From every state, territory, possession, and a number of foreign countries we came with stars in our eyes and dreams in our hearts. This day we left our many back- grounds and made the formal transition from civilian or enlisted to midshipmen, U.S. Navy ... we became the CLASS OF 1966. It did not take long for us to discover that there was a great deal more to becoming a midshipman and a class than merely standing together with our right hands in the air. The next few days set the pace for the next two months. Most important, while learning the " ropes " of life in Bancroft Hall, we began to appreciate and use our time more effectively. We marched, swam, marched, tied knots, marched, learned to shoot, marched, played intermurals, marched, and only on a few rare occasions did we ever slow down. Plebe summer served to make us a spirited, tight-knit class, and with the passing of Parents ' Weekend we were more than ready to " join " the Brigade. If all began here.

Fall is a rough season for sheets. V — ' — ' ' " ' Fall is a busy time for the plebes. The result of many nights work. When the brigade returned we were already a week deep in academics. At first it was like starting everything all over again; " come-a-rounds " , professional ques- tions, and a lot of special attention to personal appearance. Time passed quickly and soon the upper classes shifted their main attention from us to the football field. We ate, slept, and lived football throughout the fall. Our efforts did not go unrewarded, for our " Big Blue " team earned us three weeks " carry-on " with a great 34-14 upset victory over Army. This game was a preview of things to come.

The proof, as usual, is left to the student in math. Once we had chalked up our fourth straight victory over Army all our thoughts turned to Christmas leave. As plebes this was our first leave and for most of us this was the first time that we had visited with our families and friends since June. Who could ever forget that first leave when the snow refused to cooperate with our transportation schedules. Other than weather, the only thing missing was more time— there never is enough leave time! Second semester brought a return to PLEBE YEAR in the fullest sense of the words, what with 100th night just around the corner. But soon the days were numbered and before long we were on the threshold of becoming Youngsters. We had heard a lot about June Week, and we found out for ourselves that it was all true. We finished up June Week and Plebe Year in typical ' 66 fashion with a successful assault on Herndon. " Only three years to go!

While memories of our first June Week were still fresh we prepared for a real taste of clean salt air and deep water, but first . . . there was a little matter of " Green Machine " training. PhibTraAAid was our experience with the U.S. Marines, and one that we will always remember. It was on the battle-scarred beaches of Southern Virginia that we learned to appreciate and respect the tremendous task that the Marines perform for our country. From Little Creek we proceeded to Norfolk, Virginia where we boarded our various, assigned vessels which were to be our homes for the next six weeks. It was not all wind and water as some of us had thought, for work and sweat found their way into our daily routine all too often. Terra Firma was alwavs a welcome sight, especially when it came in the form of Florida, New York (over fourth of July), and Canada— the " natives " were quite friendly at all ports of call. As we neared the end of our adventure we finally could make out the shape of the academy ' s chapel dome in the afternoon haze and knew that we were now full fledged " Youngsters " and that leave was just a few hours away. It was a good feeling! 37 w What a way to travel I Angel ' s roost! Youngster summer?? It looks better from here. Big equalizers. Smolter at sea.

Our new role as youngsters seemed somewhat strange at first, but we found adjusting a bit easier than we had the year before. Ev.en the new grading stystem promised changes in the year ' s academic " strategy " . " Drive for Five " was the by-word throughout the fall, and our great eleven came through with a fine vic- tory over Army, finishing second in the nation. Navy was a very happy place on almost all football weekends. Second semester was a little more down to earth, and many of us found ourselves having to " hit the books " more just to hold the line. Youngster year also held sad mem- ories and the worst was the loss of OUR UNCLE CHARLIE to retirement. We can always be proud of having served under him and with him; truly, RADM Charles C. Kirpatrick was our friend. At the conclusion of our second June Week we marked the half-way point, and some of us took time to compare ourselves with what we remembered about our secondclass squad leaders.

Getting ready for the launch. segundo summer For most of us second class summer meant Pensacola and flight training. It was a new and pleasant experience, for this was the first time that we were treated " almist " like junior officers. Flor- ida, we found, was quite enjoyable dur- ing the summer months; white sands and clear water made the rising mercury seem much lower than it actually was. The real thrill, however, came from actually flying. After our brief but important ground training we took to the air. In our first aircraft, the T-34, we learned what it was to fly " by the seat of our pants. " Terry Reeder as " The Chimp " 45 Actramid formation After the T-34 we progressed to the more demanding and sophisticated T-28 and jet powered T2J. Each step brought with it something new and different, and by the end of our stay in Pensacola we had an accurate picture of what it, nava aviation, was like and what it had to offer. From Pensacola we journeyed to Jackson- ville to get a look at an operational squad- ron. This was also an enjoyable experi- ence. 1 m ■ ' - After-dinner speaking minus the dinner Interesting lecture!? i l-ji. ' ag f jf i ' - if li ;- Second set fly boys. Execute what kind of turn, sir? 47 But the summer had more to offer than just flying. At one time or another during Second Class Summer, we all got a few weeks academic cruise at the Academy. This wasn ' t the most exciting part of the summer, but overall none of us suffered too much from the academic load. Still, summer- time on the Severn wasn ' t very con- ducive to study. pti iiaiussA ' What do you mean, " Stand by to park it " ? i . m si . Mj K s: k A girl in every port.

Trying to make men and midshipmen out of our eighteen " odd " plebes per squad required a real application of leadership, pa- tience, and ingenuity. We all profited from the hard work and the accom- panying fun, and we will remember this as one of our most outstanding summers. Meet Mr. " 1620 " .

The days of " Youngster afternoons " and back-to-back free periods seemed to be something of the past. We couldn ' t find much consolation in athletics either, for we had been known to have better football teams; however, soccer, didn ' t let us down. Christmas brought its welcome break as usual, and once again none of us wanted to return. Trudging back from a great leave to face final exams just never does get any better no matter how many times we have done it before. Second semester was just as rough as first semester had been, but we had a bit more incentive in the Spring. It was about th is time that first class stripes began to take on certain significance, and all of us looked forward to an " exciting " first class cruise, rings, and June Week; plus everything else that goes with being in command of the Brigade.

As usual June Week was full of its yearly flare, glamor, and dreaded P-rades, but this year it took on a deeper meaning to us than it ever had before. The class of ' 65 was handing over the reins, wishing us fair winds, and we were proudly accepting our new responsibilities with determina- tion and the desire to make " our year " the best ever. Our very special day was the fifth of June, the day of our Ring Dance. This was the highlight of our three years on the Severn and a night that none of us will ever forget. For a great many of us the fifth of June will be remembered for certain obligations which we made " above and beyond the call of duty. " There were a lot of new rings worn that night, but not all of them were on male hands. After the final P-rade, and the final notes of, " Hope to H— you never come back " there re- mained only graduation ceremony for the class of ' 65 and the never changing, always exciting, Herndon monument ceremony for the plebes. We were finally first class with only one year re- maining. fi Make shift ring dance. ?t Smile pretty. r -» " w ■• Tp w r ■ ' A fitting feast on our big night. The transition ritual. 59 our l3st summer nier r Our last summer began on a sour note for the long awaited Mediterranean and Western Pacific cruises were cancelled due to the country ' s gold flow problem. As a result most of ' 66 spent first class cruise tied to every pier and dock on the eastern and western seaboards. Those of us who sailed to our newest and beautiful state of Hawaii were envied by many others less for- tunate. Only a few of us were lucky enough to touch on foreign soil. The nuclear power and foreign exchange cruise classmates are very proud of their souvenirs from the countries v hich they visited. The rest of us have to await other summers and other cruises for the chance to cross the sea. To pass the time some of us attended special schools such as fire fighting school and fire control school. Of course these could not take the place of a good cruise, but they were beneficial. Even as " stay-at-home " sailors we found that there was a lot to learn on board ship, and the experience which we gained serving as Jr. Officers should stand us in good stead in the years to come. 63 «■ first class year 65 p 68 As the year wore on, we became ac- customed to our authority as the Brigade responded to the type of leadership even he officers admitted was getting the job done well. In the battalion offices we guarded the security of our great gray home while learning the fine points of inspecting rooms. The long hours of rou- tine were materially shortened by the knowledge of Friday night freedom; some 1 ii ' of us enjoyed a party or two as others contemplated the day when their car would be ready to spirit them away to distant spots in Washington and Balti- more. Whatever the task, from scuba steaks to studying circuits, we tackled it with a spirit of cooperation and common experience that made the end seem that much nearer. we hung on fiercely driving do A n the stretch 72 LiL H tt rcely n And so it ended, with a flurry of intense activity, final exams, and dead week leave. During the past weeks, memories of snow- bound days and watch and hurriedly enjoyed weekends gave way to the freedom of the open road and parties which, from their very intensity, heralded the beginning of the end. Each time we did something or formed in our appointed places became the last time; that knowledge made routine more endurable and pleasure more delicious. Returning from a week of leave, we found each other buoyed up by the thought that the culmination of four years was but one ineffably swinging June Week away. ' . . BMiMmM June week ' 66 This was it, our last June Week. No matter what the weather did, it didn ' t matter, so long as it was clear on Wednesday morning. Friday morning the hum In the mess hall was slightly higher than usual as anticipation mounted. The long lines of shining hardware on hospital point waited patiently for their fearless pilots as we made ready for that first parade. Outside, the crowds of parents, drags, brothers and sisters were growing apace. Excite- ment mounted. Stepping off to the drums, we couldn ' t help marching a bit more proudly and yet, thankful for the end, we smiled our way around Worden Field. Following the long, hot parade, we dashed for the showers, some of us to make ready for our waiting drag while others, the fourth estate, prepared to storm the lofty Herndon. Evidently, the monument proved quite a task for, despite their organized start, the plebes set an all-time record for taking the longest time to top the 3 pep rally and 3 parade 75 the progress of 9L parade ■1 n ' P- ■■ «?

This was also the day the segundoes had been living for, the Ring Dance. Once again the re- flection pool area was transformed into a wonderland of soft lights, feathery fountains and swinging music. Sunday was a day of rest; no parades or formations prevented us from enjoying the benefits of rank as we once again took to our char- iots. The Bay was alive with yawls as we headed for blue water and .■■ !!? slippery symbol. While some of us made for our cottages and a long, cool drink, others headed for a near- by drag house and a few quiet mo- ments with our girl. The evening was a smashing success, filled as it was with the New Christy Minstrels in concert followed by a ripping Spiffy hop. Saturday morning found most of us at the Army-Navy track meet; Army won by the slimmest of mar- gins as our relay team and jumpers fought valiantly to gain the lead. On other fronts, our championship la- 78 i jN f formations couldn ' t top Friday evenings festivities N 1 81 . the thrill of wind and spray. For the musically inclined, the Midshipman Concert Band and the Glee Club put on their traditionally fine performances. Many of us first class decided to brave the rigors of proper etiquette and escort our families to the Superintendent ' s Garden Party. By arranging for each regiment to appear on consecutive nights, the long winding lines of other years were avoided. Once past the receiving line (it wasn ' t really so bad) we found the gardens themselves a maze of roses and shrubs, liberally interspersed by punch bowls, Japanese lanterns, and our friendly Company officers. Excellence was honored at the Commendation Parade Monday afternoon when twenty of our classmates re- ceived commendations from Admiral Kauffman for their continued leadership within the Brigade. That evening there was a hop in Memorial Hall where those of us who weren ' t cottage minded danced beneath the chandeliers to the music of the versatile Chief ' s Band. The big day grew closer. Tuesday morning. Only a few more hours. The awards ceremony went quickly to find us spilling out of the yard for a few hectic hours of liberty as we tried to attend to the many details of graduation, leave, and yes, for some, marriage. There ' wasn ' t a great deal of time for the Color Parade began at 1700-but this was the last parade! We were off with a yell to the shrilling horns of the inimitable Drum and Bugle Corps. Banners flying, we sweated our way along the circuit we had memorized from four years of faithful tromping. Now the cry was " Sixty-seven men absent, sir! " Sixty-six led the Brigade from the field for the last time, a fact greeted with nostalgia by some and a mad dash for the cooling reaches of the reflection pool by others. The refreshing coolness of the Farewell Ball gave no hint of the intense heat that was to be our lot in the morning. We danced away the last hours of our stay at Navy beneath a clearing sky. After the last dash as members of the Flying Squadron and a few hours of sweet, sweet sleep, we awoke to that morning of morn- 82 garden parties aNA ards band concerts and the blue angels v, - » " 5 • . 83 .p-y " ' !jj ' p-i- -f 84 85 gr3du3tion 1966 ' - ' ings, Graduation. With the incentive to have our cars at the stadium at an early hour, most of us had no trouble arriving in time for the ceremonies. A broiling sun, the crowded stands, the distant voice of the speaker, a nodding head, . . . these are all images of graduation exercises at the Academy but they might well be from another college throughout the na- tion. What divorced our graduation from the usual, what made it stand out in our lives, was the unalterable fact that each of us wore the uniform of his country. We stood there in the sun, squinting to see Admiral McDonald and General Green, and repeated the oath to defend these United States. When you think about it, about the com- mitment our class made in the tradition of classes past and future, it becomes a sobering realization that so many young men should risk so much for their way of life. In that context, the mundane aspects of a routine military existence pale into nothingness while the achievement of excellence, both within and without the classroom, assumes an even greater importance. f MkiMi 88 a on this day we assumed new responsibilities toward ourselves and our country 89 gM tJujyjjjjWjjit 90 ■ so we graduated, A ith a cheer, a kiss and a great stride forward.

Doctor A. Bernard Drought was a major initiator and participant in the academic revitalization which took place dur- ing our four momentous years. Under his guid- ance, the elective and basic curricula both ac- quired a new look. The concept of academic excellence, while present before, took on more importance as he set the pace toward an ever higher standard. Realizing the extent of the some- times untapped intellectual horsepower within the Brigade, he sought to give us all a higher goal to aim at while furnishing the proper at- mosphere of diligence in which to attain that goal. No better answer exists to counter the claims of those who insisted that the Naval Acad- emy was a second rate academic institution than the presence of such a competent academic ad- ministrator. 97 1 9 w k [; yi sf!:i 7 ' i an academic setting-the yard The yard is a mixture of many sights, sounds and souls, each of which con- tribute to the whole which comprises our environment. Every building, each de- partment, has its own character derived from the people within it as much as from the nature of the subject taught there. These next few pages capture that char- acter so that, in the years ahead, it may again come to life for us from time to time. 98 rd imi ' -.

The " Bull " Department, as we commonly called it, tried from the very beginning to develop within us an appreciation for litera- ture, European History, Economics, Naval His- tory and research papers. Ah, term papers. Contrary to some opinions, the success of the department in developing and sustaining an interest in those subjects, and a host of fas- cinating electives, as well as producing a goodly number of— er, painstakingly re- searched studies, was considerable. Book reports, a financial paper and, of course, the apex of social development. After Dinner Speaking were additions to the usual number of widely varied reading assignments. The EH G Department exists to quietly counter the allegation that the Academy fails to foster an intellectual climate while effectively proving that it is not necessary to wear jeans and long hair to study literature, politics and social sci- ences. 0 0 1 I d t. 101 Vi " «SfrWSf mathematics department In the buildings by the laundry, where the dear, old theorems dwell, where LaPlace and Angus Taylor gave us —a good deal of trouble. From the intracacies of calculus to the subtleties of differential equations, the AAath Depart- ment succeeded in providing us with the basic tools re- quired in our science and engineering courses. Certainly, we must have tried the patience of many a hapless profes- sor as he heard the question for the seventh time, " But, sir, it isn ' t intuitively obvious to me, so will you explain that Fourier series again, please? " Additional difficulties were posed by the department ' s wayout position by the Severn, often necessitating a lengthy trek around the tennis courts from the eighth wing. Add to that drawback the fact that it was absolutely required to rip up the road in front of the buildings at least twice a year and you have to remember that, in a world of murderous final exams, the Math De- partments were generally the fairest, to place the numbers curriculum in its proper perspective. 105 NA ithin 3 world world of beauty, 3 xA orld of science 107 ita An amazing collection of tubes, boilers, nuclear reactors and wind tunnels, the " Steam " Department bore the brunt of much of the academic revolution. Gone are the days of nuts and bolts engineering; we had to learn the theoretical concepts behind the airfoils and boilers. Through a large array of courses in aerodynamics, structures and advanced thermodynamics we had the opportunity to go beyond the basic training contained in such brainbusters as Strength of Materials and Thermodynamics II. Remember the steam plant analysis First Class year? Of course, a mere glance at the ever present Mollier chart was enough to solve, or multiply, our problems. Darts anyone? Finally, we delved into the intracacies of designing an operational steam power plant; quite a few hours were spent on those analyses during our last overcrowded semester. The final product would never have stayed afloat but the experience we gained juggling entropy and enthalpy will serve us well at sea. i . engineering depeirtment i 109 i 3 1 J communication is the ess icec he essoinee of education Photographs on this spread by Robert de Gast Happy are those who have mastered the science curriculum, for they shall graduate and be called ensigns. Yes, the road to the end of the scientific gauntlet is a long and arduous one but it is well worth the labor. From the first days of plebe chemistry to the final transistors marching steadily to their appointed places in the digital circuits we designed, it was apparent that achieving a background in science would involve some sustained mental exercise. As starry-eyed fourth class, the prospect of becoming fiendishly intelligent masters of the scientific idiom was very real; however, it didn ' t take very many nights watching the lamplight glance from a futile slide rule to convince us that it would be a long hard pull. For those happy souls who spoke the language fluently, the opportunity to range into organic and inorganic chemistry, physical theory and independent projects was gladly taken.

Armed with a bel- ligerent IBM 1620 (EXECUTION IS INHIBITED: END OF JOB) computer and a large number of equally formidable texts, the Weapons Depart- ment faced the ever changing naval weapons scene and tried to give us some idea of what made each system tick. With the addition of several courses in control systems analysis, the possibility of a major in systems design opened new vistas in graduate education. However, with respect to a reference space of Bancroft Hall, the Weapons Department will always remain a set of poles squarely upon the jw-axis. n 4 I 117 lugging books from maury to A ard IN ' MtMOnU, ' -;,, WHIIE i - wm v.yr:.v- .

We learned how to find our way across the ocean with only stars and the sun for road signs; the subject was ab- sorbing even if Monday morning P-works existed to let us know " there isn ' t any partial credit when your ship runs aground. " In addition to military law and the psychology of leadership, we spent many hours on the YP ' s despite snow, rain, fog and broiling sun. At least half the fun was watch- ing the instructor worry as you headed toward the guide at flank speed. During our last two years, the department underwent an addition of several new courses in aerospace environment, oceanog- raphy, and management to give an even greater range of professional knowledge. Let us not forget the culmination of our practical training, OpSea- breeze; a product of frayed nerves, cool thinking, and plain luck, the final exercise of the year taught us a lot about the qualities required for command at sea which is, after all, the reason for line of- ficers.

Nevertheless, the strange sound of another tongue was enough to entice many of us beyond the first, sometimes painful, steps to the higher ground beyond. For those of us who found " Good morning, pal " our maximum requirement, the " Dago " Department was ready to teach us in any one of six different languages. Whether French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, or Russian was your nemesis the latest tech- niques were employed to help gain an understanding; sound labs, tape recorders and impromptu plays kept us in speaking form. Foreign language clubs played an active part in maintaining our interest after the first two years while banquets conducted only in the foreign tongue provided the most pleasant means of acquir- ing command of the language. The smile on the face of a French storekeeper was ample evidence to support VADAA Smedberg ' s opinion that " it is fast becoming a necessity for a naval officer to have a bilingual capability. " nt toNA ard a mutual understanding through study of a nation ' s culture 127 - ' J. T the library A library is the heart of an educational institu- tion, and ours was no exception. With the opening of the main library during study hour in our first class year, the resources of an already much used Brigade library were greatly expanded. Variously housed in Mahan Hall, the book issue building, Griffin Hall and sundry other mysterious places, the main library re- quired an ever vigilant staff to make sure we didn ' t lose ourselves in its vast reservoir of knowledge. Hampered by a lack of space and funds, it still man- aged to provide us with a constantly increasing store of books and periodicals. Many a plebe has found his first reassuring smile behind the desk of the checkout counter while all of us, even if just for those first class Term Papers, have plunged into the recesses of the AAahan Hall stacks. Despite an occasional Form 2 in- stead of a two cent fine, we owe all the librarians a vote of thanks for their unsung patience with our constant inquiries. Bancroft Hall as seen by mid returning from main library 128 the aicatdemic board Seen by few but revered by all, the Academic Board is composed cf the Academy ' s leading educators. Although we were more familiar with its function of determining the status of academically delinquent midshipmen, it also exists to guide and maintain the high standard of intellectual excellence required within and without the curriculum. 129 physicail educsition department 130 r ] It With more than twenty sports available at the Naval Academy, it often seemed as if the " PT " department was trying to put us through each one of them. From the first days of Plebe summer to those welcome golf lessons First Class year, we swam, ran, boxed and chinned our way through an almost incredible number of tests. If it wasn ' t the Four Hundred that had you worried, it was the Forty Minute Swim and the Mile Run. Full of spirit, we cheered on the short man in the boxing ring and the slow man in the ordeal of the mile while that last forty minute paddle in the pool was practically a team effort. Our athletic conditioning provided us with a fine outlet for our excess energy and natural high spirits as we learned the exhiliration of a stiff workout followed by a shower. Working from experience, the " up, out and together " department strived to give us some skill in the carry over sports as well as a working knowledge of what it takes to run an intermural program aboard ship. In the end, it would have been easier to be a bundle of " flab " but it wouldn ' t have been nearly as much fun. 131 mrs. m A great deal has been written about Mrs. Marshall in past years; no doubt, the trend will continue. The fact remains, however, that no matter how much we write, how much we sing, chant, or just plain scream her praises we cannot but fail to give her the recognition and thanks she deserves. Our mom away from home, Mrs. " M " kept us reminded of the femininity we found missing in our environment. No assign- ment was too difficult for her; it was surprising how many p roblems were cured with a quick reference to her black book, a coke, and a cookie. Despite our idiosyncracies, she always wore a smile while carrying a touch of Southern charm into some otherwise dreary days; for her smile, her kindness and her understanding, we join the other generations of midship- men in thanking Mrs. Marshall. mjMi 132 jg m the chaplains I M V: CHAPLAIN REEVES 1 !|_- X irM IgtB - - = -jr j m ■ 1 H ■ IPBJ H H •r ' -n li |E« :1 - " Y Lf " ' ' mSI ' " v CHAPLAIN LINEBERGER CHAPLAIN PROPST CHAPLAIN GREENWOOD 3 FATHER LABOON Always ready in time of need, and eager to help whatever the reason or time of day, our chaplains worked unceasingly to help each of us to find himself and his God. Whether you thought of them as an extension of the minister back home or as a priest in uniform, each of them made you proud to have him as a friend. Amidst the eternal rush of Naval Academy existence, they kept us reminded of the presence of God; the realization was sometimes a calming one. All of us can be proud to have served with them. 133 134 • • • • chain of command 135 .! ' 3P lA $3 ni! ' i« . ' v £i -• ' 53 Firmly built upon the concept of loyalty up and down, the chain of command represents a cohesive, functioning line of authority responsible for the Navy ' s ability to accomplish a given mission under almost any set of circumstances. From the largest carrier to the smallest minesweeper, wherever the Navy goes, the chain of command goes with it, a vital contribution to our effectiveness above, below and on the sea. This section of the LUCKY BAG illustrates the application of the chain of command to each member of the Brigade while it emphasizes those fraternal qualities which make each company something more than a marching unit. ■■■■■■ president President of the United States LYNDON BAINES JOHNSON 139 ROBERT S.

BOCK EARL THOMAS BOWERS VANCE BAKER La Jolla, California From La Jolla, California. Vance came to the Academy after going to the Naval Academy Preparatory School. A good all around athlete Vance lettered in football, bas- ketball, swimming and baseball in high school and went on to become a key player in many company and battalion sports. During plebe year Vance became interested in military parachuting and after youngster cruise he earned his Army jump wings at Fort Penning. Georgia. On Sunday mornings Vance could be found in the back of the chapel singing with the Antiphonal Choir. When it came to dragging Vance always seemed to go for the girls who lived the farthest from the Academy. As a result he was always saving for that big weekend or leave. A n extrovert by nature Vance with his quick wit and good humor quickly met and tried to make friends with everyone. His aggressiveness and many interests will make Vance ' s career, whether long or short, of benefit to him and to the Service. EARL THOMAS BOWERS Delair, New Jersey Tom came straight out of Pennsauken High School and Delair, New Jersey to Navy. An all-state fullback in Jersey, Tom quickly put his football talents to work for the plebe team. Even though he enjoyed a successful season with the plebes, Tom decided to devote full time to the gjin team and has been a still ring specialist for Coach Phillips ever since. In any other spare time, he could be found in the photo lab perfecting his talent for portrait developing. These abilities were channeled into the Photo Club where he served as treasurer. Bowser could frequently be caught dragging on weekends. His attraction to the fairer sex was unique, and in observing the diverse sections of the globe from which his mail came, Tom truly personified the other meaning of O.A.O. A dedicated Navy line man all the way, Tom ' s presence wiU be quickly accepted on any ship of the Navy. THOMAS H. BOCK Lehif hton. Pennsylvania Tom came to the Naval Academy from the small town of Lehighton in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. The rigors of plebe year soon caused him to put aside the memories of easy living and of fishing trips. Except for plebe steam, Tom never let the academics get him under the weather. An enthusiast in any sport, he was always seen pushing for the First Company ' s cross country and heavyweight football team. Battalion Lacrosse and Antiphonal Choir trips took up most of his time in the spring; but whenever you saw Tom around the Academy, you could count on being greeted with a friendly smile and a cheerful " How ' s it going? " Tom ' s boyhood ambition was always to be a pilot, and he is looking forward to the day when he will pin on the golden wings of a Naval Aviator. FIRST BATTALION FIRST COMPANY 155 ROBERT scon BYERLY THOMAS ARTHUR CLARK ROBERT SCOTT BYERLY Washington, B.C. Living all of his life in Washington, D.C., Bob came to the Naval Academy ten days out of high school. Somehow, he never found time to study, but he could recite every electronics catalogue backward and forward. Thus, with the exception of the Academic Departments, Bob always got along well with everyone. His talents were better displayed on the Varsity Gymnastics team, to which he devoted all four years of his athletic ability, obtaining his first N youngster year. His face was a common sight on the football field; not under a blue and gold helmet, but spinning in the air from a trampolet. His dreams include a future stereo system and a peaceful bachelor life in sunny Pensacola. THOMAS ARTHUR CLARK Rochester, New York Coming from the fair shores of Lake Ontario, Tom attended East High School, and then the University of Rochester where he played ROTC for a year. Tiring of 13 years of school Tom worked for a year as a lab technician for the AEC and joined the Reserves. Always fascinated by the Navy, he finally received his appoint- ment on his third try. As a plebe here at Navy, T. A. ran plebe track and played Batt football. Beyond sports his interest has sporadically turned towards academics and consistently towards girls. Missing youngster cruise due to a bout with the USNA hospital surgeons, Tom was quite fascinated with second class cruise but would rather stay on earth where it ' s safer. A submarine maniac, Tom desires to enter nuclear power school and then to the attack boats. WALTER JOSEPH FRITSCHNER Riverside, California Walt, the California Chamber of Commerce ' s chief exponent at Canoe College, made his home in Hayward and Riverside, California before coming to the Academy. With him he brought an abundant portion of the famed " sunshine " , and after a brief period of the Los Angeles- type " smog " of plebe year, this sunshine shown through to be the dominant force of his personality. Plebe year found Walt mostly in water over his bead, not aca- demically, but sports-wise. He excelled as a member of the undefeated Plebe Swim team, had his hands in the making of four pool records, and later was an asset to the Brigade Championship Batt Water Polo team. Young- ster year Walt realized there were other things around Navy than water, and he turned his talents to the drag houses. Never one to be caught short, Walt had a knack for having the most pictures in his locker and receiving the greatest volume of mail. Evidently his athletic train- ing stood him in good stead because he succeeded in read- ing, if not answering, the vast majority of this mail. (A task before which men of less stout heart surely would have given up.) Never a man to slight his grades, Walt somehow avoided the traps of youngster year and placed his name on the Supt ' s list from there on out, adding stars to his collar by second class year. Surely his intellect, ability, and affable personality will be a tremendous asset to which- ever branch of the Navy he chooses. WILHELM MARTIN GABBER Canton, Ohio Bill came to the Academy from Europe by way of Canton, Ohio. He had little trouble adjusting to Navy life and his easy going personality and liberal ideas made many friends for him here. For always looking at the positive side of things. Bill ' s classmates often accused him of liking USNA. A good swimmer, Bill was an asset to his Battalion swimming and water polo teams. His proficiency in German, his original native language which he doesn ' t want to forget, led him to major in that 156 iiN FIRST BATTALION FIRST COMPANY PHflSCHNEIi WILHELM MARTIN GABBER HENRY PETER GIEDZINSKI subject and his quest for knowledge led him to seek a second major in English. He was able to do this while maintaining his average in his other courses. His spare time was taken up with activities of the German club of which he was an officer. With his many talents Bill will be a welcome addition to the Fleet. HENRY PETER GIEDZLXSKI New Britain, Connecticut Ski came to the Naval Academy via the U.S. Navy and NAPS. His love of the sea and sailing led him into the Ocean Sailing Squadron where he earned the distinc- tion of Sailing Master of FREEDOM while only a Second Classman. During the winter months, he was manager of the Varsity Indoor Track Team. In addition to these, he found time for membership in the Catholic Choir, and Glee Club and was his Company ' s representative on the Class Ring and Crest Committee. Ski hopes to spend his post-graduation days " flying sideways " off the end of a carrier deck as a Helicopter pilot. Regardless of his duty, his quiet manner, keen mind and sense of respon- sibility insure him of success. PAUL E. HALBERSTADT JR. PAUL E. HALBERSTADT JR. Charlotte, North Carolina Paul, the Confederacy ' s gift to Canoe U., hails from Charlotte, North Carolina. Paul brought an appreciable amount of southern charm with him as he entered the " school of the sea. " He was always ready for a good time. Mention the word party and you could count on at least one person being available. Paul gets along well with everyone for he has a natural brand of friendliness, a natural good humor. After the usual amount of discom- fort Plebe Year, he settled down and took his place as one of the Brigade ' s Bull Slashes. His interests followed the " wine, women and song route ' with a love for sports cars coming in a close second. Whenever there was a pick-up football game Paul was ready to play. He was a mainstay in the company sports program, playing on the volleyball, 150 ' s, and softball teams. In everything he undertook Paul ' s only effort was the maximum effort. He maintained an on-again, off-again status on the Supt ' s List throughout his 4 years. In his few leisure moments you could find him writing a letter or working on the next issue of the Log. His goal is Naval Aviation and you can bet that his ability to get the job done and his drive to get ahead will make him a valuable asset to that branch of our Navy. 157 FIRST BATTALION FIRST COMPANY JOHN ROBERT HODDY FRANK CUTLER HUGHES JOHN ROBERT HODDY Columbus, Ohio John arrived at the Academy after graduating from Hamilton Township High in Colunihus. Ohio, where he had established himself as an outstanding individual, academically, and athletically. His performance plebe year quickly assumed the same standards. Each fall has found John a member of the Big Blue football team and in the winter, rival fieldball teams consider him one of the game ' s all-time bone-crashers. If athletics are one of John ' s strong points they are certainly not his forte, for academically he is one of the top men in the class and this while completing a stiff nuclear science major. John ' s only problem was Russian but firm applica- tion and joining the Russian Club helped overcome this. John is one of those rare people who possess the gift of universal amicability and he is counted a close friend by all who know him. The Nuclear Power Program is cer- tainly getting a man of great capability and outstanding character. FRANK CUTLER HUGHES Falls Church, Virginia Born in Birmingham, Alabama, Frank came to the Academy after spending a year at the University of Virginia. A top notch student, he constantly maintained a Superintendent ' s List average. Being a Navy junior, Frank has spent a great deal of time on the move, but he has always called Falls Church, Virginia his home. Captain of his high school football team, Frank continued his athletic career as a member of the Plebe football, Plebe lacrosse, and Company football. Although sports were his first love, sleeping and eating ran a close second. Somehow, Frank always managed to bring more food from the messhall than most of us got at the tables. Always kidded for his constantly receding hairline. Frank was well liked by all who knew him because of his friendly personality and pleasant disposition. His willingness to help others not as proficient in academics helped him gain the admiration of many of his classmates. Never one to hesitate when he knows what he wants, Frank is pur- suing a career with the nuclear arm of the submarine and a pretty hometown lass. " This knob goes this way and then (Olliiiiil Vnr PI:„lograi:l,) — «(M|l«» PAUL N. JOHNSON WILLIAM FRANKLIN JOHNSON JR. LEONARD K. KANE PAUL N. JOHNSON Honolulu, Hawaii If you ask Paul, he will probably tell you that he is either from California or Hawaii. This should normally provide enough " sunshine " for anybody, but not for Paul, as can be attested by his many sojourns to the sunshine state of Florida. He ' ll readily admit that it ' s not so much the sunlight but rather the moonlight that ' s captured his fancy; and who can blame hiln? However, this is not the only field in which he has shined. He is an outstanding aU-around athlete, with participation in such varied sports as plebe football, plebe baseball, varsity track, and numerous company sports. All of this coupled with his congenial but conscientious attitude is certain to make Paul a success in whatever he attempts. WILLIAM FIL NKLIN JOHNSON JR. Jacksonville, Florida Fresh out of Bolles Military Academy in Jacksonville, Florida, Billy arrived at the Naval Academy with a long list of athletic achievements. At Bolles he earned himself eleven varsity letters and was selected for both Florida ' s All State football and baseball teams. At the Academy Billy has continued to show his prowess as an athlete. As a " Plebe " Billy played both football and baseball. However as an upperclass he was forced to narrow his field to Varsity baseball and Company sports in order to wager his continuous battle against the Academic Depart- ments. Billy always vowed he would never marry after graduation, but Christmas of his junior year found him engaged to a lovely lass from home. When you didn ' t find him studying or reading a James Bond novel, you could always feel certain Billy was " at the phones " talk- ing to his fiancee. .Nevertheless Billy always found time to help his many friends and classmates in any way he could. Billy ' s beaming personality, pleasant dis- position, and loyalty to his friends will always win him success in the service wherever he goes. LEONARD K. KANE II Livonia, Michigan After a year of study at Michigan State, Len came to USNA intending to pursue a course in nuclear engineer- ing. Although math and physics were his first loves he soon became fascinated with the science of oceanography. An outstanding scholar, he proved equal to the task of carrying two majors and still earning stars. Second class academics introduced him to the Academy ' s com- puter. Virtually a self-taught programmer he rapidly grew to be a familiar figure in the computer center. He found relaxation in sailing and in the spring was a member of the dinghy sailing team. Whether he becomes a submariner or an oceanographer Len is certain to excel in his chosen profession. ROBERT FRANK ROLLAND KANIVE Piorth Platte, Nebraska Coming to the Academy from Nebraska State College Bob put forth the usual effort to become accustomed to the non-coed environment and fell in line for the four years ahead. His immediate interest in sports centered on crew for which he was often seen with that hungry look, neces- sary for the varsity lightweights. Also an avid member of the Chapel Choir he could be found in the choir loft every Sunday. Bob was always available to discuss that certain brand of naval officers, the aviators, whom he plans to join upon graduation. With his sparkling per- sonality and ability to associate with any group of people he will undoubtedly meet with much success and be an asset to the Naval Service. 159 FIRST BATTALION FIRST COMPANY JOHN DAVID KISH RAYMOND JAMES KERWICK Brooklyn, New York Ray arrived at Navy two days after his graduation from Bishop. Loughlin High School in Brooklyn, New York. He hails from Greenpoint, Brooklyn, commonly called " The Garden Spot of the World. " An outstanding swimmer in high school, Ray swam on the plebe team, but his true love for sports centers around water polo, and each spring he can be found in thf natatorium play- ing his heart out. Ray, by his pleasant attitude toward everyone, and his willingness to listen to anybody ' s prob- lems, has secured for himself a place of high esteem and respect with all those who have had the pleasure of know- ing him. As for his future plans, he is as yet undecided, but he will be a great asset to whatever field he chooses. JOHN DAVID KISH SomeTset, Neiv Jersey John, or Woofie as most know him, came to Navy from ROBERT FRANK ROLLAND RAYMOND JAMES KERWICK KANIVE Somerset, New Jersey, where he divided his time between wrestling and studies. His earliest achievement came plebe year when he was an undefeated 130 pounder on the plebe wrestling team. Besides wrestling. Woof spent his time at the Academy participating in Company Ught- weight football and attending company and battalion honor meetings. His ready wit and friendly personality quickly gained him a place in the hearts of his classmates and friends. Academics did not come easily to John but through hard work and perseverance, he managed to come out with plenty of gravy. The common sense and leadership exhibited by Woof during the past four years indicate that he will make a fine Naval officer as well as a top notch aviator. RALPH HALL LIPFERT Exeter, Pennsylvania As the son of a Naval Academy graduate Ralph came ' to Annapolis with a background of travel equalled by few outside the Navy life. As if in spite of the interrupted schooling this entailed, his high school record was su- perlative and he entered directly into the Academy cur- riculum with the same seriousness and dedication. His major was in Engineering, and Naval History always held a special interest with Ralph. Almost immediately Ralph responded to the call of lightweight crew and along with his own development he picked up a membership in the N Club at the end of youngster year. Though not an extrovert by nature Ralph was instead a genuine friend to a relative few who could always count on him to provide a special brand of humor that was almost unique with him. His serious dedication to whatever he does indicates that Ralph ' s career will be rewarding to both him and the Service. DENNIS RAY MANSKAR Canada Park, Calijomia Denny came to Navy from Canoga Park, California. He attended a local California State College for a year and a half before coming to the Academy. Most of his afternoons were spent on athletic fields in his two sports, Varsity 150 lb. Football and Track. In ISO ' s his toe and pass catching abilities made him a top scorer and in track hurdles and middle distance were his events. Time spent 160 . RALPH HALL LIPFERT DENNIS RAY MANSKAR JOSEPH PAUL METRO JR. on athletics did not keep him from doing well in Aca- demics. Ilis four years at Navy have never changed his love for sunny California and he will defend it as the best place on earth. This easy going, mild mannered Californian is as yet undecided on which part of the Navy he will enter. But whatever part of the service he chooses success is sure to follow. JOSEPH PAUL METRO JR. Bhomsburg, Pennsylvania Joe came to the Academy after graduating from Blooms- burg High School, Pennsylvania, and the Naval Academy Preparatory School. His forte was athletics as he won monograms at both schools in track and football. While here, Joe continued to pursue his many interests, assum- ing a diversified extracurricular load. He was one of the standouts on both the Battalion crew and track teams and his bouts with the swimming sub-squad will be a tale long told. In addition, Joe found time some- how to participate in both the Concert Band and The Foreign Relations Club activities. Not a born scholar, Joe found academics a struggle each semester, but con- tinued perseverance plus profuse quantities of extra instruction enabled him to make the grade each time. Joe will always be remembered by his classmates as an even-tempered fellow and a friend to all. His choice of a career is Naval Air and it is certainly receiving an extremely capable man. JAMES THOMAS PETH.LO Lake Village, Arkansas Tom came to the Naval Academy from the delta country of Arkansas where for 18 years he had polished an ability for calling hogs, which was soon applauded throughout the entire Brigade. A true razorback, he could always be found glued to the radio on Saturday nights during the football season listening to his second favorite team. There was never any doubt about who won the game. Either the hall was ringing to the sound of a booming hog call or the silence was deadly. Tom, know to his friends as ' Tiller ' , could always be seen wearing his most prized possession, a red Arkansas JAMES THOMAS PETILLO sweatshirt with a big mean razorback on the front. Tom, recognized more for his athletic rather than his academic abilities, was an outstanding member and contributed greatly to his Company lightweight football team, which was Brigade champs during his youngster year. He was also a standout on the company softball and soccer teams. In other fields, Tom is a talented author, and many of his articles and stories have appeared in The Log. Exhibiting his love for sports, he became sports editor for The Log during second class year. Looking forward to sunny days in Pensacola, Tom has already logged many hours working toward his private pilot ' s license. Tliere is no doubt that he will make an outstand- ing flyer and naval officer. 161 JAMES GREGORY PROUT ORLIN ROBERT SCRIVENER ' Next year, the Ring Dance will be out there. " JAMES GREGORY PROUT Andover, Massachusetts The quiet youth who hails from Andover, Mass. blazed the clay many a Saturday afternoon to become one of the finest legmen the Naval Academy has seen. Jay was always a complacent individual never to let anyone or anything disturb him. This sometimes caused him trouble but he always managed to survive his punish- ment and come back for more. ORLIN ROBERT SCRIVENER Kansas City, Missouri Scriv came to the Naval Academy via the U.S. Navy and NAPS. Since plebe year, his major participations have centered around the football team with which he has annually served as manager, both plebe and , varsity. His love of football was second only to that girl back home. The winter months found " Orbs " active on the make-up squads and, if the winter was long enough, company intramural sports, with his favorite work-out occurring on the " blue trampoline. " His quick wit and friendly sarcasm often made him the source of much laughter. After graduation, Orlin hopes to be Pensy-bound for the " Wings of Gold " . The fleet will gain a man of fine qualities and an officer whose success and good works will reflect, not only upon himself and the Acad- emy, but on his service and his country as well. " Beat Army. " JAMES DANIEL SWINSON JR. ROBERT JOSEPH TARR JR. WILLIAM HAMMOND WALLS JAMES DANIEL SWINSON JR. McLean, Virginia Jim came to the Naval Academy after grdauating from Bishop Dennis J. O ' Connell H.S. of Arlington, Virginia and Bullis Preparatory School. At Bullis his Literary talent came to the fore as he was a senior editor of the Bullis yearbook. Since coming to the Academy Jim has showed his variety of talents in many ways. In athletics he has been a team stalwart on the first company light- weight football, cross-country, and soflball teams. Aca- demically, Jim has managed to maintain a respectable average and this is due chiefly to his perseverance. He will not soon forget the year long battle that he gave his physics course, before finally emerging victorious. Jim is very even tempered and a respected friend to all. Jim plans to make his career the Marine Corps and his success is certain. ROBERT JOSEPH TARR JR. Babylon, New York Not unlike Horatio Alger, the Babylon Flash is a self- made man who came to Navy from Bullis by way of Tufts. His lofty aspirations and stern self-control were channeled into a desire for perfection, and he could usually be found, between pushups and shoe shining, rest- ing his eyes in contemplation of yet another worth- while adventure. An all around athlete, Hickey spent most afternoons cavorting around Dewey Field in pursuit of Bildy ' s favor, yet often he still found time in the evenings to slip on his basketball kneepads and participate in another of his favorite sports. The wild, infectious laugh which made Tomato Face a welcome addition to any audience when funny stories were being told, especial- ly his own, coupled with his love of fast cars, slow women, and tall tales, will gain him many steadfast friends in the Polaris Submarine service to which he intends to dedicate his career. WILLIAM HAMMOND WALLS Alexandria, Virginia While originally from Arkansas, Will is no stranger to the rest of the country, having traveled extensively from Alaska to Virginia. Coming directly out of high school he survived plebe year successfully and immedi- ately began demonstrating his academic abilities, par- ticularly in the English, History and Government De- partment. There he excelled as he pursued a history major and eventually became well known in his company for his knowledge in this field. Afternoons and many weekends during the fall and spring found Will sailing the Chesapeake Bay .on the First Battalion YP. The professional knowledge he gained should prove invalu- able in his future naval career. Weekends when he was not on the YP usually found him dragging instead of studying. A dedicated, well rounded gentleman. Will certainly will do well in any field he chooses. FIRST BATTALION FIRST COMPANY 163 SECOND CLASSMEN Back Row. R. G. Morehead, R. L. Mushen, II, P. (N) Pace, W.

Johnsbury, Vermont Andy came to the Naval Academy from St. Johnsbury, Vermont, and his wild tales about skiing and ski resorts have been heard over and over again. Finding no op- portunity to display his skiing abilities here, he decided to give track a try and became a pole vaulter on the plebe track team. The First Batt YP Squadron likewise bene- fitted greatly by having such a hard-working midship- man as a member. His encounters with the Foreign Language Department may yet prove to be a legend. Andy ' s love for the Navy has been clearly reflected in the way he treats plebes who came here for a " free education " . Whatever branch of the Navy Dru goes into will benefit from this hard-working Naval Officer. EDWARD LEE BRUBAKER Woodbury, New Jersey " Bru " winged his way to the halls of Bancroft via Bullis Prep, bringing with him vast amounts of drive and deter- mination, and an energetic personality. Never one to find the engineering curriculum an easy conquest, Ed none the less proved a diligent worker, and consequently, sur- vived the persistent attacks on the Math, Science, and En- gineering Departments. Athletics have always been among his first loves. Unfortunately his gridiron career was cut short by a painful back injury after a successful year of plebe ISO ' s and a third of a season with the varsity " Mighty Mites. " Since his injury, Ed ' s athletic aspirations have been confined to Company sports, where he plays the only way he knows how, with determined, do-or-die ef- fort. On the extracurricular activity scene, Bru served as his company ' s class Ring and Crest Committee represent- ative, class NACA representative, and the Brigade ' s most consistent escort of young beauties. Ed was subjected to the blue-and-gold treatment early in life, as aptly displayed by his oft-heard reference to his father as " The best Chief Petty Officer in the U. S. Navy. " While at Bullis, his was a constant dream of entering the Academy and living up to family tradition by becoming the best Admiral in our Navy. Having reached the first plateau, Ed can look back on a record which is proof enough that the necessity for hard work cannot deter him from his purpose, and that he possesses the attributes necessary for the achievement of just about whatever goal he sets for himself. ROBERT LEWIS CHEEK Concord, North Carolina Hailing from the piedmont of North Carolina, Bob brought with him some time tested ideas to keep the more liberal ones of his friends in Une. Having been a National Merit Scholar, Bob had no difficulty in getting good grades when he decided he needed them. He put a real effort into work with the " Splinter " as layout editor and helped the Brigade ' s spirit as a hard working member of the BAC. Bob further proved an invaluable asset to classmates needing help in math which was his favorite field and in which he worked most thoroughly. His natural curiosity drew him to science fiction, military writings, and the pad. Wherever Bob may want to apply his thoroughness, be it subs or air, he ' ll be a dependable FIRST BATTALION SECOND COMPANY 167 J- .. u.i r -i ' i!iiiJlJl( i i !lli.lJllMgiJiL i M!J!:ailB BIMBW»WiWlffB ROBERT HUGH EMERY JOHN L.

Finding training tables more to his liking than company tables. Bob joined the tennis and squash teams and has continued his winning ways since then. Studies giving him no problems. Bob could often be found trying to figure out how to get in more than 24 hours of sleep in a single day. His quick wit and warm personality could always be counted on to liven up a party or just to cheer up his roommates. Always willing to try something new to add to his book of experiences, he could always be counted on for a long collection of sea-stories. Bob ' s drive and desire to get ahead will serve him and the Navy well in the future. After graduation, Bob tentatively plans a career with Naval Aviation but whatever course he steers, the Navy will be gaining a true gentleman and an outstanding officer. JOHN L. GROSTICK Lexington, Michigan John came to the Academy in 1962 with a taste of military life after spending three years at Staunton Mili- tary Academy. He jumped into the role of Fourth Class Midshipman, alternately running and crawling, and found, after an enjoyable year in plebe science, that he wanted to make better things " through chemistry. " John embarked upon his tough road to a chemistry major during youngster year and was up many nights cracking the secrets of organic chemistry. His weekends gave little time for rest, though, for he was always out with the Midshipman Sailing Squadron; racing, " just sailing " , or doing the dirty " fix-it " work. As second class year descended, John entered the new option program and has been pushing himself harder toward his Chemistry major and a strong background in the scientific field. John, however, has not lost the love of the sea, which he gained through his interminable sailing and, whether line, sub, or air is the future, John will make an outstanding Naval officer. MICHAEL DONALD HASKINS Monterrey, N.L, Mexico Mike came to USNA after spending a carefree year in the NROTC program at the University of Oklahoma. Originally from Angels Camp, California, he spent most of his life in Monterrey, Mexico. Academy routine has agreed with him from the very beginning, as he has always been on the Superintendent ' s List. Plebe year his afternoons were spent with plebe crew. Some of his free time has been devoted to the Foreign Relations Club, Spanish Club and the Trident Society. Through his ef- forts and leadership many Second Company sports have enjoyed good seasons. His devotion to duty kept him constantly aware of the misdemeanors of the Fourth Class. Never content with second best, he has always done everything with intense determination and in the finest traditions of the Navy. He will most assuredly be an officer of which the Navy can be proud. FULBRIGHT SCHOLAR Argentina FRANCIS MARTIN HAYES. JR. Fort Wayne, Indiana A Navy Junior. Marty came to the Academy after completing a very successful high school career in Bruns- wick, Maine. At the Academy, too. he has carried on his efforts to achieve perfection in academics, as is at- tested to by his wearing stars all semesters. Not one to p- 168 FIRST BATTALION SECOND COMPANY FRANCIS MARTIN HAYES, JR. ROBERT SCOTT HOLBROOK be a book worm though. Marty has found time to de- vote to the " Masqueraders " stage gang and to help his classmates over academic trouble spots. Witli an eye towards a Math major and then post graduate school, Marty ' s ability to get the job done will serve him in good stead as he ventures upon a very promising career in the world ' s finest military force. ROBERT SCOTT HOLBROOK Seattle, Washington Bob came to USNA from Seattle, Washington where he was student body president of his high school. A fine water skier, he participated in the Nationals and car- ried through his sports interests here as n ardent sup- porter of Company Sports. Plebe year didn ' t find him very high in his class, but an excellent youngster and second class year found him up. Everyone will remember the phenomenal luck Bob had with blind dates and his willingness to help out a classmate. Second class summer found him beginning to invest in the stock market. Throughout the year his room became the place to get the inside information on the sure bets. Goldfield was one of his most notable predictions and did manage to go up an eighth. Bob wants to go Nuclear Power after graduation and hopes to make a career of the Navy. ROBERT C.ATHRO JOHNSTON. JR. Little Rock, Arkansas Bob came to the Academy from a military background, and it shows in his military bearing and his meticulous quest for perfection. As a member of the crew team, Bob displ ayed the drive and determination that has made him an asset to any organization lucky enough to solicit his membership. It is this same determination that has ROBERT CATHRO JOHNSTON, JR. brought him better than average grades in a curriculum that has made many fall by the wayside. Bob carries on his relations with members of the fair sex with the sauve air becoming of a true gentleman of Arkansas. His determination and drive for perfection will make him an asset to any captain in the fleet. 169 .A ' - ' M!. .a.aj«m iiu.4Jii.H LllLiAlliJirMUIHIU WIJ|imnR DONALD SARGENT KERN CORWIN GUY MENDENHALL MIKKEL MOLLER DONALD SARGENT KERN Saitnderslown, Rhode Island Don undoubtedly holds the record for the most hours spent on the Severn — or in it.

An outstanding athlete in Texas, he readily won the respect and confidence of his teammates in football and his new found sport — Lacrosse. Steady and deter- mined efforts in academics have resulted in his " Supt ' s List " average and the achievement of a major in Me- chanical Engineering. On weekends Mendy could usually be found telling tales of the " Longhorns " and running his " Recon " course in order to maintain his high stand- ards of physical conditioning. Even though sought after by many attractive young ladies, he has yet to fall for their guileful ways. As a member of the Honor Com- mittee, Mendy instilled a sense of integrity and a desire for the highest of standards in the hearts of his class- mates. His commanding presence and proven leadership qualities will enable Him to perform any given mission as a Naval Officer. MIKKEL MOLLER Riverside, Calijorma Mike came to the Academy after earning his dolphins on the Halibut and a year at NAPS. Living in Italy and Denmark before coming to the United States, Mike now lives in Riverside, California. In spite of a handi- cap in foreign language, Mike maintained an average placing in the top third of the class. As an active par- ticipant in company sports he will be remembered most as the man in tlie Alpha Phi shirt taking times for Cross Country. Second class year found Mike in charge of the reception committee and as the organizer of a charter plane to California, at Christmas. Through his determination and persistence Mike is sure to be a credit to the Navy and to succeed in earning his dolphins as an officer upon graduation. RICHARD EDWARD ROLLINS St. Louis, Missouri Rich left his hometown of St. Louis, Mo. to join the Navy and came to U.S.N.A. from Bainbridge Prep. School. Piebe year was tough, but Rich ran through in- doctrination and fought academics to qualify for Young- ster cruise on a destroyer. This cruise confirmed his desire to fly. Rich got off to a good start on academics as a Youngster and extended his mastery over the steam department. His flying lessons finished off a good year, and he came back to his two stripes with goals of high fly- ing. Rich increased his extracurricular activities becoming a hammer and saw specialist with the stage gang as well as Catholic Choir member. Glee Club tenor and participant in the Musical Club shows. Rich danced his way through First class year, with everything going for him. With his many talents and his ability to apply him- 170 FIRST BATTALION SECOND COMPANY RICHARD EDWARD ROLLINS JOHN ROBERT RONCHEHO, JR. self to any problem at hand, Rich will certainly be- come a stalwart of the Navy. JOHN ROBERT RONCHETTO, JR. Udca, New York Coming here from Notre Dame High School in Utica, New York. John found the Naval Academy and Plebe year quite different than what he had expected. Having always been a sociable person, John managed to make many friends among the girls of Annapolis whose friendships were a welcome change from the rigors of plebe year. During his years here. John proved himself good at many different sports. He lettered in Plebe squash, and sparked the company basketball and cross-county teams. He was also a long-ball hitter for the softball team. To round out a complete personality, John proved himself good with books, by getting high enough grades to enable him to major in Political Science. This field of study fitted perfectly into John ' s personality, because he was always the soul of discretion and tact. John found his career second class summer when he was introduced to Naval Aviation, but whatever he does, John ' s work will always reflect the diligence of thought and planning which has always been characteristic of him. JAY T. RORICK JR. Los Alios, Calijornia Tom entered the Naval Academy after attending UCLA for a year. He was born and raised in Oregon, but now calls Los Altos, California his home.

He was a standout lineman in high school and played plebe ball before being sidelined by an injury early in the season. There- after he contributed his considerable beef and savvy to the Batt football and Company fieldball squads, where he soon gained a reputation as a hard charger and worthy foe. Though not as spectacular, Jim ' s academic career has always been above average and his, at times, explosive teaching methods will long be remembered by those of us who went to him seeking intellectual en- lightenment. On leave and liberty this son of the Lone Star state was equally impressive and his stamina and zeal for life ' s pleasures have left many a classmate exhausted from his efforts to keep pace. All of us who have known Jim will remember him as a good friend and a faithful supporter of his shipmates and the Navy. Wherever he chooses to serve he is sure to be a constant contributor and a fine officer. LUTHER WILLIAM SNYDER. JR.

Before coming to the Academy Alan completed a year ' s work on an NROTC scholarship at Miami of Ohio. As a sports enthusiast, Al loved contact. He was a power hitter on the Company Softball team, played Battalion football and never turned down a good fight in a fieldball game. Throughout his four years here, Al took a sincere interest in his studies. His grades were always above average, which enabled him to major in mathematics — a field which enslaved him with those weekly " hand-ins " . Al loved good music and, of course, studied every evening next to the radio or stereo. Next to the Navy Al enjoys skiing and sports car racing. Al hopes to further his interests in either aviation or nuclear power and definitely plans to go on to post-graduate school. lierever the future takes Alan, he surelv will succeed with his conscientious effort, sober attitude, and dynamic personality. DALE NOEL TITUS Tamaqua. Pennsylvania Upon graduation from Tamaqua High School, where he was a record holder in track and an all-county fullback in football, Dale saw blue and gold and decided to make Mother Bancroft his new home. A year at NAPS gave him military experience and polished his academics before entering the Academy. His relaxed and happy attitude made him the envy of all who knew him. A sports minded individual, he was active in football and track, spending most spare time on the athletic field. Dale supplemented his meager midshipman ' s pay by becoming a businessman who had no equal among his classmates. Sleep, food, and dreams of those beautiful Pennsylvania hills kept him going between leave periods. Happiness for Dale w as breaking petty regulations. He was engaged in a constant search for shortcuts and usually managed to find the easiest way to do everything. He was active in the German Club, N.A.C.A., and the Foreign Relations Club. Dale hopes for a duty station in a warm, sunny climate, pos- sibly Pensacola. He intends to continue his education while in the Navy, and has aspirations for a teaching and political career after his tour in the Navy. 173 ' ' ' ( • ' fsif m immmgmmmmmsmmmmmimmmmm ■IP FIRST BATTALION SECOND COMPANY CHARLES W.

By night Chuck could be found expounding upon the virtues of his hometown and state, Santa Monica, California, while by day he set out to improve on his athletic record by participating in many and varied company sports. Weekends found Chuck setting new records for cobblestones covered in a minimal amount of time, while making the rounds of Annapolis. De- spite a minor academic setback during plebe year. Chuck rebounded, fighting weapons labs all the way, to improve greatly his academic standing during succeeding years. Judging from Chuck ' s disdainful attitude following young- ster cruise, his physical ability and the multitude of Leatherneck magazines to be found in his room, he ap- pears to be a prime candidate for the Marine Corps upon graduation. JOEL ALEXANDER WIER, III Athens, Georgia Since Buddy embarked with us in the summer of ' 62, fresh from a year in the halls of the University of Georgia, he ' s managed to earn himself quite a name as a swimmer and studier. Faithful to his " Don ' t Cut Corners " motto, his drive in athletics and academics has earned him a perpetual seat on the varsity swimming team and elective courses in the new option program. His good humor, friendly manner, and shined shoes have always served him in good stead with his classmates and company officer. Certainly, with Buddy ' s arrival in the fleet, the Navy will be gaining another fine officer and gentleman. 174 BRIAN WALTER YOUNG Sacramenio. Calijomia Brian came to us from Sacramento, California having first attended Sacramento City College for a year. Hav- ing won the California State Archery Championship and being quite an expert bow-hunter, he was never too anxious to tell about one of his adventures. Neverthe- less his luck with the USNA laundry was not that good, for every week found him complaining about lost or un- recognizable articles. Brian was very consistently on the Superintendent ' s List and was always willing to help a classmate in trouble. At the same time he had time to exhibit his great artistic talent by means of impressive posters. As a plebe he was a member of the Rifle team, but company sports attracted his desire to do his best; he excelled in all sports. Whatever branch of the Navy Brian goes into will certainly be benefited, having gained such a hard-working man. ANTHONY F. ZALLNICK JR. Cleveland, Ohio How to succeed at Navy without really studying is Tony ' s secret for an enjoyable but very profitable four years. After giving plebe academics the mixed attention that they get when they are competing with the more pressing demands of plebe year, he adopted the philos- ophy of avoiding studying if at all possible to pursue the more enjoyable things in life such as dragging, touch football, basketball and reading. But not above studying once in a while, Tony took a broad sampling of overloads to satisfy his variety of interests and set his sights on a Nuclear Science major. Having had a good background from his high school in Cleveland and a well developed literary style and verbal prowess, he employed his talents on the Debate Team. On the sports field Tony had his success in squash and touch football. The variety and scope of his natural abilities and in- terests will make him a most desirable and sought after Naval officer in anv branch of the Navy. BRIAN WALTER YOUNG ::vr;t ANTHONY F.

ANGEL Miami, Florida RICHARD EUGENE BROWN Carbondale, Illinois Jim came to the Naval Academy from Miami, with a one year layover at NAPS. But the year in the Northern climes didn ' t seem to dim his sunshine personality and talents. When not engaged in the rigors of " freshman " year, Jim was found on the athletic field quarterbacking the undefeated plebe eleven. But where else should you find a man that lettered in three major sports in high school and at NAPS? Youngster year found " Ang " the first man in the company to win the coveted N , not to mention being chosen an All-Anierican on the 150 lb. team. By second class year Jim had pushed his " meager " 150 lb. frame to such limits that he was called to duty as a halfback for the Varsity team. Playing with the big boys didn ' t seem to bother Jim, but it did seem to bother them. Perhaps his biggest thrill, not counting the thrills the Executive nepartment had in store for him second- class year, was scoring his first varsity touchdown in Navy-Marine Stadium against Duke. In whatever he chooses to do it is sure that the " Littlest Angel " will be a great asset to anybody ' s roster. STEVEN KENT BERG Twin Falls, Idaho Steve, a native of Twin Falls, Idaho, becomes some- what perplexed whenever he receives no mail from home — he wonders if something has happened to the Pony Express! Steve has a marvelous sense of humor, and has always been very popular with his classmates. He is diligent in his studies, and persevering on the playing field. He has demonstrated his athletic ability as a mem- ber of the plebe and varsity track teams. Sieve ' s hobbies are also varied. He is as likely to be found fishing along the seawall as in his room playing the harmonica. Among the experiences he will long remember are his fishing and camping trips up the Severn River on weekends. He has not yet decided upon his career, although his ideas range from Aviation to the Chaplain Corps. But whatever field he chooses, Steve will certainly be a re- spected Naval Officer and a valuable asset to the Navy. A true son of the " Little Egypt " part of " The Land of Lincoln, " Rick gave up the prospects of partying his way through a civilian college or of playing football for the Coast Guard Academy and set out for the old " Boat School. " Despite the fun he had on the pistol range plebe summer, he finally settled down to a rigorous plebe year under the direction of " the Old School. " " Sneezy, " as he came to be called by his roommates second-class year, could always be found with a book in his hands and bags under his eyes — suffering which earned him a place on the Superintendent ' s List and which added stars to his uniform. His athletic ability helped to carry his Battalion football team to the Brigade Championship plebe year. Weekends were never a problem for Rick. When he wasn ' t dragging he could always be found either in the library or with his best friend — his bed. Rick ' s determination and capacity for hard work, along with the ability to laugh in the face of defeat will distinguish him in any field he decides to enter.

An ardent member of the " pad club " , Ely ' s most precious possession was sleep and most of his afternoons were spent trying to catch up on the sleep he lost during that exciting weekend. Whenever he could be persuaded to invade the athletic field, his presence was decidely felt, as he helped win many an intramural contest. His athletic endeavors were applied to plebe track during his first year here, and the various intramural teams thereafter. Not long after he entered USNA he realized there was something more important than hooks, sports and sleep and every weekend was spent pursuing that interest. His contributions to the telephone company in doing so were exceeded by few. Ely ' s future is undecided as yet, but whatever he chooses, his friendly personality, intelligence and understanding will undoubtedly carry him to great heights. MARSHALL CARDON CLEGG Pleasant Hill, Calijomia Marshall arrived at the Naval Academy after an arduous 26-mile journey from Alexandria, Va. However, being a Navy junior his horizons haven ' t been quite as limited as was first indicated. He has been fortunate to call home; Japan. California, Utah, Guam, Ohio, and Virginia. As inferred by many of those Saturday night " bull ses- sions " , his present California home ranks high on the Hst. Immediately on arrival. Marsh ' s personality marked him as the least likely guy to wear stars, but underneath that jovial party-type personality lurks a mind that has added stars to his collar and has placed him on the Superintendent ' s List every semester. Whether it was leading the Battalion Water Polo team to consecutive Brigade Championship, excelling in touch football or en- gaging in extra-curricular activities at the drag house — Marshall could be counted on to give his best. Although the " talk of the English, history, and government depart- ment " it must be said that Marsh ' s intelligence leaped more toward the sciences. Whatever branch he chooses, his alert mind and his warm personality are bound to add another distinguished graduate to the Naval Service. 180 PETER MICHAEL FRIKKER RONALD KENNETH GURLEY JAMES ROBERT KAPPES PETER MICHAEL FRIKKER W ' ashington Tounship, New Jersey Coining to Navy from Washington Township, New Jersey, Pete adapted quickly to " the system " in all respects. He had little trouble with academics and could often be seen preparing for classes days in advance when his roommates were struggling to keep their heads above water. A versatile and able athlete. Frik displayed his talents as a center for the plebe basketball team, discus thrower on the track team, and fierce competitor in intra- mural sports. However, Pete always found time to watch the girls go by from his window above Tecumseh Court, no matter how busy he seemed to be with sports and academics. He displayed his leadership talents as COM- SUBSQUAD early in his days at the Academy, and held this position for eight consecutive semesters. Undecided at present as to what branch of the Navy he will pursue, Pete ' s dynamic personality and leadership assure him a successful career. RONALD KENNETH GURLEY Baton Rouge, Louisiana Ron hails from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, home of the LSU Tigers, and the same year that Ron came to Navy found LSU " s Paul Dietzel moving to Army. At Navy, Ron soon adapted himself to the great change from civilian and high-school life and became a welcome addition to the Brigade. Involved in successive company changes, Ron found himself in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd companies, respectively, during his first three years here, but his win- ning personality, ready smile, and friendly manner never failed to win him lasting friends wherever he went. When not playing 150-pound football, the winter and spring sports seasons would find him adding his talents to the company basketball and squash teams. Although a steady competitor, Ron was never a poor loser. Ron was also a member of the French Club and Foreign Relations Club. Not easily adaptable to the fine arts of Math, Sci- ence, or Engineering, Ron overloaded every year to work toward majors in Naval Management and Political Science. Upon graduation he plans to go Naval Aviation, preferably into a Patrol Squadron of P-3 ' s. His warm and friendly personality and easy wit are sure to make him a success wherever he goes. PORT ROBERT MARTIN JAMES ROBERT KAPPES Staunton, Virginia Jim had a head start both in academics and military indoctrination as he was in the miltary at V. P. L for a year before coming to Navy. Jim ' s ability in math and science kept his average up in the running. Possessing an amiable character and a warm personality, Jim was always a friend to his classmates who came to him for help. Jim ' s athletic abilities were applied to Battalion tennis. Company football, and Company softball. Swim- ming wasn ' t one of Jim ' s favorite sports, but effort and application of his determination solved this problem. Overloads in Math were a natural part of Jim ' s academics, and participation in French Club activities consumed some of his leisure time, as did his avid fondness of music. The members of both the Second and Third Companies will admirably attest Jim ' s ability in almost any field, including the feminine set. Jim hopes to apply these abilities in the expanding Naval Aviation Officer (NAO) program of the Navy, and his personality and determina- tion will surely bring success in any endeavor. 181 - „ .,,,i| N »| i, ,y i |j,gp|;jB ;jj,|B jffg;|gg;|ggg|pj JAMES EWING MENKE ALBERT JOHN MOHA JR. PORT ROBERT MARTIN Walla Walla, Washinf ion A Navy junior and ex-naval reservist. Bob had a tough time plebe year convincing the upper class that Walla Walla. Washington, really was his home and not the result of a severe stuttering condition. As the top graduate of his Walla Walla High School class. Boh brought with him the intelligence, wit, ambition, perse- verance, and amiable personality that have earned him a spot among the top men in our class and also such affectionate nicknames as " Brain Wonder Stud " and " Super Power Brain. " Bob ' s years at the Academy have been filled with the extracurricular as well as the aca- demic, including intramural football, tennis, squash, cross country, original Walla Walla paddle ball, the gun and camera clubs, and the Tecumseh Court Drags Censors Association. Experiences on the Plebe Detail and the class striper organization have made Bob a very enthus- iastic follower and, above all, a very capable and well liked leader. Bob has his sights set on post graduate work at present with one eye occasionally on submarines, and with the head start he already has by virtue of his all- Navy first name, Port, he is certain to be an outstanding success in whatever field he chooses. FULBRIGHT SCHOLAR France JAMES EWING MENKE Merced, CalijoTiiia Although Jim fondly reminisces about California, he has made himself at home here in Annapolis. His shelves, stuffed with books, both English and Spanish, pictures of his girls, and foul weather gear from the sailing squadron reveal his portable loves. Writing for the Log and Splinter he demonstrated his liberal arts inclination that helped him in both English and elective Spanish courses. Well known around the Rifle Team and Gun Club and in the Photography Club darkroom, he still managed to find restful leisure moments during his hectic days. Treating academics as a necessary evil, Menks found time to read a photography magazine or a novel, and listen to music, from classical to jazz. His many tales and anecdotes, some original, of the " 64 Newport-Bermuda race livened many a dull study hour. His congenial out- look, his friendly manner, and his good nature will make him a great success in his service career. ALBERT JOHN MOTTA JR. The Bronx, New York City, New York Enthusiast in everything he did. Big Al could be seen each day strolling through Bancroft Hall accom- panied by his pets, the Aardvark and the Platypus, and talking to his mythical companion Sidney Ferguson. Coming from the Bronx in New York City, Al brought with him a sense of humor and the talent to make everyone around him laugh. Al was never far from a foottsall or boxing gloves and also proved to be an outstanding Softball pitcher. His nonchalance was constantly attacked by the Executive Department, but with verbal magnificence and a little bit of luck he escaped virtually unharmed. With a locker that often outclassed the Commissary Department in volume, variety, and flavor of food on hand, Al was never far from a snack. Yet he was more serious than outward appearances might convey and never neglected his academics or his general conduct. His good-natured attitude and personal drive will let him travel far in whichever direction he chooses. EDGAR LeROY PITMAN. Ill Plymouth, North Carolina Naval Aviation was the motivating factor that resulted in Lee ' s leaving Davidson College for Navy. After young- ster cruise, his decision to fly was definite and was strengthened after an enjoyable second class summer at Pensacola. Except for a year long battle with the plebe skinny department, Lee had little trouble in adapting to life at Navy — immediately he became an enthusiastic yawl sailor. Lee ' s interest and participation in the rifle team continued at Navy after beginning at Davidson. Next to seeing his girl as often as possible, chief among Lee ' s interests are hunting, fishing, and water skiing, which he finds ample opportunity to enjoy in his home- town on Albemarle ' Sound. A literature major. Lee dis- played drive and hard work in his other academics that left him little time for the " blue trampoline. " With his un- !82 FIRST BATTALION THIRD COMPANY EDGAR LeROY PITMAN, ROBERT BOWERS PLOEGER cle paving the way. Lee is the second contribution to the Naval Service from his family, and with his characteristic drive and desire to do his best, that contribution un- doubtedly will be significant. ROBERT B0 ERS PLOEGER Darien, Georgia Rob came to the Naval Academy from the Deep South and immediately proved that he was a true " Rebel. " The vigors of plebe year were somewhat alleviated when the upperclass learned of Rob ' s wonderful rendition of " Marching Through Georgia. " in which he accompanied himself on the ukelele. Rob survived plebe year and the blow it caused to his beloved Georgia and went on to the happy and carefree days of youngster year. However, nos- talgia came to be a regular evening occurrence when Rob tuned up the uke for the nightly hootenanny. Completely forgetting the ballad of Sherman ' s historic march, members of the old first company could be found being led by Rob through the gay refrains of " St. James Infirmary " or " The Reverend. Mr. Black. " Battalion and company sports bene- fitted a great deal from Rob " s membership. After spending his first year on the Plebe crew team and Fall of youngster year on the Battalion football team. Rob decided to turn to the less strenuous sports and contributed greatly to the Battalion badminton ' s Brigade championship team and to respectable records in Company basketball, volleyball, and touch football. After graduation. Rob plans a future in Navy line. Judging from his record at USNA. he " ll be a fine addition to his chosen field. RUSSELL ARTHUR PUPPE Hensel. North Dakota Russ made good his silent promise to do well in his new environment when he left the Midwest to take up the challenge of higher education. Although at first visibly amazed at the modern wonders of electricity and running water, he soon learned to take them for granted, and settled down to the task at hand. His plebe year-long feud with the Foreign Language Department convinced him to forego (to say the least) the option leadmg to a language major, but it certainly didn ' t stifle any of the " Pup ' s " initiative. He aimed at a Naval Management RUSSELL ARTHUR PUPPE major and, as with all things he attempts, succeeded handily. And all the while, he was a frequent occupant of that slot reser ed for him on the Superintendent ' s List. During his upperclass years, Russ, as manager, ac- companied the football team on all its trips, and once he even " . . . left his heart in San Francisco. " When Russ left his hometown— Hensel, North Dakota— the entire population turned out to the corral to wish him well. Just the fact that he goes home for Christmas each year is sufficient proof of the continuing existence of the Wells-Fargo Stage Line. Known in some circles as " the last of the good guys, " Russ is one of the few who can be as at home on the bridge of a destroyer as he is behind a plow. Russ ' pleasant personality, combined with the ability to get the job done, tempered with wit and humor, and bound with loyalty and integrity insure the Navy of the type of officer it must have in the world of today and to- morrow. 183 jj 111. mmmimmaa Bmmmmmmmmmmmsmim FIRST BATTALION THIRD COMPANY NEAL ALBERT QUINN. JR. FRANCIS S. SCALCUCCI Roar!!! m-K ' fL ' NEAL ALBERT QUINN. JR. Monterey, California Neal, a Navy Jr. in good standing, signed on after a voyage from his old Hawaiian home in the shadow of Diamond Head. A standout student in high school, he wisely followed the path of least resistance and remained largely anonymous until the shot and shell of plebe year was a fading echo on the horizon. Emerging during young- ster cruise and satisfying himself that all was well, he began to make his presence felt by coaching his room- mates through the mysteries of third class math, engineer- ing, and science. He rose to true prominence, however, when he conducted the storied signal drills of that year. Transferring to the new third company at the beginning of second class year, Neal continued to exert a strong, though quiet, influence, while at the same time supplying an unending flow of correct responses to the usually in- comprehensible questions of the Academic Depts. All of us who have come to know him during the last four years have found Neal to be a lo yal shipmate and a firm friend. His keen insight and willingness to serve will certainly provide the Navy with an officer of outstanding ability. FRANCIS S. SCALCUCCI Ishpeming, Michigan After a year of studies at Michigan Tech, " Seal " de- cided that the only way to really live was with the Blue and Gold. He brought with him an outgoing personality that was to stand him in good stead throughout his four years here on the Severn. As an excellent football player and All-Stater in basketball in high school, his talents were warmly welcomed, not only by the plebe and J.V. basketball teams for whom he played so outstandingly, but also by the many Company and Battalion teams he played for. Seal was also an excellent skier and golfer. It can truly be said that whatever sport he participated in was benefited immensely by his presence. Seal ' s ability FRANK SHYJKA BRIAN BRANCH SIBOLD ROBERT STRINGFELLOW WALKER IV was by no means limited only to sports. His fine mind proved to be a boon to many of his less fortunate class- mates. And, although his Superintendent ' s List grades don ' t show it, Seal found more time for the " Blue Tramp " than any other two mids here at Canoe U. Seal ' s future is somewhat undecided at present, but his qualities of lead- ership, diligence, and the burning desire to succeed will undoubtedly carry him straight to the top. FRANK SHYJKA MayfieU, Kentucky • Frank came to the IVaval Academy from Mayfield, Kentucky. Being the only young man from Mayfield, he had quite an honor to uphold, and being true to himself in all ways did well in his life at the Naval Academy. During his time at the Academy, Frank was active in numerous extracurricular activities as a member, and later, as president of the Photography Club, as a member of the Gun Club. Foreign Relations Club, and Russian Club, and with a bit part in a Masqueraders ' production. He worked to keep a growing knowledge of the Navy and believed in the importance of pro- fessional knowledge to the Naval Officer. Frank ' s more basic interests do most certainly lie in the field of pho- tography which will in all events lead him on to his choice of doing photographic work with Navy Air. Frank enjoys books of social and realistic importance, music, fine foods and a plain desire to relax. It must also be said that Shyks has a general interest in the opposite sex. His good mind and strongly based opinions move him with determination in the direction he chooses. Frank is a good man to have as a friend. BRIAN BRANCH SIBOLD Alex 1, Virginia A Navy junior " Skybolt " came to the Naval Academy from Hawaii where he attended Punahou School. Trad- ing his surfboard for an M-1, he buckled down to work and occasionally even found himself on the Superin- tendent ' s List. An oceanography major, he found time to overload and at the same time drive his roommates crazy studying late. Much of his time was spent digging up drags for the weekend, and what little time was left over was spent hashing over last week ' s. " Bolt, " never satisfied with his present sport, played company light and heavyweight football, cross-country, plebe track, light- weight crew, and Battalion rugby, tennis and lacrosse. This proved valuable experience, and even to this day he is not sure what part of the Navy he likes best, Nuclear Power being his latest whim. ROBERT STRINGFELLOW WALKER IV Darien, Connecticut Hailing from Darien, Connecticut, Walk came to us after spending three years in the United States Marine Corps. His previous military experience proved to be a great advantage, not only to himself, but to his class- mates, whose respect he has deservedly earned. Walk spent most of his afternoons on the golf course, in the handball courts or with the books. Although not an aca- demic genius, hard work and diligent study many times saved Walk from the Academic Board. His pursuit of wine, women and song, not necessarily in that order, is paralleled by few. His antics in Philadelphia and his trav- els throughout the U. S. have provided many an entertain- ing evening for all. Traveling around the nation in his lit- tle VW. golf clubs on top, money seemed to bum holes in his pockets, especially when he wound up on the losing end of many golf matches. String ' s future lies in the air. Whether in the Navy or the Marine Corps, his per- severance and competitive spirit will undoubtedly bring String to a command position at the top of his chosen field. 185 . . u mi. ..iJMniu ■ .i. iMmjMgmsmmBimmmKmmm FIRST BATTALION THIRD COMPANY THOMAS LEE WALLS JOSEPH ROGER WHITE THOMAS LEE WALLS Bardslown. Kentucky Tom comes to us from Bardstown, Kentucky, the home of some of our nation ' s fine bourbons, where the ever- present smell of sour whiskey mash gave him a caustic outlook on life. He is well liked by his classmates, but tends to be somewhat reserved. Tom has a bad habit of studying, and holds an academic position in the top of the class. He participates actively in company sports such as cross-country and softball. and is a member of the varsity pistol team. He hopes to obtain a major in naval management before leaving Navy. Due to a strong phobia against submarines and his not-so-sterling eyesight, Tom seems destined for a place of responsibility in our surface Navy. JOSEPH ROGER WHITE fViggins, Mississippi Roger hails from the pickle center of the universe, Wiggins, Mississippi. An honor graduate of Perkinston Junior College, he soon adapted to the Navy life by applying himself to Battalion handball and gymnastics. His major interest in academics is in social studies, where he is obtaining his major. In any gathering of classmates, his keen wit and outgoing personality keep everyone laughing. Rog ' s chief non-academic interest is his airborne training at Fort Benning. He also enjoys teaching everyone to speak fluent Italian. After graduation, Rog prefers to do his part in the Navy Air portion of anti- submarine warfare. 186 ROBERT DAVID WHITE Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Calling Philadelphia home, Bob came to the Academy after a successful year at Perm State. During the following years, he fought a good battle with the academic depart- ments and could usually be found participating in one sport or another. A gymnast, he was enthusiastic about any form of athletics and could always be counted on to be in the middle of any intramural contest. Bob ' s first love was books, however, and many a study hour was spent huddled over a book and his everpresent cup of coffee. Preferring the improvement of his mind to riotous evenings with the opposite sex. " Whitey " was the mainstay of many intellectual discussions and was seldom caught without a good argument. A member of the Hop Com- mittee and Foreign Relations Club, he was active in affairs of the Brigade and his warm personality could be counted on to enliven any group. No matter which branch of the Navy he enters, Bob ' s friendly manner and outgoing personality will carry him far in the years to come. FRANCIS EARL WIGGERS JR. Indianola, Mississippi Earl, a rebel from the start, came to the Academy from Indianola, Mississippi. Although claiming that it was too far north for him, he quickly settled down to the life at Navy. He was quick to make friends, especially among the feminine species, and his dynamic personality made him well liked by all. Although one of his favorite activities was imitating a blanket. Earl was quick to accept an invitation to a bridge game or any outdoor sport. He participated actively in Company sports, being a welcome contribution to the soccer and 150 lb. football team, and also took part in French club activities during his four years here. Earl has his eye on the destroyer Navy; with- out doubt he will be an asset to the fleet. ROBERT DAVID WHITE FRANCIS EARL WIGGERS JR. 187 . ' !.. .1.

Texas Butch learned the knack of Academy life quickly and was able to spend his four years here striving to make Annapolis into a Texas suburb. A true Southwesterner, LeRoy used his ready smile to win many friends. Butch had to work hard for his grades, but he also was able to make time for a number of extracurricular activities. Singing with the Antiphonal Choir brought him much pleasure, and as a writer and cartoonist for the " Log ' and " Splinter " he became known to us all. Life at the Academy was a joy to Butch. The atmosphere of regi- mentation and discipline agreed well with him, and he was never heard to complain. However it wasn ' t uncom- mon to hear exclamations of. " It isn ' t this cold in Texas! " come exploding from his room on a wintry evening. He just couldn ' t seem to adjust to Maryland weather. Naval Aviation is the future for which Butch is headed. Wherever his future may lead him. he will be known and respected by all as a fine officer. THOMAS RODNEY BERNIER SuJlicU, Connecticut Tom came to USNA from the tobacco growing regions of northern Connecticut, after spending four years at Suffield High School where he became adept at the finer points of soccer: his skill at the sport made him a standout on the company squads. Never one to worry about academics, Tom could usually be found writing to his girl or getting a little " pad " time. His interests- tend towards the field of aviation, but Tom ' s congeniality and sportsmanship will make him a success in any field. His thinning hair will pose no serious problems as long as he keeps his hard hat on. JOHN ROBERT BRINSER Galeton, Pennsylvania John came to the Naval Academy after graduating from Galeton High School in Galeton. Pennsylvania. He easily adjusted to Navy life and was able to take everything with a smile. Every true Naval officer is active in sports, and John is no exception. He was a member of the gym- nastics team as well as a member of the Company cross- country, volleyball, and basketball teams. Besides his ability in athletics, he w as good with academics, majoring in Math. In his spare time he sang in the Chapel Choir and Glee Club which made his four years at Annapolis more interesting with various trips to other colleges. John ' s cheerful smile and pleasant disposition have won him many friends and added to his success at Navy. He is very dedicated to his country and should have no trouble going far in his Naval career.

Nick came to the Naval Academy to dedicate himself to four years of training. With a strong sense of purpose, he leaves little time for entertainment. Nick combines a granite-based common sense with genuine understanding. He has traveled widely and knows how to deal with all kinds of people. After a year as campus playboy at Wisconsin, Nick has developed a fine taste for culture and entertainment. His excellent taste for fine music and art compare to none. The Newburgh Nike prides himself in his Greek heri- tage and keeps himself in good physical condition. His taste in fine foods and delicacies also demonstrates his Greek background. His fierce desire and spirit for Navy were shown on nation-wide television in the 1963 Cotton Bowl game when Nick appeared at several timeouts be- cause of his inspired spirit. Nick will be sure to display his talent and great single- mindedness of purpose in his future profession. JOHN SHELTON GREGG Alius, Oklahoma John calls Altus, Oklahoma, home, but he has lived in many places ranging from Maine to Texas. John is an E, H, and G major, and he finds much pleasure in pon- dering the works of Shakespeare and the like. Since plebe summer, his athletic efforts have been centered around Hubbard Hall as coxswain of the lightweight crew team. Every Sunday morning John can be found in Dahlgren Hall acting as the babysitter-Sunday school teacher combination for the officers ' children. Second class summer found John as a member of the illustrious home guard — " the detail. " He did an outstanding job of preparing our newest members for life at the Academy. John is well liked among his fellow midshipmen, and his easy going manner should prove to be a great asset to his future success as a Naval officer. John ' s plans for the future include submarine school, but if things don ' t work out Navy line still looks mighty fine. WAYNE RICHARD HANLEY Hopkins, Minnesota Wayne hails from Hopkins, Minnesota, and upon graduation from high school, brought a distinctive record here to Navy. His easy manner and even temper have brought him much respect and many close friends. His availability in time of need mark him among his class- mates. His interests range from sports to a good book now and then. His sports prowess is manifested by his ability in the ring in Battalion and Brigade Boxing and his hard drive on the rugby field. Wayne ' s interests often wander into the field of academics where he is striving for a major in aerodynamics. Always putting forth his best effort, Wayne has succeeded in attaining a fine average despite some of the tougher overloads in which he has enrolled. For future plans, Wayne sets his sights on Naval Aviation. Certainly his ability, determination, and lead- ership qualities will find application in the Naval Service. There is no doubt in anyone ' s mind that Wayne has what it takes. THOMAS LARRY HIGGS Anes Station, Tennessee This effervescent Tennessean came to USNA as a vet- eran of four years of military preparatory school and a year at Vanderbilt University.

