Teach us to know thy worth To sing thy praise on earth, And guard thy noble birth Valley Forge for thee. Lead us with beacon bright. Guide our steps firm and right So We may always Fight, Buff and blue for thee. When our last taps are played May thou be not dismayed. We pray as once he prayed, Valley Forge for thee. The EdiTor's Introduction It is my most honored privilege in this, my last assignment, to present to you, the Corps and the Class of 1963, a lasting memento of your years at Valley Forge. Four years have passed with many memories, both of the friends we have made and the education we have received. For us, the members of the graduating class, these past few years have been the greatest and most rewarding of our lives. Life at Valley Forge is quite similar to the life we shall lead in the near future. For those who have found life good at Valley Forge they will undoubtedly find it good in the world we are about to enter. The rewards and the penalties that we shall receive in our future education and our life's destinies will resemble those which we have attained in the classrooms and on the drill field. In this, the 1963 Crossed Sabres, we have a four-year reminis- cence of a good part of our lives that is so often referred to as the best period we shall ever live. In four years we have matured into responsible young men, prepared to meet the challenges of life. Those of us who were fortunate enough to advance through ranks have found the true meaning of accomplishment and leadership. Of course our academic achievements here were, and always will be, a very important part of our lives. The many good times spent on the athletic field learning true sportsmanship will be remembered by all. Valley Forge has played its vital role in preparing us for the future and our life's destinies. Now it is up to us to put this train- ing to good use. We have learned to study and we have learned to be gentlemen, now we must always remember to "learn as tho' your life on Earth would endless be, but live as tho' the morrow ushered in Eternity."

Bright and early the next morning our rigorous training began as the resounding cry of "Plebes', echoed across the campus. As we stood in corridors, barely clad and bewildered, we met the un- friendly eyes of the members of the Plebe De- tail. To these members of the Plebe Detail we owe our greatest respect, as they were the ones who helped us progress towards becoming worthy members of the Corps of Cadets. X'Ve were called upon, as "Plebes," to perform very un- familiar tasks. VVe learned that these tasks were the foundation for strict military bearing. Mile found too, that once this bearing was estab- lished, its maintenance was amazingly easy. l'Ve found it quite natural to want to look our best around the clock. As we adapted to our new home, we soon be- came a part of the prominent events of the Acad- emy. The dedication of Mellon Hall, our beauti- ful student union building, was a highlight among these events. This building houses the rifle range, bowling alleys, darkroom, publica- tions ofhces, company meeting rooms, hobby shop, class lounges, and the museum. Certainly all the new and different things we encountered during our first year at the "Forge" are never-to-be-forgotten incidents of our career as Cadets.

OUR "CORPORAL" YEAR 1960 . . . 1961 X'Ve returned to our Alma Mater, outwardly energetic in attacking our responsibilities, but inwardly somewhat dubious in the proper execu- tion ol this new leadership. Wfe were "old menu now and were expected to follow the example no longer, but to be the exampleg we knew we would come in closest contact with the plebes and their standard of proficiency would be up to us. This was our corporal, yearling year-the year of the little rank, great responsibility. The thirty-second year of the Academy was officially opened on September 2nd with cere- monies in the Chapel. Gradually a new Corps hardened into solidity, led by Cadet First Cap- tain John E. Slough. Corps spirit was high this year, successfully bolstering our football squad into a mighty season. Returning from Christmas Leave, we were all both shocked and grieved at the untimely death of Colonel Ytlalker, the beloved Chaplain lfor so many Corps. He was laid to rest beside the Chapel he loved. On the 23rd of January the Cadets of the Band and Company "B" were awakened and marched, donned with overcoats and slippers, to the Main Area. Price Hall, the Officers' Mess and Band Barracks, was enveloped in flame . . . soon only cindering beams and brick wastes remained of the smoldering build- ing. Those Cadets of the Band were temporarily quartered throughout the various barracks un- til permanent lodging was secured at Von Steu- ben Hall. The highlighting visits of spring, l96l, were unquestionably those of General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower and Major General VV. C. Ytfestmoreland, Superintendent of VVest Point. Both were highly impressed with the smartness of the Cadets and stated so publiclyg we had built up a reputation unequalled. Memorial Day came and our thoughts wan- dered towards next yearg who would be called back for N.C.O. School? Wfe left Valley Forge anticipating our Second Class year as sergeants. --9 .. .-:gf ,Ch " "mfr, Ima:-, at ' t 1 Y 'J I : I : : - ' i 1 il' "' 1 ja 11' nts. W3 ., ,va-I Q 30 General Dwight D. Eisenhower and General Baker stand before the beautiful Eisenhower Hall, the Oflicersl Mess. As we returned to V.F., eagerly awaiting the start of our Second Class year, we found that it was with little or no dit-hculty that we became readjusted. As in our two previous years, this one was to have some exciting moments and fond memories for all of us. Among the highlights of the year were the visit of General Dwight D. Eisenhower, the for- mer President of the United Statesg the visit of Major General YV. C. lfVestmoreland, the Super- intendent of the United States Military Academy at lfllest Point, the visit of Admiral Davidson, the Superintendent of the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, and the visit of King Simeon H, the exiled King of Bulgaria and an alumnus of V.F. Among the social highlights of the year was the usual series of Academy Dances, including the Ring Dance, I n f a n t r y and Mounted Battalion Balls, Anthony YVayne Le- gion Guard Dance, and the Graduation Ball. Another thing we all remember is the con- struction that was always going on. Younghus- band Hall was enlarged to make room for the Drum Sc Bugle Corps and magnificent Eisen- hower Hall, the new ollicers' mess building, was built and dedicated. Once again we were given the chance to show off our leadership capabilities, this time as sergeants. Some of us were permanent, others on a temporary basis. This opportunity proved to be a most valuable experience, not only in the value to us, but also in its ability to promote the desire to carry out the highest ideals of the Corps and to develop a sense of friendly com- petition and spirit. As we left the Academy once more, we were filled with a sense of achievement and pride, Yes, we were proud, not only of last year's achievements, but also of the two previous year's. lfVe were filled with desire to attain even greater heights next year in our fourth and final year at V.F.

From the constantly cooling days of September, and continuing through nature's hazards of winter, there exists at Valley Forge Military Academy two unique bodies, the secondary school and the Junior College. Performing to- gether as a unit on parade, they strive for, and have attained, since the two were first in- troduced, the reputation of a well-trained, well- turned out regiment. VVhen f'School Call" singles itself out of the familiar collection of Academy sounds each day, this military machine divides toward its individual goals. The Cadet of the Junior College bears an interesting, double responsibility. The very position of the building in which he works, as if it were alive, seems to command a calm and unquestionable position of respect atop the highest hill of the Radnor campus. Because Rosso Hall expects this reputation of respect from the Academy, every Cadet who studies there must pursue and demonstrate an attitude of respect, academic maturity, and integrity. Each year the path over which the men of the College travel to reach their classes gets longer and higher. Rich in historical tradition as a trail over which early Americans drove west to build our country, it today carries the "Yellow patch," borne by men whose destiny it is also to build our country. The increasing height of this route is due to the achievement, positions of responsibility, and quality which past classes have contributed toward the insti- tution "calmly commanding the highest hill of the Radnor campus." Because it is "higher and longer," the responsibility resting on the shoul- ders of the graduating class is a great one. As one reviews the Class of 1963, one wonders how any future class will ever make that climb that is ever growing in tradition. YVell trained as Freshmen, the Sophomore class has seen both ends of the 'fstring of re- sponsibility." It has seen the work of bygone days, and has sought to protect those hard- earned privileges. It has also seen that end of the string that lies far out ahead, from which future classes will benefit. A new enthusiasm to- wards athletics, both intramural and intercol- legiate has produced not only victories, but, to the members of the football, soccer, varsity bas- ketball, and fencing teams, has given enjoy- ment, accomplishment, and memories of "good times" through sports, opening the door to future classes. The Star List is the largest in history. The Junior College dances have been recorded as the best to date. It was doubted if anything could equal the November l0th festivities, but with spring in the air, that April night produced fun, talent, and memories. The Junior College company put on a proud performance for Governor Scranton and thousands of Pennsylvanians as they captured "Best Lines" in the Inaugural Day Parade at Harrisburg. Company, thus the junior College, took top honors at the Oratorical Contest for the second consecutive year. Not only did the win- ning cadet and his coach acquire joy, first prize, and the spotlight, but the College demonstrated its possession of talent, and Rosso Hall once again rose in height. ffionlinizcd on Page 53Q Cadets of the junior College enjoy their Autumn Dance. 36 DUNBAR BROOKS ABELL, JR.

Its place in the junior College community is similar to that ol Phi Beta Kappa in the four year colleges. In brief, it pays tribute to students who earn scholastic averages of "B" or better and who demonstrate the essentials ol good character and good citizenship. The Delta Epsilon chapter of Phi Theta Kappa is the particular organiza- tion at Valley Forge Military Junior College. This chapter elects its ollicers from the members at large and delegates to the officers the administration of the activities. The chapter is directed by a President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer. These positions are currently held by Cadets Pujals, Sanchez, Mammele, and Snyder, J. F. Bottom row: Sanchez, M., Pujals, J., Mammele, sl. Second row: Arndt, N., Conrad, IV., Steele, P., Lang, Hjjleins, F. Third row: Hopwood R.. Smith, IV., Stukitz, C., Weitz. H.

Following the lull ol Spring and Easter leaves, the college returned to wind up the string. "FU Company was first on the parade Held in more ways than one. Not only were they physically first on the green, but this year's class passed, as so many of their predecessors had, with high hopes and superior lines. Government Inspec- tion again heard such phrases as "If you can't polish it, paint itg il you can't paint it, polish it, but get it up!" Company had everything well "up." XVith the First warm days of spring, the summer camp area was buzzing with workmen hammering, stringing, surveying, and discussing the new addition that is to be made to Young- liusband Hall this season. The addition is meant to house the Junior College Company-all under one roof. The new facilities will include a reception room, a smoking lounge, typing areas, and a snack shop, all of which will give the future J. C.'s a better atmosphere, a college atmosphere, under which to work. XVith each passing year, the value of what the Junior College taught the class that made its final "Pass in Review" in June will grow. This theory has been repeated to us time and time again, from Alumni dinners to vocational semi- nars. Of course, each man will carry his own personal memories of incidents, leaves, con- versations, and happenings which took place on that four minute walk from the Harveys to Rosso Hall, of officers and tOu1'S. But the grad- uate from Valley Forge Military Junior College carries more than this for the rest of his life. lftlhether aware of it or not, he has nourished his sense of personal pride, academic responsi- bility, good manners, personal discipline, and standard of living. VVith his first VF haircut, each new cadet shed more than his high school and curly locks. VVith the acquisition of his diploma, each man gained more than an As- sociate of Arts degree. Next year the faces will change, but reveille will be the same, the parades must still meet the Valley Forge standards, the late leaves will be thought of as never coming, and the task of the J. C. classes will be the same. To keep the end ol that string in sight, to keep the reputa- tion of the Junior College on top, to build- these are the tasks of the Junior College Cadet. Y'Vhen the graduating class is dismissed, it leaves behind it a monument. There, atop that afore- mentioned summit, will sit a content, proud, acknowledged Rosso Hall. lt has sheltered a class to be long remembered. Witli their nick- names, weekend leaves, parades, formations, and studies, they have spent two years with Courage and Honor, and have Conquered. Cadets Hlilliams, F. A., and Pujals receive medals for outstanding achievement from Major Ceneral Arthin' D. Kemp of the Military Order of SVorld YVars. The First Class 1963 XVILLIAM Routnzn FLOYD, JR.

The members of the Alumni are Paul Powell, "40," Presidentg Richard H. Jarden, U42-j.C.," Chairman of thc Boardg Henry Bowes, past president, and Fred B. Leavy, past president. The Alumni represent one of the most im- portant branches of the Valley Forge family. The present distinction of Valley Forge. with its traditions, outstanding accomplishments of its graduates, in the military and professional Fields, and its acquisition of expanded physical facili- ties, is a result of vision, courage, and planning. justifiably it commands your pride without measure, and loyalty without limit. The Alumni Association is increasing in stature and maturity as evidenced by its activities and contributions to the Academy. The Alumni have been informed regularly of the l962-63 program through A'The Forge," the alumni bulletin. Area dinners have been held throughout the east, where we were able to discuss in person with your fellow alumni the Occupations Seminar, Alumni Awards, and other activities. Our alumni project this year is for the ex- panded Cadet library facilities. This is no more an ambitious project than the one for additional class rooms in Lhotak Hall, the installation of the Language Laboratory, two new science la- boratories for the Junior College, or "Operation Books." The Association is proud of its alumni and your Board of Directors are certain you will succeed in life as admirably as have your pred- ecessors. If you have caught the spirit of "The Forge" and absorbed its teachings, developed your self discipline, and demonstrated good sportsmanship, you of the Class of l963 may proudly join the ranks of the "Long Gray Line." A Seminar on Law is conducted by Arnold Biron "SES," at the Occupational Seminar. George Seybold, "SQ," Chairman of the Seminar looks on. A Seminar on Engineering is held by V.F.

