It is the pictorial review of the highlights of our stay at V. M. I. Possibly no four years in history have wrought such a change in the complex of world affairs. We came into the Institute in a time of peace, and we must go out from it to face the wildest storm that the world has known. This book features the military tradition of the Virginia Mil- itary Institute. The history of the Institute has been closely inter- woven with that of the defense of our country. Pictured here are the various branches of the service that take V. M. I. men after graduation. With each unit, the staff has tried to select the " pace setters " from V. M. I. These are the men who will be the inspiration for the Class of 1941. Editor C: c a Business Manaser ; x;. = c D GEIIGML fBflllCIS We dedicate our BoMB to Biigadiei-General Francis Mal- lory, an officer who has served under e " ery Superintendent m the history of the Virginia Mihtary Institute. ith his retire- ment, the Institute loses a man and gains a tradition as fine as only the man himself could make it. The men of the Corps in the years to come will not know him, and they will be the losers for it, but V. M. I. men of fifty classes will never forget him. biNCE 1839, the men of V. M. I. have held a preeminent position in the mihtary his- tory of the United States. All these men could not be pictured in this book. Our selections are not all graduates of the Institute, but they all have been associated with the school so intimately that they may be called " V. M. I. Men.

Colonel Dixon, Colonel Bales, Colonel Fuller, Lieutenant Colonel Read, Lieutenant Colonel To Lieutenant Morrison, Captain Lipscomb, Lieutenant Goolrick, Mr. Barnes, Mr. Ballard 28 The Department of Chemistry - The Chemistry Department is ably carrying out the high standards set by Col. Pen- dleton, and has achieved a high in industrial as well as academic circles. This year Col. German assumed the post as the department head and under him there has already been attained a new high in aggressiveness and efficiency. Closely associated with this group is the Geology Department in which all men of the other courses are privileged to be instruct- ed by Col. Steidtmann. Colonel Sleidtmann, Lieutenant Colonel Young, Lieutenant Colonel Carroll. Lieutenant Colonel German. Major Ritchif Captain Kelly, Captain Clark. Mr. Thomas 29 Department of Civil Engineering x The Civil boys are recruited from those cadets with a practical turn of mind, nor do they spend all their time memorizing literature inscribed on sacks of Portland Cement. Rail- roads, Thermodynamics, Steel, Surveying — all these are studied by Civil Engineers. General Anderson, Colonel Marr. Colonel Boykin, Major Mann, Major Hanes, Major Lowry, Caplaln Cabell 30 The Department of Electrical Engineering The Electrical Department is generally conceded to be the toughest one in school. When a man receives his degree in Electrical, he is well prepared to meet anything that might come up in later life. Many is the time that Electrical men have been heard com- plaining of the morning ' s zip. The Department of Foreign Languages ;?- Colonel Moseley At V. M. I. all men are required to take a foreign language for the first two years. After this, the Foreign Language Department deals with Liberal Artists and Pre-Meds only.

Mr. Lancaster 32 Colonel Mayo The Department of Mathematics - Trig, analytics, calculus . . . let ' s not go further.

Colonel Heflin. Major Weaver. Caplain Foster, Lieutenant Newman =- w CLASSES The artillery of the United States Army is divided into two corps : Field Artillery and Coast Artillery. The Field Artillery consists of the lighter field pieces and is the supporting arm of the infantry and cavalry advances. The Coast Artillery, on the other hand, con- sists of the larger coast defense and railway guns, and its principal mission is to protect the shore-line of the United States. Anti-aircraft defense, however, has become one of the most important duties of the CAC since the advent of war from the skies. J ' lioto coiirtcsn of r. S. .Iraiw Si(7»a?

" ABRAHAM ADLER Petersburg, Virginia Chem slr i !nfantr f Private (4, 3, 2, 1); Assistant Manager Basketball (2); VAS (2); Aca- demic Stars (4, 3, 2, 1) Abe has been one of the more serious ones in our midst.

Electrical Engine Cavalry Corporal (3); Sergeant (2); Private (1); AIEE (3, 2, I ) ; Ambassador Club (4. 3, 2, I) " Tootie " takes his military seriously, and because it is serious Lusiness these days, he will likely go far in it. Working in the practical with the theoretical, he has developed himself into a crack shot on the rifle range. He is officer material. " Tootie " Ij iJtaiyvvicb . . EDWARD AUSTIN AURAND. JR. Cresson.

Corporal (3); Sergeant (2); Lieutenant (I); Gym Team (3, 2, 1); Wrest- ling (2, I); Track (4); ASCE (3, 2, 1 ) ; Richmond Club (4, 3, 2, 1) The gym team and varsity wrestling have taken Mac ' s interest in the afternoons, and he has become very capable in both lines. Military and Civil Engineering have found in him the same in- terest and capability. Beyond his serious side, he is a very easy person to get along with.

He has the ability to turn quickly from his lightness when it is necessary. This ability has shown itself in the success he has at- tained in Civil Engmeermg. JACK LYNN BALTHIS Roanoke, Virginia Cavalry Assistant Manager Football (2) ; Manager Varsity Member Monogram Club; ASCE (3, 2, 1 ) ; Roa- noke Club (4. 3. 2. 1) Jack has traveled the long and hard way from the very start. He is one of the most animated members of the class when the time comes to shoot the bull. Managmg the varsity football team has been his leading extra-curricula activity, and he was the best manager that the team has had in many a year. - CARTER WILSON BEAMER HiLLsviLLE, Virginia Civil Engineering InfantrV Private (4. 3, 2, 1); Varsity Wrestling (3, 2. I); Southern Conference 155 lb. Champion 1941; Monogram Club; ASCE (3, 2, I) " Buck Beamo " has a wrestler ' s guts, which means that when he fights, he strains and fights with every bone and muscle in his body and with all his heart. Otherwise, he is gentle as a strong man can afford to be, gentle and friendly as a man with the heart of a fighter is friendly. " Jack Uika iA uicb . " THOMAS GORDON BENNETT. JR. LusBY, Maryland Electrical Engineering Cavalry Private (4, 2, 1 ) ; Corporal (3); Yankee Club (4, 3, 2, I); Business Staff Cadet; Circulation and Subscription Manager Turn-Out (1); AIEE (3, 2, 1) Without fanfare, Ben has gone through four years in the Electrical Engineering Department and made the grade. That means study of the sort that men of the other departments only have occasional uneasy dreams about. In spite of that, Ben took time to be a Cadet business man and to manage the Circulation and Subscription department of the Turn-Oul. GEORGE PASCHAL BLACKBURN, JR. Tyler, Texas Liberal Arts Infantry Private; Cadet Sports Staff (2, 1); Lectern Club (2. 1); Texas Club George came to us in our third year at the Institute, but he has been a good fit into our class. He undoubtedly would have been an officer had he been at VMI for four years. He has had no trouble fitting into the academic picture, and he has been an LA leader in his two years. ALBERT ALFRED BLACKMON Electrical Engineering EuFALA, Alabama Cavalry Corporal (3); Supply Sergeant (2); First Lieutenant (1); Second Class Show (2); Football (2); Hop Committee (I) " Blackie " has the friendliness and the self-assurance that make for personality. The friendliness is genuine and hearty, and the self-assurance well-founded on ability. They have assured his success in the military, business, social, dramatic, and athletic life of the Institute. They promise success for the future. IT 7x Q e.U(mS FLETCHER CLEMENT BOOKER, JR.