Already a licensed pilot, Tom is eagerly awaiting graduation and flight school, followed by a career in Naval Aviation where he is sure to be an outstanding officer. KARL THOMAS HOEPFNER Covinnlon, Kenlitcky Tom came to the Naval Academy from Covington, Kentucky, where he was an outstanding high school stu- dent and athlete. He mastered the many challenges pre- sented by life at USNA, and was looked upon as a leader in whatever he did. During his four years, he played rug- by, swam, played handball, and was one of the stalwart linemen on the Company football team. Despite his many interests, Tom was able to maintain a starman ' s average. His classmates always found him willing to explain some point in engineering or science, but when it came to the humanities, he was on the short end. Tom has decided to venture into the fields of submarines and nuclear power. Both of the fields will gain a fine and conscien- tious worker when Tom arrives on the scene. His over-all ability and desire to get ahead will definitely put him on the top. STEPHEN SANDERS HOXIE Bordentown, I ' ew Jersey Steve came to the Academy from New Jersey, fresh out of high school. In his first year at the Academy, he was a member of the plebe crew team, and as an upper- classman, he competed for the company ' s heavyweight football team and Battalion crew. Steve has become a STEPHEN SANDERS HOXIE surfing enthusiast in the last few years, and it ' s a sure bet he will be riding the big ones every chance he gets. No matter how many P-Works he had the next day, " Hox " never missed writing to his OAO. One of the rare Mid- shipmen who is on a friendly basis with the engineering department. Steve has even gone so far as to major in Aeronautical Engineering. This background will certainly be of value in his future career.

He was born in El Paso, but spent so much time in Canada that its spell overcame his Texas loyalties. Coming directly to the Naval Academy from Austin High School in El Paso, Gerry brought with him a record marked by academic and athletic achievement. His prowess has continued at the Academy as is shown by the many numerals and monograms on his B-robe and the presence of his name on the list of Starmen. His extracurricular activities include swimming, skin diving, and light-weight crew as well as Company heavyweight football. Gerry holds a record for number of successful escapes from the rigors of the Form 2 due to his imagi- native statements. Always on top of his studies, he never- theless has plenty of time for keeping Navy from becoming tedious.

A piCOH THOMAS KLXKAID KLMMEL, JR. Alexandria, Virginia Coming from a long and distinguished line of dedi- cated Naval officers, Tom appears to have inherited wanderlust, a quality which earmarked him to carry on the tradition. A prime target for the many wide-eyed femmes who invade the yard, he has always been averse to ties that bind. Perhaps it is confidence he invariably displays by his Friday night phone calls for Saturday dates. He is best known and most admired for his matchless devotion. Tom ' s singular sense of duty will not allow him to give less than all of himself to the task at hand. When the time comes and the order is given, he will not falter. He will be an unparalleled credit to his countrv and to the branch of the service he enters. JOSEPH S. MOBLEY Manhattan Beach, California Joe ' s carefree spirit led him to the California beach after high school, where he worked at odd jobs when he wasn ' t soaking up the rays of the sun. Leaving his surfboard behind, he came to USNA to better himself. A person who tackles problems cooly, Joe has managed to maintain good grades despite a constant hassle with the English. History, and Government Department. Joe was a standout cross country runner and volleyball player. As an end on the company ' s heavyweight football team, he was usually sent out for the long pass. He is one of the few Mids who is still seeing his pre-. ' Vcademy GAO. Navv Air will certainly benefit from Joe ' s efforts. FRED PETER MOOSALLY athlete, then lost no time in distinguishing himself on the Navy football fields. Off those fields, Fred ' s mature and personable ways won him the respect and friendship of all his classmates. Keeping one eye on the promising football careers of his younger brothers, the other on the constant battle of the academics, and still managing to look forward to the coming weekends, kept him a busy man. Yet, other interests, such as his concern for politics and broad knowledge of world history, continually sur- prised even his closest friends. Meeting all situations with honesty and attacking problems with a sense of humor and an uncommon degree of common sense, Fred is due for a future of satisfaction and prosperity. FRED PETER MOOSALLY Yonngstoivn, Ohio The pride of Youngstown, Ohio, Fred came to the Naval Academy with an impressive list of honors from L rsline Hiiih School. " The Moose.

When not engaged in his favorite pastime, making money, Bear could most often be found on the playing field with Navy ' s " Mighty Mites, " the 150 lb. football team. Tom ' s prowess on the athletic field with the ISO ' s served to win him the coveted " N " star, for gallantry in battle against Army ' s grey. Perhaps his most out- standing achievement, however, was making weight each week. Tom is the favorite son of Knoxville, Tenn., where he attended Young High School. A year at Colombian Prep, prepared him amply for USNA, where he was quickly recognized as a competent and forceful leader. Aside from football, some of Tom ' s activities included being co-chairman of the Ring and Crest committee and a member of Gun Club. He lends an enthusiastic eye toward Naval Aviation but will certainly do an outstanding job in any phase of a Navy career. JOHN BERNARD POSOLI The Bronx, New York, New York John, better known by his friends as " The Pope " came to USNA straight from the streets of the Bronx. With good athletic ability and an ever-alert eye for the fair sex, John has made friends easily, and is well known for his sense of humor, his appetite, and his ability with a pistol. Academics have posed no great problem for John. By showing the same hustle and detemiination that he dis- played on the athletic field and in the company, he has been a repeater many times on the Superintendent ' s List. After graduation John ' s plans aim toward Navy line. His preference is destroyers, and his choice of port is, of course. New York. 196 DAVID JOHN QUIRK Antigo, Wisconsin Whenever the dignified appearance of a group of Mid- shipmen was disrupted by a giggle, we all knew that Dave Quirk must be somewhere in the crowd. Dave ' s exceptional sense of humor made the change from the life of Antigo, Wisconsin, to that of the Academy a rela- tively easy one. Dave was a participant in numerous extracurricular activities, and a credit to each of them. The Russian Club, Masqueraders, Battalion tennis and squash teams. Photo Club, Public Relations Committee, Lucky Bag staff, and several company sports occupied a great deal of his time. With all this and despite his perpetual battle with the academic departments to keep his grades up to his standards, he was always ready to lend a helping hand when he was needed. Second class summer found Dave on the Piebe Detail. Here he won the devotion of those who worked with him and under him, showing a natural leadership ability. Sometimes it seemed as though Dave never took any- thing seriously, but he proved us wrong. Attending mass regularly at 0600 and working with the Newman Club showed his devotion to his God and everything in which he believed. No matter where he goes upon graduation, Dave will become known and liked. With his leadership ability, sense of humor, and exceptional drive and enthusiasm, Dave is sure to be one of the finest officers in our Navy. TERRY LYNN REEDER Tulare, California After graduating from Tulare Western High School, Terry brought with him a personality that won him many friends and helped him pass the rigors of plebe year. Sail- ing and German occupied much of his time at USNA. He did manage to lose a few battles to the " pad monster, " however. Study hours found Terry engaging in serious " cultural " exchanges with any classmates who should venture into the room. Though not at the top of his class, academics were never a worry to Terry and he seemed to find time on weekends for dragging and " re- laxing. " The surface fleet will be greatly enhanced by Terry ' s ability to get things done.

Mark came to USNA after graduating from the Bullis School in 1962. His transition from civilian to military life was quite easy, as one can tell from his plehe year nickname. He was fondly dubbed " Fearless Freddie " by his plebe year company officer who held him in great esteem. Mark has always been ambitious and energetic as can be seen from his academic and sports records here. He has been able to take in stride the regular curriculum and to add to the load by carrying overloads toward a Physics major. His sports ability is varied, and he has played plebe and Battalion swimming, ocean sailing, and Company soccer, cross-country, foot- ball, and Softball. In his spare time Mark had time to join and take an active part in the French Club. Mark is ami- able, and he will have no trouble making friends in the fleet. Although he likes USNA. he is eager to give the real Navy a chance very soon. He will be successful and will go far in his Naval career. STEPHEN FREDERICK ROHRKEMPER Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan Out of a maze of questionably successful primary educa- tion, forty-hour corporation work-weeks, and two years of off beat colleges sprang THE RHORK. determined to realign himself with a previously nonexistent purpose in life. Hence, began the Naval career of " two ' speed Rohrkemper " — all stop and all ahead flank. Steve ' s major problem to date has been his complete inability to maintain possession of his class pin. a short- coming that has rewarded himself and his classmates with many humorous moments. Having embarrassingly little difficulty academically, Steve spent most of his time adjusting to the military life which he has learned to thrive on. Although still un- decided, whether in the air or on the sea Steve can be counted on to do his part to maintain the most powerful Navy in the world. GILBERT VAN ROYAL Levillown, Pennsylvania The Big Teddy Bear with the perpetual smile, that ' s our boy Gil. Gil started smiling back in November of 1943 and hasn ' t stopped yet. Gil ' s early days were spent in New Jersey before moving across the border to his present home in Pennsylvania. He distinguished himself in tough Keystone athletic competition as a wrestler and football player. The Navy sent Gil to Bullis Prep for one year where he also excelled in football and studies. Plebe year would have inverted anyone ' s smile, bClt not that smile of Otis. Gil ' s great creative ability and jovial ways not only made the upperclass laugh hut boosted the morale of his classmates. Moving on in his life as a midshipman, Gil has become very interested in the fate of his brothers, who are also gridiron stalwarts. Gil ' s main interest, besides one certain person, is the stock market. With the combination of the mind of a shrewd lawyer, the body of Goliath and the per- sonality of a president, Gil will most likely be one of the more successful personalities of our class no matter where he goes. PETER ELON WALBERG Antigo, Wisconsin " Hey, Pete " became a familiar call for many of us who needed help with our homework. Yet, each time we called, we still found the same hard working, good natured fellow from West Salem. Wisconsin, ready to help. From 198 FIRST BATTALION FOURTH COMPANY PETER ELON WALBERG DAVID MATHIESON WALKER ,• of «= West Salem High Pete brought many talents and interests which proved to be an asset to the Brigade. Masqueraders, Juice Gang, Drum Bugle Corps, and Concert Band all lauded his abilities. Pete studied in earnest and gained both the Superin- tendent ' s List and Stars for his academic achievements. Despite a number of overloads, Pete still managed to spend many hours with tools in hand up in the Radio Shack. Company sports such as cross-country and light weight football also received his attention. Surely Pete ' s high scholastic average and friendly personality will help him attain success with his career in the Navy. DAVID MATHIESON WALKER Euslis, Florida When Dave left his " fun in the sun " at Eustis, Florida, to come to USNA, the first thing he discovered was the pushup. He soon overcame this situation, however, util- izing a drive and efficiency that placed him high among his classmates. A star man, Dave never had much trouble with academics, but could often be found burning the late, late midnight oil over ' " bull " ' and Spanish overloads. In the fall he could be found digging in with the " Mighty Mites, " while the rest of the year his devotions were turned toward fieldball and ocean sailing. His extra- curricular activities centering around Spanish Club, drag- ging, and trying to march in as few P-rades as possible. Dave was also fond of his weekends, of which he always seemed to make good use. Dave ' s academic abilities, coupled with his wit and initiative, will make him a wel- come addition to the ranks of Naval Aviation. CHARLES RICHARD WALTS Tuha, Oklahoma Rick, though a Sooner born and bred, has a flair for CHARLES RICHARD WALTS the cosmopolitan. His driving desire while at USNA has been to modify the atmosphere toward the more " col- legiate. " His open warmth and enthusiasm can be attested to by all those who know him. An outstanding baritone and tenor sax player for the NA-10, he has often been known to skip practice to drag his charming fiancee. Struggling toward a major in Weapons Systems, he has nevertheless found time to engage in his myriad and diverse interests. At graduation he should be, among other things, a most competent stereo system consultant. His choice is EDO. but, no matter where he ends up, he will be an invaluable addition to the Navy.

Here at the Academy he continued to wrestle while also maintaining a " star " ' average. His majors were Math and Nuclear Science, while his inter- ests were good times with roommates: the Kinz. the Cons, and the Clance. BEN LAMAR ANDERSON Bisbee, Arizona Ben came to the USNA via the Military Academy Prep school after serving one year in the Army. His home is Bisbee, Arizona but he spent most of his life out of the States. During the week, when not buried in his books in order to obtain his two majors. Ben can be found on the soccer field or quarterbacking for the Company heavyweight football team. His superior knowledge of foreign affairs has made him a valuable asset to the Foreign Relation Club, German Club, and French Club and also explains his desire to further his education in this field. With his winning personality. Ben kept a large group of friends. Although never in any serious academic difficulty, he finds his only two enemies to be the Academic and the Executive Departments. Upon graduation, in spite of his Army background, Ben plans a career in Naval Aviation. His over-all ability and desire to get ahead will definitely enable him to come out on top. BRYAN JAMES BURKE MonlpeUer, Vermont Bryan, leaving his skies at home in the mountains of Vermont, came directly to the Naval Academy upon graduating with honors from St. .Mary ' s High School in St. Albans. While at the Academy he participated enthusiastically in Company soccer, football, and lacrosse besides showing an interesting in shooting rifle. Bryan has always been more than willing to help out his class- mates with their academic troubles while carrying stars himself and majoring in bull. Although a hard and con- scientious worker. " B " did not find it necessary to sweat the system to rank high in standing with his classmates. On any free weekend he can be found schussing the near- est snowcapped mountain, and on a long weekend, 700 miles away at his home in Stowe. A reserved gentleman, Bryan will surely rise quickly to prominence in what- ever life endeavor he decides to undertake. FIRST BATTALION FIFTH COMPANY 203 ■ nM J. " ' ! .

Massachusetts Kevin Clancy came to Crabtowii from the Southern Shore of Massachusetts. An underaged chubby kid, Clance developed into a stalwart on the Batt football team and Company fieldball team. The Clance, known for his boyish grin, Irish temper, and fierce sense of competition, majored in keeping parties lively and minored in paying hotel bills. Everybody ' s pal, Clance has had no trouble making friends and should have no trouble in the future, whatever aspect of life he chooses. JAMES ROBERT CLARK Reseda, Calijoniia After graduating from Reseda High School in south- ern California. Jim spent a year of soft college life at UCLA under a regular NROTC scholarship. Hard work and initiative during this yea r at college earned him an appointment to Navy and for the next four years he was to see the West coast only twice each year. After two years at the Academy, hard work again rewarded Jim and earned him a star to pin over each anchor on his blues. In addition to stars Jim also received a major in both the bull and command departments. Wlien he was not hitting the books, though, his interests lay with the Battalion tennis and water polo teams. NAFAC and NACA also took up much of his free time. Jim never seemed to be without a friendly word or cheery hello and his smile will be missed around Bancroft Hall. He ' s got wings on his mind, though, and he ' ll most likely be heading toward Pensacola, Florida for flight training. CURTIS BLACKMAN COOK Del Norte, Colorado From the ski slopes of Colorado Curt came to the Academy directly from high school. Apparently he liked plebe year, because he went through it twice. The Aca- demic Department had to fight for a fair share of his time. His bed seemed to be his prime interest with the studies taking a way-behind second. He was a member of the Spanish Club, the Gun Club and the Prop. Gang. While at the Academy Curt has been a member of the varsity sailing team, during the Fall and Spring sport season. In the winter he has confined his activities to the Company cross country team and the pad. His goal is to be an aviator. In the future we can expect to see him flying every time he gets a chance to do so. JACK CONNOLLY Scituate, Massaehusetls Jack came to us from Scituate, Mass. via Bullis Prep. With a history of athletic success it was only natural for him to distinguish himself here, playing more time than anyone for the Big Blue, and showing his ability through three varsity seasons. Confident he ' s done fairly well on the ground Jack is anxious to try his hand at flying — his aim since he arrived here. We ' ll all miss his great wit ' and the fact he ' s been a fine friend to many of us during our four vears here. 204 FIRST BATTALION FIFTH COMPANY JACK CONNOLLY MICHAEL JON DALEY MICHAEL J0 DALEY Bent Fork, Wyoming Mick, known to his friends as " the Sticker " came to us from Bent Fork. Wyoming. In high school he majored in study hall and gym. played football, and worried. At L ' SNA, he majored in passing, and worried. Being a quiet, conservative man, he easily adopted the routine here, even to the extent of staying in the hal l on many weekends just so that he would be available if needed by the officer of the watch. On the sports field, the Sticker played a lot of basketball, football, and softball for his Battalion and Company. Being small did not hold him back in football; on the contrary, it helped him to gain a stalwart position on the lightweight ' s team. Good luck to the little man from Bent Fork. We know that his even temperament and fine abilities will hold him in good stead all the w ay to the top. WILLIA I PAUL DORNSIFE Gordon, Pennsylvania Although one of the youngest members of the Class of " 66. Bill ' s academic excellence was surpassed by very few of his classmates, thus enabling him to retain perma- nent membership on the list of " Navy Starmen. " With his academic interests completely imder control, Bill spent no meager amount of time writing letters to the " girl back home " — home being, of course, the Hard Coal regions of Pennsylvania. From an athletic standpoint, his talents were well demonstrated by Bill ' s performance as quarterback on the Company lightweight football team. Certainlv these talents, along with innumerable WILLIAM PAUL DORNSIFE others less outstanding but of prime necessity to a pro- fessional man, provided a firm foundation upon which to build hi? military career. 205 i i " T " iiw i FIRST BATTALION FIFTH COMPANY CLINTON JEFFERSON FARMER JOHN THOMAS FREDERIKSEN RONALD JOSEPH HURLOCK RONALD JOSEPH HURLOCK Juneau, Alaska From far-off Juneau, Alaska, Ron came to USNA among the best prepared for our fine Maryland winters. A hard worker, Ron managed to make his mark on both the athletic fields and the Academic Departments, being quite versatile in each. One of the " old men " of the company, he has set quite an example with his quiet, mature mannerisms. Always appreciative of the military way of life, Ron will no doubt be a credit to the Navy for many years to come. CLINTON JEFFERSON FARMER Woodland, Maine As a heavy " down-east " accent hinted. Clint came to the Academy from Woodland. Maine. A year at Maine Cen- tral Institute left Clint well prepared for academics, and he never found himself on the wrong side of the books. His constantly friendly, good-natured personality made him extremely popular with his classmates and a valued friend. Intramural sports showed Clint to be a good athlete and rugged competitor, making his presence felt in Company soccer and football, and Battalion rugby. A New Englander at heart, Clint was more than ready to spend his winter weekends in search of good skiing. His quick wit and always pleasant personality will as- sure success in whatever field he applies his talents. JOHN THOMAS FREDERIKSEN El Dorado, Kansas Fred came to the Naval Academy from El Dorado, Kansas after two years as a chemistry major in junior college. Although chemistry continued to be his main interest, he kept his academic ability well hidden through his casual mannerisms and easy-going approach towards life. He spent most of his afternoons on the cross-country course, where he was an outstanding runner in intra- niurals. or in the ring as a Brigade boxer. The only thing Fred enjoyed more than " peanuts " was Naval Aviation, and the only things he enjoyed more than flying were the girls he dragged on the weekends. As a much sought after bartender at any party, he adeptly demonstrated the techniques he learned so well in the chemistry laboratorv. The future holds a lo t for Fred whether it be in the air or on the sea, and the Fleet will welcome such an able officer. J. W. KINSEY Pompton Lakes, New Jersey Joe graduated from Pompton Lakes High in 1961, coming to the Naval Academy after spending a year at Auburn University. At the Academy Joe took a keen in- terest in athletics — especially football — but his career ended second class year with the recurrence of an old knee injury. 206 J. W. KINSEY PETER JOSEPH LENIART RALPH RAYMOND McCUMBER If not studying, Joe could usually be found before the " Tube " . Long remembered will be the times spent in the " Cage " hiding the " Tube " from the OOW. After graduation Joe will head south to Pensacola if he can get by the physical. His friendly personality and sense of humor make him a very popular and respected member of the Brigade as they will sene to aid him in talking his place in the fleet. PETER JOSEPH LEXIART ew Haven, Connecticut Peter came to us from NAPS. One of the distinguished gentlemen of the Fifth Company. P. J. was the counter- part to the Air Force ' s Bed Check Charlie. As " Head Check Jose " , he led the Brigade in its support of the Navy team when they were number 2 in the nation in football. Pete always has had trouble with academics, but managed to drag most weekends, have fun at all the parties he could get to. and just plain enjoy his term at school. Good luck to Pete in his planned Navy career. DAVID ALAN PATCH R. ' VLPH RAYMOND McCUMBER Decatur, Georgia Ralph, better known as Slim, or Chumber, comes to Boat School from Decatur, Georgia. An outstanding ath- lete and president of his class in high school, Ralph has followed the same trend while at the Academy. Two years on the Mighty Mites are his primary athletic achievements, while he has remained on Supt ' s list for most of his stay here. Strong on leave or liberty, but not too indulgent of conservative profs, Chumber is able to maintain his cools under almost all conditions. Naval Aviation looks like the ticket for this fellow, if he can just keep that knee out of a vice. But whatever his choice, he is sure to make an outstanding officer. DAVID ALAN PATCH Westport, Connecticut This sports car rallying, ski slope bombing sailboater came to USNA via BuUis Prep while serving a year in the Naval Reserve. When not sailing on the Shields team, Dave could be found out on the intramural football field. Dave is a conscientious worker both with academics and int ramurals. He was always ready to help a class- mate or a plebe in bad straits, both academic and per- sonal. His friendly out-going personality explains why Dave is always lucky in love and a rave with the femmes. Famous for his Army game parties, he will be a definite asset to the social aspects of the Naval Service where he will be found rising quickly up through the ranks. 207 - " " ' " ' " 1 luiiAvi ' pji ji.ijjnjiiiBvinnBnBmiHi WELLER ABNER PHILLIPS JOSE del ROSARIO SANCHEZ-PETIT WELLER ABNER PHILLIPS III Walnut Creek, California Weller arrived on the banks of the Severn after grad- uating from Los Loraas High School, in California, with less than an adequate knowledge of what lay ahead. In fact, he barely knew the name of the state in which An- napolis was located. Adjusting in time to Academy life, Weller soon took up a major in Social Science, while com- peting extracurricularly in Battalion handball and squash. Trips to Atlanta, Georgia, and memories of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, occupied Wap ' s mind when he was not en- gaged in accumulating " pad time. " Academics proved S .S P no problem for Weller, an above average student, main- ly because he would never allow them to do so. A keen mind and an affable personality will definitely help Weller to succeed in whatever field he may choose upon graduation. JOSe del ROSARIO SANCHEZ-PETIT Caracas, Venezuela Joe came to the Naval Academy after one year of college and two years at the Naval Academy in his country, Venezuela. His early troubles in overcoming the complexifies of the English language never kept Joe from excelling in academics, for which he wore stars con- tinually after plebe year. He gained the friendship of nearly everyone around, both in the classroom and on the company athletic fields every afternoon. His Latin American charms also seemed appealing to many local drags who were continually trying to " hook " him for good. He was associated with the Spanish Club, and in " bull " sessions he could always be counted on for stories of his many adventures before coming to this country. While here, Joe contributed much to the mutual understanding between our two countries, and we all wish him the best of luck and future success as an officer in the Venezuelan Navy. JOHN TURNER SCUDI Morristown, New Jersey Morristown, New Jersey is famous not only as a colonial community, but also as the home of the " Scoot- er. " The Naval Reserve and Morristown Prep provided an How did he get into the picture!? r« JOHN TURNER SCUDI THOMAS JOSEPH SMISEK MYLES CHARLES STILL excellent background for life at the Academy. No one has been able to determine his main interest, but his pro- fessors have assured us that it is not academics. We highly suspect that it is that certain O.A.O. who occupies much of his time on the weekends. Athletics play a big part in John ' s week, especially Company football. A shat- tered ankle ended a promising career in Lacrosse during his youngster year. After sending his TV home second class year, he found the antiphonal choir a worthwhile way to spend part of his evenings. Always ready with a friendly word in the hall, Scooter is a good friend and an outstanding man. His natural charm and acute awareness of people mark him for an enviable future. THOMAS JOSEPH SMISEK Coronado, Calijomia Surfer Tom came to USNA from Coronado, Cali- fornia, where he developed a great love for surfin ' , which he never lost. Tom, a natural athlete with a sprinter ' s speed, was a stalwart on the Batt football team, the Company basketball five and the Company Softball team. Tom with his carefree attitude was well liked by all and even though he found studying more difficult than listening to the " Beach Boys " he wore stars for his outstanding academic achievements. With his fierce de- sire to get the job done and done well, Tom should go a long way in whatever field he decides to enter. MYLES CHARLES STILL Cheyenne, Wyoming Myles came to the Academy from Cheyenne, Wyoming, where he graduated from St. Mary ' s High School and where he gained his nickname of Mouse. During his stay on the banks of the Severn, he was the mainstay of the Company Cross Country Team and added the assets of his 6 ' 3 " ' height to the Company and Battalion Basket- ball Teams. An athlete in high school, he was quick to take advantage of the sports program at the Academy. Well liked by all who knew him. Mouse ' s western wit was matched only by his easy going outlook on life and a distinct abiUty to not let the rigors of the system bother him. Although having no difficulty with studies, by youngster year Myles ' s chief interests turned to those hours of bliss in bed and to dragging. A rich and prom- ising future awaits this Wyoming gentleman as he bids adieu to a brother in the class of ' 68 and heads for a career in Navv Line. FIRST BATTALION FIFTH COMPANY 209 . ' .- ' .

Having gained high school football honors in Bronxville be continued his winning ways during Battalion football seasons at the Academy. No less notable were his efforts in the intramurals of fieldball and softball. His other endeavors at USNA included the French Club, weekends devoted to academics, and extending a helping hand to all. Don ' s sense of humor, pleasant nature, and ambition to succeed placed him high in his classmates ' esteem and Brigade standings. By his dedication and ability Don is assured a very promising future in Navy Line. ANDREW NORMAN TORIELLO Niks, Ohio Andy came to the .Academy from Ohio, where he had attended a year of school at Case Institute. He therefore had little trouble adjusting himself to the engineering curriculum which awaited him here. Always working very hard at everything, especially academics, he always managed to receive good grades. His main sporting in- terests laid in boxing and wrestling. Andy ' s cheerful personaUty and his willingness to help anyone at ail in any sort of need made him well liked by all of his class- mates. It is certain that whichever service he chooses, it will gain a conscientious, hard working officer. 210 RAYMOND D. WOOLRICH Mt. Vernon, Neiv York Ray, who comes from Ml. Vernon, New York, left the Ivy League set at Cornell to become a full time member of the Navy team. He is a " hard charger " in all aspects of Navy life. His athletic excellence is demonstrated by his team spirit on the " Mighty Mites " and his vigor as a Brigade boxer. With a philosophy of " 100% effort at all times, " Ray found himself with both Superintendent ' s List and stars. His Nuclear Science major and his avid interest in submarines make him a prime candidate for nuclear power school. Aside from his professional in- terests Ray enjoys the fair sex, dancing and an occasion- al swim. His seriousness and personal example coupled with his leadership ability will provide the Navy with an outstanding officer. PHILIP EUGENE ZIEGLER Lancaster, New York Shunning a chance to become a Cadet, Zig chose the Blue and Gold after graduating from Lancaster High School in New York. Academics have posed no problem for this lanky blond, except possibly those of his class- mates. When not out " touring " Hospital Point, Zig can usually be found occupying his blue trampwline. His major in Nuclear Science seems to point to a future in submarines, but he has also considered donning the Green. Whatever his final decision, his quiet friendli- ness, unperturbable nature, and outstanding abilities will surely mark him for success. RAYMOND D. WOOLRICH PHILIP EUGENE ZIEGLER 211 uj. " ■ ' I ' .

After a year at Bainbridge, he sud- denly found himself at USNA, ready to tackle plebe year. His quick wit and easy laugh helped him through the trials of a plebe, and they continue to be chief among his many outstanding assets. Dave has had many home states, including Kentucky, Alaska, and Florida. This varied background has enriched his personality and has enabled him to bring to the Academy a refreshing outlook on life. Second Class summer served to fortify Dave ' s desire to wear the wings of gold. With his de- termination and drive, the Navy will gain an officer destined for a fine career no matter which field he chooses. HAROLD JEAN BURKHART Orlando, Florida Gene left his native Orlando, Florida for San Diego and Boot Camp in 1960. From San Diego he went up the coast to FT School and then cross country to Sub- marine School. While at New London, he received or- ders to report to NAPS, and after a year on the Sus- queharma, Gene came to the shores of the Severn. With the exception of a minor scrimmage with the Language Department plebe year and another as a second class- man with the Navigation Department, academics were no major problem for Gene. He usually found time for plenty of outside reading, as well as long workouts on his blue trampoline. Although a man of few words, when he spoke, especially about electronics, he was listened to. Throughout his four years at USNA he lent his athletic abilities to various intramural sports, especially Battalion Rugby, which he discovered youngster year. After grad- uation Gene plans to return to his native Florida and earn his " Wings of Gold. " But. should his eyes fail him. Gene plans to join the Greyhounds of the Fleet. Either way the Navy will gain a fine officer. STEPHEN PATRICK CLARK Joplin, Missouri Steve came to the Naval Academy directly from Joplin Senior High School in Joplin, Missouri. He fell easily into the routine at the Academy, and quickly became one of the most well liked members of his class. Steve excelled in academic work, and he was on Superintend- ent ' s List through most of his four years here. Steve was very interested in foreign languages, and graduated with a major in Spanish. His extracurricular activities included the Spanish Club, the Foreign Relations Club, and an annual workout with the swimming sub squad. Though he wasn ' t an enthusiastic swimmer, Steve was an aggressive athlete and very active in company sports, participating in volleyball, football and softball. His friendly manner, determination, and leadership qualities will make Steve ' s future in the Navy all that he deserves. FIRST BATTALION SIXTH COMPANY 215 jtr.jT ' ty ?. ,,r,-, „»T« ' Wfoean JOHN WILLIAM DOHERTY LAWRENCE JOSEPH EARLY JAMES FRANCIS GIBLIN JOHN WILLIAM DOHERTY Red Bank, New Jersey " Doc " arrived at USNA via the Peddie School in his home state, New Jersey. Right from the start it seemed that everyone was looking for " Doc " when it came time to find out an answer to one of those numberless professional questions. His copy of Janes was widely known throughout the old first wing. His reputation followed him and many a plebe could be found looking for " Mr. Doherty " for an answer. His ability was not limited, by any means, to the area of professional questions. Many a classmate sought help from " Doc " when it came time for those ever-present P-works in Bull. Weapons, and Navigation. A consistent member of the Superintendent ' s List and one who took advantage of the Overload Program to its fullest, " Doc " has proved beyond question his academic capability. Each fall and spring would find " Doc " plying the waters of the Chesapeake in those stout little craft, the YP ' s. as a member of the YP Squadron. His winters were occupied by Company cross-country and foot- ball coupled with an avid passion for wrestling. Youngster Cruise saw " Doc " with his beloved surface ships. But, as with many, second class summer intro- duced him to Naval Aviation, a subject for which he developed a keen interest. Either way, surface or air, " Doc " will make an outstanding contribution to the Navy. LAWRENCE JOSEPH EARLY WatcrvUet, New York After graduating from LaSalle Institute, a military high school near his hometown of Watervliet, New York, Larry had less trouble transitioning to life at USNA than did most of our classmates. Being an avid member of the leisure class, Larry ' s favorite activities centered around wine, women, and song with frequent " time outs " for his beloved bed. Larry ' s fine and versatile athletic abilities proved a valuable asset to many a Company soc- cer and field-ball team. Despite a great interest in sports, Larry ' s favorite season of the year was always Christmas time, when he would return to the hills of upstate New York for two weeks of fun and frolic in the snow. With his quick wit, easy going personality, and ready smile, Larry will be a sure success in any field he chooses to pursue. JAMES FRANCIS GIBLiN Cedar Grove, New Jersey Arriving at the Naval Academy after a year at Notre Dame, Jim donned his new uniforms and immediately assumed command. Renowned for his lively personality and red hair, he strove to attain the best at the Academy and in doing so gained the utmost respect of his class- mates. After being assigned to the plebe detail, Jim quickly became the terror of the watch squad during the sum- mer. He embarked upon an Engineering major and attained considerable success in its pursuit. Unfortunate- ly, Jim ' s capacity for work soon became known to his company officer, who immediately set before him var- ious tasks of increasing complexity. During Second Class year, Jim was the wonder of the Weapons Department, since considerable confusion developed as to whether or not he had a twin brotlier teaching in Ward Hall. His " living in pain " theory was die amazement of his class- mates and the envy of the Executive Department. What- ever he may do, it is certain that he will go far. for his drive and vigor are second to none. PETER J. JANULIS West New York, New Jersey Pete came to the Naval Academy after spending a year with the Ivy Leaguers at Brown University. After a year on the plebe football and track teams, he de- cided to sacrifice sports for academics, and since then 216 FIRST BATTALION h i SIXTH COMPANY PETER J. JANULIS ROBERT GREY JOHNSON, JR. (iffKT aiNotie aetfy !i!i»alit; Adany kiscte- aqjiiily ijoi aDii [ortmatfr mtoiuj kintal- -• Ci-; Bills bis das- , far. !« ' has regularly left for home on a Supt ' s List weekend. However, his athletic ability has not gone to waste and he has been a valuable member of several intramural teams. Pete ' s sense of humor and friendliness have made him popular among those who know him, while his academic and leadership abilities have kept his class standing high. He is still undecided between the Navy and the Marine Corps, but either service can be sure of gaining a fine officer. ROBERT GREY JOHNSON, JR. Denver, Colorado Bob had his eyes on the Naval Academy since his early days at Webster Groves high school in St. Louis, where he was graduated with honors. After studying pre-law at Washington University, Bob traded fraternity life for that of a midshipman. Academics seemed to come easy for Bob, and he divided much of his time between athletics and the functions of the Brigade Ac- tivities Committee and the Newman Club. In sports, he started in his winning ways by setting several records as a standout on the undefeated plebe swimming team. Varsity competition proved no obstacle as he excelled in the breaststroke and individual medley. Always having an interest in government, he focused his academic at- tention toward a major in political science. Even with such a busy routine. Bob never seemed to let his social life suffer. His maturity, devotion to the service, and good sense of humor insure the Navy of an outstanding officer. JAMES PETER KELLY Manasquan, New Jersey Coming from his home in New Jersey, Jim accepted his commission as a midshipman in order to fulfill his life ' s ambition, to go to sea. In high school, he was active in all aspects of student life, lettering hi soccer. Jim, JAMES PETER KELLY being an easy going and friendly person, has made many friends at USNA. At the Academy, Jim has been an ac- tive member of the Scuba Club and intramural sports. Except for science, the academics and Jim have had no real difficulties, as exhibited by the variety of overloads he took on the way to obtaining his Mechanical Engi- neering major. The Superintendent ' s List was always that one step away, even though he always did his best. An avid car enthusiast, he could always be counted on for the latest issues of almost any car magazine. After graduation he plans a career in the destroyer Navy. His enthusiasm and keen interest should give this branch of the Navy another top officer. 217 m FIRST BATTALION SIXTH COMPANY THOMAS CRAIG KILDEBECK ROLAND EDWARD KING, JR. " I can ' t believe you just said that, Mr. Gish. ' X THOMAS CRAIG KILDEBECK Torrington, Wyoming The tall, handsome cowboy came to Crabtown with one goal — get the job done and have as much fun as possible. Applying the combination of brains, witty per- sonality, organizational ability, unbelievable good luck, and an uncanny ability to deceive classmates and officers, he has come as close as possible to beating the system. This to Tom was liberty and dragging. Tom has set an all time record in most girls dragged in four years. He had this down to such a fine science that he was able to get credit for restriction musters while escorting young ladies to Saturday night hops. Although his social life occupied most of his time, it can not be said that the cowboy wasn ' t diversified. To him all clubs and organizations meant good deals and good deals meant liberty and girls. He thus became very active in the French, German, and Foreign Relations clubs. He served on the Hop Committee and was chair- man of the Second Class Ring Dance Committee. Mr. Organization will be remembered for organizing and giving a very memorable Ring Dance. He played plebe and varsity soccer and plebe track. To keep up the ap- pearance he wore stars because, in his words, they im- pressed the girls. What ' s in the future for him in the outside world nobody knows, but if it contains a good deal, Tom will find it. ROLAND EDWARD KING, JR. Spokane, Washington Guy came to the Academy after graduating from Lewis Clark High School in Spokane, Washington. While at the Academy, Guy excelled in both sports and academics. In spite of taking a nimiber of elective courses and spending his weekends dragging, Guy maintained a high academic average, majoring in mathematics. His athletic WAYNE REED LYNN WILLIAM JOSEPH McMENAMIN HAROLD JEROME MYNETT endeavors were chiefly devoted to Battalion water polo and Company basketball. His plans include a career under the sea. Guy ' s well-mannered and quick-witted personality add up to an outstanding addition to the Navy ' s great corps of officers. WAYNE REED LYNN San Diego, California Wayne came to Navy from San Diego. He combined an interest in sports (he is particularly fond of surfing) and a Naval background (his father is a retired Com- mander) to bring with him a keen competitive spirit for Naval Academy life. Academics haven ' t always been easy for Wayne, but diligent work has brought him into the majors field in German. With the absence of surf- ing on the Academy sports agenda, he has adopted touch football as his favorite activity, and has used his high school football skills to advantage on our fields. As far as Wayne ' s career plans are concerned. Naval Aviation seems to have the advantage. Once he had over- come his reluctance to air travel during second class flight training, his main thoughts were in this direction. Wayne has the typicial Californian attitude toward girls, pre- ferring those of the West Coast. He should have little trouble finding the right one with his pleasant, friendly outlook on life. WILLIAM JOSEPH McMENAMIN Philadelphia, Pennsylvania A native of Philadelphia, where he learned the street version of touch football. Bill came to USNA with a yearning for a well-rounded education, with a special interest in literature. He finds his greatest happiness reading a deep novel or playing his beloved guitar; his greatest triumph in winning an argument or catching a touchdown pass. Because he believes in physical as well as mental de- velopment, Bill has always put out maximum effort in athletics, whether as an end on the Company football team, or as a miler for the Battalion track team. Though he missed the joys of Pensacola, Bill gained professional and personal satisfaction on the plebe detail during his second class summer. Bill ' s plans for the future are still a little hazy, but with his casual and mature ability to accept whatever fate befalls him, he is sure to make the most of any of life ' s situations and opportunities. HAROLD JEROME MYNETT Bloomingclale, New Jersey Bud came to the Naval Academy directly from Butler High School, located in a small town of northern New Jersey. He soon adjusted to the rigors of a midshipman ' s life, and began to carry out his duties with the competent and unassuming manner which distinguished his four years at the Academy. Plebe year found him as the outstanding shot putter on the track team, but he gave up varsity athletics in order to carry a heavier academic load. Books were never a problem to Bud, with tlie exception of a certain engi- neering course second class year. By doing his usual good job on the basic curriculum, he was able to secure a major in his first love, English Literature. Bud spent much of his ' " free time " as an active mem- ber of the Catholic Choir, and on the staff of the 1966 Lucky Bag. In his sojourn as a midshipman. Bud never lost his straight forward individualism nor allowed the swift pace of a challenging routine to alter his principles. Because of this and his ability to do the job. Bud will make a superlative officer in the Surface Navy. 219 191 FIRST BATTALION SIXTH COMPANY MICHAEL ANTHONY OPENING THOMAS CECIL RUNKLE LELAND CHARLES COOKE SAGE LELAND CHARLES COOKE SAGE Waukegan, Illinois Straight from high school in Waukegan, Illinois, Lee put the rush on Canoe U. Always able to get the grades when they counted, he placed more emphasis on his golden soul than on spending long hours in con- centrated academic thought. Dividing his free time be- tween his two favorite hangouts, the intramural basket- ball court and the dance floor, Lee always kept the spectators staring. He is best known for his ability to get into and out of tough situations, while still re- maining in good humor. Upon graduation, Lee hopes to move his bed to Pensacola, where he will go all out for those long dreamed-about gold wings. MICHAEL ANTHONY ODENING Silver Spring, Maryland A Navy Junior and a resident of Silver Spring, Mary- land, Mike was well-prepared for his life at the Naval Academy as a midshipman. While a plebe, Mike was fairly adept at remaining unobtrusive except for a bath- robe-clad encounter with the Officer of the Watch on the terrace behind Smoke Hall. Trying to avoid the wrath of the Officers of the Watch while studying into the wee morning hours, Mike pulled good grades, es- pecially in Physics, his major. Mike ' s affability and even temper stood him in good stead throughout the on- slaughts of his practical-joking roommates. Judging from the model of the SSBN George Washington hidden be- hind the pipes and books on his desk, Mike was inter- ested in Nuclear Submarines, but, when asked, he in- dicated no preference either for surface or sub-surface ships. In either event, the Navy will gain a valuable career officer. THOMAS CECIL RUNKLE Hickory, North Carolina Tom, better known to everyone as Runk, came to us from the backwoods of the North Carolina mountains after a fruitful year at VMI. His many friends at the Academy soon realized that he had a burning desire to learn a reasonable facsimile of standard English, and that in return for any help he would gladly teach what he knew best, hog-calling and moonshine distillation. Knowing that someday he would have to return to his mountain feuds, Tom participated in the Brigade boxing program and developed a vicious right cross. AUhough never one to take the system too seriously, he courted a can of Ajax steadily for four years. He was the only midshipman in the Brigade who could come out of an exam thinking he had missed every question, and then wind up with an A. Tom was one to see a good deal through a brick wall, and he took advantage of many good deals through his work on the Hop Committee. His future certainly holds success in whatever he does as a Naval officer, but one cannot help feeling that 220 HARRY GRADY SHARP, JOHN FLEET SIGLER MICHAEL DANNY SMITH his heart beats fastest at the sight of a wayward piglet in need of a hog-call. HARRY GRADY SHARP. HI Lake Tahoe, California Harry, a Navy junior, came to the Academy with two things — a knowledge of the world and a desire to go to the moon. He decided to concentrate on the first and became a self-appointed expert on foreign affairs. This always smiling, seemingly unassuming, one-man United Nations could solve any world problem and didn ' t mind telling you about it. He started out his sporting interests by earning numer- als in plebe rifle. Then someone introduced this " I ' ll try anything once character " to the game of rugby, and he took to it like a duck takes to water. For two seasons every year, he got pounded, beaten, battered, and bruised, but always came smiling back for more. There is only one thing to say about " Mercury ' s " future — he is bound to be his country ' s first ambas- sador to the moon. JOHN FLEET SIGLER Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Fulfilling a life-long desire, John, an Army brat, came to the Naval Academy directly from high school. Being from Philadelphia, he was naturally turned to for arrang- ing Army-Navy game parties. These parties, plus an at- tractive sister, helped soften the many rigors of Plebe year. Later on, his sports car helped soften the many rigors of dating. John was always friendly and easy to get along with except when aroused f rom one of the many hours he logged in bed. An outstanding student, he was on both the Superintendent ' s and Stars Lists. Despite his studies, he still managed to find time for the Lucky Bag, French Club. Public Relations Committee, and Ring Dance Committee. Tlie Navy has in John an outstanding officer. BURKE PROGRAM " Don ' t look now but we ' re being followed! n4u» « | Bii m DARYL CARLTON SPELBRING WILBUR COBB TRAFTON MICHAEL DANNY SMITH Alexandria, Virginia Mike, an Air Force junior, came to USNA after graduating from the Air Force Academy High School. He decided, after seeing the Air Force Academy, to spend his college years at Navy. Mike ' s stay in Colorado origi- nated the subjects of many discussions. His roommates were soon to hear numerous descriptions of the life and mountains in Colorado. While he distinguished himself as a swimmer at Air Force Academy High School, Mike chose to channel his efforts toward company and bat- talion sports at USNA. Never a man to spend an ex- cessive amount of time with his books, Mike gained a wide-spread reputation as a " pad hound. " One of Mike ' s greatest interests is traveling, as evidenced by his sum- mer ventures to Hawaii and Europe. While his favorite love was his bed, he was always ready to drag and did so many weekends. Mike ' s ability to keep well ahead of the Academic Department while having other such varied " interests " demonstrates his potential to do well in any field he chooses to enter. DARYL CARLTON SPELBRING Sacramento, Calijornia Daryl was born and raised in sunny California where the easy life has made him mild mannered and easy to get along with. Affectionately called " Sterile " by his class- mates, he excelled at such sports as tennis, squash, swim- ming and cross-country. After two years at Cal Poly, Daryl found the academic routine at the Academy both stimulating and invigorating. He made the best of each opportunity to educate himself, thus becoming academ- ically and professionally proficient. Inspired by the feats of the inunortal Wright Brothers, Daryl had accepted the challenge of flight and studied diligently in that pursuit. His motivation and drive will, without doubt, make him a fine Naval aviator. WILBUR COBB TRAFTON Boston, Massachusetts Arriving at The BoUes School in Jacksonville, Florida, from his native Honduras, Wil early demonstrated the athletic and leadership abilities which were to serve him so well as the Academy. After plebe summer boxing, Wil made his place on the undefeated plebe soccer team. Continuing with the varsity he made a habit of winning and of beating Army. He played on the first unit of the squads that were second in the NCAA in 1963 and first in 1964. Tlie " N " Club was, of course, a big part of these years. Wil ' s Honduran childhood gave him a natural back- ground in Spanish which led to many friendships in the Spanish Club. In general, studies didn ' t offer much of a challenge so Wil easily found time to devote to the friendly pursuit of the opposite sex. What more can be said of a man with a sharp wit and a sincere friendliness? We like him. 222 NILE ADEE VAIL Tucson, Arizona An Air Force junior. Nile made the transition to Navy life without any major problems and soon took to the water, putting in many hours on the Severn with the Navy crew. A native of Arizona, Nile speaks flu ent Spanish, the field of his major. He was a member of the Spanish Club, the Naval Academy Christian Associa- tion. Officers ' Christian Union, and the N Club during his stay at Navy. Except for a close call with the Depart- ment of English, History, and Government during Youngster year, Nile had little trouble with studies and could be found trying to figure out ways to get home over the infrequent leaves. The future sees a career in Navy Line and a fellow, who. as a midshipman, was al- ways even tempered and easy to get along with, as long as you didn ' t try to get along with him early in the morning. The Service has gained an enthusiastic officer in Nile. BRUCE LEON VALLEY Rye, New Hampshire Bruce, a native of Rye. New Hampshire, came to the Academy from Phillips Exeter Academy. He spent part of Plebe Summer with a broken leg from playing Plebe soccer, but this didn ' t keep him down once the academic year started. In the midst of plebe year, he found himself in almost more activities than he could handle. He did handle them, though, through all four years. Bruce is an avid musician, and there was hardly a musical group in the Academy in which he did not have some part. He was in the Catholic Choir, the Drum and Bugle Corps, where he was a soloist and musical arranger, the concert band, and the NA-10 orchestra which he led, beginning Second Class year. Bruce also got into the literary spotlight with his work on The Log. In sports, he was the sparkplug of his Company soccer and field- ball teams. Bruce was not an engineering student, as many of us weren ' t, and he spent many busy hours trying to make sense out of steam tables and impedance formulas, but if you were to ask him some question, however obscure, on any author or piece of literature, you would be surprised at his vast understanding and store of facts. Bruce ' s graduation plans call for flying; he is very interested in ASW work. His future should bring nothing but success and happiness. Bruce is a great friend to all and a wonderful person to know. NILE ADEE VAIL FIRST BATTALION SIXTH COMPANY .. ,,,] BRUCE LEON VALLEY 223 SECOND CLASSMEN Back Row; E. J. Hepp, Jr., J. W.

California Gavin Arnold came to LSNA from Thousand Oaks, California. He showed his leadership ability at the end of plebe summer by leading his platoon to first place in the platoon competition. Lucky never had any aca- demic problems, so he had plenty of time to concentrate on either his deck of cards or his bed. He is also noted for his singing ability which he utilizes in the chapel choir. At the conclusion of classes, he is usually found over in Macdonough Hall working on his routine for the gymnastics team. After graduation. Lucky hopes to return to the warm, sunny climate that he loves; not Thousand Oaks, but Pensacola. CHRISTIAN WILLIAM BRIX Chicago, Illinois Having graduated from Lane Tech High School in Chicago and attended three semesters at Illinois Institute of Technology, it was only natural that Chris decided to battle the Engineering Department for his major. His experience on the Great Lakes as a sailor also contributed to his Academy activities since Fall and Spring invariably found him braving the icy winds of the Chesapeake with the Naval Academy Sailing Squadron. Winter was his time for releasing his competitive spirit with fencing, rugby, or fieldball. When not sailing, scrapping, study- ing, or catching up on the latest Micky Spillane thriller, Chris could be found guarding his pillow and mattress. He could always be aroused, however, at the prospect of a good argument about drags or politics. With his tech- nical background and competitive spirit, barring the unforseen, Chris should be a very valuable asset to the Navy as an aviator. BRENT ARNOLD CANADAY Wantagh, Neiv York Brent, who hails from Wantagh, New York, graduated from Wantagh High and then attended BuUis Prep for a year where he gained many friends who were to hold him in high esteem throughout his four years at the Naval Academy. Brent, a high school letter winner in wrestling and football, fitted in well with the Academy ' s athletic program where he was a welcome addition to intramural basketball, volleyball, and Softball, in which he demonstrated his ability as a team player and an energetic competitor. Brent ' s competitive spirit aided him in his academic pursuits where he managed to beat the curve with a minimum amount of endeavor. His un- canny ability in academics and " his keen sense of fair play coupled with his Navy junior background make Brent one to admire. As his future unfolds, Brent and the Navy will be mutually rewarded. SECOND BATTALION SEVENTH COMPANY 229 mmmm. RICHARD FRANCIS CARLBERG BRIAN SULLIVAN CRONYN RICHARD JACKSON DENTON RICHARD FRANCIS CARLBERG Jf ' inston-Salem, North_ Carolina After graduation from R. J. Reynolds High School, Dick left his home in North Carolina in search of new challenges on the banks of the Severn. His sense of humor and his ability to laugh at anything proved to be valuable assets in overcoming the trials and tribulations of plebe year. His athletic prowess was devoted mainly to the support, of his company, particularly in basketball and volleyball. During his free time, Dick could always be found either in the rack or on liberty. Convinced that the only real Navy is in the air, he is looking forward to attending flight school shortly after graduation. His easy going manner and genuine friendliness have won him the respect of his classmates and friends and will undoubtedly continue to do so long after he has left USNA. BRIAN SULLIVAN CRONYN Detroit, Michigan Brian entered the Academy after spending two years at the University of Detroit. Having little trouble with the academics, Brian had plenty of time to devote to his role as an ardent supporter of the " Big Blue Team, " attending as many away football games as the Executive Department would permit. When Brian wasn ' t in bed or listening to the stereo he was out on the playing field participating in intramural football, volleyball, Softball, or basketball, in all of which he excelled. Always easy to get along with and ever-ready to help out a shipmate in need, Brian has gained the friendship and respect of all of those who have come in close contact with -him. Brian has his head set on Naval Aviation, and with his determination and strong desire not to lose he will achieve his goal of " Golden Wings, " or whatever other field he strives for in the Naval Service. RICHARD JACKSON DENTON KnoxviUe, Tennessee Dick came to USNA from KnoxviUe, Tennessee, straight out of West High School. He soon found that salt water suited him fine and as a result spent most of his after- noons on the Chesapeake Bay as a member of the YP Squadron. When the Bay froze in the winters, the " Ten- nessee Twister " turned his talents to fieldball and be- came a valuable member of his team. Although he always purported to only be trying for the " Gentleman ' s C, " Dick never had any trouble with academics after he won his battle with the Foreign Language Department youngster year. Never a man to turn down an argument about anything from the Civil War to science problems, Dick, with his great amount of basic knowledge, was always an interesting man to talk to. From the beginning of plebe year on. Dick was noted by his classmates for his dedication to the Naval Service. This coupled with his fine competitive spirit, should make him a valuable asset to Navy Line. WILLIAM BALDWIN EISENHARDT Lutherville, Maryland All who have come in contact with him will attest to " Ike ' s " abilities in life. Whether it be on the athletic field or in the classroom. Bill has excelled in every aspect. Continuing a varied sports career that began at Towson High School, " Ike " helped mold both the plebe and varsity defenses on the lacrosse field. His leadership potential carried over from the field and he has demon- strated this quality both on the Plebe detail and during academic year. Each academic year the classroom chal- lenges were quickly accepted by his scholastic ability. Needless to say, this merited stars for him without much difficulty. Ike ' s athletic, academic, and social attributes have combined to provide a personality which can best 230 SECOND BATTALION SEVENTH COMPANY -•;: ' D:frc WILLIAM BALDWIN EISENHARDT THOMAS HENRY ELLISON at a!) n t: oi kii alter- roltleKP tk% d uil bs ' •liliealnjs IB aijoiieDt « problan-S jutesfoiliis jeiwibis lahuUe 2set (tflvasp - be described as being " unique.

THOMAS HENRY ELLISON Miami. Florida Tom. Spider, or Spade, as you will, came to the Naval Academy from NAPS with a quick and easy sense of humor and a facility in having a good time with anyone at any time. A party, a bull session, or just an ordinary trip to town was not complete without Spider along. If Tom wasn ' t laughing it was only because he was asleep, an avocation he took up early and heartily in his Naval career. But his easy-going and happy-go-lucky nature never stood in the way of his natural ability to lead and to do the job well. Success seems to follow Spider and is a natural consequence of his leadership and comradeship. A superb athlete in high school, Tom excelled in foot- ball, track and boxing plebe and youngster years before the advantages of the less rigorous training of company level sports appealed to him. At home skin diving, hunt- ing from an airboat, playing any sport, dragging, or just having a good time, Tom will fit easily into any branch of the service he chooses. Tom will definitely leave a lasting impression on his fellow officers, as he has on his classmates and friends. Here ' s hoping we see Spider again at Pensacola. PAUL THOMAS FERENCHICK Port Carbon, Penn. Paul came straight from Nativity High School in Potts- ville. Pennsylvania to the adventurous rigors of plebe year. His studies and Brigade activities can be summed up as having been given his maximum effort at all times. ' ■p. T. " has burned the midnisht oil on many occasions PAUL THOMAS FERENCHICK to complete his assignments as he thought they should be done. Accordingly he retains the dubious reputation of being the hardest man in the Brigade to wake up in the morning, and many an alarm clock has met its Water- loo through Paul. Paul ' s loyahy as a friend could never be questioned. Always willing to help a person out in any way possible, a better classmate would be hard to find. A hopeful for Naval Aviation or Line, whichever branch receives him will receive an excellent officer and fine contribution to the service. 231 SECOND BATTALION SEVENTH COMPANY MICHAEL EDWARD FIELD DAVID LEO FRANCIS THOMAS HERBERT GILES MICHAEL EDWARD FIELD Deerfield, Illinois Mike, coming to the Academy from high school in Highland Park, Illinois, readily adjusted to his new routine and compiled an enviable academic record. He maintained a star average for the four years and earned a major in Aeronautical Engineering. In addition to his academic excellence, Mike demonstrated his athletic ability as an outstanding hurdler in intramural track. Mike ' s enthusiasm and drive served as an inspiration for his classmates who often looked to him for academic assistance. Mike arrived at Navy with firm intentions of becoming a Naval Aviator and devoted all his energies to achieve this desire. Coupled with his thoughtfulness and amiable personality, Mike ' s motivation and tenacity will assure him of success throughout his career. DAVID LEO FRANCIS Boston, Mass. After graduation from Cathedral High School, Leo left his home in Boston in search of new challenges on the banks of the Severn. His sense of humor and his ability to laugh at anything proved to be valuable assets and made plebe year easier. His athletic prowess was devoted mostly to the support of his company, particular- ly in football and softball. During his free time he could always be found_ in his bed or on liberty. Convinced that the only real Navy is in the air, he is looking forward to flight school short- ly after graduation. His easy-going manner and genuine friendliness have won him the respect of his classmates and his friends and will undoubtedly continue to do so long after he has left the Naval Academy. FULBRIGHT SCHOLAR France THOMAS HERBERT GILES III Marina, California Arriving from his home state of California, where he completed two years at Cal Poly, Tom quickly adapted to Academy life. Tom has often been kidded about his long hours of study. In spite of this he has constantly raised his average, always working toward his goal of two gold stars. While studious, Tom has the adventurous spirit displayed by most midshipmen. During his first two summers he engaged in both the airborne program, where he won his wings, and the survival school. As of now his career choice is a toss-up. However, whatever his chosen field, his easy-going personality and natural cu- riosity will be a benefit to him and the military service. HAROLD B. HAUPTFUHRER Washington ' s Crossing, Bucks County, Pennsylvania A graduate of the Admiral Farragut Academy and a veteran of two years of Marine Corps service, Barney brought with him the exj erience and organizational abil- ities that always made company functions a success.

In the afternoons, he could be found putting his fierce sense of competition to good use in company touch football and battalion water polo. In addition, he could be found on Wednesday afternoon making the merchants of Mary- land Avenue run for cover when he came soliciting ads as a member of the Log Advertising Staff. Barney ' s dy- namic personality and willingness to work enthusiasti- cally for worthwhile projects has won him many friends and the high esteem of his classmates. With his incli- nation toward hard work and dedication, Barney is guar- anteed success after he leaves USNA. ROY ELTON HITT, JR. Savannah, Georgia A Georgia boy from birth, Roy attended Armstrong CoUege in Savannah for two years before venturing to the academy. At Armstrong he excelled in a liberal arts major, but for the iSavy he switched to math. He has a fine academic record and can always be counted upon where there is a job to be done. He enjoys contact sports and the winters find him playing guard for the company heavyweight football team. Although he has chosen no career as yet, whichever he chooses will receive a fine gentleman and one of the best officers ' 66 has to offer. CHARLES EVERETT KELLEY Wilmington, Delaware Coming straight t o USNA from P. S. DuPont High School in Wilmington, Delaware, Charlie brought with him his love for sports and a good time. Wbile at the Academy, Charlie has demonstrated his excellence in contact sports. Thanks to his natural ability and com- petitive spirit, he made himself a mainstay of both his Battalion football and his Company fieldball teams. Not one to evade the books entirely, however, Charlie will graduate, thanks to much hard work with a major in Military Management. Despite all of his other achieve- ments, however, the ones that he will be remembered most for by his in-company classmates are his unique RONALD LAWRENCE LASSITER qualities and his great sense of humor that were best demonstrated at all in-company class social events. RONALD LAWRENCE LASSITER Omaha, Nebraska Being a Navy Jr., Ron can ' t really tell anyone where his home is, but he has traveled to Japan, Michigan and Nebraska. Ron came to the Naval Academy after at- tending a year at the University of Colorado. His in- terest there in sports carried over to the Academy and he could often be seen any time during the week playing football, basketball, or baseball. Ron is predisposed to- ward a Navy career, his father being a Lieutenant Com- mander. Academics never were Ron ' s strong point but his unyielding determination and desire always seemed to carry him through. His quick wit and fine personality will be definite assets to him in his plans for a career in Naval Aviation. 233 SECOND BATTALION SEVENTH COMPANY PAUL WILLIAM MARTINEAU. JR. JAN DAVID MATTHEWS PAUL WILLIAM MARTINEAU, JR. Fort Ann, New York After one year at the University of Maine, Paul journeyed to USNA to pursue a Naval career. This prior schooling helped him validate several courses which en- abled him to work toward his English and Engineering majors. In the evening he could be found practicing with the " Helicals " for their next show or working with the Ring and Crest Committee. In spite of these extra- curricular activities, Paul ' s name frequented both the Superintendent ' s and Dean ' s lists. Athletics came as easy as academics for him. Thus, he became one of the major figures on the company soccer, lightweight football and squash teams. Though it ' s still a toss up as to which branch of the service will receive the benefit of his abilities, he will go far in his chosen field. JAN DAVID MATTHEWS Painted Post, Neiv York Rock came to the Naval Academy directly from Paint- ed Post High School, ready to meet the rigors of plebe year with a light heart and an unusual sense of humor. Along with his good humor he brought a sense of duty to humanity and anyone willing to ask, or stay and listen could have the Rock ' s advice and cures for almost anything from colds to radios. Although a few accidents hindered his athletic abilities, in company sports he could always be counted on to do a good job when needed. But he proved his real ability by placing high in the in- dividual Brigade Triathlon competition. Sports were not Jan ' s only extracurricular interests here at the Academy, and his interest in firearms led to participation in the Gun Club. Aviation Summer made such an impression on Jan that his future is sure to lead to some phase of Navy Air. But wherever his career finally leads him, Rock is sure to do an outstanding job and his good judgment and common sense will gain him many lasting friends. PAUL ' MARTIN PETRUCKA Mahanoy City, Penn. Troox, as he was known by most of his classmates, comes from the hardy coal regions of Pennsylvania. After high school he spent a year at BuUis Prep before coming 234 to the Academy. He was always a man who could make fun of his troubles and relax even in the tense air of academics. His calming presence was welcomed through- out the company. A great believer in physical activity, Paul led his teammates in Company sports throughout his stay at the Academy. Always an adventurer. Paul will enjoy the spice of life, while at the same time his quiet maturity and detennination will prove him a valuable asset to the service. DANIEL N. SALINAS Donna, Texas Coming directly from high school in Donna, Texas, Dan readily adjusted to his new academic routine at the Academy and broadened his curriculum to include majors in both Russian and Spanish. As a result of his expanded linguistic ability he took particular pleasure in changing languages in the course of conversation with a bewil- dered classmate. He also enjoyed the activities of the Russian and Spanish clubs. Though he spent much of his time with his books, Dan displayed a characteristic Spanish inclination to take an occasional siesta. While not thus occupied, however, he proved himself a fierce competitor on both the soccer field and the squash courts at the intramural level. During his Academy years Dan was revered by his classmates for his sincerity and good faith in all his associations. He greeted even the slightest acquaintance with a ready smile and a friendly word. Dan met each new day with good humor and a desire to succeed in all that he undertook. His drive, tenacity, and enthusiasm will certainly assure the best results for his life in the fleet. PAUL MARTIN PETRUCKA DANIEL N. SALINAS 235 M ACE JOHN SARICH Norfolk, Virginia Ace well deserves his first name. As a Navy junior, he had called many different places home until his fami- ly settled down in Norfolk, Virginia. A calm man and a good friend, Ace always had something funny to add to a conversation. Those who lived close to him were al- ways amazed at his sleeping capacity. It took an average of five minutes of hard shaking to wake him up every morning. In sports he was well above average. During his plebe year, he placed first in the Triathalon. Later on, he ex- celled in cross-country, water polo, and fieldball. In academics he had no favorite subject but did well in all of them. A potential " good conduct award " win- ner. Ace got lost somewhere in the race. He never figured out just where. During second class summer, he enjoyed flying so, he is thinking about going Navy air. Otherwise, we shall see him as a line officer. ROBERT ROYCE SCARBROUGH Prait, Kansas Scarbs came to Canoe U. after a year of junior col- lege in Kansas. Although he was a member of an Army ROTC unit for a year, Scarbs decided that the Navy was for him. An all-conference track star in high school, he brought along a competitive spirit and fine athletic ability to our sports program, both on the company and the varsity levels. Among his many athletic abilities was his unique " cornfield surfing " on the barren plains of Kansas. Besides his many cultural and athletic interests, he cul- tivated the finer arts of wine, women, and song. His sincerity and sense of humor have made him well-liked by his classmates as well as the femmes. Scarbs ' aviation summer was overwhelmingly success- ACE JOHN SARICH ful in helping him choose his calling. His dynamic per- sonality and ability to " get the job done " will be definite assets in whatever field he chooses.

Chile, Jorge found himself well prepared for USNA life after his training at the Chilean iSaval Academy. Neither rain nor sleet nor doom of day vould keep Jorge away from the boat house, and many is the time that we ' ve seen him breaking ice on the mighty Severn River. As a result of his hard work, Jorge became a member of the Plebe crew team which stroked its way to a National Championship in 1963. Following this vic- tory, he went on to hold a prominent position on the varsity team, winning his " N " during Youngster year. Many a study hour has been spent by Jorge in his never ending quest to make his pet radio perfect. One would often find him, screwdriver in hand, trying to find the cause of an inaudible hum, or how he could further O.D. proof his FM antenna. In between crew strokes and radio repairs, Jorge was able to maintain a star average while listening to one of his classical rec- ords. Always ready with a sea story, Chilean style, Jorge has become a favorite among his classmates, who expect him to become the youngest C. 0. of the Chilean Navy. THOMAS RAY WOLSONCROFT Alexander City, Alabama After graduating from Benjamin Russell High School, Tom attended Auburn University for a year. He then left the friendly climate of Alabama and ventured up to the Chesapeake to try a sample of life at the Naval Academy. An immediate success, he quickly won the ad- miration of both classmates and upperclassmen and went on to compile a fine record as a midshipman. On the sports field, Tom ' s ability and sportsmanship proved to be valuable assets to the Seventh Company soccer and football teams. Despite his busy daily routine, Tom still found time to devote to the Class Honor Committee. As a member of the Cannoneers, he was always at the top of the noise on every Navy touchdown. Regardless of his future service choice, the combination of his personality and determined efforts in every endeavor will mark well his future Naval career. 237 SECOND CLASSMEN Back Row.- J. D.

BADGER Tucson, Arizona Dick likes to think of himself as a desert rat, being from the southwestern city of Tucson, Arizona. Before coming to the Naval Academy, he attended the Univer- sity of Arizona for one year where he studied chemical engineering. Here at Navy, he continued in his engineer- ing field, but switched his major field of interest to aeronautics. Overloader " Badge " was a steady mwnber of the Superintendent ' s list from his youngster year on and wore stars for part of that time. Quiet and easy going, Dick was one mid who claimed he enjoyed life at the Academy. As he put it while chuckling over one of his many subtle, weekend raids on USNA regulations, " With the right attitude and with a little imagination, it is easy to find escapes from Academy routine. " After graduation, Dick plans on enjoying his first tour of duty as a carefree bachelor before making any serious deci- sions about his future. PETER ANTHONY BARNETT Sioux Falls, South Dakota Calling Sioux Falls, S. D., his home, Pete is known to his friends as " The Old Man. " This term is easily ac- counted for by the fact that he spent four years in the Navy before coming to the Academy. But Pete ' s nick- name carries with it a very real measure of respect as well. Competence, dependability, and sound judgement are just a few of the attributes of this man which are implied by his nickname. In the realm of sports, Pete earned no little respect for his ability in the handball courts, and he found time to develop a talent for squash in addition. He extended himself into the field of extracurricular activities, being active in the Catholic Choir, musical clubs shows, Ger- man Club, and Neuman Club. Further, he was an im- portant member of the Reception Committee and the 1966 Trident Calendar staff. Flying is in Pete ' s blood. During his prior service time, he was an AT serving on the Hornet. He wants to stay with the field in the future. But whatever his duty assignment, Pete will be a success, for he has the valu- able ability to live and work in harmony with other men. This facility for making friends, combined with his natural competence, will serve him well. ROBERT DONALD BOWENKAMP Darien, Connecticut Bob hails from Darien, Connecticut, but being of good midwestern stock he is forgiven this. A standout in both athletics and academics in high school, he has carried on admirably in both fields. Although his athletic en- deavors have been confined to company sports, he has literally gone to the head of his class academically. The only trouble Bob has with his classes is trying to fit all his overloads into the available elective periods. No problem is too rough for this human computer, no mat- ter what the field. Just plug him in and off he goes. He is a tireless worker and has a burning academic curiosity SECOND BATTALION EIGHTH COMPANY 241 mmmmm RUSSELL CRAIG CARLSON WILLIAM KENNETH CASTLE JR. that will undoubtedly carry him on to several advanced degrees. He did take enough time off from his studies to become one of the finest business managers the Tri- dent Calendar ever had. The only field Bob has taken his knocks in is Female Comprehension, but who hasn ' t? Devotion to duty, limitless energy, and dependabiUty all add in to make him a valuable addition to anyone ' s wardroom. BURKE PROGRAM RUSSELL CRAIG CARLSON Rockford, Illinois William Shakespeare once said, " The past is pro- logue to the future. " If this is so, then Craig has a bright future ahead of him. Though he came to the Academy directly from high school, he has always dem- onstrated a maturity and sense of responsibility beyond his years. This reliability, combined with a warm smile, has made him a popular and respected member of his class. Always interested in improving his mind, Craig carried a large number of electives in literature and social sci- ence. In addition, he spent much of his time researching for the Debate Team, and compiled an excellent record of wins in intercollegiate debate, bringing many trophies home to the Academy. In spite of this rigorous schedule, he also found time for the Chapel Choir, the Reception Committee, German Club, and the Gun Club. Scholas- tically, he maintained his position in the top ten per- cent of his class. Indeed, this is a fine prologue to a bright future. The combination of a keen mind and a persevering will should guarantee the outcome. WILLIAM KENNETH CASTLE JR. Virginia Beach, Virginia Sports and a good education can sum up Bill ' s main interests as a midshipman. Hailing from Virginia Beach, Virginia, where he was an honor graduate and letterman in three sports at Princess Anne High School, Bill did a commendable job while at the Academy. After partici- pating in cross-country, wrestling, and track his plebe year. Bill went back to his favorite sport, football, where as a tackle on the 150 pound team, he earned his " N. " Although having to work for his grades, his academics were never too hard, thus always leaving him a place in his weekend to acquaint his favorite girl with the yard and Annapolis. Coming from a Navy family and environment. Bill has planned a Navy career for quite some time. Whatever his service selection. Bill will be a credit to the Navy and the traditions of the sea. MICHAEL ROBERT CHAPMAN Kalamazoo, Michigan Although the name seems unusual, the small Michigan town of Kalamazoo has made signif icant contributions 242 MICHAEL ROBERT CHAPMAN LARRY MACK COPELAND CHARLES REBERT CRAMER Cnifcaniei ■ ' -:c;i si- V. to the Brigade of Midshipmen. One of these is Mike, a rather quiet character who prefers to do his best work hidden from the eyes of the pubhc. His interests are varied and unusual in their extremes and intensities. He is an avid photographer, spending a lot of time on photography for the 1966 Trident Calen- dar; classical music is his joy, Beethoven his favorite composer. The Sailing Squadron offered him an outlet for his appreciations of nature and adventure; diving was his perfection, putting him on top of the varsity men on the swimming team. The English, History, and Gov- ernment Department captured his aesthetic attentions, the Command department his dedications to the Fleet. These were his majors. Mike has plans for a long career in the Navy, never having found dislike for any of his contacts with the Service. Mike thinks that the Navy can do a lot for him; it seems that Mike can do much for the Navy, with his always new ideas and progressive concepts. LARRY MACK COPELAND Bakers field, California After a year at Bakersfield College, Larry packed his saddlebags and headed east. Shortly after arriving, Larry proved himself an athlete by lettering in plebe football. The following years, when swimming didn ' t have priori- ty, Rugby was his middle name. Academics did not come easy, nor did he try to make them easy, for he was over- loading nearly every semester towards his major in Aero- nautical Engineering in addition to other Brigade activi- ties. A warm, friendly personality has made Larry well liked throughout the Brigade and is certain to carry him through life, a success in any career. CHARLES .REBERT CRAMER San Francisco, Calif. Certainly one of the more gifted and energetic mem- bers of the class, Skip has always managed to find the time to make use of his artistic and literary talents. If he made a poster, designed a Company banner, or just decorated his room for Christmas, you could be sure that his work was well done, original, and frequently, humorous. Because he never had to worry about aca- demics, it seemed that he wjis always ahead — leaving him plenty of time to write letters, get that term paper out of the way, or just " catch a few winks " before hghts-out. In addition to these talents. Skip also possessed a great amount of ambition; whether he was working out or just using up some of his vast amount of leisure time, it was certain that he was working to improve himself. With this drive, there can be no doubt that he will prove to be a fine officer, no matter what branch of the service he chooses. SECOND BATTALION EIGHTH COMPANY 243 SECOND BATTALION EIGHTH COMPANY ARTHUR COHEN DARDEN JR. Harleyville, South Carolina Ace graduated from high school in his hometow-n of Harleyville, South Carolina, and spent one year at the University of South Carolina as a Navy ROTC student before coming to the Naval Academy. A confirmed rebel, he defends his native southland with a slow southern drawl that cannot be mistaken. Although he waged a con- stant war with the Academic Departments, Ace always found time for his favorite pastime activity, sleep. With a little luck, he always managed to outguess the Engineering and Science departments at exam time. Ace actively participated in intramural track and football. ARTHUR COHEN DARDEN JR His interests lay in subjects which require snap judgment and fast action. A friendly smile and " y ' all come to see us " personality made Ace well known throughout the Brigade. Ace plans on going to Navy Line upon gradua- tion and hopes to see a lot of the world before settling do NTl. GEORGE FORREST DAWE, JR. Hamilton, Massachusetts George came to the Academy after an excelletit four years at Saint John ' s Preparatory School in Danvers, Massachusetts. Majoring in Physics and Mathematics, George has been a consistent candidate for the Superin- tendent ' s List, wearing stars since plebe year. " Say, want to hear about Horatio Hornblower? ' ' DOUGLAS N. HARVEY RAYMOND KENT HILL ROBERT SCOTT HOOD On board the Farragut for youngster cruise, George decided that he liked the sea; he demonstrated his en- thusiasm for the Brigade through his contributions to the Drum and Bugle Corps, for which he played soprano bugle. Throughout his training at the Academy, George par- ticipated yearly in company sports, including cross-coun- try, Softball, and football. His fair play and good con- duct have brought admiration from many of his class- mates. Coming from Hamilton, Massachusetts, George carries with him the strong will, determined mind, and firm resolutions that characterize the people from the Boston area and lead them on to become the ranking members of their generation. DOUGLAS N. HARVEY Charlotte, North Carolina Coming fresh out of high school from the Queen City of the South, Doug found plebe year a new chal- lenge which he overcame after a little difficulty. Known as " Harv " to his friends, he gained several nicknames known to many. As an enthusiastic athlete, he played soccer, fieldball, softball, and ran cross-country for his company. Not an academic " slash, " he spent his time studying during the week. Always ready for a Saturday night bridge game, he welcomed the weekends as a time not to study. Not one to let the system upset him, he could always be counted upon to lighten the situation with his great sense of humor. Harv is looking forward to the day he receives his Navy wings. RAYMOND KENT HILL San Francisco, Calijornia Ray came to the Naval Academy with a desire to do well, and he has done just that. He lettered in varsity football and varsity lacrosse, was on and off the Super- intendent ' s List, and majored in Aeronautical Engineer- ing. He was a member of several organizations includ- ing the Brigade Hop Committee, the Gun Club, the Re- ception Committee, and the Spanish Club. He is best known for his personality and his ability to get along with everyone except the Executive Department. His warm, friendly personality and the constant smile on his face make him an enjoyable person. How he picked up a southern drawl when all the time he was a Navy junior is unknown, but the girls just love it. He will cer- tainly be one of the best officers flying for the Navy. ROBERT SCOTT HOOD Havertown, Pennsylvania Fresh from . Haverford, Pennsylvania, High School, Scott arrived at the Academy ready for anything that the military life would throw his way. Probably, he was most famous for having spent his entire youngster cruise vacationing in a New Jersey suinmer resort town. An out- standing member of the varsity soccer team, he also lent his considerable athletic ability to the Company bas- ketball and football teams. His energies were also chan- neled into membership on many extracurricular com- mittees which succeeded in keeping academics in their " rightful place " between 9:30 and 11:00 on certain week- day nights. His quiet determination and optimism never failed him in his endeavors, and he is one of those men who can get the job done, no matter what the circumstances. He cannot fail to make an outstanding asset to the officer ranks of the U. S. Navy. 245 1 SECOND BATTALION EIGHTH COMPANY BUFORD FREDRICK HOWELL RALPH MELVIN MITCHELL JR. MILTON DOUGLAS MORRIS MILTON DOUGLAS MORRIS New Hartford, New York From September to April, everything was swimming — academics were nearly forgotten. Doug had a professed dislike for mathematics and science courses, and general- ly substituted extensive extracurricular reading for these in order not to ignore the benefits of a liberal education. Fond of religious arguments, he was often called " the Deacon " by his friends. Doug was forever trying to help friends " beat the system. " His favorite saying was, " You won ' t know if you can get away with it unless you try. " Fond of girls, art, music, and all sports, Doug earned a varsity letter in swimming all three years and was a member of the AU-American medley relqy his youngster year. Doug is planning on entering Naval Aviation upon graduation. BUFORD FREDRICK HOWELL Monroe, Louisiana From the swamplands of Louisiana via Louisiana Tech came Fred eager to show the Navy a new way of doing things. Fred was constantly waging a war against the Executive Department, and weekends often times found him on the losing end — restricting. A desire for excel- lence typifies Fred ' s attitude toward everything he at- tempted — from books to athletics to editorship of the Trident calendar. In the afternoons he was found as a mainstay on the company sports teams or fighting that ever present midshipman nemesis — his bed. Academics came easy for Fred, and he was always an aid during study hour — rthat is when study hour was observed. He will certainly be a credit to the Navy, whether it be air, subs, line, or supply. A fine man. RALPH MELVIN MITCHELL JR. Washington, New Jersey " Mitch " set out from a rural town in New Jersey, Washington by name, and headed for the United States Naval Academy. There was no problem of adjustment to the big city of Annapolis; and Academy routine was, in turn, taken in stride. Time was always found for drag- ging, sufficient sleep, and the other " finer points of life. " A three-sport man in high school, this talented athlete now concentrated on basketball, which soon be- came the center of his activity. His hustle on the court and obvious desire to do his best at all times is exempla- ry of his approach to any obstacle encountered. Whether it be academics or merely his personal appearance, there- was always sincere concern and conscientious effort for improvement. This quiet dedication and seriousness of purpose gained him respect by all. " Mitch " will be a credit to the Navy and his country both as an officer and a gentleman. DONALD PATRICK ROWE Scarborough, Maine Don came to Annapolis from Scarborough, Maine, in " The Land of the Lobster, " directly from high school. He brought with him a personality that was reflected in his ever-present smile and his easy nature. After a brief skirmish with the Math Department plebe year, Don endeavored to study harder. He settled on a History major while at the Academy and hopes to continue in 246 i DONALD PATRICK ROWE JOHN DENNIS SAVAGE JAMES OKEY SHANNON this field if the Navy allows him the time. In sports, Don was out for Company cross-country every fall and lent his stocky build to the parades around the Hospital Point course. Fieldball in the winter and Battalion track in the spring were his other sports through every year. He was- always counted on to give his best effort to these sports each season. Judging from his ease of adapting to situations, his spirited personality, and his friendly nature, Don will be an asset to the Naval field he chooses upon gradua- tion. JOHN DENNIS SAVAGE McAllen, Texas Coming to USNA by way of McAllen, Texas, and NAPS, John was not one to let the rigors of plebe year bother him. Although one of the most easy going per- sons in our class, he was, nevertheless, respected as one of its finer leaders. Four years of academics left him standing in the top half of the class. A true believer in sleep teaching, he could usually be found in bed. On the athletic field, a desire to win coupled with a burst of speed made John one of the better athletes in the com- pany. A person with a sense of humor, he devoted a great deal of his time to the Reception Committee. Upon gradu- ation John hopes to be headed to Supply Corps school. In whatever career he chooses we are sure he will give a fine account of himself. ROBERT T. SIMMONS forts always seem to pay great dividends in the long run. Since leadership is entirely a quality of example, Oke can be certain to expect and obtain high standards from those he will lead. JAMES OKEY SHANNON Beljry, Kentucky Born and raised in the beautiful mountains around Belfry, Kentucky, Oke made liis mark in high school as his class vice-president. He obtained varsity letters in football, basketball, and track. Upon entering the Acad- emy, he was captured right away by Navy Crew and he rowed with the Plebes to the 1963 I.R.A. National Championships. In addition to varsity crew, Oke ' s sched- ule is double-overloaded for a major in Political Science. After graduation, Oke plans to get his N.A.O. wings at Pensacola and later to pursue a masters degree in In- ternational Relations at Post-Graduate School. Oke sets rather high goals for himself but his persistence and ef- ROBERT T. SIMMONS Long Beach, California Hailing from the sunny state of California, Bob ar- rived at USNA ready for the challenges of plebe year. Academics came easy t o Bob and this helped ease the tensions of his first year. Continuing into his upperclass years, he branched off into two majors with great hopes for a career in the Silent Service. Four years in the Drum and Bugle Corps gave him further opportunities for his musical talents. Enjoying all sports, he was an active member of the Battalion and Company teams. Well liked by his classmates he could always be counted on whenever a willing hand was needed. Bob will cer- tainly prove to be an asset to the Navy upon graduation. 247 »JP ■ ' SECOND BATTALION EIGHTH COMPANY ROBERT JOHN STANKOWSKl JR. THOMAS " D " STOUFFER ROBERT JOHN STANKOWSKl JR. Springfield, Virginia Hailing from Scranton, Pennsylvania, Stan spent much of his early life traveling the world over. Being from a Navy family, he spent two years in Spain. This may be one reason why he majored in Spanish while at the Acad- emy. Stan, who came directly from high school in Nor- folk, was not only noted for his political prejudices but also for his avid interest in classical music. Hardly a day went by when he was not seen conducting Brahms, Handel or Beethoven, or admiring his extensive tape collection. Having a propensity for art and drawing, Stan worked on tlie Guide-On and Trident Calendar staffs as well as being a " volunteer " for many Company and Battalion projects. During plebe year, the poster contest was monopolized by him and his roommates, and the prize money from the Army poster must have been wonderful. Stan was a member of the Spanish club and has many interesting stories about the club ' s trips. His main interest is Navy Line and then sometime in the future a civilian job in government. We know that with his vibrant personality and drive he will be a success in any work he tries. THOMAS " D " STOUFFER Elizabelhtown, Pennsylvania Tom, an assertive and well-spoken midshipman, marked himself as an outstanding contributor almost immediate- ly in his Navy career. Coming from ElizabethtowTi, a small city in central Pemisylvania, he has shown with his confident approach and leadership a knack for ac- complishing his goals. The varsity debate team. Foreign Relations, and German Clubs all have benefited from his outstanding scholastic abilities and his deftness at expressing himself. The rut of scholastic competence and tmi " Are you trying to kid me, Sir? " MvlES MICHAEL SWARTWOOD physical ineptness is certainly not a fault of Tom. His gymnastic abilities speak well of his physical as well as mental coordination. However, his significant contri- butions to the Naval Academy Debate Team have hin- dered his interests in organized sports. Tom hopes, follow- ing graduation, to combine his two ' goals of graduate study and travel abroad. FILBRIGHT SCHOLAR JAMES MICHAEL SWARTWOOD Bellingham, Washington i you were to ask Jim where. he is from, he will probably say, " The West Coast, " in the best tradition of the wandering Navy Junior. By coincidence, his brother also chose a military Ufe by attending one of the otter academies in Colorado Springs (parental influence, per- haps?). Having a bent for the mechanical, particularly elec- tricity, Jim ' s interest turned to radio, and even now he sometimes signs K7QIT, his old " ham " call letters. In fact, electronics has had a very great effect on his life. He has been credited with a great mental capacitance, was inducted into the service, despite some resistance, his cries proving little impedance to the inevitable. Jim is one of the night people. It is seldom that one can see what he truly feels or thinks; he is an introvert, an iceberg whose greater part lies hidden. His ideas range over broad fields, from math to philosophy; weapons to psychology. Where will twenty years from now find Jim? Prob- ably still with the Fleet. Where will he be? It is uncer- tain; wherever, he will be high; whatever the situation, he vill be on top of it. BENJAMIN TAPPAN III Gibson Island, Maryland Born in Niagara Falls, New York. Ben is the son of an old Naval Aviator and has seen many places of in- terest in this wide world. Ben came to the Academy straight from Rogers High School in Newport, Rhode Island, where he won letters in track and cross-country. Although on the National Honor Society, as well as the Rhode Island Honor Society, " Academics " proved to be Ben ' s big obstacle at the Academy, where he always seemed to be far from the top of his class and not too far from the bottom. Despite this one little handicap, however, Ben was always able to nourish his love for SCUBA Diving through the USNA SCUBA Club. No matter how cold the vater, or where the dive, Ben was always there. We feel this is the way he ' ll be as a Naval officer ... a man with an undying devotion to the service both he and his father love. BRUCE DANA W ' MAN West Springfield, Massachusetts Bruce, who comes from West Springfield, Massachu- setts, had wanted to attend the Academy for some time before he made it, coming directly out of high school. Desiring to continue his long association with musical groups, Bruce became an active member of the Drum and Bugle Corps. He found that working with the D B provided a needed break in the daily routine and was well worth the many hours spent with the Corps. Also a member of the German Club, he overloaded in German to obtain a Language major. Bruce ' s athletic efforts were directed mainly toward the Company level where he played on soccer, fieldball, and squash teams, leaving them only to participate in Battalion track during his plebe year. While on Youngster cruise, Bruce ' s interest in Navy line was heightened and formed the foundation for his desire to enter the Mine Force. Bad eyes, however, may force him to enter a staff corps. But no matter what his specialty, Bruce will be sure to succeed. 249 SECOND CLASSMEN Bdck Row; D. E. Faber, R. A. Pratt, R. E. Ruys, Beavers, J. R. Wood, Jr., D. A. Kreps, M. R. Svend sen.

