Md., Feb. 21 — The United States Naval Acad- emy disclosed tonight that 13 midshipmen had admitted smoking marijuana in their rooms in Bancroft Hall, the academy dormitory, within the last two weeks.

" It was the second time ir the last 10 months that mid- shipmen had been caught smoking marijuana in the dor- mitory. After an investigation last June, four were dismissed from the academy. The latest incident came tc light when a fellow midship- man reported to hij superior« that he had " seen several mid- shipmen who appeared to be smoking marijuana " in a mid- shipman ' s rooin in Bancroft H- n •• ' 1967-1968 -Ding-Ding . iim »1. !l rA V 1968-1969 I ' ; li II 1968-1969 mm June 4. 1969 I V rf ¥- Ba fpii 5- X lune 1969 June 1969 i July 1969 tflfi i July 21. 1969 Mediterranean 7 The Good Life iStif f ifli. j Ki raPS :vr .,, - .

The only differ- ence between this and other rallies was that this one most closely repre- sented a " sit-inV unheard of in the military sphere of influence. There was, at that time, a serious lack of communications between the class and the system which that class felt was outmoded. At the beginning of this academic year Captain Robert Coogan became the new Commandant. Due to a tremendous effort on his part (coupled with the earnest endeavors of many members of the class) in an attempt to eliminate the " sickness " which brought about the dissent, the Acade- my has been altered fantastically. Still in existence are the rigid disci- plines, the military training, and the surface gripes about reveille, meals, and restrictions. However, the deep-seeded protests are on the way out, and the communication up and down is far better than it has ever been. A great part of the reason for the change is Captain Coogan, and we thank him. i Commandant . . . At many colleges — potential varsity players . . . here — sandlotters . . January . . .

Lippman Wdshinslon Pcist Sidff Wrilcr Six midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy and a West Point cadet went to court here yesterday in an effort to breai the ser -ice academies ' require- ment of compulsory chapel at- tendance. In a lawsuit drafted by attor- neys from the American Civil Liberties Union, they chal- lenged the requirement as a violation of the Constitution ' s ban on establishment of reli- gion. Lawrence Speiser. director of ACLU ' s Washington chap- ter, said the lawsuit was pre- pared after a " year-long fruit- less effort by the ACLU to in- duce the military services to change their regulations. " Defense Department spokes- men refused even to confirm that such a policy exists. Be- cause the suit has been filed, they said, they were author- ized to say only that " our legal counsel is studying it. " Punishment Cited But the middies and the cadet say in their petition to the court that students at three service academies are subject to " stringent administrative punishment " if they fail to ap- pear at chapel on Sundays One midshipman. Speiser said received 50 demerits and a 10 hour walking lour as punish ment. The Coast Guard Acade my is not mentioned in the suit. None of the plaintiffs in the case is from the Washington metropolitan area, but the suit was filed here because the seat of the federal government is here. Four of the midshipmen are under 21. and required an adult stand-in to sue as their " next friend. " He is the Rev. Robert J. Drinan S.|.. dean of the Boston College Law School. Speiser said Father Drinan agreed to enter the case at the request of the ACLU. All three service secretaries. Army, Air Force and Navy, are named as defendants, along with Secretary of Defense Mel- vin Laird. No Air Force Acade- my cadets are among the plain- tiffs, but the suit asks that any ruling on the chapel attend- ance requirement be made ap- plicable to the Colorado Springs school as well. " No Religious Test " The compulsory chapel rule violates the Constitution in two ways, the suit says. .Article VI provides that " no religious test shall ever be re- quired as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States. " Because the students are officer candi- dates, the suit says, it is a viola- tion of that article to make church attendance a precondi- tion of their commissions. In addition, the suit says, the rule violates the First Amend- ments ban on " establishment of religion. " The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1947 that neither slates nor the federal government " can force or influence a per- son to go to or to remain away from church against his will or force him to profess a belief or disbelief in anv religion. " That rule, the ACLU suit says, should be made applica- ble to the service academies as well as to other branches of government. Most of the plaintiffs, the suit says " , " are sincere follow- ers of one or another of the major religions, and it is not the desirability of religious ser- vices but only the compulsory nature thereof that they object to.

Leave was, as always, great; and even the professional aspects of summer training didn ' t bother too many of us. There was a more mature outlook to the training (3 C Mickey Mouse was to a large extent eliminated). Plebe summer at the Country Club of Annapolis was still gruesome, but better. 2 C not on the de- tail were again completely confused, and 1 C cruise was the customary zoo. The moonshot was a tremendous tribute to man ' s technology, and weather was, as always, " beautiful. " By the end of the summer Little Creek was an obscenity, a certain " Jolly Green Giant " w ' as labeled all sorts of names, and it was good to be home from Europe. li Seotember novelty of new stripes and positions soon wore off. There were the cus- tomary reveillie games; the Hunter and the hunted. P-rades were their usual best. Football . . . well, we tried hard! Little Anthony and the Imperials put on the show of the month, (Excluding Saturday noon meal formations, of course: " Sideburns could be shorter, some haircuts are marginal, and shoes need work. But, otherwise the platoon looked pretty good. " ) October Rlng-a-ding-ding. By October the Brigade had once again returned to the hide- ous and engulfing element known as " routine. " The " Log " magazine had already started its climb to the Number One conversation piece of company wardrooms, academic classrooms, and interested friends! Very few of us got to witness the Vietnam Moratorium in D. C. but some very interesting conversations found their way into the academic classroom. Pittsburgh and Rutgers football games offered a chance for most of the Brigade to get away from the monastery for brief weekends, and the alumni got to see the lone Navy victory (over Virginia). Halloween was " groovy? " November with the burning desire for victories over Army in our hearts, we braved the winter ' s frost as the new heating plant failed to heat. A trip to Miami for some and Vets Day leave for most offered real bright spots, while the Jerry Butler con- cert and the Masqueraders kept the entertainment decent. The pace was quick- ening and the victories over Army apparently brought back the heat. The big one in Philadelphia ruined Thanksgiving, but the parties afterward ushered in De- cember quite nicely. ' nppprpiVjpT- Before even recovering from Army, we were assaulted by the Academic De- partment and all those papers and other " odds and ends " which were suddenly due. We received a tremendous (but beautiful) shock to our systems when Capt. Coogan announced a long-needed major change to First Class liberty (0200 expi- ration with a 50 mile radius for Saturday); he was immediately named Man- of-the-Year by the class of ' 70. Registration without computers turned out to be the all-time zoo, and the Graduate Record Exam was a generally accepted lost cause. The annual production of the " Messiah " was again wonderfully done, and completed the pre-Christmas mood-making. Merry Christmas to all . . . " Oh boy! " A new year and a chance to excel. " Mate, take his name . . . " Oh well, scratch off ' 70. The snow made intramurals interesting and " individual workouts " became the word of the day. The Commandant contributed by his " wardroom speeches " and a little thing called underclass car-riding. After turn- ing in term papers, formal labs, and other miscellania. final exams almost seemed like R R. But. they took their toll. Then came the Chapel suit. Feelings in the Brigade ran the complete spectrum due to rumors of all kinds and the indi- viduality of each midshipman. In general, however, most wanted to see the com- pulsory nature of chapel services ended, but regretted heavily the way in which the whole situation was handled. January Due to a few well-spaced breaks a nd the much more reasonable liberty poli- cies, the Dark Ages were slightly more illuminated than in recent memory. The Musical Club show and ever present dances helped pass time until Washing- tons Birthday afforded us a break. When 100th night came around it was truly the end of a tradition. The all-time case of misrepresentation gained national in- terest as " all the midshipmen " donned their wigs for another publicity shocker. It seemed very strange that there were still a lot of short haired midshipmen on liberty (must have been the plebes). The Grass Roots finished it up with quite a concert, after we had done another number on Army. February While many of the varsity teams were proving their prowess the Brigade Box- ing Tournament took over the spotlight. Spring leave was beautiful except the countless questions from everyone like, " What are you people doing up there? We ' ve been reading about it everywhere. " The return from spring brought with it " legality " to 1 C cars, and those who got caught were still restricting. Easter Sunday saw a few scraps of snow, and the coast button had been located (it was locked up in the weapons department). March Spring started to appear and the sod was beautiful. The lacrosse team started its ascent to a share of the National Title. Masqueraders once again proved their talent and NAFAC showed there were many different ways to mix business with pleasure. April Uniforms changed, 2 C showed that a Ring Dip and the Ring Dance were not exactly the same, and the company drill competition — forget it! The xerox ma- chines proved that they could overcome the Weapons Department, and finally there was June Week. Herndon excited the freshman class immensely. P-rade atmosphere reeked of finality (among other things), and the virgin cannons still didn ' t go off but nobody really seemed to mind. The formals were attended mostly by underclass, and varsity teams completed a tremendous year against Army. The Annapolis kids got some " outstanding " caps at graduation. It ' s been a helluva a year, but it will always be a much better memory than experience. May-June Chronology rhe photo staff made the book possible by taking approximate- ly 20,000 pictures of nearly ev- erything: the book can never be better than the pictures in it.

IM GOING OUT AND KILL SOIVIETHINC Since the dawn of history, man has sought after idols — Tangible objects which represent the superhuman qualities he knows he will never possess. All too often he has tried to elevate his fellow man to this lofty position in order to have a living example of near " Godliness. " When the object of " worship " fails to be a " god " there is panic. In a time such as the present, when youth, government, and the military sys- tem have come under severe criticism leveled at them from widely varied sources, the service academies naturally become a main focal point of interest. While one source of attack condemns them for being extraordinary, another source punishes them for their normality. The Class of 1970, right or wrong, famous or infamous, has proven in the past four years that its individual members are, in the final analysis, merely human beings — damn good human beings - but human beings, nonetheless. The staff of the 1970 Lucky Bag has attempted to represent this humanity. If any idols have fallen, catalogs are always available. LMT Three Hundred Eighty-four : i I il rK.._ " . ' % ifferent?

Hoving been on the Superintendent s List every semester at Novy, he could go into any branch of the Navy he desires. His stomach and the desire to be in the real Navy rules out Navy Air, Navy Line is his heart s throb! Also, much on his mind are those weekends in D. C. at his favorite hangout, the C. R., with a girl and a flowing pitcher. With a major in Foreign Affairs, Bearstein, as he is known by his closer friends, has other interests; the usual girls, and the nof-so-usuol, classical music. Bill also enjoys golf, handball, volleyball, and is a pro- fessional pad rat. If oil it tokes to be a good Naval Officer IS hard work and desire, the Navy is getting far more than that in Bill. EULOGID CONCEPTION BERMUDES CHARLES STEPHEN FARRELL, JR. Arriving from Agat, Guam, after attending the College of Guam for a year. Eloy arrived at Navy expecting only a rigorous academic routine. After being com- pletely disillusioned on the first day of Plebe summer, he quickly adopted himself to the situation, and has mode the best of it. As an aero minor, Eloy has his hands full, but somehow has always monaged to make the Superintendent s List. Always a buff for sports, Eloy contributed his best efforts to the Compa- ny ' s volleyball, basketball, and softboll teams. When not engaged in sports or academics, one only had to look as far as the pad to find Eloy. Following gradua- tion, Eloy plons a career in Navy line. Undoubtedly, his drive and dedication to duty will make him a valuable asset to the fleet. JOHN VINCENT CALKINS Coming to the Naval Academy from the green moun- tains of Vermont, John traded in his skiis for a rifle and the rigors of military life. Plebe year posed no problems, so he moved on to bigger and better things. Majoring in chemistry gave him a heavy classroom and laboratory schedule, but this didn ' t dampen his affinity for athletics. His tolents were felt in many sports. When he could not be found in the afternoons on the athletic fields, chances were that he wos bur- ied under o heap of blankets in his room. Never both- ered by the problems that plague many others, John hod no trouble making good grades at the Acodemy. A happy-go-lucky fellow who knows how to en|oy the finer things in life, John is certain to be a success in Marine Air. As a Navy |unior, Charlie came to the Academy from a list of hometowns a mile long, with sunny Miami being his last and favorite. Always willing and able to help a friend in need, he could be found anytime of the day giving advice that was more often beneficial than not. Although the academic department extend- ed his tour at Novy, he never gove up the fighting spirit that charocterized him in all he did, and earned him the respect and admiration of others who found the academics a little easier. Whether the going was rough or not, Charlie could always be seen with his winning smile which was probably an expression for his excellent taste in female companionship. Charlie is planning a career in Navy Air, and if his quick wit and personality follow him, he ' ll be a welcome oddition to any wardroom. Four Hundred Fifteen CHARLES BAXTER FITCHET Chuck, known to his friends as Rabuf, and to his more intimate contacts as Baxter, dodged the draft for the student revolution by coming to USNA after a year at the University of Massachusetts. Actually, the pros- pects of playing soccer for the Big Blue " team lured him to USNA. Though infrequently seen in a varsity game, he has always played - to the wall when given the chance. Chuck, with that Eagle, Globe, and Anchor look in his eye, aspires to be an aviator in o branch office of the Navy. With the Luck o ' the Irish, " and a certain golden orifice, he has always come out on top in his never ending battle for truth, lustice, and a 2.00. Chuck will moke an outstanding Marine - at least he hod better, with his aquatic abil- ity. RICHARD MICHAEL FOLGA Dick, or " Smudge " (for his natural affinity to water), has made long strides since coming to the Academy from Buffalo, New York. Arriving in Annapolis out of high school, he has never hod any trouble adopting to academics at the Academy, maintaining a 3.0 since Plebe year. Always an athlete in high school, Dick ex- celled on the company ' s volleyball and lightweight football teams. Here at Navy, this moth ma|or ' s gre- garious personality ond his never-ending search for the fabled " coast button " has won for him numerous friends and provided many laughs for his classmates - especially his wordroom associates. Upon gradua- tion, Dick will surely find his way to Pensacola (unless he has to swim there - in that cose he will |oin the Silent Service) in search of wine, women, and air- planes; and the Navy Air will acquire a fine officer. JAMES BERTRAM FREEMAN Coming from North Philadelphia, Bert began a bril- liant career at Navy dimmed only by intermittent swimming tests. Otherwise, his athletic ability earned him to the fencing team (foil) where he lettered youngster year, and later picked up an N-stor, not to mention being on All-Americon. Little things didn ' t bother Bert, except for the perennial lack of mail from his OAO. From Plebe summer to graduation, it was always the same story, " Man, why doesn ' t that girl write? " However, our Main Man " found other diversions; like the two dates that showed up on the same weekend. And, there was the soul group " The J.G. ' s, " and the Glee Club. Bertie was a truly dedicat- ed midshipman (dedication is his middle name). This along with his liberal outlook and ability to make the best of every situation makes him the finest person I know. Four Hundred Sixteen . % ' f4 li % It t 1P,-T ' W ' r BRUCE JOHN GREGOR Bruce came to the Naval Academy straight from high school in Virginia Beach, Virginia, ancJ immediately set himself to the task of becoming an outstonding member of the Brigade, He was elected class secre- tary in his Plebe year, and proved himself an able worker by handling the doss duties as well as main- taining a respectable class standing and porticipatmg on the Plebe wrestling team. Bruce maintained his determined attitude throughout his academy years, and had the dubious pleasure of being a squad leader for the Class of 72 Plebe summer, earning forty de- ments for efforts with the new midshipmen. Upon graduation, Bruce plans to marry his lovely home- town sweetheart, and serve the Navy as on aviator. JOHN JOSEPH GROSSENBACHER John came to the Academy straight from a Chicago high school. Although by nature. Gross, " as he is better known, is fairly quiet, he is always busy. Here at the Academy, Gross has been o conscientious stu- dent: no matter what time of the day, it seems he can be found hitting the books. However, a Chem minor hosn t kept John from taking port in athletics, includ- ing Softball, fieldboll, boxing, gymnastics, and scuba diving. Although he claims he will be an eternal bach- elor, he hasn ' t turned down a chance to drag when the opportunity presented itself. All who know him agree that Gross will moke an excellent officer, no matter what branch of the service he elects to enter. JEFFERSON DANIEL KAYLOR, JR. Jeff come to us from the South, where he grew up and graduated from T. R. Miller High School in Brew- ton, Alabama. The weekend local D. J. at home, he corned his radio enthusiasm to the console of WRNV, ond became known throughout Mother Bancroft as ■ The Southern Gentleman. " He was on eager partici- pator in intramural sports and exercises on the blue trampolme - Z Power. Jeff s chosen field of study is Naval Management and his career interests lie m Naval Aviation. Upon graduation he intends to return to the Heart of Dixie where he II marry his lovely southern belle, Terry, and en|oy some leave time JOHN DEAN LEGIDAKES Coming from Philadelphia, Dean started his career at Navy ofter making it through NAPS. His sense of humor and verbal ability made him decide to take on foreign affairs as his minor, and he did quite well in it. He has been on active member of the company s soccer and basketboll teams and brigade boxing. Deon con always be counted on to do a good |ob. Never having any problems with girls, Deon learned to budget his weekends evenly. When on leave and not dragging, he would be working diligently on his 1958 Zundopp motorcycle, his pride and |oy. Deon hasn ' t mode up his mind whether to go Navy Air, Sur- face Line, or Marine Corps. But, regardless of what he chooses, we con be assured he will make a fine offi- RICHARD DENNIS MacBAIN Dennis, hoiling from Rosell, Illinois, blissfully entered the Naval Academy after he had spent a year at the University of Illinois. Minoring in French, he hopes that someday he con become a Naval Attoche. Mac s ' constant motivation ond keen interest hove kept him on top every semester in the battle with the infamous Academic Department. Easy going and well liked by his classmates, Dennis was always counted on as tough competitor on and off tlie athletic fields. At the some time, his over gentlemanly ap- proach to the fairer sex has served to keep him o firm believer in the stotement thot life is o bowf of cherries. " Mac ' s many outstanding assets will assure his success in his career as o Naval Line Officer. GEORGE LARS MOE George, known as ' Moe, came to the Navol Acade- my with many goals in mind. Arriving from West Or- ange, New Jersey, he set out with his best efforts to hove an enjoyable stay. On the athletic field, George put forth his best ond helped the company soccer and fieldboll teams to outstanding seasons. The light would always burn late for this oceanogrophy stu- dent, because he could not finish his Playboy, Time, or Newsweek mogozmes during the doy. His locker looks like record shop, and his mind wos alwoys concen- trating on wine, women, and song. One of his most prided accomplishments was being one of the found- ers and chartered members of the back rank on his- toric Worden Field. George, also, hos a serious side and is very professionally minded. He hopes to fly after graduation, and will ' make on outstanding Naval Officer in whotever he does. Four Hundred Seventeen GREGORY LEE MORRIS Greg entered the Naval Academy immediately after graduation from Sarasota Higfi School in Sarasota, Florido. He is primarily interested in oceanography, the sub|ect in which he is minoring. Greg s hobby is photography. Since Plebe year he has been a very prominent member of the Lucky Bag Staff, and is one of the 1970 editors. Greg wai very diligent in his studies, and has spent many long hours in the books and sleeping in the classroom. He has always gotten good grades. He also lives it up on the social side, al- ways going someplace different every leave, and, he IS definitely an avid party goer. Greg will undoubtedly be a success in whatever he does. MORRISON LESLEY GABLE Leoving Winter Park, Florida, and its worm, sunny en- vironment wasn ' t easy for Les who thinks no Eastern Beach scene can compare with Daytona Beach. Not bragging of academic genius, les always managed to get by with a minimum amount of studying. He al- ways upheld the trodition of no studying during the weekend. Les kept himself busy with the Drum and Bugle Corps, Class Hop Committee, Ring Dance Com- mittee, WRNV Radio, and various intramural sports. ■ Gabes ' favorite hobby was seeing if he could be the lost person to leave the mess hall. Les has made a definite decision to spend time at Pensacoio with aviation after graduation - Navy Air and Florida is about the best combination anyone could find. DENNIS ARTHUR NAPIOR Dennis, or " Napes " as he was called by his class- mates, came to the Naval Academy right after fin- ishing on illustrious career at Valle|0 High School in Valle|0, California, where he starred in football, bas- ketball, and baseball. Napes " quickly found the aca- demic atmosphere to his liking and compiled grades good enough for either the Superintendents or Dean ' s List. Ma|oring in Navol Engineering, Dennis undertook a heavy classroom schedule, but still devoted a good deal of time to the athletic field, where he consistent- ly excelled in football and Softball. He was always available for a quick game of handball as well. Den- nis ' high academic standing hos led him to anticipate a challenging career in Nuclear Power, in which he will undoubtedly excel as he has in his four years ot Annapolis. ROBERT WILLIAM NESS An ex-long-haired rock n-roll guitarist and track star from Red Wing, Minnesota, Bob ' s time at the Acade- my has been spent well. Keeping an academic aver- age high enough to moke Superintendent ' s List rather consistently and Dean ' s List on occasion, while at the same time proving his athletic abilities, he has shown what a well rounded person he is. Setting intramural track records, and playing intramural soccer and touch football, he has contributed greatly to the sports program at the Academy. Known for his wild exploits in high school, the Academy has hod a seem- ingly sobering " effect upon him, turning him into a serious minded individual, faithful to his friends and his girl, and with nuclear power or P. G. school to look forword to upon graduation. WILLIAM AUGUSTUS NURTHEN, IV The thriving metropolis of Ridley Pork, Pennsylvania, can take pride in at least one of its offspring. Bill Nurthen. With a desire to be something special in his heart. Bill, or " Nurd, " as he is known by his class- mates, came to the Academy to prove himself, and he succeeded. Football was always Bill ' s first love, and he played it long and hard. Always an avid sports fan. Bill was a walking encyclopedia of facts on nearly every team, past and present. Bill studied diligently to attain Superintendent ' s List honors while completing a minor in Foreign Affairs. Academics, however, did not prevent him from dragging a certain loss from the Garden State whenever possible. His second class year. Bill was an active member of the Plebe Indoc- trination Committee, and was instrumental in estab- lishing the new E. D. Policy (he had to leave his mark somehow). An outgoing personality and an abun- dance of professional knowledge will moke Bill on outstanding Naval officer in whatever branch he elects to pursue. RUSSELL CLARK OLSON Russ came to the Academy from Libby, Montana, well equipped for the four challenging years ahead of him. From the start, Russ ' interests were in Aviation and a minor in Aerospace Engineering did not keep him from the Superintendent ' s List and those extra week- ends. When not playing his bugle for the D B, Russ could be found on the basketball court or the blue trampoline. Taking advantage of his 6 ' 4 " frame, Ole was a member of the Brigade Championship Basket- ball Team his second class year. Easy-going Russ was well liked by his classmates (especially when they wanted to borrow one of his many records). With his good-natured outlook, his abundant interest in flying, and his capacity to comprehend technical sub|ects, Russ IS marked for success. Four Hundred Eighteen L h % ' f - K " i ;.

He always had a good word for the uppercloss and Plebes olike as he strolled through the halls, novel in one hand ond that famous coke con in the other. Suffering from the ups and downs during his boxing coreer, Denny discovered his colling in the soiling squadron in which he become on avid portici- pont. Assuming his favorite studying position on the pod, Denny would curl up with any sort of reading material other than his applied science books. One had to admire his luck eoch time the semester s end popped up! No matter which branch of the service Denny chooses, the Navy is getting a truly enthusios- tic member. PATRICK JOHN SLAHERY Pot, a Navy junior, has traveled all over the notion, but now calls Colifornio his home state. Slots, as he is better known, came to the Trade School with one thought on his mind - flying. Although, Pot studies fairly hard, he is better known for his athletic endeav- ors, for he is a natural othlete. However, since Plebe Year he has speciolized in gymnostics. He can always be found working out in one way or another, from walking back from the wardroom on his hands to doing his own set of Navy Ten ' before hitting the pod. One thing is for certoin. Pots conscienciousness, whether it be studying or getting a Varsity N will en- sure the Navy of getting o fine officer. JERRY LYNN SPENCER Jerry come to the Academy from Dearborn Heights, Michigan. His likes and mannerisms, inherent to the area from which he comes, hove added to the variety of, ond mode much more interesting the everydoy life of oil of us. Jerry, or Spence, os he is colled by many of his friends, has shown himself to be a serious minded individual, always expressing his ideas, and saying what he thinks to be right. Beneath his happy-go-lucky self, Jerry is o devout Christion, and a person true to his own ideals. He was the man who took the world by surprise and decided to go Corps on service selection night. They hove gamed o voluoble man. Four Hundred Nineteen WILLIAM HOWARD STEUSSY From the small Texas hill country town of New Brounfels, Bill come to the Boat School with a great love for wicJe open spaces and o distaste for large cities. Coming straight out of high school, " Steuss ' met initial difficulties with the Academic Department. When questioned about this, he ' ll tell you that he is a profound believer in the theory that everything above 2.0 is overkill. His ma|or interests here lay in the field of ofhietics with a concentration on the racket sports. Bills present goal is the Naval Aviator Program and a certain someone who makes the lure of Pensocola twice as attractive. STEPHEN RAY THOMPSON Steve came to the Academy from Fort Payne, Ala- bama. There may not be much deep blue water around there, but somehow-or-other he arrived here determined to be a Naval officer. He is recognized as one of the hardest workers in the company. When he sits down to work his skinny (that sliderule) is a real weapon in his hands. Many of us owe port of our grades to the homework he worked so hard to com- plete. Tommy en|oys soccer, fieldboll, and handball. He has a way of meeting the real nice girl s, and con- sequently, he IS out of circulation much of the time. Tommy likes that soft, mood music, and loves that pad. He can be tight with his money, but he is always ready to help a friend. His drive to win, and his deter- mination to excel forecast a successful career for him in the Navy. JAMES BARRY WADDELL Wads came to us from York Harbor, Maine, where he was president of his high school and lettered in football, basketball, cross country and track. Getting the |ump on his classmates from the start, Barry managed to moke Dean s List and gam four stripes in his Plebe year. Changing minors from Oceanography and German to Foreign Affairs, he had to overload consistently, but still managed to retain his standing on the Superintendent ' s List. Academics, though, didn ' t detract from his active participation in many intramural sports, and his desir e to help other ' mids " with their problems. With his background in diploma- cy. Wads ' should be able to work or talk his way to the top in his chosen field of endeavor. THOMAS MICHAEL WIHKAMP Mike, on Air Force brat, was so thrilled about his ap- pointment to LJSNA, and his love for the place, that he decided to sign up for the five-year plan. A love for adventure, and a slight distaste for books combined to make Mike ' s stay of the Academy an experience few of those who knew him will forget. ' Whit " ex- celled in company sports and could always be counted on to make " the play " on the athletic field. He was always ready to help anyone in any way, and could always be counted on as a friend. After graduation, Mike plans to devote himself to his New York wife and Navy Air.

Four Hundred Twenty two • 2. wu ' m % K:%i ' : ' CHARLES RAYMOND BACHTELL Charlie came to Annapolis from the oil capital of the United States, Miciland, Texas However, this does not mean that he was greasy while at USNA. Playfully called Pigpen ' by his classmates, due to certain analogous traits with o well known comic strip char- octer, his distinguished characteristic was a five o ' clock shadow that looked like midnight at the North Pole all year round. A staunch Baptist who would not drink, smoke, sweor, lie, cheat, steal, or read his Bap- tist Standard, Charlie ' s ability to be in the wrong place at the wrong time accounted for his presence at several weekend Naval Academy functions during his stay Always good ot academics and sports, Charlie ' s mom interests, however, lay in the field of human relations. Charlie will always be remembered for his mottos " A house is not a home " ond " A loaf of bread, a |ug of wine, and a thou, under a bough, wow. " JOHN ROBERT BAKER John Robert Baker, commonly called Bob or " Bakes, " came to the Academy from Galveston, Texas. He is one of the few NAPS sters who stayed, and olthough he hos had his ups ond downs in both academics and military life, he has firmly established himself in the company as o well liked and copable individual. Bob IS on Aerospace Minor and has been on and off the Superintendent s List since Plebe year. Since Bakes " is Chairman of our Christmas Card Committee, and a Unitarian, there is no telling what our Christmas cords will look like. After graduation. Bob plans on going to graduate school ond then on to Pensacolo for flight training. Although the Navy moy not be ready for Bob, he is ready for the Navy and someday will be an outstonding pilot and officer. CHRISTOPHER BENJES It IS frequently said that there is an extremely strong force surrounding the Navol Academy wtiich constant- ly pulls on all who ore associated with it. Chris is o living example of this, for a little over eighteen years ofter he was born in the Acodemy hospital, he was yanked from civilian life in Warminster, Pennsylvonio, bock to his beloved birthplace. After overcoming the difficulties of his first semester, Chris took on avid interest m his mo|or, moth, attaining both the Super- intendent ' s List and the Deans List regularly He was very enthusiastic about company intramural sports after o successful, but tinng year of Plebe track. Chris hopes to attend Post Graduate school after gradua- tion, ond then on to Pensacolo and Navy Air. ROBERT PHER COFFIN A life on the beaches of Southern California prepored Bo b for USNA, and he was quick to ossociote surfing and skoteboarding with the system He soon struck up on acquointonce with the Berbers of Bancroft until he got exclusive after-hour haircuts. He monoged to pass Y.P. s with only minor damage to the boots, al- though the some cannot be said of marching, because of certain post-revelling June Week Parades. After o summer of professional training in San Juan, he spent one filling the Plebes with his knowledge of the sys- tem. The next year he took time out from o rigorous math routine for an occosionol Wedding and House Porty, although he didn t quite make the top ten. Groduation will find him blindly heading for the sea and Navy Line. Four Hurtdred Iwenfythree V STEVEN JOSEPH CRANNEY Steve come from Edwords AFB, California, two weeks late and never caught up. He was ready to leove 18 flours after he got here. His father and girl talked him into stoying. Steve ' s grease zoomed upward to Bat- talion Ad|utant Plebe year and zoomed downward youngster year, after the OD (his company officer) caught him with empty booze bottles. He is engaged, and his girl moved out from California in August ' 68. Steve ' s interests are Forestry, Navy Air, Space Explo- ration, hunting and fishing. Jeeps, and his Honey. He used to be called on animal, " because of his gross mannerisms and the company he kept (roommates) but hos since lost all. They call him Nook, because he has enough cools to fill every Nook and Cranney. JAMES CUTLER DAWSON, JR. Cutler sadly crept into the Naval Academy from Rich- mond, Virginia knowing little or nothing about his new way of life. Shortly thereafter, he found that being a Plebe was not one of the most enjoyable ex- periences in life. Nonetheless, he managed to hide himself well and survived the year with few scratch- es. As an upperclossman, his days were spent in the quest of acodemica, " developing on interest in Polit- ical Science, and after some found him on the varsity tennis courts. The evenings were spent in study with many a bull session in between. Graduation will find Cutler loining the Navy Line Team. ■jef y ,f , ' , ' . ' .

Taking most problems in stride, he managed to maintain a casual approoch to his four years here. Although a knee operation brought an abrupt halt to his football and track endeavors, it simultaneously helped to bring up his academics, and he managed to make the Superintendent ' s List during second class year. An avid member and instructor for the SCUBA club, John dedi- cated many of his pre-reveille hours to Scuba instruc- tion, but mode up the lost hours of sleep threefold during the remainder of the time. John plans to make Naval Aviation a career. MICHAEL WALTER DeLOREY Mike, the dirty old man of the company, spent many years enjoying life before coming to us. Being the old- est man in the company and along with his many years in the fleet has developed many traits in his character that are ahead of his classmates, such as on extreme propensity for the older more mature type woman. He is the least cynical of anyone in the com- pany, and he always has a good word for everyone. He con always be found helping others to leorn the techniques that will enable them to do well on their swimming tests. His academic conquests always took a poor second to his conquests of wine, women, and song, although not usually in that order. The only thing he looks forward to now is getting back to the real Navy. ALEXANDER UWTON FORD, III Having spent two years at Louisiana State University in the safety of the Phi Gam house prior to his arrival at Annapolis, Sandy mode the odiustment to military life with surprising ease. His college background en- abled him to happily pursue his favorite academic endeavor, economics, and he strove for his major in this field. Not content to simply follow the routine of midshipman life, Sandy exploited his numerous tal- ents in the realm of extracurricular activities. Broth- er Ford " donated his voice to both the Chapel Choir and the Glee Club, and his economic prowess caused him to |oin the Photo Club and the Gun Club where he sow the possibilities of saving a few coins while at the same time contributing to these organizations. Sandy carried much more than his share of the " weight " m company affairs, and volunteered for the thankless duties of company librarian and of playing Sonta in the Annual Christmas Party, a task to which he was naturally inclined. A potential line officer, Sandy promises to be a fine addition and a welcome contribution to the fleet. ijr Four Hundred Twenty fou l !|if . |f ' .i l| l | i ,|. « H I| % %■ % X ' W THOMAS CHARLES JEMISON Academics were always Toms main interest at the acaciemy, with special emphasis in the area of proba- bility, anci its applications to gome theory. Doing much private research in this fieW, Tom cooperated with many of his classmates within the company who shared these interests. Tom ' s extracurricular activities included the French Club with its frequent visits to neorby Woshingfon, D. C, ond four years on the track team as a javelin thrower. He olso enjoyed basketball and pool in his spare time, when he wasn ' t under the influence of the Pod Monster. Tom always believed that the crew cut look was o necessity, but not for everyone! After groduotion, Tom ' s plons include earn- ing a masters degree in mathematics and entering the Novy Flight Program. DEAN LESUE KNUTH Nootsie hailed from the Beer State, Wisconsin, and brought with him interests in obout everything that ' s ever been tried. Coming to us as o baseball star after attending the University of Wisconsin, Dean stuck with the program for a year before losing interest in fovor of Eost Coast girls and the proverbial good time. ' Knoot s weekend odventures left him with lit- tle reason to be envious of his old college doys, except when he was Varsity restricting for things like owning houses and cars. Being organist and leader of the JoyGees, and one of the heod officers of R R or- ganization here, became just one more tolent which gave him on outlet from Midshipman life. Dean is a born organizer, and leods in onything that he is inter- ested in. Whatever he chooses as o field in the Navy, you con bet it will be where the action is. Four Hundred Iwenty-five WALTER FRANCIS MARTIN, JR. Rock came to us from Minnesota anci brought with him the skiing spirit that later caused many of his classmates to become ski bums. Unable to replace the Bancroft System with one of his own, he tolerated the thing, and managed to make it through without spending too many weekends away from the ski slopes. He took academics seriously and managed to make the Supermtendent ' s list often. Rock spent his afternoons during Plebe summer boxing for the Bat- talion Team. During the academic years, he enjoyed participating in intramural sports, particularly foot- ball and Softball. Escaping to the Grand Tetons during the short summer leaves. Rock substituted mountain climbing for skiing as his favorite pastime. One of the Big Bad Ten, Wally looks forward to a challenging career on the seven seas. PAUI. LLOYD MELLOTT, JR. Paul came to the Academy from a small Maryland town, called Funkstown. He received his appointment from his state representotive. Paul come to the Acad- emy with the idea of fulfilling his military obligotion and acquiring a college education. Although he has not excelled in any particular field, he has been a steady performer over all. He is minonng in the Man- agement field, and is very active in the intramural program. After his second class summer experiences, he has decided to moke Navy Air his service selection. Shortly after graduating, Paul plans on marrying, and eventually acquiring a masters degree in manage- ment. By then, he feels he will be ready to determine whether or not to moke the Navy a life-time career. RODNEY LEE NIEBUHR " Niebs, " known to some as " hayseed, " because of a form heritage in Iowa, brought a bit of the country to USNA. He went through a Plebe year full of harrow- ing " experiences, " harvesting " the " fruits " of post knowledge mode him " outstanding in his field " of minor, mechanical engineering. Considering he came to Severn ' s Shores with a B.S. degree (having moved so much of it in Iowa), he caught on fast and soon adapted to Navy life. One of two men in the company to win the coveted black " N " 3 c year, he is now working towards his merit badge in the 2nd Compo- nys " spirit " club. Extracurricular activities took little of his time, but he did become on accomplished blow- er in the D B playing sentimental favorites like Di- ablo, Diablo, and more Diablo. Four Hundred Twenf, iix ' - ' . . ■ ' m ' p-i % r Om WILLIAM PATRICK OVERSON A True Gentleman " from the South, Pot spent two years grooming at Tulane University before leaving the simple life of the New Orleans plantation to tackle the dangers of the sea. Never one to over- emphasize academics, Pat divided his time between the clutching embrace of the Pod Monster and the in- tramural fields where his talents at quarterback won mony a contest. On weekends Pat found time for trip- ping out with the Glee Club or even on occosionol House Party. His favorite song will always be re- membered OS I fought the law, and the low won. ' After spending two en|oyable summers, first as o summer squad leader and then on a Belgium Ex- change Cruise, Pat looks forward to the summer of 1970 which |ust may find him in Pensacolo. JOHN TIMOTHY SHANNON Tim ' s salty background includes his spending his younger years in the bustling seaport of Butte, Mon- tana. After coming to Annapolis, he discovered the newest technological marvel of the East - television - ond immediately began to copitolize on its value. His grades hove been known to fluctuate wildly, from just above sea level to well into the Dean s List, but with his freshman year behind him, they have done nothing but spiralled upward. He has become the company ' s leading authority on wines, and his savvy for chronogrophy and story telling has led him to specialize in the field of history. When he was not oc- cupied with his studies or with the wardroom gang and the tube, " Shanz managed to gain Brigade-wide fome for his invincibility on the handball court. Upon graduation, Tim plans to trade in his snowshoes for a pair of wings and to go on from there to spend his career in o big Navy |et above the seas. MICHAEL WILLIAM SKAHAN Mike came to Navy from Tappan Zee High School near his hometown of Blauvelf, New York. His athletic abilities made him a welcome addition to company sports teams, where he participated in volleyball, basketball, and softboll. While serving as a squad leader for the new class of 72, his high school track experience helped to earn him the title of Fleet- footed Mr. Skohan. ' Study hour would most often find Mike in his room diligently working on some sort of super electronic gadget or writing to his one- and-only. Mikes academics were never a strong point, but he more than mode up for this with his positive attitude and sense of responsibility. These are the qualities that will also make Mike a fine Naval officer. DAVID VICTOR STODDARD Dove, a southpaw, came to us directly out of high school in Son Jose, Coliforma, and gave up the good life for one here at Navy During Youngster Cruise, he ocquired talents which led to extra com and busy Fri- day nights. Known to many as Stods, he kept his classmates informed as to which stereo setup was currently the best Academics were never his out- standing feoture, but he monoged to struggle through. Sports were his best aspect, indulging in Batt footboll and pitching for the company s fast pitch Softball team. He was known as killer ' when it came to defending his goal in fieldboll. He is also known as the first mid to keep a live horsie in his room. Dove plans to enter Navy Air upon graduation. JAMES WILLIAM SUHR Arriving from Ferndale, Washington, Jim started o new tradition at Novy - if they won ' t let you quit Plebe summer, show em and get the Detail 2 c Sum- mer. He was, of course, the only Plebe that the upper- clossmen hod to address as Sir. Jim s musical tal- ents led him to the D B and the Marching 90. After one of their performances in Pittsburg, he hod o blind dote - the wedding is planned for June. Youngster Cruise found Jim sleeping (?) on on unnamed West Coost beach. Jim is always ready for some fun. Be- sides being Navy s best LaCrosse manager, Jim is a member in good standing of the local Wardroom team. Jim ' s aiming for Pensacolo after June, 1970 - They ' ll be getting a good officer Four Hundred Twenty-seven SAMUEL RYAN SWAH Ryan is an Air Force " brat " and proud of the service tradition. He has managed to take the full strength of a major in Aerospace Engineering in his stride and plans to moke Novy Air his career. Ryan hails from Nashville, but far from being the country bumpkin, he has never had trouble making the Deans List. He finds time to work on the v ater-bosed glider being built by the A.I.A.A., and is a full time manager for the rifle team. Any night of the v eek, you can find him in his room giving individuol lessons on what ev- eryone else slept through during the week. Its well known where his interests lie, and we expect the best from him as an aviator os well as a Naval Officer. DAVID FRANCIS WALSH " Animal " migrated from Belmont, California, where he was a part time student. The coil of the rolling sea, however, proved too great and Dave soon found him- self completely tied up in the rigors of that first year. His motivation for Naval Academy life suffered a near miscarriage during the later stages of Plebe summer though. Among the many awards received at the Academy, Animal was the coveted winner of the " Consumption " title, as his effort was the crowning event in the Christmas tree of life. Dove was intro- duced early to the sport of skiing downhill, and this he soon found was on insurmountable help in aca- demics. Dove often times encountered many minor difficulties, but he was able to sustain himself in times of stress with this, his favorite saying, " One an- imal is too few, but two animals is a zoo " BRYAN DOUGLAS WIGGINS, JR. Bryan come to the Naval Acodemy from sunny Cali- fornia, where he excelled in athletics as well as aca- demics, lettering in football, basketball, and baseball. He soon directed his efforts, and found his place on many Brigode Chompionship Basketball Teams. As the years passed, individual workouts soon took precedence over organized athletics. Always a hard worker in whatever he tried, " Wigs " undoubtedly mode a fine impression on First Class Cruise. Always studying diligently, he still managed to en|oy the bet- ter side of Academy life. His desire for success and undying sense of humor should moke him a more than welcome addition to the field of Aviation. I CARL STANLEY WELLS Carl came to the Nova! Academy with a year of col- lege already behind him. It was this year of school that enabled him to validate nine semesters of Plebe and youngster courses. This got him off to a good stort toward the Physics Ma|or he decided to pursue. Even though the Bull Department always gave him a hard time, Carl managed to squeak out a 3.0 each semester. During his stay at the Academy, he has been known to exploit his entrepreneur ability, and has hod a fmnchise on the Bancroft Hall Hot Dog business for two years. Upon graduation, he hopes to be a participant of the immediate masters program in the field of Physics. Four Hundred Twenty-eight i ru 1 11 W t W idiool SECOND CLASS LEFT TO RIGHT FROM BACK ROW: B.

' But, setting his goals toward the heavens, Guy strove to be the best and eventually attained this ob|ective. In his first year, he managed to reach those celestial bodies that are so distant and so inconceivable for most mids . . . aca- demic stars! And, he hos managed to keep them pinned to his service dress ever since. But, he does not go unnoticed by his classmates. For this he has constantly been awarded the opportunity to further his professional education by being selected as that midshipman in chorge of o Mid-term or finols watch. Such on opportunity! Following graduation, Guy plans to follow the Burke program and go nuclear subs. As in everything he has done in the post, Guy is o sure bet to excel in this endeavor. A BZ to a busy young man. DOUGLAS ALLEN BATEMAN Four years at the Naval Academy proved to be an en- lightenment period in Doug ' s educotion, during which time he wos under constant pressure to broaden " his interests. Emerging from Setauket, New York, Doug brought with him o keen mind and a sense of adven- ture which led him into many varied areas of interest. It was his world travel experience, no doubt, which sparked on eager affinity to stewardesses. In an age of long hair, he did his best to keep everyone trim. Although he worked endlessly to excel acodemicolly, Doug ' s first love hos always been athletics. He kept in shape all year long on the vorsity baseball and 1 50 lb. football teams, and the Scuba Club. In pursuit of a career in oceonogrophy, Doug hopes to |oin the Navy Frogmen upon graduation. GARY W. BLAIR Gary came to the Acodemy from Auburn University where he was o Theto Chi and o ROTC. He overcame these shortcomings, however, and quickly became one of the top men in the company. He was an out- standing athlete, participating in intramural boxing, lacrosse, football, and softboll until a knee in|ury youngster year slowed him down A devoted scuba diver. Gory gave up a month of his leave, and braved the hazards of Key West, Florida, and Seal-Team in- structors to attend the Navy Underwater Swimmers ' School, and become one of the few midshipmen to qualify as Navy Diving Officers. Never on o really friendly basis with the Academic Department, Gary tried several minors before settling on Oceonogrophy, his current love. After groduation. Gory hopes to put the dull, commonplace life behind him and serve with the Navy Seal Teoms. JOSEPH JOHN COTE, JR. Boston s Baby brought with him a con of boked beans and few other tricks which seemed to please many Crobtown girls. When not pursuing academic excel- lence in the Weapons Department, Joe could be found pounding his little red organ in the Jozz Band room, or trying to set o new record in the pool. Joe ' s room was often the center of those sessions, " discussing such worldly ond important topics os summer beords, motorcycles, sport cors, and of course, the opposite sex. Finonciolly minded, Joe always thought of new coin-making schemes, often resulting in much needed profits. We hope that Joe will keep his wit, good humor, and squash racket when he departs the hal- lowed halls of Mother Bancroft for points beyond. Four Hurtdred Thirty-one RAYMOND VINCENT DIGIACOMO Surviving a hectic youth as one of the original dead end kids " from Broolclyn, New York, Roy felt the Boat School was the only place that still offered him a challenge. " Giacs, " as he is known to us, came straight from St. Francis ' Prep and Broadway for a little R and R before turning in his blues for o little aviator ' s green. The Academy ' s own answer to the Mafia, Roy could always be found hitting the books; but not using his brains as much as the brawn he de- veloped in his constant trips to the weight room. A fine guitarist, Giacs, left his personal style ringing in our ears at many of Mrs. Ms informols. Though not all the strings he pulled were on his guitar, Roy wos never in want of companionship. Owing to his dedica- tion and the loyalty to his countless friends, Roy will certainly succeed in attaining his wings. V Tf PHILIP VINCENT DONOHUE, JR. Phil has had o sincere desire to become on officer for nearly three weeks now, and it has been noted by many that his motivation will lead him to the August position of CNO. Good luck, Phil! He claims Massachu- setts OS his homeland, and his parents substantiate his claim, but at this writing, there has been no com- ment from the Governor. The son of a Naval Officer, he IS on above average student. He possesses the con- scienciousness and the desire to succeed that are essential to the development of a career officer. Phil plans to select a career in the surface Navy, where he dreams of becoming the Navy ' s answer to Chesty Puller. Upon considering his extracurricular interests, YP ' s and marching, one con appreciate the compari- son. JOHN MORRIS ECKERT John came to the Naval Academy after spending two years in the fleet, including one at the Naval School in Bainbridge, Maryland. He has always token an active interest in the intramural sports program; his special- ty being lacrosse. John is an avid scuba diver, and one of the select few who gave up a month of summer leave to obtain a Novy diver qualification through the U.S. Naval Underwater Swimmers School in Key West, Florida. John never had trouble with acodemics while at the Academy, and could always be counted on to lend helping hand, especially if the problem con- cerned mathematics, his minor. After graduation, John plans to go to Pensocolo, Florida, where he ' ll begin what is certain to be a successful career in Naval Aviation. EDWARD ANTHONY GABARRA, JR. Known to the world os Gabby, " Ed came to Canoe U. after having spent a. year at the University of Rhode Island, living the life of Riley. The life changed, but it did not matter much to him, because he was one of select few who is Marine green through and through. Whenever there was a pro question to be answered about the Corps, everyone knew that Gabby was the first man to come to. His friendly, outgoing character made his room one of those " let ' s-take-a-breok- ond-go-to-Gobby ' s " rooms, and he seldom minded. He was always willing to take o break, too. Though every semester began with hopes of Dean ' s list or Superintendent ' s list, if seems that he never quite mode it. But, he kept on hoping. Someday soon, we ' re going to look up and see what appears to be a Huey Cobra doing loops, and spins, and barrel rolls. More than likely, it is going to be Captain Ed Gobarro (USMC), making his dream come true. Four Hundred Thirty-two ' - . ' ' I ' ■ " MELVIN KAAHANUI In the summer of 66, Mel (otherwise knowti as the Great Kahuna) traded In his surfboard for a slide rule and a few books and left Hawaii behind to begin four years at Navy. Already, Mel has become a legend in his own time, while on liberty, he left behind many daring exploits for others to attempt to surposs. Those who were with him during Spotrcmid con easi- ly attest to this fact. To those of us who are Protes- tants, Mel will always be remembered as the legend of " sleepy-hollow. " Exhibiting great prowess in aca- demics as well as athletics, Mel has worked towards minors in applied mathematics and oceanography. With these interests, plus his desire to go surface line, Mel surely hos a very promising career oheod of him. JOHN LANGDON, II John, the elite half of the Dynamic Duo, is called " Yang " by all, a name from his youthful days in Hun- tington, Pennsylvania. Let it be said that Yang never let the academy take any fun out of life. On many a weekend he would frequent the University of Mary- land and local campuses. The afternoons found John either in heated competition on company athletic teams, or hard at work on his favorite hobby, earning spare cash which he often needed. At his hobby, ev- eryone will agree that Yang does it better! " Nothing was said about academics, but then Yang never said much about them either. His keen sense of duty and dedication are qualities possessed by all great nova! officers. John is well on his way. WALTER RICHARD LOHRMANN Dick began his adventurous life in Meriden, Connecti- cut, and blessed the halls of Piatt High with his run- ning, swimming, and scheming abilities before com- ing to USNA. After a brief stay in the Reserves, Dick began his enterprising career at the Academy. Excel- ling in cross country during his Plebe year, Dick then turned to Battalion and Company sports where he proved to be very versatile. Fascinated by speed, Dick can t wait to sit behind the wheel of a Jag or in the cockpit of his own F-4. Although he has on affinity for demerits and numerous Navy good deals, Dick s good nature and strong desire to succeed as a Navy pilot hove helped him overcome obstacles. Dick has always gone along with that old adage that, They cant fry us all. " RONALD KEITH MACHTLEY From deep in the cool mining country of Pennsylva- nia, Ron is probably the finest product of Johnstown since the flood. From the day he arrived, he impressed everyone with his ability in sports, his dedication, and his sincere concern for those around him. Needless to say, these attributes mode Ron one of our leaders from the start. His determination to excell and to de- rive the most possible from himself was reflected in his play OS a starter on the 1 50 lb. football team, and his grades, which he worked up to Superintendent ' s List level. Ron was anything but totally serious, though, as anyone who bore the brunt of one of his infinite practical jokes con attest. Not above pursuit of the opposite sex, he spent many a night on " the circle, " braving inclement weather, competition, and disinterested females. Not exactly a model Midship- man, " Ron was nevertheless, an oddition of which the Navy can and will be proud for a long time. Ron could be a regular guy, or rise above the others when the situation called for a leoder, qualities that will serve him in good steod in the Novy. THOMAS GEORGE MARSHALL After touring the Novy for tfiree years, Tom was de- termined to become a midsfiipman. His spirit since tiQS carried him a long way. He has a variety of hobbies among which sleeping during free periods stands out as his favorite. Tom hos been elected Pres- ident of the USNA SCUBA Club. He is already a quali- fied Scubo Diver and Instructor. After classes, he keeps busy in the boxing ring and then, like they say, early to rise, early to bed, " usually a couple of min- utes of guitar playing in the evening will send him into a big trauma from which he does not recover until five minutes before morning meal formation. Graduation will be his first step into Naval Aviation, and, no doubt, he will be among the best. MICHAEL DALE MAY Mike, famous for an obnoxious wit, fantastic musical ability, extraordinary Little Greek prowess, and an all around easy going manner came to us from one of the brightest spots on the East Coast, Norfolk, Virgin- ia. Proctice doily with the guns, " wasn ' t exactly his bog. He much preferred practice daily with the drums. Mike was a member of the Spiffies all four years at the Academy, alternating his talents between singing, and ploying organ and drums. If a company clown award was to be given, " Mod Dog " would be a strong contender. Mike was always the star and writer of all the Christmas Plays, and he spent many hours getting his practical |okes down to perfection. Mike plans to moke a career in Navy Line, where he ' ll moke sure there is never a dull moment on the bridge. TIM scon McCUIN ■ ' T. S. " lumbereci into " Conoe U " from the steel town of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, singing " Anchors Aweigh, " not knowing that he was to be a charter member of Jones ' Shower Party. Straight from high school, Tim was quick to adjust to Academy life, and soon was counting the days till the next leave. Any Plebe that wos in Tim ' s squad soon learned the histo- ry of the Johnstown Flood and all the great football players from the steel town. A terror on the fieldball field, " T. S " still managed to relax enough to get his share of pod time. Never one to miss o Mef ' s party, or second class sit-in, Tim always had his hoiry- chested bod around a female. Tim should make a fine Navy Line officer with a girl in every port. " They can ' t fry us all. " LEWIS FRANK MclNTYRE Out of the pine scented mountains of western North Carolina, Lewis come to leave on indelible mark on USNA. Throughout his Plebe year, Lou always drew the attention of the uppercloss. He was o member of many " athletic squads " during the first year and be- came a legend in his own time. Determination be- came Lou ' s trademark and he was consistently on the Superintendent ' s List. During Youngster year, Lou be- came a mover with the girls earning the title, " the Maestro. " With a tremendous interest and knowledge in " wires, " he breezed through second Class year. As on aero ma|or, Lou will go into aviation after gradua- tion. He will hove a trem endous impact on the Navy, or at least someones coffee mess. JOHN ROBERT McNAMEE, JR. After excelling in high school in both academics and track, Jock come to Navy where he continued to stand out in academics, and greatly improved his running ability. He conveniently avoided company tables dur- ing Plebe year as a member of the cross country, in- door and outdoor track teams. Following Plebe year, he helped those three teams as a varsity member by working diligently to improve his times. While at the Academy, Jock did extremely well in all his endeav- ors, and will always be remembered for his ability to get the gouge. Upon graduation, he will carry his ex- pounding knowledge into the fleet, insuring that Rocks Facts will never die. Never at o loss for words, he will undoubtedly be successful in whatever he as- pires to do in the future. SCOTT FLETCHER NEWBERRY Those of us who were fortunate enough to meet " Nubber " during our stay at USNA know what it means to have a true friend. His friendly smile and good nature proved to be one of his greatest ossets. A football standout in his hometown of Canostota, New York, Scott continued to display his quarterbocking ability by leading the lightweight football team to mony victories. His talented toe also proved decisive in many games on both the football and soccer fields. An advocate of Navy Line, Scott ' s greotest ambition is to " drive o boot. " Having spent a summer on the DD 507 Navy should come easily to him. Another of the rowdy youngsters, Scott ogrees, " They can ' t fry us all. " Four Hundred Thirty-four JAMES HARMANSON NOHINGHAM, JR. Jim, better known as Notts, ornved at the Academy with a distinguished athletic and academic back- ground, from Atlanta, Georgio. From the very begin- ning, Jim was oggressive in all he undertook, excel- ling in academics. He will always be remembered in future years when Mets gather for his class loyalty, and progressive leadership during the youngster shirt fiasco. " It did not take Jim long to realize Geor- gia produced more than peaches, becoming aware of the girl next door, and soon after engaged. Jim was a natural midshipman, always en|oying the finer things of life, especially sleep. Jim was always dedicated in whatever he undertook and learned early to organize his time efficiently. The future seems to indicate sub- marines for him, and he has the fine qualities and characteristics necessary to become one of the finest officers in the fleet. STEVEN GREG PARKS Coming from the Quaker State, Steve was o notural for USNA. As o quiet Plebe he avoided the pitfalls of Plebe year. Always interested in sports, Steve was a football manager during his years as on underclass- man. He was also a strong advocate of weightlifting, and could olwoys be found lifting. " Steve s determi- nation gained him a reputation as a man who could get things done. Always a mon with the ladies, he become known as the man with the fastest pin in the East. Avoiding the Bull deportment at all cost, Steve minored in aero spoce. Hidden beneath his quiet voice was sarcastic humor which could put anyone in place. Upon graduation, Steve intends to go into aviation. He will excell in whatever field he goes into. four Hundred Thirty-five 1 DIEGO FRANCISCO PORRAS Diego came to the Naval Academy from Panama City, Panama. However, his knowledge was broadened by schooling in Germany and the United States, including year at Purdue University. The Northern weather of Maryland was not a favorite with Diego, and during the cold months, you could find him huddled under his two blankets, dreaming about the worm waters of his homeland. In the spring when the sun warms the area, you ore sure to find Diego either on the tennis courts perfecting his new serve, or gazing through his telephoto camera equipment, snapping candid shots of visiting lovelies. Diego ' s love of the sea, urge for adventure, and multilingual assets will be missed by the Navy, as he pursues his hopes of a commission in the Merchant Marines. ANDREW NICHOLAS PRAH Nick arrived for Plebe year after three outstanding years at one of New England ' s ivy-covered prep schools. Bound and determined to uphold the long line and reputation of Protts at the Academy, Nick took to life here as well as Rhetf did to Scarlett. The books posed no special problem to our hero, as he could always rely on his fine engineering background. No facet of Academy life was safe from Nick. He ter- rorized the lacrosse fields for three years. Late August always found him bock early banging heads for foot- ball instead of beaching it. The Academy ' s loss will be the Marines gam, as Nick will undoubtedly make his mark in the Corps as he did here. t0 ltl lijt!

After ploying Plebe boll, he de- cided to try Brigade boxing. He missed the semi-finals Youngster year, but mode them his Second Class yeor. Randy spent o great deal of time developing his mind while at the Academy, and took with him on above overoge QPR into service selection. In the tradition of iron men and wooden ships. Randy ' s future plons coll for a nice DD on the East Coast, When we think of Randy, we ' ll think of his many nicknames and his fine imitotions. PETER GARETY ROBERTS Our honey-tongued hero migrated North, as he said, to serve his country best, " but we know it was be- cause of the famous Annapolis night life. Grit, as he is known by the in " circles, did to Plebe year what the Indions did to Custer. He was one of the charter members of the Albert Einstein think tank. His fa- mous last-minute cram sessions and lost minute dar- ing cemented him even more firmly in the plaster of the Hall s wolls. Even with all this academic ferment, Grit always found time to sip a few before preparing for laborious study hour. Even the Admirol ' s ultima- tum foiled to shake our honey-tongued hero. Service selection night still holds mony surprises and Pete ' s promises to be one of the best. Green being his favor- ite color. Whatever his selection, the service will be enhanced by his presence. LARRY ROBERT SCHEAR Lorry arrived at USNA from NMMI, and the Navy uni- forms were quite a chonge from his denim locket and leons worn at high school in Hobbs, New Mexico. A confirmed bachelor, Larry was olwoys ready for o wild party with one of his over ISO blind dotes. It looks like the Marine Corps will claim Lor, ' where he hopes to go Recon, even though second doss swim turned out to be a survival swim for him. The ISO lb. football team was in Larry ' s sights for second doss year, but he hod o hard time catching the boll on crutches. A veteran of Jones Shower Party, " he will never forget. The con t fry us all!?! " JOHN RICHARD SEELEY, JR. John Richard Seeley, Jr socrificed a lot of leisure and sun to report to USNA from his home in Fort Louder- dale He was a victim of the qualified alternate sportsman, mainly due to his six-foot-six frame, and on obility to gam success in high school bosketboil. During Plebe year, John took odvantoge of many days of carry-on which he received by oiding the Plebe team in a winning season. As Youngster year came, John was able to mointoin a very respectable QPR while still keeping his body well rested throughout the day and night. Also, Seels began his three yeor varsity basketball career ploying for Coach Smolley. When service selection rolls around, John will move his quickness to grasp ideas to one of the surfoce fleet ' s DD ' s in the Pacific. LEO VIRGINIUS WILLIAMS, III A lover of lodies and good times, Leo left Norfolk, Virginia, and oil that is in it to pursue o career in the Novo! Service. Adapting to the stiff requirements of Plebe Year proved no reol problem to Leo, who made it through with flying colors and regimental stripes. The Academic Department, however, was not as im- pressed with his fancy footwork, and managed to dis- rupt Leo s Sea of Tranquility with o wee bit of turbu- lence. During second class year, Leo introduced o new bond. The J. G. ' s, of which he wos o member, ond to few in the compony a few new dances like the Pop- corn, (step bock on the upstroke!). Upon graduation, Leo hopes to trade in his Blues for a better looking set of Greens and the front seat of o Navy desk for the bock seat of a Phontom.

Four Hundred Thirty-nine DAVID JOHN ARMSTRONG Dave, or Army " as he was known to his friends, came to USNA from Cresson, Pennsylvania. Before en- tenng the Naval Academy, he attended Columbian Prep School in Washington D. C. and was on active member of the footboll team there. After surviving Plebe summer, he played on the Plebe football team as flanker bock in hopes of making the big blue as on uppercloss. His talents were soon diverted to the track team as a long-iumper. You will find Dove studying vigorously every night, due to minor aca- demic problems. But, if there is a lough or a good time around. Army will be there, too. With his initia- tive and good personality, he is sure to moke it as on aviator after graduation. LARRY CLIFFORD BAUCOM Being a Navy |unior, but having never seen the Naval Academy, Lorry entered the Academy with mixed emotions. Straight from Eau Claire High School in Co- lumbia, South Carolina, Lorry encountered no trouble with LJSNA academics, and has seen his name on the Superintendent ' s and Dean ' s Lists several semesters. Lorry chose the varsity sailing team as his main ath- letic endeavor and devotes two seasons a year to the team. His efforts hove been well rewarded by his re- ceipt of the treasured Navy " N. " During the winter months of each year while the Chesapeake was too rough to soil, Larry could be found demonstrating his prowess on the company lightweight football team. After graduation. Lorry hopes to draw his flight suit and embark upon a coreer in Naval Aviation. AARON JOSEPH BEATTIE, III Trip hails from Bay City, Michigan. A celebrity in his senior year, he held down the class presidency and captaincy of the swimming team fitting right into boat school, where his enthusiasm kept him on top of the situation. P. T. offered no trouble, and he found himself on the Dean ' s List more than once. He broad- ened his horizons to include the finer aspects of col- lege life, yet won the instant friendship and respect of those around him. Trip pursued a career in the Nucle- ar Navy by hard work in his Physics curriculum, yet never let ocodemics restrict his en|oyment of liberty. Sunday afternoon would often find him cruising through the countryside in his Corvette, and he never missed on opportunity to go home. Graduation will find Trip unchanged; the same affable chorocter, boundless energy, and the some girl, a trio that will take him wherever he wants to go. MARK OSTRUM FLAHERTY Slow MO came to the Naval Academy straight from high school and quickly formed his determination to succeed. He showed moderate interest in school and in sports, and a fanatic interest in deep sleep. Every sport he has played at the Academy has shown his tremendous drive to win. Never one to stay quiet in any argument, he alwoys has an opinion changeable without regard to logic. On leave, he could usually be found near a wine bottle, listening to music, and at least for a while . . . standing. His interests vary, but he seems to have o perception of more than he lets on. One thing we all know is that Mark really wonts to moke the Navy o career, and the service will find him doing his |ob for many years to come. Four Hundred Forty ■ VI. -r ¥ ' i Hiiii FRANK SAULSBURY CARTER, III Nick represents the third generation of the Carter family to graduate from the Academy. Living most of his hfe on the Eastern Beeches, Nick became profi- cient in soiling and received varsity awards for his participation and stern competition. He was usually seen drifting around with the companionship of some pretty girl. Being determined to make good his goal, Nick attended Columbian Prep School, and since then, never hod to sweat much for grades. Although he gave in quite regularly to the blue monster, there was seldom a party or social event that took place with- out his presence. Excelling in Naval Science, Nick plans career in the surface division of the Navy. His love for the sea ond the desire to excel should provide the Navy with one of its outstanding officers. VAUGHN WAYNE DUFF After graduating solutatonan from Appoiochio High School in southwest Virginia, Vaughn spent a year en|oying soft fraternity life and learning the finer points of a bottle at the University of Virginia in Char- lottesville, courtesy of a DuPont Scholarship. Becom- ing interested in the Navy through NROTC, the Duff- er " decided that he would try his luck at Conoe U. Academy routine agreed with him from the begin- ning, as he has almost been on first name basis with the Dean and Superintendent, while obtoining a man- agement ma|or and o moth minor. When he wos not hitting the books, or studying them, his time was oc- cupied by Battalion tennis ond squash, and TRIDENT MAGAZINE, of which he was editor-in-chief his first class year He hos wings on his mind, along with his girl, Suzy, ond will most likely head toward a June Week wedding ond Pensocolo. A hard wor1 er with plenty of push, the Navy is getting one of the best. DAVID RALPH FRIEDEN Dave come to USNA as one of five members of the class of 1970 who graduated from JEB Stuart High in Falls Church, Virginia. As a Navy Junior, " he has a deeply rooted enthusiasm for the Navol Service and a strong inclination toward Navy Line. " Wemp " spent afternoons of Plebe year with the Skipjack sailing team, and as a Youngster, graduated to the Luders Yawls. His experience included helping to crew the Resolute in the 100 mile Skippers Race on Chesa- peake Boy. Academically, Dove leaned toward or was supported by Meteorology ond Oceanography. Due to his interest in these areas, he became the unofficial company weatherman and planned to do independent research in hurricane forecasting First Class year. Fall of 1970 will find him at sea aboard one of the de- stroyers of the Second Fleet GEORGE VICTOR GALDORISI Gols come to the banks of the Severn from Brook- lyn, New York, where he spent his innocent years. During Plebe year, he split his sports time between tennis and squash, but hos since specialized in tennis. Every afternoon, he may be found on either the in- door or outdoor courts. His continued efforts to im- prove have gamed him a starting berth on the tennis team in each of his four years here. Although aca- demics were not his first love, George was able to maintain a Superintendent s List overage while pur- suring minors in moth and economics. Giving frank and sincere opinions not dictoted by considerations of popularity was characteristic of Gols ' s " straightfor- ward personality. This honest and forthright attitude will serve him well in whatever branch of the service he chooses. CHARLES RYAN HICKMAN Charlie hails from the pace-setter of the south, Atlan- ta, Georgia. The Georgia peach soon found Navy the motivation he needed after spending four fun years in high school. What he lacked in ability, he compensat- ed for in work. Charlie found the intramural program much to his liking, excelling in compony football and squash. Fleet and ogile, he thrived on sinusoidal runs, baffling his opponents. After singling out Foreign Af- fairs as the ob|ect of his attention, Charlie received no grade lower than o B " in any of his bull courses. Charlies specific personality traits include well- rounded tastes in music, o thrifty outlook on life, and the ability to moke friends easily. Sometimes a little on the shy side in meeting girls, the Peach preferred to start slow and finish fast. It looks like Pensocolo will be gifted with Chorlie and his golden vette, but whatever he does, it will be done with his standard 100% effort. Four Hundred Forty-one GREGORY WARD HINCHLIFFE Greg came to Navy from Pittsburgh ond soon ac- quired the nickname of " Buzz, " by which he has been known since Plebe summer. Never known as a follow- er, he has always shown his keen individualism while residing in Bancroft. Although an Aero ma|or, few ever saw him study. In fact, many think his only rea- son for taking a research project was to obtain a strobe light. Athletically, he rowed crew and parti- cipated in many intramurals. His many and unique interests included collecting psychedelic curios, and expressing his opinions in many art forms, some be- coming very popular. The skies around Pensocola will certainly be brightened by his personality and his abi- lity. JIMMY DWAYNE JAMES Straight from the hills of Boise, Idaho, and the halls of Borah High, Jim entered the Naval Academy with much enthusiasm and a desire to do his best. During those first few weeks of Plebe summer, Jim had no trouble in demonstrating his leadership abilities. The first academic year was all he needed to decide that the science department was not for him, but his ex- cellent ability to write served him well when doing case studies for the management department. In ath- letics, Jim gave much support to the company and battalion intramurals. His abilities were welcomed by the company soccer and lightweight football teams and the battalion lacrosse team. Jim plans to make Pensocola his first duty assignment, where he is sure to do well in Naval Aviation. DAVID JOHN KAPLA Deciding a four year so|Ourn at USNA was the quick- est way to seat in on F-4, " Boot-La, " come to the Academy from Cleveland, Ohio. Having lettered for two years in high school, Dave was a natural for the intramural football teams, where his winning spirit and natural buck proved an invaluable asset. Dave was quick to realize the value of study hour and could usually be found using this quiet time to its best ad- vantage - in the pod. Nevertheless, no course or exam in his Literature Minor could overcome his de- sire to graduate and learn what the Navy is really like. " Well liked by everyone and with almost no boil- ing point, " The Pole " is sure to en|oy a rewarding ca- reer - whether in Aviotion or as DASH Officer on his destroyer. Four Hundred Forly-fwo V ' . K . % ' t ' " % ' W JEB BERNARD KINGSEED Coming from a small form in Pique, Ofiio, and known fo all fiis friends as seed, ' Jeb hod an innote talent for two important aspects of Naval Academy life - sports ond academics. Although his speed mode him o standout on the company lightweight football team, he could never quite master the techniques of swim- ming. Mony winter afternoons found him practicing in the Natatorium, and the evenings often dragged on into the wee hours of morning as he prepared for that big test " the next day. Mechanical Engineering wosnt the easiest field to ma|or in, but Jebs desire to go to Nuclear Power School after graduation over- came all obstocles. This perseverance along with his amiable personality guarantee a successful career in the Navy and a happy home for his future bride. GEORGE NEIL MIDKIFF Neil come to the Academy from Wellesley, Massachu- setts, and ever since, he hos been calling the sunny shores of the Severn home. He adjusted to the mili- tary scene with no trouble, but many comments, and Kiff could always be depended on to have an opinion on anything. Consistent with his interest in the Navy, he chose Oceanography for his minor. Unfortunately, academics gave him more trouble than he gave them, and while he never hod to fear the green table, it wos a constant struggle to keep his class standing from looking like a zip code. In sports, Snake " was ever valuable to intramural teams as well as making oc- casional leaps at glory with varsity crew ond football. Navy line should benefit from this persevering and dedicated individuol. TERRY LAURITZEN MARTIN Known affectionately to all as Gomer, " Terry come to Navy from Milton-Freewoter, Oregon, with high hopes and great expectations. An outstanding all- around high school athlete, Terry ' s never -say-die ' attitude was witnessed by many on the gridiron with the ISO ' s. Academics sow Terry standing high in the class. While never having a real affinity for the " num- bers " courses, he excelled in his ma|or, which was Foreign Affairs. Throughout his four years here, there were many who benefited from his good example and good times, especiolly a certain airline stew- ordess from home. Outstanding ability ond devotion, that mode him a three-striper l C year, will carry Terry on in his Naval career as one who all will be proud to serve under. His hopes for the future - the red and gold of o 2nd Lieutenant in the Marine Corps, and the immediate Masters Program. Best of luck to great guy. BOYD scon McCORD Rip led a typicolly Navy Blue and Gold life as a Navy Junior before coming to Annapolis via a year at the University of South Carolina. An outstanding swimmer and basketball player in high school, he blessed the intramural b-boll, swimming, and water polo teams with his talents. Scott quickly gained the respect of his classmates, and always stood high when leadership and aptitude were the topic. Choos- ing Applied Science as his field gave the Twig ' many tense evenings, but his study paid off. It will be a while before anyone forgets the guy who always hod a ride to D. C. A future Grunt, ' Rip s devotion to excellence hos served and will serve as a fine ex- ample. JORGE RAFAEL RAMIREZ The bouncing bear of San Juan, " entered the Naval Academy well versed in military discipline after sever- al years of ROTC at the University of Puerto Rico. To the women of the United States, Cucho " gave his irrepressible style, wit, charm, and Latin romontic countenance. In return, the grateful country gave the " man " the longest head cold ever recorded. In re- taliation, Jorge turned to sports where some of his accomplishments ore running on the bottom of the Instruction Pool, while everyone else was swimming, and being the only linemon of pure Spanish descent plgying on the lightweight football teom. As for the future, it seems to be a contest between Navy Air - first love and choice, the Line - well, if you re blind you have to do something, " and the pad - just rest- ing my eyes ond thinking about it. ' But, whatever the |obs challenges ore, they will be met heod on, and the result will be good; it ' s just the kind of person he HENRY VERNON SANDERS Coming to USNA from the horse and whiskey capital of America, Louisville, Kentucky, Hal spent o year at Vanderbilt University in the NROTC before reaching the Severn shore After a rocky Plebe yeor, he settled down enough to moke Superintendents List first se- mester of Second Class year and followed his keen interest in foreign offoirs with a minor in the field. Other preoccupotions include cors ond football, with body building also taking many an afternoon, and he rounded out his octivities with Antiphonol Choir, the Foreign Relations Club, and the YP Squadron. Turned away from Navy Air by imperfect eyes. Hoi plans to go line come graduation, and his dedicated attitude ond willingness to give it all he ' s got should stand him in good stead for the future. Four Hundred Forty-three BRADLEY THOMAS WHITE Brad came to the Academy after spending a year at the University of Illinois, and due to his NROTC expe- rience at Illinois, was well prepared to face the rigors of Academy life. After spending a year as o member of the Plebe Fencing Team, Brad became a frequent visitor of the weight room, and although never quite making the Superintendents List, academics never posed any problem for Chicago ' s Man-on-the-move. His personality gamed him numerous friendships, but the military came first and foremost in his book. Be- cause of this, he managed to keep the stripes he worked for during those first three years. Navy Air will soon be able to claim him as one of its young aspirants, although his time will be divided between flying and his future bride. HAROLD BOYEnE WALLACE Horold (Harry " ) made his impression on us early in Plebe summer with his pronounced Kenly, North Caro- lina, accent. Alas, it has not totally withstood the test of time at USNA, but his inherent good-nature has, and still does moke him a favorite among his class- mates. Harry has kept busy with the Public Relations Club, Radio Club, battalion handboll, company volley- ball, and lightweight football, but, as often as possi- ble, commutes to North Carolina for a meeting with at least one nice little girl bock home. " In academ- ics, he found himself losing most engagements with the USNA bull department, but Go see Horry, ' was the most heard phrase when it came to wires. Harry ' s ability and good-nature will undoubtedly make him a fine officer as he |oins the P-3 side of Naval Aviation. Four Hundred Forty-four ' 1 - ' I ' V 1 V tt vr ' -v " -w v ' ' £M Tl -n- - - -.

