" It was only two years ago that the Second Class Squad Leaders walked through the same doors admiring the coolness and competence of the man who was telling them which way to go. Only after becoming summer squad leaders do they realize that they themselves are more tense than any plebe. The White Badge of Courage For the squad leader, plebe summer involves complete responsibility for the training of individuals, each with a unique background - instructing, counseling, correcting, punishing, reporting, reprimanding, mustering, inspecting and reassuring. It involves a ceaseless facade of confidence and almost inhuman harshness. It involves constant aloneness which is accompanied by silence only after the last plebe has turned in for his eight hours of sleep. , ,ir_a l .

The veneer of individuality is stripped away. It lies in piles of shorn hair, or is shipped honne with civilian clothes. In its place is developed the individuality of the inner man, which soon becomes apparent. The natural lead- ers surge forward, but often the slow starter and the plodder come out the best. First it is a circus madhouse, a surging rollercoaster without direction or control, with gargoyle-like squad leaders barking orders from the sides as you rush past. Time becomes a live dimension, she races with you or drags along in spite of you as she pleases. Three of her minutes on a uniform race dilate to an eternity when doing le g raises. But order returns one day. Chaos is replaced by learning. The rifle range, knockabouts, yp ' s, p— rades, and lecture upon lecture point the way to a new life. The culmination of plebe summer is Parents ' Weekend. Parents come to explore the academy and in the process discover a new son, one who is now well prepared to begin a rewarding four years.

Homecoming: | A Good Weekend To Drag. To us it is a football weekend, to the old grads it is Christmas, Mardi Gras, Midway, Fourth of July. This year the class of ' 48 celebrated their twentieth reunion. In honor of the event, they presented the brigade with a new baby goat to carry on the tradition of Navy Mascots. Boston College, unfortunately, had little re- spect for either grads or goats, and pasted us with a 49 to 15 romp. At least the weather was on our side. It was a sunny weekend, well suited to sailing and reminiscing. As usual, the Alumni Dinner and Party was a success. Old friends and old wine gave a warm temper to the festivities. Many drags caught their first glimpse of how we live as they visited our rooms during visiting hours. Comments ranged from " neat but dreary " to " Where are your drapes? " A -- • ; Above Left: Playboy centerfolds disappear as the dis- staff side visits rooms during visiting hours on Sunday morning.

V i™ The City of Chicago played host to the 1968 Navy— Air Force game. In gratitude for this opportunity, the City Fathers volunteered to assume the expenses of transporting two thou- sand midshipmen and an equal number of cadets to the game, and to feed, house, and entertain them for a day. The sixteen hour bus and train marathon left much to be desired. However, the gilded extravagance of the Conrad Hilton made luxurious fare compared to the stark sterility of Mother Bancroft. The march to Soldiers Field proceeded without incident from demonstrators, mostly due to the apathy of the yippies and company, although Mayor Daley ' s legions will probably get a large measure of credit. The lack of sanguinity proved our accompanying officer corps ' anxieties to be folly, as usual. The game proved to be a more substantial struggle. Air Force finally winning, 26 to 20. Navy spirit got a real boost from the four comely additions to our cheerleading corps, compliments of the Chicago Playboy Club. The post-game festivities were equally memo- rable: Dinner and dancing in the Hilton Ballroom with dates provided by the city. The surround- ings were elegant, the cuisine excellent, but the bar, alas, was dry. Local taverns saved the day, and the ball assumed a more convivial aspect. The blind dates turned out to be a bell-shaped cross-section of American college beauty, with the mean falling into the not-much-on-looks-but- a-good-personality type. Men who happened to draw partners from the minus three sigma group could take solace in the many cash prizes which accompanied their misfortune. ,) • :yA ' T : :s?52Br. i v i ' ?,?sw i(77i»:(f fi m MUi: ff Top: Everyone gets a hand on lucky football held by Captain Mike Clark.

" No matter what your winloss record, if you beat Army you have a winning season, " so the cliche goes. That ' s not really true, but everyone knows Army is the most important. You can feel the excitement building for two weeks before the game. Banners, posters, and models of all sorts adorn Tecumseh Court, where the old Indian himself dons his warpaint, reminding the Mids to think hostility as they go to class. As always, you throw out the record book for the Army-Navy game. Despite a dismal record to date, we pulled into a 14-14 tie late in the game, only to be beaten by a long scoring pass, 21-14. I But time heals all wounds; in this case the time being about 3 hours from the end of the game to the beginning of the various parties. The largest affair is always the ball at the Bellevue-Stratford, but the real action was elsewhere, especially in the Crew Club ' s boathouses along the Schuylkill river above the Art Museum. For those not fortunate enough to be on a weekend, it all ends at midnight, as the return buses load for the trip back. After bidding his drag adieu, the average mid, noble creature, stumbled aboard the bus for several hours of induced oblivion, muttering, " Wait till next year.

Is A Good Place To Be From . . , To most of us living beyond the range of practical travel for a normal weekend, Christmas was an opportunity to visit parents and sweet- hearts after several months of separation. It was a time of dates and bars and parties, of gift- exchanging, and of skiing or swimming. The build-up of enthusiasm for Christmas really started after the Army-Navy game, and reached its climax in the food throwing battle in the mess hall on the morning of leave. The signs of the build-up were manifold. Doors were dec- orated in the guise of Christmas packages, trees and tinsel and sparkling lights appeared in every room, and musical tastes turned to carols of the season. In the Academic Department, the signs of Christmas were a deterioration in the already meager interest displayed for most subjects, and a far away look in the eyes of the students. Many companies sponsored company parties as an out- let for the high spirits which advent of Christmas eave brought on. The Chapel Choir presented their annual Messiah, and of course there was a Christmas Formal. But these mere trappings could not communicate the feeling at that last formation and the dismissal to go on leave. «siif i .1 r» ' : mi ill I I Dark Ages Bring Year into Home Stretch This year, as in every year gone past, the period from the beginning of the second semester until Spring Leave was characterized by the special attitude from which it derives its name . . . The Dark Ages. Yet it was more than just a period of time; it was an attitude, an atmosphere, a way of life characterized by monotony and indifference. It was a time of work, study, and practice levied on spirits already deflated by the end of Christmas Leave and no prospect of another leave for several months. It was a time of cold wind and snow and sleet on the way to morning classes. It was paying eighteen dollars a month for a garage out in town. It was being put in hack for the weekend because someone in your squad didn ' t have a recent haircut. It was having to take your only date in a month to the drag house to watch television on a Sunday afternoon. But it was also a time of humor, the perverse, ironic kind that evolves in an all male society. Such things as " coming around " to a Plebe, or presenting a brick to the guy who had the ugliest date on the weekend, or setting booby-traps for the window closer were great tedium breakers. w K iM-ii IIP ' f ■.u « 1 1—] " " " - ■• ' % ■t 1 " " " ' IL«liK« ■ TV ■ ? v-r 1 " 5JPf | 1 op left: Touch football after a new snow is an Invigorating monotony killer.

Dark Ages Also, there were several memorable events during the Dark Ages, such as the Masquera ders Show, Service Selection Night, Musical Clubs Show, Exchange Weekends, and others, not to mention the many smaller events which stand out, such as the Friday night beer busts, and the arrival of a new football coach. Now, in retrospect, the Dark Ages appear as they really were, a time rough to live but fun to relive in the accompanying pages. t ri l Becket Highlight of Masqueraders Season. As always, a certain sign of Spring at the Naval Academy was seeing the members of the Masqueraders running around Bancroft Hall carrying weird costumes, sporting most un- Academy like long hair, and smelling of grease paint. One could easily deduce that they were hard at work producing the annual Masquerader ' s Spring Show. This year required an even more extraordinary amount of time and effort by the cast and crew, as the Masqueraders ambitiously decided to produce the play " Becket " by Jean Anouilh. The very professional and highly en- joyable performance which resulted was an ex- cellent example of the diverse talents found in the Brigade. Hundredth Night Closes Out Dark Ages Hundredth Night this year was the topic ot heated discussion in many wardrooms. Many progressive minded companies decided that the practice was outdated now that the days of real Piebe-running were superseded by the new Plebe Indoctrination Manual, which expressly forbade the popular torture techniques of yore. Other companies opted to continue 100th Night as a sacred tradition. The result was an uproarious evening, with the emphasis on fun rather than sweat. The Plebes were spectators to such exciting contests as First Class shoe polish races, nude leap frog, relay races, carrier landings, and uniform races. Whether or not the 100th Night ceremonies continue in years to come Is moot, but if it does, it will likely be modeled after this past one.

Once Upon a Mattress 1969 will be remembered as the year in which the Musical Clubs Show left the realm of variety shows and moved into full length Broadway Musical Comedies. The first effort, Once Upon a Mattress, by Marshall Barer and Mary Rodgers, was a resounding success. " Mattress " proved to be an excellent choice for the first musical because of its light, just-for-fun theme. " Mattress " is the kind of show that can be enjoyed by everyone, including the cast, who had many good times in producing a superb show. Below: . . . For a Princess is a delicate thing?

Dago Ball This year the combined Foreign Language Clubs sponsored a Ball with the young ladies of foreign nationality in the Washington, D. C. area. The Ball was attended by several bus loads of daughters from the foreign embassies and exchange students from the area universities. Following the formal reception in Memorial Hall the group retired to Smoke Hall for refreshments and dance music provided by the Spiffies. The affair provided an excellent opportunity to utilize acquired foreign language skills and to foster a better international understanding, not to mention meeting an attractive girl.

The " Dark Ages " are past and the only thing left to do is prepare for finals, it is the beginning of the end of another year at Navy. It is a time of anticipation of the future amid great activity. June Week can ' t be too far away and thoughts of summer leaves, girls, cars and parties are evident in every- one ' s conversations. flf. m .. ■ ■-.■r»- FHI9 K H fflj] K ' ' ■M 1 m7 ji RICHARD F H PEDERSENJ H ■ ■ ■ ' tU miiii 1 ' • ' Hl HI fi -v S 1 J !: H ' 1, Kl: -JUNE WEEK ' 69- -JUNE WEEK ' 69- ' ' A Til r iHv ' r H ' l k k JKm J K - " J ASiT -JUNE WEEK ' 69- -JUNE WEEK ' 69- 1 ACADEMICS Administration ... 89 Departments ... 92 Trident Scholars . . . 116 p BHBW»WBWW9 " W«ppiJi ' .« ' i-i. I JimvJ! ' ' ' ' " ' ' ' " ' In one of the Chauvenet Hall conference rooms the academic board is deciding major policy changes with regards to the academic program. Academic Board A. Bernard Drought became Dean of the Naval Academy at a very critical time. Midship- men marched to class and everyone followed the same academic program regardless of ability or past education. Pressure from all over the nation pointed out the need for a more academic atmo- sphere here. The academy under his leadership has made steady progress in improving the edu- cational opportunities available for midshipmen. Since his appointment as Dean in 1964, the academy has introduced validation, the minors program, and the option to overload academic courses. There are programs under study to elim- inate most of the remaining core courses which lead to a B.S. degree in engineering and allow midshipmen to major in fields of their choice. The changes have not been easy nor has the academic community remained completely pas- sive to them. During the fall of 1966 the acad- emy was disrupted by a grade fixing scandal. The cause was finally labeled a misunderstanding and a resulting disagreement over the speed of the academic revolution. With the appointment of A. Bernard Drought as academic dean of the academy, a new era of academic change was born. The academy is currently in its second generation of change. Heads of Departments CAPT. R. W.

G.HAYNES Head of Modern Languages Department . Mathematics Chauvenet Hall offers a stark contrast to the old home of mathematics. Buildings 133 and 186 tucked in next to the laundry. The department considers itself more of a means to an end rather than an end in itself. One of its stated objectives is to provide the midshipman an ease in the use of mathematics in order to solve problems in other departments. This objective causes a prob- lem of co-ordination between departments. What midshipman has not heard that he has certainly had all the techniques necessary for certain prob- lem solving taught to him in the math depart- ment, when in fact he is lucky if the techniques were even in the same math book he used? In the present program of studies, three se- mesters of calculus, one semester of probability and one semester of vector theory are required. Obtaining extra instruction is much easier and more pleasant in the new surroundings of Chauvenet Hall. m I A midshipman studies a programmed lesson in science. The academy is pioneering in the field of computer teaching in hopes that the bulk of the nation ' s future educational systems can utilize this aid. Science This year the science department moved into Michelson Hall. During the past tew years notice- able changes have been taking place in search of that better way to convey knowledge to midship- men. The department tries to demonstrate to each student basic principles upon which all our more specialized tools and equipment are built. Many times on the brink of despair, a midship- man has been told that the subject matter itself is not the only consideration. The logical thought processes involved in understanding the subject and solving its problems are of equal importance. This fact may be true, but most difficult for a midshipman at the far right of a grading curve to understand. In the core curriculum the department teaches chemistry, electrical science, and physics. This year the department has moved into the realm of computer instruction on an experimental basis. If successful, the program will be introduced as a teaching method in all areas of academics and serve as a prototype for universities across the nation. Michelson Hall offers many new laboratory facilities. The new labs include an acoustics lab, biology lab, for oceanographic work and a dark room for time lapse work. i -? ' ,5frTl 97 Engineering Introducing midshipmen to the fundamentals required in the operation of shipboard propul- sion systems and aircraft operation is the primary objective of the engineering department. To this end, the department has extensive classroom and laboratory facilities in Isherwood, Griffin, and Melville Halls. The laboratory complexes include the sub-critical reactor, the mechanics and mate- rials lab, the fluid mechanics lab, the internal combustion lab, the wind tunnel, the ship hydro- mechanics lab and the thermo-dynamics labora- tory. Minors offered include aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, and naval engineering with either a naval architecture or marine engi- neering option. Engineering stands to be the next recipient in the extensive building program un- derway at the naval academy. The present plan includes razing the present facilities and building a new structure as an extension of the new Michelson Hall complex. In Isherwood Hall midshipmen and their instructor wait for a tensile specimen to separate as part of a strength of materials lab. 101 Lt. W. S, Norman, a Naval Flight Officer, discusses some of the European agreements which led up to World War II. .T«4M - ad- ' v English, History and Government Although the emphasis at the academy is on the technical and the professional, the English, History, and Government department attempts to round out the midshipman in the social sciences and the humanities. In addition to the eight required courses, the department offers over sixty electives in areas from speech to political theory and from western literary heri- tage to modern African problems. In the core program the midshipman is ex- posed to subjects ranging from the inner work- ings and hidden mechanisms of American govern- ment to the fundamental principles of seapower. Each year the academy sponsors the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference (NAFAC). Colleges from all over the United States send their best students in foreign affairs to this week of panel discussion and guest lectures. This year ' s planned topic covers the problems associated with the Indian Ocean Area. The department plans to move into facilities being remodeled in Sampson Hall. j ..A»jMjmm Modern Languages The Modern Languages Department is pres- ently located in the old academy infirmary but is soon to move to Ward Hall, the present weap- ons-computer center. The department offers in struction in French, Italian, Portugese, German, Russian, Spanish, and Chinese. The Chinese pro- gram was instituted in the academic year of 1967-1968. The department has extensive laboratory and tape facilities to aid in language instruction. Also officers of foreign navies are assigned as in- structors as part of an exchange program. The Language clubs hold banquets to offer an oppor- tunity for the midshipmen to practice their lin- guistic skills in after dinner speaking programs. Trips are also organized to view plays, visit em- bassies, and offer midshipmen other exposures to the culture of the people whose language they are studying. Each fourthclassman is required to take two semesters of a language of his choice or show enough proficiency to validate the two semesters. It is hoped that during this exposure the fourth- classman not only picks up a good introduction to his chosen language, but also realizes the potential importance of the knowledge of a foreign language to a naval officer. While studying in intermediate levels, students are first exposed to literature of the language they are studying. In this Russian class Associate Professor Tolstoy is dis- cussing some of the points of a poem by Yevgeny Yevtushenko that the students are translating. «H aat. SV ' ?-- ' - ' 1 " i- ' -t ' .

' ' J Naval Science In Luce Hall can be found today ' s naval leaders attempting to teach midshipmen the sub- tleties of their future profession. In addition to the classroom facilities available in Luce Hall, there are four operational Combat Information Centers, a Navigation Plotting Room, a Plane- tarium, and a new Environmental Science Lab- oratory. The curriculum offered by the department is undergoing great change. Current emphasis is on bringing back many professionally oriented sub- jects cut in recent academic upheavals. The new orientation course being offered to the fourth class is one such examp le. Minors programs offered include management, operations analysis, and oceanography, all growing fields becoming increasingly important in today ' s world. The leadership techniques dem- onstrated and taught in the management courses are particularly important in the training of a naval officer. Who can forget the two hours spent assem- bling a confidential pub that could have taken one hour, or for those in the class of ' 69, being called to attention second class year at the signal drill test. Members of the first class receive military law infor- mation which will be very useful to them in the fleet. I M ET T it ' it tf f » m i Naval Science Naval Science is also responsible for one of the more favorite subjects here at the Naval Academy — Naval Tactics. When not out running tactics on the YP ' s (yard patrol craft unique to the Naval Academy and the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island) midshipmen spend time in the Combat Information Centers running anti- air and anti-submarine operations. No midship- man particularly the Marines and the Airdales will ever forget the weather during the late November operational season or the early March season. Now when LHA equals - no, wait a minute local mean ti-, no if Betelgeuse is near Spica and - Sir, are you sure this is for real? " nrsT 4 it ► ' — ■ ? . Lt. Hammer explains the operation of shipboard departments to a plebe class. i ik. Weapons Until t his year the first contact that a mid- shipman had with the Weapons Department after plebe summer was during first class year. And at times during the first semester, many a midship- man felt that the department was seeking revenge for the forced separation. This feeling came in spite of the department ' s revision of the courses in order that they be more meaningful to a midshipman and his career. Much remodeling has been done in Ward Hall in the past four years, and there are now good facilities for digital and analog computer study and explosives experimentation. Ward Hall also houses the educational television studio. This year the fourth classmen were introduced to shipboard systems to help them prepare for their youngster cruise. The department produces many men in ad- vanced courses who go on after graduation to do extremely well in post-graduate systems analysis study. Unhappiness is having the error statement come out longer than the program, but aid is always available to the bewildered midshipman. Libraries The academy library system, in spite of its recent expansions, is still pressed for space. The present facilities include the Mahan Hall library, the Annex, the Brigade library, and the Isher- wood Hall technical library. One of the proposed new buildings will be a new library to serve the Brigade. The Mahan library is the largest and oldest and serves as the major source for term papers. The Brigade library is part of Bancroft and serves as a comfortable study area. Periodicals and other references are kept in the Annex. The Isherwood library was created to help ease the strain on the Mahan library and to provide a central source of technical material for midship- man use. The Mahan library serves as a place to stop and study during a free period before class. . ' . ' - X - j .

The department is not only responsible for our " academic " athletics, but also co-ordinates and supervises the intramural and varsity athletic programs at the academy. The intramural pro- gram one of the largest such programs in the nation is backed by facilities which include the Field House, Dahlgren Hall, Macdonough Hall, the Natatorium, and one-hundred acres of ath- letic fields. With these extensive facilities available to the department, it achieves a high degree of success in accomplishing its objectives of developing skill and confidence in the midshipman, introducing to and teaching him carry-over sports and giving him instruction in organizing and conducting ath- letic programs after graduation. %4m ' Si fe St iLi .i . ' . ■ t DONALD H.TANAKA - An Experimental Investigation of Turbu lence at the Wall of a Pipe Trident Scholars The Trident Scholar Program has slowly grown from six scholars in 1963 to sixteen in 1968. The aim of the program is to provide a few exceptionally capable midshipmen with the opportunity to carry on independent studies during first class year. Midshipmen are selected for the program at the end of second class year and are exempted from the major portion of the core curriculum of first class year. A member of the faculty, familiar with the project area, is assigned to each midshipman as an adviser. Tri- dent scholars meet periodically with the Trident Committee, a group of the teaching faculty familiar with research projects, at dinners and after, present a report of the progress of their project for critical review. Upon the completion of the project, the midshipmen are required to submit written papers based on their research and findings. SIMON A.

( 4 i Class Officers Yes, Virginia, the Naval Academy does have class officers but it isn ' t easy. How do you represent John Average Mid in an environ- ment where " chain of command " is a way of life and central authority decides what kind of toothbrush everyone uses. It isn ' t easy — it may not be possible — but this year ' s officers tried harder. Under the able leadership of President, Bill Newton, the 1969 officers presented the controversial class pol icy, redefined the Plebe system, and consistently displayed an awareness of rank and file opinion. All four cabinets dealt with such diverse problems as the honor concept, spirit and midshipman alienation. In a year when college students across the nation are demanding an increased voice in their administration, the midshipman class officers remain the single most important link between the Brigade and authority. It isn ' t an easy job. Class of 1969: 1. W.H. Newton (President), 2. C.T. Burbage (Vice-President), 3. M.E. Rachmiel (Secretary), Not shown; J.E. Martin (Treasurer). Class of 1970: 4. A.J.

Brigade Honor Committee It is honor, they said, which makes us dif- ferent and the Brigade Honor Committee is the outgrowth of that belief. Times are changing. Honor is no longer a " popular " thing. But here at Annapolis the honor concept is an inseparable part of our life. This year ' s Honor Committee has continued to make our honor system a dynamic one. f B.C. Davey (Secretary-Recorder), D.A. Ehemann (Vice-Chairman), J.J. Scully (Chairman), T,E, Fahy (Brigade Liason), R,l. Lyies (Secretary-Recorder) Car Committee You want a GTO, you say? The smell of burning rubber is in your nostrils. The sound of four barrel carbs is in your ears . . . and nothing can stop you from plunging yourself into debt. The job of the Car Committee is to make that debt a little less, whether your choice be MG, Corvette or Falcon. The Car Committee price is probably right. Tromp on those new accelerators. Maybe now you can afford the gasoline. A, L, Normand (Chairman), P. D.

One of those might be the dance back at school which was just right. Maybe you didn ' t stay long. You probably headed for the drag house before 10 o ' clock but somehow the mood was right. You probably won ' t remem- ber the Brigade Hop Committee. It ' s just as well but without them, and Mrs. M., there wouldn ' t have been that perfect dance. kully iCIiiimiio P.C.

These men meet, escort and care for visitors to Annapolis and try to explain the oddities of our life. Public relations has always been an essential part of the Naval Academy program. The Re- ception Committee carries on the tradition of Navy hospitality. M.J. Bohoskey (Secretary), J.M. Greene, C.R. Carroll, K.S. Clancey (Co-Chairman), B.C. Davey, R. Byles, MM. McNeil, R.C.

Brigade Art and Printing Club Spirit is part of Annapolis and the Art and Printing Club makes it colorful. When Tecumseh dons war paint prior to the Army game, when posters fortell the fate of Navy ' s foes, and when the gridiron end zones are painted blue and gold, the BAPC has been in action. Whether it be JFK Stadium or Chicago, the world knows we ' re coming. Thanks to the Art and Printing Club. « « Top; T. N. Ledvma, D. R. Rainey, B- R- Orender, L. F. Terhar, J. J.

Sometimes the crest is the only material symbol of a relationship which may span a continent and involve months of separation. Sometimes our ring is the symbol of the arrogant " ring knocker " or an unexplain- able feeling of comradeship. For better or for worse, both mark us as Annapolis men. The engineering and logistics of the 1969 Ring and Crest were the responsibility of the Ring and Crest Committee. They have capably carried on one of our most hallowed traditions. W,W.

There is some- thing in those words. - even the most hardened and cynical of us will admit it and It is institu- tionalized in the Brigade Activities Committee, the Cheerleaders, the Cannoneers and the Goat- keepers. We ' ve had our high points the Army pep rally, the Notre Dame game and the Pre-Army decorations — and our low points — the " Hemo- globin " cheer, but always the BAC, the Cheer- leaders, the Cannoneers and the Goatkeepers have been there. It might be " Cliffs " and " Ski " at a pep rally. It might be Richard Red or Craig Gillespie trying to hold a couple hundred pounds of ornery goat — or Hal Williams touching off a cannon after a big touchdown or Hugh Batten leading a whisper cheer in front of 4,000 mids screaming insanely because it ' s us against them and that ' s good enough reason for any midship- man. What is the " Spirit of the Brigade. " It ' s hard to say but drop around before the Army game and you ' ll know it ' s there. i B.A.C. Officers: J. A. Johnesee (Sports Information), E.G.

The Drum and Bugle Corps is a group that takes parading and music - seriously and the result is one of the finest marching and playing groups in the coun- try. Three times a day, in the Spring and Fall, the D and B serenades us into meals. Once a week, in the Spring and Fall, the D and B accompanies us to Worden Field. The Drum and Bugle Corps comes into its own glory, however, on those Saturday football games in the fall. It may not have a bubble machine but there aren ' t many college marching bands which get cheered by their own student body. Everybody likes a D and B parade. •I R.D. Clarke (Sub-Commander), J. P. Doolittle (Commander), and W.C. Rogers (CPO) provide necessary leadership for the Drum and Bugle Corps for the fall marching season. ■ Annapolis Management Forum The Annapolis Management Forum is a new organization at the Academy. Although it isn ' t the Dale Carnegie Institute or the Harvard Busi- ness School, it ' s existence underscores the importance of management in today ' s Navy. By sponsoring lectures and programs, the forum hopes to promote interest in management within the Brigade. General Motors watch out! The Annapolis Management Forum is here. AIAA Where are all the Aero majors? Probably in the Naval Academy Chapter of the AIAA (Amer- ican Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics) building a water-based, two-man gilder. At monthly meetings, banquets and field trips throughout the year the AIAA delves into the celestial field of Aerospace Engineering. The AIAA, in the tradition of our astronaut alumni, has its eyes on the stars. f R.J. Logan (Secretary), G.M. Prout (Chairman), D.A. Blank (Treasurer), P.H.

As a member of the As- sociation of College Honor Societies and an as- sociate of the American Association for the Ad- vancement of Science, the organization recog- nizes those midshipmen who have displayed ability in physics and seeks to promote interest in the field of physical sciences through lectures and programs. Forensic Society " Friends, Romans, Countrymen lend me your ears " , the Forensic Society is about to speak. They ' re not easy to find though. They might be at one of the thirty-four tournaments they attend each year or at an afternoon practice session on the fourth deck of Maury Hall or hosting sixty teams at the Naval Academy ' s Annual Invitational Debate Tournament. Wher- ever they are, they ' ll be busy and they ' ll have a lot to say. Coi ItlHi Combini SMdisfi, individui oifli frc G.D. Lattig (Vice-President), M.F. Boyer (Treasurer), C.P.

Combined Foreign Language Clubs It m ay sound like the tower of Babel but It ' s probably just a meeting of the Combined Foreign Language Clubs. The CFLD is a combination of the French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese and Russian Clubs. Throughout the year, each individual club sponsors banquets and field trips to embassies or cultural events. In March all the clubs stage the International Ball. At this classic event the CFLD invites girls from the different embassies in Washington — the girls all speak, (not surprisingly), foreign languages. The clubs help project a multilingual image of the Naval Academy. Combined Languages Club: 1. M. K. Johannsen (Presi- dent), 2. R. C. Hood (Vice-President). French Club: 2. R. C. Hood (President), 3.

It speaks a language characterized by " overkill " , " proliferation " , " polycenterism " , " heartland theories " and " inherent dichotomies. " Once you ' ve mastered these words, you ' ll be able to enjoy the series of lectures and banquets which the club sponsors. The FRC also sends delegates to foreign affairs conferences at other schools around the country. These diplomat warriors - represent the military viewpoint in foreign policy. NAFAC The Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Confer- ence IS an annual gathering of college students from across the country to discuss the problems of a specific geographic area. This year ' s topic is " The Indian Ocean Area " . Guest speakers address the delegates about specific problems but the heart of the conference is the round table discussions at which students, with the assistance of experts, debate particular problems.

These professionally-minded midshipman use their spare time during the afternoons or weekends to become proficient seamen. All is not work, however. Each year the squadron makes trips to Philadelphia, Baltimore and other ports where liberty goes and good times are plentiful. This years access to the yacht. Green Ray, added an element of class to its activities.

Protestant Choir, Catholic Chapel Choir, Antiphonal Choir Twice each Sunday, the still of the morning is broken by the beat of the drums and the martial strains of the band. The Brigade of Midshipman is marching to Chapel. First to arrive and last to leave are the choirs. The Brigade has three: The Catholic Chapel Choir, the Protestant Chapel Choir, and the An- tiphonal Choir. The Catholics sing at early Mass each Sunday morning; the Protestants and the " Antiphs " sing at the 1 100 service. A choir doesn ' t just happen. It must be guided toward harmony and discipline. Such guidance is the realm of Prof. Gilly and Prof. McCuen. Prof. Gilly handles the Protestant and Antiphonal. Prof. McCuen directs the Catholic Chapel Choir. Some of us sleep in Chapel, some of us check out the drags, some of us even look into our- selves. Whatever our pastime the choirs help create an hour of contemplation for all of us. i mwi ;ii iiIi ' Ii ' Ij ' L«i -•• -W " -I . _ J =A ! -=K i9WTi Catholic Chapel Choir officers: V.

Provocative programs which investigate Christian faith in the last sixties in- terest non-catholics as well as Catholics. The club also sponsors a retreat to Manressa each year.

Big Brothers is bigger than the Naval Acad- emy. It extends across the nation and its single most important idea is that every guy needs a big brother. The organization screens applicants care- fully and pairs up the brothers. What do brothers do? They toss a football around. They ' ll watch a wrestling match or go to Muhlmeister ' s or sail a knockabout or just talk; nothing particularly spectacular. Why does a guy do it? It could be there ' s a quiet satisfaction in being a Big Brother. It might be kind of nice to be needed somewhere. It might be rewarding to do something outside those gray walls. There ' s only one way to find out. Try It. J.W, Moffit demonstrates proper ball handling techniques to Little Brother Kelly Dunning. NA-10 You ' ve heard them at Wednesday evening meal, at the Musical Club Show and probably at a couple of dances. They call themselves the NA - 10 and their sound is big dance-band jazz. The NA - 10 isn ' t limited to an Academy audience. In December, after the Messiah, the band travels to Hood College. The NA-10 proves that the big band still lives on. D.E. Burton (President), D.O. Rose (Director), and J.B. IVlcllvane (Business Manager) allow the NA-10 to " take ten " at the foot of the Mexican Monument. I Midshipman ' s Concert Band Annapolis enjoys a full dimension band in the Midshipmen ' s Concert Band. Whether the music be Beethoven or the Beatles, the MCB delivers the depth, class and brass of the big band. This year the band played for several area girls ' col- leges, among them Hood and Penn Hall. The ' 68- ' 69 Concert Band is bigger and better than ever. .1 ' ' 81 m T.L. Bingman (Director) leads the Concert Band in a practice session. ■ ISwfW R. Russel (President) and D. Townsend (Vice Presidentl lead the Naval Academy Glee Club. Many Americans know the Naval Academy by only two of its institutions. One Is the football team and the other is the U.S.N.A. Glee Club. There ' s something about those closely cropped heads, gold buttons and " Anchors Away " . People like it and the Academy public relations- men know it, so the Glee Club is probably on the road more than any other Annapolis group. They sing in Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and the midwest. They ' ve played in Madison Square Garden, on the Mike Douglas Show, and, na- turally, they ' ve hit the girls ' school circuit. Though there be riots in the streets and demon- strations on the campuses, listen America! The United States Naval Academy Glee Club sings on.

Morris (Financial manager), R.J. Amund- son (Stage manager), G.F. Quillman (Production head). Not shown: P. Rieth (Make-up gang head). Masqueraders Sometimes an organization catches fire. The incendiary ingredients cannot be assembled, they just have to happen— the right membership, the right leadership, the right advisor, the right at mosphere. This year ' s Masqueraders and their associated Stage, Property and Make-up and Juice Gangs have been such an organization. The Masqueraders haven ' t stopped moving. In the fall, they produced " A Time for Mourning, " the Brigade Honor play. Using the stage as its medium, the group dramatized a problem close to the lives of all of us. " The Gamblers " played on weekends through- out the fall. Then, in early February, " Becket " opened to the acclaim of everybody. The play was an ambitious production, far beyond the drawing room comidies which once characterized Naval Academy theatre. Brillant performances, astute directions, and tasteful staging charac- terized the play. For most organizations, three successful pro- ductions would be enough, but the Masqueraders came on with more. In April, " A Sleep of Pris- oners " was staged in the Chapel and during June Week " A Visit to a Small Planet " ran for a week. Each play was an all Masquerader production from tickets to advertising. Much of the credit for the " new " Masque- raders must go to Major Albans, the group ad- visor. His enthusiasm for new ideas and willing- ness to commit himself to them have removed the upper bound from the organization ' s imagi- nation. Officers like Greg Quillinan have turned imagination into production. Performers like Ron Hood have made productions artful perfor- mances. Are all Masqueraders strange? Well, perhaps they are. They see the world a little differently than the rest of us. Does drama have a place in a military institution? Yes— it entertains us and, more importantly, it helps us see the world-the part of it presented on the stage— a little more clearly. Juice Gang officers: G.L. Skirm (Supply), dent), EC.

Midshipman Jazz Bands The rumble of a bass guitar, the stomp of a drum, the flash of the strobe— San Francisco? No, Annapolis. They ' re groovin ' down at the Academy. Over the last few years, the Brigade has under- gone a music explosion. Dance bands are every- where and a weekend doesn ' t pass without psychedelic sounds echoing in Smoke Hall. The first among greats are the Spiffies. As senior member of the music set, the group not only plays at Academy dances but also at local girls ' schools. This year, as in the past, they set the Sheraton on fire at the post-Army informal. The JG ' s aren ' t exactly small time. Motown soul is their specialty and they reach almost everybody. At the Army Pep Rally in November, the group had the whole Brigade foot-stompin ' . The Admiralty and the Outriggers round out the Brigade music makers. Whether it ' s a Sunday stag hop or a Saturday night informal these bands have the latest vibrations. Annapolis may be steeped in the past but it has the sounds of today. Smoke Hall will never be the same. r Outriggers: J F Porter. R.C. Leib, A.R. Kraft, R.F, Zibka, T.A. Holden, b The Admiralty: D.S- Barrett, P.B. Long, J.J. Cote, R.V. Digiacomo, J.L. Sheets, J.R.

Popular Music Concert Committee If you like popular music, you probably like the popular music concerts and so you must like the Popular Music Concert Committee. The sounds of music were at Annapolis in 68-69. Two concerts in the fall, Army-Navy Winter Sports weekend, a weekend in April, and June Week echoed with music ranging from the Lettermen to the Happenings. Annapolis was alive with music thanks to the Pop Music Committee. D.G. Vetter (Chairman), T,B. Brace (Business Manager), M.J. Hallahan (Secretary). OH, toy ISioelary-T WRNV WRNV is the Brigade ' s radio voice. In addi- tion to information, music, and sports the WRNV staff provides electronic equipment and music for other Brigade activities. These disc jockies aren ' t glued behind their desks. You ' ll find them at record hops, pep rallies or the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System convention. It ' s rough getting up in the morning but WRNV makes it a little easier. M.J. Watson (Business Manager), T.E, Halwachs (Station Manager), R.W. Campbell (Program Director), W.J. Mackenson (Chief Engineer). Amatuer Radio Club In spite of a drastically cut budget, the Ama- tuer Radio Club has been able to keep on the airwaves. The club p-rovides short wave commun- ication links around the world for ships ' com- panies as well as the members of the Brigade. Foreign national middies frequently take advan- tage of the club ' s equipment to call home. Mem- bers also participate in the Military Amateur Radio Service and the Annual Sweepsteaks Con- test; the latter involves challenges with West Point. Gun Club Perhaps it is the call of the hunt or man ' s fascination with weafxjnry. Whatever it is, the Gun Club has it. The club provides opportunities for midshipmen to pursue interests in the use, operation and repair of firearms, setting aside particular spaces for work and stowage. Field trips, ranging from Quantico to the Smithsonian Institute are part of the gunner ' s adgenda. W.J. Braunstein (Secretary). W.H Steussy (Executive Officer), S.A. l-ludock (Vice-President). R.W.

There will still be the man, however, who prefers wind and sail when he puts to sea. The Naval Academy Sailing Squadron consists of this type of man. Men without good boats wouldn ' t sail very far or win many races; and the NASS has good boats. With its fleet of twelve Luders yawls, three ocean racers, and smaller craft, it represents a formida- ble challenge in racing circles. The MacMillan and Kennedy Cups in the fall and spring are races against collegiate yawl teams using NASS Luders. The three ocean racers. Jubilee III, Maradea, and Severn Star have become respected names in the Bay and on the east coast from Bermuda to Newport. Whether they sail 73 foot yawls or nineteen foot Flying Dutchmen, the members of the NASS can relive the days of wooden ships and iron men.

Our frustrations, our hopes and our fears are all part of it. How can an outsider really appreciate a good " Dear John " ? We can because we know it happens and we ' re afraid we might be next. When " Salty Sam " records the latest plebe blunder we laugh because it probably happened to us. And no matter how censored an article might be, if we don ' t like something or some- body, the intent gets through. This doesn ' t mean that The Log is meaningless to our families, friends and girls. It remains, however, our magazine. To understand it, you ' ve got to be part of us. 1 Reef Points Every time a plebe mutters about a " surly serf from old Serbia " he can thank the Reef Points staff for this contribution to his education.

The Lucky Bag is also a book — a collection of memories — a history of the Brigade of Midshipmen. This is where we tell it as we saw it. Our trials and triumphs, our loud and quiet moments are all recorded here. People make the Lucky Bag. Gary Goodmundson, " Rach " , Jim Sandberg, and the section heads argue, cajole, and threaten each other until finally negatives become photographs and photographs and copy become pages in a book.

V it i mm i $ Desire, Determination, Expectation Begin Year Navy opened its 1968 season behind Coach Bill Elias and Captain Mike Clark on a rough note, as the Nittany Lions of Penn State demon- strated that their pre-season ranking in the top ten was not an over estimation, crushing the Blue 31-6. It was youngster quarterback Mike Mc- Nallen ' s first varsity encounter, and Penn State capitalized on his inexperience to nab five interceptions. Four Navy fumbles also aided their cause, as the Navy offense could not settle in the right groove. The defense was impressive, permit- ting only one sustained drive all day, but the Lions had too many scoring opportunities to be stopped as a result of Navy turnovers. On a bright note, Mike Clark ' s seven pass receptions enabled him to climb past Joe Bellino and Jim Stewart to sixth place on Navy ' s all time pass receiving list. Boston College was able to combine a rugged defensive effort with several long gainers on the ground and in the air to put the Navy Home- coming game in the loss column. Navy ' s hopes were high following Boston College ' s initial score as Mike McNailen marched the Blue into BC ' s territory for the knotting score with Tim Cocozza kicking the point after the touchdown. This was the last Navy score until late in the final period, when Jeri Balsly crashed across for his second touchdown of the afternoon. Boston College halfback Dave Bennett surprised the defense, scoring 3 touchdowns and grinding out 156 yards in 17 carries. A field goal by Tim Cocozza gave Navy a 3-0 first quarter lead, but the Wolverines of Michi- gan, led by George Hoey ' s 130 yards gained on two punt returns and two interceptions, roared back to capture the contest. The Navy offense displayed definite signs of improvement, as Mike Continued Season 2-8-0 Penn State 31 Navy 31 Boston College 49 Navy 15 Michigan 32 Navy 9 Air Force 26 Navy 20 Pittsburgh 16 Navy 17 Virginia 24 Navy Notre Dame 45 Navy 14 Georgia Tech 15 Navy 35 Syracuse 44 Navy 6 Army 21 Navy 14 w i immr - ia Spirit and Pride In McNallen passed for 247 yards (including a 54 yard strike to Karl Schwelm) of a 339 yard total output. But Navy was able to muster only a field goal out of three intrusions inside the Michigan 15 yard line until late in the fourth quarter when Mike McNallen rifled a pass to Schwelm to score six points. A steadily improving Navy team fought the Cadets of Air Force touchdown for touchdown, but time ran out with the Midshipmen driving on the Air Force 40 yard line. The Zoomies posted a 7-6 half time deficit, then utilized an intercep- tion and a 35 yard TD jaunt to pull ahead. A key fumble recovery by Jeff Krstich, a 60 yard effort by Mike Lettieri on a kickoff return, and a 42 yard pass play with Bill Newton receiving put Navy back in the game, but Air Force ground out a time-consuming TD drive late in the game to provide the margin of victory. A come from behind effort led by halfback Dan Pike and capped by a 25 yard field goal by Tim Cocozza made the difference as Navy posted its first victory of the season over Pittsburgh. Jeri Balsly plunged for the initial score, but quarter- mmm§m TD [ SB«- -T ' V S " )ri nde Their Struggle . . . back Dave Havern passed the Panthers to subse- quent touchdowns to make the score 16-6 at the opening of the fourth quarter. The Navy defense tightened its grip and set the stage for an 80 yard TD drive culminated by a 13 yard scoring pitch to Tom Daley. Moments later, Navy gained possession of the ball for the l ast time after the defense forced a Pitt safety. In an exciting ending, the defense blocked a Pitt field goal attempt from the 5 yard line with only seconds remaining to win the game. Virginia engineered the first Navy loss to the Cavaliers since 1909, a resounding 24-0 defeat, as they capitalized on two key pass interceptions and a ten yard punt to take control of the game in which the contestants were otherwise evenly matched. Most of Navy ' s 240 yards of total offense were wasted around midfield, and after falling behind, McNallen was forced to go to the air repeatedly but without success in a 25 mph wind to try to move the sluggish offense. The Irish of Notre Dame could only manage a 10 point advantage over Navy at the close of the first half, but the last two quarters saw them Continued WH Challenge From Strong Opposition . . . utilize their size and weight advantage to post a 45-14 triumph. McNallen again took to the air almost exclusively against a monstrous Irish line, and Bill Newton hauled in 9 completions to play a key role in the two successful Navy TD drives. Dar. Pike capped the first with a 44 yard gallop to the vjnd zone, and Mike Clark took two quick passes over the center for a TD and the 2 point conversion to end the second. Bob Gladieux led an Irish rushing attack which totaled 337 yards, and Hanratty, Seymour, and company performed in the usual Notre Dame fashion. Entering the game a two touchdown under- dog, the Big Blue came through with a coordi- nated effort that gave the Yellow Jackets of Georgia Tech a 35-15 sting. The defense was superb, and the Engineers were able to score only in the last moments of the game. The Navy Continued m w » !wi ' :: ' ;r Mf-.

McNallen slipped in for one of the five touchdowns, and flipped to Karl Schwelm for another. Mike Lettieri scored the last Navy touchdown of the day on an amazing 79 yard punt return. Tim Cocozza kicked five out of five PAT ' S. Syracuse proved to be tough for the Big Blue as their defense checked every scoring attempt of Navy until late in the contest while they tallied at least a touchdown in each of the four periods. I T W m " ' ■ ■ . ■ 1 ■ m t 1 For the third consecutive year Navy entered the Army-Navy game in an underdog role; the Cadets 6-3 record a startling contrast to the Big Blue ' s 2-7 won lost mark. Despite this, and the predictions of the press " experts, " the spirit of the Brigade was at a high point. The game was characteristic of Army-Navy clashes, in that neither team was able to dominate the game. Chuck Jarvis proved to be the big man for the Cadets with three touchdowns and 88 yards in 21 carries, but Dan Pike led all rushers with 107 yards gained in 29 carries, and one touchdown. Army scored twice near the end of the first period, but Navy whittled the lead to seven points when, after a fumble recovery by Mike Clark on the Cadets 33 yard line, Dan Pike capped a series of short gains, including a slashing 21 yard run up the middle, with a score from the one yard line. Tim Cocozza converted. There was no more scoring until late in the third period, when Mike Lettieri forced cadet quarterback Steve Lindell to throw a hurried pass that Tom Laforce picked off and returned 36 yards for Navy ' s last touchdown of the game. Army was not to be denied, however, and substitute quar- terback Jim O ' Toole, hit Joe Albano to produce a 62 yard gain and set up the winning touch- down. ■B Soccer Team Picture, First Row: M.

The booters were quickly brought to the realization that this was going to be no easy task, as NYU beat Navy 1-0 in the season ' s opener. Recovering from their disappointing start the team ripped off four straight wins, culminating in an impressive 3-1 victory over the highly rated Penn State. Navy then suffered its second and last loss of the season. After a bruising first half with Maryland holding a 1-0 lead, Navy fought back to put the score at one apiece by the end of regulation play. In the over time that followed Maryland, who later became the NCAA co-champion, pulled out the contest 2-1. Hoping for a bid to the NCAA tournament. Navy won the next three games. The bid never came, and bitterly disappointed Coach Warner could only take token pleasure from the 7-0 defeat handed to Georgetown by the vengeful booters. The Army game was typical of the last four years of Army-Navy soccer competition. Taking a first quarter lead on a head shot by Glen Reid, Navy held the Black Knights scoreless until the final quarter when they scored on a free kick. In the two overtimes that followed, now almost a tradition, the game ended in a frustrating 1-1 tie. The season ' s close brought recognition to several members of the Navy squad. All-Ameri- can honors came to Casey Bahr and Dick Bartlett while the All-South team included Tamburini, Bahr, and Bartlett.

The breakaway running of Esmond IVlarks and Mike IVlorrel gave the varsity " lightweights " a decisive edge over Rutgers as Navy posted a 27-3 victory in the opener. The following week, hard, steady rains halted the fast ground attack of the " mighty mites " as they splashed against Prince- ton to a 0-0 tie. The offense was slow in drying out from the week before but impressive defen- sive play, highlighted by Dave Lilly, Bob Cowin and Jack Lahren, held Pennsylvania to a 6-0 lead going into the fourth quarter. Staging a spirited comeback. Navy scored three touchdowns while Pennsylvania was unable to crack the defense as time ran out. Cornell startled the Navy team with their attempt to redeem the 7-0 loss of the previous season. Strong running by both teams could not break the tie and the game ended 7-7. The next week, the Little Blue traveled to West Point to challenge the previously unbeaten, unscored upon Cadet team. However, hopes were quickly dimmed as the halftime score was 17-0 in favor of Army. The passing of Steve Becker to ends Bob Conger and John Fedor provided an explosive second-half comeback attempt by Navy. A key interception by West Point halted the spirited offensive move and the game ended in favor of Army, 17-14. The following week- end Columbia was easily defeated by Navy, 21-0. i 4 M k Cross Country Season 3 — 5 William and Mary 17 Navy 38 St. John ' s 21 Navy 36 New York University 32 Navy 23 Upsala 50 Navy 15 Penn State 15 Navy 48 Maryland 18 Navy 42 Georgetown 16 Navy 44 Heptagonals at N.Y.U. 6th Place l-C-4-A ' satN.Y.U. 18th Place Army 29 Navy 26 vi 5, Cross Country: A Building Year The 1968 season was a period of rebuilding for the Navy Cross Country Team. With only two returning lettermen— Dick Martin and Captain Steve Hanvey— new coach Al Cantello was hope- ful for a successful season, though he did not underrate the stepped-up connpetition in the East and throughout the Nation. The young and inexperienced team displayed marked improve- ment as the season progressed, with youngsters Vernon Graham and Bill Long rapidly adjusting to the varsity distance. Yet, in spite of the pace setting of Steve Hanvey and Ross Dunham, the team was only able to post two victories, defeating N.Y.U. and Upsala. In the meet against Upsala, Ross Dunham marked the best time of the season, completing the course in 25 minutes and 43.9 seconds. In the Heptagonals and IC4A Championships Navy finished in the second division, one place behind Army in each meet. However, the stage was set for the highlight of the season. On the 23rd of November, the harriers met the Black Knights in a dual meet at West Point. Army was a great favorite with a 6-2 dual meet record, yet was unable to capture the event from the now-strong Navy team. With underclassmen Mike Frick, Jan Fladeboe and Skip Wilkeln giving impetus to the determined squad, the harriers upset the Cadets in the closest meet in the past eight years of the series, 26-29.

Basketball After winning their first three games at home, Navy cagers found the going a bit rougher throughout the rest of the season. The final mark of 7-14 fell short of the ' 67- ' 68 record of 9-11, but the season surprised many fans considering the heavy graduation from the class of ' 68. This year ' s four top scorers outdistanced the previous year ' s stars in total points as well as improving their own individual records. Captain John Tolmie and Chuck Provini were two ' 69er ' swho shared the top spots with Segundo Scott Sempko and Youngster Jack Conrad. John Tolmie, captain of the ' 68- ' 69 ballclub wrapped up his career at Navy with a three-year record of 1239 points, 464 this season, to be the third Navy eager ever to have been top scorer for each of his three years of Varsity action.

Many of the losses were by narrow margins, including a 57-56 heart- breaking loss to Harvard. The dual meet season ended on a sour note with a hard fought loss to Army. However, in the Eastern Collegiate Championships, Navy scored a major upset by finishing third, ahead of such swimming powers as Dartmouth, Harvard, and Army. Frank Gunkelman lowered the Academy backstroke record on several occasions as did newcomers Steve Cheney (The Beast) in both breaststroke events and the 1000 free and Dave Pearl (Fat Boy) in both butterfly events. Both the medley and freestyle relays broke Academy records, and the medley relay will return in tact next year. Other top performers this year were; Stu Powrie, Cap Parlier, Bo Rose, Bill Kemp (Chetah), John Gilchrist, and Gordy Jones. The graduation of Bill Polrier, Chris Johnson, Bob Rachor, Hugh Batten and Mike Swanson will leave some holes, but with eight returning lettermen and an undefeated plebe team waiting to step in.

In 1966 the Navy grapplers lost only one duel meet, and that was to a strong Maryland team that two Navy plebe teams wrestling in the Plebe Invitational Tournament later significantly outpointed to culminate a formidable freshmen wrestling record. During 1967 the wrestling team again lost only a single duel meet, this time to Lehigh University. The team placed second that year in the EIWA Tournament and ninth in the NCAA Tournament. Wrestling buffs across the country were beginning to talk about Navy. 1968 witnessed one of Navy ' s all-time great wrestling teams. The Navy team went undefeated in duel meets, brought home the first EIWA Championship since 1947, and went on to finish an impressive fifth place in the NCAA Tournament. 1969 brought Navy another undefeated season and a second Eastern Intercollegiate Championship with five individual title winners, a feat not accomplished by Navy since 1943. Navy sent its first potential NCAA championship team to BYU in Provo, Utah, to compete for national honors, but misfortune traveled with the team and the prize remains uncaptured for another Navy team to attain. The graduating seniors leave behind a great coach and a great team. To those who have had the opportunity to wrestle for Navy it is a great personal treasure to leave behind, but still a greater treasure they take with them in experience and in memory. We wish all the successive Navy teams even greater accomplishments and better times than we have seen. And, BEAT ARMY . . . AGAIN ' Indoor Track The indoor track team started the season way back in September. While the distance runners were working for the cross country team, the rest of the men hoping to represent Navy indoors was participating with the out-of-season track team. Concentration was on distance running. Distance for weight throwers, shot putters, pole vaulters and sprinters is particularly a tough diet, but they worked the 5 miles daily and it paid off during the early season. The team won its first meet December 14th scoring 65 points over NYU ' s 40 and Fordham ' s 32. Outstanding performances for Navy came when Bob Tol hurst vaulted 15 feet for the first time in his career, Steve Potts opened with 59 ' 7 " in the 35 W.T. and Bob Atwell jumped 23% inches in the long jump. After the Christmas break the fireworks really got started. Maryland came to Annapolis 5 days after we got back. Navy had some outstanding efforts but fell before the Terps. The 18th of January the team settled down and went against Penn and got on the winning side again. Steve Hanvey won the mile, coming from far behind, m 4:132 and Jon Fladeboe won the 2 mile m 9:23.5. asr m rr n 1: a C. n = D First Row (left to right): Coach Gerdes, Richard Walsh, Charles Carrol, Vernon Graham, George Dunham, Michael Frick, Robert Edmond, Team Captain Steve Potts, Reed Clark, Paul Felix, Ted Rogers, Oliver Boucher, James Newton.

Bob Tolhurst in the pole vault and Monty Felix in the 600. These 2 winners helped Navy to a 4th place finish in the 10 school event. Navy came in second behind Army in their annual dual meet. Army was superb and won handily. In the IC4A Championships Navy took a limited number of men but found Steve Potts throwing 60 ' 6% " for 2nd in the 35 and Bob Tolhurst vaulting 15 ' 0 " for 5th place. Representatives in the National Collegiate Championships at Detroit did well. Steve Potts again was 2nd in a major meet throwing his best of the season 60 ' 9 " and Doug Backes 5th in 56th eVa " . This second place finish rewarded indoor track captain Steve Potts with All-American Selection to the Indoor Track Team. The motto for the 68-69 indoor track team was " Pride.

The new coach has his work cut out for him in replacing his ' 69er ' s Milchanowski, Gallagher, Wanner, Eby, Eickenberry, Docton and Schaefer.

Brigade Boxing The name of the game is guts, self-sacrifice and the will-to-win. We call it Brigade Boxing. Out of the seven weight divisions ranging from 127 pounds to heavies. Head Coach Emerson Smith had five of last year ' s champions among the ranks of returning boxers. Heading the list was Firstie Craig Gallaspie, three time winner of the light heavyweight crown and Spike Webb Award. Joining Craig were Ray Golez — 127= , Steve Newberger — 145 , Craig Silverthrone — 165-» and footballer Tom Cleverdon — Heavyweight. The team trained vigorously day in and day out for three months. Starting with the basic fundamentals and advancing through the more complex phases of the game. Coach Smith prepared the 75 men, representing all four classes for the final eliminations and the right to go to the semi-finals. The semi-finals was a night of upsets; heavily favored Craig Gillaspie was dethroned by Tom Flaherty; Randy Larkin was eliminated by Bruce Bancroft, and Plebe Earl Smith handled a favorite in Mike Compton. The finals seemed to have been a toss up in every match. Golez, Newberger, Silverthorne and Cleverdon, managed to retain their titles. Others winning were Corky Pick — 155= and two Plebes Earl Smith - 135= and Ken Schaub - 175= Coach Smith is looking forward to the 69-70 boxing season as 6 of the 7 champions will be back.

Navy 4 Army li f Squash The 68-69 squash season proved to be a year of many close misses for the team. With consistent wins from Bob Cowin, Charlie Wood, and Greg Stiles, the team finished with an 8-4 record. In the Nationals, Navy ' s five man team beat Mexico 5-0 before losing to Ontario 4-1. The Army match proved to be the biggest disappointment for the team when it lost 4-5. The highlight of the season came in the Intercollegiates, where one of Navy ' s greatest athletes. Bob Cowin, placed third, thus gaining All-American honors. Bob was the stalwart of the team, finishing at the number one position with a 10-2 record. After the experienced gained from this year. Coach Potter is looking towards next year for a victory over Army. With veterans. Bob Custer, Greg Stiles, Charlie Wood, Stu McFarland, and Harold Mashbum returning, the team should have a good year. m m :s irviJrjantsmwiiA- Rifle Coach Ed Trotter, in his third year as varsity coach, had his second National Championship in three years. The final results are not yet compiled but with two new National Collegiate records in both conventional and international type shooting, the Navy team looks like the winner. The whole season was a build-up to two real climaxes, the first being a long awaited win over a dangerous Army team that as usual outdid themselves but not well enough. It was the first Navy victory in five years. Bill Stockho managed to take the Army range record that day with a 291. One week later, the spirits still high from the win over Army, the team swept through the National Sectionals taking everything in sight. With a completed season record of 8-1, the little publicized Navy Rifle team remains higher in the win column that almost all the other sports at Navy. The outstanding contributors to this year ' s team, which had more depth than any in a long time, included Bill Stockho, Tom Wilkes, Gary Marvin, Frank Stenstrom, Steve Hudock, Ralph Burnette, Bob Fender, Lonnie Emch, Cat Ballew and Gabe Hernandez. Next year there will be five less 69 ' ers, but a good plebe team, with enough potential to erase the loss of this year ' s first class, should keep the records at Navy for a few years to come.

Pistol After a disappointing 5-4 season last year, the 68-69 pistol team came close to an undefeated season with an 8-1 record. Navy ' s only loss came at the hands of a very strong Army team which they had already beaten in the National Sectional matches. Aside from the Army match. Nav y ' s only close contest was a 23 point victory over MIT. Victory margins in other matches were measured in hundreds of points. Leading shooters on the squad were Captain Nat Pace, Hugh O ' Neill and Mike Malone, first class; Tom Noonan and Carl Smith, second class; and youngsters Bob Mayes and Ron DeLoof. O ' Neill, Pace, Noonan and Mayes all recorded first place finishes during the season. The Navy team did well in the National Rankings.

Bob Mayes made first team All-American while Hugh O ' Neill, Nat Pace, and Tom Noonan were selected for the second team. Those members of the Class of 1969 on the pistol team finished out their shooting careers at Navy with only five losses in four years of competition. Lieutenant Art Sievers, Coach of the team for the past four years, will be retiring at the end of the season. His expert coaching enabled the midshipmen to win a majority of their matches while his affable personality made the " Sea Daddy " many instant friends and endeared him to his shooters and associates.

One of the mainstays of an overall successful winter sports season for the Blue Gold, our fencers scored an impressive victory over the long-absent Black Knights to further enhance their sparkling rec- ord. In addition to the intercollegiate Fencing As- sociation team title and a 4th place in NCAA team standings, Academy fencers gathered their fair share of individual honors. Bert Freeman was named to the First Team All-America list as Captain Jim Davidson made the Second Team. Davidson was also named Individual Epee Champ and received the G. L. Cointe Sportsmanship award at the Easterns. The NCAA Champion- ships saw the Senior Captain honored as Fencer of the Year (College Epee). Coach Andre Deladrier wound up his 12th season heading the Midshipmen with an overall record of 69 wins to 29 losses. 1969 ' s underclass strength gives him a lot to look forward to de- spite the loss of some outstanding First Class. " X i :f nft Spring Coaches. ' ii " Navy ' s outdoor track team found success hard to come by in 1969. The Midshipmen dropped all five of their dual meets although they came close in a 79-75 loss to St. John ' s and an 80-74 setback to William Mary. One outdoor record fell by the wayside. Sec- ond classman Bob Kirk was the man responsible with his pitch of 237 feet, 3 inches, in the javelin vs. William Mary. That effort shattered the old standard of 235 ' 1 ' 2 " by Dave Finch in 1967. Here are the top times and distances recorded by Navy thinclads in 1969: 100 - 9.8 sees, by J ohn Massie vs. William Mary; 220 - 21.7 sees, by Massie vs. William Mary; 440 — 49.2 sees, by Reed Clark vs. Army; 880 - 1 min., 51.9 sees, by Monty Felix vs. St. John ' s; 120 High Hurdles - 14.4 sees, by Bob Edmond vs. Army; 440 Intermediate Hurdles — 53.3 sees, by Don Miller vs. St. John ' s; Mile - 4 mins., 10.8 sees, by Steve Hanvey vs. Maryland; Two-Mile — 9 mins., 13.7 sees., by Jan Fladeboe vs. St. John ' s; Mile Relay - 3 mins., 13.3 sees, by Massie, Clark, Felix, and OIlie Boucher at the Penn Relays; 440 Relay - 41.9 sees, by Steve Carro, Doug Murphy, Jim Paddock, and Paul Hammock vs. Army.

Navy ' s 1969 lacrosse team startled the stick world by making a spirited run for the National crown, an ambition thwarted only by the Midshipmen ' s 14-4 loss to Army in the finale at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Even that setback, however, could not completely dull the luster of Navy ' s 1969 la- crosse season. The most satisfying of the ten victories was certainly a 9-6 upset of defending National titlist Johns Hopkins on the Jays ' home field. Hopkins was sailing easily toward a repeat championship and ha d things completely its own way in the first eight games of the season. Before a Homecoming throng that overflowed Home- wood Field, the Midshipmen swarmed all over the heavily-favored Jays. Defenseman John Pad- gett completely throttled Hopkins ' three-time All-America Joe Cowan and midfielder Harry MacLaughlin registered four goals to trigger the Navy victory. Both Padgett and MacLaughlin were first team All-America picks on the post-season listing of the college game ' s best while goalie Len Supko and midfielder Chris Everett made the third team with Denny Yatras and Ed Tempesta attracting Honorable Mention. Captain Yatras was the scoring leader for Navy ' s balanced attack with 14 goals and 15 assists for 29 points. MacLaughlin led the Mid- shipmen in goals with 25 and added three assists for 28 points. Rounding out the top five were; rt( 1 CEEr Tom Caouette, 24 points (19 goals 5 assists); Ron Sadler, 22 points (8 goals 14 assists), and Tom Herbert, 17 points (7 goals 10 assists). The defense of Padgett, Bo Scharnus, and Greg Murphy combined with goalie Supko to hold the opposition to a paltry average of five goals per game. Supko was brilliant in the nets, turning aside 109 enemy shots. 1969 RECORD (10-3) Navy 22 Denison 2 Navy 8 Carlings L.

' I -i ,t ..wii ' ■4 1 % if ' ' Ml Baseball The heavy hitting of Denny Losh and Scott Semko and the pitching of youngster Pat Fletcher enabled the Navy baseball teann to finish with a winning season. Despite a rather disap- pointing 2-4-1 showing in the Eastern League, the Midshipmen wound up 10-9-1 overall and could have been considerably better but for four one-run losses. Losh, a second classman from Lorain, Ohio, became the first regular to hit .400 since Bob Dougal in 1963. Losh pounded out 17 hits in 41 trips for a final average of .415. He also provided one of the season ' s most dramatic moments by driving a George Washington offering over the right field screen with two mates aboard in the twelfth inning to beat the Colonials, 8-5. Coach Joe Duff ' s club got its power from Semko, who numbered 12 extra base hits among his 22 safe blows. The Whippany,N. J., slugger had two doubles, six triples, and four homers. He paced the Midshipmen in runs-batted-in with 17. Semko ' s triple total was good enough to rank him second nationally according to N.C.A.A. sta- tistics. In the finale against Army, Semko hit for the circuit with a single, double, triple, and home run. On the triple, he was thrown out at the plate on a disputed decision and a ground rule pre- vented the double from being still another homer. In addition to Losh in left and Semko at first, the rest of the regular lineup featured Tony Fortino (.158) at second, Dan Johnson (.212) at short, Mike Worley (.272) at third, Dave Proffitt iSk N 1969 RECORD (10-9-1) Navy 1 Viilanova 2 Navy 4 Navy 4 Southern Connecticut 1 Navy 14 Navy 3 Syracuse 2 Navy 14 Navy 7 Seton Hall 2 Navy 5 Navy Cornell 10 Navy 6 Navy 3 Penn 3 Navy 8 Navy 8 William Mary 17 Navy 1 Navy 2 Princeton 3 Navy 5 Navy 5 Baltimore Navy 4 Navy 8 West Chester 2 Navy 11 Yale Georgetown Towson State Maryland Brown George Washington N.Y.U.

Fletcher also topped the moundsmen in innings pitched (68) and strikeouts (31). Segundo Rick Graham (2-1 ) was the only other hurler to record more than one victory. Golf Under veteran coach Bob Williams, the golf team won eight of 1 1 starts for one of the better spring records. Navy ' s only losses were to Penn State (5-2), Maryland (18-3), and Army (5-4). In the Eastern Championships, the Midshipmen placed eighth with a stroke total of 809. Captain Eric Utegaard, who wound up his varsity career w ith an overall won-lost record of 22-9, captured eight victories as did teammates Marty Alford and Jim Walters. Some of the other individual records included: Gerry Guppy 7-4, Ray Waters 6-2, Carl Edmonds 5-3, Mike Aycock 3-3, Craig Williamson 4-6, and Jim Carney 0-1. 1969 RECORD (8-3) Navy 6 Villanova 1 Navy 5 Harvard 2 Navy 3 Maryland 18 Navy 7 Seton Hall Navy 5 Pennsylvania 2 Navy 5 Princeton 2 Navy 4 Georgetown 3 Navy 13% Virginia Th Navy 2 Penn State 5 Navy 7 Pittsburgh Navy 3 Army 4 Sailors keep Navy Tops in the Racing world . . .

A late season slump cost the Midshipmen six deci- sions in the final eight outings but the overall record of 1 1-6 was still the finest w on-lost mark since 1964. Top man for Coach Harvey Muller was Cap- tain Bob Cowin, the number one singles entry and one of the ranking players in the East. Cowin, an All-America in squash and a regular for the 150-pound football team, was selected to receive the N.A.A.A. Sword as the man in the graduating class considered to have " personally excelled in athletics during his years of varsity competition. " In singles, the combative Cowin put together a gaudy record of 14-3, losing only to the number ::v: « j -- X ■- ' - f i W w 208 one men from Penn, Harvard, and Princeton. Twelve of Cowin ' s 14 victories were achieved in straight sets. In doubles, Cowin teamed with Cut- ler Dawson to win in 10 of 13 outings. Bob Custer and George Galdorisi, who played four and five respectively, finished behind Cowin with identical records of 11-6. They were fol- lowed by Dawson and John Bunker, both at 10-7, and Clay Stiles, who won nine of 16 matches. The biggest victory of the year was Navy ' s 6-3 triumph over Yale, only the second ever over the Eli in a series that dates to 1920. Yale carried a string of 23 straight at Navy ' s expense into that May 2nd meeting on the varsity courts. The Midshipmen took the first five singles matches, two of them in straight sets, to make it look easy vs. the Eli. 1969 RECORD (11-6) Navy 5 Williams 4 Navy 5 Dartmouth 4 Navy 8 Syracuse 1 Navy 6 Brown Navy 8 Cornell 1 Navy 7 Columbia 2 Navy 9 William Mary Navy 5 Penn State 4 Navy 9 Swarthmore Navy 3 Pennsylvania 6 Navy 2 Maryland 7 Navy 6 Yale 3 Navy 1 Harvard 8 Navy 9 Georgetown Navy Princeton 9 Navy 3 George Washington 6 Navy 4 Army 5 PP •H- " 3K Tj ' r - f -L— - - " A W - f[ Crewing for the Blue and Gold The hopes that new head coach Carl Ullrich brought were slow in reviving Navy from last year ' s slunnp. In the early season, the varsity boat recorded losses to Princeton, Yale, and Penn and Harvard, beating only Syracuse in a se cond place finish to Cornell in the Goes Cup regatta. The JV ' s breezed through their schedule, winning every start, while the Plebes matched the varsity record. The only bright spot was winning the Norman G. Stagg trophy for overall finishes against Cornell and Syracuse. For the Eastern Sprints, the JV ' s were moved up to the Varsity spot, and placed 9th overall after losing a photo finish to gain the finals. The JV finished third overall, and the plebes, eleventh. Before the IRA ' s, Navy suffered an ominous loss to Wisconsin in all three races, but came back to qualify all three teams in the finals of the IRA regatta. Race day saw Navy run out of steam, as the Varsity, JV, and Plebes finished 6th, 5th, and 6th, respectively. Only the great improvement over last year and the promise of an upswing next year detracted from the disap- pointing conclusion of the ' 69 season. r. r- " ' - ' Intramurals AWARD WINNERS - ACADEMIC YEAR 1968 - 1969 Harvard Shield 5th Battalion Naval Academy Athletic Association Cup 25th Company Brigade Intramural Trophy Midshipman W.

