when brought face to face with the Naval Academy ' s unique views on this subject, but he still managed to make at least a partial success of most of his weekends.

While maintaining an easy going ap- pearance, he nevertheless was able to do well in academics, play a standout role on the Company soccer team, and always be good for a story about his experiences. He was even known to share his Latin American charms occasionally with a local drag. At the same time, he contributed much to the mutual understanding which exists between our two countries.

KEITH IRVING WEAL Keith 8th Company Keith came to the Academy after graduating from Adams High School, Adams, New York. Keith was an honor student and lettered in track, basketball, baseball and football. His ability in football is evidenced by a scholar- ship he was offered from Brown University. " Pal " has been the star of the Third Battalion football team for the past three seasons. He has also been one of the mainstays of the Company football squad. Keith is a real but he never allows academics to interfere with his athletic pursuits. Upon graduation, he intends becoming a fighter pilot. ROBERT MARVIN WELSH Bob 8th Company Coming to USNA from Ohio, Bob matriculated at NAPS for a year before joining the Brigade. Accustomed to Navy life, he was ready to start plebe year with the enthusiasm he car- ried to all his activities during the four years. His good natured smile and unassuming man ner won him respect and friendship from all. Bob ' s interests were varied, but his favorite was the frequent spring choir trips to places more than seven miles away. An ardent talker, he could be found at the heart of the after hours debates and bull sessions. Before re- turning to Cleveland to settle down, Bob and the Navy will go far together. GARY ALAN ZIMMERMAN Zim 8th Company Zim spent a year at Portland State before deciding that the parties at USNA must be far superior and that is how he found them. He has gained eminence in his ability to have a good time under even the most dismal circumstances. This ability, a caustic sense of humor and a ready wit are Ins greatest assets. His perseverance and ability for hard work have brought him academic honors and should contribute to a very successful career. Why do they always ask the questions after they fill your mouth with stuff? NINTH COMPANY TENTH COMPANY ELEVENTH COMPANY TWELFTH COMPANY FORENOON For four hours we attend classes. With a good discussion going, or an interesting demonstration, an hour passes quickly. But some are inevitably marked by watching the clock tick the seconds away, count- ing to sixty, then watching it tick again. For some, it ' s all too obvious even to be considered; for many, the work verges on the impossible. There are those who concentrate on understanding and those who plug in every formula they know, until the answer looks just right. If it weren ' t for unit cancellation, Fluid Dynamics would be more of a mystery than it is. The professor may feel that deficit spending will solve all our fiscal problems, but he ' s sure to find a mid who will argue the point. The uniform for Navigation includes Tide Tables, H.O. 214, an Almanac, Steam Kit, Light List and parallel rulers. It ' s amazing how far away Luce Hall is when you are in Melville Hall and have to put on a reefer before the half mile dash. All too close to noon meal formation, the morning ends. In twenty minutes, we return to Bancroft, shine belt buckles, polish shoes, brush and brush some more, get a good tuck or a clean pair of whiteworks, and off to formation. With noon meal, morning ends. -HV ■- ■ ■ $ ' ' • «s? «£ % ■ U ' 4 .iu TT ■. ' O- A •An ■• fir ' M ' -a DAVID CARL AABYE Ob 9th Company Ob. coming from the small mid-western town of Chicago, came to the Academy after at- tending the University of Illinois for a year and was ready to set the world on fire, and well he did. The evidence of his achievements lie in his wearing of stars and his being con- stantly on the Superintendent ' s List. All was not study as Ob took part in cross country, fieldball and Softball. Being a genuine " ham, " he spent many hours on W3ADO, the Naval Academy Amateur Radio station. As to the future, Dave will be a valuable asset to both the Navy and to the country, regardless of the course he chooses. PHILIP ALFRED BECNEL III Phil 9th Company After graduating from Jesuit High School and leaving the city of New Orleans for USNA, his only regret was that he would miss the next four Mardi Gras seasons. He never lost his night owl habits and was surprised by many an O.D. while burning the midnight oils in some hidden cranny of Mother Bancroft. But as a result of his night ' s slashing, Phil wore stars and was a double overload man in Physics and Math. His athletic efforts were directed to soccer and squash. Supporting the German Club and living it up on summer leave were two of Phil ' s outside pastimes. Phil ' s easy going and courteous manner mark him as the true southern gentleman that he is and the Navy should gain much from his bright mind and hard work. WILLIAM KENNEDY BOONE, III Ken 9th Company Ken will long be remembered as one of the most colorful members of the Brigade. Never without a joke or story, he was successful in keeping his closest friends laughing through- out the four long years. Ken came to USNA via Gilman School in Baltimore and the Uni- versity of Maryland where he excelled in sev- eral sports. A lover of wine, women and song, he never seemed to have been affected by the Academy ' s regimented ways of life and was an outstanding member of the Brigade Hop and Ring Dance Committees. As academics went, his greatest troubles stemmed from Navigation — a fitting problem for any dedi- cated destroyerman of the future. It is 07Jf5 . . . time to go to class DONN HOWARD BYRNE Deech 9th Company A much travelled Air Force junior, Donn at- tended the University of Arkansas for two years where he became a " Sigma Nu. " This southern gentleman, unlike many of his class- mates, spent his weekends hittme, the books and his bouts with the academic department have become legendary. He participated in both varsity and intramural sports. He was also at the top in aptitude for the service and the qualities that earmark him for fine leadership m the future Afti i graduation, it dding hells for Donn and a be.iutitul southern Belle from Virginia Though Donn hasn ' t decided which In, inch of the service he will go into, the brani h thai get! this .in • i. urn om ol Hi ' besl men the Academy ever produced. Running the gauntlet . . . into the valley of death JOSEPH WILLIAM CALLAHAN, JR. Joe 9th Company As an admiral ' s son, Joe came to the " trade school " with great expectations. After the initial disappointment, he settled down to endure the life, while endeavoring to avoid the rigors of the system. A more-than-ade- quate athlete in any sport, he could usually be found in some form of competition on the court or field. As the " court jester " of the 9th Company, he was the center of many bull sessions, while ignoring Skinny as much as possible. This personable party lover ' s Sky- hawk should take him far and fast in the Navy Air. EDWARD JOSEPH CHRISTINA Chris 9th Company ' Christina ' s Kid " was the first and probably will be the only midshipman bestowed with the honor of having the laundry fold his white-works, " J. CHRIST. " Of greater import- ance was his inborn love for football which seems to follow a family line from West Hazelton, Pennsylvania. This ability helped guide him thru Columbian Prep and NAPS before arriving at the Academy. Though he " retired " after plebe year, his spirit greatly aided company ball by manifesting itself in the active organization of the sports squads. He was quiet of nature but his words of ad- vice were well listened to both on the field and off. GORDON HENRY CLOW Gordie 9th Company Living most of his life in the Washington, DC. area, Gordie came to the Academy from . Severn Prep School. In the classroom and on the playing field, " Jeff Cleff " is a tough man to beat. His prowess with a lacrosse stick or football is equalled only by his facility with a slide-rule. Gordie knows when to play and when to work and brings to both of them a quality of discernment hard to match. The years to come will find Gordie cruising the seven seas. Navy Line has claimed him but only as a vehicle to propel him to the heights he is bound to attain. f Some mornings it is a pleasurable stroll . BERNARD GERALD DONOHUE, JR. Bernie 9th Company The " Mushroom, " as he is known by his asso- ciates, came to us from Brockton, Massa- chusetts. Emulating his hometown hero, Rocky Marciano, he found his way to the Brigade boxing program and after a successful tour, he, too, retired after his first year. His other sports interests ranged from squash and soc- cer to fieldball. Not a real sweater when it came to grades, Bernie read more books than any ten others during his stay. Bernie plans to make Navy Air his gami arti i graduation, and with his f n ■ • outlook, should make the grade with apparent ease. . on other days ' - ■•■ 1,;.. ail) tie i -■, tend y.

En WALTER ALFRED ERICSON Walt 9th Company Walt ' s sharp wit and willingness to lend a helping hand was well known among his friends and classmates at the Academy. Al- though his ability to learn did not hamper his ability to sleep wherever and whenever space was available (class being an occa- sional exception), Walt was able to maintain an above average academic standing, and made the Superintendent ' s List his Second Class year. His baseball knowledge and ability was well displayed on the Company " nine " along with his other talents in com- pany and battalion sports. RED TAYLOR FAGAN, JR. Fags 9th Company Fred, a loyal son of Dixie and every bit a southern gentleman, entered USNA after a year at Mississippi Southern. He has aspired :o heights of excellence academically, physi- cally and in aptitude. A " hard charger " on :he intramural athletic fields, his hands and berseverance will be remembered by all who onfronted him on the gridiron or on the ' hard wood, " where he teamed with four others to win the Brigade Championship I ' Fags " postgraduate activities will be cen- tred around one of the finest of southern Delles from Mississippi. Barring the unfore- een, Navy Air or Submarines will find this .talwart a definite asset to their ranks. JOHN THOMAS GILMARTIN Tom 9th Company Tom broke family tradition in choosing to come to the Naval Academy, as both his father and brother are graduates of West Point. A fun loving year at Colorado Univer- sity was certainly no detriment to Tom ' s aca- demic standing as he consistently appeared on the Superintendent ' s List. His achieve- ments were by no means limited to academics however. Though Tom ' s athletic endeavors were not on the D.C. Varsity field, his perform- ance and determination, both as a player and a coach for many company and battalion sports squads, were certainly of a varsity caliber. WALTER FREDERICK HAUSCHILDT Walt 9th Company After trying the enlisted ranks of the Navy for a year, Walt came to the Naval Academy via NAPS. He wasted no time in pursuing his interest in Math and Science and with his elective courses and seminars, has excelled along these lines. In athletics, he could usu- ally be found playing intramural football and Softball. Youngster year found Walt with a new interest in classical music, but his rock ' n roll parties will long be remembered. After taps, he could often be found playing bridge in the locker room and was notorious for his 3 a.m. games. Walt ' s smile has won him many friends and his future can hold nothing but success for him. The mornings we like best Hey Major, look what we found! Beating Army isn ' t a slogan, it ' s a way of life ORVAL GLENN HERRELL Yogi 9th Company Glenn came to the Academy from Holston High School in Knoxville, Tennessee. His love for football enabled him to validate most of plebe year, while, at the same time, his aca- demic ability won him his stars, which he wore throughout his four years. Amiable and intelligent, his warm personality won him many friends among all classes. Sportswise, he was active in both company and battalion sports, football and fieldball being his spe- cialties. Never letting academics occupy all his time, on weekends he could be found dragging a certain girl from Baltimore. His natural ability insures Glenn ' s success in the Civil Engineer Corps. PHILIP ROBERTS JACOBS Jake 9th Company Jake came to Navy after a year at the Uni- versity of Orlando. Although the son of an Army officer, Jake decided the Navy was for him. An All-Conference football player and trackman in high school, he brought along a competitive spirit and fine athletic ability to our sports program. His desire to do his best made him hit the books hard and not without success. Despite the busy schedule, Jake found time to drag on weekends and partici- pate in the company bull sessions. Jake ' s primary desire and hope is for a " tin can " on the East Coast, after graduation. include a spirited send-off for the team. WILLIAM CRAWFORD LAWTON Bill 9th Company Bill comes from an Army family and calls the Washington area his home although he has lived in many spots around the globe. With a knack for academics, his name frequently appears on the Superintendent ' s List. Bill ' s best trait is his determination and once he has set his goal, to stop him is an almost im- possible task. He demonstrated his athletic ability as end for the Varsity 150 pound foot- ball team. Bill earned his Jump wings after Youngster cruise and has since acquired an interest in Skydiving. Relaxing comes easy with his guitar around and part of his time is given to the Spanish Club and Reception Committee. In aviation or nuclear power, the Navy will receive a dedicated officer. GARY PALMER JONES Gary 9th Company Gary entered the Academy after graduating from Mt. Pleasant High School in Wilmington, Delaware. Gary ' s great joy, besides the Acad- emy in general, was Ocean Sailing. He sailed with the Squadron all four years. Besides competing in the local races, he competed in one of the Bermuda Races during the summer and hopes to sail in another one this year. Being one of the best liked guys in the 9th Company, Gary always has someone visiting in his room. Since he is unqualified for Navy Line because of his eyesight, he will enter the Supply Corps after graduation. He is not sure that he will pursue the Navy as a career, but his fine character will make him a success in any field of endeavor. Of f to victories on other fields, ROBERT BRUCE MABIE Bob 9th Company l hi-, m.iss.k hir ett! Vanl ei lefl thi i ki slopes of New England for USNA after graduating from W.ilth.mi High School. He discovered a new love, that of tennis and helped to spur his team to i Brigade Championship. Bob overloaded in Military History and German and completed the required courses for a major in History. His interest in foreign Ian guages earned him a summer cruise with the Swedish Navy. His attempt to keep in shape induced him to endure the rigors of Airborne training at Fort Benning, Georgia. His other interests included playing the guitar for the NA-10, avidly supporting the German Club and searching for the " girl of his dreams. " " Mabe ' s " bright mind and many talents should stand him in good stead in the service of his country. ROBERT WILLIAM MARSH Bob 9th Company Bob graduated from Miami Senior High where he distinguished himself on one of the nation ' s finest football teams. At the Acad- emy, Bob played on the Plebe football team but after that season, found the academic load more than football would permit. The sturdy Floridian did find time for the com- pany football teams and also proved to be a fine pitcher for the Softball squad. In aca- demics, Bob found the EH G Department his fa onte, while studying Math and Science only when sack time would allow. On week- ends, he could usually be found writing to or dragging hool sweetheart. Bob was elected his Company Honor Representative and his clear head and attention to detail will stand him in good stead as a Naval Line officer. JAMES EDWARD MCDONALD, JR. Jim 9th Company After high school graduation in his hometown of Kingston, New York, Jim enlisted in the Marine Corps. After four years, he was ac- cepted for NAPS and then on to the Academy. Academics weren ' t easy for Jim, but with dili- gent work, he maintained a respectable aver- age throughout his stay on the Severn. In the afternoons, Jim would don the gloves in Mac- Donough Hall and he also held down a spot on the Battalion Wrestling team. When the caps go into the air and the Class of ' 64 grad- uates, Jim will again don the green of the Marine Corps and certainly will be one of its fine officers. READ BLAINE MECLEARY Read 9th Company Coming to USNA from Old Greenwich, Con- necticut, after attending Greenwich High School, he finished his high school education at Severn Prep School. At the Academy, Read expanded his interests along many lines, but he had a particular liking for good music, stereo equipment and Lacrosse. His long stride made him outstanding in company cross country and it also was an asset during the Spring when he played Lacrosse. Because of his abilities to learn quickly and apply this learning, Read is an extremely well rounded young man and will probably find flying natural and to his liking, I MICHAEL GUSTAV MEYER Big Mick 9th Company Big Mick ventured out of the hills and plains of Iowa, for a look at the world, in the sum- ; mer of ' 60 and ended up at USNA. Mick ad- justed easily to the pleasant, rural life by the Severn. Mick vented his energies as a . qualified member of the radiator squad and I a love of the " blue tramp. " Mick was a three I sport varsity athlete in high school and brought this experience with him to the Acad- ; emy where he applied it with typical vigor to i company and battalion sports. After gradu- I ation he plans to do a little flying, preferable ' , in the Navy ' s P3A " Orion. " Mick ' s biggest worry in life is a receding hair line. EMIL DAVID MORROW Stump 9th Company " The Stump, " though small in stature, is by no means a small man and is highly re- spected by all for his vast knowledge and amazing capacity for learning. Although ham- pered by a knee injury, his determination made him a key man in battalion football, company football and softball. Beside his many cultural and athletic interests, he cul- tivated the finer arts of the " blue tramp. " His sincerity and sense of humor have made " The Stump " well liked by his classmates and the femmes, who have him designated as " cute after four beers. " Emil ' s determination and sincere love of the Navy will make him an outstanding officer. MOSES THOMAS NAJARIAN Mose 9th Company Mose came to the Academy with a host of other football players from the West Coast after finishing two years at Antelope Valley College. Mose retired from the football game his Plebe year and concentrated on the more gentlemanly sport of pistol shooting. Estab- lishing a few Plebe records in his first year of competition, he became one of the most dependable shots on the team and wore nis " N star " with pride. Rarely did the " List " come out that his name wasn ' t on it, and overloads seemed to be his hobby. Tom ' s " prominent proboscus " became the point of many a humorous pun but his marvelous sense of humor could not be shaken. Navy Air will be proud to sport a man of the char- acter of Tom Najanan. we cheer them on their way. STUART MICHAEL NOVAK Mike 9th Company Straight out of high school in East Orange, New Jersey, Mike bid goodbye to his " Stu- dillac " and joined the rest of ' 64 on that hot July afternoon, on the long journey to the Naval Academy. He had very little difficulty with the academics. In athletics, his interests ranged from the Sailing Squadron to cross country and handball. His weekends were often spent dragging and relaxing. We feel that he will be an asset to the Navy and hope he is assigned a billet which will allow him to make use of his high degree of proficiency in the Spanish language. OLE LEIGH OLSEN Ole 9th Company " Ole Leigh " came to us from Pittsburgh and Columbian Prep on a well deserved football scholarship. Ole retired from " professional " competition after Plebe year and concen- trated on the Company 150 pound league, where he scored 14 touchdowns his first sea- son and was selected to the All-Brigade team. His enthusiastic participation in extra-cur- ricular activities included " voicing " his opin- ions in the Glee Club and the Chapel Choir weekly. Ole started out with a bang his Plebe summer as Regimental Commander and has been going strong ever since. Leadership and service are the key points of his character and these attributes are sure to guide Ole to a successful career as a Line Officer. ROBERT ANDREW ORLOSKY Bob 9th Company Bob, after a year at Waynesburg College, left his " model mining town " to come to the Academy. After a slow start in Plebe football, Bob surprised many by lettering the next three years and bringing to life a childhood dream of playing in the Army-Navy game. As for academics, Bob and the steam department have waged a small scale war but Bob always came out on top. During his stay here, Bob developed a taste for good music and thinks Frank Sinatra is the best. Bob ' s dynamic per- sonality and driving desire to do well have won him many friends and can bring him nothing but success in the future. EVERETT WARD PENTZ, JR. Skip 9th Company Skip (Boo Boo) came to Crabtown determined to trade in Hot Rods and " Motor Trend " for an F8U and some back issues of " The Leatherneck. " In academics, Skip had little trouble, always excelling in mechanical sub- jects. His afternoons were spent with the 150 ' s, Softball or cross country teams. Study hours found Boo Boo engaging in serious " cultural " exchanges with any classmate who should venture into the room. At " light ' s out " there was always time for a late letter to his O.A.O. We will always r emember Skip as one of the easiest going and best natured of our classmates. We know that the future holds great things for him. Morning is a time, too, for detail JAMES HAROLD PORTERFIELD, JR. Buck 9th Company Buck entered the Academy immediately after graduation from high school in Hinton, West Virginia. Buck escaped the wrath of the upper- class by contributing Ins athletic abilities to the Plebe baseball and gym teams. The next couple of years his interest in athletics grew as he partii ipated in intramural softball cross country and was a member of Cham- pionship Basketball teams. Never having trouble with academics, he was able to de- vote his extra time searching for a party or some good rock ' n roll musk . Although refus- ing to .idmit he came from the " hills, " his taineer " personality made him a popu- lar pi rson hi his lass Alter gradual plant t " I " i backseat pii " t as an NAO. BERTON MELVIN RANTA Hairs 9th Company Witty, jovial and easy going, he ' ll always be remembered as the guy who made you laugh when the going got tough. Active in the Masqueraders, " Hairs " is an excellent per- former on stage, and a stalwart of many a championship volleyball team. One of the few midshipmen who speaks Finnish, he maintains there is nothing like a Sauna to keep you clean and in good health. As an avid outdoorsman, he found it hard to con- centrate on academics when the leaves were turning color. Fresh water fishing is his favorite pastime and since there is a lack of facilities at USNA, he spent his free time reading about the woods and streams. With a deep devotion to the Navy, Bert looks forward to the day he will command his own ship. CHARLES LOWRY ROBERTSON Chuck 9th Company Chuck entered the Naval Academy directly from high school in Hastings, Nebraska. His main extracurricular activity at the Academy, as throughout his life, has been competitive swimming. In addition to being a versatile performer and " N " winner on the varsity level, he has taken up Battalion water polo as an out of season diversion. Not finding the aca- demics overly challenging, Chuck spent a large share of his leisure reading, sleeping and trying to snow the opposite sex, but not necessarily in that order. With a strong desire for Navy Air and a lust for the finer things in life, Chuck will fit well into Navy life. RONALD JAN SANDERS Ronnie 9th Company Arriving at the Academy by way of NAPS, and finding the service life very agreeable to him, Ronnie faced Plebe year full of spirit and breezed thru it with little difficulty. His time on the sports field was divided between Varsity and Intramural sports. These included squash, basketball and track where he be- came a member of the Varsity Cross Country team during his Youngster year. During Sec- ond Class year, he lost a courageously fought battle with the Steam Department but man- aged to survive in his second attempt at Thermo. After graduation, Ronnie is looking forward to a career in Naval Aviation. Some is clean, some dirty, some finished, some rough !• RONALD BURROUGHS SCOTT Ron 9th Company Ron, a product of South Jersey, came to USNA by way of Penn State, the Navy and NAPS, from which he graduated at the top of his class. He adapted readily to the way of life lure and breezed through Plebe Year with ,i ' . httli If nihil 1 ,i ' , .iiiyniic in the f ifth Bat- talion. Academics came quite easily, except for " Dago " which offered him nothing but two years of misery. His fondest memories will always be of summer cruises, espei i.illy Aviation Summer of 1962. As a future Navy I mi nfficer, Ron can be counted on to carry to the Fleel all those qualities that have made him so popular during his stay at USNA. I in the end it all goes back to be dirtied again. JAMES FRANCIS SHANAHAN Jim 9th Company This burly Irishman graduated with honors from Buchman High School in Michigan, but now he calls Pompano Beach, Florida, his home. He concentrated his athletic talents on the battalion and company teams and his singing abilities were a boon to the Catholic Choir. In his many battles with the books, Jim always emerged victorious. Much of Jim ' s free time was consumed on his favorite mat- tress or he might possibly be heard trying to pick out a tune on a borrowed guitar. Week- ends found Jim in the company of some of the lovelier visitors here. Beneath his happy exterior, Jim has a drive which will see him through any future, no matter which branch of Navy life he decides to call his own. HAROLD DENISON SISSON Hal 9th Company Hal made the journey to Bancroft from Westerly, Rhode Island. His easy going man- ner and slowness to anger have paved the way for the many friendships he has made here. Hal has had good grades by making the most of his time, but has also found the time to row on the crew team and to join in company intramurals. His extra activities have been BAC representative and the head of the Com- pany Policy Committee for First Class year. Hal plans on Navy line upon graduation, but whichever branch he chooses, his conscien- tious manner will surely make him a standout. WILLIAM LEROY STARKS Bill 9th Company After serving two years in the Navy, Bill came to USNA via NAPS. Plebe year ' s harrassments failed to affect Bill ' s easy going manner. He demonstrated his athletic ability on the Plebe Lacrosse and Varsity 150 lb. football teams. When not playing Varsity ball, Bill was a spirited competitor on the Battalion and Com- pany teams. Having no trouble with aca- demics and managing to improve his grades every semester, Bill would usually be found on weekends, escorting his fiancee to the Hops. His dry Indiana humor kept us laugh- ing and helped to brighten some of our darker hours. Bill plans to go into Naval Aviation and we are all sure of his success. ROBERT PAUL STEWART Bob 9th Company Coming to the Naval Academy straight from Ridgewood High, Bob wasted no time in pur- suing his athletic interests by playing on the Plebe football and baseball teams. Youngster Year found Bob with a new " interest " to whom he soon became engaged. For the next three years, Bob was addicted to the phones, making those bi-weekly calls to Baltimore and was often seen taking off on his week- ends in a big cream Continental. Academics presented a challenge that Bob quickly con- quered and he wore stars for two years. Athletically, he was the member of intramural football and Softball teams. Marriage and Navy Air await Bob upon graduation. Morning is mail time, too THOMAS BERNARD SULLIVAN Tom 9th Company Tom took to the military life here after four active years at St. George High School in i hii ago, Illinois. The Academy benefited from his fine athletic ability in company sports which he tempered with extracurricular activities. As a member of the Newman and Foreign Relations Clubs, Tom put to good use his interest in world affairs. He will tell you that the best part of life here is the summer training and traveling but he also seemed to enjoy the weekends he spent with the young ladies of Washington. Tom managed to get the most from his Academy career by taking every opportunity afforded him to broaden his knowledge of the world and this knowledge will make him one of the finest officers in the Navy. Listen, mate, you get them letters out first and worry about the newspapers last! JOSEPH RAYMOND TENANTY, JR. Ray 9th Company Homeports were many for this easy going Navy junior, including Boston, Newport, San Juan and Norfolk. Ray always argues that the Boston Red Sox are the greatest and the Nor- folk females are here to stay. Ray rode in the rumble seat over the rocky four year academic tour while sports and current events took over in the driver ' s seat. When he wasn ' t sup- porting or constructively criticizing our Var- sity teams, " Ray Berry " liked to grab touch- down passes for the 9th Company football team. Sunday brought a day of rest and par- ticipation in Newman Club events. Navy Line has always held a warm spot in this lad ' s heart, but whether on, under or over the ocean, the next few decades of Navy life look promising and exciting for Ray. I GALE EDWARD TREIBER The Mouse 9th Company " The Mouse " came to the Academy from Allentown, Pennsylvania where he graduated from high school in 1960. His nickname came from his young and innocent appearance but his personality was far from what his nick- name implied. He was active on the Ring and Crest Committee and the " Log " staff. But Gale rarely gave up the " blue tramp " for any- thing or anyone. He was an outstanding wrestler in High School and an active mem- ber of the Crew here, but he was always very well rested. His subtle humor and willingness to help brought him many friends throughout the Brigade. The Navy certainly may claim a devoted officer in Gale Treiber, for many years to come. ERIC LEONARD WESTBERG Eric 9th Company Wearing stars and being on the Superintend- ent ' s List were as familiar to Eric as were athletics and social functions. Proficiency and efficiency best describe Eric ' s attitudes to- ward any hurdles placed before him. Though quiet by nature, he was forward in character. Aside from his academic achievements, Eric left his mark on the Track Team as well as on numerous company and battalion sports squads and also the Spanish Club. Long Island, New York was his home, but the land of Sweden was his pastime. welcome words from home, RAY COWDEN WITTER Wit 9th Company Ray entered the Academy after graduation from high school in Batavia, New York. Being an honor student in high school, Ray had little trouble with academics, and always managed to keep his average in the range of the Supt ' s List. He was active in intramural sports, Battalion football and company field- ball teams. " Wit " was also active in Brigade activities, especially WRNV, where he was one of the disc jockeys on the station. He is known for some of his original ideas that were incorporated into our cheering section at the Army game. After graduation Ray will join the regular Navy line forces, and we know that he will be an asset to same. words across the miles conveying love, affection, news . . . JESUS ABARABAR ARENAS Jess 10th Company Jess came to us from the Mapua Institute of Technology, in Manila, Philippines. Overcom- ing many obvious difficulties, Jess soon found friends in a new country. A good student, he excelled in math and science. A cross coun- try regular, Jess managed his company team to a winning season, during his Second class year. In the beginning, a language problem hampered Jess but he overcame that problem and his academic record showed Jess to be a hard worker. His stay at the Academy and his many activities here insure Jess success as a leader, a friend and someone in whom his country can be proud. WILLIAM LOUIS ARMSTRONG Bill 10th Company Bill was born and raised in Southern Cali- fornia and came to the Academy after gradu- ation from high school. Studies did not come easily but he was sure he would make " Supt ' s List " at least once and always intended to achieve that goal " the next semester. " He ex- celled in sleeping, if not in academics. Most of his athletic endeavors were in intramurals although he was on the swimming team his plebe year. The only ' N " he qualified for came from the Executive Department. Plebe and Youngster years, he was a member of the 12th Company but spent the remaining two years in the 10th. Bill wants to go Navy Air, but if not, the Fleet and Long Beach as homeport, will be his choice. ROBIN BOSWORTH Bos 10th Company Robin had little trouble making the success- ful adjustment to Academy life, right from the first day of Plebe year. He always possesses the rare ability to combine a serious attitude toward his studies with a great sense of humor. No slouch as an athlete, Robin ' s pow- erful build and fierce competitive spirit en- abled him to boast of two straight undefeated seasons in intramural wrestling. Bos usu- ally divided his weekend time between his bunk, the gym and frequent trips to the movies. His pleasant wit and natural ability as a leader is sure to provide the Fleet with an outstanding officer. PAUL RAYMOND CALDWELL Paul 10th Company Paul came to us from Admiral Farragut Acad- emy in New Jersey and so was no stranger to military life. During Plebe Summer and Plebe year, Paul stroked the Plebe Crew team to a winning season. Since then, he has been active in Battalion Crew. Paul fares best aca- demically in the humanities and has been in an advanced EH G section since Plebe year, along with being an organizer in NAFAC debates. During his free time at the Academy, he could be found strumming his guitar, sketching or painting. His cartoons have often found their way to the " Log.

During his four year stay, his inter- ssts were in intramural cross country, Bat- alion track, reading and listening to his out- ■tanding collection of records. When it came o telling sea stories, no one could say he fidn ' t have any to tell or that he didn ' t know low to tell them. Jim ' s winning personality and responsible attitude will assure him of success in his chosen field of Naval Aviation and throughout his future life. JOHN DELANO DURDEN John 10th Company John came to USNA via Columbian Prep with intentions of playing football. Being a person with great drive, John fulfilled these intentions by earning his first " N " star during Youngster Year. He also proved to be very talented in various other activities. He swam on the Plebe swimming team and excelled in Company sports. John encountered little diffi- culties with the academic departments and proved to be an outstanding leader in the midshipman chain of command. Second Class summer served to further John ' s already great interest in Naval Aviation. With his fine per- sonality John will go to the top as a Navy flier. no time for more than a hurried look . . . DONOVAN LEE EWOLDT Ewee 10th Company An Army brat, Ewee was born in Minnesota but never settled long enough in one place to be able to call it ' home. " He did spend con- siderable time in the Pensacola Barracks dur- ing Second Class Summer, though. He ex- celled in Company and Battalion sports, being a mainstay on the Company Basketball, foot- ball and cross country teams and a stalwart performer on the Battalion tennis team. He is a firm believer in hard work, physical condi- tioning and parties and will long be fondly remembered for his wit, personality and love of competition. His tremendous drive and de- sire to succeed, will carry him to a useful and successful Naval career. JOHN ROBERT FITZGERALD, JR. FitZ 10th Company John ' s hometown is Harlingen, Texas. He at- tended Texas Military Institute for four years, prior to entering the Academy, where he played three years of football, took part in four years of swimming and was the President of the Class of ' 60.