For his saxophone, for his impossible pronunciation of the German idiom, for his im- probable and bow wow style of short story writing, and for his outrageous humor section, we have loved him. EDMOND BRAXTON BRADFORD Hagerstown, Maryland Electrical Engineering Field ArlillerU Private (4, 3. 2, 1); Glee Club (4, 3, 2); Maryland Club; AIEE (3, 2, 1); Stage Manager Second Class Show (2) " Brick " is. said to have more real friends in barracks than any other one man. His willingness to do his part, his fairness, and his even cheerfulness have brought him this coveted position. He selected the hardest of courses, and his application to the task has brought him through creditably. PHILLIP ALLEN BRAUER Powhatan, Virginia Chemistry Field Arliller Corporal (3); Sergeant (2); Private (1); VAS (2); Track (4); Gym Team (2, 1) Allen has forged through his four years, saying little yet doing much. To keep himself in shape, he has become adept at gym- nastics and the parallel bars. Very unusual has been his four year devotion to his ring figure date. Ij i Q iA vicb . « LAWRENCE BREVARD CANN.

Dapper Daas. mi . i »■ Second Class History Darkness was faintly dissolving in the east; a pale mist arose; the sky was overcast and forbid- ding. Now we observed the approach of a new day with all its potentialities. Would the stormy clouds split and rumble away leaving the day alive and sunny, or would the thunder increase to a veritable crescendo of raging fury driving all before it? Or perhaps only a passing squall would render a temporary inconvenience. It was thus that the doubtful outcome of present world events appeared to us during our second class year, a year of watchful waiting and won- dering, not knowing what was in store. For per- haps ihe first time we saw the military system in its true light — its purpose to train us as soldiers and officers, not primarily to build our characters by its discipline. Our studies in military science took on new seriousness ; we began to realize the probability of our having a share in shaping world events in the not-too-distant future. Nevertheless, as war clouds loomed larger and larger; as the roll of distant drums became more and more dis- tinct, we pursued the usual routine with little change. Our second class year brought new experiences, of course, brought new responsibilities, took away a few restrictions, and bound us together more closely. Our Finance Committee took over the management of barracks amusements and business. For the first time the second class was granted " Second Class Privilege " — one Saturday night a month until ten o ' clock — which was a bit of a diversion and led us more than ever to look for- ward to the First Class Privileges of next year. Our big shindig, anxiously awaited by some, dread- ed by others, — Ring Figure — approached, became a glorious reality, and receded to join other pleasant memories of the past. It was surely the best Ring Figure ever; at least the best one in which we had been. Outside of these special advantages of being Second Classmen, our barracks life was much the same as that of the average cadet of any class for the past hundred and one years; the Civil boys built bridges on paper that would have washed away, the Chemists burnt holes in their clothes with acid, the Electricians complained of many uncom- fortable shocks. Liberal Artists, as usual, sought the nearest hay, while the Pre-meds struggled far into the night on the remains of cats and dog-fish. Spring managed to follow the Winter as it has for many years; Easter Hops brought the double thrill of hearing Tommy Dorsey ' s orchestra and putting on our own class show " On the Air. " These were followed shortly by the annual Back to Nature Pilgrimage, or Blister Party, better known as the Spring Hike, which left us with weary limbs and unmentionable thoughts. This year there was a very noticeable lack of inner warmth on the part of the brothers during these adventurous days and nights. This was due, no doubt, to the fact that we were undergoing our first taste of the pledge system which we had been lucky enough to avoid before. It added another subject to the long list of topics to be cussed and discussed in the never ending barracks bull session. Again this year we didn ' t quite succeed in get- ting that Spring Vacation which has been rumored for the past century. However, we did get a pre- view of and begin preparations for our First Class activities with the inauguration of our own Hop Committee at the May First Class Hop. This gave us a measure of insight into the importance of the responsibilities that will be ours, along with the long-awaited privileges. Three years had shown us the importance of the policies and initiative of the First Class in running the Institute and keeping up its standards. Of course this observation left in us a determination to leave our mark on the credit side of the ledger. Ours, we felt sure, would be a most successful First Class year, but as the active days of Finals drew to a close, we forgot these high ideals for the moment and concentrated on the pleasures and pastimes of the next six weeks in camp.

' irginia History of the Class of 1943 The common bond of some undefinable spirit, born in us through the hardships and pleasures ex- perienced together during our confused rat year, created a feeling of pleasurable anticipation in each one of us as we mounted the plane, bus, train, or car early m September to wend our way back to the " hill " as, praise God, lordly third class- men. Returning this year meant a little more to each one of us, not only the third class but every cadet in the corps. The existing situation m world events makes the military training we are subjected to more v itally necessary as a part of our educa- tion. Military theory and practices are now on a par with our classroom work and studies. The regulations bred in us our first year were not forgotten over the summer months and routme was once more easily adopted. The first classes, drills, and parades gathered the loose ends together and shoved us down the first straight stretch to- wards Christmas vacation. We, as each class that preceded us, were the disruptive element of the usual peace that prevails m barracks. We of- fer no apologies, however, for our part in the various " shirt-tail parades " and treatment of the rats, for such indiscretions are not only the tradition on the part of the third class, but our inherent right. We, ironically enough, looked upon those phases of V.M.I, life that only a year before we hated with such fervor with a new meaning and did our ut- most to see that every written and unwritten rat rule was enforced. Now that it is all over, the 4th Class may agree with us that the good done far exceeded the evil. The repeated events of the fall experienced as old cadets made them more enjoyable; and with a great deal of pride we look back upon the achieve- ments of our brothers on the field of athletics. A record such as they made for themselves, the class, and the corps would be most difficult to surpass. The hops of Openings and Thanksgiving combined with the corps trips and home athletic events to bring intermittent periods of enjoyment to our bar- racks life and speed away the time to Christmas furlough. Returning to barracks from furlough with Christmas a mere pleasant memory, we entered the hardest period of the cadet year. We had a great deal to look forward to during those five and one- half months — yet it was not the amusement of the fall that our energy was concentrated on, but dif- ficult examinations, studies, and military work. The third class year is said to be the most difficult aca- demically, and we all believe it. To those of our brother rats who found " the hill of science " too steep to surmount we heartily wish them success and happiness with the work in which they are now engaged. Mid-year exams, Mid-Winter Hops, basketball, wrestling, and hunting had all come and gone with time that was fast flying. The early spring of Virginia ushered in the starchy cleanli- ness of white ducks and a few bad cases of sun- burn, baseball games and track meets, and First Class and Easter Hops. We then worried through final exams, with not many casualties, to com- pletely relax our minds and exhaust our bodies during an unforgetable Finals. With a great deal of pride we look back on the achievements of the Class of 1943 during the past year. Behind us are those associations and trials that molded us into a class of men guided and bound together by an unbreakable bond of brotherhood and friendship. During the year the class organization was completed with those cadets as leaders who most deserve the positions they now hold. Cadets outstanding in military work were made corporals and those imbued with sound busi- ness ability were appointed to the Finance Com- mittee. The work we have done this year has developed in each one of us a sense of responsibility that lies ahead of us. Our remaining two years here at V.M.I, will complete our training and enable us to accept that responsibility — so with anticipation and determination we look ahead. nmu History of the Class of 1944 " And the green leaves on those trees will turn brown and will fall and will be buried beneath a blanket of snow. And much later new leaves of a lighter green will appear — and Misto, you will still be a rat! " Now, as we gaze out of our window we see that the leaves are of a lighter green, that flowers offer their fragance, and that the air is warm. What then, has happened since an old cadet droned this dire prophecy at us last fall? " Hey Misto, run up those steps! " " Hold that looking around! " " Finn out! " and similar cries heralded the arrival of our class on September 9. We are told that during our first two weeks here we drilled, drew equipment, started classes, and gradually got into the swing of V.M.I, life. How- ever, most of us remem ber nothing more than walking into Washington arch and awaking some two weeks later. With this awakening we found that each day we were accomplishing an impossible amount of work, and each night we learned anew the intrin- sic value of a " hay. " We learned to rush from " lab dike " to " field dike " and then to " full dress " — all in a matter of seconds. Football games gave us a glimpse of the outward display of the Spirit of the Corps. Who could forget our first torchlight parade? Wet, chilled, a little uncertain as to what to do, we yelled and sang, the glow of the torches transforming our in- geniously arrayed " brother rats " into creatures of another world. Then someone started the " Spirit " and we sang until our throats ached and our voices failed. How does it feel to be an old cadet? We found that out when the Corps went to Charlotte, and then again when we won the V.P.I, game and were out of the " rat line " for three days! Typical barracks life filled in the short time from Ring Figure to Christmas. The ringing cries of " Step off, you rats! " at exactly I I :00 p. m. introduced a scene of hilarious confusion as another " shirt-tail " parade got underway; we crowed like roosters and made sounds representing grass grow- ing — all to please our friends, the upper classmen. On the first note of the bugle on December 2 I we made a mad rush for the arches to begin the longest furlough any V.M.I, class has ever en- joyed. And did we enjoy those fourteen days! Every minute must and did count. Returning from this furlough we saw 1 5 7 days of almost uninterrupted work stretching before us. However, exams were approaching and all despon- dent t houghts were obliterated as we entered one of the busiest times of our lives. Exams over with relatively few casualties, bas- ketball, wrestling, and swimming refreshed our study-cramped minds. Mid- Winter dances brought to us visions of feminine loveliness which were not soon forgotten. It was not until the arrival of Tom- my Dorsey and Easters that these dances were surpassed. Spring hike, garrison reviews, baseball games, and track meets sped by, for now we were in the " home stretch. " Then came the grandest moment of all — leaning against the rail of the fourth stoop watching our " brother rats " struggle towards the goal which we had just reached. It was the first day of Finals and we were becoming old cadets. And now, strengthened and drawn closer to- gether by the hardships which we have endured and the pleasures that we have enjoyed, we wish the best of luck to our " dikes " and other friends of the first class, and optimistically view our remain- ing years at V.M.I., sure that the " brother rat " spirit which has been created this year will carry our class ever forward. -jfj ai m.