Two years of colors in a row (and with all our " class unity " ) amazing, simply amazing! We had our stars — 9 at once . . . once. (Yeh, we had our moons too.) Twenty-five guys from almost everywhere — 5 grunts, 7 zoomies, 9 seadogs, 3 nukes ... 8 " N ' s " (5 of ' em black) and 8 June hubs. Each one now gone his way, glad to have done it, but even gladder to have it done. WINTER SET: CO CDR: R G. Arnold; SUB-CDR: G. W. Cairnes, CPO: C. F. Snyder, SPRING SET: CDR: B. L Lewis; SUB-CDR: R G. Arnold; CPO. G. T. Mascari. 1st COMPANY OFFICER LTT.S. Todd, USN GERALD JOHN ANDERSON, JR. Jer came to Navy from the University of Arizona where he was a member of Delta Upsiion fraternity. Jer enjoyed the good life and tried his best to make his four years the best possible. He w as never one to turn down a party in or out of the Hall. Staying out of trouble with the Executive Department became an art with him. Jer knew how to play hard and work hard. Attendmg Culver Military Academy before college gave him an insight into the requirements of military life. Being a natural athlete, he was able to make intramural sports successful. With Jer ' s gifted personality and willingness to work, he will be a great credit to the Naval Service. ROBERT GLENN ARNOLD " I had it a minute ago " Bob was the one man most responsible for bringing an academic (?) atmosphere to the training tables. He earned recognition early as the company genius, star third base- man, library regular, number one subsidizer of the company doughnut mess, and as the only man in the company who never learned how to make his pad. He had a tremendous enthusiasm for everything he did, and spread this same interest among his class- mates, so much so that " Arnie ' s Army " became the biggest rooting section at the Navy baseball games, Bob ' s perseverance, hard work, friendly nature, and dissatisfaction for anything less than excellence will insure him of success in what ever career he follows. BRIAN JAMES BARRY B. J. never let the fact that he was of Irish ancestry impede him in becoming one of the outstanding members of the class. He established himself early as one of the best-liked and most re- spected men in the company, and as the front-runner in the class sleeping contest, a position which he never relinquished. He had a friendly personality and academic aversion which always made his room a pleasant stop during study hour. B. J. ' s good nature, all-around competence, and take-charge personality helped make him the company " high striper. " His ability, determination, quick wit, and friendly smile will insure his success in his career in the Navy as well as in other future endeavors. JOHN EDWARD BISHOP A native of Troy, New York, " Jeb " , as he is known to those of us who know him well, entered the Academy with a professional interest and the desire to become, of all things, a Naval Officer. Plebe Year found Jeb doing numerous interesting projects design- ed to make his ' freshman ' year exciting. Among these interests were sailing, jewelry design, and new methods of ' calling chow. ' Despite his early desire to get things done in a hurry, Jeb settled down quite solidly in his upperclass years. Even though he ex- celled in the technical subjects known affectionately as ' Bull ' , Jeb ' s deep professional interest will surely mold him into a very dedicated, and successful Naval Officer, I DWIGHT KEITH BOHM Dwight came to the Academy from Seattle, Washington or what he humbly referred to as " God ' s country. " Known to those around him as " Boomer, " Dwight maintained his sense of humor while tackling the rigors of Academy life. He was one of those rare ones who somehow managed to keep his grades up and still have a good time on weekends. Dwight spent several years working with Reef Points. In his leisure time you could find Dwight racing down some frozen slopes, strumming his banjo, or just dreaming about his two favorites, girls and sports cars. Dwight ' s active interest in the Navy, combined with his fine personal qualities, are sure to enhance whichever branch of the service he chooses to enter. GEORGE WILSON CAIRNES, III " Old Man " George was the company ' s contribution to the swimming team, antiphonal choir, scuba club, and Academy chapter of the Golden Ager ' s. Though sometimes known for a scholastic disinclination, he always managed to stay at least a step ahead of the academic department. George was one of the most thoroughly enjoyable persons in the class. He had an easy going attitude, effervescent personality, and a tremendous amount of competence, all of which helped make him one of the best liked and most able men in the company. His cheery laugh will long echo in the halls of Mother " B " and in the memories of his classmates. 234 h WILLIAM CHRISTIAN CONKLE Bill came to Navy from Toledo, Ohio by way of Ohio State where he spent a year before he became a plebe. Bill was always known for his quest of the good deal and this is perhaps what led him to the Management Department where he spent many happy hours learning to do what he likes best. His strong interest in his studies and his career undoubtedly explains his excellence in academics and professional knowledge. Bill was a member of the Catholic Choir as well as being very athletic, with participation in plebe and J.V. crew teams, basketball and gymnastics. Bill ' s constant search for professional excellence and proficiency suggest the qualities which will certainly moke him a fine officer. TERRENCE MICHAEL DENIGHT A native Floridian, Terry came from Coral Gables High School where he was an all-around athlete. " Cotton " seemed to fit well into " Boat School " life and after a couple of tries at 150 football, he found his home in the weight room where he avidly participates in Batt weightlifting. Never one to worry about academics, this blonde beach boy would rather spend his time on the beach than anywhere else. His confident and easy-going nature prompted him to push the proverbial " coast button " after two years of academic excellence. Quite a friendly guy with the Flo rida sun-power behind him, Terry will assure himself success in what ever branch of the Navy he chooses to follow. JAMES EUGENE GASS, JR. Jimmy arrived on the banks of the Severn with valedictory credentials, a study body and three class presidencies, and a multitude of other honors. Sailing through as a frosh, practically unscathed, " The Gasser " became well known as the plebe with the concave chin. Working diligently at every task, Jimbo attained the Superintendent ' s List regularly, finally pinning on stars second class year. Those in search, classmates needing the gouge or young chargers with problem shoes, knew Jim ' s helping hand well. Gasser worked as hard on the athletic field, whether managing the 150 ' s, hitting with the company lightweights, or rapping out softballs. Jim goes to the fleet ready to serve, and they ' ll both be better for his being there. MICHAEL THOMAS HALLETT Mike came to Navy, born on the crest of a wave and rocked in the cradle of the deep, a navy junior having lived all over the country. It must have been his broad background that gave him his remarkable insight into nearly every problem he ever encountered. Never one to step back, the vanquished, from any battle with the academic departments, Mike put on his stars once and never took them off (except for the press shop). Hardly one to limit himself, Mike applied himself as enthusiastically in a number of company sports, particularly basketball. Being professionally oriented, Mike will no doubt take to the fleet the mature confidence and deter- mination to excel that characterized his every move at USNA. I b " » fV MICHAEL PAUL HARTER Mike came to the quiet shores of the Severn from a gay and carefree life in sunny Oakland, California. When not energi ing himself in the blue trampoline he could be found at the rifle range where, due to his fine marksmanship, he earned the title of " Jim Bowie. " Nothing seemed to deter him from searching every week- end for " the most beautiful girl I ' ve ever seen. " His musical talent and military attitude made " the chief " a striper in the Drum and Bugle Corps. " Old man Harter, " a lover of good food, brought his room fame as the Howard Johnson ' s of the first company. He will be remembered for his easy going personality and good humor, and be welcome in any branch of the service he chooses. MICHAEL LYNCH HEIDEL Mike left Sterling, Illinois, to come to the Academy, but Mike ' s Midwestern personality and down to earth sense of humor, stayed with him in spite of the rigors of his first year. Known by many names in Bancroft, Mike was best known as " the Heids. " He displayed a knack at being a great organizer and it always seemed Mike had many irons in the fire. Of all his talents, Mike ' s ability to handle money, at least his ability to never spend it became his trademark at the Academy. Aero was his favorite academic pas- time, but more than studies, Mike was professionally motivated. There is no doubt this motivation will show in his career. I JOHN RUDOLPH HUTCHISON Originally from Los Angeles, but claiming allegiance to Shreve- port, Louisiana, " Hutch " came to U.S.IM.A. after a year of prep school at Millard. J. R. as he came to be known, was a firm believer in the maxim of " use your time to the utmost, " therefore he could always be found sleeping, throwing a football or |ust plain " messing around. " He will always be remembered for his Segundo year Army game antics which turned out to be more interesting than the game. Never a slouch at academics, J. R. always got the maximum out of grades with a minimum of study. What ever part of the Naval Service he enters, J. R. will be an inspiration to both the men he serves with and those he com- mands. MEADE ADDISON JONES, JR. Add came to Navy from Ashland, Virginia following one happy year at Randolph Macon Men ' s College where he had been a member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity. The switch to a military life didn ' t diminish the sparkling personality which Add continually used to brighten the spirits of others. Plebe year uncovered a dynamic quality which made Add a leader in all he attempted. A " Southern Gentleman " to the finest degree, Add was renowned for his reputation with the fair sex. No stranger to effort and determination. Add succeeded as a letterman at defensive end on the varsity 1 50 pound football team. Add ' s presence in any branch of the service will prove valuable and exciting for those with whom he serves. I i i ROBERT GLENN KOKSTEIN Bob came to the " Big A " from Poughkeepsie, New York with a swimming ability which was to rival Tarzan ' s. Though not a swimmer, R. G. was a natural runner, setting a plebe track record which was to stand until his second class year. Known for his pleasant personality and easy going manner Bob quite naturally accrued numerous nickmanes. The most prevalent being " Bullet, " and " R. G. " . Sunday afternoons, without fail, when an upperclass (or underclass) dance was in progress Bob would avail himself of the opportunity to enjoy a midshipman ' s favorite pastime. How- ever, Sunday night would find R. G. " in love " again. With hit academic abi lities and pleasant personality, R. G. will undoubtedly find no limits to his future as a naval officer WILLIAM JOSEPH KOPP Bill, alias " The Augustus, " better known as " Killer " will al- ways remain in the hearts and minds of his classmates. More than anyone else at the Naval Academy he displayed qualities of tem- perament and courage which have earned for him the respect of his associates, almost to the man. Only his concerted and untiring effort brought him to the top of his class academically. Chairman of the Hop Committee, Bill ' s competence in protocol and social graces grew and became known throughout the Academy. As active as Bill has been, he has certainly proved himself much more than a pretty face. Of all his classmates Bill will certainly be one of the most difficult to forget. 236 H BILLY LAROY LEWIS Louie, as he is generally known, came to the Academy after attending Marion Military Institute and serving in the Naval Re- serve. From the first he was a fiery, enthusiastic " Destroyerman " taking charge in what ever sport he participated. LaRoy was particularly adept at basketball, just earning the nickname " Gun- ner " Academics presented little trouble but were definitely not high on his list of priorities. On many occasions Louie could be found pursuing his favorite pastime, buried beneath his ' Blue and Gold ' blanket. His ability to mix fun and hard work while achiev- ing outstanding results will take Louie as far as he wishes to go in life. STEPHEN McCALL LIND Steve came to us from Olympia, Washington, after a varied and exciting life on the West Coast. Throughout his four years here, Steve has left his mark in many places. As a prominent member of the Drum and Bugle Corps, he was to prove his musical skills many times over. Springtime would find Steve either on the golf course or in the pad. Though he never made Supt ' s List, Steve was easily the best read man in the company, with his book collection the envy of all. Always remembered for his easy going personality and his ready wit, Steve is planning a career in Naval Aviation. He is sure to be tops. DANIEL JOSEPH LONG From the Steel City, Pittsburgh, came Danny Long. Starting off Plebe Year, Dan immediately amassed a phenomenal number of demos as well as the admiration of every one of his classmates. His determination and smiling countenance made him a welcome member of any crowd. It could never be said that Danny didn ' t have at least one good joke in the right place at the right time. As a member of the batt cross country and weightlifting teams, Danny exhibited his athletic prowess and once more his determi- nation and will to win. Bound to put to good use his airborne and other professional training, Dan should have no trouble chipping out his niche in the halls of Naval Service fame. GUY THOMAS MASCARI Hailing from Terra Haute, Indiana, Guy ' s only goal was to know all that was worth knowing, especially about the stock market, the ponies, and even the Navy. After running Plebe and Varsity track for two years, he rendered his valuable services to the Batt crew and Company fieldball team. The Canary ' s second home at Navy was Luce Hall, where he worked on an Ops Analysis major. Guy would have worn stars more often if academics had the glamorous appeal of other schemes like his trip to Europe. However, his name appeared frequently on the Dean ' s and Supt ' s Lists. Above all Guy possessed a great deal of professional know- ledge and was anxious to get out to the real Navy. ■■ M a y V CARLOS EDUARDO PARRAGUE Arriving on the banana boat from Chile in 1965, Parakeet brought with him many years of military experience derived from plebe years spent at both the Chilean Naval and Air Force Acad- emies. His professional attitude became readily apparent to both his classmates and the upperclass, and he distinguished himself even as a plebe. ' The Spic ' , as he vuas fondly called, picked up the English language almost as easily as he learned how to throw a football. It was always great fun to toss a beer can at him at a party and watch how he would instinctively jump up and catch it with his feet. Carlos ' easy going, Latin humor will make him welcome in any wardroom of our Navy. CHARLES RIBALTA Chuck comes to the Academy, surviving the perils that come from living in Brooklyn, New York. The experience gained from attending Brooklyn Tech High School has helped him in his " futile " attempt for scholastic excellence. On weekends you can usually find him either dragging a young lady or catching up on the sleep he missed the week before. Even with his tough schedule he still found time to become the editor of Reef Points, and an active member in the Scuba Club. Chuck distinguishes himself among his classmates as a man with a pleasant smile and a warm hello for everyone he knows. No matter which branch of the service he chooses. Chuck is sure to be an asset to the Naval Service. ! i ( LLSI ;. ' 0:R. CHARLES F.SNYDER, III C. F. came to the Naval Academy from Bradenton, Florida with a soft spot in his heart for Fords, ' Gators, and a nurse. Although his loves remained intact, under the capable leadership of the flaw his talents were rechanneled somewhat. Through it all, the Bull retained a sense of humor which offered many of us our lightest moments. C. F. ' s competency and pride in a |Ob well done made him an easy winner in all his endeavors, although he enjoyed his brightest hours of glory in the academic halls and on the athletic field. C. F. has chosen a career in Navy line where he will undoubtedly be a valuable asset and a representative of which the Class of 69 will be extremely proud. DONALD DWIGHT TIPPETT Dunbar, in the rolling hills of West Virginia, is Don ' s home- town. Although he came to Navy right out of high school, Don had no trouble with academics. His favorite department was Engineering and his interest and studiousness made him no strang- er to the Dean ' s and Supt ' s Lists. Known far and near as " The Marauder " , Don played about all of the company sports. He was our company representative for two years and was noted for his firm opinion of any issue presented. Don was a staunch believer in the military system and possessed a true professional attitude. As a midshipman Don was always looking forward to his days in the Fleet and will undoubtedly make a fine officer. LAWRENCE WILLARD TOWNSEND Larry, more well known as L. W., or just plain Lar, or various other colorful names, hails from the fair state of Florida. Larry did his best to acquire a Physics Major on validation day of his Plebe Summer, and was much dismayed when told that he would have to take a couple of courses to complete it. Lar worked hard Plebe Year, and built an academic foundation upon which, one short year later, he vaulted to academic excellence. Lar, never one to sweat the system, nonetheless, did a good job in all that he attempted. The Navy is going to receive a very intelligent and dedicated officer when Larry enters into his field of endeavor, upon graduation. MICHAEL ELWOOD YOUNKER Mike entered the " Hallowed Halls of Mother B " by a lot of hard work and the graciousness of the Secretary of the Navy. Hailing from Lincoln, Nebraska, this Napster brought with him a tenacity and dedication for the service which was admired by his classmates. After a slow start with academics, the " old man " finally got back into the groove and his name was often found among those on the " list. " An active member of the plebe and varsity track teams, Mike could usually be found afternoons climbing his pole. His desire and dedication will continue to serve him in good stead— what ever branch of the Navy is blessed with his talents. 238 " ' =«lltG; 2nd Company ' FALL SET: SUB: J. R. Sandberg; SUB-CDR; M. W. Pole; CPO: R. J. Rhoades. The second company, known afar for producing " the best damn officers in the Fleet, " has finished yet another year in a characteristic blaze of glory. The men of the second company, in their never ending search for truth, justice, and the American way, have garnered another year with professional, academic and philanthropic laurels. No strang- ers to the accolades of the Academic Board, this year ' s efforts have been crowned by the two company commanders, with their Strident Scholar project on the isolation of the mysterious Cathode Phamtom- Ray. Neither has the company shied from the challenge of the playing field, where undisputed championship has been gained in fraternity football. No small credit in these achievements is encumbent to the three underclasses, who took immediately to the aura of the " Fighting Second. " A well done is extended for another fine year.

Hi RICHARD PORTER BUSH The Motrice came hurtling out of the coal dust of Western Pennsylvania to the Boat school with a gleam In his eye and conquest on his mind. Even now, innumerable laundry bags and a few cruise boxes later, his basic determination still remains. His unending full-scale warfare with the Academic Departments and Executive Department have amazed all of us. Considering the extent to which he devoted his time to studies, it is remarkable that he could lend his talents to his battalion ' s crew, squash and weightlifting teams. Whether the future will find Rick looping through the air with Navy wings remains to be seen, but wherever It finds him, it will find an outstanding officer — and an even better man. RICHARD WAYNE CAMPBELL This man is a Texani And he won ' t ever let you forget it. Dick came charging into Annapolis with self-confidence and attacked Plebe Year with something more than enthusiasm. Youngster Year, he decided to lend his electronics talents to the Brigade radio station, spending so much time there that he became known as the Phantom. But, if we didn ' t see him, we heard him. Everyday, the " Long Tall Texan " entertained the Brigade spinning records and maintaining the O.D. watch. When not playing DJ, Dick usually fell victim to the pad. Being no great academic slash himself, Campbell spent his study hours in classmates ' rooms lowering the curve. Dick ' s likeable personality is sure to carry him far in the service. JOHN FRANCIS CLARK If you ' re looking for information on literature, playing the guitar, speaking French, or Johnny Rivers ' albums — try John. In spite of his lack of communication with the Academic Depart- ments, in these areas, he has proven himself a veritable expert. Often derided for his youthful appearance, " Boy Midshipman " is always the one who thinks things out, while the rest of us plunge right into hot water. His cross country summer trips have taken him many a mile in " Aussie-hat " and jeans. Careful consideration and deliberation are John ' s forte, and you can be sure that h e ' ll do a good job in any area. We ' re sure to hear more from John Clark. RONALD GEORGE EBY Starting out in a bad way, Ron spent his plebe year in the hospital due to a severe attack of arthritis. After finding that a medical discharge was not coming his way, the " Frog " hopped his way into everyone ' s heart with his ever-present smile and quiet personality. It was Ron who provided Army game and June Week transportation with his highly decorated red panel truck. Although completely inexperienced, he worked his way to the top of both the varsity gymnastics team and the varsity restriction squad in a single year as a second classman, and if he can just behave himself, he IS sure to succeed in whatever he attempts. t ' RICHARD PAUL FLOYD, JR. Coming to the trade school from Bardstown, Kentucky, " the Colonel " brought with him a drawl that was heard quite often plebe summer. Especially to the tune of " One, suhl Two, suhi Three, suh! . . . " His sense of humor and dramatic talents brought him immediately to the attention of the upperclass and thus were born the immortal lines of " Ma ' am, permit me to introduce myself . . . " In addition to his verbal exercising, Dick could also be found on the playing field. His attendance at company football, soccer and Softball was excelled only by his almost perfect attendance at Tr-ball If his performance as a midshipman is indicative of his career then the Navy will be gaming a valuable officer. JOHN CARLOS FRANZONI, JR. Hailing from Chevy Chase, Maryland, Carl can be found most any night planning some new sailing maneuver, learning practical applications of Math magic, and pondering over a check mate in nine, against some wary opponent. Able to accomplish the seemingly impossible, Carl finishes off four years with a Math major, Italian minor, and devoted service to many extracurricular activities. Sailing is his sport and marching is his downfall, so every spring and fall Carl can be seen sailing the backdrop to many a Parade. SSBN ' s are his life ' s dream, but only time will determine his fate. Carl ' s quick wit and constant drive to better his education and finish the job will surely be an asset to the Fleet when he ' ' ' ' ' ' " DONALD EUGENE GARAVITO Escaping from the clutches of the Hell ' s Angels in the Oakland surburbof Hayward, California. Don came to the Naval Academy with wings on his feet. He put this talent to good use by outrunning opponents for the Batt cross country team, outrunning defenders as flankerback for the Company lightweight football team and outrunning the Academic Board at every semester ' s end. " Rock " quickly showed a large capacity for hard work by steadily improving his grades while completing an Operations Analysis minor. Rock constantly filled his room with sound by combining his wide taste in music with a flair for electronics. His capacity for hard work and his constant desire to excel will make him a success anywhere the Navy sends him. . ■ Wi it ROBERT STARR GIBSON " All the world ' s a stage " and one of its bigger Starrs has got to be our man Gibs, From the metropolis of Wood River, Illinois, Hoot interrupted his journey to the sea with a year of " study " at the University of Illinois. Once at Navy, our Hamlet distinguished himself before the spotlights of Mahan Hall, on the gridiron as the Big Blue manager and throughout his company during frequent study hour appearances as a man of wit and talent. Despite some critical re views of his performances on the hallowed stages of Isherwood, Sampson and BIdg. 286 he has managed to avoid a command appearance before the green table. Graduation will undoubtedly see Bob as a man to be reckoned with. JAMES RUSSELL GUILFOYLE There haven ' t been many people who have met Gil who haven ' t counted him as a friend, and the horticulturist from the thriving metropolis of Gowen, Michigan, is a friend one can count on. His unusual study habits, or lack of them, kept his mailbox filled with correspondence from the Supt, but when a class or company project was undertaken, Gil was in on it, if indeed, he hadn ' t originated it. A man who believes in keeping them all happy, he seems several years from that long walk down the matrimonial aisle. Gil ' s popper livened many a Wardroom Saturday night and his even disposition often quelled a potential quarrel. Gil hopes to add flying Phantoms to his many talents. I ROBERT KENNETH HAWKINS, JR. After being born and raised in a bayou in northern Louisiana, Ken gave up his log canoe to come to the Naval Academy and learn destroyers. He quickly made the transition from high school ROTC greens to Navy white works with a spirit and drive that carried him through his four years. Quick wit, ready humor and a tin grin were his trademarks. If anyone ever got through the Naval Academy on sheer desire it was Ken. " Hawks " spent most of his nights in the library, knee-deep in wirest books with NO DOZ keeping him awake. His determination kept him one step ahead of the Academic Board, and we know it will keep him way ahead in the Fleet. ERIC CRITTENDEN HONOUR Coming to the Academy as a Navy junior, Eric adapted well to Navy life and found many friends, among whom we must include his two older brothers, who were also midshipmen. Snake was well known for his singing, harmonica blowing and guitar strumming ability, but he was also known in a much more favorable light for his knockabout sailing ability and his success as the ghost in Hamlet. Eric ' s greatest achievement, however, was his cartoon, " Barney Stubb, " who worked his way into everyone ' s heart with his stupidity and bad luck and earned Eric the position of Art Humor editor of the Log. With his enthusiasm and high com- petitive spirit, Eric is bound for a highly successful Naval Career. 242 i i UMBERTO CHARLES lACUANIELLO, II Ike " came to Navy from Southern California, and has been trying to convince the Navy Department to move the Academy to the Golden State ever since. Chuck ' s " humble " personality has always made him an integral part of company affairs. He can be quoted as saying almost anything about anything. Chuck proved his loyalty to TT-ball, playing several games with a cast on his ankle. Placing studies above all else " Ike " was always available for a fourth hand for bridge. When not playing cards or TT-Ball, he could usually be found in the pad. All in all Chuck ' s sense of humor has always been a bright spot in company morale. We all know that he ' s sure to go far DANIEL PATRICK KOLLAY If you ' ve never heard of Youngstown, Ohio then you ' ve never met " Kols. " Youngstown, that magical land where men do seven giant swings on horizontal bars, and twenty thousand people attend high school basketball games, counts Dan as its most devoted denizen. An active back on the 7T-ball team, Dan ' s aggressiveness on the field has been witnessed, and respected, by all who have played against him. Although he is extremely good natured, Dan is quick to take a stand against any situation or cause he believes to be wrong. Planning on a career in the Corps, Dan ' s personality, his strong sense of right and wrong, and his individ- ualism will make him a success in any career he chooses. STEPHEN LESLIE LIEBERMAN Between the Y.P. Squadron, Scuba Club and an occasional Jewish holiday, " Liebs " has often been a hard person to find. His time in the hall, however, has been well spent. A hard worker, Steve quickly established himself as the company expert on the field of economics and the elusive art of passing navigation, tactics and Y.P. courses. He has often been one of the first to offer help on practically anything from a TT-project to a classmate ' s problems with homework, and a willingness to offer honest opinions has made him the moderating influence in more than one heated discussion. Steve ' s determination, ability and forthwright honesty are sure to make him a success in what ever field of endeavor he chooses. JAMES WALTER MARTIN Always one of the quieter members, it was Jim, along with his roommate, who gave the n its name while holding a bull session one night youngster year. Although his closest friends left the Academy before their times, Jim managed to keep abreast of the situation through his face-creasing smile and tall tales, making new friends as fast as he lost the old. Jim ' s two loves are basketball and motorcycles. The first claimed all of him every free afternoon, but the second merely claimed his right hand once during second class summer. Jim has always been the kind who gets away with anything he tries, so it can be safely said that he will go far in this world. i MAURICE MICHAEL McNEIL " It is by no means enough that an officer in the Navy be a capable mariner. " When John Paul Jones spoke these words he must have foreseen such a man as Maurice. From the wrestling loft of Macdonough Hall to the basement of the bnckskellar this man carved out a career that was an amazement to all who witnessed it. He was the type of man who would give you the coat off his back, even at an Army game march-on. A firm believer that too much formal education can stifle a man, Maurice sought an education in the finer things of life. A man of discriminating tastes, Maurice chose the Class of 69 as the beginning of a naval saga. LYNN CHARLES ORFGEN " Organ " came to the Trade School straight out of high school in Hawaii. His driving ambition in the field of academics soon put him within range of the coveted anchor-man position, but by a slight miscalculation he found himself a proponent of the five year plan. Thus, after diligent study and hard work he has managed to cram four years of intense study into five. " Organ " also has the envious record of being the only man in the history of Navy to restrict two class " A ' s " in one night while drinking suds and watching the tube at New London. Lynn ' s ability to make the best of adverse situations (see above) is bound to ensure his success in any field of endeavor. MICHAEL WALTER POLE Mike came to USNA from a suburb of Washington, D.C. During his four year stretch at Navy, any free weekend would find Mike and several classmates in D.C. eating his family out of house and home and helping to keep Brother Gus ' in business. His grades started out high enough to put him on the Supt ' s list several semesters, but with the proper adjustments to his study tech- niques, soon came down to the allowable level for the 77. Mike was first string on the 7T-ball team and the first person his classmates would turn to whenever a little leadership was needed. His friendly personality and ambitious nature will take Mike just as far in life as he wants to go. RICHARD JAMES RHOADES Dick came to Navy from Grand Rapids, Michigan and quickly made his mark with a 4.0 first semester plebe year. Since that time he has hardly opened a book, but somehow he managed to stay on the Dean ' s List most of his time at Navy. He is always ready and usually able to offer help to a classmate. Dick ' s even-te mpered disposition and sense of humor provided an outlet for his own and everyone elses frustrations. Many a Tf-ball game ended with " Pile on Rhoades! " He was a crew manager for one season, but spent most of his time playing company sports. Dick came to Navy with his heart set on following in his brother ' s footsteps as a Navy Pilot. JOHN ALEXANDER ROEDER As an Air Force brat, John can call many places his home with Portsmouth, New Hampshire coming last on the list before being unmercifully transformed from a fun-loving civilian to one of Uncle Sam ' s examples of military perfection. His athletic prowess on the soccer and football fields coupled with a strong competitive spirit has made John an outstanding teammate. Academics never bothered " Raids, " and he never bothered with them although he always managed to keep Supt ' s List within sight. His ability to pinpoint a goal and strive for success made him a beneficial example to all who came in contact with him. 244 ROBERT CHARLES RUSSELL It has been suggested by many that the " Ring of Valor " and " Men of Annapolis " cannot claim to coverall aspects of academy life. During his four year stay at Navy, Robert ' s life was accentu ated by those portions of the aforementioned films, which the Maryland State Board of Censors could not have found anything but objectionable. A master of the one night term paper, Robert soon retired from the academic scene, choosing to favor his tendency to wine, women and song, in keeping with his continual pursuit of the " good life. " Officer and gentleman by an act of Congress, Robert is indeed ready for the Fleet. But the question JAMES RALPH SANDBERG From Pomona, California, Jim brought this philosophy, ' The less you sleep, the more you can work. " He could be found at all hours of the night and day, working in the Photo Lab, playing football and lacrosse, studying, singing with the choir, or thinking of his favorite pastime: an XKE roadster (kept beyond the seven-mile limit ... at times). After a youngster year outside the Green Fence, Jim concentrated on lacrosse and his job as a photographer. Despite semi-annual periods of despair, he managed a respectable QPR in completing his Weapons minor. His work in the darkroom paid off too: he was the Photo Editor of the book you are reading right now. JAMES DOUGLAS STEVENS Snatched away from Sacramento, California by a Presidential appointment, Jim soon developed a nostalgia for the land of beaches and blondes that earned him the nickname " California Dreamer. " Navy could deprive him of his Corvette and his surfboard but not his ability with the fairer sex, as is attested by his collection of wedding invitations from old girlfriends. Since the boat school didn ' t have a Corvette racing team, Jim channeled his athletic abilities into other areas, earning a letter in pistol and becoming a sought after member of company intramurals. The drive and determination that enabled Jim to fit thirty or more hours of work into each day will surely make him a valuable asset to the fleet. THOMAS ERIC UTEGAARD Coming to the Academy from Hawaii, Eric soon made a name for himself as one of the better amateur golfers this side of the Masters. When not on the links, however, he could usually be found in his room working on some virtually impossible nuclear physics problem. A hard worker, the establishment was quick to make him a striper, and he has proved that he can handle anything tossed his way. Eric does well at what ever he tries. As first string TT-football quarterback his blinding, hand-stinging passes were usually on target, and though not noted for his verbosity, his sly wit hits Its mark in many a conversation. Eric is sure to find success in any field he chooses. JAMES GORDON WALLFRED Jim, who is known affectionately as " Bump " came to us from the University of Minnesota where he was studying for a Mechani- cal Engineering degree. Coming from the Naval Reserve, Jim adapted well to the rigors of the professional life at Navy. His favorite activity was steaming on the YP ' s. Here Jim really excelled, qualifying for Engineering Officer and OOD youngster year, and becoming YPRON 4 Chief Engineer in his second class, year. Jim also did quite well under the water and could often be seen lugging his scuba gear over to the Natatorium. Varsity sub squad swimming rounded out his water activities, and company football completed his sports. Attitude, determination and dedica- tion to the Naval Service guarantee Jim success in the Navy. THOMAS JOSEPH WOJCIECHOWSKI One year ago a significant event in recent Naval history took place with the commissioning of the battleship U.S.S. NEW JERSEY. Now, in 1969, the Navy prepares itself for yet another great contribution of New Jersey origin as Wojo, the wonder boy from Trenton, accepts his naval commission. A man of ahtletic ability, in his early years at Navy, Wojo used to throw the old curve ball for the baseball team. In his later years he curved out of the baseball scene, slipping into the pursuit of a more leisurely and pleasurable interpretation of Academy life, A Math major, Tom soon put two and two together coming up with that four year graduation and success formula. 245 3RD COMPANY, SECOND CLASS Row 1: Rankin, R.

Never let it be said that 3rd company did not enjoy good entertainment. There was always a large crowd in the wardroom on the weekends watching the best? Hollywood has to offer. THREE was never much on sports, preferring indoor sports like all night bridge and hearts games. And who knows what is in the keg that hangs over the wardroom door? After 3rd company ' s Army parties, the Plaza Hotel will never be the same. Third Company may not have been the pride of the Brigade but it is the pride of those who leave with memories and friendships that will never be forgotten. WINTER SET: CO CDR J. L.

You four hundred and eighty wild horses, " echoes thru the halls and Flash Gordon Barney pulls up in his powerful, green, bcxy, nonreg GTO. " The Iguana " hops out, a fifth of rum dangling from his left hand, a deck of cards clutched in his right fist, and a 220 pound Olympic barbell clenched firmly under his arm. Voted as Florida ' s 1968 " All American Boy Contest " winner, Barney could usually be found knocking off letters to his many admiring lovelys or sweating in the weight room as the mainstay of the First Batt weightlifting team. Jim ' s personality (and good looksl guarantee him success in anything he undertakes and we all wish him the best of luck in the future. I WILLIAM LEE BRUCKNER Bill, or " good ole Brucks " as many guys came to call him, came to us from the wilderness of Rhinelander, Wisconsin, a " large " city somewhere west of the Atlantic and brought with him a personal- ity which continually amazed his classmates. A hard worker. Bill enjoyed studies and desired to learn all he could while at the Academy. But studies weren ' t his only interest as he excelled both on the athletic fields and at the Army parties. Known for his hall antics, Bill could be heard many a night echoing his famed Tarzan yell through T ' court and never missed a chance at good old-fash- ioned horse play. Also known for his seagoing prowess and love of the wild blue yonder. Bill will probably be the Navy ' s youngest Admiral. HUBERT McRAE CARMICHAEL, JR. Mike, hailing from the land of mint juleps and peaches, brought to the Naval Academy the air of a Southern Gentleman, and the wailing sounds of Hank Williams. The only trouble he ran into Plebe year was with his squad leader who liked to intercept his mail from a certain, special Southern Belle back in Atlanta. Spike has excelled in both wrestling and academics in his four years here at Navy, being on the varsity wrestling team for three years. With " stars " on his P.J. ' s, Spike could be found logging in many joyous hours in his pad. With his intelligence and deter- mination. Spike will be a valuable addition to Uncle Sam ' s Navy. JOHN MICHAEL CHEVRIER John, who came to the Academy straight out of high school, claims Springfield, Massachusetts as his hometown. His four years of academy life have been impressionable, if not a constant chal- lenge to him as well as the entire system. His keen interest in the life of a midshipman and his strong desire for a career in the Naval Service are perhaps his most distinguishing characteristics. These factors cannot be outweighed by his never ending search for knowledge, for it was not an uncommon practice for John to stay up until the early hours of the morning studying. It is this same type of fortitude and desire that will carry John on to a most successful career in the fleet following graduation. WILLIAM KENNETH COXE, JR. A native of the Sunshine State, Bill came to the Academy after a year at NROTC at Auburn University. Since then he has chosen Naval Operations Analysis as his minor. Bill plays a blistering game of golf, but if he isn ' t out on the links giving some old pro a lesson or two he has probably donned his scuba gear to go tangle with a few alligators. An avid swimmer and sailor, he enjoys all kinds of sports and is a spirited competitor. Always willing to take a moment of his time to help someone with his problem. Bill has contributed much to Academy life. His spirit and dedication will make him a welcome addition to the Fleet. 248 I ( i PATRICK WILHELM ELLIOTT The " California Blond " is of Navy lineage and fiopes to follow in tfie submerged footsteps of his father. Known for his acoustical perfection he could always be counted on for advice on sound systems. His affection for water led to his prowess as a scuba instructor and junior aqua lad. This training should aid Pat in whatever branch of the seagoing Fleet he joins. Other areas of excellence known to Pat were wrestling, weightlifting, sports cars, running and drinking. His autobiography will someday make unbelievable reading. His smile and professional outlook should carry him far up the ladder of success. MARK LEE FORD Mark came to the Academy right after graduating from high school in Oriskany Falls, New York, with a class of 1 7. The size of the Brigade presented no problems to Mark, and he easily adjusted to the rigorous demands of Academy life. His energy and enthu- siasm were evident in everything from J.V. soccer and company sports to academics and liberty. Though not the " Einstein " of the Brigade, Mark ' s common sense, determination, and self confidence will make him a welcome addition to the fleet — if his fellow officers can find him behind all that cigar and pipe smoke. ROBERT MALCOLM FORTSON, III Malcolm entered the Naval Academy from nearby Falls Church, Virginia. Having grown up with the Navy, Mai was no stranger to the customs and traditions which at first baffled us all. He never had any trouble with the academic departments as he ignored them for four years and they usually ignored him. An astute student of Math and Science, f lal will always be remem- bered snoozing in his pad with an opened " Physics " or " Fluids " book nearby. On weekends Mai would most often be found relaxing on the water, his first love. The Academy loses a com- petitor and many of us lose a friend on graduation day, but separate ways will not erase Mai ' s mark on the Academy or ourselves. MICHAEL PHILLIP GEMBOL Mike dwells in Columbus, Nebraska, when the Navy doesn ' t require his presence elsewhere. Believing that a busy schedule will pay for itself, he added year-round participation in varsity crew to the requisites for a Russian major, and double-overloaded several semesters to fill the gaps. A diverse, almost conflicting, range of interests left Mike ' s attentions divided between chess and scuba diving, " New England girls " and Lotuses, or fruit flies and boa constrictors. He left his mark in places other than the laundry smokestack, though as the Supt ' s list attests, and the records show that he will be willing and able to offer a great deal to the service. V RONALD DERWOOD GUMBERT, JR. A man so dedicated to doing a good job, that he will not sleep until he can say, I have done my best. Ron came to the Naval Academy already a veteran of college at Ohio University. Arriving from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, Ron took the attitude that in order to get things done right in the class, he would give as much of his time as possible. Ron was very active working on the class policy committee and class car committee, as a company honor rep- resentative and a member of the choir. If not at some meeting or studying, Ron could be found working just as hard on the athletic field. Ron ' s dedication will always be one of his outstanding characteristics. RANDALL SHERMAN HENDERSON Randy came to the banks of the Severn shortly after grad- uation from Princess Anne High in Virginia Beach. As a Plebe he showed keen interest and was always involved in one activity or another. He found his new home in the EH G Department and could be counted on for much needed assistance when less fortu- nate classmates were struggling with a term paper. Randy also found a position on the debate team. Debating required a great deal of his time, but the long weekend trips that went along with the tournaments more than made up for his troubles. Randy ' s grasp of professional knowledge and his ability to make friends should make him a welcomed addition to the Fleet. 249 F»si MICHAEL KEITH JONES Coming from the land of rain forests, Mike brought with him an amazing talent for the unusual that kept all of us in high spirits. He will always be remembered for his ability to take a joke or a ribbing with a smile. Never one to concern himself with the expenses of a love-life, Mike devoted his Saturday nights as color tone adjuster on the company ' s TV set. The blue trampoline insured his physical stamina while a member of the lightweight crew team. He learned the fine art of plebe indoctrination and all the plebes knew him intimately. Mike will be a welcome and lively candidate and addition to any wardroom and the Navy will gam a dedicated worker. CHARLES LORING JOSLIN Following family tradition, Chip decided to give up the sunny Florida life for a four year trip to " good ol ' Canoe U. " Life on the water seemed more than natural to him and this was evident in his participation in Water Polo, the Scuba Club, and in sailing on the varsity Shields team. Never one to throw anything away. Chip always had the most complete set of " gouge " in the company. Chip found his best times at the Academy were the summer programs, especially " happy hour at the O ' Club. " Never plagued by women problems, he always had dates waiting, and sometimes waiting, waiting and waiting. Chip ' s enthusiasm and drive will carry him far in the Naval Service. GREGORY JOHN KIEFFER " Kief " , after three successful years at Faribault High School in the vast waste lands of Minnesota, lourneyed to the banks of the Severn, Greg took plebe year with a smile and a can of shaving cream in his hand. A constant wearer of stars, Greg even obtained a magic 4.00 one semester. Not letting his athletic prowessesgo wasted, Greg established himself as the Tommy Nobis, Bart Starr, and Raymond Berry of the lightweight, later heavyweight, com- pany football team. Never one to let his love life get him down, " Kief " could often be found pinning a new hopeful ' s picture on his bulletin board. With his desire and hard earned Oceanography Major, Greg should find success wherever he ventures. HENRY JOSEPH KUCINSKI Hank came to us from the cultural center of the world. Long Island, New York. Known in high school for his athletic and academic ability Hank brought a true spirit of competition with him and exercised it on the athletic field and with the Executive Department. Although successful in endeavors with the opposite sex his social life was marred with many a set back by the U.S.N. A. blind date, and discouraged by the famous DC. parties. Although Hank never saw life from theSupt ' s list he managed to stay well above the water line in academics. Also famous for a three foot hole in a YP, Hank will undoubtedly be a future C.N.O. GEORGE VAN HORNE KUCK, JR. " Grunt " came to the Severn after a tour in the Marine Corps and a year at the University of Colorado. A firm believer in regimentation and military life in general, the " old man " is always quick to defend his chosen life. No one can doubt that if there were ever anyone meant to wear the " green " it is George. Is there anyone else who celebrates 10 November as a national holiday? His sharp military appearance and commanding voice are re- nowned. The future will certainly hold many successes for him both in and out of his beloved Corps. 250 I DAVID MICHAEL LUMSDEN A Navy Junior. Dave hails from just about everywhere but calls San Francisco his home. Dave came straight from Encinal High in Alameda, eager to make his mark at the Academy. Not one for numbers, Dave was a management minor in the truest sense of the word. Far more active outside the academic departments, he attended Jump school and became a qualified Scuba instructor. He was just as active in sports, trying his hand at everything from varsity sailing to company handball. His willingness to help, to work, and above all to have a good time will add materially to Dave ' s future success as an officer. GLENN JAMES MAUS, II Glenn came to the Academy from Ohio, and found everything he had dreamed of — on the other side of the wall. Making the best of it, he worked hard, both on the inside and the outside. He was satisfied with a 3.0 and a date every weekend, or maybe two. A consummate card player who never admitted losing, Glenn found time for other sports at the Academy, winning numerals for company football. Keeping his mind on the books was never a problem: Glenn made Superintendent ' s List and Dean ' s List with- out strain on his part or that of his books. If his luck holds out in the future, there won ' t be much to stand before him. . !,■ THOMAS WALTER McQUEEN " Howdy! " With a broad smile and wave of the hand as he greeted you, Tom could make you feel right at home, home for him being Williamson, West Virginia, on the banks of the mighty Tug River. After a successful season as a member of the Plebe football team, Tom decided to devote more time to the books and never encountered any problems there. He still found time to lead the company heavyweights and Softball team to victory on many weekday afternoons. Any other time you might find him contri- buting heavily to the bull sessions or grooving to the wailing sound of Hank Williams. With his friendly manner and desire to excel, Tom is assured of success in any future endeavor. THOMAS ROBERT NASTRO " Nasty " Nastro, a wicked man with a lacrosse stick but not with the opposite sex, came to Navy after an exciting lacrosse career in Wantagh, Long Island. No matter how hard he tried every drag he had at USNA was a wonder to behold. Much, however, could be said for his academic prowess. Tom met the Math Department in his Youngster Year and the love affair that devel- oped was truly a passionate one. Tom could zerox a homework assignment faster than any computer. The best word to describe Tom ' s personality is " salty, " truly he was born on the crest of a wave and rocked in the cradle of the deep. Probably a career man, Tom will make a fine addition to the Naval Service. NAT MILLER PACE, JR. " Pacer " came to the Severn following a year at the University of California at Riverside. He quickly established himself as a charger and left no doubt in anyone ' s mind that he would follow the path of his father as a career Marine officer. His hard charging and competitive spirit led him to the captaincy of the pistol team, and made him a welcome asset to any intramural team. Nat is a lover of soul sounds and every spare moment he can be found in a darkened room, filled with Herbie Mann or Wes Montgomery, contemplating problems in general. The future will certainly hold many successes for him both in and out of the Corps. ROBERT WILLIAM PHILLIPS, JR. Bob came to the Academy from Andover High near Baltimore, Maryland. Once his bangs were cut, he stepped mto Plebe year. A member of the Plebe fencing team, he quickly showed his ability with a sabre. During Youngster Year he started to show that academics were no problem. It was during this time that he showed his amazing ability to study with his eyes closed. Second class year found Bob in the full swing of things. With the aca- demics well under his belt. Bob concentrated on fencing and earned a varsity letter. With this proven determination. Bob has shown that he has the ability to attain what ever he sets his sights ANDREW MAXWELL SCOTT Scottie, a naturalized citizen of the U.S., was born in England, and the Limey was quick to defend his native land against all who dared criticize. He came to the Academy from his beloved home state of California and a year at San Fernando Valley State College. His interests included sports cars, sports and girls, not necessarily in that order. Minoring in Foreign Relations, Andy had no trouble with courses in the Bull Department, but didn ' t always see eye to eye with the other departments, especially Math. He was an enthusiastic participant on battalion squash, company lightweight football and company Softball teams. Andy ' s good sense of humor and jovial nature will make him a welcome member in any wardroom. GARY LLOYD SMITH Third Company ' s authority on wild animals found his way from Kent, Washington to the shores of the Severn, where Navy tried to force its abundance of the finer things of life on " Smitty " and almost succeeded. He conquered plebe year rather easily and enjoyed the privileges of third class so much that the Executive Department bestowed the rates of a youngster on him again the following year The classroom was never a struggle for Gary and his name became a permanent part of the Dean ' s and Superin- tendent ' s Lists. When he took time off from the pad, Gary was logging in mile after mile around Hospital Point. The Navy will benefit from Gary ' s hard working attitude, academic achievements and friendly personality. CHARLES ALAIM SMITH Chuck was an Air Force brat before coming here from Scott Air Force Base, Illinois via graduation from Mascoutah High School. Chuck has shown he has what it takes to be a top-notch performer. Intramural sports such as heavyweight football, fencing and water polo show Chuck ' s versatility. Academics are very important to Chuck. He selected the most challenging courses in the Engineering Department. This has been no easy task, for he has always taken at least one overload and still made the Superin- tendent ' s List every semester. Those of us who have known him during our four years at the Academy have certainly benefitted, as will the Navy and those who serve with him when he joins the Fleet. iilMEP, Cuminins — JAMES LEESOLBERG Soly came to us from Clearwater, Florida and brought with him a unique musical talent and an aptitude for academics that could be matched by few. He was always on the Dean ' s and Superintendent ' s Lists, While not studying, and this was most of the time, Jim could be found penning a letter to his personal ray of Florida sunshine or devising some way to get closer to her for those too infrequent leaves. Even as a Plebe he was a mainstay of every sport in which he participated, whether it was volleyball, basketball, baseball or the blue trampoline. Jim ' s amazingly good nature and ability to do many things exceedingly well should make him a success in what ever field he chooses after graduation. PETER BRIAN ZUIDEMA Claiming Columbus, Ohio, as home, Pete gave up his dreams of being an AIIAmerican basketball player for State to come to Navy. Bringing along an adequate store of " smarts " to handle the academics, and athletic ability enough to make both the plebe and varsity basketball teams, about the only things Zuides needed were a few more nicknames (Channel-cat, Dutchman). Besides being an expert at guarding his rack and leading bull sessions, Pete managed to guide the company basketball and baseball teams to their share of victories. With his ability to make friends and his varied inter- ests, the Dutchman will be a welcome asset to what ever branch of the service he chooses and a success in any. 252 I 7% ' ' ©. » m 4th Company C ;3c FALL SET: CDR: J.

CHRISTOPHER LYNWOOD ADDISON A real southern gentleman from Jacksonville, Florida, Chris appears to be a very serious college student to the casual observer. But once he takes off his hat, he looks much better with his yellow surfboard. Aside from being a scholar, making Dean ' s and Superintendent ' s Lists, he is one of Navy ' s finest intramural lacrosse players. Outside of sports, Chris ' extracurricular activities included NACA, Foreign Relations Club, Portuguese Club and NAFAC. Chris applied his cheerful attitude and dynamic person- ality not only to his classmates but to a better than average number of the opposite sex. His intelligence and ability to get along with people will make him a success in what ever field he " " " ' JOHN CHARLES AURIEMMA John came to USNA from Brother Rice High School in Chicago. Not one to worry about academics, Cro-magnon, could be frequently found in the embrace of the " pad Monster. " His uncontrollable enthusiasm combined with his fine athletic abilities helped to lead the Fourth Company fieldball team to numerous victories, while his prowess in the " Chlorinebin " earned for him the dubious distinction of being selected Captain of the swimming sub-squad. In particular, he will always be remembered by the notorious " Castle Klan " for his unusual and rather colorful skill in redecorating pool tables. No matter what path John may choose to follow, his dedication, competence and sense of humor will make him an invaluable contribution to the Naval Service. THOMAS MICHAEL BYRNE Tom entered the Academy from the Fleet and soon established himself as one of the outstanding men of the company. He was well known for taking special liberties at the Academy. Taking an extra day for semester break or stretching a weekend pass on Youngster Cruise to thirty days wer e every day occurrences for him. Tom also has the distinction of being the first Greek Irishman to graduate from the Academy. Although his Greek ancestry is questionable. As far as sports and academics went, there was no greater competitor on the field and when study hour came around, Tom always found time to open the books during commercials. The Fleet will be proud to have Tom as a member. JAMES RALPH CARLSON Being born a man of philosophy, the " Try Anything Once " credo brought Jim to the Naval Academy from the arctic wilder- ness of Minnesota. After adjusting to the climate and the military life, the " Make the Best of What you ' ve Got " attitude began to bring out his musical abilities as a guitarist and his supernatural knowledge of wires, which enabled many of his classmates to pass the well known required science courses of second class year, A man of countless friends and endless monetary funds derived from some unknown source, Jim became a well rounded midshipman and after adopting the " It only hurts when you ' re awake " philosophy, he achieved unparalleled heights during his hibernation of the last two years. DAVID EARL CARTER Dave, a product of Bradford, Pennsylvania, came to the Acad- emy directly from high school. Academics proved to be " no sweat " for him, and many a classmate will attest to his ability to unravel the evasive mysteries of electronics. Earning a major in Electrical Science, he spent many a study hour building tape-re- corders, record players, and the like. An experienced sailor, Dave helped lead the team to a Brigade Championship. Weekends first class year were divided between his MG and members of the opposite sex. Dave ' s maturity, common sense and personality, which endeared him to his friends and gained him the respect of his subordinates, will insure him of a successful career. WILLIAM EDWARD CUMMINS, JR. Ed came to the Academy directly from Granby High School in Norfolk. With his outstanding athletic and academic abilities, he had little trouble with the rigors of Plebe year. Besides maintaining his high grades. Ed still managed to find time to earn his letter in swimming and to drag almost every weekend. Even with all of these activities, he could often be found at the Castle, where, after a few tall ones, his reddened features earned him a reputation as a cherry of a guy. With all of his attributes, Ed should prove to be one of the most outstanding officers to graduate from the Naval Academy. JOHN A. FELTEN John came to the Naval Academy straight from the thriving metropolis of Bremen, Indiana. (Where?) His hometown ' s size is one of the two jokes that he must face up to from his friends every day. The other being his " Captaincy " of the After Class Swim Club! Actually, John has some noteworthy achievements to be proud of. With a minimum amount of effort, he has maintained honor grades almost every semester. He is the reliable backstop on the company Softball team and played on the Regimental Champi- onship volleyball team. John ' s warm personality is evidenced by the multitude of close friends that he has made. His sincerity and resourcefulness are sure to lead him through a very rewarding future in the Fleet. TERRY LEE CRUMLEY Terry, alias " Fat Tick " or " Stump " , a product of Racine, Wisconsin, came to USNA straight from high school. He quickly established himself as one of those that had the determination of his ability to get things done. " Stump " was a star on the Plebe wrestling team which helped him at occasionally employing his talents as a semi-bouncer at the castle — that is, if he wasn ' t hampered by a strange affliction known to attack him on the weekends, impairing his sight and sense of balance somewhat. As for academics, the " Fat Tick " encountered a few obstacles, but managed to slide on through — Terry will certainly be remembered by all, for his optimism and sincerity which will certainly win him success in all that he undertakes. EDWARD JAMES HACKETT " Pee-Pee Bod " as Ed is tenderly called, has made one of the greatest contributions ever to our society — soft power. This achievement stems from Ed ' s vast experience with a mattress, ranging from eighteen straight hours to thirty seconds of pure relief. Ed ' s soft power has been put to great use in athletics — he has been known to change the TV channel three times in one hour in order to view all the football games, Ed ' s coolness is carried over from his military experiences at New Mexico Military Institute. All these qualities, coupled with Ed ' s amazing academic ability, have always stood him high in the Brigade organization. His training on the Atlantic cruises have endeared Ed with a great love of Navy life. CLAY WINCHESTER HARDIN Clay came to the Academy from Washington, D.C. as a day student, but found that Navy only accepted fulltime employees. " Herff " decided to stay and proceeded to build up an impressive academic standing, and his name was regularly found on the Dean ' s List. An enthusiastic runner. Clay was a valuable asset to the Battalion track team. For inspiration he usually turned to the " blue tramp " and his exceptional wit and carefree manner made for interesting bull sessions. His willingness to help classmates made many friends for him. When Clay graduates the Naval Service will surely gain a competent officer. LONIMIE PARKER HEARNE Lonnie " P " came to the Academy from the heart of Missis- sippi. He quickly became popular with his newfound Yankee friends and with a large number of Maryland girls. Old Lon was an expert at having a good time and could be found anywhere there were girls, drinks, or both. Also an excellent athlete in any and all contact sports, especially those not involving an extraordinary amount of agility, he played 150 pound football and always gave his best effort in intramural fieldball and rugby games. The spirit of competition he learned on the athletic field and the perseverance he learned in his battle with the books should serve Lon well when he enters the Naval Service. 256 ffti ' . DAVID MILLER HEMING Dave, a Navy junior, left his family back home in Walnut Creek, California and came to the Naval Academy with a thirst for knowlege and a strong determination to quench it. He met the challenge of Academy life with enthusiasm and spirit and has kept the same high standard of motivation all four years. Although frequently on the Superintendent ' s List, Dave could always be found in the pad before the midnight hour. He has become a ' world traveler ' with the Glee Club and enjoyed every minute of it, especially when it entailed leaving the Academy for a weekend. The high degree of conscientious initiative and ability that Dave possesses will undoubtedly serve the Navy well. JACK HAYS JANES " Smilin ' Jack " came to Navy from the cornfields of Ohio. He was the proud son of a prosperous mid-western Farmer. Through- out his four years. Jack never surrendered the high principles by which he was raised. His dedicated, hard working, and cheerful nature made him an instant success at the Academy. Jack will probably be remembered most for his uncanny mastery of electri- cal science. He spent many helpful hours trying to relate to others the " magic of wires " which seemingly only he could comprehend. Jack ' s inherent good nature and quick wit truly represented the best of the Buckeye State. GEORGE JOSEPH KANUPKA, III " K.F. " as George is affectionately known to his classmates, hails from the thriving metropolis of Kensington, Connecticut. He has stood out ever since his Plebe Year with four stripes right up to First Class Treasurer of the " CASTLE. " One of the friendliest guys you ' d ever want to meet there isn ' t a person George wouldn ' t share a drink with especially if it is HAIRY BUFFALO. Diligence and hard work are his middle names; study hour would always find him book in hand, one eye on the " set " and the other eye on the " popper. " He ' d never play cnbbage without shoe polish and rag in action. Navy Line brace yourself — here comes " Kanupka Farragut. " JOHN M. LEWIS, II Lewie came to USNA from Albuquerque, New Mexico after a peaceful year at the University of New Mexico. He never had any trouble with academics even though it was during study hour that he became one of the most accomplished barbers around. Lewie was always a fierce competitor in all sports and was one of the best athletes in the company. His weekends were taken up with work and play at the " Castle, " where he did not need a reason to have a party. Lewie was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it, whether it be in academics or repairing electrical equipment. Upon graduation Navy Air will receive a most competent and dependable Naval Officer. A i u DAN HILL LOCHNER In a moment of unparalled weakness Dan passed up Purdue University for the brighter shores of Annapohs. Finding his inter- est at Navy lying in the field of international relations, Dan applied himself to the study of this subject with an avid interest. More often than not though, Dan could be found with his nose in a sports car magazine or under a pillow preparmg himself for another hard day at the Academy. Dan ' s keen sense of humor and ability to get along with everyone made many friends for him. A true scholar and gentleman, Dan should prove to be a fine officer and an asset to the Naval Service. JOHN C. MAGGI Never at a loss for words. Jack could always be found in the middle of a conversati on giving somebody the " straight-gouge. " Hailmg from Massapequa, New York, Jack quickly found friends at the Academy. Both academics and athletics came easy for him as he participated in Plebe and varsity wrestling and was a stalwart on the company football and Softball teams. When not in the pad. Jack could always be found spending his free time on his manage- ment minor or cycling about town. Other activities which took up much of Jack ' s weekend time were being a " castleman " and one of the original " good guys " Jack ' s graduation and commissioning will undoubtedly lead him to an outstanding future in the Fleet. CHARLES EDWARD McKELDIN, JR. Chuck came to us from the cultural center of East Baltimore. Plebe year taught Chuck the importance of dependability and impressed upon him the value of long hours of sound sleep. When Chuck wasn ' t in his pad dreaming fondly of sitting behind the wheel of his Corvette, you could find him out making a valuable contribution to the Batt lacrosse team. Chuck ' s fine sense of humor and his easy-going nature rapidly earned him the respect and friendship of those who came in contact with him. Chuck ' s June Week exploits caused many a beautiful young girl to, " Be- ware of the Pear. " Chuck ' s friendly nature, sense of humor, and dependability will make him a valuable asset to the Navy. I MICHAEL SCOTT NEWMAN " Alfie, " as Mike is affectionately know by his friends, came to USNA straight out of high school on a Presidential appointment. Born in Franklin, Indiana and being an Army junior, he had already become somewhat acquainted with service life. Providing the soccer team with his abilities he became a member of the plebe team, varsity squad and captain of the JV ' s. Mike was also a member of the Catholic Choir. But these extracurricular activities never kept Mike from maintaining his high academic performance — especially in TV Guide analysis and poker probability. It is ;| certain Mike ' s many and varied talents and determination to do his best will ensure him success after graduation. BARRY WORRAL O ' NEAL In four years at Navy, Barry never lost his North Carolina drawl and ability to get along with everyone he met, although learning to wear shoes was quite an adjustment. On his way to a major in Italian, he found time to row crew and improve his game of tennis, as well as watch a good amount of television. His musical talents were exercised through the Chapel Choir and the " Marksmen " , for which he sang and played bass guitar. Known for head of hair and remarkable ability at mixing a drink, Barry will always be remembered by his classmates as the " Fang. " His perseverance and dedication will certainly assure him of a success- ful and rewarding career. 258 I JEROME LEONARD PETYKOWSKI Ski gave up the wild fraternity life and left his ROTC buddies behind at the University of Illinois to come to USNA. Academics were never easy for Jerry vuho worked hard to outsmart the ' .Vizards of Sampson Hall. " Ski was not an early riser. During Youngster year, his love for those extra moments in the arms of the " pad monster " earned him many a relaxing weekend in the company of the BOOW. When not in the dentist ' s chair or combing his long locks, Petro was always willing to engage m ar. , form of ahtletics, and contributed greatly to many of the wmnr .: company intramural teams. His determination and dependabilit , will help earn for him his Navy wings of gold. WILLIAM PETER POIRIER Bill, otherwise known as " the fish or brapper " came straight to the Academy from Quincy, Massachusetts. Once at the Academy he established himself as a good student as well as a great friend. He could often be seen late at night making another attempt to set up his multi-million dollar stereo. He was also famous for his ability in writing checks, the same one over and over again. As an athlete Bill was one of the greatest the Academy has known, which can be verified by the many swimming records he set. The captain of our swimming team, he always found time to make it out to the castle to take part in the weekend festivities. Bill will surely be a credit to the Navy as well as his class. ROY WILLIAM REEBER Roy was raised m Queens, New York, where he attended high school and one year of college before leaving for the Academy. A diligent worker and true believer of having a good time, when time permitted, he never let the perils of USNA get him down. " Reebs " has always been an admirer of the fairer sex. Every weekend he could be found dragging a different girl. Roy is looking forward, anxiously, to the joys of flying, either for the Navy or, on the side, as a private pilot. Here at the Academy, or in the fleet, Roy will always be known as one of the most friendly and sincere people around. ROY CHANDLER RIEVE Although a Navy junior, Roy entered the Naval Academy as innocent and unsuspecting as all plebes. In true Navy fashion, he traveled throughout the country and overseas attending numerous schools, yet his heart never left his native California. While at USNA, he was a hard and persevering worker, excelling consis- tently within the academic department. He spent as much time as his limited budget and even more limited leave periods would allow on the western slopes in pursuit of his favorite hobby, skiing. Roy ' s unyielding patience and desire for perfection, cou- pled with a high sense of humor, will serve him well when ' 69 hits the fleet. CARL MARK TANKERSLEY Carl, known to all his friends as " Tank " , came to the Acade- my straight from high school. After a tough uphill fight with Plebe calculus, Tank managed to sidestep any further academic problems, pulling a major upset over second class wires. On the athletic field, he distinguished himself as an outstanding company soccer, foot- ball, and Softball player, and to this day, holds the sub squad track record for the second class run. His interests ranged from sports car racing to the progress of the beloved Senators baseball team. All these, however, was his dedication to the pursuit of the opposite sex. Tank ' s good nature, easy going manner, and strong determination will give the Navy an excellent and dedicated offi- JAMES CROSBY WARD Jim, better known as Bubba to his friends, was born in Dallas, Texas. He came to the Academy via one year at Navarro Junior College. Arriving at USNA a ' married ' man by virtue of his engagement, he could usually be found in the hall on weekends either watching TV or in the pad. During the week his efforts were directed toward victories for the batt football, basketball, and company fieldball teams. When not preparing an aerospace assign- ment, in pursuit of his minor, Bubba spent his spare time figuring out how he was going to get rich on an Ensign ' s pay. A careful planner, he should make an excellent Naval Officer. 259 5TH COMPANY, SECOND CLASS Row 1: Kuhne, M. D.; Para, A. E.; Herb, R. D.; Taze well, J. P. jr.. Castle, K. L., Sorensen, D.

Stevens, Jr. Twenty-nine strong, we came to Mighty Five from our two year stint in twenty-nine. Since, we ' ve lost but one, and had a few close calls. ' 69 of the fifth has been a unique bunch: we ' ve had our subtleties, but nothing of major consequence. Just little things, like the grand arrival of the company commander in the wardroom, announcing his condition while performing a strip. Naturally, we ' ll never forget Lieutenant Cleater ' s " firstie SLJ check-off board, " or the major crisis over cruise assignments, or Judy Fondue. Above all else, however, we ' ll remember each other and the bonds of comradeship and professionalism which bound ' em together here. As different though we may be, the twenty-eight could become one to get the job done. WINTER SET: CO. CDR: J. B. Chopek; SUB-CDR G R Polansky; CPO: C. D. Lilly, Jr. Ml ' SPRING SET: CDR: R E.

Cleater, USN CHARLES EDWARD ALLEN Hailing from the thriving metropolis of Port Lavaca, Texas, Charlie brought to the Academy a year of college and an affable personality. Not one to be satisfied with making the varsity Supt ' s List, he has made his mark on the squash team his first year followed up by outstanding demonstrations of Softball and battal- ion football prowess on the tundra of Hospital Point. Being anchor man in swimming class, Charlie more than made up for this by taking afternoons off to show someone the more subtle points of nine-ball or tennis. Charlie ' s ambition and drive will stand him in good stead upon graduation and he will surely make as many friends on the " outside " as he has at the Academy, DUANE PAUL BATTLES A land-locked lubber from Grand Island, Nebraska, Duane made the transition from the cloistered life at the University of Nebraska to the frenetic social whirl of USNA with a minimum of difficulty. Always adaptable, he soon discovered Eastern Shore lasses to be the equal of those in the Midwest, and had ample chances to perfect his escape and evasion techniques, generally after liberty expiration. When not pursuing his nocturnal activities. Bat still had sufficient time to be remembered as an unyielding defensive fieldball player, and to be an active member of the marching ninety of the Drum and Bugle Corps. Duane ' s resource- fulness, drive and intelligence will take him far in the Naval Service. CHARLES THOMAS BIDDLE, JR. Hailing from " the lone star state " of Texas, Tommy arrived at the Academy right out of high school. A top notch debater in his pre-college days. Bids used his firm grasp of the English language and solid background in contemporary history to become one of the truly outstanding students in the Bull Department. Deciding to major in Foreign Affairs, Tommy applied himself to his studies, and though taking more than the required courses, was always on the Supt ' s List and an active member of the Foreign Relations Club. Tommy was a forceful leader who was never satisfied with anything less than perfection. His perserverance and drive will make him a valued addition to the Naval Service. JEROME SCOTT BRANUM Jerry, coming from a Navy family, graduated from high school in Norfolk, Virginia, but claims the deep south as his home. Believing in the finer things in life, he never sweated the academic departments as his sights were set on the most famous of midship- man goals — graduation. On the athletic fields, his spirit, drive and will-to-win made him an outstanding member of the company football and battalion tennis teams. A more likeable guy would be hard to find as Jerry ' s personality traits, all blended together, formed the basis of a truly admirable character. Always having his eyes set on the wings of gold, Jerry will be a find addition to Navy Air WAYNE J. BRAUNSTEIN Wayne had attended a year of college before most of us were in high school. He came to the Academy via NAPS and quickly became known as the guy to see if you needed help on anything. " Stem ' s " activities included W3AD0 and the Gun Club. He had the oldest recordings in the Brigade and logged as many hours as was possible in the company wardroom. Except for swimming, athletics came naturally, and he was a member of one Brigade champion handball team. Devoting the majority of this time and energy to his Oceanography major, Wayne always stood near the top of the class. Wayne ' s enthusiasm and keen sense of humor will make him an instant success in the Fleet. GREGORY WILLIAM BRUBECK Greg, known to most of his classmates as Pele, came to the Academy from the Hoosier state. On the athletic fields his spirit and determination to win showed up as he won his ' N ' on the varsity soccer team and was the pride of the company basketball team. Academically he never had any problems taking each course in stride. Upon graduation, Greg would like to leave the Severn for flight school. No matter where he may go, Greg will be an asset to any organization, for his pleasant personality, soft spoken man- ners, and desire to give the best of himself at all times will always be welcome. 262 i iJ JOSEPH BERNARD CHOPEK Born in Suffern, New York, Joe was destined to make his mark in New Jersey. After attending grade school in Allendale, he was a National Science Foundation winner at Mahwah High School and president of his class. Academics were no problem, Joe wouldn ' t let them be. Opponents on the athletic fields were constantly amazed at Joe ' s ability, both physically and verbally. While acting as Regimental Adjutant during a Saturday evening formation, he so amazed the staff with his fantastic sword manual that the Regimental Commander walked past the OD in a daze without saluting. The fleet is certain to benefit from this many talented leader of men. LARRY DISTON COHEN Larry roared to the Academy fresh from two years at Daytona Beach Junior College and service in the Naval Air Reserve. From the first he was champion of numerous bull sessions in which he recounted his hilarious experiences in his hometown of Titusville, Florida. Larry is remembered for his participation in many good times like the Saturday nights the gang would invite themselves over to 179 Prince George Street. Larry was known for his competitive spirit on the athletic field as well as for his prowess in company volleyball, basketball and Softball. The same con- scientious attention to detail that made Larry a leader of our class IS sure to make him an outstanding asset to the Fleet. -? ' MICHAEL DALE CONRAD Born and raised in Hamilton, Ohio, Mike came to the Academy straight out of high school through a Congressional appointment, and applied himself immediately for the four years ahead. Besides playing Plebe soccer, Mike started hitting the books early in the year, and though he never made Supt ' s List, he was never far from It. Always a hustler in any sport, Mike vuas a great asset to the intramural fieldball, football, basketball, soccer and Softball teams that he played on. Even two broken legs during his playing career couldn ' t slow him down. Though Mike ' s future plans are uncer- tain, it can surely be said that he will save the skin of any field he enters. PHILIP OWNE CONTI After having been awarded athlete of the year at his high school, Phil came to the Academy to further his athletic career. Being an excellent wrestler, Phil has tied up in knots many an unwary and larger opponent. Phil ' s prowess, however, does not end with his athletic ability but is reflected in his excellent grades and class standing. Studying far into the night is not unusual for Phil who has maintained a keen desire to do well. Phil, however, finds some relief from the work-filled week on the weekends where he has proved himself to be quite a ladies man. All in all, the Navy will receive a very well-rounded man when Phil joins the Fleet. EDWIN BRYANT FINISON East Mecklenberg High School of Charlotte, North Carolina lost one of its finest student leaders when Ed (known by his accomplices as Finny) came to the mighty Severn. As a member of the Plebe squash team and as a standout on the company basket- ball team, Ed showed the athletic side of a well-rounded indi- vidual. As a plebe summer squad leader, his leadership potential was realized. What makes Ed the outstanding individual he is, is a natural ability to make friends by putting people at ease. Through the process of elimination, Ed seems bound for Navy line, but what ever his choice, all who know him predict a successful career. THOMAS R. GILLESPIE, II Tom was born and raised in Council Bluffs, Iowa. He went to the Air Force Academy Prep School directly out of high school and transferred to USNA on a Congressional appointment. His first year here at the Academy found him actively engaged in Plebe wrestling. Sticking to his sport, Tom earned his letter and an N against Army in his Youngster Year. When it came to sitting down and harnessing his tremendous reserve of energy, however, academics received the short end. His ability to get along well with others and his endless determination will carry him far in any field he chooses. 263 ANTHONY R. GRAHAM Tony, the latin lover, came to us from Managua, Nicaragua in Central America. Plebe year was a little hectrc for him because of the language difficulties but after a very short time of listening to the upper class use the standard naval vulgarisms, Tony caught on and became one of the guys. Tony ' s love for his native country seems to be his strongest virtue. Engineering and the politics of his country are his most important interests while here at the Acad- emy. Unlike most of his peers he has to fight off many beautiful damsels, definitely a problem to be envious of If his luck with women is any indication of how he will do in future enterprises, Tony will have a most successful life. JOHN DAVID HARRIS, JR. " Dean " is a true son of the Lone Star State. A man ' s man and no man ' s fool, he constantly plays hard and studies diligently. He can usually be found with the " men of Adonis " in the weight room or running circles around the opposition on the playing field. As poet laureate of the " Fightin ' Fifth " he can always be counted on for some profound, if not astute, opinions. Although born on the crest of a wave in Charleston, S.C, it could not be said that salt water runs through his veins unless it was suspended in C;H50H. Dean ' s idea of a well spent day was sixteen hours in the pad, four in the messhall and five in the wardroom. GLENN DOUGLAS LATTIG Arriving here from Hawthorne, New Jersey to pursue a lifelong dream of becoming a naval officer, Glenn ' s determination and hard work soon established him as one of the outstanding men in our class. His ranking in the top fifteen of the class academically was a source of great pride to all about him. Glenn also lent his talents and enthusiasm to a variety of sports, most prominently to the battalion football team as the starting fullback. His myriad interests carried over into other areas, especially one to which his roommate introduced him. A man of good humor and warm personality, Glenn ' s horizons are unlimited and his goals are high. His will be a valuable contribution to the Naval Service. CREIGHTON DAVID LILLY, JR. Being a Navy Junior, Dave has called many places home, but Rhode Island is his favorite. Dave ' s cheerful personality gained him many friends while at the Academy. Sports as well as acad- emics seemed no real challenge, as Dave was a regular on the Supt ' s List and gained fame as an All- American on the 150 pound football team. Dave ' s favorite extracurricular activity was blue and had white stripes and springs, but he was also active in the Scuba Club, Foreign Relations Club and the " N " Club. Dave ' s natural intelligence and outstanding motivation towards the Naval Service will surely lead him to a highly successful career in what ever branch he chooses. I GEORGE GARY MAXWELL Max IS a Navy Junior who calls Jax Beach his home. After reporting to USNA from his senior year at Marion, he gained the Superintendent ' s List. When not studying or at the card table, he could be found playing company football or Softball. He was a member of the Scuba Club and completed the instructors course after many early morning swims. Max was well known for the generous chow packages that he often received, but never tasted. He will be taking to the air after graduation and his generosity and determination will make him a welcomed figure wherever he goes. GARY RAYMOND POLANSKY Gary, a Navy Junior, hails from Sepulveda, California and after one year at college he bid farewell to campus life and joined the Brigade. He quickly found a place on the Plebe golf team and since then he has also participated in many company and battalion sports. Among his many interests at the Academy were the Ham Radio Club, the Pop Music Committee, airborne training and Meadeville, Pennsylvania. Although a good deal of his time was spent cursing the Weapons Department, he always managed to do well academically and was frequently called upon to help others. Gary ' s enthusiasm for the naval service, and his willingness to accept any challenge head on, will surely make him an asset to the fleet. 264 s I ROBERT E. RIERA Bobby graduated from Portsmouth Priory in Rhode Island and once at the Academy quickly established his reputation as a hard worker both w(th academics and company business. Being COMWARDROOM and arranger of parties extraordinaire still left Bob with plenty of time to iron his hair, contemplate the greatness of his Alma Mater, and eat, in which area he was the undisputed company champ. Grades were never a problem so Bob always had time for Sigma Pi Sign.a, his Science Club and for fixing anything and everything that might be broken. Bobby ' s great ability to make friends and lead them guaranteed a sure success in the fleet. JEFFREY LAWTON RIGGS The " Rigger " coming to the Academy from Kansas City, Missouri, soon discovered the hardships of plebe year. Although he could never be labeled a " slash, " Jeff learned to roll wi th the punches from the steam and skinny departments. His interest shifted from a minor in Engineering to a major in graduating. Jeff showed himself as a hard charger m sports by choosing to relieve his tensions on the football, fieldball, and rugby fields. Jeff is a very determined individual and takes the attitude that a job worth doing is worth doing well. With an eye on the Marine Corps, Jeff has cautiously surveyed all aspects of the military. No matter what his choice may be, he ' s sure to succeed in all his undertakings. CHARLES PAUL RUSH Charlie IS a native of Trumbull, Connecticut where he grad- uated from Trumbull High in 1965 and immediately entered the Naval Academy, where he started a second outstanding athletic career. He began with Plebe football and crew. His efforts won him a position in the varsity boat. As well as in sports, Charlie ' s efforts were well rewarded in academics where he increased his QPR almost every semester. This was the result of his genuine and absorbing interest in his major field. Oceanography. Although most of his time was occupied by crew practice, Charlie never failed to impress everyone with the beauty and class of his drags. Charlie ' s graduation will provide the service with an officer of great spirit and desire. JOHN DICK SNAKENBERG Snake came from the tail corn country right out of high school. Plebe year was easy because Snake could laugh at any occasion. Girls were a big problem. Carefully laid plans of con- quest of the fair sex quite often went astray. A wrestler in high school. Snake tried out for the plebe team, but soon learned that one or two people on the East Coast could wrestle too. A desire for the Marine Corps subjected him to much ribbing, but the Corps will soon have a lifer that they can be proud of. GUY HOWARD STEVENS, JR. " Steve. " a loyal native son of Maine, came to the Academy fresh from High School and quickly established a reputation for excellence both in academics where his major was aero and in athletics where he excelled on batt football and company basket- ball and Softball squads. Steve was well known for his staunch support of the Boston Celtics and the Red Sox. His quest after the fairer sex was often the subject of many hilarious anecdotes but was nearly always successful and Steve was well known for his winning ways with the ladies. Steve ' s hard working, hard playing ways made him many friends at USNA and will serve to make him a great asset to the Naval Service. RALPH HESTON STOLL Ralph, a tMavy junior, arrived in An napolis after preping at Severn School in Severna Park, Maryland. His desire to excel was manifested in his consistent standing on the Dean ' s and Super- intendent ' s Lists as well as involvement in numerous extra- curricular activities. When not sleeping or studying, he could usually be found sailing for the varsity sailing team or training for the long distance ocean races which occupied his leaves every summer. Undaunted by a run in with physical chemistry during second class year, Ralph avidly pursued his interest in the sciences, majoring in Applied Science and minoring in his little black book. A man of warmth and understanding, Ralph will make his worth- while contribution to the Naval Service with " a tall ship and a star to steer her by " t i I g PAUL A. SWANSON Paul came to the Academy from the beaches of California after a year at NAPS. Coming from NAPS Paul had a jump on Plebe year when he arrived, but being forced to sit on training tables for three sets really made it tough . Actually he accepted and con- quered all challenges the Academy could offer. While making Superintendent ' s List several times he also had time to throw the hammer on both the indoor and outdoor varsity track teams. Even with all his activities, Paul was always willing to help a classmate at any time. His considerations for others and his personal drive will certainly stand him in good stead when he trades his surfboard in on a destroyer. ARTHUR FREDERICK UHLEMEYER One of Mother B ' s most cheerful children, Chip came to call USNA home 13 days after graduating from high school in St. Louis, Missouri. This grand institution and Uhle have never been the same. Of course, the Navy way always wins, but Chip has forced out brighter days for all those who came in contact with him through sheer, undauntable personality. Although his restless energy takes unique avenues, he has added to his list of honors, achievement in academics (Dean ' s and Superintendent ' s ListsI and active participation in the Foreign Affairs Club and Naval Acad- emy Foreign Affairs Conference. Undoubtedly, whichever branch of the service claims Chip will be a livelier place than before. DAVID GEORGE VETTER Upon graduation from Taft High School, Chicago, Illinois, Dave came to the Academy to play football The " Toe " had an outstanding year kicking for the Plebe team. However, after easing through the first year, Dave devoted his time to studies and extracurricular activities in place of football. After two years of being business manager for the Pop Music Concert Committee, he was elected chairman in his last year. He was also an active member of the Antiphonal Choir. Dave has been enthusiastic about every phase of Academy life, which should carry over into his Naval Career. GEORGE FREDERICWENCHEL George arrived an hour early for his first day at USNA and thereafter did his best to spend as much time on liberty as possible. Living forty minutes from USNA towards DC, George has been known to disappear in a jazz place in Georgetown only to reappear a few days later snapping his fingers in time to a distant beat. Plebe summer he was told that he looked like an ogre and the name has stuck ever since. Ogre has participated in wrestling and company sailing every year. He has also been his company NACA representative for the past two years. George was sold on air at Pensacola during 2 c Summer and he plans to fly upon graduation. 266 6th Company FALL SET: CDR: R.

Army party for many was at Doc M ' s in Philly and June Week brought many engagements. First Class year brought the leadership and guidance of Joe and Bonnie. Army weekend found us at the Holiday Inn of Deepwater where we initiated the traditional 6th Company Rally! Steve and Dave left us, and for the remainder of the year a rally was held almost weekly at Uncle Tom ' s Cabin, Lake Leisure, Bowie or O ' Connors. The Coast Button is pushed - ending as we began.

