It seems so long ago now. Can you remember ... a hot, clear June day . . . the unevenness of the winding antique streets . . . the antic ipation . . . And what about the yard? Can you still remember how sweet-smelling and cool it was in the shade beneath the high trees between Bancroft Hall and the Sampson Mahan-Maury complex . . . how the heat from Farragut Field distorted the bay and fieldhouse into shimmering visions . . . how hopelessly immense it seemed? Can you still visualize your squad leaders as they were that day? Can you hear the buzz of hair clippers . . . feel the warm breath of summer ' s breeze on your newly shorn head. Have you jotted it all down and filed it away on mental note cards? The records check-in. The medical check. Box issue. Bag issue. The roommate. Swearing in. Goodbye. Dinner. Welcome. Marking. Stowing. Lights out. Bed. The first day. Do you still have it in your mind? It ' s only four years past now. And next year, five years from now, ten more years from then, what will you remember? What mark did you leave on the other thirteen hundred and ninety-five persons you could have known? How did you affect the Navy and the Naval Academy? What has all of this meant and done to you? What imprint has been left? I Imprint. How long will it last? Any of it? Time will tell, time. We carelessly cast all of our efforts into the boundless sea of time, never looking at them twice. In the cyclic tides they are buffeted, eroded, and eventually discarded far up on the beaches of some distant future. Will you recognize those remnants when you chance upon them? Or will they be just more flotsam, undistinguishable from all the rest? Time will tell. Time. It ' s funny how it slips by, never giving notice of its passage. It seems we ' re always looking ahead, counting the days to every weekend, the next leave. Army, ring dance, graduation, and any other special occasion. It didn ' t start that way. 28 June 1967 wasn ' t just one thousand, four hundred, and forty days away from graduation. It was a special day, unique in its own way, anticipated, savored, and tucked away for future reference. But, somehow, somewhere, sometime along the way the uniqueness wore off and all the days blurred into a featureless sameness. Think now, what do you remember? Do you have the vague impression that you lost something? Try it again. Think of each day as a new and separate experience. It was. rfr mi Jour years together by the bay where Severn joins the tide . . 27 June, 1967 I Dear Mom and Dad, Uncle Bill picked me up at the airport all right and I stayed with him and Aunt Claire last night. Today we went all over Washing- ton, and I saw just about every- thing there was. Somehow it is all very different, and at the same time very much the same, as I imagined it. Quite a change from Weaver, In- diana! We thought that we might find time to go over to Annapolis and have a look around before I have to swear in tomorrow, but there ' s just too much in Washing- ton to do, and we didn ' t finish sight-seeing until late in the after- noon. It seems so strange to be here after all the years of wondering and anticipating, and 1 don ' t mind tell- ing you that I ' m more than a little scared. Tomorrow I ' m going to start an entirely new way of life, and somehow, although it ' s been my dream for as long as I can remem- ber, I ' m still not sure that I ' m ready for it. I know that what I ' m doing is going to bring a certain amount of pain and frustration. I only hope that it will bring some joy and sense of accomplishment. f P! All my love, Terry P.S. Tell Kathy that I ' ll write to her soon. 28 June 1967 Dear Mom and Dad, Well, I made it through the first day. It was all pretty confusing, and so much larger than I had anticipated. Aunt Claire and Uncle Bill brought me over and we went out to lunch at this place called the Harbor House. I had to report by one o ' clock which I managed, but there were a whole lot of guys and we had to wait in line for a while. I left my junk with Uncle Bill except for the stuff they told us to bring. What can I say about it? First they proc- es sed us through this library where they checked our papers and took our money. Then we formed up and marched around to the sickbay. That was pretty much just a quick check. From there we went to get our hair cut. You remember how I had it cut so short in that crew cut? Well they cut it ALL off. All of it! Next they took us back near the library and gave us these cards that told us what company we were in. Then this upper- class took me and some guys in the same group to pick up this issue stuff. There sure was a lot of it and we were running all over with it till they took us up to our rooms. This place is huge! I ' m never going to be able to find my way around here. Anyway, when I got to the room my roommate was there already. His name is John and he used to be an enlisted man. He got here early and so he helped me to start getting this junk unpacked. You have to mark it all and stow it in these lockers. And there ' s a Navy way to do everything so you ' ve got instruction sheets to tell you how to do it. One of my squad leaders came in to check how my stuff fit and he yelled us up one side of the room across the ceiling and down the other side for not bracing up when he came in. Lesson number 1: when- ever an upperclass comes in you brace up and sound off. And pretty soon we start bracing up every where we go and running, they call it chopping, too. The squad leaders are pretty harsh, and they yell a lot, but I guess I ' ll get used to it. I don ' t think I ' m going to have much choice. They got us all out in the hall later on for what they call a continued continued trom ».) , ' ( ' 5 Plebe-ho. Thai ' s when they want lo dump on us all al once or tell us all something. We all had to get back into civilian clothes and go to the swearing in. It was in this big courtyard called Tecumseh Court. First there was a speech by Captain Kinney who ' s the Commandant of Midshipmen and then we were sworn in and there was a speech by Adm. Kaufmann who ' s the Superintendent. After it was over I went and said Goodl ye to Uncle Bill and Aunt Claire. Then there was supper, which I ' ll have to tell you about later, and we came back, had a lecture, got yelled at some more, worked on marking gear and went to bed. All by 10:30. I started this letter too, but didn ' t get much done. t can ' t believe how much there is to learn and what a short time they expect us to do it in. I hope I can do it. I ' ve got to close now. See you in August. Love, Terry P.S. The fire sirens came on in the middle of the night out in Annapolis. They sound like air raid sirens and we couldn ' t figure out what the heck was happening or what to do. It turned out nothing. Oh well! ihe lake Mi to until the outsottii my loiKi come? come lo I It ' s Ihe 2i Life ar( your lett( atOWOo We have rales, leai avy an( I I I 20 July 1967 Dear Kathy, I ' m sorry that I haven ' t written sooner but there just hasn ' t been time. I want to thank you for the good times we had between Graduation and the time I had to leave. That last weekend at the lake was really beautiful. We ' re not sup- posed to be able to see or talk to girls, Drag, until the beginning of Dec. at the Army-Navy game. But I think that we may be able to work it out so that if you come down with my parents in August for Parents Weekend I ' ll be able to see you. You ' d just have to be my sister for the weekend. Except when we go back out to where my folks are staying. ' Do you think you can come? Of course, if you can ' t, I still want you to come to Philadelphia for the game in December. It ' s the 2nd. Life around here is pretty rugged. Thanks for your letters, they seem to help a lot. We get up at 0600 officially, but it ' s usually closer to 0500. We have to get our uniforms ready, memorize rates, learn the newspaper, study stuff about the Navy and get ready for come-around. Come- arounds are the time between reveille and for- mation for morning meal. It starts out with just plain physical exercise for everyone, and then if you ' ve screwed up on something you have to stay and do more exercise. Our wing is like a square and built around a court so we run laps around it. Sometimes, if you ' ve been put on re- port, they ' ve got extra duty which is run outside at 0530. During the day we go to classes of one kind or another. We ' re learning a bit about com- puters and FORTRAN, and also how to sail these boats called knockabouts. Next week we go to the big 44 ' yawls to learn something about them and later to the YP ' s which are 80 ' ships we use for training. We ' ve got this lecture series in the evenings about the Navy and the Naval Academy and we ' re beginning to get some orientation about Academics. We have to make some kind of pre- liminary choice about our minor this summer, but it ' s not binding. Well, that ' s about it for now. I ' ve written this during a free period and now I ' ve got to get ready for intramurals. I ' m playing tennis. Please say " Hi! " to the gang for me and tell them I ' ll see them all at Christmas. Write soon, I miss you. Love, Terry 8 August 1967 Dear Mom and Dad, Wow! The last week or so has been really amazing. First, we saw the change of command for the CNO. Chief of Naval Operations. He ' s the guy who sits on the joint Chiefs of Staff and is in operational command of the whole Navy. It was over in the field house, and there were all kinds of brass there. I ' ve never seen so many Ad- mirals in my life. The Admiral who was retiring was Admiral McDonald. He was relieved by Adm. Moorer. All in all it was pretty impressive. Last week also we were going over to the rifle range. We had to get up real early and eat chow at 0600. Then we went across the river to the Naval Station. In the mornings we shot the M-1 and in the afternoon we shot the .45 caliber pis- tol. It was really hard work, but a lot of fun. In (he evenings we went out on Farragut fioki and had dry run practices which they call snapping in. On the last day we fired for record, and ev- erybody in our company qualified. That ' s really good, ' cause we get more color points for it. I shot high enough to get Expert on both the rifle and the pistol! That means I get two more rib- bons to wear. How about that? We did so good that we even got carry-on over the weekend. Oh yeah, remember how I told you that we were learning to march? Well we ' ve started having P-rades. We ' re not the best, but we ' re pretty close, and that ' s good too, cause they count toward colors too. I got to be platoon command- er too. That means I ' m in charge wherever we go. I ' m pretty proud of it, but it ' s also pretty bad because if we screw up, I ' m the first one who gets static for it. The consolation is that I don ' t get inspected quite as much as the others at for- mation. I ' m really looking forward to seeing you par- ents weekend. Have you heard anything from Kathy? I hope you don ' t mind my inviting her. I really want to show you around when you come down. We ' ve learned all about the Yard and all of the monuments and buildings. It ' s all pretty impressive. I also want you to meet my Squad Leaders. They ' re just outstanding. Rough, yes, but I kinda think that I ' d like to be as . . . well, just like them, in a couple of years. Especially Mr. Badadrio. That ' s about it for now. I ' ll call you on Sunday afternoon. O.K.? How are the kids enjoying vacation? See you soon.

I understand that Danny looked great in his uniform when he came home from Basic training, but don ' t you think that this is just a bit hasty? I mean, he didn ' t even graduate from High School. You didn ' t have to send back my ring, I can ' t have it here anyway. Please reconsider; my invitation for Dec. still stands. Hope to hear from you soon, Terry 31 August 1%7 Dear Mom and Dad, It was great to see you again. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Thanks espe- cially for not mentioning Kathy. Things got pretty hectic around here after you left. I guess they didn ' t want us to have any time to start thinking about the week- end. We had this thing called a snowflake drill. First, we had to bring around all of the clothes that we owned (except both sets of sweat gear, which we were wearing) and then we had to bring all of our locker clips around too. They did this for all three pla- toons in the company which Is over a hun- dred guys. They made us empty all of the stuff in this big humongous five man room over on the other side of the wing, and then they mixed it all up. After that, all of us crowded in, all over the place, and they closed the doors and windows and turned on the hot water in the shower and sink. Then we started doing exercises. They weren ' t very tight about it, and it got to be pretty hilarious when they yelled for every- body to start doing pushups. Have you ever tried to do pushups on someone else ' s back, with two more guys on yours and everybody laughing? To put it bluntly, it was a riot. After it was over we had to sort it all out and put it away before taps. We didn ' t make it. In fact, we were up half the night getting it done. Oh well! We ' ve got town liberty over the Labor Day weekend, and we ' re getting set to move into our Academic year rooms. I ' m still rooming with John, but we ' ve got Bill Smithson in with us. We ' re looking forward to the return of the Brigade with mixed emotions. The going ' s supposed to get pret- ty rough again but I think it ' ll be O.K. Write soon.

School ' s going okay. I ' ve got a 2.66 at midterms. Thanks for all the let- ters. And the chow packages. The Ex-lax chocolate chip cookies worked fine. So did my squad lead- er later! How about that football team! Have you been reading in the paper? Penn State, Syracuse, Michi- gan, etc. I could ' ve cried after the Vanderbilt game. That field goal at- tempt was good! Oh well. This place is really getting up now for Army. It ' s really amazing. I ' ve never seen spirit like this. Pret- ty soon we ' re going to go over the wall! There ' s all kinds of projects and posters going up already. It ' ll be great if we win. When we win! No, so far I don ' t have a date. One of the 2 c tried to set me up with his sister but I politely de- clined. I think I ' ll just go out with some of the guys and maybe stop in at the Brigade Mixer. See you on the tube Terry jJL T I— i 9 4 Dec ember 1967 Hi! We won! Carry on til Christmas! I ' m so happy I could cry. Which is exactly what some of the firsties did. It was their first victory over army too! After was good loo. We got bombed and met some girls and almost missed the bus but had a good time anyway. Now I can ' t wait until Christmas. Please send me a list of stuff to get for presents. I really don ' t know what to get. And, if you can spare it, I could use some extra money too. The monthly insult only goes so far, even with the extra they give us. Well, back to the books. Love, Terry I 15 lanuary 1968 Dear Mom and Dad, Yeah . . . back at Navy Yeah . . . studying for exams Yeah . . . out again soon. Thinking of you. i Terry P.S. That girl Anne I met at Xmas? . . . O.K.! i 5lanuary1%8 ; .or 12 February 1968 Dear Anne, Semester break was great with you. I only wish you didn ' t go to school in Boston. Maybe we can get together at Spring leave. I really liked the Commons. You ' re right, Boston is a beautiful city. Now, it ' s back to the books. My new schedule isn ' t too bad. I ' m overloading one course. And I ' ve got a couple of youngs ter afternoons: no classes. There ' s a lot of stuff going on now, despite the fact that this is the Dark Ages. I went to see Hamlet which was put on by Masqueraders. It was really good. And now we ' re getting ready for Hundredth Night. That ' s when Firsties and Plebes change roles for one night and the 1 c go into double figures until graduation. There ' s also quite a bit of build up to it too which ensures that the firsties give more than they receive. Oh well. It ' s been a time though lately. A whole bunch of second class in our company just got kicked out for pot. I ' ve got to go now and get back to the books. Please write. Love, Terry 20 May l%a Dear Mom and Dad, Guess vvhat I ' m not dead and I haven ' t for- gotten how to write. I am though as usual, some- what lazy about writing. So what ' s new? I had a good time oyer Spring leave. I caught a ride to Boston with a firstie in the company and got to see Anne again. Needless to say, I had a good time. Academics are O.K. except for Chemistry. But I ' ll make it. John ' s a real slash and he ' s giving me a lot of help. So all in all I ' m going into finals pretty well off. For dead week leave I ' m going over to Fred Smyth ' s. Ho lives in Bethesda. Then Anne is coming down for June Week. A whole bunch of us have gone in together on a cottage. I wish you could be here now to see the yard. It ' s very pretty. Everything ' s green and there are lots of flowers around. We got secured last week. We tied up the company commander and took him out to the seawall and into a knock- about. When we threatened to take him out and leave him on the spider buoy he said " Uncle. " The guys in 33 didn ' t make out so well. They al- most got charged with mutiny en masse. Can you believe it? What a zoo! It seems hard to believe that this year is almost over. What an adjustment it ' s been. Soon there ' ll be no more T-fights, no bracing, chopping, or " death alley. " And no plebes. It would be a shame though to see our company unity go along with the pressure. Such, I guess, is life. See you this summer. All my love, Terry ; k 3 June 1968 Dearest Anne, It ' s 2 A.M. so I guess it ' s really 4 June. And this will have to be short since I ' ve got to finish packing and nnoving in the next 3 hours. We de- part for cruise at 6. Thank you. Just thank you for June Week. I had a really great time. And I ' m not really sure that I know what to say beyond that. Please write often. I ' ll see you as soon as cruise is over. In the meantime, think about wearing a pin. My pin. Will you? Enough, for now. There ' s too much to do. I guess this is just one more in that never ending series of Navy " good deals. " Think of me. I ' ll be thinking of you. t KLTT Love, Terry Midshipman 3 c (finally) SUMMER ' 68 Scattereci to the winds tor a cruise and a rest, while back at Mother B another group of bewil- dered faces fill our vacant places. Proof, over- night there are plebes. The last old fashioned youngster cruise. Atlan- tic fleet exercises. Racer Run, San Juan, Gitmo, New Orleans, New York, the Virgin Islands, Viegues and for some unlucky souls a long trip on board an oiler to the South Atlantic. Only stop? Rio ... on the way back. In the Pacific, Pearl Harbor and Sunny California. Finally, the " real Navy. " Firesides, FHaze Grey, Flight Quar- ters, General Quarters, " sweepers, sweepers " and the smell of salt. Sunrise, sunset, watch, and, finally, leave. Leave, time to relax, catch up on old acquaint- ances, make it, and sleep. Sun surf and fun. And in the back of your mind the vague spectre of September. September and school, September and old friends, September and new faces. A re- lief, and a curse. But in any event, back to the routine. YOUNGSTER YEAR A slow start, but then we were new to starting slow. A new Sup and finally some new class- rooms. Air conditioned comfort in Chauvenet and Michaelson . . . when it worked. The Mary- land Avenue moat was gone and they ' d smoothed out the Chisholm Trail. Classes again. Physics, Nav I and Math plus what ever goodies your heart desired. More libs, dragging, and one whole weekend per semester! Fall, football. A disappointing season with wins over Pitt and Georgia Tech only. An end to the Elias years and into the Forzano era. A slow year, not part of plebe indoctrination, not a plebe. Time to think, reflect, and, perhaps, grow restless. Slowly, more and more our ranks were thinned. But there was some excitement in this year. The Class of 70 ' s pep rally . . . instigat- ed and composed mainly of 71.

