SPORTS Ted Anderson r w In an exciting season opener, the football team upset a powerful Nortfi Carolina team. Tfie midship- man defense was able to contain the Tarheels ' threat (upper right middle picture,) while Napoleon fvlcCal- lum ran for 117 yards (near upper right.) However, in the first home game of the year, Bill Byrne ' s passing (far upper right,) John Berner ' s running (below,) and Chris Castelli ' s tackles (far right middle) were not enough keep the Cavaliers from soundly defeating Navy. The team was held deep within their own terri- tory through much of the game (lower right.) 146 McCallum Injured; Sits Season Out When Napoleon McCallum was carried off the field. Navy ' s season outlook suddenly changed. The team ' s offen- sive attack had been centered around the Ail- American tailback. McCallum had been considered one of the top candidates in the nation for the Heisman Trophy, but his chances were shattered along with his ankle during the last quarter of the Virginia game. Throughout the season, rumors of McCal- lum ' s returning to the game abounded. Many fans hoped that he would be able to play in either the Army-Navy game or the post-season Hula Bowl. The injury proved to be too serious, and McCallum was forced to watch the rest of the season from the sidelines. In January he announced that he would become the first Navy football player to redshirt, extending his eligibilty into the 1985 season. This decision was very popular within the brigade, although it drew some critcism from the public. Fall Sports Football Team Off To Good Start, But Then . . . Navy ' s football team began their 1984 season on a high note, with a 33-30 upset victory over the North Carolina Tarheels. The game demon- strated that the team had great poten- tial on both offense and defense. Unfortunately, it did not attain this po- tential the following week in the home opener against Virginia, the season ' s only loss in Navy-Marine Corps Me- morial Stadium. Navy lost the game 21-9, and tailback Napoleon McCal- lum ' s season came to an abrupt end when his ankle was fractured in the final minutes of the game. (See inset at left.) The first two games set the tone for the remainder of Navy ' s sea- son: exciting victories and heartbreak- ing losses. Fall Sports 147 Navy Loses Two Heartbreakers To Flexbone Teams Arkansas and Air Force were both very disappointing losses to the Navy team, because both games saw the midshipmen hold, then lose the lead during the second half. Head Coach Gary Tranquil said after the Arkansas game that the team ' s biggest problem was cosistency. It was a problem he was to complain of all season long. The Razorback of- fense exploded in the second half and left Navy in the dust with a final score of 33-10. The following weekend, the mids traveled to Colorado to face a rival service academy. Although Air Force was highly favored. Navy played even- ly, and actually held a 22-21 lead with only minutes to go. The defense was unable to pre vent an Air Force touch- down, and the cadets took the game 29-22, giving them three consecutive victories over Navy. These two losses were also signifi- cant because they pointed out the dif- ficulty the defense had in dealing with the flexbone offense. Navy lost to all four of its opponents who used the flexbone formation. i k First Classman Eric Wallace has accomplished a feat which will probably not be duplicated for quite some time. He is the first Navy player ever to have run back kick-offs for touchdowns against both of the ser- vice academy rivals, Army and Air Force. His 96-yard runback against Army in the Rosebowl in 1983 began a Navy scoring spree that put them up 21-0 less than four minutes into the game. He broke his own school record with a 97-yard return against Air Force. After this accomplishment, he led the NCAA in kickoff return aver- age. Wallace ended the season with an average kickoff return of 37 yards. Navy ' s offense (below) was unable to score in the second half of the Arkansas game, but had better luck against Air Force, Rich Clouse (be- low left) turned In an outstanding performance, running 140 yards and catching four passes. When Navy took the lead, hundreds of mids rushed onto the field (above left) to show the " zoomies " how to do pushups. But the cele- bration ended when the defense was unable to catch Bart Weiss (left). Air Force ' s flexbone quarterback. .1 Fall Sports 149 Navy Wins Two At Home The football team managed to snap its three game losing streak with two extremely impressive vic- tories at home. Navy beat Lehigh 31- 14, then came back the following week and demolished Princeton 41-3. Both games were rather one-sided, as the mids began to get their game to- gether. The victories saw outstanding personal performances from all of Navy ' s key players, as well as an ex- cellent team effort. The wins also pro- vided the team with the confidence it needed for the remainder of the its tough schedule. In addition, the home victories were a great boost to the mo- rale within the brigade. 150 Fall Sports Greg Schildmeyer (farthest left) and the rest of the defense had more time than usual to con- sult with coaches during the Princeton and Le- high games, because the Navy offense had the ball most of the time. Rich Clouse (23), John Berner (38). Mike Smith (26), and Bill Byrne (15) all put great deals of mileage under their shoes during these games. Fall Sports 151 Navy Ties Pitt; Loses To Luci( iristi 152 Fall Sports Navy provided the world of foot- ball with a couple of last second thrillers, but unfortunately didn ' t come out on top in either of them. After two victories at home, the team was anx- ious to win on the road, but failed to win three road games in a row to Pitt, Trailing 14-28 with just 3:29 left in the game, Navy ' s offense ripped off two quick touchdowns and the game end- ed at a 28-28 tie. The next week the team travelled to Meadowlands Stadi- um in New Jersey to face the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. Navy watched helplessly as their 17-7 lead disap- peared in the last quarter. A last-sec- ond controversial field goal put the Irish ahead 18-17. jgs.rxi ' .- Ouch! Navy Players Hurt By Larger Irish It was a season of injuries for Navy. Althougfi the most familiar injury of the year was Napoleon McCallum ' s fractured ankle. But the rest of the team also received more than its share of injuries too. forced to sit out for the remainder of his otherwise excellent season when his ankle was sprained by a Notre Dame defender. At the time, he was in the process of breaking all of Roger Staubach ' s passing records. Left tackle Bob Plantz was also hurt in the Notre Dame game, and had to be helped off the field. Mark Colby, Navy ' s punter was hit by a Notre Dame lineman while punting, and sat out the rest of the season with a broken ankle. Rich Clouse was hurt while trying to gain some yards, but he returned the next week.

The Rugby Club, with nearly 100 members was able to field four sides (teams). The A-side (varsity) was nearly undefeated in its fall season, with the only loss being a closely fought game against the University of Maryland.

