These years under General Milton ' s leadership have been significant ones in VMFs history — years that have produced progress anfl refinements in every area of the Institute ' s ojjeration. But while h is energies have Ijeen dedicated toward the realization of an ever-greater and stronger VMI, General Milton has kept a sensitive finger on the pulse of the Corps. Behind the formidable stars, cadets have found a man sincerely- interested and willing to aid in their personal problems, a man of wise counsel and competent advice. He has been a superintendent of oftentimes astounding knowledge of hundreds of cadets as individuals, genuinely interested in all their activities and proud of their achievements. It is, then, to General Milton, as a token of the esteem which we hold for liim as an officer and friend, that we the Staff respectfully dedicate this 1 !)(!(» volume of I lie V: II Bomu. -MAJOR GENERAL WILLIAM H.

Tlu ' curriculum is aimed at jjroviding the student with the best possible preparation for medical school as well as the fields of teaching, public health and industry. Fully meeting the standards prescribed by the Association of American ledical Colleges and the American Medical Association the success of this department can easily be .seen in the records of its graduates. The staff is highly qualified in many fields and places emphasis on individual instruction wherever possible. Their interest in the .student is surpassed by none.

Reeves, Mr. Arnold SCIENCE HALL The Science Hall, which was formerly the Administration Building, now serves the Biology Department. Its three floors contain modern laboratories, classrooms and lecture rooms in addition to a lilirary and several offices. The building, located next to the old hospital which houses various archeology ex- hibits, contains a vast array of biological items collected over the vears. T, HE curriculum in chemistry, approved by tlic American Chemical Society, is designed to prejjare students for graduate work as well as to enable them to fill positions in industry and production after graduation. A graduate in this department is well jjrepared to enter the fields of development, research, sales and personnel. Although the primary field of interest is chemistry, the student finds that mathematics, physics, social studies and the languages comprise a large part of his curriculum. The study of chemistry presents a real challenge to any student. Colonel German Head, Department of Chemistry Seated: Cot Smart. Col. Ritclu-y. Cot German. I.t. Cot Wise Standing: Mr, Pike.

Walter MAURY-BROOKE HALL laury-Brooke Ilall, which houses the Chemistry Department, was built in 1909 and named after two distinguished members of the VMI faculty. The first floor contains a large lecture room, offices, supply rooms and a general chemistry lab. The second floor contains the organic and quantitative labs, while the third floor provides a second organic lab and the physical chemistry lab. A new addition to the building, completed this year, pro- vides a large lecture room. DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING 1 T. HE civil eiigiiu ' crins ' (•urriciikim, approved by the Engineer ' s Council for Professional Development, provides the student a background in the liasic sciences, applied engineering subjects, and a number of well distributed cultural subjects. Included in his preparation are courses in electrical, mechanical, structural, sanitary and design engineering. There is no specialization in the curriculum and thus the graduate is well prepared to move into any field he may choose. With the distinction of being the oldest of the engineering professions, VMFs department is also the newest in that it is equipped with the most modern laboratories for student use. Just this year a new annex of Nichols Engineering Hall was completed, providing additional facilities to sui ijlement tho.se alreadv in use.

The rooms are e(|uipped with modern lighting systems, and the new annex completed this year provides three floors of well ecjuipped labs and drafting rooms. The building contains electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic labs as well as a new soil testing lab, A technical librar ' is maintained also. r DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING 1 _ ' nLONEL -Jamison Head. Department of FJertrirat Knijincering XL LE( ' TJ{K ' AL engineering ' , in the past decade, has become a vast and intricately developed field requiring rigorous and specialized training. Recognizing the need for a basic foundation in the fundamental engineering principles, the V II electrical engineer is given a diversified curriculum to encompass a broad knowledge of the electrical field which enables the graduate to choose from a wide range of specialized engineering and related fields. Although considerable stress is placed on technical courses, a liberal background is embodied within the curriculum in order better to prepare the graduate for the complexities of the modern business world. Considering the demands of industry, the Department strives to produce the well rounded graduate who can (Hiickly be as- similated into a wide range of fielils. Seated: Col. Jamison, Lt. Col. Nichols Standing: Mr. Kwei, ' 2nd Lt. Kessler, Air. Tu cker PRESTON LIBRARY Dedicated in 1939, the building is named in honor of Colonel John T. L. Preston, who advocated the establishment of the Institute. The library, which serves cadets of all majors, contains over 100,000 volumes in addition to the museum on the first floor which is a living record of the many accomplishments of our alumni. DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH Ti HE English DeiJartinent at VMI lias carefully laitl out a four-year course of study in which the student is able to familiarize himself with the greatest literature of all time from the formation of folk myth and basic Yestern philosophy to the erudite poetry of T. S. Kliot and the " stream of consciousness " novels of James Joyce. The effect of this is to produce a more aware and thoughtful individual who is ])repareil to enter almost any field. In this day of specialization, such a course is .somewhat of an anachronism becau.se it produces well rounded men along classical educational lines instead of a one-sided personality. It is for this reason that the graduates have had such an outstanding record in the best graduate schools in the country. COLOXEL DlLLAKD Head, Department of Eiujlish Seated: Maj. Byers, Col.

" The Mrginia Military Institute Will He Heard From Today, " which was said by Jackson on May i, 186;5. at Chancellorsville. Jackson taught at the Institute twelve years. DEPARTMENT OF HISTORY AND ECONOMICS H iJ E can (Jisijutc the role of history as a record of the ])ast anil as an indicator of the fntnre. A background in liistory prepares students for careers in many fiehls — graduate work, law, economics, jo u-nalism, business, foreign service, the armed forces, and many others. It is the aim of the IIistor ' Department to prepare the student for the career of his choice by means of a well balanced curriculum and a coordinated course of study. While the ])ractical i)urpose of the department is to |)repare the student for a career upon graduation, it has the further aim of teaching students to e. ' ]3ress their ideas in a concise manner and to develop the mind through logical and rati onal thought processes. Colonel Fuller Head, Department of History Seated: U. Col. Morris.m, C.jl.

The annex was completed in 1958 providing rooms for various cadet activities as well as the liberal arts, mathematics, and geology departments. The cadet Chapel and the new recreation rooms are located in the annex. c ' ADETS majoring in the liberal arts at V II are offered Spanish, French, German, and elementary Russian by the language department as a means of furthering both their knowledge and appreciation of these subjects. After basic grammar and vocabulary have been thoroughly mastered in their particular language, the cadets, as time pro- gresses, learn how to appreciate more fully their language through reading and conversation with each other; of utmost importance is the emphasis placed on the ability to speak fluently the language since this will be a prime prerequisite in possible future work both from a practical standpoint and in the field of international relations.

The famous painting de- picting the charge of llie ( ' or])s of Cadets at New Market is located here in addition to ])ortraits of distinguished men who have been connected with the Institute. DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS T. HE Mathematics Department has developed greatly in the last few years. Two degrees are now offered leading to a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science in lathematics; these degrees will be awarded for the first time this year. The courses offer thorough background for graduate work, a career in mathematics or most any engineering field. Every cadet spends at least one year in this department whether it be studying the Fundamentals of Math or Advanced Calculus in which he gains greater respect for his training in logical think- ing and ability to collect data.

The kitchen is so designed as to have all facilities, such as bakery, refrigerated storage rooms, pantries and dish- washing rooms, arranged around the central kitchen. The build- ing was completed in .January, 19. ' 55. DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING 1 W, IllLE the Mechanical Engineering Department does not oti ' er a degree, its function is extremely important as it pertains to the departments of Physics, Civil Engineering, Chemistry, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering. Physicists are taught Thermodynamics while the others have mechanics and drawing classes in addition to Tliermodynamics. The courses taught in this department are fundamental in their sco])e, absolutely vital to an understanding of the more s])ecialized subjects which come later. Thus, the department is by nature one presenting service courses, individual, and at the same time, related to other de|)artments.

Its five floors serve as ofiices for the physical and athletic directors, coaches ' quarters, training rooms, visiting teams ' rooms and the indoor rifle range. The main hall is used mostly for dances and intra- mural athletic contests and serves often for various exhibits. DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS I M. ALLOJiY HALL, established in 19,5 ' 2, is both modern and well-equipped. The staff is highly competent in all fields of jjliysical endeavor. The caliber of instruction is constantly being improved by the fact that each year sees members of the staff taking more graduate work. Physics, the cornerstone of all engineering, is essential to the preservation of our modern society. The favorable student-instructor ratio exemplifies the high ((uality of instruction. This combination of facilities and in- structors provides the student with the opportunity for ex- ceptionally fine undergraduate work in physics.

King ProfesHor of Air Science T, .IIF Air Force Reserve Officer Training Cor])s is a vital ( ' lenient in the nation ' s atomic age. Through this program, the most select men are graduated into the most strategic posi- tions of air offense and defense. At " MI, the fourth classman selects Air Force ROTC because he has a desire to fly. He is soon, however, made aware that the unique position of the Air Force in world affairs requires a great number of competent men in non-flying positions. Research, development, weather, opera- tions, and administration are but a few of the highly important ])ositions open to the career man in the Air Force. At VMI, the Department of the Air Force has begun the Flight Indoctrination Program for all first classmen who are Cfualified to fly. This program follows a four week tour of duty at summer caniij where all Air P )rce ROTC cadets of the second class are instructed in operations. The mission of the Department of Air Science at VMI, there- fore, is to instill within its AFROTC cadets an overall conception of air power and pur|)o.se with as much practical application as possible.

Reed XVECOGXIZED by the Depart iiiriit of the Army as a leader among military eolleges, the Mrginia Afilitary Institute offers a vinique and varied military program to its students. Learning basic fundamentals of the military dtu ' ing their first year, cadets elect their particular branch of the Armed Forces at the end of their second year. Armor, Artillery, or Infantry being offered. During the third and fourth years, the cadets enter an intensive study of the science and tactics of their particular branch and attend a summer camp of six weeks diuation at the end of their third year. At summer camp, they put into practice the vital information learned in the VJNII Military Science Department. The constant high standing of cadets at camp demonstrates the excellence of their instruction at the Institute. Recognition of over-all excellence in the military is given those cadets who meet the requirements by designating them Dis- tinguished JNIilitary Students. Cadets owning this honor are offered Regular Army commissions. All cadets, however, receive Reserve commissions upon graduation. In keeping with modern military concepts, the Military Science Department is constantly striving to make realism, in both classroom and field, a steady factor. Proof of this high standard of instruction may be seen in the records that ' MI Regular or Reserve officers have maintained through the years.