And the Musical Clubs Show moved into a new format with its sparkling performance of the musical Once Upon A Mattress. In this year Hundredth Night became optional and the Dark Ages were brightened only by Spring. Which brought good weather, exams, an- other weekend, June week and the end of an- other year. Our second, our un-year. k.l COMMENTARY 69 was a quiet year inside the Academy. And while the fishbowl on the Severn is insulated from the world at large it is not isolated. The pol- iticization and turmoil of society could not be hidden from at Navy. 68 was an election year. A year of political as- sasination and suspension of belief in the infalli- bility of the American system . . . Chicago. 69 was the year of the credibility gap, the year of financial crisis in our cities, and of civil tur- moil. In 1969 college youth tired of Vietnam and was embittered by it. The increasing disgust with the Indochina situation was translated into in- creasing dislike and distrust of anything military. Impersonally it was seen in newspaper articles about the bombing of ROTC buildings and the challenge to the viability of officer producing programs in many academic communities. Per- sonally, the estrangement of the military and ci- vilian communities was driven home by talks with turned off friends, contacts with other col- lege students, and a simple uniformed walk into the outside world. In short, 1969 was a year that forced its events and their impact upon and into the Naval Acad- emy, stimulating for some, complicating for many the pursuit, and ramifications of a Naval Career. w iitn 1 1 1 1 ttt lllllilllll mrnwi -rr- JIUL -- .-.-Av,--- It I I -+ , - ' HB M f H t -I LUJ n nsimiiji tt ' Ulltll ' U ' ' 1 N:i.

More than another losing football season, ring dance, and our daily successes and fail- ures, the history of second class year is the history of profound changes in the nature and orientation of the Annapolis experience. It is the record of a static institution forced by the times to become dy- namic and flexible. What were these changes? First, there were changes in the academic program: everyone now pursues a major, course content was upgraded, new and more varied courses were added, and a con- scientious effort was made to make work at the Naval Academy compare favorably with similar work at the best undergraduate institutions in the country. Second, there was a very important change in professional orientation. This change was multifacet- ted and of multiple origins. One of the most important of these origins was the new Commandant of Midshipmen who reported aboard in that year. Rear Admiral, then Captain, Robert Coogan. Admiral Coogan began right away to modernize many of the archaic and sometimes mindless restrictions that were placed upon Midshipmen. A complete revision was made, and subsequently published, of Mid- shipmen Regulations. The changes in privileges and treatment of Midshipmen were accompanied by other changes also. Emphasis was placed on procuring company officers of the highest caliber and with more time at sea. Concurrent with the extension of new priviliges to Mids there was a new and greater expectation that Mids would act in a more responsible manner and take upon themselves the job of running the Brigade. It was in this context that the " Shadow Command " officially appeared (disappeared?). During this year changes were made in two of the summer training programs. The Plebe Indoctrina- tion system was radically altered to eliminate physical punishment, humiliation, and harassment, to enhance professional indoctrination, and to provide opportunities for members of the Brigade to ex- ercise positive Leadership. The format of youngster cruise was also changed. Instead of scattering Youngsters throughout the fleet, the fleet is now brought to them in the " Ship-School " concept. In this manner the entire class was divided between only a few LPDs, LSDs, or LPHs. On the ship they were assigned to divisions officered by Midn 1 C, attended classes and stood indoctrination watches. The first class on these cruises filled the role of an officer counterpart and conducted classes. Changes occured during second class year not only to the institution, but to the people who, in the most basic sense, are that institution. In that year there was an invasion of the Naval Academy by the outside world and a growing political awareness by many Mids who had previously been, at best, anti- pathetic toward all political issues. Even the Academy was caught in the political arena with the sup- pression of the LOG, the chapel suit, and exaggerated newspaper accounts of Midshipmen wearing wigs. Late in that year a book entitled The Brass Factories was published which took to task all of the ser- vice academies. By the time that the book appeared it was hopelessly out of date. It was based upon situations which, for the most part, no lo nger existed, or were being studied for solutions. Most of the major difficulties which it pointed out had been corrected. Perhaps the most fundamental change the Naval Academy has seen became apparent in this violent year. Many Midshipmen began to examine more closely the assumptions and beliefs upon which their motivation toward a Naval career was built. Newer classes, and indeed older classes, were not im- mune to the cynicism and skepticism which appeared in our midst. Anti-militarism, anti-patriotism, and un-ism in general had, in this year, a toe-hold at the Naval Academy. The disillusionment with things in general which first appeared in the civilian community had spread into the military. If the times are more settled now than they were during the 1969-1970 year at USNA, the scene is deceptive; for many of these changes exist today, suppressed beneath a tranquil facade, challenging us yet to cope with them.

Governor of Colorado THE UNITED STATES NAVAL ACADEMY FORRESTAL LECTURE SERIES 1970-1971 In 1970-71 a new lecture series, named after former Secretary of Defense James Forrestall was initiated at the Academy. In its first year the series included evening lectures by some very dis- tinguished guests. The lecture series was varied and enjoyable. However there were some surprises. Dr. Northcote Parkinson for instance, spoke not about his famous law, but about leadership. And sev- eral of the lectures turned out to be mandatory affairs. This was understandable. Who wants to take chances on a Wednesday night, after P-rade, and march on, with McCloud on the Tube and lights off in the Hall about how many mids will show up for a lecture by a distinguished (and politically influential) lecturer. Probably the best received of all lecturers was Capt James Lovell, a USNA graduate, who showed some exciting slides and movies about the Apollo program and made a presentation to the Bri- gade of a banner he had carried to the moon and back with him. The Forrestal Series were not the only lectures during this year however. Various departments sponsored lecturers of their own by distinguished guests on a diverse range of subject matter. Dr. J. Ciardi lectured for the English Dept., Herman Kahn for the Po- litical Scientists, and Lt. Col David Levin, Military Attache, Israeli Embassy, for the History Dept. Many times impromptu lectures occurred when a professor would invite a distinguished guest or specialist from the area to address a special class. In retrospect these lectures were an important asset at USNA. As an adjunct to class work and a chance to broaden horizons they were invaluable. THE TRIDENT SCHOLARS PROGRAM 1971 The Trident St holar program is (icsisni ' t) to [jcrmil cxcepliorial inidshipmen first class pursue indcpt ' ndcnt studios at an advanced level. The program began in 1%3 with six Trident St holars. The class of 1971 graduated twelve Trident Scholars. Each scholar is selected at the end of his second class year after he has submitted a pro- posal for his project. When selected, he is assigned a faculty advisor who is competent in the academic area in which he will work. During first class year the Triilent Scholar is relieved of the majority of his core course load so that he may have more freedom to pursue his project. At various intervals he is required to submit reports of his progress. These reports are given to the Trident Committee, a committee of teaching professors, familiar with indepen- dent research, for review. At the termination of his project the S( holar submits a comprc hensive written report on the nature of his project and his analysis of its results. Ric hard B. Baxter North Tonawanda, New York A Study of a Translating Body in a Finite Rotating Fluid A tluid undergoing solid body rotation ( xhibits a variety of curious and bewildering phenomena. In 1922, G. 1. Taylor discovered the existence of a stag- nant fluid body being pushed ahead of a sphere moving slowly along the axis of rotation. FHis observa- tions were the viscous modification of the ideal flow in which the slug is presumed to become an infi- nitely long cylinder with generators tangent to the sphere. The features observed in a rotating fluid modify the flow field surrounding the sphere, and conse- quently its drag, in numerous ways. Although some theoretical and experimental work has been done concerning this topic, the circumstances under which the appropriate approximation to the flow field is viscous or inviscid are much in question. Ap- paratus of limited axial extent has hampered the in- vestigation in the region of long slugs and high rota- tion rates. In this region there is also question as to the relative importance of viscous, Coriolis, and iner- tial forces. Investigation centered about a transparent cylin- drical container filled with water. Cross qualitative measurements were first obtained with dye injec- tions, followed with precise quantitative data col- lected from hydrogen bubble techniques. Recordings for data reduction were made with photography. More precise measurement techniques were sought to investigate small flow field perturbations which have been overlooked in the past. Limited theoretical work was attempted in the regions in question for comparison with the experimental results. FACULTY ADVISOR Lieutenant Ronald B. Smith USNR Aerospace Engineering Department Charles M. Ccjilier Bdilimore, Maryland A Theoretical Model For the D Center in KBr Much sci( ntifK interest has developed recently around the photo-chemical reactions occuring as a result of irradiation. These processes are known to alter the electrical, optical, and mechanical proper- ties of materials. As space exploration is expanded, radiation damage will become more of a primary concern. A thorough understanding of radiation in- duced effects will become necessary. There are now some tentative models for these photochemical reactions that produce point defects in solids. The purpose of this project was to examine one of these defects, the D center, in great detail. A theoretical model for its formation and structure was proposed. A mechanism for its reorientation in a crystal was also suggested. These models were tested, theoretically, with the aid of the IBM 7094 computer. A quantum mechani- cal calculation was used to establish that the models are consistent with the experimentally known facts about the D center, such as matching its absorption spectrum and reorientation energy. Once a firm understanding of this point defect was established, the optical and thermal properties asso- ciated with it could be predicted. The predictions of this project provide a valuable starting point for fur- ther research in methods of control of this point de- fect or in prac tical uses of the defect. FACULTY ADVISOR Assistant Professor Donald |. Treacy Science Department WILLIAM A. Emslie Fort Collins, Colorado The Application of Integrated Circuits To Electronic Measurement One of the most sophisticated methods of identifi- cation of ships at sea is that of Acoustical Signature Analysis. Positive identification of a vessel can be achieved from its characteristic noise spectrum. It is possible to compare noise spectrum samples with those of known ships and classify these samples by ship type. This type of analysis is currently being done at the Naval Ship Research and Development Center in An- napolis, Maryland. At the Annapolis center the analy- sis is done with a device known as the Third Octave Digital Analyzer or TODA. The TODA in use has certain disadvantages which limit its effectiveness. First, all analysis must be done on location because the TODA employs vacuum tube electronics and oc- cupies over 200 cubic feet. Second, the electro-me- chanical portions of the system are rather unreliable and slow. Since it would be desirable to have an acoustical identification system on board our ships and subma- rines a much smaller and more reliable model de- signed specifically for this purpose is needed. Mid- shipman Emslie designed and constructed represent- ative portions of a TODA using integrated circuits to make possible shipboard adaptation. FACULTY ADVISOR Assistant Professor Richard L. Martin Electrical Engineering James B. Gallemore Watervliet, N. Y. An Investigation Of The Nucleation Problem In Acoustic Cavitation Acoustic cavitation is the rapid growth and violent collapse of cavities in a liquid due to pressure varia- tions of a superimposed sound field. Theoretically, negative pressures in the sound field must be on the order of the tensile strength of the liquid in order to cause cavitation. Experimental evidence has not shown this to be true. Cavitation is normally pro- duced at sound pressure amplitudes which are an order of magnitude less than the tensile strength of the liquid. Researchers have attributed this to the presence of small cavities, called microbbles, in liq- uids which are seemingly homogeneous. The actual mechanics of the formation and subsequent statiliza- tion o f these cavitation nuclei are not completely un- derstood. This project was a study of the nucleation phase of cavitation. Several experiments were devised which helped determine the validity of current theories of nucleation and stabilization. Some of these experi- ments were: superposition of an electrical field on the sound field; selective filtration of the liquid; irra- diation by high energy particles; and the trapping of isolated liquid droplets in another liquid with a su- perimposed sound field. In each case, the cavitation cell consisted of a cylindrical glass container and a small ceramic transducer. This research was intended to help answer some questions about cavitation, and in so doing, yield re- sults that are of interest both to the scientific com- munity and to the Navy. FACULTY ADVISOR Assistant Professor Lawrence A. Crum Physics Department mm fBb X William L. Hatcher III Kettering, Ohio An Investigation of Digital Filtering Techniques Important acJvances in signal processing have recently been made through the use of the digital computer. These advan- ces are based on the mathe- matical techniques by which a signal can be fiiterec] in sampled form and on new de- velopments in electronic cir- cuitry which permit a large number of fast and reliable cir- cuits to be packaged in a small volume. The new signal proc- essing capability will offer sig- nificant advantages in certain signal detection and filtering problems. Midshipman Hatcher stud- ied the application of these new techniques to the Navy systems which seem best suit- ed to them and estimated the resulting improvement in per- formance. FACULTY ADVISOR Assistant Professor O. N. Rask Weapons and Systems Engineering Department Alfred Rector Hupp, |r. Marshall, Miss ouri The Technique of Communist Negotiation The problems of the confer- ences at Tehran, Yalta and Potsdam; the Truce negotia- tions at Panmunjom; the talks over Indochina and the search for an alternative to the nucle- ar arms race; the subject of the SALT talks at Vienna; all point to the paramount need for knowledge of the negotiating techniques employed by our potential opponents. The gen- eral experiences of the military in concfucting lend-lease with the Soviet Union in World War II and the specific involvement of th( Navy, through the per- son of Vice Admiral C. Turner Joy, in negotiating a truce in the Korean conflict; as well as the potential of the SALT con- ferences; show the Navy ' s re- quirement for expertise in both the manner and expected results of such negotiations. To examine the techniques involved, Midshipman Hupp analyzed, in depth. Commu- nist negotiations in the period 1933-1954 with primary em- phasis on the Soviet Union. The concentration of the proj- ect was on the forms and pat- terns of negotiation by which the issues were raised, consid- ered, and sometimes, resolved. FACULTY ADVISOR Professor John W. Huston l-listory Department Forester William Isen, Jr. Brookfield, New Hampshire An Input-Output Analysis Of The United States Navy The input-output method of interindustry economic analy- sis has recently gained popu- larity as a tool for analyzing the interindustry relations of economies of all sizes and types, including the Armed Forces. This study concerned itself with assembling a body of the- oretical and practical informa- tion to be used as a guideline for constructing input-output models, and actually con- structing an input-output model of the Unitec] States Navy. FACULTY ADVISOR Assistant Professor James J, McCusker Economics Department Michael John Kehoe Albion, Michigan The Use of Transition Radiation for the Detection of Highly Relativistic Charge Particles Radiation Emitted by charged particles upon passing from one medium to another with different dielectric properties is called transition radiation. Transition radiation was predicted by Ginzburg and Frank and has been ob- served for accelerator pro- duced particles. A look at the transition radiation spectrum shows one that for increasing charged particle " gamma, " the ratio of the particle ' s total en- ergy to its rest energy, the ra- diation intensity and maxi- mum energy both increase. Transition radiation is im- portant because it provides a relatively simple means of measuring the " gamma " of a highly relativistic charged par- ticle, since the amount of tran- sition radiation generated by the charged particle when passing from, say, air into metal, is proportional to th e " gamma " of the particle. Since other methods of determining " gamma " for very high energy particles are extremely diffi- cult, the techniques of transi- tion radiation measurement could have far reaching appli- cations in cosmic ray and high energy particle physics. dlffl- Midshipman Kehoe de- signed, constructed, and de- termined the operational pa- rameters for a transition radia- tion detector for use in cosmic ray physics. FACULTY ADVISOR Assistant Professor Robert N. Shelly Physics Department Michael J. McDanold Dearborn Heights, Mich. The Establishment of a Set of Local Photometric Standards Photometry is the branch of astronomy dealing with the measurement of the intensities of starlight. Knowledge of the apparent magnitudes of stars is extremely useful. The apparent magnitude, along with the ab- solute intrinsic magnitude of a star, can be used to determine the distance to the star. Infor- mation concerning the dis- tances to various stars is an im- portant tool in cosmology. Before these magnitude measurements can be widely used, however, there must be a standard system in which to express these magnitudes. With such a system, data com- piled by various astronomers can be compared and com- piled to give a more complete and accurate picture of the local sky. Such a system was devised by Professor H. L. Johnson of the Flagstaff Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona. Thus, all that is necessary is for each individ- ual astronomer to find the transformation necessary to convert his instrumental mag- nitude into the standard sys- tem. (This transformation is unique to each set of instru- ments.) It should be noted that the use of the same types of instruments (photomultipliers, filters, etc.) as Johnson used will make the finding of this transformation less difficult. It was the purpose of this project to find this transforma- tion for the telescope and set of instruments at the Naval Academy. This equipment is of the type used by Johnson. The resulting transformation was used to make further measure- ments and (ompile data for comparison with the data ob- tained by other astronomers. FACULTY ADVISOR Professor Graham D. Gutsche Physics Department Steven C. Spancake Haven, Pennsylvania The Synthesis of Pyrimidines as Potential Cardiovascular Drug and as Characterization Agents Some of the most important ailments confronting mankind are those called cardiovascular ailments, ie., ailments related to the heart and circulatory system. These ailments killed more people (1,021,380) in the United States in 1968 than all other causes combined, and this figure does not include the large number of victims made invalid and less useful to themselves and society. Compounds containing the pyrimidine nucleus, also pres- ent in DNA, have been shown useful in treatment of some of these ailments. At the same time, compounds containing a related saturated five-mem- bered heterocyclic ring, imid- azolines, have been shown to be potentially useful as charac- terization agents for al- dehydes. It would therefore be of interest to prepare related saturated six-membered rings, pyrimidines, which might be useful as characterizing agents for aldehydes as well as having potential physiological bene- fits as cardiovascular agents. Midshipman Spancake pre- pared a variety of these com- pounds for testing for these two purposes. FACULTY ADVISOR Dr. Samuel Massie Chemistry Department William Thomas Stevens Arlington, Virginia Excitation of Oxygen by Electrons The experimental determi- nation of atomic and molecu- lar excitation functions of oxi- dizing gases by means of an electron beam instead of col- liding molecular beam tech- niques would provide a sim- pler method in terms of both equipment and analysis. Midshipman Stevens investi- gated the feasibility of produc- ing an electron beam in an at- mosphere of oxygen by the electric breakdown of the gas. He studied currents attainable and beam focusing capabilities at various pressures. FACULTY ADVISOR Associate Professor Frank L. Miller Physics Department Daniel L. Whitford Spring Valley, Ohio Investigation and Comparison of Water and Transpiration Cooling of Plasma Generators In a number of technologies a need exists for extremely high enthalpy gas streams or plasmas. These plasma streams are usually obtained by pass- ing a gas through a continuous D.C. electric arc. In this way, temperatures above 10 x 10 °R are generated. It is this same high temperature that causes mechanical difficulty with the plasma generator and the plasma confining structure. Presently all components, par- ticularly electrodes and con- strictors, are provided with water cooling. This cooling, however, represents large power losses. An attractive al- ternative is transpiration cool- ing where the critical structu- ral components are made from a porous material and the working gas is introduced into the arc region through these porous components, cooling them in passing. There are a number of ana- lytical models that attempt to describe the heating process in an arc heater. However, de- pending on assumptions made, these models are valid in only a few cases or regions. Fewer still are the analytical models that have been corre- lated with experimental re- sults. Experimental work on transpiration cooled units is virtually non-existent. This investigation consid- ered the relative merits, char- acteristics, and performance envelopes of water and tran- spiration-cooled arc heaters. The project first examined the various analytical models and their limits of application. Next, an existing water-cooled plasma generator was instru- mented and its performance evaluated by enthalpy probe techniques. While keeping the geometry constant, the critical components, i.e., electrodes and constrictor, were then re- placed by porous counterparts. The gas was then introduced through these components. Again, the performance enve- lope was obtained and com- pared with a simplified analyti- cal study. The characteristics of the two units were then compared as to performance, power losses, and efficiencies. FACULTY ADVISOR Assistant Professor J. Sladky, Jr. Mechanical Engineering Department NAFAC " The Strategic Balance of Power in the 1970 ' s " served as the topic for the 1971 NAFAC, which stands for Naval Academy For- eign Affairs Conference, convened for the eleventh time on 19 April 1971. Students from more than one hundred colleges and universities joined with midshipmen in discussing specific area as- pects of the broad central topic. The following world geography was represented by round ta- bles: Europe, the Middle East, the South Asian Peripheral, the Pa- cific Area, and Latin America. Here in the relaxed atmosphere of Sampson Hall, the- delegates analyzed the strategic balance of power as it applied to their area. Each round table received direc- tion from a State Department or faculty moderator. At times the students appealed to the moderator for equal time while at other times the moderator was forced to intervene in vigorous student debate. Nevertheless, the round tables were the heart of the con- ference. km, 1 In an effort to fuel the fires of round table discussion, several major speakers, panels, and ambassadors addressed open forums. Dr. Thomas C. Scheliing of the Center for International Affairs, Harvard University, delivered the key note address. Dr. Scheliing suggested that nuclear bombs have gone out of fashion as a popu- lar issue, while at the same time he emphasized that destructive potential of these bombs has been increasing. The subject of lag- ging technology was also examined during the keynote speech. The Honorable John S. Foster, jr.. Director of Defense Research and Engineering, Department of Defense, continued with the subject of lagging technology as he delivered the second major speech following the Wednesday banquet. Dr. Foster ' s plea for in- creased funding of military research and development generated sharp criticism from several of the students. In fact, a general reso- lution denouncing the need for increased military capability drew delegate support at the final plenary session. The panel discussions also engaged controversial issues. On Monday night. Ambassador Parker T. Hart, President, The Middle East Institute; Major General Eliahu Zeira, Armed Forces Attache, Embassy of Israel; and Dr. Alvin Cottrell, Director, Center of Strate- gic Studies, tackled " The Middle East and the Balance of Power. " Delegate inquiry into United States Foreign Policy in the Middle East challenged the speakers on a broad front. The second panel entitled " Some Approaches to the Contempo- rary Balance of World Power " combined the skills of the Honora- ble John Ryan, Embassy of Australia; Vice Admiral John T. Hay- ward, USN (Ret.); the Honorable William I. Cargo, Department of State; and Dr. John Newhouse, Brookings Institute. The result was an interesting, far reaching discussion. The presence of eight foreign embassy representatives added to the expertise of the conference. With ministers and ambassadors from India, Mexico, Italy, Peru, Federal Republic of Germany, Japan, Turkey, and the United Arab Republic, the delegates were able to gain primary source material for the round table sessions. However, NAFAC was not all flamboyant speeches. Midshipmen worked for months in preparing for the four-day conference. Wayne Peters, the Midshipman Director, and Toby Vickery, the Assistant Director, were assisted by the following committee chairmen: Pat Fayle, Dan Bogduvich, Dale Petersen, Jerry Wong, Keith Novin, Rick Walsh, Ralph Earhart, Al Eraser, Mike Joyner, and Jeff Millinette. The 1971 NAFAC ended on April 22, 1971. The opin- ion of the delegates and the midshipmen was that the conference had been a unanimous success. ,o5plieieot balance of .iveddifff- con- DRUG ABUSE The United States Naval Academy has a drug abuse problem of serious dimen- sions. It is a problem which is hidden, misunderstood, and coped with only in the most superficial manner. The Drug Problem is usually discussed only with two im- plicit assumptions which critically limit the scope of any possible derived bene- fits. The first of these assumptions is that The Drug Problem is limited to the use abuse of narcotics, hallucinogens, marihuana, amphetamines, and barbitu- rates: dope. The second assumption is that the origins of The Drug Problem can be found in the Youth Culture (whatever that is). Both of these are inaccurate as- sumptions and tend to impede understanding and elimination of drug abuse. Drug abuse today is a societal problem. Abuse can be construed to mean exces- sive consumption or non prescribed use. Use of a drug which is prescribed but which creates a hazzard when coupled with other drugs or activity may also be considered abuse of a drug. Drug abuse is learned at home, long before a young man considers a Naval career, let alone reports to the Academy. It is learned first from parents, then from societal conditions such as television and radio, and, fi- ] ABUS[ )i senous dimen- iwilhoolyin )nly with two im- lie derived bene- mited to the hes, and barbito- ot drug abuse, .(jiomeanexces- ,5 prescribed mtv may also gbeioreayoi It is ind radio, and, nally, from friends. Drugs, he is told, may be used to mold all of the pa- rameters of daily experiernce, not just to combat sickness. Use of dope is not the most serious form of drug abuse at the Naval Academy today. The crux of the problem lies, rather, with the abuse of common drugs, readily available. In contrast to the amount of liquor that the average midshipman con- sumes, the use of marihuana at the Naval Academy is insignificant. Nicotine, Darvon, aspirin. Codeine cough syrup, No-Doz, and Contact are all commonly abused. It can be conservatively estimated, for exam- pie, that one out of every twenty midshipmen will have a drinking problem by the time he graduates. And these midshipmen, along with those who have only tendencies in this di- rection, can be expected to increase their abuse upon graduation by the greater accessabil- ity to liquor and the high rates at which it is consumed in the Naval community. Other methods of abuse are to save drugs such as Darvon or Codeine cough syrup and use them at a later time, possibly in conjunction with alcohol, to produce a high. One way to alleviate the abuse of Navy supplied drugs is to more severely control their use by issuing only single dosages and requiring that they be taken in sickbay. A solution such as this would be physically feasible, but not entirely effective. It would not, for instance, stop someone who really wanted a drug from obtaining it elsewhere, nor would it remove the temptation to experiment when " Big Brother " wasn ' t watching. It would seem, when one considers the inherent seriousness of the problem that drug abuse presents, that education problems would be called for. Such programs would ex- plore the nature of drug abuse, examples of abuse, and the consequences of abuse. They would have to be relevant to drug abuse at the Naval Academy, accurate, and well pres- ented. At present, those education programs which are presented to midshipmen deal al- most exclusively with the use abuse of dope. The Naval Academy has a need for good drug education.

