And so it is with us; for, although our cup of experience has been filled with more of nectar than of gall, it is the remembrance of obstacles overcome that etches upon our hearts the happenings of the years from 1918 to 1922, and causes us to feel the pangs of regret when we think that our four years have drawn to a close. Last of the " War Babies, " we made our debut in September, 1918. All Rat years are very much alike; but we, having been mistaken for Huns by the Third Classmen (or so it seemed then, though now we are grateful for their many attentions) , were constantly aware that a war was on. We went through the trials and tribulations of the S. A. T. C. until that organization was dissolved. Then we entered in earnest the " finning out, " " shirt-tail parades, " Easter egg fight, and numerous other time-honored customs that make the first year the happiest, perhaps, of the four. During three short summer months we were metamorphosed from the meekest of rodents to the " meanest " of Third Classmen. We returned to the Institute with the attitude of those who are " monarchs of all they survey. " We held " Rat sheenies, " threw bombs, went under arrest, walked special guard tours, in fact did everything we should not have done and few of the things we should have done. But we learned in the school of experience, and emerged from that trying year with few casualties to show as a result of our tendency to break existing regulations. Summer again rolled by and with it another change in the Class of 1 922. Having had time to reflect upon the evil of our ways, we returned the following September not without the exuberance of spirits that had characterized our Third Class activities, but vWth the added determination to put them to uses more becoming to our position as digni- fied Second Classmen. We were no longer members of the proletariat, but now full- fledged members of the aristocracy of the Upper Classes. During this year our pleasures were greater and more frequent than in either of the two preceding years; for not only did we experience the ecstacies of delight that accompanied the putting on of our class rings and our participation in the Final Ball, but also we enjoyed that privilege which among cadets is the rarest of the rare: that of existing for one whole year without coming within the shadow of the Eighteenth Amendment as issued from Headquarters. After finals was over and our Final Ball was a thing of the past, we scattered to the " comers of the earth " to await the day when we should return to take up our duties as leaders of the Corps, First Classmen. The race horse, the boxer, the swimmer, the marathon runner each puts forth his best effort on the home stretch, when the goal is in sight and victory depends upon the des ' re 49 : JSM and determination to win. And so, when we returned to the Institute in the fall of 1 92 1 , each of us was imbued with the selfsame desire and determination to win as a class, to leave behind us a record that might compare favorably with the most brilliant of those which have been written before. First Class hops, F. C. P., miniatures, all were but parts of the prelude that led up to that day in June which marked the culmination of all our efforts for the past four years, the day when we received that parchment which seems to mark the transition from youth to manhood — our diploma. In athletics the Class of 1922 has been exceptionally prominent. Summers wears a monogram in football, basketball, baseball and track; Bunting, in football, basketball and baseball; Drewry, in football and track; Shannon, in football and basketball; Venable, W., in football and wrestling; Wescott, Miller, Ridgely, Clark, Douglas, W., in football; Campbell, in basketball; Parrott, Venable, R., in wrestling; Perkinson, in baseball; Young, Macrae, in tennis; and Brown, in track. And now our course is run and we stand on the threshold of life, confident of our ability to meet and overcome its obstacles, confident that the heritage we pass on to our successors will not suffer in their keeping, but, overshadowing all, holding in our hearts a love that shall never grow cold, thd love we feel for our Alma Mater — V.

Roseate daggers of sunset Transfix the clear blue of the evening sky. Athwart the parade ground lies the gray battalion. Long lines of silent men, austerely motionless. But, lo! the universal calm is rudely shattered. The evening gun roars out, a swelling anthem peals — See, where the nation ' s flag, a glory in its folds. Slowly, reluctantly, deserts the twilight air. The last long note is fading on the ear ; down sinks the sun. So ends another day at V. M. I. C. E. T., ' 22. i t Spiritus Vigesima Duo, B.S., A.B.

" Twenty-two " was a Rat with about two hundred and seventy-five of us in our dumb, pitiful days; and he passes out of V. M. I. with the ninety-five of us who have stayed on and " kept the faith. " During the four years between matriculation and graduation, therefore, he has entered into every phase of our lives. He has " caught hell ' with us as Rats; he has contributed his share towards making ours an auspicious year in the Third Class; he has put on his ring and strutted in the Final Ball with us; and, finally, he has set the pace for us in our fourth and final year of cadet life — as First Classmen. There is not a better friend we could have had than " Twenty-two. " In telling him good-bye we realize that he has helped to keep us together as a class, and recognize that after all there are bigger, finer things than our individual whims and desires. We know not whence " Twenty-two " came; he passes on — we know not where. We won ' t see him again; we won ' t hear him again; but in our memory he ' ll be an impression, a recollection, a friend we can ' t forget. GiLMORE Leech Agnor LEXINGTON, VIRGINIA Born 1898.

As he had lived in Lexington all his life, he expected to enter the Institute with all the knowledge of an old cadet. After the first jolt he rubbed his shins, closed his e;yes, and determined to stick it out. To relieve the monotony of rathood, he learned to play the cornet, although not without opposition from his " Brother Rats. " Since that time he has cultivated his talent and now plays several instruments, including the organ and the flute. As a Third Classman, Gill made a great success as the auburn-haired corporal, although the difficulties of the year caused him to lose his chevrons when about thirty of us were accused of throwing bombs in the courtyard. But you cannot hold a good man down, so the Second Class year found him a sergeant. About this time Gill ' s love for sport gave him the reputation of being a great hunter, and he acquired the nickneime of " Jumbo. " Casting his lot with the electricians, " Jumbo " baffled the professors by proving himself to be the original re-exam passer. In the First Class year Gill became famous as a social lion. His picture gallery was enlarged several times. Gill ' s buoyant spirits will cause him to float above the tide of life like Ivory soap, and his good nature will win him friends wherever he goes. He has taken his troubles manfully and his good fortunes gracefully. We bid him good-bye with sorrow, but with admiration and esteem. " How about a ' Chisterfield ' ? " ' ..■Ifrnt ' . .

Like all of us, " Jew " got into trouble m his Rat year. When he cast a weather-beaten egg against Captam Lafferty ' s head on Easter Sunda,y morning he was put in ihe guardhouse none too gently. In his Third Class year he secured those old two stripes at make-overs. And early this year he showed that he had a way with the women; ever since then he has struggled to keep the girls off when he goes to the hops. As a Second Classman he assumed a dignified air and became a member of the chirping group that attends the Episcopal Church each Sunday morning. This year much of his time was devoted to writing letters and hittmg the hay — never- theless, he did not fail to give those tender-hearted calic a thrill when hop time came around. After a summer at Camp Knox, " Fuzzy " became a full-fledged First Classman. Three years of the place were not enough for him — he had to haye a fourth; so during his First Class year we find him digging for that old dip. Walter Aims to become a great electrical engineer, and we believe that with his winning smiie and charming personality (and, mcidentall,y, his knowledge of electricity) he will make good.

In common with the rest of us, he had a busy time in his Rat year. His specialty was visits to old cadets. As this grew rather tame, he decided to try something new. On the rather insistent advice of his corporal, he wore a most original dike to parade: white belts on a khaki overcoat. At the beginning of his Third Class year he chose the cavalry as his branch of the R. O. T. C. He has shown up well in both riding and marksmanship. At hunting he has no equal; rabbits and birds are literally at his mercy. In his academic work he has done himself justice. Electrical Engineering is his chosen course. Whether or not he follows his profession, he will succeed, because he has an uncanny ability for making money. He can sell anything from a belt to an R. O. T. C. check. " Sandy " seems to have a friendly feeling for the fair sex, esp ecially for the writer of certain " pink sheets " from the capital ci y. He has a sterling character, is very amiable, and greets everybody with a smile. He is sure to make good. We all wish you luck, old man. William Wharton Archer, Jr., B.S.

Resembling in feature some handsome desert chief, he finds it easy to play such a role with femininity, failing only in that his kind heart is touched when the tears rush forth. It was " P. R. ' s " distinguished career among the Boy Scouts Corps of his home that decided him to enroll here. This grounding in military lore carried him easily through the turbulence of his Fourth Class year; the only woes during this period were numerous mvitations from some of the Third Classmen, and his perforce acceptance. Upon attaining the freedom of old cadetship, " Pee- Wee " quickly gained a reputation as the most promising guardhouse lawyer of his class. Due to his daily sessions with the Commandant, he was very soon able to interpret any of the regulations to his less venturesome friends. This care-free altitude continued for a year, and the first wrinkles were developed only with the first study of Electrical Engineering. " P. R. " was de- termined to be a practical man, and so decided at the outset to dispense with the ridiculous theories of the text-books. Only with difficulty did his instructors brmg about a reconciliation. It was in working for the advertising department of the Bomb that " Buzz " showed his real faithfulness of service. He did an immense amount of work, for most of which he will not take credit. It is doubtful that the Institute has ever had a more generous son than " P. R.

Lara has been with us for only three years, but in that length of lime he has proved himself a man worthy of an,y man ' s friendship and good-will. He has, as the old saying goes, " as many good points as a porcupine has quills. " His everlasting smile and high spirits have made many of us forget that we are no longer " hounds, " and that our " biscuits have been cut. " Lara believed, as a Rat, in doing what he was told to do. As a Second Class- man he was rather inclined towards the Bolshevik side of life. Aside from assisting in running an ordnance store room and making ten o ' clock dates during the hops, he got along fine. He adhered to the Institute adage that to break the regulations is all right, but to gel caught is hell. " Larrie " says that he has seen a lot of women, but has never laid eyes on a " damsole " who could make him catch his breath. He almost caught it when he tried to play the role of Dapper Dan on the line between Shreveport, Georgia, and Chicago.

" I have flattered lady ; vith my friend: smooth with mine have been politi enemy. " John Millington Blankenship — a name far too ponderous for a man his size, and far too dignified! So he is known to his friends (he has lots of them) and his enemies (of course he has these, too) by the name of " Sheep. " He really looks a little bit like one, and he is as gentle as a Iamb when his temper is not aroused. Though his picture shows a seraphic countenance, " Sheep " is a miniature whirlwind in action. But for his size, he would undoubtedly be an athletic star. Among his enemies may be included the mail orderlies, for his correspondence is large beyond belief. The funny part about it is they are all sincere with him! He has con- tributed greatly to the success of the hops; first, by introducing to us an assort- ment of varied and perfect girls ; and, second, by showing us how to dance with them in the most graceful manner. To those of us who have known him in " cits, " he is a regular " T. A. cowboy " and his future is assured. Whenever we meet him afterward, we will know that our ship is in a friendly harbor; for there is nothing he would not do to help a fellow sufferer. We will remember " Sheep " first as a Rat, on account of his peculiar and original mode of " finning out, " then as a Third Classman, for his cheerfulness before the many trials of our darker days; and in these last two years, for the thousand and one little things he has done for each of us, whenever we needed help. To know him is to love him, and we all know him well. " I kNOw women. They can ' t trick me. " ; iisi!e, ' ;i5r ' -« . ' --.Ti •vm ammimiiisiima i ' . iiSte:. v. Wll r Frederick Prieur Bonney, B.S.

It is not to be denied that his winning smile and gentlemanly manner are great assets, while his charming fwrsonality has won for him many admirers. During his four years at V.

" In the early morn of September 1, 1918, " Bill " came dragging his suit case across the parade ground, and was the first Rat of ' 22 to matriculate. He asked for a room and bath. Needless to say, he was enthusiastically welcomed fc y the Third Class and was shown the sights of the Institute by his old-cadet friends for some lime. As a Third Classman he began wearing the gold, and has in his First Class year attained the highest military honor at V. M. I., the position of First Captain. This position symbolizes all that V. M. I. men hold close to their hearts. Not only in military affairs is " Bill " a worker. For two years he has been on the football squad; he has been a wrestler for two seasons; and as directing manager of the Dramatic Club he has made that club one of the most active organizations of the Institute. " Bill " has two weaknesses, his " hay " and his heart. The first is easily satisfied; but when the hops roll around he is quite a little troubled with the second, due to the presence of all the beautiful girls.

From traversing this distance to Mother Earth, he learned the first maxim in military strategy, " the value of a minute. " " Boozie, " entermg as a Third Class Rat, was very much impressed with the importance of obtaining the fundametals of a course. At the end of the year he was advanced to the Second Class; but he saw that he would do himself an injus- tice if he proceeded farther without proper ground work. So he voluntarily joined his " Brother Rats " and repealed his Third Class year. In his Second Class year Joe took up the study of gases, liquids and Here, like all his fellow chemists, he became the worshiper of " Ole Rat.

Alas, the armistice put an end to General Brown, the military man, and we now look forward to General Brown, a general of industry. " Cosmo " perched in Room 65 and spent an ordinary Rat year. Towards the end of the year, however, he managed to untwist his lower limbs, and high jump about ten feet two, and win his monogram. Early next year his military ability was recognized and he was made a corporal. He also became a C. T. and assisted in the imitation of the Argonne. Again he won his monogram in track. Finally, to finish out a splendid year, he was made a sergeant at finals. In his Second Class year he cast his lot with the chemists. At this time (but not because of chemistry) his knee went back on him and he was incapacitated for the track team. His knee gave him a three months ' session of trouble.

When inter- rogated upon arrival by a gathering of elderly cadets, he replied calmly, " Boo, Sir.

It is an adequate tribute to say that " Jerry " is one of the greatest men that ever wore the gray. As an athlete, " Rabbit " has no superior; this his record above will show. With all of his accomplishments he is indeed modest. In football, basketball and baseball he is of the highest caliber.

" Though I am not splenetive and rash, yet I have in me something dangerous. " Among the wild-eyed crew of young hopefuls who descended upon barracks in the fall of 1918, we encountered none other than the above handsome gentleman. And, yea, he hails from the hilly city where long ago they replaced sidewalks with steps. Maynard made his debut into the high society of the Third Class along with his fellow unfortunates. Yet, like the rest of us, he forgot it all at finals. He began wearing the gold lace in his Third-Class year and the habit never left him. A corporal, a first sergeant, a captain — what more could be said? His long suit in athletics is basketball— and, by the way, did you ever see any one from Lynchburg who could not play basketball? Maynard won his monogram in his Third-Class year. The year following, he made a place on the All-South Atlantic team. Maynard ' s personality is a combination which is rare indeed. In line of duty he is serious and faithful to the last. When the time to trifle comes around, one would think he had barely reached his ' teens. His faithfulness to duly and his jovial nature have won him a host of friends, and friends who are ready to stick by him to the last. With the ladies, Maynard is a regular " daddy. " It is rumored that — , but names and tales do not go together. With his admirable qualities and good judgment, Maynard can be sure of success, the kind of success that is worth while.

He came to Lexington fresh from John Marshall High School, where he had been a running sergeant. Due to this, no doubt, or maybe due to his name, he was frequently mistaken by the rats for a commissioned officer. When John Jacob was a Third Classman, one rat came around to his room asking for Captain Donico. But as luck would have it, visits at that time by rats to old cadets ' rooms were taboo, and consequently for several long weeks the fair maids of Lexington missed " Campos " smile. But little matters like this last not for always. " Jacques " was very successful in his Richmond " affaires, " it seemed, but he does not boast of his local conquests since a certain Halloween party. He is a chemist of no small caliber, although one casually was attributed to his leaving the hydrogen sulphide outlet open. No harm was done, fortunately. The last phrase of the old saying that " good comes in small packages, " should be changed to read " in long packages. " A better fellow is hard to find, and suc- cess will surely overtake him on the road to prosperity. And as the years roll by, when he is the head of the Department of Chemistry at V. M. I., we hope he may taste of the pleasures of exercising authority by acting superintendent when the Lord of the Manor on the Nile is absent from his castle. " Whadye get?

" Along with many other young men who had recently cut the apron strings, there drove up to the Institute one of comfortable figure and distinguished bearing who informed the authorities that he was willing to give the place a trial. Thus it happened that one E. L. Carroll, Jr., later known as " Genie, " was assigned to a cot and table drawer and became an atom in the lowly tribe of rodents. In Laslie s four years at the Institute rathood, unrest, quiet thoughtfulness and dignity have followed each other in rapid succession. First undergoing the repression and endur- ing the hardships that all must suffer to wear the ring and earn the coveted diploma, there followed, in his case, the reaction and overflow of pent-up energy only too natural with the accession of new freedom. But a year of this, and his normal disposition returned, bringing at the same time the seriousness of the Second Class- man. Then hard work and constant application have been paramount in his suc- cessful effort to solve the deepest secrets of the elusive amperes and troublesome volts; and as a result comes the right to the awe-inspiring letters, " B.S.

" Comrade little, vhile The city of Leesburg is said to be noted for three things — it was at one time the capital of the United States, it is in the blue-grass section of Virginia, and it is the official domicile of one R. G. Carter. How and why this handsome youth came to Lexington, we do not know, unless it was that he envied the brass buttons and cross belts at one of the inaugural parades in Washington, or, having held down a corporalship at Episcopal High School, he sought promotion at V. M. I. Suffice it to say " Gus " has stayed with us for four years, and has become one of the most famous barracks characters. TKe gold lace has never adorned his arms, but a far greater position than it can give in the military world has been his — president of the O. G. ' s. " Gus " has Iwo outstanding characteristics: those elephant ears and those " may- belline " eyelashes ; so when you see that combination commg around the corner you know a good friend is near. His good fellowship, cleverness and sincerity make up a personality which will De missed at the Institute, but will make him a way in the world. Although an ardent student of Electrical Engineering, his recent business trans- actions, as a partner to a classmate, have led one to think that these two will hang out the three-ball sign this summer.