Fitz ' s interests are pri- marily young ladies, water sports, autos, and an eight foot hydroplane that he built in the Academy shops during his Second Class year. On the East Coast, John prefers the night- clubs of D. C. and New York, but in Texas, he likes to cross the border into Mexico and enjoy their local color. WILLIAM JAMES GLEESON Bill 10th Company Bill came to Navy straight from Camp Hill, where he excelled in athletics, academics and social activities. He knew what he wanted and his patient efforts resulted in " Supt ' s List, " an " N " and the respect and admiration of his classmates. " If it is worth doing at all, it is worth doing well " was his non-expressed but demonstrated motto. Not all work and no play, Bill was always on hand for deathball, football, the extra drag or a movie. Bill was always there to help whether it be academic or a weekend watch. As with most of us, Bill ' s fondest memories of Academy life will center around his Cruise. After graduation, Bill looks to Navy Air where his calm and realistic ap- proach to life will carry him far. RICHARD EDWIN GOOLSBY Rick 10th Company Rick ' s sense of humor, friendly smile and his attitude of " grin and bear it, " were big enough to match his home state of Texas. After a year at Texas Tech, Rick followed his dreams of flying to USNA and fought every- body from the Academic Board to the Medi- cal Department, to materialize those dreams. His athletic ability made him " outstanding " on the football field, in the crew shells or the Natatorium. A man of many talents, strong faith and a deep desire to always do better, will carry him far in his career in Naval Aviation. This unforgettable Texan will hold the respect of his friends in any situation. for to lectures we must go PAUL BRADBURY GRAVES Paul 10th Company Paul came to the Academy through the Marine Corps and NAPS, after attending Monterey Penninsula Junior College and Colo- rado State University. From an Army family, there are many places that he could call home, but he prefers the sandy beaches of California. During his years on the Severn, he wiled away the athletic hours by playing a rough and tumble game of fieldball and by qualifying as Commander of a Yawl in the Sailing Squadron. Except for a brush with " steam " during Second Class year, Paul did fairly well in academics. Second Class sum- mer proved, without a doubt, his love of flying, and the Corps upon graduation, will receive a fine pilot and future Commandant in this able Marine. 190 where even the duty professor Hey, Commander, get the name of that mid in the last row! WILLIAM RONALD HARRIS Bill 10th Company If you ever wanted a fight, all you had to do was make a disparaging remark to Bill about Ohio, especially Dayton, and you would really be in for it. This ardent Buckeye came directly from high school and the Naval Re- serve. Quickly accustoming himself to Aca- demic routine, he has consistently worn stars or been on the Superintendent ' s List. Ath- letically, Bill has contributed much to com- pany and battalion sports. He has also tried his hand at debating and music. Bill ' s week- ends were often spent dragging and was never known to turn down a chance for a blind date. His hard work and desire will make him a fine officer when he joins the Fleet. ROBERT PAUL HERRIOTT Bob 10th Company Bob hails from San Diego where he acquired an athletic ability which he used often to further the lOth ' s success along that line. Not really a " man of the books, " Bob still man- aged to keep his head above water while re- maining his usual easy going self. A real " discussion man, " Bob could oft times be found in a classmate ' s room talking over the pros and cons of the Navy life, with Bob almost invariably backing the Navy life to the hilt. Graduation will find him going after the coveted " Wings of Gold " and knowing his determination, he is a sure bet to get them and wear them, proudly. JAMES CLINTON KRAFT Jim 10th Company Jim came to the Academy from the hills o West Virginia to take up his chosen profes sion. With an eye to developing his profes sional capabilities, he soon became a prO ' ficient member of the Y.P. Squadron. Land locked during the winter months, Jim kepi in shape on the Company cross country team. Academics gave him a little trouble during his first year, but hard work led to continued improvement and he was soon well clear of the danger area. A voluntary submarine cruise during his Second Class summer reaffirmed his belief that the Silent Service is his best bet. The underwater Navy should find him a real asset, with his easy going nature and tenacious spirit. nw can succumb to the intricacies of science ALEXANDER JOSEPH KREKICH Al 10th Company Al came to Navy after a year at Columbian Prep in Washington. Prior to that, he attended Passaic Senior High School in New Jersey. He brought with him a record of outstanding achievement in athletics and academics and kept his record up to date by maintaining a good class standing as well as holding down a position as one of the guards on the Varsity Eleven. During the season, he lives football and when it is over, he can be found in the weight room furthering his development in football. A three year letterman, Al ' s biggest thrills have come in beating Army on the gridiron. He also enjoyed his summer cruises tends giving Navy line a try after grad- uation. Ultimately, he has set his goal on a masters degree in Political Science. MICE t- If . ■ ' ■ " :- :■. ■ drini I iti pei I li t II ' - though we try to absorb them. UCE GORDON KRUM 10th Company jike ' s first days here were rough ones as he on discovered that the mid store was ill- epared to fit his 6 ' 5 " frame. Although a ritable computer of sports knowledge, he ten found his academic storehouse slightly :king. A recurring knee ailment robbed him his " N " star in basketball, although he still ntributed greatly to intramurals. Although perior to most, athletically, he had a few Jugh sessions with the chinning bar. His termined attitude hurdled these obstacles d all others that he encountered at USNA. th his good sense of humor and congenial rsonality, Spike ' s future should hold much ' him. CHARLES CHANDLER KRULAK Chuck 10th Company Coming to USNA from Phillips Exeter Acad- emy, Chuck wasted little time in getting to know everyone. Active in Lacrosse and Wrest- ling, coupled with an occasional bout with the Steam Department, he seldom came out second best. Figuring his summers right, he managed to put a lot of time into the plebe indoctrination system, and still kept his hand in with various local girls. The Marine Corps branded this lad early and any other service is out of the question. Never one to be out done, Chuck ' s fierce competitive spirit in work and play will place him in good stead as he ventures forth from " the old school. " DALE JEROME LUX Dale 10th Company Dale, a loyal Californian, came to the Acad- emy after a year at St. Mary ' s College and three years in the Navy. Although his favorite sport is elbow bending, he played football and rugby in College and his best sports here have been fieldball and crew. He is interested in Sky Diving and got his jump wings during Second Class summer at Fort Benning. His mechanical abilities are evidenced by his home built dragster and various other proj- ects here in metal and wood shops. Dale is best known as the first man asleep in any class and for his generosity, geniality and willingness to help any of his friends in need. Dale is looking forward to his career in the Navy and it is certain the Navy will benefit by his presence. GARY RUSSELL MAITLAND Gary 10th Company Graduating from Gettysburg High, Gary en- tered the Navy and attended Fire Control Technician ' s School before being sent to NAPS and then to USNA. He waged one of the most spectacular battles with the Aca- demic Department that the Naval Academy has ever witnessed. Though Navy Line will probably be Gary ' s career, Fleet Air Oper- ations at Jacksonville shall be a reminder of his most fond and lasting memory. Being ex- ceedingly familiar with the art of sleeping, he seemed to draw energy from his bed to continue those activities considered so vital to maintaining a distinctively pleasant " laissez faire " attitude. His wit and smile will be a welcome addition to whatever ship or station Gary serves. We have weapons lab and physics lab, Really, it ' s all magic 194 PETER ANTHONY MORGAN Pete 10th Company Pete is perhaps most well known for his ac- complishments on the Wrestling Squad. His ability to keep at this endeavor while beset by injuries was admired by one and all. Pete was one of the luckiest as far as the aca- demics went. " I guess we will have a quiz the second lesson this week, " and he was always right. His trademarks were that easy going shuffle and a smile that could fool anyone, except his mother. Youngster Cruise gave Pete that shot of blue and gold which branded him a destroyerman. His lean, ath- letic build led to some of his infamous acts of borrowing— " Anyone got an extra pair of Bermudas? " No matter which way he turns after graduation, we know Pete will succeed. THOMAS OSBORNE MURRAY Tom 10th Company Tom came to the Academy from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In his four years, Tom ' s biggest interest seemed to be sports. He wrestled for three seasons on the Varsity Team and spent much of his time during the spring season, out sailing on the Bay. During one of his three seasons on the Sailing Squadron, Tom sailed on the " Freedom " in the Bermuda Race. This stimulated his desire to travel and so has spent each of his summer leaves tour- ing the world. Another one of his fancies was women. Scarcely a weekend went by that Tom didn ' t have a drag or two. At this time, Tom is looking forward to the day when he will pin on the golden wings of Navy Air. JOHN ALFRED NORDIN Jack 10th Company Jack, the eldest of nine children, came to us straight from St. Mary ' s High School in Chey- enne, Wyoming. However, coming directly from high school has not been an academical hinderance, as his name has often been on the Superintendent ' s List. The one place where Jack has become a fixture is in his pad, but he does manage to tear himself away from his beauty sleep enough to par- ticipate in company intramurals and has also become a familiar face around McDonough Hall. Though Jack is still not certain what he plans to do upon graduation, he has a strong leaning to a career as a Marine Corps officer. language and computer labs i MICHAEL FREDERICK OLIVER Mike 10th Company Mike came to the Academy from Boulder City, Nevada where he was the Salutatorian of his high school class. Academics have never been a problem to Mike and he has been a regular on the Superintendent ' s List. Mike ' s interests lay in engineering and he has completed a major in that field. A Varsity 150- football manager, Mike ' s success can be seen by the lightweight squads records — all win- ning seasons. The paratroop school at Fort Benning was home to Mike during his Sec- ond Class summer and he wears his jump wings proudly. A regular scorer on the Com- pany cross country team, Mike also enjoys skiing. His warm personality can be nothing but an asset in Mike ' s future career. w • We study the humanities and science WILLIAM WALTER FRANKLIN PEAKE Bill 10th Company Bill came to USNA via the Submarine Fleet and NAPS. He is a native of San Jose but has always had a desire to travel and has been to Europe several times. For the 10th, Bill played both squash and cross country but most of the time he could be found with his main interest, music. He often spent his " study " time working on a piece of hi-fi gear or re- cording some new music with which to vi- brate the Seventh wing. During the summer, Bill went to Jump School with a group of airborne Mids, but barring a sudden change in interests, he will probably return to the sub-surface sailors, after graduation. DENNIS EDWARD RAY Denny 10th Company When Denny came to the Academy, it amounted to moving about ten miles south on the Chesapeake Bay, as his home was in Riviera Beach, Maryland. Although not the type to make the headlines, Denny can be remembered for his defensive abilities on the Varsity Soccer team as well as his directing of the Company Basketball team on offense and defense. His biggest ambition for his first three years was to have the legal right to ride in an automobile. At present, his thoughts of the future are centered about a certain young lady from Baltimore and a possible future career in the Supply Corps. STEPHEN DUDLEY RICHARDS Steve 10th Company In the summer of 1960, Steve bid the plains of Kansas a fond farewell and headed for USNA. With his tremendous personality and clown- ing ability, he was always available to put on a little show to keep everyone ' s spirits up. After standing first in his high school class, he figured USNA would be no sweat, but the Math department saw it differently and Steve had a few rough days. Squash was Steve ' s favorite athletic endeavor although he seemed to be equally at home on the volleyball court or a Softball diamond. Steve ' s desire to suc- ceed should make his career as a Navy flyer, a long and distinguished one. I HUGH JOSIAS RISSEEUW Hugh 10th Company Hugh is best known for his likeable person- ality and receding hairline, though to this day he swears that he was born this way. Not endeavoring to break any academic records, he could usually be found burning the mid- night oil in the company office or wardroom. His lean athletic build stood him in good stead on the golf links, the tennis courts and in a variety of company sports. Hugh ' s favor- ite weekend pastime was dragging and his dates could always look forward to an en- joyable weekend watching the Navy teams in action or sailing the Severn, when the weather permitted. His heart is set on Navy Air, and it is certain that Hugh will one day be a great Navy pilot. THEODORE KANJI SADAMOTO Ted 10th Company Ted, a graduate of Roosevelt High School in Los Angeles, came to the Academy after a year at Los Angeles City College. An all-league tackle for his high school football team, he has followed up his athletic prowess by being a strong competitor in both Squash and Soc- cer. He will always be remembered as one of the best goalies in intramural soccer. Ted ' s greatest enjoyments have been the football trips in the Fall, where he has been an avid fan and an active participant in the victory celebrations afterwards. One of his main in- terests has been dancing and he is often re- ferred to as the the " swinger. " In Ted, the Navy Line will receive an outstanding officer, after graduation. BALDWIN STEPHEN SCHMIDT Steve 10th Company Steve came to the Academy from Country Day High School in Cincinnati, bringing with him a sense of humor that made him one of the best liked men in the company. Never one to let school work interfere with his education, Steve could always be counted on to talk over anything or to make a fourth at the bridge table. Despite this, he never had any trouble making grades. Steve carried his athletic tal- ents to company soccer and fieldball. His weekends were spent either dragging or sleep- ing. A more likeable and friendly guy was hard to find and when the Fleet gets him, they can do no better. naming them with affection " bull " and " skinny. " WILLIAM FRANCIS SHAUGHNESSY III Bill 10th Company A New York Irishman, Bill, better known to us as the " Shagger, " came to the Academy from Ardsley, New York. An avid sportsman, he was willing to try almost anything, at least once. Afternoons could usually find him in the fencing loft with the Varsity and Battalion Squads or going a couple of rounds for the Battalion Boxing squads. Though he didn ' t take the Academic departmeents by storm, Bill never had any trouble with his studies. He was at his best with Spanish and was a member of the Spanish Club. The future will find Bill in the Navy Blue as he becomes a fine part of Uncle Sam ' s modern Navy. JAMES LUTHER SPENCER III Jim 10th Company A Navy junior, Jim calls Mississippi his home. An ardent rebel, he is quick to defend the South against attack, at any time. He came to the Academy from Quantico Post High where he lettered in basketball and tennis. A standout on the battalion tennis team, Jim was always willing to participate in any sport, though the racquet sports seemed to be his forte. A member of the Reef Points staff, Jim was a willing worker on any project assigned to him. Jim ' s sole ambition has been to fly the Navy ' s multi-engine planes so that Pensa- cola and Navy Air are his post graduation plans. BARTON DALE STRONG Bart 10th Company Hailing from one of America ' s hunting para- dises, Twin Falls, Bart quite naturally brought to the Academy, an inbred love for hunting and rifles. He turned down numerous schol- arships by going to USNA. His competitive spirit was a main factor in the 10th Com- pany ' s drive for Brigade honors in both foot- ball and basketball. In his spare time, he played a little tennis and won a case of beer for the effort. Upon his graduation, the Navy will receive a self confident and positive man to help accomplish the Navy ' s difficult mis- sion of the future. BRUCE ARTHUR THOMAN Bat 10th Company " Bat " came to the Academy directly from a high school in the Everglades of Florida. Al- though surrounded by water at home, he was constantly matching wits with the P.T. De- partment in swimming. His athletic ability should not be measured by this, because " Bat " could match anyone on the 150 lb. foot- ball team. Varsity track also found him as its manager. His pleasing personality and bright smile came through when those around him needed them most. Navy Air will certainly benefit by having such a member in its ranks. We are absorbed, fascinated, bored, challenged CHARLES JOSEPH TOMASHEK Chuck 10th Company Chuck came to Annapolis immediately after graduation from St. Norbert ' s High School in DePere, Wisconsin. His excellent record in high school carried over to the Academy. He seems to have a permanent spot on the Super- intendent ' s List and he has led the Company in academics since plebe year. His talents are not limited to the classroom, since he added to the strength of our lightweight football team and turned to the sea and the YP Squad- the Spring. His warm manner and his abilities will make him welcome wherever he may go and will insure his success in the GEORGE BENJAMIN VAUPEL Ben 10th Company i Ben, from Salina, Kansas, came to the Naval Academy after studying for one year at Mc- pherson College in Kansas. The change from civilian to military life was attained, by Ben, with considerable ease. He always found time for his favorite pastimes, sleeping and writ- ing letters. He was an active participant in Company intramurals and contributed much to the success of the fieldball and volleyball teams. Not a " star " man, Ben never had any difficulty with the academics. His greatest opponent, at the Academy, was swimming but somehow he managed to emerge the win- ner. His serious manner will be of great help to Ben as he pursues a career in Navy Line. WILLIAM HARRY WRIGHT IV Bill 10th Company Bill left the pleasures of Las Vegas to join our class at USNA and displayed his ability to excel from the moment he arrived. He was active in sports, exhibiting the natural com- petitiveness he learned well at Rancho High School. Bill never limited himself in his en- deavors and has constantly proven himself capable of any task placed before him. Bill has become one of the best liked members of the " big 10th. " Throughout his years, Bill has maintained his interest in submarines and the Academy will lose an excellent Mid- shipman at graduation, but Nuclear Power School will gain a fine Ensign. overwhelmed, threatened, puzzled, by our subjects in turn. Where M is mutual conductance as defined by the second class committee TERRAN RAY BOYD Terry 11th Company The pride of Pitcairn, Terry endured two years of Westminister before taking the plunge into life at USNA. An all-round guy, Terry can be spotted in ranks by his height, at the table by his appetite, in sports by his aggressive- ness and in bull sessions by his determina- tion. Terry has exhibited his athletic prowess as a company volleyball player and earned his " N " on the Varsity Track team as an outstand- ing high jumper. His hobby is electronics, though his electronic ' s grade fails to indicate his ability. With his personality and energy, he will be an asset both to the Navy and his country. PHILIP ALBERT BOYER III Phil 11th Company Phil came to the Academy by way of North Central High School in Indianapolis where he was a top honor student. At the Academy, he has proved himself to be an even better student, by wearing stars and consistently be- ing on the " Supt ' s List. " P hil has contributed many of his other talents to the Brigade by being in the D B, Musical Club Shows and participating in Battalion sports. As if this is not enough, Phil is always ready to help a classmate in academics or fill in as a fourth for Bridge. After graduation, Phil will further his education and our technical serv- ice of tomorrow will find him at the top of the list. JAMES CUMMINGS CAROLAN Jim 11th Company " If you ' re big and brawny and your brain is small, come to Navy and play football. " Jim, a local product from Washington, D. C, brought with him a sense of dedication and determination that won him the respect of his classmates and friends. His versatility made him a much sought after man, whether it was a math problem that had to be solved or a conduct report requiring the fluent state- ment of a " bull slash. " Active in the Newman, German and Public Relations Clubs, Jim still managed to make the " Supt ' s List " and still have time to drag selected members of his torrid female fan club. Jim ' s future is still undecided but whether it is the Navy or the Marines, success is assured. It is reassuring, at least ROBERT THEOBALD CASSADY, Jr. Bob 11th Company After graduating from high school, Bob went into the Fleet with the idea of coming to USNA. His diversity of interests were shown in his many activities, including company sports, Y.P. Squadron and academics. Bob, in spite of academic pressures, always man- aged to get plenty of sleep and was known, affectionately to all, as the " Hibernating Bear. " With a keen interest in water sports and warm climates, he plans to be an avia- tor and make his home in the South. Bob has the resourcefulness, drive and desire and will have a successful and rewarding career in the future. to know that we are all together in our despair. RICHARD LEE EARNEST Ernie 11th Company Even though Ernie comes from a small town in Pennsylvania, he is by no means an incon- spicuous person here at the Academy. In two and a half years, he has established him- self academically proficient as well as an ex- cellent athlete in both football and baseball. He is well liked and respected by all who know him, mainly because he accepts his responsibilities and duties with the deter- mination to do his best. Ernie ' s outlook on life is a mature one and his enjoyment of it is exemplified by his unlimited source of energy and bubbling personality. When he engages in flight training upon graduation, with t hese qualities, he will surely be a success. CYRIL GREGORY EVANGUELIDI Cyril 11th Company Cyril was born in beautiful Miami Beach, Florida on April 16, 1942. He spent his first fun and sun filled years there on the beach. Then his family moved to the " Land of the Stars, " California, where he spent the next ten years. After finishing his schooling, he heard the call of the sea and joined the Brig- ade of Midshipmen here at Annapolis. During his years here at USNA, with the usual ups and downs, he has made his life enjoyable as well as for those around him. His favor- ite pastimes are sports and the out of doors and he has shown great prowess in both academics and in sports. EDWARD MARSH FOX Ed 11th Company Ed calls California home, but being a service junior, he has lived in many places in the United States. At the Academy, Ed ' s fine qualities served to make him one of the true characters of the 11th Company. Gifted with a wonderful sense of humor to com- pliment the standards he set for himself, Ed made the four years enjoyable for everyone associated with hirn. Ed ' s athletic endeavors covered such wide fields as Varsity soccer and Brigade boxing. He attacked academics with the same determination he demon- strated in the ring and found little trouble in that department. A dedicated Marine, Ed plans to carry on the family tradition after graduation. CARL OWEN GALLMEYER Carl 11th Company Out of western Pennsylvania, Carl brought his good natured character to the Naval Academy after spending a year at NAPS in Bainbridge. Although he seemed to have more respect for his beloved " pad " than for his books, he always managed to pull through each term without much difficulty. A firm believer in physical fitness, Carl proved himself a well developed runner and a superbly co- ordinated athlete. Much of Carl ' s free time was spent at the pool tables in Smoke Hall, where he rarely tasted defeat. With his out- standing qualities of fairness, reliability and friendliness, Carl will assume his place in the Fleet, confident and capable of the job before him. ourses range from international politics to thermodyn amies You don ' t have to understand it if you can plug it i WILLIAM HENRY GRAHAM III Hank 11th Company No one had heard of Starke, Florida until Hank made it known that it was the Straw- oerry capitol of the world. Never one to rest }n past laurels, which included a class pres- dency, varsity football and class Valedic- orian, he came to this Academy with a fierce determination to succeed. His qualities were ecognized on the football field where he jlayed 150 lb. football and in Bancroft Hall vhere his classmates saw him demonstrate lis worth during the ordeal of Plebe Year. )n cruises, he made many lasting friend- hips, which naturally included various as- orted blondes and brunettes. Academically uperior and morally strong, his natural eadership will take him into Naval Aviation nd a successful future. FRANCIS DAVID GRAY Dave 11th Company Dave graduated from high school in his hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1960, and was appointed to the Naval Academy the same year. He was an active participant in nearly every intramural sport, and always set a good example for his team mates. Besides keeping above a 3.0 average in aca- demics, Dave devoted a great deal of time to teaching Sunday School. In everything he did, Dave was always an excellent example of what a midshipman should be. After gradu- ation, Dave plans to go Navy Line, prefer- ably on a destroyer on the West Coast. from navigation to history WILLIAM WALKER HYLAND, Jr. Willie 11th Company After attending Severn and Columbian Prep, Willie was destined to find his way to the Academy, being the descendant of a long line of Academy graduates, going back to his grandfather. Being a Navy junior, he got to see the world before coming to USNA. Although he was born in Hawaii, and lived in many places, his present home is in Wash- ington, D.C. Athletically, he participated in company and battalion sports. Willie, by his easy going and suave manner, has secured a high position of esteem with his class- mates. He left his mark at the Academy and will be an outstanding officer when he goes into Navy Air. FRANK HILTY HIESTAND Spanky 11th Company Frank came to the Academy comparatively late in life. After graduating from Old Fort High School, he went on to the College of Wooster for three years. Needless to say, Frank was quite well prepared for Navy ' s academics. In fact, he was an out and out " slash " when it came to Math. Most of Frank ' s spare time was spent on the soccer field, practicing with the Chapel Choir, writ- ing to his " one and only, " or relighting one of his many pipes. Frank set his sights on Nuclear Power School and with his ability is sure of landing on target. But regardless of the service he enters, his easy going per- sonality will assure him of smooth sailing. We struggle with Russian, Spanish, French and Italian JAMES FREDERICK JOHNSON Jay-Jay 11th Company An outstanding athlete and scholar in high school, Jay attended Bullis Prep before com- ing to USNA. He established the reputation for having a quick and intelligent mind right from the start and so had little trouble with academics. Jay is majoring in engineering and doing quite well. As a plebe, he gave up the gridiron to pursue the life of a Navy oarsman. Jay is quite a jokester, and is well known for his carefree attitude. He en- joys listening to folk music and will often while away the hours strumming his guitar. He wants to spend his service career in a Navy jet, and if his ravenous appetite doesn ' t leave him penniless, he will do well in this life.

Well known for his quick wit, Yogi made many friends amongst the Brigade. He was best known for wearing .-:78 on the gridiron for Navy. On graduation, he will turn his talents upward and become a member of the Navy ' s flying team. During his four years here, Yogi attained the qualities of a fine midshipman and will surely be welcome to the Navy as an officer. ANTHONY MICHAEL LEMKE Tony 11th Company Before coming to USNA, Tony spent two years at Wisconsin State College. This extra edu- cation seemed to be of help Plebe year, but after that Tony and the Academic Depart- ments played all kinds of games with grades. It seems that girls held much more of an in- terest for him than did his books and when weekends rolled round, he could always be seen with a young lovely in his company. Sports was another love of his and he was the member of several Brigade championship teams. Tony ' s plans for the future seem to bend toward Navy Line and destroyers, but wherever he goes, we know, there will be a good time for those around him. WILLIAM HARDIN LIFSEY, Jr. Bill 11th Company ! fter graduating from Flushing High, Bill sacked his bags and went west to Colorado snd Western State College.

Upon graduation, Bill ' s ambition is to get lis Navy Wings of Gold. KENNETH LEIGHTON LONGEWAY, Jr. Ken 11th Company Ken, a Navy junior who spent his life travel- ing from one base to another, was no stranger to the Navy way of life. His first encounter with academics, was arduous. But like any- other task confronting him, he settled down and would not let the books defeat him. This same determination in the field of athletics stood Ken in good stead as he won his first letter in Rifle during his first year of Varsity competition.

His seriousness and dedication to any task are reflections of his excellent sense of duty, honor and responsibility. Dave ' s high class standing, both in aptitude and academics, is the main fruits of his ef- forts. A man of excellent ability and deserv- ing of complete trust, Dave will be a great asset to the submarine service. THOMAS EDWARD MCFEELY Tom 11th Company Tom has the distinction of being one of the youngest members of the Class of ' 64. He came to the Academy from Hoboken, New Jer- sey just after his seventeenth birthday. Not letting his age become a factor against him, he quickly proved himself academically by becoming a member of the Superintendent ' s List, where he has remained during most of his stay here. Good grades were not Tom ' s only virtue, for he became the Managing Editor of the " Lucky Bag " , while at the same time, a constant participant in the intramural sports program. Navy Air has Tom ' s vote for a future and we know he will give it his very best.

He has im- pressed many Navy fans with his skill in the latter.

We learn the proud history of the sailor JOHN JACOB MUMAW Jack 11th Company Jack came into our fair society directly from West Hazleton, Pennsylvania. From the start, his consistent good nature made him one of the best liked men in the class, and he was always able to raise the spirits of those around him. Jack must have been the Brigade Champion letter writer and receiver. An out- put of five letters in an afternoon was about par for him. In addition to an extraordinary amount of ability and stamina, Jack displayed a cool yet fierce competitive spirit, which are fine qualities to find in one who will be defending our skies. Navy Air is receiving a dedicated man who is sure to succeed, ivh it • ' Hi.

In the after- noons, he could be found over at the Gym on the rings or in his room strumming a tune on his banjo or guitar. Second Class summer agreed with Sandy, for the Fleet is soon to have an addition in the ranks of Navy Air. AUBREY ALLEN NICHOLS Al 11th Company After a year at the University of Idaho and another at Texas Western, Al settled down to life at USNA. He is noted for the friendly, carefree attitude that he brought along from the Texas plains. Al ' s main efforts have been toward trying to use his arms again after two shoulder operations. The academic de- partment has benefited greatly from the many hours Al has devoted to his studies from the reclining position. His academic and aptitude marks have clearly shown his ded- ication to the Naval Academy way of life. His attitude and love of the se a will make Al a welcome addition to the Fleet. DONALD WADE NISSLEY Don 11th Company Born and raised in Lancaster County, Penn- sylvania, Don came to USNA after a year of college and three years of Navy enlisted serv- ice, where he was a crack electronics tech- nician.

We handle a sextant, study a chart JAMES DAVID NORVELL Jim 11th Company After three years in the Army, Jim changed uniforms and embarked on his new career, at USNA. An ardent oarsman, not only was he a member of the 1962 National Championship Crew Team, but also took time off from Plebe detail to represent the U.S. in international competition in Greece. He was a member of the Officer ' s Christian Union and Naval Academy Christian Association and conduct- ed regular Bible study and discussions during the evenings. Jim demonstrated that high morals are an effective part of naval leader- ship. His maturity, unselfishness and self-dis- cipline insure the Navy of a very fine Line officer. 1 plot a position and learn how to command VINCENT EDWARD O ' NEILL Vince 11th Company Vince was a well travelled salt by the time he arrived at the Academy, having spent three years in the Marine Corps including a year in the Far East. His big Irish grin and affability made him a natural " big brother " to his class- mates. He easily handled all the rigors of Plebe year and academics and became known for his easy going way of life-first to bed and first on liberty. Although he never missed a good weekend, he vowed never to let women interfere with his two real loves, chow and sleep. Vince will be a tremendous asset to whichever part of the Marine Corps he re- joins, after graduation. HENRY GRADY PERKINS, Jr. Grady 11th Company A native of Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, Grady came to the Academy after two years at Mississippi State. His background at State made academics the least of his worries, though he did have several bouts with the Dago Dept. His interest lies in the field of sports and when not particpating in Company sports, he could usually be found discussing the supremacy of the Southeastern Football Conference. Following close behind his love for athletics was a tender fondness for the ' pad " . Wings of Gold have caught his eye and he looks forward to a career in Navy Air and ie should be a valuable addition to any Naval squadron. FRANK NEVIUS POLHEMUS Frank 11th Company Being the son of a large corporation man, Frank covered a large amount of this country following his father ' s nomadic occupation. Although his family now lives in New Jersey, he will always consider himself a Texan. Frank was popular for his cheerful disposi- tion and his helpfulness to his classmates in academic trouble. Frank managed the Basket- ball team and though it took a great deal of his time, he still managed to make the Su- perintendent ' s List. Frank ' s first love is des- troyers and he will surely make an outstand- ing career Naval officer.

At Bellows Falls High, Joe starred in football, basketball and track as well as being a performer on stage. He carried all of these talents to the Severn where he has been a valuable addition to his Company ' s intra- mural sports squads. Joe will best be remem- bered by his classmates for his wit which has made him one of the most respected men of his class. During his spare time, Joe can usu- ally be found strumming a guitar, writing letters or looking at pictures of sports cars. No matter what branch of service Joe enters, he is sure to be a big success. JOHN JOSEPH SAI Johnny 11th Company During his four years at USNA, Johnny man- aged to continue his excellent athletic record that started in high school. I am sure that no one needs be reminded of the thrill of watch- ing ij48 scramble down the sidelines during the football season. When not playing foot- ball, Johnny can be found participating in his second love, Track. Johnny has never lacked for friends, of either sex, due to his friendly smile and winning personality. Although he did not spend much time in the Club Eleven area, he was known by everyone and his pre- sence was always enjoyed. The service that John selects, will be getting an excellent ath- lete and a fine officer. CHARLES DANIEL SHIELDS, Jr. Charlie 11th Company Charles is a man who combines intelligence with athietic ability. A member of both the Navy football and basketball squads, he has the ability to analyze his opponents with shrewdness and insight that is usually char- acteristic of great leaders. Wit and the ability to draw laughs from almost any company, are qualities which keep him elevated in the es- teem of his classmates. He maintains a cool head and calm, reserved attitude during sit- uations of stress and has exceptional quali- ties for leadership. Charlie ' s future can bring nothing but success for him. amidst the ever-present crowd of tourists CHARLES LEX SHOEMAKER Chuck 11th Company Chuck was the quiet type around the Hall but let his presence be known on the sports field and in the classroom. He excelled in both company Softball and lightweight football but was even better in cross country. In the field of academics, he handled the Math and Sci- ence courses very well but set the Spanish language back several years. Nuclear Power or Wings of Gold are in his eyes and whichever field he should choose, Chuck is bound to be a successful career officer for the Navy. r who seem to accompany us everywhere DENNIS RICHARD SPRADLIN Denny 11th Company Denny came to USNA as an unsuspecting civilian but quickly adjusted to the Navy and its peculiar way of doing things. His high standing in high school enabled him to come through the struggle with academics with- out any major problems. Although an avid sports fan, Denny sometimes yielded to the eternal " temptation " and could occasionally be found recuperating from the ill effects of late hours spent over the books. His easy go- ing personality and desire to excel have made him well liked and successful, during his so- journ at the Academy. Naval Aviation will benefit from his decision to become an avia- tor. GERARD THOMAS WHITTLE Jerry, the Twitts 11th Company Jerry arrived at USNA from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where his year spent in a ship- yard explains his fantastic store of facts hips. His vivid imagination coupled bouncy personality has made him the •nany a party and " bull session " while marble monastery.

The rigors of Plebe Year were no match for his determination and he tackled academ- ics as he did every challenge, with eagerness and effort and was rewarded with stars. He had a remarkable affinity for food and eating but since his athletic love was boxing, he made the greatest of sacrifices when he went on a diet in order to fight in the Brigade Championships. A friend to all, his high per- sonal ideals made him a worthy leader and since his every effort is his best effort, Arch will be an outstanding officer in any Navy billet he chooses. DAVID RILEY WRIGHT Doc 11th Company Clarksville, being an army town, has produced many excellent military men, but the home- town can be very proud of this midshipman. Having spent two years in college majoring in Physics, " Doc " had little trouble with aca- demics at USNA and his name could consis- tently be found on the " Supt ' s List. " " Doc " took an avid interest in many fields as indi- cated by his participation in such activites as Brigade Activities Committee, managing Var- sity baseball and Company sports. " Doc " has an attitude that very few possess. An ex- tremely conscientious person and a pursuer of perfection, he will surely be a definite asset to the service in Navy Air. W ROBERT CHARLES BARTLETT Bob 12th Company Bob graduated from Schuylkill Haven Area Joint High School in 1959. After studying for a year at Bull is Prep School, he entered the Academy. He played a year of Plebe baseball and then he concentrated his athletic abil- ities on intramural sports. Bob also assisted in the forming of a Rugby team and sang in the Chapel Choir. A good sense of humor has helped Bob through the trying times here at the Academy and has won him many friends. Upon graduation, Bob plans to grace the Navy Line with his corpulent presence. RICHARD MONTGOMERY BRINER Dick 12th Company Dick, being a Navy Junior, was no stranger to Navy ways when he came to us, after a year at NAPS. Never having much trouble with the routine, he more often than not, could be found in a horizontal position during his free time. Wrestling occupied his sports activities throughout the entire year and he was an " N " Star " winner. Graduation will bring Dick a few years of bachelorhood and a career in Naval Aviation. He was a good friend to all of us who knew him and there is little doubt that Navy Air will profit by his choice of service. JOSEPH HAMER CAPPALONGA Joe 12th Company Joe, coming from the Philadelphia area, ran Track at Phoenixville High School and has been an active participant in the intramural sports system here at the Academy. His other activities include membership in both the German and Newman Clubs. He has done well in his academic subjects and particu- larly so in Math. As Joe tends toward the quiet side, he can often be found engrossed in a good book or listening to classical mu- sic. Joe has always been interested in sub- marines, but after a voluntary sub cruise during Second Class summer, the interest developed into plans for Nuclear Power School and acquiring those hard sought " dolphins " . with their cameras and their interest. ROBERT JOSEPH CEPEK Cepes 12th Company " Cepes " was known as the 12th ' s walking " Book of Knowledge, " on the Navy. His love for the sea would lure him into the Bay every Spring and Fall with the Y.P. Squadron. In the Winter, he could be found battling it out on the frozen turf in Fieldball and Football. Due to his diligent nature, Bob never let the Academic Department get ahead of him and could always find the time to help a less fortunate classmate. To be a salty, old De- stroyerman is his dream and his abilities and devotion to duty will be more than enough to one day put him on the bridge in command of his own destroyer. JAMES JOSEPH CHECKETT Jim 12th Company Jim came to USNA from St. Louis, Missouri after a year at St. Louis University. His con- tact with the Academy began before his arrival, however, when he met Navy Soccer Coach, Glenn Warner. Jim has more than borne out Coach Warner ' s hopes for an out- standing soccer player and has been a main- stay on Navy ' s team for three years. This same competitive spirit has also aided his Company ' s sports standing. Academics has offered Jim no insurmountable problems and upon graduation, his desire is to enter the Destroyer Navy as a Line officer. Jim ' s en- thusiasm should certainly benefit the " tin can " Navy. ERNEST JAMES COPPOLA Ernie 12th Company Ernie, as a member of a service family, has lived in many interesting places including Alaska. He came to the Academy straight from Norfolk Catholic High School where he excelled in both academics and athletics and was the Captain of a winning Track team. Since he has come to the Academy, he has been consistently on the Superin- tendent ' s List and an active participant in sports. Upon graduation, Ernie plans to go into Navy Line and later into C.E.C. or E.D.O. with appropriate post graduate work. ROBERT JEAN DOUGAL Bruno 12th Company Bruno comes from the Pacific Northwest and loves to describe to anyone, this land of scenic mountains and large fir trees. While at Lincoln High, he earned letters in football, wrestling and baseball. He continued these athletic abilities here, but concentrated more on Varsity Baseball. Bob, a confirmed bache- lor, was never lacking in sleep and his week- ends were occupied either in the Pad or at the movies. With each different phase of his training, he changed his mind concerning his choice of service. At times he is still un- decided but whichever service he decides on will be getting a good man. Each morning, battalion and company officers confer among themselves and with the stripers DONALD GENE ELLIS Don 12th Company Hailing from the landlocked prairie of Okla- homa, Don came to the Academy straight from high school. Plebe summer found him out for Battalion fencing, the sport that he was to follow for the rest of his time here. Academics were met with a quiet, determined approach which earned Don his stars through- out his stay at the Academy. This same de- termination won Don his Fencing " N " as a Segundo. His spare time was spent with a book or an occasional g ame of chess. With his determined spirit and willingness to learn, Don is looking forward to a long career in Nuclear Power. Gentlemen, we ' ve fallen way behind our quota And so we ' ve decided to have P-rades on Friday as well 215 RAY FREY Ray 12th Company Ray was known as the " slash " of the Acad- emy, not for his academic achievements but for his fantastic fencing career. With only a three year background in the sport in high school, it didn ' t take Ray long to become the top foil man at the Academy. Always one of the 12th ' s happiest members, big and easy " Uncle Ray ' never let the routine get him down. Besides his many other attributes, Ray became skilled in the game of academic Russian Roulette, but fortunately he never let any of the departments get the last laugh. After his four years at USNA, Ray plans on spending the majority of his time at sea with Navy Line. WILLIAM HARVEY FUGARD Willy 12th Company To come to the Naval Academy was Willy ' s goal since his days in high school. The first in his family to choose the Naval profession, he arrived from Santa Monica, California a month after graduating from school. Willy didn ' t have much trouble with Plebe year, and has always maintained a high class standing. A quiet manner and a good mind have made it easy for him to adjust to Acad- emy life and to do well in most things. Time not spent on studies was taken up with intra- mural sports, Protestant Choir or Glee Club, letter writing, reading or maybe an occasional drag. Upon graduation, Willy hopes to find a place with those who have chosen Navy Air. JOHN MATTHEW GERAGHTY Jack 12th Company A suburbanite from New York, Jack wasted little time in arriving at the Academy after graduation from Fordham Prep. An intricate knowledge of Latin derivatives and Ancient Greek, dropped in catchy phrases from time to time, never ceased to amaze friends. His academic interests were centered in Liberal Arts and he excelled in all E.H. G. courses. Basketball took most of his sport time but after basketball, he found time to lose several balls into the river for the soft- ball team. Jack ' s drive and determination will insure success in whatever branch of the Navy he decides to go into. The complex administration of the Brigade is discussed DANIEL FRANCIS GLEVY Dan 12th Company Dan graduated from St. Benedict ' s Prep in Newark, New Jersey. After a six month term at Rutger ' s and a year and a hal f in the Fleet, Dan made his move to the Academy. Here, Dan ' s activities included the Ocean Sailing Squadron, Juice Gang and 12th Com- pany Softball, soccer and cross country. His main contribution to the Brigade was his great sense of humor and endless supply of jokes and funny stories. It was well nigh im- possible to be in a bad mood when Dan was nearby. Upon graduation, Dan will go to Pensacola for flight training and eventually his Navy Wings. and passed on to those who will carry it out RONALD IRVIN GREGG Ron 12th Company Bringing with him from Wilmington, Delaware, a warm smile for everyone, Ron did much to brighten the Company. His love of sports and genuine athletic ability showed themselves whether he was engaged in Varsity Track or the Company sports. He brought home many soccer victories for the Company. Foresworn that the Academic Department would never lick him, Ron set out to keep them on the run and did a good job of it. His friends and shipmates will always remember his depend- ability and cheerful nature. Their number is proof in itself that we will hear more of him. ROBERT LAWRENCE JOHNSON Johnse 12th Company " Johnse " came to use from Exeter Academy and will always be remembered for his broad grin and oft-shaved cranium. Nothing gave him more pleasure than Plebe and Varsity Lacrosse, with a little fieldball thrown in to pass the time on winter afternoons. Few will ever forget the " Segundo " who ran the show at E.D. each morning of Plebe summer. Not particularly known for academic excellence, he made it through with a strong willingness to work. This quality, coupled with his win- ning personality, spell nothing but success for Bob. DENNIS ARTHUR LAWRENCE Den 12th Company After graduating from Clifton High, Den entered the Academy via a congressional appointment. He was one of those who thrived on Plebe year by excelling in both academics and company sports. Since then, Den has maintained his high academic aver- age, and his name has constantly been a part of the Superintendent ' s List. His smiling face and good humor have been a great aid to his classmates during the dark times at Annap- olis. These qualities also seemed attractive to the many girls he was seen to drag. Upon graduation Den intends to hop in his con- vertible and head for Pensacola. His great interest in flying will insure his future suc- cess in earning the Navy Wings of Gold. WALTER HENRY LENHARD III Butch 12th Company A graduate of Episcopal Academy in Phila- delphia, Butch attended Bui I is Prep before entering the Academy. A champion wrestler in high school, his carerr stopped right here when he broke two fingers. Long a summer visitor on the Jersey Shore, Butch turned his efforts to the Varsity Sailing team where he has been consistently a top man. Aside from athletics, Butch has many interests, academ- ics, however, not being one of his favorites. He was still able to get his name on the Superintendent ' s List on several occasions. Butch ' s keen mind, drive and tenacity will certainly make him one of our top notch aviators in years to come. » • f » fe M ; And quickly, the morning has passed the great American taxpayer ?t i ■ ' S ' S f ry « 1 1 ■ t ij9tyfry vwr I DALE WARREN LUCAS Luke 12th Company The small, midwestern town of Waseca, Min- nesota claims Luke as its own and rightfully so, too. At 123 pounds, Luke, with his well known good manners, tends to fool most people who have not seen him in action on the Varsity wrestling mat. He flips his op- ponents around with the fierceness of a bull loose in a china shop. After wrestling season, Luke joins forces with the Battalion Tennis team. It is a sure bet that he will take into Navy Air the same drive, determination and social presence that he has exhibited in his four successful years at USNA. MICHAEL McNEAL MARTIN Mike 12th Company Entering the Academy right after high school, Mike gave up a life of fun in his hometown of Charleston, West Virginia, to dedicate himself to four years of austerity at USNA. Being a serious individual, he took full ad- vantage of the courses offered and compiled an impressive academic record. His spare time found him sailing on the Ocean Racing team, writing innumerable letters to a lucky West Virginia miss, or attacking the drudgery of his job as Photography Editor of the " Lucky Bag " . He hopes to go into Naval Air and then on to post graduate school for his Masters. PAUL DEVENPORT McMANUS Mac 12th Company Mac spent one year at Bui I is Prep after graduating from Gonzaga High School in D. C. and traveled all of thirty five miles to the banks of the Severn. During his four years at the Academy, he was very active in intra- murals and always on hand to help out his Company ' s soccer, cross country and squash teams. Mac also found time to manage the Navy basketball team for four years, where he earned his big Navy " N " . Academics pro- vided a challenge and after a few close calls, Mac has managed to come out the victor. His enthusiasm and friendliness will insure his future success. Mac is after the cherished gold wings from Pensacola and we know he can ' t miss. it is time for noon meal formation EDWARD FRANCIS MIGLARESE, Jr. Ed 12th Company A great sense of humor, a facility with a slide rule and a solid knowledge of the humanities are the major qualities that this smiling Italian brought to us here at the Academy. After two years at Rutgers University and a year of work, Ed brought us his ready wit and ability to laugh at the situation, no matter what. An outstanding athlete, Ed spent all of his spare time playing company sports and was influential in many a victory of the 12th. Ed can ' t decide between the green of the Marine Corps and the Wings of Gold, so he made up his mind to wear both of them, as a Marine Aviator. His determination and will to win will insure him a long and successful career. Lunch is a pleasant time RO TERRY MILANETTE Rots 12th Company Terry came to the Academy after a year at Auburn Community College, Auburn, New York. Liberal Arts subjects are his preference and in those subjects he excelled, while the engineering subjects demanded most of his study time. Although not a member of any varsity team, he was a mainstay to the 12th ' s soccer, fieldball and Softball teams. In his spare time here at the Academy, his officer- like qualities showed up whenever he had the opportunity to take charge or get a specific job done. Since he has always wanted a career in aviation, Terry especially enjoyed Second Class summer at Pensacola. LOUIS DAVID MILIOTI, Jr. Lou 12th Company Lou had a headstart on most of his class- hecause he spent three years with the ■ efore coming to USNA, via the Naval my Prep School. Lou first saw a la- I - .vhile at prep school.

Grad- ito his sports i for Navy Air. THOMAS OLIVER MURRAY, Jr. Tom 12th Company Tom came to us after a short stay in the " black shoe " Navy, by way of the Naval Prep School. This previous background helped him over many a hurdle in the course of Plebe year. Athletically, Tom excelled in Lacrosse and intramural football. His quick wit and readiness to help others won him many friends in the Brigade. Because he made his home only forty-five minutes away, he was constantly seen with a well endowed drag on his arm. Thus was solved the problem of whether to study or drag. Coming from a long line of Naval aviators, Tom plans on depart- ing from this tradition by entering the Supply Corps, after graduation. JOSEPH FRANCIS NAVOY Joe 12th Company Finding most interesting and challenging, that which was most difficult, this Bostonian met and conquered every obstacle put before him. Languages came easiest and were ulti- mately passed up in favor of professional courses which presented a more challenging aspect. A chronic complainer, he still would never admit that anything " couldn ' t be done " . Stars and the Superintendent ' s List never came to him with any degree of ease, but with hard work and little sleep, he was able to obtain them. The Nuclear Silent Service is his present aspiration, but no matter what his ultimate destination, Joe will be a wel- come addition to any ship. I JOHN ERNEST NICKLO, Jr. John 12th Company John came to the Academy straight from high school, but being the son of a veteran of 23 years in the Submarine service had prepared him well for Navy routine here at USNA. He participated on the Battalion Tennis and Handball teams and Company Squash teams, several of which won Brigade Championships. John quickly became one of the top handball players in the Brigade. Academics posed no stumbling block for him and he especially excelled in Math. During the fun of 2 C sum- mer, John had enough time for some serious thought and decided to make the cockpit his future home and office. JAMES ALEXANDER OUNSWORTH Jim 12th Company Jim came to the Academy straight out of high school in Philadelphia. Having been a good student and athlete there, he readily adjusted to the life at Navy and proceeded to do well in these two fields. Athletically, he played football, basketball, track and tennis, on the Battalion and Company level. In aca- demics, he managed to maintain a fairly re- spectable standing. Despite these activities, he was still able to engage in extracurricular endeavors such as the Foreign Affairs Club. Looking into the future, Jim leans heavily toward the destroyer or submarine Navy. ARMAND THEODORE PALATUCCI Ted 12th Company Coming straight from the streets of the Bronx, and Fordham Prep High School, Ted carried his likeable manner to the shores of the Severn. Although an outstanding football player in high school, a knee injury prevented him from playing Varsity football here. Ted ' s ever present wit and his facility with aca- demics, after a rough start Plebe year, have earned him an honored place in the hearts of his classmates. Right now, the two bright things in Ted ' s future are both gold, a wedding ring and Navy Wings, but not neces- sarily in that order. marking as it does, the halfway point of the day . . . RICHARD HARRIS PHELAN Dick 12th Company Coming straight to Navy from his hometown high school in Davenport, Iowa, Academy life was just a little different for our fun loving Dick. It cut down on his time out on the golf course and knocked two or three girls off his list of beauties. His ability to handle a basketball soon earned him the nickname of " Tricky Dick " . Never one to turn down a good time, Dick could often be found dragging Maryland ' s finest. With his well rounded per- sonality and versatility, Dick will make a wel- come addition to any branch of the service. WILLIAM FRANCIS QUIRK, Jr. Bill 12th Company Prior to entering the Academy, Bill attended St. Joseph ' s Prep in Philadelphia, where his background in Greek and Latin has put him in good stead with the Academic Department. His interests ran from Company basketball to Varsity Crew, and from the Newman Club to a certain very pretty Miss. " Bull " was Bill ' s forte, but the Weapons Department has not yet fully recovered from his erudite miscal- culations. Though Bill was quieter than most, he loved to laugh and once this red-headed Irishman got his dander up, there was no doubt that the issue in question was re- solved. Bill hopes for a long and successful career in Nuclear submarines. THOMAS GEORGE RAFFO Tom 12th Company The rambling redhead from Glen Rock, New Jersey, a three letter man in high school, used his athletic ability, here at the Academy, to a good advantage. The southpaw pitcher was an asset to Navy ' s baseball teams and he was an avid competitor in intramural sports during the off-season. Always smiling, Tom was there to cheer up anyone, at any time and was always ready to relate a few facts about the latest of his many romances. Summer cruises were Tom ' s specialty and his " work hard but play harder " philosophy will make him an asset to any branch of the Navy. JOHN EDWIN ROBERTS John 12th Company John graduated from Somerset High School, Somerset, Kentucky, before coming to the Academy, via NAPS in Bainbridge, Maryland. John ' s Plebe year was extremely gratifying and he became well known for his ability to I express himself and his originality in themes and essays has been well received.

Navy Line looms in the future of this young man and considering his out- standing potential and abilities, he is going j to go very far in his Naval career. filling the stomach JOSEPH FRANK SATRAPA Joe 12th Company Joe was born in Glendale, California and moved to Tujunga, California where he at- tended school.

After gradu- ation, he plans attending Flight School at Pensacola, since this has been his goal all through school. and providing moments of fun and relaxation WILLIAM LARKINS SHEEHAN, Jr. Bill 12th Company Bill made his entrance into the Naval Acad- emy following a year at Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama. Intensely interested in all athletics, his skills played a major role in many winning Company and Battalion teams. A consistent member of the " Supt ' s List, " Bill always had time to show the way to those of us on the losing end of the battle with the Steam and Skinny Departments. Bill never experienced the " Dark Ages " because his weekends were always brightened by love- ly lasses from the surrounding areas. With his well rounded personality, his service will certainly be an asset to any branch of the Navy. No, you may not have my B-robe GEOFFREY RAYMOND SHUMWAY Geoff 12th Company Being the son of a Naval aviator, Geoff ' s homes were varied, but the Shumways finally settled in the Finger Lake region of New York. This diversified background was reflect- ed in his talents and interests which varied from reading and music to sports and a healthy interest in the opposite sex. His principal sports interests were pole vaulting and squash, but during leave he could often be found at a ski lodge or on the beach somewhere. When not occupied with main- taining his position on the Superintendent ' s List, his musical ability on the guitar oft provided amusement for everyone. Geoff should prove to be a very welcome addition to Naval Aviation. THOMAS JOHN SWARTZ Tom 12th Company Detroit, Michigan produced the nearest thing to a human perpetual motion machine, in Tom. From his early morning rising for Mass to his late lights in the Library, he was always on the go. He always worked hard, whether in academics, sports or endeavors with the fair sex. His successful campaign for the class presidency was notable for the drive he put into it. The Plebes will always remember him for his fantastic school spirit, as he made them memorize the football team. With his high academic standing, Tom hopes for Nuclear Power School and even Admiral Rick- over won ' t be able to stop him until he be- comes an outstanding Naval officer. DAVID DERBY THOMPSON Dav 12th Company A top athlete and student from Cranstor Rhode Island, Dave was a successful an ' popular member of the Brigade. His stor telling ability and wit will long be remerr bered. He was always at the top of the clas: in athletics, was " Supt ' s List " material and worked at a tough Varsity swimming schedulJ as well. When not at the Academy, Dave could often be found Skin Diving or lolling on thJ beach. His thoughts of the opposite sex werd occupied by his O.A.O. and a great deal o] his free time was devoted to her company! His warm personality and versatile capabi li j ties are good assurance that this is a mar you will see more of in the future. It is noon WOODROW WILSON VAUGHAN, Jr. Arky 12th Company Arky, a converted Army brat, came to us after a brief stay at William and Mary and West Point but found little future in taking college boards so here he stayed. His time here was divided between Varsity basketball and his daily letter to his O.A.O. He also played golf, sang in the Antiphonal Choir and excelled in academics. Swimming seemed to be his only nemesis and a 2.5 was a max grade. His orderly mind was one of his assets, being able to plan for a term leave three years in advance. After marriage, Arky plans on enter- ing the Supply Corps and we are sure he will make a fine officer and a credit to the Naval service. a new watch . . . KARL ALFRED VOGELER III Karl 12th Company Karl came to Navy directly from Boca Ciega High in St. Petersburg, Florida. Neither Plebe year or academics proved to be a real prob- lem to him and he was constantly found on the " Supt ' s List " during his stay. Athletically, Karl centered his attention on the Light- weight Crew at Navy. During the off-season, he battled for the 12th on the intramural fields. His dry humor and " off the cuff " re- marks brought smiles to the faces of his companions on many an occasion. After grad- uation, Karl will be hurrying back south in his new sports car to join the ranks of Naval Aviation. RICHARD MANN WILSON Dick 12th Company Dick ' s locker was stuffed with books, pictures of his many girls, fencing gear and hair tonic which just about sums up the major in- terests of this versatile Memphian. His dili- gence at his studies was more than offset by his barbed wit and master of the repartee, and he was a welcomed member of our " study time " bull sessions as he will also be, in any wardroom of the future. Dick picked up a saber Plebe year and stoically endured multitudinous welts before earning his " N " in Second Class year. The Navy will receive a dedicated officer and a true Southern gentleman, when Dick receives his com- mission. SANFORD GREY WOODARD Sandy 12th Company Sandy came to the " quiet fishing village " on the banks of the Severn, from San Diego, California. He attended Severn School in Severn Park, Maryland for a year before com- ing to USNA, where he served on the wrestling mat and the lacrosse field. At the Academy, he held down the 137 lb. class in two Brigade Champion Wrestling teams and was a member of the National Championship Lacrosse team in 1962, in a " minor " capacity. His other athletic interest was Rugby. Al- though small in stature, he rises to great heights with his determination and enthus- iasm. Sandy stands out in a crowd and will be a welcome addition to the Fleet. BRIAN AUSTIN YOUNG Brian 12th Company A tremendous athlete at Garden City High School, Brian has continued his athletic achievements at the Academy. Youngster year, Brian was the second highest scorer on the Varsity Soccer team even though his season was cut short by a serious injury the week before the Army game. His Second Class year saw this game athlete again on the field for Navy and though taped from ankle to thigh, his performance has been a key part in many victories. His academic performance has been quite credible but tinkering with elec- trical appliances was more to his liking. His game spirit and keen competitive instinct are traits found only in our very finest Naval aviators, and we are certain he will go very far in this field. THIRTEENTH COMPANY FOURTEENTH COMPANY FIFTEENTH COMPANY SIXTEENTH COMPANY 1 AFTERNOON Classes continue after lunch, two hours more to go for all, three for many. Yet more than classes occupy a day. There is a myriad of tasks to be done. Haircuts are required every seven days and uniforms get turned into the Press Shop with the same regularity. Shoes must be taken to the Cobbler Shop and dress white uniforms turned in at the laundry. Perhaps a package needs mailing or picking up, and the Mid Store is never empty. Those of us who are lucky have swimming lessons early in the fall or late in the spring when it ' s warm, but most of us shiver through twelve lessons a year. Why is it that the Navy should so hate the water in the pool yet race during the summer for the beaches? Probably the requirements of the forty minute and four hundred yard swims have much to do with it. Then again, the companionship in the Natatorium isn ' t quite what it is at Virginia Beach. Not all afternoons are a grind. Saturday has football, basketball, lacrosse; sailing and dragging provide recreation, the Steerage is open, as are the drag houses. What ' s left of our precious monthly allowance disappears into the coffers of the Annapolis merchants. Whether in class or on liberty, the afternoon wears on. 226 m WW % v$ fe ZZ 3 ■V. WUpv .