In high school there, he played on state-champion football and baseball teams while participating in basketball as well. Before coming to the Academy, he spent a year at Nevada Southern Uni- versity where he set a precedent by becoming the first freshman to play on the varsity baseball team. At Navy, however, crew received his attention. Denny rowed with the Plebes to the 1963 LR.A. National Cham- pionships. During that summer, he also volunteered for the Navy ' s Escape and Evasion School in San Diego. His exceptional ability in sports was complemented by an above-average academic record. Under the option program, he continued an overloaded schedule for a ma- jor in Aeronautical Engineering which he planned to turn into a master ' s degree at post-graduate school and a pair of gold wings from Pensacola. Even now he is rec- ognized as an authority on airplanes. Navy air, and model-building. All this is combined into a robust and affable per- sonality that continues to keep his social life demanding and his friendships lasting. Denny always seems to suc- ceed on the second time, at least; and since he has never been known to give up, he can look forward to a well earned, successful career. ROGER BRUCE BICKEL Fairmont, West Virginia Bruce was an outstanding athlete at Randolph Macon Military Academy and Columbian Prep, and continued to develop his athletic prowess and leadership capabilities during his four years at the Academy. His salient char- acteristic was his devout and dedicated attitude, both to himself and his friends. He was an active participant in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Officer ' s Christian Union, and Naval Academy Christian Association. Bruce proved that high morals are a necessity of naval leader- ship and because of his unselfishness, conscientiousness and self-discipline, the Navy is insured of a fine officer. ROBERT JOHN BRANCO Modesto, California Greetings like " Surf ' s up, " " Did the Giants win, " or " Como vai " would always be received from this Cali- fornian who never ceased praising the merits of his home state. Sports always were a big part of Bob ' s life and whether it was behind the plate for the varsity on Law- rence Field in the spring or in the fall, or in the hand- ball court in the winter, he was always driven by a vigo- rous competitive spirit. Books never posed a serious problem to him, though he had to use his proficiency in the liberal arts as a means of gaining more study time for the engineering half of the curriculum. Besides sports. Bob spent four years in the first tenor section of the Catholic Choir. One would often see " Portugues " heading to the ban- quet rooms with bow tie and speech prepared for after dinner speaking in his favorite language. He is a seri- ous candidate for Naval Aviation after graduation, and his determination and desire should help him attain suc- cess in the future.

GINGRICH DAVID CONKLIN DENNEY Fairbmy, Nebraska Dave came to Navy directly from Exeter Academy in New Hampshire and has always had many diversified in- terests. Often he could be found at the Academy na- tatorium working on dives for the varsity swimming team. Studies were never any problem for Dave who. because of his ability in Math, took a major in that field. Being a magician. Dave performed for many com- pany parties, language clubs and other groups in the yard. His quick wit will he!]) him go far in his desired field of Naval Aviation. MORRIS COOPER FOOTE Washington, District oj Columbia Upon graduation from St. Albans School in Washing- ton, D.C., " Moose " stepped from the " Long Grey Line " to enter USNA. Being the son and grandson of West Point graduates, he could not say that he did not know what his " college " days would be like. Nevertheless, he was eager to enter fully into Academy life and devoted much of his free time to intramural athletics. " Moose " was a stalwart on both Battalion and Company football and basketball squads as well as a valuable member of the 1962 Brigade Championship volleyball team. " Moose " entered the majors program choosing French as his field, and while his dassmates slaved away on two years of Thermodynamics and Electrical Engineering, he wrote letters to various femmes in the language of love. Nonetheless, " Moose " excelled in academics and was frequently found on the Superintendent ' s List. During Second Class summer, he surrendered a care- free tour at Pensacola for a hard-working eight weeks on the Plebe Detail, hut benefitted greatly from his ex- perience of working with new troops. " Moose ' s " quiet determination and lofty ideals typi- fied his standard of performance. The service will acquire a ' sincere and competent officer in " Moose " Foote. TOM J. GINGRICH West Milton, Ohio After excelling at Milton Union High School. Tom brought his warm and friendly personality East from West Milton, Ohio. Tom continued to show his fine athletic abilities as he excelled in plebe football and in all his other sports endeavours. Wlien not found in the swimming pool or pursuing his other favorite pastimes, Tom could usually be found riding the elevator up to his room in the clouds, which also helped to earn him the reputation of a fine competitor in the executive de- partment. Tom didn ' t limit his ambitions to sports, but also found time to pursue a major in Aeronautical Engi- neering and be a Superintendent ' s list student except for conduct. Tom plans to spend his time in the Navy flying, and, because of his sincerity, easy going manner, and capabilities, his future will surely be rewarding. LEROY ALVERT GOODING Providence, R. I. Boni and reared in Trinidad, West Indies, Lee ac- quired a taste for salty seas and blue skies. Perhaps this taste prompted his entering the Naval Academy where he majored in French and participated in boxing. Al- ways ready to " parlez un peu " or go a few rounds, Lee ' s only nemesis appeared to be the Nicoles and Bridgettes or a double right hook. Loved by the good, feared by the bad, the " Reverend Mr. Wood " intends to finally win his " N " in the Brigades and enter into avia- tion upon graduation. 254 4 SECOND BATTALION ' NINTH COMPANY LEROY ALVERT GOODING DONALD NELSON GRACE DONALD NELSON GRACE Bethel Park, Pennsylvania Coming from Bethel Park High School near Pitts- burgh, Pennsylvania, Don was well qualified, both aca- demically and physically. He was on the plebe swim- ming team and proved himself a worthy opponent on the company light weight football and softball teams. Among his other endeavors, Don worked as a sports writer on the Splinter Staff, and was a member of the NA-10. Also doing well in academics, Don made the Superin- tendent ' s List and wore stars with quiet regularity. In- terested in Nuclear Science, Don has acquired Math and Nuclear Science majors and plans to go to Nuclear Pow- er School after graduation. JAMES WALTER GROULX San Diego, California The " Gru " came to USNA from the sun and surf of sunny California. After a big party year at the Uni- versity of California at Berkeley and Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity he decided to try Navy. He soon became one of the better liked midshipmen due to his good sense of humor. When not plotting a practical joke " the Gru " could usually be seen on the 150 lb. football practice field. Grades, however, were the most important part of his academy life and he was always relieved when the much coveted 2.00 was achieved. He could always be recognized by his big smile and slow walk. The Gru currently holds the USNA record for the longest time on the Melville Mile. Jim plans a career in the Corps and it is certain that, with his hard nosed determination to excel, he can only be a credit to his chosen service. MYRON HURA Irvington, New Jersey Myron Hura came to the Academy from Irvington JAMES WALTER GROULX High School, New Jersey where he excelled in academics and athletics. Throughout his four years his main academic interests at the Academy were in the humanities. Athletics also played a major part in his life at the Academy as evidenced by his election to the All American soccer team. His professional interests lie in surface line. His achievements at the Academy both in academics and in athletics seem to indicate that he will have both a reward- ing and successful career in life. FULBRIGHT SCHOLAR Chile 255 SECOND BATTALION NINTH COMPANY MYRON HURA DAVID WAYNE JOSEPHSON STEPHEN FREDERICK KALOSIS DAVID WAYNE JOSEPHSON Long Beach, Washington After 18 years in an Army family, Dave saw the light in high school and departed for USNA to see how the other half lived. He soon found out that he had made the right choice, and he entered plebe year with a cheer- fulness and sense of humor that was not to be dampened by any of the consequences of his fourth class status. Although academics sometimes proved to be a menace, his determination kept him out of any serious danger, and he found time to participate actively in Company sports and various extracurricular activities. Throughout his midshipman days, Dave found it easy to make friends and due to his friendly smile and wit, many of these turned out to be of the feminine variety. A real lover of music, he could usually be found listening to some new record if not studying or in bed. His avid interest in languages and foreign cultures will prove valuable to him in future travels. Dave is a hard-working and dedicated fellow, and he can be counted upon to do a fine job in the Fleet. STEPHEN FREDERICK KALOSIS Detroit, Michigan The " Loch " came to the Academy from Catholic Cen- tral High School in Detroit, Michigan. Plebe year proved to be quite an experience for him. It took quite a while to get used to studying on Friday nights and being with- out a car. He was a member of the plebe 150 crew team and participated in Company fieldball and squash. From youngster year on; he concentrated on his studies, en- rolling in elective courses, and making the Superintend- ■ ent ' s List. His future plans include Naval Aviation and graduate work in engineering. JAMES MICHAEL LOPACINSKI Milwaukee, Wisconsin After climaxing a brilliant career in High School and at Columbian Prep, Jim came to Navy with the deter- mination to pick up where he had left off. Injuries early in his plebe year ended his varsity career, but not his desire. He soon became the stalwart in many Company sports. Always in good humor. The Lope ' s beaming wit often cheered many a depressed classmate or friend. Basically a person who did not want to be repaid for his kind- nesses, Jim soon became a well-respected and likeable friend because of his innate qualities. His consideration for others often led to added burdens upon himself, but Jim ' s perseverance overcame any discouraging obstacles. This latter trait, along with his desire to make the best of himself, will definitely contribute to his success in the service of his choice. CHARLES ANDREW McGIBBON Oregon, Wisconsin After leaving his home on the farm in Oregon Wis- consin, Chuck soon adapted to life at the Naval Academy. Since his entrance to the Academy, Chuck was a credit 256 JAMES MICHAEL LOPACINSKI CHARLES ANDREW McGIBBON EDWARD LAWRENCE McMENAMY to the Brigade, both academically and athletically. He was always in the top 5 percent of his class and lettered in varsity 150 pounds football in addition to participating vigorously in intramural sports. He attained a major in Mathematics and was often called upon for help due to his excellence in this field. He was known widely for his friendly personality and willingness to aid. others. Chuck met his biggest challenge in the swimming pool. He was a standout at underwater swimming but staying on the surface presented problems. Chuck is undecided as to what branch of the Navy he will enter, but whatever he chooses, he will undoubtedly excel at it. EDWARD LAWRENCE McMENAMY Summit, New Jersey Ed came to the Academy from Summit, New Jersey with a competitive drive that was to later manifest itself in an outstanding academic record. His plebe year determination, which gained him a slot on the plebe soccer team, carried over into upperclass years where he channelled his energy into a rigid study program. As a result. Mac was a regular on the Superin- tendent ' s List. After a youngster year of p-work=, and overloads, Ed let his hair down only to have it shaved off at Fort Benning where he earned his Airborne wings. Second class year found him in the alternate program with a tough decision to make between a math or history major. Throughout his four years, Mac was a fierce com- petitor on the athletic field, participating in Company soccer, softball and lightweight football. For relaxation he enjoyed the Italian Club events, though he had had some blank moments on Plebe Lan- guage Finals. Always tops in aptitude, Ed will surely prove to be a diligent and respected officer. JOHN WILLIAM NICHOLS III Saratoga Springs, Neiv York JOHN WILLIAM NICHOLS Nick came to the Naval Academy from Saratoga Springs, New York where he was on his high school foot- ball, wrestling and track teams. Here at academy he settled down to wrestling and his performance on the mats won John his " N " and gave him a chance to com- pete in the Easterns. When not wrestling John is usually found with his books. Although never number one in his class, he always managed to keep a good academic average. John ' s initiative doesn ' t end at the Academy. During his summer leave he helped prepared for his future by work- ing on different construction jobs. John is well known for his persistent attitude and after graduation John ' s love of action will probably lead him to Pensacola to earn his " wings of gold. " He undoubtedly will do a fine job at whatever he tries and will be a valuable asset to the 257 JOSEPH FRANCIS PHELAN JOSEPH FRANCIS PHELAN Twy, New York Upon graduating from La Salle Military Institute in his home town of Troy, New York, Joe spent a studio us year at Manhattan College, where he majored in science. The " Whale " , as he was affectionately known because of his large stature and love of the sea, was well pre- pared for plebe year at the Academy, and always man- aged to keep a step ahead of the upperclass. Throughout his four years, he was consistent in beating the academics, and was a recognized leader in the class and on the athletic field. He was an invaluable asset on Brigade championship basketball and volleyball teams, as well as a tough contender on Battalion football and handball teams. His wry sense of humor and rugged good looks provided him with many interesting encounters with the weaker sex, while his casual but confident manner earned him the respect of his fellow classmates. Behind Joe ' s blond hair and fair complexion lies a sense of values that is sure to make him a capable and productive officer. Sometimes it seemed that way. I 258 4 JOHN MARK SUHY JOHN MARK SUHY WILLIAM FREDERICK THOMPSON WILLIAM HALL WENDEL, JR. Warren, Michigan John, who hails from Warren, Michigan, journeyed to the Severn Shores after spending a year at Assumption University of Windsor in Ontario, Canada. With a great admiration for " the tradition of the sea, " John Mark was able to adapt and to function well in this new en- vironment. With his great sense of humor and ability to get along with people. John never had any trouble find- ing good times or good friends. Finding good academics fairly easy to maintain, he also managed to compete ac- tively and skillfully in Company sports — being best known for his adeptness on the 150 football field. Besides these skills, John has displayed considerable interest and ability in the field of literature and music and has enriched his academic load with several elective courses. With these interests and accomplishments, plus his constant striving to do well in all he undertakes, there can be no doubt that he will be a credit to any ship ' s wardroom. WILLIAM FREDERICK THOMPSON Hightsloivn, New Jersey Coming to the Academy after seven years at the Peddie Prep School in his hometown of Hightstown, New Jersey and a year in the Naval Reserves, Buck was more ac- customed to the regulations which ruled us all, and naturally, for successful at breaking them. He spent most of his time away from the Academy at his summer home in Vermont where he was able to pursue the two things he loved most, skiing and hockey. While at the Academy he could be found either on the soccer field where he earned the prized " N " three times in helping to make Navy one of the top teams in the nation or on the front line of his Company lightweight football team. Buck combined the ability of a fine athlete with a strong per- sonaHty to become a true friend to us all. He said what he wanted to say and did what he wanted to do. His ma- turity and quiet determination will make a successful ca- reer wherever he travels. WILLIAM HALL WENDEL, JR. Leiviston, New York Following in the footsteps of his father. Hall entered the Naval Academy after attending high school in Lewis- ton, New York, and spending a year at Bullis Prep School. Hall found many interests in intramural sports, concentrat- ing in football, basketball, and baseball. He was also a member of the Naval Academy Choir for four years. Hall ' s desire, ambition, and determination made him an avid competitor on the athletic field as well as in the classroom. Hall, who always found academics a challenge, through determination and hard work achieved a major in Social Science. His hearty laugh and effervescent per- sonality earned him many good friends and greatly con- tributed to the spirit of the company and the Brigade. His resolution and easy going spirit coupled with strong determination and a healthy outlook on life will insure his success in whatever he pursues. SECOND BATTALION NINTH COMPANY 259 SECOND BATTALION NINTH COMPANY JOSEPH LAMBERT WIGGINS GREGORY BRUCE WILLIAMS JOSEPH LAMBERT WIGGINS Phoenix, Arizona Phoenix, Arizona will always regret the loss of Joe Wiggins. Before leaving the sun, social life and his track medals behind, Joe left his mark as president of the Key Club and as a standout on his school ' s cross country and track teams. After a brief encounter with crew he turned out for track and established his reputation by promptly breaking the plebe record in the low hurdles. The Varsity track team has been grateful for his efforts for three years. As an individual Joe ' s reputation is equally outstand- ing. He plays the guitar and his melodic voice has thrilled our souls to the depths as it rang through the halls of Mother Bancroft, or wherever people gathered. As a member of St. Paul ' s choir Joe used his talent on a little quieter scale. His interest in all things musical is evidenced by his 2 years as a member of the Popular Music Com- mittee. Joe ' s interests particularly suit him to the type of career he seeks. Being an Air Force junior, living in the Philip- pines, spending his leaves in Europe and studying French, all combine with his fine personality, social poise and ability to influence enemies, to make him a natural for diplomatic duties. After studying under the option program and taking double overloads towards a major in Political Science, Joe hopes for foreign duty with a Fleet staff, and the oppor- tunity to deal with other people. GREGORY BRUCE WILLIAMS Collins, Mississippi At the end of his first year of college, Greg decided to trade the Blue and Gold of Notre Dame for the Blue and Gold of Navy. His decision proved to be sound, for his record at the Academy has been outstanding in all aspects. By the end of youngster year, his name was familiar not only to classmates, but to the entire Brigade, for he became the first man in our class to win the coveted " N Blanket " for lettering in three varsity sports. Truly one of Navy ' s greatest distance runners, Greg con- tributed heavily to the success of our cross country and track teams. Because of his preoccupation with run- ning he found it necessary to make maximum use of study time, and as a result his name frequently appeared on the Superintendent ' s List. With his quiet manner and friendly grin, Greg managed to win a few feminine hearts, but the fair sex always played second to academics and ath- letics. His eagerness and perseverance for any task assure the Navy of receiving a fine officer. 260 ri:;v, " JAMES VANCE WILLIFORD Montgomery, Alabama Willie made the journey from Naples to Annapolis after spending the first 18 years of his life as an Air Force junior. He soon became accustomed to Navy life, however, and, his record both in athletics and academics illustrated just how well he made this adjustment. Never letting the Academic Department get ahead of him, Willie reached his academic peak on the night be- fore a P-Work. He always managed to come out on top when grades were posted. Willie was a standout in P.T., leading his class during his four years at USNA. He took refuge from academics in the lower ring of MacDonough Hall, where he made his size work for him in both the Battalion and the Brigade Boxing programs. Airborne training at Fort Benning and Survival school in Maine occupied two summers of this active midship- man ' s leave. Such enthusiasm is an example of the at- titude displayed by Willie toward his responsibilities at the Academy. This same enthusiasm will undoubtedly carry over to Willie ' s officer career, where he will be an asset to the class and the service. PAUL JOSEPH ZANDO Jacksonville, Florida Paul came to the Academy from Bishop Kenny High School in Jacksonville, Florida, bringing along his friendly personality and a strong drive to accomplish his ambitions. Although he chose Canoe U. over Notre Dame, football season found him with two favorite teams, and he was often initiating a cheer for old Notre Dame. During his four years here, he has been an active participant in company sports, playing soccer, football, and softball. He has taken full advantage of our electives program, with his major interests in politics and foreign affairs. Though his dream is to be someday stationed in Italy, he enjoys traveling and hopes to " see the world " during his Naval career. JAMES VANCE WILLIFORD PAUL JOSEPH ZANDO 26!

He is constantly en- gaging in escapades vhich would send chills down the spine of bigger men. Sailing Squadron members know him because of his trip to the top of Royono ' s mast during a squall on the way to Bermuda in 1964. Others know him for his ride up Vigilant " s mast on the end of a spinnaker halyard. But not to be tied down to only one form of adventure. Beach puts all of his 110 pounds on the fieldball field during the winter season. Although he doesn t scare the other team away, he scares his own team by usually ending up on the bottom of every pile up. Besides being a man of action, he ' s a man of world affairs. International Relations has been his most in- teresting course. To further this interest, he has been active in the Foreign Relations Club. Who knows, maybe he ' ll be the American answer to James Bond. But one thing is certain, there ' s no sense in predicting this char- acter ' s future, for he ' ll make his own. BEEBY DAVID WILLIAM BOYLE DAVID WILLIAM BOYLE Canamlaigua, New York A native of Canandaigua, New York, Dave received a four-year college scholarship, but elected instead to join the Naval Reserve in hopes of entering the Acade- my. After a year of senice he achieved his goal and began the first of four very active years here. Dave played the tenor drum in the Drum and Bugle Corps and was of particular assistance in the preparation and execution of many football half-time shows. He rounds out his musical interest by also playing the guitar and banjo in his spare time. Another favorite pastime for Dave is sports cars. Spanish Club. Scuba Club, and coin collecting round out his many hobbies. An avid participant in many sports at the Academy, Dave spent his spring and fall seasons on the Varsity Sailing Team and enjoys running cross-country. Leisure time sports range from squash and fishing, to skiing and archery hunting with his father. Second class summer was a high spot in Dave ' s four years here, when he was able to augment his considerable interest in Naval Avia- tion. GERED HOWARD BEEBY Kodiak, Alaska After graduating first in his high school class of over four hundred, Jerry, a Navy junior, decided that USNA would be his home for the next four years. During the first year, he lent his talents to the plebe gym team, and as an upperclassman he proved to be a valuable asset to the company football and battalion gym teams. His knack with academics of a scientific nature made him a fre- quent member of the Superintendent ' s List and one who could always be counted on for the clue to solving that tough problem on the homework. When away from Academy life, Jerry ' s first interests are hunting and fishing in the great outdoors. For this reason, the several years he spent in both Hawaii and Alaska were particu- larly enjoyable. Jerry ' s quiet manner and sincere, forth- right personality have earned him many friends during his four years at the Naval Academy. His perseverance and determination will assure him of every success in the future. SECOND BATTALION TENTH COMPANY ?65 ARNOLD EDWARD CATRON MICHAEL LEONARD CERUZZI PAUL STEPHEN BUEGE Manitowoc, Wisconsin Paul left Wisconsin and the Green Bay Packers behind to come to the shores of the Severn and study at USNA. However, he still remained very loyal to his state and the " Packers " . With one year of college previous to entering the Academy, Paul began his academics in the top of his class and remained there through the years. Paul ' s time was about evenly divided between student and tutor. He never encountered academic difficulty and had time to help those who found some trouble in the courses. Paul ' s friendly attitude won him many friends and his trademark was a smile. He played on more than one Brigade championship team and was very active in sports. Paul ' s knowledge of current events was far above that of the average individual, and his knowledge of sports was in the range of that of the experts. His fine personality, ability and drive are only surpassed by his loyalty as a friend, and these assets will make Paul a success in the future. ARNOLD EDWARD CATRON Kansas City, Kansas A lifetime resident of Kansas City, Kansas, Am began his education at the University of Kansas, armed with a National Merit Scholarship and plans for going into industrial mathematics. After two successful years at the University, he enlisted and began the first leg of a re- warding Naval career. After boot camp, he was about to enter the nuclear sub program when he received notice of his acceptance at NAPS. He subsequently received the number one appointment from prep school and arrived here as one of the oldest members in the new class of ' 66. Since that first year Arn has been taking an increas- ingly large number of optional courses, leading to ma- jors in Mechanical Engineering, Nuclear Science and Engineering Science. Early plebe year Arn began the first of many worth- while seasons at his " professional sport " , the YP Squad- ron. He has served on the Lucky Bag staff and spent several chilly winter afternoons brushing up on his swimming. A hard worker Arn has always been willing to shoulder more than his share of the load and is never too busy to help a classmate. While Arn could certainly plan on a successful career in any branch of the Navy, he favors the nuclear submarine program. MICHAEL LEONARD CERUZZI Easton, Conn. Mike came to the Academy as a Connecticut Yankee directly out of high school. Although he is noted for his quietness and shy outward appearance, Mike, on closer inspection is friendly and always willing to help others. His main sports interests are in swimming and pistol although he seems more interested in drowning his opponents than scoring in water polo. Academically Mike has found the secret to good grades, lots of study both on week days and weekends. His main interests outside of the Academy include hiking — he did his fifty mile hike in thirteen hours — and classical music. THOMAS ALLEN COONEY Lumbcrton, New Jersey Tom, or " Coons " as he was generally known, came to Navy U. from Lumberton, New Jersey. Having been a wrestler for four years in high school, he was a mem- ber of both the plebe and Varsity squads despite his frequent clashes with the scales. Plebe year kept him out of his bed. but he made up for lost time as an upper- classman, while pursuing a Nuclear Science major and 266 TENTH COMPANY THOMAS ALLEN COONEY MICHAEL PATRICK DONNELLY .1 I maintaining a " stars " average. Aside from his bed, politics, girls, and XK-E Jaguars were his main interests. Know as a perennial " Liberty Hound " , weekends would find Tom dating in Annapolis or taking a weekend at home with a carload of his classmates. One of the most well liked members of his class, Tom will have no trouble getting along as a Naval officer. With his intel- ligence and grades, Tom seems to be a likely candidate for Nuclear Power School, but whatever he tries, he will undoubtedlv excel. MICHAEL PATRICK DONNELLY Denver, Colorado Mike came to the Academy out of the wilds of Colora- do. Since his father was in the Army, he spent his earlier years in such exotic places as London, Tokyo and Texas. In his high school days he began to realize success with his first love — baseball. He was able to continue with it at Navy, and with Mike on the mound most of the base running was left to Navy players. In the Chapel Choir, Mike found another outlet that did a great deal toward making his stay at the Academy more pleasant. He was a great one to philosophize about his various opinions on life and most of them made good sense. Mike worked hard on his academics and did fairly well, although he still reserved most of his energies for baseball, and, perhaps at times, girls. Overall, Mike ' s record at USNA was outstanding and should make him successful in the Navy, no matter what branch he chooses. JAMES RICHARD HALEY San Antonio, Texas Jim came to Navy as one of the more experienced among his classmates, as he was just leaving three years of school at San Antonio College and the University of Texas. He fit right in to the military atmosphere of plebe JAMES RICHARD HALEY year since he had attended Texas Military Institute and was in the NROTC in college. Although not a star man in academics, Jim ' s studies never really gave him any trouble. Rather, especially after plebe year, he would spend a good part of every study hour pursuing his favor- ite hobby — photography. This, coupled with such ac- tivities as sailing, Spanish Club, Y.P. ' s, BAG and girls, managed to keep him busy all of the time. With his experience and ability to handle nearly every situation that might arise, Jim should certainly pursue a successful career in Navy line. 26 SECOND BATTALION TENTH COMPANY RICHARD JOHN HEMPEY JOHN STEVEN HYDE JACK DAVID JEWELL RICHARD JOHN HEMPEY St. Albans, Vermont Tiile at high school in his home state of Vermont, Rick served as his class Treasurer; a likely job for a future math major. Throughout his Academy career Rick had the reputation of being the man to see con- cerning academics. Standing in the top of the class, he will be a success in whatever branch of the Service he may pick. Despite his outstanding record Rick was not one to let academics occupy all of his time: he was active in the Newman Club and the Catholic Choir as well as being on several championship teams in volleyball and cross-country. " He appears well in any company, " as in the " True Gentleman, " applies to Rick. No one was better liked or respected and no one will be better fitted to serve his countrv or the Navy. JOHN STEVEN HYDE Natchitoches, Louisiana Steve, after a very successful high school career and being a top notch debater and speaker, came to USNA from upstate Louisiana. Even though he was a choir member and liked to play his guitar, he was still an ardent supporter of some of the better things. Fast cars and good times were his biggest loves, even though he did spend a summer ' s have at Jump School. Steve was usually brought around in the morning by the sound of panting which was originated by a chorus of members of the freshman class. The day vvas spent planning for the next weekend with frequent time outs for tests. Then he passed- his afternoon boxing, dinghy sailing or getting in a few games of squash. Steve ' s presence will be a contribution to any area of the Navy he enters. His out- standing character and personality should produce a fine officer and possibly even a gentleman. JACK DAVID JEWELL Sulphur, Oklahoma All of us who know Jack are grateful for the oppor- tunity. His quick smile and uncanny sense of humor did so much to relieve the little frustrations and trying moments of many a day. The " man who made Sulphur, Oklahoma famous " was always anxious to make life a little easier for his fellow midshipmen and was ready with a helping hand for anyone. With his warm sincerity he made new friends easily, and with his special brand of personal interest and loyalty he made these bond s of friendship stronger. His talents were a welcome addition to any team, club, or committee because Jack would always get the job done. We ' ll all miss his smile and his cheery disposition, but are well assured that with his desire to do well coupled with his natural ability to get along with others will take him far the rest of the way. 268 4 WILLIAM DENNIS LUNDBERG JOSEPH MANDICH WILLIAM DENNIS LUNDBERG North Kingstown, Rhode Island Denny came to us from Rhode Island. A Navy Junior, he moved around most of his life and the Naval Acade- my was just one of his stops. A sense of humor is one of his greatest assets. Seldom do you find him when he doesn ' t have a joke or a few words of wisdom. Denny spent most of his time trying to keep ahead of the Aca- demic Departments which kept him very busy; however he managed to work in the Class Ring and Crest Com- mittee and the French Club. Wlien graduation comes he will still be working, and it is certain that he will be a credit to whichever branch of service he chooses to enter. JOSEPH :MANDICH Aberdeen, Washington Coming to us straight from the sea and having a few more years than most of his classmates, Joe was anxious to begin his work Ln academics at USNA. He was born in Yugoslavia and at the age of fourteen, Joe found a second home in the United States and in particular the state of Washington. After high school Joe enlisted in the Navy and to many was known as the best " snipe " in the Seventh Fleet. Those that are acquainted with him appreciate the ' " happy-go-lucky " attitude which he possesses. Joe ' s interests at USNA included participation in both the Russian and Foreign Affairs Clubs. He was always ready to jump into an academic discussion and could usually stand up to any person on any subject. Joe ' s ability to get along with everyone and his mature outlook on life are two virtues that will carry him far. The Navy will profit from having Joe as one of its destroyermen. RICARD WARD MARTIN La Grande, Oregon Rick hails from La Grande, Oregon, and came to RICARD WARD MARTIN Canoe L. straight from high school. He found that Crab- town was very different from the mountains of his home state and he often reminisces about the good times he spent camping in them. He loves all sports and he is a standout on his Com- pany soccer and lightweight football teams. His favorite sport is squash and regardless of the season he is always ready for a fast game. Although Rick doesn ' t wear stars, he is star man of his room and is always willing and able to help his class- mates out of an academic jam. Rick ' s one failing is his inability to navigate the width of the natatorium. Due to hard work and diligence he has successfully beat summing. These same two traits, which typify Rick, will pave the way for a long and fruitful career in the Navy. 269 DAVID BURR McELVEIN DAVID EARL McKIE DAVID BURR McELVEIN Aclon, Massachusetts " Where ' s Cartwright! After a very successful year at Admiral Farragut Academy, Dave entered the Naval Academy with a Navy orientated background, having served with a helicopter squadron. He has enthusiastically entered into many facets of Academy life. Dave was often sought for help by his classmates, for he was never too busy to give eager assistance. On the sports field he found a love for rugby and also helped on the Company soccer team. Whether he follows after his father in Naval Aviation or chooses another branch, Dave ' s eagerness to meet a challenge will make him a fine officer. DAVID EARL McKIE La Mesa, CaUfoTnia Coming straight from sunny southern California, Dave was continually at odds with the Maryland weather. However, he finally reconciled himself to it and found peace in his bed. After playing tennis throughout high school, Dave continued as a member of the plebe team and then branched off into the Battalion and Company sports of soccer, cross-country, and squash. Although he didn ' t achieve stars until second class year, his academic record was generally of fine caliber, with electives in German and Math claiming his major interest. An easy- going, quiet sort of person, Dave won many friends with a quick smile and a slow temper. If he attends Nuclear Power School, as hoped for. Dave should have a success- ful career ahead in the sub-surface fleet. HAROLD K. MELTON Upon coming to the Naval Academy, Keith gave up his sports car for a pair of drill shoes, but the transition proved successful both for the Academ}- and Keith, who made life at the Academy as profitable as possible. It seemed impossible that Keith could maintain his above average grades with his extracurricular activities of swim- ming and pleasing the fairer sex. During plebe year Keith set a number of swimming records and. consequently, his bathrobe is unmistakable from the back. In regard to the opposite sex, perhaps no one dragged more than Keith during plebe year, a policy which he religiously main- tained throughout his upper-class years. Success in the future will certainly wink at this gentleman-scholar. ROBERT CLAYTON PERCIVAL ROBERT CLAYTON PERCIVAL Algona, Iowa Coming to us from Algona, Iowa, by way of the Mil- lard School, Bob has been a welcome member of the Brigade. Still a Midwesterner at heart, he has made his mark in the East and for the Blue and Gold by his efforts as a Navy oarsman. The qualities of outstanding devo- tion, and getting the job done right that he developed from rowing will be sure to stay with him wherever he goes. His quietness does not detract from the firmness and perseverance he has shown in his studies or his life in Bancroft Hall. As a fine worker and a qualified leader, Bob will be sure to be a success in whatever he undertakes in the Navy. SAMUEL THORNE NICHOLSON Durham, North Carolina Sam is from the college town of Durham, North Caro- lina, but he decided that the Navy was the life for him and so he entered USNA. He came here with a sense of dedication and desire and was able to maintain this spirit throughout his four years of study. His summers were spent working and learning on cruise and the plebe de- tail, and also anticipating the approaching leave. While at the Academy he was active in the various foreign re- lations activities and working with the Debate Team. After a year of light-weight crew he decided that he was better fitted for the intramural sports program. A fairly quiet worker, Sam maintained above average grades and the knowledge he acquired will certainly give him a good start to his future in the Surface Fleet. SECOND BATTALION TENTH COMPANY 271 SECOND BATTALION TENTH COMPANY RUSSELL EDWARD PLANITZER STEVEN SAMUEL SUTTON SEIDEN RUSSELL EDWARD PLANITZER Lunenburg, Massachusetts Although Russ spent a year at Sullivan Prep School before he came to the Academy, he still brought with him a very pronounced Boston accent. In case this wasn ' t enough, he was always proud to tell you that he came from Lunenburg, Massachusetts — " the crossroads of the world. " Russ liked the active life of a midshipman. In sports, he was the spirit of the company soccer and football teams. In the beginning of Plebe Summer, Russ decided that he wanted to make a career in the Marine Corps. The following four years have served only to strengthen that desire. On weekends Russ could usually be found exercising his unique ability to charm any young lady who happened to come his way. Wherever his future may lead him. his ambition and drive will surely make him welcome. STEVEN SAMUEL SUTTON SEIDEN Rio Vista, California Steve came to the Naval Academy from Rio Vista, California. Coming straight from high school, he made above average grades with little or no effort and worked hard on the completion of his aeronautical engineering major. A good squash and handball player, he boosted his battalion leams in both. Steve was active each year in the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference, direct- ing his efforts toward Housing and Messing. When not seeing a good movie, he could usually be found cuddled up in bed with a good book while listening to good music. Included in his future plans are Pensacola and completion of a master ' s degree in aeronautical engineer- ing. 272 4 J neipnian. THOMAS HENRY WALKER, JR. Camden, New York Born in Rome, New York, brought up in Camden, Tom had not traveled much before electing to come to the Academy. He brought with him an average taste for study, an avid interest in automobiles, and a well- developed musical ability. His taste for study has led him to average or better marks, he likes math least and history best; his interest in cars has made him a ready source of information on any and all phases of racing and general characteristics of all cars; his musical ability is reflected in the number of instruments in his room, from guitar to baritone bugle, the latter which he plays in the Drum and Bagle Corps, as he did for two years before coming to the Academy. After studying Latin for three years in high school to broaden his cultural appreciation, he decided to study a practical language, Portuguese. His sports include dinghy sailing for the Academy and camping on his leave time. His plans for the firture were prejudiced quite a bit by second class summer in Pensacola. Always going out of his way to help someone who asks, Tom has a large circle of friends, with whom he likes nothing better than to talk, especially about cars or music. Whatever his field of work in future years, he will bring many talents and a likeable personality to his tasks. LESTER GEORGE ZICK Norfolk, Virginia Les was born in Sumter. South Carolina, and lived in several cities on the mid-Atlantic coast before settling in his present home in Norfolk, Virginia at the age of ten. He and his brother, who is in the class of ' 67 at the Coast Guard Academy, spent many hours swim- ming in the surf. The predilection for swimming has shown up in Les ' membership in the Scuba Club, as well as in his becoming a qualified Navy Scuba Diver and NAUI instructor during his summer leave periods. He also plays football and baseball for the company intramural teams. After studying German for two years and Spanish for two and a half years in high school, Les is majoring in German. His other interests include coin collecting and investing on the stock market. He has never had prob- lems with dating the fairer sex. Because studies were never a serious problem. Les reads widely outside of the required curriculum. What- ever field Les decides to enter, his lively intelligence and wide spectrum of interests will make him one of the leaders.

At the end of that year, he received a SecNav appointment to the Academy. He continued his interest in physics, as well as participating in the French club, and teaching in the • Chapel Sunday School. He was intensely interested in handball and rugby, having played both since plebe year. Merch has an extreme interest in the Naval service and the military in general. Although he is extremely " gung ho " , he doesn ' t know for sure which way the wind will blow. Whichever it is, he is sure to be a fine officer and a credit to the service. STEPHEN DAVID ALLEY Goshen, Ohio After four very exciting years at Goshen High School, Steve caught a whiff of salt sea spray and decided to investigate what was causing it. He suddenly found himself in Navy Blue in June 1962 and began his earnest and devout study of the lore of the sea. Because of the most amiable of personalities, Steve found little difficulty in making a way for himself here at Navy and his par- ticipation in activities such as ocf an racing, basketball, and Company cross country will attest to this. Always ready to lend a hand when those of us who are not so gifted with the scholars ' tools were in need, Steve pre- sented an acumen that is not quite matched in the far reaches of this life. He is a friend, a fine man, and whatever be his service choice, he will be a very, capable officer. VICTOR PATRICK BUCKLEY McLean, Virginia Pat came from the great state of Virginia to the Academy as no stranger. His brother was in the class of ' 64, his father was graduated in ' 39. Pat has always faced life straightforwardly, except plebe year when he and his chin looked at the world with a 15° port list. One of the few men around that can see humor in almost anything, he has often dispelled tense moments with a quip that makes everyone forget the tension of the time. Taking 27% hours a semester while doing a great job in Company sports doesn ' t leave you much time. But he always had time to encourage you to do a better job and has helped plenty of academically low, spiritually low, or just plain mean old men with his encouragement. Wherever he goes Pat will take with him the same con- tagious philosophy that has made him such an asset to the Academy. DAVID LOUIS CLAUDE Virginia Beach, Virginia It was only a logical sequence of events that brought Dave to the shores of the Severn from the Norfolk vicinity. Dave ' s cultural interests were many and varied. Upon entering his room one would find, more likely than not, Dave lying on the rack listening to classical music and, at the same time reading a James Bond thriller, while, because of his French ancestry, he was always active in the French Club. By hauling lines for the big blue fleet, Dave escaped fall and spring P-rades while, .during the evenings, he graced the Glee Club with his booming voice. He will al- ways make friends easily, helping others as he himself seeks wings of gold. SECOND BATTALION ELEVENTH COMPANY 277 DAVID LOUIS CLAUDE WILLIAM VICTOR COWAN HELMUTS A. FEIFS WILLIAM VICTOR COWAN. Ill Fahbom, Ohio Graduating from Fairbom High School, in Fairborn, Ohio, Willie spent a year in the fleet before coming to USNA on a SecNav appointment. He brought to Navy a variety of talents and an always present smile. Young- ster year he picked up the nickname Honk, which thereafter became his official title. As a member of the art club, examples of his work could be seen in most anything from beat Army posters to cartoons in the Log. The Honk became well known for his sense of humor. He was a promoter of company spirit, and was always working on a project to that end, An accomplished guitar- ist and ardent fan of folk music, he could be found pass- ing much of his free time working on a new song for the next company party. He was also active in intramural soccer and lacrosse. Wherever he goes, the Honk will con- tinue%to be a leading personality, and will most certainly be an officer of the highest caliber. DENNIS ALLEN CROSBY Brookings, Oregon Arriving here, a civilian at heart, from Oregon, Denny easily and quickly made the transition to Navy life. His plebe summer developed him as a sailor, and he could often be seen swabbing his deck on those lonely Satur- day evenings. Plebe year saw him actively moving about, and it was here that we first gained appreciatfon of his philosophy for a good balance of work, play, and de- votion. Denny played squash, handball, soccer, basketball, and wrestling, a mixture which was an asset to both him and the teams he played for. His other extracurricular activities included Concert Band, Drum and Bugle Corps, and Chapel Choir. Youngster cruise found Denny sailing on the cruiser Newport News; at every liberty port he could be found either at the Officers ' Club, at some nearby town seeing the sights, or taking pictures of the countryside. The cruise went fast, but he returned again second class summer to fly airplanes in Pensacola and also to enjoy their warm, sandy beaches. When it came to academics, Denny always did well in this field, managing to earn Oceanography and Political Science majors as well as his regular course in marine engineering. A person who easily makes friends, is highly respected, and has great motivation, Denny is a very sincere, hard-working individual. HELMUTS A. FEIFS Chicago, Illinois Helmuts, after a year of chemical engineering at the University of Illinois, decided on a career in the Marine Corps. After two years of enlisted service, this " Gung Ho " Marine won his fleet appointment to the Academy. He brought with him an enthusiasm for sports and personal conditioning. This spirit led him to be feared in rugby and fieldball and admired in crew.

Helmuts is a firm believer in plebe year and bachelorhood — in that order. But he has still managed to gain the respect and admiration of the members of 278 SECOND BATTALION ELEVENTH COMPANY BRIAN ANTHONY JOSEPH FLATLEY ALAN RHYS HENDERSHOT all classes and of both sexes. If Helmuts does embark upon the ship of matrimony it will have to be with a Latvian gunnery sergeant of the Women ' s Marine Corps who can " brace-up " — unless one of his many beautiful drags can get him first. BRIAN ANTHONY JOSEPH FLATLEY Arlington, Virginia Brian came to the Academy with an extensive back- ground in Navy ways, having both his father and a bro- ther as grads. Brian ' s many friends throughout the Bri- gade knew him as " Flats " , a continually happy guy that never let the Academic Department, or anything else, get him down. Brian ' s lead pointed the way in many demonstrations of Brigade Spirit through the Brigade Activities Committee. His buddies will always remember how well he sang, whether out on the town with friends, in the Chapel Choir or in the Musical Clubs Show. On the playing field, Brian was among the best, having been on four Brigade and regimental championship teams in soccer. Battalion track and cross country. On holidays and weekends, you could always find " the Flats " with a pretty girl by his side. Navy Line looks mighty fine to Brian after graduation; on that happy day the Navy will gain a talented leader. We wish him the best of luck. ALAN RHYS HENDERSHOT Indiana, Pennsylvania From the " Christmas Tree Capital " of the world, Al brought a very enviable athletic record to the Naval Academy. He played plebe and varsity football for two years, also spending quite a bit of time in the Mc- Donough Hall wrestling loft. Never to be outdone in anything, " lo " displayed fierce determination whether studying, singing, partying, or sleeping. His weather eye for the fairer sex always stood him in good stead and in this respect, he kept the rest of us guessing. He had a profound interest in the ideals and heritage of the Naval service, and an intense desire to be a good officer. Whether it be in the sky or on land Al will certainly be a credit to the uniform he dons. JOHN MICHAEL KELLY JOHN MICHAEL KELLY Alexandria, Virginia Having been associated with the Navy all his life as a Navy junior, Mike had no difficulty in adapting to the Naval Academy. His warm personality brought him countless friends throughout the Brigade. Always an active and outstanding participant in athletics. " Gazelle " Kelly displayed his talents in Varsity lacrosse and Com- pany cross-country and, of course, excelled. Mike could always be found with a super-attractive female at his side on leave or liberty and was not one to miss a good time or a good meal. Although consistently con- testing with the Academic Departments, he never let them win; however, as he states, they ' ve come close in a couple of instances. Mike gained the admiration and re- spect of his subordinates as well as his classmates in i i five year tour at the Academy and it is certain that this high regard will be carried over into the fleet to provide him with an outstanding military career. 279 ' mmm SECOND BATTALION ELEVENTH COMPANY QUENTIN JOHN LARSEN BOBBY RAY LIGHT THOMAS DOMINICK LoMACCHIO JR. QUENTIN JOHN LARSEN Palisade, New Jersey To listen to Quent talk one would begin to believe that Utopia is somewhere in Northern New Jersey near Palis- ade. Quent ' s route to the hallowed halls of USNA was somewhat circuitous. After spending two years at Notre Dame he decided to enrich the Marine Corps spending two years there. Beginning with plebe year, he used his drive and ambition to good advantage. Always willing to help a classmate, he was often the man who made the difference between success and failure. His easy smile will be long remembered by those who knew him. Always an ardent supporter of sports, he played Plebe Lacrosse, later playing fieldball and other Batt and Company sports. Although he never played football he was one of the leading supporters of the Punt Principle in academics, gaining his stars second class year. Plans for the future include marriage, the Marine Corps or CEC in which he could use his fine mathematical mind. His aptitude for the service will enable him to make a success of any career he chooses to pursue. BOBBY RAY LIGHT Cumberland, Maryland Graduating from Fort Hill High School, Cumberland, Maryland, in 1960, Bob entered the Navy and received his Academy appointment through the Naval Academy Prep School at Bainbridge. Being a former Navy man, Bob certainly had no problem fitting into Academy life, or helping to fit friends into it. such as " George. " A hard worker, both on the athletic field and off it, Bob divided his time primarily among intramural football, studies, and his guitar, and proved himself proficient in all of them. Always quick to answer the call of one in need of help, Bob certainly will have no difficulty in assuring an outstanding career of Naval service. THOMAS DOMINICK LoMACCHIO JR. Brooklyn, New York As a bonafide New Yorker. Tom found life at USNA a change of pace. Having spent a year at CCNY, where he helped to form that school ' s first gymnastic team, Tom decided to favor Navy with his scholastic and athletic abilities. After captaining the plebe team, he went on to provide a willing and capable addition to the varsity. Tom ' s inexhaustible energy, and ready smile, while keep- ing a good academic average and playing a varsity sport made him known and liked by all. His fine attitude and desire for achievement will be an asset to all phases of the Naval service. JAMES ELLIS MAITLAND Boimtijul Utah Jim came to the Academy after graduating from high school in Bountiful, Utah. He spent plebe year in the 18th company and most of youngster summer in the hospital, the result of a knee operation. First class cruise was his first time aboard ship on the high seas. His affinity to water was reflected by his frequent member- ship on the sub-squad. When not swimming, he played Battalion tennis and Company basketball and softball. Jim had no extracurricular activities but never had excess time on his hands. He divided his interests among sports, movies, reading, and sleeping, but more often than not the latter dominated. Alertness in class paid off for him 280 f- i?%y ' ' v - ' ■ • ■■■■ JAMES ELLIS MAITLAND BRIAN DOUGLAS MACKENZIE JOSEPH KELLY MINTON with good grades. Academically his interest was history which he majored in under the option program first offered to the Class of 1966. Upon graduation. Jim hopes to find a challenge and channels for his interests in whichever area of the Naval Service he enters. BRIAN DOUGLAS MACKENZIE J ' ineland, New Jersey Upon graduation from high school, Mac turned down several scholarships and decided to come to Navy. Here he played a year of plebe football and then turned his athletic interests to Batt football and fieldball. His desire to win in the best way possible made him a real com- petitor, as his classmates soon found out in their informal weekend games. In the hall, he could usually be found in his room, studying and humming along with his rock and roll records. In between water fights, he found time enough to hit the books and consistently make the Superintendent ' s List. His frankness and friendliness won him the respect of his classmates. In the future, Mac ' s determination and desire to get things done will undoubtedly make him a fine Naval officer. JOSEPH KELLY MINTON LMe Rock, Arkansas After attending one year at Little Rock University, J. K. left his home in Arkansas to come to USNA. A champion " hogcaller " in Arkansas, J. K. was able to make a smooth change to the Chapel Choir and Glee Club at Navy. He had no trouble in academics being able to maintain a 4.0 average throughout most of his midshipman career. J. K. showed his remarkable ability for leadership by spending many hours each week giving help to anyone who was having trouble in academics. Many hours were also spent in studying his own field of interest, Nuclear Science. With his southern hospitality, he never had a lack of friends. However, there were numerous occasions when battles of the Civil War were refought — sometimes with far different outcomes than history leads us to believe. In the fleet J. K. will be able to put his varied abilities to good use. The Navy indeed gained an outstanding and promising young officer in J. K. FLOYD LESTER MOCK JR. FLOYD LESTER MOCK. JR. Kansas City, Kansas Floyd, born and reared in Kansas City, brought to the Academy from the Wheat State a distinct and un- usual personality that has continuously gained friends and admirers. Before entering the Academy and so realizing a lifetime dream and ambition, Floyd spent a carefree year as a " jay hawker " at the University of Kansas. He never had a great deal of trouble with academics, some- how always managing to keep the necessary grades while also reading numerous books. His capacity for reading proved a valuable asset in helping to obtain a history major. Floyd was rather notorious as a plebe indoclri- nator, but under that hard, outer crust was an individual much warmer than most. Many times he was discovered giving extra instruction to plebes and trying to help all who were having troubles. His warm heart also was shown in his love and conduct toward his various pets. Floyd was extremely active in intramural sports, special- izing in basketball. His outstar.ding personality and character shall prove a very valuable asset to the Navy, and his career promises to be rich and rewarding both to himself and to the Service. 281 - ' ■ " ■ ' ■ ' ' MPPffi SECOND BATTALION ELEVENTH COMPANY RICHARD ALAN PLOTKIN ALEX FREDERICK ROLAND :h JAY ALLEN SEARS RICHARD ALAN PLOTKIN Detroit, Michigan A native of Detroit, Dick entered the Academy with the class of 1966 after a year at the University of De- troit. During plebe summer he lost some excess weight, a carry-over from fraternity parties at Delta Sigma Phi, and managed to always smile, even at inopportune times. When academic year arrived, he applied his enthusiasm to studying, running cross-country and living in the 14th Company. As June Week approached, he could look back on a job well done. Youngster cruise was spent aboard the carrier Shangri La and the five days spent in New York were particularly memorable. As a young- ster, Dick moved into the 8th Company which later be- came the 11th for second class year. He was active on Company football, soccer and squash teams. It was taken lightly when he would say, " Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow you may be commissioned, " for those of us close to him knew him as a deeply motivated, hard- working person, and, more importantly, a sincere friend. ALEX FREDERICK ROLAND Greenville. Rhode Island From the beginning, Alex knew there could be no other place than the United States Naval Academy. As a young boy, he began sailing the Narragansett Bay near his Rhode Island home and soon his life and ambition became the sea. While in high school, Alex was the excellent leader as Student Council president, and the excellent student as in the top ten members of his class. Recognized for his endeavors, he was appointed to the Academy upon graduation, and, since the day he entered these portals, he has done his best to make our class greater. Ambition and intelligence placed his name on the Superintendent ' s List, but in his effort to gain ex- cellence in his own academics, he never failed to answer the call, " Hey, Alex, how do you do this? " With similar unselfishness, he threw his devotions into becoming an outstanding plebe his first year, and a staunch supporter of the system as an upperclassman. His leadership has awarded him with the greatest respect from his class- mates and his subordinates. Whatever branch of the Navy Alex chooses, the future shall show they did justice to each other. JAY ALLEN SEARS Davenport, Iowa Al came to the Academy straight from the corn beit of Iowa. After his high school days in Davenport, he came to school in the East a little leary of big city life. Plebe year seemed to bring out the best in Al. No one, upperclass or classmate alike, could ever tell what he was going to say or do, and his sense of humor could always bring a laugh from everyone, even in the darkest moments. Competition has always been a key word in Al ' s life. Whether playing a varsity or company sport, or jyst wrestling in Bancroft Hall, his determination and physical ability make him a winner. During his three upperclass years he was a mainstay on the 150 pound 282 RICHARD PAUL WILLIAMS DONALD LINCOLN WINNERS MICHAEL CHARLES WUNSCH ilm football team and was noted for his aggressiveness. Al had no trouble making and keeping friends throughout the brigade. There was never a dull moment to be had within a seven mile radius of Al. but at the same time, he always seemed to know when to laugh and when to listen, pos- sessing an uncanny ability to say just the right thing to help and encourage a classmate. Though undecided as to what branch of the Navy to enter upon graduation. Al is sure to bring his determination, sincerity and unique sense of humor with him. RICHARD PAUL WILLL MS Las Vegas, Nevada Rick, a very determined individual, came to the Naval Academy with many purposes in -mind. Some of his interests were travel, scuba diving, cars, music and of course, girls. His summers away from the Academy saw him visiting most of Europe, Canada, Mexico and the United States. In academics Rick was not a slash but was a persevering person who will surely succeed in becoming a fine Naval Officer. After graduation. Navy line looks mighty fine to him. His extracurricular ac- tivities included the Masqueraders. the Musical Club shows, the Scuba Club and Foreign Relations Club. In the sports department. Rick played soccer, field ball and tried Battalion lacrosse as well. On the weekends you could usually find him in a huddle of company mates out on Dewey Field. Such varied talents point to a long and successful career. DONALD LINCOLN WINNERS Easl Hampton, Connecticut Don came to the Academy after graduating from high school in New Britain, Connecticut. Because of in- juries susta i.ed plebe year, his aspirations of playing foot- ball or running track for Navy never materialized. Be- cause of his love for sport and athletic competition, he tried out for the crew team winning his varsity " N " vounaster vear. Althouah Don ' s books never seemed to be among his most appreciated possessions, he never failed to recognize their usefulness. Throughout his four years at the Academy, Don worked diligently, taking a keen interest in all undertakings. To Don, the most enjoyable aspects of Academv life were his summer training periods, especially leave. He was always the first person to say " yes " when the word party was mentioned. Despite his many female admirers, Don ' s interest never fell upon any one lass for more than a short while. Don was known for being sincere and soft spoken, having a quiet, unassuming way of making friends. Whichever field he chooses for his career in the Naval service, Don ' s determination should net much success. MICHAEL CHARLES WUNSCH Feasterville, Pennsylvania Mike came to the Academy from Feasterville, Penn- sylvania, bringing with him a varied assortment of athletic letters from Neshaminy High School, a flare for the artistic, a true intellectual curiosity, and a personality equally strong in humor, principle, and amiability. He has developed his athletic ability, through plebe and varsity wrestling and football and other intramural sports. His artistic talents are best exemplified by his Eleventh Company Tigers which have held sway over the company area since the beginning of secgnd class year, but repeated successes in poster contests and the Art and Printing Club are further testimony to his skill and initiative. Indicative of Mike ' s intellectual zeal and capacity are his option curriculum and additional electives. As a member of the plebe detail, as motivator of company spirit, and as a man always ready to help peer and sub- ordinate alike, he has won the respect and friendship of all associated with him and shown that good example is the very essence of good leadership. In his four years at the Academy, Mike has proved that determination and conscientious application of self are the prerequisites and inevitable determinants of success — here, in the fleet, and throughout life. 283 mmmmmi SECOND CLASSMEN Back Row; J.

AMEEL St. Clair, Michigan Fred came to our regimented halls fresh from the University of Michigan with a quick and catching sense of humor, an ability to get along easily with anyone, and a facility in the art of leadership. From the very start it was obvious that Fred was a leader and producer with the fortunate ability to infect all about him with the spon- taneous humor and good fellowship which is so naturally a part of him. No gathering, formal or informal, was ever quite complete unless " The Sheik " was there. Whether on the yawls, the tennis courts, or playing 150 lb. football, Fred was an integral and valuable asset to his classmates and the Brigade. His favorite avocations were girls, sports, sleeping, and the French language, with de- cidedly more success in the first three area s. With his natural ability to lead and to inject humor into any situa- tion, Fred will make a fine member in the flving fra- ternity of Naval Aviation, his driving ambition. WILLIAM ALBERT ANDERSON Minneapolis, Minnesota Bill, known as Andy to many, claims Hopkins, Minne- sota — a suburb of Minneapolis — as his home although his residence has ranged from Canada to Surinam, South America. Coming from these widely varying places, he has acquired an interest in current events and geography and occasionally just pages through his Atlas studying maps. Being somewhat of an outdoor type, he enjoys fishing, camping, and canoe trips. Since coming here to Navy, Bill has become interested in a wide variety of sports including squash, handball, tennis, and Softball. Basically quiet and serious, Bill turns into an avid com- petitor on the field or in the " courts. ' " Bill has also de- veloped a bug about physical fitness and works out quite frequently. Carrying stars throughout his Academy career, Bill has never really had much difficulty with his aca- demics. Due to his natural ability and diligence, he has managed to work his way up to the top few in the class. Bill is considering both the Civil Engineering Corps and Nuclear Power. Regardless of what he finally decides, Bill will make his presence and knowledge felt. ATOMIC E. ERGY COMMISSION FELLOW 287 JON HASELL BARTON ROBERT CALDWELL BELLAS, JR THOMAS FRANCIS CLARK JON HASELL BARTON Greensboro, North Carolina The contributions of Greensboro, North Carolina, to the world include Dolly Madison, O ' Henry, and Jon Barton. The transition from civilian life to military was not a hard one for Bart, and he considered eleven months of plebe year quite sufficient. However, he was quite taken aback by the lack of female companionship. This he remedied youngster year by dating every weekend for seven con- secutive months. That detailed association with females from Baltimore and D.C., not to mention Annapolis, was sufficient to prejudice Jon in favor of North Carolina women. Second class year struck him with the challenge of the sea via the navigation and weapons courses . . . weapons, especially! Despite this, Bart was serious about academics, pursuing a major in oceanography. He valued the friendships made at USNA, and considered them the best part of his education. ROBERT CALDWELL BELLAS. JR. Asbury Park, Neiv Jersey After graduation from Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School, New Jersey, a tour in the Submarine Service and a year at NAPS, Bob ' s desire to enter the Academy was fulfilled. An ardent oarsman. Bob helped win the National Championship plebe year and earned his " N " Youngster year in Heavyweight Crew. A fierce competitor with a temper to match. Bob also dominated the Company field- ball team ' s offensive unit with his good scoring ability. In two and a half ypars he has established himself aca- demically proficient, and is well-liked and respected by all who know him, mainly because he accepts his respon- sibilities and duties with a determination to do his best. Bob ' s combination of a mature outlook on life, a love for the Navy, and an unlimited source of energy will surely qualify him for success upon graduation. THOMAS FRANCIS CLARK Bethlehem, Pennsylvania Tom entered the Academy twenty days after he grad uated from Notre Dame High School in Bethlehem, Penn sylvania, and the transition didn ' t seem to bother him a bit Being a Navy junior he was not overawed by the military life and immediately proceeded to gain many new friends He always worked diligently in his studies but was careful to reserve enough time for active participation in intra- mural sports. His first love on the athletic field was 150 lb. football, but he was also an avid soccer en- thusiast. If prevented from flying, Tom plans on spending his career as an unrestricted line officer. The life of the party at any party, Tom is sure to have an enjoyable future in any branch of the Navy. This, combined with his fierce dedication to men under his charge, as evi- denced by his work on the " Plebe Detail, " will un- doubtedly result in the addition of an extremely capable officer to his next duty station. PAUL DAVID COPENBARGER Geary, Oklahoma Paul, a native Oklahoman. spent one year at the Uni versity of Oklahoma before winning an NROTC appoint ment to the Naval Academy. After a slow start plebe year Paul, who is one of the youngest members of his class brought his grades up enough to earn stars. As a plebe he was a member of the Battahon crew team and the Company cross-country team. As an upperclassman, he joined the ocean sailing team and spent most of his weekends sailing. During the winter months, Paul was a member of the Battalion debate team where his love for 288 f SECOND BATTALION TWELFTH COMPANY PAUL DAVID COPENBARGER WAYNE DANIEL DuBOIS Diaa nll fc.

WAYNE DANIEL DuBOIS Wilson, ISorth Carolina A native of Wilson, North Carolina, Wayne came to the Academy via North Carolina State. The industriousness and perseverence that he showed there carried him through plebe year. Never relishing the thought of carrying a rifle, Wayne joined the Drum and Bugle Corps during plebe summer and has been a dedicated member throughout his four years. Not possessing athletic prowess, WavTie devoted himself to the support of Company sports. His candid humor during study hour left us with many a humorous moment. An avid music fan, he could be found during any free time stacking the stereo with LP ' s. His drive and humor should make him a welcome addition to any career he might choose to follow in the Navy. ROBERT G STNNE ELWELL Slaten Island, New York Coming to the Academy from Staten Island, New York, after attending New Dorp High School, Bob finished his high school education at Admiral Farragut Academy, New Jersey. Having prepared himself for the military life, Bob easily fell into Naval Academy routine. During his years at USNA, Bob played Company cross-country, heavy- weight football, and Company squash, getting a great deal of enjoyment from participating in these sports. Besides sports, Bob enjoys reading and dragging, as well. When the caps go into the air and the class of ' 66 graduates, Bob will go out to the Fleet to which he will be an asset, and into a life from which he will receive great satis- faction.

' Jh Hailing from the " West Side " of Cleveland, Duke has become an interesting contribution to the Brigade. His main interest has been sports, especially football and his beloved Cleveland Browns. A hard worker with a sense of humor, he could be found most often in the weight room at the field house, mumbling about those extra pounds. After a year of plebe football, he participated in Batt lacrosse, Batt wrestling, and. of course, Company football. His good-naturedness and sincerity have made him popular with all of his classmates, while his rock and roll collection of records have made many a passerby stop and wonder. Yet, he has always had the initiative to study hard whenever academics started to get tough. Duke ' s drive and personality will, undoubtedly, make him a fine Naval officer. HERSCHEL HUGHES. JR. Orlando, Florida Straight out of high school in Orlando, Florida, Herschel arrived at the Naval Academy green and starry-eyed, as most of us were; however, he brought with him a gentle- manly southern tradition that managed to prevail and to win for him many friends. Having no problems at mas- tering academics, or, rather, letting no academic problems master him, Hersh was able to devote much of his time to extracurricular activities. They included the Officer ' s Christian LInion, The Naval Academy Christian Associa- tion and the Italian Club. His love for the romantic and adventurous way of doing things was realized in Shields Sailing and the Ocean Sailing Squadron, in which he par- ticipated in the 1964 Bermuda Race. Hersh plans to lake to the air upon graduation, but foremost on his mind is an active participation in space travel and exploration.

Paul brought to the Academy a unique combination of intelligence, competitiveness, and dedica- tion, which, coupled with a winning smile, soon secured him a position at the top of his class. His fierce sense of competition in academics made him not only a four year " star man " but a permanent name on the Superintendent ' s list. Always a well rounded person, his deteniiination ex- tended to the field of athletics where he was an indis- pensible member of the Company ' s football team and a top Battalion wrestler. After graduation, Paul will, un- doubtedly, continue his education in postgraduate work and is looking forward to a highly successful naval career. BURKE PROGRAM GEORGE THOMAS KAYE Lorain, Ohio Coming directly from high school, Tom joined the Brigade with a grin and has kept it ever since. His good- naturedness and ability to get along with people have made him popular with his classmates. His music and literature interests range from classical music to jazz flute, and from J. D. Salinger to Shakespeare. Perhaps this is best showTi in his extracurricular activities: Chapel Choir, Glee Club, Musical Club Show, Band, and the Masqueraders. Although he is far from outstanding in athletics, he enjoyed Company squash, soccer, and the weekends of friendly football. Never accused of over- studying, Tom could usually be found in his room during study hour, organizing and inventing games to while away the time. However, he has maintained a high enough average for a future in Navy Line and postgrad- uate work in oceanography. JAY WILLIAM KENT ' Reading, Massachusetts Leaving Reading, Massachusetts, behind and bringing only his New England " twang, " Jay came to the Academy directly after graduating from high school. With high hopes of becoming Reading ' s first Naval hero, he found the rigors of plebe year a bit hectic. However, with that first stripe and a new outlook on life, Jay put his mind to beating the academic departments. Since he found mathematics the " easiest nut to crack, " Jay concentrated his efforts in that area. Never one to be left standing in a corner, Jay always found enough time on the week- ends to enjoy his favorite pastime of dragging the fair sex. Whenever he wasn ' t studying or dragging, he could be found in a squash court striving to improve his game. The warm days of Spring would lure him out to the soft- ball field where he filled the position of catcher. Always quick with a smile and easy-going, Jay has made many friends at the Academy. The future undoubtedly holds many opportunities for a person with Jay ' s desire and drive. SECOND BATTALION TWELFTH COMPANY 291 HiV PHILIP JOHN MORRILL THOMAS PAUL OXFORD JOHN scon REDD ,di PHILIP JOHN MORRILL Sania Monica. CaUjornia Phil has come a long way since he came to the Naval Academy. Originally a resident of Southern Caifornia, he attended UCLA for two years in the NROTC as an en- gineering student. At home, he has such diverse hobbies as skin diving, rocketry, and electronics. Spending plebe year in the Awful Eighth Company, Phil was transferred to the Twelfth Company at the end of youngster year. His academics have been good and he hopes to gradua te with a 3.0 average or better. Because he has validated several courses, Phil will be able to get majors in both physics and math. He hopes this will enable him to get into the Nuclear Power Program. Active in the SCUBA Club, he finds enough time to run a small radio repair business. Phil is easy going and gets along well with everyone; he should have no problems attaining his goals. THOMAS PAUL OXFORD Jacksonville, Florida Tom, a Navy Junior, was graduated from Northern Forrest High School in Jacksonville. Florida, as Senior Class President. After considering Rice and Georgia Tech, he decided in favor of the Academy, which he entered the summer of his graduation. Managing to finally make his way through Plebe Year, he was a reasonable success as a Youngster, sexruring a position on the Superintendent ' s List for the first time and becoming a member of the Bri- gade Hop committee. Among his sports interests have been Battalion football, rugby, and lacrosse, though the lure of Farragut Field in the winter has made Company fieldball his favorite. With his ability to get along well with his peers and a definite potential for leadership, he should do well as an officer in the Fleet. An Engineering major, Tom hopes to continue his education with postgraduate work, possibly through the Navy EDO program. JOHN SCOTT REDD Sidney, Iowa Scotty hails from the " Corn Belt " of Iowa, bringing to the Academy a happy disposition and a typical lowan drive to do a job just a little bit better than the next fellow. In this, he succeeds admirably well. His grades plac ' e him in the top half percent of his class, and his extracurricular activities are manifold. Scotty is active in religious affairs both at the Academy (NACA and OCU) and at home. To many of his friends around the world (!) he is known as " KODQI Scotty " and with this identity he leads in the activities of W3AD0, the Brigade Radio Club. He is a Battalion Honor Representative and on the tennis and pistol teams as well. Scotty and the Navy have many fine and mutually rewarding years ahead of them. We wish him the best of luck. FULBRIGHT SCHOLAR Uruguay WILLIAM ALFRED SIMMONS Stockton, Illinois Bill came to the Academy from a small Illinois town named Stockton. Not knowing, really, what to expect, he arrived open-eyed and ready for anything, and he got it plebe year. His main interests were pistol shooting, stay- ing out of the hospital and flying, but not necessarily in that order. Bill could always be found studying or reading something on aviation, usually the latter. He so enjoyed •Youngster cruise on a destroyer, especially the rough weather, that his desire for Naval Aviation was intensified. Aviation summer was the highpoint of his four years at the Academy. Bill diligently logged his flight time so that it could be used to secure his private pilot ' s license. Graduation will find him somewhere in Naval Aviation, as he has been pointing toward that end throughout his career as a midshipman.

Hillsboro, North Carolina Although born in California, " K. C. " adopted the South and now claims Hillsboro, North Carolina, as his home. After spending a year at the University of Florida, Ken decided to leave his Joe College image at home and join the ranks of midshipmen. With him, however, he brought a soft spot in his heart for southern belles and the warm climate. Never one to let academics interfere with sleep, he could be found quite often in a supine position on his beloved " blue trampoline. " Sometimes at odds with the E.H. G. and the Language Depart- ments, he managed to fight them off successfully through each campaign. A true salt, K. C. spent many cold hours on the Chesapeake with the sailing squadron. Sold on Naval Aviation after second-class summer, he hopes to seek the golden wings after graduation. STOUGHTON STERLING III Memphis, Tennessee Skip ' s arrival at Annapolis was nothing new to him since, being a Navy Junior, his move was one from Porter Road to Bancroft Hall. As Secretary of the Class Ring and Crest Committee and as a D.J. on WRNV, Skip found his many idle hours well taken care of, but, being very re- sourceful, he still managed to fit in several hours of leisure during the day. Varsity fencing claimed him during the fall and winter sets while the invigoration of the fresh spring air captured his talents as Varsity lightweight crew manager the third set. Never one to be overly con- cerned about academics, Skip elected to join the " Famous STOUGHTON STERLING Few " by making " canoe U " a five-year course. Antici- pating a career in Naval Aviation, Skip should do well in whatever branch of the service he enters. 293 MmMi SECOND BATTALION TNA ELFTH COMPANY ALAN W. SWINGER TERRY JOHN TEREBESSY ALAN W. SWINGER Berwyn, lUinois Al spent one year in the NROTC unit at Illinois Insti- tute of Technology before coming to the Naval Academy. He cultivated a keen interest in sailing that eventually led to his obtaining command of several of the Academy ' s Luder Yawls. Al sailed on the " Resolute " in the 1964 Bermuda Race. During the winter season he was a tough competitor in Brigade boxing as well as being the busi- ness manager of the Musical Club ' s shows. In the years ahead, Al ' s love for the sea, his competitive spirit and amiable personality will be an asset to him and the Navy. TERRY JOHN TEREBESSY Aurora, Illinois Before coming to the Academy, Terry, alias the Turk, spent one eventful year at the University of Illinois. Then, during the summer of ' 62, he traded wine, women, and song for a uniform, rifle, and some shoe polish as he entered the pearly gate at Maryland Avenue. Being a musician at heart, Turk attempted to play anything with strings, and this included almost everything from a banjo to a violin. He was also a good man with a sabre, and he spent a great many of his afternoons in the fencing loft. The rest of his afternoons were spent at the pool where he was trying to break his own record (?) in the 200 yard free-style. After graduation, Terry plans to make a career in the wild blue yonder of Naval Aviation. 294 HARRY AUGUSTUS THAETE III Havertoicn, Pennsylvania Harry ' s good nature and quick wit were a welcome addition to USNA and the 12th Company. His contagious good humor never flagged, even during the dreariest days of the " Dark Ages. " Although plagued by a knee injury, he was extremely active in the athletic realm, playing J. V. soccer and lightweight football. His first love, how- ever, was his ba ss guitar which he played as a member of the talented " Spiffies " for two and a half years. " Tater " was not at all adverse to leave and liberty and could often be found spending his vacation down on the sunny beach- es of Ocean City, N.J. He takes to the fleet a winning combination of attitude and ability, which should make him a success at whatever he does. WILLIAM ALLISON WOOD OIney, Illinois Being a much travelled Navy junior, the names Jack- sonville. Newport. Coronado, and Quonset Point were all familiar to " Woody. " Bill came to USNA from the center of population of the U. S.. Olney. Illinois, where in high school he lettered in football, tennis, and track. His natural ability with a racquet earned him a spot on the Plebe tennis team. When not in his beloved " pad, " he could be found on the Battalion football field or the Dahlgren courts. As his average attests. Bill found academics no problem, and what little free time he had was spent working toward a Math Major. Always looking for the finer things in life, " Woody " made up for lost time on summer cruises. LIpon gradua- tion, he plans to follow in his father ' s footsteps and wear the Navy ' s Wings of Gold.

He has upheld the tradition of excellence by main- taining a star average for four years and by filling the back of his B-Robe to overflowing with letters earned on Navy ' s racquets squads. Steve ' s subtle humor and quietly effective leadership have justifiably elevated him to leading positions in the Brigade Striper Organization, the French Club, the Lin- guist and the " N " Club. The enviable qualities of his outstanding character, hard work, charity and humility, are the assets with which Steve will embark on his career. His journey, wherever it may take him, cannot but be rewarding and successful. BURKE PROGRAM RONALD CLAYTON BACH Minneapolis, Minnesota Ron came to the Naval Academy from Minneapolis, Minnesota, and immediately showed his athletic ability by making the plebe pistol team. Ron possessed a perfect record in his conflicts with the academic departments ' endeavors to trouble his stay at the Academy. Although he often tempted fate in academics, he always got the grades whenever he needed them. Somewhat a Romeo, Ron ' s numerous letters from his lovelies amazed all who knew him. When not writing letters or sleeping, Ron could be found plaving tennis or in the conditioning room throwing the barbells around. Ron, with a flair for the adventurous and the dangerous, plans to earn, the Navy wings of gold and live the life of the flying bachelor. CRAWFORD LEE BENEDICT eulow , Connecticut A New Englander all the way, Benny calls Newtown, Connecticut, his home town. After graduating in the top of his high school class, he travelled to the Midwest, where he spent a year at Kansas University before finally arriving at USNA. With a year in the Kansas U. NROTC unit behind him, Benny had little trouble adapt- ing to spit-shined shoes and regimentation. He found the Academy ' s academic system well-geared to his own in- terests, and has consistently maintained a star average. At the same time, his athletic ability has repeatedly dem- onstrated itself on the varsity soccer field, and during the 1964 season he had the distinction of playing with Navy ' s NCAA National Champions. During the off season, Benny is coach and a leading scorer of the Thirteenth Company fieldball team. But most of all, Benny is a great friend. His patience, drive, and cool determination, coupled with his remarkable sense of humor will serse both him and the Navy well in his future years of service.

Barringlon, Rhode Island Coming from a Navy family, Dad, as he is called by his friends, showed an affinity for the Navy at an early age. After graduating from Central High School of Phila- delphia in 19.58, Roland decided to offer his many talents to the Navy. After giving the Fleet and NAPS a try, he decided on USNA. With his arrival at the Academy, the salt content in the area rose considerably. Despite the efforts of the Executive and Academic Departments, Roland remained undaunted by the routine and more often than not could be found in a horizontal position during his free time. With his well-rounded personality and versatility, marriage and the nuclear Silent Service hold a strong part in the heart of the " old man. " NEIL MAXWELL BRENNAN Edgewater, Maryland Born right here in our own Academy Hospital, Neil has lived in Annapolis all his life. He graduated from Annapolis High School in 1962 where he excelled in student government activities. Always an avid sports fan, Neil took naturally to the Academy intramural pro- gram, with Batt football, swimming, water polo, and company fieldball his major fields of endeavor. Close to home as he was, Neil will be remembered for " Mom Brennan ' s " chow packages and the many good times spent water skiing on the South River. Academically, Neil had little trouble attaining the Superintendent ' s list continually throughout his four years. Always in an easy going nature, Neil will be a welcome addition in his chosen field somewhere in Na T Line. GARY WILLIAM FISKE Framingham, Massachusetts Arriving from Massachusetts with dreams of six stripes and a fervent desire to organize the Brigade, Gary soon found these to be equally impossible tasks. A willing and capable worker, he could always be found in the midst of any company project. His friendly manner and ability to take ribbing contributed much to the congenial atmos- phere always to be found in his room. His excellent grades demonstrate well his ability to apply himself fully to any task. A notable BAG man, Gary may always be remembered for a certain Army game balloon. With grad- uation, the Academy ' s loss will be the Navy ' s gain. GARY ROBERT GRAY Sherman, Texas While a senior at Sherman High in his hometown near Dallas, Texas. Gary decided to come to the Naval Acad- emy. Being an outstanding student and a good all-around athlete, this was an easy goal. Continuing his football efforts at USNA, Gary became an important member of the Big Blue Team. His four years on the Severn have not changed his love for Texas and he is always ready to defend it as the best part of the country. The big likeable Texan is best known for his wild dancing, his way (?) with women, his great personality, and his wry sense of humor. No matter which branch of the service Gary chooses, it will receive an outstanding officer. 302 i ft THIRD BATTALION THIRTEENTH COMPANY GARY ROBERT GRAY FREDRICK MARION GREGG w ■inpti lA, Cart soon m ' spii lies te at ,5» it s ein Ib " Ivto way ' ■ " Can ' FREDRICK MARION GREGG II Virginia Beach. J irginia Being both the son and the brother of Naval aviators, Fred ' s homes were varied, but the Gregg family finally settled in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This diversified back- ground was reflected in his interests and talents which varied from sports cars and classical music, to sports and a healthy interest in the opposite sex. While earning a major in Italian, Fred maintained a good grade average in all of his courses. Though Fred ' s athletic endeavors were not on the Varsity field, his performance and de- termination for many company and battalion sports squads, were certainly of a varsity caliber. His ability to make friends and get the job done well will make him a welcome addition to Naval Aviation. STANLEY ROBERT HOLM. JR. Norfolk, Virginia After graduation from his hometown high school in Norfolk, Stan attended Columbian Prep in Washington, D.C. After coming to the Academy, he earned his letter on the Plebe golf team, and later proved himself an able competitor on the company soccer and football teams. Weekends found Stan dragging his fiancee, whom he " ll marry shortly after the caps go in the air. Always calm and composed, " Housch " has a good, and usually humor- ous word for every occasion. Navy Line will obtain a fine officer as Stan, a Navy junior, will take to the fleet the fine qualities thdt made him everybody ' s respected friend at the Academy. STANLEY ROBERT HOLM. JR. 303 DENNIS PATRICK JAMES JOSEPH WILLIAM KIM DENNIS PATRICK JAMES Anchorage, Alaska Dennis Patrick James — or Pat, as most know him — - was one of the most Hkeable men of ' 66. He came to the muggy Mid-Atlantic from the cool northland of Anchor- age, Alaska. A.J. (as others knew him), left his television production activities at home to spend time at USNA managing the crew team and participating in company athletics; Pat ' s two major time consumers were the usual: academics and the blue trampoline, though his penchant for dragging good-looking women cannot be overlooked, either. Although more than once the Aca- demic Departments did battle with our hero Yukon (as still others knew him), he continually showed the " enemy " his ability to recoil and gain final victory. If Pat ' s eyes hold out. the Navy will be gaining a dedicated F-4 pilot; if not. the destroyer forces will gain a ledicated Destroy- erman. JOSEPH WILLIAM KIM III Irwin, Pennsylvania Bill started his college career by thumbing through a pile of scholarship offers. The bright Student Council Pres- sident settled on Crabtown. Bill arrived disguised as an average plebe, hiding an intellectual grab-bag under a distinctly civilian bearing. As plebe summer tore away at this veil, it also freed the contents of the secret sac. Subtle wit, blatant puns, academic stars and intent per- ception effused in endless numbers. Once freed, they ' joined forces with Bill ' s diverse and enthusiastic athletic abilities, his unique sort of individualism and a Penn- sylvania brand of courtesy to highlight an outstanding person. KIRBY EDMONDSON HUGHES II Birmingham, Alabama Skipper, hailing from Birmingham, Alabama, had aspi- rations of representing the Blue and Gold on the basket- ball court. However, his talents were diverted into the chemistry lab. Even though Skip had more enthusiasm for his guitar and weekends, he consistently came up with high grades. With his guitar he developed his taste for folk music. With his weekends he relieved the tensions of the week. His dynamic personality and ever present smile will brighten up any dull moment he may find in Naval Aviation. 304 THIRD BATTALION THIRTEENTH COMPANY ' ' 1 KIRBY EDMONDSON HUGHES JEROME BARRY LANSE JEROME BARRY LANGE Gre enwood, Wisconsin Jerry left the peace and quiet of a Greenwood, Wis- consin dairy farm to join our class at USNA and dis- played his ability to excel from the moment he arrived. He was active in sports, exhibiting a strong desire for competition. Known throughout his class for his good nature, Jerry was always willing to help his classmates in any way he could. He always found time for his favorite pastimes: Saturday night movies. Submarine sandwiches, and a quiet walk through Annapolis. Upon graduation, Jerry hopes to see the world through the eyes of Naval Aviation. Twenty years with Uncle Sam is Jerry ' s goal, and one can be sure he will serve well. JOH ' HARVEY LING Toledo, Ohio Although no observant person could tell from his talk of the " Buckeyes, " the Big Ten. and the Midwest, John came to the Academy from Toledo, Ohio. His active high school years were busy as John excelled in athletics and student activities. John didn ' t stop there but went ahead full steam actively participating in company sports and leadership, constantly working hard to get the most from his studies. John will always be remembered for his good- natured attitude towards the Academy and his ability to never rest on his laurels. Whether it be hearty good- natured fun, a practical joke on his roommates, or just good honest work, John is sure to have his hand in the midst of it doing an outstanding job. The soldiers of the sea ar-e certain to obtain a dedicated officer and leader when John turns in his middy blues for the Marine Corps Green. JOHN HARVEY LING 305 THIRD BATTALION THIRTEENTH COMPANY JOHN DOUGLAS LYNCH RICHARD LAWRENCE MARTENS JOHN DOUGLAS LYNCH Lubbock, Texas Doug came to USNA from Texas Tech via the U. S. Navy — with the full cooperation of Texas Tech. An old Napster, Doug ' s interest in the Navy is acquiring a set of gold wings. Not particularly devoted to academics, Doug -is remembered more for his spirit and fire on the sports field than his time with the books. A thought- ful person. Doug ' s concern for his classmates was an evident trait. Well liked. Doug has a sense of humor and carefree manner that cover a marked capability for handling people and tasks assigned. With four years behind him, Doug looks forward to Naval Aviation — Best of luck and happy landings. Lynch. RICHARD LAWRENCE MARTENS Deiroii. Miclug;an Bright and bushy-tailed, Dick left a memory-filled year at the University of Michigan for a sojourn of four years upon the banks of the Severn. An avid pur suer of knowledge, he maintained stars easily. A competitive and aggressive spirit found expression upon the soccer and rugby fields, as well as over the course around Hospi- tal Point. Hailed as the shortest midshipman in the com- pany, Dick, nevertheless thought big— as he expressed it, " small in stature, but big in spirit. " Perhaps more descriptive would be, " the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak, " for Dick certainly never neglected the finer aspects of life— the tender sex. Much to his roommates ' chagrin, a stack of letters from his " O.A.O. ' s " perpetually awaited his attention. Dick aims for the Judge Advocate General ' s Corps and with his customary drive Jind perseverance, is certain to attain that goal. 306 DENNIS A. PETERSON Layton, Utah Although he now calls Layton. Utah, hi? home. Pete has lived in a variety of interesting places, including one year in Italy and two in Germany. After spending a year at Weber College in Utah, and sixteen months in the Marine Corps, he arrived at U.S.N. A. with a wealth of education and practical experience already behind him. Since then his activities and interests have become even more varied, and depending on the season, you may find him rowing varsity crew, diving with the Scuba Club, acting in the Masqueraders ' production, or going on Foreign Relations trips. His quick wit, winning smile, and determined outlook have already made Pete many friends, and his drive, ability, and dedication will serve him and his country well when he again dons Marine sreen. DENNIS ALLAN RIGSTAD Dululh. Minnesota In coming to the Academy, Denny, a snowman from northern Minnesota, fulfilled a longtime ambition. At first, his bouts with the Academic Departments met with little success. With determination and much weekend study, his tactics improved as did his grades until he consistently had high marks. Denny also actively partici- pated in Varsity Baseball as a manager and was known for his always present smile given him by the team. Though Academics and sports as well as the Public Re- lations Club were important to him, he managed to re- main active in NACA, OCU, and Sunday School. Denny ' s enthusiasm for the Navy and never-ending quest for knowledge will make him a welcome member of Admiral Rickover ' s happy crew. DENNIS A. PETERSON DENNIS ALLAN RIGSTAD 307 LAWRENCE " L " STEWART PAUL FARRELL STRAIN JOHN RALPH THOMPSON LAWRENCE " L " STEWART Louisville, Kentucky A southern gentleman of the first order, Larry possesses all the attributes of a mellow aristocracy: dignity, honor, loyalty, humour, and pretty girls! " Hey, Larry, I under- stand you ' re dating a beautiful girl from the University of Maryland this weekend. How ' bout giving me her name and phone number? " Thus launched out the door by the familiar cry of his classmates, Larry, a connoisseur of life ' s special graces, embarked upon a typical weekend. After spending an enjoyable year at the University of Louisville, Larry came to these sacred grounds where he quickly displayed his talent in crew, rugby, and academics. His exasperating sense of humour, his rapidly thinning blonde locks and his all around affa- bility will be definitely missed when Larry pins on either the oak leaf of the Supply Corps or the dolphins of the Submarine Service. PAUL FARRELL STRAIN Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania " Cheeks " or pedantic Paul, as he is affectionately known by his classmates, has continually taken a " strain " ever since he first stormed these hallowed grounds. A master Varsity debater and a rugby player during his tenure, Paul has been a veritable fountain of inspiration, intel- lectualisni, politics, and humour. " Be careful during your big debate today, Paul, we ' d hate to see you pull a muscle carrying all those big heavy books! " But perhaps his most outstanding features — those sources of ceaseless amazement — are the two bright rosy red spots that seem to be perpetually shining in Paul ' s cheeks. No stranger to the finer things in life (including aptitude and aca- demics) Paul should go far in his chosen field of law with the Judge Advocate General ' s Corps. JOHN RALPH THOMPSON Arlington, Virginia Straight from O ' Connell High, John ' s four years were never spent far from his home in Arlington, Virginia. Lonesome most of youngster year, his outlook brightened considerably when his OAO transferred to Dunbarton College from Texas. Aside from dragging, John took an avid interest in intramural sports — especially heavy weight football where he was a big man on the line. Never particularly enthused by studies, he displayed a marked ability to manhandle the Academic Departments from the conn of his Blue Trampoline. With Naval Aviation his goal, John ' s desire for his wings is not darkened by his four years of accomplished but insincere cynicism. Pos- sessed with a clear, sharp mind, John is an alert and capable person. A bright and promising career lies ahead — with possibly marriage and the " 0 " Club his only distraction from flying. JOHN FRANCIS WHALEN III New York Neiv York " Aw, c ' nion. Jack. Get up— it ' s reveille! " Thus began each new day for this son of the " Empire State. " Arriv- ing from The Hotchkiss School, he soon accepted the good life in Maryland. After a brief career as an oarsman and two years of basketball. Jack settled down to being a mainstay of the Company bask etball and cross country teams. Not caring much for the drudgery of academics, Jack preferred a life of wine, women, and song — a fervent devotee to good music and the blue trampoline, much trampled we might add. With his easy going acceptance of life, ready sense of humor, and gregarious personality, Jack can anticipate a well filled and rewarding future. Best of luck ! 308 THIRD BATTALION THIRTEENTH COMPANY JOHN FRANCIS WHALEN III JOHN FRANKLIN WILSON JOHN FRANKLIN WILSON Garden Grove. Calijornia John, a Navy junior calling Garden Grove, California, his home town, came to the Academy straight from high school. During plebe year, he excelled on the plebe basketball team, but discovered that the intramural sports program was better suited to his study and sleep schedule. Obviously enthused with academics, John could usually be found in the pad or playing bridge. John is most fam- ous for his self-confidence and his saying " I got to admit, guys, I am . . . . " Extremely enthused with travel be- cause of his trip to Europe second class summer, John has an undying interest in seeing the rest of the world. After graduation, John is looking forward to a success- ful career with the fleet. ROBERT RALPH WITTENBERG San Fernando, Calijornia Bob came to us as an Ail-American football player from Pierce Junior College near his native city, Los Angeles. Football has remained as one of his many out- standing contributions to the Naval Academy and he is one of two members of his class expected to win a third letter in this sport. In addition to being an outstanding athlete, he is one of the best liked and most respected members of the Brigade. Wlien elected Class Vice Presi- dent, he did much to help both his classmates and school. Grades have never bothered him even though much of his time has been spent on other activities. Away from school, he has the reputation for having a way with the opposite sex, which can only be admired by his fellow midshipmen. With his many outstanding qualities and great leadership potential, he is a " cinch " to make a good Naval aviator. ROBERT RALPH WIHENBERG 309 SECOND CLASSMEN Back Row: D. C. Lucas, K. P.

