Middies March on Camp LeJeune
Last week I could not even spell "Herocropter Pilit" and
now I are one.
Home, James! ! !
This year Major Ringley and Staff Sargant
Holly, accompanied by twelve midshipmen, spent
two nights and two days at Camp LeJeune. The
first night was made special by an ex-Gamecock
who provided steak dinners and two rounds of drinks
for all the midshipmen. The following day was
spent first at the headquarters building attending
morning colors with the commanding general. Later
we were given an explosives demonstration which
consisted of various mines and satchel charges
used by the Marine engineers. This was followed
by a tearful visit to the gas chamber where all
learned to love their gas masks. A ride on the new
LVT'S and a chance to fire the M16, M60, and a
.45 filled the rest of the afternoon.
The second day started with a visit to the
New River Air Station for a quick look at the heli-
copter support group. Next the midshipmen were
shOWn the various types of artillery and various
pieces of connected equipment that help to make
an infantry commander's life more pleasant. To
wrap up the visit the Marine Recons displayed
their radio, scuba, and parachute equipment and
explained the procedure for becoming a Recon
The trip reached it's most harrowing point on
the bus ride from Columbia airport with SKl Car-
michael at the wheel. In the words of S$gt. Holly,
"The trip was a breath of fresh air." To the rest
of us it was quite interesting. We shall miss the
hot chow and cold drinks.
What a gas! l l l

presenting and supporting the NROTC.
Mermaids are selected on the basis of scholar-
ship, leadership, and willingness to serve, as well
as poise and interest in the Naval service.
Every month the Mermaid Fleet completes a
service project, such as making Halloween tray
pIace cards and Christmas wreaths for the State

family at Thanksgiving. Some of these projects
as well as their many social activities are done
in coniunction with the Compass and Chart Society
achor the Midshipman Battalion.

of displaying their physical prowess in the much
awaited P. T. test. In this marathon event points
are awarded for the number of pushups and situps
done, their distance in the standing broad iump,
and the time required to run the 300 yard shuttle
run. The platoon with the highest cumutative number
of points is recognized for its dedication.
CARTER PUTS OUT THE WORD.
As it should be, our Marine Corps Birthday is cause for
celebration; celebration in honor of another year of proud, dedicated
and successful service to our Country.
This occasion not only recalls a birth and the passing of
another year of success and honor - but celebrates a rebirth of
the spirit which binds all Marines.
That spirit is embodied in the thousands of young Marines
around the world who will celebrate their first Marine Corps Birth-
day this year. They will provide the bridge between the proud
traditions of our past and the exciting possibilities of the future.
' Ultimately, the character of the name "Marine" will be entrusted
' to their charge.
At the end of the year ahead, when we transmit to those that
follow the weIl-Iighted torch of special trust of the American
l people, let us ensure the flow is brighter - through act and deed -
' in the knowledge that all Marines truly take care of their own.
This is my charge. This is my message.
Happy Birthday and best wishes to all members of our
Marine Corps family on this 197th Anniversary.

Navy Birthday 1972
This year, for the first time, the Navy formally
honors the day on which the Continental Congress in
1775 authorized construction of ships for an American
Navy -- and thus brought into being the United States
October 13 is the 197th anniversary of the U. 5.
Navy. Those of us who serve today have inherited a
proud and honorable tradition from all those who have
gone before us. They set the standards Of victory
and excellence that we carry forward. 'Each of us has
a duty and obligation to preserve these standards for
future generations of Navymen.
I ask all persons associated with the Navy to
use the Navy Birthday as an occasion to honor the
memory of our departed shipmates -- and to dedicate
our very best efforts to the present and future
defense of our homeland.
The USC NROTC, with the help of some of
the USC coaches and athletes held a bounce for
beats Heart Fun'd marathon for 29 hours at the
Dutch Square 'shopping mall. One basketball was
kept bouncing for the entire 29 hours by our own
version of the Harlem Globetrotters. With morat
support from the Mermaids and logistics supplied
by area merchants, NROTC raised $4,500 for the
Heart Fund. The project was brainstormed by Lt.
Arnow who.stayed for the entire marathon. His
plans for next year include a 48 hour marathon with
more than $15,000 collected,