His inclination towards the social sciences, coupled with " bull " overloads, gave him a strong background for his participation in the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Con- ference and the Foreign Relations Club. Jerry was held in high esteem by his classmates as proven by his election to the Honor Com- mittee. An active member in company sports, he showed that will and desire to win that characterized all his efforts. Looking forward to a Navy career, Jerry will be rewarded with great success in the future. LEONARD JOHN BALLBACK, Jr. Butch 13th Company Butch came straight to USNA from Catholic High School in Norfolk, Virginia. Academics being no problem, he was able to devote much time to the " Trident " staff and the Varsity Crew team. A playboy at heart, Butch found it difficult to display the " Ivy League " look in a double breasted Blue Service, but he did manage, for four years, to retain his golden locks. His many outside interests varied from sports cars to classical music and diversity is the key to his choice of drags, also. With his hardworking manner and innate ability to get along with others, Butch will surely do well in the future. WILLIAM CARL BLAHA 13th Company Bill, an Air Force junior, has lived in man parts of this country, but considers San An tonio, Texas, his home. He entered the Acad emy with a presidential appointment afte attending Braden Prep School. He has madt his presence known in academics, sports artfJKpic extracurricular activities, and finished Plebx year, wearing stars. He played football am baseball. He was a member of the Improve ment Committee, his Youngster Year and member of the Class Policy Committee am the French club. Bill is anticipating a caree in the Marine Corps, and certainly will be welcome addition to the officer ranks of th Corps. While there are classes after lunch VINCENT TIMOTHY CANALE Tim 13th Company Being of sound mind and healthy aspirations, Tim left Notre Dame after two years and entered the Naval Academy. It was a good year for him as well as for his hometown, Teaneck, New Jersey, which sent along two other Plebes, with Tim. Taking full advantage of the Academy ' s varied activities, Tim saw compc i e Yawl and Knockabout races for two years, paced the Company sports teams during the winter months, found ' sing tenor in the Choirs, and even passed his courses with reasonable deftness. The Supply Corps holds Tim ' s Future interests and we hope this his Future days will be just as varied and rewarding. ;l( ' K picks Notre Dame over Navy. there is time, too, for much refinements as haircuts . . . Just a little off the top ERIC CARLSON Eric 13th Company After graduating with honors from Graveraet High School, Marquette, Michigan, Eric spent one year at Northern Michigan College en- route to the Naval Academy. Spending no more time than was necessary on studies, he was able to maintain a " Supt ' s List " average, focusing his efforts toward a Math major. After classes Eric could often be found on the Squash courts winning matches for the Company team. Although a terror with the Plebes, he was more than willing to go out of his way to help someone who was really trying. His ease in applying himself to any task set before him, be it physical or mental, will ensure Eric a rewarding future. HIRAM WARD CLARK, Jr. Bo 13th Company Upon graduating from Montgomery Blair High School in Takoma Park, Maryland, Bo at- tended Bui I is Prep School before entering the Naval Academy. His athletic abilities were proven on the intramural fieldball and soccer fields. Bo was able to maintain a fine academic average, which was a striking ac- complishment considering his full social life. His sense of humor precipitated a " curt witti- cism " in any situation and his comments en- couraged a relaxed atmosphere. Bo ' s keen mind coupled with his ability to win friends will surely prove rewarding in his future. newly organized into an efficient system MAXIE STEPHEN DAY Max 13th Company Max came to USNA from the Black Hills of North Dakota. Always quick with a joke or a smile, Max could be found wherever there was a party or a girl. Rowing stroke oar in Battalion Crew and an active participant in Company sports, Max was always in the thick of the struggle with a " never say die " atti- tude. His perseverance brought him through several bouts with the Academics Department as he learned more about his chosen service. Always interested in better and faster meth- ods of travel, Max will be one of the best jet pilots in his squadron. of signed up appointments. CHARLES FRANKLIN DUREPO Durps 13th Company Durps came to the Academy after a session at Bull is Prep. Each Fall Charlie ' s time was taken up by his hard play on the football team and when it came time to " Beat Army " , he was on the field contributing to our string of victories over this foe. Born in Boston and now residing in New Britain, Connecticut, he possessed that New Englander frankness that made many friends for him throughout the Brigade. Charlie is a strong willed character and under pressure, he always comes out on top. With this type of determination, he will do well flying high with Navy Air. WILLIAM LAWRENCE FORESTELL Willie 13th Company Two years after graduating from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, Willie quit his survey- ing crew and came to USNA. Willie had very little trouble with the " system " or academics and his name was often on the Superinten- dent ' s List. In intramural sports, including soccer, football and Softball, Willie was a standout because of his athletic prowess and because of his most prized possession, a shock of bright red hair. During study hours, Willie had a. reputation for being smart enough to help anybody in trouble, and al- ways seemed to find the time to do it. I am sure that his capacity for work and the ability to get along with people will stand him in good stead in any wardroom in the Navy. ROBERT RICHARD FREDLUND, Jr. Dick 13th Company A native of Maryland, " Fredhead " came to Canoe U. right out of high school. An able sailor, he adapted readily to the system, and thus breezed through Plebe year. He made many friends and had a cheerful word for everyone and every occasion. His varied abili- ties were evidenced by his participation in the YP Squadron, the Drum and Bugle Corps and a championship Debate Team. Unlike most Plebes, Dick kept his high school flame and was rarely seen without his Jeanie. Navy Air looks very inviting to, this good natured French " slash " but his personality guarantees him success in whatever he chooses to do. GEORGE MICHAEL HEWITT Mike 13th Company Mike came to the Academy from high school in St. Paul His outgoing personality enabled him to adapt easily to Academy life, and Plebe year presented no problems. Being a joiner at heart, Mike found himself in the middle of several extra-curricular activities. His favorite activities were singing in the Glee Club and Catholic Choir. Mike ' s favorite sport was Wrestling, and his ability enabled him to make the Varsity team, Second Class year. Attaining a Math major took much of Mike ' s time, but he still found time for dragging ancl was a good man at any party. The Nuclear Navy will be receiving a worthy addition when Mike puts out to sea with the Polaris Subs. .4 kindly lady we know We came, we saw, and we Beat Army JAMES OREM HUBBARD Jim 13th Company Jim was one of many men who entered the Academy from NAPS and accustomed as he was to military life, from his eighteen months of service in the Navy, Jim soon became recognized as an outstanding midshipman. He earned his first " N-star " on Navy ' s fine soccer team of 1962. Though Jim ' s main in- terest was soccer, he was also an excellent basketball player. Jim always stood in the middle of the Class, academically, and his natural curiosity led to many hours of out- side reading. Jim plans to embark upon a career in Destroyers after graduation. STEPHEN EREK JENSTAD Erek 13th Company A native of Minneapolis, Erek brought his wit, keen mind and easy going manner to the Academy, directly from high school. Academ- ics proved to be no problem as he obtained a Math major and consistently appeared on the Superintendent ' s List. Erek demonstrated his athletic prowess on the Company Soccer ceam and on the handball courts. He had a definite appeal to members of the opposite sex and always enjoyed a good party. He quickly accepted responsibility and spent many hours working for the French Club, but would defend, with fierce pride, his Nor- wegian ancestry, at a moments notice. Erek will undoubtedly, attain a high degree of success in the Navy. MICHAEL JAY KENSLOW Mike 13th Company Mike came to the Academy after spending two years in the Naval Reserve on a sub- marine. With this background, he quickly became one of the most squared-away mem- bers of the Class. His grease shoes were the envy of the Company and his skill at sending code was admired by all. Most of his after- noons were spent over at the boat house, as a Varsity Crew Coxswain, but he still found time for the Portuguese and Radio Clubs. His duels with the Academic Board were a con- cern to everyone and the whole company was proud when he emerged victorious. Since he cannot go back to conventional boats, Mike hopes to go Navy Air. But wherever he goes, his friendly Texas accent and devotion to duty will stand him in good stead. prepares the much-sought Navy blanket . . . WILLIAM BENTON LYNCH Bill 13th Company Following his graduation from Plainfield High School, Plainfield, New Jersey, Bill traveled to USNA via the Navy Reserves and Colum- bian Prep, where he adopted his adamant respect for the culinary arts. Plebe year saw Bill as a member of the swimming and track teams and during the following years, Bill carried his athletic skills to the lacrosse field. Being concerned about the discipline of military life, Bill displayed his leadership qualities, while training the incoming Class of 1966. Reserving a final decision, Bill ' s present plans are for a bachelor officer ' s billet in the Navy Line. symbol of achievement, ROBERT JOSEPH MILHISER Milly 13th Company the minute Bob struggled into the Academic Year Room with two carts of gear, in tow, it was easy to see that the military life would be no problem for him. He left high school and Tamaqua, Pennsylvania for a year at Holy Cross on an NROTC scholar- ship. Winning a congressional appointment to the Academy, his college background helped Bob to the " Supt ' s List " his Plebe Year. He maintained well above average standings in all of the offered courses, as well as in his Math major. The Company sports were his outlet for his athletic drive. Among his many interests, Bob was active on the staff of the " Trident " and enjoyed all of the French Club banquets. Bob has decided on a Line career and post graduate work in Math.

Continuing his football efforts at USNA, Steve became an important member of the Big Blue Team. His four years on the Severn have not changed his love for the West and he is always ready to defend it as being the best part of the country. His easy going manner and good nature is re- flected in the high esteem that Steve ' s friends have for him. Undecided as to what part of the Navy he will pursue, he will surely be a credit and a success, wherever he goes in the future. RONALD JOSEPH MOSER Ron 13th Company After spending a year at Xavier University Ron came East bringing with him, his love of Kentucky and thoroughbred horses. Ir sports, Ron was the mainstay on the Com pany basketball and volleyball teams. Not ar academic slash, he nevertheless, attained th magic 2.50 several times.

After graduation, Ron will join the best of the jet jockeys, when he pins on those Navy Wing; of Gold. JOSEPH FRANCIS HILLERY NEAL Joby 13th Company A typical red-haired, laughing Irishman, Joe will always be remembered for his boundless energy and sparkling personality. Hailing from the shores of Lake Erie, Joby found time for many of his varied interests, including various company sports, YP ' s, PRC, an Eagle Cruise and SCUBA School Summer Training. His first love has always been the water, preferr- ing to be below more than on the surface. Joe has aspirations toward a career in UDT but wherever he goes this freckle-finned fish will always be an asset to the Navy. JOHN JOSEPH OEHLER John 13th Company Leaving behind the sunny clime of California, John enthusiastically plunged into the mili- tary life at the Academy. Learning quickly, he soon left his civilian habits behind and be- came a real credit to the Brigade. In his first two years, he played football but decided on a less time consuming sport and so tried his hand at Ocean Sailing and Battalion Track. Though not at the top of his class, academics were never a worry to John and he seemed to find time to spend on Chess and Bridge. The surface fleet will probably be John ' s choice, although Navy Air looms bright at times as a probable future career. more an award than a decoration, warmly coveted. JAMES LOUIS POOLE Lou 13th Company Lou entered the Academy upon graduation from Navasota High School, where he ex- celled in academics, athletics and leadership. Lou was able to use each of these talents during his four years at USNA. His agressive- ness in intramural sports was reflected in the win columns of the football and fieldball teams. Working toward the Engineering Duty Officer, Lou attained the " Supt ' s List " and focused his efforts toward a Marine Engineer- ing major. A typical Texan, his determination is his outstanding attribute and his initiative and perseverance will assure him a success- ful career. DAVID JON PARRY Dave 13th Company Dave came to the Academy straight from Blakely High School, where he was a three letter man. Although academics have been a constant harassment and very time consum- ing for him, he still has found time to win his " N " on the Dinghy Sailing Team. Not satisfied with this. Dave has gone on to be- come an outstanding leader on the Company football team. Keeping up with his duties in the Public Relations Club and helping with various company activities, rounded out this busy mid ' s schedule. Dave plans on going to Pensacola and Navy Air after graduation. PATRICK MICHAEL PROUT Pat 13th Company Pat, coming from Brooklyn, spent two years at Hunter College before accepting his ap- pointment to the Academy. Leaving the social life, and his Track medals behind, Pat made a quick adjustment to academy life. He soon found he could devote his energy to areas other than academics and still remain in the upper quarter of his class. He displayed his athletic prowess in Varsity soccer and track, and showed his all round abilities by partici- pation in the French, Newman and Foreign Relations Clubs. His immaculate appearance and mature judgement can never be mistaken and is indicative of the fine leadership that he showed while at the Academy. NORMAN DALE RADTKE Norm 13th Company Industnousness, perseverance and modesty are the words best used to describe Norm. Coming to the Academy from Manistee High School, he had no difficulties in adjusting to life here. There was never a moment to be wasted with him and he was always to be found either with the books, on the football field, or on the basketball and tennis courts. He was a member of the Varsity Football and Tennis teams and a valuable asset to the Company ' s basketball team. He also found time for the French Club, Naval Academy Christian Ass ' n, Foreign Relations Club and was co-chairman of the Advanced Math and Science Seminar. The determination that Norm applied to his work here should make it easy for him to attain whatever goal he seeks in the future. NORMAN WILSON RAY Wilson 13th Company Wilson saw his first Navy recruiting poster in Greenville, Illinois and following his father ' s Naval footsteps, he decided to see the world in Navy blue. Truly a man of the " old school " , as arts and letters are his specialty and his charm and wit make him a worthy competitor in any social situation. His performances in the Masqueraders ' productions of " Billy Budd, " " The Inspector General " and " Three Men On A Horse " left no doubt of his abilities for character interpretations. We know that he will be a popular and competent addition to our Navy-Marine Corps team. We have our clothes pressed, shoes resoled JERRY HERBERT ROBERTS III Orkie 13th Company Orkie was born and raised " deep in the Land of the South " . Entering USNA after graduat- ing from high school, Orkie brought along with him all of the friendliness and kindli- ness of a true Rebel. With his warm smile and cheerful greetings, Orkie acquired many friends in his years at the Academy. While at Canoe U., Orkie proved to have both a keen mind and tremendous athletic ability which he showed by raising his academic standing each year and be participating in Varsity Football for three years. He was also an out- standing member of the Company basketball and Softball teams. With his enthusiasm and zest for life, Orkie will be a fine addition to the Navy.

Bill received his appointment through the NROTC and the following summer, headed to USNA. Even though Bill enjoyed the Acad- emy, its life managed to age him remarkably well as evidenced by his distinguished grey hair. Bill ' s primary extracurricular interest is music and was in the Concert Band and a member of the " Hell Cats " for four years. Throughout his four years, Bill had but one ambition and that was to be assigned to a destroyer. In order to insure his goal, he joined the Y.P. Squadron his Second Class year. The Navy will be glad to receive into its fold this competent Naval officer and " Destroyerman " . RICHARD ALLAN SHAPACK Dick 13th Company After spending a year at Rutgers University, Dick came to USNA to learn the ways of the Sea. A suave dancer, as shown by four years of activity on the Hop Committee, it didn ' t take an expert to see that there was more than one drag charmed by this dashing Mid. Academics gave Dick no trouble and he was a veritable " slash " in the Bull department. Many pleasant afternoons were spent on Chesapeake Bay, with Dick at the helm of a yawl. Dick was always involved in two or three activities and be it Foreign Relations Club or athletics, one could always count on a first rate job. Wherever Dick goes in the future, his associates will find that organi- zation and planning will be no problem for him. RAYMOND GLENN SNYDER Ray 13th Company Ray came to Annapolis from Long Beach City College and exhibited his athletic prowess by winning Varsity letters in both Baseball and Football. He played a large part in obtaining several victories over Army. Putting it simply, Ray was a nice guy and the type of fellow that people enjoyed knowing. He was always willing to discuss football or baseball with anyone and was much appreciated by those who weren ' t too athletically inclined. In ad- dition to his knowledge of sports, Ray made an obvious effort to keep up with things of a professional military nature and in certain areas became something of an authority. When one looks at the effort that Ray always puts into a job, one can ' t help but know that he will end up on top. All personal services are available at Annapolis GEORGE FRANKLIN SPROWLS George 13th Company George came to the Academy from the hills of West Virginia, after working for a year. Al- though never a " star " student, he always put forth a maximum of effort to get the most out of his education. His spare time was spent working for the Brigade Activities Committee, raising money for WRNV Concerts and writing letters to that certain " someone " . Spring and Fall would find him bouncing YPs off the sea- ■hile the winter would find him giving his attention to the Company Lightweight Football team. After Aviation Summer, George was convinced that his future would be with Navy Air 236 I to keep us well-groomed, polished Midshipmen. RICHARD NORVELL STARK Bullet 13th Company Bullet is an Army brat who joined the Army, spent a year at ' the Military Academy Prep School, spent another year at the Naval Acad- emy Prep School and then finally decided to make his home at USNA. His spirit and en- thusiasm on the lacrosse and soccer fields have hampered the Army Mule ever since. Easy going and casual usually describe him but when there is work to be done, he is always ready and willing to lend a helping hand. His dedication to service life will be an asset to the Navy. Navy Line, with his keen interest in hydrofoils, appears to be a part of Dick ' s future. ' ' M ■ -a.- JOHN ALLEN SWAINBANK, Jr. Jay 13th Company Jay made his debut at USNA a few weeks after graduating from St. Johnsbury Academy m Vermont. Encountering some difficulties with the Academic Departments, Jay managed to come up with the magic 2.5 in the " mo- ment of truth " and came out on top. Jay played a variety of intramural sports and held down the position of goalie on the Brigade Champion Fieldball team. A member of the French Club and Antiphonal Choir, he will be remembered for his wit and ready smile. Always ready to expound on the advantages of the Navy Line, he will be a welcome ad- dition to any ship. PETER MICHAEL SYRKO Pete 13th Company After graduation from Donora High School, Pete spent a year at Columbian Prep, enroute to the Academy. He found academics to be no problem, though he probably could have done better if textbooks had b een printed in magazine form and placed in the Brigade Library. Once separated from his " pad " , his ath ' etic abilities proved invaluable to in- tramural sports. Pete ' s free time was spent listening to classical music and keeping up with the latest scientific discoveries. His great determination will win him an out- standing position in any field of endeavor he chooses in the future. DONNIE HUGHES THOMPSON The Fox 13th Company Donnie ' s most impressive trait was his deter- mination. Coming to the Academy straight from a south Texas farm, he found it hard to believe that people did not work from sunup to sundown. Even after four years at Canoe U. " The Fox " was still convinced that Maryland was somewhere in northeast Texas. Being the proud possessor of an outstanding baritone voice, Donnie was one of the pillars of the Chapel Choir and the Glee Club. Fox ' s dry Texas humor and good common sense made him a " must " at any gathering. Cut out all the way for Navy Line, Donnie will spend some time at sea and with his ability with the Spanish language, he may see some foreign duty. -in nil free time in the Mid Store Son your story touches me deeply, but it ' s still $4 68 ft Ml Ml • ,, 1 1 DAVID ARTHUR TRACE Dave 13th Company Dave is from Rochester, New Hampshire. Graduating from high school in 1960, he en- tered the Academy through a congressional appointment. Having an avid interest in sports, Dave advocates physical fitness and is a rigorous rooter for Navy. Sportswise, he participated in basketball on the Battalion level and football and volleyball on a Com- pany level. Dave is well known for his con- genial nature and is a popular personality with many friends in the Brigade. Having little interest in the females, his future is centered about a career in Navy Air, for which his enthusiasm should stand him in good stead. DAVID FOSTER TUMA DAVE 13th Company Dave, a Marine Corps junior, entered the Aca- demy by presidential appointment, fresh out of high school. His four years here have been memorable as shown by his fine academic achievement and extracurricular participation. Academically, Dave has been on the " Supt ' s List " a number of times. Athletically, Gym- nastics have been his main interest and Plebe year, he was a tumbler. Youngster year, he moved up to the Varsity Gym team, where he concentrated on " free exercise " . The Fall found him one of our most enthus- iastic cheer leaders. Dave earned his air- borne insignia during Second Class summer. His good appearance, military bearing and devotion to matters at hand, are the ingre- dients that will make Dave a fine officer in the Marine Corps. WILLIAM STANLEY ULRICH Bill 13th Company Bill hails from " Steeltown, USA " , Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After graduating from high school, he entered the Academy and quickly adapted to the new life. Developing his lead- ership qualities through his four years, Bill led his company to many a victory. Bill will always be remembered for his great effort in scoring the winning touchdown in the final few minutes of the ' 61 Army Game. Besides participating in football, Bill was a member of the Antiphonal Choir and the Track team. Bill ' s friendly personality and desire to com- plete a job, will make him a great asset to the Navy of the ' uture. buying toothpaste and ballpoint pens KEITH MICHAEL WERNER Keith 13th Company Keith came to USNA by way of the University of Omaha. He traded this carefree mode of education for a Navy uniform and four active years as a Midshipman. His college education stood him in good stead with Plebe year aca- demics and he carried over his excellent aca- demic records to graduation. Keith ' s dynamic drive led him to many extracurricular activ- ities. He particularly enjoyed the Catholic Choir and his experiences as a member of the Varsity Debate Team. He displayed his athle- tic ability by rowing stroke for Plebe Crew. Keith will surely be a credit to the Navy whether it is in Navy Air or the Submarine Service. _ the necessities and requirements of life BRIAN ARTHUR ARNDT Smiley 14th Company " Smile, Smile, Smile, " go the words to an old standard, and these words best express Brian ' s philosophy. He has the rare quality of being able to maintain a good academic av- erage, but not at the expense of a good time. Good times are essential to a good life and Smiley is never absent when circumstances, within or outside the " walls " , permit such an occasion. His athletic ability has contributed significantly to various intramural teams. The essentials of success are ability and a good sense of humor. Judging from this, Brian will have little trouble in his future endeavors. Presently, Naval Aviation is number one on his list. LAWRENCE PAUL BENSON Larry 14th Company Making friends easily and following his love for outdoor sports were traits of Larry which were welcomed at the Academy. His Norwe- gian ancestry perhaps explains his affinity for ice hockey and skiing. At USNA, Larry was a member of the Chapel Choir, the Glee Club • Anchormen. He is a Varsity Cheer- leader, as on the Plebe Gymnastics team and hat also had experience playing semi-pro . s yearn to wander took him to during his Youngster year and First i.mmer via a cruise with the Royal Nor- wegian Navy.

ERNEST JOSEPH BERTOLOTTI Bert 14th Company A literature major, a soccer and fieldball star, an admirer of Ginsberg, Hawthorne, Shake- speare and " rock and roll, " Bert cherished his " pad " above all else. His bed was his throne and it was a rarity that one found it vacant during a free period. Somehow he was able to get consistently high grades and be among the top members of his class. " Spot con- centration " and his ability to get right at the heart of a problem, proved to be t he mainstay behind his success. Being a truly different personality, it will come as no surprise to his friends to see Bert holding a top position in whatever field he chooses in the future. ERNEST LESTER BLAKE, Jr. Bloop 14th Company Portland, Maine boasts of this Mid and with due reason. Taking his task to heart in pre- paring himself for a career in the Navy, Ernie applied himself to the utmost and succeeded in graduating with honors. His academic prow- ess was exhibited by his stars and majors ir both French and Math. Ernie ' s athletic ability always showed on the athletic field and was instrumental in introducing Rugby to the Aca- demy. The Antiphonal Choir occupied his ex- tracurricular activities time, along with escap- ing the many grasps of the Mid-hunting drags. A smile and a friendly greeting were ir store for anyone who crossed his pa th. Ernie is guaranteed a rewarding career in Navy Air MICHAEL FRANCIS BURNS Locker 14th Company Mike left New York City for a year at Colum- bian Prep before coming to Tecumseh Tech. Having lettered in football in high school, Plebe year found him excelling in football and wrestling. The football team benefited great- ly from his blocking and tackling and it was impossible to find a more aggressive, hard- working guy, both off and on the field. Going by various nicknames, Mike could always be found wherever a study hour party was in pro- gress. A career in Navy Air awaits Mike after graduation. He certainly will be a welcome addition to the ranks of the " plane drivers. " We all wish " Locker, " the very best of luck and happy landings. HUGH EDWARD CARROL, II Hugh 14th Company Hugh came from the " Land of Sunshine, " near Orlando, Florida, after a year of pre-med at Gainesville. His friendly, straight forward manner made him a fast friend of all who made his acquaintance. A great advocate of contact sports, Hugh boxed Plebe summer and Plebe year, losing only in the Brigade Finals. An oft broken nose, which canted more and more to the left, prevented any fur- ther competition, though he stayed with the sport as a manager and assistant to Coach Rubino. Hugh professes an intense interest in the Silent Service and in the Line and may someday be a wearer of the coveted Dolphins. MAURICE RUSSELL CASKEY Maury 14th Company The hallowed halls of Mother B. will forever retain a memory of this devoted destroyer- man. Coming to USNA after Missouri State, Maury found the Academy an interesting change after his year of Frat parties, song and women. He made the transition from the Corn Belt to the Armor Belt of ships and de- cided very early on Navy Line and Destroyers, to be exact. This Destroyer duty should pro- vide an interesting future life for him. His only problem is whether he will be drawing flight, surface or sub pay while bouncing around on the deep blue. now paid for in cash only. LEINO BART CORGNATI, Jr. Bart 14th Company Born and raised in Central Illinois, Bart fashioned a sterling record in both academics and athletics before moving East to the Aca- demy. Though he received above average gra- des, Bart was never too busy for a big week- end or a general fracas. His laughter often rang through the passageways of Bancroft Hall. Bart ' s hobby while at USNA, was sports. Whether actually engaged in a company or battalion contest, or just watching and talk- ing about sports, he was at his best in this field. Navy Air is Bart ' s first choice after grad- uation and those who know this man, agree that nothing lies ahead for him but success, ful career. MICHAEL DAVID COUGHLIN Mike 14th Company Those who know him and his record, both at and before his stay at USNA, will attest to Big Mike ' s abilities in life. On the lacrosse field, where his athletic ability helped mold both the Plebe and Varsity defenses, or in the classroom, where his academic ability took over, Mike built a good name for himself. A good story, a mischievous donnybrook or the yearning for a good time, were always a part of Mike ' s life. Living most of his life in the country, near our largest city and having close ties on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Mike loved both the exciting city life and the great out of doors. No matter which branch of the service he chooses, he will do well in it and it will do well for having him. JAMES EDWARD DOUBLES Punchy 14th Company Following high school in Muskegon, Michigan, Jim packed up his civvies, water skis and his many footbtll letters and headed for Great Lakes and a naval career. After a short tour with Navy, Punchy decided to trade his white hat for a half-inch gold stripe and made for NAPS where he acquired an outstanding athletic record. This superb ability has helped him become a top gun in fieldball. His high school sweetheart managed to squeeze a ring out of him during Second Class summer, and so he had to give up his former spartan life of sleeping thru weekends. After gradua- tion, Jim and the future Mrs. D., plan to go on to Navy Air and we know that he will be a credit to Navy. RODMAN MICHAEL EDDY Mike 14th Company Aithough Mike came from a Navy family, he did not decide on a naval career until he had spent a year in the Navy attending Submarine || School. Having lived in about 17 places before the age of 20, he now calls Kingston, Wash- ington, his home. Although academics were no snap for him and he always held his breath until the final grades were posted, he escap- ed each semester, unscathed. Mike varied his free time between the female set, sports, reading and sleeping. A summer at Pensacola and a few hours in jets helped to convince him that Naval Aviation was to be his future. Our afternoon classes may include lifesaving RONALD GEORGE GEORGENSON Ron 14th Company From a destroyer in the Mediterranean to the Academy and then back to a destroyer, is the career pattern envisioned by Ron. He is very proud of his home town, Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin and of his Norwegian ancestry. Not too athletically minded, Ron has contributed to the Company and Battalion sports and served as manager to the Fencing team for four years. He has been active in extra- curricular activities, supporting the Foreign Relations Club, the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference, the French Club and the Newman Club. In his spare time, Ron has established a reputation for sleeping, when- ever possible. In whatever billet Ron serves, he will be a popular member of any group. and the techniques which may save us some day. HOWARD WILLIAM HABERMEYER, Jr. Bill 14th Company Coming from an outstanding scholastic and athletic background, Bill has made a valu- able contribution at the Academy. From the very beginning, his hard work has netted him a high academic standing. Bill has con- tributed much to the Battalion Football team and Company Basketball team, as well as being one of the better golfers at the Acad- emy. He has devoted a great deal of time studying Military History and participating in extra training during the summers. Al- though a great deal of time is spent on stud- ies, he spends several weekends during the year, dragging. Bill ' s perseverance will be a valuable asset in his future career as a Naval officer. GILBERT ARTHUR HARRISON Art 14th Company Coming to the Academy from Coffeyville, College, Art was known to his classmates as " Chipmunk " and was very proud of his home- town, Coffeyville, Kanses. We remember Art for his diligence, perseverance and hard studying. The academic departments did their best to discourage him but he always manag- ed to pull through. He was very active in Company sports and always loyally supported the 14th Company. Enchanted by music, Art was a member of the Antiphonal Choir. His ambition is Navy Air and he should make a good aviator and a good naval officer. ROBERT MESSINGER HINCKLEY III Hunker 14th Company Coming from a long line of naval officers, Bob is no stranger to the Navy life. He claims Honolulu, Hawaii as his hometown, though he has lived in many places. Here at the " Trade School " Bob excelled in Sailing, girls and ham radio. He has also contributed to the in- tramural sports teams. Bob will be remem- bered for the parties that he threw in his home, Plebe year, which were greatly appre- ciated by his classmates and provided the Upperclass with a source of enjoyment. With his easy going manner and ever smiling face, Bob will be a good flyer and a welcome addi- tion to any Navy squadron. We learn holds, breathing, strokes DAVID DeARMOND HUTSON Dave 14th Company One of the more intelligent members of the 14th, Dave could always be relied upon for assistance with any and all problems. He had an outstanding record at Detroit ' s Denby High School and managed to be on the Superin- tendent ' s List for the majority of his years at USNA. Although on the quiet side, his sheep- ish grin and wry sense of humor were familiar to all who knew him. Dave is planning a June Week marriage and was one of the very few who managed to retain the same O.A.O. through four years of sweat and strain. Being intellectually suited for most any endeavor, Dave has narrowed his choice to Nuclear Submarines and Navy Line. to make us at home in the water :;■„ STEPHEN HOWE JONES Jonesey 14th Company Jonesey came straight to the Academy from Rahway High School and brought with him the ability to make lasting friends of all who came to know him, and a fierce determination to do his best at all times. Whether on the football field or in the class, his competitive- ness has won the respect of all. During the Fall, he was the Head Coach for the Second Battalion football team. Coming from a mu- sical family, Steve has been a four year mem- ber of the Antiphonal Choir. Steve ' s primary ambition is to become a Naval Aviator, after graduation. DAVID LEE LAPHAM Fuzzy 14th Company After a short tour at Coe College, in his home- town of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Dave was off to the Marine Corps and to see the world. A year at Okinawa and Dave was on to bigger things, such as Naval Prep School and good ole ' USNA. His fine athletic ability proved to be an asset to Navy ' s cross country team, where Dave not only won his letter but also became the team ' s number one morale booster. Girls were never a problem to Dave until Plebe year and a tea fight, where he was trapped. Upon graduation, a triumphant little lady and the U. S. Marine Corps will put their respective brands on Dave and we all wish him complete success in both ventures. WILLIAM GERALD MACAULAY Enos 14th Company Bill follows two older brothers into the serv- ice academy life, as his family is also repre- sented at the Air Force Academy and the Merchant Marine Academy. Here at Annapolis, Mac has kept our routine life from becoming too much of a dull thing with his joking around and huge store of energy. Bill has a good deal of ability in both academics and athletics. This is one midshipman who will never develop that middle age spread, for Bill has always kept himself in top condition. His future holds the excitement of a nice soft job flying P 3A ' s out of New England and some world travel, before settling down. PATRICK MITCHELL MALONE Pat 14th Company An outdoorsman from Missouri, via Boston, Pat came to the Academy, determined to be- come an expert on military theory. He did just this by taking every military overload and by reading voraciously, and so he was a consistent member of the " Supt ' s List. " Ath- letics were his primary hobby, as he demon- strated by boxing during Plebe summer and working Varsity Gymnastics. One of his chief claims to fa me is that he put the cap on Herndon Monument. He claims that it was because of his rope climbing ability, but it was probably because he was the smallest man around. He attended Paratrooper School and admits that he was always the last one to float down to earth. Whatever his choice of service, he will become a fine officer. 245 ■ ; At best, it ' s still an alternate means of transportation MICHAEL HENRY MERRITTS Squish 14th Company At first meeting, Mike appears outwardly care- free, but his good friends know Mike to be conscientious and eager to do the best job possible. This attitude stems from Mike ' s previous experience as a college student and enlistment in the " white hat " Navy. Mike was the bulwark of his Company ' s heavyweight footb all and softball teams. Despite a heavy schedule as a Math major, his name could usually be found on the Superintendent ' s List, but no thanks to the Bull Dept. During his free time, Mike spent long hours labor- iously adding new and exotic words to his 100 word vocabulary. In his own words, Mike is sure to ' corruscate " in no matter what field he chooses to follow. JEFFREY MICHAEL MILLER Hayseed 14th Company Always ready for a fight or a frolic, was our Jeffrey Michael Miller. An Air Force junior, he saw a lot of the world but likes to call Colorado Springs, his home. He came to the Academy from Wasson High in Colorado Springs, with a major in football, baseball and girls. His failure to agree with the em- phasis placed on Academics here has pre- vented him from participating in athletics on the Varsity level. He did see action with the Battalion and Company teams though. Jeff provided a needed comic relief for his class- mates, who might otherwise have taken life here too seriously. Hoping to follow in his father ' s footsteps, we are proud to have had him for a classmate. DANIEL MOULTON Danny 14th Company Danny, who hails from Warwick, Rhode Island, began his naval career in high school, when he joined the Naval Reserve. In March, ' 59, he was sent to Bainbridge Preparatory School, and a year later, he entered the Academy here at Annapolis. He has been able to main- tain an average scholastic record while being a versatile company sports participant in Soc- cer, Fieldball and Softball. Danny ' s other in- terests lie in reading, poker, women and " how to make money " schemes. Danny hopes to continue his career as a Navy P3A pilot. With his affable versatility, we are sure that he will be a credit to our Navy. till we float with well-supported accomplishment in the giant pool. CHARLES ROBERT MURPHY Jr. Murph 14th Company Coming to the Academy from Salina, Kansas, he now calls Reno, Nevada, his home. Having no trouble with academics, Murph devoted most of his time to girls, pipes and model trains. His portable model train running along the top of his desk, provided many hours of enjoyment for the whole company. Murph also became one of the mainstays of battalion football and company fieldball. Murph was also active in the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference, The Foreign Relations Club and was the ' 64 " Lucky Bag " representa- tive for the 14th. His winning ways will take Murph a long way in his chosen profession of Navy Line. Most of us take an active interest in intramural sports ARTHUR WILLIAM NELSON III Nels 14th Company Nel ' s mild manner and New England wit were attributes that won him many friends when he arrived at the Academy after graduation from Deerfield Academy. He has done well throughout his four years, in both academics and athletics. Plebe year he was a member of the lacrosse team and since then has helped the company sports teams. His suc- cess in the Bull Dept. is due to his interest in History. His interest in music runs from classical to modern jazz. He could always find time for dragging and will never forget Homecoming, his Youngster year, when he spent as much time marching as dragging. He will be an outstanding addition to the Fleet after graduation. LAWRENCE HAYES OPPENHEIMER Opps 14th Company Larry, a long lean swimmer with a love of social science, came to USNA from the Penn- sylvania steel country. He was outstanding in the more liberal courses, especially govern- ment and economics. His curiosity took many forms as his constantly growing book collec- jld testify to. He took many additional electives and wrote for all three Academy magazines. He brought back from his field rroad enough knowledge of the world situation to become a member of the Debate Team. He must have been very effective with udging by the huge corres- pondc rried on. Larry ' s intelligence and drive will make him a very capable and NILS ALEXANDER SILLIMAN PEARSON Nils 14th Company Nils came to USNA from Newtown, Penn- sylvania, and ever since he arrived his ever present smile could be seen brightening the halls in the 14th Co. area. Being of French ancestry, it was only natural for Nils to join the French Club. Using his experience on the Y.P. Squadron, he was instrumental in developing the French Club Y. P. program. Nils made the most of his four years by maintaining a respectable academic average while contributing to such sports as 150 lb. Crew, Co. 150 lb. football, squash, Softball and cross country. Second Class aviation summer impressed him so much that he decided to join the big migration to Pensacola, after graduation. JOSEPH WILSON PRUEHER Joe 14th Company " Easygoingly conscientious " , would be the best way to describe Joe, if such a combina- tion of words existed. In keeping with his Southern background, he came to USNA from Nashville, Tennessee and enjoyed a gentle- man ' s Plebe year. Just about everything came easily to Joe, from academics to athletics, and seemed to spend most of his time trying to either lose weight for Crew or gain weight to go home. Though relatively infrequent, his exploits with those of the oppo site sex proved him to be a true Southern gentleman. His own personal abilities along with his willing- ness to lend a helping hand, will make Joe a welcome addition to our Navy. I ROBERT EVANS RINKER Bob 14th Company Being a Navy junior, it was hard for Bob to say just where he was from, but it did tend to make him " Navy All the Way " . An academic slash, he found he had plenty of time to participate in extracurricular activities and he devoted much of his time playing a guitar, drums or a bass horn, in every musical group at USNA. He also found time to drag and managed to keep a bevy of girls on the hook, playing the field in fine style. He contributed his all to Plebe fencing and Battalion foot- ball. Bob ' s great goal is to become CNO, but whatever he undertakes, he will make a fine naval officer. RICHARD JAMES ROBBINS Dick 14th Company Picture a friendly " teddy bear, " always smil- ing, always happy and this is Dick Robbins. When not in his natural habitat, " the pad, " one could find him on the Varsity Baseball diamond or the basketball courts. Dick en- tered USNA from Clyde High School, Clyde, Ohio and proceeded to adapt himself to the " system " very quickly. His strong tenor voice gave him the opportunity to serve with pride in the Antiphonal Choir. With a keen and well honed eye for women, Dick made the most of his weekends and summer training, both so- cially and professionally. In fact, he enjoyed Flight Summer so much that he has decided to make naval aviation his future career. LOUIS NORMAN ROBINSON Louie 14th Company Louie, better known to all as " Lord Byron " , comes from Denver, Colorado. Before entering the Academy, he spent his high school years at the New Mexico Military Institute and then went to the University of Colorado for one year. Because of his previous schooling, Louie had little trouble adjusting to life here at the Academy. In sports, his agility was put to good use on the Plebe and Varsity gymnastic teams, during his Fourth and Third Class years. Because of an accident, Louie was unable to participate in sports his last two years here. Louie ' s other interests were in Concert Band, Choir, French Club, Radio Club, writing poetry and girls. In the future, Louie hopes to be a Naval Aviator. ranging from volleyball to soccer, from sailing to football JOE MICHAEL SAUL Joe 14th Company " Who wants to lose? " , can well describe the attitude displayed by Joe throughout his life here at the Academy. Though he was born in Dayton, Ohio, he now calls Sacramento, Cali- fornia, his hometown. Being a Californian, Joe naturally loves the out of doors and was ex- tremely active in sports. His desire to win was best shown on the baseball diamond where Joe became well known for his aggres- sive play. Success should come easily to Joe in either Naval Aviation or the Line. ROGER DAMIEN SWEENEY Rog 14th Company Always working on some new project, Rog found many ways to fill his idle evenings. Once he spied something he desired, nothing, or almost nothing, could stand in his way. Money proved no problem, for Rog had the knack of being able to stay one step ahead of the last bill. This drive for fulfillment placed Rog at the top of his class both aca- demically and athletically. Jumping hurdles or dodging o pposing defensemen came nat- urally to Rog. A Literature major, he could often be found lying side by side with a Steinbeck novel, waiting for summer leave. Mild mannered and not too wordy, his extra ordinary perseverance can only spell success for him, wherever he goes. MICHAEL O ' REILLY TACKNEY Mike 14th Company Mike came to USNA a month after graduating from his Falls Church, Virginia high school. He made friends easily and passed through the rigors of Plebe year with little strain. A good athlete, Mike rowed Plebe lightweight crew and then because of his prodigious feats at the table during Youngster year, he changed to Varsity Track, where he threw the javelin. Academics presented no problem to Mike and he spent much time helping others less fortunate. Even so, he always found time to engage actively in the social amenities of Bancroft Hall. Confident and capable, Mike has never swayed from his original intent to join the Navy Line. ALFRED WILLIAM TATE Yogi 14th Company Always looking at the positive side of things, Bill ' s classmates often accused him of liking USNA and because of this attitude, he was a bear for punishment, hence the tag " Yogi " . His Saturday night traumas somewhat dis- proved this theory, but these traumas were later relieved by his ingenuity in the finer art of brewing. Although stars eluded him, Bill never let his studies pile up due to negli- gence. On the sports field and in academics, his natural ability was ever present. He played as hard as he worked, as can be seen by the fact that he was the toast of the Philadelphia night set, and could often be found at that city ' s more sophisticated part- ies. The Supply Corps will definitely be the better because of this amiable lowian. played with the same passionate spirit which supports varsity activity. LEONARD ROBERT WASS Duck 14th Company A proud native of Chicago, Len came to USNA directly from high school. After spend- ing Plebe year in the caverns of the old Fourth wing, Len found no trouble adapting himself to the life of an upperclassman. Len has the rare ability of being able to find humor in any situation. This trait and his cheerful outlook, even during the " dark ages " , have won him the friendship of everyone. He was a conscientious member of the Glee Club and Choir. Aside from being a source of enjoyment for Len, his extracurricular ac- tivities made the time go by faster until he was with his O.A.O. in Chicago. Len ' s sense of humor and capacity for hard work is going to make him one of the Navy ' s finest officers. WILSON GEOFFREY WEED Jeff 14th Company Jeff, a native of Worthington, Ohio, came to the Academy right out of high school. The regular USNA academic program proved to be a breeze for Jeff and he soon joined the ranks of the overloaders. He also managed to drag weekends and become a regular on the flying squadron. Because of his love for the sea, Jeff found the sailing program an excel- lent pastime, and not only sailed in the New- port and Bermuda races, but also managed to gain a command qualification. With his receding hairline, Jeff became one of those less frequent, barber shop customers. His ambition and loyalty are sure to lead Jeff to an outstanding career in the Nuclear Power Program. CHARLES LEE WILDE Chuck 14th Company After graduating from prep school, Chuck spent a year at Rockhurst College in his hometown of Kansas City. Due to that year in college, his first year at USNA did not offer many obstacles, but after that year, the science profs had their turn at bat. Despite his troubles with the theoretical aspects of electricity, Chuck was active in the Academy ' s amateur radio station. Membership in the " N " club attests to the fact that the Rifle Team benefitted from his services and most of his afternoons, during the winter months, were spent down in the rifle gallery. When not shooting or on the air, Chuck could usually be found curled up with a book or listening to a Broadway show tune. Right now, Chuck thinks that his future career will be beneath the sea. It ' s got only twenty minutes to start raining, not a chance! Mondays, we practice for P-rades to make Wednesday perfection HAROLD MURRAY ANDERSON Hal 15th Company Though he was yet to feel the sting of salt spray upon his brow, Hal brought along with him to the Academy, a fierce desire to make himself an outstanding Naval officer. Life for him here consisted of an endless series of uniform races and he never ceased to amaze his classmates with his speed in making formations. Despite the countless temptations to be found throughout the Yard, he always remained true to his O.A.O. in Detroit. As a member of the Drum and Bugle Corps, he loved to entertain the Brigade with the golden notes of his bugle. Hal hopes to make his future with the Silent Service. ■: . FREDERICK HOWARD BEAUDRY Froggy 15th Company The pride of Canton, Ohio, Froggy was known for his never ending desire to excell in aca- demics. He had little trouble adjusting to Navy life and made many friends here at the Academy. Fred was active in intramural sports, of which Company volleyball and cross country were his favorites. His abilities as a Battalion debater were displayed during Second Class year, when he was a member of the Brigade Champion Debate team. Be- sides being an active debater, he also ac- cepted the dual responsibility of manager and coach on this championship team. The future, no doubt, will find Fred with feet spread wide on the deck of his own " tin can " and wherever he goes, success is sure to follow. CHARLES THEODORE BISWANGER III Ted 15th Company Although the son of an Army officer, Ted de- cided it was Navy for him, and from all indications, he made the right choice. When- ever he is not buried in his steam or skinny book, his mind is somewhere on one of the Academy ' s yachts. His major outside interest is ocean sailing and his favorite pastime is browsing through a book of yacht racing de- cisions to find new situations to protest in the next race. Before the sail, " CTB III " resorted to powered craft, earning his NA in Crew during the Youngster year. Ted ' s peri- odic absentmindedness has made him the object of much ribbing, but he takes it with the best of humor. A dedicated destroyerman, Ted ' s knowledge of the sea will make him a valuable man on any ship. LOTHAR SIEGFRIED BOECK, Jr. Boke 15th Company Boke came to the Naval Academy, a product of the Swiss educational system, with more than two years of submarine duty and a thorough workout at NAPS. Boke spent his summers in Hawaii with his family and comes back each year with many tales about surfing, parties, women and things of that general nature. In the Fall, " Loth " can be found chasing a soccer ball around the field. His athletic abilities have made the back of his B-robe a Navy contrast to Blue and Gold. Navy Air or the submarines seem to mean a future career for Boke after graduation. We rd ion from classes to Bancroft Hall Fut, if they could only see Inside ROBIN BERN CASSELL Robin 15th Company Robin calls Arizona his home, but he has lived in Europe and Japan, as well as many places in the U. S. At the Academy, he par- ticipated in Plebe gym and various intra- mural sports including football, wrestling and track. He took a keen interest in the summer programs offered and spent his Youngster year Summer leave at Fort Benning Jump School and his Second Class summer at Key West attending Scuba School. Certainly his quiet and friendly manner made many lasting friendships for him and his willingness to assist proved that his generosity was far reaching. After graduation, Robin will join the ranks of the " Semper Fi " with aspirations towards either Marine Air or Recon. WILLIAM LEE CHANEY, Jr. Bill 15th Company Bill ' s been known for many things at the Academy, but his southern drawl is his trade- mark. He is always cheerful and ready to try something different. One morning, he even got up with the reveille bell and started singing. He has acquired some unusual dis- tinctions during his time on the Severn. Among them being the " Rip Van Winkle Award " , and the honor of holding the fastest time in scaling the brick wall. His athletic endeavors included Battalion football, swim- ming, fieldball and once in a while some extracurricular liberty. He does well in any- thing he attempts, whether in athletics or studies. With his past performance as a guide, Bill is headed for a rewarding career in the Navy. MARTIN EDWARD COSTELLO Marty 15th Company With a sincerity and an inherent courteous manner, Marty descended on the Academy after a year at San Diego Junior College, in his hometown. His competitive spirit ex- hibited itself in a variety of company sports, such as fieldball and volleyball. Although academic honors managed to escape him, Marty emerged from studies with a firm understanding of the subject. Being the son of a Marine officer, Marty possesses a wide range of knowledge concerning his choice for the future. Certainly, he will be a valuable asset as an officer of the Corps. giant home away from home for all of us . GREGORY VARDON CRANSTON Gremlin 15th Company This amazing lad did everything possible to add hilarity to every study hour without ever sacrificing his star-average. A Nuclear Science major, Greg still had time for the Brigade Activities Committee, time to be the Company " Log " and " Splinter " respresenta- tive, and the talent and drive to thrash all challengers in the 15th ' s Squash set. The Sciences were always Greg ' s strong point and the Bull Department, his continuous adver- sary. Greg hails from California and it was hard for him to keep up with his gals at home because of the miles in between. And somehow, the East Coast lasses just didn ' t seem to measure up. Greg ' s abilities and his desire to be on top, will take him there and keep him there. I . F J v. k. U THOMAS DAVID FLORY Tom 15th Company Tom came to us from just beyond the walls, after a three year sojourn at Severn Prep. Using the talents garnered from countless hours on the local links, he held the number one spot on the Plebe Golf team and lettered in Golf, the remaining three years. In the off- season, the " Redhead " was to be found lend- ing his talents to the company lightweight football team Academics were always tole- rated but were never allowed to interfere with a good nights rest.