E E 2 z E 2 E The Anthony Wlayne Legion Guard, com- posed of the most outstanding cadets in each rank category of the Corps, was founded by the Superintendent in 1934. Originally its membership included only cadets who were oiiicers and non-commis- sioned oflicers, but in 1951, the basis of selection was altered to permit worthy cadets in all classes and ranks to compete for the coveted appointments. Final selec- tions are based on military, academic, and disciplinary achievement. THE RIFLES The current honor guard is composed of the A.VV.L.G. Administration, A.XV.L.G. Rifles, the A.VV.L.G. Dragoons, the A.XN.L.G. Gunners, and the A.'W.L.G. Honorary Members. As a distinctive in- signia, members of the Guard wear a fourragere and a shield on the dress uni- form. Throughout the academic year, the A.W.L.G. provides guards of honor for all distinguished guests of the Academy and presents formal guard mountings and spe- cial ceremonies in the spring of the year.

Sands ik' The Band of the Valley Forge Military Academy under the competent leadership of Lt. Colonel D. Keith Feltham and Cadet George Dunkel- berger, has continued to uphold the line tradi- tions and all-around proficiency of Bands of the past. As in years past, the Band continued to offer outstanding musical presentation to the Corps of Cadets and their guests. The Band made two trips to Harrisburg this year: The annual trip to the Pennsylvania National Horse Show and the second trip for Governor William Scranton's inauguration. The Band put on a superb show at the Farm Show Building in the morning, for Mr. Scranton's formal appointment as governor. The parade that followed could be compared to no other. The Inaugural Ball was held at the Zembo Mosque that evening, and again the Band put on a display of precision drill and playing. The Band also played at the Philadelphia Academy of Music for the benefit of the Red Cross and gave two performances in Radnor: one for the classes of Radnor Senior High Schoolg the other, for the benefit of the Radnor Police Pension Fund. The Band was again privileged to play for several distinguished visitors to the Academy. Among these were Sir Ormsby Gore, British Ambassador to the United Statesg General W. C. Wfestmoreland, Superintendent of the United States Military Academyg and Rear Admiral J. F. Davidson, Superintendent of the United States Naval Academy. ' Von Steuben Hall is the home of the Band. 97 Navi fyfxf- A ACOMPANY 1'f f Cornpany Comrnamlfr Robert B. Carter First Ijezltenanfs Second Lieutenanls Craham M. Neilson First Sergeant Squires, J. R.

Harris Guidance Ojicer . Major George T. Buckwalter For the Old Cadets of "B" Company, who are accustomed to excellence, their company's success this year has not come as a surpriseg for the New Cadets, there is much to be upheld. Major Harris, this company's fine tactical oflicer, has en- listed wholehearted Cadet support from his company through his unswerving desire to see "B" Company remain the paragon of unit excellence, both academ- ically and militarily. The Cadets of Company are proud of their great "Tac- Cadet" relationship. For those Cadets of the graduating class who will be leaving the Academy and their company for the last time this spring, they have the remembrance of great satisfaction and the many enjoyable and challenging experiences of be- longing to such a fine unit to take along with them. Some have seen three sets of fresh plebes arrive and have watched them develop from bewildered young men into Cadet leaders. HBH Company boasts a regimental commander, a battalion commander, and two Cadet captains this year, among its list of "sons." Much praise is due Major Buckwalter who has undertaken, successfully, to keep the UB" Company banner flying highest over the academic board, helped out greatly by the six "B" Company Cadets who composed half of the Distin- guished Gold Star List for the first semester. Washington Hall is the attractive barracks of "B" Company.

Mitchell The men of "C" have stuck together quite well this year. The unit loyalty has been above average. The discipline has been so fantastic we have soared to new heights, which have been unprecedented in previous years. ln the beginning of the year, we started working as a group of individuals, everyone working for himself. As the year draws to a close, we find ourselves working together, striving to reach a common goal-"Best company at Valley Forge." The First Class has much to be proud of this year. For many, this will be their last year at the Forge. Mfhen they leave here they will take many memories with them. They can always rememb-er that they were the first class to use the new gymnasium for their Ring Dance. They can always look back on and be proud. The many people they have known throughout the years will long be remembered. Sincere congratulations are in order for our Tactical Oflicer, Captain Van Tuin and our Guidance Counselor, Lt. Colonel Mitchell, who have done a superior job this year, also, all the oflicers of "C" Company. Conipany's Martin Hall is a fitting tribute to a great statesman.

Oliviera The pride and precision which has long been the trade mark of a trooper, has been plainly displayed by "D" Troop during the Academic year 1962-63. The Troop owes much of its performance to the guidance of Captain William B. Kelley, our Tactical Ollicer. The troop's best friend, Colonel Eugene A. Fischer, did a splendid job coaching this year's Polo Team, and instructing us in the liner points of horsemanship. Academically we were well assisted by our Guidance Ollcicer, Captain Anthony Oliveira Cadet Frank B. Rackley, the Troop Commander, was aided by a fine group of officer and N.C.O.'s. The teamwork and loyalty displayed by these Cadets was directly responsible for the high esteem in which the Troop was held by the Corps. The 1962-63 athletic season was the most successfutl in years. The Polo Team, the pride of the Troop, had one of its finest seasons. The Intramural program saw the Troop on top in many of the sports. The Graduation Parade marked the final gathering of the 1962-63 Troop as one unit, but as each Trooper departed, there was a certain air of pride in a job well doneg something which will always hold the Troopers together in Spirit. The Troop is quartered in the west end of Hamilton Hall. w L --f f E BATTERY -f f Compmzy Com mamler Edward Schroeder Firxt Lieutenants Second Lieutenants Bruce Daniels Ross Starner Robert Chester Xklalter Howell Pierre Girond George Muller First Sergeant Supply Seregant Clerk Athletic Sergeant Motor Sergeant Mulligan, A.

Nlorrison The main purpose of the Battery has been to develop a man who has pride in himself and his work. To accomplish this we have given each cadet an equal opportunity to compete in military, academics, and athletics for honors and promotion. ln addition to these activities, each Batteryman is given additional teaching, apply- ing to military vehicles, artillery pieces and their application to our modern defense system. As a result of this additional instruction we have become adept in handling motor vehicles. Be- cause of this teaching we were able to provide transportation on M.S. weekend, and drive the ll5-miles trip to Harrisburg without a scratched fender on any of our 43 vehicles. During the course of the year, the Battery has been assigned many extra tasks. Inspite of these assignments we have been able to par- ticipate in the many extra-curricular activities offered by the Academy. This makes many Bat- terynien more active than the other members of the Corps of Cadets. The Battery, under the leadership of its ofhcers and N.C.Ofs, has accomplished more than ever before. Using the "old man" as a core, they have been able to develop the plebes into hard working, responsible leaders of the future. Mlith their education these men will be able to surpass the high standards which have been established this year. The Battery is quartered in the east end of Hamilton Hall.

Major Victor C. Infortuna Led by the best members of the company which received the award for "Highest Elliciencyu in l962, the men of have once again shown to the Corps what the real meaning of the word "unity" is. This unity is always quite apparent in everything in which they are involvedg espe- cially athletics, company competitions, and social activities. The Company's Tactical Oflicer, Captain Charles Murphy, believes that the Cadets should run the company by themselves. This system will only work when the Cadets are old enough to realize their responsibilities. Assisting the Company Commander, Cadet Gene Banco, to do this, are some of the finest and most qualified officers in the Corps. During the early part of this year, a decided increase in scholarship was evident in both the Freshman and Sophomore classes. This increas- ing academic spirit enabled twelve Sophomores and six Freshman to receive academic honors given by the Dean of the Junior College, Colonel VVilliam Carne. The honorary academic fraternity, Phi Theta Kappa, now has the most members it has had in many years. Colonel Godfrey and Major Infortuna, Company's Guidance Officers, were pleased with the results of the first semester's work and are looking forward to the Final Grades. The years, 1962-63 will always be remem- bered by the members of the Graduating Class of Company as a job well done.

They can look back upon the companys outstanding athletic record and upon the efforts of the Cadets to perpetually strive to do betterg and we must not forget the Esprit de Corps which existed throughout the year. YfVe owe a great debt of gratitude to Colonel J. Stuart Mulkerns for his leadership, and to Ensign Robert Kowalski for his counseling during the year. Also to be commended are the Cadet Officers of led by the Company Commander, Cadet Captain Lawrence Earle, who undertook the task, during "Plebe Training," to teach the new Cadets to meet the company standards, and to uphold the companys determination to never back down or shy away from a challenge. The entire company is confident that those who are to step out of the ranks to lead the way next year, will strive to better the excellent work ac- complished this year and will keep "G" on top.

Sands It seems like only yesterday that our Drum and Bugle Corps was being formed and many Cadets from all the companies of the Corps were try- ing out for it. Three years have passed though, and the strides that we have taken are almost unbelievable. ln all fields, our organization has shown a keen desire to reach the top. In the early part of this year we filled the football half-times with our intricate routines which greatly pleased our visitors and the Corps of Cadets. Later in the year, we entertained the many basketball spectators with our short, but precise, indoor shows. Wfe also have given of our time to play for the many guard mounts. The thing which greatly aided our unit this year was the addition of more members, new horns, and new tenor drums. They added much more space and sound to our group and thereby made it more efficient. Of course, the most important job of the Drum 84 Bugle Corps is to put on its superb showing at the spring parades. As always we have done this with great conpetancy and spirit. The things which I have spoken of could never have been possible had it not been for the terrific work of the members and their very loyal tactical and guidance officers. If our high standards continue to improve, as they have done, that great dream of success shall one day' come true. .

Though the team was only able to win three of seven, one with Hill ending in a tie, the victories came in the last four games and were made possible by extra practice time granted to the team by General Baker. The team was captained by Policastro who proved to be one of the best offensive players we have seen at the Forge in many years. The team used the system this year of playing a different team for offense and defense. The offensive squad was run by Shol- lenberger while Hausleiter and his teammates did an excellent job on the defensive side of the games. This two-team policy made the games this season very good because all players were fresh and able to play harder games.

F. vs. St. Joseph's In the season's opener, the Trojans ran into the very powerful and hard fighting team of St. joseph's Preparatory School. During the entire first half, St. Joeis squad dominated the play, not allowing the Trojans to score, and building up a 24-0 halftime lead. ln the third quarter, the Trojan defense got down to work and held St. Joe to one touch- down. Policastro scored the lone V. F. touch- down in this quarter with Priestley adding the extra points on an end run. Baker, Neilson, Bohrer, and Chiomento made some fine plays in this quarter also, but the powerful St. Joe defense would not allow the "Trojans" to score. The fourth quarter saw our defense holding St. Joes "Hawks" scoreless to put a good end- ing on a game that started out badly for our team. The final score was 32-8. V. F. vs. Hill After dropping their opening campaign the Tro- jans got back on their feet and played a l4-l4 tie game with Hill. Hill was able to score first, but soon after, the Trojans sent Neilson into the end zone to tie the score. Hill scored again to take a l4-7 lead at the half. Late in the third quarter, Dudley "Do- Right" Priestley, as the team called him, ran off end into the end-zone to make the final score and tie the game. The hard Trojan defense would not allow Hill to score again and the Hill defensive squad did the same for the Trojans who were trying to win their hrst game. V. F. vs. Penn Charter Although the defensive unit put on a hard bat- tle the Trojans were unable to stop a powerful Penn Charter team and lost their game, 28-O. The Trojans took the kickoff, only to lose the ball on downs. Charter moved 55 yards on ik' the next play, to our 21, and in four more plays made the score. The Trojans lost the ball on an intercepted pass after the kickoff. Charter moved quickly and after a short series of plays scored again on a 40 yard run. Again the Trojans lost the ball and Charter was able to score 6 more points. In the second quarter the V. F. offensive unit moved the ball on ground plays from our 17 to their 48 before a short pass was intercepted giving Charter the b-all. Charter was able to score just before the half making the score 28-0. In the second half, V.F. did a great job at defense. Rome, Carrigan, Gold, Maykuth, Ron- ald, Stevens and Borher were able to stop the P. C. touchdown drives. Though they lost, the Trojans put on an excellent display of defensive ball which they can be proud of. Policastro, Captain Halfback 117 V. F. vs. Germantown The Trojans were unable to get started against a very powerful Germantown team. Germantown used a passing offensive throughout the first half and were able to score twice before the half ended. ln the second half, the Trojan defense, led by Hausleiter, Pintard, and Montella, held the opposing team scoreless. In this half as in the first, the V. F. offensive unit couldn't get moving against the aggressive foe. Though the team wasn't victorious, the Hnal score being 14-O, they gained valuable experience which they could use in future con- tests. Because of the passing offense of Ger- mantown, the Trojan passing defense was strengthened considerably. Cheshire vs. V. F. The Valley Forge Trojans, looking better than they have in the past, played an excellent offensive and defensive game against Cheshire Academy. Schollenberger, Chiomento, Priestley, Bor- her, Policastro, Chester, and Fritzinger led the Forge's offensive attack. The defensive A'Death Squad" played its best game of the year. The only tally of the game was made in the first quarter. The defensive allowed only five first downs to be made against them while the offensive rolled up a total of eight. Bad luck struck the Trojans twice in the game by way of fumbles. These fumbles were key plays that aided Cheshire in gaining its victory. In the fourth quarter the Trojans made their most serious threat when Fritzinger carried for nine and Chiomento caught Schollenbergerls pass for fifteen more, putting the ball on the Cheshire twenty-six. Valley Forge lost the ball on downs and then time ran out, leaving the final score 7 to 0. The Corps can be proud of the showing made by the Trojans against a team that has defeated many college freshmen teams this year. w Chiomento catches a quick pass, and charges for the goal. V. F. vs. X"Vyoming Seminary As the football season drew to a close, the Tro- jans came to life and took a l4-0 victory over the Blue Knights of Wlyoming Seminary. The game was hard fought. In the first quarter, Gold was hit hard and was benched for the remainder of the game. The action got underway in the second quarter when the Trojans forced YVyoming to punt. Policastro made a spectacular run to the Seminary 15, which set the stage for the first touchdown. After a few plays Policastro scored the touchdown and Baker slipped in for the extra point. The Knights were only able to run two plays after the kickoff when a fumble gave the Trojans the ball. Here Schollenberger tossed a pass that put the ball on the five yard line.