THE FORTUNATE FEW ' i sr " Ohject.1 of honest pride to their iitstnictor.i. ' CONSTRUCTION H 1 J»d[A]N-LT.-i THE CLASSES Jn H mnnam DAVID RANDOLPH PETTYJOHN Dave was the type of cadet wlio, when doing an - job, did it conscientiously and with the utmost amount of zeal. He took everything in life quite seriously, but this didn ' t mean he was above having fun. Dave was very religious, and this spirit guided him in all his work. He was an asset to the Corps of Cadets and a real friend to each and every one of his Brother Rats. We in the Class of 1960 were saddened by Dave ' s untimely and sudden death. We feel that he was a man who was not only a credit to the Institute but to his fellow man as well. Dave will always be remembered as a true friend and a gentleman. ' I- t-- ' . ' F I R S T C L A S S F F I C E R S FIRST CLASS Each class to pass through V II has considered its experiences unicjue in some respect : its Rat Line was tougher, its resurrections were harder, its ring more handsome, the parties just a Httle wilder. And yet, each class has passed through the same process — the ySll process — and so there exists a common bundation. The Class of 1960 is no exception to this. We have seen the Institute change greatly, not only in the physical structure of the school, but in the academics and the military. The reciuirements for graduation have been raised: similarly, military disci])line has been strengthened. . side from these changes, we sense other unique experiences: in paying the price for mid- night door-slamming, in designing a plainer class ring, in fielding a large number of Conference champions. On the other hand, many of our experiences have been no different: the inspections, the penalty tours, late study period.s — each class having passed through these events. Too, we began our First Class year just as other classes before us, full of new ideas on how to make the Institute a better place, not only for our benefit, but for those classes that would follow, and i i ' -l-iS HISTORY although we encountered some opposition, we sense having made certain enduring contributions to our school. From an overall point of view, therefore, it aj)pears that the Class of 1960 is no different from any preceiling class, and to a certain extent, this is true. The V II way of life is so regulated and traditional that it is difficult for a particular class to deviate from the precedents that have been laid down. However, the very fact that the class shared these experiences, unique or not, signifies its development from a collection of names to a single body. By enduring the hardships along with the achievements, individuals have been drawn closer together, thus strengthening common bonds. The real record of this and all classes lies in the accomplishments of the members themselves. Even as the history of ViNII is based on the records of its akunni, so the liistory of our class will be made by its members. Pioneer medical researcli, a new super- highway, a political record of note — such achievements as these will record the story of our classmates as alumni. In four short years at the Institute we received the foundation for our life ' s work; we face the future confident that in our careers this early training will bear rich rewards and bring distinction to the members of our class and to their Alma Mater. .JoHx BoLLixG Williamson FREDERICK LEON ANDERSON Beckley, West Virg:nia Electrical Engineering, Armor — Private -t, 1, Corporal 3, Sergeant 2; American Institite of Elec- trical Engineers ' 2, 1; Armed Forces Cluli i, 3, i; Rat Wrestling i; Rat Track 4; Intramurals i, 1. How he got down out of the West Virginia hills, we ' ll never know, but he did, and Fred brought all the cultures of his state with him to VMI. It was not long before he caught on to the modes of civi- lized life and the Electrical Engineering Depart- ment. He will long be remembered for the many disturbances he has created in barracks, and on class picnics. Fred ' s future after the Army is not certain yet, but it hangs between being an Electrical Engineer or a professional play-boy. W ' liatever it turns out to be, we know Fred will succeed, because he has attributes fitting for either. GEORGE ROBERT AX Lexington, Virgixi.i Civil Engineering, Artillery — Private 4, Corporal 3, Sergeant ' 2, ' 2nd Lieutenant 1; American Society of Civil Engineers 3, ' 2, 1; Armed Forces Club 2, 1; Rockbridge County Club 1 : Distinguished Military Student, Superior Cadet Ribbon Award and Cita- tion 2; Army Flight Training 1; Intramurals 4. George, having the unquestioned honor of being a " faculty brat, " traveled all of three hundred yards to Jackson Arch that fateful day in September, 1956. In his four years at the Institute he has attained an enviable record, both academically and militarily. The " Ax " , however, hasTi ' t let his work keep him from making frequent trips to R.-M. W. C. or the Pine Room, where he is a veritable pillar of the party. If j ' ou don ' t find him there, chances are he ' s at Goshen Pass. George ' s innate sense of modesty has won him much popularity, a fact to which his many friends are a tribute. An outstanding cadet officer, DMS, and flight student, George ' s future as a regular Army pilot and artilleryman is virtually assured. ALAN GARDNER BALLARD Norfolk, Virginlv Biology, Artillery— Private 4, 3, 2, 1; Glee Club 4, 3; Tidewater Club 4, 3, 2, 1 ; Va. Academy of Sicence 3, 2, 1; O.

However, he has caused more pains at VMI that he has healed. He was a doctor who was always ready to operate at any time of the day or night. Doc is very popular with his classmates and has pulled many a person out of and into del t with his money creating abilities. Let us not forget Doc Ballard for his ballads, accom- panied by his Stradivarius ukulele, as he led the east side of barracks in a courtyard sing. Yes, Doc has been successful at VMI, and we are sure lie will attain great goals in the land bevond the walls. ' JjAiAAt:il The Eagle " JOHN HAWSOX BARR Hope, Arkansas Civil Engineering, Air Force — Private 4, Corporal 3, Supply Sergeant 5, First Lieutenant 1 ; Head Cadet Waiter; Floor Committee; Distinguished AFROTC Cadet; Armed Forces Club; American Society of Civil Engineers; Flight Instruction Program 1. " Big Toot " arrived at VMI witli Arkansas swamp mud in his hair. From beginning to end, his smiling personality and good nature has been an asset that has made him a true friend to all his brother rats. He was a conscientious worker and a man of ambition when be arrived at VMI, and he is leaving with even more. His positions as head cadet waiter and a member of the Honor Court are two of bis big accomplishments. He will be remembered by all for his sense of humor and willingness to help others. This June VMI will lose a fine cadet, but can be proud it has such an alumnus. PAUL MARTIN B.VYLISS Ale. :andria, Virgini.

Eagle came to VMI from Alexandria expecting much excitement with many adventures and has not been disappointed. After sleeping in the NE corner for the better part of his third class year, he decided to move to old barracks. From then on he has been an integral part of the operations from that region. He devoted this third class year to many trips home w-liich finally ended in a " honeymoon " to Panama City. Changing his tactics his second class year, he spent a good deal of his time flying out his window and even hanging from the parapet. From there his travels turned to Mary Washington. During his first class year. Eagle continued in his happy, carefree way making his friendships stronger and more lasting. When in the future we think of our stay at VMI, we will always have pleasant memories of Pat and the many experiences we shared. CARL ALTON BENNER, JR. Arlington, Virginia History, . rmor — Private 4, Corporal 3, 1st Sergeant i, Battalion Sgt.

Carl entered VMI from Arlington, Virginia, and from the beginning his military bearing and con- scientious effort to get ahead made him one of the most outstanding men in his class. Carl has established an outstanding record both in his military and academic work. His main aim in attending VMI was to receive his Regular . rmy commission and to be a Battalion Commander. He has been successful in both. Carl will be a success in whatever he decides to do, whether in military or civilian life. Itik BBI mas mmmimMiM j FIRS ' I PEARRE ASBURY THOMPSON BIBB, JR.

As one approaches the climax ol ' liis college years, he stops to look back on tlm-r m,i.1 limes he has enjoyed and his academic ac Iium nh iiU cluring his four years. One such cadet n ir ing lii past four years at VMl is P. A. T. Bibb, known to us as " Perry. " During his cadetship he has been one of the busiest Brother Rats of the class. His academic standing was his primary concern, but he still found time to participate in most of the extra- curricular activities and did a fine job in all he attempted to do. Perry ' s talent was not the sole possession of VJSII, for a certain young Madison miss discovered in him the kindness, understand- ing and eagerness to help others that we, his Brother Rats, have known him by. His cadetship has been a true success, and with Connie ' s inspiration, the future looks bright indeed. DAVID GEORGE BISSET Dayton, Ohio History, Air Force — Private 4, Corporal 3, Sergeant 2, Lieutenant 1; Glee Club 4; Little Gym Com- mittee 2; Cadet (sports) 2; Baseball 2, 1; Inter- national Relations Club 1. Dave came to II with a determination to gain his regular commission, and eventually Air Force wings. Since he has been here, however, he has managed to obtain far more. Dave ' s hard work in academics and a constant attention to the mililary will place him high in the standing of VMl ladiiaic -. His life is not all work, but in- cluilcs a sprinkling of plain old fun. At first he was somewhat quiet and shy, but within the space of one semester his roommates turned him into a snowman of some repute. Dave ' s relations with the opposite sex have been very successful, a fact verified easily by dropping by sororities and mentioning his name. Now as our class comes to its end, we all wish Dave much success in whatever he may do — flying, teaching or Fran. HUGH HAMLETT BLACKWELL Wytheville, Virginia Civil Engineering, Infantry — Private 4, 2, 1, Corporal 3; Distinguished Military Student; Armed Forces Club 4, 3, 2, 1, Secretary 2, Vice President 1; Amcii.an Sucirty of Civil Engineers; Rat Basketball; SmuI|ih.

On September 12, 1956, the Institute welcomed 345 cadets, aU of whom appeared alike, except for one 6 ' 2 " dirty blond whose walk and talk marked him as a Southwest Virginia product. YMI was lucky to get " Buddy " for only a few days earlier he had decided not to attend VPI — said he had already been to one prep school and that he couldn ' t afford a tractor anyway. De- termined and well liked by all. Buddy will become one alnmmis we know VMl will be proud of. — n " 4 [£LASS m BOWLMAX TAIiLETOX BOWLKS, JR. Chattanooga, Tennessee History, Infantry — Private, 4, 3, 2, 1; Football 4; Varsity Rifle Team 4, 3, i, 1, Co-Captain ' 2, Captain 1; Armed Forces Club 4, 3, 2, 1; Sports Staff Cadet 4, 3, 2, 1; Monogram Club 4, 3, 2, 1; Monogram Minstrel 3, 2; Southern Conference All-Star Rifle Team 2; Intramurals 4, 3, 2, 1; Kentucky- Tennessee Club 4, 3, 2, 1. Many people come to VMI for varied and far reaching purposes. In coming to VMI some have set a goal for strengthening their characters in overcoming the perils of life. Bo was one of these few. His leadership ability, strength of character, and development of inner self have been successfully attained with little or no difficulty. One can look at the record of such a man and easily see that success will follow him in whatever field of endeavor he will choose to pursue. VMI can be proud that she has had the privilege of helping to forge tlie character and mind of such a person. WILLIAM CLIVIE BOXLEY, III Raleigh, Xorth Carolina English, Infantry — Private 4, 3, 1, Sergeant 2; Color Private 1; Rat Football 4; Tennis Manager 3, 2, 1 ; R. E.

Whirley came rolling in from Raleigh back in ' 56, unaware of the rigors of the Rat Line awaiting him. His constant friendly and amiable personality soon gained him a multitude of close friendships which he has firralv cemented in his four years at VMI. " Whirl " can be found in Scott Shipp every Monday through Friday consistently burning the midnight oil. The week ends, however, are always reserved for Lynchburg and the young lass from Randy Mac. X evertheless, these two essential practices have not kept him from taking an active part in many other affairs around the Institute. He has participated in everything from athletics to the Hop Committee, clearly showing his diversified talents. Although very intent on accomplishing his goals, Whirley can always lie counted on to drop whatever he is doing to lend a luliiiim hand. This altribute, coupled with his iliccrful disposition at all times, insures him of a successful future in all that he niav undertake. OSCAR JEROME BRITTIXGHAM, III Xewport X ews, ' irgini.