" Let him roar again! Let him roar again! " " E-e-e-e-kl " The cry of the ape rang out shrill and clear over the morning dew. One lone man screwed up courage to gaze out of the window just in time to see a figure scamper gracefully into the trees at limit gates, and swing agilely from limb to limb and from tree to tree until he reached the arch. So " Monk arrived at V. M. I. He was immediately given a monkey cap, a hand-organ, and a tin cup, and taught the manual of arms to the tune of " suck it up, " " drag in ' at chin, " and " get ' em back. " His Rat year was spent in more or less seclusion. He showed his quivering nose only when it was absolutely necessary. The next year conditions were reversed; his favorite paslime was overseeing strenuous calis- thenics in his room after supper and after tattoo. He soon became known as " the world ' s greatest Rat exterminator. " He deserved the title. During his Second Class year " Monk " did everything possible to do, from impersonating a " B. C. " to participating in the anti-wet crusade that swept bar- racks. He won the much-coveted football monogram as a First Classman. It is whispered that he is still looking for someone to give his monogram sweater to. " Monk, " you are a hell of a good scout, and we don ' t know of a truer or more dependable friend.

" Ble the little This little increment blew in on us from the metropolis of Washington. After a very short stay in barracks, " Possum " decided that his military position at the V. M. I. was very different from that of a lieutenant in the high school cadets. Still he stood his troubles well and soon became one of the most popular men in his class. " Willie ' s " ideal was reached when finals of his Rat year rolled around and he was made a corporal. The little corporal ' s military expectations were rudely shaken about the middle of his Third Class year, however. He was summoned before the commandant to answer the charge of " conniving in, aiding and abetting the firing of bombs. " After a long session with that esteemed officer, who ventured to say that " Willie " did not know what the conduct of a cadet should be, the lad replied that his forebears had been cadets for three generations, and that he knew full well how to behave himself. Nevertheless, the little angel was reduced to ranks for some little while. " Possum " became one of " Old Rat ' s " disciples, so he spent a part of the time in the hay and the rest pla,ying cut-throat with " Dumbo " and " Coonie. " During his First Class year he held the vice-presidency of the O. G. ' s, and upheld his reputation of being the smallest man but the biggest buzzard in barracks. Here ' s to you, " Willie. " If you show the same determination in overcoming your difficul- ties after you leave here as you have shown in overcoming the arguments of your roonunates, you ' ll have no cause to worry.

So he finally matriculated as a rat who already " knew the ropes. " As a result, he was known as one of " A " Company ' s most running " newly " cadets. As a reward for his work, he became a high-ranking corporal at finals. He has managed to keep his sleeves well decorated with chevrons ever since this time. Returning as a Third-Class corporal, " Pink Cheeks " quickly learned the ways of the mean old cadet, much to the consternation of his present classmates, who were timid rats at that time. After two years of military life, this handsome lad decided he was ready for the business world. So instead of returning for the session of 1919-20, he spent the year in New York as a " barker " on a Chinatown bus. It did not take " Bottle " long to decide that V. M. I. was better than Chinatown. So in the fall of 1920 we found him back again, enrolled as an Electrical Engineer, a Cavalryman, and a member of the Class of 1922. Academic work proved easy for him, for by the end of the year he was listed as a " high brow. " Horsemanship was not so easy. One of our dear lieutenants was once heard to advise him to " sit in the saddle for a change. " But equitation, too, was conquered, and he became a troop officer. As for the Class of 1922, it received a worth-while member. As a First Classman, " Bottle " has distinguished himself as a cadet officer in both Infantry and Cavalry. After he earns his diploma, he expects once more to embark into the wide world. This time he will be an electrical engineer instead of a " barker. " We hope — nay, we are sure — he will make good.

" Ignorant as we may be regarding the whereabouts of the metropolis of Mc- Gaheysville, we at least may conjecture that she is not entirely ill-favored in the person of A. D. Crenshaw, one of her staunch citizens, who has reposed in our midst for these four years. A quiet, unobtrusive, wholly unsuspecting individual, he was probably quite surprised with the warm reception he received during the first few weeks at the Institute. But he seemed to thrive even on the hardships of rat life — drill, hard third classmen, jack, and other delicacies — and has always been right on the job. He ascended unto the chevrons at Finals, 1919, and they have adhered to him pretty closely ever since; so we may infer that the military life has not come especially hard for him. For three years, also, he has been a mem- ber of the O. H. B. (Order of Highbrows). Prompted perhaps by the desire to start a lighting plant at his native heath, " Cren " became an electrical engineer; and it is rumored that ' P-foot " holds no terror for him with those little after-bugle problems. Until his First Class year, Dibrell displayed noticeably bachelor-like tendencies, but then — so changeth the tale. He seems, in fact, to well represent that old adage, " the longer they wait, the harder they fall. " Practical, sensible if somewhat conservative, thoughtful but always cheerful and even-tempered, " Hawkshaw " is one of those dependable, open-hearted fellows whom all of us regard with the highest esteem. We are not worrying about his future, because whatever he tries to do, he does and does well. " Ig. when will you wake up? " 9 ' Alan Prieur Curdts, B.S. NORFOLK, VIRGINIA Born 1900.

M. 1.; to first corporal ; back to private ; to first corporal again ; to first sergeant. This is the checkered military career of one T. Douglas during the years of 1919 and 1920. As to his records in other lines of endeavor, suffice it to say that during these two years he survived the vicissitudes of Rathood and the tribulations of the " bombing season, " and came out on the lop side with a proficient class average and zero demerits. " Tom s " Second and First Class years were spent in comparative peace and security, except for a brief and dangerous term at Rockbridge Baths, where he engaged in skirmishes with Calculus, Organic Chemistry, and the Haig Brothers. But he finally overcame these obstacles to his success, as he had overcome all others. Because of his enviable record at Camp Knox, where he left many friends, " Tom " was elected president of the Cadets ' Temperance Union, or, as the title is more popularl,y known. Captain of " E " Company. We do not know whether it was at Camp Knox or at Summer School that he acquired his mercenary instincts and his inordinate love of polo. " Tom " has been for two years an ardent disciple of " Old Rat, " and for four years a still more ardent disciple of the I. D. R. He is as loyal a friend as he is consistent a hater; he is a man who takes for his motto, and knows from his own experience the truth of the saying: " Church is never over till the choir sings.

" Being a native of Hicksville, Illinois, it was naturally supposed that " Wally " would enter the Stale University; but V. M. 1. was chosen instead. C ' est la guerre. He progressed rapidly in a military way, and was promoted to the front rank even in his Rat year; thence to a high-ranking " corporality " ; to a sergeancy; and finally to a lieutenancy. An athlete of great prep school fame, he went out for both basketball and football, and proved himself capable in both sports. He won the old monogram as a First Classman. As a Third Classman he was as hard in ranks as he was on the hill in football uniform. Because of the announcement of the engagement of the former " Mrs. Douglas, " " Wally " was left a confirmed woman- hater, and no longer bothered with trivial social affairs. In the mighty " skull-dragging " contests of the Fourth Sloop during the Second Class year he gained great notoriety and feared friendship along the whole stoop. Football was the first thing in which " Wally " could distinguish himself as a First Classman. He made all the trips, although, on account of a bad shoulder, he did not pla,y in all the games. As a defensive guard, V. M. I. has never had a harder fighting man. As one of Rat ' s disciples in chemistry he has been more than successful ; but chemistry was chosen only as a beginning for a great medical career.

" Refusing to be squelchec by such ignorance, " Little Willie " (for it was no one else) tartly replied, " The only man better looking than Norma Talmadge.

As a result of this calling, he left his home in the land of magnificent distances, rolling plains, and long-horned steers; and he was among the rest of us who entered these sacred portals in the fall of 17, little suspecting what he had before him. From the very start he made many friends. The old saying that " inches do not make the man and size has never been the true measure of ability " is certainly applicable in this instance. This small youth has stood near the head of his class ever since he has been here. It would be hard to find any one superior in sound judgment and strength of character. At one time John openly announced his opposition to the feminme sex and the hops appealed to him not at all. However, some one changed his mind before his last trip to the Institute, and for some unknown reason he is anxiously waiting until June will find him in Pans. John is a gentleman of the highest type, loved by many, admired by all. He has the character and will power that never know defeat. With his earnestness of purpose, we feel sure that, in the outer world, he will continue his capable work and will leave the world a better place to live in than it was when he entered it.

He came from the wilds of " Noo Joisey " to carry off the hearts of all the fair ones at the hops, where he dances like old man Jazz himself.

Yet all this fame has not succeeded in turning his head — much — and he is a true and modest classmate and friend. During the four years of his cadetship he has been fair to rat and old cadet alike. Duke is al least one man in barracks of whom it can be said, " He never tooted his own horn. " This modesty, coupled with his ability and natural running qualities, soon made him acquire the habit of wearing the gold; and today we see him with lieutenant ' s chevrons making new conquests of feminine hearts.

" My npany was not to the yc IS and lite ng and veil the Norbome Pescud, on arrival here, proclaimed countless times a day that he was from " N ' Yark, N ' Yark, sir, " but he is a Virginian by birth. Of course he did not know that the greater part of the remarks addressed to him were mostly noise, so he nearly despaired of becoming the kind of cadet his old cadet advisors wanted him to be. But, nevertheless, he passed through the year successfully, as was shown by his class standing at Finals. His Third Class year was spent in hard work, so it can hardly be said that he was a typical Third Classman. In spite of his dislike for Math and Physics, he held the high class stand he had won the year before. At the beginning of the Second Class year, " Gat " was chosen to edit the Bullet that year and the Bomb the year following. A born Liberal Artist, he managed to fulfill his duties and still remain something of a highbrow. The picture of " Gat " which we will remember is that of him sitting at his big desk at hard work on the Bomb, studying, or demonstrating the value of touch type- writing on an ancient, beloved Underwood. When seen outside he usually gives the impression that he is somewhat in a hurry and is considering matters that require deep thought. We have an idea that he will take up law, and feel certain that he will show up in that just as he has shown up here — right at the top. We are positive we shall never have a truer and more thoughtful friend, or know a more level- headed man. " Got any tobacc T. C. -No natch. ' Kenneth Hall Gayle, Jr., B.S.

" Ah, this child has not gone through four years at V.M.I, and still preserved his unwrinkled brow and unfazzled visage, " one might say. But indeed, Kenneth has passed by the four mileposts of cadet life from Septemb er, 1918, unto the present. In fact, he tells us that he was Rat No. 12 on that fateful morning of matriculation. With the advent of numerous old cadets, however, his premature feeling of loneliness was soon lost, and in common with other " brother rats, " " Ken " bloomed into popularity. The next year " Annie " was known as a hard " corp, " and the year following as an equally feared sergeant, but when he ascended unto a first classmancy, he once more became a mild-mannered, sober private, deriving consolation perhaps in a well-earned pair of stars. In spite of " Oley ' s ' time-consuming problems, " P. I. " still claims that Civil Engineering is his true calling. Not infrequently we find " Booty " flivvering over to Staunton, and he is said on more than one occasion to have created quite a furor at several young ladies ' schools over there. " Annie " is sometimes rather impulsive, outspoken, and apt to " kidding, " but at the same time he has a big, loyal heart that rings true. And we are sure that the same determination which has characterized him at V. M. I. will bring him success out in life. " Betcha five dollars, " [:jrjg ' aga yf) . j- » Sam Glazier, B.S.

" Young gentleman, your spirits are too bold for your years. " On a certain morning in the fall of 1918, every occupant of barracks came to a halt through sheer astonishment. A marvelous (?) tenor voice was heard dis- turbing the peaceful solitude. Was it McCormack, Caruso, or even Bert Williams? No, it was an artist of far greater caliber — no one else but Sammy coming to join the ranks of the rats of ' 22. And even so he danced and sung his way into the hearts of his fellow cadets; and ' tis rumored that many a " keydet, " inspired by Sammy, began singing to the multitudes of how great a hound he was. Sammy ' s height of ambition is to rival and perhaps equal his contemporaries, Ted Lewis and Bert Williams. There is no question that he will do so, for he is confident; and is it not said that confidence is half the battle? Sammy is as witty as Harry Lauder, at times, but it is rumored that he met his Waterloo when he wondered aloud as to whether Galax was a postoffice. Sammy is an outstanding star in his classes and many a laugh has he furnished his tired, jaded instructors. However, along with his histrionic ambitions lies that of an electrical engineer. What he does not know about internal-combustion machines, generators and motors is not worth knowing. " Chink " leaves his Alma Mater with the knowledge that we are all with him wherever he may roam; and we know that in his hands the glory, prestige, and spirit of old V. M.

He did, though not in the eyes of the Commandant; for he was the man higher up in the C. T. ' s, and ( lep put gray hairs in the Com- mandant ' s head over night. But " Dick " soon settled down to everything but shidy- ing. When finals came he decided to spend the summer with " B. D. " Many are the tales of his nightly deeds, until the " one " came to settle him down. As an upperclassman his chief amusement was in telling what a dog he is, and how little chance there is of having his biscuits cooked.

" I would rather have a fool to make me merry than experience to make me sad. " Accompanied by a bunch of " brother rats, " George Turner left the city by the sea in the fall of 1918 in search of education — academic, military and social. Consequently, he arrived at the Institute with a willingness to learn and listen to those who had preceded him a year. Little may be said of his rat year except that he endured the pleasures and hardships along with the rest of us, realizing that life was not all ease and comfort. As a Third Classman his military achievements were rewarded by the grade of corporal; but being of an unselfish nature, he realized that some of the others were running for the job. He could not deprive them of this honor, and consequently rejoined the ranks. At the beginning of his Second Class year, " Sarah " started upon a liberal arts career, where he has had his share of ups and downs like the rest of us, with a share of both " Maxes " and " Zips. " Four years have witnessed this young man at every hop, " tripping the light fantastic " and causing many a fair heart to flutter beneath such dimples. Turner is a true and loyal companion, admired and loved by all. His light- heartedness in times of frivolity and conscientious effort in times of duty are sure to bring him success in whatever line of endeavor he may pursue. Taken all in all, he has been a credit to himself, his class and V. M. I. Certainly there will never be enrolled a more worthy alumnus. i£S!SSI « 2« James Francis Greene. A.B.

C, was placed on the Institute ' s roll in September, 1917, and the following two years as an underclassman were marked by the usual " enlightening " experience of Rathood and the more hazardous life of a Third Classman. After a year as a civil engineer he decided that the Liberal Arts course would better fit him for the fields of the world ' s conquest. As a result he is one of the most accomplished graduates that the Arts Department has ever produced. During his sojourn at the Institute, " Jimmy " has contributed greatly to the success of the school annuals and to various other activities of cadet life. However, it Wcis not until his First Class year that he developed new lines of activity and gave up the afternoon hay long enough to make the cross-counlry team. In addition to this, he became exceedingly interested in the more " deadly " sex and displayed unusual activity in attending the hops, having pictures framed, and writing letters. " Jimmy " expects to enter the army as soon after graduation as possible and give the military a try. We feel sure at this, or ar y other line of endeavor, he will be successful. For he is possessed of those qualities that make it impossible to hold a man back. We have known him as a gentleman and a loyal friend, and it is with regret we say good-bye. " Just a few m.ore days.

He at once became very popular with the old cadets because he spent the first Sunday afternoon playing " Home, Sweet Home. " He was soon made the under- study of Tom Dulaney, eind it beceime his ambition to fill Tom ' s place. Upon returning m his Third Class year, " Billy " tried to soar from a third-stoop window; but, alas, Newton ' s laws were only loo true. Shortly after this, " Josh " became a member of the Cadet Orchestra, little thinking that he would some day be leader of that far-famed organization. Of course he had all the trials and tribulations of a Third Classman, but in February his military ability was recognized and he became a corporal. At finals he received a sergeantcy. But at mid-year make-overs (the Commandant ' s first chance to " get " him) Waxahachie ' s Pride beccune a private. So he has remained, and at the zenith of his First Class year was well on the road to become a third lieutenant and post- master.

It is considered the usual thing for hot temper and red hair to go hand in hand, but " Hass " is the exception to the rule and has always dis- played a salient good nature and a high sense of humor which one would hardly expect from a stolid " Valley Dutchman. ' On dreary evenings when barracks life becomes monotonous it is a favorite occupation for some of the favored few to gather in the room of the boy with the pretty " ha-arr ' and listen to the tales of life when he was young, and the deeds of " me an ' Bud an ' George an ' Squeek " lose none of their vividness. For " Hanky " is an excellent raconteur, and what that quartet " am ' t done am ' t worth doin ' . " In the academic line he first became a chemical lawyer, that is, he endeavored to persuade the molecules to follow his laws and not nature ' s; and he attempted to argue " Rat " into believing the book was somewhat in error, but finding this method was not conducive to good grades, " Hank " changed his tactics, and decided to accept the words of the book and the explanations of " Labby Jim ' s " commander. At the hops suffice it to say that Hamilton ' s crowning glory has proved a magnet to womankind, and the absence of gold lace has never been noticed. Now that this Virginia gentleman has won a " B.S., " we expect him to become a famous lawyer and perhaps in time be spoken of as " His Excellency. " " I be damned if I did.