Z AND ME In the summer of 1970 the Navy received a severe jolt when a relatively junior Admiral, Vice Admiral Elmo Zumwalt, was select- ed over 33 senior admirals to become Chief of Naval Operations. Admiral Zomwalt replaced Admiral Thomas Moorer who was named Chairman of the joint Chiefs of Staff. At forty-nine, Admiral Zumwalt is the youngest officer to become CNO. His previous job was commander of US Naval Forces in Vietnam. Since his appointment Admiral Zumwalt has aggressively at- tacked the Navy ' s most pressing difficulties: personnel retention and maintenance of the Navy ' s ability to provide for the security of the U.S. His approach to personnel retention has emphasized the personal approach. Admiral Zumwalt has met with thousands of Navy personnel to talk, listen, and answer questions. He has set up study groups composed of members of sub-groups within the Naval community (including wives) and listened to their problems and suggestions. After these suggestions are aired the CNO circulates letters to certain commands soliciting their reactions. From these reactions and the original comments are synthesized the Z-grams. Z-grams are messages from the CNO directing the actions which change many of the irritating, mindless, and frustrating practices the Navy has long cultivated. Some of these changes have been: So-called " hard rock " music clubs have been set up for junior officers at five bases and more are planned. The fabled waiting line of service life should not be longer than 15 minutes. Enlisted men may wear civilian clothes on all bases. Leaders of the local Navy wives ' club will have direct access for information and complaints to base commanders. S ailors will stand watch in expanded sections so that more weekends are free, and ships berthed together can pool the men needed to stand watch. Ships operating near their home ports will limit routine training cruises to between Monday and Friday. junior officers will be encouraged to hold ship maneuvering competitions, a project which Zumwalt says hasn ' t been named but which some old salts call a " bash-in. " Liquor is now allowed in barracks where there are separate rooms, and beer vending machines in other types. Admiral Zum- walt also has expanded leave policies, set up charter flights for Navy dependents, ordered advisory committees to oversee PXs and commissaries, directed check-cashing facilities to stay open later and cash larger checks. He also says he is intent on opening up ratings other than stew- ard for the Navy ' s 12,000 Filipinos and has directed attention to the resolution of problems encountered by Black officers, enlisted men, and their families within the Naval community. As noted. Admiral Zumwalt has not confined his attention to personnel problems. He has directed the modernization of the was r than stew- Ljttenliontoth; pre enliste ' ' Navy and resisted efforts to make the Navy less than effective in carrying out its missions. He has placed emphasis upon ULMS, de- velopment of ship to ship missiles, and improvement of ASW tech- niques. Some of Admiral Zumwalt ' s ideas include, reduction of carrier forces and combination of their ASW-attack roles, devel- opment of new ships rather than modernization of old types, and increased emphasis on electronic warfare methods. At the Naval Academy, many of the changes that Admiral Zum- walt has instituted have not been implemented. The rationale widely used to justify this situation is that USNA is " a training command " and therefor the Z-grams don ' t apply. However, there are some logical inconsistencies in this approach. For instance, a training command is that part of the Naval establishment which is responsible for the socialization of the person, be he boot or plebe, into the military community. If, however, there is a great discrepancy between what the person being socialized experi- ences and identifies with the Navy and what the Navy really is like, his chances of becoming a productive member of the Naval com- munity are greatly diminished. Especially if his initial impressions of the Navy are poor. The distinction between " Training commands " and the " real Navy " also smacks of implicit philosophical condescension. The training commands don ' t change because the Navy has found the tried and true road to good grooming, standards of appearance, discipline, and right thinking. All of which is duly impressed upon the recruit or plebe in his first weeks. Changes in policies there- fore are made only for those who have been exposed to " the Navy way, " and only because the Navy is forced to by the pressure of modernization and civilian life styles. No one can predict the outcome of Admiral Zumwalts ' changes. We can only wait and watch. And hope that in the long run the Navy advances beyond the superficialities imposed by present ex- igencies. HONOR The Honor Concept ot the Brigade has become, in the past tew years, exactly what its name implies, a concept, and not a concrete, practised reality. In its original formulation the Concept was supposed to increase the number of options available to an individual who was confronted with possible honor violation. This increase in options placed an extra burden of responsibility on the shoulder of the per- son who observed the violation and hopefully made him a more integral and functioning part of the system by allowing him to exercise these options rather than just pass the case on to the Honor Board. The Concept also was based upon a recognition of the fact that Honor is not always black and white, but sometimes influenced by mitigating factors which color things some shade of grey. Again, the ra- tionale in the Concept was that the individual apprehending a possible Honor violation should exer- cise his individual responsil ility in deciding whether or not there are mitigating circumstances in- volved and in interpreting these circumstances with respect to his situation. The Honor Concept was fine in theory. In fact, and in practice, the present System has broken down. By including, for instance, an option of doing nothing, the present Honor System gives the in- dividual a very easy way to escape the responsibility and involvement inherent in the System by ignor- ing the existence of Honor violations. This leads to the degeneration of the System. When the System places the responsibility for interpreting the shades of grey upon the shoulders of the individual it makes the implicit assumption that all men see the same shades of grey in the same situation. We know, from practical experience that this is not so. It also places the individual in the position of hav- ing to try the case in his own mind before he decided how to handle it. This is unfair to both parties involved, and if carried to its logical (albeit extreme) conlusion would lead to the abolition of the Honor Board or any review system. In short, it is the contention of this author that the Honor System of the Brigade of Midshipmen is in a critical situation, and it is my further contention that this is ob- vious to anyone who cares to sit down and critically and honestly evaluate the situation. What then is to be done? First, it must be decided whether or not we wish to continue with any Honor System at all. The answer to this is " yes " on pragmatic grounds if none other. In the Navy, one must be able to rely upon others. Honor is what assures this. So, we have decided that we want an Honor System. Next, we must decide what philosophy we want the Honor System to assume, and what changes are necessary to implement the desired system. The philosophy of this author ' s System would say that honor is an essential part of our existence, ought to be voluntarily assumed, and once assumed should be practised. The honor system should be uniformly interpreted. Those who administered the System would perform not only in an administra- tive role, but an adjudicative and educational one as well. In this system there would be a (Jifferentiation between an Honor Offender and an Honor Viola- tor. The Honor Offender would he the person who by omission or commission transgressed the spirit of the system. A Violator would be someone who has broken the conventions of the system. In the proposed honor system education of the plebe would begin immediately upon entrance as it does now. But he would be instructed that his personal responsibility was to report a possible honor offense. In this manner, the Honor Committee would set the shades of grey and by publishing their decisions and the reasoning behind them would educate the Brigade. Since the system is voluntary, but universal, anyone who chooses not to abide by it will leave. As in the present system, one would not be required to report himself, nor would conduct and honor be intertwined. The failure to report an honor violation would however constitute an Honor Offense. The Honor Offender would be placed in a probationary status and attend orientation in Honor, honor boards, etc. Honor Boards should be open and the results published. THE DIGGERS AND THE FILLERS Who are the most important people at USNA? The Sup and Commandant right? Wrong! The most important people at USNA are, (who else?) the Diggers and Fillers! It is an unstated but wide- ly realized truism that the Diggers, Fillers, Sodders, Levellers, and Heat and Hot Water Thieves (HAHWTs) run USNA. When they say stop, everything stops. And when they resume working, everything remains stopped. The diggers, fillers, and levelers are visible or available upon re- quest twenty-four hours a day. Besides standing around and giving the yard a deceptive look of vigorous dynamicism, they manage to tjgPQ, ioia- accomplish some worthwhile and deeply appreciated projects. Some of their more notable achievements in the past years have been: the Maryland Avenue moat . . . the landfill upon which half of the Naval Academy is slowly sinking into the bay . . . the Chis- holm trail . . . the Farragut dustbowl . . . and (striking technical progress!) the use of the Ka-Chunka machine to crack windows, via ground tremors, in Michelson Hall. Not all of our dedicated environmental engineers work year round. The Sodders, for instance, work only during the warmer months. After off months of careful planning they locate their best quality sod to areas of high density midshipmen traffic and their inferior grades to more remote areas. This method assures that (unless the Diggers get there first) all of the grass will die at the same time early in the spring, precipitating anxious phone calls from high officials at the Naval Academy. The sodders then assure them that for a slightly inflated emergency rate, their services will be available to recarpet the Academy before the influx of impres- sionable June-weekers and tourists. Relieved, but not to be out- foxed, the wiley officials then ask, in view of the repetitive nature of this work, if it wouldn ' t be better to replace the sod with as- troturf. The answer of course is " No. " After all, the Sodders aren ' t experienced at handling Astro Turf, and it ' d be much too expen- sive to replace yearly! The HAHWTs are another cadre whose work is seasonal. These sneaky and sadistic torturers work only after the ambient tempera- ture falls below 40°F. Striking by night, they give no warning of their devilishness save the agonized screams of an unsuspecting roommate who pops into a cold shower at 0615. Because of the clandestine nature of their activities, there are few persons who have ever witnessed the icemen at work. It has been rumored that the heat survey this year was merely a slick cover for a massive in- telligence effort aimed at the eventual sabotage of the heating sys- tem in all but the summer months. No credence should be given however to the notion that these 5th wingers who tried to sell showers to 7lh wingers were actually diabolical HAHWTs in dis- guise, hoping to make money to support their nefarious work. In dealing with these savages it is advisable to retain one ' s sense of humor. Remember, heat and hot water are privileges, not rates. flft k 1 Al TOILET RENTALS WASH,l).a 262-1173 BALTIMORE 647-2272 if T . - GRIN AND BEAR IT It was a warm fall day. The pizza I had for lunch and the Melville Hall atnnosphere were conspiring against a heavy Aerodynamics lecture. As I sleepily gazed out the window adjacent to my desk, it dawned on me that an ant-like society was swarming over Worden field. Each worker was a part of a strict caste governed by his position and his job. At the pinnacle of the society was the Head-Blower. Mounted on his International Harvester Superblower, he raised a cloud of leaves as he roamed over Worden field. His underlings, the Sub-Blowers pushed smaller hand blowers as they consoli- dated the harvest. The lowest members were the Rakers. They la- bored with rakes to further consolidate the fruit of their toil. Then before my very eyes, the God of their society thundered up. I was astounded as the Giant Green Sucker ingested the har- vest. I glanced at the blackboard with no intent of furthering my knowledge of Aerodynamics then impulsively looked back toward Worden field, the laboring minions were gone! It was then that the full impact of the situation hit me. A new sect had arisen at the Naval Academy and would soon rival the Diggers and Fillers, it was the Suckers and the Blowers, f ' BJ 1 % .. 1 k H LH m ■ t m -A ' ' v r mm2 f - } tt k » leave m je eave fffie service behind i k ' A : ' 1 . ,»- f us NAVAL ACADEMY UNIFORM TABLE I .i m D ■■L:: lSi f " yT H I ' al { I 4« » up i THE YARD I •k f3 WKE mmmMjaftiammm ' 1 - ' -iiH -ii » « ' 1 ,v ' ' .y ' v - 1 , i HOUSTON LACROSSE TRIP I I t EVOLUTION AND EXEGESIS In the four years that 71 has been at Navy we have seen a great expansion in the drama program here. Most of the credit for the expansion and extension of Masqueraders must go to two men, Dr. Michael jasperson and Maj. Constantine Albans. As director and officer rep Mike and the Maj took time out from the English and History departments and devoted a pro- digious amount of their own personal time to build a capable ' and flourishing theatre group. The dimensions of the problem were enormous. In the beginning it was impossible to find enough people with enough talent to stage even a simple per- [formance. At USNA there is only a very small Literature Major land no Drama Major. Yet it is from precisely these groups that most respectable college theatre groups recruit their talent. At iNavy there are no Design or Art Majors to draw upon for per- isons with experience in set design and construction. At Navy ithere is only a host of engineering, science, and math majors Iwho are notorious for their lack of interest in the performing larts. Eventually, however, the warm bodies were found and jproductions staged. One of the most important techniques used to increase the effectiveness and professionalism of Masquerader produc- tions was close cooperation with local theatre groups. Fe- males from these groups played leads in Masqueraders pro- ductions (sometimes outshining their Midshipmen counter- parts), and actors and technical people from these groups coached Midshipmen actors and helped the stage gang create ithe stage settings which were so vital. Until 1971 productions on stage at USNA had been assembled by a fragmented group of semi- autonomous clubs. Musical Clubs provided musical productions and Masqueraders produced " Legiti- I mate " theatre. Each had to rely upon the Juice Gang, Stage Gang, Makeup Gang and Properties Gang for their associated and vital services. In 1971 it was decided that this setup was inefficient and all these activities were consolidated under one club, the Combined Theatre Groups. Mark Gardner as- sumed the task of reorganizing and administering the club and did an extremely capable job. Since Masqueraders was the eldest parent organization it was decided to retain the nickname Masqueraders for all the club activities. Actors, and would be actors, are all prima donnas at heart. Masquerader producers, directors, stagemanagers and makeup people have learned how to suppress these tendencies among the actors and forge a team that produces artful plays and not series of individual, noncoherent performances. But in spite of their fine efforts Masqueraders was still plagued, at one time or another, by theatre group politics, petty jealousies, bruised egos, and crushed fantasies. One of the most frustrating limitations with which the Masqueraders have had to cope has been the insufficiency of the physical plant at USNA. All too often the group found their productions per- formed upon stages which had not been designed for use by a progressive theatre group producing modern, sophisticated theatre. Acoustics were terrible, lighting facilities insufficient, and all too often the stage had to be extended into the audience area by the construction of an additional thrust, or [platform, which was grafted onto the existing structure. The stage gang became quite adept at install- ing these in both Mahan and Mitscher Auditoriums. What makes a Masquerader tick? Why would anyone want to run around the Hall in outlandish cos- |tumes, spend long hours memorizing lines, cues, and blocking, longer hours rehearsing, and then, step out onto a stage in front of hundreds of people with only one way to do it right and thousands of ways to blow his whole performance? The obvious answer is that the Masquerader wishes to entertain the Brigade. But the real answer is more complicated and less obvious than that. For some, Masqueraders is a vehicle through which creative ambitions can be realized { " A Time For Mourning " was a Midship- man authored play). For others, the club is a vehicle for the expression of suppressed ego, or the ca- tharsis of achieved part identification. For many, Masqueraders is an exercise in communication, or perhaps, a chance to educate, through a public medium. And for a very few, participation in Masquer- aders is the logical outlet for the drive of a consummate artist. ' The list of Masquerader performances in the past four years is impressive and bears mentioning, as jdoes the list of 71 ' ers who have made the club go. Plebe year there was Hamlet, The Gamblers, and To ! Those Who Have Gone Before Us. Youngster year saw A Time For Mourning, TheGamblers, Becket, i Once Upon A Mattress, Visit To A Small Planet and A Sleep Of Prisoners. In our second class year we ' saw Fantastics, Playboy of the Western World, Finian ' s Rainbow, and Tea and Sympathy. This year j there were excellent performances of Room Service, South Pacific, Hamp, and Beyond The Fringe. jSome of the 71 ' ers involved with these productions were Mark Gardner, Bruce hiemphill, Ed Sullivan, ! Bruce McCroskey, Denny Walsh, jack Balcom, Phil Keuhlen, Bruce Batten, Steve Myck, George Skirm, ' Chuck Miller, Gene Erickson and Miles Twadell. In the end, one of the legacies of 71 to USNA is one that it can be proud of, the establishment of a firm basis for a thriving theatre group which is rapidly becoming a valued and valuable part of the Academy community. ps v. .