Alexandria, Virginia Rick, or " Barbs " as he was affectionately called by his enemies; came to us as a Navy junior; directly from high school, fie was always fulfilling his role as a " three-ring circus " by constantly keeping his classmates in laughs, and he was soon one of the most popular members of the class of ' 66. With all his shenanigans, Rick always found sufficient time for studies and extra- curricular activities. Rick begins his Naval career with great anticipation and is a sure bet for instant success. WILLIAM SIAU BARR Georgeloivn, South Carolina Willy hails from the relative warmth of South Carolina, a feature he always felt and could be heard loudly ex- pressing that old Annapolis lacked. Having already com- pleted one plebe year at The Citadel, he found no diffi- culty with his second here at the Academy. Academics always came easy to Bill, the arts being his weakness while he excelled in all forms of math. Having been ac- cepted into the Majois Program at the end of youngster year, he had to spend many long weekends keeping up on his studies. His athletic ability and spirit on the playing field were always a welcome sight to any team. Bill ' s love for the blue trampoline amazed many and he frequently only came to the surface to eat. Known and respected by his classmates for his quick wit and willingness to help, Bill will be remembered by all. His personality and drive have served him well and will insure his success in the years to come. 313 ROBERT JOSEPH BOSMAN RONALD LEE BUSCHBOM JEFFREY BLAIR FESLER ' HO ROBERT JOSEPH BOSMAN Clifton, New Jersey Bob, the " Clifton Comet, " descended upon the Naval Academy from Clifton, New Jersey, with stars in his eyes. Soon the stars were on his collar. Although faith- ful to his studies. Bob always found time for outside reading along the line of humanities. Bob used the same dedication and determination in athletics as he did on the books. His hustle wore down many a bigger opponent. Bob, altliough naturally quiet and unassuming, left no one safe from his witticisms and dry humor. Bob, always the level headed one in any crowd, can be depended upon for his high spirits. Nothing will keep Bob from succeeding on the outside in a like manner. RONALD LEE BUSCHBOM Miami, Florida Ron came to the Academy from Miami Edison, where he made High School Ail-American in football. He is well-known to the Brigade for his participation on the Varsity Football Team, but he is better known to his classmates for his good humor. It has often bfeen said that if you can ' t find Ron dragging or working out, you will find him entertaining his friends. Youngster cruise inspired Ron to a life in the Corps, Marine or Supply. In either case, Ron will be a fine officer. JEFFREY BLAIR FESLER Marysville, Pennsylvania Enroute to the Naval Academv from his hometown of Marysville, Pennsylvania, Jeff spent one year at the Pennsylvania State Ufiiversity. After spending his first year at the Academy on the plebe cross-country and track teams, he turned his attention to Company sports. In intramural competition, he was active in volleyball, basketball, and an outstanding runner on the cross-country team. In the field of academics, he was able to main- tain a Superintendent ' s List average with a minimum effort and was often found giving academic help to a classmate. Academically, his attention was focused on the Engineering Department and an engineering major. With his determined spirit and his engineering electives to aid him, Jeff should be able to fulfill his ambition and enter the CEC after graduation . ANTHONY MICHAEL FRANZITTA Brooklyn, Neiv York The " Italian fireplug " was noted for his quick wit and friendly personality. Never one to shy away from a good time, Tony was always the life of a party and was seldom without the company of an equally fun loving young lady. Tony had a serious side, too, and was one of the outstanding scholars of the company. Always high on the Superintendent ' s List and wearing stars to prove his excellence, Tony could be counted upon to help his slower classmates. His big sport at Navy was gymnastics and though he had little earlier experience, he proved a valuable addition to the varsity team. For most, his life would have been a back breaking grind, but he seemed to have time for everything, including time for one of his favorite activities — sleeping. Tony hasn ' t de- cided, yet, what service would benefit most from his bound- less energy, but whatever his choice, Tony is sure to be one of the top in his field. 314 THIRD BATTALION FOURTEENTH COMPANY mmi I ANTHONY MICHAEL FRANZITTA WILLIAM CHARLES HANCOCK ..Tiijifoiiitn m top to 3 iil Ins ainWli ' iiritanil ion to F ' ' " to 10 kelp te jriti WILLIAM CHARLES HANCOCK Minnetonka, Minnesota Coming to the Academy right out of high school in Minnetonka, Minnesota, Bill soon settled into the life at Navy. With a ready smile and friendly word, he quickly made many close friends. Not one to shirk hard work. Bill has spent many fruitful hours with the books. Although not one of the top few students, he has kept a respectable average and never had much worry when the finals rolled a round. Bill was an active member of Company sports squads such as lightweight football, softball. and cross-country: and although a knee injury slowed him down a little, Bill was still a valuable member of any team he was a part of. During second class summer at Pensacola. he decided he didn ' t have the stomach for the Flyboy ' s life. While Navy Line is famous for motion, too, Bill thinks he ' s better suited for this life. No matter what branch he enters, Bill will be sure to do an out- standing job. EUGENE ROY HARDMAN Minneapolis, Minnesota Geno came to the Academy after spending two years at New Mexico Military Institute, where he was twice a Junior College Ail-American in both football and base- ball. Once he got here, he continued where he left off by being elected captain of his undefeated plebe team. Since he was ineligible to compete in varsity sports his senior year, he left an outstanding record for the two years he did play. He was one of the finest inside line- backers ever to play at Navy, and he led the baseball team in numerous categories as a third-sacker. He chose to lend his basketball ability to the company, and led it to several Regimental and Brigade championships. A natural athlete and leader, he had his bouts with studies, EUGENE ROY HARDMAN but he never let them get the best of him, and he always ended up on top. He will long be remembered for his patented walk, his way with women, and the amity in which he held all his classmates. The Marine Coi-ps will receive an excellent officer when Gene graduates. 315 THIRD BATTALION FOURTEENTH COMPANY HARRY GENE HENDERSON CHRISTOPHER MICHAEL HOCH HARRY GENE HENDERSON Sislersville, West Virginia Sisterville, West Virginia, sent Harry to the Naval Academy straight out of high school. His easy going manner and humor enabled him to make friends quickly The morning after the night after Armyy V ' ainong his classmates. Although the Academic Depart- ments did not list Harry among their star students, he never let them get the best of him. His determination kept his grades high enough to find him around when the next semester started. When Harry was not working on grades, he could usually be found using the Academy ' s athletic facilities. He was a welcome addition to any of the Company sports squads. Among the sports he par- ticipated in were soccer, lightweight football, and soft- bail. He enjoyed spending his second class summer on the Plebe Detail. He also rated high on his list of likes de- stroyers, liberty, and girls, but not necessarily in that order. Harry is a dedicated Naval officer and will make a fine addition to the Fleet. CHRISTOPHER MICHAEL HOCH Denver, Colorado Coming to the Academy after a great high school career, not only in athletics, but in academic endeavors as well, Chris picked up right here right where he left off at Regis High School. Playing football and lacrosse have taken up a great deal of Chris ' time, but left enough for Chris to keep his average above 3.00. This is a great accomplishment for any person, and, for a mid- shipman, it is the mark of great individual effort. With ali this, Chris has still found the time to enjoy the finer points of our local area, which include the young ladies of Annapolis, Baltimore and Washington. Good times are never far away from where Chris decides to roam. With a love for the air, Chris hopes for a career in avia- tion. He has given part of himself to the Naval Academy, and, no matter what he decides to do after graduation, the service will benefit with his presence. i GEORGE WALTER IWASKO daik Depait- r (tadeiib, k miutioD kepi od vb llie ol woib ' tj on ie Ad enif 5 inJwiDuke Ci)l(i«i« ifffoil lie finer -11|«V I ,il«l iifii GEORGE WALTER IWASKO Rochester, New York FRANK BOYD KELLER George, a native of Rochester, New York, came to the shores of the Severn after spending a year at Bullis Prep School. A fine athlete, he displayed his prowess in Company fieldhall and Battalion football and is, no doubt, well remembered by those who competed against him. A fierce competitor in academics, he waged quite a few hard fought campaigns in this department, man- aging each time to prove that they couldn ' t keep a good man down. Wlien not studying, George could usually be found sailing on the bay or escorting some fair lass. Aviation summer convinced George where his future would lie. With his aggressive personality and his ability to get a job done well, George will be a welcome addition to the ranks of Navy Air. FRANK BOYD KELLER Johnstoum, Pennsylvania Boyd came to the Naval Academy straight from the hills of western Pennsylvania. He found life here quite dif- ferent from that of his high school days in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, but made a successful adjustment to life at the Academy. Boyd was best kno vn for his exploits on the Thompson Field and Field House tracks. He excelled in the 440 and mile-relay for six seasons, earning his first " N " during his youngster year. Boyd was also knowTi for his weekends at the Academy, for few passed without him escorting some lovely young lady to one of the events in the yard. Probably more than his exploits on the track, Boyd was knowi for the tremendous amoxmt of time spent in bed. He probably set an all time record for sleeping, for few free periods passed without finding him there. At present, Boyd is leaning towards a career in Navy Line, where he will certainly make a fine officer. 317 f DAVID JOSEPH KLINKHAMER STEPHEN TYSON LEUBECKER JAMES ALEXANDER LONG DAVID JOSEPH KLINKHAMER Tavares. Florida When Dave was a junior at Whittier High School in Whittier. California, he decided that the Nav - offered a career that was t o his liking. He joined the reserves, hoping to get into the NROTC program. Nearing the end of his senior year, he found himself, through a mix up in papers, in the big gray fleet as an enlisted man. This did not hinder him, and through hard work and good fore- sight, he ended up at the Naval Academy after three years. Dave will undoubtedly be of great service to his country through his great mind and constant wit. To many people, the most unforgettable person they know; he is a man THIRD BATTALION FOURTEENTH COMPANY who can come up with the wrong formula and the right answer every time. CEC or Supply Corps are his am- bitions after graduation and either will gain a fine of- ficer in Dave. STEPHEN TYSON LEUBECKER Baliimore, Maryland Steve, more commonly known as Lou, came to us here on the banks of the Severn from the banks of Charles Street just thirty minutes north in Baltimore. Leub ' s athletic abilities were put to good use on varsity rosters, as well as in intramurals, as he was a member of the varsity track squad. Academics always came easily for Steve where he gained his stars for a semester and the Superintendent ' s List for another. A fond lover of the blue trampoline, one could usually find Lou during his waking hours working out on it or studying the fine weave of his bedspread. An avid sports fan, we will always remember Lou at the games, warming up for the victory celebrations afterwards. Youngster Cruise con- vinced Steve that ships were not for him, and he leaned toward a career in the Marine Corps. His wit, personality, and winning smile will always be remembered and should follow him throughout his career. JAMES ALEXANDER LONG HI Catonsville, Maryland Jim, better known as Jace to his friends, hails from the friendly town of Catonsville just outside Baltimore. Liv- ing so close proved to be an advantage that found him home during leave periods before most of us even got to the airports. Squeak, as he was called by his team- mates on the lacrosse field, spent a year at NAPS prep- ping before coming to Navy to earn a position on the starting midfield of the National Championship team. Lacrosse was Jim ' s first love, but he never let the Aca- demic Departments get the best of him. Youngster year 318 found him being accepted into the majors program. An aspirant of Navy Air, Jim found second class summer and Pensacola to be a turning point in his life in more than one way. Jim ' s wit, drive and personality have won him the respect and friendship of many at the Academy, a trait that should insure him a very successful Navy career. WILLIAM HARVEY MASSICOT Phenix City, Alabama Bill came to the Naval Academy after a year at Marion Military Academy, which amply prepared him for plebe year and adjustment to Navy life.

In high school, " the Pear " was voted " All-City " in basketball and base- ball. Stepping further on, he attended Bullis Prep, where he was voted captain of the basketball and baseball teams. On June 27, 1962, Gene started his career as an officer, proving his worth once again on the courts and fields of Navy. A jack of all trades, " Chins " (which is only one of the affectionate names his classmates have tagged on him) wore stars during his second class year. Between athletics and academics. Gene always had time to enjoy the extra- curricular activities. He dances like a swan, drinks like a fish, and swims like a rock. After filling several brown paper bags second class summer.

With a great high school athletic career behind him, Rusty helped the 14th company football and basketball teams to impressive records. With a keen interest in aviation, Rusty hasn ' t decided whether he will try the Marine or Naval branch of flying. Whichever one he chooses, the service will benefit. CHAUNCEY DALE VENUTO O maha, Nebraska Dale came to the Naval Academy from Omaha, Ne- braska, with a wide background in athletics. He was a walking baseball record book; he continued to excel in intramurals, and his hustle on the athletic field was a constant inspiration to all. One truly could not say Dale agreed with the policies of the executive department dur- ing his four years at USNA; his humorous and care- free attitude made him a ' favorite of everyone he was as- sociated with. The fastest of plebes, he was known for running the upperclass. Dale spent most of his leisure time reading, sleeping or trying to impress the members of the opposite sex, but not necessarily in that order. Because of his pleasant nature, dedication and interest in others. Dale can truly look forward to a successful and rewarding career. 320 CHARLES EDWIN WATERMAN South Holland. Illinois Chuck, who came to us from " land-locked " South Hol- land. Illinois, adapted quickly to the Navy way of life. He readilv spread his name through the ranks of ' 66 bv means of his " attention worlds ' " during our plehe summer. A constant source of inspiration. Chuck always came through with a smile when the going got rough and a wise word of advice when we got too cocky. An outstanding tennis and squash player. Chuck fought hard and well in ath- letics as well as for all his beliefs. The Class of 1966 owes Chuck words of gratitude for doing a great job as chairman of our Ring and Crest Committee. WILLIAM CARLTON EVANS WOLFE Cherry Point. North Carolina Chick came to the Academy after one year at Duke University. His previous life as a service junior made him quite well-travelled, having lived in such places as Hawaii and the Dominican Republic. An ardent sailor, Chick was one of the best foredeck captains the " Royono " has ever seen. If you had a question on anything, from aviation to how to tie a bow tie. Chick usually knew the answer or found it out for you. He was always available for a game of football, soccer, bridge, or a round in the ring or on the mat and was a formidable opponent in all of them. On just about any given night, you could find Chick burning the midnight oil. Chick has his sights set on Marine Corps aviation and will no doubt be a fine of- ficer and excellent aviator.

Before coming to Navy, he attended New Mexico Military Institute where he was a standout in basketball. While at Navy, Bob was very popular with his class- mates, noted especially for his fast wit and humor. He was also active in Brigade activities, being a Brigade Activities Representative and a member of the " N " Club. Bob also distinguished himself in sports as a standout member on Navy ' s Lacrosse Squad. After graduation. Bob is thinking about Navy Line but has an eye on Naval Aviation. No matter what Bob de- cides, his classmates are sure he will be an outstanding officer. ROBERT GRANT BRICE Covington, Kentucky Bob came to USNA from Covington, Kentucky, after a year at the University of Kentucky. A sense of humor and friendly disposition helped him adjust to the military and make many friends among his classmates. When sports time came, he could be found putting on his Com- pany ' s colors for a variety of sports, including basketball. which seemed to bring some sort of a mania over him. His dreamy road through academic was a series of peaks and depressions, but contained no hard falls, and in the end, he stood well in his class. From his room could al- ways be heard the strains of his favorite Bluegrass music and although he spent many of his weekends burning late oil. when an overnight or leave came along, he could always be found setting out equipped with a smile and a pack of cigarettes. With his sense of humor and good disposition. Bob will always end up on his feet. after completing his secondary schooling in various West Coast high schools. Never held back by academics, he became an active participant in intramural sports where he excelled in soccer and softball. Needing a further out- let for his excess spirit, Frank took up varsity cheerlead- ing; however, it was rumored that his most agile efforts often occurred after the game. At to most midshipmen, liberty took a high priority in Frank ' s life, and he was never to be found wasting weekend time on studies. When the Executive Department attempted to change this attitude via restriction, he would counter by sharpening his bridge skills. Although still undecided, Frank is lean- ing strongly toward a career in Naval Aviation. No matter which way he turns, we are sure the Fleet will get a fine man.

Maryland. Com- ing straight out of Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, he validated a few courses and took many advanced courses at USNA. He was one of the last of the members of the ' " Terrible Tenth " company, but despite this, his grades soared. As a result Scott was continually on the Super- intendent ' s List and wore stars. Although he studied hard during the week, the weekends were reserved for other " pursuits. " He was a member of the French Club and the Foreign Relations Club. As for sports, Scott played fieldbrawl, varsity pad, cross country and was active in the Naval Academy Sailing Squadron, going on several Bermuda Races. His love of the sea inspired him to a major in Oceanography along with other majors in French and Weapons. Despite his tendency to kid the " gung-ho " boys, he was especially proud of his qualifi- cation as a Navy Scuba Diver. As for the future, Scott wants a lifetime career in the surface Navy saying, " The smaller the better. " With his enthusiasm, Scott will go far in this man ' s Navy. BURKE PROGRAM ROBERT MICHAEL HENZI Sikeslon, Missouri Mike was a prospective law student at Mizzou before Navy Blue and Gold drew him to Annapolis from Sikeston, Missouri. One of the last men to go through plebe year in the old " Terrible Tenth, " Mike moved up to the Fif- teenth Company at the end of youngster year. Though he enjoys the company of young ladies, Mike thinks he would like to remain a bachelor for awhile. But then . . . who knows? Mike definitely liked to wrestle and to run, to kick the ball on the soccer field and to fight for it in the fieldbrawl games. He also put in a season with the Naval Academy Sailing Squadron. Per- haps it was this which convinced Mike that he wanted to concentrate on a career in Nuclear Fast Attack Sub- marines. With this in mind, Mike bore down on his studies, going after a math major, taking humanities overloads here and there, and even winning the struggle for the stars. With his motivation and determination, this man from Missouri will go far in whatever branch of the service he chooses to enter. WAYNE EARL HICKS Somerville, New Jersey After twice winning the New Jersey state wrestling championships. Wayne left his beloved Somerville to wrestle for Navy. Emerging undefeated plebe year, he went on to win the Easterns as a youngster. Wayne ' s wrestling prowess was only exceeded by his intellectual ability. His amazingly quick mind and phenomenal power of concentration has enabled him to continually main- tain an above star average while logging more hours in bed than the Brigade ' s biggest loafer. Business is business with Wayne, but when he plays, he does just that. His search for the depth of life has led him into many an " 0 " club bar and many a young lady ' s heart. Wayne was a past master at anything from going over the wall to avoiding the detection of the icebox he kept in his room. Combining a hilarious sense of humor with a pro- found singlemindedness, Wayne ' s straightforward per- sonality has won him the friendship and respect of many. In the future, Wayne ' s plans are vaguely pointed in two directions. First, he hopes to make the 1968 Olympics, and then make his first million. Whatever his chosen groove, he will undoubtedly make a deep mark. ROGER B. HILL Phoenix, Arizona Rog came to the Academy after spending one year at Arizona State University, where he was known to his fraternity brothers as one who never let academics inter- fere with the pursuit of a happy and leisurely way of life. He nearly forfeited his reputation during plebe year when he qualified for the Superintendent ' s List, but with the ad- 326 THIRD BATTALION FIFTEENTH COMPANY ROGER E. HILL KENNETH LINCOLN HOFF vent of youngster year and his resultant discovery of the pleasures of his bed, he reverted to his normal self. When considering the love Rog had for the unconscious state, one is hard pressed to comprehend where he found the time to devote to company sports and Brigade boxing competition; but somehow he found the time and he al- ways succeeded in making his presence felt. Despite his adoration of the Great God of Sleep. Rog was able to ascribe a modicum of time to remaining on friendly terms with the Academic Departments. He had his more serious side. too. and he never failed to meet the rigid standards he set for himself. He commanded the respect of those around him; his quiet self-confidence and determination will enable him to carry this trait into the fleet and will make him an efficient and respected Naval officer. KENNETH LINCOLN HOFF Chicago, Illinois After spending four years at St. Ignatius High School in Chicago, Illinois, Ken entered the Academy with the determination to do well and well he did. The rigors of academic life always proved to be a challenge for Ken which he could never pass up. His various academic en- deavors brought him a major in English Literature and a very well rounded education. Although always on the Superintendent ' s List, Ken also found time for a great deal of athletics. While at the Academy Ken participated in almost every type of athletics from Battalion wrestling to Company football at which he was always a star per- former. Ken was the spark of any party and will always be remembered for his standard after the game remark " Belly Up Boys. " Nuclear Power looks promising for Ken now but the thrill of Naval Aviation may win him in the end. CHARLES ERIC JENKINS Rolling. Hills, California Eric, more commonly known as " Jenks, " brought his CHARLES ERIC JENKINS easygoing California manner to USNA after a two year interim from high school. Although he found Academy life quite different, his versatile personality and good sense of humor enabled him to adjust easily to his new environment. Being quite an outdoor man, Naval Academy athletics agreed well with Eric, and his athletic prowess gained him the respect of many an opponent. His spirit on and off the field was symbolic of his unfailing sports- manship. Perhaps his second love could be considered his guitar which not only provided him with entertainment, but also enabled him to steal the hearts of many young maidens. Jenks is a wonderful person to have as a friend. He is extremely loyal to what he believes and to whom he believes in. Eric is destined to be an asset to tlie service and his country. 327 GARY RICHARD KAMP CARL FRANCIS KAUFFMANN GARY RICHARD KAMP Grand Rapids, Michigan Gary was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he attended Catholic Central High School. He won his appointment to the Academy through the Navy after a year at NAPS. The Academic Departments were his major hurdles as a midshipman, however, concentration and hard work always seemed to bring him through each year. On the athletic fields, he was active on his company ' s volleyball, cross country, squash, football, and fieldball teams. On weekends, he could be found either catching up on some well earned sleep or dragging one of the female population. His quiet easy-going personality .stayed with him throughout his four years at the Acad- emy and made him well-liked by his classmates. After graduation, Gary is thinking about Naval Aviation, never- theless, whichever branch of the Naval Service he chooses, he will make a fine and dependable officer. CARL FRANCIS KAUFFiMAN Falls Church, lirginia A Navy junior, Carl now calls Falls Church his home. He came to the Academy after graduating from St. John ' s College High School and spending a year in the Naval Reserve. Experience in athletic training served him well as manager in plebe and Varsity cross country and track. He helped the team spirit with timely quotes and be- came an important member of the team. Although Carl was not an academic " slash, " an inquiring mind, which compelled him to analyze every situation thoroughly be- fore acting, enabled him to successfully run the academic gauntlet. This quality carried over to his studies, as he disliked " plugging formulae " without first understanding the concept. Carl plans on Navy Line after graduation where his desire for continual learning will prove in- valuable. " All right. let ' s have twenty good push ups. " m ROBERT MARTIN KEELEY JAMES EDWARD KOONS FRANK JOSEPH MARKOWSKI ROBERT jMARTIX KEELEY Santa Cruz, California Bob left his California home in 1959 to seek his for- tune in the Navy. Always interested in improving him- self, he attended NAPS after having become a Third Class Engineman. From this latter achievement Bob came to be popularly known as " Snipe. " Not being scientifically inclined, Snipe ' s happier academic hours were spent in E. H. G. classes. It was here that he was able to exercise his capable ability to express himself through his hobby of creative writing. However, Bob had other means of expressing himself — on the athletic field few men were as competitive and as determined. He was al- ways a valuable asset to Company soccer, football and Softball teams. While being extremely opposed to pettiness, Bob was conscientious and exerted noteworthy effort to do well any task that confronted him. Although Snipe ' s ambitions are directed toward a career in Naval Aviation, it is certain that whatever lies in his future will be met with determination and a desire to excel. FRANK JOSEPH MARKOWSKI Baltimore, Maryland Frank graduated from Baltimore ' s Southern High and attended NAPS before entering the Academy. Being a great all-around athlete, Frank was a member of two National Championship Teams at the Academy, soccer and lacrosse. He is always in the mood for Coney Island hotdogs and when on leave, you can usually find liini at the kitchen table. Having a keen scent for sharp clothes, Frank is usually at the men ' s shop when not eating or participating in athletics. After graduation, Frank would like Navy Line out of Hawaii. JAMES EDWARD KOONS Tulsa, Oklahoma After three successful years at Rogers High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he excelled in both track and academics, Jim was quick to make his presence felt on both plebe an4 Varsity track and cross country squads. Although never quite able to make the Superintendent ' s List, a keen, inquiring mind and a bent for math and science enabled him to compile a respectable academic record. An A-1 Army killer, Jim ran on cross country squads which scored three consecutive victories over the Cadets each season. Despite an interest in aviation, eye- sight qualifications will force him to serve as an officer of the line. An inclination for success in all of his en- deavors will make Jim a credit to the profession. THIRD BATTALION FIFTEENTH COMPANY 329 DAVID W. MATTIS THOMAS CLEVELAND RAGLAND THEODORE LEE RICE DAVID W. MATTIS Erie, Pennsylvania After one semester at Gannon College. Dave enlisted in the Navy. After Basic and a short time in the fleet, he reported to Naval Prep School and then finally arrived at Navy. As a member of the YP Squadron, Dave shows his prowess as a future line officer, but his heart is really set on Naval Aviation. Never an outstanding swimmer, Dave is sometimes referred to as the " rock. " Tliis nickname can also be used to indicate his disposition as a member of the Company fieldball team. Dave ' s good humor and his outstanding ability to understand and get along with others will make him a fine officer no matter what branch of the Navy he finally chooses. THOMAS CLEVELAND RAGLAND Richmond, Virginia Coming from Richmond, Virginia, Tom brought to us a lively personality that always kept things from get- ting dull. Certainly no stranger to Navy ways, Tom en- tered the Academy via NAPS and a year in the fleet where he spent his time gathering knowledge by at- tending ET and Submarine School. Always one for action, " Rags " could be found aiding the cause of Com- pany sports b ' his efforts on the football field. Not one to specialize though, Tom was equally at home on the lacrosse or soccer field. Also an academic " slash. " Tom had a habit of combining a modest start with a sizzling finish that earned him a place on the Superintendent ' s list plebe year and has since brought him consistent good grades. Always interested in people, Tom was also a member of the Foreign Relations Club. Lipon graduation Tom is thinking about a career in Naval Aviation. Wliat- ever his final choice will be, Tom ' s drive and determi- nation are sure to guarantee him a good measure of success. THEODORE LEE RICE Norfolk, Virginia Ted came to US A right nut of high school from Nor- folk, Virginia. A Navy junior he already knew a great deal about the Navy but had the usual problem of con- vincing the upperclass plebe year. Ted was an active particijjant in Company and Battalion sports. Rugby, cross-country and soccer became his favorites. Frequently on the Superintendent ' s List, academics were no prob- lem and his fluency in the Russian language should be of considerable help to him in his future career. His perpetual smile and easy-going manner made him well liked by all his classmates. Always a lady ' s man, Ted assumed the responsibilities of upperclass dragging with enthusiasm, as his pile of daily mail evidenced. A high degree of motivation and sense of duty will make him a fine officer who will be welcomed by the fleet. ROSS FREDERICK ROGERS III Redlands, California Rick graduated from Redlands High School in Cali- fornia in 1962 and entered USNA to follow the footsteps of his father in making the service a career. As a " high school Harry " , he found the rigors of plebe summer challenging and made the transformation to service life with the usual degree of difficulty. Athletically, Company soccer, cross country and volleyball were his standouts. In the realm of academic endeavor. Rick continually approached the Superintendent ' s List, but somehow never quite made it.

A Thespian in the true sense, he excelled in the theatrical productions at USNA. During the fall and spring, Gary could always be found on the water of the dear old Chesapeake Bay hard at his job of managing the varsity sailing team. A man who knew how to succeed where others had failed, Gary always won his battles with the Academic Departments, although a few times by a nose. Gary was known at our favorite school by his nicknames " Buggs " or " Nose. " A man who went out of his way to help another, Gary could always be counted on in a tight spot. His strong love of fine foods led to his room being nicknamed " Buggs ' Delicatessen " . Gary ' s love of the sea has given the Destroyer Force another outstanding officer to join its hallowed ranks. ROGER CORWIN SPAYDE Rocky River, Ohio Rog came to USNA from Rocky River, Ohio, where he was Student Body President, varsity athlete, and all around B.M.O.C. A good indication of his character is the ease with which he adapted to life as a plebe. He seemed to thrive on the rigorous discipline and academic challenge. While consistently maintaining a star average academically, his diversified interests and seemingly un- limited talents found him engaged in much more than his tough academic schedule. " Ace " was noted as an ac- complished drummer, guitar player, and teller of tall stories about his European travels. As an efficient or- ganizer and leader, he made many contributions to the company, and as an athlete, he earned his numerals on ROGER CORWIN SPAYDE several Brigade championship teams. He was respected and well liked for his helpful nature and positive attitude. Rog is destined to be an asset to the Navy in the service of his country. 331 THIRD BATTALION FIFTEENTH COMPANY JACK FROTHINGHAM STINNEH ROBERT EDWARD TITCOMB JACK FROTHINGHAM STINNETT U ' inclicslcr. ) iriiinia Jack hails from Winchester, Virginia, and came to USNA after four outstanding years at Handley High. His keenest interests lie in the field of sports, where his drive and determination made him an asset in every field of competition. Jack is recognized by his moves both on and off the playing field. While at the Academy he showed his considerable aptitude for academics, and stood consistently above average in grades. With a holy curi- osity to back his efforts, he had no trouble in attaining his major in history. Liberty, a subject dear to all hearts, was a religion with Jack, and during his off time he could always be found at the center of the happenings. His easy- going humor coupled with his determination and drive are qualities synonymous with success. ROBERT EDWARD TITCOMB Henry, Illinois After a career in Navy schools, which included NAPS, Bob became a member of the 4100. Since that late day in June, 1962 Bob has had two loves, one to enjoy life and the other to keep just out of reach of the academic board. In order to fulfill his first love he has taken an active part in such organizations as the French Club and Foreign Relations Club. Being an avid sports fan he took full advantage of the USNA sports program. As a plebe he was out on the river in a shell trying to beat the tide for the plebe crew team. Then Bob turned to the company sports where he became a standout on the Brigade Cham- pionship Batt Crew, handball team and the fieldball mob. Hailing from Henry, Illinois, Bob ' s first Navy love was submarines but he has been converted to Naval Aviation all the way. The Doctors tried to foil his plans but the N.F.O. program will receive an outstanding officer in June of 1966. 332 MARVIN HENRY TCCKER Steubenville, Ohio Man- came to Na ' ) ' from SteubenviDe. by way of NAPS.

Marv has been kept busy by these, as well as by his heavy academic load. A nuclear engineering major, he hopes to someday join the ranks of Admiral Rickover ' s " elite, " somewhere on station in the vast ocean. A subtle sense of humor and his scrapping fieldball play- ing go together to make him one of the team ' s more valuable members. Ready to help whenever he can, he is a valuable asset to the Company and the Navy. BL ' FORD BRUMMIT WILEY JR. Sand Springs, Oklahoma The budding flower of the Sand Springs. Oklahoma, High School wrestling team was plucked by Navy and brought East. A year at NAPS seasoned Bo — both on the mats and in the classroom. His lean form was the last to be seen coming back to Mother Bancroft from wrestling practice every night. Bo was one of the " Daily Double " winners. His payoff consisted of three years of rewarding varsity competition combined with a creditable academic performance. The true test of a dynamic personality is its ability to unwind, and here Bo found outlets in popular music and the mastering of all the modern dancesteps. He cannot help but continue down his path of success after graduation as a member of the air arm of the Marine Corps. MARVIN HENRY TUCKER BUFORD BRUMMIT WILEY JR. 333 SECOND CLASSMEN Back Row; J. S.

LEO JAMES MICHAEL BAIRD Tacoma, Washington Mike came to the Naval Academy from Tacoma. Wash- ington, and was therefore, well adjusted to the Naval Academy winters. His innate ability to have fun helped him through the rigors of plebe year. Frequent uphill bat- tles with the Academic Departments did not dampen Mike ' s spirit, because he always managed to come out on top. Plebe year found Mike spending much of his time on the gym team. His eagerness and aggressiveness made him a strong competitor on many company athletics teams. Mike displayed an avid love and knowledge of music, and his tastes were unlimited, including classical, folk, and jazz, as well as top ten. He became known for his independent personality, smart personal appearance, and interest in being physically fit. Second class summer left a lasting impressio n on Mike ' s life as he plans an active career in Naval Aviation. WILLIAM BRADFORD BIRKMAIER JR. North Reading. Massachusetts Bill came to the Naval Academy from North Reading High School located outside of Boston. Massachusetts. Bill has consistently been named to the Superintendent ' s List since he was a fourth classman. His main academic interests have been in the fields of chemistry and ocean- ography. He majored in both subjects. Intramural sports have taken up much of Bill ' s time. His main interest is squash, and he has been an active member of the company and battalion squash teams. It was rare to find him in Bancroft Hall on a Saturday night. He will long be re- membered for his constant grin and " unique " sense of humor. Bill discovered the joys of being airborne in Pensa- cola during second class summer, and he is now striving for a career in the NAO program. Howeve r, Bill will be a welcome addition to whatever branch of the service he ultimately decides to enter. WALTER CARROLL BLEKICKI WALTER CARROLL BLEKICKI Reading, Pennsylvania Skip came to the Naval Academy via Bullis Prep and Brown University. With him, he brought a friendly smile and a personality that has won him many friends throughout the Brigade. Although academic excellence has managed to elude him. Skip has shown the kind of determination and initiative it takes to come out on top. His athletic experience has proved a great asset to his company teams every year, be it football, soccer, or soft- ball. His previous experience in the Naval Reserve also proved to be a great asset to everyone during Plebe Sum- mer as he displayed the kind of leadership that all men look for in their CO. A successful career in the Navy seems inevitable to such a person. THIRD BATTALION SEVENTEENTH COMPANY 349 CECIL ARCHIBALD KAPIUALOHA BOYD, II MANFRED NEIL BROSEE ROBERT FRANCIS COLLINS CECIL ARCHIBALD KAPILIALOHA BOYD, II Honolulu, Hatvaii Cecil came to us from the pineapple " fields " of our fiftieth state. Though he received much kidding about the " Kapilialoha " , he was still very proud of Hawaii and was always glad to return there as much as possible. He has a sense of humor that left us stunned at first, then gradually became contagious. It is enough to say that Kamehamea prepared him well, for he adapted to the grind of plebe summer like a pro. His grades were ex- cellent from the first, yet he was never far from his bed and could be found there most anytime from reveille on. He seemed to have had an innate ability to absorb his academics by pondering them while asleep. He did study his aero though, for he found it the most interesting and applicable, as Naval Aviation is his interest. If other branches don ' t grab him (and they will surely try), he will wind up a prominent member of the " Pensacola Flying Corps " someday. With his ability to get along well with others and to get the job done, he should make a truly fine Naval officer, as he is a natural in everything he at- tempts. If wit, mental ability and a desire for the best are the keys of success, then Cecil surely has a ring full. MANFRED NEIL BROSEE Cincinnati, Ohio Neil jumped right into the Academy life from Marie- mont High School, counting the days until Christmas leave and home again. His jovial manner and quick wit easily won him many friends and made him a welcome member of the " thinking twelve " . Sleeping ran a close second to letter writing for this quiet mid from Cin- cinnati. Known by his teammates as the " fattest high hurdler in the world " , he went on to devote his spare time almost entirely to improving his Naval background. Despite extracurricular duties which interfered with his classroom work, Neil was able to maintain the academic average for his stars. His consistent attendance at Church and his daily devout life have been an example to all of his shipmates. His ability 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. ROBERT FRANCIS COLLINS Park Ridge, Illinois Bob comes from the upper midwest, and hopes some- day to settle down in the pine laden regions of Min- nesota. His first two years of high school were spent .at Cretin in St. Paul, where he earned letters in football, baseball and hockey. Following a move to a Chicago suburb, he attended St. George High School where he continued his athletic prowess. Since coming to the Academy, Bob has concentrated his athletic efforts to plebe, J.V. and Battalion football with just enough Com- pany fieldball thrown in to get exercise during the long winter months. Academics never proved to be much of a problem and he was constantly found on the Superintend- ent ' s List. Never one to turn down a good time. Bob could often be found dragging Maryland ' s finest. Nu- clear Power School is his present aspiration, but with his well-rounded personality and versatility, Bob will make a welcome addition to any branch of the service. MICHAEL EUGENE CUDDINGTON Baltimore, Maryland Mike came to the Naval Academy after three years in the Marine Corps. As an enlisted man he was a dedicated navigator aboard the " flying Boxcars " . At the Academy Mike ' s desire to excel came to the fore and led to out- standing achievements in all his endeavors. Academically Mike worked hard for his Superintendent ' s List grades and was the man to see for help in the math, engineering and science courses. Being somewhat of a perfectionist he worked extra hours on the athletic field and was a welcome addition to his company ' s teams. Highly re- spected by his classmates, Mike was always one of the finest leaders. His dedication to the Marine Corps and his natural miUtary ability will lead him into a highly successful career. PATRICK JOSEPH DENNIS Grand Rapids, Michigan Hailing straight from the heart of " God ' s Country, " Grand Rapids, Michigan, Pat comes from a large family 350 THIRD BATTALION SEVENTEENTH COMPANY MICHAEL EUGENE CUDDINGTON PATRICK JOSEPH DENNIS •tit jpati and is one of three sons to choose a military career. Upon graduation from Grand Rapids Catholic Central High School, he attended Grand Rapids Junior College and NAPS. Throughout high school and prep school ' " Dens ' excelled in athletics and, since coming to the Academy, has been active in both football and lacrosse. His easygoing personality, keen sense of humor, and way with members of the opposite sex have paved the way for a memorable four years at the Academy but have made the academic road a rough one. However, despite finding studies difficult, Pat always worked hard, found time to acquire many close friends and proved himself a real credit to the Brigade. High on his list of interests are snow skiing, surfing, dancing, enjoying popular music, reading, especially in the field of current events, and all sports. Pat hopes that his future years in the Naval service will eventually lead him into the field of politics or foreign service. HUBERT " G. " DORSETT Neiv Iberia, Louisiana Enlisting in the Navy after a year at Texas Tech, Hubie was selected as honor man at boot camp and later received his appointment to the Naval Academy after a year at NAPS. Plpbe and youngster year found Hubie saluting Tecumseh with pious reverence at exam time, but second class year showed a vast improvement in his academics. Aside from dragging and running cross country, his all time favorite sport was working out on the blue trampoline on which he spent many carefree hours perfecting his famous horizontal lie-down position. His wide range of interests varied from world crises and trends to Dick Tracy, from hillbilly music to Madam Butterjly, from Naval Academy football to the Scottish curling championships, and from War and Peace to Lady Chatterly ' s Lover. Hubie had the rare talent of getting along well with everyone and could always be counted on for a friendly, insulting greeting anywhere or anytime. His ability to do a job well, his love for the Navy, and his sense of humor will help him to pur- sue a successful and rewarding career. HUBERT " G. " DORSEH THOMAS LESLIE GIBSON Schenectady, Neiv Yorh A top student and athlete from Schenectady, New York, Tom was one of those select few to mix good times and academics; always managing to do well in both. Tom soon became known as one never to turn down a chal- lenge, which he would attack with a keen mind and atti- tude. Attesting to his strong desire to learn were his high academic average and class standing. Tom ' s " never say die " philosophy prevailed on the athletic field, as he was oft seen bringing in the victory laurels for the com- pany. " Hoot " still found time to devote towards extra- curricular activities such as the Catholic Choir and Glee Club. A quick mind and well rounded personality will indeed be an asset to Tom as he heads towards those Winois of Gold. 351 THIRD BATTALION SEVENTEENTH COMPANY THOMAS LESLIE GIBSON ROBERT PEARSON GILL PETER ARTHUR GINSBURG ROBERT PEARSON GILL Teaneck, New Jersey After leaving Teaneck High in 1960, Bob attended the University of Maine for two years as a Forestry and Wild Life Management major. In the Spring of ' 62, R.P. came out of the woods and found himself at good old USNA. His plebe summer was spent in the usual hurried manner, but these tiring days soon passed, and R.P. was on to more important things. Early in plebe year, he became the beacon of the Twelfth Company with his glowing smile. In addition to this position, he was the source of attention and amuse- ment of many ear fUcking upperclassmen. The comple- tion of plebe year brought him distinction in the form of a new chow calling endurance record of 259 consecu- tive days. As for all midshipmen, R.P. spent his last three years in a slightly different manner than plebe year. He spent most of his working time concentrating on getting a Math major, enslaving the IBM 1620 computer, and becoming the source of information on electronic equipment. When not doing this, he wrote letters or played squash. After graduation Bob wants a large family and a career in aviation. PETER ARTHUR GINSBURG Orinda, Cahjornia Although a native of Orinda, California, Gins came to the hallowed halls of USNA via Oregon State. Plebe year found Pete reaping the fruits of his astounding sports knowledge. This knowledge became the plague of the plebe classes that followed, as he knew it all. Pete ' s college experience was put to full use during his four years here in maintaining good grades with the least effort. Never one to turn down a friend. Gins was kept up to date in academics by solving others ' academic problems, always showing extreme patience and under- standing to the dimwit who asked him for help. While sports occupied most of his free time, still his weakness to those ever present somniferous forces generally caused him to succumb. With his caustic sense of humor and wry wit, no situation, no matter how grave, slipped by without a choice comment. Gins has one of those rare qualities of being able to know the right thing to do at the right time, and this, coupled with his ability to make friends and influence people, should lead him through a fruitful Naval career. GEORGE THOMAS GORYANEC HI Youn slonm, Ohio Hailing from Youngstown, Ohio, George is proud of his steel making background. With a desire to become an officer in the LISN, he made it finally to the whitewashed walls of Crabtown via a very successful year of pre-med at Youngstown University. Plebe year found George shocked but he succeeded in making it to youngster cruise. Upon leaving the friendly confines of LISNA for that annual leave or occasional weekend, George was famous for his unusual escapades and in four years with the Navy has cut a wide swath along the Atlantic coast. From Montreal to Florida or Europe to the West Coast, our classmate has left us many sparkling memories of 352 GEORGE THOM AS GORYANEC III WILLIAM DAVID GRIFFITH JOHN ROLLAND HASTREITER liberty well spent. After slyly easing through youngster year academics, he renewed his love of aviation with the " Pensacola Flying Corps " . Studies did not come easily but he was sure he would make ' " Supt ' s. List " at least once and always intended to achie% ' e that goal " the next semester. " He was a dedicated athlete and every after- noon would find him working out at one sport or an- other but mainly the " one. " An ardent conversationalist he could be found at the heart of the after hours debates and bull sessions. His affable personality along .with his ever present grin and greeting won him many long lasting friends throughout the Brigade. George will be a welcome addition to any unit of the Naval service as he has the desire and the ability to be a fine Naval officer. WILLIAM DAVID GRIFFITH Miami, Florida Having come from sunny Miami, Bill had trouble ad- justing to the winter cold on the banks of Annapolis. But this was about the extent of his adjustment problems. Through plebe year Bill carried himself with the poise and confidence of a determined man and thus did well. Academically, there was no stopping him. As a regular on the Superintendent ' s List and frequently the Dean ' s List, Bill was respected by his classmates. He was always one with the " gouge " , and was always more than willing to help if possible. His wry sense of humor won him many friends and he could always be counted upon to cheer even the most morbid assembly. Bill was an accom- plished musician as seen by his participation in the Chapel Choir and Glee Club. He frequently demonstrated his versatility with the trombone, especiaUy on youngster cruise. Speaking of cruise. Bill will be remembered for his various and " unusual " experiences while on summer cruises. In extracurricular activities he never won fame, due to his innate ability to lose at cards. Though he played well at other sports, cross country, of which he was . an involuntan, regular, was a sore spot in his life. His willingness to help coupled with his friendly disposition should carry him far in life. His organizational ability and tenacity will lead him through a fruitful Naval career. JOHN ROLLAND HASTREITER Cownado, California Jack, an old Navy Junior hailing from Coronado, DAVID PETER HIMCHAK California, who is better known to his friends as " Street- er " , eventually entered the Academy after exceOing in academics during two years of college. During this period he had always entertained the thought of coming to USNA, which he unsuccessfully tried after spending a year ' s active duty in the fleet. But " never say die Streets " finally made the " big time " , where his interests have varied from lacrosse all year around at the Academy, to surfing and snow skiing, two of his favorite California pastimes. Streeter ' s outgoing personality and weakness for a pretty face have always found him in the center of any of the good parties that have been produced by that great social institution of which he is a member. Aca- demically howe ' er, his grades have not been up to par, but as Streets has that driving force indicative of all Germans, he will eventually succeed in whatever he tries. Streets hopes to enter flight school after graduation in an attempt to fulfill a life-long goal. 353 THIRD BATTALION SEVENTEENTH COMPANY CHARLES MICHAEL JESSICO DAVID PETER HIMCHAK Newark, New Jersey After a year at Newark College of Engineering, the Himmer decided to follow his brother Bill to the shores of the Severn. Once here, he immediately set about mak- ing a name for himself both in academics and on the track. Fate struck Dave however, in the fall of youngster year when he broke his leg playing Company football. The next eight montlis found him a resident of the hospital where undaunted, he maintained his grades and never lost his spirit. Although serious minded, Dave is noted for his quick smile and witty comments. His biggest problem at USNA came during his swimming tests which caused him to spend much of his free time working out in the pool. Dave ' s excellent bearing, strong sense of purpose and amiable personality will surely help him to gain even more success in the fleet than he did at the Academy. CHARLES MICHAEL JESSICO Duluth, Minnesota After a year of engineering at St. Thomas College in St. Paul, Minnesota, Jess realized a childhood dream and entered into the rigors of plebe summer. Plebe year saw Jess blossom forth with his yodeling that startled many an upperclassman at his door at 0615 for his " All turned out! " Successfully Surviving his greatest academic ene- my, German, in the first two years, Jess went on to easily wade through the remaining two years ' academics. This confirmed bachelor loves any and all sports and does well in most of them. Bound and determined to become a millionaire, he watches the stock market with an eagle eye and simultaneously watches his income soar. Displaying an intricate knowledge of missiles and one of those rare lovers of the Weapons Department ' s courses, as well as women, Jess is headed for destroyers after gradu- ation. After driving away in his car complete with tape recorder, Jess will be a fine addition to Navy Line. " Don ' t look now Henry, but there ' s a Lucky Bag photographer over there.

ROBERT LUCIUS JORDAN Norfolk, Virginia Upon graduation from Norfolk Academy, Rob came to USNA on a Naval Reserve appointment. After playing soccer for two years he felt that his athletic ability could be put to a better advantage by playing Company sports. Not one to waste his time, Rob was a member of the Brigade Activities Club, the Lucky Bag, and as well was an angelic voice in the Protestant Choir. Academically he was definitely not a math wizard but he had no trouble mastering the arts courses that he took to receive his major. His most trying experience at Navy was felt in the Dilbert dunker during second class sunmier. Rob ' s military bearing, pleasant personality and imique sense of humor will carry him far when he joins the fleet. SAMUEL ANKENEY LINCOLN, III Alton, loiva Lines came to the Naval Academy after a year at Iowa State University. It was there that he started his collegiate basketball career, playing on the freshman team. Here, he played for the plebes, but he soon gave up basketball to devote more time to studies, devising schemes to beat the system, and dragging every weekend. Extracurricular activities often took much of his time but he also man- aged to find time to have a little fun. At times his academic future looked rather bleak but he always man- aged to come through when it was needed. One of Sam ' s favorite pastimes was traveling, which occupied much of his time during every leave period. Never without a joke or story, he was successful in keeping his closest friends laughing throughout the four long years. Lines ' easygoing manner, ever present smile, and varied interests helped to make him one of the most popular members of his class. JOHN D. McKENDRICK Richmond, Virginia John was destined for a Naval career before he decided to come to the Academy. Junior ROTC at Thomas Jefferson High School in Richmond, Virginia, and a year of ROTC at Virginia Tech prepared him well for the rigors of Naval Academy life. His tendency toward that which is philosophical earned for him the nickname " Pluto " . John ' s uphill struggles with the Engineering, Math and Science departments led him to settle on a Political Science major in the English, History and Gov- ernment Department. Active in Russian Club circles, one could sometimes hear John interjecting a terse Russian phrase into his daily conversation. Weekends would al- ways find him away from studies, relaxing at home in Richmond. An avid believer in the development of the body as well as the mind, John displayed great enthusiasm for Company and Battalion sports. After graduation John plans an active career in aviation or foreign service. PATRICK MICHAEL MULDOON St. Albans, Vermont Everybody ' s friend, this smiling hunk of Ireland ' s fin- est hails from Suitland, Maryland, but prefers St. Albans, Vermont, to be called his hometown. An outstanding foot- ball player in high school, Pat showed his ability with the Battalion- team in the fall, then with the rugby play- ers in the winter; that is, if the subsquad didn ' t nab him first. Academics provided a challenge but not an obstacle to Pat, and through his persistent determination and en- thusiastic attitude in all facets of Academy life, he has always met with success. His outgoing personality and great sense of humor have earned him countless friends during his years at USNA. Never one to turn down a good time, Pat always had the way with the women during his weekend liberty jaunts. An Air Force junior, Pat hopes to stay on the ground with the U.S. Marine Corps upon graduation, where his determination and dedication to the service will insure a long and successful career. 355 THOMAS J. PORTER ANTONIO J. RODRIGUEZ RICHARD CHARLES SALMON THOiVIAS J. PORTER Alma, Michip,an Tom came to the Naval Academy after four successful years in academic and athletics at Alma High School. He was a three sport letter-winner and salutatorian of his graduating class. Upon arriving on the Annapolis scene Tom found his new regimented life quite perplexing. Despite his initial surprise with his new environment he was able to adjust almost immediately because of his easy going personality, intellectual ability, and super sense of humor. With the termination of each academic year Tom ' s natural ability for learning placed him near the top of his class and he wore his stars with quiet regularity. " Pork Chops. " as he was commonly known, established himself on the athletic field as well. His most outstanding achieve- ments were on the intramural basketball courts. However, he was also a member of their football and softball teams. Away from the Academy he could be found on the Michi- gan ski slopes in the winter or on its waterways during the summer. Tom acquired many very close friends during his stay at the Academy. On the weekends he could be found with his surfing friends and their female companions, attending yard activities or enjoying town liberty. Tom ' s suppressed desire is that he will e ventually be able to become a member of the medical profession. Until that time, however, the Navy can be proud to have him as a member of their fighting force. ANTONIO J. RODRIGUEZ Melairie, Louisiana Toney entered the Naval Academy from Metairie, Lou- isiana, a suburb of New Orleans. He completed twelve years at Metairie Park Country Day School, which may not sound impressive but has the distinction of sending every male graduate in its thirty-six year history to college. Toney has continued to improve his academic standing since plebe year, often appearing on the Super- intendent ' s List on the way toward majors in both French and Naval Managernent. Although a three letter man in high school, Toney ' s small stature turned his interests to two new sports at the Academy, Battalion tennis and Company fieldball. One weekends Toney enjoys fast cars, moving music, and southern belles. Usually possessing a quiet, pleasant personality, he does not hesitate to express an opinion when called to do so. He is well remembered for his impromptu solo rendition of " Ave Maria " in chapel dur- ing third class year. When not studying or dating, Toney dreams of the day that he will earn his aviator ' s wings and return to the South. If he decides not to fly, the other branches of the service wUl surely benefit from their acquisition. RICHARD CHARLES SALMON Pitman, New Jersey Dick hails from Pitman, New Jersey. Just before finish- ing boot camp at Great Lakes he was sent to NAPS, where he developed a keen interest in lacrosse. With only his experience at NAPS he played midfield on the unde- feated plebe team. Youngster year he won the coveted N Star by playing midfield on the National Champion- ship team. A valuable member of the lacrosse team and the Brigade, Dick was a quiet man who got along with everybody. He never shook up the Academic Departments, but on the lacrosse and Company football field, he was always a threat. For Dick the very distant future is a picture of a small dairy fann in the midwest. A hard worker with plenty of push, the Navy is getting one of the best. HENRY WILSON STRICKLAND Jesiip, Georgia Jesup, Georgia, has every right to be proud of its contribution to the class of ' 66. Hank ' s varied interests 356 ' ARuSSAlMOIt THIRD BATTALION SEVENTEENTH COMPANY made him an indispensable asset to the company. His presence on the Company cross-country and fieldball teams assured them of many of their victories. Academics was another of Hank ' s strong -points. His penchant for learn- ing and his diligent application kept him continually among the leaders of academic life here at the Academy as was evidenced by frequent appearance on the Super- intendent ' s List. A sense of humor and an understanding of people have been more than helpful in seeing him through these four years. The drive and tenacity he has exhibited while at the Academy leaves but one impression on the minds of his friends: that a rewarding and illustri- ous career awaits Hank in the Naval Service. CHARLES FRANK VOTAVA. HI Benvyn, Illinois Charlie came to the Academy from Berwyn, Illinois, with a reserve appointment. His interest in the Navy had developed during the year and a half that he served as a reserve submariner while attending Morton Junior Col- lege. After coming to the Academy his interests became choir, NewTnan Club, and fencing. Without past experi- ence in that sport, he won plebe numerals, and a substan- tial position on the varsity fencing team. Being highly motivated toward a career of Naval Service is Charlie ' s best insurance for his future in the Navy. Plans for the very distant future include a home in the suburbs of Chicago, and a station wagon to take the entire family to church. The combination of Charlie ' s devotion to the service and ability to organize should prove to be an asset to the Navy in the future. RONALD CHARLES WITT Evergreen Park, Illinois Ron hails from Evergreen Park, Illinois, a small suburb of Chicago. He came to the Academy straight from high school where he was contacted by a Navy football scout and given a chance to get an appointment. An injury RONALD CHARLES Win and subsequent operation plebe year prevented any fur- ther football activity, but Ron was still active in many sports such as wrestling and fieldball. Ron got into the engineering option program when it was first instituted and struggled through the extra courses to get his major in Naval Architecture. ViTiile not a constant member of the Superintendent ' s List, he did have his good semesters. Always ready to laugh at a good joke as well as make one, he managed to live up to his last name. Ron seemed to find many opportunities for having a good time while at USNA and never had a dull weekend. With his deter- mination to succeed, Ron should make an outstanding officer in whatever branch of the Navy he enters. 357 SECOND CLASSMEN Back Row.- J. J. Root, J. F. Junek, R. R. Brydges, R. B.

It was soon evident that he had come to stay. His ability to make friends was second only to his work on the rugby and fieldball teams. His efforts on the choir provided him with many experiences which he will treasure all his life. Over the years at Navy his spirit and interest gave him a cheerful outlook which helped to provide others with a measure of hapjjiness. His constant desire to improve himself gave everyone a deep respect for Scott. All of us are proud to call him our friend, and it is expected that he will have a very re- warding career in the United States Navy. JOSEPH PETER BERNIER Alexandria, Virpinia Early one morning on a dark day in late July of 1962, Pete made a short trip from his home in Alexandria, Virginia, to the place where the Severn joins the tide. Al- though planning to stay awhile, Pete was traveling light- ly, carrying only luggage and a remarkable set of fine qualities with him. It was not long after Pete put up his right hand that people began to discover that there was more than just another average fellow in their midst, for Pete soon displayed an astonishing amount of tenacity in fighting for what he believed was right, and to this the Academic Departments will readily attest. Academics found a ready participant in Pete, for al- though he does possess an extensive intellectual curiosity, his personal drive would not let him be content with mediocrity; as a result his name was seen on the Super- intendent ' s List. During those few hours when he wasn ' t busy chang- ing the Naval Academy around, Pete engaged in his next greatest love, sports. An enthusiast of basketball, cross-country, and crew, Pete participated on both the varsity and intramural levels, and derived both satisfac- tion and enjoyment from his efforts. Pete, still undecided as to what the future holds in store for him, ' will, by means of his remarkable per- sonality and immense personal drive, be assured of con- tinued success in life. EUGENE COURTNEY BURNHAM Orlando, Florida Gene came to the Academy after an early introduction to the military way of li fe, spending his three years of high school at Gordon Military College away from his Orlando, Florida, home. Academics did not prove to be a problem to him, as made apparent by his stars. A willing worker, he was an officer in the Baptist Student Union and participated in various activities of the French Club. The fall and spring would find him out on the bay with the Y.P. Squadron. Gene ' s persistence in getting a job done will make him a welcome addition to any branch of the Navy. THIRD BATTALION EIGHTEENTH COMPANY 361 I NICHOLAS JOHN CETTA MARDIS MALCOLM COERS JOHN BERNARD DOWNEY NICHOLAS JOHN CETTA Nutley, New Jersey Not having a history of Naval Service in his family, Nick set a precedent by desiring to attend the Academy. Hailing from Nutley, New Jersey, he still maintains he does not have a " Jersey " accent. During his four years, he played in Company fieldball, cross-country, and soft- ball. Studies and Nick mixed well and he could often be found hard at work on the weekends. Often quiet, he would rather let his actions speak for him. An avid supporter of Navy football, he never let a pep rally go by. He enjoyed the Annapolis formals most and the June Weeks were always great. His easy personality and quiet sincerity combined to win him many friends here and will no doubt spell success in whatever field he may choose. MARDIS MALCOLM COERS Speedivay, Indiana Mardy arrived at the Academy straight from Speedway High School. Once here he entered into all phases of Academy life. If not on the football field practicing with the 150 lb. football team, you could find him getting the Brigade ' s spirit up through his work in the BAC. His other interests varied from foreign relations to dancing to auto racing. Although never known for excessive studying, Mardy rarely had trouble with academics. His varied background and enthusiasm for almost any task assure him a successful career. JOHN BERNARD DOWNEY San Francisco, California The oldest of three children. Butch was born in No- vember, 1944. The Golden Gate city, San Francisco, Cali- fornia, is that faraway and often dreamed about place called " home. " Dutch ' s worries are few and he can usually be found wearing a smile and having a cheery greeting for all those around him. Butch is an avid sports fan in addition to being a pitcher for the Navy baseball team and if ever a mid- shipman second class were cherished by the fourth estate, it must be Butch. No professional question seems too dif- ficult or unusual for him to answer, especially in the field of sports. Butch ' s activities and interests go beyond the playing fields for he is an active member in the Portuguese Club. Amid the trials and temptations of a Midshipman ' s busy life, Butch still finds time to serve God and the church and attends Mass daily. Upon graduation, after four years filled with rich experiences and treasured memories. Butch plans to go to Pensacola, Florida, to continue serving the Navy and the country in Naval Aviation. THOMAS ROBERT FELGER Hartford City, Indiana Coming to the Academy from Hartford City, Indiana, Tom had little trouble adjusting to the ways of Navy life. He was a conscientious, hard worker, consistently being on the " Supt ' s. List " and always an asset to his intramural athletic teams. " Felg " , as his friends called him, always found time to help out a classmate, either in academics or with per- sonal problems, and his winning personality and easy- going farm boy ways made him one of the most popular men in the Brigade. Most of Tom ' s extracurricular talenls were devoted to an active participation in the Foreign Relations Club, 362 Q THIRD BATTALION EIGHTEENTH COMPANY THOMAS ROBERT FELGER HAROLD JAMES GILLOGLY, JR. where he enhanced his aheady active interest in other people and exciting places. Tom believes in doing things right, and if past per- formances are any indication, his future achievements Avill be unlimited. HAROLD JAMES GILLOGLY. JR. Hopewell Ohio Coming straight to the Academy from a small rural high school near his home in Hopewell, Ohio, Jim had to make a big adjustment not only to the plebe system but also to the academic program. After a slow start he gradually picked up speed and now is holding his own among the top quarter of his class academically. No varsity athlete, Jim enjoys the intramural competition, his specialties being squash and handball. His extracur- ricular activities are centered in religious groups and functions, some of those being: Naval Academy Christian Association, Officer ' s Christian Union, a Midshipmen prayer group, and various Bible study groups. Taking no academic overloads he may well be considered to be majoring in religion. .Although he has no definite future plans and is quite willing to go Navy Line if he feels so led, he is presently majoring in Nuclear Science so that should he desire to go nuclear power he will be qualified for such. RUSSELL DEAN HALE Holdemille, Oklahoma Rusty comes from HoldenvUle. Oklahoma. Straight out of high school. Russ found himself facing the most inter- esting and eventful four years of his early life. With a solid academic, social and athletic background, he mas- tered all phases of his Academy life: Superintendent ' s List, NAFAC, and Brigade fieldball championship, just RUSSELL DEAN HALE to mention a few. Not willing to settle for the daily rou- tine, Rusty constantly came up with the big plays that enabled him to become one of the most well-known members of the Brigade. Always in touch with his class- mates, the Executive Department, and members of the opposite sex. Rusty ' s achievements at the Naval Academy will always be remembered. As for Russ ' s future — - SUCCESS! 363 THIRD BATTALION EIGHTEENTH COMPANY CURTISS DEAN JOHNSON ANDREW WILLIAM HUNT, JR. ANDREW WILLIAM HUNT, JR. Houston, Texas A tall, friendly Texan, Andy entered directly from a high school in Houston. Never lacking enthusiasm, he plunged into Academy life with all the force that could be extracted from his six-foot three frame. Andy ' s natural geniality was at first set back with the hostility of plebe year, but not for long. They say. " you can ' t keep a good man down, " and Andy demonstrated his exceptional character in using his abilities to rise far above what was expected of him. Academically. Andy ' s grades were something always to be envied, but he did not let the matter rest there. Although he wasn ' t really an athlete, Andy attacked the subject of physical fitness with his usual vigor and de- termination and soon gained respect for his lean, mus- cular build and his stamina. Even though he participated in everything from boxing to football, Andy ' s real love was ocean sailing. He sj ent his most enjoyable hours cruising on the sunny Chesa- peake or pitting his abilities against the challenge of an angry sea in a howling gale. Andy is a person we are all proud to know. CURTISS DEAN JOHNSON Marysville, Washington Curt entered the Academy after graduating from Marysville High School in his home town, Marysville, Washington. In high school Curt achieved remarkable success in both athletics and academics. At the Academy he continued his record of achievements by earning aca- demic stars and participating in varsity wrestling, as well as Battalion sports. Curt ' s easygoing and friendly personality gained him a place in the hearts of his class- mates and friends. Curt, while carrying an additional load to major in Social Science, has found time for extra- curricular activities. For pleasure he enjoys mountain climbing, as well as the appreciation of fine music and art. With his steadfast determination in getting the job done. Curt will be an in ahialile asset in the service of his countrv. ei JAMES JOSEPH KELLEY JAMES JOSEPH KELLEY Kwgston, Pennsylvania Coming to Annapolis from Central Catholic High School in Kingston, Pennsylvania, immediately after graduation. Jim carried with him his good academic rec- ord while here at the Academy. Being an avid sports fan, he also enjoyed participating in and watching sports at Navy. If not dragging on the weekends. Jim was fre- quently seen taking in a movie in town. Regardless of what career he chooses, his easygoing personality will assure him of smooth sailing in the days ahead. " Aug-g-g-h! " JAMES CRAWFORD LEWIS EDGARDO MIGUEL LORET DE MOLA MICHAEL LOUIS MARKUSIC JAMES CRAWFORD LEWIS Uniondale, New York During his four years Jim Lewis distinguished himself as one of the finest athletes ever to graduate from the United Stales Naval Academy. As a " youngster " Jim was first string AU-American attackman on everyone ' s roster. This habit of being named AU-American in lacrosse continued for the next two years. During the fall sport sets at the Academy, Jim was found on the varsity soccer field. His goal in the 1964 NCAA soccer tournament won the National Championship for the Naval Academy. This all around athlete from Uniondale, New York, had always desired to attend the Academy and make the Naval Sei-vice his career. Along with his remarkable athletic achievements, Jim kept his grades high and was often found on the Superintendent ' s List. His quick wit and excellent sense of humor made him many friends throughout the Brigade. In his social life Jim could always be counted on to be the " live wire " of any party or participate actively on all projects. Jim ' s four years at the Academy have only begun a most outstanding career and future for him. EDGARDO MIGUEL LORET DE MOLA Callao, Peru Coming to Annapolis after one and one-half years at the Peruvian Naval Academy, Ed managed not to master the English language until plebe year was safely over. He easily adapted to the academic demands and as a result found time to devote to many other things. Known as the Company Artist, Ed ' s room was always papered with the latest results of his vivid imagination and unex- celled pen. With feminine acquaintances on three con- tinents, a good deal of his time was spent in composing letters widi a Latin accent. Somehow it always seemed the girl he was currently interested in was the farthest away! Always active, Ed made use of his native ability in soccer to become a valuable asset to everyone on the many different intramural squads he joined. Ed was a true friend of those who knew him and could always be counted on to find something funny in everything that befell him. He was always happy to spend hours telling anyone about his beloved Peru and showing the innumera- ble beautiful pictures he took at home and on leave. After graduation Ed will return to his homeland fully prepared to assume the initiative as an outstanding officer, and he will always have an enthusiastic word for the years he spent at Annapolis. MICHAEL LOUIS MARKUSIC Battle Creek, Michigan " Kooz " is from Battle Creek, Michigan, and very proud of the fact. He is a very easygoing fellow, but he does a professional job on official matters. Mike can be char- acterized as having an unusual ability for academics and a great desire to enjoy all available liberty. Since plebe year Mike has been on the Dean ' s List and the Superin- tendent ' s List. His extracurricular activities include being a member of the Naval Academy Christian Association, Vice-president of the French Club, and a Sunday school teacher at the North Severn River Naval Station Chapel. On first class cruise " Kooz " was on the U.S.S. Tecumseh (SSBN 628) out of Guam. During the two month sub- merged war patrol, he distinguished himself by qualify- ing as diving officer. His classmates expect Michael to do quite well in the Navy ' s Nuclear Power program. ROBERT BURTON McGEHEE Vicksbiirg, Mississippi 366 ROBERT BURTON McSEHEE RODNEY PETER REMPT CLARENCE EDWARD RICHARDS Very few people have graduated from the Academy without losing their temper at least once. Bob has never spoken harshly or rudely to anyone. Both as a plebe and an upperclassman, he maintained an air of congeniality and co-operativeness. His home is Vicksburg, Mississippi. He was an outstanding player on the company basketball and volleyball teams. Also, he was a member of the For- eign Relations club. Math and the sciences were never easy for Bob, who was a social studies major. His ex- cellent grades and class standing are proof of the long hours he spent studying. His high degree of intelligence, maturity, and self-discipline insure him of a bright and promising future. RODNEY PETER REMPT Van Nuys, California A native of sunny California, " peace-loving " Rod ar- rived at the Naval Academy to end a seven-year dream of coming to Navy. Soon he was well known by his class- mates in his ability to claim he had " failed disastrously in everything ..., " meanwhile keeping one of the highest academic records in the company. He dedicate ' d most of his free time to train himself in all the idiosyncrasies of the Navy as a member of the YP Squadron, spending many a weekend bobbing on the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. A deeply religious man. Rod rounded up his heavy week ' s schedule instructing officer ' s children at the Chapel Sunday School and daydreaming of his faraway warm California weather. His courteous manners, and friendly nature made him one of the best liked and respected men among those who knew him. The Naval Academy ' s loss of a fine Midshipman will be the Navy ' s gain of an even finer officer. BURKE PROGRAM CLARENCE EDWARD RICHARDS Nashville, Tennessee Jack came to the Naval Academy after two years at Vanderbilt University in his hometown of Nashville, Ten- nessee, and a year in the Marine Corps. While at Navy, Jack ' s academic achievements were sur- passed only by his spirit on the intramural athletic fields. Standing in the top of his class, he was a frequent addi- tion to the Superintendent ' s List. Getting along with friends was one of Jack ' s greatest assets in life. Socially, he could always be found where the fun was. With his great devotion to the Service, especially to the Marine Corps, there is only one thing in store for him as an officer in the future — success. LORENZO ANDRE RIVAMONTE Virginia Beach, Virginia Andre entered the Academy via Norfolk, eager to ex- cel, and excel he did. A year at VMI put Andre a little ahead of his classmates as far as military bearing was concerned. A quick mind and a vigorous, disciplined ambition put him in the lead academically. One could often find the former Virginia state cham- pion wrestler in the wrestling loft or out on the athletic field maintaining physical as well as mental superiority. Although he was mild mannered and conscientious, Andre always managed to pile up the demerits as a true victim of the system. Andre will best be remembered for his genuine in- terest in others. He never said no, whether it was the loan of five dollars or help with academics. We can expect much of this man. 367 THIRD BATTALION EIGHTEENTH COMPANY LORENZO ANDRE RIVAMONTE MICHAEL ROBERT RYAN DAVID JOSEPH SADD MICHAEL ROBERT RYAN Tampa, Florida From Hillsborough High School in Tampa, Florida, Mike came to the Academy with a true southern spirit which wasn ' t dampened by even plebe year. Academical- ly, this persevering spirit has kept him on top of his studies. Athletically, this competitive spirit has held him in good stead on several battalion and company teams, including a Regimental championship cross-country team. Mike ' s quiet, level headed personality will be a welcome addition to any wardroom and will carry him far in the Naval Service. DAVID JOSEPH SADD Cleveland, Ohio When Dave arrived at the Academy via Cleveland, he brought with him a background that would enable him to rapidly adjust to the rigors of life here. An outstanding athlete at Cathedral Latin School, he contributed his strength and speed towards the Navy football effort. Dave further demonstrated his rugged ability in Brigade boxing. Although a recipient of all the wrath the Executive Department could bestow, Dave gained respect and ad- miration from his classmates for his openly friendly manner and his genial spirit of self sacrifice. Never com- plaining, Dave could always be depended upon when the going became rough; he rarely refused to help a class- mate. A quick, subtle humor made Dave welcome in any company with his smooth manner and winning smile. Dave was equally friendly with all people and was per- haps the best known in the class. Talent with the guitar and piano round out his abili- ties. Dave will be remembered and missed by all of us in the future. KINCHEN JAMES SEARCY Arlington. Virginia Seemingly unconvinced that the Yankees got beyond First Manassas, Kin is always willing to argue a point dealing with the War Between the States. Aside from championing the Lost Cause, his interests in history and political science have reflected themselves in active par- ticipation in the Foreign Relations Club and NAFAC and in enthusiastic study of English, History, and Government courses. He fenced on the plebe team, but turned his efforts to managing during second class year. Although his home was Arlington, Kin never seemed to take ad- vantage of the nearness of those Virginia belles, pre- ferring to spend many " quiet weekends in the Hall " satis- fying his interest in small arms, eating yogurt, or driving his roommates to the border of insanity by playing Wag- nerian opera. Navy line seems to be Kin ' s destination after graduation, as he cares not for submarines and is unqualified for aviation. But wherever he ends up, de- stroyers, minesweepers, or LST ' s, he is sure to be an asset to the Navy team. 368 Iki k • ' : ' a. Nnet com ' ..-•Utile IBWM ilfliii mJB KINCHEN JAMES SEARCY WILLIAM HENRY SPADAFORA ROBERT NARARENE VERRAHI WILLIAM HENRY SPADAFORA Indiana, Pennsylvania Bill " Spats " Spadafora arrived on the scenic Severn from Indiana, Pennsylvania via New Mexico Military Institute. Because the academic load required Bill to limit his athletic talents to one varsity sport, he chose box- ing and as a result became the first member of the class of 1966 to earn a Navy " N " by winning the Brigade Cham- pionship in the 175 lb. division. When not boxing, Bill can be found performing as the mainstay of the intra- mural basketball team or on the golf links, where he is a consistent high 70 shooter. Perhaps his favorite activity is social — dragging. On the academic side, Bill lends his efforts to the Newman and Portuguese Clubs. His determination and drive have earned him the respect of all who know him. These at- tributes, coupled with excellent personality and ability to adjust to any situation, certainly mark Bill as a man who will go far in life. ROBERT NARARENE VERRATTI Fohom, Pennsylvania Big Bob, Rats, as we call him, arrived at the Naval Academy from Folsom, a suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsyl- vania. He was considered to be one of the best athletes ever to graduate from St. James High School. He was runner up in the state finals in the shot put and almost " all " ev- erything in football. Turning down numerous offers from other schools, Bob chose Navy. After preping at Colum- bian, he entered plebe year with great determination which landed him first string end on the Navy Plebe football team. Due to a knee injury though, Bob hung up his cleats to wear stars for a very respectable class average. When not studying, he could be found either keeping in shape or carrying on a thick correspondence with a certain someone. Bob, known and respected throughout the Brigade, not only for his physical stature, but for his willingness to please, will certainly go far in his chosen field. Upon graduation, the Academy will lose a great leader but the fleet will gain a great officer. WILLIAM FRANCIS WRIGHT WILLIAM FRANCIS WRIGHT Washington, D.C. With an older brother at West Point, Bill came from a family already versed in academy life. At St. Johns High School, a military school in Washington, D.C, Bill excelled in many areas including track, the Sodality and the National Honor Society, and was chosen as one of its ranking student officers his senior year. Hard working, expressive, highly emotional, and easily amused. Bill has made a lasting impression on all who have known him. His first few years saw Bill running on the track and cross country teams and meeting everyone at the Academy. He is certainly the only person at the Academy who knows the first name of every classmate. Sincere and well liked, BiU will be an asset to whatever endeavor should be his choice and certainly will con- tinue to make the outstanding contribution to the Naval Service that he has during his years at the Academy. 369 SECOND CLASSMEN Back Row- T.

FARLIN WESLEY ARRiNSTON LAYTON SOUTHERLAND ALLEN. JR. Wilmington, Delaware A Navy junior. Skip came to the Academy straight from Friends High School in Wilmington. Delaware. Adjusting quickly to the military life, Skip made friends easily and put his many talents to good use. A good artist, an amateur astronomer, a camera bug, Skip was always " Mr. Fixit " with radios, clocks, and anything else mechanical. An excellent dancer and a good addi- tion to any party. Skip improved his course standings every year in spite of a full social life. Four years on the Severn Skip was a coxswain for the Academy Light- weight Crews. A fiery member of the plebe soccer team, Skip was a mainstay on the Company teams. Starting on an Oceanography major in second class year, and much impressed with Naval Aviation, Skip has his sights set on a fine career as a Naval Air Observer. FARLIN WESLEY ARRINGTON Boise, Idaho Far came to us from Boise, Idaho, by way of NAPS. After close calls with the math, skinny, and steam de- partments plebe year. Far quickly developed excellent study habits which enabled him to make Supt ' s List or near Supt ' s List grades in the following years. Tien not studying on weekends he could be found tinkering with his hi-fi system which he was continually building and improving. As a means of staying in prime condition, he chose gymnastics. Attaining top man in still rings plebe year. Far was a welcome addition to the varsity. Upon graduation he intends to hop into his bug and head for Pensacola. Being an extremely conscientious person and a pursuer of perfection, he will surely be an asset to his country and his service. Naval Aviation. 375 LAURENCE MICHAEL BERGEN, JR. CRAIG ROBERT BEHS JAMES ROBERT BOYETTE LAURENCE MICHAEL BERGEN, JR. Wantagh, New York Larry came to us straight from Long Island; he brought with him one exceptional trait — versatility. His interest in music scales the limits of Beethoven and Brahms, all the way through Peter, Paul and Mary and down to the Beatles. With his high academic standing in the class and his perpetual willingness to help out the other fellow, he ' s the all-around slash to consult about any " insolvable " problem. On the tennis courts, how- ever, his opponents get slightly different treatment. You can never depend on the second serve being an easy one, which is part of the reason he stood number one on the ladder of the Brigade Championship Tennis team. He participated in plebe squash and then stood at the top of the Company squash ladder; he also played intra- mural volleyball and heavyweight football to round out a diversified interest in sports. Much of his time was spent with extracurricular activities, including Foreign Relations Club, NAFAC, and Lucky Bag, as well as being on the staff of the Trident Magazine. If Larry attacks his job in the Fleet with the same enthusiasm he has displayed here, and we know he will, his should be a long and happy career. FULBRIGHT SCHOLAR India CRAIG ROBERT BETTS Port Jejjerson, Long Island, New York Craig hails from Port Jefferson, New York, where he graduated from Port Jefferson High School in 1960. His love for the sea and ships led him to join the Navy and volunteer for submarine duty. Seasoned by two years of enlisted service aboard the submarine " Cavalla " and at the Naval Academy Preparatory School at Bain- bridge, Craig had no problem meeting the strict military requirements of the Academy. During plebe summer, he became company sub-commander and has continued his fine example of leadership throughout his stay here. Al- though not outstanding in all the academic departments at Navy, Craig has managed to navigate a relatively safe course while maintaining a respectable class standing. No stranger to either the soccer or the football field, Craig participates in both and is an outstanding competitor. Long an enthusiast of wind-powered craft, he always feels at home aboard any vessel that floats and is capable of carrying a sail. Among his other activities are scuba diving, military history, and writing for the Trident magazine. Craig hopes to follow in the footsteps of the much heralded Naval aviator. His extraordinary quali- ties of good judgement and leadership show promise for a long and rewarding career of Naval Service. JAMES ROBERT BOYETTE Pacijica, California Jim joined the Brigade immediately after graduation from Terra Nova High School in Pacifica, California. Upon arrival, he assumed the role of one of the youngest Brigade members. His youth, however, did not prevent him from becoming a part of the many Academy activi- ties. Jim proved to be a major member of his Battalion football team and Company fieldball and baseball teams. Other activities which attracted Jim ' s attention were the Public Relations Club and the French Club. His most outstanding achievement, however, while at the Academy was his academic record. Jim was a diligent and well- rounded student; the Navy gains a diligent and well- rounded officer. TERRENCE JAMES BRADY Solon, Ohio Terry ' s likeable personality was his most valuable as- 376 FOURTH BATTALION NINETEENTH COMPANY TERRENCE JAMES BRADY ELKANAH JOHNSON BURNS JR. , jeie iiie set and an inspiration to others during his four years at USNA. He was always willing to help others with their academics, especially in Physics and Engineering. An Aeronautical Engineering Major, Terry hopes to be able to continue with his studies at a later time. A very capable problem solver, Terry would invent methods to get answers if the available methods failed. During his four years at the Academy, Terry proved his prowess as a wrestler and was an outstanding pass catcher for the Company heavyweight football team. His popularity with women was evidenced by the enormous volume of mail which he received every day. Terry ' s well rounded per- sonality will undoubtedly earn success in whatever field he chooses. ELKANAH JOHNSON BURNS JR. Bronxville, New York After graduating from Roosevelt High School in Yonk- ers, New York, John spent two years in the Marine Corps prior to entering the Naval Academy. Not satis- fied with the basic curriculum at the Academy, John enriched his education by spending many hours reading the works of Dostoevsky, Shakespeare, and Sartre. He was a standout on company soccer, football, and squash teams, but his main interest was dramatics, exhibiting his talents in several Masqueraders performances, includ- ing the lead part in " Montserrat. " That John had a way with the fair sex was evidenced in the large amounts of mail he received, despite the fact that he was never a great letter writer. John ' s high sense of honor and his dedication will make him an outstanding officer in the Naval Service. ROBERT BRADLEY GOSLINE Maumee, Ohio " Cos " arrived at the Naval Academy after spending ROBERT BRADLEY GOSLINE a year at Denison L niversity in Granville, Ohio. He became active in intramural basketball and softball, as well as being an accomplished tennis player. His interest in sports of all kinds was keen, and he can be con- sidered to be somewhat of an authority on sports cars. Very few people worked as hard as " Gos " in the field of academics; his efforts are sure to bring results in the future. Mathematics held a special interest in his four years at USNA. Well liked by everyone, " Gos " can be rehed upon to put forth an all out effort in whatever he does. His intense drive will insure success for " Gos " in any field of his choosing. 377 RANDALL WEBSTER HARDY China Lake, Calijomia Randy entered the Naval Academy after graduating from Walter Johnson High School. Because he came from a Navy family, Randy was used to making rapid transi- tions and this was a major factor in his rapid adjustment to the situation he encountered here at the Academy. Al- ways an avid sport enthusiast, he excelled in such Com- pany sports as soccer and softball. He followed all Navy varsity sports closely, especially the wrestling team for which he was manager. Always a standout performer in academics. Randy, after several false starts, chose Bull as his major. His qualities of industrious leadership and good judgment will certainly make him outstanding in his chosen field of endeavor. RANDALL WEBSTER HARDY " No No . . . There isn ' t any cap trick this time! GEORGE EDWIN KEEFE, JR. JOHN DWIGHT JACKSON Seatord, Delaware Jolui came to us from Seaford, Delaware, via Bullis Prep School. Though not a star student, he always gave his best effort to academics and managed to keep his grades high enough to spend his weekends on the more pleasant aspects of Academy life. In the field of sports, he was not only an avid fan but experienced participant. Football was his favorite and he proved to be an asset to the Company team from plebe year on. If he was not spending his time at sports or studying, he was not at Annapolis. In that case, he would be found in his home town with his favorite female friend. While on Young- ster Cruise he fell in love with the sea and the destroyers that he looks forward to commanding during the years to come. John will always be remembered for his quiet personality and his unquestionable honesty. CHARLES ERNEST JONES. Ill Leopoldville, Congo As an Air Force Junior, Terry doesn ' t exactly know where to call home. His last abode in the " outer world, " however, was Dayton, Ohio, from which he came directly out of high school. His lifelong military affiliation, his ready-willing-and-able attitude, and a lot of plebe per- severance soon enabled him to acclime to the midship- man ' s life, and, more importantly, to learn the ins and outs of avoiding the Performance Officer ' s corrective measures. Terry exemplified his athletic abilities and prowess as a leading contender in plebe cross-country, intramural squash, soccer, and rugby. For lack of better things to do in the evenings, once his letters to a multi- tude of fems were finished, he was forced to conform to the system by studying. These endeavors produced a hap- py surprise when, in his efforts for a Math Major, he retained his permanent place on the Supt ' s list and ac- quired stars, besides. Aside from studies, he found ample time to dedicate to the Trident Society, his coin collec- tion, golf, and his most involved pastime, ' ' Terry ' s girls. " Not being able to completely shake the Air Force up- bringing, Terry has the aspiration and the ability to make a successful career in Naval Aviation. GEORGE EDWIN KEEFE, JR. Moorestown, New Jersey A native of Moorestown, New Jersey, George came to the Academy after a year at Bullis Prep. After making the adjustment from civilian to Academy life, he im- mediately began to show the ability and versatility that he has become noted for. As a plebe, George first began to demonstrate his interest in Brigade and class activities. He has served as both Company Honor Rep and Bat- talion Trident Representative. An avid sports enthusiast, George excelled in Shields Sailing as well as intramural football and volleyball. While participating in these ac- tivities, he also proved himself capable of maintaining an excellent scholastic average as well, earning a place on the Superintendent ' s List. But George ' s greatest achieve- ment while at the Academy has been his development of a definite ability for leadership. This leadership ability, combined with the immense determination which George possesses, will undoubtedly combine to form an outstand- ing Naval officer who will be a credit to our nation. FOURTH BATTALION NINETEENTH COMPANY 379 GEORGE WILLIAM UNEBURG JAMES DeVERE MAYNARD PATRICK JOSEPH McKENNA GEORGE WILLIAM LINEBURG Hoopesion, Illinois A product of the Midwest, Skip came to the Academy just after graduation from high schooL Company soccer and lightweight football kept Skip busy during the fall and winter, while the Public Relations committee and the Spanish Club were other important interests. A con- scientious worker, Skip devoted himself to his studies where he pursued a major in Naval Management. He will always be remembered by the class of ' 68 for his active part in their plebe summer. Always a competitor, Skip is sure to do well in the Supply Corps where he hopes to obtain further graduate study. JAMES De VERE MAYNARD Chelsea, Michigan Jim entered the Academy shortly after graduating from high school in Chelsea, Michigan. Plebe year found him active with plebe football and company sports, where he was a big contributor to the Brigade champion fieldball team. Academics never worried Jim, and he always had ample time for other interests. Jim ' s free time was divided between sports, PRC, Gun Club and the pad. Jim was never one to waste liberty time, and his weekends were always memorable. With his easy-going manner, Jim is certain to be as successful in Naval Avia- tion as he has been here at USNA. PATRICK JOSEPH McKENNA Spokane, Washington Pat, a proud habitant of Spokane, Washington, came to the Academy after spending a year at Gonzaga Uni- versity. As an outstanding athlete all through his high school career, Pat continued to develop his athletic prowess throughout his stay at Navy. Youngster year brought Pat to the starting line-up of Navy ' s Varsity 150 pound football team. His determination and sheer will-power at the tables made him one of the outstanding anchor-men on Navy ' s line. Pat showed that he was a hard hitter on the field as well as off. His studies re- flected his natural ability and intense desire to succeed at whatever he attempted. Throughout four years, Pat never failed once to register his name on the Supt ' s list. As a Math major, Pat wore stars even without the help of the Bull Department. During out-of-season football, one found him playing squash or scuba diving or per- haps at his favorite pastime, eating. Pat always found time to devote to the more professional aspects of USNA with his work on the Trident Magazine. A friendly word, a big smile and the willingness to work hard were the ingredients that brought Pat great succe ss at USNA and will bring him even more success in the Fleet. A special girl and the Nuclear Fleet anxiously await Pat ' s gradua- tion.