" A proper man as one shall see on a summer ' s day. " The story of this individual dates back to 1917, when he spent a long, cold year in and about barracks. The following year he came back in time to give his present classmates a cordial greeting when they appeared upon the scene of slaughter. And the year after that he became an upperclassman, a sergeant and a civil engi- neer. Then he decided that practical experience would be more valuable than theoretical knowledge, and so when ' 21 were grabbing their dips he was working a transit on the outskirts of his native city. But the call of the Institute was too much for him. And he came back this year to " finish out his term " with ' 22, enlisting again as a member of the tribus Oleas. He has been a hard and steady worker, but has alwa,ys managed to glean what joy there is in " keydet " life and to establish himself in the esteem of his classmates. " Happy ' s " favorite poses are two in number: In the first we catch a glimpse of him in his room, his spectacles adjusted, his pipe producing a dense smoke screen in the atmosphere. In the second pose we see him over in the gym — at hop time. The spectacles and pipe are not in sight, but his attention is engaged — and very fully indeed — with somelh ' ing of far more importance. By his good-fellowship, congeniality and sincere nature Asher has won the love and friendship of ' 22. We don ' t believe we ' ll have to wait long before we hear of him in after life, for he is the sort of man to merit our trust and confidence. " How about some food?

How he keeps at the head of his classes; plays football, beisketball and tennis; swims; writes articles for Bomb and Cadet, etc., is beyond us. This young Edison always has a method of his own for each little thing. In fact, he knows everything worth knowing and a little more besides. This has been proven by his ability to withstand the lure of the fair sex. We firmly believe that when First Captain Booth reports the battalion to the devil in hell, he will say: " Sir.

" Short but et; for inches do iiake the In 1918 this young Lochinvar backed out of the east on the " two-car dinky " and cast his lot with the rest of what was to be the grand old Class of ' 22. He is known for his cheery disposition and his willingness to do anything for anybody. " Taze " has forever pursued the cunning rabbit ' s foot without success; for whenever an egg fight or a bombing party came off, he was always one of the unfortunates who got caught and had to " pat the bricks " for his misdoings. Nor is this " win- some one " unlucky only in such things, for he followed " P-Foot " and his alternating and direct currents, and so has hard luck every day. In his Third Class year he sat up straight and bounced and fell off with the rest of us in Col. Dockery ' s Cavalry Class; so in his Second Class year he joined the artillery and w«nt with the other " wagon soldiers " to Camp Knox, where he became acquainted with springy caissons, dust, and Walter Camp ' s Dirty Dozen Calesthenics.

" After an adventurous career at the Episcopal High School, and later with the Lexington " Squeeduncks, " Scott started out on his journey through the Institute. Despite the fact that he was a charter member of the " Local Boys ' Association, " and in his youth had frequently gazed upon parade from a baby carriage, he had his share of the difficulties of Rat days — " even as you and I. " He survived the bombing season of the Third Class, after being assigned fifty demerits by the Lord of the Nile for a little escapade incident thereto. During his upperclass years Scott has been a Liberal Arts artist, a tea hound, a bridge player, and a man of the world. He vacationed for a while at Plattsburg in the summer of ' 21, and ventured dauntlessly into the wilds of Canada. The remainder of the summer was spent m various summer resorts, the last of which was one of the popular hotels of Richmond. Scott ' s ability to weave wild tales of his deeds, past, present and future, is well known in barracks; but occasionally he tells the truth. He assumes the air of a woman-hater, but has hit the floor hard several times. We cannot find a more generous, big-hearted, loyal person than this " S. S. " And so it is not hard to account for his many friends. He has declared his intention to become the police department of Lexington upon graduation; but we suspect that he will spend a few years " subbing " and then drift over into financeering in South America.

Being a defender of everything military, it is natural for him to want to make soldiering his profession. He carries with him the friendship of all who knew him, and he faces the world with a pleasing personality and an enviable disposition that will distinguish him from the many other " Johnsons " to be found on every hand.

" And weighest thy words before thou givest them breath. " This distinguished-looking gentleman from the city by the sea slipped in with the tide on a cold winter day, and immediately received a warm reception from the Third Class. Like the rest of us, " Swede " was well entertained by this same Third Class during his initial year at the Institute. As a Third Classman our hero had a corporalcy thrust upon him and was for some time a wearer of the " bat wings. " Entering on his Second Class year, he chose to pursue the elusive electron under the " Wee Monk, " and in this hne he has barely escaped being a wearer of the stars. All this does not mean, however, that " Swede " is not an ardent follower of Morpheus. Although he is continually criticising the Artists for being " hay hitters, " we have never seen this young man neglect an opportunity to " snatch off a little hay " himself. The fair sex has made such an impression on our friend that he has not ceased to talk about them at any time, even in his sleep. Almost any night he can be seen composing an epistle to his " dearly beloved. Always cheerful, ever ready to help another, and a Irue friend, we have all learned his worth.

He had no sooner embarked upon the rough waters of rathood than his abilities were recognized, and he was requested to sing. His cadetship ever since has been one grand song.

He is the type of man who is not afraid to express his opinion to anybody, and this frank, open nature accounts for his many friends. From the time of his rathood when we first knew him as that " chubby little brown-eyed boy from Norfolk " (one lady ' s description), he has steadily risen in the estimation of the corps. But now, when it is time for him to leave, we realize especially the extent of his personality. His inherent good nature and distinct indi- viduality make him a character whose company is a joy to every one. He passes on with a few faults (chief among which is an insatiable desire for food), but with many virtues — loyalty, sincerity, evenness of temper — which have endeared him to his friends and classmates.

" But in spite of his athletic (Mexican) tendencies, Ray holds tremendous sway over the hearts of the calic — at least we judge so from the number of his daily " pink sheets " and his love of the Guard Tree and of other secluded spots. Although " Mac " did not make his initial appearance attired in the " dike " of a cow-puncher, he received a good deal of popular attention. " What ' s your name, mister? " " McCauley, sir, " was the reply. Then the fun began. But, aside from his early reception and his trifling mistake in slidmg into the Commandant ' s office, his Rat year was uneventful. The next year found him living up to the customary standard of a hard Third Classman. Since his ideas were incompatible with those of the numerous " subs, " he spent many happy Saturday afternoons searching for the long-soughl-for gold brick. But in his Second Class year he changed his Bolshevik ideas and surprised the corps by donning the coveted chevrons. During this lime it was not unusual to see him staggering down to the pressing shop under the weight of numerous uniforms, gray shirts, and overcoats. In his final year Ray enjoyed a distinction never attained before by any cadet: the Cadet Orchestra adopted a song especially for his benefit. So this chronicle ends. We hope he will blaze his trail to success as he has blazed it into the hearts of his fellow cadets. nture to say — " Newton Farragut McCurdey, B.S. NORFOLK, VIRGINIA Born 1901. Matriculated 1918.

As a matter of fact, we seldom see " Jimmie " so angelic and sober- faced. Usually he wears a broad grm (his feminine admirers call it a " sweet smile " ). To do full justice to him, this short history would have to be extended many pages. Briefly, he is a gentleman-robber of feminine hearts, is tennis champion of Keene Valley, N. Y., which gets its name — he says — from the keen calic found there; is beauty editor of this book, and is withal a good fellow. " Jimmie " smokes, drinks, chews (gum), and " cusses " ; all in moderation. His only real vice is his pernicious habit of getting drunk. He accomplishes this at hop time, not with alcohol, but with love, jazz and the intoxicating perfume of her hair. Nay, even the thought of the hops serves to set his head buzzing. Conse- quently his roommates have to tie him down before, during and after every hop. As a rat, " Jimmie " started to run, a habit which has earned him chevrons, the htle pf " chronic orderly, " and finally the name of " the only F. C. P. who ever really ran. " He is the only Liberal Artist we ever knew who really reads during library period. Perhaps that is because he aspires to be a publisher. He was always popular (especially when, as a rat, he wrote his name on a desk). The above-mentioned cheerful grin shines out as a bright spot in a dull world. So we wish him well in life.

" He came, he saw, but vv ' hat conquering he did was not worth mentioning — at least not in his Rat year. Lewin arrived late on the scene of his youthful disaster, but rapidly made up for lost time — or, rather, it was made up for him. Not having had enough hell, he turned up for his Third Class year, giving it a characteristic touch by returning late on furlough. The turbulent life of this period failed to daunt him. Lewm rightly selected " Arts " as the best department in which to demonstrate his ability to argue and to sleep. Since he is well equipped with an entertaining line of talk, his success in this particular branch of learning was assured. His anecdotes are unparalleled in the history of fiction. His business ability is an outstanding characteristic. His various exploits in barracks indicate his genius in salesmanship. Truly he will miss his calling if he applies himself to any other than a business career. The ladies claim a share of his attention, and in due course of time — two years, Lewin says — he expects to settle down in domestic tranquillity. To be serious, though, this character sketch can be summed up in a few words: Lewin is all right. His generous, gooci nature has won him many friends. All his faults are little ones and all his virtues are big. Success is sure to accompany him in all he undertakes. He has our sincere wishes for a brilliant future. " That ain ' t nothing-.

So when the Chesapeake Ohio ' s Virginia Creeper crawfished into Lexington with its rodent crew, way back in ' 18, he landed. At the end of his first year he was adorned with both chevrons and stars. He c?me through the dark and storn y Third Class year unscathed, and was again decorated for mental brilliancy and military powers. Ignoring the course in " Someille " under Col. Morpheus, he entrusted himself into the care of Col. P. F. Anderson, who tells us why currents alternate and why gases explode. Like so many others, his military decorations faded in direct proportion to the crease in his trousers; and now his pressing bill is as small as that of anyone else. His grip on his stars has never slackened, however, and he is one of the few who can regard the getting of their dips only as a matter of time. He has batted a thousand in the Christmas furlough league, and twice he has assisted in giving the city of Richmond a coat of red during Christmas week. The stories told by him and his ally, Martin, have ever been a source of delight to eager listeners around the firesides of barracks. Go it, Cary. Here ' s to your luck when you leave us.

Natu made thee to tempe Bob, an enthusiastic member of the " Irish Freedom Society, " entered into the " Great Adventure " the first week in September. 1918, and immediately settled down to busmess. However, even during the stirring period of his newly cadet- ship, he found an abundance of time for play and even for lighter things, including the hops and those attending. " Click " always has been — and probably always will be — a great admirer of the fair sex. This admiration has been returned to such an extent that he has more than once been undecided as to exactly which way to turn. But at present all doubt seems to have vanished, and " Trotsky " will probably be perfectly happy until the next dance. Bob has been more than successful in all his academic work. So far as we can see, he has never had to exert himself to keep his place with the best. Added to his natural brilliancy is an adeptness for making and holding friends. This is in part due to his smooth and even temper, as well as to his winning per- sonality. With the combination of these qualities, it is easy to see thai he will make a success of anything to which he aspires. The Class of " 22 wishes him godspeed. " Hey, Pat, 5th rev.!

" Who can fail to be acquainted with that rather corpulent person who always wears his cap on the side of his head and is always smiling? " Pete, " however, does not trifle all the time, for if the occasion requires seriousness he is perfectly able to become serious; but most of the time he has that rare ability to hide all his troubles under such a smile that to all appearances he is the most carefree man in barracks. In athletics, " Pete " stands out well to the front. For four years he has been on the football squad, and for three of these he has held down the position of center. His ability to use his head and keep his wits about him have made him a man to be feared by all opponents on the gridiron. As Historian of the Class of ' 22 he has performed his duties well and faithfully; and the class recognized his ability by choosmg him Valedictorian — an honor which he justly deserves. With his keen wit, steady judgment, and wholesome personality, " Otey " is sure to succeed after he leaves the Institute as he has succeeded here, for he has all the qualities requisite for an outstanding career. Whether we meet him in the wilds of South America, in the jungles of Africa, or perchance in his own home city, we ' ll always be proud to claim him as a classmate. " Oh, I say — .

On a sunny day in September, 1919, this young man entered the portals of the Institute and began his career as a " keydet. " He elected to join the ranks of the " meekest of the meek, " the Third Class Rats. After doing his " daily juties ' for a long year, he departed for home with great rejoicing and high ambitions. As a Second and First Classman, Joe has followed in the trail of " Monk " and his galloping amperes. Though he has never aspired to military honors, he covered himself with glory at Plattsburg and Montreal. Indeed, he was for some time a mighty sergeant at the infantry camp when three of our " captings " were but privates. Judging from the number of pink sheets from the " only one, " we would say that some fair one has a mighty hold on his heart. It has often been said that " You never can tell about those quiet ones. " However, Joe does love to hold a certain hand (?). Joe is quiet, steady and very dependable. We are all looking forward to the day when we will hail the new electrical wizard of the age. So it is with the best wishes that we bid him Godspeed and the best of luck for a long and successful life in the future. " I hope to tell you. " iiw Hiwui ' ttiimmmm George Edwin Morrison, A.B.

If you are an idol with feet of clay, beware the power of his fiery thrusts. He believes that all men are hypocrites, and he is in constant search for proof of his theories. To him everything in life is a sham except the Republican Party. Yet we have a shrewd suspicion that this cynicism is but a mask to hide his real char- acter. Once in a while we get a glimpse of the real George Morrison, who is a typical V. M. I. man, with all the love for his Alma Mater and her traditions thai this implies. He would share with a classmate his last cent, his Icisl cigarette, or what is better, his last drink. " Jarge " shares with Doc Henty the honor of being the oracle of all barracks rumors; but he differs from Doc in that his rumors usually come true. We expect him some day to succeed W. J. Burns as head of the U. S. Secret Service. Like most keydets, he loves the ladies. We have an idea that the main reason why he joined the Infantry unit was because he wanted to go to Plattsburg and " dog " with the far-famed French-Canadian belles across the border. If he does not choose a career as a detective, we will some day read about " Morrison, the great reformer who finally cut the rottenness out of politics. " Heave ho, George! " Well, lemme tell you!

A., this ambitious young man decided to undergo four more years of hard- ship at V. M. I. His previous military training stood him in good stead as a rat. At the beginning of his TTiird Class year, " Nate " was made a corporal, but due to hard luck and the obstreperous exertions of the " element, " he held his office only one month. By running, he Vi on back his vanished chevrons near the close of the year. After several unfruitful attempts to make a razor-backed horse listen to reason, " Nelse " decided that he was not destined to become one of those wild cavalrymen. The only alternative was to join the Infantry, so doughboy he is. Nathan is a Liberal Artist. Being faithful to his creed, he is often heard talking about " those dumb engineers. " Really, if the facts were not before our eyes, he could probably persuade us that the artists work harder than the engineers. Because of his ample flow of language and his fluent arguing, we think he is destined to be a lawyer. Nathan is quite a " beau " at Southern Sem. It is not an uncommon occurrence for him to spend his F. C. P. hours in Buena Vista. As a baseballer, " Nate " shines with stellar glory among the company nines. With a few more fielders like him, " B " Company would cinch the championship. " Nate " is kind hearted, a true and loyal friend. A finer gentleman can not be found.

The above tall, dark-haired personage may be observed here in all his glory, a long briar pipe between his teeth, thick clouds of smoke circling upward before him, and perhaps the " Cosmo " spread out on the table by his side. " Rudolph " trod the silent path of cadetship for a year and a half before he became a corporal, but at this time he blossomed forth in full military splendor. After a year as a sergeant, however, he descended to the O. G. " s and has been a faithful member of that noble society these long months. Next to B-l, his favorite haunt is in the luxurious armchair directly behind the statue in the library. Here he delights to spend a pleasant little two hours of meditation and deep thought. In the evenings a companionable game of bridge with " Possum, " Coonie " and " Dumbo " is prominently included in his schedule. " Chief " is very difficult to interview, but we have gleaned perhaps a few details that may describe him sufficiently. He may be in love, but not dangerously, so far as we can tell. But he may fool us some day. Constantly smiling, yet with a certain seriousness of nature, " Count " has made a multitude of friends by his droll humor and never-failing pleasantry. For four years he h as been a good pal and loyal classmate, and we only hope to see him in the days that come and to enjoy that contagious smile and irrepressible personality.

" The next thing he did was to pay his respects to the old cadets, whereupon the latter returned the favor with no little vigor — not to say enthusiasm — for some ten solid months. At the end of this harrowing period our self-same " Pat " reappeared with the stars of distinction and the large chevrons that fall to the lot of the best Rats. But while the stars remained, the chevrons disappeared with those of the other members of the " notorious thirl,y-four. ' This, however, marked the beginning and the end of all " Pat ' s " hard luck. Until Easter of " Pat ' s " Second Class year he pursued the even tenor of the sergeant ' s existence. It was then, in the springtime, that the young man ' s fancy turned in channels other than military, and " Pat ' s " name became " P-a-a-a-t, " sung to the accompaniment of daily " specials. " But even affaires d ' amour did not swerve " Pat " from the line of duty. This last year he has managed, as Quarter- master, to extract from Doc Henty, Inc., more work than any other living man has ever been able to, and to sponsor the business end of The Cadel. " Pat " is a gentleman of the first water, a true " keydet " of even temper and lovable disposition, a loyal and dependable friend.

Dan from Danville-on-the-Dan. To those who read these hnes with the purpose of knowmg this cadet, let it be said, first of all, that he is one that combines so much of the sunshine with his nature that to know him is to love him. " Dan ' s " career at the Institute began as the usual new cadet ' s does. The entertainment afforded the first year for a " Rat " was enjoyed with the real spirit. The result was that the next year found a " run- ning " corporal imbued with the Third Classman ' s idea of fun — to be heard but not to be seen. The vicissitudes of this class were so well endured that the finals of that year found him with a no-demerit record. Promotion to one of the first line sergeants came with his advent into the Second Class. At this time the star of a Bachelor of Arts diploma began to glimmer upon the horizon of " Dan ' s " academic life. As a First Classman this star had increased in magnitude until its reality was assured, and though it never assumed the brilliance and luster of a Mars at peri- helion, it is, however, now catalogued with the estabhshd stars in the firmament of the V. M. 1. graduates. " Dan ' s " unfaltering love for his Alma Mater and the appreciation of his duly toward himself and others commands the admiration of his many friends, who wish him the well-deserved happiness and success in the days to come.