His con- genial personality has won for him, countless and lasting friends. where we may study, change into athletic uniform 1 ROBERT THOMAS DENDY Bob 15th Company This Georgia boy came to the Naval Academy after a year in the Fleet and a tour at NAPS. At USNA, his endeavors were chiefly aimed at defending himself from the onslaughts of the academic departments. Bob ' s afternoons were spent engaging in intramural sports where he was a mainstay of the Company 150 lb. football team. Bob ' s evenings were spent writing letters and if time permitted, studying. With his easy going, friendly atti- tude he became one of the best liked men in the company. With his competitive spirit and the determination to win, Bob will be- come a fine officer and a real credit to the service. WILLIAM JESSE FRANKS, Jr. Bill 15th Company " Big Bill " , the pride of Uniontown, Pennsyl- vania, has compiled a record here at the Academy that few men have approached. Abiding by his philosophy of constant self- improvement and work before pleasure, his record speaks for itself. Bill has become known, affectionately, as " the machine " and has always been in the top of the Class, academically. Bill majored in Math and was a member of the Advanced Math Science Seminar and is a sure bet to mark his mark in the Navy ' s Nuclear Fleet. We will always remember the day that Bill wiped out a 1 c section, the day the laundry trap came through, but most of all, Bill will be remem- bered for 100% effort. PHILIP FARR GRASSER Phil 15th Company Phil came to the Academy from the wilds of Wisconsin where he had ample opportunity to pursue his favorite pastime of hunting. He joined the Pistol team, Plebe year and was awarded his first " 64 " . He received another copy of those proud numerals for his efforts as a member of the Brigade Championship 15th Company Volleyball team. With the pos- sible exception of Plebe year, academics never gave him a great deal of trouble. Except for a couple of hitches during Second Class year, his love life ran quite smoothly and he spent much of his spare time writing count- less young lovelies. After graduation, Phil plans on joining the Big, Blue Team as a Navy Liner. ;,:;:: DONALD EDWARD HACKETT, Jr. Hack 15th Company Hack came to USNA from Akron, Ohio and has been very active ever since.

ALAN BREWSTER SMITH Al 16th Company Entering USNA as one of the youngest mem- bers of the Class of ' 64, Al was not hindered in the least by the fast pace or the strange life. He was an exceptional student, with his forte being the Bull Department, he also found time to play. He became an avid dinghy and ocean sailor, and he also ran for his Com- pany and Battalion. During his four years at the Academy, Al had numerous laughs and good times, although sometimes ending up in the reflection pool, on the short end of a practical joke. Jump School was one of his endeavors and was a unique experience in a summer- time revolt against academics. With gradua- tion, Al ' s ambition to be a good Destroyerman will lead him to future successful attainments with the Fleet. awarded for everything from unshined brass to kissing your girl in public.

JOHN HOLLIS TENBROOK John 16th Company John came directly to the Academy from Mil I- ville High School. He was well acquainted with the Academy, having a father in the Ciass of 1922 and an older brother in the Class of 1960. After a close call with academics during Plebe year, he settled down and achieved very respectable grades. John ' s interests in- clude all sports and was a member of the Varsity Wrestling team. His days were bright- ened by the many letters he received from a cute little blonde from back home and he was seen dragging Judy on many weekends. They plan on getting married in June of ' 64, right after graduation. His desire to get ahead will definitely enable him to come out on top in his future career. WILLIAM JOHN TINSTON Jr. Bill 16th Company Bill came to the Academy right after gradua- tion from Brooklyn Tech. Nothing proved to be too much for Bill and he certainly lost little sleep over his problems, in fact, sleeping was one of his favorite pastimes. An enthus- iastic participant in Company sports, Bill was a member of the volleyball and cross country teams. Summer cruise was a highlight of Bill ' s years at the Academy, but we also know that Second Class summer at Pensacola was his favorite. An excellent student who always had good grades, Bill is certain to make a success of his future career in Naval Aviation. but the latter is often worth THOMAS ROBERT TOCZEK Tom 16th Company Tom joined the ranks of the midshipmen here at USNA after spending three years as an en- listed guided missileman. Those three years are also responsible for Tom ' s being a confirmed submariner. Tom is a credit to the Brigade in that he is always working on Battalion business when he can be torn away from his favorite hideaway, the fencing loft. He has enjoyed man y fencing trips to com- pensate for the hard work that he had to put into the sport. Tom always seems to be busier than a beaver but then that must have been a factor governing his obtaining his dolphins. Those dolphins will recall Tom back to the sub service upon graduation. the hours of additional drill. THEODORE WALLACE TRIEBEL Ted 16th Company With the audacity of a Viking warrior, the pro- file of Tecumseh and an ever present wit, Ted entered the Academy to follow in the foot- steps of his father. Plebe year could find Ted either in the wrestling loft or on the lacrosse field, as a standout member of the Plebe teams. Although a knee injury hampered his athletic endeavors, Ted showed his versatil- ity by becoming a Varsity Crew member. Aca- demics never bothered Ted, as weekends could find him charming any of his many female followers. Ted was, in the truest sense of the word, " a ladies man. " Ted ' s determination, drive and constant devotion to his every task, will make him a success wherever he travels in the Navy. LEE VERNON TWYFORD, Jr. Lee 16th Company After spending a year at Bui I is Prep, Lee step- ped through the Academy gates into Plebe year. His drive and determination enabled him to negotiate safely the rigors of the military life here at USNA. Lee ' s athletic prow- ess was evidenced on the Varsity Track team and his academic virtuosity left him ample time to sample the more romantic as- pects of weekends at the Naval Academy. However, Lee never allowed any femme fatale to endanger his coveted bachelorhood. When not sampling the pleasures of feminine com- paionship, he could be found lending his effervescent personality to his duties on the Reception Committee. Lee ' s aspirations in- clude winning his Wings of Gold followed by a career in the Navy Air.

Easily adapting to the life here, he devoted his time and talents to positions on both the Var- sity swimming team and the Antiphonal Choir. Although his easy going academic manner sometmes caused him to come into conflict with the " Skinny " department, his perseverance, late lights and black coffee enabled him to emerge unscathed each time. Terry ' s winning personality and congeniality will insure success wherever he goes. CHRISTOPHER YATES WEMPLE Chris 16th Company Chris came to the Naval Academy after a very short jaunt from the Eastern Shore of Maryland. After a fast Plebe summer and a " guided " change over to military routine, he found the Academy very much to his liking. Academics seemed incidental as stars came quickly to his lapels. Chris also gleaned his share of athletic reknown on the intramural sports field. He could usually be found in the pad, during his free time. But if he was not found there, rest assured he was escorting one of the lovely young ladies of our nation. He tried to date them all, at one time or an- other. It is a good bet that Chris will be as welcome an addition to the service, as he has been here at USNA. CLIFFORD WAYNE WEXLER, Jr. Wex 16th Company After experimenting with a civilian education at Washington State University, where he was a brother in the Sigma Nu fraternity, Wayne decided a change of scene was needed.

He was well liked and respected by all his classmates and displayed much determination and drive throughout his career as a Midshipman. The Navy can look forward to acquiring a fine, hard working officer in Gary Zech. ERIK CONRAD WOODS Rik 16th Company Rik joined the Brigade after a transition from the Marines via the Naval Prep School, but during his time here, he remained a " Marine on Temporary Additional Duty " . It was quickly evident that he had military life and pro- cedures well in control and the academic program was likewise, found dismissable with a minimum of effort. Erik became known for his colorful and independent personality, and on the field of sports, his activities ranged from running to sailing. While at the Acad- emy, he maintained his enthusiasm for the Corps and volunteered for Airborne and Scuba training. With his commissioning, another fighter joins the Marine Corps.

Those who have made it report to the varsity areas for two and a half hours of gruelling prac- tice, aiming always for victory, be it over the next opponent, over Army, or for an Olympic berth. Spirited intramurals, with many of the teams of top caliber, and all striving for honors for company or bat- talion, go on from 1600 to nearly supper, leaving time only for a quick, hot shower. On the Severn, several thousand square yards of sail unfurl to the breeze, while the YP Squadron maneuvers carefully out into the open waters of the Chesapeake. The Masqueraders practice and perfect, the publishing staffs bury themselves behind typewriters and devel- oping tanks, the BAC builds bigger and better floats, WRNV goes on the air. A quick change into Blue Service and off to evening meal forma- tion. After supper, the tempo rarely slackens. Extracurricular activities from Language Clubs to the SCUBA club plan, hold meetings and hear speakers. Stripers clean out their file baskets and hold the day ' s debriefing. A few minutes are spent in relaxation, discussing the latest stereo release or the advantages of going Navy Air vs. Nuclear Power School. Saturday evening, there ' s a mad dash for a movie seat or restaurant space. On weekdays, the congenial groups break up and drift back to waiting books. Study hour has begun. - 5V« r - -iV - " 255 : ' «C2b V ' RICHARD WAYNE ANDREWS Andy 17th Company Andy entered the Academy after two years at Auburn University and quickly became known for his wit and academic abilities.

He was also an active partici- pant in intramural sports and frequented the Superintendent ' s List. For 1 c cruise, he ventured to South America and sailed with the Venezuelan Navy. A good natured and confident person, Bill ' s hopes of a long and successful career in Naval Aviation will surely be fulfilled. WILLIAM THOMAS BENSON 17th Company From Boulder, Colorado and Kansas State University ventured a man who became one of Navy ' s greatest Fencers. Bill showed an immediate love for the sport by working hard to overcome his inexperience and by becom- ing a key man on the team. Weekends usually found him at a Hop, surrounded by his many fair admirers or possibly off on a weekend of skiing in the Maryland mountains. A vali- dator of several subjects, Bill found time to take many extra subjects and to help his classmates who were lagging behind. His in- quisitive mind got him into many discussions which most of us found to be far over our heads. A love for flying has brought a dedi- cated and popular officer into the ranks of Navy Air. • Afternoons afford time for a variety of individual pursuits MARTIN JOEL BLOCK Marty 17th Company Marty came to the Academy under the Fleet quota.

After a brief tour of Plebe football, he concentrated his athletic efforts on the intramural level, where his con- tributions were invaluable. His vivid imagi- nation and tireless repetoire were legendary in the Company and were instrumental in providing us with many a fruitless evening on the books. Regardless of his service selec- tion, his career is bound to be a success. It is the almost end of many long hours THOMAS CHARLES ELSASSER Elk 18th Company Raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Tom attended LaSalle College High School and Drexel Institute before coming to the Acad- emy.

MICHAEL JOHN FOLEY 18th Company Mike came to USNA from the outpost of " Gitmo " , to further his intellectual and ath- letic pursuits. An outstanding athlete in high school and at the Academy, he decided he could best serve in the capacity of head manager of the Navy Eleven and in typical dynamic fashion, installed the Foley dynasty to co-ordinate the team ' s activities. Our hal- lowed halls have enjoyed his probing sense of humor and still he found time to make a more than creditable academic record. Even an extremely uncomfortable Mach four des- cent in a decompression chamber has not deterred his enthusiasm for the Navy Air. With a deep insight and conviction, Mike will command respect and admiration from both his colleagues and subordinates. JOE FULLER GRABLE, Jr. Joe 18th Company After spending a few years at Carnegie Tech, Joe came to USNA to put his Floridian talents to more worthwhile pursuits, and soon joined the world ' s largest fraternity in the comfort- able nest of Mother Bancroft.

Jack ' s future plans are centered on Navy Line where he will be a fine officer and a real credit to the Navy.

He often displays his part Scotch background, being one of the few Midshipmen in the history of the Academy who has attempted to have part of an old toothbrush handle mounted as a stone in his class ring. A chemistry major, Burr is known affectionately by some as the " Prof " . He spends much time in the laboratory and won ' t tell anyone what he does there, but the strong smell of corn mash leaves many of us just a little suspicious. Burr ' s background in aviation should be an invaluable asset to him at Pensacola and his future career as a Naval Aviator. BOBBY JOE HAYNES B. J. 18th Company " B. J. " came to the " hall of ringing bells " after a year at East Tennessee State. He was heckled many times throughout his four years here about his being a " hill billy " , being from Tennessee. But he was no slouch when it came to putting his nose to the grindstone as both his academics and aptitude will at- test. His determination has carried him thru several overload courses and he will graduate with a major in Chemistry. He has his sights set on Nuclear submarines and from the all- out effort he has shown here at USNA, he will make a good showing at Nuclear school and the Silent Service can look forward to having a truly conscientious officer in its ranks. _ . . . _ , .

His main interest in the Varsity aspect of Navy sports lies in Crew, where he was able to put his size and strength to good use. His high scholastic and aptitude standings will take him far in his chosen career in Nuclear Power. These last hours of daylight might best be spent THOMAS ELLIOTT HOWELL Tom 18th Company After spending several years at Military schools in Georgia, Plebe year was not a new experience for Tom, He spent most of his time trying to convince the misguided North- erners who actually won the Civil War. Young- ster year brought forth a new enemy in the form of the Skinny Department. Besides re- fighting the battle of Atlanta, Tom divided his time between sleep and intramural sports. He spent the weekends dragging or playing his Folk music albums, of which there were many. With no definite plans as to the serv- ice, Tom will be a success whatever his choice. . . . sneakers braced against a spray-slick mast CHARLES CRANSTON JETT Charlie 18th Company Midshipman Charles C.

MALCOLM SHERMER KEENEY Rusty 18th Company No stranger to travel, Rusty attended some sixteen schools before his folks settled in Norfolk and he came to USNA. From a Navy family, his intense interest and wide knowl- edge of his chosen profession is outstanding. This was put to good use in his activities on the " Trident " staff and as editor of " Reef Points " A man of many talents, Rusty ' s paint- ing and model building prowess might seem rather incongruous with his performances on the Battalion soccer and rugby teams and on the Varsity 150 lb. football squad. This well- rounded personality and his sincerity will stand him in good stead in his career in the Line of the Navy. GAYLE THOMAS KELLEY Tom 18th Company Tom, the Confederacy ' s gift to the Ensign Factory, came to the banks of the Severn by way of NAPS, the Air Force and Orlando Junior College.

His major interest, besides writing to his girl, were sleep, fieldball, cross country and the service, in that order. If wit, mental ability and a desire for the best are the keys to success, Tom has a ringful. THOMAS AUBURN LONG, Jr. Tom 18th Company From Hayward, California, Tom ' s path to USNA led through Pasadena City College and NAPS. An easy going smile, a 20-100 squint and a slightly receding hairline distinguished him in any group. With his name on the Superintendent ' s List, Tom showed his mas- tery of the Academic Department. Being a natural athlete, he was among the leaders in Physical Education and aimed his abilities toward lacrosse and earned his first N-star as a Youngster.

ANDREW IAN DOUGLASS Andy 20th Company Andy turned down Yale and Princeton to come to USNA and considers that his choice was the best one.

On the weekends, he was faced with the tough decision of dragging some pretty Pennsylvanian or trying to catch up on the sleep lost while burning the mid- night oil. His affability has won him an abundance of friends and his aggressiveness cannot help but benefit both him and the Navy, no matter what his future profession may be. ' GARLAND WADDY GARRETT Waddy 20th Company Waddy graduated from Thomas Jefferson High in Richmond, Virginia, and spent a year at Bui I is Prep in Washington, before arriving at the Academy. The Academic Department has been no great obstacle to Waddy and the Executive Department was also foiled in that Waddy managed to interpret and apply the " Reg book " with amazing success. He has been no stranger to the " List " , but will be remembered more for his quick wit and ready smile. Every leave would find Waddy on 301 heading for Richmond and a certain student teacher with big brown eyes. His career plans are still undecided but wherever he goes, success will go right along with him. JEFFREY WOODS HALLAHAN Jeff 20th Company Jeff spent one year at Columbian Prep before coming to the Naval Academy. Although not a star man, academics never posed a serious threat to Jeff ' s career and the English, His- tory and Government Department proved to be his field of major success. He brought along much sailing experience and ability with him, from Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts and most of his extra time was spent on the Severn. He also picked up the game of Squash after coming to USNA and played on the Plebe squad. A future career in Navy Line seems to be Jeff ' s calling. THOMAS FLETCHER HAWK Fletch 20th Company Tom came to the Academy from Lockport, New York though as a Navy junior, he had called many places his home. He was the second member of his family to graduate from USNA, as his father was of the Class of ' 31. Tom ' s main interests in academics were Oceanography and Math. He enjoyed sailing and was a Varsity Dinghy sailor for four years. Tom also found time to sing with the Glee Club and the Chapel Choir and participate in the Musical Club Show. His outstanding attribute was his sense of humor, which stood him in good stead thru the many different situations he encountered here at the Acad- emy. His future plans tentatively include Nuclear Power School and further postgrad- uate work. have made him special to us all. CHARLES MAPLES HEATH, Jr. Charlie 20th Company Charlie arrived on the shell strewn shores of Crabtown intent on becoming Scottsboro, Ala- bama ' s first Naval hero. Plebe year was not all smooth sailing for Chuck, but he pulled thru, earning his first stripe and his first opportunity to see the real Navy on a " tincan " in the summer of ' 61. Since then, he has shown a preference for long, low, oar pro- pelled craft and has crewed in two successive Brigade championship shells. Chuck ' s inter- ests are varied but he is particularly adept in the field of military sciences. Like many of his conferees from down " yonduh " . Chuck is known for his sly wit and easy going dis- position. Whether he goes subs or destroyers, Charlie is sure to make a fine Naval officer. ROBERT VINCENT HENDERSON, Jr. Bob 20th Company Bob arrived at USNA, starry-eyed and green, as were the rest of us, but with the aid of his sparkling wit and overpowering enthus- iasm, he quickly surmounted those hurdles of adjustment and found his place in the Navy. Those qualities, nurtured with much care in his younger years, made him a very welcome member of the Brigade. His athletic prowess made him a formidable foe in intra- mural competition and his music al talents were witnessed by his participation in various choral groups. Bob seemed the strong and silent type, but when joined by some lovely, young lady, his personality never failed to make him the life of the party. While waging a constant war with the Steam Department, Bob never lost sight of his ultimate goal, which is Navy Air. ARUTHUR FREDERICK HOLZ Art 20th Company To the many of us who knew Art as two eyes peering out from under a blanket of pipe smoke, " Meerschaum " was always ready with a word of advice on a variety of subjects from jazz to photography. Art seldom worried about such trivialities as homework and could usually be found planning the party for the coming weekend, thereby becoming one of the elite few to complete a major in " campus- ology " . Retaining his preference for the night life of St. Louis, he made the best of it in our small town. The rest of his time was apportioned between company sports and entertaining the local beauties. Anticipating a long Navy career, Art ' s personality and adaptability should serve him well. KARL HEINZ KAESER Karl 20th Company Karl was initiated to the life at sea at the tender age of 12, when he moved to Chicago from Germany. After high school, a year of college at Illinois, and a tour of duty at NAPS, he entered USNA and quickly be- came one of the Brigade ' s better known members. Academics never seemed to bother Karl, so his " afternoon nap " was never neg- lected. Weekends were his downfall, and any weekend could find him with a member of the opposite sex in his company. His fondest memories are of those afternoons on the Soccer field, where he continually set scoring records. Because of his determination and obvious ability, Karl will never be forgotten by his classmates and he will always be a source of inspiration to those who serve with him in Naval Aviation. We had a hootenanny, too, and were JAMES MORRIS LATHAM, Jr. Slade 20th Company The pride of Wakefield High in Arlington, Virginia arrived at USNA with enough deter- mination and desire to do well, for any three people. He put out his best, during his Plebe year, and was justly rewarded by appearances on the " List " . On the football field, the Bat- talion and Company teams couldn ' t survive without him, and in the Spring, his specialty was softball. " Slade " picked up his nickname when it became apparent that girls were tougher to handle than the " system " at USNA. With a ready smile and a easy going manner, Slade has always made friends wher- ever he was. We are sure that Navy Air will be happy to see him join their ranks, both in the air and at the " 0 " clubs. IN I televised as a singing, clapping background We were upstaged for once 329 DANIEL CRIM LAVERY Dan 20th Company Dan arrived at USNA via Duke University and being a Navy junior, was able to adapt quite easily to Academy life. Dan was a welcome asset to Varsity Baseball where his batting prowess, demonstrated by hitting over .500 on the Plebe team, was a coach ' s delight. In intramurals, he was the mainstay of the com- pany football and basketball teams. His tal- ents extended into the academic field as his appearance on the " Supt ' s List " indicated. His real academic loves were philosophy and literature. Dan ' s main problem at the Acad- emy, seemed to be finding enough time for his favorite hobby, which was dragging. Sure success as a Naval officer, awaits Dan ' s deter- mination and sincere personality. RICHARD DONALD LEE Dick 20th Company Arriving from his home state of Iowa, where he completed two years at Luther College, Dick quickly adapted to Academy life. After validating Plebe math, Dick went on to get his major in Math. His willingness to help his classmates and his high spirit, quickly won many friends for him. An active athlete on the intramural level, he was a valuable man on the Badminton and Handball teams and an outstanding player on the Company football team. Second Class summer con- vinced Dick that a flying career was his call- ing. It seems likely that Dick will follow the family tradition of a military life in the future. DENNIS CHARLES LYNDON, Jr. Denny 20th Company Being a Navy Junior, Denny knew just what Navy life was going to be like and wanted this life to be his. Although Denny likes to call Kansas his home, he has lived in many places around the world. Gathering his edu- cation in these many places and many long hours at his desk, helped him gain stars at the beginning of Third Class year and he has kept them right along. Like all true sailors, he could be found, whether it was cold or hot, out on Chesapeake Bay. The high point of his sailing career was on the Class A, " Royona " in the Newport Race. After gradu- ation, Denny will probably choose the sub- surface Navy. The future, like the past should show him working hard and doing well at his job. for the Chad Mitchell Trio and others. BERNARD AUGUSTINE MAGUIRE, Jr. Mac 20th Company Mac came to Canoe U. after graduation from St. Joseph ' s Prep in Philadelphia, where he was one of the outstanding members of their Crew team. Here at USNA, Mac went out for Academics which was clearly shown by the stars he wore and the " Supt ' s List " that he was on ever since his Plebe year. His incli- nation towards the pure science and his broad knowledge in Math helped him to rank in the top 100 of the class. With his good sense of humor and excellent taste in girls, he made friends wherever he went and is held in high esteem by his classmates. No matter which branch of the Armed Forces he may go into, Mac is sure to be a success.

JOHN HOWARD PALOMBI John 20th Company During his four year residency on the Severn, John ' s Texas-bred heart longed to trade his cap and spit-shined shoes for a Stetson and a pair of boots. His conservative Navy blue suit didn ' t exactly fit his tastes, but he did manage to decorate it with stars for his academic excellence and the saltiest anchors ever seen at the Academy. His athletic abil- ity served him well from the gridiron to the boxing ring, while his nimble dancing feet gained him posts on the Hop and Ring Dance Committees. With graduation ap- proaching, John ' s cap does somewhat resem- ble a mashed ten-gallon hat and he will soon swap his black shoes for those long-awaited boots — sea boots, of course. 4RTHUR GEDOES PARROTT, Jr. Art 20th Company Art arrived at USNA after a year ' s sojourn -at the University of South Carolina. During his stay at Navy, Art became well known as one of the finest boxers in our class. Other |ath let ic interest included membership on the championship Battalion Gym team. Versatile in academics, as well as athletics, Art always :stood well up in the class, especially in elective courses in his favorite subjects of [literature and philosophy. He also found time for the Crest and Ring Committee and de- signing our Company mugs. His sincerity and warm personality earned for Art the admira- tion and friendship of his classmates. These same qualities are sure to provide the Service with a very fine officer. LEANDER MICHAEL PEMBERTON Mike 20th Company Nicknamed " Spider " or " Stick " , Mike ' s love of the great outdoors and his admiration of the rough-and-ready tamers of the Old West, naturally gave him a love for Country and Western music. Because his interests were varied, he was also an expert on " Black Magic " and the supernatural. During his Third and Second Class years, he served as feature editor for the " Splinter " and was outstanding in Company cross country and squash. Being very devout, he was a member of the Offi- cer ' s Christian Union and the Naval Acad- emy Christian Association, as well as being a teacher in the Baptist Sunday School. Thwarted in his desire to fly by poor eyesight, Mike will serve as an officer of the Line. LARRY LEE ROBINSON Rob 20th Company After graduation from Canton-Lincoln High School in Ohio, Rob entered USNA to learn the ways of the Navy and to play baseball. Baseball and girls were Rob ' s major interest and he excelled at both by playing Varsity and Plebe baseball and by spending the rest of his free time, checking over his list of drags. During the winter months, Rob played basketball. After graduation, Rob ' s plans cen- ter on the Navy Line and maybe Pearl Harbor. Wherever he goes, Rob ' s friendly manner, leadership qualities and adventuresome spirit will surely benefit the Navy. But the evenings are best spent with one ' s girl PETER THOMAS RODRICK Pete 20th Company Hosts of rampaging Plebes and any number of Chinese fire drills, failed to rouse our own " Rip Van " from under his pillow. An ardent devotee of the resting mind and body, Pete occasionally found time for a friendly card game, or for chasing down someone to make a steerage run. The casual observer might assume that our boy would be just squeaking by in his studies, but this was not so. Whether in electronics or weapons, Pete ex- celled in one and all. In fact, his room became a distributing agency for the latest " gouge " and attracted countless knowledge seekers. Intramural cross country, football and Softball helped Pete work off the week- ends and those extra ice cream sandwiches. Pete ' s future will be with Navy Air. DALE ALLAN SCHEMPP Roper 20th Company Roper came to the Academy from the mid- western community of Chagrin Falls, Ohio. With hard work and a good attitude, he soon got the " hang " of Navy life. Being easy going and quiet, he found it a simple task to get along well with most everyone. Since he was an excellent high school athlete, intramural sports became one of his many activities. Baseball, soccer and football were his favor- ites. Academics presented an early problem but was quickly solved and thus he was in the upper half of his class. An avid interest in foreign countries makes Navy Line the choice for his future career. RICHARD HARRY SCHMIDT Schmitty 20th Company After a year of college life at Ohio State and several fraternity parties, Dick realized that his interests were very diverse. The desire to become a Naval officer became his prime objective and with his outstanding qualifi- cations, he had no difficulty in getting his appointment to USNA. His ability to put people at ease and his willingness to do a favor for a friend, ranks him among the high- est. Not being troubled with claustrophobia, Dick intends becoming a submariner and any- one who has the opportunity to work with him will be extremely fortunate. He is the type of person who will succeed in all that he attempts and our best goes along with him. whenever that is possible I ' m sorry, Jane, but I have a lot of studying to do this weekend BRYCE ANDERSON THOMPSON Andy 20th Company To the delight of his friends but not to the delight of his family back home, Andy ' s drawl has greatly diminished by his ex- posure to Northern life, however his quick wit, eagerness to learn and affability were in no manner decreased over the four years. While Andy took part in the academic over- load program, he also indulged in overloading his underslung mattress with a zeal that was hard to match. He also found outlets for his energies on the athletic field where his nat- ural ability combined with a hustling drive, marked him as a fine competitor. As Andy leaves this land of " pleasant living " he takes with him the good wishes of his classmates and the ability to fulfill these wishes. and certainly this is a preferable activity RICHARD PAUL UMFRID III Rich 20th Company The fact that Rich ' s childhood was spent in Cape May, New Jersey, accounts for the fact that he had a very substantial knowledge of the sea when he entered the Academy. Due to his training at Peddie Prep School, Rich easily surmounted the rigors of Plebe year. This trend continued thru the remainder of his sojourn on the Severn and he won a coveted position on the " Supt ' s List " during his Second Class year. Although his first love in sports was basketball, he also found time to play Softball, squash and volleyball. Rich ' s quiet humor and good nature will be sorely missed with his graduation. No matter what field of service he chooses, his driving spirit will carry him to the top. KENNETH MICHAEL VIAFORE Ken 20th Company Ken came to the Academy after a year at the University of Washington. Often the butt of kidding about his excessive study and concern about the system, he has always been well rewarded. Ken has been at the top of his class in both academics and leadership potential since his entry into the Academy. e needs an outlet for hidden talents and Ken found his in athletics. His drive and determination to win have contributed much to Brigade championships in soccer, hand- ball and lacrosse. He also excels in skiing, which he rates as his favorite sport. Never satisfied with anything but the best, Ken should be a future great in whatever career he chooses. OCTAVIO YEPEZ Yep 20th Company Following two years at the Ecuadorian Naval Academy, " Yep " brought a tremendous back- ground in military life, academics and ath- letics, to USNA. He quickly adjusted to his new surroundings and customs and soon be- came a well known member of the Brigade. Due to a series of injuries, he could not play soccer under Glenn Warner, but this did not stymie " The Toe " from being a leading scorer at Hospital Point. The language barrier has not prevented him from maintaining consis- tently good marks. The weekends found " Yep " contacting all those girls in that little black book. Congeniality is the keynote of " Yep ' s " personality and all his many friends here expect to see him the youngest CNO in the Ecuadorian Navy. JACK BENJAMIN ZIMMERMANN Jack 20th Company Jack became a midshipman right after his graduation from Alamo Heights High School in San Antonio, Texas. He had no trouble making new friends and was always spreading his cheer to his classmates. In sports, Jack has been a star standout for the " Mighty Mites " and has participated in Brigade Box- ing. The EH G courses proved to be Jack ' s bread and butter and he has taken a large percentage of all courses that the department has offered. He has made it his policy to try to meet as many young ladies from the North as possible, by spending each weekend with a new lass. After graduation, Jack would pre- fer to enter post graduate school and pursue a career in Naval Intelligence. f to the required evening lecture. ► I Wait ' ll the slides begin and they turn off the lights TWENTY-FIRST COMPANY TWENTY-SECOND COMPANY TWENTY-THIRD COMPANY TWENTY-FOURTH COMPANY EVENING Study hour, the beginning of the end. First comes a quick look at tomorrow ' s schedule and a rapid estimate as to what has to be done well, what can be merely skimmed, and what can be overlooked. Rela- tive quiet descends on Bancroft as we bury ourselves deeper and deeper into the world of bull assignments, skinny labs, slide rules and computer tapes. The silence is broken occasionally by someone asking " Have you figured out problem two yet? " or " You don ' t think we ' ll have a quiz tomorrow, do you? " Once study hour meant card games and dart throwing contests, but those days are gone forever. Saturday evening presents a release from the week, and fullest advantage is taken of every opportunity for fun. The plebes head off to the early movie in the Yard while the upperclass pick up drags for a supper in town. Then, it ' s back to the Hop, Musical Club Show or whatever else is planned for the evening. Some just sit in the drag house and talk and. . . . For some, the press of the coming week leaves no respite and Saturday evening is just like any other. Lights in Bancroft Hall slowly go off, one by one, as weary mid- shipmen call it a day. No matter what day it was, it was a busy day. It started so very many hours ago, and hasn ' t stopped going since. It was like the day before and the day after in many ways, but in at least some ways it distinguished itself. " Sir, you now have one less day until graduation. " MARION ROMAINE ALEXANDER, Jr. Alex 21st Company Alex has a soft spot in his heart for southern belles and North Carolina, but he has room left for his friends and classmates. He gets along well with everyone due to a natural friendly quality and a unique brand of humor. A true sportsman on the athletic field, he ' s always driving himself and never seems to know when he is beaten. From a slow aca- demic start Plebe year, he has become quite a slash in the overload department. Even when pressed for time, he can find the time to aid a classmate in academic trouble. No matter where Alex goes in the Navy, he ' ll always do well for the same reason that he is a great classmate and friend. ROBERT VIGGO ANDERSEN Andy 21st Company Andy was born in Dallas, Texas but later moved to Helena, Montana, This proved to be beneficial for the state of Montana, for during high school he was active in all sports, school politics and the 4-H Club. He had the oppor- tunity to go to several other universities, but elected to come to the Naval Academy. After the usual amount of initial discomfort, he settled down and did well for the rest of his tenure at USNA. Although athletically in- clined, Andy resisted the temptation to go out for sports and stuck with the books. This proved to be a wise decision, for he made the " Supt ' s List " on several occasions. The modern Navy is big and complex with many facets of operation to choose from, but Andy elected to go into the Destroyer Navy. BRIAN COLIN BAUMRUK Brian 21st Company Brian came to the Academy from Thornton High School in Homewood, Illinois, where he won numerous athletic awards. Brian con- tinued his winning ways by becoming Captain of the Plebe Track team and set records in the 600 yard and Mile relay. Brian earned his " N " on the 150 lb. football team during his Youngster Year. Held back by injuries in football and track, his great desire to play kept him on the teams. He also found time to sing in the Glee Club and Catholic Choir and was the Class secretary. Even with all these obligations, Brian was an outstanding student. His competitive spirit and congenial personality will continue to be his stepping stones to a successful future. Evening can be a lonely time, too LAWRENCE GEORGE BERNARD, Jr. Larry 21st Company Larry arrived at Navy after a year at Hunting- ton College. Being a Navy junior, he has lived in many places, but calls Hawaii his favorite " home " . He has a keen interest in sports and has earned two Varsity " N ' s " in Fencing. Not too proficient in academics, Larry decided to take the five year course. In his combat with the various departments, he proved himself to be possessed of an even disposition and an adaptibility to any sort of surroundings or circumstances. His easy going personality and desire to do well, will definitely make him an asset to any brancti of the service, in the future. when fog and snow shroud the yard Beautiful tonight, but let ' s hope it ' s gone by morning ROBERT BRYAN BRADLEY H. Dog 21st Company Born and raised in the midlands of Tenn- essee, Bob brought to the Academy a hardy rebel outlook and zest for life. Plebe year came and went and Bob weathered it with more ease than the rest of us. After the trials and tribulations of Plebe year, the other three years proved to be easy going for him. The football games resulted in the inevitable parties and Bob could usually be found right in the middle of the action. Never serious about one particular girl, he was always avail- able for any one of them. Academics and sports were two fields in which he was always able to do well. Though never on the " Supt ' s List " , he was never more than a few points away. As for his thoughts about a career, there has only been one and that is Navy Air. ROY DONALD BURNS Don 21st Company Having lived in almost every corner of this world, Don had little trouble in getting ac- quainted with our Academy life. With aca- demics out of the way, he made practical use of his spare time. Don and his pad became fast friends very early, and it was a friend- ship that grew with time. Don tried most of the sports offered including cross country, softball and fieldball, but his favorite was soccer and he could usually be counted on to score the important goals. Don plans to go Navy Air after graduation and with his ability and personality, he will be a great asset to this branch of the Navy. MICHAEL COAKLEY PATRICK BURTON Bird 21st Company Coming from nearby Baltimore, Mike entered the Academy after completing a year of col- lege at Loyola. With his zestful initiative and the wholehearted determination, he easily hurdled the barriers of Plebe year. Mike ' s in- tellectual ability lifted him to the heights of success wherever academics were encount- ered. His ability in the classroom was out- done only by his prowess on the athletic field. " Bird " was outstanding on the intra- mural level and excelled in cross country, basketball, softball and football. Mike ' s aff- ability, positive attitude and good humor all point toward success for him in his future endeavors, ro matter which branch of the service he enters. with a mist of white, turning lighted window squares TERRY MARVIN CHAMBERLAIN Terry 21st Company Terry, a native of San Diego, found that his greatest problem at USNA was getting accus- tomed to the climate. Academics posed little problem for Terry throughout his four years, and so he was able to spend much time in pursuit of the finer things of life. It was a rare weekend that Terry was not dragging, in his never-ending search for the " perfect " girl. He has always been an avid sports enthusiast and excelled in handball and squash. Terry was never one to sweat the system, as shown by his charter membership in the flying squadron. His uncanny sense of timing en- ables him to make the most of every oppor- tunity. Terry ' s easy going and friendly manner promises a bright and successful future for him. into vague spreading shapes ARTHUR HUGH COLLIER Art 21st Company Coming from Akron, Ohio Art fulfilled a high school ambition when he entered the Acad- emy. Having no trouble with academics, as the Superintendent ' s List showed, his room was frequently filled with less fortunate per- sons seeking his help. Majoring in electrical physics kept Art ' s schedule full but he still found time to be active in the Italian Club, the Reception Committee and was Company " Lucky Bag " representative. Art stayed slim and trim through such intramural sports as crew, fieldball, cross country and volleyball. His subtle wit and friendly manner con- tributed to his making many friends. Art will surely prove to be an asset to the Navy, regardless of the branch he chooses. KENNETH RODNEY DARGIS Ken 21st Company Ken ' s " honeymoon " was over when he left Niagara Falls to come to the Naval Academy. Having completed a year at Niagara Univers- ity, Ken was never one to sacrifice his pad time for his studies. Definitely not an in- trovert, he was always available to give a classmate a hand whenever it was needed, or to harrass a Plebe, when necessary. Ken never had a lack of ideas or the energy to carry them through, as he was always sharing them with others or using them in his own extra curricular life. If Ken follows in his brother ' s footsteps, he will join the salty ranks of the surface Navy. JOHN HENRY DILLON, Jr. Jack 21st Company Hailing from Silver Springs, Maryland, Jack came to the Academy directly from Bullis High School in Washington, D. C. and joined the class in the middle of Plebe year via the Class of ' 63. His ability to laugh at his misfortunes and his friendly ways, won him many friends and he soon became a part of his new class and company. Athletically, he played on the f ootball and volleyball teams. Jack ' s interest in a service career was soon shown by his summer training programs which included Jump School and Survival School. Through his usual hard work and drive, Jack will be well qualified to enter the Naval Service after graduation. DENNIS LLOYD FARRAR Denny 21st Company Before entering the Academy, Denny attended Will Rogers High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he divided his time between wrestling and studies. His earliest achievement came Plebe Summer when he was the undefeated 143 pound Wrestling champion. This honor was followed by an outstanding season with the Plebe Wrestling team and a second place in the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Championships, his Youngster year. In aca- demics, Denny rivaled his wrestling prowess by being on the " Supt ' s List " all four years. Among his classmates, he was especially noted for his quiet, unassuming ability to make friends. Upon graduation, Denny ' s plans include marriage and a career in submarines. Ik hind which it docs not seem possible On the way to a six point fix ROBERT JOSEPH FEGAN, Jr. Bob 21st Company Leaving his home on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, stopping off for a year at the Uni- versity of Maryland and another year at NAPS, Bob began his four years visit to USNA. Fortunately, academics were no trouble and he treated them as a necessary evil and never let them interfere with his soccer, reading or his one real weakness, members of the opposite sex. As he has at the Acad- emy, Bob will make many friends in the future with his winning personality and dedi- cation and Navy Air will be gaining a fine officer. EARL JOHN GORMAN, Jr. Earl 21st Company Earl came to the Academy via Fenwick High in Chicago and after a year at Drake Uni- versity. He found the courses here at USNA, harder than those in college but with his completely systemitized method of study and a determination to " go in with a 3.0 " , Earl emerged almost unscathed from the Skinny and Steam Departments. Although Earl and the Pad fought a running battle, he emerged often enough to participate in many Battalion and Company sports. There wasn ' t a workout room here at the Academy, that hasn ' t heard the grunts and groans of " The Bear " at work. Because of his tenacity in scholastic endeav- ors and his diversity in sports, we are sure that he will be a success in the future. WILLIAM ALBERT GOTTLIEB Al 21st Company Al came to USNA from Camden, New Jersey, by way of NAPS. His family is originally fr om Virginia and some of this gracious aristocracy rubbed off on Al. This explains his love of opera and classical music and a generally serious attitude toward most of the routine things at USNA. However, all was not serious all of the time and whenever a party was going on, Al could be counted on to make an appearance. After some initial trouble with the academics during Plebe year, Al con- tinuously improved in all areas and spent much of the time flirting with the " Supt ' s List " . Al hopes for a future career in the Silent Service and with his devotion to duty and general affability will surely win him many friends wherever he goes. . that living people exist, study for tomorrow ' s exams FREDERICK SPENCER HALL, Jr. The Swamp Fox 21st Company Having spent a year at the University of South Carolina, where he was a member of the football team, " The Swamp Fox " found Plebe academics to be no problem. While at USNA, the Plebe track team and Company football teams received the benefits of his former sports participation. Throughout his four years here, Spencer maintained a high academic average and still found time to read many novels and sports car magazines. Spencer be- came well known for his staunch defense of the South, his Southern hospitality and fre- quent humorous quips. He is looking forward to Naval Aviation and will surely be a valu- able addition to this team. laugh in companionship, DALE EUGENE HANSON Dale 21st Company Dale, a native of the Gopher State, found his way to USNA after a year in the Fleet and NAPS. Known as one of the " Hanson Broth- ers, " he could always be counted on as a staunch defender of his state. Although Dale gave some of his athletic ability to Company volleyball, the " Ring " was his first love. He lost only one match in four years of Battalion boxing and fought his way to the top of his class in the Brigades. Academically, his ap- pearance on the " Supt ' s List " showed his scholastic ability. On weekends, we could usually find him hard at work with his books. A favorite with all of his classmates, the tough, little redhead never lacked for friends. His easy going manner and humor will assure his success with the Navy Line. GLENN MILBURN HODGE Glenn 21st Company Glenn came to the Naval Academy via the " hills of West Virginny. " The transition from civilian life to the strict conformities and regimentation of life at USNA seemed not to trouble Glenn at all. He took a shine to aca- demics and had a full schedule of electives throughout his three upperclass years that earned him " Supt ' s List " rewards and a major in social science. Glenn showed his proficiency m sports by being a member of the boxing team as well as a variety of Company sports. Being mild mannered and always willing to help, he earned the respect and friendship of all who knew him. His diligence, subtle humor and warm personality assures him a successful career in whatever field he may choose. JAMES EVERETT HOLIAN Grunk 21st Company Deriving his cherished nickname from a car- toon character who despised reveille bells, Grunk found his favorite uniform at Navy to be pajamas. Being a Navy junior, Jim had little trouble getting into the swing of things. He joined the sailing squadron and soon be- came an old salt. He sailed to Europe on the " Eagle " during Youngster cruise, got his Yawl Command later th at year and sailed in the Bermuda Race his Second Class summer. Be- sides sailing, the Grunk was consistently on the " Supt ' s List " and excelled in Company cross country and touch football. Jim ' s heart belongs to Navy Air so he ' ll be putting in some time in Pensacola. Jim has shown ex- cellent officer potential at the Academy and with his easy going personality to smooth over the rough landings, he will do an out- standing job in the future. MICHAEL STANLEY HOLMAN Mike 21st Company Mike arrived at USNA from Franklin Heights High School in Columbus, Ohio. At the Aca- demy he centered his sports interest around wrestling and worked very hard at it. He learn- ed the proper way to spend study hour easier than most of us and his desire to do well is evident by the stars he wore. He is serious minded about everything, including having a good time, and at this, he always does a good job. Mike ' s helpful attitude has won him many friends and will continue to do so after graduation. His next assignment is Pensacola, Florida and his Wings of Gold. I JEFFREY DAVID EDWARD JEFFRIES Chip 21st Company After completion of a year of prep school on Long Island, Jeff arrived at Annapolis to de- vote the major portion of his next four years to the Navy life. He found this life compatible with his own interests on almost every level. Academics proved to be a real challenge which he met head on and improved his stand- ing each year. Jeff excelled in Swimming, Football and Softball and earned his class numerals for his endeavors in each sport. His activities varied from Sunday School teach- ing to water skiing and boating. He has aspira- tions of joining the Corps upon graduation but whatever field he selects, Jeff ' s efforts should meet with much success. PHILIP KENT JONES Phil 21st Company Phil came to the Academy from Delmar, New York where he attended Bethlehem Central High School. Being active in sports and stu- dent affairs in high school, Phil concentrated all his efforts toward going to the Academy. Being interested in sports, he participated in many of them including intramural and Varsity swimming, water polo and handball. His ex- tracurricular activities included being elected Company and Battalion Honor Representative all four years and he spent much time giving instructions in the Honor Concept to the underclassmen. Phil missed Second Class Avi- ation Summer, staying at the Academy on the Plebe summer detail, but he plans to make up the experience lost with a career in Navy Air. MURRAY ARTHUR KAPLAN Kap 21st Company Murray came to the Academy only six days out of high school. As a graduate of Far Rock- away High and Captain of their swimming team, Kap followed his interest by helping the Sixth Battalion capture two Brigade championships in swimming, in addition to rowing Plebe crew and other Company sports. Vowing to make it single for at least three years after graduation, Murray pursued his goal by often receiving as m3ny as eleven let- ters in one day, keeping a locker full of pic- tures and frequent trips to Porter Road. This, along with dragging every weekend, often left his " Skinny " grade up to Tecumseh ' s good graces at final time. Kap hopes for a career in the reliable " tin can " Navy. talk, solve the world ' s problems . . . st around ! RICHARD LEE KEYSER Dick 21st Company Dick came to USNA after compiling an out- standing record at Lewisburg High School. To the consternation of his roomates and friends, he never had to sweat academics and breezed thru his regular subjects and many over- loads, with a minimum of work and maximum grades. Before P-works and exams, he always faced a barrage of questions from confused and bewildered classmates. He almost always had a ready answer to any and all of these queries. Dick was active in the Concert band, Softball, handball and fieldball. When not en- gaged in sports or academics pursuits, he could be found in the pad. With his intelli- gence and ability, Dick is certain to be suc- cessful in whatever career he chooses.