Atlantic, and Indian Oceans, he gave tn all seamen information whose value is inestimahle. Maur.v was I ' rofessor of Jleteorol- ogv at V. M. I. from 1868 until his death four years later. By his vast knowledge of the seas and his contribution to the science of navigation, he earned the title. " The Pathfinder of the Seas. " Commodore explained the secret of his success when he said, " It ' s the talent of industry that makes a man. " Richard EVELYN BYRIi was a member of the Class of lliiis of V. M. I. He left the Institute to go to the N ' aval Academy, and from there he began his career of adventure. Byrd rose to be a Lieutenant Commander upon his retirement in llilli. A flight to the North Pole in l!)2fj brought him the grade of commander. Listed among his wanderings are numerous trans- oceanic flights and many trips to both the poles. His most important achievement has been the founding of a colony at the South Pole where he has made valuable geological and metero- logical studies. He has lieen the recipient of honorary degrees from eighteen different colleges, has been awarded special congressional medals, twenty-two citations from the Navy Depart- ment and numerous honors from foreign countries. M e ACTIVITIES ; The Navy today is more important to the defense of the nation than ever before. The task of patrolHng the waters of the Atlantic and the Pacific is an enormous one. Our Navy is destined to play an important role before the war is over. Pictured here is a battleship of the United States Navy. The battleship is the most power- ful naval unit. i . ' .

Thornton 1.54 The outlook for the 1941 Hop Committee was very dim when that organization took over its duties at the beginning of the year. Last year ' s committee had left a heavy debt that must be paid off before the committee could plan big things for the future. Under the capable management of Bob Jacobs, the ' 41 committee set itself to its task with a firm resolve. By Easters, the debt was gone, the best band in the land had been engaged for the hops, and everybody was happy once again. Tommy Dorsey topped the hop year off with the gayest set of hops that the Institute has seen in many a year. The entire committee deserves sincere congratulations for the hard and unselfish work it has done to put V. M. I. dances back on their feet. 1941 BIB Officers of the Guard The Association of the Officers of the Guard was composed of all first class privates this year. When " the boys " met last fall, they chose the likeable Joe Parrish to be their leader. Joe has proved himself to be entirely capable of the responsibility, for he has served well on the Honor Court and the General Committee as well as the leader of the privates. Here is a toast to the boys who never cared to shine their shoes or be in company before the last note of assembly.

The Commanders have featured renditions of the best numbers in a style copied after the big " name " bands, and they have done a grand job of it. The popularity of this year ' s orchestra was evidenced by the numerous invitations to play at all points within this vicinity. It can be said without fear of contradiction that this year ' s orchestra was the best that the school has ever been represented by. 1 HE Commanders lo8 1 The Second Class Show Easter Hops were enlivened this year by the most different and what many termed the best Second Class Show that V. M. I. has ever known. Jackson Memorial Hall was completely filled for the performance. Jack Randolph directed the show which was modeled after a radio station ' s activities. The leading performers were Clark Goolsby and Billy Clark, who gave a black-faced skit; Rollo Patton, Eddie Young, and Miss Wini Jansen of the Southern Seminary who presented a short play called " The Valiant " ; and Gene Fonvielle and Peter Wray in solo numbers. The entire troop deserves high praise for presenting a show that was eminently popular with the corps and with the Easters ' dates. rr HE 1941 im The ' 41 Bomb r GOOLRICK Editor-in-Chief Galloway Business Manager % ' P - Read Maling Assistant Editor Advertising Manager Swift Asiociale Editor and Sports Editor Replogle Outrage Assistant Editorial Staff France Photographic Editor Kaiser Photographer MacRae Associate Editor Rose Pholographe Groome Associate Editor Balthis Associate Editor HOBNE Outrage Editor Clark Historian FORESMAN Collector Jeffrey Collector Seaton Collector Mecredy Collector Spencer Collector LoUTHAN Collector Strudwick Collector Ellender Collector HoRTO.N Collector EsSER 1942 Editor flTi 1 1 1 fT — ' ' gy girfi.--.- aJE rr BE 1941 The ' 41 aH- i.inj.(Ca! et Cadet ( " .oiiiinill ' ' Naim kiii : TO ' v ionics Urn- N..v( II .r . i.r , Clatv -Ml li«iii.

I ATHLETICS Two service branches of vital importance are the Marine Corps and the Air Corps. The Marine Corps is the land fighting unit of the Navy. The first men to see action, the Marines are famed for their valor and deter- mination. The present war has shown that a nation must have a strong air force in order to hold its own among the nations of the world. Our air force is expanding with unprecedented rapidity.