But these hopes were dashed when the oarswomen lost their first four races to Georgetown, Ithaca, Vir- ginia and Williams. The seaon ' s only varsity victory was over Washington College. The main event of the season, the Dad Vail Championships, was also a disappointment for the mids, as the varsity eight failed to even qualify for the semifinal race. The junior varsity made it all the way to its finals, where it placed fifth. Spring Sports Mk. ' gp ring Sports 293 Every Mid Is An Athlete Ithough almost every college has some type of intramurals, nowhere do sports play a bigger role than at Navy. All midshipmen not par- ticipating in a varsity sport play intra- mural sports. There is a wide selection of sports, including many which are not found at an intramural level else- where, such as crew and fencing. This year, football and softball continued to be the two most popular sports, each company had two team for those sports; lightweight and heavy- weight football teams, and fast-pitch and slow-pitch softball teams. Intramurals mean different things to different people. For many the daily practices help to release frustration and to stay in shape.

President Shaun Callahan and vice-president Bob Poor strenuously prepared their men to fight the annual " Annapolis Week " battle against arch-rival St. John ' s. Just as the 1984 team recov- ered from its 1983 loss by losing again, the revamped 1985 team car- ried on this proud tradition. The club, affectionately known around the world as " America ' s croquet team, " is in its third year of existance as a twin-purposed organization: it shows the public the lighter size of Academy life, and fulfills the midshipmen ' s de- sire to excell at everything they do.

Presently the team is a recreational EGA, but will be shooting for sport Club Sports EGA status in order to be more com- petitive. The team practices from spring break until the end of April, with competitions on the weekends. The team ' s enthusiasm is amazing - the midshipmen will shoot in any weather and until last light. In addition to scheduled meets, the team hosted a skeet and trap competition for the midshipmen and faculty. Club Sports .

The catalyst behind all spirit activities as Mr. Pep, Shaun Callahan. Shaun ' s ideas, energy, and showman- ship served to insure the success of all pep rallies and sideline activities. The Brigade Activities Committee ' s motto was a commitment to excellence. Ex- cellence was achieved. One part of the BAC, the Art and Print Club, supported the Brigade through spirit-related posters and the painting of Tecumseh, which was adorned for all of the home football games, the Army-Navy game, and the Commissioning Week. The Club, made up mostly from members of the Ninth Company, got most of its ideas for posters and Tecumsah from the BRIGADE ACTIVITIES COMMITTEE 274 Extra Curricular Activities suggestions of midshipmen and visi- tors in the yard. Hard working and, dedicated, the Art and Print Club triec to make life at Navy a little more pleasant by adding a bit of color. The Navy cheerleading squad con- sisted of sixteen midshipmen from all four classes throughout the Brigade Their season began a week before the Brigade returned with a week long camp and continued throughout the academic year. Not only did the cheerleaders promote spirit within the Brigade for the Navy football team, but encouraged enthusiastic support for all Navy athletics during the year. The Navy cheerleaders are a dedicat- ed group of individuals, who although might not be the ones to actively de- feat an opponent, are there in spirit every step of the way. The Pep Band contributed to the Brigade Activities Committee by pro- viding music for pep rallies, cheerlead- ing, and spirit at various sporting events, including Navy football games. Their most exciting event was playing at the Pentagon Pep Rally in Washington, D.C. during Army week, but the entire year was packed with fun-filled activity.

The Corps performs daily at military formations, formal Parades, sporting events, spirit activities, and, w hen called upon, numerous civic activities in the Annapolis, Maryland area. In addition, the corps represents the Naval Academy and the U.S. Navy by performing around the Unit- ed States in both marching shows and concerts. This year the Corps performed at all Navy football games, with the exception of North Carolina, as well as for the New York Jets-Miami Dolphins and the St. Lou- is Cardinals-Dallas Cowboys games. During Christmas leave, the Corps toured the Southeastern United States including Disneyworld and Epcot Centers, and later in the year performed at the " Serenade in Brass " in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The Corps competed this year in the Interservice Academy Drum and Bugle Corps Competition against the U.S. Air Force Academy coinciding with the Navy-Air Force Football Game. The Corps directs its own shows without fulltime professional assis- tance during the very limited free time available to midshipmen at the Naval Academy. All midshipmen in the Drum and Bugle Corps must meet the same stiff academic and military requirements imposed upon all midshipmen at the Academy. Valuable musical instruction is re- ceived from enlisted musical instruc- tors from the U.S. Navy Band in Annapolis, Maryland. 280 Extra Cumcular Aclivit r FALL STAFF: COMMANDER: M LCDR MARK BOEHLE (15 CO) SUB COMMANDER: M LT RALPH ARCARO (29 CO) OPERATIONS: M LTJG ERIC GARDNER (5 CO) ADMINISTRATION: M LTJG KIMBERLY ANDERSON (19 CO) SUPPLY: M LTJG THOMAS WILLIAMSON (29 CO) SPRING STAFF: COMMANDER: M LCDR CHRISTOPHER WILLIAMS (29 CO) SUB COMMANDER: M LT RICHARD VON WOHLD (13 CO) OPERATIONS: M LTJG EDWIN BRZEZINSKI (32 CO) ADMINISTRATION: M LTJG ERNEST HERNANDEZ (13 CO) SUPPLY: M LTJG LESTER OLSON (28 CO) Extra Curricular Activities jTST ' : .