MICHAEL RICHARD KAIN From the first day of Plebe Summer, it was obvious that Mike wouldn ' t make it. Unphosed by the strangeness of Plebe year, Mick dug in, set his goals, and got dumped upon unmercifully. A resilient lad, Mike has bounced bock to make life a little happier for everyone around him at the Academy. Dividing his time between studies, intramural, and girls, Mike ' s plans have been responsible for more than one week- end party.

At night he worked trying to comprehend the abstruse theories of his physics minor. Youngster year revealed the true meaning of the U.S.N.A.R. as Lew spent many week- ends serving with distinction as the outstanding member of the sixth battalion squad. Chorlie gave up precious hours of sleep in the mornings, later to be- come a scuba instructor, and even fore himself from his true " love ' s arms to dive m the beautiful woters of the Florida Keys. Charlie ' s unique sense of humor and cheerful disposition will be great assets to him as Navy pilot. STEPHEN LAURANCE MADEY, JR.

Never one to let academics interfere with his leisure, he exhib- ited an uncanny woy with the fair sex, and a capacity to always hove fun anywhere. Determination and ef- fort proved Steve to be on aggressive competitor, though he could always be counted on for a friendly smile or |oke. With his many outstanding qualities ond great leadership potential, Steve is certain to have a most promising career with the Navy. DENNIS MAniSON Denny |oined the ranks of USNA straight from the arms of Boinbridge Prep, and exhibited his academic potential with o B ' overage for three semesters. As he became odiusted to the influences of NAVY, his dormont talents os o real sleeper " aided his dort- throwing ability and abetted his receding hairline. Denny ' s collateral duties included Grunt keeper, ciga- rette dispenser, and Company librarian. During his sophomore yeor, his academic prowess was supple- mented by outstonding performonce on the athletic field in the area of lacrosse. Due to preseason activi- ties, Mott was forced to put his athletic tolents on " ice.

MOORE Butch come to our four-year institution directly from the Connecticut University of Naval Technology where he found the studies quite hoiry. The name Butch was the first thing to go during the transformation from civilian life to military life. He adapted well and soon was answering to the coll of " The Village Idiot, " which was later shortened to idiot. He went out for BB Plebe year, but couldn ' t quite hack it. The remain- ing three years the company was stuck with Ed, but managed to moke the best of it by ignoring him. All seriousness aside, Ed is one of the easiest going per- sons you would ever wont to meet, and whatever his future plans are, they ore bound to be a success. JOHN STEPHEN OLSON Coming from the wild and wooly midwestern town of OIney, Illinois, Jack has always been high in grades, enthusiasm, and pad time in the afternoon. Known as the world ' s longest and hardest studier, which his grades strongly reflect, Ollie has o quiet, yet tena- cious reserve that enables him to excel in everything he does. Evenings usually find Jack ' s room filled with throngs of people getting the " gouge. " Ollie, not being content to just sit around ond watch, was ac- tive in freshman indoctrination as well as company sports, including that great bone crushing sport, field- ball.

Youngster year, Al set records for the longest time in the pad. His room was permanently blacked out, becoming known as the ' cave " Al was never one to study much. Naval Science was his favorite Academic area. His nine days at seo on Youngster Cruise enabled him to flunk the cruise test. During second class summer, he managed to ram the sea wall with his YP. Appendicitis, Mono- nucleosis, and a broken ankle failed to stop Al from running Navy track. On the weekends, Al could be found dragging his O.A.O. It ' ll be sure that with his winning personality and outstanding leadership quali- ties, he will distinguish himself in whatever field he chooses. FRANK CHARLES PEACOCK, JR.

His quick mind has allowed The Pod Monster to continually capture his activities while not marring his QPR. As a moth ma|or, he will continue to explore the abstractions and theoretical basis of Navy and other interesting " areas. Although a determined participant in athletics, Cock " as he is better known, has found that determination is not the only require- ment to be met in the nofotorium.

Breez- ing through Plebe summer and Plebe yeor, Phi) took special interest in Youngster cruise, after which he readily decided that Navy Air was the only way to go. Known throughout the company os on athlete, Phil can often be seen displaying great blocking and tack- ling prowess as the company ' s soccer goalie. He is amiably referred to as " clothesline " by opposing teams. As a math major, it is rumored that Phil can integrate anything he con spell, which isn ' t much. All sincerity aside, we are all sure that the old " Pole- cat ' s " determination and personality will insure his success in his present goal, Navy Air and devil pups. RICHARD HERBERT POLLOCK A hometown product of rural New York City, Rich has been active in a variety of sports, clubs, and academic endeavors while at USNA. Being a firm believer in the importance of marching in his military training, spring and fall parades would find Pol marching out to a yawl to participate in the traditional sport of soiling. When not involved in the exciting routine of everyday life, he can always be found studying his most recent thermo assignment oslumber in the clutches of a most obliging rack. A recent inductee into the big fish club, " Pol possesses a penchant for wheel standing machines, although urged by his more conservative friends to purchase a VW. Nuclear Power School and the Submarine Service seem to be integral ports of Rich ' s future, and will certainly bring him much success.

Though Sam is a basically easy-going fellow, he is olso an aggressive othlete. Sam, a competitor by nature, is well liked by all who know him. If he can physically fit in an airplane, he ' ll be a prominent figure in Peri- socolo after graduation. His spirit and sincerity will always be assets to himself and the Navy. Four Hundred Fifty-one CHARLES EDWARD RINGER, JR. Deported from liberal, Konsos, " Rings " set out to es- tablish himself OS a fun-loving, risk-taking, member of 70. His interests being sleep, wasting time, playing the guitar, sports, and academics - in that order - he developed his favorite pastime after meeting The Girl on a very reluctant blind dote. Distinguishing himself in lightweight Crew, soiling, intramural foot- ball, and giving " trims, " Chuck happily remembers all the nights the O.O.D. failed to notice the " striped pole " outside his room. He possibly holds a record by getting kicked out of his youngster math class one hour before Christmas leave. Whether he chooses Naval Aviation or surface line. Chuck ' s friendly smile will win him many friends. As June 1970 approaches, the Novy can look forward to gaming one of its finest and most outstanding officers. WILLIAM R. SCHMIDT Bill brought a unique ond independent personality to USNA from his fathers cattle ranch in Minnesota. He writes poetry, gets on the Dean ' s and Superintend- ent ' s Lists, battles the Executive Department, and makes a lot of friends in the process. He was o varsity sharkfighter from the start, and his ability in sailing earned him a berth on an ocean race and a yawl com- mand. You con always depend on Bill to find the party, girls, and the spirits. He has a colossal ability to sleep and a brood range of interests. Due to o mo|or disaster with the Math Department, he is an applied science minor. Not known for a great amount of beads. Bill will be a carefree but reliable asset to whatever branch of the Naval service he chooses.

He never missed a free period in the pad or any of the intellectual discussions, which he always dominated. Upon leaving the Academy, Gary will have no problems regardless of where he goes. His keen wit and outstonding personality can ' t help but get him everything he desires out of life, which begins with the cute little girl he is rarely seen without. Graduotion will find Gory and Donna leaving on their honeymoon into o life of happiness and success. DAVID KENNETH SORENSEN Dave, who colls the thriving metropolis of Warren, Pennsylvania, his home, come to Navy U looking for a future. Dave has worried himself an extra few years worth of receding hairline during those trying days before and after final exams. But, he always mode the final push and beat Navy. Numbered among his finest assets is Dave s athletic prowess. He was an excellent Plebe wrestler, and showed great promise OS a youngster on the varsity squad. But, academics were a deciding factor second class year when Dove turned to company sports. None of us will ever forget Dave ' s Quarantined Room " Plebe summer, or the O.OD. ' s visit to his war-torn room third class year. Dove IS sure to find success in his future, because of his endless determination. JOHN PARKS TAZEWELL, JR. John reported to our beloved University of Naval Technology after touring the East Coast. John breezed through the first grade in Norfolk, but New Jersey ' s second was too much for him, and he was forced to turn back. This single Blemish was put right when the family returned our hero to Norfolk ' s school system. J. P. started to follow his father ' s surface career while at Norfolk ' s Granby High, and here ot the Nov Acad, John has fostered his dream through his naval archi- tecture minor and his position on the varsity sailing team. John ' s out-of-compony interests and his exem- plary study habits earned him such nick-nomes as Drift and The Hermit. On the strength of the rumor that the Red Cross refused J. P.

Chuck brought with him to the Academy an avid interest in athletics which he carried on throughout his four years here. A true competitor, he could be found nearly every afternoon participating in some compatiy sport. When he was not on the athlet- ic field. Chuck could be found studying or putting m some hours for NAFAC. Although he was not an ex- ceptional student, he managed to attain Superinfend- ents List status more than once during his stay at the Academy. Well liked by all who knew him. Chuck ' s good natured personality will make him on admired individual and respected Naval officer. DANIEL FRANCIS AKERSON Coming to USNA from Mankato High School m Minne- sota, Dan mode o quick change from high school playboy to o leader in the ranks of Annapolis. From his high school days as cross country and baseball star, he brought with him his modesty and desire to win which have served him well in varsity boxing and company mtramurals. Dan, noted for his even temper end mild manners, was never-the-less notorious for the woy in which he handled Plebes - and women. He was always a serious student, and he took great pride in the Academy. I am sure that Don ' s profes- sional attitude, conscientiousness, and competitive spirit will be on asset to him in the fleet. JAMES LEON DAILY, II Blue and Gold all the way, Jim come to the Academy from Colorado ' s Grand Junction High School, where he established himself as a fine wrestler. While Plebe year seemed to tangle him up, he soon established himself academically and maintained a very respecta- ble QPR throughout; attaining Superintendent ' s List recognition frequently. When he didn ' t have his nose to the grindstone, he could usually be found weight- lifling, scuba diving, ploying the twelve string, or warning of the coming of the great ski borel Jim will best be remembered for his somewhat unorthodox engagement in which he was reunited, pinned and engaged to his childhood sweetheart within three days. This career minded Navy Junior will undoubted- ly put his aptitude for the service to great use in the surface fleet, and will most assuredly be a great suc- cess. DAVID LEE DAVIS Dove arrived at the Academy from the bustling me- tropolis of Cranesville, Pennsylvania. Due to his excel- lent preparation, everything started out easy for D. L. and got easier. His highest marks were earned first semester Plebe year. After that, the moke hod to wake him to change the sheets. A member of the Glee Club, he sacrificed many hours of hard work in the for corners of the country, spending more weekends away from Bancroft Hall thon in it. Dove was on avid company athlete, always on the varsity in darts, crib- boge, and other games for the alert and nimble. His romantic adventures were often the focal point of discussion, some day the red light will turn green. After graduation. Dove plans to earn his wings at Pensocolo. Always friendly, always able. Dove will moke a great contribution to Navy Air.

Hall come to the Academy as a very enthusiastic Plebe, and quickly gamed friendship and respect from all his classmates. Never one to accept his role as a lesser. Hall constont- ly challenged the system, but as fate would have it, the system constantly challenged him, usually at extra duty or restriction musters. While here at the Hallowed Halls of USNA, holl played Plebe football, swimming, and lacrosse. He also gamed fame as a varsity football player. Besides sports. Hall excelled in the academic world (to hear him tell it), but always seemed to blow the finals, he was never to be found on Superintendent ' s or Dean ' s Lists. He was, however, frequently found around Clyde ' s " or Stanley ' s " in Georgetown. Hall ' s amiability and easy-going manner will surely guarantee him success in the future, PAUL MERRILL HURD Paul came to the bonks of the Severn from General Brown High School in Brownville, New York. He dis- tinguished himself there in the fields of athletic and extrocurriculars as a member of the National Honor Society and senior closs president. Coming to the Academy never really cramped his style, he |Oined the ranks of the Block N " society during Plebe summer with little trip to D. C. on Porent ' s Weekend. Al- though not a member of the Superintendent ' s List, he excelled in his studies considering his duties as the company entrepreneur. A photography bug, Hurdsie was real expert at getting good shots. An avid com- pany athlete, he excelled in volleyball, basketball, and Softball. On weekends, he could usually be found somewhere along Route 50 nursing his green machine to D. C. A friend to all, his worm, outgoing personality and inexhaustible sense of humor will insure Paul of soaring to great heights in the field of Navy Air.

Strongly devoted to watching the tube. Brad still worked hard at defeating the acodem- ic department with his respectable QPR. Free time could find him with a cribbage boord, tossing darts, taking port in any of the other passing fads, or |usf putting in pad time. Looking forward to graduation and to being the only company member to marry his high school sweetheart, Brad ' s gruff, but ' friendly per- sonality will lead him to success at Pensacola, where he will don the wings of gold. DANIEL RALPH KESTLY Dan calls Milwaukee, Wisconsin home; although, his many and varied interests left him little time to spend in the beer-belly of the nation. " He indulged in ony- thing from scuba diving to skiing. His only dislike seemed to be academics, in which he showed very lit- tle interest; although his QPR surely doesn ' t reflect this. The ' Scuba-Nui, " as he was known by his friends ond classmates, was alwoys on asset to company and battalion sports. His greatest ochievement was being recognized as company pad rot " ; during many an afternoon, evening, or free period, Don could be found diligently guarding his blue trampoline. A staunch advocate of Naval Aviation and bachelor- hood, Don will with his worm personality and dedica- tion, en|oy success in whatever he pursues. KENNETH LEE KEYMER Ken came to Navy straight from high school in Berea, Ohio, where he excelled in athletics and academics. A French ma|or, Keyms, ' maintained a respectable QPR, and still gave his rack a good workout. Often a puzzle to his classmates was the identity of his true love; one of his many girls or his guitar. A born enter- tainer. Ken performed at the locol coffee house frequently. An octive member of the Chapel Choir, Glee Club, Musical Club Shows, and intramurol teams, Ken has made mony friends ot the Academy. Another of his many occomplishments was his success at beot- ing the system these last four years. Kens good nat- ured personality, eagerness to moke friends, and sin- cerity will ossure him certain success in the fleet. Four Hundred fifty-seven CLIFFORD " J " KOLSON, II Cliff came to Navy from Poftsdcm High Scfiool and Ohio State University. Bock at Potsdam High, he played several sports, and he has carried these inter- ests into midshipman life. He lives varsity lacrosse twelve months a year, and should be on all-american goalie on his effort alone. Cliff has not been on aca- demic slash since first semester Plebe year, but that hasn ' t phased his sense of humor - a sense of humor that has helped him into, and out of many interesting situations. A lover of things green, he ' s going Corps when he graduates. If Cliff is as outstanding as an officer as he has been a midshipmen, we expect to see him as Commandant within a few years. PETER deVALANGIN PATRICK Pete arrived at the Academy from the old country, " having spent the previous six years in Germany. An Army brat, he decided on the Navy, because he want- ed to fly. Born in Salzburg, Austria, he was one of the few midshipmen to major in his native language. Moth and science did not come easy for him, and he spent many long hours in search of knowledge, often trekking to the far ends of Bancroft Hall for the nec- essary answers. One of the mainstays of the Lucky Bag photography staff, he spent many weekends away from the Academy on hardship assignments. Pete IS sure to do well and will moke an excellent contribution to whatever branch of the Navy he chooses. I JAMES SMITH PERRY Jim, hailing from the Chattahoochee Valley deep in the Southland, came North to the shores of the Chesa- peake to extend his already deep-rooted family ties in the Navy tradition. He adjusted well to Academy life, and excelled throughout his four years both academi- cally and professionally, Jim was a great asset to have on any athletic team. Not noted for blinding speed, Jim compensated by becoming a drop-back passer and the Yogi ' Perry of the company Softball team. A real southern gentleman, Jim could really sweet talk the fairer sex However, late in his Young- ster year, Jim was cut down in his prime and present- ly claims he hod found the girl of his dreams.

R. will never forget the trials and tribulations of the commando raids on Gate Zero. His audacity is exceeded only by his vul- garity, and he is right at home with a gome of Prince Wales. ' Always smiling under closed lips, P. R takes and tells |okes with the best of them. As a fine athlete and hardworking Aero major, Paul will hit the fleet at Pensacola. A finer man the fleet shall never see DOYNE MACK SANDERS In four years, a person gains many things. Knowing Sandy Sanders and earning his friendship is a grati- fying ochievement. Perhaps one of the most conscien- tious midshipmen - a man who takes his responsibil- ities quietly but firmly - A man who is as unlimited as his dedication to principle and his devotion to ideals. But, he also values the pleasant things of life - Food, music, girls, or only a smile, and his tastes run from one extreme to the other. He always looks for the pleasant side of everything. Sandy is a sincere human being, never putting up fronts or trying to fool anyone by being somebody he is not - a quality, per- haps a courage, that we all should emulate. Whatever Sandy does, end wherever he goes, his presence will be felt. JOHN HARDING SCHILLING, JR. We con all agree that wherever John goes, he olways adds a little southern influence to those around him. Coming from Aiken, South Carolina, John brought to the Academy all the gentle refinements of a Southern Gentleman without the Mint Julep. His fine and varied taste in music is well known to his closest friends, and he has perhaps the greatest store of general world knowledge of any man olive. He ' s always been known for his helpfulness, especially when it came to paying for all the tolls on a certain Second Class bus trip. John ' s tremendous defensive rush on the football field IS |ust as dynamic as his able leadership. He has always intended to moke Navy Line his career, and he will undoubtedly be the best Des-man in the fleet after graduation. KEVIN WOODS SHARER Kevin came to Navy via points east and mostly west, since he is a Navy Junior. He always claimed he didn ' t know what he was in for, but tried to make the best of it. Although not fleet of foot, he enjoyed running over, around, and through the yard, and could be seem tromping around the fields almost any after- noon. One of the few men to figure out the numbers racket, he took a liking to engineering, and picked up mojor in aero on the way to grod school. Even though he was a proponent of bachelorhood, Kevin succumbed early in 2 c year. After grad school, he plans to pick up his wings in Pensacola and toke off for a career in air. JAMES MEEK SHEPPARD A native of Eldorado, Arkansas, Shep received high school All-Amencon honors in football as a guard. Jim quickly established himself as a true rozorback. More affectionately known as Hog or Pig, Jim lived up to his reputotion as a truly outstanding football player. As a starter for the plebes, and three-year member of the varsity, Jim established himself as a fierce tackier and great competitor. Studying was never a problem for Jim. He rarely did any. Although he was never found on the Dean ' s List, he could often be found on the borstools and dance floors in Georgetown. Jim ' s natural leadership ability was a tremendous osset during his four years at the Academy. His easy-going manner and amiability will surely guarantee him suc- cess in the future. Four Hundred Fifty-nine ERNEST MAYNARD SNOWDEN, II Ernie, who is known popularly as " Nesto, " came to the Naval Academy from Coronodo, a small town |ust north of Tijuano. A strong proponent of prolix par- lance, Ernie got along well in the EH G Department, but found the Engineering and Science Departments to be hopelessly insurmountable causes. A mainstay of the company soiling team, Ernie would be found almost every afternoon working out on the " sheets " of his boot. Foil gave him the opportunity to again display his remarkable prowess on the company vol- leyball courts. An avid sun-worshipper, Ernie should find all of his immediate desires, and then some, ful- filled at Pensocolo upon graduation. MARK EDWARD SPONG Sponger, Sponge, or |ust plain Mark all describe the some lively fellow. Coming from Old Des Moines, Iowa, he quickly overcame his " country " background to become one of the best liked men in Sixth Compa- ny. His mellow boss blended every Sunday with the Chapel Choir. Active in company intramurals, he al- ways seemed to find time to write to his O.A.O., or if his writing was caught up, sleep. Wading through mounds of Russian History, his ma|or, he could al- ways spare a moment for the sciences, his nemesis. Unlike most Mids, Mark come to know the town of Annapolis very well, especially the picturesque alleys and back roods. After graduation, the friendly skies of Navy beckon him. JEFFREY DEAN STANLEY Coming to the Severn Shores from somewhere in Cali- fornia called " Lemoore, " Jeff never encountered prob- lems in adopting to the rigors of military life ... he never adapted. During his four-year stay at Navy, his sporting activities varied from plebe swimming team, to varsity soiling, and finally to varsity pod-man and two-letter restrictee. Jeff was never one to ignore a female form of ony description, o trait which was to cause considerable discussion omong his numerous friends. His thirst for brew, likewise of any descrip- tion, was equally insatiable. Jeff occasionally mode the mistake of mixing wine and women, which led him on fiery trail that was entertaining to oil but equolled by none. With some aid from a condescend- ing Commondont, and a liberal Academic Board, ieff will travel to Pensocolo to eorn his wings of gold. Four Hundred Sixty JAMES PAIGE SWOOPE Swoopie, someflmes known as Squawman, came to Navy after graduation from fiigfi school in New Smyr- na Beach, Florida, and a brief stay in Marion Institute. Being a Florida sun-worshiper, Swoopie could always be found complaining about the winters in Annapolis and praising the sun-tanned girls of Florida. With a knock for figures both financial and feminine, he was forever having problems with both. Barber Seville ' s academic achievements were most often accom- plished within hours of exams, and all physical train- ing was concentrated on his funny form " which has shown to be competition approved. Jim plans to be a Naval Aviator upon graduation, and intends to make the Navy a life-long career, providing his eyes hold out, and the men in green don ' t enlist him. EDWARD CARLO TEMPESTA During his stay, Ed showed himself to be a mon who sticks to his beliefs, trying to sway anyone who be- lieves differently. Ed came to Navy following a high school football career, but decided to modify his goal of ploying for the Big Blue ofter experiencing a loss of weight. Undaunted, Fast Eddie turned to lacrosse, re- ceiving one plebe and three varsity letters there. Ed adopted the policy of working hard through the week, and os a reward, ploying equally hard during the weekend. This policy was known to be defective in only one case - second class wires. Always eager for a little excitement, he proved that anybody can hove fun at Navy with effort, courage, and superior planning. The Navy will benefit from his friendliness, perseverance, and leadership ability. ROBERT ALAN WACHTEL Bob come to the Naval Academy from for off Bethes- do, Maryland, with the hope of going to medical school after graduation. Although the rood has been rough and the wayside stops short. Bob managed to pick up wife-to-be, and a whole pile of lasting friends without losing sight of any of his goals. He wos always respected as a man who believed and octed on his beliefs but never as a man who was sorry he acted. Bob will go far, not through o smile, o glad hand, or a word of praise but through excellent participation, diligent work and a mama for perfec- tion. He takes pride in his |ob and o |ob well done. With these attributes Bob must succeed. THOMAS STANLEY WOLFE A native of Halifax, Pennsylvania, Tom come to USNA directly from Halifax Area High School, where he graduated as one of the top members of his doss academically. Tom continued to excel in grades at Navy, where he had the QPR for Superintendent ' s List every semester. Unfortunately, he was deprived of his extra weekend several semesters, because Coach Higgins seemed to feel his swimming style wos not up to Olympic standards. Between pod labs " and subsquod workouts, Tom found time to porticipate actively in intramural competition, where his spirit ond competitiveness were on asset to any team. Regardless of his final service selection, Tom will be a valuable member of the Naval Service. Four Hundred Sixty-one IM SECOND CLASS LEFT TO RIGHT FROM BACK ROW: J. K. Gat- chell, J. W. Vivoh, J. F.

Tick " also displays a natural ability in oth- letics. Although his diminutive size prevents him from participating in heavyweight sports, it doesn ' t mean that he can ' t be a member of a winning 1 50 lb. foot- ball team. Tick " has hod difficulties in ocademics, but has managed to survive the challenge posed by the academic department. With Tick ' s winning atti- tude, he will definitely leave his mark in whatever branch of the service he plans to enter, ROBERT FLOYD BERGER After a year at Oklohomo University, " Bergs " came to the Naval Academy and began to follow in the foot- steps of his older brother. He seemed to take Plebe Summer right in stride, while at the same time hold- ing down a starting role on the baseboll team. With the exceptions of the Uncle Jake " and Bucks ' Win- dow " incidents, " Robbie " mode it through Plebe Year in fine shape. With the coming of Youngster Year, however, Bergs found his first love at Novy ... the Pad. Academically, Bob ' s efforts are focused on o Mechanical Engineering major. Twice a Brigade Champ in rugby, he also finds time in the fall to play 150 lb. football where he is an " all-world " candidate. Upon graduation. Bergs is planning both a career in the Navy and marriage. WILLIAM GLENN BORRIES Buzz, Novy Junior, came to USNA well oriented in the Navy way of life. Being the son of a well-known graduate of the class of " 35, Buzz worked hard to sus- toin fine trodition. With a minimum of money and maximum of effort, Buzz was able to drink more cokes than any other mid in the Brigade, having a chain of pop-top lids that could stretch across the Atlantic. Even with such o steady diet, Buzz was able to fore well under the tough academic barrages. We will never forget Buzz ' s efforts in intramural soccer and light-weight footboll, by which he added to the company ' s drive for the Brigade titles. We hope to see the Buzzard flying high in the seat of on F-4 some- where in the world. MICHAEL CORBEn BROWN, JR. Known to all his classmates os " Chorlie, " Mike en- tered Novy via North Carolina Stote. Plebe year was spent in proving to a certain firstie that Charlie Brown " wasn ' t the one referred to when he sold, ■ One of us won ' t be here at the end of the year " Al- though ocodemics were not Mike s forte, he managed to outwit the Ac Board and greatly improve his grodes by making promises to certain green machines and wrangling deals with the Admiral. A true South- ern Gentleman, he is equally at home on the varsity tennis courts or in the woters of MacDonough Hall. His loyalty to friends and clossmotes could never be questioned. Mike ' s hard work, easy wit, spirit, and dedication insure him a successful and bright future in the fleet. FouJ Hundred Sixty-five _ ._ ._ _ M DON MICHAEL CRITES Mick " come fo the Acaciemy from Bluffton, Ohio. Active in many sports in high school, " Critter " found company sports to his liking. Sure honcis on the vol- leyboll court, oncJ wingecj feet on the football field, Mick was always outstanding. A strong competitor, ond good sportsman, Mick ' s quick humor and broad smile won him many friends at Canoe U. Unlike many Mids, Mick has his career mapped out. A political fu- ture gleams in his eye, as he hopes someday to be o senator. To this end, he concentrated his time in the Bull department, and could usuolly be found working on those grades. But life for Mick was never oil work and no play After all, he can flip a clack better than anyone in the company. Mick says the future is filled with Marine wings and twelve kids. We know he will go for. LARRY GENE DENTON " Dent " hails from Bristol, Virginia, where he wos steeped in the traditions of the South. Coming directly to the Academy from high school, he spent Plebe year hiding from the grasps of certain upperclassmen and en|oying grand chow packages from home. Due to his magic pillow, " academics at the Academy proved to be no great strain on Dent, o regulor on the Superin- tendents List. Free periods found him usually beneath his blankets and o pile of car magazines. However, he was never too busy to help out o classmate, either with his quick wit or sound logic. Culminating one of the greatest victories over " Navy " will be Dent ' s mar- riage to his Plebe year dancing partner after gradua- tion. A Naval Aviator from the beginning. Dent ' s en- thusiasm and ingenuity will undoubtedly moke him a valuable asset to the Fleet. JEFFREY scon ELIASON Jeff come to Annapolis from the booming metropolis of Quincy, Illinois, on the bonks of the Mississippi, where he hod excelled In sports and extracurricular octivities. Being a theoretical math major, Jeff found little trouble with academics here at USNA. He was on the Superintendent ' s List every semester but one, and managed to wear stars three of those semesters. ■ Ell, " OS he was affectionately known, as a pole vaul- ter was a mainstay of Coach Gherdes track team for three years, while achieving many honors. His free periods and youngster afternoons would find him tucked neatly away into the " Blue Trampoline " with the record player tuned to 100,000 decibels. Jeff plans career in either submarines or surface line and will undoubtedly find great success in his every endeavor. EDWARD PRESTON GRAVES An honor graduate from Wheeling High School in Wheeling, Illinois, Ed come to the Severn Boat School with every intention of becoming a Navy pilot. Since then, he has worked diligently toward a major in aero space, and has distinguished himself among his class- mates OS on " aero slosh. " Ed, better known as " E. P., " has also distinguished himself in the fall by ploying company volleyball, durmg the winter by helping to round out a brigade champion lightweight football team, and in the spring by playing battalion tennis. There is no doubt that E. P. will become a pilot, and perhaps even a ' Blue Angel. " However, there is one thing that is for certain, and that is, if Ed does It, then he will do it well. JOHN GREGORY HOLEWA John, " The Cloud, " come sloshing down from the snowy Northlands of Minneapolis, Minnesota, to be- come a Navy mon. Entering USNA directly from high school, John would have experienced a fairly routine Plebe Year, hod he not been tempted to dump wafer on youngster pep-rallies and undergo the most exten- sive Hundredth night buildup on record. An avid Twins and Viking fan, John en|oyed participating in sports OS much OS watching, and was on important member of battalion ond company basketball, football, and Softball teams. Having earned a minor in Aerospace Engineering, John anxiously owoits graduation, which holds in store a career in Naval Aviation. John ' s re- laxed, sincere monner should mean a highly success- ful career marked by many friends along the way. PAUL DOUGLAS HOLLENBACH Coming to the Naval Academy from Woodruff High School in Peoria, Illinois, " Holly " quickly learned how to exist here. He spent half of Plebe Summer on the baseball field with the Plebe team, and then half of Plebe Year with the dinghy sailors. During the first year, he showed his motunty and dedication by doing good job in everything. The things that he was best at, besides sleeping, were getting good grades with minimum effort and calling his hometown sweet- heart. During second class summer, he was assigned to the Plebe detail. " Dorchal Green Ears " also ex- celled In sports, and was a vital port of the company basketball, softball, and football teams. Upon gradu- ation, he will be looking forward to on immediate master ' s in oceanography, and will be assured a suc- cessful career. four Hundred Sixty-six % ' k " lilt k lint ittt TERRY RICHARD HUFF The " huffer, " as he is known to his classmates, hails from East High in Akron, Ohio. Following three suc- cessful years there, the Huffer traveled to the Naval Acaciemy via NAPS. His hord work on the athletic field OS well as his academic determinotion brought him to the hallowed halls of Mother Bancroft. Huffer was greatly interested in athletics, and won a starting job as a Plebe on the defensive wall. However, a shoulder injury has hampered his ploy, but not his spirit. An ex- tremely easygoing individuol, he is always ready to help anyone in need. His free periods found him bot- tling with the legendary " Pad Monster. " However, First Closs year forced him to split his free time with the wardroom. Huffer will be a valuable asset to the fleet in whatever copocity he chooses to serve His sense of humor and ability to keep friends will take him long way. DENNIS MICHAEL LOSH Hailing from the small town of Lorain, Ohio, Denny came to the shores of the Severn right ofter his grod- uotion from Admiral King High. Having on excellent educational background, Den struck out the tough Naval Academy academics, choosing Spanish as his field of concentration in which to attain a ma|or. Be- sides being o scholar. Den won his N-star in baseball, pitching and playing the outfield, ond spent most of his time each afternoon in the fall and the spring on Lawrence Field. Study hour would find Den either at his desk writing letters or wandering about the com- pany area discussing anything and everything. In the future, Denny hopes to be found happily married to his hometown sweetheart and attached to a squad- ron of P-3 ' s. RONALD ANDREW MARCHETTI " Gino " hails from a small suburb of Los Angeles called Sepulvedo, and was always glod to say he was Colifornian. He come to the Academy fresh from o year at NAPS Although on appendectomy half way through Plebe year slowed him down for o while, he managed to letter in lacrosse as o Youngster, ond his presence was always evident on the varsity football ond lacrosse teams by second class yeor. Not to be overshadowed by his athletic obility, Gino from the start was consistently on the Superintendents and Dean ' s List Gino was always known for his flamboy- ant personality and search of good times. Classmates spent nights in eager anticipation of hearing his esco- podes which always brought o smile With his deter- minotion, personolity, ability to get along with oth- ers, and ability to get the job done, the Novol service will be rewarded by Gino ' s service. A four Hund ' ed Sixty-seven REGINALD TIMOTHY MARTEL Hailing from Kennebunk, Maine, Tinn is the oldest member of our class. Before coming to USNA, he ot- tendeci Heidleberg College in Tiffin, Ohio, Nuclear Power School, and NAPS for two years. Although at times Tim was close to 2.00, he always kept his head above water. He seemed to have a little outside help, probably due to his constant effort. Tim derived great pleasure in bumping heads " on the intramural fields playing football, fieldball, and lacrosse. When liberty went down, he was gone, spending as much time as possible with Bev. The Old Man " has vowed to run bock to the Chapel after graduation to be the first m line. Tim will never hove any trouble in the future, no matter what branch of the service he chooses. HAROLD MASHBURN, JR. Harold, or Junior " as he is better known, come to the Academy from the oil fields of Seminole, Okloho- mo. A state tennis champion in high school. Junior found that the Navy squash courts were more his size. But, excelling in squash wos not his only task. Many long hours were spent hitting the books, with good grades as the result. Even so, he always managed to be in the rack before twelve. Junior is one of few Mids who con claim four years with the same girl. No one needed to ask where he spent his weekends. A June wedding is planned. The son of a Marine, it is only natural that Junior will be wearing the green after graduation. The Corps couldn ' t pick a finer man. Four Hundred Sixtyeighl ' V i % 1» %■■ • " •%■■ -4, " i BROCK ALIEN McMUNN Brock was recruited from USAFA prep school, which put him in good stead for the rigors of Plebe year He wos soon known as a hord worker end o good- natured guy. A man known for his fear of the Aca- demic Board, he always managed to elude them in the end. Athletically, Brocks graceful leaping form wos always found supporting his company on the playing field. Socially, he was never locking company, and wos the ob|ect of some well-planned feminine schemes. However, he was always able to move fost enough to mointoin his freedom. Brock seems headed for long and illustrious coreer in Navy helos. He will ossuredly be successful, no motter whof the future holds in store. ROBERT DAVID MICHAEL Bob Michoel, alias Roscole Redshorts, hails from Ardmore, Oklahoma, about 100 miles north of Dallas, Texas. Rascole has brought to the Academy a new brand of humor, and with it has elevated our compa- ny intramurol sports to Brigade champion caliber. As typical of the class of 70s academic endeovors, he corries on the tradition of brown rather than brains. Mr. Michael participates in all phases of life here at USNA, and always puts forth his best efforts. The Plebes received a taste of his western style discipline during Plebe summer, and probably will cherish the memory of Rascole s voice at morning come orounds. Roscole will leave his mark in whatever branch of the service thot he enters PATRICK DANIEL MILANO Pot hails from the thriving metropolis of Herkimer, New York. Entering directly from high school, Pat, olios The Wop " or The Toad, " has breezed through the Academy ' s rigorous acodemics. A perennial mem- ber of the varsity dean s team with o major in phys- ics, Pot has always hod time to help someone solve a problem or cram for o test. His classroom ability was only exceeded by his ability as o practical joker. Whenever o novel bit of humor appeared, the Trick- ster " was olwoys the first named as the source. Pot ' s been a stolwort on the compony and battalion level in great variety of sports, from fieldball to wrestling. Although undecided as yet to his service selection, we ore sure Pot will do well in any branch he chooses to enter. RANDY JAMES RADEACKAR Rods ' native Missounon from the bustling me- tropolis of Cedar Hill, orrived at the Acodemy directly from high school. Being on ovid sports enthusiast, the Stump " has onchored the line of the bott football teom since Plebe Yeor, ond can be seen the rest of the year implanted in the goals of the bott locrosse and company fieldball teoms. While on leave, he attempts to spend as much time as possible on skiis, be it snow or water. A fonotic St. Louis fon, one could always determine the footboll, basketball, or hockey stand- ings simply by studying the expression on the Stumps face after o hard workout in the wardroom. While his abilities in moth ond science laid dormant for the most port of his stay at USNA, his prowess in Bull car- ried him to a European History minor. Nothing ofter graduation should block Rod ' s " way to a successful Naval career. HENRY MILTON SHAW, JR. Henry, better known as honk or Hawk, " come to the Novol Academy straight from a four year engagement ot John Adorns High School, South Bend, Indiana. While at the Academy, he battled two mom adver- saries, academics and woter, managing to defeat both in the end Honk was also known to have on af- fection for the roughest sports: wrestling, fieldboll, and rugby being his favorites. Despite his relatively small stature, he disployed a remorkoble ferocity on the playing field. As the pilot of the Wine Wagon, ' he was easily distinguishable by his clean threads ' and uptight gome, " using both more often and with greoter success than most of his contemporaries. After spending two years at =15 Village Row, Honk will undoubtedly pursue his career at Pensacolo, Flori- da. OS a Naval Aviator DOUGLAS VAUGHN SMITH Being a Navy |unior, Doug was well adjusted to the Novol Academy before his arrival. One of Doug s as- sets was that he lived only minutes away from home and his wife-to-be, o student at Morylond U. An oirdole all the way, he wonts to fly, rother thon feel the bite of the fierce North Atlantic. " The back of his B-robe is well lettered with numerals from var- ious Brigade Championship teams, including soccer and squash Teddy-bear, as Sandy so aptly colls him, IS on ovid admirer of the three Ws; wine, women, and wistful song, not necessarily in that order. Doug will probably stay in the Navy for 20 years, and perhaps then If he likes it will moke o ca- reer of it. Four Hundred Sixly-nine WILLIAM LOUIS STOCKHO A product of St. Louis, Missouri, Bill come to the Acad- emy from Lcdue High School, where he was on honor student, and was active in singing and the rifle team. He has mostered the unusual art of cramming, which IS shown by his 3.4 QPR. While at the Academy, Bill has shown a sincere desire to become the very best Navol officer possible. He is the skipper of his own boot in the Sailing Squadron during the fall and spring, while during the winter he leads the rifle team to more championships. Even with all theSfe activities, however, he has not managed to keep from getting the famous First-Class " roll " above his belt. His major in Naval Architecture, and his desire to excel should carry Bill to the top of whatever field he enters. Four Hundred Seventy JOHN MALCOLM THOMPSON A native of Media, Pennsylvanio, Johnny came to USNA by way of Great lakes (Machinist Motes School), Bainbridge (Nuclear Power School) and NAPS. One of the old men of the Brigade at 24, " Males " en- joys the finer things in life - classical music, poetry, and women. The last he can only en|oy from a dis- tance though, because he has been spoken for since early in Youngster year. A " black shoe " all the way, when John joins the fleet the Brigade will lose not only the chairman of the sailing squadron race com- mittee and the best barber in many years, but a great athlete in track and squash. Twenty years after John graduates, he will still be giving orders, but when he barks, captains will be jumping to attention. BENJAMIN WILLIAM TUCKER, JR. After graduating from high school in California, Ben spent a year at NAPS before entering the Academy. Having been a standout performer on the football field in high school and prep school, Ben continued his career by starting for the Plebe team. He also broad- ened his athletics by starting for the Plebe lacrosse team. He continued his outstanding lacrosse career by lettering his Youngster year. Ben has also gained great respect off the athletic fields by taking port in the many activities around the Academy. His easy- going manner and outgoing personality have gained him a great number of friends, and his aggressive attitude toward any |ob he undertakes will insure him of successful future. ROBERT ANTHONY WOO Bobby Woo entered the hallowed halls of USNA after attending Saint John ' s College High School in his home city, Washington, D. C. While acquiring the name " Woostein, " he became known to all members of the Brigade as the man who brought true " soul " to USNA, OS is evidenced by his cooperation m organizing the newest sound in Mother B - " The J. G. ' s. " Woo- stein never was one to let studies get in the way of having a good time, and he hod his good times in many ways. Always held in high esteem by his class mates as well as those of other classes, Bobby wil never encounter any problems when it comes to deal ing with men, a profitable asset for a man who in tends to become on officer in the United States Ma rine Corps.

After his arrival, he was quick to observe the ocivontages the Academy hod to offer, namely grad terms. His attroction to fine clothes made Oscar a permanent fixture at Peerless. Oscar s other inactivities during his four year stay on the Chesopeake included compony and battalion sports, sun bathing, attempts at cultivoting some hair and lost but not least, his livestock. Although an avid ski-enthusiast, he wasn ' t oble to pose a very serious threat to anyone ' s gold medals. Oscar managed to moke acquaintances from coast to coast, but never anything permanent. Oscar ' s discreet, conservative approach to life should make him friends wherever he may be. Whichever bronch of service he finally choos- es to enter will gain a hardworking and dedicated officer ROBERT CRAIG BRUBAKER Bru showed early promise for a life on the water by spending 15 months in the Naval Reserve. Never one to settle for anything but the best, he changed his oddress from Belleville, Illinois to Annapolis on the Severn. Grad terms and the books presented the greatest challenges to Bru during his four year stay at the Acodemy. The Superintendent kept him on his moiling list making Bru s collection of academic warnings one of the finest ever assembled. And then there was P M. He concentrated on company sports and one of them fastpitch softball, cost him a three week stay in the hospital. Bru s wit, combined with the keys to a concealed V.W., made his friendship on experience to remember. His easygoing manner helped make everyone look on the bright side of things. Bru ' s motivation and ability to get along with people will serve to moke him one of the finest offi- cers the Navy receives in June. MICHAEL ALFRED COSGROVE Coming from an Air Force family, Cos has been en- couraged to a career in the Navy with the prospects of flying. He came to the Academy with a desire to swim or run cross country, but ended up in the back seat of shell, lettering on the lightweight crew team for two years. Aside from the many futile hours spent with academics, Mike also devoted port of his time to the Log and acted as on Honor Representative for two yeors. Always appreciative of leave and liberty, Cos has grown to en|oy the times of relaxation with the one basic commodity absent at the Academy Anxious for career of continued travel and responsibilities, Mike looks forward to graduation ond life in the real world. TERRENCE ALLEN COUNCILOR Terry entered the Naval Academy after spending a very successful year at St. Joseph s College, only fifty miles from his hometown of Gory, Indiana. One of the high paints of his Plebe year was the knowledge that he hod snaked the Army quarterbacks girl while attending St. Joes. Knarph ' soon discovered the wroth of the academic department when he tried to apply civilian study habits to the curriculum of Chesa- peake University of Naval Technology. However, he survived and the Steel City Polock soon learned to cul- tivate his QPR and moke it grow. Once studies Were no longer such a big obstacle, he found time to spend on the Ring Dance Committee, the Closs Policy Com- mittee, and on the Newmon Club. Terry ' s persistence and sincerity ore traits that his friends will remember him by, and the traits that will make him a success in the Navy. Four Hundred Seventy-three RICHARD ALEXANDER CREIGHTON After a year at Long Beach City College, Joey " come to USNA from that California city and quickly adopted to both academic and military life as his 3.5 and three stripes indicate. An Electrical Engineering major, he should hove been given a professorship for the num- ber of hours of E. I. he gave to classmates, no matter how busy he was with his own studies. Beginning sec- ond semester of second class year, the exponential decay of his QPR was exceeded only by that of his re- ceding hairline. The former he owes to that portable SONY, the latter to hours of batting practice behind the plate. Nothing will be said here about his bat, os that will write its own story. " A hard worker who always gave and asked for one-hundred percent, he will carry that attitude into the fleet and become one of Naval Aviations finest officers. NICHOLAS LEE DeMAI Nick ' s entrance to the Naval Academy and ad|ustment to the service was not a novel experience, having been a member of on Air Force family for the previous 18 years. With the ability to coll numerous states home, he is well traveled and enpys going new places and doing new things. After deciding to boycott the borber shop since Plebe year, Nick has gone on to oc- complish other feats previously unknown to Mother Bancroft. Aside from maintaining a zoo, and on orien- tal incense parlor, our " Happy Hippi " tried to devote his time to more important things, such as his mem- bership in the Sun Club, and the practice of studying in the supine position. Anxious to go Navy Air after graduation, he should moke quite on impact on the fleet. Alwoys easygoing and personable, Nick is as- sured of success in any field of endeavor he chooses to enter. ROBERT LEE FITZGERALD Fitz came to USNA after fighting a losing battle at the University of Illinois his freshman year. Upon receiv- ing Son of Deceased Veterans appointment, Fitz gallantly decided to pursue the fortunes of a NAVY MAN! Bob ' s perfect mixture of wit, studiliness, and good looks made him on instont success at Navy. He was often mistaken for Robert Vaughn by those ad- miring females, and to his classmates, Fitz served as the company cigarette vendor. A jock at heart, Bob muscled his woy into fame on the Big 8 B-Boll team. He was always eager to give academic assistance to the local idiots, and to offer o well respected opinion at class meetings. A fine and loyal friend, Fitz will be a compliment to the Naval service. m i -tc, MICHAEL GLENN FRICK From the heart of Atlanta and Southwest High emerged the " Georgia Peach, " spikes in hand, to moke his mark upon the Boot School by the Bay. He made more of an impression on the trock than on the academic board, however, and will be remembered as the all-around athlete ... all year around. From the foil cross-country feom, of which he was captain, to the winter indoor track team, to the spring outdoor track team, Michael never missed a semester as a varsity runner, nor on opportunity to redecorate his ' N sweater. His long wind served him well in other areas. A foreign affairs minor, his motto was Speak quickly and carry o big shovel. " A gusty second bari- tone, he will be missed by both the Glee Club and Catholic Choir. Michael hopes to eventually |oin his father in the field of law, a vast and demanding one in today ' s Navy. Although Mother Boncroft will be losing a valuable midshipman in June, Navy will be gaming an invaluable officer. GILBERT MANUEL GONZALES Gil came to the Academy from Las Vegas, New Mexi- co, after spending one year in college at New Mexico Highlands University. Coming from a landlocked part of the country, Gil spent most of his time looking for a Plebe from New Mexico. Academics were no ma|or problem, through he was noted for going from aca- demic warning to the Superintendent ' s List in |ust eight weeks. It was a rare occasion to find Gil in his room on weekends since he was usually out dragging or playing ball with his friends. If he was in his room, the lights were sure to be out, and he ' d be sound asleep. Gil took an active port in company and battal- ion sports, and he also played three seasons of soccer on the Plebe and J.V. teams. Working and- dealing with people and being part of a team have always been the most important things in Gil ' s life, and with this in mind, he is very enthusiastically looking for- ward to a long career in the Navy. Four Hundred Seventy-four " 21 It!. ' 4 % ALFREDO GRAHAM Alfie, hailing from Lima, Peru, came to USNA in the summer of 1966, |ust In time to experience his third Plebe year! The language barrier was a hurdle for Al to overcome, but olso o blessing to a fun seeking Plebe. Any course concerned with math or science was quickly mastered by Alfie. But, to his dismay, the Bull Department helped to even out his grode-point over- age. After classes, Alfie could be found in the fencing loft, in the instruction pool, or most likely, in the rock. Groduation from Boat School " will find our Peruvian Irishman " getting married to his lovely sweetheart from back home. Alfie ' s wit, worm friendliness, ond sincerity will be the traits his North American omigos will always remember him for. FRED MARTIN HALL Fred came to us after attending the University of Cali- fornia, Berkeley. It soon became apparent that mi- nors in both math and engineering would be o breeze for Fred, or for anyone else who carried solid D ' s " in their electives. His acodemic performance may be ex- plained by minor mental deficiency, while a not too brilliant record in aptitude was the result of on unfor- tunate olfactory condition - it never turned brown. To the delight of his opponents, Fred boxed in the " Brigades " for two years. Success for Fred finally come on the battalion weightlifting teams. He couldn ' t lift much, but didn ' t get beat up as often. Af- fectionately known as Derf " to his friends - the other 4,000 coll him Derf, too - This guy is not with- out his good points. Displaying a great deal of morol fiber, Fred had a perfect Sunday Mass attendance rec- ord while at the Academy. Oerfs graduation will be a great benefit to the town of Norfolk - he wtll be going to Pensocola. DALE COOPER HARRIS Harry, as he is affectionately called by his clossmotes, hails from the dream port of Norfolk, Virginia. An accomplished artist, Horry hos spent mony hours at the drawing board, producing items ronging from Army posters to company crests. Dale s athletic en- deavors included running from church party to church party with the remoinder of his time divided among tennis, gymnostics, and handball in an attempt to keep from dominoting any one sport. Obtaining good grades with o minimum of work was one of his spe- cialties, leaving him time to continue his activities as company entrepreneur. A washout from the oero- spoce team, H. C. found a greater challenge in the field of management. Never one to conform. Dale has chosen to forego the opportunity to join his father in green, and will seek the wings of gold. Four Hundred Seventy-five JOHN FREDRICK HEATON John, known to his classmates as " Heats " or Rick, came to the trade school on Severn from the heart of the Midwest, Conton, Missouri. Preferring the spartan life of discipline. Rick ignored the pleas of the coeds and found his way to the Academy, After an enlight- ening year on the plebe crew team, Heats undertook an even more rewarding career in the pursuit of com- pany and battalion and female sports. Never one to sweat academics too much. Heats always stayed ahead of the academic department. He even managed to moke the Superintendent ' s List before settling down to casual academic endeavor. Rick is undecided whether it will be Navy Air or Subs when he gradu- ates, but whichever it is, his likable personality and quick wif will insure him success. CHARLES PATRICK JACKSON " C. P. " come to the Academy after living in various ports of the South. Due to his parent ' s absence from the States during the moprity of his stay at Navy, his camper. The Moveable Feast, " has mode many ex- peditions during leave periods. Some unexplainoble force named Kathy usually attracted Pot and his truck to U.N.C.G. during weekends, but, according to Pat, he was by no means whipped. Pat ' s ' in " in Mrs. Mar- shall ' s office automatically placed him in the position of Company June Week Cottage Commander. His presence at the Plebe Tea Fights usually proved to benefit Pat and the rest of the " Unholy Trio " more than the unfortunate " Frosh, " but then again R.H.I. P. Pat ' s loyalty and friendship can always be depended on when needed, and these some qualities should be benefit to Naval Aviation after Mr. and Mrs. C. P. complete o vocation at Pensocola. CLIFFORD HASTINGS KinLE, JR. Cliff, affectionately known to his classmates as Fat Albert, " come to USNA from Sturgeon, Pennsylvania. His high school career is marked by numerous athletic triumphs and many other interesting adventures. After a year of fun and games at NAPS, Cliff come to the Academy with visions of himself after graduation charging up his number 289 with John Wayne, Ser- geant Rock, and a platoon of cold-blooded |uggies. Cliff ' s time at Navy is marked by an oufstonding rec- ord on the intramural fields, when Navy Football missed Cliff, they mode a big mistake. Cliff is also known for the company he keeps on weekends, espe- cially that honey " he met in Philadelphia, after the Novy-Notre Dome football game. Cliff ' s ma|or asset is his loyalty and devotion, when help is needed. Cliff con be depended upon. The Marine Corps con be filled with |ust a little more pride the day Cliffy rolls into Quantico. Four Hundred Seventy six ' .X t " ' " fe TIMOTHY ALAN KOK Tim come to the Naval Academy from Wyoming, Michigan, a suburb of Grand Rapids, with a very posi- tive attitude toward a Naval career. This attitude helped him through the trials of plebe year. He wos one of the few fortunate " mids to be billeted on o fleet oiler for youngster cruise (Lont mid, no less) due to an unexpected dry docking of his DLG. Tim actively porticipoted in the intramural program, enjoying company football and softboll the most. Although academics were his forte, he found plenty of pod " time. His academic interests lay in mathematics and operations analysis. Tim set his sights early for Nucle- or Power os his service selection, with Navy Line as his olternotive. GREG CHARLES KOONS Greg, better known as Sugar Bear, " began his rogs- fo-riches story on a turkey farm in Chickosow County, Iowa, before moking it big here at Navy. After start- ing with on undefeated Plebe wrestling season, he went on to a brilliant two year career as a varsity poolie " before seeing more first team action. While wrestling took up most of his time, it was not his only athletic endeavor. " Bear " was also on accom- plished Yo-Yo expert, and being no dumb sod, was oble to put on frequent study hour floor shows with- out serious harm to his QPR Greg s good natured per- sonality and willingness to help anyone at any time has eosily made him one of the most liked persons in his class. A successful career can be the only valid forecast of Greg ' s future. HARRY JOSEPH LANDAU Horry Joseph Landau, known as 0. J.

He was and is a standout in all he undertakes On Superintendent ' s List and Captain of the footboll team Plebe year, J. tockleci the Academy head on. Participating in both intramural ond varsity athletics, he has proven himself a fine athlete As the years hove passed, he has developed a new talent that is seldom seen omong the ranks of the midshipmen - that of meeting some of the most beautiful girls around. His activities were diverse and interesting, and come the weekend, he could be seen With Jodi and Lewi - |ust one step ahead of the exec- utive department Horry is a man who really cores ond con be counted upon when the chips ore down. He plans to fly the fast ones in the neor future Good Luck, 0. J.! y JAMES NICKEY LINGAN Jim graduated from Gonzogo High School in nearby Washington DC, where he mode " the fateful deci- sion. " After arriving at the Academy, he was quick to adjust to the wonderful life enjoyed by so few. He soon became known for his hard work and even dis- position, especially at the boll park, where, after being red-necked " by numerous opponents, he op- propriotely began to answer to Ears. " No one will ever know if it was the power of his curly hair, or his golden right arm that added so much to Navy bose- boll during his tenure ot USNA. Baseball was not his only love, which is so evident in the manner that CHK " made use of his Saturday nights. Anyone who knows him will verify that he is a man who knows where he is going and stands behind what he feels, which when coupled with his ambition and ability ore sure to moke him one of the finest Naval Aviators. MICHAEL JOSEPH MAGALEHI Born and raised in sunny Colifornio, Mike always hoped somebody, somewhere in the Navy Department would transfer the Naval Academy to a more pleosant climate. Failing that, Mags " will be seeking duty in that most perfect " of oil atmospheres - o nuclear powered submorine. While interned behind the grey wolls of Boncroft, he wos a participant in various ac- tivities. Foil and spring afternoons found him sailing Navy ' s ocean racers, and in the winter, it was compa- ny lightweight football. Mike was in the Juice Gong ond Mosqueroders for a year, and every Sundoy morning, mode a sleepy attempt to sing tenor with the Catholic Choir. Studying claimed some more of his waking time, but Superintendents Weekends and stors were worth the effort. Still, Mags " managed to become a member in good standing of The Pod Mas- ters by utilizing his free periods to make up for lost time. Four Hundred Seventy-seven 1 DOUGLAS PETER MANDEL Doug came to the Naval Academy from a sleepy little town of Watford City in North Dakota. Along the way, he spent a year at the University of Idaho. Being raised on a ranch developed in " D. P. " a deep love for the outdoors and a good notured sense of humor, which Mother Bancroft and her stone walls hove only sharpened. While at the Academy, Doug has been a consistent participant in company sports, playing on the fieldball and Softball teams. The real battles, however, have taken place not on the playing field, but on the desk top. Academics, a constant challenge, seemed to bring out the most in effort and determi- nation from ' D. P. " So much so, that he had to spend the rest of the time recovering from his wars in the blue R and R zone. Positive that he doesn ' t want to wear green upon graduation, Doug seems headed for a career in Navy Line - a billet he ' ll more than fill. JAMES EMMin NOLAN, JR. Trying to become a schoolteacher the hard way, Jim kissed his girl good-by, and come to Annapolis from Cornwall, New York. Innocent and full of enthusiasm, Jim soon adapted to the Navy way. Nick-named ' Truk " which he preferred over Je|ly-belly, " Jim soon became a mainstay in the 20th and then 8th Company ' s bull sessions. If the conversation lagged, we could always count on Truk for a laugh. Grades came easy for Truk, so he took it easy, but he could always be counted on to help a classmate. A fierce competitor in intramural soccer, football, and soft- ball, Truk displayed surprising speed and athletic abil- ity. After graduation, Jim will finally find himself married to the same pretty girl he left four years be- fore. Truk may not hove the neatest desk on week- ends, but he has what it takes to become a fine Naval Officer. Four Hundred Seventy-eight ' ; A : a 1 .

Ever since then, he has had an academic board number, but has never been before that long green table. Perhops this is a result of his great love for mathematics, a subject which just lulls Al right to sleep. There is a field Al has ex- ceeded in though, moking and keeping friends. He has a great sense of humor, and olvi oys has a cheery word for everyone. Al is perhaps noted for his famous stotement, I think I love you, " which almost every girl he goes out with hears at one time or another. Al displays fine leadership abilities which will aid him in his service selection of Marine Corps. The Morine Corps IS lucky to get a person of his qualifications as oil friends and future friends of Al will agree. PATRICK JOHN SAVIDGE Pat IS man with a unique philosophy on life here at the Academy. He likes it. Not known as a student, but rather as a militonst, he established himself as a stal- wart member of the bog it " club early in his career here. His most famous ability is that of getting by, academically. Two of his interests while here were; first in his heart, shining shoes, and his second love. Lax.

J. s dream is to command a Swift Boot. After that, he hopes to follow in his fa- ther s footsteps as on admiral. Mostly the Wimp |ust wonts power. This California boy will make com- mander in the fleet, because he is, in fact, a hard worker at anything he wants to do. STEVEN MICHAEL SONGER Steve, an Air Force Junior who has traveled for and wide with his fomily, was born in Des Moines, Iowa. The traveling and tours of duty he encounters fol- lowing graduation will be nothing new to him. His current habitat is McLean, Virginia, where he attend- ed high school and graduated in 1964 Following high school, he enrolled at Virginia Polytechnic Institute. Steve remained at Blocksburg for two years, until the Navy and devotion to duty called him to the Academy. Steve played both football and lacrosse for Novy. His efforts for the famed Poolie Pack " culminated is being a better man for hoving played the sport. These efforts and his exploits with the Weems Creek La- crosse Club should stond him in good stead as he crosses the new horizon in June. JAMES SUTHERLAND SPORE, III Jim is the 6th generotion of his family to graduate from the Naval Acodemy. His father reached the rank of Captain before retiring to assume a new profession as high school teocher. Jim and his family did a lot of traveling before finally settling in McLean, Virginia. Jim finished his lost three years of high school in McLean, excelling in sports and academics, and pre- paring for four yeors with Mother B. " It was there that he met Jerrie, his bride to be. After entering the Academy, Jim divided his time between football and his girl. Academics fitted into his schedule, but they weren ' t his favorite pastime. June will see him head- ing down to Athens, Georgia and the Supply Corps School, following his father ' s footsteps. LEONARD MICHAEL SUPKO Lenny first hoped to enter the Academy with the Class of ' 68. Then it was 69. Finally, after two years at NAPS, Sup " entered the Academy with the Class of ' 70, where he was an instant success, especially on the athletic field. Through such devices as doting the coach ' s daughter he was able to play soccer and la- crosse all four of his years here. He was especially outstanding on the lacrosse field, being the starting goalie his lost two years. Sup was never much of one for the academics, but was always able to keep his head above water, and was one of the best liked men in the company. Saturday nights never found him in the hall, since he used his hometown of Brooklyn Park, Maryland, only thirty minutes from the Acade- my, to good advantage. The Academy will be losing one of its better midshipmen when Sup leaves, but the men in green will find on outstanding officer and person. HENRY EDMUND TABB, III Henry, known to his friends inside the gray walls os Ted, came to the Academy from St. Sebastian ' s High School in Newton, Massachusetts. Turning down a NROTC Scholarship to Tuft ' s University, Ted got an op- pointment to the Boot School through the Naval Re- serve. Ted didn ' t waste much time getting in the groove Plebe year by making friends with the local second doss. He earned his nickname of " 2.0 Ted " os a youngster by putting the ocodemic establishment to the test and still contends that anything above a 2.0 is gravy.

PAUL JOSEPH BORER Coming from Albion, Nebraska, Paul had to climb down from his tractor and kiss his eight brothers and sisters good-by before donning the bellbottoms of the Naval Academy. After a highly successful athletic ca- reer in high school, Paul decided to rechannel his ef- forts and moster the blue trampoline. While in this endeavor, " P. J. " developed his famous theory that grodes were directly proportional to the number of hours spent in the pad. Proof of Paul ' s theory could be seen in the darkness of his room, and the stars that he wore. In his waking hours, Poul pondered the problems of Aerospace Engineering and aided two championship rugby teams with his muscles. Paul will undoubtedly be a credit to Naval Aviation after pull- ing the June Week hat trick. ALAN RICHARD CUCK Dick came to USNA from Sacramento, Colifornio, after abandoning his Air Force heritage, because of his de- sire to fly for a first class outfit. An introduction is usually good for one laugh . . . after all, who would believe anyone who said that his name was Dick Click? From that point on, his quick wit kept everyone that he met in stitches. His interests are sports cars, money, Jolie (his talented poodle), and girls in that order. He is the greatest living authority in these fields - just ask him. Dick is on active member of on underground partnership known in the 9th Company OS " Hose and Nose, Inc. " He will always be remem- bered for his widely acclaimed " Twang Song, " and one doy " Click ' s Famous Naval Sayings " wi ll become part of Naval tradition. KURT MICHAEL DIETERLE Kurt found his way to the Academy from Detroit, Michigan, where he graduated from Notre Dome High School in 1965. A star football player in high school, Kurt soon found his true sport to be swimming, where he was consistently on the first team sub-squad. After a rough Plebe year, kurt managed to skate through the next three years as a Lit. minor. Due to the selec- tion of his minor, he was able to find ample time to ward off monsters under the covers of his pod. Upon graduation, Kurt hopes to become a Lit. minor in the Marine Corps. Kurt, with his quick wit and humor, is sure to get along with everyone he meets as long as nobody tells a Polock joke. DOUGLAS WARREN DIETZ Doug, a native of New York City, come to us from the Submarine Service. With this previous Navy experi- ence, Plebe Year posed no real problem. Waving at a Boston College cheerleader during a home gome march on, netted him his first form 2. Famous for his prowess on the handball court and his outstanding bowling game, he was also the largest consumer of cokes in the 9th Compony. One of the few New York Jets fons in Annapolis, he was also the Academy ex- pert on the New York Rangers. Academics posed no real problem for Doug, and he always seemed to pull the good grades out in the end. Doug plans to go Navy Air upon graduation, and we know he will be a great asset to the fleet. STEPHEN DONALD FLOYD Steve graduated from Westford Academy near Bos- ton, where his favorite pastimes were music and skiing. Unable to wax his skis at USNA, he distin- guished himself at the Academy by discovering his la- tent artistic abilities during second class year. Always friendly and willing to tear himself owoy from the books for recreationci purposes, he got along well with everyone. He was on outstanding member of the Plebe Rifle Team, until his eyesight forced a diversion to intromurol sports - as a member of the sideline lightweight football team, tennis team, and as ring on the gymnastics team. After graduation, he hopes to get seeing eye dog to keep him company in his MGB while heading for Pensocolo to be on NFO. four Hundred EighNlwo LEWIS WIUJS GOEN Honging up his surfboard and baggies, Lew left his home in Satellite Beach, Florida, and came to USNA to learn a new way to ride the woves.

JAY LAWRENCE JENKINS Jay came to the Naval Acodemy from the suburbs of New York City. He was affectionately known as the 9th Company surfer. Jay used his surfboord to stay one wave ahead of the academic board. When not on leave surfing, he maintained his reputation as the best disc |Ockey ever on WRNV. A familiar sight at the Academy was Joy plodding through a wires book with pipe stuck in his mouth. His true style came through at the conn of a Y. P., and he seemed happy facing the challenge of the Chesapeoke Boy. Upon groduo- tion, he wants to serve on " a nice boat out of Califof- nia. We know thot he will moke good, and wish hinfi the best of luck. Four Hundred Eighty-three DALE RAIiIGH JOHNSON Dale, Q native of New York, presently spends his leaves at his home or with his nearby fiancee, Miss Dione Stevens, in Patchogue, Long Island, New York. Dale graduated from Patchogue High School as num- ber 4 of 400, which gives on indication of his accom- plishments here. He is currently attempting to obtain two majors (Physics and Electrical Science) and a minor (mathematics). Dale ' s athletic interests center around soccer. In high school, he was captain of the varsity, and also received All-County honors. He has played his favorite sport every foil while at the Acad- emy, and was elected captain of the Junior Varsity by his teammates. The Novol Flight Officer Progrom will undoubtedly claim him os a proud member, since he con see nothing else among the multitude of choices. GUY ROBERT KNIERIEM Guy comes to us from Oceanport, New Jersey, ond is known by a few as " Capn Guy. " After overcoming Plebe Year, he set about joining the academic routine and worked for a wires ma|or. Many times, he tried to conquer the electrical " magic " so he could escape on the weekends. When his eyes weren ' t on books, they were focused on his favorite music major. Guy made his stay at USNA more enjoyable by participat- ing in the Antiphonol Choir, Plebe golf, and intramur- al sports. His plans upon graduation include graduate school and eventually ships, but he hasn ' t decided whether they will be of the sea or air variety. Guy ' s devotion and hard work while at the Academy will surely help make his Navol career a success. Four Hundred Eighty-four r " " Vl. V . WV i PATRICK HUBERT LAWLESS Pot hoils from a suburb of Philly, tfiot goes by ttie name of Upper Darby. Coming straight from high school, the red head has monoged to persuade a Long Island femme to reside in Philly for awhile. After completing Plebe Year, Pot hod a lot of big numbers on his record, including a long list of dements Known for his great ability to study in the pod. Pot has mon- oged to maintain a B " overage in his moth ma|or. For the first two years at USNA, Pot was an avid sup- porter of the Marine Corps, but it seems the Long Island loss come into play again, and Pot has decided on Navy Air. If his better half ' doesn ' t change, we re sure he will be o great osset to the |et force. JAMES CALDER LiNVlUE, JR. A Navy Junior, Jim hailed from Newport, Rhode Island. Plebe year was not exactly his idea of fresh- man life, but dedication paid off, and with the advent of Youngster year, things began to hoppen in a big way. Newly christened The Snake, he was a charter member of the Hose and Nose Society, " and found himself on the way to bigger and better things - Well, I guess that Cathy wos bigger and better than Pom. In any event, she too lost out, and our illustrious hero continued to break hearts and doors on his way to becoming on Officer and o Gentleman. The son of a Boot Driver, " Jim has his eye on Navy Line. He always said that Line officers have a better chance of becoming C.N.O. - maybe even President. DENNIS MICHAEL LUNGHOFER Dennis come to the Academy from Zonesville, Ohio. Being from a military family, Dennis had a head start on Plebe yeor, and the military establishment. During Plebe year, he excelled both academically and athleti- cally on the trock as one of the hurdlers for the plebe team During youngster year. Lungs ' gave up hopes of a varsity track career to concentrate on his Aero ma|or. As a second class, athletics crept bock into his blood via the 150 pound footboll team, en|oying many hunger poms and long hours in the steam room. During his lost year, Dennis concentrated on saving his strength for throwing his hot June Week, ond for the day he heads for Pensocola in search of his NFO wings. i . KEITH JOSEPH McCORMICK After a fine wrestling career at Southwest High School in St. Louis, Mac loter pursued the two mojor sports of swimming and drinking. His business interests in Anheuser-Busch products sustained him through Plebe yeor, ond he was o member of the famous greose- |ob teom on Youngster Cruise. Besides being o tennis sfondout, he was on octive member of the fieldball, boxing, rugby, ond restriction teom. He hod o knack for finding en|oyment in olmost everything - even in restricting for his active porticipafion in the Second Class Pep Rally of ' 68, and spent the time between musters wrestling with the Plebes. However, his spir- its got so high, that he was corned to the finol two musters. Atoc ' s congenial nature will ossure him friends and success in the years aheod. PATRICK ANDREW MdAUGHLIN Pot colls Los Angeles home, even though he is more ot home on the woter An ardent surfer. Pot soon discov- ered the only woves he would ride in the Chesapeake were on o YP He has become well known in both the ocodemic and executive deportments through his many endeavors He soon distinguished himself as a member of the famed Zoo, and was odmired by members of the |et-set from New London to Pensoco- la. On the othlefic field, Mac " was a terror. After o brief stint on the varsity football team, he settled down to ISO ' s and a not too steady diet of fruit and Ex-Lax. After graduation, Pot plans to hit the fleet offer stay at Pensacolo to gain his wings. Four Hundred Eighty-five JOHN BENARD NATHMAN Hailing from Texas, John came to Navy from an Air Force family. Known for tiis ability to snow any girls mom, John spent many on ofternoon reading his fan letters from them. John spent much of Plebe Year em- ployeci by the " Arab " in his Oasis delicatessen. All wasn ' t fun and games for John at USNA, as he planned how to " pull it out " on finals. At this, he was very successful, weoring stars every semester. As of late, he has become known as the Picasso of the Grand Prix, plastering many a painting on his wall. Between showing girls his etchings, racing his motor- cycle, and dreaming of his Corvette, John has found time to play golf and basketball. J. B. should be a great asset in his chosen career of Naval Aviation. THOMAS FRANCIS NOONAN Dubuque, Iowa gave up one of her favorite sons when she sent Tom to USNA. After on enlightening Plebe Year, Tom overcome with charity for his fellowman, dedicated his waking hours (as few as they were) to helping the floundering fourth classmen on their way - up and down the passageway every night around 6 p.m. Besides handling a football or a basketball well, Tom was pretty good with a pistol, winning an " N, " and becoming captain of the team. A varsity sub- squoder for three years, he narrowly missed being named captain of that team by passing his underwat- er swim. Tom hopes to go into aviation, even though we feel that he ' s got more in common with submar- ines. We know that he ' ll be a credit to the Navy wher- ever he goes. CHARLES ALLEN PARLIER, II Charles, known to everyone as Cop, is a proud resi- dent of San Mateo, California, where he was a high school All-Amencan swimmer. Upon arriving at USNA, Cap promptly moved from civilian life into the main stream of the Brigade. While here. Cop has followed three main pursuits; getting his N-stor, educating ev- eryone as to the greatness of the Marine Corps and California, and spending much time in a little red VW with a certain girl from Son Mateo. Cap will be re- membered by us all for his many trips to the Main Office Youngster year, his ' hair cut " for Army, his business, and above all, for the good notured way he accepted our jokes about the Corps. To the Marine, we wish the best of luck in the future. CHARLES DARRELL POHER Chuck came to USNA after groduoting from Venice High School in Los Angeles, where he excelled in base- ball and golf. Never one to become too buried in one field of endeavor. Chuck ' s activities have been both varied and valuable. He wos a member of the Scuba Club and the Public Relations Club while at Navy, and became one of the Brigade ' s best squash players. His academic courses have covered a variety of fields, but hove finally centered on Novel Architecture. Chuck, al- ways interested in cars and sports, quorterbocked the lightweight football team and tried to keep his own car running. Chuck plans a future in Naval Aviation as jet jockey, and if all goes right, a career with NASA in their space program. GEORGE EMERY SAUER, III George, better known to all of us as " Big George, " come to us from Richmond, Indiana. Most of George ' s time, was spent with pencil in hand working to ob- tain a " B " overage towards his mathematics major. As time went on, he found new endeavors to make life at the Naval Academy more than just studies. George was active in squash and basketball, both on company and battalion levels, where he helped obtain Brigade championships in both sports. It is also note- worthy to mention he was a member of the famed " White Knights Plus One " round-ball team. As a sing- er, he spent three years traveling throughout the United States with the Naval Academy Glee Club and Chapel Choir. Upon graduation, George hopes to add a pair of wings to his wardrobe. four Hundred fighty-six mI(! THEODORE SHEFFER WOLFE Ted came to us from Fremont, Ohio, even though he knew first hand of the hardships of Academy life, being the third member of his fomily to ottend a serv- ice ocademy. He immediately began to leove his mark on the Academy, not only in acodemics, but in athlet- ics OS well. The reoson his ocodemic marks never soored, was thot grades for woodworking and shop were not an input into a midshipman ' s QPR, On the other hand Ted ' s athletic endeavors were known throughout the Brigade. It is noteworthy to mention at this time that he, with his orbital shot, was also a member of the fam ed ' White Knights plus One " round-boll team. In the future, Ted hopes to find him- self in the wardroom of some California based DE. CHARLES BRUCE YOUNG Charlie arrived from the booming metropolis of Greenwood, South Carolina, following a year detour at Lander College. During Second Class year Charlie started using his weekends more constructively thon ever before. A |unior high teacher in Annapolis occu- pied most of his time. If you ever wonted Charlie on the weekend, your best bet was to try her apartment or the blue Cougar. Charlie spent o lot of time on the intromurol fields with soccer, football, ond softboll. He has starred many times on the academic field. He has been on the Superintendent ' s List frequently, but his pad has never been lonesome. An avid supporter of " USC, " Charlie is undecided what his service selec- tion will be. Whether its subs or Line, he will be o welcome addition to the navy. JAMES JOSEPH ZABOROWSKI " Zobs " hails from the city of Brotherly Love, where his long-legged strides carried him from the Judge High School track to the passageways of Mother B " J. J. ' s 6 ' 4 " , 160 lb. frame was ideally suited for that lost long reach to place the traditional cop on Hern- don Monument, which, occording to legend, ordains him to be the first odmirol in our class. This, however, did not guarantee him on easy rood to the top, the hurdles coming hord and high in the form of long green tobies. " Though he didn ' t star as on athlete, he turned in consistently outstanding performances as o liberty hound " After graduation, Zobs hopes to pick up pair of gold wings on his way to his prophesied flog rank.