M. I. football back on its feet by giving us squadrons that fight every inch of the way. Coach Hubert has been ably assisted by Carney Laslie, line coach, Jimmy Walker, end coach, and Russ Cohen, backfield coach and scout. Rat football is under the capable direction of Colonel Sterling Heflin and Woodrow Gray, member of the 1939 Fighting Squadron.

Bclween The Halves Replogle Breal(s Away Nelson Tackle Shelby Back t| Walker Guard N The 1940 Fighting Squadron finished the season with the fine record of seven wins, two losses, and one tie. Although not the state champions this team will go down in history as one of . M. I. s greatest. Coach Pooley Hubert has good reason to be proud of his boys. Starting off the season with a decisive victoiy over Roanoke, the Keydets lost to a powerful Duke eleven and a fighting Richmond aggregation. The William and Mary game ended with a scoreless tie. This notable season came to a glorious end when the boys ran roughshod over V. P. I. to the tune of 14-0. With such an enviable record this year ' s team will long be remembered. V. M. I., 33; ROANOKE, The football season was opened when the Fighting Squadron by means of pure pcwer plays and a few passes overran Roanoke Col- lege ' s courageous team. It was V ' ' . M. I. ' s day all the way. but the maroon drew the crowd ' s applause for a fine scrap. The outstanding player was Nelson Catlett ho gained one hundred fifty-seven yards from the line of scrimmage in the sixty minutes of play. Bosh Pritch- ard and Joe Muha also showed themselves to be of outstanding 1 1 Bac Muha Brea}(s Loose in y.P.I. Came r - i. calibre. Because of the presence of many scouts Coach Hubert kept his tricky offense under cover and, indeed, the need was not felt for it at any time. V. M. I., 0; Duke, 33 After having initiated their season the week before, V. M. I. opened Duke ' s with a game but decisive loss. Coach Wade started his second team but, after a scoreless first quarter, he sent in his first string outfit which clicked immediately. Although outclassed by a stronger team throughout the rest of the gam.e the Fighting Squadron lived up to its name. TTie fine playing was sparked by Joe Muha and Nellie Catlett. Captain Ripper Walker of the Keydets was an offensive and especially a defensive tower of strength throughout the game. This was one of Duke ' s hardest opening tilts in many a season. V. M. I., 13; Newberry. On October 5 V. M. I. ' s hard-driving backs and aggressive line met a surprisingly tough opponent in the form of Newberry College. Although the team did not have too much trouble with the South Carolinians, they were only able to crack their defense for two touch- downs. Bosh Pritchard was replaced in this fray by Big Joe Muha who with Nelson Catlett managed to gain one hundred seventy-five Tipton Tacl le Skladany Center ,s .?.-f »- Walker Leads Interference For Matlhervs Sexton End Williams Taclflc Clark End yards from the line of scrimmage. Son Shelby shone with his fine passing to Red Sexton, outstanding end. In the last minute of the game Muha broke through for a beautiful goal line dash that was recalled because of a clipping penalty. V. M. I., 13; Davidson, 7 On a beautiful, warm October day V. M. I. ' s gridiron varriors put on an excellent show by defeating Davidson ' s Wildcats in Char- lotte. This game was played before the corps which journeyed from Lexington and our most distinguished alumnus. General Marshall. After a scoreless first period the Fighting Squadron tallied when Son Shelby shot a beautiful pass to Bill Clark, substitute end. In the third period V. M. I. again crossed the goal line when Bosh Pritchard caught a Davidson punt and ran beautifully through the whole oppo- sition. The crowd was kept on its feet most of the time for fine passing attacks on both sides were extremely dangerous. However to ards the latter minutes of play V. M. I. was definitely master of the field. V. M. I., 7; Virginia, With nearly fifty years of football rivalry back of them, the Fighting Squadron and the Cavaliers met on an eventful, rainy after- noon almost on even terms. The Keydets staved off ' irginia " s big threat in the first period and in the next V. M. I. made their breaks when Billy Walker intercepted Dudley ' s pass on the Squadron ' s thirty- eight-yard line. From this time on things went well for the visiting team. Luther Sexton ' s sensational catch of Joe Muha ' s pass was un- doubtedly the highlight of an exciting day, and prepared the way for Catlett ' s knifing plunge over the goal line. Virginia never really had a chance after this and the cadets returned to Lexington with the victory. V. M. I. ' s extra fight made the difference. V. M. I., 7; RICHMOND. 9 In the upset of the season the Big Red Team lost to Richmond ' s Spiders after thoroughly outplaying them. Everything but the score was in the Keydets ' favor. A V. M. I. bobble on their own twenty led to a field goal which sent the Richmonders ahead 3-0. After out- rushing their opponents ' backs all afternoon, the cadets finally got into scoring position in the fourth period when Son Shel by passed to Luther Sexton for the touchdown. The Richmond attack was squelched after the kickoff and a long punt slipped from Shelby ' s hands only to be recovered by the opposition who plunged over for the score. V. M. I. valiantly fought to regain their lead in vain. Thus ended one of the most surprising upsets of the 1940 football season. NuGEN ' End Reutt Guard Matthews Back McGraw Guard nierference For Pritchard Prikhard Hits His Stride Ward Back ■ SOTNYK Back V. M. I., 0; WILLIAM AND MARY, In their Homecoming Game the Squadron fought to a scoreless tie with the Indians. It was a tight contest throughout the afternoon. V. M. I. ' s hne shone and Tom Thrasher and Billy Walker were out- standing in the guard positions; Captain Ripper Walker did a superb job of backing up the forward wall. As desperate hopes both teams attempted field goals, which in each case, fell short of the goal posts. Bosh Pritchard ' s twenty-eight-yard punt return in the beginning of the fourth period was a highlight of the game, but a fumble ended this threat. V. M. I.. 20; WASHINGTON U, 13 For the first time in V. M. I ' s history the football team traveled west of the Mississippi. During a rainy afternoon the Westerners showed a brilliant passing attack, but the Cadets ' superior power and line play made the difference. Joe Muha and Son Shelby were the consistent ground gainers, the former having accounted for two touch- downs in the second period and the latter having knifed across the Washington goal line in a flashy third period run. Undoubtedly the outstanding run was the end around in which Bill Nugent gained fifteen yards, clearing the way for the second tally. The Keydets definitely had the edge for the Bears found their only hope was by the aerial route. Demmler Center V. M. I.. 20; MARYLAND. The team journeyed to Lynchburg for the Maryland game and after the second quar- ter there was no doubt as to the outcome. Joe Muha and Son Shelby were again outstand- ing and kept the opponents ' heads dizzy with fine passing. In the second quarter Muha intercepted a Maryland pass and dashed sixty-five yards for a touchdown. The only Mary- land threat was stopped in the fourth preiod when a fumble was snagged by Billy Walker. This initiated the second touchdown advance which was outstanding because of Shelby ' s al- most impossible catch of a twenty-five-yard pass from Catlett. Later in the final minutes Ellington blocked a Maryland kick and Gerald Williams recove red for V. M. I. which paved the way for the final score. V. M. I., 14; V. P. I., The successful season came to an end with the sound defeat of the traditional Thanks- giving rivals, V. P. I. Big Joe Muha threw a beautiful pass to Catlett in the second quarter for a twelve-yard scoring play. Barney Skladany, Keydet center, set up the second score by intercepting a mid-field pass in the fourth quarter. The outstanding back through- out the game was again Joe Muha who carried the ball eighteen times for one hundred fourteen yards. Captain Ripper Walker ended a brilliant career and, as blocking back, fur- nished the scoring punch which gave the enthusiastic crowd a wonderful exhibition. A large share of the credit for the victory was awarded the massive Squadron line which moved faster than it had all season and smeared the V. P. I. reverses and spinners before they could get started. Bungo Tipton threw his massive frame about the field with amazing agility and made the majority of the tackles in this his last game. Red Sexton also finished an enviable career as one of the state ' s best ends. The opponents fought courageously throughout the contest but it was V. M. I. ' s game all the way.