I., and decided to tarry a while. After he had been here twenty-four hours he was not quite so crazy about it, but remembered how grand the " Incentive " thought he looked in uniform and smiled broadly. One dc y he awoke to find that Finals was at hand. After the first excruciating agony of that eventful week, he was more than ever in love with the Institute. He even decided to spend six weeks at Rockbridge Alum so that he might be near Lexington and keep in touch with familiar faces. Leigh ' s Third Class year was uneventful until Christmas, when the " Incentive " came up to make life happy for him. Then the authorities finally decided that he was not only a gentleman but a soldier, and made him a corporal, despite his protests. He was never a real mean Third Clsissman, because he could never resist the temptation to trifle with the Rats. When he became a Second Clcissman, he decided to take Liberal Arts. After a little training he became quite expert in the production of masterpieces. During his last year Leigh not only became a man of the world, but also studied hard, " maxed em up, " and kept the second stoop new barracks supplied with cigarettes. He is the truest friend a man could have, and the name of Leigh Pace will bring pleasant thoughts to every man in the six classes who knew him at V. M. I.

No one can say that " Ben " has not carried out this purpose from beginning to end. Always jovial and ready to break the monotony of this life with some fun, he has won for himself an enviable num- ber of friends in the corps. Among the fair sex, also, his ever-ready smile and joking disposition have made many a heart beat faster at the hops. However, behind the tendency to trifle is found a seriousness of nature that is bound to win out. In his Second Class year " Ben " elected to follow the rough road of Civil Engineering, and has proved himself a faithful disciple of " R. B. " His military career speaks for itself — a steady advancement from corporal to sergeant to lieu- tenant. He is the possessor of the coveted monogram in wrestling, and has proved a valuable asset to the football squad for several years. Such a personality as his is hard to describe, for it is not that of one man but of several, merged into one.

Hailing from the land of fair women and fast horses, he decided to cast his lot with us at the outset of our rathood days, and has been a loyal member of the tribe ever since.

" In an academic way Sam ' s only stumbling-block has been Organic, which " Old Rat " would include in his list of primers for the younger rodents to read, spot and masticate. But even such an ancient stumbling-block has not been able to trip him on his slow, steady march towards a sheepskin and the freedom of " cits " in the outside world. These four years, however, have been enough to make him friends for the rest of his life. And, indeed, he is a man well worth having for a friend, although he is affected by the moon at limes, and even thinks there is a Ia4y in it. Sam is going out to attach an M.D. to his name; and then he is going to be a real friend to all who need one. " Go to it, Sam.

' In September, 1917, we all thought that we were being honored by an Indian chief, but upon offermg him the pipe of peace we found that this brother Rat was " Nate, " a typical Southwest Virginian, and that we were honored by more than an Indian chief — a real man. From the very first " Nate " proved himself to be a soldier. He left us at the beginning of his Third Class year, and when the war was over Lieutenant Pendleton, Coast Artillery Corps, U. S. A., came into the arch and reported for duty in " Old Nick ' s " command. During his stay at the V. M. I. " Nate " has done his part to keep the Red, White and Yellow at full mast. In track he has held his own with the best, and in wrestling there are some who would like to know who put the " ton " in Pendleton. " Polar " chose the engineering line for his profession, and although he had Goldberg beat, sometimes, in his descriptions, the instructor did not often have a chance to say that it was wrong. It is said that all men have their faults and " Nate ' s " would probably be termed " awful " by the fair sex. As hard as we have tried, we have not succeeded in making him gaze upon the " angels " of the world. " Nate ' s " place at the Institute will be hard to fill, and he leaves with the best wishes of all. We have confidence in him and we know he will be a success.

This nearly gave him a chance at a golden harp instead of a gun. However, he was not worried by this mishap, and reported for duty early the next fall. Since then he has stuck with us through " hell and high water, " and we ' ve learned to love him as a real comrade and a true friend. He kept free from entanglements with the fair sex until he became a First Classman, when he " cut the guy ropes, " for the greater love had " knocked him for a goal. " This progressive son of Broadway (Va.) came within an ace of being a high- brow, but luckily missed it; he claims low-brow associates held him back. But he is by no means a dumbo. He knows his stuff, and only an innate sense of modesty keeps him from strutting it. Penny ' has more good qualities than a dog has fleas, so why enumerate them?

His quietness, fairness and sincerity give him a most pleasing and enchanting personality. He does not profess to be a ladies ' man, yet he has created many a furore at the hops. On one occasion it was said that he would not dance with any girl unless she weighed over two hundred pounds. In the Third Class year " Perk " spent most of his lime studying chemistry and calculus. As a result of these two subjects he decided to join " Cheippie ' s Hay Detail " for the remainder of his sojourn at V. M. I. In his unassuming way he has well upheld the dignity of the artists in every respect. By dint of hard work and perseverance, " Perk " won the coveted monogram in baseball, and he has been a pla,yer of no small note ever since.

" The lookest liki that kno rlike When a love for horses is combined with a love for the army the result is a cavalryman. That is what has happened to " Bill. " During the Third Class year, when the government sent mounts to V. M. I., he was supremely happy. On Saturday and Sunday afternoons, while other " keydets " were in the " hs y, " " Red " would be riding over the mountains of Rockbridge County. When it was necessary to decide which R, O. T. C. unit to enter, there was no indecision for him — he was for the cavalry from start to finish. His appointment as Troop Commander during his First Class year is ample proof of his success. " Bill " has held an office in the battalion ever since his Third Class year, although twice he W2is listed among the " busted men. " He could not help that; for when his red hair and Irish spirit both began working, something just had to " bust. " " Red " liked to hear the bombs, and anything that promised action or excitement appealed to him. Polo attracted him during his stay at ccimp, and he returned to V. M. I. full of enthusiasm for the sport. From the time it was pro- posed here he worked ardently for Its advancement. There are often doubts as to how his name is spelled, but never an,y doubt that he is from Texas. WTien " Bill " goes into the army next fall his Texas smile and energy will win for him the admiration and respect of his fellow men. " What ' s the dope? " Jack Berry Porterfield, B.S.

" A new planet appeared in the City of Lexington in the year of our Lord nine- teen hundred and eighteen. This sparkling star of wonder slowly advanced into our midst and then dropped like a meteor into barracks. " Jack " soon took a back seat, and from then on it was decided that he should be a novice.. His distinguish- ing characteristics of civilian life were retained, as well could be expected; for. aside from the tilt of his hat, his i eculiarities survived wonderfully. " Novice Jack, " disguised as a choir boy, along with Dan Cupid ' s other followers, decided to fight the battle of love. And, incidentally, he conquered all rivals. His name and that which goes with it are enough to signify his caliber as a Third Classman. During these days he always had a wild desire to free himself from the iron bands of discipline. Consequently, with this point in view, he would stray away at the most unexpected moments. The hurly-burly of his Third Class year was soon left far behind, and " Jack " filled the place left vacant by the departure of some sedate upperclassman. It is in this chair of success that he has proved himself a brother to yoif and me. He is leaving us to depart from our everyday life, in which he has been a joy. So, with those sterling qualities, a noble character and a good will, he will make good. Thomas Claiborne Rainey, B.S. KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI Born 1901. Matriculated 1918.

It rolled in from the middle west early in the fall of 1918, laid away those " cits " and dawned forth in the gray for a ten months ' session as a rat. Suffice it to say that those days finally passed, and the thrill and joys of being an old cadet came to this youthful soul. As an old cadet he was ever quiet and subdued, preserving an appearance of unruffled dignity to all. Appointed a provisional corporal during the " dark ages, " he came forth when the storm was over as a real " corp, " and he was among those present when the sergeants were read out at Finals. All during his Second Class year, he " seen his duty and done it noble. " But, alas! Another Finals, and the climax of res militaris loometh into sight — and gone were the chevrons. Our noble " barrister " was to be an O. G. To say the least, he has done right by the mess hall. What encouragement would the menu have had without his hearty support thrice dally? He has no favorites there, downing one and all Comhinatiae Ashburnae alike. The off-hours are spent in the P. E. at a similar occupation. Throughout his period of cadetship " Owl " has ever exhibited that exclusiveness (denoted by that usual cigar) which points to the deep thinker and the fertile brain. His abundant wit (contained within and emitted on special-extra occasions), cheerful disposition, and good nature have made for him many friends at the Institute. These will always remember him as a loyal classmate, unexcelled in fidelity, to be depended upon in all circumstances. ' ■You tickle my simple soul.

" Kind reader, picture in your mind gentle " Machine Gun, " he represented above, sitting placidly in his study in G-2, surrounded by his veritable galaxy of pictures; for truly " M. G. " is a lion among ladies. Coming from Strasburg High School, " Rosy " thought he would step out in the military world, so very rapidly he ac- climated himself to this new environment. Perhaps he was somewhat abashed by the ordeal of the rat year, but he kept on with grim determination and went steadily up the ladder until he became a lieutenant at Finals, 1921. Not only in military and academic work has he achieved success, but also in athletics, and in the social world. For three years he has been a hard-working man on the basketball floor ; and for four years he has been a member of the track team. Among the " literati " he has also been prominent, showing much interest and ability in the activities of the Dramatic Club, Literary Society, and the Bomb. But not among the " calic " alone has " Rosy " been a favorite. He seems to win the hearts of all who know him, for his habitual smile, unselfish disposition and congenial temperament endear him to all. " M. G. " Is one of the most earnest, hard-working men in barracks. Always willing to offer his help and ready to do a good turn, he is one of the truest of friends and the best of companions. He has few faults. Loyal and generous to an extreme, he cannot avoid meeting success. We predict a great future for him in the world of men. " Dad burn it, shut up! " Scott Reynolds, B.S.

" " Twenty-two " had already started on its journey when this tall, handsome young Georgian, with a smiling countenance and a contagious drawl, fell in line as a Third Class Rat. In spite of all the " sheenies " and disorders that could be arranged for him to participate in, he weathered the slorm m fine shape and became a true and loyal member of the tribe. His " running " ability was evident even in his Rathood days, and in the spring of ' 21 he obtained his just reward in the shape of a ser- geantcy. At finals he rejoined the clean sleeves; but this has caused him no worry, for he seems to have led a happy, contented life with the rest of the B. A. P. ' s. To say that Scott took civil engineering would indicate that he is a highbrow. Yet think not that he allowed even the endurance-test problems that Col. J. A. Anderson sprung upon him to cause him much worry or loss of sleep. " Far better, " said he, " to emulate those other famous Georgians and mix in play a-plenty. " So Scott has been in evidence whenever the occasion demanded at our hops, and appears to be very successful in attracting the attention of the ladies over there. Good-natured, warm-hearted, alwa,ys cheerful, he has seemed to possess a knack of making friends. Certainly this has been the case in barracks — and at several young ladies ' schools not far off. He plans a civil engineering career for the future. We predict that he will be successful, for he has always displayed here signs of confidence and unfailing will power to finish what he begins.

" Scene: Parade ground, with onlookers. Time: E-arly morning or late afternoon. The Regimental Band bursts forth into the latest (?) tune; and this D ' Artagnan with the clear enunciation and princely walk steps out. This is the culmination of Ruxton ' s military career at the institute. Since the days when he showed the O. T. C. at Camp Lee what a V. M. I. Rat could do, he has progressed, through his military ability and constant running, to one of the highest of the military honors, that of Cadet Adjutant, and he has become Battery Commander of the artillery unit as well. His worth as a varsity end on the " Flying Squadron " will be hard to equal for next year ' s team. As for the hops, it would make " The Sheik " look like an amateur at the game to compete with Ruxton ' s masterful exhibitions of the Terpsi- chorean art. Results: Ask the girls! A man who holds to his convictions and backs his idea of the right for all he is worth, he has established himself in the Class of 1922; and as a comrade upon whom we can always depend to " come across with ' the goods, " he has won a place in the hearts of his friends, and even his few enemies are forced to admit his worth. When " Auld Lang Syne " is played this Finals the Corps will lose a true cadet who has ever held to his own individualism and personality.

He held informal concerts after each meal all through his first year. On reluming to school as a mean Third Classman, " Stank ' s " first official act vk as to sign up for the artillery. His dashing appearance on horseback, coupled with his warlike name, quickly won him the third nickname listed above. " Light Horse " is a civil engineer of note. He says his specialty is construction work. Some day we will probably gaze on many magnificent buildings and ex- claim with awe, " I was a brother rat of the builder! " As an athlete, Harry has done his bit for V. M. I. He is a member of the Cross-Country Team and showed up well last fall against V. P. I. He is also a star member of the famous " Woof " Company Baseball Team. Last, but not least, he is a lady-killer. At the hops all the calic fall for him. He has even managed to capture that elusive creature, the local calic. He is like a sailor — has a girl in every port. We wonder why he spent so much time in Knoxville last summer? A better man would be hard to find- He always has a smile emd a hearty handshake for every one. A man with such a disposition can not help succeeding.

" After the family name had been brought twice previously to the Institute, Walter decided to follovir suit. Consequently we find him abiding in the old gray walls during the stormy days of ' 18- ' 19. Counting the number of bricks in the unfor- tunately near-by smokestack helped to supply some of the information so eagerly sought for and requested by the Third Classmen. " Robbie ' s " ability to play base- ball enabled him to be a factor in the victories of the old " E " Company baseball team, that renowned nine which won the hotly-contested series for the ice cream prize. Upon Walter ' s return as a Third Classman he entered " D " Company, studied hard, and joined the cavalry, incidentally going down to Camp Oglethorpe in the summer of ' 20. In the academic line of duty the marvels of electricity seemed to have a singular appeal for " Robbie, " and he became determined to find the answer to " Monk ' s " question, " Which way does the current go, huh? " So he selected the " Double E " course and has been madly chasing electrons ever since. Walter possesses a generous disposition which few of us are forhinate enough to have. We are truly proud of his friendship. With his hard-working ability, we are sure that he will " bat ' em up " in the outside world just as he has done at V. M.

You have probably been wailing for an opportunity for some time to see this quiet, handsome and well-known inmate of the V. M. I. Winter Resort. Upon matriculation shortly after Christmas, " Charlie " was imme- diately greeted by the Third Class as a whole and was given a cordial reception. However, he paid them little attention, since he w£is occupied in corresponding with his many feminine admirers. You can readily understand this if you scrutinize the above picture. Like all the rest of us, as a Third Classman he fell that he must take a paternal interest in all the Rats by having them pay numerous visits to his apartments. During the First Class year " Charlie " began lo shine, especially at Stuart Hall. Many plans and attempts were made to visit this Mecca, but they were all frustrated by the Commandant. Despite the fact that he was a gentleman of leisure and liked to take an afternoon stroll on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons, he did well in his studies and in his military activities. Although he was always friendly with the authorities, Charles was never known to miss a hop, and if one would listen to him he would spend hours in relating his conquests and defeats on the ballroom floor. " Twenty-two ' s " farewell to you, Charles, is said with the hope that your ambi- tions will be realized — and with confidence en I ' avenir.

He has been the best Iwo-miler at the Insti- tute for the past two years, and he has shown up well in South Atlantic meets. Last fall he made the cross-country team and won a medal in the meet at Roanoke. He took up civil engineering chiefly because of his love for the open. Naturally he accompanied the engineering unit to Camp Humphre ys. The astonishment of his roonmiates on hearing that he had become a Sunda y school teacher was changed to merriment on finding out that his class was composed entirely of young girls. None can determine as to his future; that remains with him. He can be assured, however, that he leaves V. M.

M. I. and of having himself attended a near-by institution of similar character, he knew the horrible details of the existence at this place before he came here. There are some, however, who are at variance with this opinion. They claim that, instead of hero- ism, it was unadulterated idiocy, or that it was because he had been a potential menace to the feelings and affections of the women throughout the country, and it was for their welfare that he was exiled to this place, where his fatal charms are given but a few periodical chances to wreak their havoc with the feminine sex. Now that the end of his confinement draws near, we suspect that the lesser Lotharios of Birmingham, k nowing that it is futile to compete with the incomparable " Gus, " will be plunged into deep gloom. After a perilous voyage over the troubled surface of the Rat and Third Class years, he arrived at the point where a man using good judgment can have a com- paratively safe trip until graduation. But, as was characteristic of him, instead of choosing Liberal Arts, he delegated himself as a neophyte in the mystifying realm of Electrical Engineering. We will rather hate to say good-bye to him and his counterpart, " Possum, " for we have what you might call a paternal atfection for them both. " Let ' s crack down.

During his entire cadetship " Red " has been on the varsity squads in football, basketball and track, winning his mono- gram in football and basketball. His military ability was recognized early in his Rat year. As a result he has steadily risen in rank to the final goal of Cadet Captain.