Some of the activities the PRC midshipmen were in- volved with included the many sporting events held during the spring and fall semester and all Commissioning Week festivities. This highly motivated group of young men and women played an important role in projecting the Naval Academy in a positive manner to local and national media. RING DANCE John Worman and his staff worked hard to ensure that every member of the class of ' 86 had " A Night to Remember " on May 18, 1985. The great amount of time and effort that the ' 86 Ring Dance Committee put into the planning and preparation of the Ring Dance was evi- denced by the success of the evening and truly appreciat- ed by all members of the class of 1986. 288 Extra Curricular Activities HOP COMMITTEE The Hop Committee, provided the Brigade with the chance to get away from the rigors of Academy life and relax a bit. The BSAC was responsible for the weekly dances, semi-formals, and formals held in Dahlgren Hall. This year saw the exciting addition of a new $12,000 video sound system in the " M-Club. " The Hop Committee sponsored the Halloween Costume Dance, all the Commissioning Week dances, and provided bands for post-footall game semi-for- mals, but their biggest and most successful projects were the Army Navy Informal and the unforgettable Ring Dance. Extra Curricular Activities 289 TRIDENT CALENDAR The Trident Calendar staff publishes the annual Trident Calendar that is found on almost every mids desk. The pub- lication includes pictures, cartoons and quotes for every week of the year. Also to be found are dates near and dear to all midshipman ' s heart; leave dates, holidays and football games. This coming year the club plans to sell the calendars at all home football games. REEF POINTS The Reef Points is better known and " The Plebe ' s Bible. " It has the history the the Navy, the Academies, Yard Gouge, important weapons platforms and weapons among numerous other important information. Being one of the first things issued to a plebe, it remains with them throughout the entire summer, plebe year and is often used as an upperclassman. 290 Extra Curricular Activities WRNV is the Academy ' s rock on the Bay. The radio station was run this year entirely by the midshipmen with the support ot an officer representa- tive, it was operated on the frequency of 89.7 FM in full stereo. The staff of ap- proximately 70 midshipmen produced and " DJ-ed " their own shows as well as recorded taped shows to provide 24 hours of broadcasting. The station broadcasted Navy sports including away meets of 150 lb. football, lacrosse, rug- by, and wrestling. A news staff reported local school events along with world news. Also provided by the station was a PA system that was used by the Brigade Activities Committee at home football games and by other activities desiring its use. The engineering staff had the re- sponsibility of repairing and maintaining the station ' s $80,000 worth of equip- ment. This year ' s staff included Anthony Landauer (Station Manager), Herb Nico- lay (Asst. Manager), Dean Sun (Chief Engineer), Floyd Devine (DJ Program Di- rector), and Mike Borrosh (Music Pro- gramming Director). WRNV 291 The LOG magazine serves as the primary creative outlet for the Brigade. For the last 74 years the LOG has allowed midshipmen to poke fun at them- selves, their officers, the world in general, and adminis- tration in particular. Always looking for a few " sacred cows " (Y.P.

The staff is composed of midshipmen who handle all aspects from contracts, to design, to layout, to business - every- thing including the spending of the $300,000 used in producing the LUCKY BAG. They work hard for unique awards. They don ' t get scholarships like most other schools, but things that only a mid- shipman would understand and appreciate. The most important aspect is that which happens after graduation. There are only three things a class leaves be- hind at the Academy after Graduation Day. First is the class gift, second is the names of various class members on the numerous planks around the yard, and third is the LUCKY BAG. Extra Curricular Activities Extra Curricular Activities 295 The Photography Club offers midship- men the opportunity to learn the art of photography providing both black white and color darkroom facilities. All a midshipman needs to join is a camera and the desire to learn. Experienced club mem- bers instruct new members in photography styles and darkroom techniques. Occa- sional guest speakers also provide tips for improvement. The cub, once barely recog- nized, is gaining popularity. The highlights of this year ' s activities were the second annual Homecoming Pho- tographic Contest, sponsored by the Cre- ative Arts Committee; and a spring excursion to the National Geographic Soci- ety. This year the club also became more involved with the brigade by sending mem- bers to take pictures at various activities and sporting events for other clubs and in- tramural sports teams.