JOHN CRAIG BATHGATE Craig came from the sand and surf of Southern California to the cold stone walls of Bancroft Hall ready to face any obstacle conceived by the various departments at USNA. Never one to let academics interfere with pad time, Craig managed to keep his head above water. Weekends would find him in town advertising for the Log, or dragging his current O.A.O. Very sincere, likeable, with a great sense of humor, Craig found many friends among the Bri- gade. With his unbounded enthusiasm for professional subjects and his quality of dedicated perserverance to any assigned task, Craig should go far in the Naval Service. MICHAEL FRANK BOYER Mike found adjustment from farm life in Nebraska to the big city in Annapolis very easy. Plebe summer turned out to be no more strenuous than chores at home; Plebe year only a nuisance. The academic stars that became a regular part of his uniform were his ticket to the Sigma Pi Sigma. For afternoon exercise Mike resorted to rugby and fieldball. Mike never missed a Drum and Bugle Corps road trip and the chance to increase the size of his harem. Speed seemed to be the key word in his ambitions — fast cars, airplanes and girls. Success will be no stranger for his imag- inative personality will find a place in any field of endeavor. t ROBERT DAVID CLARKE Born in Pennsylvania, Dave has long claimed loyalty to Atlanta, capital of the Cracker State. Dave found plebe year an interesting experience and is probably one of the few plebes guided the entire year by squad leaders who were five year men. Never the conformist however, Dave decided it would be much easier to handle the regular four year program and still get all the weekend play necessary to satisfy his appetite for beautiful female companionship. Fall always found Dave getting ready for a big Drum and Bugle Corps football show on an away trip. Wherever the winds of life lead Dave, there is no doubt that beautiful women, hard work, and success there also shall be. RICHARD MICHAEL DEMPSEY An Army junior, " Demps " came to USNA right out of high school. Having rowed in high school, Hubbard Hall became his second home as he spent all three sport sets rowing for God, Country and Navy. Bubbling over with self confidence Demps was never one to let an hour go by without alluding to his greatness. Studies came easy for him and he was always overloading a course or two trying to get ahead. A hard worker both on and off the water. Rick will be an asset to any branch of the naval service that he chooses. WILLIAM YORK FRENTZEL, II After spending one plebe year as a Texas Aggie, " Fish, " Bill attacked his second with cheerful enthusiasm. He pursued a double major in Electronics and in Russian, maintained excellent grades, and shot on the plebe rifle team. His many varied interests included chess, ham radio, tennis, and professional subjects. Any v ' eekend one might find him diligently working on an advanced electronics problem, reading Russian poetry to his roommate, or relaxing with his twelve-string guitar. Bill believes that a job worth doing is worth doing well. His perseverance, his ability to solve problems quickly and logically, and his insistence on personal excellence will stand him in good stead throughout his life. RICHARD DALE GANO Rich, who calls Pensacola, Florida home, came to the Academy from high school. His interests include private flying, fishing and the floating part of our Navy which explains his membership on the YP Squadron. His facility with the Luce Hall routine and the " Destroyerman " sign on his door plate. A perennial member of the Superintendent ' s and occasionally the Dean ' s Lists. Rich some- times professes to an intense desire to dig ditches rather than study. The company fieldball team manages to keep him well supplied with bruises during the winter months A Navy junior. Rich plans to continue his relationship with the Navy in a career status. 269 ROBERT MARTIN GRAY Bob came to the Naval Academy after a year at NAPS and a year as a missile tech. Through his past experiences Bob had gained some valuable knowledge in many fields and was always willing to share this knowledge. With his ready smile and pleasant personality " Greb " became well known to many members of the Brigade. Although no academic genius. Bob applied himself dil- igently and was always tops in his management class. In sports, |ust as in academics. Bob worked hard and earned the nickname " The Lansford Flash. " It was a rare afternoon that Bob wasn ' t over at the gym working out. Wherever Bob goes, he will leave his mark and those who meet him will be better off because of him. THOMAS EUGENE HALWACHS Tom came to the Naval Academy as a Navy Junior from California. He had no trouble adjusting to the rugged life of the Naval Academy. Tom was not satisfied with just being an ordinary midshipman. In between organizing Christmas charters to Seattle and reconstructing WRNV, he still had time to participate in the Photo Club and W3AD0. " Uncle Tom " will be missed most by the Executive Department and their need for him to set up sound equipment for pep rallies and speaking engagements. Tom will be remembered mostly for his amazing academic recoveries during finals. Tom ' s love for adventure and excitement will make him a success in whatever service career he might choose JONATHAN TRUMBULL HINE, JR. " Jovial JT " arrived at the Academy having spent his last nine years in Italy. One was at once impressed by his easy outgoing personality and his genuine enthusiasm for Academy life. JT ' s real ability lay in " bull " and " dago. " Second class year he received an outstanding letter of commendation for his Italian language re- search project on Italian Communism. JT was perhaps best known for his many and varied " ECA ' s " ranging from the Christmas Card Committee to the YP and Sailing Squadrons. Possessing a mar- velous sense of humor and the ability to smile in the face of adversity, JT will make an outstanding Naval Officer. STEVEN ADAM HUDOCK " Huds, " a Marine Junior, claims Annandale, Virginia, as his home. When ice docked the YP Squadron, Steve was then found shooting with the Plebe rifle team which won the 1966 freshman championship. After he accomplished the varsity to Camp Perry that summer, proficiency kept him with the team for three years and brought him his " N " . When not shooting with the team or Gun Club, he could be found " trudging the track " keeping in shape for the all too frequent running tests. Between the rare weekends he did not drag and his lettering activities (both Black and Goldll, he still found time to hit the books. An organizer with determination and a dynamic personality, Steve will be a credit to his country ' s Armed Forces. WILLIAM DAVID HURLEY " I plan to go to the Naval Academy, " Hurls always told his high school classmates. Suiting action to the words, he came straight to Navy after graduating as top man in his class from St. Mary ' s International School in Tokyo. With the same ease and dispatch with which he had scaled Mt. Fuji and assisted his father as Naval Attache to Japan, Hurls emerged from the rigors of Plebe year on the Dean ' s and Superintendent ' s Lists. He has combined his dedication to the Navy and continuing academic achievements with an enthusiasm for dragging, weightlifting and a penchant for partying. His own high standards and perseverance will help him make a meaningful contribution to the Navy and his country. STEVEN ANDREW KAPLAN Steve came to the Naval Academy from the Garden State of New Jersey. Among the varied interests he brought along with him, including sports, listening to good music and his tastes for spicy foods, most outstanding was his love for basketball. Almost any afternoon in the spring or fall, Steve could be found in the Field House either working out in a scrimmage or just shooting baskets, and he spent two winters playing with the varsity. He became noted for his keen competitive spirit and desire to win. These qualities should help Steve succeed in anything he attempts. 270 I! N KENNETH WAYNE KOCH Ken came to the Naval Academy straight from high school in Wharton, Texas and immediatelv began to demonstrate those statesmanlike qualities that have made Texans world renowned. Ken was always a valuable asset on the athletic field, where he excelled in football. However, he was best known as a fierce competitor m swimming, always willing to donate a few days each week to the sub squad. He never let academics interfere with his love for sleeping, maximizing pad time and still maintaining pass- ing grades. Ken ' s friendly personality and cheerful attitude will serve him well in his career as a Naval officer. JERRY DEAN KOLMAN Jerry came from a little city in Kansas by the name of Morrow- ville and brought with him a smile, a laugh, and a personality as big as the expanse of land from which he came. He found that his talents of getting along with people could best be utilized in a minor in Management. In addition, to his academic load, Jerry found the time for the Glee Club and Chapel Choir. He could usually be found late in the afternoon playing his favorite sports, Softball, soccer and how about swimming! Jerry is considered by all to be a well rounded individual worthy of his nickname " Teddy Bear. " DONALD COLIN KOSLOFF The Hell ' s Angels lost a potential member when " Koz " ac- cepted his appointment and bought Navy blues instead of leathers. Fresh from a shortened summer of Northern California sunshine, water-skiing, and girl-chasing, Don immediately put his vast nauti- cal experience, gained from watching " Men of Annapolis " and " Victory at Sea " to work. Never one for the books, the " Russian " could often be found at two in the morning typing three week late term papers, or, during more leisurely times, trying to figure how to beat Wall Street, blissfully unaware that money was a prerequi- site. Koz will be remembered most for his easy-going personality, keen professionalism, and famous, annual " Koz leaves " ending an hour or so after everyone elses. EDWARD M. LEONARD Hailing from that Gulf city of Biloxi, Mississippi, Mike (alias Leo the Lion or Stump) came to the Academy ready to conquer it. Athletically well-endowed he starred on a championship soccer team and led his lightweight football team to many victories. After a low start Plebe year in academics he was able through concen- trated effort, to raise his class standing hundreds of places. A constant source of delight to all with his imitations and jokes, he won the friendship of a good share of the Brigade. His amiability and dedication to the job at hand mark him as a man destined to do well in his chosen career. 1 V I ft ROBERT JOHN LOGAN Bob came to USNA straight from LaSalle High in the " City of Brotherly Love " . Academics were no problem to him so he was able to spend most of his time playing basketball and sleeping. His athletic abilities proved him to be a tough competitor in any sport he played. Being from Philly, " Logs " was able to throw some great parties everytime the Brigade was there. Party time was also much enjoyed by this witty " mover " who was able to supply many with laughs and surprises while partying. A natural leader, his academic abilities and dedication will take him far in the Naval Service. I EDWIN HAROLD McMAHON, JR. The Democrats of Chicago lost a favorite son when Mac accept- ed his appointment to the Naval Academy. Coming fresh out of high school, Ed made many friends due to his easygoing personal- ity and unashamed, good natured naivete. Never being one to place much emphasis on spit and polish, Mac spent his free time on the touch football field, Softball diamond, or in the pad in an indefatigable struggle to fight fatigue. Mac ' s weekend jaunts to Chicago will long endure in the record books. A quick wit and quiet determination are certain to find him a success in his chosen career. DAVID FIDEL MONTOYA Dave, a native of Santa Fe, New Mexico, came to the Naval Academy with a head start on the Navy being in the reserves for two years. He became affectionately known as the " Mexican " and could always be counted on for a humorous time. With his many and varied interests it is a wonder how he managed to keep his head above water in academics, not to mention his being a well known swimmer. Dave will best be remembered for his melodious voice and strong hand on the " Bass " as a member of the Out- riggers. With his quick wit and unending humor the " Mexican " should have little trouble in the Navy. I r PAUL FRANCIS ROSS After two years active service in the Fleet, with a year at NAPS, Paul decided the Navy looked like the life. He entered the Academy and took up sailing. A virtual one-man crew, Paul spent most every weekend during the fall and spring sets out on the Chesapeake. When he wasn ' t sailing, Paul was busy lending his talents to whatever activity happened to strike his fancy, be it tennis, basketball, swimming or just having a good time, and good times were always better with Paul around, for he could always be counted on to do the unusual. Paul ' s gentlemanly manner and dedication will assure contin ued success after graduation. LAWRENCE MARTIN SCHADEGG Coming from Anoka, Minnesota, Larry found a way to fulfill his dream. After a semester at the University of Minnesota, some time in the Fleet and NAPS, he arrived at the Academy to satisfy his desire to prepare for flight training. His devotion to athletics, running cross country, indoor and outdoor track, and to the academics, being on the Supt ' s List nearly every semester, as well as gracing the Dean ' s List occasionally, should give an indication of his desire to fulfill his dream. Realizing the need to maintain the proper social graces, Larry cultivated the companionship of a local beauty. Hardly a weekend was spent in good ol ' Mother B. His drive and unequaled desire to excel should hold him in good stead when he reports into the fleet. 272 JOHN SCULLY John came to us from the shores of Lake Michigan and the " Windy City. " Well liked by ail and a leader in his class from the start, " Sculls " continued his success through the four years. As a regular member of the Superintendent ' s List, his lights could always be found burning late into the night. John excelled in boxing and after several successful seasons switched to lead our company soccer team to a Regimental Championship. John ' s de- termination and willingness to work should be valuable assets towards achievement of success in his chosen career. STEPHEN STANLY SHUMLAS Steve, better known as " Shums " came to Navy directly from Bloomfield High School in New Jersey. He will be remembered as a dago slash, studying French and completing a Spanish and Portuguese minor while at the Academy. Despite the curve balls thrown to him by the Science and Math Departments, he main- tained a good grade average. His ability in soccer lent great support to the company team and his interest in boxing was matched only by his interest in competitive pistol shooting. His extra-curricular activities include the Portuguese Club, the YP Squadron, and attending airborne school where he earned his silver wings. His will to win and determination are sure to make him a success in the Naval Service. i EDWARD JOSEPH WAITT, JR. The state of Massachusetts lost one of its best embalmer ' s apprentices when Ed accepted his appointment to the Academy. He was better known as " Mort, " short for mortician, because of his former " profession " and his morbid sense of humor. Con- stantly a bug on physical fitness, he could always be seen running on the rocks of the seawall, hoping to fall. Nothing could compare with Mort ' s ability with the books, and his high class standing proved it. Upon graduation, all of us will definitely miss Mort and his entertaining personality. No matter what career Ed chooses, he will definitely be a success and the success he attains will never approach that which he deserves. PAUL GREGORY WARNER " Warns " started his professional career with a twenty mile drive from nearby Lanham, a convenient distance for Saturday night liberty. Rapidly becoming aware of the rigorous required standards, he made a conscientious effort to uphold them — delving into concentrated studies of Navy wool blankets and sliding bottom boxes. On the playing field, he became known as a serious sportsman, taking defeat heavily and savoring success. Supplied with a quick wit and warm humor, " Warns " had little trouble making friends and is a sure bet to build upon the responsiblities experienced during his four year stay. Whatever field Paul chooses to enter, his custom of looking ever toward the future can only result in sought after and well deserved success. ¥ RICHARD GROVER WARREN Dickie, who hails from Cleves, Ohio, abandoned his " scalpel and stethoscope " ambitions to become a sailor. A high school honor student, he continued in his academic ways, avoiding the many temptations of college social life and managing to be a consistent member of the Superintendent ' s and Dean ' s Lists. After excelling on the plebe swimming team, Dickie retired to the easy life of intramurals where he participated in basketball, football, swimming, and the blue trampoline. Known for his great personal appearance, he was a guiding light for the young chargers. Dickie will be an asset to any branch of the service. SCOTT GORDON WIGGETT Scott came to the Naval Academy from the Green Mountains of Randolph, Vermont. Among the varied interests he brought with him including hunting, fishing, scuba diving, and guitar play- ing, most prominent was his love for the game of basketball. Almost every afternoon Scott could be found in the gym either in a fast and furious scrimmage, or just shooting baskets. He became well known for his highly competitive spirit, his desire to win, and his keen sense of fair play whether on the basketball court or off. These qualities will make Scott a valuable asset in any field he chooses. 273 FALL SET: BATT-CDR: M. K. Johannsen; SUB-CDR: R. J. Amundson; OPS: J. M. Cochrane; ADJ: W. R. Garland, SUPPLY OFF; E. D.

Besides being a favorite hang-out for rise and shine OOW ' s, " Sweat 7 " is also famous for two Trident Scholars. A host of varsity athletes and the best wardroom in the Brigade. It also boasts such notables as a " little theater, " a garden club, a committee, a rambler rogue, and a 5-drawer file cabinet. During the year, men from 7 have been well represented in the Masqueraders, the Hop Committees, the Y.P. Squadron and the Academic Board. In addition, a normal weekend can find various 7th Company men at the Palomino, at the Lone Star in Easton, or in the OOW shack in civvies. As ' 69 turns over the bubble to ' 70, we leave the mayor, the Rev, and the wobbly-legged chair. It ' s been real! SPRING SET: CO. CDR R, A Ahrens; SUBCDR: S. W. McHenry; CPO: M. J. Haddon. 7th COMPANY OFFICER LT J. R. Harris, USN ROBERT ALLEN AHRENS The summer of ' 65 saw Bob entering via Evergreen Park High School, Evergreen Park, IINnois. The company didn ' t get to see too much of Bob ' s ever present good personahty Plebe Summer but the nurses at the hospital sure did while the doctors tried to fix his back. They did a fine job as Bob went on to anchor the Varsity Wrestling Team. An instant winner with the women and never one to pass up a party he also had a serious side. Whether on the mat, in the classroom or accepting responsibility Bob always did a good job. His competitive spirit, his desire and his winning personality will surely add to the fleet. ROBERT JAMES AMUNDSON The pride and joy of Clear Lake, South Dakota, came to Navy after a year at S.D.S.U. Well liked and easy-going, " Mudson " failed to go easy on himself as he proceeded to elect eight courses per semester. However, his name appeared on virtually every Supt ' s and Dean ' s List ever printed during his stay at Navy, not to mention how close it came to the very top of the class. Fearing he would have too much time to study. Mud quickly became an integral part of the Chapel Choir and Glee Club while in the winter months, he busied himself with the duties of Varsity Basketball Manager. Earmarked for a Ph.D., Bob plans to do graduate work in Nuclear Physics. ERIC DONALD BRIES Eric left the farm in Green Bay, Wisconsin after graduating from high school and came to USNA to find a new kind of life. Soon after gaining his sea legs on Youngster cruise, he mysterious- ly acquired the nickname " Hi-Brieser. " Having chosen to study Aerospace Engineering, the Hi-Brieser spent many hours in the library studying curves and lines of various types. Eric was chosen by his company classmates to be their representative on the Honor Committee and he spent several hours working for it. The Hi- Brieser liked to play hard as well as work hard, he participated on intramural teams in cross country, fieldball and rugby. Noted for his common s ense and practicality, Eric will be a welcome addition to the fleet. JOHN CHARLES BROOME Johnny, a Navy junior to the nth degree, graduated from high school in South Carolina as valedictorian of his class. Entering with the Class of ' 67, he quickly saw the light, although maybe not in conjunction with a textbook, and wisely matriculated to become a true ' 69er. Such was the dedication to purpose that had to be conquered to stop him short of his goal of graduation. After another plebe year, he became well adjusted to his horizontal office and bewildered classmates at his endurance in " the pad. " " Sweeper " is characterized by his slow southern speech. Confed- erate flag and a constant search for humor in life and he will be a welcome addition to any wardroom in the fleet. SPENCER LEO GARRETT This " old salt " of Maryland ' s Eastern Shore vaulted into Naval Academy life after a grueling year at NAPS. His closest friends called him " The Gopher " because he was either burying an oppo- nent under a Navy wrestling mat or eating dust on the Rugby Field. There seemed to be very little to disturb " easy-going " Spence. There was, however, one aspect of Academy life which always seemed to amaze him — his minor. Never really tasting the sweetness of bachelorhood while at the Academy, Spence plans to get married upon graduation and then devote his life to a distin- guished career in the Navy. With his peace of mind and back- ground Spence will make a fine naval officer. MICHAEL JAMES HADDON Straight from the " gateway to the West " Mike came, ready for a satisfying career in the Navy. Having had six stripes during his military high school days, Mike was content to make the " pad- monster " his almost constant companion. His waking hours were filled with the study of economics which is his major field of academic endeavor. Mike displayed his athletic abilities in com- pany soccer, Softball and especially football where his one-handed end-zone grabs were feared throughout the Brigade. Spreading good will throughout the company was always one of Mike ' s favorite pastimes. With such outstanding motivation and great ambition, Mike has a fine career ahead of him and should be able to attain anything for which he has aspirations, 278 SIMON ABRAM HERSHON Entering the Academy directly from Teaneck High School, Si ' s New Jersey accent and his " if not, why not " mind found them- selves rapidly placed near the top of his class. Somehow finding time to study while playing varsity soccer, batt tennis, and com- pany football, besides serving on several class committees, " Seich " has been a consistent member of the Supt ' s and Dean ' s lists. Though one of the " Shaft Alley Boys " since Youngster year. Si found that he had to desert them considerably as a firstie in order to baby sit a linear accelerator in D.C. for his Trident scholarship in applied science. It ' s no holds barred as Simon aims toward a graduate degree in California and a position in the Silent Service. JOHN WILLIAM JACOBS Coming from sunny California and the son of a career naval officer, John was no stranger to the Navy or to Navy life when he came to the Academy. Very few know as much professionally as John. He took part in such sports as tennis, plebe pistol and became proficient on the trampoline. Never a slouch academically, John spent many hard hours hitting the books and gathering gouge. The one characteristic most attributable to ' Jake " is his friendliness and good nature. Following the drift of his conver- sation can be a little difficult at times, but his smile and easy laugh make him a fine addition to our fleet. FRED WILEY JONES Fred came to Annapolis straight from Welch High School in West Virginia. He settled down to the books Plebe year and won stars for his effort. After the confinement of Plebe year, however, he found that there are more things to life than books. Known to his friends as the " Fox " , he quickly got into the swing of dragging and charming the young ladies with his southern drawl. The Fox was also adept at games of chance not only with cards but also with the Executive Department who presented him with a " Black N " award for one of his many escapades. Fred, with his congenial southern manner, will be welcome in any wardroom. GEORGE WALTER JURAND George probably left his home in Cleveland, Ohio wondering what was in store for him. Although his good natured character made him a failure as a cynic, " Grumpy " could often find a choice word for anything. Not one to take life easy, George was a regular on the Superintendent ' s List and became well known for his heroics in battalion football, rugby and fieldball — be it key tackle or a fruitless dive into the dirt. Not one to be put down by the fairer sex, he quickly learned that the whole world wasn ' t just for studying. DOUGLAS VINCENT LIEBSCHNER Coming from Alaska, Lebanon, Vtrginia. New York and fmally New Jersey, Leebsch divided his vast talents among company sports, Spanish classes and letter writing. He became expert at all three. Doug could be counted on to excel at those courses he liked and to make valiant last minute stands in those he didn ' t. But somehow in the end, no matter what the courses involved were, Spanish came out on top. A confirmed Navy junior Doug upheld the highest traditions no matter what color the battlefield. With a winning smile, easy going manner and a desire to get ahead there is no doubt that Doug will be a success no matter what field he chooses. RICHARD WAYNE LONG Dick ' s " civilian " honeymoon was over when he made his way to Annapolis, but no one would ever know it. Being a native of nearby Catonsville he arrived on that rainy June afternoon with a toothbrush, a lacrosse stick and a remarkable set of qualities. His sense of humor and quick wit were always in evidence as was Dick ' s ability to cooly calculate the precise amount of academic effort needed to survive. Although he carried a company football in the winter his first love was lacrosse which he played three years on " Bildie ' s " unbeatable ten. Being remembered for his stmt on the plebe detail, his easy going nature and pleasant personality will make Dick a capable officer and certain success. STEPHEN WESLEY McHENRY " All me bloomin ' life. Sir " was Steve ' s reply when first asked how long he ' d been in the Navy and that was the truth ' A Navy Junior, Steve joined the Navy in ' 62, attended Communications School in California, and spent some time in Japan before report- ing to NAPS. Steve came to the Academy with the Class of ' 68 but switched to the Class of ' 69 so he could take advantage of the five year plan. He found himself to be the " old salt " among his new classmates and will long be remembered for his sea stories. Steve knows the Navy well and can be counted on to get a job done. The fleet will be glad to see him again. RAYMOND JOHN MORRIS, JR. June of 1965 found Ray at the Naval Academy fresh from Nashville and high school, and one of the most likeable guys around. The next four years proved " Bear " worthy of the best and capable of the most spontaneous. From small time investment and half-time romances to full-time academics. Bear could be de- pended upon for the unpredicted, unprecedented, and always hilarious. Ray proved himself a worthy competitor on the athletic field with an appetite to match in the messhall. Spring always found him with the first suntan in the company and the tighest squeeze into whites. Ray ' s a fine guy with a bright future who ' s always a good time and a great friend. RONALD RAYMOND MUELLER Coming all the way from Sioux City, Iowa to meet the big blue waters for the first time, " Mules " soon found that the Oath of Office entailed more than first met the eye. Ron always managed to brighten some of our darkest days with a little humor. By the end of Youngster Year, Mules had asserted his claim to a B.S. degree by successfully statementing his way out of several Forms 2. Later in his career at USNA, when his classmates dreaded the mud of Little Creek, Ron could honestly say he loved it ' Ron has taken his commitment to his God and to his Country seriously and can be counted on to shed some light wherever he goes. JOHN FREDERIC OHLINGER Arriving at " Canoe U " three days after graduation from high school, " Blue and Gold " quickly adjusted to the rigors of midship- men life. After " freshman " year, with a natural ability to get along with others and an unusual supply of spirit and energy, he easily made many friends. Having to work for his grades, he holds many dubious academic awards and records which occasionally led to an anxious moment during finals, but John always managed to rise for the occasion. He maintained an exuberance in social activities and his search for the depth of life led into many an " O-Club " bar and many a young lady ' s heart. In the years ahead, his warm smile, refreshing outlook on life, and laugh will be remembered wherever John travels. 280 GREGORY FRANCIS QUILLINAN The Quill came to USNA from Marmion Military Academy with a background of grease and grades, and has worked hard at maintaining both. While wearing stars, he is actively participating in Russian Club, Masqueraders and several other extracurricular activities. He has a unique ability to see something funny in almost everything. Not one to let it get him down, he keeps his sense of humor, and always has a good word for someone. It ' s a sure thing that Greg will make a fine officer in what ever field he chooses. He never misses a chance. JACK ROBERT STEERE After a year at the University of Arizona, " J. R. " tried for four years to create a party school image at the Naval Academy. Being a part time amateur aviator himself. Jack was a virtual walking encyclopedia when it came to facts concerning aviation. His inter- est in aviation coupled with his businessmanlike attitude lead to the organization of the famed California Charter. His travels from coast to coast proved to be his most enjoyable pastime. Upon graduation Jack intends to tackle the whole Navy. His enterprising attitude will undoubtedly make him exceptionally successful at any challenge. FRANK ERNEST STENSTROM Frank, an army brat from Lawton, Oklahoma, came to the Naval Academy after a year at Cameron College. A standout on the varsity rifle team for three years, he was chosen team captain his final year at Navy. Combining a quiet personality with a warm smile he won many friends at the Academy. Not an ungainly person when it came to the opposite sex either, Frank was able to count on a date wherever he went. Caught in the clutches of the Aero Department, he worked hard during the week but never let academics get him down on weekends. With his outstanding atti- tude and personality, Frank will always be a credit to the Naval Service and the Naval Academy. DAVID CHRISTIE THOMAS Dave learned quickly to leave his correct leave address even before he set foot in these hallowed halls. It seems he was truant the day his notification of appointment reached Falls Church High School in Falls Church, Virginia. " D. C. " quickly got into the thick of things as he went on to win the Brigade wrestling championship in the 137 class Plebe Summer. Bored with pushover opponents he found an appropriate match with the arrival of the first academic semester. It is said that the academic department came the closest to defeating him. A Navy Junior, Dave can tell stories of adventure from Paris to his own backyard with an extroverted laughter that will insure him of a happy future with many friends. THOMAS PHILIP TONDEN Carneys Point, New Jersey harbored " T, P " until Navy gave him a harbor of his own. Although quite successful in the acad- emic world, Tom found himself in uncharted water when con- fronted with navigation. So unusual were his navigational skills, that he was dubbed " Prince " after that famous seaman. Prince Henry. Not one to be beaten, Tom went down to the sea in Y.P. ' s to prove himself worthy of his alias. He thoroughly enjoyed playing company volleyball, football and Softball, although noth- ing seemed to please him more than a well heated, controversial discussion. Tom ' s good nature, sincerity and perseverance will be valuable assets in what ever goals he pursues. PAUL CHARLES TSAMTSIS " The Grook " was one week out of high schol in Nashua, New Hampshire when he reported to Navy. He arrived bearing only a pronounced New England accent and one of the most amiable personalities in the class. He finally taught himself to say " park " instead of " paak, " but four years of battling the system have not put the slightest scratch in his good nature. It would be impossible to list all of Paul ' s extracurricular activities, however, most of us will remember him for the outstanding job he did as Chairman of our Ring Dance Committee. Above all, Paul is a man whom onr can be proud to call a classmate. RAY McKENNA UMBARGER " Rhumbo " , hailing from the suburbs of Philadelphia, came directly to Annapolis out of high school. He immediately began to apply his athletic and academic talents for the benefit of the Navy. He distinguished himself as a left-handed pitcher on the baseball diamond, but his greatest accomplishments were achieved in the classroom. After three years of hard, diligent study Ray received word that he would never have to take another " Bull " course. He had been awarded a Trident Scholarship in Aeronautical Engineer- ing. Ray was also known as one of the best tenors in the history of the Glee Club. Ray has the ability to succeed in the Navy or civilian life, whichever he finds more to his liking. RICHARD JAMES VELTMAN Rick came to USNA with a twinkle in his eye: he ' d finally made it out of NAPS. A Chicagoan, he had to make only a few adjustments when he came to Annapolis - notably on his guitar, which he ' s been adjusting ever since! He ' s always smiling — from pleasure, from amazement or simply from the results of some quiz. He ' s had a few problems timing his quizzes — not to mention his smiles — but neither have been able to get him down. Though there are bags under his eyes now, the twinkle ' s still there. He ' ll be a welcome addition to any fleet. WILLIAM BOB WOOD, JR. Woody, a native Texan from Austin, considers one of his greatest failings m life as not having developed a Lone-Star accent. He attributes this imperfection to a period of expatriation in D.C. during his formative years. A true organizer with a mind geared for a good time. Woody has been responsible for so much of the company ' s spirit. No matter what his mood, he ' s friendly and outgoing to others. An accomplished banjo strummer, he ' s kept himself busy with choir, Masqueraders, photography, painting and work with the Ring Dance, f rom a seaman on YP ' s plebe year, he made the hard climb to CO. The short long-tall Texan is a guy anyone would be proud to call friend. 282 i« 8th Company . .« : v - oS FALL SET: CDR; J. E. Code; SUB-CDR: R. F. Cuccias, Jr.; CPO: J P. Culet. The close knit 8th Company began the year with a party at Aida ' s. This set the festive trend that was to be characteristic of the year to come. After several weekend nights at Rip ' s and Lido ' s, the company had an outstanding Army party. Then, after first semester exams, we got together for a skiing weekend at Seven Springs. Immediately after that, we all met once more for the Ac-Board.

His time was divided just about equally between preparing for class and bulking up for football. He was also a stand-out perform- er on the company basketball team. Mike ' s perseverance and hard work paid off in everything he attempted. Never one to complain, he always managed to see the brighter side of anything. Always interested in oceanography, Mike can ' t wait to put his knowledge to good use. Of special interest to him was the forecasting of breakers and surf and beach forms. Mike still hasn ' t decided for sure what branch of the Navy he will enter after graduation. After much careful deliberation he will probably flip a coin on the big night. HOWARD R. BACHARACH Howie arrived at the Academy from Phoenix. Arizona. Never one to be unheard from, Howard quickly became an integral part of his company. Wherever a party or good time was to be found, Howard could be expected to be there contributing his utmost to its success. He could also be expected to contribute the the various activities of his company. He was a member of the company ' s slow pitch Softball team as well as the company ' s lightweight football team. In the fall one could usually find Howard over at the golf course. His leadership ability will undoubtedly carry over into the fleet, where the Navy will greatly benefit from his presence. OLIVER ALFRED BOUCHER Ollie, as known to most, exemplified the utmost in spirit, both on the track and in his association with others. He set his stan- dards high; in track, he totaled more than double the points necessary for his varsity ' N ' in the mile relay; in the company, his active participation in all affairs lent strongly to their success. Ollie ' s wholehearted effort and subtle enthusiasm were ever pre- sent throughout his four years at the Naval Academy. Though academics often gave Ollie a difficult time, his perseverance and intense effort saw him through with well above a 2.0 cumulative QPR. Ollie ' s competent judgment and high motivation can only lead to a successful and esteemed career as a Naval Officer. BOBBY WAYNE CARVER After spending a year at Greensboro College in his home state of North Carolina, B. W. brought about two years of USNR time to Severn U. Overcoming the " downs " of Plebe year, he found ' life " somewhat better the next three. Devoted to company sports, he applied himself in football, soccer, Softball and sailing. B W. divided his time among books, the pad, dragging, and the phones — in that order. Never one to really sweat the system, B. W. never worried about stars, finding that he could devote most of his time to his management minor and holding his own in " core " courses. Wayne ' s resourcefulness will certainly make him a credit to his service. ALFRED LOUIS CIPRIANI Majoring in Aeronautical Engineering, A! found his time to be well occupied. One of the major consumers of Al ' s time has been his intense interest in debate. A carry over from his high school days, he found debate extremely rewarding an an excellent oppor- tunity to develop organizational ability. Al has received several awards for his speaking while the climax of his achievements came in his election as president of the debate team. While satisfying his extracurricular thirst for activity, Al managed to come out well on top in his battles with the academic department. Setting his goals high, he attained a cumulative OPR well above 2.0 further illus- trating his perseverance. His persistent attitude and willingness to work assure Al of a fine career. B. - ii 5 ' JAMES EDWARD CODE Jim ' s quick wit and flashing grin were a couple of the many reasons why he was so warmly accepted by all at Navy. A product of Lisbon, North Dakota, " Toad " was active in all phases of Academy life, including Catholic choir, glee club, June Week, " extracurricular " weekend parties and sleeping contests. As a top notch athlete, Jim led the company lightweight football teams to victory each winter, and he was always a top " draft choice " in pick up basketball games. His strong drive and tremendous ability to lead with honor and respect will undoubtedly advance Jim along the path to an outstanding career in the Naval Service. ROBERT FRANCIS CUCCIAS " Cooch " came to us straight out of high school. His happy-go- lucky manner and smile soon became known to almost everyone. Being a Navy junior. Bob doesn ' t claim any one state as his own, rather he picks the entire East coast as familiar territory. Aside from the Navy, of course, golf would have to be his dominate interest here at USNA. If he wasn ' t in his room, he could almost certainly be found on the Academy links. The years at Navy did manage to subdue him somewhat, but he will always be remem- bered for his enthusiasm and great spirit. Bob ' s ability and charac- ter mark him as a leader in the Naval service he chooses. JAMES PHILIP CULET Since coming to the Naval Academy from Colorado Springs, Jim, with his quick wit and his ever readiness for a good time won many friends. He met the academic challenge with much gusto but still managed to stay well clear of the Dean ' s or Supt ' s Lists. Being an Air Force " brat " Jim has always wanted to fly, and he hopes to take out his frustrated whims for aviation by donning Navy wings of gold. Though lacking in size for the intercollegiate competition, Jim had a love of sports and has proved an asset to all of the many company intramural teams on which he played. Because of his keen professional attitude and his will to do his best, Jim is destined for much success upon graduation. THOMAS JAMES DALEY " Tomato Juice " , as known to some, came from Milwaukee where St. Norbert ' s College was able to hold his interest for only a year. His first love was football and three varsity N ' s exemplify the desire and love for the game he possessed, not to mention his innate athletic ability. T. J. ' s power of concentration is a quality that would be envied by any conscientious student. His exception- ally high grades were a result of hard work and dedicated study. However, even during the off season, Tom was able to put in time out on the track, attesting to his ever present pursuit of excel- lence. His quiet friendliness will always be remembered by his classmates and his outstanding abilities will make him a great asset to the fleet. HENRY GORDON DAVISON Hank, an import from Waterford, Virginia, is a jack of all trades. An excellent athlete in any sport he tries. Hank excels in lacrosse and wrestling. Due to his efforts to read anything he can get his hands on, Henry has gained a multitude of knowledge on many subjects. Although Henry could never figure out why he didn ' t go to school on some cool paradise island, he attempts to make up for this with swimming and being a member of the Scuba Club. When it comes to academics Hank managed to pull out the grades with as little study as possible. Always one to be quick with wit and jokes, Henry ' s seriousness when needed will produce a capable and hardworking Naval Officer. EDWARD FREDERICK GRITZEN, II Ed-Fred arrived on the banks of the Severn, hailing from Leechburg, Pennsylvania, and bringing with him the best ginger- bread cookies east of the Mississippi. He found the joys of plebe year as truly pleasant as the rest of us, but somehow managed to put on twenty-five pounds in passing. Beneath a harried exterior, there lay a perseverance uncommon among midshipmen concern- ing academics, and Fred quickly earned the much-deserved status of " Class Gouge. " We ' ll never know how many of us were kept from the long green table by Fred ' s notes or from starvation by those gingerbread cookies. 286 ai i« MICHAEL DOUGLAS HESS Mike came to the Academy directly from high school in Newton, Massachusetts. He would have to be characterized as the strong, silent type as exemplified by his dedication to crew and his studies. He has been a member of the crew team for four years and on the Supfs List almost every semester. In order to accomplish this, Mike has ordered his life so that he gets everything done, and still gets eight hours sleep a night. When awake, Mike ' s smile and cheery looks put life into anyone ' s day. Mike ' s achievements are certain to lead to a long and distinguished naval career. DAVID STEPHEN HORTON Dave, the son of a Marine, spent most of his life traveling before arriving at the Naval Academy, where he now spends his time preparing for his career in Navy Air. Dave is noted for his gift of conversation, and is seldom lacking for friends or a party. Always smiling and laughing, he is not easily overlooked in a crowd. He is a lover of cars, skiing and most sports involved with speed, as shown by his adventures as one of the original Eighth Company " Road Maggots. " Living life to its fullest and flying are perhaps his greatest desires, for a conservative he is not. A good friend and midshipman, Dave will undoubtedly be a great asset to the Naval Service. JAMES THOMAS KEARNS Jim came to the Academy from high school and La Crosse, Wisconsin. Not one to worry about grades, he probably slept as much as, if not more than anyone during his stay at Navy. Jim was on the Lucky Bag staff and helped the company out on the athletic field. His main interests of golf, tennis, squash, and sleep- ing will carry over well in later life. Jim has always been serious when need be, understanding and willing to try to help a friend out. His ability to handle any situation with ease and his pleasant nature will be definite assets in all his duties as a Naval Officer. JAMES BRYANT KELLEY After coming from the lobster loving land of Maine and a session at Bullis, J. B., a Navy junior and entrepreneur at heart, took to sailing like a duck takes to water, for which he has received three Navy " N ' s " . He not only sails on it but swims under it as an avid scuba diver. His weekends are spent sailing and developing a quite rigorous social life. Even in that ominous field of academics, Jim is " water " oriented with an oceanography minor. Never one who is willing to sit and wait, J. B. is constantly working at one thing or another. This trait along with his inherent knowledge of the Navy will carry him far in his career. ' SSP ; € l WILLIAM KERNAIM, JR. A Kiddy-Cruiser from Utica, New York, Bill came to the Academy shortly after graduating from high school. Plunging into plebe year. Bill found it quite a challenge but with a characteristic abstinence and determination, bulldozed his way through. After playing mostly company sports plebe year. Bill found a strenuous sport in Brigade boxing, but always came back to help the com- pany when boxing was out-of-season. Although Bill found the E.H. G. Department his home, he amazingly enough plowed through four years of Science and Math with one of the better averages in the company. His wit, determination and perseverance should serve him well throughout his long and successful Naval Career. i CLIFFORD L. KRATT Cliff came to the Naval Academy from the land of sky blue waters, more specifically from Morristown, Minnesota after a short stopover at Northwestern Prep. A hard charger on the intramural circuit. Cliff was well known for his hard blocking in company football and Rugby. He will always be remembered for his ability to throw a party for visiting cadets. Academics never bothered him much, but once he got away from his nemisis, the Bull Depart- ment, he proved his worth in his true field. Engineering. With his ability to make friends, his cheerful attitude and willingness to help others he will certainly prove to be a valuable asset to the Navy. DUANE KRUM Duke came to the Academy from Birdsboro, Pennsylvania where he stood out in football and baseball. After arriving here, he played Plebe football and helped out on the J.V. ' s for two years. After football season, you could find him romping and stomping on the fieldball field. When not involved in sports, Duke was usually hard at work on his studies at which he was not known as an " Einstein, " but he always seemed to make the grade with a little to spare. You might have also found him making people happy with his great humor. With his magnificent sense of humor, and great determination to get the job done, Duke will without a doubt, do well as a naval officer and go far in life. I JOHN RAYMOND LASHER, JR. John came to the Academy from Akron, Ohio after spending a year in the Navy at NAPS. He participated in football and lacrosse there and pursued athletics further at the Academy with three years of football and one year of lacrosse. Aside from his en- deavors in athletics and academics, John always managed to keep out of Bancroft on weekends. He has always demonstrated a zeal and drive which have made his work and that of anyone near him seem easier. His agreeable personality and determination to get a job done will serve him well as he embarks on his career. CRAIG MAYNARD LEMROW Craig, a native New Yorker from Long Island, came to the Academy fresh out of high school. Once at Navy Craig put much of his natural ability in sports and academics to good use. Lacrosse, soccer and football became his favorite sports after a season of gymnastics as a Plebe. Though he didn ' t actually shock the academic departments with his abilities he managed to obtain a major in Wires. Craig devoted much of his spare time to helping his classmates with professional advice on his specialties — girls and money. He was also an active member of the Lucky Bag and the Brigade Activities Committee. Once Craig leaves the Academy and the mighty blue trampoline he will most likely bounce into a career of Navy Air. 288 ' 1 DONALD HENDRIX NASH A Navy Junior, Don has been pulling up stakes all of his life. A former member of the Class of 68, Don ' s good humor and sincer- ity of purpose soon earned him the respect and friendship of his new classmates. Taking the professional aspects of Academy life in stride, Don took an active part in company affairs and earned himself a spot upon the plebe summer detail. His competitive spirit made a mainstay of the company soccer and heavyweight football teams. A man who preferred good fellowship to text- books, Don was more comfortable arranging a party than tackling his academics. His determination to succeed and his ability to make friends will ably assist Don in a successful Naval career. RICHARD F.PUCKETT Rich came to the Academy directly from Robert E. Lee High School in Midland, Texas, where he was a standout in football. He is the second of the Puckett boys to graduate from the Academy. His brother, Don, graduated in ' 66. Since coming to the Academy, Rich has lent his talents in football to the Navy team and in the off season contributes to his company by playing fieldball. For four years Rich rode the line in academics so naturally he could be found hitting the books most of the time. The rest of the time was spent in the rack or just having a fine time. Rich is a person of great humor. He could be depended upon to liven up any group with his presence. This humor along with his great determination will without a doubt, propel him along in his chosen field in the Navy and make him a successful naval officer. GEORGE RONALD SADLER " The Coyote " came to these hallowed halls from the blue-grass pastures of Kentucky. A well spent year at NAPS, where he received the outstanding athlete award, prepared him well for the rigors of plebe year, which he took in stride. It was at NAPS the seeds were planted that could be seen blooming every Saturday during the lacrosse and soccer seasons, where he was for three years a regular and outstanding performer. Never one to spend too much time studying, " Sads " could often be found on the party circuit pursuing the finer things of life. After graduation, Ron plans on spending most of his time in the cockpit — either of his Corvette or in earning the wings he has dreamed of for so long. EDWARD THOMAS TIMPERLAKE It was not hard for Ed to make the transition from real life to the Navy after growing up as a service junior. An honor graduate from Newport News, Virginia, Ed was delayed a year by the NROTC Unit and the University of South Carolina. After a tumul- tuous Plebe year he settled down to his favorite hobbies of reading and taking it easy. It was a real rare weekend he was caught inside the hall. His keen competitive nature found expression on the rugby field each spring. Battalion sports like boxing, crew and football filled in the other sets. His easy going attitude should prove helpful in any branch of the service he enters, he will make a fine officer. THOMAS WELCH TYLER Tom Tyler came to the Naval Academy from Sparta, New Jersey via Admiral Farragut Academy. With such a background, the life of a midshipman was old hat to Tom and he always found a way to sidestep the system. As a talented athlete, he was a welcome addition to the batt boxing and company football teams. Academics never held much excitement for Tom and he was always looking for other outlets. A good man at a party, he managed to retain a fine selection of the fair sex for such occa- sions, and as one of the eighth company " Road Maggots, " Tom has emphasized that the quiet conservative life is not for him. Tom ' s plans for his life in the Naval Service are somewhat hazy, but what ever he chooses he will be an asset to that field and a credit to his class. SAMUEL E.WILSON, III Born an athlete, Sam entered the Academy with the intention of raising the athletic rather than the academic standards. With these intentions Sam succeeded in becoming the one of the com- pany ' s first " N " winners in football, his favorite sport. Despite professing a profound liking for the pad, Sam decided that mid- way through his second class year to sacrifice this valuable time in order to maintain a Supt ' s List average. Regardless of what walk of life Sam chooses, there is no doubt that it will be at the top. With his attitude and drive, he will be a pretty hard guy to stop. 289 9TH COMPANY, SECOND CLASS Row 1: Floyd, S. D.; Goen, L. W.; Knieriem, G. R.; McCormick, L. J.; Lawless, P. H.; Berry, C.

The Buddies have had an interesting four years. Broken in and set the example by the Mets of ' 67, what else could we do but go them one better? We remember Plebe year: the Plebe summer kooi-aid party, the debauchery of the snowbound term break and the Reflec- tion Pool revenge against ' 66. We remember Youngster Year: the bed-against-the-wall Notre Dame party, the birth of the " Tremendous Tree, " the snow ball wipe-out, the placing of crabs in the Reflection Pool after the last p-rade. We remember second class year: the tragic loss of a classmate, the ring-dip and subsequent ousting from the hotel, the June Week softball game — glove in one hand, beer can in the other. Finally came our last year: four years on the fourth deck, four years and no varsity athletes, four years older and the parties aren ' t as they were. WINTER SET: CO. CDR: R. B. Knapp; SUBCDR: V San- tos: CPO: J. C. Higgins. Pi r " " " ' iir--nrinj « ii iBii:: ! ! SPRING SET: CO. CDR: M. J. Costello; SUBCDR: W. M. Teesdale; CPO: J. W. Moffit, 9th COMPANY OFFICER LT D. M. King, USN PAUL J. BUGELSKI Bugs (S not a scholar with any pretentions to accurate learning. He IS a mere seeker, a would-be servant of his l ind, and, withal, one who, all his life, has been drawn from within, by inclination, towards study and thinking, and dragged from without, by circum- stances, towards executive and miscellaneous work of various kinds. During the week. Bugs could be found sitting in his room either studying or complaining about the system; and on the weekends he was usually the first one out to Church Circle. Appropriately named the toughest street fighter in Buffalo, Bugs always placed himself on the offensive. Being the most candid person in the Brigade, his name will definitely go down in the annals of time with the great Philo McGiffen. DEIMIMIS EDWARD BURTON Denny blew in here from Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin. Starting with the Drum Bugle Corps, plebe year, he left that club for better things as an upperclass. He has continued to share his talent with us as lead trumpeter in the NA-10 and the " New Group " as well as organizing and playing in various improvised jazz groups. His athletic contributions were made mainly in com- pany sports — volleyball, basketball and baseball. An Aero man, Denny was also a real advocate of the pad. The rigors of Academy life have not kept the " Man About Town " from having a good time and he ' s always been a regular at the Buddies ' rallies. In what ever he undertakes, Denny is sure to be a success. 1 CHRISTOPHER JAY CARLSON Chris, more affectionately known as " CJ " , came to us from the San Francisco Bay area. Along with him, " CJ " brought his care- free, friendly personality. During his tenure on the banks of the Severn, academics were not one of Chris ' favorite hobbies. As a matter of fact, if it was possible to put knowledge back into the books, he would be the first one to do it. Between playing the guitar, building models, " shooting the bull " , and chasing girls, there was seldom time for much else. Despite his varied interests, " CJ " managed to hang over the old 2.0. With his pleasant person- ality and his ability to get along with others, Chris is one the Navy can well be proud of. MARTIN JOSEPH COSTELLO Coming to us from New Orleans, Martin gave up college life at L.S U to fulfill a lifelong ambition. He has proven himself more than capable of handling any situation which may pop up. A star man for four years, academics have given him little trouble. However, in the natatorium, Rock has more than lived up to this name. Most of his time has been devoted to helping everyone else with studies, organizing parties, and building the loudest stereo system in Bancroft Hall. The originator of the Dirty Dozen, he is usually in the middle of the company ' s affairs. His hard work combined with tremendous potential are certain to carry him to the top of his chosen field. WILLIAM RICHARD GRIMM Bill came to us from Exeter, New Hampshire with a winning personality and a competitive spirit. Bill ' s talent was a vital asset to the successful plebe crew, company fieldball and battalion boxing teams. " Salty Billy " was even seen one spring sailing around the Chesapeake on the company knock-about team. Acad- emics sometimes presented a challenge but Bill always came out on top. He found a second home in the Naval Science Department where he showed his ability as an oceanographer. Never one to let the system spoil a good time. Bill was a man who enjoyed his weekend liberty. Many a successful Buddies party had Bill ' s organ- izational skill behind it. We look for Bill to be an instant success in ' • " " " ' ' ROBERT FRANKLIN HARTMAN, III Bubba came to USNA from Valley Forge, Pennsylvania with bleached hair, a suntan and a determination to make good as a ' Middle. " His academic fireworks as a plebe dwindled to a sputter- ing but steady flame as upperclass academics were faced. A de- voted wrestler and wrestling fan, Bubba spent time on the plebe, battalion and varsity teams as his main athletic endeavor. Always ready for a few laughs or a party with the Buddies, he was never far from the Annapolis action. A prolific pad man, Bubba spent many periods in the horizontal position, making those long unin- terrupted hours of unconsciousness look so effortless. His easy- going manner and friendly grin should guarantee his success in whatever he does. 292 JEFFREY MICHAEL HELLRUNG The people of Toledo, Ohio lost one of their brighter young men when Jeff left Central High to come to Navy. Jeff, never having any trouble with academics, has been on the Superinten- dent ' s List ever since plebe year. After plebe year Jeff decided to join the ranks of the BULL jocks. He can always be counted on for an eloquent opinion on anything from foreign affairs to company basketball team strategy. He was a fearless fighter for the second batt boxing team as well as lending his support to the company basketball and battalion tennis teams. Jeff ' s drive to read and learn about everything he can get his hands on will surely be a great asset to the fleet. ROGER WILLIAM HERRMAN In the spring of 1965, on the hot, dusty plains of Topeka, Kansas a vital decision was made. At the expense of the Air Force Academy, Roger swept towards Annapolis. As plebe year was drawing to a close, Roger found himself in the hospital, nursing his injured knee, while the rest of the class was on youngster cruise. Quick to assume command, Herms coached th e company basket- ball team to a brilliant 2-6 record. His musical talent was not wasted, as he participated in Concert Band, Drum and Bugle Corps and NA-10, Academically, his grades fluctuated from the unsat level to Dean ' s List. Roger ' s easy going style of professional competence will be put to good use m his career as a Naval Officer. c JAMES CHARLES HIGGINS A proud Philadelphian, Higgs came directly from high school, but never encountered the academic difficulties that plagued most of his classmates. Also a proficient athlete, Higgs was a leading member of numerous intramural teams. When not helping less fortunate friends with their studies, he could usuallly be found listening to his " boss " Philly sounds, reading Surfer magazine or quietly dreaming away the hours until the next leave. His easy- going manner and subtle wit have brightened many a day for those around him. The addition of Jim ' s dedication and self confidence to his natural intelligence assure him of a very successful career. THOMAS JARDINE HOLLEMAN " Holli " or T. J. as he is often called, calls Scituate, Massa- chusetts his home. While working for an Applied Science major and a Math minor he never had any trouble with academics and could be seen wearing his stars or taking advantage of the Superin- tendent ' s List privileges throughout his stay at Navy. Tom ' s real love, however, was sailing, and he spent both fall and spring seasons climbing masts and racing on the yawls. A defender of the company fieldball team during the winter months, Tom also found time for Antiphonal Choir, Sigma Pi Sigma, and the Scuba Club. As for the future, Tom ' s personal ambition and drive will insure his success. HOWARD KEITH KLINE Howie arrived here from the hot dry weather of Tucson, Arizona and met his first challenge in getting used to the humid Annapolis weather. This was the foundation of his belief that the West was " the place to live. " Howie exercised his talents in organizing many of " the Buddies " infamous parties and contribu- ting to company skits with his speaking ability. A vocal and enthusiastic Navy rooter, Howie devoted much of his time to being a varsity cheerleader. You could always pick him out at the football games as the one with the rapidly receding hairline. When it came time to study " the Bumper " , a nickname he acquired when he began to show his reaction to the rigors of Youngster year, buckled down and earned a minor in Electrical Science. Whichever branch of the Navy Howie chooses, he will prove a capable leader and a fine Naval Officer. ROLAND BERTRAM KNAPP Leaving Whitman College in his beloved home state of Washing- ton, Rollo came to the Academy armed with enough ammunition, both physical and mental, to fight his way through the four years at Navy. A knee injury early in plebe year deterred his football career, but Rollo continued to be a standout in intramural sports. The books presented no problem for Rollo who wore stars as a result of steady, hard work and a good mind. Rollo was no loser in the girl department either, more than once having the strange situtation of too many girls at one time. His intelligence, ability and personality will assure Rollo ' s success in the future whatever it may hold. 293 i DOUGLAS LEE MILLER Straight from high school, Doug entered the Academy through an appointment by the Secretary of the Navy, A natural athlete, Doug can usually be found playing basketball, football or doing pull-ups. As the years passed and subjects became more difficult, his academic prowess increased more than enough to meet his demanding load, and he also was always willing to help classmates in academics. An avid " Notre Dame " fan, Doug can be seen wearing his " Notre Dame sweatshirt " during study hour and yelling " Go, Notre Dame. " His quiet and easy going personality, sincerity and thoughtfulness has won him many friends through- out the Brigade and with these qualities he should prove an outstanding addition to the Naval Officer ' s corps. I JAMESW. MOFFIT, JR. " Moff ' graduated from Centennial High School in Portland, Oregon. According to those who have known him these past few years Jim can best be described as " different. " Academically, despite all the efforts of the Weapons Department, he emerged as one of the company scholars. Athletically, his aggressively compet- itive spirit made him an asset to the battalion cross country and water polo teams, and a key man on the company touch football roster. But Moff will, no doubt, be best remembered for his sizeable harem of local cuties and his outlandish northwestern wardrobe. A man of many talents, Moff should succeed in any venture. MICHAEL FRANCIS MORRELL Mike (Twiggy) came to colonial old Annapolis from the teem ing metropolis of Elmira, New York. He was immediately caught up in the busy daily life of a midn He breezed through the academic program maioring in Math. Your study hour was not complete without a trip to Mike ' s room for a little extra gouge. Mike was also one of the versatile athletes in the company, with only one weak point . . . " Ye Olde Swimming Hole, " Mike spent plebe year pitching for the plebe baseball team and in the years to follow established his reputation as the top bowler m the com- pany. EARNEST LEONARD NEIGHBORS Having arrived at Navy by way of the University of Alabama and NAPS, " Nick " brought with him the unlikely nickname he won at NAPS because, well ... he just looked like a " Nick. " Always abreast of the latest in the world of sports one could never defeat his belief that " Bear " Bryant was the greatest and " the Tide " would always be the best. One of the Big Blue Team ' s greatest supporters, Ernie ' s devotion to our athletic teams was always best demonstrated in his disappointment when they lost. Never left out of a conversation, you could always depend on one of his classic witicisms like " He looks like the North end of a Southbound Mule. " His outgoing personality and sincere concern for the othei person will make " the ol ' Watash " one of our finest officers. JOHN ERNEST PRAIRIE John comes from " Hometown, USA " , Glens Falls, New York, deep in the woods of the Adirondacks. Not the man to let studies interfere with his education, John has averaged reading at least three books a week since the first marking period of plebe year Combining his interests in the out of doors, animals and myths and fables, it is only natural that he plans on being the first man to track and bring back alive an abominable snowman. A past master of the one-liner, John and his bubbling personality have won more friends, started and finished more parties, and except for wires, gotten into and out of more tight spots than any of the Buddies. He is just getting started. 294 1 ' VALENTINO SANTOS Val came to the Naval Academy after two years at the University of California, Berkeley. Coming from a Navy family, Val always had his sights aimed at USNA. Being active in the Catholic Choir, Spanish Club, Newman Club and company bull ■essions, his books seldom held his attention for long, but his maiors in Spanish and Math are evidence of his academic ability. In the area of sports Val was a great competitor in batt boxing, company football and Softball, though his memories of batt boxing are less distinguishing than the others. With the desire Val has we who know him are sure he will be one of the Navy ' s finest officers. JOHN C. SCRAPPER Scrapps has limited his interests while at the Academy to four categories: the Scuba Club, sleep, chow and girls from Maryland. Studying has not always been his favorite subject. He feels that his most worthwhile experience was the summer he spent as a Plebe squad leader. But all has not been golden, he has been accus ed of " oiling his own wheels of progress " and even trying to get a Plebe to restrict for him! If the present looks cloudy, Scrapps future appears eclipsed, but his friends feel that the sun shines even upon the least deserving and come what may, Scrapps will be forever in the hearts of his classmates as the nicest guy they know. STANLEY ANTHONY SHUSTAK, JR. Stan came to Navy from Shrewsbury, Massachusetts after deciding that he didn ' t want to attend Holy Cross because " the discipline was too strict " . A star in high school football, Stan passed up plebe ball but did manage to get in a year with the one-fifties before settling down to intramurals where he ' s been a standout in fieldball. Academics rarely give Shus any problems. In fact, he probably has the highest QPR point per pad-hour ratio than any man in the class. Wherever there ' s a crowd or a party, look in the middle of the activity and Stan will be there. What ever branch ot service Stan chooses, it will be getting the finest the Academy has to offer. WALTER MATTHEW TEESDALE As Walt ' s distinctive accent and the destination of his every weekend indicates, his hometown is Philadelphia. He came to USNA from Father Judge High School At Navy he found a new challenge in the form of Brigade boxing. If his afternoons weren ' t spent ducking and throwing punches, you could find him out kicking a soccer ball around for Coach Warner. Academics were the only thing that could take Walt away from his Johnny Rivers albums. His persistent studying made his room the company " gouge " center. " Dennis the Menace " , as Walt came to be known on Plebe Summer Detail, never stops. This sort of vitality should make him a success anywhere. JULIAN TAGGART VAN WINKLE A campus resident from Huntington, Long Island, Tag came with a military school background and was really ready for Navy. After a top-notch job as a plebe, " Winkle " was voted into the weekend club and remained a member in good standing most of the following year He rowed for the plebe lightweight crew and has played football, rugby and fieldball On Sundays, Tag dis- turbed the tranquility of the Catholic Choir and spent the rest of the week working hard on his Foreign Affairs and Portuguese minors. But this did not keep him from the Buds ' parties and he ' ll be remembered especially for his sense of humor and that distinctive laugh. Congratulations, Navy Line, he ' s yours ' LAWRENCE R. YARNELL, JR. Two weeks after graduating from high school in Annandale, Virginia Larry, a hard charging Navy Junior, began his encounter with plebe year. Most of this year found him in vigorous exercise, both in a crew sheel and in upperclass rooms. Perseverance payed off, however, and Youngster Year he became noted as the owner of one of the largest and loudest sound collections in the company. Being a practically minded aero minor, Larry spent many study hours constucting model airplanes, rather than merely studying on the subject. Also something of a ladies ' man, Larry was rarely seen without a date on the weekends. His mature judgment and sense of humor will make him a welcome addition to the fleet. 295 10TH COMPANY, SECOND CLASS Row 1: Webb, W. F., Jackson, G. R.; Sessler, G. F.; Fiordaliso, D. M.; Miller, D.

Many words of thanks were spoken by us Plebe summer that nex t to each of our names the computer had typed a 34. Club 34 was not exactly the tightest company in the Brigade, a characteristic we all managed to learn in our first two years. Second class year brought us to our new home in the second battalion. It was a big change, and not for the better. Our firsties had a new move for us at formations called a " dress right " , and we were slow to learn. Our rings came in, June Week came and went, and we found ourselves in the driver ' s seat. A certain Lieutenant will attest to the fact that we have not exactly maintained ironclad discipline, but we have all managed to survive the ordeal. All that is left now is graduation, and for half our number — June weddings. WINTER SET: CO. CDR: K. C. Cech; SUB-CDR: T. P. Cruser; CPO: R A Wolf SPRING SET: CO. CDR: R. K. Perkins: SUB CDR: K C. Cech. CPO; R. M. Stromberg. 10th COMPANY OFFICER LT J. H. Tenbrook, USN i« JONATHAN LEE ANDERSON Coming straight to the Academy from the small burg of Con- nel, Washington, Andy brought an intensely inquisitive mind bent on coping with whatever the East and Navy had to offer. His efforts were well invested in the field of Mathematics and he was continuously rewarded with fine marks. He devoted his time as manager to the football team and was known for his enthusiastic participation in batt fencing, fieldball, company knockabouts. German Club and the Public Relations Committee. All his abilities and interests, coupled with his personality, suggest a highly color- ful and successful career. THOMAS JAMES BELICHICK Coming to the Academy from Youngstown, Ohio the big fullback from Struthers High School had a bright future ahead of him with the Blue Team. His driving power had produced four touchdowns for the Plebes when he was crippled by a knee injury which was to end his football career. A hard man to keep down. Chick transferred his talents to the party circuit where his exploits earned him the admiration of classmates and OOD ' s alike. When not in the weight room or at a restriction muster, he could be found improving his Superintendent ' s List academic performance by the horizontal method. Chick ' s determined but easy manner makes him a natural leader, who will be a welcome addition wherever his future takes him. ROBERT DANNY BENNETT Dan came to USNA from Alabama not knowning much about Navy life. He quickly adapted to the ways of a midshipman, and came to be a true friend to many. Those who got to really know Dan knew that, although he never excelled in academics, he made his trademark a smile and a friendly word. Although he worked hard to achieve his academic goals, Dan still participated actively in the finer things, though never letting them interfere with his professional growth, which has provided him with a sound foun- dation upon which to build a fine naval career. WILLIAM LEWIS BRECKINRIDGE, VI The " BRECKER " as known to some, brought the soul and blues of St. Louis with him to USNA. Never one to let academics or the system interfere with his hair, music or sleeping, he took out plenty of time for relaxation and enjoyment. On the athletic field. Bill was recognized as a tough scrapper who was a big factor m football and basketball victories. Also known as " The Poli- tician, " Bill was at his best in political science, and will undoubt- edly bolster the American political scene in the future. His great drive and enthusiasm will make him one of the finest of avaiators to come out of Pensacola. KENNETH CHARLES CECH The most well known man to come from Libertyville, Illinois since Adlai Stevenson, Ken came to the Academy right out of high school. He quickly adjusted to the academic challenge and was on the Superintendent ' s List . . . once. Never letting his studies con- sume too much of his time, he could usually be found on those long fall and winter evenings pursuing the hobby for which he was to become world-renowned - philately. Known for his outgoing personality, " The Rija " could usually be found with a smile on his face; that is, if he wasn ' t snuggled under the covers. A keen interest in athletics led him to great success on the company lightweight football and Softball teams. Ken ' s quick wit and easy laugh made him many friends throughout the Brigade and his love for Navy Air should make him an instant success in that field. 298 THOMAS PAUL CRUSER Tom calls Mansfield, Massachusetts, his home and continually astounds us every so often with one of his Eastern pronunciations. A fierce competitor on the athletic field, Tom has a lot of natural ability and could always be found in the middle of a football or basketball game. Never having had a long line outside his door waiting for academic help, " Cruise " did have a few brief bouts with the academic department, but he usually came out on top thanks to being well rested. One of the most personable guys around, Tom knew 90% of the class on a first name basis. With his ability to get along with just about anybody and possessing an excellent attitude, Tom is a sure success in the Navy. FRANK JOSEPH CURNOW " Little Frankie " traded the coaching of Jack Fletcher for the coaching of Dick Brown and Joe Duff and certainly left his mark on Navy baseball. Frankie had varied interests. He could box, wrestle, and street fight with the best of them and then write a sweet sonnet to read to his lady friends in the eve. Frank ' s easy going nature and his " Gosh darnit, how the hell are you " attitude made him one of the best known and liked of his classmates. Never wearing stars, though he had them in his eyes, fearing not the system, the academics nor the tomorrows, Frankie proved to be the best in the match against all. CARL HARVEY EDMONDS An Air Force " Junior " , Carl came to Navy from nearby Vienna, Virginia. When he wasn ' t out on the links, you could usually find him working hard at academics. Though he managed to shoot par on the golf course, when it came to his studies a few bogies always seemed to pop up. During the off-season he com- peted with the company lightweights. Always an active member of the Public Relations Committee, he was elected Secretary-Trea- surer for his first class year Carl has always been cheerful and easy going. With this attitude and his dogged spirit, he will follow on to a rich and rewarding career no matter what line he follows. HOWARD JAMES HALLIDAY, JR . Tim came to the Academy from Wilmington, Delaware where he graduated second in his class at Corpus Christi High School. A consistent member of the Dean ' s or Superintendent ' s List, he had little difficulty with academics and displayed a willingness to help his classmates whenever asked for aid. Tim found plenty of time to participate in company sports and to help the batt handball team to a Brigade Championship. Tim, or " Doc " , kept himself busy on the weekends by concentrating on his extracurricular activities of girl watching. The afternoons usually found him running, sleeping or playing with his cherished tape recorder. Tim ' s ability to apply himself and do his best will guarantee his success in whatever he may choose JAMES BRUCE HIGGINS Jim came to the Academy from Central Dauphin East High in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where he almost single handedly ran the whole school. Although he didn ' t quite control everything here at USNA, no one can say he didn ' t try. He was president of the Public Relations Committee, Company Representative, Lucky Bag Representative, Brigade Activities Representative and a perennial member of the German Club. Never one to burn the midnight oil, " Higgs " still managed to make the Superintendent ' s List every semester. How he did it remains a mystery to all and still he was never too busy to help a classmate with academics or pass up a bull session. Likewise, athletics posed no problems for the " Higg " as he was a four year veteran of the batt tennis, company football and Softball teams. Jim ' s great spirit and friendly attitude will sjrely lead him past even the most challenging tasks in future v«3 = JOHN ERNEST HILBURN Hilby came to the Academy from Tampa, Florida after a year at Clemson University. After three years of strained relations with the Academic Board he decided to leave the party circuit and turn over a new leaf with the five year program. Diggin ' football more than food, John slimmed down from 200 to 150 pounds and then fullbacked the 150 lb. football team to two national champion- ships and two victories over Army. After you got John out of the weight room, you would find him shooting for that star in academics. Whether or not he can get his dumbbells in that Marine green Phantom II you ' ll see him set the sky on fire with his unquenchable thirst for perfection in life. 299 ■ MICHAEL KENNETH JOHANNSEN Mike graduated from Palmetto Senior High In Miami, Florida and came to the Academy via two years in the Naval Air Reserves. Being " Miami born and Miami bred. " Mike loved to surf, water ski and skin dive. While at Navy, however, he excelled In such new sports as company fleldball, battalion tennis and welghtllfting, where he held seven records in two weight classes. Mike, who was a German major and president of the German Club, spent many tireless hours buried in German books of all sorts. His efforts, however, were not to go unrewarded as he received the German foreign exchange cr uise. Mike ' s strong personality, friendly warmth and knack for handling responsibility will carry him far in whatever career he pursues. THOMAS WILLIAM LAFORCE " Forehead " came to Annapolis from the thriving metropolis of Lorain, Ohio where he starred as a three sport man, football, basketball and baseball. Upon arriving at the Academy, he decided to concentrate on football and has finally made it to the top. Tom, being the dedicated hard worker he is, would not let any- thing stand in his way when it came to academics. He has managed to excel In this field with the exception of a single " f " , and still goes to bed right after dinner every night. The posessor of an outgoing personality, his quick smile and sincerity have made him many friends throughout the Brigade. Tom ' s competitive spirit was evident in every sport he attempted, as he excelled in com- pany basketball and Softball. Whatever service selection the Fore- head makes, he will be a welcome addition to any branch WILLIAM JOSEPH LAZ, JR. Bill, or " Laser " as he ' s probably better known, came to the Naval Academy from Aurora, Illinois. He spent most of his early life on the muddy Fox River where he gained a great affection for small craft. This was carried over to the Naval Academy where Bill spent four years as a stalwart of the YP Squadron. As a student Bill plugged and chugged his way to a Mechanical Engineering minor and several semesters landed on the Superintendent ' s List, with NO help from the EH G Department. Bill ' s musical interests can be summarized by the letter " B " : Beach Boys, Beatles and Buckinghams. Bill ' s hard working attitude and loyalty will make him a welcomed member on any " Navy team, " ROBERT JAMES LEMKE " Bobollsh " , as he is affectionately known came staggering in from the land of Schlltz . . . Milwaukee. A year in the Fleet and a year at NAPS conditioned him for the rigors of USNA life. Never at his best with Russian, he finally found courses to his liking and stars to his credit. Recognized among his classmates as a man with sound judgement, he often was there to give sound advice when needed. Bob got the Schlltz out of his system by consistently hurdling to first place on the track team, and by passing out at the Army parties at night. Surely, Bob has found at USNA many of those fine attributes which will enable him to lead a fine life. ROBERT JOHN McDEVITT " Mac " came to the Naval Academy from York, Pennsylvania, to follow in the footsteps of his father, a former Marine from the Class of ' 45. Before becoming a Mid, he attended Georgetown Prep High School in Washington, D.C. At the Academy Mac actively participated in the Public Relations Committee, the German Club and the Brigade Hop Committee. He proved to be an invaluable asset to the company football, basketball and Softball teams and he was a team leader in all these sports. Never one to lose any sleep over academics, he concentrated on a minor In German. With his quiet determination, Mac is destined to serve his country well, whether he chooses the Navy or the Marine Corps. 300 " JAMES W.MOLLOY No one knows where the name came from but. for to all who knew him, Jim will always be remembered as " the moleman. " Coming to Navy from N. Adams. Massachusetts. Jim lost no time in winning everybody with his constant laugh and outgoing per sonality. He always seemed to have better lu ck with the cards or the one-armed bandits than with the books and only seldom did he miss any small opportunity to grab a little pad time. He passed many a study hour in bull sessions and many a weekend at parties, where he was both a familiar and a welcome sight. His friendliness and warmth, coupled with a competitive attitude and a close attention to detail, insure that Jim will be a popular and welcome addition to the Fleet. MICHAEL CARTER MORGAN Mike, aptly christened " the Indian " mostly due to the prom- inence of his " red neck " , was txjrn a traveler. As a wandering scholar he pursued courses of study from Bangkok, Thailand to Vienna, Virginia, where he graduated from high school in 1964. The Navy worked its charm and Mike enlisted, serving a year as a FT prior to entering USNA. Leaving his lacrosse stick on the reservation, he picked up soccer and " melon " ball with amazing skill and enthusiasm, not to mention his prowess on the football field, a la company level. His quick wit, coy mannerisms, and bountiful knowledge, professional and otherwise, will earmark him for bigger and better things when he returns to the fleet, and can only bring a tear to the eye of Mother B as she watches the " last of the Mohigans " leave his home of the past four years. GARY JOSEPH OVERBECK Gary decided that life on the Severn was for him after spending a year at St. Louis University. " The Blade " , a proud son of St. Louis, was always ready to defend it against every challenge and usually won. While at the Academy Gary contributed his talents to Piebe and batt wrestling and was a member of the Brigade Cham- pionship team. Not one to restrict himself to a single field, he also took an active part in company fieldball and Softball, where he gained a reputation for his fierce competitive spirit. When it came time to study, Gary used this same drive to overcome the chal- lenges of the Academic Departments, and was a member of the Superintendent ' s List. RICHARD KING PERKINS Perk came to the Academy directly from Cherry Hill High School, New Jersey. Throughout, he managed to correspond with the Superintendent more times than he would like to remember. Vectors and equations led Perk into difficulty, such was not the case with his major, Portuguese, in which he received an A in every course and the Brazilian foreign exchange cruise. An excitable type, Perk took his excess energy into the intramural boxing ring. Not to be monopolized by one sport, he also played company soccer and football. As the many pictures under his blotter will aTtest, Perk is headed for an aviation career; with his enthusiasm and energy, he is surely going to be one of the best. RONALD E. REEDY Ron came to the Academy directly from high school from sunny Scottsdale, Arizona. From the start Academy life never gave ■Railroad " much trouble. With a minimum time spent studying, straight A ' s were the rule rather than the exception, easily attain- ing his major in Electrical Engineering. Stars became a permanent part of his uniform Ron was equally at ease in the sports depart- ment. From September to March he could most likely be found m the pool where he won his " N " as a varsity diver. The rest of the year he spent a little less strenuously as a member of the company Softball team. Ron ' s quick mind, friendly personality and willing- ness to help others will stand him m good stead in his Naval Career. FRANCIS ALBERT ROBERTS The " A ce " , as he is called by classmates, hails from Chicago. One need only know the " Ace " for a short while to realize why he is called that. His ability to attack any problem astounds many. Frank is one of those individuals who never leaves a job unfin- ished. His choice in clothes, drink, cars, women and all the other essentials is impeccable. His professional capabilities are equal to those of the most outstanding young men in the service today. Frank will have an outstanding career in any branch of the Navy. 301 i WILLIAM CASTEL SAULS, JR. Billy Castel Sauls, a diehard rebel, came to Navy from the ranks of Bullis Prep as a tremendous athlete with a fondness for beer, women and conflict. Not known for his tranquil qualities, Billy IS a good man to have on your side when the hands start flying. Called " Bad Leg " by his baseball teammates because of a hamstring injury which shortened a baseball career which could have been nothing short of great, Billy turned his attentions to company Softball where he was an instant star. The proverbial sailor with a girl in every port (due to his charm and good looks), Billy can ' t miss as a hell raisin ' officer. MICHAEL STEPHAN SMITH Mike had a head start on a naval career by the time he got to USNA after 2% years in the Fleet and a brief stop at NAPS. Mike fell into the routine of Academy life and soon came to the conclusion that anything over a 2.00 was wasted pad time. Smitty or " Deacon " as he was known to many, found that life at Navy was simply a necessary evil that interrupted his scuba, fishing and hunting trips back home in Florida. Mike was one of the stalwarts on the company soccer team and was also active in other company sports and scuba club. Mike ' s maturity and imtative will serve him well upon graudation. He will be a welcome and respected addi- tion to any command under which he serves. THOMAS HIRAM SMITH, JR. Tommie, or " the pink pad baby, " as he was affectionately called by both of his friends, spent many hours searching for lumps in his pillow. Not one to give up easily, even chiding from his classmates could not roust him. Once out of the pad, however, Tommie has a sarcastic wit that few can keep from smiling at. Tom ' s sports included heavyweight football, Softball and his favor- ite: soccer. Many Saturday nights Tommy could be found re- memorizing his Lettermen tape, thinking of his girl, and home in North Caldwell, New Jersey. Tom studied diligently of Math, wires and his minor. Weapons. His unwillingness to turn in a half done or sloppy project will easily carry him through any field he ■ o " RUSSEL MARTIN STROMBERG After spending seventeen years in his hometown of Havre, Montana, Russ decided to see what big city life was like and made the long journey to Annapolis, bringing with him the desire to excel in both academics and athletics. Never one to disdain the merits of a good bull session, " Berg " could be found most any night in a classmate ' s room discussing the merits of a Naval career over civilian life. Although academics never gave him trouble, he spent many nights burning the midnight oil after using the after- noon for some worthwhile pad time and study hour for one of those horizontal-expanding bull sessions. Demonstrating great prowess on the athletic field he lettered in 1 50 pound football and also supported the company fieldball and battalion water polo teams. He also found time for the Foreign Relations Club, NAFAC and N Club. With all these attributes Russ is certain to be a success in any field. RICHARD ALAN WOLF " Wolf . . a swift-footed, crafty, rapacious animal . . . " Webster didn ' t even come closel Rick came to us from the sandy beaches of Miami, Florida. When he took time off from the hum-drum activities of academic life, he participated in many of the rougher sports; varsity football, fieldball or weightlifting. Rick corre- sponded regularly with Admiral Kauffman and the academic de- partment but in his usual daring style which has brought a few seven no-trump bids to light, he managed to walk the 2 tightrope without any serious falls. Like Miami, Rick has a sunny person- ality that has gained him many friend|. There ' s no doubt in anyone ' s mind that the fleet will be a much happier place with the addition of Rick Wolf. DENNIS ANDREW YATRAS Yat was considered a worthwhile athletic entry from Hicks- ville. Long Island by the Academy. He proved them right with four outstanding lacrosse seasons in which Coach Bilderback managed to turn the " Greek " into a lean, hungry sort. Out-of- season lacrosse and company heavyweight football accounted for his time in the fall and winter sets. In spite of many differences with Weapons Department ' s computers, he maintained a very healthy QPR and was noted for his flair with Math. His tremen- dous energy and easy going approach to life suggest an equally successful future. 302 :i FALL! r-reCI ■ •1 1 k 11th Company FALL SET: CDR: T. J. Verrengia: SUB-CDR: J. A.