' In the fall of 1918 those who had arrived early gazed out of the window and saw a great crowd approaching. On closer scrutiny, however, they saw that it was only " Ooten, " the sinewy, sun-burned son of the sizzling sands of the Lone Star State. Many limes did Willy " hunt his hole " during this first year, and with the rest of us suffered the hardships of a rat; but in the end he came out whole and hearty — that is, most of him did, for he lost exactly fifty-seven pounds and eight ounces during these weary ten months. In our Third Class year " Bill " became the proud possessor of the coveted corporal chevrons, and since that time he has never been lacking chevrons of some sort. As a Second Classman he was right guide of " E " Company, and one could see him shimmying along by the side of John Horace going out to drill every day. Caring not for the artillery, ineligible for the engineers, and unable to find any elephants in the cavalry stables, " Wee Willie " cast his lot with the infantry unit and journeyed to Plattsburg after finals. On our return this year we found him wearing lieutenant ' s chevrons and acting as Tom Douglas ' prime minister in " E " Company. He was appomted cheer leader and has led us cheer- fully all year. Being an honest lad, he was also appointed secretary-treasurer of the Y. M. C. A., and has discharged the many duties of this office with credit. And now, " Bill, " in parting we wish you the best success in life and are sure that if you tackle the problems of the future as you have those of the past you will come out on top. •■How in hell do you fellows eat in the messi hall, anyway ?■■ .-.-.t tMtwowfflaas; c Stephen Osborne Southall, Jr., B.S.

He says what he thinks; he means what he says, and, when once he undertakes a task, he never stops until he accomplishes it. For these and for his many other good qualities one can not help admiring him. Although he is not exactly conceited, it is a known fact that he has a habit of looking down on most of us. Even his roommates look up to him, he is so tall. " Judge " likes — nay loves — to argue. He certainly possesses the gift of the " gab. " This long, tall, lanky Dinwiddian " jined " the cavalry at V.

" During the term of 1918-19 very few men in barracks knew of Cadet Southgate except in an official way, owing to his quiet and unassuming nature. Then, without warning, the person in question " cut loose " early one Easter morning, and estab- lished a name for himself both in the eyes of his classmates and in those of his superior officers. For the remainder of the year he spent his Saturday afternoons hunting for the Old Gold Brick and reconsidering his departure from the straight and narrow path. The Third Class year foimd " Herb " back at the Institute with one overwhelming desire — to master the many stumbling blocks set forth by " Monk, " B. D. " and other taskmasters of the " Hopeless Third Classman. " And it is needless to say that he met all his difficulties with success. TTiroughout the entire four years of his stay vnth old ' 22, " Herb " has been a man who has said little but done much. Many honors and positions of responsi- bility have been thrust upon him, but he has accomplished every task with the same modest, unpretentious thoroughness. He is the kmd of fellow who can be depended upon for a job well done. Tis said that while he was in France last summer, " Herb " created quite a sensation among the soci,-l circles of Paris. However, he refuses to divulge any secrets whatsoever, and we have to be contented with knowing that he had an enjoyable trip. At present he intends to assume the title of adventurer after he has received the sheepskin. He has high hopes and expectations of finding several million dollars which lie at the bottom of Chesapeake Bay. Go to it, " Herb! " " Great Caesar ' s Ghost! " T___-.iSOZ)l. ' f!w._-i.,_ .

" Coloners " smile, disposition and constant habit of helping everyone have made him one of the most popular men in the corps. In his Rat year Frank resolved to prove to himself and his fellow cadets that he could make good in the military line. His efforls were not in vain, for he progressed through all the grades to Cadet Captain. The Third Class year demon- strated that he could live up to the traditions of that stormy class, for he immor- talized the class numerals in the usual way. Since mathemat ics presented so many difficulties, Frank heaved a sigh of relief when he reached the Second Class and could tread the rosy path of the Liberal Arts. With very little effort he was able to make good in his chosen course, and even to wear stars. Taking hold of The Cadet wilh an earnest resolution to make it a success, he has put out a paper of which the corps and all alumni may well be proud. If " Colonel " makes a success of the study of law next year as he has of his cadetship, we could wish no better future for any man. His personality will always win the devotion and respect of everyone wilh whom he is associated, for he has shown himself to be a true Southern gentleman. " That ' s fine!

Webster did not know Frank. If he had, the dictionary would have been smaller, for instead of each of the above names, he would have written, " Francis L. Summers. " Frank spent the days of his rathood as a member of ' 21 ; but, falling in love with old Res Militares. he decided to winter at West Point. Finding, however, that the Government had failed to recognize the advantages (?) of Liberal Arts, he relumed to barracks in the fall of ' 19. West Point lost and V.M.I, gained thereby. Upon joining ' 22, the old love flamed again in his heart, and today he holds the second highest office in the corps. As an athlete, Frank has not confined himself to any one branch of sport. The fact that he alone has the distinction of wearing a monogram for each of the four major sports shows how successful his efforts have been in that direction. Success has dogged his footsteps. Those who know him are confident that in hfe ' s mad whirl his record will be but a repetition of the victories and achieve- ments of his four years at the Institute. ' ' !SaSgS!

Ever since then this handsome youth from Tidewater Virginia has lived only for the lime when he can forget bugle calls and ceremonies. Perhaps he has another anticipation in mind, for Charlie is quite an idolizer of the fair sex. Every day he can be found nervously inquiring at the arch for his mail. True to the V. M.

Nay; rather is he one of those of whom mademoiselle coyly exclaims, " Isn ' t he the cutest thing? " — the " cute " one being a little over six feet tall. During his Third Class year " Charlie " was knighted with a corporal ; but the honor was too good to last, for his name was among those of the thirty-four martyrs who so suddenly met their fate in the early part of February of that year. He regained his rank, however, and pushed up his chevrons in his Second Class year also. He has been a member of both football and baseball squads for three years, despite the fact that he is a " typical Liberal Artist.

Ere his Third Class year had begun, " Terrible Tillman " realized that he must live up to old traditions, and therefore decided to follow the line of least resistance. As a block runner he had no equal, and like Caesar of old, his strategy has remained a monument to that ignoble art. Being a natural-born user of chemicals, as a Second Classman " Weeze " elected to wield a test tube, and since that time he has spent many hours experimenting with the various hydroxyl derivatives of the ethane group as regards their effect on the human body. Like all refined " keydets, " he is a tourist of international fame, and his name may be seen gracing the penalty sheet of " Ackus Backus " at all times. Whenever he is lucky enough to escape tours he may be seen " catching air " in the residential section of East Lexington, where he has a host of admirers among the fair sex.

In the year following the war " Joe " managed to get the Marine Corps out of his system and then to settle down to hard work.

In his Second Class year " Joe " began to show a marked ability in his academic work, standing well in his classes and demonstratmg that a man can do best in that field in which he is most interested.

As a First Classman he became captain of the wrestling team, but injuries received in practice kept him from having another winning year. He has yet to be thrown. His athletics were not confined to wrestling alone, for he is also a monogram man in football. There are few better defensive fullbacks than he. The hops appealed to " Gob, " but he always felt the necessity of restraining little " Reg, " who was inclined to continue the wild life of Farmville.

The population of this metropoHs decreased by a large percentage when Harry departed for V. M. 1. to spend his four long years of cadet life. Immediately upon his arrival at the Institute many old cadets asked " Woody " if he had come direct from the White House. In spite of his denial, many recep- tions were held in his honor, at which he received varied presents and tokens of favor. But " Harry " took it all calmly; nothing has ever seemed to worr;y him. Ever since his Rathood days he has been somewhat of a highbrow. Electricity appealed to him from the first. Finding the course interesting, he had little trouble in understanding " which way the current goes. " Practical electrics has always had a strong hold on him, and his cimbition is to be an Illuminating Engineer. Perhaps some day he will see to it diat the cadets at iV. M.

" This, however, was not the only one of his many ambitions. Bemg able to take anythmg to pieces from a toothpick to a generator, his technical inclinations were cast into the hands of S. W. A. However, these minor trivialities were noth- ing m his young life. Gazing on his " Wally Reid " -like countenance, one does not wonder that many a fair damsel has found her heart pitter-pattering a wee bit faster. And that is not the half of it. His terpsichorean art has added to his many feminine conquests, and his gallery of beautiful ladies would do credit to the beauty section of the Red Boo}(. His big-dog tendencies and his marvelous capacity for hitting the hay are characteristics, and at the same lime he manages to find lime to chalk up to his credit a fair share of the good old maxes. His penchant for filling " inside and outside " straights have been marvels to his fellow " keydets " during the wee smalt hours of the dawn.

Richmond, Va. HE first hundred years are the hardest. Whatever consolation that may be for us around eighty years from now, we cannot tell. We have completely passed through two of our four years as a class at the Institute, and we are well along in the course of a third. We have finned out together as Rats ; we have shot our bombs as a Third Class should ; and now we wear our two stripes with pride and feel, like the Roman gladiator, that " ye do well to call me chief. " On the eighth of September, men, " brother Rats " in ' 19, and Bolsheviki of last year, backed and twisted again into Lexington on the B. O. and collected beneath the towers of V. M. I. Upon our return it was necessary to decide on the course in which we were to become distinguished — or " extinguished. " The question was necessarily a trying one — whether we would become devotees of Dixon, followers of " Piggy, " hench- men of " Monk, " or disciples of " Ole Rat. " The division came along the usual lines, with Liberal Arts somewhat the favorite. In the field of athletics we have always been well represented. This year, among the rest, we gave Hunt, Costolo, and Caldwell to the football team; and Kyle, Cure, and Maloney to the basketball team. In baseball we are represented by Page, Southall, and Hart. We reelected Hunt, Caldwell, and Costolo as president, vice-president, and historian. Mays and Casey were chosen to lead the " greatest Final Ball that ever came off at V. M. I. " The crowning point of the year came on December 3, when we put on our class rings. The Class of ' 23 is getting well along in life. As we grow older in V. M. I., knowing the present is ours, we hold increasing pride for the past and greater hopes for die future. Our outlook on life, which varied extremely as Rats and Third Classmen, lias again changed completely ; and we face the time when we will be First Classmen, and only one more year of our Institute life will lie before us. The first hundred are the hardest. For three years we have been a class. As First Classmen we believe that we will so act as to make all V. M. I. men proud of us as a class, and every man of us proud to say, " I, too, am a member of the Class of ' 23. " H. P. Costolo, Historian.

J. : =@llllf ' aftZTX - Tkird Class History FTER a year of arduous service marked by hardships and miseries of Rat- hood, the Class of ' 24 at last climbs to the second round of the ladder. Kind reader, have you ever had two months seem hke two weeks? Thus our summer furlough seemed to us when we again boarded the " Sun- set Limited " for Lexington. But the spirit of the Institute was still with us, and we were glad to return to greet our classmates and the rest of the school, who would now look upon us as something more than " God ' s dumbest creatures. " Shortly after our arrival came the " thrill that comes once in a lifetime, " when we heard for the first time the turn-out: " Important meeting of the Third Class in G-3 right away. " At this meeting we reelected Faulkner president and Jordan vice-president, two men who are fully capable of leading the class. The regular routine started September 8, when reveille, classes, drill, and taps came in their regular order. At Coach Clarkson ' s first call for football candidates many ' 24 men trott ed out on the hill. From these there developed several letter men, including Faulkner, Ryder, and Attwell. Others who showed up well were Carlton, Huntt, P., Briggs, C, Saunders, T., Baird, J., McColgan, Ferguson, Doty, and Nolan. Again this year we were fortunate enough to have the Christmas furlough granted on the merit system. About fifty per cent of the Third Class won this furlough, leaving the rest behind to make up their studies. Like all other Third Classes, we had our troubles at Christmas time, but we succeeded in getting through the fire safely, and started on the smooth road toward June. In basketball we were well represented by such men as Ryder, Attwell, Carlton, and Denton. At this writing it is too early to make any prophecies about baseball and track; but we have no doubt that there will be a number of ' 24 men represented. Now we are all looking forward to next year, when we shall have earned the coveted ring, and the blue and white of ' 24 will be one step further toward the final goal. We expect an unusually large number of the class to return next fall, each to choose his own course of study, remembering that: " Ships sail East, Ships sail West, With the selfsame winds that blow; It ' s not the gales. But the set of the sails That determine the wa y they go. " We have a good class, men. Let ' s stick together and come back strong next year, thus making this, the Class of 1924, one of the best in the history of old V. M. I. Giles H.

F Shanghai, China 166 Fourtn Class History HE hot September sun shone pitilessly upon us, " new cadets, " as we came in groups of two and three to join the youngest class at V. M. I. After matriculation a sergeant showed us how to " fin out, " and led us through the courtyard, ' midst scowling faces and growling voices, to the Com- mandant ' s office. Here we were assigned to companies and rooms. Thence the sergeant took us to the military store and arsenal, where we received khaki " Rat pants, " large blunt-toed shoes, gray shirts, and very greasy rifles. So was born the Rat Class, the future Class of ' 25. Then came drills. From morning until night we tramped the dusty parade ground, driven on by relentless drillmasters. But soon, as the old cadets began to arrive, drills became less frequent, the regular routine was started, the first nightmare was over. One of the most noteworthy incidents of the first months was the first " shirt-tail parade. " At 1 1 :30 P. M. every Rat in barracks rushed out on the stoop, beating a bucket and yelling. The fury lasted about five minutes, when it was deemed expedient to beat a hasty retreat at the approach of the O. D. On the day of the Virginia game we were released from " Rathood. " Although this was but for a short day, we will never forget the thrill. The Richmond trip gave us another break in the monotony, although this was mixed with the hardship of our first long parade. With nothing but Christmas furloughs to look forward to, we settled down to " play the game square " and " make the grade. " And make it we did — except for some few of us who apparently preferred V. M. I. and two more days of old cadet life to a trip home. After Christmas the monotony of examinations was broken by the shooting of two hundred and fifty Roman candles about 1 1 :30 one night. As a result of this escapade we were required to drill on Wednesdays and Saturdays and were put under confine- ment for two weeks. In athletics ' 25 shone. On the varsity football squad we had Farley, Watkins, Ferguson, Gray, and Barbour, with many others on the scrubs. In basketball White, Rigsbee, Gray, Roane, Pack, and FerguEon showed up well. As prospects for baseball we have Pillow, Pack, Hatchett, and Nugent. Almond and Kellogg, W., were chosen president and vice-president, respectively. Under their leadership we hope to carry on the work of V. M. I. and place the name of ' 25 among the best.

Summer School HE 1 92 1 Summer School inaugurated a new abode for those cadets who had been mentally too inert to make the required stands in their studies. The Alum was deserted and the Institute purchased as an appropriate setting for its unfortunates in a scenically charming spot possibly the most historic and ancient hostelry in Virginia, the Rockbridge Baths Hotel, and leased enough adjacent ground to serve as site for the tents of the enrolled summer students ; the hotel itself comprised headquarters and the hke. A compensation for the somewhat crude conveniences of the camp was its location, only a couple of miles from Wilson Springs, the summer resort of Rockbridge County, and separated only by the road from a camp of really charming young girls. The term started with a short meeting of the faculty and cadets at which the latter received outlines of their studies and admonitions as to their future conduct, after which they scattered with various aims ; to pay their respects to such of the ladies as they knew across the way, to open charge accounts at the settlement stores, to make friends with the bucolic neighbors and the like. The long summer days marched by. Fancies for study were indulged in the morning and, in some few cases, in the early afternoon. This period, however, served the majority of the cadets either as a club hour or as a time for siestas for rejuvenation sufficient to allow the observance of such social amenities as swim- ming, riding and walking parties vvnth the neighboring campers, or for the devotees of more strenuous enjoyment, the playing of baseball and horseshoe pitching. A really creditable team was made up of the pseudo-athletes. In the evenings studies were briefly cultivated before the night ' s social activities, dates with the neighboring campers, or nearby dances started in full force. Then Messrs. Calculus, Analytics and Mechanics were left in the background. After the final ball had completed the list of social functions the keydet plodded his weary way to the Institute. : v( sM: = yiW 1922 Major Albert B.