Jim, from nearby Cheverty, Maryland, has always wanted to graduate from USNA, and fios sometimes wondered if fie would, ffe is one of tfiose unfortunate people who gets home 30 minutes after leave com- mences, and never comes back before the last minute. This great devotion to liberty is exceeded only by his unprecedented devotion to the pad. With many long hours of study, Jim has excelled in academics, man- aging to keep his average above 2.0 most of the time. His academic endeavors hove not kept him from the boathouse or from eating, as he is known to many as the " fat 150 " on our lightweight crew team. Jim is also noted for his run-in with the famed " sponge- man " of Philadelphia. Jim ' s way with women and his adventuring spirit should insure his success as o Naval Aviator. WILLIAM FRANCIS BRODERICK Graduating in the top fen of his high school class. Bill came to the Academy determined to live up to his high standards. Bills motto " in gouge we trust " is true in form to his plug and chug, crank it out style. Although hailing from the " Lone Star State, " Bill has yet to attain his goal of becoming a true Texan, and is still working to match up his set of wings. Being an original zoo boy, Bill is known for his smooth, sophis- ticated techniques with women. A living manifesta- tion of social grace. Bill has displayed his refined cul- ture to a host of girls who won ' t ever forget him. His carefree, eosy going nature has brought him wide- spread acclaim from his professors and has enhanced his standing with company officers. Bill ' s success on the football field is matched only by his success with the Executive Department, earning a varsity letter from both. Bill ' s evening activities find him dodging in and out of rooms searching for food or the good gouge. Despite two fine summer cruises with the Navy, Bill has decided to don Marine green. With that natural ability to think quickly on his feet. Bill should follow in the Corps ' long tradition of fine officers. STEVEN ELLIOT CHAPMAN Leaving the soft life behind in Pelhom, New York, " Steven the Innocent " found no problems in moking the transition from Mother Chapman to Mother Ban- croft. Steve ' s flaming red hair, surpassed only by his floming lovelife, coupled with his innocent look of youth immediately earned him the name of his hero. Howdy Doody. Forming the other half of that dynam- ic duo, the Bobsey Twins, Steve and his accomplices have managed to keep the company entertained. His superlative physique complemented by his youthful appearance is a welcome change to the girls he dates. Since Steve has hedged on any last minute rush choice of service selection, we can only speculate that his born-killer qualities will lead him to the animal attraction of the Corps - Peace Corps thot is. Four Hundred Ninety 5 %• yt t TIMOTHY ROBERT COCOZZA Tim entered the Naval Academy with St. Joseph ' s Prep and Columbia Prep behind him. Coming from Cinna- minson, New Jersey, his impressive athletic record that won him fome in high school and prep school followed him to Navy, and Tim soon found himself a regulor starter for the class of 1969s Plebe football team. Unfortunately, Tim fell into academic difficulty, and the Board ' decided to poss him over for first class. After entering the doss of 1970 in the fall of 1968, he found new friends in a new company. He has since earned recognition as Navy ' s first-string field goo! kicker on the Varsity team, but insists that after playing here, his football career is over. His success on the gridiron is amplified by his amiable personality and easy-going sense of humor, which will be sure to follow him throughout his career. PHILIP DAVID ESLINGER Leaving the tiresome routine of fraternity life at Kan- sas University, Phil came to the Academy determined to fulfill his role as the playboy man on campus. Farming one-half of the famed Bobsey Twins, " Phil and his a ccomplices have kept the executive depart- ment on its toes with their pranks. Never one to let good study time go to waste, Phil applied himself to the task of reoding every science fiction book single- hondedly. Not stopping with this, Phil went on an undaunted crusade to become the excused squad commander, and the Second Bott haircut rep. Phil also applied himself to athletics with the some unher- alded devotion, passing many afternoon hours in the pad. After graduation, Phil will be able to thaw out to become the great lover we all know him to be, ond in view of his successful cor accidents, become o Navy test pilot DENNIS MICHAEL FIORDALISO From Italy, the home of great lovers, comes Denny, El Desperodo, ' whose ability to handle martinis as smoothly as he handles women, labels him not only OS a natural " for the Hop Committee, but as o con- noisseur of elite entertainme nt as well. Just as fluid in the use of languages (especially English), Fiord " is destined to become the self-appointed poet-laureate of the Navy, and somehow, owing to his deep aca- demic perseverance, he never foils to let his opinions be heord, even as far up the line os lieutenant and ad- miral. Surface ships will hold the future for Dennis Michoel Fiordaliso, and should hardly prove a chal- lenge for man who has gained so much experience as leading member of the Plebe Detail. RONALD MAXWELL HILL Ron followed his fathers footsteps into the Academy from St. Louis. But he doesn t plan to follow them oil the way into destroyers. Academics never posed ony real challenge to rocky " He was probably number two in the Brigade in total time occumulated in the rock. However, he still managed to keep his grades obove 3.0 Ron experienced a sharp conflict of inter- ests, but handled himself well. He was torn between the boathouse, where he rowed light-weight crew, and Lou ' s, ■ where he looked at the world through frosted glass. His successes at the Academy ore only a preview of the success he should find after gradua- tion. Although he colls himself more of a fighter than lover, little friend in St. Louis will probably find her way into his future before too long. GORDON RALPH JACKSON The Marine Corps has hod many academic whips in- corporated OS Its leaders of tomorrow, and Gordy is no exception to the rule. Hailing from Connecticut, Gordy remains devoted to the aspirations of his par- ents (both Marine in their day) by his qualification as registered Panamanian |ungle boy " Gordy brought along with him from Connecticut to Mary- land lovely young blonde named Barbara. Gordy is often overwhelmed by compassion and sympathy in his hours of dire needy by her. It is rumored that there is something serious " between these two, but hove no fear thot Gordy will remoin hard ond stead- fast, and that he will eventually live through this caper (singing the Marine Corps Hymn) as he hos done so many times before. MARK ANTHONY KANE Mark come to the Academy from West Genesee Con- trol High School and Warners, New York. With a background of high school athletics, lettering in wres- tling, football, and lacrosse, and outstanding academ- ics, mark was not to be denied at USNA. After the ini- tial shock of Plebe Yeor was over, Mark s quick wit and tremendous personolity came to the surface and mode him one of the best liked and respected mem- bers of his class. Specializing in wrestling at Navy, Mark has been on outstanding motmon for Coach Perry, hauling down the Eastern Heavyweight Crown his Third Class Year, His high intellectual capacity coupled with a natural leadership ability and a deep sense of responsibility will stand Mark in good stead throughout his Novel Career. Four Hundred Ninely-one ROBERT PETER MILLER Bob halls from Norristown, Pennsylvania, that roaring mefropclis, outside of Pfiilodelphia, famous for Schmidts beer. When he is not accumulating hours in the sack or writing to his O.A.O., he can usually be found at Hubbard Hall applying his passions to the end of an oor as a member of the lightweight varsity crew team. The strenuous academic program has never posed too great an obstacle between Bob and his pad. Never having seen the clock strike 11:00 on any given week night, he has still managed to main- tain a 3.00 average m his management minor, with an occasional semester on the Superintendent ' s List. Upon graduation, Rip intends to continue the hard work in Pensacola learning to drive P-3 ' s, allowing himself maximum time for the " 0 " clubs and Char- lotte. DONALD JENNINGS MONROE Hailing from Louisiana bayou country, " Swamp Rat Monroe " is known by most of his classmates as " Dee Jay. " Like the perfect Gyrene that he is, Don is shy of water, whether it is his 400 yard swim or a simple shower. But, D. J. remaining undaunted and undisci- plined by Navy, remains true to his aspirations for " Grunt " life, and will never say " die, " although " kill " IS very prominent in his vocabulary. Just recently, D. J. has become the solitary member of the Voodoo Church Party (It seems that since Don became a math major, he has had to develope an overpowering belief in magic!!!) Undoubtedly, the post-graduation scene will find Don in Morine green, ground-pounding his way through |ungle with his hair waving like a red flag for every enemy within ten miles. WILLIAM KEELER REED And then there is William K. Reed, alias William K. Reed, that shy, undercover man who hails from Brooklyn ' s South Side. Unbeknownst to many with whom he comes m contact. Bill is the horborer of good taste in coffee beans and brings credence to that age-old belief that blonds really do have more fun " especially when their escort is this silent but sincere man-obout-town. Aside from his clandestine mo- ments OS connoisseur of good music. Bill remains loyal to that classic ideal of a sound mind and body. Scuba fins and ski poles don ' t usually blend very well together, but Bill manages to moke endeavors in both of these areas of athletic challenge. Also true to the adventurous heritage of the American mole is Bill ' s devotion to the sciences. There is very little doubt that if Bill hod been born but a few years earlier, he and not Thomas A. Edison would have invented the light bulb. And yet, there is a determination in this sub- mariner-to-be which is far superior to the mere intel- lectual. There is that desire which will moke him as high in the eyes of the rest of the Navy as he is in our eyes, for after all, few Plebes were as well exper- ienced in taking orders as this young charger. And for his reoson also, very few others will ever qualify for he levels of achievement which are destined for Wil- liam K. Reed. FRANK WILLIAM REIFSNYDER Hailing from the great seafaring state of Illinois, Frank worked his way up the ladder of success to fame and fortune as a midshipman. Affectionately known as the " curve-wrecker, " Frank obtained the highest level of academic endeovor. His greying hair and frequent appearances at the library misled fellow midshipmen to believe he was the student librarian. Loved by all for his generosity, Frank reputedly coined the phrase, " I ' ll fly, if you buy. " Frank will give up the many benefits of bachelorhood this June to explore the |oys of marital bIbS. Then following the long line of officers choosing the Silent Service, Frank will com- bine his All-American charm and wit to add a cynical flavor to the sub force. ' CARTER DOW SAVAGE " Buzz, " shortest man in the Brigade, gamed quite a reputation among the class of 1972 by his perform- ance OS the " little general " during the Plebe detail. Carrying over his leadership qualities propounded in Westminster, California, Buzz continues to rank in the upper percentile of his class. But all work and no play has never been a virtue of this " Hercules " among men, despite many hours of meditation hanging from the rings. Even within the company area, he con be seen leaping and bounding around, exhibiting the more unconventional moves of gymnastics. Likewise, when Buzz graduates and finds himself somewhere beneath the ocean in his Polaris Submarine, his mem- ory will be leaping and bounding as he recalls with a grin the time on Youngster Cruise that he tried to drink Hawaii dry. Four Hundred Ninety-two •T 1 ., RICHARD CURZON SEAMAN Rick come to the hallowed halls of Navy from tfie thriving metropolis of Blair, Nebraska, and a well spent year at the University of Nebraska. His unfailing wit and personality made him quite a few friends and a reputation as a guy that would do just obout any- thing for a laugh. Rick spent his othletic hours helping the company and battalion in their striving for excel- lence on the field of glory. In his second class year, his family moved to Annapolis ond many of Ricks class- motes got taste of that good home cooking and re- laxation on Saturday afternoons. With Rick ' s affinity for good times and many friends, he will certainly have no trouble making the grode when he goes sail- ing into the setting sun on his destroyer. GREGG FREDERICK SESSLER Gregg came to the Naval Academy fresh out of Mil- ford High School from the thriving metropolis of Am- herst, New Hampshire. The oldest of four children, Gregg set out immediately to moke his mark on the Academy and as early os Plebe summer, he was rec- ognized for his ability to give 100 percent of himself in all he did. The end of Plebe year found Gregg high in both aptitude and grades, both of which he main- tained for his four year stay at Navy . He hod the sole pleosure of instructing the doss of 72 during the Jot- ter ' s Plebe summer. Gregg s instant smile ond eoger- ness to help has earned him many lasting friends and after groduation, the nuclear fleet will be very fortu- nate to welcome Gregg as one of their numbers. ROBERT BENNEH THOMPSON Bob came to the Naval Acodemy from Gory, Indiana, and the shores of Lake Michigan. Early in life Bob showed on interest in water sports, and he became o very able small boot sailor. This continued once he ar- rived in Annopolis, ond he wos a member of the Soil- ing Squodron all four yeors, being selected to race to Newport, Bermuda, and Irelond in competition. Bob enjoyed his stoy in Bermuda and Ireland, doing all he could to brooden his knowledge of the country and the local girls. Bob s easygoing manner ond little red MGTD will moke him popular wherever he goes. The summer of 1970 will see him heading for sunny Pen- socolo and the VP Novy. Four Hurxjred Ninety-three FRANK BERNARD WAHL The room of Frank B. Wahl con easily be identified by tfie loud sound of Victory at Sea. When not display- ing himself as a permanent ornament on his bed, Frank can be found pursuing one of his many inter- ests, whether they be fine women, drink, or merri- ment on his YP. Going into the railroad business, Frank single-handedly built the Bancroft and Chesa- peake Railroad, and amid thousands of pictures of battleships, he has become curator of the East Branch of the Naval Academy Museum. Affectionately known OS " Sir Dauntless Bulkhead, " Frank hails from the Navy town of San Diego. Never fearing to volunteer, he was amazed by the generosity of his classmates as they stepped aside and let him take command. The future holds surface line in store for Frank, and, as his ship sails into the sunset, we see Frank pacing th( bridge calmly whistling " Anchor ' s Aweigh. ' WILLIAM FRANCIS WEBB Bill came to the Naval Academy from Williomstown, Kentucky and Williamstown ' s Central High School. Bill says that his high school also doubled as the grocery store, post office, and blacksmith ' s shop, but actually, everybody knows that Williomstown doesn ' t hove a blacksmith. The rigors of being a Plebe were not enough to keep Bill busy, and he threw himself at the academic program with great vigor, eyeing the covet- ed Rhodes Scholarship program with more than a keen interest. Intelligence and hard work have brought this scholarly feat within his grasp. William F. Webb has led on exemplary life at the Academy and it would be well worth it for any and all to fol- low in his footsteps. Whichever selection Bill decides to lend his services to, it is a certainty that that branch will be much better for it. PAUL ANTHONY ZAMBERNARDI Hailing from North Quincy, Massachusetts, and a product of North Quincy High School, " Z, " as he is af- fectionately known by his friends, come to USNA via Bordentown Military Institute, where he prepped for a year, and was a standout in football. In addition to his football prowess, Paul was also quite a stalwart with the hockey stick in high school. " Z " was always an asset to the company, whether it was in the area of intromurols, company projects, or just plain hors- ing around, possessed with a continual worm person- ality and sense of humor, he was always popular with those around him. Paul ' s future is occupied with wed- ding bells and Navy Air. We ' re all sure that he will be on asset to both the Husband Corps and the Navy. four Hundred Ninety-four " . V ' % ' K.

" ■TrVV- - ' .-■ ' : ' ■ ' ' ' ■ ( four Hundred Ninety-si) MAnHEW JOHN BREEDE Matt came to us from a town well known to oil who read Generol Food labels - White Ploins, New York. Very reserved ot the beginning of Plebe year, he soon became a standout among his clossmotes as one of a group who could hove been called the Noive Few. " Since then, he has goined much knowledge and expe- rience through nightly instructional sessions ond weekend field trips, ond has |ust recently gained fame OS Lightnin. ' Perhaps he owes his success to his membership in the Nutroment-for-lunch-bunch, or perhops it is his non-reg hair and sideburns which keep him right in step with the jet set. Whatever it is, Matt ' s there ond he will stay there when he pocks up his hair clippers and moves into the big bod world of ships ond planes. LARRY EVEREn CLEGHORN Foggy, " as Lorry wos known by his clossmotes moinly due to his stote of mind on Sunday nights, will olwoys be a port of us. His sense of humor hos been ever prevalent in our midst. Coming from o hick town in Michigon, Lorry soon picked up the facts of life. The Aero Department reodily interfered with his fovorite postime, the pod. Corburator Cleghorn wos one of the first to learn about finonciol management. His alert mind overcome most difficulties imposed on him though. Lorry was olwoys willing to try something new and took on any challenge with spirit and vigor. His outgoing personolity made him very fun to know. Larry has Pensocolo in his sights, and plans to fly F-4 ' s. With his enthusiasm, he should have no trouble. THOMAS COUNIHAN A native of Loke Worth, Florida, Tom orrived fresh from high school at the gray walls of USNA, During Plebe year, Tom wos active in football and track, but then he got too big to get over the high |ump bor. During the next three years, if anyone ever wanted to find Tom ot night, he could olwoys be found in either Smoke Hall or the wardroom. Even with his mony hours logged in front of the tube, Tom managed to stoy short step in from of the academic deportment. Tom wos one of the few to leave USNA as innocent os he come, thanks to his devotion to his fioncee bock home After graduation, Tom hopes to return to Flori- da to fly and be married. Because Tom is so dedicot- ed, he will be o welcome addition to Navy Air. Four Hundred Ninety-seven ' - •1 ■ i . i ' -f S t t- MARTIN EDWARD DOYLE, JR. Staggering into USNA from Suds-bury, Massachusetts, Marty, o true teeny-bopper became a member of the generation gap. A golfer at heart, though seldom seen on the golf course, Marty ' s true spirits could be found within his golf bag, a permanent fixture in his closet. Marty avoided study like the plague, but always seemed to pull it out of his , , golf bog. Despite his youth, this little Irishman ' s " experiences vastly out- numbered those of the oldest. Wherever there was a good time, ' there was Marty His |ovial personality did much to maintain the company morale. Marty s natural athletic ability was a true asset to company sports. Years may odd to his age, but at heart, Marty will remain young. Along with desire and omibition, Marty will bring his good nature and warm personali- ty into Navy Air. CLYDE JAMES IHRIG Clyde was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Seattle, Washington. However, he now resides in Son Jose, California. Through his years at the Academy. Clyde has developed a reputotion as being a man about town. Although several people felt that Clyde would probably not be with the Brigade as a result of a small party in his room one hot August night during second class summer, Clyde seemed to learn quite a lesson after a considerable period of restriction. An intense adherence to regulations managed to pull Clyde through second doss year. Clyde ' s ma|or inter- ests ore in working with the Brigade Honor Board, being selected for the Nuclear Power Program, and marrying his hometown sweetheart shortly after graduation. JEFFREY JOHN KRSTICH Stitch, " one of the greatest guys the world ever saw, will long be remembered as the one who demolished wall at Pensacolo. Never a true ruffian, however, he maintained a noble heart, and was always willing to put down his studies to listen to a friend ' s troubles. (In fact, he almost listened himself right to the Aca- demic Board.) If it was moth help you needed, you did not go to Jeff. Yet, help in other fields he was quite capable of supplying, as he often did. If one sought to describe Jeff Krstich, he might soy . . . when he cored about something, he cored deeply. " Jeff, a great skier, scuba diver, and all-around ath- lete, hopes to return to his demolished wall after graduation, and earn his wings of gold. Four Hundred Ninety-eight . ' " 1 fe . , " V " .. ' ■- MARK EDWIN LAMB From Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia. The Huey " come with a strong cietermination for a Naval career. During Plebe year, Mork learneci to excel at many things onci became a top notch look- out. At the end of Plebe year, Mark ron into some trouble with Youngsters, and went info hiding at the hospital, and was rarely seen again. After Plebe year. The Phantom left Annapolis, and Mark settled down to some serious cracking. Although he was never known as the idea man, he was usually the driving force behind most of our activities, and was often known as the engine that pulled the tram. Mark be- come chief cook and channel changer second class year, while still keeping up his duties as |ust a rom- bler. Using the many skills learned at the Academy, Mark should moke a good officer at whatever he chooses. WILLIAM JEFFRIES LEWIS W. Jeff " Lewis come to the Naval Academy in the summer of 1966. Son of Colonel and Mrs. W. W. Lewis, Jeff come from a brilliant background in high school. As service junior, he noturolly traveled to for ports of the globe, finally settling down in Alexandria, Virginia, where he managed to moke a name for him- self. His sterling achievements did not go unnoticed. Jeff received many scholorships to such well known schools OS the University of Pennsylvania. However, Jeff wos over|oyed at his appointment to the Acode- my. It was like a dream come true to the now out- standing midshipman His course of study is mechani- cal engineering, one of the most difficult sub|ects taught at the Academy. Also, he is a lettermon on the Navy Crew. On top of oil this, Jeff has found time to dote some of the most beautiful girls at the Academy, His service selection is Marine Corps, but I ' m sure he would excel in ony branch of the service. Good Luck Jeffi THOMAS MICHAEL MARSILIO The Con-Do Kid hailing from Pennsylvanios all- Americon Hozleton, came to USNA with stars in his eyes. Tom s persistent academic endeavors won him instont recognition as one of the perennial sloshes of the company. His devotion to studying led to o per- manent hobitotion of the library, returning to his room only long enough to mointoin legal residence in Boncroft. Professionalism never overwhelmed him, as Tom managed to keep aloof from the more technical aspects of cruise ond pro-lectures. Toms quiet " image was belied by his taste for floshy foshion styles, and his unique sense of humor, whicli unfortu- nately (?) was known only to those closest to him. Tom took pride in his humorous anecdotes, ond in his ability OS baseball historian. If Tom pro|ects his academic enthusiasm into his post-graduation en- deavors, he will surely succeed in ony field. MICHAEL PATRICK McGAHAN After one year ot Belmont Abbey College, Pat come to USNA with all the motivation necessary to do an out- standing |ob, and that he did. Possessing a willing- ness to help anyone, anywhere, anytime, Moc soon became popular with everyone. We never met o mon that didn ' t like Pot. Even the Duke took a liking to Pat and spooned him almost immediately Plebe yeor. Sec- ond class year, he assumed the duties of Class Presi- dent Few of us will forget Pot s confrontation with the Executive Department to answer to them for a certain protest demonstration. (They con t fry us all, can they ' ) As compony Honor Rep and Class Presi- dent, Pot spent countless hours in the smoke-filled room upstoirs, os a member of the Brigade Honor Board. Despite this, however, he frequented the Su- perintendent s List, thanks to the many oll-nighters he pulled. A true asset to ony branch of the service with his zealous desire to excel. Pot will be o voluable ad- dition to Nuclear Submarines. CARL JOSEPH LOGUIDICE Corl came to the Acodemy after two years at Boston College. Full of high ideals and principles the system eventually brought him down to the level of everyone else. During his six years of undergroduote work, Butch has been in every field except nursing. Con- tinuing this success story, he is toking the Marine op- tion upon graduation. This decision is more fhon likely prompted by his reoction to water, similor to thot of rock. Carls ability in the pool earned him the distinction of coptoin of the squad in his second class year Carl will be remembered for many things by those who knew him, his contributions to the honor concept, his selflessness in helping out a classmate, and his uncanny ability to settle arguments. WILLIAM JALMER PATRICK MELBY William Jalmer Potrick Melby, called Melbs by oil, left sunny California for the blistery shores of the Sev- ern to complain for four years of parodise lost. Ma- rine green in his eyes and adventure m his soul, Melbs never seemed to let academy policies confine his free- dom, for conformity was not his mode. Excelling in his field of Foreign Affairs, Bill mode use of his diplo- matic abilities to negotiote settlements in his never ending bottle with the science department. Come Youngster year. Bill eorned his Navy N In restriction for one of his more adventurous Soturdoy night cam- paigns. For those who know Melbs, he is a trusted, loyal friend who approaches life with o great deol of energy and vigor. Melbs looks forward to June, ond getting into the world to moke his mark He will cer- tainly uphold the proud tradition of the Marine Corps, ond become on outstanding officer. four Hundred Nincty-nine FRANK ALLEN NUSOM, JR. Nus " arrived at Annapolis from sunny Pensacola with two possessions, a wet suit and a portable bar. Al s two great loves were first the water, which he proved by trying to drown himself in the shower every morning, and secondly, girls. Being uncommon- ly lucky in his second love, Al generally managed to hove two or three one-and-onlies at a time, a practice which he often regretted. Al ' s leadership abilities were superseded only by his thirst. Often were the days when he would make a booze run having just led his men to restriction muster. Despite these inter- ests, however, Al still managed to keep himself academically respectable, while tutoring most of his classmates as a side-line. Al will always be remem- bered by his classmates as a great guy, and one of the most motivated men to be found. Al hopes that someday he will be the first Admiral in the SEAL teams. JAMES MICHAEL O ' DELL Coming to the Academy from the town of Beaumont, Texas, where he spent most of his time duck hunting, Mike was a typical Texan hayseed. Four years of ex- posure to the bright lights and big cities have vostly chonged the picture. Plebe yeor saw him, with some difficulty, lose his drawl, which even now appears in occosionol relapses. Mike ' s refined southern charm has mode it easy for him to come up with a date ony- time and anywhere. Never one to miss a good party, he usually finished first in the three A.M. races from the Maryland Inn to Bancroft Hall, due to on unex- pected bed check. In the near future, Mike will settle down in the dusty plains of Texas with his Vette and girl from back home. His thoughtfulness and good nature will insure him a happy and successful future. STEPHEN JOSEPH SHEA, III Being a Navy Junior, Steve brought his many experi- ences to the Academy to settle down. But, ofter a quiet Plebe year, Steve finally came around and saw the better things in life, becoming a rambler and even receiving the " Iron Man " trophy second class year. Steve was always coming up with many wonderful ideas to moke the years more en|oyable. He could be counted on for many humorous moments at " Steve ' s Corner, " when he would pass on to others only facts he knew from his broad travels. Steve always said how lucky he was to be in aero-spoce, because he couldn ' t read well. And he wants to fly? He could hove the lost lough when he drags the anchor up to graduation with him. With his good nature and great knowledge, Steve will find success wherever he goes. HOWARD ARTHUR SKINNER An Army Brat " hailing from Long Beach, California, Howard made his first cruise (before he was a year old) to Tokyo, Japan, and has since traveled widely throughout the country. This early start on o sea- faring life, coupled with a stmt in Army ROTC made the Naval Academy the natural choice to further his interests. While at the Academy, Howard ' s primary interests were history and the girl bock home. Study hours nearly always found him studying or writing letters. During his upper-class years, the Academic and Executive Departments posed no serious threats to his ability or ingenuity. We all wish Howard the best of luck in the surface Navy, and hope he con- tinually finds smooth seas and following winds. ROBERT EUGENE SONNENBERG, JR. Sonny |oined the group after spending a year at Mis- souri, where he learned enough about life to carry him through and above the games of Plebe year. Al- ways capable of finding the good times. Bob also managed to spend enough time studying and being " reg " to outlast o few roommates along the way. His ability to keep his head and remain cool throughout practically any situation, while being attributed by some to the " altitude " of his head above the rest of his body, is due mainly to his eorly-ochieved maturity and insight. The " Neck " never got caught up in the pettiness of Bancroft life, but took a sincere interest in the motivation of his peers and |uniors towards realistic goals. In all. Sonny has given much to his as- sociates, in everything from expert barber services to meaningful advice. But above all. Sonny will be re- membered as one of a very rare group - a true friend. f; »i t iy.llis liete- JOSEPH FRANCIS STARTARI Jodi reported to the Naval Academy from the smoll town of Bloirsville, Pennsylvania, bringing with him o tremendous omount of enthusiasm, outstonding abili- ties, and guitar. During his four years at the Acade- my, he hos mode far more friendships than he could possibly count. Seeing his always smiling, happy- go-lucky personality, it ' s hord not to odmire him and smile to yourself. Never o lock for dates, Jodi " usu- ally serves as a date service for holf the Brigade. As a physics major, Jodi has never hod any trouble with the acodemic deportments. His othletic ability will never be disputed. He has a greet love for competition and has been one of Navy ' s finest halfbacks. Jodi ' s ' lovable personality and keen sense of humor ore sure to make him a success in any endeovor, and without Q doubt, the Novy will greatly benefit by his presence. RICHARD ELLIOn WESTCOn Coming from the sunny beothes of Colifornia, Rich soon lost his tan. Enjoying good " sounds, " skiing, ond on argument, " Westy " could usually be seen making his woy toward the holl to be lulled to sleep. Academ- ics did not pose too much of a problem, much to the dismay of his classmates. Ploying football in high school. Rick decided to switch to lightweight crew at Navy, earning his Varsity N ' Youngster year Along with the other masochists on the squad, he saw mony miles of the Severn. A connoisseur of scotch, Rick hos enjoyed his many interludes at 0-Clubs. Rick is plan- ning to go Nuclear Power upon graduotion and should moke on excellent submariner. TOM STEPHEN ZYSK Tom, nofive of Stratford, Connecticut, transferred to our company in the midst of Plebe summer After struggling olong with all of us past the days of chow call and come around, he burst upon Youngster yeor with the energies and smiles of a super-mid. Often were the doys thot Tom roared post Annapolis city limits in quest of wine, women and gos money. Not quite the pauper he might seem, he was generolly oble to keep up in the world as o smart dresser and lover of the soul generation As o leoder of the Bon- croft Holl Polish Power Chapter, Tom monaged to re- main pain in most of our sides. Never a true slosh with the books, Tom does hove an inhumon desire to strive for knowledge and perfection, and will un- doubtedly be fine officer in the fleet. five Hundred Ore SECOND CLASS LEFT TO RIGHT FROM BACK ROW: Don Olsen, Bruce Nichols, Harry SheffielcJ, Steve Brighton, Pete Flannery, Bob Anderson, Bill Brown, Fred Nelson, Tom Wiles, John Seil, Bob Stillwell, Tim Pobrovolny, Cass Young, Fin Foster, Charley Quinlan, Loren Shim, Paul Smith, Mike Bilecky, John Scott, Jack Frost, Jim Lynn, Wally Poleshai, Lynn Walton, Mike Scherr, Bill Butler, John Sattler, Bill Hoo- ver, Rich Crouch.

Fi»e Hundred Three DOUGLAS MARSH BOND Doug came to the Naval Academy after a successful year at U. C. ot Davis and an unsuccessful run on a California ski slope. Ordinarily, Plebe year could not be attempted W h a mending ankle, but the Bond knew how, and the instinctive dedication of a Navy |unior made the difference. A tour on the Deans List and the title of El Supremo " on the handball courts not being enough, Doug managed to amaze his fellow mids and weekend drags with his wide smile, the Bondero charm and an uncanny knack for graphology. The weekends found Doug listening to Jane Morgon and Sandy Nelson records or shaking his body to the Admiralty or the Spiffies in Smoke Hall. Never one to take the easy road, a Navy Line career with CEC potential is Doug ' s choice with success o sure thing. WILLIAM ROBERT BUTLER A Navy |unior. Bill claims New Hampshire as home, though he has spent little time there. He traveled much before reporting to LJSNA including a trip around the world with a two year stop in India. " Butts ' came to the Academy from a small town north of Syracuse, New York. While in high school, he devoted much time to music and added his voice to the choir and Glee Club here. An overage student, he bos hod to devote much time to academics which earned him the nickname " Student, " though he pre- fers not to be referred to as one. Upon graduation. Bill intends to go into destroyers and hopes to moke the Novy a career, though he is not sure he will wont to remain beyond his obligation. THOMAS H. CAOUEn In postponing his career as a green machine for four years, Tom has graced us with his presence. Life a breath of fresh air, he brightened our progress over obstacles with his leadership. Always interested in the sporting world, lacrosse became his claim to fame. But his advancement among the females was consfderably enhanced when after a long courtship, he finally found a girl to share his hard earned sheets. Now his money is channeled along many lines, all leading to o local blonde bombshell. Tom easily crossed the lines of differences jqs he looked upward for positions of responsibility. With his level head, although shiny of late, he easily rationalized his way among many classmates. Although not exactly a bird of paradise, an S-bird is flying in his future. five Hundred Four i- - JOSEPH FRANCIS DAVOLIO When Joe broke owoy from the underworld of Youngstown, Ohio, he was taking a big step toward the collegiate life. He began his academic life in ear- nest only to fall prey to the Motown Movement. In order to keep his hoir ond personality alive, Joe- mama became a member of that old nautical group, the Admiralty Always a big sound man, this odven- ture allowed the Ytown Wop to croon away his week- ends. After several attempts with girls thinking of matrimony, he returned to his all time favorite to settle down. Now leading the life of on old man, our boy still has the personality that made him many friends at this bus stop in life. JOHN STEPHEN FEDOR The " Nose " moved from nearby Foirfox, Virginia, to a far better world at Navy. Although he did not make any academic honors, he was proclaimed All-Misery Hall for the ' 68 season. He could always be counted upon to spread the mustard when he shifted his humor into high gear. A devoted family man, John hod only one special girl that he frequented for four yeors. But, for our boy Feds, it was almost a little longer than four years as he battled the boys from the green table to a tie. A trim athlete and a hord competitor, John earned his N-star fighting for the little blue. Living in his own sound system with the other two " hos hastened the time before he moves on to his girl and growing long sideburns. PAUL LIGHTLE FOWLER Hailing from a small bordertown in Texas, Paul served as the company authority on the culture of Mexico ' s Boy s Town. Entering Navy as an Army jun- ior, he quickly adopted to the rigors of Plebe year by breaking his wrist. Taking time out from a girl ot Stanford, Paul has successfully pursued a major in Navol Engineering. As an uppercloss, Paul also earned his D. C. Wings courtesy of a local nurse. Also as a se- gundo, he distinguished his room as Form 3 city as the supervisor of the ' Plebe pro program. As a self- professed mortinent, Paul will make a worthy addi- tion to the select clique of men who follow Hyman Rickover. Duty in the Nuclear Power Progrom will also moke it possible for him to fulfill his fondest ambi- tion, surfacing on SSN in Moscow Harbor. THOMAS JAMES FOWLER Born in Woterloo, lowo, T. J. come to the Academy from no place in particular, having lived the life of a Novy junior and wandered about accordingly. Here at USNA, while trying to ovoid taking his Oceanography minor seriously, he participated in any number of company sports and earned his doss numerals on the championship 24th Compony fieldboll team. On ony given weekend, Fol could more often than not be ob- served on the prowl at mixers, in Buzzy ' s, or on Church Circle. And, on drag weekends, he wos seen more than once flying from LCDR White s off into the night, touching down at Bott (0) with seconds to spore. This porficular experience in oviotion helped Faldo moke up his mind for Navy Air, following his father into multi-engines wearing the Wings of Gold. Whether Mr. P-3 mokes it " is not open to question, for a person with such an open, cordial, and receptive personality con no help but succeed in the Naval pro- fession and in the good life. ORRIN LEIGH GROVER, III If there was one word to describe Butch, it was " or- gonizotion. ' This trait along with his relaxed monner endeared him to many on upperclassmen during his Plebe yeor. The privileges and responsibilities of the uppercloss yeors found Butch constantly on the move; whether working with the Masqueroders, helping run the Sailing Squadron, involved m the Plebe indoctrina- tion program, visiting his many friends, or busy in the endless pursuit of the gouge. With such a busy sched- ule, the only place one could count on finding Butch was in the pod, between reveille ond morning meal. A Foreign Affairs major did not limit his interests, as Butch is one of those rare individuals who con con- verse intelligently on any topic. A dedication to per- sonal ond professional ethics and the desire to succeed will enable Butch to achieve any goal he de- sires. Best of luck to one of the best of friends! GERALD FRANKLIN GUPPY Gups stumbled over his golf bog into Mother B ' s arms thot fateful summer of 66, hailing from Florido ond the Winter Pork Golf Course in particular. He ex- perienced little difficulty in the tronsifion to life in the hall, for life as a Navy |unior hod well ocquointed him with the SNAFU and Navy Woy of doing things. Aca- demics never were o problem for Jerry, (with the pos- sible exception of Super Thermo) and with o minimal amount of study between the Varsity Golf Seasons, he bounced on and off the Deon s ond Superintend- ent s Lists. Known for his smile and friendliness, as well OS his ability to gouge " and tutor those in need, Jerry was liked and admired by everyone. Given Ad- miral R s blessings, groduotion will find him packed and ready to leave for Nuclear Power School and ulti- mately the submarine fleet. 25 years from now, don ' t be surprised if Jer is a brood-striped jg still on his way up. five Hundred Five RICHARD GERARD GURNON Forsaking the ski slopes surrounding Danvers, Massa- chusetts, Rick come to USNA to seek the raucous life of a Naval Aviator. As he entered the magic world of Aero, however, he found his former flight training to be of little help. But, in spite of this (and his Bosfoni- ans unfomiliority with the Queen ' s English), ' Gums " was perpetual contender for the Superintendents List. With mayhem in his heart and blood-curdling cry, I may be light, but I ' m Wiry, " Rick terrorized field- ball and handball opponents alike. But skiing re- mained his true weakness, and before any winter leave period he could be found praying desperately for snow. For our three-stnper the future holds grad- uation, Pensocolo, a bright career, and marriage to his high school sweetheart - not necessarily m that order. DAVID TAIT HUNTER Dove, Georgia Cracker, " became the ' Gazelle " soon after arriving at Navy in the summer of ' 66 due to his wicked method of chopping in the halls. Dove ' s amazing ability to work and actually en|oy it has placed him on the Superintendent s and Dean ' s Lists every semester, although you would never guess it after hearing one or two of his rotten puns (which, incidentally, won him the title of Bennie the Dip " Youngster year). Though deeply involved with his own academics, he managed to find time to help all in need (there were many) with their work, and still host of other activities. Graduation should find Dove on his way to graduate school and ultimately Pensa- cola. The years ahead should find Dave happily settled, flying his silver bird through the skies. STEVEN EDWARD JONES, JR. Little Buck has been on industrious mid, clipping all of us for three years. He has gone his own way for the lost two years, as he now has his first love affair. Coming from a military family, he con only claim the Army as his home. We all remember old Squint pour- ing over his books - if it was one of the semesters Jackie wanted him to wear stars ogoin. Although he hod a highly acclaimed high school sports record, he found his place as 11 th man on the company basket- ball team. In spite of two false front teeth, his braces make his mouth g shining stondout. Even though not of Jewish origins, he nevertheless acquired the taste for pinching pennies as well os Italians. RONNIE LYNN JUSTISS If the doss of 1970 has an immutable force, it is Ron- nie Justiss. Hailing from a widely traveled Navy fami- ly, Ronnie earned instant fame for his meticulous disdain for speed. Plebe year held much for Trusty, for on nights when he wosn f the OOW for Wayword Woops, he was burning the midnight oil in his show- er. As an upperclass, he was |ust as active, splitting weekdays between the boats, the popper and a ma|or in D. Q., and dividing weekends between the wineskin and the Cellar Door. His crowning experience was un- doubtedly at second class Army game when his girl lost the drag bus which had their bags aboard. Carry- ing with him an intimate knowledge of Shakespeare and the Bible from his Lit ma|or, Ron will moke an excellent addition to any wardroom of the Line. OSCAR JAMES KASTEN Deciding which stones to tell from those that ore in the Log, mokes Oscar a highly publicized Midshipman. Our hot-headed hick from Herculaneum, Missouri has been engaged to the some girl for four years, in spite of his weekly ventures into other girls, bottles, and hotel rooms. Although not exactly at the top of his class in grades, aptitude, or conduct, o lot can be said for - and about - this boy. He felt obligated to up- hold his |et-set image for his last three years, when he found out he no longer hod to brace up. Our future flying party boy will soon be found with one special girl in a special trailer waiting for the word from TWA and his career in the sky THOMAS BRIAN KEEPER Deep in Philadelphia s hidden forest of concrete and brick, Tom spent his high school years slicing meat for the local delicatessen. Enthralled by tales of valor and adventure, he decided to come to the haven for flat- footed draft-dodgers here on the Severn. Deep in the dungeons of Michelson, hidden amongst the fuming test tubes and silently shrouded by the chemical haze, Tom played with the magic known only to those of the order of the BLUE ROBE. Scarred by brews and burdened with the many formulas of the supernatu- ral, he would retire to Z sville lullobied by Frank Sina- tra. Yet, he still found time to earn the name Kid- Scarpati upon Forragut Field s grassy gridirons. Tom should make on interesting addition to any branch of the Navy he chooses to terrorize. L «£. . " . JOHN WYNCOUP KIERSTED With his origins in the heart of the Gllond, " John stepped into the ranks of the blue offer a glorious yeor of stardom at Bullis Prep. In spite of his blinding speed and sure bonds, John dropped the ball some- where in his third class year. Before this, we were all soddened by the departure of John s better holf and partner in crime, the Wicks. ' Never an advocate of a skin head, he felt that a hippie life in sunny California might hove been his cup of tea The Womper ' could en|oy a tanned blonde as much as he liked demon- strating his great moves or light feet on the dance floor. His friendly nature and many friends were not enough to keep him from spending many nights at the library polishing his mentol tricks. THOMAS CHARLES KIRNER Tim came to the Naval Academy from Birmingham, Michigan, ond soon developed a strong feeling " for the Navol Academy. He spent Plebe year developing the fine art of the golden . . ., ' which he put to the fullest use as an upperclossmon. TC " was on the Cross Country team, where he recovered from the hard life of summer leave, Pensocola, Officer s Clubs, etc. He wos also on the track team, but more often than not, his workouts were between the sheets until the ten minute coll. Tim was a bull jock and was usually on the Superintendent s List. Wedding bells owoit Tim and his high school sweetheart upon grod- uotion, and in that respect, only con he be called a lifer. Success and happiness will certoinly mork Tim s future years. TERENCE LYNN MANSON After leaving Mossillon, Ohio, the football capital of the world, Terry stumbled through a rother troubled Plebe year His Youngster cruise was nothing but pro- fessional odvoncement oboord the U.S.S. Hospital. His I don t give a damn saying led him on the path of many barrel-sized females. As his tales spread, after those second class summer rollies. Pig Meat continued Haioumoing it up. The only thing Terry didn t go for in a big way wos his tiny TV. Finolly deciding to settle down, he bought some goldfish to replace the void made by Hermy s advonces. In spite of his desire to float on the weekends, Terry will somehow dodge five yeors as o seagoing incompetent. Five Hundred Seven JACK RUTHERFORD MISSIMER Claiming a wrong turn on Thunder Rood led him to the Boot School, Jack entered as one of the youngest members of the Class of 70. Plebe Year found old J. R. trying his hand at squaring away the System here at USNA. After a few consultations with the Brigade and Battalion Commanders, Jack decided to let the Academy solve its own problems and to use his time by concentrating on academics. The remainder of Jack ' s stay was spent on pondering the imponderable mathematical mysteries contrived by the wizards of the Mathematics Department. After having risen to fame as one of the best drummers at the Academy, Jack had to turn down offers by the Jefferson Air- planes, the Beatles, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Jack ' s bubbly personality, sharp wit, and keen mind should stand him in good stead for greater suc- cess in the future. HENRY NICHOLAS PILGER Captain Easy " come to the infamous trade school after an illustrious academic and athletic career in North Syracuse, New York. He quickly adjusted to the new routine and began making successful assaults on the Academic Departments and athletic fields. The latter occasionally resulted in short sabbaticals for re- cuperation. But, he mode the best of a poor situation by calling in support from his little block book. Pilge " constantly expanded his activities ond could be found studying the TV Guide or doing research in many D. C. establishments. Mathematics was Rick s forte, and he spent much time giving E. I. to his puzzled friends. His decision for Morine green with wings surprised no one, and he will be a welcome addition to any command. FRANCIS PATRICK REGAN Although Frank came to us from Georgia, he was a New Jersey boy at heart. If ever there were a class philosopher, Frank has to qualify for it. He always has a special outlook on life and makes sure you are ex- posed to it. After numerous approaches to the aca- demic world, Frank finally found an unlocked door and appears confidently headed for future success. Frank was always a welcome and fierce competitor on the various intramural teams, no one will ever for- get his running footsteps as he heard someone ' s chow package being opened - in foct he would even share a little of it with you. He lived the straight life and maybe someday his advancement to his highest goal, |.g., will be realized. Five Hundred Eight ANDREW COXE ROBERTSON A C come to banono-lond via the Novol Reserve- Bullis Prep route from Council Rock High in Newtown, Pennsylvania. Plebe indoctrination was taken in stride, but at the outset, Andy realized thot studies would have to take top billing. Quickly making friends with the Pad Monster, ' the academic years found Andy pursuing his academic and extracurricular minors - Mechanical Engineering and females, re- spectively. Many a night one could find him in a smoke filled room with his books spread around him playing solitaire. Well acquointed with the wardroom, but willing to play his port in the Brigade Organiza- tion, Andy still found time to play on Batt and Com- pany sports squads. Always reody to help a class- mate, Andy ' s drive and determinotion will be a wel- comed addition ' to any air squadron. JAMES MICHAEL WADE If to have loved and lost is better thon not to have loved ot all ' is a criterion for hoppiness, it might ex- plain Mike ' s persistent smile. And if long love offoirs weren ' t one of his high points, academics were - provided they did not have to be done on a slide rule. He was a consistent member of either the Dean ' s or Superintendent ' s Lists, on accomplishment consid- ering his extracurricular dobblings: producer of the Mosqueroders, Advertising Editor of the Lucky Bag, member of the Sailing Squadron, Russian Club, Photo Club, and the C P Telephone Company s Dialing for Dollars Club (this phone bill is exorbitant, I m going to call her and tell her we ' ve got to cut down ' ). One you can always turn to for help, ond a softy uncier his overkill exterior, Mike will make a great spy. ROBERT JAMES WYMAN Rob came to the Academy straight from the green hills of Vermont only to find himself faced with the blue seas of Plebe year. However, his clever wit and outgoing personality saw him safely through thot year and the remaining three. Rob could more often be found with a sports page in hand rather than a wires book, but always managed to keep a step ahead of the academic board. He could alwoys be counted on for the onswer to the sports question no one else could find, and his afternoons found him working as a bucket jockey for the basketball team. He was always o welcome member on any intramural sports team, and was os pleasing a person off the field OS on. Rob looks forward to a coreer in Naval Aviotion ofter graduation, and we ' re sure that if they can find him o plane he can see out of, he ' ll hove no problems. CHARLES MARTIN TODORICH Charlie come to USNA from the megalopolis of Johns- town, Pennsylvania, home of the world ' s steepest in- clined plane. He acquired the nickname Toad ' under the motherly care of o mother named Womus Toad would usually be found warbling with the Glee Club, listening to Simon Gorfunkel, or making steerage runs, for which he eorned the title the ge- dunk kid . . " As a bull ma|or. Toad s heart wos in Maury Hall where he engaged in the gentlemanly pur- suit of history and tried to ovoid the fontosies of Mi- chelson Hall He was proudest of the fact that he be- came engaged to his high school sweetheart during his term, or rather his stay, at the Novol Academy. Charlie s future upon graduation promises to be o re- warding and successful one. f 1 " •t " t i ' ft K £ S S: ' W - SECOND CLASS LEFT TO RIGHT FROM BACK ROW: Tom Tra- vis, R, J. Maher, J R.

A management student, he kept aca- demics in their proper perspective. While others were looking for new cars. Gene s interest was in trucks. A member of the Drum and Bugle Corps for three years. Gene finally left to pursue advanced studies under Morello and Krupo. Although he stopped smoking many times, he never quite gave it up. Professionally oriented. Gene spent a summer on the Plebe Detail and was instrumental in the Company ' s leadership. He was a regular at both company sports and bull sessions alike. The future sees Gene as a dedicoted officer and a credit to the Academy and the Naval Service JOHN JOSEPH OEMLEIN, JR. An enlightened R.OT.C. student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, John abdicated to USNA in the summer of 1966. With his prowess in the field of Sys- tems Analysis, the human computer carried many o midshipman through mathematics, electrical science, and engineering. His scientific ability was shown in his ingenious concoctions such os his fully outomoted room. Johns conservatism was evident in his choice of music but not in his choice of clothing. On week- ends, he took advantage of oil the facilities which Washington, D. C. hod to offer on enterprising midshipman. His stay at Annapolis has been mode more pleasant by the frec uent visits of his girl from his hometown, Syracuse, New York John s exception- al ability and professionalism will be assets to the Nuclear Power Program where he plans to pursue his career. JOHN WALTER FORRESTER Truly man who was with it and for it, " Yogi come to USNA, after finding the college life at Clark Univer- sity too restricted. Flying from Armonk, New York, Mister Bear set up residence at the Penthouse, where he perfected the art of sleeping in until 0644. Yogi, being allergic to books, developed a true talent with his camera. He was easy to spot at a football game, using his tool to socialize with the visiting cheerlead- ers. Often heard to soy you con t run away from od- versity, " Mister Bear suffered through each exhoust- ing weekend. Whatever. the future has in store for John, we are sure that he will find true success ond die hard in whatever endeavor he pursues. five Hundred Thirteen DALE EDWARD GANGE Dale, who calls Albuquerque, New Mexico, home, hacJ a pretty good idea of what the Navy was all about before he come to the Naval Academy, A Navy |unior, he |oined the Reserve during his last year at Princess Anne High School in Virginia Beach, and served a tour in the Mediterranean before going to NAPS and the Academy. Athletically he found his place to be the Fencing team, where he became skilled with the epee, being team captain his lost year. By noture a quiet guy. Dole spent most of his time at the Academy with his girl, his guitar, and his sports cor magazines, not necessarily in that order. A Naval Architecture minor, he plans to go Navy Line, followed by the Engineering Duty Officer program, where he can build the ships of tomorrow ' s Novy. JAMES MARSHALL GARMAN Born and raised m fun loving Washingtonville, New York, close to the dork haunts of the Block Knights, Gorms sow his way to truth and light and the Navy way of life. A keen competitor, Jim worked and played his way up to the varsity soccer team in his Junior year and played for us this year, too. A com- plete list of his " outside " interests would be too leng- thy in its entirety, but a few of them are basketball, football, chess, ice skating, dating, wall push ups, Horleys, Vetts, and occasionally when given the op- portunity, he ' ll even ride a wild wave or two. Uncer- tain as to his final choice of career, it ' s a toss up be- tween the Corps and Surface Line. GARY ANTHONY GRADISNIK Navy inherited " Gros " directly from high school in his hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. From the begin- ning he set out to prove that you could succeed with- out really trying, and hove fun doing it. Gory was a standout in everything he did, as evidenced by his 4.0 QPR and being voted All-East on Navy ' s ISO lb. foot- ball team. He was equally active in the weekend so- cial life, but still found time to write every night to his girl bock home. He also became widely known for his outstanding collection of literature and kept many a hungry Plebe from starving with his deliveries of hot chow. The Nuclear Power Program should take care of any free time Gary might hove after gradua- tion, and is undoubtedly receiving one of the finer products of USNA. Five Hundred Fourteen WILLIAM CLAY GRUBB, JR. Clay came to Navy from Little Dothon, Alobama, with impressive academic and community service creden- tials and an outdoor background providing him with the energy and motivation needed to succeed in his chosen career as a Marine. His lucrative tales of Bear Bryant and Tide football by no means overshadowed his outstanding academic achievements of Superin- tendent s List quality, his passion for gab being his ma|or barrier to " stars. " Foremost in his athletic ca- reer was crew There wasn ' t a more dedicated light- weight out at Hubbard Hall struggling every year through all three sports seasons for success in this de- manding sport. Possessing intense dedication, great leadership potential, and immense common sense. Clay should become o sure success and top future leader in the Corps. KENT WILLIAMS HAMLIN Riding to the Naval Academy on a camel from Ho- Ho-Kus, New Jersey, Kent soon distinguished himself OS winner. By losing no time in finding new outlets for his energy, Hambone could be seen on Navy s soc- cer fields or spending weekends streaking across Ver- mont ' s ski slopes. Studying in the shadows of the blocklights of the penthouse while inhaling Coca- Colas, the Weekend Wanderer reached new heights in order to make the Nuclear Power Program. As an E. H. and G. Minor, Mister Chips struggled through navy ' s answer to The Great Books " and delighted his room- mate by ploying his guitar. In dealing with vending machines, pay phones, or administering the butter- scotch brownie torture, Kent will long be remembered by his classmates Whether livening up social func- tions or indoctrinating Plebes, Kent ' s natural talents olwoys made him a standout, admired by oil. STEVEN ADOLPH HAZELRIGG The Rigg arrived on the shores of the Severn by way of El Paso, Texos, and soon dedicated his life ' s work toword academic ochievements and the pad monster, not necessarily in that order. A keen com- petitor, Steve, after two hard years as a bagger, worked his way into a starting position on the com- pony volleyball team, and always fond of the great outdoors, even mode the supreme sacrifice of expos- ing his Grecian god body to the bleakness of the tun- dra on Hospital Point. Needless to say, Steve spent a great portion of the spring set Softball season in- volved in individual workouts. Navy Air is receiving true friend, ond outstanding man, ond an excellent leoder in the person of Steve. Good luck from all the guys in big 13. JAY BENNEn JANS Coming from the obscure little village of Wilmette, Il- linois, one bright day in June of ' 65, Jay brought his friendly smile and easygoing manner to USNA. Joy was always noted for these two factors, not to men- tion the spacious forehead which came to be his trademark for the next five years. Although he was not noted for his academic prowess, Joy never gave up trying, and was always willing to help a friend in need. On the sports scene. Jay was a key member of several championship handball teams. His other inter- ests include soccer, boating, photography, and a very pretty young lady from Annapolis. Jay, who has al- ways been a very serious ond dedicoted Midshipman, will moke o very fine officer, one of which the Navy can be |ustly proud. WILLIAM JOSEPH KELLER, JR. When found awoke Bill con usually be seen making his doily pilgrimage to Maury Hall. An avid Foreign Affairs ma|or, he upholds the tradition of the Bull Department in never being at a loss for words. His levelheadedness and dedication were put to good use OS company Honor Representative for three years. Never one to ignore a good meal, Bill remained un- daunted by the attempts of the Navy orthodontists to curb his appetite. Athletically, he proved to be a bul- wark to numerous company sports. The Bear " will long be remembered as both the supply and demand of the company coffee mess. Leave periods were al- ways spent pursuing his favorite interest, a certain nurse in his home town of Chester, Pennsylvania. The Navol Service will undoubtedly benefit from Bill ' s commission. GARY DOUGLAS KNIGHT A Navy Junior native of Arizona, The Tuber " entered the Brigade from J E. B. Stuort High in Falls Church, Virginia. He quickly showed us oil that he came to ploy anything, anytime, anywhere. His fighting spirit as a 150 lb. Imemon and lacrosse goalie was matched only by his fights with statics, wires, and the Execu- tive Deportment. The latter earned him a rare, non- restrictive, (Thank you, Amir " ) Block N " os a second classman. Always one for the finer things, Gory could be counted on to be where the porties or the hon- eys ' were, but when there was work to be done, he wos there too. Despite being a victim of the Colum- bus ' for Youngster Cruise, Gory wonts and has al- ways worked towards o career in Naval Aviation. Five Hundred Fiheen FRANCIS BUFFUM LORD The Novy has long had its grasp on Frank. After grad- uating from High School, Frank signed on that prover- bial " dotted line. " Not appreciating physical lobor, he quickly applied for and devoured machinist Math school. This was followed by Nuclear Power School and Prototype training. At Prototype, he and some Rickover disciples had a falling-out and he applied for NAPS. There he found his intellect untested, but still graduated first, academically. At the Naval Academy he found the Aerospace Department, the Superintend- ent ' s List, and its liberty to his liking. The extra liberty provided more time for his greatest passion, sports cars. There not being a sports car club, Frank |oined such groups as the French Club, the AIAA, the Plebe fencing team, and the sailing team. After graduation, Frank plans to go Navy Air. May his wishes be sotis- fied someday by that Ferrari with a pretty girl inside. PATRICK JAMES MALONEY Hoiling from Norfolk, Pat was naturally drawn to the call of the Noval Service. Acodemics gave " Chief " a brief scare Plebe year, but he quickly recovered de- spite complaints to the contrary. If Pat wasn ' t drag- ging Marcie or buying fourteen dollar knives, he could usually be found fast asleep with a " gunge " book in hand. When drug out of the sock though, he could al- ways be counted on to do his best in sports, be it in- tramurols or a " pick-up " game. Pat ' s easygoing na- ture often made him a favorite target for good- natured ribbing, but we always knew he could be counted on to lend a helping hand wherever needed. Pat ' s friendship will be something we will all trea- sure. Best of luck in the fleet from the guys in 13th Company. Five Hundred Sixteen DAVID ALFRED MARTIN Modoc, " the star member of the USNA sleeping team, came here as a BMOC from the bustling farm metropolis of Modoc, Indiana. In no time, the future Marine picked his goals and started working toward them. With single-minded determination, he logged hours in the pad and bagged studies. Dave has shown real class in getting rack time and grades with zero effort. Naturally, these achievements left little time for sports or clubs, so Modoc " stuck with company sports and limited his participation to the FAC. In his rare periods of non-hibernotion, he consistently im- pressed us with his easygoing nature and ready wit. No doubt the smallest member of the company will wear the green as the giant he really is. WILSON ASHLEY " ROC " MILES, JR. Roc came to the Academy fresh out of high school in Abilene, Texas, in Knob Noster, Missouri, and in Co- lumbia, Missouri, from whence he graduated and where all indications have it, his heart has remained. He brought with the rest of his body, however, avid interests in ham radios and sports, and he is a rugged lightweight footballer and a scuba diver. Chip, as m " monk, " has also been acclaimed the fastest " mus- tard knife " on 7-0, Aside from this, however, he ' s found little time on the side to study for a tough ' Aero " ma|or. This is appropriate since he spends most of his leave time up in the oir, due to both " drinky " and commuting back and forth from " Miz- zou. " Graduation will find this prospective astronaut shooting through some mean skies looking for his " wings of gold. " JOHN NEVIN SHAFFER The " Sparrow " fluttered in from Cubo on a hi-|acked coattoil and never let go even though his hands were bruised and battered from the many trials of Acade- my life. With him, Nev brought his drinking hot, skateboard, light blue " low rent ' " |eans, and a vocab- ulary all his own. While here he added to his collec- tion on assorted amount of drinking mugs, J-town boots, and even developed a set of ' " cowboy " side- burns. Nev has always taken pride in the fact that " Even the Plebes appreciated his tremendous sense of humor and quick wit. " Seriously, it is hard to be seri- ous about Q happy-go-lucky fellow like Nev. Wherever he goes in the Service, he will be remembered by his classmates and will surely become an outstanding officer. JOHN THOMAS SHIELDS, III Tom came to USNA from the home of the zoomies, Denver, Colorado, with an ingroined love of flying. He s militory from A to Z, coming from o military family and graduating from the New Mexico Military Institute. Tom adjusted to the Navy routine with his usual efficiency and proceeded to show where his heart and mind really were as he took his major in Aerospace Engineering. Being Superintendents List moterial, he is planning on going to post graduate school after graduation. His intelligence, ability and great drive show up in whatever he does, whether it ' s playing on the squash team or hitting the books. He always puts out that hundred ond ten percent and will undoubtedly make o mark in Navy Air. STEVEN ROBERT WAIMSIEY Walms, the Brooklyn hero from Howoii, never found a dull moment at Annapolis. Stalwart middle guard of the 150 lb. football team, V hipitout often made some incredible passes Steve ' s scoring ability on the gridiron and off endeared him to his fellow midship- men and soon made U. S. Wolms o legend throughout the Brigade Whatever the situation, Wolms was al- ways good friend to hove on your side. Whether rood-running back and forth to D. C. or speedbooting on the Chesapeake Boy, he was always a man of oc- tion, Broadwoy Joe hopes to |oin the ranks of the Naval Aviators after graduation. After seeing him in action in Annapolis, we are sure that the Novy will acquire a great flier. CARL ERIC WICK The Wicker ' came to us from the sprawling plains of Derby, Kansas, but presently hoils from Edmonds, Washington. A troveler by nature, Corl has logged more miles than the U.S. Mail in his wanderings across the country. His love for research hos led him to many varied ond expensive near discoveries. These activities hove been known to strike fear in the hearts of the profs in the Electrical Science Department where he minors. Although not on avid conversation- alist. Wicker ' s sense of humor has brought many o grin to the Thirteenth. He possesses the envioble abil- ity of being able to reduce problems to simplicity and his advice has been readily sought. Carl ' s sense of adventure has led him to choose Aviation, a branch which will benefit from his tolents. Five Hundred Seventeen .r. .

An amiable Annopoliton, he has been in resicience here since 1964 as a sometimes stucient of the " Navy " way. After having gamed a high berth in the battle for the top, he has managed to fight his way into mediocrity and |ust missed a return visit to 4-1 in recognition of his acocJemic excellence. The serious side of him is torn between Gyrene Green and Navy Air, o conflict easily resolved by the introduction of guaranteed " Marine Air. Tom ' s devotion to detail and consistently high military standing should be invaluable assets in his drive to be o great leader, and his sticktoitiveness " will definitely aid him after graduation. KENNETH WILLIAM CHAMBERS, JR. Bill, coming directly from high school and an all Navy family, found the Academy much as he expected. Id walk mile for Chambers, " is a standard with his classmates ond others who know him. He is extreme- ly well liked and con always be found in the thick of any B. S. session. A real asset to the company football and battalion lacrosse teams. Bill has shown much pride and a real devotion to the attornment of athlet- ic prowess. On weekends he turns to his amateur photography or dragging for a break from the rou- tine. He can be found either in the darkroom or with a cutie, or, come to think of it, with o cutie in a dark room. Bill has decided to devote his outstanding atti- tude and spirit to the surface fleet. PHILLIP MARK STEVEN CRISSON Ad|usting to Navy life from that of an " Army Brat " presented few problems for Mark. Quick to leorn any- thing, as evidenced by his consistent Dean ' s List standing, and o real " Bilger " to stand next to in for- mations; " Crimson " still found much time to devote to Ccrmpany sports and the local ladies. Fortunately for the women, no one knew better than Mork that going into blues meant Friday night liberty and car riding privileges. Mark ' s open " little black book " poli- cy mode classmate ' s quest for lates much less of a chore. His competitive spirit and athletic ability mode the ogony of defeat a seldom felt emotion for those company teams which were lucky enough to gain his talents. The " Mod Stork " is convinced that " nuckie poos " are his colling, so the moior problem he faces won ' t come Service Selection night, but rather the night before he purchases either a GT-6 or a Corvette. No matter what he drives to New London, the " Snor- kels " are fortunate indeed to gain such o valuable asset. Five Hundred Twenty ■ . » .- sa KENNETH ALBERT DIETER Dietz, or better known as The Nose, " came to the Acodemy from Wcynesburg College, where he ex- celled in football. Twelve smashed noses later found him still determined to get that guy with the pigskin, OS he was a standout in company heavyweight foot- ball. Still another interest pursued by Dietz is that of being a top-notch scuba instructor 0500 every Mon- day, Wednesday, and Friday finds him in the Natato- rium instructing others in the art of underwater div- ing. The rest of Dietz s time is divided between girls, spoils, and the pad. Aspiring to be the owner of an E-type Jaguar, he finds the common Vet lovers intol- erable. Motivated by a hard, fast, aggressiveness, Dietz plans to enhance his Naval Career with a pair of the gold wings of a Naval Aviator. WILLIAM WOODROW FETZER " Fetz " coming to the Naval Acodemy from the excit- ing metropolis of Millville, Pennsylvania, had no trouble in ad|usting to the exciting life of a Midship- man. Fetz ' s quick wit, especially during tube time, " IS known and respected by all who try to motch him. Aspiring to be a top-notch soccer player has kept him in shape and running throughout four years at USNA. Academics never really presenting a problem left Fetz with time on his hands at night, which allowed him to pursue his ' business interests " in the hopes of fi- nancing his girl s ring and his own sports car. Being on Aero man, he is looking forward to a fruitful ca- reer in Naval Aviation, where no doubt he will be a big success. RAYMOND WILLIAM GANTHNER Coming to Navy with the powder of the Marine ski slopes in his hoir and the resourceful determination of an upland lumber|ack, " Ray-Roy " promptly demon- strated how it was done in the classroom and in the lanes of the swimming pool. Always ready to help a bewildered classmate, Ray found a solution to many a mathematical monster for late hour visitors, espe- cially during exams, which he successfully prepared for in the arms of Morpheus. Any weekend could find our boy gleefully partaking in the |oys of woman worship with one young lass in particular, although he has been known to go afield in his ventures. Ray- Ray has provided a strong arm for many intramural teams, constantly displaying a winning spirit and a fierce determination that will aid him in the deep hunting trails of a nuclear sub JOHN ARTHUR GRANGER A product of Lummi Island, Buddy come to Annapolis and found the atmosphere somewhat different thon he hod en|oyed around his home in the Northwestern corner of Washington State. He had no trouble ad|ust- ing to Plebe year and was known to sing in the show- er even on occasions such as uniform races. Buddys vocal talents have led him through mony unforget- table moments in the choir, as vice president of the Glee Club, and president-director of the Musical Club Show. His quick wit and jovial personality have won him many friends throughout the Brigade, as well as with the opposite sex. There is never a dull moment when he is on the scene. His future career in Navy Air will surely prove a vital asset to the Naval Service. JOHN BENARD HART To most of us, John was more commonly known as J. B. John come to the Naval Academy from Jersey City, New Jersey, after completing o year at St. Peters Col- lege. During that first year, like most of us, J. B. faced many trials ond tribulations and came out relatively unscathed. After Plebe year, J. B. settled right into the routine. John worked hard on the academic aspect of the Naval Academy. This hard work paid off, as he became a regular on the Superintendents List. Of course, all this extra effort caused J. B. to hove o never ending struggle with the pod monster " during his free time. In athletics John s asset was his speed, he was on both battalion track and cross country teams. Second Class Year his cross country teom was ' the Brigade Champion. With John ' s ability to work, we ore confident that no motter what bronch of the Novol Service he chooses, he will do his very best. JACK ARTHUR JOHNSON Jock IS a product of the fertile deserts of Arizona. Coming to the Naval Acodemy directly after high school, Jock has excelled academically and has consistently been on the superintendent ' s and Dean ' s Lists through his efforts. Academics, however, never kept Jack from having a good time during his four year confinement at the Academy. Whether he was with E. W. or any of his other lovely dotes. Jack was always the life of the party. He could olwoys be counted on by a classmate to get him a date for a week-end or for help in an academic subject. With his ability to mix hard work with even harder ploy, Jock should go for with his career, whether it be in or out of the Novy. Five Hundred .Twenty-one CARL ERVIN KLINGELBERGER About the only thing the " Littlest Texan " didn ' t excel in while at USNA was height. One of the last great burners of the midnight oil, " Berger " could be found at almost anytime of the night studying. His efforts, however, were well rewarded, as he was a regular on the Superintendent ' s List. Other than forcing him to put a towel under his door when studying after taps, Plebe year gave Carl little trouble. After spending the bulk of Youngster Cruise m the Norfolk BOO and 0 ' Club, Carl breezed through Youngster year. Second Class year found him trying to keep some semblance of order at class meetings as the Second Class Compa- ny Commander. As Service Selection Night approach- es, Novy Line is Making the strongest bid for the tal- ents of the " Littlest Texan " MICHAEL EDWARD LOWE Matriculating into the Academy after a year at Bullis Prep, Mike found it easy to ad|ust to military life. Al- ways ready to square any corner with a cheery " recon sir, " and even more ready and willing to do his best at anything he fried, Mike soon found himself on the top of the ladder. A native of Sarasota, Florida, a minor in Physics, a member of the Plebe Detail, and an honor representative for four years, Mike was a firm believer in the system. Never asking anyone to do anything he wouldn ' t do himself, he commanded the respect of all who knew him. Mike will be re- membered by many for his fondness of the green, his appreciation of good " Peanuts, " and his love of a military tuck. But to those who really knew him, he will be remembered always for his unending determi- nation, sincerity, and dedication. GARY DILLON MARVIN Arriving at USNA as a qualified submariner, although straight out of Crossland High School, Gory set out to distinguish himself anew. His real interests, besides a certain special young lady, have been sailing and Varsity Rifle Team. Winning the Navy N-Stor and qualifying for command of an Academy yawl Young- ster year set " Morv " apart as a man of much talent. He managed to maintain a respectable Academic standing, even though the Superintendent foiled to laud him for his knowledge. Known to all as a fun- loving and helpful guy with on infectious lough, Gary made friends easily. Never one to remoin still, Gary could always be found building unusual pro|ects or playing the guitar. Whether he picks the Silent Service or Naval Aviation, Gary will prove to be a first-rate officer. f lislediol In ttnt ployei.Ie ifiinlei oil) lie s« omlipm olfa( ' itaesor to look Wll o " ni f i lilonil ktdwjp ! tWl) oil (mil linoglii) Wo n ?iili»il 11 1) Five Hundred Twenty-two TERRY WILLIAM McKINSEY Terry hails from the booming metropolis of Glad- stone, Oregon.