He attended Columbian Prep before coming to the Academy where he was active in sports and carried baseball into his first two years. A night was never complete till you walked into Tony ' s chateau to find 4 pepperoni hanging from the ceiling. While the wop has accomplished much here and will be long remembered he ' s probably best known for his love of " the shing " , sports cars, and a ravishing redhead. An avid love of planes and an unquenchable thirst for the wide open spaces will prepare Tony for a fine successful career in Navy air. JAMES ALBERT BABB Being an Air Force Junior, Jim had several opportunities to travel, but not too much choice where he went to. Nonetheless, he managed to get to Japan for two years, followed by two years in Hawaii, then three years in California where he spent one year at the University of California, Berkeley. While he was at Cal, he received his appointment to the Academy from SecNav; so he put away his picket sign and joined the Navy. His present plans call for him to go to flight school in order to fly phantoms and, eventually get into the astronaut corps. JOHN HOWARD BODINE " Bo " came to the Academy from Huntington, Long Island, New York. Since he joined the Brigade, John has made a lasting impression on those around him. One of Navy ' s best, John proved his prowess on the athletic fields earning varsity letters in both soccer and lacrosse for three consecutive years. A gifted student, " Bo " didn ' t allow athletics to rule his life. His enviable drive and enthusiasm earned him a major in Applied Science, despite several major skirmishes with the wires department. A true individual, John will be remembered around here for his undying sincerity and those bright blue eyes that were forced to open daily to the sound of reveille. ROBERT WEST BOYNTON Bob had dreamed of coming to the Naval Academy since he was a little swab in Trumbull, Connecticut. In high school he joined the Naval Reserve. Finally his dreams came true and he got his appointment to the Academy. Bob — now a career man all the way - has excelled in both academics and sports here at the Academy. A cross country man turned sailor, he has shed his enlightenment on many of us. Wherever Bob was, excitement was sure to at least follow. Nights would usually find Bob burning the night oil studying Physics or trying to find a date — but " Eagle " always got his eight hours daily whether in class or on a date. With ability like this, he could only go far in the Navy. GALE DEAN BRINK Gale came to the Academy from the small Midwestern town of Storm Lake, Iowa, where his academic and athletic achievements prepared him well for life as a midshipman. While at the Academy, he has shown a keen interest in both his academic and professional development. He has been active in Antiphonal Choir, has been in the Masquaerders and has had an interest in scuba diving during his four years here. Determination to excel, a genuine desire to learn, and much ability are the factors that have contributed consider- ably to his previous success and will assure his future success as an officer. He has set his goals high but those who know him realize that he will achieve them. JOHN M. COCHRANE John came to the Academy after a year at Michigan Tech. His excellent academic work set him near the top of the class, earned a major in Theoretical Mathematics and earned him the honor of being a Trident Scholar. He not only worked hard but played hard on the tennis courts as a member of the plebe and varsity tennis teams. Other interests included: reading, scuba diving and almost any outdoor activity; all of which he pursued avidly during his leaves. John plans to continue his education in Mathematics, eventually to the Ph.D level. With his ambition and intelligence, this should be no problem. John ' s friendship will be treasured by those who know him long after we graduate. MICHAEL ROBERT HALL Mike, coming straight from Kubasaki High School on Okinawa to Navy became the black sheep of his all-Army family and has consistently lived up to this title. His outgoing character has enabled him to enjoy life at the Academy to its fullest. Although he cannot be termed an engineering slash, his knowledge of his field of study, history, is enviable. A respect for physical fitness as well as academics has proven invaluable in his position as ring man on the batt gym team. Due to family background and high regard for his country, he has acquired an outstanding attitude toward his naval career This, combined with his great good nature will serve to make him an outstanding officer. JOHN BRADDOCK HAWKINS, JR. Hawks came from Pensacola, Florida with the thought of Blue and Gold on his mind. His professional knowledge of the Navy and his devotion to duty still are an integral part of his daily life. Coming from the home of Navy Air, it is only natural that he pursued a course in Aerospace Engineering and has high hopes of flying for the Navy. After a long hard week on the books and tennis courts, the weekend finds him playing as hard as he works. Dragging his favorite girl and enjoying himself to the fullest gets him ready for the next week of academics. His hard driving character and his devotion to the Navy are sure to produce a fine officer. CHARLES CONRAD KARLAN Chuck realize d his life long dream of going to the Naval Academy when he left Topeka, Kansas and migrated to the sunny shores of the Severn. He quickly began taking an active part in Brigade activities and has continued to be an enthusiastic sup- porter of the Navy system. Chuck ' s love of the sea and things nautical led him to the sailing squadron where he won a place of prominence among the ocean sailors. Chuck will always be remem- bered for the exacting standards which he set for himself, espe- cially in the professional and academic areas. He lived by the credo, if something has to be done, make sure it ' s done right. Chuck ' s love of the service will carry him far in the Naval Career. JOHN AUSTIN LATOURRETTE The call of the sea brought John out of the mountains of Reno, Nevada to the salt air of Annapolis. With a flare for high living, pretty girls and always a good time, he courted lady luck and wrapped her around his ring finger. The extent of Lats ' interests were boundless, ranging from boxing, skiing and sailing, to the more academic areas of electronics, weapons systems and navigation. Here was a real, genuine great guy with that all- American look and a smile that could melt ice. With a determi- nation that could move Gibraltar and a spontaneous enthusiasm and optimism that could never be quelled, Lats has certainly met the most difficult requirements for success In whatever he may do. 306 JACK WESLEY LAHREN In June 1965, Jack, as he is called by his friends, hopped on a stage and took a long, dusty trip from Fargo, North Dakota to — of all places - USNA. The ride must not have been too uncom- fortable, because he de cided to minor m Mechanical Engineering in hopes of building a better coach. In addition to his academic endeavors, Jack also made a successful attempt at sports, especial- ly 150 lb. football. After being a live blocking dummy as a sophomore, he won an Nstar as a junior. So the boy from the wild, wild West made good in the East. Jack ' s perseverance and ability to adjust should prove valuable to whichever branch of the Naval service he enters. ALAN L. LANE " Wej " , as he is called by his closest friends, hails from Miami, Florida and came to the USNA directly from high school bringing with him his athletic prowess. Not one to spend many a weekend in the hall pondering over his books, he is always on top of his academics. " The Wej " could always be found in the phone rooms where he spent many an hour planning a big weekend. An active member in athletics, Al was a stalwart on the 150 lb. football defensive unit. A true team leader, his competitive spirit and athletic ability earned him an N-star his junior year. His friendly personality and effervescent spirit are sure to carry him far toward a rewarding career in the Naval Service. JOHN HAZEN POST, III John, who hails from Mt. Lakes, New Jersey spends his free time as a live blocking dummy and place kicker for the varsity 1 50 lb football team and as a free lance trackman. Academically, he wasn ' t able to ride the curve because he couldn ' t catch it. Then when he finally got close, they did away with it. On weekends, you could usually find John checking in and out of the Battalion Office (he couldn ' t outrun the OOW either), or in his rack " dream- ing ' about a 2.0 or his Vette. John has a serious side too, which includes a devotion to the Navy and his country. This deep seated devotion to duty should prove a valuable asset to the Naval Service. WILLIAM CLIFFORD ROGERS Bill entered the Academy immediately following his graduation from high school in Hughesville, Pennsylvania. Being a Marine junior he was not particularly surprised at the rigors of the transition from the civilian to the military way of life. He made a determined effort during his four years to keep abreast of the social life, maintain the " good life " , and keep his realistic perspec- tive - even though his policy at times conflicted with that of the Executive Department. Bill ' s personal interests ranged from quick cars and the outdoors to the opposite sex. His abilities and common sense will make him an outstanding officer in the years to come, and his friendly personality will make him a great man with whom to serve. ERIC CHARLES SIMMONS Eric, from nearby Arlington, Virginia, came to Navy with blue and gold in his eyes, all set to spend the rest of his life in the Navy. He quickly calmed down, however, and set out to find out what life was really like. A consistently high performer, Sims excelled in varsity athletics, academics, and leadership. He didn ' t let this All-American Boy image hold him back, however; he was always ready to set out after a good time. Eric ' s mam love of life was crew. With his ability to deal with people, both junior and senior to him, Eric has a promising career ahead of him. FALL i3(«;( JAMES BUTLER SLAIGHT, IV Sitting in his lifeguard stand on South Beach, Staten Island, young James often conjured up visions of blue and gold. Realizing his fondest dreams, our web-footed hero joined the ranks of the Brigade with high hopes and tremendous enthusiasm. Jimmy optimistically tackled the academics by assuming a Weapons major, a task which required superhuman efforts and yielded slim results. But undaunted, he spent long hours, slide rule in hand, slaving over the books. His affinity for academics is only outdone by his attraction to water; Jimmy should have been born with gills. Singing and oldie but goodies and dreaming of his blue MGB, Jimmy could always be found in the natatorium. Jimmy ' s bound- less energy and competence will benefit the service. JAMES WALTER SPEER Jim, a native of Upper St. Clair Township, Bridgeville, Penn- sylvania, entered the Academy with the Class of ' 68, by the grace of God and SecNav, after spending a year at Bullis Prep getting his grades " up " . It took only a year though for Jim and the academic board to decide that ' 69 would be more fun. Since then, Jim has excelled (•■) in academics especially Bull, where he was always good, particularly in history. His athletic prowess has been dis- played in intramural football, soccer, lacrosse and swimming sub squad. This young man ' s perseverance and determination should be a very valuable asset to the Naval Service and to that special someone who has been patiently waiting for the past 6 ' i years. PATRICK DENNIS SULLIVAN Sully hails from Silver Spring, Maryland, and was graduated from St. John ' s College High School in Washington, DC. Fighting off the Executive Department on one hand and the academic deparments on the other. Sully seemed to never let the system get the best of him. When not out sailing one of the Academy yawls, he could be found either in the pad or lining up a date for the coming weekend A ward of the EH G Department, term papers were his nemesis. His broad smile and easy-going manner will stand him in good stead where ever he goes and whatever his endeavor THOMAS JAMES VERRENGIA A native of Paterson, New Jersey, Tom came to USNA via Bullis Prep. After a year as a member of the plebe football team, Tom decided to devote all his time and energy to his studies. Academics were no easy thing for him, but with great skill he managed to stay one step ahead of the board. Swimming, a basic requirement for a sailor of the high seas, was one of Tom ' s strong points which was evident by the many hours he spent in the instruction pool. Of the many positions Tom held, the most important was I.C.O.P. (in charge of Pepperoni). A great girl, a fine career in aviation and opportunities untold await this easiest i going guy in the company. 308 12th Company FALL SET: CDR: D. C. Overheim. SUB-CDR: A. G. Van Sant; CPO: W. Morgan, Jr. MI TY The members of " the dirty dozen ' 69 " leave behind them many varied memories and impressions. The playboys and partiers always managed to find or create excitement and fun, with their frequent " D. C. runs " often ending up at a certain American U. sorority. The raucous Notre Dame youngster juicer and the wardroom segundo beer blast were events that attest to these stalwart young men ' s efforts to loosen tensions without tightening the system. After successive burning-of-the-day ceremonies service selection rolled around, and magically five Marines appeared, the sane balance of twelve going about evenly into the other branches of naval service. One of the better " cliques " of the labyrinthine complex of Bancroft Hall, the dirty dozen will well remember times spent together as they reflect over the past days of Academy life. WINTER SET: CO.

ERIC ARTHUR ARLLEN Rick came to the Academy from Pennsauken, New Jersey Although not an aspiring scholar, his enthusiasm and sense of humor have kept him in good standing in spite of the academic department. Never one to let time slip by neglected by idleness. Rick was always busy with some project; the biggest one being acquisition of a complete stereo system. His many interests in- clude sports cars and marl inspike seamanship. An avid sailor. Rick has spent many a weekend on the Chesapeake. A strong appreci- ation for good music led him to membership in the Chapel Choir. Rick ' s sincerity and dedication to duty are characteristics which promise to produce a naval officer who is a credit to himself and to the class of 1969. EDWARD GEORGE BANNAT The transition from his small pond in New Jersey to the ocean of Annapolis affected Ed ' s performance very little. He came to us straight from high school with laurels and a determination to achieve his place in life in all fields. Partially due to his last period rallies, he has had a very impressive record, with consistent Super- intendent ' s Lists academically, participation in plebe and varsity football and winning his " N " in wrestling. He has allowed no facet of personal growth to go undeveloped and is well liked and respected by all with whom he comes in contact. His plans after graduation are narrowing as selection time approaches and with his potential, any branch will benefit from his joining their ranks. ALBERT EUGENE BENNETT Bert arrived at Navy from the midwestern town of Aurora, Illinois. His athletic ability made plebe year a little easier, as he played football and wrestled on the frosh teams. As the years passed, Bert tried hard to remain dedicated to his studies, in order to keep up with his demanding Applied Science minor. Friendship was a quality that he easily shared with others, especially members of the opposite sex. Having fun was one of Bert ' s primary goals at USNA, and whether the joke was on him or someone else, you could count on hearing his well known laugh. After leaving the Severn Shores, the fleet will gain a truly dependable and career motivated Naval Officer. CHARLES RICHARD CARROLL Although Chuck came directly to the Academy after gradu- ation from a small town high school in Sedro Woolley, Washing- ton, Navy life was not really new to him. Chuck spent two years in the reserves preparing for his new way of life. Noted for his academic achievements in high school, he also developed into a fine all-around athlete while here at the Academy especially excel- ling in handball. Always ready with a smile. Chuck was one of the popular members of the company. His scholastic prowess enabled him to maintain a good average and to help troubled classmates. Chuck ' s enthusiasm and motivation will be his greatest assets throughout his career. MICHAEL THOMAS DINNEGAN Dusty came to the Naval Academy after a year at Manhattan College. Although he was used to the easy life of a college student, he quickly adapted the system to his way and handled plebe year with no trouble. Dins liked the Bull Department but never got along too well with the others. In sports he looks back on battalion boxing followed by some hard work in Brigade Boxing. Dusty ' s many leisure hours were spent over a hot tape recorder and turn table searching for that old sound. With his easy going personality and sense of humor. Dusty will have an interesting future. WILLIAM ROBERT GARLAND Bill came to USNA from NAPS which, he claimed, rhymed with SAPS. Everyone soon found out, though, that whatever truth there was to that statement, it didn ' t apply to " garbs " . With characteristic diligence, he made it through that first year and laughed his way to a physics minor in the next three years. But he worked hard while he laughed and proved to the academic depart- ment that he really did know something. What we ' ll always re- member most about Bill, though, is his contagious sense of humor Whenever a guy felt low. Bill was ready with a few insults that would crack you up and, thanks to Bill, you were soon laughing at yourself. 311 ROGER HERSHEL HENDERSON Rog, a Navy junior, calls the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains near Charlottesville, Virginia his home, A hard worker, he kept a safe lead on the academic department. However, main taming a great dislike for Sampson Hall he fought a continuous four year battle with the Skinny Department, Out of the academic world Rog was a member of the Gun Club and the backbone of his company sports with fieldball and Softball his specialities " Hendy " could often be seen running on Farragut Field at the crack of dawn, keeping in shape, Rog always held his professional duties among the most important things at the Academy. His ded ication and hard working manner will make him a credit to the service THEODORE CARL KRAL Hailing from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Ted came to the Acad- emy bringing with him an outstanding record of athletics and school leadership from Montour High School. A Big Ten League All-Star and member of the AII-W.P.I.A.L football team, Ted quickly put his football talents to work for the Navy team winning a varsity N during his Youngster year. Acaden-iically he was a hard worker and was rewarded by making the Superintendent ' s List several times. The enviable qualities of his outstanding character are the assets with which Ted will embark on his career. His journey, wherever it may take him, cannot but be rewarding and successful. I DALE BRUCE LAWSON When Bruce came to Annapolis in June of 1965, he discovered that Academy life was a far cry from the carefree high school days he had enjoyed in Clearwater, Florida. Always active in sports, Bruce especially enjoyed playing rugby with a capital " R " . As for extracurricular activities, you could find him doing almost any- thing - wheeling and dealing for the Lucky Bag, NACA and hitching flights to Florida. Bruce ' s kind of friendship is something that ' s not easy to find and not easy to lose. Whatever field he chooses to enter, he will be a credit to himself and to the Navy But first in his thoughts is his fiancee, Sherry and their plans for a June Week wedding. TIMOTHY ANGUS McBRIER Tim, known to all as " Mac " , was raised in Georgia and is mighty proud of it, |ust ask him. He decided to follow in his father ' s footsteps and become a naval officer and since there is no Naval Academy in Georgia, he came here. Even though Tim may have lost a few battles with the academic and Executive Depart ments, he never lost an argument. His greatest asset is his confi dence. whether it is on the rugby field, or starting a term paper two hours late, he does it with confidence. The Navy will be getting a fine officer and one they certainly will never forget. ROBERT CLAYTON McDONOUGH, JR. Bob ' s main objective since he left Camp Lejeune, North Caro- lina has been to return there wearing not blue but green. Everyone that knows Bob would agree that he will succeed, since he is known for his ambition and ability to excel in all that he under- takes Bob has been a consistent member of the Dean ' s List and he stands in the top five per cent of his class. Along with playing plebe squash. Bob has been a standout in intramural sports Known among his classmates as one who frequently expounds on the finer aspects of a naval life, Bob ' s exceptional personality and maturity have made him many good friends. The Corps will indeed benefit from his outstanding attributes. FREDERICK HAYES MICHAELIS, JR. Mike came to the Naval Academy after spending one year at Old Dominion College in Norfolk, Virginia He found plebe year quite an experience and his more than ready smile earned him the dubious distinction of being the first one fried in his class. Even though academics were a constant source of anxiety for " Mic " , he always found a girl with whom to worry when the weekend came. Mike spent many hours wrestling on the varsity squad, swimming with the scuba club and misappropriating chow from the messhall. Although undecided as to his service preference, Mike ' s love of the military and pride in himself will make him a success no matter which branch he chooses. ' 312 A DIOIME BETITA MOHAMMED Dione came to the Academy from the Phillipines with the special challenge of facing a completely new way of life. He made the transition not only from the civilian to the military but also from the Asian outlook to the American orientation with great success. Taking overloads, he managed to go for two majors; one in Politics and Economics and the other in Applied Science. Despite his demanding academic program, he has kept a consistent place in both the Superintendent ' s and the Dean ' s Lists. Based on what he did here, we are confident that he has a promising future with the Philippine Navy. WILLIAM MORGAN, JR. Bill came to the Academy from high school in Binghamton, New York. After fighting it out with the academic department plebe year. Bill discovered that grades are directly proportional to sleep and thus made Superintendent ' s List Youngster year. With this new found secret Bill continued to excel academically the next three years. Outside of class Bill was active in the Antiphonai Choir, a member of the Gun Club, and played company football, soccer, basketball and Softball Always ready for a good " work out " , Morgs could be found on rainy days stretched out on the mat in Macdonough Hall, counting the panes of glass in the roof. Bill ' s intelligence, quick thinking and friendly manner should all help him to become an outstanding Naval officer. DOUGLAS F. MUIR During his four years here Doug has compiled few major titles or honors, but he does hold many a minor claim to fame not a few with which involve his prestige and monetary lucretive achieve- ment on the links and the arm wrestling pit. His casual, devil may care is just a thin veneer hiding a conscientious attitude in all facets of Academy life, except perhaps academics. Doug ' s amazing reading list is extensive and ranged from science fiction to novels and supercedes all more scholarly pursuits. Only one aspect of Doug ' s life here reveals his avid reading and that is his oldie record collection - played on his oldie stereo which he claims will become a negatively accelerating mass on graduation day — from the fourth deck of Mother B. DAVID CHARLES OVERHEIM A native of Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, Dave began his college career at the University of Mississippi on an NROTC scholarship. Since coming to the Academy he has shown a variety of talents. Selecting a ship propulsion minor and adding many electives, Dave has maintained a good average, repeatedly finding himself on the Dean ' s and Superintendent ' s Lists. A responsible attitude earned him the position of advertising manager of the LUCKY BAG and he has been active in other class functions. Afternoons found " Ovs " helping out his company soccer, football and Softball teams, and most of Dave ' s weekends were spent dragging his girl from back home. After graduation, Dave looks forward to a June Week wedding and a successful career. Wy - - jk el : MICHAEL JES PROVENCHER From the state of Maine and Serenity Hill came " Bullet " with several pounds of civilian flab, but after a rigorous Plebe summer it was all military flab. After a try at Plebe football Mike restricted most of his athletic interests to weightlifting and along with having the biggest love handles in the Brigade, he also holds the 1967 Brigade weightlifting record. Mike made a good showing academ- ically too, getting Superintendent ' s List once. Bullet never spoke too much but whenever he said something, it was profound and thought provoking. One statement that will always be remembered - " When life bites, you gotta bite back. " PETER RODMAN RENFREE Pete came to Navy from the " accent lane " of Fairhaven, Massachusetts. He carried an infinite source of humor and a year of education from Villanova University. This was more than enough to slide Pete through his plebe year. His dedication was easily found by either watching the heavyweight crew team row to the groans of their fellow oarsman, or seeing him strive for the right note at a Glee Club concert. " Peetah " is one of the few Midn who has the distinction of earning his " Ritchie Highway Medal " . He spent many hours riding both the academic and transportation curves to rate this honor. After leaving the " School on the Ches- apeake " , Uncle Sam will gain a truly outstanding " Nephew " who holds many admirable qualities. MICHAEL PAUL RISHEL Mike or " Rip " to his friends came to Annapolis from New York State and quickly established himself as one of the greatest " gedunk " lovers in Naval Academy history. Mike picked up a new racquet game, squash, during plebe summer and with a deciated effort won his varsity " N " and served as captain of the team. During the off season he enjoyed other sports like bowling and golf. He did well in academics but was never one to let assignments break up a good bridge game. Upon graduation. Mike plans on following in the footsteps of his father by earning the gold wings of a Naval aviator and there is no doubt that Pensacola will be getting one of Navy ' s best. RONALD MICHAEL SEDGLEY Known to his classmates as " Sedge " , Ron hails from West Orange, New Jersey where he was known for his swimming prowess. A stalwart of the Navy swim team, Ron won his first varsity " N " after three years of hard swimming. Sailing, scuba diving, surfing and a minor in Naval Architecture complete the list of his nautical endeavors. Ron possessed an enviable drive which helped him to continually surmount all the difficulties that he ever encountered. If there was a job to do you could depend on Ron to get It done. Ron ' s love for the sea is second only to Navy Air which IS his service selection. He will always be a credit to himself and to the service. WESLEY CRAIG STANFIELD Wes came to Navy after graduating as valedictorian of his class at Sheridan High School in Denver, Colorado. Because of his scholastic achievement, he was always willing and able to help anyone with their academic problems. After plebe year finally ended, " Stan " got pinned to that pad monster. He would only leave her fo r his other two loves: the weight machine and spread- ing The Good News. Wes was often running around for either NACA, the OCU, or the Antiphonal Choir. He also added spirit to the multiplicity of company and battalion sports he participated in. Wes ' s good nature, friendliness and willingness to help anyone will distinguish him as an officer and leader while flying Navy Air. MICHAEL GEORGE STRAND Michael left Hawaii and an outstanding high school record to meet new challenges at USNA. He soon gained his footing and joined the Brigade Hop Committee to help his classmates meet those " Young lovelies. " After breezing through plebe year, he accepted the tedious tasks of 1969 Lucky Bag Business Manager and his much needed file cabinet made his room look like another company office. Mike often burned the midnight oil while he pumped out the multitude of required term papers for his Foreign Affairs minor. For relaxation, he foundered around in the pool, but his efforts were not in vain: he swam on both the plebe and varsity teams. We know that his capacity for hard work, his love of action and his social grace will destine this all around individual to success in the Navy. 314 J H i I MICHAEL T.SWANSON Often heard from the depths of the O ' Hare Room was the cry of Pipes! Pipes! Pipes ' where Michael and friends spent many a smolce filled afternoon weathering many a storm. Calling Coro- nado, California home, young Michael found few places to surf on the Severn, so when he wasn ' t strumming on his guitar or con- tently puffing on a friendly calabash, his heart was often dreaming of smooth waves on the California coast. In the winter, times were spent in the natatorium as a competent performer and " N " winner on the swimming team. The strict discipline of Academy life, academics and girls never seemed to phase Michael, as he could take them or leave them, which often he did. Michael intends to follow in the footsteps of his father as a fine Naval Officer. ARTHUR GREGORY TEVES Leaving behind the sun and surf on Honolulu, Greg came to us after a year at the University of Hawaii. A man of great will power, he has dedicated many hours to the academic routine here at Navy; yet always managed to find time to enjoy his pipe and a good bull session with the boys. A great competitor, Greg could be found enjoying company sports on any afternoon and supporting our varsity teams on the weekends. Showing diversity, the " kanak " has an outstanding sound system, was on the Ring and Crest Committee and will always be remembered for his keen professional knowledge. Navy ' s surface fleet will definitely be proud of have Greg join her ranks. KENNETH MICHAEL TURE Ken bounced straight to the Academy from Trenton High School in Trenton, New Jersey Here he developed his new found love of sailing on the varsity shields team so well he became captain of the team his first class year, A perfectionist. Ken also lent his talents to championship battalion lacrosse and handball teams. On the Sundays he did not sail. Ken showed his love of children by teaching Sunday School. He was also a faithful mem- ber of the NACA and OCU. " The Hunk " was always willing to help anyone and many nights his studies gave way to counselling sessions. His cartoons, and pictures brightened every room he lived in A find Math and Deutsch student. Ken should find great use for his qualities as he proves that " Navy Air is mighty fair. " ANDREW GEORGE VAN SANT Young Andrew, a mid-westerner, gentleman and above all, an athlete came to the Severn, as the Kenoshans of Wisconsin wished him well, with illusions of what a brilliant college career could mean for an All-American high school football player Two years later such conservative thinking became disillusionment as Andrew abandoned a football career for the spicy life of a weightlifter. He soon learned that a pipe, just as a woman, can be a man ' s best friend, and he has often been observed strolling the hallowed streets of Annapolis smoking a Calabash, with a sweet young thing hooked on one of his massive arms, puffing away contentedly. Wherever he goes, easy going Andrew will be a welcome addition to the Navy. ■» JAMES GEAREY WARD Jim came to the Academy from Verona High, New Jersey as the first step towards a Navy Air specialty (thus " Big John " can ' t accept full credit for his enjoyment of segundo summer flight training). Scholastically, Jim ' s interests have been centered in the EH Govt Department, with obvious implications regarding the core courses. Winter afternoons would find him with the company basketball team, while fall and spring afternoons were reserved for cross country (looking toward a third straight N-star season) and outdoor track managing. This cramped his participation in the AIAA, but not in the Antiphonal Choir. With these demands on his time, Jim ' s thoughts still strayed to Carolyn and the future challenge and responsibility offered to a Naval line officer JAMES FRANCIS WATSON Jack ' s Reef, in upstate New York, bid a sorrowful goodbye when Jim left to " Join the Navy " , mainly because his departure reduced the village ' s population to double figures, " Mr. Every- thing " at Jordan Elbndge High School, Jim coasted easily into the rigors of plebe year and upperclass life, always excelling on the athletic field and m the academic classroom. The Superintendent ' s List spotted him now and then, but nothing hindered Diamond Jim ' s almost continued maintenance of slope zero with the pad. A true connoisseur of music, he offered stalwart support to the lung section of the Drum and Bugle Corps. Wherever he goes and whatever he undertakes, Jim will always reflect the highest esteem of the Academy and the Naval Service. 315 FALL SET: BATT-CDR: G B Jones; SUB CDR: S. M. Quennoz; OPSOFF: R. C.

After having the NAAA Intercompany Athletic Cup in our possession for four years in a row, the 13th Company Firsties dropped the sack this year (witness, for instance, the completely defeated soccer season). Perhaps the most outstanding characteristic of the 13th Company this year was that it was a happy company. The First Class and our zealous submariner worked harmoniously together notwithstanding the P-rade grades of the 13th Infantry Company. Despite grumblings about The Tube, swimming in the Severn in November, and the parking lot incident, we were happy; however, things weren ' t always slack for we had our sheriffs. SPRING SET: CO. CDR: K. E. Dodge; SUB-CDR: W E Girardet; CPO: J. M. Gunter. 13th COMPANY OFFICER LT J S, Baumstark, USN JERI DONALD BALSLY Bals hailed from Madeira High School in Cincinnati, Ohio to become a football hero at Navy. A local college even formed the Jery Balsly Fan Club after he ran through the green fence at practice A master of nonchalance. Navy jargon and girls, the Bals always had a smile and a good word for everyone. Neither regu- lation, academics nor defensive tackles slowed him down as he eased his way through the four years at the Academy. No B.S. session was complete without Whale ' s well thought out philoso- phies. Behind his jovial, easygoing manner is a seriousness and dedication that should, along with his strong belief in his personal codes, allow Jeri to weather any storm and ride the waves of good fortune for the rest of his life JOHN F. BONE John came to the Academy right out of high school in Wilkes- Barre, Pennsylvania. Affectionately known as " Boner " , he spent quite a bit of his time in the ' Ark ' in an obvious attempt to defy the Academic Dean. Not to be done in by the Dean, Boner decided that 69 was better than civilian line. His friendly smile and easy going manner made many tough weeks easier for his class- mates. His pride and spirit proved him a leader on the intramural athletic fields. Not being one to miss a party, John traveled famous Route 50 to D.C. almost as much as Stribling Walk. His leadership and friendliness will undoubtedly be an asset as the fleet obtains one of our finest after graduation. L E. F. CARR -M— IS a man of many paradoxes. He is well known for his hard hitting style of football, but off the field, he is jovial and easygoing. Probing a little deeper you will find he is also a very serious philosopher who runs his life by strict adherence to self conceived principles Although never known to spend long hours behind open books, he can argue circles around scholars on any subject. Although firm in his convictions his open mind never denies the truth of anything until he has thoroughly studied it. This, combined with his other abilities, will make him a standout among men. RICHARD ANTHONY D ' AREZZO " How did you get a ' t ' out of two ' z ' s? " Although we never did really understand, we took Rick ' s word for it. Retz made the transition to Academy life quickly, seeming to encounter fewer obstacles than most of us. Although Rick never starred, academics held no terror for him, as he was on the Supt ' s List every semester without ever having to work too hard - such an asset is indeed invaluble. But only after sharing the Academy ' s hardships and joys with him does one recognize Rick ' s most outstanding qualities, his easy-going personality, loyalty and pride in a job well done, made him an excellent roommate and a lasting friend. 1 KENNETH EDWARD DODGE The Dodger found his way to us barefoot from a little borough located in a crevice in the Rockies. Likeable and enthusiastic, he quickly gained the respect of his classmates. His round and jovial face, cowboy hat and boots, and his thirst for the finer things that midshipmen life had to offer made him a natural leader. Aca- demics were an ease as he even once managed a 4.0. The Navy is the Dodger ' s calling and he will serve with distinction. His natural ease among all people, initiative and resourcefulness will aid him greatly. To Kenner we all wish a life of smooth sailing. ANDREW SCALES DOWD, JR. Andy entered Navy Tech with a driving ambition to become a Naval Officer. His love for the Navy continues to grow and not even the Doctors can sever his desires. He energetically strives for perfection in everything from sports to teaching his kindergarten Sunday school class and settles for nothing less than his best. His best IS only emphasized by the beauty of the girls which keep him company Andy is a manager from the word go! I From the depths of Luce Hall he has learned well the inter-workings and hidden mechanisms of what keeps the Navy going. His ambition, knowl- edge and love of the service promise a bright career for this tine officer and gentleman 320 I ! i I WAYNE EVAN GIRARDET Wayne, better known as " Wedge, " came to USNA directly from East Aurora High School in New York. Coming from a long line of Naval officers, Wayne adapted easily to Academy life excelling in all he attempted academically, professionally and athletically. Batt. squash, Softball and heavyweight football were among his interests during the academic months. A Navy man at heart, " Wedge " kept in the highest traditions of the service by maintaining a girl from virtually every port during the summer cruises. Upon his return to the academic routine, however, Wayne managed to focus his attention on one port as well as one special girl. The Plebe Detail occupied most of his 2 c Summer, however, Wayne was exposed to Navy Air, his chosen field. Wherever he goes, Wayne ' s personality and professionalism will aid him in his Naval career. JOSEPH MICHAEL GUNTER Joe came to the Naval Academy after graduating from Chicora High School and a year at the College of Charleston, A native of Charleston Heights, South Carolina, Joe was the first of his family to follow the sea. His rather quiet and attentive character gave the appearance of a studious individual, though he tried to deny it. An avid sports fan, Joe became a mainstay on the company touch football and Softball teams. He was never known to turn down an opportunity to go fishing or hunting. Joe ' s ability to apply himself and do his best will guarantee his success in what ever he may choose. KEN L. HALPERN The genius you see in this picture hails from the shores of Phoenix, Arizona. Between academic boards, E.I., and restriction, he still found plenty of time for practicing his track thing of broad and triple jumping. However, " Easy Ken " was never ineligible for partying and always made himself available for the right kind of girl. The tellies never had a night without Perns and the barber shop never had much trouble sweeping out his hair. He never had to worry about dying from eye strain but he constantly worried about motorcycle wrecks. Surely his new Corvette will lead him to new yuks and even greater speed. THOMAS MICHAEL KIRBY After arriving here from a year at Fayetteville Technical Insti- tute, " The Kirbs " became an example of the professional attitude that produces outstanding officers. He was active in the YP Squadron for three years, distinguishing himself in the salty life with early qualifications. Tom was not all military and continued his interest in physics from FTI by becoming an Associate Member of Sigma Pi Sigma. He could be counted on for any kind of help (except swimming E.I.), always unselfish toward others, he won many friends here. Considering the pride and dedication he puts into his work, Tom should have a successful career. ) DOUGLAS CRAIG KIRK Doug came to us a Navy junior. After a year at Purdue, he saw the ghmmering hght of Navy and came rushing. Having enjoyed the good college life, he quickly adapted to the ease of Navy life A varsity " squad " member, Doug could usually be found getting some E.I. under his blankets. A taste for the finer things in life consumed his free time. Always friendly, Doug ' s motto of " I ' m not fat . . . I just have a husky stomach " typified his easy-going nature. Academics were no trouble, once he decided a minor in Chemistry instead of a major would suffice. Doug will have a bright and a prosperous future with his devotion to duty. JOHN MICHAEL LOUNGE Mike is a man never satisfied with his own progress. After one year at the University of Colorado, he decided to try the Naval Academy. Mike didn ' t have any trouble adjusting to USNA and was well on his way toward selection for the Trident Scholar Program by the end of his plebe year. Mike always gave up much of his time to help others in academics. He found time to sing in both the Catholic Choir and Glee Club, play drums for the Outriggers and work on the Lucky Bag Staff. Mike is a man with mature insight and great ambition and he has the dedication to hard work that will make him successful in any endeavor. WILLIAM P. McCAULEY If he hasn ' t lost himself, Fucaul could be found at the high jump pit either practicing or catching some rays. After four years at Archbishop Molloy High School on the shores of Long Island, Regis brought his analytical mind to the Academy in hopes of pursuing a Math ma|or. He decided later that being a more well- rounded person with a Math Minor was more important. De- pending on the season, free time could find Bill either on his surf board, at a ski lodge, at the woods with his motorcycle or hunting for babbling brooks in his Corvette, his primary objective - finding the " perfect party. " Bill will be a success wherever he goes with his bubbling (or is that carbonated) personality and friendly " hi-ya " for anyone he meets. JAY M. MUNNINGHOFF Munns entered this boat school having spent two years at the University of Cincinnati. Very athletic, Munns was the mainstay of several Batt football, lacrosse and fieldball teams. Often long after the games, he could be found in the hospital having his bones reassembled. Despite his many injuries, he gained life long mem- bership in the Yuk, a night club by his flaming tennis balls and his catapults. (The Thomas Edison of the 13th Company) Munns chose mathematics as his major, but advanced calculus quickly changed that to a math minor. He has always been looked to for leadership; and his easy-going character, friendliness and sincerity will always prove invaluable to him in his career. TIMOTHY WALLEN OLIVER After a highly successful high school career in Indianapolis, Indiana, Tim elected to follow in his older brother ' s footsteps to the Academy. An outstanding leader and student, Tim soon se- cured a position near the top of the class both militarily and academically, he received the Carl Vinson leadership award at the end of our Youngster year. Continuing to contribute his abilities to the Brigade, Tim found time to participate in the Glee Club, Chapel Choir, French Club, Foreign Relations Club and NAFAC, as well as aiding the company ' s intramural efforts in basketball, soccer and football. Maintaining this pace through first class year, Tim was one of our Trident Scholars. With his ability and am- bition, Tim is certain to be successful in anything he undertakes. HUGH JAMES O ' NEILL Hailing from Bridgeton, New Jersey, which he says is the tomato capital of the world, Hugh quickly gained the friendship and respect of his classmates through his quiet thoughtful nature A rugged competitor, this stubborn Irishman made his mark on various battalion and company sports squads during his years at Navy. His true love, however, was the varsity pistol team which he helped drive to a victory over Army A hard worker and dedicated individual, Hugh is sure to become a truly fine officer and a credit to the Naval Service. 322 CARL HENRY OOSTERMAN " Boot " came to the banks of the Severn straight from high school in Framingham, Massachusetts, a suburb of " Bahston " , which one could quickly perceive by his constant praise of the Celtics and the Red Sox. Carl enjoyed knocking a fevu heads as he helped his Company football, soccer and baseball teams achieve success. When it came to academics, Carl showed seemingly endless energy. Few were the times when he couldn ' t be found pushing a T-square or a slipstick in his room. But the work paid off with high class standing and a 4.0 average second class year. We all wish him luck as his hard work and determination continue to make the road to success smooth sailing for " Choo. " MICHAEL ALLAN PAYNE Following a varied and exciting life as an Army Brat and a year at Columbian Preparatory School Mike saw the light and joined the Navy side of the fence with much enthusiasm. Company soccer and lightweight football kept ' MAP ' busy during the fall and winter, while the Spanish Club and frequent " bull sessions " were other important interests. Perhaps one of his greatest dis- tinctions at the Academy was his swimming prowess, where he somehow managed to survive four years of swimming sub squad. Although never an academic whiz, Mike managed to keep his grades high enough to spend his weekends enjoying other aspects of Academy life. BRYAN LEWIS PERSON Bryan left the wide open spaces of Marshall, Texas to pursue a career over or below the great oceans of the world, coming to us fortified with the tools necessary to wage a successful war with the academic department. Blending intramural sports, physical prowess, girls, a calm temper and humor with his academic endeav ors earned Bryan several nicknames. The one most cherished by him and his friends is " Bad Alfa " , which will endure throughout his Naval career. B. A. ' s conscientious effort to expand his professional knowledge and his earnest pursuit m the service he believes in guarantee a successful career. LAURENCE ROGER PLUMB Laur ' s antics were well known to his company mates He was always able to find something humorous in what appeared to be the most serious situations — a trait that should serve him well as a future officer. He always made the impression he was never studying but we knew better because when grade cards came out he was always up there. He ran cross country and track and helped his team to three Brigade Championships. The future is a big beckoning door of Laur and his wish is to see the stars someday. We hope he makes it. h i MARSHALL EMMANUEL RACHMIEL " Rack " came to the Academy from the shores of Miami Beach. After two years in the Fleet, he realized his officer potential and received his appomtment after a year at NAPS. ECA ' s were " Rack ' s " bag Without his finesse in the organizational and mana- gerial arts, the Spanish Club. Class Picnics. Class Directory, Class Stationery and this LUCKY BAG would not have existed. " Rack " combined his management talents with his ability to avoid physical exertion and became the varsity track manager. Nights would find " The Sword " either making the rounds with his famed " mini-visit " or on his personal phone. Marshall will always be remembered for his confident manner and practical outlook, and for his unending ability to accomplish any task, RICHARD KEVIN RUFNER " Ruf " . straight from high school in Kettering, Ohio chose Navy over Air Force. Rick has many achievements to be proud of during his stay with Mother B. Although he spent many hours writing letters and on the blue trampoline, he managed to excel in academics and take part in various extracurricular activities. Rick may have considered Ohio invincible in sports, but he could always be seen cheering on Navy teams all year ' round, and, despite an " ungainly " run. Rick was an active member of com- pany and battalion sports squads with Brigade Champion numerals in tennis. Always ready to hear all your problems. Rick won many friends with his ready advice and warm smile. A hard worker. Rick has a bright future ahead in the Navy. GEORGE SKILLMAN SARA George, an Air Force junior, came to Navy well-traveled but claiming Rutland, Vermont as home. He was one of the privileged few who found the academic groove immediately, which freed time for such athletic endeavors as J.V. soccer, batt lacrosse, company football and German Club and Antiphonal Choir in the extracurricular field. George has always managed to amuse a small but devoted following with the twists and turns of his love life. When not dragging the girls, he managed to find time to loiter with the " boys " at some of those tremendous bull sessions. No matter where George goes in the Navy, he will take an affinity for a few grins and a high degree of professionalism. ROY HERBERT SUBERLY, JR. " Subs " was always a bright face in a dark crowd and the room was always filled with other " areo people " looking for the " how " of It. The afternoons found him a star on the company sports teams and the weekends . . . well, he never seemed to lack for laughing, shapely companionship. Never one to over-value things, Roy had his share of run ins with the Executive Department, but never let it affect him Roy is a very conscientious worker and a well rounded individual, and if he ever learns the country has 40 states besides Florida ( " Come and Live In . . . " not withstanding! the Navy will be far better for him. « A FALL SET: CDR: J. H. Feder; SUB-CDR A. R Hager; CPO: M. P. McGee. WINTER SET: CO. CDR: R. J. Sanderson: SUB-CDR A. J. Gallaher: CPO: P. A. Marsh. There were thirty-six of us on that 30th day in June who took the oath. We quickly fell into the sheltered life of Hick ' s Honchos and McQueen ' s Friendly Blue Jays. We were sorry to see the good tinnes of Plebe Summer pass, but they did and we buckled down to the business of academics. Our numbers were depleted by the loss of seven of us during the length of Plebe year. Those of us that were left formed a very close-knit group that would remain so until graduation. Through four years we all managed to slide while performing admirably. We were within the top five, including first, in colors for the first three years. This spirit was also apparent on the athletic field with three Brigade champion football teams and a regimental champ. Our true spirit and unit will most be remembered in the many Vat Fourteens and functions such as the Sports Car Rally. These four years will finally be ushered out at two-thirty on June fourth with the first Hitching of one of Hick ' s Honchos. SPRING SET: CO. CDR: M. A. Saraniero, SUB CDR: T D. Meteer; CPO: C. S.

After making it through Plebe year unscathed, the " gray eagle " , switched his attention from the upper class to the academic department, with which he had a running battle. Second class year, he saw the accumulation of some gravy and a Math minor. " E.P. " proceeded to bring glory to his company by excel- ling on the intramural soccer and sailing teams. With his fine personality and his avid interest in Navy line, he is sure to become a worthwhile addition to the fleet. RICHARD ANTHONY CATALDI Cat came to Navy from Sharpsville, Pennsylvania and spent most of his time here waiting for opportunities to go back. Christmas, Spring and summer leaves were the areas in which he excelled. He waged a continuous war with the academic depart- ments, though not always successfully. Needless to say, he was a regular on the Supt ' s mailing list. His afternoons were occupied with volleyball, football (Brigade Champion lightweight team) and Softball. He also brought up the rear of the company in parade and ran a regular check of his pad to make sure it was in working order. His sense of humor and ready smile will follow him wher- ever he goes. H.PARKER CONSAUL Parker, or HPC III, left Kansas City social life for the Naval Academy and the Naval Service. Perhaps the best blocker on the three year Brigade Championship 14th Company heavyweight football team. Parker ' s interests in academics made him a regular on the Dean ' s and Supt ' s Lists. His hard working and easy going attitude will take him a long way in the service and build him a successful future in whatever he does. The world will see a loi more of Parker in the near future. He has an unlimited potential, this coupled with an honest smile and a virtuous personality insures it. CARL SMITH CHRISTIANSEN Carl came straight to the Academy from Cedar Grove, New Jersey, and he is proud of it. In his four years at Navy he has always been a hard worker in company projects, mainstay on the company soccer team, and an ever persistent opponent of the seventh wing weight machine. Carl was never one to complain, worry, or let a day go by without having a little fun. He could alvy ays pick out the good things in any situation and somehow forget about the rest This unusual quality gives " Crafty Carl " the unanimous choice for 14th Company humor merchant. Carl ' s hard working nature and genuinely positive outlook on life will be a credit to any branch of the Navy. 11 ' ■ JERRY LYN CREED Fresh from the Kansas " hills, " the " grunt " made his assault on the Naval Academy and Plebe Summer. He considered it " fruit " . The academic year dawned, as it invariably must, and he broke the first prerequisite for a marine candidate, that of a sagging Q P R. He was to find that the academic department, especially Naval Science, had quite an arsenal to draw, he soon joined the rest of us hopefuls. An avid ahtlete, Jerry found gymnastics, wrestling, soc- cer and football to his liking, helping the 14th company to the first double Brigade football championships in 1968. Of course, the Marine Corps is his first choice, but even if Navy Line got him he is sure to do mighty fine. n JOHN HEARD FEDER John came to Navy from Phillips Exeter Academy. Academics, having never come easily, John was forced to resort to hard work to attain Superintendent ' s List grades several semesters. Having the ability to go through life without making a single enemy it was soon apparent that his advice and friendship was highly prized by those close to him. The girls found his easy going nature totally irresistible - even though those girls that belonged to his close friends. With his pleasant disposition and undaunted determi- nation, John will be a credit to whatever line of service he chooses. ANTONE JOSEPH GALLAHER Tony IS a " Silent Service " junior who came to us via McLean, Virginia where he was captain of his high school basketball team and quarterback for the football team. He is known for his love of sports, painted rocks, and as a charter member of VAT14. He is well liked and respected by his classmates as he served extended tours as both company representative and honor representative. Tony played plebe football and intramural basketball, football and sailing. He is best known for being the person to wear the most asphalt off of the basketball courts during a four year stay. Tony ' s zest for life is matched only by his desire to see it all. He ' ll be a welcome addition to the fleet. I SCOTT GEORGE GIER In the summer of 1965 Scott sacrificed his romantic existence in the paradise of Hawaii to brave the rigors of life at the Naval Academy. He met the challenge and proved himself capable with a strong determination and a well used pad. Being a well rounded individual, his academic excellence was matched only by his athletic prowess, especially his agility on the blue trampoline. As a popular member of his class he could always be counted on to put on a good show at the frequent company parties. His only fault, his thinning hair, made him the target of many good-humored jokes. Scott ' s tireless spirit and realistic view of life should make him a success in any career. ALAN RICHARDS HAGER Alan came to the Academy from the sunshine state of Florida. Growing up in Ormond Beach and being an excellent surfer. Navy was quite a change in many respects for him. The " endless sum- mer " which greeted him upon arriving at Navy was not exactly the one he was constantly dreaming of. " Never let your studies inter- fere with your education " and " The game is not till Saturday afternoon, " were favorite sayings that Alan treasured and lived by. Accumulating many friends and compiling a fine record at the Academy, Alan was the personification of the easy going, fun- loving fellow who, if he ever had any worries, never worried about them enough to let anyone know. MICHAEL JOHN HESTER Mike was perhaps one of the most promising young athletes ever to come to Navy. He was a star halfback on the plebe football team and a sprinter on the track team, but, as luck might have it, he injured his knee during Spring ball, never again to return to the gridiron. Mike came to the Academy from New Mexico Military Institute, which he attended for a year to pursue his excellence in not only football but also academics. Mike had little trouble in winning the admiration of his classmates and all others he came in contact with for the sincerity in his words and deeds were self evident. RONALD PAUL LESSMANN Ron came to Canoe U. from the " Gateway to the West, " St. Louis, Missouri. R. P., as his classmates affectionately call him, has had a tough time adjusting to the military way of life. Even Ron ' s ever fun loving outlook had its trying moments when he had to bear the " blue wrench. " When the call came for his help on the intramural fields, R. P. could always be counted on for top support in basketball, Softball and volleyball. Tackling academics with much enthusiasm, he constantly made the Supt ' s List while pursuing his field of study in operations analysis. His individualism and persistent desire to do his best should carry him far in any chosen field of endeavor. 328 PAUL ALBERT MARSH Paul reported to the Naval Academy shortly after graduating TroTi Robert E. Lee High School in Baytown, Texas. He carried his ;. d interest in competitive athletics into the Brigade intramural r-r.gram where his most notable accomplishment was not drown- .r.g during any of the stormy water polo matches. Paul ' s philo- sophical mind has broadened in his stay at the Academy, and he considers his most valuable acquisition of knowledge to be a greater understanding of himself and others. Through his literature courses, he pursued human nature, an enlightening as well as enjoyable study. To those who got to know him, Paul always proved to be a conscientious and reliable friend. He is anticipating more years of learning about people in the Naval service. MICHAEL PAUL McGEE From the land of sunshine and bikim-clad girls — Rio Vista, California Mike, alias " Grog " , ' Toad " or " Sarge " , narrowly es- caped the grasp of the U.S. Marine Corps only to wind up at Navy. Forthright, he captured the hearts and respect of all with whom he came into contact (excepting a certain firstie). His amiable and easygoing nature were substituted with fierce aggressiveness on the athletic field. His competiveness earned respect in soccer, football and Softball. Never one to let academics override " cribbage " or " playboy " , he battled the Engineering Department to a standstill, and gained marks low enough to hopefully assure his desire to become a Marine, where he will certainly gain further admiration from his colleagues and his service. THOMAS DEWEY METEER After trying a year of civilian college life at the University of lois, Dewey came to the Academy from East St. Louis, Illinois. Soeedy and athletic, ' The Fly " has been an active participant in and valuable asset to intramural soccer, football and rugby teams. Sports, sleeping, soul sounds, the fine arts and the art of having fun hold most of " Gramps " interest. Academics have never been Dewey ' s favorite activity, and as a result he has had several close calls in the battle with his QPR. Always friendly, frequently witty, usually sleeping and seldom gloomy, Dewey ' s sincerity, industrl- ousness and likeable nature are sure to take him far in any career he pursues. EDWARD JOHN MURZINSKI After graduation from Linden High School the " Great Moth ' left the Garden State and Jersey Shore, with his bat and glove to spend a year at NAPS. Ed entered the Academy and while not an academic whiz kid, managed to do as well as the next man. His love of the finer things in life placed him as part of ' The Group " and made him the man " to know " if you ever needed anything. Ed ' s sense of humor and friendliness have won him many friends throughout the Brigade and insure him a very happy and success- ful life no matter what he undertakes m the future. I ROBERT THOMAS PEARCE Bob, and Air Force junior, prides himself in being from Cali- fornia. According to Bob, Sacramento is the only place to spend Christmas Leave. Bob can be a hard person to know and people all too often get the impression that nothing bothers him. Contrary to the concensus of opinion. Bob is human and a very thoughtful and considerate and sensitive person. Bob asks very little of people, but when he doe s, one always knows he is asking. Some have tried to label him a " mooch " . Bob prefers to call it bor- rowing. But it can be said of Bob that what ever he does he does quietly, neatly and properly. 1 MONROE GORDON PILAND Gordon came to the Naval Academy from Winston Salem, North Carolina. Here he found the opportunity to express and develop a variety of interests ranging from sports cars to an impressive major in Mathematics. An ardent, confident competitor in all fields, he is especially accomplished on the tennis courts. Admired for his exploits at the Vats, and turning his room into an executive suite, Gordon will probably be best remembered for bringing college to the Academy. Gordon places high value in being an individual and obtaining the best of what life has to offer. His warm sincerity and mature outlook have gained him the respect from all those who have had the pleasure of knowing him. JOHN REYNOLDS PRATCHIOS The Pratch, as he ' s known by all, came to us right out of high school from Erie, Pennsylvania. What he lacks in size, he ' s more than amply made up for in his aggressive but amiable personality. In his own words, he ' s wound tight, as evidenced by his contribu- tions to batt lacrosse. Perhaps John is best known for his ability in that dreaded of all subjects, wires. More than once he has given his classmates the gouge which has pulled them through quiz after quiz. Pratch is also widely acclaimed for his mechanical ability, especially in the fields of model building and slide rule repair. Liking him as we do, each of us wishes him continued success. STEPHEN MICHAEL QUENNOZ After many and varied travels as an Air Force junior, Steve came to the Academy following an illustrious high school career in Homestead, Florida. Maintaining his standard of personal excel- lence he soon distinguished himself as an outstanding individual among his classmates. A consistent Dean ' s List student, he stood in the top five percent of his class. His wide range of interests and broad knowledge served to make him an addition to any group and adept at coping with any situation. Acquiring a love for the guitar, he soon became known as the company " Bob Dylan. " Steve ' s high personal goals and outstanding ability assure him a prominent place in society. His manner and character make his friends proud to know him. ROBERT JOHN SANDERSON Bob came to the Academy from high school in Okinawa and a year as a " Rotsy " at the University of Kansas. His friendly, outgoing nature, combined with a true interest in the Navy, served to bring him success in all he undertook at " Navy. " Sandy ' s interests were indicative of his diversified personality; travel, books, sports and VAT-14 being the most evident. Plebe gymnas- tics, company soccer, football and Softball, an Aero minor and work on the Brigade Hop Committee, filled his remaining waking hours. Additionally, Bob became famous for his remarkable ability to converse expertly, humorously and at length on any and all subjects. Personality, ability and drive insure a great future for Bob in any field he chooses. 330 MICHAEL ANTHONY SARANIERO Mike is well recognized for his ability to say what the rest of us have on our minds. " Sarano " , an ill use of his last name, came to Navy from Bullis Prep where Mike dividied his time amongst academics, baby sitting and pest extermination. Although a hard worker and fine student, Sarano is better known for his party- livening personality. One of the original Vat-14 ' s, Mike many times has brought life to parties that otherwise might have flop- ped. Although he ' s constantly complaining about one injury or another, Mike loves to mix it up in football, rugby or fieldball. Mike is well respected and even better liked, this kid ' s got to make the big time. CHARLES ALFRED SCHAEFER Charlie came to us from his native town of Philly. During Plebe Summer, his room was singled out by the presence of " The Doner " , but he managed to survive to spite this handicap. Plebe academic year was another story. His skillful evasiveness permitted him to be unknown by most of the upperclass for the first part of the year. The electroman ' s ability to solve even the most elusive wires problem proved him to be a very popular man during the wee hours of the nite. His determination and competitive spirit that he showed on the varsity gymnastic team will carry him through a rewarding naval career. C ) JOHN DONALD SULLIVAN Through his good grades, John became known as the " man with the answers " , and much sought after for them. Although encouraging the image of a civilian in a uniform, " Sully ' s " vast naval knowledge reflected his true interests. An easygomg person, John never let the pressures of the intramural program upset his carefully designed afternoon snooze program. He preferred to get his exercise on the many sub squads of the Brigade. His hometown being Dallas, the " Pear " , so nicknamed for the silhouette he presented, is every bit a Texan, independent minded and sure of himself, John does not waste any effort, and where he applies his full abilities the results will stand for themselves. TERRENCE NORBERT TEHAN An active life at Calvert Hall High School in Baltimore pre- pared Terry well for the vigorous routine of the midshipmen. Besides his musical activities, he found time to become a sub- mariner, win his dolphins and acquire an abundance of profession- al knowledge. In sports, Terry slashed through on the plebe fencing team on which he won a silver medal and placed second on the Maryland state sabre team. Terry kept charging and also a member of three Brigade championship teams. In his spare time, he made the Dean ' s and Superintendent ' s lists. Terry ' s success can be attributed to his sharp mind and keen wit which kept his classmates in good humor. He is sure to succeed in all of his endeavors and have a good time while doing so. JAMES MICHAEL WALTERS One of Texas ' proud sons, Jim brought to Navy a sense of determination, a friendly personality and a great golfing ability. " Arnie " just missed lettering Youngster Year, but undaunted and doubly determined earned the number one, or on off weeks, the number two position of Navy ' s golf team, and the nickname " Gobble. " Always the life of any party, a founding father of the Vat, Jim could handle any liberty or leave Navy afforded him. As far as academic endeavors were concerned, Jim, true to form, set his sights high. And. with only an occasional set back (two a week or so), achieved some respectable grades. Jim is a sure bet in life. JOHN WAYNE WILSON Big Wils came to the Academy from Columbian Prep where he majored in obtaining an appointment from the Naval Reserve and in football. Perhaps Wayne ' s greatest desire at Navy was to succeed in varsity football and lacrosse. Towards this goal. Big Wils has devoted many long rugged hours in return for the admiration and respect of his fellow athletes not to mention his own sense of personal achievement. However, as the years rolled by, the black hand of the academic department called for more time than the gridiron. Wayne remained devoted to athletics always giving 100% of himself 100% of the time. Big Wils will always be, to those who know his lovable and drifty nature, the M.V.P., most valuable poolie. 331 15TH COMPANY, SECOND CLASS Row 1: Seay, J. E. L.: Ermentrout, G. G., Williamson, E.

H.Gaul, USN HAROLD ROBERT ARMET Harold hails from Port Jefferson Station in the Empire State, coming to USNA after spending a carefree year at the State University of New York at Stonybrook. A good handballer, Harold also gave his talents to the company basketball team and knocked heads for battalion rugby. With some burning of the midnight oil and the wearing out of many pencils, Harold has made the Superintendent ' s List and the Dean ' s List. Even though he worked hard, Harold was never unfaithful to his social life. Harold is the kind of officer that the Navy is always looking for, a leader and a worker who will not quit. DENNIS RAYMOND BUSSEY Dennis, a Navy junior, forsook that small college atmosphere at North Greenville Junior College for the vast domains of good ole USNA. To the astonishment of his classmates he was never afraid to admit that he sincerely enjoyed his tour of duty at the Acad- emy. The batt track and cross country teams are going to be lost without him because he contributed heavily toward their severa championships. The Baptist Student Union won ' t be the same either without his persevering and conscientious leadership. For some reason the BSU seemed considerably more lively while Dennis was president. Unfortunately, Dennis wasn ' t successful in everything. He must have lost at least half a dozen girl friends to the wedding bells, but let ' s face it, you can ' t win them all. I I I GERALD EVERARD CAMPBELL Jerry, a Navy junior, left the good life in the halls of Ripon College to serve his time as an officer and a gentleman. Although he never wore stars, no one can deny that he always worked as hard as those who did. At almost any given time he could be seen at his desk wearing his red ski cap and pondering over his next day ' s assignments. Jerry held a strong link with the outside through the St. Paul ' s Lutheran Church where he was an active Sunday School teacher. Those of us who knew him will always cherish the relationship. ERIC JOHN CHALLAIN Eric quickly adapted to USNA life and found time to indulge in his many varied interests. Biology, science fiction and geogra- phy books cluttered his shelves. He found time to help out the Stage Gang in several productions and was a steady trumpeter for the NA-10 and Concert Band. Despite these outside endeavors, Eric maintained a respectable average, often attaining Superinten- dent ' s List status. An active intramural fan, Eric loved the fast moving sports of rugby, soccer and fieldball and found time for Scuba, lifesaving and personal conditioning. Reliable, conscien- tious and curious, Eric will be a valuable addition to the Naval Service. MAURICE HAMILTON DOCTON " Doc " came to us from two vigorous years at Valley Forge Military Academy, his past experience led him to a very successful plebe year. Not to be outdone he has maintained his status through the subsequent years. An avid gymnast, he has held his own on the plebe and varsity squads. The agility obtained here and his wild sense of humor has earned him the title of " Chimp. " Many a night has found him indulging in the antics of the lower primate. Contrary to popular belief, his first but not last love, was a 327 " Vette " of ancient vintage to whom a generous portion of his love and affection is given. The fair state of Ohio has given one of her finest to the service. DAVID F.DUDEK If slag dump 51 could have a favorite son, it would be Dudes. A leaf-brother who was hot dog chief cook . . . but a very poor bottle washer. A homebody junior year hobnobbing with the BOOW, Dave got his letter early. A Math minor was his bag - unfortunately he left it on the Pittsburgh train. Swimming was his major: applied survival. Dudes is a straight-faced (not laced) hu- morist whos e lacerations laughed us into submission and whose social expertise was akin to the books he read. His amiability and poise in any environment will benefit the Naval Service. 334 I » ' 1 1 GEORGE WILLIAM FOOTE George arrived at the Academy from the sunny beaches of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. On weekends George was either with his latest girl or over at St. John ' s playing chess — and winning. During his four years at the Academy he made many friends among his classmates and the stewards. An avid reader of everything except his textbooks, George still had a 3.0 for the four years, and a room full of books ranging from philosophy to science fiction, the Korean language and Army field manuals from his correspondence courses. He was active in the FAC and as a staff member of the Trident in several positions. Whatever branch George decides on will be fortunate to have him in its ranks. THOMAS RYAIM GIBBS Tom, a Navy junior, came to us from Arlington, Virginia. Living so close to the Academy, his home soon became a haven for classmates during short leaves and his car rivaled the area airport taxis. After a rough Plebe year, Gibbsy set out to vanquish his minor in Aero and never ceased to amaze his roommates at how successful he was at taking things lying down. After classes Tom spent his time either playing company fieldball or sailing in the Freedom. Easy to get along with and never too busy to help out a friend, Tom will make a fine officer in which ever branch of the Navy he chooses. DAVID ERNEST GROVE Calling Williamsburg, Pennsylvania his home, Dave came to the Naval Academy after fifteen months in the Naval Reserve. In the afternoons Dave could always be found on the athletic fields where he was a mainstay of the company volleyball and heavy- weight football teams. Never one to have any difficulty with academics, he was often on the Superintendent ' s List. French was his specialty as shown by his active participation in the French Club. Always taking life at the Academy rather seriously, Dave never had any trouble except for once. With his high motivation, Dave is marked for success after graduation. RONALD EDWARD HILLS " T-squared " made the trek from Marengo, Illinois immediately upon graduation from high school. Between taping sessions Ron tackled Aero and fluctuated between stars and probation while also playing on the Drum and Bugle Corps. Though small of stature, Ron was a true sports enthusiast and proved a real asset to the company Softball and basketball teams and certainly kept status as a White Sox fanatic; neither was his size commensurate with his taste for cheese or dark brew. Ron seemed to hold the whole company accountable with his well-timed if not strategic wit and sarcasm. His intense determination and easy-going manner should leave Ron no problems in which ever branch of the Naval Service he chooses. MICHAEL L. MacKAY IMESON Imey, here between European sojourns, tried desperately to hide his latent Hell ' s Angel ' s tendencies and will always be remem- bered for discovering the leaves. He was bass with the Spiffys on weekends and usually base without a Spiffy on weekdays. After an extremely restricted sophomore year, Mike campaigned vigorously for two cars in every garage out in town (Ducati is not a domestic wine). A great skier and lodgeman with a social history banned in Boston, he managed to cultivate an interesting facial growth on even the shortest vacation. If he can k eep his address intact, the Naval Service will enjoy Mike ' s tenure. MICHAEL PETER JARINA Pete came to USNA from the gay parties and coed life of Pensacola Junior College. A Navy man by birth and inclination, he was an airdale from the day he entered the world. He not only carried on a four year bout with the academic department and the fair sex but also with athletics, becoming a stalwart on the JV soccer team and a kingpin in the Scuba Club. His knowledge of Pensacola and his antics during ACTRAMID made Second Class Summer bearable, but he will best be remembered for his perfor- mances as " Dirty Pete. " Jarhead ' s outgoing personality and great determination will carry him far in the Naval Service and the outside world. GREGORY BOYD JONES Equally at ease leaping frantically through the leaves with any one of many overwhelmed young wenches or " booking it " occa- sionally to maintain an unbelievable academic average, Zeus re- mained a bit of a wonder to us all. Waves, leaves and California Dreamin ' , combined with physical prowess, a fine voice and a balding skull adequately depicted on a 3 ' x 5 ' poster above his bed. provided us with a truly interesting individual. He didn ' t spend all of his time in California. Hoping to pursue naval ocean- ography, he should find the service a challenging endeavor. WILLIAM ROGERS JONES Rusty came to the Naval Academy from Kennett, Missouri. A devout believer in sarcastic wit. Rusty always had an appropriate word for every situation. Rarely cracking a smile, especially before 9 o ' clock. Rusty associated with Snoopy, and his drawings could be found in the Log. Herein is one of Rusty ' s greatest assets, his ability to know people and to find their good qualities. This understanding of people, a sense of humor that cannot be lowered, even by a four year bout with the academic department, and a desire to always be doing or making something new assures that Rusty will make a success after graduation. Rusty is the type who can do almost anything once he sets his mind to it. I OSCAR NEWBY McNEIL, JR. Hailing from Louisiana, " Noobs " brought with him a Southern hospitality and refined manner that helped brighten the gloom at Navy. Coming here after a year at Georgia Tech where he stood first in his NROTC class, he became an active member of the Foreign Relations Club. A frustrated Brigade boxer, he turned his talents to managing and earned a Navy " N " for his efforts. Usually found deep in a book or term paper, he occasionally made Super- intendent ' s List. His conscientious attitude, mature outlook and sense of responsibility will make him a valuable addition to the Naval Service. EDWIN ALAN PLATT The " Poo-Bear " , who disguised as the bushy-locked Kahoona in the summer, was a good solid friend to many. The ghost of Alan ' s straight " A " high school past cried out in the night: four letter words like " Aero. " The " waistless wonder " , and Hoggers I and 1 1 were the G-Burg matchmakers and though reluctant to take to the hill, the leaves wouldn ' t have been the same without him. Success following commission hopefully will be easier than a finger snap. A fellow admired and respected by all. 336 I JOHN ROBERT PLETT John made the coast-to-coast journey directly from high school in Visalia, California. After a near TKO in Round One, " Flash " bounced back to outpoint the academic department in the final rounds. A rabid believer in the invincibility of California teams, John spent his afternoons playing a variety of sports. A member of the Plebe tennis team John had to be content with the battalion tennis team later. An intense competitor John was also a standout on the company basketball team and an early riser with the Scuba Club. Consistent with his love for sports, he spent many a varsity sporting event in the press box helping out the Public Relations Club. Whichever service John chooses he will surely be successful. EDWIN STEVENS POTTS A Navy junior from Pensacola, Florida Steve came to USNA from the Naval Reserve. He immediately proceeded to spend far more time with athletics than with his academic endeavors. A hammer and 35 pound weight thrower for the track team, his most prized win was the Captaincy of the 1968-69 track team. Steve arrived in the 15th Company during his junior year and was liked and respected by all, especially for his fearless card-playing. His unquenchable thirst and voluptuous appetite marked him as one of the truly " big " men of his class. Steves friendliness and levelheadedness will always remain with him and bean invaluable aid throughout his career. GENE HILL PRICE " Jokin ' Eugene, " 15th Company ' s answer to Vince Lombardi, was known especially for his Eastern Shore vernacular. His noc- turnal wanderings into parts unknown kept his friends supplied with everything from mustard to athletic tape. Treating friends like silly putty won him fame on the battalion football team for four years. One of Hill ' s biggest accomplishments was his organi- zation of the annual Turkey Bowl football games, which gave us all an opportunity to vent pent up passions on the plebes. Des- perate hours buried in his textbooks drove Hill to a blurry refuge romping in the leaves on weekends. An ironic sense of humor and easy-going attitude should enable Hill to survive the rigors of his military career ROGER KEITH ROOSA Rog came to the Academy upon graduation from high school in Drayton Plains, Michigan. Unlike most midshipmen he never found too much difficulty with the academics, making the Super- intendent ' s and Dean ' s Lists on numerous occasions He was also a member of Sigma Pi Sigma, as well as a Trident Scholar. Rog was always very professionally oriented, being the source of a large percentage of the questions and answers employed in the profes- sional training program. He joined the YP Squadron in order to have a chance to display his nautical knowledge He did everything in his power to give the Plebes in his squad the highest degree of training. An officer of Rog ' s caliber will be a welcome asset to the fleet. JAMES LLOYD TODD Jim made his way from Kettering, Ohio to the Academy with a generous amount of leadership from high school under his belt. Always at the top of the company, " Toad " held many striper positions during his four year tenure. " Toad " was on both Plebe football and wrestling teams but injuries kept him from going on to varsity. He was still an avid sportsman and could always be counted on in company sports. Continually exhibiting his natural leadership, Jim was elected company honor representative first class year. " Toad " always had a good word and a smile for everyone and gave the impression of the type of guy who is going to the top. NESTOR DORIAN WHITE After two years at the University of Illinois, Nestor decided upon a Naval career. Nes was a member of the Color Company as a Plebe and participated in Plebe cross country and indoor track. Four battalion cross country and track teams had undefeated seasons with his support. Having a warm personality, Nestor always was ready with a friendly smile and greeting. Teaching Sunday School in Annapolis gave him a meaningful outlet for his philosophical nature. The fleet will be an easy step because of Nestor ' s determination to become a good officer. 337 16TH COMPANY, SECOND CLASS Row 1: Breen, D. F.; Fatten, R J.; Sheller, L. E. Gustafson, S.

Fawcett; SUB CDR P M Settle; CPO: BE. Woodruff. Steeled in the tradition of superlative 2 stripers (Daddy Dods and Casper), this year found " 16 " well conditioned for " the Tennis Bail " . We responded in our typical indifferent fashion, thus establishing ourselves as one of the " coolest " companies in the Brigade. Our civilian outlook on life has proved to be an invaluable asset this year. With a penchant for fast cars, high insurance rates, and " constructive criticism, " we have always been able to prove to ourselves that it ' s the rest of the world that is out of phase. But in all honesty, our future is optimistic. We have been able to look at USNA and separate the good from the bad, and at the same time display a realistic appreciation of the military and how it is run. The majority of ' 69 in this company are not " lifers " , but regardless of what we are doing twenty years from now, when we reflect we will find our experience in " 16 " was a learning process about human relations from which we all derived much benefit. 16th COMPANY OFFICER LT L. E. Linn, USN a PETER DOUGLAS BLACKLEDGE Annapolis liad become almost a tradition in the Blackledge family, or as Pete put it, " a bad habit. " So Pete bypassed his plans to attend Duke University in order to follow in the footsteps of his father and brother Abandoning his basketball in pursuit of a sport which would best utilize his natural instincts, Pete found crew - the only sport which masters the fine art of sitting down and going backwards. His Youngster year Peter received his first " N " as a member of the boat which won the national champion- ships. Achievement in academis as well as more attractive pursuits foreshadow success for Pete in all future endeavors JOHN SHERIDAN BROWN John is a native New Yorker, coming from the sprawling metropolis of Olean. He was so eager to make his mark on the Navy that he left for USNA two hours after graduating from Olean High School. He quickly established himself in Academy aca- demics, although he always amazed his classmates by pulling C-t- grades and returning brand new books every May. John is an all-around sports enthusiast; he started off as a Plebe gymnast, switched to Plebe pistol, but then realized that company sports were for him. He also became an avid Scuba man while at USNA John is well liked and a capable leader, he will undoubtedly continue these traits in becoming a fine officer and pilot in the Navy. JOHN MILLER BUNKER In the summer of 65 " Bunks " departed from the sunny sands of Palm Springs to the somewhat different climate of the Naval Academy. After an interesting Plebe year, John turned his atten- tion to studying and playing tennis. This hard work proved worth- while as John made the Supt ' s List and finally earned his stars and became an outstanding member of the varsity tennis team. John always maintained that he was of above average marching ability which no one could disprove because the only time he saw the parade field in his stay at the Academy was on an occasional postcard to his realtives. Because of John ' s common sense and responsible nature he will be successful at anything he attempts. DAVID KENT DAGGETT Dave came to USNA from Marshalltown, Iowa right after graduating from high school. He had little trouble adjusting to the academics at the Academy and almost continually wore stars. Advancing his knowledge of the world of science fiction was his major project during study hours, but he did manage to spend some time on other things like sleep, and occasionally even aca- demics. Four years in the Drum and Bugle Corps and a large record collection combined to satisfy his musical interests. When not in the pad or the bowling alley, Dave could be seen with the company Softball team. No matter what branch of service Dave selects, he should make a fine officer. ROBERT CRAIG EIKENBERRY " ike " came to the Academy from Seaford, Delaware after graduating from Seaford High School where he excelled in wres- tling and track. A firm believer in physical fitness, he liked weight-lifting and gymnastics in which he participated for four years. A hard worker, " Ike " spent many hours on the books, but could be talked into the pad occasionally. A lover of fast cars, he could be found driving home to the " land of pleasant living " on weekends. " Ike ' s " fondness for stereo equipment was well known and he will be remembered as the " appl iance king " of his com- pany His quiet maturity and perseverance will doubtlessly aid him in whatever task he pursues in the future. ROBERT JOSEPH FAWCETT Bob came to the Academy immediately after graduating from McBride High School in St. Louis, Missouri. Always a spirited competitor, he discovered the challenge of boxing during Plebe summer and went on to box for the battalion and Brigade teams. Always trying to improve himself. Bob went to jump school and took up scuba diving his Youngster year and exercised his leader- ship the next year with his constant efforts on the Plebe detail. Combining his love for the military with his tremendous desire to excel. Bob has a promising career awaiting him. 340 MYLES ANTHONY FISHER After moving around the country considerably in his younger days, the " fish " stopped in Iowa long enough to graduate from Charles City High School. Coming straight to Annapolis from Iowa, the easygoing guy found the military ways of the Academy a shocking change. Never a firm believer in the slide rule or computer, Myles spent many a tense moment at the hands of the Engineering Department. Preferring sports and girls to books, Myles played Plebe soccer and also turned in outstanding perfor- mances on the company football and Softball teams as well as playing 150 lb. football. His friendly and outgoing personality has made him many lasting friends here and should help him In the future as a naval officer. ROBERT LEE HUTCHINGS Hutch comes to us from a life of sun and surf in Florida After spending a year at the University of New Mexico, he adjusted reluctantly to life in Bancroft Hall. Hutch ' s academic endeavors were reserved for his major field, foreign affairs. His natural athletic ability made him a standout in intramural football, basket- ball and tennis. Characteristic of Hutch was his individuality and his fondness for fast cars and faster women. His extracurricular activities included the Ring and Crest Committee. A Navy junior, his self-confidence and ability will insure him success in whatever he chooses to pursue. JAMES MORTON KELLY Jim, a Navy junior, came to the shores of the Severn from Arlington, Vriginia, via the Bullis Prep School. As a plebe, he took up bodybuilding (breaking) - not exactly on his own initiative — and completed plebe year in involuntary good shape. Cruises found Jim in the pad so often that he had to be " triced up " each morning by the compartment cleaners. At Navy, Jim spent many study hours indulging in his " business " which came complete with barber pole and accessories. The naval service will definitely be gaining a valuable asset in so industrious an officer. BRIAN ELLIOTT KINSLEY Brian came from a small town in nothern Vermont conve- niently located in some of the best skiing country in the states. Leaving the Northernland and skiing was his biggest obstacle of Plebe year and every year thereafter. Brian often preferred a good ski magazine or an " hour away from Navy " in the rack rather than the books, but managed to get along and snag an Italian Foreign Exchange Cruise first class year. While at the Academy he played in the Drum and Bugle Corps, was a member of the Antiphonai Choir and many intramural sports. He will always be looking forward to the day when he can return to " God ' s green country. " 1 ROBERT CHARLES KLOSTERMAN With a year at Ohio State in NROTC under his belt. Bob found academics at USNA an easy push. Needing something else to take up all his spare time, he settled on lightweight crew and got his letter. Around the company he was known for his library, his helpful extra instruction and a wit with an appropriate comment for any situation. With a penchant for numbers, " Klos " , easily got his major in Math, and drawing on this vast knowledge, he made the famous statement, " Life is a complex variable. " Regardless of where he goes, he will take with him a sincere personality and the proven ability of excellence. PHILIP CHARLES LAME Born in the likely town of Moscow, Idaho, Phil came directly to the Academy after graduation from high school in O ' Fallon, Illinois. Coming from a typical Air Force family, he has already seen more of the world than most could hope for. Phil quickly established his athletic and academic prowess during Plebe year. A member of the Supt ' s List he still found time to excel in track and cross country. Navy rewarded Phil with a pair of shiny new braces 2 c Year. Between time spent in the dentist ' s chair playing bridge and an interesting social life, Phil ' s academics didn ' t drop too much ' ' Phil ' s strong competitive spirit and desire for perfection in what he does will be important assets in his career in the Navy. 341 L ROBERT DENNIS MULLINS Bob came to us from Southgate. California after one year at the Northrop Institute of Technology. Being very versatile, he is a member of the Superintendent ' s List while holding the dual position of Company Rep and Honor Rep. Even with his busy schedule. Bob has always managed to get more than his share of pad time. An avid sports enthusiast. Bob plays Softball, football, tennis and scuba dives. Bob is a lifetime baseball fan and is always up-to-date on the latest sports news. His usual quietness is offset by a sharp sense of humor which makes him interesting and pleasurable company. With his strong will and hard work. Bob will be a great asset to the service and to the men with whom he serves. THOMAS BURNELL REEVE, JR. As a favorite son of Mattituck, Long Island, Tom came to the Academy with a natural love of the sea and quickly established a friendship with the Marine Engineering Department. He pursued his education with characteristic vigor, turning out grades that will be a lasting remmder of his academic ability. For a sport Tom preferred soccer and many an afternoon was spent playmg for the Academy and then with the company team. His determination and easy to get along with manner should make him an asset that the Naval Service can well be proud of. ROBERT GLEN REID, JR. Bringing to the Naval Academy the name " The Southampton Bullet, " a title he canned while in high school and NAPS, Glen carried the legend successfully through 3 years on the varsity soccer team. As the team scoring leader his junior year he became respected throughout the league. Refusing to let academics inter- fere with athletics. Glen relinquished his former namesake for the now popular " 3.0 Reid " address. Glen has repeatedly kept himself one step ahead of the Executive Department on all occasions, except that one memborable evening of April 15th. If Glen ' s success on the athletic field is any indication of his ability for a successful career, he will most certainly be an asset to the Naval Service. J LOUIS RUBANO, JR. " Luigi " , as Lou has become known to many of his friends, hails from Orange, Connecticut. From the day Lou entered the Naval Academy, he has never professed to be a military man and is still pursuing that profession. One of Lou ' s remarkable characteristics is his ability to consistently maintain his hair at a somewhat respectable collegiate length. Lou has never been bothered by academics and has never really bothered them, but still managed to hold the upper hand. Lou has always had a keen interest in sports and has been a welcome asset to the company ' s lightweight football, volleyball, and Softball teams. Aside from the minor " assets " Lou will be a welcome and hard working addition to the fleet. PETER MICHAEL SETTLE Pete came to the Academy from Santa Rosa, California, where he attended Santa Rosa Junior College. He brought with him a love for sports and he was a big asset to the company basketball, Softball and volleyball teams. Never one to let aca- demics get the better of him, " Setts " always managed to schedule enough Bull courses to stay one short jump ahead of the Science and Engineering Departments His friendly personality has won him many close and long lasting friendships during his four years here. He works hard and plays hard and his attitude of making the most out of each day will make him a welcome addition to the profession he has chosen. 342 M 4 ROBERT FRANCIS STOSS As an Army brat. Bob had his share of traveling before coming to the Nava! Academy. Stateside hving was interspersed with overseas stays. Bob was able to attend his last four years of pubti: school in one place though, and came to the Academy right aft;r graduating from J.E.B. Stuart High School in Falls Churci., Virginia, At USNA, Bob ' s decision to major in Italian and minor r foreign affairs testified to his preference for the humanities though Science courses usually managed to claim most of hi study time. Bob ' s interest in the military should be rewarded by a long service career. DONALD HIROSHI TANAKA Don, a native Califorman, came to the Naval Academy after a year at Monterey Peninsula College and proceeded to establish himself as one of the outstanding members of our class. He always worked hard academically and his permanent membership on the Dean ' s and Superintendent ' s Lists while completing the difficult Aero Major, as well as his selection as a Trident Scholar in Engineering, were honors well deserved. His athletic endeavors were divided evenly among the soccer field, tennis courts and weight room - not to mention weekend trips with the Scuba Club. What ever field Don may choose to enter after graduation his competi- tive attitude, sharp wit and easy going personality are certain to insure his ultimate success. I ROGER PAUL VEHORN Roger, or more familiarly, " the Horn " , hails from that part of Dixie known as Charlotte, North Carolina. Although plagued by several misconceptions about Academy life, he put aside his pre- ferences and proceeded to take a large part in Plebe indoctrination during his " Freshman " year. Roger wasn ' t exactly a Trident Schol- ar, but somehow he managed to find time for the Glee Club and Chapel Choir as well as for advanced research in the fields of sports cars, skin diving and hunting. In Roger the Navy stands to gain an outstanding officer THOMAS JOHN WANDISHIN Tom came straight from high school and adjusted quickly though unwillingly, to the somewhat different environment of Bancroft Hall. Well known for his athletic prowess, Wandy starred on Brigade championship basketball, tennis and volleyball teams. Equally well known for his exploits on weekends and leave pe- riods, Wandy helped provide dates for classmates not endowed with his natural gifts. Not a natural prof pleaser, Wandy managed to find just the right balance between study and his more pressing interests. His easy going and friendly nature have made him many lasting friendships. An all around individual, Tom ' s qualities will insure that success will be his wherever he chooses to find it. EDWARD BECKMANN WILD Ed, an Air Force brat, likes to call Elmwood, Wisconsin home, but you would have a hard time attempting to find his actual hometown. He led the usual military nomadic life and attended the University of Maryland in Munich, Germany and the Univer- sity of Portland before finally settling in Annapolis, Ed quickly adjusted to Navy academics, almost always keeping one step ahead of the Academic Board. After spending plebe year on the crew team, he chose to move indoors and became a standout on the squash courts. Ed spent his summers attending survival school and jump school. His willingness to work and competitive spirit will be a definite asset to himself and the service. BERRYMAN EDWARDS WOODRUFF, III From the heart of Dixie, Cedartown, Georgia, Ted came north in search of an education and a commission. His idea of carefree happy college years was soon destroyed by plebe summer and then the more permanent realities of academic year. Although not one to be found in the hall on weekends, his habit of hard work during the week saw him in good stead. A good swimmer, he managed many free periods while the Physical Ed Department made swim- mers of the rest of us. Ted ' s ready wit and his habit of hard work will be of invaluable assistance in the fleet. 343 17TH COMPANY, SECOND CLASS Row 1: Dodson. D. C; Hash, S. P.; Martino, M. F. Brehm, D. E.; Moore, W.