First Lieutenant R. B. Madigan, U. S. Field Artillery Assistant P. M. S. and T. The R. O. T. C. It was after an absence of five years that I returned to the institute in April just passed. I noted many changes when I reappeared on the scene, but practicallv all of them were in the natural order of things. Having gone the rounds of the post, I found myself at four o ' clock in the afternoon reposing on a bench by the parade ground. I was waiting to see the six companies sally forth to drill, sally back into barracks, and sally forth again to parade. Little did I dream of the sweeping changes that had taken place. I could not imagine V. M. I. without the daily dose of close order and dress parade. Picture my consternation when companies appeared made up exclusively of rats. " Where are the old cadets? " I inquired of a passing cadet armed with a sketching board. " Oh, they are scattered all around at unit drill, " was the enlightening reply. With this he disappeared, and I resolved to see for myself. Just then a tractor came rumbling down the road dragging a big gun. " What does that mean? " I yelled broadcast to the twenty or more cadets hangin.g on. " Motorized artillery, " they replied in chorus. As much in the dark as ever, I started down in front of barracks, where a big truck was being loaded with cadets. Upon inquiry I was in- formed by the regular officer in charge of the detail that it was the infanti-y bound for White ' s fann to study terrain problems. He added that if I wished I could accompany them. I wished, and did. We bumped along to White ' s farm; on the way it was pointed out to me that this great rolling field had been purchased by the Institute for the use of the cavalry and artil- lery units. Arriving there I left my companions to their own devices and sat on a fence to watch a great commotion that was evidently some sort of exercise or drill. " TTiey are 200 r Hi = ll ilf practicing polo, " said a cadet who, having fallen off his horse, had tied his fractiou s animal to the fence and was at the time of my approach nursmg his bruises near by. " But when I was here " I began. " Oh, yes, you knew the old V. M. I., " he interrupted, " when they had infantry drill and parade every day. But now it ' s different. We belong to the R. O. T. C. " (With this astounding assertion he proudly exhibited the insignia on his shirt pocket.) " The government pays us fifty cents a day for doing this, " he continued. " We have infantry, cavalry, engineers and field artillery. All cadets of the Second and First Classes belong to the R. O. T. C. Upon graduation they are commissioned lieu- tenants in the Officers ' Reserve Corps. " Just then we were startled b} ' a loud explosion. " What ' s that? " I asked. " Oh, that ' s the engineers. They built a bridge over the Nile and now they are demolislring it with T. N. T. " Duly impressed, I thanked my friend for his information, admitted that I was on the right track, agreed with him that we live to learn, and thereupon wended my weary way barracksward. O tempora ! O mores ! First Captain and Staft 201 aK he tmUfP - -»»«is!E " S£:i » ' EYES RIGHT IN REVIEW FRIDAY P.M. OVER THE BAR ON TO THE MESS HALL ALONG THe ROAD FINAL FOfifiAT ON-l£ ZI FIRE AT miL 202 v0S5q= @mB Engi igC amp In ihe " wee sma ' hours " on the morning subsequent to the 1921 final ball a noble little band of thirteen gathered at the Lexington terminal and began a never-to-be-forgotten journey. " Wild Bill " Drewry and another soldier — Old Taylor — led the contingent, and under the able guidance of these two the student engineers reached Camp Humphreys as per schedule, and carrying suit cases upside down. Having finally become oriented, they were assigned to quarters and other things. From then on it was nearly all work and no play. A. A. Humphreys is situated about seventeen miles from Washington; it covers ten square miles, lies six feet in dust, and is shaded by thousands of invisible trees. A more ideal spot could not have been found for an engineer camp, however; Humphreys is very close to the office of the chief of engineers, any size and kind of river craft can dock there, a four-mile spur connects with a main line railroad, the Washington-Richmond highway skirts the northern edge, there is an abundance of water suitable for camp use, and natural resources desirable for military training abound. One would want to find no better spot for the training of engineer reserve officers. The instruction was thorough and of the highest quality. Although the camp baseball games had practically ended before the V. M. I. contingent arrived, they upheld the reputation of the Institute in the intercompany athletics. Company " A, " of which all V. M. I. men were members, won the inter- company meet. Drewry took first place in the discus and shot-put and second place in the broad jump. Parrott placed third in the discus and won a gold medal in ihe swimming relay. The V. M. I. representalives bore credit to their Alma Mater in res mililaris as well as in athletics. (Nevertheless, I have come to the conclusion that Sherman was right. And when I die — it ' s all right to bury me, and it ' s all right to put a bottle of corn at my head and one at my feet — but — don ' t put any u-n-i-f-o-r-m on me, " cause just as sho ' as I ' m living noi» I ' ll have to go up to ole St. Peter and say. Sir, Cadet reports to answer delinquencies, " and I ain ' t answering no incriminating questions). Cavalry Camp The cavalry contingent stayed for five w eeks at Fort Ethan Allen, Vermont, just outside of Burlington. Quite contrary to all expectations, the camp was really enjoyed by everyone. The R. O. T. C. students were very comfortably quartered; moreover they were given a great deal of time off duty, so much time, in fact, that the fort took on the aspect of a club rather than that of an army camp. The outstanding event of the first fortnight was the celebration attendant upon the Fourth of July. Probably the jolliest party at this time was that which made a week- end trip to Montreal and became imbued with the inspiriting atmosphere of that delight- ful city. After the Fourth, pistol range and preparatory rifle range work kept the student cav- alrymen occupied for a week ; then they moved down to the shore of Lake Champlain to lent through another week. The lake, which impressed them all with its beauty, dark blue water and gray stone headlands with vivid green caps, made life in the tented camp delightful. Minor tactics in the morning and polo practice, baseball and swimming in the afternoon made up a very pleasant program. Upon the return to barracks the competitive athletic events of the camp took place. In these V. M. I. was notably successful. Our men won the baseball championship and gave Norwich a race for her money in polo, although the Vermont cadets had the advantage of several years ' experience in the sport. At boxing and wrestling the same cadet proved himself the best of his weight. No other institution had more than two champions in the athletic events, while V. M. I. ' s onl downfall was in tennis. The final formation found the V. M. I. contingent eager to be away, of course, for home pulled strong. But none of the men have any but pleasant recollections of their experience at the camp, and all like to talk over their exploits in every direction. 205 : S M£ = ®MB Artillery Camp After an exciting finals, the artillery unit assembled at the station to bid good-bye to " Si " and incidentally to entrain for Camp Knox. Our sjjecial train consisted of one coach, no lights, chicken-wire window screens, no sheets, one porter and fifty-nine cadets. The trip was full of lamentations and dirt; the cadets full of " fond memories, " cuss words and ; and the porter full of " Ding Dong ' s " liniment. We arrived at camp on the 24th, were loaded into trucks and hurried off amid a cloud of dust to our quarters. Battery " C " was composed of men from V. M. I., Ames, Harvard and Culver. The discipline of the battery, coupled with the willingness of the men to work and learn, soon made of it the most proficient organization of the camp, and V. M. I. played no small part, especially in practical work. The " keydets " held their own in athletics without difficulty. Summers won the boxing championship, and " Gob " Venable cleaned up in the wrestling end of the game. The Institute was well represented at the track and field meet, and contributed three men to the all-camp baseball team. As to drill, we managed to come out on top. What we did not know, we bluffed, and our bluff was usually good. We pulled such an impressive guard mount with " Buzz " Archer as sergeant major that the camp commander excused us from guard duty. In and about Louisville on week-end passes there was plenty of diversion of various kinds. For the more serious were numerous points of interest. Mammoth Cave and Lin- coln ' s birthplace ; for the lighter-minded, theaters, movies and dances were abundant. The V. M. I. -Culver dance at the end of camp was a great success, and a fitting close of the social activities. (See " Dizzy Sam " Harriss). The camp seemed to be the depository for all the dust of the vicinity. At most places it reached an average depth of twelve inches; and the cloud that arose behind guns and caissons looked like a smoke screen. There was zero rainfall for the period of the camp. And the heat was well over a hundred the greater part of the time. However, nobody regretted the month spent at Knox, and the consensus of opinion was that all had profited by the experience, in spite of the discouragements and troubles encountered. On July 24 everybody said a fond farewell to Major Hanford and to Captains Scott, Lewis and Hoar, and left for parts unknown. Only one thing causes us deep thought: How does Tom Douglas endure life without the major to praise him for his efforts? 206 :vV015q=ggi Mf Infantry Camp I N the morning of June 23, 1921, eighteen cadets fresh (?) from the final ball of the night before entrained at the Lexington station. For parts un- known? No. For the War Department order with which each cadet was provided said, " Cadet Blank and 1 7 others will procped direct to Platts- burg Barracks, New York. " So they did, arriving there on the evening of the twenty-fourth. The V. M. I. contingent was assigned to the Third Company, R. O. T. C. but as there were not enough cots in the Third Company barracks to accommodate all the detail, seven had to take quarters in the overflow barracks, or " Lost Battalion " as it was commonly and appropriately termed. In this barracks were the overflows from City College of New York, Penn. State, University of Pennsylvania and Western Maryland. I. D. R., as close order drill was called, had already been completed before the cadets arrived in camp. Range practice, range practice, and RANGE PRACl ICL, with a liberal sprinkling of machine gun, physical exercises, terrain problems and the like were the big numbers on the schedule from that time on. A two days ' field problem completed the last week ' s work. The camp life was not all work and no play. Lake Champlain is fine for swimming and boating, the surrounding landscape is beautiful and refreshing to the eye of the Southerner. Now, Plattsburg is hardly the place a soldier would select for an ideal vacation. But — Montreal is. And Montreal lies only seventy miles from Plattsburg. Canada is still a free country. And R. O. T. C. students were allowed free week-ends. Thereby hangs our tale. It would take pages to recount the adventures of the cadets in the exhilarating Canadian atmosphere — high Hfe at the Ritz, rides in quaint but sturdy Victorias, meals at Childs ' — these were only accessories. No accounts could be made glowing enough to do justice to the cadets ' experiences m Montreal. And there were even in Plattsburg havens for the war-worn students. When it was announced that the camp would be cut short for lack of sufficient funds there were no regrets on the part of the V. M. I. contingent. Far from that. And so on July 21 the camp disbanded and the cadets " repaired forthvvnth to their homes, " tired but happy. 2C7 }x 1 1922 i I l ' 4=-JL 4 INSPECTION ON STOOPS s%lS |L - ? ' ' v ' . " Ste.

Yea, verily it is far easier for a camel to crawl through the eye of a needle than for one who wears chevrons to enter his name amongst those of the immortals. Gaze long and earnestly at our noble throng; it is indeed a gathering of the elect. Though the guiding lights of our Alma Mater might deny it, we of the O. G. ' s Association truly know that the Institute would have failed long ago had we not been among those present. For ten long months we have each and every one been worried by anxious officers — captains and the like — who have sought our august advice about all things pertaining to the military. What we don ' t know we find out. Our motto, taken from our mascot, " Nutsie, " is, " When m doubt salute. " We do. Some people have been unkind enough to ask why some of us have never risen to the dignity of a commission, but they never stopped to think that if there weren ' t some privates the captains wouldn ' t have anybody to bone. As an indication of our running qualities, the reader will carefully notice some of the various and original angles at which our caps are worn. This is one of the distinctive features of our organization ; it might be attributed by some of the ignorant to the fact that our heads are swelled by our tremendous faith in our selves, but probably the most logical reason for the infinite variety of our headgear is made clear by the fact that when a man is trymg to make one cap last four years he is lucky to have it on his head at all during the last ten months. In spite of our inherent slipperiness we beheve that we are true representatives of V. M. I.; we, the O. G. ' s of ' 22, know that we love her truly, and we are sure that if she never has any worse alumni than we her traditions and her reputation will stand forever unblemished. 209 : Ug Q=@3@mTB The Charlottesville Trip " Reveille at 4:45 a. m. By order of Colonel Dockery. " And thus began the day. After breakfast four companies, consisting of all old cadets minus the football men, formed in glittering array and marched lo the station, where they entrained for Charlottesville. How luxurious seemed the Pullmans after the cold, bare rooms of barracks! TTie buffet car in the rear was frequented by all; and the added convenience of an obsequious porter for each car provided the finishing touch. It seemed almost no time at all until the fast special pulled into Charlottesville and the battalion " fell in " to be marched to the university. Here arms were stacked and an ample repast was served the hungry travelers by the good ladies of the city. With the " inner man " satisfied, the cadets began to while away the half hour before the parade. Some elected to take a short course in medicine, but after visiting " Stiff Hail " decided that iheir natural talents lay in other channels. Others strolled about the beautiful grounds of the university. Soon first call sounded and the companies were conducted to the starting point of the parade. From here the line of march extended for a distance of about a mile and a half along Main Street to the Court House Square, where the Jackson statue was unveiled ' midst a very impressive ceremony. The presence of a number of Confederate veterans enhanced the solemnity of the occasion. After the unveiling the cadets were free until eight o ' clock. The great majority returned lo the university, where the students made every effort to entertain them in true Southern hospitality. That they were eminently successful was very evident, for at eight the battalion assembled with the best of spirits. The return voyage was characterized by a few tempestuous outbursts, but on the whole passed rapidly and uneventfully. About midnight a light luncheon — a delightfully informal affair — was served by the Mess Hall Battery, and some two hours later the " modus transportandi " backed into Lexington. The old barracks looked strangely familiar after such an absence, and the " hnys " presented an inviting welcome which no one was slow in accepting. Tbus ended the day as it had begun — with sleep. : S MQ= MU Tlie Rickmond Trip The second trip of the 1922 Corps was that to Richmond on November 22nd to take part in the parade in honor of Marshal Foch. Because of the nearness of Thanksgiving and the annual Roanoke trip, the cadets were allowed only one day in the Capital City; but they crammed enough into that night to serve as topics for barracks yarns for weeks to come. The first event of the trip was the stop at Lynchburg — " Lunchburg, where the lunches come on. " Friends and parents nearly mobbed the train. Their boxes of food caused a second riot after the train pulled out. On the arrival at Richmond the corps marched to the Blues ' Armory through streets Imed with cheering friends and alumni. The armory was subsequently V. M. I. headquarters, although but few cadets remained there longer than was necessary. Those who could not receive, beg or borrow an invi- tation to sleep outside were forced to attend laps at midnight, but, being keydets, many ran the block afteiwards, and some got caught. All Richmond turned out to entertain the cadets. A dance was given by the V. P. I. alumni. Many private dinners, dances and theater parties were held. As a result it was " one blissful night. " Of the parade little need be said except that it was splendid to behold, but hell to march in. Marshal Foch reviewed the long line of Blues, Grays, V. M. I. and V. P. I. cadets, American Legion men, nurses, etc. Then the said long line marched at least a hundred miles, while spectators cheered and our rifles grew steadily heavier. Then nothing remained but the sad farewell and the return trip, whose monotony was broken only by a second stop at " Lunchburg. " Barring the necessary evil of the parade, the trip was a huge suc- cess; in decided contrast to the Roanoke trip, whose sad tale is now to be told. jO mmm The Roanoke Trip The Roanoke trip was the kind of journey you dream about — after you have eaten too much Welsh rarebit for supper. Lady Luck was on indefinite furlough and Old Doc Jinx was exercising full authority. The history of the day was " just one darned thing after another. ' To begin with, the Corps started off tired out after the seemingly needless trip back from Richmond the night before. Upon detraining at Roanoke a parade was held through the streets, much to the disgust of the cadets, who were " fed up " on such ceremonies after their Richmond parade two days be- fore. After the parade came the usual reunion of cadets, alumni and friends at the Hotel Roanoke. This and the dansant were about the only redeeming features of the day. Then the corps marched to the field, only to find that but half enough room had been reserved in the grand stand, with the result that many cadets were forced to stand, and the cheering section was split in two. And the jinx still pursued, for the big team went down to defeat, fighting every inch of the way, upholding the honor of V. M. L, which decrees that Institute men shall take defeat in the same spirit of fair play as they show in victory. Credit is due to V. P. L for the game they played and for the way their corps accepted the fruits of victory. But the worst was yet to come, for a bare hour and a half remained for supper before the corps was forced to say farewell to Roanoke. Paternal authority had again issued an inviolable decree that the return trip should start at 7:30 to enable the cadets to get their beauty sleep In vain did cadets, alumni and parents beg for the usual late stay so as to attend the dance m honor of the two schools. Orders were orders, so dates had to be broken and farewells cut short. So did V. M. I. entrain for home and bed, leaving the rival V. P. I. in possession of Roanoke and its fair inhabitants — keeping our dates. And so did reveille sound at the usual hour next morning, depriving the keydets of even that chance to obtain the beauty sleep for which they had given up the joys of Roanoke. It is no wonder that the heartfelt prayer of every cadet is: " .Sparc mt from another such day. " 212 s ME n 1922, The Growley Club Regular Meelings : Three limes daily. Local Meetings : Any vacant periods. Every community, no matter how democratic, has its plebeians, its bourgeoisie, and its " four hundred. " Let this four hundred be increased by some twenty-five per cent and the result is the undeniably exclusive Growley Club of the Institute. A glance at the lofty walls and massive portals of the club itself impresses one with awe-inspiring wonder at the power contained within, as unobtrusive but as mighty as the sea itself. The club is the foundation of Truth, for here rulers of every realm of knowledge meet, as did Doctor Johnson, Mr. Addison and Mr. Steele, and their contemporaries at the famous literary club many years ago. All great men must eat. Did not Doctor Johnson swallow his tea in oceans? Members of the Growley Club are infinitely greater thinkers than these; and so, thou insignificant, gaping civilian, imagine how they must eat! Com- placent, undisturbed when the human atoms outside come to watch them feed ; deft, grace- ful, sublimely oblivious ! That is the club. Never are the members foiled in an attack on a luscious plate of beans ; never abashed in venturing into the choice morsels of the Great Unknown. Small conventions and tire- some etiquette do not worry them; distance but " lends enchantment to the view " when an appetizingly garnished and garlicized dish of growley appears upon the horizon ; and members stand not in the order of obtaining it, but reach. And so, friends, this is the mandate of the club: " Eat when you can, and let none other be first. " 214 m-rmmf ;! ' I ' ' C ' L ' tg fe tfjSj Mr a EZ ' :ii|Ej6l£a »--aaoW ' ' ' .

I. and several years of coaching experience at Marion Institute, " Blandy " Clarkson was well qualified to take up the work at his alma mater in which he has been so successful. He became head coach in the fall of 1920, and was instrumental in making that year the most outstanding in the athletic history of the Institute. Although beset with difficulties and raw material this year, he has laid the foundation in football for a great team; and in basketball and baseball he has developed teams which are a pride to the Institute. " Jimmy " Leech Probably one of the best all- ' round athletes who ever wore the V. M. I. monogram, " Jimmy " came back this year to aid his alma mater on the coaching staff. He has exhibited a marked ability as a coach in football, basketball and baseball with that skill which his athletic talent would indicate. His short figure was alwa ys in the midst of everything; and he has been active in ail departments of each sport, his work ranging from scoutmg for the team to educat.ng the varsity by playing on the scrubs. " Bill " Moore Everybody who came in contact with " Bill " Moore during the football season would count him as a real coach and a true friend. A star at Princeton, a choice for all-American, and later for all-A. E. F. football teams, he was not lacking in experience and knowledge of the game. Having almost entirely new material with which to work, he succeeded in moulding a backfield which showed the goods even when handicapped by its light weight. 217 L .1 Assistant Coackes Major Read, Tiacl( It is due to the faithful efforts of " Son " Read more than to anything else that tra ck holds such a prominent place in V. M. I. athletics. With a brilliant track record behind him, he is well qualified to develop a winning aggregation on the cinder path. Major Heflin, Football " Teddy Bear " Heflin ' s work with the scrubs during the past season produced a team that not only worked the varsity hard, but showed up well in several games of its own.

