As once again a First Class goes out to take up arms in a war-torn world, may it find here a pleasant return to the heartache and the laughter, the hardship and the fun, the dis- cipline and privileges that all went together to make these four years something finer in looking back than they ever were during 1938-42.

MARR. JR. W E, the members of the Class of 1 942, dedicate this fifty-eighth edition of the V. M. I. BoMB to the man who has done more to further our common interest and encourage us toward a finer life than any other person. His brilliance in the classroom has strengthened our academic achievement; his practical judgment has steadied our faltermg steps; and his never faihng cheerful- ness, humor, and vivacity have never ceased to charm us. If ever we attain those standards of loyalty, devotion to profession, and generosity that we have seen exemplified by him in our daily progress through our cadetship, we indeed shall have lived. Our appreciation for the rare privilege of having served under him is heartfelt and IN MEMORIAM A: , S the Class of 1942 goes forth to do its its part in the war in which we have become engaged, it pauses briefly to pay tribute to those graduates of the V. M. I. who have already laid down their lives in the service of their country in the present struggle. April 29, 1941— WOOD ALL, J. A., ' 29.

C. E. is the oldest and has the largest enrollment of any course at V. M. I. and is ranked as one of the best of its kind in the country. It ' s no " snap " as can be learned from the haggard cadets who are returning from bouts with Hydraulics, or Railroads, or pos- sibly 2 a. m. dates with overdue drawing plates. The only re- ward for reaching 1 -B C.E. is having the first afternoon " hay period " in four years. But in spite of all the work that " Buzz " , Col. " T.S. " Hanes, Col. " Wink " Boykin, and the other in- structors hand out, the Civil teach- ers are conscientiously concerned that every man passes the course. The Civil Department wants to turn out good engineers; and what ' s more, they do it ! i ' t».a!iti!Bii B VMwwiwiiiwa .ij.;.i!iiwm i jiMiii Jac}(son Memorial Hall Preston Librarv JUUtfAUlHili W. H.

Trinkle Nol in picture: Major Home The Department of ElecthcalEngineehng The boys with the high resistance brains and insulated nerves are known as " those Electricals " by the rest of barracks. In spite of dire warnings by the class ahead, there are always a few brave, or foolhardy, souls who cast themselves on the not too tender mercies of the E.E. Dept. The course is hard, and of course, fair. For three years they face life in its most virulent form. From elementary cir- cuits to high frequency oscillographs they f ollow blindly be- hind _ " The Foot " , " Lightning Bill " , " Otto " , and " The Sen- ator. " Hays become a haven of rest for an average of six hours a night. The would-be Steinmetzes find out what it is to look Brig. Gen. Anderson up from a smoking sliderule and see the O. C. with that " Who ' s the lucky man " glint in his eye. The terrible shriek of a short-circuited generator burning itself up because of his faulty connection and the slow trek up the stairs to inform " General Foot " that his new gen- erator is now strictly salvage are all part of that e.xperience, which, along with the sweet, makes a cadet a suc- cess in that most exacting of profes- sions, Electrical Engineering. M r ] Mr. Willard, Dr. Leed, Mr. Thomas, Lt. Lang. Capt, Kelly, Maj. Horn, Lt. Col. Carroll, Ll. Col Ritchey, Lt. Col. German, Col. Steidtmann The Department of Chemistry Long hours of lab and extra time stolen from short days to fulfill the ever increasing requirements of " Les " , " Butch " , and " Doc ' are forever interruptmg the ordmary routine of " the Chemists. " It is hard work, long and tedious, which goes to keep VMI ' s chemistry department at the front. " Cussed " time and time again for the every-day grade the department must have, the profs attempt to convey through thick skulls the fundamentals of general chemistry, qualitative and quantitative, the organic, physical, and industrial. Likewise the pre-meds must learn under " Doc " why " ontogeny recapitulates CoL. German phylogeny " as well as the difference between the " afferents " and " effer- ents. " Not to be forgotten are the minor incidents, the characters and real personalities that are brought out in the lab. " Shug " and Lawson are al- ways ready to lend a helping hand, and the profs are always in the back- ground with a word of advice when It is needed or a word of reprimand when someone is at fault. »,Wi H MIiJIW»IS8 !ll «BRWItWJIiWH fmrnmrnmsmmmmmm s a a r; IS a a s a; Mess Hall V.

Fu Not in picture: Col. Read Department of Liberal Arts Hay-hounds " is the term usually applied to Liberal Artists, all of which can be traced back to the fact that instead of sitting on a high stool at a drawing table or standing in a laboratory, a Liberal Artist can usually accomplish his work in a more com- fortable position, and the " hay " , even if it ' s lumpy, overstretched, and well worn — we still love it — is certainly such a place. Firm in their belief that the educated man stands head and shoulders above the trained man (paging Dodo), students of this department leave the Institute tilled with the knowledge and wisdom of the free arts. Many of them continue their training " f y at other schools, along the lines of journalism, law, or business courses. Some, like students of other courses at V. M. L, are forced to apply their talents to the business of keep- ing the pantry supplied. History tells the Liberal Artist what has gone before; Statistics and Economics help him to know what IS going on now ; and psychology indicates to him what to expect. " It ' s remarkable, isn ' t it? But there it is! " Lancaster, Ll. Col. Blain, Col. Moseley, Col. Mil Nol in picture: Col. Edwards. Lt. Col. Welles Department of Foreign Languages At this time the Department of Foreign Languages takes on an air of importance as never before. With V.M.I. men in the mih- tary service branching out to the four corners of the earth, the knowledge of almost any foreign language is of an untold value. On entering the Institute each Rat has the opportunity of select- ing one of three foreign languages, Spanish, French, or German, as a subject during his first two years. Liberal Artists and Pre- Medical students have the privilege of taking two languages, the second of which is taken during their last two years. Col. Moselev It will most probably turn out that he who took Spanish will find himself stationed in France; he who took French will find himself sta- tioned in Germany ; and he who took German will get shot before he has a chance to apply what Col- onel Edwards taught him. But the ability to read and use a foreign language, any foreign language, gives that person a wider and more workable understanding of what lies beyond his own backyard. Li. Col. Knox, Mr. Callahan, Ll. Ax Col. Byrne. Col. Mayo, Lt. Col. Clarkson Department of Mathematics Possibly the greatest load ever to rest on the shoulders of a V.M.I, cadet is the day he hears the outline of his future math courses. However, under the guidance of an outstanding faculty, most of us manage to pull through our Rat year. And then into the hands of the Third Class falls about the most terrifying course required under the V.M.I, curriculum — calculus! The nightmare of calculus is never forgotten, but the vivid personality of such teachers as Colonel Mayo help spread a litlle excitement along the bumpy mathematical road to a dip. Military life is by tradition inex- tricably wrapped up in the principles of mathematics, but nowhere do we find this more true than at ' .M.I. Since we look upon the Institute as primarily an engineering school, we are certainly justified in giving math- ematics the stress that we do. No man leaves here without that certain knowledge of math that " B. D. " and " Phee " insist will lake him a long way in whatever line of work he chooses. m Li. Ree ' Lt. Col. We s, Lt. Gantt, Lt. Newman m. Col. Heflin, Major Foster Department of Physics Of all the departments included in the V.M.I, system, the De- partment of Physics holds the strongest air of practicality and thoroughness. The text of laws and principles was transformed into impressive realization before our skeptical eyes during the aft- ernoon lab classes of our third class year. Through such experi- mentation, a V.M.I, cadet acquires the very essence of scientific education and an outlook of having laws revealed to him through proof. Few cadets have been known to be happy over the lot of physics when examination period rolls around, but when the accuracy and practicality begin tc count, they thank their lucky stars for " Teddy Bear " , " Buck " , and " Iggy. " In addition, none forget the won ders of natural phenomena discovered and explained in these classes. A knowledge of physics is a luxury and a must for all well-informed people, whether they be engineers or liberal artists. Uh ,Ju s ' ' vl iM %u Garhsom Review . . Diploma and Deirmf . .