They also held a skating party in Dahlgren hall and a bowl-a- thon during second semester. The Big Brothers and Big Sisters organi- zation has long been recognized as a vibrant and thriving EGA at the Naval Academy. Extra Curricular Activities 299 VTNA i TNA is the Naval Academy ' s ' ' Aviation Training Program which instructs interested first and second class midshipman in the ba- sics of flight. The goal of the pro- gram IS to motivate midshipman toward careers in Naval Aviation. Ground School instruction is pro- vided prior to the first flight by Na- val Aviators stationed at USNA. Upon succesful completion of the VTNA Ground School test, mid- shipman begin a ten flight syllabus, their goal being solo flight. Flight in- struction is provided by FAA ap- proved instructors in the Cherokee Warrior II, a single-engine, fixed- gear monoplane. Midshipman must provide their own transportation to Tipton Army Airfield at Fort Meade, Maryland. VTNA provides midshipman with the opportunity to fly at no cost to the individual. Data from Naval Avi- ation Schools Command at Pensa- cola has determined that flight school candidates with VTNA ex- perience had only ' .2 the attrition rate of other Academy graduate candidates. Midshipman who are undecided as to their service selec- tion will find this program useful in making a career decision. 300 Extra Currlcular Activities ifa Extra Curricular Activities 301 ASTRONOMY CLUB This year, the Astronomy Club provided its members with a view of the growing field of astronomy. Each individual was given the op- portunity to further his own interests in the field by utilizing the facilities provided to the Club, including the Naval Academy observatory which houses a 16-inch reflector telescope to allow observations of the heavens. The Luce Hall Planetarium enhanced members ' knowledge of the heavens by exploring different ways to apply that knowledge for practical use, such celestial navigation. MODEL RAILROAD CLUB The fvlodel Railroad Club has just the niche for all model builders. From layout design to diarama construction, its two hundred square foot layout offered endless possibilities for all model train enthusiasts this year. The spaces, located in Dahlgren Hall, provided a warm ref- uge, during the winter months for fun and fellow- ship. Besides working in the clubs layout, they also made trips to area shows. These shows provided them with new ideas and creations to integrate into their own layout. 302 Extra Curricular Activities i . BLACK STUDIES CLUB The Black Studies Club was designed to help increase the knowledge of its mem- bers in the areas of Black history and Black heritage. It served as an ear to the rest of the world bringing to the members of the club cur- rent events concerning Blacks around the world. The Black Studies Club also served to help the Black midshipman to adjust to the social change which the Academy brings about. One of our major events this year was Black History Month. We brought in notable Black Americans who have contributed to the effort of making all Americans more aware of the contri- butions Blacks have made to this country. NESA The National Eagle Scout Association, U. S. Naval Academy chapter was estab- lished in 1983 with the purpose of allowing eagle scouts at the Academy to remain active in boy scouting, it has over 175 active members, mak- ing it one of the largest ECA ' s currently orga- nized. Various club activities include helping local boy scout and cub scout groups with their training and program requirements. This year, NESA sent some of its members to the Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico, to participate in leadership training, fol- lowed by a week in the field actually spent lead- ing a troop of boy scouts. One of the club ' s members was also invited to serve on the head- quarters staff of the 30,000 scout strong Nation- al Scout Jamboree during the summer. The club hopes to remain as active in the next few years, and grow as large as approximately 10% of the brigade. For that many midshipmen are eagle scouts, as well as the superintendant. Extra Curricular Activities 303 .Jk 304 Extra Curricular Activities SCUBA CLUB The Scuba Club ' s main goal is to pro- mote sport diving throughout the Bri- gade. As a result of scuba diving ' s tremendous popularity, the club is the larg- est ECA at the Academy. The Club has four functions: organize the Basic Open Water Scuba Class, organize advanced scuba classes, sponsor recreational dives, and promote individual diving. The first of these functions is by far the most participated in, a third of the Brigade is qualified as a Basic Open Water Scuba Diver. The completion of the basic course, which includes an open water qualification dive, earns the student a scuba qualifica- tion sanctioned by the Professional Associ- ation of Diving Instructors (PADI), an internationally recognized organization. The Club owes its thanks to John Kiser, John Vorndick, the midshipmen instruc- tors, and the Officers at the Academy who made this extensive qualification process possible. Through the efforts of the Executive Committee of the club, experienced divers are encouraged to go on to dive in the Chesapeake Bay for oysters, to dive off the New Jersy Coast for lobster, to dive in the local flooded rock quarries for further expe- rience, and to trek down to Key Largo ' s John Penekamp National Underwater State Park for fun. Extra Curricular Activities 305 SPORTSMAN The Sportsman ' s Club provided opportunities for members of the brigade to participate in a variety of outdoor sports, including camping, skiing, mountain climbing, and white vk ater rafting. One excursion w as planned for each semester, but occa- sionally a member gathered a group for informal camping trips. The club also regularly lent out camping and climbing equipment to the brigade to use. The officers for 1984-85 were Col Buckmelter, USAF (Officer Rep.), Midn Dale Newhart (President), and Midn Erik Adams (First Lieutenant). ORIENTEERING The 1984-85 Orienteering Club is by far the larg- est and most competitive one in the history of Naval Academy Orienteering. Although the club has existed for only four years, interest and participation has steadily increased. The current team enjoys a membership of close to forty midshipmen, both male and female. The Navy team usually makes Sunday afternoon trips to Quantico to participate in this interesting and fun sport which is a hybrid between cross country running and land navigation. Using a topographical map and a lensatic compass, orienteers race across fields and through woods in search of specific " con- trol points " marked on their maps. Although the sport is physically and mentally challenging orienteering courses vary in length and difficulty, making this sport enjoyable to athletes of all ages and abilities. Although most meets are sponsored by the Quan- tico Orienteering Club, the Naval Academy orienteers sometimes travel to Virginia. Pennsylvania, and New York for two day " national level " meets. In the past, Navy has enjoyed success at these meets, usually placing midshipmen among the top finishers. Nation- al level meets this year included the National Relay in Quantico, the West Point Invitational, and the Virginia State Championships. i 306 Extra Curricular Activities m HI i AIRBORNE TRAINING UNIT Each summer the Airborne Training Unit offers midshipmen the oppor- tunity to qualify as a basic parachutist at the Army Airborne School in Fort Ben- nlng, GA. While in a jump status at the Academy, midshipmen continue opera- tions with the ATU and may even earn their Navy-Marine Corps Expert gold wings. The ATU also provides billets to such schools as Parachute Rigger School and the most prestigious Jump- master School. With these qualifications midshipmen pack and inspect all para- chutes and direct aircraft procedures, thus making the Airborne Training Unit the only EGA in which midshipmen are directly responsible for the lives of other men. ____ .- ' - « . r ■ -, ' r-» ' K - W " SEMPER Fl As interest in the United States Marine Corps grows at the Naval Academy, so has the Semper Fidelis So- ciety. Expanding to well over four hundred members from all classes, the Semper Fi club continues to indoctrinate Mid- shipmen on some of the lead- ership and traditions of the Corps. Club members made the annual trip to Marine Bar- racks, Washington, D.C. for the final evening sunset pa- rade in early September. Al- ways an outstanding per- formance, the parade provid- ed a chance to see the world ' s elite drill team. Some of the highlights of the guest speaker series were astronaut Lt. Col. Bolden, class of ' 68; Colonel Whitehead of the British Royal Marines, who commanded a battalion of marines during the Falklands campaign; and a Drill Instructor from Parris Is- land, S.C. recruit depot. These individuals brought their wis- dom and experiences to the forefront and will indeed have an impact on the Academy ' s future Marine officers. The " hands on " portion of the program included a helo repel jump in the spring, a trip to the Naval Test Center at Patuxent River, and of course, a field meet and picnic at the close of the year. The Semper Fidelis Society has been con- tinuing to grow and prosper and, with no doubt, help to erase the stigma of the Marine Corps here at Annapolis.

This sytem enables the early exposure of midshipmen to state-of- the-art wargaming as well as Initial familiar- ity with terms, definitions and tactically-oriented situations. NAVTAG di- rectly supports tactical training given to midshipmen through Profesional develop- ment courses such as Introduction to Naval Warfare (NS 1 1 ) and Tactics and Shiphan- dling {N S252). The actual programming, probabilities and platform performance fig- ures are classified but the simulation achieved utilizing these classified parame- ters is incorporated and utilized by the NAVTAG system. NAVTAG allows mid- shipmen the opportunity to develop a " sense of tactics " , and gives the opportuni- ty to develop new tactics for fleet use. In the area of color comoetition alone, NAVTAG system usage exceeds sixty hours per week and utilizes a variety of sce- narios to challenge the midshipmen to as- pire to even greater levels of achievement. Currently, all thirty-six companies have teams averaging six midshipmen third-, second-, or first-class competing for color points awarded the last week of April. Sep- arate awards for the Outstanding Company and the Outstanding NAVTAG Tactician are given as well.

His dreams fell short after breaking his leg and putting himself m a Non-Physically Quali- fied status But Jeff never gave up hope Although in the hospital because of his leg tor 19 days - merely 20 days before his first exam started, he was forced to take all but one of his exams on time, and he failed all but one of them Needless to say. that was the beginning of the end-the end of Jeff ' s enthusiasum! Going to two sessions of summer school right after failing finals still did not discour- age Jeff For those 8 months of crutches and white works. Jeff became known as the " White Works King. " Enthusiasm was low, but motivation was high - high probably due to a very special girl in his tife, " Buckey " It was love at first spill! Renee helped Jetf to keep faith m himself and he showed his faith and love for her by asking her to marry him on 18 May 1984 Of course she accepted! His mother, father, and entire family - as well as Ren- ee ' s family stuck behind Jeff throughout all of his turmoil You made it Jeff! ' ! Now it was not all that bad was it? (Smile!)