We have lost a few men during our stay, but by acquiring those stubborn five year men our number has remained constant. Not to differ from other companies we had our share of barbers and corn poppers. At our frequent parties we generally get along well as a group. In the hall, however, we have our share of spacemen and persecution complexes. After spending two years in the Twenty-Third with Navy men, we were a little leary about coming under the eyes of a Marine. Then again most of us nev er did see the Major ' s eyes. Although our sports teams were never excellent we always had a good time. That was our major occupation at Navy, trying to have a good time. SPRING SET: CO. CDR: E. T. Johanson; SUB CDR R. L. Bulger, CPO: J. L. Sams. 17th COMPANY OFFICER MAJ D. B. Conaty, USMC SCOTT DOUGLAS ANDERSON Scott, a Navy junior who could, and would, call just about anyplace home, came to the Academy on a Presidential ap- pointment after graduating from Fort Union Military Academy. An affinity for words and the humanities served him well in the Bull Department and balanced out his sometimes less than suc- cessful endeavors in other academic areas. A foreign affairs minor he was active in the Foreign Affairs Club. As a Plebe and J.V. soccer player Scott met with some success while adding his efforts to i ntramural squash and sailing teams in the other seasons. Scott ' s enthusiasm and determination should stand him in good stead whatever he tries. ROBERT WATSON BALLEW Cat, a native Wasiilngtonian, graduated from Anacostia High in 1962 and commenced his Naval career by enlisting in the Navy. After three years of service and qualification in submarines. Cat received his orders to NAPS where he won his appointment to the Academy. During Plebe and Youngster years. Cat stuck to the ' Core ' courses in order to establish an academic foundation from which he went on to overload in second and first class years. As a lifelong " gun buff " . Cat was glad to fire for Navy in Plebe pistol and varsity rifle and to devote much of his free time to the Gun Club. The rest of his free time was spent in the shops of Isherwood Hall. Cat ' s intentions are to continue his career, and to further his education in a postgraduate program. ROBERT OWEN BAYLIS " Bulbous " came to the hallowed halls on the Severn via New Mexico Military Institute and NAPS. As a result of numerous injuries. Bob made the transition from varsity football to social chairman with relative ease. There is little on any subject he doesn ' t know, except of course, the Academy ' s core curriculum. However, through exacting patience and diligence, he succeeded in attaining the allusive 2.0. When not studying or planning his next entertainment extravaganza, he was sure to be found in the ' bag. ' The " omniscient one " will be quick to make an immediate success; his devotion to duty and desire to excel will carry Bob far wherever his choice takes him. STEPHEN AUGUSTUS BEAULIEU, III Steve, " Auggie " Beaulieu came to Navy from the University of Maine. With his year of college life behind him, he quickly gained the respect and admiration of the rest of us with his maturity and easy going manner. Though Auggie was a star swimmer in high school, his other athletic talents were well known and he was eagerly sought after by the company football and baseball teams. But Steve ' s real skills were not confined to athletics alone and if Steve should ever decide to leave the Navy, the Barber ' s Union will find severe competition. Aug ' s sense of humor and his sincere interest in other people will be a big asset to him in his Naval Career. NELSON ADRIAN BLISH Nelson, or Nels, hails from Orlando, Florida. Coming to the Academy after a year at Florida Presbyterian College, Nels soon put his brain and small size to use. Academics were no problem, and he found time to put a lot of work into varsity gymnastics and crew. He also found time to amuse and entertain his roommates and friends with his guitar playing and folk singing. But even with these activities, he still found time on weekends for one of his favorite sports - girls. Nelson is a conscientious, hard worker who has a fine naval career ahead of him. RANDOLPH MICHAEL BROOKS Randy, a native of South Carolina, came to the Academy immediately following graduation from North Charleston High School. His irrespressible desire to succeed was displayed in his being a consistent member of the Superintendent ' s List and a star man several times. Every afternoon he could be seen coxswaining a sleek shell down the Severn on the crew team. But probably his favorite experience was the Plebe Detail. While involved in various Christian and musical activities, it was always the goal of becoming a good officer that occupied the highest place. 346 " l RICHARD LEE BULGER " R. L. " travelled to Navy only to trade Air Force blue for Navy blue. He offered to many a father image and in return they taught him " the ways of the world. " As a willing subject, taking the country out of the boy proved an easy task with Dick. Though his academic career began ignominously. R. L. overcame his diffi- culties and excelled. Always swayed by a pretty face, Dick ' s heart circulated like a library book. He " courted " many a lass looking for " it " : I.e., the real thing. As old age hit R. L., he slowed his pace. But in sports he continued to play like a young buck. Dick ' s easy attitude should combine well with a Navy career. ROBERT WARD BYLES Bob, a native of Groton, Connecticut, came to the Naval Academy from The Manlius School in New York. A Cadet Colonel there, he soon became known to his many friends here as the " Colonel " . Having no fear of hard work Bob displayed diligence both in his academics and on the athletic fields. Despite the Colonel ' s definite affinity for the pad, he took extra courses because " I won ' t know what to do with my extra time. " At the same time he quarterbacked the two victorious Turkey Bowl football teams and was a leading hitter for the company ' s baseball team. His qualities of mdustriousness, sincerity and devotion to duty will surely bring Bob as great success in the Naval Service as they have at USNA. ANTHONY VINCENT COLANTONI, JR. Tony came to us from the sunny plains of " Jersey " His prov«ess in all fields was evident to those working with him. He could hear the sound of those 52 ' s hitting each other three wings away. If he didn ' t know the game he ' d learn it, but the old adage: " Lucky in cards, unlucky in love " wasn ' t applicable in Tony ' s case. He couldn ' t draw a winning hand in either game. In a concerted effort to avoid academics, Tony concentrated on de- veloping his pocket billiards game, and discovered his forte in the battalion recreation rooms. Though Tony ' s " Midshipman pro- fessionalism " IS dubious, he will be a fine officer. ROBERT WALMSLEY COWIN Cow Cow, as he is affectionately called, came to Mother B from the thriving metropolis of Mt. Lakes, New Jersey. Bobby lost little time in displaying his athletic talents. He played number 1 on the tennis, squash, and first string for the Mitey Mites. He was a major contributing factor to Navy ' s National Championship Squash team. Despite his athletic commitments, he always found the time to make the most of his scarce free weekends, including the Saturday night sprint from Gate O. As for academics, he will always be remembered for his tireless quest for the gouge. DALE WILLIAM CRISP Dale came to the Academy straight from high school in his hometown of Spokane, Washington. Applying himself to aca- demics, he became known to some of his classmates as 4.0 Cnt. Besides maintaining a high academic standing. Dale has had time to fence foil on the varsity fencing team and qualify for t e Olympic Trials in 1968. Besides girls. Dale ' s major recreatio " : nterest is folk music. Dale, always being open to requests for . (rom his classmates, was a source of " gouge " for many peope Coming from the Rocky Mountains, Dale is a hard and willing worker who will make an excellent contribution to the Naval Service. JEFFREY HARRIS FLANNERY Known to his friends as " Flans, " and to the Plebes as " Uncle Flans, " Jeff came to Annapolis after one year at L. A. Sta te. Plebe year, his easy-going personality quickly made him many friends, unfortunately few of those were his seniors. His reputation as an expert mechanic soon grew. Many " straight-arrows " who had a tendency to bend upon occasion came to Jeff for advice about their cars. Throughout the year " Flans " could be found in the natatorium teaching scuba. Jeff is a hard worker but can always find time to help someone else. With this attribute, " Flans " will make a welcome addition to the officer corps. 347 FRED ARTHUR GEISLER Fred entered the Academy without any previous education derived from his stay at Gushing Academy. His ears have earned him renown throughout the Brigade and in his hometown of Whitehall, Michigan. During his visit at the Academy, Fred held studying in such high esteem that he often felt himself too unworthy to indulge in any. As a junior member of " Hell ' s Angels, " his one desire in life is to lead his own chapter down Route 50. Fred exhibited his athletic prowess as a member of the Plebe and J.V. soccer teams. He was also a valuable asset to the intramural teams. Fred ' s easy-going nature will make him a much needed tranquilizer for some ulcerated CO. JAMES T. GIERUCKI Jim hails from the Windy City and St. Lawrence High School. Whenever the Warsaw Warrior could be found out of the pad, he was fending off Pollock jokes or playing football. Jim was convinced that studying caused cancer. Despite his distaste for academics, Jim compiled a respectable academic standing through skillful integration of mate intelligence and his demi-god — The Gouge. But Gierucks will best be remembered for his feats on the gridiron. He worked his way up to earn his place on the Big Blue Team and an N-star. It is this same determination and ability to quickly grasp the essence of a strange situation that will make Jim a truly fine Naval officer. LAWRENCE BAIIM HAGEL At the last minute, Larry turned down Hudson High and decided to take his search for knowledge to Severn ' s shore. And search he did; Larry took his studying seriously. In fact, studying came a close second only to telling non-Hoosiers about the marvels of Indiana, particularly the thriving town of Evansville, which Larry calls home. Hages also took sports seriously, figuring that if you were going to play, you may as well play to win. A real competitor, Larry takes naturally to sports and was a standout on the intramural fields. We are sure that Larry, with his strong religious convictions and hard working nature, will be a success in what ever he undertakes. JAMES WARREN HAMBURG It was Upper Dublin ' High ' s misfortune to graduate their favorite son and send him off to U.S.N. A. where he has devoured his $40,000 education. By virtue of his bulky physique, Jim quickly acquired the nickname " Rail. " His well-rounded talents have been displayed in all aspects of Academy life. Many a referee has been smitten by harsh words from the " Rail " after making a bad call. It has become routine in the company to hear of the test that " Rail " bombed by merely getting an " A " ; and it is not uncommon to hear one say, " Ask Rail, he knows. " No matter what phase of the Naval Service he may choose, " Rail " will continue to shame women and shock little children. ( DECK EUGENE HARRELL A native Californian, Deck came to the Academy after having spent a year at Long Beach State College. The son of a career Naval Officer, he was well acquainted with military life, and easily adapted to Bancroft ' s as well. After a year on the Plebe heavy- weight crew, he turned his attention to intramurals, rowing in the Brigade championship boat Youngster year. West Coast-bred lib- eral minded Deck could accept others on their own merits and approach anyone ' s point of view with an open mind. His aware- ness of the surrounding world let him speak intelligently on any subject, a quality necessary for anyone aspiring to be an officer and gentleman. PHILIP CHARLES JAMISON Hailing from Hot Springs, Arkansas, Phil made his way out of the South after a year at Texas A M and into a suit of Navy Blue. Track and 150 lb, football were his games and many hours were spent showing bewildering eyes his blinding speed; an asset which brought him the nickname Jet. Competence in academics was also an important facet of his stay at Navy. He must have had a reserved seat at the library. No academic obstacle seemed too tall for Phil-even if it took half the night to scale. Besides being a fine student and athlete. Jet devoted much of his time to the D B, The Foreign Relations Club and the Russian Club. A fine sense of numor rounded off Phil ' s many other traits. 348 ERICK THEODORE JOHANSON E. T., known popularly as the " Root of all Evil " came to USNA after graduating fronn Portland, Oregon ' s U.S. Grant High School. Never really troubled by the pressures of the academic routine, E. T. soon found the underside of his eyelids more interesting, and studied them diligently. Rick ' s ready smile and quick wit won him many friends throughout the Brigade, and his athletic prowess made htm a much sought after man for company teams. Wherever he goes in the Naval Service, Rick ' s fine character and pleasing personality will definitely benefit the people with whom he serves. JOHN JAMES KEARLEY John, a Southern gentleman at heart, hails from Monroeville, Alabama where he became proficient with a bass horn and with his bass violin. Plebe year came as no surprise to John and when the gymnastics coach noticed him John was on his way to becoming an accomplished gymnast. Affectionately known as " The Lizard " , John was not one to be seen wandering around during study hour. He dropped gym to go out for varsity academics and played cat-and-mouse with the academic department from then on. However, " J. J. " remained inspired towards a Navy career and as he gestures goodbye to Mother B the halls will echo with his battle cry, " Save your Dixie cups, the South will rise again! " EARL EDWARD KINDSTROM " Easy Earl " or " The Big E " , came to the 17th Company as a five year man, and quickly stood out both leading potential and as an outstanding personality. " Easy " looks to the California coast and home for his sun, fun and a tall, cold, well loved Coors. He takes pride in being known as a fun devil, and is quick to rally a slow evening with wit and spirit. Earl ' s academics were his soft spot, playing most of his Management Minor courses by ear on his pillow. His athletics shined in everything he did, from bowling, to yielding a pool cue, to catching a T. D. pass in the Turkey Bowl. Just to know Earl is to know he will be a fine upstanding graduate. ROBERT DOUGLAS MANSFIELD Bob came to Navy from Valatie, New York. Although never a " slash " . Manhunt managed to keep his head above the waterline and he never allowed the books to stand in the way of a good time. After countless hours on the soccer field, Bob ' s tremendous hustle and ability won him his goal of an N star. However, Manhunt ' s claim to fame came at the expense of his friends as he was the master of the sick joke, but unusual sense of humor always added the right touch to any gathering. His easygoing manner also won him numerous friends throughout the Brigade. Bob ' s perseverance and strong sense of duty will make him a welcome addition anywhere he goes. JAMES CARLTON MOSES Jim was bred for the Navy in Allentown, Pennsylvania, where he attended Parkland High School. The son of a ' 26 graduate of these hallowed halls, he came here realizing full well what was in store for him. He was best known for his running feud with the Academic Board, somehow always managing to stay one jump ahead of the Dean. Jim was a fanatic when it came to track and cross country, but then maybe it was all that distance work that kept him " one jump ahead. " Despite what he may think, his greatest assets are his unbeatable professionalism and the desire to see a job done right. With these strong points, Jim will be a welcome addition to any command he may join. JAMES WYNN PATTISON Jim first began to love the water in abundance in his home state Nevada. Coming from Las Vegas, he developed a quick thinking, mathematical mind early in life, though it was seldom applied to his studies. Jim ' s knowledge of chemistry was often useful in tutoring plebes; he saved many from the perils of the academic board. The boat house occupied much of Jim ' s time during the crew season; making weight always meant few desserts and lots of work He always managed to get lots of sleep at night, since free periods were a rare thing. Jim ' s combination of intelligence, common sense, and confidence will surely make him an out- standing asset to the Navy. 349 LAIMDON BOSTWICK PHILLIPS Lanny came straight from high school in Illinois to Canoe U. Finding academics to his liking, he almost always posted at least a 3.00 average and frequently made the Superintendent ' s List. Although usually carrying an overload, Lanny was never too busy to help a buddy with studies or a date for the weekend. After being a star athlete in high school, Lanny won a letter in plebe track and was a standout on the battalion track teams. Living from weekend to weekend, Lanny was quick to make the Baltimore or Washington run when Saturday afternoon rolled around. Lanny ' s ability to work and play hard, along with his unique personality will no doubt make him an outstanding naval officer. CARROLL ARTHUR PITMAN Art traded the world of Greenville, South Carolina for the horizons of the Naval Academy in order to broaden himself. While he was here he played intramurals very well, helping the batt tennis team win the Brigades. He also played basketball and football with a great amount of enthusiasm and he was one of the stars that humbled the plebes in the great " Turkey Bowl. " Academics never consumed much of his time so Art had plenty of time to devote to his favorite pastimes which were playing pool, reading and sleeping. Art ' s ability to concentrate on the problem at hand will make him a very valuable addition to whatever part of the service he chooses. U : FAILS CPO:P. JOHN LAWRENCE SAMS After overcoming an intense desire to return to Statesville, North Carolina, Salty settled down to the rigors of Plebe year. His height earned him a position on the company basketball and volleyball teams, while his aloofness enabled him to remain unaffected by his surroundings. As a Management major. Salty had little alternative but to spend most of his hours in the rack. Despite his frequent succumbing to the sandman, he often found himself on the Supt ' s List. Regardless of his service selection. Salty should make a good C, O. ROGER LON SCOFIELD Lon honored our halls for only four short years but we will long remember him. He was always ready to give his aid to all who needed it, from drawing colorful posters to encouraging an " unsat " roomie. Lon had a fervent desire to become a sailor back in his home in St. Johnsville, New York, and the Academy showed him It was Navy for him, tho ' Aero often gave him a late night. Lon spent many hours in the air, too, with his travels between " Mother 8 " and a nursing school in Kentucky. With his ever constant diligence and hard work, good humor and warm friend- ship, Lon will prove one of the best officers in the Navy and in the country. STEPHEN AMBROSE WARD, III Steve came to Navy from the Loyola School in New York City, and soon made a name for himself as one of the hardest workers in the Brigade. Due to his organizational ability and tremendous amount of common sense. Moon often found himself the head of numerous projects which naturally left little time for the books The fall season usually found Moon putting his football team through a rough practice in preparation for the annual Turkey Bowl game. He must be the only football coach to retire undefeated. Wherever he may go in the Navy, Steve will carry his great sense and warm personality with him to enrich the lives of the people around him. IMEAL WILLIAM WEISBERG Neal came to Navy in his levis and mocs from Massapequa Park, New York. Although he was straight out of high school, Neal quickly adapted to the rigorous life of a plebe. His oft-heard laughter and happy feet have brought him the title of Crazy Neal. Although he had problems keeping his head above water in the pool, he had little trouble with the academic department. Neal is an avid sports fan and displayed his skills in a few of them on the intramural field. Neal was always out to have a good time, however, on occasion the Executive Department did not quite agree with him. Neal ' s helpful personality has gained him many friends at Navy. 350 ii 18th Company FALL SET: CDR: B. W. Spahr SUE CPO P R. Meeker. M. Masica; For the most part there is a certain pride among the members of this company. It shelters some of the best barbers, boxers, clowns, and zookeepers in the Brigade. The eighteenth is a loud company. It is famous among some of our highly striped classmates for its good time outlook. It leads the way in a major policy revision of the Plebe system. It is the seat of wargamong in the Brigade. The eighteenth stands behind its own and we are proud of any man ' s accomplish- ments because he is a part of us. As one fourth class put it, " It ' s a tough company, but I ' d rather be in it than any other. " WINTER SET: CO. CDR: H. R. Eustis, SUB-CDR: P. S. Johnston, CPO: P. R. Meeker. SPRING SET: CO.

A. »4fMM PHILIP FREDERICK CONNORS Phil, affectionately known to his many friends as " Filthy Phil, " came to the Academy straight from high school in Medford, Massachusetts. After arriving at the " Quagmire " , as he liked to refer to the Academy, he immediately began the good fight with the academic department. Never one to take anything too seri- ously, Phil derived his greatest pleasures from the weekends, where he soon became a prominent figure on the Annapolis — D. C. scene. Probably his greatest asset was the fact that he found humor in everything he encountered, a quality which aided him during his frequent restriction periods, Phil ' s bouyant personality and quick mind ensures him success in what ever field he chooses. JOHN KENT COVEY Kent, first graced the Academy in June 1965 to become a member of our elite class after graduating from DeSales High School in Lockport, New York. Plebe summer posed no problems for the industrious Yankee, and he also managed to skate through Plebe year as a member of the Glee Club, Drum Bugle Corps, Catholic Choir and Portuguese Club. No man should be able to do so much and still keep a 3.00! After attempting to assume the role of superman during June Week ' 67, he validated Second Class Summer, but managed to bounce back to share his familiar smile and lightheartedness with the boys. Surely Kent can be voted most likely to succeed as a fellow ' 69er. RONALD ALAN DIBBLE An Air Force brat, " Dibbs " came to us from the far off land of Alaska. Well liked by everyone, he made friends easily wherever he went. He was a hard worker in the field of a cademics and was frequently a member of the Superintendent ' s List. Ron ' s tremen- dous athletic ability made him a standout in company sports, and his avid enthusiasm for skiing excused him from Spring parades Youngster Year. Also known as a guitar-strumming minstrel, Ron could always be found playing his 12-string during his free time. His weekends were seldom without the companionship of the opposite sex. With Ron ' s strength of character and competitive desire he will make a tremendous asset to the Naval Service in all his endeavors. PERRY R. DUNN Conway, South Carolina gave up its favorite son in June ' 65 when the P. R. roared into USNA prepared to serve his country and ready to make his mark. Answering to Mag or Skinny, Perry was always ready to help a classmate or express an opinion. The free medical service so intrigued him that P. R. had his lung cut in May of Plebe year, and unsatisfied, returned again the following year to get his money ' s worth. A man of unlimited personality, P. R. ran the company entertainment center (his room! and with the possible exception of a misdeal in the summer of ' 42, met every challenge offered him. USNA lost a colorful individual with his graduation. STEVEN CHARLES EPPERSON The Hoosier State gave up one of its finest citizens when " Eppe " decided to make Navy his way of life. He was graduated from Hauser High School where he stood number one in his class. As a midshipman, Steve continued his mastery over academic endeavors. He could always be found studying the backs of his eyelids on the blue trampoline, and his grades were still above 3.00. When he wasn ' t sleeping, Steve was running. He was a member of the varsity cross-country and track teams his Second Class and First Class years. Not only an athlete and scholar, Eppe is one of the finest gentlemen to ever pass through the doors of Mother Bancroft. Wherever the Navy finds a place for him, Steve will undoubtedly excel, for excelling has become a habit with him. KENNETH WILLIAM ESTES Ken arrived on the shores of the Severn from Seattle, Washing- ton. Knowing perhaps more about the Navy than the rest of the company combined, he became our indispensable adjunct to Jane ' s Fighting Ships. Not satisfied with his knowledge of the present, he was soon delving into the past over in the Bull Department. The energy with which Ken approached everything he did saw him finally on the Supt ' s and Dean ' s Lists. In addition, " The Clees " was busy in other activities like the Gun Club, Trident, Spanish Club and after a year rowing Plebe Crew, suc- ceeding years found him a member of the battalion crew and championship tennis teams. With his energy and ability Ken should make a successful career in any line he chooses. MELVIN R. ETHERIDGE, JR. Mel came to Crabtown from sunny California, but being a Navy Junior, has also called McLean, Boston and China Lake his home since Plebe year. An ardent seaman, Mel soon discovered the YP Squadron and became one of its most dedicated members. Afternoons in the Spring and Fall would find Mel and his crew cruising the bay trying hard not to go aground or ram the seawall. During the Winter months, he applied his talents to the company football teams, helping them achieve some remarkable seasons. In between sleeping and studying, Mel also found time for the French and Scuba clubs. Dedicated to the Navy, Mel is sure to rise to the top and excel in whatever he does. HAROLD ROBERT EUSTIS After spending four carefree years in high school becoming an all-American boy, the scent of the sea became so strong in Culver, Indiana, that Harold couldn ' t resist and gave his bid to Navy. An avid camera-bug. Bob at one time or another owned enough equipment to outfit an MGM production crew. To the distress of a few and the enjoyment of many. Bob specialized in candid shots and amassed a creditable library of compromising situations. An accomplished endurance swimmer and distance runner, Harold annually did battle again and again with the P. T. Department. Bob IS a natural leader and commands the respect of all who know him. With these assets we can see nothing in Bob ' s future but clear skies and smooth sailing. THOMAS FREDERICK HAGAN, III Tom or " Nagah " is the pride of Seaford, New York and came to the Academy right from high school. Being a Long Islander, he is naturally a lacrosse player, and he helped lead both the Plebe and Varsity teams to many a victory. Academics proved to be no sweat for Tom, and many a classmate will attest to his rare ability to unravel the mysteries of skinny or Math. Nagah, a confirmed believer in the merits of sleep, could be found in his pad during any free period. Tom ' s gentlemanly manner and sound standard of values will assure continued success after graduation. I JAMES ROBERT HANNEMANN Jim came from Eagle, Wisconsin, to join the glitter and tinsel of the Brigade. This hard worker soon gave up his free afternoons to the Varsity crew team. His quick wit and friendly manner won him many lifelong friends. Next to crew Jim liked the " Bag " best of all. You could always tell when he had a good weekend by the blown hair a nd the number of bugs in his teeth when he gave his big friendly smile. With his high native intelligence, Jim had no trouble with academics once he entered the field of management. At 6 ' 5 " , Jim literally stands head and shoulders above his class- mates and promises to be one of the most outstanding leaders in the fleet from the class of ' 69. PAUL STANLEY JOHNSTON Straight from Torrington, Wyoming, and high school flashed the innocent " Wyoming Whippet. " The Whip met every challenge the Academy presented, from " perennial carry-on " as a Plebe basketball player to the rigors of Academics Anonymous which he frequented nightly in the Brigade Library. During his few mo- ments of free time (away from the library) Paul endeavored unrelentingly to meet the challenges presented by his admirers from the ranks of the fairer sex. From academics, to young maidens, to athletics the Whippet always str ived to succeed. His determination and outstanding personality will forever be valuable assets in his life as an officer. His friendship will long be valued highly by all who knew him. 354 JOHN DANDRIDGE HENLEY KANE, III John came to the shores of the Severn from St. George ' s School in Newport, Rhode Island. Being a Navy junior, he came knowing a good deal about the Navy and its way of life, and soon came to learn much more, setting a record of sorts with his nearly annual east coast cruise. Known to some as " Skinny " because of his slim appearance, John could be found gracing Navy ' s soccer field as a varsity participant. His many and varied interests, from art and literature to sports and Navy p-rades, made him a well- rounded individual, ready to take charge and to assume the re- sponsibilities and challenges of a Naval career. With his determina- tion and dedication, John will be a welcome addition to the fleet. JOSEPH FRANKLIN KELLER The Ozarks, Neosho, Missouri, to be exact, prepared this un- tamed lad for the rigorous life here at Navy. ' The Scab " managed to make excellent grades Plebe year despite frequent and vigorous exercise. Always the life of any party Joey never allowed his night life to interfere with academics and could often be seen pushing a pencil and slide rule far into the night. When not hitting the books, Joey ' s attention was directed either toward the tennis courts and fieldball fields where his desire and hustle always made him a standout, or toward women and cars when away from athletics. His excellent grades, willingness to work, desire to suc- ceed and excellent sense of humor will make Joey an outstanding addition to the fleet upon graduation. DAVID BALFOUR MAKER, JR. Dave, k nown to some as " Sparky, " came to Navy via a Presidential appointment from the sunny climes of Costa Mesa, California Although the life of a year at Orange Coast Junior College was not very comparable to Plebe year at USNA, Dave was able to adapt well to the rigors of the " lower Estate. " A solid Navy background had convinced him of what he wanted and prepared him for life at " Navy. " Dave ' s fighting spirit, always present on the athletic fields of endeavor, carried him through two salty Youngster tours of duty, back on and near the sandy beaches of the West Coast. The Naval Service will find Dave a credit to the standards it upholds. JOHN MICHAEL MASICA Mike came to Navy via Bullis from Hawaii. It was hard to leave his surfboard behind but he managed the transition from beach boy to midshipman quite well. Mike was a standout in whatever sport he participated in, from soccer to company sports. Young- ster year brought the first of Mike ' s many bouts with the academic department, but somehow he always managed to pull through, especially during finals. He was well known for clowning around jring study hour and hardly a night passed without a visit from -1. Most of the weekends that weren ' t spent with the Executive eoartment, found Mike in the company of one of the fairer sex. With his tremendous desire, Mike will make an outstanding officer. H WILLIAM R. MEDFORD California lost a bit of sunsfiine when Meds left for the Acad- emy. Plebe Summer found Meds as 4 c Regimental Boxing Cham- pion. The upperclass should have taken note because he powered his way to the Brigade Championship to be the first ' 69er to win his Varsity " N " . Academics posed no real problem to Bill, a Math slash, but his 3.00 was always a little shaky. Meds was the most feared 2 c squad leader Plebe Summer as any member of ' 71 will attest. Bill was an enterprising midshipman and consequently was no stranger to restriction musters. His good nature and active interest in the Navy should make Bill a great addition to the Naval Service. 1 PAUL RUSLEY MEEKER A year at Purdue was the stepping stone between Beavercreek, Ohio and the Academy for " Qua. " Besides being active in the NROTC program, he managed a 3.39 in the Electrical Engineering curriculum. Finding that wires at USNA was some sort of magic done with mirrors, he quickly switched to management where he excelled. He managed to get into the Antiphonal Choir, even though he couldn ' t carry a tune in a tin pail. However, most of his time was spent at the pool as varsity swimming manager, or playing a hard game of water polo for the batt. His gregarious nature and quick wit have made " Qua " many friends who are justified in expecting nothing but the best from him. JOHN THOMAS MILES John arrived at Navy a day earlier than the rest of the class, coming to the Marble Monastery via NAPS. Homeported in Rochester, New York he always had a few girls on the line and could be depended upon for a phone number of two. Academics wereagrind for J. T., but he worked hard and could usually supply answers to those tough problems dealing with magic, J. T., some- times known as the " Aqua Rock " , enjoyed his career as varsity gym manager. Although he worked hard, he didn ' t let the finer things in life pass him by. Always remembered for his quick and warm personality, John is headed right for the top! MICHAEL JOHN PACKARD Joining the Navy " to see the world " , Mike arrived in Crabtown from sunny California in search of new horizons. Mike ' s insatiable interest in literature prevented him from slashing out in his steam and skinny courses, but he didn ' t allow the thought to keep him awake at night. In the afternoons, when not working out on the blue trampoline, he could be found swinging his racquet on the squash or tennis court. Other activities included the Spanish Club, a year on the Log Staff, the BAC and the one pursuit that we all have in common. " Vance " has an excellent sense of humor and an appreciation of the finer things in life which, combined with his high personal standards, should lead him to an eventful and rewarding career. RICHARD RANDOLPH REECE Rich came to the banks of the Severn upon graduation from high school in Johnson City, Tennessee. Bringing from its rolling hills his rich, flowing southern accent and personable manner, he consistently endeavored to be the best in all things he undertook. A standout on the battalion tennis and swimming teams, he was always a sportsman with a ready smile. As a member of the French, AIAA, and Scuba Club, this Tennessee lad still found time to study in the field of Aerospace Engineering. He was among the most proficient in the company in academics. A good-natured soul, Rich possesses the determination and great spirit that will make him a acredit to our nation ' s Navy. 356 d ROBERT LOUIS REUSCHE, II Bob came to the Naval Academy from the carefree existence as an Air Force brat. While the Navy way of life came as a shock, he found life m Bancroft bearable. Bob ' s devotion to order and logic was demonstrated by his choice of study in Operations Analysis. He could find application of these techniques in nearly all phases of his ordered life. On weekends. Bob could usually be found dragging or playing tennis. A devoted athlete Bob found great enjoyment in all sports, especially those aquatic. His great love of water makes the Navy a most logical choice for his career. Bob ' s unquestionable sincerity and honesty made him a fine classmate and will assure his success in whatever he chooses to undertake. ROBERT MICHAEL SCHARNUS After deciding to cram four years of training and preparation towards graduation and a commission into five. Bo settled down to breeze through Naval Academy life in his own inimitable manner. Not the least known of his feats is the fact that he once slept for 36 straight hours (with the help of a chit from Sick Bay) and rumor has it that his daily average was up in the high teens. He did manage to be awake long enough to excel on both the varsity lacrosse and football teams, however, the sounds of his guitar could be heard every evening around study hour time. Whatever he chooses Bo is certain to become a success. PAUL HENRY SCHERF, JR. Hank, hailing from the state of Ohio, made the transition from civilian to naval officer quite easily and readily. He worked dili- gently and without failure in the field of academics. More often than not Hank wore stars through his efforts to complete the difficult curriculum required by an Aerospace Engineering major. His interest in Naval aviation was also demonstrated in his activi- ties with the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. Omar ' s tremendous competitive spirit and desire to excel was carried over into athletics where he was continually one of the standouts for many fine teams. Along with his professional and academic prowess, Hank ' s high sense of personal honor and integ- rity will make him an outstanding shipmate wherever he may serve. BRADLEY WILLIAM SPAHR Brad joined the Brigade immediately after graduating from high school in the snowy wonderland of Holland, Michigan. He quickly adapted to life at Navy and being never content to be average in anything, he could often be found hard at work pushing around the iron in the weight room or the pencil on his desk. The " Big Red ' s " friendly, outgoing personality and willingness to help will earn him many lasting friendships wherever he may go. Among Brad ' s keener interests are cars, eating, soul sounds, sports and rum. His fierce desire to excel and ability to learn quickly will certainly make Spahrly stand out wherever he goes. JACKSON ALLISON STOCKTON Being a Navy junior, " Fat Jack " had little trouble conforming to the rigors of Academy life. In fact, he made it look easy. Free periods generally found him relaxing in his room or soaking up a little sun. Never one to refuse friendly competition, a great deal of his spare time was spent on the tennis or basketball court. Though friendly, you could always count on his agressiveness and skill to inspire the play or his teammates as well as his opponents. Acade- mics caused minor problems but Jack was always ready to give and receive help whenever possible. His big smile, which was recog- nized throughout the Brigade, won him many very close friends and was welcome at any social affair. Jack ' s drive and determina- tion will prove to be very important assets in the years to come. DAVID CHURCHMAN TRIMBLE, JR. Dave, equally well-known as " Iodine " , " D. C. " and " The Washington Shake " , came from the last Frontier of the Old West, Arizona Hiking and riding didn ' t exactly prepare Dave for the Navy, but once through Plebe year and after a thrilling Youngster cruise on an AKA he knew this was where he wanted to stay. Deciding to develop to the fullest in all directions Dave started a weightlifting program, eventually joining the batt weightlifting team. Working just as diligently in the academic department, Dave was soon on the Superintendent ' s List. He quickly found that the resulting extra liberty was very useful: once the opposite sex discovered the tall, rangy Arizonan there was hardly a weekend he wasn ' t dragging Dave ' s unfailing good humor and genuine interest in people won him many friends and should see him will through life.

All the Plebes and any upperclass who reads about his misconduct in triplicate are sporting them. Perhaps the most impres- sive feat performed by the company was turned in by the heavyweight football team. Undefeated in regular play, they swept through the divisional and regimental eliminations, and won the Brigade cham- pionship match on a windswept Hospital Point. The social highlight of the year has to be the impending nuptials of the Company Officer. All are anxious to see what influence married life will have on him. The 19th Company is a proud company. It has left a lasting impression of scholastic effort, athletic excellence, and military superiority on the Brigade. SPRING SET: CO. CDR: R. C. Lottie; SUBCDR: T R. Fedyszyn; CPO; J. P.

Each time he helps us with our books, Councils and advises, Heads turn, eyes roll, we exchange looks, And every eye brow rises Returning from his tactics drills, Lost and hopelessly searching, he Eagerly bags it with a will, So he won ' t have to go marching. And as we all march and sweat and strain, Doing our best for old Nineteen, Adams rests by using his brain, and Making the best of the Sailing Team. Salutamus. JAMES PAUL BESSEY Paul, a native of California, spent his four years at Navy con- vinced that the Academy should have been located in the Golden State. An avid hunter, Paul is looking forward to graduation when he can once again pursue his favorite pastime to a limited degree. Not possessing the love of the sea common to most successful line officers, Paul is anticipating a career that will combine his hobby with a profession. DOUGLAS SCOTT BISHOP Big Bish, sporting an all-Michigan basketball position, chose Navy as the team to lead to the NCAA Championship. His plans were ruined but not by his own inability. However, the " Douger " was quickly accepted on the proverbial major restrictors ' team due to his hunger for Buzzy ' s pizza, his after taps liberty habits and his inability to endure long bus rides. Although healthy looking, due to his window ledge suntan, Doug was a very sickly person, but only on Wednesday afternoons. One day as they gaze admiringly at his tomb next to J. P. J. ' s, a man will tell his son " Yes that ' s Bish, the only man Navy couldn ' t bea t. " RICHARD HENRY BRIGGS Rick hails from the arid wasteland or plush tropical desert of Arizona, which ever you prefer. He either got his freckles and red hair from the hot dry weather at home or the sweet taste of College life he enjoyed at Arizona State before coming to Navy. The only man at the Academy to boast that his picture was put on a cover of TIME magazine for being a ' perpetual restrictee ' , he always had a way with women as those who are close to him well know. The haircut he ' ll never forget and his avid interest in the Marine Corps have earned him the nickname of Recon, while his subtle humor, crooked grin and outstanding potential as an officer are sure to be welcome. I ( DUDLEY HARRISON CHASE A 1964 graduate of Cranford High School in New Jersey, Dud fir st spent a year at Rutgers University and in the Naval Reserve before giving up college life for an appointment to USNA. Having played soccer and ice hockey at Rutgers, he played plebe soccer and still wishes that Navy had a hockey rink. Constantly on the Supt ' s or Dean ' s List, Dud managed to do this with as little time as possible spent pouring over the books. Although basically the quiet and shy type Dudley was always friendly and willing to help out a classmate. Working hard as an Aero major. Dud should be one of the " leanest and meanest " navigators in the Navy. RONALD LEE CHRISTENSON Rabbit arrived at USNA with aspirations of putting the " Big Blue " back into the national football limelight. His high ideals were hampered, however, by a nearsighted coaching staff and a broken collarbone when he finally made the varsity. The " Bitsky " is known to his friends as a big, fast, tough, smart competitor. His achievements with the opposite sex are legend! The Bit ' s quick wit during his tenure here has constantly been almost too much to endure. As Ron makes that long deployment from the forecastle to the fantail of life, ultimately for that big promotion in the sky, where ever he passes by, people will say, " He was smiling ' . He was smiling ' that ' Big smile. ' " 364 — ALBERT STEPHEN CONLON Bert came to the Academy from Lynn English High, turning down several academic scholarships in the process. At the Acad- emy, Bert ' s interests changed from academics to athletics where he participated in the plebe soccer team, various company sports and was a noted standout performer on the swimming sub squad. He sometimes tended to become over exuberant on liberty and was often observed loitering in front of the Main Office on weekends. Bert plans to invest his money in stocks and make a killing before the depression hits. His sense of humor and keen devotion will serve him well as an officer of the Naval Service. JEFFREY DODD CRAWFORD Jeff, following in the grand traditions of Lord Nelson and Horatio Hornblower, embarked upon his Naval career directly from McLean High School, McLean, Virginia. A prolific reader and captivating conversationalist, he usually would prefer to retire to his personal library for a book than accept suggestions from the academic departments. Many of " Crawf ' s " seventh periods were pre-empted by the P. T. Department for additional instruction in the fine arts of running and boxing. His firm belief in the Plebe system and honor concept distinguished " The Shadow " as an exemplary midshipman. His dedication and love for the Naval Service and desire for action will certainly enable Jeff to prove himself a fine addition to the destroyer fleet. JOHN MICHAEL CROAKE Jack came to the Academy from Easthampton, Massachusetts not knowing what was in store for him. Once settled for Plebe year he was a member of the Plebe soccer team but was soon to discover that his athletic abilities did not extend to the natato- rium. Apparently, a few extra sessions helped him because he ' s swimming better. His interests also lie elsewhere, namely in Navy ' s blue, horizontal escape capsule and in low, fast objects. Jack has always appreciated the good messhall food and that from home, too. Afternoons find him participating in his favorite sport or else exercising in one form or another. Always well liked by his classmates and easy to get along with. Jack will be a desirable addition to our Navy. DAVID MARK ENMAN Dave came to the Academy directly from Central High School in Manchester, New Hamps hire. A fine all-around athlete, Dave played plebe and J.V. football before turning his efforts to the Fourth Battalion rugby team. An excellent swimmer and runner, his greatest enthusiasm was saved for skiing the hills of N. H. Math was Dave ' s " specialty " and though he had several close calls with the Academic Board, he always managed to come out on top. His efforts were rewarded by making the Supt ' s List Youngster year. Dark and handsome, he always had a smile for a pretty girl and could often be found writing a letter to one of his many admirers. His spirit and determination will make him a fine naval officer. .1 THOMAS RAYMOND FEDYSZYN Tom came to Navy from the ivy-covered walls of Cardinal Mindszenty High School. Since leaving the site of the world ' s largest one piece wooden flagpole, he has taken full advantage of what the Academy had to offer, academically and otherwise. Usually seen wearing stars, his low cut black tennis shoes are no strangers to the squash and tennis courts or the golf course. " Feds " has also spent much time in the smoke filled rooms of varsity debate tournaments and on the European rally circuit. Wherever he spends his first tour, Tom will be launching a career which is sure to be as successful as his tenure at USNA. ROBERT EUGENE FRANGIONE Friendly, reliable, omnivorous and oallant - these are the qualities outstanding in theeveryday life of Bob Frangione. Bob came to the Naval Academy directly from high school where he was a standout performer in football and track. Having worked hard during plebe year, he found Youngster year a little less demanding. Bob never considered academics to be his primary interest but he could occasionally be observed spending long hours in the " horizontal lab. " He longed for the good " college life " but sacrificed this to obtain a Naval Academy ' s fine education. Be- cause of his friendly attitude and easy going personality. Bob will undoubtedly become a success. 365 DONALD EUGENE FREED Don, a product of Dallastown High School, York, Pennsylvania, came to the Academy after serving in the Fleet for a year and then attending another year at NAPS. He started off his stay at the Academy by holding the highest class average in Plebe chemistry for the year. Smce then he has maintained a high academic standing that should prove to be both beneficial to himself and the Navy in the future. Next to his girl, Don likes his motorcycle. A sports buff from way back, Don played company soccer, basket- ball, touch football and Softball. Don should become an important and valuable member of the naval service, after graduation. LESTER ORIS GARDNER, JR. Following his graduation from high school in Center Line, Michigan, Les came to the Naval Academy on a Congressional appointment. In the field of academics, Les was interested most in the courses offered by the English Department, gaining a minor in foreign affairs. Although he found less time to devote to his studies as the semesters passed, he still managed to make the Supt ' s List three times and the Dean ' s List once. Highly interested in sports, Les devoted many of his afternoons to winning efforts in company soccer, football, and Softball. With his good attitude and strong drive, Les will make an outstanding officer in the Navy. I RONALD CHALMERS HOOD, III Hailing from New York City, Ron brought with him a bit of Broadway when he came to Navy. He gamed Brigade wide recogni- tion for his major parts in numerous Masquerader productions and in the lesser roles as " the mad Monk " and " the man in the window. " Ron added to his already broad knowledge of the Navy when he learned, the hard way, that a kilt is considered " improper civilian attire. " His many all nighters bought him sure " A ' s " in his French and Bull electives which were usually used to compensate for the Skinny and Steam Departments. Whatever course Ron settles upon for the future, he is sure to make a valuable contribu- tion. ROBERT DANA KNOWLTON Robbo, as his friends call him, comes to us from Lenox, Massachusetts. Before coming to the Academy he attended one year of Berkshire Community College. In his spare time he in- structed skiing, was sextant of his church and also wound the town clock. Bob decided that he wanted something better in life so he decided to attend the Academy where finally he got to use his art talents and mechanical ability in his minor Naval Architec- ture. Always ready with a funny line, Bob has begun many friendships that have made his years at the Academy enjoyable ones. I STEPHEN THOMAS LINDER Steve came to the Academy straight from the suburbs of Pittsburgh. Taken under the wing of a very conscientious upper- classman, he learned the value of professionalism and quickly adapted to the military life. Due to his size he found himself in the rear of a crew shell during Plebe year. A straight " A " student in the Physical Education Department, Steve spent many a long night trying to stay even with the demanding courses of the Engineering Department. Although the " little feller " never grew in size, his never-say-die attitude in everything he did gained him the friend- ship and respect of all. His professional attitude toward the Naval Service and his ease of winning new friends, will make for easy sailing in the Fleet. RICHARD CHRIS LOTTIE Rick entered the Naval Academy right after graduation from high school in Minneapolis and was always ready to deliver an extemporaneous speech on the finer points of the Twin Cities. " Lootie " as we all know him, served a year in the Naval Reserve before getting his appointment. Although he wasn ' t a fierce com- petitor on the athletic fields, " Lots " ; was an outstanding Brigade boxer as well as weightlifter. One of his trademarks was his " good " jokes and never ceasing ability to get the gouge before anyone else. Rick ' s true loyalty to his friends will always stay with him and the Fleet will get one of the most dedicated officers to have graduated from the Academy. 366 NEWTON HENRY MORGAN, JR., Newt, a well-travelled Navy Junior, came to USNA directly from O ' Connell High School in Arlington, Virginia. A dependable member of company and battalion sports squads throughout his four years, he was eventually led by his love of sun, wind and sea to the Midshipmen ' s Sailing Squadron and the schooner. Freedom, on which he enjoyed many hours on the Bay. After an early encounter with the Academic Board, Newt began personal crusade which culminated in his gaining his long sought after stars. His academic endeavors, however, rarely failed to put a dent in a busy social calendar. Newt ' s spirit and determination will surely make him a welcome member of whichever branch of the service he selects. BRIAN O ' ROURKE Hailing from Coronado, California, Brian ' s first experience with the sea came at an early age. aboard the Coronado ferry. With the profound knowledge obtained from his frequent ferry rides and being a Navy Junio r the Academy was merely the next logical step in his development. Although he never quite recovered from his first military haircut, Brian soon became very well adapted to the Academy routine and very aware of the many " benefits " derived from it. Regardless of the branch of service he chooses Brian will be a welcome asset. JOHN BRAMWELL PADGETT, III John, a Navy Junior, came to Annapolis from the Norwich Free Academy in Norwich, Connecticut. He easily made the transi- tion to Naval Academy life through his outstanding natural abili- ties and desire. He made a name for himself as a good student and even better athlete, appearing on the Supt ' s List often and excel- ling as a defenseman on the Navy lacrosse team. John, being a well-rounded individual, was also known for enjoying the finer things in life. His outstanding ability to get along with people will always stand him in good stead, enabling him to come out on top in everything that he attempts. DAVID LEE PROSSER Son of a Navy Chief, Dave brought his unequaled wit to USNA from nearby Virginia. Despite the nickname of " Zombie " , he was seldom without a lovely companion on the weekends. As a firm believer in osmosis he could usually be found in his pad during free periods. On the afternoons when he could escape the swim- ming sub squad Dave was a mainstay on the batt squash team in the Fall and the best varsity racket stringer at USNA during the winter. His attention to detail and administrative ability should serve him well in his chosen Navy line. JAMES SCOTT VAN PELT Jim entered the Naval Academy after attending one year at South Dakota Tech in hometown Rapid City. Deeply seeded in his background is a love of the summers spent in the Black Hills of South Dakota; particularly those spent at the " Days of ' 76 " which provided him with many fine memories. Maybe this is where he developed the carefree, lighthearted attitude which followed him through the halls at Navy. Jim enjoys contact sports which led him to weightlifting, basketball, and Navy ' s football team. His great sense of humor and dedication to the " finer " things in life promise him success and a bright future. MICHAEL JESSE WORLEY Mike came East to Annapolis from the " City by the Bay " as a Navy Junior. Although his heart remained in San Francisco, he adapted at once to the rigors of life in Bancroft Hall. Never one to worry about academics, Mike maintained a comfortable lead over 2 0, while he excelled on the varsity baseball diamond as well as in company sports. He sharp eye for the finer thing s in life stood him in good stead for many fine times. He never lost sight of his primary goal, to become a Naval Officer, and this dedication and his natural ability will make Mike an attribute to which ever service he selects. 367 20TH COMPANY SECOND CLASS Row 1: Huddleston.

" ' |r,iiiiiiiiniiiiiiinHK The Class of 1969 came to the Twentieth Company from the " old Fourteenth. " Those two years on seven-four saw innumerable horror shows and now legendary happenings. The company ' s resident so- ciologist divided us into three groups: the super-cools on one end, the clods on the other, and an amorphous mass in the middle. As Youngsters we put on a Christmas show which guaranteed all of us a spot in hell, held nightly airraids (WW II style), and collected a managerie of dead animals. We moved to the Twentieth Company in time to help our newly arrived company officer win the coveted " Rookie of the Year " award and acquire a few gray hairs. This year. Twentieth Company has distinguished itself above all others. No other company can boast two Trident Scholars, two Battalion Commanders, one All-American Soc- cer Player . . . and an amorphous mass. k SPRING SET: CO. CDR: P.

Arne came to the Academy, via Presidential appointment, from Huntington Beach, California. Prior schooling Included attendance at Vlllanova Preparatory School, and CalState College at Long Beach. His extra-curricular activities included the Log, Italian Club and Foreign Relations Club, in addition to being the Lucky Bag and Company Representative. He was a member of the Plebe gymnastics, batt and varsity fencing teams, and the sailing squad- ron. Arne is a man capable of achievement over and above the average and expected modicum, always in search of enlargement and fulfillment, and in hot pursuit of a Walden Pool and a Coney Island RICHARD JOSEPH BARTLETT Dick visited the Naval Academy during his senior year in high school confirming his desire to be a midshipman. And a lucky choice for the Navy it was, Dick was unbeatable in both indoor and outdoor track and did so well in soccer that he played his last year as Team Captain. Academics never seemed to be a problem for Dick as evidenced by his numerous appearances on the Supt ' s List. His chosen minor was foreign affairs, but during the week- ends he seemed more active in local affairs for which he was always in demand and willing to contribute actively. With this kind of dedication and the capabilities Dick has exhibited already he will meet with unqualified success wherever he goes. L EDWARD MICHAEL BRELSFORD With a sad " Good-bye " to the sunny beaches of Miami and a pleasure filled semester at the University of Miami, " Brels " hearierl for the halls of Mother B. After a tough year of character building, Ed decided to put his gifted intellectual and athletic abilities to work thinking up new ways to beat the system and fighting the blue pad monster every afternoon. Ed is an active competitor in heavyweight football, company soccer and battalion track. He even devotes some of his spare time to studying. He plans on making Naval Air his career, but whether he flies or not, Ed will make a fine addition to the Navy as an officer. LAWRENCE JOSEPH BRENNER Larry gave up the sunny skies of Southern California to return to the East Coast and the cold weather. Although straight out of high school, academics never gave him much trouble but a three year battle with the Math Department ended in a draw. The lure of the Academy ' s yawls forced Larry to sacrifice advanced infan- try on Worden Field. " Why march when you can ride ' " was his motto. The pistol range saw Larry during the winter only because it was indoors and surprisingly enough, he hit the target most of the time. Weekends found Larry in Alexandria or at the Play- house, and at term paper time, in his room. His intelligence and desire were his strong points and will make him a credit to the Navy. I CHARLES LYNN BUTLER Lynn, or " Butts " as he has come to be known here at USNA, came to the Class of ' 69 from the southwest U.S. He received his appointment from his Congressman in Kansas, but New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma are just as much his home. The mountains — camping in the summer, skimg in the winter — are his favorite pastimes. When he ' s here at Navy it ' s a good bet that you ' ll find him either losing the eternal battle with the pad monster, studying his favorite subject " Aero " , or out on the Y.P. ' s - all the while polishing a great sense of humor, and constantly working hard to become the fine officer that he surely will be. WILLIAM FRANCIS CLIFFORD Cliff hails from Madison, Connecticut and came to the Acad- emy on a Congressional appointment. The great many friends which he has made at the Academy attest to his winning person- ality and fine character. He was a firm believer in man ' s occasional need for " wine, women and song. " He got through with a maxi- mum amount of close calls and the most fun that could be had while living in the confines of Mother Bancroft. His running battle with the Executive Department was infamous. Cliff was on the winning 150 lb. football team as well as the rugby and fieldball teams. Bill ' s success in later life will be largely due to his excellent personality and attitude. 370 HARRISON GROVER DUDLEY After spending a year at Penn State University, " Duds " tired of the gay campus life under the NROTC program and decided to try his hand at the Academy. Greatly motivated towards a career in the Navy, Duds could always be found hitting the books or enjoying his favorite pastime, the tube. Having played football in high school, he naturally played company football as well as Softball. He was also a member of the Antiphonal Choir, and though he claimed that he could sing, there were many who did not agree. With his determination and positive outlook on life. Duds should perform an outstanding job in whatever duties to which he may be assigned. KENTON WILLIAM ELDERKIN Ken entered USNA after three years of college and Marine Corps training. Older and more experienced than his classmates — and with a natural ability to lead, he was quickly looked up to by his friends and classmates. Ken was endowed with eviable athletic ability, but although he kept himself in excellent physical condi- tion, he valued far more the opportunity to develop his mind. Always an individualist with convictions of his own, he was nevertheless a master at inspiring teamwork, and his loyalty made his friendship especially esteemed by those to whom he gave it. Ken is blessed with an inquisitive, sharp and imaginative mind and is certain to earn the continued respect and admiration of those who know him. JOHN E. GANTLEY Jack entered the hallowed halls of Bancroft after a historic career in Quincy, Massachusetts. An outstanding athlete, he found his calling on the football field, where his winning will won him an " N " star and a starting berth on the Navy eleven for three years. Jack was a welcome addition to any team, as he also played JV lacrosse, company basketball and fieldball. Not to be outdone on the athletic field, he likewise was not to be outdone on the weekends; and where Jack could be found — there was action!! Jack ' s drive and determination to complete any task to his utmost will assure him a successful career in any field he encounters. WALTER RUDOLPH GIRALDI Walt came to the Academy after graduating from Xavier High School in New York City and spending a year as a weekend warrior and four as a subway commando. He carried over his background in sports to participate in Plebe and varsity soccer and track. After Youngster year " individual workouts " consumed most of his afternoons. As for academics, it was 2.0 a go-go right on through. Social endeavors were by far Walt ' s major field of interest; " The Wop " and his girls were a living legend. Walt ' s enthusiasm and dedication will be his key to success and will render him a credit to the Naval Service. 1 ¥ DAVID C.JARRETT Prompted by a strong desire to self-improve himself, Dave came here from Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Going out for boxing his Plebe year, and weightlifting as an upperclass, people soon found that, although there wasn ' t much of him, when they deal with Dave, they deal with dynamite. Possessing a keen sense of humor, he keeps us constantly convulsed, but he never fails to lend a warm and friendly hand to those in need. Loyal to his friends, faithful to his ideals, an inner fire and a steel will are the tools of his trade. A small man on the outside, a giant of a man on the inside, Dave will go far in the years to come. JOSE LUIS JIMENEZ " Joe " , as his friends call him, came to Annapolis from La Feria, Texas, where he had been valedictorian of his class and an Eagle Scout. His optimistic outlook and ready smile won many a friend; and to those who knew him best, his friendship was highly-valued and his opinion respected. Above all, he exemplified to his classmates the sense of honor and devotion to our country and the Naval Service to which they aspired. A natural athlete Joe enjoyed playing tennis and running cross country and he could be relied on to give the extra effort that often makes the difference. He IS liked and admired by all who know him and is a worthy addition to the officer corps of our nation ' s armed forces. PETER WILLIAM KRUSE Pete found his way to Annapolis after graduation from New York ' s St. Francis Prep. An outstanding swimmer, he has been the backbone of many a water polo team and even swam for the New York Athletic Club. Pete has also shown exceptional athletic ability in a Navy shell and as a member of four company fieldball teams. Proficiency in all phases of academics have given Pete a well established position on both the Supt ' s and Dean ' s Lists. Many of his classmates have Pete to thank for solutions to some Math and Physics problems which generated looks of bewilderment from others. With his varied abilities and dynamic personality, Pete will be a credit to the Fleet. SAMUEL HARRY LARSEN Sam came to us from Security, Colorado, a mile up and 1,500 miles thataway. Salutatorian of his high school, a " P.K. " with a wry grin, a memory as long as your arm, and a slight Colorado drawl, Sam brings us a flavor of the Old West . After floundering in Physics, as in swimming, for a year, Sam switched to Foreign Affairs and the ensuing stream of A ' s that followed from his overnight term papers brought him both widespread fame and awe. Sam is an outstanding debater and has excelled both in varsity fencing and in the YP Squadron. Known for his stability, possessing a tempered tenacity, Sam is destined for a rendezvous with success. RICHARD I. LYLES, III A native of Pueblo, Colorado, Dick brought to Navy a pleasing personality with which to smooth the bumpy four year road. His running battle with the academic department will long be remem- bered on both ends of Stribling Walk. " Diko ' s " extracurricular activities included membership on the Ring and Crest Committee and the Honor Committee, of which he was Secretary-Recorder. He played on the J.V. soccer team, as well as the intramural football and rugby teams. Dick leaves behind a somewhat famous record in the field of social activities, always ready to contribute to a good time for all. With his keen sense of competition, lively wit and military bearing, Dick should go far in his chosen profession and be a definite asset to the Navy. CALVIN PERRY McCLAIN, JR. Mac came to the Naval Academy from Anderson, South Caro- lina where he as a Naval Reservist. Studies occupied much of his time at Navy. He was consistent in appearing on the Dean ' s List, and first class year found him hard at work on a Trident Project. An avid reader, Mac possessed a library that any small town would be proud of, but the pad was always a competitor for his time. Mac ' s extracurricular interests included the Foreign Relations Club and the Academy ' s chapter of Sigma Pi Sigma of which he was President first class year. Due to his intelligence and hard work, Mac will surely go far in his chosen profession. 372 SI LEONARD DIXON McCUMBER, JR. With a well-entranched New England background, Len was always quick to defend his Bostonian culture. Fromthe very start, he lived the words of Admiral Kirkpatrick, " You can do anything you set your mind to, and don ' t you ever forget it. " In attaining the highest academic goals, it can be said that he put less time in the pad than any other man ever to go through the Academy. Although actively participating in the overload and majors pro- grams, he could always find time to help others in academics. His ability in academics was finely complemented by a strong com- petitive spirit on the athletic field. Lens ability to apply himself with his characteristic Yankee vigor will guarantee his success in whatever he may endeavor to do in life. THOMAS JAMES McKEON Tom hails from Hicksville, New York and came to the Acade- my after a year at Bullis Prep. Mac ' s main attribute was his football prowess, as he played for the Big Blue for three years. While not on the football field, he could be found wading around the instruction pool. Tom was in the running for the D.A.R. award for excellence in academics and conduct, until second class year caught up with him. Well liked by all his all classmates, his warm personality and ready smile will be remembered by all. With his determination for success, Tom will be an asset to any command. DENNIS MICHAEL MURPHY The second cold war of the century began, when Ole Murph entered USNA. Coming from Ozark, Alabama, an " Army brat " , widely traveled, steeped with Chinese intrigue and a two year veteran of the Marion Military Institute, Denny joined us with a zeal for fun, a bag of tricks, a big grin, and an uncanny ability to sidestep the ensuing wrath of his natural but most formidable adversary, the Executive Department. Den is our company and honor representative, is on the BAC and Scuba Club and actively participates in varsity rifle and sailing teams. His personal charm and unfailing sense of humor serve him well and he is destined to make an outstanding naval officer. JAMES JOSEPH NORCONK, JR. President of his high school student body, receiving a Naval Reserve appointment, a hard worker dedicated to Aeronautical Engineering, a naval career and a sound set of ethics, " Conk " comes to us from DeLand, Florida. Jim travels far and wide in the Glee Club, is a member of long standing on the Dean ' s List and still finds time in his busy day to be an active member in the Catholic Choir. Although seriously purposed, when mixed with water, this soft shelled " Conk " is instant fun — be it at the beach, skiing, boating, a golfer ' s water hazard or even on a cruise. Jim ' s genial personality, quick mind and genuine concern for the indi- vidual will carry him far in his naval service. UV ' Ui Mv 373 FREDERICK DEWEY PUNCKE, JR. When Rick packed his seabag. left the peaceful and sunny climate of southern Florida, and entered the Naval Academy, he wasn ' t really aware of what was in store for him. Yet with the previous Naval Reserve training, he was able to take everything in a very relaxed manner during the four years at the Academy. Not one to break tradition, he spent his evenings either in the pad or (if no new books existed) studying, and spent his weekends viewmg the only changing features of the neighboring metropolis of Annapolis. With the excellent background from the Y.P. Squad- ron, Rick should have no trouble in making a last ' ng impression upon the Fleet. " ' ' FALLS GERALD JEFFREY SAUNDERS Jerry came to the banks of the Severn from Long Island, New York, where he captained his high school football team. Finding that he was a little too small for big time football, he concentrated his athletic efforts on rugby, fieldball and sailing. Jerry managed to maintain a 3.0 while obtaining an Engineering major with a minimal amount of work, and was one of the few Middies ever to pass as a Chief during his Plebe year. His wit and humor were the life of any party and Jerry was the center of attraction wherever he went. The Navy is gaining an outstanding individual and leader when Jerry graduates. TIMOTHY JOSEPH SULLIVAN Tim came to the Naval Academy from Baker, Oregon, hence you could always hear Tim arguing with the guys about how great it was to come from the " sticks " . Tim actively participated in such sports as tennis, Softball and fieldball and could also be counted on to give an opponent a tough game in the squash courts during exam week. Academically, Tim was known for his hard work and persenerance and was always willing to help his less gifted class- mates. When the weekend rolled around, Tim turned from his academics to pursue such high ideals as women and parties. Upon graduation, Tim ' s well rounded personality should add a dedicated naval officer to the fleet. I s«- ROBERT ALFRED TOLHURST, JR. Born in Augusta, Georgia, Bob is familiar with military life. His father is regular Air Force (retired), and this has resulted in Bob living in many different parts of the country and Japan as well. It was while living in Tokyo that Bob first took up his present sport of pole vaulting, first jumping nto a dirt pit with a bamboo pole. Bob also played football and swam in high school, his summers being spent as a lifeguard watching all the pretty girls. Since coming to the Academy Bob has managed to keep his grades near the 3.0 mark while participating in track both indoors and out. RICHARD ALDEN WOODWORTH Richard Alden Woodworth, a Connecticut Yankee in Tecumseh ' s Court, is not one to go at anything half-heartedly. Whether it ' s soccer, Softball, sailing, singing, sunning or sleeping - Woody can hold his own. Foreign cars and " four-N " mornings — he swears by the former and at the latter, but nevertheless he finds equal time to study " wires " and wire wheels. Woody the connois- seur of automobiles and audio equipment is surpassed only by Woody the connoisseur of food and wines. A never-ending smile and a bubbling personality have won Woody many friends at Navy and away. The rewards of hard work and dedication are sure to come to him as he embarks upon a career as the fine officer he is sure to be. 374 ' «INc 21st Company 1 ' ». v FALL SET: CDR: W J Boese; SUBCDR: W.

Once we were in the swing of things life was much easier around the " wonderful womb. " After a few trial runs there came the traditional Army blast in Philly. Then there was that last x-mas at home as a mid and the " almost last " exams. Somehow everybody squeaked by and we charged off into the dark ages. The dismal winter saw the b-ball team almost make it and the lightweights definitely, with an 0-7 mark. Sen ice selection was a sad affair, as we lost five to the green.

Although he gripes with the best of us, the victory at sea movies in the Second Class wardroom surface that go Navy look all over his exuberant face. " That ' s the Navy. " An ardent sports enthusiast, his highs and lows are in direct proportion to Navy ' s, and his own successes on the athletic field. Jim ' s carefree, lively personality has won him many friends throughout the Brigade, and his ready laugh make his company the kind one never tires of. The personal magnetism and well- deserved self respect will make Jim an inspiring young naval officer. CLAIRE MICHAEL BEUCLER Mike came to USNA from Arlington, Ohio, after spending two years at Ohio Northern University. Known to his classmates as the " old Goat " because of his greying hair, Mike ' s sense of humor and easy going disposition helped him adjust to the military. Although not an academic slash Mike always managed to come out on top with his main interest being in history. Athletically, Mike ' s favor- ite sports were fieldball and lacrosse. We are sure he will do well in whatever branch he chooses. WILLIAMJOHN BOESE Bill came to the Academy via the Marine Corps and NAPS. From the first day of the well remembered Plebe Summer, " Willy- B " demonstrated his great natural leadership ability. Always a staunch competitor. Bill excelled in baseball, basketball and soccer for the company teams. Although Bill is a hardworking individual, he was never one to pass up a good time. Every company party could count on his presence to liven things up. Bill ' s fine attitude and determination to win will always stand him in good stead regardless of his service choice. DAVID EDWARD BOGOSIAIM Dave ' s distinctive personality and unique sense of humor have won him many friends with all those he has come in contact with. On the playing field, whether in soccer, football, tennis or Softball, " Bogo " IS always a valuable member of the team because of his Stiff competitive nature and " never say die " attitude. As a Russian student, his gifted talents in this field made the foreign language program an easy mark. With prior service in the Naval Reserve, the Academy life was not hard for Dave to adjust to, and his professional attitude has made him invaluable in the company. Dave will definitely enliven any wardroom which he takes his place in. WILLIAM ALEXANDER BRAMLEY, III " Big Bill " came to the Academy from upstate New York equipped with the intellect that would earn him spots on both the Superintendent ' s List and Dean ' s List. But Bill ' s academic ability must take second place to his wit and great sense of humor. Always eager to do anything different. Bill could often be found in the midst of the hilarity of those frequent " bag-it " nights in Mother B. Whether engaged in a serious discussion of history, or livening up life at Navy with his various antics, " Brams " was always on top of the situation. A well respected and popular member of our class. Bill ' s ability to do a job well coupled with his sense of humor should place him at the top of the ladder in the fleet. WILLIAM EMMETT BROOKS, III Hailing from Vincennes, Indiana via a successful tour at Castle Military Academy, Billy came to the Academy full of vigor and enthusiasm, but was soon shocked into reality by the rigors of Plebe year and the " Math-Barns. " However, he found his place in the Foreign Affairs Department, where he always excelled. But not being confined to the newspapers, " Brooksie " was often found leading the intramural teams on the field, and everyone elsewhere. Billy is a great person to know, an individual who commands a great deal of respect, and will be an outstanding officer. 377 ■ ROBERT WILLIAM CONGER, JR. Having graduated with honors from Cedarburg High School, in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, Bob turned down a scholarship to Notre Dame to come to Navy at the tender age of 17. Quiet and shy until you get to know him, he made himself known around the yard by earning a starting berth on the national championship 150 - i football team second class year. Out of season. Bob was a stalwart on the company Softball and basketball teams and helped to win the Brigades in Softball Plebe year. Never a serious con- tender for the Supt ' s List, he displayed determination in the academic field as in every thing he tried. Quiet, serious, and persevering. Bob will make a fine officer just as he has made a fine classmate. PETER JOSEPH DEVRIES Coming from a small Lake Michigan community Pete promptly threw himself into the sailing program and established himself as one of the Academy ' s finest. An Oceanography Minor, he also delved into the secrets of the deep in the classroom. Summers spent afloat gave him many entertaining tales. Never one to turn down a bull session, in the wee hours you could find him relating countless experiences, real and otherwise. Navy air calls him strongly but wherever he goes his likeable personality will fit him into any wardroom. TERRY MICHAEL DILLON Terry came to Navy with no prior education, but Plebe year academics soon made him wish he had. He had this thing about Spanish which just would not quit until he crawled up Herndon June Week. With the advent of Youngster Year and Engineering courses, things changed a little and he began wearing stars and enjoying those Supt ' s List privileges for the rest of his affair with USNA. Terry was always busy athletically - varsity cross country and track and one year of sailing. He spent a lot of time at the library, but weekends found him driving all over the East Coast in little cars and generally enjoying life. After graduation he hopes to combine traveling and post-graduate schooling with his career. RUSSELL ALEXANDER DUKE, JR. Being an Army brat and world traveler, Russ finally saw the light and accepted the President ' s invitation to visit Annapolis. Once here he applied himself diligently and convinced the Math Department he should be on the Dean ' s as well as the Supt ' s Lists. During the fall and spring, good weather and fair winds lured Russ to the Chesapeake for sailing, while the winter months found him in the handball courts supporting his local battalion team. Early mornings he often braved the icy waters and perils of the Natatori- um to pursue his interests as well as utilize his leadership, Russ will make a fine Naval officer. CHARLES STEVEN FISHER Though slight of stature Steve ' s amiable personality has helped him to become one of the more popular individuals in the com- pany and the Brigade. As a Weapons major and perennial Brigade boxer Steve finds little free time for himself. Hailing from Washington, D. C. Steve is just a " hop, skip and a jump " from friends and family. When free time does avail itself " Fish " can be relied upon to make the most of it. Along with his work hard — play hard attitude, Steve will undoubtedly attain and far surpass any goals he sets for himself. RICHARD SCOTT HILLYER Rick began his career as a ROTC, but someone recognized Rick ' s aspirations for success. Rick left fraternity memories at UCLA and reported for the real Navy. A year of college and his military experience provided Rick with initial momentum to sur- mount shocking rigors of year One. Continuous dragging at the expense of intellectual pursuits carried Rick through three more years. Rick contributed to WRNV, slow-pitch and volleyball, and survived swimming with natural flotational advantages. Rick ' s particular attention to details of administration and his tenacious personality will be prime factors toward assured success in the Fleet. 378 MICHAEL ALLEN HOUGH A native of one of the nation ' s most notable, comnfiunities, Mike had been around quite a bit before he came to See the World. A former seminarian, brewmaster. railroader, whitehat and NAPSter. the Old Man Near the Sea has told many, many tales to most of his 4.000 man captive audience. Always a hard driver, a job well done to others marks the half-way point for Mike. thoug - his thoroughness and efficiency are not obvious to the uninitiated His robust and less than sonorous voice is familiar to residents and regular visitors to Navy alike, immortalized by his ascensions from the messhall as he would intone such pops as " Gaudeamus Igitur. " Mike ' s dynamic and aggressive character make him a natural lead- er. He is. at once, an experience and privilege to know. MICHAEL OWEN JONES Mike traveled from God ' s country to the shores of the Severn in search of challenge, found it, and quickly disposed of it in his tour years at USNA. No task, academic or athletic, proved too great for Mike, as he maintained a good QPR with relatively little effort and found time in his busy days for an everyday dip in the pool. A quick and easy smile earmarked Mike ' s relationships with his classmates and he could always be counted on to do his part when there was a job to be done. There is no doubt from anyone who has known Mike that this steady performance and dedication to the Navy will make him an outstanding young naval officer in the years to come. ' MILO JETHROE KILMER, II A Navy family sent Tom from Virgmia to USNA after com- piling an outstanding record at Granby High School in Norfolk. Milo, a name he would just as soon forget, could always be found excelling on the tennis courts or the " featherweight " football gridiron. An ardent mathematician, Tom was happiest when he could spend his time " bad-mouthing " his friends of the EH G Department who couldn ' t understand his love for numbers. Never one to turn his back on a party, Tom managed to liven things up with his knowledge of Math — " two parts of this + three parts of that equals? ' Tom ' s high professional motivation and ability to tackle any task will serve him well in his Naval career. RONALD LARUE LADD Ron came to the Academy from Lenox Prep School in Mass- achusetts. Electing to make his way through USNA on the " Five Year Plan, " Ron bounced back to find himself on both the Supt ' s List and the Dean ' s List. An excellent athlete, Ron was a soccer standout until he decided to devote his time to the study of the mysteries of the Math Department. Always finding time for the pad, Ron takes life as easy as possible. With his love for the unusual, some of Ron ' s adventures could qualify for " Believe It or Not. " His easy-going and fun-loving personality coupled with his ability to get a job done well will enable Ron to become a fine Naval officer. I ■ .9 HARRY RICHARD MOORE, IV Rich came to Navy a California son of the beaches to find hfe a httie different from sun and sand. His first two years he managed to earn stars each semester, easing the strain on his QPR during first class year. He played a major role in developing the Photo Club into a high active organization. Other interests include skiing, cars, leave and good companionship — preferably feminine. After three hard years " hrmii " saw first class year a time to enjoy, with a little caution. JOHN DALE NASH Not a person to believe in the " ours is not to reason why " type of mentality, Jack ' s inquisitive intellect was somewhat rare at the Naval Academy. After s pending a year at Purdue, he came to Navy with a mature mind and found Naval Academy life not much of a challenge. Because of this and because of his desire to do more than the bare minimum. Jack carried an unusually heavy academic load Relaxation, however, was a word not unknown to him; in his rare moments of free time he could be found reading Kierkegaard, listening to classical guitar, or holding his own on the squash courts. With his unfailing ambition and probing mind, there should be no bounds to Jack ' s achievements. DAVID WILLIAM PARSONS Dave arrived in Annapolis fresh from a successful high school career in North Carolina where he was a standout as a football player and student leader. Overcoming his initial awe of the Academy, Dave charged into life in Bancroft Hall with endless energy and enthusiasm. Whether bending his roomie ' s ears with his infamous trumpet playing or grinding out yards as a fullback on the 150 lb- football team, " The Twink " never did anything half- hearted. In the past year Dave has become quite a party man and his innocent humor has livened up many Saturday nights. With his ability to tackle any job successfully, Dave will become an out- standing Naval officer. THOMAS DOMINIC PASQUALE Tom reported to Canoe U. from Perkasie, Pennsylvania, only to find out that his charcoal curls and his picnic basket would not be tolerated His intense pursuit of an Aero major at Navy left little time for Tom to practice his soccer or guitar during the week, but always time on the weekends for a party with the fellas or an occasional trip home. His goodnatured personality coupled with common sense, lack of pettiness and a very mature and professional outlook to the future will inevitably lead Tom to a rewarding life in the Navy. THOMAS LANE PHILLIPS After a taste of military life at Augusta Military Academy, Virginia, where he graduated with honors, Tom came to the Academy full of enthusiasm and confidence. Hailing presently from Martinsville, Virginia, but having lived all over the South, Tom soon acquired the nickname " HAYSEED " from his class- mates. A stalwart participant in intramurals, Tom ' s never-say-die attitude had to be carried over into his academic work as well. Chief engineer of various nocturnal operations. Hayseed still has the Navy Department wondering how the original Tecumseh got out of Luce Hall and where the bowling ball that rolled through watch squad formation came from. Being well informed profes- sionally, Tom ' s enthusiasm and personality will place him high among his fellow officers. 380 ROSS RAYBURN Big Hoss came to USNA from a small town on the Texas Plains, Although he was never inclined towards the Navy, he picked up the routine very quickly. Perhaps one reason for this was the year he spent at New Mexico Military Institute before entering the Academy life. At the Academy, he spent three years on the football scrub team. But one could count on Hoss to chime in with a beautiful tune after practice. He has always been an easy going fellow who looked for ways to help his classmates I know that as time goes on Ross will be ready for the Navy. JAMES ANTHONY REAGHARD Hailing from Redlands, California, Jim arrived at Mother " B " on that memorable Wednesday morning with hopes of continuing a fine academic and athletic record in high school. Although he was never acclaimed a company slash he soon earned recognition as an Aerospace Engineering expert, even if his paper airplanes did frequently take nosedives. A great believer in competition sports, his continuing perseverance on the playing field finally earned him a position on the 150 lb. football team. Oftentimes Jim could be found in the pad, boosting the Catholic Choir or taking those illegal Wednesday night showers to lose weight. His personality and willingness to meet new faces will be a great asset to Jim ' s career in the Navy. JAMES ARMSTRONG REID Jim came to USNA from Boston Latin School and the Naval Reserve. Well prepared academically, he consistently was a mem- ber of the Superintendent ' s List and often wore stars. Born and raised next to the sea, he soon grew to love it and decided to make It his career. His familiarity with the water made him a member of the Plebe swimming team and the varsity Shields team. To prove his talents weren ' t limited to the sea, he won his jump wings as a Youngster. Jim ' s sense of humor and outgoing personality, as well as his academic and professional competence, should provide Navy Line with a fine officer and aid him in a successful career. WILLIAM WALTER ROGALSKI, JR. John Masefield responded to the lure of the sea with the famous lines, " I must go down to the sea again . . . " Bill Rogalski, born and raised within sight and sound of Long Island Sound, responded to that same lure by taking the oath of a midshipman. Turning down offers from several of the finest schools in the country. Bill, instead, came to Navy — a decision which the Navy will certainly not regret. The naval profession sorely needs men like Bill, a man with a curious mind and a truly refreshing personality who abhors the " ours is not to reason why " mentality so prevalent in, yet so detrimental to the naval service. DAVID OWEN ROSE As a Navy junior, Dave had no problem adjusting to the Annapolis way. Hailing from the bluegrass of Kentucky, he spent his last year of high school in D. C. where he was a standout athlete, scholar and musician. At the Academy he was no differ- ent. " Rosebuds " led the batt football team for two years and his prowess as a scholar was well known around the " Math barns. " Being a person of a many talents, he also played in and directed the NA-10 and Sundays found him lending his voice to the Chapel Choir. Dave is an enthusiastic, hardworking individual, who has a great deal to offer the Navy and his shipmates. JOHN ZIGMUNDSTEPIEN The butt of the company ' s Polish |okes, John came to USNA from St. Theresa High School in Detroit, prepared to do his best, come hell or high water. He soon discovered that the hell wasn ' t so bad, but the high water nearly finished him, as evidenced by his annual appearance on the swimming sub squad. Between his bat- tles with the Engineering and Navy Departments, " Zeke " found haven in the Bull Department, release on the athletic field and escape on the weekends. With the exception of dragging " Zeke " enjoyed nothing more than a hard game of lightweight football, the rougher the better. His fighting spirit should ensure him a successful career in the Navy. 381 22ND COMPANY SECOND CLASS Row 1; Healy, R. J.; Coleman, S. T.; Hollier, L. S.: Haring, P. A.; Newland, E. F.; O ' Neil, P.