We returned to the Institute in early September with a doubt brooding in our minds as to our individual place in international affairs, but still with a certain unexplainable desire to get back to work and buckle down to our studies with a new vigor. We, as does every Second Class, had a great deal to look forward to. With the few restrictions that were removed from us as Second Classmen we gained new respons- ibilities. Our militant work as cadet sergeants was much more difficult than we had heretofore experi- enced; the training we received working with the Finance Committee was invaluable help in training us along business lines; and our studies proved to be a constant source of worry. All through the year the Electrical Engineers worried about blow- ing out ammeters, the Civil Engineers tried to build bridges on paper, the Chemists cursed getting back " repeat " experiments, the Liberal Artists became disgusted with their vain attempts to find research material in the Library, and the Pre-Meds almost went blind fighting microscopes. But we worked — no less cheerfully because of the obstacles met or the difficulties overcome. Ring Figure week-end was a memorable one for us all. We had looked forward to the occasion ever since our Rat year. It was a pleasure to wear our mess jackets for the first time and it is a pleas- ure to wear jour rings. We have worked hard and overcome a great many trials m order to wear our rings — they are, to us, a symbol of one of the strongest of ties — " Brother Rat of ' 43. " December 7th! That day will live long in our memories, not particularly because of Pearl Har- bor, but because of the change that it has wrought in our future. We became immediately conscious of the vital necessity of our military training, both to ourselves and to our country. General Order No. 2 1 was published in Mid-February announc- ing the early graduation of the First Class on May 1 5th, and the respective advancement of all other classes. We became First Classmen and took on our new responsibilities seriously and with the full realization of our future task. We don ' t know what the plans of the Institute or the War Department are for our future, but whatever they may be they will be accepted without reserve. Reviewing the year and the activities of the class we find one element that is very evident. We are a unified group with pride and loyalty in the class itself — a feeling that his grown up through constant association and deepening friendships. These ties we are now making will be of infinite value and unaccountable wealth later in life. We are First Classmen, and it is up to us to run the school in the best manner that we see fit. The new rules we make and the old ones we revoke should be directed towards keeping the corps full of the old spirit for which we are famous. We have followed the Class of 1942 through three years at the Institute, and as they now leave we wish them all the luck and success in the world with the problem they are facing. It is not easy to look forward to the war that they have to and that we shall have to. But we know, from their leader- ship of us, that the U. S. Army will be greatly enhanced by their induction as Second Lieutenants. We shall expect to hear of their exploits in the field at a not too distant date. We wish them good luck and God speed. S S S s , S VIRGINIA MILITARY INSTITUTE History of the Class of 1944 A ND so our first summer furlough ended . • One hundred and eighty-eight of us, from twenty-eight states and three possessions, drifted back to barracks in much the same frame of mind that Third Classmen have returned for one hundred and three years. That last night with our " running girl, " or the dances, or maybe just the comparative ease and freedom which had been ours for almost three months, was still vivid to us. Christmas was a long way off. Still, we were no longer " rats, and seeing the " Brothers " again was good. Predestined by tradition to be the detrimental influence in barracks, we were not in the least re- luctant to assume every privilege which had been denied us last year, nor did we hesitate to with- hold these same privileges from the rats. Of course the rat system was a full time job for us during the first few days, but soon academics became the predominate factor in our lives. Most of us found the courses to be much more difficult this year from what they were last year. From dreaded Calculus classrooms came devastatmg bi- weekly grades along with tales of " transoms, " wringers, " and " duck soup. " The Electricals drew miles of circuits and insisted that theirs was the most difficult course in school, perhaps the hard- est in the world. The Civils discovered that a seven-five bridge is not good enough. They also found that the letters in the alphabet are D. M. D. ! The Chemists were thankful that there could be only ninety-two elements in their unknowns, and hoped that some day everything will run to equi- librium. The Liberal Artists argued that they did not have a " hay " period every afternoon, and con- sistanlly strove " To see the world in a gram of sand, and a heaven in a wild flower. " All Pre- Meds were inestimably encouraged by such state- ments as: " I realize that most of you will end up as high school biology teachers, but one or two may become rif-raf doctors. When are you going to get to work? " Ask them which section feels the closest bond. Throughout the year we have been well repre- sented in the extra-curricular activities in the Insti- tute. From the beginning of football season through the last track meet and baseball game, our athletes have been indispensable. The members of the Third Class have been active in the work on our periodicals, dance committees, the Glee Club, and all the various clubs, committees, and organizations in the school. Those of us who were made cor- porals have " put out " and been consistently " eager. " Our Second Class Finance Committee has already begun its work. Mid-Winters were our last large dances of the year, but an increased number of First Class hops partially made up for the discontinuation of the larger dances. Stumbling down unlighted stairs during black- out instructions, walking post during air raid prac- tices, attending lectures, and the prospect of an early graduation emphasized and re-emphasized the word Military in V. M. I. May the members of the First Class, who vill soon be diffused throughout all our armed forces, display their ability as efficiently in their new posi- tions as they have during the two years we have known them. If this be so, they have no need of the usual " Good Luck. " World conditions have made it impossible to fore- see clearly the future. We feel, however, that we must cling to those principles and ideals which have been the mainstays of our lives. We will not allow them to be disrupted nor lowered by conditions which we all hope and pray will be but a horrible memory within a short time. The training, the knowledge, and the sense of responsibilities which we have received this year surely will be of value to us both now and in the days to come.

While better judgment forbids the telling of realistic records there is no harm to suggest some of the things that usually creep in. We have had fun and lived in clover, though our year has been a lean one. When the time for " Finals " came, we had many sins to answer for. With the end of a sultry summer prospective students are happy to have school open again. Such were we, the now assembled two hundred odd " rats " at the V. M. I. That day, the one ap- pointed to engulf us in a storm for many months, approached at an unheralded speed. The thought did not bother us much; it was to be a day when we should quietly assume new duties at a far off place called Lexington, Virginia. The momentous day on which our numbers entered the Institute our entire perspective of life changed. Definitely we were not what we had been cracked up to be. " Rats " one usually called them; dumb little things that always seem to be in the way. That ' s how they explained us — we who had been graduated three months before with high honors. Oh high school, how good you seemed to us then ! The memories of that fir st assembly in military formation! " BattaHon, ' ten-SHUN. " The entire corps was quiet. Every cadet was standing erect, face to the front and thumbs along the black seams. We were another picture, twist- ing and squirming and wondering what had hap- pened. The setting was a beautiful one with long straight lines of cadets. We were the mk blot on a page of white. Plagued with the unpleasant, raspmg earful, " finn out, misto! " we began our classes. The time passed quickly. Many sleepless nights were spent wondering how badly we had hurt the " thirds ' feelings over some small, trivial matter. Making an appearance at Parade and singing " The Spirit " with gusto at the first football game were taken in one stride. The pleasant surprises of the opening dances faded into our first case of stage fright as we marched through the streets of Richmond and passed in review at the City Stadium. The glorious victory over " Tech " was a feather to be worn rakishly during the three short days of freedom. The long enforced quietude of our year was passing. The brief respite of the Christmas Fur- lough served to light the fuse. The explosion was to come. Exams! We went at them with a flying leap. None wanted to be left by the wayside. Finally, the terrible nightmares ended. Life took on a different aspect. Our brotherhood was older and we felt that tremendously. As the greenish hue began to hem the parade ground, our thoughts wandered back to the pitfalls of our earlier days. Remember, " brother rats, " the day we tugged our bags into Washington Arch, sharply cut a corner — and woke up three weeks later. The many trips to the Q. M. D., the torch- light parades, and the vague something known as garrison review at Homecoming are but memories serving to disrupt more unpleasant thoughts. Those midnight jaunts known as " shirt tailers " helped break the monotony, too. May these little things that seem so insignificant now be always etched in our hearts. The Pied Piper had but a few more mournful notes to blow, for his followers were blessed with a wonderful fate. Out of the " line " in mid-May. The early graduation of the First Class was re- sponsible. Though we were sorry to see our " dikes ' take their leave, their early departure assured many privileges that would not have been received until sultry June. As the traveler who has at last reached the summit of a far-off mountain stops to look back over the tortuous journey, we now pause to view the trip we have made these last nine months. Nine months! Where have they gone? Indeed, they have passed rapidly. They have been good months, filled with adventure and reverses. May we as- semble at the V. M. I. for another and more nine months to live in the perfect harmony of our flower- ing friendships. 03 o CO ; I ' I li I !l i a Anticipation . . Realization . . SyncK ation . . Relaxation . .

Its members, taken from the officers of the three upper classes and three additional men from the First Class, deal with actions pertaining to the honor of any single cadet or any action that might reflect on the honor of the Corps. It has upheld these standards for over a century and every cadet is an enforcer of its lava ' s. The General Committee The General Committee is an organization formed by the Corps of Cadets to enforce class privileges and to help govern the conduct of the Corps as a whole. Its members are taken from all of the upper class officers and several members appointed from the first class. This year the General Committee has functioned extremely well and has been ably guided by its officers.