Southern Conference Tournament RESUME Keen interest in golf at the Institute brought about the founding of a golf team this year. Col- onel Mayo was secured as coach, and Chester Drake was elected captain of the team. In their first year of intercollegiate competition, the VMI linksmen have made a very credit- able showing. The team has shown constant improvement through the season, and next year they should go places. Graduation will take only one regular, Stan Navas. Chester Drake Caplam Col.

Coach Jimmy Walicer ' s hardwood artists roared through the remainder of the season until finally chased out of the semi-final round of the annual Southern Conference Basketball Tournament by the South Carohna Gamecocks. The season ' s record was ten wins chaulked up against six losses, the best record hung up by a V. M. I. court aggregation in more than a decade. The season produced many exciting games as well as givmg to the fans of the Cld Do.mmion and North Carolina several new stars. Of all the tussles, the first game with Virginia was perhaps the most thrilling. The Keydets won the ball game, but only after tiny Jimmy O ' Keeffe had entered the game in its dying moments and dumped in four field goals to give V. M. I. a 42 to 39 advantage. Other games that had the spectators hanging onto their seats was the first game with the Tech- men from V. P. I., a slam-bang affair that the Keydets captured 60 to 52; the Wake Forest tiff down in Tarheelia, which was won when Emil Sotnyk, brilliant sophomore guard for V. M. I., heaved in a long shot in the last 30 seconds to win the gam.e for Jimmy Walker ' s boys; the second game with V. P. I. and the final game of the season with South Carolina. It was Jimmy O ' Keeffe who was re- sponsible for the second victory over the Gobblers when he managed to garner six points in the closing minutes of the contest, but against the Gamecocks, Dame Fortune refused to smile upon the Kaydets and Pres Westmoreland, South Carolina ' s stellar forward, sank a foul goal in the last ten seconds of the ball game to hand the Birds the gam.e and the opportunity of meeting Duke in the final round of the Conference tourney. $OTNY« $HOM0 Perhaps the most consistent player on the team was Captam Bobby Foster, who was the mainstay of both the attack and defense. Teamed with Foster was dimmutive Emil Sotnyk, Virginia ' s newest basketball star. These two formed a smooth working guard combination and were dangerous shots from any spot on the floor. Foster was named to the first team of the mythical All-Virginia five and garnered a second team berth on the All-Tournament selection, while Sotnyk was the choice of the coaches and officials for one of the guard slots on the First All-Tournament aggregation. Up front at the forward posts were rangy Eddie Stumpf, high scoring southpaw and Jack Wood- ward, the Cinderella boy who worked himself up to a first team berth from the reserves. Dick Wil- liams, captain-elect for the ' 41 - ' 42 season, played good defensive ball at center throughout the season and did a fine job of holding down those two high-scoring Conference pivotmen, Glamack of North Carolina and Knox of William and Mary. Stumpf was named to the Second All-Tournament Team along with Foster. In addition to these first stringers, there were other men who saw plenty of action during the season and who were responsible for much of the team ' s success. There was Jimmy O ' Keeffe, who personal- ly pulled two games out of the fire in their closing moments; Joe Shomo, another high scoring reservist who was a clutch player; Vince Thomas, a Sophomore guard who improved with every game and Gordon Smith, Joe Parrish and Bosh Pritchard. Parrish, who was regular center during the 1939-40 season, was benched most of this season by a trick knee and saw comparatively little action. An interesting sidelight of the season was the luck of the draw which sent V. M. I. and Wash- ington and Lee to battle in the opening round of the Conference Tournament held in Raleigh ' s spa- cious Memorial Stadium. This was the first formal athletic contest between the two Lexington insti- tutions since 1904 and the Keydets emerged the victors by a 39 to 32 score. WRESTLING Steve Swift Captain 1 75 lb.

' s 1941 wrestling team undertook the heaviest schedule since the inauguration of the sport at the Institute and finished the season with four victories, three defeats and one tie. A closer look at the records show that Coach Sam Barnes ' grapplers were undefeated in Southern Conference competition, although North Carolina University gained a 14-14 deadlock. In the Southern Conference Tournament the Keydets were runners-up to the Washington and Lee Generals. The three defeats were at the hands of powerful intersectional opponents: Kansas State, Illinois and Franklin and Marshall. SWETTING 135-pound Class In the opening meet against Kansas State, Captain Steve Swift registered V. M. I. ' s only win in a 27-3 set back. Bob Jeffrey looked very good losing a very close decision to Paulsen, 5 to 4. North Carolina ' s Tar Heels pulled a surprise in the second meet of the season by tying the Keydets 14-14. Bob Jeffrey registered the only fall while Steve Swift, Joe Swetting and Jack Dillard won de- cisions to complete V. M. I. ' s scoring. The University of Illinois handed the Keydets a 21-3 defeat, but the meet was closer than the score indicates. McGrrath, sophomore 1 28-pounder, won the only decision for V. M. I., but Dillard, Jeffrey and Swift all lost close decisions in hard-fought matches. Rebounding from the two losses and a tie in the early season meets, V. M. I. ' s grapplers won an over N helm- ing 34-0 victory over V. P. I. In the feature bout Captain Steve Swift won a decision over Tech ' s Bill Zydiak, previously undefeated in three years of competition. McGrath, Bache, McCord and Dorrier all gained falls while Swift, Nash LIUWARDS 145-pound Class and Gayle took decisions. Al Ellender won by a default when his opponent was injured in the first round. V. M. I. won its second conference victory by whipping Duke 25 to 5. Steve Swift and Jim Dorrier won falls while Ellender, McGrath, Jeschke, Edwards and McCord won decisions. Coach Barnes ' grapplers were too strong for the Blue Devils who took only one match out of eight. Winning six out of eight m.atches, V. M. I. won a top-heavy 22-8 victory over North Carolina State. Jack McGrath con- tinued his undefeated streak by pinning Miller while Dillard, Swettmg, Beamer and Wilson won decisions. In the 1 75- pound class Steve Swift won by a forfeit. V. M. I. ' s matmen pressed Franklin and Marshall, but the Pennsylvanians were too strong and won the meet 24 to 8. Jim Wilson pinned his man and Bob Jeffrey won a decision to give V. M. I. eight points. On the night before the Southern Conference Tournament V. M. I. defeated Davidson 18 to 6. With the exception of Swift and Dorrier, Coach Barnes used his second string in this match. Ellender, Ma- hone, Edwards, McCord, Gayle and Swift took decisions for V. M. I. Washington and Lee nosed out the Keydets by three points to win the team championship in the conference tournament held at College Park, Maryland. DUCK hSEAMER 5ou( ,crn Con crcnce 1 55-pound Champior " Bob " Jeffrey Southern Conference 145-pound Runner-up Buck Beamer won the only individual championship for V. M. I. by winning the 155- pound class. Beamer defeated Weil of North Carohna m an extra period. Jack Dillard lost a close decision to Graham of W. L. in the finals. Bob Jeffrey also reached the finals, but was defeated by Somerville of North Carolina. Captain Steve Swift lost his first South- ern Conference match to Paul McNeil of Maryland. This marked McNeil ' s forty-first victory. Jim Wilson, 1 65-pounder, was elected captain of the 1942 team. In addition to Wil- son, five monogram men will be on hand to form a nucleus for next year ' s team. The return of Dillard, McGrath, Edwards, McCord and Dorrier with several promising rats coming up from this year ' s strong rat team make the prospects for a winning team next year bright. Coach Barnes uses a two-man system and must find replacements for Captain Swift, Carter Beamer, Bob Jeffrey, Joe Swetting, Al Ellender and Eddie Gayle.