When September ' 56, rolled around, one of Tide- water ' s proudest inhabitants pulled out of the Warwick swamps and joined that somewhat con- fused group now known far and wide as the Class of 1960. Aside from a slightly tragic run-in with the Department of History, Jerry has come up with one of the finest sets of grades in the class, winding up number one in the old horror, E. E. But it isn ' t just grades or electric circuits that will remind us of " 0. J. " His wide smile, ready comeback, and tossing mop of hair will always be remembered by those who knew him, and especially by those fortunate enough to call him " Brother Rat. " It is with real regret that we part company, but wherever he goes, or w-hatever he does, he w ' ill always carry with him our best wishes and the confidence that success is sure to follow. -J " Henry ' ARCHIBALD McDOWELL BROWN Norfolk, Virginia Biology, Infantry — Private 4, 3, i, 1; Varsity Ten- nis 3, d, 1; Recreation Room Committee; Tidewater Club; " irginia Academy of Science; Officers of the Guard Association. Arch entered the walls of the Institute back in ' 56, arriving from the " swamps " of Norfolk, setting out on a new life, a life filled with a series of ups and downs — mostly downs.

Si.ifus would admit that he hadn ' t trav.l.il ;i.(iii(i miles for nothing, but he shuffled tlin.iiL ' li liK H.it year, and the three proceeding yi-ai-. .Ii |. laying the good-natured disposition and till- Il II ii.lly Millie which are so characteristic of him. One of Doc ' s boys, Seafus has survived four years of lectures and labs virtually unruffled. Although he has always been a confirmed private, Seafus is as handy with a saber as most of the " zebras " in barracks. Being cjuite a cosmopolite, he has always had a wnining way with the opposite sex, Imt latel - his eyes have been cast solely in one direction— Wil- liamsl nrg. We don ' t know yet just what the future holils for this best of Brother Rats, but with his un- beatable personality and his flair for the best things in life, he will surely come out ahead in whatever he undertakes.

Brew came to VMI from Sperryville, A ' irginia, anticipating a glorious life of luxury and glamour. Being hriglit-eyed, bushy-tailed and cocky from the first, he has managed to accomplish this ideal even with interference from his academics. His exploits, including his stint of paratroopiiig at Alumni Hall, have been topics of con ( ' rsatitin around the stoops. He will be long remeinl ered liy his Brother Rats as a friendly but still cocky guy. .JAMES DAVID BYRLEY Pe. risburg, Virgini.

September, 1956, saw the arrival of Fud Caldwell, swamp philosopher, to the turbulent ' MI scene. .Always ready to defend the honor of his beloved Deep South, Fud will expound for hours upon the virtues of Southern rights, Southern hospitality and Southern women, but, even so, he can be depended upon to help even the most dyed-in-the-wool yankee when the need arises. If Fud doesn ' t become the next continental army commander, he and Charlotte will probably settle down and begin raising the next VMI class of ' 77; but regardless of his goals, we are sure that lie will be not only the pride of Louisiana but that uf ' MI. ..miJii.Liiiixil»liM ..WWH M V FIRSi BAYLISS O ' iXEAL CALLAHAN Glen Allen, Virglvlv Civil Engineering, Air Force — Private i, Corporal 3, Sergeant ' 2, 2nd Lieutenant 1; Armed Forces Club i, 3, 2, 1 ; American Society of Civil Engineers 3, 2, 1 ; Rat Wrestling 4 ; ' arsity Wrestling 3, 2. Neal came to VMI from Glen Allen, and brought with him a strong attitude of individuality, wliich he has maintained throughout his cadetship. Never one to complain, Neal has always looked at prolj- lems as being surmomitable, no matter how im- possible and dark they may appear. He has truly earned the term " Brother Rat " from his aliility to listen and offer a solution to any problem anyone may bring him. A very handy man with a slide rule, as his grades pleasantly reflect, a member of that elite society called AFROTC, along with a very special little red head, Neal will do well in life either as a civilian or an . ir Force officer. The best of luck always. Brother Rat. NORWOOD RONALD CAMPBELL Sax Diego, C.4.liforsi- English, Artiller — Private 4, 3, 2, li Cnf f Staff; Armed Forces Club. Ron went the way of many misguided engiTieers, and after three semesters of E. E. decided he was actually cut out to be an L. A. He has spent the renuiinder of his cadetship pro " ing he was right. - firm believer in sleep, Ron spentls his afternoons resting for the hard night of T aheail. . most gracious acceptor of kidding, one has to work at making Ron angry. L ' ndecided whether to follow his father into the military, or to continue his study in graduate school, Ron ' s energetic per- sonality and desire to get ahead will make him a credit to VMI, regardless of his choice.

However, he was fortunate enough to find a home at the Institute and it was here that he gave up the idea of ever going to college. Leonard won many friends here, mostly through his desire to help others and his winning personality. Whatever lie decides to do in later life, we know that success will be with him.

In Sejjtember of " ; (), the first George Cobb at ' MI walked into Jackson . rch, and with him came a jovial spirit. George has had a lot of " firsts " while he has been here. The first rat up to the General Committee, the first rat to blow up the rat chemist ry lab, and the first second of the class of " 60 to be strained by Col. Ritchey. George ' s third class vear lie became a full-fledged member of the TGS club and chose sack 101 as an elective subject. His second class year Col. Ritchey got hold of George, and told him to cleaii ort ' his black boartl with a pitchfork before the janitor saw it. Col. Ritchey and George never did see eye to eye — George wanted sack 101 as an electi -e and Col. Ritchey thought dift ' erent. After 4 " zips, " so did George. George has always had the aliilit ' to get along with anyone, and is a valuable asset to any i arty. When George leaves (this year or next), ' MI will lose one of its most colorful characters.

The fall days of 1956 found Joe Ed with his new shoes and ready smile in the barracks at VMI. True to his good-humored nature, he found a lot to laugh at around the Institute. He ' s still laughing, a little hysterically perhaps, but the Institute will do that to you. Between the F. I. P. program and a certain nursing student, Joe found many excuses to be in Lynchburg.

Originally from Montana, Bill fell in love with Virginia at first sight. Needing a rest from his world travels, he decided to vacation at VMI for four years. His " Rat " year, however, diil not dampen his urge to travel, and he venturcil to Poland the following summer. Spending a great deal of his time restricted to tlie Institute during his third class year, confinement became habit forming, and he vacationed that summer at Quantico. Bill profited greatly his second class year, as he discovered a short cut from Washington which was only 14 hours and 10 tours longer than the long way. Apparently the military atmosphere appealed to him as he worked liis way up (and down) through the ranks and, surprisinglv enough, became Cadet Captain. IVspite this ad.l.-d r,-sp,m il.ility, he still found time for stn.lics, as well as the lif;liter side of life. Bill will be remembered as a person who could mix military bearing with a smile, ami jiroduce a winning personality. RAYMOND FRANCIS CRICKENBERGP:!!

Ray aine to VMI from the Virginia town of I.yncliburg, and it took him only two days to become well known. This Rat line was to be walked in a military manner, but with feet the size of Crick ' s, this was almost impossible. This didn ' t bother Ray in the least, because he was too busy with his studies and his week ends in Lynchburg.

Sergeant Dabney came to VMI in September, 1957, from the Geisha houses of Japan and the v. S. Marine Corps. Wee Willie, although known for his easygoing attitude at the Institute, has confounded the experts and is graduating in only three years. His cadetship has lieen unique in other ways, too. He skipped the rank of corporal and went right on to Sergeant and then Lieutenant, but to his Brother Rats he will be remembered most for his amiable ways and the generous and sincere way he treated his fellow cadets. Although we are happy for Bill ' s success, his Brother Rats will be thinking of him when the final " Old Yell " is given for ' 61.

Wearing a jovial smile at all times, this positi -e thinking, hardworking guy has made a multitude of life-long friends. Being a habitual member of the 3;00 Club, Jim has won for himself a high place in his Biology curriculum. Not only is Jim the biggest " Rat Daddy " in the corps, but he also takes care of the Big Red Team. Jim wants medicine more than anything in the world, and vc are sure that he will made it.

From out of the bright lights and gaiety of Bridgeville, Bob came to the somber little town of Lexington. He quickly adjusted from the hood-life of D.. . ' s and pegged pants to the crew- cut and straight pants of VMI. Through hard work and long nights of late study, he moved from the geology lab to the Taft Room. Also by long hours of practice, he has developed into a fine bowler and someday may break 100. " Dales, " as he ' s fondly called by his friends, is quite the man with the girls. Imagine the stamina and fortitude of such a lad who had six (i.ates during one Christmas vacation! It is because of these traits that Bob will find no obstacle too great nor any task too tough to overcome. THOM-VS XANCE DANIEL, JR.

For the last four years, Tom has gained a reputa- tion that has spread past the limits of the Institute and all the way across the state. Not one to marvel at the splendor of the military system, he tried to " let loose " on his week ends to rid himself of the strain built up during his week of study and military training. But it can never be said that all play and no work made Tom a dull boy, as he spent many long afternoons on the football field and many late hours in the biology lab. Knowing life at the In- stitute would be no picnic, Tom set a goal when he was a Rat that required a strenuous pace which he followed for his entire cadetship. " This endeavor paid oft ' as he acquired the respect and friendship of his instructors and classmates, and excelled in his academics as well as on the gridiron. No matter whether he decides on a life as a " jet jockey " or as a doctor, Tom is sure to exceed and will always be remembered by the Class of 1960. .uLi.ijJi.iraa FIRS| EDWARD BRAXTON DAVIS, III POHTSMOUTH, ' lHGl.

Tony, a misplaced organ-grinder from New York, came to VMI in 1956. His Brother Eats were at first mystified by his " close the lights " or " shut the water " but soon accepted these classics as a part of Tony. By his third class year he had become pro- ficient in such arts as how-to-get-home-to-see- Joy and how-to-sleep-in-class-aiid-get-good-grades. Tony ' s second class year was brought to a peak with merely a tank and a telephone pole. Another memorable event was his engagement to Joy during Ring Figure, which included a migration of half of Little Italy to Lexington.

Soon after his arrival at the Institute, Bill was christened " . cv " bv his Brother Rats, and though this nickname has had many ariations throughout the last four years, the original has stuck with him. Bill must have made a big hit with the General Committee his first year, for he was the only Rat in history to have " all duty " the morning after one of its (Iit.iiIc.I meetings. It is ex hlnil iIliI academics have not been some- thing that Hill h.is needed to worry about. With relatively little study, he has kept pace with the " brains " of the Civil Engineering curriculum. Late study was a bad word for Bill when the sack was calling him in the evening. Now he wants to put that knowledge to work for the Army in the Corps of Engineers. It seems a sure thing that Bill will find a brilliant career in engineering, and we can be sure that " Acey " will be heard from again.

Dune never had trouble finding girls, but always seemed to have a different date for every hop, as evidenced by the number of female faces smiling out from his desk blotter. He adjusted to the military system from the start and never seemed to get into trouble as a Rat, as shown by the increasing number of stripes on his sleeve each year. Although many minor calamities occur daily in the Ufe of any cadet. Dune took everything in stride. His good natured laughter was a familiar sound in b.- rracks.