Mr. Zimmerman, WresiUtjg The success of wrestling as a new sport at V. M. I. for the past two years is in no small way the result of the able and careful coaching of Mr. Zimmerman.

His noteworthy gymnastic work while a cadet stands him in good stead. 218 , M£ = M®M ' B FIRST KICKOFF ON ALUMNI FIELD Tke New Atkletic FielJ One of the greatest boons athletics at V. M. I. has had in the history of the Institute is the new athletic field and stadium completed in the fall of 1 92 1 . Situated at the foot of the parapet directly in front of barracks, it is a monument to the spirit of V. M. I. since the expense was borne by alumni and the engmeering was done by two alumni, Lieutenant-Colonel J. A. Anderson and Major J. G. Allen. The entire level field, approximately 300 by 600 feet, was laid largely through blasting a hillside of rock, and the bottom was drained and filled to the level of the lower road. On an appeal from the ccrps, the board of visitors voted to start work on this athletic field instead of begm- ning on the alumni building, as originally planned. The cost of the field is approximate I v $53,000, while the cost of the stadium is about $13,000. The seating capacity of the latter is 3,000. In the near future a field house will be built for the accommodatioi of visiting teams. The new athletic field was completed as a lasting memorial for the V. M. I. men in the World War, on ground donated by the Institute as a tribute to her sons. In the attainment of this asset the corps, the faculty and the alumni are greatly indebted to Captain Montgomery Corse, who has put his heart and soul in the management of this enterprise of so much value to his alma mater. 219 r =yS! MQ= £ ®MB mmm Football Season, 1921 The season of 192], though not so successful as that of 1920, shows constant evi- dence of the fighting spirit of a team handicapped by losses, but bucking hard against the most difficult schedule V. M. I. has ever had. In Frank Summers, the unanimous choice for All South Atlantic tackle, the team possessed a tried and trusty leader. After suffer- ing a mean attack of malaria the first of the season, Frank came back with his same old spirit. His constant example and unceasing work were an inestimable asset for the good of the team. The difficult work of managership was ably cared for by Maynard Camp- bell. Confronted with numerous trips, and with the many details of the unprecedented Virginia game, he steered the team throughout the season with remarkable success. The Varsity Squad EnJs: Drewry, Ridgely, Clark, E., Watkins, Hobson, Carlton. Tacl(les: SUMMERS, (Capt.), Hunt, R., Gray, Booth. Guards : Harrison, Wescott, Douglas, W., Hammond, Freeman. Centers: MiLLER, P., Parrott, Fercuson. Quarlerhacks: Farley, FaulkneR. HalfbacJis: Bunting, Costolo, Atwell, Ryder. Fullhacks: Shannon, Venable, W., Hunt, P. Manager: Campbell, A. M.. Jr Asshlanl Managers: PETTYJOHN, Clarkson, J. = gll Mf AR. oi tlie S« With the loss of almost half of last year ' s team to overcome, the month of September was spent in drilhng into shape a new team. This loss was felt to the greatest extent in the backfield, and the material in this department was on the whole rather too light. The first game, against Roanoke College, was a complete victory in every phase of the game, but not as overwhelming as that of the previous year; likevvise was the game with Hampden-Sidney, although slightly better form was exhibited in the latter contest. 1 he preliminary season closed with a victory over the heavy Wake Forest aggregation, in which the visitors were completely outclassed, gaining only one first down to the Cadets ' thirteen. The V. M. I. line proved to be a stone wall, as it had in the two previous games, and the backfield began to assume some coordination. The fact that there was no individual star proved that there was real team work. But the next week, in a game that was closely contested from the kickoff to the last whistle, the " Flying Squadron " met defeat at the hands of its old rivals from the Univer- sity — after fifteen consecutive victories. Virginia showed her offensive strength by power- ful off-tackle plays throughout the game, and she was able to wear out V. M. I. with her excellent substitutes. In the fourth quarter the Cadets made a superb stand in the shadow of their o vn goal, where Virginia failed to gain an inch. Later, by some beau- tiful passes, the ball was advanced almost to Virginia ' s goal line, only to be lost on an intercepted forward pass just before the end of the game. Thus ended a great contest 222 [gg5q= lllf which v. ' as wi:nessed by the largest crowd that ever came to Lexington for an athletic event — about 6,000. The old saying, " It never rains but it pours, " was exemplified in V. M. I. ' s luck from that time on. The Cadets fumbled and never had a chance to get out of their own terri- tory the first part of the Penn game, although Penn was stopped several times on the ten- yard line. Their aerial attack, however, proved too much for the Cadets and all three of their touchdowns were made directly through passes. The Cadets ' comeback in the fourth period gained only one touchdown before the whistle ended the fray. In the game against North Carolina State, in which they were admittedly outclassed, the team came back in the fourth quarter and tied the score. Against North Carolina, in Richmond, a lack of coordination was evident. 7 he backfield was unable to gain until the last of the game, and the fleet North Carolina halfback, Johnson, was hard to stop. With bad breaks at the wrong moments, the varsity was forced again to admit defeat at Louisville at the hands of Kentucky, although there were dashes of spectacular football on the part of the Cadets throughout the game. The Thanksgiving game with V. P. I., with all the odds against V. M. I., was won by Tech ' s driving backfield. Although V. M. I. excelled in forward passing, gain- ing 2 1 7 yards to Tech ' s 1 by this method, the Cadets ' lighter backfield had difficulty m driving consecutively. On the whole V. M. I. ' s line was strong, but Tech made gains off tackle and end which were hard to stop. If not up to expectations in gaining the season ' s victories, the team, nevertheless, did its best at all times and never let any opponent off without a " big fight " and a closely con- m®MB tested game. Its chief difficulty was new material, together with a tendency towards work- ing at times individually and not collectively. But at one time in each game at least the old " Flying Squadron " dash was to be seen. It is a significant fact that a touchdo vn was scored in the latter part of each of the last six games, often with victory out of sight — another tribute to the spirit of " Never Say Die.

M l ;.-i The Scrubs Too much cannot be said of this bunch of fighters who always presented a stiff opposi- tion to the varsity without receiving the latter ' s glory. With nothing but hard knocks to look foi-ward to, they gave all that they had willingly and unselfishly. In all of the six games that they played there was never a time when they did not keep busy even the best of their opponents with a fine brand of football. Even the champion Marine Corps team had no easy time in beating this scrappy aggregation which they were confident of overwhelming. Jesse Caldwell was the hard-working captain of the " junior varsity, " as the team was officially designated, and Herbert Southgate proved himself to be an earnest and efficient manager.

Both a punter and an end, he is con- sidered one of the best, most reliable football men in this section of the country. Hunt Tackk A tower of strength in the line at all times, " Bob " has never failed to deliver the goods in all departments of the game. We can count on hun as one of the mainstays for 1 922. Wescott Guard " Cue Ball " has shown himself to be one of the most consistent, aggressive guards in the South Atlantic. He could always be depended upon to " get his man " and anybody else who was in his path. 22f) M v{ggEg =d lmf Bunting Halfback With his speed, head-work, and all- ' round football ability, Jere has played a stellar, always dependable game throughout his four years on the varsity. He is one of the best halfbacks in the South Atlantic, and one of the best football men V. M. I. has produced in years. Farley Quarterback Combining accurate passing and punting with spectacular open-field run- ning, " Skeets " has done much in his first year at college. He has a prom- ising future as a football player, and we are expecting great things of him m the years to come. Shannon Fullback " Mike " has shown what a son of Ireland can do in the way of playing an all- ' round hard game in the backfield. He put his heart and soul into the game, and when he hit he hit hard. Miller Center A fighter for every ounce of his 180 pounds, " Pete " has been the infalli- ble pivot of the line throughout the season. His place will be hard to fill on the 1922 " Flying Squadron. " VenablE, W Fullback " Gob " has been the power behind the hne who always stops the onslaughts of any opponent. And in addition he is one of the hardest drivers on the team. RiDGELY End An infallible defender of the right-wing position and the most accurate receiver of passes on the team, " Rux " showed his varsity caliber at all times. Gray Tackle A linesman ever aggressive and always on the job, " Tom " has proven his ability in one year. His hght weight is his only handicap, but he has the figh t all the same. Clark End After four years of hard, consistent football, " Monk " has had his chance this year to make the coveted monogram. Aggressiveness and steady playing have characterized him as an end. Douglas, W Cuard " Red " leaves behind him the well-deserved impression that he is a great fighter and a skilled player. He was always ready to " get in and scrap. " 228 yS M£ = i§WWn 192S 1 CoSTOLO Halfback A heady speed king is " Ike. " He has been a consistent gainer all the season, and has shown them all how a backfield man should " step off. " Look out for him next year. Ki ' DER Halfback " Ed " is a valuable combination of speed and brains, and he knows how to hit a line. He has all the qualities of a real star, and will certainly be in the limehght next year. Faulkner Quarterback A born field general and fighter in football is this " Wirt. " A hard worker and a dependable back, he has two more years for old Red, White and Yellow. Attwell Halfback " Klebo " can hardly be called a giant, but he makes up for his size by his speed and by his hard tackling. During the past season he has surprised many a larger man. Watkins End By consistent work from the first of the season " Cherry " won a place on the team in his " Rat " year. In the next few years he will be the chief guardian of V. M. I.

A good majority of the games of an exceptionally hard schedule were won, and the close scores of all the defeats that the team met bear mute evidence of an unfailing fighting spirit. The Cadets started the season in brilliant fashion with decisive victories over Lynch- burg College, Emory and Henry, the Roanoke Elks and Hampden-Sidney. Then they defeated V. P. I. in one of the most interesting and well-played games ever seen on a V. M. I. floor. Victories over Elon, St. Johns and the strong University of Tennessee followed in quick succession; but on February 4 the " big team " met a jinx at the hands of Virginia, which came out on the long end of a 25-23 score after a momentous struggle. Against the University of Kentucky the Cadets showed their old form and won a well- deserved victory. Next they lost to V. P. I. in Roanoke by one point, beat North Carolina State, but bowed to the University of North Carolina, the hfst team seen on our floor during the season. Over Washington ' s birthday in a somewhat crippled condi- 1!= ■yV mm 1928 T [v( Mi =@lliMQ =CI2lc ,2, tion, the team undertook a foreign invasion, but the odds were against them, and they were defeated in succession by Virginia, Catholic University and George Washington. A victory over the strong Takola team in Richmond gave proof that the Cadets had not lost the old dash and fight. The season ended with a defeat at tlie hands of V. P. I. in the last game of the series played at Blacksburg. Captam Jere Bunting was kept out of most of the important games of the season on account of injuries. But in the games in which he played, it could be seen that his old stellar form was still in evidence. Jere is the best basketball man developed at the Institute for many years. Manager Venable proved himself well capable of arranging an excellent schedule and carrying it out in a very efficient manner. Results of the Season V. M. I. . . . 34: V. M. I. . . . 35; V. M.

His height gave him the jump on most of them. Shannon Cuard " Mike " never failed to show the old Irish fight, and always held his opponents down to a low score. He was not only a tenacious guard but an excellent shot and accurate passer. 234 Ug 5q= ®MB i92a Ryder Cuard " Ed " was in many ways the sensation of the season. Combniing speed with an almost uncanny abihty to break through opponents ' defense, he kept up a thorough-going pace throughout the season. Kyle Formard " Kitty " was always ready to go in and fight in case of any emergency. His knack of keeping up with the ball and his accuracy in passing and shooting are outstanding. He has another year of varsity service. Drewry Cuard " Barbed-Wire ' s " cotton locks could be observed in the midst of the fracas whenever he was turned loose in the game. He was always ready to break up any rally started by the opponents. 235 The Scrubs After a hard-fighting scrub or junior varsity football team had experienced a success- ful season, it was decided that there should also be a regular junior varsity basketball team with a schedule all its own. This aggregation had a highly creditable season, and was afforded a chance to gain a name for itself, and in a measure a reward for long hours of faithful service against the varsity. A victory over the V. P. I. junior varsity started the season optimistically, and a trip to A. M. A. and S. M. A. resulted most favorably for the cadets. A defeat by the Lynchburg Night School was a slight jolt, but was more than offset by a victory at the expense of the subs (sweet revenge!) and the noted Lexing- ton Y. M. C. A. quintet.

The most gratifying victories vi ere those registered over the University of Vir- ginia and Virginia Tech. On the w hole the team showed a somewhat erratic form, but at times they played a game of ball that made the keydets sit up and take notice. " Tuggy " Stuart proved to be the star of the season, and incidentally created quite a stir among the fans by an unusual number of home runs. As the Bomb goes to press the baseball season of 1 922 starts with the best prospects in many years. With a good percentage of the I 92 1 team back to form a nucleus and some highly prominent material among the new cadets. Coach Clarkson is confident of turning out a winnmg combination. Captain Bunting, the southpaw first baseman, is back on the job, and is showing up in his usual steady form. Among the other veterans who are on the h ill are Perkinson and Caldwell, infielders ; Southall, V., Ryder, Faulkner, outfielders; Hart, catcher, and Page, F., and Saunders, T., pitchers. The best new men seem to be Hatchett and Pillow, infielders; Lipscomb, outfielder; Pack and Freeman, catchers; Nugent, pitcher. Numerous other likely candidates have reported for practice, and preparations for the development of a star team are well under way. Coach Clarkson is ably assisted by Coaches Leech and Grove, both of whom have had distinguished baseball careers at the institute. He has also been lucky enough to secure the sei-vices of Al Orth, the former pitching wonder of the New York Yankees. 237 = (g gq= ®MB 192S J i i ' ( q= plllf Orth will be with us for a few weeks, and will materially help in whipping the team into shape. Manager Miller has completed an excellent schedule, which should furnish a wide variety of interesting games. We are certain that it will not take long for the big team to give a good account of itself. I — V ' v ue 1€«5 i92a 240 ' ' T i ' - ' m : U mE =@g mMBf =Qm Track Since 1918 track has been elevated to the rank of major sport; and it seems to be becoming increasingly popular each year. In the fall of 1 92 1 a new phase of track was introduced at the Institute with the development of a cross country team which showed up well in the one meet of the season, with V. P. I. This team consisted of the following men: Buch, Settle, Gwathmey, Rimmer, McCurdey, Greene, Bailey and Taylor. The meet was lost to Tech, but it exhibited the fact that there was excellent material in the corps which needed only a little more experience. The spring practice is already under way, as we go to press, wath over fifty candidates on the hill. Many of the new men, particularly Watkins, Farley and Foster, have had considerable track experience. The following men of last year ' s team are back: Sum- mers, weights; Drewry, javelin; Costolo, hurdles and dashes; Brown, D., jumps; Sims, high jump; Buch and Yarborough, quarter mile; Ramey, mile, and Settle, two-mile. These men should certainly form a nucleus for a stellar Eiggregation. Captain Summers is the most noteworthy master of the weights who has represented V. M. I. in many years, and he seems to be in the same old form this year. His powers will be an incentive to the entire squad. Turley has well held down the position of manager, and has arranged for a number of good meets this season, including one at Pittsburgh with Carnegie Tech. Work on 241 j[g3H£ = @mB " the quarter-mile track is now progressing rapidly ; and this new feature will do much for the advancement of the sport. Meets in the future can be held at the Institute with perfect ease, and the difficulties encountered in practice can be eliminated. In Major Read the team has a coach who has already proved himself invaluable. In fact it is due to his long continued efforts that track has become so popular and suc- cessful as a sport. 1922 Schedule April 13 — Johns Hopkins April 22— V.