He quickly exhibited those traits which have allowed him to excel at everything he tried. This excellence was exemplified by his performance in academics, military ap- titude and sports, including soccer, lacrosse and football. In the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference, Bill set a precedent by becoming the first Second Classman to become a committee chairman. His other activities in- cluded the Foreign Relations Club and The Hop Com- mittee. Handling difficult situations with ease was his forte, which makes him well quahfied for positions of command.

In three short years he had risen to the rank of Lieuten- ant-Colonel! What fortitude it took to give up all this for plebe year. Rog fired for the plebe rifle team, and participated in various Company and Battalion sports throughout his four glorious years at the Academy. Roger ' s name regularly appeared on the Superintend- ent ' s List, and he was often seen wearing the, precious " stars. " His first love, however, was not Naval Academy academics or sports, but speed! His closet was always cluttered with road-racing magazines, and intricate dia- grams of the largest car designs. It was a prerequisite that any girl he dated just had to own a sports car, and Rog just had to have the " wheel. " The love of speed, which Rog has acquired, is drawing him into Naval Aviation, where he hopes to fly the fastest and the newest of the Navy ' s jet arsenal.

A short tour in a civilian college and some time in the fleet as a " white hat " have made Bev one of the elder statesmen of the class. Bev could usually be found tending goal for the company soccer and fieldball teams unless he was busy with the swimming sub squad or making some fresh buttered popcorn. A weakness for women and food caused many a saddened night, but always one to laugh things off, Bev usually came out ahead of the game. Although possessing an extensive knowledge of and desire for Naval Aviation, bad vision has forced Bev to go the way of Navy line. Tlie tin can fleet can be truly grateful, for Bev brings with him the qualifications and potential for doing an outstanding job in whatever field he chooses. DENNIS MICHAEL DOYLE Chester, Pennsylvania Den came to USNA directly from high school in Clay- mont, Delaware, where he had excelled in all sports. He came to the Academy to satisfy his goals of becoming a Naval officer and a football star. He got his sports a little mixed up and wound up as star in Navy Crew ' s first boat. Always conscientious about his studies, he worked hard, and his name usually appeared on the Superintendent ' s List. He enjoyed his overload courses, and earned a major in Social Science. Though quite large, he is probably one of the most easy going Midshipmen at USNA. Den is destined to be a great Naval officer for he has the qualities and motivation to be a leader no matter what career he may follow. After an abortive attempt at intellectualism at Wil- liams College, Mark succumbed to his country ' s calling and joined the Marine Corps reserve. Butler University en- tertained Mark ' s second go at college for a semester. With aid from the Congress, he sought, received and accepted an appointment to USNA. Squash and tennis dominated his first year athletically but Squash became his number one interest during the last three years. After many psychological battles witli Coach Potter he earned his sweater and N ' s. Academically mark finally excelled and wore stars a number of times. Sincerity and straight forward comments were always expected from Mark. At times his conversation meandered into the French vocabulary. With Mark ' s fondness of family and home it was easy to explain how everyone was kept up to date on Indianapolis and conservatism. The future alone will judge whether Mark serves Marine Corps Green or Navy Blue. Regardless, the common sense and foresight displayed as a Midshipman shall without a doubt enable him to achieve his highest soals in the future. SCOTT BRUCE DUDLEY St. Petersburg, Florida MARKHAM BAKER CAMPAIGNE Indianapolis, Indiana Bruce, the son of a Naval officer, was born with Navy blue blood in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. His travels as a Navy junior were many, including such places as Puerto Rico, Okinawa, and Hawaii. Bruce ' s bubbling personality made him a popular guy — both at and away from the Academy. He was a fierce competitor in all sports, quarter- b ' acking the company football team and pitching for the Softball team. Bruce ' s social life was also quite active. With his extraordinary personality, he was often faced with the difficult choice of which beautiful girl to date. He places a high value on his freedom, however, and at present, has no intentions of being snared by any young lady.

DANIEL FRANCIS FINN Leominster, Massachusetts Coming to the Naval Academy from Notre Dame High School of Fitchburg. Massachusetts, " Huck " soon discov- ered the rigors of militarv life. In his ' quiet hours he could be found reading novels or listening to good music, and many times it w ' as a combination of both. The track team, French Club, and the Log staff, all saw his services. Al- though undecided about his career, he would like to go into the N.A.O. program. Whatever branch of the Navy ' ' Huck ' decides upon, it can be certain that he will give his all. CARLTON W. FULFORD Millen, GeoTp,ia Carlton came to the Academy as a star student and athlete from Millen, Georgia. After quickly adapting to the life of a Midshipman, he immediately began to apply himself to the utmost in all phases of Academy life. His athletic ability and will to work brought him his varsity letter in 150-pound football and saw him become one of the leaders in establishing rugby as a permanent sport at USNA. His ambition extended to the academic field where he took additional elective courses with a major in social science as his goal. Carlton ' s quiet, warm personality and his great sense of humor earned him many friends. For those who knew him well, life was interesting for he was always one to be in on a practical joke. With these at- tributes, he is bound for a successful Naval career. CARLTON W.

Academics wor- ried Rick at first, but he put his hose to the grindstone and earned an enviable class standing. In athletics Rick has always been a top competitor; first, in two years of boxing, and then in rugby and fieldball. An Air Force brat. Rick seems to lean towards Naval Aviation, but the Navy can be assured of getting a fine officer no matter what Rick finally decides to enter. PIERCE JARVIS JOHNSON Pawnee City, Nebraska A farm boy from Pawnee City, Nebraska, Pierce im- mediately made himself at home upon entering the Naval Academy. His four years have been devoted to such extra- curricular activities as Drum and Bugle Corps, Antiph- onal Choir. Concert Band, and the German Club. Aca- demically minded, as well as musically inclined, Pierce has consistently been a Superintendent ' s List student in his quest for a double major in the Engineering Depart- ment. Pierce ' s high school career undoubtedly prepared him for his sports life at USNA. He has supported such com- pany sports as soccer, cross country, and basketball, in addition to being a member of the plebe sailing team. It has been said that Pierce could make friends with anyone. His contagious smile and outgoing personality will both take him a long way in life. 390 SAMUEL ROBERT MARRONE towiiiij hi H«iii|iliK EDWARD ANTHONY McKENNEY SAMUEL ROBERT MARRONE Frederick, Maryland Hailing from that booming metropolis of Frederick, Maryland, Sam took his football, lacrosse, and academic abilities to Bainbridge where he became an " old salt " before entering USNA. In spite of the Science Department, he has done well at the Academy, both in academics and athletics. His year-round practice has earned him a place as one of Navy ' s lacrosse midfielders, and in the winter, he finds time to star for his company ' s fieldball team. With a cheery greeting for all, his ever-present smile, his friendly personality and strong drive to accomplish his ambitions, he is certain to become a successful Naval Of- ficer. EDWARD ANTHONY McKENNEY Newton, New Hampshire Coming from the University of Maine with a 3.79, Ed never found a subject that stumped him at USNA. In fact, he understood them so well that he often explained their mysteries better than the profs. Ed devoted a good deal of his spare time to the Class and Crest Committee, dem- onstrating his artistic abilities when his design for the class crest ran a close second. However, Ed ne%er found trouble utilizing his Supt ' s List weekends. During Ed ' s four years at Navy, he was very active in intramurals and always on hand to help out his Com- pany ' s soccer, basketball, knockabout and cross-country teams. Ed, an Army brat brought up in the traditions of the Service, hasn ' t made a choice between the Wings of Gold or the Dolphins of the Silent Service, but no matter what he chooses he will be a credit to the Nava!

Bob was known as an active participant in Drum and Bugle Corps activities as well as an able athlete on company teams, lending his hearty support to the soccer, cross-country and fieldball teams. Bob ' s academic excellence was well attested by his two majors and well-deserved stars. His quest for perfection and efficiency in all things will make him an outstanding officer in days to come. BURKE PROGRAM spent one year at the Maritime Academy in California. Charlie, when not participating during the fall and winter on the varsity wrestling team, could be found on the blue expanse of the Chesapeake as a member of the Y. P. Squadron. Adept not only in athletics, he sang tenor for four years in the Antiphonal Choir. After lights out, Charlie was always up burning the midnight oil on one of his many overload courses. Upon graduation, he wants to have his major in nuclear science. His profound knowl- edge of Naval history and submarines made him a godsend to the plebes in search of answers to their professional questions. The future can hold nothing but success for Charlie as he continues his Naval career. WARREN BURNS PARTAIN, JR.

After a battle with the Academic Board, Burnsy adapted to the " Navy " way and started work on a majors program in Social Science. Plebe and Youngster years found him firing for the Rifle Team, and he has retained his interest in firearms as evidenced by his membership in the USNA Gun Club and the volumes of gun magazines in his pos- session. Burnsy became a manager for the 150 lb. Football team and the Mighty Mites were glad of it. With his mind applied to the situation, Burnsy will be an asset ta the Corps.

Jim never strayed too far from his bed, however, and spent many hours contemplating his role in the nation ' s future. While encountering slight difficulty with the science department, he always man- aged to come out ahead. One year at the University of Maryland had spoiled him but bigger and better things prompted his decision for a Naval career. He occupied a spot in the hearts of many young ladies and was dev- astating in the field of amour.

He carried this aggressiveness in athletics to the Academy where he became a standout fullback on the Battalion football team, as well as a stick- out member on his Company fieldball and Batt water polo teams. Academically, John has done well, carrying this fine trait of aggressiveness into his study program. John leisurely passes his few free hours enjoying good music and swimming. Beer holds the unique distinction of sav- ing the life of one of his drowning classmates during his plebe summer, thereby attesting to his fine swimming ability. Perhaps John ' s best trait is getting along well with others, his seniors as well as his juniors. His personality should carry him a long way in his chosen profession; he ' s just a " regular " guy.

I SMOOT ANTLE III STEVEN MAURICE Groton, Connecticut Bill, sometimes clubbed " Smoot. " but most of the time. " Willy. " claimed former residences that read much like a travel log of the United Slates — he moved from Cali- fornia to Illinois to Maine and then south, with brief stays in most of the Atlantic seaboard states, to Florida. His fondest recollections, however, stem from a few years spent in ancient Athens, Greece. Before entering the Academy, Bill spent a year at Exeter Prep. School. Natu- rally, he is of Navy vintage, and is being well-oriented toward a future career with our submarine force. Nonethe- less, it is evident from his " star " average and overloading in science that Bill has made much of the decision on his own. Crew is his forte, having lettered as a member of the lightweight team for three years. His second year, bv the way, was highlighted by a hair-raising episode in the icy Severn when Bill went under with one of five lost shells. Around the hall. Bill is a likeable guy — always ready to organize inter-class football games, and always at hand for a few laughs. His well-rounded life at the Academy should help him weather any rough water in the fleet. STEVEN MAURICE ARENDT Alexandria, Minnesota Steve hails from Alexandria. Minnesota, and came to the Brigade after a year at St. John ' s University. Steve was well suited to meet the challenges that awaited him and he met them with the confidence and eagerness that have since become his trademark. His athletic abilities were proven on his intramural fieldball and cross-country teams. Academically, Steve was a hard worker and was rewarded by making the Superintendent ' s List, even after a difficult time with the language requirement. His easy- going manner and good nature are reflected in the high esteem that his friends have for him. A gentleman and a leader in every sense of the word, Steve will continue to be a success and a credit to the Naval Service. ARENDT KELLY RAY BERKLINE KELLY RAY BERKLINE Quincy, California A native of the rugged Sierra Nevada mountains in Northern California, Kelly came to the Academy directly from Quincy High School. If you want to start a heated argument, just utter a derogatory phrase about Kelly ' s Golden State. Kelly could always be found bolstering company sports and his determination and fierce desire to win. won him admiration and respect on both the soccer and fieldball fields. An academic master in high school, Kelly found the Academy subjects not exactly to his liking, but maintained good grades throughout the four years. Kelly is an avid skier and during leave periods he could be found flying down the snow covered slopes. With his fierce determination to win, he will be a wel- come addition to the Naval Aviation Team. FOURTH BATTALION TWENTY- Fl RST COMPANY 399 WILLIAM FRANK BINA JUSTICE MARION CHAMBERS JR. LARRY ALLEN DEAN JC WILLIAM FRANK BINA III Chicago, Illinois As one of the youngest members of hig class, Bill was taken under the wing of his older classmates and ap- propriately dubbed with the nickname " Bird. " Originally from Chicago, he quickly adapted himself to the new type of life encountered at USNA. Academics gave Bill no problems, and he easily compiled an enviable scholastic record. His sports ability, though confined mainly to the intramural field, shown brightly as he starred in a variety of Company sports throughout the year. Few people dis- played a greater love of the pad, and he managed to " log in " a maximum number of hours. Bill will indeed be a welcome addition to the fighting Navy-Marine Corps team. JUSTICE MARION CHAMBERS JR. Rockville, Maryland " Mike. " as he is called byhis classmates, came to the Naval Academy from his home in Maryland by way of the Marine Corps and prep school. Mike was always in- terested in making the Marine Corps his life. During his years at the Academy, he was very active in Glee Club, Catholic choir, and Musical club shows. Mike became part of " show biz " at the Academy. His father, a Marine Corps officer, encouraged Mike to develop a vast knowledge of the subject. Mike will make a dedicated officer upon graduation. LARRY ALLEN DEAN Westhke, Ohio Larry came to the Naval Academy after completing high school at Westlake. Ohio. After a rugged plebe summer, Larry placed a smile on his face and adjusted to the system at USNA. He ran a four year battle with the Academic Department, but by burning the midnight oil, always managed to come up with the big grade when he needed it. A good athlete. Larry learned some new tricks at Navy. A strong point on any team, he was known as a hard charger and fierce competitor in football and fieldball, and finally came out on top in swimming. As a member of the Gun Club, Larry was active in the movement to rebuild the skeet range across the Severn. Larry will be a big addition for whichever branch «f the service he sets his sights on. JOHN RAYMOND ELLIS Verona, New Jersey Ray ' s speedy frame could be found batting down oppo- nent ' s goal attempts most of the year as he participated fiercely in Company soccer and fieldball. Having brought a subtle blend of intelligence and highly developed athletic skill to Navy, Ray earned his numerals for plebe soccer and praise for his Supt ' s List grades. Verona, New Jersey was his home and his usual target on those too few and too 400 FOURTH BATTALION TWENTY- Fl RST COMPANY JOHN RAYMOND ELLIS THOMAS HAROLD GRIM .v»M .0 w short weekends away from the comfort of " Mother B ' . A science and math overloader. Ray has appUed his casual genius to achieving a major in Engineering Science. His spare time was taken by a wide range of literature and an inevitable respite replenishing his energy on the blue trampoline. Certainly his far-reaching talents will serve both him and the Navy in the years that follow that big day in June. ' Those we leave behind ' could do well by following his example. THOMAS HAROLD GRIM Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania Tom came to the Academy direct from Wilkinsburg Senior High School of Steellown. U.S.A.— Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. At USNA Tom continued his outstanding athletic career as a member of the wrestling team. On any given afternoon he could be found up in the wres- tling loft taking on all comers. Academics never came easy for Tom; thus he was always busy keeping one step ahead of the academic departments. When it mattered most Tom could be counted on to come through in fine style, even against the skinny department. Besides fight- ing the system Tom ' s other pastime was s leeping. Not many free periods passed without Tom getting in a little time in the horizontal position. His winning personality plus his ability to overcome obstacles should help him do well in his chosen field. RONALD JAMES HARTNETT RONALD JAMES HARTNETT orl Lauderdale., Florida Griz came to the Academy from Fort Lauderdale High School via NAPS where he excelled in both football and baseball. His athletic interests now are football and lacrosse. During the off season he is one of the regulars in the weight room trying to improve himself for foot- ball. Despite his athletic interests, Ron has managed to keep a high academic average. His ambitions point toward a major in History. Ron rnay seem quiet and re- served but at heart he is jovial and fun-loving. Graduation will find him a fine officer, whose efforts will be crowned with success. 401 i« rr • STANLEY MORTON HOLMES JR. PAUL MIKEL HUBER " Hey. pal _. . . you forgot something. ' STANLEY MORTON HOLMES JR. Roscmnn!. Pennsylvania Stan came to the Academy straight out of Radnor High School in Rosemont. Pennsylvania. While there he ex- celled in football and track, continuing his participation in these sports at L ' SNA. During the off season you could almost inevitably find him in the fieldhouse lifting weights. His ability along these lines has earned him the nickname of Man-mountain Holmes. Although Stan was no academic slash he was capable of good work when it was needed. Upon graduation and entrance to the fleet he will be a fine officer and a credit to the Naval Service. PAUL MIKEL HUBER Corrallis. Oregon Paul was raised in the woodland areas of Oregon where he developed his adventurous spirit along with avid interests in hunting, fishing, and cars. Having m de the transition from a high school senior to a midshipman, Paul realized and met a challenge in academics as is evidenced by his Supt ' s List standing. A regular member of company intramural sports, Paul liked to stretch his long legs in sports requiring a lot of running, in which he excelled. Paul led a very active social life at the academy, and could be seen with his date at academy functions or in the city of Annapolis during all available liberty hours. Having an easy going nature, Paul made many friends at the academy and in the city of Annapolis. Paul ' s self-confidence and poise in any situation will certainly prove a valuable asset to him in his role as a naval officer. DUNCAN NATHANIEL INGRAHAM KENNETH DOUGLAS LOVEH [,0w«» DUNCAN NATHANIEL INGRAHAM Polan }, Ohio Dune entered the Naval Academy upon graduation from Poland High School in Ohio where he excelled in track and football. Since his arrival at the Academy he continued his sports career by breaking the plebe pole vault record and proving himself an outstanding member of the Big Blue Team. With his fine sense of humor. Dune had no difficulty adjusting to Navy life, and many study hours were spent in good-natured bull sessions. In spite of academic pressures, Dune always managed to be well-rested, and entered many an exam with an unclut- tered mind. Dune ' s devotion to duty and sense of re- sponsibility will prove him a credit to the Naval Service. KENNETH DOUGLAS LOVETT Des Moines, Iowa A proud native of Des Moines, Iowa, K. D. came from a year of frat. parties, women, and song at Iowa State University. Plebe year found him across the river as the 1 golfer on the plebe team. Each afternoon in the spring and fall found him engaged in practice rounds on the Naval Academy course. His athletic prowess was displayed on the football field where he was a mainstay of the company heavyweight team. He maintained an above average academic record with little effort, but no thanks to the Dago Department. He will do well in any- thing he attempts and, possessing a keen sense of re- sponsibiUty and a tremendous pride in the Navy, Ken seems headed for a successful etnd rewarding career. FOURTH BATTALION TWENTY- Fl RST COMPANY 403 JAMES DANIEL McCAGUE KEVIN WILLIAM McCOOK GEORGE WYNN MONTGOMERY JAMES DANIEL McCAGUE Phoenix, Arizona Dan proudly claims Phoenix, Arizona as his home town. He gave up a major in business administration during his sophomore year at Arizona State to enlist in the Navy. After a fun-filled year in San Diego and San Francisco, Dan passed the tests for the Naval Academy Preparatory School at Bainbridge, Maryland. He graduated from Bain- bridge with the top of his class, and moved on to the Naval Academy. Dan had less than the usual amount of trouble with plebe year, thanks to his ability to make friends with everyone he met and his knowledge of the Navy. As an active participant in company sports, Dan at one time held the record for the cross country course. His favorite sport, however, was volleyball in which he was the star member of the team. Dan ' s exceptional ma- turity and drive will help him to be an outstanding leader in his chosen field. KEVIN WILLIAM McCOOK Sprini field, Massachuselis Kevin brought a variety of interests to the Naval Acad- emy. He was in French Club, Scuba Club, Gun Club, and Foreign Relations Club. His participation in clubs reflects his major academic and sport interests. Although he has fought a hard battle with the technical aspects of a mid- shipman ' s academic requirements, he has been able to take a major in the Foreign Language Department. The additional French courses he took to obtain a major will undoubtedly help him during his career. Since previous experience in rowing is the exception rather than the rule, Kevin was a valuable member of the lightweight plebe crew, having been captain of his high school crew; Kevin has been partial to water sports at the Academy. He was a member of the plebe swimming team and a manager in subsequent years. Along with participation in Scuba Club, Kevin has aided plebes to pass their mini- mum swimming requirements, and kept in shape working out at the natatorium. Kevin ' s quick smile and self-con- fidence have earned him many friends and are sure to help him throughout his career. He has a bright future as an officer and it will be to anyone ' s advantage to have Kevin as a member of their organization. GEORGE WYNN MONTGOMERY Knoxville, Tennessee Wynn, better known as Monty, came to the Academy from Knoxville, Tennessee. Amiable and intelligent, his warm personality won him many friends among all classes. During his hitch at USNA he received much heckling because of his supposedly " hillbilly " background. Although sports were not one of his strong points, he was always willing to give a determined effort. His efforts in Brigade activities more than made up for this. There were few times when Monty wasn ' t at class that he wasn ' t in the pad. He was the only person with a QPR over 2.8 to worry about what school he was going to next term. With no definite plans as to the service, Monty will be a suc- cess whatever his field. ROBERT M. NUTWELL New Providence, New Jersey Bob came to the Academy from New Providence High School in New Providence, New Jersey. From the first time he slipped a slide-rule, he was a delight to the En- gineering and Math Departments.

The Xavy will be richer because of Bob ' s drive and interest. WILLIAM STANLEY ORSER San Diego, California As a Navy junior. Skip traveled throughout the country, but San Diego was his only home. After playing football in high school, Skip switched to crew where he became an outstanding oarsman for the Brigade. Although an efficient and hard working person, he always found time to have a good time and enjoyrd many a party during his four years at Navy. His thoroughness and interest in Academy life won him a prominent place in his class. In spite of academic pressures, Skip always managed to be well rested and entered many a final with an unbiased mind. He could always be counted on to do a good job except for the hours between 0615 and 0900 when he closelv resembled a walking zombie. Once awake, though. Skip was his usual good-natured self. Skip will always be a pleasure to work with. MICHAEL GLEN O ' SHEA Mike hails from the sticks of Idaho MuUan. Idaho a small town called luUan. He attended Mullan High School, where he plaved varsity football and basketball, then spent a year at the University of Idaho before coming to the Naval Academy. At Annapolis he maintained his interest in MICHAEL GLEN O ' SHEA sports — participating in Battalion football and fieldball, and as a varsity baseball manager. In the field of aca- demics, Mike ' s grades were good enough to enable him to help his roommates when necessary. Among Mike ' s nicknames were " Midget, " for his 5 ' -6 " stature: he also enjoyed the title of COMSUBSQUAD for his perennial, distinguished service on the swimming sub squad. Mike ' s interest in sports was rivalled only by his interest in a certain female from Springfield, Virginia. His roommates can attest that she was his favorite topic of discussion. Finally. Mike served four faithful years as tbe Drum and Bugle Corps ' best noise-maker — he played the cymbals. 405 WILLIAM LAWRENCE PHILLIPS, JR. TOM HUNTER REYNOLDS, JR. JACK WARREN STEPHENSON, JR. WILLIAM LAWRENCE PHILLIPS, JR. Vicksburg, Mississippi Bill made the long journey to Navy from the deep South, after spending a year at Mississippi State Universi- ty. His exceptional sense of humor carried him through his transition from fraternity parties to Navy life. He always managed to keep his roommates hopping with his famous rebel flag. As a charter member of happy hour during Airtramid, Bill was always on hand when the fun started. He was known to his classmates as fun- loving though hard-working. Bill has resourcefulness, drive, and desire and will have a successful and reward- ing career. TOM HUNTER REYNOLDS, JR. Dundee, Illinois Being from a typical Service family, it couldn ' t be said that Tom joined the Navy to see the world — he al- ready had! Following in his father ' s footsteps, USNA was already an old friend to Tom when he arrived here from Melbourne High School in Florida. His adjustment to Academy life proved to be no problem and his easy- going attitude was always a fine example for his class- mates and won him many friends. Besides Company parties, Tom enjoyed intramural sports and he always ran a good course for the cross-country team. After- noons in the spring meant sailing or tennis, Tom ' s favo- rite pastimes at Navy. Academically, the " Dago Slash " excelled in the liberal arts while he often had to resort to hand-to-hand to defeat the Steam and Skinny Depart- ments. " TR ' s " loyalty and enthusiasm for the Service, added to his smiling determination, will make Tom a proud addition to the Fleet. JACK WARREN STEPHENSON, JR. Grosse Pointe, Michigan Michigan endowed USNA with one of its favorite sons, Skip. Coming here after four glorious years as a high school athlete, Skip played on the plebe football team. In his upperclass years. Skip gave up football and devoted his time to academics. A real worker. Skip con- quered his studies with diligent work and long hours and was rewarded with the Superintendent ' s List every semester. Skip was never one to let his serious attitude towards studies and the Naval Academy prevent him from having a good time. Plebe year, when most of us were too scared to spea k. Skip wore pajamas to forma- tion — and got away with it. Most of his compatriots will remember him best for his excellent taste in female companionship. Skip ' s desire to always do what is right, combined with a strong sense of duty and a desire to succeed brought him successfully through the Naval Academy. These same traits, wherever they are applied, will make Skip an outstanding member of his profession. THOMAS JOHNS WILLIAMS. JR. HyattsviUe, Maryland A world traveler of many miles and years, Tom stopped at USNA for a brief respite from his quest for adventure. Learning the incompatibility of studying and adven- ture, Tom leaned toward the latter. With a great interest in history, Tom reluctantly mastered the slide rule. Known " affectionately " as the Shark of the plebes, he was a firm believer in a rigorous plebe year, and many plebes felt the Shark ' s teeth. Having lived in Japan and just about everywhere in the United States, Tom de- veloped his voracious appetite for current events. This led to membership in the Foreign Affairs Club.

JOHN CHARLES WILLIAMSON Huron, Ohio John, a poor shellshocked country boy who wandered here from the hills of Huron, Ohio, made himself an integral part of the Brigade. John picked up enough skill and determination on the way to become the main- stay of the Varsity tennis team. He has also actively participated in the Choir and Glee Club and supported many Brigade activities. During his stay here at USNA, John has managed to study enough to keep the stars he earned plebe year, but he always found the time to help a struggling classmate. During the summer he could usually be found wandering through sqme South Ameri- can country. Armed with an easy-going personality that has won him the respect and admiration of his class- mates, John is certain to be a valuable asset to any Navy wardroom. FULBRIGHT SCHOLAR Ecuador R. F. WURSTER New York City, New York Ron is one of the more unusual members of the Bri- gade — he combines both intellect and prowess in sports in his 6 ' 3 " ' frame. Consistently, he finds his name on the Superintendent ' s List. He followed Roger Staubach ' s steps at New Mexico Military Institute, very hard steps to fill, even with Wus ' s size 13 gunboats. Nevertheless, Ron not only filled Staubach ' s shoes, but he led the same team to the same win-loss record as Roger ' s. His athletic talents are limited in one field only — swimming. After a nearly R. F. WURSTER fatal start, he has become a member of the starting team of Coach Lenz for three years running. Wus ' s varsity athletic activity was baseball. It appeared that of the several sports possible, he could get his N star more quickly at his outfield position. For a breather he plays Company heavyweight football. Ron is one of those rare people who wouldn ' t hurt anyone. His Queens accent and his wholesome sense of humor have endeared him to all his classmates. Few raids are known better or more widely around the " campus. " Ron ' s choice is Navy or Marine Aviation. Whichever course he takes will be counted as a loss by the other. 407 SECOND CLASSMEN Bact Row. E. W, Moldenhaver, J. R, Selmer, W. L. McCracken, D. G. Matthews, R. H. Johnston, S. C. Arey, T. W.

ROBERT A ' DREW BROOKS Muskegon, Michigan Being from Michigan, Bob naturally loved the out-of- doors and was extremely active in sports. Just about every- thing came easily to Bob, from academics to athletics, and he seemed to spend most of his time trying to either lose weight for crew or gain weight to go home. You could usually find Bob dragging a few locals on the week- ends except when his O.A.O. from Texas was here. Bob had the unusual experience of being on the second class Summer Detail and going to Pensacola for flight training all in the same summer. After experiencing both, he de- cided to make Navy Line his future career, but which- ever field he enters. Bob will be a credit to himself and his countrv. with two years of college behind him. A long and dark plebe year did not let him forget how badly he had always wanted to graduate from the Naval Academy. Den took an early interest in crew and followed it up with many hours of hard work in a shell for the lightweight team, enabling him to letter in the sport as a youngster. He was as serious a student as an athlete, and he never took any undertaking too lightly. His only serious academic chal- lenge came from the Department of E.H. G.. which stood in the way of his being a member of the Superintendent ' s List more than once. One rarely heard Denny complain about any phase of his Academy life, as he always seemed to have in mind that his appointment had not come easily. There is no doubt that he will be as fine and conscientious an officer as he was a midshipman.

It was here and at New Mexico Military Institute that he distinguished himself as a gifted leader as well as a punishing fullback, which talent he retained while at the Academy. Al o hiah on his list of likiii ' is were folk music and weight lifting: and his fine physique and harmonious voice, as well as his self-taught skill with the guitar, served him well in personal enjoyment, in self- accomplishment, and in the entertainment of his friends. Songs of Johnny Cash, Flatt Scruggs, and the Carter Family could often be heard when passing by his room, Carlton ' s lively sense of humor and his ability to imitate any one and anything was a constant source of fun for everyone associated with him. But most of all, Carlton ' s strong desire to succeed in whatever he has undertaken, no matter what the cost in work and sacrifice, gives him an admirable trait which many lack, and which will make him an invaluable asset to Marine Corps Aviation, which he hopes to enter upon graduation. GEORGE WILLSON GORMAN Glrmlnlc. West Viriiinia When George arrived from West Virgina, he brought with him a taste for the better literature and music in addi- tion to an avid interest in national and international af- fairs. His interests soon led to many enthusiastic discus- sions and his library became the Company source for everything from plebe questions to first class term papers. His interests and electives in the field of history soon led to an active part in the Foreign Relations Club and the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference. During the spring and fall sets he could be found on the waters of the Chesapeake striving to develop and improve his profes- sional ability and knowledge. When the ice became too thick he traded his stadimeter for a football and engaged in Company football waiting for the spring thaw. In his few moments of relaxation Gouge made good use of his record albums which covered nearly every mood and taste from Brahms to the Kingston Trio. His interests and abilities should offer hijn an enjoyable and fruitful career as a Naval officer. WILLIAM VICTOR ERICKSON Seattle, Washington Rill, from Seattle.

Bill has taken an active interest in sports by playing both Rugby and soccer. After three years of trying to ignore studies, the Academic Departments finally taught him a profound lesson. His ability to make friends and to get the job done will make him a welcome addition to the Navy. WILLIAM VINCENT HICKEY. JR.

It didn ' t take him long to find out about the D B and Concert Band, where he put his musical interest and ability to good use. He also liked to play with words, and his subtle puns were a source of con- stant amusement to his friends. As a youngster he ac- quired an interest in the game of soccer and became one of the team ' s managers, as well as one of its most ardent supporters.

Plebe year found Walt playing plebe football and Company fieldball where he. time after time, dis- played the form that made him All-State in football. Sports were not Walt ' s only claim to fame. Again and again, he was described as " looking like a movie star " — ■ Edward G. Robinson. A lover of music, he could al- ways be found playing his guitar at the " song fests " on Friday nights. His pride and joy. was the stereo setup he hooked up by himself. As he often said, " I may not know the theory, but I can ' t be beat for practical work. " When not dragging on the weekends, Walt expended his energies hitting the books, but has yet to pass up a friendly Sunday afternoon touch football game. His major? German. And how can he go wrong with the gift of gab he has! His future? Undecided as yet, but whatever field he enters, you can be sure that he will be a credit to the Service. RAYMOND LEE LUENEBURG St. Paul, Minnesota After graduating a Cadet Colonel from St. Thomas Academy, St. Paul, Minnesota ' s version of West Point, Ray, known to many as " Looey, " decided to face reality and join the Navy. Perhaps it was his swimming ability as a varsity backstroker which influenced him, or per- haps he ' d already seen enough of the other side. Plebe year was fairly good to Ray and he participated in several plebe record setting relays as well as spending the spring across the river with the plebe golf team. aiMir: MICHAEL JAMES McQUAID RICHARD DAVID MILLER GEORGE MALCOLM MOORE lit 31 IMIMII ' if. . i3iii -d uoiiestii ' ' i toS si- 1 r,,- ■ ' ' : ( to pe J- ' list ,; sis. « ' •■■ Since then, he has concentrated his time in Scott Nata- toriuni and on his gymnastic prowess on the " trampoline. " He has also become a connoisseur of good books and music, and has watched enough movies to make him a qualified cinematic critic. In spite of all this, he has managed enough free time to concentrate on a Mathe- matics major. With his easygoing manner, Ray should have a lot of success in whatever field he should decide to enter. MICHAEL JA: 1ES McQUAID Chicago, Illinois Mike came to LSXA from the big city of Chicago and had little problem adjusting to life as a plebe. His classmates soon found out that his sense of humor was " Bug ' s " greatest asset, and many of our study hours were rounded off with a side-splitting visit from him. His struggle with the academics was long, hard, and often, but somehow Bug managed to pull it out every time. Mike ' s favorite topic was railroads, and there wasn ' t a man around who knew more about them than he. Sportswise, Mike enjoyed participation on several good intramural squash, basketball, and cross-coimtry teams. His leaves were spent more in Milwaukee than Chicago, and it wasn ' t only the beer he was interested in. Bug ' s sincere liking for a career in Naval Aviation will indeed make him an asset to the Naval Service. RICHARD DAVID MILLER Ohi Coming to the Academy directly from Lima Senior High School, " The Mils " has demonstrated his versatility throughout his years at the Academy. He has showTi his musical abilities in his participation in the NA-10, the Chapel Choir, and the Glee Club. His athletic skill and determination have shown themselves on the " Mighty Mite ' field, where he won two varsity letters, and in the spring on the rugby field, where he was an " All Star " regular. He also found time to help out in Company basketball during the winter months. Mils has also studied hard here and has been able to make the Super- intendent ' s List while also getting a major in Air Ocean Environment. All of these qualities are combined with a driving desire to " hit the pad " during any free time whatsoever, to the constant amazement of his friends. In the future. Mils hopes to be a Line Officer, where we know his versatility, good nature, and hard work will outline a successful career. GEORGE MALCOLM MOORE Alameda, California Entering the Academy with a diversified background due to the fact that he was a Navy junior, George soon proved that he was the man to beat. His excellence in academics was unchallenged and a common phrase con- cerning " Nutty George " was " . . . . if he can ' t do it, nobody can. " But George ' s interests did not stop at the purely academic level. He side-stepped both football and track, which he had pursued in ' high school, to concentrate all his effort in crew. A desire to excel found his rowing on the Severn when the ice had barely broken. George ' s very broad and keen knowledge of the Navy frustrated many plebes who tried to win " carry-on " from him. Al- ways anxious to try something new, he would snatch at every opportunity that came along, including guitar play- ing and scuba diving. With his keen wit and determina- tion, the road ahead for George will be filled with great achievement. FULBRIGHT SCHOLAR Netherlands 415 FOURTH BATTALION TWENTY- SECOND COMPANY MICHAEL EDMUND NABER JOHN ROWLAND NAYE MICHAEL EDMUND NABER Sequim, Washington Mike comes from the land of tall timber and delicious apples. Before coming to the Naval Academy, he spent a year at the University of Washington doing a study into the finer things in life. The regimentation of plebe year was only a temporary lull in an otherwise adventur- ous social life, Mike ' s quiet, friendly personality enables him to make friends easily. However, all those who have faced him in wrestling, rugby, " overweight " football, soccer, or fieldball can readily attest to his rUgged com- petitive spirit. Mike ' s love for a good book and his bed is second only to his love for the fairer sex. Even though studying is not Mike ' s favorite pastime, he has demon- strated his ability to stay above water with relative ease. Mike ' s keen mind and personal charm will undoubtedly see him through many successful years in the Navy. JOHN ROWLAND NAYE Bay Village, Ohio John left the beaches of Southern California eager to begin his new career at USNA. A fine leader and athlete in high school, John spent the fall and spring seasons roaming the outfield spaces for Navy ' s varsity nine. In the off season, company football found good use for his services. Never one to shirk his studies, Bucky, as called by manv. remained at the top of his class spending long hours completing his major in the EH G Department. Eager to find " the " girl but not ready to be caught, John made good use of his Superintendent ' s List weekends. A keen interest in sports and a fine collection of records kept John busy during his " free " time. Second class sum- mer left him with the urge to fly; whichever branch John chooses, the naval service will receive a gentleman, leader, and sportsman. 416 ■ GARY LYNN NEWKIRK ■A A PETER WHALEN OATIS GARY LYNN NEWKIRK Hagerstoivn, Maryland On June 27, 1962 Gary made the two hour trip from Hagerstown, Maryland to become transformed from the " Bear " of South Hagerstown High into the esteemed status of a plebe. Since then he has completed the further transformation from plebe to upperclassman, and now to junior officer without losing the good humor and gener- ous personality he had brought with him. Not a man to anger, " Newks " has spent a lot of time in McDonough Hall as a Brigade boxer, deciding to forego the track career he started as a plebe. He has pursued academics with the same determination he has shown in the ring. Coming off his split decision plebe year he has continued to improve and the odds are ten to one he ' ll walk off as the champ. He also found time to sing in the Chapel Choir besides satisfying his keen interest in race car driving. Possessing a constant desire to win he attacks every- thing with enthusiasm. This even extends into his eating where he is undoubtedly an expert on seafood. Gary will surely be a " 20-year man " if he can find a ship that serves good fried oysters and clam chowder frequently. PETER WHALEN OATIS Indianapolis, Indiana Coming to the Academy directly from high school in Indianapolis. Indiana, Pete showed, right from the start of plebe summer, the dedication and competitiveness that made him one of the most respected members of the class of " 66. Living in " the city of speed " didn ' t leave much of a mark on Pete. He never rushed into anything but always managed to come out on top. Without doubt, his favorite pastime was sleeping. He did, however, par- ticipate in sports and earned a letter with the 150 pound football team. Labeled as one of the " greatest little line- backers in the game today " he was a mainstay in the defensive line. His leadership potential carried over from the field, where he called the defensive signals; Pete demonstrated this quality both on the Plebe Summer De- tail and during academic year. Always willing to lend a helping hand, Pete proved himself a true leader and man of unlimited patience and capabilities; admired by all and disliked by none this - " True Gentleman " is a bolster to our Navy and country. 417 EDWARD KELLY PULSIFER BEVERLY THOMAS RICHARDSON ULF WILHELM RUNQUIST EDWARD KELLY PULSIFER Beaumont. Texas Kelly came to the Academy from the Sovereign State of Texas. While his friends at home had been rustling cattle and going to rodeos. Kelly was close to the sea making fast friends with King Neptune. This same quest for professional knowledge and his deep love of the sea followed him to the banks of the Severn. Kelly quickly established a reputation for fine seamanship in the Sailing Squadron, while still finding time for company sports activities in softball. basketball, football, and cross-country. Kelly ' s devotion to principle, his Irish-spirit, quick smile, and love of friendship will insure his recognition as a fine officer. BEVERLY THOMAS RICHARDSON Odenton, Maryland Tom is another product from Columbia Prep who got his start in Tennessee. After getting acclimated to the reg- imentation and academics plebe year he has shown him- self to be a hard worker. He has played a variety of sports demonstrating outstanding competitive spirit, but the sports he had always wanted to play will have to be left up to his " little " brothers. As for girls, he has had great success in meeting them, especially at Academy sponsored dances. His friendly and outgoing personality has made him many lasting friends here and should help him in the future as a Naval officer. ULF WILHELM RUNQUIST Croton-on-Hudson, Neiv York A true example of the American success story, Ulf came to the United States at an early age from Sweden, his birthplace. Once in this country Ulf easily adopted the American way of life without ever losing the continental touch. Coming to us from his new hometown of Croton, New York, Ulf has done remarkably well in every field of endeavor, excelling in Uterature, sleeping and being chited by the steam department. An avid fan of the good life, he has taken every obstacle in stride. If wit, talent and ambition are the keys to success Ulf will open the doors to the future and attain that success. THEODORE CLARK SEWARD Mankato, Minnesota After whizzing through two years at Mankato State Col- lege, Ted entered the Naval Academy with a head start on academics; he managed the transition from civilian to plebe equally as well. Ted ' s extracurricular activities varied from interests in the Foreign Relations and Scuba clubs to obtaining a private pilot ' s license in his spare time. In the sports area, Ted enjoyed participating in tennis and ' squash, but his real love was soccer, and his enthusiasm certainly qualifies him for the title of " Andy Capp " of Company soccer. Ted couldn ' t be better qualified for a career in Naval Aviation, and his room was constantly besieged with plebes seeking answers to questions on Naval Aviation. His lively sense of humor and conscientious attitude will insure his success as a Naval officer. MICHAEL JAMES SWEENEY Randallstown, Maryland The Navy received one of its finest Naval officers when Mike came to the Naval Academy from Baltimore Poly- 418 FOURTH BATTALION TNA ENTY- SECOND COMPANY THEODORE CLARK SEWARD MICHAEL JAMES SWEENEY olliiiaioi technic Institute. Academics never gave him any trouble as he was continually on the Superintendent ' s List. Being sold on soccer, Mike worked hard for a well-earned berth on the plebe team. He also added his ability to the savage- ness of the Company fieldball team. Youngster year found Mike with stars: Academic stars and the long awaited and dreamed of " N " Star. Second Class year, in spite of a serious knee injury, aggressiveness and de- termination made him a part of The National Champion- ship Soccer Team. His outstanding qualities of fairness, reliability and determination found him elected to the class Vice-Presidency. Along with his tremendous smile and arresting personality, he was well liked by all of his classmates. O.C.U. and N.A.C.A. supplied the moral and reUgious faith that he strived for. Mike built many strong friendships that will last through the years. He will cer- tainly be a valuable asset to the Navy and his country. RICHARD GILMORE WILMES Ferguson, Missouri The " Show-Me " kid left the banks of the Mississippi River and promptly began to " show everyone " at the Academy that his past record of excellence was a true indication of his ability. Rich mastered all the challenges presented by the often hectic routine at USNA, and his flair for planning ahead and organizing his work was evidenced by his constant appearance on the Superin- tendent ' s List. Rich proved to be a prime example of the old adage, ' " When the going gets tough, the tough get going, " for the more difficult his studies, the better his grades. Rich devoted his many athletic talents to the RICHARD GILMORE WILMES Company sports teams, by playing a workhorse role for the soccer, football, and tennis teams. His early training in and around St. Louis served him well, for he was a tough character in any situation. Yet this hard-nosed quality could be melted by those frequent letters from his favorite female friend back home, and the girls he dated around here never seemed td complain. A leader capable of the greatest responsibilities, his personality, intelligence, and desire will assure Rich of future success. 419 SECOND CLASSMEN Back Row.- J. H. Quinlan, R. L. Kimer, W. C.

DENMS BAKER Compton, CalijoTnia Dennis entered the Naval Academy by means of a Con- gressional appointment from his hometown of Compton, California. Another proud Californian, Denny excelled in high school basketball and baseball, lettering in both for 3 years. This athletic prowess later enabled him to become a mainstay on Company and Battalion intramural athletic teams during his four years at the Naval Acad- emy. A better than average student, Denny never had trouble with academics and has taken part in many extra- curricular activities. After graduation he hopes to win his wings at Pensacola and pursue a career in Naval Aviation. TIMOTHY ROBERT BEARD Mansfield, Ohio Tim came to the Naval Academy from Mansfield, Ohio. At Mansfield Senior High he lettered in both swimming and tennis. Although Tim had his problems with plebe year, these were all ended when he went out for the plebe swimming team. Once the season started, he earned enough carry-on to last him until the second week of summer cruise. After plebe year, Tim was a mainstay for the varsity team where he won his " N " and was a member of the " N " club. He worked hard to master his academic problems, but when he was not studying, he could be found dancing around the room to keep in practice for his upcoming weekends. Tim Jias shown an interest in Naval Aviation; however, no matter what field he goes into, he will continue to work hard and be a credit to the Service. DAVID SPENCER BILL, HI Norjolk, Virginia " Longball " came to the Naval Academy from St. Ste- phen ' s High in Alexandria, Virginia, where he was all state in everything. His athletic prowess remained with him throughout his career as a midshipman. He was a standout on the varsity baseball team and a good point- getter for the company cross-country team. His grades were excellent — especially considering the short amount of time he spent preparing his studies. Lest this be another " he was a grand guy and we all felt we knew him " biography, a word must be inserted concerning his Friday night activities. In some dim-lit smoke filled room in a remote corner of Mother Bancroft, Longball was willing to ride all he had on two pair. He was a gambler, the kind of guy you would want in your foxhole, and it was a privilege to have served with him.

New York. While at the Academy, he has accom- plished many things, not the least of which is his per- fection of the Boyhan Method of Painless Study in preparation for his tests; to the amazement of his friends, he consistently gets good grades by sleeping in order to keep his mind " unencumbered by facts. " His fierce deter- mination is displayed on the rugby field each spring, in bed each winter, and in his love for such sports as scuba diving and hunting. An ardent supporter of Navy athletics, he can always be counted on to cheer hard for the Big Blue teams. Tom ' s strong religious convictions are shown by his faithful attendance at the Chapel each Sunday morning. Whatever branch of the Navy Tom chooses, whe- ther it be Naval Aviation, the Marines, or NPQ. he is sure to be an unqualified success. ANTHONY WAYNE BROOMALL Montclair, New Jersey Tony, better known to his classmates as " Brooms, " .came to the Academy directly from Montclair High, Montclair, New Jersey. Winning three football letters in high school, Tony was a member of a grid team that took the New Jersey State Championship and, his senior year, he was chosen to the All Eastern Scholastic Squad by the New York press. It is not surprising that he haa- been an important asset to Navy ' s plebe and varsity football squads. Except for a slight brush with the Language Department plebe year, Tony had no problems with academics. In spite of his busy schedule, Tony, always found time to assist classmates in need of help. Special- izing in Mathematics and Systems Engineering he showed his academic prowess by earning stars. After spending four years in the upjjer rack. Tony plans to continue his career in Naval Aviation. THOMAS EUGENE BRUNK Gallup, New Mexico Tom, coming from Gallup, New Mexico, spent a valuable year at New Mexico Military Institute in preparation for the Academy. During his high school days, he excelled in academics, as well as in football and track. After don- ning the Navy blue, Tom was quick to develop many last- ing friendships and found smooth sailing at the Academy. The Academic Department was no great obstacle to him,- as seen by his Superintendent ' s List, and at times. Star average. Tom, a participant in the elective system, se- lected Mechanical Engineering for his major, yet always found time to help a friend in need. Known as " Desert Rat " by his classmates, he fought a never ending battle with swimming but managed to keep his head above water, if only barely. Having a wide variety of interests, he ran the gauntlet of sports from lightweight football to Battalion gymnastics. His loyalty and desire to do the best that he can, promises for him a very bright career in the Service of his choice. ROSS JUSTIN DOUBLEDAY Arlington, Virginia Ross came to the Academy from Arlington. Virginia, where he graduated from high school, lettering in both football and wrestling.

Being a Chicago boy, he found the Annapolis night life somewhat lacking, but he man- aged the switch without much trouble. Howie did not have any problem making good grades, and he was on the Superintendent ' s List every semester. He carried elective courses to ontain majors in mathe- matics and physics. However, not being one to burn himself out studying, he developed a mean free path the width of his mattress. He participated in the French Club, the Foreign Relations Club, and the Log, and he under- took an ambitious outside reading program. For athletics, he found his .sport in the intramural boxing program. Howie ' s fine wit, quick mind, and amiable personality will stand him in good stead throughout his career. JOHN HARRIES HILTABIDLE Silver Spring. Maryland John entered the Academy after completing his career at Northwood High School in Silver Spring, Maryland, where he was an outstanding wrestler. From the time he began his Academy career, John never ceased to display his natural leadership talents. His industriousness gained him the respect of all his classmates.

DENNIS DONNELLY WILEY JACKSON Watertoiim, Massachusetts Don graduated from Our Lady ' s High in Newton, Mass.. and, following a year in prep school, decided to take the plunge. He carried his exuberance in social activities into life at USNA and quickly made fast friends with all who came into contact with him. Having sus- tained a football injury in his plebe year, he settled down to become a stalwart in Battalion and Company lacrosse, football, and soccer. After excelling in mathematics while in high school, Don naturally had an interest in science and higher math, and could usually be found during overload period stalking the halls of these departments. In one word. Don might be described as a " joiner. " He participated in nearly every activity at the academy, in- cluding Scuba club, reception committee, Newman club. Lucky Bag staff, and juice gang. During weekends, he spent his time in the company of some young lady and could be found wherever there was activity. A really great guy, he is a person of whom we can al- ways be happily associated with as a classmate. Which- ever aspect of the Navy Don decides to take up, the Navy can be proud to welcome a fine officer.

Fred endeavored to obtain a major in both, and is pointing towards Nuclear Power School upon gradua- tion. Always willing to lend a helping hand. Fred has made his tenure at the Naval Academy a fruitful one. PURDUE UNIVERSITY ' GRADUATE STUDY Computer Science VERNON MOHNEY MORGAN Houston, Texas Vern came to the Academy from Stephen F. Austin High School in Houston, Texas, where he was active on both the swimming and tennis teams. A red-blooded Texan throughout, his warm personality and outgoing manner never ceased to place him in high esteem with his class- mates. At home on any athletic field, Vern was active in company sports and was a standout on the Plebe 150 pound crew team. Academics were never a problem for Vern, as he maintained a Superintendent ' s List average throughout his academic career. His Texas drawl seemed to attract females by the dozens but he successfully re- mained unattached to anyone in particular. ' ' Morgs, " as Vem was affectionately dubbed by his close friends, always was ready and willing to lend a helping hand to a classmate. The Naval Service will gain a dedicated and loyal officer upon Vern ' s graduation. DALE HOPKLNS MOSES Kingston, Pennsylvania From Sea Explorers on L«ng Island Sound, to Navy Line on the High Seas, Dale has been a " Black Shoe " all the way. Coming to the Academy from Wyoming Seminary Prep School in Kingston, Pennsylvania, he had a con- stant goal of the Blue and Gold, and with a five-year undergraduate course, managed to keep just ahead of the Academic Departments. Battalion sports, BAC, and Re- ception Committee during the year, and surfing or ski- ing at any time possible, claimed a sizeable portion of his extra time. Since Dale preferred a bugle to an M-1, he was a " Hellcat " since Plebe Summer, and many a ORLAND JAMES PENDER. JR. chill October evening would find him under the lights on Farragut Field getting ready for the Corps ' next halftime show. Dragging was no problem either — the freedoms of travel and bachelor life were too enjoyable to be soon lost. When Dale pins on his ensign bars, the Navy will be getting a staunch supporter, and the fleet, a fine and capable officer. ORLAND JAMES PENDER, JR. Atlanta, Georgia Coming directly to the Academy from Briarcliff High School in Atlanta, Jim found little trouble with academ- ics. Since youngster year, he has regularly participated in the overload program, choosing courses that would help him toward a major in Naval Management. On the athletic field, he is usually found in the midst of a rough and tumble game. Since a knee injury forced him out of football plebe year, Jim has been a leader in bringing rugby to the Academy ' s sports program. A rugged com- petitor, whether on an athletic field or in his everyday life, Jim will be a welcome addition to the Navy as a future Naval aviator. 427 FOURTH BATTALI ON T WENT Y-TH I R D COMPANY STEPHEN CONRAD POHER DON SHANNON PUCKETT " Coach! ! " STEPHEN CONRAD POTTER Seattle, Washinc ton This delightful enigma came to us from Seattle. Wash- ington, where he attended high school, the University of Washington, and served briefly in the Naval Reserve. His conversion to the Naval Academy way of life may well stand as the least painful in the history of the institution, for Steve ' s radiant good nature invariably enabled him to circumvent every obstacle, frequently without effort. Four years proved Steve indeed a unique personality, for he not only did well in everything, but he enjoyed doing it. a fact which, at the very least, puzzled us all. Steve cannot help but enlighten the many people he will en- counter, and they too are destined to be confounded, wondering just how this happy soul has managed to find all of life to be, at best, no great dilemma. DON SHANNON PUCKETT Midland, Texas Don came to USNA from Midland, Texas, where he graduated from Robert E. Lee High School. At Lee, he not only excelled in the classroom, but was outstanding on the baseball diamond as well. Through constant drive and hard work he maintained these same high standards at the Naval Academy. You could walk into his room any time of the day and find him behind his desk with his nose in a book. His determination is no less displayed on the baseball team where he drives himself to achieve greater perfection and has been one of the real mainstays on the team. To his friends he is known as an affable, easygoing guy, with a Southern drawl, who is always happy to do a favor for anyone. " Whatever field he chooses upon graduation. Don can ' t miss being a success. il DAVID WILSON RICHARDSON STEVEN DAVID SHRAWDER RONALD EARL SMITH DAVID WILSON RICHARDSON Miami, Florida Born in Sanford. Florida, Dave came to us from Naples, Italy, Miami, Florida, San Diego, California, Nor- folk, Virginia, and so on. The remarkable thing is that all of his " homes " left their marks on him. The moving about instilled in him ein Wunderlust that proved a bit difficult to overcome, being confined to the Hall. Aca- demics were no problem, save in the Department of Engineering which didn ' t care about the advantages of island life in the Archipelago, and insisted furlongs per fortnight were not satisfactory as a measure of velocity. He loved skin diving but took a major in Oceanography — skin diving was not offered. He had a caustic wit and remarkable sense of perception. He read a great deal more Kipling and Coleridge than was recommended by The Powers, and consequently got a great deal more out of the four years than did most. A bit cynical, a bit romantic, a bit quixotic, he remained ' ' Brodier Dave " to his classmates and always had time to " talk of many things. " Knowing him was an education. He has a great deal to offer life and those about him. STEVEN DAVID SHRAWDER Millersbiirg, Pennsylvania Steve came to the Academy from Millersburg, Pennsyl- vania, where he had an outstanding athletic record. He was Captain, All-Conference, and Most Valuable Player on his high school team. He also played basketball, base- ball, and competed in the high jump, broad jump, and relays for the track team. He attended Bullis Prep for a year where he captained the gridders and played first base for the Bullis nine. Steve played first team right half on the plebe team and has seen considerable action with the varsity. During the off season he leads the company fieldball team. Steve ' s natural ability to get along with other people, coupled with his winning spirit, will insure his success in anything he undertakes. RONALD EARL SMITH Amarillo, Texas Ron came to the Naval Academy after attending Amarillo Junior College, the University of Texas, and serving a short stretch in the Marine Corps. He encoun- tered no trouble in handling the academic departments toughest challenges. An outstanding student of the hu- manities, he achieved excellence in all literature and history courses. He majored in Literature, but being a practical man, realized he had to make a living as well as enjoy life, so he took an additional major in Manage- ment. He participated actively in the Foreign Relations Club, the German Club, and the Antiphonal Choir. Ron was an excellent example of " sound body, sound mind, " but he definitely believed that man was bom to walk erectly upon the earth and not inhabit a watery environ- ment. With a dynamic personality, Smitty was an out- standing conversationalist who was always ready to dis- cuss anything from current affairs to Greek mythology. He loved to visit, and it was not an uncommon sight to see him coming through your door with a coffee mug in hand and a smile on his face. To know him was to marvel at what made him the unique and complex indi- vidual he was. Whatever course Smitty chooses in life, he will excel because of his determination that be can do any job better than the next man. 429 LAURENCE RICHARD STOTT JAMES VINCENT SULLIVAN JR. ROYCE DONALD TAYLOR LAURENCE RICHARD STOTT Detroit, Michigan The first tiling you would notice about Laurie is his soft-spoken, gentlemanly manner. Soon, you would see how quick minded and perceptive he is. And in a very short time, you would be impressed by his sincerity and friendliness. Laurie has taken many jibes about the groove in the deck from his door to his mattress, but he has accom- plished a great deal. He has established an outstanding academic record, with a major in mathematics. Laurie has taught himself to play the banjo with sufficient skill to thoroughly impress the friends that were driven off during his first weeks of discordant strumming. He has managed to keep warm in the winter by participating in varsity fencing. Laurie has found time for considerable independent reading. He has used his weekends well and wisely, often in his MGB. And, he has always been an interesting participant in after dinner conversations, being particularly noted for his quick wit. Laurie came to the Naval Academy from high school in Detroit. He plans a career in Naval Aviation. Laurie ' s friendly way, bright mind, and fine sense of humor will make him a welcome addition to that field. JAMES VINCENT SULLIVAN JR. Baltimore, Maryland Jim came to Annapolis from Baltimore ' s Loyola High School after four years of both atliletic and academic achievement. Acclimating himself to the Academy quickly. Sully was soon to be found on the athletic field. He par- ticipated in Plebe football. Varsity Lacrosse, and intra- mural football and softball. Interest and application to his studies deterred Jim from many extracurricular ac- tivities but he still found time for membership in the Newman Club, and for dragging as often as possible. His post-graduate interests lie in the field of aviation, with NFO especially in mind. A hard and industrious worker, Jim is a.ssured of success as a future fleet officer. ROYCE DONALD TAYLOR Murjreesboro, Tennessee Royce chose to leave his home in Murfreesboro, Ten- nessee, to attend the Academy. That easy life on the farm seemed to prime him for his academics; the less he seemed to study, the better his grades. This combination allowed him to sleep his way onto the Supt ' s List. How- ever, he took a determined and aggressive attitude into all of his athletics. He survived his boxing career at the price of a well-mutilated nose. His mild temperament and mule-headed stubbornness were his most valuable assets. He was never a hypocrite, doing exactly what he wanted to and saying whatever came to mind. Navy Air will receive a fine officer in Royce. KEITH ADAIR WAGNER New London. Connecticut Keith made his first decision of his Naval career when he passed up a chance to go to the Coast Guard Acad- emy, where his father was Commandant of Cadets. Once here, he scored his first success in the Dago Depart- ment, validating the language course. He immediately made the second big decision of his life and signed up for a French Major. Never a man of a technical turn of mind. Keith often found steam and skinny a bit vague. To his distress, these departments occasionally found him wanting also, but they failed to prevent him from main- taining a creditable grade level. After school hours Keith would often devote to his activities. Whether it was pre- paring a Sunday School lesson or polishing up the latest issue of The Log, Keith has shown that he can always get the job done. And yet. he was always able to find and put to good use more free time than one would expect could be found in his crowded routine. Free time to Keidi was either time to drag or time to keep up his volumi- nous correspondence. Graduation day will mark the be- ginning of a much desired and well deserved career. And to the Navy it will mark the acquisition of a dedicated and competent officer. 430 ? FOURTH BATTALION T WENT Y-TH I R D COMPANY KEITH ADAIR WAGNER GEORGE MARTIN WRIGHT ijwl GEORGE MARTIX WRIGHT Silver Spring. Maryland George was born in the Academy hospital, and came back seventeen years later as a plebe. In the years be- tween, he lived in Silver Spring. Maryland, and graduated from the Priory School where he was very active in Dramatics. He was also a wild sax player, and he brought his talent to the Academy and the Spiffys. No one could remember a costume hop without George and his sax helping to liven up the evening. Taking a major, he could be found at almost any random moment buried in one of his many overload books. Even so. he always made time, to relax for a few minutes with either his guitar, banjo, recorder, saxophone, or flute. No one was easier to get along mth than George, and whenever he did get ruffled, you knew that something was really wrong. He was always trying to better himself, and this drive brought him to jump school at Fort Benning. Georgia, during summer leave of second class year. He was named the honor student of his class, a distinction that no other Midshipman had ever earned before, and he proudly wore his jump wings. His " study hour uni- form " included a Marine utility cap with the wings promi- nently displayed. His ambition after graduation is to go to Nuclear Power School, the start of a career that can " help but be a happy one. both for him and the men working with him. WILLIAM M. ZONDORAK WILLIA: I M. ZONDORAK Fnlrfax, Virginia Bill ' s first few days at the Academy were filled with apprehension, and rightly so, for the midshipmen ' s store was hard pressed to find clothes large enough to fit him. His initial discomfort was brief, however, and Bill, through the foresight of the NAAA. was soon restored to his jovial self. Once he and Navy football had become sufficiently involved in each other, Bill ' s adjustment problems dis- appeared entirely, and the Academy gained one of its greatest admirers. On the academic front. Bill was equally willing to apply himself. His desire to squeeze all that he possibly could out of four years of study impressed his less ambitious classmates, and his accomplishment in numerous additional electives testifies to his success. Many of us will long remember and admire this most happy fellow, for Bill ' s remarkable affability has won, and will continue to win him countless lifetime friends. 43! SECOND CLASSMEN Back Row: D.

His academic and -athletic abilities carried him through in fine style. A pleasant personality and pleasing smile are attributes many lack, hut it wasn ' t so with Ed. He never refused a helping hand to anyone who asked for it. A dedicated man. striving always to improve himself. With the record that he has made. Ed can be proud of his four years and can look forward to a fine career as an officer in the Navy. ANDREW COULTER ARJE Xen York City, Neiv York Andv was born in the state of California but considers himself a New Yorker. As a Navy junior, he has lived in and seen a great many places. After a year at NAPS, he brought to L ' SNA a devotion to the Navy which has not diminished. " Barge " played intramural sports with relish and determination, especially Batt football and company fieldball. A man of many interests, Andy was known to enjoy a good argument on any subject but history was his favorite; he always found it hard to put that textbook down. His devotion to the Naval Service will make him a welcome addition to anv service he chooses. GLINN GERRIE CLARK Mystic, Iowa After finishing high school in Iowa. " Hud " decided to take his first look at the sea by coming to Navy. A three sport letterman at Centerville High, Guinn was a wel- comed addition to any sports squad. He is best remem- bered for the many sleepless nights he spent bent over his typewriter meeting a deadline as business manager of the Lucky Bag. He still found time to devote to aca- demics; and even managed to master extra courses. The weekends were his, however; and he did his best to acquaint tile ladies of the East with his midwestern charm. Guinn won many friends with his pleasant manner, while his perseverance and determination were amply wit- nessed by his many accomplishments. Armed with these attributes, the Paul Newman of Navy looks forward to a rewarding career in Naval Aviation. FOURTH BATTALION TWENTY- FOURTH COMPANY 435 |P ' m- 9 1 - ' - Wi W (. ' 1- V -01-1- ■- A CLARK RUSSELL COOPER JOHN RISTON FORSYTHE JAMES DAVID HALL CLARK RUSSELL COOPER Santa Rosa. CaUjomia Before coming to USNA, Coop had established himself primarily as a scholar. In fact, he out-studied his class- mates to become top man of his high school graduating class. But then came the transition to college, military life, plebe year, and. worst of all for Clark, the end of co-educational classes. As a result, he found the opposite sex to be much more educational and interesting than academics and Academy life. This does not mean that Clark ' s academics were low. He applied himself as much as necessary, which was generally more than enough. Coop ' s athletic endeavors were similar in that when he applied himself, he did well. His consistently high marks in phys- ical training give evidence to his personal doctrine of stay- ing in condition. A variety of interests somewhat compli- cates his post-graduation plans, but he will undoubtedly be recognized as a credit to any profession he chooses. JOHN RISTON FORSYTHE Port Washini lon, Long Island, IXeic York After proving himself in track, basketball and football at his high school in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. John worked hard for four years to make his name known on the varsity track team. The track season was marked by many pulled muscles and tired legs, but John worked to make himself one of the fastest men at the Academy. In the field house and in Bancroft Hall, John ' s likeable personality and keen sense of humor won him many last- ing friendships. Academics seldom posed too great a prob- lem to John who managed to keep himself on the Super- intendent ' s List for the better part of his time at the Acad- emy. This quality, combined with his attitude toward the Navy, has made John a credit to the Brigade and capable of doing an outstanding job in whichever part of the Navy he should decide to enter. JAMES DAVID HALL Fort Sill, Oklahoma Jim has lived in many various localities and countries including Germany and Japan. This inborn, nomadic nature, combined with Jim ' s nonchalant handling of the tender sex. indicated a roving future. Besides being an ostensibly confirmed bachelor, Jim was also an extremely devoted athlete. He enjoyed meeting new challenges and rose to them easily; the ever-present and most challenging obstacle of all being the rigorous academic curriculum faced by all midshipmen. In the intramural program. Jim contributed his talents to both light-weight football and cross country and proved an asset to the company in both events. Athletic excellence came easily to Jim as he took great pride in his physical condition, constantly striving to improve himself. Enthusiasm, a good nature, and devotion to duty are all characteristics which will insure Jim ' s success wherever his career may take him. JOSEPH JOHN HASSON Brooklyn, New York Joe came to the Academy from Brooklyn, New York, but making the adjustment to military life proved to be no problem to him. Always on the Superintendent ' s List and never without stars, Joe has stood high in his class, as well as in the esteem of his classmates, since joining us. Highly regarded by all. they have taken full advan- tage of his good nature and academic prowess by bring- ing their unsolvable problems to him for solution. His goal 436 FOURTH BATTALION TNA ENTY- FOURTH COMPANY JOSEPH JOHN HASSON HENRY FRANCIS HERRERA has been to obtain two majors before graduation, and he is well on the road to success in attaining this end. Being a fond admirer of the diplomatic approach, his special interest has always been right around the corner. On tlie athletic level, he seemed to be a big slash, devoting most of his time to water follies. His demonstrated ability and avid interest point to a very successful future. HENRY FRANCIS HERRERA Miami Springs, Florida Hailing from Miami Springs, Florida, via Coral Gables High School. The Ransom School, and Mt. Herman School. Hank came to the Naval Academy with a fluency in Spanish which enabled him to achieve a Spanish major at the end of his youngster year. He was active in the Spanish Club and wore stars for his academic proficiency. Hank ' s athletic prowess enabled him to be a member of the plebe swim team and, subsequently, he became var- sity swim team manager. Hank was a very conscientious midshipman and should make a fine career Naval officer if his present aspirations materialize. A quick wit. Hank rarely failed to play along with or invent a joke to lighten the tension at the proper moment. EUGENE JOSEPH HOLLER Neuark, New Jersey Gene, a product of Newark, New Jersey, exemplifies the traditional ideal of the thrifty Irish. A non-conformist in some respects, Gene has been the brunt of many a friendly argument. He has managed to thrive on the life of a midshipman, finding the pay adequate, the food excellent, and the academics easy. An avid reader, one is most likely to find Gene completely engrossed in some book (non-academic, of course) busily puffing away on his pipe. Gene could do a smashing impersonation of a EUGENE JOSEPH HOLLER " steam prof " and provided many an evening ' s entertain- ment eulogizing those august experts on the realms of the mystic. Not particularly ruffled by even the most tense situations, Gene has been able to survive surprise quizzes, P-works, and final exams. Gene served two years as a " white hat " prior to entering the Academy and as a result, was constantly besieged with fourth classmen at- tempting to find answers to professional questions. With his ready wit and willingness to please. Gene should do a fine job no matter what task he is assigned. 437 FOURTH BATTALION TWENTY- FOURTH COMPANY WILLIAM LEWIS JEREMIAH JAMES RICHARD LEVINSON PETER S. LOTHROP WILLIAM LEWIS JEREMIAH Cohasset, Massachusetts Jerry made his home in Cohasset, Mass., where he attended Cohasset High School. While in high school, Jerry starred on the school ' s basketball and football teams while engaging in many extracurricular activities which included being president of his class. Upon graduating, Jerry came to the Naval Academy, where, although not participating in varsity athletics, he was .an outstanding member of both Battalion and company sports. Jerry ' s interest in academics lay mainly in mathematics, at which he was most proficient. Jerry was known as an easygoing soul, well liked by his classmates. Jerry overcame his mishaps with the Executive Department and he adjusted to the discipline of Navy life. His continued progress in storming barriers will be an asset to him in the Fleet, where Jerry will no doubt prove himself a aluabie officer. JAMES RICHARD LEVINSON Benson. North Carolina Jim grew up and went to high school in Benson. N.C., where he lettered in football, basketball, and baseball, and stood second in his class in academics. Though originally planning to follow his ancestors in the field of law. Jim switched his loyalties from the courtroom to the ward- room and a career in the service of the Blue and Gold. He got an early start on his sea legs as a member of the Y.P. Squadron. Jim was also a fierce competitor in soccer and lightweight football on the company level, and won many friends with his quick wit and fine sense of humor; nor did hardly a weekend pass when Jim was not to be seen acquainting some young lovely with the Academy surroundings. Jim ' s membership in the French Club proved useful on his youngster cruise to Quebec, Canada. Because of his likeable personality and determined spirit, Jim will surely be a great success in the Fleet. PETER S. LOTHROP Rethesda, Maryland Pete ' s high school days were spent in Bethesda, Mary- land, where he played golf and lacrosse. He continued to develop prowess in these sports by becoming a member of the Navy ' s plebe golf squad and the Battalion lacrosse team. Pete also took up the game of squash upon entering the Academy and became a real asset to Battalion teams; he was also a good man with a soccer ball. When Pete got away from the athletic fields, he could be found dating in the yard or on the dance floor at a hop; he was well accomplished in both categories. His endless sense of humor proved to be a boundless source of hilarity. Pete ' s hard working attitude and likeable per- sonality will serve him in good stead in the Fleet. Whether he goes Navy Line or Naval Aviation, he will be a welcome member and an outstanding leader. JAMES BERKELEY iVIcLENDON Roanoke, Virginia Mac came right out of high school in Roanoke. Vir- ginia, and has never ceased letting us know that the South hasn ' t surrendered, yet. Whether or not he can convince us of this, he does have the ability to talk. He was the first plebe to win the Brigade Oratorical Contest and the first man ever to win it twice in a row. Also along this 438 JAMES BERKELEY McLENDON BENNETTE DEAN McGRAW CHARLES ALLEN MARTINEK jni ' l " line, Mac has been an active member of the iVIasqueraders. These activities haven ' t taken all of his time, however. He has managed to find time to be a member of the varsity sailing team as well as one of the hardest workers on the Brigade Hop Committee and Ring Dance Com- mittee. If you have ever walked into his room and taken a look around, you know what his career plans are. Mac will make a fine addition to Naval Aviation. BENNETTE DEAN McGRAW Sacramento, Calijornia Prior to his arrival at USNA . Ben attended Sacramento Senior High School where he lettered in tennis. The " ole Swashbuckler " then joined the Navy and became an electronics technician, having been through boot camp, ET school, a tour of duty at Whidbey Iskind, and the course of instruction at the Naval Academy Preparatory School in only twenty-three months. Ben, a real rackefman. has helped bolster the record of many a squash and tennis team on both the Battalion and Company level, also faring well on the plebe tennis squad. His academic abilities were on par with his per- sonality and aggressiveness toward his duties. The future is hazy, but no matter what line of duty he chooses, he will be a welcome addition to the Navy family. Ben ' s a number one man in any book. CHARLES ALLEN MARTINEK South Bound Brook. New Jersey Charlie, a native of New Jersey, came to the Academy after a year at Clarkson College of Technology in New York. He was a standout in plebe summer wrestling, the beginning of an interesting and varied athletic career in varsity and intramural sports. Academics came easy to Charlie, except for a brief struggle with organic chem- istry; he often enjoyed the benefits of Superintendent ' s List liberty. When not engaged in his studies, Charlie could be found in the pad or in a game of " hearts. " No stranger to the opposite sex, he frequently narrowly escaped the embarrassment of having two drags at the same time. Charlie ' s good natured attitude and rugged competitiveness will be an asset in whatever branch of the Navy he chooses. BURKE PROGRAM DEAN HOLMES MATZKO DEAN HOLMES MATZKO Springfield, Virginia Leaving familiar Penn State University, Dean came to USNA on an ROTC appointment, having spent several years in Germany while his father was stationed there; he then moved back to North Springfield, Virginia. Dur- ing the winter sets. Dean was an outstanding member of Company lightweight football teams. Though he usually had problems trying to make weight for the sport, he always proved that he felt it was worth the effort. His other fortes were softball and cross-country. At the end of youngster year, Dean qualified for the option plan and began the long road toward learning a Portuguese major. But this trial also attested to the fact that if there were a job to be done. Deano could do it. Dean is at present unsure of his future, but his OAO in Athens, Ohio, will not be easily forgotten. Whatever service finally manages to snag Dean, they will find in him a hard worker and a conscientious officer — a valuable asset to any team. 439 FOURTH BATTALION TWENTY- FOURTH COMPANY PHILLIP GERALD NORTON PHILLIP GERALD NORTON Brookhn, New York WILLIAM MICHAEL RADCUFFE Phil originally called Brooklyn, New York, his home. After attending Brooklyn Technical High School he joined the Naval Reserve, from whence he went to Co- lumbian Preparatory School in Washington, D.C. Phil was an outstanding athlete in basketball and football, both at Tech and Columbian. Upon entering the Acad- emy, he continued his successful football career. Phil started on both the plebe and varsity teams, fulfilling his biggest dream his second class year by starting in the traditional Army-Navy game. Besides football, Phil also proved his athletic excellence by taking up the sport of lacrosse and playing on the plebe and varsity squads. Phil ' s easy manner, acquired on the playing field, and his will to succeed, will both prove valuable to him as he joins another fighting team. WILLIAM MICHAEL RADCLIFFE Prospect Park, Pennsylvania Bill came to USNA straight from Episcopal Academy in Philadelphia, Penn., where he had been a standout on the basketball team. After overcoming the obstacles of plebe year, he continued to center his interests in basket- ball and greatly enhanced the Navy team. When not in season, he actively supported Company aiftl Battalion sports and displayed an interest in Academy functions as a member of the Brigade Activities Committee. Aside from these interests, his other endeavors consisted of seeing how much sleep he could accumulate in anv one day. Along with a marked interest in the service lite, his mild manner, friendliness, and ability to remain calm in any situation will be of great value as he pursues his career in the Navy upon graduation. 440 ,as WARREN ADDISON RAWSON, JR. i fc ALAN MICHAEL ROODHOUSE WARREN ADDISON RAWSON, JR. Rochester, New York Rusty came directly to the Academy after attending Rochester ' s Eastridge High School. Lack of jsrevious college experience proved to be no problem for him, as witnessed by the fact that he humbled the Skinny depart- ment by standing first in his class in plebe chemistry. Rusty ' s name could always be found on the Superin- tendent ' s List at the close of a semester. Academics did not occupy all of his time, however. He spent nwny hard hours working on the Naval Academy Debate Team. He was rewarded for his efforts by numerous trips to debate tournaments, compiling a fine record. On weekends. Rusty could often be found dragging; very few sunny Sunday afternoons passed that did not find him on Thompson Field engaged in a game of touch football. With his ability to cope with the challenges of the Academic De- partment, Rusty has the potential to enrich Navy ' s Nu- clear Power program. Whatever his field is, with his ability to get along with other people and his desire to excel, Rusty will certainly make a fine officer. ALAN MICHAEL ROODHOUSE Palo Alio, California Al came to the Academy from Palo Alto, California, where he was a star athlete in football and baseball for Bellarmine High School. One of the few men to play on both the first team offense and first team defense during this second class year, " Roods, " as he was called by his teammates, was one of the real hustlers on the Big Blue football team. Whether it came to fieldball or basketball, Al could always be counted on to support his Company ' s athletic teams. Though often engrossed in making plans for the next weekend ' s drag or writing that special girl, he still found time for his studies as his stars gave wit- ness. The leadership he showed on the second class sum- mer detail indicated his potential as a Naval officer. His affability has won him an abundance of friends and his aggressiveness cannot help but benefit both him and the Navy. These traits, along with a conscientious attitude, will be appreciated in any service circle. 441 ROBERT TRACY SANDERS RICHARD FRANK SILLOWAY BRUCE NORMAN TOUVE ROBERT TRACY SANDERS Fairlcss Hills. Pennsylvania Bob came to the Naval Academy as a well finished product of Pennsbury High School in Yardly. Pennsyl- vania. The athletic talents he carried with him followiii.;; his graduation from high school readily developed during plebe year. The consistency of his outstanding perform- ances on the wrestling mat resulted in his being named Outstanding Wrestler at the Coast Guard Tournament and pinning down the captaincy of the plebe team. Never a firm believer in the slide rule. Bob spent many a tense moment at the hands of the Engineering Department. Bob is a person who would never permit study hour to inter- fere with a good joke or a fifteen minute workout via the ancient art of pillow-fighting. Known for a lOO o effort and his sincere desire to make good. Bob will be a credit to the Navy in everything he does. RICHARD FRANK SILLOWAY Hnrlfonl, Connecticut Dick joined the ranks of the midshipmen at USNA after spending three years with the U.S. Marine Corps, including a tour aboard the cruiser USS LITTLE ROCK. Tliis experience proved invaluable, as Dick was a con- firmed Marine. Dick never failed to appear on the Super- intendent ' s List, his Stars attesting to his academic prow- ess. He studied diligently and, yet, was never too short of time to help a classmate. Dick was also actively engaged in the USNA Glee Club and Musical Show Club. In athletics, he participated in intramural sports, as one of the stalwarts of the Company soccer team and as an excellent squash player. Although Dick was always active- ly engaged in the academic, athletic, and extracurricular activities about the Academy, lie still found ample time to enjoy numerous weekends. His ability to face and overcome any challenge is an assurance that he will go far in any career he may choose. BRUCE NORMAN TOUVE Superior. Wisconsin Before coming to the Academy, Bruce spent a year at Wisconsin State College in his home town of Superior. His obvious affinity for Company sports placed him on various teams such as volleyball, cross-country, and light- weight football. Bruce is perhaps kno vn best for his various and constantly amusing uses of study periods, while at the same time maintaining his grades well above requirements. He is also known for his obvious love of liberty and leave; He could always be found in town over the weekends despite his consistently bad luck at finding a drag. He never let this discourage him, how- ever, preferring to follow Robert Bruce ' s maxim " try, try again. " Bruce ' s plans for the future include, as anyone who has talked to him can tell you, an obsession for Naval Aviation and an equally fervent desire to remain single. He will be a credit to the Fleet and to himself. REUBEN HOUSTON WALLACE. JR. Port Neches, Texas Wallv came to the Naval Academy right out of Port Neches High School where he was pretty much ' " Mr. Everything. " He followed through well here. His standard was " excellence. " and he made it. It was not an uncom- mon sight to see him bent over the books in the wee hours of the morning. He loved history and had an uncommon curiosity concerning the nature of our rare. Wally ' s easygoing Texas personalit made him immedi- 442 ,ik«« FOURTH BATTALION TWENTY- FOURTH COMPANY REUBEN HOUSTON WALLACE, JR. ARMAND AL ZEDDIES atelv popular with his classmates. He was a diplomat of the first degree. He could get a great deal done, and make it remarkably painless for those doing it. His only foe at Navy was the pool ' in MacDonough Hall. Wallv " s tremendous success at the Academy is readily attributable to his perceptive mind and ability to work hard. His success in later life will be largely due to his excellent personality and attitude. To know him is to like him immensely. ARMAND AL ZEDDIES PorteriiUe, Calijornia Butch came to USNA from the small town of Porter- ville, California. Leaving behind his red Jaguar and the carefree life, he came to the Academy to spend four years becoming an Ensign. Using the skill he acquired as a Varsity athlete in high school, he managed to earn a coveted varsity " N " for his work on the high bar in gymnastics. Everyone always knew when the gym team started its season, because Dutch ' s hands invariably be- came two big blisters. Butch had his problems with the Academic Departments but he merely tolerated them and never let studies interfere with his two favorite pastimes: assembling gear, such as stereo kits and speakers, and dreaming, about and designing the house he will build someday on the West Coast. Since early in plebe year, Butch has directed his ambitions toward Navy Wings of Gold. His fine sense of balance and his agility should help him to become one of the better Naval Aviators. ROBERT DALE ZVACEK North Bend, Nebraska From the plains of Nebraska, the shore of Waikiki, and the books at Bainbridge, Bob joined the class of 1966 and began his fourth year of Navy life. Plebe year ROBERT DALE ZVACEK found him out among the thin clads where he was unde- feated in the high jump. After plebe year, he devoted his all state basketball talents to the Company and Bat- talion teams and tore up the handball courts with his smashing drives. Not one to forsake his athletic prowess when he left the playing field. Bob developed a dive that covered the distance between the door and his pad in the shortest possible time.

G, » ' " GEORGE MACNIDER BATES San Diego, California After moving from place to place throughout the world as a Navy junior, it was fitting that George should come to the Academy to begin his naval career. Constantly waging a war with the academic departments, he always managed to finish each semester with a smile and renewed determination. During afternoons in the fall and spring, George could usually be found practising his naval skills with the YP squadron or running the cross-country course on Hospital Point. With a cheerful word, he could always be counted on to liven up any conversation or to insure a good time on liberty. The destroyer Navy is George ' s chosen field and with his ability and enthusiasm, he should be a welcome addition to any ship in the fleet. ROBERT LEE BECK New York, New York Bob came from Brooklyn Prep in New York City with a firstie brother, a girl friend, and a swimming suit. At the end of plebe summer, he lost his girl; at the end of plebe year, he lost his brother; all he had left was his swimming suit. During the next three years. Bob spent his " spare " time working out in the pool, on the blue trampoline, or around Church Circle. When Bob made a friend or a decision, he spared n one of his resources to promote his friendship or accomplish his goal. Although generally an easygoing guy. Bob waxed mad when his marks declined, restriction came his way, or his Paper Mate wouldn ' t write. His preferences regarding the fairer sex began with slender blonde nurses, but they were known to switch to fit the opportunity at hand. Bob ' s future contains a 190-SL and a pair of wings. PETER G. BULETZA Elizabeth, New Jersey Thin, sandy hair, bronzed skin, and a warm friendly smile, " Buletz " ' reported to the Academy after a year at California State College (in Pennsylvania). As the year progressed, he lost some of the bronze, but not the friend- PETER G. BULETZA ly smile which quickly won him many close friends. Away from the Academy, he spent his time at home with his parents, two younger sisters ( " Anyone want a date this weekend? " ) and two younger brothers, or at this grandparent ' s house on the Jersey shore. This was where Buletz renewed his bronze and looked over the feminine beachcombers. At the Academy, in addition to his intramural sports, he maintained an active interest in his favorite sport, tennis. As coach-manager of his company ' s second-class Turkey Bowl team, he enjoyed a 1-0-0 season and promptly opened himself for bids from any college that needed a winning coach. A Physics major, with good grades, he is looking for- ward to a possible nuclear power future, and considering his short height he should fit well in a submarine.