Dick came to VMI for the first time in March, 1956. He fell in love with the Institute then and there and refused to go anywhere else. Through his four years here he has become known as the fastest talker in the corps. He is always ready with a smile for everyone and a bet on the pools. Many of the fairer sex have fallen before him, but he still manages to stay unattached. In his Rat year, Dick dyked " The Animal " and has been following in his footsteps by his own ex- ploits on the football field. He has become a firm believer in the system and is a staunch supporter of the " Rat Daddy " corps. All in all, Dick has been a great Brother Rat, one whom we have admired and respected. I ' m sure that no one in the Class of 1960 will ever forget " Mumbles.

All wrapped up in a liundle of energy, we have the biggest " plugger " of our class. Determination and stamina fused together into a solid mass i)f Ferrier caused him to be an outstanding athlete. Much to the coaches ' distress, Frank decided to devote and channel his entire time and aspirations to being a physician. Many nights were spent in the biology building into the late of the night soak- ing up detailed bits of knowledge about the field of medicine. In addition to presiding over the Archaeology Club, Frank was elected to the presidency of the Armed Forces Club. His sincere interest in the problems of others and his magic personality has made friends for him from all classes. Frank is a sure bet to succeed in the field of nieilicine.

But tliK iiiiiHH- iiruMi-m i,f tin- Institute " Tac " officers and ir;;ul,il ions iliil not bother him in the least, because Jim had, and still has, an uncanny ability of not letting anything disturb him in any way. If anyone else had been faced with the problems that he had they would have thrown in the towel long ago. But " Slink " came to VMI to be an E. E. and to play basketball and he did just that. There were some great times and there were bad ones, P. T. ' s and confinement. But through it all came " Slink " unbothered, unscratched, and a little older and smarter, . lways a great guy!

Out of the hills came a fella answering to tlie cry of " Dumbo " , who has the elite distinction of being the only man in the corps compelled to enter barracks through the arches sideways. After s iicumljing to the rigors of a coed North Carolina rnllcge, he decided to seek the easier life of a military man at VMI. Buddy is not only a scholar and model military student of the Air Force, but he is also a -ctcran plumber in Band Company. After many moons of late study, 2300-2315, the " Flapears " has hnallv become a bona fide test tube washer. -, ' FIRST ' g _ M 1 V r ' Stump " JOHN HARVEY FILTOX Silver Sprixg, Maryland Civil Engineering, Infantry — Private 4, 1, Corporal 3, Sergeant Major -2; American Society of Civil En- gineers 3, ' ■2, 1; Armed Forces Club 4, 3, " 2, 1; Rat Football 4; Floor Committee 4, 1; VMI Cadet 4, 3. The " Stump " may have to use the shoe shine stool to get to his rifle, take baths in the sink, and take some kidding about being one of the " old men of barracks, " but he has survived it all. John came b ack to VMI after a few trips out the door with the Airborne troops and has become a part of ' 60. He has shown that he can stick to a goal through both good and bad. It looks as if the West will be getting an engineer because the Stump and his little lady seem to be heading that way;but nomatterwhere, he will be remembered by us as a hard worker and a great person to have for a friend. His determination, personality and desire to improve himself certainly point to a bright future for the " Small Man " in any field he niav choose. JAMES WILLIAM GALE Fredericksburg, VracixiA Electrical Engineering, Artillery — Private 4, 3. -2, 1; Glee Club 4; Religious Council. From the nation ' s most historic city came the " Fredericksburg Flash. " Jim, determined to develop his mental prowess to the utmost, chose the field of Electrical Engineering for his major. Due to his strong will power and his ambition to reach great heights, he was finally awarded the honor of " Mr. Amateur. 1960. " Of course Jim does not let his work interfere with his pleasure. During the past years, he has been known to frequent nearby girls ' schools, i. e., Randolph-Macon. We are sure that all the girls have benefited from his wonderful instruction in the field of calculus and other subjects of interest. What the world holds in store for such a talented young man no one knows, but we ' re sure it will offer the best of evervthing to him. WILLARD VERNON GATES, JR.

Chico " Bear-0 " Gates is one of the most feared fellows at yyil when he swings a megaphone. But aside from being a fearless megaphone wielder, Chico gives the Corps spirit on Saturday afternoons or at anytime. He has made many friends and he will continue to make more wherever he goes. Look for him in the near future on a carrier deck — or in the water just a few feet behind the ship. Wherever you find him, you will find a great Brother Rat of the Class of ' 60.

From " The House of Champions " came Bob, with first an eye for the Marine Corps. But as the boys of ' 60 matured to their first class year, so did he. No longer docs he desire the fiery life of action and glcry, Inil r.tlli.T more subtle ' pleasures. A natural leadrr ;iiimmil: ili,,se who have attaiiieil sub- stantial posit iull aLadeuiically and militarily, Bob leads in a manner uncommon to men who succeed only for a short time, but rather in a way which assures us that he will hold his own and attain success, regardless of what level he becomes as- sociated with. Being not only a hard worker when the chips are down, but always a slugger, is one of the best indications of a future success. MI presents Bob to the world for evaluation and the future.

Four years ago Jim came to ' MI where he was to start his climb to the position of " the richest man in barracks. " With his talent for making money he went through our Rat and third class years dreaming of that new convertible he would have in 1IH;(i, AIlliMiigli he wasn ' t at the top of his class aeadeiiiii ,dl he did manage to survive Colonel Morgan ' s fabulous curriculum and still find time for many activities. Always one to get out of military duty, he soon became quite famous for his many lengthy and elaborate permits with which he flooded the Commandant ' s Office. His greatest achievement has been as Editor of tlie 1960 Bomb. Throughout our first class year Jim has spent many hours on the make-up and then the production of what we think is the finest annual ever publislied at the Institute. AVe are sure that whatever Jim does in his now life he will be successful, for he certainly has the mark of a real businessman.

' Wog " came to the Institute in the fall of ' 56 determined to get everything out of VMI that was possible. Looking back now, we can see that he achieved everything that he strived for. Bill ' s military record leaves little to be desired, as he has risen from corporal to Bravo Company Executive Officer. He has also found time for extracurricular activities, within which he has been outstanding. His classmates bestowed upon him the honor of being a member of the Honor Court, which is indeed a real tribute. Bill also found time to carry out his activities on the Bomb staff and the Hop Committee, in addition to surviving Colonel Morgan ' s fabulous curriculum. Selection to Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities is certainly a fitting reward for his achievements. With Kay, liis one and only. Bill will always be on top in all walks of life. j ■ K assaammBm mm FIRS1| " Henry " .ta: ies gratton w. gillespie, jr.

In 1956 another Tidewater Rat entered the In- stitute. It was evident from the start, however, that this one wasn ' t going to be like the average Tide- water Cadet. Since then, the Jeepster has been doing just what comes naturally — being a leader. His initiative pleasing personality, and hard work have helped him attain the three goals he set upon graduation from high school — a high academic rating, a high cadet ranking, and a certain belle at Southern Seminary. Whatever .leep decides to do in the future, we can be sure that he will excell, and be a tribute to the Institute as well as his Brother Rats ENRIQUE GORBEA, JR.

Wally is a Tidewater boy at heart, even though his new home takes him far from the shipyard scene. ■As a Brother Rat, Wah Wah has attained the distinction of remaining one of those thinking pri- vates for four years. Behind the scenes he has spearheaded many of our class movements with an eloquence surpassed only by Socrates himself. ' all ' has all the makings of a first class lawyer. If his success in school work and popularity among his classmates is a valid indicator, there is no reason why Wally should not achieve his ultimate aims in life.

Such a combination of brains and brawn is evidence of certain success in the future whether in military or civilian life. 4 ICLASS JOIIX ARCHIBALD HORCAX, JR.

He managed to combine his easy-going attitude in barracks with one of keen desire to win everytime the " Big Red " took to the turf on Saturdays. Sam has qualified himself as a leader in every respect, and we are sure that in the future his leadership ability will continue to exemplify itself. Whether he chooses to remain in the sports world, follow a military career, or enter business, he is sure to be a man of high character and distinction who shall always command the respect of those associated with him in any way.

Lynch- burg ' s Rivermont Avenue will never forget the open houses held at the Houck residence for the Brother Rats of ' 60, and for the VMI Glee Club. Each advancing year has seen Pete become more dedicated in his purpose of pursuing the life of a doctor. With avid faith in humanity, and a de- termination to do something about it, it seems a certainty that he will see his ambition of being a doctor fulfilled. If it can be said that Pete patterned his life along one single phrase, it would be — " They ' re only truly great, who are truly good. " «- -V i FIRST WILLIAM FRANKLIN HUGGIXS FiNC.

This has been brought about by much hard work, a fact all Rats will testify to. Jay has one other outstanding merit — the dis- tinction of being one of the few cadets to have dated a different girl at every dance held during his cadership! Our kidding aside, if success follows hard work. Jay ' s future looks bright indeed. BRIAN LEONARD KANE iI. ss.

Between his sense of humor, not ap- preciated Ijy the upperclassmen, and Jiis desire to lia e a room that looked " lived in " not ap- jircninted by the commandant, Brian became quite ]ii)i)nlar at ' MI during his Rat year. .Vflcr the first semester of his Rat year he saw the light and lie(anie an English major, then engaging his greatest Nemesis, Spanish. Brian found another struggle in the " Little Gym, " with the Testling team.

In liis first year of trial he led a Brother Rat on a daTigerous mission to the fifth stoop, . lthough the mission failed, George didn ' t, as is shown by his being executive officer of A Company. Here at VMI, George has been one of the few but happy exceptions to an age-old tradition. Always present in his mind has been the picture of one special young lady. There are many things at ' MI that G. P. will remember. Among them are room wrestling matches, Goshen and the chemistry building. There is no better way to close than to say " Venil Vidi!

Hap, although he didn ' t want us to know it, was fore ' er bucking for rank in the corps. He was really proud when he looked at " his " staff at summer camp and saw some of the corps " leaders " below him.

In the fall of 1956, John recrossed the Potomac and made his way to the Institute. He came here by way of St. Francis College in Pennsylvania and soon enrolled in the ' 59B Club. After going through his Rat year as an E.E., John saw the light and joined the elite Liberal Arts organization, and by determination and hard work, managed to drag himself from the depths of the E.E. labs via the Geology lab to the glittering lights of the Taft Room. In his third class year he was one of the " Yob ' s " boys and earned his letter in basketball. However, part ownership in the Clydesdale horses forced his retirement from the game. During his four years liere John has won many friends with his quiet sincerity and dry humor. With these assets and the help of a young Irish colleen in Washington, John is sure to make his wav in the world.

" Mo-Rabbit, " a private from grand old " E " Company, hails from Butler, Pennsylvania. With his pleasant manner and great personality, he has captured the respect of all who have known him. Slated for a lot of duty with the Big Red this past season, an early ankle injury kept him from reaching his maximum potential. The clan that heads for Florida every Easter is likely to miss Joe after this year. Studying dentistry at Pitt will more than consume all his extra time, although an occasional party is sure to find its way into Joe ' s life. His ability to mix and associate with others will be a key asset in the accomphsh- nient of his chosen goals. Being one of Captain Kelsey ' s tin-can rollers, we think he ' s well equipped to handle any job he may take on. Lots of luck in the future to a truly great guy.