TRoa From one June day to another but the four years between thenn saw the 36 plebes of " sweet sixteen " conquer the vagaries of Naval Academy life. During Plebe year we survived the dynamic duo of Murph? DT ' s as Youngsters we adopted a new mode of wearing apparel with one motto " Gimme some slack " . The Mod-Mid crew, late of company twenty-two continued in the forefront of military fashion when the Hungry Hounds were created on the slow pitch fields of Hospital Point. Those red and gray outfits were a sight to behold. When the clan reassembled from firstie cruise to enjoy the fruits of first class year they were ready. Goldie ' s Guys cruised through the year in front of the tube with nary a bruise.

Although he pursued academics with much vigor, Stan had his battles (and don ' t we alll with that hallowed department, but always managed to come out on the winning side. His victories carried over to Plebe crew, and then as he traded his oars for a rugby ball, his talents and stamina proved vital in the scrum and line-outs. A proud leader and firm organizer, Stan ' s confidence, hustle and drive will continue to serve himself and the Navy well. GEORGE EDWARD BIEDA George was living proof that good things come in small pack- ages. He was at the back of every formation, but he was always right up front when there was work to be done. George was probably one of the hardest working members of the class, com- piling an outstanding academic record, and yet well rounded enough to excel in athletics as a Brigade boxer, as well as the professional aspects of life at Navy. But George was never too busy to go out of his way to help a friend, not to mention the numerous fourth classmen whom he guided through the perils of Plebe year. His generous and hard-working attitude will make him a welcome addition to the fleet. JOHN CHARLES BOWEN Raised on the beach at Coronado. California John got quite a shock when he first encountered the not-so-beautiful climate of Annapolis. A year with Alpha Tau Omega at San Diego State had given him a sense of freedom that USNA could never quite control. Never one to let the books get the best of him, John liked to spend his time planning the coming weekend. Whether on the golf cour se with the varsity team or scratching the eight ball, he could always be counted upon to come up with an appropriate witticism. John is a man who will always be remembered for his happy-go-lucky personality and his readiness to help a classmate. CHARLES THOMAS BURBAGE Tom, being a Navy junior, has referred to a variety of places as home, but he came to us from McLean, Virginia. He quickly established his prowess on the gridiron, becoming a bulwark of the Big Blue ' s forward wall. Talented in many fields, Tom was active in class politics and in between visits to the weight room and lacrosse workouts he managed to pick up an exacting Aerospace major. The strong silent type, " Burb ' s " shy, quiet manner coupled with his subtle self-confidence will be as much an inspiration to his future commands as it has to his classmates. I i PATRICK FRANCIS CALLAN Pat came from Hampton, New Jersey ten days after graduating from North Hunterden Regional High School. Enjoying sports, " Trick " was found playing company soccer, basketball and soft- ball. The " Hungry Hounds " Softball team would not have been the same without his ability and quick wit. Working toward his Naval Architecture major Pat was on the Supt ' s and Dean ' s Lists nearly every semester. Being on the Plebe Detail, he was able to further develop his already high standards of leadership through actual experience. His high standards of conduct and self-discipline, his desire for a job well done and his superior ability will make Pat one of the Navy ' s finest officers. JOSEPH JACKSON FULBRIGHT, JR. Late in June 1965 there appeared, fresh from the hallowed halls of North Habersham High, deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia, one Jack Fulbright, Within 30 seconds " The Senator " began talking and he hasn ' t stopped since. His famous Southern drawl has been the life of many a party and bull session. While at USNA Jack sang in the choir and played company heavyweight football. In the fall and spring, Jack ' s natural love of marching drove him to be varsity tennis manager, thereby avoiding Worden Field, Often the Hall rang with his " Gimme a little slack! " A keen fusser, but a true friend, the Fleet will gam an outstanding officer in Jack Fulbright, 384 ii JOSEPH MICHAEL GREENE Joe came to USNA in his father ' s footsteps. Like his father Joe was born in Millville, New Jersey but he graduated from Mary Immaculate High School in Key West, Florida. Well-known for his quick wit and ready smile, Joe is a constant source of entertain- ment to his many friends. He has participated actively in company sports where his competitive spirit and will to win served as a motivating force for his teammates. We all feel confident that his winning smile, magnetic personality, and consideration for others will earn him many more friends in the future, where he will surely find a wealth of success and happiness. BENJAMIN HAROLD HICKS, JR. Although a true Southern Virginian from Petersburg, Benny found Annapolis to be close enough to the Chesapeake to be suitable. After a year at VMI with the class of 68, Benny decided that Army life was not his ticket and escaped, finding refuge at the " Country Club on the Bay. " Never one to let the books get him down, he turned his attention to more worthwhile things. After spending two years with the baseball team, he formed the now famous " Bitter-Ends " band, for which he played lead guitar. Benny will always be remembered for his colorful personality, one which will make friends for him wherever he may be. MICHAEL KENNETH HOLLIS After graduating from high school in Puerto Rico, Mike came to " Historic old Annapolis " to be promoted (?) from his Navy Junior status. Like most Plebes he didn ' t understand why sailors marched, but managed to make his way back to the water with Plebe crew. Pursuing interests in language and aviation, Mike majored in Spanish and minored in Aerospace, while keeping on the Superintendent ' s List. First Class cruise found Mike with the Spanish Navy as he was one of the fortunate few who participated in the Foreign Exchange Program. With his varied background, he is sure to prove a valuable asset to the Navy. NILE ROGERS KRAFT Nile graduated from Oilman High School, Oilman, Illinois in 1965 and during his senior year was also a member of the Naval Air Reserves. A month after graduation the boy " from down on the farm " reported to the Naval Academy and during the next four years, not only broadened his naval training and his sports horizons, but also his academic prowess. He was a member of the Scuba Club and the Public Relations Club, spending many Satur- day afternoons during the fall in the pressbox at Navy football games as a statistician to avoid march-ons. Upon graduation Nile will enter the fleet and become a very fine and capable officer. M JOSEPH STEWART MACDOUGALL Joe graduated from Collingdale High School, Pennsylvania in 1964 and attended Pennsylvania Military College for one year before reporting to USNA, along with two years Naval Reserve. During his four years on the Severn, Joe was active in Plebe lightweight crew, PRC, Scuba Club and company football and Softball. When not battling the Weapons Department, he could usually be found working out with his weights or on the Blue Trampoline. Although he is generally a quiet guy, " Mac " could always be counted upon to voice his opinions on any and all issues that would arise. When Joe joins the fleet in June of ' 69, the Navy will gain a leader and a fine officer. MICHAEL JOHN MALONE Mike came to the Academy from the booming, farming metro- polis of Currie, Minnesota Managing to somehow pluck the an- swers to all P-words from the air, he compiled an impressive academic record and also minored in Applied Science and Oceano- graphy. Mike was all academics and also won Ail-American status and collected a few tons of medals and trophies for his perfor- mance on the pistol team. Not stopping at this, he ventured forth as a relief pitcher for the " Hungry Hounds " , supplying a needed arm to the team. Known for his easy going nature and a constant equanimity of spirit, he has found many lasting friends at the Academy. 385 I! I y ; JACK " E " MARTIN Jack, known to his classmates as " E " . hails fronn the bustling metropolis of Circleville, Ohio. When he came to the Academy, the chief question in everyone ' s mind was " Could this simple country boy make it in the big time? " Time has proven the answer to be yes. Although he does not go in for the technical fields, he has received top grades in his class of Management minor. He was elected a class officer by his classmates, he has held a high position in the striper organization and has put out a great effort (as his often toothless state attests) on the intramural fields of fieldball and Softball. In spite of all this he has maintained a sort of rustic charm which will always bring him friends and success in the future. HAMILTON KEITH MAYNARD Keith, better known as " Nard " (among other things), came to the Academy from Wilhamsville High School up New York way. It did not take long until he was established as the company " brain- trust " and probably spent more hours doing other people ' s home- work than he did doing his own. Between phone calls to Baltimore and an unparalled propensity to find his name on watch bills, he still managed to fit in a chemistry major. That same enthusiasm he has exhibited on the intramural soccer fields coupled with his keen analytical mind will help Keith become a success in any field he finally chooses to enter. MALCOLM WALLACE McCLELLAN Mac came to USNA from sunny Orlando, F londa. Although his family moved to Tulsa during his second class year he remained closely attached to the Orlando area and its inhabitants and he was frequently known to make the long trip south on a long weekend. Mac ' s year at NAPS proved to be a fine preparation for the rigors of Plebe year as he sailed through with little or no trouble, and that trademark has typified him during his whole stay, to always get the job done without overworking himself. He made his presence felt in company sports, starting and starring for the volleyball team, the lightweight football team and the " Hungry Hounds. " His warm, friendly nature and desire to excel will make him an outstanding officer in his chosen field of Navy line. JOHN FRANCIS MULDERIG John, better known to his friends as " The Lion " , is a native of Marblehead, Massachusetts. A man of many talents, he spent many long hours behind the green fence with the varsity football team and on the company basketball courts. Never one to get too much of a good thing, the lion could usually be found spending his spare time in the rack, one reason why he never could quite get his stars for the Dean ' s List. His sense of humor and talent for making long lasting friendships should put him in good stead for a fine career in the Navy. JOHN MONAGHAN O ' BRIEIM Known to everyone as O.B., John is not unlike the leprechaun full of Irish wit and an occasional Irish temper to match. O B. hails from " High Above Cayuga ' s Waters " in Ithaca, (Mew York. While at USNA, John made his mark in all fields of endeavor. Carrying a heavy academic schedule asan Economic major, he was still able to actively participate in class affairs serving in the capacity of class treasurer for t hree terms. Athletically, John had a real " racquet " going for him in varsity tennis as he practically lived and breathed year-round. He consistently made the Supt ' s List with a sub-sub 3.0. As to the future, his jocular grin will always serve him well and guarantee him success in his career 386 1 CHARLES ROBINSON PORTER Robin came to the Academy after attending Duke University for two years. " Rocking Robin " , one of Navy ' s most popular disc )Ockeys on WRNV, Robin also took an active part in the Foreign Relations Club, Glee Club, Chapel Choir, French Club, Portuguese Club and the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference. In addition, participating in the intramural program and also on the varsity fencing team. Robin thoroughly enjoyed the academic program at Navy and even took courses on his own for which he received no credit. His willingness to do more than is required will ensure his success in his chosen field. BRIAN LEESPECHT Brian arrived at the Academy from NAPS in Bainbridge with almost three years of good solid experience as an enlisted man in the Navy. He tackled the Naval Academy program with the zeal of a " lifer. " But that wasn ' t the beginning or end of his well filled life here by any means. At the start of Youngster year he decided to take on the challenge of a major in Foreign Affairs. To put his newly acquired knowledge into action, he was an active partici- pant in the Foreign Relations Club and m NAFAC. His outgoing personality manifested itself in his work with the Public Relations Committee. Brian ' s well-rounded schedule of activities and achievements insures his valuable contribution to the Navy and success in his chosen field. BENJAMIN WALLACE TIPTON, III Ben came to us straight from the " Country Club Set " of Fort Worth, Texas. Graduating with honors from Paschal High, he came directly to Navy to find East Coast living somewhat different. While here he contributed his athletic ability to golf, batt football and company basketball. If Ben wasn ' t trying to find room for his civvies, he was always ready for a bull session, shooting some pool, or arranging weekend activities for his many friends. Ben ' s pleas- ant smile and easy-going nature, accompanied by his leadersnip qualities and the traits of an accomplished Southern gentleman are testimony enough to his future success. JAMES H.TULLEY, JR. Jim ' s confidence and enthusiasm proved to be a winning com- bination for him at the Academy. In all his undertakings, Jim always managed to rate a " good show " from all who observed him. Displaying great interest and pride in being in the Navy, he vigorously pursued professional undertakings and when his final midshipman cruise approached, Jim was one of the first to volun- teer for combat cruise in Viet-Nam. During the years at Navy, his artistic and organizational abilities proved invaluable. His ability to coordinate and organize, combined with his unassuming manner always totaled up to a thoroughly well done job. A strong man, who courageously stood by all his opinions, he did what he believed in. I GEORGE NICHOLAS TZAVARAS ' T-Z " was Fort Lee, New Jersey ' s USNA rep and has proved himself an outstanding leader in more ways than one. Academ- ically, George was consistently on the Superintendent ' s and Dean ' s Lists as he pursued his Mathematics major. Professionally, he was on the Plebe Detail second class summer and a striper first class year. George carried his prowess to the athletic field where his size and agility served him so well - possibly a trait from a Spartan ancestor. There was a light fun side to " T-Z ' s " character, too, A great fan of the " fair sex " , George loved a good time, fast cars and a swinging weekend. The fleet should look for great things from George ' s many talents and accomplishments and will undoubtedly find them. RICHARD ANDREW YOUNG Dick came to the Academy straight from Ravenna, Ohio where he was born. Although he had little trouble adjusting to Academy life, he did have one brief encounter with the Academic Board when his love of cards, T.V. and the green felt of the pool tables " slowed " his academic efforts. He quickly realized the gravity of the situation and pulled himself above water. Perhaps Dick ' s greatest asset is his good sense of humor, which he frequently had to call upon, because of his many nicknames. These were all in good fun though, and his good nature has earned him many friends. These attributes combined with his sincerity and his concern for others, will make him an outstanding leader. 387 23RD COMPANY SECOND CLASS Row 1: Golez, J. R. S.; Otterbein, T.

Moore. After spending three relatively uneventful years here, we sure made up for it this year. Two weeks after returning from summer leave, some of the guys had a party. 2808 manmusters later we were out again, each of 120 demerits the wiser. After that we began the year long battle with a tiger — a dying relic of a bygone era. But things weren ' t as bad as they seemed. We were fortunate enough to have a company officer who was a reasonable man, to whom we could take any problem (if we could get into his office between 2 c). Captain Sims let us run the show and backed us up 120%. Gifted with the ability to discover " leadership-in-the-rough " , and never one to raise his voice in anger, he guided us through 1 c year with his fine personal example and perfect military terminology. We ' ll never forget you Captain. You can bet on that. f U SPRING SET: CO. CDR: E. R. Langston; SUB CDR: W. H Newton; CPO: W. H. Steiglitz. 23rd COMPANY OFFICER CAPT J. M.Sims, USMC PAUL ALLEN ALFIERI " Alf " , hailing from sunny Tampa, Florida, had no trouble adjusting to life at Navy - except for the Northern winters. For him, snow was an interesting phenomena, but like the rest of us, he quickly tired of it. Paul played both Plebe and 150 football until a wrist injury brought an untimely end to his football (and marchingi career at Navy. But the Lord works in strange ways, and he continued to excel in sports when a squash racquet somehow sprouted from his cast. Alf had no trouble with academics but a conspiracy by the P. T. Department constantly kept him off the Supt ' s List. Paul ' s fine attitude towards the Naval Service will help him in the Fleet. DOUGLAS PIERCE AYERS Doug came to the land of pleasant living from New Castle, Pennsylvania. Possessing basically a small town background, he had a little difficulty in adjusting to our modern, complex Navy In fact. Doug developed such a strong feeling for pro-training that he developed an acute case of appendicitis during 3 c Summer to miss a few days of cruise. The Academic Department has certainly felt the effects of Doug ' s many extracurricular activities — in fact, he has received several personally signed letters of condemnation from the Admiral. The afternoons could usually find Doug playing sailor with the Navy ' s bathtub fleet, dreaming of civilian line, or in the grip of the pad monster imprisoned at slope zero. FRANK OLIVER BARRETT, III Frank came to the Academy from a Navy background and proceeded to do some amazing things. He wrote a computer program that would do his grease for him. One day while experi- menting with weapons from the 7th Wing he was observed by the O.O.D. who insured that Frank was amply rewarded for his " homework. " Frank could always be depended upon to help out when the homework seemed like " magic " and more often than not he proved that the magic was actually the intuitively obvious after all. A quick wit and personal charm will win this man many friends and aid his future . . . whatever and wherever it may be. JOHN XAVIER CARRIER, II John came to scenic historic Annapolis after living in Germany, Japan, Virginia and just about anyplace else you can think of. As a result, John became the company connoisseur concerning the finer things in life such as Ferraris, Masserattis and Seagram ' s crown royal. John never had much trouble with academics. While putting in his two hours of study for every hour of class, he managed to keep his grades bubbling under the Supt ' s list. John excelledin sports on the company level, adding much spirit to the company volleyball, Softball, and touch football teams. John could always be recognized a mile away because of his regulation " Recon " haircut. d KEVIN PATRICK CONNORS Kevin Connors, a hearty draft of Irish brew, while not always considered officer timber, quickly removed all doubt when he threw his hat into the ring of dynamic devil-doers. A Harvard Intellect , biting wit and bevy of cogent-minded associates brought to the Naval Academy new frontiers of human derring-do. A close association with executive circles and local authorities enabled this pioneer of thought and deed to wrest from the ivy-clad tradi- tionalists unequaled heights of personal discipline. Often a dark horse in the academic campaign, he time and time again left professor and peer alike breathless in amazement at his wizardry in the world of arts and letters. CLIFFORD LEE DEETS " Deeter " came to us from sunny California where he attended San Diego State College. While here, he tried his hand at almost every intramural sport. However, he finally chose soccer and with his skill and ability, helped the team to finish well in the winning column; even so we will always remember his winning touchdown. Among his dislikes are the Maryland weather and playing cribbage with his roommate. After a poor academic Plebe year, he really bore down and hit the books and was well known for having more weekends than the firsties. 390 JOHN EDWIN DONOVAN John came to Navy from Cleveland, Ohio which really isn ' t that great a feat, and is only worth mentioning because there was a president named Cleveland. After spending a year at Marquette University in the NROTC, he saw the light (?l and switched to USNA. Dons was no stranger to the Supt ' s List but, then, his never was much more than a passing acquaintance. His sense of humor and his ability to see the brighter side of a bad situation have made four years pass a lot faster for all of us. John will certainly make a valuable addition to the Naval Service. DAVID ARTHUR EHEMANN Coming from the Pennsylvania Pretzel country, Dave finally made it to USNA via Millersville State College and NAPS. The upperclass were quick to recognize Dave ' s potential, but the Aca- demic Departments were a bit more skeptical and Plebe year signalled the beginning of a 4 year running battle. Grampa Dave always managed to stay on the safe side of 2.0, though, and he found time to sing with the Chapel Choir and tour with the Glee Club. His fall weekends were usually spent " practicing with the guns " as a member of the Cannoneers. A confirmed Navy Line man, Dave will make a fine contribution to that exclusive group of wooden men and iron ships. GARY CARL GOODMUNDSON Goody came to the Severn from Wayzata, Minnesota after a year of the good life at the University of Minnesota. Reducing to the rigors of Plebe year, Gary had no trouble with academics and found himself on the Supt ' s List more than once. Perhaps he is best knwon as a former member of the death valley ski team but more recently as a permanent fixture on the radiator squad. His first love is photography and it rightfully helped to earn him the position of Editor-in-Chief of this LUCKY BAG, which kept him more than busy for two years. His ability to do the job well and get along with and be liked by everyone will ensure success in all of his future endeavors. SIMEON GUYHIGGINS Guy came to the Academy directly from high school and immediately began the process of educating himself as a future Naval Officer. Undaunted by setbacks during Plebe year, he applied himself all the harder and carried his QPR over the magic 3.00 for the rest of his stay. His enthusiasm could be felt far from the classroom as well, on fields at Hospital Point and Farragut where he consistently turned out to support company athletics. Always one to come up with help for any or all who needed it, Guy will never be forgotten for his good nature and devotion to excellence. « GERALD WILLIAM JENKINS Jenks opted for Canoe U. straight from high school fighting off offers from the other Academies and many universities. Quickly establishing a reputation as the best crammer in Mother B, he managed to maintain himself on Supt ' s List by studying only on odd-numbered alternate Tuesday, leaving his remaining time to con- centrate on more important things, such as sleep, company sports and girls. A believer in leadership by example, Wondy was always distinguished by his healthy appearance and his expertly kept hair. With his keen mind, professional motivation and cheerful help- fulness, Jerry will be a resounding success in whatever field he chooses to follow. FRANKLIN J. JENSEN, JR. An Eskimo by association, liberal by persuasion and hedonist by inclination, this rock glacier of a man captured our feelings with the chill and climax of his actions. Frank was an adventurous, dynamic individualist, who never let his energy be snapped by the dullards who trailed in his wake of accomplishment. A once introspective dream merchant, he awakened to loosen our minds with thought and free our senses to the heady aroma of life- Tongues wagged and the corks of life were popped as his classy style tempered our dull lives with a gusto for which we are all better men. EDWARD RAY LANGSTON, JR. The " Boot " came to the Academy from England, France, Puerto Rico, Pensacola and Annapolis among other places. Known for pulling it out on finals and excelling on the intramural athletic field during the week, he disappeared on weekends to a certain house in Eastport to partake in the finer things of life. The evenings would find him studying the cribbage board and sports page where he avidly followed those perennial losing teams, the Redskins and Senators. Ed ' s great desire and ability will surely make him a fine husband and " wife " to that one lucky girl and perhaps even to the Navy. BARRY JAMES MATHIS Barry came to the Academy from sunny Palo Alto, and immediately established himself as the ideal midshipman. From the beginning, Barry excelled in soccer and track. As for aca- demics, he never had trouble, because he always managed to find time out from his model building to get on the Dean ' s or Supt ' s List. His enthusiastic attitude and helpful ways have made him well known throughout the class. Barry ' s great personality and gleaming smile coupled with his determination and perseverance will guarantee him success in whatever career he chooses upon graduation. ROBERT DAVID MOORE Bob-o, who hails from Arbutus, Maryland came to Navy from Western Maryland College, Besides the many hours he spent work- ing on his Nav-Ops major, he found time to work on the Lucky Bag staff and keep his figure with the Sailing Squadron, Bob is a happy-go-lucky guy who didn ' t really care too much for the system, as was evidenced by his exponential accumulation of demerits, A computer whiz, he devised programs to do just about anything, from grease to the sale of oranges in Florida, Engaged in a perpetual war against " beepers " . Bob could always be seen pinging to class, A great individual with a lot of ability, Bob will definitely be a great addition to whatever branch he chooses. TERRY ALLEN MOORE Terry came to the Academy from Fort Worth, Texas as a very capable high school athlete, student and leader. He participated in Plebe football and did very well until injuries began to plague him. He never quite reached his entire potential here at the Academy but his capabilities and his desire are so dynamic are that he will never fail to succeed. He has an enthusiasm and an interest and a tremendous feeling for what the good things in life really are. The world still has a lot to expect from Terry and Terry has a lot left to give, 392 .1 WAYNE THOMAS MOORE Wino came to Navy via Badger High School in Lake Geneva. Wisconsin, Besides working many long hours on his Aero major, Wayne found time to wrestle on the Plebe team as well as partici- pate in company sports. His size is more than compensated for by his wit, which usually comes at unappropriate times. Wayne is a big-hearted individual who thought that every girl should have a chance to date a midshipman, and he is about the only midship man who consistently lost the war with the laundry. Wayne by his determination and hard work will benefit any branch of the service that will take him. DAVID ALFRED NEALE Dave, a native of Olympia (it ' s the water), Washington, brought to the Academy a refreshing combination of the honest and unpredictable. A hard worker with a keen mind is but half a definition. It must be remembered that pinochle usually took precedence over studying, and the pad, over all. Being at odds with Jacob Reed and the Boys, Neale-Cheese was quick to acquire a penchant for the " free clothes " bit, and it wasn ' t long before his civvies took up most of his locker. As the Academy has left its mark on him, Dave is sure to make a favorable impression on the Navy, where his initiative, quick smile, and easy going personality will serve him always. WILLIAM HENRY NEWTON, III Bill came to the Academy an excellent athlete and honor student from Midland, Texas. Though the Academy ' s standards were high. Bill ' s standards were even higher. During the years at the Academy, Bill not only formed his own life, but by his very nature helped form the lives of those around him. Bill ' s hard work brought him a lot, places on the football and baseball teams, class president and others; but Bill ' s greatest honor was the respect he commanded from everyone around him. Bill ' s competence and unswerving devotion to what he believes in will make him a success m everything he endeavors to do. EDWARD JOSEPH O ' NEIL Turning down an offer from West Point because he had more of a party school in mind, Ed came to Navy from Braintree, Massachusetts. He never had any real trouble with academics, making both the Dean ' s List and Supt ' s List. Eddie spent most of his leisure time either keeping dust off his eyeballs or out on the athletic fields in an impromptu football game. Second class year, Ed overloaded, taking leader ship III under the expert guidance of his squad leaders. Ed ' s professional attitude and love of the sea coupled with a great sense of humor will make him a welcome addition to any wardroom. CHARLES JAMES O ' NEILL, JR. Charlie came to the Academy from Washington, D. C. He brought with him a light, cheerful nature and an intense interest in music. To those who did not know him, Charlie was the man behind the organ putting out the best sounds ever heard at Navy. To his closest friends he was the guy you could always count on for a coming P-work, or a clutch play for the company teams, help with homework, a recording tip and gouge for anything. The future can only bring the best to Charlie the man who gave Navy soul. THOMAS JAMES PITMAN Tom gave up college in the mid-west to spend four years at Navy. He has spent his time sampling assorted sports and activities, but has remained loyal to the old favorites of sleeping and day- dreaming of life following our graduation. He never did become an academic star. Unsure of what he wanted to do or where he wanted to go in the service, his heart always longed for the days when he could return to the Ohio countryside around Wooster, the biggest little town in the world. A nature lover, Tom always appreciated even the smallest amount of time on a lonely beach or in a beautiful green forest. 393 MICHAEL RUSSELL SALEWSKE Mike came to the Naval Academy straight from high school in Waukesha. Wisconsin. Although studying for his Applied Science major took a good deal of his time, Mike found time for D B, Lucky Bag staff, company sports and an occasional appearance on the Supt ' s List. He is his own man, makes up his own mind, shows great determination in his goals and opinions and loyalty to his friends. Mike ' s realism sometimes leads to pessimism and cynicism because he is his own strictest judge. He stands on his own merits and does not ask or need more ROBERT THOMAS SCHRAM Tom came to Navy from Peru, Indiana via Bullis Prep. An accomplished swimmer, he had no difficulty with our rigorous P. T- program but directed his athletic endeavors to the intramural fields where he added much to the company ' s football and Softball teams. Tom ' s interest in finance is known throughout the Brigade and he will probably be the first to mount his ticker-tape to a golf cart. Tom will be remembered for his close link to the outside world. His perseverance and enthusiasm will make Tom a success in whatever he does. i KENNETH WILLIAM SELTMANN Ken came to Chesapeake University from Passaic, New Jersey. His strong personality and unique way with people quickly won him many friends. He so distinguished himself in Plebe academics, that he was interviewed by the Admiral as a candidate for civilian line, but Kenny, with his keen mind, knew a good thing when he saw It and fought his way back. He soon reached an understanding with the Academic Department - but P. T. still seemed to confuse him, for he swam like a cheetah and ran like a fish. Ken ' s determination and strength of character will be an asset to him and the Navy regardless of his service selection. WILLIAM HENRY STIEGLITZ Wild Bill or " Glitz " , as he is affectionately called, came to Navy from Mayfield High School in Cleveland, Ohio. Bill could always be found running around, on the Reef Points staff, or at some German Club function. Being a lover of the humanities. Bill was always on the Supt ' s or Dean ' s Lists, although he found the nuts and bolts courses rather unstimulating. In spite of all his activities, he found many a quiet hour to contemplate the insides of his eyelids. His determination and unlimited ability, as well as his great sense of humor will always be an asset to him in whatever he endeavors to do. STEVEN GARLAND TINSLEY Steve came to the Academy after graduating from high school in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. A hard guy to miss in a crowd, Steve is one of the few genuinely great guys around. He is always ready with his warm smile and his friendly grin. Steve would attribute his |oy to his personal faith in Jesus Christ. His ardent love for the out of doors was shown by his participation in crew while at the Academy, as well as such personal interests as camping and swim- ming. Steve IS sure to be happy and successful in whatever he does after graduation, and will be a real credit to the Academy. HAROLD ALDRICH WILLIAMS A Navy Junior, HAW came to the Severn from the hills of Nevada. Quickly adjusting to the rigors of Academy life, Hal kept the pursuit of excellence foremost in his mind and astounded everyone with his academic achievement, never failing to refute all rumors of hidden intellect. Recognizable by his golden tan, dis- tinctive walk and ever present coca-cola, he was always ready to help a friend in need. An aspiring track star and a cowboy at heart, Hal appeased his western instincts by joining the cannoneers. His modest engaging manner and sharp analytic mind will lead to success in whatever field he chooses to follow. 394 24th Company FALL SET: CDR: J. H. Miller; SUB-CDR: T. F. Sauntry; CPO J. H. Huff, III. WINTER SET: CO. CDR: J. P. Collins; SUB-CDR: E. L. Duckworth; CPO: W. D. Coleman, Jr. Lieutenant Sargent is not a new rank nor an old one, but the 24th Company Officer. Strict military discipline is not his forte, as an astute observor might conclude after seeing his pride and joy in action. Due to our Lieutenant ' s " inadequacy " , as some outsiders may term it, the 24th functions well, has fun, and looks forward to coming in contact with the U. S. Navy after graduation. However, the 24th is not without its essential military qualities. This fine marching machine repeatedly ranks high, exceptionally high, in p-rade after p-rade. It has often been said that this is a non-sweat company; however, this is an ugly rumor and totally untrue. 24 sweats as any normal group of men — whenever it gets hot. 24th company ' s sports teams are noted for how they play the game. Winnings certainly not everything, but its nice and once in awhile 24 comes out on top like it did in company competition for the 4th Batt. One area in which 24 is particularly outstanding, favorably outstanding, is academics. All in all, no matter which way you look at it, 24 stands out. SPRING SET: CO. CDR: J. H. Miller; SUB-CDR: E. L.

I KEITH JEROME ARNESOIM Keith came to the Naval Academy less than a month after graduating from high school in Austin, Minnesota. After a slow start in his academics Plebe year, he made raising his QPR and class standing one of his goals. While doing that he managed to get on both the Supfs and Dean ' s Lists several times. His varied interests led him to minors in Foreign Affairs and German. Although known more for his desire to play than his playing ability, Keith was on battalion and company sports teams for fencing, fieldball, rugby, and basketball. His abilities and desire to excel should carry him far in any field he enters. JOSEPH CLENT BOUDREAUX, III " Boods " hails from Cajwn County, Sulfur, Louisiana with several stops in between ranging from Guantanamo Bay to Severna Park before arriving at USNA. During Plebe year Joe decided to become one of Navy ' s finest fencers leaving behind five years of almost undefeated high school and junior college wrestling. Never one to let academics stand in the way of a good time or even a good snooze, Joe had no trouble keeping a respectable average. Most of his free time was spent with an informal intellectual group known as the " Ghetto. " If the Navy is able to harness Joe ' s desire to succeed along with his vibrant personality they may well have one of their finest officers. THOMAS FREDERICK CLEVERDON ' The House " , as he v . ' as known on the gridiron, came to Navy from Glenbard West High in Illinois. A man of diverse talents and abilities, Tom lettered in Brigade boxing and football as well as making the Supt ' s List. " House " was noted around campus for his cool, unaffected manner with the opposite sex, his winning personality and his " you gotta love it " theory of life. In addition to his athletic and academic pursuits, Tom also spent much time in philosophical discussions with an informal intellectual group known as the " Ghetto. " With his friendly manner, and his desire to win he will be a valuable asset to the Navy and an influence upon all with whom he serves. WALTER DAN COLEMAN, JR. Dan Coleman meant skiing, the ' pad " , old dog tram and an easy smile. It meant staring out the window, the Rolling Stones, term papers on the Crimean War and nine years of military school. Dan didn ' t exactly meet his challenges head on, he sailed around them. His finest hours were in his Flying Dutchman which was to him as the whaled was to Ahab. Who else would substitute white socks for missing gloves? What other future ace pilot would taxi his plane into a runway sign? Dan Coleman meant blind dates, snake ties, and desert boots. Dan Coleman meant that sometimes even in Annapolis, individuality is indestructible. JOHN PATRICK COLLINS As a man big in stature and heart, John was always a person you could talk to. Never too busy for anyone or anything he left a lot of people wondering how they too could pull " stars " without opening a book. " J. P. " often talked of his love for boats and girls, in particular the long slender variety found way over at Hubbard Hall or D. C. Being a letterman, he conscientiously devoted much of his time on the Severn perfecting a good tan for those Supt ' s List weekends. Speaking of social life, from his initial " tea fight " success throughout his upper class years John was always one up on the group. It is not at all fitting to end his profile here, because the success of John ' s Life has just begun. FREDERICK THOMAS CUMMINGER Upon graduation from McMahon High in his native Norwalk, Fred attended Columbian Prep to better prepare for the rigorous schedule to follow. He maintained his athletic prowess by be- coming a member of the Plebe football team, but was forced to give the sport up in order to devote more time to his studies. Although he has had his share of troubles with academics, the determination with which he faced these obstacles is indicative of his character. More often than not, he spent Saturday night with the books in his room rather than with the boys on liberty. Fred ' s easy-going manner coupled with his remarkable self discipline will always be a credit both to himself and the Naval Service. ROBERT FRANCIS CUNLIFFE Rob came to Navy in the summer of ' 65 with high hopes of a life of fun, girls and sports. However, the first two he had to patiently wait a year for mu ch to his dismay, but the latter he quickly found in the form of gymnastics Contrary to Navy tradition, Rob ' s first love was the trampoline in Macdonough Hall, rather than the blue one in his room. It was, however, second on his table of priorities, with studies a far third. And if you ' re ever in the snow country of the northeast you ' ll probably find him dodging trees. As for the future, he has always had high aspirations and hopes that someday soon they will be fulfilled. They will be! I EDDIE LEE DUCKWORTH From the minute he stepped into Bancroft Hall until long after his naval career is ended, Lee will be remembered by all for his warm and friendly manner. Never one to pass up a challenge, Lee left the wilds of Nebraska to begin his career at Navy. Turning down the chance to further excel in track and cross country, " Ducky " branched out and lent his invaluable support to the lacrosse and company soccer teams. Although his room was invari- ably bristling from activity, whether it be for academic help, or a classmate needing a haircut, Lee always managed good grades. Anyone who has associated with Lee knows that his future in the Navy will indeed be a bright one. GEORGE ROSS DUNHAM A farm boy at heart who arrived at USNA in the summer of ' 65 from the village of Schaghticoke, New York is a fond animal lover, especially horses. This would definitely explain Ross ' desire to understand others in a much deeper sense than is common in this day and age. As for sports, one could always find Ross working hard to achieve his own set goals running cross country and track. Away from the Academy, he was not an uncommon sight to the skiing slopes of New England. His resourceful manner and amiable personality will undoubtedly assure him of a happy life and a successful career. " Win without boasting, lose without excuse " - an asset which Ross possesses and will carry him far. i THOMAS HAROLD ETTER Tom, who is better known as " Ets " or " The Old Man of the Sea, " came to the Academy by way of Columbian Prep and Moravian College. He hails from Quakertown, Pennsylvania and is always ready to argue to merits of Dutch food and professional football. He was active in the Scuba Club, company fieldball and " B " Softball and varsity wrestling. Because of unfortunate injuries, he was unable to participate in more varsity sports. Despite his tremendous inability to spell anything in the English language, he always maintained a respectable academic average. However, his greatest talent was as the chief " vat " mixer and specialized in Beat Army celebrations. He will go far in the naval service due to his winning smile and congenial personality. LARRY WAYNE FALLS " Yrral Sllaf " came to Navy from North Carolina ' s Fred T. Foard High School Lar ' s enthusiasm and determination was first realized on the athletic fields where he was a halfback for the varsity football team as well as a stalwart on both company fieldball and Softball teams. An advocate of at least two or three girls in every port " Sliaf " could be found in his leisure moments pursuing his first love, the opposite sex. While academics were never of prime concern. Much of his free time was taken up in philosophicaldiscussions with an informal intellectual group known as the " Ghetto " . Always ready to help a friend, Lar ' s warm and friendly nature will assure him of success in the future. 398 DANNY LOUIS GEORGE Dan came to the Academy from San Luis Obispo, California after serving three years in the Navy, where he developed the pride and devotion to duty which have been an inspiring example to those who have known him. He has participated actively in com- pany fieldball and battalion YP ' s where his competitive spirit and will to win served as a motivating force for his team and ship- mates. What impresses people about Dan are his high standards and goals, his strong determination and more important, his ability to succeed. HAROLD STROUD HICKS, JR. Harold arrived at USNA by way of the Hotchkiss School. LSU and Louisana Tech. " Harry " , an Air Force brat, has done much traveling but likes to call Louisiana his home. Harold had a hard time adjusting to USNA academics, however, after a rough first semester, things began to come easy to this easygoing midshipman. Harold was a member of the Scuba Club and NAFAC and partici- pated in many company and batt sports which would leave him the most time to pursue his favorite pastime - " the pad " . " Harry " IS best known for his unique ability to always get the job done and have a good time while doing it. JAMES HOWARD HUFF " Chipmunk " came to Navy from Cross Keys High School in Atlanta after a year of NROTC at Auburn University. It first appeared that he was studying in pre-med. The " Munk " spent two tours in Navy hospitals due to injuries sustained in varsity gym on the trampoline. After retiring from the trampoline in the gym he concentrated his efforts on the blue one in his room. After validating Plebe year, Huffer settled down to the long, hard grind between weekends. Most of his free time was spent in philo- sophical discussions with an informal, in tellectual group known as the " Ghetto. " Jim was well known around campus for his good nature and easy going style. His ability to win friends will ensure success in his career. ROYAL DUBOSE JOSLIN With a name — like Royal Dubose Joslin you ' ve got to be different and Duty was! A tanned face, a blonde mop of hair in perpetual motion, " Jos " never stopped doing something. A Navy Junior he traveled a lot, a tradition he kept up as a varsity sailor. Stars were no stranger to this day student. He was at home in NAVOPS as on the touch football field or in a Flying Dutchman. Not everybody thinks it ' s economical to fly to California, or necessary to dump a waste can full of water on a Firstie ' s new convertible or logical to import a drag from California so she can see him between restriction musters. Nobody except " Dub " Joslin, that is. THOMAS EDWARD KLOCEK Tom, known as " Klos " among his friends, came to the Naval Academy after a year and a half at Queens College in Queens, New York. During the winter months, he could be found either playing company heavyweight football or battalion handball. But in the fall and spring Tom, a member of the Naval Reserve before coming to Navy, could be found on the Chesapeake Bay as a member of the YP Squadron. He has held various positions in the YP Squad- ron including officer-in-charge of his battalion YP as a segundo. His ready humor and lively spirit as well as his love for the sea and the " finer " things of life will aid Tom to succeess in his chosen profession of Navy Line. JAMES KRAS " Krasher " , as he is known to all of his freinds, hails from New Britain, Connecticut. Before coming to Annapolis, hie spent a year at Columbian Prep where he starred at halfback for the football team. A knee operation kept him from playing varsity ball so he devoted his energies to the company football and Softball teams. Although Jim managed to appear on the Supt ' s List many times while working towards a demanding Math major, he was never one to p s up a card game. He was always willing to help anyone and no conversation was dull with " the life of the party " The out- standing qualities that have made Jim a success at the Academy assure him a successful career upon joining the fleet. 399 NEIL GORDON MATHISON Neil, hailing from Seattle, Washington, is prepared to expound on the merits of God ' s country at the drop of a hat. While his time was liberally taken up by obtaining a major in Foreign Affairs, sailing flying Dutchmen, being active in the Foreign Relations Club, NAFAC, CONTAC, being organizations editor of the Lucky Bag and being an active participant in civic problems of Annapolis he has managed to make Dean ' s List, dragevery weekend, beat the system and at all times question what others follow blindly. Being such an individual Neil will either make it BIG or never be heard of again. Suffice it to say — Beware fleet, here comes " Mat. " i DAVID L. McLINTOCK Entering June 30th was David L. McLintock, mild mannered midshipman. Exiting four years later, a man with active interests ranging from fast women to faster cars. Always blessed with a technical touch, Dave could usually be found shorting out his stereo or dropping his transmission on Cooper Road. Although seldom bothering to draw half his textbooks, Dave proved a little study and a lot of sleep were enough to capture those extra Supt ' s List weekends. " Mac " always said there was nothing like having a girl rub your back and although he was often " S. I. R. " for fouled up radar gear he never complained of a bad back. Dave should truly go farther in life than any of us. WILLIAM STUART McMURRY A product of Xavier High School in New York, Bill came to the Academy with a taste of military life, which soon became evident in his leadership abilities and academic prowess. Bill has been a hard worker in all of his endeavors and has also displayed his determination and sense of good play on the company light- weight football team. Bill ' s persistent efforts paid off as he was a continual member of the Supt ' s List. His energetic personality and helping hand to others in academic pursuits is long to be remem- bered by many of his classmates. Bill ' s friendly attitude and mannerisms have also added considerably to his overall like- ableness and he is sure to be a fine asset to the fleet. JOHN H. MILLER John came to the Academy after spending a year at Marin Junior College where he forsook the gay, carefree atmosphere of college life for the more spartan environment of the Academy. John devoted most of his athletic time to intramural athletics being on the Brigade Champion football team, battalion track and Brigade boxing where he was runner-up in the Brigade boxing finals one year and won his varsity " N " the next year. John managed to keep his grades above average but not without many lost liberty hours. John is best characterized by his good nature and sincere interest in the people around him. This, combined with hard work will lead him to a successful career in the Navy, CHARLES EDWARD PEHL After a brief interlude at the University of Texas, Charlie found himself at the Academy. It was soon apparent that aca- demics was not his strongest " forte " so Youngster year found him happily shoveling in the Bull Department. When it came to athlet- ics, Charlie was a real enthusiast. In the afternoons he could be found leading the company soccer team or lifting weights. Charlie will best be remembered though, for the courage of his convictions and a willingness to help the not so fortunate. He was always giving of himself to other midshipmen, the underprivileged of Annapolis and was a Big Brother. He made the time and effort while others made excuses. The Fleet will be better when it receives this man from Texas. 400 JOHN KALMAN PELL " J, K. " was a true man of the West. With his black hair and rangy build, he looked more at home in a saddle than on the bridge of a YP and, when he strummed his guitar and sang " Blood in the Saddle " , one could almost hear the coyotes howling over the hills. Even under pressure from the system, those traditional western virtues of individuality, competiveness and sincerity characterized everything John did. His grades were always a little higher, his drags a little cuter, his athletics a little quicker, and his " Dear Johns " a little more spectacular than those around him. " J. K " always met the challenge academically, athletically and socially. In June 1965, Genesee, Idaho, population 200 persons, sent her finest to Annapolis. RICHARD PRESTON RED A 1962 graduate of Lake Charles High in Lafayette, Louisana, Richard traded in his Marine uniform after one year of service to attend the Academy. R. P. is probably best known for his easy- going man ner, excellent sense of humor, and ability to get along with anyone. Richard could always be found during study hour either in someone else ' s room, or at the phones getting a date for Saturday night. An excellent tackle on the varsity football team for three years, Richard still found time to play cards and work word puzzles, but never failed to hit the books when necessary. A true gentleman, and lady ' s man, Richard ' s personality and abilities should make him a certain success. », BERNARD URBAN RITZERT, JR. Coming to us by way of Archbishop Curley High School in Baltimore, Bernie arrived at Canoe U. confident in his fine abili- ties. A valuable player on the batt football, rugby and company fieldball teams, Bernie also had little trouble making Supt ' s List. Never one to spend his weekends in the hall studying, he soon made many close friends and was " discovered " to be a natural comedian at parties; his interests ranging from Corvettes to the fair sex. With his devotion to duty, loyalty, and good humor Bernie will certainly be a credit to the Service and a friend to those fortunate enough to serve with him. THOMAS FREDRICK SAUNTRY " One hundred and twenty-five pounds of twisted steel and sex appeal " is a phrase that would be familiar to anyone who knew Tom Plebe year. ' Saunts ' comes from Hudson, Wisconsin, from which he brought his many assorted academic and athletic skills to the Academy. Tom proved his athletic abilities both as a Brigade boxer for four years and as an ace pitcher for the company Softball team. As a student, he also has excelled, wearing " stars " plebe year, however, by second class year, tired of the Academic glory, he devoted much of his time to social hobbies. Always the life of the parties in Philadelphia, especially Youngster year, he never passed up an opportunity for a good time. THOMAS HARRIS VANBRUNT Van came to the Academy from Jacksonville, Florida. Tom straightened out his Congressman and soon found himself fighting Plebe academics, pneumonia and the Man from Baton Rouge, who struck fear in the hearts of many. Luckily Tom came up Sat dead week of Plebe year and through diligent application was on or near Supt ' s List from then on. Tom could usually be found during the afternoon at the handball courts, wheezing his way to victory or in his room fighting the pad monster. Tom ' s loyalty to friends, his willingness to lend a hand and his drive to get the job done will make him a great asset to the Fleet. MICHAEL JAMES WATSON Mike, better known as " Doc " , came to Navy from Sonoma, California via anything but the direct route. Mike joined the Navy as an enlisted man after a year went to NAPS becoming a member of the vanishing breed of NAPSTERS. Although academics never came easy for Mike, he still found time to spin discs for WRNV and drive boats on the Chesapeake as a member of the YP Squadron, Mike has held various positions in the YP Squadron, including Squadron Engineering Officer, which will stand him in good stead for a career in Navy Line. Mike has also played batt handball and Plebe squash and won a sweater Plebe Summer in a squash tournament. 401 LL SET: BATT-CDR: C T. Creekman, Jr.; SUB-CDR: R D. Garner; Vlcllvaine.

The driving fancer were the succession to power of the new first class, an influx of athletic prowess from the 19th Company second class, and not least, the new liberality of Lieutenant Glasier, predicated, no doubt, on the departure of the 5th Battalion Officer. Being given a freer hand in company policy, we responded by winning the fall p-rade competition, finishing second in sports, and leading in color competition at the end of the semester. Humor was another key word this year. No one will forget Dirty Al chasing a baseball off the seawall. Hardy dropping his sword at the first p-rade, or Ward stepping into a six-foot deep mud puddle. Company tastes in cars ran from Corvettes to Dave Russell ' s Volkswagen Camper. Grey Hansen liked 1st Class cruise so much he decided to go again after graduation. SPRING SET: CO. CDR; E. E. Matchette; SUB-CDR A. J Galus, JR.; CPO: A. A. Turner. 25th COMPANY OFFICER LT P. K. Glasier, USN GUY HAROLD ABLE, III Coming from a military family, and a son of the " Stars and Bars, " Guy left fiis land-locked fiome in West Columbia, South Carolina to join the Blue and Gold. Somewhat of a wire-walker, Guy had his bouts with the Academic Department but always emerged bright eyed, confident and unscathed. A vicious com- petitor in pistol, as well as softball, football and trampoline (blue, that is). Guy has always been ambitious and competent in all facets of midshipman life, including extracurricular activities, where his help in the Photo Club and in certain " non-Navy " activities is renowned. With his wit and cool-headedness as an asset, we can be sure that an exciting and rewarding career will be BRADLEY STUART BEALL Arriving from Scarsdale, New York, full of the tales spun by his brother, himself an Academy graduate. Brad discovered the life of a midshipman first hand. From the beginning. Brad had one thing going for him - tennis. He served Navy well as a Plebe playing both Plebe tennis and squash, playing varsity tennis in the years following. Through his determination to overcome Science and Engineering courses in favor of his chosen field, economics, his grades have improved steadily, placing him in the Supt ' s List category. Always with a good word for anyone he meets, Brad gets along well with all. His congeniality and dedication should make him a success wherever his steps may take him in the future. ROBERT DONALD BLAKELY Blake ' s came to the Academy from Northwestern Prep School in his hometown, St. Paul. A true Minnesotan, Bob is an avid outdoorsman. Leave time usually finds him on one of his states famous lakes, slaloming on water skis or breaking speed records on his snowmobile. Sports are his first love, but his inquisitive nature gives him a variety of interests as broad as his range at short stop. Despite an easy going nature. Bob fought an epic battle with the Academic Department for four years, finally emerging victorious with a History major. Such a fine competitor will be sure to find his way to the top wherever his interests take him. JAMES A. BOLAND Hailing from Wayne, New Jersey, Jim (known as " Bookie " by his close friends) came to Navy by way of Newark College of Engineering and the Naval Reserve. After the rigors of Plebe year, Jim settled down on academics and was occasionally on the Supt ' s List. Plebe year, Jim found his great love in life, the sailboat. Big or small, from Frostbiting in the winter to the Newport - Ber- muda race in the summer. He was always found out on the bay His great desire to sail helped him to earn his yawl command Youngster year. His fondness for the sea and uncanny way with the Steam Department will make him an asset to any ship he serves on. PEMBERTON COOLEY, III Pem came to the Academy from the rugged Tennessee hills. Military routine was certainly nothing new, after six years at the McCallie School, and his easygoing manner enabled him to meet all the challenges of life at Navy. With a major in Mechanical Engineering as his goal, " Cools " has done well enough in all phases of academics to be on both Dean ' s List and Supt ' s List consis- tently. Athletically, he was active in lightweight crew until the rigors of knocking 20 pounds off his sturdy frame to make weight convinced him that his talents could be better employed in intra- murals. Pern ' s experience on the Plebe Detail and as a striper will undoubtedly help him to enjoy a successful and rewarding career in the Naval Service. 406 CHARLES TODD CREEKMAIM, JR. Virginia Beach ' s loss was the Academy ' s gain. Todd ' s sense of responsibility permeated everything that he undertook. He was an AIIAmerican in pistol Plebe year and his academic achievements won him a Trident Scholarship. Yet, he would always be most willing to help his fellow midshipmen. A quick wit and warm personality made him greatly respected a mong his classmates. Being the son of a Navy Captain. Todd is highly motivated towards a career in the Navy. His perseverance, ability and fine character will make anyone proud to serve with him. J. KENNETH EDGAR Ken came driectly from high school to join the ranks of those who go down the sea in ships, believing that books are a man ' s best friend. With stars in his eyes he has been on the Supt ' s List every semester since Plebe year. Ken spent most of his weekends, being a married man, pulling an oar instead of dragging. Gar began rowing as a Plebe and continued as a varsity squad member and " N " winner for three years, he is also an avid football lover. Upon graduation Ken plans to go nuclear power for which his Marine Engineering major will prove valuable. JOHN CHRISTOPHER EVERETT Chris came to the Naval Academy from Baltimore, Maryl and. He is a hardy defender of that city and all its many professional athletic teams, especia-ly his beloved Colts. Whether on the ath- letic field himself or in the classroom he could be depended on to do his best. In high school he developed an interest in lacrosse that he carried over to USNA and pursued until he had secured a position on the varsity squad, where he proved to be a valuable asset. Early Youngster year Chris discovered a devotion to the pad and an interest in Operations Analysis. He has excelled in both areas. When Chris graduates the Navy will gain a fine officer and leader. WARD SOUTHERLAND EVERHART Ward came to the Academy directly from St. Paul ' s School in Baltimore, Maryland, where he devoted his time to lacrosse and books. At the Academy, Ward passed off the rigors of Plebe year with his characteristic nonchalance. While work ing toward a minor in Aerospace Engineering, he found plenty of time for athletics and was a regular on company sport teams. His interest in Navy Air attracted him to membership in the American Institute of Astronautics and Aeronautics. Never one to strictly limit his thoughts to Navy. Ward maintained an avid interest in fast cars and cool clothes. And on everything he did, he left his trademark of precision and perfection, that will make him a success wherever he goes in the Navy. JOHN DEAN FERNIE Paradise is a distant dream for most of us, not so for John, a Native Hawaiian. A real easy-going and well liked individual, John has maintained a level-headed and mature attitude which has allowed the year to pass easier. A leader among his classmates in the company, he also worked hard in his academics and has maintained a good academic standing. His fine ability as an all- around athlete completes the picture of a man who will be an asset to the Naval Service. ALBERT JOHN ROBERT GALUS Al, an Army brat, came to the Academy straight from high school in California after spending his earlier years in such places as New York, Germany and Texas. Whenever leave rolled around, Al never losing his desire to travel, always had a long way to go, especially when his parents were transferred toOkinawa. Always In good spirits, Al was liked by all. He studied hard and played hard, maintaining a Supt ' s List QPR as an Oceanography major and being an invaluable asset to the company lightweight football and batt tennis teams - no matter what the activity, " Dirty Al " always gave his all. Wherever the future takes Al, he Is sure to find success 407 C) HUGH GIBSON GOODWIN Always willing to give you the shirt off his back, Hugh fre- quently did just that as well as occasionally supplying a blind date to complement the shirt. Charleston certainly must have rubbed off on him because, when it came to professional know- ledge, Hugh must have written the book. The night before Nav Ops homework was due, he was the most popular midshipman in the Brigade. He was never hard to find but, once you found him, getting him out of bed was another matter altogether. Hugh ' s generosity and avid interest in the Navy will certainly make it easy for him to attain his sleeve of gold. JAMES EDWARD GUTMANN Jim, better known as " Gootes " came to the Academy from Dunedin, Florida. He made his athletic debut on the squash courts Plebe year, but his performance on both the Youngster and Second Class runs are what will be remembered at every reunion of the twenty-fifth company. His wit will not go unwanted in the Fleet where there is a ready audience for his amusing stories. Although an excellent scholar, stars have alluded him. Jim, with his outgoing manner will be a valuable asset in any wardroom, any ship, any Fleet, any Navy. GREOGRY LEE HANSEN Greg came to the shores of the Severn from the great state of Texas and, as a true Texan, would argue the virtues of his home to anyone within earshot. He successfully weathered Plebe year, excelling in football, squash, lacrosse and the academic life of USNA. The next three years were spent battling the Physics and Wires Departments in Sampson Hall and as one of " Bildy ' s Boys " on the varsity lacrosse field. Greg was four year company honor representative and generally conceeded the title of Mr. Fix-It by classmates with broken stereos. Never one to shy away from a good time, Greg found enough in his days as a mid and in June of 1969, the Navy will gain a fine officer. JOHN PHILIP HAZELRIG Phil came to the Academy fresh out of high school from sunny California near San Francisco. Originally recruited to play football for Navy, a knee injury forced Phil to settle tor company intra- murals the remainder of his stay. Among other interests Phil played guitar in one of the rock groups during his Second class year. While at the Academy Phil majored in politics and economics in which he was quite interested. A firm believer in the philosophy of working hard and playing hard, Phil seemed to en|oy his times at the Academy and, even more so, those at home. Whichever direction Phil heads after graduation, he will be one of the depend- able ones who gets the job done. I JAMES ALBERT HOOPER, IV Jim, a Navy junior, came to the Naval Academy after spending a good portion of his younger years in Europe. His outgoing personality and keen wit brought him many friends within the Brigade. A good all around athlete, Jim competed in a variety of intramural sports, but spent most of his afternoons in his last two years at the Academy up in the weight room. With his strong professional interest in the Navy and his intense drive toward success, Jim will undoubtedly become a standout during his years of service in the Fleet. CHARLES CHRISTOPHER JOHNSON When thinking of Chris, the first thoughts for many will be associated with his swimming ability. Those of us in the company will remember him better for his outgoing and sincere attitude. A determined but easygoing individual, Chris has very positive ideas about a Naval career. Energetic in various types of activities Chris can always be counted on to add to things and boost them along. An individual of his character holds great potential for a pro- ductive and rewarding life in the Navy. 408 WILLIAM DAVID KUNTZ Bill came to Navy straight from McKinleyville High School where he was valedictorian of his class. He soon became known as the man with iron concentration, and it was easy to see why he got along with academics. An avid participator in sports in high school. Bill brought his talents and enthusiasm to battalion tennis and company football. With an interest in music extending back to high school days. Bill furthered that interest at the Academy by joining the NA-10 and the Drum and Bugle Corps. Relaxed and easy going. Bill showed us the beginnings of a cool professionalism which should bring many rewards after graduat ion. MICHAEL THOMAS LOPS Soon after his graduation from high school in St. Petersburg, Florida, Mike Lops realized his life-long ambition when he passed through the hallowed halls of USNA for the first time. It did not take long for Mike to realize that his greatest efforts could be more profitably " spent in places other than the academic depart- ments and as a result he could always be found spending his freebies in a prone position. Always ready for a good time Mike could always be found dragging a certain brunette on weekends or any other time the opportunity presented itself. There can be no doubt that Mikes vibrant personality and friendly wit will make him a welcome addition to the ranks of the Naval Aviators. JOHN JAY MARSHALL J. J. came out of the coal fields of Pennsylvania, went through a year at NAPS, and entered the Naval Academy ' s hallowed halls well prepared. John brought with him a love for sports and a fine competitive spirit. After two years on the junior varsity football team, he spent his last year concentrating on company sports. His mature view of life combined with an unfailing sense of humor provides John with a personality that wins him the confidence and respect of people everywhere. John took academics seriously and was consistently over 3.00. He was also active in many extracur- ricular activities including the Lucky Bag staff. Graduation will find John taking with him everything essential for an outstanding career and rewarding life. ERIC EUGENE MATCHETTE Rick, a native of Santa Barbara, California, gave up a potential career as a ski bum in order to come to the Naval Academy. Immediately, he set his sights on a career in the submarine service. Through hard work, many hours at the library, and gallons of midnight oil, " Match " earned a Supt ' s List QPR as an Applied Science Major. As for his afternoons, you would have found Eric (if he wasn ' t in the padi in the squash courts or sailing. His easygoing, likable personality coupled with a fine sense of humor won Rick many lifelong friends while at the Academy. Match ' s high motivation, common sense and determination will certainly lead him to a brilliant career in the Naval Service. I ALDEN FOSTER MULLINS, JR. Jerry or " Moon " , as he is called by his classmates, came to the Academy from Cheltenham, Pennsylvania, From the start, it was obvious that Jerry was here for a purpose. He spent many week- ends in the Hall diligently working on his academics. Often, he was rewarded by making the Supt ' s or Dean ' s Lists. When he was not at the books, you could find him in the fencing loft, preparing for his next collegiate opponent. Jerry ' s dependability and dedication were quickly noted by his friends. This dedication, along with his high ideals will make Jerry a well-respect officer. I FALL! JAMES R. PADDOCK Jim came to the Academy directly out of high school from the windy city of Chicago. In four years, Jim has contributed much to the Academy, especially in varsity football, indoor and outdoor track, being an outstanding performer in all three. Besides his athletic abilities, Jim had a talent for the books which helped him to be one of the leading Chemistry majors at the Academy. Jim has a propensity for making friends, which is, indeed, another of his assets. Reflecting on his four years at the Academy, Jim ' s future should be very successful and rewarding. In whatever direc- tion Jim heads after graduation, he will prove a great person to work with and the man who will get the job done. DAVID PALMER RUSSELL III Dave ' s prior service in the Navy left him enthusiastic and raring to go when he took up residence on the banks of the Severn. Dave ' s love of the water extended even to his choice of sports, and afternoons would bring the snap of his whip and the ring of his voice as he acted as overseer of the crew teams. His knowledge of meteorology led to his being nominated " official company weatherman and rain maker, " although it was felt that his in- adequacy in providing a good rain every Monday and Wednesday stemmed from the fact that he didn ' t have to march. Dave ' s ambition and stick-to-it-iveness will benefit him greatly in any field he chooses. KENNETH W. TEVEBAUGH, II Leaving his beloved home in the Rockies, Ken came directly upon graduation from high school to the Severn, where his love of the West was never lost, despite the kidding by his classmates of " Teve ' s Barn " (his room) where a fellow mid was always welcome to the Western hospitality of a hot cup of coffee and one of the better department stores in Annapolis. Academics proved to be little problem to Ken and left time for cramming his mind with everythmg from Freud to Ayn Rand. Getting into many mid ' s hair, but always gaining friends by it, Teve was a friend to all with his service to the Brigade and willingness to help. Whatever branch of the service Ken chooses will certainly gain a fine officer. ARCHIE ANDREW TURNER, III As a graduate of Norland High School in Miami. Florida, " Turns " set out to make Bullis Prep aware of his presence, but after a year there, the Blue and Gold call and the salty spray of the Severn lured him to the Academy. Arch has never had trouble with academics. Making the Dean ' s List every semester since the beginning of Youngster Year, he worked towards a major in Aero- space Engineering. Arch played Plebe lacrosse until a heart- breaking knee injury sidelined his varsity efforts and gave the Brigade an outstanding intramural performer in everything from volleyball to heavyweights. His conscientious attitude and sharp intellect are sure to bring him success in Pensacola and in the air. 410 1 Em v ' x;x FALL SET: CDR: D. A. McPherson; SUB-CDR; N. A. Sjos- trom:CPO: W. R. Wilson.

The athletes nailed down 1st place in the fail sports competition, provided winning records in every sport and claimed several starters on Navy ' s 1968 football team. Company scholars were many resulting in lengthy Supt ' s and Dean ' s Lists. Company activities included supporting a Vietnamese family and throwing a Christmas party for orphans of the Annapolis area. What ability the company had in sport and study, it lacked in marching and tugging; fall Thursdays found 26 holding down an inferior position in rankings and the proteen boys ruined a perfect season by winning their last meet. 1968-69 proved to be just another year of excellence for 26th company. It was a continuation of improvement shown over several previous years and placed the company among the leaders in the Brigade. SPRING SET: CO. CDR: M 8 Clark; SUB-CDR: CPO: H. G.

P ii BARRY MICHAEL AMOS Barry ' s primary goal of overall self-betterment never took a back seat to anything in four years here, and the results were well worth the effort. Through his extreme conscientiousness he de- veloped himself into an exceptionally fine Dean ' s List student, an outstanding athlete and a very dynamic and tactful leader. All those who know Barry have felt his impression on them and wiM have to agree that because of his high degree of professionalism and social adaptability, he will surely contribute much to the fleet in his bid for one of the best officers of our time. RICHARD FRANCIS BROWN An Army brat with too much soul for the men in khaki, Rich came to us from Florida and prep school. With his quick wit and worldly knowledge. Rich was a natural mid, always able to talk his way into anything. Coming to the Academy was the realization of a long standing goal for Rich and he has spent his four years here improving himself. When not sleeping or studying he could be found singing or working with various academy activities. Athletic endeavors found him on the soccer field or sailing. Browny ' s free time was enjoyably spent relaxing with the finer things of life. Always an easy guy to make friends. Rich is assured of a happy and successful life in the Navy. DENNIS PATRICK BURKE Denny arrived at the Academy straight from the Garden State where he swung a big bat at a local high school and won all-state honors. An all-around athlete, he continued in nis success at Navy turning in four years of broken fingers and base hits for the Duffer ' s all-stars. For his outstanding efforts behind the plate, Denny was awarded all-east honors. Barely missing the finals for the Olympic swimming team, he still managed to pass his Second Class swim. Academics came easily to Denny, but unfortunately, grades didn ' t as he spent many hours under the rays of his study lamp. However, the Supply Corps has found a welcome addition in this man who is proud to call himself a professional. DAVID STEVENSON BURLIN Burls was the one to talk to if you were planning a trip, because chances were that he had already been there. This well- travelled Navy Junior, having spent his high school years in Paris, now calls Cape Cod his home. Determination and hard work were Big Dave ' s tickets through academic hardships, yet he always found time to catch the best of the sports in the yard, pick up on the latest in pop music, or make the social scene in style. His savoirfaire earned for him the position of personal advisor and confident to many of his classmates. Dave ' s dedication to the Naval Service insures him of a long and successful career with our country ' s finest. WILLIAM MICHAEL CIMA Four years at Naval Academy have only served to develop the natural ability determination that Bill brought with him as a Plebe. After getting off to a good start, he has continued to move ahead at the same demanding pace which has earned him consistently outstanding academic and athletic achievements. " Big Bill " or " Cims " , as he is known by his many friends, possesses the self- confidence and ability that made him a natural leader among us. Bill ' s most enduring quality however, has been his desire for personal excellence which has served him well in the past and will continue to do so in the future. MICHAEL RAY CLAPSADL Raised in Morehead City, North Carolina, Mike ventured to the Academy after experiencing a year of college life at the University of North Carolina. Bringing with him a unique ability to find a laugh in almost any situation and high sights set on eventually manning the stick of an F-4. Claps was more than able to meet the high standards of the Academy. His highly competitive spirit made him key playmaker on the company basketball team four years running. Mike decided to a Math major would set him into a cockpit and has been seen several times on the Supt ' s List. Mike ' s motivation and interest in Navy Air will undoubtedly lead him to find the success he desires, while his friends will always hold his friendship in the highest esteem. MICHAEL BERNARD CLARK Mike or Bernie, as his numerous friends call him, came to the Academy a superb athlete and honor student of Chammade High in Dayton, Ohio. The Academy ' s high standards and goals were exceeded and successfully achieved by Mike through his indus- trious efforts. The many long hours which were spent behind " the Green Fence " proved most worthwhile in Mike ' s being selected to the coveted position of Captain of " the Big Blue " , the varsity football team. Bernie ' s congenial nature and willingness to suc- cumb to the pad both provided the necessary outlet and willing- ness from the frequent ribbing which friends provided. Mike will always be remembered as the man to have around during difficult times when a true friend is needed. I MARVIN HOWARD CRISP Marv came to us from Spokane, Washington — in the great Pacific Northwest. From the start of our first academic year he established a reputation as a hard worker, which culminated in his being on both the Supt ' s and Dean ' s Lists continuously. Yet he was never too busy to help out his classmates, particularly in his major area of interest — Mathematics. Excellence is academics was not Marv ' s only achievement. He was a varsity letter winner in fencing, and captain of the sabre team during our first class year. Marv ' s drive and determination, coupled with his ever congenial personality will stand him in good stead regardless of which branch of the Naval Service he enters. BRIAN DAVID ENGLER Coming to us after a year of college life in his hometown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Brian was still one of the youngest members of the Class of ' 69 However, he quickly ad|usted to Academy life and excelled both militarily and academically. Never one to stay in his room on Saturday night, if he wasn ' t on a date you could find Brian m the wardroom in front of the television. Brian also participated actively in athletics, aiding his battalion team to win the Brigade fencing championship. Second Class year. As varsity fencing manager. First Class year, his initiative and organizational ability greatly reduced the problems of his team- mates. These same outstanding qualities will assure him success as one of the Navy ' s finest officers. I CRAIG GILLASPIE Craig came to the Academy from Tucson, Arizona where his main pursuits were centered around athletics. Since arriving here, Craig has concentrated his efforts on football and boxing. Upon graduation, it will be Navy Air if his eyes prevail, otherwise he would eventually like to get into the Underwater Demolition Team. Craig ' s hobbies include anything athletic especially snow skiing, traveling, reading, with Frank Yerby and Robert Roark being his favorite authors, playing poker and going to the horse races, an d listening to jazz and rhythm and blues. WILLIAM FRANCIS KACHERGUS, JR. Never let it be said that Chergy stayed in to study when there was a party to be found. Bill, one of the original college guys, brought his talents for having a great time. No matter what the conditions, along with the famous New York crowd. Friendly with everybody, underclass and upperclass alike. Bill was always captain of the Bancroft E.I. team. Never turning down anyone ' s request for help. An asset to all the intramural teams. Bill was best in basketball, helping out both the company and batt teams. High class standing and a positive naval attitude make it a certainty that Chergy will pursue a long and hard working Naval career. 414 ROLAND DOMENIC LAURENZO Rollie graduated from St Thomas High School in Houston, Texas where he was named All-State halfback. His talents con- tinued onto the Navy gridiron where he is popularly known as the dog. " Football is not his only sport. His prowess on the football field and the Navy track team is matched only by his smoothness which he readily displays whenever putting down a few bars of " two steps from the blues. " Besides Rollie ' s hobbles of sports and singing he loves to delve into a good poker game or any other game of chance. DAVID CARL LORD A product of suburban Philadelphia, Dave greeted Annapolis with a carefree look towards college life and a genuine desire to live life fully. He accepted the rigors of Academy routine with little undo concern, realizing that the existence of a good sound or a lively femme made all else seem secondary. His casual exterior was, however, offset by hard work and determination. He, like the rest, took both academics and athletics in stride but found the strides lengthen as he moved towards graduation. His talents were well appreciated on the company soccer and Softball teams. A welcomed additon to any command, Dave will find success and satisfaction in whatever he does. • I HEINZ GUNTHER MAURER Heinz came to the Academy after spending two years in the Marine Corps. His German background carried him into the Foreign Language field where he sought his major. An avid sports fan, Heinz could always be seen in the weightliftmg room getting ready for weightliftmg competition in the spring. Reading novels by his favorite authors took up most of his spare time. Although he found the Academy quite challenging at times his easy going attitude kept him from getting too upset about anything. DAVID ALLEN McPHERSON Dave, or Mac as he is called by all who know him, made his way to the Academy from God ' s country as he claims his home- town of Lisbon, Ohio is called. There was, however, one inter- mediate stop at NAPS. Dave came to the Academy on the prowess of his ability on the basketball court, but soon proved this ability extended into the academic field as well. He chose Math as his major and had little trouble for his name appeared consistently on the Supt ' s List. In athletics Mac has been an outstanding com- petitor on the basketball and tennis courts. Whatever future Dave decides to pursue he will have little trouble for his magnetic personality will bring him friends and success. k i DAVID MOORE MIZE Dave built quite a reputation for himself during fiis four years at the Academy. " Mr. Term Paper " was known to spend many a weekend in his room successfully pursuing his Foreign Relations major. It was said that he would do whatever was necessary to put himself on top and that was just what he did with his high grades and high stripes. Dave is respected and admired by all his class mates for his enthusiasm, conscientiousness and self-instilled drive. No one was ever more dedicated to a military career than " Heavy " and it is certain that Marine Corps will have in him one of the finest and hardest working officers it could ask for. WILLIAM VON SCHWARZENBACH This chubby, shy young Plebe who arrived m Annapolis on his 18th birthday came a long way in four years. " Schwartz " was one of the hardest workers around and consistently made the Dean ' s and Supt ' s Lists. A German major, he was the ace of the Language Department. The big German was an avid sports fan, and if he wasn ' t studying, he could be found on the hard courts, the Softball diamond, or the handball courts. The word was that a Plebe never Stumped him on a sports question in three years. Schwartz was also widely known for his monkey business at professional lee tures. Moderation and June Week will also take on special meaning when linked with the name Schwarzenbach, If WVS maintains his dedication and willingness to work, he is bound to be a slugger in life. NILS ALFRED SJOSTROM The Garden State has made a fine contribution to the Naval Academy and to the Navy in the form of a young and talented Swedish meatball, " the Sjos. " Combining athletic prowess, good looks and an excellent mind. Nils met with instant success in all facets of Academy life. In addition to playing three years of varsity soccer, he managed to obtain Supt ' s List grades with great consistency. Nils has always been a high flier, particularly at party time, and thus took a keen interest in Navy Air. Devotion, a keen mind, and a quick wit have won him many close friends at our four year college. Having shown himself to be a top quality guy, he will leave his mark in the annals of the Naval Service. JAMES C.SMITH, III Jim calls Beaumont, Texas his home. His accent lets you believe him. Easy going and a Gentleman of the South, he was always willing to lend a classmate a hand. His presence has always been welcome on company football, basketball and Softball teams. Smitty also spent part of his time underwater with the Scuba Club. When he wasn ' t studying he could be found in front of the " tube " or up the road in Severna Park. Jim will be a decided asset to any wardroom he joins. PATRICK TIMOTHY WELSH P. T., as he ' s more commonly known to his classmates, hails from a service background. You can find his dad in the ' 42 Lucky Bag. Though he lives in McLean, Virginia, it is common knowledge his home is really considered in California. Southern California that is, which is reflected in his Spanish Club interest. Quite at home in the water, Pat attended Under Water Swimmers School m Key West. His qualification as scuba instructor helped earn him a position as treasurer of the Scuba Club. A member of the Plebe and varsity sailing teams he also spent time on the sailing Squad- ron. In the winter, when its too cold to swim or sail you ' d find P. T, playing lightweight football . . . and waiting for spring. ALAN JOSEPH WHITBY Alan came to the Academy from Chilton, Wisconsin where sports were his main interest. His sports interest has carried over but on a recreational level. After graduation, he plans to go Air, if his eyes remain good enough. Since attending the Academy he has developed an avid interest in all types of music, especially rhythm and blues. The Academy life has presented its problems, but with a never ending sense of humor he has managed to survive the hard times as well as the good times. 416 WILLIAM RALPH WILSON Willy, as he came to be known, hailed from Brattleboro, Vermont and winter ' s cold. His terse and witty tongue makes him a good man with any group, or anybody. He adapted to Navy life rapidly, and even conquered the Dean ' s List while competing for rack time honors — an achievement any mid would be proud to claim He quickly developed a love for the water which turned him to dinghy and ocean sailing and scuba diving. Always busy, he managed to be part of the Antiphonal Choir and hold down a position on the " animal squad " in company football. Being " The Best " is his by-word. Willy ' s quick and diligent mind will stand him in good stead in the future. KEITH ALLEN WINTERS Swinging out of the Indiana jungles as " Wints, " as this former farmer is known, has kept his easygoing cool. Joining us straight from high school, Keith brought with him a penchant for unbe- lievable gadgetry and chemistry. Dividing his weekdays between his chem major and the pad oracle left him little slack time, but Sick-man was always able to rouse himself enough to take on the world in handball and track. Always interested in stopping the world on weekends, Wints created his own world and weekends would find him at home in the " wardroom " living and loving. The system never got to Keith, defeated by his friendly personality, and enormous extraction factor. The Navy has nothing to offer Keith but success. Si JOHN GEORGE WOODS Coming to the Academy from the collegiate atmosphere of Champaign, Illinois, it was only natural that Woody would turn out to be a real college guy. He might be one of the first graduates to get through without ever finding a barber shop in the basement. After running of the Plebe cross country team, John decided to follow the call of the good life and the intramural sports teams benefitted from his athletic abilities. No slouch with the books. Woody was constantly on the Dean ' s List. Despite the fact that he spent innumerable hours in the pad. Always with a good word for everybody. Woody made friends easily and will undoubtedly be a success at whatever he does. DAVID BOLTON ZERFOSS David arrived at Canoe U. with a Navy background and a wide variety of " home ports. " His quick tongue, wide vocabulary and every-present cackle won " Little Allen " many friends quickly. A long afternoon and a flying Cornish hen landed Dave many moons at the battalion office during the early rounds of Youngster year. Always being surrounded by a bevy of beauties of various degrees brought " Boltarr " many problems along with many conquests of the fairer sex. A well known figure in many academic departments here at Navy, David came close but never a cigar for excellence in this phase of Academy life. David will have no trouble carving a place for himself in the fleet, as I ' m sure he will be followed by fair winds wherever he goes. i r r t 27TH COMPANY SECOND CLASS Row 1: Mackenzie, T.