It is often said that when two Navy men meet, the first thing they do is set the watch. At sea, and ashore, watch is an important facet of Navy life. U.S.N. A. is no different. At Navy, the watch squad performs several tasks. They provide a measure of security for the Hall, stand ready to fight fires and accomplish all of the office work and routine record keeping without which the Naval bureaucracy could not exist. The watch squad provides a training expe- rience for Midshipmen as they are required to fill billets which increasingly require more skill and involve greater responsibility. Probably the most important thing that the watch squad does is provide information and internal communica- tions. But watch squad is more than a series of state- ments about its function. Watch squad is learn- ing on Friday night that you have watch on a Sat- urday when you were going to go see your girl. Watch is shining shoes, (or finding a plebe to), brushing off, washing cap covers, and finding a white shirt without a frayed collar. Watch is sweating whether your haircut is reg enough and whether the OOW will inspect. Watch is early reveille, late nights, and missed classes. And a lot of times, watch is boredom. Hours walking around the decks, waiting for the phone to ring, or just waiting. 8 o ' clock reports, taps, reveille, muster boards: accountability.

" The second class collected letters to the North Vietnamese President from Midshipmen, Cadets, their families, friends, and the general public. In the Rotunda each community which re- sponded to the appeal was noted on a large map. The campaign was culminat- ed at halftime of the Army-Navy game on national TV with the presentation of these letters to the wives of those men who are POWs or MIA.

This is the primary goal of the Academy. " A core curriculum provides him with a broad liberal education in mathematics, science, social science, and the humanities, and a thorough background in seamanship, navigation, engi- neering, and weaponry. A selection of 23 minors and 23 majors allows him to concentrate his studies in a field of his choice. " Every midshipman is required to complete the courses in the core curriculum and to com- plete one of the minors required. Through vali- dation and or the carrying of additional courses, midshipmen are able to take advanced under- graduate work for the fuller development of in- dividual talents. Many earn majors. " USNA Catalogue 1969-70 -.■;!j ' ue 1 1 " The young man entering the Naval Academy can be confident that the professional education and training at Annapolis will give him the knowledge and skills he will need to perform his future military duties effectively. The Naval Academy, however, is much more than an excel- lent professional training establishment. It is an academic institution of higher learning provid- ing a broad liberal education and offering in- depth study in 25 major programs. Its curriculum is demanding, but it contains many choices, thus challenging each individual midshipman in terms of his own academic aptitudes and inter- ests. " The day is long past when every line officer could be expected to embody all the qualities and specialties needed in a naval career. The Naval Academy therefore does not seek to give the same all-inclusive educational package to every graduate. Rather, it seeks to produce in every graduating class a group of individual line officers all well trained in basic professional subjects who collectively possess a wide range of general and special knowledge and capabili- ties of great value to the modern Navy. " USNA Catalogue 1970-71 I For four years we have been part of some of the most exciting important changes to ever occur at USNA. This is the change in Academic orientation that the class of ' 71 has seen. We came expecting training, and found ourselves being educated. In a world requiring more and more specialization the change in attitudes was a welcome one. Instead of scratching the surface of our chosen minors, we were allowed to delve into them. There were more electives and varia- tions in the core curriculum for each division; everyone now pursues a major. The engineers probably benefitted most. Many of the required courses under the old sys- tem had been of a technical nature, and the de- partments concerned allowed people in certain majors to subsitute higher level, more useful courses for these. Thus Systems, Electrical Engi- neering, and Applied Science majors took engi- neering courses instead of the optimistically la- beled " Fruit Juice " electronics course; most Engineers substituted Thermo- and Fluid-dy- namics for the naval engineering series; and the Systems majors got a head start on almost all the Weapons courses. The non-technical men were taken aback when they found that almost all had to return to the Foreign Language Department to pick up three or four more semesters to meet the new requirements. They also realized with somewhat of a shock that those core courses which seemed to present the most difficulties were still there. Weapons had new names for its courses, but was still the same old Weapons. And Fruit )uice turned out to be harder than the old wires course. One change which met with general approval was the revamp of the Naval Science curriculum. Few men were sorry to see first class YP ' s elimi- nated. The new emphasis on tactical training during second class year made cruise easier, and freed first class for courses of more immediate value for all. The NL452 and SP400 series re- quired for first class is the product of a drive in Academics toward relevance to the modern Navy. These courses fill a need which has been apparent for many years and are designed to ease the transition from Midshipman to Ensign or Second Lieutenant, by providing the first classman with an exposure to some of the practi- cal problems he will face in short order as a new junior officer. To implement these changes, the entire Aca- demic structure has been reorganized. To elimi- nate duplication of effort and to accommodate] new interdisciplinary majors, the seven depart- ments were streamlined to five divisions: Engi- neering and Weapons, English and History; Mathematics and Science, Naval Command anc Management, and U.S. and International Studies ' Each of these divisions is broken down further by general subject matter, such as Chemistry, En vironmental Science, Mathematics, and Physic; in the Division of Mathematics and Science. Thi; helped solve problems such as the situation ir which Spanish and Latin Area Studies major took all the same courses but were in differen| departments, and the debate over whether Sysl tems majors belonged in Weapons or Engineer ' ing. The over-all effect of these changes has beer to put the Academy back into Naval Academy The Class of 71 enters the fleet educated no only for naval service, but for life as well. We ar( ready to take our places in society, as well as ir the wardroom. m LIBERAL ARTS AND THE NAVY: THE DILEMMA OF COMMUNITY The Midshipman who majors in the liberal arts at USNA faces c very real and often frustrating dilemma, that of conflicting com munity philosophies. At any educational institution we can distin guish two major communities in which the student spends time These are the ideal, or academic community, and the real or socie tal community. Most undergraduate institutions have, by nature very little difference between the two. For the most part the stu dent has the freedom to tailor his life after he leaves the institutioi to fit into the same type of mold. There is therefore, much transia tion of the concepts, ideals, and practices learned in the classroon to life outside the academic environment. At the Naval Academy the situation is very dif- ferent. If a midshipnnan majors in the liberal arts, he finds that both the spirit and ideas of the aca- demic community are divorced from and often in conflict with his second environment, the mil- itary community. He may find himself in a ma- jors program that is severely weakened by the addition of many non-complementary core re- quirements. He will often find himself stereotyped as a second class scholar because of his non-technical curriculum. And if he gets to first-class year with the myth of academic free- dom still believable in his mind, he has a large chance of having its credibility shattered if his seminar involves original research, no matter what its academic merit or potential. The midshipman in a liberal arts curriculum may indeed be in a kind of perpetual " culture shock. " The correspondence between low apti- tude for the service and certain liberal arts cur- ricula, no matter how nebulous, is not so much an indication of inherently poorer aptitude, but an indication of the anxiety induced in the indi- vidual by the conflict between his two roles: midshipman and student. The Naval Academy cultivates, by design, a lifestyle and philosophy that is radically different from society at large today. It is aided in this by a process called self-selection. That is, persons with a greater inclination away from society and for the military will volunteer. Those disinclined stay away. And those who come and find they don ' t like it self-select themselves right out. It may be argued then that the obvious solu- tion is to do nothing or to discontinue academic options in the liberal arts. And this would be a viable solution if the Navy didn ' t need persons of liberal backgrounds. However it does. Consider the following ideas. The Navy, basi- cally, is a service organization. Its whole purpose for existing is to provide service to the society, not to provide a hiding place for those who can- not cope with that society or for those who are opposed to the nature of that society. And in order to do this communication must be main- tained with society. The liberal arts major is the person whose training is designed to let him do this better than anyone in the Navy. As such he is a special individual, able to bridge the gap be- tween the two communities, military and civil- ian. And he is needed within the Naval Establish- ment to exert the pressure needed to make it change with the times. What is needed at the Naval Academy is not a revamping of curricula, abolition of liberal arts, or anything else besides time, tolerance and understanding that Liberal Arts has a definite role in the inventory of Navy skills. ACTIVITIES BRIGADE HONOR COMMITTEE One of the first things the new plebe has pounded into his brain s honor. Honor is, or should be, more than a concept. Honor is a vay of life. Those who have the unenviable and difficult position )f defining, teaching, and interpreting honor are the Brigade Honor Committee and the Honor Reps. They also have the task of naking honor stick. Bill Nielson was the Chairman of the Honor ommittee this year. CLASS OFFICERS In a military organization, replete with official channels of communication. Navy form letters, and bureaucratic ineffi- ciency, one may perhaps ask if class officers serve any func- tion at all. If the stripers can ' t do " it, " why should the class officers be able to? The answer to this lies in the difference of positions of Class Officers and the rest of the establishment. In practice, if not in theory, the Striper organization is in the position of representing the establishment to Midshipmen. Class Officers on the other hand represent Midshipmen to the establishment. Still, the Class Officers work within the inherent military as- pects of our environment. Theirs is not the heavy political or administrative load of their civilian counterparts. The for- mer is not generally an impor- tant consideration among Midshipmen and the latter is taken care of by the officer bu- reaucracy. The primary con- cern therefore of class officers are the relatively tame subjects which don ' t fall into someone else ' s baliwick: spirit, midship- men attitudes, etc. In many ways, Class Officers today are a benign irrelevancy. CLASS OFFICERS Mike McCuddin — President Joe Schultz — Vice President Chris Farley — Treasurer Don Miller — Secretary RING AND CREST COMMITTEE A ring and a c rosl mean a little more at Annapolis than they do at other schools. Sometimes a crest is the only tangible symbol of a relationship that spans an ocean, continent, or months of separation. Perhaps our ring is associ- ated with the image of the arrogant " ring knocker, " but it is a symbol of tra- dition, loyal service, and undying com- radeship. Both our ring and crest mark us as men of Annapolis. They were created by the 1971 Ring and Crest Committee, and take their place proud- ly in the traditioned Naval succession. w« RING DANCE COMMITTEI The Saturday of June Week is traditionally set aside fo the Second Class Ring Dance. This is the culmination 0| long months of coke runs, push ups, inverted rings, and Forms 2. The Dance is preceded by a dinner in the Mesi Hall and is centered around the L.A. Area and Reflectioi; Pool. The secondclassman and his girl baptise his ring a binacle containing water from the Seven Seas and enta the dance, after a short but sweet pause, through one O; the giant rings set up around the area. Those who made this memorable occasion possible fc 71 were Bob Stuhlman and his staff: Dan McConnel. Tom Musso, )im Carrow, and Rick Weibley.