Five times a year the Hall is beautifully decorated, and lovely girls from all sections of the country throng to Lexington for the week-end to dance to the music of the nation ' s leading or- chestras. The Hop Committee of 1942 began the year under a decided handicap, caused by a heavy debt which was left by the preceding committee, and the outlook for the future was indeed dim. By means of excellent cooperation from the Corps and the able leadership of Everett King the committee has paid off the standing debt and will leave the ' 43 Committee a clear slate to start their year on, a rare gift, and one which will be appreciated when the work begins. Due to the present national crisis the hop program was severely curbed dur- mg the last half of the term, the V. M. I. Commanders were selected to play for the Mid- Winter Dances. S S S As mz VIRGINIA MILITARY INSTITUTE Officers of the Guard All of us have heard the familiar quotation: " Full many a flower is born to blush unseen and waste its sweetness on the desert air. " The same may be said of the " stripeless legion, " that group of ungarnished sleeves, who, though undoubtedly having many a military genius hidden among their midst, have remained in the ranks as privates of the First Class. It is a group that composes the O. G. ' s Association. As the name suggests, the O. G. ' s Association concerns itself mainly with the guard teams, the Officers of the Guard being the first class privates of the corps. As every cadet knows, the guard ratings depend largely upon the Officer of the Guard, that red-sashed individual who guides the guard team faithfully through fires, bombs, and shirt-tail parades. But it is not only with the guard teams that the O. G. ' s Association has to deal. Its mem- bers make up the First Class privates of the companies, fill the third ranks of the third pla- toons, and are responsible in keeping the military standards high and in preserving the tra- ditions and privileges which have been built up in the corps. The Association met early in the year and elected genial, likable Joe Edens as their president for the year. Joe has served well on the General Committee and the Honor Court, and has shown himself well and capable of being the leader of one of the largest organized groups in barracks. In keeping with the annual custom, an O. G. ' s Association banquet was held in the Spring. It was indeed a mem.orable occasion, with the usual toasts, speakers from the association, and a lively floor show, the main price of admission being clean sleeves. The Second ClassFinance Committee The most mercenary men m barracks, including the " Syndi- cate, " — sowers of woe and harvest- ers of shekels every Friday night — biggest pests on or before May 15 — descendants of Satan more feared than their forefather. The Second Class Finance Committee serves two important functions in the corps. First they take all of your money, then they sink it in hops. Maga- zines, Christmas cards, newspapers, flowers, calendars, even mess jackets and paletots contrib- ute their share to the coffers of the Finance Committee. Headed by Jeffery G. Smith, the Finance Committee has helped in the backing of hops during the current school year as well as building up a financial foundation for the next year ' s social events. All profits picked up by the sales conducted in barracks go into a common fund to be used in promoting the dances during the first class year. The Committee has functioned smoothly and efficiently under the management of Smith and Emory. Starting out from scratch at the first of the year, they have concentrated on making the most money the least spent. The balance carried forward from the second class year to the first class year will ably back the undertakings of the Finance Committee as they take over the Hop Committee duties next year. s N S S N S As S S S S S , m2 VIRGINIA MILITARY INSTITUTE The V. M. I. Commanders Menk Business Manager When passing J. M. Hall any night after supper there can be heard a succession of discordant sounds that suddenly blend into a fine rendition of one of the season ' s popular tunes. The Commanders are prac- tising. Long one of the best college orchestras m the South, the Commanders continued to improve this year, taking up the slack caused by the loss of such men as Ed Hensley, Clem Booker, and Moon Mullen much earlier than have previous organizations and sending their reputation beyond the bounds of the State. New faces were inevitable as always, and Bill Mullen, a misto, took his brother Moon Mullen ' s place while Mad Jack Thacker returned to school and replaced Clem Booker. A shortage of material in the drums and sax section caused recruiting of three excellent players from Washington and Lee, McClure, an old Commanders favorite on the drums, and Baker and Bell with the saxophones. Slappy Miller took over Hoover ' s bass fiddle very smoothly. The rest of the organization was a holdover and with Burt Menk operating as business manager and Tommy Atkins directing, the orchestra filled an endless string of engagements, both in the State and in adjacent states. Highlight of the year was playing for the Midwinter Hops as well as for all the regular First Class Hops. Featuring Bosh Pritchard as the vocalist and swinging out in their distinctive style, the Commanders made an impression at these dances that but few " name " orchestras could make.

Moore Business Manager Rawls Drake Porter Williams Sporl Staff: ESSER Crafton Williams Hooker S S s s s s s N N S mz VIRGINIA MILITARY INSTITUTE The Turn-Out For a number of years it was felt that there existed a great gap in the literary field at the Institute. The Cadet, the newspap er of the Corps, covered the field of straight news, and the BoMB, the yearbook, covered the field of class history, but there existed a great middle ground uncov- ered by either of these publications — the realm of the feature articles, the short stories, the poems and the cartoons. Here the would-be authors, poets, and artists in barracks could find room to express themselves and here the Corps could find entertainment. Too, the friends and the Alumni could see what the cadets were doing, saying, and thinking. It was to satisfy this demand that a small group met in the spring of ' 39 and the Turn-Out was born. All throughout ' 40, ' 41, and ' 42 an interested few have worked and worked hard to give V. M. I. a magazine worthy of the school. The road has not been an easy one and there have been times when the grim spectre of failure has stared them in the face. Gradually through experience and mistakes they have fought their way clear of the experi- mental stage and the Turn-Out is now well established. This year, under the able direction of Eddie Young, this junior member of the group of V. M. I. publications, has acquitted itself so well that it can truly be said to have become representative of the Corps. Winter Business Manage: t ' ; . H. F The Glee Club Williams President The present V. M. I. Glee Club was organized in I 937 by Mrs. M. G. Ramey, its chief purpose being to enable those lovers of singing among the corps to gather and vocalize their art. Since that time the club has grown in size, its mem- bership for the present year being around seventy. The Glee Club gives concerts at various times in the year, the most notable of these being the singing of Christmas carols in the courtyard at taps the night before the corps leaves on Christmas furlough. Other occasions are at Easters, Finals, and for special ceremonies in J. M. Hall such as the memorial services held this year for Lt. G. B. J. Handy, ' 40. At these concerts the programs range from arrangements of light popular music to the semi- classical and the classical. When Mrs. Ramey left V. M. I. last year the Glee Club was left without a director, and even the more optimistic members saw disbandment lurking in the future. Fortunately, in the return of Maj. H. N. Dillard to the Institute, the Glee Club found a very able direc- tor, and one who has worked hard to turn out one of the finest clubs seen during our four years at V. M. I. The club elected its own officers early in the school year, selecting as pres- ident A. G. Williams, from Suffolk, Virginia, and S. J. Gillespie as vice-president. Adequate proof in the singing ability of this year ' s Glee Club is the fact that many mvitations were received to sing in different cities throughout Virginia, and at several neigh- boring girl ' s schools.

To offset such disappomtments as the seven-point defeat by the Army, and the first loss to Virginia since Pooley Hubert ' s arrival at the Institute, the Keydets concluded the season with a glorious 15-10 victory over V.

Williams Catlett Pritchard Markin Skladanv Ellington The Coaching Staff V. M. I. is fortunate in having one of the most capable and well- rounded coaching staffs in the country. Head football coach is Allison T. S. " Pooley " Hubert, former Alabama football ace, and All-Amer- ican. Coach Hubert completed his fifth season with the Fighting Squadron this year and is largely responsible for the high respect which V. M. I. teams command in the State, conference, and even the nation. Assisting Hubert are line coach Carney Laslie, end coach Jimmy Walker, and backfield coach and scout, Russ Cohen. These men have as their job not only the moulding of a cracker-jack football team in the limited time allowed at the Institute, but along with this, the training of athletes in fair play and sportsmanship. Russell Cohen Backfield Coach and Scout Coaches Carney Laslie, Jimmy Walker, and Pooley Hubert During a Tense Moment Against V. P. I.

" Woody " left the Institute after Christmas to go into busi- ness in Richmond, and at present no one has been selected to take his place. Coach Gray had a successful season with the Little Red eleven, winning three out of five scheduled contests, and several good prospects for the ' 42 Squadron were developed.