M RAW ROM V RESUME Opening with Williarn and Mary, the track team, captained by Charlie Rockwood, imposed an impressive 78-48 defeat on the Indians. In this, their initial test of the season, the Keydets capitalized on William and Mary ' s weakness in the field events. The meet took place under very adverse weather conditions. Nevertheless the cold wind and rain did not seem to hurt the times in the running events. Dale and Chewning looked exceptionally good in winning the mile in 4:35.2 while Louthan and McClure ran a nice 440-yard dash. Dave Oakey made the best jump of his career and cleared the bar at 5 feet 10 inches. Bosh Pritchard was high point man with firsts in the 220-yard dash and the broad jump. The strong Virginia team minus their crack hurdler still had points to spare in administering the Institute a decisive defeat. However, Jack Wright caused not a few eyebrows to raise when he ran the one-hundred-yard dash in 1 0.2 in his initial appearance. Tliis meet was a reversal of the first one of the season for the tracksters won six out of eight running events and lost all six field events. McClure won his first varsity race and must have warmed the Colonel ' s spirits when he did the 440-yard dash in 51.8. The Rathburn brothers gave V. M. I. plenty of trouble by amassing a total of 22 1 3 points between them. Billy Romm was high point man for V . M. I. with eight points. Maryland upset the favored Keydets in a thrill- ing meet, the outcome of which was not decided until the running of the last two events, the t ■o- mile run and the low hurdles. Maryland ' s great distance champion. Tommy Fields, von the two- mile by a large margin and ' . M. Is Romm vas beaten by a foot in the hurdles. Fate was definite- ly against V. M. I. for in the very first event Nelson Catlett and Tom McGraw were beaten in the javelin when Maryland ' s Shaffer beat them by inches with his last throw. In this meet Captain Charlie Rockwood turned in the remarkable time WRJGHT ARNOLD J0NE9 ■ — " ■ Wright Wins the Hundred Against Virginia of 1 :58.3. Muha also got off one of his best heaves when he tossed the shot 44.6 feet. In the V. P. I. contest V. M. I. won a story-book victory when Bosh Pritchard came through in the last event — the broad jump — to beat the Gobblers by a 65-61 score. Cap- tain Charlie Rockwood set a new V. M. I. record in the 880 but the brilliance of his per- formance was somewhat overshadowed by the fact that he was beaten by Frank Shipe, Tech co-captain. This finals Colonel Read will be hit hard by graduation. Rockwood, Louthan, and Dale are leaving. Rockwood and Dale at present have none who can come near filling their shoes. Both of these men have been outstanding in their four years of competition and con- sistent point getters in every meet. Louthan ' s shoes will be capably filled by McClure but Frank will be sorely missed at the finish of the 440. Joe Muha will be on hand to carry the weights and Charlie Chewning will be the leading applicant for the mile burden. Big things are expected of these two lads who are showing great promise this year. Pritchard and Wright will again handle the dashes, Romm the hurdles. In the pole vault Reverly, Edwards and Pike will handle things, while Dave Oakey and Jimmy Satterfield will be depended on for points in the high jump. These remaining men coupled with the wealth of material coming up from the rat team give V. M. I. every reason to hope for a very success- ful season next year.

This year Papa is the proud possessor of a walloping good nine — and we mean walloping. Led by second classmen Catlett, Wray, and Dick Wil- liams the Keydets have given opposing pitchers con- siderable trouble. Captain Frank Carney has been the inspirational leader at bat for he invariably comes through in the pinches with hard, clean hits. Bor- rowed from the track team is Big Joe Muha, a batting threat to any team and a fielder who throws the ball with the accuracy and speed of a bullet. The pitching staff, led by Shelby and Stumpf, is proving itself capable of maintaining a good average in the win column. Shelby and Stumpf are the two 0 TALIAFERRO LtECtf Pa " ¥ WILUAM5 - ' V - Vmt - r JONES SPE$5ARD C osc Flav at Firsi reliables with Spessard and Hogan adding strong support. The latter shows excellent promise and Coach Hubert is grooming him for bigger things. Prob- ably the most spectacular and colorful baseball player to don the V. M. I. uniform is Nelson Catlett who is a natural catcher. In the last game played with Michigan, V. M. I. pulled one out of the fire by bunching hits and taking advantage of the opportunities. It was at the finish of this game that the rooters predicted that the Keydets would finish the season with a record that has not been m.ade in many a year. Cross Country RocKWOOD, Captaii P|H|P( 7 " " ( ' ' ' ' BPl Pre-season time trials promised big things for the cross country team this year and, because of the two meet cancella- tions the season started later than usual. On October 25th the team traveled to Virginia and took sweet revenge for last season ' s close defeat to the tune of 19-43. Jimmy Dale led the field across the finish line while his teammates captured the third through fifth places. Charley Chewmng finished a close third behind Virginia ' s Forsyth and Dolph Tausky was fourth. Ed and Men Jones tied for fifth and Charlie Rockwood made a strong finish in seventh position. On October 29th the harriers made it two in a row by soundly beating V. P. I. 16-45. There was a three-way tie among Jimmy Dale, Dolph Tausky, and Charlie Chewning for first place. Meriwether Jones crossed the line in fourth position and Charlie Rockwood and Ed Jones tied for sixth berth. Gene Kelley came in number ten. In the State Meet the undefeated runners carried away the championship. V. M. I. ran as a team to bunch six men in the first eleven to cross the line, and kept their score down with a total of thirty-three points, the next contender being W. and L. with fifty-seven points. Jimmy Dale and Dolph Tausky tied for fourth place, Chewning was sixth, Meri Jones eighth, Rockwood tenth, Ed Jones eleventh, and Frank twenty-fifth. In the Southern Conference Meet at Maryland the team won third place in the five-mile course. Jimmy Dale crossed the final marker in seventh place; Tausky was close on his heels in the number eight spot. Other V. M. I. men among the leaders in the field were Chewning, Ed and Meriwether Jones, Charlie Rockwood, Gene Kelly, and O. D. Dennis. Swim Team Major Lowrv, Coach Because of severe colds in barracks the 1941 swimming team was barred from the pool until a week before the first meet. However a creditable showing was made in the openmg encounter. Duke took the lead in the first event, the three hundred yard medley, and never relinquished it. Captain Harry Stengele took the individual scoring honors with fifteen points. V.M.I, lost 44-31. N. C. State handed the swimmers their second defeat by a score of 41-34 on February 1 in Raleigh. Harry Stengele was again the high point man taking firsts in the one hundred and two hundred yard free style events. He was also the anchor man in the four hundred yard relay team which won handily. Chuck Wilkms swam a fast fifty yard free style race to beat all oppon- ents. In their first home meet the swimmers lost to the University of North Carolina ' s Southern Conference Champions. The Carolina medley team set a new pool record in the first event. Harry Stengele and Chuck Wilkins were both outstanding for the losers. Coach Lowry ' s proteges came through the next Saturday to upset William and Mary who had previously defeated both N. C. State and Virginia. Again Captain Stengele plunged through and won his usual three events, the hundred, two-twenty, and four-forty yard free style to again gain fifteen points for his team. Alan Potts won another ten by taking the diving and the breast stroke. The meet ' s most thrilling event came when Wilkins won the fifty yard dash in 25.8 seconds. In the next meet V.M.I, took Clemson over the waves to the tune of 49-26. The following Wednesday the swimmers wound up their duel meets by outscoring V.P.I. 39-35 at Blacksburg. In the Southern Con- ference meet Captain Stengele ended a fine career by winning the two-twenty and breaking the conference record in the four- forty. Then with fifteen minutes rest he swam a magnificent anchor leg in the relay. By un- animous vote he was awarded the trophy for the best individual performance.