A number of his rhymes and stories have appeared in the " Log " and he also spent a season as a cross country team manager. His main inter- ests are the Navy, literature and family life, though not necessarily in that order. He came to the Academy with a desire to be in the " black shoe " Navy and after graduation, hopes to begin his career with a billet on a des- troyer. JAMES NICHOLAS KRAFT Jack 21st Company Call him Jack or call him Jim, but whatever you call him, he ' ll answer with a grin. There isn ' t much that will get this Minnesotan up- set. He claims there is a wealth of knowledge to be had at Navy and he is trying to learn it all. He ' s taken quite a collection of overloads with a major in Math. Aside from taking over- loads, Jack ' s favorites are the " Supt ' s List " and languages. He likes to spend his few study periods in his pad, contemplating his future. Jack is anxious to get out into the Fleet to apply his learning and his motto. " The best proof of ability is action! What he really wants to do is find out if the Gunnery Officer calculates the muzzle velocity or each gun barrel, every day and if the navigator really gets up early. WILLIAM MICHAEL KURLAK Bill 21st Company Bill, a Navy junior, came to USNA from high school in our 50th state. Although he grad- uated in Hawaii and calls it home, he is origi- nally from Brooklyn, New York. Plebe year, Bill found lightweight crew to be his sport and spent the rest of his Fall and Spring after- noons on the Severn. Though not a slash, aca- demically, he had no major problem with stud- ies. He managed to spend a good many week- ends concentrating on the more pleasant as- pects of Academy life. As far as his career goes, Bill has his sights set on a pair of Navy Wings, but with the Silent Service running a very close second. or tend to anything as prosaic DAVID WINGERT LORENZO Wop 21st Company " Wop " came to USNA by way of St. John ' s High School in Uniontown, Pennsylvania. He brought with him a variety of talents which helped him float thru Academy life in his typical easy going manner. Dave ' s cheerful voice could be heard daily throughout Mother Bancroft as he spun the discs fo r the Radio Station, WRNV. In conflict between study and pleasure, Dave could easily make the choice known as he could successfully learn an en- tire course the night before the final exam. Dave ' s good nature and willingness to lend a hand to all, has won him the admira- tion of all who know him. There is a gleam in his eye for Navy Air, but wherever his path may lead, Dave is a sure bet for success. as the minor repair of a Venetian blind. After turning in the fifth chit, it ' s often easier to do it yourself ALAN EUGENE MAHAR AL 21st Company Upon graduation from high school in ' 57, Al enlisted in the Marine Corps and after a two year tour in Japan and one year at NAPS, he arrived at USNA. Al was active in intramural sports and company caliber. Because of Al ' s background, abilities, attitudes and mature outlook on the things that confronted him, during his tenure here at the Naval Academy, he became and will long remain a leader among many. With these resources within his grasp, Al has quite a career before him in the future Navy Line. NICHOLAS SOTIR MARKOFF Tircho 21st Company Nick came to the USNA from West Mifflin Pennsylvania. At Homestead High School, he compiled an excellent record in sports and academics, being a three letter man in base- ball, basketball and football and was elected to the National Honor Society his senior year. A year at Bui I is Prep helped to enhance his endeavors in both fields. Upon entering Navy, he concentrated his efforts in the sports field with an outstanding impression on the Navy coaching staff early in his Plebe season and became the leading scorer for that year. This earned him the starting position as fullback on the Varsity team, his Youngster year. When Navy shifted to the Platoon sys- tem, Nick became a competitor in the Navy offensive backfield. We are sure that Nick will become a great success in any field of endea- vor in the coming years. ROBERT HAROLD NICHAEL Nikes 21st Company After attending high school in Minersville, Pennsylvania, where he was Captain of the Basketball team and President of the National Honor Society, Bob joined the Naval Reserve and spent a year at Columbia Prep before coming to the Academy. He was especially popular among his classmates for his easy going nature and good sense of humor. His substantial contributions to the Company volleyball and basketball teams were well noted by all who competed against him. His summer leave periods at home were frequent- ly marked by visits from his classmates and these occasions became famous with the Company. Bob has made several plans for his future career, which include the Supply Corps and marriage to his high school sweet- heart. The lighted windows symbolize the dying day HAROLD MUSCHOTT OLSON, Jr. Mush 21st Company " Mush " is a native of Hudson, Ohio where he spent most of his school years. Upon gradua- tion from Hudson High, he decided to make the Navy his future travel agent. Soon after his arrival at USNA, he made the reputation for himself that he could usually be found on the athletic field where the contact was heaviest or in the messhall where he made our chefs happy by the amount of food he was able to eat. With the abilities that he posses- ses and his desire for a life on the sea, Mush should certainly make one of the finest des- troyermen to come out of the Naval Academy. 346 as the onset of night once more JOSEPH CHARLES PLUMB, Jr. Charlie 21st Company Charlie ventured to Navy from the rolling plains of Kansas and brought with him an affable personality and genuine desire to do his best. The usual question was, " Where is he? " This is a capsule story of his four years at USNA for he was constantly on the go, either taking pictures for the " Lucky Bag, " working on the Ring Dance Committee, or at Class Crest Committee meetings. Academics, with a possible exception of Bull, were no problem for Charlie and most of his free time was spent in the pad, or on the athletic field. Tennis and company football held special in- terest for him. Charlie yearns for the Wings of Gold, but regardless of his future service choice, the combination of his personality and determined efforts will mark well his fu- ture success. - - Rl ROBERT PERCY SENECAL II Percy 21st Company The greatest " Snore King " of all time is this tall, intellectual master of academics. A four year " slash " in Phys. Ed. and Science, he will be forever remembered as the boxer who lost without ever being hit. His resemblance to " Smoky the Bear " has often been noticed and the many fires in our shower testify to his pyromaniac tendency and will, no doubt, bring much joy to any oiler or ammunition ship he should serve on. Drinking is Bob ' s " outside- inside " sport and as long as the drinks are cheaper in the Navy and duty exists in Cali- fornia, Percy will guard those who love by night and don ' t live in the East. JAMES ROBERT SHOFF Bob 21st Company Bob emigrated from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to USNA via Oklahoma University where he had studied Geology for a year. Finding Plebe academics easy, during Youngster year he instituted a program of max dragging and min weekend study that he has followed and lived by ever since. It wasn ' t until the middle of Second Class year that Bob learned they really did serve chow in the messhall on the weekends. A hard competitor, Bob spent his Fall playing fullback on the Battalion foot- ball team and his Spring, running in the Triathalon. During Second Class summer he went to Airborne School in Georgia and won his Jump Wings. Bob likes the Navy and thinks it offers a great career, but he likes the Marine Corps, just a little bit better. PHILLIP ROBERT SLOUGH Phil 21st Company Phil proudly claims Miami, Florida as his home. Prior to his arrival at USNA, he spent two fun filled years at the University of Florida. Even with the misconception that all Floridians are part Yankee, he is a staunch Rebel. His thoughts often drifted South, es- pecially during our long winter nights. He enjoyed an eventful four years at the Acad- emy and made many friends. His closer friends have nicknamed him, " Lucky " . Phil ' s interests have always strayed towards the air. He is an avid parachutist and spent most of his leave following this interest. Even though he enjoys jumping and flying with out a plane, he is convinced that being a pilot is his life. Phil is looking forward to an exciting and eventful career in Navy Air. jMHOk n brings sleep to claim us from our studies. DEAN ALAN STIEMKE Dean 21st Company After compiling an outstanding record at Nathan Hall High School in West Al I is. Wis- consin, where he was Valedictorian as well as a letterman on the basketball team. Dean found the Academy much to his liking.

With his keen wit and friendly nature, Dean quickly proved to be one of the most popular members of his class. In his spare moments, he could usually be found with a current novel and his varied record collection. After graduation, this highly talented individual can be assured of success in any field he may choose. Some nights end a little earlier than planned RAYMOND EDWARD STONE Ray 21st Company Ray showed his early potential by being an athletic standout and Vice President in his Warwick, Rhode Island, high school class. He proved his versatility here at the Academy by being a constant member of the " Supt ' s List " and was frequently asked to help both under- class and his own classmates with their aca- demic problems. Feeling at home on any ath- letic field, he proved to be a valuable asset to Battalion football, Company fieldball and soft- ball teams. During leave periods, Ray found much relaxation and enjoyment in the out- doors by hunting and fishing. Headed towards Navy Line, Ray ' s sincerity, friendliness and desire to succeed will make him an excellent officer and a ve ' come addition to any ward- room. ROGER ELLIOTT VAN DUZER Rog 21st Company The transition from cowboy to sailor has been a rough one for Rog. Many times in the last four years, Rog has told the story of the " Old West " and " how it really was out there. " Yet for all his tall tales, Rog still plans to go down to the sea in search of adventure. If Rog can have his way, he ' ll be known as the only Captain in the Navy whose ship is his horse. This Dutch cowboy-sailor has the per- sonality, affability and willingness to make everyone his friend. His high class standing would be even higher if Rog were not so constantly involved in the pursuit of the pleasures of life such as sports, beverages and women. In the last category, Rog has often found himself in impossible situations. A scholar, cartoonist and faithful friend, Rog and his pipes will go far in the Fleet. GERALD WARNER WEBER Jerry 21st Company Jerry came to the Academy via Washington High School and Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota and NAPS.

BRUCE KENNETH WOOD Woody 21st Company Upon the completion of his years at Searles High School in Great Barrington, Massachu- setts, Woody enlisted in the Navy and at- tended the Naval Academy Prep School in Bainbridge, Maryland. A good natured and fun loving person, Bruce was filled with an enthusiasm and desire that seemed to rub off on all who were associated with him. In sports, he spent most of his afternoons par- ticipating in soccer, fieldball and squash. His other interests included the Brigade Activi- ties Committee and the Company Pistol team. As for service selection, Bruce has his eye on Navy Air, but will probably try his hand at the surface Navy first. Regardless of his selection, he will be an effective officer in whatever branch of the Navy he enters. Others not till hours later JAMES SCHILLING BAUMSTARK Jim 22nd Company Winnetka, Illinois sent Jim to the Naval Academy with stars in his eyes. With his famous grin and a " cheery aye-aye, " " Oakes " breezed right thru Plebe year. An industrious student, he never had any academic prob- lems and on occasion could be found on the " Supt ' s List. " Jim never let his studies inter- fere with his favorite activities of dragging and working on the " Log. " A fine swimmer, he was a member of the Plebe team and later swam for the Battalion. In the Spring, Jim made his way to the Company Softball fields. Jim ' s winning personality and spirited determina- tion will undoubtedly reserve for him a high place in our future Navy. RONALD JAMES BOSKEN Ron 22nd Company Ron entered IJSNA after graduating from Cin- cinnati ' s St. Xavier High School and pursuing a Political Science major at Xavier University. lis background earned for Ron the titles of " the old man " and " professional student " . With his liberal arts interest and background, there was no love lost on the scientific aspect of the curriculum and as a result he suffered some close calls with academics. Ron ' s spare time found him in the fieldhouse or engaged m a variety of other sports. A proficient skier, much of Ron ' s winter time was spent on the slopes. Because of his likeable personality and determined spirit, there is no doubt that Ron will be a great success in the Fleet. BRUCE ROBERT BOWMAN Bo 22nd Company Swimming, subs and sleep, in that order, have been the nucleus of Bruce ' s life here on the Severn. Although the adjustment to USNA life during Plebe year wasn ' t Bruce ' s most outstanding accomplishment, he earned a spot on the Plebe swim team and two NA ' s on the Varsity Squad. Youngstown. Ohio claims Bruce as its most distinguished contribution to the Naval Academy. The atomic powered subs will be his home away from home during the first 30 years of what we know will be a long and distinguished Naval career. We know that Bruce will be a dedicated and well moti- vated Naval Officer. HAVEL DUANE BRICKER Duane 22nd Company Duane Bricker was born and raised in a small town in Michigan and upon graduation from high school, he entered the Navy. He came to USNA via the Naval Academy Prep School where he first met many of his classmates. He has since made many more friends and he will, without a doubt, continue to do so in the future.

While spending four years here on the Severn, he was active in Company sports and was a great enthusiast of Company cross country. He is remembered for being the center of quite a few class parties as he always enjoyed him- self to the fullest and yet he was always a studious person when it was necessary. His future will see him high in the clouds in Naval Aviation and we are sure the Fleet will be receiving a fine officer and a dedicated man. MARCUS BENTON CALHOUN, Jr. Marc 22nd Company Above all, Marc is a Christian gentleman, with a great deal of personal integrity, con- sideration for others and depth of character, which has made him a successful and pop- ular midshipman. This Georgia boy has a friendly easy going manner and accepts the " system " with a grain of salt, but this casual- ness is left on the sidelines in any competi- tion. All of Marc ' s opponents will attest to his bull-dog determination and overwhelming will to win, whether as a mainstay in Com- pany football or as a top notch Varsity golfer. Academically, Marc leans towards the liberal arts and this interest carries over into his avid reading and active church work. As he joins the Fleet, his sincere interest in others will stand him in good stead as a leader of men. DAVID WALLER CHENAULT II Dave 22nd Company Dave ' s introduction to Academy Blue Gold and his introduction to the world occurred at the same moment, for he was born at the Academy Hospital in 1943, while his father was attending post graduate school. A typical Navy junior, Dave can ' t count the homes he has lived in on two hands, but his tales of " Navy Juniors On The Prowl " , lead you to believe his " growing up years " were anything but routine. His adjustment to Academy life proved to be no problem and his easy going attitude has always been a fine example for his classmates. Afternoon in Spring and Fall have meant football, first as a Plebe and then as a Varsity manager. Football didn ' t inter- fere with academics for thru the years, he has always been up around " Supt ' s List " average. Graduation means destroyers for Dave, for he has never really considered anything else. when the textbook refuses to make sense. WILMOT FRED CLARKE Bill 22nd Company Coming out of the Navy from NAPS, after two years at the University of Kansas, Bill proceeded to take on his tasks at USNA with a vigor and ability that was typical of his four years here. Always on the Superinten- dent ' s List and never without stars, Bill has stood high in his class, as well as in the esteem of his classmates since joining us. He was known as the ' dirty old man " of the company because of his balding head and his age But this never kept him from enjoy- ing himself at parties or sports contests. A " never-say-die " personality, Bill is sure to be a credit to the Fleet and the service in the future. 41 GEOFFREY ARMSTRONG CLOUGH Jeff 22nd Company Coming to the Academy right out of high school in Cranston, Rhode Island, Jeff quickly settled into the life at Navy. With a ready smile and a friendly word, he quickly made many close friends. He was always ready for a good time and never had to be prodded into a party. Never one to lose any sleep over academics, he managed to keep good grades and was always ready to help anyone who needed it. His interests were many and varied but any afternoon during the Fall and Winter, he could be found at the Natatorium per- forming his duties as Varsity Swimming Man- ager. With an inquisitive mind, he usually had something apart to see how it ran and this could be a car or a hi-fi. Jeff will, undoubt- edly, be a success in his chosen field of Navy Line. JOHN FREDERICK DE PEW Jay 22nd Company A lad from the " Sunshine State " , Jay entered the Academy by way of the Naval Reserve and his presence at USNA had a lasting effect on those around him. " Don ' t be last into the water " was Jay ' s philosophy as he was always the first to try something new. If it did not turn out to his liking, he wouldn ' t get flustered but would go merrily on his way. Jay ' s personality and wit turned many a dull afternoon into an enjoyable occasion and his great sense of humor made him popular among his own class and the entire Brigade. In athletics, he was an able and willing com- petitor and in many instances, he gave that little extra that meant a win. In the future, Jay hopes to become a member of the Silent Service.

Being a Navy junior, he quickly adapted to the system and completed Plebe year with a minimum of trouble. Youngster year, he became famous, or rather infamous, as the leader of the " moon alley gang " on the fourth deck of the eighth wing. Terry had little trouble with the acad emics and coasted thru, devoting most of his time to more amorous adventures. Those weekends that he wasn ' t dragging were usually spent finding new drags for future weekends. Terry will al- ways be remembered for his mischievious smile and winning personality, which coupled with the strong competitive spirit shown on the athletic field will make him a wel- come member of any ship or squadron. a popular novel or magazine ■ When a seven N day faces you tomorrow, there ' s no sense even trying to Beat Navy JEROME EMANUEL EGGERS Jay 22nd Company Jay Eggers is a highly competent man who never tails to set and meet high standards of personal achievement.

He brought to Navy his friendly personality which made him a wel- comed part of any group. When he was missing from the scene of activity, he could usually be found working out in the horizontal. Ed ' s greatest enemy at USNA was the Skinny Department with whom he fought a deter- mined battle. This determination of spirit carried over to the Company fieldball and cross country teams and in the ' 62 Newport to Bermuda Race when he sailed for Navy. Ed ' s sense of humor, consideration, and sin- cerity will insure his future success. DAVID LEE FLENTIE Dave 22nd Company Dave came to the Academy straight from Sabetha High School in Kansas. The Sabetha to Annapolis change was a big one for him, yet his easy going nature and his " can ' t sweat the small stuff " attitude, helped him make this change, safely. Studies were no problem to him, that is when he did study. However, his many other interests kept him well occupied. There is that c ertain girl, who kept him well supplied with mail and " Care " packages. During his Second Class year, play- ing football put him in the hospital for a period of " sixty dollars " , in income tax return money.

Due to his love for hard work and drive to succeed, he will be a fine addition to the Naval Service. from the rigors of nightly study. ALBERT SIDNEY GASTON Gator 22nd Company Coming from a high school in the suburbs of Mobile, Alabama, " Gator " brought with him an academic prowess and an intense dislike for the cold. Because of his ingratiating per- sonality, Al was constantly involved in ex- plaining the academics to others, who did not readily understand them. Always possess- ing a high competitive spirit, Al could be found almost any afternoon on the Soccer field, the Football field or the Squash or Tennis Courts. In times of inclement weather, however, he was not adverse to spending the afternoon on the " blue tramp " . No matter what he chooses as a field of endeavor, Al ' s personality and ability will surely mean suc- cess for him. - a for j 11 ttm MARIO GEORGE GERHARDT M. G. 22nd Company Mario arrived at the Academy after spending just a few short years in this country but his friendly attitude and willingness for hard work, made it easy for him to fit into Academy life. Sports occupied most of Mario ' s time and he was always willing to show someone how to kick a soccer ball or football. Studies never bothered him very much and the Fall and Spring seasons would find him hard at work with the Varsity Soccer team. His leisure time was spent helping someone with their German or dreaming of skiing, as he used to in Austria. Whatever service he may choose, Mario can only meet with success and good fortune. DAVID WESLEY GOULD Dave 22nd Company A staunch Marine Corps defender, Dave came to the Academy via Sullivan Prep, with one goal in mind and that was to join the " Guts " and Glory " branch of the service as a Marine pilot. While still in high school, he helped his father bilge a Weapons Correspondence Course. He rectified this failure during Sec- ond Class summer, on the Plebe indoctri- nation detail, when he was constantly with " his boys " on the field or in the hall and all this in spite of the cast on his leg due to a lacrosse injury. He gained the nickname " Navy " through his frequent comments about the Academy and the Navy in general. Other than the D B, his interests were sports cars and girls, unfortunately confusing these two to the extent that his pin was notoriously well-traveled. He was the Company artist and his best known work was the insignia for the Task Group Whiskey. JUDD SCOTT HARMON Scott 22nd Company Scott was born in Brigham City, Utah and after several moves to several different places in the nation, the family settled long enough for him to graduate from high school in Logan, Utah.

Math was his major academic fare and provided the major portion of his overloads. Having never seen salt water before reaching the banks of the Severn, Jim became more ac- quainted with it by Ocean Sailing, Plebe year. Cross country and football were his intra- mural sports. After taking a strain on the system, Plebe year, Jim " relaxed " durin g his upperciass years. Jim is bound to be a suc- cess in any endeavor he undertakes.