During the leave periods, he can be found at West Chester State or in Portland where his fishing stories ore topped only by his steam-roller driving. Mac looks to the air for his success. LARRY ICHABOD MOORE, III Mo " comes to us from Wilson, North Carolina. His greatest interests at USNA have been in the area of sports, both professional and collegiate. During the fall and winter, very few weekends pass without Ichobod putting a little of his pay on the line. Being extremely lucky, he usually comes out in better finan- cial condition when it is over. Anywhere you go throughout the Brigade, you ' ll always be able to find someone who knows or has heard of Ichobod. Always one for o lough and a good story. Lorry hos been able to keep e.eryone around him in good spirits with his quick wit and toll stories. With his outstonding per- sonalit, to carry him through. Lorry should have little trouble making it, no matter where he goes ofter graduation. PAUL ODELL, JR. A native of Middleton, Massachusetts, Paul come to the shores of the Severn, directly from high school Although the change was a big one, from carefree high school to a fretting Plebe, Paul made the neces- sary adjustments to perfection. In fact, he was one of the few people who made it through Plebe year with no demerits. His athletic abilities were witnessed by his contemporaries in at least one of his many sports: boxing, volleyball, weightlifting, and scuba diving, to name a few. He also was the mom stalwart of the company lightweight football team. Paul has yet to decide where he II go after graduation. But, no mofter what he chooses, success will be as easy for him awoy from the Academy as it was while he was here. ROBERT JOSEPH PACENTA Coming to the Naval Academy from Akron, Ohio, Bob brought with him to the Academy on impressive rec- ord in football, basketball, and academics. He contin- ued with his great determination and won honors os leading quarterback for the 1966 Plebe eleven. A brief tour with the junior varsity brought him to the Big Blue for his lost two years, where he distinguished himself by constantly driving toward the goals he hod set. Off the football field. Bob wos known to lead an easy going life which wos filled with the sounds of soul and his many female admirers. Bob ' s determina- tion, competitive spirit, and the will-to-win will sure- ly promise success in any field. •S. " DUPREE PARKER Coming to us from the cream of the Louisiana crop after two years of college and prep school, Dupree was faced with a more difficult adjustment than most upon entering USNA. But Dupe " showed his remarkable abilities of adaptation by quickly erecting and refining his own theories of coast-effectiveness, and improving their results eoch succeeding year. Dupree ' s outstanding athletic obility and competitive spirit gained him a starting spot as linebacker on the Plebe team and greatly aided company teams as an uppercloss. Popular both with his clossmotes and. the local ladies, S. D. was a valuable osset to any party - just ask him! With the aid of his reliable, easy-roll pencil employed in making oil his important de- cisions, Dupree has chosen Navy Air as the most des- erving branch of the fleet. It is with a twinge of re- gret and great deal of apprehension thot his friends see him moke this decision - coasting is o risky busi- ness with airplanes. five Hundred Twenly-lhree V.f!J »_i .i-ji t, - HENRY SLATER PREVEHE, JR. ■Redman " came to brighten our lives from Hays, North Caroline, heart of the moonshine country. Even vi hen the chips were down for Hank or for those of us who know him, he always had a good word of en- couragement. Plebe year Honk tried to make the bas- ketball team, but the coach failed to keep him. The varsity ' s loss has been the intramural ' s gain. He fought all the way to the wire with the God of 2.0, but the south kept rising. Honk kept faith in himself, his friends, and God, which made him one of the best liked among his classmates. His unselfishness and bright spirit in choir, sports, and fellowship has in- tilled in those who know him a lasting impression of a fine man. The Navy is getting a fine individual and Naval Officer, RICHARD LYNN PURCELL Its been rumored that Rick drove down to the banks of the Severn on that first hot summer day in the family vehicle, a Schmidt ' s Beer truck. He did not have to leave home as far behind as many, because he come from the scene of the annual Army-Navy conflict. Rick had little difficulty ad|usting to the Naval Academy system. In academics he managed to moke the Superintendent ' s List occasionally. In athlet- ics he was a member of the varsity track team, and also displayed his prowess on the soccer field as a Plebe and later as a company star. Perhaps Rick ' s most outstanding achievement, though, was being awarded the title of " Joe Nov " for his exceptional in- ability to navigate. With his quick wit and likeable personality. Rick will make a (me addition to the naval Service. DENNIS MICHAEL RYAN Since the early days of Plebe Summer, Denny ' s quick wit has brought relief from the daily routine into the lives of those who know him. DeWitt, Iowa was real- ly sorry when the " Jester " decided to come east. You con always find Dennis in the field house or Dohlgren Hall burning up the basketball courts with his now famous hook shot, or he might be keep ing in shape by running out by Hospital Point. Academically, Den- nis reached a peak first semester of second class year, making both the Superintendent s and Dean ' s Lists. When he ' s not studying, Dennis is reading about the newest aircraft of the fleet in order to prepare for a career in Aviation, Navy Air will certainly welcome the service of this dedicated future pilot. MICHAEL LEROY SIMMONS Mike, affectionately known as Stump ' or the ' 1 MC, " calls Marietta, Pennsylvania his home. Look- ing for excitement, Mike decided to |oin the Navy and see the world. While at USNA, Mike has excelled in such areas as the mile run, highest decibel rating, and highest total consumption of Snyder ' s Potato Chips and RC Cola. In addition to this, Mike ' s achievements on the Varsity and Intramural football fields are sur- passed only by the ease and grace with which he handles academics, particularly navigation. Navy line beckons the " Stump, " with a hope for first duty as- signment at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. Mike ' s dy- namic and congenial personality has made him a trusted friend of all who knew him, and he will surely find success in the Navy or wherever his endeavors take him. GREGORY ALLEN STILES Greg come to the Naval Academy from sunny Califor- nia. His home is in Son Diego, but being from a Navy family, he has lived in many other places. Greg mode the transition from civilian to Midshipman without many problems because of his military background. During his four yeors at USNA, Greg managed to stay out of academic trouble, although the Bull Depart- ment gave him a few uneasy moments. Athletically, Greg was able to master squash. During the winter months, he could always be found in the field house participating, Greg has always wanted to fly, so naturally he wants to become a Naval Aviator, In any field, we ore sure Greg will have a successful career as a Naval Officer. CHESTER EDWIN STRAIT Chet |oined us here at the Academy fresh out of the hallowed halls of BFA in St. Albans, Vermont, where he was a three sport letterman and renowned skier. He quickly ad|usted to Academy life and managed to work his way to the top of the company striper orga- nization, drawing good-natured heckling from his classmates in the process. " Sea-Dog, " as he is la- belled because of his salty bearing, has been quite active m sports while he has been here. He built up the company ' s intramural teams by playing on the volleyball, football, basketball, and baseball teams. Chet has never had much trouble with grades, and hence he filled his abundant spare time with classics, making him quite knowledgeable on the sub|ect. He plans to fly the friendly skies of Navy Air upon gradu- ation. Five Hundred Twenty-four ■= V rL ,.. ' » U.: ' ►; Sft. T 1 ' JOHN JAMES SULLIVAN, JR.

His mam interest being girls, John has run the gamut of true loves, " as Trinity College can attest to, and single-handedly supports the C P with his monthly phone bills. But, these pose no threats to his financial status since his ingenious " Sweatshirt, Stationery, and Odd-Ends Company " brings in his main income. With his eager willingness to help out at anytime, the Navy can look forward to getting a dependable first- class officer, MARTIN RAE VANDENBROOK Marty was known by his clossmotes as the moc " while at USNA, but acquired the nickname Rowdy " from his escapades in D. C. while on leave. He prided himself in always having a neat uniform and a cleon room. The evening hours found Marty peering out from behind forty dollar s worth of EH G books, and he was a regular on the Superintendent ' s and Dean ' s Lists. Rarely was a critical word mentioned con- cerning the Dallas Cowboys when Marty was within reach of a heavy or sharp instrument. Marty is a proud Texan from Amarillo, and is seldom sociable following the Cowboys annual loss to Green Boy. Marty plans to enter some phase of Naval Aviation upon graduation, and we ore sure that his desire and ability will take him for. EDWARD WLODARCZYK Ed, one of Runnemede, New Jersey ' s best, came to the Academy after a year of wine, women, ond song at Rutgers University. A welcome addition to the Naval Academy family, he found that he readily adjusted himself to the rigors of academic ond athletic life. An overwhelming success in his academic endeavors, he was a hand-picked member of the Academy ' s select five-yeor enrichment program, and as on athlete, his accomplishments on the Varsity baseball field ore sur- passed only by his legendary presence at extracurricu- lar swimming every afternoon during the winter. An avid bosketballer as well, Ed can be found on the weekends at the Palestra in Philly cheering on the Explorers. Ed isjooking forward to the warm sun and oir offered at NAS Pensacolo.

The intensity of his love for airplanes could only be matched by the intensity of his war with the Aero Department. Jeff ' s high school athletic record at Port Jefferson High School on Long Island provided ample preparation for his role as stalwart of the company footballers and bullshooters. His hard-working nature even carried over to his social activities. It takes a real go-getter like Jeff to appreciate a gallon of Bali Hai at five A.M. The Navy can look forward to gaining a fine aviator after graduation. BRUCE EARL BRUNN Bruce comes to the Academy from John Marshall High School in Los Angeles, California, Renowned throughout the Brigade as the " Grunt, " he spends much of his time upholding that name. Already quali- fied airborne and scuba, planning to go recon, he is much loved by the Plebes for his assistance during early morning workout periods, and he has always generated a somewhat similar opinion in company lightweight football opponents. Since giving up swim- ming, his robust frame can always be spotted aboard a yowl soiling the clear waters of the Chesapeake, far from the marching he loves. A Foreign Affairs minor, Bruce studiously applies himself to academics. To the " Corps " which will gratefully receive him on gradua- tion, we soy never fear: the Grunt has learned to keep his feet out of the mud, and his head above water. PETER ATSUSHI CRYSTAL Pete, more commonly referred to as X-X-Tal Nipper, or J-man, is notoriously famous for being one of the Brigade ' s finest connoisseurs of liquid refreshment. His phenomenal ability to hold his own has been demonstrated on numerous occasions during the course of the post four years, as he became a regular visitor to popular establishments in nearby George- town. Coming to the Academy from California, Pete ' s heart lies somewhere between San Jose and Hoight- Ashbury, San Francisco. His enthusiasm for sports ranges from skiing and tennis to blue-bedspread pullovers, the latter being his undisputed specialty. His fondness for YP ' s and Seamanship Afloat make him a sure bet for Navy Line. DALE FRANKLIN DANIEL Dale come to the Academy from the small Southern Californio town of Whittier. A true athlete. Dale has always been on active participant in sports including Plebe football and wrestling; ond has made his pres- ence felt in the intramural sports of football, softboll, wrestling, and squash. Dale can olways be counted on to give assistance when its needed, whether it be academic help or standing watch for a classmate on some important weekend. Known for his great sense of humor, he found many opportunities to demon- strate it to the Plebes, who were always grateful . . . of course. Although as yet unsure of his service selec- tion. Dole IS sure to be successful in whatever he does because of his pride in himself and his willingness to work hard. GERALD GEORGE ERMENTROUT Reading, Pennsylvania, home of pretzels, Reading Railroad of Monopoly fame, and inf omous Reading Beer, is also the home of Butch, Trout, or |ust Jer. He has always been o promoter of soul sounds, and an admirer of Greek anatomy. Being on expert on B-ball, Philly dancers, and the intricacies of female compan- ionship, he was never one to let the system cut into his time for discussion of such matters. With an oc- casional longing look to Penn State, Butch has man- aged to stay in the school of his first choice for four whole years, which says much for his perseverance. The Academy taught him much: mostly that he wishes to follow in the footsteps of his father. five Hundred Twenty-eight iiiuj tke lm fe|XK- All utefa let like Bit 01) itifflie kde - PHILLIP FRANCIS FARGOTSTEIN Fargo ' came to the Academy from sunny Scottsciale, Anzono.

During fiis stay at USNA, Pfiill fios become an active porticipont in many intramural sports and has mastered the chollenging sport of scuba diving. For many reasons he will be remembered as the man who was there when he was needed. No matter what the situation, Phil! would be there, be it watch or aca- demics. At graduation, whichever branch of the serv- ice Phill chooses will be gaining a dedicated officer. Jan arrived at Navy os part of o large contingent from the Block Hills of South Dakota, and managed to be- come the sole survivor in whot was otherwise a mos- sacre. His success con be attributed to hard work and on unquenchable sense of humor. Although the execu- tive department never managed to convert him to the subservience it desired, he fit into the rigors of Acade- my life easily. An outstanding athlete, Jon could be found working out during the most miserable days while less diligent classmates resigned themselves to the pod. His perseverance paid off and Jon become one of the few to win an N " blanket at Navy. Nucle- ar Power School ond gold dolphins look good to Flads ' right now, but to be sure, he will be welcome wherever he goes. Five Hundred Twenty-nine Tony was no stranger to the Navy or to higher educa- tion when he entered the Academy. He was a well- traveled Navy lunior, and hod spent a year at the Uni- versity of Minnesota as a Rotcee when he decided to go regular. At Navy, Tony has applied hinfiself with considerable ability to sports, academics, and profes- sional performance. He did well on the Plebe swim- ming team and in upperclass years became an asset to intramural Softball and lightweight football teams. In his striving for increased awareness, he chose in- ternotionol relations as his academic field and has done quite well. Tony has amply demonstrated his leadership and organizational abilities, and in so doing has led his classmates in the company to a rec- ord number of meetings for a single yeor. Tony contri- butes to any gathering, serious or relaxed, and will serve well in Navy Air. STEVEN JOHN FRASHER Although Steve, alias Flash, spent time as an Ohio farm boy, he prefers to be remembered as the boy from Queen City, Cincinnati, Ohio. He attended Princeton . . . High School ... and wearing his letter jacket, he let people think the best. One of Steve ' s lifelong ambitions was to attend USNA and to run track on the Navy team, but a back in|ury forced him to shift to battalion track where he led his team to victory. Despite his dedication, Steve always found time to relax with his clip-on- tie attitude and wit that enabled him to make the most of any situation. Be- couse of his receding hairline and numerous business dealings, Steve emanated the image of a Wall Street broker. All he needed to complete that image was a ticker tape, and a dime cigar. Port Blackfoot Indian, and port fur trader, his being was the crafty combina- tion of his ancestors. Steve has always been oriented toward the Submarine service. As o habitual member of the Sups List, he stands a good chance of falling under Admiral Rick ' s perusal. ' N Five Hundred Thirty HOWARD ROBERT HALL Because of a back in|ury, Howie was one of tfie few men to valiciate Plebe Summer. Wfien fie rejoined tfie Bngade in tfie fall, Howie lost no time in erecting o name for tiimself. Howard Robert Holl was well known in fiis higti scfiool days for fiis ability on the Qttiletic field: tie continued fiis feme on the Plebe baseboll team where it has been said that he was the best batting practice hitter ever to grace a Navy team. On the intramural field, Howie was an excellent com- petitor in football and fieldball. He would bove been a star in rugby, but he fell asleep at the beginning of the season, and didn ' t woke up till after the last game. Even with his high academic standing, Howie has discounted subs, but whatever field he chooses, he will make on excellent officer. MARVIN JOSEPH HAMM, JR. Marvin Joseph Hamm Jr. is better known to his friends as Marvelous Marv, or os the strongest man in the world. The latter name may be an exaggeration, but Morv IS a real fan of weight lifting and fensorlot- ing. Since coming to USNA, Marv has put his strength to the test in cross country, rugby, squash, and foot- boll. Marvelous Morv has been one of those mids thot seems always to get the best of the good deals. Take, for example, the time he was four hours late return- ing from a weekend (through no fault of his own) and ended up with fifty demos., and three days of Spring Leave restricting in scenic Bancroft Hall. But Marv works hard, ond, despite his luck, his desire and enthusiasm should carry him to much success in o ca- reer as Noval Aviator. WIUIAM HELFEN Throughout his entire stay at the Academy, Bill has displayed a keen interest in sports. His strong team spirit ond individual efforts on the Plebe and battal- ion fencing teams were surpassed only by his desire for academic excellence. The town of Wrentham, Massachusetts, con be proud of its contribution to the Navy. Bills choice of a Mechonicol Engineering ma|or, while being one of his more memorable decisions, demonstrates his steadfastness in the face of odversi- ty His sense of humor stood him in good stead throughout his association with the Engineenng De- partment, and served as a source of amazement to his fellow inmates. Bills desire to excel was attested to by his presence on both the Deons and Sup s Lists which forecasts o high level of future success. ANDREW WIUIAM HOUCK Drew came to the Naval Acodemy from the land of the Huskies. An outdoorsman at heort, he found sail- ing suitable substitute for hunting and fishing, as well as considerably more enjoyable than joining the Worden Field crowd. Although it tried, the Executive Department could not subdue Drews independent spirit. He could often be found studying on a cold winter night under the worm rays of a sun lomp, munching freshly cooked popcorn, with his feet envel- oped by thick rug. A dogged devotion to the Engi- neering Deportment managed to get him through one of the more difficult fields of study. His presence made any party a lively event, and his personality and wit have captured many a young lass. Drews faith and interest in the fair sex olong with his love for our fellow service Academy was somewhat diminished, however, during second class summer. After gradua- tion, Drew plans on retiring from the academic com- munity and taking a cruise through the South Pacific. His spirit and devotion will moke him welcome in any wordroom. GREGORY RICHARD PATCH Greg |Oined the class of 70 as a result of being bored with his freshman year at a party school. A former NROTC student at Ohio State University, " Girp " brought with him to USNA his infomous collection of puns and an overflowing little block book. " Al- though Plebe year manoged to stifle the importance of the latter, tie could always be counted on to grace any get-together with the fruits of the former. As on upperclossmon, he is reputed never to have missed an occasion to drag. His antics, both intentionol and un- intentional, serve as o source of reloxation and amusement to all who knew him. An avid porticipont in intramurols, a member of the Antiphonol Choir, ond Math ma|or, " Girp " has decided to make Sur- face Line his option in June.

An avid sup- porter of company sports, he was more than ot home on the intramural soccer ond lightweight football teams. Having lived Navy Air day and night for four years since he came to the Academy, there is little doubt as to what branch of the service Tom will be going into after graduation. JACK RICHARDSON Jock came to the Academy from Anaheim, California. A fierce competitor, Jock won positions on the Varsity Pistol ond sailing teams, bringing home awards in both sports. Never losing to the challenge of academ- ics, he could usually be found in his natural habitat, the blue trampoline. With o minor in management, and despite all the bull sessions, frisbee, and dart gomes, Jock always managed to come up with the grodes. He was famous for many things including phenomenal luck on final exams, a satin lined B-robe a dislike for firecrockers, and one pair of grease shoes in three years. As a member of the Hop Committee, Jack ' s first years were spent filled with the local lovlies; that is until he met his greatest asset, that lovely blonde we oil knew as Lou. Jack will olways be remembered for his leadership and professionalism, and will be a welcome addition to those who wear the wings of gold. Five Hundred Thirty-two RICHARD STANLEY RUSCZYK Richard, affectionately known as Polck, come to the Academy from New Bnttoin, Connecticut, where he was coptain of his high school tennis team. At Novy, he maintained his interest in it and became a standout in intramural tennis and squash. Rich was a fierce competitor both on and off the courts. After encountering academic difficulties Plebe year, he was able to work up to stars by first semester second class year. Rich never restricted his activities to the seven mile limit. On cruises, he never missed a happy hour or a chonce to have a good time. But, alas, he met his downfall ot the Army-Navy game Youngster year, where he encountered a young lass from Westchester College. Rich ' s strong desire to excel and his stick- to-itiveness insure success in his endeavours following graduation. Navy line looks mighty fine. " DAVID GEORGE STRONG Born a Navy Junior in Portland, Oregon, Dave has made numerous pit-stops on his way to the Academy including such places as Newport, Rhode Island, Springfield, Virginia, Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Honolulu, Hawaii. A 1966 graduate of Robert E. Lee High School in Springfield, Dave now calls Albuquer- que his home, where his father, a retired Commander, and the rest of his family live. While at the Academy, Dave has been active in Plebe swimming, varsity crew, and was sub-commander of the Drum and Bugle Corps. However, he is remembered best among his classmates for his prowess with wires and with a T.V., the seven mile limit, o green machine, free Fri- days, and his collection of sounds " A weapons mo|or, Dave spent the better part of his years in stu- dious endeavor toward this end. However, of late, o young Annapolis miss appears to be consuming more of his time, and we feel sofe in assuming that upon Graduotion, when Dave and his MG disappear in a cloud of dust headed for Pensocolo, that that certain miss will be riding in the right seat. PETER ANTHONY SACHON Peter Anthony Sochon hails from Virginia Beach where he attended Princess Anne High School, and captained the football teom.

LARRY DAVID WALTERS Lars ' came to the Academy from Bradley, Illinois, after spending a year ot Northwestern University, Although he was a Bull major at heart, his favorite pastimes seemed to be the 400 yard swim, wires, var- ious dates, and a myriad of other courses that would be useless to a future ground pounder. When not on the basketball court or on the football field, he kept in shape doing pushups in the room or wrestling on the pad with Dole ' Never at a loss for words, his opinions were alwoys respected ... his stondords were high in |udging everything from girls to cigors. He could always moke us laugh, end, though he may not have realized it, kept our spirits up when we were homesick and lonely. Larry leoves many lifelong friends behind. EDWARD HUGHES WILLIAMSON After a year, Willie left drab, disciplined V.M.I, to enter the socially promising halls of the Naval Acade- my. Ever since that fateful day in June of 1966, he has been in hot pursuit of the fulfillment of this promise, that of having a socially active life filled with wine, women, and more women The wine has been fairly easy to obtain with the D. C taverns so closely avail- oble, but the women were sometimes hard to find. But, Will has been able to end up on top in many of his compaigns in the battle of the sexes and he ' s picked up on occasional battle scar to prove it. Being a great proponent of Navy Air, Willie will be making the scene down in Pensocolo People of Pensocolo, guard your doughters, your wives, your mothers, your sisters, and even your grondmothers . . . cause Willie ' s comin ' l Five Hundred Thir -three .- .

Five Hundred Thirty-five ' I ALLEN LEE BERGSTROM Al, also known as Berg, spent four years trying to keep his heart, soul, and body. The ensuing skirmishes left a girl in Pittsburgh with his heart, the choir with his soul. Navy with his hide, and Berg with a stack of receipts from Tilghman ' s. Berg got the |ump on his classmates by winning a Black-N Plebe year. Then after contemplating his future, he decided that Ap- plied Science would be the best preparation for Nucle- ar Power, but, as the semesters progressed, Al started to study Surface Line and EDO. Although Michelson Hall ' s instructors won several battles, he salvaged the war and even made the Superintendent ' s List once. Regretfully leaving service selection up to Admiral Rickover, Al concentrated on graduating and a career with Navy and his girl. Surely this relationship will produce at least one officer. DENNIS FRANCIS PATRICK BREEN Leaving the security of Conley ' s on Chicago North Side and undergoing a difficult transition into an officer and gentleman. Doc has emerged as a fine example of USNAs character " building. Never wishing to bring discredit upon the Brigade, Doc would fly " home on the tram disguised as a priest, or moke rounds of the local taverns as an Irish revolutionary on recruiting mission. Realizing that life was not all wine, women, and song, Doc discovered his true love - BOILERS!!! Viewing academics as a fountain of knowledge, he drank heavily and completed o ma|or in Marine Engineering. The years to come will find this motivated officer passing out Irish power stickers or giving rise to his favorite expression, I ' ll drink to that. " WILLIAM HENRY CARNES, JR. Originally from Arkansas, Hank came to Canoe U. by way of a holf a dozen states. While at Navy, he could be found at various times of the day and night playing his guitar, shooting pool, over at the fencing loft, building model boats, sleeping, and all too often, struggling with wires and modern physics - all in no particular order. A Bull minor, his desk was usually covered with history books, and the ' Cokemon " seemed to be working on term papers or projects con- tinuously. Hank originally planned on a career in Navy Line, but Youngster cruise, YP ' s, and second class summer changed his mind, and he ' s Pensacolo bound after graduation. With his friendly manner and quiet determination. Hank should prove to be on asset to Navy Air. rljk fl H H ' (diflott !0i ItHltllS • tint njoiivoi total Five Hundred Thirty-six % ¥ 1 . CHARLES CARVER DAVIS Known since Youngster year as Seadog, " C. C. has been one of the most likable fellows to walk our Hallowed Holls. A good athlete despite his small size, C. C was a fierce competitor. His desire to excel was not limited to the othletic fields. Many nights the Seadogger ' burned the midnight oil especially for the Engineering Department, his ma|or nemesis. A native of the Old South, C. C. was always ready to de- fend his home in South Carolina as the true gentle- man that he was. After three years of being our lead- ing advocate for Naval Aviation, he changed to Navy Line for at least one year after groduation. C. C. will continue to ask himself questions and will strive to fill his many goals. His great desire and good attitude will make him one of our finest Naval Officers. Those who really know him ore proud to call him classmate and friend. PAUL -y FALTEN, JR. Paul, or P. J , has always been a very affable, easy- go-lucky guy. Although P. J " is a little hard on walls, furniture, etc., it wasn ' t hard for him to ad|ust to the Academy environment. He could often be found in Isherwood Hall trying to make phone colls to Wash- ington on the computer. An Honor Rep first class yeor, P.

Gus, as he s known to his friends, decided on a mojor in Aerospace Engineering, and as was true in his other sub|ects, completed it without much difficulty. Stu was very humorous at times, but one of his |okes got such o bang, " that he was awarded a week ot the Main Office during 3 c June Week. Among his interests were the AIAA, a certain girl in New Jersey, and running Plebes (not necessarily in that order). Stu ' s plans include post graduate studies and a career as a Naval Aviator. His fomily bockground would indicate that he will excel in the service as his father was a Career Officer, and his brother presently flies for the Navy. JAIV ES ARCHIE HUNDERTMARK Jim come to the Academy after a one year stmt at NAPS. Once here,. he continued his academic non- excellence and manoged to stay one small step ahead of the Academic Board. Hoiling from sunny Hialeoh, Florida, Jim loved the water and all forms of athlet- ics, especially football and lacrosse. While never a varsity athlete, he nonetheless managed to enjoy himself by participoting in battalion level competi- tion. His favorite pastime, though, other than liberty, was doing battle with the pad monster. One could find him on almost any afternoon grappling with that much feared demon. His motto of learning to adjust to the adversities of life, ' and his easygoing sense of humor should help him in his chosen pipeline and throughout his life. KEVIN JOSEPH KELLEY Never one to turn down a drink, as his 100 demerits ond loss of Spring Leave during Youngster year at- tests, Kevin come to USNA full of hopes and ambition. Despite this trivial incident, he managed to ottoin his best QPR that semester and was also selected to be o member of the Plebe Summer Detail. His 8 to 4 |ob as MOOW, with no accountability, left him plenty of op- portunity to spend many enlightened evenings at the Castle. Once a striper, Kevin soon left the sweat group to become o proud member of the G-triple-T, spending many nights in the Paulson Room en|oying o nightcap with the other Three Stooges " With P. G. School and Nuclear Power to look forword to, Kevin is sure to find happiness and success throughout his Naval career. five Hundred Thirtv-seven JAMES MALCOLM LEVY A native of San Antonio, Texas, Jim came to the Acad- emy after spencJing his high school (Jays at Texas Mili- tary Institute. An avid participant m the intramural sports program, one could usuolly spot Jim ploying company soccer, lightweight football, and fast pitch softboll during his four years at the Academy. Run- ning wasn ' t one of his favorite postimes, however, as it usually kept him away from the company sports while he attempted to pass the running test. On the academic side, " Wires " proved to be his greatest nemesis, while he skated along pretty easily in his minor and favorite subject - mathematics. After groduotion, Jim has planned to head to Pensocolo, Florida, to begin a rewarding career in Naval Avia- tion. THOMAS ORIN MERRELL Known to his clossmates as " T. 0. " or Orin, " Thom- as 0. Merrell came to the Naval Academy after a year at Villonova. His interests in literature and the arts were unequaled among his classmates. His distin- guished personality was not limited only to the con- fines of Bancroft Hall as Tom excelled as on active member of the Masqueraders. Always willing to ■ fix-up " a buddy for the weekend, T. 0. become the ultimate in matchmakers at USNA. His biggest weak- ness, older women, would have been his downfall, but Tommy persevered and learned to spend his free time en|oying a fast gome of tennis or handball. True to himself, his friends, and his country, Tom will cer- tainly be fine officer, worthy of the associated distinctions of o Naval career. GARY ANTHONY MICHELSEN Gary come to the Academy from Lake Tahoe offer three years of college hopping and good times. Even after settling down to become a military man, he still knew how to en|oy his leave when he got it. Mickes knew when to hove fun and when to be serious. A good student despite his " sleep cures all evil " policy. He could usually be found in the afternoon on a bat- talion team playing handball or gymnastics. Although never quite achieving number one, he always hod a good time trying. Never a big striper, Mickes was often a leader in situations which required an undes- ignated leader to step forward. Wherever Mickes goes, he will be an able leader with the calm collected thinking of one with many years of experience behind him. Five Hundred Thirty-eight i " h LAEL JAMES PAULSON Loel IS one of our proud midwest products - or by- products - from Molly ' Waferford, Wisconsin. There he excelled in virtue, innocence, morality, temper- ance, and naivete. The Academy, along with his com- rades in the Gruesome Twosome Times Two, howev- er, have done wonders tor him, though he is on occa- sion still naive. The Paulson Room has seen many good times, and as everyone knows. Good Times ore Early Times. As for his love life, Loel concedes to the bfact that he has laid a few eggs, but that ' s about all. His impeccable personal appearance and flighty man- ner should moke him an impressive Aviator. Seriously, Lael ' s way of dealing with people and his dedication to the Naval Service assures him a fine career. Fly the friendly skies of United. " HENRY ANTHONY PYZDROWSKI, JR. " Drow " IS the Marine ' s Marine. Coming to the Acade- my from the Minneapolis suburbs with his heart set on Navy Air, his eyes transformed him into a wearer of the glorious green. While the rest of us were con- tent to wear the uniform Uncle Sam gave " us, Drow could sometimes be seen stalking the halls in his, as he preferred to coll them. Grins. " Studious he was, spending many hours under the tensor while his roommate slept. He was a born comedian, making many a study hour a raucous occasion. Though he did not particularly en|Oy his years on the Severn, he was well adapted to the environment and succeeded at all that he attempted. The Marines will be proud of him even if he doesn t believe in the recon cut. JOSEPH BAGLEY REID Joe come to USNA from the hallowed halls of St. Pe- ter s Prep in Jersey City, New Jersey. A serious angle player, he quickly became known as The Shark, " a name which stood by him through four years of inter- rupted study here ot Novy. Lending his talents to the Hop Committee Plebe year, he found no trouble drag- ging on restricted weekends as an upperclossman. Despite his Joisey ' accent, Joe soon communicated with his classmates and found himself a charter member of the G-triple-T and on inhabitant of the Paulson Room, " entitling him to nice weekends and girls in Washington, Baltimore, and Richmond. The gungy element of the group, Joe spent three weeks at Jump School ' and two years living it down. Joe ' s determination and affoble manner will serve him well in Navy Air. JOHN HOWARD REYNOLDS Like many of us, John came to the Academy straight from high school. With him he brought a great sense of responsibility to himself, the Navy, and our coun- try. He set before himself a series of gools and stuck to them throughout his stay. His quiet, studious na- ture, dry wit, and love of life earned the respect and admiration of all who really knew him. His receding hairline and devotion to the Morine Corps, his true love, earned him the nickname " War Eogle ' among close friends. From the first, John hos excelled in sports ond academics as he strove to prepare himself for a career in the Corps. We ore proud to coll him classmate, shipmate, and friend. FREDERICK LEE RICKABAUGH Frederick Lee Rickabough came to the Naval Academy from the small town of Elwood, Indiana. " Rick " turned down severol appealing scholarships from other schools in order to pursue o Novol career. Upon entering at the tender oge of seventeen. Rick feored ocademics would prove too rigorous a program. Fortunately, this fear hod little |ustification since Rick IS Deans List student in one of the most difficult ma|or s programs offered, Operations Analysis. Aside from his academic prowess. Rick was an ardent sportscar fan. He could discuss the merits of a fuel- injected V-8 glibly as most people talk about the weather. Rick ' s fine record here at the Academy coupled with his Naval acumenwill give theNovy one of Its finest leoders. five Hundred Thirtynine JEFFREY M. SCHOn Jeff came to the Naval Academy from Groton, Con- necticut. Never one to take tfie system or academics very seriously, Jeff had a lot of time to devote to other things, such as mixing a tall cool one out at the Castle. His favorite expression, " Two beers and I can be hod, " exemplified his easygoing manner. A fine competitive spirit and good athletic prowess on the athletic fields laid the basis for future social endeav- ors. In four years, Jeff ' s service selection was bounced around quite a bit, but he finally decided on a career in Navy Air. Whatever the future holds for Jeff, he is ossured the same measure of success throughout life that he en|oyed during his stay at the Academy. LAWRENCE EDWARD SHELLER, JR. Larry came to USNA after a successful year at San Jose State College. He decided it was time to change to the good Navy life. Plebe year was a strain on his good-timer attitude, but with the freedoms of an upper class, he did not let it hold him bock. After a slow start ocademicolly, Larry wos constantly show- ing up on the Superintendent ' s List and even managed to get on the Dean ' s List a couple of times. Larry at- tributed his success to " diligent " studying and plenty of well-deserved rest. Because of Larry ' s dedication, friendly attitude, and leadership ability, he will be a welcome addition to any wardroom. am »i ii( lera (fi .tOiing ( itoesoi sikeiiiit ■.On lot mot MTOiin M» in Five Hundred Forty K : ' f » j CHARLES MINOR STOUT A Navy |unior from year 0, " Chuck claims perma- nent resicJence in St. Louis, Missouri.

Upon entering his smoke-filled room, one could sense on atmosphere of deep concentration as he absorbed the knowledgeable contents of his physics texts. His intense pursuit of academic excellence earned him his honorable position on the Deon s List. However, he hod his own particular way of doing things. Never one to turn down a good time, Steve was always willing to indulge with friends in entering combat against those tall soldiers. He will olwoys be remembered for his ability to sleep when golden opportunities came knocking at his door. Physical fitness, fine music, and mellow tobaccos marked his interests.

He breezed through Plebe year with his only problems being which girl to spend the next leave with, and where the nearest bar was. With the onset of Youngster year, Bobby promptly began much hard work on a firstie beer gut and collecting demerits. Many long sessions on motel tabletops and hugging commodes were tackled by the Pittsburgh Kid. " At first an aspiring Aero |Ock, he later switched to Span- ish, when he found the academics taking too much time and interfering with his bridge playing. A man of many sports, Bakes was especially feared by the defensemen on the fieldball turf for his " look the other way, then blast em in the head with the boll " shot. And, no one can forget the man with the poorest base stealing record in company Softball, a record he was proud of simply because he never hit anything but doubles or better. Naval Aviation and the parties of Pensacolo have much ' to look forward to when Bakes |oins them soon after graduation. DALE EUGENE BREHM Dale, perhaps better known as " Ski, " among other nicknames, is an Air Force Junior who hails from An- chorage, Alaska. Oddly enough, his best grades were achieved during the rigors of Plebe year; however, he claims to have bit off more than he could chew by ma|oring in physics with a management inclined mind. His competitive spirit has made him active in company and battalion sports, but his true love was his frequent trips to the not too distant ski slopes of Pennsylvania. His pride and attachment to the Naval Academy moke him hesitant to bid " Aveready, Baby, " but the prospects of a future in Naval Air and getting married promise a challenging and rewarding career for this natural born lifer. SCOTT ROBERT BULFINCH On 29 June 66, Scotty B. ran into USNA and has been running ever since. Scott come to the Academy from Novato, California, where he spent his time either fishing for steelheod or running marathons. Not being able to fish at Annapolis, Scott was able to devote all of his time to running as a member of the cross coun- try and track teams all four years. After the Maryland cross country meet Youngster Year, Scotty came to be known as " Wrong Way Bulfinch. ' Another running experience Youngster Year was chasing a lass out in town.

ROBERT BLAKE CASTEEL, II Bob came to the Boat School from the small, " friendly town of Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Although un- able to maintain his high school grade average of 3.9, he never let studies get him down. He always kept first things first, and in Bob ' s cose his first thoughts were of his childhood sweetheart bock in Arkansas. Bob could be seen every afternoon in his sweats and iogging shoes wherever there was a Navy team run- ning. A real competitor, Bob ' s spirit and enthusiasm make him a valuable member of the Academy ' s cross country, indoor and outdoor track teams. Emphasiz- ing his management minor, he plans a career m Navy Line. With his friendly personality and sincere concern for others. Bob will surely continue to be on outstand- ing officer and a credit to our Modern Navy. JOHN STEPHEN CHANDLER Chands, who can claim many a state as his home, came to USNA straight from Crossiond High School in Maryland upon graduation. He was quick to earn fame as the company ' s leading fieldball scorer Plebe year as well as the three following years. Never one to let athletics get too far away, he could be found procticing in the hall during study hour. Life became very Wendy midway through Youngster year as good grades were not easy to come by. But a year later as the wind moved to Chicago, Chands could concentrate on other things beside studies. As a member of the company bridge club, he developed a new type of fi- nesse.

He was a scholar of ships, and the men who soiled them. He was destined to become a blockshoe ensign, but, Ad- miral Rickover beckoned him forward to the fleet of subsurface mochines. John will not be remembered for his othletic ability or for his instinctive Superin- tendent s List rating, but rother for his study hour and liberty habits which created such pastimes as vitamin pill rolling, poperboll kicking, and Guru nights. His enthusiasm for the Beatles was unsurpassed. He loved their music and knew their minds. He will always be aware of their influence. A philosopher and renais- sance man in every sense of the word, he will leave a lasting and cherished memory on any ground he may see fit to trod. Five Hundred Forly-frve JOSEPH FRANCIS GRAUL It was on June 29, 1966, that South Boston lost its most faithful resident, but it was also on thot day that the Naval Academy acquired a genuine accent and a genuinely different person. When Jody wasn ' t in the water, you could always find him searching for the ton, either on the blanket out in the sun, or in some hidden corner under the sun lamp. The ton, of course, was to impress the weekly flow of drags in his direction. To Jody, the coming of spring meant the exit of study hobits, the coming of more and more drags, and the constant dwindling of an already short bonk account. With all of his female problems, we ' ve always wondered how his QPR made it, but the suc- cess factor IS on his side now and will probably be there for many years to come as he assumes the duties. STEVEN BEDER HASH Steve must be the human equivalent of Snoopy, for beneath the quiet, smiling facade is a complex, tal- ented, dirty old man. The Naval Academy is |ust an- other duty station to Steve. He ' s o Napster from Toco- ma, Washington who has been stationed in Son Diego, Great Lakes, New London, More Island, and Boinbridge before he came here. Big Steve was a lightweight crew man until a strange allergy hit him. It only went away when he was some distance from Annapolis for a decent period of time. Steves spare time IS spent in indulging his favorite hobbies, sleep, girls, cars, and his homemade cannon. Ever cheerful and angelic looking, in spite of his age and imminent baldness, Steve will always be very popular and prob- ably underestimated, to his estimator ' s dismay. TIMOTHY WILLIAM LAFLEUR " Lefty " come to the Academy from a small boarding school in Wisconsin called Campion. However, be- cause of " Flower ' s " incredible prowess at shooting the bull " each of his many friends soon knew more about Campion then he did of his own high school, in his early years at the Academy, Tim was a party man, a playboy, but he succumbed during second class summer to that disease all playboy ' s dread - love. But his spirit did not abate, and he was still the life of a great many parties. Not a standout academically, " Pirate Pete " chose management as his minor and found this decision was far wiser than others he hod made in the past, for he both excelled in and enpyed it, Tim ' s ambition and spirit will surely gain him the fame he deserves.

Jim ' s Youngster year was nothing new for him, be- cause he hod whole yeor of practice. Second Class year wos a yeor of chonge. His grodes climbed until he was on the Dean s List and his playboy ways settled to a single girl from his home town of Indian- apolis. Jim wonts to go Navy Air ond wilj make o great pilot. If you visit him at Pensocolo, look for a bottle of Chivas Regol scotch, conservative suits in the closet, ond a Jaguor parked outside. A friend to oil, Jim will long be remembered by his classmotes. MICHAEL FRED MARTINO Neutrino cdme to Navy from the formlonds of south- ern Illinois. Whenever he is programmed with unusuol events, he hos a tendency to blow oil his circuits which renders him ridiculously confused. He is a basi- cally basic person with a bosic approach to all basic problems that he is asked to help his fellows solve. It hos been rumored that he does his best work while osleep, at least his most intelligent conversations occur while he sleeps. His true love is the Severn and the rocing shells in which Coach Ullrich and his crew ply those fabled waters. A lover of fast cars, fast bikes, fost oirplones, and fost women, Mike will be loining the ranks of Naval Aviators. The Navy will never be the same after this charger groduotes in June FRANK BAKER MELSON Baker is known most for his one track mind. Not that he IS narrow minded; he likes all types and shapes of his favorite hobby. Blondes, brunettes, or redheads are all fontostic to Baker A real party man, he has thrown o good number himself and hos been in the spotlight of many others. Never in academic trouble, Baker always seemed to have time to indulge in a good bull session or to moke plans for a big weekend. Athletically, Boker concentrated on crew with oc- cosional seasons on company sports. He plans to go Navy Air upon graduation, and with his spirit and de- sire he, with no doubt, will be one of the most oble pilots the Navy has JOHN BERNARD MONTGOMERY Monty, Novy |unior, colls Arlington, Virginio his home town now, although he has a worm spot in his heart for the beoches ond blondes of California. Though he never reolly considered any school other than USNA, his line career was cut short six months prior to entrance, when it was discovered he was par- tially color blind. With graduation opproaching, Monty has his sights on immediate law school ond a long, hoppy career in the Navy ' s JAG Corps. At the Academy, Monty is o model work-hord-ploy-hord middle with o sincere belief in the value of a Plebe yeor, and the natural ability to make the most of his liberty hours. His favorite extracurricular activities include meditating about a red GTO, shooting the breeze with the guys, and daydreaming about his GAG. Even with his deep interest in these activities, Monty occosionolly finds time to hit the books and pave the way for a dedicated Naval career. WILLIAM MARCH MOORE Having gone to a military high school, Bill quickly learned the ways of the Navol Academy. Recognized OS leader by his seniors as well as his classmates, Bill never had less than three stripes while at the Acodemy. Never having much success with the fairer sex, he vowed after two losses without a win, that he would never do it ogam, but then along come Sue. Bill is well known around the Brigade as the Mid who tried to kill himself second class year. Bill has good grades but poor eyes, so upon graduation, he will go to Pensocolo to become an NFO. If he con stay awoke long enough, Bill will become a great bockseoter. i Five Hundred Forty-seven fv - i . .1 t, Ij r DAVE ALEXANDER PIERSON Dave first established his reputation as an easygoing guy when he accepted a spoon Plebe year rather than have to run his firstie! Dave was not the wild party type on leave; he just quietly broke rules around here, like owning a car Plebe year and going to D. C, but Dave had a good reason, since he hod leave disease; every time he went on leave or a weekend, he got sick. Peers passed up the dollies in favor of academ- ics, sports, and Jaguars, in reverse order. Still waiting for the day when he can start flight school and his career in the Navy, Dave is now wrapped up in trying to find a cure for his unique disease. ALLAN HAROLD ROY On June 29, 1966, the Naval Academy tore " Alfie " away from the surf, sun, and blonde beach girls, giv- ing him bald head and a dixie cup to cover it in re- turn. During Plebe summer, he showed definite com- mand possibilites by barking out orders such as " left face - march. " Alf displayed his athletic prowess on many fields of glory. Realizing that o good frosted brew and losing weight for the wrestling team didn ' t go together, he turned to battalion lacrosse, football, and company fieldball teams where opponents all felt his fury. Many of us find it difficult to get |ust one minor while we are here, but Alfonse has completed three: wine, women, and weapons. After graduation. Barbie permitting, the parties and women of Pensa- cola will greet him. A f 1 % . • • Five Hundred FortY-eic t . » V: . % .

Salts has al- ways wanted to be an engineer and olmost made it by going to Georgia Tech for a year before he come to the Academy. Now he hopes the Navy will allow him to go into the Civil Engineering Corps. If they do, they will gain o fine career Naval Officer. DOMINICK WAYNE VISCO Nick came to the corridors of Bancroft Hall straight from the streets of New York. But, not being one to waste time, he sent his fence climbers " home and mode the tronsformotion to the military life. Becouse Nick was so organized, he was able to ta ke on many varied ond extra tasks. He became one of the best bridge players in the 29th company bridge club, and one of the all-time sleepers Yet, he always found time to plug and chug his woy to Superintendent s List. Nick will always be remembered for the helpful- ness, friendship, ond humor he extended to anyone. His ability to come to the logical conclusion and or- ganize himself is bound to make anything easy for him. He will undoubtedly be the best NFO in his flight class and a good man to hove in anyone ' s backseat ANTHONY JOHN WATSON A. J., barely moking the minimum age requirement for the Academy, reported along with 1400 odd mem- bers of the class of 70 on June 29, 1966. From thot day forword, Tony took charge and helped to unify his class OS class president for two years and as sec- ond class six-striper Such things as Brigade boxing, which come notural for a notive of Chicago, and bott rugby consumed the remaining time he hod when he wosn t ottending meetings or practicing with the J.G s He con always be heard wolking down the halls with a gleom in his eye ond o song on his lips. Academics come second to his other activities that concerned his class, despite his difficult Aero minor. But, Deans and Superintendent s Lists, along with let- ters of commendation and Rear Admiral Kauffmonn ' s sword ore |ust a few of the rewards that " Wats " has received in the years that he has been here. Tony could never get used to soying ships, ' so he plons to drive some of the Navy ' s nuclear-powered " Boots upon groduation GEORGE BRINE WHITTEN Brine come to the Navol Academy from his home in Hoddonfield, New Jersey, full of enthusiasm and love for the Navy. Remembering well his happy days as o Plebe, Brine sincerely wanted all the new undercloss- men to share in this experience. Known affectionately during Plebe year as the Lurch, " Brine continually disployed good sense of humor. Brine will alwoys be remembered for the spirit he showed at Navy foot- boll games, especially during his Youngster year He looks forward to his XKE, getting into the Immediote Masters Program in Aerospace Engineering, and flying Navy lets. One is assured that wherever he goes, G B. ' will carry with him a love of the Blue and Gold WAYNE LEONARD WOLFE DaPhox hails from Gibsonton, Florida. His background wos unique in detennining how his life as a Plebe would be led, with antics that kept his roommate and the uppercloss in stitches. He was long in leorning tact, voicing his honest opinion knowing all the while it would be detrimental to himself, and still was not eosily swayed. Fox was always known for his liberol learnings and ocquired the title of the company hippy. He was the unofficial liaison officer to St. John ' s Col- lege. On the athletic field, he was on ovid, ogressive, fieldboll fan, but still wos a lover of fine arts, spend- ing lots of time in museums, concerts, and the live theatre. In whatever field he chooses.

Mockey I Five Hundred Fitty-ooe ' %f DOUGLAS BAKER ALEXANDER Despite the many " affectionate " names ttiat Doug is called, he can always be counteci on to be in the midst of anything that involves a good time. Finishing Plebe year tow ards the end of Youngster year did not slow him down any, and we con all remember Doug ' s great organizing ability. From running out to Califor- nia for weekend, figuring out another " good deal " for his hair, conducting night skirmishes in the hall after tops, to pulling through and astounding all by saving his 2.00, Doug has managed to moke the most of Navy life. He has the distinction of being one of the few surviving double Napsters, and one of the old men " in the class. With such a vast variety of talents, desires to succeed, and an exceptional ability to lead, we can ' t see how Doug can do anything but the best wherever he goes. CALVIN DANIEL BAKER, JR. Bakes dedication to the Naval Service is equalled only by his dedication to o certain Southern belle. Ironical- ly enough, most of his leave is spent with his future brother-in-law in the company. Dan ' s Dark Ages dur- ing 2 c year were spent trying to figure out how to drog broken leg, which, incidentally, wos not his own. When the midnight oil is not burning well into the early morning. Bakes can be found in the middle of the nearest heated bull session on anything rang- ing from the ethics of Karate to the ability of the freshman to cope with a new system. Don constantly works towards perfection in all that he does, and with on attitude such as this, he cannot help but be a great success. MICHAEL JON BANGERT Mike spent a year fighting the profs at his hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan before coming to " Navy. " His two Youngster cruises, one as o University of Michi- gan NROTC and one of the LANFMIDTRARON speciols, will never be forgotten. If the former isn ' t bod enough, ask Bongs how it is to spend two weeks in the mud of scenic Jungle School. Mike, of course, liked full summers. It ' s for sure he ' ll never forget the detail or his dissertation on how to successfully plan a pil- low fight for maximum results. Mike proved to be o well-liked, hord working Aero ma|or who found a set of stars waiting for him after o fine first semester second class year. A love for running earned him a set of numerals from the 3rd Bott ' s undefeated, untied Cross-Country teom. As a future Aviator, the Navy will be glad to get their hands on such a fine leader. m ' J|. P|F 1 (JjBbL sis 1 " ST. L A k k a Five Hundred Fifty-lwo ' ,. " ' X 1 . PAUL VINCENT BRUCKNER The Steel City gave up a favored son when Paul come to Navy. An oceanography slash, he spent many long hours of the night working out with his books. A sports enthusiast at heart, Brucks spent many an af- ternoon dominating the boards ' or slugging it out with unfortunate co mpetitors in the boxing ring. In high school he earned three varsity letters and added a fourth here at Navy os hero of the old Plebe indoc- trinating system. Not to be outdone, Brucks has his sights set on the green uniform and P. G. school at Quantico. With his unassuming character and serious outlook on life, he will be o fine addition to the Corps. THOMAS THEODORE CARPENTER The silver wings of the Airborne as his mark of distinction and a flailing sword in hand. Craps thread- ed his way through the red tope of THE EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT to direct vast changes in the military environment of the freshman class. Never having much time for academics, Tom always managed to pull it out in the end. " His leaves always seemed filled with travel. Perhaps he realized the necessity to get It all m " before his glory-filled days at Quantico following graduation. Resulting from a radical inter- mixing of services in his family, there should certainly be interesting, good-time arguments by a pair of truly devoted military men after Tom ' s graduation. JOHN GEORGE COLLINS John hails from Son Mateo, California, where he hot- rodded, loved, and played football. He was |ust too old to handle the Varsity program at Navy. He was an intramural star in volleyball, handball, and won his numerals in malingering. " One of the original Wor- shippers of Waloch ' he did much to make famous the Zoomon Shuffle " and the Mexican people. John, a hard worker, was also a hard player. The one thing m the world he wouldn ' t want to do is moke someone angry. At the end of each set, he could boast with a smile you live with me and you pay the rent. ' John has fine future checJd. If he con memorize enough charts or get enough gouge, ' he may go into the NFO business for the Marines. TERRY scon DOUGLAS Coming from the slopes of Aspen with a year at C. U. ond on empty goat skin to his credit, Scott ' s interests soon turned from the natural slopes of the Rockies to the feminine curves of the eastern campuses. Not al- lowing an Aero minor to inhibit his fickle choice of weekly drags, Scott ' s playboy attitude has enabled him to slip out of many tight situations. His loss of six roommates to civilian line by no means indicates a negative attitude to the military service. Although the Air Force Academy is in his bock yard, T.S. sow the light early in his college days and set his goals at Navy Air. This desire complemented by his dynamic personality and natural ability to work well with oth- ers will guarantee his success as on aviator. CHARLES DEWEY ELLIOn, III Sigma Nu lost a fcJVonfe brother, and the University of Missouri lost a fun loving socializer, but USNA goined a fine oarsman and conscientious student when Dewey left the wide open country and clear blue skies around Kansas City, Missouri. An Aero mo|or, he spent many hours staring at his books, but nonetheless was in the pod by 2230, and found the time to manage the books for the ' 70 Lucky Bag, and to keep in touch with his multitudes of lovely young drags from places as for as Norway, Norfolk, and Kansas City. Having devoted most of his ac year af- ternoons to Navy Crew, Dee was always very proud to wear his well-deserved N. " His dynamic personality and authoritative leadership will assure him of suc- cess OS a future Naval Aviator. RICHARD KEAGY GRAHAM Rick, better known os ' Chico, " has dazzled Navy baseball fans for the past three years. When ragorm Rick IS not busy on the diamond, hi efforts ore con- centrated mostly on the revolution, (Viva Zapatoll), Chiquitos, tequillo, and of course acodemics and pro- fessional subiects. Rick s victories on the diomond are well remembered, but his toughest victories were at the Speakeasy, and most notably the one at Mickey Finn ' s in Philly. Whether it ' s o quick trip to " his place ' for a little Saturday night slumming, or a short trip out to California over George Washington ' s birth- doy. Rick always seems to be able to make the best out of his time. Rick s ability as a connoisseur of |ew- elry, especially diamond rings, would make Tiffany ' s pleased to have him as a regular customer. Rick ' s plans after graduation inc ude marriage and flight. Rick travels light, but travels right - fast Speed is Rick s bog, and the only woy is with Jets ond Vets. " Five Hurxired Fifty-three LAWRENCE HEYWORTH, III Skid came to the Academy from the beaches of Vir- ginia inspired by a family tree deep rooted in the tra- ditions of the Naval Service. After a successful year on the soccer field, it soon became evident that Skid ' s every effort would be spent in pursuit of the " Hey- worth curve, " as evidenced by his continuous contact w h the Academic Dean. As a result of Youngster cruise. Skid ' s chief area of interest during leave peri- ods came to be Charleston, South Carolina. His many close friendships throughout the Brigade attest to his congenial nature and good humor. Skid ' s rational ap- proach to command decision and determination will insure his success in the Navy Line. JAMES HERBERT HILL Hillby, a man of meager beginning, came straight from the land of torn clothes and tepees. Sand Springs, Oklahoma. Affectionately called ' ln|un " by his classmates, his four years at Navy were marked by an ever increasing QPR. Of course, there was no place to go but up. Jim was originally recruited for " raslin, " but has recently switched his interests to girls. He contends that there has to be a future in mixing the two. He really never was one to worry about nouns or verbs, and hence was often accused of speaking another language. Actually, he just " mur- ders " ours. Jim is a very easygoing and a firm believer in the adage ' where it lands is where it belongs. " Remember " there ain ' t no use in cleaning up, it ' ll just git dirty agin. " Jim is tough but understanding. He has outstanding leadership qualities and seems des- tined for great career in the Marine Corps. ROBERT JOSEPH KIMBLE The Computer ' s time was divided among mony activi- ties, however, the only studying he did was that of the bocks of his eyelids. Always willing and quite able to help mids through academic calamity. Bob was quite sought after at test time. Disproving the assumption that the amount of study is proportional to grades. Bob managed to earn three ma|ors - in physics, theoretical and applied math - and went on to dedicate a year of study to Implication Algebra in his mathematics trident project. Bob ' s outside activi- ties were varied and ranged from wargoming and chess to two years of managing the varsity crew. Al- though his afternoons were busy at the bocthouse, Robert found time to win numerals in battalion cross-country. Whether it be subsurface, surface, or air for Bob after his postgraduate school is fulfilled, there is no doubt that his logical and levelheaded manner will lead him far in every aspiration. rt ' iiw Hi !«5|i iWhi IjomK liieto m Sliigli ' fc, l tows DHJIen sMd InitlM him m, li h()Fo odmlii hiriol Itnywi iolfei wim Won km Five Hundfed Fifty-four ROBERT JEMISON MACKEY Bob The Smock is o Novy |unior from way bock, ond he hails from a high school in Fort Worth, Texas.

Working in the YMCA while in high school, Bob become proficient in the sport, and during his years here at the Boat School, he has developed this proficiency to on even greater degree. Aiming for the 70 World Games, Bob goes gymnostics all the woy, even up to dreaming about his routines insteod of girls. Never an academic genius. Bob kept his grades high enough to rest easy A good Christian, Bob was an active member of NACA, FCA, And OCU. Bob will be an outstanding addition to the Navy Air Team when he graduates. STUART JAMES MILLER " Straight Oor " hoils from the proud town of Huron, Ohio, where he started his career os on athlete and businessman. Participating in football, basketball, and tennis, Stu earned nine letters during his high school days. After entering the Academy, however, his true love was crew, in which he eorned three varsity letters. Never one to allow academics to interfere With business or his education, he was a very sought after mid after every leove period. Always looking for the good deal, Stu felt thot fortunes were awaiting him somewhere. Known as the man who liked good music, he tremendously en|oyed constant sounds of Percy Faith in his room. With his outlook of flair and adventure, his wife will find it hard to keep him from the trials of UDT TERRENCE CHARLES MORGAN Terry was a Marine from the moment he stepped into Mother B, and many a Plebe wandered to 18th Company looking for The Plug " and Corp Gouge. If you ever heard a thud and AIR BORNE!, " you knew Morgs was coming. A Connecticut Yankee, he contin- ued his pigskin career by ploying ISO ' s, and the sum- mer would find him banging heads on the rugby field. Never a whiz with the books, Terry summed up his own academic status by saying, " I ' m minoring in For- eign Affoirs and ma|oring in graduating " Coupling his academic excellence with his noturol aggressive- ness, Morgs should hove no trouble in realizing his dream of becoming top officer in the ranks of the Corp. DAVID JOSEPH MORRISON From South Ploinfield, New Jersey, Dave came to Novy after a year of college ot Seton Holl University. An Aerospace ma|or, Dave spent many hours behind the books os was evidenced by the fact that the lights were never off in his room. He was reworded for his efforts by being a regular on the Superintendent ' s List. Through his academic achievements, he soon be- came prime source of gouge " for the company. An avid sports fan. Dove found time to participate in in- tromurols, and though he was never a member of a championship team, he always showed a lot of drive and spirit in competition on the athletic field. Dave was always ready and willing to help a friend no matter what sacrifice he was required to make. Look- ing forward to becoming o Naval Aviator with the possibility of on immediote master ' s program in Aero, Dove will moke on outstanding addition to the officer ranks of the Navy. DENNIS GEORGE MURPHY If you happen to be awoke between midnight ond reveille around Mother B, chonces are good thot you will find Murph in front of his books fiercely battling the academic department for his stars. In the after- noon, he is busy lending his nautical skills ond " social groces ' to the ocean rocing team, a sport that hos token him from Halifax to Bermuda. An overload of classes, military duties, and occasionally sleep (in that order) claim the rest of his time. Meanwhile in the hall, his vast knowledge of USNAR has earned him the title of Reg Book Murph. " These facts, however, don t do justice to the question, what kind of person is Murph? He s a mon who believes in the rules de- spite numerous Ns; a mon of principles who trusts onfy the gouge. He is an individual of high morale, who IS well liked by all. Fact: Nuclear Power will be lucky to inherit an officer of Dennis ' caliber. RONALD JAY MURRAY What on Air Force |unior wanted with the Novy will always remain o mystery to Ron ' s classmates. Com- ing to the United States Naval Academy from San j n- tonio, Texas, Ron brought only a smile and a kind word for everyone. At the beginning, Ron hod a battle With his grodes, but not at the expense of his sleep. Most every afternoon he could be found struggling with the pad monster " until chow coll. While at the Academy, Ron participated in battalion fencing, com- pany fieldboll, and Plebe indoctrination. Ron also sang in the Antiphonol Choir, Chapel Choir, ond the possogewoy. A fine Christian, Ron was an active member in OCU and NACA. Unless the Air Force gets him. Naval Aviation is gaining on outstanding officer. five Hurxlred Fifty-five LESTER DOW NEEDHAM Long and tall, Dow came to the Naval Academy straight from high school in Memphis, Tennessee. Never one to call a single town his home, Needs proudly followed his father, who is olso in the Navy, through many parts of the country. Being energetic and determined, Dow has tried about half of the sports offered at USNA. A true friend at any time, Dow would volunteer his service? to aid anyone, any- place, anytime. His appreciation of good music al- ways allowed him to study with the latest hits at all hours of the night. Definitely more interested m the fairer sex than in academics, Dow always found it hard to find a free weekend. With his approach to life, Navy Air can only benefit. FREDERICK GEORGE SCHOBERT Fred came to the Naval Academy, and its unusual cli- mate from the sunny environs of San Bernadino, Cali- fornia, After a rather slow start and a strenuous Plebe year, he found his niche at USNA as a management ma|or. Besides being a steady academic performer, his knowledge of sports and his love 6f competition, especially as a boxer, found him well suited for life as Mid. His attitude of ' non sweat, " and his quiet manner kept him out of the limelight, allowing him to en|oy himself and to sit back and survey the situa- tion at hand. Derived from his tenure at Navy ore many solid concepts of leadership, that few people attribute to Fred. Whether it be for five or twenty, be It blue or green, Fred will be a credit to his service selection. PAUL ABERNATHY WILSON The Bear " migrated to the Naval Academy from Sewickley, Pennsylvania, right out of high school. Paul has had his ups and downs as far as grades go, but has nevertheless held on to his near 3.0 cum. Al- though his athletic skills are far from Olympic, he still supported his teams as manager and player. Paul ' s two aspirations ore a commission and a motorcycle to get him around. The latter along with some other unique ideas has earned him quite a reputation, on endowment that his good notured attitude was quick to accept. Always a true friend and a person highly motivated towards the Navy, Paul should find it easy to do his port for the Service. With his constant supply of " funnies " and his ever-present love of fast trans- portation, the " Bear " will never let the Navy become dull and lifeless, and for his efforts he will surely be richly rewarded JAMES LEWIS YOUNG, III Jim, like most of us, came to the Academy o civilian at heort. Coming directly from his home on the range in Conroe, Texas, Younger traded his horse for a YP and was loving it. After living in death oily " Plebe year, he was ready for the academic world and a ma|or in management. He only hod to double over- load three semesters and he was loving it. Whether shooting some hoops on the basketball court, round- ing the bases in fast-pitch, or sports ineligible to sell ads for the LOG, Younger always displayed great sportsmanship and on even greater sense of humor. Never one to pass up a chance to " yuk it up, " he was company humor rep as well as Honor and Class Policy representative. Green is his favorite color. Marine Green that is, and after graduation he will report to post-graduate school at Quantico. As an Officer of Marines, Jim will prove himself both able and dedi- coted, and he will be loving it.