Priestly uses forearm block in carrying out an end run. Priestley showed his skill by going in for six more. Baker kicked the extra point to make the score 14-0. The third and fourth quarters were hard fought. The two teams exchanged possession of the ball several times. Seminary tried hard to score, b-ut the V. F. defensive unit stopped them each time. The excellent blocking of Montella should be mentioned. Chiomento and Neilson were also key players in the touchdown drives. The entire team should be commended for its excellent job and Hghting spirit. Williamsori vs. V. F. The Trojans, unable to take advantage of many scoring opportunities, were handed a 13-0 defeat by Mlilliamson despite an excellent showing by the defensive squad. The entire game was a hard fought de- fensive battle. All attempts to score in the first quarter were stopped quickly. In the second quarter the "Forge's" defensive unit worked to perfection, stopping two touchdown drives by way of pass interceptions and stopping ground movement by breaking up many plays. The Mfil- liamson squad, however, was able to score on a pass, just before the half, making the score 7-0. In the early minutes of the second half, Mfilliamson was again able to score on a series of ground plays. The defensive unit dominated play until early in the fourth quarter when Fritzinger jumped on a loose ball. Chiomento caught a fifteen-yard pass and Policastro ran for eight more putting the ball on the eighteen. The Trojans moved the b-all to the one-foot line before they lost the ball on downs. The Trojans got the ball again on the twenty, by way of a fumble, but time ran out before they could get moving. Even if Xvilliamson was the victor, the Trojans again played a hard game and showed the Valley Forge fighting spirit. i l Cadet Priestly, fullback, begins a long run to the goal line. Admiral Farragut vs. V. F. In the Valley Forge "Army-Navy Gamef, our Trojans got the best of Admiral Farragut, 20-19. The Trojans used their ground attack to score two touchdowns and the third came on a pass. The game was mostly a ground game be- cause of the wet, muddy field. The Trojans got off to an early start when Priestley ran for the first touchdown. Farragut soon tied the score, but V. F.'s Mike Baker found a hole and ran for another six points. The Trojans third touchdown came on a pass from Policastro to Baker making the score 20 to 13. Farragut again scored but the extra point was stopped. Hausleiter led the defensive unit, aided by the Maykuths, Stevens, Montella and the rest of the unit. As usual the game was a hard gridiron battle and our Trojans, though hampered by a wet field, were able to come out on top. Charles Dey Robert Chester Ted Pintard Defensive Back Defensive Center Center 120 Neil Montella Gregory Hudowalski Mlilliam Kropff Guard Defensive Guard Tackle V. F. vs. New York Military Academy The last game of the season showed without a doubt that the Trojans of "62" were a really great team. The offensive and defensive teams played a superb game. In the first quarter Poli- castro ground out many yards by using his run- ning ability. The first score came on a pass from Schollenberger to Neilson. New York soon tied the score but after a few plays the Trojans were able to spring Mike Baker loose. Baker ran forty-five pards to paydirt and Priestley added the extra points making the score 14-6. Hausleiter, the Maykuth brothers, Montella, Hudowalski, Dey, Stevens, Carrigan, Kropif, and Chester were the big defensive men for the Trojans. Their performance in this game was the best of the year because New York used mostly pass plays because they could not move on the ground. In the second quarter, we moved the ball from our own ten yard line to their eight in five plays. Policastro, Chiomento, and Schollen- berger made this possible. Here again, Mike Baker made good for six points with Priestley adding the extra points. The score at the end of the half was 22-6. When the second half started, the Trojans lost no time in scoring. Policastro ran for six points and Neilson added the extra two. Again in the third quarter Policastro ran to the one and Schollenberger hit for the score 38-6. The fourth quarter saw the varsity watch- ing the game and getting a well deserved rest. Their last game could not have had a better ending. The season closed with a sports dinner that was enjoyed by all of the players of the varsity, junior varsity, and intramural teams. At this dinner Cadet Pintard was named Most Valuable Player for his fine work on the team's line. Priestley was named high scorer for the year and all players were awarded their hard-earned Varsity Letter. With some excellent players from this year's team returning, Captain Lord looks forward to a very successful season next year. He also com- mends the Trojans of H62-63" for a Hne season and for the spirit that they showed when play- ing their games. A proud father beams as Cadet Pintard receives Best Player Award. Cadet Policastro holds Captains Award as his father accepts Y. F. letter from Colonel Blank. 121 Iiolimn rozv: Hietty, XV., Gold, S., Low, R. Second row: Lurer, R., Schollenberger.

BASKETBALL Again this season, the Trojan Basketball Team, coached by Captain McFarland, had a successful campaign. The squads record showed them compiling a .500 record with a seven-win and seven-loss season. The team was able to down such foes as Vlest Nottingham, Wfyoming Sem- inary and Valley Forgeis traditional foe, Admiral Farragut. X'Vith the completion of Price Hall, the new gymnasium, the Corps was able to watch the basketball games and give its support to the team. Though there were some complaints about attending the games, there was a general feeling in the Corps that the games were a great enter- tainment and were generally enjoyed by the Corps of Cadets. It was believed by the team that the Corps' support aided in the winning of the close games. Low, Cold, Knecht, and Wletty were the top scorers for the season while Pintard and Gazo dominated the rebounds aided by YVetty and Howell. The Low, Gold, Knecht scoring punch was the big gun for the squad, each person having an average in the double figures for the season. The team expects to do well next season and through hard work and spirit- with the Corps' backing, they should have a fine season. 122 BASKETBALL RECORD V.F.

Perhaps the one sport that takes the IDOSK indi- vidual skill, strength, and all-around condition- ing is wrestling. For this sport there is a com- bination of team spirit and individual accom- plishment that makes it outstanding from many of the others. The Trojan matmen had a hard season and met some ol the roughest teams in Pennsylvania. VVith the able coaching of ex-Duke star, Captain Stork, and help from the team captain, Lloyd Sammons, the team had a good season though it was not a winning one. The outstanding performers were Cadets Mike Tumpson Q112j, Larry Jack 11275, Sam- mons Ql33j, Dasher Wlylly Q138j, and Chester Q145j. These men all had good seasons. The team had some fine new performers such as Hausleiter, Tierney, and Ronald who should be exalted next season after this year's experience, and they expect to have a much better season next year due to the fine junior varsity men who will be joining the varsity. The Cadets of the Forge can be proud of the hard working men on this year's squad and the fine showings they made in all of their season meets. YVRESTLING RECORD V.F.

PISTOL Led by the coaching of Sergeant Durovey, who has shot in Army Pistol Competition for many years, and its team captain, Cadet Niles Dally, this year's pistol team won many victories. Dally was high firer for the team and because of his efforts, many close matches were won. There was a great deal of competition lor top Hrers this season which made the matches very interesting because of the individual achievement possible. The top lirers were Cadets Len Smith, Moriarty, Swenson, and Mougin. In the firing for team champion, Smith came in first and Dally ran a close second. The junior champion was Hoser who is expected to do a good job lor the team next season. There were many new men on the team this year, all of whom did a line job. The new men, led by Cadets Skip Mougin, Moriarity, Hoser, and Cree, were able to save some matches by turning in high scores in the close matches. The Pistol Team has one of the roughest schedules at the Academy, meeting such teams as: West Point, Annapolis, the Air Force, and Michigan State. This meant that the team fired against teams that were really out of their class, but they did a fine job. VVC congratulate the Pistol Team on the fine showing they made this year. 124 V.F. 1143 1269 1264 1166 1289 1282 1261 1197 1193 1168 946 PISTOL RECORD Villanova .................. . . .

VVith ice still on the ground and sub-freezing temperatures outside, the Valley Forge mermen were stroking out many victories in their sched- uled meets. There was much good talent on the team this season. The freestyle relay team of Ternigan, who also swims butterflyg Young, Allison and Holmes, won many times along with Cadets Stevens, 200 yard individual med- leyg Maykuth, 100 yard breaststroke: and Betz, freestyle. The freestyle relay team members were perhaps the best individual performers, turning in first places in almost all of the swim meets. Cadet Allen did a fine job with his efforts in the difficult art of diving, getting many points for the team. The swimming team is fortunate in having Lt. Turner for their coach. He has much experi- ence and was able to coach the team through a good season. He hopes to see a good turnout for the team next season. There were many seniors on the squad this year which will leave many empty spots for next year's team. SX'V11NfIM1NG RECORD V.F.

Though it takes a great deal of conditioning and hard work, many Cadets put forth their talents to make a good team for the Trojans. The team's training started very early in the season with practice beginning in january. This early practice al- lowed the team to have a better year this year, gaining more wins than it has in previous sea- sons. The team is privileged to have Major Quinn as its coach and with his experience as CJXVQH inf! guide, the team has looked very good in the past and should continue to have good seasons in future years of competition. The track squad has for its captain this year, Cadet Neilson, who has been on the team for two years and has earned a varsity letter each season. He has seen the squad vitalized this year and emerge well ahead of many of its for- midable opponents. TRAUX SCHEDULIL 'Cadet Priestley takes the last April ..........

On March 3, the Rifle Range in Mellon Hall was the scene of the Philadelphia Inter- Collegiate Rifle Match. There were sixteen teams that competed in the all-day tournament, all of whom were capable of winning. The teams and individuals were competing for National Rifle Association QNRAQ medals and the team trophy. Our rifle team secured third place, behind the excellent teams from Penn Navy and Villanova.

There is always a good turnout for the team which makes gaining a position on the squad a great honor. The team has an able coach in Captain Lord who expects his men to hustle and really work for a winning season and good team spirit. The squad this year was filled with talent with Cadets Borher, lst baseg Policastro, outfieldg Gold, 2nd baseg and Chiomento, outfield, heada ing the team. There were some Fine new plebes who showed dexterity at the sport and aided in the team's close games by making some difficult plays. The best of the plebes were Cadets Low, Cross, Cully, Schollenberger and Fritzinger. The number one hurler on the team was Van Tuin who has been the team's best pitcher for the past two seasons.

The team had five lettermen returning this season, Cadets Carter, Brown, Sarria, Baker and Melhado and also a strong group of other veterans and new recruits. Cadets Melhado and Baker are also active mem- bers of the United States Lawn Tennis Associa- tion. This, of course, made the contest for the number-one man on the team very lively. This year's team had a tough job matching the 'AGT teams record of ten wins and only three defeats. The success of this year's team can be contributed to the fact that they had a tremendous amount of experience. The excellent coaching of Major Romine contributed greatly to the success of the team. The team had a schedule of seventeen meets this season. TENNIS SCHEDULE April .................. Radnor High School April Penn Charter School April Acad. New Church April ..

The golf team ol this season had to wait for the weather to break, but in Seasons-tO-Come, there should be an improvement in the team, due to the indoor driving ranges that are being put in the new gym. Mfith these ranges, the team should improve considerably and be able to have much better seasons. The team got off to an early start this season by having some early practice sessions in Clothier Hall under the supervision of Lt. Heise. This gave the team an advantage when the season started. Another great advantage was the excellent playing of Pagano, McClanahan, Cree and Ben- net who turned in some low scores that helped the squad win some of their close matches. Cadets Pagano and McClanahan along with many other underclassmen will be returning next season. This should mean that the team will have very successful campaigns in the future.