Rallying from the early season slump, they downed the Trinity College racqueteers, but the strong Mich- igan team was too much for them the next match. G.W.U., Wake Forest, and William and Mary fell victims to the Keydets by one-sided scores in the next three meets. The netters were led by Hugh Gantt who played fine tennis all spring. The sensation of the team, however, was Vince Thomas, a third classman who ran up a long string of wins. Gantt and Luke Hill will be lost by graduation, but the prospects for next season are encouraging. .— 3 ■ " ' S.i MmM.iA»A- Caplain Cavell, Coach. Mullen, Salterfield, Preston. Hill, Birchett.

Stell proved himself to be an able back and played an alert game. It was a see-saw af- fair and V.M.I, threatened twice only to be thwarted by costly fumbles. As this was the first game the new cadets never seemed to really settle down but they turned out to be a scrappy outfit with some very good material. Ducko played especially well at his end position and Seay was consistent ground gainer in the backheld. Three blocked punts made the difference in the second game with the William and Mary Freshmen. Undoubtedly the inability of the Keydets to protect their kickers caused their trouble for otherwise they were very evenly matched. Stell ' s fine kicking was the highlight of the rats ' performance and the team severely felt his loss after an injury in the second quarter. In the third game although they made only two first downs the yearlings succeeded in defeating Richmond on the Alumni field. The score occurred when a fine pass from Buck Seay was caught by Mattern who dashed fifty-five yards across the goal line. Woody Gray ' s boys covered a highly touted aerial atack. Gianelloni, acting V.M.I. Captain, was the bright star of the line and, on more than one ocasion, he blocked double his allotment of opponents. In the Maryland game the rats took hold to defeat the freshmen on a soggy, slippery field at College Park. Buck Seay and Slats Mattern accounted for the two V.M.I, scores. The first touchdown came as the re- sult of a cleverly executed off tackle play in which Seay dashed through the Maryland left side for a beautiful eighty yard run. This occurred in the first quarter. The other touchdown was made when Mat- tern intercepted a Maryland pass and crossed the goal line untouched. After the young Terrapins scored in the third quarter, the two teams settled down to a real old down-to-earth struggle which resulted in no score. In the rats ' big game with V.P.I, on Armistice Day they lost a hard game on a rain soaked field. The margin of victory came early in the third period just when both teams had settled, it seemed, with a deadlock. Virginius Stell, the yearlings ' triple threat man, led his team ' s gallant fight a nd provided the necessary punch to attain a 6-0 lead. He again placed his team in scoring position by intercepting a Tech pass and forged to the five yard line. However the Gobbler forward wall held. Stell led the V.M.I, defense which was the team ' s biggest asset, and he proved himself a valuable all around player. Ducko and Stagg also showed up well in this the rats ' final contest.

The rats won five victories and dropped one close meet to Woodberry Forest 14 to 12. Leroy Roper was elected captain and finished the season undefeated. Men expected to strengthen next year ' s varsity squad are Roper, Burnham, Seay, Sherrard, Stell, Tate, Smeloff, Spencer and Marks. In the opening meet the rats whipped North Carolina decisively 26-6. Roper, Spencer, Granger and Marks won quick falls. The rats won their second victory against Petersburg High School 21 to 11. Roper, King and Stell won falls. The yearlings ' third victim was V. P. I. The rats won 27 to 3 with Roper, Sherrard and Seay pinning their men. Duke was the fourth team to fall before the new cadets who piled up a 33 to 5 score, registering six falls and a decision. The winning streak was stretched to five when North Carolina State was snowed under 34 to 0. This was N. C. State ' s first loss in five starts. The rats ended their season dropping a close 14 to 12 decision to the strong Wood- berry Forest team. Leroy Roper decisioned Captain Griffith. Roper won all the rest of his bouts during the season by falls. Spencer wrestled in all five meets and ended the season undefeated. Several rats are marked not only as good varsity material, but as threats to varsity reg- ulars for starting positions on next year ' s team. Rat Basketball SEASON After tasting defeat at the hands of the Jefferson High Five from Roanoke, the Rat Basketball Team hit its stride and closed the season with one of the most impressive com- pleted by any " little red team " in recent years. Steele Mclntyre paced the team throughout the season in one forward spot ably assisted by the two stellar guards, Mattern and Walker. Most important victories were the double victory over the Virginia Frosh, the revenge victory over Jefferson High, and the victory over the Techlets from V. P. I. SlanJint;: Gray. Coach; Lehman. Poindexter, Ducko, Easterley. Wheal. Ma Kneeling: Irwin. Mclntyre. Maltern. Ward. Wall. Walker Rat Track RESULTS V. M. 1 81 V. M. 1 57 V. M. I — V. M. I — William and Mary 36 Virginia 60 V. P. I — Richmond — State Meet at Richmond The rat team opened the season with a decisive victory over the William and Mary freshmen. They swept all three places m six events to run roughshod over their opponents. Led by Matern who scored eleven points the rats had little trouble. Ducko, Sherrard, East- erly, and Wasdell also made creditable showings. Idle for a week the rats bowed to Virginia in their second contest by the close margin of 60-57. This meet was a thriller from beginning to end and was not decided until the last event had been heard from. Colonna running his first mile race in competition turned in an excellent performance in being inched out by Virginia ' s Weston. The time was 4:46.5 and since the mile is a race which doesn ' t come at once, but only after careful practice; great things are expected of Colonna in the future. The rat team has several promising stars for next year ' s varsity. Sherrard has bettered any varsity performance in the pole vault by a foot. Easterly and Mattern are both prom- ising prospects in the high jump and several events. Mike Ducko will be a big asset in the shot and discus next year, for he is already putting the shot 43 feet. In the distance running CoUona and Johnston look best. These men promise to make places for themselves on the varsity next year. Rat Cross Country V. M. 1 40; Virginia V. M. 1 35; V. P. I Third Place State Meet 17 ,19 Colonel Read ' s rat Cross Country squad was an unknown quantity at the beginning of the season but under his fine tutelage a good squad was developed. Also the fine spirit of the varsity team soon was evident in the yearlings. In the first meet against Virginia the freshmen harriers showed their superiority over the Lexington runners when they defeated them 40-17. Moses crossed the finish line in the first position and was followed by Dumm, Helmen, Sunday, and Townes in fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth and tenth places respectively. The following Wednesday these men had profited by their experience at Charlottesville and lost a meet at V. P. I. by a much closer score; they were a much improved group. After the marked improvement it was not a surprise when these boys took third place in the state meet at Williamsburg. Dumm was the first V. M. I. runner to cross the finish line which he did in seventh place. Helmen was close behind his teammate in the eleventh position and Twom- bley was close on his heels. Townes, Trice, and Sunday came m close behmd m fourteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth places, respectively. Rat Baseball I It is encouraging to see that the rats have at last been able to put a good ball team on the diamond. Coach Gray has done a good job with his green men. Stell, J. P. Williams, Stevens, Smith, and T. C. Wilson have displayed fielding and batting potentialities that will assure them places on the varsity squad in future years. Like the varsity their hitting seems to be their strong asset. Also strong cogs in the rat baseball machine are Doumar, Walker, Christian, and Lindsay. Coach Gray ' s initial year as baseball coach has proven to be a good one for the team. A new cadet baseball squad that can hit and field as this one can gives us the hope that V. M. I. will produce a better brand of ball in the future. THE SQUAD ;?? ?? G. S. HORNE Editor R. W. REPLOGLE Assistant To George Blackburn: He even crams For health exams.