Weekends, Spring and Fall, he might hove been in any yocht club on the East Coast or in the Mid-West representing Novy on the Soiling team. When not rooming the East Coost bolstering Navy ' s reputotion, C. L. could be found buried in books, applying his formulo for keeping the stars he earned Plebe year. However, all wos not work, for on oc- casional young lady would tickle Lee ' s fancy ond cor- ner the market on his liberty Born ond raised outside Atlanta, Lee now hoils from Panama City, Florida, but it con still be soid that The Mouse " is a real Georgia Peach. We wish him foir winds and following seas in oil his endeavors. JAMES CLYDE ARNOLD Hailing from Dallas, and the great state of Texas, Jim traded his cowboy boots and hot for o connon and a footboll helmet when he come to USNA. A man of varied, and numerous interests, Jim could be seen on many a fall afternoon starting at left linebacker for Jock Cloud ' s 150 lb. football team, as well as being o member of the cannoneers. In the spring, Jim could count on his spore time being token up in the pursuit of the passing grade, but his winters were reserved for his oll-time favorite activity, as o varsity member of the swimming sub-squad. Although academics never quite forced Jim to give up his Youngster after- noons, he did manage to make the Superintendent ' s List once. Jims fine officer-life qualities, outstanding personality and quick wit will stand him in good stead no matter where his coreer moy lead him in the Naval Service. KENT LEE BLYTHE Kent was born and raised in Indiana where he ottend- ed a year of college before entering our esteemed in- stitution. It has been his lifetime ambition to be o graduate of USNA, and he is still hoping and striving to ottoin thot ambition. Although Kent sometimes has difficulties with his studies, his social life con never be said to be locking, with a girl in every city or port. Kent s biggest asset is his worm personality and ever present cheerful smile. If anyone ever needed ony- thing, they knew that Ken would always be willing to help. Probably going surfoce line, Kent will odd o lot to the ranks of the Novy. DAVID REID BURROWS D. R. hoils from Brookfield, Wisconsin, where he was National Ment-finolist. Upon entering the Acad- emy, he did not slow his academic pace. Being on electrical engineering major, D. R. " spent many nights burning the midnight oil. Consequently, he has been on the Superintendent ' s List every semester, and has also mode the Dean ' s List several times. When it comes to academic assistance, many a classmate has benefited from his can ' t soy no ' attitude. As for the intramural sports program, he has been o great addi- tion to the volleyball, fieldboll, and soiling teams. Besides finding time for these sports, he porticipoted in extracurricular activities including the radio club and ontiphonol choir. Novy line and postgraduate school ore omong the goals that he hopes to attain. five HuDdred Sixty-one »?l PHILIP THOMAS CAHIU Phil left the sacred halls of a Chicago seminary to enter the grey walls of the " Granite Monastery, " ontj the transition wos on easy one for him. With his com- puter-oriented mind, he became famous for his math- ematical deductions and extractions. Merlin the Ma- gician, " as he was respectfully dubbed, was not quite Olympic material, but he will win his N Star as Navy ' s track manager. Phil has contradicting visions of Sur- face Line and a PhD, but how long will the Navy allow man with a doctorate to while away his hours in a destroyers engine room? In any event, Phil is sure to find his place wherever he goes. ROGER WESLEY CARR, JR. Born and raised a rebel, Roger hails from Smiths, Ala- bama. He attended a year at Auburn before deciding that the Navy was the life he really longed for, so he pocked his bogs and headed for the Crobtown Cam- pus on the Severn. Beginning with Plebe Summer and later the ensuing academic years, Roger was faced with the endless challenges of the academy life which he met with exceptionally high officer-life qualities and abilities. Besides being one of his doss leaders, he maintained on outstanding record in both academics and professional knowledge. Easygoing and with a friendly smile for everyone, Roger found many friend- ships which will remain with him for a lifetime. Roger presently plans to channel his efforts and abilities into the Rickover Program as one of USNA ' s Nuclear Power Candidates. As far os the Academy is con- cerned, Roger is one of its " Sure Bets. " - « i ■ V ■ . N Five HurxJfed Sixty-two t I; L ■ ■- ' ' JOSEPH DAVID CARROLL Hailing from the backwoods of Oregon, Joe upheld fannily tradition in coming to USNA, following on older brother from the Closs of 66. Country Joe, as he was offectionotely known to his classmates, man- aged to distinguish himself in his four years at the Academy as the mid most likely to eat himself to death, spending many an hour in the messholl and steerage. Aside from this rather dubious honor, how- ever, Joe did manage to redeem himself on occasion in his many and unusual ' dealings with the opposite sex, and could always be relied upon to offer some friendly advice to the lovelorn. Active in company ath- letics, Joe proved himself o real competitor during his four years at NAVY, and left no doubt in anyone s mind of his future success in the service of his coun- try. LARRY THOMAS DAVIS Tommy, offectionotely called Frog, " for a reason still unknown, come to the Naval Academy after graduation from Northern High in Durham, North Car- olina. The only Plebe to hove been issued " stars, he has never been without them. Not the type of person to choose the easy path, Tom applied his academic tolents toward achieving a ma|or in Theoretical Math. The few moments he is not in the books, he is tutor- ing a classmate, struggling with the Green Monster of the instruction pool, or trying to kindle a spark of love in some Southern Belle. But, where most mids hove pictures of girls or cars, L. T. has submarines, planning to go to Nuclear Power School and beyond, until he drinks to his Dolphins. Tom brings to the Si- lent Service and the Navy not only the knowledge and professionolism of an outstanding officer, but also the determination and pride of a respected man. GERALD VINCENT ELLINGWOOD A product of that thriving fishing metropolis of East- port, Maine, Jerry was brought up in the environment of true manner. His love for the sea carried him through two years ot the Maine Maritime Academy before setting his sights for Annapolis. Duke " holds the not so envious distinction of hoving seen the rigors of two Plebe and Youngster years. From the day he arrived at USNA, Duke never lost any of the enthusiasm he brought with him. An easygoing guy, he got olong with everyone and was always willing to help someone out of a |am. Although not setting any records academically, Duke always managed to come up with the big grade that kept him over 2.0 every semester. An oceanography minor, the Duke will prove big asset to the Destroyer Novy. ROGER LON EMCH From his birth in Youngstown, Ohio, Lonnie was the normal child, but alas, he sow a little bit of that Ma- rine Green ' one day and hasn t been the same since. From the first day as o Plebe, Lonnie has aspired to the officer ranks of the Corps and with that goal in mind prepares himself at Navy. Interested in firearms and hand weapons, Lonnie continued his interest as one of the top men on Navy s rifle team. His basic line of studies in ocodemics has been Operations Analysis, but all IS not labor, and Spidermon finds ways to use those few limited weekends to good odvontoge. Beware evil villians ond tyrannical misdoers against the |ust ond good, for soon a Morine Spidermon " will be on the prowl! KENNETH CHARLES FREEMAN Ken, or Freems to those who knew him, was a man of mony distinctions. He was known as the only member of Nineteenth Compony to live in a national park, that IS in Hot Springs, Arkansos. He was also famous for his consistent ability to lose money when betting at the horse races. On the other bond. Ken distin- guished himself by attending Jungle Warfare School and by capobly serving as varsity manager of both the Pistol and Tennis teams. His quick wit and sense of humor hove won him many friends and shall stand him in good stead no matter where his career may lead him. JERRY MICHAEL HAGGERTY Jerry came to Annapolis from Heleno High School in Montono, where he excelled in cross-country, bosket- ball, and academics. The Naval Acodemy did not slow him down a bit. Jerry won his letter in lacrosse his third class year when he did quite well in the class- room, by making Superintendent s List. He also distin- guished himself in other ways and was awarded the famous block N while o Youngster and narrowly missed subsequent awards on many other occasions. Jer hod quite a way with the girls, too, but somehow always managed to stay out of the binding entongle- ments that trapped " so many of the rest of us. His quick smile and easygoing personality moke him a welcome componion in any group. Jerry ' s fine profes- sional qualities should stand him in good stead while pursuing a career in Aviation. Frve Hundred SixTy-three GEORGE HENRY HALVORSON life with George hos never been dull. Whether he is exploring o liberty port, writing a girl, or |usf pursu- ing a cold brew, every day is a new adventure- Many trails were blazed in his four years at USNA, Some were hard to trace across Annapolis harbor or along Route 50, while others led to a well known place on 4-1. In athletics George played on important role as number one man on the Battalion handball team. During the Fall and Spring, he was a starter on the company football and battalion squash teams. After graduation George plans to turn his energy and tal- ents in the direction of Navy Line, following in the footsteps of his father. His friendly nature and sense of duty will make him a valuable asset to the Navy ' s ships at sea. JOHN PAUL HERTEL Although John entered the Academy from the not so salty ■ city of Burlington, Iowa, he brought with him a desire and motivation to not only get something from life here, but to give something in return also. If John wasn ' t writing a letter to his girl or studying, he was undoubtedly engaged in an extracurricular activity aimed at improving the Academy. When he managecJ to find time for academics, John did quite well in that department too. Even though the Skinny " depart- ment never was entirely on John ' s side, you would find yourself more than likely right if you bet on his name being on the Superintendent s List by the end of the semester. A well rounded individual, John ' s the kind of man who will leave a little port of himself be- hind wherever he goes - and eoch place will be a lit- tle better for it. ROGER DEAN JAMES Union, Oregon ' s loss was the Naval Academy s gam in the person of Roger James, Rog left behind the com- forts of Union High and his O.A.O. (who s the reason he IS never seen dragging) and plunged info the rigors of USNA. While keeping his head well obove the aca- demic waters, Roger has added his othletic excellence to nearly all company sports and found time to get more than his share of sleep, too. If he con find a cockpit long enough to fit his six-foof-three frame, Roger will go Novy Air - his greatest ambition after graduation. And if his skill with the stick of on F-4 matches his skill with a popcorn popper. Union ' s loss will be on outstanding asset to the airborne branch of the Fleet. JOHN DAVID KELLEY John come to Navy from high school in Tulsa, Oklaho- ma. From the start of Plebe summer, it was evident that he could take anything Navy hod to offer and excel in it. From the beginning John strove to be the best. If anyone ever needed academic help, John was the one to ask, and he was never too busy to help out. He always found the time to help others; so, there was never quite enough for his own prefer- ences. There often were a couple of those Dean ' s List weekends that weren ' t used. John worked hard and in the afternoons if he wasn ' t studying or in the wres- tling loft where he was o varsity manager, he could be found now and then in his pod. Since his hopes are for Nuclear Subs, it is the universal opinion of all who know John that Admiral Rickover will be getting one of the best. EMMEn JOHN LANCASTER, II The ear-to-ear smile from Phoenix, Arizono, Emmett has always been a friend to all. He spent a year at Phoenix College before coming to USNA. He has very high hopes of flying, hence his minor is Aero. Emmett got the nickname ' Burt " from his abilities in Plebe year happy hours. Football posters also brought out his artistic talents. Volleyball kept him busy in the fall, company lights in the winter, and company knockabouts in the spring. One of the original Brookers, ' Emmett always got amazing chow pack- ages from home. When not helping someone with studies, or off pursuing one of his many activities, Emmett could be found resting his eyes for Navy Air. With his quick wit and ready smile, Emmett con look forward to a very successful future wherever he may be. HENRY JAMES MACLAUGHLIN Following in his brother ' s footsteps, " Mac " come to the Academy after a brilliant career in soccer and la- crosse at nearby Catonsville High School in Baltimore. With tremendous ability, Harry continued his brilliant career during his four years here His name could be regularly found on the Dean ' s List, and as he took off on his weekends a large crowd of friends managed to follow him up to the MocLoughlin Inn. On the lacrosse field, few could outdo Harry ' s remorkoble stickwork and shooting. During Plebe yeor, Horry had 8 goals in one game and has been the only Plebe to ever threat- en the scoring record of Jimmy Lewis. His success in the next three years was equally impressive as he continued to lead Bildy ' s boys. Despite all of his suc- cess Mock will be remembered by his friends and classmates os o likable, all-around greot guy. Five Hundred Sixty-four i ' V ■ " ' . ' iiray DAVID CONRAD PALLESEN Dave, the old man, hails from West Oronge, New Jersey. After having spent four semesters at Cornell ond an additional year as an honest to goodness civie. Dove decided that life wosnt exciting enough for him, so he come to USNA to be a Naval Officer. This was quite a natural choice for him since he wos born on the crest of a wove " and all that, and has been sailing oround on boats since he was born Being as nouticolly minded as the Ancient Manner makes him a perennial member of the shields team. But sailing is not Dave ' s only bag; he was a member of the 1969 brigade championship heavyweight touch football team, and is always willing to lend a hand if it s problems you got. " Dave ' s only gripe about going out into the fleet is that frigates don ' t have sails any more. JOHN GREGORY ROBINSON John arrived at the Naval Academy already tanned from the suns of Waikiki, trading the waves of Ha- waii for the bonks of the Severn. After the initiol shock of Plebe summer faded, John blended in with scenic Annapolis, and applied himself completely to the many problems at hand. Always very active in ex- tracurricular activities, he was an enthusiastic mem- ber of the B H.M.C, and the Century Club. A quick thinker, fast talker, and speedy runner, he quickly became friends with officers and fellow midshipmen alike. With organization and planning, his strong points (as many Cadets and Mids from Hawaii will ot- fest) should be o strong asset to the life he so ear- nestly respects, JOHN ROBERT SCHROT John came to the Academy from lock Haven, Pennsyl- vanio. In high school he was active in varsity sports, specifically wrestling and tennis. He brought his en- thusiasm for sports to the Academy with him and has wrestled on both the Plebe and varsity teams. John is management minor whose favorite activity is plan- ning a good party. His quick wit and excellent sense of humor hove earned him a lively reputation and many friends. Leave periods usually find him heoding for home or D. C. in his brothers Falcon. John hod o somewhot unsuccessful Youngster Cruise Neverthe- less, he intends to go Surface Line. His common sense, enthusiasm, and friendliness ore a few of the quali- ties that ore bound to open many friendly doors for John wherever he goes As a Line officer he will be a great success and a voluoble asset to the Novy. Five Hund ' ed Sixty-five .f ' a DANIEL QUINN STOCKHAUS During four years of academic misery at USNA, Don hos found one true friend among ffie books, uniforms and traditions tfiat make up Canoe U: his rock. So en- viable is his record, in fact, that visitors to his room have seen little else but his bright red hair sticking out betw een sheet and blanket. When not fighting the wires department and eluding the long-fingered clutches of his friendly blue nemesis, our long-legged cowpoke from Flagstaff, Arizona, could be found de- fending the compony ' s honor in volleyball, light- weight football, or softball, on one of the darker cor- ners of some night-spot in Georgetown on one of his not infrequent runs, or trying to find some devious method to finance his beloved bike. Some destroyer wardroom will find Dan a welcome addition to its company. DAVID GENE STORER Dave hails from Orlond, Indiana where he graduated from Orlond High School in 1965. After a year of sea- soning, he left home for the Naval Academy, entering with the rest of us on June 29, 1966. At the Academy Dove concentrated his academic efforts in the wide open field of oceanography. His activities centered primarily around intramural basketball. Dave ' s outgoing personality and friendly nature provided him with friends throughout the Brigade. Until second class year with a certain Indiana lass curtailed his ac- tivities somewhat, Dave was rarely found in the hall on weekends. After graduation, Dave plans to con- tinue spreading cheer in the field of Aviation, though his eyes will limit him to NFO. CAMERON KENT VANTREASE Not so typicol of a small town boy. Com found those greater things in life - wine, women and song. In fact, his phenomenal luck in locating members of the fairer sex left many a classmate envious. Not limiting himself to pleasure alone, Cam could often be ob- served conscienciously applying himself to his aca- demics. As a result, his name often appeared on the Superintendent ' s List. Due to his belief that from mid- night to reveille was only six seconds, afternoons found the books aging on the shelf ond Cam in his favorite position - horizontal between two pieces of linen. Consequently, Hospital point was rorely hon- ored by his presence. Cam ' s destiny may not be C.N.O., yet any goal he may set for himself is well within his grasp. CHARLES JOSEPH YASH Chuck came to the Naval Acodemy directly from War- rensville Heights High School in Cleveland where he graduated third in his class. A devoted athlete, Charlie ployed football, wrestling, baseball, and golf in high school, coming away with nine letters. Continuing his pursuit of athletics here at the Academy, he was o member of the Varsity Baseball Team and could often be seen at the golf course on Sunday afternoons. When not busy with sports, he could usually be found pursuing man ' s number one pastime, either on a weekend in Baltimore or at the hops in Smoke Hall. In addition to all this, Charlie still managed to keep well ahead of the Academic Departments through hard work and diligence. A never-soy-die competitor, he holds the respect and admiration of all who know him and can be assured of a successful and rewarding career. I I I I Five Hundred Sixty-six -u .

He olso went in for scuba div- ing ond occasionally you could see the flash of a green Harley on the Annapolis bockroads hidden by a vaguely familiar rebel. Bill s dedication to academics was evidenced by the dim glow of o tensor which burned late mfo many nights. All of this study went into a ma|or in Naval Architecture which. should yield many benefits not only for Bill, but also the Navy LOWELL RONALD GULP Sparky, the only name he goes by, was born in Hozle- ton, a mining town in Pennsylvania. He is a Navy |un- lor and has lived almost extensively on the East coast. His favorite subjects are planes and flying, and he is often heard relating stories of his father ' s flying ex- periences and showing his prowess of knowledge of planes. He has a continuous struggle with the elusive 2.0 mark and the end of semester is always inter- esting. He is very sports oriented, but is o subject to in|unes and has gotten the Johnson and Johnson award for using more tape than anyone else. If he con |ust manage to sidestep the Ac Board and if his supply of tape holds out, he will moke a fine pilot and a good Naval Officer. EDWARD JOSEPH FAHY, JR. ' Berto " come to us from Valle|0, California, with on outstanding knowledge of the Naval Service, a friend- ly personolity, and a desire for some of the better things in life. Ed divided his time between playing linebacker for the Poolie " defensive squad and defenseman for the Weem s Creek Lacrosse Club Dur ing the week, he could always be found reading o motorcycle magazine or preparing for the weekend " load. " Never one to be at loss for lines, Ed has shocked mony a young lovely into wanting to know more of that mind of his. During second doss year, Ed hod the distinction of owning the only waterborne cycle. Graduation will find Berto heading into Avio- tion and bochelorhood. In Ed, the Noval Service is gaming o fine person and an outstanding officer. DAVID LEE GRAHAM Coming to the beloved bonks of the Severn from the West Coost, Dovo mode the best of his four yeors here at USNA He brought with him many varied in- terests, including o love " (?) for electronics. He seemed to olwoys be either helping somebody repair their stereo or advising them on the merits of various brands. He chose to mojor in this field and even mcn- oged to carry an overage well over 3.00. But, the omozine thing obout this is that he spent most of his time either in bull sessions or in the rock. A very good competitor. Dove always gave his full effort on the athletic fields with the intramural teams. This same competitive spirit will enable him to advonce rapidly in his chosen field of Navy Air. Five Hundied Sixty-nine Vi i BRUCE RODNEY HARRISON Known by the Brigade as the " California Dreamer " on WRNV, Bruce came to Navy from the University of California, Irvine, where he was majoring in chemis- try. Since he grew up in Long Beach, he is a California man at heart from the sounds he enjoys to the girl he plans to morry. Bruce rowed Crew for three years, one at Irvine and two at Novy, before the academics of Second Class year became too much for him. Days you con find him in the Eighth Wing basement at the offices of WRNV, where he spends the time he isn ' t playing o guitar he borrowed. Upon graduation, Bruce plans to go Navy Line, hoping to start married life based in his state where he con recapture his lost sun- tan. JOSEPH GERARD HENRY " Little Joe, " known to his family and really old friends as " Jody, " came to the Academy from Seton Hall Prep in South Orange, New Jersey. After compil- ing on excellent record in all areas in prep school, Joe got off to a slow start during Plebe Summer, but by the time academic year rolled around, he had the sys- tem figured out and succeeded in making the Dean ' s and Superintendent ' s Lists without too much effort. While Joe has been on the wrestling team for three years, he hasn ' t usually cracked the starting lineup, mainly because the opposition can ' t find anyone small enough to wrestle him. Joe has on easy carefree attitude, which along with his outgoing personality and sincere interest in people, moke him an easy per- son to know, and a dependoble and lasting friend. RONALD DUANE HUDDLESTON Ron, or " Huddso " as he is usually called, came to Mother Bancroft armed with a southern accent and a Navy smile, both of which helped him moke lasting friends easily. In the pursuit of " higher learning, " courses involving Ron ' s major academic interests, moth and computers, came relatively easy to him, but he has few kind words for the Bull and Wires Depart- ments. Ron ' s participation in sports was limited to in- tramurols after o season with the Plebe soccer team, because of knee in|uries incurred in high school, but it didn ' t seem to slow down his pursuit of the opposite sex. As yet undecided between Navy Line and Navy Air, Ron ' s natural leadership and his willingness to extend his friendship to onyone will make him on outstanding officer, and an asset to the Fleet. Five Hundred Seventy t - MICHAEL McLEOD JOHNSTON Moving to Soufhworth, Washington, at an early age, Mike enioyed a life of bliss until thot fateful doy in June of 1966 Though he is on outdoorsman at heort, he was an Academy man by choice. His friendly, help- ful nature soon placed him at the top of his company. While this achievement was accomplished with rela- tive ease, he found that academics did not succumb to his will quite as readily. Unwilling as he was to push that coast button, Mike often fought his studies long after others hod called if a night. No matter what task the Navy gives to him ofter graduation, it con be assured that Mike Johnston will approach it with that some utmost effort he has always demonstrated. GEORGE WILLIAM KARCH Buckeye Bill at 21 had little trouble odiusting to the rigors of Plebe life. Once a Youngster, " Lurch, " a na- tive of Columbus, embarked on his self-designed pro- gram of R R. In fact for the next three years we wondered whether the Old Man " was awake or in a state of semi-consciousness awaiting his next bout with the Pod. Bill, a former NAPSter, never ollowed studies to interfere with his spare time. When not sleeping, this included Company volleyboll and soft- ball and of course dragging on weekends. It was said if Bill had one blind dote, he hod a thousand - But then, variety IS the spice of life. Navy Line should be proud to know they ' re receiving a mature and dedi- coted officer in the person of Bill Korch. WILLIAM MclVER KEMP Bill, better known os Cheetah " by all the " boys, " hails from the sewer of the South, namely Charlotte, North Carolina. His reputation as being a stud in swimming in high school corned over to his Academy yeors where he lettered Youngster year specializing in the butterfly. Academics hove not proved a problem for Bill. However, academics and athletics are of less importance than his favorite pastime, mainly going out for the load. " During the off-seoson, he is a fa- miliar figure ot the biggest parties where his brilliant sense of humor prevails and serves as a catalyst to any innocent " bystanders. Navy Air being his planned career, we shouldn ' t be surprised to see Bill at the famous Happy Hour ' s in Pensocola. We will al- ways remember the Cheetah " and his famous esco- pades in chapel. JEFFREY RAY UF SCOMB Jeff IS a Navy Junior who presently colls Sparks, Nev- ada his home. He came to- Navy after o year of fabu- lous military training at Morion Military Institute. Here at Navy, where he is referred to as " Lips " or Scummer, " Jeff can be found struggling with Aero during o very limited amount of time. Every weekend, he has a marathon T. V. watching contest in the Wordroom. Truly the time from after his last doss until evening meal, which is spent in the pod, is the most sacred time of the day for him. If anyone ever has non-ocodemic question, Jeff con olwoys give them on answer, even if it isn ' t always the right one. Jeff hopes his vast knowledge of Aero will hold him in good stead as on NFO. CLARENCE WILBER MAYOH, III Coming to USNA after a year in the Naval Reserve, Jay knows the value of a well-rounded life. He is best known to all the Brigade as the Smilin ' C. W. " on WRNV. One of the minority who feels boats " were not oil thot bod, " Joy spent o year and a half in the YP Squadron. Terry, " as he is known in his home- town of Avon, Connecticut, prefers the New England States and snowy winters. His room is always filled with sounds, creating a musical melting pot " rang- ing from Groffe ' to the Association. Planning on the Destroyer Navy and a first shore duty in Antarctica, Jay s ideals and professional knowledge are sure to earn the respect of his associates and friends. THOMAS JOSEPH MAZOUR Emerging from the corn fields of Nebraska and orriv- ing at the Academy directly from Wood River High, Moz ' set himself high gools m the realm of academ- ics with inevitable results. His name has become a permonent fixture on the Deans List and Superin- tendent ' s List. Known as a slosh ' throughout the company, many of his nights were spent helping some of his struggling clossmates make the grade. During his free time, he could be found playing his guitar or planning his car payments. A natural ath- lete, Tom was on integral port of Twenties ' cham- pionship volleyball team and infamous heavyweight football team. With his determined attitude ond over abundant talents, Tom will be able to handle with much more thon mere competence any |ob the Navy moy ask of him. Five Hundred Seventy-one I GARY CHARLES MEYER Hailing from sunny Southern California, Gary quickly learned ffiat the Navy severely cramped his civilian style. However, never one to let a problem of such significance go unsolved, he resolved this by talking Sue into attending college on the East Coast and not allowing acodemics to hinder action on that front. Coach Smalley soon put his previous experience to work for the Navy team, and Gary has seen much ac- tion as varsity roundballer. Academically, Gary managed to see both the Dean ' s and Superintendent ' s List every semester. He is recognized as a leader, both as a " greaser " ond in many ECA ' s. An outstanding ottitude, a remarkable academic ability, good old common sense, and an undying competitive spirit w provide the Nuclear Navy with an outstanding officer. STEPHEN ROBERT POLESHUK Steve come to us from the thriving metropolis of Oce- onside. Long Island. His accent easily identified him as a true New Yorker, the only Russian " Pole " in captiv- ity. His good grades in high school corned over to ac- odemics at USNA and enabled " Shunk " to play la- crosse and " Poolie " football with the varsity sports program. Otherwise, afternoons would dismiss Steve to the pod to rest up for o long lasting bout with " Da Load " on the weekends. When he was not otherwise occupied, Steve spent his time searching the vast ranks of American females for the perfect one. Steve and Navy Air should prove a fine combination to the service of our Country, and the depreciation of its air- planes. Five Hundred Seventy-two WINSTON EARL RORABAUGH Win, a Novy |unior, came to the Academy from the farmland of Pratt, Kansas. He slid " through Plebe Year by accumulating more spoons than the rest of the company combined Wins academic achievements ranged from being placed on probation Plebe Year to making the Superintendents List Youngster Year. After a brief career as goalie for the JV soccer team, Win became on active participant in company sports including: soccer, football, and Softball. He still found time to add his voice to the chorus of the Antiphonol choir, if he showed up. Win will long be remembered by the young lovelies of the East Coast as a long line of broken hearts lies in his wake. Winnie will be a lively addition to any Naval Base s social register. CHESTER ARNOLD SHORTS Hoihng from Erie, Pennsylvania, Chet is the old man of the compony. He had three years of higher educa- tion before reporting to the Academy. Chet isn ' t one to conform. He does things in his own way and hos a flare for the adventurous and unusual. While other Mids are en|oying hot cars, surfboards, parties, and summer sun-tanned girls, Chet con be found spending his leave at Scubo School, sky-diving, or working to earn money to finance his expensive posfimes. During the year all one has to do is stop in his room any hour of the day or night to find Chet with his nose stuck in his books studying, striving to stay on the Superin- tendents List. Chet will be an outstanding asset to the service as a Seal team member. GARY JOHN TEHELBACH Gory s plans to retire as o Midshipman may never come true for he is constantly active, both in academ- ics and sports. His nickname, Oscar Oar, " was earned on the chilly, and at times frozen, waters of the Severn. A dedicated member of the elite crew team, Gory never worried about the cold water, hav- ing been born ond raised in Connecticut. His childhood dream of being a Mid was met with en|oymenf, ontic- ipotion, ond hord work. His occasional hour in the pad could not disguise his constant efforts for betterment, keeping a |ump ahead in academics. Always wonting to be boot driver. Cypress Gardens and the suntan girls will hove to wait til Gory finishes a tour with the Novy Crew. His service selection of Surface Line comes second only to an D of a crew shell. WILLIAM JENNINGS WEBB Bill Webb, known to a few as Webbman, " came from Rock Island, Tennessee after attending McMinn- ville Centrol High School. Bill during his four years at the Academy has set many goals for himself, but has not let academics interfere with his many extra- curricular activities, such as scubo diving ond playing his guitar. He was a decisive factor in many on in- tramural game. But, above all. Bill held allegiance to his somnific pod, knowing the definition of true peace. Bill has always been available to give assist- ance to anyone asking, and has helped many a Mid academically. Upon groduofion, Bill plans to investi- gate the night life of Pensocola, and in the meantime, will undoubtedly be troining and distinguishing him- self as one of the better N avy Pilots. DAVID BLAIR WIEDEMAN What was Montague, Michigan ' s loss became the Academy s gam when Dave entered in thot summer of ' 66 Or was if? He was immediately snatched up by the Plebe football teom, due to his prowess in high school. The rigors of Plebe Year set in, and Dove took them oil somewhat in stride True to his frontier upbringing, Dave ' s ma|or interests lay in such manly sports OS boxing, fieldball, and rugby. Known to the gong as Wieds, he could always be found dragging some lovely young thing into the evil depths of D. C. - or e e idolizing his man, Jean-Claude Killy, on the tube. Wieds is on the way to Novy Air at the moment. Some people think of him as career motivated, but Dave soys he ' s a five-ond outer. " MICHAEL JAMES ZINS Mike left the pleosont city of Fuldo, Minnesota after spending a year at Worthington Jr. College. He was o Varsity wrestler at WJC, and was a natural for a spot on the Novy squad. Novy swimming intercepted Mike on the way to the wrestling loft, and he spends many on en|oyable ofternoon waging a constont battle to keep his head above the woferline. For his aquatic endeavors his classmates tagged him with the nick- name. The Turtle. Mile loved books (as long as they were on the shelf) and his patience with wires prob- lems amazed us oil. No stranger to the foirer sex, Mike devoted many a weekend to his favorite pas- time, the pursuit of women After groduotion. The Turtle hopes to embark upon o career in Navol Avia- tion.

He has been the man to w atch each afternoon during football season. He is alv ays the first one on the field and the lost one off during prac- tice for the 150 lb. team. Steve s love of sports is only approached by his love for female companionship. Nary a weekend passes when Steve is not dragging some lovely young lass. He is one of the few who has managed to keep a dozen girls on the line at one time. Steve is known to have constant bouts with Igor, and is hoppy to say that he seldom comes out on the winning end. Steve ' s likable personality, fine character and willingness to help should serve him in good stead during future years. THOMAS LLEWELLYN BRICKEN Bringing the flavor of the South to the Academy, this native of Mobile, Alabama, has always been known for his friendliness and consideration for others. Be- sides being an expert on the stock market, horse rac- ing, and poker playing, college football, tennis, and golf, this Red Neck ' was a valuable asset to compa- ny football and Softball teams. Never seeming to find academics a hardship, Tom was the envy of many of us who studied harder and earned less. In addition to his enterprising nature, Tom will be remembered by his classmates as Travel Officer, Christmas Card Rep- resentative, Bear Bryant ' s biggest fan, |ourneyman Barber, and for his words of wisdom from home " Aviation bound, this sun-worshipper will most likely be found in Pensacola after graduation, on his way to becoming one of Navy ' s finest. MICHAEL WAYNE CASEY Mike, Case " or Chaos, " came straight to Navy after a brilliant academic and athletic career at Urbono High School, Urbano, Illinois. Mike, a three lettermon (football, basketball, and track) in high school has pursued his first love, football, and has added excite- ment to many a varsity football game playing tight end The fleet-footed Casey has also shown his skills on the basketball court. But, along with his athletic abilities, Mike ' s academic achievements have placed him high in the doss standings. Case, " an easy going guy who likes to fish, has one problem - his eyesight IS poor which limits his career opportunities. Navy Line or Supply Corps seem most probable. His other loves - a fast cor, a bottle of beer, and a blonde. Five Hundred Seventy-six ! LARRY LaMONT COCHRAN Larry hails from the old west of Arizona. With visions of blue and gold in his head, he come straight to the Academy from high school, bringing the untamed dis- cipline of Arizona with him. Four years of Acodemy life hove failed to tame this cowboy and his love of wine and women, as many a fair damsel can attest. Lorry continued his athletic endeavors, lettered his Plebe year in wrestling, and after sitting out on injury his Youngster year, finally obtoined the big N " as a segundo. While disillusioned by a petty officer on Youngster Cruise, Lorry has finally found a prospec- tive place for himself in the Novy. Unless this pistol- pocking, bowlegged cowboy goes completely blind, he plans to bless the NFO Program with a Wild West fla- vor JAMES FRANCIS DEVANEY After spending one year at Manhattan College in New York, followed by two in the Marine Corps, Jim ' s taste for the finer things in life brought him to the Naval Acodemy. Using his natural ability and prior training to the fullest advantage, he helped many o struggling classmate through the militory rigors of Plebe summer and the year that followed. Feeling that the improvement of his social life couldn ' t wait until Youngster year, Jim engaged some of the local talent m his Plebe year, and since thot time has never been without a willing companion in the nearby vicin- ity. His leadership, professionalism, and obility to help people will carry him for in his chosen field. Naval Aviation. WARREN RAYE ECKERT Upon graduating from Baltimore ' s Patterson High School, Warren was detoured to o brief tou; at NAPS before entering the Academy. Upon entering, he quickly found that he was not extremely desirous of academics and rarely burned the midnight oil prior to exoms. The.winter afternoons would find him ploying for the Company Heavies, where he contributed to his team s effort as much as possible Swimming doss was the one thing that he abhorred with a passion, and he spent many on afternoon as co-coptoin of the sub-squad. However, somehow he was always eligi- ble when Lax season rolled around and due to his hustle ond desire, eorned his letter Youngster year. These two ottributes, olong with his virgin barf bag " should stand him in good stead in his coreer as a Naval Aviator. ff JAMES ROY GOODRICH As Jim he is little known or appreciated, but there ore few who have not crossed the path of Goody ' in the post four years. For those who have, it wos no doubt an unforgettable experience and for those who haven ' t, well they can always figure they missed something worthwhile. Until June 66, Goody was on inhabitant of Fenton, Michigan, and lettered in foot- ball, basketball, and baseball there. He now holds the distinguished honor of being the first student of Fen- ton to graduate from the Academy. Goody has been a constant source of laughs besides being a most valu- able star in company sports. His carefree noture is unrivaled and has contributed o greot deal to the morale of his clossmotes. Opportunity and great friendships can be the only words to describe the fu- ture of a guy with his outlook! ROBERT RAYMOND HASBACH Robert R. Hosboch, better known as Hozzy, hoils from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he attended Baldwin High School and wos the recipient of nine athletic let- ters which he won in o variety of sports. His athletic prowess continued to show as he mode the Plebe baseball team, but when he broke his foot he wos forced to retire. Since then he has been a standout on his company s intramurol teams, porticulorly toking charge of his heovyweights during the winter sets. Although he is kidded quite a bit about his grades, he exhibits will to succeed, unparalleled by anyone else in the compony, without which he would never have completed the course. This June when Hazzy gradu- ates, not only will Miss ffloyer receive o new Navy husband, a dreom both have hod for the post four yeors, but the Navy will receive one of the finest, most capable young offi cers to graduate this year. Best of luck. Hoz! five Hundred Seventy-seven .« t A-..r . JEFFREY BERT HAWKINS " Hawk " brought his eosy going attitude to the Acade- my from Minneapolis, Minnesota, where his mam in- terest hod been hockey ond female companionship. Disappointed as he was that he found no hockey rink ot USNA, he nevertheless managed to make good use of his " skating " skills during his stay here. Never one to do an excessive amount of studying, " Pumpkin " was an integral port of the 21st Company ' s second doss " ten til one " discussion group and on weekends could usually be found escorting one of his " beauties. " Despite the non-sweot atmosphere he corned, Hawk mode a fine record in oil aspects of Academy life, excelling in company sports. His conge- nial personality and willingness to occasionally give o little " slock " will enable him to become an outstand- ing Naval Officer. BRUCE ALAN HENRY " Hank " has to be one of the most populor guys in the Academy, obvious from the fact that he knows every- one and everyone knows him. A native of Ploinfield, New Jersey, where he attended Ploinfield High School, he worked his way up from meager beginnings Plebe year to a position worthy of envy in both academics and sports. The Superintendent ' s List was o common occurrence for Bruce, and he could be seen every eve- ning rowing up and down the Severn for the varsity heavyweight crew team. And, being one of the smal- lest men on the team, this was on accomplishment for which he hod cause to be proud. A very dedicated and conscientious worker, he should provide the Novol Service with one of its finest officers. CURTIS OTHO HINGSON " Hinker " transferred to USNA from Marion Institute in Alabama. McLean, Virginia is his home, but recog- nizing a good deal, Curt claimed travel pay from Ala- bama. Since Induction Day, he has met every situation With winning smiles and o " roll-with-the-punch " atti- tude. A Foreign Affairs minor, Hinker balked ot the sciences, but fruitlessly, " they |ust keep on comin ' . " Aside from NAFAC, Curt has contributed his efforts as cartoonist for the " Log " and calendar, and he is of that foolish, hearty breed who decorate Tecumseh before Army weekends. Hink was a company regular, being a solid fixture on the soccer and lightweight football teams. The things, we will remember about Curt go deeper than his good noture and spirit, for he displays sincerity and o winning woy with everyone. DANIEL TIMOTHY HOGAN Dan, also known as the Foot, for his soccer prowess, come to the confines of Mother " B " from St. Louis, ofter a year deferment ot the LJniversity of Missouri. Credit for his rapid and successful odoptment to Academy rigors, however, must be traced to his mili- tary school life ot Christian Brothers High. His athletic ability mode him welcome on company teams, as well OS his social graces did to company parties, which he attempted to civilize somewhat. Although his vision might impair his great ambition to fly, his aerodynamics ma|or, his ever presence on the Super- intendent ' s List, and his ability to get the |ob done right should make him qualified ond highly successful in whichever branch of the service he chooses. GEORGE IRVIN HUTCHERSON Hutch come to the Academy directly out of high school from Richmond, Virginia. Plebe year gave him little trouble, so from the very beginning, he was able to give a tremendous amount of time and effort to his studies, which resulted in consistently high grades and numerous appearances on the Superintendent ' s List. The only real trouble he hod was with the noto- torium, but after many hours, he excelled in the water as well. Irv was o standout for the company in- tromurols, and he always strived to be among the best in anything he participated. He was never afraid to express his opinion, and his ideas were always sound. The Navy is gaining an officer who will be without a doubt among the best, and olways respect- ed. WARREN HARPER IDE, JR. Renny " Bob " Ide arrived at USNA from Sudbury, Mos- sachusetts, with many assets ranging from the aca- demic to the athletic. Though he spent three years as member of the soccer team, he nonetheless found time to enhance many a company sports team. Never finding academics o hardship, Renny started off like a boll of fire, but soon found that books ond Vettes don ' t mix. However, without a whole lot of effort by anybody, " Bob " mode his share of well deserved ap- peoronces on the Superintendent ' s List. Always dating some of the better looking girls around, it was easy to find him atoll the 21st Company " Rolls. " Although he has o knack for the lighter side, Renny is one of the most dependoble and best liked people around. With academic interests being in the field of Politics and Economics, his future looks bright tor at least o short tour in Naval Aviation. five Hundred Seventy-eight % X t.

Whatever happens to Ho|0, you con-bet thot he wont stray too far from that green M, G. and the pretty girl behind the wheel. STEVEN IRVING KLOTZ Steve, likobiy nicknamed Mini " for his greet stature, oil 5 ' 4 " of him, winged his way into the arms of Mother B from the sunshine of Florida. The citizens of Miami Beach never had such a favorite son. His many hours trapped on tropical beeches with bikini- clad natives have given him owell-troined eye for the fairer sex. Not one to mix academics with pleasure, Steve qualifies much better at partying than ot study- ing. When not otherwise involved, you find him work- ing tirelessly through routines on the Gym Deck of MacDonough Hall. A three N " winner, Steve ' s great- est achievement wos being nomed captain of the 1970 Gymnostics Team. Steve has always had a flair for the better life. If the Navy cant hold him, it will surely be a beautiful female that will. Five Hundred Seventy-nine JC JAMES EARL LINQUiST Link ' came to USNA directly from high school in up- state New York. Even during the darkest of the Dork Ages, his quick wit and undying sense of humor al- ways cheered those nearby. Jim ' s athletic prowess was quickly proven in the intramural program. Aca- demics were also easy, at first, and not knowing the true meaning of Wires, ' Jim chose what he thought to be an appropriate minor. When the Wires ' turned to Cables, " Jim turned to a Management minor in- stead. Superintendents List was, again, o possibility and not a dream. As on ex-Wires Jock, Jim found on enormous amount of extra time which he then, prop- erly devoted to wild parties and beautiful women. Looking forward to more of the same, Jim will be winging his way through a fast five " in Navy Air. EDMUND ANDREW LUCKE Ed came to USNA o hardened veteran of Villonovo University NROTC! After being reiected by NAVY fol- lowing high school in Southern New Jersey, Ed began his Naval career in one of the more maligned branch- es, but he soon saw the error of his ways and come to the real " NAVY.

Youngster year found Ed developing a rut " in his pad, but he managed to survive academics in spite of his affinity for zzz ' s via the gouge! A pitched battle with wires during second class year left him shaken, but still here with his eyes set on both the Marine Corps and marriage to his high school sweetheart after graduation. five Hundred Eighty , WYf MICHAEL JOSEPH McREYNOLDS Mac come to chilly Morylonci straight from high school in California.

HARLEY leROY RHODES Hailing from the plains state of North Dakota, Horley soon found the Navy could be a challenging and re- wording field. During his four years, he spent a great deal of time acquiring new skills ond ideals. The Bee ' s Knees " found the yowls were a nice relief and could be found soiling the high seas both foil ond spring. More than onything else, he liked the leave and summers where a little proctical knowledge of the service and world could be investigoted. He man- aged the Superintendent s List o few times ond once he even got stars. Reading was his thing much of the time, he would pick up anything printed and read it. Horley con look forward to o promising career in his service selection - Novy Air. SYD " W " RODENBARGER Rodey s ' orted out on his path to USNA by being o stud at his little high school.

Al- though Byron was not one to hit the books with an undue amount of vigor, he did hove a knock of ' get- ting the gouge ' when it was necessory and never hod ony real problems with acodemics during his stay at USNA. An OA minor, Byron s nome could occasionally be found on the Superintendents List. In the sports scene, Byron s voried talents ranged from company volleyboll to Battalion weight lifting. His best sport, however, was the wining and dining of certain young ladies from the surrounding area The sunny skies of Pensocolo and Novol Aviation appeal to Byron, and its certain that a successful career in Navy Air lies aheod for him ofter graduation RICHARD MICHAEL TEATER Teats come to the salty shores of the Chesopeoke from Des Moines, Iowa, in the heart of corn country.

An avid P-rade hater, Mark |oined the sailing squadron and could be found there during both the fall and spring sets. As a Plebe, Mark was on the Rifle team, but found intramural football was more to his liking. Mark planned to go Surface Line, but First Class Cruise changed this to subs. His weapons ma|or kept him busy, but somehow that never kept him away from any card gomes. Mark will probably be remembered for efforts in organizing our many parties, both good and bad. RICHARD ALAN THOMPSON Dick came to the Naval Academy a veteran of travel and the military. He hails from Norristown, Pennsyl- vania, but calls New York his home. Dick enlisted in the Navy in 1964 and attended NAPS before he en- tered the Academy.

Phil was never a one lady man, always thinking he was too good for just one girl, one in particular. Phil in all his exploits here at the Academy has become known as the transportation chairman. He has practiced for that wild time to be had in Pensccolo, where he wants to learn to fly the big planes. ROBERT JOHN BAILEY Never one to sweat the system. Beetle come from Or- lando, Florida after o year at Grange Juice College. He spent the ma|ority of his time recovering from his aversion to study, composing his next letter to Carroll Shelby, or ordering more stereo equipment from Al- lied. Beetle took the ?-works as they came, and o few took him. But, with o minimum of effort, he man- aged to sneak by the Aero profs and complete a diffi- cult Aerospace Engineering minor. Weekends found our hero dragging some pretty chick and on occasion, the Boow. It looks like Beetle will be a Naval Aviator for ot leost five years, but wherever he goes or what- ever he does, the future con never be dull. JAMES MANN CARNEY Jeff, as he is known to his friends, hails from North Dartmouth, Massachusetts. Although heading for o Moth major, most of his time is spent on the hills of Navy s golf course. In addition to Plebe and three years of Varsity golf, Jeff has given cross country, basketball, and fieldboll a whirl on the intromural level. At night, he may be found studying or watching the tube, but more often than not, you will find him adding to his undisputed lead in phone-time. " With his ever present smile and grey hoir, which he blames on the Executive Department, Jeff was always willing to lend hand to anyone in need. We are oil sure of his success in Naval Aviation, a decision which Young- ster Cruise seemed to help along. Five hundred Eighty-five Five Hundred fighry-five 1 ROBERT CHARLES CHAPLIN ■ Charlie " arrived of USNA after 18 rigorous years of travel as an Army brat, from Taiwan to Fort Knox. Being a standout athlete in high school, his natural ability on the athletic field carried over to company soccer, football, and bosebalL Never an academic standout, but never in any trouble, Charlie managed to spend most of his time doing anything as long as it wasn ' t too closely related to the books. Gifted with a contagious smile and lighthearted attitude toward life, Charlie counted nearly everyone as his friend. Al- ways a terror with the fairer sex, he managed to get himself captured for good during Youngster year, and a charming girl from Ohio is making off with quite a catch. Graduation should find Charlie heading down the aisle and down the prop pipeline at Pensocola. MICHAEL BRYAN CHARLEY Charley Tuna is a product from some reservation near Eagle Point, Oregon. Although he validated Plebe summer, he soon became on outstanding member of the class of 1970. There were many attacks upon the academic department and the Tunc finally won first semester second class year. We were all happy to see him on the winning side at graduation. The Tuna was an avid supporter of company and battalion sports. Everyone can remember that to him all sports were played like tackle football. Navy Air will beckon the Tuna. The fly boys will be receiving a fine officer and welcomed member to any squadron. STEPHEN TREDWAY COLEMAN The " Old Man of the Mountains " hails from Roanoke, Virginia, where he was born and reared. Not discour- aged by military life and a Plebe year at Virginia Tech, Steve crept into the Academy with the enthusiasm of a mortician. An extremely determined individual, Steve managed to hock his way through the fog, con- fusion, and his own profound logic that eternally sur- rounded him to somehow scrape together a 2.0 - usually, and still be an avid participant in many ac- tivities, the main ones being the D B and The Lucky Bog. He will always be r emembered for his pounding the bass drum and his endless labor on this book. His ceaseless supply of mail from females far and wide always amazed us all, ond it seemed as though he was forever tracking down on album someone, he usually had forgotten who, hod borrowed from his vast collection. The Navy will certainly welcome this outstanding officer to the fleet. Five Hundred Eighty-si « r_ i» ■ . i RAYMOND DAVID DeCARIO Ray, Wop to his friends, staggered Into the Navy right out of high school. After two yeors of a studious cur- riculum at NAPS, designed to substitute for his four years of high ( ' ) school, he was plunged Into the rig- orous life of a midshipman. Wop spent his time (lei- sure, academic, and scheduled) playing sports. He went on to play two yeors of varsity football. It was never hord to find Ray; he either was working out, re- laxing, or engaging in some sort of non-mental com- bat. Wop amazed many of us by always having a Gay time. His constant antics and carry-on ' s (Plebe year ' ) were viewed by many as exhilarating. Provided someone teaches him to march, the graduation cere- mony will oilow Roy few months to catch up on some unfinished work after which he will follow the NFO pipeline. JACK DAVID DODD The Dude come to the Academy from the soul capi- tal of the world, Memphis. Although he spent a good portion of each study hour |usf shooting the breeze with the guys, he still managed to find time to give E.I. to those who needed it. Trying not to let his Dean ' s List QPR get him down, he took on avid Inter- est in company sports. From lightweight football to slow-pitch Softball, Dude " could always be counted on to rattle the opponent with a timely remark or two. His chief extracurricular activity centered around his girl, though, and eoch leave period would find him beating feet for Memphis. After completing a major In Mathematics, Jack hopes to pursue o career in Naval Aviation. His warm personality and eagerness to help others won him many friends ot the Academy and will undoubtedly continue to do so throughout his career. EARL JAY FOUGHT Although his home town moy not be known by many - including a detoiled mop of Kentucky - Toler was Joy ' s World " as long as he con remember. After four successful years at Belfry High and o year at Eastern Kentucky, Earl came to USNA and quickly fit into its intricate system. With his quick wit ond excellent memory for trivio and sports. Brown Town eosily kept his classmates in good spirits and obtained on excel- lent record with the upper class. Brown City ' s athletic prowess was usually found on the intramurol fields throughout the Academy. His unusual ability for im- possible catches and a strong desire to win mode him valuable asset to any team. Alwoys a frequent visitor of bull sessions, the Pirate was always on top with the latest in company news and was never at a loss for words. His undying sense of humor ond stroightforward honesty has placed Eorl at the top in his company, and has won him a lasting friendship with his clossmates and friends. CHARLES MICHAEL FRARY During his time at the Academy, " Wally " was a mon of many activities. Although not one to overdo him- self physically, he did find time to play several com- pany sports Including volleyball. Wolly come from Washington State as on Innocent, wholesome Ameri- can boy; however, he quickly changed his ways and odapted quite well to Academy life. Many girls blew In and out of Chuck ' s life, and it will be a toss-up to see which one will finally get him. Always in constant battle with the 2.00, Wolly always seemed to come up with enough grades to sneak by for another se- mester. Whether he will go Staff Corps, Supply Corps, or Marine Corps is supposed to be undecided, but one will probably see the " Wolens " marching around and lending his leadership qualities to the men in green. URRY CURTIS GRETZINGER Gretz, who is known as the " tall two by four " throughout the Brigade reigns from the well-known backwoods Tennessee town of McMlnnville. Before coming to the Noval Academy, Lorry attended Gordon Military College as a pre-med student, and also held the rank of Cadet Captain, only o year away from commission. Being used to the military dictatorship, he found Plebe Summer and the Naval Academy unchallenging. To occupy his mind, he is working towards a Weapons Systems Engineering degree. His activities include Protestant Chapel Choir, Sailing Squadron, Heavyweight football, and ISO lb. Football Teom Manager. Since Youngster year, he has occupied his weekend time by flashing around on old country roads on his little white Go-cart. Lorry hopes to be riding high when he joins the fleet as on aviator. FRANCIS BUNYAN GRUBB Frank came to Severn Shores after a demanding yeor at Bullis Prep. Looking forward to four relaxing yeors, he took USNA In stride. The end result was a well used rack during the day, but often burning the midnight oil to overcome his greot nemesis. Wires. Frank, The Grubber, became the nice guy of the company with his sheepish smile ond easygoing manner. Always a standout in fieldball ond lacrosse, he led his bott lax team to on unprecedented 10-0 season. Weekends found him dashing off to Pennsylvonio where his grease girl patiently waited. A trip to the altar will break the monotony before reporting oboord the roll- ing decks of his destroyer. Navy Line is sure to benefit in acquiring this great gox, for that is how he will al- ways be remembered by those of us fortunate enough to have known him. Five HurxJced Eighty-seven PETER ALAN HARING Pete comes to us from the sooty streets of New York. Nothing ever seemed to give the Spinx any trouble, he |U5t from the day he arrived, excelled in everything from academics, where the Deans List was an easy mark, to sports and his outstanding ability on the varsity gymnastic team. Although not much was ever said about the young ladies in his life, Pete could often be seen, grip in hand, hurrying off to the arms of some lucky girl. At times, Pete was one of the most avid submarine fans in the world, and at times he was one of their deadliest enemies, so it is anybody ' s guess what graduation will bring other than o Mas- ter ' s degree. But, whatever field Pete chooses, it can be assured that he will excel. ROBERT JAY HEALY Tm fallible, I ' m merely superior to everybody else " Bob always said that, and nobody hod the patience to prove him wrong. Taking courses that the rest of us couldn t pronounce, he could out think us all. Entering his room, one might hear If you want help, you ' ll hove to wait in line " - that put a guy in his place. We never knew whether Linda or submarines came first, but seeing him in a fog running into things when he was with Linda led everyone to on obvious conclusion. Between working crossword puzzles. Bob was found reading, mailing letters to New Jersey, swimming, in the corner polishing shoes, often in the pad, never in the barbershop, and sometimes even studying. A Mas- ter ' s degree awaits Bob on graduation; then, if they con meet his standards, nuclear subs will acquire a most outstanding and unusual officer. iiwit littsrfflii ' Semie ! mMi tJ Willi one OS 111 lif.

" LEWIS SAMUEL HOLLIER, III Nobody wos ever sure whether the cloud followed Sam or he the cloud, but the two were constant com- panions from fhot day in June 66 when they drifted into USNA. Sam brought his cloud with him from Big Timber, Montana after putting in o year at the state university. A confirmed lover of the Corps, he was determined to follow in the bootsteps of his father. Service selection night and his dreams come true marked a momentous occasion, which Sam celebrot- ed with real haircut. Sam will always be remem- bered for his easygoing manner, acceptance of every- one as his friend, and genuine devotion to the Marine Corps. GORDON LEIGH JONES With a twisting holf-goiner, Gordy lit in Mother B from Erie, Pennsylvonia. He packed along his high school All-Americon diving ability and the highest scholastic attributes. Headed to fill the Navy ' s top lawyer billet, he majored in bull (courses and conver- sation). With mouthful of demeaning travesties, he lumped atop the Superintendents List and Navy ' s swimming team. With time, his study habits come closer to mine, and hes now contented to bounce bock and forth from the pad to the diving board. After shacking up with him for four years, I con soy a closer or more likable friend cannot be found (or a better Bud belter). His scholastics and athletics have been a great attribute to the school and the Navy. He II graduate carrying his N s and headed for the stars, probably wearing them. JOHN THEODORE MARINO, JR. John, along with his ever-present smile, come to us from Staten Island, New York. While at the Academy he made his presence known in a variety of intramur- al sports, and perhops more astonishing, managed to complete on Aero ma|or. Known for his quick wit and distinguished lough, there was never a dull time when John was around. His presence at company parties was always known, whether he wore his white turt- leneck or stood on his hands for the girls. Most of his free time was spent fighting the Pad Monster or on his bulking up program. We all wish John the best of luck in his hopes to become the company ' s only as- tronaut. JAMES LENUS McCLANE Never inclined to do anything halfway, Jim lived in his father ' s cruise box for the first two years of his life, spent time as o whitohot then as on NROTC ot Villo- novo, before he looked to Annapolis. Plebe Year he spent nearly every evening with his nose buried in his books. After the freshman IRA rowing championships, Jim went home for Youngster Cruise. One uneventful year lofer, he arrived at Pensacolo with noturol profi- ciency. Jim tamed the plane which flies itself, ' and to the odmiration of his instructor, he landed on one runway and took off from another without even slowing down. Barely escaping a pin, he returned in the Fall, and against the advice of his many friends, he went out for crew again and went to the Nationals for a third time. Then after on exciting first class cruise of Norfolk, Charleston, Mayport, " Crosh " moved into the third regimental staff room to enjoy his last year of quiet free periods as the company duty driver. EDWARD RUSSELL McKENNY, JR. Hailing from Cicero, Illinois, Big Red come to Navy straight out of high school. He adapted well to Acade- my life and never was known to sweat anything too much. Very rarely showing his Irish temper. Big Red " was one of the most generous, eosygoing guys around and was a friend of all. Intramurols profited much from Ed ' s athletic abilities, especially the Com- pany football, Softball, and tug-of-wor teams. Ed was king of the company socialites, and few Saturday nights found him around Boncroft. He was known for the parties he attended and the girls he dragged from Pensacolo to New London. A self-confirmed bachelor. Big Red ' should lead a very interesting life as o |un- lor officer. Managing to grab a block N, " good grades, and a couple dozen girls while ot USNA, the " real " Navy should benefit greotly from Ed ' s talents. ELDRED FRANCIS NEWLAND, JR. Emigrating from Neodesha, Kansas (where the leg- endary Fall River |oins the Verdigris), J. R. was quick to capture the interest of his classmates. It is hard to believe thot the some bond that whipped buttonhook and post-pattern passes in high school, became so adept at popping Buds whenever the Kid ' was on libs. J. R. thought thot there was a future in Naval Management, except when the Academic Boord met, then the class of 70 s member of the Mod Squad ' turned his thoughts to the occupational opportunities offered in Soudi Arabia. Whether Naval Aviation or the Marine Corps wins out, J. R. will long be remem- bered for the friendship ond winning manner that he always extended. It will be o victory for those who serve with this likable and loyal man, to have J. R. aboard. Five Hundred Eighty-nme JOHN PACKARD NUTE The Panther came to the Naval Academy to row Navy Crew and gam a commission in the Marine Corps. A native of Boinbridge Island, Washington, he came to the Navy with a competitive, good-natured attitude. He spent his sports career at Navy in one of the most thankless lobs that exists, a crew coxswain. John had his moments; it took a " moke " cart to move his grease lOcket from place to place, and on several oc- casion, he thought he was going to face the Sup down the long green table, but somehow this never materi- alized. His troubles demonstrated his tenacity and ability. In the long run, his calm enthusiastic state of mind and intense orderly work got him through. He will moke o good officer because of his absolute hon- esty and fairness in dealing with people. Viper would be proud. PATRICK WARREN O ' NEIL " Scooter, " being a Navy iunior, has lived in various parts of our country, although he was born in Jack- sonville, Florida. He easily mastered all facets of Academy life with uncommon determination. Academically, Pat never met with any real difficulties, but his exploits on the athletic fields, whether scoring goals for the company soccer team or touchdowns for the football team, wilJ be remembered by all who saw them. " Scooter " divided his time between playing his guitar and evading the Executive Deport- ment. He hod a great deal of success with both._ Scooter ' s sacrificing, unselfish personality will keep him where he is needed most - at the top. DAVID SHELBY PHILLIPS, III Dave hails to us from Alexandria, Virginia. Upon his graduation from Bullis Prep, he wos appointed to An- napolis. Here he has instilled his friendship through- out the Brigade with his warm personality. Dave ' s love for the Navy is only surpassed by his love for life ' s pleasures. We could always count on Dave for action when it come to planning or executing any of our many escapades or social functions. He helped moke the good times that we will long remember, when we look back on these four treasured years. Career bound in the Navy ' s line, he will no doubt find his good spirit welcome in the Fleet, and his friend- ship will be remembered by all in the years to come. LEO STANLEY ROLEK, JR. Entering out of high school with a Chicago accent, Lee was quickly refined to the language and habits of a Midshipman. Never lacking for words on any sub|ect, he was often the main source of the gouge needed by all of us. Usually ending on fop with bouts with the Academic Department, and in fact, asked to try for a Rhodes Scholarship, Lee has pushed, pulled, and kicked his grades to the top hundred of the class. After battling it out with grades, Lee usually vented steam out on intramural contact sports like football, fieldball, and lacrosse. June, 1970, should find Lee heading toward an immediate Master ' s and Pensoco- la picking up along the way a much better looking permanent roommate, also from Chicago. His nest may no longer be his, but the Navy will certainly ben- efit from his continuous efforts to do his best. i Five Hundred Ninety T %. L I ' SECOND CLASS LEFT TO RIGHT FROM BACK ROW: A.

HARRY PETER ALESSO A quiet and sincere individual, Harry came directly to the Naval Academy from Gorfield, New Jersey. Finding the aca- demic system rigorious, Horry could olw oys be found in the pad reading, or over in Michelson Holl working on his science pro|ect. His competitive instinct and hard work made him on avid porticipont in intramural sports, al- though many of his ofternoons were spent in achieving his Varsity N in swimming sub-squad. In his spare moments, he was always ready to give anyone a challenging game of chess or bridge. Harry intends to go the great nuclear way upon graduation, and cannot foil to bring credit upon him- self ond the Naval Service. STEVEN JOHN BANNAT Steve came to the Naval Academy directly from Milton, New Jersey. He is known good-naturedly as Teddy Bear " by his classmates as well as the Plebes who alwoys found him barring the way to many of his classmates ' shower parties. Steve has managed to stay above the vital 2.00 academically, and at the same time participate in Vorsity football and wrestling. He has a notorious reputation for being a one man shower party, " but his broad gnn and sincere manner hove won him many close friends. Upon graduation, Steve intends to go Navy Line, where his dedi- cation to the service will make him a credit to the Navy. WILBURN MAC BLOUNT Bob come to Navy from a town with a place in Naval histo- ry , Hampton Roads, Virginia. He always got along with people, and he will be well remembered for his plentiful supply of mouthwash, which gave him the healthiest throat in the Navy, ond his precocious loss of hair, which eorneci him o reputation as the old man. " Bob was not the type to get excited unnecessarily. He always mode level-headed decisions and adhered to his pnnaples. He wos his own man. Unfortunately, this will probably change in June, when a sweet young loss from Philly will latch onto him with the holy wedlock. Yes, the Bachelors ' Club will suffer a loss,, but about the same time. Navy Line will be getting a fine man. I Five Hundred Nimty-ttiree 11 •■?v-.-.. 6:.. CHARLES DANIEL CAREY, III There are few people here who con claim the distinction of being able to buy the Naval Academy, and " Chuck " is one of them. He tore himself away from the arms of Oklahoma City, making sure to grab his dust rag on the way. He came to Navy to excel, and that he did until hit by the " creeping coast " in the earlier part of Plebe year. His athletic form and muscular build have become a familiar sight on the Company basketball court, and one was always sure to see him catching rays out on Hospital Point during the Spring. Chuck always came prepared with his sense of humor, o- viol personality, and deck of cards. He II soon groce the sky in his marine Greens, if they can find a Phantom clean enough for the " White Moke. " Five Hundred Ninety-fouf ERNEST GRAHAM DAVIS A mere wisp of a person, Ernie conne straight to the Acade- my from Virginia Beach, Virginia. An acacJemic slash, he spent many nights burning the micinight oil; while his (Joys were spent in pursuing his favorite pastime, testing his eyelicis for light leaks. He is especially known for his ciisop- pearing act for twenty minutes after reveille and never being caught. An avid radio club fon, he could also be turned on to the right frequency for an impromptu wres- tling match or a quick three hands of hearts. A competitive individual in everything from bridge to squash, " Ernie will moke a fine officer in whichever field he chooses. DAVID PAUL FAUCHER Dave come to us from cold Worcester, Massachusetts, and wos greeted by the warm smile of Tom Sommers. A French ma|or, he lucked out with the French foreign exchange cruise, a free week in Pons, and the presidency of the French Club. Dove s gullibility was the source of many hu- morous moments for his practical |oking friends. He stud- ied conscientiously, but not so much that the Company vol- leyboll, Softball, and basketball teams suffered more than seven losses out of eight games each. Dove avoided demer- its and sub-squad with equol vehemence. However, he was unavoidably drawn to his one and only, and saw diamonds one day in May. After groduation. Dove s timeless love " will be reolized with rings of gold as he begins a promising (oreer. JOSE ROILO GOLEZ Roy, respectfully known as Mr. Nice Guy, hails from Que- zon City, Philippines. Roys proud military bearing and great respect for military life were developed at the strict Philippine Military Academy before coming to the Naval Acodemy. Roy ' s boxing ability has mode him o perennial Brigade boxing chompion, a feat very few midshipmen have attained. In spite of his bruising boxing bouts, Roy re- tains the sensitive touch of an exceptional artist. The Bn- gode has always en|Oyed his posters for the Art and Print- ing Club. Despite these time consuming activities, he hos repeatedly been on the Superintendent ' s List while concen- trating on mathematics. Roys calm, cheerful nature has mode him well liked while at the Academy. His persever- ence ond stern military bearing promise a fine professional officer. The Philippine Navy has much to look forward to in 1970. JON ROBERT JENSEN Jon come to the Academy from Seottle, Washington, with his golf clubs on his bock and a smile on his face. Finding Plebe year rather time consuming, Jon was very glad to see that first graduation day, when dreoms of fluffy pillows and holes-in-one once again occupied his mind. Jon could be found perfecting that swing on the golf course in fair weother when not otherwise occupied by company soccer or the pod monster. Looking forward to graduation when physics books will no longer occupy his nights, Jon plans to soak up some Florida sunshine. He has his heart set on re- ceiving those wings, but there is another attraction in Pen- socolo, a sweet young one. Jons vibrant personolity and love for a good party will moke his stay ot Annapolis of the Air ' on enpyoble one. RODNEY GUY LATHAM Guy come to the.Naval Academy sfroight from high school in Washington, North Carolino. The " Stump " brought his football knowledge with him and used it exceedingly well in company lightweights. A Mechanical Engineering ma|or never caused him much trouble, and he always slashed out on finals to keep his stars. Never one to stay up at night or for that matter during the day, Guy could always be found sleeping either in class or in the pod. Always a pursuer of the fair sex, Guy could be seen fighting off his drag s en- gagement ideas olmost every weekend. Surface Line will claim him at graduation, and then his quick wit and south- ern drawl will be a never ending source of amusement to any wardroom. Guy ' s ability to get along with others ond to always do a good |ob will insure a successful future in the Fleet. CLEMENS JAMES MADY, JR. Coming from California the Modes, " as he is known to his friends, has spent his days at LJSNA compiling OPR s that can ' t be found on a slide rule and eagerly describing details on his lotest love. While working for a ma|or in Aerospace, Jim has found time to participate in lightweight footboll, volleyball, and sunbathing on Hospitol Point. Clem will al- ways be remembered for his willingness to help o doss- mote with his homework, to spend innumerable hours in the pod, and for the fact he never knew there was such a thing OS low volume on his tope deck. Easygoing attitude, humor, and readiness to go to o party, along with his intel- ligence, should prove o successful mixture for his coreer in submorines. Five Hundred N ' nely-I RICHARD JOHN McGOEY Rick came to the Naval Academy from Delmar, New York, with on exceptional record in high school ath- letics and academics. At USNA, he continued to dis- play his talents in various sports, varsity baseball and company basketball in particular. Although Wires " is abhorred by most midshipmen, Rick chose electrical science as his minor. His repeated appearance on the Superintendent ' s List proved that " Wires " isn ' t really that difficult. Sports and academics didn ' t keep Rick from other extracurricular activities, being very active in the Catholic Choir and the Brigade Honor Board. Many underclassmen in his squad will always remem- ber the unhesitating help that Rick gave them. His relentless desire to do a good |ob and his devotion to duty will make Rick on invaluable member of the Great Fleet. GERALD CHARLES MELLO Gerry, one of our resurrected Tigers, colls Newport, Rhode Island, home. Possibly it was there, close to the Atlantic, that he first heard the coll of the sea and decided on the Navy, ond the Academy. Although aca- demics were not his strong suit, he certainly held o full house of other qualities. Friendly but frank, he can pride himself on having many friends and few ad- versaries. Dedicated and sincere, motivated to the Naval Service, and to the Academy, Gerry will make a fine addition to any destroyer ' s wardroom. We only wonder whether Gerry can hold out long enough to live that good life as a bachelor type, or whether he will be shoring that Ensign ' s pay. ROBERT FRANCIS MILEWSKI Bob hails originally from Erie, Pennsylvania, where he graduated from Cathedral Prep. He now makes his home in Cleveland, Ohio. He chose Chemistry for his minor, on enjoyable course, but not conducive to good grades. Between studies. Bob participated in Battal- ion hondball, rugby, and tennis. Although Bob re- ceived much kidding about his large frame from all his many friends, it was always received in good humor. Easygoing " Ski " mode friends easily, even though they all agreed that he could improve his taste in music. Under his smiling exterior. Bob hod a more serious side. Always ready to help, even when it was inconvenient, he will certainly be missed by his friends and readily received by his contemporaries in whatever branch he chooses.

A luminous body in high school, he storred there in four sports. A student activist, as well as o hard-core Tiger, he engaged the clutch in Plebe track and varsity basketball, hop and policy committees, and clutched only in Plebe push-ups. Dove ' s chemical- ly oriented academic schedule allowed him to keep his " blue trampoline " nice and tight (like a good Tiger should). He somehow found time to devote him- self to his charges ond professionally motivate them. Tight with com, Dave was nevertheless happily vic- timized by Deon s List QPR allowing long and mem- orable weekends. A certain Hoosier loss is the lucky recipient of his amours and numerous qualities. Head- ed for subs, he will be an asset to that service. We wish him the best. THOMAS GORDON OnERBEIN Tom come to us from Bad Axe, o small settlement in the backwoods of Michigan. A welcome addition to any group, Tom was always willing to assist anyone in acodemic difficulties unless, of course, he wos al- ready busy tidying up his room, a never ending proc- ess. Never in serious trouble with the books himself, Tom was at variance with the PT Department, in which he was a consistent under-achiever throughout his four years. A fierce intramural competitor, Tom goined o formidable reputation os the only center in lightweight football who could regularly snap the boll 20-30 yards over the quarterbock ' s heod. After grodu- otion, Tom plans o career in Novy Air, since he suffers from on acute fear of water EDWARD JOHN ROBESON, IV Ed, Marine all the way, come to the Academy after year of college. A leader, Ed has been an inspiration to those who believe in the Academy. A real Southern gentlemen, he caught stotic constantly for his many romances, but he finally settled down to one girl. You can be sure Ed will leave the ranks of bachelorhood early in his career. A well-disciplined Greenwood Emerald, ' Ed believed in the slogan ' Winners never quit, quitters never win " Although an in|ury curtailed his football career, Ed was still a tough opponent on the lacrosse field and in the squash courts. With a ti- ger ' s spirit and a blue and gold heart, Ed will surely find his home in the Corps. ' THOMAS GREGORY SERWICH It IS doubtful thot many midshipmen will successfully navigate themselves through these hallowed halls having earned more respect and esteem from their classmates than T Gregory Serwich. Always king of the sick pun, Greg has been a welcomed source of humor. But much more importont, Greg traveling under such aliases as Captain Nemo or Sandwich, " was the company leader, the Old Man of the Sea. " He was always willing to aid a classmate, indicative of the intense desire and pride that always have al- lowed him to excel in all of his many activities and interests. It would be difficult to count all of the times classmates come trooping into Greg ' s room to get the gouge " on one sub|ecf or another. Greg will always be remembered and respected by those here who hove gotten to know him. As on officer, Greg is certoin to be among the best of the best. He always has been. JOHN GEORGE STAMPELOS The Greek, ' one of the privileged few to return from Christmas leme with o suntan, hails from Miami Beach, Florida. He attended the University of Wis- consin for one yeor before entering USNA. John mode his fame at the Academy, Plebe year, by being the only one who could make an onnouncemen t and have it heard over one-third the messhall. Interested at a very early age in the mysteries of electronics, Stamps " continued his foscinotion by spending many hours in the pursuit of an electrical science ma|or. He also participoted in Battalion tennis and rugby. In the winter, you could see him playing goalie for his old Tiger fieldboll team. Stampy s sincere qualities mode him many friends whom he will carry with him os he continues his career in the Navol Service. JAMES LANGDON TAYLOR Jim sadly trooped into USNA from Miami, Florida, but before long moved to that somewhat infamous Pearl River in New York, He spent his more athletic days ploying soccer, soffboll, and idolizing Broadway Joe Nomoth while quorterbocking the lightweight foot- ball team. The remainder of his time wos spent com- piling a mo|estic QPR, podding out in the rack, and returning phone colls to Miss Sara Suburbia ' in Nashville. Jim will forever be remembered for his quick wit and greet love for the latest underground sound from Rod McKuen and the New York Philhar- monic Symphony. Plans to provide wings for the fleet and master ' s degree for himself follow Jim upon groduation along with possible wedding bells.