The members of the champion X'Vayne League teams were awarded the Intramural Cup at the all-sports dinner. If they b-ecome members of another championship team this year, they will also receive a cadet statue. The Continental League was dominated by "G" and "B" Companies. The "B" Company teams were able to win the Football and Track competitions while HG" Company was victorious in Soccer and Volleyball. The members of these teams were awarded the intramural emblem or a star if they have been on more than one team. The Senior League competition was ex- tremely rough this year. The Troop was able to Win the Football championship from "F" Company. This championship was perhaps the toughest one to win because the Troop was playing against "F" Company men who had played four years of varsity ball. They de- feated HF" Company in a game on the varsity field, 6-0. Though they didn't win football, Company was able to win the soccer and volley- ball championships. For their efforts the mem- bers ol these teams were also awarded the intra- mural emblem. The fall sports were Filled with excitment and spirit. The winning teams were very good and had to play hard to become champions since they were playing against the best the other companies could offer. NVINTER INTRAMURALS XfVhen snow hits the ground at the Forge, the intramural program continues to function al- though the teams Illtlst move inside. This year saw a great deal of competition with excellent teams coming from all companies. For the YVayne and Continental Leagues, UC" company was able to win both the table tennis and the wrestling competition. This was a great help to company "G", because it gave them many points toward company competition "A"-BASKETBAI.I. Firsl rmv: Mzlzalcski, XY., Trevison, R., Lufler. Mus- ciarella. IV., Greelv, R.

In the IVayne League, "A" company was victorious in the basketball competition, while "B" company won the swimming. The Continental League saw the same two com- panies, "A" and HBH, winning again in these two sports, respectively. The greatest competition in the Corps is found in the Senior League where the Junior College cadets show their skills. The Band came out on top in this league, winning both the basketball and table tennis competitions. The men from "F" company won the wrestling com- petition after stopping an encouraged Troop team in a rough meet. The men of "D" Troop were able to win the swimming competition very easily because of the superb team that they had. Not to be left out is Battery who won the 316th Infantry Rifle Competition this year. Second place was taken by the Troop who only followed by a slim four points. The Troopers also won the bowling competition, followed by for second place. YVith the completion of the winter sports, the teams get ready for the Spring Competitions where the competition for top honors gets roughest. The winners of all teams in the YVinter Athletics Intramural Pro- gram got the Intramural Patch to wear and in some cases a star was awarded for Cadets who had been on more than one championship team. SPRING INTRAMURALS M'hen spring comes at the "Forge," the Intra- mural Program again starts with a new group of sporting activities. This year's program was different than in previous years, with a new schedule of calls being put into effect on Wed- nesday to provide time for the various contests that were scheduled. The spring activities which included baseball, softball, tennis and track were well played by the various companies and all units had strong support. There was a Senior Lifesaving Course offered to the First Class and Junior College Cadets which was well attended by the graduating cadets. This course which stressed water safety was instructed by the Cadets of the Junior College that have passed the Red Cross instructor course. All companies had good and spirited teams for the spring intramurals. The teams were well supported by the Cadets of the units who wanted to see their teams win so they could gain points in the company competition.

These Cadets knew they had a diliicult task before them but all had a great determination of spirit. Our success as a well-disciplined Corps depended on the results of plebe training. The following twelve days were utilized by a rigorous training program, reviewing the basic rudiments of pre- cision drill, the fundamentals of ellective in- A few days later the football team arrived to begin their early trainingg they, too, had a job ahead of them with a single goal victory- victory for "The Forge." On the 27th, the Band once again sacrificed a week of its summer vacation and returned for its early drill. The Old Cadet Detail, made up of potential non-commissioned oflicers, re- turned the following morning to undergo a training program similar to that of their pred- struction, and invaluable aid of leadership tech- niques.

It was a rainy, dismal Sunday when the New Cadets arrived. For the members of the Plebe Detail, in their freshly pressed Qand wetj 'iwhitesf' this was truly a hectic day helping the new recruits, their parents, relatives and friends get oriented and organized. By five olclock in the afternoon, however, the bulk of them had arrived and were contemplating the unfamiliar surroundings and what was expected of them by their overseers-the Plebe Detail. The following morning began at 6:25, but instead of the anticipated welcoming smiles, the New Cadets were frowned atg instead of a free morning to unpack, they were hustled to and fro-khakis, haircuts, uniforms, and worst of all -orders and still more orders. Mister! Stand up! Wlipe that smirk off! Hlrinklesl This was just the beginning of the rigorous training that would go on to change their insecure looks to ones of confidence. Another Corps was begin- ning to form into definite shape. Then, on the 8th of September, the Open- ing Day Exercises were held in the Chapel with the combined audience of Faculty, New Cadet Detail, and N.C.O. Detail. General Baker pre- sented the Corps Hag to the Regimental Com- mander, Cadet Joseph Formisanog the new fac- ulty promotions were announcedg and the aca- demic year l962-l963 had begun. The Old Cadets returned the next day and re-processing was supervised by the N.C.O. Detail. They too were resigned to extensive drill, lasting for one week, to refresh their rifle precision and dis- cipline, and culminated by the provisional rank appointments and a united Corps of plebe and old Cadet alike. On the 15th our academic books were issued and two days later the Corps once again settled down to classes and a routine schedule. Class elections soon followed, the applicants having been carefully chosen by the faculty for general excellence, and the academic classes organized into effective bodies. The Honor Council was inducted at Chapel Vespers on the 9th of October. General Baker gave a brief talk on the meaning of "Honor" and emphasized the fact that this system was in the hands of the Cadets themselves. Honor is the most sacred word heard at Valley Forge and to be a member of the organization respon- sible for its application and understanding by the Corps is treasured. On the weekend of October 20th, Cadets Sabel, Vleiss, and YVilliams, F.A., attended the Columbia Scholastic Press Conference at Colum- bia University at New York, returning with a broadened knowledge both of yearbook con- The Academy Band forms the traditional V17 as The Alma Mater is played preceding 21 football game The Drum and Bugle Corpsethc Acade1ny's newest musical orgztnizatioii-plays at half-time.

Determined to put out the best annual ever, the yearbook staff was organized and progression stepped up. Tuesday, the 23rd, the fall induction of the National Honor Society took place at Vespers. The candidates, picked from a list of outstanding Cadets, were selected for exemplify- ing the four cardinal principals upon which the society is based: Scholarship, Leadership, Char- acter, and Service. Because of the intense com- petition for membership, the National Honor Society has always remained highly respected by all. The first Band and Glee Club Concert of 1962 was held on Sunday, October 28, in Thomas Hall. The Band played various, enjoyable selec- tions and the Glee Club opened with its tradi- tional singing of 4'Spirit of the Forge." This was the first opportunity for most new Cadets to really appreciate the excellence of both organizations. The Junior College had its Hrst social event of the year, a delightful dance, on Novem- ber l0th. Soon other dances, both at Valley Forge and neighboring schools, followed suit. On the 15th of November, members of the Junior College and First Class attended the an- nual Occupational Seminar and discussed vari- Regimental Inspection-a weekly event in the life of each Valley Forge Cadet.

Once again, reveille sounded at 5:00 A.M. on Saturday, November Ili, lor the annual lall Military Science TVeekend. The mission of the 'XVeekend was to hold small unit tactics training at Valley Forge Park, but as the Corps em- barked by bus and truck the rain fell. The Cadets returned to the Academy at noon and instruction was resumed in Thomas Hall, cover- ing first aid, communications, and atomic war- lare. Recognition Day, probably the proudest day in the life of the New Cadet, came that YVednesday, the 21st ol November. The life of "squaring," cadet ofhcer saluting, and 'lchin wrinklingm came to a halt as the "Old Men" went up and down the plebe ranks, congratulat- ing them lor their endurance. Smile! Smile! Thanksgiving Day fell on the following morni ing and the newly received Cadets joined the Old Cadets on their first leave with their parents. The annual Football Dinner was held in the Cadet Mess on the 28th, and those Cadets attending were delighted with a delicious candle- lit dinner. The lall intramural awards were presented to those companies winning the vari- ous intramural athletic Championships. The beautiful Christmas Vesper Service was once again enjoyed by the Corps on the 27th, as the Choir joined with professionalist harpists, cellists, and a talented soprano in presenting various Christmas classics. This was truly a beau- tiful musical program. December 16th rolled around and the gold star Cadets departed in many directions for Christmas Leaveg the following alternoon, on the 17th, the silver star Cadets left.

On the sixth day of January, by Five o'clock, the entire Corps once again returned from Christ- mas Leave. They came back ready to settle down for the long winter ahead. Everyone had the attitude of working hard and not "slacking off" because semester exams loomed in the future. Once again faces of bewilderment entered the hallowed Main Gate as the mid-year plebes ar- rived. Once again the orientation process was resumed but in a short time these Cadets Hknew the ropes." For the Cadet oflicers it was again a gratifying experience to see them advance through proper leadership. Only two days after our return from leave, the annual Alumni Association Dinner for mem- bers of the Junior College Sophomores and First Class was held. Again it was time for the old Grey Line to exchange experiences with those of the present. At each table there were Alumni and the actual fact of leaving the "Forge' in a matter of months sadly entered our minds. The night drew to a close as Cadets and Alumni mingled among each other, and it was truly an experience to be remembered by all. On Tuesday, the 15th of January, the Corps was honored to be invited to act as an Honor The Annual Ring Dance held this ycar in new Price Hall, is always a gala affair. Members of the Corps of Cadets board a special train at the Wayne station. One of the highlights of the year l963 was the Inaugural Parade for Governor VVilliam XV. Scranton at Harrisburg. This was an occasion which the Corps will long remember. On Monday, January 14, our Fine march- ing band departed for Harrisburg by bus. Parts of "D" Troop and "EH Battery also lelt at this time. They spent the night at lndiantown Gap Military Reservation in preparation for the parade. These units returned to the Forge on Wlednesday. On Tuesday, the day of the parade, the re- maining members of the Corps of Cadets marched into Ylfayne and boarded a Special train. By 10:40 A.M., the Corps was headed toward Harrisburg. On the train, the Corps removed their parade equipment and relaxed in preparation lor the parade to come. Before arriving in Harrisburg, the Corps was served box lunches. YVhile the train was put on a siding in Harrisburg, the members of the Cadet Corps again put on their overcoats and Cross belts and were then marched to the staging area from which they would start the parade. The Valley Forge Military Academy Corps of Cadets was given the privilege of leading the parade. Cadets leave train at Harrisburg to march to the parade staging area. i s The Academy Band leads the parade, following the Governor. The Governor was sworn in at noon with the Academy Band taking part in the proceed- ings. The entire proceedings were televised and broadcast. The Corps looked exceptionally well in this parade, as they always do on special occasions. After the parade was over, the Cadets once again boarded the train and relaxed until their arrival in VVayne, where they again formed up and marched back to the Academy. Lt. General Milton G. Baker, Superintend- ent of the Academy, served as Chairman of the Inaugural Committee and was host at a dinner for the new governor at the Penn Harris Hotel prior to the Inaugural Ball. The Academy Band, under the capable di- rection of Lt. Colonel D. Keith Feltham, pro- vided music lor the swearing-in ceremony and at the Inaugural Ball.