This year Ron Route led the Beaters atui Blowers through their annual tootl)all routines, the P-rade circuit, meal forma- tions, and various other engagements. The past four years have been notable ones in D B history. There has been progressive improvement in the quality of D B performances and the music they have performecJ. Their routines have become more sophisticated and pre- cise and their sound has mellowed from the brassy screech that it once was to a more melodic and harmonious blend of complementary elements. No longer can the D B be referred to as the Dumb and Bungle Corps. The D B embodies that spirit and competence which characterizes the Brigade it; represents. GLEE CLUB The U.S.N. A. Glee Club is one of the most widely publicized Navy activities besides the Big Blue. And one of the most select. The Glee Club is selected from members of the Midshipman Choirs and travels extensively. The Glee Club has performed on Television, before the President, and across the Nation. In their sotto voice they continue to present the Annapolis image to the people of America. Wherever they are. The Glee Club was led this year by Denny Walsh. THE NAVAL ACADEMY CHOIRS Twice each Sunday, the still of the morning is broken by the staccato roll of drums and the marshall strains of the Chiefs Band. To the sound] of " Onward Christian Soldiers " the Brigade is ' marching to chapel. First to arrive and last to leave are the Chapel, Choirs. The Academy has three: the Catholic Choir sings at the 0830 service; the Protestant, and Antiphonal Choirs follow at the later service. The Choirs are directed by Professors Gilley and ' McCuen. Some of us sleep in Chapel, some check out ' the female complement, and some look into ' themselves. Whatever our pastime, the choirs set for each of us, an hour long contemplative atmo-i sphere. ' ' ' " § band II ' " " ' meal for, herehas " " ledandp W MIDSHIPMAN JAZZ BANDS Come Sunday afternoon, the pounding rhythnn of acid, the lifting chords of folk rock, or the wild sound of soul can be heard emanating from Smoke Hall. And the originators of the music are the members of one of the midship- man bands: the Spiffies, Jay Gees, Applied Strength, and the Outriggers. In an effort to maintain their own sanity and sense of perspec- tive, restore the same to the Brigade and present an artful representation of today ' s music scene, Midshipmen have " traditionally " banded to- gether to form these groups. In so doing they also help prove that the stereotyped image of the " Little Tin Soldier " is, if not inaccurate, in- complete. NA-10 • It is not unusual, after first seeing the NA-10 to oe somewhat mystified by the significance of ;:he " 10 " in NA-10. The answer however is really quite simple. Ten is the number of fingers that i ny really good musician must use. ! You ' ve heard the NA-10, of course, at the Mu- sical Club Show, a couple of dances, and at a pep rally or evening meal. And if you travel out- side of the Academy you may have heard them perform at an area college. The NA-10 perpet- uates the big band jazz sound. They prove that the sound still lives. MIDSHIPMEN ' S CONCERT BAND The Midshipman Concert Band is the Big Band Rival of the NA-10. At dances, evening meals, pep rallies and area colleges the MCB proves time and again the versatility of the Big Band. Be it Beatles or Bach, classical or mod, the MCB will perform it. And well. fJulO THE LOG This year ' s staff cautiously picked up the fallen reins of the previous staff. Overnight the LOG changed from an editorial powerhouse to an ar- tistic professionalism. Success was achieved in that more qualified writing and ideas were sub- mitted. Edited by Brad Foster, the other staff members include: Steve Clawson, Editor-At- Large; John Morris, Business; Mark Gardner, Art; jim Garrow, Sports, Dub Hay, Uncensored Scenes; )im Smoogen, Dear John; George Rog- ers, Photography; and Perry Martini, " Worth a Thousand Words. " The LOG staff is looking for- ward to serving the Brigade and being serviced through contributions. mm SIPCIRIS DSSUE TRIDENT MAGAZINE, " Trade school " is a fairly common invective which has been and probably will continue to be tossed at the Naval Academy. To the uninformed, the United States Naval Academy is a " brass factory " whose products (in addition to being brassy) are well schooled in only a very narrow range ot subjects: specificially, those which pertain to the proper operation of a Navy. A Midshipman whq speaks intelligently on any other subject, art or literature for instance, is likely to be regarded as an ex- ception to a dull rule. At the Academy, it is known that this is not true. Only mids or former mids know just what an im- mense range of opinions mids have. And only someone who has been at the receiving end of a choice sarcasm knows just how cleverly and intelligently midshipmen in general can buttress their arguments Trident Magazine is one method by which mids may make themselves and their opinions known TRIDENT is dedicated to the promotion of professional knowledge, literary and artistic endeavor with- in the Brigade of Midshipmen, and to those requiring minds who value highly the Navy as it appear? in art, literature and professional writing. Editor Tom Dussman commenting on the mission of Trident said, " We are a platform for the Youn Turks of the Naval Academy and the Navy. " Trident offers a platform for professionally orientec " bomb throwers " who have the facts and arguments to back up their thoughts or discoveries. By combining factual, easy to digest, professional information with thought provoking article ' touching on the most sensitive issues of the day, the Trident maintains its reputation of excellence a ' the professional Magazine of the Brigade of Midshipmen.

It is also an annual, the largest publica- tion of its kind, which has been published contin- ually since 1894. The Lucky Bag serves the Naval Academy in a dual manner. First, it is a year book. Second, it is a class book. In words and pictures the staff of Lucky Bag has tried to capture the mood and nature of the Naval Academy today. The staff has been appalled by the frustrations, non- cooperation, and class indifference we have en- countered. The ' 71 Lucky Bag, therefore, tells it as we saw it. lames Collins, Editor; Charles Hiles, Managing Editor; Steven Dmetruk, Business Manager; Thom- as Travis, Photography Editor; Phillip Keuhlen, Copy Editor. Officer Representative: Lt. Wayne Olsen, USN. NACA The Naval Academy Chris- tian Association. No matter whether you are a dynamic Christian, a not so Christian, or just a plain not so, the Naval Academy Christian Association has a soft sell that is tailored to your beliefs. If you wish to recuperate from Chapel, or just don ' t wish to study, stop by the NACA on Sunday night. Their fresh, con- temporary, viewpoint and ap- proach will be appreciated by everyone. NEWMAN CLUB The Newman Club is a colle- giate organization which pre- sents the viewpoint of young Catholics on life. It also pro- vides an opportunity, on most campuses for young Catholics to meet each other in social situations. Each year the USNA branch sponsors a retreat to Manressa. The schedule during the year usually includes a number of interesting, inform- ative, and instructional lec- tures or discussions. In the last few years the Newman Club has responded admirably to the call of Ecumenism. BIG BROTHERS The Big Brothers is an orga-; nization which, believe it or! not, is dedicated to providing little kids in town with big brothers. What does a big brother do? Well, he talks, throws a football, takes you to ' Muhlmeisters, or goes to a sporting event with you. Most of all he provides a bit of love and understanding in a world that isn ' t particularly over-, whelmed with either today. Why does a guy become i Big Brother? After all it is £ time consuming, thankless job Perhaps, it ' s a need to fee wanted, or a chance to dc something outside the walli But most of all it ' s probably c conviction, that every kicl should have the same chancer he had, and the drive to dc something personal to provide them that motivates most Bi Brothers. (101 , chance to ou the; allil ' spfO " ' " i ,y even; I CHEERLEADERS Some years it ' s hard to find men to come out of the stands and lead cheers. This was one of those years. The mid-point in the football season found the cheerleaders undergoing a change. The Bikes, a new kind of athletic supporter — were born. They brought in new cheers and an oversized blue and gold cap that drooped down past their ears. They soon became so popular that blue and gold caps began pop- ping up throughout the Bri- gade. It wasn ' t long before be- capped Mids began to appear in clusters, then they became surly, arrogant, and aggressive. They cheered and stomped, yelled at each other, and never let up. There is an old saying that each team has good men behind it, this year it began to sound like it. BRIGADE ACTIVITIES When the doors sang " Light My Fire " they must have had the B.A.C. in mind. The BAC is a collection of the most single- mindedly dedicated and de- mented groups at the Acade- my. And the objective of this group is to pool their diverse talents and light the fires of spirit under the 4,000 man Bri- gade. In the fall they spend countless hours of study hour each week thinking up gags and stunts which will get the Brigade and the team up for football. They also apply their efforts to pep rallies before big Army weekends or an occa- sional other outing. They dream up stunts, stage smok- ers, and try to stay out of too much trouble. The pace is hec- tic, the outcome great and the BAC keeps on trucking! THE CANNONEERS Since its inception in 1959, the firing of an authentic 1863 twelve pound Dahlgren boat cannon had become synonymous with a Navy T.D. The peri- od garbed midshipmen who fire the monster are the cannoneers and are composed of two midshipmen from each class. This year Gun Captain Dave Polzier and his assistant, Dave Polatty, led the cannoneers through another " demanding " year that found them over charging their giant toy every time they were given half a chance. THE GOAT KEEPER! Symbol of the spirit of the fighting 4000 Bill the Goat is entrusted to the tender car (on weekends) of two deserving first clas (injured varsity football players). It is thai job to keep him pointed determinedly ir the direction of Navy drives, his shagg head representing no good for Navy oppo nents and to keep him out of weed kiile- (also goat killer) poisoned grass, reprej senting no good for Bill the Goat. ttieti?r plav d (ieteii drives, hi iorNar " " oijlotw« ined g ' ' ■-.. CjOt WMID-TV I WMID-TV is a closed circuit TV station run by rid for midshipmen. Their primary projects to |ate have been the filming of Navy football lames for rebroadcast, via cable, for midship- len. Mike Senior was the 1971 station manager, le was assisted by Chris Weaver, Don Hesse,and ?rry Haden. WRNV W3ADO There are many sources of inter- ference for the T.V.s of the Brigade. Usually the cause can be traced to a poor antenna system or poor location. But most usually W3ADO is blamed. Once and for ail, let it be known that W3ADO is within specs. It has been checked out sev- eral times. So if your tube picks up VV3ADO your tube is out of specs. Check with W3ADO. They may have a filter that will help you or be able to tell you where to get one. W3ADO ' s president this year was Brian Robertson. He and the rest of the radio club members pro- vide a little publicized but poten- tially great service to the Brigade If you are tired of paying super large phone bills or need emergency communications to somewhere, the radio club may be able to pro- vide you with a phone patch or radio communication where you want to go. Stop in and talk to the guys in the ham shack. Fly the friendly air waves with W3ADO. The 1970-71 academic year was one of constant improvement for WRNV. The station went to an 18- hour live broadcasting day, and in- troduced an hourly news service with the help of an Associated Press Teletype. The Weekend Wheels system was improved and its inputs reached a new high. Vari- ous features included coverage of Service Selection Night, Ail-Night Oldie Marathons, and endless con- tests. WRNV sports came into its own with a multitude of live cover- ages, interviews, wrapups and even an opinion or two. The RENVEE 33 music survey, published weekly, became one of the most up-to-date charts on the college scene. The TOP 64 of 1970, published in Janu- ary, listed the Brigade ' s choices of the top songs of the past year. In addition, WRNV redecorated its studios, including enlarged office space, carpeted floors and overall improved acoustics. As the tastes of the Brigade have changed, so WRNV has changed and improved its programming. Radio 64 has come far in the past few years . . . and the improve- ments keep on coming. N CLUB The " N " Club is composed of Varsity athletes who have won their " N " s. The " N " winners sponsor various social events which include din- ners and dances. They also distribute the Mini- N ' s which are worn on SDB. The Club is one of the largest ECA ' s at the Academy with about 250 members. One of its most important activities in which the members engage is attracting better athletes to Navy. SCUBA CLUE You say that the Scuba Club is a bunch of nut who get up at 5 in the morning, plunge into thf: ice cold pool, and thrash around in the watei ' getting their kicks by breathing compressed ain And so what, the rack is warmer and cozier. Ac tually, most SCUBA clubbers hate exactly whaj you hate. But they can see beyond it to the exhil ' aration, discovery, and freedom that follow basic SCUBA qualification. For them, vast nev worlds of subline beauty have suddenly opened Ever think about it like that? HANDBALL CLUB If intramural handball just isn ' t enough for you the handball club is probably what you want. Composed of fierce and dedicated handballers led by Ron Spratt, the club cleaned up with an impressive record against stiff competition this year. )UDO CLUf If you ' re a 90LB weakling; if hand-to-hanc didn ' t fulfill your need to devastate or be devas! tated; if you merely want some background fo ' your Far Eastern Area Studies Major, this is th " ECA for you to consider. Under founder-tutd John Sexton the judo Club undertakes to impat to its members the fundamentals of thi art sport. In this year the club had to operate ai a regular ECA without sports ineligibility. It i ' hoped in the future to gain sports ineligibility d intramural status for the club. lUDOCli if hand-to- ' " slate Of bedell la|or, til deftakes ' o imentals oi « hadtoopetJ ' l ,npll2ibllitr SKI CLUB The Ski Club, founded this year, embarked on a heavy schedule of ski trips. The weekend trips to Round Top served to sharpen the talents of experienced skiers while introducing the new- comers to the meaning of " snow bunny. " The Ski Club finished its season by sending a cadre of top skiers to Vernon Valley where they sound- ly trounced a coalition of competition skiers from Pennsylvania universities. MIDSHIPMAN SAILING SQUADRON The Midshipman Sailing Squadron serves as an adjunct to the Varsity sailing program. It is one of the most popular sports, as one might suspect, at the Naval Academy. It is divided into two divi- sions, the Cruising and Racing divisions. The Cruising division utilizes the Luders yawls three times during the week and on weekends. On the weekends they compete in local races on the Bay. The Racing division mans the Class A yachts Jubilee II, Rage, Maradea, and Severn Star. The big boys compete in ocean sailing competition. In an era of increasingly sophisticated seago- ing systems, the Naval Academy is still produc- ing a breed of sailors who are intimately ac- quainted with salt spray, shaking sails, the kick of a wheel, and the feeling of wind in their faces. PARACHUTE CLUB OUTDOORSMEN ' S CLUB If the idea of falling, free as a bird, at over one Hundred miles an hour intrigues you; if your itcmach doesn ' t do flips every time you think ibout an elevator; if you ' ve always dreamed of lying and your eyes aren ' t good enough for air, ou ' re probably a candidate for the Parachute Club. The Parachute Club introduces midship- |nen to jumping, sky diving, and competition Jiving. If you feel like a real fall guy try this one i)ut. Geronimo! It ' s very hard to pin down the Outdoorsmen ' s Club. Two years ago it was the Gun Club. Last year it was the Sportsmen ' s Club. But no matter what your interest in the out of doors, fishing, hunting, camping, archery, firearms, etc., the Outdoorsmen ' s Club probably has a division that is interested in the same thing. And if your only wish is to escape from Bancroft for a week- end, the Outdoorsmen can probably help you. Why not check it out? 241 COMBINED THEATRE GROUPS Behind the impressive title: Combined Theatre Croup, are a number of talented Midshipmen using diverse skills and talents to provide theatri- cal productions for the Brigade of Midshipmen. The Club is composed of various clubs, gangs, etc. which formerly cooperated to produce thea- tre at U.S.N. A. Those included are Masqueraders, Musical Club Shows, Stage, juice, Makeup, and Properties Gangs. The man responsible for or- chestrating this madness this year was Mark Gardner. And though this was madness, yet, there was method in it. PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB It is sometimes rumored that the cameras of Photo Club members are actually part of their bodies, but this isn ' t true. Rather, they are exten- sions of the minds of members and the artistic impulses which rack those brains. Barricaded in the eighth wing basement they manufacture image after image of the world as it is, should, could, or won ' t be. In an atmosphere of rigid dis- cipline, formal etiquette, and professional en- deavor the members of the Photo Club attempt, through the " unbiased " lens of the camera, to elucidate their perceptions of Navy and the world. They often succeed. COMBINED FOREIGN LANGUAGE CLUBS The combined Foreign Language Clubs is a collection of all the language clubs at the Acade- my. Throughout the year each club has trips, banquets, and meetings. The object of this is, of course, to increase the fluency of the individual Midshipman and expose him to the culture of the country in which he is interested. In March of each year the CFLC stages the An- nual International Ball. Young ladies from the embassies in Washington, D. C. are invited to at- tend. This begins with a formal reception in Me- morial Hall and is continued with a dance in Smoke Hall. The International Ball is a showcase for international relations, an opportunity to uti- lize language skills, and the chance to meet a pretty girl. The President of the CFLC this year was Bruce Nichols who was also President of the Spanish Club. The CFLC Vice President was Marcelo Arcil. FORENSIC SOCIETY Somewhere in the recesses of Sampson Half the Navy Debate Team, more properly referred to as the Forensic Society, is getting ready tor their next tournament. If you can ' t find them there you might check out one of the thirty-foui tournaments they speak at each year, or lon around the yard and see if they ' re escorting peo pie from the 60 colleges which participate in th( Naval Academy Annual Invitational Debatf Tournament. No matter where you find then though, the members of the Forensic Society il be busy . . . and have a lot to say. i YP SQUADRON The YP Squadron was founded in an effort to provide a professional ECA for Midshipmen. Participation in YP Squadron helps to develop the basic skills necessary to becoming a capable mariner and allows one to put into use the knowledge gained in the classroom. YPron serves as an adjunct to Tactics and hones those skills that a Midshipman has already acquired. The Squadron allows the individual to enjoy shipboard operations while still a midshipman. The YP Squadron is often ma- ligned as a " lifers " or " gunge " organization. But it ' s this allegation which is shrugged off by the men of the Squadron. They pride themselves after all, in their evi- dent professionalism. SIGMA PI SIGMA Sigma Pi Sigma is a national honor Physics society. Membership in SIGMA PI SIGMA is open to any Midshipman who has taken at least one course in physics beyond the core curriculum requirements and stands in the top third of his class. Sigma Pi Sigma is a member of the As- sociation of College Honor Societies and an associate of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Sigma Pi Sigma members promote an interest in physics, and attend lectures and programs by noted speakers. AIAA AIAA is that Club which attracts spaced-out AERO Majors and Foreign Af- fairs Majors alike. Its common denomina- tor is airplanes, rockets, and the best field trips around. At monthly meetings, ban- quets and field trips the Naval Academy Branch of the American Institute of Aero- nautics and Astronautics delves into the many faceted field of Aerospace Engi- neering. In the tradition of Naval flyers and Astronauts through the years, AIAA has its sights set on the stars. ARINE TECHNOLOGY SOCIETY This Naval Academy ECA, liko AIAA, is a stu- dent branch of a professional organization. Chartered in June of 1968, MTS was the first stu- dent branch of its parent organization. As might be expected, the MTS draws a great crowd at the Academy, and not solely from the engineering, oceanography, and science programs. The MTS sponsors banquets which are followed by pres- entations by notable guest speakers. And this year they began the construction of a Habitat, a self-contained, submerged living area. Almost all of us will spend the next few years of our lives on the sea or under it. MTS helps its members to understand and cope with that environment. NAVAL ACADEMY FOREIGN AFFAIRS CLUB During the past academic year, the Foreign Relations Club has attempted to fulfill its stated goal of broadening the exposure of midshipmen to foreign affairs. The program has included Cdr. Maryott of Ops 60 who presented " The Navy ' s Role in the Pacific " from the foreign affairs viewpoint and a trip to the Department of S tate, which was set up by Mr. Tom Wilson, FSO-4. During the trip to the State Department, the Club was addressed by two speakers who com- mented on the role of the Department of State in today ' s fast-changing world. They were also included in the reception party for King Hussein of Jordan. The trip was concluded with a tour of the Stale Department building and a brief pres- entation by the Duty Officer of the Depart- ment ' s " Trouble Desk. " The Club next moved to the banquet rooms of Bancroft Hall where three midshipmen gave presentations on various subjects relating to NAFAC 1971. At the next meeting, Mr. Tom Wil- son gave a presentation on " Science, Technolo- gy, and Foreign Relations. " Our second banquet included a presentation by Dr. Karl Hesse, who exposed the midshipmen to a different approach to the study of world power. This presentation generated a considerable amount of discussion on the part of the midshipmen. Our final ban- quet saw presentations by three midshipmen on various aspects of the conflict in the Middle East. During this past year, members of the Club were sent to several student conferences at Georgetown, Texas A M, Air Force, Hollins Col- lege, and West Point. These conferences en- hanced our knowledge of foreign affairs, and in addition, provided valuable information which greatly helped in the formulation of NAFAC 1971. PUBLIC RELATIONS CLUE Public Relations is not solely the Realm of the Madison Avenue ad man as anyone who has picked up a Naval Academy Catalog knows. The Public Relations Club compiles records for Navy sports teams, mans the press box and P. A. systenr for sporting events, and generally assists Acade my Publicity. ANNAPOLIS MANAGEMENT FORU v| The Annapolis Management Forum is a protesi sional organization for those Midshipmen it management majors. It is dedicated to incrtas ing awareness of and interesting managemenj among the members of the Brigade. This is done through lectures, programs and projects. Thf most noteworthy of the Forum ' s projects ha been the compilation and publication of a Bri gade Geographical Locater. Harvard Busines School we ' re not, but management still plays ai important role in today ' s modern Navy. Nex stop. Wall Street. ' ( POPULAR MUSIC COMMITTEE This year Bob " Walnuts " Wolnewiz and the rest of the Pop Music Comnnittee outdid thennselves in their never ending battle against Profs, boredom, and the Navy Way. In order to provide a change of pace from the hectic " Campus " pace the Pop Music Committee scours the music world trying to find good groups who can be finagled into performing for the meager funds that their limited budget provides. The results are amazing. In the past year the Brigade has been treated to the sounds of artists such as the Byrds, Jose Feliciano and Johnny Rivers. TRIDENT SOCIETY The Trident Society President this year was Mike Orrison. The Trident Society delves into the well hidden aesthetic side of the Brigade unearthing some extremely talented artists, poets and photographers. Who can tell what they might find in their contests? After all, noted Sci-fi writer Robert Heinlein is a USNA graduate and Edgar Allen Poe went to West Point. RECEPTION COMMITTEE The reception committee is that splendid group of pink cheeked, shined shoes, trimmed hair individuals who greet visiting athletic teams and escort them to the plush, hospita- ble, super deluxe visiting team quarters in the fieldhouse. In the great tradition of Navy P.R. work the reception committee spends many hours repeating the tour guide ' s spiel about the yard and explaining Plebe Indoctrination, Midshipman rank, and the Navy way to bewil- dered outlanders. It is their responsibility to extend to visitors the traditional Navy Hospita- lity. 245 HKK.ADI nor C () V UI II I II you riMni ' inlxT the yellow roi cs, pun( h , nd cookies and the reception line, you rememl)er the Brigade Hop Committee. If you remember which l)and playeci when, or sat around in Mrs. Marshall ' s ottice and ate candy a lot, or told someone to button his jacket or have his girl put on her shoes, you were probably a member of the Brigade Hop Committee. But no matter how you remember the Brigade Hop Committee, there couldn ' t have been any Brigade Hops without them. Think of that! CHRISTMAS CARD CLUB Do you want to make sure you get Xmas pres- ents from all those Aunts and Uncles who forgot you last year? The way to make sure of it is to in- vest in a few packages of Naval Academy Christ- mas cards and send them out. The people who make it possible of course are the Christmas Card Club members. These people design the cards, take orders and deliver the cards. In their anonymity, they render for the Brigade an inval- uable service. Merry Christmas. ART AND PRINTING CLUB Behind every team is the spirit of the Brigade and behind that spirit is the Brigade art and! printing club. The club, under the direction ofj j| Tom Ledvina, found football season its busiest |i time. Thousands of posters alerted the Brigade to pound Pitt, squash the orange, and kill Army. Gymnastics, Lacrosse, Basketball, and Wrestling also benefited. During the Dark Ages their art- work continued to raise spirit by heralding such activities as Masqueraders ' productions and Pop I Music Concerts. Whether it is athletics or ECA ' s I the Brigade is up for it — Thanks to the Art anc Printing Club. mot Brigade arl 6 f ihe direct leason its t)ii» f iedlheBfi?J ' le and kill te • One hears from the very beginning aii and Wfeili ' jthat Athletics are an integral part of the irli gesltiei ' i ' [Annapolis experience.