New Jersey Paul graduated from Palmyra High School in New Jersey and came to Annapolis after spending a year at N.A.P.S. While at N.A.P.S., Paul sharpened his pencils while sharpening his athletic abilities on the football and track squads. Once on the banks of the Severn, Paul became known as one of the " Walking Ghosts " of thf 150 lb. football team and will always be remembered for his bouts with the scales. During the spring, he could br- found on Hospital Point adding his batting punch to his company ' s outstanding Softball teams. While academics were not a breeze for Paul, he was always one step ahead of the Academic Departments. During the weekends Paul was successful in se|iarating himself from the regi- mented routine of Academy life and was an ardent member of the " Drag House " ' set. Friendliness, depend- ability, and motivation form a sound cornerstone for Paul s certain success in whatever phase of the service he may choose to follow. JOHi OLIVER CREIGHTON Seattle. WashiniHon John spent most of his boyhood days in Seattle. W;ish- ington, where he was graduated an honor student from Ballard High School. Highly motivated towards a career in Naval Aviation, he entered the Academy after a year of vigorous training in NROTC at the University of Washington. Combining an excellent technical background with extraordinary ability, John validated numerous courses, thus enabling -him to complete a. dual major in aeronautical engineering and military management. In spite of the burden of heavy academic load, John refused to become dismayed or distraught by the tensions of everyday life. Never in an unpleasant mood, he wa popular with and highly-respected by all who knew h ' m. John treated his female acquaintances with casual indif- ference, yet he received more than his share of long letters. His presence was always felt on the company soccer and lightweight football fields where he was a stalwart on many successful teams. T his competitive drive should undoubtedly provide John with a rewarding career in aviation. DELANY FAWKES. Arlington.

With a minimum of effort Dee has achieved stars and capably handled a Weapons major. Infamous for his ability to consistently come up with the " easiest " distance between two points. Dee could generally be found with a ukelele in one hand, a deck of cards in the other, and his head in the spocts section. He prided himself most on his phenomenal sports knowledge and his record col- lection. An integral part of the company volleyball, bas- ketball, and Softball teams. Dee excelled on the athletic field during his four years here at Navy. Because of poor vision. Dee plans to enter Supply Corps School upon graduation ... if he can find it. ANDREW ROBERT FINLAYSON Mercliantville. Neiv Jersey Andy starred in both basketball and baseball in high school at Merchantville. New Jersey. While at the Acad- emy, he pursued both of these sports on the Plebe and Varsity levels. During Second Class summer, Andy gave up his leave to earn his Airborne Wings at Fort Renning. Georgia. Although not always on outstanding terms with the skinny and steam departments, his achievements in the Bull department were not duplicated by many. The condsination of an avid interest in the world situation and a keeit understanding of military history will do much to make Andy an outstanding military leader. Upon gradu- ation Andy hopes to rejoin the elite group of which he was formerlv a mendser — the U.S. Marine Corps.

His biggest interests were fencing and the D " B. He was a stalwart member of the lower echelon of the former. Those who have formed in the seventh and eighth wing areas may recognize him as a part of the rear terrace Drum Detail which served to accent their march into the Mess Hall. Dick always had a cheerful " Hi " and some humor when you most needed it. He was liked by all for. his good nature and easy-going ways. Since his father is a Naval Aviator, it is not surprising that his career inclination is toward those Navy " Wings of Gold. " After Dick ' s graduation, Navy Air will have a fine officer. DOUGLAS EDWARD LAW Saint Petersburg. Florida ith his father in the Navy and a brother out of the Class of 1960, it was natural for Doug to want to con- tinue in the Navy family tradition. After traveling the path through New Mexico Military Institute and NAPS, this professional " prepster " found his goal attained after a seventh test and final victory over the College Boards. From St. Petersburg, the Naval Academy gained one of its greatest and staunchest sports lovers. Doug was always first and foremost in all sports, gaining his greatest fame through basketball and lacrosse. On weekends many comely lasses came to the Naval Academy and all were fair to behold, but Doug was nowhere to be seen. Doug was to distinguish himself in all departments; the executive department often took note of his many activities, adding much to his character development. As a bachelor, Doug looks forward to many happy years in the Navy. DOUGLAS EDWARD LAW FRANCIS LANE MALONEY New York City, Neiv York Leaving Xavier High School and the background of New York City, Lane found his goal realized in entering USNA. Not one to " waste " his- summers, Lane believed in availing himself of the great opportunities offered by the Navy, attending Scuba School one summer and Air- borne Jump School the next. Although the Academic departments were not his strong points Lane applied him- self with perseverance and diligence. He proved to be one of USNA ' s fiercest competitors when it came to company football and battalion boxing. His funloving nature and spirit found expression in the Brigade radio station and in the many football posters he organized. Lane has much to offer the Navy and, as he looks forward to a long career, he hopes he can give the Navy manv useful ears. 451 FIFTH BATTALION TWENTY- FIFTH COMPANY FRANCIS LANE MALONEY CHARLES PERRY MASON STEPHEN ALLEN MILLER CHARLES PERRY MASON III Pensacola, Florida Charlie came to the Naval Academy from the Navy Air atmosphere of Pensacola, Florida, and a year at Georgia Tech as a Pi Kappa Phi. He brought with him an easy going southern personality that was to last through the rigors of plebe year and the everpresent threat of the executive department. Never one to let academics interfere with his favorite pastime of " pad time " , he always managed, nevertheless, to maintain a high average while participating extensively in the alter- nate and elective programs. Afternoons would find him participating in company sports, including soccer, cross country, volleyball, and heavyweight football. The ham radio shack was one of his favorite haiuits and during second class year his room became known throughout the company as the " sixth wing electronics lab " Charlie managed to blend his southern culture with his Navy Junior background and could always be counted on for help in academics or any other problems that would come up. Hoping to follow a career in Naval Aviation, Charlie will be a definite asset to Navv Air and the Naval Ser- STEPHEN ALLEN MILLER Cleveland, Ohio Steve came to the Academy from the mid-western town of Hubbard, Ohio and though he isn ' t exactly an Army brat his family tendencies lie in that direction. Since he has been here he has tried to overcome these drawbacks and has succeeded exceptionally well. While at the Academy he participated in plebe basketball and golf as well as a year on the J.V. basketball team. During his last two years he did a highly commendable job on the company basketball and softball teams. Though no genius, he did manage to stay ahead of the academic departments and on occasion he made it to bed early to dream of his O.A.O. He was a member of several organizations, in- cluding the Italian Club and Christmas Card Committee. Steve did have trouble with one part of a Mid ' s life; he was by no means naturally buoyant. TIMOTHY ALOYSIUS MURPHY Erie, Pennsylvania Murph, the amiable redhead, came to the Naval Acad- emy after spending two years at Gannon College in his hometown of Erie. Pennsylvania. It wasn ' t long before he had proven his natural academic ability by maintaining " Supt ' s List " grades, a feat he duplicated again and again during his stay here. However, Murph didn ' t hoard his intellectual acumen, he was always ready to aid a less erudite classmate. His lucid opinions and keen interest in all sports endeared him to all his classmates and made him a requisite for any " ' Bull " session held within the twenty-filth company. Murph concentrated his efforts in the English, History, and Government Department: how- ever, he proved himself a well rounded scholar by taking overloads in other departments as well. The Navy will be 452 TIMOTHY ALOYSIUS MURPHY JIMMY B. PERSELS JAMES J. RYAN gaining an outstanding officer when Murph joins the Fleet. JIMMY B. PERSELS Florissant, Missouri Jim, an avid Cardinal fan, came to the Academy from St. Louis. Fortunately, he left none of his enthusiasm and skill on the athletic field at home. Many times Jim, alone, carried the Company soccer and football teams to victories with his hustle and desire. Jim ' s battles, how- ever, were not always restricted to the athletic field, for he was often convinced the math department was out to get him. When evening meal was over you could count on seeing Jim heading toward the phones to line up a little diversion for the coming weekend. Jim was a natural leader and one of the most popular and friendly members of the class. He soon hopes to wear the Navy wings of gold. JAMES J. RYAN Hauppauge, Long Island, New York Jim, better known as " JJ, " graduated from Xavier High School in New York and came to Annapolis after a year at NMML Though large in stature, he was one of the most mild mannered midshipmen at USNA. Though on the Varsity track squad during the winter and spring months, Jim ' s main interest was Navy football, and he proved himself to be one of its outstanding members during his stay here at the Aca3emy. Although he wasn ' t famous for " burning the midnight oil " , and much of his ' free time was spent in slumber, Jim found academics to be no real stumbling block and usually managed to slip in an extra elective course during the year. Jim is destined to be a great Naval officer for he has the quali- ties and motivation to be a leader no matter what career he may choose to follow. SCOTT LOWRIE SEARS Houston, Texas J be Though Scott, as a Marine Corps Junior, traveled all over the country, he claimed Houston. Texas, to be his home. Graduating from the Kinkaid School as an honor SCOTT LOWRIE SEARS student, Scott continued to excel as a midshipman. Yet at the same time, he devoted a majority of his time to activities, athletics, and completely wasting study hour. Always ready to help his classmates with their conflicts with the Academic Departments, Scott was respected for his easy-going personality, and his sense of humor. On the athletic field, he proved to be a fierce competitor, especially in intramural soccer, yet there never was any love lost between him and the Physical Education De- partment. His weekends were usually spent dragging a variety of pretty girls, as long as his money held out, while his Sunday School classes ranked among his favor- ite pastimes. Scott plans to become an officer in the U. S. Marine Corps, and he is sure to be a valuable addition and credit to his unit.

ROBERT DOUGLAS VANCE PHILLIP GORDON SVALYA Southjield, Michic,an Phil came to USNA from Southfiekl. Michigan, by way of NAPS, but his prowess in academics proved he needed no preparation for his journey through the Academy. Standing in the upper ten per cent of his class, Phil proved that grades and fun need not be strangers by dragging uncountable members of the fair sex in a never- ending search for his " perfect girl. " His ability to play the guitar and serenade these beauties made a weekend with him a rare treat for any girl. Phil also found time for many different sports, but his favorite was pitching on the Company softball team. Phil ' s personality, plus his ability to understand people, will give him the oppor- tunity to use his many talents so that when he joins the fleet there is no doubt that our Navy will gain a leader and man she can be proud of. PERRY WHEELER USTICK, JR. McLean, Virginia Perry, a typical Navy junior, called the world his home, though he originally hailed from California. Through the rigorous pressures of plebe year he always managed to hold on to his light hearted outlook on life. Perry, an active participator in sports, earned a name as a go-getter in Battalion lacrosse, light-weight football, and especially in soccer, where amnesia may take him to places afar. In academics, he spent many hours keeping up with the Weapons Department, though he always seemed to find time to get more than enough sleep. Perry ' s responsible attitude, joyous humor, and com- petent leadership will enable him to pursue a long and successful career as a Naval Aviator. ROBERT DOUGLAS VANCE Arlington, Virginia Bob came to the Academy from Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia, after a well traveled life as a service junior. He quickly made his presence known on the Varsity soccer field; his career encompassed three victories over Army and a national championship his last year. His athletic ability was also valued by the Company football and softball teams. Bob never allowed studies to take too much of his time; he could be found occasion- ally strumming a guitar or lying on his " pad. " Weekends usually found him away from the books at some mysteri- ous party. With his amiable way. Bob will have much success wherever his Marine Corps career may take him. RICHARD PAUL VIDOSIC Atlanta, Georgia Dick was an honor student in all fields at Marist Col- lege before entering the Naval Academy. Coming from Atlanta, Georgia, he brought with him all of . the hos- ])itality and warmth for which the South is famous. He left his mark of success at the Naval Academy in all fields— not only in academics, but also in aptitude, con- duct and sports. His weekends were usually spent drag- ging some beautiful lass or playing squash or simply 454 RICHARD PAUL VIDOSIC MARK WAYNE WHEELER STEPHEN G. WIECZOREK hiilail sleeping. His drive and fortitude displayed itself not only on the athletic fields in company soccer, but also on the pistol range as a member of the Navy Pistol Team. His intense competitiveness, sincerity and aptitude will be a certain asset to the ranks of the Silent Service. MARK WAYNE WHEELER Rupert, Idaho Mark came to the Academy from Rupert, Idaho, after completing a year at Brigham Young University. Known to many of his classmates as the " spud, " Mark could always be seen on the company sports field. He was a member of the company soccer team, cross country team, basketball team, heavyweight football team, and softball team. When not participating in sports, he was hard at work in his academic endeavors, or supporting the theory that " rest is best " . Mark was always happy to provide a helping hand to anyone who needed it; he could always be relied on to brighten the day with a comical remark. He displays a determination and drive which has gained the respect of many. Though aspiring to become a Naval Aviation Observer, Mark also finds the Silent Service intriguing. Whichever path he takes, his determination guarantees an enjoyable and fruitful Navy career. STEPHEN G. WIECZOREK Chicago, Illinois Steve, a native of Chicago, joined the ranks of the midshipmen after spending four years as an enlisted electronics technician. Those four years are responsible for Steve being a confirmed submariner. Academically, Steve was near the top with Superintendent ' s List ' s grades. He was well liked and respected by his classmates for his maturity and determination both on the field of athletics, where he was a mainstay of the Battalion crew and water- polo teams, and off the field. Never one to stay away from an argument, Steve always had something of his own to add whether it was in the field of politics, love, or life at the Academy. After graduation. Steve expects to rejoin some of his old comrades in the submarine ser- vice where he will no doubt be a very capable officer. KENNETH CECIL WOOD, JR. KENNETH CECIL WOOD. JR. Houston, Texas Ken came to the Naval Academy from Houston, Texas, where he was an outstanding high school student. After watching the likes of the Cowboys, the Oilers, and the Longhorns, " Woody " was able to put some of his football knowledge into practice at USNA with the 150 lb. football team. One of the few men on the team who didn ' t have to worry about making weight. Ken could tip the scales within the allotted margin without removing his football pads. He mastered with ease all of the challenges pre- sented by life at the Academy. His unbeatable combina- tion of a good sense of humor, a thorough knowledge of sports, and a way with the books made Ken a sought after man among his classmates. Ken ' s determination and personality will make him well received wherever he goes in the future. 455 SECOND CLASSMEN Back Row: R. AA. Keating, R. D. Lichlermann, II, W. M. Hill, Jr., W. A.

In his first two years at the Academy he became avidly interested in gymnastics, but his interest waned and he later entered the intramural sports program in handball and squash.

CaUfornia " Hoss " as George was commonly called by his class- mates, came to USNA from the Golden Beaches of Cali- fornia, leaving behind him an outstanding record in ath- letics at Piedmont High School. George brought to Navy his always pleasant personality and remarkable strength. After two years of football for the Big Blue, George de- cided to concentrate on track to become the track team ' s leading weight man and sole member of the " 1000 club " . His intelligence, though certainly not demonstrated by a mere arithmetical interpretation of his grades, was indi- cated by his high quality of taste in literature, music and women. Combined with his ever pleasant attitude and deep devotion to duty assure George of success in any field he chooses. MICHAEL JOHN DONLEY Village of Mundy ' s Corner, Pennsylvania Pick and shovel in hand, the coal miner from Penn- sylvania descended on the Naval Academy. One year at BuUis School prepared Mike for the career he was about to enter. Academics did not come easily, but determination and desire to succeed were to make the difference. Endowed with fine leadership qualities he was always ready to lend a helping hand to any classmate. Just as he won the admiration of all who knew him at the Naval Academy, he is sure to do so throughout his professional career. JOHN PRYOR EMMETT JR. Birmingham, Michigan John, like so many others, came to the Academy di- rectly from high school. Inexperienced as he was, he soon adjusted to the military way and the rigors of plebe year. John soon found his first love at Navy to be sailing. The experience he gained plebe year enabled him to qualify for his yawl command later on. Obtaining this command pre- sented him the excellent opportunity to learn, and exer- cise the leadership qualities so necessary for an officer. John ' s reasoning ability and intelligence made the aca- demic problem a minor one: he was consistently on the Superintendent ' s List. Regardless of his future role in service life, John ' s warm personality will make him a success wherever he goes. ATOMIC ENERGY COMMISSION FELLOW PAUL GUTHORNE FRIEDMAN Johnstonn, Pennsylvania Any advance information on Paul would have to in- clude the warning that underneath those bushy eyebrows and rugged forehead dwells a right friendly soul. Two years passed between high school and Navy before Pee- Gee dived characteristically head first into the task of balancing a Weapons System major and an interest in varsity sailing. As a proponent of the Pennsylvania mountains, Paul was a knowledgeable marksman, a qual- ity which belied the fact that most pooches and all little children thought he was great. In or out of a military situation, Paul ' s views were respected on subjects from finance to flow diagrams. He will bring to his commission the same dedication, maturity, and understanding that have made him a fine friend.

The plebe year math course proved to be a for- midable obstacle in his path to becoming a Naval officer, but in the end he won out and looked forward to better things as an upperclassman. In the sports world, Mike devoted his athletic talents to the varsity track and soccer teams where he showed himself to be a fierce competitor. However, his favorite sport was weekend dragging with afternoon meditation in the horizontal position running a close second. Mike ' s congenial personality and ag- gressive drive have won him many friends at the Academy and will be valuable assets in his future career as a De- stroyer Officer.

Hillsdale, New Jersey Hailing from Hillsdale, New Jersey, Bill came to the Academy bringing with him an outstanding record of athletics and school leadership from Bergen Catholic High School. A member of an athletic family, he spent his fall days at guard and end behind the green fence, while boxing and track took up the rest of the year. Never starring academically. Bill nevertheless persistently and conscientiously pursued his battles with the academic department as attested by his nightly trips to the library. A naturally outgoing and fun-loving mid, " Higs " didn ' t let the studies get him down, however, and was always ready for a good time and a good drag. His de- termination and hard work coupled with his ability to see the light side of life will make Bill a welcome addi- tion to the Fleet in the future. iHl 6INS HARRY MARSHALL HOWTON ROBERT DOTSON HUIE, JR.

' HARRY MARSHALL HOWTON Birmingham, Alabama Pete was a well traveled salt by the time he arrived at the Academy, having spent four years in military school, and coming from an Air Force family. His zest for con- tact sports found an outlet in plebe and Junior Varsity soccer. Pete never lacked for friends, of either sex, be- cause of his always winning ways. Foresworn the Execu- tive Department would never lick him. Pete set out to keep them on the run and did a good job of it. Not par- ticularly known for academic excellence, he hurdled the academics by dint of a strong willingness to work. This quality, coupled with his unique personality, spell nothing but success for Pete in Navy Line. ROBERT DOTSON HI IE. JR. The red-headed wonder came to the " ensign factory " after spending time at two colleges in his home state, Arkansas. With his strong sentiment toward the military, " Tiger Bob " embarked on a five year career at the boat school. An avid sportsman, Bob spent many hours on the athletic fields with the Company sports teams in cross- country, lightweight football, volleyball, and knockabout sailing. An easy going fellow, the redhead seldom let academics interfere with his pad time and he was always ready to entertain with stories of his weekend stands with members of the fairer sex. Bobby was very active in the Public Relations Committee and the Portuguese Club. At times, he was even known to lapse completely into Portu- guese at Company parties. Bob will always love a good argument and he should be a welcome and valuable addition to the career of his choice. GRANT KIMBALL After seventeen years as a Navy junior. Canoe U. was somewhat of a busman ' s holiday for Grant. Having lived in Guam, Hawaii, and California, Grant called Norfolk home during most of his tenure at USNA. A sometime visitor on the Superintendent ' s List, he majored in the dynamic effects of the " blue trampoline " while at the " Boat School. " A sterling athlete. Grant could always be found with a tennis racquet under one arm and a squash racquet in his hand, leading the charge for the Batt ten- nis and Batt squash teams. Weekends seemed to always find " Rick " in the saddle of his little red Honda or press- ing the point on a classmate that " Navy line is mighty fine. " Grant ' s quick wit and easy going philosophy ac- centuated his ability to get along with classmates. Coupled with his love of travel, these attributes define a gentle- man well suited to a naval career. 463 FIFTH BATTALION TWENTY- S I XTH COMPANY DONALD FRANK LATHEN THOMAS MERTINS LETTER DONALD FRANK LATHEN Arlington, Virginia Don began his naval career when he was scarcely dry behind the ears from a stringent academic course at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia. Don was the epitomy of the well-rounded midshipman, showing interest in everything from the Washington Redskins and the company lightweight football team to just plain knowledge, for knowledge ' s sake. His easy going manner was well suited to his usual study hour practice of hold- ing extra instruction for many of his classmates. The fantastic number of overloads and electives which dotted the " Kid ' s " daily schedule never seemed to hamper his weekend activities with an OAO. Don ' s interest in tech- nical fields guides him toward a career in the silent service or in an aviation-related field. Whatever his choosing, he has the potential and drive to make it an unqualified success. THOMAS MERTINS LETTER Omaha, Nebraska Tom is a product of the wide open spaces, namely Omaha, Nebraska, where he attended Creighton Prep School. 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. His determination and superior athletic ability made Tom a welcomed ad- dition to any team. Always understanding and helpful to his classmates, he proved to be the master of almost any situation. His warm smile and laugh will be remem- bered by all who meet Tom during his career. 464 THOMAS FLETCHER MARFIAK iKret in teck- in ik iile»l lukeitaii ;eizlilon Piei KENNETH WAYNE MOORE THOMAS FLETCHER MARFIAK Torringlon, Connecticut A firm believer in salt air as the best life sustainer, Tom charged into Navy ' s waiting arms and the ensuing tussle proved to be quite a spectacle. Although he en- joyed the mile run as much as the next man, Tom ' s prin- cipal activities were majors in French and English liter- ature, the LUCKY BAG, and the guitar; let us not fail to mention, too. that letters, both read and written, claimed an important place. When not pounding cobblestones, he enjoyed a quiet pipe or a stretch on Freedom, riding that proud ship to Bermuda ... as a cook for sixteen? His fhght plan includes a double commissioning in June and a start on a career that should provide a welcome challenge to this incurable optimist. KENNETH WAYNE MOORE Lmvrenceburg, Tennessee After a year of fun and frolic at Middle Tennessee State, Kenny left the rolling hills of Tennessee to join the Brigade. His ready smile and easy going manner won many lasting friendships and helped Plebe year to pass quickly, although his southern accent and slow, easy manner were known to crowd the ears and bells of Mother Bancroft. As a natural athlete, his first love was sports, where he was a valuable asset to Brigade Cham- pion Handball, company lightweight football, cross coun- try, and Softball teams. These activities were followed by " the blue trampoline " , girls. Brigade Honor Commit- tee, Plebe Detail, academics and dago in that order. Kenny ' s determined attitude is sure to help him toward a distinguished career. 465 WARREN ROCKET McPHERSON HENRY RICHARD NOTHHAFT " Look, Ma, no hands! ' WARREN ROCKET McPHERSON Tusiin, California Rocky called Southern California home but, as a Marine junior, had lived throughout the United States. After seeing the Academy at the age of fourteen and setting it as a goal, he entered by way of Tustin Union High School. While at Navy he divided his time, though not always equally, among Brigade Champion Handball, Company sports, sleep, and the Academic Departments. Constant bouts with the science professors kept him working but the desire and determination that carried him through will enable him to carry on in his father ' s footsteps as a proud member of the Marine Corps. HENRY RICHARD NOTHHAFT Sharon, Pennsylvania Hank came to the Academy from Sharon, Pennsylvania, a small steelmill town. During second class summer while home on leave from the Plebe Detail, his curiosity con- cerning these mills couldn ' t be controlled, so he got a job in one. National Castings hasn ' t been the same since. During his own plebe summer as his weight diminished so did Henry ' s hopes for contending in varsity athletics. He turned instead to overloads in the E.H. G. depart- ment and sportswriting for " The Splinter " to dissipate his energy. Intramural lightweight football and cross country coupled with diversionary reading occupied most of his time. Hank also look advantage of the German Club to acquaint himself with his highly prized native culture. Always one to keep up with the times, on summer days Hank could be seen buzzing the Washington-Balti- more area on his white Honda. LEONARD ALDEN PARKER HUGH ARTHUR RONALDS RAYMOND HENRY SCHEERER LEONARD ALDEN PARKER Norfolk, Virginia Upon the commencement of academic year ' 62- ' 63, " Al " accrued the nickname of " Sweat " . Not one to be outdone, he avoided plebe year mostly through sports and concentrated on academics. This paid off handsomely, placing him in the top 3% of the class. A hard worker, he has continually maintained this level though he has, figuratively speaking, created a multitude of ulcers — both in himself and his roommates. Sweat is the son of a Navy family and has long looked toward a career in the hallowed service, though his ideal exists in movement under the sea. His motivation will be enough to see him through a career in the water based cigars. RAYMOND HENRY SCHEERER Spartanburg, South Carolina Rusty, a never say die Confederate, is still fighting the Civil War. Navy dealt him a few initial blows, but he has since retaliated and is gaining more ground every day. After the rigors of plebe year, Rusty ' s ability as a brilliant organizer and a willing and determined worker became more prevalent. But his greatest asset is his warm and pleasing personality. He is fun to be with and is always willing to help someone else, even when it requires a great personal sacrifice. HUGH ARTHUR RONALDS Wind Gap, Pennsylvania Coming to the Academy from Lafayette College, Hugh quickly adjusted to the life he long desired. His athletic ability made him a key man in Company sports, and he also represented the Public Relations Committee and the Trident Society. His mature and sincere manner distin- guished him as the man to turn to for advice and lasting friendship. His first impression is his smile, but his ability and determination carry on from there.

Never has an earthling so longed to leave his terra firma for the houndless tracts of the sky as this lanky classmate. A wizard in academics, with stars . . . even, Paul often spent much time explaining the vagaries of science to his struggling roommates while he fended off the chill air cff a Norther. Although he began pulling an oar for Navy, the slide rule wielder from sunny California came to carry foils for the fencers. In all he undertook, in the Hall or on a weekend, Paul got under- way with a tremendous wealth of warmth and sincerity at his disposal. As he joins the ranks of a fine tradition, we dip our wings in proud salute with these parting words . . . " Go get ' em, P.B. " NOAH PRESTON SEXTON, II Shawsvilk, Virginia Noah came to USNA from Shawsville , Virginia, after a year at Virginia Polytechnic Institute. Rowing crew in his plebe year, Noah concentrated on sailing and intra- mural sports during his remaining three years. Aca- demically, Noah always seemed to do as well as most without too much time spent studying. In fact, the pad, an abundance of novels, and letter writing to his true love, seemed to fill most of his spare time. Everything Noah •did, he did with a zest which he rapidly transmitted to those around him. He almost never let a problem get him down, and usually found the solution, long after others had given it up for lost. Naval Aviation and a quiet home life, with a wife and plenty of children are Noah ' s plans for the future. With his quick and ready wit and his readiness to work, Noah will be an asset to the Navy and a success in all he tries. 468 PATRICK JAMES SHEEDY. JR. Charleston, South Carolina Coming directly from high school. Pat arrived at the Academy unsuspecting of what was to come, but with a great desire to become a Naval Officer. Navy blue was nothing new to Pat since he hailed from Charleston. South Carolina. With a good academic background he found few problems with the academics at Navy. Though his interests were varied among Company sports and the Y. P. Squadron, he always found time for " resting his eyes. " In planning his future Naval career as a line officer, Pat will join the ranks in the Destroyer Fleet upon graduation. ROBERT ELDON WHITLOCK Cucamonga, California Cucamonga. California, is the largest city in the United States, at least to " handsome " Bob who swore there was no other place like it on earth. As a German major.

Silver Spring, Maryland Carl turned down a scholarship at Cornell to come to the Naval Academy. After a good plebe year and the anguished cry of " BARNHART! " still ringing in his ears, it was evident that Carl, as an upperclassman, would have no trouble in academics. It seemed as though studies came naturally to him. Youngster year found him busily working on a Weapons project. By second class year he had a high academic average and was proudly wearing stars. No matter what the time of day, Carl would always lend a helping hand or give academic assistance. When- ever a big weekend came around, he could be seen with a feminine companion. A likable guy who never threw his weight around, Carl was fond of travelling. With Carl ' s intelligence and drive he will surely excel in any field he enters as a Naval Officer. JAMES BRUCE BEESLEY Atherton, California " Bees " came to the Academy from Atherton. Califor- nia, and soon adjusted to life at USNA with an attitude most of us could envy. Not finding academics too friend- ly, Jim made up for it on the athletic field. Plebe year he earned his numerals in swimming and competed in triathalon. Youngster year he combined a championship handball team with varsity pistol and Company squash. Second class summer Jim enjoyed Pensacola and " Jax " for other than basic flight training, proving himself more than willing to entertain the local lovelies. When he joins the fleet, Jim ' s maturity and willingness to work will make him welcome wherever he goes; our Navy will gain a dedicated officer. FRANK MEDFORD BLANCHARD JR. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania A graduate of Virginia Beach High School (which was quite naturally in Virginia Beach). Skip joined the Navy Reserves and went to BuUis Prep before coming to roost at good ole Canoe U. Being a native Southerner, he was inclined to take it easy and seldom exerted more effort than necessary. One exception, however, was Company heavyweight football, where he put out maximum effort at the guard slot. Some of his other interests included intra- mural squash and the Ocean Sailing Squadron. Usually a quiet person, his real personality shone through at a party: there was never a dull moment with him as the life of the party. Always a friendly guy and ready to lend a helping hand, he was well liked by everyone. In keeping with family precedence as a Navy Junior, Skip intends to follow in his father ' s footsteps by entering Naval Aviation. FIFTH BATTALION TWENTY- SEVENTH COMPANY k 473 . JAMES S. COLEMAN HOWARD LEON CRISP VICTOR ANTHONY DeSANTIS JAMES S. COLEMAN Eutaw, Alabama A true southern gentleman, Jim came to Annapolis from Eutaw, Alabama. He had a natural tendency toward the Navy with his father and grandfather having both graduated from the Academy. Just about everything came easily for him, from academics to athletics, and when he was not playing varsity tennis, he was singing love songs to the opposite sex. He has a keen eye for women and spent much of his time writing to countless young love- lies. He tried to date them all, at one time or another. His own personal abilities and winning ways will make him a welcome addition to our Navy ; and wherever he goes, success is sure to follow. HOWARD LEON CRISP Corpus Chrisii, Texas Howie, as he is called by most of his classmates, became a midshipman right after his graduation from W. B. Ray High School in Corpus Christi, Texas. From the very start his southern friendliness and easy going manner made him well liked by all who met him. Being a well rounded athlete he played football and lacrosse and won his N with star playing midfield on the National Champion lacrosse team. Concentrating most of his study time to math, Howard hurtled the academic barrier with no real problem, and his cheerfulness often brightened up an otherwise dull evening of studies. Even though he never had trouble finding dates Howie didn ' t spend too many of his weekends in the company of the fairer sex. He chose to spend them writing letters, relaxing, or sleep- ing; because, as he put it, " a guy has to have his rest. ' Despite the busy schedule he still found time to partici- pate in many extracurricular activities, especially in his church. Howard is a sincere and dedicated person and upon his graduation the Service will gain one of the Naval Academy ' s finest products. VICTOR ANTHONY DeSANTIS Worcester, Massachusetts Vic, better known as the Wop, from Worcester, Massa- chusetts, entered the Academy straight from St. John ' s H.S. in Shrewsbury. His outstanding display of leader- ship coupled with four years of some kool rhythm has won Vic some stripes with the Hellcats. Other fields of interest have led to participation in intramural softball, the Italian Club, and as president of the varsity sub squad. With less worry over his somewhat receding hair line there is no doubt that Vic will go on to ser ' e Navy line in the same mighty fine way as displayed at USNA. DONALD GLENN DROZ Rich Hill, Missouri Don. who calls Rich Hill, Missouri, his home, came to Annapolis after spending a year at the LIniversity of Missouri. A member of Beta Theta Pi fraternity and a pre-med major at " Mizzou, " he found little trouble with academics during his stay on the banks of the Severn. A humanities overloader, and a regular on the Super- intendent ' s List. Don could often be found " burning the midnight oil. " His sense of humor and his ability to laugh at anything both proved valuable assets and made plebe year easier as well as enjoyable. Athletically, he partici- pated in Company soccer, basketball, and softball. He also gave the swimming department a run for their money and they almost won. A keen interest in history and in- ternational relations as well as a high competitive spirit 474 FIFTH BATTALION TWENTY- SEVENTH COMPANY DONALD GLENN DROZ STEVEN WILLIAM EPSTEIN led Don to an active role in both the Foreign Relations Club and the Brigade Activities Committee. He was our organizer and whether it was Company decorations, a pep rally, or a party, he always did it up big. Don ' s desire to do the best that he can promises a very bright career in the service of his choice. STEVEN WILLIAM EPSTEIN Danbury, Connecticut Danbury. Connecticut, lost one of its outstanding resi- dents when Steve made the trip south to Canoe U. He prepped for a year at Columbian, where his chief interests were football and D.C. nightlife. Recovering from a knee injury, he was a mainstay in the defensive backfield of the Mighty-Mites, earning his N as a Segundo. Steve set a fashion trend by giving the Brigade its own repre- sentative to the Rolling Stones. The Academic Depart- ments never had much of an influence on Steve, but he always managed to stay on the safe side. The destroyer- men in the Newport to Boston weekend club will welcome a loyal comrade when Steve joins their ranks after grad- uation. PETER MAC HESSER PETER MAC HESSER Benson, Arizona The " Chief " hails from the wooly west of Benson, Arizona. After a year at the University of Arizona he followed his brother ' s footsteps and came to Navy. His mile wide grin and good humor won him many friends. Although taking a bigger interest in books after plebe year, Pete still had his interests in western women and western beer and was always quick to argue the better points of his desert home. Pete excelled in Company soccer and softball and was a Battalion handballer. Pete came to the Naval Academy with his main goal the Marine Corps in which service he will no doubt prove valuable. 475 FIFTH BATTALION TWENTY- SEVENTH COMPANY CHARLES E. JOHNSON MICHAEL THOMAS KORBET RONALD ROY MAGNUSON CHARLES E. JOH.NSON Charleston, South Carolina Charlie comes from Charleston, South Carolina, and entered the Naval Academy after attending Prep School. He is noted for his friendliness and his ability to per- form well in the classroom and in extracurricular activi- ties. Not only has he sailed in the Newport-Bermuda Race, he has conmianded a yawl in the sailing Squadron. He is also a qualified Navy Scuba Diver, an achievement that few men obtain. Charlie is from a Navy family and he is earning his niche in this tradition. He hopes to go into Navy Line upon graduation and in time become an oceanographer. His mature attitude and aggressiveness mark him for an excellent future in Naval Service. MICHAEL THOMAS KORBET Northhoro, Massachusetts Mike, known affectionately as " Orbit " , comes to the Academy from BelJarmine Prep School, San Francisco. Throughout his four years here, Mike has set the finest example for his classmates and those under him. Due to his love for sailing, he has participated in the ocean sailing squadron throughout his Academy year s. In addi- tion, he has been a tremendous asset to various Company intramural sports. Although Orbit is somewhat slow to start in the morning, he possesses a vivacious personality which permeates everyone with whom he comes in con- tact. Mike has proven himself both academically and militarily and is destined to be an outstanding aviator. Mike provides a definite spark to everything to which he applies himself and will certainly be a welcome addition to the Officer Corps of the Naval Service. RONALD ROY MAGNUSON Denver, Colorado Being a Navy junior. Ron found it difficult to give a name for his hometown, but his travels gave him a store of information that proved most useful here at USNA. Ron ' s fantastic reasoning ability with academics allowed him to spend a good per cent of his time in bed; in fact his theory was that sleeping was better than studying since it is far more relaxing. In athletics Ron played a variety of sports from cross country to Battalion tennis; but Company soccer was the sport he found best suited for him. Second only to his academic ability was Ron ' s prowess with the ladies. On a double date he was a sparkling personality; if things got dull, he could always draw some fact from his store of knowledge to amaze the girls. Possibly Ron ' s most useful talent was his ability to analyze any problem and come up with the proper solution. This attribute will certainly be of great use to Ron when he joins the Fleet, and no matter what branch he goes into Ron ' s intelligence and perception will make him a great asset to our Navy and to our country. HAROLD VINCENT MAIXNER JR. Alexandria, irs,inia Harry came to the Academy from Hawaii, but being an " Army Brat, " has also lived in Texas, New York, and Germany. Ever the hard worker, he considered his high marks a personal triumph over the academic de- partments. Harry never liked to throw anything away, 476 ' MAi; IC .j;: HAROLD VINCENT MAIXNER JR. ELBERT SEVIER MALONEY WILLIAM GODFREY McBRIDE, JR. « V« I and by the end of Plebe year was known as the " keeper of the gouge. " If the Library didn ' t have it, Harry did. He participated in intramural sports ranging from cross- country to knockabout sailing, and served on the class honor committee. Harry became the envy of many of us by managing to turn his interest in the German Armed Forces into three separate term papers. The Army in- fluence lost out during the early part of Harry ' s stay at the Academy, and he looks forward to service in the Fleet. Whether he ends up on the surface or beneath, he will certainly be a fine officer and a capable leader. ELBERT SEVIER MALONEY Washington, D.C. Pride and dedication have always been an important part of Barney ' s character, serving him well throughout his four years at the Academy. Academics weren ' t much trouble for Barney except for a slight brush with EH G during plebe year. His fun loving nature and pleasing manner made him a well liked person in the class of ' 66. One could tune in on WRNV and find Barney spinning discs on his own program. Other than WRNV, his in- terests were cars and girls; weekends would always find him in the companionship of pretty examples of the lat- ter. Barney gave his best and it was his outstanding per- sonality that made him a prominent member of the brigade. Most certainly, whatever field of endeavor Bar- ney follows in the future will be crowned with success. WILLIAM GODFREY McBRIDE. JR. Mill Valley, California The Corps. The Corps, The Corps " Mac " came to the Academy after serving more than four years in the Marines, and consequently, the tran- sition to Midshipman, USN, was no problem . . . mili- tarily. The enthusiasm and esprit-de-corps he had brought with him endured throughout his four year assignment on " Temporary Additional Duty " with the Navy, and will no doubt be reinforced when he again wears the Green. Bill ' s summers were spent attending Airborne, Scuba, and Jungle Warfare schools, with a little variety provided by an Eagle Cruise, and service on the Plebe Detail. Liberty hours found Mac pursuing his favorite ARTHUR FRANK MILLARD hobbies of parachuting and ceramics. Navy ' s National Championship Lacrosse team was Bill ' s endeavor in the sports field, where he won his " N-star " tending the goal. The Navy ' s loss will be the Corps ' gain as graduation finds this Marine returning. ARTHUR FRANK MILLARD Wichita, Kansas Art came to USNA after a year at Kansas State Uni- versity. While there, he was a member of Phi Eta Sigma scholastic fraternity, and shot on the varsity rifle team. While at the Academy, he pursued his sport of shooting, and won a spot on the USNA varsity list. While he never wore stars for academic excellence. Art was always eager to delve into his favorite textbook. His interest in his academic subjects was surpassed only by his love for the Academy. Classmates always admired Art ' s cheerful and willing acceptance of the rigors and frustrations of Academy life. His graduation, though a sad farewell to the Academy, will be the beginning of a rewarding career. 477 FIFTH BATTALION TWENTY- SEVENTH COMPANY RICHARD WILLIAM OGDEN MARTIN JOHN QUINN RICHARD WILLIAM OGDEN Severna Park, Maryland With the cosmopolitan background of a Navy junior, Bill came to the Naval Academy from Severn School in Severna Park, Maryland, with excellent academic and athletic preparation. As a math " slash, " Bill ' s name fre- quently appeared on the Superintendent ' s List. His intense desire to excel in athletics has led Bill to a berth on the J.V. Soccer team and to participation in Battalion la- crosse. Also an excellent swimmer. Bill nevertheless found time for the requirements of Mother Bancroft. Recog- nized as a leader among his classmates, Bill siphoned enough time from athletics to participate in the Brigade organization. Realizing that all work and no play makes Bill a dull boy, the " Oggs " could be found in the arms of some young lady or embarking on a fantastic adven- ture almost any weekend. His advice to others was always, " It ' s good for a mid to drag every weekend. " Bill ' s vibrant personality and boundless energy should serve him well and carry him far in the fleet. MARTIN JOHN QUINN Greenwich, Connecticut After leaving Greenwich, Connecticut, Marty soon established himself as a leader in his class and was willing to undertake any task given to him. His atliletic ability was evidenced during his four years on Navy ' s varsity crew. During plebe year he was a member of Navy ' s national championship freshman crew. Not trou- bled with academics, Marty ' s name frequently appeared on the Superintendent ' s list. Marty ' s good sense of humor and sharp wit won him many friends. During his free time he could usually be found in deep slumber on the ' blue trampoline ' . Marty is undecided on his future but is sure to be a success in whatever he does. 478 BILLY EMERSON RUSSELL ii lie BffiJiie no play mate Bii ffl Ike « |j DAVID WILLIAM SCHNIBBE imte ' " ' BILLY EMERSON RUSSELL Covington, Tennessee " Put it this way, " Russ was brought up in Covington, Tennessee, now his native home, in the heart of the flatlands. A solid Southern citizen, Russ attended the University of Tennessee, and did a hitch in the reserves before coming to Navy. Russ took his studies seriously, pursuing a major in the Weapons Dept. A good rugby and football player, Russ has added much to company and Batt teams. Russ ' s friendly personality and many tales of his days in the " flatlands " have gained him many friends and actually made him a legend in his own time at the Academy. Russ is undecided about the future, but whichever field he chooses the Navy will undoubt- edly gain an outstanding officer. DAVID WILLIAM SCHNIBBE Union, Neiv Jersey Dave came to the Naval Academy after spending three years as a " white hat " , including the Naval Academy Prep School at Bainbridge, Maryland. During his four years at the Academy he was an average student aca- demically, but was above average in aptitude and con- duct. His one interest in sports was running. Being on the cross-country, indoor track and outdoor track teams, he made running a year round endeavor. Dave was known for being a quiet " old man " . An old man because he will be twenty-five at graduation time, and quiet be- cause he was friendly and sincere in his own quiet way. Dave will be remembered for his athletic ability and an aptitude for the Navy that should make him successful in any chosen Navy field. 479 JON MICHAEL SINISI FRANK M. SWIENTEK Happy is the mid who can browse at will. JON MICHAEL SINISI New Orleans, Louisiana Mike was born and raised in New Orleans before com- ing to the Academy. Plebe year ' s harassments failed to affect Mike ' s easy going manner; his dry Southern humor kept us laughing and helped to brighten some of our darker hours. Never one to let academics get him down, Mike was always able to find time for a good book or a discussion on politics, not to mention his frequent " thought " sessions on the " blue trampoline. " Rugby, amateur radio, and hunting are his major interests. Navy Line has always had a special attraction for Mike, but whether on, under, or over the sea, the coming years of Navy life look promising and rewarding for him. FRANK M. SWIENTEK Buffalo, New York Frank, a native of blustery Buffalo, New York, carried his immunity to New England cold with him south. Con- sequently, he always excelled in winter sports. His sum- mers were actively spent on a voluntary submarine cruise and a hard-earned pair of jump wings. During this high- powered activity, Frank kept a high academic average while assisting some less talented classmates through rough water. Navy Line, Frank ' s first love, will welcome a fine officer upon graduation. (■ ' Sii • ' ! « - :, A g DAVID RAYMOND WALKER MICHAEL ALAN NYE WHIHEMORE PETER WARREN WRIGHT DAVID RAYMOND WALKER Being born in the Naval Academy Hospital it seems only natural that Dave should have attended the Naval Academy. He hopes to keep family tradition by being the second aviator in his family. Dave ' s main accomplishment since he has been at the Academy has been to fall in love three times. His present flame seems to have him tied down for good, though. Three seems to be the magic number for Dave because he has also gone through three sets of room- mates. In addition to being a ladies ' man he has proved his strength by playing varsity golf and intramural basketball, soccer, and heavy-weight football. The experiences he has gained from meeting and overcoming successfully all of the many challenges that confronted him during his tenure at Navy should serve him in good stead as a Naval Officer. He is certain to be a credit to his class and to the Navy. MICHAEL ALAN NYE WHITTEMORE Nashua, l ' ew Hampshire Hailing from the great community of Nashua, New Hampshire, where he graduated from Nashua High, Mike brought with him an indomitable wit. Nothing could crush it; not even his experiences on youngster cruise or at the third wing barber shop (which were hair-raising to say the least!). Some of the many activities Mike engaged in during his four years ' attendance at USNA included Company heavy-weight football, cross country, dinghy sailing, and even a trip to Bermuda as a deep water sailor. Following his New England instinct, Wliit was always the first to find a party and while he was around there was never a dull moment. As the first one in his family to go Navy, Whit plans to start a new line of naval heroes by being the next Navy Air Ace. PETER WARREN WRIGHT Tampa, Florida After a highly successful year at the University of South Florida, Pete chose to leave sunny Florida and attack the rigorous life of USNA. Although a firm be- liever in Southern belles, Pete soon discovered that Northern women weren ' t so bad either. While at the Academy Pete has gained a great deal of respect from his classmates while contributing much to victories in soccer, basketball and football. Although claiming to be no slash at the books, Pete compiled a fine academic record. Pete plans on a future of Naval Aviation, but what- ever he does the Navy will undoubtedly gain an out anding officer. FIFTH BATTALION t TWENTY- SEVENTH COMPANY 481 SECOND CLASSMEN Back Row: A.

He whizzed through plebe year as if it were going out of style and established himself early as an outstanding leader. Frank demonstrated his out- standing athletic ability by playing on several regimental and brigade championship teams and frequently found time to jog around the Academy grounds. He never had any trouble in academics and his facility with languages and liberal arts courses led him to majors in Portuguese and international relations. Among his many extracur- ricular activities were the Brigade Hop Committee, the Second Class Ring Dance Committee. Foreign Relations Club, and Portuguese Club. With his serious dedication to duty and the service, Frank will have a bright future in his chosen military career. JAMES CHARLES ARTHUR Scotia, Neiv York Coming straight from the banks of the Mohawk River in New York, Jim turned down an appointment to the Coast Guard Academy and an NROTC scholarship to Cornell in order to indulge in the campus atmosphere of the Academy. A 1962 graduate of Scotia High School, he lettered in wrestling and baseball, continuing as a member of the varsity wrestling team. Jim is best-known for his spur-of-the-moment skits and imitations, especially his imitation of the Pope at the Notre Dame pep rallies, in which the strains of " Ex Scientia Tridens, Non Sibi Sed Patriae " resulted in pandemonium and uproarious laughter. A Spanish major, he kept all of his grades above sea level, with the exception of a come-from-behind decision over plebe " steam " . Upon graduation, Jim in- tends to go Navy Air, and his keen reflexes, immunity to motion sickness, and sober judgment should give the Navy a top-notch pilot. RODGER BESLEY CARTER Raleigh, North Carolina A native of Raleigh, North Carolina, Rog came to the Academy straight out of high school, but had little trouble adjusting to the " collegiate life. " With a soft spot in his heart for Southern belles and aeronautical engineering Rog excelled in both, while earning a major in the latter. His strong desire to win earned him the top spot in the ' 63 class at " jump school " in Fort Benning, and his fierce sense of competition distinguished him as a " tiger " in Company lightweights and cross country. The " Sena- tor ' s " warm personality and easy manner coupled with these abilities will certainly yield him a successful career in Naval Aviation. FIFTH BATTALION TWENTY- EIGHTH COMPANY 485 . JOSEPH DALLAS CLARKE IV OTIS ROBERT COLE GARY LEE DIMMIG JOSEPH DALLAS CLARKE IV Honolulu, Hawaii Bringing his smile with him from Hawaii, Dallas soon won the title of the Happy Hawaiian. Keeping this attitude was no problem as the Academic Departments presented him with very little difficulty. A standout on the varsity swim team, " Fish " was as much at home in the Nata- torium as he was in the pad. Not being one to limit him- self, he will be remembered not only for his achievements in athletics and academics, but also for his close contact with the Executive Department. Always ready to help anyone out Dal will make a very capable officer. His per- sonality and natural affinity for water will make his future Naval career a success. OTIS ROBERT COLE HI Norfolk, Virginia Coming from a Navy family, Bob is no stranger to the Naval Service. Bob spent five years in Norfolk, Virginia, prior to entering USNA and graduated from Norfolk Academy. Here at Annapolis, Bob deftly fit into all phases of Naval Academy life with remarkable ease. Varsity 150 pound football and varsity wrestling have been Bob ' s specialty in the sports field. Academically, " Ote ' s " name has appeared on the Superintendent ' s List frequently. Most outstanding of all is the long list of friends that Bob has made by his unassuming personality and willingness to help them out whenever he can. This has shown itself in the high positions awarded him in the Brigade striper organization throughout his four years at the Academy. Judging from his excellent performance here at USNA. it is safe to say that Bob will be an asset to whatever field of the Naval profession that he chooses. GARY LEE DIMMIG Quakertown, Pennsylvania After four years of training at Quakertown High, " Dumbo " attended Columbian Prep, for a year of con- centrated study. With a strenuous plebe summer behind him, Gary decided that enough was enough and made a beeline for training tables in September where he man- aged to remain obscure until June week. The food must have agreed with him as he played halfback for the un- defeated plebe football team and captained the freshman thin-clads to perfect indoor and outdoor seasons remain- ing undefeated in his individual events while setting rec- ords in the 600, quarter mile, one mile and two mile relays. Needless to say, " Dimmer " continued his win- ning ways for Navy varsity squads. The athlete, how- ever, was but one side of Gary. He possessed a ready smile and a perennial good word for everyone. A reli- gious person, he was a regular at OCU meetings. Gary is a gentleman officer we are all proud to call a friend. THOMAS VINCENT DOYLE nioomjield. New Jersey Uncertain about his vocation goals while attending Seton Hall University for two years, Tom decided on a drastic change of routine in entering the Naval Academy. Little time had elapsed during plebe summer before Tom seriously wondered just " how drastic " a change an in- dividual could adjust to. Once on an even keel, " Doles " began to develop a keen interest in literature, and the bull department in general. Successfully completing his major in literature, Tom had hopes of some day furthering his education in this field. Along with his proficiency in the literary realm, " T.V. " also maintained a high average in the basic curriculum. To balance out his Shakespeare read- 486 Ep . .

The Company soccer, basketball, and softball teams found him to be a real asset on their winning squads. In all aspects of Academy life, Tom showed a conscientious and highly-principled will to succeed. His classmates real- ized this in voting him Company honor representative all four years. With this desire to excel, and his amiable and sincere personality, Tom will undoubtedly be a competent officer. JOHN DUDLEY EARHART JR. Memphis, Tennessee After graduating from Messick High School, John continued his carefree living at home for a year while attending Memphis State University. He then decided to excel at USNA, with a victory over plebe year aca- demics in sudden death overtime, he has since worked hard in raising his class standing. Known as a fierce competitor, he was a standout on the fieldball, squash and Battalion football teams. He is proud of going un- defeated in squash youngster year, and, though this net- ted him no letter, the Executive Department saw that he received his " N " second class year. Wings of gold are symbols of John ' s immediate postgraduate plans. WILLIAM THOiVIAS GAFFNEY West Keansburg, New Jersey From New Jersey ' s sunny shore hails one of Navy ' s hardest workers. After three years of revelry and casual living Bill decided to settle down and prepare for a more stable future. Adapting readily to the new way of life Bill was quick to arouse the humor of his classmates with his witty cynicisms. Always an avid student, he spent many a late hour in his dimly lit room, never WILLIAM THOMAS GAFFNEY without an ear open for the Officer of the Watch tip- toeing along on the late lights prowl. The result of his labor is an excellent record of academic achievement with a major in Political Science. Never yielding to the pres- sures of the system Bill was also active on the plebe rifle team and in the Academy ' s intramural program. Without letting his attachment to the natatorium stand in his way, Bill stroked his way to numerous victories in Batt crew. Wherever the future finds Bill and the Navy, it will be mutually rewarding for both of them. 487 A ROBERT THOMAS GOLDEN JEROME BROWNLEE HODGE BENJAMIN RIPPE JACOBI ROBERT THOMAS GOLDEN Utile Rock, Arkansas Traveling from down south, Little Rock, to be exact, Bob got off to a fine start at the Academy by excelling in sports, making both the plebe soccer and rifle teams. An all-around competitor, Bob also contributed greatly to the Company sports program. Academically Bob has never been one to allow something like studies stand in the way of " good sound sleep; " however, in time of need he has never failed to rise to the occasion. In the area of services, however. Bob has given generously of his time to support our class activities by being a member of both the Brigade Hop Committee and the Second Class Ring Dance Committee. Combining a major in Aerody- namics with a deep sense of personal honor and pride in the service. Bob will indeed be a credit not only to the Academy but to the entire Navy. JEROME BROWNLEE HODGE Memphis, Tennessee Straight out of the hills of Tennessee, Jerry found a home at USNA. Academics weren ' t easy for Jerry, but he maintained a respectable average throughout his four years. He finds soccer and football to his liking but his real love is for the " blue tramp. " His quick wit and friendly sarcasm often make him the source of much laughter. His pleasant personality should make Jerry a valuable asset to his chosen field in the Navy upon graduation. BENJAMIN RIPPE JACOBI Miami Beach, Florida Jake came to USNA from the playground of the world, Miami Beach, Florida, after a year at BuUis Prep. Neither Bullis nor plebe year could dull Jake ' s funloving attitude though at times it was a hard fight. His battles after this were waged primarily on the football field and with the Academic Departments, the easier being on the ball field. After being a defensive ace on the plebe team and spending a year on the varsity JV ' s, Jake switched to the ISO ' s and immediately became a mainstay of their offensive unit. For the remainder of the year track, women, and academics provided enough challenges to keep him busy. Off the field, Jake is well known and liked for the casualness with which he treats Academy life. Possessing all of the qualities to be a success, Jake ' s easy going personality will assure him of smooth sailing in whatever service he chooses following graduation. CARL PRESTON McCULLOUGH Barllesville, Oklahoma Carl, born and bred in the heart of the Southwest, came to USNA directly from high school and never let it be forgotten that he was .an Okie. Following the fog of plebe year and the Army game, Carl settled down to the task of developing into a fine student and officer. Never one to let academics, conduct, or other integral factors of the system interrupt his pad time, Carl man- aged to maintain his friendliness and academics with a sufficient amount of sleep. An ardent sports lover, whether it be from the administrative end with his football pools or to active participation in intramural cross-country and football, he always managed to excel. As president of the BAG. Carl ' s imagination and drive often resulted in out- standing achievements in support of Navy ' s athletic teams. Desirous of a career in Naval Aviation following gradua- tion. Carl will bring with him to his duty station the friendliness and leadership qualities of an outstanding of- ficer. 488 FIFTH BATTALION TWENTY- FIG HThH COMPANY CARL PRESTON McCULLOUGH GEORGE ADAM KLEIN GEORGE ADAM KLEIN III Baltimore, Maryland Fresh froiii two semesters social training at the Uni- versity of Maryland and a one year tour on a milk truck, George descended upon the mud-covered banks of the Academy. A native of Baltimore, he was disappointed to learn that he would not be able to commute. Not a scho- lastic wizard. George was constantly in the throes of an academic upheaval. He could usually be found sharpen- ing the cleats on his soccer shoes, composing a good snow line, or lighting his pipe during a long and tedious study hour. A destroyerman in the making, George prac- ticed his forthright leadership as Commander of the J. V. soccer team. A strong promoter of the system. George should find much success in his Naval career. EDWARD EARLE MORGAN Pueblo. Colorado Rather hesitant to leave the West, Ed came to the Acad- emy after a year at Southern Colorado State College. Not one to take academics too seriously, " Morgs " could be found most any night expounding the virtues of his home state, which, by his own admission, has never been quite the same since he left. An avid football fan and fierce competitor, he played Company lightweights and was a mainstay on the soccer and softball teams. On the weekends Morgs could be found relaxing or wildly danc- ing to the music of the Spiffies but always in the com- pany of an attractive young lady. On Sundays he gave up some precious sleep to sing with the Catholic choir. His incessant drive and enthusiasm will ultimately make him a great asset to the Navy. EDWARD EARLE MORGAN 489 FIFTH BATTALION TWENTY- EIGHTH COMPANY RICHARD JOSEPH MULLER DENNIS PATRICK O ' REILLEY RICHARD JOSEPH MULLER Savannah. Georgia Rich came to Yankee land from Savannah. Georgia. A strong desire to stay in top physical condition and a keen competitive spirit made the practice fields of An- napolis the most likely place to find him in the after- noons. His natural athletic ability distinguished him as a glue-fingered end for the company lightweights and ranked him high in his class in P. T.; however, the Aca- demic Departments always presented a greater challenge. Completely at home with a girl on one arm and a bottle of liquid nourishment in the other hand, on weekends he focused his attention on the fairer sex, and many a girl was wooed and won by his innocent drawl and pleasing manner. That same agreeable personality will contribute to his continued success in the future. DENNIS PATRICK O ' REILLEY Wheeling, Illinois A Navy junior who calls Illinois home, Pat came to the Academy after a year at Northwestern Prep School. Not having too much trouble with academics, he majored in International Relations. Pat could be found either in the blue trampoline or shining his stars. Learning his football in Texas, Pat was a mainstay of the Battalion team, and a " big man " on the Company fieldball team where his quick " Irish temper " added interest to any " grovel. " Next to the Navy, green beer and Irish whiskey are the closest things to Pat ' s heart. His strong determina- tion and spirit will make Pat an asset to Naval Aviation if they can squeeze his huge frame into the cockpit. 490 JERALD LESLIE PARSONEAULT JOHN ROGERS ROLAND, JR. JERALD LESLIE PARSONEAULT El Segundo, Calijornia When Jerry came to Annapolis from El Segundo, Cali- fornia, he brought with him an ingenious mind and an exceptional sense of humor never before witnessed by the Brigade. Never lacking in ideas or the energy to fulfill them, his contribution to the Notre Dame pep rallies will not soon be forgotten by the Brigade or the Chaplains. A versatile athlete, Jerry participated exten- sively in all intramural sports. At other times he could be found in either the clutches of the " pad monster " or his one and only. Nault had a working knowledge of any non-academic subject, and his door was always open for a friendly chat or deep discussion. He has been a tre- mendous asset to the Company and is known to his class- mates for his agreeable personality and the determination to get the job done. With his enthusiasm and zest for the finer things of life, Jerry will certainly be a welcome addition to the fleet. JOHN ROGERS ROLAND. JR. Cochran, Georgia John, more affectionately known as Swamps, hails from Cochran, Georgia. Thinking of studying forestry after high school, he entered Middle Georgia Junior College from which he graduated with honors after two years. Finding his true calling to be the Naval service, John came to USNA with the class of 1966. Tlie belles of Georgia ' s loss was Navy ' s gain. His ability to excel stemmed from strict self discipline which made him the envy of many of his classmates. John complemented his academic accomplishments with vigorous participation in Company sports and personal physical fitness programs. Desire and perseverance have spelled success for Swamps in his year as a midshipman. The surface fleet cannot help but benefit from his presence. It is with great admiration that we salute John as he embarks upon his Naval career. 49! GARY EARL SCHMIDT EDWARD ALBERT SMYTH The last mile is seldom a breeze. GARY EARL SCHMIDT Ocononwuoc Wisconsin Gary hails from a town in Wisconsin with tlie nearly unspellable name of Oconomowoc. Keeping " squared away " and as inconspicuous as possible, he sailed through plebe year without difficulty and ended up one of the top men in the class, both in academics and apti- tude. Athletically, he held down the number one spot on the plebe golf team and helped the Company to the Brigade lightweight football championship. A star man scholastically all the way through the Academy, he has willingly helped out others with their academic diffi- culties. Often ribbed about spending all his free time in bed, " Schmittie " can usually be found burning the mid- night oil, sometimes past the witching hour. Gary has been a class striper since plebe year and has demonstrated effective leadership and willingness to stick up for his classmates. An outstanding member of the Class of ' 66, we wish him fair weather and a follow- ing sea in whatever career he chooses. EDWARD ALBERT SMYTH Quincy, Massachusells Ed came to the Naval Academy by way of Holy Cross College and Quincy, Massachusetts; his Harvard accent adds flavor to an already congenial personality. Quick to make friends and provide leadership. Ed sets his eyes on a History major and has not failed to make his mark on the Superintendent ' s List. Although his varsity football aspirations were sidetracked by injuries, Ed remained an ardent sports fan and proved to be a valuable asset in Company competition. A music lover, he liked to spend his spare moments enveloped in the sweet strains emanat- ing from his custom buih stereo. Undecided about his future and torn between a love of the " green machine " and an insatiable yearning for the bridge of a destroyer, his en- thusiasm and zest for the service slrould make him a valuable and successful officer. ' MMIH HOWARD FREDRIC TRODAHL WILLIAM WELLS WEISSNER GARREH ALAN ZOPF HOWARD FREDRIC TRODAHL Green Bay, Wisconsin Howie came to the Naval Academy from high school in Fargo, North Dakota. He moved to Green Bay, Wis- consin, shortly after coming to USNA and became a devoted Packer fan, an avid follower of pro football. Howie put his muscular frame to good use, being an outstanding asset to his Company softball, football, bas- ketball, and volleyball teams during his stay at the Acad- emy. His many friends often jovially called him " Eskimo " because he spent his first twelve years in Alaska because of his father ' s occupation as a minister. Always ready for a good time or a party, he usually showed up with the best looking girl at social affairs, both at USNA and on leave and liberty. A conscientious and competent midshipman, Howie will be a welcome addition to the fleet. WILLIAM WELLS WEISSNER Malverne, Long Island, New York Hailing from Malverne, Long Island, Bill came to the Academy straight from high school. He enjoyed partici- pating in track at Valley Stream North but elected to forego track in favor of studies and the Sailing Squadron at Navy. Never one who found it necessary to study ex- cessively, Bill had little trouble maintaining a " star " average. He amazed many people with his knowledge of ships while displaying an avid interest in the surface fleet. Regardless of the situation. Bill always had a friend- ly smile and warm greeting for everyone. Bill ' s enthusi- asm and will to work will make him a credit to the fleet. GARRETT ALAN ZOPF Bronx, New York Coming straight from Cardinal Hayes High School in the Bronx, New York, Garry followed in the footsteps of his older brother. After the hard courts of the city streets, Garry found the basketball courts of Navy to his liking and became the biggest little man in Company basketball. Though most of his free time was spent with his first love, basketball, he managed to play Battalion football and softball. When not engaged in sports he could be found in bed or clowning around with his classmates. Also a connoisseur of dancing, he spent many of his weekends at the Spiffie hops. Although not known for his academic ability, he had no problem keep- ing his grades above average. His distinctive laugh could pinpoint his position even over the din of the mess hall. Undecided about his future, Naval Aviation or the fleet will certainly benefit from Garry ' s friendliness, sense of humor, and ability to get the job done.

A ' eic Hampshire Rey came to the Academy from Somersworth High School after being a standout in the classroom and on the playing field. After a very successful year in plebe football his was a stormy road in athletics. He never gave in to academic pressure; consequently his room had to be entered quietly for fear of awakening him in his most serious endeavors. His abihty to play bridge was the envy of those who occasionally had to open a book. His companionship was sought continually by his classmates and several young ladies. Rey ' s quick wit and abilitv to make a fast and accurate decision will make him not onlv an agreeable companion but a competent officer. GARY ROBERT BLINN Norfolk, Nebraska " G.R. " came to the Academy directly from high school in Norfolk, Nebraska. Never one to really " sweat the system " , he learned and progressed at his own speed. Plebe year was no unconquerable problem for Gary, though, and he donned his single stripe and surprised the world wuth his quick smile and tremendous sense of hu- mor. Never one to conform for the sake of conforming, Gary became an avid sportsman in such little-known sports as fencing and rugby. Aside from athletics. " G.R. " has a great many other interests among which are politics, painting, and dragging the prettiest girl in the yard. Being the Supt. ' s List student that he is, Gary has his sights set on NFO. GERALD DOUGLAS BUNCH Annandale, Virginia Jer brought his quick wit and energetic personality to the Academy fresh from nearby Annandale High School. Living close to the Academy and having a deep liking for members of the fairer sex, he was rarelv found in the hall on weekends. Since he took life as it came, always picking the best of it, he was seldom without a good word. Likewise he took his studies in stride, and after plebe year, didn ' t let them bother him too much. With a keen desire to excel, he was a terror on any sports field, but most of his talents were given to the rugby and Company football teams. He also gave much of his musical ability to the Academy. He has been a hard working ipember of the Academy Drum and Bugle Corps, Chapel Choir, and Musical Club Show. Jer knows what he wants out of life and with his ease at makii friends, he will be a credit to the men of Naval Aviation. FIFTH BATTALION TWENTY- N I NTH COMPANY 497 JOHN ROBERT CHARLES MARVIN MICHAEL DODGE HARVEY LOGAN ESTY JOHN ROBERT CHARLES Clemson, South Carolina Charlie, pure and full of innocence, graduated from high school and hiked up to USNA from Clemson, South Carolina. He excelled in baseball and 150 pound football plebe year; only a late plebe season knee injury prevented him from attaining Ail-American recognition as an up- perclassman. As a staunch supporter of rock-and-roll, and a smooth ballroom dance, " Bobber " became a member of the Hop Committee, and could be found at many a " Spif- fy " hop burning up the dance floor, or at a formal hop dancing the feet off the hostess. Having a flare for ele- gant women and fast cars, he decided to join the high flying crowd at Pensacola after graduation so that he could indulge in his favorite pastimes of flying and beach bumming. Never one to worry about academics, he could always be found in a crowd either shooting the breeze or playing his guitar and singing folk songs. With his smooth flowing southern drawl and bubbling enthusiasm, Charlie did well at the Academy and will continue to excel at anything he attempts. MARVIN MICHAEL DODGE Mangikio, Guam, Mariana Islands Mike came to the Naval Academy after battling elec- trical engineering for a year in the NROTC program at Marquette University. A second generation Navy man, Mike has a strong affinity towards a career in Navy line. Mike gave up a beachcomber ' s life in the South Seas for the hardy life of a midshipman. An exceptional naval and modern historian, Mike ' s chief extracurricular interest is the Foreign Relations Club. Sportswise, he e njoyed ocean sailing and contributed his share of points to the company cross country and heavyweight football teams. Mike could often be seen rampaging through the halls of Bancroft snapping pictures of hapless classmates with his Polaroid camera. HARVEY LOGAN ESTY Baltimore, Maryland Although originally from Oregon, Skip ' s home is now in nearby Baltimore where he spends as much time as possible. Skip ' s love of sports was clearly evident on the athletic field almost every day. After Plebe Lacrosse, he kept up the sport his sophomore year to lead the Bat- talion team to the Brigade championship. When not on the field he could always be found experimenting with some sort of electrical gear or working at being a handy- man. Skip ' s many talents did not end here, however. Starting his singing debut in the chapel choir, his sing- ing ability soon manifested itself in the Academy ' s rock and roll group, the Spiffys, where his happy voice and dancing feet delighted many a mid and his drag. And few weekends went by without finding him with one of his girls. Never a shirker of danger or new thrills Skip has earned his share of black N ' s.

MICHAEL LEROY HOPE Syracuse, Kansas The Bear came to the Academy from his folks ' fann in Syracuse, Kansas after first spending a year at New Mexico Military Institute. His quick smile and the quiet easy going manner with which he handled everything that came his way, quickly made him one of the most popular men in the company. He never had it easy with the academic department, but he always attacked the situation with the quiet determination he was noted for and managed to get the job done. It was on the athletic field where Mick really excelled. He gave plebe 498 R FIFTH BATTALION TWENTY- N I NTH COMPANY LOGAN KFf MICHAEL LEROY HOFF JOSEPH WILLIAM ROLAND FELTY football a try. but a trick shoulder made him switch to the batt and company level, where he was a standout. Other main interests included impromptu wrestling match- es during study hour or just sitting and talking with fellow mids about anything and everything, especially his days back on the farm. His warm personality and the ease with which he makes friends will make him a verv welcome member of the fleet. JOSEPH WILLIAM ROLAND FELTY Waxahachie, Texas Joe came to Navy from deep in the heart of Texas as the pride of his hometown, Waxahachie. A year at New Mexico Military Institute after high school gradua- tion in 1961 prepared Joe for Academy life. His major interest was football in which he earned his numerals on an undefeated plebe team and the coveted " N " star on the 1963 National Champion 150 lb. team. His strong competitive spirit also made him a valuable asset in company sports. When not on the athletic field, Joe could almost always be found either behind a stack of books or on his way to the company coffee mess. Be- cause of his sly wit and easy going Texas friendliness, Joe became one of the best liked members of the Brigade. Always ready with a joke or a smile during the hardest of times, he did his part to brighten Academy life. Joe ' s hard working character and deep devotion to duty insure him a rewarding career in the Naval Service. SIDNEY JOHNSON KILGORE HI Greenville, South Carolina Sid came to the Naval Academy after a year of prep school at Bainbridge. Although grades did not come easily, he never hesitated to put the books aside long enough for an hour or weekend of fun and frolics with his many friends. The Fox. w ' hose nickname describes SIDNEY JOHNSON KILGORE III him perfectly, has been one of the most talented and yet modest men of the Brigade. His well known ability to duplicate any sound and mimic anything from a Sting Ray to Donald Duck has kept people laughing for hours. Possessing outstanding athletic ability, Fox could be seen playing football, soccer, basketball, or boxing on any given afternoon. In the company he was known as the man who always got the word, knew what to do and when and how to do it well. A man of the utmost depend- ability, none of his many friends ever had to hesitate to ask a favor of him. Upon his graduation, the Nav7 will gain, and many unfortunate people will lose . . . the best friend they ever had. 499 FIFTH BATTALION TNA ENT Y- N I NTH COMPANY DAVID JOSEPH KOKORUDA MANUEL RAYNOR LOPEZ " ' i JAMES ANDREW MANISCALCO DAVID JOSEPH KOKORUDA Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Rumor had it that " Duke " hailed from a corner in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but he was really the son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Kokoruda and an outstanding grad- uate of Shaler High School in the North Hills section of Pittsburgh. " Duke " was known for his spirit and hustle on the athletic field as an active participant in all sports, but his favorite sport was playing the infield for the twenty-ninth company softball team. He was also at home in the academic world as an excellent student and an outstanding public speaker. Dave ' s only real problem seemed to come from placing too much faith in members of the opposite sex, but experience is an excellent teacher. Dave will always be remembered by his classmates for his cheerfulness and his loyal and sincere friendship. MANUEL RAYNOR LOPEZ HyattsviUe, Maryland One of the most traveled members of the Brigade, Manny made good use of his Midshipman ' s leave time, traveling to Canada, Hawaii, Europe and the Philippines. But it was more than just itchy feet which caused this wanderlust, it was all part of Manny ' s desire to get to know people, all kinds of people, and find that worth- while something that is present in everybody. For beneath his calm, friendly exterior, Manny was a deeply sensitive person who was very much concerned with the different qualities and values by which a person ' s contribution to the world is measured. One of the most sincere and conscientious people I know, Manny never let his sense of humor and feeling of consideration for others escape him. As an active par- ticipant in the Drum and Bugle Corps and the Lucky Bag staff in the past, Manny brought to his extracurricular activities the same conscientious, determined effort ex- pended on academics. JAMES ANDREW MANISCALCO Laivrence, Massachusetts Roaring in from Lawrence. Massachusetts with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, Jim came to Navy as perhaps the only midshipman ever to enter these gates without a high school diploma. This proved no obstacle for Jim. standing first in the company in academics, wearing " stars " , and being on the Superintendent ' s List all four years. He also found outlets for his energies on the athletic field, where his natural ability combined with a hustling drive marked him as a fine competitor. Jim ' s ready smile always made him friends wherever he went. In addition, his blond hair proved to be appealing to the opposite sex and many week-ends found him pounding the stony sidewalks of Annapolis enjoying the pleasures of feminine companionship. Jim ' s career plans lean toward nuclear power. Wherever, success will follow him. We are sure the Navy will be happy to see him join the ranks as a gentleman officer.

Hatfield, Pennsylvania A Naval Reser ' e appointment brought Bill to the banks of the Severn after two years as a " Weekend Warrior " and collegiate at West Chester State. Although the aca- demic departments did not always see eye to eye with him, Bill maintained a healthy average and still had time to take part in the Newman Club, Ring and Crest Committee, while acting as Long and Splinter repre- sentative. Being a typical Pennsylvanian, football was his forte. Fall and winter would find him on the intramural grid- irons with a rest in the Spring on the company volleyball team. The return of the Brigade each Fall would present Bill all tan and smiles with a new list of future dates, acquired during his summer cruise and leave as a life- guard in his hometown swimming club. His thoughtful- ness and his ability for thorough analyzation will assure him of a rewarding career. RICHARD DALE McDONALD Virginia Beach, Virginia Once in a great while a fellow comes along who can be termed a true son of the South, " Mac, " a resident of Virignia Beach, is a real example of the best attributes of that legendary Southern gentleman. His quiet, efficient manner is complemented by a certain continental air de- veloped while he was a student in France, At USNA, Mac ' s interests ran to almost all of the various sports while weekends seldom came without an opportunity to see him with a stunning drag. Academics, too, played their share, but in a more subtle way. Few people can be credited with Dick ' s fair manner and personal courage; fewer still will take away from the Academy his sense of duty toward his fellow officers and the naval profession. JOHN DANIEL McGOLDRICK Levittown, Pennsylvania Dan came rambling into the Naval Academy from Pennsylvania with an amazing head of hair. He quickly MICHAEL BRUCE MELONEY adapted to the Navy look and it wasn ' t long before he won the admiration and friendship of all. To find any one field here in which Dan did not excel would be im- possible; his eagerness and mature approach to all the challenges of Academy life made him a top contender in all his endeavors. The afternoons would find Dan on the varsity soccer, company fieldball and softball teams. The Superintendent ' s List found him no stranger, and, not to be outdone on the social scene, he could ' be found on many a weekend making the most of Annapolis ' facil- ities. In line with his diversified interests, Dan has not yet decided on a career field; one thing is certain and that is: wherever he may be, success will be there with him. 501 .

Being a per- manent member of the Superintendent ' s List and wearing stars while here on the Severn did not prevent Mike from participating in his three greatest loves — crew, smoking cigars, and the pad, in ascending order. When not en- gaged in one of the above, he devoted his time and en- ergies to the Foreign Relations Club, or coin collecting. His quick thinking and friendliness earned him the re- spect and friendship of all who came in contact with him and will assure him a successful career in the years to come. TOM LEE MINTUN Ketcham, Idaho Tom entered the Academy upon graduation from Hailey High School, where he excelled in academics, athletics, and leadership. Tom put each of these talents to use at U.S.N. A. His aggressiveness and versatility were shown in intramural boxing, Softball, football, and volleyball. Working toward a major in mechanical en- gineering, he attained the Dean ' s List and commanded the respect of all who knew him. His friendly Idaho- personality is his outstanding attribute and his initiative and perseverance will assure him a successful career. THOMAS BURNS NESBIT Harrisburg, Pennsylvania " The Neser " came to the Academy after a year of Navy ROTC at the University of Louisville. A Pennsylvanian from Harrisburg, Tom brought with him the desire and ability to excel in all of his endeavors. Most of all, Tom will be remembered for his work with the " Spiffys, " the Brigade ' s favorite popular dance band. Always an author- ity on the latest steps, his dancing and singing talent gave us many happy memories. Tom ' s singing talent also found its way into the Antiphonal Choir. A fine athlete, he was on the Plebe teams in both tennis and squash. His tough competitive spirit and his outstanding speed made him one of the top players on his company football team. Tom ' s friendly personality coupled with his quick wit and sense of humor won our friendship as well as the pretty girls we always found with him on weekends. His adventurous spirit and desire for excitement will inevit- ably find its way into a career in either subs or Naval Aviation. i 502 ROBERT MANNING NIELSEN 3ict«l ' ROBERT MANNING NIELSEN Paul, Idaho JOHN HOBART ROCKWELL Bob came to U.S.N. A. from Minidoka County High School where he left quite a memorable record. There he was both an outstanding student and athlete. He led and captained at least three of the major sports at his school. He enlarged these assets by keeping a star average and by becoming the leader in each sport he played every set at the Academy. Unfortunately for the Brigade, his varsity football play was hampered by a knee injury. His mountain of wit and tremendous sense of humor made him an enjoyable companion to all. Although his career plans are undecided, his hard work will make him invalu- able in any part of the service. JOHN HOBART ROCKWELL III San Rafael, California It is said that a transplant frequently improves the product being moved, but in making the coast to coast trip from San Rafael. California, his home, to tliis Atlantic shore, John brings along so many fine qualities there ' s hardly room for improvement. Having been born into a Navy family on April 8, 1944, " Rocky " has charted a life full of genuine concern for his associates, a dedication to the vigorous, ordered life, and the awareness coupled with wry wit that make him both an example and a joy to those who know him best. A hard worker and fine athlete, he demands of himself more than he can ask of others, and eyes critically his own life at every turn. He has a deep faith and a quiet strength, the bedrock of his personality, the prime implements of his interesting, and forceful mode of action. If to judge a person by his sincerity is an accurate measure of a man, then it would be easy to evaluate " Rocky " , and to laud him, for he is a treasured acquaintance, a classmate admired, and an imperturbable friend. 503 FIFTH BATTALION TWENTY- N I NTH COMPANY ERNEST LYNN SCHOOLFIELD ERNEST LYNN SCHOOLFIELD Pampa, Texas Ernie graduated from Pampa High School in the Texas Panhandle and then attended West Texas State University for one year. Finding the dull civilian life not to his liking he embarked upon a very promising Naval career. Em ' s easy manner and slow grin baffled many of his friends at USNA, and his sharp wit brought smiles to many faces when the going was difficult at our home on the Severn. As the forward wall of the Battalion football team and a defensive man on the fieldball team he showed the spunk and desire that are necessary in a good Naval officer. Sunday morning would find Ernie singing in the bass section of the Chapel Choir but that was one of his few breaks away from the books. The endless hours preparing for recitations and those big quizzes plus the lack of sleep show that he had no easy time with the Academic Department, but he always succeeded The Long Blue Line . ■ " • - -J.

JOSEPH STANLEY STEWART H Montrose, Michigan About the only real fault we ever noticed in " Stewie " over the years was an overwhelming compulsion to take a little more leave during the summer than Our Leaders thought was sufficient for one of Uncle Sam ' s Fighting Middies, but this urge was finally brought under control with a little friendly persuasion. Joe ' s easy-going personality and habit of always look- ing for the good in a person made him one of the best- liked and most respected members of the company, despite occasional involuntary winces we could not sup- press on hearing some of his cornier contributions to humor. A fine talent for music guided Joe to an active par- ticipation in the Drum and Bugle Corps, doing his part for school spirit with half-time shows and music-to-march- to-the-messhall-by.

In keeping with his Southern background, Frank, known to his classmates as ' " Stick " , enjoyed a gentleman ' s plebe year. Just about everything came easy to him, from academics to athletics to sleep. A regular entry on the Supt.

His drive and determination as well as his academic prowess were very well known to his class- mates. His extracurricular activities included the French Club, SCUBA Club, Officers ' Christian Union, and the Naval Academy Christian Association.

HI San Leandro, Calijornia It can truly be said that Bill knew the meaning of the expression " to work hard and to play hard. " Hailing from San Leandro, California, he was a lover of the great outdoors, which he most enjoyed viewing from behind the wheel of a sports car. His friendly smile and " Hi, Cowboy " were as familiar as the hurried pace that car- ried him to his many activities. Bill found the academics an enjoyable challenge, and he tackled a heavy academic load with vigour. He was also known for his determined effort in company sports, an effort that was well rewarded by a berth on a Brigade championship lightweight foot- ball team. The nuclear submarine fleet will find this hard- working man a va luable asset. 510 JACOB COHEN, JR. RAYMOND C. DALEY CURTIS RAY DOVE. JR. JACOB COHEN. JR.

Except for the stormy seas of plebe and youngster year Russian, academics were no problem, and weekends could find him charming any of his many female fol- lowers. A keen competitor, Jake made his presence felt on the company volleyball and heavyweight football teams as well as on the battalion rugby team. Jake also found time in his busy schedule for extracurricular activity as a member of the Trident magazine staff. His dedication to duty and his oft exhibited perseverance will surely speed some ship of the fleet toward the coveted Navy " E " in the not too distant future. RAYMOND C. DALEY West Hartford, Connecticut A product of West Hartford, Connecticut, Ray brought with him many sterling qualities which will make him a leader wherever he goes. He entered the Naval Academy after studying chemistry for a year at Providence College. An avid collector of stamps, Ray was also a member of the Academy SCUBA club. Athletically, he proved to be an invaluable member of the company cross-country and lightweight football teams. Not one to take his academics lightly, Ray spent many hours hitting the books. Sleep cannot be neglected, of course, and Ray took great pains to neglect his as little as possible. After spending part of second class summer at Fort Benning, Georgia, he re- ceived his jump wings. A marine at heart, Ray hopes to become a marine aviator. He will surely be a credit to the corps. CURTIS RAY DOVE, JR.

PERRY HENRY GRAVES III Robinson, Illinois As the nun takes marriage vows with the church, so Jerry will wed the Marine Corps, upon graduation. As an Army Brat, Perry learned early that he had to look for better and bigger things and so he headed for USNA. Here, he developed his infatuation for the world of green. He joined the Ocean Sailing Squadron in order to practice shooting from the rigging. He later became the Marine Corps editor of Reef Points, and in the Foreign Relations Club, he will always be remembered for his Viet Nam presentation. Second class summer, he dis- tinguished himself at Ft. Benning by earning only half of his jump wings. Academics have always held a special place in Perry ' s heart. At one time, with a 2.80 QPR, he was heard to swear that his grades just had to come down, because going into finals sat, took all of the chal- lenge out of his life. Supposedly, his most prized pos- s ession is his collection of all of Chesty Puller ' s used insect repellent bottles from the Haitian Campaign, which he wears around his neck as a religious talisman. His desire coupled with innate intelligence will carry him on as an outstanding Marine Corps officer. ROBERT LEE HAMILTON. JR. Bay St. Louis, Mississippi Corning from Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, Bob brought with him the Southern drawl and good-natured tempera- ment for which Southerners are traditionally well known. The Midshipman Sailing Squadron found him a valuable asset, and his efforts in the sailing realm were duly rewarded with a command qualification. His quick racket in the squash courts surprised many a challenger who found that it ' s only slow speech that is traditional in the South. Except for a running battle with the Math Depart- ment, Bob found the academics a surmountable challenge, and he took them in easy stride. He was also well read, and his sorties into literature added to many other inter- ests, made him a knowledgeable person. The fleet will find Bob both likable and capable. MARTIN JOSEPH HEALY Long Island, New York Hailing from Long Island with two years of experience at college and in the Marine Corps Reserves, Marty brought with him his knowledge of wines, women, and finances. Marty, more mature than the average plebe, found the " trifles of plebe year " , a dangerous threat to his academics. For the rest of his stay at the academy he never lost the habit of doing without sleep, and as a re- sult, was soon to be seen wearing his stars. In sports, Marty, shot-put record holder at State University of New York, was limited to " a lover of the great indoors " by a shoulder injury. He played on several champion Brigade handball teams. His mature wit and humor cannot go unrecognized, for whenever there was a comment to be made one would only have to look for that friendly smile on Marty ' s face. His thorough knowledge of the better beverages, his reliable predictions of long shots at the local race tracks, and his friendly personality made 512 ' ' m-l MARTIN JOSEPH HEALY Mait DENNIS KEITH LeROY JEROME THOMAS MAHER JR. him well-liked by his classmates. Marty will be a great asset to our Navy, both at the Officers ' Clubs and in the air. DENNIS KEITH LeROY Portland, Oregon From far away Portland, Oregon, Denny turned his sights toward a Naval career immediately after his grad- uation from high school in 1962. Throughout his four years Denny was very active in the Officers ' Christian Union and the Naval Academy Christian Association. He also took part in and led more informal Bible study and prayer groups. With his warm personality and optimistic attitude he was always an encouragement and inspiration to both his classmates and those of the other classes. A tough competitor in any sport, Denny was particularly successful at handball and played an important part in many winning Company softball and football teams. A loyal son of his state, Denny insists that Oregon is the greatest for sports, scenery and girls; he is just as de- voted to the Navy, however, and he will be around for at least twenty years to serve well in whatever branch of the service he chooses to enter after graduation. JEROME THOMAS MAHER JR. Baltimore, Maryland From Baltimore, less than an hour ' s drive away, Jerry long desired to endow the Academy with his gifts of cross country stamina, lightweight football enthusiasm, and school championship softball talent. No wonder the com- pany ' s intramural teams in these sports eagerly anticipated the annual return of " the Baltimore Flash " from the swimming sub-squad. A product of the Naval Academy Prep School and of Polytechnic Institute, Jerry quickly got down to the business of overloading in anticipation of acceptance for Nuclear Power School. He kept the night lights burning during the week, lest he should fail to worship the weekend in a befitting manner, " avec femme. " Jerry ' s friendly humor made him popular with everyone in the company, and they will long remember the sharp wit of the short man bringing up the rear of the parade formation. KENNETH MILLS KENNETH MILLS North HoUyivood, California Ken, a proud and loyal son of Notth Hollywood, Cali- fornia, came to the Naval Academy with an avid interest in anything out-of-doors, especially travelling and camp- ing. This interest caused him to succumb to the lure of Hawaii and the wilds of the Rockies, where he found great pleasure in many extended camping trips. Academically, Ken was always found on the Supt. ' s List, often sporting a pair of academic stars. His knowl- edge is well spent not only in personal advancement, but in his willing aid to others. In further academic pursuit. Ken can be relied upon as a well informed student of foreign relations and world history. Company sports, basketball, volleyball and softball, have enjoyed his active and skillful participation, both as an eager player and as a supporting manager. 513 FIFTH BATTALION THIRTIETH COMPANY MICHAEL BLAKE PARKS KENNETH NORBERT RAUCH MICHAEL BLAKE PARKS Alexandria, Virginia Coming well equipped from the sunny isle of Coronado with a layer of protective baby fat, Mike unwittingly entered plebe year. By the time winter rolled around, Mike could be found huddled by the nearest radiator after an enforced loss of all protection against the hated Annapolis winter. His running battle with the Academic Departments became a famous event. Mike, rather than " Faster than the speed of light, mightier than a locomotive ... " sleep in class, spent his free time exploring the world of Nod. His cherubic smile and sleep satiated face were seen for four years cheerfully going to combat with Science on his way down the walks of Stribling. As a member of Brigade winning handball teams, Mike was not at all slack in the field of athletics. Many were the unknowl- edgeable plebes that were surprised by his acumen in the area of Naval Aviation. His writing of Aviation History in Reef points brought out the salient points of our Air Ann. Wherever Mike ' s interests and abilities take him, we ' re certain that he ' ll be a boon companion, a welcome member of any crew. KENNETH NORBERT RAUCH Baldwinsville, Neiv York Ken, from Baldwinsville, New York, near Syracuse, was quite an avid outdoor fan. Besides interest in long camping trips through the up-state New York wilderness. Ken had a tremendous knowledge concerning automobiles and spent a great deal of free time at home working with them. At the Naval Academy his interests were many and varied. His academic prowess grew until he became a prime candidate for the Superintendent ' s List. In sports Ken played intramural soccer and field ball and liked to sail. Participation in each activity was enthusiastic and undertaken with a good deal of skill. Furtliermore, Ken took on a number of extracurricular activities at the Academy. Some of his main interests in this area were his work on the Log staff as advertising m anager and in his work on the class newspaper. Much of his own time was also spent teaching a Sunday school class at St. Anne ' s Church in Annapolis. Perhaps Ken ' s best characteristic, however, was his ready willingness to help anyone at anytime with any type of problem, academic or otherwise. 1 KENNETH CHARLES ROBERTSON N«S ANTHONY J. SARNO JR.