' s passing trio of Pritchard, Catlett and Muha was fast on the trail of pay dirt (via air) on more than one occasion after the mitial tally in which Catlett plunged over for the score. But the telling effects of a hot sun, limited reserves, and short prac- tice sessions prior to the game began to show on the stalwart Big Red, and the Tigers began their feast of " red " meat. V. M. 1 7 Temple 14 0—13 7 0—28 In a game replete with action. Coach Ray Mor- rison ' s offense-minded Temple machine put the skids under a fighting and versatile V. M. I. Squadron in Philadelphia. Throwing defense to the winds, both teams engaged in four quarters of concentrated of- fensive tactics which shifted the pigskin from one goal line to the other, and which kept the entire stands in an uproar for sixty minutes. The Keydets were hampered by a mighty Temple back named " Handy Andy " Tomasic whom they later voted the outstanding backfield opponent of the season. V. M. 1 7 6 7—20 Army 7 7 13 0—27 The old Army mule had his pants scared off in the final period of the game at West Point, when the Keydets closed up a twenty-point margin to come within seven points of tying the " Brave Old Army Team. " Pritchard furnished the longest run of the contest in the fourth period when he ran seventy-six yards for a V. M. I. tally. The Army forward wall from tackle to tackle, was impenetrable as far as the Squadron was concerned, and all of the Keydet gains were made either through the air or around the tackles and ends. On the other hand the major- ity of Army plays which had the most effect, came through the V. M. I. line. V. M. 1 7—7 Virginia .... 7 7 13—27 Virginia ' s much-publicized Bill Dudley was ren- dered ineffective on the offensive, but the Cavaliers had a field day in dishing out their 27-7 defeat to the Keydets. The fabulous " X " formation was used to its fullest advantage, but when the Keydets went down it was more the result of a flashy passing attack and several costly fumbles. Pritchard, commg out of the hospital where he had been confined with a temperature, played a bang-up game for the Big Red team and outpointed Dud- ley in the " yards-gained " department. It was Virginia ' s day, however, and in the clos- ing quarter of the game, their laurels were not threatened. Clark " d Slfladan come up to meet Mun- hall (U. Va.) V. M. I. . .

Behind the power- house running attack of Jolting Joe Muha, the Key- dets matched the passing attack, based on the notor- ious Virginia flanker plays, with a Hubert-devised defense which prevented all but one touchdown from the Richmond crew. Blocked punts in the shadow of the Richmond goal line were converted by Muha and Bosh Pritchard into rallies in the first and third periods.

It was Mike Ducko, V. M. I. ' s battering end, who blocked the two punts which in turn led to Keydet scores. On three occasions Muha carried the leather for V. M. I. touchdowns, Bosh Pritchard accounting for the fourth. The stiff Richmond resistance was not looked for, but once faced with it, the Keydet de- fense was quickly adapted and the Big Red moved in for the kill. V. M. I. . Davidson 6 7—13 7—7 A scrappy band of Wildcats from Davidson Col- lege went all-out to win against the Fighting Squad- ron, but they forgot to consult Lady Luck before game time and that fickle lady smiled on the Keydets long enough for the Squadron to triumph over the Carolina squad by six points. Little Davey Spencer was the spark plug of the Davidson attack which piled up 2 1 6 yards from scrimmage before the wet and soggy field began to take its toll on the vaunted Carolina passing attack, which backfired into one Keydet touchdown, and then nearly pulled the game out of the fire in the fourth. Muha ' s interception of a Wildcat pass in the second period was the firing pin for a ninety-yard run which resulted in the first score of the game. Duke Ellington ' s block of a Car- olina kick in the final period set up the winning tally and Bosh Pritchard stepped off fifteen yards for the goal, strewing Davidson men in his wake. V.

Bosh Pritchard broke the ice with a beautiful thirty-five-yard punt returned for the first score and then followed this up with a perfect aerial bomb-shell from the Maryland forty-five that Joe Muha juggled briefly, then drew in and raced over for the second score.

For three periods the Big Red fought the Hurricanes who represented the finest eleven ever to play for the Florida school. With fifty-six seconds remaining in the ball game, Miami ' s ball on the V. M. I. twelve-yard line, the Hurricanes at- tempted to pierce the V. M. I. de- fense for three plays with little suc- cess.

VMI Downs Tech A i GREAT KICKING BY PRITCHARD HELPS KEYDEIS Muha Scores Winning Touchdown in 4th Pe- riod of Thriller By CAWTHON BOWEN Times Sports Editor MUNICIPAL STADIUM, LYNCH- BURG, Nov. 20 —Out of the chaotic depths of a bloody schedule, a Vir- ginia Military Institute team rose to its greatest peak of the season here this Thanksgiving afternoon to outscore Virginia Tech. 15 to 10. in one of the most exciting games in this long and colorful rivalry. 19,000 Watch Game A crowd of just under 19,000 per- sons . :at in an occasional drizzle liere in the strange surroundings of the Hill City stadium, substi- tuting for Roanoke as the site of this Military Classic of the South until the Magic City ' s stadium is finished in 1942, and saw V. M. I. turn an otherwise unimpressive sea- son into a resounding success. Vic- tory In this ball game can and has done that for both sides many, many times before. This throng, exceedingly well be- haved, saw the Keydets come back with an impres.sive display in the second half after Tech ' s hard-hit- ting Gobblers had apparently got- ten the play under control during the second period. V. M. I. had gone off the field alter the first two periods tired and apparently fading fast. But they came back as though they ' d had a week ' s rest and had listened to the most stir- ring of pep talks. Big Joe Muha, a particularly ef- fective giant on defen.se today, .smashed three times from two xavds out in the loyrth. period to carry o er the winning .six points. But behinfl these three vicious charges Into the desperate and battling Techs, lay a story of unparalleled kicking by Bosh Pritchavd, some stirring line play by the out-manned Squadron forwards, and about as jarring and heart-tirgling a foot- ball game as has been played in these parts in many days. Pritchard ' s Great Kicks Three straight kicks by " Pritchard. two out on the five and the third on the four, kept Tech on it haunches in the first period until the Keydets scored. A perfectly executed reverse which Charley Parkins, an end, carried around the right- flank for 11 yards and a touchdown, climaxed this mag- nificent lx)oting exhibition. Not a hand was laid on him and Muha ' s placement put VMI ahead, 7 to 0. Tech showed its mettle by com- ing back to deadlock the ' count and then, on a breath-taking field goal from the 43-yar«l line by The three seniors. Captain Nel- son Catlett, Barney Skladany and Bosh Pritchard, furnished the m- spiration for the most glorious day of football action of the 1941 sea- son as the Fighting Squadron rolled over the Tech Gobblers from V. P. I. for the third time in as many years, in the annual " Mil- itary Classic of the South, " by a 15-10 score. Overcoming a 10-7 Tech lead at the half, the Keydets came back in the last period with all the fight- ing spirit that " Papa Pooley " could inspire in a team which was already keyed to top pitch to maintain the record of the three seniors: that of never having tasted defeat at the hands of a V. P. I. eleven. Following the traditional re- views of the two corps (500 Key- dets and 2,600 Techmen) Bosh Pritchard took the limelight with three spot kicks within the V. P. I. five-yard stripe, to set up the in- itial score of the game. A decep- tive pass from Nelson Catlett to The corps during one of the more hectic moments — favorable lo V. M. I. it seems I ' V. p. I.

Tech came back m the second quarter with a sus- tained drive which finally ended with senior Bill James crossing into pay-dirt and junior Roger Mc- Clure making the placement. McClure, V. P. I. ' s sensational hooter, gave proof of his title by giving the Techmen a three-point lead, seconds before the end of the first half with a beautifully executed place kick, which traveled fifty-one yards through the V.

The try for the extra point was blocked. ° SeS- . V e " ■ ' ■ " " cj —e Pritchard ' s punting, which set up the Squadron ' s touchdowns, was undoubtedly the finest individual performance of the day. His uncanny ability to boot the ball outside the five-yard line was all the most ardent fan could ask for.

As an appreciation for his defensive work, he received a gold wrist watch from the Athletic Asso- ciation. Captain Nelson Catlett played his usual con- sistent game . . . knocking down potential Tech touchdown-passes, smearing runners, carrying the ball for plus yardage on every occasion ... to say nothing about his leadership qualities which were necessary for the victory.