The next day, February l6, was started with the early reveille traditional for an M.S. Field Training, only this year it was held on the post. The various sections were broken down into groups and were trained in different areas of instruction by the use of movies and actual demonstrations. The entire day proved to be quite prosperous for everyone. Once again dance "sign-upsi' went out in preparation for the Mounted Battalion Dance which was held on Saturday night, February l6. As usual the girls looked beautiful in their formal gowns, and the dance will be long re- membered by all members of the Mounted Bat- talion. To bring this wonderful week of events to an end, the Band and Glee Club presented their third concert of the Academic year. As always, the Band was superb and the night was enjoyed by both Cadets and visitors. The Mounted Battalion dance is always enjoyed and well-attended. 115111 155' Portrait of the late General Arthur Bass, presented to the Academy by General Baker, hangs in the library. February 20 was a big day in the eyes of the First Class because that was the day they de- parted on a special four-day leave for the pur- pose of college visitation. This was a chance for the First Classmen to have an interview and also see the colleges. VVhile the First Classmen were away, the Freedoms Foundation held its Annual Convocation in Thomas Gymnasium on February 22. On the post for this occasion was television's Perry Mason and many other dis- tinguished guests. On March 7, the First Class and Junior College attended the Fifth of series of lectures on "Democracy in Action" by Dr. Korn. Again Dr. Korn delivered a most interesting and profit- able speech. Once again the Corps was treated to a combined Glee Club Concert by the Epis- copal Academy, The Hill School, and Valley Forge. Wfith the weather getting nicer, thoughts were turning homeward. Luggage was drawn, the turn-ins taken care of, and the Corps de- parted for home on Spring Leave. PASS IN REVIEW As the end of the year approaches. great interest is taken in watcliing the unit competition score- board. 150 Spring That great furlough, Spring Leave, terminated on the 24th of March, when once again cadets swamped the local terminals. The Academic year of 1962-1963 was coming to a close, and for some 250 First Classmen it would be the end of all high school life. VVith the budding of the trees of spring, a new parade season was ushered in. Yvith the parade season came other spring activities: Military Stakes, Govern- ment Inspection, Parents' lftleekend and a host of special reviews honoring guests of the Acad- emyg and Finally, Baccalaureate Sunday and Graduation Day. Barely a day passed after Spring Leave be- fore once again the graduating classes and the Junior College Freshmen attended another 'ADemocracy in Action" lecture, presented by that extremely interesting speaker, Commander Kelly, This was the last lecture of the series in which many vital aspects of Democracy had been covered: its problems, its blessings, its motiva- tions. All who had attended these lectures felt they were a very informative and important part of their education at Valley Forge. On Saturday, the 28th, classes were con- ducted all day, making up for the Special Easter Leave approaching in April. Drill was con- ducted as usual, early in the morning, and the Academic Department took over from 9:45 until 4:00. That night the Anthony VVayne Legion Guard held their annual ball, the "Rope Dance," in Mellon Hall. A gala affair, it was made more resplendant by the Kaydets Dance Band. The traditional "Taps" was played at midnight, and the Cadets reluctantly escorted their dates to the Chapel Gate. On the following Tuesday, the Baron Von Steuben Society, the local chapter of the As- sociation of the United States Army, held its induction of new members at the Vesper Service. A stirring speech was made by Colonel Hess, a graduate of VVest Point, and Chairman of the Mathematics Department. Those newly received into the Society had been accepted because of their great interest in the United States Army. These inductees will be leaders of the organiza- tion next year. On April G, Saturday, classes were held again and the first baseball game, a home game against Bordentown, was played. Palm Sunday, the 7th of April, was literally a red letter day on several calendars, for this day saw the induction of the most outstanding Cadets of the Corps into the Order of Anthony VVayne. "Born out of firef' this award was the first given to Valley Forge Cadets for work "above and beyond the call of duty," and re- mains today as a proud symbol of duty. Lt. Colonel Mitchell and Captain Van Tuin were also inducted into the Order. That night, the Band and Glee Club again gave a stirring per- formance. The following Wednesday, the former group held a recording session sponsored by the Alumni Association. On Thursday, the llth of April, the Corps left the Academy for Easter Weekend and re- turned again on the 15th, ending the last ex- tended leave before the end of the year. At Vespers, Tuesday night, the National Honor Society held its second induction of mem- bers for the l962-63 year. As opposed to pre- vious years, the members to be inducted were chosen by the Academic Faculty alone, on their Scholastic Merit, Citizenship, and Leadership. Hardly a day passed in the calendar when something of importance was not scheduled. On the 20th of April, the Military Science Depart- ment held their annual Military Stakes competi- tion. This Corps-wide competition was set up for both the individual and the company. Events ranged from a comprehensive examination for all cadets to grenade throws, mortar and machine gun assemblies, obstacle courses, first aid, and map reading. These problems were tackled by select company teams. Counting a substantial percentage on Company Competition and deter- mining the winners of the Marshall Baker Award, the events were attacked with great determination. On the same day, the Valley Forge Glee Club traveled to Washington, D. C., and the Mount Vernon Seminary. Each year the girls' During Military Stakes, Cadets assume correct machine gun firing position. Captain Murphy gives detailed explanation of 'Davey Crockett" missile.

On VVednesday night, the 24th of April, the annual Publications dinner was held in the Cadet Mess. After a good meal and the cus- tomary round of speeches by the various key men of the faculty, and the eulogies by the editors of both Cadet publications, the induc- tion of new members into the Quill and Scroll Honor Society took place. This society is an international organization of school journalists and members must be qualified academically as well as having contributed substantially to the Academy publications. Government Inspection was held on Friday, April 26, and as usual, the Corps put on an impressive review for the members of the United States Army inspection team. The 27th of April, a Saturday, was a hectic day for everyone in the Corps. The Patrick Henry Forensic Society was levied with the greatest burden of their debate schedule-the Invitational Debate, sponsored each year by the Society. Over a dozen schools participated in debating the national topic: "Resolved, that the United States should help establish a Com- mon Market for the Vlfestern Hemispheric Na- tions." The anxiety of these rigorous few hours by the debators was shared by the Corps and they awaited the final totals with expectation. Also, after an early morning drill session, the Corps was photographed and photographedg there were the Company pictures, intramural pictures, class photographs, club photographs, and still more photographs. By the time that day had spent itself, few in the Corps ever wanted to see a photographer again. Again, as for many years, the Corps of Cadets honored the Military Order of the World VVars with a Guard Mount and a Regimental Review on May 2nd. At this time the Order presented a medal, in memory of its heroic dead, "To an outstanding member of the Graduating Class." The following night, a very impressive and entertaining concert was presented to the Corps by the Orpheus Club of Philadelphia. This is a concert that is looked forward to each year by the Corps and this year gained more devotees from the plebe members of the Academy. Sunday, the 5th of May, brought another distinguished speaker to the Chapel Pulpit, Major General IV. C. Vllestmoreland, Super- intendent of the United States Military Academy at VVest Point. General Westmoireland's Chapel talk this year was of extreme interest to the Valley Forge Corps of Cadets. The subject matter of his talk was our beautiful Chapel windows, what they stand for, and what in- spirational message they have for each one of us. Immediately following Chapel, a Regimental Review was held in his honor. Another review was presented on May 9th for the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States. The members of this organ- ization were honored with a dinner in the Oflicers' Mess that evening. The annual Spring Festival began on May llth with a Regimental Parade and the visita- tion of the Academic classes by the Cadets and their parents, followed by a Band and Glee Club Concert. The afternoon's activities began with the long-prepared-for Gymkhana. In this event, the individual gymnastic ability on the mats and high bar was demonstrated as well as an impressive mass gymnastic drill. Gymkhana was followed by a Guard Mount by the mem- bers of the Anthony Vllayne Legion Guard, and Spring Festival offers thrills on the high bar. 154 a Retreat Parade. Leave with parents followed. This was Saturday-Valley Forge's "Fathers Day." The next day, the Academy joined with rest of the nation in its traditional celebration of Mothers' Day. General Baker spoke in Chapel on the importance of onels mother, and then the Corps of Cadets put on a parade with their mothers as the honored guests. Enjoyed by parent, guest, and Cadet alike, this annual event will remain as one of the greatest high- lights of the year. Almost immediately after the festive week- end, the Academy was honored with the visit of the Governor of Pennsylvania, William VV. Scranton, and other distinguished members of the Governors staff. General Dwight D. Eisen- hower was also present on this day. The Anthony Wayne Legion Guard presented a formal Guard Mounting which was followed by a Regimental Review and a dinner in Eisenhower Hall. On the 21st of May, Bishop Oliver J. Hart was tendered a Retirement Parade and after- wards was guest of General Baker at a dinner in the Oflicers' Mess. There were also many other distinguished guests present to honor Bishop Hart. On the 24th and 25th of May, the Com- panies decked out their barracks with banners, welcoming back the Class of 1938. This was Homecoming Day of Alumni Weekend at the "Forge" and those returning were greeted en- thusiastically by the Corps. The Cadets met 'with their predecessors, and the young Alumni surveyed with pride both the improvements to the Academy's campus, and the development into leaders of the young men they once knew as Ustripling plebesf' Of course, the Corps honored the Alumni with as fine a parade as was possible, for these men knew what good precision was. For many, this was the first parade during which they sat as spectators rather than marching as participants, and realized what a spectacular parade was really like. Class Day Exercises were held in the Chapel on Sunday, May 26th, and on Tuesday, the 28th, members of the Anthony Wayne Legion Guard, the Band, the Troop, and the Battery gave an impressive review and Guard Mount at the Devon Horse Show. On the 29th of May, the Academic Final Examinations began. This was the last chance for the members of Graduating Classes to raise their grades before leaving for college. The exams would continue for two more days, broken by the impressive ceremonies held on May 30th, Memorial Day, in honor of those former mem- bers of the Corps who had "paid the highest price to be called American." Finally, Baccalaureate Sunday arrived and alter General Bakers inspiring sermon, the memb-ers of the Corps of Cadets got into their belts for the last time together as the solid, im- pressive Corps of 1963. "Move off to the parade Held!" was given by the Regimental Commander for the last time, in fact, everything that the graduating class did was their "last time" at the Forge-the last time for the sword, the rifle, the sabre, the "Officers Center," the "Sound- Members of the Corps of Cadets and their parents enjoy the Gymkhana on Parents' Hleckend. 155 General W.

That night, Thomas Hall saw the splendor it had not seen since last year in June-the Graduation Ball.

On Tuesday, June 4, l963, the long lines of hatless graduates Filed into Thomas Hall for Commencement Exercises. From the "As, to the "Z's,H the slow and emotional presentation of diplomas progressed.

ROSSO HALL Junior Colle e academic building ik' During this year of 1962-63 the College Freshmen have set new standards in both the military and academic aspects of the Valley Forge Military Junior College. This year has seen a greater number of Junior College Freshmen on the Star Lists and in the Phi Theta Kappa Society. This is the direct result of more study and the continuing helpful guidance b-y Colonel Godfrey and Major Infortuna, as well as our Dean, Colonel Carne. In the military aspect, the Freshmen of "F" Company have been striving to place their Company "on top." Yvith the help of the men of the junior College from the Band, Battery, "D" Troop, this will be done. It was a great honor to take "Best Lines" at the Harrisburg Parade. This year has been most enjoyable for those concerned, from the iirst anxious moments of plebe system to the welcome handshakes at Recognition Parade. This class is looking forward to their return in September as the Sophomore Class of the Junior College. mmm:--P-MM H ., , A--f-W Bottom row: Brown, Beck, J., Ronnigan, E., Fox, R..

Santoro The importance ol the Second Class Year to the conscientious student has been most formidably met by this yearls Second Class in study, Corps leader- ship, and energetic participation in extradcurricular activities. As young members of society who are gradually experiencing a more and more complex organization of life, we have realized the significance of our present attitudes and actions, and are taking positive strides into the future. From our present body of students will come the First Classmen of next year's Corps who will compose a group ol men who will be challenged with even steeper walls to scale. This challenge, which has been met most success- fully in the past years, will be a heavy burden on the First Classmen-to-be. Realizing the importance of meeting this overall challenge, we of this year's Second Class look forward to next year with a sincere hope that we will b-e remembered as the best the "Forge" has ever seen.

It consisted of last year's plebes returning to assume new responsibilities and this year's plebes who had to become accustomed to a new way of life. Since that time, through constant effort, we have become a competent and eflicient group and have pursued our goals to the best of our ability. It is in the Third Class year that the future leaders of the Corps are determined. VVe have realized the importance of hard work and have ably demonstrated this realization. The Third Class has worked hard militarily and has good representation on the Anthony Wayne Legion Guard to attest to this. Academically, the Third Class has done well. There were many happy faces when the Star List came out in November and January, the reward for proficiency and hard work in Academics. VVe have also made an impressionable record in athletics and in the years to come we certainly will keep this record. Thus throughout thc year we have proved ourselves in every field. 9 THE FOURTH CLASS Bottom row: George, R., Manos, J., Holt, T., Sinclair, R., Dunne, G., Jauer, V.. Elder, J., Siegal, R., Larsen.