Bill had almost as hard a time telling people where he was from as he did lellmg people what his major was Alter breezing through Plebe Summer and Plebe year with the best rankings. Bill won Ihe Triple Crown by having three majors in one week. After deciding that feeding fish was his academic calling, Bill settled down and quit crew to live a normal life Second class year was to be Bill ' s downfall as he was determined to be the oldest organism in Ihe universe. Many other revelations (too numerous lo mention) about Bill were laler found and the sound of howling was something his neighbors had to live with As second class year drew to a close. Bill had everything in the world lo look forward 10 including his second Plebe Sum- mer, company sub-commander m the fall and his first stmt on a real gas turbine ship for cruise As it turned out, cruise stunk, Plebe Summer was too hot and sub-commander was different Somehow Bill managed to get stars in the fall of first class year His Success was not surprising and will not be surprising in Ihe future As long as he is having a good time. Bill is a good bet for command some- where down Ihe line Good luck with fair winds and following seas n i ■ f ick came to the Academy (rom the quiet ' ' New England town ol Cumberland Foreside. Maine Before making this move. Rick experiment- ed tor a few years as being a Navy enlisted type Rick then came to the " U S Naval University " in search of a more challenging career (academics!?). Rick experienced an average plebe summer and quickly learned to dislike coacn Leniz and his early morning PEP (physical elimination program). After all, Rick was not a young, active kid fresh out of high school. Once Rick received enough freedom, he quickly identified himelf as a night person that enjoys the rack by day (often times well beyond the 10 minute chow call). These same late-night ses- sions made Rick infamous with his roommate that insisted on a minimum ot eight hours of sleep each nighl Rick ' s smooth sailing was interrupted when he ran into rough seas towards the end of 2 c year, A small misunderstanding with the company com- mander (known for his ability of finding the perfect scapegoat) caused Rick to be transferred from the 20lh company Rick handled it like a true " Snow- man " would ' ve calm and cool The entire company missed you during this last year . . especially me Take care and keep in touch. JSB P-S. I would like to add my own special thanks to the guys in 2nd company for mak ing my senior year very memorable. I would also like to thank my par- ents and brothers and sisters and especially Mi- chele for all the love and support you have given Jack L. Stem Steminer Fairfax, Virginia Political Science Supply Corps Jack leH the nest in Fairfax to follow in Dad ' s footsteps and become the second graduate from the Stem family. Jack had to take the scenic route through Harry ' s m Newport, but arrived with the rest of the class for the July 7ih induction. It took Jack less than a week to decide that he had had enough of plebe rates and promply started to formulate a plan to collect a dollar from every class- mate and hire a falconer to tratn his bird to drop a cover on the chapel dome. The middle years of Jack ' s tenure revealed a carefree, good natured lad who was always willing to help a lady in distress. Unfortunately Steve Wils on is no longer with us for verification, but there was a homely gtrl sitting at a table at the Aflerdeck with whom Steve certainly didn ' t want to talk. But who sensed her loneliness? . . . Jack, of course. And when Steve pleaded with Jack not to bring this ' babe ' where anybody would see her, who asked this girl to partake in her first Disco de Dahlgren? , , who else? Not only is Jack an unselfish gentleman, but he can look forward to unquestioned success in the business world, if his experience here is any indication. Chairman of the Board would be most appropriate. Name any Board available to a Mid at the Academy and Jack has appeared betore it Now any Chairman of the Board needs a certain amount of bravado. Well. Jack was faced with a weekend of restriction during Homecoming ' 84 and that. Jack thought, was en- tirely unacceptable. So after the football game Jack introduced himself to the Hon, John F. Leh- man and got a note excusing him from restriction. Despite this temporary reprieve, Jack has served 60 days restnction, 65 room tours, loss of Chnst- mas Leave, and loss of class rates until graduation in this, his fun filled senior year Look for Jack ' s memoirs in his upcoming book. How to Have a ' First Class Year Daniel P. Stout Trout East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania Oceanography Nuclear Power - Submarines r an came to us from the bustling town of East - ' Stroudsburg, fresh from the woods and looking forward to a career as a Navy wrestler . . . after Plebe Summer. Dan found out that Navy wres- tling was only one of the challenges he would face. Dan spent the first two years looking tonward to becoming a nittany lion and telling others they would be Company Commander, After he was de- serted by nearly all his roommates, (Trip, Willy, Louis, and Geoff left for a lite m the civilian world, perhaps convinced by Dan) Dan was forced lo find a new room ' mate ' and make some serious choices. Fortunately for the Navy, Dan stayed on for 2 c summer. He went into the summer thinking green {the closest thing to Forest Ranger available in the military) but came out convinced that he would be a nuke. No doubt it was the lure of the tee cream machine, rather than the bnny deep, that changed his mind. 2 c year saw Dan get a well-deserved letter for wrestling, and some odd looks tor his inter- pretation of the phrase " three man room, " Firstie year started with a sub cruise on the only undersea luxury liner ever built for the USN. and a tour aboard USNA as a Squad Daddy for detail (his one attempt at being a Flamer) Once school began. Dan took on the position of Company Commander. which came as no surprise to hts friends, and went on to make a name for himself on the judo team. Dan will be remembered for his healthy outlook on the " system " , his sense ot humor, and his uncanny ability to seek out and consume the nearest gallon of chocolate chip mint ice cream Dan is one of those rare people who is always happy to help, or give encouragement when it is most needed. He will be missed, and we wish him the best in whatever he does. LC and GPO Timothy G.J. Szymanski Ski Wilmington. Delaware Applied Science Surface Warfare Oki-Clint-The Master came to USNA via a short visit at Newport, R.I It was a fairly uneventful year except for a few clashes and just about a s many flat tires with his now intended. Marcelia The Polish Hammer went on to win the plebe summer boxing championship and breeze through plebe year with a quick side step of the ac board. Youngster year brought the departure of Vin-dog and the start of some truly incredible magazine wars. First semester slid by quietly for Ski except for a not brief enough encounter with the early morning breakfast club as a result of some over zealous wall climbing activities To whomever it may concern, I once heard him say it was worth it. Spring brought Ski his first varsity letter as an exceptional wrestler and led mto the first of two " I love Norfolk VA. " cruises. Second class year ar- rived and so did trips lo Patton ' s, our first two man room, orange smashing at finals and an all impor- tant engagement, about which he never recieved enough flak. Second class summer memories .... Pensacola, enough said With just a tad extra pro- fessional competency review and an all too short a stay at Keuka Lake.

Plebe year was quite the experience. After getting a free member- ship with the " God Squad, " with Fat Freddie and Bobby " Billy " Graham, it seemed as if Plebe year would never end. To make matters even worse.