SPORTS t- ' m fij. ' 4m w V . b, : . »tC m I A NEW YEAR, A NEW SEASON The 1970 football season began with cautious optimism among the mem- Ders of the Brigade. No one could quite forget the demoralizing 1-9 season Df 1969, especially the last, bitter, 27-0 loss to Army. But, by the same token, t was impossible to ignore the reports of excellent talent among the oungsters; untried talent perhaps, but talent nonetheless! From the Sophs, ndy Pease, Bob EIFIein, and Don Canterna would be tapped to renew the faltered running attack. Chuck Voith and Mike O ' Shaughnessy were ex- pected to help anchor the defense. The first class, somewhat skeptical after past Navy performances, but loyal still, looked to Bill McKinney, Mike McNallen, Dave Robertson, Steve Dmetruk, Oz Fretz, Chuck Boyer, Scotty Vionson, Don Gunther, Wally Winslow, Carl Schwelm, Bob Walter, and Tom O ' Brien to provide the experience, leadership, and stability which would be vital to the team ' s success. And so, in late August and early September, there were endless, hot, ach- ing drills. The Houston style offense. Coach Forzano. Plebes at the green fence. And finally, one Wednesday, the Brigade returned. It was the dawn- iing of a new year, a new hope, and on that first Saturday, a new season. 11 MIDDIES DROWN COLGATE, 48-22 The first meeting between Colgate and Navy since 1926 was tensely await-) ed by the Navy team and fans alike. Interviews with both coaches indicated that the teams were in top physical shape. Colgate had 20 of 22 starters re-}| turning and an offensive line that averaged 211 pounds. Their Quarterbacki Steve Goerpel had been honorable mention All-East in ' 69 and t heir big gun| was running back Dom Fisher. Somehow though, Navy was favored by as much as 13 points. Almost from the first kickoff there was no doubt among midshipmen about! ' the outcome of the spectacle in Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Sladiumj McNallen passed, Schwelm caught, Elflein ran, and Navy scored, and scored, and scored. Never, for 71 had a season started so well since our first win over Penn State way back in 1967. Mike McNallen hit 15 of 21 passes for 249 yards and 3 TDs. Navy generated 653 yards total offense; 358 yards rushing. Elflein carried for 95 yards in 13 carries, Pease, 83 yards in 10 carries; Canterna, 88 yards in 9 carries. Colgate threatened early in the first period when they advanced to the Navy 26. After that the Big Blue took charge in a true team effort as Coach Forzano emptied the bench and 62 players saw action. The final score, Navy 48, Colgate 22. n y,.- ■ NITTANY LIONS OVERWHELM MIDS Despite some pregame articles which com- ' pared Chuck Voith favorably with graduatec Penn State linebacker Mike Reid and namec ' Voith the outstanding player in the secondary against Colgate, )oe Paterno ' s Nittany Lionf came into the game against Navy as 24 points fa vorites. With 30 returning lettermen and such out standing material as defensive Captain JacI Hamm, Quarterback Mike Cooper, Halfback Ly dell Mitchell, and Fullback Franco Harris, it wa no surprise that Penn State would beat the Mid shipmen in their season opener at home. Wha was a surprise was the facility with which Peni Ofie l MIDS . in Ihe seco " 4 ... ig tate ran up 55 points against a Navy team which ' ' jad done so well the previous week. The Big flue ' s running attack failed to materialize and f e Penn State defense rushed McNallen as pough the offensive line were a rusty sieve. The Ine Navy touchdown came in the fourth quarter fter Pat Virtue recovered a Lion fumble and re- , jUrned it from the Navy 35 to the 49. The only " z- In li r " meager highlights of Navy ' s performance .i| ere a Voith fumble recovery and Fretz inter- ' l eption which helped hold Penn State scoreless J p the first quarter.

BOSTON COLLEGE MASTERS ERROR PRONE TAR: The Eagles of Boston Col- lege, coached by )oe Yukica, handed the Midshipmen their second loss of the season. The Mids had the capability to win this game but couldn ' t shake a series of mistakes and put it together to score. Five times in the first half McNallen and company drove deep into B.C. territory. Only once, on a three yard run by Andy Pease, did they score. Boston College quarterback Red Harris handled the Eagles well as he tore apart the soph- omore laden defensive pla- toon. Running back Fred Willis also had a good afternoon at Navy ' s expense as he rambled for three touchdowns. The Boston College pro-type of- fense and multiple defenses proved too much for Navy to handle. Three of the B.C. touchdowns were set up by Navy gifts; in the first half an interception and short onside kick; in the second half a turnover after an unsuccessful fourth down attempt to pick up three yards at our own 40. The only real bright spots in the second half were a Brad Stephan interception of a Red Harris aerial and a score by Tom Moore on a 30 yard loft from Ade Dillon, who had re- placed McNallen, early in the 4th period. The final score: B.C. over Navy, 28-14. fe i i WASHINGTON HUMILIATES NAVY, 56- The week before the fourth game of the season found the Huskies getting up for th coming weekend by remembering the 1960 season. At that time Washington had wc the last Rose Bowl. A fired up but mediocre Navy team upset them 15-14 on a last se onds field goal. The Huskies went on to repeat in the Rose Bowl that year. Navy hov ever had problems getting up for the game. Coach Forzano couldn ' t decide whether ' start McNallen or Dillon and the usual flurry of coaches compliments was entirely or ' sided as Forzano typified the Huskies as " the best 1-9 team in the nation. " At the end of the week " the best 1-9 team in the nation " handed the Mids ther worst loss in 45 years, a 56-7 defeat. Navy had more first downs and more total p ai than the Huskies, but a plague of errors, 3 interceptions and 4 fumbles, and an inabilil to capitalize on Washington errors, 1 interception and 5 fumbles led to an inevitab ' lopsided score. The only Navy tally came in the fourth period after Rich Been reco- ered a fumble at the Washington 25 yard line. Cal Durst then carried four straight timis for the score. For Washington, there was no single outstanding player as the benchs were emptied and 65 men got their licks in. For the Mids there were two bad injuri Dan Simpson and Bob Elflein. :y I mt :J 2 - S ' 1 . .mT ' K, JmmJ Rs, M iHHHIB b - -■fmt y L-. HI HOMECOMING QUEENS - AN INNOVATION In an innovation for 1970 ' s Homecoming weekend, the U.S. Naval Academy crowned its first Homecoming queen. Six contestants, one repre- senting each Battalion, were presented at the Homecoming Pep Rally. Each girl rode to the game in a float. At half-time the Homecoming queen, pre- viously chosen from among the six contestants by the foot- ball team, was crowned. The Homecoming Queen for 1970 was Miss Linda Fontenot. NAVY LOSES TO PITT The week before the Pittsburgh game found the Big Blue in serious trouble and fighting mad. The encounter with Washington had left a rash of injuries including, Adc Dillon, Dan Simpson, Bob Elflein, Jeff Steelman, Don Gunther, |im Garban, )ohn Pilli, Chuck Boyer, Dave Walla, Dave Howe, and Ed Burnette. But throughout the week in tough, grueling practices the Mids fought to get up for Pittsburgh. Concen- tration on stopping self-defeating errors was never better, and as Saturday drew near the team and the Brigade seemed mildly optimistic about the chances of beating 14 point fa- vorite Pitl. Saturday of Homecoming Weekend was bright and crisp. The Big Blue played well enough to win before the 23,426 who jammed the stadium, but missed offensive opportuni- ties and failed to come through with clutch playing. Pitt scored first, in the seconci period, as Denny Ferris bulled over from 2 yards out. One of the brightest spots all day was the Navy defense which sparkled, as it stopped Pitt time and again and returned the ball to the offense in good field posi- tion. Navy ' s only score came in the third period when Mike McNallen took the Big Blue 64 yards in 9 plays for the touch- down. The T.D. came on a run by McNallen of 16 yds., after he dropped back to pass and found all his receivers covered. The two point conversion was a Pease snag of a McNallen air strike. Immediately after this series the Panthers marched 93 yards an(i finally, on the foot of John Spicko, went ahead for keeps. Navy had the ball three more times after that but couldn ' t score. As the game came to a close the Mids recov- ered a fumble by Pitt at the Pitt 27 with 6 seconds showing on the clock. Mike McNallen then hit Mick Barr at the Navy 48 and tried to call time out for one last play. But there was no play, and as an agitated Rick Forzano argued with offi- cials, time had once again run out on a Navy opportunity.

C. they extended that string to six with a 26-3 victory over the Big Blue. Although Navy had only 35 yards rushing in the whole game they added excitement by their facili- ty for making breaks and their equal inability to capitalize on them. For example, a Bob Elflein kickoff return of 64 yards in the first quarter was neutralized by a bad pitch out on the next play. And a beautiful 52 yard pass to Karl Schwelm went only to help serve up 3 points as Karl had to leave with a concussion two plays later. And later, after Pat Virtue inter- cepted a Bob Parker pass and re- turned it to the A.F. 43, Mike McNal- len was thrown for a huge loss which nullified that threat. Mike McNallen had 13 completions in this game which boosted him to 308 a Navy career record. Air Force however, broke more records as Brian Bream, " The Muscle, " gained 207 yards and double covered Ernie Jen- nings took a rest as a decoy. A total of 3 Air Force records were shattered as the Falcons devastated Navy 26-3. v Jt.f SYRACUSE ADDS TO NAVY ' S WOES, 23-6 The normally earth bound Syracuse offense took flight on their first play from serif ' mage and stunned the Big Blue with a 24 yard tally from Quarterback Paul Paolisso i split end Tony Gabriel. Navy once more warmed the hearts of a homecoming crowd s the 28,732 fans in Archbold Stadium saw the Orangemen squash the Mids 23-8. The Mi- shipmen offense which had been less than impressive all season was true to form in tfe Syracuse game. In the first half the Big Blue gained only 76 yards. The defense howew held well and stopped several Syracuse drives, allowing only 3 more points in the fijt half. The Navy quarterback in the first half was John Buttermore, who lacked the poip necessary to move the offense. He was replaced in the second half by Ade Dillon wj5 livened up things but couldn ' t get on the scoreboard until too late. Twice in the thi;i quarter the Mids drove to the Syracuse 20.