Charlottesville ngton ngton ngton Summers 243 ' WMi ® Tennis Tennis has established itself as a most important minor sport at the Institute, and there are many candidates who turn out in the annual spring tournament. The system of selec- tion for the team is now based on the universal plan of a tennis ladder, which automatically gives every man a chance to show his worth. Practice starts in the early spring, and in spite of the limited number of courts the tennis prospects are excellent. Last year both of V. M. I. ' s arch rivals, Virginia and V. P. I., fell before these racquet wielders, and a good majority of the other matches were won. The team has : S MQ= 3®Mm I92a ,i M£ = M®MB =gmK furlough time, which enables it to make some extensive trips to carry the Institute ' s colors into foreign territory. Captain Young has been an experienced tennis player with the team for three years, so that he will do much for the promotion of the team this year. Other monogram men in this sport are Semans and Macrae, who have displayed excellent form for the past two seasons. Hobson, Moore, W., and Robertson, W., are expected also to give a good account of themselves on the courts this year. Manager O ' Brien has arranged the following attractive schedule: April I 5 — Lynchburg College Lexington April 19 — Roanoke College Roanoke April 29 — George Washington Lexington May May May May May May 3 — Hampden-Sidney Lexington 6 — Virginia Lexington I 4 — George Washington Washington 15 — Georgetown Washington I 6 — Maryland State Washington 20 V. P. I Blacksburg 248 : s MQ= §w n Wrestling The 1 922 wrestling team was selected from a large squad, and in spite of difficulties encountered, it made a very creditable showing in its three meets. Captain Venable, W., was injured m practice early in the year. Since he was the mainstay of the team his loss was keenly felt and was a handicap hard to surmount. Under the careful coaching of Mr. Zimmerman the new material was developed quickly, while the old men of last year ' s squad proved that they had not forgotten former training. The first meet was lost to Virginia, but it was significant that V. M. I. secured two falls to Virginia ' s one. The second meet was lost to the strong Navy team at Annapolis, but the Cadets " came back " with a decisive victory over Trinity. The following men showed up especially well : 1 1 5-pound class. Woodward; 125-pound class, Venable, R. ; 1 35-pound class, Baird, R. ; 145-pound class, Parrott (acting captain); 158-pound class, Carlton; 1 75 -pound class. Booth and Pendleton; unlimited class. Barbour. Venable 249 m mt nm i92a lym Although there are no regularly scheduled intercollegiate meets for the gym aspnants, the team makes an excellent showing in the exhibits, which are held during government mspection and finals. On these occasions the individual members of the team display their ability in various gymnastics, and judges record their proficiency. A cer- tain number of pomts gained in exhibits entitles the holder to a mon- ogram as a reward for the time and patience expended in mastering the different feats which must be performed. Under the coaching of Colonel Millner and of Ryland, captain, the team has taken on new life, and bids fair to become quite an asset at the end of the year, when the skill of the members on the bars, flying rings and mats will be shown. j ===;v( Mq==@3@mTB =p2ii:%7 . i gWi: Il ji " E HB n .

I. in the fall of 1921 when the Athletic Asso- ciation recognized it as a minor sport. Ever since that time great interest has been man- ifested in its progress. Only men in the two mounted units are eligible to the team, but among these units the competition has been keen. Two teams have been formed in each unit, and the varsity team, picked from the unit teams, has developed in good shape. Match games between the unit teams were held from March until finals. Princeton, Yale and Norwich desired to play V. M. I., but due to existing conditions the matches could not be scheduled. The Institute has joined the Indoor Polo Association of America, which includes Princeton, Harvard, West Point, Pennsylvania, Norwich and a great number of riding clubs. All equipment, including uniforms, saddles and ponies, has been secured this year through the efforts of Captain White, Coach and Advisor of the Polo Association Captain White is an experienced polo player and has been a member of the all-Arm and all-A. E. F. teams. He is ably assisted by Lieutenant Hogan and Lieutenant Heiberg. The fifteen polo ponies received this year are being rapidly trained and should be among the best in the country next year. At present the mounts used are the pick of the cavalry and artillery stables. Polo has made a commendable start among the sports of V. M. I., and there is every reason to believe that it will be a complete success. 253 IS :vUgM£ = B @mB| 19ZZ Monogram Club Officers F. L. Summers President Hal CosTOLO Vice-President J. L.

S. ' s. Joseph Conrad Turley: " Sons of the Prophet. " The followera of Islam, in their insidious and far-reaching cam- paign to spread the Mohammedan faith throughout this country, have a staunch supporter in the able but unscrupulous editor of that notorious scandal sheet, The Bluefield Blues. ■ While we may take e.xception to Turley ' s views, we must nevertheless concede the force and brilliance of his style, and we cannot but admire the delightfully suggestive way in which he handles the most com- promising situations. Murad, a charming and hand- some young sheik, has left his native Araby in search of a Chris- tian bride. He visits many lands without success. At length his ng him to a pictur- imlet tucked away of the Blue Kidge ere Destiny awaits ■m of Dorothy, the ssie. Her virgin pears in the Elysian Fields of philosophy, and, by dint of tire- less iteration and sublime con- tempt for the conventional shac- kles of literary form, rises head and shoulders above his co-labor- ers, giving birth to a masterpiece of New Thought. Such a man is William Einstein Wescott. " Nothing " expresses in its suc- cinct title the net results of a life- time of painstaking endeavor, of time-binding thought. Of his phi- losophy, Wtscott says: " Its very simplicity and universality of ap- plication must at once commend it to the higher type of intellect. " The following extracts selected ■ings br in the footh llli M( luntains. H hii m in the fo M( jonshine L; beauty lure: d. at is mistress of his heart — and his shekels. To him she is love and constancy incarnate; and, to prove his devotion, he becomes a convert to Christianity. What, then. Is his horror on visiting her humble cot one night to find a cigar stump on the samovar! In vain she pleads her weakness for Old Virginia Cheroots. • • • Nine months later. Murad is picked up, drugged and doped like many other hapless " Mu- rads, " by a scouting party from a reform school in the vicinity. He is taken into custody within its gray walls. Disillusioned and heartbroken, he renounces his new creed and devotes the whole of his energies to turning the miserable inmates to the faith of the Prophet. Such is his success that the entire body turn Moslem and give their brutal keepers to the sword, whilst the happy Murad expires exclaiming: " Allah be praised amongst my glorious associates in barracks! " William Einstein Wescott: " Noth- fro glo will serve to illustrate his unusual and strikiug style. ' Ihe first de- scribes the original and post- natal impressions produced upon a new-born tenement child when it has been carried to the window for a glimpse at its environment. The second is a supreme expres- sion of faith in the Infinite Chaos. " Roofs. Tin, brick, sheet-iron, shingle. More roofs, A puff of greasy smoke. A world of roofs. Slum cats howling in the filthy moonlight. Roofs, roofs, roofs. " And then: " Above the cosmic consciousness — See! See! The light! — Ah, yes — telepathic com- munication — God! My God! — And still — INFINITUDE — Beyond the his experiences as a super In " The Chocolate Soldier. " and his meteoric career as manager for the famous Metropolitan soprano, Madame Delilah Bonanza. Equal- ly at home in Washington Square, Mott Street, The Tenderloin, or Fifth Avenue, he left a trail of broken hearts and ruined lives wherever he strayed. His readers will readily appre- ciate the merit of Stripling ' s comment on his novel work, which was as follows: " Were I to rewrite my oft-quoted lino, ' And he learned about woman from her, ' in memory of Ruxton Masterly Ridgely ' s career, it would read, ' And they learned about Men from him. ' " Other recent works of merit by local authors, which space does not permit us to discuss at length, are: Coningsbv Dawson Follett ' s " A Self-Made Man, " " W. Gotten Skillman ' s " Laugh and Grow Thin, " Joshua Groce ' s " Elements of Jazz, " Raymond Hitchcock Macauley ' s " By-Paths of East Lexing ' ton, " and the Venable Brothers ' " Wrestling With Con- Allr Et rty! Wescott is an archetype of the Ingrowing Ego, an apostate Sun Worshiper, a lesser deity with a greater mission. Although he frankly admits his inability to comprehend much of what he has written when under the Urge, his message is for the world, and the world wiU not be long in grasping its full significance. Ruxton Masterly Ridgely: " Wom- en Who Have Loved Me. " The amours of Don Juan and the more recent affairs of the Pa- risian Bluebeard. Henri Landru, pale into significance beside the amorous adventures of this twen- tieth century Knight of the Rolled-Sock Garter, The book, party in diary, partly in letter form, contains a wealth of thrill- ing anecdote told in the rare and exotic style that his numberless female admirers have come to know and love so well. Here is a man who. scornful of all sham, affectation, and false modesty, has dared to give a life- time ' s reminiscences in bold and startling fashion to the waiting world. Of particular interest are the accounts of his unconventional but deliciously intriguing life in Greenwich Village, his adventures in the opium dives of Chinatown, LOST AND FOUND Found— One white tooth in the Growley last Tuesday.

The tact is that, lured by the balmy breezes in the freezes, and the zestful zephyrs of the merry month of May, he was en- tranced into taking his bi-annual bath. The Shock nearly killed CO-EDUCAXIOX AT V. M. I. Now that our sister institution, V. P. I., has seen the light and adapted the great principle of co-education, it is time that Greater V. M. I. should follow her example. Just as the Garden ot Eden was incomplete without its Eve, so is Eden-on-the-Nile emp- ty without its keydette. Think of the advantages o( the innovation. No need to import calic for the hops: for only the keenest, .lazziest, most deficious dancers would be accepted as • Lady Rats. (Without this beauty test, co-educati on would fail). No time would be taken from studies to write " dog barks " : for SHE would room just across the court- yard in Female Barracks. Every keydet would " run " all the time to appear well in the eyes of his particular peach — especially if she happened to be a beauteous lady tactical officer. The new plan would change the present brutal, materialistic, mili- tary atmosphere of the place. Reveille would cease, for no key- dette with a spark of gumption would attend the horrid forma- tion; the mess hall would im- prove, or the mess sergeant would find himself skewered with hat- pins: " boning " would stop, to pre- vent the use of those sister weap- ons of defense, hysterics and " a good cry " ; and, finally, barracks would be made more homelike — cretonne window curtains, full- length mirrors, lip-sticks, hair dressers (shades of Mr. White!), etc. — in order to attract the fair And so " The Keydet " wishes to call the attention ot the Board of Visitors to this plan, with the hope that it will be acted upon at the next meeting. This paper is willing to meet them halfway by changing the spelling of its name to the feminine gender. With co-education, V. M. I. will become the greatest military col- lege of all time: for she will teach her sons and daughters how to fight with the weapons of both sexes — and the female of the spe- cies is more deadly than the male.

The con- testants were no less than " Ener- gy " Pennvbacker, the Battling Bimbo from 47. and " Owl Puss " Rainey, the Expressionless Won- der from G-2. " Energ-y " had climbed into the finals by sheer strength of pur- pose combined with a wonderful knowledge of the tactics of the game. He had defeated all those who had been rash enough to pit themselves against him. Among the master minds who had fallen before his might were " Bliss " AVhite, who had been trained by no less a master of the game than " Uncle J. I. ' ; " El Montilla, " the mighty Monk; and last, but far fromi least, " Cockeye " Martin, the champ of 51. The " Wonder " was himself fresh from a string of victories over " Rosie " Ramey, the Strasburg champion; " Happy " Hank, the ferocious fighter from H ' burg; and " Little Ooten, " hold- er of the title in the heavyweight class. That these two had been brought together in conflict was the triumph of Barracks sporting men. Both had a rabid backing of fans, and vast sums were wa- gered on the outcome. " Energj ' " opened the game with masterful strategy, but was opposed by an unbreakable defense on the part of the " Wonder. " The game pro- gressed slowly, although the ref- eree. " Killdee " Marshall, was kept busy at all times keeping the contestants from becoming too rough. At last, by a masterful move, the " Wonder " reduced his opponent ' s fighting forces to three kings, while he had five on his side. It looked as if " Energy " was about to take the count, but by sticking to his never-say-die tactics he evened up the score. The next hour was consumed by rapid moves and counter moves on both sides. The audience was on its ear with excitement when " Energy " burst forth with his characteristic audacity and moved for the center oE the board. The " Wonder " feared a trap and hung back. The champ of 47. keeping the offensive, forced " Owl Puss " to jump. Then, taking a long lead, he captured the remaining two of the " Puss ' " forces. The applause of the multitude burst forth as the new champion finished the game. Penny, with a gracious smile, tried to console the heartbroken " Owl, " who was weeping tears of sorrow. It is rumored that " Energy " has signed a contract with the movies to play on exhibition. Moral: If you are not a success in the military world, you may be an Aurora Borealis in the checker kingdom. TIE GAME IN SAM BROWN LEAGUE stellar Football on Both Sides. On the last Saturday of the season two teams met on the new athletic field in one of the most unique games of the season and the most interesting one ever wit- nessed In the historic old metrop- olis of Lexington. In the first half " Nick ' s Flying Colonels " outplayed and outgen- eraled " Abie ' s Rambling Majors. " but in the second half the tide turned, and the " Majors " broke the " Colonels ' " wings in a steady scramble down the field to a tie score of 20 to 20. The game was a battle at all times, mainly a combination of old men with young ideas in a consternating mix-up. Only one instance of foul play occurred. During the first few minutes of play, " Judge. " playing end, in a fit of absent-minded- ness, returned the salute of a ca- det and thereby slugged three op- 323 ponents. For this he was put out of the game and the Ma.iors were penalized ten yards. However, their snappy little quarterback, " " Wink, " soon retrieved the lost ground on a trick play and romped down the field through " Olie ' s " legs for a gain of forty yards. From here the Ma.iors were unable to advance, and the ball went to the Colonels on downs. For the remainder of the first half " Nick ' s " team ruled the grid- iron. Twice " P-Foot " carried the pigskin across the goal line, and once " Nick " himself tore through center for the needed ten yards and a touchdown. Goal was kicked each time, and the first half ended: Colonels 21, Majors 0. In the second half the Colonels seemed to have lost their " spir- its, " but not their fight. They lost ground constantly, but dis- puted every inch. " Monk " kicked off to " Evil Eye, " who returned for a vard and a half. " Judge " seemed to have helped the Majors by figur- ing out the second half on the slide rule, and this preparation told against the opposing team. " Doggy " and " ' Wink " launched their dreaded ground-surface at- tack, and resembled nothing more than drops of mercury. ■« ' hen stepped on, they bobbed up in unexpected places. In the most exciting moment " Teddy Bear " picked up " Doggy " and threw him over the entire Colonels ' team, and the oval was carried across for the Majors ' first score. It was in the next play that " Rat " was injured by a fall and had to quit. He slipped up on " Shady ' s " climax. " Trinky " proved the dark horse. He final- ly perceived what all the excite- ment was about and made two touchdowns for tlie Majors. Again all three goals were kicked, and the contest ended 21 to 21. ■Unique playing -was shown by both teams. The most promising candidates for the " All-Lexing- ton " are " Nick " and " P-Foot. " for the Colonels, and " Evil Eye " and " Abie, " for the Majors. LINE-UP THE KEYDET FEEDEM CHEAP CO. Seeond-Hand Grocers Burned Building Ate On, Ohio ngto Va. Dear Sir: Due to the late iloods and fires in this section of the country, we are at present holding a fire and damaged food sale. We are able to offer the following foodstuffs to you at murderous prices: 2,000 lbs. assorted fish @ $0.01 per lb. 30.000 lbs. sliced peaches -04 per lb. 20 carloads dried apricots, prunes, and figs, mixed (in cans) @ .021 2 per doz. 76S deceased beef steers @ .12 per cwt. 800 cases slightly damaged salmon @ .42 per doz. The low price of the assorted fish is due to the fact that they were left stranded by the water of the last flood. Since they cost us nothing and were even dried by the sun. we can far undersell our competitors. The canned fruit we are unable to guarantee, because it was ob- tained from fire salvage and all the labels were burned from the were opened, and, judging from their contents. we can safely promise that th« remaining cans contain the fruits advertised. In regard to the beef steers, they are of fairly good quality, but were auctioned to us very cheaply because they failed to pass the physical examination for the packing house, and we took advantage of their bad health. The salmon was not passed by the inspector of pure foods, and we received them gratis. We shall greatly appreciate any orders from you. Very sincerely yours.

When an old cadet becomes bored, he calls up a rat ' s room for ex- citement, to i njoy a concert for a minute before returning to his study with rf-newed vigor. " Tom Du " has been appointed central operator, with liis switch- board in the sentry box. Visitin is almost impossible. When an incautious one visits 47, the senti- nel phones the orderly, then puts in a long-distance call for - ' . ally- port No. 1, " and informs the cor- poral that the latest victim is caught. But if the visitor is " slick. " he puts in a call himself, and the sentinel is informed b - central that the line is busy. Even the new system is not per- fect. News spreads like wildfire. At the first buzz every receiver clicks and six hundred ears listen in. The commandant receives many interesting messages. Needless to say. not all are official and the calls cannot be traced. Often our P. M. S. T. is interrupted in his irksome tasks by: " Oh, Cen- tral, give me the Commandant ' s office. Hello, is the Com. in ? Oh ! is that you. Colonel ? Just wanted to tell you I am vis- iting, old dear. Catch me, if you can! G ' bye. " In spite of its occasional abuse, the new private branch exchange is a great improvement. After a week of it, we wonder how we got along in the dark days when it was necessary to yell across barracks to communicate with another cadet. " The Keydet " wishes to thank the efficient au- thorities for our new plaything. TELEPHONE SYSTEM ESTABLISHED AT V. M. L T-.ong-Felt Need at Last Realized.

' John is the oldest and most disreputable member of the Class of ' 22, but we love him like a brother. He was bom about the time Adam began raising Cain in the Garden of Eden. He has been responsible for most of the trouble — and the fun and excitement — ever smce. His career at V. M. I. has been just what would be expected from one of his age and reputation. As a Rat he was curbed by vigilance committee regulations, except on Christmas day, when he just missed getting most of his brother rats mto trouble. He made up in his Third-Class year for his meekness as a Rat. As a result, he put his classmates " m bad " for most of the year via the pledge route. As an upperclassman he steadied down (although we suspect thai most of his " steadiness " was merely " drunkards ' luck " in dodging subs). Then one fall day in his First-Class year he got careless. As a result he was dishonorably discharged by order of " Old Nick. " Ever since then he has been forced to live outside the county limits. John never was much of a ladies ' man — the six-hour rule saw to that. It is to be feared, however, that he will make up as an alumnus for his shy ways as a keydel. So we say farewell to you, John. Even if you have gone, your spirit still remains. We are afraid you are going to have a hard life of it dodging Mr. Volstead. However we wish you luck, and all of us hope to see you again in Cuba.