THOMAS JAMES HOLDEN Tom 22nd Company Tom came to USNA from Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey via Bui I is Prep after a very suc- cessful career as an athlete at St. Mary ' s High School. He had two immediate aims at Navy. They were to keep off the " unsat list " and to get on the Varsity Football team. The fight against Sampson Hall proved to be most difficult and the addition of " terminal bal- listics " by the Weapons Department, helped to cramp his style somewhat. Tom overcame these obstacles the way we all did, with sweat and " No-Doz. " His determination and hard work, coupled with his ability to have a good time, will make Tom a welcome addition to the Fleet in the future. our spirit asserts itself WILLIAM CLAY HOLMES Bill 22nd Company Bill, an " Okie " from the word go, came to USNA straight from high school, where he graduated Valedictorian and was a member of the National Honor Society. His ability to think out everything in his slow, easy going manner made him a Slash in almost every- thing. Trying not to let books take up all of his time, he managed to make it into town every Saturday afternoon. " Willy " has an air about him that makes him a good man to have on one ' s team. This, along with his ability to do a job and do it right, and his subtle drive to get ahead, will make him a valuable asset to our Navy for the next thirty years. and we give parties, decorate offices BARRY WAYNE HOOPER Hoops 22nd Company A native of California, Barry entered the Academy via NAPS and has entertained his classmates and the Brigade with his physical and mental contortions ever since then. Famous Plebe year for his interpretations of historical facts, Barry, then as now, had very little difficulty finding loopholes in the " sys- tem " . However, too often, the Executive De- partment stepped in to close those loopholes. Academics frequently proved difficult with Bull predominately red on his grade chart. During his four years as a midshipman, Hoops developed into an adept gymnast and he astounded his fellows by putting this ability to use beneath the Limbo bar. Destined to become a Naval Aviator, Barry will definitely enliven any wardroom in which he takes his seat. KENNETH DUKE JAMES 22nd Company Duke came to the Academy from Crab Orch- ard, West Virginia via Columbian Prep. In his desire to avoid the unsavory aspects of Plebe year, Duke managed to obtain a seat on three different training tables and he won numerals in football, wrestling and baseball in the pro- cess. No academic slash, he had little trouble in the courses offered at Canoe U., with the exception of two semesters in Plebe Skinny. Duke ' s free time was spent either in the pad or dragging one of the many girls he had listed m his address book. His popularity was not due to his athletic prowess nor his way with the women, but to his quick wit. Many if was made considerably s and stories. Duke ' s plans after graduation include the . Corps and a pretty mountain girl for a Aife. ROY WILSHER JONES II 22nd Company Roy came to the Academy from Bellevue High School in Bellevue, Nebraska where he was one of the mainstays of their State foot- ball powerhouse. He also competed as one of the school ' s top alpine skiers during the winter months. With a Naval Career as his ultimate goal, he has studied hard and is a regular member of the " Supt ' s List. " Not completely " dedicated " to the books, he still finds ample time for his " second love " — sports. His hearty enthusiasm and athletic prowess was a valuable asset to the Com- pany ' s sports squads. Combine academic pro- ficiency and a congenial outlook on life and you have the attributes Roy carries into the Nuclear Power program. HENRY JOHN JURGENS, Jr. Hank 22nd Company Hank came to the Naval Academy by way of the Naval Academy Prep School. Prior to attending NAPS, Hank spent one year at the University of Connecticut before deciding that the Navy was the life for him. With an easy going personality, Hank rapidly became an avid listener to the woes of his fellow classmates. Only through perseverance and constant out-guessing did he beat the Academ- ic Departments. Hank ' s main interests lie in the literature field and hence he could often be found in the magazine library. His past experience, maturity and personable dispo- sition guarantee him a successful career in the Navy. MORRIS MICHAEL KEMPLE, Jr. Morry 22nd Company Having been born in the Midwest, Morry and family moved to New Jersey where he grad- uated from Lakeland Regional High School, at the top of his class. After receiving offers from other schools, " Kemps " elected to come to the Academy. During his stay here, Morry has found the time in his schedule to be a perennial star wearer. The majority of his time, however, was spent dragging, sleeping, at the bridge table or on the athletic field, where he liked and played all sports. Another hobby of Morry ' s was music and learning the latest dance steps. Because of his pleasure- able companionship and keen mental ability, Morry will be a valuable contribution to any ship or squadron to which he may be as- signed throughout his service career. EDWARD FRANCIS KING Ed 22nd Company Ed spent four successful years at Boston Latin School and a year at Northeastern University in Boston, where he was captain of the bas- ketball team. Soon after becoming a mid- shipman he discovered that he didn ' t have time for varsity sports, studies and bridge, so he confined his athletic endeavors to intramurals. There he gained the nickname of " All-Brigade " for his outstanding play with the heavy weight football team. Although Ed often had problems of his own, he was always willing to lend a hand to anyone who needed it and never lost his sense of humor. In his spare time, Ed could be found dragging or playing bridge. His friendly manner and good nature will make him a great success in his service career. PHILIP DAVIS LANK Flip 22nd Company Claiming the Naval Academy as his place of birth, only fate would have him return seven- teen years later to follow in his father ' s footsteps. Though he had traveled the world over as a Navy junior, his b-robe attested to the fact that the " stars and bars " was his predominant love. Never worrying about the program or the dire consequences of insuf- ficient preparation, Phil ' s academics always took last place to the O.A.O., ocean sailing, company sports, his rack and liberty. Phil ' s main ambition, with the Destroyer Navy as his goal, is to transfer the command at sea badge so prominently displayed on his b-robe, to the left pocket of his blue service. and rooms and think about home. :, m i Prw is soft ,» 1 , 6ecaw ■ PAUL ANDREW MALLAS Paul 22nd Company Paul came to the Naval Academy from Wood- bridge High School, with a long record of successes in Track and Football. Any after- noon of the week you could find him working to improve his previous records. A fierce determination and perseverance at academ- ics complemented his athletic ability, though he never quite mastered the books as he did the javelin. He was a rugged competitor, but always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed same. His ability on the dance floor combined with the many friends he made on cruise, should stand him in good stead in any company. With his sights set on Navy Air and his hard work and determina- tion, he is sure to succeed and become a valuable officer to the future Navy. FRANK KELLY McCUTCHEN, Jr. Kutch 22nd Company Kelly came to USNA from Dalton High School in Georgia where he was a scat back on the football team. His football prowess was in- valuable to the Company 150 lb. team where he was famous for giving a leg and taking it away. " Kutch ' was also a mainstay of the 22nd ' s Softball keystone combination. Aca- demics gave him little trouble, with his biggest problem being his trying to teach people to do it his way. He could always be found at Company activities instructing people on proper diction of a southern gentleman. Even with his busy schedule, between trips to the blue trampoline, he found the time to make many friends through- out the Brigade. Kelly ' s personality made him a welcome member of any group here at USNA and will also do so in the future. KENNETH BENTON MIDDLETON, Jr. K. B. 22nd Company Coming from an Army fam ily, this tall, lanky Texan took advantage of the family rivalry to clean his father out in the succeeding Army games. During Plebe year, when he was not busy satisfying the whims of the southern upperclassmen, Ken was entertaining the Bri- gade as a member of the D B and NA 10. Well known for his basketball prowess, he pursued his athletics with a diligence as he did his books. Since he is fickle by nature, young ladies came and went, with rarely more than a picture to attest to their having been here. Ken was one of the more awe- some members of the notorious Task Group Whiskey, and his presence greatly enlivened football parties and weekends. Provided he can squeeze his frame into a cockpit, " K.B. " foresees a career in Naval Aviation. LORIE ALBERT MOORE Lorie 22nd Company Lorie showed up at USNA with a golf bag on one arm and a stack of pictures of Miss Rheingold under the other. And these two things were indicative of Lorie ' s interests throughout his stay here. When he wasn ' t serving as an unofficial judge of a beauty contest, you could find him out on the links. It was nip and tuck for Lorie, Plebe year, with the academic department, but Youngster year, he began to shine as a scholar and he ' s been a regular fixture on the Superintendent ' s List, ever since. Lorie ' s academic and schol- arly abilities, combined with a friendly, out- going personality, will guarantee him success in whatever branch of the service he chooses. Suddenly, the holidays grow closer. GLENN ERIC SHINDLER Glenn 22nd Company Glenn came to the Academy right out of high school in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. After a year of experience in the Naval Air Reserve, while still i n high school, the rigors of Plebe year never seemed to get him down for long. Never one to sweat academics, and always an avid photographer, he spent perhaps a little too much time in the darkroom and not enough in the study room. Somehow, he managed to evade the Academic Board and would vow to study harder — the next time. Meanwhile, he derived a great deal of satis- faction doing photo work for both the " Log " and the ' 64 " Lucky Bag " . Despite experiences in the Air Reserve, he seems bound for a career on the high seas as a destroyerman. Our excitment, like that of a small boys . . . Yea Christmas! And for the major, a triple concertina, two hand grenades, and a shiny silver oak leaf GORDON LEE SMITH Gordie 22nd Company His life here at the Academy has been four years of fun and frolic, unhampered by aca- demics. If a major were given in bridge, Gordie would have been a star man. The Company parties would have been a loss without his quick wit and cheery smile. From Utica, Ohio, Gordie was a star performer on the 22nd Company teams. As a flashy half- back, he was noted for his fair play and sportsmanship. Having sailed to the Carib- bean during Youngster cruise and having en- joyed liberty in the ports of Europe as a First Classman, Gordie plans to make a place for himself in the Navy of the future. No matter what line he may pursue, everyone agrees that Gordie will surely make his presence known. ALLAN PETER STRUCK Alphonzo 22nd Company For an avid outdoorsman, the sea would naturally offer its lure, so all the way from Sebeka, Minnesota, " Alphonzo " came to conquer the sea and Annapolis. A year spent at Mankato State before entering USNA gave him a good background in academics and helped him to become Superintendent ' s List material. Al believed in making the most of his time and so could usually be found either behind his desk or out on the athletic field, or just leisurely reading something on his own. A true football fan, the only thing that kept him off the Field was his proneness to injury. Navy Air or the Silent Service? As yet he is undecided but a dedicated man, as Al is, will be of benefit to any service. mounts to the imitation of Santa Clans HUBERT HARRIS WRIGHT IV Hugh 22nd Company After three years at Cambridge High and one at Bull is, Hugh decided to give Navy a try. The books tried to claim his extra time, but his friends are quick to acclaim his easy decision of not " sweating " the system. He had the ability to make every situation seem funny even when things seemed at their worst. Hugh was Captain of the high school Track team and swam in two events for Bull is. The experience he gained from high school was applied to Navy cross country and Battalion swimming. He was a consistent winner in both sports. Plebe year, Hugh captained the sailing team and later he switched to ocean racing and made the ' 62 Bermuda Race on the " Royono " . During Sec- ond Class summer his interest grew in tennis. Hugh ' s sharp mind and fluent conversational ability will make him a sure success after graduation. and the giving of funny gifts. ALFRED WILLIAM ARCHIBALD Arch 23rd Company Arch made the journey to Navy ' s " Boys Town " from Sarasota, Florida with a good deal of background time spent in the Canal Zone. After a very ample high school education, little time was needed to be able to excel at such things as stars, with the consequence that many a study hour was spent just tinker- ing around on something that either worked or didn ' t work. However, set Arch down in front of a complicated problem or a scientific theorv in need of investieation, and all that would be visible was his smoke. With his natural ability and technical knowledge, it would be a good bet that Arch will have no trouble in achievements, advancements or general excellence, no matter what portion of the world he should serve with the future Navy. RODNEY REID BADGER Reid 23rd Company Reid entered the Academy after attending high schools in California and Virgi nia, where he participated in football, basketball and tennis. Limiting himself to one sport at USNA, " Badge " made the Varsity Tennis team as a Sophomore. Off the courts, Reid is a true romantic and love and music are his major interests. He drags every possible weekend, plavs several musical instruments and is an avid fan of modern Jazz. Reid is predisposed toward a Naval career, his father being a Captain in the Navy and an Academy graduate. His quick wit and fine personality will be definite assets to him in his plan! for a career in Navy Air. MICHAEL HITCHCOCK BALLARD Mike 23rd Company Mike came to the Academy well acquainted with the wavs of the military, after spending a year at Admiral Farragut Academy. It is appropriate that he chose a naval career for he calls both Long Island and Block Island his home, and his early love for the sea would encourage his being with it as much as possible. He accomplished this thru racing the exciting " Luder " Yawls while his dream of participating in the famous Bermuda Race was realized during his Academy days. Any- one could stop in at Mike ' s room for a friendly chat or deep discussion on anything at any time. Having an awareness of world affairs, he not only had a workable knowledge of Wall Street economics but a firm under- standing of the international situation, as well. With his statesman like qualities and love for the sea, he will be an excellent Line officer. BARRY VINCENT BANKS Barry 23rd Company Being a Navy junior, Barry can ' t call any one place his home, but the many years of happy memories in such places as Utah and Ger- many did much to help prepare him for his experiences and life here at USNA. It seems a shame that Barry has yet to visit the North Pole and thereby have some reasonable ex- cuse for being called " Penguin " , other than the obvious physical resemblance. But what Barry lacked in height, he certainly made up for in breadth and determination, hence his long tenure as starting defensive end on the " Mighty Mites " . Although studies, at times, were responsible for many hours and much effort, his success proves that Barry can and always will be counted on when a job needs to be done. Mirrored in the brilliant colors T ' is the season to be jolly, books and study are pure folly. BARRY NATHAN BECK Barry 23rd Company As the son of a Marine Corps officer, Barry has called many places his home and having lived in so many different places is probably the reason why he has liked the military service and loves to travel. His interests here have centered around sports and the English, History and Government Department. Barry is a fine runner and was a member of the Plebe cross country team. Since then he has been a member of most all of the Company and Battalion sports teams. Barry will graduate with a major in History which is exemplary of the extra effort he always put into his work. All of the many friends that Barry has made here are sure that the Marine Corps will acquire a fine and capable officer when he receives his commission as a 2nd Lt. at graduation. NEALE LEE ROY BEIGHTOL Beetle 23rd Company Neale was raised in Winburne, Pennsylvania and attended Penn State University for a year before entering the Navy. After two years in the Navy, he received his appointment to the Academy. He has devoted his sports ability to our intramural program and his favorite sport was Battalion football. He has contributed greatly to the activities and spirit of the Brigade by devoting a lot of time and effort to the Brigade Art and Printing Club. He has made many friends here and is look- ing forward to maintaining these friendships throughout a long and rewarding career in the Navy Supply Corps. ROBERT WILLIS BISHOP Bish 23rd Company Bish came to good old Navy from Denver, Colorado originally and later from the thriv- ing metropolis of West Simsbury, Connecticut. He then proceeded to spend a fruitful four years giving academic extra instruction to his classmates. He was always popular and always showed that extra bit of cheer that made the dark winter days pass by quicker. " Forget the question. This is the answer " . A theoretician, Bish was not, but a formula cranker exemplary, he was. The Navy will acquire a fine officer after his graduation in June of 1964. of a miniature tree, we see the warmth of the family WILLIAM AUGUST BRACKER Bill 23rd Company Bill was born and raised in the Bronx, New York and in ' 58, he enlisted in the Navy. After two years as an electronics technician, he won a Secretary of Navy ' s appointment to the Academy. He got along just fine with his academics although Math occasionally held a few secrets from him. Athletically, he was an avid ocean sailor and participated in the Newport-Bermuda Race in ' 62, and hopes to sail again in ' 64. He devoted much time and effort to the Brigade Art and Printing Club and was the secretary of the club during his Second and First Class years. Bill ' s future plans include a June wedding in ' 64 and a future career in Navy Line. His preference is destroyers and his choice of place is the West Coast. to which we will soon return for a short time. EMORY WORTH BROWN, Jr. Em 23rd Company Em came to the shores of the Severn from a city that honors its southern tradition with the idea of recruiting a few Yankees for the Confederate States Navy. His academic in- terests initially were directed toward a mas- tery of the Russian language, but the propa- ganda of the " Steam " department got to him, and his emphasis was shifted to acquiring a major in aeronautical engineering. He was one of the " busiest guys " at Navy Tech as he divided his time among the computer labs, Chapel Choir, Glee Club, " Log " staff and half a dozen other activities. Donning the gear of a lacrosse man was his goal in athletics. His devotion to the Navy and to the Academy have given him the incentive to strive high and his personality, determination and win- ning smile will assure his success in Navy Air. JOHN GORDON BUCHANAN John 23rd Company John came to the Academy from South Bend, Indiana ana was one of the few midshipmen from the Mid-West to be completely at home on the water. A High School All-American in swimming, John swam his way into the Acad- emy and has always been one of Navy ' s toughest contenders on our team. He holds all of the Plebe Butterfly records, several records and a pool record. A very active member of the " N " Club and one time member of the Drum and Bugle Corps, John always be found competing or rooting in all of our Varsity sports. Academics never posed too much of a problem to him and he managed to swim over each of his " rivers " he swam over his opponents in the pool. Never one to scorn liberty, he was one ' md managed to leave his Nev Orleans during See- ' s future career will be v.i EDWARD JOSEPH BUSH, Jr. Ed 23rd Company Ed came to the Naval Academy directly out of New Kensington High School. His years at the Academy proved an extension of the athletic prowess shown in the high school years. Coupling a loss of weight, during his Plebe year with his skill on the gridiron, resulted in the right combination for the 150 lb. football team. Ed ' s engaging, easy going personality added the final ingredient in making him the Captain of the 150 lb. team. This same personality in conjunction with his fine leadership capabilities, that were amply demonstrated while at the Naval Academy, will ensure his success in and value to the Fleet in the future years. JAMES JOHN CAMPBELL Jim 23rd Company Jim entered the Academy from Homestead High School in Pennsylvania, where his father is the Superintendent of Schools. He has proved himself to be one of the outstanding athletes in the class. Although playing Varsity basketball in the winter and Lacrosse in the Spring, Jim ' s main interest was Navy football and he has been a regular on this team since his sophomore year. Jim ' s family are prob- ably the most enthusiastic rooting section in Academy history and only missed one game in three years. Jim, like his family, has the same likeable, happy personality and it is this which should assure him success in his choosen career of Naval Aviation after his graduation. RICHARD ALAN CECIL Dick 23rd Company Dick came to USNA from Pleasant Hill, Ohio where he stood first in his high school class. Academics here at the Academy, did not pose a great threat to him and quite often he could be found just relaxing rather than studying. Dick found many outlets for his abundant spare time. He could be found on the basketball courts, on the golf course or involved in a good bridge game. His love of sports led him to the editorship of the " Log " sports department, First Class year. A great socializer, he was always involved in any bull session or party. Occasionally, he fought losing battles with the scales and drags, but he managed to take everything in his stride. Second Class summer greatly influenced " Cec " and he will be a welcome addition to Navy Air. EDWARD HARVEY CONANT Ed 23rd Company Ed entered the Academy with a set of golf clubs under one arm and a tennis racket under the other. Not having any difficulty with his studies, much to the mortification of his friends, Ed could pull the highest skinny grade on a " P work " or final, with the least amount of effort of any man alive. Con- sequently, he had much time to devote to his golf and tennis, and to pursuing the good life. Beautiful music kept Ed content, and escorting the fairer sex about the campus from time to time, helped also. But his so- journs to Eurooe and the West Coast will be Ed ' s fondest memories of USNA. Many of us are indebted to his vibrant party or- ganizing, particularly his ventures during Youngster year. So wherever the future finds Ed and the Navy, it will be mutually reward- ing for both of them. Meanwhile, we must content ourselves ■ ROBERT JOSEPH D ' AMBROSIO Bob 23rd Company Bob came to the Naval Academy from Spring- field, Virginia. An athlete at Lee High School, Bob, better known as " Giuseppe " , continued his interests in sports by quarterbacking Navy ' s " Mighty Mites " . Bob is an Army brat and is one of the few, if any, midshipmen who can call Pakistan, one of his homes. We will always remember his " never-say-die " atti- tude and his hustle shown in Company field- ball and other Company activities. Bob was never known as a " slash " but desire and determination brought him excellent grades. After leaving Severn ' s shores in ' 64, " Giu- seppe " plans to head to the white sands of Pensacola and a future career in Naval Aviation. WILLIAM EDGAR DAVIES, Jr. Bill 23rd Company Bill rode out of the Texas Badlands with his Rebel flag to pursue the southern cause at Navy. On the Banks of the Severn, he con- structed an annex of Texas which will long stand after Bill has joined the Fleet. He established a goal of dating every fair maiden in Crabtown and after that, to date them all again. Presently, Bill is on his third lap of this race and is shooting for his fourth, prior to graduation. Next to the pursuit of the fair young damsels, athletics heads his list and he has proven himself adept in this field also. " Wee Willy " was the pride of the Battalion football team and his efforts were a primary link in the chain of events that made Rugby a success at Navy. Bill is a man of intense drive and dedication and he will become a very fine Naval officer in the future. FRANK CHARLES DeSANTIS, Jr. Charlie 23rd Company Charlie came to the Academy from Thayer Academy in Massachusetts and has proved to be one of Navy ' s more outstanding per- sonalities. His sense of humor set him apart from others and wherever the group gathered to toss jokes about life at Navy, you could count on finding Charlie the center of attrac- tion, if not in person, at least in topic. He was always easy to spot in a crowd, too. He was always the one without a cap on his head. If the Navy ever loses him, it will be because they tried to make him wear it. Free moments found Charlie either enjoying his outstanding collection of classical music or indulging in the strenuous activities of foot- ball and fieldball. Charlie built up quite a reserve of luck at USNA and should have no trouble putting it to good use in the future. ROWIN KENT FLOTH Ro 23rd Company " Ro " came to the Naval Academy from Omaha, Nebraska with an athletic back- ground and an eye for the members of the fair sex. The Academy didn ' t change him much, but a certain coed from Tennessee did. He was active in a number of intramural sports, excelling in each and Ro could always be found in the weight room. Ro also dis- played his talent for music by singing in the Chapel Choir. By showing the same hustle in academics that he displayed on the ath- letic field, Ro scored against both Skinny and Bull. Second Class summer coupled with DD experience turned Ro ' s ambitions toward the sky. Navy Air is mighty fair, according to this future astronaut. with such celebrations as are in our reach . . . GRANT DALE FULKERSON Black 23rd Company Black, as many of his classmates called him, came to the Academy from Bardstown, Ken- tucky and his sometimes loud but always southern drawl was the subject of much amusement to everyone who knew him. Aca- demics were always one of his major prob- lems but he managed to get by with a mini- mum amount of effort. Sports were his main interest and he was not only an active par- ticipant but an avid fan. His knowledge of sports came in very handy as a Plebe means of obtaining carry-on. His participation was limited to intramurals and he was a very welcome addition to the basketball, soccer and Softball teams. Grant hopes to go Navy Line and he can look forward to a successful and rewarding career. Let ' s have a big hand for the Chiefs GALEN EVERETT GILBERT Galen 23rd Company Galen graduated from Tahlequah High School in ' 60 and in July of that year, abandoned the Ozark hills of which he was very fond and took up his residency at the Naval Academy. While at USNA, Gil spent more of his time counting the days until leave, than anyone else. The most remarkable thing about this " Sooner " was the fine grades he obtained with a minimum of study time. His quiet, easy-going personality could be found in whatever he did, from academics to ath- letics. Galen gave much of his time and talent to the Methodist Church in Annapolis. In the field of athletics, he spent many hours on the squash courts, improving an already superior game. Most certainly, whatever field of endeavor Galen follows in the future will be crowned with success. CLARK GRAHAM Corky 23rd Company Corky, the Florida Cracker with the New York accent, was most certainly a BMOC in every sense of the word. Straight from the reserves and Severn Prep, he quickly adjusted to the routine at the Country ' s biggest boat school. With a lot of hard work and diligence he was able to climb to the top of the Class, academically. But all of his time was not spent on the books, as he earned his first Varsity " N " his Youngster year on the Squash courts. He was also a mainstay on the Var- sity Tennis team and was a regular racquet man at heart. Directing his endeavors toward post graduate work and a degree in aero- nautical engineering, Corky is sure to have a distinguished career. Trident Scholar WILLIAM ARNOLD GREGG, Jr. Bill 23rd Company Bill, a Massachusetts man and a Cape Cod playboy, now claims his hometown to be Day- ton, Ohio. An excellent student right from the beginning. Bill is now a computer enthusiast, who is determined to become an expert. Aca- demics are not his only interest, though, since sports, women, committees and the pad take much of his time. " Gopher " is well liked by everyone who knows him. His quick wit, charm and intelligence insure his suc- cess in any field of endeavor that he chooses in the future. where the tree lights, our shiny buttons JOSEPH BEHLER GREEN Jay 23rd Company Hailing from Connecticut and Darien High School where he was an all around athlete and student, Jay came to the Academy hop- ing to attain new heights in both fields. As a Plebe track man, he tied the record in the 440 yard dash and was a member of the record setting mile-relay team. He made the transition to the Varsity and became a star performer for Navy. His abilities with the books were equally impressive and earned him a major in Nuclear Engineering. When- ever anyone encountered difficulties with the studies, he was the first man consulted and was always able to give aid regardless of the subject. His engaging smile, quick wit and desire to be a top notch officer insure Jay continued success after graduation. and the sparkling eyes of our drags compete for attention. GEORGE EOKARS HISE II George 23rd Company Coming from the landlocked state of Iowa, and never having seen the ocean, George has adjusted to the Academy life and the Navy very well. It is surprising with the back- ground that he has that he has always held an interest in the Navy. George ' s interest in foreign affairs and law can readily be seen by his participation in both the Naval Acad- emy Foreign Affairs Conference and the For- eign Relations Club. His favorite sport is swimming and he can be found many after- noons in this endeavor which has made him a regular Leviathan. Having a winning nature, George has had no trouble making friends, and this quality is sure to carry over into his Naval career. His avid interest in aviation indicates a future in Navy Air. ice :: : :■. Djf --■ ' ■■. .::;: :- " : : " ' ■ ' ? : ' -; ;ac I eii - i ;jic« ■ ; sue- - looses THOMAS McCORVEY JOHNSTON Mac 23rd Company " Mac " came to the Academy from Blacksburg, Virginia and with him he brought an aire of southern hospitality as well as a very highly developed southern drawl. Academics never came too easy for Mac, but with a few extra hours of study, he seemed to overcome this difficulty. Wrestling was his major sports in- terest and any winter afternoon, he could be found hard at work in the wrestling loft. Mac also participated on the intramural level and he was a welcome member of his Battalion soccer team. Mac was never too interested in girls but when dragging, he was always found with a very pretty girl. Subs seem to be Mac ' s preference for his naval service and he will be a welcome addition to that honored branch of the service. MICHAEL LAWRENCE KEATING Mike 23rd Company A traveling man, Mike ' s flare for culture usually lead him to Lake Chautauqua, in up- state New York, during the summer months. An all around student and athlete at Brad- ford High School, Mike turned down a Music Scholarship at Syracuse University to accept an offer from the Naval Academy. " Keats " can usually find the time from his busy schedule to drag rich blondes. His other interests in- clude the stock market, sports and bongos. Mike ' s determination and personality will make him well received wherever he goes in the future. RICHARD GEOFFREY KIRKLAND Willie 23rd Company " Willie, " a true Floridian at heart, has always been identified by his flashing smile, warm personality and that splash of blond hair. When Geoff came to the Academy, he faced a problem. Should he try to excel in academics, make his presence known in sports, or devote his time to the musical world? He solved this problem by doing well in all three. So during his time here at USNA, Geoff has been a habitual member of the Superintendent ' s List, a mainstay of the Varsity Tennis squad and an active participant in both the Chapel Choir and the Glee Club. With a record like this behind him, how can he but do well when pursuing his future career as an officer in the Nuclear Power Navy. We bring presents for needy children Symbols ot Navy: a pretty drag, a gun, and Mickey Mouse KARL MANLY KLEIN, Jr. 23rd Company Karl, a proud inhabitant of the colorful old city of New Orleans, came to the Academy after spending a year at Loyola University of the South. A very fine background in the humanities, obtained at Jesuit High School, paved the way for a major in History and Social Science through the overload program. His high academic average was indicated by a consistent appearance on the Superinten- dent ' s List. Karl ' s athletic interest leaned toward cross country and track, with a special preference for the high jump. His extracurric- ular activities included membership in the Newman Club and his class Improvements Committee. His fine Academy record promises success in whatever fields of endeavor he may choose in the future. ROBERT JOHN MIZER Bob 23rd Company Bob, alias " meece, " comes to the Academy from the big city of Detroit, Michigan and if you don ' t think that Detroit is a big city, just you ask Bob. Any time during Plebe and Youngster year, you could find Bob over at Hubbard Hall. However, a trick knee kept Bob out of Varsity crew competition following his Youngster year. A top scholar at La Salle High School, in Detroit, Bob found academics at the Academy enabled him to log in many hours on the blue trampoline. The 23rd Com- pany will always remember this easy going and witty guy. Bob came to the Academy with big aspirations of a destroyer or submarine command, but the medical department has slated Bob for Supply Corps duty instead. ALLEN WESLEY MOORED Al 23rd Company Al began his battle with USNA academics after graduating from University High in Ann Arbor, Michigan and spending a year at NAPS. His quick sense of humor and ability to laugh at himself brought him thru a tough Plebe year and has earned him many friends. He has always done a fine job in sports and thrives on the hard knocks of lightweight football and soccer, where he is frequently found in the middle of the skirmishes. Not one to throw away money, " Moo " certainly makes it last for the max amount of time, and this should help him in handling his Navy pay. Al still gets a chuckle out of his infamous blind dates but his heart will always remain in Jamaica where he found his first love on Youngster Cruise. Looking forward to a career in Navy Line and the West Coast, Al will be a lively addition to any ship. and find ourselves enraptured with a toy gun or truck PAUL THOMAS O ' NEILL P.T. 23rd Company Paul was born and raised in Hyannis, Massa- chusetts. After his junior year in high school, he was enrolled in the Bui I is School to com- plete his high school education. Paul came to the Academy on a Congressional appoint- ment. It wasn ' t long after his entrance that it became apparent to all that his motivation, maturity, friendliness and pride would make him a fine Naval officer. During Plebe year, Paul was on the Plebe Hop Committee and was always on hand with a good looking girl to hand over to one of his classmates. In in- tramurals, he was a welcome addition to the 23rd ' s sports team where he excelled in foot- ball and cross country. He did well in aca- demics and was particularly adept in Math. His future plans include a rewarding career in Destroyers. playing like children at this season which is theirs. JAMES RICHARD SEELEY Jim 23rd Company Jim is a man who enjoys the more leisurely things in life, from listening to classical music to playing gin rummy and shooting pool. Jim was a welcome addition to Navy ' s golf team as he started his Varsity career winning an " N " star during his Youngster year. In the Company, he was well known as a relaxed guy who was always game to try something new and exciting. He never had too ' much trouble with academics, but his grades always suffered a seasonal drop with the first sign of Spring, and his devotion to the Golf team successfully purged other irrelevant in- terests. Jim ' s more serious nature was mani- fested when he spent many evenings in com- munication with his interest at home in Jerome, Idaho. Somewhat allergic to the waves of the sea, Jim will never be a destroyer- man. But wherever he finds his niche, he will have a successful future. ■ m w £ VB DONALD VINCENT Sf iTH Don 23rd Company No newcomer to the ' Land of Pleasant Liv- ing, " Don hails from Silver Springs, Maryland and began his military career as a Cadet Lt.

ROBERT LEROY SOLOMON Solly 23rd Company Coming from a Navy family. Solly had little trouble adjusting to the routine at the Naval Academy. While here at USNA, he gained a well deserved reputation for maintaining a respectable academic average with the mini- mum of effort, in order to pursue his interest in light classical music and sleep. Excelling in Math, Bob has found time to help his class- mates thru this difficult subject. Bob has par- ticipated in various sports and proved to be an invaluable member of intramural cross country teams. His natural good naturedness has won many a friend for him throughout the Brigade. Being a very likely candidate for the Supply Corps because of his eyesight, the Navy stands to gain a friendly and intelligent officer after graduation. TERRY ALLEN STACY Terry 23rd Company Terry came to USNA straight from high school in Mount Pleasant, Michigan where he played both football and baseball. He continued his baseball career here, carrying a big bat for the Plebes and three years for the Varsity. Academics posed no problem for him and he managed to get good grades with a minimum of effort, appearing occasionally on the Superintendent ' s List. In his spare time, Terry could be found on the basketball or tennis court, or grabbing one of his frequent naps, and was usually a fixture at post-football game parties. As an extra activity, he served as our " Lucky Bag " company representative. The Fleet will certainly benefit from Terry ' s friendliness, sense of humor and ability to get the job done. DARYL DALE SUMMERS Daryl 23rd Company Daryl was a graduate of Central High School of Aberdeen, the class of ' 60. On occasion, the activities of the Executive Department prompt- ed a muttered threat to return there if he wasn ' t left alone. While at the Academy, he maintained an impressive academic average, as indicated by his consistent appearance on the Superintendent ' s List. He showed excep- tional ability in the field of electronics and computer technology and carried several overloads in these subjects. His athletic prow- ess was proven by his playing on both the soccer and the football teams. There was some question, however, regarding his value to himself as a swimmer. He seemed to spend a large percentage of his swimming and life saving tests on the bottom of the pool. Daryl has had four very successful years at the Academy and his achievements will continue after graduation. What a night! JOHN FAHEY THUENTE John 23rd Company From central Minnesota, through St. Thomas Military Academy and into the rigors of Plebe year came John, in the summer of 1960. With his previous military background, John proved to be more than amply suited for his stay here at Navy. Despite a few skirmishes with the Math department, John managed to come out ahead of the Academic departments. The hobby that has struck home with John is elec- tronics, in the form of stereo equipment. John ' s mature outlook on life is exemplified by his taste in classical music and his deep interest in the great historical works. With his easy going personality and his reserves of leadership potential, John is destined to make a rewarding contribution to the naval service. DAVID COWGILL WYNNE Dave 23rd Company Dave comes from Reading, Pennsylvania. He came to the Naval Academy with a strong background in the Navy, as his father is a Chief Petty Officer of twenty year ' s service. With a characteristic enthusiasm for a broad variety of activities, he took part in as many activities as he could and still keep his grades at a good 3.1 mark. He was on the Public Relations Committee, the Ring and Crest Committee and served as the Company " Log " and " Splinter " representative. On top of all this, he played Plebe and J.V. soccer and ran Company cross country. His interests on graduating rest with either Navy Air or Sub. Whichever he chooses, we will look for a long and bright career for Dave. Such celebrations leave us happy and relaxed LOREN DEAN ARRINGTON Dean 24th Company For a man destined by birth never to see the ocean, Dean proved them all wrong. After a tour in the enlisted Navy, Dean came to the USNA by way of the Naval Academy Prep School. Being a sailor at heart, his interest was centered around our YP Squadron but he still found enough time for the Company pis- tol and Brigade Championship Cross County teams. With all of his " extra " time spent on Choir, Glee Club and Musical Club shows, it is a wonder to all that he ever found the time to do any studying, but he did and his aver- age shows it. Hopefully dedicated to Navy Line, Dean can be nothing but an asset to the Navy. FELTON GERARD ATWELL Jerry 24th Company Jerry was considered one of the luckiest of midshipmen because his hometown is Annap- olis. He came to the Academy thru the Fleet, following in the footsteps of his brother, a member of the Class of ' 57. Academics were never too much of a problem, for by determina- tion and hard work, Jerry was able to keep his grades above average and his weekends free for his favorite pastime, who also lived in Annapolis. An electronic device of his made it safe to have the lights on after taps and ren- dered his room the meeting place for those who needed extra study or just a late bull session. Among his many interests were good music, automobiles, and since his home was so close, liberty. Jerry participated in a variety of intramural sports and during his Youngster year, he was a member of the Brigade Cham- pionship YP Squadron. His desire for success insures Jerry of a brilliant career in the future. JOHN DANIEL BALLBACH Dan 24th Company Dan took a long route to the Academy from his home in Wilmington, Delaware, by way of Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois. In the field of sports, he was not only an avid fan but an experienced participant. Football proved to be his favorite and he proved to be an asset to the Battalion and Company teams, coaching as well as playing. He was just as much at home singing in the church choir or teaching a Sunday School class, as he was on the gridiron. He was an active member of the NACA and OCU. His various other activities all pointed toward his major inter- est of political science and diplomacy. If he wasn ' t preparing a radio program for the French Club meeting, he could be found read- ing about current affairs. His sincerity and willingness to work will make him an asset to the Navy in the future. wearing a contented smile, a lipsticked collar. JOHN JOSEPH BARSOSKY The Animal 24th Company After spending two years at Rochester Uni- versity, John came to the Naval Academy. " The Animal, " as he was known by most of his classmates, had a hard time adjusting to the routine of Academy life, since, while at Rochester U., he became one of the school ' s few professional Bridge players. Plebe and Youngster years found John battling with the Russian profs. Always one to give any prof a battle over the finer points involved, John was well known among the elite of the Aca- demic Departments. Most of these skirmishes came about because he liked to sleep rather than read the textbooks, although his class standing was nothing to be ashamed of. The Navy will be getting a fine officer with a great sense of humor and a natural friendliness. We expend our high spirits, too The Advanced Weapons Labs are open all night DANIEL CHAPLIN BENNETT Dan 24th Company Dan came to Navy via Sullivan School and Stephens Institute of Technology. He had little trouble adapting himself to the ways of Navy life since he was a one-time Navy jun- ior. Dan could aways be found where there was the least work being done, since he was an avowed member of the leisure class. An excellent athlete, Dan ' s abilities were a contri- buting factor to the success of the 24th ' s soc- cer and fieldball teams. His deals, some of which did not materialize, were a constant source of enjoyment and laughter for his classmates. Most of Dan ' s free time was spent in his two favorite pastimes, sleeping and listening to rock-and-roll. Dan ' s quick wit and easy smile will make a fine contribution to Navy Air. RICHARD JAMES BURNS Dick 24th Company Dick, a former Navy junior, was born in New Rochelle, New York and moved around quite a bit during the earlier years of his life until his family finally settled in Miami, Florida. He attended Christopher Columbus High School in Miami and was an outstanding ath- lete in all three major sports. At USNA, Dick continued his deep devotion to sports and while he never attained the Varsity status to which so many aspire but only few attain, Dick was an active participant in intramurals. The possessor of a wonderful, down-to-earth outlook on life in general, Dick was well liked by all who knew him. Not one to fret over trivial matters such as academics, Dick made better than average grades while at the Academy with relatively no trouble. Dick plans a career in Navy Line and should go a long way in his chosen field. DAVID JAY CAREY Dave 24th Company Dave came to Navy from Jeannette, Penn- sylvania as a prospective football star, but wrestling became his sport. Since that time, he has placed third and second in the East- ern Collegiate Wrestling Championships and has taken part in the National Championships. In his First Class year, he was elected team Captain. Dave is also a member of the Bri- gade Honor Committee and Vice President of the " N " Club. Dave ' s sense of humor was well known throughout his four years, only exceeded by his shower singing voice. About the only things Dave hasn ' t been able to han- dle easily, since coming to the Academy have been a few girls and his weight during wres- tling season. Though he had aspired to enter upon a singing career, he will enter flight training after graduation. in games, devised from our studies HENRY GEORGE CHALKLEY Hank 24th Company Hank came to USNA after a short tour in the enlisted Navy and a year at NAPS. Academics were not one of Hank ' s attributes, but he maintained a respectable average with a minimum of effort and could be found on many a Friday night at the Portuguese Club Banquets. In the Spring and Fall, he spent much of his time cruising the Chesapeake on the YP ' s as a member of the Battalion YP Squadron. Being from warm San Antonio, Texas, and sometimes accused of being from south of the border, Hank spent the winter months curled up in bed listening to one of his favorite jazz artists or playing his guitar and dreaming of old Mexico. With his easy go- ing manner, good sense of humor and many bright ideas for having a good time, Hank will have no trouble earning his Navy wings. playing war to learn its rules. ERNEST EDWARD CHRISTENSEN Chris 24th Company The second of the Christenson clan to be graduated from the Academy, Chris had the distinction of beginning his career in life in Annapolis 21 years earlier. He brought with him a great many experiences having lived abroad in many different countries. Although it took him two years to lose his reputation of international " playboy, " his natural abilities were more than sufficient in every instance. Sportswise, he earned letters in both light- weight football and crew, along with being a star on a Brigade Champion cross country team. Chris complimented these feats with several academic successes and a social presence that will make him long remembered in our June Week memories. His future seems well assured as he follows in his father ' s foot- steps as a Navy Aviator. , DENNIS JOSEPH CONNOLLY Denny 24th Company Denny, better known as " Jet " among his friends, graduated from Xavier High School in New York and came to Annapolis after a year at Columbian Prep. While at Columbian, Denny sharpened his pencils while sharpen- ing his already outstanding gridiron abilities. Since then, football has been one of Denny ' s favorite pastimes which could be rivalled on- ly by a cute little redhead from Washington, D.C. Though weekends were hers, Denny kept busy in the Brigade activities during the week. Besides playing football, he was very active in the Catholic Choir and the Brigade Im- provements Committee. An avid fan of modern jazz, he waged a constant battle with the Mid-store about whether he should buy or not buy. Denny should honestly live up to his nickname when he puts on his Wings of Gold. RICHARD WESLEY DAWSON Dick 24th Company Being an old " Great Lakes Sailor, " Dick hasti- ly adjusted to the waters of the Severn. The waters of his native Illinois attracted Dick ' s attention at an early age and following this maritime inclination, Dick pursued his ambi- tion and entered the Naval Academy. Once at the Academy, Dick became an active partici- pant in all aquatic sports such as sailing and swimming. Never lacking interest in other sports, Dick was also to be found on the Com- pany cross country and squash teams. He tried his hand at many other ventures such as the Concert Band. Dick will undoubtedly have a fine opportunity for advancement in his chosen field of the Destroyer Navy. LEROY FRANK FIELD, Jr. Smokey 24th Company Smokey, thus called because of the smoke trail left by his burning pitches in softball, will long be remembered by his classmates as the " bouncin ' est " guy around. When not on the mound, he could be found near a scream- ing band practicing the latest dance. Because of poor vision, Smokey plans to enter the Supply Corps School in Athens, Georgia af- ter his graduation, that is, if he can find it!! One thing is for sure, no matter where he may go, there will always be a crowd because people just can ' t resist one of the nicest guys around. PAUL REED FLETCHER Paul 24th Company When Paul came to the Academy from Bethes- da, Maryland, his biggest shock came, not from the rigors of Plebe year but from the realiza- tion that his account was only accredited with $3.11 for travel expenses. In the years that followed, Paul, realizing that his account was below the average of his classmates, kept close track of every dime he made. At times one would think that he was trying to drive the 8th Wing Barber Shop out of busi- ness, but he was determined to catch up. Paul will always be remembered for his quick wit and as the man who put studies before letter writing and yet as the one you could turn to for sound advice at any time. There is no guessing for us as to the future of this Navy man because with his initiative and drive, he ' ll go to the top in his field. PAUL MICHAEL FRANKOVICH Frank 24th Company Born in Youngstown, Ohio and raised in Eu- clid, Ohio, " Frank " found his way to the Academy after spending two years in the Marine Corps. He found his previous training a great deal of help during his Plebe summer, and was appointed a Platoon Leader in his Company. Plebe year, " Frank " found he en- joyed running cross country and rowing light- weight crew. He participated in both of them all four years and won his numerals in cross country. He won his " N " in Varsity lightweight crew and had the distinction of being the on- ly Youngster to row in all the Varsi ty races. He spent his Second Class summer as a mem- ber of the Plebe detail, starting the new Plebes off on the right foot. After graduation, he plans to return to the Marine Corps, field artillery branch for as he puts it, " After four years of walking, I plan on riding the rest of my time. " CARL EUGENE GARRETT Carl 24th Company Carl came to us from the farm country of Indiana. With him, he brought a combination of big-heartedness and determination that has assured his success at the Academy. He has been very active in sports, particularly in cross country and led his company to the Brigade Championship. Carl has never been too busy to share his understanding of academ- ics with us. A large part of Carl ' s life is his sound Christian faith, which has found ex- pression in the local Church of Christ and i n the Officer ' s Christian Union. Carl ' s charac- ter and friendly manner will be a definite asset to the future Naval service. a birthday instead . . . I told you it wouldn ' t be frozen, it ' s only 33° JOHN EDWARD GORMAN Gor 24th Company " Gor " made the transition from Mount Vernon, Missouri to the Naval Academy at Annapolis, with surprising ease. His stay here at USNA has been merely a continuation of his fine past performance, with his credits including numerous reigns on the Superintendent ' s List, stars, " N ' s " in Varsity lightweight foot- ball and several records in Battalion track. Not all was work and serious, for his quick wit, dynamic personality and love of parties make him a welcome addition to any and all groups. All of this should serve him well in his future duties and life as a Naval Aviator. in a time-honored use MARK HOWARD GRIFFITHS Griff 24th Company Mark came to Navy from Cleveland, Ohio by way of Bui I is Prep. An exceptional athlete, " Griff " played outstanding football on the 150 lb. team. Fieldball was another sport that was proud to have him as a participant. Mark ' s easy going manner and good sense of humor made him very popular and a welcome member of any group. " Griff " liked to say that he was always one step ahead of the Academic Departments, although it was usu- ally more than one step. Never one to look the other way when a pretty girl passed by, Mark made many new acquaintances as a midshipman. His loyalty and enthusiasm for the service will carry him far. Mark ' s future plans are in Navy Air where he will be a most welcome addition. ' Ml - r: i : :;:e to • di DONALD ALVIN HANNSZ Don 24th Company Don, a full blooded Texan, was born and raised in Houston, Texas. He had a good start in military life as he attained the rank of Cadet Lt. Col. and held the position of Corps Com- mander in the Milby High School R.O.T.C. During our Plebe summer, Don was appointed C.P.O. and was a great help to his classmates who had no previous military training. His grades were above average, however he never quite attained Superintendent ' s List marks. His sports interests include Plebe rifle team, uling squadron and Battalion crew, during his Plebe year. The three remaining Don competed in Battalion water polo, Battalion crew and Company fieldball. A lucky i ame Don ' s way his Second Class Christmas and he was then free to date the rons, and this he did. plans call for Navy Air. JERRY FRANKS HOGAN Hogs 24th Company " Hogs, " an old cain raiser from the lush, green bottom land of Alabama, discarded his white sheet after his high school frolics to enter the Navy as an enlisted man. His first impression was one of deep enthusiasm and consequently, he decided that the Navy was to be his life. He entered NAPS and soon af- ter was accepted to join the " Hellacious Throngs " of the Brigade. With his " sweet " smile, he met with very little difficulty. His primary interests are Crew, Books and Women but not necessarily in that order. With his deep southern drawl and his stellar person- ality, he is quickly accepted by young and old alike. He is presently planning to enter into Naval aviation via the Burke program. STEPHEN ALLEN JARECKI Steve 24th Company Straight from Rush street in Chicago to Rob- ber ' s Row came the " Blue Trampoline Kid " . Steve wasn ' t one to sweat over academics, so he usually could be found meditating in his " horizontal office " . Once aroused from his typical supine position, Steve could be found playing Company soccer or Battalion handball. His outside interests ranged from the fairer sex to more of the fairer sex. With the " Fixers " ability to get things done, Steve will be a valuable asset to the Navy line, which is his chosen career for the future. I CARL WILLIAM KELLEM Carl 24th Company Carl came to the Navy from the midwestern town of Corydon, Indiana. He graduated from high school in ' 57 and after a year of civilian life, he answered the call of the sea and joined the regular Navy. He joined under the Nuclear Power program and served aboard the USS Sargo SS(N) 583. In ' 59 he applied and was accepted at NAPS and after a year of hard work, he was accepted by the Naval Academy. Being an " old salt " by the time he entered USNA, he became Coxswain of the Crew team. But being a deep water sailor, he changed over to the Sailing team. He sailed in the Newport-Bermuda Race twice during his four years and called the " High- land Light " his home on the sea. Academics did not prove to be a difficult problem with Carl, and he plans to go into the Nuclear Power Program after graduation. THOMAS JAMES KELLEY Tom 24th Company The fact that Tom came to the Naval Acad- emy directly out of high school was no hin- drance to him. A top notch student, he main- tained a star average at USNA and has taken elective courses in his special interest which is the field of Nuclear Physics. He partici- pated in many Battalion and Company sports while here at the Academy but handball proved to be his favorite sport. Although he lists Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania as his present home, he is a Philadelphian at heart. Tom hopes to make his career in Nuclear Submarines, after his graduation in June of ' 64. EDWARD RONALD LOSURE, Jr. Ed Traveling with the Navy to Japan, Hawaii and Rhode Island, Ed had his sights set on the Naval Academy for many years before mi- grating this way. He made his mark on the Academy and vice versa. He was on the Com- pany cross country team and the pistol team. Academically, Ed had little trouble, except for his famous or rather, infamous bouts with the final exams. But Ed always worked hard whether it be academics, cross country, pro- fessional subjects or the " extra curricular weekends " which mean so much to all of us. A friend to all and a willingness to help any- one who needed his help, Ed will make a fine record at Nuclear Power School and later on in the Silent Service. of the ail-too willing plebes. ■: " : ' - MICHAEL EASLEY LUNDY Mike 24th Company Mike came to the Naval Academy straight from Rocky Mount High School, in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, where he was an All- State football player. At the Academy, while not endowed with the particular ability to play for the Navy Eleven, Mike became a a mainstay on the 6th Battalion team. Mike made above average grades with little effort and despite the fact that " the profs are out to get me " . When not dragging some beautiful young thing, Mike could always be found arguing the merits of Southern football or Southern anything, for that matter. Mike ' s quick wit and easy Southern manner made him the center of most any social gathering. As of now, Mike plans to make the Marine Corps his career and the Academy ' s loss should be the Corps ' gain. CHARLES LEIGHTON MOORE III C. L. 24th Company From the surf of the Hawaiian beaches, Charlie made his way to USNA after gradu- ation from Punahou High School. With his background as a Navy junior, " C. L. " easily adjusted to the rigors of Plebe year. His waking hours, although few in number, were divided between academics, athletics, bridge games and attempts at charming ones of the gentler sex. An occasional member of the " Supt ' s List " , final exams seemed to be his " Waterloo " . During the Spring and the Fall, he contributed his varied abilities to the Ocean Sailing team and in the Winter, he was a mainstay of t he Company football team. A career in the Black Shoe Navy appears to be his line of pursuit after his graduation and with his aggressiveness and devotion to duty, he should go straight to the top. ROBERT EUGENE NEWMAN Bob 24th Company A typical midwestern drawl characterizes this tall, lanky midshipman from St. Joseph, Mis- souri. Bob was a standout in basketball and track in high school. His talent for making baskets was a big help to the Company basketball teams and he also participated in volleyball and cross country. A star student, Bob did well in all academic endeavors. Bridge is a favorite pastime of his and those who challenge him find the going tough. A dry wit and perpetual smile made him well liked by all of his classmates. NACA and OCU activities shared his spare time with Bridge. The field of Nuclear Submarines will present a real challenge to Bob but he is more than capable of meeting the mental rigors there. We can expect the Fleet to wel- come this outstanding Ensign. ■T 1 . B D 4 . JUDO FREEMAN OSTEN Judd 24th Company Although born in Minnesota, Judd adopted the South and now claims the state of Texas, as his home. After almost entering our rival Academy, Annapolis finally won out. Possess- ing a yearning to broadcast over the radio, Judd became one of the Brigade ' s disc jockeys by joining the WRNV staff. Fursuing his desire to be " on stage " , Judd put forth excellent performances with the Masquerad- ers. Not to be held indoors, Judd was an avid sports fan. Following the car races closely, the other Plebes often learned of drivers not even known to exist. This sports enthusiasm was followed by continually playing a fast game of tennis and being a member of the Company Softball team. Judd will long be remembered for the kindly advice he rend- ered to his friends. Judd ' s sights are set on the Silent Service after his graduation. Evening is a time for thought CHARLES CARROLL PARISH Charlie 24th Company A native of Lexington, Virginia, where his father is a mathematics professor at Virginia Military Institute, Charlie followed several members of his family to USNA. Although he was quite a bit younger than the majority of his classmates, Charlie wasted no time in showing all of us that this was no handi- cap. Blessed with a bright, quick mind, Charlie became a member of the most select group of midshipmen, those who wear stars. Charlie proved his worth in other areas and became an outstanding swimmer. Having never competed in swimming races, he earned, thru two years of hard work, a place on the Varsity swimming team. Charlie hopes that his future will be with the Navy Air and we know that he will be an asset to this the service. I of the future ahead, and the plans we have made EDMUND FRANK QUINTON Ed 24th Company Ed was born a dual national, in the wilds of Canada and his citizenship was determined when his family moved to California in 1950. Looking forward to a Naval career, Ed joined the Reserves before he graduated from John Muir High School in ' 58. Ed followed in the footsteps of an older brother by attending Columbian Prep and obtaining a Reserve Appointment to the Academy. Although aca- demics weren ' t easy for him, his high degree of motivation surmounted these difficulties and he also gave his time to being an active member of the French Club and the Newman Club. Athletically, he participated in various intramural sports and won his numerals in Battalion swimming team. Ed ' s future lies in the Supply Corps, where his exceptional drive will be rewarded with great success. DONALD JOSEPH RAY Don 24th Company Don came to the Academy after spending four years in the Navy and was always ready with a salty tale of his days in the Fleet. He made the change to Academy life easily and encountered no troubles with the academics or other phases of the system. Don ' s outside activities include crew, which called for many hours at the Boat House but resulted in many rewards including a trip to Greece to race for the U.S.A. He was known for his collection of Folk and Western music as well as love of Company parties. On the weekends or football trips, one could usually find him pursuing one of these interests. At present, Don ' s sights are set on joining the Nuclear Sub program and his desire and love of the Navy are certain to gain him a successful career in the future. if only for the next day DONALD EDWARD SEYK Don 24th Company A midwesterner by birth, Don was a con- firmed sailor before even reaching the Naval Academy. A fun loving soul, Don appreciates the finer things in life. He has continually amazed all of us by keeping one step ahead of the Executive and Academic Departments, although at times, the race seemed almost even. Graduating from Lyons Township in LaGrange, Illinois in 1960, Don entered USNA the same year and found a home in the 24th Co. A Youngster cruise in the Caribbean con- vinced Don of the virtues of Navy Line. After much consideration, Don has decided to enter the Fleet as a junior officer aboard a DLG, on the West Coast. Don ' s graduation brings a loss to some of the spirit of the 24th, as well as a valuable addition to the Fleet. and of the responsibilities we share as future Naval officers and as men. THEODORE FRANCIS SMOLEN Igor 24th Company Forsaking the plains of the midwest for a life on the sea, " Igor " was quick to adapt to the Navy way of life. His love of the sea was soon evidenced by his four years of sailing with the Ocean Squad and his avid interest in Naval Architecture. Igor had some troubles with the Academic Department on this subject but won out in the end by going it on his own. Always easy going and a con- stant source of laughs, Igor ' s deepest con- cern was for his rapidly receding hairline. In the final analysis, the Naval Academy ' s loss, after his graduation in June of ' 64, will definitely be the Navy Line ' s gain. WILLIAM EDWARD SPRIGGS Scruggs 24th Company In the summer of 1960, the city of Fremont, Ohio began its reconstruction as " Scruggs " put his sights on Navy. He arrived here Plebe summer with books, a slide rule and a look of mischief in his eye. He didn ' t really have need of the books or the slide rule since his natural ability saw him thru his four years, but he never lost that look of mischief. During the weekdays Bill could often be seen on the 150 lb. football field, in his pad, or enjoying a good hand of bridge. On the week- ends, B ill donned his " stars " and headed out into town to drag. We know Bill has a lot to contribute to the Navy and in the future, Naval Aviation will see a lot of him. THOMAS HAROLD STICK Sticker 24th Company " Sticker " came to the Naval Academy from Muncie, Indiana. Although it was strange at first, he rapidly adjusted to the way of life and became an outstanding member of the Brigade. Quick with a smile and slow to anger, " Sticker " won the admiration of every- one he met. He worked hard and devoted a good deal of time to Academics, and his efforts were rewarded with a high class standing and the stars he wore. He partici- pated in Company soccer, basketball and Softball and on off days, could be found in the Conditioning room throwing the barbells around. Tom attacked everything with vigor, radiating a will to succeed that was in- spirational to everyone around. An unbeatable combination of natural talent, friendliness and drive to succeed will make Tom an out- standing Naval officer as he pursues " the paths of the Dolphins " . ROBERT BRUCE TAYLOR III Bruce 24th Company Bruce graduated from Baltimore Poly Tech in 1960 as an honor student. During his high school days, he played football and baseball as well as wrestling in the winter. In the summer before his senior year at Tech, he first donned the Navy blue by joining the local Reserve unit. Since coming to the Acad- emy, his enthusiasm toward the Baltimore Orioles and Colts has only been exceeded by his enthusiasm towards Adm. Rickover ' s sub- marine Navy. His good humor, athletic ability and outstanding scholastic standing are a rare combination. Bruce has managed to be active in the Brigade Activities Committee and the Christmas Card Committee. Upon graduation, the Navy will gain a very com- petent Submariner. WILLIAM EDGAR WILSON Bill 24th Company Before arriving at the Naval Academy from Tampa, Florida, Bill stopped off at Columbian Prep School to sharpen some of his aca- demics and pencils. Like most of his class- mates, Bill spent most of his time studying but taking the mission of the Academy liter- ally, he also spent a great deal of time build- ing his physical and spiritual body. In fact, almost any weekend, Bill could be found in the fieldhouse working out. His extracurric- ular activities included the Officer ' s Christian Union and the Naval Academy Christian As- sociation, which accounted for his spiritual development. These four years have prepared Bill for the fulfillment of his ambition to become a Naval Aviator. SHELDON SIN HEE ZANE Shel 24th Company Shel was born in Hilo, Hawaii and attended Hilo High School to pick up his pre-naval academy education. Always a fun lover, Shel was able to stay out of trouble until Sen. Fong provided the political appointment that was to bring Shel to the Mainland for his July start at Annapolis. Having completed the summer training, Shel joined the 24th which was to be his home for his four years at USNA. Always a good student, he continued to get fine grades in the normal and extra subjects he covered here. A constant " Supt ' s List " performance brought a pride in achieve- ment, in addition to a few extra privileges. With graduation drawing near, Shel is care- fully considering his future in the service. Destroyers or Nuclear Power will provide a rewarding career for him until the day he can return to his fish and poi. We think and dream . . . and sleep this night as the doors of Bancroft Hall are locked until tomorrow . . .