Since then, this gentle giant, always referred to as " Skip " , has real- ized that USNA IS more than just a party school, and being here for four years is more than just a party Academically. Skip survived. After three and a half years of being plagued, punished, and perse- cuted by the Mechanical Engineering dept., he ad- mechamcal, but what a great battle he waged. Skip did his best work outside the classroom. He paralleled the Bad News Bears story when he coached the football team — decades of losmg tra- ditions were forgotten m a smgle season. He was nominated tor a Golden Glove after living with Steve D He frequently taxied various assemblages ol animals to G-town and the Vous for all night festivities and always returned them alive. Coma- lose maybe, but alive Skip claims to have been detected on the Richter scale It wasn ' t his accident or the time he fell out of the top rack younster year, but rather because he snores in Dolby stereo it has been said that Ban- croft Hall was mice and termite infested before Steve Slept there His roommates still occasionally shake at night.

Billy Graham he ' s not — )ust ask the girls from Goucher, King Fenton of Winslow House he came, he saw, and he conquered (not necessarily in that order). All his women had one thing in common — they all had boyfriends. Girls also helped Bill to adjust, as he found a surefire cure for homesickness in P. and C. Mentally the academy did all it could. He never did learn to speak, but he did get his degree in Naval Architecture. One day he walked into the Hydrostatic Lab and saw all the neat little boats and the expensive equipment, and he knew he had found his place. Four years later, Bill stil! thinks Naval Architecture is simply a matter ot sticking a 250 HP Evinrude on the back of a Boston Whaler — the better the design, the louder the engine. Well rested, well tested was Bill ' s motto, and he started studying for tests four weeks m advance, in class as well as in the rack Physically there wasn ' t much left to develop. A state champ wrestler, winner of the NAPS Most Outstanding Athlete Award, Bill rolled into the academy ready to tear up Navy wrestling and win himself a national championship After three gruel- ing years giving his all to Navy wrestling.

Many a study hour, guys (and occasional gals) would come to the room and. if he wasn ' t there (91 6% of the time he wasn ' t), they would ask where Bob could be found. If he was there.

With plebe Chemis- try behind him, (barely). Brian left on Youngster cruise, but was not as adept at fooling Va Beach bouncers as he was with his teachers Rooming with E Z in his second year provided Dmo with another reason lor staying away from the hall, and pushed him towards the first of his three All-Amen- can Sailor years A semester-long membership to the EMBC also added to his academic prowess Second class year was noted for Brian ' s collision with the EE Dept who refused his request tor a double major with the Chem.

Ed ' s quick wit. sense ol humor, amazing imagination. and musical abilities enabled him to make any situ- ation that much more interesting As we all did, Ed experienced many changes during his term at USNA. Some were obvious; some were subtle. Dur- ing plebe year, Ed was convinced to quit the YP squadron and go out for Ltwt. crew. While he did not fall in love with rowing, he did become addicted to fitness. Fitness and his martial arts skills he pur- sued relentlessly. He transformed himself from a shapeless slug into a man to be reckoned with on anyone ' s terms. While this is a credit m itself, it is more an indication ol his intense character and his dedication to those things he believes in Of course there are things about Ed which will never change and things which will never change soon enough. At times Ed ' s career at USNA seemed to be a series of confrontations with walls, doors, roommates, and innocent bystanders As long as he can keep his temper, his hands, and his feet under control, he will be allright Ed. remember what G Thorogood said about us hot-headed men But most impor- tantly.

Mati any letters lately, bud ' ' Drew ' s ongoing passions are antique and contemporary tirearms, mission impossible. Rusty Nails, the Vouz, and. most importantly, the Corps Being a Marine will allow Drew to indulge m one ol his favorite pas- times blowing things up To hts classmates. Drew was a humorous, good natured person who could always be counted on, as long as you didn ' t need a ride from Georgetown He could also be counted to go oul and have a good lime, provided drinking wasn ' t involved Sometimes he would even slay in and have fun. like that warm evening during AC- TRAMID when he took a dip m the Michelson- Chauvenet fountain with some classmates All good times must finally end, and so must all Acade- my experiences Good luck with everything, Drew, you ' ve been a true Inend to us all. 438 Thirteenth Company Dal Ho Kim Kim Providence, Rhode Island Chemistry Nuclear Power - Submarines Dalho came to 13 from the tiny, tiny, ttny state ot Rhode Island Dal wanted to leave his mark on USNA from the start He began by trying to make an impression of his knee on the 5-2 deck as he plummeted from the upper bunk al 0400 on the third day of Plebe summer, It was also at this time that we got our first hint of the love affair twtween Dal and the Bancroft medical which would blossom and grow into one of the largest medical files in naval history. Dalho showed his true navy colors the very first time he boarded MSL. Rumor has it that he spent the entire journy hanging over the rail taking a second look at breakfast With school year came many revelations about the Kim- mer The strangest of these came m the area of academics where it became painst akingly obvious that unlike the rest of us. DH was actually here lo learn something He chose a real maior with hard courses He took electives with strange sounding names {Inorganic Biological Neutromc Chemis- try ' ' ) and best (or worst) of all. he aced them Dalho ' s idea of a gouge course was one which in- cluded a minimum of 3 term papers, 5 projects. 1 7 textbooks enough independent research to keep any mere mortal awake 26 hours a day Although Dalho ' s heritage is Korean, it is firmly believed that there is a little Transylvaman tossed in somewhere for good measure Dalho chose to sleep during most people ' s waking hours, and rise when most people went lo bed We still don ' t know what he did during the wee hours ol the morning all atone in the Batt Cave {or was he alone? Maureen?) But seri- ously, the trio of Kim, Long, Matza lived together for all 4 years starting with plebe summer We shared many fantastic times together As Dalho leaves USNA to pursue a career somewhere under the seven seas (subs don ' t roll), we wish him all the tuck and success the world has to offer Joe Mark Gary D.

However, First Class year caught up with him when he recieved " not only the bnck but the entire wall " He earned the award on a tipsy (no excuse) night at the 0-club with a fellow (female) inhabitant of Mother B, Being the son of a career Marine. Gary made up his mind on service selection early. He was not only a gung-ho mid but a top performer as well. Gary earned his gold jump wings, kept an immaculate military appearance, aced most of the PE tests and maintained a good CQPR throughout his tenure at USNA Sometimes a legend in his own mind, " hum- bly " asking, " I only did 439 pull-ups, how about you ' ' " But while success went much unappreciated by most, his personal growth did get noticed. Gary grew physically (3 " and 30 lbs) and more impor- tantly, matured significantly in his dealings with people. The government made a sound investment in this young man which will pay oft country as a Marine Pilot. Arthur D.