The Wall, Mclnlyr Tl ' 0 m ' -Vf Vrff x j Cadets swarm over the floor after the Squadron-Rich- mond game The loss of two of the finest basketeers ever to perform for the Red, White, and Yellow was a hard blow for Coach Jimmy Walker to take in start- ing the 1942 basketball season, but after the initial practices got under way, the former Alabama ace found that he had another brace of netmen who could compare favorably with any in the Southern Conference. Ross Walker, playing his first year of varsity ball, and veteran Emil Sotnyk, tournament star last year, filled the vacancies left by the gradua- tion of forward Eddie Stumpf and guard-captain Bob Foster. Sotnyk, who easily placed on the A. P. Tournament Team last year, could hardly be said to have filled a vacancy, since he was a mamstay on the ' 41 team, but with the absence of Stumpf and Foster this year, he was the sparkplug of the ' 42 outfit, as his ten-point average for the sixteen games proves. A win-lose record of seven games won to eleven lost fails to show the true ability of the 1 942 basket- ball squad. The team averaged 39.5 points for eighteen games, while their opponents racked up a 40.3 average. Last year ' s tournament team had a season scoring average of 38.7 points to the op- ponents ' 35.7. Sotnyk ' s inability to play in two of this season ' s contests might have had some bearing on the final standings. Coach Walker had a good opportunity to look over his material in the opening game with an out- classed Bridgewater College quintet which lost to the Keydets by a 67-3 1 count. Steele Mclntyre, substitute forward who led the rat basketeers in scor- ing last year, led the scoring with 1 6 points. Using every man on his squad. Walker should have been well pleased with his team. Meeting the William and Mary Indians in their first conference game the Keydets met some stiff com- petition in lanky Glenn Knox, Indian center who chalked up 24 of his teams ' 47 pointers in the 47-42 contest. The Big Red outfit played well, and the half-time score of 24-22 showed how close the Key- dets could match what turned out to be the State champions. The third game of the season was one of the fastest and most thrilling of the entire schedule as the Keydets met the Duke Blue Devils in Lynchburg. The quintet of Jack Woodward and Gordon Smith at forwards, Dick Williams at center, and Ross Walker and Emil Sotnyk at guards moved like a well-oiled machine during the forty-minute span against the Southern Conference champs. Half-time score read 20-19 in the Keydets ' favor but the final score stood 52-47 against them. Richmond University was the first conference team to fall prey to the V. M. I. floormen and they went down by a 57-36 margin. Following the Rich- mond victory the Keydets met the University of Vir- ginia five in Lexington and bowed 27-21. The Vir- ginia men took the lead from the start and main- tained it for the entire game. Joe Shomo and Sotnyk Emil Sotnyk (Captain-elect) Jack Woodward ViNCE Thomas Gordon Smith Ross Walker Steele McIntyre GoMER Ward Jim Irwin led the V. M. I. scoring but Dick Wiltshire was a little too much to handle. The University of North Carolina and Wake Forest took the Keydets in hand in the next two con- tests which were played in the Tar Heel State. The Tar Heels did a thorough job in trouncing the V. M. I. quintet, but the Deacons won only after a hard fight by a 44-43 count. Maryland University, playing a rough brand of basketball, was the next to fall under the Keydet attack ; then came Wake Forest in a return engage- ment, which they won much more decisively than the first. This contest ended in a 64-34 score, the biggest mauling the Keydets took all season. Sotnyk did not play in this game as he was in the hospital. Two games against the Techmen of V. P. I. were next on the schedule. In the first, with Sotnyk still in the hospital, V. M. I. went under by a two- point margin. But in the second they came back and won by one point; 43-42. The fact that the games Ross Walker racks up two points on a per- fect lay-in shot against Richmond ' s Spiders A wild scramble results from Kexjdet scoring attempt that failed to connect were played in Blacksburg and Lexington respective- ly may have had some bearing on the outcome. The second William and Mary game which fol- lowed a win over Furman and a loss to Richmond featured another one-man performance by Knox. V. M. I. led the Indians for the entire first half which ended 23-19. When it looked as if the Key- dets had another game for their creel, Knox swished through a pair of field goals which gave the Indians the advantage. Then in a whirlwind climax the Indians came out on top, 33-32. Two sweet victories followed the William and Mary game. The first came in the second meeting with Virginia in Charlottesville. The Keydets, be- hind Emil Sotnyk, took charge from the beginning and by the end of the contest had the Cavaliers run- ning in circles. Sotnyk and Walker teamed up to avenge the former defeat at the hands of the Vir- ginians, and netted 32 points. Vince Thomas also had a big night with eleven points. George Washington, newcomer to the Southern Conference, and big gun this season, was the next victim of the Walkermen. TTiomas ' foul shot in the last minutes of play gave the Keydets the one- point advantage which the Col- onials couldn ' t reach, and which resulted in a 36-35 win. In a trip northward, the Key- dets closed the season by losing to Maryland and George Washing- ton. V. M. V . M. V. M. V. M. V. M. V. M. V. M. V. M.

Of their eight matches the team won five while losing three, and along with this, they managed to capture the runner- up spot in the Southern Conference tournament. Handicapped from the start by the loss of Coach Sam Barnes who enlisted in the Navy, the team was very fortunate in securing the services of Chick Woodward and was able to continue the season without interruption. Woodward, captain of the 1928 team at the Institute, did an exceptionally fine job in his first year of coaching. First rom: Dillard.