Rod, better known as the Buzzard " came to the Naval Academy after ayear of strenuous prepping at Morion Institute in his home state of Alabama. A Bama man through and through, Buz ' s loves include the Bear, " southern girls, and many toll, cold Buds. In the afternoons, if Buz is not assisting in on in- tramural victory, he con be found slaving over on Aero handout, or more often, arm in arm v ith his closest friend Ooger, " the pad monster. Rod is look- ing forvi ard to donning the wings of Navy Air with his eye on attack |ets. His leadership qualities and his ability to get a |ob done should start Buz on a re- warding and successful career in the Naval Service. MICHAEL BRAUN AYCOCK Mike, better known os Teddy Bear, come to USNA from the seaport town of Mobile, Alabama. Always willing to Old a bull session or a skiwie-rip, Mike has been a consistent member of the Superintendent ' s List and lettermon in two Varsity sports, one of his prize possessions being his first ' N-stor. " Mike ' s loves cen- ter around chapel, the barber shop, and a certain southern belle named Suzie. Rumor has it, Mike will receive controlling shares in the C P Telephone Com- pany upon graduation. Graduating with a ma|or in Aerospace Engineering, Mike expects to attend gradu- ate school before going to Pensacola, where he will hove his eye on the Phantom, Mike ' s leadership abil- ity, dedication, intelligence, and sense of humor will prove to be a valuable asset to the Navy. ROYAL WILLIAM CONNELL, JR. Roy come to our midst from Fairfax, Virginia, but he claims thot he is o Texan above all. From the moment that Roy entered, he was token into the loving core of the second class and continued to be pampered all through Plebe year. Roy blows for the D and B, seem- ing to moke this his Academy profession and has stood many cold hours in pursuit of excellence. Aca- demics did not escape his mind though, for he always got everything done without doing anything. His ex- cellence did not stop in books, for he often thought of ma|oring in boxing. Royal wonts to become a NAVY pilot, if someone will lend him a good pair of eyes, but will settle to be |ust a darn good NFO. iiklethf rath of If to oste otaM sliipei,: ifi, W tawlo Him till soytlioll liqliM ol ifjltii visuol f til h SaiiSL ' : n lifiiol Mi ' s list IWtof si«iso( semkltii Sfco liltiij w «lllioit O ' fe to y i ' . WILLIAM ROBERT CURRER Bill (Agent 007 ) was sent by the City of Chicago to tackle the harciships of Plebe year - including the wroth of a firstie he snokad (and then asked around for Hundredth Night), and the trials and tribulations of the Duck. " Bill managed to survive, though, and has done on excellent |ob in everything he has at- tempted here at the Naval Academy, His sporting en- deavors include volleyball, lightweights, knock- abouts, and running to meetings. Because he is o high striper. Bill rarely has a complete study hour to him- self, but this hasn ' t seemed to affect his grades. Known for his unusual sense of humor and keen inter- est in the Naval Service, Bill is completing a minor in Aero and will be looking forward to o coreer in Avia- tion. DWIGHT ELLIS DENSON Hailing from deep within the South, Gator ' comes to USNA from Boytown, Texas, the larger town |ust south of Houston. His liberal views and open mind en- lighten all conversation from Sinology to his unusual weekends. The old cliche, a girl in every port, in this case might be modified for him to a girl on every block and then one. But, what of the Purple Sweat- shirt and the Edwardian? A natural athlete and avid performer, Dwight has endured the daily suffering of Coach Gherdes and the Varsity Track Team. His un- usuol pre-workout warm up bos been true to his style. His career aspirations, somewhat narrowed by visual impairment, presuppose o necessary tour with Navy Line. ROGER DALE HILL Texas born and Texas bred, Roger came to the Naval Academy with big ideas ond a lot of opinions. With the help of a closed mind and pe rseverance, Roger has kept those opinions and ideas. When studies beckon, he IS always first, a charter member of Supermtend- ents List since his first semester. Often at the ex- pense of his own grades, Roger has given long ses- sions of moth E. I. to needy classmates. In his free time, Roger strums his twelve string guitar, or os- sembles model airplanes. In his not so free time, he is busy throwing passes for the compony football team, lifting weights for the Bottolion weightlifting teomi or in some other monner frying to ovoid eyesfroin in order to qualify for Novy Air. RUSSEL ERICK HAUCK While growing up on ' ' the Island, " Russ developed a flair for sports (swimming, running, etc.), which he has corned with him here of Navy. It was his easygo- ing manner which mode him such a pleasure to be around during Plebe Year, and nobody could hove better withstood the constant kidding over his pur- chase of a tope recorder that plays nothing but static. But then, that typifies the quick, worm sense of humor that bos become his trademark and has made him the most populor man in the company. Russ isn ' t all humor, though, his astounding use of the vernacu- lar has allowed him to snow his way through his Bull courses and become recognized as on expert in For- eign Affairs. Russ will be o welcome, professional, ond competent addition to any P-3 Squadron. Six Hundred One THOMAS LESLIE HOWARD, JR. Tom hails from the Pittsburgh of the South, Birming- ham, Alabama, and although somewhat forgetful about names, faces, and dotes, he has always had remarkable drive in the pursuit of grades and girls; ending up with o 3.0 plus performance on both. His constant attempts to reform his gosh darn " lan- guage were always set tempororily aside by some- thing like finals, but our hero never gove up. Always ready to help others, many was the study hour that his room took on the look of an E. I. session in full progress and many gallons of midnight oil were ex- pended in the quest for his many goals (academic only while not on leave). The Navy is gaming a fine officer and one of our greatest friends. We wish him the best of luck in the future. ROGER PATRICK JACOBS Giving up the girls and curls of California, " Jack " come to the Academy as a seasoned Navy |unior, and began Plebe year with determination and self- assurance. As a hopeful Navy wrestler, he spent much time contemplating those words of wisdom, " If you can read this sign, you ore pinned. " Fortunately, he was better at handball, the Scubo Club, choir, and on occasional trip to the snow country. Academics were never a problem, as evidenced by the extra gold he wore on his lapels each semester. Rog gamed respect from mids as well as the fairer sex. It was not un- common to see Joke with a brew in one hand and a girl in the other, enpying both equally. Graduation means a chance for more study ot Monterey, and finally to Pensacolo for his wings. WILLIAM ANDERSON KING " M.F.R. " continued his family ' s tradition when he de- cided upon a career of Naval Service starting with Canoe U. After taking core of Plebe year Kinks " began to work on the more important things of life here of USNA - sleep and liberty. A regular pod mon- ster victim, Bill sailed, played fieldboli, song in the Chapel Choir, mopred in Naval Engineering, and still found time to participate in much extracurricular run- ning and applied strength. " Oy-voy ' s " frugal traits and his unca nny ability to moke girls fall in love with him never ceased to amaze his clossmotes. Academics gave him little trouble, and he was almost consistant- ly on Superintendent ' s List and was occasionally on Dean ' s List. Well known for his sense of humor, wit, and friendliness. Bill will prove to be a valuable catch for Navy Line. t % K w f!. MICHAEL DENNIS MALONE The Jones Kid ' was born in Brooklyn and attended Chaminode High School out on Long Island, where his white head could be seen on the football field, rifle ronge, or behind the plate depending on the season. As soon as he fulfilled his childhood desire and re- ported to the Academy, he established himself on the crew teom ond the Superintendent ' s List. Mike ' s biggest claim to fome is the Academy record for los- ing roommates in one year. When Mike ' s not hitch- hiking back and forth between Annapolis ond Long Island, he can usually be found tripping down the stairs at the stadium with the crew team. His fighting spirit and ease at making the most of any situation have been inspiring to all around him and should moke Pensocola a snap for him. HARRY PAUL KONDRICK Coming to us from the 7th Company, " Harry " yielded almost immediotely to the nickname that has re- moined ever since, and The Butcher " became one of the Dirty Dozen ot the end of Plebe summer. A new company might have been a liability for most at that period, but Butch turned his characteristic enthusiasm ond determination toward this task and soon stood out among his new classmotes. It was |ust in Butch ' s personality to excel, and his efforts during Plebe year netted him both stars and on invitation to Spring Boll OS a member of the Varsity Football Squad. After graduation, Butch intends to turn all his efforts toword the earning of the coveted Wings of Gold ' ; with his desire and proven abilities. Butch will cer- tainly attain this gool os easily as he has succeeded here. ROBERT EARL LEWIS This native of Cove Junction, Oregon, entered the Novol Acodemy intent on following in the footsteps of his pilot fother. In spite of the trials of Plebe year and Pete, Louie weathered well. One quality which helped to moke that year easier was his sense of humor, and Bob s presence brightened many a group. Academics, too, brought challenges, and 0300 often found him still squinting at a book, or even - before finals - Studying. Weekends were even busier, for Bob always hod a drag A scrappy athlete, he gave his oil to soccer, football, and the Blue Trampoline; swimming, however, gave its all to this towheoded rock. With the promise and desire Bob hos demon- strated, he should hove no trouble succeeding as a Novol Flight Officer DANIEL DeWITT MILNER Of the many places that Don has lived, he calls McLean, Virginio home. Even living so close could not induce him to the Academy until after he hod mode a 4.0 in " party ' ot Colorado. However, after reaching the Acodemy, he met Kay, who thought it better that Dan should spend his time making a 4.0 in ocodemics and thinking only about her in his extra time. Don complied, and soon his nome appeared on the Dean ' s List. Even more to Kay ' s pleasure, he wos soon pinned, and by second-class year, he gave her an en- gagement ring. Talking with Dan is talking about cars and Kay, whotever happened to Operotions Analysis, his major? Naval Aviation may well consider itself forfunote to hove so fine a twosome as Kay and " The Piper " NEAL JAMES NELSON Neol come to Navy from high and dry, landlocked Thermopolis, Wyoming, with visions of the rugged seafaring life of the high seas in his eyes. Despite a few scrapes with the Math Department, Neal is still standing toe-to-toe and slugging it out with the Aca- demic Department. An avid and competititve hondball enthusiast, Neol could usually be found letting off steam in the courts. He also en|oys soiling and log- ging. As on active member of the Officers Christian Union, Neol has been aided in realizing his true mis- sion in life as a Novol Officer. Whether Neol enters the Fleet as a Navy Flier or os o Surface Line Officer, he is sure to have a positive effect on the Novys fu- ture. Six Hundred Three STEVEN EDGERTON OLMSTEAD Steve came to USNA from some unpronounceable place in upstate New York. The physical part of Plebe year (especially uncier " the Mung " ) was a continua- tion of his rigorous high school sports participation. Mointaining a 2.5 in ocademics was no big sweat for Olmie. " He always storteci the semester with stars in minci, but shooting the breeze about Marine Recon or Marine helos, combined with his study habits for finals alwoys seemed to lower his goal. Since coming to USNA, Steve has taken up Scuba Diving, and rounds out his day with his active participation in one of the many religious activities in and around USNA. Always ready to help anybody out of a tight situotion, Steve will be a welcome addition to the Marine Corps. GREGORY MARK POHER A native Californian, Greg abandoned the sun and fun of the West Coast and arrived at the Academy with a desire to excel, which has remained undaunted throughout. An outdoorsman at heart, Greg thrived upon the sports program at the Academy. Besides being an avid golfer, tennis, and squash player, his interests branched further into skiing, sailing, and scubo diving. But, Greg will most be remembered for his unparalleled academic success. He easily earned his stars every semester, and many a classmate has lourneyed to his door for some impromptu E. I. ond the all-important gouge. On the weekends, the books were left and Gred pursued his sociol life with this same enthusiasm. Following graduation, the subma- rine force will be looking forward to receiving anoth- er fine officer from Mother B. DAVID ALAN PROFFin Dave came straight to the Naval Academy ofter grad- uating from high school in Sanger, California. Evi- dently someone forgot to tell Dave that the academic routine here was tough, because he never seemed to find time to open a textbook, although his grade card doesn ' t show it. Close friends attribute this success to his famous mid-term cram sessions and horizontal study technique. Baseball occupies most of " Spider- man ' s " time, with both out of season and Spring sea- son sessions. Earning his N-star Youngster year will probably always be a bright spot in Dave ' s memories. However, he is by no means limited to baseball, and because of Dave ' s all-around athletic ability, he has participated in most of the sports played at the Acod- emy. Dave is looking forward to earning his wings at Pensacola. PRESTON GODFRED RUSCH From the hills of West Virginia, and the halls of the Greenbrier, Preston came to the walls of Bancroft. One of the selected few on the five-year plan, he vol- unteered for another year of varisty T.V., sprinkled with academics. With an interest in the weird, clair- voyance, mind-reading, and ESP, it is always an expe- rience talking with him. Never a tight man with money, his friends were constantly amazed at some of his purchases: hippie clothes, tarot cards, litho- graphs, and tool kits. Nobody ever met Preston who didn ' t like him. Assuming little, giving a lot, he was quite a friend. He was always one to appreciate the finer things, a filet mignon in the world of scuba steaks. Preston will be a sure success in the service of the sea. CARL CHESTER SMITH, JR. " The Rebel " came to USNA from Little Rock, Missis- sippi, distinguished himself as an expert shot, and earned himself a position on the Varsity pistol team. Never without a date, Carl has upheld the finest tradi- tions of the true Southern gentleman. Due to " Nav- ada ' s " regional accent, however, he encountered many difficulties in assuming the Russian language. Since then, he has " slashed out " in the academic area - a notoble accomplishment for an Aero minor. Being a Navy Junior, " Smitty " knows a volume of sea stories suitable for any and every occasion. Upon graduation, " The Rebel " plans to attain the goals he set for himself, to live a fast life, drive a fast car, and fly the fastest plane the Navy has to offer. " Smitty " will make a lively addition to any squadron. Six Hundred Four kk WILLIAM GLENN SUHON Brunswick, Georgia had much to lose when Woody headed North to USNA. The fact that his heart re- mained in Dixie was obvious, because of the stors and bars which hung over his pad. His classmates did not hove to look for to see that his achievements up north mode the Southland ' s loss our gain. Early in Plebe year, crew became his first enthusiasm and a seot in the varsity boot his goal. Not one to limit himself, choir, N-Club, and on odeptness at academics kept him busy, ond he enjoyed success in the dragging de- partment, though he hod one particular picture he iked to show. The future should hold much for " Tfie Sutts, " and Navy Line will undoubtedly reap the rich benefits of his rare sense of humor as well as his ver- satility, ROBERT MICHAEL VINEY The son of a submariner from ' 47 ' s 24th Compony and a resident of the Submarine Capitol of the World, " it serves as no surprise that the Vines " studies ond efforts hove been directed at accumulot- ing a record to present to the Nuclear Power Program . . . and certain odmirol. Bob s clutch performances during finals account for his success and the remin- der of the semester finds Bob wandering the halls en- gaging in extraneous bull sessions, listening to someone ' s new sounds, or even helping with an aco- demic or social problem. In other spore moments, Robby can be found interpolating his QPR, or juggling his finances to make the big investment in his dream car. On the horizon, however, looms a poir of golden dolphins which drive him on to whot oppears an ad- venturous, successful career. V ' f 5, t f f ft f « .Si .. k£i.4.

Six Hundred Eight i i;: ' Vr " ' -y ' kill TIMOTHY MICHAEL AHERN A product of Bergen Catholic High in New Jersey, Tim brought with him to the Naval Academy o dedication few midshipmen could match. Drifty, " as his many friends know him, met with much success on the ath- letic field. His leadership and ability in his favorite sport, football, pushed the Battalion football team to many victories and Brigade Championships. In the winter, he played an important role for the Company fieldball team. Although management was his minor, he was always ready to help any person hoving trouble in his favorite subject, moth. His spirit will certainly reward him with many successes in his fu- ture endeavors as a Naval Officer, and his leadership quality will push him to the front of any undertaking he ottempts. DOUGLAS ALLEN BACKES Doug, more popularly known as " Man Mountain, " came to us from his home in Cold Spring, Minnesota. After a lean year os a Plebe, Doug found a new love in devouring all the food he found within reach as a Youngster, thereby earning his nickname. Being a track man in high school, Doug was naturally drawn to his old haunts of the shot put and discus circles. But, fate hod it otherwise and Doug found fame and fortune with the 35-pound weight and the 16-pound hammer. Whether he can use his muscle as well os his brain in his chosen field of oceanography, remains to be seen. Doug ' s confidence in himself and his ability to influence people will make him a truly fine officer and leader. LANCE CLABAUGH Lance Clabough quickly picked up the name " Clutch, " because of his stellof performance Plebe Year. Lance has wanted to fly as long as he remembers, but in the sixth grade he set his sights on Naval Aviation. Hav- ing spent nearly all his life in Colorado, Clutch is con- vinced the West is besti Clutch became known as the man to see when in academic diffic ulty, by edging along for five academic semesters before coming up with a sat. CUM. of 2.01. Lance comes from a military family. His father was o B-25 instructor-pilot during World War II. Like his brother, a Navy ROTC graduate of the University of Colorado, who was a drinking buddy of a 5th Battalion company officer while on first class cruise, Clutch hopes to fly Phantoms. DAVID OLIVER COUINS David, DOC, entered the Naval Academy straight from Babylon High School in Babylon, New York. Since then, Dave has set the record for the most " Youngster afternoons " in the bog. He has participated in many company sports throughout his four years, and hos been on several Brigade Championship teams. Al- though not known for his good grades. Dove is minpr- ing in Marine Engineering and hopes to apply this to his Naval career. Dave is well known fo r his Long Island parties during leave periods. A great T.V. fan, DOC is seen in the wardroom regularly. Upon grodua- tion, Dave plans to go Surface Line and with his dy- namic personality, he will be a welcome addition to the Naval Service. Six Hundred Nin« MARK JAMES GRUSSENDORF Born in Great Lakes, Illinois, Mark came to the Acade- my from Salem, Oregon. Being a Marine Corps Junior, he found it relatively easy to make the transition into Navy life. After a short stay on the Plebe wrestling team, " Gus " switched to intramural sports, partici- pating in Batt track and Bott cross country. Then he went on to be a member of the Varsity track and cross country teams. Though distance running was a favorite pastime, this mid did not cut his liberty hours short. Many happy weekends were spent in Virginia Beach and Washington D. C. The Marine Corps is high on his service selection list. His strong love for, and desire to serve, his country will make him a valuable officer. KIRK CHRISTIAN HANSEN Kirk, known to his classmates as " Pit, " come to Navy from Cedar Falls, Iowa. It was there that he devel- oped on excellent background in academics which allowed him to keep his finger perpetually on the coast button. He could often be seen during study hour wrestling either in the halls or in one of his classmates ' rooms. During the foil, his afternoons were taken up by varsity 150 lb. football practice. Kirk wasn ' t idle in the social areas either. He was never one to pass up a drink, a party, or a beautiful girl, and is still developing his tolerance toward the former. Kirk ' s warm personality will be an asset wherever he goes, and as it stands now, you will be able to see him at the Pensacolo Officers ' Club upon graduation. JAMES REID HINTON Jim came to Navy from Mechonicsburg, Ohio, where he graduated llth in his high school class. Known for his non-reg haircuts and his success with women, Jim enjoys o good party, a strong drink and a fast car. A management minor, J. R. struggled through the Naval Science Department ' s demanding curriculum and al- ways managed to keep one step ahead of the Aca- demic Board. " Hints " was a member of the Brigade Champhionship 5th Battalion Football team for which he played a tough right guard. He also pitches a mean game of Softball and con hold his own on a basket- ball court. Jim hopes to go Navy Air after graduation and Pensacolo will find him to be a hard worker and a good student.

GARY LLOYD KNOCK Gary came directly to the beautiful shores of the Sev- ern from Thurston High School outsicie of Detroit. Not the greatest sfucJent to walk through the yard, Gary maintained a respectable QPR in a tough Math minor. Gory is known for his quick wit and love of sports. A star on the company basketball and fast pitch Softball teams, Gory helped lead these teams to several bri- gade championships. Perhaps Gary s greatest attri- bute was his ability to meet and go out with good looking girls. On any weekend, you could see Gary going out the main gate with o beautiful girl on his arm. Gory plans to go Navy Air and with his abilities, the months at Pensacolo should pose no problems. NORMAN ALBERT KONEMAN, III After ottending a year at the University of Texas and spending 19 months in the Fleet, Butch " finolly mode it to the Boot School. " Hailing from La Marque, Texas, he is well known for his overwhelm- ing pride in onything that even vaguely relates to the Lone Star State. Being on outstanding student and dedicated athlete, he frequented the Deans List and the Superintendent ' s List. After humbling academics at Navy, he aimed his efforts at having the shiniest deck in the history of the Academy. As informal lead- er of the Screaming-Six, " Butch endeared himself to Classmotes ond Plebes alike. Unsur« about service selection, but very sure about his desire to attend post-groduote school. Butch will undoubtedly be a success in anything that he undertakes in the future. DAVID ALLYN LARSON Dove come to the Academy from the toll green moun- tains of Oregon. A standout in high school academics, football, and wrestling, Dave continued this athletic excellence in football and Rugby. Academics served as a part time deterrent to sleep and sports but Dove never allowed anything to interfere with his sociol life. The fairer sex, preferobly blondes, were and still ore his favorite pastime. It wos a rare weekend that found Dove in the Holl. His grades were good though not outstanding, due to the energetic efforts of the engineering deportment. We feel that Dove, a mix- ture of determination and an eosygoing nature, has a tremendous future os o pilot and Novol Officer. JEFFERY ALLEN LEHMAN Old Man Rivers " come to Navy from Californio. An enthusiastic ond integral port of several intramurol teoms, Jeff was responsible for many victories in the 13th and 2 5th companies. Pop " will be remembered for his friendly and easygoing personality. Members of 7.2 will remember Mr. Lehman for oil his kindly " guidance during Plebe Detail. Jeff ' s fondest memories will most certainly be of the Wires Department, in which he excelled. Rivers " rarely violated his policy of sleeping a minimum of 50% of every day. Jeff wos always big on blind dotes and seldom got hurt. Sec- ond Class Summer sow Jeff meet several attractive girls. Jeff plons to pursue o future in Navy Air. His congenial personality will be o welcome addition to any wardroom. PHILIP JOSEPH MAGALEni, JR. Born and raised in Eostchester, New York, Phil came to the Naval Acodemy only four days ofter graduating from high school. Taking occasional breaks from his letter writing marathons, he kept his QPR in a con- stant, but gradual, upswing. Mags " actively parti- cipated in infromurols, including heavyweight foot- ball, Softball, volleyboll, despite being the proud owner of o USNA knee. As a fan, he bocks New York Teams 100%. When not on the athletic fields or in sick boy, Phil, always the ladies man, could be seen strolling about the yard with a different girl on his arm almost every week. A record breaking perform- once at the roil during Youngster cruise, coupled with on enlightening 2 c summer at Pensacolo, turned Phils eyes skyward. He plans to go Navy Air upon groduotion. RAYMOND LEE MAST Hoving migrated from the rolling farmland of Aurora, Illinois, to the shores of the Severn, Roy hod little trouble stepping into the Navy way of life. He is the third member of his family to enter the Naval Service, serving behind his father and grondfother. Through- out his four yeors at the Acodemy, Harvey ployed Varsity track ond football. His wide range of interests include girls, scuba diving, and lasers. Roy is also well known to the USNA science department for the ex- periments " he conducted with his pulsed ruby loser in Michelson Hall. Following graduation, with o minor in electrical engineering, Roy hopes to enter Nuclear Power School to begin a career in the Nuclear Subma- rine Service. With his dynamic personality and friend- ly smile, Roy will find a rewarding coreer in the Silent Service. Six Hundred Eleven CHARLES VINCENT MURPHY As a youth scoring over the hills of Belen, New Mexi- co, Murph decided thot the University of Navy was the only life for him. Murph has been soaring since, and has adopted one-hundred percent to the Navy way. An expert with stereo sound systems and hot cars, Murph never lets ocodemics interfere with his elec- tronic manipulations or auto performance charts. An avid participant in rock-time, football, Rugby, and other intramural sports, Murph is the only man in history to complete a chin-up hanging out a window of Bancroft Hall. Being an avid air enthusiast has led Murph on the hot pursuit and acquisition of an Aero minor. A calm, outgoing personality and a sincere dedicotioii to duty will make Murph a valuable contri- bution to the Naval Service. CHRISTIAN CHARLES NELSON Chris " Rot " Nelson was born in New York ond claims Brooklyn os his home. Having been a tremendous ath- lete OS well OS a fine student, " Rat " came to Canoe U. right out of high school. During his stay here, he man- aged to divide his time pretty well between athletics and having a good time, excelling in eoch. Rot never was much for studying, but he still managed to beat the system and end up on the Superintendent ' s or Dean ' s List nearly every semester with his major of Naval Architecture. Known to his friends as " the Plan- ner, " Chris would always come up with the best parties and trips for every weekend or leave. His fine personality and quick wit coupled with his intelli- gence and leadership abilities will moke Chris a fine Noval Officer. DENNIS DEAN OLSON Coming to the Naval Academy from the cold, dry state of Nebraska, " Ols " should hove been disorient- ed in the warm, wet atmosphere here, but he wasn ' t. Quickly overcoming his swimming difficulties, he hos been active in a wide range of company sports. He has also succeeded in outwitting the Academic De- partment by continually raising his academic standing by his diligent efforts. As the result of many week- ends of extra effort, " Ols " has developed a superior aptitude for the professional aspects of life here at Navy. His stamina and determination ore two out- standing assets which will serve him well in the fu- ture. Next time you hear a plane, look up, if might be " Ols " flying by. FREDERICK CHAPMAN PECK A local boy from nearby Millersville, Maryland, Corky wos rorely found in Boncroft Hall during weekends. Still, he found time for academics and fought his way up from poor start Plebe Year to the Superintend- ent ' s List, thanks to the Bull Department. When not out in town with his one and only. Corky would prob- obly be found in the boxing rings of MocDonough Hall. Boxing wos his passion and his skill eorned him championships during Plebe Summer, in Battalion boxing and the Brigade Championship his Plebe Year. His athletic interest did not end there, os Battalion football and Company Softball teoms olso welcomed him. After graduation. Corky will embork on a career of service in the Marine Corps. STEVEN S ' REINEMUND Miami, Florida, has lent the services of Steven S. Reinemund to the Naval Academy. Ever since the first day of Plebe Summer, " Mund " hos opplied oil of his skills ond knowledge to the military, academic ond social aspects of the Academy. As a result, he hos risen to the upper ranks of his doss. He is one of the management boys from Luce Hall. Steve also hos be- come known to the class of ' 72 as the most demand- ing person on the Plebe Detail, and by the Class of ' 70 OS the only man to stand in Sleep Hollow. Probably best known os " Sweat Beads, " Steve has been known to take things o bit serious, like the time he was seen as second clossman practicing his salute in the mir- ror, or the time he brushed off his white works. JOHN DANIEL ROGERS John came to the Navol Academy from the metropolis of Boise, Idaho. Since his dad was o Commander in the Novy, John had long hoped to come to LJSNA. After bit of trouble with academics Plebe Yeor, John buckled down and kept himself above that 2.00 borderline, oceing out in his " Bull " courses. John ' s superior knowledge of the Novy helped to moke life at Canoe U. easier for him. John was olwoys the first person the Plebes went to to find out answers to pro- fessionol questions. " Jersey " John excelled in compa- ny basketball, football, volleyball, fast-pitch softboll, coke-drinking, and was on several Brigade champion- ship teams. His enthusiasm and spirit ore second to none. No motter whot John may choose os his line of duty, he will be one of the best men in his field. Six Hundred Twelve ' ' . t: MICHAEL PHILIP ROTHSTEIN ■ Hum you, Pock! ' This short phrase would only des- cribe Stem, ■ notive of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Since arrival at USNA, Mike has been noted for his ready assistance end o |ovial personality no matter what circumstances. Determination is another of Mikes ot- tributes. Though not a letter winner yet, we are sure he ' ll see plenty of oction with the Big Blue before graduation. " Stein " quit wrestling after Plebe year to devote extra time to studies in an Aerospace Engi- neering minor. His endeavors have been rewarded by good grades. An avid sports fan, Mike shows the ins and outs of almost every major sport, possessing a storehouse of focts in most areas of athletics. Mikes ready wit and flexible personality will make him an asset to any branch of the service he chooses. PAUL scon SEMKO Scooter come to Navy from Manhattan High School in New York City, where he gomed All-City honors as a shortstop. Since establishing himself here, he has achieved a starting position on both the boseboll and bosketball teams. Not wanting to take second place in any field, Scotty has also maintained a high aca- demic overage in spite of his minor in Electrical Science. When not involved with athletics or academ- ics, Ko " is known to prefer Budweiser and beautiful girls, though not necessarily in that order. Second Class summer found him to be a member of the Plebe Detail and 72 will remember Scotty as the one who guided them through the transition from civilian life to Navy life. Scott has proven himself to be a very ca- pable leader of his fellow midshipmen and we feel sure that a successful career awaits his graduation. JOSEPH FRANK SKERBEC, JR. Hailing from Parma Heights, Ohio, the " Bee " is defi- nitely a unique midshipman. He managed to maintain a 2.00 cum every semester, attributing it to his habit of fifteen weeks of rest and one week of study. This is quite on accomplishment since he blundered into the Weapons Department Plebe Year. In athletics, Joe was company standout. Never interested in practice, he was always there come gome time to odd class to the team. When there was something better to do, Joe did it. He could be found ploying bridge, wotching the tube, or in the bog. But one place you would never find him wos in the barber shop. No stranger to the fairer sex, Joe is a gentleman who prefers blondes, brunettes, and redheads. His fine personality, ability to moke friends, ond eosy manner will make htm o fine addition to the Naval Service. i i Six Hundred Thirteen KERRY JON SMITH Being a Navy Junior, Kerry lived many places before graduating from high school in Newport, Rhode Island, and coming to his new home on the Severn. After " grueling " Plebe Summer, the eternal battle against the academic departments began. Due to mis- understandings with the math and science depart- ments, Smitty turned to the Dago profs for a kind word, and got if in French. Being a member of the track team for four years, Kerry was a fierce competi- tor and proud of his accomplishments. He liked to think of himself as o great lover, yet remained " pure as the driven snow, " and was always a standout at porties. Kerry will undoubtedly become an outstand- ing officer, and a credit to the Academy and his coun- try. BRUCE MICHAEL STEVENS Having spent three years in the Marines prior to his entry into the United States Naval Academy, Bruce quickly picked up the nickname, " Grunt. " Not used to the quiet life of the Marble Monastery, Grunt quickly ran into rocky shoals in the Conduct Department. Tak- ing all in stride and funneling his energies into the Scuba Club, Bruce could be seen three mornings a week at 0445 dragging his scuba gear to the pool for his morning dip. Living for weekends, Bruce could usually be counted on to disappear quickly and reap- pear m time for formations. After his four years of what he called TAD in the Navy at the USNA, Bruce will be ready to return to the Marines, and we ore sure he will make a fine Marine Corps Officer. ROBERT TAMBURINI Be it on the soccer field, with the women, or over the wall, Tombo was always leading the way. Coming from the heartland of schoolboy soccer. Northern Jer- sey, he developed a drive and desire to win and cor- ned it to the Academy. And of course with that hot blooded Italian ancestry, he did have many traditions to live up to regarding the opposite sex. More than one evening was spent trying to figure out how to ap- pease one girl so that he could go out with another. Tombo ' s candor and easygoing manner should moke him success in any branch of the service, but as it looks now, Naval Aviation will gain a fine young offi- cer at graduation. DOUGLAS scon THOMPSON " Dog, " as he is affectionately known by his class- mates, came to USNA from Bellingham, Washington. Always one to complain about the infringements made on his study time, he wasn ' t stopped from com- pleting an Aerospace Engineering ma|or. He lent his talents to Plebe soccer, but realized it wasn ' t his sport and turned to those aggressive games of Battalion football, Rugby, and Company fieldboll during the winter. Never one to be pushed around on the athletic field, he was even tougher during the nightly wres- tling matches in the hall. Scotty will definitely be a credit to Naval Air, but may hove trouble finding an NFO or copilot to ride with him since many have sworn they ' ll never set foot in a car he ' s driving. It definitely looks like he ' s destined to fly a plane with no one else in it.

Six Hundred Sixteen ROBERT WILLIAM ATWELL Hailing from Severna Park, Maryland, Bob was never very far from fiome. Following the footsteps of his father, Bob was right in the swing of military life. An avid athlete in high school, Bob brought his track shoes with him and was a real asset to both the in- door and outdoor track teams. Never one to find aca- demics the best way to spend an evening. Bob did manage to do well while spending hours on the tele- phone. Finding change in short supply. Bob would shoot the breeze ' or play his favorite folk songs on his guitar. A philosopher of heart, Bob hod an answer to any and all questions brought to him. Known to his classmates for his candid impersonations and |Ovial manner. Bob will be on outstanding addition to the Naval Service WALTER ELLIOT BAHR Better known as Mr. Bare ' to the Plebes, Casey ' s All-American athletic talents steered him to Annapo- lis. His pessimistic philosophy has been unparalleled in the history of the Academy, and a constant source of scrutiny to Goose and Annis. This trait surpasses only that of his futile attempts to get things done in the areas of professional training. Casey will under- take aviation training when he departs from Ban- croft, leaving only a special thanks to Leon Uris and Ted Mark for getting him through those occasional dull moments in the Hall. Casey ' s graduation will mark the end of his midshipman career, leaving but one question unanswered; Did he make the right deci- sion in deciding to make the United States Naval Academy as his Alma Mater? URRY VERNON BEATTY Larry has reversed the usual trend since coming to the Naval Acad emy. After doing very well Plebe year, his academic performance began to decline, as he com- pleted a Naval Engineering ma|or. Still, he ' s been on the Superintendent ' s List every semester and worn stars three times. During Youngster year, he suddenly realized that life at ' Navy also included dating and sports. Hes one of the world ' s greotest baseball buffs " and never has enough to soy about his home- town team - the St. Louis Cardinals. Larry has also participated in company fieldball and Softball. His only ambition on graduation is to go to Nuclear Power School and earn his dolphins " We only hope Admiral Rickover doesn t mind being asked, who pitched the 7th gome of the World Series in 1934? " GARY WALTER BETHKE Gory comes to us from a small mining town in the mountains of Idaho. Many enjoyable years were spent engaged in skiing and other outdoor activities near his Dad ' s fish hatchery. Plebe year found the lanky " Spud " burning up the Plebe cross-country course, while succeeding seasons found him running for the Battalion track team. Throughout the year, considera- ble amounts of his time and efforts were spent with the Drum and Bugle Corps. Many a midnight hour at Novy has found Gory hard at work on his Aero maior. As consequence. Superintendent s List was olways there, and more often than not, stars. Even with his academic burden, Gary always foynd time for party fun and the fairer sex. Plans for post-graduate work, followed by Aviation School at Pensocolo, should make for a successful career in Navy Air. Six Hundred Seventeen . _vj« hisiw dm iioB, to PHILLIP WAYNE CAMPBELL A farm-bred boy from Leetonia, Ohio, Phil come to the Academy by way of San Diego, Memphis, Sanford, and finally Boinbridge, Maryland. It was the long way around, but Phil, used to hard work, was more than able to handle it in stride. His rating in the fleet led Phil into the wonderful world of wires, where he has managed to stay at least one |ump ahead of the Wires Department. Phil isn ' t one to get bogged down in lot of studies though, as his active social life indi- cates. For some reason, Phil slowed down a little after second class summer, but, he still managed to get around. Phil plans to go Navy Line after gradua- tion of the Navy, and he will provide thot service with one more capable officer. ROBERT CARL CROSBY Bob mode his tour at Annapolis a pleasant one both for himself and those around him. " Crusher " was al- ways ready with a good word and proved to be a truly engaging person. Grades were never o problem for Bob though the pod monster was known to grab him more often than the books. As a night person Bob was never up end around til the sun went down. Room-wrestling, battalion cross-country and indoor track held his athletic interest. Off campus, skiing was his favorite with many a tale of broken poles and mangling falls resulting from his top to bottom dare- devil trips. Encouraged by thoughts of his girl back home, Xros " made the best of his Academy years and is looking forward to a career in Nuclear Powei, talorl Jmnjtk igglbel niltijiil ieo(li,liu IciMie h, fti ilistwl irajlit fi m tij ' miol limifi ymiij ■lefni Wliiij IKK ' •Jin, I ifmjrj iKltoiI KtpOK kiseriie niUtri Six Hundred Eighlei THOMAS EDWARD DICKEY Throughout the 26th Company, Diggy is known for his financial wizardry. By using his vast knowledge of monetary problems, he succeeded in not only invest- ing his own money, but thot of his innocent compa- triots. When not pursuing his quest for money, Diggy divides his time between footboll ond weight-lifting, both of which combine to eorn him the title of body- beautiful. Among his outstanding qualities is his abil- ity to acquire and store lost items. This trait will no doubt be of great use when 20-200 vision causes him to go Supply Corps. Toms stock market genius may well enable him to make thot sought after first mil- lion, but keeping it may prove too hard to handle. ROBERT MIKE DOOLIN Recognized by a heavy beard and a glass of Southern Comfort and Scope, " Robert Mike Doolin con be seen during the daylight hours clod in sun glasses and driv- ing the Vette his daddy bought him. In his relations with girls, Rocky ' has been known to be hard to reach, but when the contact is made, the females beg for more.

BRUCE KNAPP DOUBLEDAY Dubs come to the Academy out of high school in Ar- lington, Virginia. A bull jock, ' Bruce hopes to fly upon graduotion. His biggest decision now is whether to get Vette or not, and what to do with that girl. ' He is probably best known for his sense of humor and his toxi service. Bruce hos been known to laugh for as long os five straight minutes at the point of a finger, and he is the originator of some of the Acodemy s least known quips. As prexy of the Dubs Toxi Company, o non-profit organization, he was ol- ways good for o ride to D. C. every leove period. With his sense of humor and optimism, B. K. is ossured of an interesting career in Navy Air. MARK ROBERT EDWARDS Born ond roised on o form in Modesto, California, Mark come straight to the Novol Academy from Dow- ney High School, where he developed the athletic abilities he hos used so much here at Annapolis. As a member of the Plebe swimming and squash teams, then as a member of the vorsity cross-country and crew teams, Eds hos worked hard for Navy. His academic endeavors ore in the area of oc eanography, but his deepest interests in the world of academics and athletics ore truly unique. If left up to himself, he would minor in term popers and letter in calisthenics. Always ready to lend o helping hand to anyone, his future includes o high school sweetheart and a prom- ising career in Navy Line. WALLACE EUGENE GUNTER, JR. Wolly first left Alexandria, Virginio, in the direction of V.P.I., but after two years in the Corps of Cadets, he decided that it was time Novy found out what it was oil about. It was soon obvious to everyone that Wolly hod learned o lot about sweoting the system " ot Tech and wos eager to pass this on. When not seeing his teacher, Wally could be found on the Boy soiling, or else in the room fishing one of his roommates. After graduation, Wolly is liable to go Novy Line, with the hope of transferring to his first love, the Seobees. Wolly is good midshipman, a loyal classmate, and will moke an even finer Naval Officer. PATRICK MICHAEL HOGAN Pat come to the cold, gray, sunless world of Annapolis from the Land of Eternal Sunshine, Miami, Florida. Since then. Pot has become known for his easy-going noture and constont willingness to help those with academic troubles. Although he is majoring in Aero- space Engineering, the end of a semester usually finds Pot on the Deon s or Superintendent s Lists. This is a direct result of hard study and burning the midnight oil. The end of the ocademic day will find Pot in some othletic activity - tennis, fieldboll, or Softball, de- pending on the season. With the breok of winter, the golfers migrote to the golf course on weekends, and Pot will be found os on ardent member of this group. Wit h strong desire to wear the Wings of Gold and academic excellence. Pot should moke an outstonding oviator and Novol Officer. MARK ALLAN HOKE Mo " come to the Naval Academy from the asphalt |ungle of LaPorte, Indiana, on the strong recommen- dation of the Honorable Adam Clayton Powell. Mo di- rected his academic interest toward the field of oceanography, and split his leisure time between the rack and " Deadman " comic books. While virtually all of Mo ' s classmates developed a tremendous apprecia- tion of his |ovial and friendly personality. Mo devel- oped a tremendous appreciation for the taste of Bud- weiser beer. Never known to be a dull boy at a party, Mo could always be found right in the thick of the ac- tion during the weekend |aunts to the Sheraton Park in D. C. Upon groduation. Mo hopes to become an NFO, but will undoubtedly be a winner no matter what field he finally chooses. GLENN ALBERT JEWELL Glenn, or " Chooch " as he ' s been known, hail? from Ferndale, Maryland. A former member of that well- known local bond, Johnny Soul ond the Manchesters, and a bluebelt in Karate, he continues in pursuit of these arts as an integral member of the NA-10, the varsity lightweight crew team, and the Scuba Club. Even with all these activities, the weekend will still find Glenn pursuing his favorite pastime - the fairer sex. While minoring in Oceanography, Glenn plans to fly after graduation, either with Marine or Navy Air. He has been a great asset to the Company and the Brigade with his spirit and enthusiasm, and we all know that Chooch will carry this enthusiasm over into all his future endeavors. DAVID JOSEPH LEE Dave came to Navy from McLean, Virginia, full of pride and enthusiasm for the blue and gold. Following in his father ' s footsteps, Dave managed to dodge the academic board and the OOD ' s most of the time. Due to his trusting nature, one could find Dave being fished in on almost anything going around. But, by al- ways making the best of it, he managed to come out smiling, and, much to the |oy of his roommates, still OS trusting as ever. Dave never gave up on anything he set out to accomplish. Whether m the classroom, in the hall, or out on the intramural field, Dave always tried the hardest of anyone. His sense of sportsman- ship and fair ploy will be remembered by his class- mates as one of his best attributes. Six Hundred Twenty _ ' w r. t, . 1 r MICHAEL BENCE PATE Mike has l ived in several places around the United States, but he calls a form In the hills neor Clinton, Arkansas his home.

Since then, he has spent many hours w orking on various pro|ects in the Morine Engineering Depart- ment, and has become o regular on the Superintend- ent s and Dean s Lists. His leisure time is spent point- ing, reading, riding his motorcycle, and in keeping at least three dates on o standby status. If Mike doesn t go on to his Masters degree after graduation, the engineering spaces of some ship will receive a very capable officer, who like his father before him, will keep up a full head of steam. RALPH CALDWELL PAULK The pride and |oy of Fitzgerald, Georgio, came out of the swamps in possibly his first pair of shoes to Navy, where he proceeded to burn up the Weapons Depart- me nt with his swamp sense. Never one to be tied down, Ralph claimed his true love was his pad, where he caught up on his sleep - especially during exam weeks. Despite this, he made Superintendents List with constant regularity. Due to the choir. Glee Club, and his other extra-curriculor activities, Ralph almost became Navy ' s first day student. It was in his travels that Ralph left a string of broken hearts, but never a broken promise. Ralph ' s sense of duty ond his pride in his country and his Navy will follow him in whatever branch he decides to make his career. ROBERT LEON PERCH Bob found his way to the Academy via Miami of Ohio. Once here, Bob devoted himself to the pursuit of aca- demic excellence, successfully fending off the assaults of the various academic departments, and more than once finding himself on the hallowed ground of the 4.0. Not limited to the field of academic endeovor. Bob could also be found excelling in mtromurols on the gridiron and the soccer field. Along with sports, one of his special interests was one particular girl who has brightened more than one leave owoy from Mother B. Quiet yet precise, Bob possesses the quali- ties that ore essential to command ond a successful future in the Naval Service. i ERIC ANDREW PETERS Eric hails from Syracuse, New York, where he gradu- oted as an honor student in Nottingham High School. A superb high school athlete, Eric was a member of the baseball team until a bock injury ended his playing doys. He has since excelled in compony sports and helped win the Brigade hand-ball championship. As an avid believer in competition, Eric always tried to do a little bit better than the other guy. He carried this through to academics and quickly found a spot on the Dean ' s List. Being a Novel Architecture slash, Eric had good sense of artistic creation. In his spore time, which was not often, Eric tooled with his sports car. His willingness to do a good |ob will help him take his place as o Naval Officer.

His primary goal on graduation is the Immedi- ate Masters program, but he is unsure beyond that - |ust as long as he avoids wearing green. THOMAS STEWART SHER Our boy Sonny, the flower child from Son Francisco, bowleggedly strolled through Canoe U carrying a football in one hand and a book of poetry in the other. Always the toughest man on the field, whether it was running on the gridiron or tripping through the gorden of love - Tommy always emerged on top. Sonny hod no beods academically, as he ma|ored in Bull both in the classroom and out. Most of his time was taken up either shining the star above his " N " or figuring out where he wos going to put his next one. If it wasn ' t football, it was out of season party hop- ping or women that occupied most of his thoughts. Navy Line will claim our beloved 26th Company Plato upon graduation, and whether he chooses to belong to Uncle Sam ' s Navy or to be Uncle Sam - Thomas Stewart Sher will get the |ob done. RICHARD ALEXANDER STEARNS Rick has succeeded in establishing for himself a repu- tation OS an industrious and competent individual both in and out of the classroom. Dividing his time here at the Academy between trying to keep up with his systems engineering ma|or and quarterbocking his company heavyweight football team, he has had little time left for any earthly pursuits. But, away from the grounds Puffy has left little room for doubt about his prowess on the sociol gridiron. His exploits with numerous dollies have become legend among his classmates along with his avid devotion to the Mod Attire of The Civilian World After a brief lount in Post Graduate School, a future in Nuclear Power awaits him, OS does o full measure of success, which he truly deserves. An unswerving friend and a strong ally, Rick has left his mark on his clossmates thot have known him. JAMES MEDFORD TARKINGTON Jim left Cincinnati, Ohio, to |oin the crowd at USNA, but found new home in New Orleans when his fam- ily moved there Plebe year. His sports here hove in- cluded baseball, Plebe football, fieldball, softboll, soc- cer, and his favorite, handball. Jim began in moth, but switched to monagement ofter Youngster yeor, o move he hosn t regretted, as he became very inter- ested in the subiect. Tarks has worked hard from the day he arrived and inspired others around him to do the same. He has yet to decide on a career, but it ' s Aviation v. Marines at the moment. Whichever he chooses will gam a great prospect in James. GARY LEE VINE During o one-year attendonce at Oregon State Univer- sity, Gory eorned the nickname of Mother " - a title which fittingly wos corried over to his life at the Academy. His impeccable mannerism and meticulous organization, coupled with his insatiable curiosity, mokes Mother " a fitting epithet. Gory was a fre- quent member of both the Deon ' s and Superintend- ent ' s Lists. He provided o constant source of help to those experiencing ocodemic difficulty, and succeeded in obtaining a double ma|or in math and physics. Gary s two most satisfying accomplishments did not occur in the academic area, however. The first wos his emergence from a mildly interested sport spectotor to on enthusostic porticipant in company sports. The sec- ond was discovering his bride-to-be. Nuclear Power will be happy recipient of Gary ' s talents. ' . SECOND CLASS LEFT TO RIGHT FROM BACK ROW; Ed Kaiser, K, T. Schwelm, Tex Skinner, T.

When not engaged in aca- demics or athletics, he could usually be found envel- oped by the pad monster, and on weekends, he could normally be counted on to be eigher zooing it " or gliding beneath the waves with a tank strapped to his back. Upon graduation, Carl should realize one of his life-long ambitions, flying, and hopefully a career in Naval Aviation. JOHN STACY AUCKLAND John, commonly known as Auck " or Ox, ' was born in Annapolis, the son of a Naval Academy graduate. Although his Dad didn ' t Blue and Gold " him to death, John was unable to sever the psychological umbilical cord and was yo-yo ' d back from Torrance, California at the end of his high school days. The Ox started out as a history minor, but the discovery of a flair for technology and a concern for the future found him overloading in pursuit of o mechanical en- gineering ma|or. A conscientious student, John fre- quented the Superintendent s and Dean ' s List and still found time to exercise his ability as one of the com- pany s leading basketball players. Plans for the future include the immediate masters program and subma- rine school. The sub-surface forces ore assured of gaining a fine officer. RICHARD COLE BUFF Rick come to Annapolis from Youngstown, Ohio, via Bordentown Military Institute and the Navy Reserve. Puff, " as he is known, started on the Plebe baseball and basketball teams. Giving up baseball as a sopho- more, he won his varsity letter in basketball as a jun- ior. An economics mapr, Puff was an involuable aid to all toking the economics core course. Despite his College Boards, Rick proved that with hard work any- one can make the Superintendent ' s List, as he did with consistency. His high aptitude for the service en- abled him to be chosen for the Plebe Detail, on expe- rience he considers most rewarding. As for service selection. Rick ' s first choice was his fiancee, but he chose Navy Line, dismissing Nuclear Subs upon learn- ing that they remain submerged for two months while on station. HOWARD WESLEY DAWSON, JR. On any fall or spring day, Pat could be found out sailing in the waters surrounding Navy, Neither dinghies nor yawls proved to be very difficult for Dymmhite. ' Academics were |ust as easy, since he was permanent member of both the Superintend- ent s and Dean ' s Lists since Plebe year Coming direct- ly from Mt. Prospect, Illinois High School to the Naval Academy, Pot has since considered Portage Lake, Michigan as his home town. From here comes his sec- ond greod love, surpassed only by soiling, skiing. One of the most likeable members of the company, his first choice service selection night might well be civil- lon line. But, no motter what path he chooses to fol- low after graduation, his desire to do his very best in everything will bring credit to himself and the Navy. CLEMENT PAUL DELTETE Skip come to Chesapeake Boy Country " from the far West and a little town called Puyallup, Washing- ton. Before graduating from high school, he hod shown himself to be an excellent student with very little sweat and toil. He had very little trouble ad|ust- ing to the ways of the Academy having come from a Navy family. However, he did discover very quickly that the academics would not be as easy as in high school But, it wasn ' t long before he bore down and became o permanent member of the Star Club. An excellent sport. Delete ' was on integral port of the company soccer, foofboll and softball teams. It is a certainty that the Silent Service of the Deep will bene- fit significantly from his personality, drive, and mo- tivation. Six Hundred Twenty-si) ■»; (I oil neke LLOYD DAVIS EADIE, JR. or Weird Lloyd or A. J. is probably best known for his reputation at the Pensacolo beer blasts. The com- pany s permanent ICOR hails from Bozemon, Monta- na, coming to USNA with a |oy stick in his hand and rudder pedals on his feet. He can t wait to climb into the meanest machine that flies after graduation, never famous for his knowledge of the Reg Book, Lloyd has incredibly avoided the Executive Depart- ment from reveille to tops which seem to be one and the same for him, since he lives in the pad. When he is up, though, simple question about his wife ' could blow a night better than the latest issue of Play- boy. Lloyd accredits his success to his hair style, massive build, and meticulous study habits. They should put him in ' good stead in ony mans Navy. JOHN ANTHONY GILLCRIST Arriving ot USNA fresh out of high school in Norfolk, Gills, OS he IS known by his friends, has become on asset to the Acodemy and its swimming team. After being offered the position of manager on the Plebe swimming team, John defied the coach by winning his vorsity letter as o Youngster. When not in the Natoto- rium. Gills could be found studying for his ma|or in that great academic subject, horizontal geometry. His idea that o strong body needs much sleep left little time for studies but little time was all he needed since his battles with the Acodemic Departments proved quite successful. With o true sense of loyalty, responsibility, and honor, John will always be a credit to himself and whotever branch of the service he chooses. Six Hundred TwenTy-seven FRANZ MICHAEL GOniEIB Cradling a lacrosse ball and kicking a soccer boll, Gotts come to the Academy from far off Landsdowne, Maryland, 28 minutes and 14 seconds up Ritchie High- way. Once off the athletic fields, and out of his fire engine red Vette, Gotts could usually be found be- moaning his grades, although they consistently hov- ered around the 3.00 mark. But, his myriad of ever- changing girls continually took time away from his academic pursuits, and deeming a good-looking date every weekend far more important than a good grade in any test, he found little sympathy from his class- mates. A moody sort, with a strong liking for his long hair, Botts faced Service Selection Night with a som- ber face, yet he needn ' t have worried - even hairless. Gotts proved he has what it takes to make it big in the Corps offer groduotion. JAMES MICHAEL GUARNERI Jack come to the bustling town of Annapolis from the quiet tree-lined streets of Brooklyn. With two years of college behind him, he had no trouble with his core courses, but he found his elective courses a challenge worthy of his abilities. Despite his heavy schedule, Jock stands in the top ten percent of his class. Jock s problems during Plebe summer included membership on every sub-squad. Through much effort and o great deal of exercise. Jack has not been on a sub-squod since that summer, and he has been a credit to the in- tramural squash, fieldball, and lacrosse teams. Nucle- ar Power School looms large m Jack s future. With Jack ' s ambition, desire and willingness to work, he should go far in the Navy. Six Hundted Twenty I ' - f N=| Si I il JOHN PETER HARRELL, JR. After spending three naive and carefree years at Ardmore High, the Okie decided to take a bath, put on a pair of shoes and come to USNA to straighten out his hfe. Four years later finds Navy slightly bent. A key man in the International Country Music Conspira- cy, Pete had a freshness that endeared him to all who took the trouble to know him. Although he found the USNA ocodemic deportment somewhat less thon stimuioting, he always maintained a respectable grade average and obtained on oero minor. After- noons found Pete yawl soiling in the spring ond foil and ploying company football in the winter. His best assets ore his creativity and on uncanny talent for in- ductive thinking. They should lead him to success even if he does go info the Navy RICHARD GARLAND HASTINGS, III Richard graduated from Douglas Freeman High School in Richmond, Virginia, where he won honors in aca- demics, personality, and sports. He was not to change at the Academy - He was on the Superintendent s list often, his aptitude was a consistent A, ' and after lettering in Plebe Swimming, he chose to show his talents in tennis and fieldboll. Because of his in- tegrity and personality. Rich was elected to the Bri- gode Honor Board during his first ond second class years. Chich s poor eyesight coused him to gain the title of COMVENDLANT (Commander of Vending Ma- chines Atlantic) during his Plebe year. Anxious to pur- sue further study in his minor field of oceonography Rich plans to go to graduate school ofter a tour in destroyers. He is sure to be one of the rare, well-liked but still forceful, officers in today ' s Navy. GABRIEL HERNANDEZ, JR. Gobe attacked the Noval Academy flying the colors of his many flogs. However, the executive department wos unimpressed. Mr. Sunshine broke all records for good deals and was in top contention for the coveted bronze bonono at graduation Gabe was widely re- nowned for his ability to march, get out of step with himself, and stort his own applouse at the same time. He was o demon for physical fitness and when not sailing or squeezing them off at the rifle range, he worked out doily yawning. Never known as a slash, Gobe nevertheless olwoys seemed to come up with sufficient gravy to keep away from the Green Table. Gobe s ma|or personality troit wos a sheothed sense of humor which, when revealed, could be devostot- ingly sarcastic. Upon graduation, Gobe plans to return to his native Panama, where he will audit courses in Beach dynamics, Latin American biology, and Vintage fluids at the college of non-commitment. iM . lM.1 r r , U . if JAMES EDWARD HOLLOPETER It didn ' t take long for Empty " to get himself known at the Academy, and I ' m sure it will take o while for the Acodemy to forget him. Coming here as a football player, he quickly ended that career by breaking his ankle. Next, it wos on to boxing, where he broke his nose. He even managed to put himself in the hospital ploying o company sport. These accidents hove led him to rely more on indoor sports which he is very good at and seems to en|oy more. One of the top de- merit winners of 68, he earned himself quite o name with the Executive Department. No one is as well known or liked throughout the Brigade as Jim, and the Navy ton do nothing but benefit from his service. CHARLES WILSON KENDALL Hailing from o Novy home in Groton, Connecticut, Chuck come to us with one eye on Navy and one eye on girls. Neither ever caught him. Academically, Chuck hod few peers. He was always willing to help you solve your problems. He also decided early that the way to get through the Academy was to sleep when he could and study the rest of the time. He received honors in both. During Plebe year, Chuck mode o brief oppeoronce on the lightweight crew team. After this intramural sports found him willing ond able. A wel- come oddition to soccer and football, he displayed his enthusiosm and talents on and off the field. Upon graduation, whether it be Pensocola or Groton, the town thot gets him will know it. He ' s one of the Navy s finest at work. Six Hundred Twenty-nine PETER CHARLES KING Feeling o call to the sea, ■ ' Kinger " tore himself away from the girls and surf of Union, New Jersey and headed south to bless Mother Bancroft. He developed himself into one of 70 ' s finer Midshipmen, excelling particularly in battalion footboll, where he started on three Brigade Champions. He succumbed willingly to the " pod monster, " but managed to squeeze in enough time to beat the Academic Board. Pete ' s liking for USNA was only exceeded by his love of a good time. Thus, since he was unaware of the seven-mile limit, he was usually long gone on weekends. Kinger endeared himself to nearly everyone who came in contact with him. His modesty and good humor will always stand him in good stead and his love for the sea surely lustifies his chosen career. MICHAEL PAUL KUNIGONIS It might hove been the sound of Naval Air that lured Mike to the Naval Academy from his native Philadel- phia, but it was also an Aero minor that mode his tenure unsure. Never one to be daunted by the Aca- demic Board, Mike monoged to find ample time to pursue his interests m sports, girls, and an occasional draft, A charter member of the " Zoo, " Mike found his " Wellesley bangs " a source of torment of the Execu- tive Department. His natural ability made him a wel- come addition to the company sports he played, and each season found him with aspirations for a Brigade championship team that never quite materialized. But, Mike s most natural ability will be demonstroted in the future, where his mature judgement and perception assure him of making a capable Naval Avi- ator. THOMAS LYLE MACKENZIE To the Plebe from Baltimore, the thirty miles may |ust have well hove been a thousand. Coming straight from high school, " T. L. " set out to make his mark on the hallowed halls. This he did, competing a formid- able aerospace major and also lettering in varsity heavyweight crew. All work and no play makes Mack dull boy. Therefore, there were the Saturday night excursions while disguised in on " N " sweater. While out on the town, Tom found himself rather leery of fast elevators - Ralph and he always did prefer the stairs! Also, a charter member of the " cove dweller " society, he boasted the only regulation oar in Acade- my history. Truly a fine person and a hard worker, Tom will always be well liked and a success wherever he may go. BRUCE GREGORY KLINE Big Grub arrived from Iowa with his mind set on beating the system. B. G. sped through Plebe year leaving everyone that knew him rolling with laughter and he used Youngster year to put his QPR on a high shelf where it remained for the next two years with- out much attention. Never one to flaunt USNAR, B. G. put the Reg Book to good use as a pad to keep his TV set from scratching the desk top. Greg ' s Spartan ath- letic abilities greatly benefited company soccer, light- weight football, and softboll teams. High comedy and mischief were B. G. ' s bog and he provided the ward- room with many hilarious hours. Graduation finds B. G. with history major and aspirations to open a bait shop and delicatessen in Bull Shoals, Arkansas. Six Hundred Thirty Ijllt idtit JOHN CLYDE MASON Migrating south from Augusta, Maine for a four year vacation, J. C ' entered as a Plebe directly from high school. A tough regular on the company soccer teom, he still managed to find time for the better things in life: sailing, sunshine, and suds. One of the original cove dwellers " and never envious of the greot ge- niuses of our time, he limited his academic endeavors to a safe morgin while completing a minor in me- chanical engineering. Always in love, Mose " disap- peared ot every given opportunity, ond was often re- ported as having been seen in the Towson vicinity. Heading for the surface Navy, John ' s quick smile and pleasing woy, along with his natural talents will moke him a good officer and a fine person. ROBERT JOHN IVIORGENFELD Bob left the cruel metropolis of Hamburg, New York to find soft, easy life at Navy. Because of the many important things cluttering his mind, (stereos, cars, chow, soccer, and an O.A.O.), Morgs never did man- age to satiate his unquenchable academic interest. However, solving the homework was no problem for possible stockholder in Xerox. Morgs vented his oca- demic frustrations on the soccer field. When soccer wasn ' t in season. Bob could more often than not be found in the stomach of the big blue pad monster, lis- tening to his ma|or asset, his stereo, or devising some new way to make it home for a weekend. Bob ' s prov- en worth IS exhibited by his loyalty ond determina- tion which will surely make him o success in his fu- ture years of Navol Service. WILLIAM McNIGHT PARDEE, JR. Coming from a Navy family, it was only natural that Bill enter the Academy. Having little or no trouble in meeting the academic or military requirements, he was quick to distinguish himself as on active and conscientious member of his compony, while at the some time remain in the upper ranks of his doss. Dur- ing the winter months. Bill could be found practicing at the pistol range in an effort to obtain his letter. In the off season, he was adding his talents to the bat- talion water polo teams and soccer teams. If Navy had offered a surfing team. Bill would hove surely been a success. As it turned out, he hod the distinct misfortune of living in Hawaii during his first three yeors at the Academy. His adaptation to the warmer climates seemed to be his only problem while in the winter season The enthusiasm and pride in perform- ance which IS so characteristic of Bill is bound to toke him to great altitudes in Noval Aviation. Six Hundred Thirty-one DAVID WILLIAM RIGGLE The sounds and wheels of the Motor City were not enough to keep Dove from trying his luck in that great metropolis, Annapolis. Not being one to take the easy route, he first enlisted in the " sewer pipe " Navy, however. Dove received his appointment to USNA before winning his dolphins. At the Academy, Dave hod to moke his shore of ad|ustments to the quoint local customs regarding the " Freshmen. " His primary athletic endeavor is fencing on the Plebe and Varsity squads; his other interest include Sigma Pi Sigma and the Scuba Club. Dave also spends much of his time m the pod to, as he puts it, rest his eyes for the flight physical. With such dedication. Dove should moke fine Nova! Aviator. JAMES RAYMOND SCHWENK It was big decision for Jim to choose Canoe U. over the Ivy League. The social life was the crucial factor, and Jim stepped right into Academy living and got his feet wet. For some unknown reason, Jim couldn ' t stay away from the wafer, and that long sought day come OS a segundo when his Hercules Body Beautiful course brought his boat in a winner. Being on outgoing, jo- vial sort, his smile could never be missed, unfortu- nately, neither could his humorous witticism. Howev- er, the smile always grew larger, when the subject turned to either his " Vette " or " his love, his life. " A very sincere person who never hesitated to do a favor for friend, Jim ' s only regret in following his father into the Corps is that they don ' t have a crew team. MARK NYE SHELDON One of the B.M.I.Y., Shel took the 4:40 Club Car to Crobtown to do his thing for USNA. He played Plebe and |ay-vee b-boll, but after that decided to vent his energies toward more satisfying goals such as his girl, leave, Lowenbrau, and academics - in that order. Al- ways the life of the party if there is one or not, Shel provided live entertainment at the many social func- tions he has directed. After a bout with the Academic and Executive Departments Youngster year, our boy come on strong second class year with stars, much to the amazement of all about him. Much respected and admired by all who know him, the ' Bear " will be sure to see that the Navy " will soon note and long remember " the tests he will put it through. ] Six Hundred Thirty-two I I SECOND CLASS LEFT TO RIGHT FROM BACK ROW: Don Brown, Ken Hook, John Brandes, Glenn Bruggemonn, Ross Burkhecd, Paul Loustounou, Tim Poole, Dono Roberts, Don Gunther, Paul Steinke, Don Holey, Mike Hoert, Dove Lee, Jim Metzger, Brent Greene, Bruce Linder, Pete Peterson, John Martin, Mark Gardner, Bill Cocos, John Massie, Pot Mulvony, Jim Brick, Rex Settlemoir, Bob Agnor, Ernie Mor- ris.

He even gave the girls a chance, a new one every month. If the Academy hod offered A. J. " o course in correspondence, Al would have had a sure A, " as his moil box was usually filled. When Al wasn ' t watching T. V., ploying cords, or figuring up his overage, the pad and Mr. Sleep were his friends. Academics never posed a problem that a little cramming wouldn t cure. And, parties were Als specialty except most of the time he couldn t remember what had happened the next day. Although A. J. leans toward Naval Aviation, whatever his choice, he ' ll score. JOSEPH HENRY BUESCHER, JR. Bush " come to the trade school from the world of the Navy Junior. Perhaps he claims Mississippi as home " because, in his pursuit of the fairer sex, he finds Southern gals more agreeable. As Joe traveled through the groves of acodemie ' he tended to stumble in the underbrush and bump into the trees, but somehow, he olways stayed on his feet. He parti- cipated in intramural soccer, fieldboll, and rugby. Contact sports were the oreo of his greatest success with the motto. Hit em hardest. First! ' By his hair- cut, one might suppose Joe to be a Marine type. How- ever, due to his interest in the sea and ships, he has chosen o career in the tin con " Navy. RENE FRANCOIS BUTYN Botes " come from Rockoway, New Jersey, looking forward to his four yeor hitch at USNA. The rigors of Plebe year were met with enthusiasm and hard work. However, as the next two years progressed, Rene ' s gung-ho outlook became blurred by several Novy Good Deols. After his unfortunate encounter with the Plebe Detail second class summer, Butes " be- came more realistic ond settled down to the good life. Although an outstanding soccer player, " Butes " de- cided to put his athletic talents to better use and help his company out in intramural sports. Novy Air will have the distinct honor of having Rene as one of their top-notch pilots.

Finding him in the afternoons isn ' t a problem, OS he lives in the wrestling loft. Smiling, he soys he would rather wrestle a body than a book ' Although an outstanding strategist on the mats, academics turned out a bit more difficult than high school. How- ever, not one to accept defeat by a course (or a fe- male), he ' s always managed to come up with the big grade to pull himself out of the fire. After a big save, Chris would be one of the first to celebrate, a field where he never forgot a number or curve. Service selection posed a problem, but being less air- sick than seasick. Navy Air got the nod. REED OWEN CLARK Reed Clark, hailing from the beautiful city by the bay, Oakland, California, can well be remembered lor his athletic prowess coupled with the incandescent knowledge of experience, " which seemed to shine through during many a dork moment while at Navy. Never one to sit idly by, " Reedo " could be seen doing |ust about anything and everything, although he openly preferred oceanography and track. If he wasn ' t running or studying, he could be found either soaking artificial sunroys in late May (to catch up on summer) or reading through the latest Playboy ver- sion of contemporary life, which, as we all know, makes for a better all-around person. California will always be called home " by Reed - the sun, the slopes, and especially the people.

CRAIG RICHARD DAMPIER Damps, " Navy Junior, treked to Navy from that far distant metropolis of McLean, Virginia. He was distin- guished during Plebe year as The Phantom Plebe due to a 100 day stmt in the hospital, where he ac- quired a zipper on his knee and a taste of the soft life. Craig took both academics and athletics in his stride with moderate success. A chem ma|or, he was famous for his lob technique and his unorthodox problem solving methods. In the 28th Company, Craig was known as the source of all gouge, and for his ability to fix anything. His career plans include the " Grey- hounds of the Fleet " and the free and easy life of a bachelor, " Damps " should make a great admiral someday. km W 1 y ' i . - -««r-raB.- |H J ■ Six Hundred Thirty-si) PAUL OWEN DUNN Paul traveled to Navy Tech straight from high school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he accumulated on impressive varsity sports record with three track, one crosscountry, and one soccer letter to his credit. Seeing how this accomplishment would help his peoce-of-mind Plebe year, he sweated out three sets on track T-tobles to earn some well-deserved slack. Dunner ' olways had an enthusiastic attitude toward the Naval Service exemplified by his outstanding uni- forms and his desire to stoy within the Walls on Sot- urdoy nights. An easygoing character, he foiled Plebes and classmates alike by o profound knowledge of tri- via and on ability to keep his hoir longer than two inches.

" He came to the Academy with eighteen years of beach parties and Budweiser beer cans stuffed in the back pocket of his Catolino boggies. Once here, his great pep and competitive spirit led him to the trock. His enthusiasm was not limited to athletics, but carried over to his other activities and to those who met him. He has set the trend for an active, successful life, and he will surely continue in the same style.

Being deeply interested in current events and blessed with the gift of blorney, his pursuits include o ma|or in Foreign Affoirs. Never one to miss o party or let his social life suffer, he has been known to rustle up a car and blitz Baltimore on Saturday nights or catch a hop for a quick weekend on the gulf coost. On the whole, he proved a nimble- tongued, quick-witted friend to all. Being on Air Force Brot, he hopes to enter Pilot Training soon after grod- uotion where sure success owoits him PAUL EDWIN FITZGIBBONS Fitz, the old salt of the Twenty-eighth Compony, made it to USNA the hard way. Tired of scooping ice cream in Lynn, Massachusetts, he |oined the Navy to see the world, winding up at the Academy via NAPS. Believing strongly in the philosophy that anything over a 2.0 is lock of sleep, he often could be seen pull- ing on all-nighter. The few nights he did stoy up, he would curl up with a good book while consuming an ostronomical number of cokes, cigarettes, and cups of coffee. Edwin Muskes uncanny ability to ploy the gui- tar with either hand wos o tolent he lealously guard- ed and would only perform for private audiences. Fitz will no doubt be on asset to Naval Aviation, for ot least five years anyhow. LAWRENCE PAUL HEARN It s c bird - It s a lark! ... Oh no, that s Heorn on his flute again! " From the paradise hills of Cormel Valley, L. P. mode his Acodemy debute with all the fonfore a Plebe dreads most. His initials plagued him the nickname Long Ploy Heorn, " but far more than o love for music, his good nature ond high motivation won him the friendships and respect of oil. Gymnos- tics and sailing proved high points among oil too many interests - gold mining in Alaska, summer scuba dives, Hawaii or bust! When will they ever give us enough leave ' ! His high school love for literature gave way to the woes of o physics ma|or. Never at a loss for a drag, L. P. well knew the " finer sides " of Academy life as well. Whatever future Navy offers, Lorry con look forward to the finest. THOMAS GEORGE HERBERT Herbie come to Navy straight out of high school with a lacrosse stick in bond. Setting his goals high, he was always seen doing something worthwhile. His inter- ests in many oreos led him to become very familiar with the city of Annapolis. His horcJworking ways en- abled him to win his varsity letter on one of the no- tion ' s best lacrosse teams os a sophomore, while earning his fair shore of good grodes. A friendly and outgoing personality eorned him the respect of those that knew him. Upon graduation, Herbie hopes to fly. We all agree that his determination ond hord work will moke him one of the Navy ' s best pilots. Six Hundred Itiirty-sevcn GUY STUART HUTCHISON It ' s hard to know where to start for praise, but here goes a try. Tau Kappa Epsilon was too much for him: a year at Missouri, booze, girls . . . but, Navy was Hutch ' s real love - Plebe year, all the good things in Bancroft, and Varsity Soccer!! Summer Scuba dives, Hawaii or bust, and not enough leave was his com- plaint too. But academics were Hutch ' s great solace. He burnt the candle out at both ends. We can ' t leave out his home town either. Missouri hasn ' t a finer place to boast. He took his roommate home one sum- mer to St. Joe and tried to teach him to waterski. On- ward and upward. Hutch looks to the clouds for a ca- reer. Airdales ore happiest as bachelors, and Hutch has many happy days to look ahead to . . . Well, as long OS his wife lets him. Really, he ' s a pretty out- standing Middie. TIMOTHY JOHN JOYCE A native of Freeport, Illinois, Tim (Boomer) came to the antiseptic gray pile with a quest for athletic as well as academic heights. An easy going guy, Tim would always lend a shoulder to lean on or an ear to talk to. Never content with the passive challenge of Bancroft Hall, Tim could be found on the field, either competing in the shot put or rooting other trackmen through their paces. Tim ' s leisure time was usually spent expanding his cultural side with a good book or a gome of chess. The remaining time was utilized trying to break the Academy record for " Most Z Time Accumulated By a Two-Man Room In Four Years. " Truly a natural " for future leadership, one can be assured that Tim will make his million in either the sea, air, or the business world. JAMES FRANCIS KENNEY After eighteen years of rough-riding with the herd in Diamond Bar, California, Buddha " decided to soy farewell to the ranch for a more challenging and treacherous life at sea . . . and so it has been said, the great " Buddha of 2.0 " come into being. Sacrific- ing a spot in the Navy football line-up, Jim proved himself in the field of academics. A slide rule in one hand, a cup of coffee in the other, a cigar between his sun-dried California lips sat this ' mild tempered " cowhand behind the helm of four years of academic strife. Jim ' s affinity for the " Corps " and the " Line " were broken by a more than wise decision for Naval Air. A man of wine, women and song, Jim was a friend to all. This friendly nature will undoubtedly be an asset to Jim throughout his career. Six Hundred Thirty-eight 5 rA. -.-, " «i FREDERICK HEARD NEEL Fred come to the shores of the Severn directly from high school in Thomosville, Georgia. Although he quickly ad|usted to Maryland ' s beautiful weather, he never missed a chance to boost the Peach State. ' With the quiet, easy going calmness of a true South- ern Gentleman, " Fred seldom let anything upset him. A true concern for others made him a valued and de- pendable friend. Fred ' s academic interests lay in the field of Foreign Affairs. His easy going Southern charm and quick wit won him the heart of more than one member of the fairer sex. Pointing his sights to Pensocolo after graduation, Fred plans to |om the ranks of Novo! Aviation. With his ability and person- ality, Fred will surely be a welcome addition to the oviators of the United States Navy. ROBERT MINTON NOONAN Bob come to the Academy from Barbourville, Ken- tucky, vio Bullis Prep, bringing with him a unique per- sonality of fun ond compatibility. Bob ' s interests in- clude basketball, golf, and a voriety of other sports. His experience at Bullis gave him a head start over many of his classmates in the area of military disci- pline, and most important, a confident outlook on life. Noons, os he has come to be known, has a woy to be where its at, ond if not, he soon finds if. A very promising coreer looks imminent to Bob in 1970. M- ' f --« v 1 JOHN FRANKLIN RANTSCHIER Coasting down the snow covered slopes of Colorado through the Naval Academy came Ranch, ' there put- ting to use the skills he learned on the slopes to get moximum glide with minimum effort. This was evi- denced by his getting twelve hours sleep out of every twenty-four while getting a ma|or in math and Su- perintendent ' s List rating. John wos loved and ad- mired by all his classmates as o give o ship ' Mid with ready smile and on irrepressible sense of humor. His chief sources for deriving pleasure were drinking and sex, indiscriminate and opposite respec- tively. He is generously endowed with common sense and quick wit which will prove invaluable to him as on up-and-coming pilot in the Fleet of the future. JOHN BORDEN SCHWAB John, or Moose " as he is still called, came to the Academy from Piquo, Ohio. During Plebe summer, his uncanny ability to break things (punching bags, rifles, and occasionally an Academy Reg.), plus his forward manner soon earned him his nickname. Few will for- get his loud, |Ovial laughter echoing through the halls. It was John ' s great ambition which enabled him to succeed and survive those many times when he hod to moke do on only twelve hours of sleep a day. Never one to sweat the ocodemic department, his QPR as- founded those who knew how effortlessly he achieved it His great wit, sense of humor, and easy going manner won him many friends while here. These qualities plus his many noturol abilities will in- sure him the success he deserves. PAUL FRANCIS SULLIVAN Every company has to have it s intellectual and Sul was ours. You might say he was the oasis in a vosf wasteland. In the post three years, Sul has managed to keep his stars " and Superintendent ' s List rating almost every semester. Journeying to the Academy from the sheltered hamlet of Wellesley, Massachu- setts, Sul soon became indoctrinated in the ways of the Navy, despite the gallant efforts of his room- mates to set him straight. An outstanding eager and trackman at Wellesley High, Sul brought his athletic ability with him to the Academy as witnessed by his exceptional play on the company b-boll team. With this keen spirit of competition, and his univac intel- lect, I ' m sure Sul will be o valuable addition to the seagoing scientists in the Submarine Service Six Hundred Ihirty-nine i JON DENNIS TERRY J. D. entered the Academy after a year at a California Junior College only to continue his already established study habits. He has seen the insides of only a select few textbooks in his career at Navy. His record with the Math Department was a perfect 1000 - having failed every math final he ever took. The " Red- Headed Wonder " was an avid member of the soccer, fieldboll, and rugby squads, even though living up to his reputation as the Club-Foot, " Diversity was the keynote for Jon ' s stay at the Country Club, as is dem- onstrated by his plans to aviate for the " Corps " after completing his oceanography minor. RICHARD HOWARD THOMAS Rich came straight from North High School in Skokie, Illinois, with well defined goals and high ambitions. Always putting his time to good use, his most worth- while hours were spent outside the academy ' s hal- lowed halls. In addition to the pursuit of good times. Rich knew the meaning of hard work. Despite being held back by numerous in|uries, the varsity wrestling team reaped the benefits of his determination and hard work. Academically, Rich pulled his share of good grades while mastering the magical mysteries of the Electrical Science Department. Bad eyes deprive Navy Air of his services, but no matter what area Rich chooses, he ' s sure to give the Navy a good show. STANLEY BYRON WEEKS Having lived an exciting life as a Navy Junior, bton has decided to remain with the Navy for a while. He did, however, allow himself a year of pleasant free- dom at the University of Florida before coming to USNA. Since his arrival in the Free State of Maryland, he has endeavored to moke the academic world his bag. His grade point overage certainly has shown this, because he never foiled to keep his stars. His interests outside the academic world hove been many while his ma|or interest is in the field of international affairs. The " pledges " soon learned who they could come to for answers to professional questions of a political or international nature. After graduation, Stan is plan- ning to |oin the proud team of Navy flyers. LEON JOHN ZIELINSKI Lee came to the Academy in the summer of ' 66 after spending a year and a half in the fleet . " Zee " who hails from North East Philadelphia was a great help to his classmates during Plebe year, drawing from his boundless knowledge of Navy life to aid them in an- swering difficult " Pro-questions. " Having met his true love, Lee changed from the dull, boring boy he was Plebe year into the well-rounded man he is today. Easy going, Lee was never to be seen around the halls on weekends, for when he was not in a drag house with his intended, he would be visiting her at Muhlen- berg College. His interest in sports centered around his mile run, which he would start training for in ear- nest in September. Although Lee has thought about NFO, he is positive his choice will be Navy Line. But whatever service he picks, it will get his complete attention and efforts.