Vice-Presidem Secretary . Trcas u re V . Starting anew as Fourth Class plebes has been an adaption from our "civilian lifeu that we will never forget. The hustle and bustle of that first day and the kind consideration and helping hand of the New Cadet Detail was a great experience. YVe can remember the lurking thought of a whole year of this life, and it seemed incredible. Some progressed well and others were lost along the way. Classes began soon, however, and things soon began to fall into a well-planned schedule. Wle became busy with our subjects and they all became interesting with help from wellvtrained teachers and excellent facilities. Everyone worked hard and we soon acclaimed one of the largest Star Lists in the Academyls history. XN7e found ourselves busier in the oncoming months, but took time to indulge in athletics and extra-curricular activities. This year was busier than any other in our young lives, but it proved to be more worth-while than any other year has ever been. OFFICERS . . . . . . . Randolph XV. Larsen . . . Thomas R. Lche, jr. . . . Charles L. Sharp, Jr. . . David A. Larsen The new addition to the library, a gift of the Alumni Association, af- fords new study and reading area. First Classmen begin early to con- sult with Lt. Col. Nicholson, Di- rector of Guidance, on colleges and requirements. A guided tour of Valley Forge Park for all Cadets was reinstated this year. Here, Lt. Hackett, a former park ranger, lectures to Cadets outside Washington's Head- quarters. 168 The library annex extends Shannon Hall to the west. The first "section rise" of the 1962-1963 aca- demic year was given at 8:00, September 17, two days after book issue and the usual dry- run of classes. There was little altered in pro- cedure from the previous year-school call sounding at 7:50 and recall from the eighth class period at 3:55, with intermediary classes having forty-five minutes of instruction. The academic stations remained steadfast with the Math Department headquarters in the north wing of Shannon Hallg the English Department, the west wingg the Science Department, the east wingg the Language Department in McCloskey Hall and the History Department in Lhotak Hall. Time was allowed for the New Cadets to get adjusted to the various localities and for all to be acquainted with their complex sched- ules. But the real complexity fell upon Colonel Rickert and his staff who were in charge of the placement of eleven hundred Cadets with eleven hundred different schedule arrangements. The system of "A" and "B" sections was continued and more highly accelerated courses were offered for those who were prepared academically. The S.M.S.G. Mathmatics Was again extended, allowing those qualified to take Intermediate Mathematics QAlegbra ID in this accelerated program they had known before in Algebra I and Plane Geometry. Also, outstand- ing Fourth-Classmen were offered an advanced course in English, emphasizing not only gram- mar but literature appreciation and composi- tion construction as well. An additional wing to the Library was pre- sented to the Corps for its facilitation by the Alumni Association. Not only does this new addition allow for a greater volume and organi- zation of books, but also provides more attrac- tive and spacious Cadet study space. In addi- tion to the new Library wing, other academic building improvements include an indoor, pro- tected hallway for McCloskey Hall. Class elections for the Junior College Sophmores, First, Second, and Third Classes were held October 45 the Junior College Fresh- men and Fourth Classmen held their elections immediately following Christmas Leave. The following were elected presidents of their classes: Cadets Jaime Pujals-Junior College, lfVilliam Floyd-First Class, David Knecht- Second Class, Robert Baugliman-Third Class, Randolph Larsen-Fourth Class. Although not a military distinction, to be chosen to lead one's class is a great tribute from one's fellow classmates. The annual Occupational Seminar for the Junior College and the First Class was held on Thursday afternoon, the l5th of November, at Mellon Hall. After an inspiring speech by Mr. George Seybolt '32, chairman of the Seminar, the Cadets met with the various successful alumni to discuss various vocational questions. The Cadets who took advantage of this invalu- able opportunity will look back on this occasion as one of their Cadet highlights. On Saturday, Octob-er 20, the Second Class- men had one of the greatest challenges of their academic life-the Preliminary Scholastic Apti- tude Test. The results achieved on this test showed each Cadet his strengths or weaknesses and tentatively allowed his guidance counselor to evaluate his possibilities of entering the col- lege of his choice. The first Star List was published follow- ing the first marking periodg this was a new policy enabling advanced preparation for those Cadets receiving gold or silver stars to leave early for Christmas Leave. Thirteen Cadets be- came entitled to wear the paragon of excellent academic achievement-the Distinguished flargej Gold Starsg some thirty-Hve followed with supe- rior fsmallj Gold Starsg and slightly more earned Silver Stars. All in all, the first marking period showed a level of academic achievement unsur- passed in Valley Forge's thirty-four year old history. Gold Star Cadets left for Christmas Leave on the sixteenth of December, Silver Star Cadets on the seventeenth, and the Corps fol- lowed on the eighteenth. Mid-term Hnals were to greet us upon Christmas Leave's termination instead of having a great exam tension before leave, as was the case several years ago when trimester finals were administered immediately preceding vacation. A class in Advanced Placement English studies the mechanics of poetry with a Cadet leading the discussion. 1 -avi ,, , .,.., fig - qf2 ,rtf .,RvS i 1 I 1 I f a Q n n q Q llllfwdlllll Qgegfs lllllll l fa, il" N157 Frequent exhibits, covering many subjects, are shown each year, rang- ing from one on Science fabovey to one on Shakespeare fleftj. . c,.,, ,,i,. W... . ,vwamimaw m The month of January, 1963, began on a sad note when members of the Corps of Cadets re- turned to the Academy after Christmas Leave and learned of the death of our former Dean, Brigadier General Arthur YV. Bass. General Bass had served the Valley Forge Military Academy for twenty-seven years before his re- tirement in 1961. The Patrick Henry Forensic Society has been putting in some heavy practice, debating with other schools, a procedure which was begun this year under the able direction of Lt. Heise. This year's Dunaway Debate promises to be a great one with the extra practice which the members of the Society are getting. During the time since their return from Christmas Leave, the Corps had been studying hard for the First Semester examinations which began on Monday, the 28th of january and continued for three days. Following the ex- amination, the members of the junior College were given an 'ilind of Semester" Leave of four days. On Friday night, February l, a Special Dean's Assembly was held, starring two mem- bers of the teaching staff of the Academy, Colonel Charles Dayhuff and Lt. Col. Alfred Sanelli. These gifted men gave the Corps of Cadets an illustrated, dramatized talk on the Battle of Gettysburg. lt was an event that will be long remembered by everyone who was there to hear it. The following Sunday, the Corps heard from another member of the faculty, Colonel joseph tl. Esrey, Chairman of the Department JL., of English, as their Chapel speaker. On the following Monday, the members of all Honor Societies were privileged to hear Dr. Kenneth M. Setton, Director of Libraries and Professor of Medieval History at the University of Pennsylvania, give a talk on "University Life, Six Centuries Ago." His talk proved that through the ages, students have not changed much in their attitudes toward studying and even in those dim ages, were very cryptic when they wrote home to their parents, asking for money and reporting grades and progress. About this time, Colonel Xflleidener, Dean of Academics, released information concerning the Summer Science School. All science courses are offered in this program and full credit is given in the courses. They are a group of well- planned programs designed to give each student the chance to develop intelligent, orderly think- ing in an intellectual, stimulating atmosphere. These courses will be conducted in small, under- twelve classes and in this way, the student will be able to cover more than the basic college requirements, giving him an added advantage when he takes similar, more advanced courses in the early college years. On February l5, the annual Oratorical Contest was held. This year, the theme was "Great Moments in Dramatic Literature." The subject matter of the speakers ranged from Shakespeare through Melville to Alan Paton. All speakers are to be credited with good performances and especially the winners, Cadets Raser of 'TH Company, Pine of "A" Company, and Giles of the Band. Oratorical Contest winners, Cadets Pine, XV. B., Raser, R. L., and Giles, R. C. 170 Cadet Third Classman Rob studies his literature homework during evening study hall. At a yearbook conference at the University of Pennsylvania, Cadets Kob and Larsen, of next year's stall, learn more about production. Late in the following week, on Mfashing- ton's Birthday, the Freedoms Foundation held its annual Convocation in Thomas Hall. This organization, dedicated to the cause of Free- dom through Liberty, Justice, and Opportunity, saw fit to honor two persons at Valley Forge Military Academy: Colonel David Gardiner for American History, Commander R. E. Jones, for his Chapel Sermon and Cadet Randall S. Pitch- ford for his essay on Freedom. Cadet Pitchford was given the Nathan Hale Youth Award and the George Vllashington Honor Medal, as well as a cash prize of jiioo. During the period from the twentieth through the twenty-fourth, the members of the First Class were given a weekend in which to visit colleges and have interviews concern- ing their prospective admission to these colleges, On Friday, March l, the annual Dunaway Debate was held. The topic for this year's debate was "Resolved: That the United States should take aggressive action against Cuba in order to strengthen the Mfestern Hemispheres stand against Communismfi The debate was very spirited with both sides expressing good points, but in the opinion of the judges, the Affirma- tive Team was the winner, and Cadet -Iewett, the winning speaker and winner of the Dun- away Medal. Saturday, March 2, saw the next session of the College Entrance Examinations and dur- ing the following week, the National Educa- tional Development Tests and the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Tests were ad- ministered to the Third and Second Classes respectively. On the 13th, the Gold Star Cadets l Education takes on all aspects at VF, Cadet Raser practices the intricacies of choir conducting. left for Spring Leave, followed on the lllth by the Silver Star Cadets. The remainder of the Corps of Cadets left for home on Friday, March 15. YfVith the end of Spring Leave on the 24th of March, the Cadets looked forward to one more Leave at Easter and then the Graduating Classes looked forward to that one important day when they would leave the Academy to go on to greater days in college. On two Saturdays, March 30 and April 6, regular academic classes were held to allow the Corps of Cadets to have the Leave over the Easter Holidays. VVith this Leave over, the National Honor Society held its Spring Induc- tion during Chapel Vespers on April 16. Cadets are elected to this organization through their Academic efforts of Scholarship, Citizenship, and Leadership. It is the Society which repre- sents the highest Academic achievement of the Cadets of the Corps. Although Military Science is a separate set of courses, it is an Academic subject at the Academy and figures in all averages. On Satur- day, April 20, the men of the Corps had their chance to show, in practical application, what they had learned in the classroom in the courses in Military Science. The winning teams in these practical problems scored points for their com- panies and the Cadets with the highest scores were the winners of the Marshall Baker Award for Military Proficiency in the Military Stakes. About this time, the trips to Valley Forge Park, suspended during the winter, were re- sumed, and on Mfednesdays, the remaining com- panies went by bus to that famous shrine of 171 A Cadet of the Third Class removes cultures from autoclave in preparing an exhibit for Biology, On Parents' YVeekend, Guidance Depart- ment exhibit graphically shows colleges to which First Classmen have been ac- cepted. l778 where' they visited the museum, the Chapel, and VVashington's Headquarters. This was a different kind of education than that taught in the classroom, and the Cadet was given the opportunity to realize at first hand the historical aspects of this great Revolutionary campground. Also, in April, the VVashington Irving Literary Society announced a new award, the Vare Award, to be given for an essay, poem, or play entitled: "Valley Forge Military Acad- emy's contribution to the continuance of the American Heritage as evolved at Valley Forge 1777-78." This award was presented through the courtesy of Mr. Edwin H. Vare, a friend of the Academy. Also at this time, the members of the XfVashington Irving Society began collect- ing good selections of Cadet writings to be published later in the spring in The Sketch Book. On April 24, a cool spring night, the edi- tors, writers, typists, and other workers of the two Academy publications, the Crossed Sabres and the Legiorzmzire, were honored at the Pub- lications Dinner in the Cadet Mess. General Medenbach, Colonel Mleidener, Colonel Esrey, and the Advisors and Editors of the publica- tions spoke briefly and then the new members of the Quill and Scroll Honorary Journalism Society were inducted.

This year, the Academy teams of Cadets Knecht-Iewett and Bryant-jarden, hnished in fifth place. Great tribute is to be given to the members of the Society and to Lieutenant Heiseg both spent long hours in practice and research to present a good debate. At the beginning of May, the Academy was pleased to receive the report that two mem- bers oi the Second Class had been honored by the National Council of Teachers of English with achievement awards-Cadets Colaciccofand l'Vendt. Spring Festival was held on May ll and 12 and the Academic Departments were visited by Cadets and their parents, to talk with the teachers and to see the Special Project work of the members of the Corps. These projects ranged from Term Papers and Special Re- ports to drawings, maps, diagrams, and models in the Language, History, English, and Mathe- matics Departments. In the Science Depart- ment, the projects took on the more compli- cated aspect of showing, through the use of models, actual subjects, and Hne drawings, the complications of Modern Science as it is studied in the classroom. The Biology Department, in particular, had an outstanding group of ex- hibits which included the growing of cultures, the hatching of ducklings in an incubator, the growth of plant life under varied-colored lights, and many models of life, both human and animal. Also, at the Spring Festival, the Guidance Department was pleased to announce that over l26 Cadets of the First Class had been accepted in colleges all over the United States, at this date. The Guidance Department, under the direction of Lt. Colonel Everard Nicholson, which has come into its own as a separate de- partment in the Academic Department only in the last few years, is to be long remembered for the great assistance it has given all members of the Graduating Class in their quest for college admission. On the 18th of May, the final series of College Entrance Board Tests were given, and on the 29th, the Final Examinations for the year l963 were begun. These examinations lasted for three days, broken by Memorial Day, and on Tuesday, june fl, 1963, the Graduating Classes marched to Thomas Hall for Commence- ment Exercises-those exercises which ended the Junior College and high school studies and which began the higher education of college. aiwujlig Fa-m.,,' 5 ' Fi2 viii? if' SYQWM Hifi"-ii? q'WT51:Y"Y' ' f D I I I Q D v 51521115 ' e 'M Qvn.-Pia 'I1 I xl IIUNIIR SIICIETIES AND CIRGANIZATIUNS 174 Springtime on Continental Drive.