To one unacquainted with the place, the good feeling is due in total to its having produced a man like Ken.

Ken came to the Academy and settled down to the business of becoming a Naval officer. And in this undertaking, Robbie, as he is more commonly referred to, has demonstrated outstanding capability. Studying comes as naturally to Ken as does sleeping, and he cer- tainly doesn ' t need any extra instruction in that! His hobbies include reading, swimming, and collecting stamps and coins; Ken ' s extracurricular activities have included both the German and the Newman Clubs. Upon returning from morning classes. Ken ' s familiar cry was always, " What! No mail! Hey, where did you hide all my letters? " Ken hopes for a career with the Fleet Nuclear Sub- marine Forces. Best of luck, shipmate, may our paths cross often and may your cruise continue as successfully as its embarcation. ANTHONY J. SARNO JR. Boston, Massachusetts Brooks Bros.? no! Jake Reed? Si! Ned has earned the reputation, here, as one of the best dressed men on campus. Brought up in Boston with the Kennedys, Ned sneaked up on the Academy via a year ' s bivouac at Severn. He quickly established himself as a connoisseur of women, especially Taussig ' s, and at one time was allegedly married to a Playboy Bunny. One of his extra- curricular activities was his leadership of the " Five Year Men " , an organization of big time operators. Afternoons, he could be found in his capacity as a professional man- ager of the g.ym and crew teams, or working out on the blue trampoline. He became very close to the Academic Board during his time here and never failed to match wits with them. His keen wit and sharp sense of humor brought many smiles to the faces of his classmates. The Marine Corps may get Ned, but will lose a good man if he chooses Navy line. 515 FIFTH BATTALION THIRTIETH COMPANY LEONARD GEORGE SHELTON JR. SCOTT J. SHIELDS LEONARD GEORGE SHELTON JR. Austin, Texas Buster came to the Academy directly from Austin, Texas but making the adjustment to military life proved to be no problem for him. His personality is characterized by a warm, friendly, easy going manner and his sense of humor has enabled him to see the lighter side of frustrating situ- ations. He brought to the Academy a wealth of ability both mental and physical. Almost any night one could find him helping a struggling classmate with his academics. He shared his musical talents with everyone as a senior member of the Drum and Bugle Corps. He enjoyed athletics, and the 30th Company heavyweight football team boasted of its fine, hard hitting, right end. With his enthusiasm and zest for life and adventure, Buster will prove to be a valuable asset to the fleet. SCOTT J. SHIELDS Coronado, California Scott, coming to the Academy from sunny California with a surfing background, always rose above the every- day problems of the Academy, remaining calm and undis- turbed in every crisis. His extensive background in ath- letics in high school and at New Mexico Military Insti- tute encouraged him to star in football, basketball, and baseball; the ' Surfer ' also played on the plebe football team and was the shortstop on the varsity baseball team. He was known as one of the most skilled glove men in college ranks. On the extracurricular side, the ' Surfer ' could usually be seen on weekends dragging the prettiest girl in the Yard. Throughout his four years at the Academy, Scott had his sights set on a career in aviation and should become an outstanding aviator. 516 ROBERT WILLIAM SPENCER Rockville Centre, Long Island, New York Bob ' s honeymoon was o ver when he left the sunny shores of Severn School to enter USNA. Although the adjustment to Academy life was tedious, Bob pulled through like most of us, on sweat and ' " No-Doz " . Regard- ing academics as a necessary evil. Bob attempted studies in his horizontal office, and so became a member of tlie five year club. Youngster year, he instituted a program of max dragging and minimum weekend study . . . and it wasn ' t until the end of third class year that he discovered they really do serve chow in the messhall on weekends. On the lighter side of life at NAVY, Bob was active in the Academy Glee Club and Chapel Choir; he con- tinued his penchant for photography and vintage sports cars, as well. He also played intramural squash, tennis, and football. We are sure his ability to take life ' s knocks and come up with a smile will continue to win friends throughout his Naval career. JOSEPH KNEFLER TAUSSIG III Annapolis, Maryland Throwing snowballs at Mids marching to class and giving the Jimmy Legs a hard time (not to mention col- lecting the goodies at the base of Tecumseh during ex- ams) made coming to Navy U. a difficult switch for Joe, but being an Annapolitan also had its advantages — ask any of his roommates. Joe comes from a clan well endowed with famous Naval officers, and, even though he wasn ' t always " ready now " , Joe took plebe year and academics by the horns — soon adding stars to the ribbons, wings and stripes on his famous ' Audie Murphy ' blouse. Joe wasn ' t one to let grass grow under his feet and by June 1966 he had to his credit 60 hours of electives, a go at varsity lacrosse, plebe wrestling, jump school (where Joe fell in love with his jump boots and soon saw visions of green), escape and evasion school. Naval Academy Foreign Relations Club, NAFAC, the plebe detail and approximately 208 chances to put to good use his well developed Mid charms.

Bronx, New York PATRICK ANTHONY CALLAHAN Cicero, Illinois I m One does not need a dialectic expert to determine where George spent his youth before coming to USNA. Barnard High School in New York City ' s Bronx proudly claims George as a graduate. Having obtained a solid scientific foundation at Barnard, George entered vig- orously into the Academy academic life eager to prove the invalidity of his nickname. " Blockhead " . Stars natural- ly followed such efforts. Academic life did not capture all of his drive and spirit. " Blockliead ' s " competitive spirit, coupled with an intense hatred of P-rades, drove him to excel in Varsity sailing in the fall and spring, and fencing in the wnter. Having majored in Naval Archi- tecture, George hopes to enter engineering administration in CEC, where he will undoubtedly prove his invaluable worth to the Navy. CONSTANTINOS THOMAS BROWN Peoria, Illinois Before coming to the Academy, Costa, a native of Peoria, Illinois, left Woodruff High School and attended one semester at Bradley University. While at " Navy Tech " Costa excelled in many intramural sports. He was on two Regimental Championship teams, fieldball and basketball, and one Brigade Championship team. Batt. badminton. In his second class year, he spent a spell with Navy ' s Junior Varsity basketball team, but he still never missed a chance to discuss Kis favorite sport, Brad- ley ' s basketball. As in sports, Costa was also active in the Brigade through his work in the BAG and a short period with the Log. The " Greek " is a strong believer in the " Machiavellian " education he has received at Navy. In fact, he liked USNA so much that he decided to spend an extra year here. Costa is sure that the extra year was well worth it. Undoubtedly he will carry his driving spirit and perseverance with him throughout his career. Pat came to the Naval Academy from Cicero Morton High School just outside Chicago. As a standout in football in high school, Pat came to Navy to play ball. However, after arriving he turned his interest to wrestling, and was a successful member of the plebe and Battalion teams. Studies came relatively easily and the " Rat " had plenty of time left for sports, fun and the pad. His terrific sense of humor and general likeableness made him a favorite of his classmates. Pat hopes to go Naval Aviation, but his quick mind, willing spirit, and easygoing manner will certainly reward him with success in any branch of the Navy. SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY-FIRST COMPANY 521 JOHN WADSWORTH CONSOLVO JR. JAMES HENRY COWARDIN LOUIS RALPH DiRIENZO JOHN WADSWORTH CONSOLVO JR. Richmond, Virginia Jack came to the Academy after a year in Prep school in Washington. Being an Army brat,, he quickly swung into the military life which he encountered, and made the most of it. Afternoons could always find him playing football or softball. usually as a starter for the company ' s teams. An avid competitor on and off the athletic field. Jack had no trouble getting right into the academic mill. Never one to show off, however, he played his cards carefully and kept his grades just where he needed them. A member of the Plebe Detail as a second classman, " Iron Jack " became all too well-known to the members of the new fourth class. A native Virginian, Jack enjoyed the advantages of living close to home, and did his best to keep the fairer sex in close contact. Careerwise, finding the briny seas not to his liking. Jack looks forward to a future in green. JAMES HENRY COWARDIN Newport Neivs, Virginia " Athletic Jimmy " is one of those rare natural athletes. Equally at home on a tennis court, football field, or wres- tling mat, Jim was a hard working member of the Varsity Tennis team and was always ready to lend a helpful hand on various Company teams. Although he was willing to work hard at the Academy, when there was a party Jim was one of the first ones there, and could always be found in the thick of things. Jim grew up around sub- marines in Newport News, Virginia, and for years has had a desire to join the Silent Service which no amount of sales talks on other programs could dispel. His help- ful attitude has won him many friends here and will con- tinue to do so long after graduation. LOUIS RALPH DiRIENZO Eastchester, New York " The Golden Guinea. " after spending two years at Iowa College in New York, came to USNA with a spirit that would not be dimmed by upperclassmen younger than himself as a plebe and by the rigors of his own studies as an upperclassman. Although well-known for his close calls after every leave or weekend and before every formation, yet somehow always on time, he has been a model for anyone to follow in his choice of virtues to achieve and his sense of values. His skill as a guitarist ma de many pleasant moments for close friends and the NA-10. Growing up near the Big City taught him to be a success as a plebe sununer boxer and an inspiration to his teammates in Company and Battalion contact sports. After playing and coaching high school football, it was a disappointment not to make Navy ' s 150 pound team because of injuries — Lou was never one to quit. Lou will definitely be an asset to the Navy in whatever field he decides to concentrate his endowments. LAWRENCE EDWIN FISH East White Plains, New York Larry reported to the Naval Academy the day after his graduation from White Plains High School in New York. When plebe summer finally ended, " Fish-Head " got down to the business of the studies he took seriously. However, not one to waste time when the books would not meet him halfway, Larry found the pad a welcome al ternative. He was no stranger to the Superintendent ' s List and at the end of youngster year he received the " Office of Naval Intelligence " Harry E. Ward Medal for excellence in German. Putting this knowledge to good use he pursued a major in German. After school Larry 522 m SIXTH BATTALION ' ' ' ' ' ' " " tt N-, THIRTY-FIRST COMPANY LAWRENCE EDWIN FISH DAVID ATWOOD FITCH was active in Company softball, where he was known as " the Slugger, " and Company soccer, a carryover from his high school days. He lent his talents as a trumpeter to the concert band. Larry was well known for his ready wit and outspokenness. Inventing nicknames for any- one was his specialty. One of his most rewarding ex- periences was being a member of the second class plebe summer detail, where he practiced the principles of good leadership that will make him a truly outstanding Naval officer. DAVID ATWOOD FITCH Falls Church, Virginia As the son of a Naval officer, Dave called many places his home, the most recent of which was Falls Church, Virginia. With this background, it was small wonder that Dave, in addition to being one of the more easy- going and likeable members of the Brigade, was extremely knowledgeable about the Naval Service and the people that compose it. He was an avid sportsman, and eagerly accepted the challenge of competition, whether excelling as a member of his Company cross-country team or being on the receiving end of an infrequent punch in Brigade boxing. Although academics were never a problem for Dave, he had a special talent with things mechanical ; few knew their way around under a car hood any better. This fact, coupled with a liking for speed, will probably make Dave a natural for his present goal of a career in Naval Aviation. EDWARD IVEY FUTCH Lake Placid, Florida ' " Wingnut, " as he is known by his classmates, is always a cheerful soul and is the embodiment of that virtue with his friendly smile. A true southern gentleman, and one of Florida ' s finest, Ed attended Columbian Prep EDWARD IVEY FUTCH for one year before coming to the banks of the Severn. His keen interests in music, sailing, hunting, and fishing are well displayed by his active participation in the Drum and Bugle Corps, the Dinghy Sailing Team, and the Gun Club. Also a keen competitor in Company sports, he proved to be an outstanding member of his company ' s fieldball, cross-country, and softball teams. An untiring worker, especially in academic endeavor, Ed has often served as an inspiration to many of his classmates. This fine trait, coupled with his easy-going personality and out- standing sense of humor, will prove to be invaluable assets in his promising career as a Naval officer. 523 .. d» S M SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY-FIRST COMPANY DAVID LEE GURGEL DAVID LEE HARTSFIELD DAVID LEE GURGEL Fond dii Lac, Wisconsin What Einstein and Don Quixote didn ' t give the world, Dave will. From . . . " Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, sir " . . . it is yet a debatable topic whether " Herbie " came to Navy or vice versa. Being a member of the " 4.0 club " , quite often one could find a bewildered classmate seeking Dave for an answer to why E=;MC ' , only to find him with a suspicious cord leading from his portable radio to his ear while reading the latest best seller. After spending a year at the University of Wisconsin, Dave made many a good friend at USNA as a result of his dry wit and quick smile. When not engaged in designing his 30% more efficient internal combustion engine, Dave could be found in the weight room, or, in the springtime, on the seawall " taking in a few rays " . Dave ' s future sights are set on Nuclear Power School and the silent service. NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION GRANT DAVID LEE HARTSFIELD Tallahassee, Florida A " swamp rat " from sunny Tallahassee, Florida, Dave was a lover of the great outdoors, including among his interests hunting, fishing, and fresh-air sports. However, when he came to USNA, he found Maryland ' s climate much to his disliking. As a result he spent as much of the winter set as possible safe within the maternal confines of Mother Bancroft. Having mastered the Academy ' s weather, Dave continued to cope successfully w ith the Academic De- partments. A Mathematics major, he compiled outstanding grades in virtually every subject, wearing stars during his last two years at the Academy. He seemed to some a bottomless well of knowledge, and was frequently found lending academic assistance to a host of classmates less abundantly endowed than he. Dave took the same hard- working attitude toward all areas of endeavor, both pro- fessional and academic, and in doing so won the profound respect of all who knew him. " Snake " , as he was often affectionately termed, was notably successful in his amo- 524 WALTER MUNCASTER HIGGINS III RICHARD RAWUNGS HOBBS rous forays beyond the grey walls. Possessing the desire and ability to excel in whatever his future holds for him, Dave will almost certainly be a standout in his career, be it the surface fleet, submarines, or Naval Aviation. WALTER MUNCASTER HIGGINS III Medford, Oregon From Medford, Oregon, and proud of it, Higs has made many friends since first arriving at USNA. Ener- getic and responsible, " Tweety " is well known for his ability to perform the most difficult assignments and to do them well. He has been active as a class representative, a member of the German Club, and an outstanding per- former in intramural cross-country, football, and tennis. With an unbelievable power of concentration Higs has had no trouble with any of the Academic Departments and has always stood at the top of his class. It seems that Nuclear Power School will be in line for him after gradu- ation, followed by postgraduate work and a Ph.D. Any- one who applies himself, as does H ' gs, is bound to have a promising future ahead of him. RICHARD RAWLINGS HOBBS Indianapolis, Indiana Hailing from Indianapolis, Dick, better k nown to his classmates as " Railroad " , gave up his scholarship to Notre Dame to enter the Academy and make a Navy life his career. Having graduated tenth in his high school class, Dick was determined to keep his high scholastic standing at Navy. Because of his perseverance and hard work he was an occasional member of the Superintendent ' s List. Carrying over his high school love for football, Dick became a mainstay on the Company heavyweight team. He will be remembered by all who confronted him on the gridiron. Dick, quiet in manner but conscientious in his work, will be an outstanding credit to the Service in the " black shoe " Navy. R. CODY HULL Princetoivn, Indiana Straight from God ' s country, Cody left Princetown, Indiana, to join the ranks of the boys in blue. Beginning plebe year on the football field, Cody became the hard- hitting fullback of the plebe lightweights. With that first stripe came a library and record collection that seemed endless and you could often find him curled up with a good book. Well known throughout the class, Cody often took it upon himself to arrange post-game football affairs and many of us are indebted to him for many happy memories. Afternoons found Cody on a football or baseball field and his desire to win and determination proved a valu- able asset to each of his teams. An avid sports car and hunting enthusiast. Cody has proved himself a capable and mature leader and graduation will find him looking toward Naval Aviation and what is sure to be an out- standing career. 525 SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY-FIRST COMPANY JOHN JOSEPH LORDEN BRUCE EDWARD LECHNER Huntington, L. I., Neiv York Bruce came to Navy from Walt Whitman High School in Huntington, L. I. Although not one to grind away at the books. Bruce ' s grades were always high and he was a frequent member of the Superintendent ' s List. When not at the field house staying in shape, " Flex " could be found singing for the Glee Club or Chapel Choir. During 2 C year he began to solo for the Naval Academy ' s NA-10. In the spring " Zipper Knee " could always be relied on to help carry the 6th Batt. lacrosse team on to another winning season. Undoubtedly Bruce was known as having a girl in every port. Not one to see the darker side of 11 o ' clock, except perhaps to write a letter on one of his OAO ' s, Bruce was a firm believer in a good night ' s sleep. Like most of the " boys " Bruce hopes to go Naval Avia- tion, nevertheless his friendly personality will make him a success in whatever selection he makes. JOHN JOSEPH LORDEN Katonah, Neiv York What sort of man reads Playboy? Almost any mid, but Jack is one of those who understands it. His urbane manner can be traced to his home port in Westchester County, New York, which he assures us is only an hour from The City. By hard work he evaded the traps of the departments at the other end of Stribling Walk and maintairred a respectable QPR. On the basketball and volleyball courts he proved that a pack per day doesn ' t really stop an athlete, it just slows him down a little. His voice was often heard in song in the hall and also on Sundays in the choir. His hopes of being an ace dirigible pilot stifled by progress, he ' ll settle for anything else that flies. On graduation day Jack will look forward to Florida and wings of gold. DAVID EUGENE LOVELADY Birminc,ham, Alabama Dave came to Annapolis from Ramsay High School in Birmingham, Alabama. Since the beginning of plebe summer when he first became interested in crew, the " Tiller Tiger " could be found almost any afternoon in the stern of an eight-oared shell or hard at work in the boathouse on Dorsey Creek. His determination en- abled him to rise to the position of first boat coxswain, an outstanding achievement. He is well known to his classmates as an efficient organizer and a natural leader, and his keen sense of humor will never be forgotten. Although small in stature, Dave is a rugged individual always ready to join in the fray. He somehow manages to glide through his studies without cracking a book and has a wonderful knack for being able to reply with a terse comment on almost any subject. Dave came to Navy with a goal in mind and should be an outstanding officer and a credit to the Naval service in the years to come. 526 m i DAVID EUGENE LOVELADY DOUGLAS EDWARD MAY gordon rutherford McDonnell DOUGLAS EDWARD : IAY South Bend, Indiana Doug came to the Academy from South Bend. Indiana where he attended John Adams High School. Being ac- tive in sports and student affairs, he continued these in- terests at the Academy by taking an active part in the intramural sports programs, and also by being a member of the plebe and varsity golf teams. His extracurricular activities included the Chapel Choir as well as the Glee Club. Doug never had trouble with academics and so his name was often found on the Superintendent ' s List. His ability to think in trying situations, coupled with abil- ity to make friends easily, will be a big asset to him in his career as a Naval Aviator. GORDON RUTHERFORD McDONNELL Neu ' Rochelle, Neiv York Rusty came to the Academy from the shores of Long Island Sound at New Rochelle. He evidently liked what he saw about the Navy because he maintained a keen in- terest in that subject throughout his years here. As a result of this interest, he acquired a broad knowledge of all aspects of the Navy with emphasis on Naval Aviation. Either with or without the Navy, Russ plans to fly. On weekends when money and time permitted, he took private flying lessons toward getting his own pilot ' s license. During winter leaves he usually was found engaged in an equally thrilling endeavor — his favorite — on the ski slopes of the various Eastern resorts. Under his super- vision and planning evolved the best post-Army Game parties his classmates ever had. Definitely, the blending of his determination, enthusiasm and varied abilities will produce an outstanding officer of the Naval service. MICHAEL JOSEPH OMOHUNDRO Arlington, Virginia Mike enjoyed all the advantages of being close to home while here. His outgoing personality often resulted in par- ties at his home the night before the end of every leave period. In high school, Mike developed a tremendous in- terest in crew, which he continued here. He was cox- MICHAEL JOSEPH OMOHUNDRO swain of the plebe crew who conquered the national championship in 1963. Mike ' s interests covered a wide area. High on the list were pursuit of the fair sex, parties where this pursuit could be accomplished at close range, the study and use of Spanish, and travel. His success in the first of these was evidenced by his seeming affinity for 5x7 photograp ' hs which he kept in his locker. He was continually promising to send the inactive ones back to their donors, but their continued presence led one to be- lieve that " Snake " (a nickname his actions earned him) looked on these as mementos of battle. Mike ' s winning personality and his willingness to work are sure to make him a success in any field of en- deavor he may choose. Mike ' s main ambition upon grad- uation is graduate work in language, which he will cer- tainly accomplish without any trouble. 527 SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY-FIRST COMPANY JOHN ARTHUR ORCUH RICHARD WILLIAM SMITH JOHN ARTHUR ORCUTT Holyoke, Colorado A weathered Colorado rancher, John decided to render his valuable services to the Academy after spending a year at Case Institute in Cleveland, Ohio. Most noted for his academic prowess, John was always ready to share some of his infinite supply of right answers with whoever sought his advice. Refusing to be limited to studies only, " Orks " played a year of football at Case and rowed 150 lb. crew here. His presence was well known throughout the Brigade since he was an active member of the Ring and Crest Committee, Brigade Activities, Naval Academy Foreign Affairs, and the Russian Club. Insistent drive and a pleasant personality contribute to make John a sure suc- cess in whatever field he chooses. FULBRIGHT SCHOLAR England RICHARD WILLIAM SMITH Brooklyn, New York Leaving the New York skyline and James Madison High behind, Smitty arrived at " Canoe U " with a basketball under one arm and a stack of records in the other. His sense of humor and warm personality brought him through the rigors of plebe year and the sounds from his room during youngster year were a trademark of his easy going attitude toward the problems of life at Navy. A regular visitor to the Superintendent ' s List and a wearer of those coveted stars, Smitty was never one to lose an hour or two in the bed while still finding time to help his classmates the night before that big p-work. Leading several intra- mural basketball teams to Brigade championships and playing semi-pro baseball he proved himself an out- standing athlete. Leaning toward flight training, Smitty will be a valuable asset to the field of his choice. " Wanna go for a ride, li ' I ball? " »ILLIAM SMITH ARTHUR WAYNE STAECKER Richardson, Texas Wayne comes from the city of Richardson. Texas, and stands tall and proud as most Texans do. No one knew Wayne when he reported to the Academy, but his friendly smile, mature attitude, and willingness to help others quickly made him a close and respected friend to all those who knew him these past few years. " Hook " did very well in academics and took a keen interest in Com- pany and Rattalion activities in sports such as basketball, cross-country, squash, and te:inis. He also shared his interest on a Brigade level as he was a member of the Brigade Activities Committee as well as the Naval Academy Sailing Squadron. He always did his best to get the job done and often succeeded with outstanding results. Wayne ' s career in the Navy will surely prove to be rewarding as he has every attribute needed to be an outstanding and respected officer. STEVE MICHAEL ZIENTEK Houston, Texas Steve came to us from Houston, Texas. During his stay here he managed to divide his time pretty well be- tween football, studies, and a good time, excelling in all three. Academics were never too difficult for Steve, allowing him to slice through his regular subjects a nd many more besides. His prowess in this respect was dem- onstrated by his standing; first in Russian for two years. " Zunt " was active in the Brigade Honor Committee, Russian Club, and the Newman Club, his professional ability being demonstrated by his success as Battalion Commander during second class summer.

RICHARD ALBERT BONA t F, !io«« ' ' DONALD FREEMAN BERKEBILE Northbrook, Illinois The " old man " ' from Chicago enjoyed a wide and varied career before becoming a midshipman at USNA. After spending three years as a Purdue " boilermaker " , he enlisted in the Navy and spent two years as a white hat, coming to the Academy from NAPS, Bainbridge. As a plebe, Don came into his own as one of the famous Phinque ' s Phantoms, roaming far and wide throughout the vast spaces of Bancroft Hall with his endless supply of water balloons. When not planning some devious attack on the enemy, he could usually be found struggling with the Dago Dept. in his attempt to master Portuguese. The only athletic trouble he encountered was the expanse of blue-green over at the natatorium, but each year he managed to struggle through. He contributed much to Company sports teams, especially as an outstanding mem- ber of champion cross-country teams. Don hopes to journey to Pensacola after graduation to earn the wings of a Naval aviator, but his quick wit, fun-loving attitude, and sense of responsibility will serve to make him a success in whatever he does. THOMAS EDWARD BLOUNT, JR. Rockville, Maryland Tom came to USNA via the Columbia Prep route and immediately integrated himself into the system with an enthusiasm that was contagious. Ahhough Tom and the Academic Departments never were on the best of terms, the struggle was not an overwhelming one and many was the evening Tom could be found working on his second love, model cars. His first love, girls.» had to wait until weekends when many a young lady enjoyed the pleasure of his company. A very versatile person, Tom showed his skill on the athletic field as an outstanding member of various Company sports. Off the field, most of his time was taken up with singing for the choir, or playing his guitar as a member of the " Sideboys " . Through all of this Tom has shown a tremendous interest in the Navy. He tentatively plans to continue his major in Oceanography, but no matter what his field, the Naval Service will obtain an outstanding addition to its ranks. RICHARD ALBERT BONA Bethlehem, Pennsylvania A Pennsylvania city boy, " Bones " arrived at USNA with the blessings of (he Secretary of the Navy and the U. S. Naval Reserve. His only letdown came when they took away his sideburns and car. However it didn ' t last for long and he soon found himself in the thick of things. After spending an enjoyable plebe year on his head in the shower, Dick moved in to do battle with the Academic Departments, especially the Mathematics Department. Though many of these encounters were close, he always managed to emerge the victor. In the field of athletics he contributed to the track team and various Company sports. Other than the blue trampoline, girls served to occupy most of his free time. Dick has his sights set on a career in Naval Aviation, but no matter what, it is certain that he will be an asset to the Naval Service both as an officer and a personality. SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY-SECOND COMPANY 535 M »» M LEE WAYNE BRYANT MICHAEL STEWART CHANDLER LARRY VINCENT CHMIEL LEE WAYNE BRYANT Birmingham, Alabama Lee came to the Academy after two years at Birming- ham Southern College, a short stint in the Navy, and a year at the Naval Academy_ Prep School. Due to his mature outlook and receding hairline, in reciprocal order, he quickly was tabbed " the old man. " Being a native of Alabama, he has developed a desire to stand high in everything he does in the best traditions of that Alabama deity Paul " Bear " Bryant (no relation). If Lee wins his battle against blindness he hopes to make his mark in the Destroyer Navy. His sharp wit, friendly manner, and mental ability will surely open the doors of success in his service career. MICHAEL STEWART CHANDLER Annandak, Virginia Mike came to " Canoe U " fresh out of Annandale High School, sporting a ready smile and a desire to get into the swing of Navy life. Though plebe year often erased the big grin, Mike never lost his desire to learn or to engage in the nearest athletic contest. His conscientious efforts with the books were rewarded in full, as proved by his respectable grades in the engineering courses; and he repeatedly demonstrated his athletic ability and love of sports by playing with the company heavies in the winter, and by running on a Brigade Championship cross country team in the fall. Mike was not, however, a person for all work and no play. Indeed, he devoted a good number of his weekends to various and sundry amorous adventures while at Navy, and he could be counted upon to have a " cool " girl for the upcoming hop or formal. He lived for June Week, to say the least; the lanes and coves of Sherwood Forest will never be the same without him. The qualities which earned Mike the respect and friendship of his classmates — his easy laugh, his willing- ness to help the other person and his good-natured tem- perament — are sure to make Mike a w elcome and success- ful member of any Navy squadron in his chosen field of Naval Aviation. LARRY VINCENT CHMIEL Baltimore, Maryland Larry graduated from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute and spent three years in the Marine Corps before coming to USNA for what he considered four years of temporari- ly assigned duty. He barely seized a toehold on the beach in his invasion of the Foreign Languages Depart- ment but received the strong support of Math and Science Departments. He was active in a number of intramural sports, showing special interest in rugby and judo. His enthusiastic participation in the Foreign Relations Club exemplified his interest in foreign affairs and current events. Any other spare time he could salvage was spent attempting to resolve the clash between USNAR and his interest in the fair sex. Larry was always counting the days until he could wear the " Marine Green " again and is certain to make a valuable contribution to that proud organization. CHARLES EDWARD CRONAN JR. North Attleboro, Massachusetts Charlie came to USNA directly from high school in Massachusetts, bringing with him a smile and a strong Boston accent. During his four year stay, he lost some of the accent, but not the smile. Never one to sweat aca- demics, he was frequently on the Superintendent ' s List and was always willing to give his classmates a helping hand. Charlie was an avid sports enthusiast; in the after- 536 SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY- SECOND COMPANY tt « ¥ ; Ran(ili ;olil3ipn ' ■., Vil » CHARLES EDWARD CRONAN JR. PAUL HOWARD DONALDSON noon he could be found on the athletic field where he participated in Company cross country, lightweight foot- ball, and Batt track. His quick wit and love of fun made him a welcome asset at company parties. Provided his eyes don ' t betray him. Charlie foresees a career in Naval Aviation. PAUL HOWARD DONALDSON Lee, Florida Paul came to USNA from Lee, Florida, via the " Silent Service " and NAPS. Always a devoted harrier, he spent most of his afternoons with the cross country and indoor and outdoor track teams — often much to the chagrin of Navy ' s opponents. Though he sometimes had difficulty matching the speed of the Academic Departments, he still found time for the " N " Club, the Portuguese Club, and tlie Brigade Hop Committee. But second only to running, Paul ' s favorite pastime was escorting his " one and only " . A stubbornly devoted Navy man, he made his youngster cruise on the ' " EAGLE " and the following summer he earned his parachutist ' s wings at airborne school. Though primarily interested in submarines, Paul is certain to be a valuable asset to the Naval Service wherever he goes. FULBRIGHT SCHOLAR Brazil JOHN BRYAN DRAKE Baltimore, Maryland Jack came to the Naval Academy after a very short jaunt from Baltimore. A graduate of Baltimore Poly- technic Institute, Jack has since made his mark on the Academy and vice versa. Determination to do well in everything he attempted and good-naturedness character- ize all of " Jocko ' s " endeavors, both athletically and academically. A natural runner, he led the Company to JOHN BRYAN DRAKE four successful seasons in cross country. Never one to look die other way when a pretty girl passed by. Jack made many new acquaintances as a midshipman. An all-round guy. Jack can be spotted in sports by his ag- gressiveness, in bull sessions by his determination, and at the table by his appetite. Jack has long aspired to fly, but whatever capacity he may serve in, he will be a credi to the Academy and his country. As a good mid- shipman, a fine friend, and an outstanding classmate, success cannot but follow him. 537 M SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY- SECOND COMPANY »o9 MANUEL ESTELA JAMES WILLIAM FLEMING MANUEL ESTELA Arecibo, Puerto Rico Manuel, a native of Arecibo, Puerto Rico, flew in to USNA after an action-packed tour of high school fol- lowed by a year at college. A standout in Catholic Choir, French and Spanish Clubs and various outdoor studies, such as soccer, cross country, field ball and intramural track, Manuel plans to turn his energies into wings of gold and a berth in Naval Aviation. JAMES WILLIAM FLEMING Cleveland, Ohio Jim came to Navy as captain of his high school track team. " Flems " , a native of Cleveland, Ohio, continued in track through plebe and youngster years. In the spring of youngster year he finally gave up track to devote more time to academics and girls. Taking overloads in Russian for his major, he was forced to give up girls in the fall of second class year in order to spend even more time studying. Jim ' s greatest loves while at the Academy were always desserts and folk music, especially the Kingston Trio. Jim, always ready for work or a little extra fun, was a valuable asset to Company sports and parties. Second class summer in Pensacola sold him on Naval Aviation, and upon graduation he hopes to go back to earn his wines. 538 WILLIAM ROBERT GEIB Jersey City, New Jersey Bill came to Annapolis from Jersey City where he excelled in foothall and haseball. After giving plebe base- ball a whirl, he settled down to Company and Battalion sports where he enjoyed knocking heads with the best. His aggressive play led the hard charging defensive line on tlie Brigade Championship football team. Never one to burn the midnight oil, but always standing well up in his class. Bill was envied by many who found the studies harder. He made friends easily and passed through the rigors of plebe year hampered but little by his accent. The Gun Club commanded his attention on non-dragging weekends, but he did his best to make these infrequent. Confident and capable. Bill ' s aspirations to join Naval Aviation can not but lead to an outstanding career. ALAN " W. " JUDELSON New Haven. Connecticut Only four days after Al graduated from Hillhouse High School in New Haven, Connecticut, he appeared at the gates of the Naval Academy. Having been a Merit Final- ist, he validated five semesters of Academics. After an initial adjustment period, he and plebe year got along together. Never having too much trouble with the books left Al time for many extracurricular activities. These included WRNV, where he was co-production director (he dreamed up the Pick-Your-Pap Contest) and the Shield ' s Sailing Team. They quickly expanded to include the class paper, triathlon and, of course, dragging. With such varied talents, Al earned the respect of his class- mates here as he will in the fleet after graduation. WILLIAM ROBERT GEIB ALAN " W. " JUDELSON 539 M STEPHEN JOSEPH KOWALICK JR. ROBERT HAROLD LEWIS STEPHEN JOSEPH KOWALICK JR. Potlsville, Pennsylvania After spending; a year in the fleet and a year at NAPS, the " Beast " , as he is affectionately called by his classmates, came to the Academy to. turn in his white hat for a half-inch gold stripe. Upon his arrival from the heart of the coal-mining district in Pennsylvania, the Beast immediately set out to try to keep his name off the " unsat list " . Being no academic slash, he successfully managed to survive the turmoils which the Academic Departments constantly subjected him to. The majority of his free time was either spent on the athletic field, where he liked and played all sports extremely well, or at his desk writing his daily letter t o his O.A.O. A con- scientious worker and a master of two foreign languages, Steve has his eyes set on a career in Naval Intelligence. With his hard work and determination, he is certain to become a valuable officer. ROBERT HAROLD LEWIS Quakerlown. Pennsylvania Lew came from Quakerlown. Pennsylvania, where he won more varsity letters than anyone else ever to gradu- ate from his high school. He earned his Navy ' " N " play- ing lightweight football and. in addition, was one of the best intramural basketball and baseball players at the Academy. Besides his driving interest in sports, Bobby had a dynamic personality as well as a sense of humor that never stopped. He never seemed to have any diffi- cult problems with his studies, even though he didn ' t push the books a great deal. Lew was present at most of the big social events and always seemed to be able to find time to drag. His career interests center about Navy Air where he will undoubtedly be well received. A modem replenishment team helps keep us on the move. ...Lc.,i . JAN CHRISTIAN LINGLE WILLIAM AKINS MILLER. JR. WARREN EUGENE MORGAN JR. JAN CHRISTIAN LINGLE Shawnee Mission, Kansas Rambling here from Shawnee Mission. Kansas, Chris had never seen the ocean before coming to USNA. With him he brought his golf clubs and a friendly Midwestern personality that helped find him numerous friendships. If Chris wasn ' t battling with the academics, you could always find him helping AT T get a little richer while pursuing some amorous adventure. The weekends were busy with contests in varsity 150 lb. football or varsity golf or dragging or, sometimes, studies. In the summer, Chris wouldn ' t let any grass grow under his feet. He was always traveling to some distant land or crossing the U.S., adding to his store of tales. Chris ' smile and com- petitive spirit will undoubtedly help him in his future efforts and successes. WARREN EUGENE MORGAN JR. New Castle, Pennsylvania Quiet and dependable. Butch came to the Academy from New Castle, Pennsylvania where he was both a fine student and athlete. While at the Academy, he continued to excel in academics, making the Superintendent ' s List often while majoring in Aeronautical Engineering. Foot- ball being one of his favorite sports, he participated in plebe and varsity 150 lb. football. Not one to sit still for long, he spent many of his summer leaves traveling. His agreeable personality and determination to get a job done will serve him well as he embarks on his career. WILLIAM AKINS MILLER. JR. San Diego, Calijornia Bill knew what he wanted from the very first day of plebe year. As a Navy Junior, he knew what Navy life is like and was ready to ' do what was necessary to become a good Naval officer. All those who met Bill knew that if anyone would succeed at the Academy, he would. Bill pursued an Engineering major and devoted most non-study time to athletics or dragging. His boyish fea- tures surprised many of us when it came to basketball, football, baseball or tennis for he played all sports as if he had been at it all his life. He was also a consistent member of the French and Public Relations Clubs where his cheerful spirit was his prime asset in making friends for the Navy. Bill always had time for his classmates and many were the nights when his room was the haven for academic discussion or the classroom for some less bril- liant classmate. In June of 1966 when Bill becomes an Ensign, the Navy will acquire a devoted and qualified officer. SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY-SECOND COMPANY 541 . 1 RALPH RICHARD MORRIS THOMAS ERNEST MURPHY DAVID CLINTON PRICKETT, JR. RALPH RICHARD MORRIS Fort Worth, Texas After graduating from Arlington Heights High School in Fort Worth, Texas, Dick spent two years at the Marion Military Institute in Marion. Alabama. Less than a month after graduating from Marion, he found himself enclosed within the walls of USNA. He found academics to be no stumbling block and his name appeared on the Super- intendent ' s List quite frequently. His time was spent in studies, intermural athletics, and often, in slumber. Al- though he professed to be a confirmed bachelor, his friends refused to believe him, always predicting his trip down the aisle. Dick ' s easy going and friendly manner won him the friendship of all his associates, and his op- timistic outlook will serve him well, wherever his Naval career niav take him. Tu cson, Arizona THOMAS ERNEST MURPHY It was Navy ' s gain and Arizona ' s educational system ' s loss when Tom decided to travel across the country to come to the Academy. He came well-prepared and main- tained a star-average in spite of his unusually heavy academic schedule. Classmates usually flocked to Tom for academic aid. Since studies never presented a problem to him, Tom managed to get his share of pad time. Tom ' s efforts weren ' t directed only at academics and his hard- driving personality was felt on the gridiron with Navy ' s " Mighty Mites " , the 150 lb. football team. He very ably filled the quarterback slot; to keep in shape in the off season, Tom went straight to Rrigade Boxing. This hard- hitting southpaw earned the respect of many an opponent. Tom ' s friendly personality and " toothy " smile were never hidden, especially when there was a good looking girl in the vicinity. Tom ' s aspirations include Naval Aviation, but he will be a success no matter what phase of Na 7 life at- tracts him. DAVID CLINTON PRICKETr. JR. Fairmont, West Virp,inia Dave came to USNA after spending a year in the NROTC at the University of Virginia; the transition from madras sports jackets to Navy blues sometimes proved challenging to him. His athletic interests gravitated towards crew and he pulled an oar for both plebe and Battalion teams in a sport which was absolutely novel to this native of laridlocked West Virginia. Dave ' s main academic interests were German and the social sciences and he never quite reconciled himself with the other Academic Departments. He was an active participant in the German Club and the Drum and Bugle Corps but had special interest in the Foreign Relations Club. En- thusiasm for the latter and for current events and his re- fusal " to allow his schooling to interfere with his edu- cation " led to many a lively discussion during otherwise dull study hours. Second class summer confirmed Dave ' s previous convictions concerning Naval Aviation, and he is certain to do well in this, his chosen field. WILLIAM EDWARD TAYLOR Wilmington, Delaware Coming to the Academy directly from Conrad High School in his native Wilmington, Delaware, Bill stepped right into the swing of things by playing plebe soccer. " Half-track " followed this up by playing " Varsity soccer and was a member of the 1964 National Champions. Between term papers and soccer seasons though. Bill found time to play company heavies where his athletic assets were put to excellent use. Always a star-wearer, hard work and conscientious studying rewarded all of Bill ' s academic endeavors. Once travelling or on liberty though, all thoughts of studying or academics seemed to be left to the winds; youngster cruise and activities at various company parties bear up this fact well. Never 542 WILLIAM EDWARD TAYLOR MICHAEL THOMAS TRACEY , Bill siepp t. soccei. one to overly concern himself with women, Bill took time off now and then to drag here at Navy. Bill aspires to Marine Aviation and has the family tradition to uphold in this category. His winning personality and tough com- petitive spirit are prime reasons why Bill will be outstand- ing wherever he may serve. MICHAEL THOMAS TRACEY Fairfield, Connecticut The unofficial representative of all redblooded Irish- men at the Academy. Mike was known to all his buddies as " the redhead " for obvious reasons. Coming to the Aca demy after a year of college at Fairfield University, Mike somehow managed not to let the hurried Academy routine push that bright receding hairline back any further. This i.iid was about as colorful a character as you could find. If he was not studying (and he tried to keep that at a minimum) Mike was keeping the girls dangling by those just-frequent-enough letters or trying to get parties started in any room in which it looked like too much studying might be going on. Mike always kept his grades up, being especially proficient in the chemistry and mathematics courses. On the athletic field Mike en- joyed just about all sports and on the weekends he usual- ly could be found in the gym or on Thomson Field. Of course he found it hard to pass up a Saturday informal or those big hops and thus kept the social side of the scale well-balanced too. Mike belonged to the German and Public Relations Clubs and his main outside interests were traveling and getting in long days of golf. Mike ' s interest upon graduation lies in Naval Aviation. With his great personality and level-headedness he will be a fine officer and a real asset to the Navy. MARVIN BENJAMIN CHRISTOPHER WILES Denver, Colorado From the ski slopes of colorful Colorado, came MARVIN BENJAMIN CHRISTOPHER WILES " M.B.C. " , with violin in hand. His musical talent and knack for the extra-curricular field, brought a welcome member to the Chapel Choir, Glee Club, and Drum and Bugle Corps. Marv, trading the violin for the guitar, will be most remembered for founding " The Sideboys " , the second folk group to gain fame at USNA. As an intra- mural competitor in cross-country, football, and bad- minton he was an outstanding go-getter. Never too wor- ried about his academics, he was always thinking about higher things — such as Naval Aviation, where he hopes to serve upon graduation. 543 M ' .•:» ' . • SECOND CLASSMEN Back Row: K.

A potential forty year man ever since he was old enough to memorize Naval history books, it was only natural that he would spend much of his time with the YP squadron and major in Operations Analysis. At the same time he man- aged to keep his sea legs in shape by enthusiastically run- ning around Farragut Field with the Battalion rugby team in the spring. By faithfully studying in the library every night. Art had good grades and was usually flirting with the Superintendent ' s List. His warm personality won him many friends here and will stand him in good stead in his drive toward making CNO. His only hurdle is to choose between the route of nuclear power or Naval Avi- ation to get there. No matter which one he elects, success will certainly be his. PAUL ANDRUCHOW Stoughton, Massachusetts Paul, a native of Boston, came complete with the famous accent and Bostonian sense of humor. Upon arrival, he had no trouble adjusting from civilian to military life, and after plebe year he found time to spend on many extracurricular activities. " Chooch " , as he was nicknamed, was an active member of the Brigade Activi- ties Committee and Camera Club. He also spent many hours as one of the party-loving " Cement Mixers " , shar- ing his guitar and singing with all who dared to listen. Chooch soon discovered that with a little studv his sharp mind had no trouble with the Academic Departments, with the exception of French. During athletic periods Paul could always be found lifting weights or engaged in some Company sport. His weightlifting contributed much to his physique and when he combined a winking left eye with a flexed right bleep, no girl could resist. Paul could always be depended on to come through with subde wit when it was most needed, and this contributed much to his personality. His enthusiasm for the service and his marked capabilities will make him a fine Naval Officer. SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY-THIRD COMPANY 547 jiTm MARIO ANASTACIO BALTAZAR RAYMOND EVERETT GADBERRY. JR. CHARLES ROBERT GRUTZIUS MARIO ANASTACIO BALTAZAR Aparn, C a gay an, Philippines Mario was one of the few people ever to have two plebe years, as he came to the Naval Academy from Aparri, Cagayan, Philippines and the Philippine Military Academy. As a Brigade boxer, the " Manila Mauler " saw much of McDonough Hall. Academics came easy for Mario and he completed two majors during his stay on Severn ' s shores. An active member of the Spanish Club, he was always willing to give his help to anyone fighting the " Dago " department. The tremendous drive and con- genial personality which made him so many friends will make Mario an outstanding addition to the Philippine Navy. RAYMOND EVERETT GADBERRY, JR. Virginia Beach, Virginia Ray came to the Naval Academy straight from the U.S. Marine Corps. Better known to the WRNV listeners as the " Gadabout-about-Bancroft " , he came to the shores of the Severn with bars and stars in his eyes. He traveled throughout the United States, because of a father who was first an Air Corps aviator and then a commercial pilot. Flying must have rubbed off on him and got into his blood because he hopes to head for Pensacola and flight training when he leaves the banks of the Severn. Never a scholar, Ray has managed to " plug and grind " his way through four years at the Naval Academy. He had many brushes with the sub-squad but never quite managed to make the team but made the ultimate sacri- fice of a " sinker " and went under water where he be- longed when he joined the SCUBA Club. Throughout his four years Ray was associated with the National Cham- pionship Lacrosse Teams as well as WRNV and the Photo Club. With a large set of gold wings glittering in the sky, Ray looks forward to graduation and a new career. CHARLES ROBERT GRUTZIUS Tarzana, California Chuck comes from the " Golden " state of California and proudly, and loudly, proclaims himself so. Thus, one would not be too surprised if it is to sell the California sun that he goes around with a warm, cheerful and out- going personality. His readiness to help others and his keen sense of humor win him new friends easily and make him one of the most popular guys around. Ask a plebe to get a screwdriver, or a steam iron, or anything, and ten to one it will be Chuck ' s. Chuck came to Annapolis via NAPS after attending Fire Control Technician School. At the Academy he is an avid ocean sailor and a seasonal squash player. Beyond this he has his mind set for a rewarding career as a Naval officer and shows a high level of motivation. His enthusiasm, diligence, clear and realistic thinking, plus a well rounded personality, should take him far in his chosen field. REGINALD GEORGE HAMMOND Shafter, California Reg graduated from Shafter High Schaol, in his home town of Shafter, California, and entered the Navy for two years before entering the Naval Academy from ]) APS. He always had a way with young ladies and up- held Naval tradition by leaving a string of broken hearts in every port. He enjoyed participating with the YP Squadron and was a defensive stalwart on the company 150 lb. football team. The academic department never gave him any difficulty and most weekends would find him on liberty. Although easy going and possessing a quick sense of humor, Reggie ' s sense of responsibility and his maturity will assure his success as a Naval Officer. 548 SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY-THIRD COMPANY REGINALD GEORGE HAMMOND THOMAS BARTLETT HUFFMAN H!!?. one Adon ' In li THOMAS BARTLETT HUFFMAN Shelbyville, Tennessee Tom came to the Academy after a year at Bainbridge which, many people claim, introduced him to his first pair of shoes. Originally from a small town in Tennessee called JVormandy. he now lives in Shelbyville, the " Walk- ing Horse " capital of the world. ' " Punjab " , as he is known to his friends, didn ' t take long to become familiar with the rigorous life of a midshipman, dividing his time equal- ly between sleeping, eating, and sports. He even found a few minutes now and then for his books. Academically, he never had much trouble, and athletically, his talent for running is exceptional. Music, however, is his one true love and the Chapel Choir. Glee Club, and Musical Club Show have had the benefit of his abilities in this field. His guitar playing led him to write for and help or- ganize the " Cementmixers " , a guitar group that brightened the life of many a party. Many gitls have professed un- dying love for Tom, but one at a time they are turning up married to someone else. All Navy to the core, the Destroyer Force will find Tom an enthusiastic and capable officer, more than willing to learn. Navy will be his life for not a day less than thirty years. GERALD LEE KERR Alexandria, Virginia When Jerry came to the Naval Academy, he had already seen much of the world through the eyes of an Army brat. Although born in Minnesota, he migrated to and adopted the South, Virginia in particular, as his home. In spite of his tone deafness, Jerry spent many an hour laboriously memorizing the fingering and strokes needed to make him and his guitar a welcome spark at any party. His spasmodic gyrations on the dance floor in- GERALD LEE KERR spired the naming of a guitar and singing group, " The Cementmixers, " which he helped organize. During exam weeks, " Tecumseh " as he was nicknamed, could be seen scurrying to class dodging pennies on his way. Always a connoisseur of fine women, he could be found almost every weekend escorting some young lovely through the yard. Being a conscientious worker, Jerry put studies second only to guitars, sleep, women, food, sports, and politics. His quick learning ability combined with a superior intelligence will enable Jerry to go far in the service life. 549 M ' M B NICKOLAI S. KOBYLK NICKOLAI S. KOBYLK Seattle, Washington Nick, known as tlie " Russian " , came to the Academy with an outstanding high school athletic record. As a senior he was an All-District in baseball, a standout on the basketball court, and a rugged tackle for Texas Mili- tary Institute. But, Nick decided to try something differ- ent at the Academy. A letterman in gym and crew, as well as a member of the Scuba Club, Nick was, in every sense of the word, an all-around athlete. Not only was Nick known for his athletic ability, but even more for his high sense of duty and dedication. A good student, both diligent and conscientious, he is respected and well-liked throughout the Brigade. With such a background Nick is going to be, without doubt, an excellent officer. I i BRUCE PETER DYER DAVID WILLIS MOSIER JR. EDWARD JAMES OHLERT BRUCE PETER DYER Norfolk. J ' lrpinia Bruce came to the Naval Academy straight from high school and the well-traveled life of a Navy junior. Once here he continued his traveling ways, spending two summer leaves in Europe. Plebe year he picked up lacrosse and played for all four years. Besides the lacrosse field, one could usually find him working out regularly or on the blue trampoline. Never a great student. Bruce did do well enough to earn a major in foreign languages, namely French. After graduation, Bruce is going to Pensacola where he hopes to follow a very successful career in Naval Aviation with the possibility of later taking advantage of his linguistic ability with overseas dutv. EDWARD JAMES OHLERT Detroit, Michigan After graduating from Austin Prep in his home town of Detroit and attending Michigan State for a year, where he was a State Fencing Tournament finalist, Ed came to the Naval Academy as one of the top fencing prospects of our class. He has since won class numerals in both plebe and varsity fencing while at the same time taking several overload courses. He w " as also outstanding in intramural football and softball and participated in the French Club, Gun Club, and Foreign Relations Club. Ed ' s easy-going personality and ready sense of humor have never failed to win him friends in any situation, and doubtlessly will contribute to his inevitable success as a career Naval officer. i DAVID WILLIS MOSIER JR. Greenville, I orth Carolina Dave, a thoroughbred Southerner from Greenville, North Carolina, showed himself, while at the Academy, to be a serious young man, applying himself to all facets of Academy life. He had little difficulty with academics, overloading and still earning his stars. He participated willingly in extra-curricular activities as a member of the Concert Band and Foreign Relations Club. Dave helped out on Sundays at St. Anne ' s Episcopal Church teaching a Sunday School class of Annapolis High School students. He showed himself to be an above average athlete, participating in wrestling and plebe and varsity gymnastics. Lnfortunately for the young ladies, Dave is a confirmed bachelor and left behind a string of broken hearts in cruise ports each summer. Dave ' s drive and sense of responsibility, tempered with his quick- witted humor, will make him a valuable addition to the Naval Service as a career officer. SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY-THIRD COMPANY 551 SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY-THIRD COMPANY RICHARD A. OLSEN CHRISTOPHER MICHAEL REDDINGTON RICHARD A. OLSEN Decatur, Georgia Ole, whose last military relative was a mule driver in the Civil War, came to USNA after completing one year at Georgia Tech. He played a variety of sports, but seemed happiest when running around a track or swinging a tennis racket. As a major in German as well as an active member of the Foreign Affairs Club, he helped in the planning of the German Club activities. Ole ' s in- terest with the Navy is to serve in ASW. CHRISTOPHER MICHAEL REDDINGTON Ralihcin, New York A product of Baldwin, Long Island, Chris was voted the most ou tstanding basketball player on the Island during his senior year. Known to his friends as the " Rooster " , Chris will always be thought of when people speak of Navy basketball; he was truly one of the finest athletes ever to come to the Academy. In the spring Chris could be seen playing defense on the lacrosse squad as well as assisting in company activities. Well noted for his classic wit ( " ... you ' re running with your choke out " . . . ) Chris possesses a unique attitude toward many problems. His ability to lead and make friends has made him one of the most liked and respected midshipmen at the Academy. Wha ' tever his field, whether it be line, air or the corps, Chris will be an outstanding officer. 552 RICHARD PAUL SNAIDER Mounlain View. California Fresh from his achievements at Robert E. Lee High School in Montgomery, Alabama, Dick diligently applied himself to every aspect of Academy life. Always striving for excellence, he continually demonstrated his academic prowess in every department, despite early difficulties with plebe engineering. In addition to many hours spent with the books, Dick managed to find time to excel in intramural sports, notably handball and football, while keeping up his interest in firearms through the Gun Club. Primarily a Weapons major, he was able to broaden his outlook by participation in the Foreign Relations Club and NAFAC. A submariner at heart, Dick plans to spend his future beneath the sea. His perseverance and devotion to detail will make Dick a valuable asset to the Naval service. ANDREW PETER SOSNICKY Neivark, New Jersey Fresh out of Seton Hall Prep, Andy arrived at USNA from Newark and lost no time in continuing his high school standards. The stars he sported were doubly com- mendable in view of his fiercely guarded re putation for being in the pad by taps every night. His interest in world affairs found expression via the Foreign Relations Club, and his athletic ability earned him a position on the undefeated Battalion football team. Andy was often called " SOS " and this nickname might be interpreted as standing for several things. One could be " Syllabus Of Sports " , in recognition of his capacity as the most extensive walking, talking sports encyclo- pedia in the Brigade. Another, might be " Slayer Of the Severn " . Lady Slayer, that is, because Andy ' s most famous characteristic was his uncanny knack for attracting beau- tiful women. Ever since he attained upper class status, pretty girls seemed to flock to him like flies swarming around the honey. However, the reverse of that might be more accurate, namely honeys swarming around the fly- boy, since Andy ' s ambition is to wear the golden wings of a Naval Aviator. RICHARD PAUL SNAIDER ANDREW PETER SOSNICKY 553 M Close, but no cigar. RUFUS LACKLAND TAYLOR RUFUS LACKLAND TAYLOR III Washington, D.C. Having called many places home as a Navy junior, Cousin Rufe is perhaps best at home spinning records for the Academy ' s radio station, ' WRNV, or on the bounding main as a member of the ocean sailing squad- ron. Rufe and the academic load have never been the best of friends, but through constant hard work, per- severance, and late lights, he has been successful in his courses. Though primarily a yawl sailor, Rufe enjoys spending the winter engaged in fieldball action for the thirty-third company " Mels " . With his ability to develop a winning attitude in sports and academics. Rufe should present to the Navy a very capable officer who favors a submarine or line position. WILLIAM JOHN VORWALD WILLIAM JOHN VORWALD Gary, Indiana As a native of Gary, Indiana, Bill, the " mouse " , was a product of Lew Wallace High School. The " wonderful world of sport " occupied much of the scrappy Hoosier ' s time; the field house weight room or track was often his home. After the company re-ahuffle, " mouse " cast his lot with the thirty-third company " Mets " where he was a standout in company soccer and fieldball. After attaining his charter membership in the " Tecumseh Club " , his many friends and midnight oil helped Bill win future encounters with the academic departments. Those who fly will receive a valuable addition when he wins the highly prized wings of gold. LANCE ALAN WILMARTH Portland, Oregon Three thousand miles and the Northern Rockies have separated Lance and his hometown of Portland, Oregon, during his four years at the Naval Academy. Coming to An napolis from David Douglas High School, he brought a lot of interest and desire with him, and kept this spirit throughout the four years. A three-year letterman in wrestling, tennis, and baseball in high school, " Lancer " brought these sports abilities to USNA with the deter- mination to win and do his best. He earned his share of intramural numerals. His excellent academic record in high school carried over to the Academy; he was among the top academic men in the Company. His other activities included the Spanish Club, and the " enjoy life forever " club. After graduation, Lance hopes for a post-graduate appointment, and then, on to a fine Navy career. In any billet he chooses, the Navy will have an outstanding officer doing his best in everything he does. DENNIS LEETH ZVEARE Falls Church, Virginia Denny came to the Naval Academy from the ranks of the Northern Virginia weekend warriors. While in high s chool he developed considerable musical talent which he shared here with the glee club, choir, and musical club show. During his spare hours he practiced his first love, his guitar, and became one of the original members of the " Cementmixers ' , a guitar and singing party group. Denny ' s love of fun, women, wine and song, and the nearness of his home made him the perfect man to host many famous spring and term leave blasts. Always an opponent of the academic departments, hard study enabled him to maintain respectable grades. He is a handball and swimming enthusiast and has contributed much to his Battalion teams. While here his main physical accomplish- ment was the addition of six inches to his waistline, which he claims is a sign of good living. Denny ' s perpetual smile and extended helping hand have made him one of the favorites among his classmates. He is a Navy line man through and through, and with his enthusiasm, abilities and personality he will be a credit to the Navy.

Milwaukee, Wisconsin Milwaukee, Wisconsin, gave up one of its favorite sons in 1962 and sent " R.B. ' ' on the trail to the Naval Academy. Coming straight from high school. Bob decided to take it easy with the academics from the start, but always managed to stay one step ahead of the Academic Departments. When not participating with the Sailing Squadron or pistol team, he could be found enjoying good music or trying to keep the girls in the vicinity on their toes. Bob spent youngster summer at paratroop school at Fort Benning. Georgia, but decided that the Army life was not for him and decided to travel as a midshipman during his remaining summers. Always ready for having a good time, Bob leans toward Naval Aviation as a future, but whatever his choice for a career in the Navy, Bob is sure to be a credit to the Service. RICHARD HENRY BARCHI Yardley, Pennsylvania After spending two years at the University of Michigan, Dick came to the Academy intent on a Naval career. While here, his personal drive was shown by his being an active member in many and varied organizations, including the Catholic Choir, the Italian Club, and the " N " Club. His capacity for work, both mental and physical, was so pronounced that hardly a minute of his time was wasted. In the afternoons, throughout the year, you could most assuredly find Dick at Hubbard Hall where he be- came a mainstay on the varsity lightweight crew team. Moreover, as a student Dick was among the best, major- ing in both mechanical engineering and Italian as well as taking other extra courses of study to satisfy his wide- spread interests. Although energetic in every sense of the word, Dick never rushed himself. He ran his life in a casual, or- ganized manner, using his innate common sense very effectively. Nothing fazed Dick, but at the same time he took a genuine interest in everyone and everything. Wher- ever Dick may go, he will definitely give his best because of his determination to excel. BURKE PROGRAM JOHN HERBERT BEAKES Delta, Pennsylvania John hailed from Delta, Pennsylvania, a borough of 900 just over the line from Maryland. After graduating with distinction from Kennard-Dale High School, he went on to Bullis Prep to become class valedictorian. He came to the Academy via the Naval Reserve Program which he entered while at Bullis. While at the Academy, John proved again that studies were just something to get A ' s in and take more of. His extracurricular interests lean heavily on baseball, a subject which occupies a large part of his interest. He played plebe baseball before shift- ing to Company basketball and football, and still found time to participate in the Russian Club and cover sports for the Log. John ' s natural ability coupled with his force- ful personality can only add up to a fine Naval officer and scholar for the Navy. SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY-FOURTH COMPANY 559 M i ROBERT EVERETT BEAL ROBERT EVERETT BEAL Fresno, California Coming to the Academy after a year at Fresno State College, Bob found little trouble in adjusting to his new east coast environment. Academics never posed much of a problem for him, and although not a slash in every subject, he was always well above danger and found plenty of time to hit that pad. Although he was not very sports- minded before coming to Navy, he soon took a liking to Company volleyball and heavyweight football where he enjoyed many hours of rough play. A wizard with his sax, Bob was a standout in NA-10: in addition no one will ever dispute the fact that Bob was the number one fast dancer in our class. His quick wit and fine per- sonality will be definite assets to him in whatever field he chooses upon graduation. STERLING NORMAN BENNETT Hallandale, Florida Born on D-Day, in New London, Connecticut, " Ben " has since called six states home, his most recent being Florida. Climaxing an outstanding high school career as captain of three sports and president of his class, he was appointed to the Academy where he hoped to continue his success. Finding Navy athletics much to his liking, Ben has participated in plebe crew and soccer, ocean sail- ing, Company basketball and softball, and Battalion foot- ball. He also enjoyed singing for the Chapel Choir. Aca- demically things were a bit more difficult than high school; but not to be one who accepted defeat, he consist- ently came up with the " big grade " to pull himself out of the fire. After pulling off one of his patented saves, Benny, Whop and the Weasel would usually celebrate, and this is one field of endeavor where Benny never for- got a number or a curve. With his future planned as a certain " teacher ' s pet " while he patrols the " wild blue yonder, " Ben will continue to wear his uniform with pride, a standout in whatever he does. MICHAEL THADDEUS BUGELSKI Buflalo, Neiv York Bugs, hailing from Buffalo, New York, had a little dif- ficulty making the change from high school life to Navy routine, but once into the swing of things he managed to get along well enough. Liberal arts were Bugs ' meat, and he shone in literature. German and navigation courses. This preference carried over into his taste in music, and he participated vigorously in a campaign of passive re- sistance against the " enemy, " pop radio stations. His high school experience in crew served him on both the plebe and Battalion teams, while during the rest of the year he killed time with lightweight football and volleyball, until he could again venture onto the mighty Severn. At first a Navy Line man. youngster cruise and aviation summer channeled his mind to the sky. He hopes to follow the prop pipeline into a patrol squadron, where he wiU surely be a credit to the Navy and his country. ALBERT WILLIAM CAIAZZA Granville, New York In June of ' 62 the " Rabbit, " God ' s gift to east coast femininity, left a huge gap in the playing fields of Gran- ville High by coming south to Navy. His active interest in contact sports endured through his Academy years as shown by his fine records with the 150-pound football, rugby, and Company fieldball teams. Off the playing fields. Bill proudly sported stars on his uniform, symbols of the high academic achievement he attained. Always ready to make a new friend, Bill ' s quick smile and easygoing manner won him many new comrades wherever he went. 560 SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY-FOURTH COMPANY ALBERT WILLIAM CAIAZZA DONALD VERNON COLLEY 1 coa- ' i : reaJy ..-■-in?

DONALD VERNON COLLEY Pensacola, Florida From whence he came he is destined to return. Hailing from the cradle of Naval Aviation, Pensacola, Florida, Don someday hopes to return in a duty status to earn his wings of gold. A " big man " on the Company light- weight football and cross-country squads, he could quite often be found on Farragut field during his free time. However, all was not play for the Rat. Many thought his name should be Pad Rat since the time not spent on the playing field was usually spent working on a research paper concerning the sleeping habits of midshipmen. Don, also, was very active in the Naval Academy Christian As- sociation and the Officers ' Christian Union. Don ' s per- sonality and keen sense of humor will carry him to great heights. He will be a true officer and gentleman. ALFRED GEORGE CORDES Pontiac, Michigan As a Marine junior. Skip long ago set his sights on be- coming a Marine pilot. If it has wings, he knows about it. Very little aviation news escapes his watchful eye. In the event that his plans don ' t materialize, there won ' t be much to worry about as Skip has that coveted ability to adapt to his surrounding. Everyone who knows Skip knows his quick sense of humor and his readiness to join any kind of action that resembles a good time. Forever quick with a laugh or a joke. Skip is always ready for " another day at Navy. " He is an active member of the Foreign Relations Club where he gives vent to the in- ALFRED GEORSt CORDES tellectual side of his personality. He prefers outdoor sporta and can usually be found outside competing the year ' round. Whether " Marine Air " becomes a reality or not, Skip ' s future holds great promise for a fine officer. 561 FRANKLIN JEROME DAY WILLIAM JAMES DIFILIPPO FRANK GALVIN DUSERICK FRANKLIN JEROME DAY Denver, Colorado Descending upon us from the mile high city, this lanky Coloradoan soon became known to us as " Spider. " A dis- arming smile and rollicking sense of humor soon won many friends for the " Spider. " Frank ' s great delight in sports came in rowing for the plebe and varsity light- weight crew teams. He also boosted the company squash, volleyball and cross country teams. Frank ' s academic interest lay mainly in the sciences, and he was able to complete many additional courses in this field. When not struggling with the scholastic chores, Frank could normally be found catching a nap or writing letters. Never one to shun the fair set, he enjoyed drag- ging when time and money allowed. With his winning per- sonality and academic background, Frank will certainly find a place of valuable service in our Navy. WILLIAM JAMES DIFILIPPO Washington, D. C. Bill graduated from Ryken High School, Leonardtown, Maryland, in 1962, and came to the Academy after a couple of months in the fleet. He found plebe year dif- ferent from anything he had experienced before, but the knowledge of the Navy tradition in his family kept him going when things were rough. During his four years here, Hill could usually b e found in his room or out on the athletic field. Because he majored in aerodynamics. Bill spent many weekends battling the academic depart- ments; but he always found time to keep himself in shape. His sporting interests ranged from basketball through cross-country, football, and Softball. We will re- member Bill not only as a hard-working, serious student, but also as a credit to the Brigade, distinguished by his bearing and personal appearance. Whether Bill heads just for the clouds or, in fulfillment of his life-long dream, to the stars, we know he will be a success. FRANK GALVIN DUSERICK South Boston, Massachusetts South Boston born and bred, Frank graduated from Boston Latin High School and spent three years at Boston University in Army ROTC. giving him a good back- ground to pick the career he really wanted. During his years at USNA. his course was straight and true towards that goal. Frank showed his tremendous capacity for hard work in his dedication to lightweight crew where he put his muscle on a port sweep. Off the river, he could be found working on a diversified academic program which included majors in Russian and nuclear science, a schedule which did not allow for wasted time; there was none. His hard work and concentration always more than got the job done; but there was an easy side too, in a willingness to discuss a serious problem, just plain talk, or get lost in a good book. A determined, optimistic and enthusiastic outlook is the road sign for a successful career no matter what Frank may do. LARRY ALLAN FROISTAD Ludlow, South Dakota Larry arrived at USNA directly from the plains of South Dakota. Although USNA was Larry ' s first en- counter with the Naval Service, he quickly adapted him- self to the daily routine of Mother Bancroft. Being an avid track fan, Larry was able to find time to work on the hop, step, and jump, an event he participated in for the Navy thinclads. At other times during the day. he could be found either raising his QPR. resting in the clutches of the pad monster or highlighting past experiences with a group of his classmates. Lar extended his athletic abil- ities to Company cross country where he was a standout member of the Brigade champion team during second class year.

His main interest lay in nuclear power and nuclear sub- marines: from this came his major in Nuclear Science. All his hard work and outstanding academic achievements had an ultimate goal — his interview with Admiral Rick- over for selection for nuclear power school after gradua- tion. One of Frank ' s greatest dreams is to have command of his own submarine some day. Outside his academic interests, Frank enjoys good music, sports, and good food. For this last, Frank is known among his classmates for having a " well-rounded " personality. With his hard drive, determination and excellent officer-like qualities, Frank is destined for an outstanding and rewarding career in the Navy ' s nuclear sub-surface fleet. ATOMIC ENERGY COMMISSION FELLOW DONALD BRUCE HASLETT Geneva, Neiv York After finishing high school in Geneva, New York, Don arrived at USNA with a fierce will and determination to do his best. He has done just that and more. A well rounded athlete, Don added his experience in lacrosse, wrestling, and cross-country, to name a few, to make in- tramural sports more enjoyable and competitive. Not lacking in academic ability, he was always eager to help those in need. With a tight schedule, being a member in DONALD BRUCE HASLEH the Concert Band and the Drum and Bugle Corps, Don still managed to find time to practice on his " horn. " Study hour would find Don taking a particular interest in phys- ics and oceanography overloads. Attaining his stars in youngster year through hard study, he still managed to lead a varied social life. Whatever branch of the Navy he elects, Don will always be a good man and a tough competitor. 563 1 SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY-FOURTH COMPANY liiik- GERALD WAYNE KNOTT JAMES MICHAEL LOOME GERALD WAYNE KNOTT Bainbridge, Ohio Jerry came to the Naval Academy via the Naval Acad- emy Preparatory School. Having a fine high school ath- letic background, he waived varsity sports for the intra- mural level where he was an outstanding player for the champion sixth battalion football teams and champion company basketball and softball teams. The Navy academic life posed no real problem for Jerry; he was occasionally on the Superintendent ' s List. His studies did tak e valuable time away from his love of playing bridge and pinochle and workouts on the " blue trampoline. " Jerry ' s easy- going personality won him many friends throughout his four years at Navy. With a great pride in his home state of Ohio, he would jump at the chance to defend the " Buck- eyes " and the " sports capital of the world. " Seldom dragging, he spent his Hberty hours in Baltimore and Washington indulging in the favorites of any mid. He channeled his extracurricular activities towards the Public Relations Club where he covered many sporting events for the press. Intent on a career in Naval Aviation, Jerry will be a welcome addition to the long line of Navy men. JAMES MICHAEL LOOME Severna Park, Maryland A Calvert Hall (Baltimore) graduate, Jim entered the Academy after a profitable year at BuUis Prep. Never bt e to terrorize the Academic Departments, he has, none- theless, managed to keep his head a shade above water by performing absolute miracle ' s each finals week. On the extracurricular scene, Jim ' s endeavors have been extremely diverse, ranging from the Foreign Relations Club to Y.P. Squadron to Brigade Boxing. In keeping with his interest in the surface Navy, afternoons spent navigating the Chesapeake were among his greatest pleasures. Travel B64 and good music are also among his favorite pastimes. " Zoomer " ' ( so called bv his classmates ) combines calm- ness under pressure and the ability to administrate ef- ficiently with a knack for getting along with people; such traits seem to indicate he will perform capably, what- ever his future field of endeavor.

Graduating from Loy- ola High School, he enlisted and spent a year brushing up at NAPS. At the Academy, Mac ' s main interest was centered around the lacrosse field where his eight years ' experience proved its point. Co-captain of the plebe team, Mac started youngster year for the varsity and did much to help win the National Intercollegiate Title and his N that year. Continuously waging a battle with the academic departments. Mac burnt a lot of late lights out: always one to play it close, he enjoyed the challenge. During spare time in pursuit of the good life, he could usually be found escorting a certain Bostonian around the campus. Although undecided about his plans for a career, Owen will probably render his services to the " big, grey ships " where his affable personality and compatibility will make him a welcome member to any ward room. MYRON LEASON OGDEN HI Hingham, Massachusetts " Dog, " as he is known by his classmates and friends, came to the Naval Academy from Hingham, Massachusetts.

Brownsville, Texas Guy came to the Academy from Brownsville, Texas, via the Marine Corps and NAPS with the intention of ful- filling one of his major goals in life — becoming an of- ficer in the U.S. Marine Corps. Never caring much for academics, Guy preferred to exert himself on the athletic field rather than in the classroom. Always an aggressive competitor, Guy earned his " N " as a guard on the 150 pound football team. When not on the athletic field or in the weight room, he could be found in his room daydream- ing about good times back in Texas, listening to one of his numerous Brenda Lee albums, reading material on guerrilla warfare, or sleeping. His quick wit and likeable personality won him many a friend at the Academy and will be a great asset to him in the years to come.

S =- m JOHN JAMES SULFARO RICHARD WACLAW STAROSTECKI DOUGLAS DEAN VAUGHAN JOHN JAMES SULFARO Roxbury, Massachusetts From his home in Roxbury, John (Suzy) joined what he since has occasionally referred to as the " real Navy. " A natural desire to succeed soon brought him to NAPS for a year, after which he became a member of the Class of 1966 at USNA. A good Navy background and a genu- ine interest in most of the known sports readily adapted Suzy to the routine of a Midshipman. If it was a question on sports or Navy air, Suzy prob- ably had the answer. Navy football found an eager fan in Suzy, who made a valiant attempt during plebe year to become a member of the " Big Blue. ' After academics. Suzy could be found leading the com- pany in volleyball, football, and even cross country team. Although a member of the BAG and PRC, Suzy found time for an occasional nap between classes. A winning personality and sense of humor won for Suzy the friend- ship of his classmates and an occasional member of the opposite sex. He was never heard to complain about not being able to find enough drags. Upon his commissioning in 1966, the Navy and Suzie will be integrated, insuring a benefit to both. RICHARD WACLAW STAROSTECKI Montclair, Neiv Jersey Rich was born in Scotland in 1944, and after living in Scotland and England until 1952, he came to the United States and became a citizen in 1957. Rich has lived in New Jersey since he came to the United States, where he attended Essex Catholic High School in Newark. Coming to the Naval Academy directly from high school. Rich came through a plebe year that wasn ' t always easy, to take his place in indoctrinating plebes. Rich was a hard working student, earning his stars during young- ster year, and taking overloads in math and nuclear en- gineering. He was active in intramural sports, especially company cross-country, soccer, and football, and could often be found in the squash courts if he wasn ' t in his room listening to Johnny Mathis while studying or writ- ing to his favorite girl back home. DOUGLAS DEAN VAUGHAN Prospect Heights, Illinois When anyone mentions the city of Chicago, Doug ' s name always comes to mind. The Academy was very lucky to have attracted the Windy City ' s number one fan to the east coast, for he added much to his class and his school. Intensely interested in anything and everything, Doug could usually be found attending a meeting of some sort, be it the Russian or Foreign Relations Club or the Naval Academy Christian Association. His after- noons were usually spent in the wrestling loft, and on the weekends, it was no strange sight to see him running the rocks along the seawall or playing a pick-up game of football on Thompson field. Even with all his extracurricular activities, Doug stead- fastly pursued his Russian major. Having a great in- terest in the Russian people, Doug spent much time study- ing the history and government of Russia as well as learning to speak the language. A trip to Russia during one of his summers here at the Academy was one of Doug ' s big dreams. Doug ' s constant smile and good sense of humor are well known and will make him a real credit to the Naval Ser- vice. 567 . dl SECOND CLASSMEN Back Row.- B. S. Willis, R. T. Scott, Jr., D. C.

Johnny was an Army brat for seventeen years before he left the nomadic Army camps and found himself a home in the U.S. Navy. He enlisted in the Naval Reserve and had attended submarine school at New London, standing quite high in his class, and had qualified for his " silver " dolphins while still only a student at Columbian Pre- paratory School in Washington, D.C. Johnny earned his stars while a youngster and was always noted for his friendly, and honest personality, and his willingness to share his time and energy to anyone in need. He spent his afternoons on the gym deck and in the rifle range where he performed well for Navy.. On the weekends, he could often be seen discussing, intently, the philosophical concepts of the state of marriage with his " Uncle Charlie and other close friends. This young man promises the Navy a dedicated and dynamic officer and will be a strong pillar of this country ' s security. GEORGE LESTER BECKER Garland, Pennsylvania George, better luiown by his friends as " The Beak " , came to the Naval Academy from a year at Columbian Prep. An excellent athlete, George wasted little time get- ting on the plebe training tables in cross country, indoor track, and outdoor track. George won his Varsity " N " in 150 Pound Football. He has that type of personality that . . . well . . . it ' s just impossible not to take a liking to him after you ' ve met him, an invaluable asset whether he chooses a career in the Navy or civilian life. Second class summer sold George on Naval Aviation. His four years after graduation will almost assuredly be spent in that program. After that . . . whatever he chooses — suc- cess. PETER KAY BRYAN Fori Meade, Maryland After spending a year in the Army and attending the Militarv Academy Preparatory School, this " Army Brat " finally got on the right course by entering the Naval Academv. Once here, " P.K. ' s " military background and natural aptitude for the service stood him in good stead by enabling him to quickly adapt to the Academy ' s rigor- ous routine. As a service junior, Pete has lived in many parts of the country as well as abroad, and the only reason that presents itself for his allegiance to the Lone Star state is the " Sandblower ' s " natural inclination to associate himself with something big. Although small in size, Pete possessed ample athletic ability to earn his numerals in both plebe and varsity squash and tennis. Pete was never one to sweat studies as his " steam " and " skinny " profs will attest, but natural ability in math and way with words were always sufficient to pull him through no matter how much time he spent dragging members of the fairer sex on week ends and talking to them on the phone during study hour. There is no doubt that " P.K. " will make a fine officer in whichever branch of the service he ' chooses, but if those baby blue eyes of his hold out I predict a career in Naval Aviation for Pete. SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY- F IFTH COMPANY M 571 DWIGHT BURNETT CALDWELL EDWARD JAMES CARLSON CHESTER A. CICCARELLI DWIGHT BURNETT CALDWELL Memphis, Tennessee Coming from Memphis. Tennessee, Dwight traveled to the Academy after attending Memphis State University for two years. Spending most of plebe year on the squash and tennis team training tables, Dwight easily adapted himself to the rigors of life here at Navy. Continuing with varsity squash and tennis during his upper class years, Dwight combined his strong desire to win and his natural ability to become a prominent figure in the teams ' successes. Drawing from his southern gentleman charm and talents, Dwight, a likable guy, enjoys swooning the members of the fairer sex. In all. his easy going manner should make it easy for Dwight to succeed in whatever field he chooses after graduation. EDWARD JAMES CARLSON Bronx, Ne,v York Ed is a graduate of Stuyvesant High School in New York City, where he excelled in both math and science. At the Naval Academy he continued his proficiency in these subjects in both the regular curriculum and the electives he mastered. His special interests in the academic field included mechanical and aeronautical engineering. As a result of his diligent work Ed occasionally had the honor of wearing stars. His athletic ability was a big factor in leading the company cross country team to two Brigade championships. He was also an active member of the Newman Club. Despite the rigors he encountered in that first year he always maintained his jovial sin- cere attitude. This jovial nature carried over to his out- side activities and he was a welcome addition to inform- al as well as formal functions. His sincere attitude and quest for perfection will undoubtedly assure him of a successful career as an officer. CHESTER A. CICCARELLI Newburg, New York Traveling from the land of Woo Poo, Newburg, New York. Chet came directly from high school to the Academy. This was so direct a route that he missed his high school graduation exercises so that he could be sworn in with the rest of the class. While at Newburg Free Academy, he signed up with the reserves and spent his senior summer in " boot " training. Upon his arrival, he was well prepared for the rigors of plebe year and handled them with com- parative ease. Since then, he has never failed to move forward nor to cease his conquests in fields such as aca- demics, athletics, and the fairer sex. Being active in the Brigade, Chet has been on the Honor Committee, Christ- mas Card Committee and the Reception Committee. Pres- ently interested in submarines, he has his goal set at Nuclear Power School although Naval Aviation still seems like a possible choice. Whatever his choice, the Navy will be gaining a very capable officer. CHARLES EDWARD COFFIN HI Neivburyport, Massachusetts Ed came to the Naval Academy after having spent a semester at the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut, a semester at Northeastern University in Boston, and a year at NAPS. He easily ad- justed to the rigorous routine of Academy life and his pleasant personality and good humor won him many friends. Ed was an avid bridge player and often during study hour he could be seen enjoying the game. He was a friend to all and was always willing to help anyone. As of now. Ed plans to make the Navy line his career, a branch in which he will definitely be a valuable asset. 572 m SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY- FIFTH COMPANY CHARLES EDWARD COFFIN I it til JOH JOSEPH DRAPER III Paterson, New Jersey John came here directly from East Side High School in Paterson, New Jersey where he was editor-in-chief of the school newspaper. He was quick to adapt to the ways of the Navy. With him, John brought an undiminishing supply of spirit and energy. He extended these to the Brigade in many ways. John was a member of the Hop Committee. He was a key factor on a Brigade-Champion cross country team and supported the Big Blue by don- ning the garb of a cheerleader. It has been John ' s desire to add his name to the list of astronauts, and it is the opinion of all that he has what it takes. THOMAS IRVIN EUBANKS A ' eu- Wihninglon, Pennsylvania Tom came to the Academy from New Wilmington, Pennsylvania, by way of NAPS, where he was a standout on the gridiron. A broken collar-bone and a broken leg curbed his football aspirations on the plebe team and the varsity, so he settled for being a 35th company main- stav on the intramural level. Tom never had any trouble with the books and found time to work a Political Science major into his busy schedule. As busy as he was with sports and studies, Tom was always available for a friendly gab session or an occasional game of bridge. When not playing a sport of one kind or another, Tom liked to spend his leisure time listening to good music and reading good books. His quick wit and fine sense of humor have won him many friends and should con- tribute, along with his enthusiasm for work, to make him a fine officer. THOMAS IRVIN EUBANKS 573 SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY- FIFTH COMPANY WILLIAM ALLEN HORN JAMES ARTHUR HOUGH ROBERT FREDERICK JOHNSON ROBERT FREDERICK JOHNSON Glen Head, New York Buzz matriculated at the Naval Academy directly from North Shore High School on Long Island. He brought with him a desire to continue the excellent academic and athletic traits that had marked his high school years. Athletically, soccer prowess earned him a spot on the plebe and varsity teams, climaxed by the National Championship. As goalie, he blanked the opposition in the championship game. Academically he did not attain the same heights, but he did manage a few bright spots while struggling through the curriculum. His toughest subject was the Post ' s crossword puzzle: " It does build your vocabulary. " He could usually be found scratching his head with his pencil during most of his free periods if he was not contemplating in his horizontal blue of- fice. He always had questions to ask about his studies, his favorite being: " What ' s a seven letter word for . . . ? " On Sundays, his voice was distinguishable in the Chapel Choir. A little off-key perhaps, but he tried. All in all. Buzz has the makings of a fine officer and he should excel in whatever branch of the service he chooses. WILLIAM ALLEN HORN Flossrnoor. Illinois After displaying his wrestling abilities in high school, Willie came to USNA to see how the " Navy Ride " was really worked. Not only did he excel in wrestling, but in academics and the many other pursuits which tend to make a well rounded Mid, as well. " The toad " has been a frequent visitor of the Superintendent ' s List as well as Buzzy ' s. He is always present with the right comment at the right time and is always ready to tutor any who may need such. It is hard to figure where in his five foot seven inch frame he puts his eight feet of personality. His fu- ture plans include a short tour at Nuclear Power School, a short tour at Sub School and then a short twenty with the Navy. With " the toad " it should be no trouble at all, and many men will be better off having known him. JAMES ARTHUR HOUGH Miami, Florida Before coming to the Academy, Jim, better known as " Huffer, " spent a year at Auburn as an NROTC mid- shipman. Wanting to see what the real Navy was like, he came to the Academy. When he came here whole new horizons opened to him. He never rowed before, but now his heart is in the crew team. He has also been a key man in radio station WRNV. If you ever had a problem you could always count on Jim ' s help. His sense of humor and high spirit will win him friends wherever he goes. Upon graduation the Navy will have one of the most ded- icated destroyermen it has ever known. THOMAS MacARTHUR LEWIS Seattle, Washington Tom came to the Academy after spending a year at the University of Washington. An outstanding football player in high school, he decided to concentrate on the javelin while at the Academy, winning his " N " youngster year. A member of the Naval Reserve before entering, he adjusted readily to Academy life. A hard worker, and a hard player, Tom did not limit himself to athletics, but 574 ■IT THOMAS MacARTHUR LEWIS JOHN HERBERT MASON RONALD LENNIG MAXWELL (i tat did well enough in his subjects to enable him to branch out into a number of elective courses, while concentrating in the field of Oceanography. While at the Academy, Tom was known for his energy and enthusiasm, as well as a ready sense of humor. Well liked by those who have ever come in contact with him, Tom will be both an asset and a credit to the Navy during his career. JOHN HERBERT MASON Monroeville, Pennsylvania Jack came to the Naval Academy straight from high school in Monroeville. Pennsylvania, but he had no trouble adjusting to the rigors of the Academy " rat race. " He immediately set to work and became a star student plus continuously appearing on the Superintendent ' s List. His Math major came to him without much difficulty and there was always a guiding hand available to a puzzled classmate. Jack spent a great deal of his time performing for Coach Higgins and the Navy swimming team as a backstroker. He also found time to make spot appearances at Catholic Choir rehearsals and sing in the Choir on Sunday mornings. Necessarily, the rest of his time Jack had to get some sleep. Sometimes it was after taps, but it could have been during free periods, during study hour, or during classes; no matter when or where, Rip Van Winkle always got his sleep. Then, on those big occasions, he could be found with that special girl on his arm. With Jack ' s natural ability to get along with others and his conscientious efforts in all directions, his future in the Navy will be bright and promising, no matter which branch of the Navy he selects. RONALD LENNIG MAXWELL New Castle, Pennsylvania Ron joined the ranks of ' 66 after graduating from high school at New Castle, Pa., and attending NAPS for a year. Plebe year was the beginning of a diversification of interests. Ron developed as a varsity athlete by playing squash for Navy. He has been an asset to his company in that his grades were always good and he was more than willing to help a classmate in need. His four years here did much in sharpening his powers of learning, as he pursued a Mathematics major from oungster year. RICHARD LOFTON MICHAUX Touring Europe during second class summer. Ron broad- ened his knowledge of the peoples of the world. Ron ' s most noticed trait is his drive — making him a sure success what- ever his career may be. RICHARD LOFTON MICHAUX Myrtle Beach, South Carolina Dick came to the Naval Academy from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, well qualified to do a good job. His ex- perience, ability, and interest in athletics, especially foot- ball, made him an important part of the company ' s ef- forts in sports. He did much for his classmates through such jobs as Ring and Crest Committee Representative but, primarily, through academic help which he was well qualified to give. The key to his success in academics wasn ' t just ability. Dick was one of the hardest workers around, and it paid off. It resulted in Superintendent ' s List, stars, a Nuclear Science major, and a background that will result in his success, regardless of where in the Navy he may decide to go. 575 WILLIAM TURNLEY MORRIS III FRANKLIN LYMAN NOLTA " Georgia Tech may win the game but we ' ll settle for the girls. " WILLIAM TURNLEY MORRIS III Mobile, Alabama Bill entered the Naval Academy after graduating from University Military School in Mobile, Alabama. A true Alabama man, his gentlemanly southern nature is readily apparent. From reveille to taps, he could be counted on for a good natured conversation or an argument. Bill ' s interest in athletics was over at Hubbard Hall where he went almost every afternoon rowing on the varsity light- weight crew. Bill was a good student and kept a good academic record. He took several overloads in Russian, his major field of interest, in addition to being a member of the Russian Club. Bill is a capable man of hard, quiet determination and he will be a credit to the Naval Service. FRANKLIN LYMAN NOLTA Oak Harbor, Washington Being a Navy Junior. Frank has had many places he ' s called home, but the one he ' ll probably be remembered for is Whidbey Island, Washington. It was from here that he launched many an escapade. Rejecting a scholarship to Washington, he decided to accept the life of a plebe. Unlike a lot. Frank wasn ' t too flustered with activities plebe year. Youngster year he set out to find excitement, and found exactly that from Norfolk to Honolulu. An aspirant for Wings of Gold, he spent much of his time protecting his eyes by non-stop sleeping or looking at the fairer sex. When not asleep, ' on liberty or giving a certain Woo Poo officer fits, he could be found on the athletic field playing football, soccer, or tennis. In these he excelled and was an inspiration to his teammates. Among Frank ' s extracurricular activities were his jobs ' i OLIVER KENNETH POWER as Lucky Bag Rep and Reception Committee Rep. Though he engaged in many a pitched battle with the Academic Departments his superiority was displayed by his Super- intendent ' s List standing. His humorous and timely com- ments made the similar battles of others more bearable. Whether he gets his Wings or not, whatever branch he goes into will get one of the best men in the Navy. OLIVER KE-NNETH PO ' ER Kosciusko, Mississippi Ken came to us via Mississippi State where he spent the year following graduation from high school at Kos- ciusko. After the rigors of plebe year, he settled down in a pattern of academic overloads toward his Aeronautical Engineering major. He could always be seen at his desk, industriously studying toward that end. Ken was always a hard worker and will do well, whatever his career choice. He hopes to apply his academic major in the field of Navy Air. Wherever he goes, Ken will work hard and succeed at his endeavors. His sense of humor and wit will carry him far.