Across the nation, TV screens flashed the word " Navy 7 — Notre Dame 7 — 1st period, " and for some there was a brief moment in which they thought, " We ' re gonna do it! " But the Irish had other ideas, and as their offense went into high gear and their defense stifled Navy ' s attack, they managed to amass a tidy 600 yards of of- fense to squash Navy 56-7. The lone Navy score came the first time that Navy had the ball. Ade Dillon threw two successive passes to Karl Schwelm of 17 and 40 yards to carry Navy to the N.D. three. Then, on a keeper of 5 yards he scampered across the goal line to be- come only the third person to score on the ground against the Irish this season. The Notre Dame game was not a completely dismal show- ing, like the Washington game, for the Big Blue. In fact, by holding the much superior N.D. team to the same score as Washington the defense had shown much improvement. In the second half the Big Blue D, tired by almost constant pres- sure upon it, managed to stop the Irish several times. And the offense, in spite of its lackluster scoreboard tally, did rack up 228 yards; more than the 211 yard average allowed by the Irish to Army, Northwestern, Purdue, MSU, and Missouri. In this game the Navy team displayed the " Don ' t Give Up the Ship " attitude and marked improvement which becomes noticeable against less formidable teams. GEORGIA TECH WRECKS NAVY, 30-{ Georgia Tech, who brought a 6-2 record into this game, left with a record after blanking an impotent Navy offense, 30-8. The only Navy sc ore came when Big Blue captain Bill McKinney fell on a punt blocked by Bol ' Walters in the Tech end zone with seven seconds left in the game. McNdllcr passed to Schwelm for two poinh The Tech team, while playing a (relatively) sloppy game, held the Nav offense to minus 11 yards rushing. One of the primary reasons for this wa Ail-American pr ospect Rock Perdoni, a defensive tackle. All in all, the Georgi Tech game was a dismal failure as Navy fell further in its slump, losing it record breaking eighth consecutive gamt The Tech game however, saw Mike McNallen throw more yardage than th two Tech quarterbacks combined (despite Dillon ' s start) and break the Nav career yards passing record set by John Cartwright. It also saw Bob Elflei break, in less than one year, the Navy career kickoff return record which took John Sai three seasons to se dine, J " " )lodedbv ' " altiheCe: Its VILLANOVA MAKES NAVY SUFFER Although favored by 6 points in pregame estimates, Navy ' s offense lived up t the pronouncements of their coach against Villanova. It was " no secret " tha Navy ' s pass defenders " were not the best " or that the running game couldn " break an eggshell. " ' Villanova came loaded for goat with their phenomenal passing-receiving duo c Daryl Woodring and Mike Siani, yet it was John Heim, the workhorse runnin ' back who made both Wildcat touchdowns. There were few offensive highlight for Navy. Bob Elflein took a punt at the Navy 8 and went all the way for a scor(| only to have it called back on a holding penalty. The pitchout didn ' t work any be ter than it had all season and the blocking was ineffective at best. On this Saturday, it was the defense that once again saved the Big Blue frofi total disaster. On the first play from scrimmage in the second half Oz Fretz picke| off a Daryl Woodring pass intended for John Heim and scampered into the en; zone with a T.D. putting Navy ahead 10-7. This lead was abruptly lost a few mir utes later as Heim scored his game clinching second T.D. and Navy went down t their record breaking 9th straight loss.

I THE SECRETARY OF THE NAVY WASHINGTON 24 November 1970 ' ,J «|1 From: Secretary of the Navy To: The Brigade o£ Midshipmen, U. S. Naval Academy Via: Superintendent, U. S. Naval Academy Subj : Inter-service rivalry 1. It has come to my attention that inter-service rivalry has recently increased to a dangerous degree and that the United States Naval Academy has become a veritable hot-bed and vipers ' nest of such activity. 2. It is well known that the Unification Act of 1947 established it as the official policy of the President, the Congress, the Department of Defense and the Navy Department to outlaw this hazardous and wasteful attitude. 3. Accordingly, the present situation at the U. S. Naval Academy cannot be tolerated. The intensity of the aggressive and unseemly emotions currently being aroused against the Senior Service and especially against its venerable and respected Academy at West Point is totally unsatisfactory . 4. It must be immediately increased to the extent necessary to prevail in the competition scheduled to take place in Philadelphia on 28 November. 5. In furtherance of this goal tlic official motto of the United States Naval Academy is hereby changed. From 0800 until 1700 on 28 November 1970, it is directed that this motto shall be: VINCE MILITIA (BEAT ARMY) ;ha£ee 1 John H. Chafee ARMY FAVORED OVER NAVY BY 12 November 28, 1970 — Army-Navy. A time to throw out the record book anc let what will be, be. Army came into the game off of two really fine effort against Syracuse and Oregon, and healthier than it had been all year. Navy cam« in off of a string of nine losses, the last to a team they were favored over, an( four key injuries to John Ashmore, Wes Bergazzi, John Sparaco, and Stevi Ogden. There were no more apologies and no more downcast faces befor Army; just the knowledge that there was a job to be done, and a grim determi nation to somehow do it. NAVY ' S LONG SEASON ENDS IN |OY, 11-7 Tho Big Blue Finjlly put it together in Philailclphia and trounced the Kaydets 11-7 in a come Irom behind thriller. The defense stopped Army cold in the first hall as the Kaydets needed an assist from a Navy penalty to cross mid- field. The offense had in- stalled a new wishbone T which was supposed to in- crease protection for the passer and increase the backfield options. Both of these were accomplished, and all seven times that il had the bail in the first half the Big Blue moved in to Army territory. But the gremlins which had plagued the offense all sea- son were still there and McNallen and company were denied points on the scoreboard as time and again a fumble, a missed third down play, or a mix up in signals kept the Mids from scoring. W m One of the defensive players who had a fine day was Mark Schickner. The former basketball player picked off four Atha passes to set an Army-Navy record. The last, with 55 seconds left, clinched the game for Navy. In the second half, Army scored first as Atha hit Joe Albano with Army ' s longest pass of the season, a 42 yard bomb. The PAT was good and the Kaydets went ahead 7-0. It looked as though that would be good enough, but ten minutes later, behind a big block by Andy Pease, Bob Elflein found himself past the line and free in the sec- ondary. It took him no time at all to set sail on a 49 yard run which brought the tally to 7-6. Then, Mike McNallen threw, in a play that few will soon forget, for two points to Karl Schwelm and the Big Blue had gone ahead of Army 8-7! e player ' i jc Marl KOfd. Itie Army had not given up and came back on the next series to the Navy 15. There quarterback Atha fumbled a pass from center as Arden Johnson got set to try a field goal. Pat Virtue recovered and the Mids stormed back up field to add some gravy with a 33 yard field goal by Roger Lanning. The defense then moved in and held on for five minutes until Schickner made his interception, Navy took over, time ran out, and a victory starved Navy team was overwhelmed by the rush of jubilant Mids swarming onto the field.

About a week before Rutgers a lot of gu$ still had 10 lbs to lose. Bolduc, Farley, Killough and Morrall spent meals in their rooms, after practice! the instruction pool and nights in the basement showers. Somehow everybody made weight and tf steerage was overrun. The day of the game, Ray used hundreds of yards of tape and Coach Cloud actually joked while I? played Pool. Rutgers supposedly had a good club but we were ready. Nadolski and Alvarez intimidi - ed Rutgers defensive unit both physically and verbally. Two youngsters, Gary Miller and Dave McCif len caught Hormel ' s passes like they were unconscious (Miller did get knocked out once). Wall ah Morrall were amazing. They didn ' t go down unless they picked up five. And kicker Bill Meyers got fis hands dirty on quite a few kickoff tackles. Final score 33-6. ' Franklin Field Philly. Astro turf U. of Penn.

The second string got in early. The quarterbacks lere tough, Hormel hitting Bolduc for 6 and Ellis completing a long one to Farley up the middle. Later tat game Farley was to unveil the first of his notorious flanker reverses. His ball handling prowess was make him infamous among the defense of Navy ' s ISO ' s, especially Cirmaldi who could not refrain bm letting everyone, including the opposition, know that a reverse was coming. Two backup run- ing backs, Gary Airemsello and Bobby Watts who would have starred for any other team, ran beauti- 1 lly. The naturalized Jap, FHarry Kubo, would have also, but for quite a few ankles. Final score was By the week of the fourth game Coach Cloud felt the urge to play ball again and staged for the ben- of the backfield his version of the quarterback option. By the end of the week he was going both vjiys, moonlighting as a linebacker as well. Everyone was impressed with his passing aim and espe- flly his actual movement. iFhe Princeton game looked for a while like a replay of the mudbath of two years earlier. Passing was f|:ile but Wall outdid himself on the ground. Bolduc got back in the saddle at QB and immediately •oked up with Farley on a reverse in the mud. Everybody played and the final score was 37-13. Dur last game was at Cornell. Cornell had lost to Army by one TD which was scored with less than De minute to play. For this big game everything was there. We were ready physically and mentally. Npre than one player wished that our last game could have been at West Point. Ithaca, New York is a Id city, but the weather was forgotten when the chart " Beat Squids " came from the Cornell team, in h|. last game, Mike Morrall running like he must have been really up went over and through people they weren ' t there.