Reeves, Haskins With a nucleus of six lettermen to build around, the team developed quickly and turned in a 16-14 victory over North Carolina in the initial match. This same Carolina team went on to nose out the Keydets for the Conference championship after Jack McGrath, star V. M. I. 128-pounder, failed to enter the tournament. In the match with Carolina Jack Dillard, veteran 1 21 -pounder, started the match off with a decision and was closely followed by Jack McGrath who registered a fall in the 128-pound class. The Keydets then lost decisions in the next two matches and lost by a fall in the 155-pound class. Captain Jim Wilson, dependable 165- pounder, then came through with a decision to tie the score. V. M. I. surged into the lead when Jim Dorrier pinned the Carolina 1 75-pounder. Carolina went on to earn a decision in the heavyweight match to make the score V. M. I. 16, U. N. C. 14. Immediately following the Carolina match the Keydets met a strong Kansas State team and scored a surprising 20-10 victory over the Mid- Westerners. Jack Dillard and Steifer broke even in the opener but V. M. I. took the lead when Jack McGrath pinned the Kansas 128-pounder. McCullough then turned in a decision in the 136-pound class and Ed- wards and Varrock drew in the 145-pound class. Leroy Roper decisioned Townsend and Jim Wilson pinned Brecheisen in the 165-pound class. Kansas State took the next two matches when their 1 75- pounder and heavyweight turned in decisions over Dorrier and Marks. The final score was V. M. I. 20, Kansas State 10. Following the two hard matches the Keydets reached a comparative breather in their match with the Tech Gobblers. Able for the first time to use some of the second string. Chick Woodward ran in Sterling Edwards Jim Dorrier 145 lb. 175 lb. Soulher , Confer ence Champions four newcomers in the varsity line-up. It has been the custom on the V. M. I. wrestling squad to use the new men as much as possible both to give them experience and also a chance to earn their mono- grams. The difference between the first and second ranking man in a certain class, however, is generally little more than a toss-up. Jack Dillard lost a close decision in the opener but the score was evened up when Mahone turned in a decision in the 128-pound class. McCullough, Sherrard, McCord, and Gran- ger then went on to gain decisions in quick succession. Tech however took the last two bouts when Hill turned in a decision over Demmler and Ed Painter pinned Charley Marks. Hie final score stood V. M. I., 15, V. P. I. II. The Keydets next extended their string of victories by downing Davidson by a score of 22-6. Coach Woodward again used some of his new men and as in the Tech match they turned in fine performances. Spencer started the day off with a decision in the 121 -pound class. Mahone followed with a decision and McCullough won by a fall. Sherrard then turned in a decision in the 145-pound class and Mc- Cord took the next match by a fall. Granger lost a close decision in the 165-pound class but Demmler turned in a win in the light-heavyweight match. Da- vidson took the final bout when Captain Ed Hipp decisioned Jim Dorrier. Following this match the Keydets took to the road for a trip into Pennsylvania and it was here that their string of victories was broken. On successive even- ings the V. M. I. wrestlers took on two of the East ' s strongest teams in Lehigh and Franklin and Mar- shall. Against Lehigh the Keydets lost by a score of 1 5-9. Jack Dillard opened the scoring with a decision in the 1 2 1 -pound class but Lehigh overcame this lead by gaining decisions in the next three matches in quick succession. V. M. I. pulled up even, however, when Leroy Roper and Jim Wilson took the next two bouts by decision. With the score standing at nine all, victory was in sight, but the superiority of the Northerners in the heavier weights was evident when they turned in ' , victories in the next two matches making the final score V. M. I. 9, Lehigh 15. The following night the Keydet grap- plers encountered the year ' s toughest foe in Franklin and Marshall, a team who has run " HHI up a remarkable string of forty-seven vic- Bp tones over a period of years. The results of the match clearly showed the superiority of the favorites when they turned in a 29-3 victory. The only Keydet to score a victory was Sterling Edwards who gained a de- cision in the 1 45-pound class. Of the other seven matches Franklin and Marshall won DlLLARD Mahone McGbath (Caplain-Elecl) McCuLLOUGH Roper McCoRD Marks four by fall and three by decision. McGrath, Wil- son, and Dorrier lost close decisions while Dillard, McCullough, Roper, and Demmler lost by the fall route. In their last conference match the Keydets scored an overwhelming 3 1 -3 victory over the Duke Blue Devils. Spencer, McGrath, and Dorrier won by falls while McCullough and Roper gained decisions. Mc- Cord and Demmler gained defaults when Duke was unable to make entries in these two classes. Duke ' s only victory came in the 1 28-pound class when Rich- ardson nosed out Dillard. The final score of 31-3 was evidence of the superiority of the Keydets. In their last match of the season the Keydets lost to a strong Navy team by a score of 19-9. After starting off with a victory in the 1 2 1 -pound class the Keydets dropped the next two and then again surged ahead by gaining decisions in the 145- and 155- pound classes. Captain Bill Carmichael, runner-up in the Eastern Intercollegiate Tournament last year, pinned Jim Wilson to give his team a lead which was never threatened by the Keydets. Dorrier dropped a decision to Emerson in the I 75-pound class and Mc- Cord, 1 55-pounder wrestling at a forty-pound weight disadvantage, lost by a fall to Swift. Hie final score stood Navy 19, V. M. I. 9. The Keydet grapplers turned in a fine perform- ance in the Southern Conference Tournament held in Greensboro and emerged in second place trailing a well-balanced Tar Heel team by two points. The Keydet matmen, using only seven men, turned out three conference champions, one runner-up, and one third-place winner. In all the V. M. I. wrestlers amassed a total of twenty-eight points, six for each of the first places, four for the runner-up, two for the third place, and a point for each of the four falls registered in the preliminary bouts. Jack Dillard had the misfortune of meeting V. P. I. ' s McCarthy in his opening bout ; McCarthy later went on to win the championship. The next Keydet points came in the 145-pound class where Sterling Edwards annexed the title after disposing of Duke ' s Gulledge and Carolina ' s Devant. In the 1 55-pound class the Key- dets produced a runner-up in Leroy Roper who lost a close decision to Carolina ' s Sam Mordecai after disposing of his two preliminary opponents by falls. Jim Wilson, V. M. I. captain, captured the 1 65- pound title by beating Carolina ' s Frank Mordecai. Wilson had pinned his opponents in the preliminary bouts. In the 175-pound class V. M. I. produced another champion in Jim Dorrier who neatly de- cisioned two preliminary opponents and then went on to decision Duke ' s Huffman in the championship match. The services of Jack Dillard, John McCullough, and of the three champions. Sterling Edwards, Cap- tain Jim Wilson, and Jim Dorrier will be sorely missed next year but with Captain-elect Jack Mc- Grath as well as six other lettermen, Spencer, Mc- Cord, Mahone, Sherrard, Roper, and Demmler re- turning the prospects for a winning team next year are bright. ■f ' -M- Around The Track SCHEDULE V. M. I William and Mary. - Here V. M. I Virginia There V. M. I Maryland There V. M. I V. P. I Here V. M. I Richmond There State Meet Charlottesville Southern Conference Meet Durham For the first time since Merrill Pasco burned the tracks for V. M. I., Colonel Son Read has let a broad smile creep over his face whenever the track team v ' as mentioned. His 1942 team was one of the best-balanced ever to win, place, and show for the Big Red. At the top of the list, of course, came Captain Charlie Chewning, distance runner extraordinary. Not a great runner four years ago, Charlie worked along with the Colonel and last year blossomed out in all his glory as one of the state ' s best milers. This season he is the best and defies the laws of nature by doubling successfully in the two-mile when needed. Gene Kelley has also been impres- sive in the mile while Dolph Tauskey has been effective in the longer race. Probably the brightest spot for the season, however, was the fine perform- ance of the third classmen. Galliford, not even a regular as a rat last season, has developed into a star for the dashes, being especially hot in the 220 where indications are that he may break some records before his three years are up. For the first time in many years the field events have become a strong point with Easterly turning in consistendy fine performances in the high and broad jumps; Sherrard and Roper showing signs of eclipsing Galliford by breaking records Col.

In the broad jump, also, Wasdell has been impressive. To back up and bolster these new stars have been a bevy of veterans. Meriwether Jones set a stiff pace in the 880 throughout to become a sure win or place; McClure, closely pressed by Johnson, held up his end of the 440; Jack Wright, last year ' s Cinderella man, fought it out with Galliford; Billy Romm continued to give ever-improving performances in the hurdles; Joe Muha, in addition to the shot put and discus, be- came the No. 1 man on the javelin; and Warren Pike backed up Roper and Sherrard in the pole vault. Despite the loss of Chewning, Jones, and Wright, the Colonel should retain that smile next year. PooLEY Hubert Coach Lloyd Stallings Manager SCHEDULE April 4 — V. M.

L has found this to be painfully true. The remaining twenty-five per cent is twenty-five per cent perfect on Alumni field this season, perhaps the best-balanced team in Virginia if one outstandmg pitcher were around to help shoulder the burden being upheld by Hogan and Spessard. As usual, the diamond squad started off with insufficient practice before the season began but individual conditioning had the team in pretty good shape and batting eyes were remarkably sharp when the first game rolled round. Though missing the batting power of ' 41 Captain Frank Carney, the Keydets have picked up Johnny Stevens from last year ' s rat team and he packs dynamite to the plate as well as playing a nifty center field. Flanking him were Duke Ellington and Willoughby Williams, both of whom have found a punch that was sadly lacking in ' 41. Lloyd Leech and Emil Sotnyk formed a capable reserve in the outer garden. Virginia ' s best infield took their places with Ralph Jones on the initial sack, Dick Williams and Captain ron.: Slevens. Spessard. R. P. Williams. Wray. Captain; Jones, R. W.

Behind the plate, Nellie Catlett, acclaimed as one of the best backstops ever to flash a signal on Alumni field, held forth. On the mound Earl Hogan and Rutherford Spessard, both veterans, drew the call. Hogan continued to im- prove with a repertoire consisting of a neat curve and fast ball while Spessard relied upon a baffling side-arm delivery. Coach Pooley Hubert stands to lose a battery, three-quarters of his infield and two outer gardeners next season, but he is looking toward the future by having several promising rats work out with the varsity in the absence of any rat baseball this season. Two pitchers, Coleman and Tinsley, are especially fine prospects, but infield replacements are not yet forthcoming. Cross Country Charles Chewning RESUME With Captain Charlie Chewning and Dolph Tauskey pac- ing the squad, the Big Red cross-country team went through the 1 94 1 season with a perfect record in state competition in the finale. The Squadron opened the season with a win over the William and Mary Indians, Chewning winning easily. Vir- ginia ' s Cavaliers were next to fall, followed by an indepen- dent Roanoke team. Chewning and the Squadron took first in the state meet, and followed with a fourth place in the conference race. RESULTS V. M. 1 17; William and Mary 46 V. M. 1 20; Virginia 38 V.

Wilkins was the indi- vidual star of the mermen throughout the year. Specializing in the 50- and 100-yard dashes, Wilkins equalled the state record m the 50-yard event and set a new pool record at Williamsburg during the year. In the relay events, Wilkins was a valuable member of Coach Walter Lowry ' s squad. But Wilkms was not the only able member of the swimmmg squad, as the results show. Langstaff Johnston, a second classman ineligible last year, helped pile up the place points in the free-style events and the back stroke event. Joe Perkins, back stroke specialist, annexed his share of the points in all the meets the Keydets participated in. Eddie English and Blinn Rush, two newcomers to the squad were valuable members of the tank squad, as were J. F. R. Scott, and Bob Lewis. Lewis led the distance men throughout the season. Holding down the diving events were Bob Sherrard and Allen Potts, new cap- tain of the mermen. Potts also swam the breast stroke event for the Keydets. Next year the Big Red tankmen will lose Lewis, Wilkins, and Perkins. Besides the loss of three very valuable team members, the squad will suffer from the loss of Coach Lowry, who is leaving V. M. I. He is the second coach lost during the year, Jimmie Walker, end coach and head basketball coach, being the first to leave. Firsl row: Halscy, Polls, Whitmore, Wyall, Lewis. Rush Johnston.