Nobody sweats the details like D A Magnoni, Dave quickly gained the nickname " wheels " younster year when caught driving within the 7-mile limit by his favorite female 5-striper, Dave used his lost weekends to excel in the Systems Engineering ma- jor. It t)ecame apparent to all of us that Dave was the one to see about computer related problems. When talking to Dave about computers, we would often hear, " It ' s real easy, you should have no problem with this. " Right Dave, as we all failed our computer programming classes Although Dave spent a great deal of time studying, he always man- aged to loosen up on the weekends. Remember Notre Dame, Dave? During second class year, Mags was given the new nickname of " Dr. Intensi- ty " by the youngsters He also got his very own computer so that he didn ' t have to waste precious minutes walking over to Ward hall. Dave earned a new nickname first class year While he finally achieved his goals of being a 3-striper and owning his own car, he still managed to become quite fa- miliar with the bus schedules Really Dave.

Pennsylvania Applied Science U.S. Marine Corps Joe came lo Canoe U. from the great city of Philadelphia. To hear Joe describe Philly you would think God himself was born and raised on the North-side. Plebe year was pretty much along the norm for Joe, except that we noted his infatuation with a football. He took it almost everywhere with him. including to bed. Besides his love for his foot- ball. Joe ' s next passion was his love of food. His pursuit of food was going well until he came upon a stray roast beef sandwich in the company ward- room ' s frig on 2 for 7 night Because of Joe ' s condi- tion at the time, he didn ' t notice the green hue of the beef on the sandwich This would soon bring him to his knees praying for death. After plebe year Joe began to excel with his academics especially in the field of electrical engineering. He became known to us all as Dr. Ohm. Joe would be willing to offer E.I, in wires to anyone who would darken his doorstep. Bird also had another love besides EE . . . his love of computers. You could find htm at the terminals at ail hours, but sometimes he would just get lazy and seek help from his friends. What a semester that turned out to be, making Joe a re- cord holder for the EMBC! We still have fond mem- ories of waking to the sound of an early morning brush off Joe Momma also became known as one of the leading fashion trend setters for the compa- ny.

" The best laid plans of mice and men, " His academic interests lie in English, which is evident in the vocabulary he uses to confound un- suspecting strangers and impress his worshiping roommate. However, he knew his weaknesses and found time to devote energy to a second semester in Doth chemistry and Boats. Joey was an enter- I tainer at heart, whether it be entertaining the 4 c regiment as the M C of the talent show, a cameo perJormance in Masqueradors or playing his great- est role as a blind man in the Seville Quarter m P- Cola, he was always guaranteed to make someone laugh.

Though we may not see one another for years, the friend- ship we have built will always remain. To my classmates of the l8th company I leave congratulations for succeeding here at the Acade- my and the best of luck in the years ahead We were and always will be a team. To my wife Jamie who led me through the last year at Annapolis I leave a promise. " I promise you my love without any limits.

Habelhead came ' » to Whatzamatta U from the liberal state of Ohio . yo. dude! Plebe year highlights include bagging out of evening meal comearounds on the Greyhounds ol the Severn and a small room inspec- tion that characterized our nickname " The Grod Brothers " Gregg readily took advantage of his dragging privileges youngster year Those big blue eyes were irresislable Gregg was So polite to the ladies that he let one " kee-yah ' " him to defeat in his only karate match Karate wasn ' t his only specialty, though. I would have never guessed that G T. was such a talented golfer, yet he proved to everyone that he was the Arnold Palmer of the Boat School when he got a hole m one on the 17th green If there is one of G T ' s femmes that sticks out m my mind, it has to be Melissa. At first I just thought she was playing hard to gel, but obviously Gregg was not using the right moves. No one sends their loved one a photo of herself and her 45 pistol. That would have turned me off a little too, Gregg. It was not until second class year that Admiral Habel became General Habel. Boy. what a great time Gregg had with second class academics Wires was his forte, with Steam and Megagraham a close second There ' s nothing a few allnighters can ' t solve though. First class year Gregg could always be found m the Wardroom making " cheeseable " comments The most notable being his great idea for our class picture in a graveyard, (more or less).

Youngster year went by without a hitch as Boothe Overloaded both semesters and racked up a grade point average that would give most people a nosebleed Still inundated with free time, he solved the problem by taking up a hobby or two. Radio-controlled models, a ham radio set. and oc- casional visits to Jennifer at Yale helped to fill in the gaps. Second class summer sparked a love for fly- ing but pointed him towards nuclear submarines as his choice for service selection. Overloading with Mech E courses during the first semester of second class year, Boothe still found himself overwhelmed with spare time. He alleviated the situation by mak- ing more frequent trips to Yale, planning and build- ing a radio-controlled blimp as an army project, training for and running the first of bis two mara- thons, and flying on the weekends to earn his pilot ' s license Second semester second class year brought the whole picture into focus.

His lirst choice of majors. Mech E , at first seemed studly until we realized that his real reason lie in wanting to be the only person in his class to change his major from Mech. E. to English all in one jump His dedication to academics, especially his first class year, permitted him to spend most o1 his study hour in the rack. While not sleeping, his performance on the ath- letic field helped him to attain a memorable impres- sion as a starter in Co lightweight football He also was president of the Baptist Student Union and an active member o( the glee club which sent him all over the states Then there was all of David ' s steady girlfriends whom he kept in constant unrest over whom he would date next. After a rough love life second class year, he joined the BTR ciub and continues to be a faithful member With this devotion to the Lord, David will bring new lite into the surface com- munity and be an encouragement to all christians who sevre with him Good luck buddy and keep the Navy squared away.