Carl has continued to excel in the History Department. He has become an authority on foreign relations and history. In the world of sports Carl was an active runner on the Brigade Cham- pionship Cross Country Teams and was a standout goalie on the fieldball team. Carl was always the person to see when you were in need of a true friend, always helping you out when you needed it most. After graduation, the smiling Irishman from South Boston plans to head for Pensacola and Navy Air. GRANVILLE SHERMAN HI Memphis, Tennessee Before joining our ranks as a midshipman, Mike lived in Memphis, Tennessee. There he attended White Station High School where he lettered in cross country and track. At Navy, he continued his athletic interests and became a member of the varsity swimming team. He was also an active member of the Officer ' s Christian Union and the Foreign Relations Club. Mike was never one to let the academic departments get ahead of him, his studies always came first even if it meant losing a little sleep. " Work first, play later " was his creed and he did well by it with his sights set on Nuclear Power School. His friendhness. his determination to get the job done, and his dedication to the service will make him an out- standing officer. 578 ;--• y ' .«!VflPMaM»»avw;?».

His second joy was singing in the Glee Club and in the Protestant Chapel Choir. With study. Bob managed to keep his aca- demic standing very high. His major field of interest was oceanography and meteorology, and he spent a great deal of time reading matter related to those subjects. Bob is an even tempered, industrious man who applies him- self well to any task, and he should go far in the Navy. CHARLES D. TEBRICH Springfield, Vermont Entering the Academy from Ann Arbor, Michigan, upon graduation from high school. Chuck easily adapted himself to the military routine. His participation in plebe and varsity baseball and 150 pound football demonstrated his athletic ability, and his knowledge and enthusiasm for sports was unsurpassed. He was always available for a good bull session and was never one to let the books get in the way of a good time. This occasionally led to an anxious moment during exam week, but Chuck always managed to rise to the occasion. In addi- tion to sports, his interests included bridge, soft music, and the opposite sex, the latter two preferably together. Among Chuck ' s memories of Navy will certainly be the 1963 Army-Navy baseball game in which he replaced Roger Staubach, not a small accomplishment for a mortal. Chuck ' s easy-going personality, topped with his ability to get a job done, even under the most adverse circumstances, make him a welcome addition to the fleet. ROBERT VINCENT SMART CHARLES D.

Using his grid talents to the ut- most he frequented the training tables and managed to escape many of the less likable traits of plebe year. Never one to let an incident go to waste. Koy continued to keep his classmates laughing right through to graduation, •hile at the same time managed to improve his class standing with each successive semester. An avid music lover, he seemed to jump at the word ' folk ' adding the banjo and guitar to his fast increasing repertoire of funny stories. Opposing intramural track and football teams found him not so humorous, however, as Koy led many of his Company teams to victory. Never one for easterr girls, he managed to find many a southwestern cutie in the immediate area. Looking for the girls may have injured old " Tex ' s ' eyesight but Koy is bound to be a tremendous addition to the Navy Supply Corps after graduation, as his ability to do an excellent job while keeping that warm smile is unsurpassed by any — even an Alaskan. H. GORDON AKST West Chester, Pennsylvania Gordy came to the Naval Academy directly from Freeport High School in New York. Patient and easy- going, he quickly learned what the Academic Departments wanted and has earned stars every semester. Familiar with small boating on Long Island, Gordy took to yawl sailing here, and as a result sailing and sailboats have been his major interest since. ' Upon graduation he hopes to join the fleet as a line officer. ROY MORROW BELL Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Coming from Penn Hills High School in the " Steel City " of Pittsburgh, Roy had no trouble at all adapting himself to Academy life. His pleasing personality, quick wit, and ability to get along with people fared him well in the battles of plebe year, and continued to do so during his remaining vears at USNA. After ending a brilliant basketball career in high school by making several all-star squads, Roy became a mainstay in the Navy basketball program, earning his first letter during his youngster year. He also gained fame as a real smasher on the Company volleyball teams and as a bone crusher on the plebe lacrosse suicide squad. Although his grades were not the most outstanding, Roy always survived the academic wars and fought the demons of the Skinny De- partment with the best of them. As a confirmed bachelor, Roy never dated any one girl steadily throughout his tenure as a midshipman, but most of his friends feel that some day he will be snared. Roy ' s wonderful per- sonality and hard working attitude will surely make him one of LTncle Sam ' s finest Naval officers.

He could be seen any fall afternoon on the gridiron with the 150 pound team. Studies were not exceptionally hard for Mike. Despite this fact, Mike and the Academic Department had their differences, but he always managed to dominate the situation. This gay young blade was never at a loss for female companion- ship. A party boy at heart, Mike will always carry with him fond memories of welcome leave. The German De- partment holds special interest for Mike and it is in this field which he hopes to continue. CLARK MICHAEL DECH Glendora, California Mike came to the Academy after attending Mount San Antonio College in Walnut, California for one year. He graduated from Charter Oak High School in Covina, California. He had the distinction of graduating " lucky " number 13 in his high school class. Since the Engineering Department showed him no mercy, he needed this luck. Mike picked Naval Management as his major and over- loaded in Psychology. A compact athlete, Mike enjoyed the sports program at the Academy. His specialty was track, and he ran on the plebe mile relay team. Wlien it came to Company intramural sports, although he wasn ' t exactly a giant (5 ' 7 " and 140 pounds) he played heavyweight football. Mike, when he wasn ' t studying or on the athletic field, could be found writing letters. Even though his music ability was limited, his interest wasn ' t. He enjoyed listening to all fojrns of music. After gradu- ation, Mike hopes to enter Supply School. With his " easy going " personality, sense of humor and ability to get the job done, he " will become a fine Naval officer. JAMES JOSEPH GALVIN SomenHle, Massachusetts J.

J. is noted for his quick wit and shrewdness, which have failed him in only two cases, for each of which he wears the symbolic " black N. " Furthermore, J. J. is a great sports advocate, having much interest in the history of sports as well as participation. He has con- tinuously utilized his aggressive skills on the playing fields toward the success of the Company soccer, field- ball, and Softball teams. J.

Jim ' s light- hearted disposition will be one of his greatest assets in winning friends and success as he is pursuing his career in the Navy Line. WEBB REILLY GILMORE Kansas City, Missouri Despite four long years of rigorous and monastic life within the gray walls of Bancroft Hall, Webb managed to maintain a personality that was his and his alone. Webb, or Gilly, as he was called by his many friends, was led to Annapolis by the prospect of an interesting and demanding life. Coming straight from Southwest High School in Kansas City, Missouri, he soon let it be known that this was just the type of challenge that he relished. An excellent student, and one who made the Superintendent ' s List with regularity, Webb took his studies in easy stride and was always willing to help out a classmate in academic distress. A company sports enthusiast, he participated in lightweight football and squash, and was a member of a brigade championship cross country team. The week ' s end often found Webb escaping from the confines of Bancroft Hall and bright- ening the lives of the sweet young locals. Upon gradua- tion, he plans to pursue a .career in nuclear submarines. 584 SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY- SIXTH COMPANY WEBB REILLY GILMORE ANDREW LOGAN HOGG, JR. ANDREW LOGAN HOGG, JR. Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania When he came to the Academy fresh out of high school in his home town of Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, Andy was probably no more shocked by what he saw here than most new plebes. He adjusted to the change and challenge of Navy life better than most, however, and was consequently, during his tenure here, one of the more outstanding members of the Brigade. With aca- demics never presenting any serious problems, Andy was able to devote a large amount of his time to his chief extracurricular interest, the varsity swimming team, on which he piled up an enviable record over the years. Pursuing a major in the Weapons Department, he hopes to put what he learned to use in a career as an EDO. Whatever branch of the service he enters, we may be sure that Andy ' s strong motivation and personality will assure him of success.

In response to this challenge, he branded his every effort in the East with the same mark of distinction that had set apart his achievements in the West. Here he continued to excel in athletics, specializing in a tough brand of boxing that defied his opponents to so much as graze his well-guarded " glass nose " . But Mike gained his greatest fame throughout the Brigade as an artist and cartoonist without equal. He passed away many hours in colorful and enthusiastic descriptions of his family, the outdoors, the West ' s many wonders, and other subjects which held places of special significance. But even more than his words, it was Mike ' s actions — his straightforward, aggressive manner, and the perseverance, dedication and stamina, which were particularly evident when he earned the wings of an airborne-qualified parachutist — that left no doubt of an outstanding future. 585 0m SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY- SIXTH COMPANY RICHARD LOUIS HULSE KENNETH JOSEPH KIRBY ALBERT HENRY KONETZNI JR. ALBERT HENRY KONETZNI JR. Pleasantville, New York Coming from an outstanding scholastic and athletic background, Al had a headstart on his life as a mid- shipman. He was an outstanding plebe football player and a member of the Naval Academy all-star rugby team. Youngster year, Al transferred his football ability to the Battalion field where he helped lead the Sixth Battalion to the Brigade Championship. Al ' s leadership only began on the athletic field. Academically he was consistently on the Superintendent ' s List and wore stars. Al always had a word of encouragement and a minute to spare; whether your problems were academic or personal, you could always rely on him for help. One of Al ' s greatest facets was his ability to see the bright side of everything. Seldom without a smile, Al would never admit that some- thing " couldn ' t be done. " His spare time was spent on the athletic field where he was always willing to try or play anything. Al ' s leadership qualities followed him everywhere and brought him an abundance of friends who, along with his classmates and teammates, will agree that Al will be a welcome addition to the Naval Service. RICHARD LOUIS HULSE Balduin, New York Following graduation from Baldwin High, Rich headed for the college campus of Franklin and Marshall only to trade the easy going fraternity life for Navy Blue and Gold. He is a fine athlete on both varsity and intra- mural levels and a rough competitor in any game or party. Most of his time in the fall is taken up earning " N " stars in varsity soccer. Rich is well known for his carefree yet serious attitude towards every task he undertakes from studying to eating. Rich enjoyed second class summer, and in 1966 Navy Air may just very well find an easy going smiling student at Pensacola. With Rich ' s fine attitude we know that he will continue to find success in the future. KENNETH JOSEPH KIRBY Norfolk, Virginia Easy going, mild mannered, and hard working. Ken graduated from Norview High School, in Norfolk, Vir- ginia, where he was a standout athlete in baseball, basket- ball, and track. During his four years at the Academy, Ken managed to continue his excellent athletic record, beginning in his first year when he started as first base- man for the Plebe team, and a year later when he was easily the most versatile ball-player under Coach Joe Duff, playing every infield position. His outstanding ability and athletic prowess have made him a great asset to the Navy baseball squad. Ken has never lacked for friends of either sex. due to his friendly smile and win- ning personality. He maintains a cool head and a calm, reserved attitude during situations of stress and has exceptional qualities for leadership. Ken ' s future can bring nothing but success for him. JOHN FREDRICK KOPPLIN Manchester, Connecticut Contrary to the usual turn of events, neither the Executive nor the Academic Departments bothered 586 I JOHN FREDRICK KOPPLIN JOHN DANIEL KUECHLE " Kops. " Entering the Academy with nearly a genius IQ, John soon found many things to fill his mind. At the top of the list is reading his hometown newspaper, to which John devotes at least one hour each day. John ' s intimate knowledge of his high school annual soon led to his opening of a June Week Drag Service, with selected " beauties " from Manchester High School as the lucky recipients of invitations to June Week. One of Heinz Lentz ' star pupils, Kops managed to major in Heinz extracurricular survival courses in the Natatoriuni for the majority of his career at the Academy. During young- ster year he tried an astronomy project — much to the dismay of his roommates — which soon turned his room into a small observatory complete with telescope. John ' s varied interests and intelligence will assure him of a fine Naval career. JOHN DANIEL KUECHLE Miluaukee, Wisconsin The Fox. who hails from the city of beer, but hates it, is one of those rare mids who apparently never lacks money. He is even more rare in that he very often spends his cash on food and drink for his drag. Other than being an amazing and magnanimous soul, John has distinguished himself both academically and athletically. Though John proves his high intelligence by wearing stars, he does not let the work load curtail his extensive study of combatant aircraft and ships. On the athletic side of his life. John braved the stench of the wrestling loft to be a member of a Brigade Cham- pionship wrestling team and endured the Maryland freeze- to help lightweight football teams to many victories. Whatever branch of service John picks, he is bound to be an excellent Naval Officer. DONALD GEORGE LATTA. JR. East Canton. Ohio Don, coming to LSNA from a two year stretch at Case Institute of Technology and an avowed Sigma Chi man, had a head start on many of his classmates both in personality and academics. Tliis was not only a boon to him, but also to a few of his classmates who happened to be seeking mature advice, or a good collegiate size, tall tale. Having played the clarinet and saxophone for WILLIAM NICHOLAS LEONARD, JR. ten years before arriving at Navy, Don proved to be one o f the finest midshipmen in the various musical veins of the school. Playing lead alto for the NA-10 and Con- cert Band, plus adding his basso profundo to the Chapel Choir took much of his free time, but he still managed to become an integral part of many intramural sports, while the Masqueraders and the Musical Clubs ' Show also were able to make excellent use of his varied talents. Academics were never much trouble for Don and if ever there was a need for an " A " on a test, he always seemed to come up with the right answers (he is known to have invented the " bag-sprint " ' method of study). A bachelor by nature, no single lass has tied him up as yet although many have had the opportunity of his escorting. Perhaps someday he ' ll settle down, but then again the combina- tion of a nuclear submariner and a jazz musician doesn ' t tend to add up to a henpecked husband. 587 SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY- SIXTH COMPANY CURTIS WAYNE OLSEN WILLIAM PETER POWELL WILLIAM NICHOLAS LEONARD, JR. Norfolk, Virs inm Bill came to the Academy from his most recent home, Norfolk, after graduating from Granby High School where he was a member of the National Honor Society as well as captain of the football team. Launched into the trials of Plebe Year, Bill emerged victorious. Aside from his participation in the Catholic Chapel Choir, most of Bill ' s activities at USNA have been devoted to studies. His chief endeavor was to obtain a major in Political Science from the E,H G Department. Dur- ing his off time out of the pad, Bill discovered that there were a few hours of daylight between last period class and evening meal and he devoted these to the intra- mural sports program. In addition to other achieve- ments, he played center his second and third class years on the brigade champion battalion football team. A Navy junior. Bill is uncertain whether he will follow his father ' s steps or continue after leaving the Academy to become a graduate of Quantico. CURTIS WAYNE OLSEN Tampa, Florida Fresh from the sunny climes of Tampa, Florida, Wayne came to USNA from Chamberlain H.S. with a smile and a disposition to match. Oley, as he is known to his classmates, has pursued the goal of becoming a success- ful, dedicated Naval officer. He was an outstanding stu- dent and his hard work kept him on the Superintendent ' s List for four years. While pursuing a major in mathe- matics, he still found time to tutor any classmates in need. His athletic endeavors, mostly on the company level, earned him success in squash, soccer, lightweight football and cross country, with the numerals of a Brigade champion in the last. Despite his academic workload, Wayne still found time for an active social life. Wayne has an avid interest in the Navy, always keeping up to date on professional knowledge. After graduation Wayne plans a career in nuclear submarines. " No! No! No! You mustn ' t go Nucy Poo! " WILLIAM PETER POWELL Chicago, Illinois Just a few weeks after graduating from Loyola Acad- emy in Chicago. Bill arrived at USNA sharply dressed in a browTi ivy league suit and with long wavy hair looking forward to four prosperous years at the Academy and a career in the Naval Service. While at the Academy Bill has always been a sports enthusiast and has done an outstanding job for the company soccer, lightweight football and softball teams. As for academics, Bill has had no trouble and has worn stars for his ability and efforts. However, Bill was always one to have a good time and could seldom be found in his room on the week- ends. He has a mild manner and a keen sense of humor that will win him friends and success wherever he goes. At the Academy Bill became very interested in aeronautical engineering and intends to pursue a career in Naval Aviation. SEMIEL ALBERT ROMMEL JR. West Gardiner, Maine One of the elite group of Midshipmen who call Maine their home, Butch, from West Gardiner via Higgins Classical Institute, arrived at the Academy ready to undergo the transition to Naval life. " Foxie, " an Army brat, has made his mark in many fields. Academically, he barely missed the Superintendent ' s List, but rigorously applied himself in pursuit of a major in Electrical En- gineering. In the sports field Butch is admired for his physical prowess, and was a stalwart member of the battalion rugby and wrestling teams. The little time which he had left he donated to the BAC and Scuba Club. Butch wasn ' t one to let weekends go to waste, es- pecially when there was a pretty girl around to drag. Upon graduation Butch plans a career in the surface fleet. DANNY EARL SCHUDER Fori Benning, Georgia Danny has never forgotten his birthplace. Australia, his English ancestry, or his Army background. True to the English in him, Danny was an outstanding member of the first rugby team at the Academy. Though hours of " concentrated study " left his eyesight bleary, Danny managed to be a top man on the varsity rifle team. Academics very rarely bothered him. Danny spent many study hours reading the latest science fiction book or popular novel. His friendly smile and warm greetings made Danny one of the most popular and widely known men in the Brigade. His interest and aptitude will lead him to a distinguished Naval career. SENTIEL ALBERT ROMMEL JR. DANNY EARL SCHUDER 589 SIXTH BATTALION THIRTY-SIXTH COMPANY JOHN WILLIAM SNYDER, JR.

Jack came from the wilds of North Dakota where he attended Williston High School. After a never-to-be-forgotten plehe summer. Jack began four years of study, music and sports. Aside from a few bouts with the Engineering Department, academics never posed a problem. An ex- cellent musician in all fields. Jack could be found playing bugle for the Drum and Bugle Corps or arranging music for its football half time shows. In the NA-10 it was trumpet, and he played cornet in the Concert Band which he also directed. He sang in both the Glee Club and the Chapel Choir, and, as if this weren ' t enough, he added the five string banjo to his instrumentation during young- ster year. A more avid participant in intramural sports was hard to find. Volleyball, basketball, football, squash, cross country and soccer teams all had the benefit of his driving spirit and hard play. Whatever his ultimate choice, John ' s talent, intelligence and vivid sense of humor will carry him far. DOUGLAS EDWIN THOMPSON Bay City, Michigan Doug came to the Academy from Bay City, Michigan, as a scared, lonely high school graduate like a great many of us. After sweating and running through plebe sum- mer, Doug jumjied right into the rigors of plebe year with new and more taxing academics plus such extra- curricular activities as Antiphonal Choir, WRNV and the Amateur Radio Club— of which he has played a significant role in keeping in " running shape " . When youngster year came along, Doug refused to expand his extracurricular activities so that he might pursue those long assignments in youngster history and others. How- ever, a rigorous second class summer and a good leave prompted Doug to add NA-10 to his list of extra " goodies. " AH of these plus being chief engineer of WRNV during second class year and a key man up at W3AD0 kept Doug a very busy mid. After gradua- tion, Doug plans to hang up the extracurricular activities for a while and, if his eyes hold out, take up flying as his main effort for the Navy. After Doug gets his wings, ASW work will be his main interest: too bad for enemy submarines. 590 DONALD WEIL Corpus Christi, Texas Don came to the Naval Academy from the second larg- est state in the United States, and has always accom- plished what he has set out to do in a big way. He had a major part in putting together the 1966 LUCKY BAG. As managing editor, a continual pile of messenger en- velopes made their way into and out of the room daily. He has been on the Superintendent ' s list continually since plebe year and thrived on taking courses that did nothing but frustrate him all study hour. Don did meet a lot of people, though, by taking overloads, for every night it seemed that half of Bancroft Hall was in the room asking him how to do this problem and how to solve that one. His athletic inclinations lean toward the Severn River as part of the varsity sailing team and he is also an accomplished company lightweight football player. Don will join Admiral Rickover ' s boys upon graduation, and wherever the Navy sends him. it can count on a job " well done " . DONALD MICHAEL YOUNG Spokane, Washington One of Spokane. Washington ' s finest. Mike brought to the Academy a record of national honors in scholastics and the Order of Demolay and state recognition in music, track and cross-country. An immediate success, he easily owns the ' " Most Weekends Taken By a Plebe " award. Though his favorite moments were spent at " slope zero, " he found time outside his " horizontal office " hours to remain at the very top of his class while majoring in Math and Political Science. His afternoons and evenings were spent in varsity cross-country, the Drum and Bugle Corps, the Chapel Choir, or playing first trombone in the Academy dance band. In a class where quality is the ordinary, Mike ' s extraordinary excellence, reefed with a spirit that has added much to our four years at Annap- olis, has given the Naval Service the best — in an officer and shipmate.

" v ' ' 1966 cl3ss officers The officers of the Class of 1966 bridged the gap between the views of the Executive Department and those of the first class. They were not always success- ful but results were realized in many areas. Indoctrinating the Brigade on the Honor Concept was the most important function handled by the class officers. In addi- tion, various committees, such as the monument committee, the O ' Club commit- tee, and the morale committee, were instituted. Further, the class fund was es- tablished, a class directory published and the class constitution written. In all, a fine group of men did an outstanding job. Bob Spooner— President Bill Clayton— Vice-president Bob Johnson— Secretar Al Sears— Treasurer 600 m yp squadron The YP Squadron is an extra-curricular activity which exists for the purpose of providing voluntary additional training to midshipmen in the professional aspects of a sea-going Naval officer ' s life. The Squadron offers oppor- tunities for learning seamanship and shiphandling, pro- viding for the exercise of command and responsibility. Consisting of one boat for each battalion, the YP Squadron operates three afternoons a week in the fall and spring sports seasons. In addition, about three weekend cruises are taken each season to various ports of call in the gen- eral area. professional 601 i sailing squadron The goal of the Midshipman Sailing Squadron is to provide training under sail, racing and occasional recreation for its members. (,: ' _ ; Daily, during the fall and spring seasons, the squadron trains on the • ' ' ' ' • ' waters of the Chesapeake preparing for the summer ocean racing. This training is put to the test during the alternating Bermuda and Annapolis-Newport races in the summer as well as in intercollegiate events and yacht club races in home waters. Just for fun, the squadron makes use of their yachts for " drag sail- ,- ' " 9 ' snd overnight cruises to Chesapeake Bay ports.

" To this end the Naval Academy Student Branch was formed in 1965 with V. V. Utgoff as faculty advisor. Lectures, movies and literature were made available, not only to members, but also to any interested midshipman or faculty member. scuba club The two environments still remaining to be explored by man are space and the underwater areas of the world. The Scuba Club gives midshipmen the opportunity to begin ex- ploration of the murky depths of the sea. Many hours are spent in the Natatorium learning the skills necessary to be- come a qualified diver. The training and experience received in this activity can prove very rewarding to the novice. The club provides fun and relaxation to the midshipmen in ad- dition to many services to other activities and organizations. s a- 3:5 12? M 603 foreign relations club naif3C This year, the Foreign Relations Club boasted the largest membership of any extra-curricular activity. Under the leadership of president Joe Taussig, advised by Professor Paone and Mr. Hennemeyer of the State Department, the Club sponsored a series of weekly programs concerning the international problems of the day. Throughout the year the members participated in student conferences at other col- leges, universities and the Pan-American Union, later forming the nucleus for NAFAC. Highlights of these programs included banquets, and speeches by repre- sentatives from the embassies of India and Pakistan, as well as by Admirals Kauff- man and Wright, One point that was heavily stressed throughout the year was the relationship between foreign affairs and the military establishment. A 3ADO W3ADO, the Amateur Radio Club, represents the Brigade in the world of radio communications. The objectives of W3ADO are to provide facilities for the development of interest in radio and electronics and to offer communications services for Midship- men to relatives around the World. Due to the recent renovation of Bancroft Hall, including extensive reorganization and moderni- zation of the W3ADO spaces above the Rotunda, the club has been relatively inactive for the past few years. However, upon comple- tion of the installation of much new, modern equipment, W3ADO expects to regain a leading position in service in efficient, pro- fessional amateur communications. 604 language clubs french club In September the French Club began the year with a full program of activities, including YP drills, banquets, movies, trips, and tv o dances. The club was considerably aided by two officers in their first year with the Foreign Languages Department, Capitaine de Corvette Claude Deguinnes, FN and Ensign Dupont, USNR. One of the year ' s highlights was the in- auguration of a ceremony on Veteran ' s Day to honor the French who fought in the Ameri- can Revolution. The club was also fortunate to be able to see a production by the Comedie Francaise of L ' Avare during a field trip to New York. Italian club The Italian Club of the U.S. Naval Acad- emy, under the direction of president Phil Boz- zelli 1 c, is an organization of midshipmen who speak or who are learning to speak Italian. The combined efforts of this year ' s officers produced fine banquets at w hich the club was fortunate to host many eminent guests. These guest speakers included correspondents and naval officers who delivered interesting dis- courses upon the opportunity to display their linguistic abilities at after dinner speaking. Club meetings and field trips rounded out a fruitful year. 605 :• J russi3n club Spanish club The Russian Club has gone far beyond merely striving for fluency in the language. Largely through the efforts of Professor Tolstoy, we have been able to acquire modern Soviet movies which evoke very good at- tendance. Among those shown this year were Dimka and Yo anta. One of the aims of the club was to establish communication among the several clubs of local universities— Georgetown, George Washington, Trinity Col- lege and others. In addition to having their members over for banquets and sailing trips, we also attended their functions. Club members attended a lecture on the Soviet Union at Georgetown, and a Christmas party and joint trip to the Moscow Philharmonic at Constitution Hall. We try not only to further knowledge of the language but also to develop an interest in the customs and traditions of the Soviet Union as well. The Spanish Club is intended to be the means by which a highly motivated student of the Spanish language may further his studies and apply his ability to common-day situations by giving the midshipman club members the opportunity to have group discussions in meetings, to practice after-dinner speaking at banquets, to enlarge their cultural knowledge of Latin-American countries through trips to embassies and places of Spanish cultural interest, and to practice the application of Spanish with other area college clubs at movies shown here and at other college campuses. In the above mentioned ways the Club exposes the members to many various areas in which the midshipman is afforded the opportunity and the means to improve his mastery of the language. 606 Portuguese club The Portuguese Club is one of the most active of the language clubs in its extra curricu- lar functions. On several occasions, the oppor- tunity to augment the academic routine and spend an evening with young ladies was made possible at private parties. Guests at Club ban- quets have included Brazilian and Portuguese military officers and civilians, notable among whom was the distinguished Brazilian Ambas- sador to the United States. There have been op- portunities to acquire greater proficiency in an important foreign language, to listen to the views of people speaking of their country in their own tongue and to learn more about social and cultural differences. These important aspects provided by the Portuguese Club have contributed to the development of more valu- able and competent naval officers. german club The German Club achieved this year ' s goal of promoting oral German through banquets, field trips, and German movies. While the banquets provided an opportunity to converse with native Germans, trips to German naval vessels and the German Embassy in Washington, D.C. familiarized the student with the practical use of German and promoted concentrated study. Through the hard work of Ben Anderson, several highly successful social functions were held during which the members had the opportunity to enjoy the company of several German girls. I 607 r .i S % SERVICE- SUPPORT ' foj brigade activities committee The Brigade Activities Committee, under the leadership of Carl AAcCul- lough, put forth a successful effort in boosting the Brigade ' s spirit throughout the year. Although new steps were taken toward more voluntary trips in sup- port of Navy ' s athletic teams, perhaps the highlight of the year was the " un- dercover " entrance of Bill the Goat at the Army-Navy game. This and its many other functions made the BAC one of the hardest-working organizations in the Brigade. ring 3nd crest committee The symbol that will represent our class in the future is the product of the un- ceasing efforts of the Ring and Crest Committee. Plebe year was a time for design and discussion with the eagerly awaited crests arriving just before June Week. The orders and sizing for the rings themselves were taken during youngster year so that second class year became one more hurtle to mount before they were ours to wear. Delivery accomplished, last minute adjustments made, the moment arrived, finally; from the rest of us, as we passed beneath the ring, the Committee earned a " well done. " 608 ne A main club Charged with maintaining the young Catholic ' s awareness of his faith, the Newman Club, under the leadership of Guy Mendenhall, opened its doors to all interested midshipmen. Through a series of speakers, including Lawrence Cardinal Shean and Sen- ator Kennedy of Massachusetts, it presented a wide range of topics important to the contemporary Cath- olic layman. Both Father Sullivan and Father Sweeney were important figures in the daily life of the Brigade ' s Catholic members, as well as the members of the Newman Club itself. n3V3l 3C3demy christiain aissoci3tion Headed by Bruce Bikel, the NACA strove to continue its work in providing an arena for education and discussion of the importance and role of the young Christian in to- day ' s world. By sponsoring speakers who, through their own lives and experience, had demonstrated the relevancy of Christian principles in both the military and civilian spheres, the NACA succeeded in its aim. 609 cheerleaders t it ii s. ' t yf, I k " - I ' ' H=j I » " A . During the past year, the casual observer has seen several midshipmen dressed in a variety of uniforms, topped off with gold, blue or white sweaters. These midshipmen are members of the Brigade ' s Cheerleading Squad. The young men who participate In this activity must be brave, hardy fellows because during the year they come face to face with the savage enthusiasm of the Brigade. Many people associate cheerleaders with football but, at Navy, they are everywhere. Navy ' s cheerleaders are always present trying to find just another measure of spirit in the already charged up Brigade. 0€ Uiacujbji cannoneers The roar following a Navy touchdown is produced by the Naval Academy Cannoneers, a permanent part of ball games since 1959. Dressed in replicas of 1845 midshipman uniforms, they load and fire a rare 1863 Dahlgren Twelve Pound Boat Howitzer with precision and elan. Not limited to the football field alone, the Cannoneers have demonstrated their prowess in concert with the Balti- more Civic Symphony by providing cannon fire for a truly realistic version of the 1812 Overture. 610 3rt eind printing club 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 Brigade activity; four thousand posters blossomed about the yard for the Army game alone. Although the club normally relied on a nucleus of a half a dozen members, when the big games came up, as many as fifty people pitched in to help print posters. These posters made a great contribution to Brigade spirit and to the success of the team. go3t keepers Symbol of the fighting spirit of the 4100, Bill is entrusted each year to the care of two deserving firsties from the junior varsity. It is their job to keep him fxjinted determinedly in the direction of Navy ' s drives, his shaggy head bearing no good for the op- ponent. This year ' s keepers were Guy AAendenhal and Wayne Hardman. r«i ii s;-.

Thalman, Sports Publicity Director, has con- tinued to add great support to Naval Academy Athletics during the ' 65- ' 66 season. By the coverage of all home sporting events, the Committee has done more than its share to keep the Brigade and the world well informed of every Navy game, match, or meet. Whether on the field, in the press box, or via the public address system, the Committee is always on the job. automobile committee Each year, the Automobile Committee attempts to obtain the lowest possible prices for Midshipmen First Class. This year, the committee initiated a new program of information disemination to the first class and automobile dealers in this area. This new program fostered competition amon g the dealers, resulting in some of the lowest prices ever offered. The hard work put in by the members of the committee resulted in a better organization, the results of which will be fully realized by the class of 1967. 612 hop committee The successful hops that all AAids and their drags enjoy are the results of the efforts of the hard work- ing but often unmentioned members of the Brigade Hop Committee. This year, under the leadership of Frank Akers l c, the combined efforts of the commit- tee resulted in an enjoyable schedule of hops suited to various tastes. The committee did their usual good job and the Formals were as colorful and impressive as ever. A new phase was added to the list of hops in the form of Popular Music Concerts— Spiffy Hop combination. The large atendance at these performanc- es attested to their popularity. Outstanding on this year ' s list of successes was the Brigade Informal after the Army game. The Hop Committee ' s reputation for livening up the life of the Academy was well de- fended by this year ' s members. reception committee The purpose of the Reception Committee is to provide the visiting athletic teams at the Naval Academy with escorts who in turn assure that the teams are provided lodging, meals, athletic facili- ties and other needs that will make their stay here memorable. The hosts, normally the only contact these groups have with midshipmen, represent the Brigade in welcoming our visitors; it is their task to leave a favorable impression of the Brigade. ..i fl 613 - wrnv From the first strains of reveille to the quiet minutes of study hour, WRNV, the voice of the Brigade, furnishes the inhabitants of Bancroft with a wide range of music, weather, menus, and essential services such as Weekend Wheels. With Doug Thompson as its able organizer, the radio station expanded its services this year to include interviews with the Commandant and Superintendent in addition to its regular broadcasts from the science department, alias Radio Free Physics. Matching perfectly the musical needs and tastes of the Brigade, WRNV is indeed an essential extracurricular activity. JiU;: 614 popular music The committee this year sponsored five concerts of the Brigade with such entertainment as the Four Seasons, the Platters, the Lettermen, the Goodtime Singers, and Roger Miller. Two of these concerts, held in conjunction with Spiffy costume hops, proved to be very popular. The year was topped off by the June Week concert, a perennial success. t Mlil Composed of varsity letter winners at the Naval Academy, the " N " Club is a social or- ganization. Its purpose, to serve the Academy athlete and provide assistance to the Naval Academy Athletic Association, is carried out through a series of sponsored social activities for the enjoyment of the gold " N " wearers. Club members also assisted the Athletic As- sociation by performing various functions on and off the field. N club 615 A THEATRE masqueraders Providing a dramatic presentation for the entertainment of the Brigade is the main func- tion of the Masqueraders. This group, working with the help of theatrical advisors, selects many of its plays from the best of Broadway. All business and associated activities, such as pub- licity and stagework, are handled by those members who are not part of the acting cast. Consisting of more than its single production, the Masqueraders had bi-weekly meetings during the year, at which they reviewed the entire scope of drama, from short stories to poetry, from the classical to the avant-garde. The objective of these programs is to provide a broader appreciation of dramatic art within the Brigade. make-up gang The actors in the Masqueraders and the Musical Club Show receive the applause for their performances, but the Make-up Gang contributes heavily to their success. The primary responsibility of the Gang is the facial disguise of the actors in both groups. Through their talents the members have been able to make an eighteen year old Plebe look like an eighty year old crone and a twenty-two year old Firsty look like a sweet young girl. juice gang " Hard work and horseplay " characterized the Juice Gang in 1965- 66. Headed by Pete Walberg ' 66 and Lcdr. Inman, the Gang undertook traditional projects, displaying ingenuity and a flair for showmanship. The big Navy " N " was conspicuous at football games and rallies, often accompanied by other spectaculars depicting Navy ' s fighting spirit. For Army, efforts of the gang produced a huge Black Knight, cannon- balled down in four stages of living color. The football season ' s end brought no respite as the Gang began constructing the lights for the Masquerader production. Special effects for the Musical Club Show and the Navy Relief play, plus preparations for June Week topped off the year ' s accomplishments. 616 glee club MUSIC AT USNA I n This year the United States Naval Academy Glee Club made, and will continue to make, tours across the nation as well as concerts here at the Academy. One such trip, a five day tour of the Mid-west, included stops in Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Sioux City, Rock Island, and Colum- bus. The Academy again received national publicity when the club toured Atlanta and Ft. Lauder- dale over Spring leave. In the fall the Glee Club was featured on the nationally televised Bell Telephone Hour. Again on the twenty-sixth of November, it was honored to tape a television show for the Philadelphia area on WFIL-TV in Philadelphia. In addition to several excursions, the Glee Club participated in the Midshipmen ' s Musical Review held in Washington, D.C. in the spring. antiphoneil choir The Antiphonal Choir lends to Navel Academy Chapel services the unique effect of two choral groups singing in unison. This year, under the direction of president Phil Svalya l c and the supervision of Professor Donald C. Gilley, the choir put in many hours of hard work to produce the fine anthems and hymns for which the group is noted. Be- sides its work in the chapel on Sundays, the Antiphonal Choir is also one of the touring groups that represent the Academy across the nation. This year the choir received invita- tions for concerts from New York and Washington, D.C; their performances throughout the year upheld the reputation that places them in high esteem here at the Academy and across the country. 617 protestant chapel choir F Under the direction of Prof. Donald C. Gilley and with the able leadership of choir president Robert V. Smart this year ' s Protestant Chapel Choir continued to add to the beauty and meaning of the Academy ' s Chapel services. The choir, combined with the Hood College Choir, presented its annual performances of Handel ' s " Messiah " and as always, the Chapel was filled to overflowing for both performances. In addition, the choir enjoyed a weekend singing at St. Thomas ' Church in New York City and took part in the Service for the Navy at National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. catholic chapel choir The Catholic Choir complements the 0800 Mass every Sunday morning for the early risers of the Brigade. This year was particularly good with Dave Klinkhammer holding the reins as President. Trips included performances at St. Patrick ' s Cathedral in New York City and at the National Catholic Shrine in Washington. 618 IT n3-10 The NA-10 of 1965-1966 proved itself the best dance band ever to represent the Naval Academy. The quality of its members v as insured when only a third of the musicians who auditioned were selected for this year ' s band by leader Mike Young, director Bruce Valley, and section leaders Don Latta and Jack Snyder. The NA-lO ' s ability to produce excellent music, for both dancing and entertainment, was demonstrated by its performances throughout the year at concerts, Plebe Tea Dances, and hops both at home and away from the Academy. The Musical Clubs Show and a performance for the Members of Congress highlighted the year ' s activities. surf boys The Naval Academy witnessed the successful first year of performances by the Surf Boys, a group conceived and organized by the leaders of the NA-10. Appearing alone or with the NA-10 throughout the year, the Surf Boys generated music and a beat perfectly suited to the ever-changing contemporary dance styles. M 619 the spiffys The Naval Academy ' s rock and roll group, the Spiffys, presented the Brigade with another year of exciting new music characterized by all of the new dance crazes. They blended Liverpool with jazz and the Big Beat with blues, resulting in a fantastic sound heard by many frenzied Mids as they gyrated to the popular rock-n-roll beat. The group was led by Skip Esty, and included men from all parts of the country and all sorts of musical backgrounds. They played for everything from Costume Hops to Pop Music Concerts, Smokers to Musical Club Shows, and After- noon Informals to Tea-Fights. They managed to play at two local area colleges and even played for the Department of Defense and the CNO. 620 concert baind 1 f ♦ The Midshipman Concert Band gives midshipmen the chance to cultivate their talents and to continue their musical education by playing selections ranging from pop to classical. Under the capable direction of Jack Snyder, the band pro- vides music for basketball games, lightweight football games, pep rallies and special evening dinners. Four concerts are given yearly; before Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and during June Week. musiceil clubs show The Musical Clubs Show, under the direction of Al Swinger, presented the musical comedy " He ' s Our Guy " . As the name of this organization implies it is a result of the combined efforts of the various midshipman musical activities. This year ' s theme centered around the trials and tribulations of a beachboy turned Ensign. The escapades of our hero. Ensign Hermes A-Stern, ably played by Gif Munger, provided a story-line of light-hearted entertainment. This, combined with the music, dancing, and singing provided a show that was thoroughly en- joyable. 621 RECREATION photography club The Photography Club exists to furnish its members an opportunity to expand their skills while enjoying the facilities of a well equipped darkroom. The increased number of entries in the Trident Society photography con- test testifies to the club ' s success under the leadership of Frank Shyka, president. gun club Recognizing the growing interest within the Brigade in small arms, the Gun Club was formed to afford its members an occasion to improve their skill while broadening their ex- perience. By purchasing hand loading equip- ment, the club was able to lower the cost of enjoying small arms competition. Several shoots were held both at the range in Bancroft and at the range across the river. Art AAillard, Harry Maixner, Mike Sinisi and Billy Russell were the guiding spirits of the Gun Club. 622 H f fijfniili msr VH mB ? £i I HII k PUBLICATIONS the log cost of ,| shoots 1 Harry This year the LOG returned to its bi-weekly schedule and the acceptance by the Brigade was universal. Un- der the leadership of Kieth Wagner and Bruce Valley the staff performed as few staffs have in past years con- sistently turning out hopefully good issues of fiction, sports and humor. The literary content of the LOG also under- went a commendable improvement in both range and style. 623 M trident society Ah.i LLd .■ The Trident Society is designated the " arts and letters " society of the U.S. Naval Academy and was designed to provide a medium for expression, exhi- bition, and publication of the Brigade ' s cultural tal- ents. It controls four groups, Trident Magazine, Reef Points, the Christmas card committee, and the Trident Calendar, and holds various Brigade-wide contests throughout the year, in order to encourage participa- tion in artistic and literary pursuits. trident magazine Trident is the professional magazine of the Brigade of Midshipmen. As such, its purpose is to stimulate professional, literary, and artistic activity in the Brigade. While this is primarily a Midshipman ' s magazine the 1965-1966 staff attempted to initiate interest in the magazine outside of Bancroft Hall. Increased participation of the faculty and features aimed at parents and friends did much to boost interest in Trident. As a result, circulation increased by 33% and the Trident staff could print the best issues seen at the Academy for several years. 624 : reef points Perhaps the most common book seen around the Acad- emy is the " Plebe ' s Bible, " Reef Points. Many Mids never pay too much attention to this well established tradition of the Academy and do not realize the work involved in its production. Although Reef Points finds it roots deep in the traditions of the Navy, it requires constant revision to keep it up to date with today ' s dynamic Navy. The responsi- bility for this revision falls on the Reef Points Commitee, and this year ' s committee, headed by Steve Holl, produced an especially fine new edition. Sifting through the mounds of information that must be cut, lengthened, updated and edited is a large job and the efforts of the committee pro- duced results of which the Academy can be proud. trident ceilendair The Trident Calendar is the " official calendar " of the Brigade. This year ' s calendar sold 22,000 copie5-3,000 more than any previous year. The staff worked many hard hours this year with work extending into summer leave. The finished product speaks for itself. Christmas Ccird committee The production of a distinctive Christmas card is a task undertaken by the Christmas Card Committee. Except for the actual printing, every step of the process is carried out by the midshipmen. From design and contracting to advertising and sales, the creative and business talents of the midshipmen spell financial success while wishing everyone a quietly joyous Christmas. 625 : jr . jk the lucky baig Conceived in hope and produced through many hours of plain hard work, the 1966 LUCKY BAG measures the collective and individual existence of a class. From early in Youngster Year, the staff began interviev ing photographers and publishers, collecting and organizing material, and, finally, wrote a good deal of copy while we lost sleep (but h ad fun doing it). Producing the world ' s largest annual involves a great deal of detail and, of course, money. We leave the end result of our key-punching and penny-pinching to you, the true judge of our success or failure.

' ; " ' .r I fall sports I-.: the eiction season From the very first day of the Brigade ' s return, the spirit that will sweep Navy through the coming season is already manifest. You can hear it in the animated conversations throughout Bancroft on the merits of various football strat- egies, on the relative strength of various cross country com- bines and, above all, on the chances of success in the quest for Army ' s hide. Nothing can quite match the color of autumn leaves and Navy football teams when displayed against the vibrant background of a cheering crowd. Whether you stood in the stands at Memorial Stadium and shouted your lungs out or waited out the plays glued to a radio, the same fascination and enthusiasm was always there. In the mess hall each Sun- day evening, after the weekend ' s results had been read, the victors would be carried by on the shoulders of their sup- porters. There were quite a few, each of them attesting to the standard of excellence on the field as well as off it that has become a byword at Navy. On the following pages, we have tried to recreate for you some of the great moments of sea- sons past through the fine people and their actions that make Navy sports the dynamic picture that they are. i i Ci ' 632 ison 633 Cal Huey relaxes after jumping catch. Titans crash on line. neivy football I Navy ' s opening opponent of the 1965 football season took the form of a highly-touted Syracuse eleven. It proved to be a beautiful day as Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium was drenched in the 80 degree sun. Navy ' s big problem was little-Floyd Little the 195- pound Orange halfback, and the Big Blue contained him well by hold- ing him to 25 yards for the first half. The first quarter was six punt exchanges with neither team crossing the 50 yard line. The Orange- men drove to the Navy 24 before a field goal attempt fell wide right. Bruce Bickel then managed to pass the Big Blue to the Syracuse 47 before the drive stalled. The Orangemen took the punt on their own 37 to start the longest drive of the game. Quarterback Ted Holman found the left end clear to scamper the last six yards for the touchdown. A Navy drive stalled on the Syracuse 5 yard line as time ran out. Jimmy Angel returned a Syracuse punt 31 yards in the opening minutes of the second half to set .the Big Blue up on the Syracuse 32. A beautiful leaping snag by Calvin Huey capped the drive but the PAT failed and Navy trailed 7-6. A pass interception on the Navy 10 set up the final Syracuse touchdown in the early seconds of the fourth quarter. Holman again carried it over the left side to end the scoring: Syracuse 14— Navy 6. 634 ■■ ni m Whoa, Mr. Little! Both Navy navy vs. Syracuse Syracuse Navy 7 7 6 . . and Syracuse lied tough going. i • ' :A Km ■ ' i ' ' n ■•lt . i:.. ■, i HKBHtSi 6?5 3f Navy ' s defens A crowd of 52,000 Californians saw a tough Navy team forget all about pre-season predictions of airmindedness, and follow the sprint-out options of Youngster John Cartwright to tie favored Stan- ford 7-7 . The defensive unit received their due amount of praise. Led by linebacker Gary Gray, and subordinated by Ray Hill, Roger Lammes, Fred Moosally, and Duncan Ingraham, this " other " Navy eleven did a superb job of holding Stanford and halfback Ray Handley. Al Roodhouse picked up 32 yards to get Navy ' s initial drive underway. Halfback Terry Murray reached paydirt from one yard out, and Felix Bassi, recovering from the kicking jitters suffered against Syracuse, split the uprights for what amounted to the game- tying point. A Dave Lewis to Bob Blunt passing combination moved Stanford to the Navy one in the third quarter. Lewis plowed over from there and moments later Desylvia ' s PAT tied the game. Each team managed one more drive, but defensive football proved the plan of the day and the t ie remained unbroken; Navy 7— Stanford 7. 636 Fearsome, isn ' t it? Cartwright pas n3vy vs. Stanford Stanford Navy 7 7 ii 637 While blockers held the Sooners, Navy romped. neivy vs. okl3homei Norman, Oklahoma was the scene of the next Navy defensive uprising. This time led by Chris Hoch, the Navy defensive unit gave up only 83 yards total offense-six through the air and 11 on the ground. Making use of John Cartwright ' s option supplemented with Terry Marray ' s inside tackle thrusts, the Big Blue drove to the Okie ' s 12 after receiving the opening kickoff. Phil Bassi tried a 19 yard field goal from the hash mark, but the attempt was wide. The next time Navy got their hands on the ball it was paydirt time. A 33-yard Cartwright to Roodhouse pass combination put the Big Blue on the scoreboard. The Navy offense seemingly couldn ' t be stopped. Bruce Bickel relieved Cartwright at the helm and im- mediately passed Navy into scoring position again. The drive stalled on the Sooner 29 and Bassi ' s toe received another chance. This time it proved more accurate upping Navy ' s lead to 10-0. Efforts by Hoch, Ray Hill, and Fred Moosally stymied any ef- forts Gomer Jones ' Sooners could muster. On a half dozen occasions the Navy defensive line stormed through into the Okies ' backfield to spill the Sooners for big losses. The early margin proved enough: Navy IG-Oklahoma 0. 638 A long bomb into the end zone for a TD. r r ii 6 : Who ' s the III ' guy wid da ball?

The Big Blue offense unveiled its mightiest effort of the season to over- power an outclassed Indian team 42-14. Surprisingly enough it was William and Mary who drew first blood. From the Navy 23, Indian quarterback called Mike Weaver ' s number, and the 174- pound halfback found end Randy Glesenkamp wide open. Donnie McGuire ' s point after try was good and the Indians jumped off to a surprising 7-0 lead. A Navy attack stalled on the W M 3, but the next drive produced results. Terry Murray hit left tackle for the final two yards and the tying tally. On the kickoff Ray Hill undressed Mike Weaver on the Indians 23 and Dave Daily grabbed the ball. Murray got six more four plays later. Fumbleitus struck the Indians again— Chris Hoch coming up with the ball this time on the opponent ' s 21 yard line. On the first play Al Roodhouse followed a beautiful Tom Leiser block and scampered all the way for the score. The next W M attempt ended on the Navy 24. From the Indian 45 Cartwright brought back memories of Roger Stauback. Dropping back to pass, John fought to stay in the pocket but finding his receivers covered, he drifted to the left. His blocking followed and opened a clear field for him. As he was about to cross the line of scrimmage he picked out Steve Shrawder in the end zone and hit him beautifully. The half ended with Navy leading 28-7. Navy added two more TD ' s in the second half. Terry Marray got his third of the day from the three yard line with 4:15 left in the third quarter. With three minutes gone in the final period, Bickel hit Shrawder in the end zone for Steve ' s second touchdown of the day. W M did manage to get a final tally in the waning minutes of the game with a Mike Madden to Steve Slotnick pass. But it was too late then; the Navy offense had shown the Indians too much: Navy 42— William and Mary 14. 640 a - ' • i miefm : Terry Murray flashes across for Navy TD.

The Pitt game, held this year in D. C. Stadium, produced what will per- haps be remembered above all of the 1965 football season. In the third quarter, having recovered a Navy fumble on the Big Blue ' s 20 yard line, Pitt seemed ready to overcome the 6-0 Navy lead. Quarterback Kenny Lucas found Eric Crabtree open in the endzone, but pass interference ensued giving Pitt a first down on the Navy one. Four plays later the Big Blue had the lead and the ball on their own three yard line, and the Brigade was hoarse from screaming. This defensive display had to be Navy ' s finest hour during the 1965 season. Ray Hill was the cause of the first Navy touchdown. Wrapping himself around the ball and Pitt punter Andy AAcGraw ' s leg at the 26, Hill forced the pigskin back to the Pitt two where Navy took over. Al Roodhouse pounded over from there on the first play giving Navy a 6-0 halftime lead. In the middle of the final period Bruce Bickel directed a 96 yard scoring drive. Phil Norton caught two of Bickel ' s passes before Steve Shrawder made a beautiful leaping catch in the end zone: Navy 12-Pitt 0. 643 Bruce Bikel uncorks for a score. navy vs. georgia tech - Sporting a three game winning streak. Navy hit Atlanta and Georgia Tech who had an identical 3-1-1 record. The engineers had hardly impressed anyone in their first five games, but starting with Navy they began to roll, eventually de- ■ ' -■ feating Texas Tech in the Gator Bowl. Tech started the scoring midway in the first quarter when a Tommy Carmichael field goal attempt bounced the right way off the upright for three points. The Techsters failed to let up, and using five pass plays marched 80 yards to tack on ' ,y seven more points. Quarterback Kim King marched the Jackets 57 yards for their second TD early in the next period. Craig Baynham pulled in a 17 yard King pass to pull the Techsters 16 points into the lead. Following the kickoff, a Navy drive moved the ball to the Tech 29 before a Tech interception ended it. The Jackets managed another drive climaxed by a ten yard King to Baynham screen pass upping the score to 23-0 with 2:08 remaining in the half. Tech broke the game wide open in the early minutes of the second half. Suc- cessive punt returns, an 86 yarder by Bill Eastman and an 80 yarder by Sammy Burke, finished Tech ' s scoring for the afternoon at 37 points. Bruce Bickel then brought Navy fans alive by engineering a 78 yard drive capped by a 13 yard [ ' : pass to Steve Shrewder. The next time up, Bruce again moved the team, this time ; ' for 88 yards. Bob Taylor, on a beautiful pattern, hauled in Bick ' s 29 yarder for liia the last Navy TD: Georgia Tech 37— Navy 16. 644 Al Roodhouse around the end.

Navy stood a great chance of vindicating itself and it did just that-for one half at least. Beautiful defensive ball during that half surprised the crov d of 59,206 which had packed itself into Notre Dame Stadium. Marred only by a last ditch play as time ran out, the Big Blue ' s game effort held the Irish to a 7-3 lead at halftime. Eight punt exchanges resulted in no score at the end of the first period. After four additional punts in the second quarter, the Navy team finally mounted a drive. Starting from his ov n 41, John Cart- wright managed to move the Big Blue to the Notre Dame 12 be- fore the attack stalled. Chris Hoch, attempting his first field goal ever, split the uprights and with 2:58 remaining Navy led 3-0. But- 14 seconds before time ran out, the tables turned. Irishman Nick Eddy took a Bill Zloch screen pass to the right, picked up inter- ference and rambled 45 yards for the TD as time ran out. Notre Dame took a 7-3 lead to the dressing room. The second half opened with Notre Dame ' s big three-Larry Conjar, Nick Eddy, and Bill Wolski-crashing in to the Navy line. After the kickoff. Bill ZIock engineered a 64 yard drive taking the ball over himself from the one. A Navy fumble gave the Irish the ball on the Navy 25, and eight plays later Conjar rolled one yard for the TD. Nick Rassas brought back memories of the Tech game by takmg a Dave Church punt 64 yards for the final Notre Dame tally: Notre Dame 29-Navy 3. 646 We had our say as we Notre Dame 7 22 Navy 3 647 Stand by, pal Navy Maryland 12 7 7 648 itVi SLi. ii A bit of friendly rivalry n3vy vs. m3ryl3nd 12 Arch-rival Maryland came to town next, and it was Navy ' s time to get on the winning trail once again. Remembering the humiliating defeat of last year, the Big Blue proved itself almost every time it had the ball. Two drives carried the ball to the Terrapin two and sixteen respec- tively but Al Roodhouse was thrown for a two yard loss on fourth down at the two, and Phil Bassi ' s field goal attempt went wide from the 16. An early second quarter drive carried to the Maryland one this time, but again Navy ran out of downs. Ernie Torain was thrown five yards behind the goal, and Navy did manage to come up with two points. Bob Taylor pulled in a 17-yard TD pass two minutes later to push Navy ahead by 9-0. Another Navy drive stalled on the Maryland 17, but two plays later Torain fumbled on the Terrapin 11, and with three seconds remain- ing, Bassi again split the uprights to give Navy a 12-0 halftime lead. An 80-yard Navy touchdown drive opened the second half. Danny Wong gained 42 of the 80 yards, but it was an 8 yard Cartwright to Taylor pass that climaxed the drive. After a pass interception at the Maryland 49, Terrapin quarterback Phil Retry found wingback Bobby Collins open and hit him for a 51-yard TD pass to end the scoring: Navy 19-Maryland 7. . m 649 navy vs. penn st3te Rip Engle ' s Nittany Lions had played average ball for the major part of the season, but up against a rejuvenated Navy team they buckled down. The game v as marked by astute defensive work by Penn State, who four times threw the Navy team back after it had penetrated their 30-yard line. After intercepting a pass in their own end-zone. Navy sent Al Roodhouse up the middle for ten yards, but a driving tackle caused a fumble, and Penn State was once again in business on the Navy 30. Three plays later halfback Don Kunit took a handoff around right end for 22 yards and the score. As the first half ended, Bruce Bickel had carried Navy to the Lions ' 1 9 before running out of steam. The second half started as the first half had ended with the Big Blue pounding on the door. This time John Cartwright moved the ball to the State 14 before an attempted field goal fell wide. From here quarterback Jack White directed a nine-play Penn State TD drive which was climaxed with wingback Mike Trevin ' s 5-yard burst. In the fourth period. Navy began four drives. The first ended with a fumble on the State two-yard line. The next two were stymied by interceptions at State ' s 37 and 45-yard lines, respectively. The final drive began on the Navy 18. Cartwright directed this one and carried home the mail from three yards out with 30 seconds remaining in the g ame: Penn State 14— Navy 6. 650 Here, you Take it fo -Tl-7 ' -= ?Ok - . l mw ' Haven ' t we met before?

The game opened as if it were to be in the fine old Navy-Army high-scoring game tradition, but it quickly tapered to conservative football. The game resulted in the sixth tie in the 66-game series; neither team could claim a winning season. Army finished 4-5-1 while Navy looked a little better at 4-4-2. The Big Blue forced Army to punt after Chris Hoch ' s kickoff, but two plays later Army end Sam Champi fell on a John Cartwright fumble at the Navy 31. Three plays later Sonny Stowers took a pitchout around right end for 25 yards and a 6-0 Army lead. Andy Dull made it 7-0 with his perfect PAT. Another Army drive began two minutes later from the Kaydet 31. Hoch man- handled the Army backs at the Navy 1 4, bringing about a fourth and seven situa- tion. Dull ' s field goal attempt went wide left and Navy took over. Neither team could move the ball during the next four series of downs. The Big Blue finally got rolling about four minutes deep in the second quarter. From his own 29, Cartwright directed a drive to the Army 31. Here, with first down, a Cartwright pass to Rob Taylor was intercepted by Army defender Joel Piggot in his own end zone to stymie the Navy effort. Four plays later Duncan Ingraham picked up an Army punt on the first bounce at his own 38 and returned it beautifully through a tunnel of Navy blockers which had set up on the left side line. Ingraham ' s return gave Navy the ball on the Army 27. From there the Big Blue rolled to the Army seven before a stout Kaydet line threw them back to the 16. Phil Bassi was to try for three from there, but a bad pass from center gave Army the ball on their own 26. Bob Havasy came up with an interception on the very next play to put Navy back in business on the Army 36. A clutch 15-yard Cartwright to Terry Murray pass on third and ten from the 36 kept the Navy drive going. At the 21 Cartwright found Phil Norton open at the 8 and Navy had a first and goal. On the third down from the Army 8 Cartwright rolled right and sent Murray across to the left side. A perfect pass found Murray at the two; Terry sidestepped one Army defender to cross the goal line standing up for six points. Bassi tied the score at 7-1 moments afterward. The offensive game ended as the gun sounded the end of the first half. The second half was a pure defensive game. The longest either team held onto the ball was the four and one-half minute drive which netted Navy 25 yards at the beginning of the third period. Navy got the ball two minutes later at the Army 41 after Ron Buschbom partially deflected an Army punt. A big loss shoved Navy back to the midfield stripe, but a roughing the kicker penalty moved the ball back to the Army 33. With fourth and three from there a Navy pass fell incomplete. This had marked the farthest penetration by either team in the second half. The game still stood, after the " battle of the punters " at Navy 7, Army 7. 653 t i ' im everybody cheers for H 654 srs for N3vy, A in, lose or tie 1 : oTRLj o n °M pi Hf»i PY U DlUt 655 soccer For the third straight season, Coach Glenn Warner led a fighting Navy soccer team to an undefeated season, being tied only by Army. Once again, as in past years, Myron Hura was a standout, both offensively and defensively, scoring 13 goals in the process. It was Jim Burger, how- ever, who led the team in tallies with 14. In NCAA play both Jim Lewis and Al Vasiliauskas scored three goals to supplement their regular season totals. On three separate occasions the team trailed at the half and yet, true to Navy tradition, came fighting back in the stretch to win or tie against North Carolina, Army and Brown. In brilliant testimony to the continuing excellence of Navy soccer, ten booters graduated never having been defeated in regular season play; their record was 38-0-1. The unde- feated ones were: Myron Hura, Dick Hulse, Captain Will Trafton, Scott Hood, Mike Sweeney, Will Taylor, Bob Johnson, and Buck Thompson. 656 657 cross country If the Yankees can catch it, then Navy ' s cross country team is no exception. After what started out to be a great season, our harriers dropped three nneets in the last weeks of the campaign, including a squeaker to Penn State, to post a 5-5 record. The fall was marked principally by illness and injury, redeemed by fine showings by some newer team members. Greg Williams lowered his course record to 25:03 against Army, a drop of twelve seconds, while youngster Jim Dare consistently placed among the first five Navy men across the line.

In fact, it was quite a bit fiercer this year as the mighty mites swept the season to win the Eastern Intercollegiate title for the fourteenth time since 1945. With Bob Lewis quarterbacking while throwing ten touch- down passes and Dennis AAanskar contributing 45 points as both an offensive end and kicking specialist, plus the outstanding play of such regulars as Bob Purdy, Pat McKenna, Dick Meis, Al Sears and George Hiduk, coach Jack Cloud ' s team earned its place among the best Navy lightweight combines ever. The high point of the season was the thrilling seventy yard Lewis to Daughfry pass that helped to fell Army. 150 lb, football eastern intercollegiate champions 660 150 lb. football scores Penn 6 Cornell Army 15 Columbia Rutgers Princeton M 661 sailing team Piloting their fleet-winged craft through the choppy waters of the Severn and other noted bodies of water on the eastern sea- board, coach John Ward ' s sailors capped an excellent fall season by winning the War Memorial Regatta. Youngster Tom Daly copped the Monotype Championship in the fall as Navy came out first in six of seven regattas on its way to an equally fine showing in the spring MAISA Championships. Team Captain Don Kern augmented the efforts of Bob Fischel and Dave Halberstadt in pacing the hardy crews to one of their finest years. 662 A 3r memorial regatta champions 663 fl p A inter sports enliven era of Stribling Walk is covered with inches of cold, slushy snow and a bitterly cold wind whips off the Bay but within the warm confines of MacDonough Hall and the Field House, the pursuit of athletic ex- cellence goes on. The noises of its progress are many, from the racket of squash balls in the fourth wing courts to the rush and tumble of water in the nata- torium, from the crunch of spikes on the field house track to the sharp crack of a rifle on the Bancroft range. At perhaps no other season is such a wide var- iety of sports available for that mid who wishes to keep his blood moving after a long night studying or for the plebe who must decide which of the many Saturday afternoon contests will be his to see this weekend. The choices are varied but the same en- thusiasm is there wherever Navy trods a mat or belts a ball. 664 ■m r d raof non-light ji schec reaso tliiiyi wdich snags, Cohar mains ' Smalle asbas task al trols. basketball basketbsll scores NAVY ' S 1965-66 RECORD (7-12) Navy . 53 Fordham 57 Navy . 55 Pennsylvania 72 Navy . 59 Oregon State 55 Navy . 54 Princeton 72 Navy . 83 Gettysburg 55 Navy . 65 Davidson 60 Navy . 47 Princeton 62 Navy . 75 Georgetov n 88 Navy . 73 Syracuse 83 Navy . 99 George Wash 63 Navy . 72 Temple 50 Navy . 99 Frank.

Bright spots in the season include both victories over George Washington and Franklin and Marshall in which Navy garnered ninety-nine points to win. Top scorers for the season were Bill Radcliffe and Captain Chris Reddington, who also topped the team in rebounds with 180 snags. Hugh Kilmartin, Tom Martin, Tim Cohane and Charles Brewer were additional mainstays in the scoring column. Coach Smalley, who succeeded coach Ben Carnevale as basketball mentor, will have a rebuilding task ahead of him as he takes over the con- trols.

On two occasions, with the score tied 14-14, John Nichols scored heavyweight falls over his hapless opponents to give us the decision. Of course, the work of Captain Wayne Hicks, who defeated Stuart of Lehigh 1-0 in overtime, Guido Carloni, and Pete Vanderlofske and Gary Burger was instrumental in establishing the scoring base for Nichols to fall upon. Bob Sanders ' injury just before the Easterns may have been a factor in Navy ' s second place finish but his 7-0-1 record did nothing but add to the glitter of the overall season record. ™ r-i " ,-3 670 .•4 ason A ith win over Army ] 671 fencers log 5-3 ye3r Coach Andy Deladrier and Captain Charles Votava fencing A decisive victory in the epee team competition at the Intercollegiate Fencing Association Championships was the capstone of Navy ' s 5-3 season. Howard Corr, Frank Hewitt and Ed Ohiert engineered that triumph while Hal Walker and Captain Charles Votava added their talents to the season effort. The record for dual meets could very well have been different since both NYU and Columbia nipped the Navy swordsmen by only one touch. Victories were scored over Princeton, Cornell, Brooklyn College, Penn State and C.C.N.Y. Coach Andre Deladrier ' s team received constant support from Vincent Corry, Jay Rorick, Armando Heredia, and Dick Meade, all of whom posted winning season records. 672 ■M squ3sh 10-2 year sees airmy defeat Savoring the sweet taste of victory over Army, coach Art Potter ' s racketeers swung their way to a 10-2 record. Their 7-2 trouncing of the Army squad broke a string of four straight wins the cadets had carefully collected. Steve Abbot, Dwight Caldwell and Bob Emery were bright stars on Navy ' s squash horizon and Bob Spooner continued a recent Navy custom by winning the Maryland State Championship, thus becoming the fourth consecutive Mid to do so. Dave Scott and Bob Earl, both segundoes, wielded powerful rackets dur- ing the season, aiding the team well toward a most satisfying season record. I J, 673 k rifle and pistol teams post 6- Two All-America choices on the pistol team and a 6-3 tally by the riflemen are indicative of the success enjoyed by Navy marksmen during the last season. Both Tom Decker and Jim Gilbert of coach Art Sievers pistol team were named to the honor squad, Jim for the second year. Interim coach Ed Trott, serving after coach Ken Barber suffered a heart attack, led the rifle team to a fine record, losing only to such pov ' er- houses as West Virginia, Citadel, and Army. Ward Masden, Carl Finefrock, Dwight Hughes and Danny Schuder were consistent contributors to the season ' s total which included the NRA sectional tournament. The pistol team was twice victimized by the BuWeps team, ending the season with a 4-4 record.

While chalking up wins over Temple, Pitt, West Chester and Massachusetts, Navy dropped decisions to Penn State, Springfield, Syracuse and the aforemen- tioned Army team. Gordon Pettus was our star performer, scoring more first place finishes than any other squad member. Not only did he work the long horse, parallel bars and side horse, but he also added the rings to his versatile bag of tricks. Captain Armand Zeddies, who was sixth in the Easterns on the high bar, led such stalwarts as Dave Gentile, Wayne Erickson, Steve Delesie, Walt Newton and Bob Byerly onto the floor. Both Far Arrington and Neal Oshiro rounded out the squad with their work on the still rings. 677 STORA GE ROOM indoor track In what must be regarded as one of the finest indoor track seasons ever, Navy took the measure of seven teams, set recoras in seven events, finished third in the Heptagonals and v ound up in a blaze of glorious sparks by defeating Army. Greg Williams lowered the two-mile mark to 9:04.4 against Army: youngster Bob Donohue beat the world record-holder in the sixty-yard dash to set a new academy record at 6.1 seconds. In addition. Buzz Lawlor ' s 4.12.1 mile vs. Fordham, Jay Prout ' s 600 time of 1:11.3, and John Wright ' s 1000 clocking of 2:12 were all new Naval Academy standards. Finally, a lightening fast mile relay team of Jay Prout, Gary Dimmig, Jim Kiffer and John Cosgrove pared the old mark for the four-man mile to 3:16.2 agains. Pitt even as a two-mile team of John Wright, Bill Wright, Hugh Couch and Ron Knode, after setting new records on five occasions, was finally settling for a fine 7:34.9 timing. Heptagonal championships were garnered by Greg Williams in the two- mile event, Stan Holmes in the shotput, and Tom Palkie in the broadjump. Their performances in these events were indicative of the spirited go- get ' em attitude that marked a truly successful year.

Also, notice that two fellow players also make the same select group ... " Such is the admiring comment heard throughout the country wherever people who know and enjoy lacrosse gather to discuss the con- tinuing brilliance of coach Bilderback ' s teams. This year. Navy lacrosse had Jim Lewis, Turnbull Trophy and Ail- American, and Howie Crisp and Dick Salmon, also Ail- Americans, to give it even more fire. Owen McFadden, team captain, was right behind Jim in scoring, having one of his best days against Maryland when he scored five goals to help Navy gain a pivotal 1 1-9 victory. Frank Markowski and Bob Bandy made substantial contributions to the scoring column even as Bob Tarr, Phil Norton, Jim Long and Sam Marrone were moving effectively about the field. This was a year to remember in lacrosse, but, then again, the next year has a way of being worth remem- bering as well. 684 venth National Championship 1 lacrosse scores Navy. . Navy. . Navy. .

They were denied the final sweetener, however, as coach Harvey Muller ' s men bQ.wed slightly to Army in a close one, 5-4. 689 i golf Captain T. R.

Jones returning, we will be looking to improve that standing next year. Ik tHitA jba tifeiittiiiihuftiiwti 690 ocean sailing Long months of backbrea king work preparing the yawls for the spring season and the Newport-Bermuda classic were paid off in disappointment when none of our entries placed among the top finishers in that biannual race. Some consola- tion was offered by merely being in Bermuda, one of the earliest members of the British Commonwealth. Further mis- fortune was the fate of Royono which, having lost her main- mast short of the mark, had to be rescued by the Coast Guard. The lessons of seamanship learned under sail and the exhiliration of wind and spray were the wages of the ocean sailors during the past season. 691 track Records don ' t often give an indication of the toil and dedica- tion that compiled them and Navy ' s 5-2 season in outdoor track is no exception. Mere numbers can ' t say much about Tom Palkie winning four gold medals in the Outdoor Heptagonals or about Larry Froistad ' s leap in the Army-Navy tilt No, statistics can ' t give any indication of the hope that was there when a great 440-relay team brought Navy to within inches of an Army victory. What about John Lawlor winning the mile and Ron Holcombe slipping over the pole vault? What about John Root kicking his way over the high jump while Jay Prout whizzed through the corners of the 440? Can statistics ever measure the anticipation and joy of winning that followed these men and others, such as Joe Wiggins in the hurdles and Gary Dimmig in the relay? The answer, of course, is no. The numbers will record with clinical accuracy the success or failure of another Navy team ... It is for us to remember not only the success of the sixty-six track team but their never-failing deter- mination as well. t 692 1 - •?

A! Lemerande, a youngster coach Joe Duff is glad to have around, made the All East squad while leading the Navy batmen in hitting with a fine .372 average. Bill Dukiet, Bill Powell and Don Eshleman weren ' t far behind him in that depart- ment while Don further distinguished himself by playing both first base and centerfield positions. Among the members of the pitching staff, Rick Miller (5-1 ) and Rick Buchanan (4-1 ) reigned supreme with lefty George Volkman posting 4-2 right behind. Rick Buchanan added two home runs to the team total, one of them breaking a 2-2 tie against Gettysburg. Even the loss to Army in the season closer could not detract too much from the enduring glow of a very creditable season. uk 697 R A9fi 69 ' ?

In these last few pages, we have tried to convey to you our impressions of that world and our place in it. You may now turn the page for a few words from that individual who gave this book birth— the editor. 701 mm a message from the editor. There comes a time in the life of every editor when he must explain why there aren ' t more white hairs on his head than might be expected; this is mf r turn. Were it not for the really dedicated efforts of a great many individuals, the . _; ' LUCKY BAG would still be only a nice idea. John Sigler, Don Weil, and Guinn Clark devoted an amazing amount of time to biographies, management and money, re- spectively. When Guinn wasn ' t worrying over his dimes, he was prodding Bob Lang, the slave-driven photography editor,, to keep down the costs of pictures. George Gorman pieced together the chain of command, a time consuming effort. A vote of thanks is dve also to Tom Petillo who wrote the copy for the football coverage. Two vital figures in the production of the 1966 LUCKY BAG were Henry Wittich, a staunch believer in our success and a fine moral support, and Fred Koger, an exceptionally creative manager. With Rex Hendershot, who pro- duced the strikingly beautiful art for the opening section, these representatives of Taylor Publishing sweated out the deadlines with us. Marvin Merin and Mai Goodman came through many times with the excellent photography without which no annual can succeed. Supplemented by loyal members of the fourth es- tate, such as Randy Henderson and Goody Goodnundson, the staff overcame the sometimes seemingly insurmountable demands placed upon it to come up with the material I asked for. Neal Oshiro and Denny Young were two more mainstay: of a truly competent photographic staff; that entire group of camera wielders deserves a special pat on the back. The man responsible for the execution of the cover was Dominic Graziano of Smith Company; his talents are obvious. I woulc also like to thank the Naval Photo people of both Washington and Annapolis or their very real help in assembling the end sheets and the class history section; the Navy does take care of its own. Roommates are a special breed; mine-was ni exception. Paul Friedman knew as much about this project as I did while he served expertly as duty message relayer, phone answering service and otherwise right hand man. Finally, this page would not be complete without mentioning Lieutenant Smedberg, our officer representative who, in addition to his duties as the Superintendent ' s Flag Lieutenant, acquired the Wro bl we needed from a sometimes skeptical executive department to cover a mulfS de of events. Thank you, sir. For me, producing this edition of the BAG has been an education in working with a fine group of people. To each and every one of them, I offer my thanks and congratulations on a job well done. --•««8l y COLOR GUARD 1 fall set Thompson, J. R., Kim, J. W. II, Ben edict, C. L., Whalen, J. F. Ill Gregg, F.

The Tongue of the Ocean — a large, deep and stable undersea area in the British Bahamas — is the site for AUTEC, the U.S. Navy ' s new Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center. ITT, as prime contractor for AUTEC, is now establishing at the site a unique underwater laboratory measuring some 175 watery square miles. Work has already begun to implement the highly sophisticated electronic sys- tems planned for this vast weapons range facility. The AUTEC range will be 35 miles long and 5 miles wide, with an impact area 6,000 yards in diameter at its southern end. AUTEC will permit the whole range of undersea warfare problems — de- tection, classification, pinpointing and destruction — to be examined in a con- trolled, yet authentic, environment. The facility ' s ihstrumentation gear, including underwater hydrophone ar- rays, will enable the Navy to sort out real target information from the rest of its watery environment. This is one of the most complex problems of anti- submarine warfare. ITT is also prime contractor for Kauai Fleet Tactical Range (KFTR), the Navy ' s deep-water tracking range off the coast of Kauai Island, Hawaii. This 50-square mile range will provide the Navy ' s Pacific fleet submarines, surface vessels and aircraft with an instrumented site for conducting tac- tical exercises. ITT ' s broad-range capability for facilities such as AUTEC or KFTR in- cludes equipment for high density storage of multi-channel analog in- formation, recorders for underwater environments, highly sophisticated sonar, simulators, signal processing and acoustical hardware, and ocean engineering. The installation and operation of vast undersea test centers like these are indicative of ITT ' s unique knowl- edge of the marine environment. International Telephone and Tele- graph Corporation.

LOCKHEED AIRCRAFT CORPORATION XV r Research Submersibles: A report from General Dynamics New breed of vessel: A hundred and thirty feet down In the Aegean Sea. a Byzantine galley h d hid- den It " ; secrets for almost fifteen centu- ries. Then in 1964. University of Pennsylvania Museum archeologists mounted paired cameras on a new re- search submarine. Asherah. and learned more from the three-dimensional pho- tographs obtained in one " flight " over the wreck than had been possible from weeks of scuba diving. This was the first of dozens of under- sea jobs already done by Asherah. The Asherah is the 339th-and at 17 feet long, the smallest— submarine built by General Dynamics. For comparison, the Holland, the very first submarine we de- livered to the Navy in 1900. was 54 feet long. Over the years, we have built the prototvpes of most classes of United States Navy submarines, including its nuclear-powered undersea ships. But the true manned research subma- rines are really a new breed of boat Less than a score now exist. Depth and mobility: Unlike bathyscaphes, designed to drop to great depths but remain relatively immobile for passive observation, the new research submarines must have depth capability, the ability to perform useful work, and the mobility to survey extended areas at a reasonable speed. Asherah is one of the first true re- search submarines. It can dive to 600 feet (World War II subs rarely dived much below 30U feet), stay submerged for ten hours, cruise at three to four knots, move in all directions. An im- proved sister ship. Star II, is made of th? same HY-80 steel that goes into nuclear submarines; it has depth capa- bility to 1.200 feet, A larger boat we call Star III (see cut- away drawing below) is built of even tougher HY-IOO steel. It has a cruising depth of 2.000 feet, and is equipped with an external mechanical arm that has interchangeable " hands " — a clamshell grip, a wire cutter, and a " three-finger " which can pick up a pencil or a 200- pound weight, or manipulate a valve. rushed by air for a rescue operation. But subs with many special charac- teristics will be needed for exploring — and for exploiting — the sea. Some vessels will have to withstand pressures up to 10.000 pounds per square inch, to allow them to penetrate into mid-ocean abysses four miles deep. Work subs for. say. mining will have to be stable enough in a buoyant environ- ment not to be whipped about in reac- tion to the force of their own tools We have already done a study for the CUTAWAY OF STAR III Vertical propulsion motor Main ballast tank Bowthruster Mam propulsion motor Mechanical arm A hir(ih IhiiciiiIi iIw Acj cciii Sea. The Aluminaut, the largest research sub so far. was built by General Dy- namics for Reynolds International to prove, among other things, the feasibili- ty of aluminum as a hull metal. The 5 I- foot Aluminaut is designed to operate at depths up to 15.000 feet, under pres- sures up to more than 7,000 pounds per square inch. Aluminaut. in early sea trials, has cruised as deep as 6,250 feet, and remained submerged for over 30 continuous hours AWorld War II mili- tary submarine rarely remained sub- merged for more than 24 hours Problems and needs: These early research subs still have many limitations of speed, range and submerged endurance. They require back-up by a mother ship and have to be carried or towed to a job location. This last " limitation " can sometimes be an advantage. Asherah and Star II. for example, are small enough to be Bureau of Fisheries showing feasibility of a submarine to track oceanic fish. It would be 160 feet long, carry 31 per- sons at speeds up to 20 knots, and could cruise submerged for up to 90 days. Right now. we dont think there will ever be one single all-purpose type of research-work submarine. Just as land vehicles range from motor scooters to 20-lon earthmovers. so will most manned submersibles be designed and built for special purposes General Dynamics is a company of sci- entists, engineers and skilled workers whose interests cover every major field of technology, and who produce: aircraft; marine, space and missile systems; tac- tical support equipment; nuclear, elec- tronic and communication systems; machinery; building materials; coal and gases. QENERAU DYNAMICS XVI Make room for a new idea of Ford. Sure, we ' re the people who build cars— from Mustangs to Lincoln Continentals. And the same people who come up with some of the newest ideas in cars— like 2-way tailgates, Stereo-Sonic Tape Systems. But that doesn ' t mean when we build a Phiico refrig- erator, we put a dashboard in it. We ' ve never limited our thinking to automobiles As far back as forty years ago we were making trucks, tractor plows and airplanes. Today one of our " assembly lines " is less than one inch long. Making Phiico micro-circuits for the Apollo Block II guidance computer. Others are producing air conditioners. . .color TV . . . communication systemb . . . Autolite spark plugs. We designed NASA ' s huge Mission Control Center in Houston. (Try putting that in your garage.) The point is— next time you see our familiar Ford trademark, please make room in your mind for more than cars. Make room for a new idea of Ford. Where the new ideas are coming from. 4: i XVII P Don ' t make any snap decisions on l uynig our new Executive. Wait until you ' ve seen our other 39 models. It won ' t be easy. Even for Pontiac, Star Chief Executive is one mean actiievement; big-car looks, big-car ride, little-car price. 124-inch Bonneville chassis, 389-cubic inch V-8, inte- riors that make you think a spoiled potentate had the last word, backup lights for better visibility In night maneuvers to the rear. All in one package priced low enough to make a lot of lesser cars hide in shame. But the point is that our other 39 models have personalities equally unique, equally exciting. You name your kind of car and we ' ve got it. From the luxurious Brougham to the all-new Tempest with the unique overhead cam engine. And if we ' ve talked you into looking over all 40 of our tigers, don ' t be ungrateful. At least we ' ve confined yOLir new-car hunting to one showroom.