B. D. Mayo, V. M. I. ' s golf team once agam enjoyed a successful season, although several of the matches scheduled were cancelled because of the curtailment of the spnng sports program. Captain and number one divot-digger was Chester Drake, another of the seemingly endless string of Texas links fans. Drake, one of the most enthusiastic golfers at the Institute, helped organize the first golf team that the Institute put on the fairways. This year, in the position of manager and captain, Drake helped keep -Southern Conference Tournament, Winston-Salem, N. C. the squad functioning after most of its activities had been cut out. Playing with Drake was another Texas links fan, Pete Rice. Rice was one of the top golfers of the squad this year and turned in good scores in all matches. Besides Drake and Rice, sev- eral other pellet chasers adorned the Lexington golf course nearly every day in an effort to improve their game. John McCullough, Jim Hull, Jack Parrish, and Dick Catlett all worked hard in an effort to duplicate Virginia ' s own hillbilly " Slammin ' Sam- my " Snead. Pistol Under the able tutelage of Major Basil P. Cooper, and cap- tained by Cadet Jack Hughes, V. M. I. ' s pistol team has fired several matches with excellent results. Little has been said about those who spend their time down under the old Library plunking away at a black bull ' s-eye, but a look at the targets tells all that should be told. One of the apparent reasons for the many pistol marksmanship medals brought back from camp, the pistol team is also another cause of the high rating given to the Institute grad- uates in the Army today. Rifle Captained by H. L. Harris, the varsity rifle team competed in three shoulder to shoulder matches this year, along with several mail meets. A running start was made when the team outpointed Navy at Annapolis. In the second match, the cadets placed sec- ond in a three-way meet with Davidson and North Carolina State. A dual meet with the V. P. I. marksmen gave the Keydets a wm by the score of 1 ,394 to 1 ,372. Individual high scorer of the team was Joe Grant, who won the high scoring trophy, while second place in the trophy competition went to E. H. Malone. . ' ■ v» v. Fencing A far ciy from the old " Gentlemen, choose your weapons, " V. M. I. ' s fencers have still managed to hold their own when it was put up to them as to what they were to duel with. Sabre, foil, or what-have-you, the fencers, led by Benton Kinsolving, have done well against such teams as the William and Mary, South Atlantic champions, the Charlotte Fencing Club, and the University of Virginia. This year the Keydet foilsmen were coached by Captain Fred Kelly whose hard work and diligence helped considerably. Tennis Hardest hit by the spring sports curtailment was the varsity tennis schedule, that saw a cancellation of all its games. Since many of the matches scheduled durmg the spring were with schools that had to travel considerable distance to play, these matches had to be cut out. In order to cut down on expenses for the spring sports, the rest of the schedule was cancelled, thus denying V. M. I. representation on the State tennis courts. Horse Show Captained by Henry Garrett and coached by Col. George Wiltshire, the Horse Show team has taken its place close to the top in minor sports. As before, horses have been chosen from Army mounts at the stable. Competition has been limited by early graduation, but two shows have been entered of which one, the Lynchburg Show, has become one of the finest in Virginia and is the one toward which the team pointed. Henry Garrett and Al Goddin have led a rather inexperienced team to a fine record this season. Polo Apparently in a suicidal frame of mind, members of the " horsey " set descended on the stables one day last fall to sign away their lives for a little innocent sport entitled " Polo. " Ac- cused of permit riding, and a few other things, the malleteers have vindicated themselves somewhat and alleviated their critics by fighting Lt. " Mac " Tabb ' s horseflesh in pursuit of a wooden pellet. Credit goes to them for an honest effort to give the Institute representation among college polo enthusiasts. Hunt Club |Pm PIH| Another of the many groups in barracks de- K voted to the pursuit of anything that pertains to a Hl f horse, the Hunt Club has provided an excellent JHHBI f i opportunity for those who wish to participate in one of the oldest of sport s, the pursuit of the fox. • Although the hunts have been disguised in one — " ■ " way or another so that a fox, or any member of the fox family, was not necessary, the Hunt Club has accomplished its objectives in furnishing a ' " chance for exponents of the hunt to ride to hound, and to the sound of the horn. This year the club was under the leadership of Al Goddin, a Richmonder who has spent his four years at the Institute in close connection with the Hunt. Goddin had the assistance of Col. Heiner, until he was transferred to Fort Bragg, and Lt. F. H. Barksdale, who took over Col. Heiner ' s job as M. F. H. During the year several drag hunts have been held by the club, and twice the club sent representatives to different hunts held in the State. At Richmond, members of the club attended the drag hunt held by the Deep Run Hunt Club, and were widely commended for their riding. The highlight of the season for the hunt clubbers was the live hunt at Warrenton, attend- ed by several members of the second class. With appropriate pomp and ceremony, the hunt was conducted ably, and the club members returned with stories concerning the hunt, and the parties that followed.

' s Little Red Team had a better than average season falling only to William and Mary and the Techlets and scormg vv ' ms over Maryland, Richmond, and Virginia. Coach Woody Gray and his able assistants. Col. Heflin and Jimmy Matthews, developed one of the best rat elevens in the past three years with Dick DeShazo, V. M. I. ' s All-State repre- sentative and captain, sparkmg the team by passing, running and kicking his way through the defenses of the opponents. Also in the backfield were Tommy Winston, Little Joe Black, Al Turriziani, with Doug Pritchard in the reserve. McCullough and Rogers stood out at the end posts by knifing in to block kicks and throw their opponents for a loss. Bandish and Coppedge proved a stumbling block to off-tackle plays, while Skladany and Burruss furnish- ed the interference for many of the long runs. Among the plays to be remembered is DeShazo ' s " bootlegger " in the Maryland game, Pntchard ' s last minute pass to Joe McCullough for the winning tally against the Baby Spid- ers and the pile-driving tackles of Coppedge and Bandish in the Virginia contest. In their annual game with the Gobblers in Roanoke, the Baby Squadron fought nip and tuck all the way. In the first half the V. M. I. attack clicked for a touchdown with Joe Black lugging the leather across, but in the second the attack failed to function and so did the pass defense, offering the Techlets the opportunity to push across two touchdowns and sew up the ball game. ; Pritchard, Coach; Prilchard, Russell, Bandish, Winston, Black, Spilman, Ma Second rom: Bowman, Ford, Burnelt, Smith, Wise, McCullough, Gilmore Rat Basketball V.

In their next contest they staged a come- back and defeated the Massanutten five after a closely contested game. Virginia ' s Baby Wahoos out- pointed the rats to score a win, and Roanoke ' s Jefferson High team won over the visiting Keydets hard- wooders by a slim one point margin. The Little Reds then split their two contests with Greenbrier by losing there and winning here. Next the Techlets decisively defeated the rats at Blacksburg. Jefferson Hi jour- neyed to V. M. I. and the yearling basketeers evened the score, but the Tech freshmen again defeated the rat team in the return game. After a tight contest, the John Marshall squad nosed out the Baby Keydets. In their final contest, the Cavalier freshmen defeated the visiting V. M. I. team. " Little Joe " Black captured the high scoring honors for the season. At the end of the season Black was rewarded by his teammates when they elected him as their captain for his consistent and spirited play- ing throughout their eleven contests. Nine numerals were awarded to the members of the Little Red squad — George Renneman, Joe Black, and Doug Pritchard, forwards; Joe McCullough and Bernie Bandish, centers; and Tommy Wins- ton, Lee Bowman, Bill Russell, and Sarg Wise, guards.

I.. 3; Navy Plebes 29 Again Colonel Heflin produced a winning team from a group of Rats who had had no previous experience. The Baby Keydets won two of their five matches while losmg three, but they nevertheless made an excellent account of themselves in every match. Captain Moyer was the individual star of the team and turned in a record of five victories against no defeats. His record barely overshadowed that of Bo Coppedge, however, who scored four wins against a lone loss. In the opening match of the season the Litde Red grapplers scored a 20-19 victory over a strong Petersburg team. Moyer, Taylor, Whitde, and Coppedge all registered falls for V. M. I. while Peters- burg took the remainder of the matches. The Rats next encountered the Carolina freshmen and it was here they met defeat for the first time. Moyer again won by a fall and was closely followed by Buford who gained a decision, this however ended the V. M. I. scoring until the final bout when Coppedge won a decision. In their third match the team registered an overwhelming 29-5 victory over the Techs. Moyer won by default, Grojean, Sloan, and Coppedge each scored falls while Redwine, Walker, and Robinson took decisions. In their next match the Rats lost to a strong Woodberry Forest team by a score of 22-6. The Keydets were only able to win the first and last bouts. In the final match the Little Red team lost to the Navy Plebes by a score of 29-3 and this time only Moyer was able to break into the win column. The season was a better one than the results indicated, for although they lost more than they won the Rat team produced several men who should bolster next year ' s varsity; they were Moyer, Buford, Walker, and Coppedge. wbtm v ' io»g3 iMwa?jifmi Ea cnfe: ««g- first roll): Gantt, Pritchard, Welles, Adams, Turriziani, Sloan, McCuUough, Read, Hathaway Second row: Mapp, Upshur, Morrison, Buford, Boyle, Newton.