When Howard came to the Institute, VM I gained a million laughs. From the first, his " Brother Rats " could depend on Howie to make their problems seem a bit smaller. College meant only more fame to one of Richmond ' s most outstanding athletes. " Howie " brought prestige to VMI track by running with some of the fastest men in the Nation ' s history. But for him, the Big Red would have been minus one of its spt ' cdifst guards and best clubhouse lawyers. Thongh he spcTit many hours on the track and gridiron of Alumni field, he also managed to lead in the academic an l military aspects of ' MI life. The books came first, but polish and sack ran a close second.

They ' ve given a new meaning to the words Brother Rat, and with the fair sex at Hollins, Sweet Briar and Randolph-Macon, they have achieved goals hitherto unknown to the layman.

" Little Napoleon " first came to the Institute in September, 1956, with his eyes set on three goals : an RA commission, a gal named Marcia, and a diploma. At first disappointed in what he saw, Elbridge ' s " pride and joy " nevertheless bore with all phases of the system. Now over the hump, Howie ' s combination of brains and determination have assured him of that rapidly approaching diploma. Friendly and always ready to lend a help- ing hand, Howie has earned both the admiration and true friendship of his classmates. His other two goals are now rapidly being realized and his wonderful personality, cheerful attitude and sincere manner are bound to make him a success in the future. Looking back over the years, we say with pride, " He was a rea Brother Rat. " DLVALL THOMAS ROYSTER, .IR.

George is one of those stubborn Southwest Vir- ginians who will be remembered as a strong advocate of M - ' rcLMtinn. Forge was in the Air Force, so of cciiii r, 111. V the army is not needed, it should be di.-liaiiiird. Now his real pet peeve was the topic of the right of the South ' s secession. George believes the South was a victim of circuiii t r .infl the war should be fought over. He was shmi willid, Ijut he turned this quality in the right dirertion by making the Dean ' s List and being that ultra first class private at a time when it was almost an impossible achievement. George was a faithful friend to all who knew him. Best of luck to our Brother Rat from Big Stone Gap and to Nancy. RICHARD L.

Rich came to V1 II in 1956 from the part of ' ir- ginia that didn ' t quite get the word — Wlieeling, West Virginia — but proved himself far from being uninformed in his distinguished career at the Institute as is shown by the academic stars which he has worn for two years and the stripes of the Regimental S-3.

Rich has undertaken much more than I lie nnniia! load of leadership in the corps and will inn i .i nii ' dly take an early lead in society and bn- ' iiio wlierever he may be in the future. . s a Rat, he set his goal, and being determined to achieve it, applied himself; making the necessary sacrifices in order to prove that " anything worth having is worth working for.

His activities are many and varied, but they all bring out his leadership abilities. He headed the com- mittee that designefl our ring, he sits on the General Conunittee as class historian, and his athletic prowess is w(-l| known to the opposition. Oi . .isinn.illy, the military aspects of this institu- tion h;i ■ Iiinilcrcd his attainment of thejoie de vivre; nevertheless, it may be readily .said that this is the type of man that the Institute is proud to produce.

Cleahwatek, Florida Electrical Engineering, Artillery— Private 4, 3. 2, 1; American Institute of Electrical Engineers; Radio Club; D. M. S.: Fencing Team, Manager 3, Co- Captain 2, 1; Cadet Lab Assistant. From the desert wastes of Fort Sill came Jim, aspiring to be a Reserve Artilleryman. Four years at VMI and summer camp at Aberdeen Proving Grounds have persuaded him to respond to the call of a Regular commission in Ordnance. During his cadetship, " Scutfy " has succeeded in many fields. A terror on the fencing mat, a D. M. S., and a highly proficient student Jim ' s activities have also included the winning of a fiancee. When not engrossed in constructing that cancerous growth of electrical equipment that threatens to overrun the room, or engaged in his role as barracks radio expert, Jim may be found actively upholding the Rat line. Future years will certainly assure Jim, not only of much success in his chosen field, but of at least one son at the Institute.

Kenny came to VMI from a small town in Penn- sylvania, and, as the old adage goes, it didn ' t take long for the hometown boy to make good. Kenny ' s activities at the Institute ' have been highliglit( ' rat tile beginning of each school year whi-n b)utl)all bocnnu ' the thing most important. " Blinky, ' " as ]v is known to his teammates and the coaches, l)rought honors to himself and to the Institute as an outstanding member of the Big Red Team. Injuries iiampered his full participation and prevented his becoming a leading candidate for All-Star honors. His ability was not limited to the football field, however, for in track he captured All-Southern Con- ference honors as a real speedster. A good student of electrical engineering, Kenny would be ranked among the top on the honor lists if only those L.A. courses weren ' t tossed in. Kenny will be missed by all of us who have known him and enjoyed his sense of liumor. No matter whicli path of life he may take, we ' re sure he ' ll set as fast a pace as he has on the tracks of VMI.

They ' ve given a new meaning to the words Brother Rat " and with the fair sex at Hollins, Sweet Briar and Randolph-Macon they have achieved goals hitherto unknown to the layman. They never achieved military rank, but with a spark and a boundless rnergy they led in the upholding of the First Class Private tradition.

In the fall of 1956, Puerto Rico sent the Institute a favorite son, " Mo " Seda. It wasn ' t lon ; i efi re he began to learn various things about the place. They included such things as the art of dyking out in every possible uniform within an hour. " Mo " survived the Rat line, much to the third ' s dismay, and in June he became one of Doc ' s top ranking Biology majors. He became a member of the Banana League his third class year, and has bee!i a faithful member ever since. After graduation, another hard four years will be started at M. C.

Jim is a staunch member of the T. G. I. F. Club and an avid supporter of Company Permits and Week ends. On the week- ends you can find Jim in Roanoke or visiting one of tlie nearby girls ' schools. Never one to worry about keeping one girl, it is not unusual to find Jim writing several different girls, even at the same school, after rising sleepily from his " sack " where he can be found almost every afternoon from ' 2-4 p. m. This red-haired cadet possesses much determina- tion, a very likable disposition and a ready cheerful smile.

Henry came out of the hills of Southwest Virginia to enter the Institute in September, 1956, and es- tablish for himself a record that will take some time to equal. As President of the Honor Court he held the most respected and honored position in the Corps. This alone would niake him outstanding. His command of the Regimental Band produced the finest unit ever to represent ' M1. yet he managed to distinguish himself academic ally at the same time, which is indeed a real feat. He also found time to participate in athletics aiid tiic Air Force flight program. Y ' et, however busy iie may have l)een, Henry was always willing to lend a hand to a fellow cadet. Congratulations, Jeni Ann, for to us a more loyal or better man is nowhere to be found. Henry needs no well-wishers and prophets speculating on his future; for we know nothing but success lies ahead for him. CORDON MARSHALL SHOEMAKER, .IR.

Mike, one of the smartest Ivy League dressers in barracks, must have been awfully homesick for the area in which he grew up to leave the warm, salty air of Virginia Beach for VaH in the Fall of ' 56. After a one-year stay at the Listitute, Mike attended Hampden-Sydney College for a year of wine, women and song. But tiring of these, he re- turned to Lexington to spend the next two years resting up. Mike has been known to give the] shirt off his back for anyone who needed it, and with no doubt in our minds, we know he will give the world the same thing he has given us — his shirt. Keep your eye on this outstanding Brother Rat. He will go far in this man ' s world.

He is one of the chosen few — a regular on the Penalty Tour first string. Once our second class year, his name appeared on the " well known sheet " so often that they almost gave it to him — sort of like a diploma! But with all this, " the Bananas " still has a big smile and a wisecrack for any occasion. In the line of recreation, " the Bunch " enjoys such sports as throwing first classmen into the PX well or from the second stoop, a hobby w ' hich didn ' t turn out too profitably. He also enjoys football, and for two years played for the Big Red. However, it got to the point where running a play around his end became a project in itself. So " the Bananas " retired from the field of sports in favor of the hay. " The Bunch " n. ' Ncr held rank in the corps, and he isn ' t a class otfiicr. But believe nic, lie is one of the biggest men in tiic barracks, and cari-ics a lot of weight wherc cr he is. .STEPHEN ' McLEAN SL.

After spending a relatively quiet Rat year at the Institute, Bob crashed into the upper class life as a third, second, and, finnally, as a first. Wedged between his second and first class years was a government-paid vacation to Fort Sill summer encampment. It was here at the Artillery Country Club that Bob was to be found expounding the virtures of MI to the uninitiated. He is known for his good humor and his willingness to talk to any and everyone.

Certainly no one has made more intimate friends in the corps than Tommy. Coming to VMI in September of 195( with the horde of other Roanoke Rats, he very early displayed his conscientiousness and sincerity.

His activities have been wide and varied including intermittent trips to a certain college in Sfwrtanburg, S. C. As one of Doc ' s boys.

Although he did not ' take the military very seriously, he, by a typical . rm - " goof-up, " Made DMS! During his third class year Stubb was best known for his many trips to the House on the Hill in Buena Vista. Everybody loves a fat man, and we ' re sure all of Stubb ' s friends will remember his famous laugh for many years after graduation. Good luck in the future to a Brother Rat whom we know will go tar.

With his four years at VMI completed, Taze has had an outstanding place in the Corps of Cadets. He has worked diligently as a student in Mallory Hall, as a ranking zebra on the hill, and as a popular classmate in barracks. Possessed with pride for his class and school, he upheld the standards by which the corps abides and was always ready to lend a helping hand in any way. Hailing from the good old sandy soil country, Taze quickly accustomed himself to tlic hills of Lexington on various hunting sprees wIk-u his increasingly difficult work in the Phy.sics liuilding allowed it. Maintaining almost perfect lic |) attendance during his cadetship, Taze constantl.v fell in and out of love, managing to date at least one girl from every girls ' school within a 60-mile radius. After graduation, Taze should have no trouble applying his qualities of leadership and his ability to get along with people to his future work. He plans to give tli ' Army two years and then go on to graduate sclionl. .ludging the future by the past, the Class of lllliU should be very proud of him someday.

Herb entered the Institute in 195G. Actually he wanted to go to W L, but a cop gave him the wrong directions and he wandered in Jackson Arch, " the man who may never return. " (Will he ever return. 1 During his Rat year he set the enviable record of receiving fifty demerits in one period. On his rare appearances at the College Inn, as president of the club, he has worn a groove in the bar leaning on it. His popularity was so great that on occasion the tactical staf¥ paid him special visits. In fact, he was so disturbed that he had to resort to the sack.

Bill, coming to VMI after completion of a year at Siena College, found that lieiTig a third class rat was a trifle unique. However, he quickly oriented himself to the small third class physics section in which he was considered the mascot. Even under this added burden he made a much envied place for himself in the section. There was always a variation in his pleasant personality which was coupled with a deep sincerity and willingness to help his friends. He was always one who could be trusted to do his best when a favor was asked. It is quite evident tha this methodological manner of analyzation will carry him far in his chosen field of physics.

He left at mid-term that year, but returned a year later to resume cadetship, parties included. His list of friends is long.

Since that summer day, George has never once relaxed his ert ' orts to advance himself. We will always re- member him as the one who was responsil le for the late lights in the lab, the blue blob on the organic lab ceiling, the blown fuses in the M.S. building, and, most of all, as the one who was never too busy to help a Brother Rat in need.