" Victim: " Well, you see, I had a date with a Lex- ington girl. We were dancing in the living room when her father came in, and . . . well, he ' s kinda hard of hearing and didn ' t know we were playing music. " Pat and Mike were detailed to scout duty over- seas. Concealed in a cow ' s hide, they had wandered near the German lines, seeking military information. Suddenly Pat, who occupied the latter half of the hide, prodded Mike viciously. " Say up there, let ' s get out of here. " " What ' s the matter? " Mike wanted to know. " Matter? " hoarsed Pat. " Here comes a German with a milk pail! " McCauley: " Who was that woman I seen you outwit last night? " Sundav Morning: A Sludv in Contrast She: " Honey, what did you do to me? " He: " Darling, I scared you. " She: " Scare me again. " Ten minutes later: " Scare me agam. " Twenty minutes later: " Scare me again. " One hour later: " Please scare me again. " He: " BOO! " A distinguished visitor to an insane asylum went lo the telephone and found difficulty m getting his connection. Exasperated, he shouted to the operator. " Look here, girl, do you know who I am? " " No, " came back the calm reply, " but I know where you are. " He: " Hello there! How are you? " She: " Hello. " He: " I haven ' t seen you in a long time. " She: " No? " He: " Where ' ve you been all summer? " She: " Around. " He: " Doing anything this evening? " She: " es. " He: " Say, what have I done? ou act almost as if you didn ' t know me. " She: " Do I?

No, I ' m not doing a thing tonight — what about you? " A salesman had left a gallon of fine clover honey under the care of his hotel porter. He returned several days later with his wife and asked after his deposit. " Rastus, " he said, " where ' s my honey? " " Ah doan ' know, boss, " replied Rastus, his mem- ory forsaking him. He eyed the lady cautiously. " She doan ' work here no mo. " Minister: " Do you say your prayers at night, lit- tle boy? " Freddy: " Yes, sir. " Minister: " And do you say them in the morning too? " Freddy: " Naw. I ain ' t scared in the daytime. " Old Lady (in Boley ' s) : " What ' s that big red book over there? " Clerk: " Songs the Ke dels Sing.

College Bill went into a shop to buy a jar, and found one sittmg on a table upside down. " My goodness, it has no mouth! " He turned it over, and stared at it fixedly. " It ' s simply amazing!

Jes ' blow it down mah back, if yo ' please. " One of the Richmond boys walked into an ex- pensive restaurant. He was ushered to a table; he sat down, and ordered a glass of water. When the waiter brought the water our friend swallowed the whole glass at a gulp and ordered another. While the waiter was off after the second glass, Little Jit took out a small package of sandwiches and spread them on the table. Immediately a severe in- dividual drew up and began, " I beg your pardon, sir, but this isn ' t ... " " Who are you? " " I am the manager. " " Good — I was just going to send for you. Why isn ' t the orchestra playmg? " One of those Helen Hokinson club ladies was %e promcne along Fifth Avenue with a miniscule Peki- nese on a leash. A huge van was pulled up to the curb and a pair of hulking mechanics were banging away at the engine. When the lady and her dog drew near, one of the moving men stepped closer and politely tipped his cap. " Lady, could we borrow your dog for a mmute? " " Why, what are you going to do with himV " " Hitch im to the truck and get it started. " " How idiotic! A little dog like that can ' t pull a great, big truck! " " Oh, that ' s all right, lady, " replied the truckster with complete assurance. " We got whips. " Mccrumsclerk: " What sort of toothbrush do you want? " Groome: " A big one — there ' s four men in my room. " " You don ' t chew tobacco, do you, little boy? ' " No ma ' m, but I could get you a cigarette. " Arriving at the Robert E. Lee, one of the chaper- ones thought she ' d better know where the fire escapes were, just in case, so she started explormg. During her tour, she opened her door and found herself in a bath- room occupied by a man who resembled equally W. C. Fields and Winston Churchill. " Oh, I ' m sorry, " she twittered, " I was looking for the fire escape. " Continuing her search, she presently heard the pad- ding of bare feet on the carpet behind her. A shout made her turn. " Wait a minute! " It was her friend of the bathroom, clad only in a bath towel. " I say, where ' s the fire? " Man had a Utile plane And in it she did frisk — A ' olP wasn ' t that an awful shame.

Tootsies, Tatery Chips, Cheezie Weezies, Gingie Bits, Itsey Cakes, Sweety Toofums, Dramma ' s Donuts . . . " Man (toddling toward rear of store) : " Tan ' t det anysin ' else. Dot to det some meat!

He was intrusted with a pass key to every room. After several weeks had passed, the dean told him to come round and collect his wages. " What! " exclaimed Oscar. " Do I get paid too? " Man, very hoarse with cold and unable to speak above a whisper, knocks at doctors door. Doctor s sife opens the door. Man: " Is the doctor home?

" Mother: " Well, Freddy, how did you get along in school today? " Freddy: " All right. Miss Wimpl was asking us all where we were born.

" Luck had had some bad luck with a shipment of uniforms — somebody had dropped the box on a skunk, which had retaliated in the only way it knew how. Naturally Drac was glad to learn that the consignee had a bad cold. He took the uniforms in to his cus- tomer, who, to Drac ' s embarassment, msisted upon trying them on immediately. " Fit OK, " remarked the afflicted cadet, as if pleasantly surprised. " Yeah. Sure. Perfect. Like a glove. Couldn ' t be better, " said Drac. " Say, " wondered the customer, " they ' re a little damp, arent ' t they? " " Oh, that — well — they ship ' em damp — keep bel- ter — don ' t get permanent wrinkles — the best com- panies always do it — you see, if they weren ' t slightly damp, . . .

" The first classman ' s date sniffed haughtily as the tiny rat cut in. " And just why did you have to cut in when I was dancing? " she inquired, in nastissimus accents. The rat hung his head in shame. " I ' m sorry, mam, but I ' m working my way through and your partner was waving a five dollar bill at me. " Rudy, hurrying for assembly: " Dear God. don ' t let me be late. Please, God, don ' t let me run a stink- er. " He trips. " Well, you don ' t need to shove!