Four years of molding and changing, of building and training. It all seems to have gone so fast, yet looking back it seems as if we have always been midshipmen. The Academy and its way of life have become so much a part of our way of life that the outside world seems strange and confused while all the same, very inviting. It ' s been a long and hard four years as we struggled to keep abreast of !a constantly changing curriculum and military order, but it has done it ' s great part in making us the future officers that we are today and it ' s been worth it. What follows is a record of what we did and what the Academy did to us during our " Four years together by the Bay where Severn joins the tide. " I hi ' l " !i.i ' i " -,l il.iy 400 Plebe Summer We formed a long line as we entered the gates, waiting for someone to show us where to go. We exchanged greetings with those we met and bid farewell to those who accompanied us. We left behind our civilian clothes, the familiar places and friendly faces; we sought a new en- vironment and expanded horizons. During the first few weeks we learned to shine shoes, make hospital corners, to dread reveille bells, and to respond to commands. We became aware of our appearance, of attention to detail, of regulations and eternal accountability. Playing, working and living together molded us into a close group and indoctrinated us into mili- tary life. Where once we read of the sailor ' s life, now we were involved in whipping lines, sailing before the wind, minding our helm and exchanging sea stories. By the end of the summer, we had un- knowingly changed until the old familiar places and friendly faces became distant memories. The longest day The first day was filled with comforting business Our routine was one of learning there were the official forms we had polls among the homesick . . . and a light trim around the sides. . . . to be a midshipman, and one of many midshipmen . . . " 71, 7. T. v fl 1 drill by squads. We were instructed in the ways of a sailor, and surprisingly, at times, that of a soldier . . . J Plebe year turned out to be one of surprises ■- J t and of chaos and confusion 4 Plebe And suddenly, we found ourselves in the midst of confusion, with the Brigade replacing our summer squad leaders. Where there had once been a favorable ratio of 18 plebes to one upperclassman, there were now three to one odds against us. The activities of a week during the summer squeezed into one normal work- ing day, and the Academic Departments succeeded in claiming our nights as well. What was left of our time was occupied by come-arounds and professional questions. Year i The performance of the same tasks over and over again put us under a subtle pressure supplemented by the upperclasses at every opportunity. We were nourished with a constant flow of food . li When the ice broke and melted so did the rigors of plebe year, ding few remaining milestones swch as the Hemdcm Monument. and spring brought hope Tea fights provided a welcome break 4 Tn We had our moment of triumph. But the end was just a beginning. Youngster Cruise Youngster cruise was our first opportunity to leave people on the shore behind us, and it was the fleet ' s first chance to put us to work. Completing the required practical factors, we were confronted with more professional ques- tions but we found our answers by turning to various divisions . . . rather than visiting libraries. a _i In the last few weeks, practical factor books disappeared overboard and dungarees tightened around our waists, as thoughts turned to upperclass status. Sometimes, we helped the Division in the bright sun above decks. With eager anticipation we strained our eyes for the traditional glimpse of the Chapel Dome that would make us Youngsters . . . we hid out during working hours With the longest stripe in the Navy . . came an increased academic load and the unbelievable Skinny Department. Third For the first time as upperclassmen we sported a newly acquired stripe and anchor and ventured into the academic realm, where the intricacies of physics and steam were lucidly explained to us. Skinny labs introduced us to laboratory procedure as well as emphasizing import- ant material. The department ' s clear, con- cise lectures were always scheduled im- mediately following lunch. Class Year When the Academic Departments gave us time we engaged in the usual Youngster pursuits with the usual high ideals. 4 J ' 1 !

Second Class The reveille bell at 0500 on Gradu- ation Day found everyone still up, vainly attempting to close his all-too-full cruise box. While some huddled together with their June Week drags, others sat in quiet contemplation of the adventures to come. During the summer, we would conquer enemy-held beaches covered with barbed wire and girls; the air above us and the inferno of a flaming engine room. The Navy furnished one of Norfolk ' s finest to transport us to the Amphib Base at Little Creek, where we off-loaded ac- cording to standard doctrine. Summer . . in the bright summer sun, we departed. In noonday heat, we arrived. The line for chow Conforming to the standard Navy-Marine procedure we stood in lines, marched in lines . . . even sat in lines the line for muster . . . V r the short cut through the woods and the rubber boats (B-O-A-T-S) i i i ii culminated in the long climb down But the scheduled inactivity soon gave way to more adventurous work. to our waiting water taxis % We learned the fine art of vertical envelopment ... a one-way ride.

Second Class Year Return from the summer brought us into a world of academic terror. Bi- monthly Navigation and Thermo exams provided an incentive to remain in the Hall instead of exercising the new- found privilege of weekends, while the pilot weapons course and computer lab provided many frustrating moments. Humor was found in the 7-N day and the average load of six charts, six textbooks and one steam kit, which were carried on the Luce-Melville Hall races. ■ | BfrjB We discovered the complexities of Woo Poo academics After tying up Major Shultz the complexities of formations . . . and the complexities of their scrambled eggs. The winter provided an opportunity to visit our counterparts on the Hudson, returning more appreciative of our own reveille system. -4ts «i- ' Friendships span half the world First class cruise; for the first time we assumed the status of an officer and went off to see the world. On cruisers, carriers, destroyers, and auxiliaries we put to sea for our initiation to wardroom life and re- sponsibilities. We went with the Sixth Fleet in the Med, with the Seventh Fleet in the Far East, with the Sec- ond Fleet in the North Atlantic, with the submarine and arctic forces, and with foreign navies throughout the world. We found out what it was like to navigate at sea where the point fix practiced in Luce Hall degen- erated to something we could cover with our hand. We met girls in Copenhagen and Tokyo and found that language was no barrier. But most of all, we discovered that the Navy we had met on Youngster Cruise really wasn ' t so bad after all and the prospects of surface service selection started to have definite attractions.

Gibraltar Paris The Alps First Class Year At long last the final year arrived and with it the feeling that we were on top of the heap for the first time since we were seniors in high school. We faced changes and made many of them our- selves. Plebe year was slackened even more to make room for increased academics and Hundreth Night was correspondingly altered to reflect a more sensible approach. We fought with Term Papers only to discover that we arrived a year too early: ' 65 won ' t have to do any. We accepted with pleasure new found privileges such as Friday night liberty and cars in mid-March. Announced only ten days in advance, we nevertheless took full advantage of " Winter Leave " as we searched deep into the cor- ners of our wallets for money for one more week- end. Every day brought new mail from agents want- ing to insure our lives, our cars, and our future wives. We pondered the question of a debt loaded sports car versus an old Ford for next to nothing. Service Selection provided its own moments of crisis as our class standing finally caught up with us. Most of all we just counted the days until we could put on the insignia of an Ensign or a Second Lieutenant and make our own way in the world. Hygiene, Meteorology, Executive, or whatever, lectures were for sleeping •f!i The Lettermen, a pleasant interlude in the Dark Ages . . enjoyed much more if you had a drag alongside The publicity and prestige is nice, but they don ' t make up for all the work. And So The Year Continued On There were pleasent pursuits enlivened by messhall fun m i-rmi - s r The Musical Club Show was a success. While " Seabreeze " was a fiasco. Towards Our Final June Week And in the end we passed our responsibilities on. THE BRIGADE The Lucky Bag is a Brigade publication, and we, as first class, were responsible for its publication just as we were responsible for the Brigade. What is the Brigade? The following pages will show you. From the miserable plebe closing windows and calling chow to the tyrannical company officer closing con lockers and holding us re- sponsible; from the jaunty youngsters through the self assured second class; all these went into the companies, battalions, and regiments that combine to form the Brigade of Midshipmen. They were ours just as much as we were their ' s and they came in all sizes, all shapes, and with all types of dispositions. Virtually indis- tinguishable in the pictures that follow, they were three thousand unique individuals. Ml ' ■ fife ' v 5fc ' . : ■ « . it. • i, ?•■ r . r j V ' -mma - - - 4 r Mid ' n Capt. W. C.

ATHLETICS To many a midshipman, a chance to work-out at his favorite sport and obtain the physical activity necessary for well being is also his only chance to escape from the long hours of drudgery he must spend daily with the books. Likewise, the energies spent in sup- porting the many Navy teams from the need for the activity and spirit which bind the Brigade into a lifelike team rather than an independent group of students. Thus, sports at the Academy, both intra-mural and varsity, played a prominent role in all of our lives, for they not only helped us develop ourselves physically, but they added to our daily purpose and helped to build in us a sense of pride for the Brigade. The year 1963-64 in Navy sports was as usual a fine one, with many outstanding teams, including the national champions in 150 lb. football, the second-place soccer team in the nation, and of course, the football team which " Beat Army.

Wayne Hardin Coach The season was off to a flying start NAVY 51 W VIRGINIA 7 September 21 — Morgantown, West Virginia— and a hint of things to come. With the start of a new season, Navy felt it had the potential ability and desire to win, but the intangible but necessary quality of spirit would be the key factor which would ultimately decide our fate. However, the mere fact that West Virginia was favored was enough to insure an affirmative answer to this question, as Navy mangled the heavier Mountaineers, 51-7, scoring in every quarter in almost every conceivable manner, including runs by Paskewich and Sai, a pass interception runback by Orr, a recovered fumble in the end zone by Sjuggerud, and the first of many fieldgoals during the season by Marlin. In addition, the key to our offense, our quarter- backing, was sparked by Roger Staubach, but effectively backed by Bruce Able, as both players threw touchdown passes. The best com- bination of the day saw Staubach hit flankerback Skip Orr with several passes, but these only served to illuminate the offense as the first three teams scored. When on defense, the line enjoyed much success in catching highly touted Jerry " The Most " Yost in his own backfield and dropping him for long losses. Nothing was left to doubt. Navy was up for a big year. Sai tough to bring down, as usual ■ Not bad for the first game Orlosky chews up yards behind Donnelly block Faked out again NAVY 28 WM. and MARY . . . as Navy copped tivo in a row An enthusiastic Homecoming crowd, enjoying a warm fall afternoon, saw a good solid game against traditional homecoming rival William and Mary, as Roger Staubach set a single game total offense record of 297 yards, while leading the team to a 28-0 victory. The Brigade and alumni were in a mood for a bigger score, but the Indians were not to be called quiters this day. and Navy had to earn each of its scores. A 94 yard touchdown drive in the third quarter included some of the best plays of the day, as Dick Earnest was outstanding with a spectacular leap- ing catch, and later, in a fourth-down, 9 yards-to-go situ- ation, Roger the Dodger once again showed his running ability. In addition, during the game, Staubach and full- back Pat Donnely combined for the longest pass play of the season for a big 61 yards. Throughout the game, the line, led by Tom Lynch, Fred Marlin, A l Krekich, and Jim Freeman provided outstanding blocking while Navy was on offense, giving our quarterbacks maximum time to make their passes good. Our team had had to work this day, but we had won substantially, and our climb to the top had begun. mam One key block makes things go SI 0 ? V V k A 4 ™ %M - : ' :. . You can ' t miss with this blocking Everybody wants the ball Somebody is about to be run over Staubach to Campbell, and fifteen more yards -i nuiH 1 and then soundly beat a Big Ten contender A football contest with a Big Ten football team is always looked forward to with enthusiasm by the Bri- gade and the team, and this year ' s game was no excep- tion. Anxious to make up for a loss to Minnesota the year before, and eager to continue our winning ways, the Spirit of the 4100 rose, and at the end of the fourth quarter, the Wolverines found themselves thoroughly whipped, 26-13. Navy broke the game open during the second quarter with two touchdowns, the first follow- ing a poor Michigan punt, and the second the result of a long pass play from Staubach to Johnny Sai, giving us a highly enjoyable 13-0 halftime lead. During the third quarter we raised the score to 20-0 as Pat Donnelly punched over from the one yard line following Skip Orr ' s interception and runback of Frosty Evashevski ' s pass. Michigan then turned and put on a fierce scoring drive, only to have their back broken as Navy retaliated with an 80 yard scoring drive for our fourth and final touchdown. In this game Roger Staubach once again broke the single game total offense record as he was responsible for 307 big yards for Navy. This victory helped the team of the 4100 to rise to number 4 in the national rankings. V 4 Stopped . . . but good Overconfidence was probably the key word in our first and only loss of the sea- son, as the Mustangs of SMU squeaked past us as last second passes by Roger Staubach fell incomplete, ending what had been the most excit ing game to date. Navy held a lead, although never large, for most of the game, but the fired-up Mustangs, led by tailback John Roderick, scored two quick touchdowns in the last quarter for the winning margin. However, Navy was never out of the game, as the team fought back in the closing seconds, and it took the gun to insure the victory for SMU. Even in defeat, the team earned the admiration of many of those present. Roger Staubach scored our first touch- down with a one yard plunge, and Johnny Sai made a similar effort in the second quarter. Our third touchdown was on a seventeen yard pass to Ed Merino, and the scoring was rounded out by two field goals from Fred Marlin, the second one regaining the lead for us briefly during the closing minutes of the game. Both of our fullbacks, Donnelly and Markoff, had a big day, with 192 yards between them, a key factor in the big edge we held in statistics at the end of the game. We had learned a bitter lesson, but once would be enough. Marlin boots for narrow lead, Though SMU was a subject to forget The guys on the bench would like to help Still numbed by the SMU game, the team traveled to Norfo ' k and the annual Oyster Bowl game, with the first and second class in attendance. We were to play lightly regarded VMI, and at the pep rally that week, we vowed to smash the Keydets to help recover our injured pride, and to prepare our- selves for upcoming Pitt. However, the Keydets soon showed that they would not allow themselves to be a door mat, and shocked Navy found itself with only a 70 lead at halftime. and that only as a result of a Keydet mistake in which Fred Marlin was allowed to recover the football from his own missed field goal attempt after it had been batted into the end zone by a VMI back. Navy returned fired-up from the dressing room, and the third quarter saw us put two touchdowns on the scoreboard, the first includ- ing a great 45 yard effort by Pat Donnelly, following a pass from Staubach, which set us up on the five yard line. However, during the fourth quarter. VMI came charging back for two touchdowns itself, and Navy had to hang on to win. 21-12. We were all glad to win. but both the team and the Brigade learned the valuable lesson of playing our games one at a time. For his aggressive line play and alertness following the missed field goal, Fred Marlin was awarded the Melvin T. Blassingham Trophy as the outstanding player of the game. . the Oyster Bowl brightened the Brigade ' s spirits NAVY 21 VMI 12 Navy found the yards hard to come by ..• i ■ i Staubach struggles to get a pass off aEr jcp. . Following the VMI game, the team and the Brigade both knew that spirit must rise, and the team must toughen up if we were to beat Pitt, ranked third nationally, and start our own climb to the top again. The team took the matter in hand by declaring Pitt the start of a new and difficult season, and with these thoughts, we all knew that we must regroup and reunite, and prove to the country that we had the best team in the nation. With the first appearance of the team on the field, the capacity crowd knew we had this spirit, and before the game was over, Pitt felt it, with a 24-12 score strongly favoring Navy. Pitt did a good job of stopping our ground attack, but in doing so they sacrificed pass defense, and Staubach ruined them by completing 14 of 19 passes, including 7 big ones up the middle to end Jim Campbell. The first score of the game, and Fred Marlm ' s fourth field goal of the year, was set up as Captain Tom Lynch of Navy intercepted Mazurek ' s pass and returned the ball to the Pitt 24. This was typical of Navy ' s alertness on pass defense, as Navy players intercepted Pitt passes four times, demol- ishing the Panther offense. Pitt was not allowed to score until late in the fourth quarter, but by then the game was decided, and Navy was tops in the East. A good stiff arm means more yards HN t i 4 •7 " !

Hey fellows, look at me I ( The second game of the new season brought on the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame, and it was played in South Bend, the heart of the enemy territory. This game was also a chance to gain revenge for a bitter loss the year before to the Irish in the midst of a downpour. The tradition of bad weather continued as the crowd was greeted by rain, snow, sleet, and hail, but the results were far different, as Navy overcame a 7-7 tie at the half to sock the Irish 3514. Instrumental in this defeat was fullback Pat Donnelly, who could not be con- tained this day as he scored two touchdowns and gained 127 yards. In addition, Roger Staubach shattered George Welsh ' s record of 1348 yards gamed during the 1955 season as our quarterback raised his seven game total to 1420 yards. The big difference was a tremendous third quarter, during which Navy could do no wrong, as the team scored three touchdowns, includ- ing a key pass interception and runback by Gary Kellner. The eighty mids present were wild with joy, much to the consternation of some sixty thousand Notre Dame fans who were watching the " Fighting " Irish lose to Navy by the biggest margin ever. With this game, Navy rose to the number 3 national ranking. started our climb back to the top. NAVY 42 Our traditional rival brought tension but little competition.. MARYLAND 14 A highlight of the 1963 season was the return of arch rival Maryland to the schedule. The week pre- ceding the game was filled with tension, as rumors of proposed strikes on the yard by Maryland students filtered in, and on our part, a force-in readiness was organized to combat such strikes. However, the Mary- land forces were almost as big a fizzle as the Maryland football team, with neither one mounting much of an offense. Navy, with outstanding play inspired by the return of Maryland " transfer student " Darryl Hill, scored easily and regularly, while the line continually dumped Terrapin quarterback Dick Shriner for long losses or incomplete passes. Roger Staubach tied a season pass completion record of 94 completions, while Kip Paskewich provided the most exciting play of the game with an interception and return of a Shriner pass for 76 yards and Navy ' s third touchdown. The last score of the day came as Bruce Abel led the team in a scor- ing drive which was completed with an eight yard run by Jim Ounsworth. Once again, Navy climbed another notch in the poll rankings to the number two spot, just behind Texas. ¥ dry Navy tackle Ounsworth around and in for the touchdown Helping an old friend miss a pass NAVY 38 DUKE 25 In the most exciting, yet unbelievable, game of the year, Navy and Duke put on a wild offensive showing during the first half of play, with both teams scoring practically every time they had the ball, and then following halftime, during which time both teams adjusted their defense, the scene shifted to a grueling defensive battle largely in Navy ' s territory which would not be decided until two minutes before the end of the fourth quarter, when Johnny Sai would break loose for a 92 yard touchdown run. Navy had held a 31-25 half-time lead, but this last touchdown was needed before anyone dared pre- dict a Navy victory. The key to the game seemed to be the depth and better conditioning on Navy ' s part, as our hard hitting line was finally able to break Johnny loose for the all important score. This was the second touchdown of the day for our speedy halfback, with other touchdowns coming from Staubach, Markoff, and Sjuggerud, and a field goal and five extra points coming from the toe of guard Fred Marlin. The victory was all the sweeter because it ended a nine year hex which Duke had had over Navy in football, including the Blue Devil upset of the 1960 Navy team. Navy was now ready and waiting for Army. Duke ' s Glacken prepares for more bruises £ Lw and in a wild game with Duke, Navy became ready for the really big .game of the year The big game, after being postponed one week out of respect to our late Commander-in-Chief, Presi- dent Kennedy, finally arrived; and with it the high point of our year was possible, our opportunity to Drive-for-Five. Spirit was high, for we knew that not only the Army game was at stake, but in addition, the winner of this game was to receive an invitation to meet number one Texas in the Cotton Bowl, an oppor- tunity we did not intend to pass up. However, from the beginning kickoff and the first few minutes of battle which saw the most rugged blocking and tackling ever, it was soon apparent that this was no time to be thinking about anything but that other team on the field. Army drew first blood as Navy found it difficult to contain Army ' s end sweeps, and with eight minutes gone in the first quarter, the score became Army 7, Navy 0. Navy rebounded, but just three plays later, Army intercepted a Staubach pass, and found them- selves in scoring position. At this point, Navy got mad, and in doing so, they settled down and tightened their defense up. The cadets managed a first down, but then fierce line play forced Waldrop to fumble, and Nick Markoff made the big recovery. Navy now mounted an offensive, and after seeing a pass play to Gary Kellner score a touchdown and then get called back, the team became even more determined, and follow- ing a good run by Johnny Sai, Pat Donnelly bulled over from the four, and with Marlin ' s conversion, the score which would stand at the half was 7-7. ARMY 15 NAVY 21 Going in for a loose ball 9%£toUfe$d« Johnny Sai springs past Army Army had this play figured SB® Closing in on Stichweh Navy kicked off to start the second half, but Army was forced to punt after a series of downs, and Stau- bach came in to try and change the tie which existed. Making good use of fullbacks Donnelly and Markoff, he guided the team to its second touchdown, which was punched over by Donnelly with seven minutes left in the third quarter, and the score stood Navy 14, Army 7. Army tried unsuccessfully to move the ball, and Navy once again took over. Shortly after the be- ginning of the fourth quarter, Pat Donnelly, for the third time of the game, charged around left end for six more points, and with Marlin ' s third extra point of the day, the score stood a comfortable 21-7. Sud- denly, however, Army returned to life, and they made a slow but steady movement down the field for their second touchdown. Looking ahead, they tried and were successful in scoring the two point bonus, and the complexion of the game suddenly changed. Army used an on-side kick, and much to the grief of Navy fans, Army quarterback Rollie Stichweh recovered with six minutes remaining. Aware of the new threat, Navy ' s line stiffened, making Army struggle for yards. With about 90 seconds to go, Army had moved to our seven, but in the remaining time, they could manage only five yards in three downs against our line, and the game ended on our two, a 21-15 victory for Navy. After controlling the ball close to 62 percent of the game time, Army ' s ball control strategy had failed to beat Navy ' s high powered offense, and much to the dismay of Paul Dietzel and Shirley Povich, Navy had driven for five, and was bound for the Cotton Bowl. Rugged determination on both sides ' Drive for Five " became move than a slogan . it was a way of life . . . and a winning way! The line holds in the closing minutes m 4 %tW r » New Year ' s Day was a beautiful day in Texas, and at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas excitement was high as number one rated Texas prepared to meet number two rated Navy. This was the day the Navy team and all Navy fans had long awaited, but before the game was but minutes old. the Texas team proved to their fans how eagerly they too had looked forward to this meet- ing, and with amazing ease, they proved that they rated the crown of the number one team in the nation. Texas began their destruction of Navy ' s bid with a passing attack which caught our defense unaware, and was good for a touchdown in each of the first two quar- ters. To complement his fine passing show, Texas quarterback Duke Carlisle also ran for a third touch- down during the second quarter which would give Texas a comfortable 21-0 lead at the half. The best showing of the half for Navy was in the closing minute as Heis- man trophy winner Roger Staubach was able to sustain a passing attack which ended on the Texas 13 yard line as time ran out. Navy looked better during the second half, but even so, Texas scored a fourth touch- down, and it was not until the fourth quarter that we managed to complete our first scoring driv e, with Staubach sweeping right end for the final two yards. An attempted two point conversion pass then failed when Jim Campbell caught the ball just out of the end zone. The remainder of the game saw rugged play, with the ball passing back and forth, but the game had been decided, and although the Navy team never quit trying, the day was not to be theirs.

FOOTBALL It was an excellent year for Navy ' s fall sports, and the 150 lb. football team was certainly no exception. Coach Jack Cloud ' s Mighty Mites, led by team captain Ed Bush, gained the Conference Championship along with an undefeated season, an honor which carries with it the title of " National Champs. " Unfortunately, there is no bowl game to pit our strength against the other 150 lb. teams located on the West coast or in the Texas area. The season started off with a big win against defending National Champion Army. It was hard to get up to a perfection peak for the first game, but Coach Cloud insisted upon it and the team rose to the occasion by trouncing Army, 13-0. The next foe, Columbia, proved to be no obstacle, but Rutgers was a different story. The strong, quick, " Red and Black " team that held the league lead at the time fought tooth and nail for nearly three quarters before they allowed a score that was set up by a pass interception deep in their own territory. The game ended with Navy a cold and tired 6-0 victor. The following week, the Tigers of Princeton proved to be very stingy, giving up only nine points to a little blue team that averaged 25 points per game. In this instance, the offense was hampered by penalty trouble which cost them several touchdowns. It was an inspired Pennsylvania team that first scored upon the 150 ' s " Zanka-ized " defense, and they did it in the first five minutes of play from a screwy " I " formation offense. However, this insult was avenged by a fired-up blue team that went on to score 55 points. The last game of the season was to be a grudge match. Navy took its revenge on the Cornell 150 ' s for beating them two years in a row. Starting with the first play from scrimmage, a touchdown run through the middle. Navy pounded " Big Red " with everything they had; and they didn ' t stop until the final gun had ended the 1963 football season. 150 Pound Football Staff: (right to left ) Lt.

Teamwork, skill, and desire are ingredients coaches seek to field such a team, but truly a great deal more made the 1963 Navy soccer varsity the finest in Academy history. Coach Glenn Warner began with a few returning lettermen and the usual squad of inexperienced ballplayers. Yet, somehow this team was destined to be different. From among the rough edges emerged a strange and powerful team spirit spurred by the premonition that " this was the year. " What players lacked in skill, they replaced by " wanting it. " What the team lacked in finesse it replaced by " hustle and guts. " a simple phrase which became the team motto and the force behind the spirit which over- whelmed Maryland and smashed Army, 4-0. Still, the Brigade seemed only to remember the Bucknell game and that third quarter against Maryland, so the words of outside left. Paul Daulerio, " Let ' s show them what we got, " became a quest of every player; and " show them " this team did. Under the fiery leadership of captain and All- South fullback " Butcher " Christie, and the inspiring drive of " our favorite garbage man, " Myron Hura, Navy took an 11-0 record to Rutgers to meet Army in the semi-finals of the national championships. Supported by 100 mids who out-cheered 400 kadets, the team produced a hard fought 4-0 win and two teams of N star winners— further proof of the depth of the team. Then Navy took a final bid against the legend of St. Louis and the NCAA title. Tears streaming down his face, All-American Karl Kaeser fired the team with his German victory chant and started what was to be the last game for such greats as Christie, Kaeser. Ray, and Young. Eighty-eight minutes later St. Louis had shown why it was considered the nation ' s best, but although Navy had not won, in spirit Navy had not lost. Tears were shed in evidence of the emotional strain of this game. This team had fought its heart out. Every person in the stands, every player on the field, knew that here, in Navy ' s squad, had been a great soccer team. First row (left to right): Coach Glenn Warner, M. Mitchell, M. Evans, M.

However, in the two weeks that elapsed between West Virginia and the Pittsburgh meet, team captain Jim Howard whipped his team back into the win column with the defeat of Quantico Marines in a practice meet. Then, in the next three weekends, Navy quickly upped the season ' s record to 4-1 by de- feating Pittsburgh, a highly rated Georgetown University team, and both St. Johns University and New York University in a triangular meet in New York City. Tra- ditional bugaboo, Penn State, invaded the thinclads home territory on October 26 and set the Navy squad back for its second and last dual meet loss oftheseason. Arch rival Maryland forced the harriers back into win- ning form on a cold and rainy November 1, as Navy came out on top in a " 4.1 mile dash " that saw Mary- land ' s top runner set a new course record, followed by three Navy runners who also broke the old course record. The Heptagonal games, November 8 in New York, were next on the schedule, and Navy placed a respectable third out of ten teams, and ahead of Army for the first of three victories over the Black Knights in the 1963 season. William and Mary was Navy ' s next victim on the home course. In this race, Youngster Greg Williams led the squad to a 23-38 victory by setting a Navy record for the five mile course of 25 minutes, 15.5 seconds, only 1.5 seconds off the all-time course record. It was back to New York on November 18 to participate in the IC4A Championships where Navy finished tenth out of thirty-one competing schools, and handed Army defeat number two. Now, only the big one was left, the dual meet with Army on November 23. Even though the meet was postponed until Novembre 30 due to national tragedy, the Navy harriers were determined to make it 3 for 3 for the season, and 6 for 6 over the past two seasons. Army ' s outstanding senior, Bill Straub, took first place, but he was followed by Greg Williams, Bob Sermier, and Forrest Horton in second, third, and fourth places, and Don Hackett and team captain Jim Howard in sixth and seventh slots to seal Army ' s fate for an- other year. The score ... a sound 22-33. Consistent strong running from captain Jim How- ard, Don Hackett, Bob Sermier, Forrest Horton, and Greg Williams and solid fall season support from Bob Starkey, Lynn Wegner, Jim Koons, and Gary Dimmig led the Blue and Gold of Jim Gerdes ' to a record of 7-2 and another fine season of Navy cross country.

After 18 years, Coach Car- nevale suffered his first losing season with a record of 10 wins and 12 losses. The season did, however, have its bright spots. After opening the season with a definite victory over Baltimore University, the Navy cagers split a road trip, beating Manhattan and losing to Pennsylvania. Navy next toppled Gettysburg, and then dropped two close ones to Princeton and Hof- stra to go on Christmas leave with a 3-3 record. Fol- lowing Chirstmas leave such reputable teams as Georgia, Georgetown, Long Island University, and arch- rival Maryland fell victim to the Navy five. This year could be termed a building year for Coach Carnevale with only one first class, Captain Woody Vaughn, hold- ing down a steady starting position. John Mahoney starred throughout the major portion of the year with first classmen Bob Davenport and Bruce Terwilliger frequently contributing the needed push. Prospects for the future are bright indeed with seven returning let- termen to form the nucleus. Top rebounder Chris Red- dington and top scorer Bill Radcliffe, along with Gene Parchinski have gained much valuable experience this year. Together with other sophomores Ralph Mitchell, Frank Smith, Bob Bandy, Doug Law, and Roy Bell plus juniors John Kretchting, Mark Rein and Larry Mack, Navy can look forward to a big year coming up.

The best meet of the year was against Harvard, whom Navy beat for the first time since 1943. The victory over Princeton was also a high spot in the season. An indication of the toughness of the competition was that the team lost to three teams by a total of 7 points. Outstanding in- dividuals were team captain Michael Collins in the sprints, along with Dave Hunter and Andy Hogg, while Buddy Wier and Les Hesleton held down the distance events. Backstrokers Bill Fries and Tim Beard were constant winners in that event. Fries also led off the backstroke leg of a fine medley relay while Beard was first man in the individual medley. Competition in the breaststroke was very close, but the season ended with Chuck Parish swimming the medley relay, while Dallas Clarke and Bob Johnson swam the 200 yard event. Johnson also swam the individual medley. Doug Morris was number-one in the butterfly, swimming both the medley relay and the 200 yard relay, and occasionally taking a leg in the freestyle relay. Divers Tom Newell and Mike Chapman, who won many appreciated points, rounded out the list of standouts. As is the trend in competitive swimming, the season closed with new USNA records in eight of ten events. Seated: (left to right) Coach John Higgins, T. Ward, C. Wright, T. Newell, M.

After early apprehension about the strength of the Navy team, the grapplers visited the Coast Guard Academy Tournament and returned with the team trophy, thus serving notice that they were ready for a good season. Under the tutorage of Coach Ed Perry, the Navy matmen. led by captain Dave Carey swept aside Hofstra. a good Cornell team, Temple, and VPI with impressive scores, and this year of rebuilding looked very bright. Then to the dismay of everyone, a skin infection hit the team, particularly Dave Carey, and that week Navy dropped its first match of the season to Syracuse. In the following match, stung by the defeat of the previous week, Navy thumped the always great Lehigh squad 20-11. This triumph was followed by the defeat of Maryland, our state rival, and the wrestling team had reached the pinnacle of suc- cess for the 1963-64 season. The Navy squad had suddenly become the team to beat in the East and unfortunately, the last two dual matches nearly changed the complexion of the entire season. Penn State, at University Park, handed Ed Perry ' s boys their second defeat. This was followed by a disappointing 14-14 tie with Army, and so ended a fine dual-meet season, slightly blemished in its close. Navy sent several individuals into the EIWA tourn- ament with a good shot at the individual championships, and of these, Gerry Franzen ' 65 took the 177 lb. championship for the second year in a row, while Wayne Hicks ' 66, who spotted a perfect 9-0 record for this season, took the 137 lb. championship.

Six of nine starters, led by Ail-American team captain Ray Frey and Eastern Champion runner-up John Langdon, were returning let- termen from last year ' s squad which finished second in both the Eastern and National Collegiate Champion- ships. After fighting to an 11-10 lead in the opener, Navy went on to suffer its first defeat in fifteen dual meets to national champion Cloumbia, 16-11. Navy ' s star was Tom Toczek who swept to victory in his three sabre matches. Against Princeton, Navy captured its first victory of the season. The epee team headed by Bill Benson and John Flynn was outstanding. After overwhelming Brooklyn College, Navy collided with NYU. Navy tied the score thirteen all and then captain Frey won the last match in magnificent fashion to give Navy the victory. Navy then proceeded to outclass its last four opponents in preparation for the Eastern championships at the Academy, at which Navy cap- tured the team title over several fine Eastern teams. Navy ' s contention for national honors this season was also do in part to the rapid improvement of foils- men Ellis and Fluhrer and sabreman Wilson. C.C.N.

On 6 December the Navy racketmen defeated in order Wes- lyan, Amherst, and MIT. The following day they chalked up two more victories by downing Dartmouth, and Trinity; then on the last day of the trip they defeated Fordham to return to the Academy with a 6-0 record. The first of two defeats for the season came at the hands of Princeton as Navy lost 6-3 on the winners own courts. However, Navy came back to win their next five consecutive matches; defeating Dickenson, the Univir- sity of Pennsylvania, Adelphi, Seton Hall, and Williams. Navy went into the final match of the season against Army with an 11-1 record while Army posted a season record of 11-2. However, Army proved to be the stronger team as they downed Navy 6-3, extending their winning streak against Navy to three straight. Although the sea- son ended somewhat gloomily by losing to Army, there were, however, several bright spots throughout the sea- son, one of which came as Trident Scholar and team captain Clark Graham brought honors to Navy by win- ning the Maryland States Singles Championship, the second year in a row that a midshipman has won that tournament. Another surprise that came was the strength and depth added to the team by tennis player John Owens (9-2) and youngsters Steve Abbot (11-1), Bob Emery (11-0), and Bob Spooner (10-1). The pros- pects for next year should be even better, for there will be seven of these lettermen returning. First row: (left to right) J. Bishop, A. Spurway, C. Burgess, C. Graham, D. Lacey, J.

This is evidenced by the fact that the Academy range record was broken twice this year and one of the teams that beat them was the 1963 Na- tional Champions. Against Coast Guard, the team broke the rec- ord with a score of 1459, and then later in a practice match with Johns Hopkins they fired a 1461, a feat which they dupli- cated later in March to become the top team in the NRA sec- tional matches held at Navy. This years team was led to its victorious season by three first class, Web Wright, Ken Long- way, and Mike Caputo. All of these men had a match average over 288 and Web Wright was selected to become a member of the 1964 All-Navy Rifle team which will represent the U.S. Navy in matches throughout the country during the summer and culminate in the National Matches at Camp Perry, Ohio in August.

They were led to an eight and one season by a group of first class (Tom Najarian, Bill Moscrip, Mike Quaintance, and Ed Hire) and a youngster (Ed Engle). A sec- ond class, Tom Harding, suc- ceeded in breaking the range record for a shoulder to shoul- der match when he fired a 291 against the 2nd Army Marks- manship Unit team in a practice match, the old record having been held by R. T. Vosseller and set in 1957 in this same match. The team of Harding, Moscrip, Quaintance, Najarian, and Ja- cobi broke the old team record, set in 1958 against MIT, by seven points with a score of 1419. This year the NRA sec- tionals were held at the Naval Academy, and the Navy No. 2 team won the championship, followed closely by the Navy plebe team giving an indication of things to come, and then the Navy No. 1 and No. 3 team. After graduation, team captain Tom Najarian will report to the Officer-in-charge of the Navy Rifle and Pistol teams to be- come a member of the All-Navy team. 2nd Team All-American Ed Hire Navy Opponent Eddie Leonard ' s 1376 1362 Univ. of Mass. 1380 1298 M. 1.

GYMNASTICS This year ' s varsity gymnastics team was captained by the consistent and hardworking Sandy Monroe. The record, which cannot be ignored, indicates that it was a bad year for gymnastics at Navy. It is true that the teams only had two victories in seven meets, but it was in many ways a good year. According to Coach Chet Phillips. 1961 Coach of the Year, " The team this year was the most improved from the beginning to the end of the season of all the teams he has coached in twenty-five years at Navy. " At the beginning of the season the team average per man was 7.4 and through constant effort and teamwork it was increased to 8.5 out of a perfect 10.0 This year intercollegiate gymnas- tics experienced a new method of scoring. Rather than giving points to an individual for a particular place in an event toward a team total, the top 3 out of 4 scores in each event were counted and added into a team total, low score being dropped. In this method of scoring the competition, each team member naturally wanted his teammate to get the highest score possible, since all points went into a team total, eliminating individual recognition. Partly due to the new system and mainly due to the leadership ot tne team captain, Navy ' s 1964 gymnastic team developed and exhibited more team spirt and comradeship than any previous Navy gym team. Graduation will take half of the varsity squad, including Sandy Monroe, Larry Silver, Jerry Siebe. Dave Martin, Dick Murphy, Barry Hooper, Pat Malone, Bill Kelly, Bob Jones, and Dave Tuma. All of these men are to be commended for the fine job they did this year, and their loss will only be eased by the equally fine upcoming plebe team which had an unde- feated season this year.

Despite the coach- ing of Jim Gerdes and Al Cantello, two of the finest coaches in the country, and the outstanding perform- ances of Bill Gleeson (35 lb. weight), Mike Berkowitz (shot put), Greg Williams (Mile run), Mike Brown (pole vault), John Wright (1000 yard run), Courtland Gray (60 yard high hurdles) and John Sai and Kip Paskewich (60 yard dash). Navy lost two meets they had wanted most to win, the Army meet and the Heptagonal Cham- pionships, both by less than two points. The record book, showing records in 8 out of the 13 events set or equalled during the ' 64 campaign stands silent wit- ness to the achievement of both the coaches and the team. But if we cannot say that the ' 64 team was the most successful ever, we can say with great pride that the solid achievement of our trackmen, their dedication, courage, and continued aggressive spirit in the face of bad luck and heartbreaking accident shall remain a lasting example to and of the Brigade.

Head Coach Tony Rubino and assistant coach Emmerson Smith very ably took the sixty-odd aspirants, and although having limited time, produced the usual excellent semi-final and final matches. All the fighters showed considerable boxing skill, but aggressiveness seemed to determine who won the letters. In the semi-final of the 127 lb. class, Glen Hodge ' 64 outpointed Lee Gooding ' 66, and Gerald Hausmann ' 64 defeated Dick Emmerson ' 65. The finals saw Hodge lose to Hausmann, who again combined good boxing skill with an aggressive style to fight his way to his " N. " Art Parrott ' 64 slugged it out with John Pagett ' 65 to win the 135 lb. class. Jim Will iford and Mario Baltazar, two youngsters, were the losers in the semi- finals. The 145 lb. class was taken by Bill Lifsey ' 64 win- ning over plebe Pat Martin in a scrappy match. Martin defeated John Thopson ' 65, and Lifsey whipped Ed Adams ' 66 in their respective semi-finals matches. Ken LeBrun ' 66 won the 155 lb. class over Frank Pinegar ' 67. Tom Ellison ' 66 and George Wilson ' 65 (last years champion) were semi-finalist losers, but still looked good. In the 165 lb. class, Bob Senecal ' 64 defeated classmate Jim Roberts in a bruising bout. Bob Sheppard ' 65 and Steve Erikson ' 65 advanced to the semi-finals before losing. John Summa ' 65 won over Bruce Welch ' 64 to take top place in the 175 lb. class. Last years winner Bill Spadafora ' 66 and Russ Buckley ' 64 were the semi- finalist losers. The Heavyweight title was taken by Dick Merritt ' 64 who startled quite a few people by being the most aggressive boxer in the finals. He won over Al Motta ' 66. Joe Rudy ' 64 and Wayne Hanley ' 66 lost out in the semi-finals. Kneeling: (left to right) W. Lifsey, A. Parrott. G. Hausmann. Second row: Coach Smith, K. LeBrun, B. Senecal, J. Summa, R.