Connell, USN ' . :; », • ' . ' -I • 1 HARRY KENT ALLISON A native of Cumberland, Maryland. Kent came to the Naval Academy after graduation from NAPS and two years ' active duty in the Fleet. With a major in Aeronautical Engineering, Kent always has been an outstanding student, appearing regularly on the Supt ' s and Dean ' s Lists. As well as demonstrating proficiency in academics, Kent has more than proved himself on the varsity squash, plebe tennis and Plebe crosscountry teams. Kent ' s matur- ity and poise and willingness to work hard should stand him in good stead as an officer in the Navy. WILLIAM VINCENT ARBACAS, JR. Coming from a Marine family Bill traveled a lot before settling down at Navy, but he claims his allegiance to the Corps, the South and the " Pad. " After battling the Physics Department both Youngster and second class year, he decided that his true academic capabilities lay in the Bull Department, where the tutelage of Walter vVart and his " Theory on Frigits, Bwoniks, and FwineOuts " inspired Bill through many a term paper season. As a Segundo he lettered during both the Fall and Spring seasons with the Execu- tive Department and could be seen many a weekend standing proudly before the main office. Wherever there was a party " Arbs " would usually make the scene and add a certain spark that will surely bring him a very happy and successful future. STEPHEN ARTHUR BRIXEY Hailing from the thriving metropolis of McMinnville, Oregon, " Bnx " was a welcome addition to any group and made friends quickly and easily with nearly everyone. During Plebe and Youngster years he could often be found out on the Severn, pulling an oar for the heavyweight crew team. If he wasn ' t there you could look wherever a good time was to be had and usually find him. Muhlmeister ' s Ice Cream Parlor was probably his favorite Annapolis hangout. His determiniation and ability to do what needs to be done will prove to be a great asset to Brix and will insure his success as an officer, and his personality will ensure his success as an individual. STANLEY WALTER BRYANT A broad smile could not disguise the determination for excel- lence that characterized Stan. " Brant " always made efficient use of his time at the Academy whether or not the bull sessions came before or after hitting the books. The Engineering Department proved no obstacle to him and his name was often found on either the Supt ' s or Dean ' s List. And who couldn ' t like a guy who would lose 35 pounds to play 150 lb. football and still remain the tough competitor that he always was. Weekends were Stan ' s favorite, probably a habit left over from his high school days at Grosse Pointe University School and a year of hard socializing at Wayne State University. The officer corps is receiving a man of whom it will be proud. LEONARD JOSEPH CALLAN Joe came to the shores of the Severn by way of Abilene, Texas. With him he brought athletic skills that made him a standout on many a company sports team. He even found time to letter on the Plebe fencing team. The classroom is no exception to Joe ' s story of achievement as he was a regular member of the Supt ' s and Dean ' s Lists. Despite this feat he never lost his love for the pad. When not otherwise occupied, Joe was usually found reading anything from cereal box tops to the latest novels. Never one to be satisfied with anything but the best, Joe ' s determination and perseverance will guarantee him the realization of any goal upon which he sets his siohts. 420 PETER STEWART CHALFANT Pete came to the Academy without any idea of what he was getting himself into, but quickly adjusted to Plebe year and survived its terror with the knowledge that Youngster Year would be spent in the pad. Chals could be found during any given study hour discussing vital issues such as sports, girls and parties. Despite his lack of study, Petes QPR was consistently over 3.0. The only course ever to give Chals any difficulty was " OOW-ESCAPE AND EVASION, " but he could often be found getting El on weekends at the Main Office. Pete has had a unique history with the dollies, and many of his exploits are known brigade-wide. Pete ' s avid dedication, undying spirit, and outstanding professionalism will reap great dividends for him in the Naval Service. CHRISTOPHER B. DOYEL A Navy Junior who graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School in Portsmouth, Virginia, Chris now calls Annapolis home. Devoting much of his time to debate, he is one of the few men to beat Army and not get an N star Chris ' competitive spirit never faltered whether in the stands or on the playing field. He was a member of a regimental champion Softball team and the batt rugby team. Chris never found academics too difficult and helped many classmates pull through. As fortunate with the fairer sex as he was with academics, Chris ' warm personality and quick wit surrounded him with female companionship. His determination and sound judgment will insure him success throughout his career. GEORGE HARTLEY EASTWOOD A Navy junior. George came to the shores of the Chesapeake after graduating from Centennial High School in Portland, Oregon. Getting off to a good start Plebe year, George tried to win the favor of his summer squad leader by offering his grandmother as a blind date. George, like most mids, was never one to let academics come between him and the pad. In spite of his many hours doing battle with the pad monster, he consistently maintained a good average. Always an enthusiastic participant in sports, George had positions on the company Softball and fieldball teams well anchored. No matter what branch he chooses, George ' s competi- tive nature, determination, and perseverance leave little doubt as to his future success. ROBERT DIXON GARNER Bob liked the transition from high school in Solomons. Mary- land (a small fishing village on the banks of the Chesapeake) so well that he decided to cram the usual four year program into five. Plebe year Bob rowed in the boat that won the national freshmen crew championship. " Garns " was one of the four whose motto, " Yeah, but I won ' t get you back " led to many an eventful study hour. Bob had the knack of raising havoc anywhere and anytime, but when there was a job to be done, he would do it. With his ability to gain the respect and admiration of his men. Bob will make an outstanding officer and gentleman. i- LESLIE MARTIN GOTCH The Gitch came to USNA from the pride of the foothills, Glendora, California. A former NROTC student at Iowa State University, he is one of the few to repeat Youngster Cruise As a youngster he won the title of " king of the pad, " and has con- tinued to uphold this claim. Never one to be found with his nose in a textbook, his studies were matched only by his swimming ability. Avoiding haircuts and company officers were his major sports, but he also found time to indulge in company lightweights, slow pitch Softball, and varsity football manager. Les can always be found with a smile on his face and more often than not, it is an indication of California dreaming. JAMES DOUGLAS HARRIS Jim. known to his close friends as " J. D. " or " Harrassment. " came to Crabtown from the sunny South Shore beaches of Long Island. After a brief bout with Ops Analysis. Jim set up home in Maury Hall and " shoveled " his way through the next three years. During term paper season he could be found laboring until reveille under the inspirational guidance of Walter Wart. Whenever there was a party, Jim always helped start and finish the fun and the " vat " with a smile. From Fire Island to the Bloomington Cam- paign, Jim had but one end in sight and it appears certain he has succeeded. With his drive and determination to excel, coupled with his very likeable ways. Jim is assured of happiness and success in the years ahead. JAMES ANTHONY JOHNESEE " Johns " hails from Farmmgton, Michigan. He is probably the most devoted man In our class— to anything and everything. There weren ' t enough hours in the day to complete all of his activities or find new ones. Nothing passed his attention unnoticed or unacted upon. Always one with girl problems, Jim managed to have two dates for June Week Plebe year and then struck out seven times Youngster year. Although Jim was a capable basketball player, he was asked to hang up his sneakers to manage the varsity team First Class year. He can always be depended on to do an outstanding job in any task he undertakes. If he ever decides on his service selection, he will make an outstanding Naval Officer. EDWARD JOSEPH LEHRE Tired of academics after high school, " E. J. " spent two years as a salmon fisherman off the California coast before coming to USNA. Leaving his home on easy street in Alamo, California, he adjusted well to life at the Academy. His quick wit and humor made him the life of all the company parties. As the social director of the company, he filled and emptied many a good vat. As a member of the varsity track team, Ed divided his time between the high jump pit and the pad, but still found time to make Supt ' s List as a foreign language minor. Ed ' s love of the sea has always been evident, and he looks forward to his first command. EDWARD ARMSTRONG LYONS, II Hailing from Cleveland, Mississippi, population 10,000 (in- cluding dogs and cats), Eddie quickly got the big picture and skated through Plebe year demonstrating his ability to become scarce when necessary. Very active in athletics, Ed played for various Navy varsity squads, including the infamous " Weems Creekers. " " Champagne Eddie " , one of the most amiable guys to come to Navy, was quite the socialite, outgoing, always looking for a good party and a girl who could keep up with him. Winner of the company brick two times running, he did have his social setbacks, but always took it like a true southern gentlemen. This same winning combination of personality and determination will carry Eddie far in whatever field he chooses to follow. d I i WILLIAM RICHARD MILLER Bill came to USNA from Yorktown High School in Arlington, Virginia, but now calls New Orleans his home. The son of a Navy captain, he has salt water in his veins, and spends his afternoons sailing on the Chesapeake Bay. Second Class year Bill was recog- nized as a hero for his part in blowing up the Electrical Science Lab. First Class summer his love for the sea was demonstrated when he took the longest cruise with the least liberty. Although professionally oriented. Bill showed his athletic ability on the company field ball team. The Navy can look forward to years of service from this dedicated individual. ROBERT LEE RACHOR, JR. Bob could always be distinguished by his wrinkled skin because of the hours he spent in the pool. His swimming prowess always earned him post-season trips to the Easterns and the Nationals and eased many " freshman " year pressures. Between numerous study breaks, " Rocket " took his Aerospace curriculum seriously and was always determined to make good grades in spite of his ever present overload. St. Joseph ' s Prep, in his hometown of Philadelphia, was where he spent his last pre-Academy days. It was always hard for him to have anything but a good time - all the time — and his friendly outgoing personality always rubbed off on those around him. Rocket will be an asset to and a fine representative of the Navy wherever he goes. 422 t- WILLIAM CLARK REED Bill came to us by way of the fleet and NAPS- Hailing from the great Midwest, this Ohio boy brought with him a smile and a cheerfulness that makes him a great friend to have in any situa tion. A strong desire to do his best in everything he does has led him to excel as a member of the wrestling team and to do well in academics. Bill ' s great competitive spirit will stand him in good stead as a wearer of the green. Bill ' s outstanding character and willingness to work will continue to make him friends and will carry him through life and a service career as well as it has carried him here at the Academy. GEORGE PAUL TERWILLIGER " Twigs ' came to Navy from booming New Britain, Connec- ticut labeled for the Navy soccer team. After tending the goal for three years he changed his sport from catching soccer balls to catching Z ' s and rarely missed a workout. Aware of the profes- sional importance of a naval officer ' s eyesight, George carefully avoided the visual strains of textbooks during the evening hours. His weekends were sporadically planned but always well spent, earning him the privilege of lettering with the Executive Depart- ment. Whether you wanted " a little off the top " for Saturday noon, a " hardcore " party man or just a friendly ear Twigs could always help you out. George ' s ambition is to be a jet pilot and he ' ll be one of the best. i ROLAND CHURCHILL THATCHER, III " Thatch " flew straight from high school into Canoe U. ready to get to the real man ' s business of flying. " Thatch " surmounted every obstacle Plebe Year maintaining his personal dignity to the end. Youngetsr Year found Rusty launching a strike against the Aerospace Department where he met with heavy fire. He fought hard securing the academic front, and his famous " I ' ve been working too hard lately " was prelude to many a Z sessions. A true sportsman and gentleman R. C. worked hard on the athletic fields and the fields of social endeavor. He was always ready for a good party and a hot date. Rusty ' s determination and his ability to get the job done will make him one of the Navy ' s finest. LAWRENCE STEPHEN THOMSON A typically well traveled Navy junior, Larry came to Canoe U. from his present home in Alexandria, Virginia. Larry validated Plebe year in the hospital after breaking his ankle in a firstie-plebe football game. His academic interests centered around Inter- national Relations m the Bull Department while at the same time foiling the plots of his arch enemy, the Skinny Department. Aside from academics, Larry ' s athletic prowess made him a valuable asset to the battalion swimming and water polo teams. ' Thomps " was one of the company lovers and changed girls each Fall, Winter and Spring set. Larry ' s enthusiasm, determination and drive to be on the top of everything will carry him far in the Naval Service. GERALD THOMAS WITOWSKI Jerry came to Navy from the resort town of Hayward, Wiscon- sin. While in high school he exceied in all forms of athletics, and at the Academy he put his ability to good use on the company ' s intramural teams. He also found a place on the varsity rifle team. Although never aspiring to be a scholar, Jerry managed to keep his marks high with little if any effort. Study hours invariably found him visiting with his classmates. When not engaged in important activities, he was usually found in the clutches of the " Pad Monster, " who seemed to have a particular liking for this mid. Jerry ' s wit and ability to get along with people will assure him of future success. RICHARD AUGUST WROBEL " Wrobs " now calls the sunshine state home, but he has seen most of the states and Japan. An Air Force junior, he decided to switch to the better branch by coming to USNA. In the Fall and Spring, Rick can be seen beating golf balls around the course effectively enough to keep himself out of p-rades. He has a strong affinity for anything that flies, especially airline stewardesses and good parties. Although he has no Indian ancestry, he has often been mistaken for a large bronze statue at the end of Stribling Walk, and is truly associated with the 2.0. Without an academic hindrance. Rick will go far in his chosen field. 423 28TH COMPANY SECOND CLASS Row 1: Finnegan, G. R., Jr.; Clark, R. O.; Joyce, T. J; Schwab, J. B.; Sullivan, P. F.; Thomas, R. H.; Dunn, P. O.

If [rrr: ' lyji k ■ rirHip , " Live and let live " was our motto and, unless our own liberty was threatened, the underclass enjoyed a free reign during our First Class year. Company Officers were never a problem. As long as it was in the reg book, things were O.K. Unfortunately, pin-ups and other such non-professional things were not " in " and we enjoyed the dubious distinction of living in the most virtuous rooms in Bancroft. The biggest shock of the four years was the move from the happy-go-lucky First Batt. to the fouled-up Fifth. Many offgoing MCBO ' s were known to retreat to their pads, breathing a prayer of thanks that they had escaped with only the " customary " 10 demos. There have been many incidents during our years. Too numerous to recount, they will be remembered by those to whom they are im- portant and used as the basis for stories of officer ' s clubs around the world. SPRING SET: CO. CDR: R. A. Robbins; SUB-CDR: M B. Moore; CPO: M. P. Rose. 28th COMPANY OFFICER LT J. M. Butler, USN ROBERT EDWARD ADAMSON Troy, New Hampshire claims Bob as a native son. The Academy was rocked back on its traditions when " Boober " arrived in a " cah " which he " pahked " somewhere to become one of the youngest plebe ' s in the class. Although Bob never shaved seriously in his entire four years, he did everything else in and out of the regulations and never suffered a dull moment. A natural athlete. Bob contributed his talents to sports, exceling at lightweight football and Softball. With an innate ability to turn even the worst situations to his advantage, Bob ' s guaranteed an interesting and colorful life. WILLIAM SHELDON BUTTRILL Coming in from the West to place his mark on the East and the Academy, Shelly has done an outstanding job. He is a friend of all and always willing to go out of his way to help others. He had to overcome shortness of stature to gain his starting berth on the football team and climaxed second class year football season with a sensational leaping interception against ARMY enroute to winning his N . The spring and winter found him chasing a javelin out on Thompson Field, being Navy ' s best javelin thrower. His sports prowess and personality led him to be elected President of the " N " Club. The little " Big Snowman " will find happiness and success in all further endeavors. FRANCIS MICHAEL CASEY Mike came to Navy via a long year at Bullis Prep The only son of North Plainfield, New Jersey to venture along this path in many years, he was recruited for the track team as a pole vaulter. Mike ' s luck held out for his first two years with the Executive Depart- ment. Then came second class year and literally hundreds of trips to the main office as a member of the varsity restriction squad. Prone to let things go until the last minutes, Mike fought a long hard battle with the various academic departments at Navy, and invariably, finals brought with them many sleepless nights. But men, like bullets go farthest when smoothest, and the fleet will surely welcome this one with open arms. THOMAS VANCE FOWLER Fowls came to USNA as a Navy junior and dove right into the spartan military life with an enthusiasm that lasted nearly twenty minutes. After that, he lived for sailing and tried not to let academics get in his way. No coincidence were his initials, T. V. He had a magic touch with our tube and succeeded where others failed. Fowls strove to bring a more relaxed atmosphere to USNA, particularly during his free periods and managed to wear out six bedspreads during his four year tenure. Thus began the legend of Rip Van Fowler. All kidding aside, his interest in the Navy and desire to do a good job will take him far in the officer corps. STEPHAN ALEXANDER HANVEY A true southern gentleman, Steve came to USNA from the heart of Dixieland — Anderson, South Carolina. Steve was fast to adapt to his northern home as he rapidly became the outstanding distance runner in our class. An academic slash, first semester plebe year saw Steve don gold stars and he continued to maintain his mastery over the academic department for four years. First class year saw Steve as captain of the Navy cross country team and, as always, a vital member of the indoor and outdoor track teams. Academic stars weren ' t enough for Steve as his tremendous desire earned him the coveted gold " N " star for victory over Army. JARVISGENE HILTON Although it took him a year at Colorado University, another in the fleet and still a third at NAPS, Jay finally found his way to USNA. His vast experiences proved invaluable to both him and his classmates. Never was there a problem too large or too small that he was not willing and able to help others tackle. While a slash at the ep ee, a star on the Brigade championship volleyball team, and a standout shot putter for batt track. Jay could always be found curled up with a good book. As he joins the long blue line. Jay ' s effluent personality and natural leadership are sure to guide him to a sparkling career. 426 BRYAIM HRABOSKY, JR. Coming to USNA with a great love of sports, " Ski " soon showed his abilities in J. V. football and as a star of the battalion handball team. A firm believer in the philosophy that a well rested mind learns more, Bryan could be found diligently preparing for class every first period. Despite his losing battles with the " pad monster, " Bryan still proved himself an able student of manage- ment. In his earlier years Bryan also showed his abilities in Bull and was widely acclaimed as the " Poolie Poet Laureate " . Bryan always tried to bring humor into the bleak lives of his many friends and sometimes succeeded. Bryan ' s willingness to help others and to assume responsibility should bring him success in all his endeavors. RONALD JADLOCKI " Jads " came to the Academy from Pennsylvania after spending one year at Slippery Rock State College. A quiet personality and natural good humor carried Ron easily through the shock of become a plebe, the drudgery of younsterhood, and the impa- tience of second and first class years. He had a pretty practical outlook on the Academy and military life in general and was sometimes baffled by the Navy way but almost always managed to work things out to his advantage. A champion wrestler before his Academy days, Ron spent many hours in the loft making things tough for his competition. The same determination and competi- tiveness which served him so well at the Academy in sports and academics should guarantee Ron a fruitful career. SCOTT DOUGLAS KETCHIE The Crimson Tide lost one of its most devoted sons when Ketch decided to begin his self-imposed imprisonment behind the cheerful grey walls of the Academy. Scott undoubtedly broke more than his share of young female hearts while at the Academy. The local lasses never had a chance with the Ketch, however, due to a O. A. O. back m BAMA. Athletically Scott was a plebe pitcher and a regular on the company football and soccer teams. While spending endless hours teaching his roommate the mys- teries of electrical science, Scott still managed to regularly place his name on the Supt ' s List. Scott ' s genuine sense of humor and easygoing disposition will undoubtedly aid him in becoming the finest of officers. ROBERT BELL KLUGH A Steelton, Pennsylvania boy. Bob has decidly established himself as a man of action. Whether on the athletic field, in the classroom, or at an Army-Navy game party Bob could always be counted on to be in the middle of the action. A fierce competitor, he was known for his prowess on the rugby and football fields. As a student Bob was renowned for hitting the rack, without first hitting the books, and still achieving an academic standing far above the rest of us. As for his social life, nobody has ever inferred that Bob has been associated with a dull time. Bob will always be known to his many friends by both his cheerful, unselfish outlook on life and his keen sense of humor. Bob will undoubtedly typify the very finest officer in the Naval Service. JAMES KNUBEL " Knubes " came to the Academy from Oradell, New Jersey and wasted little time in making his presence felt at the " Trade School. " Known for his academic prowess, especially in Ocean- ography, Jim wore stars, which he was always giving away to any girl who would take them. Although gangly in appearance, he was one of the toughest competitors on the company soccer and fieldball teams. His passions in life are hunting, sleeping and girls and he tried to get as much as possible of each. Although he was a licensed private pilot, Jim earned the distinguished title of " Wrong Way Knubel " for landing the wrong way twice in his souped-up Piper Cub. It is evident that the Academy ' s loss will be the Navy ' s gain. JOHN PATRICK MALEY Pat, also known as " Jimbo " came to the Naval Academy straight from the Kansas wheat fields. Pat never had much trouble with academics and his name often appeared on the Supt ' s List. His big downfall seemed to be those big gray boats. He always kept up to date on sports and his skill at athletics was a big help in batt. football, company soccer and Softball. Pat couldn ' t work hard all the time and when he wasn ' t working he was either having a blast or sound asleep. He always made friends wherever he went. Pat will be a success no matter what career he decides on. 427 WILLIAM CRAIG McCLAIN, JR. Craig arrived at Navy from the fair state of Arkansas and proved himself to be the model Southern gentleman. Never failing to elicit a laugh from the boys, he continually amazed everyone with his silver tongued eloquence. After journeying to Japan during his second class summer he returned to Crabtown with an eager desire to slash out with the books and found himself once again in a running battle with the executive department and an extended tour of TAD at the mam office for many weekends. He was a well-known man in the Naval Science Department ' s manage- ment committees and was always able to manage his own affairs with equal aplomb. The Academy ' s loss will be the Navy ' s gain when Craig joins the fleet upon graduation. I JOHN GREGORY MITCHELL Greg comes from the home of the football Hall of Fame, Canton, Ohio. Running headlong into a " dull " Plebe year, his fondest remembrance is developing his puny 210 pound body into a muscular 155 pound frame. On the athletic side Gregor devel- oped interests in intramural soccer, football and the old reliable — slow pitch. Meeting conditioning requirements was no problem since he considered a rested athlete an asset to his team, and many hours were spent pursuing this philosophy. Among his interests were numerous parties on Saturday nights, and the evenings spent on Church Circle, developing a bad case of fallen arches. Wherever Greg ' s career may lead the Navy will find an amiable and capable gentleman ready to excel. MITCHELL DEE MOORE Navy discovered Mitch out West in Utah, happily skiing the trails and hiking the unexplored grottoes of the Rockies. It took some doing to persuade him to trade Weejuns and cutoffs for more conservative and less spectacular surroundings. Once the change was made, however, Mitch determined to excel. He managed Supt ' s List with ease - despite a voluminous correspondence that must have included half the western United States. He devoted his free time and organizational abilities to our championship soccer teams as capable manager. His easy going and carefree nature helped him endure the disbelief of his classmates, who couldn ' t quite accept his seemingly natural innocence. Mitch seems to have a natural flair for just about everything. MILES BRUCE POTTER Bruce was really a Texas cowboy at heart and never missed a chance to let all his dude friends know what things were like in God ' s country. Since calf roping and bronc bustin ' weren ' t offered as part of the Academy sports program, " Potts " made do with varsity football and JayVee basketball - winning his N-star in Philadelphia during second class year. With a quiet, easy going outlook and a heart as big as a Stetson hat, Bruce never could run plebes. How many times did we hear " Hey you, carry on, " and know the big Texan was somewhere close by. Four years of Academy life failed to change Bruce ' s philosophy of live and let live. It just convinced him that it was the only philosophy to have. TITOMAIMLIO RINCON Born in the beautiful city of Maracaibo, Tito came to Navy from the Venezuelan Naval Academy. After finishing two years there he was chosen to be his country ' s representative at USNA. After mastering English at an astonishing rate, he went on to attain the Supt ' s List for several semesters. Soon he demonstrated his powers in athletics by excelling in the Plebe gymnastic team. Tito ' s main interest being girls, he maintained a record as a true Latin lover helped by his natural aptitude for singing. Well liked by everyone who knows him he will undoubtedly be a great asset to the Venezuelan Navy and a classmate who won ' t soon be forgotten. 428 RICHARD ALAN ROBBINS Rich left Razorback land to become one of the outstanding leaders at the Academy- His easy going attitude and his flair for positive leadership found the responsibilities of command thrust upon him. Rich accepted the challenge and did his job well Athletically, he and his roommate formed the toughest pair of defensive ends that the lightweights had ever seen. The spring found him running for the battalion track team. Academically he was a bull slash — spending hours pouring over history book: (anything to keep him away from a slide rule). Rich is a credit tc the Brigade and can only reflect greater credit upon the officer corps of the Naval Service. MICHAEL PAUL ROSE Mike came to the Academy from the bourbon state, Kentucky, already possessing of the primary attributes necessary for a naval career. A willingness to serve and a great affinity for travel. Through his roommate, and his ability in Spanish, Mike has developed an active interest in South America. On the " fields of friendly strife " you can find Mike driving for two with the batt basketball team, while in the spring his interests turn to 40-love and tennis. None of his activities deter him from ardently pursuing his Physics minor. Second class summer, Pensacola worked its magic and gained a flying enthusiast. His willingness to serve and marked ability will soon distinguish Mike as a fine officer and an asset to the Naval Service. MICHAEL TURNER SMITH Mike came to the Naval Academy after spending a year at the University of Oklahoma. Mike has spent many long hard hours studying, and his efforts did not go unrewarded. Mike not only completed his major in Mechanical Engineering, but also was selected for the Trident Scholar Program, thereby achieving a goal second only to graduating and receiving his commission. Despite his continuous drive to attain a 4.0, Mike has found plenty of time to devote to athletics. Mike has participated m Brigade boxing and was a member of the Sailing Squadron. He was a member of the Scuba Club. A quiet but sincere midshipman, Mike will definitely grace the ranks of any field which he might choose for his career. DAVID ARTHUR SPRIGGS Dave came a hard charger, fresh from the reserves. His know- ledge of the Navy served him and his classmates well Plebe year. Even now he could tell a bow from a stern, no matter how far away she was. The undisputed trivia champion, he foiled many a Plebe looking for easy carry on. Weekends usually found Dave at Chris ' getting a sub — or in the fourth wing basement coversing with the coke machines. Dave wasn ' t what one would call a high striper in company, but three years running he was the swimming sub squad five striper. Dave ' s service desires have always been known, but down or up he will be a credit to the Navy and our class. DENIS CLYDE TIERNEY Massapequa Park, New York, is the proud hometown of this carefree, easy-going midshipman. Denis always has a cheerful smile and a good word for everybody. Always willing to try a new sport, Denis lists basketball and baseball as his favorites. He was quick to show his athletic abilities, lettering in baseball his sophomore year. Since then he has been in somewhat of a baseball slump, but he has had no other problems. Denis is the average all-American boy even to the point of maintaining a perfect C-average throughout his four years at the Academy. But his ability to win friends is far above average and he will always be a popular fellow and succeed in whatever he chooses to do. ALFREDE. YUDES, JR. Al came to the Academy from Pennsylvania and immediately noticed the difference between Navy and his former coed, alma mater in West Chester. While successfully majoring in Politics and Economics you ' d rarely find Al buried in his books, but it does explain his interest in the Wall Street Journal. Youngster year he discovered rugby and finding it well suited to his taste, he distinguished himself in many scrums during the ensuing years. While complaining of poor vision, it never stopped him from finding attractive feminine companions. With his love for world travel, and the enthusiasm so characterictic of him, Al should find much success in the Naval Service. 429 29TH COMPANY SECOND CLASS Row 1: Cunningham, C. B.; Dzikowski, M.

The biggest move we made was to 5th Battalion and a year with Matt made it well worth the effort. Our bit of wisdom is, " If you drink, don ' t drive, if you do both, stay out of peoples front yards. " Never big, in fact, one of the smallest companies in the Brigade, we will always remember: a friendly company officer " Gentlemen, there will be no mickey mouse in this company and I won ' t play cops and robbers. " Sure, Steve! or the second class who packed up and walked out in the middle of the week; and the first class who saw the new attitude of the academic board first hand.

Ferencie, USN »1 RONNIE LEE BARROW Ron, a product of Greensboro, North Carolina, came to the Naval Academy after attendmg a year at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. A Southerner of the finest tradition - Ron was perhaps not the most intellectual midshipman, but he was one of the liveliest. Anytime anything was going on you could always be sure he was right in the middle of it. His good nature and quick wit will surely keep him well remembered wherever he goes. NORMAN FRANKLIN BROWN Norm comes to the Academy from Providence, Rhode Island. Upon entering. Norm soon realized that Plebe summer was not like his old high school days, but he managed to conform to the demands placed upon him. His smiling face and outward per- sonality have won him many friends throughout the Brigade. Active in the " Log " magazine for three years. Norm was managing editor in his first class year. He has been a great help to many for spiritual needs, taking an active part in the Christian life. He can be found regularly at OCU, NACA and the daily meditations in the Chapel. Whatever field Norm decides to follow, he will make a great contribution to the Naval Service. ROBERT BRADFORD BROWN The Naval Academy has produced many men whose success has seemed predetermined, however, no graduate has had Brad ' s intrinsic capacity for success Coming from humble origins in the backwoods of Idaho, Brad ' s hard, persistent drive has catapulted him into a position admired by his classmates. Often told to slow down and take life easy. Brad would have none of it. His intense motivation and ambition have appeared in everything he has done from sports to academics. He has anchored company soccer, basketball and softball teams through four glorious years. Brad can often be seen working until the wee hours of the morning, polishing shoes and keeping his Supt ' s List grades up. ( MICHAEL GARRETT DAVIS Mike, being a Navy Junior, is at home in almost any state, though he prefers to call California his home. Mike arrived at the Naval Academy six days late. After getting a late appointment but lost no time in catching up with his classmates. It was strenuous at times, but he made it. It was soon evident that he is very parctically minded, as is demonstrated by his ability to build electronic equipment, even though he has trouble with the theory involved in Electrical Engineering. As is evident, one of his favorite hobbies is stereo equipment, and he always keeps up with the latest music. Mike is very well-rounded and will encounter no real problems in his Naval career. THOMAS RUSSELL DAY Tom came to the Academy after a year of college and two years in the USMC. These extra years were of great aid to him in gaining maturity, a diverse background, and a knowledge of the more worldly areas. Perhaps Tom ' s greatest accomplishment was that he got a 2.0. Academics were certainly not his forte but if sweat and desire are any criteria he was 4.0. Though always up for a good time — any time, any place; he also enjoyed discussions on any subject and the simple pleasures of life and nature. Tom ' s greatest ability lies in le adership and a great interest and know- ledge of people. With this ability and his diverse character, success in whatever he pursues is assured. 432 FREDERICKMICHAEL FURLAND Fred, a Navy junior, came to the Naval Academy from Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, but could claim almost anywhere as home. A firm believer in the finer things in life, Fred could always find out ivhere things were happening. Of course, academics and regula- tions weren ' t things to hamper Fred ' s style, as can be shown by his overwhelming QPR and the many weekends at restriction musters. At other times you would most likely find him studying for his Math minor, participating in company or battalion sports, or else hard at work relaxing and reading his " technical books. " Fred ' s winning smile, good natured personality and determination will make him an outstanding naval officer. ROBERTCRAIG HINCKLEY Coming to the Naval Academy from a top-notch private school in New Orleans, Bob immediately assumed the role of company poet laureate and cultural expert. Known to frequently burn the midnight oil in quest of new approaches to electrical science. Bob IS always willing to use his analog computer-like mind to help anyone with an academic problem. A leader from the beginning, " Hincks " IS well liked and respected by everyone. " A hard charger! " , " Born with salt water in his blood. " and " lightning fast on the maneuvering board " are just a few of the admiring comments made about Bob. He has skippered the company knockabout team to three years of victory. A Sunday school teacher for three years. Bob has hopes of eventually becoming a Chaplain. j STEPHEN WAYNE JOSEPHSON Steve came to USNA from Gowanda, New York, a small town near Buffalo. Straight from high school, he took immediately to the Academy life. His academics have always been well above the average. He has played too m the Concert Band and NA-10 along with D B for his first two years, thereafter concentrating entirely on the D B. His other activities have included active participation in the Officers ' Christian Union and NACA. Steve probably is one of the best liked men at the Academy. His constantly bright smile under that mop of strawberry -blonde hair will be missed by many. No matter what branch he chooses he will be a fine officer. LEO JAMES KELLEHER Jim, or Lee as he is better known, came to the Academy from Greensboro, North Carolina, Lee is a very avid sports fan, especially basketball in which he excelled playing for his company team. Academics come very easily to Lee which makes it con- venient, so he can spend more time enjoying what is most dear to him, playing his soul guitar. Never one to turn down a favor, Lee goes out of his way to help a friend or a classmate. After graduation Lee would like to go Navy Air. RALPH HENRY KINDELBERGER After leading an exemplary life in fiigh scfiool. Rock migrated to the Academy from Wlonroevilie, Pennsylvania. He is renowned for fiis phenomenal luck and his bouts with the academic de- partments. His musical tastes in the light classics (Country West- ern) have always been the talk of the company. Rock is perhaps one of 69 ' s most easy-going and jovial members. His good spirits and carefree attitude are the envy of everyone. His freindly bearing, however, is lost on the athletic field where he becomes a fierce competitor. Of outstandingly strong athletic prowess, his tremendous drive, natural intelligence, and individuality will assure him of a very successful career. ROBERT KUGINSKIE " Ski " came to the Academy after two years in the Navy with a great deal of native intelligence and common sense. Academics were never any problem for him (just remember F=ma " ) and he breezed through with a minimum of effort or organization. Applying skills acquired in childhood. Ski fought both Batts and Brigades and well upheld the reputation of Shamokin, Penn- sylvania. Rarely seen without a cigarette. Ski was aslo undisputed coffee drinking champ. In his earlier years he was quite a mover but this came to a screeching halt after 3 c year. Being an ex-submariner, anyway, and not known for his sense of direction (as evidenced by one night in Philadelphia) Ski should have a promising tour on the boats. JAMES WILLIAM LATHAM During his tenure at USNA, " Moose " excelled in every aspect of his education — academics, sports and aptitude. He has distinguished himself as hard worker in all of his endeavors. Jim was always willing to help a friend, as was evidenced by the well worn path to his desk during study hour. His excellence carried into athletics as well. He has been a top man on the Brigade boxing team for four years and always right in there helping those company sports. Moose ' s fine achievement and easygoing per- sonality have gained him the friendship and respect of all those who knew him. He will surely be a welcome asset to the Navy and to all who are associated with him. JAMES BRUCE MclLVAINE Jim came to the Naval Academy from Canton, Ohio. Jim wasted no time in giving the academic departments a good working over by gaining his stars right off, which he has kept right along. In order to keep himself from becoming bored with the easy academics, Jim joined the Cha pel Choir, the Glee Club, the NA-10 and the Concert Band besides being a member of Sigma Pi Sigma. During the afternoon, Jim could be found playing com- pany Softball, football, soccer or volleyball, along with his favorite sport of girl watching, Jim will go a long way in the Silent Service or any louder one he gets into. GEORGE STEVE MclNCHOK After four years of outstanding performances in academics at Derry Area High School in Pennsylvania, Skip came to the Naval Academy eager to pursue these paths of excellence. His grades began to climb as he spent many late hours pouring over his Aero books. Athletically, Skip was one of the permanent fixtures in the weightroom and rounded out his program with Plebe and J.V. football, company Softball and volleyball. It soon became evident that as hard as Chok worked, he still knew how to relax on weekends. His determination, dedication and straightforwardness will surely make him a leader of men and a definite asset to the service. 434 MICHAEL CHARLES MORGAN Mike came to the Academy from Camp Pendleton, California, .• ere his father was a Navy dentist. Plebe year was no real roblem for Mike and seemed not to interfere with his studies. Tne grades he received were amazing when the Math courses he took are considered. Mike has gotten many thanks from everyone he has helped in academics. As for athletics, he once proved his great daring and skill in skiing to a group of friends and will also be remembered for being probably the heaviest man on the lightweight football team. Last, but certainly not least, Mike was a definite Davy Crockett. Who else would stay up until two in the morning tying fishing flies? ROBERT ROY NEUMANN Hud came to USNA from Hudson, Ohio. He found no problems with Plebe year and even found enough time to help his " boss " earn enough money to get married. Never one to become worried over academics. Hud ' s favorite place was on the athletic field. He hardly missed playing a single sport and was a valuable player m them all. Always friendly and outgoing. Hud easily became one of the most popular men in the company. Hud was always ready for a good stunt and organized more than his share ot them. Naval professionalism came easy to him and navigation and seamanship were enjoyable games. Ready for anything, and a born leader. Bob will be a valued addition to the fleet. PAUL DENNIS OBERENDER Ob ' s hails from nearby Baltimore where two years in the Naval Reserves was not enough Navy for him. He pursued his Navy ways still further and after one unsuccessful attempt found his way to Annapolis with the Class of ' 69. A sailor ' s sailor. Spring and Fall afternoons would find him participating in his one true joy, sailing With the ocean racing division of the Sailing Squadron. While never ivorking excessively hard, he was always able to get the job done and done well. This ability along with a desire to do should find him a welcome addition wherever in the Navy he goes. WALTER WINFIELD PRICE, III When he was just entering second grade, Winn ' s father ( ' 42) was transferred to the Naval Academy. From that time on he had his sights set on the goal of graduating from the trade school. It was sometimes an elusive goal, as Winn was never anxious to let studying interfere with his education. Academic skirmishes were as frequent as 4 week grading periods. However, Winn left his mark on the tennis counts, losing once in four seasons of intramural competition. An engrained love of the sea left him as one of the almost extinct breed of voluntary surface liners. June of ' 69 will find a dedicated Ensign with his sights on a new target. ) A t WILLIAM A. PROSES Bill, better known as Pro. has brought the heart of Queens, New York, tumbling down on Annapolis. He has delighted us all with his cheerful disposition, unending humor, and all the un- believable tales of life in the big city. With two years of schooling and ROTC training at City College of New York, he entered the Naval Academy fully prepared to excel as a midshipman. He is an ardent worker and has managed to keep himself near the top of the class in academics and aptitude. He is just as adept in his athletic endeavors, excelling in swimming, fieldball and weight- lifting. With the respect and lasting friendships that he has gained. Bill enters the fleet with best wishes from all who have known him. WILLIAM FREDERICK SIGLER Bill, the pride of Chesapeake, entered the Academy after a successful year at the University of Baltimore. A natural athlete. Bill participated in varsity soccer until the end of second class year when he was sidelined due to an ankle injury. An affable and practical-minded individual. Bill will always be remembered for his charm with the opposite sex. Known as " Cass " by his close friends, Sigs, spent many an evening making life a little brighter for the Belles of Baltimore. A serious student. Bill spent many nights burning the midnight oil. With his professional attitude and high motivation. Bill will make an outstanding officer during his service career. MARK ARIME UIMHJEM Mark comes from Staten Island, New York where he was graduated from Curtis High School with mediocre grades and a keen interest in Mathematics and a career as a Naval Officer. After nearly bilging out Plebe year, " Uns " succeeded in making Dean ' s List and Supt ' s List for several semesters while pursuing a Math minor. When not engaged in the athletics of the intramural program. Mark could be found studying late into the night or at the computer lab. After crossing swords with the Executive Department, he worked hard toward a naval career, and was always willing to do a friend a favor. His willingness to work hard will serve him in good stead after graduation and in years to come. CHARLES RAYMOND WIENKE " Chuck " Wienke arrived at USNA from Kouts, Indiana via one year in the fleet and one year at the Naval Academy Prep School. A natural athlete. Chuck played Plebe baseball before lending his prowess to the company softball, soccer and basketball teams and It was a rare afternoon that didn ' t see him on a court or field somewhere. Although he got off to a slow start. Chuck kept right on the books and managed to keep the Electrical Science De- partment from getting too far out of hand, even if it meant studying beyond his normal bedtime of 10:30 p.m. Chuck is a combination of ability and personality that will make him one of USNA ' s finest graduates.

The spectacle which drew all hands to the wardroom was called Laugh-In. On weekends the Goldie Hawn Fan Club dispersed to the corners of the world (or at least to Rip ' s) in a grand prix assortment of vehicles, from an old plymouth station wagon to the latest ' Vette with a 427 and 4 on the floor. That is except for two men: one was a high striper, the other was class A ' d. The highlight of the year was the addition of a personally autographed picture of Goldie and a handwritten (printed?) note to our Goldie gallery. Company sports lacked, but not for lack of ability. The fact is that 7 firsties lettered and 4 others played varsity sports. After graduation Club 30 will again disperse never to be the same for 67% of all firsties will be getting married and another 13% are uncertain. SPRING SET: CO. CDR: D. A. Townsend; SUB-CDR G L.

Although not academically inclined he made the Supt ' s List more often than not. He has become well known for his avid interest in scuba diving and this past year served as safety officer of the USNA Scuba Club. Sportswise, Jim never made a varsity squad but played batt football and squash. Most afternoons he spent out on the Bay on his beloved YP, where he became very proficient in the magic of naval tactics. A happy-go-lucky guy, Bango will long be remembered for being faithful to his sweetheart back home. JAMES ERNEST BASKERVILLE B-ville came to Navy from Joliet, Illinois where he had developed the fine art of throwing a baseball. This arm he devoted to the Plebe baseball team, but for some reason he could not coordinate it with the other one to achieve the required pro- ficiency in the pool. Thus Jim spent many afternoons as a member of the swimming sub squad. Besides baseball and sub squad, the Hound applied his athletic talents to company basketball and Softball. Although not an academic giant, he has spent many hours diligently pursuing a Mechanical Engineering minor. He has been a member of the Radio Club and has an avid interest in electronics. Jim will be an asset to whatever field he chooses. RICHARD EARL BATDORF Upon graduation from high school in Bryan, Ohio, Rich came directly to the Naval Academy. He excelled academically his entire time as a midshipman and stars and Supt ' s List were a matter of course for him even while actively participating in the overload and majors program in Physics. While at the Academy, Rich has become an avid sailor and tries to spend as much time as possible away from the hall and out on the water. He also devoted several seasons to football and played both plebe and junior varsity basketball. Whatever branch of the service Rich chooses he is certain to be a success. WILLIAM DOUGLAS BERRY Doug came to Navy from St. Petersburg and he found it easy to adapt to the military way, even though he kept a liking for Florida beaches. Although not a " slash " , Doug ' s grades were always respectable and he could usually spare time during study hour to shoot the breeze. He was a member of the Foreign Relations Club and gravitated towards contact sports, playing company fieldball, Softball and playing on the Brigade champion battalion football team as a plebe. Doug never had any doubt about his service selection. The Marine Corps was perhaps the only thing he showed more enthusiasm for than attending, or more often planning, the company ' s next party. Both interests should serve him well in future years. i JOHN W. COM RAD " Cons " , who came from the beaches of Miami, was greatly surprised at finding no fraternities here at Ol ' Navy. He played his one year with the Plebes and then went on to the " Little Blue. " John IS said by many to be the biggest 150 lb. football player m the country. In the off season he could always be found in the Field House weight room lifting anything that could be lifted. Cons who never let studies interfere with 2 c T.V. was not one to limit his assets to the academic life at Navy. He spent four long hard years looking for his Porsche. One of the few men known not to let Navy stifle his night life. John carries with him to the fleet all the attributes that will rank him among the best officers m the Navy. JAMES ALAN DAVIDSON Jimmy came to Navy straight out of high school in Chicago. Right from the start he took an active and dynamic interest in life here. He quickly marked himself as a scholar Plebe year by earning a 4.00 his first semester. He proved that he was more than an academic slash though by winning a place on the Plebe fencing team, singing in the Chapel Choir and holding the position of Battalion Commander. Success has followed success for Jim, reaching its zenith second class year when he won All-American honors in fencing and was selected as a Trident Scholar. One of the most personable people at the Academy, Jim cannot help but make a fine officer. AUGUSTO JAMES DIONIZIO, JR. " Dizz " was known for his diversity of activities, which included Catholic Choir, French Club, the Reception Committee and the Sailing Squadron. His abilities as a quarterback were much sought after by the company light-heavyweight football team. These activities were complimented by a serious academic effort, which often kept him up to the early morning hours. Classmates would often ask him for help with the books. Weekends round out a midshipman ' s life, and Dizz knew how to round out the weekends. Classmates often relied on him for a good time, he was a great organizer and made the " System " work for him. MICHAEL FRANCIS DONILON Mike was born, it seems for the water and boats so Navy was his natural first choice. A Navy junior, he came here out of high school and quickly found his place on the sailing team, making numerous trips to Newport via Bermuda. Besides his maritime interests the " mover " found a place on the Plebe tennis team as well as such varied activities on the Log, NAFAC and the battalion squash team. One of the easiest going guys around, Mike never sweated the academics and was always free for a good time on the weekends. Even for this though, he flirted regularly with the Supt ' s List, which seemed always one step ahead. Mike will make it big wherever he goes in the fleet. GERALD LEE GALLAGHER " Gaigs " , better known as " Mouse " or " Runt " , came to thr Academy from Tampa, Florida, Small in size, a fact he is nevti permitted to forget, Jer has enough drive and determination to take him wherever he chooses. A quick mind, that has kept him on the Supt ' s or Dean ' s Lists, and fine physical condition, that has made him Navy ' s number one man in Free Exercise and Tram- poline, are only two of his many attributes. One of the infamous " Sportin ' Crew " , you can always count on Jer for a good time, although his second class year he spent a lot of time making up for his " Little Red Midget. " The Navy awaits one of the finest individuals the Academy has to offer. MAURICE ALFRED GAUTHIER Born and raised in New England, Maury came to Navy from St. John ' s Prep, where he graduated with honors. His excellence in French accompanied by his exceptional conversational ability ranked high among his talents. When he wasn ' t singing with the Glee Club, you might find Maury writing a letter to a girl or dreaming of sports cars on the blue trampoline. Best remembered for his Pensacola pastime, Maury was a favorite-son and a noted authority on several of our finer Officer ' s Clubs. He is an avid intramural fan, excelling in rugby and handball. His combined talents, experience and devotion in getting the job done, ac- companied by his traits of a competent leader and an accom- plished gentleman insure his future success. 440 MICHAEL ALLEN HARBIN " Harbs " hails us from the land of Sunny Arizona, His diver- sified interests and adequate knowledge in subjects ranging from Beethoven and Da Vinci, to how to make enchiladas, made him a valuable source to his classmates and friends. When they came, he was always willing to help, and when he didn ' t know, he would drop his work to find out. Mike found few difficulties in academics, except for an occasional run in with Mat. Energetically devoted to crew, he put on 30 lbs. " Harbs " overcame every hurdle he encountered durmg his four year sojourn at Annapolis — except for the winter climate. GARY WAYNE HEIN Gary comes from the beautiful Rocky Mountain city of Missoula, Montana. " Butch " found the realm of Aeronautical academics much to his fancy and made the Supt ' s List almost every semester. When there was work to be done, Gary could always be found right in the middle helping out. His easy-going ways made him many friends here at Navy. His presence on the athletic teams was always m big demand. The cowboy from the " Big Sky Country " will be an able, welcome addition to the Naval Service. CHARLES ARTHUR HOFFMAN By the time he arrived at Navy, Chuck had already gone to submarine school, where he graduated first in his class and had spent a year m college. Since Plebe summer Chuck has developed an extraordinary interest in computers and programming. He has a reputation for knowing everything in the books and a great deal which is not, and he is always willing to set aside his own work to help out someone else with a program. But computers are not his only interest. Chuck has participated in several outdoor intramural sports, including soccer, football and rugby, his fa- vorite. He enjoys participation in choir and has been a member of the German Club and the YP Squadron. CLINTON NOLAN HOLEMAN Clint came to the Naval Academy from Fullerton, California, where he attended Pullerton Junior College for one year. He is known to many of his classmates as cowboy Clint and can be seen on leave wearing appropriate western attire. He is a staunch member of the Protestant Chapel Choir, where he attempts to integrate his strong western vocabulary of " yahoo, " and " get along little doggie, " with the joyous singing of hymns. He expends his energy sleeping and playing soccer and fieldball. His qualities of stubborness, confidence and professional competence will aid him tremendously in his naval career. I A FREDRICK EUGENE JONES Fred hails from Western Pennsylvania and came to the Naval Academy via NAPS. A great lover of sports, at almost any time he was willing to play, especially basketball, football or baseball- The only trouble he had was swimming, and many a winter afternoon would find him in the Natatorium practicing. Academics were no problem, and Fred was almost always to be found on the Supt ' s List. It seemed as if he never met anyone who wasn ' t his friend, even though he was known for his quiet manner. In fact, it was once said that compared to Fred, Mt. Rushmore was a loquacious specta cle. JAMES DENIS KIRBY " Kirbs " , as he was known by his friends, left no doubt as to where he was from by his New York accent and his " Broadway Shuffle " through the halls of " Mother B. " Jim came to us after graduating with honors from Mater Christi High School in the heart of the " Big City, " His interests were varied, but his favorite was crooning with the Glee Club, He was an avid intramural fai., playing " Bag-it " Softball and heavyweight football for four years, getting heavier each year. Coming to Navy gave Jim many new horizons, especially his discovery of a deep-seated preference for Southern Belles. His sincerity and high-spirited ambition, com- ouflaged by his easy-going nature, has won him many friends and will continue to lead to a brilliant career. RICHARD WESLEY MARTIN Rich came to the U. S. Naval Academy from Erie, Penn- sylvania. Desiring to further his already successful harrier career, he bacame a varsity member of the cross country and track teams. During many fall afternoons, he enjoyed the calmness of the outdoors while running at the golf course. His tenacious desire to run to win culminated in his earning the N-star. After becoming qualified as a Navy sucba diver, he turned his energies toward the Scuba Club. From instructing prereveille scuba classes to par- ticipating in ocean dives, he vigorously pursued this nautical pastime. Rich was a Mathematics minor with an interest in the Foreign Relations Club. His determination and spirit will mark him as a valuable man. CHARLES WILLIAM NATION Charlie Nation entered the Naval Academy after gaming a firm academic background and achieving a notable athletic career in baseball, basketball and football at Salisbury School. However, his athletic spirit was too restless so he sought for a new kind of sport. Crew became his new challenge. Charlie spent many afternoons away from Bancroft Hall participating in Plebe crew and later as an upperclassman on the varsity crew team. At the end of 3 c year, Charlie managed to excel in academics and make Supt ' s List, With his spirit and strong determination Charlie will obtain any goal that he seeks. DENNIS WILLIAM PLANK Denny left the good times at Penn State University for the challenging atmosphere of the Naval Academy. A native of Williamsport, Pennsylvania, he found his NROTC training invalu- able as he endeavored to meet the " blood, sweat, toil and tears " of the months ahead. Denny soon found that the academic frontier was a vastly unexplored region-conquered only by many long hours of study. This did not, however, limit his extracurricular activities as he took an active part in the Foreign Relations Club and a variety of intramural sports. Denny ' s strong concern with professionalism coupled with his serious attitude throughout his four years at the Academy, ensure him a successful future in whatever service he chooses. CHARLES ROBERT PROVINI Probs, came bouncing into Bancroft Hall from the Prep School at Bainbridge after turning down numerous basketball and baseball scholarships. Coming from Newark, (Mew Jersey he was never one to let the tough life at Navy bother him. Finding a certain lack of nightlife here, he succeeded in making his own. Among his notable achievements was an unusually high score on the second class T.V. test. Never one for the studies, he devoted many long hours to basketball and baseball, winning a letter m basketball as a Youngster. His leadership and quick wit will be a welcome addition to any part of the Navy he chooses. 442 I rvr. WILLIAM LAMARR ROBINSON A Navy junior, Robbie was born in Washington, D. C. but came to the Academy after five years in Hawaii, including one at the university. The hardest transition from the beach boy hfe was wearing shoes; after that was mastered, the system was easy. Except for second class year, academics were little problem as Robbie wavered off and on the Supt ' s List and rare was the weekend spent answering to the BOOW ' s muster. Weekends were better spent indulging in the finer, though usually non-reg, things in life. Robbie contributed heavily to company sports teams, especially basketball which he had played in college. Robbie ' s easy going personality and ability to handle anything will serve him well in the future. DAVID ALAN TOWNSEND From the farmlands of Ohio, Dave was always one of the best liked in the company, a great sport and an all-around good guy. Nothing could get him down and he smiled more often than not. Singing was his second love and through the Glee Club and choir. It led him to many good times, his first love. An extracurricular activities major, Dave had so many good deals we thought he wrote his own movement orders. Academics were no problem for Dave and he used his time, when he was around, for more important things. He was quick to laugh, always ready to listen and always eager to help out. Dave will succeed in anything he attempts. JOSEPH ARTHUR WELLINGTON Having overcome the initial shock of Plebe year, Joe initiated his drive to succeed in all aspects of Academy life. He assumed the name of " Duke " , which his classmates had dubbed him. As a member of the Log Staff and the Ring Committee, Duke seemed to be most representative of our class and its spirit. Having firmly grasped academics, he turned to the Severn River where he pulled an oar for the lightweight varsity crew. By the end of Youngster year his determination paid off and he earned his letter. Whether it be in crew, at academics, or during his career, Joe ' s drive and determination will always put him ahead. GEORGE ALFRED WILDRIDGE, JR. Buck came to Navy from Newark, New York. Through his four years here he has shown great enthusiasm for gymnastics. Starting with the first battalion team, where he took first place on the rings and second place on the high bar, he has been out for gym for all but one set, working his way up to varsity level. But his interest has not been in gymnastics alone. He has participated throughout in Antiphonal Choir and has sailed on the schooner Freedom. Academically, his interests lie in mechanics. Mathematics and Marine Engineering and he is particularly interested in hull design. Buck IS best known for working hard at everything from aca- demics to sports and extracurricular activities. -H-l a —T ' ,£ . :.,«aL FALL SET: BATT-CDR: D. G. Buell; SUB-CDR: J. L.

Plebe year, Weaver commented on our Christmas party: " What it lacked in discretion, it made up for in enthusiasm! " And from that point on, we turned our enthusiasm from p-rades to parties (how many times 1 c year did our p-rade standing beat our company number?). Even as early as Youngster year, we learned Alex usually had something cooking for the weekend, whether it was an " official " hayride or an " unofficial " blast with the Legionnaires. The skiers among us managed to spread their fame; if not on the slopes, then in the Bavarian Room. And who can forget the " Crazy Spaniard " with his OAS contingent, plotting everything from parties to revolutions. At home there was the " Nurses " , the " House, " and even a helpful librarian to take memorable pictures (right. Buck?). Of course, it wasn ' t all parties, but who wants to remember anything else? SPRING SET: CO. CDR: J. R. Shinovlch; SUBCDR: D G Deininger; CPO: L. I. Eckerman. 31st COMPANY OFFICER LT F. O. Fay, USN DAVID JOHN ALEXANDER Dave, being a Navy Junior, came to the Academy well oriented toward a service career. Best known to his classmates for his organizational ability, there was never a social event he didn ' t attend and seldom one he hadn ' t planned. Having little trouble with academics, until final exams, Dave had the repeated dis- tinction of just missing the next higher mark. Being athletically minded, afternoons found him on the golf course, supporting teams or wrestling with his mattress. When not lost in academics at night there was always something cooking and could usually be smelled throughout the wing. A hard worker with a serious purpose, Dave can be assured of a bright future in the Navy. HUBERT EDWARD ARCHAMBO, JR. Arch came to the Academy straight from Northeast Catholic High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Deeply seeded in his background is a love of the summers spent at the beach - Ocean City on the New Jersey seashore. Maybe this is where he developed the carefree, light-hearted attitude which followed him through the halls around here for four years. Arch spent the majority of his athletic time playing company football and Softball. During his entire stay here he has always excelled first as an individual. At all times a great procrastinator, he never did today what could be put off until tomorrow, unless it had something to do with sleeping. Arch definitely shows the makings of a career officer. .1 JOHN STEVENS BUCKINGHAM A product of Southern California, Buck came to Navy straight from San Marino High School. Whether the topic of discussion be surfing, girls or skiing, he is quick to defend the merits of the West Coast. The baseball team had his services for two years before Buck decided to devote more time to academics. This did not stop him, however, from contributing greatly to the company heavies ' many victories or helping out in most of our class projects. Buck ' s friendliness, outgoing personality and willingness to help anyone in need have earned him many lasting friendships. No matter what branch of the service he enters, there is little doubt that Buck ' s contributions will be many and of high quality. STEPHEN MARKS BURKHALTER Steve came to the Academy straight from Tappan Zee High School where he had been an outstanding athlete in cross country and track. As a Plebe he won his numerals in cross country, indoor and outdoor track and escape some of the rigors of Plebe year on the training tables. Not one to sacrifice grades for sports, Steve has also excelled in academics, being named to the Supt ' s List and Dean ' s List, despite long hours in the Chemistry labs. Although studies and athletics took up much of his time at USNA, Steve always found time for the Saturday night marathon, liberty, and that special girl back home. Steve is a product of which USNA can be justly proud. JOHN FARLEY GATES, JR. " Farley " hailed to the Academy from the Gulf Coast city of Beaumont, Texas with surfboard in hand. The upper class quickly displaced thoughts of surf as he buckled down to life at Navy. Following his Texas inclinations he settled on a Bull major, and m Its pursuit he became a regular on the Dean ' s and Supt ' s Lists. Always searching for new ideas the demands of the Academy and the opportunities of the Washington area never awed John, but served as a constant challenge. If anyone ever wanted to discuss any topic, he was the man to see. In Farley, the fleet will gain an enthusiastic and inquisitive mind devoted to winning and jobs well done. MICHAEL J. CROSS After a year at the University of California at Berkeley, Mike came to the shores of the Severn where he could be more than the typical College Joe and through his tenure has maintained the cool which separates the leaders from the followers. The fiercest of competitors, he has shown his skill on the athletic field, in the classroom and in the drag houses of old Annapolis. Mike ' s easy going nature and devotion to duty have made him popular and well respected. Mike ' s professionalism, agility and personal pride will carry him a long way in any field of the Naval Service. 448 ( I TERRENCE VLADIMIR CULLEN A son of California, Terry longs for the sand and the surf that he left four long years ago. He came to the Academy well prepared for success after two v ars m the Naval Reserve and a year at the University of Santa Clara. Since arriving in Annapolis, Terry has kept himself busy with academics while participating extensively in company sports. If you can ' t find him at the books or on the athletic field he will probably be selling Christmas cards, sched- uling the members of the Class of 1969 for Lucky Bag pictures or working on a company project. Terry ' s determination and his fine organizational ability will make him an asset to the operational Navy. WALTER JAMES CUMMIIMGS r Walt arrived on the shores of the Severn within forty-five minutes of his departure from his home in Silver Spring, Maryland. This proved to be priceless throughout his four year residence by the Bay. Tall, soft-spoken, well-mannered and poised describe Walt but his conscientiousness prevails. All he undertakes is maturely organized and he has the ability of selecting the most important segments of any task. Hence, he has transformed unnecessary hours of study time into ones of worthwhile activity. Of these, the " pad " is very dear to him. Walt has demonstrated a high motiva- tion concerning his future in the Naval Service and there is little doubt that his capabilities will take him far in any field he enters. DAVID GEORGE DEININGER " Deins " made his initial impression at USNA on the ea rdrums of unsuspecting upperclass who became victims of his verbal carry on during Plebe year. This faculty for vocal devastation later served him well in two Musical Clubs Shows, the debate team and the Plebe Detail. Rapidly having gained a reputation as a slash, his room became the source of good gouge and Swiss cheese, the latter being imported from his hometown of Monroe, Wisconsin. Never at a loss for a few thousand words, he put talents gained as Bull major to good use First Class year when he served as Editor of Trident Magazine. The fleet will gain from this young man a quick mind and a clear voice. RODOLFO ECHEVERRIA Rudy, as he is known to his classmates, gave up the mild climate and good living of Costa Rica, for the rigorous and disciplined Academy life. Finding soccer a welcome substitute for drill he participated in the sport for three years. Never worried by academics, Rudy completed a Mechanical Engineering major while advocating his theory that grades are inversely proportional to study time. The fact that he is very patriotic towards his homeland was asserted by the numerous posters and flags displayed around his room. An admirable ambassador of his country Rudy was quick to discuss world events or foreign policy. Dedication and hard work assure him of a bright future at home. pap F LAWRENCE IVAN ECKERMAN After trying ROTC at the University of Santa Clara, Larry decided that the Navy was his real calling. Although recruited tor football, Larry ' s interests in contact sports soon turned to rugby and fieldball. Every year found Larry devoting himself to more and more activities. On a given week Larry could be found working on anything from pop music concerts to company hayrides. Never one to waste time, Larry always manages to squeeze more into a day than anyone thought possible. Larry ' s practical ability and sound judgement will assure continued suc- cess throughout his career. CRAIG WARD ELMORE Coming straight from Brooklyn Technical High School in New York, " Duke " found his four years at the Naval Academy to be quite a change from big city life. Few knew the big blue teams better than him and rarely would he turn down a sporting event. Weekdays found his own performance on the company softball team no less than great. Academics proved no problem to Duke and he found much time to enjoy his big interest in popular music - a topic in which he is an acknowledged expert. Always ready for a good time, he has many friends throughout the class. Un- doubtedly his fine ability will prove a welcome addition to the fleet. i r THOMAS EDWARD FAHY Tom came to the Academy after serving a year in the Naval Reserve. A Navy junior, he arrived from Phoenix to continue in the footsteps of his father. Track was his sport as he set numerous Plebe records and continued into the varsity, A standout also in intramural squash and academics, Tom has been both on the Supt ' s List and the Dean ' s List, despite the great deal of the time spent as Battalion Honor Representative. His hobbies ranged from winding his string ball m his spare time to dragging one of his many female admirers. Never one to be outdone, Tom could be both sincere and hardworking, leaving an impression felt by all. With his attitude and drive, Tom will go afar. ANTHONY MICHAEL FORTINO Tony or " Buddha " as he is known in his hometown of West Orange, New Jersey, will always be remembered for his leadership, athletic ability and sense of humor. An excellent athlete, Tony played Plebe and varsity baseball and was a strong asset to company intramural teams. His leadership and winning spirit was immediately evident to all who played with or against him. If Tony wasn ' t in his room putting in the many hours of studying, for which he was well known, he could usually be found with the Italian delegation in the First Regiment. Tony ' s ability to get along well with everyone will continue to aid him in whatever he undertakes in the future. DENNIS WILLIAM GLASS Denny was graduated from Greenville High School and joined the Nittany Lions in the center of his home state, Pennsylvania. In NROTC Denny couldn ' t pass up the chance of switching to the Naval Academy, the birthplace of great officers. Under the " hard but fair " leadership of Leo Francis, Denny became a model midshipman. He kept an outstanding attitude throughout his career as a mid and was liked and respected by exeryone who knew him. A devotee of basketball, girls, bull and Corvettes, not necessarily in that order, Denny kept busy. His desire and ability to complete a job well done, and magnetic personality will make him a success in the Navy and anything else he might choose. RALPH JOHN HOFFMAN " Hoff " , a Navy Junior, came to the Naval Academy right out of high school with the highest hopes for a future in the Navy. His grades were never anything worth mentioning and as for sports, he played varsity soccer for three years until he was retired. Never really trying to get involved in things, he nonetheless usually found himself entangled in Naval Academy life, first as the company artist Plebe year and then later gaming different and perhaps more dubious titles. Whatever the branch of the Naval Service Ralph goes into, he will carry with him his sureness and certainly of character that will make him a success. 450 V WILLIAM ROBERT JAMES Bob arrived at the Naval Academy from Portland, Oregon and Madison High School. A football standout there, he traded his cleats for an oar Plebe summer and became an integral part of the heavyweight crew team. After Plebe year, however, academics became more important, and he gave up crew for company heavyweight football. Although not letting studies stand in the way of a good time. Bob still frequented the Supt ' s List. Weekends would usually find him with a smiling pretty girl taking in a movie, a sporting event or just walking in the Yard. A dedicated midshipman and a devout Christian, Bob in his quiet sincere manner has won the respect and friendship of all his associates. JAMES MARTIN KENNEY After graduating from Darien High School, Jim arrived at Navy to begin his stay on the Severn. Never one to let books interfere with a good time, he still managed to be on the Supt ' s and sometimes the Dean ' s Lists. Due to a strong dislike for marching and because of outstanding athletic ability, Jim has been an integral member of Navy ' s track team since Plebe year. Weekends found Jim enjoying himself skiing or in the company of some young lady. Jim will be best remembered by his classmates for his unpredictable wit and winning personality. The Navy will be the beneneficiary of a great talent in whatever branch Jim decides to enter. J . W MICHAEL FRANCIS LETTIER! After graduation from Brooklyn Technical High School in New York, Mike spent a year at Columbia Prep before getting a room in Bancroft. His athletic ability earned him much respect and many friends in the Brigade. He won a letter in baseball as the starting first baseman during Youngster year, and he saw action both as quarterback and tight end on the varsity football team. It was never a dull time to be around Mike. During leave his house was open to all, and any guest found a warm welcome and two of the greatest parents and hosts anywhere. Certainly Mike ' s wonderful personality and dedication to being the best will make a success of his future. JOHN ROBERT SHINOVICH, JR. John, or Doc as most of his classmates call him, came to Navy directly from Lew Wallace High School in Gary, Indiana. A fine athlete in high school. Doc had no trouble in aiding the Plebe baseball team with his talents. He made the traveling team his Youngster year but the rigors of Navy life made him turn in his catcher ' s mitt for an intramural basketball. The books were no strangers to Doc and he had little trouble excelling, although he was never one to turn down a good time. Doc ' s capacity to lead, enhanched by his winning spirit has made him an outstanding midshipman. We are sure that these qualities will insure him a fine career. PETER MACARTNEY SMITH Oklahoma is proud to have Pete representing her here in Annapohs. He came to the Academy straight from the arms of Northwest Classen High School In Oklahoma City. It didn ' t take him long to find out that the Academy life was very demanding but this didn ' t hinder Pete ' s desire to excel. By validating several courses, he made room for the electives necessary to complete a major in Electrical Science. When not studying, Pete could be found somewhere in the company area " fixin ' it " . He can repair almost anything from a broken lock to an inoperative stereo set. Any time a helping hand is needed, Pete is willing to assist. Pete ' s ability and desire make his success as a naval officer a certainty. SI I niggli: JAMES THOMAS TURNER Zuke, as he is affectionately called, came to good ol ' USNA from Davenport, Iowa after a year at St. Ambrose. Never known as an academic slash, Zuke spent his waking hours (which weren ' t many) on more important things, like the weaker sex; big ones, small ones, kind ones, fine ones. Zuke wants to see them all before he takes the final plunge. Always active, Zuke is a wholehearted backer of intramural sports. To prove his physical prowess he gave up two weeks of summer leave to go to Jungle Warfare School Although as yet uncertain as to service selection, our balding hero should make a fine officer. MARK ALAN WARNER " Red " will always have a place in the memories of the members of the Class of ' 69. One of the most likeable, easygoing and fun loving Buckeyes that Chillicothe, Ohio ever sent to the Naval Academy, Red was truly an asset to our class. Whether on the basketball court, in the hall, or on a weekend, he was always in the thick of things. He was usually in the thick of things with the books, too, although he was not exactly a frequenter of the Supt ' s List. If Red keeps his winning attitude and competitive spirit ht will be an asset to the fleet, and can look forward to a bright career. THOMAS JUDSON WILKES, JR. " Wendell " will always have fond memories of his four years at the Naval Academy. After arriving from Orlando, Florida, he wasted no time in making the most of Youngster year. Leading the varsity rifle team to the 1968 national championship, he was named to the All-American team as only a sophomore. Through- out his three years on the varsity, Wendell set numerous records and was always a standout. Academically Wendell never let down either, except maybe once. He could always be counted on to give his best effort for the company, even if it meant being thrown out of a Softball game for being overly enthusiastic. Undoubtedly his outgoing personality and tremendous ability will be welcome to the fleet. MICHAEL EUGENE WULF A native of upstate New York, Mike brought his bright humor and easy-going manner to USNA directly from Tonowanda High. A swimmer, " The Wulf " splashed for a season for Navy but then chose to devote more time to academics. Athletics, however, remained important in his Academy life. A solid member of the company softball and " heavies " teams, never a day passed when he would not be absorbed in the morning ' s sports news. When not on liberty, Mike devoted many hours to studying - in the horizontal position. He will always be remembered as a staunch competitor at the wardroom " T.V. marathons. " Mike ' s ever- present enthusiasm, outgoing personality and way with people brings the friendship and respect of all who know him. 452 32nd Company FALL SET: CDR: S. W.

M While there is a stigma of supression by the Naval Academy of individuality, 32 has managed to produce a wide variety of personalities which have combined to form a sound and lasting company spirit. Although our company possesses only a handful of varsity athletes, our intramural teams have captured regimental titles in basketball and fieldball as well as fine winning seasons in others. Sixty-Niners of the 32nd Company were for the first time in the four year tenure exposed to a rational and realistic company officer. After the initial scare caused by the discovery that he was a wearer of green, we developed a sound working relationship and it has been a privilege working with a man who fits the title of " benevolent monarch. " Although no one regrets leaving the strife torn battlefield of the passageways of Bancroft Hall, time will strengthen the bonds which have begun here. Thirty-second Company was color company for 1969. SPRING SET: CO. CDR: R. G. Kirkland; SUB-CDR T S. Wanner; CPO: S. A. Edwards. 32nd COMPANY OFFICER MAJ W. C.