(6 weigh-ins were over. Alvarez, Shaufelburger and Bolduc could now gain their 185 lb form. Some pught that the loss to Army made 1970 a losing season but not one person would have traded the ex- ience and good times the season brought. And Army will still be around next year. In retrospect, a jicbch ' s reward comes in the recognition of his players and Jack Cloud must feel proud because 8 of ' " ThfiH ' oys, Cirmaldi, Hormel, Alvarez, Grady, Morrall, Wall, Schauf, and Ski were recognized on the all haPP " ' i gue team. :ne second tea« aik to split rea ihega ' usn ' NAVY BOOTERS SHINE Although the 1970 season was not supposed to be particularly strong year for Navy soccer, apparent someone forgot to tell Coach Warner and his team aboi that. The Mids started off very strongly, winning fi j games in a row, including a victory over Pennsylvania, team ranked fourth in the country. During the Penn gan Mike Flanagan, one of the team ' s leaders, broke his le, As a gesture of appreciation, his teammates dedicated tl ' rest of the season to him. The team had trouble gettii; ready for the next game with Penn State, also nationa ' ranked. As a consequence, Navy dropped a close one, bl was able to rebound for their next game. The ncl opponent was Maryland, another ranked team, whom ti? Mids beat in one of the season ' s big games. Tb Swarthmore game was important because in that garr-, Coach Warner won his 200th game as a Navy Coac Highli ghts of the end of the season were the seven invitation to the national tournament in the last eigt years, the victory over Army after 2 years of ties, and Ten Abernathy being named to the honorable menti ' i All-American teai BAD BREAKS PLAGUE HARRIERS IN 1970 » • The 70 edition of Navy ' s Harriers, were supposed to make the Eastern running powers sit up and take no- tice. Led by team Captain Vern Gra- ham, the Middies had both experi- ence and adequate depth. Coach Cantello, who has done much to im- prove the stature of Navy cross coun- try teams, set the goals of a trip to the Nationals and fifth straight victory over Army for the Team. Navy appeared to be headed for a successful season, winning han dily its first three meets. Then a series of nar- row defeats and serious injuries in- cluding one to Navy ' s junior running ace, Nick Lake, proved to be an omen as the Middies entered the crucial part of the season. After countless miles of running in both prereveille and afternoon workouts, the deci- mated team could not field a strong enough team to qualify for the Na- tionals or defeat a talented and victo- ry-starved Army team. The Harriers record was 5-5. •I BASKETBALL POSTS .500 SEASON For the first time in quite a few years fans were op- timistic about the outlook for Navy basketball before the season began. Coach Smalley cited better size, rebound- ing, and shooting as strengths but also noted that lack of experience could be crippling. The first game against Dickinson was a slow, boring af- fair which Navy won 65-45. Then the B-ballers went on and dropped a string of 4 straight to Temple, Penn, Vir- ginia, and Princeton. It began to look as though the pre- season optimism had been mighty misplaced. But as a Christmas gift to the Brigade, the team, led by high scor- ing captain jack Conrad, stunned Georgetown with a bril- liant 76-69 win in double overtime at home. hie I While the Brigade scattered for Christmas ave, the men travelled to Salt Lake City, Utah nd Charleston, S. C. to play in the Utah and Pal- netto Basketball Classics. They posted a .75 aver- ge and won the Palmetto Classic, the first tour- lament taken by Navy in several years. The Bri- ;ade returned from Christmas leave to find they vere supporting a .500 team. In the latter part of the season the team lost a ouple of tough, close games to Randolph- Aacon, and Geo. Washington. And they played poor losing game against Army. In spite of the iefeats in the easier second part of the schedule, he Navy basketball team looked greatly im- )roved in 1970-71. With their .500 record and vin in the Palmetto Classic they moved into the ircle of respectable (albeit not great) basketball eams. With more experience and few losses of )ersonnel. Navy can look forward to a brighter iasketball future. " sf- %9 z WRESTLING HAS STANDOUT SEASON In an amazing season Coach Ed Peery ' s grap- plers lost only one, and tied two nnatches en- route to a second in the Easterns and ninth in the Nation. The single loss came in the first match against Michigan. The match was decided in the last bout and was a 17-14 squeaker. En- route to the next close match a 17-17 tie with Nebraska, Navy beat Cal Poly State, The National Collegiate Division Champs, Missouri, and Min- nesota. The Nebraska tie was highlighted by a memorable and valiant effort by Chris Funke (wrestling normally in the 190 pound class) to evade a pin when he wrestled against Nebraska ' s massive (340 lb) heavyweight. Chris came within k 57 seconds ot avoiding the pin; not bad whei he was out weighed by 155 pounds. This matcl also saw Loyd Keaser run up 26 points against hi opponent. A Navy first! The second tie was witi Penn State. In the Easterns, Navy had four inciividu; champions; Tom Schuler at 118, Team Captai Lew Mason at 126, Andy Tolk at 134 and Loy Keaser at 142. Keaser Schuler and Mason were a District II champs, and in the nationals Schule was second and Keaser was fourth. Both wer first team All Americans. For the grapplers, it was a very good year! $ I 2 i- i4 1 Dm t ' kTi ' . y 1 J ' j i. i ■i ' -r " 1 " ™ -.•if - 308 MERMEN BOAST THREE ALL-AMERICANS The 1970-71 Navy Swimming Team dropped its dual meet record below the .500 level by posting a 5-7 mark against the always tough Eastern competition. The dual meet season was ended by a disappointing loss to a strong Army team. The bright spot of the season came in the Eastern Championships where Coach Higgins ' swimmers finished sixth. Navy mermen cap- tured more individual gold medals than any other team. Rex Hand won both the 50 and 100-yard free style events. Captain Dave Pearl captured the 100 and 200-yard butterfly crowns. Captain-elect Ric Stringer repeated as a champion in the 200-yard backstroke. String- er also placed seventh in the NCAA cham- pionships. Ail-American honors were won by Stringer in the 200 backstroke, Hand in the 100 freestyle and Pearl in both the 100 and 200 butterfly. First classman Bo Rose and Steve Cheney contributed to the team in the freestyle; Bo swimming the sprints and Steve the distance events. Wally Gavett; Gary Smith and Steve Landrum, all second class, provided valuable points in their specialties — Gavett in the backstroke and individual medley. Smith in the butterfly and distance freestyle, and Lan- drum in the breaststroke. The youngsters pro- vided strength in the freestyle events. Doug Rice and Bob Casey were strong performers in the middle and distance freestyles, with Dave Herr swimming the sprints. Navy ' s divers constantly improved over the year with good performances put in by firstie Frank McAfee, segundo Steve McLaughlin, and youngster Bryant Averyt. :a s SWIM TEAM L 4C i .it It I SHARPSHOOTERS WIN FIVE Every winter atternoon a bunc h of dedicatee! and highly disciplined Navy athletes repairs to the shooting galleries, underground between the fourth and second wings. Here there are few spectators and even fewer cheers. In quiet anonymity the Navy sharpshooters uphold the Academy ' s reputation in an area where it is ex- pected to excel, the field of sporting arms. Perhaps the most significant fact about this year ' s rifle team is that it was young. Bill Roukema became the first junior to ever captain the squad, and all of the lettermen will return next year. It was untortunate that Coach Trott ' s talented sharpshooters should have their two best efforts of the sea- son go for nought in losing matches against E. Tennessee State and Army. Nonetheless, the squad did well turn- ing in a final 5-4 record for the sea- son. I ' PISTOL The pistol shooter is a rare breed ot athlete. He competes primarily against himself, but his; efforts are compiled in a team score. He has a! strong arm, a steady hand and a flawless eye: And he receives scant attention and few acco- lades from those he represents. The pistol team had a classic conflict of inters ests case this year. But, in spite of the fact thaf Coach Brugh " just happens " to be an Army Major, the Mids went out and trounced the Kay dets anyway. The 1970-71 Pistol team compiled a 9-2 record losing only to Air Force and John Jay College The team captain was Bob Mayes and he wa ' ably assisted by 71ers Gary Appenfelder anc Mike Sherr. Gary Appenfelder repeated as ar Ail-American. GYMNASTS REBUILD The vocabulary of the gymnast is impres- sive ancJ unique: iron cross, double back dismount, giant swing, side horse, " p " bar, pike, straight arm press. And the place to hear it, or see it, is the McOonough Hall gym deck. In spite of the fine recruiting and coach- ing of Bill Severing and Bruce Wright, the team could only manage a 2-9 showing this year. But the team had been decimated by 70 ' s graduation, especially the loss of Bob Mackey, and while the youngsters were very talented, they weren ' t experienced and this was telling. The team, in spite of its lack of success, was very close. Bill Rightmire, as team captain, led the effort toward self im- provement. Practices went six days a week, including Sundays. The team worked out of season from the previous May to try to get ready. Unfortunately, Navy was forced to rely heavily on specialists in a year that the NCAA ruled only two specialists could com- plete on any apparatus. In floor exercise Navy was represented by Daryl Getzlaff, Bill Rightmire, Mike Ash, Randy Hess and Frank Frabotta. Navy ' s 1969-70 side horse team led the nation in combined team scoring with a 28.3. This season Jocko Worth- ington, Eric Swanson, Frank Lanzer, Brian Fine- gold, Lance Stravss, Mike Ash, and " Moose " had to pick up the pieces and try to equal that enviable record. The first class, led by Fred Klein and jack Oswald, along with Youngster Gary Schmohr anchored the rings. All-around man Mike Ash also made his appearance. The apparatus with least strength was the horizontal bar. The team is composed of Craig Pierce, Duncan Meldrum, Getzlaff, and Ash. They worked doubly hard during the season to overcome their inexperience. The last two teams were the long horse and P-bars. The long horse vaulters were Lanzer, Oswald, Getzlaff, Ash, and Pierce (sometimes Rightmire). The P-bars were operated upon by Bruce Spadding, Oswald, Getzlaff, and Ash. Two men who deserve recogni- tion are all around men Cetzlaff and Ash. Each of these two com- petes on every apparatus, and it is upon their competence that much of the success of the team de- pends. And Mike Ash ' s late deci- sion to come out for the team boosted morale considerably. All in all, 1970-71 was a building season. There were only two wins this year. Syracuse and Pitt. FENCERS AGAIN BEAT ARMY i The Navy tenc ing team which had not had a losing season or a loss to Army under Coach Andre Deladrier didn ' t let him down this year. The bladesmen compiled an 8-2 record, losing only to NYU (13-14) and Columbia (9-18). Columbia won the NCAA Championships, held at USAFA and NYU won the IFA cham- pionships, held at USMA. The fencers are one of the only Navy teams which perennially clean up on Notre Dame. The Navy fencers this yea- " were led by Captain Bill Donge and included Chuck Annis, Chuck Collier, Ed Donofrio, John Fli-; zar, Lew Murphy, Pete Solecki, and Bob jacobsen. The team i coached by Andre Deladrier, who was himself an All-Americar| in all three weapons, epee, foil, and sabre, at St. Johns in Ne York. In 1960 he was also coach of the U.S. Olympic Fencin Team, and is not above getting up every once in a while an showing the guys how to do it. NAVY SQUASH 9-3 Sometimes in the late tali, many of the Navy tennis players move inside, trade in their larger tennis raquets for a smaller model, and begin pounding the field house walls with a little black ball. This year Coach Potter ' s racqueteers turned in an excellent 9-3 performance. The losses came to perennial power Harvard, a strong Penn club, and the well-coached Am- herst team. The Amherst match was a close 4-5 loss. During Christmas leave, the team played in the Canadian International Inter- service Invitational Tournament and made a ten-day tour to Great Britain. In Britain they found that the English play the game differ- ently, but they easily managed the switch and made a fine showing. This year ' s squash team was led by cap- tain Mike Wilson and aided by Maryland State Champion Bob Custer, along with ' 71er Clay Stiles. iru 1 1 ■ X- 1 f B M t is BRIGADE BOXING Remember the stench of the head gear and the groady feeling of the gloves in Plebe Boxing? Remember the clang of the bell, the sinking feel- ing in your stomach and the rush of the flailing " other guy " trying to knock your block off? There are some of us who don ' t remember it that way. And each winter afternoon, after the ring is just an unpleasant memory for most, the Brigade boxers move in to the perfume of sweaty old leather, the music of the bell and the pure joy of physically punishing an opponent. Boxing is not based strictly upon sheer strength. Points are awarded for hits, combinations, ring general ship, etc. And it is these points that determine whether you win or lose. Over 130 men showed up this year to enter Coach Smith ' s competition for the Brigade Crowns. In most classes there were several con- tenders, and the eliminations were spirited and competitive. The finals this year were in the new field house ring, and Vic DeFillipo, a nationally prominent boxing coach, refereed them. The 1971 Champs were: Jim Searing ' 71 (127 lbs), Ron Provencher ' 73 (135 lbs), Steve Newber- ger ' 71 (155 lbs), Pete Flannery ' 71 (HVWT), John McCraw ' 74 (165 lbs), Mike O ' Sullivan ' 73 (175 lbs), Charlie Rucks ' 72 (145 lbs). Steve Newberger was the 71 winner of the Spike Webb Trophy. J % A special mention should go to an Academy boxer who didn ' t compete in the Brigades this year. Kenny Schaub ' 72 carried the Academy col- ors into the golden gloves tournament until a broken bone forced him to refrain from going to the national matches. It was too bad, but Schaub ' s future looks bright. BUILDING SEASON FOR THINCLADS Indoor track has never been a Navy strength, and in the 1970-71 season, it was no different. In spite of a number of outstanding individual efforts, and a number of close scores, the track team managed to eke out only 3 wins in 9 outings. The wins were over Fordham, NYU, and St. John ' s Univer- sity. The first loss, to C.W. Post, and a latter one to Penn State, were both close. Several of Coach Gherdes athletes set outstanding marks. Captain Jim Bloom came up with a 58 ' 2 " throw in the shot put. Verne Graham turned in a 9:10 time for the two mile and Wayne Kennard broke field house records in the hurdles. The most encouraging note of this season however was the performance of the plebe team. They won 5 outings and lost only one. Many plebe and varsity records were broken, and the promise of these young performers bodes well for Navy track. Ill LAX RESURGENCE STOPPED IN SEMI-FINALS In a year of upsets, instability, and firsts in the lacrosse world, Navy had its share of both laurels and gr istle. Coached by long- standing mentor Willis P. (Bildy) Bilderback, and captained by All- American defenseman Karl Schwelm — the teann, looking to the youngsters for depth, possessed only 3 firsties. This is perhaps an indication of the inconsistencies during the year that may be at- tributed to inexperience. Eventually, the team did overcome these faults to gel into an experienced and coordinated unit; a team in all aspects of the word. The year was characterized by a tough defense, and a quick- moving offense that always threatened to break loose — but against major powers — never quite did. Navy suffered only 3 loss es against collegiate opponents, but these were crucial ones that relegated Navy into 4th place in the National Standing, the lowest a Navy Lacrosse team had been in over 10 years. A high point of the season was the trip down to Houston to play Johns Hopkins in the Astrodome before the biggest crowd ever to see a lacrosse game. Navy needed a victory to clinch a berth in the championship playoffs — and it got one — defeating the Bluejays 9-6. The playoffs were a first this year, instituted to decide, once and for all, who was to be named No. 1 in the nation Although marked by a seeming lack of organization, it was over- whelmingly accepted for the best, and provided a setting for one of the victories that Navy could savor most. In the first round of the championship playoff, on a return match after a regular season defeat, Navy put down and elimi- nated the then-undefeated, no. 1 ranked regular-season champion, Virginia, on its home field. The team was up, but some- where, something went awry and Navy was upset in the semi-finals by a Maryland team that Navy had just previously beaten in the regular season . . . less than a week before. The season ended with a final loss against an extremely well-conditioned Army ten. It could be said that this year was a build- ing year. Of the 6 players who earned some All-American recognition, 5 were 2 c. But nevertheless, for the players, the coaches, and all who saw the potential there, it was a year of frustrations. Perhaps the 1970 Navy Lacrosse team did not really attain the full potential that was lurking so close. It did provide a strong, deep nucleus for the teams of years to come. i» J n f VUi: r- : ' . @J E H C SI II E .w g pBB ■ { M ' IS ' " ■! fjB v% vM PHI P ' i f« . ' .::t«s ' v::Tpsa» i: « T " hrm i BASEBALL HAS STRONG SEASON The Navy Basel all team, led by taptain Chuc k Bongard, posted a 15-11 record this season. The team started out with a loss to Maine, but then strung together 5 wins in a row to raise hopes for a strong season. The second loss came in the second game of the Dartmouth doubleheader. It was quickly followed by a loss to American U. After a 4-0, 4-1 sweep of Penn, a loss to Balti- more, and a 7-5 win over Columbia the b-ballers split another doubleheader with Princeton. On the first of May the baseball team took on the Kaydetts in a doubleheader at West Point. The Results were disappointing as the Grey Knights swept the series over Navy 2-8, 2-6. The after effects of these losses were even more disastrous as the Mids continued in their slump and lost their next three games to West Chester, Brown and Yale. The second game in the Yale doubleheader provided the impetus that was needed to crack the slump and the Mids lost only one more game, to Penn St., in their last 7 outings. The highlights of these last games were a 6-5 win over the Detroit Tigers in an exhibition game and a 5-1 win over the Kaydetts in the last season game during June Week, at West Point. All in all, it was a good, if slightly disappoint- ing season. 341 I NAVY SAILING Navy sailors compete in many sailing pro- grams. There are the dinghy sailors, the shields team, and the ocean sailors. Ross Dessert headed up the dinghy sailors and was joined by 71ers Tom O ' Brien and Stu Fisher. In the fall these sail- ors competed in the Nevins Trophy Regatta at Kings Point. In the Spring they sailed in the Ad miral Moore Invitational Regatta, the MAIS a Spring Invitational Regatta, the Owen Troph Regatta, The Boston Cup Club Regatta, The Ser- vice Academy Championships, America Troph Regatta, and the National Champions. The Shields team in the larger, slower kee boats was captained by Steve Raphael. In the fal the shields team raced primarily in quadrangu lars against teams such as Princeton, Haverford and Cornell. They also participated in the Cor nelius Sheilds Trophy Regatta at Kings Point. I the spring there were many more quadrangular and the Championship Regatta. f f f pf ' ' ' ' " t, LCd li L y - sy ! ft III T - JJU d " " -5 The yawl sailors sail in a numl)er of races on the Bay, many against local skippers. Their inter- collegiate activities are mainly the Service Acad- emy Championships and the Kennedy Trophy. The Ocean Sailors sail the big boats, Jubillee, Rage, Maradea in competition of the stiffest sort against ocean racers all over the world. The Navy sailing programs are complex and in- tertwined from NAAA to MASS to MSS to intra- mural knockabouts to recreational sailing. But in all cases, it ' s a sport which Naval men enjoy and excel at. NAVY SCRUMMERS WIN BIG Rugby is a relatively new sport at the Academy, but one which has attracted much attention and quite a following. The game itself is a cross between soccer, football, and mayhem. And it often seems that scor- ing is only secondary to getting in some good licks on the other side. At Navy, rugby is a club sport. So anyone, including the Jolly Green Giant, can play. The Lunchers also play hard off the field as almost all games are followed by a big beer blast (not usually held on Academy grounds). The rugby team has en- joyed phenomenal success this year as one of the winningest Navy teams. Why not try it some time? t U ft I i :iiL 351 The Navy crew teams rebounded from the slump of previous years this spring under Coach Carl Ull- rich. Losing only one collegiate match, the opener, to Princeton, the Navy eight became the Cinderella boat in Eastern Competition. The year began way before the first race and was presaged all the way back in the spring of 1970 when Coach Ullrich ' s plebe eight beat the varsity. All through the winter the crew members went through rigorous drills and conditioning. And early in the season there were nine youngsters in the first two varsity eights. After the sting of the loss to Princeton the eight redoubled their efforts and beat Yale, Cornell, and Syracuse. Then came the Adams Cup against what were considered to be the best boats in the East, Harvard and Penn. The team was higher than the kites they had flown the day before. They went ahead at the beginning and stayed there all the way. In the Eastern Sprints there were still some doubters, but not among the Mids. The eight went to win. They did. The team was looking ahead to greater efforts. A trip to Europe to row in Hamburg and the IRA. In Europe the team did well but were plagued by bad luck. The run of bad luck per- sisted, and after a mix up in planes the team arrived in Syra- cuse for the IRA only a few hours before the Thursday race for qualifying, and with no sleep in 23 hours. The results were pre- dictable. But in the repechage the doughty team drew upon re- serves of guts and determination to gain the finals. In the finals however the magic wore out and the eight finished sixth. It was a hard loss, a surprising letdown to a fine season, but understand- able. In 1971, Navy Crew became a power to be reckoned with. % 9k. - ' TRACK TURNS IN WINNING SEASON Under Coach Jim Gehrdes the 1971 track team compiled 3 wins and 2 losses ir dual competition. The wins were over St. John ' s U. twice and Penn State. The loss es were at the hands of Maryland and Army. The track team also competed in the American U. Relays, the Penn Relays, the Quantico Relays, the Heptagonal Championships, and the IC4A Championships One of Navy ' s truly outstanding performers in these events was Wayne Kennard The 1971 Track Team was captained by 71er Dan Miller. GOLF The Navy Golf team is one of the few Navyil teams which begins the season with a cham- pionship tournament. But Coach Williams ' team did exactly that. In the ECAC Fall Golf Cham pionship qualifying round the Big Blue came ir first. And at ECAC Fall Championship Round a Bethpage St. Park, in N. Y. Navy finished ninth. In the spring, Marty Alford led the team on 6-4-1 spree that saw losses only to Princeton, Vir j ' ginia, Maryland, and Penn St. The single tie wa: J with Pennsylvania, The Chippers and Putter? | played in the Eastern Championships at Yale, Yale and Penn St. tied for first with Navy nea behind in fourth place. This most successful season was concludec with a 4 stroke victory over Army at the Point. NETMEN ARRIVE AS EASTERN POWER The tennis team, coached by Bobby Bayliss has be-, come, in 1971, a power to be reckoned with in EasternI tennis. The netmen ran up an 11-0 record against some stiff competition, including perennial powers C.VV Penn State, and Pennsylvania, before losing two 4-3 squeakers in a row to Maryland and Columbia. The, only other loss was to Princeton. The captain of the tennis team this year was Bob Custer, who was also a standout squash player for the Big Blue. He and Clay Stiles ably represented 71 on this year ' s powerful, yet young team. In the NCAA tennis championships the Navy team; did not do as well as its promising season had indicated it might. The netmen finished far behind super-power UCLA in 26th place. ,bvBayli»w led with in Ej ■cord against powers C ' re losing two; ndColi ihisyear - jash player ' " ' sented7lo " .pstheNa t .aionhadii etnds " P ' -Pl IL FOOTBALL NAVY OPPONENT NAVY OPPONENT m NAVY OPPONENT won by Navy corner kick s 59 GETTYSBURG 42 Si 48 COLGATE 22 2 ARMY 85 U.

The patrol aircraft crew can ' t see it, of course. But they know it ' s there. They know where it is, whose it is and its direc- tion. They can track it for hours. Or days. For this mission, Sanders has developed a sophisti- cated information display system to provide instantane- ous visual readout of data from sonobuoys and detectors in the ocean below, which has been correlated with com- puter-stored situation data on board the aircraft The Sanders display puts more of this critical infor- mation on screen and puts it there faster. The observer can even change the size and shape of the data on screen to maintain closer surveillance of ocean traffic and to make quicker tactical decisions when seconds count. This information display, its acoustic signal processor and the sonobuoys are typical of the advanced electronic warfare systems created and produced by Sanders.

To the Graduating Class at the U.S. Naval Academy Fair Winds - Smooth Sailing - Happy Landings KAY ECKLES — General Contractors — i Silver Springs, Maryland In a skid, the thing that can kill you is your own instinct. A little sand spilled on a nice dry highway. A spatter of rain on an oily city street. A patch of glare ice on a bridge. You can skid on all of them. Even with brand new tires. Even at 12 miles an hour. And. if you skid, you can count on your instinctive reflexes to try and murder you. Because your instinct wants the skid to stop. So it tries to make you hit your brakes (figuring that brakes can put a stop to anything). Your instinct figures wrong. Hitting your brakes keeps your wheels from rolling. So they ' re forced to keep sliding. And a minor skid can turn into a fatal crash. When you start to skid, forget your instinct and re- member these rules: Keep your foot off the brake. If your rear wheels are sliding to the right, steer gently to the right until you feel the tires gripping the road again. (Don ' t make any fast, sharp moves.) If your rear wheels slide to the left, steer gently to the left. If you must stop, pump your brake pedal with a hard, rapid, on-andoff action to keep your wheels from lock- ing and skidding even worse. Finally, if you must drive on a slippery road and your Instinct tells you that a sudden change of speed or direc- tion could make you skid, obey it. (Your instinct isn ' t always wrong.)