Like many of us Hugh went tlirough his Rat year terrified, and not without cause. The next three years saw many modifications in his iewE and outlooks. With his change of major in his second class year Hugh finally found his place at VML As an outlet for his pent-up frustrations, which are common to all Cadets, Hugh has put his all into the VMI Glee Club where he has spent many a valuable hour vocalizing. Civilian clothes, which every Cadet dreams of, are one thing which Hugh has a passion for. When- ever there was a PX showing, there could be found the Cadet in question. The future holcLs much for you, Hugh. Good Luck! JACK TUCKER WILLARD, JR.

This was Troy Ibiward Williams, who was destined to be one of the most prominent of " Doc ' s Boys. " But with this matriculate, the Institute gained one of its most unique products, for a strong sense of conviction, combined with a fascinating ability to handle any situation, has made him an object of respect of all who knew him. A dislike for the Kingston Trio and an obsession against gross Rats are about the only factors that have wavered Troy ' s generally even-tempered dis- position. This does not at all imply that he is not aggressive, because his familiar expression, " Get with it, " has always been his standard and the measure of his success. The best of luck in Med school, and all that follows a person who genuinely deserves it. fICLASS % f ■ lOT " " JOHN " BOLLIXG VILLIAMS() ' Richmond, Virginia History, Marine Corps — Private 4, 1, Corporal 3, Sergeant ' ■2; Glee Club 4; Librarian 3, ' ■2; Armed Forces Club 2; Monogram Minstrel ' 2, 1; Ring Committee ' 2; Co-Editor, Ring Figure Magazine 2; Officers of the Guard Association Rep. 1 ; Cheerleader 1 ; Tennis ■2; Track 1.

In the Fall of 1956 another Wise walked through Jackson Arch. Andy, along with his other Brother Rats, met the mi ' itary system and Rat line unwil- lingly. Nevertheless, he tucked in his chin and spit- shined his shoes, always meeting these newly ac- {juired hardsliijis with good humor. As a true Ul)eral artist, Andy has made a name for himself in the history department. He also has done well ill Imrizontal laboratory.

Coming to VMI from Hampton, Barry rose to fame at the Crow ' s Nest and at Stevesville. More frequently referred to as " The Small, " Barry produced laughter wherever he went. One of the most popular men of the class, he was an active member of the Glee Club and could be seen as " Howard " in the Monogram Minstrel. Our " Big Red " got a big boost from the cheers led by Barry and his fellow cheerleaders, . ndihe will never be forgotten by the boys in the corner for his capacity and his girl troubles.

It is obvious their pride is based in part on the excellence of the military and academic systems; however, it is the class organization that so strongly binds VMI men together as devoted schoolmates and later as loyal alumni. It is a compelling force, first initiated by the rigors of the Rat Line, developed by four years of close association in barracks, strengthened by gradu- ation, and remembered by a glance at the ring finger of one ' s hand. Some have named this force the " Brother Rat Spirit; " this is probably as appropriate a title as one will find, for the memory a graduate retains of ' MI is centered ijrincijjally upon close personal ties with classmates. As our Second Class year draws to a close, we sen.se more fully llie significance of this spiritual tie. In the design of our ring we have included symbols of this spirit: the words " Honorus, S])iritus, Firmitas, " en- graved upon the i-ing, are meant to reveal the special quality of our class feeling. For us these words and all that they convey will live though the memory of J ing Figure will fade over the years. Our cla.ssmates are a talented lot, both in aca.lemics and athletics. In all fields of study their intellectual quality is evident; and in athletics the heavy load being borne by those of ' 61 is gratifying: over half the starting berths on the championship football team were filled l y Brother Rats; and the majority of the championship track team is from our class. Clearly, our cla.ssmates have demonstrated abundantly the courage, persistence and endurance required in highly competitive collegiate sports. Durnig our first three years in the Corp s we have seen many changes take place. There iias been a gradual tightening of the academic program. And along with this academic crackdown has come a more rugged military .system, marked by the absence of the renowned " gross first-class private. " Gone al.so from the present cadet ' s dictionary are such " Old Corps " expressions as " P. T. Road, " " Step-off, " " Shirt-tail Parade. " One might be led to believe that, having survived this rigorous system for three years, the cadet of 1961 had become the model " citizen-soldier. " However this may be, of more immediate importance is that the Class of ' 61 u.se this background to meet the great challenge of our First Class Year— fulltime leadership of the Corps. Next year we shall undertake this task along with that of learning the policies of a new superintendent and a new commandant, a combination faccl by very few .lasses in the past. Let us strive .so to u.se our abilities, in- dividually and collectively, that our final year will be the best we have known at Ml.

West Virginia OF 1961 X .A- :%- « THIRD CLASS HISTORY On a balmy spring night in lay of our Kat year, a howling, yelling i-ahhle gathered in Jackson leniorial Hall and three hours later emerged fully organized. The Class of 1962 had chosen its class officers, and under their leadership we passed through an unforgettable year, ending with the coveted " Rat Picnic. " " Picnic and Profit " was the slogan, and we did just thai . September rolled around and once again we founil ourselves back at the Institute. Happy were the sounds of greeting as olil friends and firother Rats were reunited. A few of us did not return, and a few who did had added numerous body cells: the cry from the tliini stoop was, " That blouse just won ' t fit! " The Rats were like new toys, but after a few days of fun and fi-olie we settled down to the task at hand, the administration of the Rat Line. However, the academic departments at VMI function well and we were soon burdened with unprecedented amounts of lessons, studies, assignments, problems and just plain work, work, work. The main project upon our retui-n was the design and selection of a class emblem and the ordering of our class sweaters. Designing the emblem, which liad begun before we left school for the sunuiier, continued with Tiiuch interest. The spirit and enlhusiasni shown by class members over this project was tremendous, and from this class unity came the jii-ond emblem we finally adopted. Needless to say, we were a happy bunch when our sweaters arri -ed the week before Ring Figure. Resurrections, we had lieen told, are just as hard on " thirds " as on Rats, and in Xo -eniber we found tliis to be all too true. Although hampered by the normal things, our first " Ressi " went fairly well and out of the choas came a closer Ijinding together of the class. Christmas was approaching and the week before Christmas furlough we gave the i{ats our own six-cial i)re.sent — a " One-Day S])ecial, " and then, " Ileigh-Ho, " we were off for two weeks of pni-e pleasure. (■])on i-etnrn fmni Christmas vacation we selected our Ring and Ring FigtU ' e Committees whic ' h began to function immediately. In February the Ring Committee, after several meetings with Josten ' s repre- sentatives, met with the head designer and completed the design of the ring. The theme of the ring design is centered on honors and achievements in the life of General George C. larshall. An ac(|uaniarine stone was selected. Our first attempt at I ' ine Room parties occurred the Saturday night of Ring Figure week end, and though it was not a financial success, the goo l time enjoyed liy all more than made up for tlie loss. At Midwinters, however, just about the whole ( ' ori s tnrne l out to enjoy one of the best iwirties ever. ' returned toour slogan, " Parties and Profit, " with Faster week end promising even better things. . fter Midwinters, life .settled into that monotonous day-by-day grind that coidinues until Spring Fur- lough. The Rats needed perking up and perked up they were as we staged our thiril resurrection, . bout this time we also elected our three representatives to the Ilonoi ' Court. After Si)ring Furlough -and when the Fort Lauderdale Jlangers had recovered — everyone settled down to hard work. Corjiorals seriously began to look toward those .sergeant stripes for ne.xt year. Routine was bi-okcn by Ivislers and Ihe I i-ansforni. ' il i in of Rats into Fourth Classmen. Spring Hike came at just tin- right time, although everyone returned in sad shape with exams just three days away. J5ut with exams nvrr. it was I- ' inals. Finals! A magic word — a time of happiness, sadness, parades, class spirit, and our class picnic, a frolic evci-yone enjoyed to the fullest. Then it was June 14 and so long for the summer. Hut we left with the knowledge ' that a year of .seasoning had drawn our class closer together and with the warm assuraiu ' c that we were destined for great things. Joux foTT Robertson, Je.

The proud traditions of an old school were a part of the atmosphere that we felt as we set foot on the jiost. [Many thoughts were racing through the minds of 347 of us who — for better or worse — had determined to wear the title — VMI Men. Each had a different reason for coming — a father, a friend, or a favorable impression gained from a printed page. It would be safe to .say that MARDI GRAS and Pat Boone had something to do with the Insti- tute ' s ])opularity. As we were to learn with some dismay, we had to walk before we could run. Only time, re])etition, and determination make a cadet. The first week of cadre quickly passed and culminated in a picnic back in the hills. Leaving the long, black shadow of I)arracks liehind, there we met the boys who would be our Brother Rats for life. The cadremen even appeared human when studied in a new light. The day was too good to last, for the next day the old cadets returned from their summer furlough. The nightmarish days which followed were a daze of " What ' s your cognomen?, " " Whoa, Rat, " and " What ' s for dinner, mister. ' " . The relaxation of the rat line for cheer rallies and football games gave us the needed respite. The first hops were here and gone all too quickly, but we had .something to think about during that first resurrection — battle drill to the administration. The bleak days between Thanksgiving and Christmas furlough were counted off by the whole Corps, when the turnout blared " Dismissed, " a great weight was lifted for the shortest two weeks of a lifetime. Civilian life was strange, but the feeling had a faint familiarity. The cold days following the return to the Hill lumg on while we took our first college exams. The halfway mark was reached and passed. The year flew with- out anyone ' s noticing. Before anyone was aware, white ducks were the uniform. New Market Day had gone, the spring hike was just a recollection of blistered feet and sore muscles, and Finals with its many diversions was history. The year had not been as bad as it had seemed. After being weighed in the balance and found to be of the proper qtiality, we tor)k our rightful place as the Class of 1963. We irere the old cadets. The Rat year accomplished a lot and aroused new interest in ourselves and in our Brother Rats. We had pa.ssed the acid test as a class. It is for us, the members, to assure its continued spirit and cohesion. By learning to work together, we learn to work for ourselves. The school presents a challenge — accept and fight, or get out. The students of yesterday become today ' s instructors. It is our duty to prepare others to face tomorrow with confidence. The opportunil - is here; we icill use it well.

Shirley President HONOR COURT The ll Honor System is one of the most important aspects of a cadet ' s life at the Institute, and it probably contributes more to the character building of students than any other concept. The Honor System applies basically to three things — lying, cheating, and stealing. The ke ' stone of the system lies in the fact that members of the Corps are honor bound to report any violation of the code that comes to their attention. There is only one penalty for a person found guilty by the Court — dis- honorable dismis.sal. The Honor System is administered by the Corps through its Honor Court which is composed of twelve ' oting mem- bers, nine from the First Class, three from the Second Class, and three non-voting members from the Third Class. " WSll was founded on the belief that along with thorough development of the intellect of the college student there must be development of those personal qualities which will contribute to a life of integrity and self-discipline. For this reason, our Honor System is the most important aspect of a cadet ' s life.