I. last year, this season ' s Little Red track team has brought out its share of would-be stars and made a creditable showing. Typical of V. M. I. track teams, the strength has been concentrated m the running events. Football stars DeShazo, Black, and Pritchard have handled the dashes acceptably while Black also took complete charge of both hurdles, forecasting aid for Billy Romm next sea- son. In the 440 Hathaway led the way but was always closely followed by Mapp. Dick Malmo, the finest runner on the team, dominated the 880 along with Joe Gantt. In the mile Gary Esser and Jimmy Morrison set the pace. Although the weight men upheld their end of the bargain very well, there was a notice- able lack of strength m the jumping events. The slack caused by loss of points here had to be taken up elsewhere. Burruss, Bandish, Coppedge, and Sloan took turns in besting each other in the weights with Dick DeShazo entering the lists in the javelin. Next year should find these men bolstering the varsity in the 880 where Jones will leave a big hole, in the weights, and in the 440, hurdles, and the mile. Flrsl row: Buford.

The first meet, against the Virginia junior Cavaliers, saw the rats win decisively by a score of 24-35, although they did not take the first place in the race. In the State meet, the only other that the rats competed in, place-point totals gave the rats a score of 43, lowest of the meet, and the State freshman cross-country championship. The leading runners of Col. Read ' s freshmen hill and dalers were Dick Malmo and Cary Esser. Against Virginia, Malmo and Esser tied for second place to be the first of the rats to cross the finish line. Sam Hathaway was the third Keydet to finish, and he took fifth place to help the Little Red point total. Then in the State meet, run at Washington and Lee, Malmo took third place to be the first rat to finish, while Esser placed seventh, to be the second member of the Little Red squad to cross the line. Altogether, in the State meet, the Little Red took eight out of the first sixteen places to win the championship. Next year. Col. Read will have several valuable additions to his varsity cross-country from this rat squad. Besides Malmo, Esser, and Hathaway, he will have Bowman, Boyle, Martin, Morrison, Buford, Young, Newton, and Reed. These eleven men will go a long way in replacing Chewning, Ed Jones, and Meriwether Jones. Carney Laslie Director Intramural Sports Lt. Ingle Assistant Dircclor The increased interest shown last semester in intramurals, our most important extra-curricular activity, is very important. It tends to prove that we come to V. M. I. not only to study but to make the most of college and to get what may be termed a well-rounded mental and physical development. The announcement of the standings of the companies, for the first semester, put the Company A cavalrymen in the lead. The closeness of the race makes it one of the most successful ever conducted by the Intramural department. The three leading companies. Company A, Company B, and Company E, were so close that one sport could change the standings of all three companies. The stiff competition, in the sports, has caused a renewal of almost-dead rivalries between several companies. Prob- ably, the most intense rivalry of the semester is between the two ranking teams. Company A and Company B. The cavalrymen have taken four tournament wins, each time edging the infantrymen into second place. B Company can only claim two tournament wins, softball and basketball. The artillerymen of Company E hold the third place bracket with two wins, pistol marksmanship and the inter-battalion football game. The second division is bunched with the close scores of Company D ' s 907.66 pts., of Company F ' s 854.86 pts., and of Company C ' s 833.5 pts.

C. — Heroism beyond the line of duty. Lt. Jeschke ' s platoon was surrounded by two regiments of Japanese infantry who, knowing the platoon to be out of ammuni- tion, stood up yelling insults and making gestures at the beleagured Americans. Lt. Jeschke, in the face of terrific fire, stood up and boned the entire Japanese force for talking and raising hands in ranks. Second Lieutenant Hughes, J. A., U. S. Infantry, D. S. C. — Credited with saving the lives of his battalion at a time when death from starvation seemed imminent. Lt. Hughes saved his daily potato ration and personally cultivated a six-acre patch of potatoes in no man ' s land, tilling the soil assiduously, even while under intense fire. The potato crop realized from his effort fed the troops for two hundred and twenty-six days. Second Lieutenant Goddin, A. P., U. S. F. A., D. S. C. — Heroism above the line of duty. Lt. Goddm, armed only with a riding crop and his face, walked into a Japanese encampment and so frightened the superstitious soldiers that they fell down before him, offermg gifts of rice as a sacrifice to whom they thought was an evil demon. Lt. Goddin ' s platoon then mopped up, as all the fight had been taken out of the Japanese troops. Second Lieutenant Perkins, J. A., U. S. F. A., D. S. C. — Credited with the destruction of several hun- dred Japanese recruits. Lt. Perkins, captured in earlier action, had gained the confidence of the Japanese and was made a physical instructor in swimming at a recruit camp. Lt. Perkins is credited with the drowning of several hun- dred Japanese recruits by his method of " coaching. " He purposely omitted teaching the ignorant troops to " loosen up " before entering the water. Second Lieutenant O ' Keefe, J., Jr., U. S. Cavalry, D. S. C. — Heroism beyond the line of duty. Lt. O ' Keefe, because of his perfect resemblance to a Jap- anese, disguised himself by changing uniforms and gained a position in the office of the paymaster of the Imperial Japanese Navy. By a shrewd method of making short- term loans at a usurous rate of interest with units of the Japanese Heet as security, Lt. O ' Keefe bankrupted the admiralty and gained as his personal property, 4 capital ships, 2 heavy cruisers, 7 light cruisers, 1 6 destroyers, and 3 submarines. Lt. O ' Keefe also foreclosed on the personal rowboat of Admiral Nomura. Vice-Caravan Leader Cury, D., Egyptian Camel Cav- alry — Congressional Medal of Honor — When captured by General Rommel ' s Panzer Division, Lt. Cury lost no time in engaging in a three-hour crap game with his Nazi captors, winning 1 4 tanks, I 8 pieces of medium artillery, 6 Dornier bombers, 10 Messerschmitt " 109 " pursuit planes, and, not one hour later, in a strip-poker round, made Christians of the Germans, leaving them naked and ashamed in the blazing African sun. The complete dis- armament by Lt. Cury so enfeebled the enemy that they were easy prey to the attacking British. Second Lieutenant Jones, T. R., U. S. Jackass Artil- lery, D. S. C. — Heroism beyond the line of duty. In a bitter race for an ammunition dump, with the fate of two thousand troops resting in his charge, Lt. Jones NOSED out the Japanese force and gained the safety of the position. Second Lieutenant Moore, G. E., U. S. F. A., D. S. C. — Heroism far, far, far beyond the line of duty. For personally calling on the fourteen-year-old daughter of the Nipponese commander, and gaining such favor with the enemy that he became familiarly known as " Hon. Brown Dog, " and thereby weening important military information from the enemy, enabling his command to surprise and subdue the Ososmaki garrison. oy, yvho said the Insfii-u e isn ' t a commun ty of cho ors f ? f " HANDSOME- iV ? 6Hn o-fhrr on,- r:,r.

As a consequence he was ex- tremely wary and cautious. As he was passing through a small village the great desire struck. He looked around for a haven and perceived a small country hotel. Rushing into the " lobby " he called nervously to the land- lord, a placid individual of the " Chic Sale " type. " Landlord, landlord, where is it? " Mine host looked at him. grunted, spat, and said. " Down the hall, first to the left, down the stairs, turn right, and straight back. " " Thanks. " Our hero was off like a shot. In a few seconds his voice with a desperate sort of quaver in it. floated up from the depths. " Landlord, landlord, I can ' t find it. " The landlord repeated his directions patiently.

(Patents pending ) THE 1942 BOMB VIRGINIA MILITARY INSTITUTE Lexington, Virginia April 15, 1942 Upon the announcement that the Class of 1942 would graduate on May 15 instead of June 1 7, the publication date of the Bomb was immediately shoved up a month. Naturally, this created many new prob- lems and established an accelerated schedule in order to insure distribution of the book before Finals. Through the splendid cooperation between the staff, the photographer, the editor, and the printer, we have met the schedule. We wish to e.xpress our appreciation to them for the splendid spirit with which they accepted the situation and gave their full support to our goal. We also wish to express our appreciation to Life Magazine, The Richmond Times-Dispaich, and The Roanoke Times for making possible the use of some of their pictures in this book in so generous a manner. Finally, we wish to thank the advertisers whose contributions have gone so far toward making this book possible, for without the advertising revenue it would be impossible to present a book such as this.