Olson Todd Salem, Ohio Mechanical Engineering Nuclear Power - Surface rodd came to the Academy from a small town in Ohio The same state that is known (or such athletic greats as Johnny Bench, Jim Brown, Pete Rose and Tony Cola, Todd did not fit this mold being more o1 a academic stud than an athletic one. From the first moments of Plebe Summer, I knew that Todd was someone special. When Plebe Sum- mer proved not enough tor him, Todd created his own challenges such as betting a squad leader that he could solve Rubik ' s Cube in a specified se- quence in less than ten minutes It was fine that he wanted the extra challenge, but did he have to involve the rest of the platoon? The rest ot plebe year proved to be routine except for the mistake ot greeting Mr Kessler - 1 mean Mr Stem A faux pas that will surely go down in history. It was not until youngster year that Todd showed me what he was really made of. He laid a great academic foundation by earning two 4.0s while liv- ing, competing and arguing with his " friend " Bobo This accomplishment is even more outstanding m light of the fact that Todd found something at the first Dahlgren which would occupy a lot ot his time time. Todd was not seen around the company area much his last couple ot years. During the week he could be found studying in Luce or the Mech E lab and on the weekends he could be seen heading north to Glen Burnie. First Class summer proved to be a most impor- tant period in Todd ' s life. He met his bride to be and found out that subs weren ' t tor him, much to the pleasure of the surface community It has been a great pleasure, except during the semesterly wrestling matches, having Todd as such a good close friend God bless and God speed -TBM- Brian W. Saxman Saxs Round Rock. Texas Mechanical Engineering Naval Flight Officer Only Suzi called him ' •stud. " but from the mo- ment he volunteered to do the decathlon plebe summer, we all knew Brian was a born ath- lete. Whether he was rowing plebe crew, swimming on the ball team, Of boxing for the brigade, he put his whole heart into it Not challenged enough after validating four years ot swimming, he ran in the Marine Corps Marathon twice and then began training for his first triathlon. Always active, he earned his scuba quais as a youngster, his soanng pin with Todd " Zoom " Raines, and a place on the EP square dancing team Judging from his SAT scores, we concluded that he had come with an academic waiver, so it was no surprise when he chose a baggit major like Mech E. Adopted into a very rich family, Brian spent most of his weekends at the mansion — Maranatha Mansion. His strong dedication to the Lord and his conihbution to OOF will leave a strong impression on the academy A stalwart member of the BTR club for three years, he was excommunicated from this elite organization when Suzi strolled into his life He chased her until she caught him. though she swore she was just after his Porsche 280Z Actually, the first time he asked her out she said. " Brian who? " During most vacations, he could be found on the slopes of Colo- rado. The rest of the lime, he stayed home m the Lone Star state where his girl from home and south- ern belle attended UT, but Simon and I never will forgive him for letting Tern go out with someone from another company during June Week As his roommate and close friend for two and a half years, I know about all his road trips to U of Maryland, why he was late for taps after the Kappa Delta dance. and how often he washed those maroon sweat pants, " See you there or in the air " Charles W.

Now, other plans have been made and Chuckle is going to be a gruntoid He ' s still determined to be a pilot, no matter how many years it takes In the interim, we expect Chuck to be permanantty wasted away in Margarl- taville We ' re not sure how Chuck ' s fiance to be, Alison, feels about all of this, but no one here is brave enough to ask her. Actually, Charles should fit well into the Marine Corps Brainwashing program As the undisputed master of nocturnal activities, he has already mas- tered the fine art of aquiring various objects of inter- est about the yard, rapelling and sneaking around in general Besides, he looks like a baby-killer any- way, with no hair and fangs to boot We wish Chuck -n- Ai all the best and hope he eventually gets his very own shiny gold aviator wings, as those of us on the ground will be much better off for it.

Plebe year started out wtth a bang as he became proficieni at catching incoming Hack from the SLFK I which was meant tor someone else . . wrong place, wrong time! Youngster year brought him close to FT and Larry and the need to earn a letter sweater. After I deciding Timmy ' s wasn ' t the place to earn his let- ter, he took up towel-throwing and lettered once second-class year and twice first-class year. Seri- ously. Todd did an outstanding job managing the water polo and swimming teams so good in fact that Coach Lawrence actually learned his name by 1 c year! Even more valuable to him than his sweater, sec- ond-class year brought Christ into Todd ' s life By his living testimony and his work with FCA and OCF. he has been an inspiration to many of us. Rrst-class year started with summer school, but [then came . . . THE CARM! We always figured that il the RX-7 had been a female, he would have married il.

He was either at the weightroom with Chip, in the wardroom watching the Love Boat, or in his rack While in his rack. Slim acquired the nickname of the " Sleeping Chamsaw " He could be heard 3 rooms down the hall. Polly was the Tailgater Rep and Company Social Director (i e Partyman Extraordinaire) People had a nasty habit of getting drunk when he was tending bar. Beer, women, flying, and mellow music (?) were tops on his list. Slim was also known as " Mr Roadtrip. " He and his Singer-powered ' Bird had blessed the Burgs (Shippens and Blooms), Lock Haven. W Va , Hood, U of D, and Long Island many a time. Most of Slim ' s exercise came on these trips He loved to dance, especially to funk (Thanks Turk ) Slim also played Defensive End on the Bri- gade Champ Batt Football Team, where he was known as the " Sackman. " He also coached soft- ball for 3 years and started on the Fieldball Dynas- ty.

" Nothing could save the Cambodian in the field ol partying. Though he could always keep up with the best, Jim was found passed out on the odd top shelf or washing his face in the wrong basm after a rousing chorus of " Mary Had a Little Lamb " Jim clued in on where the real action was that year and got his initiation into offshore sailing with the fearless wonder on Flirt. Jim liked nothing better than t eing out on the open seas with nothing on but a smite (except may- be being in port with a beer in hand) Jim discov- ered the opposite sex 2nd class year and with the introduction of BBI, left a trait of broken hearts (even one broken a second time up in Little Jerusa- lem) Since then Jim ' s car tells his life story Road trips to the Keys.

Maryland Political Science Intelligence Francis Xavier Sheehan came to the Naval Academy alter one year of hard partying m his hometown of College Park, having delayed his naval career by attending the University of Mary- land. Frank realized quickly that paying for an edu- cation was not the preferred method, and he decided to follow his brother to USNA, irregardless ol all the broken-hearted coeds he left behind Shank, as he is affectionately known, soon had almost as many friends as he had nicknames. Shank was the predominant choice, although his overbearing physical stature earned him the title. M.S. Not content with only two nicknames. Frank perfected his own style of studying to the point where many began to call him by his favorite label, Rack-Man, When not in the clutches of the big blue monster, M S could always be counted on for un- usual and interesting mstghis to the problem at hand, impossible to make angry. Shank ' s warm, good nature coupled with his amazingly quick wit to make him the best-liked person in the company Everyone wanted to be his friend, and he never hesitated to oblige. The Sheehan homestead in College Park tsecame a second home for the Rack- Man ' s classmates, and his Dad spent the family fortune trying to keep the refrigerator stocked wiih Wiedemann ' s To prevent interference with his study hab its. Frank became a political science ma- jor, and French was his best subject (unless you ask the girls he ' s kissed) Yes.