Posted on the lockers of every room in barracks are a set of regulations and guides as set forth by the Executive and General Committees, and which are " of, by, and for the cadets. " It is this sheet that is a reminder to the cadet of the traditions, customs, class privileges and reputation of the Corps. To create a unity without a corresponding loss of indi- viduality, to promote a harmony between, and to main- tain the distinctive privileges of, the upper three classes without depriving any one class of its just rights — this class privilege tradition has shown itself to be an excellent preceptor in teaching respect to those in a higher position — to punish fairly and impartially an ' infraction of jsrivi- leges as well as breaches of gentlemanly conduct which reflect on the reputation of the Corps, and to uphold the traditions of VMI. To these ends the Executive and General Committees are devoted. lembership is representative of the Corjjs leaders, and thus any action taken is upheld, not only by the Corps, but b ' the Institute as well. 19 BOMB .l MES ).

THE COMMANDERS Jack Christie Leader Penn Whitescarver Busiiicufi Manager " An outstanding new sound. " This was typical of the many comments which followed the ' 59- ' 60 Commanders wherever they went. This year ' s 14-piece orchestra has more than lived up to its pre-season expectations, estab- lishing new enthusiasts and followers, and of course, re- taining the old ones. Aside from providing smooth, danceable music of current popular and standard selec- tions from its large and varied repertoire, the Commanders this year featured its Combo, which supplemented the larger groups with Dixieland jazz, rock and roll and progressive jazz. The full laand also had its special added attractions, tributes to the big name bands by which the Commanders copied their sound and style. Ably letl by Jack Christie, the Commanders were filled with young talent in addition to five first classmen. Jack, as well as Penn Whitescarver, J?uck Gough, Al Zay, and Bill King began their pleasuralile trips four years ago and helped to uphold the ( ' (imniander ' s widespread musical reputation. Musically, this versatile and culorful organization sur- passed the fame of any other cadet group ever heaiMJ in the four-state area. THE HOP COMMITTEE Joseph T. Steavart President William O. Giles Vice President Richard L. Sauder Treasurer Again this year, the Keydets ' friend, the Hop Com- mittee, has done its best to please. A steady succession of the finest music-makers in the land, such as Glenn Miller, Buddy Morrow, Kai Yinding, Lionel Hampton, and George Shearing, have greatly added to the enjoy- ment of the Keydets, and tn their short, ever pleasant, reprieve from normal lunn-(lruin activities. In addition, a new set of hop privileges was instituted this year, which, at the outset, pleased the Corps, as well as the patrons of tlu ' Institute. The Hop Conunittee tries to please, and obviously has done so, more this year than in the past.

P " -! m- nm The student chapters of the American Society of Civil Engineers have been organized to help col- lege men learn as much as possible about the " practical " sides of their future profession. Here at VIMI we are indeed fortunate to have one of the most active chapters in the country. The ASCE Chapter now holds more awards from the National ASCE than any other chapter in the country. This record stands without an equal among col- leges in the United States. The membership of the student chapter is com- prised of all first, second and third class civils. Each year the department provides field trips to various points of local and state interest. These trips provide additional engineering information that the student cannot possibly obtain in the classroom. All these activities of the ASCE combine to make the VMl Civil Engineering major a better prepared man, both academically and socially, for the professional world. E. C. Emerson President K. B.

Students in these branches, assisted by a faculty member called the Counselor, meet and work together to practice the skills of communication, cooperation, and organization so necessary to the practicing engineer and businessman today. The ySll branch was chartered on 1 JMay lOSO. In the past forty years the organization ' s objec- tives have been to foster those qualities not de- veloped in the classroom, to broaden the cadet ' s knowledge of the modern world of engineering, and to provide a place where the cadet can re- ceive recognition for his ideas and achievements. This year ' s organization has been entertained by guest speakers and cadets alike. In the second se- mester a student technological paper competi- tion was held to give each cadet an opportunity to present his ideas. AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY The Chemical Society at VMI is a student affiliate of the American Chemical Society. The Society consists of the chemistry majors from the upper three classes. It is not mandatory to join but generally everyone who is eligible does so. The purpose of the ACS is to present to the chemistry majors a program pertaining to their field of study and act as a supplement to the chemistry curricidum. The programs generally consist of a movie or a speaker from some industrial firm or a ]5ro- fessor from another college. In the spring, the first classmen make several field trips to nearby industrial firms. At the end of each year the ACS final banquet is held and the president for the coming year and the faculty advisor are selected by the students. W. C. SiMPSOX President R. L. CouPLAND Secretary J.

The American Institute of Physics has grown equally, and has become a valuable aid in correlating the everyday academic endeavors with their practical applica- tion outside the classroom. A great deal of interest has been shown toward the programs presented to the group. These include movies, pertinent speakers, trips to areas of interest to the potential physicist, and parties for nothing better than good fellowship. This year shoidd prove to be a bright one for the AIP, and we hope will serve as a stepping- stone to an even better one next vear. VIRGINIA ACADEMY OF SCIENCE The Virginia Academy of Science is a state- wide organization composed of men and women interested in the sciences and their advancement. The V NII Chapter is composed of members of the Biology curriculum who show interest in this type of activity, particularly those cadets that desire to broaden their classroom and laboratory work with a related activity. Each year the officers of the club and Dr. Bromfield Ridley, faculty advisor, attempt to present a variety of programs from various fields of science to help develop and encourage interest and give vaulable information for medical school and the years to come. Each year the ' I Chapter sends representa- tives to the annual state convention. Troy H. Willi. ms President AsHBY B. Taylor Vice-President George W. Robbins Secretary :iK■l viy■i ' »T?

Colonel Tutwiler opened the year with a talk on his tour of England and France last summer, followed by Colonel Lancaster ' s lecture on Faust Legends. In its second year of existence, the Society is composed of thirty members, some of %vhich are members of the faculty.

The club has the distinction of being the largest organization within the Corps. This year the club visited Langley Air Force Base so that the members could see the various activities being conducted there. The club succeeds not only in furnishing cailets with valuable information but i rovides a well-rounded entertainment program throughout the car.

It is comprised of I ' epresentatives from religious clubs organized in barracks. The Religious Council provided for the new cadets a religious service on their first Sunday here, and a picnic at wh ich time they learned about religious activities at VMI, enjoyed recreation and a vesper service. The J I Hall services started last year have met with a great deal of success. Because of con- tributions of the Corps at these services the Religious Council is now in a financial position to aid local needy organizations, thus becoming an integral part not only of the Corps of Cadets but also of the community to which the Corps belongs. Through the chapel services, church services in Lexington, Bible study, and Suday evening fellowships in the churches in Lexington, the Council strives to provide for cadets a program that will help them to develop spiritually as well as intellectually.

This meeting took place on July 5, 184 2. The name was changed a few years later to the Society of Alumni. Still later it became the VMI Alumni Association and in 1919 was incorporated under this name. Any cadet who leaves VMI in good standing — not expelled by the Honor Court — automatically becomes a member of the Association. Tlicre are no dues but a member is expected to annually contribute through liis class agent a sum in proportion to the obligation he feels to the V II. The Almnni Association meets annually on Alumni Day at Finals. How- ever, there are call meetings, if necessary. The officers of the Association con- sists of a President, two Vice-Presidents (1st and ' 2nd), Executive Secretary, and a Treasurer. The governing body is the Board of Directors, formerly known as the Executive Committee. This Board, which meets four times a year, is elected by the membership of the Alumni Association and is fifteen in niunber, l ' 20th of which must be from lasses that have graduated in the last teii years. Each Chaiiter having a mcTiiliership of twenty-fi -e or more is entitled to one addilional member on the Board. Chapter Representatives, while elected by the ' li:ipters, are confirmed by the General Association at Finals. They have the , anie rights and privileges as the elected members and are governed by the same rules and regulations. The Alumni Association is financed by monies annually raised by the Class Agents. Our Budget is about $35,000 a year and the money raised is spent in services to the Almnni, which are briefly stated as follows: Financing the Alumni Office, Operation of Alumni Hall, Alumni Rei ' icw free to all Alumni four times a vear, banquet at Finals, senrling speakers to Alumni meetings, salaries;, |i, ' Mi al,ir, - to llie Piililir Rrlili..M- nfl ' l.-rr, S.H i:;l S.TUritv and Pension Plan r.ir .iiiphu, , ' ,, |,ivMril iiii; Hi.Mh- I. y_r , ll.

V VMI — PENN STATE 21 On a sunny September afteriuion in I ' liiversity Park, Pennsylvania, against the powerful Xittany Lion:5 of Penn State, the potential of the VMI football team became evident Penn State, nationally ranked and heavily favored came otf the field at the final gun with a great deal of respect for this VMI team. The Keydets threw up a tight defense, led by Quinn, Shuba, Badgett, Haberlein, and Caples, that all but stymied the Xittany Lions early in the game. It appeared as if it would be a scoreless tie at halftime, but Penn State moved 50 yards in the closing minutes to register tlieir first score and made it 7-0 at the intermission.

With the field a sea of mud and the rain still coming down, VMI found themselves facing a tight eight-man line that virtually stopped their usually fast and deceptive ground game. With Howard Dyer at the helm the Keydets took to the air and completed the tir-st five passes and had a total for the day of seven out of nine. Three of the seven were for touchdowns and the ' ' Mississippi Gambler " added another one himself on a quarterback sneak that gave the Keydets a 34-7 victory over Davidson.

The cadet corps saw again a quick, alert VMI team that was in its stride and im- proving with every game.

It was the kind of day you want to curl up in front of the fire just to stay warm. But the Big Red Team had a job to do and they knew it, so the boys from the warm South prepared themselves to do what they knew they had to do. Playing in thick mud and a freezing wind the Keydets combined a deadly passing game and a good running game to completely dominate the ball game. Even though the Big Red teiim played in Lehigh ' s end of the fifld ;iniost the entire duration of the game, thev onlv managed to score once with an explosive -16-yard pass play from Howard Dyer to Dick Evans. Nelson Elliott kicked for the conversion which proved to be the winning point. The " Engineers " managed to score in the ' nd half on a pass play; the Big Red led by Shuba, Caples, and Haberlein stopped them cold on an attempted two-point try. When the gun ended the Keydets were cold and muddy, but there were smiles on their faces because they had fought hard against the elements and the " Engineers " to come out on the long end of a 7-6 victory.

Meanwhile a hard-charging Ke,vdet line and alert baekfield held the publicized Maguire and Nettles to only three harmless completions in eleven attempts. The result of the fine offensive display by the entire Big Red Team and its rugged and alert defensive play was a com|)aratively ea.sy victory over the Bulldogs and a big boost toward the Conference crown. ,:6Pi W BaSCGESffl Left: Dyer gets off quickie against Bulldogs.

Before ' 27,500 spectators the powerful Keydets of VJII romped over the six-point favorite Gobblers from Xa. Tech to gain their second Southern Conference Championship in tliree years and also the Big Five title. Lee Badgett, the outstanding center from the Institute, gave an indication of things to come only four seconds after the whistle blew when he smacked down the heralded Alger Pugh as the Gobbler halfback at- tempted to return the opening kickoff. From that point the Keydets never let up and it was their game all the way. VMTs first score came on a Dvcr-to-E aTis i ass on a fourth and ten situation as Evans jumped high above two defenders and took the ball for the touchdown.