Never one to pass up a joke or a pronlc, he usuolly managed to keep his friends laughing. Yet, as a Naval Engineering ma|or, he v os always the man on the Deans and Superintendent ' s Lists whenever the grades came out. He en|oyed participating in fieldball ond the other company intromuro! sports. Bob also managed to put in four years os the doss honor rep- resentotive. With plans for possible graduate work in the near future, his planned speciolty seems to be a career in the Nuclear Submarine Navy. Whatever his service choice. Bob will surely be a successful ond competent addition to any wardroom. JERRY P. BURGER Jerry was Doytono ' s contribution to Chesopeake U. in the summer of ' 66. He spent a couple of weeks of Plebe summer getting cut from the baseball team. This was the end of all attempts at intercollegiate athletics. He thereafter devoted his free time to in- tromurols and the drum and bugle corps. Beginning second class year, fi nding him on weekends was on easy matter. He was a practicing member of the var- sity wardroom squad. He spent many hours compar- ing and contrasting low grade horror movies seen on ' Chiller " As for his professional interests, Jerry is planning to go into Aviation and hopes to moke a successful career of it. DANIEL JAMES CALLAHAN Straight from high school, Don came to Navy with o Never Soy Die " attitude that saw him through a rough Plebe year ond through competition in any sport at Navy. Being plagued by three semesters of wires. It was a struggle for Don to keep over the 2.0 passing overage. One for scoping out the whole situo- tion, it won ' t be until service selection night thot Don will announce his line of duty. If athletic ability and Jungle Warfare School are any indication of his plans, the Navy will be getting a potential UDT officer or a Marine Corps Recon Second Lt. No motter what his line of duty after groduotion, Don ' s silent determino- tion and quick praise for a job well done will always present him as o worthy leader. Six Hundred Forly-lhree JOHN PATRICK CRISP The trip to USNA on June 29, 1966, posed little prob- lems for John as he hails from Fredericksburg, Virgin- ia. Ferret, as he was known by his friends, will always be remembered for his moves on the 150 pound grid- iron. However, his best move was from an Aerospace Engineering to a Math minor. Football could not com- pletely dominate the interests of " the ferret. " On his weekends, John was loyal to his loved ones and often took time to visit Uncle Rip. Always a party goer, John was a lover of the finer things in life, namely a good time and pretty girls, which usually went hand in hand with John. Taking a cue from D. Q., John would like to be a dentist, but will probably go Navy Air. CURTIS B. CUNNINGHAM Curt hails from Warren, Ohio, and came to the Naval Academy via NAPS. Called " Butch " by his relatives and " Baby Huey " by his friends. Curt could usually be found checking his room for light leoks in his never ending battle with the pad monster. Curt soon es- tablished himself as the bulwark on the company basketball team and in keeping with the athletic stat- ure of all athletes, soon became the dream lover of USNA " in the eyes of stewardi from Eastern to United Airlines. Always the life of the party, he will best be remembered for his ability to make friends and en|oy a good time. This should stand him in good stead in his career as he intends to fly upon graduation. MARC ANTHONY DZIKOWSKI Since coming to the Academy from Befhesda, Mary- land, Marc ' s interests have led him to pursue an edu- cation and future in Oceanography, while his tal- ents have inspired him to such endeavors os writing, directing, and acting with the Mosqueraders in all of his four years at the Academy. Being not the most athleticolly inclined. Marc found his way into every ploy produced while maintaining an above-overage interest in his Oceanography major, in which he hopes to attain on Immediate Masters. fJis time was further divided by the other six ECAs to which he belonged, ranging from the Catholic Choir to the Scuba Club. Marc ' s enthusiasm and desire to do and experience all that life has to offer will surely contribute to a suc- cessful career in the Naval Service and in Oceonogro- phy. i(Ot,W Mllld( flnw lilt ltd I will all jidit ta,iif jwlliif mipi UUI Wlifl fcwffll nifrie Six Hundred Forty four ' w t t- .»t ■H- WILLIAM RALPH EASON, JR. There is some reason to believe that Bill had to be prodded into coming to the Academy from UGA. How- ever, Bill come steaming in with a footprint on his seat, vowed and determined thot one day his cheeks would also be rosy. Bill did excel in the professional areno, and received on award second class year for his shiny shoes and a marksmanship trophy in knife throwing. Academics weren ' t necessarily Bill ' s bog, and sometimes they seemed to get him down a little. After Bill discovered that it was much easier to go through the gate than over the wall, however, life at the Academy seemed to agree a little more with him. I will always remember Bill as a great roommate, a great guy, ond hopefully a great flier. THOMAS JOHN FLAHERTY Tom, affectionately known as Snowflake, " Fat- man, " or whatever by his friends, hails from Greensburg, Pennsylvonia. After spending a year ot Bullis Prep, where he was known for his football prowess, Tom came to the Naval Academy to moke a name for himself. However, he soon found a name was not to be hod from the Aerospace Engineering Department. To offset his lack of love of Aero, Tom channeled his energies into those things he loved best: good times, pretty girls, sleeping, football, and box- ing - and not necessarily in that order. As the origi- nal Soulmon, ' one could always hear the sounds of soul music coming from his room, or as he and his roomy preferred to call it. Super Soul City. After graduation, Tom has plans for Naval Aviation or if by some turn of fate, the Medical Profession. R. FRANK GUNKELMAN frank come to USNA from Forgo, North Dakota, al- ready famous for his swimming ability. The fastest backstroker in the history of his state, Frank spent most of his time of the Academy as a pool rat break- ing records. During Plebe year, Frank accumulated enough carry-on to lost him his four years here ond no one knew how to use it better than he. Frank wos king of the supine position. If he wasn t on his back in the water, he was on it in his always mode pod From there he viewed the world in an always optimistic and friendly foshion. Frank ' s crop dusting experience should point to Navy Air come selection night. His friendly nature and leadership qualities will insure him success in his field of endeavor. CHARLES EARLE HAVLIK The Southern Gentleman hails from Saint Simons Island, deep in the heart of Georgia. Charles is his given name, but all who know him coll him Lik " or Babo " Babo soon established himself as a perma- nent member on Superintendent ' s List with a minor in math. His ocademic excellence did not allow him to lose hold of his fun-loving noture. Always o fixture ot party, he is known for his trips to Ocean City and his failure with one of the fairer sex. Because of his nauseating experiences on youngster cruise and at Pensocola, his motto, Novy land is mighty grand, " will long be remembered Upon graduation, the branch of service he selects will be o lucky one. PAUL LEO HOUDE Poul come to the Naval Academy from Minnesota, which he affectionately referred to as God s Country, for his four yeors here After making the Superintend- ent ' s List Plebe year, Paul settled down to the more aesthetic pursuits at Navy. During the week he could usuolly be found studying in a pinochle gome. The weekends seldom found Paul sitting around the hall. When not dragging o girl from either Philadelphia or DC, he could be found out looking for one closer to home. However, even girls could not take him owoy from the Tube on Sunday afternoon when a hockey game was on. Upon graduation, Paul plans to follow the example of his Plebe year hero. Grub Brown " and go Navy Air for life, unless he gets off for good behavior. MARC MARTELL KEEPER From the northern province of Neenoh, Wisconsin, and the son of a Navy man. More first stepped onto the road toward a Navol career in the summer of 66. Continuing his high standards ' that he estoblished in high school. More soon was on his way to many new friendships and academic proficiency. SURE! His first two years proved to be rather dry, " with the start of second doss year, the wife " and the Silver flosh " made the scene; with this combination of woman " and wheels, " More hod many action- filled " weekends in DC, visiting Uncle Albert. Upon groduotion. Marc is taking the vows of holy motri- mony along with his tour of duty ot Pensocola. I m sure his coreer as a Navol Aviator will be o great one as long as the barf-bags hold out. Six Hundred forly-five EDWARD CAMPFIELD LIGON, IV Ed arrived from NAPS eager to develop the wealth of pro knowledge he hod gained in the fleet and the Navy spirit he carried with him. Recognition of his abilities came early in Plebe summer for Ed as a spir- ited chorge through the reflection pool left b lood dripping from his flashing bayonet and instant fame throughout the brigade. The Cloud " ' became a standout on the company lightweight football team, but still found time to earn his letter on the Comman- dants " All-Star " team. It was at this time that he de- veloped close relationship with the most fomous of 6th Batt. Its. Drawn together by their mutual inter- ests, they kept in close contact on Youngster cruise, where Ed delighted the good Lt. with his midnight smokers. With such on illustrious background, Ed seems o natural for his grad choice of Navy Air. WARREN JOHN MACKENSEN A veteran skier hailing from the Green Mountain State, Warren came to us from Assumption Prep School in Worcester, Massachusetts. Upon arriving at the Academy, " Mack " capitalized on the validation program and pursued an Electrical Engineering ma|or and a Systems Engineering minor. He saw Superin- tendent ' s List Youngster year, and his interest in elec- tronics was further evidenced by his tenure as Chief Engineer of WRNV. Warren won his Block " N " after spring leave Plebe year, and his astute professionol- ism and love for the Navy soon became apparent; many a Plebe will recall their " topic of the week " as a result of the ensuing professional questions asked of them. Warren plans to prove his professional com- petence in the blockshoe Navy, where his desire to serve will always prove him in good stead. HUGH DuBOSE MAULDIN, JR. Hugh comes-to us from " rebel country, " " where he graduated from Berry High School in Birmingham, Alabama. As a Plebe, he was nicknamed " Rock " and has been called that ever since. An easygoing guy, Hugh can usually be found doing most anything ex- cept studying. For all his reading, he always seems to keep plenty of ocademic gravy. A true liberty lover, Rock " s main interest is the fairer sex, somehow, he con always come up with a young lovely for a week- end. With yearning for the " greyhound Navy, ' " Hugh has constant interest in the professional aspects of a Naval Career. Six Hundred Forty-six STUART EDWIN McFARLAND The great city of Whittier, California, sent its pride to the Naval Academy m Stu. Stu was quick to establish himself as one of Navy ' s top athletes. Plebe year found him hard at work both in the squash courts and on the tennis courts. Youngster year he turned his ef- forts solely to squash ond established himself as a permonent member on the team. Aport from Navy, Stu hos made a name for himself in the City of Brotherly Love, where he has endeared himself in the hearts of ot least two girls ond on equal number of psychiatrists. Upon groduation, Stu would like to go Civilian Air, but whichever service gets him, he will be a welcome to it. KENNETH LEROY O ' BANNON When Ken come to the Naval Academy, it took only a thirty minute drive from nearby Hyattsville, Mary- land. Ken did not excel in academics, but with a minor in weapons, he was a constant source of infor- mation regarding wires. Ken will probobly best be remembered as the bulwark of the company light- weight football team, and endeared to his classmates when it was discovered that his family had a cottage within the seven mile limit. Many o June Week party owes its existence to OB. ' During his four years at Navy, the cute little redhead broke the hearts of the foirer sex, often traveling holfwoy ocross the country to do it. Upon graduation. Ken will fly and the Novy will receive an excellent officer. JOHN C. PLUNKEH Although John was born in Philadelphia, he colls the thriving metropolis of Largo, Florida, his home. Grad- uating second in his class at Dixie Hollins High School, John continued his academic achievements at the Academy. Overcoming a major in Novol Engineering and several encounters with the Bull Department, he has managed to make a regular appearance on the Dean s List. After a series of adventures and misod- ventures with the Navy computers, he was olso awarded the nickname FORTRAN. As an active member of the Scuba Club, John has pursued his in- terest in skindiving while devoting nearly os much time to his second pastime, sleeping. An avid partici- pation in the Y.P. Squodron suggests that John can look forward to a dedicated coreer in the surface Navy. JAMES LAWTON SMEE First coming to Anhopolis from Tehran, Jim, o defec- tor from on Army family, occasionally colled Fort Lup- ton, Colorado, Fort Monroe, Virginia, or San Froncisco, home. After spending Plebe yeor as an intromurol |0ck, he renounced the dusty fields for the musty cor- ner of Moury Hall that houses the debate team, where he became a member of the first string. As the result of his debating feots, Jim managed to ovoid the Naval Academy on weekends, but still managed to remoin high in the doss. Although his workouts were primar- ily composed of carrying oround two bags of file cards, while leoving the more difficult evidence carry- ing to his nefarious forensic colleague, the Dwarf, Jim managed to try soiling and squash os well. His mili- tary and academic prowess, tied with a truly genuine interest in others, will moke him a fine officer. DALE E. STAHL Dale come to the Acodemy from Coon Rapids, Minne- sota. Upon Arriving, Dale soon established himself as on outstanding performer in oil areas of Academy life. His meticulous persevering nature tied together with his careful planning mode it inevitoble thot Dole would rise to the top in oil areas of endeavor. A Me- chanical Engineering major couldn ' t keep Dole from becoming a name on the Superintendent ' s List every semester. The Executive Department gove him three stripes ond the wrestling loft gave him a list for counting calories and recognition os one of the top 130-37 pound wrestlers in the nation. Dales tremen- dous stature, deep booming voice, his lack of ego and idiosyncrocies, along with his unsorcastic noture will long be fondly remembered by all who knew him. RONALD ANTHONY STRIBLING Hailing from Stockbridge, Georgia, where he wos al- ready renowned for a military career at Georgia Mili- tary Academy, Ron easily estoblished himself as one of the happy-go-lucky members of the 29th. Known for the ease with which he stayed on the Superintend- ent ' s List, he wos seldom seen with his nose in the books until the night before. He conducted his experi- ments with wolls, cars, and opponents trying to flood his position OS monster ' on the company light- weight football teom. Ron s other athletic accom- plishments include much experience os outfielder on the softboll team os well as o swart on the volleyball team. Always one for odvenfure, Stribs could fre- quently be found on the Circle or in the compony of attractive women. During his occasional compulsory stays in the Hall, Ron was well renowned for his wakeless weekends and shell-shocked Plebes who dared engage him in trivia at the tables. The epitome of Mid ' s Mid, Ron will keep his reody room active. LOWELL FINLEY VAN WAGENEN Lowell Finley Von Wogenen, better known to every- one OS Van, come to the Naval Academy from Sepul- vedo, California, vio the Marine Corps and NAPS. Al- though Aerospace Engineering tried its best. Van was able to overcome the academic obstacles to his grad- uation. He will probably be remembered by his class- mates for his achievements in other than academic areas and those sanctioned by USNA. Plebe and Youngster years found Van on the mighty Severn ex- celling for the crew team, however a pulled muscle and something else turned his attention away from the water and the oar. Undaunted by those who went before him, he has never lost sight of his goal. He will return to the Marine Corps upon graduation and fly. LYNN H. WIDENER Lynn come to the Novo! Academy billing himself as Chottonoogo ' s Pride. " Whole, " as he was uffection- afely known to his friends, adequately made the tran- sition from the moonshine hills of Tennessee to the bourbon metropolis of the Eastern shore, Lynn will probably be best remembered for his participation on the Brigade Championship battalion football teams. Although it fried exceptionally hard in Lynn ' s case, the Aero Department failed to keep him below the re- quired 2.00. The weekend usually found Lynn at a party either in or out of the seven mile limit, where he was always in the center of the drinks and girls. Always known for his forward approach with ladies, Lynn will undoubtedly use the some procedure which has worked so well for him as he qoes Navy Air. LEONARD ARNOLD WIENS Len come to the Naval Academy from the thriving metropolis of Reedley, California via NAPS and soon became known as the dirty old man of the sea. In spite of gunning bottle with the pod monster and the English language, Len managed to excel in the academic area. With a major in oceonography, Len monqged to find time to pursue the finer arts of wine and women on the weekend. He will probably be best remembered for his sprints to formation on Saturday nights. Upon graduation, Len hopes to go for a mas- ters. After getting his degree, based on his experience before NAPS, Len hopes to return to the high seas on his favorite ship, a destroyer, and the Navy will get on outstanding officer.

" Now claiming Washington, D. C. as his home, " CEBS " con be frequently seen on nu- merous side trips to Woodbridge, Virginia, where he cultivates the ma|ority of his extra-curricular activi- ties. With Charlie ' s eyes set on a career of Navy Line, he studied Naval Architecture. Never known as a great academic wizard, Charlie took each yeor with o great attitude, and a different sense of humor. Many people came to know Charlie by his unusual antics around the hall. We ore all sure that upon his gradua- tion from the Naval Academy, CEBS " will continue his perfected habits in the fleet for a long, hard ca- reer. i Hundred Forty-eight I?fe2? - SECOND CLASS LEFT TO RIGHT FROM BACK ROW: P.

Six Hundred Fitty 10 ROGER CLINTON ADAMS Clint, A Novy Junior, came to the Naval Acodemy fol- lowing a year at the University of the South. His first two years found him in constant engagement with the books, but early in his second class year, while resting from academic battle fatigue, he mode his reputation as the fastest pin in the West, " smashing all existing speed records in one short, but deadly weekend. A strong desire to succeed and intense mo- tivation guided Clint through many academic bottles which might have stopped most of us, but his never say die " dedication and olmost unbelievable persever- ance hove brought him academic triumph and mode him countable addition to every company pro|ect. Clint will undoubtedly be a most welcome addition to the Navy, be it submorines or Surface Line. THOMAS JOSEPH BENDER, JR. The Academy gained a model midshipman when Tom turned down a second year at NAPS for a free ride with the varsity. Hailing from Philly, Tom learned early the finer aspects of life. A mug of brew, a Mo- town sound, and a pretty girl ore trodemarks of Toms leave. Although a knee injury prevented Tom from achieving a letter in football, he was nonethe- less among the ail-Americans on the conduct team. Not being one to let academics interfere with his so- cial graces, Tom still has been a frequent member of the Superintendent ' s List, while achieving a ma|or in Systems Engineering. As sure as Tom will provide the Navy with on outstanding pilot, his vigorous outlook on life will provide for his future colleagues the laughs and excitement which he brought to his friends at the Acodemy. DANIEL DAVID BOGDEWIC Forsaking fame and riches, Dan burst upon the USNA scene ot the request of Congress and Country. It took him several weeks to realize that he was not in charge here. This shock has remained through the years. Becoming disenchanted with academics. Bodge " decided to bring the matter to the attention of the Academic Board. His advice wos heeded, and the Admiral informed Don the door was always open. His slicing wit and masterful one-upmanship made Don a major force here. The world wont remember what we did here, but we will alwoys recall what Don said here. Bodge " refuses to let an Aviation heritoge cramp his style, for he thinks Line " is fine. The fleets wardrooms ore sure to welcome him. ALLEN RAY BOUTZ Coming to Canoe U. by way of Del Norte High School in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Boots almost decided to call If quits when he discovered that he was only al- lowed time to dust out his room once a day. But in keeping with his family froditfon, which has grodu- oted brothers from both West Point and the Air Force Academy, he stayed on, and quickly established him- self as a force to be reckoned with, when he come out for a song fest the first night of Plebe summer with his roommote s pajomos on. After scores of stories about his conquests of mony beoutiful women, Allen admits to his Woterloo with a cerfoin J. J. We wish Al a lot of luck at the altar and in the fleet. Six Hundred Fifty-one DANIEL RICHARDS BOWLER Bowles " is an all-around outstanding guy. He is an outstanding athlete, having been No. I goalie on the soccer team since the first game ot Youngster year. Don IS also a scholar having continually been on the Superintendents List. Few people, however, have heard all the tales of his sometimes costly and always fruitless exploits with the opposite sex, despite his having oil the qualities that normally sweep girls off their feet. He brushes off his failures with a witty charm that borders on pure, unabashed egotism. Bowles came to the Academy from Annapolis High with a year spent in between at Phillips Academy of Andover, Massachusetts. Upon graduation, Bowles will follow his dad. The Cdr. " , 45, and his brother, Tom, ' 67, into an outstanding career. MELVIN HUGH BROWN Hugh arrived at Annapolis fresh from the hills of southern Virginia with a will to win and a desire to excel in all that he did. Despite his somewhat dubious choice of a math minor, Huey always did well in the never ending bottle with the academic world. Al- though he never made the Big Blue, Hugh managed to ploy for three consecutive years on the Brigade Cham- pions in bott football. In addition to football, the company basketball and fast-pitch teams were never without the winning presence of Brownie. Every weekend was spent with o young lovely from some- times for, distant places, and Hugh ' s ability to find fun and someplace to dance, liberty limits notwith- standing, always surrounded him with followers. Novy Air will find a ready participant in Hugh. LOUIS EUGENE BUCK, JR. Austin, Texas sent USNA this fun-loving, hard-headed character with a natural magnetism for trouble. Louie immediately set out to become a legend in his own time, and at this writing, Lou, with his magnificent statements " bos tolked himself out of 5 class A ' s. A natural athlete, Louis has given his ability to many of the Academy teams. While often having difficulty with the academic world, Lou found his glory in the EH G Department, which seemed to appreciate his greatness with the written word. Lou suffered his ini- tial disappointment when he found the Academy wasn ' t four year bridge tournament but, graduation won t find disappointment for anyone, neither Nancy nor the Navy. Lou will undoubtedly be one of the fin- est to ever occupy the cockpit of a Navy plane. LONNIE DAVID BUTLER It took an appointment to the Academy to get Butts ' this for north, but once he established him- self, he lent the traditional southern charm to every- thing he touched. Coming from the tiny town of Oak Grove, Louisiono, with o stopover at Louisiana Tech, Butts brought with him an unquenchable thirst for women. This southern gentleman soon proved to be irresistible to more than a mere handful of lasses. Academics were no problem to Dove, o moth ma|or, who never managed to escape the Superintendent ' s List or the Dean s List, both at the same time. If was rare night indeed when Butts was not in bed by midnight. The Navy con only be enriched when Butts dons the officer ' s garb for his career in the service. RICHARD LEE FARLEY When he isn ' t restricting for one of his extra- curricular forays. Rick con be found on the beach surf- ing. Rick ' s adventures, on and off the board, hove kept his classmates amazed. Once, three days passed before the company officer discovered that Rick wasn ' t really a sheep dog. Rick is the only man in the Brigade who con hove two-inch hoir that comes below his chin. After graduation, Rick hopes to put his many talents to good use. His interest in oceanogra- phy, love of the sea, and desire to go (UGHI) Line ought to stand him in good stead. What he ' ll be like in the fleet, no one can say for sure, but the fleet con be certain that after the Golden Bod " arrives, there II never be a dull moment, GEORGE FELGATE From the thriving metropolis of Winsted, Connecticut, Wiry George ' came charging forth, ready to tackle any obstacle in his path. After many hours of studying and successfully laying rum to the Moth Department, George was ready to move on to bigger and better things. His talent in the musical field put him into the front ronks of the Drum and Bugle Corps. He will long be remembered for his outstanding swimming ability, which he cleverly disguised on his 400 yord and 40 minute swimming test. Despite the fact that he was the only midshipman to bailout of his T-34 twice while at Pensocolo, George hopes to make Navy Air his service selection. With his friendly personality and go get em " attitude, George is sure to be well re- ceived in any commond. Six Hundred Fifly-lwo STANLEY DOUGLAS GUERTIN Doug come to the naval Academy with o happy care- free non-sweot attitude and he leaves us in the some manner. One of a select few Plebes who managed to sleep through morning come-orounds, he quickly picked up the nickname Zero " when the Brigade re- turned, and he leaves, still the some old Zero. " Doug was very interested in extra-curricular activities, from field trips to Washington D.C. as o Plebe, to head of the first class car committee. An avid cor enthusiast, Doug con always be seen sitting behind the wheel of his Corvette. Alwoys ready and looking for a good time, Doug seemed to be just one |ump ahead of the Executive Deportment. He is undecided about his fu- ture, but marriage is definitely ruled out. His ability to get along easily with others will carry him a long way. EDWARD MICHAEL GUMKOWSKI Ed came to the Naval Academy from Stamford, Con- necticut, via Columbio Prep School. He encountered rough seas during Plebe year and has waged a con- tinuous battle for academic grodes, which consumes the ma|ority of his time. However, he has still found time to participate on the varsity indoor and outdoor track teams os o long jumper. His ability in the man- agement field shows not only in the classroom but also in the extrocurriculor activities of the Monoge- ment Forum. He helped evaluate the comments of the third estate concerning Youngster Cruise which led to a new program for the cruise just this past year. He also hopes to do some postgraduate work in Manage- ment. Ed ' s sincerity and realistic outlook should serve him in good stead throughout his Naval career. CHRISTOPHER WILSON HOLLOWELL, VI Wil wandered into USNA from Savannah, Georgia, and fell into thot cult that wonts to exchange their Navy blue for .Marine green at graduation. His out- ward appearance of total relaxation gives little hint of his determination and drive toward his military coreer. This determination is well evidenced by his winning silver |ump wings ond only slightly marred by fancy cost. Despite his Marine Corps tendencies, Wil has worked steodily with the YP Squodron goin- ing greot deal of ship handling experience. Even though Wil ran into the pilings in one of his better moments, his work got him an GOD and command qualification, on experience which few Marines can boost. His constant striving for improvement has in- spired all those around him and will show him to great success as a " leader of men. Six Hundred Fiffy-thfce ALBERT McCONNELL HUTCHINS Hutch, known to his classmates as " Fat Albert, " came to us from Tucson, Arizona, by way of boot camp and the University of Arizona. Ever since Plebe Summer, when he scored a 4,0 on his applied strength test. Hutch has achieved excellence in everything he has done. Al had a reputation for being able to teach even the most helpless drowner to swim. In addition to this, his high academic standing made him an excel- lent source for the right answer. " Always active m doss affairs, Al could be depended upon to get a |ob done right. His quick smile and sense of humor light- ened the burdens of everyone who knew him. With a favorite saying, " I ' ll do something great someday, |ust give me time, " we oil know Al will be a proud addition to any wardroom in the Navy. WILLIAM FROST JENKINS Drinxs came to Canoe U, from the beer country of Wisconsin, and immediately decided that USNA was a nice place to be from, not at. He soon found out that Glee Club and Catholic Choir trips gave him ample opportunity to indulge in his favorite pastimes, beer and beautiful girls. Bill didn ' t spend ail his time par- tying though. He managed to maintain a consistently high average while pursuing a ma|or in applied science. Bill also found the time to lend his talents to company sports, especially heavyweight football and several musical club shows. Still undecided between Navy Air and Nuclear Power, he has one definite plan for June, 1970. Regardless of what branch of the Navy gets him, we all believe he will be an excellent officer. ALAN ROGER McCAULEY Ma c staggered to Annapolis after an illustrious career at Morris Knolls High in Denville, New Jersey, With a knack for finding excitement and trouble, Al always came out smelling like a rose. Whether hustling back from College Park or D.C. an hour late, or brawling in one of our local taverns, Al always displayed that " domn the torpedoes " attitude for which he is so well known. Academics were never a problem for Al, as he managed to minor in Applied Science while never get- ting less than ten hours sleep a day. On the sports fields, Al was best known for his " deadly " accuracy with the soccer boll, and was always a fierce compet- itor in intromurals. Upon graduation, Mac plons to pursue a career in Naval Aviation. Al ' s even temper and jovial wit will moke him a sure success any- where. Six Hundred Fifty-four ROBERT ALAN MEYER A Navy |unior, it was only natural thot Rob give up the sun, girls, and sand of Saratoga, California, for tlie better life fiere at Novy. Not letting this initial mistake get him down, Rob has been active in numer- ous sports and ECA ' s - the Photo Club, French Club, Scubo Club, Marine Technology Society, Battalion Swim Team, Sailing Squadron, and company sports just to mention them oil. Despite this rigorous sched- ule, he still finds time to study when oil else fails. Picking oceonogrophy os his minor, naturolly has led Rob to career in Naval Aviation. This coupled with his avid healthy interest in the finer things in life and his forceful likable nature will surely make him a success wherever he goes. BRADLEY WILLIAM NEMETH Rarely seen without his broad smile and good word for everyone. Nemo, as one con tell by his lazy drawl, hails from Houston, Texas. An outstanding athlete in high school. Brad was on his way to similar honors at Navy until sidelined by a knee injury. Since then, he hos been a key to the success of the company in- tramural teams and an active leader in class offairs as class officer and as a member of the class policy committee. For from being ready to settle down. Brad spends his weekdoys in the pad dreaming of the weekend to come and the many wonderful hours with a girl by his side in his new MG. An inspiration to all with his good sense of humor ond determination, Nemo will be a welcome addition to the air arm of the Fleet. JC ' i - ' J i " 4 4 4 .. " MICHAEL FRANCIS NEVINS Mike sailed into the Naval Academy from Boston, Massachusetts, and entered into his determined and never ending stuggle to lose weight. Fat Nevs, ' as he quickly came to be known, hod high ospirotions toward the United States Marine Corps, but decidedly changed his mind when he found that while dodging bullets, one might run into a bug. He hos since taken the challenge of wedding bells and Navy Air. Disploy- ing on exceptional knock for quick wit, Mike finds his struggle to lose weight supplemented by the stuggle to extricate himself from the unforeseen circum- stances his wit gets him into; and though he seldom does, Nev always comes out laughing, cousing all of us to wish him and his future wife the best of every- thing in the years to come. MICHAEL JOHN NOVAK Mike, who colls a small community in the frozen wilds of Northern Michigan his home, come to USNA fresh from Traverse City Saint Francis High School. Mike has olways actively engoged in sports, particu- larly in the company softboll and battalion weightlift- ing teams, and in Coach Smith ' s brigade boxing pro- gram. One particular facet of life at USNA always seemed to receive more attention than the others: academics. Overloads ond double overloads notwith- standing, he olways seemed to end the semester with above overage grades. Perhaps Mike s greatest asset is his unfailing willingness to help others, no matter what the circumstances. This particular quality will surely be of great benefit to him and to those with whom he works throughout his Novol career. Mike plans to enter Naval Aviation as an NFO upon gradua- tion ' JOHN REID OAKES John come to Navy from a large, close-knit Catholic family in St. Claires Shores, Michigan, with o goal - to become the best Naval Officer in the world. He set to work immediately and has not slowed his pace in the least since. His hard work and brilliance in aco- demics has brought him stars more thon once despite overloads and holding down a time-consuming spot on the Academy Debote Team. He is always prepared and it has more than once been said, if anyone in the world has it, John has, anything from paper clips or stapler to academic assistance. Having shown on inclination toward PGM ' s after immediote masters, John, with his uncompromising devotion to principle, should go far toward the ottoinment of his gool. i Six Hundred Fifty-f.v «P DAVID BEARDSLEY OBERHOLTZER Early m his life, OB made a choice between remaining in the beer capital of the worici or coming to Navy. Along with his first mistake, he monageci to make many more along the way, Dave ' s worm personality onci shining smile brought pleasure to everyone who knew him. He was very active in the Masqueroders during his four years here. One thing about OB ' s vari- ous parts, he never hod to worry about laryngitis. OB had a certain knack for getting along with his profs. Whether this con be attributed to his personality or not, only the profs will know. After graduation, OB plans to go Navy Air. At least while he is flying, he won ' t hove to worry about the tide coming in and washing away his clothes. Good Luck OB! MICHAEL PATRICK OLIVER After seventeen years of rooming the world as an Air Force brat, Mike finally found Nirvana at USNA. Even though Ollie is in the upper 10% of our class and has established himself prominently among our company stripers, we don ' t hold it against him. His mastery of the academic situation has earned him stars almost every semester, and he is alwoys willing to help those of us who grovel in ignorance. While working on a ma|or in Politics and Economics, Mike usually finds time during the weekends for the various pleasures associated with our meager existence. The only ma|or disappointment encountered was when Mike discov- ered the rooms only had two mirrors. After gradua- tion, Mike plans to join the crew in Pensocola. Nukes are another possibility, so keep cool Hymie. ROBERT ERSKINE PRINCE Bob, occasionally referred to as the five-foot-four dy- namo, come to Navy from the warm tropics of Pana- ma.

Rick isn ' t exactly all blue and gold, but he ' s put in four hard years to make the Navy his career, and that ' s saying a little. Originally from all over, Idaho, Florida, Germany, Washington State, and finally Utah, Jack s passed up the good old Air Force life he hod known for eighteen years to come here, and you con bet that what s the Air Force ' s loss IS the Navy ' s gam. Using his athletic prowess in dodg- ing Company Officers for several years. Rick is finally ready to take on the Destroyer Navy and put to some practical use what he has picked up here ot the Acad- emy. Most of us will remember him for his two way ' nose and his gaseous personality. Marriage and a long Naval life awaits Rick in June, but what more con man ask for? DAVID PERRY McCAMPBELL Dove didn ' t decide on the Academy until he had had two years of college life at Florida State University. The transition from the free life was almost too much for him, but he finally settled down and has been set- tling ever since. " The Mole, " a native of Eustis, Flori- da, IS well known for his ability to burrow into the pad and disappear tor hours on end. Even with his heavy eyelids. Dove has maintained respectable marks in his courses, pursuing a minor in oceanogra- phy between naps. He also found time to punt for the company heavyweight team, and high |ump for bat- talion track. Dave wonts to follow in the footsteps of his Dad, who is the all-time Navy Ace. Wherever Dove goes, his quiet, good humor and determination will pove the way for an outstanding Novol career. Six Hundred Sixty-two ' ■.jMPW ' tli?! ■» ' j ' . ' -I;: . ' . ' -9 .jii " !, ' -. ' MYLES THOMAS McGRANE Hailing from the tiny town of Irvington- on-the-Hudson, New York, Myles nnade on easy tran- sition from tfie wild days at Irvington Higli to the more sober military life ot the Academy. Not being much of scholar, he excelled in athletics (soccer, basketball, and lacrosse) until in|uring his knee Youngster year. But not being one to wallow in self- pity, Myles mode a tremendous comeback his second class year and regained his status as a superb athlete and competitor. While sports were his strong point, girls were his downfall. Prior to every big weekend, one would find Myless classmates rocking their brains trying to set him up with that perfect girl who he could never find. Future plans ore flight school and the never ending search for the girl of his dreoms. JACK OWEN MOODY Moods come to the Academy from the flower seed capital of the world, Lompoc, California. He brought with him a sincere interest in academics matched only by his great tan. Moods got off to o slow start, acodemically, the last three yeors and didn ' t really find a subject that interested him until he signed up for the Lote Show on Channel 20. Always ready with a comment about his Marine friends, he II be best remembered for his performances at company parties. Jock s great sporting love wos boxing, and Joe and Myles con tell you how good he was. Besides boxing, there was olwoys those extracurricular parties. A charter member of Delta Chi Alpha, Moods helped contribute to the richest aluminum deposit ever found along the Dorsey Creek. During the winter season, there was always K. C. s or the teachers ' to brighten up a Saturday night. Wit and humor are his trademarks, and he II be a welcome addition to any corner s wardroom. WILLIAM ALLAN MUGG A Navy Junior, Bill come to USNA directly after gradu- ating from J. E. B. Stuort High School in Annondole, Virginia. The rigors of Plebe year presented little problem to Bill, as he succeeded in making Dean s List both semesters. The transition in becoming on upper- classman foiled to hinder Bill ' s academic endeavors, OS he sought a ma|or in Aerospace Engineering. His efforts were hardly confined to academics. He soon become a standout in soccer and football. His real specialty, however, wos in lacrosse, o sport which he picked up during his Youngster year. Bill always held deep admiration of the opposite sex, and very few big weekends went by with Bill left alone in the wardroom. His interests were nearly shottered, how- ever, by a bedridden sow, but Bill quickly bounced back and has been en|oying himself ever since. With his successful recipe for hard work, friendliness, and leadership, the ranks of Naval Aviators will indeed be receiving a prize pockoge. JAMES HENRY NEALE Life with the Homestead, Florida, farmer is the fur- thest you con get from a dull experience. Whether he s doing handstand pushups off a desk, hanging from a rafter in the nototorium, or just exuding neol- isms, every doy is o new odventure in life for Jim. The only time he isn t expounding the Neole philosophy on almost any subject imaginoble is when he s osleep. When he s not actively engaged in making a shombles of the otherwise peaceful company area, the former can be found either attempting to improve his mast- ery of gymnastics, blowing o bugle with the D B or trying to mointoin his 3.0 average as a math minor. During o few selected weekends in the year, he con be observed entertaining some lucky young lady with the famous Neole wit. It will be a bright day indeed for Jim when he graduates and has a chance to ottock the outside world with the some exuberance he has exhibited here. Currently, it seems Navy Air will be the next institution to benefit from the experience Jomes Henry Neale will put it through. WILLIAM HUTCHINSON PARKS Newnon, Georgia? Whot a home town for a guy. But, don t let size fool you. Recruiters of several universi- ties found Bill, but he turned them all down for Navy. Sports were always Bill ' s favorite activity. For all four years. Bill participated in basketball and track, letter- ing in each of his varsity years. Perhops those who will remember his hard fighting spirit most ore those opponents under the bockboord who seldom got a re- bound while Bill was there. Though Bill spent many hours at practice, his interest in professional knowl- edge made him on ovid reader. Never hard on Plebes, Bill led by example and held the respect of all 4 c who knew him Long decided on several things. Bill heads for a career in Surface Line and a wife from where else, Newnon. PS., Bill, don t forget that Youngster cruise TIMOTHY MARTIN REICHERT Coming straight to Annapolis U. from high school in chilly Denver, Colorado, where most of his time wos spent on the ski slopes, Tim easily od|usted to every aspect of life on the Severn except the climate. While keeping his grades among the top in the class and ac- tively participating in intramural Softball, soccer, and water polo, he was always willing, whenever neces- sary, to lend a hand and take extro responsibility. His conscientious leadership in many extracurricular com- pony activities helped in innumerol small ways to im- prove the entire Brigode. There con be no doubt thot Tim s motivation and ability to i nfluence others will be a welcome and valuable addition to whatever ca- reer field he enters in the Fleet. 1 Six Hi idred Sixty. three CHARLES BUCHANAN REIGNER Chuck IS one ot those Mids who con call almost any place home. Coming to USNA from Great Lakes, Illi- nois, his home was to change once during each of his four years at Navy. The transition from life as a Navy Junior to that of a middle came as quite a shock, but Chuck quickly ad|usted to the routine of Bancroft Hall and began to en|oy the fun-filled years that lay ahead of him at Navy. He has the notable, if not somewhat dubious, distinction of having mode it through Plebe year without a single demerit. A feat that, thankfully, was not to be duplicated in future years. Studies seemed to come fairly easy for Chuck, as he managed to make Superintendent ' s List with some degree of regularity, although he did hove his problems with the Bull Department. Chuck is thinking of a career in the Silent Service, but wherever he ends up, we wish him the best of luck. CHARLES BARNES REINHARDT, JR. Buddy, or Otie as he is sometimes called by his class- mates, came to the Academy from Bristol, Tennessee. He found a bit of contrast between the hills of his home state and the flat lands of Maryland, but Plebe year didn ' t give Buddy much time for comparing ge- ography. Buddy has a rather quiet personality and a corefreeness about him that helps him win friends easily, and very often ofter evening meal, during study hour, or after tops, his room would be the loca- tion of many a bull session. " On the weekends. Buddy became a member of the wardroom crew or was found attending a sporting event. Although his favorite sport is hunting, in which he participates whenever possible, he didn ' t find much of a program in that area at the Academy and resorted to putting m a season with the plebe and varsity swimming teams. Upon graduation. Buddy hopes to be ordered to Pensocolo for flight school, where his ability will be a welcomed asset. KENNETH VAUGHN SPENSER Leaving behind him the booming megalopolis of Whippany, New Jersey, a prep school, and a Navy family, the transition to Academy life was a rather minor step for Spense. Although an excellent student. Ken was not one to let academics get in the way of a weekend. Being o charter member of the Delta Chi Alpha, he contributed a unique entertainment and merriment to the society ' s meetings with his humor, wit, and singing abilities. A highly spirited competi- tor, Spense re|ected varsity sports for a starring role in intramurols in order to leave time to develop his beach muscles properly. Spense ' s one fault during his four years was his affinity for skinny girls, a com- modity which he always found in abundance. He hopes to keep his nose out of trouble after graduation by keeping his chin in. Spense will be an asset to any ship or fox-hole. 1 ROBERT EMIL STEINHORST, JR. Sterner came to the Academy from Utico, New York, after 4 ' ? years in high school and a half-year stretch OS a " tinknocker. " He holds his backwoods education in Adirondack Mountains responsible for his expres- sive literary and speaking abilities. Steiner would have liked to moke lacrosse his sport, but knee in- juries Plebe and Youngster years benched everything. Known also as Tecumseh or Indian because of his re- semblance to the great bronze statue, Steiner was o member of a certain 31st Company social group. Along with a certain Texan, Steiner was co-founder of Delta Chi Alpha " and could always be counted on to rally for a show " whether low or high tide variety. His spirit and humor will be remembered along with that of loey, Butler, Moods, Pooh-Bear, Mudge, and Spense as choruses of Royal Canal " echo from the shores of Mayo Beach to the banks of Dorsey Creek. Upon graduation, Steiner plans on a stretch in the Marine Corps, hopefully in the air.

Six Hundred S:xty-si ed ROBERT ELLISON ADAMS Bud, " who should hove known better, come to the Academy via Buliis Prep. A Kensington, Maryland, man, he could usuolly count on the Hey Bud, how about a ride . . . routine around leove time. Before becoming a steady intramural competitor, Bud played on the Plebe golf team. The varsity lost a chance for his services to the coll of the pad. ' Though a top man academically. Bud never managed to stay up after eleven o clock - no matter whot. But it was Bud s frequent trips into insanity, and his dead-eye accuracy for food-throwing, that will be remembered by all. At the moment, he is undecided between Sur face line and subs. Whatever he chooses, a sense of humor and a sound, logical mind insure Bud ' s future success CHARLES BARRY BECKMAN Barry has been on outstanding addition to the Bri- gade since the first few doys of Plebe summer. His ability to command respect and accomplish an as- signed task has been illustrated time and time ogoin. This IS evidenced by the credible |ob done as a sum- mer Squad leader lost year. Barry was born and raised in central Missouri, and while in high school he was a starting basketball player for three years and President of the School ' s Honor Society. While here, he has been o member of a Brigade Champion Bottal- lon basketball team as well as a stalwart on the com- pany soccer and bosketboll teams. Ever since one of our classmates introduced him to his sister at our first Tea Fight, he has been happily occupied every leave and liberty period. I guess some people luck out! Barry hopes to go into the Marine Corps; but no mat- ter where he goes, he will be a fine officer and a cred- it to the Naval Service. ROBIN PAUL BUSHORE " Bush " came to the Academy from Bellevue, Wash- ington. He IS a member of the battalion cross country team. Superintendent s list, and Radio Club. One would most likely find Robin down in the radio shock, better known to outsiders as the cave, ' talking to his girl or girls! The time remaining is spent either rearranging the wiring in his room or building giant amplifiers, copable of producing sounds that might cause even Mother B " to shake. Robin also likes oceanogrophy and photography, and hopes to go into subs or naval reseorch. Whatever Robin decides to pursue, he con be expected to be successful. The Navy is sure to gam a fine Naval Officer, no matter what field he decides to follow upon groduation. Six Hundred Siyty-seven LAWRENCE STEPHEN DERRIG Larry came to the Academy from Villa Park, Illinois, after a brilliant high school career in which he ex- celled in football, basketball and baseball, as well as academics. His well-rounded athletic ability and his easy-going good nature have gamed him many friends on campus. He can usually be found ploying handball or shooting pool during the afternoons or glued to the tube at night. The first place to look for him, though, is between the sheets. Despite his unor- thodox study habits, he has been able to maintain a respectable QPR. If oil things go right for Larry, he II be wading around with a seal team. No matter what field he enters, he should hove no trouble attaining success. CHRISTIAN FRANK DUBIA, JR. Christian, more commonly known as Duke by class- mates, friends, and females, came to the Academy from Murray, Kentucky, where he excelled in football. It wasn ' t until his second class year, when he decided to shed that extra forty pounds, that he showed the world his football abilities by winning a starting posi- tion at linebacker on Coach Clouds ' Mighty Mites. " Along with football, Duke has made his presence known on the campus of Canoe U. by propelling the bottolion handball team to on undefeated Brigade Championship, starring at forward wing on the rugby team and cutting much rug. " While pursuing a For- eign Affairs minor and o ma|or in Female Affairs, Duke was able to moke the best use of his pen and has done a credible |ab. I ' m sure Duke ' s nose will shrink as his success grows. DAVID ROY ELLISON A native of Weymouth, Massachusetts, Dave come to USNA after a year at Boston University. Ever since his arrival, Dave s sincerity and desire hove impressed all who hove come into contact with him. He s always willing to lend a hand, and his classmates have learned to depend upon him no matter how tough the going gets. While a diligent student, Dave devotes most of his free time to athletics and the Blue Tram- poline. Though he vehemently denies this. Dove is on a first name basis with the Pod Mons ' er who inhabits The Rock. ' Though Dave ' s puns often bring howls of protest from his classmates; his infectious humor, like a banana, has appeal. A DD and a pretty girl figure prominently in Dove s plons. His professionalism and devotion to duty will stand Dove in good stead and insure his success in any endeavor he chooses to un- dertake. Six Hundred Sixty-eight WILLIAM MICHAEL FERRIS When Bill, better known as the Dwort, ' come to the Academy from Jockson, Michigan, he may have lost his Harvard lawyer haircut and a few girls, but he gamed new prominence on Novy s debate team. His doily workout consisted of dragging his bag full of 3x5 cards over to Maury Hall every afternoon. His usual performance on finals of B-B-A has kept Bill on the Dean s List for all but one of his semesters. His sports interests have varied from a stint on the Plebe golf team, where he holds the course record for smashed putters, to handball, where he holds the rec- ord for smashed bonds. Bill s methodical way of at- tacking any problem will certainly lead him to a suc- cessful career as an N F JOHN EDWARD FLANAGAN Jack hails from Springfield, Massachusetts. While here at the Academy, Jack has seen four years of hard work. His nome bos appeared on the Superintendent s List ond the Dean s List, much to his surprise; and his glib tongue earned him the post of Sports Editor of the Log. A practical joker, he and his roommate hove perpetrated many a hoax while here ot Canoe U. A destroyerman from way bock. Jack has never lost sight of why he come to the Academy. One could probably sum up Jocks career at Navy with the words desire and perseverance. Once Jock sets his sights on reaching a goal, he will not be denied no matter what obstacles must be overcome. This trait, which is so much port of Jock s life, will stand him in good steod throughout his life ond assure him of a success- ful future. EDMUND PETER GIAMBASTIANI Ed, hailing from the thriving metropolis of Canastoto, New York, come to the Academy in the sweltering summer of 1966 with stars in his eyes. Four long years beside the Boy changed that starry-eyed kid into man about town. Known throughout the Bn- gade as a wires |ock, he was constantly pulling his classmates out of the dork and dreary holes dug by the Electrical Engineering Committee. There weren ' t too many holes that he couldn t help other people out of, but there were a few he couldn ' t gel out of him- self. During his first class year, Ed filled his time with getting for, for away from the boat school in his new MG. With his thriving ospirations to do his best, Ed will moke a big hit with his service choice ond will shock a few people with his going power. BRYCE LOWELL GRAHAM Bryce come to the bustling city of Annapolis from the one-policemon hamlet of Page, North Dokoto, and he never has quite adjusted to the four-story skyscrapers that abound on the Navy campus. After a year at the University of North Dakota as a mechanical engineer- ing ma|or, Bryce decided to come to Navy in onticipo- tion of entering Naval aviation. Unfortunately, he does not expect to be qualified for pilot training be- cause of his vision, but Bryce is looking forword to another set of wings, those of a Naval flight officer. No matter what field of service he finally chooses, or where his future deployments send him, Bryce will al- ways be quick to make long-lasting friends and to shore his carefree but sincere personality with every- one he meets. RALPH THOMAS GUTIERREZ Tom, better known os Gut, (the only red-haired, blue-eyed Mexican in the world) spent a well-rounded four yeors at the Academy; more rounded towards athletics and hoving o good time than academics. Graduation, o varsity letter in 150-pound football, and passing Wires were his most precious goals achieved. Rarely seen with the some girl more than three weekends in a row, Tom was always looking ot the greener grass on the other side of the fence. Get- ting into the wide open country far, far from the Academy with his motorcycle and his girl was his con- stant goal. So constant were these outings that he come close more than once to civilian life. His daring will be of value to whichever service he chooses. Tom s big smile and his fighting spirit will always be remembered JAMES DAVID HOOK Still only fledgling in his field, Jim is quickly becom- ing one of the masters in the art of being a punster. Mony of his friends hove learned to think before they speak ' because of the imminent consequences due to poorly-worded sentence. Jim ' s tolent in this art IS based around his high intellect. He hos olwoys stood high in class standing and should have no trouble ot all m becoming on Air Intelligence Officer. With his drive ond ambition, it is opporent thot Jim will succeed in the Navy or in the reol world. ' Unfor- tunately for Jim, he come from the quiet countryside of Nebraska ond fell into the clutches of a big city girl from Baltimore. Six Hundred Sixly-mr AGUEDO MENOR INGCO Agui, Gido, or Bobby, as he is known throughout the halls of Bancroft, shows the multitude of friends he has made since arrivmg from the Philippines. Agui come to the Academy after spending one year at the University of The Philippines and one year at the Philippines Military Academy. Soon finding out that CONFIDENTIAL was a no-no ' for him and a sign of free time, he began to use this time to achieve high grades. If anyone asks, Where ' s Inks? " , the usual reply is the Library. If Aqui passes first class cruise and first class swim, the stars he has seen every se- mester will graduate him at the top files of our doss; and we are all sure he will go on to be a great asset to the Philippine Service. TERENCE LYNN KIPP Before coming to the Academy from Port Huron, Michigan, Terry knew little of the Navy, but he imme- diately became one of the gung-ho " ones and has developed a sincere interest in the Navy. A hard studier, Terry has successfully attacked an aerospace mo|or to prepare himself for a career in Naval Avia- tion. He is also an active participator in the Officers Christian Union. When not studying or on the " blue trampoline, " which frequently gets a good workout, Terry plays hard on the intramural field. He enjoys all sports and has shown considerable ability. Always seeming to know the right formulas, Terry has never missed the 3.0 needed for the Superintendents List and has helped many other lesser slashes during exam time. A dedicated Navy man, some flattop will receive a hard-working officer when Terry reports aboard. MICHAEL BARRY KNUDSEN Mike, better known on campus as ' NUBINUMBNUTS, ' has contributed a great deal to the easy-going atmo- sphere of the company. Through conscientious work at Lou ' s, " Nubi has developed his elbows to the point where he is one of the top goalies in the Bri- gade in fieldball. Nubi spent two years at Penn State before entering the Naval Academy, where he was known for his recalcitrant attitude. Mike is a friend ' s friend to any who have met him; a truly sincere per- son. Mike has a very bright future ahead because of his understanding for people; that is, if he can buy back some of his uniforms from the " Village. " DOUGLASS HUGH LAMARTIN Doug, being a Navy Junior, got to live in some of the most exciting parts of the country, like Charleston, South Carolina. A moderate reactionary by choice, Doug IS ready to argue about almost anything. Since he IS an outstanding student, he has been able to con- centrate on other things; restricting Youngster year, becoming a one-man lightweight football team, own- ing motorcycle, and constantly hitting the pad be- fore anybody else in the company, including the Plebes. Destroyers loom large in Doug ' s future, since they ' ll lead to post graduate school and engineering duty, DUDLEY WADE LEATH Duds " didn ' t have a nickname when he came here. True, few people used to coll him " Do-right " behind his bock, but you could hardly coll that o nickname. It didn ' t take long before the guys got tired of saying Hey Dudley, and in accordance with S.O.P. short- ened it to Hey Duds ' Perhaps it was only because of middies perverted kindness that they didnt coll him DUD. " Whatever, all seemed to agree that the plural of the singular got the |ob done without im- porting quite the some connotation. " Duds spent his first two years at USNA searching for his own thing and the last two trying to do it. ESMOND WILTON MARKS Es began his college career at the University of Florida playing freshman football. After a full year of the good life, " Es decided to join the ranks- of the Bri- gode. Spending his entire Plebe year on training tables, he quickly showed his ability to find the easy way. Although not the most enthusiastic student, he " s olwoys the one to ask where the party is Saturday night Joining the Little Blue in his Youngster year, Es began an extremely successful career with the 150- pound football squad, which the team recognized by electing him captain in his first class year. With a lit- tle luck, Es will be flying o Navy |et someday; that is, if they con keep him on his horse and off his cycle. Six Hundred Seventy i(f . GREGORY BALDWIN MURPHY Murph, better known os Joe Fatty Arbuckle, " by those out at the Palace, came to the Acodemy from McLean, Virginia, where he hoci been a star in foot- balL Greg pursueci the sport of football ot the Acade- my, earning a starting position Youngster year. Dur- ing that same year, Greg was forced to give up foot- ball because of on injury. Although Greg ' s grades didn t indicate it, he was way ahead of his doss, hav- ing started his Youngster year during November of our Plebe yeor. You could olways find Greg in one of two places; he was either in the pod or off memoriz- ing the TV schedule. Although seemingly without a core, Greg is a very serious person whose sincerity will provide all that is necessary for o successful fu- ture DANIAL MALTBY RUGG, III Anyone knowing Don will have no trouble figuring out where Ernest Hemingway got his main character for The Old Man and the Sea. The Super Sailor, " who hails from Port Washington, Long Island, graduated from The Choate School and spent twenty months in the Navy before attending NAPS. Upon coming to the Academy, Dons maturity, interest in his classmates, and willingness to help o friend were quickly noticed by all and continue to moke him one of the most re- spected and popular members of our class. Academics were never very close friends with Dan, but hard work managed to keep him o step ahead of trouble. If is little wonder thot he did have o few close colls with his ocodemics. A stalwart member of the sailing team, Dan managed to miss more dosses because of soiling meets than probobly any other othlete in Novy history. A gentleman, a good drinker ond o general all-around nice guy, Navy Line should hove on out- standing officer in the Old Man and we wish him the best of luck. Six Huidred Seventy-one ROGER ALAN SAGER Roger first marched to Annapolis from New City, New York. A confirmed Marine from the first day of Plebe summer, Buiko " was an Army brat, and rumor has it that he only ended up at the Naval Academy because he got lost on his way to West Point. He eventually recovered from the shock, however, and even took to the sec for two seasons of lightweight crew. His in- terests varied all the way from girls to history ond from poetry to girls. Always ready and happy to help, Rog was active in his church and volunteered to help underprivileged children in Annapolis. Though his Academy allegiance was sometimes doubtful, his devotion to his Country was unquestionable, as will be his service to her. WILLIAM HENRY SCHMERMUND Even though " Schmerm " hailed from the Frozen Pizza State of New Jersey, he never let this misfortune ride him down. Bill ' s quick wit and even quicker tongue won him many friends and many quick term papers. Though his pad enjoyed a good tour of duty. Bill could always be found leading the intramural football teams to victory on Fog Field. While local honeys kept him busy on the weekends. Bill found his best times in California. Always the life of the party. Bill orig- inated a new dance in his own likeness. He once was inspired to write a song for a company Christmas party which inspired our company officer enough to read General Order 21. Though the Navy may get shortchanged with only five years of his valuable time, Bill will be a success in any field of his own choosing. JOHN WESLEY SEWARD, JR. Joy came to the hallowed halls of Mother Bancroft from Harrison, New York, with the intention of be- coming submariner. Jay spent most of his time at the Academy either studying or daydreaming. His fa- vorite daydream concerned a souped-up cor, a bottle of something stronger than water, and a beautiful, shapely girl, all of which were within his reach at one time. Studies were always important to him, and he completed more than the required number of courses at the Academy. Joy ' s intention to go submarines was changed during second-class summer, and he now plans to become a Naval Flight Officer. There is no doubt that with all of his determination and ability Joy will achieve all for which he strives. Six Hundred Seventy-two GILBERT MARK STAUDT Gibby, OS he is fondly referred to by the Brigade, comes to Navy from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Before attending the Academy, Gibby spent one year at Grove City College in Pennsylvania where he was o member of the Epsilon Pi Fraternity and varsity wres- tling and track teams. During his first two years at the School for Sailors, Gibby porticipoted in Plebe ond varsity wrestling. He quickly rose to become one of the leaders of his class. Not only in the othletic, but academic deportment as well, Gibby proved to be quite gifted. He has mointained o high class ranking throughout his years at Novy. Among Gibby s fine qualities and accomplishments, his most outstanding feature is his ability to moke friends and lead not only his |uniors, but peers os well. He has often been referred to by his classmates os the Navy s onswer to Tommy Smothers! The Fleet will be getting one of the Academy s finest graduates and lenders in the form of Gibby Staudt RICHARD MERRYMAN STEARNS Dick, OS he is known by his friends in Bancroft Holl, packed his clothes and traveled to Crobtown from far away Baltimore. He come to the Academy with the greatest knowledge of ships and Novy life, but after Youngster cruise, switched his love to the Marine Corps, into which he has thrown his oil. He could be found after classes either ploying on o company in- tromurol teom, in town helping underprivileged kids, or in the pod. Dick, o sincere person and a de- voted individual to his Country and its service, will be great asset to both his Country and to all those who come in contact with him. BARRY LEE STEELMAN Barry, sometimes known as Boruch, " brought from Los Angeles all of the warmth and fun usually ossoci oted with the West Coast. His four years at the Novol Acodemy have included almost everything except studying. On the fencing team during his Plebe year, he has since been on asset to the company s intramu- ral teams. Originator of the good deal, Barry s room wos the place to go if in need of a flight home. Active in the Big Brother Program and other com- munity proiects, Barry hos helped mony underprivi- leged boys in Crobtown. A sincere and energetic indi- vidual, Barry will leave his mark both in and out of the Novy CLAYTON EDMOND WHITAKER Cloy, known to his friends as Whitokowski, over- came the difficulty of hoving o reserve Army colonel for father, ond found his way to Mother B. from Billings, Montana. Academics were not Cloy s forte, os the nicknome suggests, and o 2 00 for the semester wos grovy. In the Field House, though, Clay showed that he was second to none.

The begin- ning of each semester was o struggle to see whether he would break his oll-time low; but somehow, he al- ways pulled it out. Denny was always in the middle of campaign to win some lovely. He was usually successful due to good planning, though he hod his share of failures, including five weeks of mono.

Six Hurxlred Seventy-five JAMES DORSEY ANDERTON Dofsey, much to his occasional disbehef, gave up the froternity life at SMU after one year onci came to USNA as an eager Plebe. After the initial shock, Jim found his rightful place as fourth class company com- mander Continuing in the position of company com- mander, he earned the respect and trust of all of his classmates, patiently putting up with all our little gripes. Jim has an unlimited amount of determination and self-confidence, and has pursued a ma|or in Aero- space Engineering in addition to his administrative duties. Besides being an able leader, Jim has an excel- lent personality and can always be counted on to con- tribute his abundant share when there is fun to be had. With his personal integrity and concern for the welfare of the other man, Jim is destined for a posi- tion of great responsibility, and will surely be a credit to the Naval Academy and to his country. DAVID ALAN BLANK Dave came to USNA from Hickory High School m Shar- on, Pennsylvania. While in high school, he participat- ed in football, wrestling and track, and was on honor student He was a member of the Plebe Wrestling Team his first year at the Academy. He spent his re- maining three years as a Brigade Boxer. Dove mo- |ored in Aerospace Engineering, and despite its diffi- culty, was frequently on the Superintendent s List. He was treasurer of the AIAA and later on was Secretary for the club. He was also interested in scuba diving and became on instructor his second class year Daves immediate plans are Navy Air. He hopes to eventuolly become a member of the Aerospace Team as an Astronaut. JAMES EDWARD BOYERS, JR. Coming from the bowels of Georgia, Thomasfon s fa- vorite son found Plebe yeor not very much to his lik- ing. Trying to maintain the customs and traditions of the true Southern gentleman while at the same time trying to ad|ust to the rigors of the Naval Academy, Ed, better known as Baby Huey, hod several close calls. But with several cold showers and many nights tossing and turning, Ed, by some stroke of luck has been able to cope with any situation which come his way. Like everyone, hero worship ploys a big port of our lives. Keeping true to the norm, Ed bought himself ten-gallon hat and a leather lacket so that he could be like his hero, " Hoss " Cortwright. All things consid- ered, we all wish Ed lots of luck in his profession, whether it be Navy Air or head chemist in one of Georgia s leading chemical plants. Six Hundred Sevenly-si MICHAEL CHARLES BRANDS Lured away from the night life of Kansas City by the call of the sea, Mike found a home m Annapolis. He earned the name Middle Plebe year because of his similarity to the ideal Academy type. Although ham- mered severely by the uppercloss his first year, he managed to survive and pull a 2.0. He astounded the world by reaching the Dean s List Youngster year and never leaving it after thot. This feat was even more amazing since he filled his extra slot each semester with challenging management course. Mike be- lieved in strong body as well as a strong mind, and could be seen hitting the field of blue every after- noon. Although he was occasionally forced to remain in the confines of Annopolis, he ond his spirits re- mained high. After many sleepless nights pondering his fote on the choppy seas or in o mud filled trench, Mike finally chose Navy Air. He may not tie the knot for long time, but it is doubtful that this will stop him from en|oying the better things in life. MARTI N DOUGLAS CARPENTER After spending most of his life in Indionapolis, Indi- ana, Marty decided that it wos time to see the rest of the world. So, he pined the Navy and managed to spend four years in Annapolis. Undaunted by Young ster Cruise, Carps chose Nov Ops os his minor in order to be prepared for his Naval career. Many a late night would find him hitting the books, unless, or course there was o card game going. Despite his intense aca- demic endeavors, Marty somehow managed to stumble onto the Superintendent s List and donote his golden voice to the Glee Club Morty always hod a kind word for everything, ond his amiable nature and dedicated energies as a midshipman will undoubtedly carry over into his career in Novy Air He will moke on outstanding Aviator, as the word almost was never a part of his vocobulory.

When he was not m his room making models or skimming his lessons in Bull, he could usually be found elsewhere, his thirst for knowledge as well as other things, was unquenchable Always a sports en- thusiast, Terry excelled m battalion footboll, basket- ball and lacrosse. In his four years as o midshipman, he also specialized in D. C. Weekends, the pod, and girls.

His years spent on a Montana ranch provided him with little background except on the rifle range. Cut from the Plebe squash team by a crippling knee in|ury, he spent the better part of the next two years as o high striper on the excused squad. Not a firm believer in the negative discipline bond system of USNA, he read between the lines of the regulations on occasion and frequently visited the Battalion Office. His foremost interest included An- tiphonol Choir, Editor-in-Chief of the LOG, and quite often a voluptuous blonde. Undoubtedly Pensocolo is standing by for his arrival. WILLIAM KIM FOSTER Kim brought with him to the Naval Academy the var- ied background of a Navy Junior, his father a submar- iner and member of the class of ' 47. Kim never ' seemed to firxi academics too difficult, and the re- sults were evident in his high QPR and the frequent El sessions held in his room. He sti)l contends he ranks sleep, golf, and women in that order, but he walks in his sleep with some of the best-looking golf bags I ' ve ever seen on the weekends. After graduation, he is hoping for an immediate masters program, then in- tends to give either Surface or Subsurface Line a try. His natural ability to lead and his ability to get along will no doubt serve him well in whatever he chooses to do. J. T. came to Navy from the action city of tomorrow, Naperville, Illinois. He brought with him a guitar, ' clossical piano music, dreams, and dedication. Jeff has been an indispensable member of the Catholic Choir, Glee Club, Drum and Bugle Corps, Musical Club Show, and the Borbar Shop Quartet. Despite his many musical commitments, he has been able to spearhead the company basketball team and obtain a ma|or in theoretical mothemotics. Jeff ' s warm personality and easygoing ways have won him many friends at the Academy and many more on the outside world with each Glee Club trip. Graduation will bring J. T. into the Surface Line branch of the Navy and closer to his musical counterpart and fiance, none other than the girl next door. WALTER MICHAEL KUBIAK Hailing from Audubon, Pennsylvania, Walt came to the Nova! Academy right from high school. He was active in the Glee Club and Catholic Choir as well as being instrumental in revamping the Plebe System through our class policy. During the summer, scuba diving was a favorite pursuit. Walt ma|ored in Eco- nomics and hopes to go to graduate school. The Unit- ed States Marine Corps is also a big port of Walt ' s fu- ture. He plans to try it for twenty and then will decide whether or not to make if a career. No doubt you will find Walt somewhere on the rice paddies of Vietnam in the not too distant future. JAMES RICHARD LARICKS Although he will never be another Jim Ryun, Jim, Older than the State of Kansas, " Laricks is a true blue Kansas boy. Leaving his home on the outskirts of Kansas City, Junior come to Navy to continue his scho- lastic excellence, A burning desire to succeed in life and a thirst for knowledge will carry Jim far. Jim ' s enthusiasm to excel has been reflected not only in his academic endeavors, but also on the athletic field in company and battalion sports ond in various extra- curricular activities which included choir, the Out- riggers, and the Scuba Club. His energy and drive omoze his friends as well as his professors. Jim has all the qualities of a fine officer, and will make a noteworthy impression on the Navy and his future ac- quaintances. Six Hundred Seventy-eight -- t. n. PATRICK CHARLES MACKIN Pat came to the Noval Academy from the town of Osage, Iowa, county seat of Mitchell County, the " Turkey Capital of the Worlcj. " As Plebe year passed by, Pot became known as the color Plebe, ' but dur- ing third class year, this name mysteriously changed to the " Coon. " These nicknames were accepted will- ingly by Pat, a fact which exemplified his great sense of humor and his ability to get along with everyone. There were probobly very few individuols at the Acad- emy who were more respected and better liked by his superiors, subordinates, and especiolly his own class- mates, than the Coon. " (sIm WILLIAM FRANCIS McNAMIN Arriving at Navy from the land of newlyweds or neordeods, Bill replaced his Florida sunshine with the heat of Plebe Summer. However, Youngster Cruise enabled him to realize that the true sun loy much fur- ther west. As Naval Architecture Minor, Bill will not at all feel out of place after graduation testing the salty brine from a barnacled bridge. But, this can only be to the Navy s advantage. There are few who doubt thot his high sense of values and devotion to the serv- ice Will produce anything but a dedicated ond conscientious Naval Officer. Certoinly the losting im- pressions and friendships he has mode at the Acade- my will follow him throughout his career. Six Hundred Seventy nine JOHN MONROE MEACHAM Coming to the Naval Academy on the banks of the Severn from Manila on the banks of the Mississippi, Meach " never quite lost his Southern draw I and other well-known attributes of the Arkansas " Cotton Belt " culture- Never known as one who would let classical academics interfere with his education, he excelled in all aspects of midshipman life. In the classroom, on the athletic fields, at sea, and most notably, on liberty, he was known for always giving the most and best that was possible. Several times he has approached the obvious pitfalls of matrimony, but thus far, he has performed superbly m over- coming all of the world ' s conniving females, except ... to remain a standout on the bachelor circuit. The NFO School should look forward to his arrival. GERALD LEE MILLIGAN Jerry came to the Academy fresh from a year in Air Force ROTC at the University of Nebraska, bringing with him. a desire to be airborne, a disdain for the system, " and his dry sense of humor that immediate- ly sets all around him at ease. Never allowing any- thing to disturb him unduly, Jerry will long be re- membered for sleeping in " until the five-minute call Plebe Year. After signing his life away to the Steam Department, Jerry never really let it enslave him, especially on weekends, which he felt were designed for spending away from Navy. " With his ability to work to attain his personal gools, and his outgoing nature, Jerry will be a welcome addition to the Avia- tion arm of the Navy. JAMES ROBERT MAXEY, II Jim IS a Texas boy and claims Dallas as his home After graduating from Turner High School with hon- ors, Jim come directly to the Academy. He spent Plebe Summer as a member of the 4th Company, but was transferred to the thirsty third to compensate for the severe depletion in the Plebe population. Jim is a member of the Spanish Club, French Club, and the Trident Society. His mom interest in sports is squash and the remaining sets hove found him participating in a random assortment of intramural sports. His First Class year he served as wardroom president. Jim is minoring in management and his studies hove foond the Science Department to be a very unpleasant aca- demic experience. Upon graduation, Jim hopes to begin training as a Naval Flight Officer. RICHARD WARREN PALLA Coming from the windy city of Chicago, Rich was al- ready somewhat of a sailor - Great Lakes sailor, that IS. Not being satisfied with that, " R. W. " dropped an- chor in Crabtown one sizzling June day in search of the real " Navy. After a few rough seas, he made it through Plebe year unscathed by either the pop or the Math Department. It didn ' t take him long to discover that dragging beats studying weekends, and thusly he will leave many o broken heart behind him upon graduation. Though sailing was his first love at the Academy, Rich also seemed to en|oy burning the mid- night oil, perhaps to keep his pipe lit. A strong sense of determination, loyalty to his shipmates, and a keen interest in his subordinates will make him a success- ful Naval officer. A true man of the sea. Rich is head- ed for destroyers. DANIEL LEE PIKE Don Pike, known to many as the red-head from De- Queen, Arkansas, came to the Naval Academy in search of a basic engineering education, and will graduate among the top in his class. Danny ' s perse- verance, loyalty, and cheerfulness ore traits which hove introduced him to almost all his classmates. Dan lettered in football and lacrosse his third class year, which IS indicative of his athletic ability. Don will co- coptain the football team in his final yeor on the grid- iron. Danny ' s plans for service selection are uncertain at this time, but a tour at post-graduate school im- mediately following graduation seems a certainty. Whether the earthman, a nickname well-earned by the red-head, goes Corps or Navy Line, he will surely find success following in his footsteps. MICHAEL CHARLES ROBERTS Hailing from Chattanooga, Tennessee, Mike brought with him confidence and humor that gave him the respect of his peers and other finer traits that go into the making of a Naval officer. After graduating from Riverside High School in Chattanooga, he entered Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia. It was there, he mode his decision to become a Naval officer. Through the four years at the Academy, Robie " has developed a reputation as being a great ' swimmer. He IS on annual participant on the swimming sub- squad. Other interests ore various intramural sports, but his greatest interest is exercising well deserved town liberty to the fullest. In fact, one of the locals caught him and hell be serving his time after June Week. Naval Air will surely appreciate this fine new addition to its ranks. Six Hundred Eighty ROBERT STORCK SUGERMEYER With a four year hitch " at Admiral Farragut Acade- my behind him, and his lesson still not leorned, Bob, better known as Shugs, " came to Severn U. set for anything Plebe year could offer. Jay-Bird changed all that. But, after a hectic Plebe year, which on numer- ous occasions appeared to be nearly at an abrupt end, Shugs " was still in there fighting. Three years and five company officers later, he has assumed the role of Company Gadget Maker. Although no wires slash, Bob IS able to complicate any appliance without really changing it. A member of both the Drum and Bugle Corps and the Antighonal Choir, Bob always enjoyed music and the trips that go with making music. Other hobbies varied from photography, to stereos, and tin- kering. Bob ' s willingness to help, his quick humor, and his rotten puns ore sure to help him achieve suc- cess OS an E.D.O. MARK STEVEN TRIPP Mark came to Navy from Minnesota and plunged into the trials of Plebe year. He emerged as a Youngster only to find himself in a striper position. Mark s aca- demic ability has mode him a success across Stribling walk, but his real success is the admiration which he commands from his clossmates. His truthfulness and mild manner coupled with a knack for seeing things OS they are has made him a person to whom we look for leadership and sound advice. An avid sports fan, Mark could be found scrapping with the best on the field or out-cheering the best in the stands. His enthu- siasm and desire to excel in any situation have mode Mark a success here and will continue to do so wher- ever he chooses to go. e ' te SECOND CLASS LEFT TO RIGHT FROM BACK ROW; Bob Hen dershot, Buzz Dereniuk, Jim Bloom, Mike Martin, Mel De mors, Jon Cichucki, Lorry Wroy, Don Curry, Mike Riordon, Mac Oxford, Jock Boniface, Gory Bakken, Mike Miernicki Rick Rychner, Jofin Closs, Paul Simpson, Dave Hacketf Steve Brown, Dick Cooper, Vin Conroy, Stece Martin, Bil Shutt, Barry Griffin, Joel Morgan, Mike Ward, Rollond Wei bley, Pete Baker, Paul Madurski, Bill Carter.