Paul, affectionately identified as " Walrus " , came to us from Pennsylvania Dutch Country. A fine competitor in all fields, Paul can always be counted on for a battle, whether it be an intra- company wrestling match, a bridge game or a discussion on logic. It IS no wonder that the squash courts became Paul ' s first love, where, as a varsity player, he spent a good deal of time both physically and mentally. But Paul ' s athletic prowess does not end with squash. He can always find time for a tennis match and is renowned for his game of ping pong. Although Paul ' s ideas don ' t always conform to those of the common norm, he is highly respected for his consistency and inexhorable adherence to prin- ciple. JOHN EDWARD ALLEN Bringing with him a ready smile and a quick wit, John came to the Academy from Pleasantville, New Jersey. Physically though and a walking sports almanac, he always put his heart into any athletic contest. He played hard in intramural soccer and football, but rugby, with its hard-hitting fast action, was his favorite competitive sport. John, also proving an able match for the academic department, often won a spot on the Supt ' s List and his desire and ingenuity gained him the editorship of the Trident Calendar. His perseverance and hard work should guarantee John success on any goal he sets. MICHAEL JOHN BOHOSKEY Mike, or Monk, as he is known affectionately by his more outgoing classmates, escaped to the Academy from Yakima, Washington, Known more for its apples than its midshipmen. While a Plebe he acheived a first team billet as a wrestler, but in later years was known more for his fluctuating grades and artistic abilities than his achievements as a " mat man. " A good all-around athlete, Mike ' s interests ranged along the continuum from football to his first love of pocket billiards, in which he was undefeated in regulation play. Mikes quick mind and sense of humor will prove to stimulate all those he meets in his future as a naval officer. DAVID GRAHAM BUELL Dave came to us from New Mexico Military Institute following in the footsteps of his Dad. Eager to excel, Dave readily adapted himself to the system and earned the respect of all who knew him. His academic efforts paid off with consistent Supt ' s List and occasional Dean ' s List awards. While during the week Dave was always cracking a book, weekends were always left for pleasure and the company of a charming young lady. Dave will long be remembered by his classmates for his outstanding leadership qualities, his handstands in the hall, and those ever present puns. Whatever the service holds for Dave ' s future, the Navy will soon realize that they couldn ' t have asked for a finer officer. THOMAS JOSEPH CAVANAUGH, III Tom, a native of East Meadow, New York, came to the Academy from high school. After Plebe summer he set his sights on academic excellence and has been a regular on the Dean ' s List. After meeting with continued success in the Math Department, Tom elected to strike for a double Math major. Classmates could frequently be found in his room as he shared his abilities with those in need. His strong competitive spirit and love of sports were demonstrated on the Brigade championship squash team. His many interests and radiant personality will follow him in whatever field he chooses. Tom will always win the fremdship and respect of those he meets as he has with all of us. KEVIN SEAN CLANCY Coming to Navy by way of various eastern cities, Kevin claims the Oxnard Jettys, California as his home. Although similar to Harold Bobbins ' fictitious character " Fat Cat " , Clanc was as fierce a competitor on the athletic field as he was a bubbling personality elsewhere. One of the best surfers in the Academy, Kevin ' s ability to catch the big wave was surpassed only by his knack for " riding the curve " , which usually left him m the low B grade-range when the tide roiled out. Lucky enough to meet a local girl of his hking, Kevm found weekends to be much more enjoyable than his less fortunate classmates, in that his record of 30 out of 32 weekends to D. C. in a year is unbeaten. STEPHEN WILLIAM COMISKEY From his Don Juan haircut down to his East Coast body surfer ' s knots, Steve is all mid. Hailing from the wilds of Long Island, where it is rumored that boys are born wearing wrestling gear and carrying lacrosse sticks, Steve proved to be no dis- appointment. Playing three varsity sports, however, took its toll on the wrestling captain ' s grades, as he always seemed closer to the Commandant ' s List than the Sup ' s List. Known almost as much for his piercing laugh and his beautiful girl ' s cookies, as for his athletic prowess, Steve was always a willing listener and lender of helpful advice to his classmates. There is no doubt that after the trials and tribulations of company commander, Steve will be an excellent naval officer. 1 THOMAS JOSEPH CORCORAN The last of the great playboys on the East Coast, Cork came to Canoe U. directly from Salesianum School in Wilmington, Dela- ware. Having shoved the coast button plebe summer, he gave his undivided attention to the NA-10 and also had stmts with the Musical Clubs Shows and the Concert Band. Warm weather would always find Cork on the tennis courts playing for the battalion team. Other times would find him in Mem Hall playing piano as a bonus attraction for the touri. Cork devoted any available time left to dragging and his minor in Steam, usually in that order. His happy nature and pleasant outlook towards everything will make Cork a welcome addition to the Navy. ROBERT MICHAEL CORRIGAN Smiling Mike, from the deep water country of Illinois, came to the Academy after a year at Southern Illinois University. Being wise in the ways of the world. Mike was often turned to for advice on varied subjects. Always a fun-loving individual, Mike never let the Academy cramp his style. After battling through Plebe year academics, Mike ' s natural ability m Bull, his chosen minor, made academics smooth sailing, although he often burned the midnight oil over Science courses. No matter which branch of the Naval Service Mike decides to conquer, his professional attitude and easy going ways should be of great benefit to him and his colleagues. I BRUCE CHARLES DAVEY Bruce, known as Dax by those who loved him, came to the Academy from the dry pea capital of the world, Moscow, Idaho After summers of mountain climbing and drag racing his ' 55 Chevy up in " God ' s Country " , Bruce quickly made the transition to the D. C. Raceway I Route 50) and scaling the walls of Bancroft whenever the need arose. Sought after for company sports because of his physical stamina and athletic abilities, he was always a winner — although the teams fluctuated from last to Brigade Champs. Despite his questionable study habits, which included pool and pinochle, Bruce was a frequent visitor to the Supt ' s List. Bruce will always be remembered for receiving his " letter " in company boxing and his poetic achievements. GERALD THOMAS DOEMPKE Gerry was right at home at the Naval Academy. Having demonstrated his abilities as an enlisted man, Gerry was given a Secretary of the Navy appointment, but relinquished it in favor of his Congressional appointment in order to allow another fellow Napster to enter the Academy. Sometimes the going got tough, but he always came out on top. Gerry ' s interest was electronics, so, he pursued the difficult course of study - Electrical Science. An asset to the Juice Gang, Gerry spent many evenings setting the lighting for the Musical Clubs and Masqueraders Shows. A connois- seur of pipes, his collection was second to none. Friendly, understanding, and a hard worker, Gerry is sure to be an asset to the Naval Service. «t-g .1 JAMES NORFLEET EAGLE, II Jimbo IS a Marine junior currently following In his father ' s footsteps at the Academy. He had a fluid high school education, attending four of them before graduating in Beaufort, South Carolina in 1965. He now calls Lonoke, Arkansas his home. Jimbo IS versatile in many fields, being an accomplished guitarist, private pilot, " Townie " Hunter and scholar; he is an oft-repeated member of the Supt ' s and Dean ' s Lists and was designated a Trident Scholar for 1968-69. He has also been active in yawl sailing, the Antiphonal Choir and company sports. He plans to be in the immediate master ' s program in Physics upon graduation and in Jimbo ' s case, what he sets his mind to has a way of happening. STEPHEN ALBERT EDWARDS Steve entered the Academy after a year in the social whirl at Randolph-Macon College in Virginia. It didn ' t take Steve long to establish a firm relationship with the messhall and quickly became the company " heavyweight " , a title he was to keep all during his tour at the Academy. Steve swam through the academics here, just keeping his head above water. However, he did complete a major course of study, that of " pad-ology. " Behind the carefree exterior grew a deep respect for his chosen profession and for his fellow men. The IMavy was fortunate to be able to pull Steve from his civilian campus and will continue to benefit as Steve finds his way into the fleet. JAMES OREN ELLIS, JR. Jim arrived at the Academy straight out of high school in Marietta. Georgia but now gives Spartanburg, South Carolina as a home address. A Navy junior, he fit right in to " the system. " After emerging from Plebe year with a high standing, Jim then plunged head first into a Aero Engineering major. The stiff curriculum put a slight dent in his grade point, but sheer determination eliminated the possibility of a permanent stumbling block. Debate takes up much of Jim ' s time, but his name may also be found on the rugby injuries list in the Spring. Jim ' s sights are set on a Navy career where he is certain to leave his mark. JAMES LEO FEENEY Big Jim called the bad lands of South Dakota his home. Having spent one year at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology Jim fit right in to the rigors of the life at the Academy. Although he sometimes experienced a little difficulty with his chosen field of Electrical Science, he always managed to end up sat at the end of the semester. Always an aggressive competitor in sports, Jim was a valuable member of many company teams. His competitive spirit and keen sense of duty will be a valuable asset to Jim in whichever branch of the armed forces he chooses to direct his ability. cA po, MICHAEL GORDON GENRICH " The old man " was born and bred in the North woods of Wisconsin and for him the ingredients for a perfect day are a case of beer and a brisk trout stream Coming to USNA via NAPS gave Mike a head start on most of us professionally Also, since he was the company ' s oldest man land presumably the most experienced) his opinions on practically everything were well heeded by his classmates. Each week night would find Mike up well past midnight studying, and as a result, he was consistently on the Supt ' s List. Mike ' s major is Oceanography and he plans to go into this field after graduation. GEORGE MINOT GORDON George was practically born a bosun ' s mate. An avid motorboat enthusiast he spent much of his high school days working on boats. Later plans call for a continuation of this line on a slightly larger scale - destroyers. George vied for a place on the soccer team as a goalie both as a Plebe and a Youngster. The 32nd company found George a valuable asset to its regimental champion lightweight football team. Academics were not his first love, but he found a history minor most to his liking. If the Navy has a slot for a hard worker with an acute attention to orderliness, with a star, a stripe and Bull, George will fill it well. ' TBf . -flr RICHARD GEORGE KIRKLAND Rick came to the Academy - the third from his family. Since he had to report before his parents moved to their present home in Alameda, California, Rick never had a chance to become a real, live " California Dreamer. " However, his dreams of academic excellence soon came true on the Supt ' s List and Dean ' s List. No one IS ever sure if his second class coffee table attempt will ever materialize after the seventh failure. His dreamy Christmas dis- plays will always be remembered. But his biggest wish has been coming true gradually as his friendliness and comradship have made him an outstanding friend and a class leader. JOHN WILLIAM NEWTON A true Southerner from Richmond, Virginia, " Newts " brought the Academy the fighting spirit and drive characteristic of a great leader. Although taking an active interest in intramural soccer and as indoor track manager. Bill found batt tennis his favorite racquet. A terror in the academics departments, he had little trouble with his courses and was a consistent member of the Dean ' s and Supt ' s List. Devoting much time to Chapel Choir and the Glee Club, Bill spent few weekends without being on an extracurricular trip or without a drag. With his personal desire to excel in any job that he encounters, and his uncanny ability to organize. Bill has established the foundation which will lead him to a successful Naval Career. GERALD JAMES O ' DONNELL Jerry came to USNA in the summer of 1965 by way of Alvin Junior College. Having lived in Galveston, Texas all his life, the water was not a new phenomenon to Jerry. Plebe year found him rowing lightweight crew, when he wasn ' t " visiting " a certain firstie. His love for food was not to conducive to lightweight crew, however, and so Youngster Year Jerry established his permanent residency with the varsity Sailing Squadron. Renowned for his card-playing ability, Jerry ' s favorite pastime was 500 Rummy, that IS when he wasn ' t in the pad checking for eyelid leaks. Jerry ' s great sense of humor, warm personality, and high motivation are sure to make him one of the Navy ' s finest officers. BAKER ARMSTRONG SMITH " Bakes, " hailing from the Peach State of Georgia, was one of the few members of our class who had the physical attribute of being able to look through a key hole with both eyes. An avid competitor in the intramural program. Baker soon discovered a love for handball and squash. Second class year found him active with the Public Affairs Committee, and he created the first USNA Kinetic Light Show. Never at a loss for a timely comment. Baker took a sincere interest in those entrusted to his leadership. With his electives from the Management Department, and his persistent attitude to complete any job. Baker should be a welcome addition to the Naval Service. 458 JOHN JOSEPH STOCKDALE Arriving directly from Catholic Central High School in Grand Rapids, Michigan, John headed straight tor the Natatorium, where he was rewarded for his hard work by a prized " N " . Four years of constant soaking left him sufficiently water-logged to absorb a three point average from the academic department. As a regular on the Supt ' s List, he managed to convince the wild profs of the Science Department that he deserved an Electrical Science major. A volunteer submariner during first class cruise, John ' s economic " periscope liberty " enabled him to save enough for the down payment on his Cortina supercar. The Navy will find his deter- mination and willingness-to-work a valuable asset. JOHN HOWARD STRAUSS As a confirmed Northerner from Buffalo, New York, the " Jaw " brought with him to Navy the good nature, quick wit and drive which enable him to win friends and influence his fellow man. In addition to being an avid sports fan, he is a fine athlete in his own right, excelling in varsity soccer and as a member of the Brigade Championship basketball team. In almost every tangle with the academic department, John has emerged on top and has been a consistent member of the Supt ' s and Dean ' s Lists. Always ready with a song, a friendly nature and a desire to excel, John will contribute to the Naval Service the leadership ability necessary for a successful career. TERRY SCOTT WANNER Terry arrived in Annapolis directly from Colorarfo Springs bringing with him an aggressive and cheerful personality. Though most of his leisure time was taken up with academics, he utilized most of his study hours perfecting his art work, learning the guitar, and mastering pinochle. In spite of his lack of previous experience, Terry became one of the finer floor exercise com- petitors in the East. At any party, acrobatics, but " technical " difficulties usually prevented his performing a " half-time " show. Terry has always been willing to accept any task and has worked many hours on successful Army projects. The fleet will win a willing worker and a ready wit from Terry. DONALD EDMUND WILCOX, JR. The Sooners of the University of Oklahoma lost an ardent supporter when Don elected to come to Navy from Norman, Oklahoma. A second generation alumnus, Don readily adapted to life at the Academy. Plebe year found Don contributing his six foot six inch frame to Navy basketball, a dedication which was to continue for two more years. Plebe crew and a number of intramural sports were also among his efforts. Don ' s academics ran hot and cold, but were never much of a problem as he worked his way towards a double minor in Mechanical Engineering and Math. Don ' s ever ready smile and sincerity coupled with his extra- ordinary ability to make friends will insure his success in the years to come. lii 33RD COMPANY SECOND CLASS Row 1: Dailey, E.

Thirty-six of us entered in the summ er of 1965, most of us innocent and trusting in the " Navy Way " , now twenty-four of us are left, all older and wiser and wondering " where the hell are we? " From Club 9 to 33 we never left an outstanding mark on the fields of academics or sports, but did manage to compile records on the size of our motor pool, legendary parties, and notorious thirst for anything alcoholic. We built many lasting friendships in the last four years, and the brotherhood will never forget the ties that bind us together wherever we may be. SPRING SET: CO. CDR: J. L. Cooley: SUB-CDR: G R Overbeck: CPO: R. L. Moeller, Jr. 33rd COMPANY OFFICER LT R E. Johannesen, USN VERNON E. BINION, JR. Vern came to the Academy from Marion Military Institute, where he spent a year preparing for the rigors of Academy life. A fine athlete, Vern decided in his first year to give up crew, his best sport, in order to devote more time to academics. A very determined student, he took on a heavy load to acquire a major in Operations Analysis. In his spare time, Vern, never ceased to enjoy life. Always the life of the party, he made life more enjoyable for those around him. He likes water skiing, drinking beer and is an accomplished dancer. Vern ' s pleasant personality, quick wit and sharp intellect will place him in high demand both as a friend and as a naval officer for years to come. JOHN WILLIAM BLAUE John, who answers to the name of Hurt, came to us from Golden Colorado. An avid skier, John will be remembered not only for his athletic prowess but also for his academic triumphs. A " starman " from the beginning, his success could be attributed to his self-discipline, developed by visits to the weight room and yoga. His idea of a " chow package " was a few high protein pills and some honey. An outstanding defensive back for the " little blue " . Hurt ' s escapades with the fair sex will long be a source of fond memories for all of us. John ' s mastery of the challenges of Plebe year can only lead us to predict an equally brilliant naval career. THOMAS JAMES BURDICK Tom arrived at Santee Pier a stranger to the seas, but it was not long before he had secured a spot for himself on the crew of the Freedom. An avid ocean sailor, Tom participated in the Newport- Bermuda race his third class summer. In addition to sailing, Tom ' s avid interest in water sports led him to positions on the batt swimming and water polo teams. In the field of academics, Tom excelled in French and gained a minor in Operations Analysis. Frequently seen at Sunday afternoon mixers, Tom ' s proficiency in dancing almost equaled his card playing ability. Tom holds a spot in the hearts of all his classmates, and he will long be remembered for his cheerful smile and amiable personality. WILLIAM EUGENE COLEMAN Bill, better known as Erodes, came to the Academy from Cathedral Prep where he lettered in football, basketball and baseball. Once at Navy he continued to make his prowess on the football field felt by starring in company football. Academically Brodes burned through the books in his quest for a Math major and was consistently wearing stars in the process. In his search for an education Brodes is thinking about Nuclear Power School and subs where he will be able to put his ability to work miracles with numbers to bear. Around the wardroom Brodes always displayed his quick wit. With his sense of humor and logical mind the fleet is sure to benefit from the addition of Bill Coleman. RICHARD THOMAS COLTON Dick came to Annapolis as the favorite son of Boston ' s Hyde Park. Born and raised;there, he ' sas genuinely Bostonian as baked beans and the Red Sox. (if you don ' t believe it, listen to him talk) While at the Academy, Dick was an eager participant in many activities and intramurals, of which Rugby was perhaps his favorite, as his scrapes and bruises testified. Four years of military living did nothing to dampen his pursuit of the finer things in life. And without being an anomaly he remained an artist m his own right. He is a true gentleman and his " ... refined manners, punctilious courtesy and incest sense of personal honor " will make him a credit to the Naval Service. 462 JOEL LANECOOLEY Despite four years at school, away from fiis beloved tiome. Joel has remained a true Alaskan. Better known to his friends as " Nanook " , Joel is an avid outdoor sportmg enthusiast which inevitably lead him to a summer at Jungle Warfare School in Panama. He has been a consistent member of the Dean ' s List, emerging from Navy with an excellent academic record and a major in Math. No matter how much studying there was to be done, however, old Nanook always found his way into the occasional company card game. His resourcefulness, quick think- ing and high intelligence promise him a bright future in the Naval Service. WILLIAM ALFRED DOIG, JR. After a year at Hillsdale College in Michigan where he was an active member of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity. Bill, alias " LiT Ball " , transferred to USNA. He easily adjusted to the peculiarities of Academy life. Although " LiT Ball " spent several hours listening to Plebe Spanish tapes, his interests were in the field of Chemistry. The aspiring chemist spent many extra hours in the laboratory. An excellent athlete in high school. Bill exhibited his athletic talents in battalion and company sports where he excelled in squash racquets. The future is bright for Bill, although nothing can stop him from talking about Detroit, the naval service will be gaining a dedicated and sincere officer. 1 ROBERT GEORGE FENDER After high school. Bob traveled south from Hempstead, New York to come to the Academy. During his four years here. Bob did not let academics get him down as his many afternoons in the blue trampoline demonstrated. Even though he had a few beads of sweat first semester second class year, academics posed no real problems to him. Bob, a member of a rifle team in high school, brought his accurate eye to the Academy. Wintery Saturday afternoons found him competing, and in the hall Bob travelled with his Navy " N " . He found time for the better things in life and never let a girl with a problem escape his advice. Bob will have no trouble with his future career. HOWARD PAUL GORMAN, JR. Howard, bener known as " Buds, " came to the Academy from Baldwin High in Pittsburgh. With stars and stripes in his eyes, he soon discovered the finer things in life. Not one to worry about regulations he could be found in Washington, D. C. on Saturday nights which according to the officers is further than seven miles. A good athlete, he was always found ripping apart the opponents in company football until fate struck him one day which required surgery on his right knee. Not one to complain he feels that he can still make the most of his mishap. Supply Corps Buds? Considered to be Admiral material if he rids himself of the " seed, " we wish the " Buds " the best of luck in the future. W° - LOUIS JOHN GIANNOTTI Luigi comes to USNA from Bristol, Connecticut where he attended the University of Connecticut for two years. Bringing a little of the Univ. Conn, party spirit with him Lou was always the tension reliever around exam times with a good practical joke. With a keen insight for the numbers Lou served as company tutor in Mathematics never refusing anyone help no matter how busy he was. Lou always managed to budget his time so he would have a few extra minutes on Friday night to give a short trim around the ears to a few classmates. With his many abilities and talents along with his knack for good ha rd work, he is assured of success in whatever the future may place before him. MICHAEL LAWRENCE HONEY Barely cooling his heels and brushing the dust off in Synnyvale, California after a year in Argentina " Gaucho Honey " came to USNA " ready for bear. " There were no bear but those delightful upperclass and academics combined to make his Plebe year a memorable one. Never one to be contained by four walls, Mike was always dedicating himself to think to compete with his study time like the Spanish Club, NAFAC and Big Brothers, Inc. On the athletic field " Honey " made good on the company soccer team and avidly became one of those mud covered bodies that rose from Farragut Field in the Spring, a rugger. Graduating a strong individual after four years of " the system " , Mike should make a valuable contribution to the Navy team. 463 THOMAS FRANKLIN HOUSE, JR. Tom came to the Naval Academy after a year at Southern State College m Magnolia, Arkansas. Hailmg from San Bernardino, California, Tom plunged straight into adapting to Maryland ' s fickle climate. While pursuing an Aerospace Engineering major, Tom has been a permanent member of the Dean ' s and Super- intendent ' s Lists.

Tom ' s ability to apply himself and do his best will guarantee his success in whatever he may choose. DAVID STEPHEN JUARIN - Dave is a member of the exclusive group hailing from Pitts- burgh, Pennsylvania. He came to the Academy and continued a very successful career which he began at St. George High School. He played Plebe and junior varsity basketball, in addition to maintaining a Supt ' s List average in his Foreign Affairs major. The only stumbling block to stars came when negotiating his En gineering courses. In pursuit of his interest in the English, History and Government Department, Dave was an avid participant in the Foreign Affairs Club and the annual Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference. His slightly mischievous and piercingly ef- fective wit and easy going sense of humor enlivened many study hours for his classmates. J EDWARDS. KENDIG Ed, better known as Stroke, has been a cheerful addition to the Brigade. His procrastination, forgetfulness, weightlifting, sleepiness and Corvette-itis caused much laughter, but he always had a comeback. Stroke came to USNA from Grove City College with F-4 ' s in his eyes, but because of his eyes he has turned to the Marine Green. An expert marksman, Ed has continually stood high in the annual pistol competition, along with high scoring in fieldball. Ed ' s love of car machinery has led him to a Mechanical Engineering concentration and a consistent spot on the Supt ' s List. All in all. Stroke will be remembered by all as a unique member of the Brigade. JAMES MARSHALL KIMMEL Jim, the man of many names, has been an inspiration to the professionalism of his classmates. His consistently good appear- ance always left everyone in awe, along with his unbelievable ability to consume tremendous quantities of food.

GEORGE McCULLAR MOORE George arrived in Annapolis to begin his naval career after a short drive down John Hansen Highway from Silver Spring where he had attended Montgomery Blair High School. Already an old salt, having first sailed at twelve, George rapidly became involved in the Sailing Squadron. He gained a yawl command as a Youngster and has represented the Naval Academy in the world famous Bermuda Race. Many was the night when his Weapons minor suffered in favor of nautical conversation with his ship- mates. George was a member of the varsity rifle team, possibly as a deferent to Corsairs on the high seas. Not lacking in the social graces, George was also an energetic member of the Hop Com- mittee. 1 GERALD ANNIBALE MOTTA Jerry came to USNA after two years in the Navy and another at NAPS - Plebe Summer he survived better than most of us, however, and spent his remianing years here making up for lost time - both at the books and in the pad. Despite various misunderstandings with the academic departments, " The Wop, " always managed to keep his Italian head above water and became well known for his uncanny ability to bounce back for more. Well adapted to military life, he was always one of the leaders. Always ready with a quick line - and a quicker smile - Jerry is the kind of friend we will always value and look forward to seeing in our future years in the service. GREGG ROBERT OVERBECK Gregg ' s decision to come to the Naval Academy after his freshman year at St. Louis University proved a loss for Busch Stadium. Upon entering the hallowed halls of Mother B he immediately made his mark by validating most of his courses in order to pursue a mathematically and scientifically oriented program. Pumpkin knew when to work and when to play, doing both with great gusto. Turnin ' and burnin ' late at night brought him those stars which he never seems to be without. Numerous afternoons finds him in the weight room throwing around the bar, or in his room throwing around his roommate. His dedication and energetic resourcefulness will remain with him, no doubt, through- out his career in the naval service. EDWARD GEORGE SCHWIER Ed, alias Semi, is Cincinnati, Ohio ' s gift to the Naval Academy. Coming to Navy with a full year at the University of Cincinnati, Semi developed study habits that allotted most of his time to writing letters and poetry to various " acquaintances. " But, a few moments of concentration a night with his celebrated brain has resulted in seldom paralleled achievements of frequent " 4.0 ' s " and a Trident Scholarship. Afternoons, Semi could be found either knocking down fieldball opponents, or limping to his favorite p-rade vantage point — a Navy yawl. Because of a personality that boasts an enjoyable combination of teasing and sincerity, his amazing intelligence, and a latent desire to be a " lifer, " Semi will undoubtedly be the finest of naval officers. DONALD MARCEL SCOTT Scotty, as he was known to his friends, though diminutive in stature, will always loom larger than life in the memories of his classmates. Don chose Aerospace Engineering as his field of interest, and the midnight oil burned frequently in his battle with the Bull Department. Undaunted from his yearly skirmish with the shark infested waters of the Natatorium he was very active in the Jucie Gang, the AIAA and the Newman Club. Don is one of the proud wearers of the silver wings awarded to qualified parachute jumpers. Don has always been motivated to succeed in whatever he undertakes, and as such will make an officer whom we will all be proud of having known and served with GLENN RICHARD WHALEY Glenn, known as Whales, could be characterized by a perpetual smile, a warm greeting, and a friendly handshake. Strong in his faith and his desire to help his fellowman, Glenn was very active in Youth for Christ, the Naval Academy Christian Association and the Officer ' s Christian Union. And, each Saturday you could find him in town working with the youth of Annapolis. Glenn, a devoted student, achieved Dean ' s List each semester in the very difficult Physics program. Each summer in his quest to meet people, Glenn became somewhat of a vagabond. Traveling across and out of the country. He always returned with exciting ex- periences to talk about. Glenn will always be able to look back at his four years with much pride and satisfaction. 466 34th Company - §ge FALL SET: CDR: R. G. Sprigg; SUB-CDR: A. T. Church, III; CPO: R. Pitman. The 34th Company ' 69ers began their college years at Annapolis, thirty-six strong, with ol ' 10th Company on that gloomy June day we remember so well, four years ago. That first summer of normal enlightenment, thorough indoctrination, and vigorous exercise united us in the great comradery of plebehood. Inspired we were, with an esprit de corps which held us together through the trials of plebe year, including a full dress blue review for most of us at Christmas, before our family and friends at home. We missed colors by a hair that year, but as Youngsters, we became more casual, seeking satisfaction in the reverberations of our stereo amplifiers. Second Class year brought us to the 34th Company, headed by an outstanding Marine. Here we developed more sophisticated pastimes. One famous position of our crew, keeping in step with the times, sprouted flowers and beads, genetic corn, and Grass; consequently winning free tickets home, compliments of ONI. New recruits restored our ranks that Spring, but only fifteen veterans of Terrible Ten will make the June Fling. Our percentage-look to your left, look to your right, if you ' re here, they— 59.5% aren ' t. SPRING SET: CO CDR: D. H. Estey, Jr.; SUBCDR M. J Bagaglio, Jr.; CPO: R.

MARIO JOSEPH BAGAGLIO, JR. Mario, or Bags as he is known bv most of his friends, hails from Dennison, Ohio. With three years at Linsly Military Insititue as a military background. Bags met the Academy requirements with ease. He displayed a lively personality even though many times he was called on to do tasks that were required of him as a striper. He found little trouble with the academic department and could occasionally be seen wearing stars while being a perennial member of the Supt ' s List. The only difficulty he ever encountered was when he entered the Natatorium, but he always came out okay. With his personality, pep, and cheerfulness success is sure to greet Bags in his career in the service. MARKBARBERO Barbs came to USNA from Edison High School in Alexandria, Virginia. Coming from a Navy family, he was used to extensive traveling and constant changes. As a result. Barbs had that lively personality that is characterized in a Navy junior. Plebe year found Barbs a long time guest in the hospital. Being a lover of good times and freedom. Barbs was one of the first off on liberty. He could always be counted on for a good joke or a helping hand when it was needed. His sincerity, although often hidden by his outgoing attitude, was ever present in his friendships. Whatever branch of the service Barbs decides to enter, he will offer an enviable sense of desire and determination. TERRENCE L. BINGMAN Terry came to USNA from New Kensington, Pennsylvania where he was a member of various school bands and the Key Club. Terry followed his musical inclinations and became a member of both the Naval Academy Drum and Bugle Corps and the Concert Band. Terry devoted many long hours of hard work to these two organizations. He contributed greatly to many of the half-time shows for which the D B is so well known. Apart from his musical endeavors Terry still found time to compete in the intramural sports of lightweight football, squash, and Softball. I ' m sure Terry will become a fine naval officer because he possesses the desire and the will to work hard and get any job done. GREGORY CHARLES BROWN Greg calls Lincoln Park, New Jersey home, although the ski slopes and the shore claimed a sizeable part of his leaves. He renowned himself with his skiing ability Plebe year, and with his love for the pad time the other three years. He got a head start on the " system " in the enlisted Navy and at NAPS. Brownie could be found afternoons soaking up the sun with the Sailing Squadron and up front in the Chapel Choir on Sundays. Amiable and outgoing, he was always a hit in Philadelphia at the Army game where he would arrive at the march-on with an overcoat full of goodies for his classmates. Greg ' s friendly personality and deter- mined attitude should insure him a successful career in the Navy. Js DONALD WAYNE CARSTENS Although he came fresh out of Perry Hall High School in Baltimore, Wayne managed to validate most of Plebe year and since then, has made practically every Dean ' s List. Wayne soon became well known, not only for his willing academic help, but for the good times to be had with him - June Week pool parties and ski trips, to mention a few. A strong competitor on the lacrosse field and a good eye for the girls further attest to Wayne ' s wide diversity of interests. His easy going manner and great ability will set Wayne well on his way in whatever career he chooses. ALBERT THOMAS CHURCH, III Tom, a Navy junior from Alexandria, Virginia, is one of the more effervescent personalities of the class, adding that extra bit of humor to each day that makes weekends come that much sooner whether it be in performing his ritual pre-weekend dance or celebrating the end of a six " N " day. A former member of the 31st Company, Tom moved to the 34th Company " housekeeping " as Company Sub-Commander. When it comes to academics he is a diligent worker who, by putting forth that extra sweat when it comes to exams, has managed to maintain a fine scholastic average. Tom ' s vibra nt personality and drive will assure him of success upon graduation. JAMES PRESSLEY CRAFT, III The son of an Academy graduate, Jim entered with a better than average knowledge of what to expect from life at USNA. With a keen mind, he found plenty of free time to devote to devising new ideas to make life more comfortable and interesting for himself as well as his classmates. Whatever time wasn ' t devoted to his first love — varsity crew — went to his second, Georgia and all possible means of spending as much time as was available there. Other moments found him either sitting in deep thought or taking more leisurely advantage of the time which early validation upon entrance had granted him. His future in the service will be at the least exciting and varied. NORMAN RICHARD DEPP Rick came to Navy from the hallowed halls of Punxsutawney Area High School, where he was an outstanding football and basketball player. Since his arrival at the Academy, " Norman " , as he IS known by his close friends, has carried his athletic prowess into the realm of 150 lb. football and company basketball. Academic life didn ' t always agree with " Norman " , but it never got him down and he always did his best in work and play, parti- cularly the latter. An easy going manner and keen sense of humor made Norman the hit of any party. Rick ' s greatest attributes are his personality, confidence and ability to get things done. Rick will be an outstanding naval officer and a welcome member of any command. GERALD JOSEPH DOWNEY, JR. Coming to us from Charlotte, North Carolina after high school graduation, Jerry quickly adapted to life at the Naval Academy. Starting Plebe year, he entered into many extracurricular activities which took valuable study and rack time. Even so, Gerry partici- pated in intramural football, fieldball and obtained a command qualification for the Academy yawls. Although many a weekend found him researching a term paper for his E. H. G major, he did manage to find a few weekends to devote to the fairer sex. Jerry ' s amiable personality and fine character will definitely lead him to be one of the finer line officers in the fleet. 470 DONALD HOWARD ESTEY, JR. Chip came to USNA from Delmar, New York where in high school he lettered in football, baseball and basketball. He con- tinued his athletic career at Navy by playing varsity baseball and football. Chip was liked and respected by all his classmates from the start. The confidence they held in him was shown when he was elected vice president of the " N " Club. He proved himself to be a hard worker by his long hours spent on the class policy committee and fulfilling his duties as a Company Commander. Chip accom- plished all the tasks given him with great success and there is no doubt he will become an outstanding officer and a credit to the naval service. JERRY M. FARROW Jerry came into Navy life from Smyrna, New York. While at the Academy he sang m the Antiphonal Choir and excelled at Brigade boxing as well as other activities. He was often charac- terized by a certain benign cynicism bred in part by his four year running battle laundry, press shop and academic departments, but this was not to belie his resolution and ability to hang in there in the face of adversity. Jerry ' s profeiciency with the parallel rulers and dividers earned him the title of " Prince Henry the Navigator " , but his wit, wisdom and sound judgmerw will contribute most to his success in the service. DAVID BAILEY JENNINGS Dave, a Navy junior, calls Wilmington, North Carolina home. He could usually be found manning one of the Navy yawls out on the Chesapeake or playing a quick round of tennis or squash. He also kept the radios going in the ham shack where he put his Electrical Science studies to good use. He had no trouble keeping his pad in shape or leaving all his possessions around the yard. His contact with the academic world was an undying mystery, a problem he tried to solve with his 4 a.m. reveilles. His pleasant attitude and congenial smile will be a welcome asset to the Navy. TIMOTHY EUGENE McCOMBS Tim came to the Academy from Wheeling, West Virginia. To those of us who knew Tim, nothing is called to mind more vividly than his genuinely sincere manner and congenial person ality. His easy going way often got him into problems in the academic department, but even here he showed that nothing is impossible. In his athletic endeavors Tim has been looked upon as a " Jack of all trades. " However, he has mastered quite a few of them, such as company basketball, Softball and volleyball. It is quite safe to say that Tim will succeed as an outstanding naval officer, for his firm yet polite demeanor will carry him through even the most challenging of problems. I ik OWEN DAVID McLEAN A hillbilly at heart, Owen left his native North Carolina hills for a rewarding career at the Naval Academy. Though he spent the greater part of Plebe summer learning the fundamentals of march- ing, he thereafter had little difficulty in adapting to the rigors of Academy life. Never one to let academics interfere with the finer things of life, Owen was known to complete Skinny labs without leavmg the confines of " Mother B. " He never encountered a problem so great that it could not be solved by spending a few hours in the pad or a pain so intense that it could not be soothed by listening to his beloved stereophonic " soul sounds. " His cheerfulness, sense of humor and determination, should insure a successful service career. Owen definitely has the potential to become an outstanding officer and perhaps one day a gentleman of sports. GARY WARD MORAN Gary came to Navy after a year at University of Massachusetts and found things quite different from that fun-loving civilian school. Adjustment came quickly, for his warm smile and cheerful " Hello " led to many a close friendship. His year at University of Mass. provided quite an asset also, leading to fine grades and a major in Systems Engineering. Although Gary ' s time at the Natatorium was exciting, his real forte ' shines through under sail, in anything from a dinghy to " The Freedom. " We ' re sure that Gary ' s personality and ability to make friends will serve him well ■ n the years to come. ( RONALD PRESLEY MOSELEY Ron came straight out of the soft life of high school in Decatur, Georgia to the harsh reality of the Academy. While in high school, " Mose " , as he is affectionately called by his friends, was an exceptional football and baseball star. His natural ability coupled with desire led him to become captain of the 150 lb. football team and a three time all-league center. When Ron wasn ' t worrying about his lengthy locks being clipped, he was deciding which lovely damsel he would be escorting on the weekend. While not a Trident Scholar, " Mose " was never in academic trouble and could be counted on to help his classmates. Whichever branch Ron chooses, he will be a fine leader and a valuable asset. RONALD L. PITMAN Hailing from Wauchula, Florida and graduating number one in his class, Ron ignored several scholarship offers to enter the Naval Academy. He soon proved that he knew a great deal about professional subjects, springing from a boyhood desire to learn as much as possible about the great men of history. Ron had no problem with academics and his Oceanography major and he constantly gave extra instruction to his classmates. Ron has the highest sense of personal honor and integrity and is never afraid to stand up for what he believes. Although a qualified Army parachutist, Ron hopes his aviation training at Pensacola will be good enough to relieve him of his Army found knowledge. I GEORGE MICHAEL PROUT Mike came to the N aval Academy straight from the hills of Kentucky after graduation from high school. Plebe summer he adjusted to Navy life, but many of his classmates say his biggest problem was learning to wear shoes. His first love is flying and he pursued this goal by studying for a major in Aerospace Engineer- ing. First class year he was President of the USNA chapter of the Al AA. Mike ' s musical talents found an outlet in the D B, and his conviction that " anything worth doing is worth doing right " will make him a fine leader in the naval service. WILLIAM LOUIS SCIBA, JR. Hailing from the Lone Star State, Bill traded the cotton fields back home for the p-rade field at Navy. But this was short-lived because he soon found he was better suited for the football field and went on to be an outstanding player for the varsity football tea m. His name frequently appeared on the Supt ' s mailing list but he always managed to escape a personal appearance. He was always easy to find during his free periods, being a firm believer in the theory that no problem is so big that you can ' t sleep on it. With his friendly nature and easygoing personality, Bill will go far in any venture he undertakes. 472 MICHAEL LOUIS SLONECKER Mike, a born and bred Navy junior, came to the shores of the Severn from Florida right after graduation from high school. Making the transition from civilian to Plebe seem harder than it really was, he rose to the occasion and has since compiled an enviable record. An avid sports fan, Mike ran cross country and track his Plebe year but later switched his interest towards company sports. Not one to let academics slide, he could often be found giving or receiving the " gouge " the night before a big exam. The method worked as Mike ' s name frequently could be found on the Supt ' s List. With his easy going manner and enthusiasm for the service, Mike seems assured of success as a naval officer. ROBERT GARY SPRIGG Bob abandoned the Army life his father had chosen and came to the Naval Academy from Fort Monroe, Virginia. The fact that Bob was on the Supt ' s list for one semester showed the academic potential he owns. He possesses that rare gift for leadership as shown by his excellent job as a member of the Plebe Detail. Bob ' s classmates voted him Class and Honor Representative for two years. A good natural athlete. Bob participated in volleyball, fieldball and Softball for three years. Bob will surely succeed in his two ambitions: to serve his country well and to get another motorcycle. i WILLIAM ALLAN TAIT Al, often called " Alvin " for short by his close friends, came to the Naval Academy from Wellesley, Massachusetts to pursue a long time interest in ships and the sea. Enthusiastic about almost anything that floats from dinghies to dreadnoughts, he has been a member of the Plebe and varsity sailing teams and the Midshipman Sailing Squadron and entertains dreams of being an old line battleship officer. Although occasionally at odds with some of the more technical courses, he usually manages to stay ahead by getting pleanty of sleep before exams. But a keen interest in the seagoing Navy more than compensates for any lack of academic enthusiasm and should contribute to ultimate success m the fleet. JOHN ROBERT YOUNG Moses Lake, Washington is home to Bob but he calls the entire Pacific Northwest his playground. Quick witted and always friendly. Bob never lacked friends among the Brigade. H e was a fierce competitor on the athletic field and sparked many company teams in spite of recurring injuries. Among his favorite activities were sleeping and sitting in on a game of cards. Academics posed little or no problem to Bob but he was first to admit that study was not his favorite pastime. Bob ' s outgoing personality and solid logic made him a favorite of those who sought advice. These qualities will enable Bob to succeed in his chosen career and make him a welcome addition to the Naval Service. 35TH COMPANY SECOND CLASS Row 1: Garrison, L. F.; Hingson, R. H., Jr.; Katz, A.

This made " Army " build-up all the more fun (and work), as various items of interest turned up in his office (like torpedoes), or his office turned up in interesting places (like Michelson Hall). In sports 35 didn ' t win anything, but they had a lot of fun. In varsity sports, however, men from 35 were big in most sports. ECA ' s also were well supported by this company with 4 ECA presidents. 35 was the well rounded company. WINTER SET: CO CDR: D. F. Colin; SUBCDR; S. J. Kuppe; CPO W A. Mackey.

We didn ' t see much of John the first part of Youngster year - he was playing 150 lb. football. He probably holds the four year cumulative weight loss record, as he was always on some sort of diet. The second Yankee Clipper from San Francisisco, his room was always full of friends and patrons alike. John ' s friendly and outgoing personality is sure to be his biggest asset m the Naval Service. HUGH NASH BATTEN, JR. " Nub " came to the Naval Academy only to do post-graduate work because he learned everything which was worth knowing in the eighth grade. However, all of us benefitted from his vast knowledge. Hugh, being the son of a Navy fighter pilot, knew more about the F-4 than McDonnell himself. Nash seldom com- peted in company sports since he was always out for the varsity swimming team. Fiercely competitive, he drove himself to his maximum and we learned to expect nothing less. After we built the Batten farm, which was located outside the thriving metropolis of Taneytown, Maryland, it was used as our hangout, if we didn ' t run out of gas on the way there. Hugh will go Navy Air — Is there anything else? STANLEY EARLCARLIN I should not like to have a biography written about myself; rather, I will use a quote from Goncharov ' s Oblomov to record my thoughts upon graduating. Assume that I am addressing USNA: " You will be frightened of the dawn of new happiness; it will hurt your eyes that are unaccustomed to the bright light. But I shall lead your Audrey to where you would not go, and I will carry out your youthful dreams together with him. Good-bye, old Oblo- movkal ' [11 said, looking back for the last time at the windows of the little house. ' You ' ve had your day ' " MICHAEL ARTHUR CHAFEE " Chafes, " the fastest amtrack on two legs, distinguished himself quickly when it was found that they didn ' t make leggings large enough to fit him. Eventually, they cut up an old seabag and told him to make his own. For three years, Mike ' s booming voice and the sound of the Bitter Ends were the most popular at the Academy. A native of Shellbyville, Indiana, his avid enthusiasm for his management courses was only equalled by his interest in sports, particularly weightlifting for which he was known through- out the Academy. Spring would find Mike running sprints and putting the shot for the batt track team. An energetic and capable leader, he will be welcomed anywhere in the Navy. DENNIS F.COLIN Upon graduation from Berner High School in New York, Denny turned down several scholarships and decided to come to Navy. Here he divided his interests among sports, reading and sleeping, but more often than not, the latter dominated. Denny played lacrosse and won his varsity letter as a Youngster. His determination and physical ability in competition have always made him a winner. As a member of the Plebe Detail, as a motivator of company spirit, and as a man always ready to help peer and subordinate alike, he has won the respect and friendship of all. Although always the first person to say " Yes " when the word party was mentioned, those of us close to him knew him as a deeply motivated, hard-working person, and, more importantly, a sincere riend. LAWRENCE F. DIDDLEMEYER Dids came to the Academy via NAPS and the Marine Corps. With this background he had no trouble adjusting to the life of a midshipman. Besides being an industrious worker Larry could also be the life of the party. I doubt if anyone will forget Army, Plebe year. Being Vice-President of the art and Printing Club, he was one of the mainstays of the organization. On the intramural scene Dids could be seen playing football in the fall, softball in the spring and in the pad in between. Calling Pasadena, Maryland his home he was only a hop, skip and a jump from the T.V. and a few tall cool ones. His cheerful, hard-working attitude should assure success in % the Navy. 476 JAMES E. DOLAN When " Dols " left for the Academy from his hometown of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, he brought with him a keen sense of personal desire and enthusiasm. His good nature and organiza- tional ability soon won him a position as company Social Director, When Jim is not engaged at coordinating company activities, he devotes his time to Political Science and sailing. His special interest in athletics has gained him a reputation as a fine competitor and avid fan. Winter ' s first snow finds him heading for the slopes with his skis. Whatever challenges Jim meets after graduat ion, his desire and enthusiasm will insure his success. DAVID OTIS DREW Dave, a Navy junior who joined the Naval Reserve while still in high school, entered the Academy via that route. Having had three addresses since Plebe summer, it ' s anybody ' s guess where " Otis " will call home tomorrow. A slide rule jockey who needs a dictionary to write a letter home, he elected to follow an Aerospace Engineering minor program in his attempt to avoid the Bull Department. Being by no means the kind of person to spend all of his time studying, Otis played batt handball and other battalion sports to occupy his afternoons. His maturity and good judgment enable Dave to accept the challenges that face him and make the best of whatever comes his way. ROBERT WILLIAM GEARY Hailing from that famous city of Sarasota, Florida the " Gears " or " Bobbi " , as he is known to les femmes, quickly established himself as a Dean ' s List resident and a company stalwart on the lightweight football team. Bob ' s increased academic load towards his Ops major and Math minor caused him to relinquish his better golfing days when he was Florida Junior 4-Ball Champ. Despite his duties as Spanish Club, class and Honor Rep., Bob never failed to respond to the cry of E.I. He was well-known for hiscompany gouge sessions in the Black Magic Art of Nav. Ops. Looking to the future, he has decided to cash in his " Sunbeam Alpine " for a career in the United States Marine Corps. JEROME DEAN KISLIA Calling the Land of Lincoln home, Jerry entered the Academy after one year at Lafayette College where he was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity. Jerry adapted to the change and launched a colorful career at Navy. A true lover of p-rades, the " mouse " joined the Sailing Squadron during Plebe year. In the off season one could find him working hard for the batt handball team or working out on the blue trampoline. Extracurricular activities found him dividing time between Spanish Club trips and the Catholic Choir. The life of every party, Jerome D was always there with a cheerful smile. His ingenuity and intelligence will undoubtedly add up to an outstanding career in the service. { 4 STEPHEN JAMES KUPPE Steve ( " the Kupes " ) hails from the tiny town of Putnam, Conneticut, but to hear him talk, Putnam is no minute village. Coming from a strictly " Navy " family, he was well prepared for the exacting discipline that we experienced while at the Academy. As President of the Art Printing Club for two years, Steve ran an efficient system which produced annually up to 5,000 posters for the Army-Navy football game. Also included in his work was providing posters for other sporting events, concerts, plays and dances. His experience from direction of this club will undoubt- edly aid him in becoming one of the finest officers provided by the Class of ' 69 to the fleet. ROBERT LEE LEDBETTER Bob came to the Academy from Norfolk, Virginia where he excelled as a horseman, an interest which shall always be a favorite pastime for him. Bob ' s bubbling enthusiasm never left him at a loss to put down his work and help a classmate. Bob would attribute his |oy to his personal faith in Jesus Christ. Fondest m Bob ' s memories of Annapolis will be those times spent with a certain Crabtown female. Bob ' s professional interests and his excellent performance as four year member of the YP Squadron will add much to the energies and abilities which will make him a truly outstanding surface line officer. ROBERT BENNET LEES Tackling Plebe year and life at USNA was no problem for " Weezer " as he brought that fighting Sooner spirit through all four of his years. From the athletic fields, where he participated in the tougher contact sports of soccer, rugby and lightweight football to his nightly wrestling bouts, Bob ' s dynamic personality endeared him to all. His Chemistry major induced many academic anxieties, and many hours of hard work (and a few in the PADI, but have resulted in a graduate destined to a fine, rewarding career in the service of his country. ROBERT DUNCAN MaclVER Coming from Texas, Bob never tires of talking -about Texas. Other than weekly haircuts and having to wear shoes 20 hours a day, Mac made a painless transition into military life. Boundless energy coupled with strong vocal chords have earned him the postiion of Head Cheerleader for the ' 68- ' 69 season. His easy going style has carried him through the first three years and should last him another. After graduation. Bob has plans for Navy Air. This desire was no doubt substantiated by a very enjoyable summer in Pensacola and Jacksonville. All things considered, Mac should prove to be a popular member at the O ' Clubs. ( WILLIAM ALEXANDER MACKEY, JR. Bill is a master at the art of good humor. Seldom is one not greeted with a smile and the characteristic handshake he offers. Upon returning from Youngster cruise. Bear hybernated for a year, went from his slim 195 to a somewhat larger figure and not until the end of second class year did he recover from all that sleep. However, the company didn ' t lose any parties because of lack of participation on Bill ' s part. Intensely proud of being a Navy junior and of his high degree of professionalism, it looks like he ' s a lifer — . He ' s going subs but will it stay down. JOHN REX MARSHALL The " Marsh " has been a prominent man on the ' 69 scene since Plebe year when he was one of the backbones of the " tiger " 1 1 th Pledges. He has a rare balance of determination and frivolity as can be attested to by his stars, Supt ' s List and multi-stripes, on the first part, and by anyone who has ever seen him at a party on the second. He has always been a hard worker, expecting the most of those under him as well as of himself. One of the most loyal friends there is, Navy Air has first choice on this young man and then it will probably be F-4 ' s. and to wherever F-4 ' s are needed. 478 GEORGE WILLIAM MATHER George, a native of Wilmette, Illinois, brought to the Academy a sharp competitrve spirit and a desire to succeed. His high school days were divided by allegiances to the Chicago Bears and Cubs. In four years George has distinguished himself both on and off the athletic field. Besides his B. S., he is pursuing a minor in Political Science. He is a natural leader, which was quickly recognized by his classmates who were exposed to his enthusiasm and devotion to duty. Athletically, George has excelled as a varsity linebacker and defenseman on football and lacrosse respectively. Upon graduation, the Navy will find in George one of the finest officers the Academy has vet produced. ANDREW LEON NORMAND, JR. Few people has ever heard of Nanry-Glo until Andy appeared from the hills of Pennsylvania to make that little coal town famous. After graduating from his small town high school and having been voted " most intellectual, " Andy did an abrupt 180 and was voted by the Academic Board " most likely to leave. " He turned much of his frustrations to sports with one goal in mind, to play on a varsity team. He never quite made the big team but did take an active part in the rougher contact intramural sports - football, fieldtjall and lacrosse. Andy ' s likeable personality, ambi- tion and perserverance will surely help him become an outstanding officer and make the folks back home proud. CHARLES FREDRIC POSEY A Texan in the true sense of the word, Fred came to Navy from Texas Military Institute in San Antonio. He quickly put his military training to good use by giving E. I. in spit shines during Plebe year. But " Pose " was still tied to a more carefree civilian life by the strings of his booming base guitar. His fame as a member of the " Bitter Ends " is surpassed only by his famous adventures with the fair sex. As a rugged intramural competitor or struggling fWath minor, Fred will always be remembered for his desire for per- fection and his cheerful disposition. His enthusiasm, ability and easy nature are sure to bring him future success. CHARLES H.QUANDEL Bringing his " coal cracker " accent to the Academy from Minersville Area High School via Bullis Prep, Chuck was well prepared for Navy life before entering. In the academic depart- ment, his love for Management courses was balanced by the frustration of his year long battle with wires. Only perserverance and quite a bit of luck guided him through the " Magical Mystery Tour. " Each Fall found him cheerfully losing twenty pounds each week to make weight for the 150 lb. football team. These determined efforts and his skillful quarterbackmg won him an N star. Always ready to lend a helping hand, and a sympathetica! ear — that ' s Chuck. His aspirations are great, as are his capabilities. LESLIE JAMES READING Les, hailing from Santa Rosa, California, but calling the Norfolk area ' home ' is a man of many talents. Before coming to Navy, Les was doing well as a music major at Frederick College but It was the USNA Weapons Department where he discovered his true calling. " The Computerized Wonder " is an avid sailor and handball player as well as a master of circuitry. Lock picking, windowcloser-booby trapping and gin rummy. With his many- faceted background, Les has found many friends among members of the officer corps and the opposite sex who recognize in him the soul of an individualist with a zest for living and for the naval service. JOSEPH CHARLES RIETH Joseph Charles Rieth goes by the alias of Pete (!) and hails from San Francisco. Pete really loves the sea (despite four years at the Academy to tame him). He has been on boats as long as he has been here, rowing crew for a while and knocking around the Chesapeake on the yawls since Plebe year. Pete ' s second love, girls excluded, is the language of his ancestors — German. He was secretary of the German Club as a Youngster and visited Germany in ' 68. An individualist and lover of motorcycles, faded levis, electric music and slender blondes, Pete ' s interests after graduation again will turn to the sea - this time beneath the surface. JOHN STRATTON TOLMIE It did not take more than a shotgun to convince John to come to the Naval Academy. In high school " Tolms " always stood above his classmates as an Ail-American eager. John captained the basketball at Navy and set several Navy records. Scholastically " Tolms " spends his time in the Mahan Chemistry labs alternating between alter-egos of Dr. Jekyll Mr. Hyde. Out of the class- rooms and off the court Tolm ' s friends quickly recognized his attributes are cheerfulness, thrift, braveness, cleanliness and rever- ence and to think he was never a Boy Scout. RUSSELL LANGDON WILLIS Under indictment in Quincy, Massachusetts, Lang came to the Naval Academy on what then looked like a reprieve. Lang, the student, and Lang, the athlete, excelled equally on and off the field. Starting linebacker on the Big Blue Team, Lang was known for his crushing tackles and split second reflexes. As a student he studied Economics. His desire to serve his country brought Lang here and his love of the Academy and the Naval Service has achieved for him a knowledge of the service and performance of duty which is nonparallel. Those who have spent four years with Lang will forget much of the Academy world but not of Lang! ' 1 FALL! Cavsiols ma I I I I I 1 iiSjS! rtjTi ■ FALL SET: CDR; M. J. Milchanowski; SUB-CDR: L J.

The Sixty-Niners from Thirty-Six spent their fledgling years in the austere atmosphere of the " terrible twelfth " . From this auspicious beginning, the class proceeded to bigger and better things. Based in the 8th Wing, it spread its control to the Brigade, the Drum and Bugle Corps, three clubs, one varsity sport, and numerous watering holes in the local Maryland countryside. In the near future, it expects to continue this process in the fleet and its ports of call. WINTER SET CO CDR J F . McGovern; SUB-CDR : J. S. White, CPO F P Lounsoerry. SPRING SET: CO. CDR: M. J.

Affectionately known as " Butts " , Tom entered the Naval Academy right out of high school but found no trouble with Plebe year. His fiery competitiveness earned him the nickname " Mad Dog Butler " throughout the company and also a reputation on the gridiron. He played three years of varsity football and a year of Plebe lacrosse. Never one to let the " system " get to him, Tom always made ample time for the finer things in life. His natural leadership talents will be a definite asset to the Navy and certain to make Tom a great success in the service. LAWRENCE JOSEPH CAVAIOLA Known to his classmates as " Wop " or " Cav " , Larry forsook a career at Colorado ' s version of Disneyland and on the sunny beaches near his hometown of Shrewsbury, New Jersey to join the Men of Annapolis. His quick wit and Italian charm have made Larry a popular member of the Brigade, while his avid love for the " Soul Sound " played extra loud has endeared him to the many Plebes who have lived next door. Never one to shun the books or company activities, Larry has been a fierce competitor on the company football and Softball teams, all the while maintaining a 3.8 academic average and pursuing a major in Applied Mathe- matics. We are sure Larry will be successful in whatever he attempts in the future. ' i JOHN PETER DOOLITTLE Doodz, a contribution of Park Ridge, a suburb of Chicago, followed the straight line path from Maine East High to Navy. This avid Black Hawk fan held only one grudge against Plebe year: he never could figure out why the D B didn ' t have training tables. One of the better first sopranos in the corps, Doodz is often found trying to tune his Marfan guitar to classical music. Academically, Luce Hall with its war games and statistical theory held some special meaning for this Operations Analysis major who very seldom saw the underside of a 3.30. Doodz seems to be standing on the threshold of an unlimited future and will surely be an invaluable asset to the naval service. LEO J. FANEUF Leo is one that none of us will soon forget. A better impression of James Brown ' s " Papa ' s Got a Brand New Bag " you ' ve never seen. As for grades, a sobering experience Plebe year convinced Leo of the wisdom in Attending class and thereafter Leo always managed to end up on the plus side of 2.00. A rugged competitor on the touch football field Leo was well known for his spirit and aggressiveness. In between studying and his constant strive for professionalism Leo found time to make many good friends. His stay at the Academy has prepared Leo well for whatever might come his way in the future, and with his many fine qualities Leo is sure of success. JOHN HARDIN GRAY GORDON MICHAEL GREEN Navy bred by a senior Chief Petty Officer, Gordy hails from Hayward, California. Being one of the last members of the class to report to USNA has not influenced his academic standing. Piling on the books for four years, the fleet should represent a welcomed change for this upcoming naval architect. One cannot forget his non-academic merits. A fierce competitor in company football, soccer and Softball, he is always in the quick of things. His quick wit and cheerful smile accomplishes wonders with mids and girls alike. USNA might be losing an academic slash but the fleet is gaining an excellent officer. GREGG GRANT GULLICKSON Gully came to the Academy from the sandy shores of Virginia Beach and we never heard the end of it. After a productive Plebe summer (he was a permanent member of the marching awkward squad and gained notariety from dribbling through the Rotunda in sweat gear), Gregg went through all of Plebe and Youngster year without a demerit. Second class year long hair and sloppy roommates finally caught up with Gully and his perfect conduct record recieved its first blemishes. A well versified performer Gregg was a frequent member of the Supt ' s List as well as a standout on the basketball court. Gregg ' s friendhness, dedication, and sincerity won him many friends and will serve him well throughout life. CONWAY LANSDOWNE HUNT Having spent three semesters at the University of Maryland and two months pumping gas in nearby Bethesda, " Lanny " abandoned the adventurous life of SAE parties and fast cars for the hallowed halls of Mother B and an Aerospace minor. " Pants " can best be remembered for his talents as a pole vaulter on the track team. After a summer of thumping Plebes, he won his coveted N-sweater the following Fall. Although not the Trident Scholar type, he remained sat and was usually out enjoy ing the feminine secenery on weekends. A native of Maryland, Lanny has won the respect and admiration of those around him and will undoubtedly become a great asset in any branch of the service he elects to pursue. STEPHEN DANIEL JOHNSON Dan came out of the hills of North Georgia to Annapolis after completing four impressive scholastic and athletic years at South Cobb High School in Austell, Georgia. A three letter man pre- viously, once at the Academy he concentrated his efforts on the Navy baseball team where he started for the Plebe team and played three years for the varsity. Always a pleasure to have around. Dan ' s warm personality and subtle wit puts him among the Brigade ' s most popular, and his Southern hospitality should continue to aid him in his life-long hobby— girls. Regardless of what graduation might bring, the Navy is receiving a potentially outstanding officer, and we ' re sure the " Georgia Peach " will make the most of it. THOMAS PERRY JOHNSON A Navy junior, T. P. came to the Academy from Bethesda, Maryland and Walter Johnson High School. Although not a giant, he impressed us all with his academic and athletic achievements. A continuous member of the Dean ' s and Supt ' s Lists since Plebe year. He was quick enough to beat most of the big boys in football. Known to the girls as Tom, he holds the record for dragging more Marys than most people know. T. P. was also a member of the Academy ' s only honor society in physics. Sigma Pi Sigma. It IS easy to see that the Navy will gain an outstanding officer when the " squirrel " joins the fleet. He hopes to follow his father ' s footsteps as a career naval officer, STEPHEN JAMES LEAMAN Steve, " The Kid " , hails from the bustling metropolis of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania. A firm believer in hard work and hard play, Steve excels in both. As our Second Class six-striper, his enthusiasm and leadership has been instrumental in developing class spirit and unity. On weekends, Steve is seldom seen without a drag and likes to " keep ' em guessing. " Although never on the bad side of a 3.0, he has watched his stars corrode in his drawer for five semesters. In sports, from varsity football to company fieldball, Steve consistently displays leadership and an unmatch- able will to win. No matter where Steve finds himself in the naval service, his leadership ability and outstanding spirit will make him an asset to any endeavor. 484 FREDDIE PAUL LOUNSBERRY After a successful tour of duty at Gueydan High Freddie attended Marion Institute for two semesters. Fred ' s desire to be a leader among men and his longing for the sea led him to the shores of the Severn. Between a Chemistry major, the Musical Club Shows and varsity sailing, Fred ' s impeccable taste for women was notorious. Stribling Walk was rebuilt in his room. His name has become synonymous with comedy and humor. Fred ' s biting sarcasm and unparalleled wit will long be remembered by all those who knew " Tecumseh. " The " Cajun King " with his uncanny ability to win friends and sincerity of thought will be worthy of the best that life has to offer. ROBERT ERNEST MAYO As one of Portsmouth, New Hampshire ' s most noble gifts to " Canoe U. " , fightin ' Ernie came to the shores of the Chesapeake directly from St. Thomas Aquinas High School. As an avid fan of physical fitness, on most afternoons he can be seen running Farragut Field, and most evenings he can be seen running the " fourth estate athletic club " . Bob ' s quick and ready wit will leave a lasting mark on ' Old Mother B. ' Although he tells us that his first love IS marching, dreams of leading men are closer to his heart. Bob will make a welcome addition to any squadron. JAMES FRANCIS McGOVERN Jim caught the eye of the Naval Academy football scouts during a brilliant season at Bullis Prep and was persuaded to lease his talents to the Big " Blue and Gold " for the next four years. Midshipman McGovern ' s presence at the Naval Academy has been marked with an academic perseverance illustrated by his consistent burning of " the midnight oil. " Jim may best be termed an individualist maintaining a staunch set of principles and gifted with a capability of oral suasion unequaled by his peers. As an uppercalssman, Jim has always been considered stern and yet unfailingly just. Jim is an outstanding midshipman gifted with the leadership talents which will ensure him of uninhibited success in any future endeavors. ALBERT GEORGE MERTZ George left the steel mills of Pittsburgh and Turtle Creek High School to don the uniform of a midshipman. Despite the ups and downs of Plebe year, he was able to come out on top, maintaining a good academic average with little effort. Part of his time was spent with the Musical Clubs Show and the Masqueraders. Known as an animal on the company heavyweight football team, George undoubtedly holds the record for dragging nearly every weekend while at the Academy, including Plebe year. George ' s keen interest in the Navy will lead him into a successful career as a naval officer. 1» t i MICHAEL JOHN MILCHANOWSKI " Ski " came to the shimmering shores of the Severn from Johnson City, New York. Never one to let a difficult situation get the best of him, Mike handled the problems of Plebe year with a relative amount of success. Mike ' s afternoons for four years were dedicated to the confines of Macdonough Hall where he earned honors as a gymnast. For his efforts, he was elected as captain of the Plebe and varsity gymnastics teams. Mike ' s efforts weren ' t always directed towards athletics. He was also a dedicated pursuer of the ' fairer sex ' which he claimed left him ready for the poverty program. Mike ' s proven leadership ability and rational outlook on life will be a definite asset to the naval service. THOMAS PAUL MURACH Tom alias " The Rach " , joined " our nations finest " after four years of high school in the frozen wastes of Massachusetts. When not in the pad, playing pinochle or writing to his OAO, Tom has devoted considerable time and talent to the Foreign Relations Club and NAFAC. Despite a one to f our work to grade ratio, he has consistently maintained averages in the Supt ' s List range. After frustrating years in the back ranks, he has found in the " counsel- ling " of freshman a source of satisfaction and relaxation. Toms wit, determination and great administrative abilities would be a welcome asset anywhere and expecially in the officer corps of the Navy. RUDY EDWARD PLUMMER Rudes has made many lasting friends during his stay at Navy - his best friend being the pad. When he wasn ' t studying horizontal envelopment he could usually be found studying, working out or playing pinochle — not necessarily in that order. When it comes to sports, Rudes puts all he has into what he ' s doing. If contests were won solely on effort. He ' d win by a landslide every time. His determination was put to use as a member of the Navy wrestling team and intramural Softball team. As a true gentleman and just a plain old good guy Rudes has what it takes to be one of the finest officers in the naval service. GEOFFREY WILGUS POMROY Starting from Georgia, Jeep settled where Severn meets the Bay enjoying one of the finer Plebe years. Jeep developed a lasting love for the Academy. Sweating through a few " AC " boards, he ' s come through with a lot of work, and a little luck when it counted. As expected, he has many interests athletically, Geoff is a fierce, fair competitor, trying any sport |ust for fun. His interests vary from karate to football with parachuting and rugby on the side. His fine taste in music can be attested to by his record library. Sports and academics don ' t occupy all his time, he still finds a moment for the fair sex and is always meeting new, interesting femmes everywhere. I 1 I I DAVID HUGH RUDDOCK Dave hails from the thriving metropolis of Homer City, Penn- sylvania. After spending a year at Columbian Prep, Dave entered the Naval Academy with a sound background in academics and athletics, with the latter being more prevalent. Dave played Plebe and varsity football and was very active in company sports during his stay at the Academy. Though academics were an integral part of his stay at the Academy, the monthly letter from the Admiral never seemed to phase himl One of the more popular men in the company, his wit, determination, and perseverance should serve him well in the future, and we know his career will be a successful one. PATRICK MICHAEL SHERBAK New Castle ' s finest came to the sunny shores of the Severn via NAPS where he quickly learned the " finer arts " of Navy life and walked off with the outstanding football and lacrosse player awards. A devoted athlete in all sports, Sherb has played both varsity football and lacrosse with TAD as a " Mighty Mite " and one of the " Weems Creek Boys. " While being a dedicated " Sleepy Hollow " fan, Pat somehow managed to stay awake long enough to minor in Naval Architecture. Never one to pass up a good fight or a five minute nap that usually lasted three hours, Sherb will carry his competitive spirit and his belief that nothing is impossible into his duties as an officer and leader. 486 JACK MARION STEVENS, JR. A proud son of the Lone Star state, schooled in New England and raised in a Navy family. Jack quickly caught up with the Academy ' s activities, especially the Choir, Glee Club and Musical Clubs Show. But it was his own barber shop quartet, " The Brass Buttons " that won him fame. Inspite of a memorable Plebe year. Glee Club trips, and girls. Jack has maintained a 3.0 CUM. A perennial wit, he ' s never at a loss for a jovial quip to give all a happy feeling. When not slashing Math courses, he could usually be found tinkering around his hi-fi gear. But no matter what his interests. Jack will always be a credit to his outfit because of his perserverance and friendliness. PATRICK ALLEN STROOP Pat or " Poop " , as many of his classmates and friends call him, came to Annapolis right out of Webb High School from the land of sunshine, girls and surf. Southern California. A Navy junior, Pat found no problems with Plebe year and settled down to his most serious problem, academics. Although a struggler, he still managed to find time for such diverse activities as the Brigade Hop Committee and Plebe soccer. Later, turning his athletic prowess to company s ports, he could always be counted on to give his best on the football, soccer, and Softball teams. With his pleasing person ality Pat has made many friends throughout the Brigade. His determination and zeal will make him an invaluable asset to the fleet. EDWARD GRANT WALLACE Ed left his heart in San Francisco but brought his thrill for sports and never ending good humor to Annapolis. Wally ' s sense of humor made Plebe year more bearable and an upperclass years more enjoyable for all he knew. A Navy athletic victory was Ed ' s biggest kick and he worked hard to see many of them with the B.A.C. He was himself responsible for many company victories in Softball and his favorite, fieldball. Wally made the most of the academic buildings for his studies m Nuclear Engineering and left Bancroft Hall as his place of rest, rest for the upcoming weekends w hich he always made the most of. Ed will surely be one of the Academy ' s greater contributions to the naval service. JOHN STANTON WHITE A Navy junior, John hails from the sunny Southern California city of Glendora. After making his way to the banks of the Severn from Pomona Catholic, " Snow " set out on his long anticipated Naval career. Though not known for his academic prowess, he could often be found giving E. I. to the classmate. An excellent tennis player in high school, John ' s athletic talents were funnelled towards anchoring the batt squash and tennis teams. Although an excellent performer on the blue trampoline, occasionally he could take time out from practice to spend some time with the " boob tube " Navy. No matter what John does, his conscientious attitude along with his quiet, yet friendly personality will bring him success. I J . H In Memoriam PHILIP BEEBE SCHWAB Phil came to the Navai Academy from Pacific Pahsades, Cahfornia. From the start, he always had a ready smile and soon proved his ability to handle academics with ease. Al- ways ready for a basketball game, Phil furthered his interest in dramatics, thereby showing himself to be a truly versatile person. As time progressed and the rigors of plebe and youngster year eased up, he began to commit himself with typical enthusiasm to success in the Navy. But then the cruel hand of fate descended and took Phil from us. We will always remember him as our classmate and buddy. EDWARD DAVIS SHARP Edward Davis Sharp came to the Naval Academy from Hattiesburg, Mississippi in June of 1964. Academics proved to be difficult for " Dave " , but they could not dampen his spirit and desire to become an Officer of Marines. Friends came easily to Dave. The niceness of his nature, sense of leadership and humble personality won for him many close relationships with his fellow men. His team spirit, love of people and love of God led him to be an active member of the Naval Academy Christian Association. Homecoming Weekend of 1967 brought a deep loss to the entire Brigade. Dave Sharp left us then, but he will long be remembered by his classmates and those around him be- cause . . . " no one else was ever quite like him. " 1 ALBUM k f!: :: ' - ' ; ;; ; Plebe Summer Vc.

The world knows well that they exist- somewhere— aboard dozens of cruising nuclear subma- rines. Their silent presence speaks distinctly to all poten- tial aggressors: An attack on the United States or its allies brings rapid and devas- tating retaliation. So the only reasonable reply to this message is peace. This situation grew out of action first taken by the Navy in 1955 when specifica- tions were written for an advanced weapon system centering around Polaris. Plans called for it to be both an up-to-date and upda table deterrent force. Lockheed responded as the missile systems manager. Working together with the Navy-plus over 10,000 firms -Lockheed helped develop and build Polaris. By fore- casting certain technological state-of-the-art advances, and allowing for incorpora- tion of others that might occur, the Navy and Lock- heed planned Polaris to be " ■■-y - extensible for years to come. Resulting from this total response, the first Polaris- armed submarine went on duty in 1960. This came three years ahead of the originally planned target date — and within budget. Since then, Polaris A-1 (range, 1,200 naut. mi.) has given way to A-2 (range, 1,500 naut. mi.) and A-3 (range, 2,500 naut. mi.) models. Now the Antelope program is honing further Polaris ' already keen capa- bilities. And the next step is Poseidon. Built at Lock- heed Missiles Space Com- pany, Sunnyvale, California, it will be launched by the same submarines as Polaris. By carrying twice the pay- load of Polaris with twice the accuracy, Poseidon ' s silent message to aggressors will be the clearest yet. Understanding present mission requirements and anticipating future ones, combined with technological competence and manufactur- ing craftsmanship, enables Lockheed to respond to the needs of the Navy in a divided world.

MOUNTAIN ROAD Congratulations to the Class of " 69 from WILLIAM A. SMITH CO. Actramid Some of our nation ' s newest ships are 20 years old. If you think the warships in our moth- ball fieet are somewhat past their prime, consider our merchant marine: Only one in five of the nation ' s mer- chant ships is under 10 years old. Two- thirds of them are too old. too small, too slow, too costly to operate to com- pete effectively with newer foreign ves- sels. At the present rate of replacement, and retirement of tonnage older than 25 years, our present dry cargo mer- chant fleet of 663 ships could be down to 260 vessels in 4 years. That ' s a dangerous situation. For our country is far from self-sufficient. Of 77 strategic materials needed to turn the wheels of American industry, we must import 66 — and already we ' re relying on foreign shipping for nearly 95% of our imports and exports. Mean- while other nations are building more ships than we are, Russia by 8 to 1. Russia and 13 others are outbuilding us in terms of tonnage. We must rebuild our merchant fleet now. No business is more urgent. Not even outer space. And unless we build the ships we need in U.S. yards, we can ' t be sure of getting either ships or shipping at a time when we might need them even more than now. With mod- ern yards on every U.S. coast, Todd is ready to do its share ... in shipbuilding, repairs, and conversion. Executive offices: One Broadway. New York, New York 10004.

The weavers in Lowell, Massachusetts have been famous for over a century. But no chambray. gingham, or voile they ever loomed holds a candle to their latest triumph. It ' s a weave of boron lilamenl. New processing techniques could make boron a key material of the future. Pound tor pound. Its got five times the tensile strength of steel. In filament form, it can be combined with metals or plastics to produce a stronger, more rigid structural framework, at about half the weight of current ones. For buildings, bridges, airplane frames. Right now, Avco ' s Applied Technology Division is developing a new technique for " weaving " boron (or any other filament). Not the kind of weaving you might do with cotton — boron is far too stiff to be inter- meshed in the conventional way. But by arranging the filaments in a special 3-D pattern, with strands running in three direc- tions, each perpendicular to the others, unique structures suddenly become a reality. And Avco scientists are hot on the trail of some other astonishing new spac3-age materials as well In fact, materials research is one of Avco ' s growth fields of the future. All in all. Avco is deeply involved in no less than 21 of the areas Forbes described re- cently as the ones on the threshold of the greatest dynamism over the next 15 years. Like space exploration. And aircraft en- gines. And broadcasting, insurance, finance and medical research. In a way. the current term, conglomer- ate, " doesn ' t really describe us accurately.

How do you master a million-mile frontier? Security depends more each day on being able to find and neutralize submarines in minutes, not hours, and in the depths of the seas, not their shallows. As the problem gets more complex, the solutions become more intricate. Sophisticated sonobuoys, challenging enough to design and deliver, are useless without the airborne analyzer than finds the pattern in their returns. Or without the navigation equipment that knows where you really are. Problems like this demand the system approach. The Sanders approach. Because Sanders appreciates the consequences, because our employees have the system engineering skills needed, we have made a continuing commitment to keep the seas secure.

E. RACHMIEL Managing Editor JIM SANDBERG Photo Editor Before I begin all the credits and thank-you ' s, I ' d like to nnake a few comments about what the LUCKY BAG means to me and what we ' ve tried to do with it. To me, a LUCKY BAG is the only permanent record of a year at the Academy. It should reflect upon the year as experienced by all four classes, and I have felt strongly about Brigade-wide participation in creating the LUCKY BAG. Along these lines we have tried to include more of the underclass in the ' 69 LUCKY BAG in order to make it more worthwhile to them. I have always felt a little sad upon walking into the reception room in Bancroft Hall and seeing one year old LUCKY BAGS with broken bindings. Therefore, we have greatly reduced the physical size of the ' 69 LUCKY BAG in hopes of prolonging its life and making it less unwieldy. This has been a year of many changes for the LUCKY BAG. In addition to making it smaller, we have created the Features and Year sections in order to keep up with contemporary college yearbook trends. The new Album section is an attempt to provide a four-year class history in a place where it does not detract from the dignity of the book, and at the same time, makes the advertisements more valuable. Credit for the very existence of this LUCKY BAG must be shared with my managing editor, Marshall Rachmiel. He has been my procurer for everything from group photos to office chairs and has taken so much of the administrative load as to leave me free to concentrate on the editorial content. Photo- editor Jim Sandberg has done a tremendous job at co-ordinating the photo staff and supplying our picture needs. In addition to editing the Features section, Mike Lounge helped considerably with miscellaneous jobs and headaches. For the most part, photo credits are impossible, but I would like to single out Greg Morris for his photos of Plebe summer, and Jim Sandberg for the cars and girls, both in the Feature section. One of the prime movers of this book has been Major C. Albans, U.S.M.C, of the English, History and Government Department, who has been our Officer Representative. Without his help we would have faltered many times. I would like to thank Tony Mumpower and John Breeding of the Delmar Company of Maryland, for their help and advice in all areas of production. My sincere gratitude goes to Dempsey Limbaugh and Miss Rita Pafford of Harris Ewing Photographers in Washington, D. C, who provided our senior portraits. I would like to thank Vince D ' Ambrosio, Wayne Wolfe, Oneal SmyrI, and especially Ralph Criminger, all with the Delmar Printing Company, and Joe Roche of the S. K. Smith Company. Finally, I would like to thank Ed Wilson, Fritz Hafner, Marion Warren, Lt. James Duffy, John Snakenberg, Terry Cullen, Coach Art Potter, and Coach Jim Gehrdes, each for their signi- ficant help in one way or another.