With the small and fast backfield only able to move well on occasions, the line picked up the slack and turned in a fine job every game.

Since Coach Miller came to VMI two years ago, his goal has been to get his team in the tournament and this year was the year of the pay-off. Last year his team failed to make the toiu-nament more from hard luck than lack of ability. This season, though with a very young team, composed mostly of sophomores, he managed to beat Davidson twice and Richmond once, which was enough to get into the tournament. Because of youth the team was not as consistent as it would have been had more age been available. After three long months of preparation, they opened the season with an excellent performance against William and Mary, a game that was lost merely by one point. This per- formance, against supposedly one of the powerhouses of the Southern Conference, made many people take notice and won many admirers in the very beginning. The very next game brought out the double nature of the team. Playing against Bridgewater College, a team rated as a pushover, they simply took to the floor and hustled and caught the Keydets by surprise for a one-point victory. The next .several games saw the team at its average. They lost to George Wash- ington and West Virginia, though they gave the Mountaineers the toughest game of the early season. The Hampden- Sydney game was won after three over- times. Except for the Davidson games, this was a typical victory. A similar game was against Richmond which took them one overtime to win. Xevertheless they did win these games, and that is what counts. Innnediately before Christmas the team flew to Owensboro, Kentucky where they participated in the Ail-American Tournament. This, too, was a very bad week end for the Keydets. After wining and dining at all the banquets, they found that the games were going to be touglier than they had expected. Against Kentucky Wesleyan, the victors of the tournament, they lost a relatively close game. Coach Miller ' s famous press, which enabled them to stay in the game l)y stealing the ball, was the deciding factor in the outcome of the score. All in all it was a rather hectic game, featuring an erratic fast break on both sides. Very little defensive ball was played, which caught VMI off balance because the Southern Conference coaches stress de- fense a great deal. The team was awarded the Good Sportsmanship trophy and Joe Gedro was nominated to the All-Tourna- ment team. After Christmas vacation the team lost to the University of Virginia, then went on a tour to the Carolina ' s where they played Davidson and the Citadel. The Citadel, a Southern Conference power defeated V. M. I. Then the fol- lowing week Davidson lost to the fighting Keydets liy almost thirty points. After this Carolina road-trip, the team began to sparkle, first by upsetting Rich- mond at the arena, which was an over- time game, was almost lost hail it not been for Lawson, who came through for the Keydets, scoring eight points in the overtime. The team had now re-won the admiration of fans once more. The next game was with Tech. The field house was packed, even with the extra seats, and the team did not let the fans down, for they battled the Hokies all the way through an overtime only to lose by one point. Examination time followe l the Tech game, and this la -off. which amounted to ahnost ten days, hurt the Keydets more lluin anything else during the season. .Vfter examinations, they won no games, though many were lost by close margins. Next year, with a lot of new sopho- mores coming u to the varsity, the Keydets should hv stronger tiian they were this season. i E2SK S . ., ,-».JM..._M.

Having lost six of the eight starters from last year, the job of building a new team into a winning one, all in one season, seems to be a major acconi])lishment for these boys. Before the Christmas holidays the team lost to Appalachian and Franklin and larshall but managed victories over both the I ' niversity of Virginia and Gallaudet to give them an even record and considerable encouragement as they continued their schedule in January. The team was not only eager for their next match, l)ut the ' were consitlerably over weight as they met defending champion West Virginia who overpoweretl the Keydets 24-10. After this, the team seemed to spring back as they scored three consecutive victories over The Citadel, Davidson and the University of North Carolina. Finally, the matmen tangled with powerful Virginia Tech, giving the Gobblers a real scare before taking the short end of a 19-1, ' 5 tally. In the Conference tournament the Keydets certainly jiroved the success of their rebuilding year as they walked off with second place, bowing only to the Hokies, and producing two champions, Co-Captain Brian Kane and Bill Daniels. Alan Bamforth and Richard Bartlet t were runners-up in their class. Jerry Connors, Johnny Merrill, Freddie Nlangino and Dennis Merklinger also added medals to the Keydet tally. Coach Massey, in his second year as coach, has not only produced another winning team, but has built a team that will win in future vears too. if r BILL DANIEL z? ..

The scjuad dropped meets early in the season to Maryland and North Carolina who displayed their All-Americans in true form, and then East Carolina sneaked out a one point victory after the s [uad defeated Davidson for their first victory of the season. Co-Captains Bill Keens and Brad Lampshire led the Keydets with double winners Ken Ederle and George Collins right behind. The next four opponents fell as the Keydets marched in toward the Con- ference title. Pittsburg, Wake Forest, West Virginia and Virginia were all dunked in that order before the Ilokies of Mrginia Tech took the final meet by three points. With the Tech score still fresh in their minds, the s(|uad took the conference tournament by storm to complete their successful sea.son. In the tournament George Collins won the 1500 meter free style with Ware Smith and Fred Consolvo placing fifth and sixth respectively. Lampshire won the butterfly, both 100 and -200 yard events, while Ederle took second, Webber fifth and Lee in sixth. Also Prince, Mathews, Ederle, Kane and Keens placed well in the tournament tallies. Coach Arnold completed the event with his unscheduled entry into the |)()ol.

Larry Williams was placed on the All-Conference team for the third straight year and Captain Johnny McDougall for the second straight. The Keydets doubled the score of their nearest opponent in the Conference. In dual meets, Cieorgetown slipped away with a victory in the toughest match of the season. The scoring honors passed back and forth among the top five men all season with Larry Williams, Bob Huddle and Johnny IcDougall finishing consistently in the top group. Bill Braithwaite and Chuck Drescher edged into the scoring quite often with runners like Bill Browning, Dick Parker, Warren IMcNamara and Arch Ramirez helping to push back the opposition into higher scoring positions (low scores win in cross country).

Durrette and Crow came back to give Larry Williams and Chuck Drescher a hand in setting a record in the two-mile relay, and Williams finished the night by running the anchor leg on the record-breaking four-mile relay team of Bill Braithwaite, Charlie Carlton, and Johnny McDougall. The Keydets also copped firsts in the sprint shuttle relay, and the two-mile run. The next time the Keydets saw competition was at the Southern Conference Championships, which they turned into a ridiculously easy victory over The Citadel, another pre-meet favorite. The Red, White and Yellow won seven events to finish with 69 points to 27 and % for the runner-up Bulldogs. Toj,: Quinn, (■la. . .nini, ' l man.

A 71-59 drubbing by Virginia he discounted because it came the day after the Corps ' annual Spring furlough. Similarly, he wrote off an 89-50 loss to The Citadel, as this one came on the day of the spring Alumni football game, and the cinder squad was without the very valuable assistance of its football player- sprinters and hurdlers. Even with the losses, however, the Key- dets served notice where it would be tough sledding for their opponents, V!MI .seems well-nigh untouchable in the middle and distance runs. Although indoor ace quarter miler Stu Crow was upset in both meets, his indoor performances indicate he is capable of much better times than he has posted thus far outdoors. With fleet-footed Larr - ' illainis in the 880, backed up by Chuck Urescher and Suiiley Burnett, both potential sub-two-minute men, the Keydets should not have too much to worry about here. Williams also doubles in the mile, teaming up with Charlie Carlton and Bill Braithwaite, both under 4:. ' 50 in indoor competition. Carlton and Braithwaite also run the two-mile, along with Bob Huddle, a consistent performer at the ten-minute mark, which he should break outdoors.

Kern also does the hop, step, and jump, another event Coach Corniack doesn ' l worry about too much. To help liim forgel worrying is IMike NIoss, 7th in the nation in this event last year, and also a 6-2 high jumper. Bill Phillips, who consistently clears 0-1 in the high jump, also chips in the points here. X ' MFs big weakness is in the field events, but even here there are standouts who poini to the Keydets having a 50-50 chance to get into the running for the Southern Con- ference crown. Jon Quinn and Kurt McDowell can both do 45 feet in the shot, although they ' ll probably have to be content with a second or third in the Conference meet, due to some big guns in this event from the Citadel. Same for the discus. Bob Reitz had approached ' ■200 feet in the javelin last year, although he hasn ' t yet come up to par this year. Vith all these top-grade performers, it may not look like anybody but " S l can take the SC crown. But strong teams from Citadel and Furman will challenge for the top seeded position. They finished one-two last year to VMI ' s poor third. The Keydets must put a lot of faith in their " Second string, " men like Darden Xelms in the 440, Howard [oss in the 100 and iH), along with Kenny Scott, Raljjh O ' llarrow, Jim Gillespie teaming up with Ci-ow and Durrette in the mile relay, and Clay and Bradley in the pole vault.

They demonstrated their power in the opening game of the season by defeating powerfid George Washington, 15-8. The ability to hit the long ball along with a tight defense enabled them to smash the Colonials for tlie first time in a number of years. The infield is made up of Diek Jarvis at first base, Frank Grayson at second, Warren Eddins at short and Roger Spencer, who hit .340 last year, at third. Phillip Barnes, Ronald Gilnian and Bobby Mitchell are capable of taking over if any of the regulars are sidelined. Captain Ray Conklin, Al Sczappa and Jerry Coen arc patrolling the pastures although 0.scar lahry and Joe Gedro are very likely to remain in the outfield when not pitching because of their big bats. Mike Wash is also capable of breaking into the line-up quite often. Ed ToUey is handling the job behind the plate with George Collins the reserve catcher. The pitching staif is the .strong spot on the team with labry, Gedro, Ken Johnson, George Henning and Dave Bis.set, all experienced ])crformers. Top: Roger Spencer and Ray Conklin (Capt.) Middle: ilike Wash and Joe Gedro Bottom: Ed ToUey and Oscar ilabry Coach Lr)iiis " Weenie " Miller is in his second year as head coach and he is al)ly supporled h - Coach Saunders. Special eini)hasis is lieing placed on de- fense and l)ase running this season because of the speed found in the out- field. Spencer and Jarvis should ])rovide the leadership in the infield due to their vast anioiuit of exi)erience. This is Spencers second year of varsity Ijall and the third year for long ball hittei ' Jarvis. Much of the ])ower this year will come from the port side. (onklin, Sczappa, Tolley and Mabry swing from the left and all are capaljle of dri ' ing the ball out of the ]jark. " The Hill " serves as the fence on VMI ' s diamond and it is ex- pected that (ledro. Spencer and Jarvis will find it frt ' |uently. Since ( ' onklin is the only first classman on the s |uad. Coach Miller is already talking about his prospects for next year when he should field his strongest team as , et. With hustle, determination and the ,ser ices of Coach stiller the squad is looking forward to at least a break even season this year with the team sliowing considerable im])rovement as the .season passes.

The rockets conquering outer space are big and powerful . . . but only as long as they are directed and cared for by men.

In ] articular, we would like to thank Lieutenant Colonel Alexander H. INIorrison, faculty advisor to the IJoMii and Mrs. Julie Martin of the Public Relations Office. Colonel Morrison generously devoted many hours of his time to work with the staff to meet their deadlines and give advice from his many years of ex- perience with publications. Mrs. Martin was the real " life-saver " for the staff, and we are most grateful for her services because she struggled through all one hundred and eighty of those first class write-ups and that alone is a real job.