Plebe year provided many experiences and, stories are still told of his many con- frontations with " Willie. " Though academic prowess did not seem to be his strong point Plebe year, many long nights of study have enabled him to weor stars every semester since then. As an athlete, the Battal- ion cross country and Compony basketball ond base- ball teams were blessed with Earl ' s strong competi- tive spirit. After graduation, Earl hopes to go to Nu- clear Power School, and then on to Submarine School. Whichever branch is lucky enough to get Earl will be receiving a fine officer and a gentleman. DENNIS RAYMON DODD Dennis Dodd, also known as Killer " for his boxing endeavours, was one of the most well liked among his classmates. Famous for his love of eating, Denny came to USNA from Torrence, California after spend- ing a year growing fat at UCLA. Other than a string of bad luck with Uncle Larry and his boys during Second class year, Denny ' s life of USNA has been pretty easy. His real burning desire in life, since he arrived, has been to be on honest-to-pete, walking, talking(?) jar-head; and, if luck is anything like it was Second Class year, he shouldn ' t have any trouble at all. It can truly be said that the Academy will never be the same after Denny goes, and we wish him (and the Corps) the best of luck. They ' ll both need it! Six Hundred Eighty-fo WILLIAM EDWARD DOUD JR. Bill came to the Naval Academy from Colorado Springs, Colorado, and since then has excelled in every phase of midshipman life. Invariably on the Su- perintendent s list, and sometimes edging his w oy to the Dean s list, Bill found academics to be of little trouble. After playing Plebe baseball. Bill decided to sv»itch to the intramural circuit where he could al- ways be counted on to pull a victory. Bills main inter- ests are skiing, girls, and the pad; and he hod little problem mastering all of them. His quick sense of humor ond his friendliness will be remembered by all. Upon graduation, Bill will seek his gold wings, and will undoubtedly be one of the outstanding aviators in the Novel Service. RONALD MARK DRESSIN One of the few midshipmen to hold the distinction of being fried for scandalous conduct over leave, Ron was born in El Paso, Texas. He spent most of his school days moving around the country since his fa- ther was a Marine Officer. An ovid sports cor enthus- iast, Ron could often be found cruising around the countryside of Virginia in his TR-3. Ron is a lover of soul music, and, in fact, was in mourning a week after the death of the great Otis Redding. He always insisted on having the best in stereo equipment and in clothes. One of the most loveoble of us all, Ron has occumuloted several nicknames at USNA; among them, Heeb, We|, and Sonny J. (for his greet passing arm). Seriously, we ore oil confident that Ron will become a responsible, sincere, earnest, and dedicated Marine Officer, and will moke us all proud to have served with him. ROBERT ALAN EDMOND Bringing with him an impressive record of track and football statistics from high school. Bob migroted to the Academy from Pueblo, Colorado. Since then he has proven beyond all doubts that no power on earth will destroy his individuolity, nor correct his insanity Whether it was finding your chair in free fall from the third deck, or opening the basement door only to be trampled by the wild Italian on his return from gate liberty, there wos never any question that Ed- mondo wos involved. He proved that work and re- sults could be turned into an inverse relationship by achieving his moth minor and a track N ' with a minimum of difficulty. Pensocolo and o Severno Park sweetheort ore in his sights for post-graduate consid- eration, and, if you re ever in your back yordand get buzzed by o T-34, you ' ll know it was the one and only Big E THOMAS BOULTON FARGO Hailing from sunny Colifornio, Wells " carried on o family tradition when he entered the Acodemy. His fother, class of 39, commanded the Naval bose in Toms home town, Coronado. Never one for the books, he usually monoged the Deon s list with a minimum of effort and was never too busy to help o less fortunate clossmote During his stay, Tom lent his athletic prowess to the company volleyball ond bos- ketboll teams, and the Springtime usually found him across the Severn with the Golf teom. Emerging relo- tively unscathed from Plebe Year, he succeeded In keeping out of the way of the Executive Department until second doss summer when he became o varsity N winner. Well liked and eosygoing. Wells hod his hand in almost everything, from wild parties to cord gomes and scubo dives. His good humor and hard work will take him for, and Navy Air will never be the some. (That s because he ' s going nuclear power.) GERARD MICHAEL FARRELL Jerry came to Conoe U. after serving a yeor with the ROTC at Penn. State. Following the principle What good s wires ond skinny to a Naval Officer? " , Jerry plotted his course through the Bull department, ma- joring in Foreign Relotions. Though this was his field, Jerry was really a frustrated crooner, and many a night his gutterol tone could be heord emanating from the shower. Most of the time Jer could be found in the warm embrace of the pad monster, or listening to his favorite album, Al Jolson s Famous Hits. " Not distinguished othlete, Jer s determination and com- petitive spirit aided him in his career in Novy intromu- rols, not to mention several stints on the sub-squad. These qualities, plus his strong desire to follow through with anything he begins will help him go for as a Novol Officer. CHRISTOPHER JAMES FEAHR Chris, or C. J. as he is known to his friends, come to USNA from Mormon Military Acodemy in Aurora Illi- nois impotient to get more of thot morale and chor- octer building ' discipline under his belt. However, his interests quickly changed to more rewording fields of endeavour such as women, cameras, cars, the pod and |ust having a good time. Perhaps C. J. s most out- standing and memorable trait was his sense of humor. He could always be counted on for a |oke, no motter whot the circumstances. And, not to be for- gotten, were C. J. s many days as o lifetime member of the swimming sub-squad, as well as his superior academic achievements. Upon graduation, Chris plans to travel to Pensocolo and earn his gold, wings, whereupon, if his post performance is any mdicotion of the future, he will become one of the Navy s out- standing oviotors. NEIL CHARLES FINN " The Flyer, " as Neil has come to be known, was head- ed for use when he was diverted to Navy, and ever since has been trying to make the most out of the least. The Budweiser Kid hails from Manhasset, New York, where he spends at least part of every leave in the Knotty Knee. " He lasted a year pole vaulting for the Plebe Track team before switching to company soccer, basketball, and track. Possesmg no great knowledge, Neil was not one to spend unnecessary time pouring over the books. But, when it came to parties, he lived up to his reputation as the beer in- dustries number one patron. Hopefully, graduation will see Neil roaring to Pensacola in his ' Vette for NFO training; but if his eyes don ' t hold out under the pres- sures of the wardroom T.V., he looks forward to a few days with Navy Line. ROBERT GUSTAF HALGREN JR. Bob, or the Swede as he is known to his friends, come to the Academy from Helix High School in LoMassa, California. Throughout his exceptionally colorful ca- reer at Navy, the Swede ' s main interests seemed to be the pad " and wild parties: in that order. His after- noons were usually divided between racing dinghies on the maiestic Severn, and long hours in the invert- ed cockroach ' position, which he made famous. While Bob never appeared to sweat " the academic system, his name was a permanent entry on the Dean ' s List, and he was one to count on for cheerful assistance - anytime. Upon graduation. Bob plans to |oin the ranks of the sewer pipers " on a nuclear submarine, and after that to be elected President. Lotsa ' luck! HARRY ANTHONY HERDRICH JR. Talk about people who don ' t learn their lesson the first time around and you ve described Mickey perfec- tly. After four years of imitation military life at St. John ' s in D. C, one might think he d have enough sense to go to a real college, however, our hero, with the patriotic embers burning in his heart, and an in- tense desire to succeed in his mind, took the decisive step to wander the five miles of Corridors hopelessly seeking the slack which was not to be found. One of the founders of the four year coast button, Harry al- ways seemed to have trouble finding the location of such events as pro-lectures, signal drills, and some- times even P-rades. Nevertheless, the Kid did man- age one notable achievement in the field of foreign diplomatic relations, and plans to marry a dark eyed Cuban when June 3, 1970 brings freedom. ANDREW JOHN LASKA A-Jay, Poland ' s token to the Brigade, migrated to the Academy from England via Argentina and New Brit- ain, Connecticut which he now calls home. Never one for books, Andy could usually be found participating in the nightly bull sessions, reading car mogozines, decorating his room with playmates, or planning a ski trip. On weekends he ' d emerge with his green phan- tom " in search of parties, and at times managed to transport them back to Bancroft Hall. Nevertheless, he managed to keep his head above water in the aca- demic area. Not an intramural enthusiast, Andy spent his afternoons logging around our campus or working up a sweat in the weight room. However, no sport could approach his fanaticism for skiing. A-Jay will be loining the ranks of the tin can men after graduation and hopes to get command of the world. BARRY BARRY LEWIS One of the more intelligent members of the company, Barry came to USNA from Miami, Florida. An avid soiling enthusiast, Barry would drool nightly over Paul Elvstrem ' s Sailing Rules book unless he was out running down a Y.P. as a Varsity Dinghy sailor. Per- haps Barry ' s most memorable trait was his ability to put life into parties (assisted by his dotes who were invariably of the " young set. " ) The older girls were always too slow to catch him; but it could be said they were trying. Undoubtedly, Barry ' s distinctive qualities will continue to make friends for him wher- ever he goes, .be it as a Naval Aviator or as a Sewer Piper. Six Hundred Eighty-six JOHN JAY MANIS Born in o family headed by o Marine Aviator, John has always been pointed in the direction of Annapolis. Leaving Mineral Wells, Texas directly after high school, J. J., as he wos sometimes known, prepored to rise to the rigors of Plebe year. Once acquiring up- perclosshood, ■ he managed to make the most of his time. Counting up his record, John managed to stay in the top half of the doss in academics, and in the top ten percent in demerits, piling up five black Ns ' on the way. Perhaps best known for his way with women, John always had time for a cose of beer, fe- male componionship, and the troditionol wild party. After he turns his ring around, John will point himself toward Pensocolo, and his long awaited desire to be- come a Naval Aviator. The Navy will be getting a fine officer with an extreme desire to succeed. WALTER HENRY NADEAU JR. The author of such memorable statements as " No sir, as in meadow only with an N, ' sir, " Wally came from the backwoods of Old Town, Maine. As the first and only graduate of Old Town High School to grace the shores of the Severn, Wally brought with him o unique humor ond personality. Never known as on enthusiostic studier, he manoged to keep out of the clutches of the Ac. Boord. When he wasn ' t in his room, he could be found trying to wear out the felt of the pool tables or adding to his four year record of most hours spent in front of the tube. It has been said thot he knows every commercial by heart; backwards and forward. With Novy Air ' s wings of gold in his sight, Wally will be a welcome addition, and asset to the Navy DONALD JAY PAHERSON, JR. Don, or Potto " as he is known to those who know him well, came directly to the sunny shares of the Severn from high school in Newark, Ohio. Never a firm believer in the value of burning the midnight oil, Don could often be seen streaking bock from doss for few hard-eorned hours in the rock. Although o fa- vorite victim of the pad monster, " Don ' s name could olways be found on the Superintendents List; and, on occasion, he wore stors. Many afternoons would find Don on Farrogut Field, or on the courts in Dahlgren Hall, and his competitive spirit and outstanding obil- ity constantly made him a mainstay of Company in- tramural teoms. LJpon graduation, Don plans a career in Naval Aviation - preceded by o trip to the altar with a certoin nurse from Boston. Don ' s high stan- dards and pride in his work ossure him a bright ond successful future. Six Hundred Eighty-seven DAVID LESTER SHICKLE Dave came to the Academy as a barefoot lad from the hills of western Virginia. Having been an outstanding football star at James Wood High School in Winches- ter, he proved his love for the game by losing thirty- five pounds and going without food or drink for three months in order to earn his varsity N " in one-fifty football. In the spring, Dave ' s rubber arm would be whipping up victories for the fast pitch Softball team. Between seasons. Dove could be found kicking up a storm in the instruction pool as a member of the varsity sub-squad. During study hour, if not deeply engrossed in a math book, he would be running his own version of the Midshipman Service Facilities, or writing to his OA.O. Dove plans to head down the aisle and then on to Pensacolo after graduation. WALTER FRANCIS SULLIVAN Hailing from the sunshine and sand of Virginia Beach, Sully sacrificed his surfboard, Honda, and long hair to enroll in Canoe U. Being raised in a strong Navy fami- ly, with his father a graduate of forty, Walt had little problem with the troubles and torments of Plebe year. His desire to study was only occasionally inter- rupted by the pad monster, so academics proved to be no problem and he frequently mode the Superintend- ent ' s List. Walt s athletic abilities were divided be- tween coaching and playing for the Company soccer team, and in the defensive bockfield of the light- weight football team in the winter. Leave and week- ends found him heading for home and his O.A.O., who spent an equal amount of time visiting him in Crab- town. With the Navy blood in his system, a keen mind, and a strong desire to succeed, Walt should prove a fine Naval Officer. (The preceeding was a paid political announcement.) PETER VanDUSEN Throughout four years, Pete ' s ob|ective remained to be a career surface line officer. His intellectual inter ests, however, didn t coincide with the academic pro gram, which, except for Bull and his German ma|or, he ignored quite well: until it caught up with hini after six semesters. Unfortunately, he finally hod to face work instead of writing for the Trident articles concerning his dislike for the Trident. He retained his sanity, (at least he thought so) by participating with the Mosqueroders: the free tickets to plays in D. C were the best part. Second class year he was also in the Y.P. squadron trying to qualify as CO. for his first class year which was hard considering all those bouys out there to avoid. And, somehow, during his spore time, he found time for some flute playing in the con- cert bond. The fleet will be benefiting from this dedi coted individual.

After false start ' early Plebe year, he soon showed everyone his real self. He has earned stars and been a rightful member of the Superintendents List every semester. A chemistry major. Chuck worked his way to the fop three percent of the class. The mystery of wires never engulfed this mild mannered mid, and he could always be counted on for academic help. In ath- letic competition. Chuck has been a constant asset to the company, volleyboll, basketball, and softboll teams. After graduation, his plans include Immediate Masters and Nuclear Power School. The Navy will be losing an accomplished midshipman; but gaining a fins Nnval Officer LEIGH MacQUEEN THAELER, JR. Outstanding is the only word that con apply to this individual refugee from Miami Springs, Florida. Al- ways the one to merit comment from inspecting offi- cers (Mr. Thoeler, you ' re on report. ' ) Skip was never known for accomplishing such tedious tasks as brush- ing off, shining brass, and, least of all getting his hair cut. Famed for his many extra-curricular activity trips (those sanctioned by COMDT MIDNINST P1747.5G, and a few less legal ventures), he hod the utmost dif- ficulty in taking the seven mile limit with any serious- ness. After academic parole. Skip will look to the air and ottempt to rebuilt a lagging spirit, and find the positive leadership of which he s heard so much and seen so little. JAMES GILBERT WARE After graduation from high school, Jim entered the Marine Corps, and eventually graduating from NAPS, he commenced his four years at the Naval Academy. Known OS Grunt, ' Jim is the old mon of the Compo- ny. Dedicated to athletics, Jim manages varsity soc- cer, and IS welcome addition to the company foot- boll team. Somehow, the Grunt still finds time for ocodemics and con be found deciphering weapons every night . . every night ... if the tube ' s broken. Making friends is o habit with Jim, and all who come in contact with him respect him. Always willing to help out, he is never afraid to accept the responsibili- ty for a difficult task. June 1970 will bring a double celebration for Jim; shortly after graduation, he plans long awaited wedding with Nancy ond then o reen- try into the Marine Corps this time as o pilot. DONOVAN EARLE WESTERFELD Coming from a Navy family, Westy mode his trek to Chesapeake University of Naval Technology directly out of high school. Finding life beoroble, he attempt- ed to play football for the Little Blue, Big Blue, and one-fiftys, but alwoys seemed to end up sidelined with an injury. Not letting this deter him, he found his place on the Compony teoms. High academic achieve- ment not being his bog, he did manage to stay sat long enough to graduate. His academic endeavours always gave way to the tube or to o friendly gome of chance He will always be remembered for his stroitforwordness and his fine othletic ability. After the hats come down, Westy will be heoding for Pen- socolo with a brick stop in San Diego to pick up o new bride. STEPHEN MURRAY WOOD Steve Wood, or |ust Woody, (or Red Wire, Corrot Top, and other descriptive nomes, some referring to his hair, and some not) as he is known to his friends, come to the Novol Academy from Niontic, Connecti- cut. The son of a red-haired chief, he thought of fol- lowing in his father s footsteps, and attended Subma- rine school; but, after Youngster cruise, he decided to go Navy Air Woody, always an easy going guy, wos well liked by his classmates. He was a fierce competi- tor both in athletics and ocodemics, and he was fa- mous for not having lost minute drops in his Q.P.R.

Six Hundred Nmety-one TIMOTHY BARRON BRACE Timmy, hailing from the capital of the south - Atlan- ta, Georgia, had an outstanding high school career at North Springs. The leadership experience he gained destined him for one of the service academies, and he chose Navy in contrast to his older brother at West Point. Tim has split his extracurricular activity time between 150-pound varsity football and the Popular Music Concert Committee. Tim often finds spore mo- ments, w hen not in the pad, to let his mind wonder and not let grass grow under his feet. A true bachelor at heart, no girl has yet tied his feelings down, though many hove tried. A believer in trying every- thing once, he has tried many things many different times. One of Tim ' s oldest and dearest friends has to be Bacardi. His high-flying ambitions have destined him for a career in naval Aviation. ROBERT N. BURTON, JR. Burls entered the Nova! Academy after completing high school in Columbus, Georgia. Having grown up with the Army, Burts was no stranger to the customs and traditions which at first baffled us all. Well known by the Academic Board for his ability to get the most for the least amount of work, Burts has al- ways managed to stay a few |umps ahead of the ax. His distaste for books is only outdone by his love for football - light-weight football in particular. Having lettered once, Burts is hungry for another shot at Army. Being easygoing, Burts made many friends at the Academy. When he graduates, the Naval Service will surely gam a competent, dedicated officer. NORMAN JOHN CARLEY Norm found his way to the Academy by way of Cen- tral High School in Philadelphia. Academics proved no real problem to Norm, he simply closed his eyes to the sub|ecf and managed to log in as many pad hours as possible. Coming from the city streets and having an Irish temper in addition, the system logical- ly drove him to his favorite sport - boxing, where he could blow off some of that excess steam on the heavy bogs. Norm fought for the Brigade Boxing Team throughout his stay at Novy. Although the " sys- tem " and Norm were not in agreement on all things, he managed to stay out of any ma|or difficulty with the Academic or Executive Departments. Not yet de- cided on his service selection, whichever branch hap- pens to field Norm will gain a true asset because of his competitive spirit and determination. Six Hundred Ninety-two JOHN CALVIN DeJONG John IS a displaced native of Southern California, who came to the Acodemy from high school In Northern Maryland. He found over the years ot Navy that on Ideal location compensated for Morylond weather, however, and he never wondered where to go during free time. At other times the academic department le- vied its toll. The pursuit of physics and moth mode demands that became increasingly difficult to ignore, but John never stopped trying. This academic back- ground and certain thoughts on swimming make him a good prospect for the Silent Service. At Navy, John spent a lot of spare time in the compute r lob frying to learn a foreign language and time in the Antiphonal Choir loft trying to leorn to read music. In oil, John was on asset to the Brigade and he will surely succeed as a first-rate Naval Officer. JACK ALAN DETWEILER Jack come to the Academy from Pennridge High School in Perkosie, Pennsylvania. Big Jock hod a knock for always getting to see the Ac Board. While the rest of the boys played poker and rested up during finals, or Dets tried to figure out what number he would be at the end of each semester. Jock was a real consistent student, because he kept on getting a lower and lower Ac Board number each semester. However, when he got engaged second class year, he seemed to settle down a bit, for he began to amaze the Academic Departments when he set a blistering pace on his way to o 3.0 semester, his highest at any time in his life. Navy football was Jack s one true love while of the Academy. Jack thinks he might hove a future with Navy Air, even though he set o record for getting air sick three consecutive days. JACK ALAN FISHER Though Fish lost his Colifornio-bleoched blond hair and ton, USNA never got to his free spirit. He set many firsts during Plebe year; first to get fried, drag, sleep in, ond secure on Plebe year. Fish marched on the golf course, not Worden Field The Judge " never appreciated his pot shop of various objects dart, boo- merangs, ornate lamps, exotic poiomos, and dead chickens, youngster year While completing a rigorous Foreign Relotions Ma|or, Fish was always on the Su- perintendent s List or Dean s List. With the orrivol of his OAO in January of Second-class year. Fish became five-and-a-holf-doy mid On service selection night. Fish will probably be attracted to the spacious bunks of a P-3 ORION. CHARLES FIGGIS GARRISON Chuck come to Navy from Dorien, Connecticut, where he excelled in swimming during high school. He sworn on the Plebe and Varsity Teams, but loter retired to the slower life of company sports. On the other side. Chuck kept himself busy during study hour with ev- erything but books, and his grades were certainly not hompered by his studying. Weekends sow o lot of dif- ferent action, recorded only in the onnols of The Seven. ■ Chuck ' s fine performance and friendly dispo- sition morked him early as o leoder, and he was well respected as company honor representative for four years. With his strong desire to succeed. Chuck should prove to be o fine officer for the Navy Line. RHODRIC CINA HACKMAN Best remembered for his incessant rocking. Hacks come to the Academy after a year of The School of the Gotor, ' University of Florida. Dispelling any doubts OS to his intentions for coming to Navy, Rod quickly compiled on impressive academic record, and distinguished himself as o leoder in the D. and B. De- spite his hard-earned reputation as the company s most devout studier, he always found time to scope out the east coast female. This pursuit led to the fa- mous (or perhaps infamous) Dead Board, which continued to grow from his first leave up until o fate- ful doy in Pensocola during second doss summer. Al- ways willing to help o friend with academics or con- tribute his not inconsideroble talents to a gome of handball. Rod will find the going easy in whatever branch of the Navy he chooses. ROBERT HENRY HINGSON, JR. Hailing from the magic city of Fort Lauderdale, Flor- dio. Bob has upheld the notorious traditions of that town. There is no bout odoubt it ' that Howdy Doody learned to en|oy Plebe Year storting as a window closer outside on the fourth deck ledge and ending up laying in the snow. As of this writing, the shallow mid has been the leader of the vaudeville circuit al- ways quick with trick. Bob has gone the route of other mids where girls ore concerned, but let it never be said that the obdominoble snowman is pistol whipped. Hinky is on outstanding individual and well liked by oil. With Bob s wit and humor, he should hove an outstanding career in Novel Aviotion. Six Hundred ' Jiner -three IBBP JON ROBERT JOHNSON Jon reported to USNA after leaving the temptations and pleasures of Cornell University, and immediately gained many friends and v os Ne liked by oil who knew him. Jon, already a proven leader, has been consistently on the Dean ' s List demonstrating his aca- demic proficiency. However, he is often called the " dumbest smart person I know. " Jon has been active in intramural sports, excelling in Battalion track and company light-weight football. You could always tell where Jon was by his quick wit and Boston accent. His life- as a midshipman has been fast and furious, not even being slowed down by a ten-mile walk from the Anne Arundel County Jail in the middle of the night during Second Class summer. Wit and a good sense of humor will moke Jon on outstanding person and superior Naval Officer. ALAN WILLIAM KATZ After graduating from Plainfield High School where he lettered in football and track, Al went to the Uni- versity of Connecticut for o year. When he received his appointment through the Naval Reserve quota, he hod to make the tough decision to leave the college life behind. While at the Academy, he was involved in football, Brigade boxing, ond the Weem ' s Creek La- Crosse Club. Other activities included the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Naval Academy Christian Associotion. With the experience gamed from a year at college, Al was able to graduate with a Ma|or in Mechanical Engineering. After graduation, Pensocolo will be his destination, whether it be with the Navy or Marines, and helicopters will be his plane. RAYMOND JON KAUFMAN Coming to the Naval Academy from the great state of the Wolverine, " Kaufs " had the United States Marine Corps written all over his face. Whenever he does something, he does it right. An example is the suc- cessful raid made on a particular Army Officer ' s home in November of 1968. If there was ever a gun expert at Navy, it was Roy, who could be found nightly read ing something about guns. He always gave competi- tors run for their money in sports. You name it; he played it. His skillful dodging will keep him owoy from the Chapel June Week. With his undying pride for the Service and remarkable sense of duty, the Marine Corps will find his talents the stuff that mokes a fine officer. FRANKLIN GARY KING Gary came to Navy after spending two years at Pun- ahou High School, surfing with some studying thrown in for good measure. Plebe year found Gory on the Plebe swimming team and logging in more carry-on than anyone else in his company. Gary ' s academic in- terests leaned toward the Math Department from which he received o ma|or in applied moth. Consistent- ly on the Superintendent ' s List, Gary was known to spend quite a few weekends studying; but he still found time to form o partnership with his roommate, usually referred to as Mason and King, Inc. " Willing to accept almost any opportunity to drag, he was once heard to say. He who will not risk, cannot win " Admiral Rickover is looking forward to wel- coming Gary as one of his boys. WILLIAM JAMES MAGNAN Mags, hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, come to Navy after a highly successful four years at Brophy Prep. Leaving behind a large family. Bill immediately gamed many friends and was well liked by all. His name frequently appearing on the Superintendent ' s List IS indicative of his high academic achievement. In addition, his four years at the Academy have proven him leader. The hallmark of Mags first two years was the girls he left scattered from coast to coast. But while babysitting Plebes second class summer, he ended his playboy career by meeting a local female bank teller. His remaining years revolved around his new girl, spending a lot of his time during the week- ends on lourneys to the Boy Bridge. His high altitude living will hold him in good stead as he travels to Pensocolo upon groduotion. JAMES THOMAS MASON One of Florida ' s favorite (?) sons, Tom adopted quick- ly to the rigors of Academy life. Tom graduated from Largo High School where he played football and chased girls. At the Academy, Tom continued both sports on the mtermural and varsity level respective- ly. Although he usually managed to keep his grades around Superintendent ' s List and even managed to bludgeon a coveted chemistry ma|or from the science department, Tom did not often miss o good night ' s sleep or pass up on opportunity for a weekend foray. Academically, Tom wos extremely efficient; he got ' the most out for the least in. Tom hod a similar, but opposite, agreement with the executive department where he got the least out for the most in, A sharp wit and quick smile will moke Tom a welcome oddi- tion to whichever branch of the service he selects. Six Hundred Ninety-four WALTER FORREST MERRICK, II Uncle Wallopin ' Wally " hails from the backwoods of Tijuana, B. C. Actually, he ' s from a small villa to the north called Chulo Vista, but this is merely a rest sta- tion. Wally was known for having borrowed more and returned less than any ten people in the history of the Academy. Wally is adept at all sports, but he par- ticularly en|oys scuba diving, skiing, surfing and wres- tling during study hour. He also received his numerals in J.V. Soccer. Wally will long be remembered as one of the big stinkers of the Thirty-Fifth Company, and for leoving his head print in the walls of houses from time to time. Wally s talents oil point to one possible service selection. His ability as a diver ond fighter and his adventurous spirit combine to foster on avid desire to become a SEAL ROBERT D. MOORE, JR. After a distinguished high school career in his home town of Los Vegas, Nevada, Bob came to Navy. His mam activities during his stay ot the Academy includ- ed completing Plebe year, supporting his componys intramural teams from the blue trampoline, and graduation. A physics minor. Bob compiled such grades in the science department as to amaze all those who work therein. As author and supporting actor in The Singular Case of the Costly Cookie ' and The Great Laundry Bag Hoox, Bob acquired a taste and a reputation for the caustic brand of humor which ever flowed from his vocol chords. When asked about Navy, he replies. Some guys would complain if you put their thumb in a vice. " KENNETH LAWRENCE NELSON Nels came to Canoe U. from Seattle, Washington Having been captain of his high school golf team, os well OS a one-time foreign exchange student to Mexi- co, he naturally took up golf and completed his ma|or in Spanish at Annapolis. He has kept his nose to the acodemic grindstone, to which his grades attest However, not to be outdone by any of his classmates in the field of social graces, he has gotten his licks in occasionally. Ken likes to testdnve automobiles, noting their reactions to concrete, wood, etc. There is not a sport he does not en|ay and do well in Having been a reserve submariner. Ken plons to return to the sewer-pipe Navy, where no doubt he will prove to be one of our finest Naval Officers. n 5ii( Hundred Nlne fiv WILLIAM PATRICK O ' BRIEN Until Bill came to the Academy, his career was cen- tered around the US. Air Force. But through the years, the presence of his father, a retired Senior Chief in the Navy, and his wonderful mother eventually brought him back to reality - the Navy. Hobort, " or Obie " as he became known throughout the Brigade, parti- cipated in company sports because they provided good atmosphere as well as competition, and still allowed him time for gags and grins. Extracurricular activities included the French Club, the Antiphonal Choir, and his band, the JGs, who provided music for the hops. With the remaining time, Hobart could be found in the Rec-Room shooting straight pool, in the pad sleeping, or out m town on liberty girl-watchmg. Hobort broke up the dulldrum of study hour with his never-ending |okes and sea stories. Looking to the future, a career in the aviation programs. Marine or Navy, IS his first ob|ective upon graduation. OLIVER HAZARD PERRY, III " Beep-squack-garble. " One of the only mids qualified to translate the ham radio lorgon was Hap, " Oliver Hazard Perry, III. A groduote of Princess Anne in Vir- ginia Beach, Virginia, Hop came straight to Annapolis from high school. Hap began his first tour of duty at USNA in much the some manner as his father, Captain Oliver H. Perry, Jr., graduate of the Class of 1944, im- mediately becoming the subject of conversation among the squad leaders. It seems that in his ances- try. Hap IS related to the famous Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry. Hap supported Navy in athletics as a vorsity coxwain for the Navy Crew Team and by par- ticipating in company sports. His minor in wires was aided by his extracurricular activities as vice president of the Amateur Radio Club and various pro|ects deal- ing with electronics of the space age. Hap prefers the nuclear sub-surface Navy but holds Navy Line a close second on service selection night. MARTIN ANDREW SHADDAY, JR. Plebe Year Andy ' s natural engineering bent placed him in the position of keeper of the gouge for the non-Physics orientated youngsters. He devoted many hours of his recreational time to Navy, bending his bock for the lightweight Crew Team. Second Class summer shall stand as the highwater mork of Andy ' s military career at the boat school. Blinded by his two stripes, on acute cose of concentration set in during spotromid, continued through academic year, and caused Andy to become both a too perennial absentee from scheduled recitations and a steody customer of the Sixth Battalion BOOW shack. Undounted, Shad- man will get his letter in Crew, complete a major in mechanical engineering, and sell his soul to the first unfram DD out of Norfolk come June of 1970. Six Hundred Nmety-six RONNIE EUGENE SIRMANS Ronnies hails to us from Tifton, Georgia from whicfi fie brougfit ffie customs and courtesy of ttie Deep Soutfi to USNA. From Tift County Higfi, wliere Ron grociuQted number one In fiis class, he brought his studying capabilities. For instance, during exam week Youngster Year, he read the entire James Bond series and still obtained a 3.06 for the year. Being the chief recruiter of the CSA Navy Air Plan, his room is easy to distinguish because of the six flags of the Stars and Bars of Dixie that are displayed. Among Ron ' s hobbies that are connected with his future Navy career are: girl watching and chasing; gun collecting; and a per- manent membership in the 35th Company wardroom. Whichever bronch of the Navy Ron decides to conquer will gam a great leader. KENNETH DUNCAN SLAGHT Arriving fresh out of Bloom Township High School in Chicago Heights, Illinois, where he excelled in foot- ball. Bear s football career at Novy was quickly stifled by oiling shoulders. He then tried Plebe crew, but soon found it lacked the excitement he longed for; so it was back to football in the form of battalion compe- tition. Surviving the onslaught of the Academic De- partments, Ken managed to live the normol ond sane life of mid until the first annual Ocean City trip to the Seven. Staggering discoveries there led to con- tinued copper mining expeditions into Pennsylvonio. Ken IS well liked by all and has many friends, but the true loves of his life ore pennies, hoovos, and bubble- gum. Although coveting wings of gold, poor eyesight will not keep Ken out of the air. He hopes to fulfill his desire as an NFO in the back seat of a beloved F-4. WILLIAM GLENN SMITH Bill was born in Denver, Colorado, in 1948, and lived there at the base of the Rockies until entering the Academy at the ripe age of 17. Although considering a career in art, on aptitude for math and physics and a marked propensity towards bellicosity prompted Bill to choose the Naval Academy over Yale. Never one to overextend himself in studies. Bill managed to graduate in the top 10 percent of his doss, complet- ing minors in moth and physics. He also put together singularly unspectacular wrestling career at Navy with record 350 stitches. After graduotion Bill looks forward to an adventurous pentad with the military in the Seals or the Morine Corps. DAVID RUSSELL WALKER David Russell Walker wos born on 12 Jan. 48 in the Naval Hospital at Portsmouth, Virginia. During his childhood, moving became a rather common experi- ence, OS his father, o CPO in the Navy, changed billets. Home for him is now Columbia, South Carolina, where his parents, Mr. ond Mrs. William B. Wolker, are now living following retirement of his father. Prior to entrance to USNA, Dave ' s major interest was music. In Pleasanton, California, Dove was given on opportunity to study music while in 6th grade. He took to it like o duck to water; his succeeding years in Junior High and High School were dominated by his pursuance of a degree of proficiency on his trumpet. During this period, he somehow found time to join the U.S. Naval Reserve. In spring of 1966, he received a appointment to USNA through the Novol Reserve. Upon entering USNA, Dave ' s rather narrow field of experience was tremendously expanded to include, besides music; soiling, ffencing, football; and numer- ous other activities here. His minor is applied science, and he hopes to fly. BENJAMIN HARRIS WELCH, III Hailing from Bakersfield, Colifornia, Ben brought with him a keen interest in sports, the outdoors, and girls. Being a California Junior College wrestling champion at 167 pounds, he is looking forword to becoming the best in the East as well. But being a great matman " has in no way tempered his love for the outdoors. His interests lie in hunting, skiing, diving, ond |ust about ' anything else that means being out in the open. Ben must be the only guy who gets claustrophobia from being inside Mother B. ' And Ben has never hod any problems with the ladies. He has o reputation of tok- ing advantage of every opportunity thot comes his woy. This has caused a few problems at times, but he IS still with us. His wit, good humor, ond non-sweat attitude have mode Ben friends with everyone at Novy except for a few members of the executive de- partment. There is no doubt that whichever part of the service gets Ben, and he is hoping that it will be the Navy Seals, will get o great guy and a fine leader. WILLIAM EDWARD ZALES, JR. From the Heort of Dixie, Birmingham, Alabama, Willie has remained a true Rebel while his parents moved from Alabama to Oklahoma to Georgia to Oklahoma. Undoubtedly, his favorite course at USNA was swimming. It meant only free periods for this former captain of Banks High School swim team. At Navy, Willie was a member of the company fieldball team four yeors winter set ond other intramurals spring and foil. Putting many hours into academics kept him barely ahead of the Board. The executive department only caught him once. Second class year he gamed the record for weekends for a single minor offense. A member of the CSA recruiters for aviators, he will continue his work at Pensocolo ofter a June week wedding and six months at Quantico.

Academically, never has so much been accomplished with so little effort. He earned the title " Funny Boy " with his spotromid capers and his role in pep rallies. If there was a Good Deal, " " Goldie " would get it. Stunts that would heave 99.9% of the Brigade on re- striction, if not with a Black N, " were a " piece of cake " to Bill. As for leadership, whether the Group Two Zoo, the 150-pound football team, or a meeting of the sixth wing boys. Bill mode sure things got done. To blame his record on " luck " would discredit one of the best liked midshipmen in the doss. Behind the lough and " devil may core " attitude is a person who performs when the chips ore down. JAMES BUTLER CARTER, JR. J. B. ' hails from Stevensville, Maryland, across the boy; and in spite of this, decided that Navy was his kind of school. His desire to take command sprouted early. He was the only plebe ever to inspect on entire watch squad. Jim ' s academic prowess is clearly de- fined by his consistent ability to remain on the Super- intendent ' s List. Always industrious, he accepted such responsibilities as sports writer for the Log, class poli- cy committee. Lucky Bag rep and other time consum- ing |obs. A man with so many irons in the fire would seem to need on m-out box. Unfortunately, the Greek God wasted his athletic abilities on company sports squads of soccer, lightweights, and Softball. Navy Air will welcome Jim upon graduation and be proud of him. JOSEPH JEFFREY COHEN Joe, originally from evergreen Washington State, en- tered the Academy from Huntsville High School in Alabama. Joe brought a lot of athletic talent to ol ' Canoe U. and was twice a member of the Brigade championship handball team. Joe brought more than athletic ability with him, though, as he was never without stars. Never one to resist the temptations of a girl, J. J. rarely spent his weekends within the walls. Known as the man with the gouge, " it was reported that a proof or statement credited to J. J. Cohen was accepted as intrinsically correct by any of the aca- demic departments. The future holds no limits for our man from the Promised Land. While leaning toward a career in U-boats, Joe will spend a good portion of his first year after graduation rewriting the history of mathematics in post-graduate school. PAUL VERNON DUNCAN Dunes grew up in the shadow of the Air Force Acade- my, but decided he liked his air salty, not thin, so he come to the Severn Shore. After carrying stars Plebe year, he has been hovering near the Superintendent ' s List ever since. Fall seasons saw Paul out with the ] 50 s OS a defensive back, and he spent his winters on the habitually successful company fieldboll teom. Never one to sweat about the system. Dunes was an easygoing type once off the athletic field, and he could be counted on to in|ect some humor into any serious situation. His one true love was the hills of Colorado, and his flome-of-the-moment ' s picture shared his tockboard with Western scenery. Dunes has decided to |oin the Corps as a Marine Aviator, where he will be o welcome addition and an outstanding officer. JAMES LEIGHTON DURHAM Jim come to USNA from Torrytown, New York. His tremendous desire to excel led him to four stripes and a 3.9 + QPR. Bull, " however, was noted not only for his slosh " ability, but, olso, for his support of co-educationol and unheoted dorms. Jim found that Mother Bancroft stifled his love of the outdoors. He could be seen on many a winter ' s night standing in front of his open windows watching the balmy north wind blow snow in on his desk. Many of his room- mates paid homage to Jim s love of nature for the many sick-in-room chits that it bestowed upon them. Jim devoted his athletic talents foil and spring sets to winning letters in 150-pound crew. Jim decided to exchange his racing shell for a submarine at gradua- tion He should be a valuable asset to the nuclear pro- gram. THOMAS JOHN ELLIOTT, JR. The " pile-driver " came to the shores of the Severn from nearby McLean, Virginia. His dad having been o Naval Aviator, Tom has always sought the Wings of Gold. A mid ' s dream, Tom made o 4.0 Youngster year and has worn stars since Plebe year. Tom seldom doted, but has continually waited for that certain blond to walk into his life, Tom finally found a home in the Physics Department, although the pull of the Bull Department was great. The leader of many pile- ons and shower parties, Tom has a great sense of humor. He will always be re membered for howling at the moon, which earned him a free weekend in the hall- Tom has o great deal of ambition and determi- nation. Whatever field he chooses, he will be o fine Christian officer and o credit to the Naval Service. m oltre DOUGLAS FITZGERALD The pride and |oy of Notick, Massachusetts, Fitz spent tils four years at USNA striving to attain excellence in everything he did. Among his many losting deeds, perhaps most remembered, are the cabbage, " the rabbit in heat, " his morol influence on his room- mate, or the close second place in a beer-dnnking contest; but second place was not good enough for him, and his grades were usually high above the magic three-zip. Probably his second most gratifying accomplishment was being the home run chomp of the intramural Softball league; his most gratifying ac- complishment is unprintable. A lifer " in every sense of the word, his future plans will probably include a career of nuclear power, no doubt due to the inspira- tion of his hero, Admiral Rickover. And ofter that . . . maybe retirement to a multi-million dollar clam- digging industry with his brother-in-law. WILLIAM LEE HITCHINGS Never unaccompanied by a femme fatole was Bill Gimp Hitchings. Originally from Phoenix, Bill gave the Navy a good show of what on Arizonion can do. His endeavors were not limited to academics, as we often found him breaking a sweat on the basketball court or baseball diamond. He was not a slash when it come to studies, but it was apparent he was not lacking in charm. To render him a salute on weekends was not uncommon. When not searching for the truth, he was often found seeking happiness in the bog or aiding the angelic Antiphonal Choir. With the excellent background afforded ot USNA, Bill will defi- nitely be an asset to the Naval profession. BENJAMIN LEWIS HOLT, JR. Emerging directly from the glassy surf of Imperial Beach, Colifornio, Ben found himself right at home at the Boat School. Some facets of life ot USNA Ben found cause with. Being extremely resourceful by na- ture and living up to his motto: Midshipman by doy, civilian by night, " Ben soon developed the reputation as the entrepreneur of the Thirty-sixth Company. Other loves for Ben at Navy were; his girl, photogra- phy, encouraging Plebes, his girl, interior decorating, and his girl. It seems Ben will probably best be re- membered for his persistent effort to bring wit and humor to the Plebes ' otherwise dreary lives. He al- ways spoke and acted with the some effervescent self-confidence. Ben will make a dynamic leader and hove the respect.of his men wherever he goes in the service. Seven Hundred One JOHN AKAHEIE KAPOIOLU John came to USNA from the mysterious and enchant- ing islands of Hawaii. Abandoning his outrigger canoe and surfboard, he became an integral part of the Bri- gade. During his first summer, he was affectionately colled Pineapple " and it has stuck with him. No one John has ever come in contact with has been able to resist his magnetic personality. A few of John ' s ac- complishments have been amazing; he has seen four roommates depart USNA, and storting life here as a five striper, he managed to cut that number in half. His more creditable achievements have been in the area of sports. He started for the plebe football team and except for on injury would have gone further. He has also been on several company championship teams and distinguished himself in academics. Upon graduation, besides marriage, the Tin Can Navy will be his bag. THOMAS PATRICK MILNE " Ace " come to USNA from Bethesda, Maryland, com- plete with high ideals about what a midshipman should be like. However, if didn ' t take him long to see the light and drift to the ranks of the dirty old men. After all, who was the only Plebe ever to sleep with his firstie ' ' Always a scholar. Ace dropped a too easy " Aero minor in favor of the more rigorous field of Bull. ' By second class year, he was conducting advanced research on the well-rested put out. " Let it never be said that Ace underrated the importance of athletics. His Plebe year gymnastics exhibitions on the fourth deck ledge were a source of amazement to everyone. Upon graduation. Ace plans to mosey down to Pensocolo where he will be |oined in holy wedlock to Skyhowk. RICHARD STEWARD MOORE Being a Navy Junior, Rick hod lived in many places along the East Coast, After graduating from high school in Newport, Rhode Island, Rick came to the Naval Academy, achieving his life-long goal. He spent most of his time in the afternoons running off excess poundage or catching crabs out on the Severn with the lightweight crew team. Rick ' s other interests ranged from collecting pipes, drooling over sports cars, and having pleasant associations with the mem- bers of the fair sex. Although Rick had o wide and varied range of interests, pad time always received top priority. In the academic world, he was known for his ability to pull things out in the last minute, which always provided excitement during finals. Rick will greatly add to the Navy while serving in the capacity as a dedicated tin-con officer in the " real Navy, " Seven Hundred Two DANIEL JOSEPH MURPHY, JR. Don, a Navy Junior, entered the Noval Academy from high school. While most men entering the Academy found it beneficial to bend with the system, Murph found it more advontogeous to side step the ob- stacles, thus, moking his four yeors on compus " more challenging and interesting. Making up for his size by his physical prowess and forcefulness, Murph was determined not to be outdone by anyone, os evi- denced by his participation in Brigade boxing and 1 50 lb. football. Experiencing a few minor difficulties with academics, Murph soon discovered that a few extro hours in the pad would refresh him enough so as to enable him to eventually come out on top. Murph, by his tact, fairness, and succinctness, earned the respect and friendship of all those who knew him. He will be a valuable asset m his chosen field. THOMAS JOSEPH O ' lEARY Navy Air captured the imagination of our hero from Des Moines, Iowa, and thus he left the security of home to brave the unknown perils of our beloved es- tablishment. Relying on his natural talent as an actor, Leors won the lead in the Masquerader production plebe year. Youngster year retirement found him en- gaged in his favorite pastime, rowing on the Severn, in between workouts on the Blue Trampoline. A de- termination to rival Rip Von Winkle ' s celebrated nap, ' convinced Tom to turn to Company sports the following year. Tom was well known for his frequent pilgrimages to the wardroom for coffee, a ritual which usually required two to three hours. Best known for his humor ond tales of the Midwest, Lears ' will be an outstanding pilot in spite of Second Class summer at Pensocola. JOHN SHERMAN POHl Jock, hailing from Valley Stream, long Island, come to USNA well acclaimed, porticipoting in four varsity sports in high school and many extra-curricular activi- ties. His fine attitude toward the Academy helped Jack to ease through Plebe year. Establishing himself OS fine wrestler on the Plebe team, he decided that he would rather eat than wrestle, and devoted his time in athletics to weightlifting and fieldboll during the remainder of his four years To convince the Exec- utive Department of his fondness for the Acodemy and the system, Jock spent an entire summer on cam- pus Jock s mild mannered ways and outgoing humor won him many friends at USNA. Always on osset to any social function, his dead fish act livened up any party For Jack, the future lies with Navy Air. His ex- cellent aptitude for the service ond dynamic personal- ity insure nothing but success in the future. STANLEY HAROLD SMITH Smitty came to the Novel Academy from the sea- faring town of Houston, Texas, where he was a foot- boll standout at Memorial High School. He put his natural athletic ability to good use as o member of Navy s ISO-pound football team and manoger of an undefeated battalion handball team. Stan excelled off the sports field as well, gaming Dean ' s List honors his first semester here and Superintendents List most semesters thereafter. It was also his privilege to wear the three stripes of a company commander. Stan will always be remembered by his classmates as one with an outgoing personality ond a friendly greeting for everyone. Whatever branch of the service gets him will gain an officer of unquestioned character and in- domitoble loyalty to the Noval profession. ERIK BLAIR THUESON The son of a retired Navy Captain, Thues " come to Canoe U. by way of Newburg, New York, o scant 10 miles from " Hudson High. " A standout athlete in high school, Thues " continued his display of athletic prowess during three seasons on the varsity gridiron, where his shifts between guard, linebacker, and de- fensive end became so numerous that he lost count sometime during 2 c year. His most outstanding trait, aside from versatility, was his tremendous dedication to the gome - a ployer with more guts or determina- tion could not be found onywhere. Not |ust another dumb footboll player, Thues olways kept his marks around 3.0. His relations with the opposite sex brought out the rugged individualist " in him, and never ceased to amaze his classmates. Although his future is undecided, his ever-present smile and his serious determination should stand him in good stead. GLENN PATRICK TIERNEY The Mongoose, hailing from Comorillo, California, come to the Naval Academy with a yeor ' of NROTC ot Oregon State University under his belt. After o rough Plebe year, he mode up his mind to become a Novol Aviator. Electing to concentrate his academic endeav- ors in the field of Aeronautical Engineering, he found it almost too much for him. Many long nights were spent curled up with his books. Pot was a wandering soul and whenever leave rolled around he was off to some new port of call. His othletic skills were fun- neled off into compony sports, and he was a welcome member on monyof the teams. His congeniol person- olity mode him easy to get along with, and he would help onyone he could. Many will remember his stock of backlogged tests around exam time. Pot ' s unfail- ing drive will no doubt net him the wings of o Novol Aviotor. Seven Hundred Three mkd MARC NORRIS WATERMAN Marc (Bug) Waterman had wanted to come to the Naval Academy since childhood- He did not realize it, however, until after a semester at Tutts Universit y and two years in the Marine Corps- Such certainty of purpose and well thought planning have governed Marcs years at USNA as well. With ambitions of be- coming a Marine, frogman, Seal, and Judge Advocate he will probably go Surface Line, While o midship man. Marc has gotten the most possible out of Acade- my life- Very slow to anger, Bug has mode a good friend out of everyone he comes in contact with- Few people have ever heard him soy anything detrimental about another individual and this characteristic will serve him well in future years- Marc is not Navy all the time, however- It will take several establishments in Washington, D- C- a long time to recover from the proof of thiS- CARL EUGENE WEISCOPF Coming from an Army family, Carl ' s ambitions after graduation appeared to be ones of ground pounding and grunting through the mud, but our fearless fight- er was tamed into a member of the Greyhound fleet by 5 ' 1 " beauty. Academically, this Texan was a hard working slash who found fulfillment in Bull and Colonial History. It did our hearts so much good, to see Carl reading those selected books from that fabu- lous department of E. H. and G- which we all hold so dear, Pro|ecting into the future, we can see Carl as on outstonding Christian Naval Officer with on outstand- ing Christian home- We can further see a family of enormous size, say about eighteen kids. Good luck, CaH- NICHOLAS JOSEPH WILLIAMS Nick lived in Youngstown, Ohio, the gong belt oi the Midwest, before he settled down to the quiet life of a mid- More commonly known as Bluto, ' everything he touched turned to rubble- Excelling in football at Ursulme High, he worked and eorned a spot on the Plebe team. Academics never posed much of o prob- lem for Nick, for he always managed to maintain good grades while not losing much sleep. After Plebe year, he concentrated his talents on the fieldboll field and beneath a 250 lb. barbell for the battalion weight lifting team. Nick ' s determination and will was well-known to his classmates, Larry, and the Execu- tive Department. A friendly and outgoing personality have won him many lasting friendships, and Nick ' s dedication and fighting spirit will surely carry him far in the Marine Corps.

As the professional - literory mogazine of the Brigade of Midshipmen. Tri- dent attempted to provide Its readers with material of superior quality designed to be both Interesting and informative. Published entirely by mids, the mogozine provides o direct outlet for those members of the Brigade with [Ournal- Istic, literary, artistic, or photogrophic abilities. Trident Magazine TRIDENT CALENDAR STAFF m Trident Calendar Remember that Dental Quarters oppointment you missed because you didn t put it in your Tri- dent Calendar? It serves you right, the calendar staff designed it so that wouldn ' t happen. Each day, four thousand calendars record the watches we stand, the dates we hove, and, sometimes, even the letters we receive. Eoch Christmas, sev- eral times that number of Midshipmen s relo- tives ond friends receive calendars. What would we give them without the Trident? Seven Hundred Nine Antiphonal Choir The Naval Academy Choirs 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 is marching to Chapel. First to arrive, and lost to leave ore the choirs. The Brigade has three: the Catholic Chapel Choir who sing at the 0830 service, and the Protestant Choir and Antiphonal Choir who sing at the late service. Some of us sleep in Chapel, some of us check out the drags, some of us even look into ourselves. Whatever our pastime, the choirs help create an hour of contemplation for us all. Seven Hundred Ten H Catholic Chapel Choir Protestant Chapel Choir Seven Hundred Eleven i f ft Tt II Glee Club Many Americans come into contact with the Naval Academy in one of two ways - they either watch the Big Blue on TV, or lis- ten to the Glee Club in concert. Traveling more than any other group at the Academy, the Club has appeared before audiences across the nation. They have, and will continue to put the Acade- my ' s best side forward. i Seven Hundred Twelve Drum-n-Bugle Corps This yeor has been the best of the Corps ' history. They hove marched for P-rades, football shows and various other command performances, visiting heads- of-stote, this years Macy ' s Thanksgiving Pogeant, and others. Memorable events include the Vonderbilt Trip, the 15 hours to Chicago, the Drinking Drum- mers ' of Michigan, ond the Cherry Blossoms (Some you win, some you lose, and some get stoned out) and have just had a ball. There is great pride among the Corps members and it should go a long woy in the future. I Seven Hundred Thirteen mk I ■ tiM H BT ' ' Kjol i ■ Brigade Hop Committee While at a hop sometimes during our four years we have all been asked by the pretty young lovely at our side, " Who ' s that guy with the yellow cord on his shoulder? " Or we have won- dered who those guys were that came into Mrs. Ms office, flopped down in a chair, and immediately delved into a conver- sation with her about bands, hurricane lamps, and punch. Those were the guys who always knew who was playing at the hop on Saturday afternoon in Smoke Hall, or who came up and told you to button your blouse and made that young lady put her shoes on. These guys and Mrs. M. were the Brigade Hop Committee. Seven Hundred Fourteen r . 1 m H ' - l Hl ' vr l Hft k l H[HL:.. H Masqueraders Providing dramatic presentations for the entertainment of the Brigade is the main function of the Masqueraders. This group, working with the help of the theatrical ad- visors, selects many of its plays from the best of Broadway. All business and associ- ated activities such as the moke-up gang, publicity and stage work, are handled by those members who are not part of the working cast. Seven Hundred Fifteen Reception Committee The Reception Committee members are privileged and burdened with the responsi- bility of escorting the various athletic teams that visit the Naval Academy. If gives on opportunity to communicate directly with our counterparts ot civilian colleges, and enables us to improve the public relations of the Academy. This gross roots communication allows our visitors to get a closer look at Academy life. r Car Committee You want o 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 |ob of ttie Cor Com- mittee is to moke that debt a little less. Whether you choose MG, Corvette, or whatever, the committee price is probably right. Tromp on those new accelerators. Maybe now you can afford the gasoline. Seven Hundred Sixteen JU. i I 1 msfi Ring Dance Committee Saturday night of June Week is troditionally reserved for tfie Second Class Ring Dance The offoir, preceded by a dinner in its honor, is centered around the LA Areo ond the reflection pool. During the dance the second classman is presented his ring, already christened in the water of the Seven Seos, by his favorite girl. (This is done in true Navy fashion.) - Not at oil o bod ending to a long year. Seven Hundred Seventeen BAC The BAC strives to promote the spirit which is charac- teristic of the AcacJemy. The end of each year finds the members of the new first class rushing to com- plete plans for the coming football season. After foot- ball, which keeps lights burning late in the rooms of BAC reps, the group settles into an easier schedule of occasional smokers, rallies, and stunts whenever big sports weekends " arrive. In other words the BAC works to keep the fires burning under the " spirited 4000. " .rr.M -4 m Mfli Seven Hundred Eighteen 1 I p f gJSMiU Cheerleaders The 69-70 CHEERLEADERS for Navy led by the sole Firstie on the squad, Bert Freeman, focused on a new, radically enthusiastic approach to sound power. Al- though the breaks did not alwoys go for the Big Blue on the football field, the cheerleaders were always there to lead the Brigade in support of the team. Some new cheers odded more voriety, while not eclipsing the popularity of the old favorites, the four N and whisper " cheers The cheerleaders ' innovations ond enthusiasm throughout the season did much to promote their aims which ore summarized by the cheerleoder motto: MAKE SAVAGE THE SPIRIT - MAKE HOARSE THE VOICE Seven Hundred Nineteen Midshipmen Sailing Squadron The Midshipmen Sailing Squadron is one ot the most popular and active sports here at Navy. The Squadron is divided into two divi- sions, one which soils the Luder ' s Yawls three times a week, and engages in races on the weekends. And the other, the Racing division sailing the Class " A " yachts; Severn Star, Jubilee III, Rage, and Morodeo. This latter group has represented the Acade- my in such events as the Annopolis-Newport Race, the Newport- Bermuda Race and last year ' s Transatlantic Race to Cork, Ire- land. J I Seven Hundred Twenty Scuba Club The Scuba Club is in its third active year at USNA. Highhghting this year ' s activities were: a trip to the " Tektite " project at GE in Pennsylvania, the Searovers Convention in Boston, ancJ more dives this year than in the previ- ous two combined. Basic Scuba instructions were offered to all members of the Brigade and faculty in the fall and spring of this yeor. Fifteen new men were qualified as instructors to replace the thirteen graduating, and over two-hundred men took the basic course culminating in an open water dive and party. The YP SQUADRON was organized for the purpose of providing a pro- fessionally oriented ECA to the Brigade. The skills practiced ore basic to be- coming a capable mariner. The YP SQUADRON provides the opportunity to actually use, in a sea going environment, the professional knowledge learned in the clossroom. The Squadron offers the opportunity to leorn and lead, but most important, to enjoy shipboard operations as ' o midshipman. Seven Hundred Twenty-one IP Combined Foreign Language Clubs It may sound like the tower of Babel but its probably |ust a meeting of the Combified Foreign Language Clubs. The CFLC is a combination of the French, Spanish, German, Ital- ian, Portuguese, Russian, and Chinese Clubs. Throughout the year, each individual club sponsors banquets and field trips to embassies and cultural events. In March all the clubs stage the International Ball. At this classic event the CFLC invites girls from the different embassies in Washing- ton - the girls oil speak, (not surprisingly), foreign langua- ges. The Clubs help pro|ect a multilingual image of the Naval Academy. Newman Club I The Newman Club is port of a college wide organization which presents the young Catholic viewpoint on life. Pro- vocative programs which investigate Christian faith inter- est non-Catholics as well as Catholics. The club also spon- sors retreat to Manresso each year. If you ' re not doing anything some Sunday night, stop by. You might en|oy it. Seven Hundred Twenty two fcolte OiWio. km ifeii f Big Brothers The single most important idea behind this organization is that every guy needs a big brother. - What do brothers do? First of all they love kids, and more important kids love them. Then they spend on afternoon throwing a football arourid, vi otching o wrestling match, or going to Mullmeister ' s; nothing particularly spectacular. - Why does a guy do It? Maybe because of the quiet satisfaction involved, or be- cause its nice to be needed. There s only one way to find out. Try it. NACA No motter whot your religious preference the NACA has o program tailored to fit your beliefs. Whether it is o pro- gram by the New Folk Singers, or a talk by Bob Vogel or Senator Mark Hatfield or a discussion concerning the triols of the men of the USS Pueblo, time spent with the NACA is sure to be both enjoyable and instructional. ' i Fellowship of Christian Athletes Combining the rore talents required for athletic prowess with the often rarer devotion to God and Duty, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes hos this year provided much oppreciated as- sistance to the choploins and the chapel services in generol. Working in close relation to the NACA the Fellowship hos offered the opportunity for the brigode to en|oy much needed optionol worship yi The Spiffies Midshipmen Bands There certainly is not a mid in the Brigade who has not had at least one weekend saved (in more ways than one) by the never failing sounds that emit from Smoke Hall. These sounds, of course, are the specialty of the Midshipmen Bands: the Spiffies, the Jay Gees, and the Applied Strength (and the Outriggers whose picture was not available). The Spiffies seem to put out |ust about all kinds of sounds, while the Joy Gees specialize m Motown. Acid rock seems to fit the Outriggers and Applied Strength, but it must be noted that all the bonds ore extremely versatile. The one fact that applies well to all the groups is that they are setting an image - a decent one - But one quite differ- ent from the Little Tin Soldier " routine. Seven Hundred Iwenly-four Applied Strength i! Jay Gees Seven Hundred Twenty five Cannoneers The Cannoneers, composed of two members from eocli class In the Bri- gade, has again supported Big Blue " through another demanding football season under the able leadership of Gun Captain John Hertel and First Class Jim Arnold. Since the gun crew came into existence in 1959 the scor- ing of a Navy TD has become synony- mous with the firing of an authentic 1863 twelve pound Dohlgren boot Howitzer. Color is added to the crew in the form of their uniforms which are replicas of those worn by midshipmen during the Civil War era Goat Keepers Symbol of the fighting spirit of the 4100, Bill the Goat is entrusted to the core of two deserving first doss (in|ured varsity football players). It is their |ob to keep him pointed determmedly m the direction of Navy drives, his shaggy head representing no good for Navy opponents ;oilt Hoi mnilmn tilt 8fi5o piliili ((or ' i ll( Mim Seven Hundred Twenty-si Class Officers This year s doss officers were faced with the problem of dealing with policies ond programs instituted by higher authority but with their name tog on it. It was most diffi- cult at first to determine |ust exoctly where their authority begon and where it ended. They mode the best of the situation, however, working hord on the new class consti- tution, and giving their opinions through the chain of com- mand. In a system which relies heovily on the military chain of command, the class officers provide the only direct link with the class and the fulfillment of its needs Honor Committee Honor is on inseporable part of our lives that must strengthen as we mature into responsible adults. The Bri- gade Honor Committee is on outgrowth of the need to maintain the highest standards of personal integrity within the Brigade, Our honor concept gives the Brigade the re- sponsibility that mokes Annapolis men different. This year s Honor Committee has progressively strengthened our honor system into a more dynamic one. Seven Hund ' ed Twenty-seven 11 This years Log staff is tfie largest one since tfie class of 70 lias been at ttie Academy. Heodeci by Dan Ellison, tfie other staff editors are; J. Young - Business; J. Carter - Features; J. Flanagan - Sports; Bill Smith - Art and ffumor; Brad Foster - Layouts; Terry Dailey - In the Groove " ; Bob Sugormeyer - Dear John ' ; Greg Morris - Photography; and Mike Brands - Worth a thousand words. " The staff managed to produce o 48 poge issue this post yeor, the largest in the lost six years. Log From the first strains of reveille to the quiet minutes of study hour, WRNV furnishes the Brigade with a wide range of music, weather, menus, and sports. Initiating new, progressive programming, voried services, and an increased awareness of the tastes of the Brigade, WRNV helps to bridge the gap between Bancroft Hall and reality. WRNV looks forward to a long ca- reer of being The Voice of the Brigade. " Seven Hundred Twenty-nine Art Printing The Brigade Art and Printing Club reached spirit- ed new highs this year. Over 6000 hand printed posters were produced for varsity games and extracurricular activities. Tecumseh, in addition to his regular wor-point, took on a happy new look for Virginia. Club designs filled the Stadium hill for home games. Ably led by president Tom Ledvina, the club put their designs in Sports Il- lustrated, around the Moon, on cokes, and on each others bocks. all c ,i?,e,e-3 »el .Onxi Seven Hundred Thirty Christmas Card Committee The Chnsfmos Card Committee is one of the many unknown extracurricular activities here at the Acade- my. As a sub-committee of the Trident Society they are responsible for the designing controcting, and distribution of the Christmas Cords and Graduation announcements. At the beginning of each year, com- pany reps ore elected to work under the officers elect- ed the previous December. This year they hove done on exceptional job. Photo Club In on otmosphere charocterized by rigid discipline, formal etiquette and professional endeavor, the Photo Club provided a legal outlet for free expression and ortistic creativity. Barricaded by the eight wing laundry carts, the club members fought their way into the confines of the dimly lit darkroom to emerge with lost weekend s football gome pix, a blurred shot of a roommate, or, with luck, o glossy 8 X 10 photograph of pretty girl. Seven Hurxlred Thirty-one Popular Music Concert In the somewhat monotonous routine we lead around the Campus a change of pace IS needed. This pace change is provided by the Pop Music Committee. Variety and rep- resenting exactly what the Brigade wants are two of the most important goals of this club - two goals at which they succeed remarkably. Despite a ridiculously small budget, they ' ve still managed to get such fine groups as Anthony and the Impe- rials, Tommy James, Dionne Warwick, Johnny Rivers, the Cowsills, Jerry Butler, the Rascals, and the Lettermen. The big emphasis has been on the interest of the Brigade and attempting to keep the Bri- e in some touch with the world. M M Musical Club Show This year the Musical Club again decided to escape from the ordinary pur- suit of a Brigade-wide talent show to present a full-length Broodway musi- cal, Finian ' s Rainbow, " combining the luck of the Irish, some of the talent abundant in the Brigade, and a little outside assistance (and beauty) from the female factions in the Annapolis orea. The show is always a highlight during the early spring. The satisfaction of being port of the Musical Club Show, or just attending o performance, makes it a continuing asset to Academy life. Seven Hundred Thirty-three Iketo vo(9tyi zni Sigma Pi Sigma is on honor Physics society composed of those members of the Brigade who hove shown an active interest in Physics. Membership is offered to those midshipmen who have completed one course in Physics beyond the standard core cur- riculum and who stand in the upper one-third of their class. The purpose of the chap- ter is to promote interest in Physics and to keep members abreast of recent accom- plishments in the field. Prominent men in the Physics field are invited monthly to make presentations to the chapter. k . Seven Hundred Thirty-four L in Varsity " N " Club The Academy ' s Varsity N " Club is composed of the letter winners of the varsity sports. Its membership of about 250 midshipmen makes it one of the Academy s largest ECA ' s. Its individual members moke it one of the most prestigious. It is the club ' s goal to bring better athletes to Navy, and to give varsity athletes an organization through which they can better express themselves both socially and acodemicolly. In general, the club serves the Academy, the midshipmen, and all those who call themselves Navy sports enthusiasts. Public Relations Club Adding behind the scenes ' color to Navy sports is the chief activity of the Public Relations Club. The committee ossists Academy Sports Publicity Director, Bud Tholmon, in all phases of Navy sports, manning the Press Box for the Big Blue, the P.A. system for varsity soccer, lacrosse, 150-lb football and Plebe football, and keeping the statistics for the basketball gomes. It also finds time to give the RAO office support during various June Week activities. Seven Hundred Thirty-five Forensic Society Friends, Romans, Coun- trymen - lend me your ears, " the Forensic Society IS about to speak. They ' re not easy to find, however. They might be at one of the numerous tourna- ments they attend each year, or at on afternoon practice session, or hosting sixty teams at the Naval Academy ' s Invitational De- bate Tournament. Wherev- er they are, they ' ll be busy - And they hove a lot to soy. Foreign Relations Club Maintaining as its principal ob- jectives an understanding of in- ternational relations and a sense of Naval professionalism, the Foreign Relations Club spon- sors presentations by govern- ment, military, and diplomatic leaders. The ultimate in intellec- tual, academic, and often physi- cal freedom is en|oyed by sever- al members who are chosen annually to attend conferences all around the U.S. Others share in opportunities to see foreign policy being formed through visits to government agencies in nearby Washington, D. C. Through techniques such as holding banquets- and presenta- tions, the club offers all a means of understanding foreign policy. Seven Hundred Thirly-six i NAFAC The Naval Academy Foreign Affoirs Conference is an annual gathering of college sfucients from across the country to discuss the problems of a specific geographical area. This year the topic was Europe. Guest speakers addressed the assembly concerning specific problems, but the majority of the conference was based around the table discussions ot which students, with the assistance of experts, debated particular problems. tef Seven Hundred Thirty-seven II Ring Crest Committee The Ring and Crest means more here than at most schools. Sometimes the crest is the only material symbol ot o relation- ship which often spans a continent and usually means months of separation at a time. Sometimes the ring is the symbol of the arrogant ring knockers " but more often of an unexploinable feeling of comradeship. Both ring and crest mark us as Men of Annapolis. The 70 ring and crest were the product of the Ring and Crest Committee, They hove admirably carried on a most hallowed tradition. Juice Gang The flashing light displays, broin storms and productions of the Juice Gang, are a unique form of spirit which few schools have exploited. Whether a spirited Army poster or a Christmas idea shored by all, the Juice Gang has always manoged to capture the mood of the Brigade. I Seven Hundred Thirty-eigtit t. AIAA Where else but in the AIAA (American Insti- tute of Aeronautics and Astronautics) con one participate in o paper airplane contest ond turn right around and work on o two- man glider. The AIAA, Which is composed of approximately one hundred ond fifty air and spoce oriented members, holds month- ly meetings and banquets throughout the year at which selected guests talk on vari- ous topics. Also, during the ocodemic year, two or three field trips are taken to such places OS Cape Kennedy ond Houston Space Center. The AIAA is on its way to the stars. Reef Points The Reef Points Committee is open to oil members of the Bri- gade. The Staff revises, writes, and edits the annual hondbook of the Brigade (or at least the fourth class). Positions for men with business and literary talents ore available, although anyone in- terested in improving the publication is welcome on the staff. The committee s mam objective is to improve and update the handbook which will provide the Plebes ' with the basic knowl- edge to tockle what lies ahead in his chosen career.

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 a lot of the people who helped put us where we ore today come from right here on the Virginia Peninsula. With their help, Newport News has become an important asset to our community, our state and our nation.

That ' s because cot- ton " breathes, " absorbs and evaporates nnoisture, helps keep your body temperature down. Cotton never clings. It ' s never clammy. It ' s the most comfortable way to go through the summer. And cotton is so easy to care for. Wash it in the hottest water (cotton comes out truly clean). Dry it any way you please (cotton isn ' t fussy). Iron it without worry (cotton won ' t melt, discolor or pull at the seams). Even after repeated launderings, cotton things bounce back looking fresh and new, without dinginess or odor buildup. When you shop for cap covers, play it cool . . . insist on 100% cotton ... the fiber you can trust. Class 5000 S— The white cotton cap cloth meeting ail gov- ernment specifications is woven for and converted by SOLEBURY FABRICS DIVISION, Star Route, New Hope, Pennsylvania 18938, and is sold to Uniform Cap Manu- facturers, to be made into the finest white cap covers.

First there ore the vital statistics or blueprint " design specifications for the publications. For any future staffs who like whot was done and wish to copy certain styles (or for those who don ' t care for those styles and wish to ovoid the same) the specifica- tions are: Toylor Publishing Company of Dallas, Texas printed 5100 copies of the 1970 LUCKY BAG. For Volume I the Headlines were set in Melior typeface with matching 10 pt. Melior Body copy and Folios set in 10 pt. Melior. For Volume II the Headlines were set in Futuro Condensed Typeface with matching 10 pt. Futura Book Condensed Body copy and Folios set in 8 pt. Futuro Condensed. Paper chosen for both Volume I and II was 80 lb. Matte Enamel. The covers were designed by the 1970 LUCKY BAG Staff and produced by the Taylor Publishing Company. Slipcases and cover material were by Interloken Bookclothes in contrasting shades of blue. All senior portraits ond formal staff pictures were token by Lorston-Thomos Studios of Newark, New Jersey. Most candid pictures were taken by the Photo Staff with a few much-appreciated shots borrowed from the Navy Photo Lob. All layouts were executed by the 1970 LUCKY BAG Staff. Secondly, the time has come to note those people who hove greatly ossisted the Staff in production of this book and without whose help there would be no publication. Space does not permit the mentioning of all of these friends, but I will note some and hope thot the others feel the fhonks that is so definitely due them. Of course there must be mention of the Staff shown on pages 380-381. I m sure they realize their value to a production of this size. I must also moke note of Taylor Publishing Company ' s rep- resentatives, Henry Wittich and Pat Mahoney. Their expert advice and friendship were invaluable to the whole staff. Also, Dick Slutsker and his associates from Lorston-Thomos proved to be far more helpful thon in o mere professionol light. A special thanks is extended to: Captain Coogan for his understanding in a time of misunderstanding concerning publications at the Novol Academy - And, for being one helluva guy for the Brigade to follow. Lt. Rob Jacques for the wrinkles and premature grey hairs the Staff gave him this year. Steve Coleman for producing almost single-handedly Volume II despite o year long battle with the Acodemic Department (which he very nearly lost). Greg Morris who must be the world s greatest photographer and natural layout man - and the world s worst comedian. And finally to Miss Sandy Johnston, Miss Steffanie Lassetter, Miss Patricia Lilek for Inspiration and Morale. One finol note I feel should be added. For possible future reference for this and other staffs, we would like to provide the reader with o meons for striking bock. Any comments concerning this publication, good, bad, or indifferent, would be sincerely appreciated.