"Scholarship,', the main requirement in gaining admission to the Society, must be met success- fully by all Cadets who seek admission. However, the other three qualifications must also be evident. Serving as the highest of the school's honor societies, the National Honor Society members are known and respected by all. The recognition of being Society members of the National Honor Society will surely be prevalent in the minds of the members when remembering their years at Valley Forge. The chapter at the Academy is named in honor of Eric Fisher YfVood, Class of 1937, who was killed in action December l7, 1944. Formal induction ceremonies are held twice during each academic year at Chapel Vespers. At this year's Fall Dinner Meeting a panel discussion on "Character and Service" was led by the Rev. Robert Matherly, minister of the Lower Merion Baptist Church, Bryn Mawr, and at the Mfinter Dinner Meeting, the annual "College Bowlv quiz contest was conducted, with prizes lor the high-scoring members.

The Baron Von Steuben Military Society is the Valley Forge Military Academy chapter of the Association of the United States Army. This year's faculty advisor, Captain Murphy olf the Military Science Department, has done much to make the society the most active at the Academy. The Society exists to increase military skills, gen- eral military knowledge, and the prestige ol the U.S. Army, within the Corps of Cadets. Among the many activities of the society was the attending of the Association's National Convention in lVashington, D.C. lt was through the grace of our Superintendent that the three society members were able to attend. Another success of the Society was the presentation of a vivid description of the famous Civil lVar Battle at Gettysburg. Other activities of the year included lectures by faculty ol'l'icers on their personal experiences in Viet Nam, lectures on such ai propos topics as insurgency, guerrilla warfare, and counted insurgency, and a trip to Gettysburg where they saw, firts hand, how that great battle was fought. All in all, with Mr. Pujals as our Chapter Captain, the Baron Von Steuben Military Society has turned out to be one of the most beneficial societies on the post. Lt.

This year, the Benjamin Franklin Honor Society, under the direction of Col. Mitterling, our advisor, and Cadet Lanshe, president, presented a wide selection of scien- tific programs to benefit the Corps of Cadets. Early in the year, the Society was able to arrange for a demon- stration on Liquid Air to supplement each Cadet's scientific training. Late in February, prominent mem- bers of the Society spoke on various aspects of Astron- omy. These lectures were accompanied by films, and were presented to those Cadets in good academic stand- ing and interested in joining this acitve group. This year we were permitted to visit the Lehigh Dairy, where we witnessed the processes of homogenization and pasteurization as well as the manufacturing of other basic dairy products. The main goals of the Society have been to instill an interest in scientinc subjects, and present experi- ments which are not used in the class room because of their complex nature. The sincere interest in science possessed by each member has made the programs pre- sented by the Society extremely educational as well as interesting. It is in our hopes that in the future the Society will continue with similar educational programs, which will instill an interest in science among the members of the Corps of Cadets. 178 Cadet Lanshe shows project on the distillation of fresh water from sea water. liollom row: Jewett, J., Santoro, P., Lt.

Once again, the school's debating society experienced a year of hard but rewarding work. Headed by its in- dustrious advisor, Lieutenant Heise, the Patrick Henry Forensic Society endeavored to promote an interest in public speaking and discussion throughout the Corps. One of the hardest working groups on the post, this year's society participated in several inter-scholastic debates, giving all opponents a worthy battle. Several members of the society participated in the Invitational Tournament of Philadelphia's Central High School and the Academy's own Invitational Debate which played host to over a dozen public and private secondary schools. The society's main contacts with the Corps are the Oratorical Contest and the Dunaway Debate which are held annually. Those cadets who were fortunate enough to be members of the Patrick Henry Society had one of the most rewarding and unceasing benefits for their asking: the ability to speak with confidence and pre- sent with logic, one's own views. Through the dedi- cated guidance of the advisor and the unceasing co- operation from the members of the society, this year's debating society was a true success. Dunaway Medal winner, Cadet jewett, speaks to the Society about the Invitational Debate. 179 Seated: Sabel, I,, Stevens, M., Baker, XV., Floyd, YV., Kornet, J.

Major Heinrich, advisor to Crossed Sabres, and Captain Mason, advisor to The Legionnaire, nominate eligible candidates to Colonel Esrey, the Society's ad- visor. Alter these nominations have been approved by the Executive Secretary at National Headquarters, the nominees are formally inducted at the Annual Publica- tions Dinner held in April. Since the inception of the Valley Forge Chapter, named in memory of Allen YV. Rucker, Class of l943, this organization has endeavored to improve the stand- ards of journalism in the Academy's yearbook and news- paper.

In its eager and dedicated attempt to promote Spanish and Spanish culture throughout the Corps, the Ruben Dario Honor Society has made great strides this year. In our different meetings, we have seen many pictures on Spanish and Latin American topics and have also been honored with the visit of the Consul of Chile who gave a brief talk on that country. To top it off, we enjoyed our annual trip to the city of Philadelphia. The Society is still new though, and small in numbers, but in the years to come it will increase in size, popularity, and participation in the Corps activ- ities. just two years ago the society was only a club, but through the efforts of its members it became a regular Honor Society. I am sure that the society will always rank in the top societies of the Academy. The real purpose of our group though, is not to compete against others or go on different trips. The aim of our organization is to give its members greater knowledge and a desire of foreign languages. It is also designed to help spread the desire throughout the Corps. With the help of the members of our group and our sincere faculty advisor, Lieutenant Fontain, our goals shall be reached. 181 Boltom raw: Green H., Arnovitz, R., Colonel Campbell, Long, S., Colacicco, G.

This year, the Alexander Hamilton Forum, under the skillful guidance of Colonel Campbell, has completed a very successful group of meetings. Witli the society's main purpose always in mind, namely that of stimulat- ing and developing a better interest in general history and current affairs, the year l962-63 has been filled with many interesting events sponsored by the society. The society had many interesting programs within itself, including a lecture by the Chairman of the History Department, Colonel Gardiner, on the topic of "Alexander Hamilton," for whom this society is named. In addition to their regular programs, the society spon- sored a Dean's Assembly on the ever controversial topic, "Communism," and throughout the year, the members have been privileged to hear talks by outstanding per- sons in the public and governmental eye. These speak- ers have added to our knowledge of domestic and foreign affairs so essential to the life of everyone today. In March, the society took its annual trip and saw the motion picture, "Lawrence of Arabia." The members of the society feel that this year has been interesting and informative, and has added an- other successful year to the society's history. 182 Alexander Hamilton members confer before presentation of 1Jean's Assembly program. liollonz rozu: Hiergesell, Sahel, I., Major Heinrich, Schwietzer, R., Muckenfuss, L.

As l962-l963 comes to a close, we all feel as though we have completed a year that may be marked as "highly successfulu in our society's history. VVe have advanced our organization to a point where it truly follows the motto "Ars Artis Causaf' Art for Artis Sake. Although we have a new advisor this year, we have found him to be highly competent in fulfilling his obligation to our ideals in dramatics. Lieutenant Quigg has shown further interest by introducing a play, in coordination with Captain Mason, which was presented by the society. Also this year we attended several shows in Philadelphia to support our interests in art at its best. In the future we invite others to become members of the Mask and Spur Honor Society and to promote the interest in dramatics and classic and modern arts as many have done in the past. Wle know their results will be fruitful, as ours have been, through a thorough indoctrination to an informative study of art. And now we leave our society and our past efforts to Cadets of the future who will maintain our ideals and the name of the Mask and Spur Honor Society pre- dominately throughout the Corps of Cadets. The mem- bers of the l962-l963 session bid their farewell. 183 Bottom row: Dunkleberger, G., Captain Michaels, Boyd, Gass, S. Second row: Leader J., Det- wiler, C., Trenga, J., Arndt, N.

It may be hard for someone to under- stand the language of someone from a foreign country, but music speaks for itself and no one has to have a translator to get the true meaning out of music. The Stephen Foster Honor Society is a Cadet organization, devoted to developing and furthering, not only their knowledge and appreciation of this "universal language," but that of the Corps also. The objectives of the members ol this society are threefold: l. To promote an appreciation of music through- out the Corps by sponsoring musical activities. 2. To bring to its members an increased knowl- edge and appreciation of all types of music. 3. To maintain the standing of this organiration by willingly contributing to its activities. YVith these three basic precepts rest the success of this organization. In this society, talent and the love of music generally combine to make each meeting or pro- gram an interesting and enjoyable experience. All members contributed toward this experience. 184 The Society spends many enjoyable evenings listening to selections played by its own mem- hers. Bottom row: Haman E., Floyd, WV., Captain Stork, Eaile L Second row YVendt J Strauss Gardine, WV The purpose of the WVashington Irving Literary Society is to foster an appreciation of literature and creative writing. This is accomplished mainly by the compila- tion of the best Cadet writing during the Academic year and the publishing of same in the Sketch Book. YVith the able assistance of Captain Stork, the Society's new advisor, the Wlashington Irving Society hopes to publish a new and better Sketch Book this year with an entirely different format and presentation. The Society also held an informal discussion on contemporary American Literature to which all Honor students were invited. This discussion was not only interesting, but educational as well. It provided an outlet for a literary-rninded Cadet to express his ideas before a group of prospective "literateurs.'1 The meetings often turned into 'lliterary debatesj, especially when such men as Colonel Esrey and Major lnfortuna spoke about their favorite and often contro- versial authors. The highlight of the year's activities was the So- ciety's annual dinner trip. A lecture and an interest- ing movie were enjoyed by all.

The Order of Anthony Wayne This, the Academy's highest award, was literally "born in href' It was established on January 18, 1929, when the original campus of Valley Forge Military Acad- emy was completely destroyed by fire. The heroism of the cadets at this moment, along with their excellent training and discipline, inspired the Super- intendent to establish this highly coveted award. The Order of Anthony Mfayne is awarded "to those cadets, who in the opinion of the members of the Order, have achieved the standards of qualifica- tions for which the Order stands, namely, efliciency, high ideals, and untiring efforts above and beyond the call of duty, contributing substantially to the morale, esprit de corps, and progress of the Valley Forge Military Academy, and exemplifying the best traditions of the military service."

Here at Valley Forge, one of the primary goals of the school is to instill in each cadet the Honor which he will carry with him long after he departs. Honor here at Valley Forge is like a link in a chain. If the link is broken, the standards of the Corps will drop. Since Honor exists among the cadets themselves, it is left up to them to uphold it. All cadets know the Honor Code for it is very simple: "A cadet does not lie, cheat, or steal." Almost everyone lives and abides by the code: however, for the few who have difhculty living honorably, there is the cadet Honor Council, whose members are selected by the Superintendent. The Council is made up of the Chairman, the Cadet Regimental Commander, and various cadets, totaling twelve, each representing his respective unit. Established here years ago, the Honor Code is highly respected by all members of the Corps, the simplicity of the code makes understanding of its rules easy. In future years, in college and thereafter, graduates will remember the Honor System at Valley Forge Military Academy, for, without Honor, possibility for a successful and happy life is remote. This year, the Honor Council is quite pleased. The Corps has displayed a good sense of integrity and honesty between their fellow cadets and their school. Someone once said, "Valley Forge builds men-and without Honor, there are no men." The members of the Valley Forge Honor Council will always remember the privilege they had to serve on a council that upheld the ideals of honor for the future Corps of the Academy. Sf?

With the many extra-curricular activities at the Academy, it is the purpose of this board to help to organize and develop these activities for the good of the Corps of Cadets. Members of the Board of Governors visit meetings of clubs and Honor Societies, and attend movies and athletic events in order to acquaint themselves more thoroughly with all activities available to the Corps. VVith this knowledge, the members of the board can better suggest or recommend changes which will reflect to more and better Cadet activities. The Board of Governors is made up of sixteen of the Senior Cadet Officers taken from the Regimental Staff, the Infantry and Mounted Battalions, and from each Company of the Corps and appointed for one yearls service by the Superintendent. lt is to this board that Cadets make their own suggestions for the betterment of activities and the board, in turn, reviews these suggestions and submits their recommendations to the Superintendent. Working with the Director of Activities, Lt. Colonel C. Kennedy Allen, the board functions to help stimulate the various activities, with its primary purpose to keep the morale of the Corps at a high level and to foster a superior degree of Esprit-dc-CIo'rj9s throughout the Cadet body. r Bottom row: Bowser, M., Rowe, A., Hess, Colonel Gardiner, Danials, B., Sinclair, J., Tcrni- gan, R.

This year the Advisory Council consists of four representatives each from A, B, C, D, E, F, and G Com- panies and one Band representative, totaling twenty-nine in all. The purpose of this group is to recommend to the Superintendent such improvements, innovations, and alterations as may seem desirable from time to time in all phases of Cadet Life at the Valley Forge Military Academy by means of proper parliamentary procedure as outlined in the constitution of the organization. Oflicers are elected annually by the council for the olhces of president, vice president, secretary, and sergeant-at-arms. Meetings are held monthly at times set by the advisor and the president.