Blood Drive Returns to Armory
After all drilling and studying the midshipmen
has more to give -- blood. Each semester the Bat-
talion comes out in force to assist the Red Cross
in its Blood Drive. The midshipmen are encouraged
to donate blood, to assist in the publicity for the
drive and to aid the Red Cross in every possible
way to make the Blood Drive a success. For donat-
ing blood the midshipmen are guaranteed blood for
themselves and their immediate families whenever
they need it within the allowed period.
In spite of the scheduling difficulties which
eliminated the intra-battalion football compe-
tition, tha 72 - 73 academic year has been a
rather successful one. The volleyball and
basketball competition between platoons has
been both intensa and enthusiastic lFirst
Alpha, in fact, is favored to take it all in
Although we did not field an intramural
football team this year, the Unit did manage to
field a team to challenge the Air Force ROTC.
The football game ended in a 6-6 tie this year
and what a game it was too, as coach Joe
Yarbrough and his boys struggled against the
wind and a driving rain lwhich prevented our
potent passing gamal to score early and hold
onto the lead until the final moments. lt was at
that point that a desperate Air Force team,
with raferee assistance, managed to score and
tie the game.
Still, the brightest light of the year has
been the aggressive and Spirited Nuvy-Marine
Corps Basketball Team. Six-fcot-five inch
John Hammarer, has led our team to a 7 -
record and clinched a spot in the playoffs.
Team Captain Pete Carr and Assistant Coach
Steve Robertson provided the necessary leader-
ship and guidance that has proven invaluable
through-out the season. Able and trusted re-
serves such as Bob Sooy and Harold Fowler
come in and saved many a game during the
season. In spite of all this, however, one must
never loose sight of better things. Next year's
line-up provides a bright horizon of promise for
success in softball and football as well. So
here is to a good year post, and here is to a
good year up-coming.
; SHIP WRECK PARTIES
Tell us a story, Sargent!
Once a semester the NROTC Unit tries to
prove that not only water floats the Navy. Pine
island, the target for these parties, is situated in
the wiles of the Lake Murray area and the residents
are therefore conditioned to strahge noises and
wild looking animals. Compass and Chart Society
1 sponsored the FaII party and Semper Fidelis the
t 1 Spring.
k e A special word goes out to the Semper Fidelis
Society, for through their efforts and innovations
the most successful Shipwreck party was held on
March 3rd. Through the use of decorations and a
iive band the party was lifted to a new level of
enioyment. In addition, the artistic talent of John
Blair was revealed through his excellent posters.
Well clone Marines!
MCKGY' IOying it thick. Jim, doing what he does best.
.l- . .
Twice a year, near the end of each semester,
the Commissioning Ball is held at the Fort Jackson
Officer's Club. These serve as a formal farewell to
all seniors being sent out to the fleet, or the Corps.
The evening consists of a fine feed provided
by the Clubs kitchen and then dancing. During
intermission the Commanding Officer of the NROTC
Unit recognizes the distinguished guests and
announces the top three Midshipmen Officer billets
tor the following semester.
The ball serves a two fold role. It not only
serves to give graduating seniors an outstanding
send off, but it also gives underclassmen a chance
to practice their social etiquette.
Strong Say 5 Goodtbye
The most important purpose of the midshipman is to
achieve success in his academic pursuits. Those
midshipmen who excel in these necessary endeavors
are authorized to wear certain decorations to recog-
nize their success. The Academic Excellence Ribbon
is awarded to those midshipmen who make the Dean's
List or Honor Roll. The Academic Achievement Stars
are awarded to midshipmen on the basis of their class
standing, aptitude, conduct, and physical fitness.
For extraordinary achievement midshipmen are awarded
the Meritorious Achievement Ribbon and the Silver
Star is awarded to those midshipmen who receive a
4.0 GPR during a given semester.
First Class Cruise enables ,the midshipman
to familiarize himself with the duties of a iunior
officer aboard ship. Not only does he obtain a
working knowledge of division officer responsi-
bilities and collateral duties, he is also thoroughly
initiated into all iunior officer watch stations.
This past summer, individual USC middies
visited such places as Copenhagen, Rome, Monaco,
Turkey, Athens, Honolulu, and Tokyo as an integral
part of their shipboard training.

To give the midshipman a greater appreciation
of the flying branch of the Navy, three weeks of
2nd class cruise is spent at NAS Corpus Christi,
Texas. There a midshipman has three flights in a
11.34 trainer, the "Tenny Weeny", followed by
one hour in a 5-2 "Tracker,' and the F-9 Cougar
or T-2 Buckeye. In addition basics are given in
the use of the 45 pistol and survival techniques
for the midshipmen at the Welcoming Ball.
The Ready Room also stands by to assure the
midshipmen of something to do in the evening and
regret in the morning. One thing is assured, any-
body who is allergic to the sun should beware, it
burns there for 25 hours a day.

Atter having your head in the air at Corpus,
the Marines at Little Creek bring you right back
down to earth. At the "Creek" the midshipmon is
given an overali view of the training and complexity
that goes into preparing for and carrying out an
amphibious operation. The Riverine Operation is
a mock conflict run in conditions similar to those
in South East Asia.
Little Creek is situated near Virginia Beach,
and once again, the midshipman is afforded a
chance to tan himseif. Other pastimes included
sleeping on your rock without putting wrinkles in
it, keeping out of sight of anyone with the look of
a man searching for voiunteers, and double timing
Middies Hit the Beach.

In order to learn how to properly give orders a
midshipmun must first learn how to take orders;
this is the purpose of the third class cruise. On
this cruise the rising sophomore has a chance to
see the life of the sailor. Living with the enlisted
men and sharing in their work gives the midship-
man a better understanding of shipboard operations,
equipment, and living conditions.