Advice to the next heavyweight champ A happy Bob Senecal SPRING SUPPLEMENT 1961+ LUCKY BAG SUPPLEMENT Navy Lacrosse Team Beats Army for National Championship 582 Too much cannot be said about the ' 64 lacrosse team. Supposedly a building year for the Blue and Gold, Coach Bilderback and team-captain Pete Taylor led what was generally considered as one of the nation ' s best and deepest lacrosse teams in history. Built around the strong senior defense of Jim Campbell, Tom Long, and 63 ' s outstanding defense All-American Mike Couglin, the team was a picture of speed, hustle, and ability. Sophomore attackmen Jim Lewis and Owen McFadden coupled with junior Tom Morris made our attack as formidable as any in the country, and a seemingly end- less string of midfielders made it nearly impossible for any team to run with Navy. Outstanding in the midfield were Brian Lantier, Stu Overton, Win Peterson, Pete Taylor, and Dick Stark. Not to be forgotten by those who followed the team is the stellar play of little goalie Dennis Wedekind. Denny ' s heroics saved many a game for Coach Bilderback and made for many enjoyable mo- ments during the season. The first part of the ' 64 season proved to be no challenge at all as we hurled past Rutgers, Washington College, Princeton, and Duke. On April 25, we journeyed to College Park and there came out on the long end of an 11-7 score. The game was highlighted by the attend- ance of a large contingent of the Brigade and the out- standing play of Jim Lewis. No further problems were met in the season until Army. The Big Blue annihilated Virginia, Hopkins, and Baltimore University in that or- der. The trip to West Point was the crowning success of the season. An excellent team effort brought back to Annapolis a 9 to 4 victory and along with it an unde- feated season and Navy ' s fifth consecutive national championship.

The only real goal not attained this season was a first place in the Easterns, a meet in which Navy placed second. Leading this fine team were three first class, team-captain Tom Flory, Jim Seely, and Craig Burbick, and they were ably backed by several underclass to provide the necessary winning margin on each sunny weekend of the spring. Many long hours of practice were in back of this suc- cess, and much credit must go to Coach Williams for the all-important tips which helped our team regularly bring in the lower scores. 586 Off to another win Craig blasts out Navy Opponent Princeton 7 Seton Hall 7 Wm.

Some of the less knowledgeable midshipmen at the academy know you as a person who goes out for what they would call a soft sport. To them, you are afraid to sweat and strain in a man ' s sport, and you prefer to just linger around on roomy decks enjoying the warm sun. To you and the many others who have set foot aboard an ocean racer, there is satisfaction in dis- regarding what the few inexperienced land lovers say about this sport. Each afternoon— rain, snow, or shine, you find yourself scrambling from your room to dis- embark on the very first launch leaving to take crews to their respective yawls. Once aboard, the sails are raised and you point the bow of your seaworthy craft towards the Bay. The " roomy " decks for soaking up the wonder- ful sun are soon found to be cluttered with line and sails which are either going up or being readied for stowing below. And then, the air is filled with a strong breeze, the yawl takes a sudden list, and you find yourself not only fighting to keep the boat going at her maximum speed, but just to stand up as well. Sails are tended with straining hands as though there were ten mustangs at the end of each line. To add to your enjoyment, there is a possibility that there could be a slight shower. Finally, your grip seems as though it has no effect and the deck becomes slippery with a thin layer of water. To you this is pure enjoyment and this thrill of working with the unknown and ever powerful sea brings a thrill unmatched elsewhere, and this is your reward. DINGHIES The varsity dinghy sailing team has enjoyed one of its most successful years ever. Led by captain Butch Lenhard and his crew, Dave Parry, during the fall season the team won the Team Championship of the Middle Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association as well as the War Memorial Trophy Regatta. Backing up Butch was a team of great depth; Bill Key and crew Tom Nicarico, Wayne Humphries and crew Ed Hannum, Tom Hawk and crew Bob Champoux, and Don Kern with his crew, Paul Friedman. Coach Ed Berger had even higher hopes for a successful spring season. The Navy team gave definite substance to these hopes as they outsailed thirteen other competitors to win the Spring Invitational Regatta. Other highlights of the spring season were the Service Academy and MAISA Championship Regattas. By winning the MAISA Championships, Navy can repre- sent the East Coast at the North American Collegiate Championships, to be held at Vancouver, British Co- lumbia late in June of 1964. - BASEBALL Navy opened its 1964 baseball season in the same fashion as the " spring " weather— with a cold streak. Initially, Coach Duff couldn ' t get the right combination of pitching, hitting, and fielding to come up with a vic- tory. However, after a successful spring training session in Florida, the team returned with more experience under their belts and more practice at playing together. After a heartbreaking 3-2 loss to Penn, the team started to click. They broke the ice with a 3-2 win over American University. Then followed a 14-3 smashing of Lycoming and a masterful 2-0 shutout turned in against Cornell. Up to this point Navy had been playing without the services of the members of the team that were out for spring football — namely Skip Orr and Roger Staubach. At the termination of spring football, Navy was at full strength. However, this didn ' t seem to phase Yale, who romped to a 14-5 victory, or Georgetown, who won 6-5 in 10 innings. However, Navy gave a preview of good things to come with four double plays— two started by the shortstop Kirby. Bob Dougal, whose hot bat had been providing much of Navy ' s power, raised his average to almost .300 to lead the hitting. After Rider squeaked by on a 1-0 victory, Navy excited the fans with some truly big league baseball. Down 3-2 in the ninth inning against Pitt, catcher Ed Burroughs hit a home run with a man on to defeat the Panthers 4-3. The next team to fall was Navy ' s arch rival, Maryland. Roger Staubach, limping with a pulled muscle, came to bat with the bases loaded, cracked a tremendous drive to bring in the winning run. Next fol- lowed a successful road trip against Columbia and Princeton. Finally, following a 5-2 victory over Penn State, Navy completed the season with a 21 loss to Army. The game was a pitching duel for 8 innings, with Army finally scoring two runs in the top of the ninth for the winning margin. 590 Navy Opponent Vermont 4 Syracuse 3 8 Dartmouth 4 14 Seton Hall 4 6 Penn 2 3 American U. 3 2 Lycoming 14 3 Cornell 2 Yale 5 14 Westchester 5 6 Harvard 2 7 Brown 5 2 Georgetown 6 8 Rider 1 Pitt 4 3 Maryland 5 4 Baltimore U. 7 4 Columbia 7 6 Princeton 7 1 Penn State 5 2 Army 1 2 7I7 This was our year for building CREW Heavyweight and 150 Pound After a promising start against Columbia, the Heavyweight Crew went nearly two months before win- ning again. It was a disappointing season for a team which had visions of the Olympics during preseason practice, but Captain Jim Norvell and his team never quit trying and gave it their all every race. The 150 ' s had a much better year than their heavier cousins, winning against Princeton, American University. Howard, and Georgetown. Led by Joe Prueher and coached by Lt Ralph Christy, the team featured underclass gaining experience for future suc- cess. 592 It wasn ' t our year 593 TRACK The track team met with varied success dur- ing the spring season depending on the ability of the Navy track men to complement the highly successful field men. Highlights of the spring included Mike Brown ' s masterful 16 foot pole vault in the Penn Relays, M ike Berkowitz ' s hefty 61 ' 3 " toss of the shot, and Chip Jackson ' s 162 ' 4 1 2 " throw of the discus in the Army meet. Bill Gleeson captained this hard working team and helped to maintain the high level of spirit which characterizes all Navy teams. Coach Gerrdes had the team up for a victory over Army, but Army ' s distance runner. Bill Straub was too much for Navy ' s Greg Wil- liams, and Straub ' s sweep of the distance events gave the big victory to Army. 594 Navy Opponent Quantico Track Meet Third Place Perm State 88 61 Pitt 109 31 Maryland 64 76 St. John ' s 86 62 Heptagonals Third Place Army 69 80 If it i)f Some outstanding performances TENNIS The tennis team, led by firstclassmen Corky Graham, Norm Radtke, and team-captain Bob Teall showed great improvement from the previous year, winning 11 and losing only 6. How- ever, among these six losses, the last two were to rivals Maryland and Army, matches which Navy wanted badly to win. However, Coach Pot- ter ' s team could be proud of fine play for the overall season for they fought to win every match and they were much respected by all opponents. Backing up the first class with spir- ited play were secondclassmen John Ownes, John Nelson, and John Lin- dahl. A winning tradition at Navy has been reestablished by this year ' s squad, and Army along wit h other next year ' s opponents had best take notice of rugged times ahead with Navy on the tennis court.

True, there was much to this Spring that made it more worthwhile. There were uniforms to have striped with a half inch of gold or Marine whites to be tailored. There were life insurance and wedding rings to buy, after, of course, you had purchased the hottest thing on four wheels you could find. There was no more study hour inspection or weekend liberty limits. Spring was a time for gay spirits. We held one of the biggest beer parties ever seen in these parts for all the first class and their drags on Mayo Beach. Dancing to the music of Bo Diddley and eating supper on the beach made the event turn out to be great fun for all. The Navy Relief Show played to packed houses in April as officers and civilians in the command staged " Captain ' s Paradise " . Lt Mike Jasperson did it again as he played the leading role to perfection. Spring, too, brought the last round of parades, made more enjoyable this year when it rained on two Wednesday afternoons. First class lasts came faster and faster as June Week neared. June Week With exams out of the way, we raced for our cars and five days of pre-graduation leave . . . . . . and returned in time for the start of our final June Week. We were elated to find that the review would be taken by our beloved Rear Admiral Kirkpatrick and we were proud when Tom Swartz made " Uncle Charlie " a member of the Class of 1964. Our class presented to the Academy a picture of the Admiral with his " You can do anything you set your mind to do " advice. But the real thrill for all came as a surprise when Under Secretary of the Navy Paul Fay, speaking for President Johnson, presented Radm Kirkpatrick with the Distin- guished Service Medal. It was a truly great honor for a truly great man. m Mka ■m 600 Friday evening was held the traditional picnic for choir members, the chapel Sunday School staff, and the altar boys. The event was held at the North Severn picnic grounds and transportation was by boat. All who attended had a great time. 601 Saturday was a day for beating Army and relaxing. For the first class with their own wheels and no forma- tions to make, it was a day for enjoying yourself. Drag sailing on one of the yawls provided a pleasant interlude. Sunday marked our last march together to chapel followed by a chance to show our parents our rooms. That afternoon the Popular Music Concert featured Judy Henske, the Rooftop Singers, Stan Rubin and his Tigertown Five, and upstaging them all in quality and showmanship were our own Anchormen. During the evening the Glee Club performed to a standing room only crowd in Mahan Hall. 603 From this line may one day come the CNO. Monday morning seventeen of our classmates were honored at the Commendation Parade when the Super- intendent, Rear Admiral Charles S. Minter, Jr., pre- sented them with Letters of Commendation for their out- standing leadership during their four years at the Academy. Vince O ' Neill steps forward to receive recognition. 605 The Color Parade Tuesday afternoon the main attraction of June Week for the general public took place under clear skies and a hot sun. The Seventh Company, after two heart- breaking years of finishing second, came through under the command of Ron Benigo and swept colors so thoroughly that there was no doubt as to who had won. Ron chose Miss Julie Yates as the 1964 Color Girl. She reigned as the unofficial Queen of June Week and on this bright Tuesday afternoon transferred the Colors from the Ninth to the Seventh Company. Ron received the usual reward. " Nineteen men absent, sir! " " Sixty-five men absent, sir! " ■ 6 t i. «f ■». ' • r .i, . • ' H - ' ' :f Jt 607 Social highpoint of the week occurred Monday eve- ning when Admiral and Mrs. Minter held a Garden Party for the first class, their parents, and drags. Despite intermittent rain, the atmosphere of the evening couldn ' t have been lovlier or the Minters more cordial. The Garden Party was followed by a Parents Dance in Me- morial Hall. m irz ■ T • I Ji ' » J kki ih r. 608 Tuesday evening the first and second class attended the tradi- tional Farewell Ball around the Re- flection Pool while the third and fourth class were in Dahlgren Hall. The evening was clear and a little cool, but it mattered not to the first class whose thoughts were all on the morrow. 609 GRADUATION At long last, the day for which we had waited four- teen hundred and thirty eight days arrived. Dawning clear and hot, graduation day got started with the first class wearing optional " uniforms " to breakfast. We formed in Dahlgren Hall in carefully prear- ranged order clutching the steaming caps we had pre- served since plebe summer. In crisp white service with first class boards on for the last time and Ensign boards or Second Lieutenant bars hidden underneath, we marched to the Field House. The Honorable Carl Vinson, Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee, gave a significant com- mencement address on The Navy of the Future and then, led by Walt Kesler, we became Bachelors of Sci- ence. One hundred eighty seven graduated with distinc- tion and seven hundred and thirty eight were just happy to graduate. Happiest of all was Dick Robbins who raised the anchor. General Wallace Greene, USMC, Commandant of the Marine Corps, administered the oath of office to the seventy three midshipmen to be commissioned second lieutenants in the Corps. He was followed by the Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral David McDonald, who swore in the new Ensigns. Tom Dames of ' 65 led the underclass in " three cheers for those about to leave us " and then our own president, Tom Swartz, proposed " three cheers for those we leave behind us " . A wild toss of caps into the air and it was all over. All over that is except for mother and sweetheart who put on the new shoulder boards or gold bars. Sixty four had earned the right to start in the Navy, now we have to earn the right to stay there. 610 k I 611 J 612 G. G. Zech, J. H. Dalton, T. J. Drucis, W. W. Kesler, T. H. Stick, J. B.

Carey ACTIVITIES The greater part of the daily life of a midshipman is necessarily taken up with classes, studies, intramural sports and, of course, sleep. But there has developed an increasing interest in activities outside the normal routine to which the men devote their own " free time " and of which they can be justly proud. From publishing the Log Magazine to debating for the Forensic Activity or from designing Christmas Cards to singing in the Glee Club, these activities, clubs, and organizations afford an opportunity to have fun and relax, to exert our individuality, to express ourselves, to develop our talents and perhaps most important, to gain valuable experience working with other people. Thus, the extracurricular activities aid in the development of the well rounded individuals which the Academy endeavors to produce, and this section is an attempt to recognize as many possible of those men who chose to take advantage of the program. SERVICE and SUPPORT . . . organized for the purpose of fur- nishing services and support to the Brigade or to other extracurricular ac- tivities. CLASS OFFICERS Our Class Officers were elected at the end of second class year to lead and represent the Class and to bind it into a unified and lasting group. It was their duty to formulate Class policy, to coordinate interclass efforts, and to stimulate Class spirit. The " First Class Bulletin, " a bi-weekly newsletter to our classmates, was initiated by our Class Officers to keep everyone informed of social events, suggested improvements, and future plans for ' 64. The long hours spent by Tom, Joe, Jim, and Ken in conducting Class business and administration resulted in the successful year that we enjoyed as firsties. Jffl The Brigade Honor Committee served as the key organi- zation in the implementation of our Honor Concept. The Committee began the year with the job of interpreting a re- vised Honor Concept and a new concept of freedom of aca- demic discussion. Besides handing down decisions on con- troversial problems, it heard all of the cases referred to it by the Class Honor Committees. We are especially proud of the members of the Brigade Honor Committee for the fine job that they did in making " honor more than just a word among midshipmen. " BRIGADE HONOR COMMITTEE RING and CREST COMMITTEE Plebe year had just begun when the Ring and Crest Committee began work on the ' 64 Class Crest, and that fall our class adopted a design for the crest. The committee then care- fully selected a company to make our ring and the following spring the crests arrived ... in time for June Week. Working closely with the company which made our rings, the committee set about making sure that all of ' 64 ordered and received the ring they wanted. In April of second class year our cherished rings arrived, well in advance of the Ring Dance so that any last minute changes could be made. The com- mittee has served us well and the Class of 1964 can be proud of its efforts. RING DANCE and FAREWELL BALL COMMITTEE Planning for the Ring Dance, 1963, got into full swing in the Fall of 1962 when the theme " Tea House of the August Moon " was chosen. From there decora- tions were designed, programs and invitations ordered, schedules for individual pictures organized, and bower arrangements and corsages planned. The important day finally arrived and the festivi- ties for the evening began with an excellent dinner in the Mess Hall. The couples then moved to the Library- Assembly Hall area and the nervous waiting for the Ring Ceremony began. The Reflection Pool was a beautiful backdrop for the decorations and the familiar Japanese lanterns blended in well. The Naval Academy Orchestra pro- vided excellent music both in the Mess Hall and dur- ing the dance. The evening was cut short by an untimely rainfall, but this gave all an opportunity to return to their cottages and drag houses and reflect on a memor- able Ring Dance. In support of one of the very best Navy football teams ever, the 1964 Brigade Activities Committee put forth a maximum effort to keep the spirit at its peak all season long. The pep rallies and pre-game stunts were some of the best seen at Navy in recent years. The ideas for the " Drive for Five " sta- tionery and T-shirts came from the cre- ative minds of the BAC. Ably directed by Chairman Cap Pinney, the commit- tee continued work after the football season by sponsoring a number of events, among which were a dart-throw- ing contest and a string-saving contest. This year ' s BAC was indeed active. BRIGADE ACTIVITIES COMMITTEE BRIGADE HOP COMMITTEE The Brigade Hop Committee, composed of thirty members representing all classes, does a fine job each year improving the Hops for the Brigade. With more planning, a more conscientious effort, and the better quality of the hops, the attendance of the Brigade was seen to increase at each Hop. Responsible for pro- viding the orchestra, decorations, refreshments, and for escorting the receiving lady and hostesses, the Com- mittee has served the Brigade well all year. The increased number of costume and part theme hops this year and the excellent handling of the June Week program demon- strated the resourcefulness and imagination with which the Hop Committee has always served the Brigade. PROTESTANT CHAPEL CHOIR Many midshipmen, faculty, and visitors alike acclaim the Chapel Choir Requests for singing engagements ar- rive often from all across the nation. Highlighting the year is the presenta- tion of Handel ' s " Messiah " with the women of Hood College for which ticket requests far outnumber the seating capacity. Leading the service each Sun- day from the front of the Chapel, the Choir presents thefr anthems with beauty and dedication, especially the favorite closing hymn, " Eternal Fa- ther. " Professor Donald C. Gilley is responsible for the fine musical in- struction of the Choir while choir presi- dent L arry Benson provides the mid- shipman leadership. ANTIPHONAL CHOIR Each Sunday morning of the year the Antiphonal Choir is responsible for a large part of the Protestant Chapel service. The fine job they steadily do in singing their responses and anthems is the result of many hours of practice and a tribute to the members of the Choir and their director, Professor Donald Gilley. The Choir is appreciated outside the Brigade too, as evidenced by the fact that it makes two or three trips a year to sing in various places. It has further shown its abilities in its annual presentation of music in the Chapel with the Goucher College Girl ' s Choir. The more than one hundred voices of the Choir inspire all who hear them, whether it be at the regular Sunday service or some other secular event. It is an organization of which the Brigade may be justly proud. CATHOLIC CHOIR At the early hour of seven-fifteen each Sunday morning during the year, one can find a group of one hundred twenty men headed for the Academy Chapel. This is the Catholic Choir which, under the able leadership of choirmaster Joseph McCuen and president Mike Hewitt, provided a musical background to augment the beauty of the Mass. Having members from all four classes, the Catholic Choir is composed of men selected from those who volunteered during their Plebe Summer. Weekly rehearsals and several trips in the Winter and Spring offered a pleasant break in the normal rigors of Academy routine. NAVAL ACADEMY CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION The Naval Academy Christian Association is an interdenominational organization of the Brigade of Midshipmen. NACA meets twice monthly. Among this year ' s outstanding speakers were Jim Vaus, Executive Director of Youth Development, Dr. W. Robert Smith, head of the Department of Philosophy at Bethel College, Bud Collyer, well-known television per- sonality and Bill Wade, quarterback of the Chicago Bears. Through the NACA, the Maryland chapter of the American Bible Society presented Bibles to those Midshipmen of the graduating class who desired them. The NACA published the " Guide-on, " which combined articles written by midshipmen and chaplains. Weekly Bible studies were held in company areas and on the Brigade level. NACA members also participated in various activities of the Officers ' Christian Union, including the annual Spring Leave con- ference. The NACA was led by three elected officers and twenty-four company represent- atives in conjunction with the Chaplains. NEWMAN CLUB The Newman Club, the Roman Catholic organization of the Brigade, has as its general purpose the development of the moral and religious life of the Catholic midshipmen. This year the Newman Club, under the direction of Father Cahill and Corky Graham, has sponsored a lecture series at each of its biweekly meetings. For those who wanted to do something a little extra, a chapter of Our Lady ' s Sodality was founded to give all interested Mids additional religious guidance. With the help of Tom Toczek, John Alich, and Mike Foley, a volunteer pro- gram of working with retarded children was initiated. These activities have added up to a very productive and instructive year. CHEERLEADERS The USNA Cheerleaders this year were a crew of ex-football players, crackpots and even a couple of ex- cheerleaders . . . believe it or not! Their form wasn ' t always the best but their spirit and ability to extract the brew- ing spirit of the Brigade was seldom equalled. This year they successfully broke the tradition of being a bump on a stump and the spirit of the 4100 was never higher. They brought a new twist to pep rallies and ball games, coming out with various disguises and skits which led to greater interest and long awaited enthusiasm. Well done, JOKERS! CANNONEERS The Naval Academy Cannoneers made their first appearance at the 1959 football victory over Army, and since then have become a permanent fixture at ball games. In the Spring of 1963 the Cannon- eers aided in the opening of the Balti- more Civic Auditorium, by providing live cannon fire for the 1812 Overture presented by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. The crew wears exact replicas of the first midshipman uniform of 1845, and the cannon is one of five 1863 Dahlgren Twelve Pounder Boat Howit- zer ' s in existence. It is fired with a standard service charge of one pound of black powder, and all firing pro- cedures are in accordance with the original John A. Dahlgren manual found in the Naval Academy library. GOAT KEEPERS Keeping Bill XV pointed in the direction of Navy ' s drives was the job of Cyril and Bill and, later, Buddy Coleman. Bill, the symbol of the fight- ing spirit of the 4100, is committed each year to the care of two deserving firsties from the junior varsity. Boasting a 9-1 win-loss season and a post season bowl bid, Bill-the-Goat can feel proud of himself. The Reception Committee is charged with hosting all visiting athletic teams at the Naval Acad- emy. It is the committee ' s respon- sibility to ensure that such items as housing, meals, athletic facili- ties, and other needs of the teams are instantly taken care of in order to facilitate a pleasant stay at Navy. The committee also provides an opportunity for its members to make many new friends and to keep abreast of life on other col- lege campuses. Another task of committee members is to act as general guides and PIO officers. as the number of questions each visiting team can think up is ra- ther amazing. It is an interesting and rewarding experience for those who enjoy meeting people, and no one has yet seemed to mind missing those Saturday noon meal formations. RECEPTION COMMITTEE PUBLIC RELATIONS COMMITTEE The Public Relations Com- mittee is an organization primarily concerned with sports coverage at the Naval Academy. For major sports, such as football and bas- ketball, it provides spotters and other assistance for the press, while handling complete cover- age of other sports. The PRC works in close coordination with the sports publicity office and the sports publicity director, Bud Thalman. Sports announcing is an- other activity of the club which provides interesting opportunities. Outside of the field of sports, PRC provided escort service for the press during June Week. The Art and Printing Club provided all the various Brigade activities with printed posters to advertise their events and affairs. This year, as always, the Club did most of its work during the Fall when Navy football was THE Bri- gade activity covering the Yard with four thousand posters for the Army game alone. Although the club normally relied on a nucleus of a half a dozen mem- bers, when the big games came up, as many as fifty people pitch- ed in to help print pesters. These made a great contribution to Brigade spirit and to the success of the team. ART and PRINTING CLUB AUTO CLUB The purpos e of the Auto Committee is to enable the first class midshipmen as a group to finance and purchase cars at the most reasonable rates possible. Whereas the special rates on loans are only available until a few months after graduation, any graduate is entitled to purchase a car at midshipmen prices at any time in the future. The 1964 Auto Committee was headed by Dick Shapack and had as its Secretary, Bill Sargent. There were three subcommittees to facilitate the handling of speci- fic problems. The Financial Vice Chairman was Bill Kelly, the In- surance Vice Chairman was Chuck Wilde, and the Foreign Car Vice Chairman was Dave Tornberg. Each company in the Brigade had first class representatives on the committee and through them in- formation on cars was dissemin- ated to the Class. PROFESSIONAL . . . organiz ed for the purpose of en- hancing an individual ' s academic, pro- fessional, or religious knowledge. FOREIGN LANGUAGE CLUB FRENCH CLUB The six foreign language clubs at the Academy shared active programs during the year including, for each group, regularly scheduled meetings, ban- quets and movies. Short films and interesting guest speakers brought the customs and traditions of vari- ous foreign lands to life. Midshipmen who had par- ticipated in foreign exchange cruises also shared their experiences with club members by showing slides and talking about their visits. Foreign language banquets gave club members a chance to converse in one of six languages including French, German, Italian, Por- tugese, Russian and Spanish. Many were called upon to deliver short after-dinner speeches and found these even more of a challenge than those required in English. During the past year, the various programs of the language clubs provided interesting opportuni- ties for improvement of both language ability and un- derstanding of foreign peoples. PORTUGESE CLUB 4 « 4 $ $ 9 9 RUSSIAN CLUB SPANISH CLUB ill I! « ' GERMAN CLUB ITALIAN CLUB NAFAC Every year the Naval Academy sponsors a conference dealing with United States policy in a particular area of the world. This year ' s conference was on the European Community with close to seventy-five colleges and universities from all over the country par- ticipating. They discussed the different aspects of United States policy associated with each country or sub-area on roundtables, which were moderated by experts in European affairs. Guest speakers from the State Department and various embassies gave the conference first-hand information to consider. A set of resolu- tions was drawn up by each roundtable and adopted by the entire body as a record of the conference. FOREIGN RELATIONS CLUB The Foreign Relations Club provided Midshipmen interested in world affairs with an oppor- tunity to increase and compare their knowledge. Both guest speakers and presentations by midshipmen made up the pro- grams of the weekly meetings and monthly banquets, though the high point of each meeting was usually the spirited discussion that followed the formal presenta- tion. Midshipmen from the club also represented the Academy at foreign affairs conferences held at other colleges throughout the country during the year. The cli- max of the year ' s activities was the club support of and participa- tion in the Naval Academy For- eign Affairs Conference. FORENSIC ACTIVITY Coupling the art of the persuasive phrase with skillful interpretation of current events, the Naval Academy debate team continued to make a name for itself in inter- collegiate tournaments. Often in competi- tion with over twenty-five schools, midship- men earned numerous awards. In an in- creasingly complex environment, knowledge of world affairs and the cogent expression of ideas grow in importance. An awareness of the practical aspects of forensic activity makes the countless hours consumed in the preparation and refinement of affirmative and negative cases well worth while. This awareness, matched with the traditional mid- shipman zest for competition, accounted for the continued success of the debate teams during the past year. SAILING Sailing is a contest of man and ship against the wind and sea. To be a competent, seafaring man requires a dedication to education and training which is provided, in part, by the activities of the Mid- shipman Sailing Squadron. Every day of the fall and spring, in fair weather and foul, midshipmen raced their boats on the Severn and the Chesapeake, gaining practical experience in every phase of sailing from marlinspike seamanship to racing tactics. In the summer, midshipmen crews took their boats out into the Atlantic on either the Annapolis to Newport race or the Newport to Bermuda race. These activities helped to develop skill and confidence which will be of benefit in future naval careers. SHIELDS SAILING TEAM The Shields sailing team began their first season in the fall of 1963. The five 30-foot racing sloops were donated to the Naval Academy by Cornelius Shields through the Paul W. Shields Foundation. Captain Jeff Weed and Gary Jones were the first class chosen by Coach John Sterling as two of the five skippers. The other skippers were Todd Sanchez, Cris Pliger, and Mike Ewald. All five soon proved their racing skills and seamanship. In the first race, in which all five boats were entered, all five finished in the top eight. With many civilian and inter- service academy races planned for the spring, the team expects even better future performances. YP SQUADRON There is one organization within the Brigade whose sole purpose and objective is to give the midshipmen an opportunity to familiarize themselves with various aspects of naval operations afloat. This is the YP squadron, and its members may be seen hard at work every afternoon. Three times each week, the crews are underway, and the other two afternoons are sometimes spent in classroom drill and indoctrination. The YP squadron is the " professional fraternity " here at the Academy, and each crew is a unit in its own right. A first class- man is in command of each vessel, and the remainder of his twenty man crew is made up of midshipmen of all classes. This year ' s schedule included trips to Washington, D. C, Norfolk, Virginia, and other operational cruises. Competition among the crews was high, with each crew dis- playing its proficiency in tactics, seaman- ship, piloting, communications, and engi- neering. PUBLICATIONS . . . organized for the purpose of pro- ducing traditional publications and mementoes of midshipmen. LUCKY BAG The success or failure of the Lucky Bag staff this year can be seen in these pages. Starting in November of Youngster Year, the 1964 staff put in many long hours producing the largest college annual in the world, and we feel . . . the best. We interviewed photographers and publishers, took pictures and wrote copy, lost sleep and enjoyed the whole process. We sweated out making ends meet financially as we watched the number of advertisers mount ever so slowly. In the end we produced this book, and we leave it to you to judge how well we did. LOG The 1963-64 Log, celebrating 50 years as the " Mid ' s Magazine " in the fall of 1963, continued in its tradition of highlighting brigade and academy activities. Published fifteen times during the academic year and with a bi- monthly press run of 8000 copies, the Log required the efforts of a combined staff of some eighty midshipmen. Fulfilling jobs ranging from layout to photog- raphy to advertising, the different staffs attempted to give those inside and outside the Academy an accurate picture of the ever changing Academy scene. This was no small task, with a series of deadlines every two weeks! However, all those directly or indirectly connected with the Log will agree that it was a very worthwhile and rewarding job. Originally called the " Log Splinter " and actually published by the " Log. " the current " Splinter " magazine has, in its fourteen years of circulation, evolved into an activity of its own. The " Splinter " provided the Brigade with the inside picture on intramural and varsity sports as well as the many social events and happenings in the Yard. Cartoons, jokes and weird stories rounded out each issue and made the bi-weekly publication a favorite of all members of the Brigade. TRIDENT SOCIETY The Trident Society is the sponsor and financial manager of most of the literary organizations at the Naval Academy, including the Trident, the Log, the Christmas Card Committee, the Trident Calendar, Reef Points and the Photo Club. The Society ' s officiers initiated many new ideas this year such as their widely publicized BEAT ARMY Poster and Decorations Contests. Per- petual trophies were awarded to the winners of these contests. The Society also sponsored its annual Photo, Art and Literary Contests, in an effort io bring out the hidden talents of the Brigade and to promote a competitive spirit. It must be said that the Society ' s motto for this year was " progress! " REEF POINTS Fewer authors have ever writ- ten with such assurance of immedi- ate success and popularity than have the editors of Reef Points. This handbook, sometimes referred to as the Plebe ' s " Bible, " is carefully re- edited each year by the Second Class, and is then printed in time for issue to the new Plebes in late June. In an effort to keep pace with our rapidly changing Navy, Reef Poi nts has undergone considerable change itself in the last several years, and more changes are in- tended for the years to come. TRIDENT SOCIETY This year Trident Maga- zine marked its fortieth year of publication. Originally a maga- zine devoted to short stories and other brief literary pieces, it soon picked up and handled sports activities as well. From there, it evolved into the maga- zine it is today, including not only fiction, but a wide variety of professional articles written by midshipmen and an occa- sional outside author. Trident is now truly the " Professional Magazine of the Brigade of Midshipmen. " , 1 tt 1 fA p » jm1 is 1 ' I ♦ ■ 5. i m 9L dH n jit TRIDENT CALENDAR CHRISTMAS CARD COMMITTEE Every year the midshipmen of the Christmas Card Committee design and issue contracts for the Brigade ' s Christ- mas card. All details are carried out by the midshipmen, with the exception of the actual printing of the card. This endeavor brings to light the creative ability of midshipmen, coupled with a business mind and determination. The 1964 TRIDENT CALENDAR was the product of the combined work of seven members of the Class of 1964. Because the calendar has always had the largest circulation of all the Naval Academy publications, extra effort was made by the staff to provide the highest quality photographs, cartoon and cover. The inside was designed with two purposes besides its basic use as a calendar. The photographs that were included gave per- sons not familiar with the Academy the opportunity to see what Midshipmen do and how they live. The cartoons provided a light touch. Since the TRIDENT CALENDAR is mailed each year all over the world, it truly must serve as a good ambassador for the Naval Academy . . . and its competent staff saw to it that the 1964 edition did just that! ENTERTAINMENT . . . organized for the purpose of pro- viding entertainment for midshipmen and civilians. WRNV With a reduction in hum and an in- crease in coverage, the Brigade ' s closed cir- cuit AM broadcast station became " The High Spot at the Low End of the Radio Dial. " A little new equipment, some new talent, and lots of new programming all joined together to make WRNV a more effective Brigade In- formation Center for news, sports, weekend rides, and classified sales. The " Pop Music Concerts " sponsored by WRNV highlighted the year; the " Study Hour Music " broad- casts highlighted the day, and both aided the overall effort aimed toward entertainment and information for the Brigade. GLEE CLUB In 1944 a group of interested midshipmen formed the original Naval Academy Glee Club. The group soon gained the interest of the Brigade and with the help of professional leader- ship has attained a national reputation as an outstanding musi- cal organization. The Glee Club is composed of opproximately one hundred midshipmen, each auditioned by its conductor, Chief Joseph McCuen. In recent years the Glee Club has performed widely and currently enjoys a full schedule. It has made several television appearances and regularly visits other college campuses. Some of its appearances include performances at the Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City, the Azalea Festival in Norfolk, the National Press Club in Washington, and the New York Athletic Club. CONCERT BAND With a typical big band instrumentation of five saxes, four trum- pets, four trombones, piano, guitar, bass and drums, NA-10 performed at Academy hops throughout the year. They also took three trips to surrounding schools with the choirs and the concert band and pro- vided, as well, background and featured music spots in the annual Musical Club Show. Combos from the band played at smokers and informals. Sparked by a desire to play, NA-10 ' s total membership of twenty five rehearsed and performed a repertoire of nearly two hundred fifty selections, ranging from o ld standards to modern cha-chas and pro- gressive jazz. This year ' s officers were Jere Mackin, leader, Skip Gunther, assistant leader and Jack Dambaugh and Gary Carle, business mana- gers. Right at the heart of Brigade spirit is the USNA Concert Band whose stirring march music and now famous rendition of ' Gaite Parisienne ' are well known to the 4100, both in the messhall and at pep ral- lies. These talented musicians presented two concerts during the year, with a spec- trum of music ranging from pop to classical. The Concert Band provided a wonderful op- portunity for musically talented Midshipmen to play good music on a great variety of in- struments. NA-10 THE ANCHORMEN Formed during the rigors of Plebe Year 1960-61, the Anchormen rapidly developed into one of the most popular musical groups at the Academy. Swinging o n stage, an in- strument in each hand, they delight- ed audiences in the past year as they always have, with their folk rendi- tions and showmanship . . . bring- ing on applause that just didn ' t want to stop. Almost as popular on the outside as at the Naval Academy, the Anchormen made numerous tele- vision appearances and represented the Brigade at a variety of civilian colleges. Their secret of success is that they have fun . . . and when they do, so does the audience. One of the youngest musical activities at the Academy, the Spif- fys enjoyed a busy season of music-making this year. Providing popu- lar music for the Brigade at a wide variety of events was their business and many a weekend at USNA was enlivened by their presence. Under the leadership of Jim Clayton, the group expanded its music to include many old favorites as well as the latest in popular music. The officer representative, Captain E. M. Knoff, USA, gave great assistance to the group throughout the year. The eleven Spiffys played at afternoon informals, costume hops and even a Plebe Tea Dance. They travelled as well to several other colleges to present their special variety of popular music for dancing . . . always enjoyable. THE SPIFFYS IL THE MASQUERADERS This year the Masqueraders presented " The An- dersonville Trial, " written by Saul Levitt. This is the trial of the Commandant of the famous Civil War prison camp. Andersonville. The play was directed by Norm Ray, 1 c. and produced by Richard Foley, 1 c. The production, presented in early February, was the Mas- queraders ' first attempt at serious drama in several years and was enjoyed by everyone who saw it. Combining an exceptional supply of talent, com- edy, humorous satire and good music, the 1964 Musi- cal Clubs Show was a great success. The show had something to please everyone in the audience. Con- tinuity was provided by the theme of the show, " A Night of Television, " featuring a particularly entertain- ing Western scene. All work on the show was handled by midshipmen with the able assistance of the officer representative, LCDR Jones. Director Bob Demchik was well pleased with the professional job turned out by his group and the show was much appreciated coming as it did during the annual Dark Ages. MUSICAL CLUBS SHOW PROPERTY GANG As an outfit whose success depends on not being seen, the Property Gang suc- ceeded in making themselves properly in- conspicuous at USNA performances dur- ing the past year. As the group respon- sible for obtaining and arranging set furn- iture on stage for the Musical Clubs Show and productions of the Masqueraders, the Property Gang demonstrated the need for careful coordination and planning. In the minimum time between scenes their skill and imagination transformed the scene . . . while the members remained as always . . . unseen. Making the heroes look like heroes and the villains look like villains was the job of the Make-up Gang. Requiring plenty of work and much patience, their efforts always added a great deal to shows and plays. JUICE GANG The Juice Gang is a small group which each year provides the Brigade with electrical spectaculars in sup- port of football games, and the annual shows. The Juice Gang also handles all lighting effects for pep rallies, Mas- queraders, Musical Clubs, Hops and provides technical ad- vice and material assistance for the Navy Relief show. Although many man hours of work are put in, the members derived much satisfaction from seeing their projects suc- cessfully completed. STAGE GANG In their backstage workshop in Mahan Hall, members of the Stage Gang designed, constructed and painted the scenery and special effects for the Masqueraders ' plays and the Musical Clubs Show. Completion of the scenery is only part of their job for they mus also set it up on stage and hold speed drills for scenery changes, working closely with the property and juice gangs. The Stage Gang also spent many hours rehearsing with the actors, coordinating acting cues, curtain cues and, in general, handling the multitude of details that make backstage activities run smoothly and quietly. RECREATIONAL . . . organized for the purpose of pro- viding recreation for individual mem- bers. " A7 N " CLUB The " N " Club is a social club whose mem- bership is composed of varsity letter winners at the Naval Academy. Its purpose is to serve the Academy athlete and to assist the Naval Academy Athletic Association. This goal was accomplished in the past year by their sponsorship of social activities for the enjoyment of theose who wear the Varsity " N, " while club members performed various service functions and provided Mason with the Athletic Association. RADIO CLUB Even though the Radio Club spent most of the academic year in its tempor- ary quarters in the Sixth Wing incinerator room, it remained one of the Brigade ' s most reliable links with the outside world. This was the first year that the Club par- ticipated in the Military Amateur Radio Service and it continued to make high scores in world wide operating contents. The club members ' interest in communi- cations and the advancement of their in- dividual skills and knowledge of electron- ics were more than personally rewarding, but will be of great worth to the Navy. SCUBA In 1962. midshipmen were given the opportunity to undergo training at the United States Naval School of Underwater Swimmers at Key West, Florida. It was this training that first sowed the seeds of interest in a scuba club in the Brigade, resulting in the establishment of the USNA Scuba Club. The objectives of the club are to provide a means of requalification for Navy qualified divers, offer a course of instruction in basic sport scuba diving and provide scuba diving recreation for the members. All of these activities were carried on in the past year under the leader- ship of its officers, all Key West qualified divers of the Class of 1964: President Robin B. Cassell, Vice President, James L. Poole, Secretary, Eric C. Woods, Treas- urer, Joseph F. H. Neal. The officer representative of the club was Lt. James E. Shay, USN and the training officer, LCDR Joseph A. Bodner, USN, a member of the board of directors of the National Association of Underwater Instructors.

Wallace 1964 Each year, were it not for the kindness of our advertiser ' s, the United States Naval Academy ' s LUCKY BAG would not be able to be published. As it is, this, the history of our four years at the Academy is the largest publication of its type in the nation. We the staff of the LUCKY BAG hope to present the finest our talent and ability can provide. Through this medium, perhaps the only single " historical unification " of its kind, our joys, laughters and sorrows come to life and stay with us for many years to come. And it is to us to recognize the true gift that these distinguished firms on the following pages have given. I wish to extend my thanks to the many people who have helped to make this book possible and with whom it has been my pleasure to work over the course of the three years it has taken to produce this, the 1964 LUCKY BAG. To Howard and Faith Wohl of Wohl Associates goes thanks for the lay- out and preparation of the book. Lasting gratitude is due to H. G. Roebuck and Son, Inc. for the printing of the book and especially for the way they stepped in in a moment of crisis to assist us. Mr. Harry Horton of Apeda Studios deserves credit for the portrait photography. Particular thanks is due to Lieutenant Maurice F. Tyler, USN, our officer representative, who shouldered a large burden with many problems ably and well. Credit is also due to Lieutenant George Wilkins, USN, who was the officer representative before Lt. Tyler. Advertising sales were handled by Mr. Harry Leventon who did the usual fine job he has been doing for over twenty-five years. But most important of all to the success of this book has been the ef- forts of the dedicated staff with which I ' ve had to work. Giving up liberty and, in more than one instance, their leave time, this group can be justly proud of their contribution. Tl cP dumar?

How can anything so functional be so full of surprises like carpeting, dual armrests, electric clock and such? How can anything so sporting sponge away the bumps like that?

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.

And no wonder. The largest stain- less steel structure in the world, Unisphere is 12 stories high, measures 120 ft. in diameter and weighs more than 700 thousand pounds. Nothing quite like Unisphere had ever been attempted until officials of the Fair brought a drawing to the American Bridge Division of U. S. Steel. Their problem was howto build a Unisphere Only steel- stainless steel for permanence— could do the job. The Bridge Division put its expe- rience and engineering talent to work to solve the problem and proceeded to build Unisphere in record time. And U. S. Steel presented Unisphere to the Fair. In the words of Robert Moses, President of the Fair: " What stronger, more durable and more appropriate metal could be thought of than stainless steel? And what builder more imaginative and competent than United States Steel Corporation? " Dedicated to man ' s aspirations for peace through mutual understanding and symbolizing his achievements in an ex- panding universe, Unisphere is more than just a symbol of the Fair. It ' s a symbol of the progress that steel has helped make possible, just as modern steelsfrom U. S. Steel made Unisphere possible. Steel is truly a part of our world today... and part of the world of tomorrow. When the Fair closes, Unisphere will re- main at Flushing Meadow Park, siteof the Fair, as a permanent landmark ... a one- of-a-kind example of engineering, fabri- cation and construction skill. Unisphere is U. S. Steel ' s way of saying, " Welcome to the Fair. " See you there. mZq United States Steel y " 2 «7 _, ue»»..i»..s. m ' 1961, N»w York World I Fur 19M 19 S Coiponhon.