Here, two cadets check the list as they address invitation envelopes. 190 As the dances at the Academy contribute greatly to the Social and Educational background of the Corps, it is therefore htting to have a committee who can arrange all the details to make each dance both on and off the post a real success. This committee is composed of a senior or regi- mental hop manager, a hop manager from each com- pany, with an assistant hop manager from the Cadet N.C.Ofs to represent each company. The managers arrange both personal and blind dates and see that in- vitations are sent to all guests. The assistants in each company contact the individual cadets for names of their dates and tabulate the necessary rosters from which the invitations are sent out. The night of the dance, the Hop Committee assists in the assigning and intro- duction of blind dates and circulates on the dance floor to assure a smoothly functioning affair. During the past year, this committee has done an outstanding job under the direction of its advisor, the Academy Adjutant, who gives credit to its members for the praise, which it has so justly received, from the members of the Corps of Cadets and their dates.

Now in its third year of existance, the Valley Forge Military Academy Museum Club has shown continuous growth and progress. As its primary function, the Club has the duty of fostering the growth and development of the Academy Historical Museum. As their Academy matures, the Cadet members are dedicated to keeping pace by preserving and displaying in appropriate fashion the historical record of their institution. The Club is indebted to Mr. Alex Montgomery of Villanova for a recent gift to the Academy of a mag- nificent collection of military weapons of all kinds, in- cluding a complete record of the evolution of the famed Mauser action. In keeping with its policy of visiting, for the pur- pose of guidance and inspiration, established military museums in this region, the Club visited the l'Var Li- brary and Museum of the Military Order of Loyal Le- gion at its National Headquarters in Philadelphia. In preserving the past, the Club looks to the future in its continuing interest in seeking greater space and improved displays, and during the current year has been seeking a suitable oflicial name.

Mr. Ray Snow, Cadets Sahel and Larsen check folding of 7963 Crossed Sabres. 192 Each year, in late September, a rather unique group of Cadets gather in a room in Mellon Hall to plan what will be, in May, one of the most remembered articles that a Cadet will take with him from the Academy. Those who are graduating will find it becoming more and more valuable as the years go hy, because it is a compact record of their years at "The Forge." This well- rememhered article is Crossed Sabres, the Valley Forge Military Academy Yearbook. Those cadets who have worked on the Crossed Sabres this year, putting in seemingly endless hours of editing, typing, re-typing, scheduling photographs, and making final layouts, under the direction of their most able Editor, Cadet lvan R. Sahel and their Advisor, Major Lawrence Heinrich, have something to be proud of. The duty is arduous, but for those who stay with it, the rewards are great, and the Advisor has great praise for them. ln Gctober of 1962, a group of Cadets of the year- book staff attended seminars at the 22nd Annual Year- book Conference of the Columbia Scholastic Press Asso- ciation in New York City. All agreed that the trip was very worthwhile as it gave some of the new members a chance to see just how yearbooks are conceived and constructed. As this year closes, we of the Crossed Sabres are realizing that our work was not in vain, the Corps ol: Cadets acclaims the best yearbook ever.

There have been many important stories this year, among them the visit of the Ambassador from England, Sir Ormsby Gore, the Inaugural Parade, and the many Corps activities such as the Dunaway Debate, Concerts, and Assemblies. In each case, the Legionnaire brought the details to the many Academy and non-Academy subscribers to the V.F. M.A. newspaper.

During this year, the Club has changed a great deal from those of former years. Under the leadership of Captain McKin- ney, the Audio-Visual Club has performed many services for their own benefit and for the benent of the Corps of Cadets. These services provide entertainment for the Corps and instruction in the classrooms, and practical experience in the operation of audio-visual equipment for the members ol the Club. One of these services is the running of the movie in Mellon Hall on Friday and Saturday nights. ln previous years, the Audio-Visual Club has had only a few members. However, this year it has grown to a point where it now has about thirty members, many of whom are third and fourth classmen. These under- classmen will be the backbone olf the club in future years. All have been receiving instruction in special classes on the proper use of amplifiers, 16 mm movie projection units, tape recorders, and various other pieces of electronic sound and sight equipment.

The shop in which they work is well equipped. There are power saws, belt sanders, a lathe, a grindstone, ceramic kilns, an electric jig saw, and all the smaller tool items. The Hobby Shop is under the direction of Mr. Samuel C. Hill, a retired cabinetmaker. Mr. Hill has helped the Cadets in their projects and these projects have been very worthwhile, This year, the direction of construction in the Hobby Shop turned nautical. There were three full- sized boats built there, including a twelve foot sailboat. Other projects completed by the Cadets included a beautiful Stereo Hi-Fi Cabinet, custom made, bookcases, gun cabinets, gun stocks, carved bookends, end tables with turned legs, models of many kinds, and even a maze lor the psychological conditioning of mice.

An organization of eighty members, twenty-eight of whom will receive the Choir Cross for two years of service, the Choir partici- pated in all regular chapel and vesper services and also in special services such as Lincolnis Birthday, the Alumni Memorial Service, and for such organizations as the Military Order of YVorld Wfars and the Loyal Legion of the YVorld Wlars, always Filling the chapel with music of the highest standards. Perhaps the most important function the choir had was its participation in the Christmas Vespers Service and the Christmas Pageant. Here was where the hard work and long hours of practice paid off. Accompanied by two harpists, a celesta, violin, and soprano, the Choir in its own way helped the Corps celebrate that most sacred of all the seasons. The Choir also participated in other services in areas other than the Academy, the principal one being held at St. Thomas Church in New York City.

Mills, D., VanNote, A As the Christmas season closed, so our season began. To prepare for our heavy schedule of events during the spring, including many concerts with the Band, many long hours of practice were put in to build up our repetoire to accommodate heavy pressure about to be placed on it. To a cadet in the Glee Club there is much in store, as the new "gleemen" learned so quickly. The season opened with a visit of the girlis choir of the Beard School, Orange, New Jersey, who presented a concert after which a dance was held with the Glee Club. The season continued with the third annual "Festival of Three Glee Clubs," a fabulous program presented by tl1e combined Glee Clubs of Valley Forge, Hill School and Episcopal Academy. Our trips included a concert at the Union League in Philadelphia and a joint concert at the Ellis School, Also on our schedule was a trip to Mt. Vernon Seminary, Wfashington, for a joint concert and dance, a trip not soon forgotten. On the third of May, the combined Glee Club and Choir were honored in being a part of an Armed Forces Memorial program which was video-taped in the Cadet Chapel. This program, seen by many in the Philadel- phia area, was made for television broadcast on Sunday, May lfith. Portions of this broadcast were sung at the Cadet Second Lt, William VC.

The Acolytes' Guild is a group of Cadets who serve as attendants to the Chapel of Saint Cornelius, the Cen- turion. Interested Cadets selected by Chaplain QLt. Colonelj YVilliam L. Porter, serve under the direction of Cadet SfSergeant James YV. Derbyshire, Chapel Ser- geant in charge of the guild. This year's guild is com- posed of thirty cadets, of various religious faiths, eigh- teen of whom serve at Corps Services and twelve who serve at Episcopal Services. The Guild participates in many varied activities and services. It assists at the Sunday Service for the Corps of Cadets each week, as well as for Eucharistic Services, daily. It also takes part in many special events such as the annual Christmas Pageant, memorial and other services, and this year, two television services. At the impressive eleven o'clock Service on Sundays, the mem- bers of the Guild provide crucifer, altar boys, and verger. Practice is held two days a week on the Cadetys own time. The Guild's social activities traditionally include an evening out for dinner at the Collegeville Inn. The passing year has proved very fruitful for all concerned, and the Guild looks forward to continued improvement in its Work. 198 Cadet Cosans, Crucifer, cxtinguishes Altar candles following Chapel Services.

Its primary purpose is that of seating and ushering cadets and guests each Sunday at the Chapel of Saint Cornelius, the Centurian. In accordance with this, the vestry also takes the re- sponsibility of ushering and keeping order at concerts, debates, lectures, and all other Corps functions. Being obvious that this task is one of great re- sponsibility, members of the Vestry are selected and ap- pointed by the Chaplain on the basis of their past and present accomplishments at Valley Forge. The Vestry is organized under four groups: Honorary, As- sociate, Regular, and Junior. The total organization consists of approximately fifty members, comprised primarily of Cadet officers. The aim of the Cadet Vestry is to help the individual member learn to associate and work with other people, a necessity in all Walks of life. Mfe sincerely hope that the services rendered by the Cadet Chapel Vestry have been a credit to the Cadet Chapel, the Reverend Wfilliam L. Porter, and to all Cadet Sahel member of Chapel Vemy hands others concerned. Vle extend to our successors our deep- out Church Calenders to Academy guests.

Photography has been defined as "the recording for posterity, on a piece ol paper, the actions of a world." The processes by which this is done are open to anyone. The wielder ol the simple box camera has just as much advantage as the person with the expensive reflex. Both can take the same photographg can record the same scene, can reap the same benefits from their toil. The difference that might be noted, however, is in the final print. The person who sends his pictures to a commer- cial laboratory takes what is given to him, but he who does the processing ol the negative and final print, gets what he wants. It is to these ends that the Matthew Brady Photo- graphic Club operates. Under the direction of Major Lawrence Heinrich, a former professional photographer, this club has as its purpose the furthering of the educa- tion of the Cadet interested in photography. He can learn the rudiments of taking a good photograph and then, and here the emphasis lies, learn the procedures of developing the negative and the final print to his specifications. Cadets participate in the activities of the Legion- rmire and Crossed Sabres by actual assignments in taking photographs for these two important news media of the Academy.

The Amateur Radio Club of Valley Forge Military Academy has as its purpose the furthering of interest in all b-ranches of communication by the training of cadets in the Theory and Code necessary for them to achieve the Novice, Technician, or General Amateur Radio License for operation on the Amateur Radio Bands so assigned to them by the Federal Communi- cations Commission. The Advisor, Major Lawrence Heinrich QKESYVAPQ, is working this year on the pro- motion of a "Ham Shack" to be second to none in this areag capable of lVorld-XVide transmission and reception. Following a number of years of latent and unpro- ductive operation, on equipment belonging to individ- ual Cadets, the "Ham" Club has been revitalized this year. Members of the Club have been holding Saturday morning classes in Code and Theory for prospective amateurs. The members of the Corps of Cadets who have been taking these courses will be ready by the end of this school year to take the F.C.C. examinations for at least Novice or Technician licenses. An application for a School Station License is in progress, and it is hoped that by next year the station can be "On the Airu for all cadets to send "phone patch" messages to friends and relatives all over the world.

It was at this time that we obtained our first charter from the American Motorcycle Association. This charter gave the club national recognition, with our membership came the opportunity to purchase trophies for the most outstanding riders in the club. To determine the winner, the club ollicer, under direction of Colonel Artz, has been able to develop an intricate course to test the riders' ability. The motorcycles probably provide one of the most colorful and interesting activities at the Academy. Safety is the most stressed technique of them all. All riders must have a perfect safety record and n1ust pass a strin- gent test of actual motorcycle operation. Motorcycle riding is not all fung the biggest and the most important job is to do well on the parade field. The motorcyclist always adds much color and precision to all parades throughout the year. 202 Colonel Ariz and Cadet Captain Schroeder check cycle starting with Cadet Pollock.

Each member has met the requirements set up by the club officers. The Club plans the programs and projects for "EH Battery. The Battery Club' was mainly in charge of the trip the Mounted Units took to Harrisburg for Governor Scrantonls inauguration. The Club worked for a month before the trip in order to get all the trucks running and all the motor cycles mounted. Also this year, the Club planned a show with our trucks and cycles which was held on the new parking lot. The show demonstrated the skill the drivers of have accomplished. The purpose of the Battery Cl'ub is to help each individual Cadet and to plan the activities for the Bat- tery. You might say that the Club serves as a Board of Governors for the Battery. This year we are planning to make an all-day trip to the Aberdeen Proving Grounds. XfVe will see the various missiles and rockets our Army uses.

The Harriers Club The Harriers Club is composed of the select members of "D" Troop who, through their knowledge of the horse, experience at the stables, and the mastering the fine art of horsemanship have been elected to promote horsemanship at Valley Forge. The members of the club must also demonstrate the true spirit of the Cavalry Service. The club's activities for this year included a Christa mas Social, Cross-country rides, and a Spring Social. These activities are both enjoyable to the Cadet and are benefical to his learning of the horseman's world. In the cross-country rides the member learns how to care for himself and his mount under outdoor riding conditions. One of the main functions of the club is to run the polo games during the polo season. The club extends its knowledge, of how the horse world operates, outside of Valley Forge by attending the Devon Horse Show, and the Pennsylvania National Horse Show at Harrisburg. The Harriers Club has for its advisor, Colonel Fisher, who, with his vast knowledge of the horse, polo, horsemanship, and care of the horse, adds to the indi- vidual knowledge of each member of the club. Through this, a member of the Harriers Club has gained a priv- ilege that is offered to few. He is in a society that pro- motes fellowship, equitation, and most of all, devotion to the horse. 204 Cadet Uhler takes a jump with ease The Crosswl Sabres staff works busily checking proof copy. ,f st G.w'fQzwQ.n init Eimiui? .
